Michael: Come on in. Through with it. I found out about it. He helped me stop her.

Matt: Janice wanted to murder Mac?

Rachel: She wanted Mitch --

Matt: She wanted Mitch to what, Mom?

Rachel: I wish Liz hadn't told you this. You're not going to be able to handle this.

Matt: Just tell me what they wanted to do.

Rachel: She wanted Mitch and she wanted money, so they planned this together.

Matt: Dad wanted to kill Mac?

Rachel: He couldn't go through with it. I found out about it. He helped me stop her.

Matt: How long ago was this?

Rachel: Many years ago, before you were born.

Matt: That means you and Mitch --

Rachel: I had to try and save Mac.

Matt: How?

Rachel: I didn't know where Mac was. Mitch knew, so I used Mitch to find Mac.

Matt: That's why I was born.

Matt's voice: That's why I was born. That's why I was born.

Vivien: For heaven's sakes.

Matt: Vivien, I didn't know you were here.

Vivien: Hilda really ought to take some vacation time now that I'm here.

Matt: What?

Vivien: She sent me up here to tell you that your father was here to see you, and she knows very well Mr. Cory went to Chicago this morning.

Matt: All right, I'm getting out of here.

Vivien: Don't worry, I'm going to tell her to get some rest.

Matt: No, no, no, you tell her you couldn't fine me. Don't tell anybody I was here, ok?

Vivien: Matt! Matty! Oh, for heaven's sakes.

Woman: That's it?

Drew: That's it.

Woman: So you boarded a private plane headed for Atlantic City, and you had no idea the police would find your disappearance a mystery or that Mac Cory would be charged with your murder?

Drew: Hadn't the foggiest.

Woman: That is so strange.

Drew: Isn't it, though?

Woman: Yeah, because I have someone here who may make you change your story.

Donna: Do you know I was up all night last night trying to figure out exactly the right things to say? And the only thing I could keep coming up with was just, "please, please, bring him home."

Rick: That might be all it takes.

Jake: Chris has Mikey somewhere out there. Donna, if she sees the look I just saw on your face, maybe she'll realize what she's doing.

Donna: What do you think?

Rick: Well, from what I hear, we're dealing with a basically decent woman who snapped. I think Jake’s right. Maybe if she sees you, she'll pull herself together and you'll get your boy back.

Donna: All right. All right, I'll do it.

Rick: Why don't you sit down right over here?

Jake: Yeah.

Donna: Maybe that would be better.

Jake: Ok, Donna, look right into the lens and talk to her. Talk to Chris. Tell her what she's doing, tell her what Mikey means to you, all right?

Rachel: Did you see Matthew?

Mitch: Yes, but not this morning. He left when he knew that I was here.

Rachel: I'm sorry.

Mitch: Are you? Why did you tell him?

Rachel: He didn't give me any choice.

Mitch: Couldn't you have at least called me first? Couldn't you have at least let me be here when you talked to him?

Rachel: Look, I know you don't believe this, but I was thinking of you.

Mitch: You were thinking of me? You tell him that I was involved with a woman that tried to kill Mac, and that's thinking of me?

Felicia: So I called the racing association president and I said to him, "Look, if I'm going to take over this entire place, I do not want to change my wedding dress in a tack room."

Lisa: And what did he say?

Felicia: He said, "No jockey ever complained of that before."

Lisa: Oh, Felicia!

Felicia: You know, if I had known it would be this complicated --

Lisa: Listen, you know, I'm sure it's going to be beautiful.

Felicia: Oh, honey, you're hating this, aren't you? I don't want to do something that's going to be painful for you.

Lisa: No.

Felicia: No, if you don't want to be in this wedding --

Lisa: Felicia, I love you, and I'm delighted to be in your wedding.

Felicia: Ok. I'll be good, I promise.

Lisa: All right, now, do I get to wear a pretty dress?

Felicia: Kind of pretty. No, of course you do. In fact, I want you to go see Nicole Love. She has some designs to show you, all right?

Lisa: What, right now?

Felicia: Not good? Bad time?

Lisa: Well, no, I have to go -- in fact, I have to be at work now.

Felicia: Oh, listen, before you go, what's happening with Mikey?

Lisa: Not much. We have no leads.

Felicia: Poor Donna and Michael. They must really be beside themselves.

Lisa: Yeah, well, Donna just sits there stony-faced with these huge, sad eyes.

Felicia: I feel bad. You know, I've really been angry with her lately.

Lisa: Oh, me, too, but I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

Felicia: Can you imagine having your child missing? She must be devastated.

Lisa: She is. I really feel bad for her, but she won't let me comfort her in any way, you know?

Felicia: Yeah. So does Vicky come to the station with her?

Lisa: Not so far. Jake says that she is having a lot of morning sickness.

Felicia: Hmm. So you're still working with Jake?

Lisa: Oh, I fought it tooth and nail.

Felicia: Yes, I know.

Lisa: But this documentary he's making, it could be really helpful for Mikey’s case. He got Donna to agree to make a taped plea to Chris and he's going to have all the television stations run it.

Felicia: Well, you know, he always was a pretty smooth operator.

Lisa: Yeah. In a way, he sort of reminds me of Jamie. He's so passionate about his work and the people he works with.

Felicia: Honey, what do you think? Do you think maybe you're doing the wrong thing by not seeing Jamie?

Lisa: No, I don't think that. I'm -- I'm --

Felicia: Lisa --

Lisa: What?

Felicia: You miss him. I know you do.

Lisa: Well, you know, maybe in a little time, I won't even think about him anymore.

Felicia: You really believe that?

Lisa: I have to. And I also have to get to work, and I will --

Felicia: Skipping out, aren't you? Ok.

Lisa: I'll call you about Nicole.

Felicia: Ok. All right, do. I want to know every dress she puts on you. All right?

Lisa: Ok, all right.

Felicia: Love you. Bye.

Lisa: Bye-bye.

Woman: What do you mean you two planned the whole thing?

Jason: I got him on a private plane under a phony name. I made sure nobody saw him get on it. Then I went back to his place to make it look like he'd been mugged, maybe even bumped off.

Woman: How did you do that?

Jason: I trashed the place, spilled some blood on the carpet. Mac Cory came in then.

Woman: Was that planned, too?

Jason: Well, we figured he'd come by after Drew missed the big board meeting, but we didn't know he'd show up that early.

Woman: What did you do when he did?

Jason: Hit him over the head. I put his fingerprints on the gun and I took one of Drew’s jackets and some I.D. and threw it in Cory’s lake.

Woman: All with Drew Marsten’s knowledge and approval?

Jason: Oh, yeah, you bet.

Drew: Oh, he's lying!

Jason: I got no reason not to tell the truth.

Drew: Man, you're immune to the truth.

Jason: I told Mac everything. He's not going to push charges against me.

Drew: Huh. How long did it take the Cory's and you to cook this one up?

Woman: What?

Drew: Look, my people are on the verge -- I mean, they are that close to taking over Cory Publishing. Obviously, Mac knows how easy it is to buy Frame off here. He's paid him to set me up!

Donna: Chris, please bring him back home. But -- but until you do, you take really good care of him. Um -- oh, yes, there's a special number that you can call, and you don't have to worry because you'll be able to get through, so please call it. It's 555-3434. Please call it. Please? I --

[Donna sighs]

Jake: That was great, Donna. That was really great.

Donna: I'm fine. I just pray to God it works, that's all.

Jake: Can I get you some water or something?

Donna: No, no, I don't need anything.

Jake: Look, I'm going to check this tape out, and I'll have it copied and messengered out, all right?

Donna: Yeah.

Lisa: Donna, I talked to the hospital earlier, and they have a set of footprints and fingerprints of Mikey from when he was admitted.

Donna: Really?

Lisa: Yeah, they're going to send them right over.

Donna: That's -- that's good. That's very good. Thank you.

Lisa: Everyone's doing everything they can to find him.

Donna: I know.

Rick: Finally.

Donna: What?

Rick: I just got off the phone with Chris' landlord. We might have a lead.

Donna: Oh.

Mitch: Couldn't you have called me? I mean, didn't you trust me to be with you when you talked to him?

Rachel: I just had to deal with him.

Mitch: So what did you tell him, everything?

Rachel: No. I just told him about you and me. Look, he's involved with the Frames now. He's involved with Josie. I couldn't tell him what happened to Janice.

Mitch: You must hate me when you think of all this.

Rachel: No, I don't hate you. And let's not deal with what we can't change.

Mitch: You shouldn't have told him.

Rachel: He didn't give me any choice. Look, he's going to be all right. He has you, he has me, he has --

Mitch: And he has Mac, I know.

Rachel: Yes.

Mitch: And I'm sure you and Mac have discussed this.

Rachel: Of course we have. Mac was like a father to him when you were away.

Mitch: When I was in prison!

Rachel: All right, you were in prison. I know why you were in prison.

Mitch: Ok, so what about Mac?

Rachel: Look, Mitch, Mac has always allowed you to be a father to that boy because he knows Matthew loves you.

Mitch: It's unbelievable. The best thing that ever happened to me came out of the worst time in my life, and now I'm sure there's no way he's going to want to have anything to do with me.

Rachel: I won't allow that to happen.

Mitch: No, why?

Rachel: Because you're his father and he needs you. Look, he'll forgive you.

Mitch: Have you?

Rachel: After all these years, yes, I think I have.

Jason: Mac Cory never paid me a dime.

Drew: Oh, he does righteous indignation rather well, don't you think?

Woman: Your accusations seem pretty far-fetched, Mr. Marsten. I don't think you'd prove it in court.

[Intercom buzzes]

Woman: Yes? Ok, tell him I'll be right out. I have them right here. Ok.

Drew: Nice, Jason. Nice little story. Only you left out one part.

Jason: What did I leave out?

Drew: About the pictures you took of Amanda Cory and myself.

Jason: What about them?

Drew: When you were cleansing your soul, did you tell Mac Cory about them, too?

Jason: Yeah, of course I did.

Drew: Oh, and he was, just like that, ready to forgive you just because you were so, so sorry, huh?

Jason: Mac is a gentleman. I'm sure you don't know what that word means.

Drew: How about Rachel Cory? How did she take all this good news?

Jason: Well, gentlemen don't always necessarily marry ladies, do they?

Woman: How's it going?

Drew: Swell. Get him out of my sight.

Woman: Mr. Frame, you may go.

Jason: Thanks.

Woman: Ready to change your story?

Drew: Why would I be?

Woman: In view of how Mr. Frame will testify.

Drew: This guy would say anything for a buck. You're going to find that out.

Woman: I could talk to your attorney. We might be able to figure out --

Drew: Oh, no, I'm not copping a plea.

Woman: Think about it, Mr. Marsten. It could go a lot easier for you.

Drew: I want to call my lawyer.

Woman: Sure. Use my phone.

Drew: Right. While half a dozen assistant D.A.’s take down every word a say?

Woman: I can assure you everything you say will remain confidential. Nobody will be listening.

Drew: Oh, yeah? Does that include you?

Woman: Be my guest.

[Door closes]

Drew: Yeah, give me the chief, quick. Chief? It's me. Yeah, I'm in jail. Looks like I'm going to be here a while. I need your help. Get me out of here. Then we'll get Jason Frame.

Rick: Chris' landlord took her garbage out before we got to her apartment.

Jake: What did you find?

Rick: All kind of shopping bags and boxes. I mean, it's obvious she was ready to -- I'm sorry, Mrs. Hudson.

Donna: That's -- that's all right.

Jake: Does -- does he remember the names of any of the stores?

Rick: Well, the only one he could say for sure was Carlson’s department store, so I'm heading over there now.

Donna: Why are you doing that?

Rick: Well, if we could find out what she bought, it might give us some idea of where she took the kid.

Donna: Mikey. He has a name, you know! It's Mikey!

Rick: Sorry. I -- Mikey.

Jake: Who's going to go over and question the people at Carlson’s?

Rick: I am. Lisa, you want to come with me? You got a better way with people.

Lisa: Fine.

Jake: I'm going, too.

Rick: No, Jake, I don't want you pointing that camera at people while I'm talking to them.

Jake: Well, then I'll just have to keep my distance, won't I?

Rick: No, no, no, I don't like it.

Jake: Delaney said I'm supposed to shoot every phase of this investigation, Rick.

Rick: All right, but you just stay out of my way, ok?

Jake: Right.

Matt: All right, I'll take these to my jeep.

Josie: Matthew --

Matt: No, no, no, it's all right. We can drive them to your mom's stand, and then we can --

Josie: You haven't talked about anything but these stupid pumpkins since you got here.

Matt: Well, I like these stupid pumpkins.

Josie: Why aren't you at school?

Matt: What, are you trying to get rid of me?

Josie: You know I'm not. But school's important, Matt. I mean, you can't just cut out when you don't feel like going.

Matt: Listen, I'm not in the mood.

Josie: Matthew, this is a great opportunity you've got here. I mean, a lot of kids can't even --

Matt: I couldn't concentrate, all right? I'm sorry.

Josie: I'm -- I'm sorry, too. I didn't mean to lecture you. I just wish you'd talk to me.

Matt: I wish I could. I don't know what to say.

Josie: I know you're upset about your mom and dad.

Matt: My dad -- my real dad -- he stopped by today to see me. I couldn't -- I had to leave. I couldn't even look at his face.

Josie: Matthew, that's not going to solve anything.

Matt: You don't understand, Josie.

Josie: But I'd like to.

Matt: I don't know why you put up with me. I'm no fun to be around anymore.

Josie: Look, Matthew, I know you're hurt, but missing your classes and not talking to anyone -- that's going to hurt you a lot more.

Matt: Can we just change the subject, please? Just change the subject.

Josie: I want to help.

Matt: You help me. You help me by just being here. You're the only person I can be with.

Josie: Then trust me. And don't shut everyone out, please?

Ronnie: Donna?

Donna: Hmm.

Ronnie: I just wanted you to know how sorry I am. We all are, all of us who took care of Mikey at the hospital.

Donna: Thank you. You did a wonderful job.

Ronnie: We're praying for you.

Donna: You're going to have to excuse me. I need to go take a walk.

Ronnie: Right. I said the wrong thing, didn't I?

Zack: Oh, no, no, she's been like that all day. I mean, she won't go home. She won't even sleep.

Ronnie: Oh, poor woman. What a dreadful thing to have to go through.

Zack: Yes, it is.

Ronnie: So, you here on business?

Zack: No, I just came over to see how Donna was doing.

Ronnie: Oh, well, aren't you a nice guy.

Zack: Well, as I live and breathe, a compliment from you.

Ronnie: Am I that bad?

Zack: No. I dropped by the Pelican Club the other night. They said you weren't going to be singing there for a while.

Ronnie: Yeah, we're understaffed at the hospital, so I'm pulling extra shifts.

Zack: Well, when this crisis is over, you think you'll have time to have dinner with me?

Ronnie: No.

Zack: Hey, hey, hey, wait. I thought we were getting along.

Ronnie: Well, it's not that. I just don't have time for a social life right now.

Zack: But –

Officer: Now, look, Glen, get down there and get that information as soon as possible. The longer that kid's missing, the less chance we have of ever finding him. Now go.

[Classical music plays]

Vivien: Mrs. Cory?

Rachel: Yes, Vivien?

Vivien: I know you told me not to bother you while you were working.

Rachel: Yes, I did.

Vivien: There's this Mr. Edwards here.

Rachel: Did you tell him that Mr. Cory's in Chicago?

Vivien: Yes, ma'am. He said he wanted to see you.

Rachel: All right.

Vivien: Great.

Zack: Thank you. Hi, Rachel.

Rachel: Hello, Zack. Come on in and sit down.

Zack: Thank you for seeing me so soon. I know how busy you are.

Rachel: Is this about Mac?

Zack: Uh, no. John Hudson came to see me yesterday. He wanted to know why the hospice board canceled its contract with Frame Construction.

Rachel: What does this have to do with me?

Zack: Well, you are a part of the board, aren't you?

Rachel: Yes.

Zack: Didn't you take part in the decision?

Rachel: We reviewed the progress of the hospice.

Zack: Mm-hmm.

Rachel: It's common knowledge that Frame Construction is behind schedule.

Zack: Well, isn't that usual for buildings like this?

Rachel: Not in my experience.

Zack: So you recommended that Frame Construction be replaced?

Rachel: I merely pointed out that Frame Construction may be inexperienced in this kind of a project, and the board agreed with me.

Zack: Including Liz Matthews?

Rachel: What is this about? Are you representing John? Is he bringing charges against me?

Zack: Oh, no, no. Of course not. Listen, Rachel, I understand how you feel about Jason Frame, but --

Rachel: You are Mac’s attorney. You know what we went through because of Jason.

Zack: Yes, I do. But John Hudson wasn't part of that, Rachel, and the vets who are working for him don't deserve this.

Rachel: I have nothing against John, although I do believe that he ought to have a different kind of business partner.

Zack: I see. So you won't change your mind?

Rachel: No. I have absolutely no interest in Jason Frame succeeding.

Clerk: Yeah, that's him. Now, there is no way that child is going to be in a 3t by December, and this was a heavy outfit.

Rick: How'd she seem?

Clerk: What?

Rick: How was she treating the kid?

Clerk: Oh, fine, fine. Bought him everything he picked up. Never did let go of his hand.

Rick: So she bought him a lot of stuff, huh?

Clerk: I told you -- I told you, $500 worth.

Rick: How'd she pay for it?

Clerk: Cash. Here, I got the sales slip right here.

Rick: Great.

Clerk: And I took the liberty of pulling duplicates of everything she bought. I thought maybe --

Rick: Thank you.

Clerk: Maybe your camera would like to get some close-ups of these things.

Rick: Yeah, well, that's not necessary.

Lisa: They all seem to be very heavy play clothes.

Rick: Uh-huh.

Lisa: Nothing dressy.

Rick: All right, well, I guess we got everything we need.

Lisa: Ok. Jake, you want to meet us back at the station?

Jake: Yeah. Look, Rick, can I ask her a couple questions?

Rick: You?

Jake: Well, if you want, I'll write it down on a piece of paper and you can ask her.

Rick: Go ahead.

Jake: Hi.

Clerk: Hi.

Jake: Did she have shopping bags with her, stuff that she had bought from other parts of the store?

Clerk: No, I don't think she did.

Rick: Ok, thank --

Clerk: But I could check, you know. You know, maybe she put them in her car before she came up here.

Rick: For crying out loud.

Lisa: It's a good idea, Rick.

Jake: I think it is.

Rick: All right. Let's go, Ms. Carmichael.

Lisa: That was a good question.

Jake: Yeah, well, I don't know why he didn't think about it.

Lisa: He made up his mind what he was going to find out and he wasn't open to new ideas.

Jake: That's his job, Lisa, isn't it?

Lisa: Hey, take it easy on him. He's had a hard time since the Marsten case.

Jake: I just don't want to see him blow this like he blew that.

Lisa: Listen, you're very quick to judgments.

Jake: The guy's a friend of mine, Lisa, but a spade is a spade. He blew it! I can tell I'm winning a lot of popularity contests with you, aren't I?

Lisa: Look, we have to work together. We might as well speak honestly.

Jake: I guess.

Lisa: You were very good with Donna this morning. She was a nervous wreck, and you handled her very well.

Jake: Thank you.

Rick: Hey, you guys, I just talked to the captain. He's going nuts.

Lisa: Why?

Rick: I told him about the fishing tackle.

Lisa: What fishing tackle?

Rick: Well, it does seem Chris bought two sets of fishing tackles from the sporting goods section -- one for an adult, one for a kid. Don't just stand there. Get your stuff together. Let's go.

Felicia: Ok. It's not too bad, either, is it? Hi, honey.

Mitch: Hi.

Felicia: Guess how many pages I did today.

Mitch: I don't know, tell me.

Felicia: 12.

Mitch: 12? That's very good.

Felicia: 12? It's a miracle. Are you kidding, the way I type? And you know what? It's pretty good, too.

Mitch: Very, very good.

Felicia: Listen, you know, I had an idea. I thought maybe we should dress up tonight and go out somewhere special and go celebrate, but I don't know, then I thought I've been cooped up all day. I think what we should do is do something casual. Maybe we could go down to the dock, you think, and find one of those little shacks and have some fried clams?

Mitch: Yeah, that's good.

Felicia: Aw. You had an awful day.

Mitch: No.

Felicia: Yes, you did, Mitch.

Mitch: No, actually, I've been driving around trying to come up with a way to tell you something.

Felicia: What?

Mitch: Something I should've told you a long time ago, something that's going to change your feelings about me.

Felicia: Honey, nothing could make me do that.

Mitch: No, no, no, no, this might. This -- this could.

Felicia: Does this have to do with the problems you're having with Matthew?

Mitch: Yeah.

Felicia: This isn't just a teenage thing he's going to get over, is it?

Mitch: No, this is not about him. This is about me.

Felicia: What do you mean?

Mitch: You remember I told you about Janice Frame?

Felicia: Yes?

Mitch: I didn't tell you everything.

Mitch: When I was involved with her, she tried to kill Mac. And I guess -- I guess I tried to help her.

Jamie: Jason. You have blueprints on the floor.

Jason: Doesn't matter. I can't work it.

Jamie: Sorry. Am I disturbing you?

Jason: No, you're not disturbing me, Jamie. Tell me, your patients do as well as your vegetables out there?

Jamie: I hope so.

Jason: Ok.

Jamie: So how's the hospice coming?

Jason: You're the director. I would think you would've heard by now.

Jamie: Heard what?

Jason: Frame Construction's no longer on the project.

Jamie: I thought things were going fine. What happened?

Jason: Why don't you ask your mother?

[Car approaches]

Jamie: Jason, I know she's on the board, but she wouldn't do something like that.

Jason: Yeah, I wouldn't be so sure if I were you.

Jamie: Now, come on, Jason.

[Car door closes]

Jason: In fact, now is a very good time to ask her. She just pulled up.

Jamie: Now wait a minute, stay here and talk to her with me.

Jason: I am not in the mood to talk to your mother today!

Jamie: Well, hi, Mom.

Rachel: Hi, honey.

Jamie: Come on in.

Rachel: Thanks.

Jamie: So you finally got some time off from "Brava," huh?

Rachel: Is Matthew here?

Jamie: Uh -- I think he's off doing something with Josie.

Rachel: Oh. Well, do you have a minute?

Jamie: Of course I do. Want to sit down?

Rachel: Ok. So, what have you been up to?

Jamie: Well, just working in the garden.

Rachel: Is that what the Frames have to offer you, working in the garden?

Jamie: What they have to offer is that they're my family.

Rachel: I'm your family, too.

Jamie: Mom, I --

Rachel: Honey, I rely on you. I hardly ever see you anymore.

Jamie: I'll drop by tomorrow.

Rachel: I wish you'd drop by permanently.

Jamie: Mom, I'm not moving back. We've been over this before.

Rachel: Yes, but things have changed.

Jamie: What things?

Rachel: I'm not comfortable with you being here with Jason.

Jamie: I can handle Jason. Why are you so upset with Jason?

Rachel: I'm more than upset with Jason.

Jamie: Why?

Rachel: Why don't you ask Jason? If we're lucky, maybe he'll be honest for once.

Jamie: Mom, I am tired of refereeing this game between you and Jason. Tell me, what happened?

Rachel: Have you tried talking to Jason about it?

Jamie: Yes.

Rachel: What did he say?

Jamie: Not very much.

Rachel: That doesn't surprise me.

Jamie: But what he did tell me is that he lost the contract for the hospice wing. Were you responsible for that?

Rachel: Yes, in a way, I was.

Jamie: Why?

Rachel: Jamie, I wouldn't have done something like that if I didn't have a good reason.

Jamie: What could possibly be a good reason, putting all those people out of work just to get even with Jason?

Rachel: That wasn't the intention.

Jamie: But that's what's happened.

Rachel: I will do something about it.

Josie: Mama!

Sharlene: I'm telling you, I did.

Rachel: Matthew.

Matt: I'll see you later.

Rachel: I would like to talk to you. Matthew?

Sharlene: Why don't you go pick the rest of these before supper?

Josie: But, mama, Matthew’s upset.

Sharlene: It sounds like Matthew needs to talk to his mother.

Josie: Well, can I please stay here and --

Sharlene: I want you to pick these before nightfall! They'll spoil! Now, I mean it. You can call him later.

Josie: Fine. Fine!

Sharlene: Why was Rachel here?

Jamie: She wants me to move back home.

Sharlene: Well, you know something, honey, your mother and I don't see eye to eye on much --

Jamie: I know.

Sharlene: But in this case, I agree with her.

Donna: She bought him a fishing rod?

Rick: Yeah.

Donna: She stole my baby so she could take him fishing? Oh, come --

Jake: Listen, I'm going to drop these off at the television station. Is there anything new?

Rick: Not yet. Look, I've notified your husband and his brother.

Donna: Good. Thank you.

Rick: Ok, and John will be taking his boat out to check out the bayside fishing camps.

Jake: Well, I'm off.

Donna: Jake?

Jake: Yeah?

Donna: Listen, would you please call Marley and Victoria and tell them what's going on? I always seem to upset them.

Jake: I already did that.

Donna: Oh, well, thank you.

Jake: Yeah, I'll see you guys in a bit, huh?

Rick: Ok, well, this means we finally know where to look for Mikey.

Donna: Yes, and that's good.

Rick: Yes, it is, but there are a lot of lakes in the area, so don't expect results too quickly.

Donna: No, I won’t.

Felicia: Janice Frame. She was married to Mac, wasn't she?

Mitch: While we were having an affair.

Felicia: So you --

Mitch: Yes, we were having an affair before and during their marriage. She was in it for the money.

Felicia: So she tried to kill Mac for his money?

Mitch: She tried to poison him. She wanted a slow-acting poison so everybody would think that he had just gotten sick. And I guess I helped her get the poison.

Felicia: Why?

Mitch: Why? I don't know why. You know, I wasn't the same person. You know, I've asked myself that a thousand times. I just -- you know, I was involved with her. I went along with it. Mac was nobody to me. He was just a name. You know, what the hell.

Felicia: What happened?

Mitch: Fortunately, Rachel figured out what was going on and she was able to save Mac.

Felicia: But Rachel and you -- you had Matthew. You lived together.

Mitch: Yeah. Yeah, she helped me get me back to my senses. Matthew was born. I was in love. And here it is, so many years later, and we're together. I'm in love with you.

Felicia: Does Matthew know all of this?

Mitch: Yeah. Yeah, Rachel has talked to him about it. I talked to him.

Felicia: Have you talked to him since?

Mitch: I went by this morning, he wouldn't see me or talk to Rachel.

Felicia: She must be very upset.

Mitch: Are you?

Felicia: Mitch.

Felicia: You know, I, uh -- I can't stop loving you because of something you did before I ever knew you.

Mitch: That's all I wanted to hear.

Felicia: So, Matthew -- oh, lord, Matthew must be very upset. How did he find out?

Mitch: He heard some comment that Liz Matthews had made, some hint that something wasn't right when Janice and I were together. So he went to Rachel and she told him before he found out from anybody else.

Felicia: What is the story?

Mitch: Well, when Mac was in pretty bad shape, Janice took him to St. Croix so that there wouldn't be any questions. I followed them. Rachel knew something was going on and she followed me. She couldn't find Janice and Mac, but she ran into me. And I always had this thing for her, and she knew it. And she used it. She used me. She slept with me to find Mac before Janice killed him. She saved him, but she also got pregnant. For a while, Mac thought that, you know, Matthew was his. And then when he found out the truth, they split up. She really didn't have any place to turn, so she turned to me. She was pretty lonely then.

Felicia: Does Matthew know all of this now?

Mitch: Yeah. You know, he thought he was born in love, born out of love. Well, he was as far as I was concerned. I know that all of this with Rachel has upset you.

Felicia: Well, at least now I know why.

Mitch: Look, I don't know what to say. I know it's all very crazy. You know, I mean, it was like some thing -- like some sort of obsession or something. I mean, that's not what it is with us. With us, it's different. What I feel is love.

Felicia: Is there any more about any of it that I should know?

Mitch: Yeah. But it's not for me to say.

Felicia: Rachel, right?

Mitch: I'm sorry you had to hear all of this. I hope that you can forgive me.

[Knock on door]

Sharlene: Hey, Rachel.

Rachel: Is Jamie still here?

Sharlene: I thought you left with Matthew.

Rachel: Matthew didn't want to talk to me. May I come in?

Sharlene: Certainly. Rachel, I'm -- I'm sorry if something's wrong.

Rachel: Thank you. Is Jamie still here?

Radio announcer: This is Jack Foster with WBAY news on the hour. Local police believe they have a slight lead as to the whereabouts of a 2-year-old boy known only as Mikey. He was in the custody of Michael and Donna Hudson when he was abducted by a woman believed to have been his babysitter. Police declined to discuss details of what has been learned, but say they're hopeful. On the national news front --

Sharlene: Ooh, please let them find that little boy.

Rachel: Matthew feels terrible about this.

Sharlene: Oh, he couldn't have known.

Rachel: I remember when Matthew was kidnapped.

Sharlene: Matthew?

Rachel: By his father. It was a horrible experience.

Sharlene: And I always think of you as having it easy.

Rachel: Nobody always has it easy all of the time.

Sharlene: Jamie's upstairs packing.

Rachel: Packing?

Sharlene: Yeah, he decided he wanted to be out on his own again.

Rachel: What made him change his mind?

Sharlene: I don't know. Rachel, look, I know what Jason did to Mac is unforgivable.

Rachel: Yes, it was.

Sharlene: And I appreciate your not telling Jamie about it. But could I ask you, please, don't take it out on Josie?

Rachel: I have no intention of taking anything out on Josie. May I wait here for Jamie?

Sharlene: Sure. Sit down.

Jason: Jamie's upstairs packing. Why -- I know why he's going. It's obvious now. I thought you were gone.

Rachel: I came back.

Jason: You're not welcome here, Rachel.

Sharlene: Jason.

Rachel: I get no more pleasure out of your company, Jason, than you get out of mine. I'm just here to make sure that my children have no more to do with you or your family.

Jason: I said I was sorry about what happened with Marsten. I am.

Rachel: Nothing you can say, Jason, is going to make up for what you did.

Jason: Oh, you'll just do it for me, right, by putting Frame Construction out of business. I can understand you wanting to get even with me, but taking Steven’s company down with it --

Rachel: It's not Steve’s company, it's your company. This has nothing to do with Steve.

Jason: Well, it has nothing to do with John Hudson or all the guys that we give jobs to, either. It's between you and me!

Rachel: Yes, you're right, it is.

Jason: Right.

Rachel: And if I ever find out that you do anything more to anyone that I love --

Jason: What, is there something else you can do? You've taken the hospice project away. What else is there?

Rachel: I don't know, Jason. Why don't you try me and find out?

Rick: That's right, John. We've got squad cars going into every camp that you can't reach by water. Yeah, no, I told them that. We don't want to alert her.

Lisa: Donna, can I get you something to eat?

Donna: No, thank you. I'd just like to be left alone, if you don't mind.

Lisa: Of course.

Rick: Good luck. Hudson's searching the bay area. Michael's got a chopper hired, and I've got teams of squad cars all over the place checking every fishing area in this part of the state.

Lisa: Good.

Rick: You know, I'm thinking about sending Jake out with one of the squads, get him off our backs.

Lisa: Rick, Jake is trying to help us.

Rick: Yeah, well, I don't like his attitude.

Lisa: Why's that, because he thought of the fishing tackle idea?

Rick: I would've thought of that.

Lisa: Jake is working really hard. We should try to cooperate.

Rick: Wait a minute, you don't even like Jake.

Lisa: He's not my favorite person, but he's smart and resourceful and he's kinder than I thought he was.

Rick: Well, you've certainly changed your tune.

Lisa: Look, we can just at least give him a chance.
