Donna: Oh, why doesn't that phone ring?
Vicky: I know, I know. Why don't you just calm down, though?
Donna: I just want to hear some -- some news about my baby -- anything!
Vicky: I understand, but you know what happens? You're going to make me just as worried and crazy as you are if you keep going like this.
Donna: Oh, honey, I'm sorry. I am so sorry. I know how much you love Mikey, too. Listen, maybe you should go back to your place and try to get some rest.
Vicky: Yeah, I think I'm going to.
Donna: All right, all right, but call me. Let me know that you made it, though, safe.
Vicky: Ok. First, I'm going to stop by the Frame farm, so I'll just be a while.
Donna: Victoria, please don't get too friendly with those people.
Vicky: They're relatives of my baby, Mom.
Donna: They are not relatives to boast about.
Vicky: I'm leaving.
Donna: They are users, just like Marley’s husband.
Vicky: Please, can we not talk about Marley and Jake?
Donna: Would you stop defending him when you know he is straying from her!
Vicky: He is not going to have anything going on with Lisa.
Donna: I wish that were true, but I know what I heard.
Vicky: Well, sometimes you hear things that you want to hear.
Donna: Are you saying I imagined it?
Vicky: No. I'm saying that no matter what you do or say it's not going to split up Jake and Marley.
Donna: Victoria, he loved you once, remember? And he didn't think twice about dropping you for Marley.
Donna: I am right about him. You'll find out.
Mac: I feel as if I'm seeing you off to school.
Rachel: I wish you were.
Mac: I should ask Helen to pack your lunch for you.
Rachel: It's ok. Julie Ann will send out for something.
Mac: Well, I'm going to call her to see that she does. Rachel, I'm really worried about you.
Rachel: I'm worried about the board and why they haven't reinstated you.
Mac: Yeah, I asked Cass to check into it, but he hasn't come up with anything.
Rachel: Do you think there's some group in the board that's working against you?
Mac: Could be.
Rachel: Bennett Publishing's gotten to them, then.
Mac: I've been uneasy because they've been so inactive lately.
Vivien: Mr. Mitch Blake asks to see Mr. And Mrs. Cory. Oh!
Mitch: I thought I might have missed you. I'm glad you're here.
Rachel: What is it, Mitch?
Mitch: This letter that I sent to Matthew was returned to me unopened.
Rachel: I'm sorry.
Mitch: Is he here? I'd like to talk to him.
Michael: There's no sign of him anywhere. He should have been back here by now.
John: Well, that fishing camp's pretty far off.
Rick: I should have gone with them.
John: Chris would have recognized you.
Michael: Yeah, you questioned her after the break-in at my place.
Rick: That was months ago.
Michael: Jake, any sign of them?
Jake: I talked to some people who saw one woman with a boy that fit Mikey’s description. They rented a cabin. It's not far from here.
Jake: Earlier this week.
Michael: Are they still there?
Jake: Yeah, as far as they know. Looks like this is it, guys.
Donna: Chris, someone told me that you lost a baby of your own. I wish I'd known. You see, we could have talked, because I, too, lost a baby. I know how much it hurts. But taking someone else's child is not going to ease that pain. You know, I -- I go into Mikey's room and I see his little teddy bear there, the one he sleeps with every night. And then I look in his bed, and it's so empty. Please, Chris, would you bring him home? But until you do, you just take really good care of him. Yeah, I want you to know that there's a special number that you can call. And you'll be able to get through any time you try it, so please do call it. It's 555-3434. Please bring him home. Please, Chris.
Mac: Darling, I'm going to ask Liz to bring over some material to "Brava" so I can try to keep up with things.
Rachel: All right. You go ahead.
Mac: I'll be in the study if you want me. Mitch.
Mitch: I take it he'd rather not be around me.
Rachel: He's uncomfortable.
Mitch: I'm sorry.
Rachel: This situation with Matthew has dredged up all sorts of unhappy memories.
Mitch: No one knows that better than I do. I'm sorry.
Rachel: I know you are, but that really doesn't change anything, does it?
Mitch: Have you spoken with Matthew?
Rachel: I've tried to. He's taking it very badly.
Mitch: Yes, I know.
Rachel: He's cutting classes. He's spending all of his time with Josie at the Frame farm.
Mitch: Is that where he is now?
Rachel: If he's not here, that's where he is.
Mitch: I want to talk to him.
Rachel: Well, then, you're going to have to go up to the farm and see him.
Mitch: I don't want to see Janice’s sister or brother.
Rachel: Well, you've seen them since they've been back, haven't you?
Mitch: Yes, but somehow the subject of Janice has never managed to come up.
Rachel: It is peculiar, isn't it, that they've never mentioned it?
Mitch: Well, I just assume they don't want to talk about it as much as we do.
Rachel: I wonder if they even know what happened to her.
Mitch: Is that a possibility?
Rachel: Well, maybe they don't know how she died. I mean, the press was not very specific about it.
Mitch: You know, you might be right.
Rachel: In any event, if you want to talk to Matthew, you're going to have to go up and risk seeing Sharlene and Jason or both of them.
Mitch: Looks like I don't have any choice.
Rachel: Mitch, go easy on Matthew. He's very hurt and confused. We just have to let him know that we love him and that that's not going to change no matter what he thinks about us.
Sharlene: Hello, Vicky.
Vicky: Good morning. Is this a bad time?
Sharlene: Well, I'm kind of busy.
Vicky: Oh --
Sharlene: But, no. Come on in.
Vicky: I was just on my way to my grandma's and --
Sharlene: She must be worried sick about Mikey.
Vicky: Yeah, we all are. I'm sorry. I'm not going to waste any more of your time.
Sharlene: No, no. I'm just -- I'm just working on some pies for my boarders.
Vicky: You've got boarders?
Sharlene: Yeah, I've got a couple of college kids.
Vicky: Oh. Didn't know.
Sharlene: So, I could use an extra hand.
Vicky: Oh. Peeling apple-- oh, I -- I haven't done something like this since I was a kid and Bridget was teaching me how to do this. Oh.
Sharlene: So how are you feeling, Vicky?
Vicky: I'm worried about Mikey.
Sharlene: Yeah, I know. How's your mother holding up?
Vicky: Not too great. I haven't seen her this bad in a long time.
Sharlene: I wish there was something I could do to help.
Vicky: Thanks. But I think we've got to leave this in the hands of the police.
Sharlene: John says he's got his boat out; he's looking over all the bay-side fishing areas.
Vicky: Yeah, that's what my dad told me.
Sharlene: What is it?
Vicky: Did you learn to do this when you were little and you'd been practicing? You went so quick.
Sharlene: Look, I had to. It was either work in the kitchens or work in the field.
Vicky: So you all had different chores to do?
Sharlene: Yeah, we did. I did the baking. Emma put up preserves. That was between all our other chores.
Vicky: Wow. It must have been really amazing to have a huge family.
Sharlene: Well, yeah. I guess so. Think so?
Vicky: Yeah. You don't think so?
Sharlene: No. "Multiply all your problems by six." That's what Emma used to say.
Sharlene: But then, you multiply the good times, too.
Vicky: Oh, so what'd the boys get to do, huh?
Sharlene: Oh, oh, plenty, plenty. Milking the cows --
Sharlene: Yeah, yeah, planting the fields, mending the fences.
Sharlene: Oh, yeah. Work's never done on a farm.
Vicky: You wouldn't by any chance happen to have any pictures of them, would you? I would love to see some pictures of my baby's relatives.
Sharlene: Yeah, sure. Yeah, I -- I've got some photos right here. Josie was looking at this album last night, as it happens.
Vicky: It would mean a lot to me to look at them.
Sharlene: Well, having a baby brings family closer. You look at these. I'll go finish my pies.
Vicky: One sec. Who is this?
Sharlene: That's Willis. That's Willis.
Sharlene: He's learning to drive the tractor.
Vicky: Tractor? He's hardly 10 years old, I would think.
Sharlene: Yeah, you learn those things early on a farm. Yeah -- oh, and this is me with Janice.
Vicky: Oh, Janice is pretty.
Sharlene: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Janice was the prettiest of us all. Poor Janice.
Vicky: What happened?
Sharlene: She died young, years ago.
Sharlene: And this -- this is Steve, Steve with that devilish grin.
Vicky: Jamie's father.
Sharlene: Mm-hmm. Yeah, he's about 8 years old right here.
Vicky: Well, that means he's the grandfather of my baby. Well, ok, he's 8 there. Well, he certainly looks very proud of himself.
Sharlene: Oh, he was. He was, all right. Yeah, we all knew he'd go places, and he did.
Vicky: Oh, yeah?
Sharlene: Hmm. More drive than the rest of us put together.
Vicky: Well, I wouldn't mind if I had a son who looked like that.
Sharlene: Well, they say family resemblances skip a generation.
Vicky: They may be right. Would you mind if I had a copy of this picture?
Sharlene: Well, no, but I don't have the negative.
Vicky: Oh, that's ok. I could just take it to a photo lab or something. It would really mean a lot to me if you'd let me have it.
Sharlene: It's yours.
Vicky: Oh, thank you very much, Sharlene. You know, I think all blown up, it will look great on the baby's nursery wall, just to remind him that he had a grandfather.
Jake: Ok, I showed the photos to the guy in the camp office. He ID'd them. I guess the cabin's pretty secluded. That's what she requested.
John: Let's go.
Rick: Hold it. Wait a minute.
Michael: Wait for what?
Rick: We got to think this thing out. We don't want to blow it now.
Michael: Wait a minute. Think about what?
John: No, no. He's right, Mike. It's taken us days to get a line on them. Let's not blow it now.
Rick: And this cabin has got to be completely sealed off -- the doors, the windows. We got to cover every exit -- no possible escape.
John: All right, then what?
Rick: Well, we separate her from Mikey.
Michael: Wait a minute. She's not going to let him out of her sight.
John: You know, he's right. No, we can't just bust into the place. If she gets scared, there's no telling what she's going to do.
Michael: Ok, talk. Why don't we talk her out?
Rick: All right. Who's going to do that?
John: I think that's pretty obvious, isn't it?
Mitch: I may not get anywhere with him.
Rachel: But you can't give up.
Mitch: Rachel, he can be very stubborn, you know?
Rachel: I know. We have to get through to him, though.
Mitch: Look, I know that.
Mac: Oh, sorry. You're still here.
Rachel: We're just trying to figure out how to handle this situation with Matthew.
Mitch: Look, I'll be on my way. I'm sorry that all of this had to come up again.
Mac: We're all sorry, Mitch. But it's here. We have to deal with it somehow.
Mitch: I guess I should let you know that I've spoken with Felicia.
Rachel: You've told her everything?
Mitch: I thought she should know.
Rachel: How did she take it?
Mitch: Well, she was shocked to find out the person she's in love with could have ever been so different.
Mac: I hope you can work it out. We all have to. Otherwise, it's going to haunt us forever.
Mitch: Yeah, well, that's not going to happen. I will be going to the Frame farm as soon as I finish up at "Brava."
Rachel: Call me after you finish talking with Matthew.
Mitch: I will do that.
Mac: Mitch. I asked Liz to bring the material over herself.
Rachel: She's coming over here?
Mac: She's got some explaining to do, Rachel. For the life of me, I cannot understand why she would open up this family matter. She must have known it would devastate us!
Vicky: You know, you had that quiet, serene look even as a kid.
Sharlene: Well, no, no, no. I wasn't very serene inside, believe me.
Vicky: Yeah, well, maybe none of us were when we were that little. Let's move on.
Sharlene: Wait, wait. Wait. This is one I have always favored. This is Steve and me together.
Vicky: Look at your face.
Vicky: What a great look.
Sharlene: Well, I worshipped him. We all did.
Sharlene: Oh, oh. He wasn't like anybody else in the world.
Jason: So you're talking about me.
Vicky: Hey, Jason.
Jason: Hmm. Hi.
Sharlene: No, actually, I was talking about Steve.
Jason: Second best, as always.
Vicky: Why don't you get over here and look at some pictures with us, all right?
Jason: I was bored looking at those albums years ago, and if I have to look at another good old Oklahoma shot, I'll wring your neck.
Vicky: Are you kidding? I love looking at pictures, at old family pictures. They're wonderful. They just fascinate me. You can see how everybody looks alike and how they --
Jason: I'm glad somebody's fascinated with them.
Vicky: Well, you would be, too, if you were an only child, Jason.
Jason: I used to dream, hope that I would be an only child, Vicky.
Vicky: I always used to hope that I would have tons of brothers and sisters.
Sharlene: Well, your dream came true.
Jason: How come there's so many shots of Steve?
Sharlene: Well, I just happened to keep them, that's all.
Jason: And you just happened to dump mine?
Vicky: You know, Sharlene asked me to stay for dinner to look at all the albums that I want to.
Jason: Oh, that's great. We could have a "praise Steve" party. How about that?
Sharlene: Jason was always jealous of Steve.
Sharlene: Still is after all these years, huh?
Jason: Well, if that's the case, can we not talk about him anymore?
Vicky: No, can we please talk about him? I want to hear everything about the grandfather of my baby.
Jason: Well, I'd just be careful about what you believe, because sisters have a way of glamorizing their big brothers, you know?
Sharlene: Oh, come on, Jason.
Jason: It's the truth. You always made him out to be some kind of God, but he was human. He had faults, just like we do, maybe more.
Sharlene: What are you so angry about?
Jason: I'm not angry. I'm just tired of hearing how great Steve was.
Sharlene: Well, you should be grateful to him.
Jason: For what?
Sharlene: For making life easier on all of us. Come on, he gave Willis and me jobs in his company. He bought this farm for us.
Jason: He bought the farm for himself. He had neglected his family for so many years he felt guilty about it, so he bought the farm to get rid of the guilt feelings. That's --
Sharlene: And maybe you forget that he started the company --
Sharlene: You got his son to turn over to turn you.
Vicky: Come on, you guys.
Sharlene: Steven was a kind-hearted, loving human being.
Jason: Loving he was. He loved so many different women -- that was the problem. He destroyed their lives because he couldn't make up his mind which one he wanted to stay with.
Vicky: Ooh, like father, like son.
Vicky: Jamie –
Mac: I just don't know what got into Liz.
Rachel: She gossips, Mac.
Mac: After all these years, surely she must know better.
Rachel: Well, she's certainly opened up a Pandora’s Box now.
Mac: Well, you and I and Mitch and Felicia will handle it somehow. I'm just not sure about Matthew.
Vivien: Liz Matthews says you expect her, sir.
Mac: That's right, Vivien.
Liz: Thank you, Vivien. Good morning. Traffic is absolutely crazy out there.
Rachel: I don't know how you can face us after what you've done.
Liz: What did I do?
Rachel: You know perfectly well what you did.
Liz: No, I don’t.
Mac: Let me handle it, darling.
Liz: Why is Rachel so furious?
Mac: You really don't know, Liz?
Liz: No. I'm trying to think.
Mac: Well, try thinking about what you said to Matthew the other day.
Liz: Oh, that.
Mac: You told him about his father and Janice Frame, didn't you?
Liz: It slipped out. I was talking about the whole frame family. I didn't think. I tried to explain --
Mac: Because you didn't think, what we have so painfully put behind us after all these years is now making all of us miserable again.
Liz: Oh, dear. Oh -- Mac, I am so sorry. I --
Mac: And worst of all, you've hurt most the one who is the most innocent.
Liz: I never intended to hurt Matthew or to hurt any of you, believe me. I --
Mac: I believe you, Liz, but that does not help the situation that you've created for Matthew.
Liz: Perhaps I could talk to Matthew and explain --
Mac: Oh, no, no, no. Please, not again.
Liz: Talk to Rachel?
Mac: No, I wouldn't advise that, either.
Liz: Oh. What do you advise?
Mac: Frankly, I'm out of advice for anyone on this mess.
Liz: Oh, dear. Mac, I -- I've never felt so terrible in my whole life.
Mac: Well, maybe you've learned something out of it, then.
Liz: I'll make it up to you all. I promise. Believe me.
Mac: How can you do that, Liz? Matthew is torn open by this. Thank you for the material. I'll get it back to the office before closing.
Matt's voice: You've really got it in for those --
Liz’s voice: Janice Frame, she's the worst of all. She took Mac right away from Rachel.
Matt: She did what?
Liz: She managed to marry Mac all the while she was having an affair with Mitch Blake behind his back. Oh. Ma-- Matthew? Don't pay any att-- I'm sorry.
Sharlene: Want some coffee?
Jason: I'd just like to be left alone.
Sharlene: What is it with you?
Jason: You caused a scene in front of Jamie.
Sharlene: Oh, I think it was you that was causing the scene.
Jason: Would you butt out? I got enough problems with the company going under.
Sharlene: Are things really that bad?
Jason: Look, the hospice project could have given us some jobs in the future we'd make some money on. Now we got nothing -- no hospice, no nothing.
Sharlene: Jase, you know what? There are going to be other projects.
Jason: Well, I don't see any right now. Rachel just shafted us, that's all.
Jamie: Sorry to interrupt.
Sharlene: Hey, Jamie, I want to apologize for all of us about --
Jamie: That's all right, Sharlene.
Jason: So you're really going to be leaving us, huh?
Jamie: I was hoping you'd stand up to your mother this time and stay with us.
Sharlene: Jason, don't start. Don’t.
Jamie: She had nothing to do with it, Jason.
Jason: Well, I'm glad to hear that.
Sharlene: Look, I'm going to go on upstairs and see that you didn't leave anything behind.
Jason: Does this mean we won't be seeing too much of you?
Jamie: Oh, I'll drop by from time to time.
Jason: Well, how about for dinner tonight? You want to stop by?
Jamie: No, no, I don't think so.
Jason: Well, why not? Vicky's going to be here.
Jamie: Oh, really?
Jason: Yeah. She and Sharlie got real chummy looking at all those pictures and she asked her to come back for supper.
Jamie: Well, enjoy yourselves, Jason.
Jason: No, no, no, no. Look, come on. Stop by, we'll have a family party, all right?
Jamie: No, I don't think it's a very good idea.
Jason: Hey, when the baby is born, she's going to be part of the family, guy.
Jamie: Well, that's for you to decide, Jason.
Jason: Lighten up. We would just like to get to know the girl better, that's all. Is there anything wrong with that?
Jamie: It's not necessary, Jason.
Jason: Vicky may not agree with you on that.
Jamie: Well, perhaps not. But that doesn't change my mind.
Jason: She was very friendly. Going through those pictures, she was really -- she was nice. She was asking a lot of questions about your aunts and uncles.
Jamie: Ja-- what are you driving at, Jason?
Jason: Vicky is a girl from a very high-class family. They got a lot of money. They treat us as equals.
Jamie: Oh, come on, Jason. No one thinks like that anymore.
Jason: Hey, you'd be surprised how people think these days.
Jamie: Well, why are you telling me all this stuff?
Jason: You know how many guys would give their eyeteeth to be able to spend the rest of their life with Vicky Hudson? Look, spend some time with her and see if you understand what I'm talking about.
Chris: Let's see. We do this and then we're getting out of here. Yeah, yeah. We're going to go where the sun shines. We're going to get out of all this rain and all this fog. You'll see. We're going to go where we're safe. You know, you're really going to love it there. Oh, Robbie. Oh, and you'll see how it will be. We're going to go where we can get back to where it used to be, where things used to be before -- before everything went wrong. Oh.
Chris: Shh, shh. Robbie, it's ok.
Chris: Mommy's here, Mommy's here, and daddy's going to be here soon. He's going to be -- and we'll be safe and -- oh, don't cry. Shh. Please don’t. There's nothing to be afraid of. Shh, shh. Don't cry, Robbie. Don't cry. Shh. Oh, baby. I know. Shh. Mommy knows. I know.
Chris: It's ok, Robbie. Mommy's scared, too. It's going to be all right, though. I promise you. Daddy will come for us, and then everything's going to be fine.
Chris: Daddy -- maybe that's daddy? Or maybe it's the Vietcong. Shh. You stay right here.
[Chris speaks Vietnamese]
Chris: Tony! Right, daddy came for us. I knew he would. Oh, Tony! I thought you'd never get here! Come in.
John: Hey. There's my boy, boy. Oh, yes. Yeah, it's my big boy. Yeah. Yeah.
John: Ah, yeah, that's my boy. Yeah, you're safe now.
Chris: Oh, Tony.
John: You're both safe.
Chris: I knew you'd come back.
John: Yeah, everything's going to be ok.
Chris: Oh. Oh, this gunfire has given me a headache.
John: Everything's going to be fine now. Come on, Mikey. It's time to go.
Chris: Mikey? You're not Tony!
Jamie: Just stay out of my life, Jason!
Jason: Jamie, I don't want into your life. Vicky does.
Jamie: That's none of your business.
Jason: Hey -- family is my business, and when the baby's born, that's going to be my business, too. He'll be family. So will the mother.
Jamie: I will deal with that when I have to!
Jason: How would you have felt if Steve had that attitude?
Jamie: We're not talking about my father, Jason.
Jason: Think your dad would have left you with your mother to bring you up, huh? You didn't answer me. I said answer me!
Jamie: All right.
Jason: "All right" what?
Jamie: All right, I see your point.
Jason: Fine. Why don't you stay and have supper with us, ok?
Jamie: Yeah, maybe.
Jason: Not maybe. Just do it. It's one night out of your life. Come on.
Jamie: Yeah -- all right, all right. I'll stay for supper.
Jamie: But she may not enjoy it any more than I will.
Jason: Well, maybe the two of you will enjoy it a lot. Look, Sharlie and I -- we won't make any waves at all. We'll put on our best parlor manners, as Emma used to say. Matt and Josie are going to be there, and you won't feel that you're kind of walking into enemy territory.
Jamie: Jason, I don't feel that way.
Jason: Well, with you, it's hard to know sometimes.
Jamie: You know, Jason, I understand that Matthew’s been around here a lot.
Jason: Well, does that bother you?
Jamie: Well, it bothers my mother.
Jason: Well, I'm sure, her fine, young gentleman son, spending a lot of time with a bunch of okies.
Jamie: Well, no, that's not why.
Jason: Then what is it?
Jamie: You're pretending you don't know?
Jason: I don’t.
Jamie: Oh, come on, Jason. She wouldn't have had your hospice contract canceled for no reason. I'm going to head that hospice, remember?
Jamie: I read the minutes to the board meetings.
Jason: Well, then, you know better than I do, don't you?
Jamie: What did you do that turned her against you like this?
Jason: She has always been against me, Jamie.
Jamie: Oh, come on, Jason. There's something else. What is it?
Jason: My name -- our name. That's all, that's all it takes -- which happens to be your name, as well. I just hope none of that poison has rubbed off on you, because you can't forget you are family, no matter what.
Chris: Robbie, I don't know where we're going.
[John speaks Vietnamese]
[Chris speaks Vietnamese]
John: No, no!
[John speaks Vietnamese] V.C.! V.C.!
Chris: No! No! No!
John: Oh! Oh!
Chris: No! You liar! Ow! Ah! Oh! You lied to me!
John: Oh --
Chris: Oh! Oh!
Chris: You --
John: No! Stop it, Chris! It's over!
John: No! It's over! It's over.
Chris: How -- how could you? How could you take my baby away from me?
John: It's not your baby, Chris. It's not your baby.
Chris: I love him!
John: I know you do.
Chris: Oh, Robbie! Robbie!
John: Chris, you just got confused.
Chris: Oh --
John: He's not Robbie.
John: He's not Robbie. He's Mikey. I'm John. I'm not Tony. You're just confused.
Chris: Oh, my God!
John: You're all right. You're all right.
Chris: Oh, my God! Oh, John! What's happened to me?
John: You're just confused.
Chris: Oh, no! Oh, please! Please. Please don't -- please don't hate me!
John: Oh, no, Chris.
John: I'll never hate you. You're going to be all right. You're going to be fine, I promise. I promise. Cry it out. Just cry it out.
John: I wish I could.
[Woman speaks Vietnamese]
[Chris speaks Vietnamese]
Rachel: Is Liz gone?
Mac: Yeah, a while ago.
Rachel: What did she say?
Mac: I did most of the talking.
Rachel: I never should have told Matthew the truth.
Mac: Rachel, don't start blaming yourself for that. After Liz told Matthew what she did, it was all bound to come out, darling.
Rachel: Yeah, maybe.
Mac: Matthew is a sensible young man and he's going to come to terms with this.
Rachel: It'll never be the same with us.
Mac: Rachel, you know that he loves you. Give him time. You remember how long it took us to get over that.
Rachel: Yeah, well, we had each other.
Mac: And he has us. Now, you be patient, however hard that is for you to do with him.
Vivien: Oh, excuse me! I'll come back!
Rachel: It's all right. It's all right, Vivien.
Vivien: Ms. Matthews is here again.
Rachel: I'll leave.
Liz: No, it concerns you, Rachel. Now, for the past several months, I have been considering leaving Cory Publishing and going somewhere else.
Rachel: Where would you go?
Liz: Well, I've invested in Nicole’s Love fashion salon, and I really should help her make a go of it.
Rachel: Is that what you really want?
Liz: I think it's in everyone's best interest if I -- ahem -- make that change now. My formal resignation.
Chris: John. Oh.
John: Hi, there.
Chris: Now, what if somebody comes in and sees us?
John: Oh. Don't worry about that. I did a thorough recon of the place. There isn't anybody within, oh, 500 yards.
Chris: You should have seen your face. You were so disappointed.
John: Well, I liked your other clues better.
Chris: Yeah, but that was the best clue, because then you knew when I mentioned something physical, what I wanted was a swim.
John: Yeah, but see, by that point, you were already in the water and I couldn't see you anymore.
Chris: Oh, well, I never thought about that.
John: Yeah. And I like seeing you, because looking at you is -- it's a lot of fun.
Chris: Oh. Nobody ever put it quite like that before.
John: Hey, how's Jason?
John: You're awfully lucky that I'm here tonight. You know that? Someone has to look out for you. You're awfully gullible.
John: Chris, we'll be going soon.
John: To a place where they'll help you put all this pain behind you.
Chris: Oh. Do you really think they can do that?
John: If you help them.
Chris: Oh, John. I'm so sorry.
John: It's ok.
Chris: No, it was wrong.
John: It's ok.
Chris: But I loved that little boy so much, so much. Oh, I loved him so much.
John: I know. I know.
Michael: Donna, we got him.
Donna: You have Mikey?
Michael: He's right here in my arms. Hey, hold on for a second. There's somebody I want you to talk to. You want to say hi to mommy?
Michael: Say hi.
Mikey: Hi, Mom.
Donna: Oh! Mikey! Oh, my baby!
Michael: Now, how does that sound to you, huh?
Donna: Oh, oh, it sounds like heaven! Would you please bring him home so I can hold him, too?
Michael: Ok. Well, we're on our way. I tell you what, though -- he's a little scruffy looking, so why don't you run a bath, all right? He is fine, though. I just wanted you to know that. So, you want to say bye to mommy?
Mikey: Bye-bye, Mommy. Bye-bye, Mommy.
Chris: "Bye-bye, Mommy." "Mommy."
Vicky: Can I help you with anything, Sharlene?
Sharlene: No, no. I want you to sit there and enjoy your dinner.
Jason: That was a fine one, too, Sharlie.
Vicky: Oh, it's fabulous. I haven't had a great home-cooked meal like this in I don't know how long. Isn't it great, Jamie?
Jamie: Yeah, it's really good. I thought Matthew and Josie were going to be here.
Sharlene: No. Well, they went to the movies before I had a chance to ask them.
Jason: No, yeah, I'm kind of happy that they didn't make it. It's a little cozier this way and gives you guys a chance to spend a little more time together.
Sharlene: Jamie, you want something more to drink?
Jamie: No, I'm just fine, thanks.
Vicky: You know what? I think that news about Mikey is just wonderful.
Sharlene: Oh, I know. Your mother must be on cloud nine.
Vicky: Oh, she sounds about 10 years younger. She really does.
Jason: I can't figure out Chris, though, really.
Sharlene: Jason, she's got problems.
Jason: Mm-hmm. That's an understatement.
Vicky: And mom said that she's coming in on the boat with John.
Sharlene: Poor Chris.
Jason: What, you feel sorry for her?
Sharlene: Yeah. She needs help, Jason.
Jamie: And she'll get it.
Jason: Yeah, until she pulls something like that again.
Vicky: You know, I think we should get off this subject because the important thing is that Mikey is safe --
Vicky: And at home. Don't you agree with me?
Jason: Hey -- hallelujah.
Sharlene: Jamie, are you all right?
Jamie: Me? Yeah, fine.
Jason: Well, you haven't eaten too much and you haven't said much, either.
Jamie: Well, I'm just saving room for your dessert.
Sharlene: Oh, good, my apple pie. I thought you didn't like my food.
Sharlene: What's left of it. My boarders got to it.
Jason: What do you mean? You let the boarders eat our dessert?
Sharlene: That's what they pay us for, Jason.
Jason: Well --
Sharlene: Anyway, there's plenty left.
Vicky: Do you think we could look at some of those photo albums before we eat dessert?
Sharlene: Sure. Be my guest.
Jamie: I thought you saw them all already.
Vicky: Well, I did, but I'd like to look at them with you, especially those great pictures of your dad.
Jamie: Well, why this fascination with my dad all of a sudden?
Vicky: I'm just really interested in him, that's all.
Vicky: Because he's the grandfather of our child and if -- if we have a boy, I'd like to name him Steven. What do you think?
Michael: Ok, buddy, we're home. Jake, wait, tell you what -- why don't you take him?
Jake: Why me?
Michael: Just do what I say, ok?
Jake: Come here, buddy.
Michael: There we go, partner.
Jake: What are you trying to do, rack up some extra-credit points for me?
Michael: No. You did that for yourself today. I'd just like you to cash in on them now.
Jake: Oh, yeah?
Donna: Mike -- oh, Mikey! Come here to me! Oh! Oh, I am so glad to see you! Oh, Michael, thank you!
Michael: Oh, don't thank me.
Donna: Thank you so much.
Michael: Don't -- no, no, no. It was really Jake and John. They're responsible for finding him. Now, you look a little dirty and a little hungry to me, so I'm going to take you and bathe you and then we'll visit the fridge and then maybe visit the cookie jar.
Donna: Oh. Jake, thank you. I will never forget what you've done.
Jake: Yeah, I'm just glad everything worked out for you, Donna.
Donna: Look, I -- I realize I have been extremely unfair to you. But things are going to be better from now on.
Jake: Well, I'm glad to hear you say that.
Donna: But you really don't believe me, do you?
Jake: Yeah. Sure, I do.
Donna: No, I give you my word. I will never interfere in your marriage with Marley again, ever.
Jason: Boy, that was some fine dinner, lady.
Sharlene: Yeah, well, I still don't think you should have pressured Jamie into staying with Vicky.
Jason: Why? What's the big deal?
Sharlene: The big deal is that Rachel Cory is not going to be too pleased when she hears about it.
Jason: Who cares what Rachel Cory thinks?
Sharlene: I care --
Sharlene: John, hello.
Sharlene: Come in.
John: Oh, it looks like I just missed dinner.
Sharlene: No, there's lots left. You want me to fix you a plate?
John: No, no. Really, don't go to any trouble.
Sharlene: It's no trouble for a hero. We heard about Mikey.
John: Ah. Yeah, that. How'd you hear about it so soon?
Sharlene: Well, Vicky was here for dinner and she called her mother.
John: You had Vicky here for dinner?
Jason: Yeah. Jamie, too. She's going to name the kid after Steven if it's a boy. How's that grab you?
Sharlene: Well, it's a little calculating, if you ask me.
Jason: You're going to turn into a cynic, Sharlie. John.
Sharlene: Sit down. I'll fix you a plate.
John: No, really. I'm a little keyed up. I just stopped by to say hello. I think I'll go and take a walk. Thanks anyway.
Sharlene: Well, hey -- are you all right?
John: It's been a rough day.
[Knock on door]
John: Hey, Mitch.
Sharlene: Hey, Mitch.
Mitch: Hi, John.
John: I'll see you later. Excuse me.
Sharlene: Come on in. What can I do for you?
Mitch: I was told Matthew was here.
Sharlene: Matthew took Josie to the movies and -- but I expect them back pretty soon, if you want to wait.
Mitch: Yeah. Yeah. I think I'll do that.
Sharlene: Is something wrong, Mitch?
Mitch: No, no. I just -- I want to talk to him.
Sharlene: Why are you looking at me like that?
Mitch: I was just looking at this photograph of Janice that -- I mean, for sisters, you don't look alike.
Sharlene: You knew Janice?
Sharlene: Well, we didn't have much in common. We didn't really get along. You know, she and Jason were much closer, though.
Mitch: You know, I probably shouldn't ask you this, but maybe you could help me with something.
Sharlene: Sure. Go ahead.
Mitch: And, you know, there was a time -- well, Janice and I were lovers, I mean, even during her marriage to Mac. And I was wondering --
Jason: You're the scum that talked my sister into poisoning Mac for his money?
Mitch: Nobody talked your sister into anything.
Sharlene: What are you two talking about?
Mitch: It's nothing. It's --
Jason: It used to drive me batty trying to figure out who the guy was that destroyed her life. You're responsible for her death!
Mitch: I didn't kill her.
Jason: No. You had Rachel do it.
Sharlene: Jason --
