Caroline: Yes. It's the centerpiece of your collection, and it should be here so they can see it as they come in the front door.

Sam: Hey, look --

Caroline: What?

Sam: I don't recognize them. It's like somebody else did them.

Caroline: You, my friend, are coming down with a classic case of the opening-night jitters.

Sam: Look, this isn't jitters, Caroline.

Caroline: Well, what is it?

Sam: It's panic, ok? It's just too much. It's -- it's all on the line here, man.

Caroline: Yeah, but that's how it's supposed to be. Everything's going to be on the line. It's the difference between an artist and a hack.

Sam: But which one am I? Before, I knew. And then I look at this stuff and I think --

Caroline: Sam, calm down.

Sam: What happens if it's a bust? And what happens if it's all just one big flop?

Caroline: Oh --

[Sam sighs]

Evan: That's video match over there.

Amanda: Yeah.

Evan: You nervous?

Amanda: I'm getting my thoughts together.

Evan: This is your first big assignment.

Amanda: Thanks. You're a lot of help.

Evan: Ok. What can I do to make it easier on you?

Amanda: Stop making me nervous.

Evan: Ok. You can't go in wearing that.

Amanda: I've never taken it off before.

Evan: Has to go.

Amanda: I know. I know.

Singer: Santa, baby

Woman: Very impressive, but redundant.

Jake: What do you mean, redundant?

Woman: Well, that documentary you did on the police was all I needed to see.

Jake: Well, that still has to be cut some, you know.

Woman: Well, it was a little flabby, unlike its director. Come here.

Jake: I -- I think I've shot some other tape that you've seen.

Woman: You did?

Jake: Yeah. Lisa Grady.

Woman: Lisa?

Jake: Right -- dark hair, big, beautiful brown eyes.

Woman: You did that tape?

Jake: Mm-hmm, yeah.

Woman: Oh, very good. Of course, that girl would be almost impossible to make look bad.

Jake: How do you think she's going to do?

Woman: Do?

Jake: Yeah, getting a -- a date through video match?

Woman: Oh. Honey, be serious, would you? That girl is going to have more men after her than she can count.

Singer: Check off my Christmas list ba-loop-be-do, Santa, honey

Jason: Well, you're pounding that stuff to death.

Sharlene: Your sandwich is on the table.

Jason: I tried to talk to you about John.

Sharlene: Don't start, Jason.

Jason: Didn't figure he'd pull something like this.

Sharlene: He must have had his reasons.

Jason: Well, I think he should at least have called. I didn't figure him for that kind of guy.

Sharlene: He's not, Jason.

Jason: Well, listen to you. You're still defending him, aren't you?

Sharlene: Just leave me alone, Jason. I don't want to talk about it. I am over it now.

Jason: Yeah, I can see.

[Jason sighs]

John: Hey, Jase.

Jason: John.

John: Sharlene -- did she say anything? Was she upset that I didn't call?

Jason: Well, yeah, yeah, she was a little upset.

John: Well, what did she say?

Jason: Uh -- she was more disappointed. She didn't say much.

John: Well, what did she say?

Jason: I don't remember exactly.

John: All right. What did you say?

Jason: Hey, what is this, a third degree?

John: You didn't tell her, did you? You didn't tell her anything, did you?

Cass: Nice of you to give me top billing.

Zack: Well, I would have done more than that to get you in this office.

Cass: Well, the only reason you had to do any convincing at all is because I've never been much of a nine-to-fiver.

Zack: Well, look, you take some of my caseload, and you can keep any hours you like, buddy.

Cass: Zack, this sounds like the beginning of a beautiful partnership. Delilah seems to feel right at home already, don't you, honey? "Yeah, Cass."

[Zack chuckles]

Cass: She speaks.

Nicole: Hey, you guys.

Cass: Hey!

Nicole: You're famous.

Zack: Hey, how you doing?

Nicole: Look, you made the papers!

Zack: Oh, what do we have here? Oh, Dell Mortonís "Inside Bay City" column.

Cass: Tell me what Dell says.

Zack: Ok. "Legal Eagles team up in what promises to be the most dynamic law office in Bay City."

Cass: Hmm, I like "dynamic."

Zack: It also says, "Cass Winthrop and Zack Edwards are two exciting and innovative attorneys who are the cream of the hometown crop."

Cass: Hey, hey, hey, Mac must have called this one in.

[Nicole laughs]

Zack: Oh, yeah, Macís mentioned. Iris -- there's a quote by Evan.

Cass: What's he say?

Zack: "Winthrop and Edwards will continue to represent Cory Publishing, even though they will cease to be involved in day-to-day operations. We shall miss them."

Cass: We'll miss them, too.

Nicole: Oh! Hey, it came! Great! Oh, fantastic. It looks perfect in here. Why isn't it lit up?

Cass: You are crazy, do you know that?

Nicole: You're the pinball freak.

Cass: Thank you.

Nicole: You're welcome. Hey, Zack, don't you love it?

Zack: I like it, but I don't absolutely understand what it's doing here.

Cass: Oh, it's here to help us relax, just like Delilah.

Nicole: Oh? Who's Delilah?

Cass: My focus. Delilah, Nicole. Nicole, Delilah.

Zack: I don't know about this, Cass. A pinball machine in a law office.

Cass: Now, Zack, it's not just any old law office here. I mean, we're talking, what, new and "dynamic," right?

Nicole: Right.

Cass: We are talking --

Cass and Nicole: Innovative. Right.

[Phone rings]

Zack: Excuse me.

Cass: Certainly.

Nicole: Let's plug it in.

Cass: Ok.

Nicole: Look.

Cass: What do you got?

Zack: Hello?

Nicole: A whole bag of quarters.

Zack: Oh, Ronnie, hi. Yeah, I just read it. Thanks. Yeah, we're going to need all the luck we can get.

Nicole: All right. Whoo!

Zack: Yeah, it has been a long time.

Cass: Can I have the honors?

Nicole: Oh.

Zack: Yeah, I was thinking about you, too.

Nicole: You want to flip?

Cass: My gift.

Zack: Well, you know, it's been crazy around here.

Nicole: All right.

Zack: Yeah. No, you know what? In fact, I was going to call you.

Nicole: All right, here we go.

Zack: Yeah, would you like to go to the snowflake ball? Terrific!

Courtney: Hello?

Zack: Uh -- something came up. I'll have to call you back, ok?

Nicole: Whoa! Oh! Oh!

Zack: Yeah, me, too. Bye-bye. Courtney?

Courtney: This is definitely a bad time. You know, what's going on? Pinball machine, boxes --

Zack: Um -- Cass is moving in.

Courtney: Ok.

Zack: So, what brings you here?

Courtney: Um -- a couple of things, one being my conscience.

Zack: What about?

Courtney: What I said about Julie Ann.

Zack: About her and Rick, you mean?

Courtney: Yeah. Maybe I'm too cynical. Besides, it's none of my business, anyway.

Zack: Uh -- that's right.

Courtney: And you haven't called since I shot off my big, fat mouth.

Zack: Like I said, I have been pretty busy.

Courtney: Yeah, busy. Ok. Well, I'd better get to the other reason for me being here.

Zack: Ok.

Courtney: I was wondering, do you have a date for the snowflake ball?

[Christmas music plays]

Woman: I have to warn you about something.

Jake: What?

Woman: Well, not all of my clients are as photogenic as Lisa.

Jake: Uh -- "other clients."

Woman: Of course. What else would we be talking about? But -- you know, I mean, you're here for the job.

Jake: Yeah, yeah, but on the phone, I thought you -- I thought you mentioned something about a wider range of projects.

Woman: I have a wide range of clients.

Jake: Am I losing my mind or did we talk about film?

Woman: Short subjects. Very short.

Jake: So, basically, what you're saying is the only thing I would be taping is people looking for dates?

Woman: Oh, that's what auntie Rose does. I bring people together.

Jake: Right, I understand that, but like I said on the phone, I -- I thought you were talking about a wider range of things.

Auntie Rose: Honey -- Jake, let me tell you how wide the range is. Now, a customer comes to me, pays me a certain amount of money. He or she gets a videotape mate -- hence the name "video match."

Jake: Yeah. Well, you've seen my resume. And at the risk of sounding pretentious, I think I'm a little overqualified for simple glamour tapings.

Auntie Rose: Oh, sweetheart, we are all overqualified. I myself have a masters in political science. But we all need to make a living. Now, I have a very successful franchise here. You talked about branching out. Who knows? That's what makes life so great, you know?

Jake: Yeah, I'm finding that out.

Auntie Rose: Well, I have more customers than I can handle. Since you'd be working on a commission, this job could turn out to be very good to you.

Man: Ring-a-ling

Woman: Ring-a-ling

Jake: What type of commission are we talking about?

Auntie Rose: Well, you're talking about 10% of the application fee.

Jake: 10% of what Lisa paid?

Auntie Rose: It adds up. You'd need a calculator.

Jake: I really appreciate it, auntie Rose, but I don't think this is what I'm looking for.

Auntie Rose: Oh, you're looking to be the next Steven Spielberg, and who can blame you?

Jake: It was nice meeting you, all right?

Auntie Rose: Jake, wait. Let me ask you something. You know a lot of people, right?

[Jake sighs]

Jake: Yeah.

Auntie Rose: Single?

Jake: Some.

Auntie Rose: Anyone who might be interested in signing up here, like Lisa?

Jake: I'm afraid not. I think Lisa Grady was a special case.

Woman: You hear silver bells

Man: The corner Santa

John: What did you do? Did you just let her wait? Why do you have to lie to me, Jason? Why couldn't you have just picked up the phone and given her a call?

Jason: I forgot.

John: Oh, come on!

Jason: Hey, if it was that important to you, you should have done it yourself.

John: I -- how could I do it myself? I was in Ogden all day picking up supplies. And as soon as I got back, I got your urgent message to get to the gallery!

Jason: Yeah, well, I did it to protect Sharlie.

John: Protect her from what?

Jason: You wouldn't understand.

John: No, I guess I wouldnít.

Jason: I couldn't think of any other way to stop you from dating her, that's why.

John: Why do you want to stop me from dating her?

Jason: Because I don't think that would be good for her, all right?

John: Well, who cares what you think, Jason?

Jason: That's the problem -- nobody cares a hoot what I think about anything around here anymore.

John: Look, I can't even believe that you would do this -- even you!

Jason: John, my sister is the most important person in the world to me. I love her.

John: Oh, and this is how you show how much you love her? By letting her think that I didn't care enough about her to call?

Jason: She has been real hurt in the past. I don't want to ever see that happen to her again.

John: Who are you to decide what is right for her?

Jason: I don't think you're the right man for her!

John: Well, what about what she thinks?

Jason: She doesn't think. That's always been her problem. She never does!

John: No, you're the problem!

Jason: Me?

John: Yes! You don't want Sharlene to have a man in her life because it might mean less time for taking care of you.

Jason: I want her to be happy.

John: And I bet she's real happy right now.

Jason: John, you're a nice guy. You're a good man, but you have never been responsible for any other person in your whole life -- just like me. And what long-term commitment have you ever kept? You ran away from your own family, didn't you?

John: Listen, Jason, whatever Sharlene and I decide is our business. Understand?

Jason: Yeah. But don't you ever hurt her.

Mary: Casa caribe?

Vince: Hey, you know how long it has been since we have kicked up our heels?

Mary: But they play salsa there.

Vince: What else would they play? Tito Puente, Ray Barretto -- all my favorite guys.

Mary: You figure that one can lindy to Tito Puente?

Vince: Hey, you're a terrific dancer. I will teach you salsa.

Mary: Oh, really?

Vince: Yeah.

Mary: No, I don't want to --

Vince: Merengue.

Mary: Oh -- for goodness sakes -- it's not --

Vince: Well, you could be --

Mary: It's the samba or something.

Vince: No, no, no, no -- you don't -- it's like this.

Mary: No, let me explain. Vince, please. Vince, this is a hospital. I work here.

Vince: So what? What is -- what? You can't merengue where you work?

Mary: Let me explain something to you, sweetheart. Do I come to the restaurant when you're working --?

Vince: Ooh --

Mary: That's Pilara.

Vince: What's she doing here?

Mary: Uh -- I don't know. I'm going to go talk to her.

Vince: Listen -- listen, her attitude stinks.

Mary: It doesn't Matter. It's my attitude that counts.

Vince: Well, why don't you wait till she asks for help?

Mary: Because I don't want to give up this chance. Do me a big favor, love, and just go back to the restaurant. Meet me back here at 5:00 with your dancing shoes on. Goodbye. Hi, Pilara.

Pilara: Well, well -- Mrs. Mac.

Mary: What are you doing here?

Pilara: Getting my hard cast changed for a soft one.

Mary: Really? Oh, it must be healing very quickly.

Pilara: That's what they say.

Mary: So, what are you reading?

Pilara: Oh, I'm just looking at pictures.

Mary: Pretty girl.

Pilara: Pretty? She's a knockout. Man, if I looked like that --

Mary: What?

Pilara: I could have anything -- big bucks, any man I wanted.

Mary: You know something? I believe you can have anything. And not just because you're good-looking -- which you are -- but because you're smart.

Pilara: You never change.

Mary: What do you mean?

Pilara: No Matter what I say, you always come out with some Mary Poppins junk.

Mary: I have never lied to you.

Pilara: Hey, that's what I ought to call you. Check it out -- Mary Poppins.

Mary: I've been called worse. In fact, I rather like it. Perhaps I should start carrying a small umbrella.

Pilara: Well, at least you try, man.

Mary: What?

Pilara: To be funny. Of course, you never really are, you know. I mean, it never really comes off.

Mary: Well, hell. And here I was counting on a second career as a standup comic.

Pilara: Do yourself a favor -- stick to what you do.

Mary: I'm not always sure I do that very well, either.

Pilara: Sure you do. You're ok.

Mary: Well, you have never said that to me before.

Pilara: So I'm saying it now. I mean, you're not bad. I mean, at least -- at least you can admit you're not perfect, you know.

Mary: I want you to do me a favor.

Pilara: Huh, I should've known. Tell her something nice, and she wants something already.

Mary: Oh, no -- no, I donít. Nope, I want to give you something. This is my -- my home number and my address, just in case you ever want to talk.

Pilara: Thanks.

Mary: So, how are you things going with Ruben?

P.A. Announcer: Telephone for Mary McKinnon. Mary McKinnon, please.

Mary: I'm sorry. I hope some day you do want to talk.

Ruben: Hey-hey, what's going on?

Pilara: Oh, nothing. I'm still waiting!

Ruben: They haven't taken that thing off yet? Dag gone, how long is it going to take them?

Pilara: Soon.

Ruben: It better be. I just want you out of here.

[Pilara sighs]

Ruben: I want everything the way it was before. Back to normal.

Sam: Look, those aren't just paintings up there. That's me up there. It's me.

Caroline: Look at me, Sam. Do you really think I've been wasting my time playing around the last few months?

Sam: No.

Caroline: Wasting my time, your time, everybody else's?

Sam: Caroline, you're just one person.

Caroline: Yeah, one person who's very tasteful, who thinks she's an expert. To hell with that -- I am an expert. You are good.

Sam: But not great.

Caroline: You could be. All you need's a break like anybody else. And tomorrow's going to be a brilliant beginning.

Sam: And you're not nervous at all, right?

Caroline: Oh, of course I am, but it's not because I don't believe in your art.

Sam: How can you stay looking so cool at a time like this?

Caroline: Because it's in the hands of the gods. There's nothing more I can do. Just try and relax.

Sam: Oh, yeah, relax.

Caroline: It's difficult.

Sam: Try impossible. The way I feel right -- you can't understand.

Caroline: You think only artists want recognition? I have my dreams, too.

Sam: I thought this gallery was your dream.

Caroline: Oh, this isn't only it. I fought all my life. I fought to succeed. I started with nothing, and I did.

Sam: So when does it end for you?

Caroline: I don't know. But I'm moving on, Sam. And you're coming with me. Together, we're going to knock this art world right over. Ok?

Sam: Yeah. Sure.

[Music plays]

Amanda: So the first thing that you do is make a tape, right?

Auntie Rose: No, honey, you make the tape. The men you're interested in don't want to see my face.

Amanda: Well, what I mean is, you provide the photographer, right?

Auntie Rose: We do everything! And it's all covered for a small fee.

Amanda: So then I just have to wait and see?

Auntie Rose: No, you won't have to wait very long, pretty little thing like you.

Amanda: You sure?

Auntie Rose: How did you find out about us?

Amanda: Through an advertisement.

Auntie Rose: Now, didn't it say in that ad that video match has an 85% success rate?

Amanda: That's pretty good.

Auntie Rose: Pretty good? Oh, that's fantastic! I mean, we bring people together here. These are good-looking people just like yourself.

Amanda: I'm not very good at meeting men.

Auntie Rose: So? That's no reason to be alone.

Amanda: But there's no guarantee.

Auntie Rose: Oh, honey, for you, I could probably guarantee Tom Selleck. Oh -- I'm sorry, he got hitched. I forgot. But he called last night to see about sending his tape back.

Amanda: Tom Selleck?

Auntie Rose: I was just kidding.

Amanda: Oh.

Auntie Rose: But I got a whole lot of good-lookers on this tape, you know? And all you have to do is make out an application and write a check -- or charge it, if that's more convenient.

Amanda: Aren't there a couple of sample tapes that I can look at first?

Auntie Rose: Oh, I'm sorry. You got to be a member first.

Amanda: Oh. Yeah.

Auntie Rose: But I'll tell you what I'm going to do. I have to go check on something. Why don't you just fill out a basic application? I'm going to go out there for just a minute. I'll be right back. And when I come back, I'll see if I can rustle up an 8-by-10 that might interest you, ok?

Amanda: What are you doing here?

Evan: It's cold out there.

Amanda: Auntie -- Auntie Rose is going to be back here any second! Now, would you please --

Evan: Auntie? You mean, you have relatives that work here?

Amanda: No! She's the owner.

[Southern accent] "Call me Auntie Rose."

Evan: Well, listen, when auntie comes backie, why don't I just pretend that I'm a prospect?

Amanda: [Normal voice] Right. You look about as lonely as -- as Tom Selleck. You're going to ruin everything.

Auntie Rose: What's going on here?

Singer: Anybody seen her

[Music plays]

Evan: "Going on" -- that's what I want to know. That's why I came in here to -- to ask you about your service.

Auntie Rose: No, no, no, you know each other. I heard you.

Evan: Know each other?

Amanda: Of course we know each other. We're brother and sister.

Evan: Yeah, I'm the brother.

Amanda: And I didn't want him in here because I was afraid that he would make me self-conscious.

Evan: Me? No, no, see, everybody makes her self-conscious.

Auntie Rose: Are you married, brother?

Amanda: Him? No! Who would want to marry him? He can't even get a date.

Auntie Rose: Well, we do have a family rate here at video match.

Evan: Oh, really?

[Phone rings]

Auntie Rose: Yeah.

Evan: That's great.

Auntie Rose: Excuse me. Video match. Well, not that I know of, honey. Uh -- yeah, I'll look. Sure, I'll call you back. I'm sorry, a client left something behind. I've got to go find out. Let me -- I'll be right back.

Evan: Ok.

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Evan: Take your time.

Singer: Better watch out you better not cry you better not pout

Evan: "Brother and sister --"

Amanda: Well, I didn't hear you coming up with anything.

Evan: Well, actually, that was quick thinking. I like it.

Amanda: You should have just stayed put!

Evan: What, and turn into a Popsicle? No -- ok, ok. I'm going to go back out there. But how long do you think you're going to be?

Amanda: Not very long. I already have a lot of good stuff.

Evan: But you know what'd really make this, like, front and center? I mean, really hot?

Amanda: Well, I can't wait to hear this.

Evan: You've got to make one of those Auntie Rose videotapes.

Amanda: I should, shouldn't I?

Evan: Yeah, see, this is your article, Amanda. And that means it has to be from your point of view all the way.

Amanda: Auntie -- she's no dummy. What if she finds me out?

Evan: You know what I say? You got to take a risk.

Amanda: Well, what do you think I can find?

Evan: Who knows? I mean, there may be more to this place than meets the eye. You got to shoot the works, get it on the front burner.

Amanda: You think this is front burner?

Evan: Yes, if you go all the way with it!

Amanda: Yeah?

Evan: Yeah, front burner! Hell, this is going to be a "Brava" cover story. Go get 'em, kid.

Singer: I'm telling you why Santa Claus is coming to town yeah

Mary: What are you doing here?

Ruben: Hey, what do you know? It's that sexy little shrink again.

Mary: Did you come to pick up Pilara?

Ruben: No, baby! See, I came to pick up you.

Mary: Has she gotten her cast off yet?

Ruben: No, no, no, let's not talk about her. Let's talk about us. See, this is our chance. Now, see, we can go away together. You know what I mean? Nobody ain't going to find out.

Mary: I know what you did to her.

Ruben: What are you talking about? Huh? What'd she tell you?

Mary: She didn't tell me anything. I figured it out. And I want you to know that I am going to do everything in my power to stop it.

Ruben: Oh, the hell you are.

Mary: Then you admit that you beat her?

Ruben: No, I don't admit nothing! Yo, let me tell you something, all right? You had better stay out of our lives, do you understand me? Huh? You had better start minding your own business.

Pilara: What are you doing?

Ruben: What'd you tell her?

Mary: Nothing. I figured it out for myself.

Ruben: Let her answer for herself. What'd you tell her?

Pilara: Nothing, Ruben. I swear, I don't know what she's been telling you, but she's lying. I didn't say nothing.

Mary: I'm sorry. I am. I didn't mean to start --

Pilara: Why don't you leave us alone, damn it. I never should have trusted you!

Mary: I can help you, Pilara.

Pilara: We don't want your help. I mean, who do you think you are? Butting into our lives, ruining everything. I'm sick of it. You hear me? I want you out of my life. Do you understand? For good!

Nicole: Ok. Here we go, Zack.

Zack: All right.

Nicole: You can do it.

Courtney: Come on.

Nicole: Concentrate here.

Zack: Here we go.

Nicole: All right.

Courtney: Here we go.

Nicole: Oh. Yes. Yes.

Zack: Come on, come on.

Cass: You can't even get it through up here, man.

Courtney: Come on!

Cass: 22.

Nicole: That's all right.

Courtney: Yeah, good, good, good, yeah.

Nicole: Oh, flip!

Cass: Use that flipper, man!

Nicole: Oh, Zack! 84 points!

Cass: Pathetic!

Nicole: We gave you two balls.

Cass: Zack, you may be a brilliant lawyer, but you are not a pinball wizard, man.

Nicole: Get out of here, it's my turn.

Zack: Ah.

Cass: Ok, this tilt make 88. Do your worst.

Courtney: 84? Hmm.

Zack: Right. You think Clarence Darrow got started like this?

Courtney: I bet old Clarence knew how to use the flippers.

Zack: So, how are things going at headquarters?

Courtney: Why don't you come down and see for yourself? Or won't Ronnie feel -- sit well with that?

Zack: Courtney --

Courtney: How long have we known each other, Zack?

Zack: A long time.

Courtney: May I presume that I understand a lot of things are going with you?

Zack: You may so presume.

Courtney: You are feeling guilty that you asked Ronnie to the snowflake ball.

Zack: Well, I wouldn't say "guilty" is the right word.

Courtney: Well, you don't want to see me hurt, do you?

Zack: Yeah, that's right.

Courtney: I'm not, so don't feel bad, ok?

Zack: But it's just that --

Courtney: What is it just?

Zack: I like you, Courtney, but I like Ronnie, too.

Courtney: That works out so well for you, doesn't it?

Zack: What does?

Courtney: Two women, no commitment.

Zack: Well, yeah.

Courtney: I'm a big girl. I can handle it. Ahem.

[Pinball machine buzzes]

Nicole: Oh, guys, look! Oh! Oh! 4,000,355,000 -- A new world record!

Cass: Yeah, well, records were made to be broken. Give me a quarter, give me a quarter.

Nicole: All right, all right. Here. Oop!

Cass: Hey!

Nicole: Oh, sorry.

Cass: Gee, nice throw.

[Nicole laughs]

Zack: I see one over here.

Cass: Where?

Zack: Over there.

Cass: Over where?

John: Sharlene, I need to talk to you.

Sharlene: No.

John: I can explain what happened last night.

Sharlene: I don't want to hear what happened last --

John: Look, I'm not leaving here until I do.

Sharlene: You stood me up.

John: No, I didnít.

Sharlene: Well, you weren't here.

John: For a reason.

Sharlene: Look, I felt like a fool, John. I sat there all dressed up and I waited and I waited, and, gee, couldn't you even bother to call?

John: It was Jason.

Sharlene: What's he got to do with this?

John: He didn't want me to go out with you, so he called me when I was in Ogden picking up supplies. He told me there was an emergency at the art gallery and I had to get back right away. I told him that I needed to call you, and he said "no, no, don't worry about it." He'd take care of that.

Sharlene: I can't believe it.

John: He doesn't think that I'm the right man for you.

Sharlene: Well, who gave him the right to decide what is right for me?

John: That's what I told him.

Sharlene: Boy! Well, he just never knows when to quit, does he?

John: You know, Sharlene, I -- I'm sorry.

Sharlene: It's not your fault. Oh -- I should have known. You -- you never would have done something like that to me. You're too kind, you're too sensitive.

John: Yeah, come on, now. Don't get carried away. Don't think of me as -- as such a good guy.

Sharlene: What'd I say? What -- what?

John: No, no, it's nothing you said. It's just something that I have to take care of. Something I needed to do for a long time.

Cass: Quarters for pinball.

Caroline: I love pinball.

Cass: Aha. Well, Nicole gave this to Zack and me as a -- as a gift to commemorate our going into practice together.

Caroline: What a gal. So amusing.

Zack: Caroline! You've never met my -- my friend Courtney walker.

Caroline: Oh.

Courtney: Hello.

Zack: Caroline Stafford is about to open the new art gallery.

Courtney: Oh, I pass that on my way to work.

Caroline: Hey, here's an invitation for the opening.

Courtney: Terrific. Thank you. Well, I'd better get going. Take care, Cass, Nicole.

Cass: Ok, we'll see you, Courtney.

Caroline: Nice to meet you.

Courtney: Nice to meet you, too.

Zack: I'll call you, ok?

Courtney: I know.

Caroline: I almost forgot why I came here in the first place.

Nicole: I doubt it.

Caroline: An office-warming gift.

Cass: Oh.

Caroline: A true blue Aussie original. Isn't it wonderful?

Cass: Oh, Caroline --

Zack: Oh, that's great.

Caroline: A mate of mine in Sydney has a gallery. It's aboriginal art.

Cass: Oh, wow. Nicole, what do you think?

Nicole: I didn't realize there was such a wealth of artists in Australia. You never should have left.

Zack: Why don't I put this someplace for the time being?

Caroline: But of course I want something in return.

Nicole: I'll bet you do.

Caroline: A game on the pinball machine.

Cass: Here's your quarter. Good catch.

[Caroline chuckles]

Cass: Let me take your coat.

Caroline: Oh, please! I'm ready. Ok.

Cass: Ok.

Zack: Steady. Just be cool.

Nicole: Yeah. Have you ever defended a murderess, Zack?

Zack: No, and I'm not about to now.

Nicole: Ugh. Not exactly subtle, is she?

[Cass and Caroline laugh]

Zack: What do you know about her?

Nicole: All I know is that every chance she gets, she's all over Cass like a cheap suit.

Zack: Nothing about her background?

Nicole: No. Remember the movie "it came from outer space"?

Zack: You know, whenever I'm up against a new lawyer, I make it my business to find out everything I can about their background.

Nicole: It can't hurt to be informed.

Zack: Yeah. What it does in that situation -- it makes me feel less intimidated, and it makes my opponent more vulnerable to my attack. Just a thought.

Jake: We -- we don't have any medical coverage.

Woman: Your job has no medical plan?

Jake: I'm -- I'm between jobs right now. Can I -- can I pay by the month?

Woman: How much can you handle?

Jake: Uh -- $200 a month -- would that be all right?

Woman: I have to check with the business office.

Jake: About what?

Woman: Just sign here, Mr. McKinnon. I'll get back to you.

Jake: Vince.

Vince: Hey, Jake, hi.

Jake: I just -- I just saw Mary a couple minutes ago.

Vince: Yeah, I was at her office. I'm a little early to pick her up. What brings you here?

Jake: I'm just paying some bills.

Vince: Oh, you need any help?

Jake: Did I ask for any?

Vince: It's there if you want it.

Jake: I don't, all right?

Vince: Uh -- you -- how's the job search coming?

Jake: I've only been out of a job for two days now.

Vince: Yeah, but you are looking?

Jake: Of course I'm looking. What do you think?

Vince: Hey, wait a minute. Wait a minute. This is me you're talking to, huh?

Jake: You don't understand, Vince.

Vince: Hey, hey, hey. Don't tell me I don't understand. Don't you think I've ever stood on an unemployment line? I had four kids to feed. When I worked sometimes, there wasn't even enough money. That's why Mary went to work at the Loves'. That's why our marriage went to hell. Don't tell me I don't understand. 

Amanda: Oh, Sam, this place looks great.

Evan: It sure does. And I'm going to see you tomorrow night, right?

Sam: Yeah.

Evan: Ok.

Amanda: Oh --

Sam: I'm so glad you're here. Oh --

Amanda: Me, too. Tomorrow is going to be great. Hmm.

Sam: Just keep saying that, ok?

Amanda: Hey, come on! They are going to love you.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: I just wish daddy was here to see it.

Sam: Yeah, so does Caroline.

Amanda: Why?

Sam: Well, she sees Mac Cory as a prospective buyer, but don't worry -- I set her straight.

Amanda: He loves your work.

Sam: Well, I know, but -- look, I don't want the Cory's buying any of my work. See, that's the best thing about this show -- I got it on my own. It wasn't bought with family money.

Vince: Are you ready for merengue?

Mary: How about we just go to the movies? Oh! Better -- better idea. We could stay home. We could send out for pizza. We could watch TV. It's Thursday night. All your favorites.

Vince: Chateau caribe.

Mary: You're really adamant about this, aren't you?

Vince: Unless you'd like me to go alone. Huh-huh?

Mary: Right. Someplace that's full of young, beautiful, unattached women in short skirts, right? Forget it, Charlie.

Vince: What's the Matter?

Mary: Nothing. Nothing. I'm fine. Let's go.

John: Oh, Mary -- listen, I'm glad I caught you.

Mary: Hi, John.

Vince: Oh, hey, John. How's it going?

John: Pretty good. I was wondering if I could speak to you for a moment. You don't mind if I borrow your bride, do you?

Vince: Don't worry about it.

John: Good. I'll only be a minute.

Vince: Ok.

John: Mary, listen, I'm awfully sorry that I missed our appointment the other day.

Mary: Oh, that's ok.

John: I was wondering if I could set up another time.

Mary: Sure. What would be good for you?

John: Well, whenever you can fit me in.

Mary: How about the beginning of next week?

John: Fine. That'll be good.

Mary: All right. I'll call you tomorrow. We'll set a definite time, definite day.

John: Thanks. I'll talk to you then.

Mary: Mm-hmm.

John: Mary --

Mary: What?

John: I was wondering why you never called when I missed my appointment.

Mary: I billed you for it. And I guess I'm learning.

John: What do you mean, you're learning?

Mary: That you can't make people want help. They have to want it themselves. And sometimes people do not make a decision that they have a problem and need help. I'm awfully glad you did. Bye.

Sharlene: I know what you did.

Jason: Hi, Sharlie. Don't we have some ham in here somewhere?

Sharlene: Look at me.

Jason: What's the matter with you?

Sharlene: How could you hurt me like that?

Jason: All right, I admit, maybe my tactics were wrong.

Sharlene: Maybe?

Jason: I did it because I loved you.

Sharlene: You love me?

Jason: Sharlie, you don't have a real good batting record when it comes to men.

Sharlene: What have you got against John?

Jason: I don't have anything against John. I don't think he's good enough for you. I guess I don't think anybody's good enough for you. I want you to have the best --

Sharlene: I want to be left alone! I want to make my own decisions about my own future!

Jason: You're right.

Sharlene: You really mean that?

Jason: Yeah, I'm sorry about last night. I am just overprotective, and I screw everything up.

Sharlene: I am going to see John whenever I want to.

Jason: Ok, and I will stay out of it from here on in.

Sharlene: Did you think you could get away with this? Did you think that I wouldn't find out? I --

Jason: Sister, all I want is you to be happy. All right?

Sharlene: Oh, you big fool. Why do you always make such a mess of things?

Jason: Forgive me?

Sharlene: Oh, I always do, don't I?

[Christmas music plays]

Auntie Rose: Hello, do come in -- oh. It's you.

Jake: Is there health insurance that comes with this job?

Auntie Rose: Group insurance? That's expensive.

Jake: I won't do the job without it.

Auntie Rose: Well, I can probably set up a plan.

Jake: And your equipment -- I'm going to need access to it for outside projects.

Auntie Rose: Oh! Forget it.

Jake: Auntie Rose, where are you going to get another camera operator that can make your people look as good as I can? You've seen my tape.

Auntie Rose: Probably we can arrange something.

Singer: Better watch out you better not cry

Jake: Oh, and as far as the commission goes, I -- I think I'm going to need 12% of the application fee.

Auntie Rose: 11%.

Jake: No way!

Auntie Rose: Uh -- 11% now, 12% after six months.

Singer: Santa Claus is coming to town

Jake: Three months.

Auntie Rose: Deal. Welcome to video match, Jake. I think you're going to have a great future here.

Cass: Come on, baby, 632. We're going for a new Australian record.

Caroline: Yes!

Cass: 645 -- oh, no! Tilt.

[Cass makes buzzer sound]

Caroline: Ahem.

Nicole: Just when I'm out of quarters. Oh, well.

Caroline: Oh, well.

Nicole: I'm so looking forward to Samís opening.

Caroline: Are you?

Nicole: What are you planning to wear, Caroline?

Caroline: What am I going to wear? I haven't even really thought about it. I'll find something.

Nicole: Well, I'm working on a whole new line.

Caroline: Oh, are you, now? What -- clothes?

Nicole: Yes!

Caroline: Oh.

Nicole: I call it success, and it's everything from cocktail to evening gowns.

Caroline: How nice for you.

Nicole: I would love for you to be wearing the first of my line tomorrow night.

Caroline: The first?

Nicole: Yes. Well, if you don't want to wear it, now, you don't have to.

Caroline: Well, let's put it this way -- I'll -- I'll come by tomorrow afternoon, all right?

Nicole: Perfect. I'll be waiting.

Caroline: Ah. Boys, I wish you every success.

Cass: Thank you, Caroline.

Zack: And the same to you.

Caroline: And if I'm needing a lawyer soon, I'll certainly be needing someone to represent me, Zack.

Zack: Hey, that's great.

Caroline: We'll be talking. Bye, now.

Nicole: Ciao.

Cass: Ciao.

Cass: You actually talked to Caroline. And you were nice.

Nicole: I can be nice.

Cass: What's going on, Nicole?

[Cass laughs]

Nicole: Me first.

Cass: No, me first.

[Knock on door]

John: Whew. I'm back.

Sharlene: Yeah, I can see that.

John: I'm -- I'm sorry I left in such a hurry.

Sharlene: Where'd you go?

John: Well, I wanted to make sure that I could see something through. Not run, not make excuses.

Sharlene: I don't understand.

John: Well, that's all right. You don't have to -- for now, anyway. All I want to do is to -- is to ask you a question. Do you know about the snowflake ball?

Sharlene: Yeah.

John: Yeah.

Sharlene: Is that the -- the question you wanted to ask me?

John: I -- no. No, no. I -- I know you know about the snowflake ball. Everybody knows about it. I -- I mean, who doesn't, right?

Sharlene: Right. So what -- what did you want to ask me?

John: Well, I -- I -- well, I just wanted to know if maybe you'd be interested in going, with me.

Sharlene: I'd be more than interested. I'd love to go with you.

Sam: Well, I want you to be comfortable. Come on, do you think I want you to be uncomfortable?

Amanda: You're so edgy.

Sam: Well, look, are you comfortable?

Amanda: What am I doing sitting on the floor in the first place?

Sam: Oh -- hey -- ok, turn around this way and close your eyes.

Amanda: Sam --

Sam: Close your eyes. Just close your eyes, ok?

Amanda: What's going on?

Sam: Close your eyes! Close your eyes. Keep them closed before I give you the word.

Amanda: Where are you going?

Sam: Just stay there and keep them closed!

Amanda: Don't you leave me.

Sam: Keep them closed, ok? All right, now, open them.

Amanda: Oh, Sam. Your paintings -- they --

Sam: So what do you think?

[Amanda sighs]

Amanda: I think that I have married a genius.

Sam: Whatever I am, I have you and Alli to thank. I love you.

Amanda: I love you, too.

Sam: So, ha-ha -- tomorrow we find out whether or not I'm a success or a failure.

Amanda: I'm going to tell you right now, you're a success. Alli and I wouldn't have you any other way.

Amanda: You know, this floor is getting more and more comfortable every minute.
