Sam: So, what do you think?

Amanda: Not enough.

Sam: Not enough? Boy, you're in the partying mood.

Amanda: Sam, there's nothing still left in the bathroom, is there?

Sam: Amanda, this place is so clean, no one is going to recognize it.

Amanda: My mother wouldn't say anything, but she'll look. I know she will.

Sam: Amanda, look, if we clean this place any more, they could do surgery in here, ok?

Amanda: It's so quiet here without Alli.

Sam: I know. It's a better idea having her at Mrs. Martin's all night long.

Amanda: Oh, I know. I know. This place is going to be a madhouse.

Sam: Mm-hmm. All right, here, how's this?

Amanda: Why are you wearing that stupid hat?

Sam: I hate hats. I--

Amanda: I hate them, too.

[Sam growls playfully]

Amanda: What's this?

Sam: Oh, just a list of New Yearís resolutions.

Amanda: You are going to be busy.

Sam: You don't understand, this isn't my list.

Amanda: Huh?

Sam: It's yours.

Donna: Oh!

Vicky: Hi!

Donna: Don't you look beautiful. Here, here, here, let me take your coat.

Vicky: Happy New Year. Happy New Year.

Michael: Let me take your coat.

Jamie: Thank you very much.

Vicky: Mother, you look gorgeous.

Donna: Oh, well, you don't think it's too dressy?

Vicky: What?

Jamie: How can you be too dressy on New Yearís Eve?

Michael: I've been telling her that for 30 minutes.

Donna: Oh, well, anyway, Bridget will be over here soon and we'll be going over to the McKinnonís. I just didn't want to feel overdressed, you know.

Vicky: Please, I'm sure they've seen a nice dress before.

Michael: You hear that? Huh, huh? Would you like something to drink?

Vicky: Love a ginger ale.

Michael: Really? Jamie?

Jamie: Sounds good to me. I'll help you carry.

Michael: Ok, sure you wouldn't want something stronger?

Jamie: No, no, no, we're driving up to see the house.

Donna: You look so pretty.

Vicky: Thank you.

Donna: What did he just say?

Vicky: Oh, we're going down to the new house tonight.

Donna: You're kidding. On New Yearís Eve?

Vicky: Well, it's the first time he's had more than an hour off, so I decided to, you know, take him up on the offer.

Donna: Right, right. I remember how he reacted when you gave him the key.

Vicky: Yeah, yeah, right. You told me so.

Donna: Oh, honey, I don't want to be the one to say that. At least he's considering it now, hmm?

Vicky: Yeah, that's for sure. For a while I thought he was going to dump me, the baby, the house altogether.

Donna: What? Victoria--

Vicky: Relax. I'm just kidding.

Donna: Honey, you have to be careful. I mean, it's taken Jamie a long time to finally do the right thing by you.

Vicky: Mother--

Donna: No. No, honey, you have to be very, very careful.

Matt: I'm going to go get my jacket, then we'll leave.

Josie: Ok. Mama, you look--you look great.

Sharlene: You think so?

Josie: Yeah. John's going to flip. You look even prettier than the night of the snowflake ball.

Sharlene: Oh, well, we'll see. What?

Josie: Oh, that's such a pretty pendant.

Sharlene: Thank you.

Josie: You know, I like it better than Rachel Coryís fancy old necklace.

Sharlene: Yeah, me, too.

Josie: Want me to take it with me?

Sharlene: What?

Josie: The necklace. I'll be seeing Mrs. Cory later. I can just take it to her.

Sharlene: Josie, please, just quit harping at me about that necklace.

Marley: Here you go.

Mary: Ok, would you just stop? Would you just please stop and go lie down for a while?

Marley: I'm fine.

Mary: I don't care if you're fine, you're making me nervous. Go lie down before the party.

Marley: Ok, one piece of celery.

Vince: All right, the men are here.

Jake: And we're ready to party.

Mary: Uh-oh.

Vince: Hey, how are you feeling?

Marley: I'm fine. Everybody, Marley is just fine, ok? Now, I'm going to go up and get dressed, and I want you to come get your tie on. Come on.

Jake: You take it easy. Remember, you just got out of the hospital.

Vince: Do you know what I just realized in the car on the way home?

Mary: No, what did you just realize in the car on the way home?

Vince: That I had locked up the old restaurant for the last time this year.

Mary: [Irish accent] Oh, Mr. McKinnon, you are a sentimental fool, you are.

Vince: [Irish accent] You don't know just how sentimental.

[Normal voice] Hey, John. Vince. Everything's set for tonight. Don't mention it. Hey, forget about it. Happy new year.

Mary: [Normal voice] What was that all about?

Vince: Never mind. Hey, wait a minute. Do I get a kiss, or what?

Mary: You expect me to kiss a man who just said "never mind" to me?

Vince: Yeah.

Mary: Well, all right, maybe.

Mary: All right, enough, enough, enough. We have stuff to do. Pilara.

Pilara: Hi.

Mary: Happy New Year.

Pilara: Yeah.

Mary: Vince, would you like to go get ready?

Vince: Are you ok?

Mary: Yeah, I'm fine.

Vince: Happy New Year, Pilara.

Mary: Did you want to talk?

Pilara: No. I mean, I don't know why I came by.

Mary: Well, we're having a party. Would you like to join us?

Pilara: No, I got other plans.

Mary: Oh. Then why are you here?

Pilara: Well, I just wanted to let you know that you don't have to worry about me no more. I'm going to be just fine from now on.

Mary: Oh, I hope that's true. Oh, I really hope that's true.

Vince: Mary! Where are my good shoes?

Mary: Just a minute, sweetie! If you're hungry, help yourself to some food.

Ruben: Pilara.

Pilara: He left them hanging out on the hook.

Ruben: We lucked out. Nobody going to be in there.

Pilara: I know. I was the one who told you that.

Ruben: Better than that. I checked it out. I found out he kicked out all the tenants upstairs so he can renovate it. So ain't nobody going to be around to bother us when we clean out that cash drawer.

Pilara: You know, there might not be any money in there.

Ruben: What are you talking about? There's money there.

Pilara: Ruben, do we have to do this?

Ruben: What's the matter with you?

Pilara: Maybe we could--maybe we could just sell something.

Ruben: What for? I'm telling you, a restaurant's got to keep a lot of money around for when they open up in the morning. All right?

Pilara: All right, all right.

Ruben: Don't worry about it, babe. We're going to get the money.

Pilara: I have to go back inside.

Ruben: All right, all right. Meet me in the alleyway, all right? One hour.

Pilara: Just go, go.

Mary: Why is it that guys never know where anything is in the house?

Pilara: Yeah, guys.

Mary: Why don't you change your mind and stay.

Pilara: I canít.

Mary: What's the matter?

Pilara: You know, I don't get you sometimes. I mean, first you make like I'm this thief, and then it's like, "oh, come to our party, Pilara," you know, "have fun."

Mary: I'm just not going to give up on you.

Pilara: What's that supposed to mean?

Mary: I want to see you make it, and I'm going to do everything I can to help.

Pilara: Like calling me a thief.

Mary: I didn't tell Vince about the candlestick, and I wonít.

Pilara: Yeah, well, you might as well because I didn't do it.

Mary: What I want in return is just for you to take a look at how you live and where you're going. Pilara, you can still have a good life.

Pilara: Yeah. Let's talk about that some other time, ok?

Mary: Yeah. Anytime you say.

Pilara: I got to go meet somebody.

Mary: Who? Ruben?

Pilara: You say his name like he's some kind of bug. He's a good man.

Mary: Pilara, someone who hits you and gets you to steal is not a good man.

Pilara: You don't know the whole story.

Mary: Ok. Ok.

Pilara: You know what your problem is? You got all this home-cooked advice, but it doesn't work when you're out on the street. Happy New Year.

Vince: You ok?

Mary: Yeah, I'll be all right.

Vince: I don't want Pilara to do a job on New Yearís like she did on Christmas.

Mary: She wonít. She wonít. I'm fine.

Vince: I hope so.

[As Humphrey Bogart] You know, you're my date tonight, sweetheart.

[Normal voice] Listen, why don't we call M.J. and Adam--

Mary: Oh, M.J. called us. I'm sorry, I forgot to tell you. About 20 minutes before you got home.

Vince: Oh. Oh, nice. And how is she, hmm?

Mary: Well, Adam had to go to Maine. There's a problem with his family.

Vince: Oh, she's all alone?

Mary: Yeah. And she sounded really lonely and really, really far away. And I tried to cheer her up.

Vince: I'm sure you did.

Mary: Yeah, sure, right. Well, I tried. Boy, at least you got to say that--I'm always in there trying.

Vince: Look, look, it'll be all right. And Pilara's going to be all right.

Mary: I don't know about that.

Vince: She is, and so are you. And who knows--maybe tonight there might be a little surprise, you know what I mean?

Sam: Now, you understand I'm very serious about these.

Amanda: Yeah. And just how many of these things are there?

Sam: Oh, just one more. "Amanda will wake up in the morning. The first thing she will do is give her husband a backrub and etc."

Amanda: What's "etc."?

Sam: My choice.

Amanda: You really went off into a fantasy world when you made these, you know that?

Sam: Yeah, well, I had a good time. Mm-hmm.

Amanda: I'll bet.

Sam: Mm-hmm. So you're going to follow them, right?

Amanda: Absolutely.

Sam: Really?

Amanda: Not.

Sam: Wait a minute. Bring those--that's a lot of work in there. Will you bring it back here?

Amanda: All gone.

Sam: Ok, so, fine, you're not going to do any new year's resolutions this year?

Amanda: Of course I am.

Sam: Well, what?

Amanda: Love my husband, love my daughter, and be happy.

Sam: I can deal with that, yeah.

[Knock on door]

Sam: Oh, here's the door.

Rachel: Happy New Year!

Sam: Happy New Year! Come on in.

Rachel: How are you?

Mac: Happy New Year, Sam.

Sam: Mac, it's good to see you.

Rachel: Darling, I should have brought something for you.

Amanda: Mother, don't be silly. Hi, Daddy.

Mac: Happy new year, sweetheart.

Amanda: Iris, how nice to see you.

Iris: Darling, this is delightful. Why don't you take me on a little tour?

Amanda: All right, over here we have the east wing.

Rachel: Thank you.

Sam: Of course. So, where is Ada? I thought she was coming with you guys.

Mac: Well, she was but--

Rachel: Cafe paradise opens at the beginning of next week.

Sam: That's right, I forgot about that. She's got to be swamped.

Rachel: Happy and swamped.

Mac: She's really excited about managing that restaurant.

Iris: This is absolutely wonderful what you've done with this place. Sam, do you know how lucky you are to have a girl like this?

Sam: Yeah, I think I know how lucky I am.

Rachel: Where's Jamie?

Amanda: Oh, I don't think he's going to be able to make it. He and Vicky are looking at their new house.

Rachel: They bought a house?

Sam: Yeah.

Mac: On New Yearís Eve?

Sam: Well, hey, whatever turns your gears. But Matt and Josie will be here.

Iris: Oh, I was so pleased to be able to meet Josie at the ball. Isn't she the sweetest young girl, Rachel?

Rachel: Yes, she is, Iris.

Sharlene: Josie, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to snap at you.

Josie: It's ok, Mama.

Sharlene: It's just that I think it's important that I return the necklace myself. Rachel loaned it to me.

Josie: Mama, are you sure everything's ok?

Sharlene: Yes.

Josie: You've been acting kind of nervous lately.

Sharlene: Hey, I am fine.

Matt: All righty, I've got my coat. Do you want to go?

Josie: Yeah. Bye, Mama.

Sharlene: Oh, you have a wonderful time. Don't you let anything ruin this evening.

Josie: I wonít. You have fun with John.

Sharlene: I will. Matthew, please, please, be careful on the roads tonight, ok?

Josie: We're not going to drink, Mama.

Sharlene: I know that, but there are other people out there who aren't so smart. So, please, Matthew, be careful.

Matt: We will, we will. Bye-bye.

Sharlene: Bye.

Josie: Hi.

John: Hi, Josie.

Matt: Hi, John.

John: Matt.

Josie: You look great.

John: Well, so do you.

Matt: Oh, thank you.

Josie: Happy New Year.

John: Happy new year to you. Have a good time.

Josie: Ok.

Sharlene: What are you looking at?

John: Well, it looks even better on you.

Sharlene: Thank you. I love it.

John: Am I late or something?

Sharlene: No. Why?

John: I don't know. You just seemed a little edgy.

Sharlene: It's--it's just that something's been bothering me, that's all.

John: What?

Sharlene: Look, it's like I told Josie, there is no sense letting anything ruin this evening.

John: What is it?

Sharlene: It's nothing, really. It's not important.

John: Ok.

Sharlene: I just want to enjoy myself with you. Shall we?

John: We shall.

Vicky: All right. This has got to stop. I want to go up and see Mikey.

Michael: Oh, great. I wanted to check and see if his light's on. Come on, I'll walk you.

Vicky: I'm so glad I'm here tonight. This is great.

Michael: So am I. And you look so happy.

Vicky: I am.

Michael: I'm glad.

Vicky: You know, Dad, I just wanted to tell you that this past year I've needed you a lot. Well, you've always been there, always. Thanks.

Michael: Well, I love you, too. Now, come right this way.

Vicky: Thank you.

Michael: Indeed.

Donna: Jamie, can I get you something else to drink?

Jamie: No, I'm fine, thank you.

Donna: Oh, all right. You know, we're really lucky with the weather right now. Usually the roads are so icy.

Jamie: Donna.

Donna: Hmm?

Jamie: When I walked in earlier, I heard you talking to Vicky.

Donna: Oh.

Jamie: Yeah, and, Donna, I really didn't like what I heard.

Donna: Oh. Well, what did I say this time?

Jamie: I'm going to be very blunt here. I don't want us to be enemies.

Donna: Enemies? Jamie, I don't want that, either.

Jamie: But I won't put up with anybody trying to run my life, Donna. I've heard all about how you used to treat Jake.

Donna: Oh, well, now, Jake is--

Jamie: Donna, I just won't put up with it, ok?

Donna: Jamie, my only concern is Victoria. I just want her to be happy.

Jamie: So do I. So please don't interfere. Because if you do, well, you'll be sorry, very sorry. Please, I really hope you understand that.

Michael: Ok, slow, slow, slow.

Vicky: You should have seen Mikey. He has little mittens on his hands--

Michael: I don't know where he found them, but he looks so cute.

Jamie: Vicky, listen, I think it's time for us to go.

Vicky: Oh, wait; let's see how many--90 minutes to midnight.

Donna: Wait. Wait just a minute. You cannot leave this house without making a toast to the New Year.

Michael: Glasses, everybody.

Vicky: Are you going to do the speech and do the motherly thing like cry--

Donna: Would you stop making fun of your mother?

Michael: Get your glass.

Donna: Yes, get your glass. All right, now, here it is. To great health and happiness--

Michael: Happiness.

Donna: And to getting started on the right foot.

Michael: The right foot.

Vicky: The right foot.

Michael: Happy New Year!

Vicky: Happy New Year. Happy New Year. Happy New Year, baby.

Marley: Yoo-hoo.

Jake: Whoa.

Marley: You like?

Jake: I like, I like.

Marley: Better than a hospital gown, hmm?

Jake: Yeah. Let's hope that you never have to wear one of those again.

Marley: Unless, of course, I'm in the maternity unit.

Jake: Well, in that case, let's hope that you have to wear 5 or 6 of them.

Marley: I'm sorry.

Jake: What's wrong?

Marley: Nothing. Nothing.

Jake: Come on.

Marley: It's just that Dr. Jensen said maybe the endometriosis wouldn't be all cleared up.

Jake: He said there's a good chance that it was.

Marley: And then what about the other problems he was talking about?

Jake: Honey... this is not the time to worry about that, you think?

Marley: I think I'm always going to worry about this.

Jake: Look at me. We are going to have a great big family.

Marley: We are?

Jake: Yes, we are.

Marley: But we can't even make love.

Jake: It's just a couple days.

Marley: And what about the surgery--I can't say it.

Jake: Honey, we will still find a way.

Marley: What way?

Jake: Look at Mikey. I mean, that wouldn't be so bad, would it?

Marley: No. No, it's just--

Jake: What?

Marley: It's kind of a longing, Jake. It's a longing deep, deep inside me to have something growing, something of yours inside me growing. I want to know the life, the child that you and I would create.

Jake: I love you, Marley. I love you so much.

Matt: Thank you. Thank you, sir. Oh, Mom, Dad. You guys look great.

Rachel: So do you.

Matt: Happy New Year.

Amanda: Hi.

Matt: Hi. My big sister, the perfect hostess.

Amanda: You always say that when I have food.

Matt: Food?

Josie: He eats all the time.

Rachel: I know, he's always been like that. Don't you look darling.

Josie: Thank you.

Rachel: Josie, I was wondering--

Iris: Josie, how wonderful to see you.

Josie: Mrs. Wheeler, so nice to see you. How are you?

Iris: Oh, you just look perfect in that dress.

Josie: Well, it's not as nice as my dress was for the snowflake ball.

Iris: It was you that made that dress beautiful.

Sam: I think you need to brush up on your skating. Ahem.

Matt: I didn't expect to see you guys there.

Amanda: No, it was kind of a surprise to us, too.

Sam: Uh-huh.

Matt: What?

Sam: Oh, we saw your first fall. You must have seen stars.

Matt: Mac, are you going to let these guys pick on me like this?

Mac: I want you to learn to fight your own battles.

Amanda: Hey, what's it like being on Christmas vacation?

Matt: Great. It would be a lot nicer, though, if I didn't have to make up an incomplete.

Sam: In what?

Matt: English lit. I still have a paper to turn in.

Rachel: Matt.

Mac: When is it due?

Matt: First day of classes back.

Amanda: What a drag.

Matt: It's not that bad. Lisa's going to help me. She has to study for a paralegal exam, so we're going to meet at the library and help each other out.

Josie: I'm going to be going to the university this semester, too.

Mac: Oh, great.

Iris: That's super. I think all bright girls should go to college.

Amanda: Have you been to the campus yet?

Josie: Oh, sure. I've met a lot of people there. It's a great place.

Amanda: Yeah, I think so, too.

Josie: I've even made a few friends. It's really nice there.

[Vince whistles]

Mary: Oh, good. Would you take that and put it--what is that?

Vince: What does it look like?

Mary: My suitcase with a bow on it.

Vince: Think of it as a late Christmas present.

Mary: How much champagne have you had?

Vince: Listen, I booked you on an 11:30 flight to Minneapolis.

Mary: What?

Vince: I just called M.J. She's going to drive--

Mary: Wait, wait, wait, wait. What are you talking about?

Vince: I just told you. You're going to Minneapolis to see M.J. She's going to meet you at the airport.

Mary: I can't go to Minneapolis.

Vince: Sure, you can.

Mary: This is crazy.

Vince: No, but we can't stand here jabbering because you're going to miss your flight.

Mary: I cannot just go to Minneapolis now.

Vince: Why not?

Mary: Because we're in the middle of giving a party and I have appointments on Monday.

Vince: Hey, they got telephones in Minneapolis. You can call, you can reschedule.

Mary: I have things. I have responsibilities.

Vince: Look, just forget about Pilara just for a couple of days. I'll be nice. Why don't you get your coat?

Mary: Did you just do all this now?

Vince: Yeah. I packed what I thought you'd need here, and we'll stop on the way to the airport at the machine and get some money from the wall. And let's see. What's the matter?

Mary: You are the sweetest man I have ever known in my whole life.

Vince: That's true. Hey, listen, you get the light one, I'll get the heavy coat.

Mary: Hold it a second.

Vince: Don't hurt yourself. I packed all your shoes. Go ahead, pick it up.

Mary: Fine, I can do this. I can handle this. I can do it. You bum.

Vince: I'll get the car, you get that.

Mary: I'll do this. I can do it.

Vince: Right over this way, please, ma'am.

Ruben: Looking good.

Pilara: Shut the door.

Pilara: I'm scared.

Ruben: Chill out. Hold up, hold up.

Pilara: What?

Ruben: Check this out.

Pilara: Wow. That's nice.

Ruben: Yeah, yeah, it's nice, but who's it for?

Pilara: I wish it was for us.

Ruben: Someday, babe, just not right now, ok? Check out the cash drawer, all right? I'll keep an eye out. Go on.

Ruben: How much?

Ruben: What's the matter with you? How much is in there? If there ain't nothing in there, look underneath the counter, all right, and see if there's a bag or something. What's the matter with you?

Pilara: We canít.

Ruben: What are you talking about?

Pilara: We just can't do it, Ruben.

Ruben: What's the matter?

Pilara: Mrs. McKinnon, you know, she's been really, really good to me.

Ruben: We need the money, Pilara.

Pilara: You know, even the candlestick--she didn't report it. And I know she knows that I took it.

Ruben: Oh, come on.

Pilara: She still didn't report it.

Ruben: They have insurance. It ain't no big deal.

Pilara: No, Ruben. It's still stealing.

Ruben: I don't believe you. Excuse me, aren't you the one who got the keys? Didn't you meet me in here? And now you're telling me, "Ruben, I can't, it's wrong," huh?

Pilara: It is wrong. There's just got to be some other way.

Ruben: Yeah, ok. Right. We ain't got no money. What you going to do, huh? Huh? Nothing. Just sit back in that room and do nothing?

Ruben: Don't do that. Why are you crying, Pilara?

Pilara: Mrs. McKinnon, she's been really--you know, she cares about me. Tonight she said, you know, "I'm not going to give up on you."

Ruben: I swear to you, she's never even going to know that we was in here, ok?

Pilara: I don't want to do this to her family.

Ruben: Ok. Ok. All right. You don't want to do this, then we won't do it, ok?

Pilara: I just can't do it, you know?

Ruben: Yeah, I know.

[Footsteps]

Ruben: What's that? Get down, get down.

Sharlene: See, it's all dark inside.

John: I know.

Sharlene: Come on, let's go someplace else.

John: No, no, no. This is our place. I made a very special reservation, trust me.

Singer: One more time saying goodbye to love

Mac: Here you are, dear.

Iris: Oh, thank you, Daddy.

Mac: My pleasure. Any resolutions for the year?

Iris: Resolutions?

Mac: Don't tell me you haven't made any, Iris.

Iris: No, I'm afraid not.

Mac: Well, you should. New Yearís Eve is the time to make great plans for the next year, you know.

Iris: Oh, I already know what I want.

Mac: Oh?

Rachel: Darling, come look at these darling pictures that Sam took of the baby.

Sam: Only 1,002 of them.

Mac: Excuse me, I'll be right back.

Iris: I know what I want-- Michael.

Sharlene: What in the world?

John: Told you, I made a very special reservation.

Sharlene: Look at this table.

John: Dinner for two.

Ne this is...

[Laughs] I don't believe this.

John: It's New Yearís Eve.

Sharlene: You went to all this trouble, I--

John: No. No trouble, not really. Just dinner. Just us.

Pilara: They're going to be here for hours.

John: I wanted us to have a very special celebration, without all of the crowds.

Sharlene: So what if somebody sees us? What if somebody wants to come in?

John: No, nobody's going to come in. There's a "closed" sign on the door. We are closed.

Sharlene: Mm.

John: Mm-hmm.

[Sharlene laughs]

Sharlene: This is amazing! I don't believe you did this.

John: All I had to do was just go to Vince. I went to him, I asked him, and he said, "Sure, we're going to be closed anyway, so you can have the restaurant. No problem. Why not?"

Sharlene: You and me, candlelight, dinner for two.

John: And music. Yes. What would you like to hear?

Ruben: Damn.

Pilara: What's the matter? What are we going to do?

Ruben: I don't know.

Pilara: We can't stay here all night.

Ruben: We might have to.

Pilara: They're going to hear us.

Ruben: Be quiet. If they catch us, it's over.

Iris: Did video match set you up with a date?

Amanda: No, no, that's all done individually. They just give you the phone number.

Iris: But it's all very confidential?

Amanda: Mm-hmm. You know, my date said something very curious. I think I may have found something.

Iris: Then you'll have to see him again.

Amanda: I don't know if that's possible.

Iris: Why not?

Amanda: Well, for our date, we went skating, and Sam showed up.

Iris: Oh no, really?

Amanda: Things got a little sticky there for a while.

Iris: I can imagine. Was he very angry?

Amanda: Well, he knew about the project. I just had to have a few things squared away with him. It's no big problem.

Iris: Sam knew about the project?

Amanda: Of course he did. I couldn't very well go on my secret dates without letting my husband know, now, could I?

Iris: No, of course not. I'd hate anything to come between you two.

Amanda: Oh, no. In fact, if anything, it just made us closer. Excuse me, I'm going to get some more drinks.

Iris: How nice.

Josie: Matthew.

Matt: No, I mean she is terrific.

Sam: Matthew, I think you're embarrassing the young lady.

Matt: All I'm saying is that Josie can do anything she puts her mind to.

Mac: I'm sure she can.

Josie: Well, I don't know what to say.

Sam: Don't say anything, just do good in school, ok?

Josie: I will.

Matt: Hey, where's that cleaning mechanism that you-- Sam: Ah, yes, my famous electric eraser.

Mac: I've got to see that.

Sam: It's the biggest rip-off since I bought that electric shoeshine machine.

Matt: Why is he such a sucker for gadgets?

Rachel: Josie?

Josie: Yes?

Rachel: I had no idea you were going to enroll in the university next semester.

Josie: Oh, yeah, well, it's not final yet.

Rachel: What courses are you interested in?

Josie: I'm not sure yet. I mean, they make you take all kinds of requirements first.

Rachel: Matthew got you interested or your friends?

Josie: Well, I just think that I should get an education, you know?

Rachel: Well, you're right about that. But you mentioned friends. Did Matthew introduce you to them?

Josie: Well, we have some guys staying at the farm, students.

Rachel: Living at the house?

Josie: Yeah, boarders.

Rachel: Oh, I didn't realize that. So, you must have gotten to know them pretty well.

Josie: Well, sure, yeah. I also met some people at the student union.

Rachel: Oh, I see. So you go to parties there.

Josie: Excuse me?

Rachel: Well, there are parties at the student union, aren't there?

Josie: Well--Mrs. Cory, is something the matter?

Matt: Josie, come on, you got to see this thing, it's insane.

Josie: Excuse me.

Matt: Sam, show this thing to her.

Mac: Everything all right, sweetheart?

Rachel: I hope so.

[Laughter]

Matt: So it's just like...

Sam: You're a sick kid.

Vicky: See, and then we can build a den out of that other bedroom.

Jamie: Yes, you could.

Vicky: Oh, don't you just love these windows?

Jamie: You said you could see nothing but trees from the back, right?

Vicky: You can't, and there's plenty of room to build a pool back there. And did you see the kitchen, all those built-in things in it? Isn't it fantastic?

Jamie: Yeah, it's very nice.

Vicky: You don't like it.

Jamie: I didn't say that.

Vicky: You're still mad at me because I bought it without asking.

Jamie: You told me about the house, but you left out one little detail.

Vicky: I did?

Jamie: Location.

Vicky: Oh. Jamie, I know it's across the street from the house that you and Lisa were going to buy.

Jamie: Did you think I wouldn't notice that?

Vicky: No, I wanted you to.

Jamie: Then why did you buy this house? Why this house, Vicky?

Vicky: Because I'm not second-best.

Jamie: Say what?

Vicky: You remember last New Yearís I spent with you and Lisa? She fell asleep on the couch, so you and I brought the New Year in together. You remember that?

Jamie: I remember that, yes.

Vicky: We had a good time.

Jamie: Yes, we did.

Vicky: As good as you would have had with Lisa.

Jamie: Vicky, I don't think you should be comparing yourself like this.

Vicky: I'm not, but you will.

Jamie: Vicky, I don't--

Vicky: Would you just hear me out on this, all right?

Jamie: All right.

Vicky: I wanted you to compare. I wanted you to look at the neighborhood, the house, the good times and the bad times. Because I want you to realize that any life you could have with me would be better than any life you would have with Lisa. I mean it, Jamie. This is important to me.

Jamie: I can see that.

Vicky: I want you to know that you're not giving up anything by marrying me. Do you understand?

Jamie: I understand.

Vicky: And if you want to walk out of here and say no deal, then go ahead.

Michael: What are you doing?

Marley: Stop.

Michael: Why? It's almost New Yearís, right?

Donna: They are worse than little boys. They can't even wait till after midnight.

Jake: Couple minutes to go. What's the big deal?

Marley: You two are impossible men. Impossible.

Michael: Impossible men? I'll tell you what--let's get the champagne, all right?

Marley: Oh, boy, oh, boy.

Donna: So, is everything all set?

Marley: Well, I think so. I wonder if Vince is going to get home on time.

Donna: Actually, sweetheart, I was wondering how you were.

Marley: What?

Donna: Well, I'm just concerned about you, you know, you seem so quiet most of the time.

Marley: Oh, I'm fine. I'm fine.

Donna: I just wish there was something I could do.

Marley: You know what?

Donna: Hmm?

Marley: You just being on our side has helped a lot.

Donna: Good. Well, I want you to know that you can call me about anything any time, all right?

Marley: Ok, I will.

Donna: Oh, look. Oh, my goodness. Hi. Happy New Year.

Vince: Did I? Oh, yeah, I did. Just in the nick of time.

Donna: Yes, yes.

Michael: Happy New Year.

Vince: Hey, hello, everybody. Hey, hey.

Donna: We've only got a few minutes.

Marley: So, did Mary get off on time?

Vince: Oh, yeah. Weather's clear as a bell. She'll be in Minneapolis in no time at all.

Michael: That's terrific.

Donna: Oh, yes, it is, isn't it? She gets to spend New Yearís Eve with her daughter, and that is a wonderful feeling.

Vince: Yeah, this has been a good year for all of us.

Jake: It sure has.

Vince: We're all together. That's what's important, right--together and happy?

Michael: Together and happy.

Vince: Hey, everybody get glasses, huh?

Marley: Oh, none of that.

Donna: All right, all right, glasses, glasses. I'll get one for you, Vince.

Michael: Got a glass? What are you doing? This is the ceremony.

[Cheering]

[All talking at once]

Donna: Hurry. It's almost time. This is yours.

Michael: You're doing very well so far.

Singer: Here we are on the edge of never letting go

Pilara: Can you get it?

Ruben: It's jammed in there too tight. It's a good thing they're playing that music so now at least they can't hear us. Give me that.

Pilara: Here. Look, maybe there's a hammer or something.

Ruben: What I need is a crowbar.

Singer: Always thought I could always thought I would

John: Almost midnight.

Sharlene: Almost.

Pilara: There's grease all over here.

Ruben: If I could just get it rocking, then maybe what's jammed in there might fall out or something.

Pilara: You got to keep it quiet.

Ruben: I know. Yeah, I know.

Ruben: Come on. Come on, let's go. Come on. Hurry up.

Singer: Have made the love tonight that makes one out of two like all true believers do

Singer: There you are

Vicky: Well, it's not champagne or anything or my best crystal, but it's still bubbles.

Jamie: You stashed all this stuff just in case, huh?

Vicky: All this stuff. I've got a bag of potato chips and some soda.

Jamie: Plus the logs and the matches and the blanket.

Vicky: Yeah. I wanted us to have a chance to celebrate.

Jamie: I'm glad we do.

Vicky: Me, too. Thanks for understanding.

Jamie: It really is a great house. I'm glad you bought it.

Vicky: Good.

Jamie: Totally impulsive, as usual.

Vicky: Well, I've spent my whole year hoping and taking chances. Why should tonight be any different?

Jamie: Happy New Year.

Vicky: No, no, time for the countdown.

Jamie: Wait, wait. How many seconds do we have left?

Vicky: Here we go. 10, 9--

All: 8, 7, 6--

All: 5, 4, 3--

Vicky and Jamie: Happy New Year!

All: Happy New Year!

Michael: Happy New Year!

Donna: Happy New Year!

John: Happy New Year, Sharlene.
