Drew: Look, Chief, we've gone the whole route -- the stockholders, the foreign subsidiaries, even the S.E.C. Mac Cory has enough resources to hold on to his company. I know, I know. I said I would deliver, and I will. It's just going to have to take a more personal touch. Because I've studied Mac, and that's the only way to handle it. Chief, trust me. Yes. Yes. I think something will happen soon, sometime this afternoon. No. No, he's not in his office. He's having a christening for his granddaughter. I just sent him a little something that's going to change his mind about everything.

Sam: Mac, we're all out by the pool. You going to join us?

Mac: Well, is Alexandra out there?

Sam: She sure is.

Mac: Well, then Iím coming right out.

Sam: All right. Is that for Alli, too?

Mac: No, you know, I thought it was. It was just delivered, but the card says it's for me.

Sam: Oh, I think I know who sent that.

Mac: Yeah?

Sam: Yeah. Well, see, Amanda, she's been kind of going nuts with the camera, taking a lot of pictures of the baby, and she wanted to give you something special today.

Mac: Ah, that sounds like her, doesn't it?

Sam: Yeah, it sure does.

Mac: Well, you really think that I ought to open it?

Sam: Well, of course. Let's check out and see what Amanda cooked up, shall we? Let's see Ė

Chris: I thought -- I had the impression you invited me over here for lunch.

John: I did. You're the one who couldn't decide what to eat.

Chris: I -- I remember now. Uh -- hmm. Whoa, big fella. Whew. Donít.

John: Why not?

Chris: Uh -- you know, you're not going to respect me in the morning.

John: Oh, no, no. On the contrary, if things work out like I think they will, I'll have a whole new respect for you.

Chris: Yeah. Uh -- no. Please.

John: Does it occur to you that you're giving me mixed messages here?

Chris: Yeah, it does, and that's why Iím going to leave.

John: Whoa. Wait a minute, wait a minute. What do you think you're doing?

Chris: Uh -- John, this wouldn't be right between us.

John: No, I think it would be very right.

Chris: I donít. I'm sorry.

John: You want to tell me what the hell is going on here?

Chris: Yeah. I made a mistake.

John: Listen, I don't know what the hell you're trying to pull, but if you think you're just going to walk out of here without an explanation, you're dead wrong!

John: Well?

Chris: This is -- this is real hard for me, John.

John: Look, is it me? Is it something that I said, something I did?

Chris: No, it's me.

John: You want to talk about it?

Chris: Ok. John, I think you're so attractive. That's not news. What woman wouldn't think that about you?

John: Well, there were a few that managed to resist. I think it was in the Philippines or maybe in Singapore or something.

Chris: You're so funny, and you care about things and people.

John: So far, I like this conversation a lot.

Chris: I really like you. It's just that things don't feel right, and because I like you so much, I wouldn't want something to happen to come between us, you know, and make us feel strange with one another. And so Iím sorry if I led you on.

John: It's a little late for that now, isn't it?

Chris: Oh, I know. I'm sorry. How many times can I say Iím sorry?

John: You know, it's like you've got this whole thing already preplanned, orchestrated, like we're on a schedule or something. You know, week one, casual banter. Week two, our first date. Week three, heavy kissing, major come-ons, and then, "no, no, no! Stop! Don't!"

Chris: Are you through?

John: I haven't been through anything like this since I was in high school, for crying out loud.

Chris: Well, you're not making me feel any better.

John: Chris, why don't you just stop -- stop worrying about what's going to happen to our relationship at work and just deal with us.

Chris: No, I -- I can't do that, John.

John: I want you to look me in the eye and tell me that you want to leave.

John: I thought so.

Chris: Don't gloat, Hudson.

John: No, it's --

Chris: I really have to --

John: Not a gloat. Not a gloat.

Mac: Uh, uh -- hold on there.

Sam: What?

Mac: Well, I mean, if this is a picture of my granddaughter, from my daughter, I just think -- well, maybe Iíd like to, you know, open it in private.

Sam: Mac, it's ok if you want to get sentimental.

Mac: I'm not going to get sentimental, Sam.

Sam: Come on, I saw you at the christening. It's ok.

Mac: That was allergy, pure allergy.

Sam: Right. Mac, my daughter is very lucky to have you as a grandpa. And Amanda and I are very lucky to have you, too.

Mac: Thank you, Sam. I hope you know that you and Alexandra and Amanda are the very lights of my life.

Sam: Mac, I know this takeover thing is going to burn you out.

Mac: Oh, well, I'm hanging in there, holding on.

Sam: I'd like to help.

Mac: That's very generous of you, Sam.

Sam: Mac, Drew Marsten tore up my contract, right?

Mac: Yeah, very relieved about that.

Sam: Yeah, so am I. I don't know why he did it, but he did, and I'm glad. What Iím trying to say is I'm out of a job right now.

Mac: You're a very talented guy. You're going to find a lot of other opportunities.

Sam: Well, yeah. I didn't want to say this now, but I'd like to go back to an opportunity that I had and gave up.

Mac: Uh -- do you mean what I think you mean?

Sam: Yeah. I'd like my old job back. Mac, I want to work for you again.

[Thunder]

Rachel: Well, if it doesn't look so threatening in a moment, we can go back out. Do you want me to take the baby?

Lisa: Are you kidding? I haven't had my hands on her since we left the church. I'm your godmother, sweetie. We're going to have so much fun.

Rachel: Where's Felicia?

Lisa: Oh, I saw Ada corner her and Mitch. Something about taking them to the greenhouse.

Rachel: Oh, Mom showing off her roses again. Well, if it's going to really rain, they should stay in there. Now --

Jamie: Hmm?

Rachel: I've got you here.

Jamie: Yes.

Rachel: My family, and Iíve been wanting to take some pictures --

Jamie: Pictures.

Rachel: Before the rest of the family comes, so why don't I start with the godparents? You stand right over there next to Lisa. Lisa, can you turn the baby around? Is she getting cranky?

Jamie: Are you sure you know how to handle that thing, Mom?

Rachel: Yeah, just be quiet and smile.

Jamie: What do you think? Does Lisa look good holding a baby, or what?

Rachel: There we go. That's a nice one.

Jamie: Huh? Does she look pretty?

Rachel: Of course she does. And since I'm already the g word, I might as well go right on with it.

Lisa: Well, especially if they're as sweet as this one.

Rachel: I don't know, I don't think I have her in focus. There she is. Oh.

Amanda: I'm so happy that you were able to make it. I know it's probably kind of difficult.

Vicky: Oh, no, Amanda. I'm --

Amanda: I know it's hard for you to see Jamie with Lisa.

Rachel: Amanda, I need the mother!

Amanda: I'll be right there.

Vicky: Amanda, you better go get your picture taken. Go on.

Amanda: Look, you are still a good friend of mine, and you're going to stay that way. Nothing's going to change, ok?

Vicky: Good.

Amanda: I'll talk to you later.

Vicky: Ok.

Rachel: Good!

Amanda: Ok.

Rachel: Oh, there you go. Get in the picture.

Jamie: Mac?

Mac: Yeah?

Jamie: Mac, come on.

Rachel: Is Sam there?

Mac: Yes, he's here.

Rachel: Ok, come on, get into the picture quick. The baby's getting tired.

[All talking at once]

Mac: Hey, wait a minute. Wait a minute, you got to be in the picture, too.

Sam: Yeah, come on, Rachel.

Mac: Come on, Rachel, get in the picture.

Rachel: Squish in.

Sam: Rachel, get in the picture.

Rachel: Who's going to take the picture?

Mac: Vicky?

Lisa: Don't tip me over.

Mac: Would you mind taking a picture of all of us?

Rachel: All right, come on. Quick, quick, quick! The baby's getting tired. All right.

[Alli cries]

Sam: Quick. Alli, shh, shh, shh.

Amanda: Aw.

Vicky: Ok.

Sam: Smile, everybody.

Mac: Aw. Did that flash scare you, honey? We won't do it anymore.

Rachel: Talk about a natural.

Mac: Yeah.

Matt: Kevin. What are you doing with this?

Kevin: I was just looking at it. I was just about to put it back.

Matt: What's the matter?

Kevin: Nothing.

Matt: You're sweating.

Kevin: Don't give me the third degree, all right? I'm sick of it.

Matt: Hey, are you high?

Kevin: I just want to get out of here.

Matt: Come on, what's going on?

Kevin: Leave me alone, all right?

Matt: What were you doing upstairs?

Kevin: Matt, get out of my way!

Matt: Are you high again?

Chris: Ok, that's it.

John: Oh, I wish you'd make up your mind.

Chris: Yeah, well, your attitude isn't helping any.

John: Oh, come on. Listen, what do you want me to think? I mean, one minute you're lying on my bed with me. The next minute you're halfway out the door!

Chris: Yeah, well, you're taking advantage of me.

John: Come on, Chris, I'm not the one who waltzed in here and did a gypsy rose lee down to my skivvies.

Chris: Don't make fun of me.

John: Listen, if you don't want to be with me, why'd you go along with all of this?

Chris: I never said I was ready to sleep with you.

John: Wait a minute -- the night that you stayed at the farm, sleeping in my bed while I slept in an armchair, you said you wanted to be with me. Now, what was I supposed to think that meant?

Chris: You had it all figured out that we were going to sleep together today, didn't you?

John: Yeah, I did.

Chris: Mm-hmm, and that's why you're so angry. Your macho pride is hurt.

John: You are a crazy woman.

Chris: Shut up!

John: I'm not going to take the blame for all of this. I didn't imagine what was going on here today.

Chris: I don't believe this. You are being so cruel to me.

John: I'm not going to take the blame for this. That's all there is to it.

Chris: What are you doing?

John: Something I should have done an hour ago.

Chris: John, don't be angry.

John: Get your things together.

Chris: What?

John: I don't like playing games.

Chris: John --

John: Yeah, listen, how long will it take you to get a cab down here to the waterfront?

Jamie: Nice party.

Amanda: Thanks.

Jamie: Who are you looking for?

Amanda: Vicky.

Jamie: You know, I have to admit, Amanda, that Iím a little surprised that she came. I mean, she already tried to corner me once.

Amanda: Jamie, look, Vicky is a friend of mine, a very good friend, and I really wouldn't mind it so much if you could at least take it a little easy on her.

Jamie: What did I do?

Amanda: I just don't think it's necessary for you to throw your happiness back in her face.

Jamie: Amanda, I'm not going to start treating Lisa badly just because Vicky is in the room.

Amanda: Nobody asked you to do that.

Jamie: She already tried to run my life with her hurt feelings.

Amanda: Well, she's not doing that today. She's left.

Jamie: Yeah, and she made everybody very well aware of that fact, too.

Amanda: You sound so suspicious.

Jamie: Yeah, well, Vicky taught me to be that way.

Amanda: How?

Jamie: You know, I really don't want to talk about it, but if she's going to come to family gatherings at my family's house, she's going to have to get used to the fact that I am with Lisa and in love with Lisa. That's just the way it is.

Mac: Well, you're very welcome.

Sam: Some party, huh, Mac?

Mac: Yep, but Iím glad we moved in from the pool because I think it's going to pour.

Sam: Yeah, I agree. Uh, Mac?

Mac: Hmm?

Sam: Did you have a chance to think over that idea that I mentioned earlier?

Mac: Oh, about your coming back to work for "Brava"?

Sam: Yeah. Look, Mac, I know I left in kind of a huff, but, see, I didn't know then what I know now.

Mac: What do you know now, Sam?

Sam: I miss our arguments. I learned a lot when I worked at "Brava," Mac, and I can't get the magazine out of my mind. I mean, I've got these ideas in my head.

Mac: I remember the fights and your ideas.

Sam: They weren't all half bad, were they?

Mac: They were very good. Take your design for the cover --

Sam: Yeah?

Mac: Tested extremely well, Sam.

Sam: So, what do you think? Can I have my old job back?

Mac: Well, see, the problem is, Sam, when you quit, I hired someone else for your job. And as it turns out, she's done very well. I mean, she agrees with everything I say.

Sam: Yeah?

Mac: Yeah.

Sam: Well, ok. I can understand that. That's ok.

Mac: But the thing is, she is not artistic director material, so if you did come back, I'm afraid you'd have to be satisfied with that job.

Sam: With a promo-- you're kidding!

Mac: No, I'm not. Hey, Amandaís coming. Don't say anything about it. We'll make a big announcement.

Sam: She's going to look at my face and know --

Mac: No, she's not.

Amanda: Ahem. What are you two talking about?

Mac: Well, uh --

Sam: Uh, the food. The food is really good.

Mac: How good the food is.

Sam: Yeah, the quiche is outstanding.

Mac: Terrific job.

Rachel: Darling, Julie Ann is looking for you.

Amanda: Ok. What are you two talking about?

Sam: I told you what we're talking about -- the food.

Mac: Yeah.

Sam: Yeah, it's good stuff. Come on, Julie Annís waiting. Can't keep her waiting. Let's go. Thanks, Mac.

Rachel: What? What were you guys talking about?

Mac: Nothing.

Rachel: You're holding out on me.

Mac: I know.

[Alli cries]

Rachel: Oops, I think we've forgotten somebody's feeding. I'm going to get Amanda.

Mac: All right.

Rachel: Darling, the baby. It's time to feed her. We've forgotten.

Mac: Ah -- Sam was right.

Mac: Oh, my --

Maid: Wait a minute, you can't come barging in here like this!

Man: Don't worry, the Cory's will love it!

Maid: I'm sorry -- Mrs. Cory -- this is a private family function!

Man: That's not what I heard. Start shooting.

Rachel: Mac?

Man: Get a picture of the daughter. What's her name? It's --

Mac: It's all right, everybody. All right, everything's fine. These gentlemen were just leaving. If you two aren't out of here in five seconds, you will never work in the newspaper business in this town again. Out!

Rachel: Sam --

Sam: Hmm?

Rachel: Start the party up again. Mac, why were those reporters here? Who sent them?

Sam: It's ok, guys. Let's have some more food.

Mac: I don't know.

Rachel: Why did they want a picture of Amanda?

Mac: I just don't know, Rachel.

Rachel: Mac!

Mac: We'll talk about it later, all right? Not now.

[Alli cries]

Mac: What did he do to you?

John: They're sending someone over right away.

Chris: All right. You know, this is a first for me. I've never been thrown out before.

John: Well, you said you wanted to leave several times.

Chris: I do care about you, John.

John: Yeah?

Chris: I'm just not ready. I can't get involved right now. I can't handle it.

[Car horn beeps]

John: It's a good thing because your cab is here.

Chris: I was hoping we could be like friends.

John: Well, apparently, we can't.

Chris: I wasn't playing games with you.

John: Maybe you ought to figure out just what it is you want.

Chris: I'm not sure I know.

John: That doesn't sound like you.

Chris: Well, maybe you don't know me. You certainly don't know me as well as you think you do.

[Car horn beeps]

John: No, maybe I don't!

Chris: I've got something to tell you, and it's important.

John: I'm listening.

Kevin: You can't follow me around all day. And, no, Iím not stoned.

Matt: Ok, would you just calm down?

Kevin: Your sister's party is going on inside.

Matt: Ok, well, this is more important. Out here.

Kevin: No, it's not!

Matt: You're my best friend!

Kevin: Just forget about me, all right? Forget you ever knew me.

Matt: No, I can't!

Kevin: Yes, you can, because you never really did know me. Don't you understand? Don't you realize how much of the time I was stoned up at school? Most of it.

Matt: No. No!

Kevin: It's true. It's the only time I feel like somebody.

Matt: Kevin --

Kevin: When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I think about is how Iím going to score.

Matt: I know that! Don't you think I know that? But you stopped.

Kevin: I wanted to think I could.

Matt: You can!

Kevin: No. I just -- I got to get through the next exam or the next visit from my father or whatever's got me scared, and then Iíll quit.

Matt: Everything was fine until your father showed up.

Kevin: I don't know.

Matt: I do!

Kevin: Don't you get it? When I saw my father, I knew it was going to start again. I -- I was just going to go back to being myself again.

Matt: No!

Josie: There you are. Kevin, hi.

Matt: Listen, we've got to help him.

Kevin: Yeah, he's all messed up again, right? Well, if you two would just leave me alone, then I can go take care of myself.

Matt: No, no. You're not getting high again.

Kevin: Shut up!

Josie: Kevin, you almost killed yourself.

Kevin: I don't care. Don't you understand that? It doesn't matter!

Josie: It does matter!

Matt: It matters to us, and we are going to get you some help.

Kevin: I don't want help.

Matt: Ok, don't leave him. I'm going to go inside for a minute.

Josie: What are you going to do?

Matt: Well, we can't handle him by ourselves. I'm going to talk to Jamie.

Josie: Come on, Kevin. Come on, let's go for a walk. Come on.

Kevin: We're going to get wet.

Josie: I don't care. Come on.

Liz: A reporter in this room? I can't believe it!

Rachel: Well, they have to be aggressive, Liz. It's just I don't see the story in a christening.

Matt: Where's Amanda?

Rachel: She's upstairs with her baby, darling, putting her down for a nap.

Liz: Oh, I hope she comes down soon. I want to see all the beautiful presents the baby's received.

Matt: Have you guys seen Jamie?

Rachel: Oh, there you are, Matthew. Where have you been?

Matt: Where's Jamie?

Liz: Well, he and Lisa are down by the gazebo.

Rachel: I thought they were on the terrace.

Matt: Well, I'm going to go look around.

Rachel: Matthew?

Sam: Amanda made me promise to tell her, Mac.

Mac: What?

Sam: Mac, we'd better tell her or she's going to kill me.

Ooh --

Rachel: Tell her what? Here she is.

Sam: Let's tell her now. She's --

Liz: Amanda, dear!

Amanda: All right, you two, come clean.

Liz: Oh, no -- first you have to open all the presents!

Sam: Presents -- that's a good idea. Presents.

Liz: I want to see the loot. Everybody, come on in here, and bring your presents! We're going to open the presents right now.

Rachel: There are an awful lot of undercurrents at this party.

Mac: What undercurrents?

Rachel: Don't you play ignorant with me.

Mac: Rachel, everything's going great, isn't it? Get them to open the presents. I'll be right there.

Rachel: Where are you going?

Mac: I want to make sure there's more champagne on ice.

Liz: Champagne? Mac, we don't need champagne. I checked on that myself. Mac! Mac, what are you doing?

Mac: Oh, there was a -- another present was out here. It was a big, beautiful box.

Liz: Oh, don't worry about that one.

Mac: What?

Liz: Well, I didn't leave it out here. Anybody could take it just walking by.

Mac: Well, where is it?

Liz: Well, I put it in with the others. Amanda's opening them now.

Mac: Oh, no!

Liz: Yes.

Sam: All right, that one.

Rachel: Open the blue one, sweetie.

Sam: The blue one.

Amanda: All right, yeah.

Liz: Mac?

Sam: All right!

Amanda: Hey, Liz, I love it!

Liz: I just hope it fits her when winter comes.

Amanda: I just can't picture her ever being big enough to fit into this.

Rachel: I used to say the same thing about you. Open this one.

Amanda: Ok.

Matt: Dad, have you seen Jamie around?

Mac: What?

Matt: Have you seen Jamie? Oh, great. Thanks a lot.

Jamie: You think she'll like that, huh?

Matt: Jamie.

Jamie: Hi, Matt.

Matt: Can I talk to you for a minute, alone?

Jamie: What seems to be the problem?

Matt: It's Kevin.

Jamie: Kevin? How's he doing?

Matt: Not that good now. He's got a real bad problem, and it's been going on longer than he said.

Jamie: Where is he?

Matt: He's outside with Josie.

Jamie: Is he high now?

Matt: No, but he's not in very good shape. I can't understand it. He was all right before his dad came to town, and now he won't even listen to me.

Jamie: He's not going to do this by himself. Do you think Kevin would enter a drug treatment program if I could get him into one today?

Matt: I don't know.

Jamie: There's a hospital in Madison with a good program. Someone will have to drive him there.

Matt: Well, I will. I'll drive him.

Jamie: I don't know, Matthew. If he's as strung-out as you say he is, then he might not be too cooperative.

Matt: Josie will go with me.

Jamie: I don't like it.

Matt: Why?

Jamie: Two young kids with an addict?

Matt: He's not an addict.

Jamie: Matthew, yes, he is. He has to face that fact and so do you. I'll drive him.

Matt: No. Listen to me -- now, he hardly knows you. I think he still trusts me. And if you're there, he won't go. Just let Josie and me take him. Please.

Jamie: I'll make the phone call, and then we'll talk to Kevin.

Matt: Ok, great. Thanks.

Josie: Matt?

Matt: I thought you guys were outside.

Josie: No, I calmed him down. I took him up to your room.

Matt: Ok, good. Did he tell you anything?

Josie: No.

Matt: Well, he stole this from the house today, and when I found him, he was going to go out and sell it.

Josie: To buy drugs.

Matt: I talked to Jamie. He's going to try to get him into a drug treatment program today.

Josie: Here in town?

Matt: No, Madison. I'm going to drive him there.

Josie: Well, I'll go with you.

Matt: That would be great, but what about your mom?

Josie: She'd probably throw a fit if she knew.

Matt: Well, maybe you shouldn't go.

Josie: No. No, listen, he's my friend, too, and I want to help. I mean, she's got to stop telling me what to do all the time.

Matt: Ok.

Josie: Does Kevin know about this yet?

Matt: I don't think Kevin --

Kevin: No, he doesn't.

Matt: Kevin. Hey.

Kevin: I guess you talked to your brother, huh?

Matt: Yeah.

Kevin: What did he say?

Matt: He's going to try to get you into a program.

Kevin: A program?

Matt: Yeah, in a hospital, man. Don't worry about it. It's in Madison.

Josie: They're going to help you.

Kevin: Maybe I just don't want any help.

Matt: Hey -- I can't believe that. Now, you don't have to take drugs to be somebody.

Kevin: Don't be so self-righteous with me, Matt. Don't try to understand something you don't even know anything about.

Matt: Well, one thing I do know is that you're my best friend, and that if you don't do something about this problem soon, you're going to end up dead.

Jamie: It's all set up, Kevin. The rest is up to you.

Kevin: So, if I go, then I can't leave, right?

Jamie: There's a mandatory stay at the beginning. After that, it's up to you. Listen, I'll be inside. You can make up your mind.

Kevin: How am I going to get up to Madison?

Matt: We're going to drive you up.

Kevin: I just don't know if Iím ready for this.

Josie: Are you ready to steal from the Coryís and go buy drugs?

Kevin: Why did you tell her?

Josie: Because he cares about what happens to you. He doesn't want to see you live like this.

Kevin: Maybe I just don't want to live.

Josie: That's not true, and you know it. You almost overdosed, and I saw you fight your way back. I know you want to live. And Matt and I are here to help you.

Matt: Please, Kevin. Do it.

Amanda: Everybody, could I have your attention really quick? While I have a chance, I just want to thank you all. I love everything.

Sam: Alexandra is very lucky, and we both are very lucky to have such good friends.

Amanda: Yes.

Sam: And such great loot! Yeah!

Amanda: Now you can tell me what you and my dad were talking about.

Sam: No, I am not going to tell you until your dad's here, ok? No.

Amanda: Speaking of that, where is he?

Jamie: Excuse me.

Lisa: So, what did Matthew want?

Jamie: His friend Kevin is in trouble.

Lisa: Did you help him?

Jamie: I don't know. I tried. What's wrong?

Lisa: I was kind of hoping she'd left.

Julie Ann: You sang so beautifully at the christening.

Ronnie: Oh, thanks, Julie Ann.

Julie Ann: I just wish Zack had been there to see you.

Ronnie: You know, is he really out of town on business?

Julie Ann: Yeah, why?

Ronnie: Nothing. I just thought maybe he had gone away with Courtney or something.

Julie Ann: No, Courtney and he are just friends. They've gone out a couple of times, but that's it.

Ronnie: Well, good for them.

Julie Ann: What Iím trying to say is I like Courtney, but you're more my brother's type.

Ronnie: I don't know where you got that idea.

Julie Ann: You and I are a team, ok?

Ronnie: I don't think Zack would appreciate this conversation.

Julie Ann: He likes you. Come on, you know that.

Ronnie: Oh, Julie Ann, really.

Julie Ann: And you like him. Admit it. Uh-oh.

Ronnie: What's wrong?

Julie Ann: Vicky Hudson looks -- she doesn't look too good. She looks sick.

Ronnie: Well --

Julie Ann: I wonder if she's been drinking.

Ronnie: Look, I'm going to go find out. Hi, Vicky.

Vicky: Oh, hi.

Ronnie: You don't look like you feel too good.

Vicky: Oh, I was just walking outside until it started to rain.

Ronnie: Well, not even the rain could spoil this party.

Vicky: No. No, I guess not.

Ronnie: Oh, look at them. They look so happy.

Vicky: Yeah, Sam and Amanda are great.

Ronnie: You know, you should have seen them when that baby was born.

Vicky: Yeah, you were there, weren't you?

Ronnie: Yeah, I was. You know, I can't believe they give me a paycheck for doing what I do.

Vicky: Well, you must have some pretty crazy hours.

Ronnie: Oh, I don't mind that. You know, I love putting the parents through their Lamaze sessions. I mean, they're, like, so nervous when they first start, but by the time that baby comes, it's totally different.

Vicky: You know what? Would you excuse me? I've just got to get some air.

Ronnie: Yeah, sure.

Vicky: Thanks.

Julie Ann: So, is she all right?

Ronnie: I don't know. But she's not drunk.

Amanda: I'm sorry you have to leave so soon. Thank you for the silver baby spoon. That was so nice.

Woman: Oh, I hope she loves it.

Amanda: Oh, she will. Thanks.

Woman: It was a beautiful christening.

Amanda: Oh, thank you. Be careful.

Lisa: That's so cute.

Liz: What do you think you're doing, miss?

Amanda: I'm helping.

Liz: Oh, no. This is your day and Samís day and Alli's day. Now, scoot.

Lisa: Where is Sam?

Amanda: He's upstairs, I think, checking on the baby.

Lisa: Oh.

Amanda: Mom --

Rachel: Yes, darling?

Amanda: Thanks so much for everything.

Rachel: Oh, it was a wonderful day, wasn't it? Wasn't the baby cute?

Amanda: Oh, she was great.

Rachel: Oh, darling, there you are. Where have you been? I hope you're not going to tell me it was business.

Mac: I'm sorry, that's what it was.

Rachel: Well, everybody said it was a lovely party and said to say goodbye.

Mac: Good. Thank you.

Rachel: Where -- where is Jamie? Or Matthew?

Lisa: I think Jamie went to talk to Matthew.

Rachel: You know, I can't seem to hold my family together. All right --

Amanda: Daddy, I just wanted to thank you for everything, too. It was great.

Mac: You're welcome, sweetheart.

Amanda: I brought you something.

Mac: You did?

Amanda: Mm-hmm. But I'm not going to give it to you until you tell me what you and Sam were talking about today.

Mac: Oh, look, I think I'd rather let Sam tell you all about that.

Amanda: You're terrible! I'll give it to you anyway. Come on.

Mac: "To the best granddad and the best dad in the world."

Amanda: Sam took it. I thought maybe you could put it in a frame and put it on your desk. Do you like it?

Mac: Did I ever tell you how much I love you?

Amanda: Oh, lots of times.

Mac: Well, it's still true.

Amanda: I know Iíve caused you and mom a lot of problems.

Mac: I hope you also know that there's nothing you can't tell us.

Amanda: I know that.

Mac: Listen, Amanda, if there's any problem at all, you can still come to us. I mean, you may be married and you may have a baby, but you're still our daughter.

Amanda: Really, dad, everything's great.

Amanda: Where are you going?

Mac: I -- I got something to take care of. Tell your mother Iíll be right back, ok?

Amanda: Ok.

Liz: Something is bothering Mac today. I wonder where he's going.

Lisa: I wonder where Jamie is.

Mac: Oh, hi, Jamie.

Jamie: Hi, Mac.

Mac: See you later.

Jamie: Mac, you're going to need this. Take this here.

Mac: Oh, thank you.

Jamie: Sure. Vicky.

Vicky: Hi.

Jamie: I didn't know you were still here.

Vicky: Oh, I just went upstairs to dry off a bit.

Lisa: There you are. Hi.

Vicky: Hi.

Lisa: That was a beautiful afghan you gave the baby.

Vicky: Thank you. I think I'm going to go say goodbye to Sam and Amanda.

Liz: Lisa, you still haven't shown it to me!

Lisa: What?

Liz: Your ring, of course, my dear.

Lisa: Oh.

Liz: Oh, that's an antique. Oh, that's beautiful. Oh, I hope you're both very happy.

Sam: You looked really beautiful today.

Amanda: This is incredible.

Sam: What?

Amanda: I've been getting compliments all day, and all I did was have a baby.

Sam: Somebody else giving you compliments?

Amanda: Uh-huh.

Sam: Who?

Amanda: My father.

Sam: Oh. Well, that's ok.

Amanda: I'm really glad we went up together to check on Alli. She's so beautiful.

Sam: Yeah, she is beautiful. I could sit there and look at her for hours. I'm so happy.

Amanda: So am I. Except for one thing.

Sam: What?

Amanda: You still didn't tell me what you and my father were talking about.

Sam: Well, I was going to, but Mac wanted to make an announcement, so I guess --

Amanda: So tell me now!

Sam: Ok. Do you remember that I was thinking about a job?

Amanda: Yeah, I know.

Sam: Ok. I kind of decided it was stupid for me to quit my job at "Brava."

Amanda: Really?

Sam: Yeah. So I asked your father for my old job back.

Amanda: And he said yes?

Sam: No. No, he gave me a promotion.

Amanda: I can't believe it!

Sam: True.

Amanda: Oh, Sam, everything is going to be perfect now. I just know it.

Chris: Lunch was delicious. Thanks.

John: I was worried that the sandwiches would go to waste.

Chris: So, now I guess I have to talk, huh?

John: No, you don't have to do anything.

Chris: Oh, John -- look, I know I act like I can handle everything and I'm real tough and -- and nothing ever hurts me, but --

John: But someone did?

Chris: You figured it out, huh?

John: Didn't take much figuring.

Chris: Well, the thing is it didn't happen very long ago.

John: I see.

Chris: I haven't really been able to talk to anybody else about him.

John: How long were you together?

Chris: Oh, long enough to think that everything was perfect.

John: Nothing's ever perfect.

Chris: The day he walked out the door, something inside me froze. I just sat there. I kept saying to myself, "he's going to come back. He's going to come back, and then Iíll know what to do. I'll know what to say. I'll be able to move again." I couldn't even cry for three days, and then I just couldn't stop crying.

John: I know what you mean.

Chris: You do?

John: Yeah. I wanted the same woman for 20 years, even after she was married to someone else. So, yeah, I know.

Chris: Oh. What I had with this guy -- I thought it was perfect. I guess it couldn't have been. I guess it wasnít. And so I wanted to -- what I wanted to tell you is it's me I don't trust. It's not you. You see, if that relationship didn't work and I thought it was so perfect, then why should I even bother to try with another one?

John: I'm sorry I came on so strong.

Chris: Well, the truth is I didn't tell you not to at first.

John: And I'm sorry I yelled at you.

Chris: That's ok. I'm used to that. Oh, this was really dumb.

John: What was?

Chris: Not talking to you. I should have known that it would be easy to talk to someone like you.

John: Listen, I've got an idea.

Chris: What?

John: Why don't we try to take it easy on each other? I promise not to push if you'll promise to at least try not to be so scared. Deal?

Chris: Deal. Oh.

Rachel: Why is Matthew taking Kevin to Madison?

Jamie: There's a doctor up there that I want him to see.

Rachel: Today?

Jamie: Yeah, I thought it was a good idea.

Rachel: I can't believe you agreed to let Matthew go on this trip in all this rain without asking me first.

Jamie: Mom, he wanted to do it, and he won't have any trouble in his jeep.

Rachel: What's wrong with Kevin? You can't tell me, can you?

Lisa: Rachel, did we tell you that we found a house that we love?

Rachel: Yes, you did. That's wonderful. When will Matthew be back?

Jamie: Tonight.

Rachel: He better be.

Jamie: I think we'll be going now. We have to say goodbye to the rest.

Rachel: All right.

Amanda: I have to thank you for that afghan. Really, it was so beautiful.

Vicky: Oh, well, I'm glad you liked it.

Amanda: I loved it.

Lisa: No.

Jamie: Lisa?

Amanda: It'll look great in her room, too.

Lisa: It can't be.

Jamie: What's the matter?

Lisa: Let's just go, ok?

Drew: And if you talk to the board members, say, 4:00 tomorrow, there should be something to report.

Mac: Hang up the phone!

Drew: I'll call you back.

Mac: What's the meaning of this?

Drew: I think it's self-explanatory.

Mac: I underestimated you. I thought you'd confine your disgusting tactics to the business world.

Drew: Looks like your daughter didn't find them too disgusting.

Mac: I know a setup when I see one!

Drew: Did you talk to her, Mac?

Mac: I don't need to talk to Amanda! I'm talking to you! If any more of this filth appears anywhere, you'll rue the day you were born!

[Thunder]

Matt: Oh, wait a minute, was that the exit?

Josie: I don't know! I can't see! Wait, was it exit 32?

Matt: I don't know. I got to pull over. I can't -- got to get off here.

[Tires screech]

Josie: Matthew, watch out!
