Rachel: The problem is I can't come in this morning. I've got all these manuscripts. I haven't even looked at them yet. Tell Evan I will -- I'll get back to him later, ok? Yes. Right, ok. Thanks, Liz. Hi, sweetie.
Jamie: Hi. Hilda told me you were in here.
Rachel: Well, I was trying to find someplace to concentrate.
Jamie: Well, listen, I can come back another time.
Rachel: No, no, no, stay. I've been up since 5:00. I could use a break.
Jamie: Well, I doubt if talking to me will be much of a break.
Rachel: How are you holding up?
Jamie: Well, I got somebody at the hospital to cover for me. I need a day to do nothing but think things over.
Rachel: Oh, I wish I could spend the day with you, but I'm swamped at "Brava."
Jamie: I know you are, and the last thing I want to do is burden you with my problems.
Rachel: I'm a mother. That's what mothers are for, remember? What are you going to do now that Lisa has broken off the engagement?
Caroline: Good, I caught you just in the nick of time. I was thinking about you this morning. Do you want to hear about it?
Evan: Only if it's pleasant.
Caroline: Oh, it's better than that. But, listen, take this shirt off before it gets wrinkled.
Evan: Well, I'm sorry, I canít.
Caroline: Hey, that's not like you.
Evan: I know, but, see, Iíve scheduled a bunch of appointments this morning.
Caroline: You'll reschedule them.
Evan: Listen, one of us has to be smart, and I don't think it's you, not today.
Caroline: I mean, you're upstairs, and I hear you walking around. It's driving me crazy.
Evan: Well, I tell you what I should do -- maybe I should just tunnel right through.
Caroline: Oh, anytime night or day. I mean that.
Evan: I know. All right, that's enough. Listen, are you going to see Sam today?
Caroline: Well, do you want me to?
Evan: Yeah, I think a word of praise from you about his paintings might make him feel good about it.
Caroline: Well, I could think of a word or two.
Caroline: Well, not too late, though, because I've got to go and see a local designer. I'm getting my whole autumn wardrobe done.
Evan: What designer?
Caroline: Darling, you've never been interested in my clothes unless Iím taking them off.
Evan: What designer?
Caroline: Nicole Love.
Evan: Oh, that's just who I hoped. That's great.
Caroline: What now?
Evan: Well, see, I want you to find out if she knows where her fiancť is.
Caroline: Who's her fiancť?
Evan: One of Macís lawyers. His name is Cass Winthrop.
Caroline: Ah. Well, more.
Evan: See, he's disappeared, and everybody's starting to get antsy about it.
Caroline: Well, listen, I'll tell you what, I'll do a little bit of sleuthing for you, but only as a favor, ok? I mean, I really want some sort of payment in return.
Evan: Well, you usually do, don't you?
Felicia: Hey --
Felicia: You know what? Why don't you do your version of Edwardian? You know, with the high neck?
Nicole: Oh, yes, and the small bustle?
Felicia: Well, I don't know about that. But, listen, I do have a favor to ask. I'd like to design my own hat. I sort of have an idea. All right?
Nicole: Of course it's all right!
Felicia: Thank you, thank you.
Nicole: Oh, a wedding at a racetrack. Only you, Felicia.
Felicia: I don't know. It may not happen. You know, Mitch keeps indulging me one moment, and the next minute he says, "Itís the most ridiculous thing I ever heard." I don't know, maybe it is.
Nicole: Why a racetrack?
Felicia: Because Wally would absolutely love it, and I really want to do it for him.
Nicole: Well, Felicia, remember that Ascot scene in "My Fair Lady" --
Nicole: With all those black and white dresses by Cecil Beaton?
Felicia: Black and white -- well, it's my favorite color combination.
Nicole: And Ascot is a racetrack, right?
Felicia: By George, I think she's got it. Oh, honey, we're going to look so elegant at this wedding!
Nicole: Oh, you, not me.
Felicia: No, we. Cass hasn't told you?
Nicole: No, I haven't heard from Cass in days.
Felicia: Oh, he hasn't told you.
Nicole: Told me what?
Felicia: Nicole, I only agreed to all of this if we have a double ceremony. You guys are going to get married with us at the track.
Caroline: Look, I really wish you didn't have to dash off.
Evan: But I do, love. See, Iíve left Rachel Cory buried in work, and she's going to wonder why I'm not doing my share.
Caroline: Oh --
Evan: Now, why don't you let go of my tie, and you be a good little carol.
Caroline: Oh, I hate it when you call me that. I mean, you really make me sound like a lap dog.
Evan: I don't want you to be sulky, ok? Hmm?
Caroline: You -- you don't even know the reason why Iíve come up here yet.
Evan: All right, you've got 30 seconds.
Caroline: Do I really have to sell Sam Fowler's work?
Evan: What, you think you can't?
Caroline: It's going to be an uphill battle.
Evan: The kid is Rachel Coryís son-in-law. That alone ought to sell his paintings.
Caroline: Yeah, all right, I'll call a few more dealers this morning, ok?
Evan: That's great. Now, see, if that doesn't pan out, Iíll take a couple of them off your hands. I just want that guy to have more income than he makes at "Brava."
Caroline: Oh, yes. You're really concerned about somebody else not earning enough income.
Evan: Well, I have a good reason, baby, believe me. I got to go. Now, you call me when you find out something about Winthrop.
Jamie: Well, I'm not taking up with Vicky, if that's what you're thinking.
Rachel: Have you talked to Lisa?
Jamie: Listen, mom, I used to be a writer. Let me take some of these manuscripts off your hands.
Rachel: Hey, hey, hey --
Jamie: I know to write a reader's report.
Rachel: Don't change the subject.
Jamie: Mom, you've made your opinion of Vicky only too clear.
Rachel: I just know how somebody like that might operate under these circumstances. I don't want you to be taken in by her.
Jamie: Look, I'll read these today and get them back to you tomorrow, ok?
Rachel: Jamie --
Jamie: Mom, I love you, and I respect what you say.
Rachel: But you're not going to take my advice.
Jamie: I might. I'll talk to you later.
Mac: I saw Jamie going out, looking as if his world had just blown up.
Rachel: Well, it has, in a way.
Mac: What do you mean?
Rachel: Lisa's broken off the engagement.
Mac: Oh, no.
Rachel: He's pretty shaken up about it.
Mac: Why would she do that? They're so much in love.
Rachel: I haven't had the time to talk to her about it.
Mac: I heard you get up at 5:00 this morning.
Rachel: It's the only time I can get anything done. When Iím at the office, the phones don't stop. I don't know how you've done it all these years.
Mac: Well, I'm not doing it anymore. I'll go talk to Lisa.
Rachel: Mac, I wish you wouldn't.
Mac: Why not? Darling, we get along very well. I'm not going to make things worse.
Rachel: No, I know that. I didn't mean that.
Mac: We can't just abandon the girl because she had an argument with Jamie.
Rachel: Mac, it's more than that.
Mac: You know something?
Rachel: Uh -- we don't know where Lisa is. She didn't go to work, and she's not at her apartment.
Mac: If she's that upset, she's probably at Feliciaís. Mitch is covering the campaign.
Mac: You going to get that?
Rachel: Yes, sorry. Yes? Yes, Liz --
Mac: Is it for me?
Rachel: No. Yeah. No.
Mac: See you later.
Rachel: Wait a minute, Liz. Mac! Mac! What?
Felicia: I can't believe that Cass didn't tell you about the double wedding.
Nicole: Oh, yeah, well, there are lots of things Cass doesn't tell me.
Nicole: He gets a kick out of surprising me.
Michael: Uh, Nicole --
Nicole: Michael, hi.
Michael: Hi. Hello, Felicia.
Felicia: Hello, Michael. Listen, honey, Iíve got to really run along. You've got many things to work out, many plans to make.
Nicole: No, no, no, wait a minute! You can't leave yet, Felicia.
Michael: Felicia, don't go on my account, all right?
Nicole: Why don't you want to talk to Michael?
Felicia: Michael -- look, I just didn't want to make this a personal thing. You know Lisa is like the daughter I never had.
Nicole: What's Michael done to Lisa?
Felicia: No, Michael hasn't done anything.
Michael: It's just that I have a daughter named Vicky.
Nicole: Oh. Uh, I have to go over some things with Sophie. Why don't I just get out of here?
Michael: Ok, Felicia --
Felicia: Michael, come on. You can't blame me for protecting Lisa.
Michael: No, but you can't blame Donna for wanting to protect Victoria.
Felicia: I know.
Michael: Felicia, I have a feeling that if you were to stop interfering -- and Rachel -- that Donna would back down.
Felicia: I can't speak for Rachel. You know that.
Michael: Fine, then speak for yourself.
Felicia: I don't think I can do that, either, at least not yet.
Caroline: Hello. Are you Nicole Love?
Felicia: No, I'm not. I'm afraid she's in the show room.
Michael: But she will be down soon.
Caroline: You're Michael Hudson.
Michael: Yes, Iím sorry. Have we met?
Caroline: No, but I've seen your picture in all the magazines. Hello, Iím Caroline Stafford. I'm new to Bay City.
Michael: Well, welcome, Ms. Stafford. I hope you enjoy your time in Bay City. Um -- friend?
Michael: Ok, friend, would you tell Nicole that Iíll call her later?
Felicia: Yes, of course I will.
Michael: Good. It was a pleasure.
Felicia: Oh, Michael?
Felicia: Give my best to Donna.
Michael: I certainly will.
Caroline: God, he's so good-looking in real life. I mean, is he as charming as he looks?
Felicia: Michael is a very special man in every way.
Caroline: Friends, I gather.
Felicia: Yes, I hope so.
Felicia: Hey, Nicole?
Nicole: Did Michael leave?
Felicia: Yes. He said he would call you later.
Caroline: Nicole Love. I'm Caroline Stafford.
Nicole: Oh, Caroline, nice to meet you. Why don't you just go on upstairs and see Sophie. First door on the right. She's our seamstress.
Caroline: Oh, of course.
Nicole: She'll take care of you, all right?
Felicia: Bye-bye. Why don't we just finish talking about our wedding plans, all right?
Nicole: Are you sure Cass agreed to this?
Felicia: Yes, of course he did. Would I say he did if he didn't?
Nicole: Well, it could be one of his little jokes.
Felicia: Well, we'll ask him when he gets back.
Nicole: If he ever does.
Felicia: Honey, he'll be back. You know that.
Nicole: I'm worried, Felicia. Why doesn't he call?
Felicia: Well, you know Cass. He sort of lets things slip his mind.
Nicole: Yeah, well, I get the sinking feeling that something is very wrong.
Felicia: Oh, don't be silly. He's fine. He'll be back, and then we'll go ahead with our wedding plans, all right?
Nicole: All right.
Caroline: The seamstress sent me back to you.
Nicole: Oh, all right. Well, we have several ensembles that will look marvelous on you.
Caroline: Well, my friends in Chicago said you would have.
Nicole: Oh. Oh -- oh, Ms. Stafford, I'm sorry. I'm forgetting my manners.
Caroline: Caroline, please.
Nicole: Caroline. Ok. Well, I'd like to introduce you. This is Felicia Gallant. Felicia, Caroline Stafford.
Felicia: Hello. We did talk after Michael left, and we were not introduced. Hello.
Nicole: Well, excuse me for a moment while I get the sketches I put aside for you.
Caroline: You're familiar. I've read all of your books.
Felicia: Have you?
Caroline: Look, they're my favorite beach reading.
Caroline: Oh, Michael Hudson and Felicia Gallant, both in the same room. Bay City is going to be more interesting than I thought.
Josie: Hi. I thought you'd be at work.
Jason: I'm waiting for an important call.
Josie: You reading that again?
Josie: That paper. You were reading it last night.
Jason: It's a bid -- you handle the dishes. I'll take care of my paperwork, all right?
Jason: Yeah. What? The rooms are rented! I'm sorry!
Josie: Uncle Jason, we still have another room to rent, you know.
Jason: Two noisy college kids around here are quite enough for me, thank you.
Josie: Well, mama could use the money.
Jason: If she needs more money, she has to ask me, that's all. Real simple.
Jason: What are you doing?
Josie: I was just going to call Matthew before he went to his classes.
Jason: Josie, I just got somebody off the phone so I could get my call. Do me a favor, don't use it until it comes in!
Josie: Must be really important.
Jason: It is.
Josie: Does it have something to do with that construction bid for Cory Publishing?
Jason: In a way, yeah.
Josie: Either it is or it isnít.
Jason: Wash the dishes, all right?
Felicia: Would you stop worrying so much about Cass?
Nicole: That's easy for you to say.
Felicia: No, no, it's not, actually. I've just learned through the years that no matter what kind of trouble he gets into, he always lands on his feet.
Nicole: Ugh -- that's what he always tells me, too.
Felicia: Honey, if you just keep the reins loose, he will come home down the stretch. Did you hear that?
Felicia: I'm starting to sound like a racetrack announcer.
Nicole: That's what happens when you plan a wedding like yours.
Felicia: I guess so. I'm going home.
Nicole: All right.
Felicia: Listen, I will call you the moment he calls me, if he does.
Nicole: Oh, would you, please?
Felicia: Yes, yes. Cross my heart.
Nicole: All right.
Felicia: See you later. All right, bye-bye.
Nicole: Well, how do you like what you've seen so far?
Caroline: Very nice. Very nice, indeed. But I presume these are originals?
Nicole: Actually, not exactly.
Caroline: Oh, look, I can't be seen in something already seen on somebody else.
Nicole: Oh, well, I could work with you on a few things if you'd like.
Caroline: Oh, thanks a lot. But I presume from your conversation with Ms. Gallant that you're just about to get married.
Nicole: Yes. Well, I just found that out myself.
Caroline: I don't understand.
Nicole: Oh, I'm sorry. To understand that, you would have to know my fiancť.
Caroline: Is this him here?
Nicole: Yes. Cass is my business partner.
Caroline: I'd like to meet him.
Nicole: He's out of town at the moment.
Caroline: Oh, on business for you?
Nicole: Not really. At the moment, he's doing work for Cory Publishing.
Caroline: Oh, really? I have a friend who's working there. Look, when your Cass gets back into town, we must do dinner.
Nicole: Well, don't make any plans until I hear from him.
Caroline: Well, just call me when he gets back.
Nicole: Who's your friend at Cory?
Caroline: Evan Bates. He's new there.
Nicole: I've met him.
Nicole: In fact, Mac told me that Evan might know where --
Caroline: Go on.
Nicole: Oh, no, never mind. Has he mentioned Cass to you?
Caroline: No, not that I recall, but I'm sure they'd get on like a house on fire. Look, we must do dinner.
Nicole: Well, I'll certainly keep it in mind.
Caroline: Look, just call me as soon as he gets back from -- where did you say he was?
Nicole: Well, I didn't say. I mean, well, he's on the move a lot, and Iím never quite sure where he is until I hear from him, you know.
Caroline: This is not a very conventional courtship, is it?
Nicole: Well, there's nothing conventional about Cass.
Caroline: Well, he looks quite fascinating.
Nicole: Uh, yes. Well, let's get to work on your evening wardrobe, or are you limited to daytime?
Caroline: Oh, no. Look, we're not limited to anything. If I had the money and the time, I'd get you to do the entire wardrobe. You see, Iím opening a new art gallery, and I want some fabulous clothes. So, you know, whatever you like.
Nicole: Well, great. I'll do my best.
Nicole: Let me get my sketchpad.
Caroline: I'm sure you will.
Matt: I got it, Hilda. Cory residence.
Josie: Just the Cory I was hoping for.
Matt: Hi! What are you doing today?
Josie: Oh, just trying to get out of the house.
Matt: Well, my morning classes are canceled. Why don't I pick you up?
Josie: That'd be great. Could you make it as soon as possible?
Matt: Yeah, I'm on my way.
Josie: I have to talk to you about something, and I -- I can't do it over the phone.
Matt: Right. I'll see you soon.
Matt: Hmm. Hmm. Oh!
Woman: Oh! Whoa, they changed this room all over. I liked it better before.
Matt: Excuse me?
Woman: The gardener outside said that there weren't any Cory's around, but I could come in and wait for Mr. Cory if I wanted to, and I said I wanted to.
Woman: Who are you?
Matt: Did Hilda let you come up here?
Woman: I let myself in. I always used to in the old days.
Matt: The old days?
Woman: You look an awful lot like Jamie used to in those old times. Did you know that?
Matt: What old times?
Woman: Oh, before you were born, from the looks of you.
Matt: I'm Matthew. Matthew Cory.
Woman: I don't believe this! You were just a baby! Oh!
Matt: Uh -- uh -- uh -- I don't know where Mac is right now, but I can call -- Hilda! -- And she can get you some coffee, or --
Woman: No, no. I'm just going to look around.
Matt: Ok. Ok. I got to run.
Woman: Well, don't worry about me.
Matt: Right. Bye.
Woman: No. I'll see you.
Hilda: Who are you? Who are you?
Woman: You must be Hilda.
Hilda: What are you doing in here?
Woman: Um -- I'm just passing through. I'm waiting for Mr. Cory.
Hilda: But -- who are you?
Woman: I'm Mr. Cory's daughter's former personal maid.
Hilda: Mrs. Bancroft?
Woman: Mrs. Wheeler now.
Josie: I thought my uncle would never leave.
Matt: What is with him?
Josie: Oh, he's expecting another one of those weird phone calls.
Matt: Thank you. Did he get it?
Josie: No. I mean, he couldn't wait any longer. You know, he left me with three pages of information on how to get in touch with him in case the call does come?
Matt: Must be really important then, huh?
Josie: Yeah. He's really nervous about it, too.
Matt: You think he's in some kind of trouble?
Josie: I know my mom is really worried about it, and he'd kill me if he knew I was talking to you about it.
Josie: Because it has something to do with Cory Publishing.
Matt: Yeah, yeah -- the contract construction bid he's been working on, or something.
Josie: Did you get a chance to talk to either of your parents about it?
Matt: Well, I mentioned it to Mac.
Josie: What did he say?
Matt: He said he doesn't know anything about Frame Construction doing business with Cory Publishing, but he's not really involved with the company right now.
Josie: Well, I just want to put my mom's mind at ease.
Matt: Listen, you're definite that he mentioned Cory during the phone call?
Josie: Yes, Iím positive that he did. And afterwards he explained it was some kid of bid or something.
Matt: Ok. Well, I'm going to find out something.
Josie: Thanks, Matt. I just want to tell my mom that there's nothing to worry about.
Jamie: Oh --
Jamie: Excuse me.
Josie: Hi, Jamie.
Jamie: I didn't mean to interrupt.
Matt: Aren't you usually at the hospital by now?
Jamie: I took a day off.
Matt: Oh, yeah. Listen, Mom told me about you and Lisa. I'm sorry.
Josie: I am too, Jamie.
Jamie: Oh, thanks. Appreciate that. But it's nice to see at least one romance is working out well.
Matt: Yes, it is.
Jason: I get my call?
Josie: No, I thought you were at the site.
Jason: John's got things, and so I thought Iíd finish my work here, if I can get some privacy.
Josie: Are you asking us to leave?
Matt: It's ok. We can go over to my house. There's somebody I want you to meet --
Matt: If she's still there.
Josie: Bye, Uncle Jason.
Jamie: Jason, I can work on this upstairs.
Jason: How are things going?
Jamie: I've had better days.
Jason: Yeah, I heard about Lisa. I'm sorry.
Jamie: Seems as if everybody has.
Jason: Well, you can take it as a blessing in disguise. You could marry Vicky now with a very clear, clean conscience.
Jamie: Don't start, Jason, ok?
Jason: She's in love with you. She's carrying your child. She's beautiful, rich. What more do I got to say?
Jamie: You've made your point, Jason. Just don't hammer it home, ok?
Jason: I'm not going to spend the rest of my day waiting for the bloody phone to ring.
Evan: You're late.
Caroline: I'm sorry, darling.
Evan: What kept you?
Caroline: Oh, I had to have them replace some really awful furniture in my apartment.
Evan: Well, you could have called me.
Caroline: Evan, I said I was sorry.
Evan: Ok, never mind, never mind. Now I want to know what you found out about Winthrop. Where is he?
Caroline: She doesn't know anything.
Evan: She doesn't know where her own fiancť is?
Caroline: Listen, she didn't even know she was getting married until somebody else broke the news to her.
Evan: What are you talking about?
Caroline: Look, it's really complicated, but just trust me. She seems to know as little about him as I know about you.
Evan: Well, I'm not really in the mood for criticism today.
Caroline: Yeah, well, listen -- absolute praise is the order of the day, ok?
Evan: Ok. Well, you happen to be in luck because right now I'm in between appointments. How's that?
Lisa: Oh, Mac.
Mac: Lisa. How are you?
Lisa: Fine. I'm sorry, I didn't expect to see you.
Mac: Am I intruding now?
Lisa: No, of course not.
Mac: May I come in?
Lisa: Yes, please.
Mac: Thank you.
Lisa: It's nice to see you. I think I'm going to miss you and your family as much as I miss Jamie.
Mac: Rachel just this minute told me.
Lisa: I'm sorry, Mac. I didn't mean to hurt any of you.
Mac: Of course you didn't, dear. We're not the issue here. You are. Rachel and I are very worried about you.
Lisa: I had to do what I thought was best.
Mac: I know you did, dear. I didn't come over here to criticize you.
Lisa: I'm sorry. I guess I'm just a little defensive.
Mac: It's all right. But please don't be. We just want to know if you're all right. I want to know if there is anything I can do.
Lisa: Thank you, but I don't know if we should be talking about this. Jamie might misunderstand.
Mac: He really loves you.
Lisa: I know.
Mac: And you love him, too. Don't you, Lisa? Well, then, you're going to find a way to work it all out, sweetheart.
Lisa: I don't think so.
Mac: Lisa, every couple that's in love goes through some very bad times. Rachel and I have had many of them. We're still together. We're still in love after all these years, and you and Jamie will be, too. You just wait and see, now.
Lisa: You don't understand, Mac.
Mac: Well, help me. Explain.
Lisa: I know Jamie loves me, and I love him, but I just can't handle it.
Mac: You can't handle what?
Lisa: The baby. I -- it's too much for me.
Mac: Are you pregnant?
Lisa: No -- you don't know.
Mac: Lisa, who is pregnant?
Lisa: Vicky Hudson.
Mac: With Jamieís child? Oh, my dear, Iím so sorry. Oh, I'm so dreadfully sorry.
Matt: All right, you're still here.
Woman: Oh -- sorry.
Matt: Oh, my God.
Woman: I didn't hear you come in. Hello, ma'am.
Matt: This is my friend Josie. Josie -- Iím sorry, you didn't tell me your name.
Vivien: I'm Vivien Gorrow, formerly personal maid to Mr. Cory's daughter in another time before you were born.
Josie: I -- I didn't know Mr. Cory had another daughter.
Vivien: Iris Cory Carrington Delaney Bancroft Wheeler. Iris Cory Carrington Delaney Bancroft Wheeler -- I don't think I've left anyone out.
Matt: Right. My folks hardly ever mention her.
Vivien: She and your mom weren't the best of friends. In fact, they weren't any kind of friends.
Matt: But you work for Iris.
Vivien: Not anymore.
Matt: Oh, you quit.
Vivien: She fired me. After all those years, she wouldn't even give me a reference.
Matt: I'm sorry.
Vivien: I didn't have anywhere else to go. Mr. Cory has always been so nice, so here I am.
Matt: Well, I'm -- you know, I'm sorry you had to wait all this time for nothing. I'm --
Vivien: It's ok.
Matt: You know, I thought he'd be home by now.
Vivien: Um -- I'm going to go to a rooming house, and then Iíll be back.
Vivien: It was nice to meet you, ma'am.
Josie: Gee, no one's ever called me "ma'am" before.
Felicia: Lisa? Honey, Iím home. Lisa! Hi.
Felicia: What happened, honey? What's the matter?
Lisa: Mac was here.
Felicia: Did he upset you?
Lisa: No. I upset him.
Lisa: He didn't know about Vickyís baby. I was trying to explain why Jamie and I had broken up, and -- Felicia, Iím making everyone miserable!
Felicia: No, darling, you're not. You're not. It's just that Rachel was trying to protect Mac by keeping it from him.
Lisa: Do you think -- is he going to get angry with her?
Felicia: No, no, I'm sure he's not.
Lisa: I don't want to cause trouble between them.
Felicia: No, you wonít. Listen, why don't I call Rachel, all right? Let me call her.
Felicia: What, honey?
Lisa: I keep having this dream.
Felicia: What dream?
Lisa: I'm looking through a window, and I see a little boy and he's out on the street, and, I don't know, he's about 2 years old. And he's alone and he's scared, and he's calling, "daddy."
Felicia: Honey --
Lisa: Jamie was raised without his father. He knows what it feels like. He doesn't want to be apart from his child, and I can't -- I can't get between them.
Felicia: Darling, you don't have to.
Lisa: Yeah, but I could accept the child, but I can't deal with having Vicky in my life.
Felicia: I know. What do you plan to do? Huh?
Lisa: Jamie's been trying to reach me. He left about a dozen messages on my machine. I'm going to go see him.
Felicia: Good. I think that's good.
Lisa: I'm going to bring his things back that he left at my apartment.
Felicia: Honey, I don't think you have to do that right now, do you?
Lisa: Felicia, I have to make a clean break. I can't have his stuff around.
Felicia: Honey, look, you don't have to go and see him. Why don't you call him? I mean, if you really want to make a clean break, why don't you do that?
Lisa: That wouldn't be right. I have to do it in person.
Felicia: Ok, ok.
Lisa: I called the hospital. He has the day off, so he's probably out at the farm.
Felicia: You -- you plan to go out there?
Lisa: Do you think I shouldn't?
Felicia: No, no. I think that -- I think you have to do what you really need to do.
Lisa: That's exactly what I intend.
Michael: Well, thank you, Hilda. Mac, how are you?
Mac: Michael. Hilda, would you make sure we're not disturbed, please?
Hilda: Of course, Mr. Cory.
Mac: Thank you for coming so quickly. Please sit down.
Michael: My pleasure. My secretary said that it was urgent?
Mac: Yes, it is.
Michael: Is it about the takeover?
Mac: No, this is personal, I'm afraid. Michael, I just heard something terribly disturbing. Is it true that Vicky is pregnant with Jamieís child?
Michael: Yeah. I just found out about it myself.
Mac: Why didn't you call me?
Michael: Well, I was going to, Mac. It's just I've been very, very busy. Mac, look, we've been friends a long time, and I love my daughter very, very much, so Iíd appreciate it if you wouldn't criticize her.
Mac: But why on earth should I criticize Victoria?
Michael: Well, I don't know if you feel the same way as your wife, but Rachel has criticized her strongly.
Mac: Are you sure about that?
Michael: Yes. She's visited Vicky and Donna and made it clear that she doubts that the baby is even Jamieís.
Mac: Why on earth would she say a thing like that?
Michael: Mac, I don't know, but I know that Victoria is very hurt and Donna is very upset.
Mac: I didn't get a chance to call Rachel before I called you.
Michael: Wait a minute, Rachel didn't tell you this?
Mac: No, she didn't. Michael, I called you because I know how painful this situation must be for you. Rachel and I just went through it last year with Amanda.
Michael: Well, I know you did, and that's why I figured you of all people would understand. Mac, this is between Jamie and Victoria.
Mac: Yes, and they're the ones that have to straighten it out. Look, I'll try to get Rachel to keep out of it.
Michael: Thank you. And I'll talk to Donna.
Jason: Nicole, hi.
Nicole: Well, Jason. You're becoming a regular customer here.
Jason: I'm not here to buy something. I got to talk to you.
Nicole: What's the problem? Josie's changed her mind about her dresses?
Jason: No, there's no problem. Actually, I got to talk to Cass.
Nicole: Oh? What about?
Jason: A legal thing about a bid for Cory Publishing.
Nicole: Cass is out of town, Jason.
Jason: Well, if you give me his number, I'll call him and I'll save you any more grief, ok?
Nicole: Why don't you call Zack Edwards? He represents Cory, too.
Jason: I've already talked to Zack. Cass is the only one who can handle this. He and I understand each other.
Nicole: You do?
Nicole: Well, just the other day, you were warning me about him.
Jason: Well, he would probably warn you about me.
Nicole: Look, Jason, I'm sorry, but Cass is very busy right now. You'll just have to take your problem to someone else.
Jason: You're a big help.
Nicole: Well, I'm under no obligation to help you.
Jason: You can be just as arrogant as your mother could.
Nicole: I don't want to hear your opinion of my mother.
Jason: I loved your mom. She was a great lady. You keep acting like this, you might end up the same way she did.
Evan: I didn't mean to intrude. Liz just told me to come in.
Rachel: It's all right. I want to find out what you're up to.
Evan: Now, Iíve arranged another shareholders' meeting for tomorrow. I think we should keep them up to date with what's been going on.
Rachel: Well, will you handle that for me, please?
Evan: Well, I could, but I just thought it would be better if maybe you --
Rachel: You don't want to.
Evan: Well, things have been pretty shaky since the board asked Mac to step down. I think the members of the board would have more confidence in us if you were to handle the meeting.
Rachel: All right, fine. I'll schedule it in.
Evan: All right, now, Iíve taken the liberty of sending you the information you need to go over beforehand.
Rachel: What information is that?
Evan: You didn't get it? I asked Julie Ann to put it together for you.
Rachel: Evan --
Evan: Well, it's sitting right here.
Rachel: All of that? I've got to go through that by tomorrow?
Rachel: This is longer than "gone with the wind."
Evan: Look, if you don't want to, I could go over --
Rachel: Oh, my gosh! No, it looks like I have to.
Evan: Ok, now, all it is --
Rachel: So much for going home early.
Evan: Look, it's just financial reports and stock transfers that have piled up long before I was hired.
Rachel: Great, a little light reading.
Evan: Look, Mrs. Cory, I could probably handle that meeting by myself.
Rachel: It's all right, Evan. I'll do it myself.
Evan: I guess you're just probably used to making your own hours.
Rachel: I'm used to hard work, Evan. This is too important to Mac to slough off. I'll do it.
Evan: Right. We must make sure that he doesn't lose this company.
Rachel: We're going to make sure of that, Evan. Thank you very much. I'll talk to you later.
Vivien: Mr. Cory! Oh!
Mac: I couldn't believe the news when Hilda told me you were here!
Vivien: Mr. Cory, you haven't changed a bit!
Mac: Oh, you need glasses, girl. Come on in. Let's sit down and be comfortable.
Vivien: Oh, Mrs. Wheeler told me I must never sit down while talking to my superiors.
Mac: That sounds like Iris. But since there are no superiors in this house, we both sit down. Now, how are you?
Vivien: I'm just exactly the same as usual.
Mac: And is Iris all right?
Vivien: She's the same, too.
Mac: Vivien, what's the matter?
Vivien: Well, she's fired me.
Mac: Oh, my dear, I'm so sorry. She let you go? When?
Vivien: Last week. And she was so angry that she wouldn't let me get a word in.
Mac: Oh, what did you do, Vivien?
Vivien: Well, I never did find out. And she was so hysterical that she wasn't making any sense.
Mac: You're right. Sounds like Iris is the same.
Vivien: And, also, she wouldn't give me my paycheck. And, also, I called her several times on the telephone and she slammed the receiver down in my ear, just like that.
Mac: All right, now. Don't you get yourself upset here.
Vivien: I can't help it. And, also, she's not going to give me a reference. I don't know how Iím going to get another job without a reference.
Mac: You don't worry about it. We'll get you a job. Let's -- you met Hilda, didn't you?
Mac: Well, do you know that she was just saying to me the other day she needed some help right here?
Vivien: Oh, Mr. Cory!
Mac: How about it?
Vivien: Oh, Mrs. Cory!
Rachel: Vivien! Vivien: I'm so happy to be here! You're not going to regret this, not even for a minute!
Rachel: She's still the same cyclone, isn't she?
Mac: Oh, can you believe it?
Rachel: Just what am I not going to regret, Mac?
Mac: I hired her to help Hilda.
Rachel: Oh, Mac. Do you think we can take that kind of hectic around here?
Mac: Well, you know, Iris fired her, and she's distraught. She has no place to go.
Rachel: Mac. Just remember, we have a household budget, you old softie.
Mac: Rachel --
Mac: Lisa told me about Vickyís pregnancy.
Rachel: Mac, I didn't know how to tell you.
Mac: How long have you known?
Rachel: I didn't want you to worry anymore, Mac. You've got so much on your mind.
Mac: It's bad enough my board of directors shuts me out from my professional life, now my wife shuts me out from my family life!
Michael: Nicole, I'm sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. I had to talk to Mac about something.
Nicole: No, it's ok.
Michael: Well, you sounded so upset on the phone.
Nicole: Oh, I don't know who else to turn to, Michael.
Michael: Well, what's wrong?
Nicole: Well, I'm worried about Cass. I haven't -- I haven't talked to him or heard from him since I left him in Atlantic City, and that was, like, two weeks ago.
Michael: Well, has anyone else heard from him?
Nicole: Well, not that I know of. Felicia's worried, too. We're beginning to think that something has happened to him.
Michael: All right, all right. Look, don't panic, ok? Now --
Nicole: All right.
Michael: Do you know why Cass would go to Atlantic City and not come home?
Nicole: Well, I think it has something to do with Mac Cory.
Michael: Now, did Cass tell you that?
Nicole: Well, no, but he left, you know, to come back to Bay City to talk to Mac while we were still in Atlantic City.
Michael: Did he tell you why he did that?
Nicole: Well, he mentioned something about the takeover.
Michael: Oh, well, Nicole, if this has anything to do with the takeover at all, no wonder he's being secretive.
Nicole: No, I think it's more than that, Michael.
Michael: And why do you think that?
Nicole: Because people keep asking about him.
Nicole: Jason Frame. He was here today. He wanted to know how he could reach Cass.
Michael: You didn't tell him, did you?
Nicole: Of course not. I don't know. But if I did, I wouldn't tell Jason.
Michael: Now, what could Jason possibly want with Cass?
Nicole: Something about a bid at Cory Publishing that needs approval.
Michael: Well, Cass doesn't have anything to do with that with Mac.
Nicole: I know that, and that's why Iím scared.
Michael: All right. Look, John would know if they have any bids going on with Cory Publishing.
Nicole: And if they haven't?
Michael: If they haven't, I'll hire a private detective and I'll make sure that Cass is all right, and the private detective will find out what is going on here. Is that all right?
Nicole: All right.
Michael: I don't want my favorite sister-in-law worried for no reason.
Jason: You look like you've been in a coal mine.
Jamie: Thanks a lot.
Jason: What have you been up to?
Jamie: Working in the garden.
Jason: You really like it out there, don't you?
Jamie: Yeah, I enjoy it.
Jason: Well, it takes all kinds.
Jamie: You know, Jason, I would think that you would like it yourself, being as you grew up in a farm.
Jason: I do sometimes. But when I went in the navy, I swore I would never do regular chores around here again.
Jamie: Yeah? Well, then why did you buy this place, Jason?
Jason: It was Steveís place. I wasn't going to let somebody else live here. Frames need a home.
[Knock on door]
Lisa: Jamie. May I come in?
Jamie: Of course. Come on in. I've been trying to get a hold of you.
Lisa: I know.
Jason: I'll go upstairs, all right?
Jamie: How are you?
Jamie: You look beautiful. But then, you always look beautiful.
Lisa: I have something that belongs to you.
Jamie: No, Lisa. No, no. No, no, no. No, I can't take that back.
Lisa: I can't keep it, Jamie.
Jamie: Lisa -- Lisa, I gave you that ring because I love you. I still love you. Lisa, no matter what happens, I can't take back my love. I can't take back that ring.
Lisa: You're making this very hard for me.
Jamie: Well, I'm sorry I am. Lisa, you keep that ring. Lisa, you look at that ring every day and remember how much I love you and how much you love me. Lisa, we're not finished. We're not finished with each other. Not until the day I die.
