Cass: All right, I'll give you a hint.

Nicole: I don't have time for hints, Cass. We're opening early.

Cass: Marvin Gardens.

Nicole: Oh, no. And Sophie called in sick. I have to be on the floor all day.

Cass: Park place.

Nicole: That's great. Everything's all out of order.

Cass: The B&O railroad.

Nicole: You know, somebody was supposed to retag these.

Cass: Water works?

Nicole: I think it's time to put these on sale.

Cass: Ok, Nicole --

Nicole: What?

Cass: Pay attention -- boardwalk. Boardwalk. You get it? Huh?

Nicole: I got it -- monopoly.

Cass: Yes! I mean -- no!

Nicole: Hmm, I should keep this one.

Cass: Nicole Ė

Sharlene: You have nothing to wear.

Josie: Well, Mom, it's a formal tea for all the trainees at "Brava," and we both know I have nothing formal to wear.

Sharlene: This is pretty important to you, isn't it?

Josie: Yeah, it is. I mean, this could be the beginning for me, a whole new life.

Sharlene: Well, you know, I know you're going to do very well there. But I want you to watch out for one thing.

Josie: What's that?

Sharlene: I'd be careful of Matthew. Now, Josie, if people think that you two are seeing each other, they're going to wonder how you got that job.

Josie: Mom, I got that job completely on my own. I mean, I am a runner at "Brava" because the personnel people liked me there, and because they knew I could do the job.

Sharlene: I know that --

Josie: Now, look, I got to go up to my room and pick out something to wear. It's not going to be easy!

Jason: What are you doing?

Matt: How's dad doing?

Rachel: It was a little rough at first. Everybody was staring.

Matt: Who?

Rachel: Everybody. When your boss is accused of murder Ė

Mac: What's my lunch situation, Liz?

Liz: There is no situation, Mac. Mr. Grantham canceled.

Mac: Oh. What's wrong with him?

Liz: He didn't say. You're free for lunch the rest of the week. Everyone has canceled.

Mac: Must be an epidemic. Hmm. Yes, definitely an epidemic.

Rachel: Darling, did I hear Liz say that you were open for lunch?

Mac: Wide open.

Rachel: Not anymore. I'm booking you.

Matt: What's with these people?

Mac: Oh, it's ok, son.

Matt: Kevin!

Matt: Hey!

Kevin: So, are you busy?

Matt: When did you get out?

Kevin: The clinic released me this morning.

Matt: Looking good, buddy.

Kevin: Thanks. I feel good -- sometimes. I'm going to beat this thing, Matt. I have to.

Matt: Man, Iím real proud of you.

Kevin: I'm going to stay clean. I'm going to fight like hell to do it.

Matt: I'm telling you, it's really good to see you like this.

Kevin: So, how's Josie?

Matt: Fine, fine.

Kevin: I guess she's still pretty ticked off at me, huh?

Matt: Hey -- no. She -- she knows that wasn't you doing those things. It was the drugs.

Kevin: I really put you guys through it, didn't I?

Matt: No. We're your best friends, through bad times and good.

Kevin: So, I might be heading out to California.

Matt: What?

Kevin: Yeah. At the clinic, they have this counseling, you know, about where you're headed in life, what you want to do with your life, where you're going.

Matt: And they told you to go out to California?

Kevin: No. It was my idea, actually.

Matt: Oh.

Kevin: I -- I want a fresh start -- clean. Just want to see what happens.

Matt: All right. Yeah, well, just don't turn into one of those surfer bums on me, ok?

Kevin: Couldn't do that. I don't have the right hair like you.

Matt: So, have you told your family yet?

Kevin: No. Actually, I'm headed there next. I have to face my dad. I have to try and talk to him.

Matt: It's a good idea.

Kevin: I was just so busy blaming him for everything. I never even heard what he was saying.

Matt: You know, it's nice to hear you talking like this.

Kevin: I'm really nervous. I just want to say the right things to him this time.

Matt: I don't have any plans today. Listen, why don't I drive you down to your dad's house?

Kevin: Oh -- man, I could really use the support. Are you sure you don't mind?

Matt: Hey. It'll give us a chance to talk.

Kevin: That's -- so, you got the jeep right-side up again?

[Matt chuckles]

Matt: Yeah. Yeah, finally.

Kevin: Good. And you and Josie are ok?

Matt: Oh, yeah. She's great.

Kevin: I'm glad to hear it. You guys are the best. You deserve each other.

Matt: Well, let's go. I got my jeep parked outside.

Kevin: Yeah.

Chris: Hi.

John: Morning.

Chris: You feeling any better?

John: I'm trying to. How about you?

Chris: I wish Michael hadn't come over and talked to you yesterday. It just made things worse. I -- I wanted to forget everything that happened.

John: Yeah, that's a tough one for me. Mike and I have a history of problems.

Chris: I know. Well, I've got some things I have to say to you, John.

John: Listen, you cannot minimize what he did.

Chris: Oh, I'm not, no. There's something you have to understand.

John: Something I have to understand? What are you saying to me? Are you telling me that you don't want to see me anymore?

Jason: Thought you had that saved for a rainy day.

Sharlene: I did. I was saving up for that sewing machine, but this is more important.

Jason: What is?

Sharlene: My daughter.

Jason: Josie again? What's she done this time?

Sharlene: It's for her future, Jason.

Jason: You got enough money there for four years' college tuition? Very good.

Sharlene: No. But it's enough to let her think that her life is heading in the right direction.

Jason: Stop right now. Tell me, what are you buying for her?

Sharlene: A beautiful, perfect dress.

Jason: Oh, that is a good way for anybody to start the future, isn't it?

Sharlene: Hmm -- yep. Do me a favor, Jason -- shut up. I know what I'm doing.

Jason: Huh.

Cass: Atlantic City!

Nicole: You know, I think this is one of my very favorites.

Cass: Didn't you hear me?

Nicole: Atlantic City, yes. I know, that's what the monopoly board is.

Cass: We're going.

Nicole: Going?

Cass: With Felicia and Mitch this weekend in Atlantic City. A little baccarat --

Nicole: You're serious.

Cass: A little blackjack --

Nicole: Midnight strolls along the boardwalk?

Cass: Oh, that, too, yeah.

Nicole: Hmm.

Cass: So, the rooms have these huge, round beds that vibrate.

Nicole: Ooh.

Cass: Yeah. That got your attention, didn't it?

[Nicole laughs]

Cass: And tubs for two.

Nicole: Hmm. Hmm.

[Cass laughs]

Cass: You know what they have most of?

Nicole: Uh-uh. What do they have most of?

Cass: Craps tables. Miles and miles of craps tables!

Nicole: Tell me more about the baths.

Cass: Oh, ok. They have jets --

Nicole: Jets?

Cass: To make bubbles.

Nicole: Oh, you know I love bubbles.

Cass: Yes, you and your troubles vanish with bubbles.

[Nicole giggles]

Nicole: Well, I'm certainly glad you came up with this typically ridiculous, badly timed plan.

Cass: Oh, now wait a second. Don't tell me that we're too busy to go away for a weekend?

Nicole: I wonít. I'm starting to get just as impulsive as you.

Cass: Uh-oh.

Nicole: We can close the shop early.

Cass: Ok.

Nicole: Ok.

Cass: I'll come back later.

Nicole: Hey, where are you going?

Cass: I'm going over to "Brava" to see Mac.

Nicole: He's back at work?

Cass: Oh, yeah. He started back as soon as they posted bail.

Nicole: Oh, poor Mac -- to have that hanging over his head.

Cass: I know. I just want to let him know I'll be out of town for a few days.

Nicole: There's really nothing you can do, is there?

Cass: No. Just lend him my support, that's all, of course.

Nicole: I know that Mac didn't kill Drew.

Cass: But since he's such a public figure, and since he seems to have had a motive, you can count on the D.A. Trying to pin this whole rap on Mac, no matter what. I'll see you later.

[Nicole sighs]

Nicole: Bye.

Mac: Oh, hi, darling. Just looking for a clue.

Rachel: For what?

Mac: Marsten couldn't have gotten these photographs by himself. He's not smart enough.

Rachel: Well, what can the photographs tell you?

Mac: Well, I don't know. Maybe who printed them, you know.

Rachel: Darling, there have to be thousands of photographic printing shops around here.

Mac: Well, if I could just find the right one, maybe I'd also find out who killed Marsten.

[Knock on door]

Mac: Come in.

Cass: Is this a bad time, Mac?

Mac: Oh, Cass.

Cass: Hi, Rachel.

Rachel: Hi.

Cass: Liz wasn't at the desk.

Mac: No, no, it's fine. It's good to see you.

Cass: It's good to see you, too. How are you doing?

Mac: Well, I've been better.

Cass: I'll bet. The police didn't turn anything up new?

Rachel: I don't think they want to turn anything up.

Mac: All they want is to get this over with. That means hanging me.

Rachel: That's not going to happen, Mac.

Cass: Of course it won't. We won't let it happen.

Mac: If I just had more time and a free hand.

Cass: Well, I have a free hand a couple of ideas.

Mac: What about?

Cass: About this whole takeover business. There are a lot of people -- we know that there were a lot of people involved in it, and I think that Marsten has lists around. I think he's that type.

Mac: Yeah, no doubt.

Cass: If we can just find a list with the other players involved --

Rachel: Where would that be?

Cass: His suite.

Mac: But the police have that cordoned off.

Cass: Oh, I'm an old cordon-cutter from way back. Are you going to be here for a while?

Mac: Cass, I don't want you getting in any trouble with the police.

Cass: Mac, you're my friend. And anyway, don't worry. I'll be careful. I'll call you later.

Sharlene: I can't wait to see the look on her face when she gets one of your designs.

Nicole: Well, I'm sure she'd appreciate anything that you bought for her.

Sharlene: I'm afraid not. Josie hates my taste.

Nicole: Oh, no.

Sharlene: So that -- no, really, that's why I was hoping that maybe you could help me pick something out.

Nicole: Well, certainly. I'd be glad to. Come in. Why don't we just start right here, ok?

Sharlene: Ok.

Nicole: Uh --

Sharlene: Oh, wait. What's this? Look at this.

Nicole: Uh, yes -- well, you know, I think that's really for an older woman.

Sharlene: No, no, no. This is perfect. It is Josieís favorite color. It's -- it's perfect except for the price.

Nicole: It's silk.

Sharlene: Silk. Right.

Nicole: Now, these dresses down here are a lot more reasonably priced. I just marked some of them down this morning. It's a great sale.

Sharlene: Oh --

Nicole: I can't resist a bargain, myself. It's my weakness.

Sharlene: You?

Nicole: Mm-hmm. Look at these shoes. I got them for 50% off. I bought them in black, too.

Sharlene: Fit great. They're beautiful shoes.

Nicole: Sharlene, how about this? This is really fitted. It really --

Sharlene: Oh -- oh, my!

[Sharlene gasps]

Sharlene: I think I found it.

Nicole: That?

Sharlene: Oh, it's so beautiful. Look at the collar!

Nicole: Do you really like it?

Sharlene: Do you?

Nicole: Well, I -- I do think it has its charm. Of course, the right accessories would be necessary for it.

Sharlene: I'll take it.

Nicole: Well, that was certainly quick.

Sharlene: I'll take it because it's Josie. It's Josie!

Nicole: Are you sure it's the right size for her?

Sharlene: Oh, well, it's a little bit big, but I can alter it. That's no problem. Would you put this in a gift box for me, please?

Nicole: Sure.

Sharlene: Thank you.

Nicole: Sharlene, how would you like to pay for this?

Sharlene: You take cash?

Nicole: Only with the proper I.D.

Sharlene: I hope you don't mind small bills.

Nicole: No, not at all. You know, you don't have to pay for this all at once. You could just put a down payment on the dress, and then I could defer the rest of the cost --

Sharlene: No, thank you. I've tried to watch credit.

Nicole: Ok, I understand. The cash will be fine.

Sharlene: Well --

Nicole: Thank you.

Sharlene: Thank you.

Nicole: I hope Josie enjoys this.

Sharlene: She's just going to love it. "N.L." Thank you.

Nicole: Bye, now.

Kevin: Not exactly "house beautiful," is it?

Matt: Hey, hey, it's fine.

Kevin: It actually used to be when my mom --

Kevin: Can I get you anything?

Matt: No, thanks. I'm fine.

Kevin: You sure? I'm going to get myself a soda.

Matt: No, no, no. I'm ok.

Kevin: Maybe not. Or anything else for that matter. My dad's on a real strict diet. Why don't you sit down?

Matt: Oh, yeah, sure. Your dad still at work?

Kevin: Oh, I guess so. Slaving away, no doubt, to keep us in the style to which we have become bored.

Matt: Hey, come on, man. It's a fine place. Plenty of people would love to have this house.

Kevin: You're right. It is a fine house. It's got a lot of memories. Some of them are really good.

Tracy: Dad, I thought you had to work late.

Kevin: Tracy --

Tracy: Why didn't you tell us you were coming home?

Kevin: What, and have you waste the fatted calf? Forget it. Where's dad?

Tracy: He had to work a double shift. Hey, Matt.

Matt: Trace.

Tracy: Huh! It feels like old home week, huh?

Kevin: Yeah, broken-down old home week. By the way, that refrigerator looks like a black hole. The light doesn't even work.

Tracy: I know. I was just about to go on a major shopping spree. I wasn't expecting you back so soon.

Kevin: Well, the doctor said I could come home.

Tracy: Well, you look great. I mean, even better than last week, before I came back here.

Kevin: How's dad doing?

Tracy: He's really trying, Kevin.

Matt: Hey, that's great. Right, Kev?

Kevin: What's your favorite junk food, Matt?

Tracy: Oh.

Matt: Oh.

Tracy: Those humongous chocolate chip cookies, right?

Matt: Right!

[Tracy giggles]

Kevin: Anything else we can bring you back?

Matt: Hey, wait a minute, wait a minute. I'm going with you guys. You kidding me?

Kevin: No way! You're just going to try and pay for everything. Forget it. This is our party, and you're our guest, ok? So just sit and relax. Let's go, Trace.

Tracy: Yeah, let's go. It's nice having you back.

Kevin: Yeah, well, let's see what dad has to say about that. See you in a minute.

Matt: Yeah.

Josie: Mama --

Sharlene: Hi.

Josie: I needed your help.

Sharlene: Oh, you're still trying to find a dress for that tea?

Josie: Yeah. Which is less disgusting -- this one, or this one?

Sharlene: "Less disgusting"?

Josie: Well, I mean -- well, neither of them is right, but I have to pick one. Which one?

Sharlene: No, you donít.

Josie: What do you mean, no I don't?

Sharlene: You have a dress for the tea.

Josie: You're kidding.

Sharlene: Open it.

Josie: Mama, you -- you bought me a new dress?

Sharlene: Look where I got it.

Josie: Oh, I don't believe it! Nicole Love?

Sharlene: Well, nothing but the very best for my daughter.

Josie: Mama, you're the best! I mean, I can't believe -- it must have cost an arm and a leg!

Sharlene: Would you just open this, for heaven's sakes? Open it up.

Josie: Ok, ok, ok, ok, I will -- I -- oh! My hands are shaking!

Sharlene: Nicole helped me pick it out, you know, but it didn't take long, because the minute I saw it, I knew that it was just right for my girl.

Josie: Oh, mama -- uh -- look at this!

Sharlene: You hate it.

Josie: No! No.

Sharlene: You went white.

Josie: Well, I'm just excited, that's all.

Sharlene: No, you blush when you're excited. You go pale when you're horrified.

Josie: Mama, I think it's terrific.

Sharlene: You really do?

Josie: Well, sure. It's, um -- it's -- so flowery. I mean, the print. You know how I love prints.

Sharlene: Well, I know. You know, I thought of that sundress of yours, and that's why I got it. You practically live in that, so --

Josie: And the fabric is, um -- so -- well, it'll keep me warm.

Sharlene: It's summer.

Josie: So?

Sharlene: So why would you want to be warm in the summer?

Josie: Oh. Right. Well, the -- the tea. I mean, you know those parties -- they'll have the air conditioning way high up. I mean, you know how they are.

Sharlene: Why don't you go upstairs and try this on, and then we'll see how it looks on, ok?

Josie: Yeah, right. Ok.

Josie: I love it, mama! I really do!

Jason: She loves what?

Sharlene: Jason, you're just in time.

Jason: You got her the dress?

Sharlene: I got her the dress, and she's upstairs, she's trying it on.

Jason: Good.

Sharlene: I think I made the wrong choice.

Jason: I don't understand what the big thing is for either one of you. That kid would look great in a paper sack.

Sharlene: Jason, she's trying to make a good impression.

Jason: Oh, Sharlie --

Jason: Well, that --

Josie: What do you think?

Jason: What do I think?

Sharlene: What do you think?

Josie: Well -- I asked you first.

Sharlene: Turn around.

Josie: It's -- it's very cute.

Jason: Cute, yeah.

Sharlene: All right, good, good. Now, take it off. Go take it off before you spill something on it.

Josie: Right. I wouldn't want to do that. Mama thanks again.

Sharlene: Oh.

Josie: You're the best.

[Josie giggles]

Sharlene: It's a disaster.

Jason: Yeah, yeah, yeah, it is.

Sharlene: She looks like a little girl in that dress. You know, the one I really wanted, I couldn't afford. And she -- I liked the flowers. Did you like the flowers?

Jason: Here.

Sharlene: What is this?

Jason: Go buy her a very special dress. And do me a very large favor -- don't look at the price tag.

Sharlene: Where did you get this money?

Jason: What are you -- it's a gift. Use it.

Sharlene: Jason, I want to know where you got this --

Jason: Calm down, all right?

Sharlene: No. I will not calm down until you tell me where you got this money.

Jason: I had a windfall. Now stop being so nosey and go get her a dress that looks decent.

Chris: You know I care about you very much.

John: You keep saying that.

Chris: In fact, I'm a little crazy about you.

John: Go on.

Chris: I mean it. The problem is I have a hard time showing you, and I don't know what to do about it.

John: I think you're doing fine so far.

Chris: John, why are you -- why are you being so understanding, so patient?

John: Because I'm crazy about you, too. And I want to help you get through this.

Chris: I don't think anybody can.

John: Why not?

Chris: Because I have a real problem, John, with intimacy.

John: Maybe we just need more time.

Chris: No.

John: Chris -- you do still want to see me, don't you?

Chris: I guess I better just come right out and say it.

John: Please.

Chris: John, I can't make love with you or anybody else!

[Door opens]

Frank: What are you doing here?

Matt: I --

Frank: Where's Tracy?

Matt: At the store with Kevin.

Frank: Kevin?

Matt: We drove down about an hour ago.

Frank: What for?

Matt: He wants to talk to you.

Frank: We tried that already. It doesn't work.

Matt: Look, I don't want to be rude, but I think you're wrong.

Frank: What is it with you and my family? Why are you so interested in me and my family?

Matt: I care about your son.

Frank: I don't need a druggie in my house.

Matt: Listen, he's really fighting hard. Why do you think the clinic released him?

Frank: They should have kept him forever.

Matt: He is reaching out to you.

Frank: Damn it, that's not true. You heard him that day at your house. He doesn't want anything to do with me.

Matt: He was strung-out and angry. He's not like that now.

Frank: How can you be so sure?

Matt: Listen, he's taking the first step. Meet him halfway.

Frank: Was this your idea?

Matt: No, no. It was Kevinís.

Frank: Somehow I doubt that.

Matt: Come on, would you give him a break? I know he always wanted to please you.

Frank: By taking drugs?

Matt: Oh, just -- just forget about that for a while.

Frank: I love this. You rich kid, living up in your ivory tower, comes down to give us poor folk some advice.

Matt: No, no, that's not -- that's not --

Frank: Your family is stinking rich. I saw the Cory castle.

Matt: No. My real father is not rich. Fact is, he was in jail. When he got out, he came looking for me. And I was glad he did, because he took the first step, and I met him halfway.

Frank: I always wanted Kevin to care for me. When his mother died --

Matt: It was hard on you guys.

Frank: He blamed me. Our life was never anything but hard. I could never bring in enough -- so many problems.

Matt: Please, Mr. Julian, just talk to Kevin.

Tracy: Whew, it's what the --

Matt: Well, I --

Kevin: Don't go yet, man. Hang out for a while, ok?

Matt: I, uh -- I have to get going.

Tracy: Are you -- are you sure?

Matt: Yeah. You guys are going to be fine.

Kevin: Thanks for everything. I'll never forget how good you've been to me.

Matt: Send me a post card from L.A., Ok?

Kevin: Promise.

Matt: Got to be strong for him.

Tracy: Matt --

Kevin: You look good, dad.

Frank: So do you.

Kevin: Can we talk?

Chris: This goes back a long way, John.

John: I'm listening.

Chris: All right. Once upon a time, there was this guy. He wasn't just any guy. He meant the world to me. I loved him more than anything, more than anyone. God, we were so young.

John: Those feelings were just as strong when you were a kid as they are when you're older.

Chris: I know. I was so naive, I -- I didn't want to make love with him because I hadn't been with anyone before. I was scared. And yet, I really, really wanted to. Well, we made love, and it was wonderful, and I loved him even more, and -- and then he left me. No note, no phone call.

John: You never saw him again?

Chris: No.

John: I'm sorry. That's -- that must have been very hard on you.

Chris: He was the love of my life. John, I haven't been with anyone since.

John: Well, you're going to have to let go. You know that, don't you? You have so much to offer. Why are you punishing yourself?

Chris: Because I'm terrified! I'm afraid I won't be able to love you, and I want to so much.

[Noise]

Cass: You?

Jason: Why are you hiding in here, Cass?

Cass: I heard you were a suspect.

Jason: For about two minutes, yeah.

Cass: You had an alibi?

Jason: I was with my sister. What's yours?

Cass: I'm not a suspect.

Jason: Maybe not yet.

Cass: What are you doing here?

Jason: I find you hiding behind a door. You got gloves on. That doesn't look real good for you, Cass.

Cass: I did it to help a friend. What's your excuse?

Jason: Well, then we have something in common. I'm doing it to help Mac, too.

Cass: You're what?

Jason: He couldn't have killed Drew. That's not his style.

Cass: Give me a break, will you, Jason?

Jason: I don't care whether you believe it or not.

Cass: You and the Cory's are hardly the best of friends.

Jason: That's exactly why I want to help. He and Rachel both look on me as like I'm some kind of bad guy.

Cass: Hard to believe.

Jason: Look, I'll put it to you straight. They're a wealthy family, a very powerful family.

Cass: And very good judges of character.

Jason: I don't care how many remarks you make, I'm trying to tell you the truth.

Cass: So you're looking to get on their good side -- is that what you're saying?

Jason: If I can prove that Mac is innocent, he wins, and I win. That is not a bad deal, is it?

Cass: I don't believe you.

Jason: I suggest before we waste any more time and the cops get here, you look at this half of the room and I'll check that half, all right?

[Mouths words]

Josie: Mama -- what's this box doing here?

Sharlene: It's for you.

Josie: But -- I don't understand. What, what --

Sharlene: It's a dress for the tea.

Josie: But you already got me a dress for the tea.

Sharlene: I returned it.

Josie: You what?

Sharlene: It should make some 12-year-old girl very happy.

Josie: Mama, you hated it, too?

Sharlene: I have never seen you look worse.

Josie: Oh. But --

Sharlene: Oh, I know I promised I wouldn't pick out any clothes for you, but --

Josie: That's what you said.

Sharlene: I know, and it was a risk because of how badly I blew it last time, but --

Josie: Oh, mama. I don't believe it.

Sharlene: I didn't blow it?

Josie: Are you kidding? This is the most incredibly beautiful, fabulous dress I've ever seen! I'm going to be the best-dressed girl at the tea.

Sharlene: "Woman."

Josie: What?

Sharlene: You are not my baby anymore. You have turned into a beautiful, beautiful woman, and I am very proud.

Kevin: So I guess that's when I figured out that I couldn't go on with my life till I came back here and settled the past with you.

Frank: I know I was hard on you.

Kevin: I just never gave you a chance.

Frank: I guess we're alike in a lot of ways. I know you don't want to hear that.

Kevin: Dad, I was so afraid of becoming like you. When you drank, I got so upset.

Frank: I just couldn't handle things. I felt like I was running in place when your mother died.

Kevin: Even though I -- I hated to see you drunk, and I swore to myself I would never let it happen to me --

Frank: You fell in the same hole I was in.

Kevin: I almost didn't make it.

Frank: I know. Tracy told me.

Kevin: Why didn't you visit me in the clinic?

Frank: I thought you didn't want me to, not after everything we said that day at Matthewís house.

Kevin: I was out of control, dad.

Frank: You blame me for mom, don't you?

Kevin: What?

Frank: You think it's my fault that she died.

Kevin: Dad, I never said that.

Frank: You didn't have to. You thought I asked too much of her.

Kevin: But it wasn't your fault --

Frank: You know how much I loved her, Kevin?

Frank: She meant everything to me. You kids -- every time I look at you, I see her. And when she got pregnant again, she shouldn't have --

Tracy: Dad, she wanted the baby. It almost happened.

Kevin: I don't blame you.

Tracy: We miss her, too.

Frank: I shut you two out, especially you, Kevin -- but I never stopped loving you. I just didn't know how to be there for you without Laura.

Kevin: Dad, I need your help.

Frank: Why?

Kevin: I want to make you proud of me.

Frank: I already am. I want so much for you. Kevin, you're my future.

Kevin: Daddy -- I love you.

Frank: I love you, too, son.

John: I've been scared, too, you know.

Chris: I can't picture that.

John: I was in love with someone for a long time, or at least I thought I was. I told you about that.

Chris: Yes, but you never told me who it was.

John: Donna.

Chris: Donna Hudson?

John: She wasn't married to Mike at the time.

Chris: Still, it must have been very painful for you.

John: Yeah, it was. But I -- I began to realize that the reason that I was in love with her was because she was out of reach. I was punishing myself. I loved a woman who couldn't love me back, then I could have all the misery I deserved.

Chris: Oh, John. How did you start to be happy?

John: I'm still working on that one, but at least I'm headed in the right direction.

Chris: You're a smart man, John. You seem to have your life figured out.

John: I don't know about my life. But I know that I'm smart enough to realize that you are worth waiting for, no matter how long it takes.

Josie: Matthew, what are you doing?

Matt: I'm tossing pebbles against your window.

Josie: Why?

Matt: Well, because last time I did it, it was very romantic.

Josie: It was, wasn't it?

Matt: Yeah, and I saw this movie where this guy, he wanted to ask this girl out for a date --

Josie: A date?

Matt: Yeah, and the girl said yes, and they went off and had a blast.

Josie: Sounds like fun.

Matt: So, you'll go?

Josie: Go where?

Matt: To the thing at "Brava."

Josie: It's not a thing, it's a formal tea.

Matt: Ooh, excuse me.

Josie: And I can't go with you anyway.

Matt: Why not?

Josie: Because you're the boss' son, and I won't have people thinking that's why I got the job.

Matt: Wait, wait, you're going to punish me because of who Iím related to?

Josie: I'll spend time with you there, but you can't take me.

Matt: You're serious?

Josie: Mm-hmm. And, Matt, Iím so excited. My mom bought me the most beautiful dress!

Matt: Great.

Josie: I mean, she went through all this trouble. She spent way too much money, and it just meant a lot to me. I'm really, really lucky to have her for a mom.

Rachel: Mac, why don't we call Adam?

Mac: What for?

Rachel: Well, he's got to have friends still on the force.

Mac: Darling, this is up to the district attorney, and he has his sights set directly on me.

Rachel: Why?

Mac: Because he has political ambitions. A noisy, nasty murder trial will give him a big boost.

Rachel: He'll lose.

Mac: Let's not talk about it anymore, all right? I feel like I'm totally neglecting the business.

Rachel: Oh, everybody's been great around here. They've been working overtime.

Mac: But there are some major decisions to be made.

Rachel: The most pressing one is the chief financial officer.

Mac: I have to fill that. The company can't be without a money man.

Rachel: Well, I'm interviewing people tomorrow morning.

Mac: Oh, good.

Rachel: You can see the finalists anytime after that.

Mac: Is there anything else? I don't want to leave any loose ends.

Rachel: Don't worry, darling. I'm taking care of everything.

Mac: What would I do without you --?

Rachel: I haven't the faintest idea.

Mac: And all our wonderful family? I just live for you all, you know.

Rachel: I know.

Mac: As long as all of you are happy, that's all that matters to me.
