Rachel: You are to leave my daughter alone, Mr. Marsten. If you do not, I will ruin your life. That's a promise.

Drew: You'll ruin me? Oh, please, Mrs. Cory. Aren't you being a little bit dramatic?

Rachel: Don't underestimate me or my family, Mr. Marsten.

Drew: On the contrary, I think I've gauged the Cory temperament quite well. You and your husband love your daughter. That's why Iím going to get what I want.

Rachel: I wouldn't be so confident about the future if I were you, Mr. Marsten. And as for my daughter, you stay away from her or you will regret it. Is that clear?

Drew: About Amanda -- it's amazing how much your daughter takes after you, and all of it's very attractive.

Jake: Marley.

Marley: Hello, Jake.

Jake: I can't believe it's you. I mean, you got your hair cut. I didn't know you were going to come.

Marley: I just made my reservations this morning.

Jake: What made you decide to come back?

Marley: Well, I came to see Vicky, but obviously I am not the only one that's seeing her.

Lisa: Pregnant?

Vicky: Yeah.

Lisa: You tried this trick already. It didn't work.

Vicky: This isn't a trick! This is a fact -- filled with irony, but definitely a fact.

Lisa: You can't lie to me. I've seen it before.

Vicky: What is it? Is it proof that you want? Want to talk to my doctor?

Lisa: You're lying!

Vicky: No.

Lisa: You're making the whole thing up.

Vicky: No.

Lisa: It can't be true.

Vicky: Most certainly can be, Lisa. Or have you forgotten how babies are made?

Lisa: You're lying.

Vicky: Do you want to see test results?

Lisa: They're fake.

Vicky: Ok, fine. Just wait until I start showing, ok? By my calculations, that should be --

Lisa: Stop it!

Lisa: You are pregnant.

Vicky: Yes. I am.

Vicky: Now, we have a lot to talk about, don't we?

Donna: I'm sorry. I overreacted. I know that somehow we'll just get through this together, ok?

Michael: It's all right, honey. It's ok. I want you to remember here -- nothing about not being able to keep Mikey on a temporary basis or not being able to adopt him is final.

Donna: I know. It's -- it's just that we had made the decision to adopt him, and then Mary shows up. Some incredible timing, huh?

Michael: Now, keep in mind Mary is sympathetic to our case.

Donna: I know, but the child welfare authority is not. I mean, you remember how quickly they reacted when they were going to take him away from Victoria.

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Donna: Michael, they could do the same thing here.

Michael: Donna, losing Mikey is not a foregone conclusion. We're going to fight the state with every legal means that we have.

Donna: The state.

Michael: Which reminds me, I got to call Zack right now. We got to start preparing our legal maneuvers.

Donna: Uh, no, Michael, wait. Wait a minute.

Michael: What?

Donna: I have an idea. Why don't we just take a vacation?

Michael: A vacation?

Donna: Yes. I mean, we could just -- I don't know -- go away. You've been saying that you wanted to do a complete tour of Italy. We could just leave all our problems behind for a while.

Michael: Donna -- come on, that's impossible.

Donna: No, it's not. We could just call our travel agent and have him deliver three open-ended tickets.

Michael: Three tickets?

Donna: Yes. We'll take Mikey and get away from here.

Sam: Mac, I should have some design ideas cranked out for you by this afternoon.

Mac: Wonderful.

Sam: Yeah. And in a couple of days -- except for my new titles -- things should be back as the way they were, just the same.

Mac: Well, not quite the same.

Sam: Oh, well, I wasn't married to your daughter then.

Mac: No, I wasn't thinking of that.

Sam: Oh, the takeover attempt?

Mac: Yeah, among other things.

Sam: Look, Mac, I can't say enough how sorry I am about Drew. Look, I was stupid to get involved with the guy.

Mac: Sam, that was not your fault. Drew is sleazy, but it's clever sleaze. He just tricked you, that's all.

Sam: Yeah. So, tell me, what's your strategy for fighting off his takeover attempt?

Mac: Oh, that?

Sam: Yeah.

Mac: Well, the magazine is involved in various financial maneuvers. I mean, to explain it would be too tedious, bore you.

Sam: No, it wouldn't, Mac. Look, "Brava" is very important to me. Come on, I need to know what's going on.

Mac: Sam, stay out of it! I'm sorry, Iím sorry. I just don't seem to be able to talk calmly about the takeover to anyone. I'm so on edge. I hope you understand.

Sam: Yeah, I understand. It's ok.

[Knock on door]

Sam: Excuse me for a second. Can I help you?

Mac: Oh, Sam, this is Holly Etherton, your runner.

Lisa: You hit low, don't you?

Vicky: Lisa, this pregnancy isn't some kind of attack.

Lisa: Of course it is. It's the most vicious kind of attack. But then hurting people is your trademark.

Vicky: Lisa, I've done some pretty underhanded things when it comes to Jamie. But you're not so innocent yourself, now, are you?

Lisa: I would never do the things you've done.

Vicky: Oh, no? What about the time that you canceled my reservation, stole my seat, so you could go to Palm Beach and seduce Jamie? Or the many times that you flaunted your relationship in front of the entire frame family and myself just to make me feel embarrassed and left out? Now, those things aren't so sweet and so decent, now, are they? Now, we've both gotten pretty low when it comes to Jamie, and I don't think I should be the only one that's dragged through the dirt.

Lisa: Does any of that really compare to your lies?

Vicky: A lie is a lie.

Lisa: You told Jamie you were pregnant when you weren't! And now here you are.

Vicky: And we can't do a thing about it, now, can we?

Lisa: Everything you do is manipulation. There is nothing real or kind or --

Vicky: Oh, so you're the good one and I'm just the bad one, is that it? Fine, Lisa, I'll be the bad one if that's what makes you feel better. But Jamie didn't seem to mind how I was. As a matter of fact, how I was is why Jamie wanted me.

Lisa: It's what drove him away. He dropped you, and you know he wants nothing to do with you.

Vicky: I did some pretty awful things to get Jamie, and I can't be sorrier for them than I already am. But what we had was real. You can't fake that.

Lisa: Stop it!

Vicky: He wanted me, Lisa. That was the problem from the first time we all three became friends. He wanted me, to touch me.

Lisa: No!

Vicky: Yes. And when we made love, we were as close as two people can be. For hours, Jamie couldn't get enough of me. Did you hear me? He didn't want you, Lisa. He wanted me.

Vicky: Very nice, Lisa. Tell me, is this the way you always treat pregnant women?

Lisa: Get out!

Vicky: What is it, the truth about Jamie and me that you can't handle?

Lisa: The truth is Jamie doesn't love you and he never did.

Vicky: No. When we were together, Jamie loved me.

Lisa: No, that wasn't love. That was confusion and bad judgment, but never love.

Vicky: Well, I don't think you know the way that Jamie feels.

Lisa: I think I do! I was with him a long time before you came into the picture, and Iíll be with him a long time after you're gone.

Vicky: Yeah, well, I wouldn't be so sure about that. Jamie is a warm, sensitive man, and he cares about what I feel and what I think. Even though he may be very angry with me right now, he still cares a lot about me. And you know he'll care even more when he realizes that I am carrying his baby.

Lisa: And you think you can take Jamie away from me with that?

Vicky: No, hold on, Lisa. I don't think I'm taking him away. You know, frankly, I don't even know if I want Jamie anymore. Oh, I love him, but I don't think I would want him in my life until I know for sure that you're out of the picture for good.

Lisa: Well, that won't happen.

Vicky: I'm afraid you're right.

Lisa: Then give it up. Leave us alone.

Vicky: All right. Jamie's chosen you. I have to accept that. I have to accept that you two are going to spend the rest of your lives together. But that doesn't mean that my child has to go fatherless.

Lisa: What are you talking about?

Vicky: My baby has a right to know and love his father, just like Jamie has the right to know and love his child. Now, I don't think that you would want to stand in the way of that, now, would you?

Lisa: Jamie will never fall for it. He'll know you're trying to trap him.

Vicky: He's as responsible for this child's future as I am, Lisa. He's going to want to be a part of the baby's upbringing.

Lisa: Maybe. But how do you think your baby's going to feel, Vicky, knowing he only exists so you could get what you want?

Vicky: That is not true.

Lisa: Of course it is. You're using this baby as a weapon to get Jamie back. What kind of life is that for your child? How can you think you can ever be happy when all you do is destroy the happiness of everyone around you?

Holly: And if you do need any special art supplies, just give me a ring and I'll fill out the appropriate forms.

Sam: Thanks, I will. Well, I guess that about covers it.

Mac: Thank you, holly.

Holly: Buzz if you need me.

Sam: Yes, I will. She seems very efficient.

Mac: She came highly recommended.

Sam: Yeah. I'm sure she'll work out just fine. That's another thing that's going to be different around here. Amanda and I won't be working together. I miss her already.

Mac: I still do.

Sam: Ah, come on. You gained a granddaughter.

Mac: Right, right.

Sam: Hey, you know, with Josie taking care of the baby, Iím sure Amanda could come back and work part-time. I know nothing would make her happier than working with her family again.

Mac: Well, let's not rush it.

Sam: Oh, Mac, I don't think Iím rushing it. She'd come back and work a couple of days a week. I know I wouldn't mind it. Besides, I think she needs to be back where she belongs.

Mac: Don't you have a layout meeting?

Sam: Yeah. Aren't you coming?

Mac: No, no, I've got some other things to take care of.

Sam: Ok. Look, I'll take some notes and fill you in on what happens.

Mac: Good. Thank you.

Sam: Yeah. I'll see you later.

Mac: Right.

Jake: Marley? Where you going, huh? Wait, wait, wait.

Marley: I am leaving. So if you'll please excuse me --

Jake: You -- you told me to go put on some clothes so we could talk.

Marley: I know, but I've changed my mind. I'm going to see my parents.

Jake: Why?

Marley: Because I came here to speak with Vicky, not to see you the way you were.

Jake: There is nothing going on with Vicky and myself. Marley, she's not even here.

Marley: Yes, but, Jake, you had your clothes off.

Jake: Because I took a shower. I finished putting the shelves together, I took a shower.

Marley: I see.

Jake: Marley, Vickyís been a very good friend to me -- that's it, just a friend. You must know that. She said you guys have been talking on the phone.

Marley: Yes, we have talked.

Jake: What did she say?

Marley: She told me and tried to convince me to give our marriage another chance.

Jake: Is that -- is that why I haven't got the divorce papers?

Marley: No, Jake, I didn't come here to talk about our divorce. I came here to speak to my sister.

Jake: But, Marley, we're here together. You can't just -- you can't just leave. I mean, there are so many things I have to say to you.

Marley: What is it you would like to say?

Jake: Marley, I -- I can't stop thinking about you.

Marley: Oh, Jake.

Jake: It's the truth. I mean, I have tried to go on in business, I have tried to accept the divorce, but I canít. I keep thinking about the stupid mistake I made in California! Hell, I'd give anything if Iíd never met that woman!

Marley: Jake, I don't want to talk about your regrets. We all have them about a lot of things, but we cannot change history.

Jake: Are you talking about our marriage?

Marley: I'm talking about life.

Jake: Marley, did something else happen? I mean, is there something you're not telling me?

Michael: Donna, wait a minute. We can't just pick up and leave Bay City.

Donna: Yes, we can. We can go tonight, if we want, to Europe -- you, me, Mikey -- the Caribbean. Anywhere as long as it's away from here.

Michael: Donna, this is called kidnapping.

Donna: Well, then we'll just find someplace that there's no extradition. I mean, Michael, with all your money, we could live anywhere.

Michael: Donna, Iím not going to live my life as a fugitive!

Donna: Well, what about us? I don't want to lose Mikey!

Michael: Honey, haven't you been listening? I was just about to call Zack. We will fight any attempt to take Mikey from us.

Donna: Look, I know all about legal maneuvers. Mary McKinnon would not have come over here and talked to us unless she thought that the child welfare authority had a good, strong case against us.

Michael: Donna, at least Mary didn't lie to us. Face the facts -- we might lose Mikey.

Donna: I know. I -- I can't handle that, Michael. I thought I could, but I can't.

Michael: Donna, we've been through a lot together, and we will get through this together. I promise you.

Donna: Is that going to be your answer -- just keep a stiff upper lip and hope for the best?

Michael: Yes.

Donna: I can't do that, Michael, not again. I canít.

Michael: Donna, you have to! I mean, that's the only way. That's what we have to do.

Donna: Oh, right, that's the only way. Every time something horrible has happened in my life, I've had to accept it because it's the only way. You know, I had to pretend that Marley was my sister. I didn't even know Victoria existed, and I never even knew what happened to you.

Michael: Donna, I am here now, your daughters are here now.

Donna: But what about our son? Losing him was the hardest thing I ever had to face, and that wasn't so long ago. You know, I never thought I'd be able to look at another child again, and then you brought Mikey into our home.

Michael: Oh, come on, Donna. Don't get yourself all upset here, please.

Donna: You know, you promised me that it was only going to be temporary, that we were doing it for Victoriaís sake and that he wouldn't become a part of our lives. And I did, I believed you. And we brought him in here, and I fell so completely in love with him.

Michael: We all fell in love with him.

Donna: Yeah, and now we're going to lose him. Just like we lost our son and just like I have lost so many other things. I shouldn't have trusted you, Michael.

Michael: Donna, please.

Donna: No. You know, you always promise me that you're going to protect me and take care of me. But I always seem to end up getting hurt.

Michael: Hey, come on, don't talk like this.

Donna: I wish -- I wish I had stopped you when you wanted to bring him into this house.

Mac: Amanda was that upset?

Rachel: She was frantic. All she wanted was a showdown with Drew.

Mac: That would've been disaster.

Rachel: I know, so I convinced her to stay home with Alli.

Mac: Thank goodness.

Rachel: Yeah, but then I went and did something not very bright.

Mac: What?

Rachel: I went over to see Drew.

Mac: Oh, Rachel.

Rachel: I know, Mac, but I couldn't help it. He attacked Amanda. I had to do something. I couldn't let him get away with it. So I went over there and I told him what I thought of him and I threatened him. I hate that man's tactics, Mac.

Mac: I know. On the one hand, that was very foolhardy. You know what he did with Amanda. I mean, he could've taped your conversation, manipulated the tape, twisted everything you said.

Rachel: I know.

Mac: On the other hand, as your husband and Amandaís father, I really admire your guts.

Rachel: I'm not sure it did any good. He just laughed in my face.

Mac: Well, he holds all the cards, and he knows it.

Rachel: Where's Sam?

Mac: Layout meeting.

Rachel: How's he feeling?

Mac: Oh, he's fine, in great spirits, elated to be back to work. Also suggesting that Amanda come back here for part-time work.

Rachel: He has no idea we may lose the company.

Mac: Not yet, because he has no idea about those pictures.

Rachel: Well, that's not up to us to tell him about, Mac. That's up to Amanda.

Mac: I wish she didn't have to. You know his temper.

Rachel: I know. But she's got to tell him. I just wonder when she will.

Vicky: If Jamie and I raise this baby together, this baby would be surrounded by a home with love.

Lisa: "If"? I thought it was a foregone conclusion.

Vicky: Now, that would be jumping to things even a little too quick for me, Lisa. Jamie doesn't know yet.

Lisa: Well, aren't you going to run and tell him?

Vicky: I don't know. Now, what would you do if you were me and I were you? Would you go running to him with the shocking news? Drop a few hints, maybe leave a note? Or just keep it quiet? I mean, that is a possibility. You could just say nothing and have an abortion? Go out of town and leave Jamie and me to start our happy, perfect life together? Are you that self-sacrificing, Lisa? I don't think so.

Lisa: How did you get to be so cruel?

Vicky: Cruel?

Lisa: Remember back when you didn't hate me? How about when you were in the coma?

Vicky: What about it?

Lisa: The hospital wanted to take you off life support. Did you know that? I didn't let them. I knew deep down you wanted to live. Your life was so important that I risked humiliation and Jamieís job to connect with you psychically. I reached you. I sat by your bed every night. And then when you woke up, it was a miracle! A complete recovery. I was so happy. Now I wish Iíd never laid eyes on you. A long time ago we were going to be friends. Then you turned around and stabbed me in the back.

Vicky: I know this -- this might not sound like much, but I never wanted to hurt you, Lisa. I did want to be your friend. Then I fell in love with Jamie. Look, I know it might not seem fair, but life isn't fair. I was brought up thinking that my parents got rid of me because they couldn't stand the sight of me. And then when I found the family that I wanted, I lost Jake to Marley. That loss was so great that I never thought I would feel love like that again until Jamie came into my life. Now I know I did some rotten things that may seem unfair. But I don't think life is fair.

Lisa: Just take what you can get, right?

Vicky: If you have to.

Vicky: Lisa, to my own credit, I tried to do the right thing. I tried to accept that you and Jamie were going to be together. And then I -- I found out I was pregnant. It just happened.

Lisa: You're amazing, Vicky.

Vicky: Thank you. You know, I want you to know that I am not always a taker, Lisa. As matter of fact, Iím going to give you something.

Lisa: Oh, yeah? What?

Vicky: Time.

Lisa: Time?

Vicky: To think. You see, besides my doctor, you are the only one who knows about this baby. So if you want to tell Jamie about it, be my guest. If you want to keep the information to yourself, do that.

Lisa: What are you waiting for?

Vicky: I don't know. I don't know what I want to do yet. Very honestly, I would like to see how you handle this information. When I make my decision --

Lisa: I'm sure Iíll know all about it.

Vicky: Yes, you will.

Vicky: Lisa, while you're mulling over my little secret, there are a few things I want you to keep in mind. This baby is not going to disappear, as much as you may want it to. And neither am I.

Marley: Vicky told me that you are working very hard at your job.

Jake: Yes, but I am not obsessed.

Marley: Good.

Jake: I'm not going to make myself crazy like I did in California because I neglected you in business. If that hadn't happened, we wouldn't have the trouble that we're having right now.

Marley: Jake, we have had this discussion so many times.

Jake: I know, I know, but I don't think I ever told you, Marley, that I finally realized why I was so driven.

Marley: And why were you?

Jake: Because, honey, I wanted to prove to you and your parents and mostly to myself that I was good enough for you.

Marley: Oh, Jake, you were always good enough. You were exactly what I wanted.

Jake: Then why can't we be together?

Marley: Because when you told me that you had an affair with another woman, I felt like my life was pulled from me. I started to tighten all over. I felt so betrayed. I wanted to scream and to hit you. But I couldn't move, I just started to shake.

Jake: I remember. I tried to hold you.

Marley: And then I ran from the room and to the bed and I pulled the comforter over my head, but I just could not stop shaking.

Jake: Marley, please let go of that, please.

Marley: I thought I had. But then I see you again, and instead of feeling strong I feel vulnerable. I'm scared that I'm going to be hurt again, Jake. I'm scared that we're both going to be hurt.

Jake: Come here, come here. Do you feel my heart? It is pounding like that because you're close to me.

Marley: Jake --

Jake: It's the same thing that your heart did whenever we were together, Marley.

Marley: Jake, now, you have to let go.

Jake: No, you have to answer me first.

Drew: Yep, that's right. By Friday afternoon, you will be the owner of Cory publishing. Oh, yeah, quite an experience. No, I have never quite run into a family this obstinate. Nah, it's ok. I know Iím not the most popular guy in town. Don't worry, Iíll be fine. By the way, chief, I need some information on someone. What type? I need all the trash you can find. I need all the information you can get on Rachel Cory.

Mac: So how did the layout meeting go?

Sam: Actually, it was excellent. I've got these notes here for you.

Mac: Oh, good. Fine. I'll look at these later.

Sam: Yeah. Mac? Is something wrong?

Mac: No, no, I just don't want to go over these notes just now.

Sam: No, that's not what I mean. Look, you've been acting kind of strange ever since I got here this morning. Every time I bring up work or family, you clam up. What's up?

Mac: Sorry, Iím just under a lot of stress, Sam.

Sam: Yeah, I know. Look, Mac, I want to help you with this thing with Drew. Come on, we're family. I mean, what happens to "Brava" is important to me.

Mac: There's nothing you can do, Sam.

Sam: Actually, I've already done something. Mitch and I have done something.

Mac: Mitch?

Sam: Mac, I didn't want to tell you this until we had something more concrete, but I think this might help cheer you up.

Mac: What's that?

Sam: Mitch and I -- we've been on to Drew Marsten now for a quite a while. As a matter of fact, we even got into his office and took a look around.

Mac: Oh, no.

Mac: When did you and Mitch get into his office?

Sam: A week ago Friday, I think. Why?

Mac: Oh. Well, what happened?

Sam: Well, we didn't find something we could use against him, but we have an extra key so we can go back in whenever we want to.

Mac: No, absolutely not! You are not to do that!

Sam: Why?

Mac: Well, you could make it worse. What you're doing is illegal, Sam.

Sam: But, Mac, when you're up against Drew Marsten, you don't exactly play by the rules.

Mac: You are not to make that decision. Drew is a dangerous man. I do not want you involved with him. It's bad enough Amanda --

Sam: Amanda? What about Amanda?

Mac: It's bad enough Amanda has to go through this family crisis with a new baby. What she does not need is for you to put yourself in danger.

Sam: I'm sorry, Mac, but I am not going to let Drew get away with what he's done. I've got to help you with this, Mac.

Mac: Please, I beg you, listen to me. I have my own strategy to fight the takeover. I do not want any help from you in any way except to look after Amanda and Alexandra at home.

Sam: Come on, Mac, let me help you!

Mac: Sam, drop it. Please, just drop it.

Vicky: Oh, Jake. I am so glad you're here because I have one of the worst -- Marley.

Marley: Hello, Vicky.

Vicky: Wow. I wasn't expecting you to come home.

Marley: Well, I made a spur-of-the-moment decision, and I seem to have surprised everybody, including myself.

Vicky: Oh?

Jake: I was getting out the shower when Marley came.

Vicky: I see. Well, Jakeís been helping me a lot in the apartment lately.

Marley: That's what I've heard.

Vicky: Jake, the shelves look terrific. Thanks.

Jake: Yeah, it wasn't just me. I mean, you know, Rick did a lot of this work, too.

Marley: Rick?

Jake: Yeah, he's a friend of mine. I mean, he was here all day until he had to leave.

Marley: Well, the shelves look nice.

Vicky: Yeah, they do.

Jake: It's just like old times, the three of us being together like this.

Vicky: Not quite, Jake.

Marley: Jake, I would like to speak with Vicky alone for a while, please.

Jake: That's fine. I -- I have an appointment for a possible gig anyway, so I better get to my house and change my clothes.

Marley: Of course.

Jake: You're not going to leave without saying -- you know, talking to me, are you?

Marley: No. I am not going to leave for a few days at least.

Jake: Bye, Marley.

Marley: Goodbye.

Jake: Bye, Vicky.

Vicky: Jake. So, Mom and dad know you're here?

Marley: No, not yet.

Vicky: Well, then Iíll give them a buzz.

Marley: Victoria, wait. First we need to have a little talk.

Vicky's voice: This baby isn't going to disappear, Lisa. And neither am I. Neither am I.

[Knock on door]

Lisa: Rachel, hi.

Rachel: Hi. I hope Iím not late.

Lisa: For what?

Rachel: To discuss the wedding.

Lisa: Huh? Oh, right. Come on in. I'm sorry.

Rachel: Well, I'm awfully glad we planned this today because if we hadn't planned this, it would've been one of the 10 worst days of my life.

Lisa: Why?

Rachel: Oh, problems. Amanda -- problems.

Lisa: Oh.

Rachel: Anyway, I knew that coming over here and discussing my son's wedding with his beautiful bride would cheer me up.

Lisa: Good.

Rachel: Are you all right?

Lisa: I'm fine.

Rachel: You look a little tired.

Lisa: No, I --

Rachel: We can do this another day if you want.

Lisa: No, no, come on in. I'll make some tea.

Rachel: All right.

Lisa: So, what's wrong with Amanda? Is she sick?

Rachel: No, she was upset about some things. Actually, she was fine by the time I left.

Lisa: Well, that's good.

Rachel: By the time I left, she actually looked like she didn't have a care in the world. She had gone over and picked up the baby and was playing with it. It's amazing what babies -- honey?

Lisa: It's ok. I'm just clumsy.

Rachel: Lisa, you're not all right.

Lisa: No, I'm -- Iím fine.

Rachel: You're shaking. Honey, are you all right? Do you want me to call Jamie?

Lisa: No, no!

Rachel: Listen, I'll tell you what -- why don't you go lie down and Iíll go.

Lisa: No, please don't go. I want to -- I want to talk about the wedding. I -- I need to talk about it now.

Donna: Michael? I'm sorry. I -- I did it again. I didn't mean all those things I said.

Michael: It's all right, Donna.

Donna: No. No, it is not all right. I lashed out at you because I've been so afraid.

Michael: I know that.

Donna: Look --

Michael: What?

Donna: I know Iíve hurt you, too. And I want you to know that I am so very glad that you brought Mikey into this house. It's just that now I just hope that --

Michael: Donna, look -- I love you, I love Mikey, and I'm scared, too. I don't want to lose Mikey. But I promise you, I will fight to keep Mikey with every means I have available. I promise you that. Ok?

Donna: Yeah.

Michael: Ok.

Donna: And in the meantime, we will just take things one day at a time, and we'll keep on loving him and we'll keep on loving each other, hmm?

Michael: Sounds good to me.

Donna: Now, if you don't mind, I think I'm going to take his bunny up to him because he --

Michael: Donna, no! My bunny.

Donna: Oh, I see. Well, do you think this big little boy --

Michael: Ok, ok, ok, ok, ok.

Donna: Would share his --

Michael: Absolutely.

Donna: Good. Thank you.

Michael: Have fun.

Donna: All right.

Michael: Yeah, let me speak to Zack, please. It's Michael Hudson. Zack -- look, I want you to do something for me. Well, this takes priority over everything else. Look, I want you to research the adoption laws of this state, all right? Yeah, the code regulations, the common law -- everything you can find. And then I want you to draw up a petition for the court. Yeah. We're going to find out how much power I really have.

Rachel: What about the wedding, Lisa? Are Felicia and I driving you crazy?

Lisa: Oh, no, no, it's -- it's not that.

Rachel: Well, then what is it?

Lisa: It's Jamie.

Rachel: Are you and Jamie arguing about details?

Lisa: No. Jamie's already told me to just go ahead and do whatever I want.

Rachel: Well, then what is the problem?

Lisa: I -- I don't want Jamie to be disappointed in how anything turns out.

Rachel: Oh, honey, he probably won't even notice half the things that you do unless you point them out to him. And besides, he wants you to be happy. He loves you, Lisa.

Lisa: I know.

Rachel: Are you having second thoughts about the marriage?

Lisa: No. No, Rachel. I -- Iím sure that I want to marry him.

Rachel: Yes, honey, but -- but the last time we talked about this, you said that it was such a big step for you.

Lisa: Well -- no, not for me. Well, yeah, it's a big step, but --

Rachel: Honey, look, I know it's difficult for you to talk to me about this. I'm Jamieís mother, I understand that. But I also understand what you're going through. Marriage is an enormous step. It's forever. Or it's supposed to be. If it's any comfort at all to you, I can't think of a more perfect woman to marry my son than you.

Lisa: You can't?

Rachel: No. You're so different from some of the other women he's been involved with -- like Cecile, and even Vicky. They're too self-involved. They're too immature to make a real commitment to anyone except themselves. You're not like that.

Lisa: Oh, Rachel. I love him so much.

Rachel: Oh, sweetheart.

Lisa: It's just -- it's very important to me to do what's best for Jamie right now.

Vicky: So, what's so important that we need to discuss right away?

Marley: Well, I wanted to find out what has been happening since I left.

Vicky: Lots. Nothing to do with Jake.

Marley: Ok. So how have you been?

Vicky: I've been better.

Marley: Vicky, have you been sick?

Vicky: In a way. But I went to see a doctor, and I'm very healthy.

Marley: Is this because you're upset about Jamie? I know losing him must've hurt so much.

Vicky: Marley, things are such a mess. I don't even know if Iím doing the best thing.

Marley: Well, if it helps any, I know what it feels like to be involved in a breakup and not know what you're feeling.

Vicky: Right.

Marley: So will you tell me about it?

Vicky: Hey, listen, you know, why don't the two of us go to dinner and have fun for a change?

Marley: Ok.

Vicky: Good. I'm going to go get changed. I'll just be a few minutes, ok?

Marley: All right.

[Phone rings]

Marley: I'll get it! Hello?

Man: Ms. Hudson?

Marley: Yes.

Man: This is Dr. Kim. I'm sorry to bother you at home, but you never got back to me. We need to set up a time to discuss your pregnancy.
