[Door closes]

Josie: Matthew! Hi!

Matt: Hi. I hope you don't mind me dropping by like this.

Josie: No, not at all. Whose car is that?

Matt: Oh, that's my momís. Jeep's still in the shop. How's it going?

Josie: Ok.

Matt: Is your mom still mad about the other night?

Josie: Oh, she's getting over it. What about your parents?

Matt: Oh, they have too many other problems to worry about.

Josie: I'm sorry.

Matt: No, just business stuff, but things have been pretty grim around the house.

Josie: Well, I'm glad you came over.

Matt: Yeah. I need to ask you a favor.

Josie: Well, sure.

Matt: I was wondering if you could come over to my house today.

Josie: Really?

Matt: Tracy called.

Josie: Oh.

Matt: She's pretty upset about, you know, Kevin. She doesn't know where he is, and I didn't feel like breaking the news to her over the phone. She's coming over later, and I need your help.

Josie: What can I do?

Matt: Well, could you be there when I tell her about Kevin?

Amanda: Seems like old times. Surprise!

Sam: Amanda, hi.

Amanda: Hi. I just thought that I'd drop by and surprise you your first day at work.

Sam: Holly, this is my wife, Amanda. Amanda, this is my new runner, Holly Atherton.

Amanda: Your runner?

Holly: I was just showing Sam the ropes.

Amanda: Don't you think you have that a little backwards?

Jason: Hi.

Chris: Hey. The guys at the site said you wanted me to come over here.

Jason: Yeah, they're pulling a double today.

Chris: I know, to get ready for the cornerstone ceremony. So what's up?

Jason: I thought we'd get the schedule worked out here, then go out to the site.

Chris: Great.

Jason: Why don't you grab some coffee, pull up a chair?

Chris: I don't need coffee. What's first?

Jason: You didn't mind coming out here, did you?

Chris: No. As a matter of fact, I was glad to. There was something at the site Iíd rather avoid.

Jason: What's that?

John: Jason, I think that we'd better --

Jason: Maybe I should say, who?

Felicia: There you are.

Lisa: Hi.

Felicia: Hi, honey. Listen, you ok? You sounded so upset on the phone.

Lisa: I need to talk to you.

Felicia: Ok, come on, let's talk. Here's a table. Sit down.

Lisa: Um, Felicia, all of this pre-wedding stuff is starting to get to me.

Felicia: Ah. So that's it.

Lisa: I'm serious. Felicia, I don't think I can take a long engagement.

Felicia: Ok. What do you want to do?

Lisa: I want to move the wedding up.

Cass: It's just a business trip. Lots of people go on business trips.

Nicole: Yeah, but they go to Cincinnati or New York. They don't go to the Persian Gulf.

Cass: Come on!

Nicole: Oh, this is not a business trip! It's a reconnaissance mission!

Cass: I can't believe you don't want me to help out Michael and Mac.

Nicole: Help them some other way, but let somebody else go to the Persian Gulf.

Cass: This may come as a great surprise to you, but they happen to need my expertise.

Nicole: Oh, that's great. That's just what I needed to hear.

Cass: What's the big deal?

Nicole: It's dangerous in the Persian Gulf.

Cass: It's dangerous in the shower!

Nicole: Cass, putting you in the middle of a tense political situation is like putting a flamethrower in a tinderbox!

Cass: Oh, that's a gross overreaction.

Nicole: You know, you love these situations! You thrive on them.

Cass: Maybe I do.

Nicole: Cass, I can't stand being worried about you all the time. I -- I can't live like that.

Cass: Well, it seems to me that that's your problem, not mine.

Nicole: Well, your concern for my feelings is overwhelming.

Cass: Well, what do you want me to do? You expect me to open up a hardware store just because we got engaged?

Nicole: Well, maybe that was a mistake.

Cass: What?

Nicole: If you're so intent on making me a widow, maybe we shouldn't get married at all.

Cass: You know, I'm really getting tired of you telling me that we shouldn't get married.

Nicole: I want to marry you more than anything in the world.

Cass: Well, I want to marry you, too.

Nicole: I don't want to have to worry all the time, though.

Cass: Then don't.

Nicole: I just thought that maybe things would be a little calmer now.

Cass: Why should they be?

Nicole: Well, because -- I don't know. Because I want them to be that way, that's why. I'm tired of all these adventures.

Cass: Well, I'm not!

Nicole: Oh, I see. Well, I guess maybe I'm just not exciting enough for you then, huh?

Cass: Oh, whoa, what luck!

Nicole: No, isn't that it?

Cass: Nicole, you are as exciting to me as any other woman in the -- more exciting to me than any other woman in the entire world! But there are things in life that I need that you don't have anything to do with!

Nicole: Oh, like going to the Persian Gulf?

Cass: If you wanted to go to the Persian Gulf, I wouldn't stop you!

Nicole: Oh, no?

Cass: No!

Nicole: Well, I wouldn't do anything that stupid!

Cass: I'm going to get out of here!

Nicole: Oh, yeah? Where are you going?

Cass: Skydiving!

Nicole: Oh, good! Well, I hope you break your -- your Ė

Josie: You want me to be there when you talk to Tracy?

Matt: Yeah. You were there with Kevin. I figure you can help me say the right thing.

Josie: Well, sure. I'd be glad to help.

Matt: Thanks.

Josie: It's just that, well, I'm not exactly Tracyís favorite person in the world.

Matt: Hmm. What makes you say that?

Josie: Well, I guess maybe she knows how I --

Sharlene: Josie, could you run over to Tops and pick up my -- my check?

Matt: Hello, Mrs. Watts.

Sharlene: Matt.

Josie: Sure, mama.

Matt: I just stopped by for a minute. I'll see you later then, ok?

Josie: Right.

Matt: Bye, Mrs. Watts.

Sharlene: Bye. What does he mean, he'll see you later?

Josie: He asked me to come over to his house.

Sharlene: Why?

Josie: He wants me to help explain to Tracy what happened with Kevin.

Sharlene: What, he can't explain things all by himself?

Josie: He needs my help.

Sharlene: I see.

Josie: Mama, what's so wrong with that?

Sharlene: Nothing.

Josie: Can't I even be friends with a boy?

Sharlene: Josie, I see how you look whenever you see him coming. You'd throw your whole life away to do whatever he wanted you to do.

Josie: I would not!

Sharlene: A man isn't going to get you where you want to be. I learned that the hard way.

Josie: Well, do you want me to be alone for the rest of my life?

Sharlene: Of course not. I want you to fall in love, but I want you to wait until you know who you are and how to take care of yourself.

Josie: Maybe I already do and you just don't want to admit it.

Sharlene: Getting your hooks into Matthew Cory isn't taking care of yourself.

Josie: I haven't got my hooks into him. He's never even asked me out!

Sharlene: Just remember, Josie, a Matthew Cory doesn't end up with a Josie Watts. The world just doesn't work that way.

Josie: Well, how do you want me to end up, mama? Like you?

Sharlene: No, baby. That is the last thing I want.

John: Jason, I think we'd better go over the work schedule for today. It looks kind of tight.

Jason: Yeah, well, that's what we're doing right now, John.

John: Oh.

Chris: Listen, why don't you stay here and work with Jason? I've got to get back to the site. There's a lumber order due.

John: No, no, no, I'll do that. You stay here.

Chris: I don't need you telling me what to do.

John: I didn't think I was doing that.

Jason: I am sure that I forgot something upstairs. I'll go up and try to find whatever it was.

John: Think he noticed something was wrong?

Chris: Why should he? There's nothing wrong.

John: Look, Chris, I'm sorry about yesterday.

Chris: Yesterday?

John: Oh, come on. I didn't mean to stand you up.

Chris: Gee! Makes so little difference to me, I guess I forgot all about it.

John: Something came up. I had to leave suddenly.

Chris: Fine.

John: Look, will you please admit that you're mad so that we can clear this up?

Chris: I'm not mad. What you do or do not choose to do makes no difference to me.

John: Well, I may go back out to the site. Maybe I can accomplish something there.

[Door slams]

Jason: John's a great guy.

Chris: Yeah, swell.

Jason: He just doesn't know how to understand and treat women, that's all. Maybe I should counsel him some.

Sam: Yeah, Amanda worked as my runner when we first met.

Holly: How exciting. I'll take this down to mimeo.

Sam: Thanks, holly.

Holly: If there's anything else you need --

Sam: No, I don't think so, not right now.

Amanda: Cute girl.

Sam: Amanda, I didn't hire her, your dad did. She came with the office, ok?

Amanda: I know! Just like the desk and the telephone -- and the chest.

Sam: Amanda Fowler, are you jealous? Is that what I hear?

Amanda: Jealous?

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: Me?

Sam: Yeah, you.

Amanda: Don't be silly! Does she know who I am? Does she know that I can have my father fire her just like that?

Sam: Now, you wouldn't do that. Besides, I know how anxious you are just to be one of the staff here at "Brava."

Amanda: I don't want to seem like that to her. I want her trembling in her size-five shoes, you got it?

Sam: I got it, I got it.

Amanda: Besides, Iím not one of the staff anymore.

Sam: You miss it here, don't you?

Amanda: No, no. I'm still working on my article at home. And I like spending all that time with Alli and waiting for you to come home from work.

Sam: Amanda, listen --

Amanda: I want to come back to work. I want to work here again.

Amanda: Well, what do you think?

Sam: About what? About you working back here?

Amanda: I mean, when you left this morning, I just felt kind of down. That's when I realized that I miss this place.

Sam: Hmm. And here I thought you liked it staying at home, waiting for me to come home.

Amanda: You did?

Sam: Yeah. I don't know. It wouldn't be bad having you working back here again, I guess.

Amanda: It wouldn't?

Sam: No, it could be just like before. You could make my coffee, make the dinner reservations. It'd be fun.

Amanda: I really hate you.

Sam: No, I mean that! I mean, hey, that's what you did before, right?

Amanda: That's because I wanted you more than I wanted a career.

Sam: But those days were fun, weren't they?

Amanda: Fun?

Sam: Yeah, fun.

Amanda: You were a tyrant!

Sam: A tyrant?

Amanda: Yes, you were.

Sam: No. I mean, us getting to know each other, you know, falling in love, stuff like that?

Amanda: Remember when we had a picnic on the floor?

Sam: Yeah. Good idea.

Amanda: What are you doing?

Sam: Finding the phone number of a Mexican takeout place.

Amanda: Oh, Sam!

Sam: What do you think? Does Holly like tacos or enchiladas?

Amanda: I'm not laughing.

Sam: What are you doing? Are you locking out my assistant?

Amanda: She works too hard. And so does her boss.

Sam: Oh, yeah? Hmm. Hmm.

Felicia: Honey, are you sure you're telling me everything?

Lisa: What? I just said I want to move the date of the wedding closer.

Felicia: I know, but that's all it is? You seem -- I don't know, you seem almost desperate, and that's -- that's really not like you.

Lisa: Desperate?

Felicia: Yeah, is there something that -- that I should know? Lisa, you're not pregnant, are you?

Lisa: No. Uh, no, I'm not pregnant. No, I -- I know I must seem kind of flighty today. It's just nerves.

Felicia: Why, darling? Why are you nervous? You said yourself that you and Jamie are very much in love and, I mean, everybody knows it. I mean, when the two of you are around, everybody can see that.

Lisa: That's what I want.

Felicia: Good. Then why are you in a hurry? We'll plan it. It'll be beautiful. Believe me, I'll see to it.

Lisa: What about you and Mitch?

Felicia: What about me and Mitch?

Lisa: Shouldn't you be planning a wedding of your own?

Felicia: Ha, ha. No, I think maybe we ought to do yours first. Besides, you know what kind of wedding you want, and Mitch and I, we're not sure what we want. In fact, Mitch probably wants to get married between holes on the golf course.

Lisa: I don't think so.

Felicia: Want to bet?

Lisa: You make me feel better.

Felicia: Oh, honey, you and Jamie have so much to look forward to.

Lisa: Did I tell you we bought a house?

Felicia: No! You didn't! What do you mean you bought a house?

Lisa: I'm sorry. I forgot with everything that's going on.

Felicia: How could you forget? A house? Well, is it beautiful?

Lisa: It will be. It has a lot to be done to it.

Felicia: Of course, but that's the fun part! A young couple should buy a house, fix it up. You know, that's very romantic.

Lisa: You think everything is romantic.

Felicia: Well, when you're in love, everything is romantic.

Lisa: It sure sounds good to me. But --

Felicia: Honey, Iím afraid there's a problem here. I'll be right back. Don't go away. I want to hear all about the wedding, all right?

Lisa: Ok.

Lisa's voice: Pregnant?

Vicky's voice: 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: It 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. You are pregnant. You are pregnant.

Felicia: Well, if it's not one thing, it's another. I don't know how I do anything else but run this place.

Lisa: What's wrong?

Felicia: Other than 50 people for dinner tomorrow night?

Lisa: Tomorrow?

Felicia: Yes. Apparently, the hospital wants to have its hospice dedication banquet here. They didn't give me much notice, did they?

Lisa: Hmm. Well, I'll let you get to that.

Felicia: No, no, no, no. Now, wait a minute. I want to talk about the wedding.

Lisa: Felicia, I still want it to be closer. I want to move it up. How long would it take to plan it?

Felicia: Well, honey, it depends on how elaborate a wedding you'd like. If it's a big one, it could take months.

Lisa: I don't have that much time.

Felicia: What does that mean? I told you Iíll help you.

Lisa: It just has to be sooner.

Felicia: Are you sure?

Lisa: Yes, Iím very sure.

Josie: I pick up the check from the bartender, right?

Sharlene: Yeah, right.

Josie: Anything you want me to get while Iím out?

Sharlene: No, that's all.

Josie: Mama, I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

Sharlene: You know, I suppose from your point of view, my life doesn't look like a rip-roaring success. Doesn't look like that from anybody's point of view.

Josie: I know you've been hurt.

Sharlene: Yes, I have.

Josie: But you act like your life is over, and you make me feel like mine is, too.

Sharlene: How? How do I do that?

Josie: Oh, mama, you're so pretty. You don't do anything with it. It seems like you just want to be stuck on this farm for the rest of your life, cooking for Uncle Jason.

Sharlene: Well, maybe I think that's better than hoping for something I know is never going to come true.

Josie: Don't you want to be happy? I mean, really happy?

Sharlene: "Happy" isn't a word I use too much anymore.

Josie: Then I feel sorry for you.

Sharlene: You're awful dressed-up to go pick up a paycheck.

Josie: No, I'm not.

Sharlene: You're going to go see Matthew, aren't you?

Josie: He wants me to be there. Tracy's really upset, and he doesn't know how to tell her about Kevin.

Sharlene: Do you think he'd be as careful with your feelings as he is with this Tracyís?

Josie: Why wouldn't he be?

Sharlene: You know, you're going to have to learn a hard lesson -- that in the long run, the only person in this world that you can count on is yourself.

Josie: I don't believe that.

Sharlene: Nobody does at your age. But if you don't learn how to be independent now, you could be paying for the choices you make for the rest of your life. And I'll tell you something, honey -- nobody knows that better than I do.

Jason: Going to be a heavy day tomorrow. A lot of people in this town never thought we'd get that cornerstone laid. I know just how important this is to John, too.

Chris: Yeah.

Jason: I bet maybe John's biggest problem is this whole project is just too important to him.

Chris: Maybe.

Jason: Well, he's got to realize there are more things in life than working.

Chris: Jason, why don't we go over to the site? The guys are going to need this information.

Jason: Yeah. A man has to know that there's more in life than just a job.

Chris: Yeah?

Jason: Well, yeah, I mean, I realized that. If you don't have somebody to talk to when you go home at night after it's all over, it's just not worth it.

Chris: You're a real prize catch, Jason, you know that?

Jason: Thanks a lot, baby doll. I'll tell you one thing -- I would never keep a woman waiting, not if I told her I was going to meet her there. Shall we?

Felicia: Lisa, now look, I don't want to seem pushy. I just don't think you're telling me everything.

Lisa: Oh, there's Josie!

Felicia: Honey, I want to talk to you about this.

Lisa: I know. I just want to say hi to her, ok?

Felicia: Lisa, I'm not kidding, I want to talk.

Lisa: I'll call you. Josie.

Josie: Hi, Lisa.

Lisa: Hi. How are you doing?

Josie: Oh, much better, thanks.

Lisa: Good. Have you heard anything from Kevin?

Josie: Not really. I hope they're treating him ok at that place.

Lisa: I know it was a tough night for you.

Josie: Well, Matt took care of us.

Lisa: You like him, don't you?

Josie: Yes.

Lisa: Do you know, I was thinking that you and Matt and Jamie and I could go out one night.

Josie: Oh, well, Matt and I have never gone out like that before.

Lisa: Well, there is always a first time.

Josie: I don't know.

Lisa: Well, Jamie will set it all up and -- unless you don't want to.

Josie: Oh, no, I do. I just -- I don't want to pressure Matthew into something he doesn't want to do.

Lisa: I think Matt's kind of shy and that's why he hasn't asked you out yet.

Josie: My mom says that Matt would never be interested in a girl like me.

Lisa: Why?

Josie: Because we come from different backgrounds.

Lisa: So do Jamie and I. Look at us. We're getting married, and there's nothing that could come between us.

Josie: I wish my mother could hear you say that.

Lisa: Now, Jamie has been saying he needs to spend more time with Matt, and I think a double date would be fun.

Josie: Yeah, it would.

Lisa: So you'll come?

Josie: Yeah.

Lisa: Good. Now, Iím going out. Do you want a ride? Can I drive you somewhere?

Josie: Well, actually, I'm going over to Matthewís. He's got to talk to Tracy about Kevin, and he wants me to be there.

Lisa: For moral support?

Josie: Yeah.

Lisa: I think my idea is perfect.

[Josie chuckles]

Lisa: Come on, Iíll drop you off.

Josie: Ok.

Sharlene: Oh, hi.

John: Hi. Jason around?

Sharlene: No. He and Chris went over to the site.

John: Oh. I guess I just missed them.

Sharlene: John?

John: Ahem. Yeah.

Sharlene: Did I cause a problem for you and Chris yesterday?

John: No.

Sharlene: I was on the porch. I overheard the two of you talking.

John: You mean yelling.

Sharlene: Yeah, I -- I feel badly.

John: Oh, don't worry about it.

Sharlene: Well, I do.

John: Listen, you needed somebody to help you pick up Josie. I was happy to help out. That's all there is to it.

Sharlene: Not quite all, not if Chris is upset.

John: She'll get over it.

Sharlene: You didn't tell her what you were doing.

John: It was none of her business.

Sharlene: Well, I hate this.

John: What?

Sharlene: This whole raising a kid by yourself business, always asking for favors, never being able to turn to her daddy and say, "hey, could you handle this one?"

John: Well, listen, I was happy to help you out. I like you, and I like Josie.

Sharlene: Do you? You think she's a good kid?

John: Well, sure I do. Don't you?

Sharlene: Well, I keep harping on her to stay out of messes like she got into yesterday.

John: She's a teenager. Teenagers are always in messes.

Sharlene: But I keep thinking that if I try hard enough, she can have this perfect life.

John: Well, I don't know anyone who's ever had a perfect life, no matter who their parents were. You know, maybe you should let Josie find out a few things on her own, spend a little time thinking about yourself.

Sharlene: Oh, boy. Now you sound like Josie.

John: Just because she's a kid doesn't mean she's always wrong. Listen, if you see Jason, tell him Iíll meet him back here later, ok?

Sharlene: Sure.

Amanda: Well, that was fun.

Sam: Yeah, it was.

Amanda: I guess I'd better get going back. Grandma said she'd only watch Alli for a couple of hours.

Sam: Yeah, and I got a cover to get out, so --

Amanda: Yeah, and Holly's probably desperate to get back in to see you.

Sam: Amanda, come on.

Amanda: Well, you know, if you start working late at the office, Iím going to be forced to divorce you.

Sam: Amanda, I think it would be great if you started working here again.

Amanda: Well, it wouldn't be easy.

Sam: No.

Amanda: I'd be thinking about Alli all the time, wondering if she missed me. You ever do that?

Sam: Me? Nah! That's woman's stuff.

Holly: Why did you lock the door?

Sam: Ahem.

Amanda: Think about it, Holly.

Holly: The stuff came back from the framer, Sam.

Sam: All right! Thanks a lot, Holly. Outstanding! Ooh, look at this one. That's good.

Amanda: No. You don't miss her at all, do you?

Sam: Nah.

Felicia: Ok.

Cass: Hi.

Felicia: Hi, honey. How are you?

Cass: Lousy.

Felicia: What now?

Cass: What's that supposed to mean, "What now"? It sounds like you're getting tired of me bringing my personal problems to you or something.

Felicia: No, no, of course not. I just thought things were going swimmingly well for you right now.

Cass: Well, they were until Nicole turned into -- I don't even know what she turned into!

Felicia: All right, what happened?

Cass: Michael asked me to do this little business trip for him, to do this little something for Mac, and I agreed.

Felicia: Nicole is angry with you because you're going to go on a trip that's going to help Mac?

Cass: Unbelievable, isn't it?

Felicia: Why do I get the feeling that you're leaving something out?

Cass: No, no, no, that's it. I'm going to go to the Persian Gulf, I'm going to do this little something for Michael, and that's it.

Felicia: Oh, wait a minute --

Cass: What, what?

Felicia: Persian Gulf?

Cass: Yeah.

Felicia: Yeah. You know, you forgot to mention that little part when you said it the first time.

Cass: Did Nicole call you?

Felicia: No!

Cass: Did she?

Felicia: She didn't call me. She didn't have to. You know, the Persian Gulf is dangerous!

Cass: Oh, not you -- I thought you, of all people, would understand!

Felicia: Why?

Cass: Because of all the things we've been through together!

Felicia: We didn't do them in the Persian Gulf, for heaven's sakes!

Cass: I'm going with Michaelís complete protection!

Felicia: Oh, right.

Cass: He's got an office over there --

Felicia: Mm-hmm.

Cass: He knows many high-ranking members of government over there. I probably won't be alone for a minute.

Felicia: Yeah, probably.

Cass: So you see? This was all -- this -- Nicole has been behaving completely unreasonably.

Felicia: Did you tell Nicole all these things that Michaelís going to do to try and protect you?

Cass: No.

Felicia: No? Why, because nobody tells Cass Winthrop what to do just on principle, of course?

Cass: That's right. I wouldn't tell her.

Felicia: She wouldn't be going to the Persian Gulf!

Cass: You did talk to her, didn't you?

Felicia: No, I didn't!

Cass: Yes, you did.

Felicia: Cass! Darling, darling, now, we all know that you're not a conventional kind of guy, and I'm sure that Nicole loves you for that.

Cass: Then why is she trying to control me?

Felicia: Because, honey, she doesn't want to lose you.

Cass: You think I'm going to go over to the Persian Gulf and get myself killed?

Felicia: Yes, you might!

Cass: No! No! No one looks after me like I look after me.

Felicia: Honey, honey, now, Iíve known you a long time, haven't I?

Cass: A long time. Ooh.

Felicia: Long time. All right. Now, I know that you have a real love of adventure. I also know that you have a real gift for survival.

Cass: That's true.

Felicia: All right, so instead of getting angry at Nicole about this, why don't you try and help her to not worry about you as much?

Cass: But you miss the point -- this wasn't my fault.

Felicia: I know.

Cass: She was being completely unreasonable!

Felicia: Of course she was, but -- but would it hurt anything if you could just maybe try and convince her that you have every intention of coming back to her no matter what crazy thing you're going to do over there? Talk to her.

Cass: I'll think about it.

Felicia: Good.

Cass: You are getting tired of me coming to you with my personal problems, aren't you?

Felicia: Yes, but I love you.

Cass: I knew it. I knew it. But you know what?

Felicia: What?

Cass: That's tough, because I'm going to keep bringing them to you because I love you, too.

Felicia: Good.

Cass: I'll see you later.

Felicia: See you. Oh.

Cass: I heard that!

Tracy: Where is he?

Matt: He's all right. He's in the hospital.

Tracy: The hospital?

Matt: Josie and I took him.

Tracy: Wait, what happened? Is he all right?

Matt: He's going to be ok.

Tracy: I have to go.

Matt: Wait a minute, where are you going?

Tracy: I'm going to go to Bay City general to see Kevin.

Matt: He's not there.

Tracy: Matt, you just told me --

Josie: Tracy, he's in the hospital in Madison, in a drug treatment program.

Tracy: What does this have to do with you, huh?

Matt: Wait a minute, she helped me. We were there for Kevin.

Tracy: And I wasn't, right?

Matt: No, Trace.

Tracy: Matt, why didn't you call me?

Matt: I caught him stealing something from the house here.

Tracy: What?

Josie: He needed to buy drugs.

Matt: He has a bad habit.

Tracy: A habit?

Josie: Tracy, he's an addict.

Tracy: Will you just shut up!

Matt: Hey, Trace --

Tracy: No, he is not an addict, ok? He just parties once in a while!

Josie: You knew he was taking drugs?

Tracy: He quit. He promised me.

Josie: He was lying.

Tracy: Let me tell you something -- he was fine until he met you!

Josie: Hey, that's not fair.

Tracy: Why didn't he come to me?

Matt: He was in bad shape and he was going through withdrawal.

Tracy: And you were -- you were both together with him?

Matt: Yeah.

Matt: You ok?

Tracy: You know, he always had it worse than I did with my dad. Probably because he was the boy, you know? I mean, he couldn't -- he couldn't do anything. He'd -- he'd spill his milk at dinner and my dad would be all over him. And when he -- when he went away to school, I was so scared that my dad was going to start in on me. I can't believe I wasn't there for him.

Matt: It's ok. It's all right.

Tracy: Um -- where'd you say that hospital was, you know? In Madison?

Matt: Yeah. I have the address, the phone number.

Tracy: Um -- I'd better go.

Matt: Let me drive you.

Tracy: No, I'm -- I think I'd better take the bus.

Matt: Tracy, just let --

Tracy: No, I -- I just need some time by myself to figure out what it is I want to say to Kevin.

Matt: All right. Is there anything I can do?

Tracy: You get the bus schedule, huh?

Matt: Sure. I'll be right back, ok?

Tracy: Thank you.

[Tracy sighs]

Josie: Tracy, I know Kevinís going to be ok.

Tracy: I hope so.

Josie: I'm sure Matt's going to be back in a few minutes, so Iím just going to go on home.

Tracy: Will you wait a minute? I have something I want to say to you.

[Car approaches]

[Door closes]

Jason: Hey.

Sharlene: Hey. How's it going at the site?

Jason: Oh, we're going to make our deadline.

Sharlene: Great, great. Did you see John?

Jason: No.

Sharlene: Well, he said he'd meet you back here later.

Jason: Well, I think Iíll go clean up first.

Sharlene: Jason?

Jason: What?

Sharlene: I've been thinking about something.

Jason: Great. What?

Sharlene: Would you mind if I opened up a little farm stand and ran it out of the house here?

Jason: What do you want to go to all that trouble for?

Sharlene: Well -- well, you know nobody bakes a pie like I do.

Jason: Yeah, that's right.

Sharlene: And I have got that little patch with the tomatoes and the corn that made it through the drought, and, you know, those Bay City yuppies go crazy over that stuff.

Jason: Well, I'm not saying it wouldn't be a success, but why do you want to go all that extra trouble for yourself?

Sharlene: I don't know. Because I just need something of my own, I guess. I mean, Tops isn't exactly it.

Jason: Well, I think you've got quite a bit between Tops and thinking about Josie.

Sharlene: Yeah, well, speaking of Josie, I was thinking, with -- with us living here and you being her only male relative --

Jason: Yeah, what?

Sharlene: Couldn't you try to get to know her a little better?

Jason: I know her just fine.

Sharlene: I mean get closer to her. She needs a man's point of view, Jase.

Jason: Hey, I think she's doing real well just with your help.

Sharlene: Couldn't you just try?

Jason: I don't know anything about kids, especially not girl kids.

Sharlene: Ok, fine. Never mind.

Jason: All right! But if she's as much a Frame as I think she is, Iím not guaranteeing any kind of success.

Sharlene: I'm just asking that you try.

Jason: Yeah, well, I will.

Sharlene: That's all, that's all.

Jason: Yeah, fine.

Sharlene: I'll put supper on.

Jason: Things I got to do for supper.

[Door closes]

Sharlene: Oh, hi.

Chris: Hi, Sharlene. Jason left his clipboard at the site and he's got some notes on it here I know he's going to want to see before tomorrow.

Sharlene: Ok, well, I'll make sure he gets them.

Chris: Great. Well, I guess I'll --

Sharlene: Chris, John didn't meet you yesterday because he was with me.

Chris: With you? Wow.

Sharlene: And the reason he was with me is because my girl Josie got into some trouble outside of town and I didn't want to deal with it all by myself.

Chris: I hope she's ok.

Sharlene: Yeah, she's fine. She's just fine. And John was a good friend to go with me.

Chris: Sharlene, what have I done? Why didn't he just tell me that?

Sharlene: Well, maybe --

Chris: Maybe because I marched in here mad as hell and I didn't give him a chance to, hmm?

Sharlene: You've both got a lot of pride.

Chris: You've noticed?

Sharlene: Yeah.

Chris: Oh.

Sharlene: But, Chris, come on, don't let that get in the way of a good thing. It's a good man who'll drop everything for a friend in trouble.

Chris: You're so right, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Well, I just thought I'd tell you that since he is probably too bull-headed.

John: Who's bull-headed?

Sharlene: Jason Frame. And if he doesn't get in here pretty soon and eat his dinner, it's going to be stone-cold. Would y'all excuse me?

Chris: John.

John: Chris, I -- ahem. Sorry about yesterday.

Chris: Me, too.

John: What do you mean you? You didn't stand anybody up.

Chris: Well, ok. Then Iím sorry about today. I should've had more faith in you. You wouldn't do something like that to me unless you had a real good reason.

John: Sharlene talked to you, didn't she?

Chris: Yeah. But she shouldn't have had to.

John: You want to try this again?

Chris: When?

John: Tomorrow?

Chris: Tomorrow's the cornerstone ceremony.

John: I know, yeah. I thought maybe we could go together.

Chris: Well, one thing for sure -- you've got so much riding on this building, you just might show up.

[Chris laughs]

Tracy: I've been really rough on you.

Josie: It's ok.

Tracy: And -- and it's because I was jealous.

Josie: Tracy --

Tracy: Josie, I said you weren't good for Kevin, but that's not true. Kevin had a problem before he met you, and I -- I know that. I was jealous because I wanted Matt to look at me the way he looks at you.

Josie: He doesn't.

Tracy: Please. This is hard enough.

Josie: I'm sorry.

Tracy: You see, I wanted Matt -- I wanted Matt to like me more than he does, but he -- he doesn't.

Josie: Why are you telling me all this?

Tracy: Matt and I never slept together. Um, that was his choice. The fact is Matt's waiting for someone special, and it's -- and it's not me.

Josie: And you think it --

Tracy: I don't know who it is. But I -- I thought you'd want to know.

Matt: All right. I got it all. Is everything ok here?

Nicole: Oh, Felicia, I am so glad you called. I've been pacing around here all day. I just haven't been able to get a thing done. I -- Iíve got to go. I think I heard Cass. No, don't worry, Iíll do exactly what you said. Ok, bye.

[Nicole hums]

Cass: Ahem. Hi.

Nicole: Oh, hi. Hi.

Cass: Hi. So what have you been doing?

Nicole: I've been coming up with ideas for the holiday line. It's going very well. I had a very productive afternoon.

Cass: Oh.

Nicole: How about you?

Cass: Oh, yeah, me, too.

Nicole: Oh.

Cass: Very. And I want you to know that I forgive you.

Nicole: Oh, you do? Well, for what?

Cass: Well, for being such a big baby about this Persian Gulf stuff.

Nicole: Oh, Cass.

Cass: What?

Nicole: That's so funny. Hey, do you want a seltzer or something?

Cass: No, no, no, thank you. You do have to admit that you kind of went overboard, though, don't you, right?

Nicole: Really? Well, then I guess Iíll just have to get better at it.

Cass: Well, what do you mean, "Get better at it"?

Nicole: Well, worrying, or pretending to worry so that you know you can have someone to come home to when you go off to do these crazy things.

Cass: Well, now, that's ridiculous!

Nicole: Oh, oh, come on.

Cass: Nicole, I do what I want because that's the way I am! I don't do it to get some kind of reaction out of you.

Nicole: Oh, really? Well, then Iím sorry. I guess I was all wrong.

Cass: Well, you can say that again! You think I want somebody sitting around here, wringing her hands waiting for me to come back?

Nicole: Oh. Well, then it's a good thing I wasn't really worried, isn't it?

Cass: Yeah. Great.

Nicole: After I finish this last sketch, do you want to go out to dinner?

Cass: Oh. Sure.

Nicole: Well, I know a great Iraqi restaurant over on east 16th street. Kind of gets you in the mood.

Cass: Yeah. We don't have to go out, you know? Pizza's fine with me.

Nicole: Ok. Suit yourself.

Cass: So all that stuff that you said this morning -- that was just to humor me?

Nicole: Yeah. Oh, um -- I'm sorry. I -- I guess that wasn't really fair, was it? I -- you know, maybe Iíll just go upstairs and change.

Cass: I want you to worry about me.

Nicole: Oh, Cass, I'm going to miss you so much.

Cass: But, you know, nothing's going to happen to me, I promise you. Nothing could keep me from coming back to you.

Nicole: I love you.
