Nicole: Hey, wait for me.

Julie Ann: I wonder if Mac has seen this.

Liz: I doubt it. It's too quiet in there. This has been getting worse all week.

Julie Ann: I know.

Felicia: You are self-righteous and self-arrogant!

Mitch: Why can't you just do what I ask you to do?

[Phone rings]

Liz: Julie Ann, would you get that, please?

Felicia: Do what you ask me to do? Are you kidding me?

Mitch: Yes, just do what I ask you to do.

Felicia: You don't talk to me, you tell me things! You treat me like you're some kind of a drill sergeant.

Mitch: I do not treat you like Iím some sort of drill sergeant.

Felicia: Well, what would you call it?

Mitch: Well, it's not a drill sergeant.

Felicia: Well, what is it?

Mitch: I only think I just asked you to do something. I thought you would do it.

Felicia: Well, what are you, my father? Are they gone?

Mitch: Yes.

Felicia: All the office workers, too?

Mitch: So far so good, yes.

Felicia: We're getting very good at this, aren't we?

Mitch: Well, I think we're getting too good. If Marsten knows and this comes out -- well, if he doesn't know by now, he's going to know by today's end.

Felicia: Why?

Mitch: Well, I'm sure Liz Matthews will have it on the evening news.

Felicia: Ah, good point.

Mitch: God, can you believe this?

Felicia: What?

Mitch: I'm sure the rival papers are having a field day with this.

Felicia: Poor Mac. He must be at his breaking point.

Mitch: Some way, somehow, we're going to have to stop this.

Mac: Now they're all after us!

Rachel: Darling, it's open season on Cory Publishing. The papers are bound to print things like that.

Mac: Bennett Publishing is a crooked operation!

Liz: We don't know that, Mac!

Mac: Well, why come after us? Why Cory?

Rachel: We're just going to have to fight harder, Mac.

Julie Ann: We'll have to do whatever we can.

Mac: If Drew Marsten and that chief of his want to play dirty, then we'll just play it their way and beat them at their own game.

Rachel: We can't do that, Mac.

Mac: Well, I'm not going to sit around here like a lame duck. They're not going to smear the Cory name and get away with it. They want to fight, they'll get a fight.

Rachel: Mac --

Mac: Bennett Publishing and everybody that works for it is in for a big surprise.

Rachel: We haven't lost any ground, Mac. The papers are printing these things because it's a good story, not because it's based on hard fact.

Liz: Rachel's right, it's business as usual here.

Mac: I appreciate your reassurance. If I could just find out who my adversary really is.

Julie Ann: Just tell us what we can do, Mac.

Mac: Oh, are you still getting a lot of calls from stockholders about the status of the --

Julie Ann: Calls have doubled since you got back from Europe.

Mac: Well, then Iíd like you and Liz to put out memos to everyone. We have no intention of losing this company, and no other information whatsoever is to go out.

Liz: We'll get right on it, Mac.

Rachel: We'll get through this, Mac.

Mac: I just hope we're still running the company when it's over.

Rachel: You've got to calm down. There's no point in you getting sick over this.

Liz: Yes, Mac, then what will we do?

Mac: Oh, I think you'd all handle it very well. You know, they say loyalty is very rare these days. Maybe it's because we've got so much of it in this company.

[Knock on door]

Mac: Come in!

Felicia: Are you crazy?

Mitch: Hey, what are you doing? You think I'm crazy?

Felicia: Yes! Yes, you are!

Matt: I think Mitch and Felicia are having a slight disagreement.

Liz: Well, how are you, Matthew?

Matt: Fine. I rushed over as soon as I read that trash in the newspaper. If you need my help for a counterattack, Iím here.

Rachel: Thank you.

Matt: I think I got a little more than I bargained for out there, though.

Julie Ann: I can't believe they're still at it.

Liz: Well, perhaps I should go out and see if there's anything that I can do.

Mac: Liz, I think they'll handle it fine without us barging in.

Liz: Oh, well --

Mac: I really need you to wire this statement to Zurich.

Liz: Ok.

Rachel: So, how are you doing?

Matt: I'm worried about you two.

Rachel: Don't worry about me. It's Mac Iím worried about. He's ready to explode.

Matt: Hmm, must have been a lot of blasting going on out there. Do you know that Mitch and Felicia are --?

Rachel: No, they seemed fine last night. We were out to dinner with them. Did you hear about Jamie and Lisa?

Matt: I heard. Jamie told me. Another one bites the dust.

Rachel: One of these days it's going to be you, you know.

Matt: Oh, no, no. No, too many problems.

Rachel: Don't say that. Think about Mac and me.

Matt: Well, it hasn't been smooth sailing for the two of you.

Rachel: No, I know that, but still --

Matt: Yeah, but I hope -- don't get me wrong, I hope Jamie and Lisa live happily ever after, but the thought of me married? Ugh.

Rachel: Well, I have to admit that the thought of you marrying at this point is alarming.

Matt: Yeah. I mean, but look at dad out there. I mean, him and Felicia, they're not even married and they're already arguing and everything. I don't think I'd be up for that.

Felicia: Ahem. Well, you're certainly having fun badmouthing my sense of style, aren't you?

Mitch: I don't like Matthew seeing this.

Felicia: I know, I know, but look, we'll tell him all about it when it's over. He'll think it's a great gag.

Mitch: Sure.

Felicia: I know he will. You should also tell Mac everything you know about Marsten.

Mitch: I can't do that.

Felicia: Honey, you have information that could help Mac.

Mitch: It's information, but it's no proof.

Felicia: Yes, it is. Why do you think that we're trying to get everyone to think we hate each other?

Mitch: Because this is all hearsay, which I happen to believe, but it doesn't mean that Mac will.

Felicia: Why wouldn't he?

Mitch: Well, for one thing, all the information comes from a cellmate. I mean, it's not like, you know, that's something that Mac is going to go on as reliable information.

Felicia: Honey, facts are facts. It doesn't matter where they come from.

Mitch: Why should he trust an ex-con? Would you?

Felicia: I do. And don't refer to yourself like that. It makes me a little nervous.

Mitch: Look if my source is correct, this information could topple an entire takeover attempt.

Felicia: Exactly. That's why Mac needs to know everything you know. He's going to be furious with you that you know that Marsten is laundering money or whatever else he's doing and you're not telling him.

Mitch: Look, I know that, I know that, and you're right, but I can't do it now.

Felicia: Why?

Mitch: Well, if Marsten knows that that information comes from me, then it's very possible that you're in danger.

Felicia: But that's perfect.

Mitch: What do you mean, it's perfect?

Felicia: It's exactly what we want.

Mitch: It is?

Felicia: Yes! Don't you see? We're trying to make everybody think that we're breaking up, especially Marsten. Then I go in for the kill. Get it?

Mitch: What do you mean, "The kill"?

Felicia: Well, I'll make him think that Iím interested in him. Of course, he'll think that Iím on the rebound from you. But I'll get very close to him, I'll make him feel good, he'll start to open up, and he may -- he may -- tell me some secrets.

Mitch: I don't want him opening up and telling you secrets.

Felicia: Honey, you'll be right there. You'll be my little bodyguard.

Mitch: This isn't a game.

Felicia: I know that.

Mitch: Look, I don't want to see this paper taken over. I don't want to see whatever's going to happen with Mac. I mean, I want to help him, but I don't want to see you in danger. Marsten is too dangerous not to be taken seriously.

Mitch: I've already done more investigating.

Drew: Good. Then you found out that I have absolutely nothing to do with any of these implications.

Mitch: No, not at all. That's not what I found out at all.

Drew: Where do you get your sources from, Mr. Blake? The janitors? The garbage men? Or are you just making this up as we go along?

Mitch: You'd be amazed to find out what you can learn behind bars -- even if, you know, your own cell might not be, say, as comfortable as some of the others.

Drew: I think you're out of line here.

Mitch: You're working on more than business.

Drew: Often, there's a very fine line between a personal life and a business life.

Mitch: And in your case, it happens to be that that fine line is somewhat crooked, isn't it?

Drew: This is coming from an ex-con? I've never been in jail.

Mitch: No, you pay other people to do that for you. Is that correct?

Drew: You tell whoever sent you here from Cory Publishing that I resent these ridiculous setup tactics, and Iíll not have my business interests -- my legitimate business -- interfered with!

Mitch: Your legitimate business?

Drew: I take my business very serious, Mr. Blake. To me, losing a deal is like losing someone you love. Do you understand?

Mitch: Is that a threat?

Amanda: I think it looks great.

Sam: I still think it's too much blue.

Amanda: Maybe.

Sam: Maybe?

[Phone rings]

Sam: Maybe?

Amanda: I'll get the phone.

Sam: Get the phone, get the phone.

Amanda: Hello?

Drew: Hello. May I speak to Sam Fowler, please?

Amanda: Yeah, just a minute. Sam?

Sam: Your voice sounds like it's getting worse, hon. Hello?

Drew: Sam, it's Drew Marsten.

Sam: Hi. What can I do for you?

Drew: Sam, are you feeling all right?

Sam: Yeah, I'm fine. Just the baby's asleep.

Drew: Oh, I see, I see. Listen, we need to get together. I've got to go over some things about the job. You have plans for lunch?

Sam: No, that'll be fine. What time?

Drew: Oh, I don't know.

Sam: Well, where do you want to meet?

Drew: Your choice.

Sam: Ok, how about Maryís place?

Drew: That sounds fine. By the way, how's their wine list?

Sam: Their wine list? It's kind of small, but they have the best imported beer selection in North America.

Drew: Gee, that sounds charming, Sam. How about 12:00?

Sam: All right, that sounds fine.

Drew: Good. Looking forward to it.

Sam: All right, see you then.

Drew: Bye.

Sam: Bye.

Amanda: Who was that?

Sam: That was my boss. He wants to meet me for lunch.

Amanda: Sam, really, Maryís place?

Sam: I thought you liked Maryís place.

Amanda: You know that I do, but the president of your company?

Sam: Come on, he'll love it. He wants to talk about some business.

Amanda: Your job hasn't started yet.

Sam: I know that. Maybe that's what he wants to talk about.

Amanda: There's nothing wrong, is there?

Sam: No, everything is fine.

Amanda: What time are you going to meet him?

Sam: 12:00.

Amanda: I think I'm going to get Alli dressed. I'll take her down to Cory. I mean, after what I saw on the television this morning, I think mom and dad can use a little dose of baby talk.

Sam: Yeah. Actually, you know what you could do? You could take -- or call Josie and have her meet you down there. That way she can take care of the kid and you could take your parents out for lunch.

Amanda: After I show Alli around.

Sam: Sure.

Amanda: What a great idea, Sammy.

Sam: I'm full of good ideas, Amanda.

Amanda: Right. Taking your boss to Maryís place will be really impressive.

Sam: Oh, come on, he'll love it. He's probably buying, anyway. This way he'll save some money.

Amanda: Oh, I love you. Always the practical one.

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: I'm going to go get dressed.

Sam: Oh, why don't you go get dressed?

Amanda: I'm going to go get dressed.

Sam: Ok, go get dressed. I'll take care of the kid.

Amanda: I'll just be a minute.

Sam: Yeah. What do you think, Alli? Do you want to meet daddy's boss today?

Amanda: Don't even think it, Fowler.

Sam: Fine. All right, maybe next week, ok?

Josie: Well, what's the office like, Captain Cool?

Matt: Neat. Lots of leather.

Josie: Do you mean neat "tidy" or neat "cool"?

Matt: Tidy. Definitely tidy.

Josie: Well, sounds great. What's your real dad's office like?

Matt: A mess, but neat "cool," you know?

Josie: Well, I like real orderly places with beautiful furniture and big windows.

Matt: I don't know, I kind of like that stuff. I mean, that's how my house is. But I was at this house about a week ago. It was really simple, and, I mean, some of the walls weren't even painted yet, you know?

Josie: Yeah, I know the feeling.

Matt: What, are there renovations going on at your house?

Josie: Oh, yes. Mother likes to make her own little nest.

Matt: Well, anyway, this house was really lived in. It had a good feeling about it. I liked it.

Josie: Where were you --?

Sharlene: Sweetheart, where are you?

Josie: In the kitchen! I have to go.

Matt: Hey, wait a minute!

Josie: No, I have to. My mom's calling for alterations or something.

Matt: Well, call back in an hour.

Josie: I'll try.

Matt: Ok, please?

Josie: Ok. I'll talk to you then.

Matt: Bye.

Josie: Bye. Hi, Mom.

Sharlene: For someone who doesn't have a friend in Bay City, you spend an awful lot of time on that phone.

Josie: Well, I was just --

Sharlene: You and I have got to start pulling our weight around here.

Josie: I have a job.

Sharlene: Yeah, babysitting a couple of times a week buys two cans of coffee.

Josie: Well, I've already saved some money.

Sharlene: I hope you're not still calling that party phone thing. If that phone bill looks like it did last month, your uncle Jasonís going to have your head, and I won't blame him.

Josie: I'll be more careful.

Sharlene: Well, now that this place is coming together, I have to get a job.

Josie: Where?

Sharlene: I don't know. You got any ideas?

Josie: No.

Sharlene: Well, thanks for the vote of confidence.

[Phone rings]

Sharlene: I hope that's Jason.

Josie: Where is he, anyway?

Sharlene: I don't know. He's being very mysterious, gone a week.

Josie: Weird. Hello? Hi, Amanda. Oh, sure. No, no problem. Let me write it down. Ok, I got it. I'll catch the next bus and I'll be there when I can, ok? Bye.

Sharlene: What did she want?

Josie: She's heading out to her mother's and she wants me to go meet her at her pa's office and take Alli. You know, I was thinking, maybe I should ask her if she knows anyone else who needs a sitter.

Sharlene: Well, before you take on another job, I want you to clear it with me first.

Josie: Why?

Sharlene: I just want to know what you're doing, that's all.

Josie: Why?

Sharlene: Oh, come on, baby, let's not start this again.

Josie: Don't call me "baby." I'm not a baby.

Sharlene: No, you're not.

Josie: Mom, I --

Sharlene: What?

Josie: I really try. I want to do what's best.

Sharlene: I know that.

Josie: No, you donít. You don't trust me at all.

Sharlene: I do, too. It's just that you've been pushing it lately.

Josie: I -- I just want to know what I did to make you hate me so much.

Sharlene: Hate you? How can you even say that?

Josie: Am I that much of a disappointment?

Sharlene: Josie --

Josie: Why -- why do you think that I'm such a tramp?

Sharlene: Sweetó

[Big band music plays]

Cass: Where do you suppose that music is coming from?

Nicole: It's the phantom of the opera.

Cass: No, it's not. That's "Sweet Georgia Brown."

Nicole: No, no, I mean, the phantom. The singing phantom?

Cass: Oh, that was supposed to be funny?

Nicole: You really are losing your sense of humor.

Cass: Huh. Do you think anybody's in the back room?

Nicole: Well, where else would it be coming from?

Cass: You're scared.

Nicole: No, I'm not.

Cass: Yes, you are. That means you're starting to believe what I've been telling you.

Nicole: Oh, you're crazy.

Cass: Like a fox. I knew if I involved you in this you'd have to come around.

Nicole: No, I'm not scared. I -- this place just gives me the creeps. I told you that the first time we came here.

Cass: Yeah?


Nicole: What's that?

Cass: Shh! You're a lousy liar, you know that?

Nicole: Fine. Fine. I'll just find out for myself.

Cass: Fine.

Nicole: I'm going. How do I get into these situations?

[Music stops]

Cass: They know we're here.

Nicole: "They"? "They" who?

Cass: Shh, shh. Did you hear that?

Nicole: No, I don't hear anything.

Cass: Shh!

Nicole: Cass?

Cass: What?

Nicole: Why don't we just go home? Why don't we just leave now?

[Glass breaks]

[Nicole screams]

[Cass yells]

Sharlene: Josie, what are you talking about?

Josie: I know that's what you think of me.

Sharlene: That's not true. How could you even think such a thing?

Josie: I heard you say it.

Sharlene: What?

Josie: I heard you talking to Uncle Jason right here in this kitchen.

Sharlene: When?

Josie: I don't know. A couple days ago. I mean, what difference does it make? I heard you say it. You can't deny it.

Sharlene: I never said that about you. I never said you were a tramp. Josie, honey, you are my baby.

Josie: How can you stand there and lie to me?

Sharlene: I don't know what you heard, but whatever it was, you misunderstood.

Josie: There was no misunderstanding. I heard every word.

Sharlene: Then you hear these words -- I love you Josie. You are the one right thing in my life. Do you hear me? I could never say that or think that about you. Never.

Josie: Oh, mama!

Sharlene: I don't know what you heard, but I swear I never said that about you.

Josie: Then why do you treat me that way?

Sharlene: Oh, I don't mean to, I don't mean to. I -- I guess I just -- it's hard for me to accept that you're as grown up as you are. I'm used to you asking me permission to do everything. I don't know how to raise an adult child.

Josie: Well, you'd better get used to it. I'm not getting any younger.

Sharlene: You are a sweet, beautiful girl. I want to see you do so much with your life. That is all I've ever wanted.

Josie: Mama, can't you let me make my own decisions?

Sharlene: Some, yeah. Oh, Josie, honey, let me be a mother for a little longer.

Josie: Ok. Just don't smother me.

Sharlene: Do I do that?

Josie: Is Uncle Jason tone deaf?

Sharlene: Oh, you are something else.

Josie: Oh. I -- I just want to be my own person, even if it means making my own mistakes.

Sharlene: Even if it means letting you get hurt?

Josie: Yeah.

Sharlene: You are one of the most independent people I have ever known -- and considering how long Iíve been around, that says a lot. I know I seem overcautious sometimes, but I really don't mean to stifle you.

Josie: All I want is for you to respect me.

Sharlene: Oh, I do, honey, so very much.

Josie: Thanks for talking.

Sharlene: You can always come to me -- always.

Josie: Oh, I love you, mama.

Sharlene: And I love you so much.

Josie: I -- I got a bus to catch.

Sharlene: Ok. Have a good time.

Josie: All right. I'll see you later.

Sharlene: Ok.

Josie: Ok.

Kevin: Somehow, this isn't where I see you in a couple of years from now.

Matt: Hey, Kev, how you doing? What are you doing here?

Kevin: I was just developing some pictures for Mitch and he told me that you were here, so --

Matt: Oh. Great place, huh?

Kevin: Yeah. I just feel kind of funny, you know, hanging out with you here, you know.

Matt: Mac knows I'm here. It's all right.

Kevin: Well, I'm just not your mom's idea of a suitable friend for you.

Matt: What are you talking about?

Kevin: It's just a feeling I get, I don't know.

Matt: No, no, you're crazy.

Kevin: So did you -- did you have a good time at the movies last night?

Matt: Hey, show me a slasher and I'm in my prime. How about you?

Kevin: It was great. I had great time.

Matt: Yeah. So things going good with Josie?

Kevin: I don't think she likes me very much.

Matt: Yeah, she needs an attitude adjustment.

Kevin: She was staring at you half the time.

Matt: Oh, come on. She can't stand me.

Kevin: Right.

Matt: Look, Kevin, she's a flirt, I mean, that's all. I don't even like her.

Kevin: Matt, I have a real problem.

Matt: Oh, I know that. Ok. What's the problem?

Kevin: I really like her. And every time I even try to get close to her, she'll just back away from me.

Matt: Maybe she's shy.

Kevin: You just said she was a flirt.

Matt: A shy flirt.

Kevin: Matt, there's no such animal.

Matt: Look, if she's not interested, just let her go. I mean, don't waste your time with her. Find someone else.

Kevin: That's a great idea, Matt. It's just so easy, too, you know?

Matt: Yeah, really.

Kevin: So what about you and Tracy?

Matt: There is no me and Tracy. You know that. It's the three of us here.

Kevin: I know my sister loves me, Matt, but the past couple of times that the three of us have gone out, she gives me the distinct impression that Iím not wanted there, you know?

Matt: At the mill, she told me that she really liked me, you know?

Kevin: What did you say?

Matt: I said we're just friends like we've always been.

Kevin: I bet that went over real big.

Matt: We've always been friends. I don't know why all of a sudden she likes me more than that.

Kevin: It's your incredible charm, no doubt.

Matt: I don't want to hurt her.

Kevin: Well, then maybe you should talk to her again.

Matt: I don't know. It was pretty tough talking to her the first time. I don't know how I can do that again.

Kevin: Well, then Iíll talk to her.

Matt: No, no, no. I don't want you getting in the middle.

Kevin: You're probably right. So is there anybody that you are interested in or what?

Matt: Well, some interesting people on the party phone, but, you know, we don't know how we'll do in person.

Kevin: Still hung up on that Riviera, huh?

Matt: How do you know about that?

Kevin: Let's just say that subtlety was not one of your electives at school.

Matt: Kevin, she's all I think about.

Kevin: Sounds dangerous.

Matt: You know, I got to meet her. I'm going to go nuts.

Cass: Nelson. Are you all right?

Nelson: Hello. Didn't hear you come in.

Nicole: We heard a loud crash.

Nelson: Oh, that? Just me being clumsy. I think I've broken my Victoria.

Cass: Oh, that's a shame.

Nelson: Oh, it's my own fault. I was getting a little too energetic with the Charleston.

Cass: You were doing the Charleston alone?

Nelson: Why, yeah. Ain't nobody else here.

Cass: Are you sure you're not hurt?

Nelson: Only my pride. Now, can I help you with something? Are you interested in anything in particular?

Nicole: Maybe we should just go.

Cass: I need to talk to you about something.

Nelson: You ain't a bill collector, are you?

Cass: Don't you remember us?

Nelson: Why -- oh! Yeah, yeah, of course. You bought that brooch.

Cass: Yes, that's right.

Nelson: You'll have to excuse me. I'm blind as a bat without these. I guess that's how come you knew my name.

Cass: Yes, that's right, too.

Nicole: I don't think he's all there, if you know what I mean.

Cass: Shh! Well, now that we're all reacquainted here --

Nelson: Do you wish to return it?

Cass: No. I need to talk to you about something that's happened to me.

Nelson: Can you say it in front of the young lady?

Cass: It's nothing like that.

Nelson: Pity. Well, go ahead.

Cass: I've seen Nora.

Nelson: Nora?

Cass: Yes.

Nelson: That's not possible. Nora is dead.

Nicole: Well, that's what I told him, Nelson.

Cass: Well, it wasn't her, really. It was her ghost.

Nelson: There ain't no such thing, son.

Cass: I saw in the -- she was -- she was wearing the dress that she had on in the photograph, her wedding dress.

Nelson: Averill manor has a reputation for being a little creepy. Yeah, that's the word. It's natural that your imagination might run wild.

Cass: I'm telling you, I've seen her and she's spoken to me!

Nelson: You're wrong, do you hear? Nora is dead!

Cass: Nelson, I'm sorry. I don't mean to upset you.

Nelson: I'm sorry I raised my voice.

Nicole: No, it's ok. Cass didn't meant to terrorize you.

Cass: All I know is this has all been very real to me. I can't -- I can't explain what's been happening to me. It's been very real. And the more I look into it, the more it makes some kind of strange sense.

Nelson: I'm sorry, Mr. --

Cass: Winthrop.

Nelson: Winthrop. I can't believe that what you think you saw --

Cass: What I did see.

Nelson: I cannot believe that it was a ghost.

Cass: We went to see Sister Theresa.

Nelson: She don't speak.

Cass: No, she doesn't, but she wrote notes.

Nelson: She did?

Cass: Yes. And she said that Nora was murdered.

Nelson: That's a lie!

Cass: She was certain.

Nelson: Theresa's a cloistered nun. She ain't uttered a word in 60 years. She don't know what she's saying.

Cass: I believe her.

Nelson: I'm telling you that's just not true. Nora went to India.

Cass: I don't think she made it to India. I think Max murdered Nora.

Nelson: Leave it alone, Mr. Winthrop. Stop asking questions and leave it alone!

Sam: Mr. Marsten. How are you doing?

Drew: If you don't start calling me Drew, Iím going to take away all of that money I gave you, Mr. Fowler.

Sam: Uh, Drew. Please, call me Sam.

Drew: How you been, Sam?

Sam: A little busy. I'm still getting used to being a dad.

Drew: How nice for you.

Sam: Yeah, it's pretty incredible.

Drew: That's good. I suppose you're wondering why I wanted to get with you today.

Sam: Yeah, well, it's about work, right?

Drew: Whoa, whoa, whoa, don't be so anxious.

Sam: Well, I've been out of work since the accident. I'm looking forward to getting back into it.

Drew: Yeah, now that I can understand. Actually, what I had in mind for you is a new project.

Sam: Great. What is it?

Drew: Well, my offices aren't set up yet, so would you have a problem working out of your home?

Sam: No, no problem. It is a stimulating environment.

Drew: Good. Good. What I need is some logo designs.

Sam: Ok, what for?

Drew: It's for a new magazine my company's starting up.

Sam: Well, and can you tell me a little bit more about this magazine?

Drew: Well, actually, it's going to be show business-oriented -- you know, some interviews with some really big stars, maybe some human-interest stuff. I want this to be the hottest gossip mag in the country.

Sam: Really?

Drew: Well, actually, I do want it to have some class, have some glamour, some glitz. You know the type.

Sam: Oh, sure, yeah.

Drew: Good. What I need now is about 10 logo designs.

Sam: 10?

Drew: Too much?

Sam: No, that's no problem.

Drew: Good.

Sam: Ok, can you tell me what the name of the magazine's going to be?

Drew: "Starlightís."

Sam: Got it. So Iíll work on it this afternoon.

Drew: Good, Sam. You know, I'm expecting big things from you.

Sam: You will get big things from me.

Drew: You come highly recommended.

Sam: That's nice to know.

Drew: Well, shall we order?

Sam: Yeah. The meatloaf is top-flight.

Drew: I bet.

Julie Ann: Oh.

Amanda: Hi.

Julie Ann: Can I hold her?

Liz: No, come to me.

Julie Ann: Oh, come on.

[Alli cries]

Liz: Ooh. There she is.

Amanda: Julie Ann, you remember Josie, don't you?

Josie: Hi.

Julie Ann: Yeah. Hi. How are you?

Josie: How you doing?

Amanda: Oh, Aunt Liz, this is Josie Watts.

Liz: We've met.

Josie: How are you?

Kevin: Josie, hi.

Josie: Kevin. What are you doing here?

Kevin: I work here.

Josie: That's great.

Kevin: Yeah.

Mitch: So how's my favorite niece, huh?

Liz: Just fine.

Mitch: Hello. Hello. Where's Sam?

Amanda: Oh, he's at a business meeting with his new boss at Maryís place.

Mitch: All right, Iím going to go there for lunch. Maybe I'll see him.

Amanda: Oh, he'd like that. Oh, hi, Mom.

Rachel: There's my favorite granddaughter!

Amanda: You're going to have to take a number today.

Rachel: I can see that. Well, let's go show off.

[Alli cries]

Rachel: Oh, I know, I know. And then we'll go to lunch, ok?

Amanda: Ok. Would you mind waiting for a little while?

Josie: Take your time.

Amanda: Ok, great.

Rachel: Ok, we're going to go and see everybody.

Josie: Sorry.

Mitch: Oops, excuse me.

Josie: You don't have to stay with me if you don't want.

Kevin: No, it's ok. I'll wait with you.

Josie: Ok. It's a beautiful building.

Kevin: Yeah.

[Alli cries]

Rachel: Oh, she's a little hungry, but isn't she darling?

Mitch: It's ok.

Amanda: I was just telling Mitch, Mom, that Samís having lunch with his new boss.

Rachel: Oh, he must be excited.

Amanda: Yes. I was thinking of inviting his boss over for dinner on Friday.

Mitch: That's a good idea.

Amanda: I figure if we just move some of the baby stuff out, we might have time or we might have room for a buffet. What do you think?

Rachel: Well, that's a good idea, but Mac and I are going out to dinner. Why don't you come and use the house?

Amanda: Really?

Rachel: Sure.

Amanda: Oh, that'd be great!

Rachel: Good.

Mitch: I've got to go. I will see Sam at Maryís place, and I'll see you later.

Amanda: And make sure that he tells his boss about this.

Mitch: I'll do it.

Amanda and Rachel: Ok.

Kevin: Do you want to see the darkroom?

Josie: What?

Kevin: The darkroom. That's where I work.

Josie: Oh, oh. No, I'd better stay here and wait for Amanda to come back.

Kevin: Oh.

Liz: Kevin?

Kevin: Yeah?

Liz: Would you take this envelope down to the message center? It'd be a big help to me.

Kevin: Now?

Liz: Yes, now, thank you.

Kevin: Uh, see you later.

Josie: Bye.

Josie: Mrs. Matthews?

Liz: Yes?

Josie: Would it be all right if I use the phone? I have to call my mom.

Liz: Oh. Yeah, well, you can use my phone. I have to leave my desk for a few minutes.

Josie: Are you sure?

Liz: Yes. Now, when it rings, take the message, write the message down, and I'll answer it, all right?

Josie: Ok.

Liz: Mr. Cory isn't in at the moment.

Josie: Ok. Thanks.

Matt: Yeah, is Riviera there? She said she'd call in.

Man: Only one here is me, and no one wants to talk to me.

Matt: Who's that?

Man: Road warrior. Who else?

Josie: Captain Cool, are you on the line?

Matt: Hey, right on time.

Josie: Hi. I'm glad you're there.

Man: Why don't you two just call yourselves Romeo and Juliet and get it over with?

Josie: Well, I think it's a little early for that, don't you?

Matt: Don't you have something else to do, Road Warrior?

Man: Nope. I've grown fond of eavesdropping.

Josie: Well, I guess it's one of the hazards of these stupid things.

Matt: Look, when are we going to meet?

Josie: I don't know.

Matt: Look, I'm getting -- it's being a real pain, you know, telling you my secrets over the phone with half of Bay City listening.

Man: Don't mind me.

Matt: See?

Josie: Well, don't you think half the fun is not knowing who we are?

Matt: Yeah, it used to be, but it's losing its appeal real fast. I need to see you.

Josie: Me, too.

Matt: I mean, half the summer is over and we haven't even been in the same room with each other.

Josie: I just hope when we meet, you won't be disappointed.

Matt: No, no, I won't, I wonít.

Man: You two make me sick.

Matt: Would you shut up?

Man: I feel like Iím listening to some bad 1930s movie. It's pathetic.

Matt: Well, you could hang up and put us out of our misery, you know.

Man: It's people like you that convince me every day how incredibly stupid most of the population is!

Matt: Ooh, you're really getting on my nerves.

Josie: Ok, Captain Cool.

Man: Gee, thanks, hon.

Matt: Will you lay off?

Man: Don't worry; I've had enough of this for one day.

[Phone clicks]

Josie: Is he gone?

Matt: Yeah, I guess he is.

Josie: I think he has some serious problems.

Matt: Yeah, that's for sure.

Josie: Is anyone else on the line?

Matt: Riviera --

Josie: Yes? Oh!

Matt: I wanted to ask -- hey, what's wrong?

Josie: Nothing.

Kevin: You'd better not let Liz catch you on this phone.

Matt: Hey, hey, what's going on?

Josie: Nothing. I'll call you later.

Matt: Wait a minute. Wait --

Josie: Kevin, you scared me, and I asked Liz if I could use the phone.

Kevin: I was just kidding.

Josie: Aren't you supposed to be working?

Kevin: Yeah, but I just wanted to make sure that you were here.

Josie: Oh.

Liz: Kevin?

Kevin: Yeah?

Liz: Did you deliver that envelope for me?

Kevin: Yeah, I did.

Liz: Do you have my slides?

Kevin: They're still developing.

Liz: I've been waiting for an hour.

Kevin: All right. I'll be right back.

Liz: Thank you.

[Phone rings]

Liz: This has been going like this all day long. Did you take many messages?

Josie: No one called.

Liz: Really?

Josie: Yeah.

Liz: Mac Coryís office. There's no truth to that rumor, sir. No. I'm afraid that's all I can say. Goodbye. I'm not going to be able to deal with this by myself. We need help here.

Sam: Thanks, Charlie. Lunch was great.

Charlie: Your boss looks real bossy.

Sam: Yeah, well, actually, he's a nice guy, and he did like your meatloaf.

Charlie: Oh, good. Are you excited about this new job?

Sam: Are you kidding me? It couldn't have come at a better time, too. Do you know how expensive it is to bring up a kid these days? I tell you, it's good that things have been turning around for me and Amanda.

Charlie: Well, it's nice to be on top of the world.

Sam: Yeah, it's about time, too, thanks.

Charlie: Yeah.

Sam: Hey, Mitch.

Mitch: I missed him.

Sam: Well, how did you know?

Mitch: Well, I saw Amanda at "Brava."

Sam: Oh, so you're checking up on me, is that it?

Mitch: Yeah, of course. How's it going?

Sam: Great. He's got me working on some logo designs. I think this job is really going to work out for me.

Mitch: Sounds good. Have you eaten?

Sam: Yeah.

Mitch: You mind if I get something to eat?

Sam: No, go ahead. I'd like to hang out with you for a little while. I wish you could've met this guy. I do. Wish you'd been here earlier.

Mitch: So do you like him?

Sam: Yeah, I think he's nice. I think you'd like him.

Mitch: Well, I look forward to meeting him.

Cass: Why does this disturb you so much?

Nelson: Whatever happened happened 60 years ago! Don't get involved in things that ought to be laid to rest. Could be dangerous.

Cass: Why? Why after 60 years could this still be dangerous unless Max is alive and got away with murder?

Nelson: The past is the past. Don't ask questions.

Nicole: Oh, Cass, stop, he's getting too upset.

Woman: What is going on here?

Cass: I'm trying to get some answers from great-uncle, but he keeps talking in circles.

Woman: Who do you think you are?

Nelson: It's all right, dear. I'll be fine.

Woman: Why don't you go lie down for a while?

Nelson: Yeah, I'll do that.

Woman: If you don't mind my asking, why are you doing this? He is an old man. His heart is not strong.

Nicole: We're sorry. We shouldn't have come here.

Cass: Your great-uncle told us about a cloistered nun named Sister Theresa.

Woman: What are you trying to do?

Cass: I need his help! When I told Nelson that Theresa said the man who killed Nora was still alive, he got very upset.

Woman: You are so naive. A cloistered nun, Mr. Winthrop? Really.

Cass: I have to know what's going on here!

Woman: Think of what you are saying. A woman like Sister Theresa, who hasn't seen a man other than a priest in over half a century. As a matter of fact, knowing the order, the only man allowed near the place is Father Maximillian.

Nicole and Cass: Max.

Amanda: We shouldn't be too long.

Josie: Oh, that's ok. Why don't I take her to the park across the street, ok?

Rachel: I'm glad you got the job, Josie.

Josie: Thanks. I'll see y'all later.

Liz: Bye-bye. I hate to bother you, Rachel, but --

Rachel: What is it, Liz?

Liz: Well, there have been a lot of calls since that newspaper article.

Rachel: Well, we thought that that would happen. But do me a favor -- don't tell Mac unless he asks. What is it, darling?

Mac: I told you they wouldn't give up.

Rachel: Which "they" is it this time?

Mac: I got another call from the office by that man who calls himself the chief.

Matt: Who's that?

Mac: I don't know. I wish I did.

Amanda: You mean they're calling you directly now?

Mac: Yes.

Rachel: This is the person we were supposed to meet when we were in Europe. He never showed up.

Mac: Well, he will this time. When his secretary wanted to arrange a meeting, I told her I would decide when, where, and what was to be discussed this time.

Rachel: Good.

Mac: It's time we got some answers.

Amanda: Well, don't worry about it, dad. You're going to be fine.

Mac: Right, because this time, I'm calling the shots. I'm going to end this once and for all.

Sharlene: We're fine. I just wish I knew what you were doing. Why not? Is it business? Jason, Iíll tell you something, john is ready to wring your neck, and I don't blame him. The construction is going along fine, no thanks to you. What is the big secret? I hate when you act like this. I -- I'm not impressed, Jason. Ok. All right. Fine. Well, when are you coming home? Why can't you tell me? Oh, for -- I hate when you -- you're acting like a child. Well, it's true. Jason? Jason, don't you hang up that phone! Jason, don't hang up the -- that man is going to drive me crazy.

Nicole: Cass, she was really mad.

Cass: I don't care. Do you believe this? Father Max.

Nicole: Well, it could've been a coincidence.

Cass: Oh, come on, Nicole! A coincidence?

Nicole: A coincidence.

Cass: "A coincidence"?

Nicole: Yes, a coincidence.

Cass: "Yes, a coincidence." Come on! I'm calling the convent. I want to speak to this priest today.

Nicole: Well, shouldn't you ask if you can use the phone?

Cass: Shh. Shh. It's ringing. Yes, Reverend Mother? This is Cass Winthrop. Yes. Well, I'm glad you remember. Listen, Reverend Mother, I'm afraid I have another favor to ask of you. Nicole!
