Jamie: Is it time to get up already?

Lisa: Not for work.

Lisa: Hey, you, come back here.

Lisa: Jamie?

[Woman laughs]

Jamie: Not now.

Lisa: Jamie, it's not time for work yet. Come back to bed.

[Woman laughs]

Jamie: I have somewhere else to go right now.

[Woman laughs]

Lisa: Jamie?





[Laughing stops]

Lisa: Jamie. Ja-- Jamie. Oh, Jamie!

Jamie: What? What? Oh, it's ok. It's ok, Iím right here. You're just having a bad dream, hon. It's all right. It's ok, Iím right here. It's ok.


Sharlene: Drop and give me 20! Gotcha.

John: Funny lady.

Donna: Oh, boy!

Michael: Well, I don't know about this. I'm tired of being a pretzel.

Donna: You did look pretty funny. Here.

Michael: Thank you very much.

Donna: Well, what should we do now?

Michael: Ok, it's airplane time!

Donna: Airplane? No!

[Doorbell rings]

Donna: Oh, no, no. Oh, Michael, the doorbell. I'm going to get it.

Michael: It's -- no, no, you got to be airport Donna!

Donna: Airport Donna? No --

Michael: It's time to airport Donna!

Donna: Oh, no, no, no, no --

Michael: Bridget will get the door.

Donna: All right, all right. Have I got him? Have I got him?

Michael: Ok. Now here comes the fighter pilot ace!

[Michael imitates machine gun]

Donna: Mary!

Mary: Hi.

Michael: Oh --

Donna: Hi.

Mary: Is this how you guys get your exercise?

Michael: Yeah, well, look, you want to join in?

Mary: No, thank you, it's a little early for me.

Michael: Really?

Mary: But I do have to talk to you.

Donna: Oh. Well, all right.

Michael: Really? I have a -- a feeling that you want to talk to us about Mikey.

Michael: Well, actually, it was fun. We had a -- we had a good time.

Mary: Yeah?

Michael: Yeah.

Mary: Who was winning?

Michael: Who was winning? I think it was a draw.

Donna: You think so?

Michael: I think he let me win, I don't know.

Donna: Well, Mikey's up in the playroom with Bridget. I think they're going to try to rebuild that pillow fort we were making. You know, maybe we should play in there next time.

Mary: I didn't know you had a playroom.

Donna: Well, actually, it's a guest room that we made into one.

Mary: Aw.

Donna: Well, come on, every little boy needs his space -- you know, room to spread out.

Michael: Yes, it's kind of his own mini executive suite. And if we behave ourselves, he invites us in and we -- we play.

Donna: It's true.

Mary: The three of you seem like a real family.

Michael: Well, it's beginning to feel like that.

Donna: Well, I mean, isn't that what a foster family is all about? Trying to create a very warm environment, and -- besides, we have had a lot of fun having him around. Yeah.

Michael: So, what is it you wanted to talk about, Mary? Is there bad news about Mikey?

Mary: We -- we haven't had any luck at all finding anything that would lead us to his real family.

Donna: That's awful. But -- but you know he is fine here. I mean, you saw how marvelously he was adjusting to it.

Mary: Yes, yes, I did. But the child welfare authority has certain formulas --

Michael: Wait a minute. Wait, wait, wait. Yeah, ok, so -- I mean, has there been a report about us since he's been here that wasn't good?

Mary: No, no, they're absolutely delighted with both of you as temporary foster parents.

Donna: Well, then what is the problem? I mean, what are they saying?

Mary: That enough time has gone by -- um -- with no one coming forward that they have now issued a preliminary report, and long-term foster care can be considered.

Michael: We expected that.

Mary: Yes, I know we did. But they may also accept applications.

Donna: Applications for what? I thought we were Mikey's foster parents.

Mary: Applications for permanent adoption. There's a great big difference between temporary foster care and permanent custody. Anyway, I wanted you to be aware that you have some serious decisions to make regarding your commitment to this child.

Michael: Well, what's the -- what's the time frame here? I mean, how long do we have before we have to make a decision?

Mary: It's hard to say. It could be anytime in the next several weeks. But I don't think you need to rush. I think you have some time. We also could come up with something that would lead us to his real family. But I thought it was important that you understand what's going on because permanent custody wasn't the arrangement when he came here.

Donna: No. No, it wasnít. It is a lot to think about, Mary.

Mary: Yes, it is. Well, I have to go. But please call me if you want to know anything about the procedure.

Michael: Ok, Mary, we will. And thank you very, very much.

Mary: You're welcome.

Donna: Yes.

Mary: I'm going to let myself out.

Donna: Oh, thank you.

Michael: Lucky?

Donna: I don't know, Michael. I don't know.


Cheryl: Ok, here we go. I hope you enjoy your breakfast because this is the last breakfast I will be serving you, ever. The next time you see me, I will be sitting at a table over there talking about term papers.

Vince: Yo, yo -- campus cutie! Mm-hmm.

Cheryl: Sorry, pops. There you go.

Man: Thank you.

Cheryl: Enjoy it.

Woman: Thank you.

Cheryl: All righty.

Vince: I didn't realize you were so unhappy with your job here.

Cheryl: Pops, I --

Vince: No, I mean, if you'd rather talk about term papers and everything --

Cheryl: You know Iím just excited, pops. I mean, everything about Washington is new and it's like an adventure. Come on, can you blame me for looking forward to it?

Vince: Hmm.

Cheryl: Jake! Hi!

Jake: Hey, hey, hey.

Vince: How you doing, Jake?

Jake: Since when did we become kissing cousins?

Cheryl: You know, Jake, you can say whatever you want to me today because nothing will get to me. Nothing.

Jake: You're awfully perky, you little brat. Have anything to do with leaving for college?

Cheryl: You know about that? Oh, I wanted to surprise you, Jake. Who told you?

Jake: Well, Uncle Vince told me last night when I got in. Congratulations.

Cheryl: Thanks.

Jake: I just hope you have better luck when you leave Bay City than I did.

Cheryl: Come on, Jake. You did great for yourself out in California.

Jake: Yeah, I ruined my marriage.

Cheryl: You know what I'm talking about. I mean, with your career. Look, you got to come back to Bay City and be this big shot.

Jake: Big fish in a small pond. You're absolutely right. I am expecting great things from both of you.

Cheryl: Now, that's the spirit. When I come back at Thanksgiving, I want to see a tape of all your new videos, you got that? Is that a deal?

Jake: Deal.

Cheryl: Deal.

Jake: Thank you.

Cheryl: For what?

Jake: For being the one person that never makes big demands on me.

Cheryl: Oh, Jake, you know I make demands on you. I demand that you have as much faith in yourself as I have in you.

Jake: I'm going to miss you.

Cheryl: I'll miss you, too.

Jake: Oh, who are you kidding? You're going to have your long-haired lawyer friend to keep you company. How many coeds can say that?

Cheryl: Jake.

Jake: You don't think it's a strange coincidence that you're going to school practically next door to where Scottís going to be working?

Cheryl: Jake.

Jake: What? What?

Cheryl: I was planning on going back to college. You know that.

Jake: Yes, but it is an added incentive, though, isn't it?

Cheryl: Well --

[Cheryl and Jake laugh]


Jamie: Ok. You want to talk about it?

Lisa: No. You'll just say I'm being silly.

Jamie: No, I wonít.

Lisa: Mm-hmm. Yes, you will. You'll tell me that I'm being neurotic and insecure.

Jamie: Honey, I wouldn't have asked you to marry me if I believed those things. You had a nightmare, that's all. You don't have to tell me, but it -- it might make you feel better if you do.

Lisa: Ok. We were married, and we were in this bed.

Jamie: Doesn't sound like a nightmare to me.

Lisa: You left. You left me.

Jamie: For Vicky? Lisa?

Lisa: Hmm -- see, I told you you'd say I was being silly.

Jamie: I wouldn't blame you for your dreams. You can't control them. Honey, it's not all that difficult to understand the fears that cause them, given everything that's happened. But you have to believe that -- that Iím yours. For keeps.

Lisa: I know. I love you so much.

Jamie: I love you, too. You know, it might make you feel better if I moved back in here right away.

Lisa: Jamie.

Jamie: I mean, I'm here all the time anyway. I mean, isn't it better to -- to know that Iím right here when you wake up from your dreams?

Lisa: Well, of course it is.

Jamie: I still have the toothbrush you gave me. All I need to move back in --

Lisa: No, I want to save that.

Jamie: What's the matter, you getting scared?

Lisa: I just think that before we set up housekeeping once again, we should be husband and wife. It'll be special.

Jamie: Ok.

Lisa: Are you angry?

Jamie: How could I angry at someone I love so much?

Lisa: Hmm. Well, of course, you can come and spend the night anytime you want.

Jamie: Oh, gee, thanks. But I'll wait.

Lisa: Thank you.

Jamie: It'll be a good defense for a short engagement.

Lisa: Oh, Dr. Frame, you'll see our wedding will be here in no time.

Jamie: I hope so. You know, speaking of "no time," don't we have jobs to go to?

Lisa: Hmm -- uh-uh. Just five more minutes.

[Jamie laughs]


Sharlene: Well, john, you're dressed. I thought you'd be more comfortable in that towel, given the temperature.

John: Mm-hmm. Here, I'll get this for you.

Sharlene: Ok.

John: Why don't you get us a cup of coffee, all right?

Sharlene: Coffee's on.

John: You know, Sharlene, instead of breaking your back working out here on the farm, you ought to get Jason to hire a couple of farm hands. That way you can get out and get on your own.

Sharlene: Come on, John, I could never do that. Jason's letting us stay for free. I'm paying my debts one way or another.

John: I know he's your brother, Sharlene. But I don't think that he considers it a debt.

Sharlene: Even so, Iím going to work my tail off. Josie and I are real grateful.

John: Well, you are, anyway.

Sharlene: I shouldn't complain. I like farm work.

John: Well, there's nothing wrong with wanting to make a little money on your own.

Sharlene: Yeah. I've been circling some of the want ads.

John: Let's see.

Sharlene: Just nothing really seems quite right.

John: You know, if you're serious about this, I've got a suggestion for you.

Sharlene: What?

John: Call Felicia Gallant over at Tops. I used to bartend for her. She's great to work for.

Sharlene: Oh, I don't think Iíd fit in there.

John: Yeah, you would.

Sharlene: Really?

John: Of course, the flannel shirt would have to go.

Sharlene: What, a flannel evening gown would be more appropriate?

[John laughs]

Sharlene: Hey.


Michael: Donna, what's the matter?

Donna: Uh -- Victoria. I haven't been able to talk with her for the last couple of days.

Michael: There's nothing to worry about. Victoria's just being Victoria. You know how she is.

Donna: I know, I know. I'm sure you're right. I just wish she'd call me.

Michael: Come on, you want to tell me what the matter is?

Donna: There's nothing wrong. You know, I was thinking that Bridget should fix us something to eat because --

Michael: Donna, I don't want to talk about food right now.

Donna: Michael, please --

Michael: No, look, something has been eating at you for the last little while, and I know it's about the possibility of adopting Mikey because you clammed up the minute Mary left here.

Donna: I just need to get everything sorted out in my own head about this, ok?

Michael: Ah-ah-ah -- wait a minute. This is something that we should sort out together.

[Phone rings]

Donna: Michael, that's your -- that's your private line.

Michael: I know. Ok, don't go away, all right?

Donna: I wonít.

Michael: Thanks.


Michael: Hello, Michael Hudson here. Yeah, Jensen. What? No. No, I talked to the foreign office last night. Everything was fine. Oh. Did you talk to the ambassador about this? No. No, no, you were right. You were right. This is something I should take care of myself, definitely. Right. Ok, tell you what -- why don't you make the travel arrangements for me and call me back later on this evening, all right? Let me know how everything goes. Ok. Bye.

Donna: What is it? What's wrong?

Michael: Uh -- just a minor crisis.

Donna: No. No, I know that Jensen handles those. He wouldn't have called you unless this was big, Michael. What is it?

Michael: Donna, it's just a little emergency business meeting, that's all. It's nothing I can't handle very easily.

Donna: Stop avoiding me. Would you tell me?

Michael: Well, it's some investments. It's my oil fields. The ones in the Middle East.

Donna: You're talking about the Persian Gulf, aren't you? Michael, that's so dangerous over there. I don't want you going over there.

Michael: No, no, no -- look, it's going to be fine. It's easy. It's a one, two, three, in and out.

Donna: No, I -- I mean, all you have to do is pick up the newspaper. They're in a war over there. You know, I would rather have you go wrestle alligators or something.

Michael: Really? Well, I don't think they have alligators in the Persian Gulf.

Donna: Stop.

Michael: Ok, look, there's nothing to worry about. I'm going to go -- Iím not going to leave till Thursday. I'll go for a couple of days, three at the very most.

Donna: Michael, please --

Michael: Donna, Donna, let's -- let's not talk about this. The trip is a piece of cake. Let's talk about what's really going on here, all right? What are we going to do about Mikey?


Ronnie: Oh, no.

Jake: Just the lady I came to see.

Ronnie: Mr. McKinnon, if you want to visit, we have some patients here who could use cheering up, but Iím busy.

Jake: Give me a break, Veronica Lawrence. Or do you want to officially go by Tiffany Simone?

Ronnie: I want you to go out of here.

Jake: Honey, Iím your ticket from behind that nurse's station.

Ronnie: Did it ever occur to you that I'm exactly where I want to be?

Jake: I don't buy that. Somehow, you don't have the same passion in the starched whites as you do when you have a microphone in your hand.

Ronnie: Well, look what's in my hand now.

Jake: I like that. We can do a video with that -- Jekyll-and-Hyde kind of thing. You started out as a nurse --

Ronnie: No, no, no, we are not doing any video. Now, you have to knock off this harassment or I'm going to call security. This is my workplace, and you are interfering with my job.

Jake: You can take a second to talk about your future. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. People with your talent would die -- die to be given this chance.

Jamie: Excuse me, Jake. Why don't you leave Ronnie alone and go play Hollywood somewhere else.

Ronnie: Excuse me.

Jake: You must really love rescuing damsels in distress. I think that's funny, especially since you've caused so much distress around here.

Jamie: Distress? I assume you mean Vicky. It's a closed subject, Jake.

Jake: Well, then let's open it. You took advantage of her, Jamie. You had a good time at her expense.

Jamie: That's not true.

Jake: No? Hmm? Bet you had this whole engagement to Lisa Grady worked out in your head months ago, and you just thought you'd have a little fling with Vicky before you walked down the aisle. Shows me what you think of her. Of all women, I guess.

Jamie: You're underestimating Vicky. Give her some credit.

Jake: I'm the only one who ever did give her credit. I'm the only one who ever supported her.

Jamie: She knew exactly what she was doing every step of the way.

Jake: And she fell in love with you. How can you hate her for that?

Jamie: I don't hate her. But I sure don't respect her tactics.

Jake: The impeccable James Frame never soiled his white coat -- I don't think so. You know what the sickest part of this whole thing is? I don't even think you're aware you hurt her.

Jamie: I was a good friend of Vicky. I was her doctor.

Jake: Tell me something -- is that how you won all your wives? With your bedside manner?

Jamie: That's enough, Jake.

Jake: What did you want from Vicky when you slept with her? To be close friends? A good physician? Or did you just want to have a good time in the sack, Jamie?

Jamie: Things got a little out of hand, and Iím sorry about what happened. Vicky knows that.

Jake: A lot of good that does her now, huh?

Jake: Excuse me, do you know where Ronnie is?

Nurse: Oh, she's on her break.

Jake: Do you know where I can find her?

Nurse: Uh -- I don't know.

Jake: Oh, come on, Iíll bet you do.

Nurse: No. I wish I did.

Jake: Well, you have all the schedules right there. Do you think you could tell me when she's going to come back on?

Nurse: Well, yeah, I could do that.

Jake: You're such a doll.


Sharlene: John is making fun of my outfit.

Chris: Well, that's the same as my outfit almost. You getting to be a wise guy again?

Sharlene: No, he's just trying to convince me to work at a snazzy restaurant.

Chris: Well, that is definitely not the attire for that.

John: Well, enough of the fashion debate. These done?

Chris: Yes, sir.

John: Then Iíll take them outside and peruse them.

Chris: Oh, well, everything checks out.

John: Mm-hmm.

Chris: Uh-huh. Listen, I'm going to start wearing dresses to work.

John: Might help.

Chris: Maybe you can convince him to let me work on the crew.

Sharlene: Oh, he's just trying to be all business. It's a big operation to run without Jason around.

Chris: Yeah.

Sharlene: Sit down. Cool off a minute. Two more lemons, and Iíll have us some lemonade.

Chris: Oh, thanks. Ah, lemonade would be great. Oh, I can taste it already. Ooh, Sharlene, you do that with such vehemence.

Sharlene: Yeah, well, men get their aggressions out on punching bags. I get mine out on lemons.

Chris: Well, I ought to try it sometime. It'd be a damn sight less fattening than my emotional outlet.

Sharlene: Which is?

Chris: Chocolate.

Sharlene: Oh, oh, that's a good one, too.

Chris: Yeah.

Sharlene: That's great.

Chris: I don't know -- eating chocolate kind of stuffs the emotions, so I think it's better to get them out in the open. Maybe men have the right idea with punching bag. What do you think?

Sharlene: Well, sometimes I wonder if men have the right idea about anything.

Chris: Uh-oh. Sounds like you and your man aren't seeing eye to eye.

Sharlene: I'm not involved with any man.

Chris: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to pry.

Sharlene: And I don't plan to be.

Mary: Hello. Ah! What are you doing here? I would have figured you to be home packing.

Cheryl: Oh, I'm all packed. I even picked up my airline tickets already.

Mary: Aren't you the organized one. You didn't have to come in to work. I'm Charlie or Tracy could've worked --

Cheryl: I -- I wanted to, just one last time.

Vince: So that she can tell her new friends in the new city what a backwater Bay City is, hmm?

[Cheryl sighs]

Cheryl: He's been like that all day.

Mary: He's hurting, honey.

Cheryl: I just don't understand that, Mom. I -- Iíve done nothing, nothing to hurt him.

Mary: I know that and you know that, but he -- well, actually, he knows that, too. It's just that you're his baby and he needs time to get used to the idea.

Cheryl: I just -- I wish he'd see it the way I do. I'm so excited about it. I'm really looking forward to it.

Mary: Really? That excited about going back to school?

Cheryl: Ok, ok, ok -- I'm looking forward to seeing Scott. I can't believe it's only been a week.

Mary: Yeah, well, I figured it was something like that. You have been so busy running around getting everything done, that I haven't had a chance to tell you how really proud I am of you for making this decision.

Cheryl: Well, at least you are.

Mary: That you want to move out on your own, that you are handling everything by yourself. That you're so excited about going back to school. It all means that you're leaving your childhood behind you. You understand what I'm saying?

Cheryl: Yes, Mother. I'm a woman now.

Mary: Well, you're getting there. And you're going to be a terrific woman. Just don't forget that there are certain responsibilities that go along with that.

Cheryl: Yes, and Iím looking forward to all of them. And you know that I can handle it, don't you?

Mary: Yes, I do. Even if I'm not there to protect you.

Cheryl: Thanks to you and pops and the rest of the family, Iíve learned how to take care of myself. So stop worrying, ok? Then maybe we can all just be more like friends.

Mary: No matter how grown up you ever get to be, don't ever forget that you are still my child.

Cheryl: Come here.

Lisa: Cheryl --

Cheryl: Hi, Lisa.

Lisa: I just heard you're leaving.

Cheryl: Yes.

Lisa: You are going to love Washington.

Cheryl: Well, I'm expecting to. Look, thanks. Thanks for being such a good friend.

Lisa: Hey, I want a long letter with all the details as soon as you settle in.

Cheryl: You got it. And maybe you and Jamie can come out and visit.

Lisa: Well, I better see you at my wedding.

Cheryl: Well, as soon as you set a date, Iíll clear my calendar.

Lisa: Ok.

Cheryl: All right.

Mary: Hi, Lisa.

Lisa: Hi, Mary. Do you have a second?

Mary: Sure.

Cheryl: I'll see you later, ok?

Lisa: Good luck.

Cheryl: All right.

Mary: What's up?

Lisa: I'd like to tell you about something and see what you make of it.

Mary: Ok.

Lisa: I had this nightmare last night about Jamie.

Mary: Was it a premonition?

Lisa: No, no. I'm sure it was just a dream. And it was very vivid. Jamie left me for another woman.

Mary: Oh, Lisa, honey. Now, you've got to put this to rest.

Lisa: No, no, see, he -- he disappeared from our bed, and there was this woman.

Mary: Was it Vicky?

Lisa: I didn't see her, but Jamie went to her and she was laughing.

Mary: I don't think you need to worry about Vicky because Vicky is a very emotionally dependent person. She's going to have to move on to someone else out of necessity because Jamie is a lost hope for her.

Lisa: I've accepted that, but this dream --

Mary: Ok, the dream could be a way of coping, and you've dealt beautifully with all this so far consciously. Maybe your subconscious just needs a chance to catch up and then the dreams will stop.

Lisa: Ok, right. I -- I mustn't let the fear get in the way of me and Jamie.

Mary: You can do it. You're very strong.

Lisa: Guess I just needed to hear that from a professional.

Mary: You and Jamie have been working toward this for months now. I think you're absolutely ready for the next step.

Lisa: It's a big step, but I feel great. Jamie and Lisa Frame are going to make it.


Chris: So you've sworn off men for a while, eh? Sounds like you mean it.

Sharlene: You bet I do. My life is complicated enough. Last thing I need is a man being there like salt in a wound.

Chris: Ooh. You know, I don't refer to my love life in terms of wounds and salt.

Sharlene: Well, maybe you haven't been around as much as I have.

Chris: Sharlene, you're not painting a very pretty picture here.

Sharlene: I had it harder than most. Look, I don't mean to make excuses, but Iím just -- Iím sure that relationships are easier for other women.

Chris: It hasn't been easy for me. I'm just getting to the point again where I'm ready to have a relationship with a guy and I realize it's almost impossible to find one to suit my needs.

Sharlene: Ooh, I admire you. You're thinking about your needs. You're not putting his first.

Chris: Yeah, I'm trying. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnít.

Sharlene: You know, when it comes to my daughter, I have very particular qualifications. But as for me --

Chris: Ah! Have faith, Sharlene. Now, listen, the way I see it, you got to visualize what you want, really see it, and then know you can create it in your life. Now, I do this all the time, usually in regard to jobs. But it'll work in any category.

Sharlene: So maybe that attitude comes from your upbringing.

Chris: Hmm. Well, there was always a lot of pressure to overachieve. I learned at an early age if you can see a thing, you can make it happen.

Sharlene: Josie's like that.

Chris: Yeah?

Sharlene: Determined.

Chris: Sounds like that's your nice way of saying willful.

Sharlene: Mm-hmm.

Chris: However, I think willful's a pretty good way to be.

Sharlene: Then I am sure you'll get that man. Who knows, he could be right outside that door.


Donna: And here we go -- service for two.

Michael: You don't quit, do you?

Donna: No, I certainly donít.

Michael: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Let's talk here.

Donna: What?

Michael: Let's -- let's talk about Mikey.

Donna: You don't give up, either, do you? All right. You know that I would be lying to you if I said I was not anxious about the thought of adopting him.

Michael: Well, Donna Love Hudson, finally. Look, you got to admit, right now it's only a possibility.

Donna: Michael, we stood in this room and I made you promise me that you would not let that little boy become a replacement for our son.

Michael: He's not a replacement. Donna, we've developed a relationship with him independently. We like Mikey for who he is.

Donna: And I promised myself that I -- I wouldn't get attached to him.

Michael: Hey, you're a normal, caring, loving person. And to develop a healthy attachment to someone -- that's not a problem. It's wonderful.

Donna: Well, you know, maybe that's easy for you to say because you like everybody and everybody likes you. I -- I am not like that.

Michael: Wait a minute; we're not talking about everybody here. We're talking about you and Mikey, and you two have developed some very real feelings for each other.

Donna: I know, but -- but, Michael, to make him a part of our family, I -- I just don't know. I mean, look, I -- I am not very proud of myself the way I -- I handled Victoria and Marley. I mean, if they hadn't been as strong as they were and then if it hadn't been for you or for Bridget --

Michael: Donna, I am not going to sit here and listen to you put yourself down. In your advanced years, the one thing that you have become, my dear, is a wonderful mother.

Donna: No, I don't know that, Michael. I mean, maybe I don't -- I don't deserve it. I mean, I lost our son. Maybe I don't deserve another chance --

Michael: Donna, wait a minute. You're not making any sense here at all. You know what gives you the right to be a mother anytime you want? This wonderful heart you have gives you the right to be a mother again.

Donna: Oh, Michael. Well, there are other things to think about. I mean, what if his parents did come back someday or what if he becomes 8, 9, 10 years old and he decides that he doesn't want to live with us anymore? You know, I don't think I could handle that.

Michael: You know something, Donna? There's a good chance that might happen. He just might do that. Kids do that all the time. They grow up. And what if his parents do come back? I don't know, at least we can comfort ourselves in knowing that we gave him our best. We gave him all of our love and all of our strength.

Donna: Please, I don't want to talk about this anymore, you know?

Michael: Ok, ok, ok, we don't have to talk about it right now. All I want you to do is think about it while Iím away, ok?

Donna: Michael Hudson, I am not going to be able to think about that. You are going to be in an area where there's war!

Michael: Donna, come on, it's not a war. And besides, I will be protected.

Donna: Oh. Oh, right -- by Jensen? Well, all right, maybe, but then who's going to protect me?

Michael: You see this ring right here? You see this ring right here? That, my dear, is our protection.


Mary: Ok, goodbye. See you later.

Vince: Yeah.

Mary: I'll see you at home, sweetheart.

Cheryl: Ok, Mom. See you later.

Cheryl: Pops?

Vince: Hmm?

Cheryl: Do you think it would be ok if we sat down maybe and talked a little bit?

Vince: Well, I got to clean these plates up now. I guess I got time for that later, I don't know.

Cheryl: Thanks.

Vince: So, how was -- how was your last day?

Cheryl: Fine, fine. Pops, I don't want you to be mad at me.

Vince: Oh, I'm not mad at you.

Cheryl: I don't want you to be hurt, either, you know? I'd just really hate to think of going away knowing that I made you unhappy.

Vince: Then don't go away. Hey, hey --

Cheryl: Pops.

Vince: I try -- I mean, you know -- since the day you came into this world, you have given me nothing but joy -- well, maybe a headache or two, but, you know -- you have been my precious, precious angel.

Cheryl: You're my pops.

Vince: Hey, Iím sorry if I've been acting like a -- you know, a jerk. It's just that I know I'm going to miss you.

Cheryl: I'm going to miss you, too, pops.

Vince: Oh, it's different with dads, you know? I had to let go of Ben, Kathleen, M.J. Letting go of you is going to be the end of it.

Cheryl: Yeah, but, pops, you'll have mom. I mean, you finally got her back. You can go out and really live and enjoy your life.

Vince: Oh, is this the old "let him down easy" routine?

Cheryl: And you know if all else fails, you have Jake. Jake can liven things up.

Vince: Cheryl, you and I have had something special between us. I don't know, maybe -- maybe it comes from your mom leaving when you were such a little baby. I held on to you for dear life, more so than any of the others. You were my fragile, fragile baby.

Cheryl: I -- I just can't be your baby, pops. I -- I hope that you love whatever I am now.

Vince: What you are is a smart, beautiful woman. And I couldn't love you more if I tried, I tell you.

Cheryl: I love you, too, pops. Give me a hug.

Vince: All right, all right! You're a smart woman, beautiful woman, but enough of this mush. Now, listen, we'll have a -- we'll have a going-away sendoff with the family tomorrow night before you leave.

Cheryl: Ok.

Vince: And I'll see you again when you come back after your break, or maybe a little sooner if I can't stand it, you know? This place is going to go to the dogs when you're not here.

Cheryl: Come here.


Ronnie: Thanks, Ann. Thank you.

Ronnie: You don't know when to stop, do you?

Jake: You must be the only woman alive who doesn't respond well to flowers.

Ronnie: I bet I'm not the woman alive who doesn't respond to you.

Jake: Now, be nice, Ronnie. The flowers were expensive. Besides, I just came back to apologize.

Ronnie: Why don't I believe you?

Jake: Can I help it if I get overexcited by dynamite talent?

Ronnie: Look, your flattery will get you nowhere, but I do appreciate the compliment and the flowers. Thank you.

Jake: You're welcome. Do me a favor -- don't rule out the possibility of doing a video for me. You can always change your mind.

Ronnie: Mr. McKinnon, once and for all, my career is in health care, not in show business. Excuse me.


John: Yeah, this one checks out. And this one.

Chris: They all check out. Don't you trust me by now?

John: I trust you with a lot of things, Macaleer. This has to do with money.

Chris: Oh, yeah. You don't think I know my numbers, huh?

John: Well --

Chris: Don't you dare say anything chauvinistic, buster!

John: Listen, I wouldn't be much of a boss if I didn't check my accounts regularly, now, would I?

Chris: Oh, yeah? Well, what kind of boss --

Chris and John: Oh.

Chris: Gotcha. I can't believe you fell for that.

John: I can't, either.

[Phone rings]

Chris: I suppose now you're upset with me, huh? I'm not supposed to kiss my boss.

John: Who says so?

[Bench squeaks]

Chris: You squeak.

John: What do you mean, I squeak?

Chris: Been that long?

John: Maybe I need a little practice.

Sharlene: Excuse me -- Jasonís on the phone.

John: It's about time he called.

Sharlene: No, he was calling for Chris.

Chris: Oh.


Jamie: It looks like I'm going to get out of here at a decent hour for once, Ronnie. I'll see you later.

Ronnie: No, no, no. One second, Dr. Frame. You still have one patient to see.

Jamie: Ronnie, I finished my office hours this afternoon. Who is it?

Ronnie: I don't know. She just came in, said she's a regular patient of yours.

Jamie: Did she have an appointment?

Ronnie: Uh-uh, but she is very insistent.

Jamie: Well, where is she?

Ronnie: I asked her to wait in the examining room.

Jamie: You know, I knew this was too good to be true.

Ronnie: I know.

Jamie: Great. Well, well, well.

Lisa: Dr. Frame, I know you're a busy man, but I thought maybe you could squeeze me into your schedule.

Jamie: Oh, well, I have a few minutes, yes. Are you sure you can afford my fees, ma'am?

Lisa: Oh, I have insurance.

Jamie: Some lucky fellow, I see. What seems to be the problem, though? You look quite healthy.

Lisa: Well, I thought before I went and applied for my marriage license, I should have a thorough examination.

Jamie: Oh, yeah, well, I'm your man.

Lisa: Yes, you certainly are.


John: Hey, how's Jason?

Donna: Mmm. Well -- ooh.

Michael: That was delicious.

Donna: Oh, well, thank you. But actually, I can't take all the credit. I mean, Bridget did do most of this.

Michael: I wasn't talking about the meal, you turkey!

Donna: You weren't?

Michael: I was talking about you.

Donna: Oh.

Michael: When are you going to learn, I got a one-track mind, huh?

Donna: Oh, well, I do know that you're an entrepreneur, but I guess you still have a stable boy's heart.

Michael: And lucky, lucky me, you like stable boys!

Donna: Ha!

Michael: All right, you. Look, I want you to take as much time as you want to think about Mikey, all right? Because I don't want you doing anything, not anything that you're not completely comfortable doing, ok?

Donna: Who is that?

Michael: Hey! Oh, hi, buddy!

Donna: What are you doing? Hi!

Michael: Oh, what a guy.

Mikey: Yeah.

Michael: Yeah, well, I guess you know where I stand on the issue, huh?

Donna: Yeah.

Mikey: Yeah.

Michael: Did you have a good time out there?

Donna: Hey, give me a hug!

Mikey: Yeah!

Donna: Will you do that?

Michael: Yeah?

Mikey: Yeah.

Donna: Yeah? Give me a hug.
