Nicole: Thank you, thank you.

Cass: Come along.

Michael: Oh, isn't this terrific?

Nicole: I can't believe it!

Cass: He did a great job, didn't he?

Donna: A wonderful job!

Michael: John did a great job.

Cass: Ok.

Donna: I love all those colors.

Mac: Everybody's here. There you go, darling.

Iris: Good evening, Franco. Have all the arrangements been made? This is a very important night.

Mac: Hey, there they are! Hello, everybody!

Cass: Hey!

All: Hi!

Cass: Boy, you look so good.

Iris: Ladies and gentlemen, could I please have your attention? Daddy and I want to welcome you all here tonight and ask you to join us in celebrating Coryís continued success.

Donna: Yes!

Mac: Hey, hey! This party is for you! Enjoy yourselves!

Donna: That will be great!

Evan: Shall we go have a drink?

Mac: Evan, I'm so glad you got back.

Evan: Thank you, Mac.

Mac: Good to see you.

Evan: Let's have a drink.

Mac: Well, darling, I've been waiting for this day for a long, long time.

Iris: Oh, daddy, it's you and me against the world. Hmm.

Ada: Bennett Publishing is history. Mac's company has never been on firmer ground as long as I can remember, and you're standing in the middle of the biggest closet in the world trying to palm off all your old clothes on your mother! Now, am I supposed to think that that's normal?

Rachel: Ugh!

Ada: Ugh what? Bugs?

Rachel: There's a strange woman here.

Ada: Somebody else is in here?

Rachel: No, it's me. I don't look so good.

Ada: Ah, you've looked better.

Rachel: I look like all the fight's gone out of me.

Ada: Has it?

Rachel: You better go get dressed. I think we're going to a party.

Ada: We are?

Rachel: I can't let Iris prance around Mac on the happiest day of his life!

Ada: I couldn't have said that better myself.

Rachel: So? Hurry up and get ready. We're late.

Ada: I haven't got anything to wear!

Rachel: Yes, you do. I gave you something -- this.

Ada: I'm not going to wear that.

Rachel: All right, well, then find something else because we have to go -- oh, tonight. Tonight! Tonight I'm going to fight fire with fire.

Jamie: I don't take this lightly, Vicky. I asked you to marry me because I'm serious.

Vicky: You wouldn't even be here if I wasn't carrying your child.

Jamie: But you are carrying my child and I want to offer you and the baby a future! The baby -- the baby deserves a life with two parents who live together, who --

Vicky: Love each other! That's the hard part, isn't it?

Jamie: I thought this is what you wanted.

Vicky: I want this more than anything, Jamie!

Jamie: Then tell me what the hell is going on.

Vicky: It's a contest! And I am not going to win you by default!

Vicky: I wanted you because I couldn't have you. You were in love with somebody else, you were a straight arrow, and to someone like me, that's a challenge!

Jamie: And that changed?

Vicky: Yes, because I made love with you. It wasn't a challenge anymore, Jamie. I fell in love with you and I'm in love with you now. That night, I wanted you more than anything! I didn't care what happened, I didn't care how, I didn't care who I hurt! But I ended up hurting me --

Jamie: You?

Vicky: And you and Lisa. But, you see, I -- I gave that all up when I went to Majorca. I knew I could hurt, but I couldn't hurt like that. And then, you came after me --

Jamie: Vicky, I care about you.

Vicky: And I love you.

[Jamie sighs]

Vicky: You won't even admit that you love me a little bit. Jamie, if it wasn't for this baby, I wouldn't be with you. You would be off with Lisa and I would be -- I don't know where I would be, but we wouldn't be together.

Jamie: All right, I didn't tell you that I love you. But I want to marry you. I offered myself to you and all you can say is, "gee, Jamie, I'm sorry, but that's not quite good enough"?

Vicky: That's not what I said!

Jamie: I said that I want to live my life with you and our baby. You said no. Is this what your love means to you?

Vicky: Do you think I'm enjoying this?

Jamie: I don't know!

Vicky: This is the hardest thing I've ever done!

Jamie: But you love me?

Vicky: With all my heart.

Jamie: Then explain it to me because I don't understand this kind of love. You make me understand.

[Piano plays]

[Michael chuckles]

Donna: Excuse me. I just had to tell you, I am so glad you're back.

Michael: I bet you are, too.

Nicole: Thanks, Donna.

[Donna laughs]

Cass: Slightly. Let me take another look at you.

Nicole: What?

Cass: I think you look gorgeous.

Nicole: Oh, you must say that to all the girls.

Cass: That's not true. You are clearly the most beautiful woman here.

Nicole: Hmm. Can you tell me that again?

Caroline: Stafford, for one.

Cass: Well, well, well. Look, look, look, look.

Nicole: Doesn't she ever --

Cass: Ahem.

Caroline: Cass.

Cass: Caroline.

Caroline: Nicole.

Nicole: I didn't realize that you were a friend of Macís.

Caroline: Excuse me?

Cass: Oh, didn't you know this is a private party?

Caroline: Oh. I came here for a quiet dinner and -- ha -- it seems like I chose the wrong restaurant.

Cass: Cory Publishing had some great news today, so we're celebrating.

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Caroline: Well, I'm so glad I popped in, then.

Nicole: Oh. You just popped in, in that outfit?

Caroline: Just something I threw on.

Nicole: You missed a few places.

Caroline: Well, I see a few friendly faces. I think I'll just wander over and say hi. Lovely to see you both.

Cass: Nice to see you, Caroline.

Caroline: Nicole? Lovely little frock you're wearing. It's so nice and toasty for such cold weather. Perfect.

Cass: Down, girl!

Nicole: How can you be so civil to that little --

Cass: I know that she's kind of a pain in the neck, but it's -- it's all harmless. You take this flirtation stuff far too seriously.

Nicole: No, Cass. She just "popped in"? Right!

[Cass chuckles]

Nicole: Yeah, because she knew all of Macís rich friends would be here.

Cass: She almost popped out.

[Cass and Nicole laugh]

Nicole: I know.

Cass: There you are! Hi, honey! Hi.

Felicia: Oh, hi, guys!

Nicole: Hi, Felicia!

Felicia: So, is Franco taking good care of everyone at the party?

Nicole: Oh, yes.

Cass: Oh, couldn't be better, except for the two cases of food poisoning, that is.

Felicia: I'm glad.

Cass: Are you all right?

Felicia: Hi, hi. I'm sorry?

Cass: Did you have a fight with Mitch?

Felicia: Mitch?

Cass: Your husband.

Felicia: No! Of course I didn't have a fight with Mitch.

Cass: Is it something else?

Felicia: No, honey! You know what, Nicole? I think you better get him something to eat. You know how he gets when his stomach is full of champagne and he hasn't had anything to eat. Come on!

Cass: Liz said that you stopped by to see me. Do you need to talk about anything?

Felicia: No, honey. I'm fine. I just have this very important engagement that I have to do tonight. Listen, if you need anything, just ask Franco, all right? I'll see you later.

Cass: Ok. Ok.

Felicia: All right. I love your outfit. Ok. See you later.

Cass: Yeah.

Felicia: Yes, this is Felicia Gallant. Could you have my car brought around to the front entrance, please? Yes -- no, no. I will be driving myself tonight. Yes, thank you. See you later.

Woman: Ok.

Felicia: Thank you.

[Jake sighs]

Jake: How can anyone afford to have a baby?

Marley: What?

Jake: Do you know how much money it's going to cost to raise a child?

Marley: Jake, this is not what is bothering you and you know it.

Jake: Oh, what are you now, clairvoyant?

Marley: You know, a lot of people have fertility problems. We are not the only ones.

Jake: Yeah, well, it's starting to get to me.

Marley: What is?

Jake: Taking your temperature, making love on the right day. Who knows what this Dr. Jansen's going to come up for us to do?

Marley: Hey! We talked about this. You agreed that it was --

Jake: I just -- I just wish this was as easy for me as it is for you. I envy you, all right?

Marley: I want a child more than anything in this world.

Jake: I know that.

Marley: But if it will destroy what we have, then --

Jake: I don't want to talk about this anymore.

Marley: Jake?

Jake: I don't want to talk about it.

Marley: Jake, don't run away from everything!

Jake: I don't want to talk about it!

Marley: Don't -- run away from me.

Vicky: I want to be loved back!

Jamie: Boy, you don't pull any punches, do you?

Vicky: Jamie, the only reason you even asked me to marry you is so you can guarantee your relationship with your child!

Jamie: That's not true.

Vicky: Yes, it is. You know it and I know it. You want this baby more than you want me. What I find hard to believe is that you want it even more than you want Lisa. But, Jamie, it's not good enough. I deserve more.

Jamie: Vicky, I will -- I will make this work. I'll try!

Vicky: "Try"? You think trying would be good for our child to see you trying to love me?

Jamie: He'll -- he'll know that we both love him!

Vicky: And then how long will it be until we hate each other?

Jamie: I will never hate you!

Vicky: Yes, you will.

Jamie: Oh.

Vicky: We'll go through our married life and I can guarantee you'll hate me because you'll always be blaming me for you losing Lisa.

Jamie: Stop dragging Lisa into this.

Vicky: You're still protecting her, aren't you? If you can't stop thinking about her the night you proposed to me, then how is our married life going to be any different?

Jamie: I'm here, aren't I? Now, doesn't that count for anything?

Vicky: Yeah. Yeah, that counts. You're here but where's your heart?

Evan: Well, you having fun?

Iris: What are you doing here? Amanda's all alone over at the bar.

Evan: Oh, everything's under control, Iris.

Iris: Hmm. Is it?

Evan: Yes. There's an art to this whole thing. Watch. May I have one of those? Thank you. Excuse me. Would you like some more?

Amanda: Oh.

Evan: There you go.

Amanda: Ok, ok.

Iris: Daddy?

Mac: Yes, darling?

Iris: You haven't danced with me all evening and I'm feeling very neglected.

Mac: Well, we'll have none of that. Would you excuse us? I want to dance with my gorgeous daughter. Come on.

Iris: Oh.

Cass: Show us how it's done.

[Iris laughs]

Mac: We could never replace you.

[Cass laughs]

Iris: Daddy, do you know you were the very first man I ever danced with?

Mac: You were 4 years old. You stood on my feet and I taught you to waltz.

[Mac chuckles]

Iris: This is one of the happiest nights of my life.

Mac: Hmm. It would be for me, too, if only Rachel hadn't been too tired from her trip to Chicago to come.

Iris: Yeah, that's a pity.

We are going to make "Brava" the best, most successful international magazine --

Mac: I'll settle for that.

Iris: I've got so many wonderful ideas; I'm just going to --

Ada: Something to be said for being fashionably late.

Rachel: Yes. I'd forgotten how much fun this is.

Mac: Oh, Rachel! I'm so glad you changed your mind and decided to come! Everything's perfect now! Hey, Ada!

Ada: Oh!

Mac: I love you! Come on, talk to everybody!

[Cheers]

[Whistles]

Man: Whoo!

[Cat meows]

[Debris lands]

Felicia: Oh. Hi. Hmm. Oh, what are you doing out here all by yourself, huh, in the cold?

[Child laughs]

Man: Where do you think you're going, lady?

Felicia: Home.

Man: Well, home ain't that way. This is a dead-end street.

Felicia: Yeah. Don't I know it. Well -- what -- are you hungry? Would you like something to eat? Ok. Look. Here. Take this. Go on, take it. Get yourself some food. Just don't get any booze, all right? No --

Felicia: Do -- do you live around here? Well, I think you better go home, too. You know, it's supposed to get very cold tonight and it may snow again. What? You -- you live right here? Do you? Wait, wait -- please. Wait. Here. Here. Take this, go ahead. It's all right. Go ahead, take it. Get yourself a room. It's too cold to be outside tonight. Ok?

Man: I know you.

Felicia: No. No, you donít.

Man: I know who you are.

Felicia: No. No, really, you donít.

Man: Yeah. You're the lady on all those book covers.

Felicia: Yes. Yes. I am that lady.

Man: Well, go home, lady, because this is no place for you.

Felicia: Gold Street. It never was.

Mac: But, darling, I thought you wanted to do your artwork. I think it's a great idea for you to come back to "Brava." I never wanted you to leave in the first -- let's go tell Iris right now.

Rachel: No. I think maybe I should by myself.

Mac: Really? Sure?

Rachel: Yes. Hmm. Iris?

Iris: Oh, hello, Rachel. That was quite an entrance you made.

Rachel: I'd like to talk to you.

Iris: I'm all ears.

Rachel: I don't think I should have left "Brava."

Iris: But you agreed to.

Rachel: I agreed because you forced me to because of Mac, but it was a mistake. I would like to come back.

Iris: What?

Rachel: I want us to put our differences aside. What do you say?

Ada: Won't be boring, Iris, I'll tell you that.

Iris: Well, this is quite a surprise.

Rachel: Well, I'm willing to give it a try if you are. What do you say we let bygones be bygones?

Iris: Well, I -- I suppose your presence at "Brava" could be beneficial.

Ada: Good move, Iris! I think I'll bring Mac some champagne.

Rachel: Ahem.

Iris: I think maybe we should have a trial run just to see if we can work together.

Rachel: What do you have in mind?

Iris: Well, I'm just about to start preparing for the snowflake ball.

Rachel: You want me to work on the snowflake ball?

Iris: Yes. Well, it's one of Cory Publishing's biggest fundraising events and it's going to take a hell of a lot of work.

Rachel: Fine. I'll do it if you're my co-chairman.

Iris: "Co-chairman"?

Rachel: Yes. As you say, it'll take a lot from both of us to make this work.

Iris: I wonder if it will -- work, that is.

Jamie: Vicky? Our baby deserves to -- to have his parents together. A family. I never had that. I still think about what I missed.

Vicky: I never had it, either, Jamie.

Jamie: Listen, Vicky. We can get along, you know? We've had some good times.

Vicky: Yeah.

Jamie: And -- and things have been better lately. Think about how -- how close we were in Majorca.

Vicky: I know.

Jamie: And the day you had your sonogram -- do you remember? Do you remember how happy we were? And Thanksgiving. Huh. If we can come -- if we can meet halfway now, then maybe we can come full circle later on. We -- we haven't had the time to develop anything between us. That doesn't mean it couldn't happen. Don't think about now. Think about the future and the chance that -- the chance that we could be very happy together.

Vicky: Oh --

[Phone rings]

Franco: Tops.

Vicky: Hi, this is Victoria Hudson. Is Donna Hudson there? It's a party, something?

Franco: Just one minute, Miss Hudson.

Iris: Is that Victoria Hudson?

Franco: Yes, ma'am.

Iris: Don't worry. I'll speak to her.

Franco: Ok.

Iris: Hello, Vicky? This is Iris Wheeler.

Vicky: Oh, hi. Is my mom there?

Iris: Well, you sound awfully upset. Uh -- look, don't worry. I'll find her and tell her that you want to see her.

Vicky: Uh -- tell her I'm fine. I just -- I just need to talk to her.

Iris: I will. Don't worry, I'll take care of it. Goodbye. Oh, Donna.

Felicia: Ok, you're better. It's cold.

Man: How many times do I have to tell you -- you do what I tell you to do!

[Girl whimpers]

Man: You're just no good! I told you before, never touch that! You'll never amount to anything, do you know that, young lady?

[Piano plays]

Evan: Now, how often do you get a furlough from this -- this baby of yours?

Amanda: I love being with my family.

Evan: This is your family here, isn't it?

Amanda: You know what I mean.

[Evan chuckles]

Evan: You know, there's something I can't quite figure out about you.

Amanda: Great! I love being inscrutable.

[Evan and Amanda laugh]

Evan: Here you go.

Cass: You know, Mac looks like he's on top of the world.

Iris: Yeah. Daddy and I are very happy. By the way, he tells me you're an excellent lawyer.

Cass: When I want to be. I enjoy working for your father very much, but I also like to gamble on other projects. It keeps life interesting.

Iris: Do you gamble for money?

Cass: I've been known to participate in a game of chance from time to time.

Iris: I may need to pick a gambler's mind sometime. Shall I make an appointment?

Cass: I'm expensive.

Iris: The question is, are you worth it?

Cass: So I've been told. Give me a call.

Cass: Hi.

Nicole: Hi.

Cass: Let's make a wish and see if it turns out.

Nicole: Ok.

Cass: Do you want to go first or shall I?

Nicole: You can go first.

Cass: Ok. I wish that Paris were only 10 miles away so you wouldn't have to leave me again.

Nicole: Wish granted.

Cass: What are you talking about?

Nicole: I'm not going back to Paris.

Cass: You're not? Why not?

Nicole: I decided when I saw you today, I can't be away from you anymore. And I'm just not going back until we can go together on our honeymoon, so Paris will just have to wait.

Cass: Well, what about Christian?

Nicole: Well, there's always the telephone.

Cass: I like this game. Let's make some more wishes while we're on this winning streak, ok?

Jamie: Jake. Ahem.

Jake: Jamie.

Bartender: What can I get you?

Jamie: Beer.

Jake: Yeah, I'll have another one, too.

Singer: So many times we don't give, we take

Jake: How's things?

Jamie: Great. You?

Jake: It's ok. Talk to Vicky lately?

Jamie: Yeah, I've seen Vicky.

Jake: How is she?

Jamie: Thank you.

Bartender: Here you go.

Jake: Thanks.

Bartender: Ok.

Jake: How is she?

Jamie: She's fine.

Jake: She's very important to me, Jamie. That's -- that's why I don't like seeing her alone.

Jamie: She doesn't have to be.

Jake: Says who?

Jamie: Me. I asked her to marry me today.

Singers: You ain't no exception to the rules

Jake: I guess that's why you look so happy, huh?

Jamie: She turned me down.

Jake: She what?

Jamie: You heard me.

Jake: That girl is something!

Jamie: There's no reason for us not to be married now. It's the only sensible thing to do.

Jake: Oh, and I'm sure that's the way you -- you put it to her and you're probably still wondering why she turned you down, huh?

Jamie: Look, Jake, I didn't come here for a rehash, especially not with you.

Jake: She turned you down. I have known that girl for years -- I still can't figure out what she's up to sometimes, you know?

Jamie: You sound like that's great or something.

Jake: What, don't you think it is?

Jamie: I never know how she's going to react, Jake. I never know what she's going to do. She turns my life upside down at least once a week!

Jake: I remember.

Jamie: Yeah, I bet you do.

Jake: It kind of makes life exciting, though. Know what I mean?

Singer: I said that you ain't no exception

Donna: Honey, are you all right? Is it the baby? I mean, what is it?

Vicky: Jamie asked me to marry him tonight.

Donna: What? Oh, honey! This is wonderful! Oh, I can't believe it! Well, I knew he was a little slow --

Vicky: Mom --

Donna: But this -- I knew he'd come around! This is just so wonderful! Michael -- oh, I've got to tell Michael right away.

Vicky: No, Mom --

Donna: He is going to be so excited. I can't believe this! Have you called Marley yet?

Vicky: Mom? Mom --

Donna: You know, sometimes you really do get things you want in life!

Vicky: I said no!

Singer: Something I can

Jake: So what are you going to do now about -- about Vicky?

Jamie: I don't know.

Jake: I mean, now that she turned you down and all?

Jamie: Jake, just go home -- just go home to Marley, will you?

Jake: I can't, not yet.

Singer: When I think

Jamie: Why?

Jake: Ah. We're having a few problems, you know?

Singers: The scales are sometimes unbalanced

Jamie: Yeah, I heard you were -- ahem -- having trouble conceiving a child.

Singer: The weight of all that has to be

Jamie: Yeah, Vicky told me. That unpredictable nature you're so crazy about?

Singer: And together we can

Jake: You must have just laughed your head off, huh?

Jamie: I'm not like that, Jake. I have a number of patients who have the same problem. I know it's tough.

Singer: And so unselfishly

Jake: So, what do you tell these patients?

Jamie: Go see a fertility specialist.

Jake: We found one. I mean, actually, Michael found one, some -- some hotshot guy in Chicago.

Jamie: Jansen.

Singer: Giving you the best that I got

Jake: Yeah. You've heard of him?

Jamie: He's the best.

Jake: What, you think he can help us?

Jamie: I don't know the details, Jake.

Singer: Everybody's got opinions 'bout the way they think our story's going to end

Jake: It's -- it's not just Marleyís fault.

Jamie: It's nobody's fault, Jake.

Jake: Hey, man, this is not easy for me to talk about, all right?

Jamie: Sorry.

Singer: We love so strong

Jake: You're lucky you're having a kid, you know that?

Singer: And so unselfishly

Jamie: Yeah, I know.

Jake: I mean, all your life, you know, you just figure, "hey, when I want a kid, I'll just have one," and just -- it's just not like that.

Singer: Giving you the best that I've got

Jamie: Well, don't give up hope.

Singer: Baby

Jamie: Come on, there's -- there's a lot of -- a lot of reasons to have hope these days.

Singer: Giving you the best

Jake: Right, if you got the money.

Singer: Listen, baby

Jamie: Well, doesn't your job have medical coverage?

Jake: I freelance, man. I mean -- insurance doesn't cover fertility tests.

Jamie: Oh, yeah, that's right.

Jake: And Marley -- that's all she could think about. She needs to have a baby. Never seen her like this before.

Jamie: Couldn't you ask Michael for help?

Jake: No!

Jamie: I thought you said this was important.

Jake: I'm not going to ask for charity from my father-in-law, all right?

Jamie: Oh. You have a lot of pride.

Singer: And I want to sing it forever

Jake: I just can't help the way I feel.

Jamie: What about Marley? What about how she feels? You may have to give up on your pride, just this once.

Singer: So I tell you now

Amanda: I'm fine!

Evan: Really? How many fingers do you see?

Amanda: Those fingers.

Evan: Listen, why don't you just let me get you a cup of coffee and I'll send you home right away? You'll thank me in the morning.

Amanda: No, I told Sam that I'm coming home right now.

Evan: He'll understand. He's not even here anyway.

Amanda: I know. He's at home painting. He's an excellent artist, you know that.

Evan: I -- I know. Listen, well, if you go home, he's going to have to stop; you're going to break his concentration.

Amanda: Yeah, that's just what I was hoping for.

Evan: You really don't go out very much, do you?

Amanda: I'm entitled! I'm a very devoted wife and mother.

Evan: Yes, you are.

Amanda: And besides, this was a special occasion. We took Bennett Publishing. We really whipped their --

Evan: Shh, shh, shh, shh! Listen, why don't you just let me take your coat?

Amanda: No. I have to go home right now. I have to go home now.

Evan: Ok, ok, ok. Just let me drive, all right? Hit the elevator. Oh, thank you.

Felicia: Hi.

Evan: Hi.

Cass: Felicia?

Felicia: Oh, hi, honey. You're both still here?

Cass: Well, yeah? Where have you been?

Nicole: Are you ok?

Felicia: I'm fine, I'm fine.

Cass: You look terrible.

Felicia: Oh, well, thank you very much. I really needed that.

Cass: Would you please tell me what's wrong with you tonight?

Felicia: Look, you two, would you -- would you just stop? Just give me a minute. I'll be as good as new, I promise you. Stop worrying about me. All right?

Cass: I'm going after her.

Nicole: No, no, no. She'll come to you if she wants your help. She trusts you.

Cass: Ok. But something is definitely bothering her.

Nicole: Why don't we call her tomorrow, ok? Let's just give her some time to get herself together.

Cass: That sounds like a good idea.

Nicole: So, are you ready to go?

Cass: Already?

Nicole: Well, I haven't really seen you since I got back.

Cass: Hmm. Like I said, let's get the hell out of here.

Nicole: Ok.

Caroline: Leaving so soon?

Nicole: Yes.

Caroline: I was wondering if I could trouble you for a lift.

Nicole: How did you get here? Broomstick?

Caroline: My car's been in the shop since the snowstorm.

Cass: Oh, yes. Those mechanics like to keep you waiting, don't they?

Caroline: Yes, well, my building's on the way to your little shop.

Nicole: Salon.

Caroline: Right. Do you think you could squeeze me in?

Nicole: Oh, we'd love to give you a lift, Caroline, wouldn't we, Cass?

Cass: Um --

Nicole: But my car is a little two-seater.

Caroline: Is it?

Cass: Is it? It is, mm-hmm!

Nicole: Yes, and we'll be toasty enough without you. Ciao.

Cass: Oh, the elevator. Good night.

Caroline: Your point this time, Nicole.

Mac: It's true.

Michael: Ok. I know. I believe it.

Mac: Oh.

Rachel: That's -- that's smart.

[Music plays]

[Singing in French]

[Michael laughs]

Iris: I'd love to know what you find so amusing.

Michael: Well, it's just I haven't been turned down quite like that in quite a long time.

Iris: I see.

Michael: Perhaps I should try a more indirect approach.

Iris: Well, it couldn't hurt.

Michael: Um -- are you alone?

Iris: Yes, I'm alone.

Michael: Good. Well, you're not alone any longer, but continue, please. Go on.

Iris: I'm not sure that I want to.

Michael: Ok. Do you live in Cannes?

Iris: No. Do you?

Michael: No. No, that's -- that's my little boat out there, the white one.

Iris: Oh, the little hundred-foot yacht?

Michael: Yeah, that's the one.

Iris: Hmm. It's very nice.

Michael: Thank you. I just docked it a couple of hours ago. I think at this moment, I am very glad I did.

Iris: Well, why me?

Michael: Well, it's obvious -- you are the most beautiful woman in this cafe.

Iris: That's true.

Michael: And obviously, the most perceptive.

Iris: Perception is not a quality admired by most men.

Michael: Well, I am not most men.

Iris: Perhaps. Perhaps not.

Michael: Ooh. Do I detect a little chill in here, hmm? Hmm?

Iris: Well, us women have to take care of ourselves.

Michael: I see. Well, then how about if I order us some espresso? Maybe that'll take the chill off and warm us up a little bit. Ok? My name is Michael Garrison.

Rachel: Felicia? Felicia?

Felicia: Yes.

Rachel: There you are!

Felicia: Rachel, hi.

Rachel: I've been looking all over for you!

Felicia: How beautiful you look.

Rachel: Thank you. There are some people out there who want to meet you --

Felicia: Oh.

Rachel: Who've never met you, who've never met the famous authoress, talk-show host, restaurateur extraordinaire --

Felicia: Rachel --

Rachel: Felicia Gallant. Come on! Get a move on!

Felicia: All right, all right. I'll be right there.

Rachel: Are you all right?

Felicia: Yes! No, no, I'm fine. I'll be right there, I promise.

Rachel: Ok, well, hurry up.

Felicia: Ok, go on.

Rachel: Don't forget.

Felicia: I wonít.

[Felicia sighs]

Felicia: Ok. You can do this, Felicia. That's right. That's who you are. Let's go.

Marley: I missed you.

Jake: I missed you, too, Marley.

Marley: Oh, Jake. Oh. Are you mad at me?

Jake: You mad at me?

Marley: No.

Marley: I want your child.

Jake: I know, honey. I know. Do you blame me for this?

Marley: Oh, no. Do you still love me?

Jake: I love you more than anything in the entire world.

Mac: And when I saw you step out of that elevator, I immediately thought of the very first time I met you.

Rachel: And when I saw you tonight, I thought, "I've never seen him look more handsome."

Mac: Yes, but I had this -- you know, like I told you before, tingling sensation, delicious feeling inside, just like the very first time I met you, and I knew at that moment I was going to spend my life with you. I'm telling you, when you came out of that elevator, I just, like, had a vision of how lucky I am.

Rachel: Oh, darling. It's amazing how we've always pulled through.

Mac: Rachel, I treasure every moment I've spent with you, every moment.

Rachel: I want us to love each other like this always, all right?

Mac: Nothing's ever going to come between us.

Donna: Oh, well, I can't cook a turkey, but I can boil a mean pot of water. Here you go, sweetie.

Vicky: Thanks.

Donna: Oh. You feeling any better?

Vicky: No.

Donna: I want you to listen to me for a minute. You know, I didn't get a chance to know you until you were all grown up. And that's something that I can't take back. And that's something that I'm always going to regret for the rest of my life.

But when I did meet you, it didn't take me very long to realize that you were just like me.

Vicky: I don't know about that.

Donna: Oh, I do. That's why you're so very special -- because I know that you have the same feelings inside that I do. And I wasn't even around to make that happen. Look, honey, we -- we both want so much out of life and sometimes -- well, a lot of times -- we get hurt because we go for what we want. But that's ok. It is ok to want more.

Vicky: Is it?

Donna: Yes, baby, it is. Because, you see, you deserve to be loved. And if you really don't believe that Jamie loves you, then you did absolutely the right thing by saying no.

Vicky: Oh.

Donna: Oh, baby.

Vicky: I really feel like I blew it.

Donna: No, you didnít.

[Knock on door]

Donna: It's going to be all right. Hey, let me get that. You know that -- that might be your father. He was awfully worried about you, too.

[Donna gasps]

Donna: Jamie! Well --

Jamie: I'm sorry. I didn't know you had company. I'll come back.

Donna: No! No. No, that's -- that's fine. Um -- come on in. Victoria, I'm -- I'm going to go check on that roast that we've got in the oven.

Vicky: Ok. Um -- I -- I didn't expect to see you again tonight.

Jamie: I didn't -- I didn't, either.

Vicky: Oh.

Jamie: I mean, see you.

Vicky: Right -- no, yeah. I know what you mean.

Jamie: Look, can I start over?

Vicky: Uh -- yeah -- here? Where --

Jamie: Before.

Vicky: Oh.

Jamie: Before, I was --

Vicky: Yeah.

Jamie: I've been doing a lot of thinking and I really -- I really didn't handle myself well. I wasn't -- I wasn't fair to you. I -- I blew it.

Vicky: Blew -- oh, I know -- ooh, I know that feeling.

Jamie: I have Thursday off. Could we talk some more then? Listen, I would understand if you -- if you would -- if you don't want to. I mean, if I were you, I wouldn't want to talk to me, either, right now.

Vicky: I'll see you Thursday.

Jamie: You will?

Vicky: Yeah.

Jamie: Good. Then I'll -- then I'll be looking forward to that.

Vicky: Oh, well, me, too. Thursday, yeah.

Jamie: Good. Then it's settled.

Vicky: Yeah.

Jamie: Get some rest.

Vicky: Rest -- yeah, I'll get some, yeah.

Jamie: Ok. Good night.

Vicky: Yeah. Good night.

Jamie: Good night.

Vicky: Bye. Bye --

Donna: Is he gone?

Vicky: Yeah.

Donna: Oh, baby. Are you all right? I mean, what -- what did he -- you're smiling.

Vicky: Oh!

Donna: No, I mean, you're really smiling!

Vicky: I mean --

Donna: What? What happened?

Vicky: I think the stars are out for me tonight, Mom! I think things are going to go my way!

Donna: Oh, honey!
