Vince: How much stuff you putting in that?

Mary: Just essentials.

Vince: Uh-huh. Let me see essentials. Ah! Well, you got your fresh-baked essential chocolate-chip cookies. Uh-huh. You got your essential -- stationery?

Mary: So she doesn't have to call us all the time. She can write home.

Vince: Essential phone calling card?

Mary: Except for those emergencies when she really should call.

Vince: Well -- iron-on name tags? Mary! Mary, Cheryl is going away to Washington to check out colleges, not to some sleep-away camp.

Mary: She's going probably to wind up in Georgetown. That's a big school in a big town.

Vince: She'll be fine, she'll be fine. If anybody can keep Cheryl in line, it's those Jesuits, you know -- a no-nonsense bunch of people who I've never seen the likes of them.

Mary: I don't think it's quite as strict as that anymore.

Vince: You know, I'll bet she gets accepted there.

Mary: I'll bet she does.

Cheryl: Ok, guys, I think this is the last of it. I'm all set to go.

[Music plays]

Matt: Yeah, party phone. Is Riviera there?

Man: There's no one on the line but me.

Matt: Road warrior?

Man: You got it.

Matt: Hey, roadie, it's Captain Cool.

Road warrior: How you doing?

Matt: Good. Sounds like you could be doing better, though.

Road warrior: It's been one bad day.

Matt: Yeah? What's going on?

Road warrior: Like you really care, right? This phone thing's a drag, you know? I got better things to do.

Matt: Yeah, like what?

Road warrior: I'm going to drive over to the old mill. I like it there. If you have to be alone, you should do it someday. You'll like it.

Matt: Wait, wait, you sure you don't want to talk first?

Road warrior: No. Just have fun with your friend Riviera.

Matt: Yeah, I will, if I can get a hold of her.

Josie: Hi, party phone? Is Captain Cool there?

Road warrior: You just missed him.

Josie: Oh, the baby was crying and I couldn't get to the phone on time.

Road warrior: What?

Josie: Nothing. Who's this?

Road warrior: Road warrior.

Josie: Hi. It's Riviera. Thanks for letting me know about Captain Cool. I'll talk to you later.

Road warrior: Sure.

Josie: Hey, are you all right?

Road warrior: Man, I wish everyone would just get off my case.

Josie: Sorry.

Road warrior: Yeah, right.

Josie: I am, I'm sorry.

Road warrior: Well, don't worry about me. In a little while, Iíll be feeling fine.

Josie: What's that supposed to mean?

Road warrior: I have some pills, see. And believe me; they can get me through a day like this.

Josie: There are better ways to get through a bad day.

Road warrior: Maybe your code name should be Snow White.

Josie: I mean it, drugs are stupid. Whatever your problems are, pills are not going to solve them.

Road warrior: Maybe not.

Josie: If you want to talk --

Road warrior: Everybody on this line always wants to talk.

Josie: Well, why not? It is the party phone.

Road warrior: Right. Actually, I'm going to go for a drive.

Josie: And the pills?

Road warrior: Relax. No, I'm not that stupid. I'll stay clean for tonight.

Josie: Good. Listen, I got to go. Are you sure you're all right?

Road warrior: Sure.

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

Amanda: Hi, Josie.

Josie: Hi.

Amanda: Oh, she's quiet.

Josie: Yeah. She's so sweet. You're back early.

Amanda: Hi!

[Alli vocalizes]

Amanda: What?

Josie: Saying hi to mommy.

Amanda: Yeah, I'm planning a party tonight, so I kind of cut my errands a little short.

Josie: Sounds great. I guess I can go, then?

Amanda: You know, my mom said you can use the pool if you want.

Josie: Really?

Amanda: Yeah.

Josie: I don't have a suit.

Amanda: I'm sure I have some old suits left up in my room. Why don't you go take a look? You can use one of those.

Josie: Thanks, I will.

Amanda: Ok. See you later. Oh, wait -- just to let you know, my brother's going to be at the pool, too.

Josie: Oh, ok. Thanks. Matthew Cory, this is your lucky day.

Officer: "And Iíve become the best short-order cook they've got. Take care, Adam."

Lisa: Oh, he sounds happy with M.J.

Officer: I don't think he's coming back.

Lisa: No. I think it's for the best. Going to miss him, though.

Officer: This whole place is going to miss him.

Lisa: Mitch, hi.

Mitch: Hi.

Lisa: What a surprise.

Mitch: Yeah, well, it is a surprise. I just came by to congratulate you.

Lisa: Congratulate me?

Mitch: On your engagement.

Lisa: Well, Mitch, you were at the party the other night.

Mitch: Well, yeah, but, you know, we just really didn't get a chance to talk.

Lisa: No, I guess not.

Mitch: So are you excited?

Lisa: Mitch, does this have anything to do with Felicia? I mean, you having problems with her?

Mitch: What sort of problems?

Lisa: You tell me. I've been very confused about the way you've been acting, the two of you. I mean, you were very happy at the party the other night, but I know you've been fighting a lot ever since the benefit.

Mitch: Now, how do you know that?

Lisa: Mitch, everybody knows. I don't know if you realize it or not, but your fights have been very public.

Mitch: Well, have you talked to her about this?

Lisa: I tried, but she just clammed up, and that is not like Felicia, so I want to know what's happening.

Mitch: Well, I'm sorry that she clammed up, but maybe the two of you should discuss it.

Lisa: I intend to.

Mitch: Can you -- can you check on criminal records anywhere in the country on that computer?

Lisa: State, federal, international. Why?

Mitch: Nothing. I just thought that maybe I could punch up my record for old time's sake, you know?

Lisa: Very funny, Mitch. What is going on?

Mitch: Nothing's going on.

Lisa: I'm not stupid. You come in here to congratulate me on my engagement and you already did that, and then you're evasive about Felicia, and now you're interested in my computer. What is it?

Mitch: Ok. I need to get into the computer to check on someone's criminal record.

Lisa: Mitch, I can't do that. That's confidential and I could lose my job.

Mitch: I understand that, I understand that, and I don't want you to lose your job, but I need to check on a record. It's very important.

Lisa: Mitch --

Mitch: It's essential that I check on some records. I need it as a favor. Felicia needs it.

Lisa: Why Felicia?

Mitch: Look, I can't get into that right now. I just -- I need your help. Can you help me?

Lisa: I'm going to take a break. I'll be back in five minutes. Five minutes.

Mitch: The access codes?

Lisa: If you'd like some gum, it's in the top left-hand drawer. Have fun.

Mitch: Waiting for Ms. Grady.

Amanda: A word for northeastern Spain. Oh. Northeastern Spain.

Sam: Oh, Amanda, you're working.

Amanda: Yeah, well, Alliís been sleeping ever since I picked her up, so I thought Iíd try to get another paragraph done on my travel article.

Sam: Yeah? How goes it?

Amanda: I'm rusty, but it's coming.

Sam: Yeah. So, you going to get ready for the party?

Amanda: I am ready.

Sam: Oh.

Amanda: Is this better?

Sam: Mm-hmm. Much better. Come here.

Amanda: Hmm.

Sam: Hmm.

Amanda: What'd you get?

Sam: Stuff.

Amanda: Sam.

Sam: Hmm?

Amanda: This wine is expensive. And you bought cheese. I thought you were just going to go get beer and pretzels.

Sam: Amanda, Amanda, how often do we get a chance to celebrate your brother's engagement.

Amanda: At these prices, I hope only once. You bought Alli an outfit, too?

Sam: Yeah, I saw it in the window. I couldn't resist.

Amanda: Sam -- it's really cute, but how can we afford this?

Sam: Amanda, chill. Listen to me for a second, ok? Look, with my new job, ok, my painting and your freelance work for "Brava," I think we deserve a good time tonight. Amanda?

Amanda: Hmm?

Sam: Yeah?

Amanda: When you're right, you're right.

Sam: Yeah, you know it.

[Knock on door]

Amanda: Hmm, Iíll get that.

Sam: Get that, get that, quick.

Jamie: Hi.

Amanda: Jamie!

Sam: Hey, Jamie!

Jamie: Hello, Sam.

Sam: How you doing?

Jamie: Listen, I got off early and I thought I'd drop by and see my niece.

Sam: Shh.

Amanda: Well, your niece is sleeping right now, but you can talk to the two of us if we'll do.

Jamie: Well, I guess you'll have to. How you doing, Sam?

Sam: Not too bad. So have you and Lisa set a date yet?

Jamie: Oh, no, no, no, we have to first get through the engagement party.

Amanda: Let me guess -- mom's idea?

Jamie: Right, right.

Amanda: This is going to be huge.

Jamie: And long.

Amanda and Jamie: And boring.

Sam: Guys, come on, give Rachel a break.

Amanda: Sam, you don't understand. I think mom's still upset that she didn't get to give me one of these things. This is going to be a spectacle about the size of "gone with the wind."

Jamie: Or "the Poseidon adventure." If I can survive that party, then I should be ready to handle almost anything married life throws at me.

Sam: Yeah, well, speaking of married life, I'd like to propose a toast -- to Jamie and Lisa, may they be very, very happy.

Jamie: Thank you. Can I see my niece?

Sam: Over this way. Come on.

[Music plays]

Matt: Whoo!

Josie: Matthew! I didn't know anybody was out here.

Matt: Well, then we're even. I didn't know you were coming out.

Josie: Well, your sister came and got Alli, and your mom said I could use the pool.

Matt: Hmm.

Josie: You know, it was a nice surprise.

Matt: Where'd you get the suit?

Josie: Oh, this? It's your sister's. Don't you recognize it?

Matt: I don't know, it never looked that way on Amanda. Well, come in, come on in.

Josie: No, I'm scared.

Matt: Of what? What's the matter, you can't swim?

Josie: Well, sure I can, but the suit's a little loose.

Matt: Doesn't look that way to me.

Josie: Well, it is, and it might just come right off if I dive in.

Matt: Come on.

Josie: It might! It's true. It happened to a friend of mine once at a party in L.A.

Matt: Really?

Josie: Yes. Of course, she was really embarrassed and all the --

Tracy: Hi. I just came by for our swim.

Matt: Tracy, Josie came by for a swim, too.

Tracy: Yeah, I see. Hi, Josie.

Josie: Hi.

Matt: Well, I'm going to get something to drink. You guys want sodas? Sodas ok?

Tracy: Yeah.

Josie: Could you make mine diet? I'm watching my weight.

Matt: No problem, right.

Josie: Thanks.

Matt: Be right back.

Tracy: So, you having fun?

Josie: Oh, yeah. Matt and I were just talking and laughing. It's so nice here.

Tracy: Yeah. Matt really has a nice pool, huh?

Josie: Yeah, it's great. Oh, and you know what? Since I baby-sit Alli all the time, I'll probably be over here a lot.

Tracy: Josie, what are you up to?

Josie: What do you mean?

Tracy: Look, let me make this perfectly clear -- keep your claws off Matt.

Josie: Are you saying that you two are seeing each other? Because if that's the case, hey, no problem. I do not steal boyfriends.

Tracy: Really?

Josie: Really. If that's the case, I'm backing off.

Tracy: Well, yeah, Matt and I, we do have a commitment to each other, yeah.

Josie: Well, then Iím sorry for the way I acted. It just seemed to me that you two were more like friends instead of a couple.

Tracy: Well, we are. We are a friendly couple.

Matt: Here we go. A little regular coke there --

Tracy: Thank you.

Matt: A little diet there.

Josie: Thanks, Matt. It's so nice here. Too bad Kevin couldn't join us.

Matt: Yeah, he had to work.

Josie: Oh. You have such a nice brother, Tracy.

Tracy: Thank you.

Matt: Oh, yeah, Kevinís the best.

Josie: How long have you known him, Matt?

Matt: Oh, a couple years. We roomed at Winston together.

Josie: Oh, I -- I thought that you'd known Tracy first.

Matt: No.

Tracy: Heck, what do you guys say we go for a swim, huh?

Josie: Well, you must be really glad that Kevin introduced you to her. She's a nice girl.

Matt: Well, sure.

Tracy: You know, I'm really hungry. What about you, Matt, huh?

Matt: Yeah, a little, I guess.

Tracy: Well, why don't I order something from Maryís place, huh?

Josie: That's a great idea, and maybe we could get Kevin to bring it on over.

Tracy: Right.

Josie: Tell me, Matt, does Kevin ever feel left out?

Matt: Of what?

Josie: Well, you know, of you two being together.

Tracy: You know, Matt, I just want to ask, what should I order?

Josie: I mean, because --

Matt: Why would Kevin feel left out?

Josie: Well, after all, he did introduce you two, and you two must want to have some time together without him.

Matt: No, we don't.

Tracy: I was thinking maybe we should have a pizza, a hamburger, or --

Josie: You don't want to spend time alone together?

Matt: Josie, Tracy and I are just friends.

Josie: Oh. Really? Somewhere, I got the idea that you two were more than that. I hope I haven't embarrassed you two.

Tracy: No, Matt and I don't embarrass easily, do we, Matt?

Matt: Well, there was that one time --

Josie: I don't even want to hear it. Come on, Matt. Let's go for that swim!

Matt: Ok.

Josie: Come on!

[Water splashes]

Chris: Are you having fun?

Mikey: Yeah.

Chris: You know I am. I'm so happy to be here with you right now. Oh, beautiful. When I see you having fun like this, I could just -- well, never mind. We're here together, and that's all that counts. Are you having fun, huh? Oh! Oh, darling, that's -- that's so funny. Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to get you wet, too.

Mikey: Yeah.

Chris: You sweetheart. Let's go get washed up, ok?

Mikey: Yeah.

Chris: Yeah.

Cheryl: Cookies! Great. And notebooks.

Mary: Uh-huh.

Cheryl: They're always useful.

Mary: Sure.

Cheryl: And what's this? Iron-on name tags? Mom --

Mary: Ok, fine, don't take them! When your laundry gets stolen out of the dorm laundry room, do not talk to me about it!

Jake: Am I late for this farewell dinner or what?

Vince: Hey, Jake. How are you, how are you?

Jake: All right. So how's the college girl?

Cheryl: Let me get accepted first, ok, Jake?

Jake: You ready to head to the big city?

Cheryl: You bet I am.

Jake: So what's your major going to be?

Cheryl: Oh, undeclared, I think.

Jake: Sounds to me like you're taking the easy way out.

Cheryl: No, no, no, Jake. I just feel like I have to try a whole bunch of different courses and see which ones I like. I know, I know, name tags. I have to fulfill all those requirements, anyway.

Jake: No, seriously, I hear Washingtonís a great place.

Cheryl: Yeah, it is, it is. I'm looking forward to it. I was thinking about doing some volunteer work for a congressman. Capitol Hill is only a bus ride away.

Jake: That means Scottís only a bus ride away.

Vince: Uh-huh.

Cheryl: Jake --

Mary: Vince?

Vince: Hmm?

Mary: I need your help. I can't find the thing.

Vince: What thing?

Mary: The thing.

Vince: Oh! The thing! Oh, great. The thing.

Jake: I'm sorry, I -- I didn't mean to embarrass you.

Cheryl: Oh, Jake, don't worry about it. You didn't embarrass me.

Jake: You are kind of excited, though, about being with Scott, aren't you?

Cheryl: Oh, sure. Of course I am, Jake. But, you know, pretty soon Iíll be starting school and Scott will be working. I think we're just going to play it by ear, you know, see how things go. We've got to make sure that this time around, things are right for both of us.

Jake: Sounds good. I never think it's a good idea to rush into anything unless you know what's expected of you.

Cheryl: Are we talking about Scott and me or you and Marley?

Jake: Both, I guess.

Cheryl: I'm really sorry things didn't work out.

Jake: Thanks. But there's one thing I learned from what happened with Marley.

Cheryl: Oh, yeah? What's that?

Jake: If you decide that Scott is the one for you, don't take him for granted, not one day. Hang on tight, Cheryl, and never let him go -- not ever, all right?

Mitch: Drew Marsten. No state record, no federal record, nothing at Interpol.

Lisa: The door gets stuck.

Mitch: You know, you really should get that fixed sometime. Thanks again.

Lisa: Mitch, why don't you tell me what's going on? Maybe I could help.

Mitch: Well, I know, but you've already done enough, and there's no need in getting you into any sort of trouble.

Lisa: What you're doing sounds dangerous.

Mitch: Well, if I weren't doing something, it might even be more dangerous.

Lisa: Well, could you at least tell me if my computer was help?

Mitch: It was of help, but I just came up empty. We'll have to find another way.

Lisa: "We" meaning you and Felicia?

Mitch: That's right.

Lisa: Mitch, I know you love my aunt a great deal. I love her, too. Please be careful.

Mitch: We will be. Thanks. You're wearing a bikini during your period?

[Music plays]

Josie: Oh, that was great. Thanks for the swim, Matt.

Matt: Hey, no problem. Just glad you didn't lose your suit.

Josie: Oh, well, I guess it wasn't a loose as I thought.

Matt: Huh. You know, you're in good shape. You did those laps like nobody's business.

Josie: Well, I swam a lot when I was in L.A. Feels great being back in a pool again.

Matt: Well, stop by anytime you want.

Josie: Thanks. Oh, I told Tracy earlier that since I'm babysitting Alli, I'll be here a lot this summer.

Matt: Hey, great.

Josie: Next time, of course, Iíll bring my own suit.

Matt: Well, if you forget, I think that one will do fine.

Josie: Oh, thanks. See you, Matt.

Matt: Yep.

Josie: Tracy.

Tracy: Bye.

Matt: Nice she stopped by.

Tracy: Fantastic.

Matt: What do you think about her for Kevin?

Tracy: Oh, she is totally wrong for Kevin.

Matt: I don't think he feels that way.

Tracy: Yeah, well, that's too bad because she really doesn't care about him.

Matt: She went out with him the other night.

Tracy: And us.

Matt: And she's asking all those questions about him.

Tracy: She wants to find out more about you. She's after you, Matt. I mean, rather, she's after your money.

Matt: What? You're crazy.

Tracy: Come on, will you just grow up? Haven't you seen the way she looks at your house, your car, your pool?

Matt: Maybe.

Tracy: It's totally obvious.

Matt: Look, I know she's all aghast about all this stuff, but she doesn't keep that a secret.

Tracy: Oh, yeah, well, I guess she's just smarter than she looks.

Matt: Oh, you don't like her very much, do you? Look, I hope she didn't embarrass you talking about us being a couple.

Tracy: No. Well, I can understand why she'd think that. She doesn't really know us. But, you know --

Matt: Trace?

Tracy: Yeah?

Matt: We have to talk.

Michael: Hey, beautiful. Oh! Chris.

Chris: Oh, Michael.

Michael: I'm sorry. I thought it was Donna. I didn't know --

Chris: I'm sorry, it's the robe. Listen, he spilled bubble solution all over me.

Michael: He did, huh?

Chris: I put my clothes in the washer. I'm sorry. I hope you don't mind.

Michael: Well, that's ok, no. Well, I hope you don't mind if I ask you a question.

Chris: After that kiss, I think I can manage just about anything.

Michael: What are you doing here?

Chris: Oh, Donna had to go someplace and Bridget couldn't take care of him. She called me and asked me to take care of Mikey.

Michael: Really?

Chris: She didn't expect you back this early, you know?

Michael: Well, my meeting was postponed till after my trip. I hope this guy's been good for you, huh?

Chris: Oh, he has been a doll. Listen, my clothes are probably dry. I'm going to run upstairs and change.

Michael: Ok, well, that'll give me a chance to say hey to Mikey here, ok?

Chris: Ok, I'll be back in a minute.

Michael: Ok, partner. How you doing? Did you have a good time blowing bubbles?

Mikey: Yeah!

Michael: You like them bubbles?

Mikey: Yeah!

Michael: You like dinosaurs?

Mikey: No.

Amanda: Well, leave it to Sam to get all the food and forget to bring dessert.

Jamie: He'll be back in a minute. Besides, Lisaís not going to be here for at least, oh, a half an hour or so.

Amanda: Hmm, well, actually, I'm kind of glad that I get a chance to talk to you.

Jamie: Why's that?

Amanda: Um -- I was just wondering how you really feel about this engagement.

Jamie: Good. I've never been this happy in my life.

Amanda: It just seems, you know, kind of sudden. I mean, are you sure you're doing the right thing?

Jamie: Amanda, I love Lisa.

Amanda: What about Vicky?

Jamie: That's over.

Amanda: Obviously. Why?

Jamie: It just is. And I'd really rather not talk about it, ok?

Amanda: I haven't seen Vicky for a couple days. She doesn't seem to be home.

Jamie: Well, I think she left town for a week or two.

Amanda: Because of breaking up with you?

Jamie: Amanda, we were never really together.

Amanda: I know she cares a lot about you, Jamie.

Jamie: Well, she'll just have to get over that.

Amanda: Look, Jamie, I don't mean to pry into your personal life or anything, but Vickyís a really good friend of mine. I mean, she's always been there when I needed somebody to talk to, and she saved Samís life. If she's upset about something, I just want to know if there's any way I can help her.

Jamie: Oh, listen, I know Vicky can be warm and generous and oh-so-kind at times, but she can also knife you in the back.

Amanda: Jamie!

Jamie: She plays to win, Amanda! She manipulates and she lies, and I've had enough of her, ok?

Amanda: I don't know what she did, but it couldn't have been so horrible as to have you --

Jamie: Amanda, she tried to trap me! She said she did it out of love. Well, as far as I'm concerned, she has a lot to learn on that score. And if I never see her again for the rest of my life, it'll be too soon.

Jamie: What is it? I'm sorry, what is it?

Amanda: Nothing. Nothing.

Jamie: Come on, come on, tell me, what is it?

Amanda: You're not going to like it.

Jamie: Well, go ahead, try me.

Amanda: Well, I was just thinking that the only time I get as angry as you are is over somebody that I care about, somebody that I love.

Cheryl: A personal computer. It's a word processor.

Mary: Yes, it's for all of those term papers that you'll have to do the night before they're due.

Cheryl: That's great. It's so -- uh -- practical. That's great. Thanks, guys. Thank you so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Jake: I got you a present, too. It's from Cass and Nicole, as well.

Cheryl: Oh, yeah?

[Mary chuckles]

Mary: No, nothing, sweetie. You just keep going. It's fine.

Cheryl: I don't understand. It's a videotape?

Jake: Cass and Nicole gave me the footage of you modeling Nicoleís designs, and I edited it together with some of your other modeling work so you'd have some memories.

Cheryl: Oh, Jake, that's great.

Mary: Oh!

Cheryl: Thank you. I'm going to have to type up a thank-you note on my new word processor.

Vince: Oh, ho! Oh, and another thing came -- another thing came for you while you were at the store. Buh-ba-buh-ba!

Cheryl: It's freezing cold!

Vince: Yes.

Mary: Can I help you with this?

Cheryl: No, no, this is all mine.

Vince: Get your hands off it.

Mary: I love presents!

Cheryl: Oh, this is neat.

Mary: Ooh, pretty.

Cheryl: This is really nice. "For the smartest kid I know. Write down those great thoughts of yours. Maybe some day you'll want to share them. Love, john."

Mary: How sweet.

Jake: Oh, that's nice.

Cheryl: I'm going to miss john. I'm going to miss everybody. Well, I got to find some room for all this stuff.

Mary: No, no, we have -- we have another present for you.

Vince: Uh-huh, uh-huh.

Cheryl: You guys, you already got me this.

Vince: Yeah, well, this one has just a little more fun, just a little, you know --

Cheryl: It's a box inside of a box.

Vince: Well, yeah.

Mary: Inside of a box, it's a little, tiny present, little-bitty thing.

Cheryl: Oh. Mom, this is yours.

Mary: Nope. Not anymore it's not. You see, your daddy gave this to me when we first knew that you were on the way. So we figured, you know, now that you're leaving, you might -- you might like to take it with you.

Cheryl: Thanks, mom.

Mary: I can't do it.

Cheryl: Ok. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Mary: I can't believe this. I mean, I didn't even know you existed two years ago, and now you're leaving.

Cheryl: Hey, are you ok?

Mary: No. No, you're leaving. And it's all going too fast. And it's very hard to say goodbye, and I didn't know it was going to be this hard! He was supposed to be the one who was crying!

Vince: Hey, Mary, Mary, why don't you go with Cheryl to Washington?

Mary: I can't!

Vince: You know, help her get settled in. Come on!

Mary: I have a job. I can't do that.

Vince: They'll understand. Come on.

Cheryl: Come on, Mom.

Mary: I canít. And what about you?

Jake: I'll take care of Vince.

Vince: Yeah.

Mary: No, it's a silly idea.

Cheryl: No.

Mary: The last thing she needs is her mother whimpering along behind her in Washington.

Cheryl: That is the first thing that I need. Come on, come with me? It'll give us a chance to talk and do some things. Please? Come on. Please?

Mary: Give me 10 minutes to pack!

Michael: How do you like Bay City?

Chris: Oh, it's fine. Everybody's been super.

Michael: Yeah?

Chris: Even John. Don't you dare tell him I said that.

Michael: Oh, no, I wouldn't do that. I never tell John when people say nice things about him. Don't tell me -- you're from Texas.

Chris: How did you guess? And if you say my accent --

Michael: Ok, I -- your accent.

Chris: Oh, I try to hide it, but it slips out.

Michael: So what town you from?

Chris: Oh, it's too tiny to talk about. Where are you from?

Michael: Oh, Bay City. Born and bred right here in Bay City.

Chris: Oh. You must like it then, I mean, if you stayed.

Michael: Well, actually, I've lived all over the world, but Bay City called me back. How'd you hook up with John, anyway?

Chris: The want ads. I read that he was interested in hiring vets.

Michael: Ah. Are you a vet?

Chris: No. My brother was.

Michael: Oh.

Chris: And I liked the fact that John cared about veterans, especially Vietnam veterans.

Michael: Well, my brother John is a very caring and compassionate guy. But don't you tell him I said that, ok?

Chris: Ok. You know, I understand that you were in Vietnam, too?

Michael: Yeah. Yeah, I was. But John and my situation was very different.

Chris: How so?

Michael: I was a helicopter pilot on alpha carrier, a MedEvac unit. I watched a lot of the fighting from the air.

Chris: Yeah, but it still must've been pretty brutal.

Michael: It was terrible. It was just awful. But it was -- it was different for John. John was on the ground in the middle of it. I think it was really rough on him. I have a few bad nights from it on occasion.

Chris: Nightmares?

Michael: Yeah. But I certainly had it a lot easier than most of the other guys. I think both John and I have worked through an awful lot of that stuff. Well, I know I have.

Chris: Michael, what -- how -- what helped you through the worst of it?

Michael: I decided that I couldn't live with -- I couldn't live in the past anymore, not with all that had happened. I just decided that today was a new day and I was going to live life as it happened.

Chris: Life goes on, huh?

Michael: Yeah. Sure does.

Matt: Tracy -- uh -- look, you know Iíve always liked you a lot, ever since Kevin introduced us.

Tracy: Yeah.

Matt: But my feelings for you -- well, I think of you as a friend. Only a friend.

Tracy: Well, what about the other night?

Matt: The other night, we got caught up into something that would have been wrong for us.

Tracy: You know, Matt, with time, I know that your feelings could change.

Matt: I -- I really don't think that could happen. I mean, I went out on a few dates with you -- and I had a great time, I did -- but I don't think my feelings for you are going to change.

Tracy: See, Matt, if you just gave me a chance, I know that you'd want to be with me.

Matt: Tracy, Tracy, Tracy, I hate this. Now, I like you very much. I do. I really do. And that's why I have to tell you this. I don't want you to end up being hurt.

Tracy: Ok. Thanks for being honest. I -- I really appreciate that.

Matt: Listen, I'm -- I'm sorry.

Tracy: No, you don't need to apologize. I got to go.

Matt: Tracy, you haven't even been in the pool.

Tracy: Yeah, well, you know, it's getting late and --

Matt: Trace, trace, I hope things stay the same, I mean, that we're still friends. I mean that. That's important to me.

Tracy: Sure, Matt. I mean, why won't we, huh? I got to go.

Matt: Trace --

Tracy: No, really, I'm ok. Thanks.

Lisa: Hi, Sam. How are you?

Sam: Good to see you.

Lisa: I'm sorry that Iím late. I got all tied up at work.

Jamie: Hi.

Lisa: Hi.

Amanda: That's ok. No problem. Let's just get down to business. Let me see the ring.

Lisa: Oh!

Sam: Yeah.

Jamie: This is the ring my father gave me.

Amanda: Oh, this is beautiful.

Sam: Wow, that is amazing.

Lisa: Oh, it's just like my groom.

Amanda: Aw.

Sam: Oh!

Amanda: Here, let me get some wine to celebrate.

Sam: So, Lisa, tell me, how is police work treating you?

Lisa: Oh, it's the same old thing. Oh, we got a post card from Adam.

Sam: Oh, yeah?

Jamie: Well, how is he? What does he say?

Lisa: He's extended his leave once again and I think he and M.J. are really going to make a go of it.

Sam: That's fantastic.

Lisa: Yeah.

Sam: I am going to miss him, though.

Jamie: Yeah, me, too. Listen, Sam, come here, I have to talk to you about something. Excuse me.

Sam: Anything you say, o great healing one!

Amanda: Here you go.

Lisa: Are you ok?

Amanda: Of course. I'm really happy for Jamie, and you.

Lisa: When we were talking about Adam, you looked a little upset.

Amanda: It's really none of my business.

Lisa: Amanda, if there is a problem, I wish you'd tell me.

Amanda: All right. I understand that some time ago, you and Adam were closer than you are now.

Lisa: Uh -- did Vicky tell you this?

Amanda: Yeah, she did. Why?

Lisa: I don't know what she told you, but I can be pretty sure she exaggerated. Jamie and I were having some serious problems a while back. I don't need to go into all of the details, but Vicky was partly responsible, and Adam was there for me. He was a really good friend. But that's as far as it went because I had feelings for Jamie.

Amanda: I see.

Lisa: There's something else I want to tell you.

Amanda: If it's about Vicky, I don't want to hear how horrible she is.

Lisa: No, it's not about Vicky. I know she's a friend of yours, and I respect that. I just hope we can still be friends. What I wanted to tell you is I love Jamie very much, and I think I can make him very, very happy. And I'd really like to have your blessing.

Amanda: Well, welcome to the family.

Michael: So then it turns out he was under the bed the whole time.

Chris: Oh! Such a handful.

Michael: It was a little embarrassing, but he's just terrific. He's so wonderful. He's -- well, whoever would've thought he'd be such a tonic for Donna and myself? It's been a little rough since -- since the miscarriage. Listen to me. I'm talking to you as if you're an old friend. I'm sorry. Do people always just open up to you and start pouring personal things out? I mean --

Chris: No. No, but it sure feels good when they do. Confidentially, I've been trying to get your brother to open up a little bit.

Michael: Good, good. Keep at it. It's a worthwhile endeavor. I have to get him to bed.

Chris: Oh, I really better be running along.

Michael: Before you go, I wanted you to know that I know how you feel about Mikey.

Chris: What do you mean?

Michael: Well, just that he kind of grows on you.

Chris: Oh, yes, he sure does.

Michael: I'm going away on a business trip for a little while to the Persian Gulf.

Chris: Wow, when?

Michael: At the end of the week. But I was thinking that maybe Donna might appreciate having a little extra help around to help watch Mikey, if you'd be interested in sitting for him.

Chris: Yeah, I'd love to. Thanks.

Bianca: Well, that's --

Matt: Yeah, party phone. Riviera, are you there?

Josie: Captain Cool, I'm here. I'm sorry I didn't call you earlier, but I couldn't get to the phone.

Matt: Oh, that's ok.

Josie: So, what did you do today?

Matt: Nothing important. You?

Josie: I spent some time with some people.

Matt: Was it fun?

Josie: I guess. I mean, it seemed fun at the time, but now it seemed more like work.

Matt: How's that?

Josie: Well, have you ever done something because you think it's what you want and in the middle of it you start to wonder whether or not it was worth it or not?

Matt: I guess. I know I get confused about how I feel. I mean, that happens a lot.

Josie: To me, too. Listen, I'm not at home, so Iíd better get going.

Matt: Riviera, when are we going to meet?

Josie: I think it's kind of neat not knowing who we are.

Matt: It's ok, but I want to meet you.

Josie: I'm just afraid. I mean, we get along so well right now. What would happen if we got together and things weren't the same?

Matt: Well, come on, let's take a chance.

Josie: Yeah, we will, and soon. But I have to go.

Matt: Ok. Call back same time tomorrow?

Josie: You got it. I'll talk to you then.

Matt: All right.

Josie: Bye.

Matt: Bye.

Josie: I wonder what he looks like.

Matt: I wonder what she looks like.

Jamie: You know, you two have been toasting us all night long, and I'd like to return the favor. To my beautiful sister and her very lucky husband.

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Jamie: May you always stay that way.

Lisa: Hear, hear.

[Alli cries]

Sam: And may Alli grow up as soon as possible. Excuse me, folks.

Amanda: I'll help you.

Sam: Alli. What's wrong, huh?

Lisa: That sound tempting?

Jamie: The baby?

Lisa: Yeah.

Jamie: Well, the noise is fine -- as long as it belongs to Alli and not my own kid.

Lisa: Hmm, we have not discussed this.

Jamie: No.

Lisa: You do want kids some day, don't you?

Jamie: Some day, yes. Today, no. Right now, Iíd just like to spend all my free time with just one person.

Lisa: I like that.

Vince: But don't let Ada mess around. I'll be there as soon as I can. Yeah. All right, all right.

Mary: They had a seat on the plane! I got it!

Cheryl: I can't believe this. I planned this whole day so we'd have plenty of time to get to the airport, and now we're late.

Mary: Well, we wouldn't be us if we were on time for the airport. Where's your other bag? Oh, there's your other bag. Ok, two bags.

Cheryl: I got your purse.

Mary: You got my purse, ok. We have all the presents. We have -- are you driving us to the airport?

Vince: No, I can't, I can't. The main stove just broke down and I got to fix it.

Mary: No!

Jake: That's all right, I'll give them a ride. Don't worry about it. Put those down. I'll get them.

Cheryl: Thank you.

Mary: I love you. I'm going to miss you.

Jake: Ok.

Vince: Ok, drive careful.

Jake: I will, I will!

Cheryl: Goodbye, pops. I love you! I'll see you at Thanksgiving.

Mary: I'll miss this door.

Vince: All right, go miss it! Come on, let's go.

Cheryl: Pops? Pops.

Vince: Oh. Hey, now. Hey, hey. We don't want you to miss your flight.

Cheryl: I can't believe I was going to leave without giving you a real goodbye.

Vince: Well, I'm only a phone call away, and, you know, you're going to come back and visit, you know.

Cheryl: It's not the same.

Vince: I know, I know.

Cheryl: There's so much that I want to say, so much to thank you for. I guess all I can say is that I love you so much.

Vince: Come on, come on. Listen, I don't want you to be late for that plane.

Cheryl: Goodbye, Pops.
