Vicky: Oh, this old man
Amanda: He played three
Vicky: He played knick-knack on my knee with a knick-knack paddy whack
Amanda: Give a dog a bone
Vicky: Oh, this old man came rolling home well, what's next? I -- I don't know anymore. Do you?
Amanda: That's all right. I think three verses is quite enough.
Vicky: I think so. You don't seem too thrilled with that song, now, do you, Alli?
Amanda: Oh, no, she loves to be sung to.
Vicky: Oh, I see. Uh-huh.
Amanda: Come here, cutie. Watch your hands.
Vicky: Thanks. What happens when you get angry at the daddy of your kid? I hope our child is as beautiful as Alli.
Amanda: Oh, don't mind beautiful. Just hope that they sleep a lot at first.
Vicky: What -- I thought they slept all night through after the first few months.
Amanda: The first few months can be a very long time when you're not getting any sleep.
Vicky: Oh, yeah, I get your point. Hmm.
Amanda: Hmm. You know, though, it's true that there isn't a feeling that's more wonderful and more sweet than holding your own baby in your arms.
Vicky: I hope I feel that way.
Amanda: Oh, you will. I know you will. Your baby will be the best thing that could ever happen to you, next to meeting your --
Vicky: Husband. You were going to say "husband," right?
Amanda: I'm sorry.
Vicky: No, Amanda, it's ok. I face the likelihood that Iím not going to have one.
Amanda: You may be wrong.
Vicky: You think so?
Amanda: You know, your baby is going to be Alliís cousin, her first one?
Amanda: And she's also going to be my mother's second grandchild. Now, that's got to mean something.
Vicky: Yeah, to you, maybe, but not to your mother.
Amanda: My mother has been known to change her mind. Not very often, I admit, but it could happen.
Vicky: Well, until it does -- if it ever does -- Amanda, I don't want to cause any problems between you and your family, and I think that, under the circumstances, we should end our friendship.
Jake: Well, I'm going to clean these up and then roll out the opening shots of the documentary.
Vince: Uh, you going to be working on that all day?
Jake: Yeah, pretty much. Why?
Vince: Well, I was wondering -- if you and Marley wanted a four-star lunch, I'm thinking maybe you ought to come by Maryís place.
Jake: Oh, not today, Vince.
Vince: Corned beef and cabbage a la McKinnon?
Jake: Oh, I've got to take Marley into the hospital.
Vince: Oh. Something wrong?
Jake: No, she's just having another fertility test.
Jake: She's pretty desperate about having a baby.
Vince: It's not absolutely sure that she can't conceive?
Jake: Well, that's what the doctor says in California, but Marleyís not going to take no for an answer.
Vince: Well -- well, how about you?
Jake: How about me, what?
Vince: Well, maybe it's your fault.
Jake: What are you talking about, my fault?
Vince: Well, I don't mean "fault." I mean, maybe -- maybe it's your problem.
Jake: Wait a minute. Are you trying to say that we might not be able to have a baby because of me?
Vince: Well, it's been known to happen. You know, I mean, they do have tests for men.
Jake: Yeah, I've heard.
Vince: Well, even if it wasn't your problem, wouldn't it make Marley feel better to know that you took a test, too?
Mac: She's working a 14-hour day, Ada.
Ada: I hear her going to bed late.
Mac: And it's hard work, detailed work.
Ada: Well, she's got a lot of energy.
Mac: But she looks tired, extremely tired.
Ada: Rachel can handle it, Mac.
Mac: I should be able to help. I should be able to go into the office a couple of hours a day for her.
Ada: Forget about it. The board said no, so it's no.
Vivien: I got it!
Ada: Oh! That voice would shatter glass from here to Saskatchewan.
Vivien: Oh, I'm so glad to see you! Dr. Jamie Frame, M.D.
Mac: Thank you, Vivien. Hello, Jamie.
Jamie: Mac, grandma.
Ada: Smile when you say that, doctor.
Jamie: It's not a day for smiles, grandma.
Ada: Sorry about that.
Mac: What is it, Jamie?
Jamie: Lisa gave me back my ring. She doesn't want to see me anymore.
Mac: I'm sorry, Jamie.
Ada: Well, women are funny about engagements, you know? They'll give you the ring back one night and take it back the next day.
Jamie: Can't tell you how much I wish that were true.
Jake: Look, Vince, Marley is the one with the problem, not me.
Vince: Well, you are now a doctor?
Jake: The doctor in California said that Marley will probably never conceive.
Vince: Yeah, but you didn't buy that.
Jake: No, not 100%, I didn't.
Vince: Well, it's only 100% when all the tests are known, including yours.
Jake: Why are you bugging me with this?
Vince: Look, aren't you the guy who said you'd do anything, go anywhere?
Jake: Yes, but --
Vince: Well, so go! Do! Jake, look, listen to me. Pride can be a man's worst enemy. I mean, it can eat away at a marriage if you don't watch out for it.
Jake: And you think I'd let that happen?
Vince: Oh, no, no. You're too smart. It's guys like me who have to learn the hard way. Hey.
Jake: Vince, you and Mary have a super marriage.
Vince: Now. But years ago, when things weren't going well for me, pride kept me from facing up to things that were too tough to look at. So I drank.
Jake: That's not going to happen to me.
Vince: Oh, I didn't think it'd happen to me, either, but it did. And I lost Mary.
Jake: You're saying I'm going to lose Marley?
Vince: Are you willing to risk it?
Jake: Man, you sure are making me feel great today, aren't you?
Vince: Oh, hey, hey, you're right, don't listen to me. I mean, you're going to do the right thing.
Jake: Ok, Vince, Iíll talk to Mary today and I'll have her make an appointment at the hospital for me.
Vince: You probably would've done that without me saying anything.
Amanda: You really think that I would stop being your friend?
Vicky: The thought crossed my mind.
Amanda: Vicky, no. I'll always be here for you.
Vicky: Amanda, do you know how much your mother resents our friendship?
Amanda: Well, I can work that out with her.
Vicky: Can you really?
Amanda: We've already agreed to disagree on your baby.
Vicky: And what about Jamie?
Amanda: He avoids the subject altogether.
Vicky: He doesn't talk about it at all with you?
Amanda: No, not anymore.
Vicky: Oh, wow. I thought everyone was talking about me and my baby.
Amanda: Most people, I guess, have their own problems.
Vicky: Well, my problem has become other people's problem. Lisa breaks off the engagement, Jamieís miserable, your mother's hostile towards me, and Felicia --
Amanda: Wait a minute. What did my mother say?
Vicky: She told me that Jamieís not the father of my child.
Amanda: Oh, that is not fair. Vicky, Iím so sorry.
Vicky: No, it's all right. It's all right, Amanda. It's just a mother trying to protect her son.
Amanda: Well, she shouldn't have to. Jamie is a grown man. He can protect himself.
Vicky: I wish I could figure out a way that he would protect me.
Amanda: Just give it time.
Vicky: I don't have that much time, Amanda.
Amanda: Well, just a couple of days, a week --
Vicky: Yeah, and then what?
Amanda: Then tell him how you feel. Tell him what you need. Just be honest with him.
Vicky: And then what if he still avoids me?
Amanda: Give him more time. But, look, don't pressure him. Because he and I are just like our mom. We don't budge under pressure.
Vicky: Yeah, I'll keep that in mind. Oh, no. Oh, no.
Amanda: What's wrong?
Vicky: Amanda --
Amanda: What is it?
Vicky: I have a feeling --
Amanda: That nausea?
Amanda: Do you want a couple crackers?
Vicky: No, it doesn't work for me. I'm going to have to get my doctor to think of a new idea. I'm going to see her today. Oh, man.
Amanda: Ok, how about lying down?
Vicky: Yeah, good idea.
Amanda: Here, put your feet up.
Vicky: Oh -- yeah --
Amanda: Ok, there.
Vicky: Yeah, thanks.
Vicky: Oh --
Amanda: Oh, this -- this feeling will pass in a couple of months.
Vicky: I certainly hope so.
Amanda: And then you'll feel terrific.
Vicky: If I can stop being afraid.
Amanda: Afraid of what?
Vicky: Amanda, I'm -- Iím always afraid that something is wrong with my baby.
Amanda: Oh. Don't you hate that?
Vicky: What, you know the feeling?
Amanda: Oh, Vicky, Iím sure 90% of pregnant women have gone through that. That feeling can eat you up if you let it.
Vicky: I just wish I knew.
Amanda: Look, just concentrate on that beautiful baby that you are going to have. It'll make it all worthwhile.
Mac: The day Amanda was born was one of the happiest days in my life. Remember, Ada?
Ada: I thought we were going to have to lock him up.
Mac: It made everything else in life seem trivial.
Jamie: You know, I've heard the same thing from other guys.
Ada: Did they tell you about the responsibility that goes with it?
Mac: And that's true, too.
Ada: This is a tiny, little, helpless life we're talking about.
Jamie: Grandma, I am a doctor. I have seen newborn babies.
Ada: Did you take one home with you?
Jamie: No, not yet.
Ada: Do you really want to get involved in raising a child?
Jamie: Well, it's not that simple, grandma.
Ada: You know, I remember when Steve found out that you were his son. That was it. He'd do anything for you.
Jamie: Yes, I remember.
Ada: He made Rachelís life impossible, but he did that because he loved her.
Jamie: I remember that, too.
Ada: Steve always said that the most frustrating thing was part-time parenting. You think you can handle that?
Jamie: I'm willing to try.
Ada: What if Vicky marries somebody?
Jamie: Well, I don't want another man raising my child, if that's what you're thinking.
Ada: Well, I think that you had better start working something out with Vicky.
Vivien: Mail call! You got some pretty exotic stamps here, Mr. Cory. If you don't keep them, can I have them?
Mac: Of course, Vivien. Thank you, Vivien.
Vivien: There's one from Ghana, there's one from Singapore, and there's two from Romania.
Mac: Thank you, Vivien.
Vivien: It's ok.
Ada: Vivien, I've got some lunch warming up in the oven.
Vivien: Mmm. Is that what smells so good?
Ada: Yeah, it's for Rachel, and I have to baby-sit for Amanda. Would you take it out of the oven in 15 minutes?
Vivien: 15 minutes.
Ada: Yep. And take it to "Brava"?
Ada: Yeah. That's where Rachel works, in Macís office.
Vivien: Is that at the Cory complex?
Ada: That's right.
Vivien: That place is enormous.
Ada: That's why they call it a complex.
Vivien: I always get lost in places like that.
Mac: Come with me, Vivien. I'll get you a map of the complex. Then you can't possibly get lost.
Vivien: It's a deal.
Ada: Want to come to Amandaís with me?
Ada: Vicky lives across the hall.
Ada: You could stop in and say hello.
Marley: Oh, I hate all this waiting around time.
Jake: Me, too.
Marley: Let's leave, then.
Jake: Oh. Marley, we are going to find out how come we can't have a baby.
Marley: Well, we could do it another time -- say, a year or two.
Jake: Marley --
Marley: I'm serious, Jake. We have plenty of time. We're still young.
Jake: What are you afraid of?
Marley: The doctors here will say the same thing as the doctor in California, Jake. I'm never going to be able to have a child.
Jake: There is no such thing as "never" anymore. If you have a problem -- even if I have a problem -- there is still a way for us to conceive.
Marley: What do you mean, if you have a problem?
Jake: I'm getting tested today.
Marley: What for, sweetheart?
Jake: Infertility. Isn't that what we're here for?
Marley: Well, why should you go through something like that? You don't have anything wrong with you.
Jake: Honey, listen to me. We are going to go through this together.
Marley: Right. Ok.
Marley: Mary. Thank you so much for setting up these appointments for us.
Jake: Yeah, we really appreciate it.
Mary: I'm glad I could help.
Marley: Well, do we start the tests right away?
Mary: Not right away. First they have to do all that boring stuff about getting your history and your family's history and all of that.
Jake: Right. How long will that take?
Mary: I don't know. But if it doesn't take too long, they might start on the tests today. There are so many tests these days, and so many possible treatments if there's a problem.
Marley: Well, I hope none of them will be necessary.
Mary: I do, too. And that is, of course, another possibility. But isn't a comfort to know if you do need it, it's there?
Jake: Yeah. You're right.
Mary: Ok. I'm going to walk you down to Dr. Walsteder's office. But before we go, would you like to talk to me or discuss anything or ask anything?
Marley: Uh-uh, I can't think of anything. Can you?
Jake: Nothing off the top of my head.
Mary: Well, fine. Then after you have the tests, and after you've discussed the medical aspect with your doctor, if you want to, we could sit and discuss the problem -- if there is a problem -- and how it might emotionally affect your lives.
Marley: Well, I -- I hope that won't be necessary.
Mary: I do, too. Ok. You guys ready?
Mary: Let's go.
Lisa: I can't find it.
Rick: No, wait --
Captain: Ok, listen up.
Lisa: Oh, good morning, Captain.
Captain: I said listen up. Now, Iím going to say this one time.
Rick: We're listening, Captain.
Captain: Am I looking at you?
Captain: Now, this is for you, Grady. You're the public relations chief, right?
Captain: Good. So prepare for action right now. There's a documentary crew descending on us.
Captain: You heard me. Now, you're going to be the liaison between the director and the force. Understood?
Lisa: What are they going to be shooting?
Captain: They haven't told me yet. But it's your job to see that they don't make dopes out of us or something worse!
Lisa: Well, how do I do that?
Captain: By sitting on top of it. You get advance approval of the shooting script, the rough cut, the final cut!
Lisa: Captain, I don't know anything about documentaries.
Captain: Get a book from the library, then! Nobody here is going to teach you!
Rick: Ooh. Well, I think you better take a long lunch hour today, Grady. It's going to be the only break you get for months.
Lisa: I don't need a break. This is great.
Rick: Oh, come on.
Lisa: You bet! Now I have something to fill up my days.
Ada: Look who's here.
Jamie: She doesn't look too happy to see us, grandma.
Amanda: No, I am. Of course I am.
Ada: Well, I didn't come to see her anyway. I came to see my pal here, my beautiful little Alli! She doesn't talk back yet. Do you, sweetheart?
Ada: Oh! Look at this. She's grown an inch.
Amanda: Grandma, you just saw her yesterday.
Ada: Well, an inch a day. Hey!
Amanda: Do you want a cup of coffee or soda or something?
Jamie: No. No, actually, I came by to see if Vicky was here. Do you know if she's home?
Amanda: She just went out.
Ada: Oop-ee! I picked you up without asking mommy.
Amanda: That's all right.
Ada: Oh, it's all right.
Jamie: So -- so, where is she?
Amanda: She just went to the doctorís.
Jamie: Is -- is something wrong?
Amanda: No, no. It's just routine.
Jamie: She's ok, right?
Amanda: Other than the usual anxieties.
Jamie: Well, like what?
Amanda: Oh, she's worrying if the baby's going to be all right, will everything go smoothly --
Jamie: Oh, that's ridiculous. She's young and healthy.
Amanda: And alone.
Jamie: Now, Amanda, don't start in on me, ok?
Amanda: I just think you should spend more time with her, that's all.
Jamie: And you should stay out of it!
Amanda: She's my friend!
Ada: Hey, guys, knock it off. You're scaring the baby.
Jamie: Listen, I am only concerned about the baby. If I could help it, I'd never talk to the mother again.
Amanda: What'd I do?
Ada: Well, whatever it was, you don't win the diplomacy award of the year.
Amanda: Well, thank you. I feel much better now.
Ada: You know how your brother is when he's under pressure -- just like your mother. Hey -- hey --
Amanda: You know, I gave that exact advice to Vicky this morning? Maybe I should've listened to it.
Ada: You want some of my advice?
Amanda: I think I'm going to get it anyway.
Ada: If you try to influence Jamieís decision, you're only going to make things worse. Yeah? Right? Right? When you suffer
[Knock on door]
Evan: How's it going?
Rachel: I hope those aren't for me.
Evan: Yeah, I'm afraid so.
Rachel: Oh, Evan, come on! I haven't even made a dent in what you gave me last night!
Evan: Well, I had assumed that you would've taken those home.
Rachel: I did take them home. I couldn't get through all of that last night.
Evan: Oh, really?
Rachel: Evan, there is such a thing as a family life, you know -- or you would if you had one.
Evan: Well, that may be true, but, you know, running this company -- you have to read and evaluate these reports.
Rachel: I know that, Evan.
Evan: If it would make you happy, I would be glad to take some of this off your hands.
Rachel: It would make me very happy.
Evan: But might I remind you that I don't have the authority to make decisions based upon my evaluations.
Rachel: Are you asking for the authority, Evan?
Evan: No. What's the point? It's not my company.
Rachel: You're right, it isn't. I don't know how Mac coped with all of this all these years.
Evan: He's a very special man.
Rachel: Yeah, well, I'm just beginning to realize just how special. Isn't there some way we can work it out so he can at least make decisions around here?
Evan: Well, the board was very clear about that.
Rachel: All right, all right.
Evan: He's to stay out of Cory business until the charges are dropped.
Rachel: Right. More stock transfers. Look at this.
Evan: Are you certain these aren't duplicate records from other reports? I mean, it happens quite often. Come on, there's no way around it. Everything has to be read.
Rachel: Yeah, terrific.
Evan: Come on, Mrs. Cory. You can do it. You just have to allocate a large block of time.
Rachel: Get out of here!
Rachel: Get out --
Evan: Come on, you can do it. I'll see you later, all right?
Rachel: It's Mrs. Cory. I'm going to be out of the office for a while. I'll let you know when I get back. Don't go away!
Marley: Well, now, that wasn't so bad, huh? What is the next step?
Mary: Well, I guess it all depends.
Marley: Mary, I'm serious. What happens if I cannot conceive?
Mary: Oh, honey, Iím sure the doctor will explain all of that in detail to you.
Marley: I know, but can't you give me the slightest hint?
Mary: Well, gosh, I only know what Iíve read. I know that there -- there is artificial insemination. There are fertility drugs. There's in vitro fertilization. There are really incredible things going on these days.
Marley: All right, now, what happens if all of those fail?
Mary: Can we have a slightly positive attitude here?
Marley: Please, Mary. What happens if all of those procedures fail?
Mary: Well, I guess the bottom line is there is always adoption. But why are we even talking about this now? Let's -- let's not get into making plans or decisions until we know what your options are.
Marley: Ok. Thank you so much for helping us through this time.
Mary: I really am glad to be able to do it.
Marley: I guess it's just been extremely difficult for us.
Mary: I understand that. But think how lucky you are to have in Jake a husband who is willing to put aside the very well-known McKinnon macho to help make it easier for you.
Marley: Well, your nephew is one wonderful man.
Mary: I think a lot of what's good in him comes from knowing you. And I really, really believe that with the love that you have for each other, and a positive attitude -- if you want children, there will be children in your future.
Amanda: Hi, mom.
Rachel: Hi, honey. Is she awake?
Amanda: Oh, great. I don't even get a "Hi, honey, you look wonderful, I love your new jeans."
Rachel: Where is she? Where is she?
Amanda: She's with grandma.
Rachel: I'm grandma!
Amanda: My grandma.
Rachel: Oh. Oh. Well, I guess I have no excuse. I have to go back to work now.
Amanda: Hello? Spend time with your daughter, maybe? I know Iím not as cute and cuddly as Alli, but --
Rachel: Oh, honey, Iím sorry. I don't mean to ignore you.
Amanda: I know. It's just your work schedule, that's all. But every time you do stop by, Alli does get all of your attention.
Rachel: Well, that'll change. I'm sorry.
Amanda: Oh, don't apologize. I mean, there's no way you could spend time with everybody with that crazy work schedule of yours.
Rachel: I don't know how long Iím going to be able to go on doing it.
Amanda: Well, can't you ease up on yourself a little?
Rachel: And let Cory Publishing down?
Amanda: Well, maybe -- maybe you could use more help.
Rachel: I've got all the help I need. I mean, even Jamie has agreed to do some reading for me.
Amanda: You know, he stopped by this morning.
Rachel: Did he?
Amanda: Mm-hmm. He came by to see Vicky, but she wasn't around.
Amanda: Let's not get into it.
Rachel: I don't understand why he has to get involved with her.
Amanda: She is having his child.
Rachel: Yes, I know. We know that.
Amanda: I don't understand how you can be so callous about this.
Rachel: She's making him miserable!
Amanda: She's not exactly on cloud nine.
Rachel: Well, she brought it on herself.
Amanda: You can't be sure of that, Mom.
Rachel: Boy, she's really gotten you fooled, hasn't she?
Amanda: She's done no such thing.
Rachel: She's using you to get to Jamie.
Amanda: She's not using anybody. All she needs is a friend.
Rachel: She's never needed one before.
Amanda: She happens to be having a very difficult pregnancy. Now, this child is going to be part of our family. If you don't start forgiving Vicky now, you aren't even going to know your own grandchild.
Rick: Mrs. Fowler, this is Rick Graham.
Amanda: Yes, what is it?
Rick: Well, I still have a few questions to ask you about the Marsten case.
Amanda: Look, this isn't a very good time.
Rick: Well, I could come over there if it's more convenient.
Amanda: No, no. I'll come down to the station.
Amanda: As soon as I can get there.
Rick: Ok, I'll see you then. I'll try not to take up too much of your time.
Amanda: Yeah, right. Bye.
Rachel: You're going over to the police station?
Amanda: Well, detective Graham has not exactly given me much of a choice.
Rachel: I'll go with you.
Amanda: No, I don't want you to get upset. I'll go alone.
Rachel: Well, then go over and see Zack first, ok? You shouldn't go over there and be questioned without consulting with him first. Do you understand?
Rachel: Eager about Sam? What does that mean?
Evan: Well, Caroline wants to exhibit his work.
Rachel: Oh, that'd be terrific. But you don't need my ok for that.
Evan: Well, her Chicago gallery has no space. She barely has enough room to show the artists that she already handles.
Rachel: Where are you going with this?
Evan: Well, she needs to expand and she has no cash. That's the bottom line.
Rachel: No expansion, no Sam?
Evan: I'd hate for that to happen.
Rachel: Well, so would Sam and Amanda.
Evan: She's very proud of his work.
Rachel: I see where this is going. Money is what is needed here, right? On her behalf?
Evan: A loan at almost any terms would be acceptable.
Rachel: Will you co-sign the loan?
Evan: Me? Of course! I mean, that gallery is going to be a huge success, and so is Sam.
Rachel: Sam's artwork would have to be prominently displayed, not in any back room.
Evan: Well, Caroline might go for a private showing if she knew that all the right people would be there.
Rachel: That could be arranged.
Evan: Then it's a done deal?
Rachel: You'd have to guarantee that no one would know I was involved in this.
Evan: Oh, I understand that completely. And you have my word on it.
Rachel: All right, have the papers drawn up.
Evan: Right away. And I've taken up enough of your time, and I'll let you get right back to work. If you'd like, I could stay here for a little while and we could do some of this work together.
Amanda: I'm afraid I couldn't get a hold of my attorney.
Rick: No problem.
Amanda: Well, I'm not about to answer any questions without him being here.
Rick: Well, these will just be general questions, minor stuff.
Amanda: I know my rights, officer. I don't have to cooperate, and I wonít. So don't bother wasting your time.
Lisa: Rick, Delaneyís on the warpath. He's looking for you. Amanda.
Amanda: Hello, Lisa.
Rick: Well, I'll be back, I hope. Oh -- please don't leave, Mrs. Fowler.
Lisa: I'm sorry you have to go through this, Amanda.
Amanda: Yeah, so am I.
Lisa: Rick's basically a good guy. This is his first big case. He's eager.
Amanda: He's also rude, abrasive, and very, very wrong.
Lisa: I know you don't have anything to do with Marstenís disappearance.
Amanda: No one in my family did.
Lisa: I know that.
Amanda: I've got to get going.
Lisa: Rick did ask you to stay.
Amanda: Look, I shouldn't have come down here in the first place. I didn't have to.
Lisa: Look, Amanda, he'll get a court order if you leave. You might as well just stay and get it over with.
Amanda: You know, there is something that's been bothering me, Lisa.
Lisa: Oh? What's that?
Amanda: Why didn't you tell Jamie about Vickyís pregnancy when you first found out?
Lisa: You'd make a great cop, Amanda. That's quite a question.
Amanda: Didn't you think he deserved to know?
Lisa: I didn't know how to break it to him.
Amanda: Well, you made a bad situation worse.
Lisa: I know that, Amanda.
Amanda: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to come across being so smug.
Lisa: It's ok. It's over now, so I might as well tell you my side of it. I believe Vicky got pregnant deliberately to take Jamie away from me.
Amanda: I know Vicky pretty well, and I really don't think she's capable of doing that.
Lisa: Well, you may know her pretty well, but I know her very well. Vicky doesn't do anything unless it's to her advantage. And that includes making a friend of you so she'll have an ally in the Cory family.
Vivien: I got here as soon as I could --
Rachel: You startled me, Vivien.
Vivien: And now it's cold.
Rachel: What's cold?
Vivien: I'm not sure, but when I took it out of the oven it was real hot.
Rachel: Lunch? Mom made me lunch?
Vivien: And she's probably going to blame me because now it's cold.
Rachel: It's not your fault. How long have you been waiting for me?
Vivien: Too long.
Rachel: Great. Anybody come in looking for me?
Vivien: Nary a soul, Mrs. Cory.
Evan: Excuse me. May I come in?
Rachel: No, not if you're going to give me more papers to read.
Evan: Well, this should only take a couple of hours.
Rachel: Evan, you're drowning me in paperwork!
Evan: I'm sorry, but I thought we agreed not to complain about being overworked.
Rachel: I didn't agree. You might've agreed, I didnít.
Rachel: Oh, sorry. Evan Bates, Vivien Gorrow.
Evan: Nice to meet you.
Vivien: You look like someone.
Evan: I beg your pardon?
Rachel: Vivien works for us at the house.
Vivien: I wish Iíd remembered my glasses.
Evan: Well, I'll let you get back to --
Vivien: Mrs. Wheeler!
Vivien: Mrs. Wheeler had a friend just like you.
Rachel: What are you talking about?
Vivien: That's where I know you from -- New York City.
Evan: You must be mistaken. I -- I don't know any Wheelers.
Vivien: Well, I could be wrong. Lord knows it's happened before.
Rachel: Vivien is nearsighted.
Vivien: That's deeply personal, Mrs. Cory.
Rachel: Sorry, Vivien.
Evan: Excuse me. I'll let you two get back to what you're doing. I'll talk to you later, Mrs. Cory, and it was nice meeting you, Vivien.
Vivien: Well, I'll let you get back to work.
Rachel: Oh, no, no -- stay, stay. Keep me company while I eat. Oh, thanks. Oh, boy. Well, now you can tell me what's been going on with Iris.
Caroline: Hello, there.
Caroline: I'm looking for Sam or Amanda Fowler, please.
Ada: Well, they're not here right now. I'm taking care of the baby.
Caroline: Well, can I leave a note, please?
Ada: Sure. Can I get you a pencil and paper?
Caroline: Thanks, I've got some in my bag.
Ada: What are you looking at?
Caroline: Oh, am I disturbing you?
Ada: Oh, no, no. I'm Amandaís grandmother, Ada Hobson.
Caroline: Oh, forgive me! I'm Caroline Stafford. Lovely to meet you.
Ada: Uh-huh. What do you want Amanda and Sam for?
Caroline: Well, actually, I'm interested in exhibiting some of Samís paintings. I've got a Chicago art gallery.
Ada: You are?
Ada: No kidding! What a terrific idea!
Caroline: Well, listen, make sure you tell him I stopped by, ok?
Ada: Oh, sure, I will. Hey, do you have to go so soon? I mean, would you like a cup of tea? I'm having one.
Caroline: Oh, I tell you, I really would like to sit down for a minute.
Caroline: Thanks a lot.
Ada: Ok. The baby is finally taking her nap.
Caroline: Oh, I'll be quiet, then.
Ada: Oh, don't worry about it. Alli can sleep through anything.
Caroline: Oh, that's fantastic. It's really great. I mean, look at the composition.
Ada: Yeah, I love that, too.
Ada: I've been kind of hinting at it for a birthday present, but --
Caroline: You know, Samís a very talented young man. Here?
Ada: Go ahead. He's also a very nice young man.
Ada: How do you like your tea?
Caroline: Oh, nice and strong, thanks.
Ada: Just like me. Good.
Caroline: So you really love Samís work, too, Mrs. --
Ada: Hobson, but you can call me Ada.
Ada: Oh, I sure do love Samís work. So does my daughter, Rachel. She's an artist, too.
Caroline: You're Rachel Davis' mother. Of course.
Ada: You know who she is?
Caroline: I admire her work, too. I just saw her the other day at "Brava."
Ada: That's my girl.
Caroline: You must be really proud of her.
Ada: Well, I'm very proud of all of my family. Especially my beautiful granddaughter --
Ada: Who just walked in the door?
Amanda: Caroline. I wasn't expecting you.
Caroline: Just a spur-of-the-moment, darling.
Amanda: Well, I'm sorry I wasn't here.
Caroline: Oh, look, I'm not -- Iím not fussed at all. I met your lovely grandmother.
Ada: Well, the compliments are flying.
Caroline: Now, look, I've really got to go now.
Amanda: Well, when could we be hearing from you?
Caroline: Well, I tell you what -- if I really am interested in representing him, I'll call you in a couple of days, ok?
Amanda: And what if you're not?
Caroline: Look, you're going to hear from me either way, ok? Look, bye-bye. I've got to run. And sorry about the tea, but I've really got to make it.
Ada: Oh, it's my pleasure. Another time, Caroline.
Caroline: See you later, Amanda.
Amanda: Bye. Thank you.
Caroline: Bye-bye, now.
Amanda: Isn't she great?
Ada: Yeah, she's ok.
Amanda: Well, you were all smiles.
Ada: Well, I was being P.R. for Sam. I mean, I hope she buys a lot of his pictures.
Amanda: I know. So do I. I'm hoping for a lot of things.
Ada: How'd it go at the police station?
Amanda: Well, I couldn't get a hold of Zack, so Rick postponed the questioning for a while.
Ada: Honey, that Marsten case is going to fall apart. I mean, what kind of case have they got? They haven't even got a body.
Amanda: That's just the point. I don't understand.
Ada: What don't you understand?
Amanda: I think there's more to this than what they're telling.
Rachel: What was it about Evan that reminded you of Iris?
Vivien: Well, she had a lot of young men in her social circle -- in her inner-inner social circle, if you know what I mean.
Rachel: Oh, got the picture.
Vivien: I guess you two still aren't close.
Rachel: Delicately put, Vivien.
Vivien: Thank you.
Rachel: You think Evan really knows Iris?
Vivien: I'm not sure. There were so many men that were coming in and out of that house. There were tall men, there were short men --
Rachel: You think Evan was one of them?
Vivien: He may not be the guy.
Rachel: Oh. What guy?
Vivien: Well, Mrs. Wheeler was closer to some men than she was to other men.
Rachel: How close?
Vivien: Mrs. Cory --
Rachel: This could be very important to me, Vivien.
Vivien: That close, ok?
Rachel: Got it. Evan reminded you of one of those?
Vivien: Yeah, but you know how I am. Sometimes I mix things up.
Rachel: Yeah, that's right, you do.
Vivien: Anyhow, Mrs. Wheeler tried to keep that part of her life private from me, but I'm nobody's fool.
Rachel: No, you're a quick one.
Vivien: And I pride myself on knowing everything that's going on in a house. Oh, don't worry, Mrs. Cory. I wouldn't be nosing in your beeswax. Besides, you're not anything at all like Mrs. Wheeler.
Rachel: You're right, I'm not.
Vivien: Oh! Holy smokes! I have to get back because I promised Hilda Iíd spell her this afternoon.
Rachel: Ok. Bye.
Vivien: This might be dessert.
Mac: I'm glad I found you. I wanted to have a little talk.
Vivien: You're going to let me go because I'm clumsy and because I put my feet in my mouth.
Mac: Hold it, Viv. Nobody thinks that about you.
Vivien: Mrs. Wheeler frequently does.
Mac: Relax, Viv. Take a deep breath. Now, come and sit down.
Vivien: Are you sure this is all right?
Mac: Why shouldn't it be?
Vivien: Well, Mrs. Wheeler --
Mac: Vivien, you don't work for Iris anymore, remember? Now, come on, sit down. Tell me all about her. How is Iris?
Vivien: Well, she doesn't change much.
Mac: Does she ever, ever mention me?
Vivien: Oh, no!
Mac: Would it be all that tragic if she did?
Vivien: Your name is forbidden in the house.
Mac: Ah, yes. I was afraid of that. Still --
Vivien: I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said that.
Mac: It's all right. She's probably never forgiven me -- even after all these years -- for not telling her she was adopted.
Vivien: She does hold a grudge, sir.
Mac: Yeah, well, it's a pity. It's a real pity.
Vivien: She's become a different woman, though. Really, she has.
Mac: Really? In what way?
Vivien: Well, ever since she got to know who her real mother was, she's become, I think, a better person.
Mac: But from what you've said, she doesn't sound all that different to me.
Vivien: Well, I think I tend to provoke her more than most people.
Mac: No, no, you mustn't blame yourself. I shouldn't say it, but Iris was always rather self-centered, huh?
Vivien: Yeah, she still is that in many ways, and she also has a lot of tantrums, but I don't think that she's as stuck up with people who aren't as lucky.
Mac: Well, that's real encouraging, isn't it?
Mac and Vivien: I'll get it.
Vivien: Well, ok, I'll go see what Hildaís up to.
Mac: Mac Cory.
Drew: Same old confident voice.
Mac: Who is this?
Drew: A blast from the past, Mac -- the recent past.
Drew: Bingo. It's not every day you get a telephone call from a dead man, hmm? So, how's it going since I passed on? The Cory family having fun?
Mac: Where are you?
Drew: You don't really think Iím going to tell you?
Mac: Well, get back here and clear these charges against me.
Drew: Mac, your days of giving orders are over.
Mac: You're not going to get away with this, you know.
Drew: Oh, on the contrary, I already have. Everything's working just like it's supposed to.
Mac: I'm calling the police now.
Drew: I think that's a good idea. You tell them that the dead man called you. They'll think you cracked under the strain.
Mac: Now, listen to me, Marsten --
Drew: Oh, yeah, one other thing, Mac. Don't wait for your man Cass to come back to Bay City. You're never going to see that slug again.
Mac: What are you talking about?
Lisa: I have something that belongs to you.
Jamie: I can't take that back.
Lisa: I can't keep it, Jamie.
Jamie: Lisa, I gave you that ring because I love you. I still love you. Lisa, no matter what happens, I -- I can't take back my love. Lisa, you look at that ring every day and remember how much I love you. We're not finished. We're not finished with each other, not until the day I die.
Rick: This is your lucky day, Ms. Public relations.
Rick: I know the guy who's going to be directing this documentary. He's terrific! You're going to love working with him.
Lisa: Well, that's good. Delaney made it sound like a nightmare.
Rick: Oh, no, not with this guy. He's terrific. It'll be a breeze.
Lisa: Well, where is he?
Rick: Well, he's introducing himself to the guys at the desk. I told him you were in here. He's -- yeah, come on in here, buddy! Yeah, there's somebody you got to meet.
Jake: Rick -- we already know each other.
Amanda: What did the doctor say?
Vicky: Oh, I'm fine. So is my baby.
Amanda: See? Told you.
Vicky: Yeah. Her only complaint is that I haven't gained any weight.
[Knock on door]
Amanda: Well, I certainly wouldn't worry about that. I think you look great.
Vicky: Yeah, I wish I felt great.
Jamie: Is Vicky around?
Amanda: Yeah, she just got back from the doctor's.
Jamie: Hi, Vicky.
Vicky: Hello, Jamie. Nice to see you.
Amanda: I think that it's about time for Alli to have some fresh air. I can use some, too. So, we're just going to go for a little walk. Come here, cutie!
Amanda: Just a little walk around the building. Uh, I guess we'll be back in about a half an hour, so if I get any phone calls -- see you.
Jamie: Ahem. How are you?
Vicky: Physically, I'm fine. So is the baby.
Vicky: Jamie, is there something particular you wanted to see me about?
Jamie: Yes. Yes, there is. I -- we have to work out some kind of arrangement.
Vicky: What do you have in mind?
Jamie: Well, we -- we have to come up with a decision together, if we can.
Vicky: If you can, you mean?
Jamie: No, listen, I will try to put aside any antagonisms I may feel, and I hope you'll do the same.
Vicky: I don't have any antagonisms, Jamie.
Vicky: You're the one who's always angry.
Jamie: Yes, well, I have good reason. But in spite of that, I will -- I will make every effort to be pleasant from now on.
Vicky: Well, I'm happy to hear it.
Jamie: And I intend to be a part of my child's life before it's born and after.
Vicky: Our child, Jamie.
Jamie: And I've been thinking about names today for some reason for our child, and I want the baby to have my last name. What do you think?
Vicky: Well, I intended on giving it your name. I mean, everybody knows it's your baby anyway, and -- you know, unless you had any objections --
Jamie: No, no objections.
Vicky: Well, good. Then he or she will be a Frame.
Jamie: Now, as far as financial support is concerned --
Vicky: Oh, forget about that.
Vicky: Because I have enough money to take care of me and my baby.
Jamie: Fine. Then that covers it.
Vicky: No, it doesn't. Jamie, is that all you came to say?
Jamie: For now.
Vicky: Well, what --
Jamie: What about what?
Vicky: What about a commitment?
Jamie: I have just given you my commitment.
Vicky: To me, Jamie!
Jamie: No, that is not possible.
Vicky: I love you.
Jamie: I don't think you really do.
Vicky: Don't you think you could learn to love me in time?
Jamie: I don't want to love you.
Vicky: Well, then don't waste my time!
