[Knock on door]

Sharlene: Coming. Oh, hi. Hi. Come on in.

John: Ooh. Hi.

Sharlene: Hi.

John: Whew. I brought a materials price list for Jason to go over when he gets back.

Sharlene: Oh, ok. Fine, fine, fine. I'll see that he gets it.

John: Oh, it is so cold out there.

Sharlene: Yeah.

John: I think we're going to have a real cold winter.

Sharlene: Whew, I see.

John: Well -- uh -- I better get going. I'll see you.

Sharlene: John? Are you in a hurry?

John: Well, no, no, not really. Why?

Sharlene: Well, there's something that I'd like to say.

John: Ok.

Sharlene: Well, actually, it's a question.

John: What?

Sharlene: You want to do something with me tonight?

Matt: What's going on?

Ken and Josie: Uh --

Josie: Matthew, I thought you were going to the library.

Matt: Yeah, I am. I forgot my chemistry books.

Ken: Oh, man, I had that book last semester. I know how boring that can be.

Matt: Hey, what's with the box, Kenny?

Ken: What box?

Matt: The box under your hand.

Ken: That box.

Matt: Yes.

Ken: I got some stuff.

Josie: Oh, this -- you just want me to take this back to the farm, right?

Ken: Yeah, just, you know, if it's not too big of an imposition on you.

Josie: Oh, no, no, no problem at all.

Ken: Thanks a lot.

Matt: Hey, listen, well, I have to get to the library. I'll give you a call later?

Josie: No!

Matt: What do you mean, "No"? What, are you busy?

Josie: Uh -- uh -- me? Of course not. But you are, you are. You have an exam tomorrow. You got to study all night.

Matt: Yeah, yeah, yeah, but I'm going to be breaking here and there.

Josie: Oh, no, you donít. Don't you dare. You're going to ace that test, and don't you even call me because I'm not going to answer the phone.

Matt: She's pretty strict, huh?

Ken: Well, pal, if I were you, I think I'd be listening to her.

Matt: Well, seems I don't have much of a choice. I will talk to you later sometime.

Josie: Ok.

Singer: See my old man's got a problem, he live with the bottle that's the way it is

Josie: Oh, good luck on your test.

Matt: Yeah, yeah.

Singer: Body's too young to look like his

Josie: I can't believe he came back.

Ken: Ah, you were brilliant.

Josie: You sure he didn't suspect?

Ken: Are you kidding? Look, hey, if you can sing half as good as you act, we're home.

Josie: Oh, Kenny, I'm so nervous. I mean, what if he does call me tonight?

Ken: What are you so worried about? I mean, what's the big deal? What is the worst thing that can happen if Matt finds out?

Josie: Kenny, I told you, I don't want him finding out! I'm doing this for his Christmas present!

Ken: Ok. Hey, relax, it's all right. It's just a little secret between you and me -- and those thousands of people at that party tonight.

Josie: Thousands of people?

Ken: Yeah, just don't worry about it. Look, just try on the costume and let me know.

Josie: Why can't I just wear my own clothes?

Ken: Because the costume is part of the gig, remember? Ok, now it's 9:00 P.M. sharp. Be there.

 

Singer: Driving in your car the speed so fast I felt like I was drunk city lights lay out before us and your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder and I, I had a feeling that I belonged

Jamie: So the candy striper says, "On a gurney with an ear, nose, and throat man." Oh! Ah!

Mitch: I'm going to drink to that. I'm going to drink to that only because tonight, I would drink to anything.

Jamie: Well, not alone, you're not, that's for sure.

Mitch: This is great. Boys' night out, huh?

Jamie: I'm telling you, Mitch, I am having fun.

Mitch: I'm having fun.

Jamie: Yeah. Let me buy you another drink.

Mitch: No, no, no, no, I've got this one.

Jamie: No, I insist, I insist. You can get the next one. Innkeeper? Innkeeper! Another round here, please. Ah.

Woman: How about I buy you that drink? Well, what do you say?

Sharlene: I know it's kind of short notice --

John: Sharlene --

Sharlene: But I thought maybe we could take in a movie.

John: Uh -- I -- I canít. I'd like to, but I canít.

Sharlene: Oh. Oh.

John: I already have plans.

Sharlene: Well, it -- it was just a thought.

John: Sorry.

Sharlene: No! Sure. It's no problem.

John: Well -- uh -- I'd better get going.

Sharlene: Wait. These are the kind of plans you can't change? Oh. Oh. I don't believe I just said that.

John: No, that's ok.

Sharlene: No --

John: It's really --

Sharlene: It's none of my business.

John: I'm meeting Lisa.

Sharlene: Lisa Grady?

John: Yeah.

Sharlene: Again?

John: Oh, we're friends, you know.

Sharlene: Friends, I see.

John: Yes.

Sharlene: Well, have a good time, and -- and give Lisa my best.

John: Sharlene?

Sharlene: What?

John: I'll see you tomorrow.

Sharlene: Right.

[Knock on door]

Sharlene: Hi, Rachel.

Rachel: Hello, Sharlene. Thank you for seeing me.

Sharlene: I thought you were coming yesterday.

Rachel: I got held up.

Sharlene: I see.

Rachel: May I come in?

Sharlene: I --

Rachel: Sharlene, please? I have a proposition for you.

Woman: What are you drinking?

Jamie: I'm fine, thank you.

Woman: Why, you don't let women buy you drinks?

Jamie: Well, not tonight I don't, no.

Woman: Not me, you mean.

Jamie: Well, no, my friend and I here are having a very serious philosophical discussion.

Woman: If you're not careful, I'm going to start to feel rejected.

Jamie: Well, now, we don't want that, no, but I'm afraid you've -- you've got the wrong guy tonight.

Woman: Maybe just the wrong night.

Jamie: Maybe.

Woman: My name's Coral.

Jamie: I appreciate the offer, Coral.

Coral: Well, I'll be around in case it becomes the right night.

Mitch: Yeah.

Yeah. Score one for the doctor.

Jamie: The times, they are a-changing.

Mitch: Look, don't hang around here because of me.

Jamie: Ooh, ooh, Mitch, the last thing in the world that I need right now is another relationship, however brief.

Bartender: Here you go.

Mitch: Thank you.

Jamie: Thank you.

Bartender: Sure.

Jamie: Ahem. Yes. Sometimes, Mitch, I have to admit that I don't think I know a thing about women.

Mitch: Oh, really?

Jamie: Yes. They are so tough to figure out. Men, on the other hand -- men, they are like an open book.

Mitch: You're right, men are like open books.

Jamie: So you had a fight with Felicia, huh?

Mitch: Yeah, yeah.

Jamie: Bad?

Mitch: Uh -- I don't know that you'd call it a fight, actually.

Jamie: Well, what is it that happened?

Mitch: Well, it was about Matthew, actually.

Jamie: What happened?

Mitch: Well, Matthew and I got into a fight -- I mean a real fight, a good one.

Jamie: Well, I'm sorry to hear that.

Mitch: You know, we just can't keep kowtowing to the kid. You know, somewhere along the line, you know, you just have to put an end to things. You have to draw the line.

Jamie: And Felicia doesn't agree?

Mitch: No, she thinks that I was abusing the kid.

Jamie: Oh. I'm telling you, this father thing can get pretty tricky.

Mitch: It can get very tricky. It's not easy. You know, I mean, you being single, no attachments -- now, that's easy, that's easy.

Jamie: Well, I don't know about that.

Sam: Hey, guys, can I crash this party?

Mitch: I think I heard the voice of my brother.

Jamie: The voice of an artist.

Mitch: Pull up a stool.

Jamie: Yeah, we could use an impartial ear to bend.

Mitch: So what are you doing away from home?

Sam: Oh, I just got finished at the gallery. I'm taking a break.

Mitch: Yeah.

Jamie: My sister giving you some trouble?

Sam: Trouble? Why do you say that?

Jamie: It's going around, that's why.

Mitch: Really?

Sam: No, there's no trouble -- not really. I mean, hey, Amanda and Alli are terrific, the best.

Mitch: But?

Sam: But sometimes life becomes a story about them.

Jamie: Bartender! This man needs a pre-home bracer!

Sam: Jamie, don't get me wrong, I love them to death. It's just I need some time for me occasionally.

Jamie: Well, that's just what we've got -- some time, right, Mitch?

Mitch: Sure, sure. We're here for you.

Jamie: We specialize in problems like that, especially female problems, so if you want to get something off your chest --

Mitch: We will tell you what not to do.

Jamie: We're experts.

Sam and Jamie: Bartender!

Amanda: I am starving.

Vicky: Haven't you eaten?

Amanda: No, Sam and I were supposed to go out tonight.

Vicky: What happened?

Amanda: He never came home.

Vicky: Well, where is he?

Amanda: I don't know.

Vicky: He didn't call?

Amanda: No. I -- I guess he forgot.

Vicky: Well, who's with Alli?

Amanda: The babysitter.

Vicky: You planned this whole thing, he didn't even show up?

Amanda: I planned this thing two weeks ago, Vicky.

Vicky: Oh, Amanda.

Amanda: It's all right. I mean, it's no big deal. It doesn't bother me. We'll just have to -- you know, we'll do it again sometime.

Vicky: Well, that's not the point.

Amanda: Really, it doesn't bother me.

Vicky: Right.

Amanda: Should it bother me? I mean, I'm sure that he has a perfectly logical explanation.

Vicky: And if he doesn't?

Amanda: I'll kill him.

Vicky: Hmm, the truth comes out.

Amanda: I just don't understand, Vicky. I mean, we talked about this this morning. We got the reservations and everything. And now look at me. I mean, I'm all dressed up and nowhere to go. Kind of pathetic, isn't it?

Vicky: Amanda, are you and Sam having problems?

Amanda: No, we're not. I am.

Vicky: Hmm?

Amanda: It's his career. I mean --

[Thud]

Amanda: Oh, sorry.

Vicky: It's ok.

Amanda: It's all he ever thinks about. Then there's Caroline Stafford.

Vicky: What about her?

Amanda: She's running his career like a drill sergeant. She doesn't let him think about anything except painting. There's nothing but paint or wondering what everyone else is thinking about his painting. I mean, it never ends.

Vicky: Well, you guys are pretty open about things. You haven't talked about it?

Amanda: No.

Vicky: Well, you have to.

Amanda: This is the most important time of his life, and I --

Vicky: You feel unimportant?

Amanda: Nothing else matters to Sam right now. I mean, there's no time for fun, no time for anything. I mean, I get into bed with him and he rolls over and goes to sleep.

Vicky: Uh-oh. You got to make a stand now.

Amanda: How?

Vicky: Well, you talk to him about it. You don't let him push you away. You -- you make demands.

Amanda: Oh, I'm not good at that.

Vicky: Well, get good at it. Amanda, you have your own needs, too, just like Sam does. Don't play second fiddle to his work. Don't play second fiddle to anything.

Amanda: You're right, I shouldnít.

Vicky: And in the meantime, don't let that babysitter go to waste.

Amanda: What are you talking about?

Vicky: Well, just because Sam didn't show up doesn't mean that you have to sit around here and mope all night.

Amanda: What do you want me to do, go out by myself?

Vicky: Well, you did it before you were married, didn't you?

Amanda: Yeah.

Vicky: Well, then do it again! Go out, talk to people, dance, have fun! We don't need men to make us happy.

Amanda: Well, you're right.

Vicky: Right? We don't need men for anything.

Amanda: You're right again!

Vicky: All right, so where you going to go?

Amanda: Uh --

Vicky: "Uh --"

Amanda: Do I look good enough for the Pelican club?

Vicky: Oh, honey, you look good enough for anything.

Amanda: All right, then. I'm going to go.

Vicky: That's the spirit!

Amanda: I'm going to have a wonderful time.

Vicky: Yes!

Amanda: It's going to be fun, interesting. It'll be an adventure. Will you go with me?

Vicky: Return to the scene of a crime?

Amanda: What?

Vicky: Oh, never mind. I've just got some things to get done here, and I swear I will come and meet you later, ok? Now, come on, you're going to go, you're going to have a great time. You're going to be a smash, you're going to dance! Knock 'em dead, sweetheart!

Sharlene: Snowflake ball?

Rachel: It's the largest charity event in this town.

Sharlene: And you want me?

Rachel: Yeah, we need all the help we can get.

Sharlene: I'm sorry, Rachel.

Rachel: What do you mean?

Sharlene: I am not interested.

Rachel: Why not?

Sharlene: I have a farm to run.

Rachel: Sharlene, this is a charity function for the hospice center.

Sharlene: I know that.

Rachel: I just -- I just thought it would give us a chance to work together and maybe get to know each other again.

Sharlene: Why do you want me on this committee?

Rachel: Because I think you have a lot to offer the committee. And also I was hoping that we could use it to -- to start over again.

Sharlene: What do you mean?

Rachel: I saw Matthew today.

Sharlene: Yeah?

Rachel: He's in a lot of pain, Sharlene. We've got to end the hostility between these families.

Sharlene: Well, I sure didn't start it, Rachel.

Rachel: I know that, Sharlene. That's why I'm here. That's why I'm reaching out to you.

Sharlene: So this -- it's a peace offering?

Rachel: Do you like this feud?

Sharlene: No!

Rachel: Well, you're just not making it very easy for me, I guess.

Sharlene: If I work for your charity ball, you'll declare a truce.

Rachel: I guess I'm not making my point very clear. I'm just trying, Sharlene. When I saw Matthew today, I told him that I would ask Mac to award the contract for the work at the complex to Jason and his company, and Matthew got very angry with me. I am not trying to manipulate anything. I'm just trying to put the past in the past.

Sharlene: Whoa.

Rachel: All right. Sorry to bother you.

Sharlene: Rachel, wait. Making an effort with Jason -- I appreciate that.

Rachel: This has got to end, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Yes, it does. I will help out on your committee as much as I can.

Rachel: Thank you. Is Matthew here?

Sharlene: No. But, now, Josie said something about meeting him over at the university, student union.

Rachel: I have to talk to him. May I use your phone?

Sharlene: Yeah. And if you want a little privacy, the one in the parlor.

Rachel: Thank you.

[Music plays]

Man: What is this, kindergarten?

Ken: Oh, give me a break.

Man: Hey, the president of this fraternity is turning 21 tonight and you're blowing up balloons?

Ken: I know.

Man: Let's get going!

Ken: Hey. Hey, man, have you seen Josie? Is she still changing?

Man: She'd better get here or you're going to be in serious you-know-what.

Ken: I know.

Man: Hey, hey, who's this Josie, anyway?

Ken: Oh, she's our entertainment. She just flew in from Vegas, did a two-week gig with Wayne Newton out there. The girl is hot.

Man: Who is she, jerk?

Second man: Matt Coryís girl. You've seen her around -- long, blond hair, big eyes, about this tall?

First man: Yeah, well, she'd have to have a big screw loose to help you guys out.

Josie: Hi. Hi, guys.

Man: Hi.

Second man: How's the weather in Vegas, Josie? Did you just get in?

Josie: What?

Ken: Don't pay attention to him. He's just trying to make you nervous.

Josie: Well, he doesn't have to try too hard. Could I talk to you guys for just a second?

Man: Sure.

Ken: You were supposed to be here about 10 minutes ago.

Josie: Yeah, well, I was having a little trouble getting into this costume.

Man: No problem. The birthday boy isn't even here yet. Are you all set?

Josie: No, no, I'm not all set at all. Not at all set.

Ken: Hey --

Josie: Not at all!

Ken: What is wrong with you?

Josie: It's just that this outfit -- if that's what you want to call it -- it makes my bathing suit look like long johns!

Man: Really?

Josie: Kenny, Kenny, you didn't tell me about this. I mean, I can't get up in front of all those people in this.

Ken: Yes, Josie, come on, look, I'm sure you look great in it, really.

Josie: No, no, you see, it's -- it's too little.

Ken: Oh, come on! I mean, how little is too little?

Josie: I want you to say that I can keep my raincoat on.

Ken: I don't think I can say that, Josie. I'll try.

Man: No.

Ken: See, the words won't even come out of my mouth.

Man: Uh-uh.

Second man: All right, get ready, get ready! The birthday boy's coming!

Ken: Oh, Josie, don't go south on me now!

Man: You've got to do this for us, Josie.

Josie: But, guys, guys, I will die of embarrassment if you make me do this! I won't be able to sing or breathe --

Ken: Josie --

Josie: Or swallow! Look. Look, I can't swallow now!

Man: Calm down, calm down! Everything's going to be fine!

Josie: No, no, no, you guys, my mouth is much too dry. Look, look -- no spit, no spit.

Man: You don't need to spit to sing, do you?

Josie: Of course you do! Oh, please, Kenny, please don't make me do this.

Ken: Josie --

Man: Hey, David!

Ken: Too late! Come on, Josie, you got to do this. You're our last hope.

Man: You've got to do this for us, Josie.

Sam: To make it as an artist, you've got to work, right?

Mitch: So you've been working.

Sam: Yeah.

Jamie: Amanda tells me you're in that studio night and day.

Sam: I am, Jamie, but I've got no choice about it.

Mitch: What do you mean? I mean, with your show opening soon, doesn't she understand that?

Sam: I don't know that, Mitch. All I know is that when I come home, I'm still thinking about painting. When she comes home, she's all wired about the baby or work. We're just not connecting.

Jamie: Yeah, it's the old lack-of-connection syndrome.

Mitch: Yeah.

Jamie: Mitch and I were talking about that very thing.

Mitch: Yeah, and we don't a treatment yet. What is it?

Jamie: Well, I recommend a month in the Caribbean, then you give me a call in the morning.

Sam: Guys, I don't know, we've never had trouble talking before.

Jamie: Oh, Sam, the mind of a woman is unfathomable! Thus speaks Jamie Frame on this second day of December, 1988.

[Jamie laughs]

Sam: The what, the what?

Jamie: The second day of December, 1988!

Sam: Oh, man! I was supposed to go out with Amanda tonight. Oh, man.

Jamie: Well, it's not too late. It's barely the shank of the evening.

Sam: Yeah, but she probably called the sitter already and canceled.

Mitch: Hang on a second, why don't you just give her a call?

Jamie: Yes, at least connect with her telephonically.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: Sam?

Sam: Amanda.

Amanda: What are you doing here?

Sam: Having a drink. What are you doing here?

Amanda: You're having a drink? We were supposed to go out tonight.

Sam: Yeah, I know, I was just going to call you about that.

Amanda: You expect me to sit at home alone?

Sam: Well, no!

Amanda: I mean, you're here having a drink at a bar!

Sam: Well -- so now you're at a bar.

Amanda: That's right. I am.

Jamie: You know something, Mitch?

Mitch: Nope.

Jamie: I really am beginning to feel a whole lot better.

Lisa: Thank you.

[Knock on door]

Sharlene: Hey.

Matt: Hi. Is Josie here?

Sharlene: No, I haven't seen her, but I've been kind of busy. Listen, Matt, I talked to your mom.

Matt: When?

Sharlene: Tonight. In fact --

Matt: What did she say?

Sharlene: She said a lot of things. She wants things to be different between you.

Matt: No, see, that's what she doesn't understand -- I want things to be different, too.

Sharlene: Have you told her that?

Matt: No. Because no matter how much I want that, I don't think it's a possibility.

Rachel: They said he wasn't there. Sweetie.

Matt: You didn't tell me she was here. What --

Sharlene: Matt, Matt --

Rachel: Matthew -- Matthew!

Sharlene: Rachel, it's been a tough night, you said it yourself. Maybe you need to give him a little space.

Rachel: No, no more space. I'm not leaving this farm until I've talked to him, Sharlene.

Josie: Guys, I'm sorry, I just -- I just can't do this!

Ken: Yes, you can. You're going to be wonderful!

Man: You'd think that we were asking you to sing an aria from "Madame Butterfly." This is "Happy Birthday." Anybody can do "Happy Birthday."

Josie: I have an idea. What if I -- what if I sing "Happy Birthday" with my raincoat on? That's good.

Ken: Josie, that's not exactly my idea of a memorable 21st birthday. Now --

Josie: Well, it's different.

Ken: It's boring!

Man: Very boring.

Ken: Very boring!

Josie: I'll sell the song, I promise! I'll sell the song!

Ken: Oh, you'd better sell it or we're going to get sold up the river.

Man: And now --

Ken: Come on, you promised me.

Man: Straight from a gig in Las Vegas, the one, the only, the scintillating, the mesmerizing Cyndi Lauper! I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Hold on, hold on. My mistake. Cyndi has laryngitis tonight.

Men: Aw!

Man: I know, but she sent over her fabulous replacement, the one, the only -- will somebody tell me the girl's name?

Ken: Josie Watts.

Man: Josie Watts!

Men: Whoo!

Josie: Hi.

David: Hi.

Josie: Uh -- uh --

[Josie hums]

Happy birthday to you

Man: Hey, it's not raining in here. Take your coat off. Stay a while.

Josie: Happy birthday to you happy birthday to you happy birthday -- oh!

Men: Wow!

[Whistle]

Josie: To --

Man: Oh, my God!

Second man: Beautiful!

Josie: To -- um -- happy birthday to --

Ken: David!

Josie: To David happy birthday to you

Man: Whoo!

Second man: Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah!

Ken: What a trouper! I can't believe you --

Josie: Oh, yeah?

Man: No kidding. You were great.

Josie: Really? You mean it?

Ken: Oh, do we mean it? Are you kidding me? Cyndi Lauper, look out!

Man: Josie, everyone loved you.

Josie: Yeah, well, I couldn't believe that my coat fell off.

Man: That was the best part, huh?

Ken: Hey, do you think that maybe you'd want to sing another song --

Josie: Oh, no!

Ken: For me and my fraternity brothers, huh?

Man: Yeah!

Ken: Come on. Come on.

Josie: Uh -- well, sure, why not?

Ken: All right! Ladies and gentlemen, back by popular demand, Miss Josie Watts!

Josie: My coat. Um -- let's see. Uh --

For he's the jolly good fellow for he's the jolly good fellow

All: For he's the jolly good fellow which nobody can deny which nobody can deny which nobody can deny

Ken: Hey!

All: For he's the jolly good fellow for he's the jolly good fellow for he's the jolly good fellow

[Whistle]

John: Lisa, we can leave. We don't have to stay.

Lisa: No, John. I'm bound to run into Jamie once in a while. I'm just going to have to learn to live with it.

Jamie: So you came to talk to your big brother, huh?

Amanda: Can we go and sit at a table?

Jamie: No, we can go on to the dance floor. Excuse us. Come on.

[Jamie laughs]

Amanda: What?

Jamie: Yes. Here we are. Hmm.

Amanda: I just don't understand Samís attitude.

Jamie: Yes, well, I don't think I'll be good to help anybody be understanding tonight.

Sam: Nope, we're just not connecting. Uh-uh.

Mitch: You and I?

Sam: Me and Amanda, man.

Mitch: She's right there. You want to connect? You get up and you go over and connect with her.

Sam: Connect with her, yeah.

Amanda: You know, you don't have to keep dancing with me.

Jamie: Oh, it's ok. I'm in great form tonight.

Sam: Hi. Can I cut in?

Jamie: Well, it's up to the lady.

Amanda: Sorry. You missed your chance.

Jamie: Ooh, I think you're making a mistake.

Amanda: Ow!

Jamie: Oops. Sorry.

Amanda: I think you are. You ought to go home.

Jamie: What, are you crazy? I'm having a great time! Come on, I'll let you buy me another drink.

Amanda: No! No, no, no.

Jamie: Why?

Amanda: All you should be having for the rest of the night is black coffee.

Jamie: Black coffee? Mitch! Hi, buddy! How's it going?

Mitch: It's -- it's going, Jamie, and I am, too.

Jamie: Oh, the party's over?

Mitch: Well, kind of, for me.

Jamie: Mitch.

Mitch: Jamie.

Jamie: You're a good man.

Mitch: You're a good man. Walk, crawl, take a cab, but don't drive tonight.

Jamie: Oh, fear not.

Mitch: See you later.

Jamie: Good night.

Lisa: What's wrong? Or is that none of my business?

Jamie: I had a date with Vicky tonight. It was -- oh, how shall I describe it? A disaster.

Lisa: That's too bad.

Jamie: Oh, it's too bad? Well, it's so bad, you really have to laugh about it. I asked Vicky to marry me.

Lisa: Oh.

Jamie: And she turned me down. Yes! Yes, she did. She said no.

[Jamie laughs]

Lisa: I have to get back to my table.

Jamie: No, wait! Don't go yet. Come on, can't you be my friend?

Lisa: I'm sorry, John. Could you take me home?

John: Well, sure. Let's go get our coats. Come on.

Singers: I bless the day I found you I want to stay around you and so I beg you let it be me don't take this heaven from one if you must cling to someone now and forever let it be me

Felicia: Used to describe all the feelings that I had --

[Door opens]

Mitch: Felicia --

Felicia: Mitch, no.

Mitch: Look, I just --

Felicia: No, no, please, let me go first, all right? I really need to apologize to you.

Mitch: No, you donít.

Felicia: No, yes, yes, I do, honey. I was very confused at Tops. I -- I got emotional. I felt sorry for Matt, I felt sorry for you. I -- well, I just wasn't thinking straight. I know you would never hurt your son. I know how much you love him. I am so sorry. I really overreacted.

Mitch: I shouldn't have stormed out like that.

Felicia: I don't blame you.

Mitch: Well, I do. I mean, I -- I should've talked to you.

Felicia: Next time.

Mitch: I hate scenes like that.

Felicia: Oh, I know you do. You're not very good at them, you know. I think that's one of the reasons that I love you so much. You really are a kind and gentle man.

Mitch: You know, you looked as though you were afraid of me.

Felicia: No. No, never. When you're around, I always know that everything's going to be fine.

Mitch: Well, good. Then let's go to bed.

Felicia: What?

Mitch: I mean, isn't a husband supposed to say things like that to his wife?

Felicia: Well, it's not really, you know, a question of supposed.

Mitch: Mm-hmm?

Felicia: It's just, I mean, you're -- you're never usually that straightforward.

Mitch: Do you mind?

Felicia: Uh -- no. It's just going to take me a little getting used to. I'm the one who usually makes suggestions like that, and you sit there, you know, with your eyebrow raised and glaring at me.

Mitch: Well, not anymore. Things have changed. You see, from now on, I'll try to communicate, really connect.

Felicia: Interesting.

Mitch: A whole new me.

Felicia: All right, whole new you.

Mitch: Mm-hmm?

Felicia: I tell you what --

Mitch: Mm-hmm?

Felicia: Why don't you go in there and I'll meet you in bed. Go on. Go on. Go on. So

Sam: Dumb, huh?

Amanda: Dumb.

Sam: So why are we so dumb?

Amanda: Didn't used to be.

Sam: Look, it's my fault, ok? This opening's taking up all my time and my energy.

Amanda: My working all the time isn't exactly helping things, either.

Sam: And me forgetting our date -- that's just about the topper.

Amanda: "Just about"?

Sam: I'm sorry, ok?

Amanda: You know, I really needed you the other night. Sometimes I feel like you don't need me at all.

Sam: That's not true. I do. I just -- I don't show it often enough. Look, no one, nothing is as important to me as you are.

Amanda: What about tonight?

Sam: I'll make it up to you, I promise -- just after the opening?

Amanda: I love you so much.

Sam: So what do you think? I'm kind of tired of this place.

Amanda: Where do you want to go?

Sam: Home. We can get rid of the sitter.

Amanda: Sounds like a good idea.

Sam: Yeah, and then we'll pray that Alli sleeps through the night.

Amanda: Sounds like the perfect night to me.

Sam: Good, then what are we waiting for?

Amanda: Jamie.

Sam: Well, what about him?

Amanda: I can't go away and leave him like this.

Sam: Then we'll drive him home. Come on.

Amanda: Ahem. Brother dear? Come on. It's time to go home.

Jamie: Home? What's home?

Amanda: A bed. A nice, long night's sleep.

Jamie: No, no, I think I'll hang around here a little while longer.

Amanda: Jamie --

Jamie: No, listen, no more booze, I promise. Really, really, I'm doing just fine. As a matter of fact, they make a great cup of coffee.

Amanda: You shouldn't drive home, Jamie.

Jamie: Not to worry. I'll grab a cab. Believe me, the party's over. Mr. Responsible Jamie Frame is -- is in charge again, ok?

Amanda: Ok.

Jamie: Listen, I love you. Go ahead and go home, be happy.

Amanda: "Be happy."

Sam: Hey, Jamie?

Jamie: Hmm?

Sam: Take it easy, man.

Jamie: Not to worry.

Coral: You can forget about calling a cab. I'm your designated driver.

Ken: Josie's singing at all our parties from now on, huh?

Man: Yeah!

Josie: No, no, no. Once is enough, thanks.

Ken: Oh, come on!

Man: We need you. How can we make it through another year without your warmth, your beauty?

Second man: Shut up, Sean. You're making the girl nauseous.

Ken: Hey, hey, hey, lighten up! We're just trying to get the girl to come back and sing for us again, right?

Josie: Oh --

Man: Well, talk to her agent, right, Josie?

Ken: Hey, I want to be your agent. Actually, I want to be your anything. How about it, Jos?

Josie: Oh, I --

Man: Come here, somebody wants to talk to you.

Josie: Well, who?

Man: You'll see.

Josie: I don't really know anyone here.

Man: I know.

Josie: Well, then who wants to talk to me?

Man: Me.

Josie: What?

Man: No, I just wanted to get you away from those jerks so we could be alone.

Josie: Oh, I -- I really should get back to the guys.

Man: You know, I wonder if Matt Cory appreciates how beautiful you are.

Josie: Oh --

Man: Especially when you take this raincoat off.

Josie: Look, I've really got to get --

Man: Wait, wait, wait. I'm not finished yet.

Josie: Well, great, I don't want to hear any more.

Man: Ok, ok, fine. I'll stop talking. What did you do that for?

Josie: Well, I guess I just wasn't in the mood for cake. Too many calories, you know?

Ken: Hey, where are you going?

Josie: I'm going to get out of here.

Man: Where you going, Josie?

Josie: Oh! Thank you. How could I forget? Thanks.

Ken: Oh, no, no, no, thank you. With this little appearance here of yours, our stock has gone way up with the frat guys. They have a whole new respect for us, as a matter of fact.

Josie: Good. See you. Bye, guys!

Man: See ya!

Second man: You're welcome anytime.

Third man: Great having you.

Josie: Thanks.

Man: Hey, will you come sing at my birthday?

Josie: Sure.

Matt: You'd better get back inside.

Rachel: Please, I want to talk to you.

Matt: You don't have a coat. You'll catch a cold.

Rachel: Matthew, all right, you can run away. You can run away from me every time you see me coming, but you can't run away from who you are. You're my son. Nothing you can do can change that. What happened with Mitch and Janice I wish had never happened. But I've never for one minute regretted having you. I love you. Certainly you can feel that.

John: Sharlene, what are you doing here?

Felicia: Honey, I'm sorry I took so long.

Mitch: This Noah Grady?

Matt: Are you finished?

Rachel: No, I'm not finished.

Rachel: Do you remember when you were little, whenever you were anxious because I was going away on a trip? I used to explain to you that my love was like a force field wrapped all around you for your comfort and reassurance, and that that force field was very strong, no matter how far apart we ever were. No time, space, evil could destroy it because love is very strong. Matthew, that wasn't just a story for an anxious little boy. That's the truth. That love is still wrapped all around you, and nothing you can do to me or to yourself will destroy it. I wrapped you in that love so many years ago, and I've been adding to it ever since, and it's very, very strong. Honey, it's there for you, for me, forever.

Matt: Mom? Don't go.

Coral: Well, what do you say, doc? Let me drive you home?
