Sam: Not bad.

Amanda: Hey.

Sam: Hi.

Amanda: We're all squeaky clean. We're going to have to take a picture of her in this thing. She's so cute!

Sam: Oh, Alli'd be cute anywhere. Aren't you, Alli? Besides, I think she's getting a little too big for that sink, you know?

Amanda: You sure you have to go in to the office? I thought you could do all the preliminary work here at home.

Sam: Yeah, well, I got some art supplies to pick up.

Amanda: I know you don't want to go.

Sam: Yeah. You know, what burns me the most is the fact that I got to go in and get art supplies that Drew Marsten bought.

Amanda: Sam --

Sam: Here I thought I was finally getting a job on my merits, and it turns out Iím just a patsy in a takeover attempt.

Amanda: He hired you because of your talent.

Sam: Oh, right, Amanda. That's why he had to trick me into my contract. Face it, I was used.

Amanda: So don't go.

Sam: My hands are tied. Besides, there is the small matter of my pride.

Amanda: Sam --

Sam: Look, Amanda --

Amanda: Your pride --

Sam: I am not going to back down from this guy. He is not going to beat me. It's too important to the Cory's, and it's sure too important to me, ok?

Amanda: I love you.

Sam: Yeah. Besides, I got something to say to Mr. Drew Marsten.

Jamie: Well, very good, Kevin. Your BPS is back to normal.

Kevin: Great.

Jamie: You know, you should consider yourself very lucky.

Kevin: Right, lucky.

Jamie: You gave everyone quite a scare, pal.

Kevin: I know.

Jamie: Maybe you don't know.

Kevin: Dr. Frame -- Jamie, I know it was wrong to take the pills.

Jamie: And stupid.

Kevin: It won't happen again.

Jamie: It won't if you're willing to admit that you have a problem.

Sharlene: Don't you ever wear clothes?

John: I just got up. It's got to be 897 degrees, and we don't have air conditioning in this house. Good morning to you, too.

[John groans]

Sharlene: I'm sorry, John. I don't have the energy for witty conversation.

John: Well, where have you been that makes you so pleasant to talk to -- the farmer's market?

Sharlene: Emergency room. Everything's ok, but it was one long night, I can tell you that.

John: Josie?

Sharlene: No, no, it's a friend of hers. Kevin Julian.

John: Is he all right?

Sharlene: Well, he -- it was close. He mixed alcohol with a bunch of pills. I think he nearly overdosed.

John: You're kidding me.

Sharlene: Kids. What'll it take for them to get the message?

John: Well, you don't know all the details.

Sharlene: I know -- come on, I know enough, John. It all boils down to one thing and that's discipline. Everybody keeps telling me that Iím so rough on Josie, but Iíll tell you something -- I'd rather be rough on her than have her in the hospital. You know, moving here was one reason I wanted to take her away from L.A. I wanted to get her away from all this stuff and -- adolescence is going to kill me. Cheers.

John: Was Josie involved?

Sharlene: Matthew Cory and Josie found Kevin and they got him to the hospital.

John: No, you should be proud of her, not worried.

Sharlene: John. You don't know anything about children.

John: No, I guess I donít. But you look exhausted. Maybe you ought to go in and lay down.

Chris: Hey, Hudson. Hot enough for you? Good morning.

Matt: Jamie, don't you think you're coming down on him a little hard?

Kevin: Matt, don't worry about it. It's ok.

Matt: No, it's not ok. Now, he partied a little too hard. He does not have a drug problem.

Jamie: Matt, this is between Kevin and me.

Matt: Well, it concerns me, too. He is my friend, right, Kev?

Kevin: Right.

Matt: And you don't have to embarrass him, for crying out loud.

Jamie: Matthew, you cannot solve a problem by ignoring it.

Matt: He does not have a problem. Now, save the sermons for the patients who need it.

Kevin: Matt, why don't you just wait outside until Jamieís done with me, all right?

Matt: Jamie doesn't mind, do you?

Jamie: All right, Kevin. I've got to get some more information from you for the medical report.

Kevin: I gave you all the information before.

Jamie: No, not all. I need to know where you got the pills.

Kevin: What do you mean?

Jamie: Were they prescribed, were they dispensed illegally, or did you steal them?

Kevin: I don't remember.

Jamie: Come off it, Kevin.

Matt: Jamie, would you just --

Jamie: Would you stay out of this, Matthew?

Kevin: I found them in a friend's medicine cabinet. I don't know what they were for.

Jamie: You took a prescribed drug without having any idea what they were for?

Kevin: Look, I didn't say it was brilliant, I just said I did it.

Matt: You asked him a question. There's your answer.

Jamie: How long have you been taking drugs, Kevin?

Kevin: I told you, it was just a one-shot deal.

Matt: See? He only did it once.

Jamie: Be straight with me, Kevin. This is very important.

Kevin: It was a stupid stunt. It's not going to happen again.

Jamie: Kevin --

Matt: He's not a criminal! He made a mistake. And aren't you listening to what he's saying?

Jamie: Matthew, I need to have a little talk with you outside.

Matt: Hey, don't worry about it. I'll take --

Jamie: Go!

Kevin: Matt --

Matt: Ok!

Sam: Ok, I'm out of here. Hey, she's asleep. Ok.

Amanda: Bye.

Sam: I'll see you two beautiful ladies later. Goodbye.

Amanda: Sam, are you sure there isn't something I can do?

Sam: Amanda, I've got it under control, ok?

Amanda: This takeover attempt concerns me, too.

Sam: Yeah. Well, it wouldn't if Iíd been on my toes. Sometimes I think that I should have stayed at Cory.

Amanda: How were you to know what was going to happen with Drew Marsten? Even my father had no idea.

Sam: Amanda, I got us into this mess. I'll get us out, ok? Besides, it's just a job. The money's helping, you know.

Amanda: Money is not an issue here. I always have --

Sam: Amanda, I don't want you to worry about this, ok?

Amanda: Sam --

Sam: All I want you to worry about is taking care of our home, our beautiful daughter, and your loving husband when he comes home from a hard day at the office, ok?

Amanda: I bet you never thought you would sound so corporate.

Sam: Yeah, well, since we got married, there's a lot of stuff that I never expected, but I do love it.

Amanda: I feel so helpless.

Sam: Just do me a favor -- be here when I get back? Please.

Amanda: What time are you getting home?

Sam: I don't know, but I promise, as soon as possible, ok? All right? Have a good day. Bye.

[Door opens and closes]

Chris: Good morning, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Chris, I didn't know you were here.

John: Morning, Macaleer.

Sharlene: Maybe I'll fix us all some breakfast, huh? For three?

John: Great.

Sharlene: If y'all don't mind if Iím here.

Chris: Sharlene please let me explain.

Sharlene: There's nothing to explain, Chris. We're all adults here. I'm just glad that Josie wasn't here. Perhaps by the time she gets here, y'all can put some clothes on.

John: Jumping to conclusions, Sharlene.

Chris: I had a rough night.

Sharlene: Oh.

Chris: Sharlene, nothing happened.

Sharlene: Well, I suppose you slept in the armchair, huh?

John and Chris: Yes.

Chris: I was attacked last night.

Sharlene: What?

Chris: I was babysitting for Michael Hudson, and somebody broke in and knocked me unconscious.

Sharlene: Chris, Iím sorry.

Chris: I was pretty shook up by it, and John offered --

Sharlene: Well, are -- what, are you all right? Did you see a doctor?

Chris: I'm fine. Listen, it takes more than a hit on the head to keep me down.

Sharlene: What about Mikey? Was anybody else hurt?

Chris: No, and that's the strange thing. They didn't even steal anything.

John: The police seem to think it has something to do with my brother's business dealings, some kind of scare tactics.

Sharlene: Oh, honey, it's a blessing or a curse.

Chris: I'm just so grateful that Mikey is ok.

John: Well, looks like we all had sort of a rough night, doesn't it? Jason, what are you doing here?

Jason: What are you, my welcome-home committee?

Sharlene: Jason, why didn't you call? We didn't expect you!

Jason: Obviously. When I asked John to come over here and stay, it was to look after you, not you and Chris.

Sharlene: Jason, that is not the case. You are jumping to conclusions.

Jason: Oh, I see.

Sharlene: Yeah, John has been a big help around here.

Jason: Oh, I'm sure he's been a big help to Chris, too.

John: Oh, cut it, Jase.

Chris: Jason, you don't understand.

Jason: Well, whoa, whoa -- hey, hey, what is that? Is that how you dress the hired help now, John? You made some big changes since Iíve been gone.

Chris: Jason, let's leave John out of this, ok?

Jason: Oh, I want John right in the middle of it. It's man-to-man, one-on-one.

Chris: That's going to be a little difficult. There's a woman involved.

John: You're overreacting here a little bit, Jason.

Sharlene: Why don't we just sit down and have some breakfast? I know that you're probably a little tired after this trip from wherever you've --

Jason: Why don't you come outside with me? We'll talk it over quietly and privately, ok?

John: Well, Jason, Iíd do that, except we haven't had breakfast yet.

Chris: Jason, would you please leave John alone?

Jason: When did you start getting so protective of little John, huh?

Chris: I don't need to tolerate this, you know? I don't have to put up with it.

Jason: How about you, John boy? You going to put up with this, either?

Matt: Jamie, I want to be with my friend. I'm not up for a lecture from big brother.

Jamie: Well, you're going to get a lecture, and not just as your brother -- but as your best friend's doctor. You are not helping him one bit by defending him.

Matt: Yeah? Well, you were going pretty rough on him in there.

Jamie: Matthew, he has a serious problem.

Matt: What do you mean?

Jamie: Listen, if you want to be a good friend, you have to start by facing the facts. Now, suicide is one of the leading causes of teenage mortality, and a lot of it stems from drug abuse.

Matt: You think Kevin really tried to kill himself?

Jamie: Matthew, I know the signs. I've been personally involved in cases like this before, and believe me, it's not going to stop when he's discharged.

Matt: Yeah, but he said he's --

Jamie: Look, drugs lie, Matthew. If Kevinís going to beat this thing, he's going to need help from his friends, yes, but also from trained professionals.

Matt: You really think that it's that bad?

Jamie: Yes.

Matt: When I talked Kevin into leaving Winston and come with me to Bay City, things were supposed to be better.

Jamie: Did he have a problem there?

Matt: No, no, no. He was moody sometimes, but I figured that was just because he didn't have a lot of money like most of the kids there. When he was here with us, I thought he would fit in with us. See, I have a feeling that he did. But even if he didn't, I mean, that's no reason to kill himself.

Jamie: Come on. Let's work together and help him get through this. Come on.

Drew: Yes, chief, I understand. I was hoping we could accomplish more with the Coryís in Europe. You're the one who didn't show up. Yes, I know we're behind schedule. I'm working as fast as I can. Yes, chief. I'll try harder. No, you don't have to reassign me. By Friday? I'll try. No, I'll do better than that. I will deliver some serious results by the end of the day, Friday. You have my word on it.

Sam: We need to talk.

Drew: Not now, Sam.

Sam: I said, we needed to talk.

Drew: Not now.

Sam: I want out of my contract.

Drew: This is not a debate, Sam. You're wasting your time.

Sam: No! You're wasting my time. I don't want to work for you.

Drew: Tough. Get used to it.

Sam: You know, I was naive to trust you before, but I promise that won't happen again.

Drew: I suggest that you adjust your attitude accordingly. You're stuck here.

Sam: Then you don't know who you're dealing with, do you?

[Music plays]

Josieís voice: Matt?

Matt: What?

Josie: Matt? I got you a cup of coffee. I don't know if you'll drink it, but I thought maybe you could use it.

Matt: Sure. I could. Thanks. I really appreciate you staying last night. I'm sure Kevin does, too.

Josie: It's no problem. I'm worried about him. I'm worried about you, too.

Matt: I'm fine.

Josie: All those things Kevin said at the mill about being jealous must have been kind of hard to hear.

Matt: I just keep thinking how hard it was on him all along and I didn't even notice.

Josie: Matt, stop blaming yourself. You had nothing to do with it.

Matt: I had everything to do with it. I knew Iíve had it easier than most people my age, but I've never gone through anything like this.

Josie: And you were great. You saved Kevinís life.

Matt: No, we saved Kevinís life.

Josie: Kevin's very lucky to have you for a friend.

Matt: I'm not so sure. I mean, I didn't realize he was in trouble until it was too late. It makes me wonder how many other people Iíve turned my back on.

Josie: Matt, stop beating yourself up.

Matt: No, no, I've been a jerk about this whole --

Josie: You know, if I ever got into trouble, I'd want you for a friend.

Matt: Thanks a lot. You know, you're not so bad yourself. I'm sorry I yelled at you last night. I was way out of line.

Josie: That's ok.

Matt: No, it's not ok. I've got to learn to think before I spout off at people. You accept my apology?

Josie: Sure.

[Matt sighs]

Matt: It's about time I stopped causing problems for everyone.

Josie: I know the feeling.

Matt: You do?

Josie: I've never told anyone this before, but I always felt like I was the reason why my parents broke up.

Matt: How could you be the cause of that?

Josie: My father left before I was born. Didn't want to have a kid. I just feel like Iím always messing things up my whole life.

Matt: I don't see how anyone would not want to have you around.

Drew: Sam, this is a large corporation. Whether you're personally fulfilled or not, you're hired to do graphics, well executed and on time.

Sam: Ooh, I may work for you, but you don't own me. You'll get the work well executed and on time, but you won't get my respect.

Drew: That's your prerogative, Sam.

Sam: It's amazing to me that a man in your position has to stoop so low just to hire a graphic artist.

Drew: Sam, you'll do better work if you're less temperamental. Think of the big picture.

Sam: The big picture?

Drew: Our corporate image. Bennett Corporation likes to take time and care with its talent. It likes to look towards the future, unlike "Brava."

Sam: Now, I would appreciate it if you don't trash Mac Cory in my presence. Do you understand that?

Drew: I admire your loyalty to your father-in-law, but that's why you left him, isn't it?

Sam: It was a lot more than that. You see, I do and always will respect Mac Cory as a fair and decent businessman.

Drew: Admirable, Sam. And I hope someday I can earn that respect. Maybe when you're more fully aware of the nature of big business.

Sam: This kind of big business I don't like.

Drew: Sam, did you ever play team sports?

Sam: Sure.

Drew: Well, it's the same kind of competition. You don't hate your opponent, but you do everything you can to win.

Sam: See, this isn't a game.

Drew: No, maybe it's not. But when was the last time you were paid this much money for recreation?

Sam: I'm going to my office. Excuse me.

Drew: Sam, you've been drafted on the team. Make the most of it. You might find you have a flair for success.

[Phone rings]

Amanda: Hello?

Drew: Hello, Amanda. This is Drew.

Amanda: Why are you calling?

Drew: Well, I was hoping we could meet for lunch.

Amanda: I'm sorry, that's impossible.

Drew: But it's important. It's about your husband's future.

Amanda: Why don't you just get to the point, Mr. Marsten?

Drew: Not over the phone.

Amanda: I'm sorry; I can't get away right now. I don't have a sitter, and --

Drew: I'll tell you what -- why don't I drop by? But let's keep this meeting between the two of us. You know how proud Sam is.

John: Ok, Jason, let's get this over with.

Jason: Yeah, I would like to. I leave, I come back, I find you taking over my home, my women.

John: Hold it, hold it. Now, you asked me to come out here and watch your house. I did that. But I don't think that Chris considers herself your woman.

Jason: Hey, I was interested in Chris. You were treating her dirty. I was treating her nice. You remember? But I turn my back -- wham! -- You're right in there.

John: You don't know what you're talking about.

Jason: Yeah, I've dealt with a lot of guys like you. You turn your back on them and they move right in. John, we're supposed to be partners, friends. Now, is that how you treat a friend?

John: Ok, Jason, Iím going to try to clear this up for you. Look, Chris may or may not have a thing for you, I don't know. But if the two of you are so close, why do you suppose it is she's coming on to me?

[Joan groans]

Jason: Get off your back.

Sharlene: Jason, I don't believe this! What kind of grown-up behavior is this?

John: Oh, Sharlene, you're going to spoil his fun.

Sharlene: Are you all right?

John: Oh, yeah, yeah.

Chris: I don't believe this macho behavior.

John: Oh, just calm down. I think Jason just had a momentary flashback to puberty, that's all. Go on back inside.

Sharlene: You think you two boys are going to behave?

John: Sure, sure, it's ok. Go on.

John: She's right, you know, Jason. You're acting like a jackass.

Jason: Stabbing a guy in the back is different. Now, why don't you just butt out and leave what's mine alone?

John: That's really how you see this, isn't it?

Jason: Yeah.

John: Well, I don't run away from relationships anymore, Jason. I outgrew that.

Jason: Well, what's that mean? You want to fight about it? You want to have a challenge on it, is that it?

John: I really like you, and I respect you. You're my friend and you're my partner. So let's not let a woman mess that up. Whatever happens, happens, ok?

Jason: It's just not worth it, is it? I'm not worried about the outcome, anyhow.

[Jason makes a clicking sound]

John: Hmm.

Tracy: Matt?

Matt: Tracy.

Tracy: I -- I was so worried.

Matt: He's going to be all right.

Tracy: I know. I tried to get here as fast as I could, you know, but I had -- I had to set up at Maryís place --

Matt: Ok, ok, ok, you're here now. You're here now.

[Tracy sighs]

Tracy: Thank God you were there for him. You must hate always having to help us. We owe you so much.

Matt: No, you don't owe me anything.

Tracy: Yeah, I do.

Matt: You donít. That's what I'm here for. Josie helped me out a lot. I couldn't have made it without her.

Tracy: Thank you. I am -- I want to go see him now, ok?

Matt: All right.

Tracy: All right.

Josie: I'll wait out here.

Kevin: Tracy.

Tracy: Hi, Kev.

Matt: I think I'll leave you two alone. I'll be right outside.

Tracy: Thanks, Matt.

Kevin: Tracy, don't just stare at me like that.

Tracy: Just tell me one thing. Is this going to be a rerun of the way it was before?

[Knock on door]

Amanda: Oh, shoot. The bathroom -- just a minute. Ok, Alli, your first lesson of business. Be tough. Mr. Marsten.

Drew: Hello, Amanda. I thought we agreed you'd call me Drew.

Amanda: Please come in.

Drew: Oh, this must be Alli. Why, she's beautiful. She looks just like her mother.

Amanda: What is it that you came to talk to me about, Mr. Marsten?

Drew: About Sam.

Amanda: Yes, I know it's about Sam. Is there a problem?

Drew: Well, I think we both agree that Sam is not very pleased with his present working situation. My employees are very important to me, Amanda, and I was hoping that you and I could work out a more pleasant situation.

Amanda: You're a very busy executive. Why would you want to concern yourself with making Sam happy?

Drew: Sam's a very gifted artist. Besides, his connection to the Cory's has caused me some -- well, some extenuating circumstances.

Amanda: And you're right on both counts.

Drew: Amanda, I'm not a villain. I don't want to see Sam unhappy. Or you, for that matter.

Amanda: You needn't concern yourself with me.

Drew: Look at this -- now, this is exciting. Why, everything in here is just -- is just wonderful.

Amanda: Can we please get to the point?

Drew: The point is Iím here to make a proposition, and I think you might want to hear my offer.

Sam: Men's lounge. Supply closet. Executive suite? Why, sure, Mr. Marsten, I can be a team player. Yeah. My team's going to win, too.

Sharlene: What have you got in here?

Jason: My dirty clothes.

Sharlene: Yeah, a couple weeks' worth, at least. So, when are you going to tell me what you've been doing?

Jason: I told you I had some things I had to take care of.

Sharlene: Well, I hope those things were important enough for you to leave your responsibilities here.

Jason: Hey, I would not have gone had it not been really important, Shar.

Sharlene: If this is so important, then what is the big mystery?

Jason: No mystery, I just don't want to talk about it.

Sharlene: Well, you forget -- I have ways of making you talk!

Jason: Hey -- see? I think really maybe we ought to be talking about your life, though. What's happening there?

Sharlene: You don't want to know.

Jason: More problems with Josie?

Sharlene: Yeah, but nothing I can't survive.

Jason: I've got an idea. Why don't you take two minutes out of playing mama and concentrate on being a woman?

Sharlene: What are you talking about?

Jason: Well, when I came in earlier, I thought maybe there was something going on between you and John.

Sharlene: Jason, don't be ridiculous. John and I are friends.

Jason: You defended him so well. I saw sparks, didn't I?

Sharlene: Must be the heat. Honestly.

Jason: John take good care of you and Josie while I was gone?

Sharlene: Jason, unlike my teenaged daughter, the thought of men is nowhere on my mind. I pushed that aside a long time ago.

Jason: Well, maybe you ought to pull that back in. Hey, it's no big deal just to admit that you kind of find him attractive.

Sharlene: You know, you've always been nosy.

Jason: Hmm.

Sharlene: You have always been blunt, to the point of rudeness -- hmm? -- And Iím real glad you're back. Now things can get back to normal.

Jason: What do you mean, back to normal?

Sharlene: I mean, now John can go back and live on his boat -- thank you very much -- live out his life, date whomever he likes. Look, Jason, you know you can't always have things your way.

Jason: Hmm. Hmm.

Amanda: I really don't think that you and I should be discussing any business. I'm not even directly involved.

Drew: Well, of course you are, Amanda. You had that wonderful dinner party for me the other day. Obviously, you're involved. And I understand that you write for "Brava."

Amanda: This is between you and my father. It isn't about me. It isn't even about Sam. I'd like to keep it that way.

Drew: It's too late.

Amanda: Ahem, Mr. Marsten, look around you. We have just started our life together. We haven't even been married for a year. We have enough to deal with other than being used in your takeover attempt.

Drew: I never meant for you to feel used.

Amanda: Then why would you trick Sam?

Drew: You know, you Coryís have such an idealistic notion of corporate structure. I didn't realize that you felt there was any interference. I didn't mean for anything to happen between you and Sam.

Amanda: Oh, there is no problem between Sam and me. We're just concerned about our family.

Drew: Well, what I mean is there shouldn't be politics hanging over your head this early on in your relationship. See, here's my offer -- and it may take a couple days to finalize all the papers, but I'm going to release Sam from his contract if that's what you really want. No strings.

Amanda: Why are you doing this?

Drew: Let's just say Iím correcting a mistake Iíve made, and you have helped me see that mistake. I think I can have everything finalized by Friday. Soon enough?

Amanda: Mr. Marsten --

Drew: "Drew," please.

Amanda: Drew that would be perfect.

Drew: Good. So be it.

Amanda: It just isn't a good situation for Sam.

Drew: Well, never let it be said that I can't be fair.

Amanda: I really appreciate this. By Friday?

Drew: Mm-hmm. I'll let you know when everything's finalized.

Amanda: Thank you. Thank you very much.

Drew: Well, you're welcome very much. I'll talk to you Friday.

Kevin: Tracy, I'm sorry this --

Tracy: Kevin, don't -- haven't you learned anything after what happened at Winston, huh? We're still covering up for Tad. I don't want this to keep going on. I mean, especially now. We've got a fresh start. We've got new jobs, new friends.

Kevin: I know that. I can take care of it.

Tracy: Great. You can take care of it, huh? Tad kept supplying you with drugs, you ran out of money. You said you could take care of it, but you didnít. Kevin, when are you going to get it? He nearly raped me trying to collect a debt. Again, you said you could take care of it, right? We had to run away to another town because you couldn't take care of it, and you still canít.

Kevin: I said Iím sorry. What more do you want me to say?

Tracy: I just -- I want you to say it's not going to happen again. Kevin, we got our whole lives ahead of us. Please, don't let the drugs mess it up. - (Sobbing) - bored to tears.

[Music plays]

Amanda: Hi. I didn't think you'd ever get home.

Sam: Yeah, I had some errands to run.

Amanda: I have some great news.

Sam: Good, I could use it.

Amanda: Why, what's the matter?

Sam: I had that conversation with Mr. Drew Marsten. Told him how I felt. A lot of good it did. He's still holding me to that contract.

Amanda: Well, I think --

Sam: I don't know. If I couldn't convince him to let me out of that contract with the stuff I said, nobody could. I'm going to have to figure out another way around this. I'll think of something. Anyway, enough about work. Um -- I'm sorry, I cut you off. You had some good news?

Amanda: Uh -- the baby -- she said something today.

Sam: No kidding?

Amanda: Yeah. She said "Da." It wasn't quite "Da-Da," but it was --

Sam: She said "Da?" Hi, Alli! Did you call for your daddy today? Yeah? Did you say that? Can you say "Da-Da"? Can you say "Da-Da"? Yeah, sure. Come on, again. Sure. "Da-Da."

Jamie: What are you doing out here?

Matt: Uh -- Josie went home. I think Tracyís still in with Kevin.

Jamie: Oh. Listen, Matt, I hope you didn't think I was coming down too hard on your friend.

Matt: No, no, no. You were right. I understand now.

Jamie: It's just that working here, I've seen a lot of young lives wasted, you know, day after day, and I -- I don't want to see that happen to you or any of your friends.

Matt: You really like helping people, right? I mean, you're not just doing this for the money.

Jamie: Yeah, well, you know, making a difference, it's a great feeling.

Matt: That's a far cry from when you used to drop water balloons on my head from the second-story window.

[Jamie laughs]

Matt: No, I want to help people, too.

Jamie: Well, Mom and Mac will be delighted to hear you want to go to med school.

Matt: No -- I'm not sure about that, but --

[Jamie laughs]

Matt: I do want to help Kevin.

Jamie: Well, you can. He's being discharged tomorrow, and he'll need to get some counseling. And you can encourage him. Come on, give me a call tonight at home, and Iíll tell you about some of the programs we have here, ok?

Matt: All right, Jamie, thanks a lot.

Jamie: Ok.

Matt: I really appreciate it.

Jamie: I'll talk to you later.

Matt: All right.

Matt: Kevin, what are you doing? Get back in there. You cannot leave yet.

Kevin: Just chill out. I'm fine. Tracy went to work. Just give me a lift home, huh?

Matt: No way.

Kevin: What are you --?

Matt: Now, you lied to Jamie about your drug abuse and I covered for you, but no more.

Kevin: What are you -- you can't keep me here, you know.

Matt: Look, you're not taking the easy way out by hiding.

Kevin: I'm not hiding, I'm leaving.

Matt: You are going to face this thing.

Kevin: You don't understand.

Matt: I understand. I'm beginning to. And I'm going to help you whether you like it or not.

Singer: Givers and takers and lovers and heartbreakers so take it slow and be sure you know there's winners and losers

Sharlene: Oh, honey, Iím glad you're home. How's --

Josie: Mama.

Sharlene: What's this?

Josie: I'm really sorry for the way I've been acting lately. I just didn't realize how lucky I was until I went through this whole thing with Kevin.

Sharlene: Oh, sweetheart.

Josie: And I'm really -- I'm really going to try to -- to be more patient and Iím even going to like this farm.

Sharlene: Well.

Josie: I'm just so glad that we're healthy and safe and, you know, we have each other.

Sharlene: I appreciate that, honey. And we are fortunate. I'll try, and I'm glad you'll try, too. You know, you've just made this transition much easier for me. We're going to be fine. Ooh, just fine.

Singer: And be sure you know

John: I'll need copies of those invoices so I can send them to the suppliers.

Chris: Ok. I can have them for you by lunch time.

John: Thanks.

Chris: John, I'm awful sorry about what happened. Between last night with Donna and Michael, and now this morning with Sharlene and Jason --

John: Come on, come on, none of that was your fault. You ok now?

Chris: Oh, I guess the truth is Iím still kind of spooked by that break-in. I never realized an incident like that could leave you so vulnerable.

John: You're not used to feeling that way, are you?

Chris: No, sir.

John: Well, that makes two of us. I guess we both have to learn how.

Chris: I'm still real worried about Mikey, though. He's so precious. I don't know what I'd do if something happened to him.

John: Yeah, he's a pretty special kid, isn't he?

Chris: Do you think he's in any danger?

John: No, even if he were, my brother's going to have every security guard in town up at his place. Mikey couldn't be safer if he were at Fort Knox.

Chris: Yeah. Oh, John, thanks for letting me stay over. And you were a real gentleman about sleeping on the chair, even though it looked so torturous.

John: Well, I survived. But I won't promise to stay there next time.

[Chris laughs]

Jason: I got the truck loaded. I got to go into the hospital and do some surveys on the hospice wing.

John: You want me to go with you?

Jason: Yeah, and Barry had some questions. He's at the shop.

John: I guess I'll head on over there, then.

Jason: Yeah, he's waiting for you.

John: Ok. Bye.

Chris: Bye.

Jason: Well, I don't believe it. We're actually alone.

Chris: Well, what can I do for you, Jason?
