[Music plays]

Sharlene: Oh, look at this kitchen. Do you believe your uncle Jason was willing to spend the money to finish it up?

Josie: Oh, boy.

Sharlene: What's wrong?

Josie: Oh, just counting up my money.

Sharlene: Well, I tell you, you should've hired your uncle Jason to be your accountant.

Josie: It's not funny, mama.

Sharlene: Sorry. Is there something you've been wanting to buy? I have a couple dollars left over.

Josie: No, it's not that. It's just I haven't been babysitting that much lately and my piggy bank's kind of low.

Sharlene: I know the feeling.

Josie: Do you like working at Tops?

Sharlene: No, not really. And so far, the money hasn't been that good, either.

Josie: Looks like we both need new jobs.

Sharlene: I'm sorry things are so tight, honey.

Josie: It's not your fault.

Sharlene: No, we've always scraped by.

Josie: I've never felt deprived. I havenít. And let's face it, I am the world's best bargain shopper.

Sharlene: It won't always be that way for you.

Josie: Wishful thinking.

Sharlene: No, it doesn't have to be. That's why it's so important that you think about a career now. Find something that you're really, really good at.

Josie: I just don't know what that is.

Sharlene: You'll find it, if you work hard and you set some goals.

Josie: You sound like an army recruitment commercial.

Sharlene: I'm serious, Josie.

Josie: I know you are.

Sharlene: Your independence is a precious thing, and the sooner you understand that, the better off you'll be.

Josie: I just want you to be proud of me.

Sharlene: I am.

Josie: You think maybe Uncle Jason has a money tree somewhere on this farm?

Sharlene: Hmm.

Jake: Can that woman sing or what?

Vicky: She is something else.

Jake: What did you think about the lighting?

Vicky: Oh, it was good. I mean, the whole thing was good, but what do you have in mind for it?

Jake: What do you mean?

Vicky: Well, it doesn't look much like a video.

Jake: A video?

Vicky: Yeah, I mean, videos -- aren't they supposed to be a little more visual?

Jake: Vicky, this is not a video, this is a work copy. We don't shoot the video until later.

Vicky: Oh, so this was kind of like a practice?

Jake: Right, I can watch Ronnie, I can see what kind of style she has, and that way I can be a little bit more creative visually.

Vicky: Like how?

Jake: Like I was thinking about using animals. Cats.

Vicky: Cats? Yeah, like big cats, leopards? Cheetahs!

Jake: In a surrealistic setting.

Vicky: The whole thing could be just like a dream.

Jake: That's what it is, a big dream, and we'll put her in a contrast of colors so that she'll stand out against the background. It'll be hot.

Vicky: Yeah, no, hot colors. Wait, wait, wait, let's make it really hot, yeah.

Marley: Am I interrupting?

[Knock on door]

Sam: It's open.

Matt: What if I were a burglar?

Sam: What's in here to burgle, Matt? Alli's with Mitch and Felicia. Amanda is out at a movie with Julie Ann. We got four crystal glasses, but -- oh, scratch that, three crystal glasses. I broke one last week.

Matt: Hmm. Well, there are your paintings, of course.

Sam: Yeah, each and every one of them a masterpiece.

Matt: Hey, maybe someday they'll be worth something, you know?

Sam: Yeah, maybe someday you'll be a nuclear physicist.

Matt: Ha! My old math teacher would get a kick out of that one.

Sam: That's good. It's a joke.

Matt: I don't know why you get down on your paintings. They're pretty good.

Sam: I don't know, Matt. I guess I'm just down in general today. This thing with Mac --

Matt: Yeah, that's why I came over. I just couldn't hang around the house, waiting to hear what's going on.

Sam: Yeah. Pretty sure it's all over by now. Mac said it was just a formality. All he had to do was sign the papers over and that company was theirs.

Matt: I can't believe that.

Sam: Yeah, Amandaís real low. That's why she went out with Julie Ann.

Matt: Wait, what's Mac going to do? I mean, Cory Publishing means so much to him.

Sam: Matt, he's Mackenzie Cory. He might be down for now, but he won't be down long. He'll be up again, you'll see. He'll be fine.

Mac: No one here.

Rachel: It's early, darling.

Mac: Only a few minutes.

Rachel: Well, everything's ready.

Mac: Funny.

Rachel: What?

Mac: All of a sudden, this room seems small.

Rachel: Mac, why don't you just reconsider?

Mac: There's nothing to reconsider, Rachel.

Rachel: Well, we could do what we talked about.

Mac: Out of the question.

Rachel: The family would fight, darling.

Mac: And get hurt. Think of what it would do to Sam and Amanda, and even Alli later.

Rachel: It wouldn't be easy.

Mac: It would be a nightmare. Marsten would have his and Amandaís picture in every tabloid in the country with lurid stories.

Rachel: Yes, but those stories aren't true, Mac. The stories would die out in time.

Mac: I know you're thinking of me, but it's no good. Our first priority has to be to protect Amanda and the baby and Sam. You know that.

Rachel: You're right.

Mac: Let Marsten have the company. It's over. No more fighting. They fought dirty. They won. Period.

Ada: So this is what it's like in boardrooms.

Rachel: Mom, what are you doing here?

Ada: Liz and I wanted to be with you for this.

Mac: That means a great deal to us.

Rachel: You're very welcome here.

Liz: Shall I have the others come in, or would you like a few moments?

Mac: No, let them come on in, Liz. The sooner it's over, the better.

Ada: Do you need anything, Mac?

Mac: Short of a miracle, nothing, Ada, thank you.

Ada: Mac, I can't figure it out.

Mac: Well, it's quite simple -- I'm losing Cory Publishing.

Ada: Without a fight? That's what I can't figure out. Why don't you dig in?

Man: That's what I want to know.

Mac: Hello, Phil. Welcome.

Phil: Mac.

Mac: Please sit down.

Rachel: This hasn't been an easy decision for him, Mom.

Ada: But it's not like him. He's a fighter. He goes the extra mile.

Rachel: There are reasons, believe me.

Liz: The board is here.

Mac: Hello, Dan.

Dan: Mac. It's really come to this?

Mac: I'm afraid so. Claude.

Claude: Wall Street won't believe it.

Phil: I don't believe it.

Rachel: Can we stop treating it as though it were a funeral?

Dan: Well, what else is it?

Rachel: A beginning.

Claude: I'll remember to tell that to all the people I have to lay off.

Liz: I could just strangle Drew Marsten -- and his chief.

Mac: That's too good for them.

Matt: Thanks.

Sam: Something's bothering Amanda.

Matt: Like what?

Sam: I don't know. She won't talk to me about it.

Matt: Did you ask her?

Sam: Yeah, I asked her, but she won't talk to me about it.

Matt: She has been looking a little low lately.

Sam: Matt, Amandaís been a basket case for over a week now. Last night it got worse.

Matt: Oh. Mom's been a wreck, too. I mean, we all have. I think it's just the takeover, Sam, that's all.

Sam: No. I think it's more than that.

[Phone rings]

Sam: Would you get that?

Matt: Surely. Yeah, hello?

Josie: Hi, Sam. It's me.

Matt: This isn't Sam.

Josie: Oh. Is Sam there?

Matt: Riviera, is that you?

Josie: Riv-- who?

Matt: Riviera.

Josie: Is this Matt?

Matt: Yeah.

Josie: It's Josie.

Matt: Josie? Um -- you sounded like someone else there.

Josie: Yeah, you sounded weird, too. It must be the connection.

Matt: Jos-- so what's up?

Josie: Well, I was just calling to find out about babysitting.

Matt: Tonight?

Josie: Yeah.

Matt: You're out of luck. Alli's with Mitch and Felicia.

Josie: Oh.

Matt: Which means Iím in luck. How about we take a ride out to the mill tonight?

Josie: You and me?

Matt: Yeah. I could really use the company. And, I mean, we've been sort of bummed out about my father's company. How about it?

Josie: Um -- I don't know.

Matt: Why not?

Josie: Well, I mean, I'd love to go, but I don't think my mom will let me.

Matt: Well, you can ask her. I mean, there's no harm in that, is there?

Josie: That's true.

Matt: Good.

Josie: You know, I'm surprised you want to see me after the restaurant last night. I made such a mess of things.

Matt: No, no, no, you didn't mess up. The only people that messed up were Susie and that clown she was with. Now go ask your mom.

Josie: I will. But first, can I talk to Sam? I want to find out about the rest of the week.

Matt: Yeah, sure, hold on. Uncle Sammy, telephone. Your babysitter wants to talk to you.

Sam: Yeah, Josie, hi.

Josie: Hi, Sam. I know tonight's out, but what about the rest of the week?

Sam: I don't know. You'll have to check with Amanda, and she's not going to be in till late tonight.

Josie: How is she? Is she better?

Sam: So you noticed that something's been bothering her, too, huh?

Josie: Well --

Sam: Did she talk to you about it?

Josie: Me?

Sam: Yeah, I mean, did she tell you anything?

Josie: No, no, nothing. My mom's here. She needs to talk to me. I got to go. Bye.

Sam: She knows something.

Matt: About what?

Sam: About Amanda. I'm going out to the farm. She's going to tell me what's going on.

Matt: Wait, now?

Sam: Yeah, now.

Matt: Wait, I'm coming with you.

Vicky: Hey, Marley, have you seen Jakeís tape of Ronnie? What am I talking about? You were there for the real thing, huh?

Marley: Yes.

Jake: Yeah, it's going to be hot. Vicky and myself just came up with some great ideas.

Marley: You did? Good.

Jake: And before I forget those ideas, Iíd better head over to my place and put them down on a storyboard.

Vicky: Jake, this is going to be just great.

Jake: Yeah. Thank you very much.

Vicky: I didn't do anything. I just talked. You know what you're doing.

Jake: Well, it was good talking to you.

Vicky: Ok.

Jake: Uh -- you were a great help, too, Marley.

Marley: I didn't do anything.

Jake: Well, you were there last night, and that meant a lot to me.

Vicky: You know, this is going to be such a big hit. I can just feel it.

Jake: So do I. I hope Iíll see you soon, Marley.

Marley: Goodbye.

Vicky: You know, this has been really great for Jake. He's been so up the past few days.

Marley: And he owes it all to you, doesn't he, Victoria?

Vicky: No, Jake doesn't owe me anything.

Marley: Come on, Victoria, don't be so modest.

Vicky: What are you talking about?

Marley: You have been very supportive of Jake during our separation.

Vicky: Well, I was there when he needed to talk. What's the big deal?

Marley: It is a big deal. Donna said you two are very close.

Vicky: Well, Donna doesn't know what she's talking about.

Marley: She's seen you two together. And so have I.

Vicky: Hey, Jake asked me to be there, and I was.

Marley: Well, I don't blame you -- especially after all he's done for you.

Vicky: What are you talking about?

Marley: He followed you all the way to Lassiter and then brought you back. It must have been very romantic for you.

Vicky: You don't trust me at all, do you?

Marley: Have you given me any reason?

Vicky: That is unfair.

Marley: You're trying to take Jake away from me again, aren't you, Victoria?

Josie: Need some help?

Sharlene: What I need are glasses. Ugh! Will you thread this for me, please? Ugh.

Josie: You look pretty.

Sharlene: Me?

Josie: Is there anyone else standing in this beautiful kitchen?

Sharlene: Ha! I look pretty?

Josie: Yeah. It's that blouse. It's a good color for you.

Sharlene: Wait a minute, you just noticed?

Josie: What's so wrong about that?

Sharlene: Because I've been wearing this blouse all day.

Josie: So you've looked pretty all day.

Sharlene: Ok. How much?

Josie: How much what?

Sharlene: Money do you need.

Josie: Mama!

Sharlene: Wait, shoes? Shoes? You want to borrow my white sandals?

Josie: They're a size and a half too big. Come on.

Sharlene: That's never stopped you before.

Josie: Mama, what makes you think I want anything, anyway?

Sharlene: I don't think you want anything, I know you do.

Josie: Ok.

Sharlene: Aha.

Josie: I do.

Sharlene: I am so smart.

Josie: But it's not money or sandals. I just want to go out.

Sharlene: When?

Josie: Now.

Sharlene: Right now?

Josie: Well, tonight.

Sharlene: This is a little short notice, don't you think?

Josie: No.

Sharlene: With who?

Josie: Matt.

Sharlene: Didn't you just see him last night, Jos?

Josie: So?

Sharlene: So it's too soon.

Josie: Too soon for what?

Sharlene: It's too soon to see him again.

Josie: Oh, you know, I can't believe you.

Sharlene: Josie, wait. Where does he want to go?

Josie: He wants me to meet him at the mill.

Sharlene: No. Absolutely not.

Josie: Please, mama, he's really depressed. He needs someone to talk to.

Sharlene: Well, then have him come here.

Josie: Mama, we -- we want some privacy.

Sharlene: Oh, and the mill is so very private, with those parties --

Josie: You know what I mean.

Sharlene: I have no idea what you mean.

Josie: Matt and I want to talk.

Sharlene: Then let him do it here.

Josie: Oh, sure, "come on over. My mom and I are great listeners."

Sharlene: I'm not going to be here.

Josie: Where you going to be?

Sharlene: I'm going to a farmers' association meeting.

Josie: Why?

Sharlene: Have you listened to the news lately, or are you too busy with your social life? You seen any rain around here lately?

Josie: I know there's a drought going on, mama.

Sharlene: Yeah, well, that's what this meeting is about. We're going to discuss ideas on how to handle it.

Josie: Ok, so you won't be here, but Uncle Jason will.

Sharlene: Uncle Jason is going to be working late at the hospice.

Josie: So no one will be here?

Sharlene: How much more privacy do you want? And the kitchen's finished, besides.

Josie: Thank heavens for that. When will you be back?

Sharlene: Josie, you're pushing it.

Josie: I'm just asking.

Sharlene: And I'm not answering.

Josie: What are you so afraid of?

Sharlene: Have you forgotten about the other night when I walked in on you two at the cabin?

Josie: Mama, it was cold. He was putting a blanket around me.

Sharlene: Josie, it's going too fast.

Josie: I am not a baby.

Sharlene: Then don't act like one.

Josie: What's that supposed to mean?

Sharlene: Babies are dependent, Josie. They're needy. They rely on other people to get them through. I don't want that for you. I want my daughter to be strong and mature, the kind of woman who doesn't need anything or anybody to make her feel whole.

Josie: Then why'd you let me go out with him last night? Why'd you let me go out with him at all?

Sharlene: I can't stop you from seeing Matt, or anybody else. I just want you to be smart, Josie. Smart and careful, huh?

Rachel: What time is it, Liz?

Liz: Mr. Marsten is exactly 21 minutes late.

Ada: Maybe he changed his mind.

Mac: It's not his to change. Marsten is a lackey. He does the dirty work. Unfortunately, he enjoys it.

Phil: It's hard to believe we won't be sitting around this table anymore.

Claude: We had a lot of laughs in this room.

Dan: Yeah, and a lot of arguments.

Liz: And Cory Publishing survived it all.

Rachel: It did better than that.

Ada: I remember the first issue of "Brava." I still have it.

Rachel: It sold less than 1,000 copies.

Liz: And then there was the week we went national.

Ada: Talk about celebrations!

Dan: Mac gave everybody a bonus.

Phil: Oh, not us. Not the board.

Claude: We sent out for fried chicken and planned the next issue.

Dan: Yeah, those were good times.

Mac: Where is Marsten? He's got me where he wants me! Does he want the company or not?

Matt: Josie.

Josie: Matt! I was just about to call you. Sam.

Sam: Hi, Josie. Can we come in for sec?

Josie: Sure. You kind of took me by surprise.

Matt: It was a spur-of-the-moment sort of thing.

Sam: Actually, Josie, it was my idea to come over.

Josie: Oh.

Sam: Yeah. I'd like to continue what we were talking about before.

Josie: When?

Sam: Just now, on the phone. When your mom came in, you hung up.

Josie: Well, yeah, she needed to talk to me.

Sam: So do I. Matt, would you wait outside for a moment?

Matt: Yeah. Outside. I like outside. I can listen to the crickets and --

Sam: Josie, tell me about Amanda.

Josie: Tell you what?

Sam: You know something's wrong with Amanda, and I need to know what it is.

Josie: She -- it's about her father.

Sam: No, Josie, it's more than that. You know what it is, and I need to know. Josie, please. Things aren't right at home. Amanda's shutting me out. If you tell me what's wrong, I'll make it right, ok? Please.

Josie: It was a day that I was babysitting.

Sam: Yeah?

Josie: Um --

Sam: Did you and Amanda have a fight? Josie, was it about Alli? Was she upset about Alli?

Josie: No, it was nothing like that.

Sam: Ok, then what happened?

Josie: It was somebody else.

Sam: Who? Josie, what happened?

Josie: Someone made a pass at her.

Sam: A pass?

Josie: Well -- he more, like, attacked her. It was awful, from what she said.

Sam: Who? Who attacked her, Josie?

Josie: I don't know.

Sam: Josie, she told you about the attack. She must've told you who did it. Who did it?

Josie: No! No, she didn't. It -- ugh. It was someone you worked with or worked for.

Sam: Marsten.

Matt: What's going on? Sam took off getting out of here.

Josie: I shouldn't have said anything.

Matt: About what?

Josie: Nothing. Please, I can't say anything. Please understand.

Matt: No, it's all right, it's all right.

Vicky: Are you out of your mind?

Marley: Admit it, Victoria -- this is your dream come true, Jake coming home and you two starting again where you left off.

Vicky: I don't want Jake. Can't you get that through your head?

Marley: I am leaving.

Vicky: Or do you just not want to face the truth?

Marley: Now, what is that supposed to mean?

Vicky: Marley, you're the one who broke you and Jake up in the first place, and now you're not willing to admit that you're the one that has blown it? You know, and now you come and blame the whole thing on me, right?

Marley: I did not blow it.

Vicky: He begged your forgiveness. He would've done anything to make it up to you. But would you give him any compassion? No. No, because you are just too perfect to even just forgive one mistake, right?

Marley: There was more than one mistake.

Vicky: That's not what I heard.

Marley: Donna saw Jake at the Pelican club with another woman.

Vicky: Oh, well, couldn't it have been a friend?

Marley: Jake does not make women friends.

Vicky: Well, I'm his friend, and he wouldn't have lied to me.

Marley: He lied to me.

Vicky: Well, don't take it out on me! I don't want Jake. He's all yours, Marley.

Marley: No, he's not. And he never will be.

Vicky: What, are you crazy? Jake wants you.

Marley: I can't give Jake the one thing he really wants.

Vicky: What? What is it that you can't give him?

Marley: A baby.

Liz: Can I get anyone anything?

Rachel: Nothing for me, thank you.

Ada: I'm fine, thanks. Well, I'm not fine, but I don't want anything.

Mac: Am I wrong or is this an outrage?

Rachel: You're not wrong.

Mac: Another sick little joke. His chief stands us up in Europe, now Marsten makes us cool our heels waiting for him.

Liz: It's the rudest thing Iíve ever seen.

Ada: He's a real prince, this guy, right?

Rachel: He could have at least called and said he was going to be late.

Liz: It's the least he could've done -- the very least!

Rachel: It's deliberate, isn't it?

Mac: Of course it is. He loves these little games, to think he's going to be directing my company from my office.

Liz: Well, he's going to be lonely. Very lonely. I don't know anyone who'll be staying on.

Ada: Well, Mr. Adorable will probably fire everybody anyway.

Liz: It's a disaster. It's a total disaster!

Mac: You're right, Liz, it is, and it's all my doing, totally, utterly my fault.

Rachel: No, it isn't.

Mac: I let them beat me out of my company. I let them humiliate us like this. I let my employees in for heaven knows -- it's not over yet.

Rachel: What?

Mac: He likes to fight? He's got a fight.

Vicky: You can't have a baby?

Marley: Well, that's what the doctors say. And believe me; I have seen plenty of them.

Vicky: Well, what does this have to do with Jake?

Marley: Well, I think you could figure that out.

Vicky: Not being able to have kids does not end a marriage. You can adopt, for one thing.

Marley: Jake wants his own children.

Vicky: Well, I don't think he would feel that way. Adopted kids are your own.

Marley: That's easy for you to say.

Vicky: Is that why you've been so angry with me? Because I'm pregnant? Marley, I care about you. I love you.

Marley: All I ever wanted was a good husband, lots of children. Just a family. And now I know that's not possible. Victoria, it's not you Iím angry with, it's me.

Vicky: Not being able to have children doesn't make you any less of a woman.

Marley: Well, then Jake wouldn't have seen another woman if --

Vicky: If what? If you had been pregnant? You are not responsible for Jakeís mistakes. If he cheated on you, that's his problem, that's not yours.

Marley: He doesn't know.

Vicky: Know what?

Marley: That I can't have a baby.

Vicky: You didn't tell him?

Marley: I've been too afraid.

Vicky: Oh, Marley, don't you know that Jake loves you no matter what?

Marley: You really think so?

Vicky: I know it.

Marley: You are a good friend, Vicky. I can see why Jake turns to you.

Vicky: And I can see why he loves you so much. You're great. Don't sell yourself short all of the time. It's funny, huh?

Marley: What?

Vicky: I mean, here I am with a baby and no man, and you have a man and no baby.

Marley: Quite a pair we make, huh?

Vicky: Yeah.

[Music plays]

Matt: [Southern accent] I tell you, girl, that's about the best darn iced tea Iíve ever had.

Josie: Go ahead and tease me. I can take it.

Matt: [Normal voice] yes, you can. It's one of the things I like about you.

Josie: Well, thank you.

Matt: Aren't you going to ask me what the other things are?

Josie: No. As long as there's something you like about me, that's enough.

[Crickets chirp]

Matt: Boy, those are some loud crickets you got out there. Listen to that noise.

Josie: Are you sure you don't mind staying here?

Matt: No, no. No, no, I'd tell you if I did.

Josie: Don't you have crickets at your house?

Matt: Well, if we don't, I'm going to have to talk to Mac about getting some, you know?

Josie: How -- how is your father? I heard things are really bad.

Matt: Yeah, well, he's signing over the business. You know, I don't know how that's going to affect my mom and him, you know.

Josie: Well, you won't be poor, will you? I mean, if your father loses his company, your family will be all right?

Matt: Oh, yeah, yeah, I guess.

Josie: You won't be poor like me.

Matt: Well, he's selling the company. That means big bucks. But that's not the point, Josie.

Josie: I know, I know, money isn't everything. I used to think it was. But when I met Sam and Amanda and got to know you, I realized that having money is great, but it's not something to set a goal for.

Matt: Yeah. Well, it's greedy men like Drew Marsten who use money to manipulate people's lives. You know, if that's what it can do to you, I don't want it.

Singer: I feel the magic between you and I Iíve got hungry eyes

Liz: Well, I didn't think it was necessary for Phil and the others to hang around waiting.

Ada: What if Marsten shows up?

Liz: He can wait. Well, I'll call them. I mean, they're just over at Tops. They could get here in five minutes.

Ada: Make it 15.

Liz: Where do you think Mac went?

Rachel: He went over to see Drew.

Liz: Oh, I hope he doesn't lose his temper.

Ada: I hope he does. I hope he lets Marsten have it.

Rachel: That's not going to solve anything.

Ada: It'll help Mac let off some steam. He was ready to explode.

Liz: No, I agree with Rachel. Mac has got to keep a cool head and figure a way out of this mess.

Rachel: Maybe I should go over there. No.

Liz: Why not?

Rachel: Because he might be in negotiation. I don't to want to mess that up.

Liz: But you could support him. You could back him up.

Ada: Liz is right, honey. Marsten will have a tough time standing up to both of you.

Liz: And it's better than just wearing a hole in the carpet, Rachel.

Ada: And you can call us and tell us what's happening.

Rachel: Ok, maybe I will go.

Ada: Hang tough, honey. If we have to go out, let's go out fighting.

[Music plays]

Matt: I don't know. I mean, sometimes people just get messed up. Life is tough, they can't handle it. They start taking drugs, thinking that it's going to get better.

Josie: I knew these kids in L.A. That were so strung out, they didn't even know what year it was.

Matt: I hope Kevin really kicks it. I hate seeing him like that.

Josie: Well, he's got Tracy to take care of him.

Matt: Yeah. Tracy's a good kid.

Josie: Kid? She's only a year younger than me, you know.

Matt: Yeah, but I knew her when she was a 12-year-old brat, you know? I didn't know you when you were at that stage.

Josie: Oh, and you're saying that Iím a brat?

Matt: Just a wild guess.

Josie: I guess I have my moments.

Matt: Yeah, I'll bet there are people with scars to prove it.

Josie: I wasn't that bad.

Matt: Hey, look!

Josie: What?

Matt: A shooting star.

Josie: Where?

Matt: Come here, quick.

Josie: Wow! I've never seen one before!

Matt: Yeah, well, they just -- I mean, they don't shoot all the time.

Josie: No?

Matt: No. Only on special occasions.

Josie: Really?

Matt: Yeah. Like this.

Josie: What's so special about this?

Matt: Well -- uh -- iced tea, you and me here, the crickets.

Josie: Yeah, I guess it is pretty special.

Matt: I'm really having a good time.

Josie: So am I.

Singer: Goodbye goodbye goodbye you were just a stranger and I was at your feet

Vicky: Marley, you don't have to wait.

Marley: I would like to.

Vicky: Oh, ok. I mean, it's just that the doctor's already late.

Marley: Well, I have my book -- unless you would rather be alone.

Vicky: No. Hey, it's great to be able to share this with someone. It means a lot to me.

Marley: Me, too.

Doctor: Vicky? I'm ready to see you now.

Marley: I'll be right here.

Vicky: Thanks.

Doctor: I'm sorry you had to wait.

Vicky: Oh, that's ok. Why, were you delivering a baby?

Doctor: Two in a row -- both boys, both over nine pounds.

Vicky: Oh, wow. That's amazing.

Doctor: So, how are you feeling, Vicky?

Vicky: I'm feeling ok. Still getting nauseous sometimes, though.

Doctor: But not as often, I hope?

Vicky: Not quite.

Doctor: You know what to do when you get that feeling?

Vicky: Crackers.

Doctor: Right, or any high-carbohydrate food -- pasta, bread.

Vicky: There goes the figure.

Doctor: It's going to go anyway.

Vicky: I guess you're right. I can't hide it forever, can I?

Doctor: I hope you won't want to.

Vicky: No. So have you figured out when this baby's going to pop out?

Doctor: No, but that's what we're going to do now. Why don't you go into the examining room and change, Vicky? It's right through that door.

Vicky: All right.

Doctor: I'll be with you in a minute.

Sharlene: Matt left?

Josie: Uh -- yeah, just now.

Sharlene: Did you have a good time?

Josie: Yeah. What are you doing here? I thought you had that farm thing to go to.

Sharlene: I did. It was postponed.

Josie: Oh.

Sharlene: So -- uh -- Matthew feel better that you-all had a chance to talk?

Josie: I think so.

Sharlene: That's good.

Josie: Oh, mama, I want you to like him. I think you'd really like him if you got to know him.

Sharlene: Maybe.

Josie: He's -- he's really special to me.

Sharlene: That's what Iím afraid of.

Josie: Don't you want me to be happy?

Sharlene: You know I do.

Josie: Well, Matthew makes me happy.

Sharlene: I know. And it scares me.

Josie: You -- you saw us, didn't you?

Sharlene: Yeah. By accident.

Josie: It was our first kiss.

Sharlene: I kind of thought so.

Josie: Oh, mama, I feel so good. I want you to be happy for me.

Sharlene: Josie, I know how special it is to really fall for someone, especially when you're so young, but it's just hard for me to accept that my little girl isn't a little girl anymore.

Josie: Do you remember what it was like?

Sharlene: Like it was yesterday.

Josie: Did you love him?

Sharlene: I thought so. You're not --

Josie: Oh, well, it's a little early for that, I think.

Sharlene: Just be careful, Josie.

Josie: Mama --

Sharlene: I'm serious. This is a very difficult world these days.

Josie: I know, and I wouldn't do anything irresponsible.

Sharlene: I know. But sometimes things happen and you get lost in the moment and you forget all about what's happening down the line. You know what I'm trying to say?

Josie: Yes, I do. But I'm not 13 years old anymore.

Sharlene: You sure arenít.

Josie: You're not mad about Matt and me, are you?

Sharlene: Do I look mad?

Josie: No, but that's what worries me.

Sharlene: I like having you around.

Josie: Yeah? I guess you're ok, too.

Sharlene: But don't forget what I said.

Josie: You won't let me.

Sharlene: Ugh! I liked it so much better when all you had to do to make me angry was to fling your strained peas at me.

Josie: Oh, would you like me to do it now? I mean --

Sharlene: No, I'll pass.

Josie: For old-time's sake?

Sharlene: I'll pass. Come here. Don't run so fast, Jos.

Josie: I'm just trying to keep up with you.

Vicky: Well?

Doctor: I can't be all that accurate about your due date right now, Vicky.

Vicky: Well, when is it? Sometime January February?

Doctor: Let's see. It's August now. Oh, no, it won't be that soon.

Vicky: Soon? That's six months from now.

Doctor: But you're only about two months along.

Vicky: What?

Doctor: You won't be due until -- oh, I would say late March, early April probably.

Vicky: That's impossible.

Doctor: Why? When was the last time you could have conceived?

Vicky: In May.

Doctor: Are you sure?

Vicky: Yes, of course Iím sure.

Doctor: You mean you haven't had a period since May?

Vicky: No. I don't know. I really don't keep track of that sort of thing.

Doctor: Vicky, when was the last time you had sexual relations?

Vicky: In May. Isn't that what I just said?

Doctor: Are you absolutely sure?

Vicky: Yes, of course I am sure.

Vicky: Jake, we shouldn't have done this.

Jake: I don't feel guilty.

Vicky: You're just using me.

Jake: Honey, that's what we were both doing. You can't be with the one you want, so --

Vicky: We're pathetic.

Jake: Or maybe we're sympathetic to each other.

Vicky: Oh, no.

Doctor: What did you say?

Vicky: Uh -- I said, "I don't get it." Can you do another test to find out when Iím due?

Doctor: Well, we can do a sonogram, yes. That would give us a more accurate idea of how far along you are.

Vicky: And then you would be able to tell when the baby's due date is?

Doctor: A sonogram would be more reliable, yes.

Vicky: Well, then will you do it?

Doctor: Fine. We'll set an appointment for three weeks from now.

Vicky: Three weeks? No way! I need it sooner than that.

Doctor: Vicky, is there a problem?

Vicky: No, I -- I just want to know when my baby's going to be due. I do have a right to know, right?

Doctor: Of course you do. And you will know in plenty of time to make preparations, believe me. Now, did you have any more questions?

Vicky: No.

Doctor: I assume you're eating well and taking your vitamins?

Vicky: Of course.

Doctor: And no alcohol, cigarettes? Plenty of rest?

Vicky: Uh-huh.

Doctor: Good. Then why don't you relax, and I'll speak to you soon. Call the clinic tomorrow and set up an appointment.

Marley: Is everything ok? Victoria, what's the matter?

Vicky: Nothing. Nothing. Everything's fine. Just fine.

[Phone rings]

Sam: Amanda? Oh, hi, Mitch. No, I'm fine. I'm just -- look, I'm out of breath. I ran up the stairs. No, I'm fine, man. What -- no, look, Mitch, you don't have to do that. I can come pick her up. Are you sure you want to do that? Ok, fine. Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. Thanks. Ok.

Sam: It's going to be ok. Everything's going to be fine.

Rachel: Drew? Mac?

Rachel: Mac? Mac. Darling -- darling -- are you all right? Mac!
