[Phone rings]

[Ring]

Sam: So, what, you knocking off early?

Amanda: Yeah. I know, it's the first time, right?

Sam: I'm looking forward to tonight.

Amanda: Excuse me?

Sam: I'm looking forward to the opening of the Cafe Paradise.

Amanda: What's the doctor's number? Are you all right?

Sam: I'm fine.

Amanda: You just said that you were looking forward to going to a publicity event.

Sam: Well, yeah. Dewalt's going to be there.

Amanda: The sculptor that you're so crazy about?

Sam: Yeah. As a matter of fact, Caroline’s going to introduce me to him. Hapburg, too.

Amanda: Hapburg. Wait. Who's he?

Sam: Hapburg is the watercolorist I'm mad about. Look, I've been wanting to meet these guys for years.

Amanda: And Caroline’s going to introduce you?

Sam: Yeah, can you believe it? I'm finally going to talk to these people.

Amanda: As an equal?

Sam: I wouldn't go that far.

Amanda: I would.

Sam: Do you understand about tonight?

Amanda: I'm trying to.

Sam: Look, I'm sorry. I don't want to leave you at home, but Caroline is --

Amanda: Is Caroline.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: Look, it's all right. Actually, tonight will probably work out great for both of us.

Sam: You're a heck of a woman. You know that?

Amanda: Mm-hmm. Sam?

Sam: Hmm?

Amanda: I have to make a phone call.

Sam: Well, if you're trying to get a hold of Vicky, she's not here, she's gone.

Amanda: No, I'm not calling Vicky.

Sam: Whoa, whoa, whoa -- who?

Amanda: I'm calling my date for tonight.

Lisa: Well, it's part of my new year's resolution.

Felicia: Yeah, a dating service. Here, help me with this, will you?

Lisa: Felicia --

Felicia: What?

Lisa: I'm a single woman. It's about time I enjoyed it.

Felicia: All right, I guess.

Lisa: And besides, just because Jamie left me doesn't mean my life is over.

Felicia: But a computer dating service?

Lisa: It's not computers. It's video. It's a lot more personal than it sounds.

Felicia: Sounds pretty creepy to me, sort of like these pants. I think I wore them with a tree. Yow. Ok.

Lisa: It's just a way to meet people.

Felicia: Honey, the way you meet people is to just go out and meet people.

Lisa: Felicia, you know I'm not the singles bar type. And I hate it when people try to fix you up on dates, you know? They get all hopeful --

Felicia: Well, they want a report.

Lisa: Yeah. It's awkward.

Felicia: Well, especially if it doesn't go very well, I suppose it is awkward. Do you want this? No.

Lisa: No.

Felicia: Of course you don’t.

Lisa: Well, I can't just sit in my apartment and hope Mr. Right will figure out I'm in there and knock on the door. I've got to take some action.

Felicia: All right, you're right.

Lisa: Besides, video match is efficient.

Felicia: Hmm, I guess.

Lisa: And it's very contemporary.

Felicia: Ok.

Lisa: And you can meet men at a safe distance.

Felicia: Listen, who screens these guys anyway?

Lisa: The woman. She's very reliable.

Felicia: You're sure about that?

Lisa: Yeah.

Felicia: No, I mean, have you checked her references?

Lisa: Felicia, why would I do that?

Felicia: Think about this just a little. I mean, this computer dating business could be dangerous.

Nicole: If Rick doesn't get here soon, I'm going to have to go to the cafe without you.

Cass: Why? I'm sure Stefan wouldn't mind waiting.

[French accent] Everything mademoiselle Nicole does is absolutely perfect,

N’est-ce pas?

Nicole: Well, it's true, isn't it?

Cass: [Normal voice] Ee, it's already gone to your head, and I'm the one who has to live with you after he's been telling you how wonderful you are all the time. Or maybe I'm not.

Nicole: Hey, I'm not leaving for a week, and it's only for a few days.

Cass: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Nicole: And anyway, I don't want to go.

Cass: Then stay. Who needs winter in Paris anyway?

Nicole: Not me. The last thing I want to do is be away from you again.

Cass: I hear a "but" coming on.

Nicole: Success dresses. They are doing so well. I really do have to go.

Cass: I understand. Really. In fact, I won't even use these on you, I promise -- unless, of course, you insist.

Nicole: You have a very sick mind. Do you know that?

Cass: Thank you very much. It takes one to know one.

Rick: Hi, Cass.

Cass: Hey, Rick.

Rick: Hi, Nicole.

Nicole: Hi.

Rick: Sorry, but I got held up. It's a cop joke. Never mind.

Nicole: I really should get going.

Cass: Love you.

Nicole: I'll let you two talk. I'll see you there later.

Cass: Ok.

Nicole: Bye.

Cass: Bye.

Rick: So what can I do for you, counselor?

Cass: Well, you can let my client see his wife for a few minutes.

Rick: Who's your client?

Cass: Bingham.

Rick: Well, you can tell Mr. Bingham that he can see his wife on visiting days.

Cass: Come on, now. Look, he wants to see her tonight. He says he's lonely.

Rick: Well, he should have thought of that before he started kiting checks.

Cass: Rick --

Rick: Which wife is it?

Cass: His current one -- number five, ok?

Rick: Uh-huh. I was just wondering.

Cass: Hey, the guy is in for bad checks, not bad marriages. Can't you do something?

Rick: I don't think so.

Cass: Haven't you ever really needed to see somebody really badly? Ever?

Rick: Yeah, as a matter of fact I have.

Cass: Well, then, it's ok? I'll tell you what I'll do. Why don't I escort Mrs. Bingham down to the holding cell for you?

Rick: Yeah, yeah, ok, great.

Cass: Thanks, Rick. You're a prince. Hi, Julie Ann.

Julie Ann: I'm not sure why I came down here.

Rick: I'm glad you did. I think we need to talk.

Pilara: I'm real scared now, Ruben.

Ruben: Chill out, babe.

Pilara: Mary's place -- they think the fire was done on purpose.

Ruben: Yeah, but we know better than that, right?

Pilara: Who's going to believe that? I mean, if they find out we were there --

Ruben: They ain't going to find out nothing unless we do something stupid.

Pilara: Maybe we should split. Let's just go somewhere.

Ruben: Like where, huh?

Pilara: I don't know. It's just this waiting and sitting around is getting to me.

Ruben: Ok. All right. Maybe you're right. Maybe we should just tell them what we know.

Pilara: You're changing your mind?

Ruben: I mean, we tell them the truth, right? We're clean. Maybe just the whole thing will blow over.

[Knock on door]

Woman: Police department. Open up.

Sam: Hold it, Brenda Starr. What about our little agreement that if you were going to do any more research for video match I was going to be there, hmm?

Amanda: You will be.

Sam: Amanda, I'm going to be at the opening tonight.

Amanda: So will I.

Sam: Oh, you're not. No.

Amanda: Come on, it's the perfect opportunity. I can get my scoop and you can be in the same room at the same time without even arousing any suspicion.

Sam: I don't want you arousing anything.

Amanda: Tim is a very nice guy.

Sam: Oh, Tim again?

Amanda: Sam, come on. The last time I got this close to getting a really good story on video match. Tim was just about to tell me about a special level that they have, where if you pay more money you get better --

Sam: Better what?

Amanda: I don't know. That's where we got interrupted.

Sam: So that's where I hit him, huh?

Amanda: Yes. So it may take a little convincing for me to get him to go out with me again. I'm calling him now.

Sam: What -- fine, fine. Call him. I'm going to shave, ok?

[Phone rings]

Man: Hello?

Amanda: Hello. Tim?

Man: Yes.

Amanda: Hi. Do you know who this is?

Tim: Amanda?

Amanda: Uh-huh.

Tim: How did you get my number?

Amanda: Well, Auntie Rose gave it to me. I hope you're still not mad about what happened when we went skating the other day.

Tim: Well, it was not a great day.

Amanda: Oh, I know. But can I help it if some maniac decides --

Sam: Maniac?

Amanda: To follow me around and pretend that he's my husband?

Tim: Man, he's not really your husband and --

Amanda: Oh, no, really. Do you think I'd marry a lunatic like that?

Tim: Well, the guy must be certifiable.

Amanda: Oh, he's completely off his rocker.

Sam: Ooh --

Amanda: But, look, I hope you won't hold that against me. I'd really like to see you again.

Tim: Oh, I don't know.

Amanda: Oh, but I thought someone as sensitive as you would be more understanding.

Tim: Sensitive?

Amanda: Well, yeah. You were so great when I hurt my ankle.

Tim: Oh, how is your ankle?

Amanda: Much better. It must have been the way you rubbed it.

Sam: Oh, please!

Amanda: Look, I was kind of hoping that maybe you would give me a second chance. There's an opening of a new restaurant tonight. It's called the Cafe Paradise. And I was wondering if you could meet me there. It's in Caroline Stafford’s gallery.

Tim: You really want to see me again?

Amanda: Yes, I really do.

Tim: Cafe Paradise. What time?

Amanda: How about in an hour?

Tim: I'll be there.

Amanda: Great. I can't wait. Bye. I did it!

Sam: Swell.

Amanda: Now, what do I wear?

Sam: Something extremely ugly.

[Knock on door]

Amanda: I'll get that. Caroline.

Caroline: Where's my star? You're not ready yet? Darling, you missed a spot.

Lisa: There's nothing dangerous about it.

Felicia: You're sure about that?

Lisa: Felicia, video dating services are springing up all over the country, because it works.

Felicia: Oh, Lisa --

Lisa: You look at tapes of people before you meet them, and you screen them yourself.

Felicia: Well, it's certainly not the same as talking to somebody.

Lisa: I met Russ there, and he was nice.

Felicia: Russ. Oh -- Russ, the one you brought to the snowflake ball?

Lisa: Yeah. He was a regular guy. He works at "Brava," for heaven's sakes.

Felicia: Yeah, they should all be like that.

Lisa: They're all like me -- career-oriented people who don't have time to socialize.

Felicia: Honey, now, look, you know lots of eligible -- what about that guy -- that guy you know in the detective's office? What's his name?

Lisa: Rick?

Felicia: Rick, right.

Lisa: Rick -- he's going out with Julie Ann.

Felicia: Oh. Right. I forgot that. All right, what about that --

Lisa: Felicia, please. I have not met anyone I'm interested in, you know? Video match seems like the sanest alternative.

Felicia: Well, it just seems a little clinical for my tastes.

Lisa: It's better than the waiting game.

Felicia: Yeah, I wonder about that.

Lisa: Don't we wish love could be like it is in your novels?

Felicia: It can be. It happened to me.

Lisa: Well, it didn't happen to me. My prince charming ran off into the sunset with another woman. So I have to find another prince.

Felicia: Oh, Lisa. Honey, what?

Lisa: Look at the time. I have to go to work.

Felicia: No, no, don't you do -- Lisa --

Lisa: Listen, I want this one. Save it for me.

Felicia: Lisa.

Lisa: Don't worry. Ok?

Felicia: I always worry.

Rick: Look, I still want to see you.

Julie Ann: Are you sure?

Rick: Yes. Look, I know I acted like a jerk at your parents' house, and I'm sorry, and then afterwards at the ball, and I'm really sorry about that. I don't know what came over me.

Julie Ann: If you could just talk about it, Rick.

Rick: But it's a new situation for me. I said all the wrong things, and then I didn't know how to get out of it.

Julie Ann: It's new for both of us.

Rick: Look, you're not going to give up on me, are you?

Julie Ann: I don't know.

Pilara: Yeah.

Courtney: You have the right to remain silent. Have a seat.

Pilara: What?

Courtney: If you choose to give up that right, anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law. You do have a right to the presence of an attorney at any and all questionings.

Pilara: Why are you doing this?

Courtney: If you desire but cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you free of charge. Do you understand the rights as I've explained them to you?

Pilara: I understand.

Courtney: Do you need something?

Cass: Actually, I need Rick’s signature on this.

Rick: Yeah, look, Julie Ann, can we talk again, please?

Julie Ann: Yeah.

Rick: Ok, Cass, let me see this. Give me a minute, though. I need to ask you a few questions.

Pilara: Yeah, well, so do I. Like why did you bring me in here? I didn't do nothing.

Rick: Yeah, well, Vince McKinnon doesn't think so.

Pilara: Yeah?

Rick: Yeah, he thinks you took his keys -- you know, the keys to Mary’s place. He thinks you did this on the night the fire destroyed his restaurant.

Pilara: Well, he's wrong. I had nothing to do with that.

Rick: Yeah, well, that is not the way it looks. I mean, you were staying with Vince and Mary. You had access to the keys. You knew their place would be closed.

Pilara: Wait a minute.

Rick: You knew there'd be cash in the register.

Pilara: Look, you got it all figured out, but you're wrong.

Rick: Why don't you set me straight?

Cass: She doesn't have to tell you anything, Rick. I haven't heard the young lady waive her rights.

Rick: Would you just butt out of this, Cass, please?

Ruben: No, leave her alone, man!

Pilara: Ruben.

Ruben: No, she didn't have nothing to do with it. I'm the one you want, ok?

Rick: Nothing to do with what?

Ada: Ok, guys, looking good. Now, remember, it's a party. Keep the ashtrays empty and the glasses full. Any questions?

[Crash]

Ada: Oh!

[Chef raves in French]

Ada: What did he say?

Nicole: Ada, he just quit.

Ada: He quit? I got 50 soufflés on order and he quit? The chef quit? With 50 soufflés?

Jason: Now, of course, when you take away this wall, you still maintain two separate work areas, and quite private, but at the same time, it's going to give you more of a feeling of openness.

Felicia: Right, I like that. Are you sure there's enough room?

Jason: Well, you're the boss. If there's something you don't like, you tell me and I make an adjustment.

Felicia: Ok, fine.

Jason: Oh, these book-and-shelf units are modular, so you can move them around.

Felicia: Yes, I do. I like that very much.

Jason: So do I.

Felicia: Well, you know, Mitch really should see all of this.

Jason: Well, please, that's fine. Show them to Mitch. It's ok. Next time.

Felicia: I've really got to phone him right now. Do you mind?

Jason: No, not at all. Sure.

Felicia: Great.

Jason: Ahem.

Felicia: Hi, honey. Yes, hi. No, no, I'm home. Right -- oh, you're kidding. What's happened? Right. No, no, well, I just hope it's not going to be an all-nighter. Right. Yeah, I love you, too. All right. Yeah, see you later. Bye-bye.

Jason: Everything all right?

Felicia: Oh, yes, fine. We were just going to the cafe opening. I promised Ada we'd be there.

Jason: Well, I can take you.

Felicia: You -- you've been invited?

Jason: Frame Construction did all the renovation inside, of course.

Felicia: Oh, right. Yes, I forgot.

Jason: I'm going anyway, right?

Felicia: Well, I wouldn't dream of imposing.

Jason: Felicia, there's no imposition, I assure you.

Felicia: Yeah, I figured that.

Jason: I always felt there was a real hook between us, you know?

Felicia: A hook?

Jason: A connection, a contact.

Felicia: Really?

Jason: Yeah. I like your style very much.

Felicia: You know, Jason, you really shouldn't lay it on quite so thick. If you know anything about my style, you know that I don't mince words.

Jason: Well, then, let's hit the road, Jack.

Felicia: I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be. Excuse me.

Ruben: I mean it, man. She didn't have nothing to do with it, man. She's innocent.

Rick: So you say. Did you talk to this guy?

Courtney: He didn't say much.

Ruben: She didn't have nothing to do with no fire.

Rick: How come you're so sure?

Ruben: Because I was there, ok?

Rick: Look, Cass, let me sign this for you.

Ruben: They're going to let you go, ok, babe?

Pilara: They're going to lock you up?

Ruben: Nah. It was an accident. I'll tell them the truth, ok? I'm really sorry I dragged you into this, ok?

Pilara: I'm going to wait for you.

Ruben: No, that's a bad idea. Look, she can go, right, man? Right?

Rick: I make that decision, all right?

Cass: Are you charging her with something?

Rick: And I decided she can go, but not far.

Pilara: Ruben --

Ruben: Just go, ok? I'll be cool.

Pilara: Ok, if that's what you want.

Ruben: Women. They get so frazzled, you know?

Cass: But you don't?

Ruben: Who, me? Nah.

Cass: I thought so.

Rick: Ok, you have a right to a lawyer. You don't have to answer any questions without one here.

Ruben: Lawyers are for guilty people, and I'm innocent. I'm broke, but I'm innocent.

Courtney: We can get you a court-appointed attorney.

Ruben: Forget that. I can take care of myself, all right?

Rick: Here you go, Cass.

Cass: Thanks, Rick. Thanks, Rick. Listen, my name is Cass Winthrop, I'm a lawyer, and I'll be at this number tonight. It's Cafe Paradise. If you really are innocent and you need some help, you give me a call, ok?

Ruben: I don't need no help from you, man. I'm better off without it.

Cass: But if you did set that fire, I'm going to do everything I can to bust you.

Rick: Ok, your name's Ruben, right?

Ruben: Right.

Rick: Ok, Ruben, what were you doing at Mary’s place?

Jason: I'm glad you could find your invitation. I couldn't find mine.

Felicia: Yeah, gee, that must be it.

Jason: Oh, now that Frame Construction is on the map, I get so many I just can't keep up with them.

Felicia: Jason, you can drop the act. You're in.

Jason: Right.

Caroline: Sam?

Sam: Hmm?

Caroline: Look. The press is over there. We really should move over before it's a mob scene.

Sam: Yeah. Well, I suppose I can get this over with.

Caroline: Darling, would you be a bit more positive? They love you.

Sam: Yeah, for the moment.

Caroline: Well, let's keep it that way. Come on.

Sam: Right.

Tim: Well, I never thought I'd see you again.

Amanda: Yeah. Must be fate.

Tim: Oh, no.

Amanda: What?

Tim: There's that guy again.

Amanda: What guy?

Tim: "What guy"? The guy that claimed to be your husband. He's right over there.

Amanda: Oh, that guy. Well, yeah, I see him now.

Tim: Well, look, I don't want to go another round with him.

Amanda: No, no. Look, don't worry about it. I'm sure he probably thinks that he's married to the blond lady that he's standing next to.

Tim: Boy, the perils of single life, huh?

Amanda: Yeah, really. Thank goodness for video match, right?

Tim: I guess.

Amanda: Have you been with them long?

Tim: A while.

Amanda: And are you satisfied?

Tim: So far so good.

Amanda: You know, the last time we talked you said something about a different level.

Tim: Well, there's sort of an inner circle. It costs more, but supposedly you get your money's worth.

Amanda: That's funny. Auntie Rose never said anything to me about it.

Tim: Well, you're new, right?

Amanda: Right, I just signed up. So what do you mean, you get your money's worth? I mean, do you -- do you get to see more tapes? Is there something besides dating?

Sam: Ahem, ahem.

Tim: Is everything all right?

Amanda: Yeah -- oh, yes, everything's fine, really. Where were we?

Evan: Well, tonight's my lucky night. Good evening. Or should I just say "great evening"?

Woman: Having a good time?

Evan: Oh, most definitely. Bartender, I want you to get me the finest bottle of your champagne, please.

Woman: Wow. You really are in a good mood.

Evan: Well, it's going to get better now that I've met you. My name's Evan.

Woman: I'm Maria.

Evan: Maria.

Maria: You going to tell me what you're so happy about?

Evan: You really want to know?

Maria: Mm-hmm.

Evan: I just made $10 million.

Maria: You're kidding, aren't you?

Evan: No, I am dead serious.

Maria: Well, I have a feeling you're not talking about the lottery.

Evan: No, I'm talking high-stakes lottery, global trading.

Maria: What's that?

Evan: It's a gamble. You see, if you win, you collect. And, baby, I just collected!

Maria: Well, do you do this often?

Evan: Well, not on this scale, but, yes, yes.

Maria: Well, that just sounds fascinating.

Evan: Well, see, if you score --

Maria: Uh-huh.

Evan: It just makes living on the edge worthwhile.

Cass: Sorry I'm late.

Nicole: Oh, hi.

Cass: Hello, Stefan.

Stefan: Monsieur Winthrop.

Nicole: It's ok. It gave us time to catch up.

Cass: Oh, great. Hey, this place is pretty spectacular.

Stefan: Charming, like every place Nicole takes me. Perhaps she brings the ambiance with her.

Cass: Yes. I'm always saying that, too. So, Stef how was your flight?

Stefan: Oh, tedious, especially so when you consider it should not have been necessary in the first place.

Nicole: What does that mean?

Stefan: It would be so simple if you just moved to Paris.

Cass: Maybe for you.

Nicole: Stefan, I've told Christian and I've told you, I'm staying here in Bay City with Cass.

Stefan: And your career?

Nicole: Is my career.

Cass: You tell him, honey.

Stefan: Don't you think you are being selfish? A woman with Nicole’s talent -- her love for you is holding her back.

Nicole: Can it, Stefan.

Sam: It's a little cold in here, isn't it?

Amanda: Please.

Caroline: Hello. I'm Caroline.

Tim: Hi. I'm Tim.

Caroline: Amanda tells me you're very talented.

Tim: Well, I'm really not that good of a skater. Second-string varsity hockey was my high point.

Amanda: Isn't he great? He's so modest and witty.

Sam: Ha-ha-ha.

Amanda: You know, I'd really like to know more about what we were talking about before.

Tim: Oh, wouldn't we be better off discussing that at my place?

Caroline: Sam, Mr. Dewalt's over here. Look, here's your chance to meet him. Come on, let's go. Now a poise pad does...

Ruben: I already told you I was alone outside of Mary’s place.

Courtney: Why?

Ruben: It's a free country. I was just in the neighborhood.

Rick: Doing what?

Ruben: Trying to find a place to sleep, ok? There's a lot of abandoned warehouses around there. Not that that's none of your business.

Courtney: What did you see?

Ruben: Well, for starters, I saw some white couple in there. They were dancing or doing something. Why don't you ask them?

Rick: Because we're asking you.

Ruben: Well, that's all I know, ok?

Courtney: Then how do you know the fire was an accident?

Ruben: Maybe -- maybe we ought to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

Pilara: Oh! Could we?

Ruben: Yeah. What's the name of that shrink's place again, the restaurant?

Pilara: Mary's place.

Ruben: Yeah. Maybe we can go there. Let them show some of their concern, right? Pick up a free meal?

Pilara: No. I mean, they're not open on new years.

Ruben: Oh, yeah?

Pilara: Look, what are you thinking about, Ruben?

Ruben: Maybe I got a way to solve all of our problems.

Ruben: Pilara? You get them?

Pilara: Yeah, I left them hanging out on the hook.

Ruben: Yes! We lucked out, because ain't nobody going to be in there.

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

Ruben: No, no, I've been in there, checked it out. I found out he kicked out all the tenants upstairs so he could renovate, 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? Don't sweat it, all right? There's money there.

Pilara: Oh, Ruben, do we have to do this?

Ruben: What's the matter with you?

Pilara: Well, maybe we could -- maybe we could just sell something.

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

Pilara: All right, all right.

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

Ruben: What's the matter with you, huh? 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 can’t.

Ruben: What are you talking about?

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

Ruben: Did you put the keys back?

Pilara: Yes.

Ruben: We were careful. I mean, we didn't touch nothing but the door.

Pilara: You were smoking.

Ruben: No, I wasn’t.

Pilara: You know you were.

Ruben: Well, so what?

Pilara: Well, maybe you threw down a cigarette or a match.

Ruben: I didn't, all right, pilara?

Pilara: You do it all the time. We set that fire.

Lisa: Here.

Pilara: Thanks. My boyfriend's in there. He's innocent. But they don't believe him. I can tell.

Lisa: Hey, they're not the enemy. They don't want to railroad anybody who's innocent.

Pilara: He didn't do anything wrong.

Lisa: I know it's really hard when you care so much and you feel helpless.

Pilara: He's been in there for hours. Why don't they give him a break?

Lisa: Maybe they're trying to help him.

Pilara: Nobody wants to help us.

Ruben: I'm cooperating, man.

Rick: I don't think so, Ruben. That's why I'm going to hold you overnight. Could you handle this, Courtney, please?

Ruben: Yo, hold up, hold up. Am I being arrested?

Courtney: No, you're being held for questioning. Come on, let's go. Let's go, move.

Ruben: That's what I get for being honest.

Rick: What a night.

Lisa: Chaotic, huh?

Rick: Oh, very. What are you still doing here?

Lisa: Oh, hey, I saw Julie Ann leaving a little while ago.

Rick: Yeah, yeah. I saw her, too.

Lisa: And?

Rick: And --

Lisa: And you're going to be seeing her again?

Rick: You are psychic. Yeah, I think so. You know, I was trying to ignore the differences between us, and I ended up shutting her out in the process.

Lisa: Well, everyone makes mistakes.

Rick: Luckily, I think she can forgive me mine.

Lisa: I think she will, too.

Rick: I tell you, I don't want to lose her, Lisa. I mean, but this black-white thing, I'm so clumsy with it.

Lisa: Well, give yourself a chance, Rick. You'll get comfortable.

Rick: I hope so. You should have seen me when I sat down to dinner with her parents. It hit me. I don't think I ever thought about it before.

Lisa: Well, you're thinking about it now.

Rick: But I don't want to be a hypocrite. I want to handle this thing honestly.

Lisa: Sounds to me like you and Julie Ann need to talk.

Rick: Yeah, but I don't want to pressure her.

Lisa: I don't think you should worry about that right now. Love is worth a fight.

Rick: "Love."

Lisa: It's your move, Rick.

Rick: You think so?

Lisa: You're all done here, right?

Rick: Right.

Rick: Thanks.

Sam: Hello.

Tim: Goodbye.

Sam: Look, I really wanted to apologize for all the trouble that I've caused you two.

Tim: Accepted. Now, are you leaving?

Amanda: Uh -- just ignore him.

Tim: I think I'll ignore this whole thing. This guy is nuts. I hope you report him to the police.

Amanda: No, no, don't go. We haven't finished talking yet.

Tim: Well, I have.

Amanda: You're really going to leave?

Tim: You want to come with me?

Sam: Ugh -- tell you what -- we got an awful lot in common. I mean, you like Amanda. Why don't we have a couple of drinks? We'll talk. It'll be fun.

Tim: Oh, no, you don’t. This thing has gone on long enough. I don't know what kind of crazy game you two playing, but count me out.

Amanda: Ugh.

Sam: Sorry.

Amanda: As a husband, you were great.

Sam: Hmm.

Amanda: As a reporter, you stink.

Sam: Well, so, did you get your story?

Amanda: No. But I think I was right. There is definitely something shady going on here.

Sam: Well, what?

Amanda: Hi.

Sam: What are we talking about?

Felicia: Ahem. Stop that, you. Hi.

Cass: Oh, hi, hi, hi.

Felicia: Hi.

Cass: Hey, you know, now, you two are the cute couple of the evening.

Felicia: Shut up. This is not my idea.

Cass: Listen; do me a favor, would you? Don't say anything about Paris tonight.

Felicia: No, no, of course not. Furthest thing from my mind.

Cass: Thank you.

Felicia: Honey, when you go to Paris, would you go to Mr. Guy's salon and pick up at a hat for me?

Nicole: Sure, I'd be happy to.

Felicia: Oh, great. I will describe it to you. Sorry.

Cass: Uh-huh.

Felicia: Now, it look--

Cass: Must be me. Well, I haven't seen you in a long time.

Jason: I know. It's been great, Cass.

Cass: Well, actually, I've been looking forward to seeing you -- with a check in your hand made out to Vicky Hudson.

Jason: Yeah, well --

Cass: Yeah, she trusted you for reasons I will never understand, and I'd hate to see her lose faith in her fellow man.

Jason: Don't you have anything better to do with your time? I like your lady. That is your lady, although I'm beginning to wonder -- she's getting kind of chummy with Frenchy there.

Cass: Hey, that was wonderfully witty, Jason.

Jason: Thank you.

Cass: I wonder if you'd be as wonderfully witty if you were lying flat on your back with several broken bones.

Woman: Mr. Cass?

Cass: Oui.

Woman: There's a phone call for you.

Cass: Where do I take it?

Woman: Over here.

Cass: Thank you.

Felicia: Oh, that would be nice, wouldn't it? Do you? Oh, I bet you do.

Nicole: That would be very nice.

Felicia: Yes, really?

Stefan: Any time.

Felicia: You know, I haven't seen Ada all night.

Nicole: No, she's been a prisoner in the kitchen.

Felicia: Really?

Nicole: Her chef quit.

Felicia: You're kidding.

Nicole: No, he threw a big fit right as we were coming into the party, and Ada had to cover for him at the last minute.

Felicia: Oh, dear. You know, I'd go in and offer my help, but everybody knows I'm not very domestic in the kitchen.

Evan: Excuse me for a second. Hi, Amanda.

Amanda: Evan, hi.

Evan: I may be out of line here, but can I just give you a word of warning?

Amanda: Sure. What's wrong?

Evan: Well, I'm only going to say this because I care about you.

Amanda: All right.

Evan: Now, listen, I've known Caroline a long time, and she tends to get obsessed with her work.

Amanda: Well, yes, that much I know.

Evan: Well, it's more than that. See, sometimes she tends to get obsessed with her creations.

Amanda: Sam is not one of her creations.

Evan: All right. I'm just saying that maybe you should watch out.

Caroline: Sam, you've surpassed my wildest dreams. You really wowed the big shots.

Sam: Why? I didn't do anything.

Caroline: Exactly. But, you know, I think you're getting better with reporters. I actually saw you smile. I did.

Sam: I don't want to do that, don't want to spoil them too much.

Caroline: Oh, it's a wonderful night.

Sam: Yeah, it wasn't bad.

Caroline: And we make a rather wonderful pair, don't we?

Ruben: Now, you ain't listening to me, man. I don't need no fancy defense. All I want you to do is get me out of here tonight. That's it, that's all.

Cass: It's not that simple, Ruben.

Ruben: Can't you just make bail or something?

Cass: They're holding you for questioning. That means they've got you for 48 hours and there is no bail.

Ruben: I thought you were going to help me out, man. You ain't said one thing I want to hear yet.

Cass: Hey, you want to get through this?

Ruben: That's a dumb question. You know I do.

Cass: Then you better start acting a whole lot smarter than you're acting right now.

Ruben: Well, I'm sorry if you missed your party, man.

Cass: Listen, Ruben, they're talking about charging you with arson, and unless I miss my guess, you've got some priors. You want to know how many years that adds up to?

Ruben: I didn't do nothing.

Cass: Then you better start talking to me right now, because whether you look it or not, I could be the only thing standing between you and the state prison.

Nicole: So, what's wrong with my spring collection, huh? You don't like short skirts?

Stefan: On you I adore them.

Nicole: Oh, Stefan, you never stop.

Stefan: But not every woman can wear them with the same degree of -- how should I put it? -- Success.

Nicole: That's not why I call them success dresses.

Stefan: It should have been.

Nicole: No, I don't think so.

Jason: Yeah, I know exactly what it is now that reminds me so much of your mother.

Nicole: Oh, you do?

Jason: Yeah, you were both like a little mouse who loved to play when the cat was away.

Nicole: How dare you!

Jason: Hits you where it hurt, huh?

Stefan: I'll make you regret this.

Nicole: No, don’t. Let's just get out of here, please.

Jason: Cass, you should have stuck around.

Stefan: My driver will be here any moment. Let me get that.

Nicole: No, I'm not cold. I'm --

Stefan: Let me get that.

Nicole: Oh, I'm just furious.

Stefan: Try to calm yourself. The man is not worthy of your anger.

Nicole: Oh, I can't believe that man, the nerve of him talking about my mother like --

Stefan: You give me no choice.

Felicia: Excuse me.

Ada: Excuse me. Felicia, Felicia. You're just the lady I want to see.

Felicia: You know, everything is absolutely perfect.

Ada: Oh, good, because I'm already into my next crisis.

Felicia: Oh, dear. What's happened?

Ada: We have known each other a long time, right?

Felicia: Right?

Ada: You know I wouldn't ask you a favor unless I was stuck.

Felicia: No, no, I know. Come on, what is it?

Ada: It's a biggie.

Felicia: Would you ask me?

Ada: I have to close this place so I can hire a new chef.

Felicia: Oh, Ada, I'm sorry.

Ada: Donna Hudson cannot have her bash here.

Felicia: You're not asking me to have it at Tops, are you?

Ada: It's an engagement party.

Felicia: Ada, come on. I mean, can't you find someplace else?

Ada: I've been calling all night, and Tops is the only place that can handle a party that big.

Felicia: You know I can't stand this. What am I supposed to tell Lisa?

Ada: Lisa has to accept what's going on. She has to move ahead. We all do. What do you say?

Evan: Here you go.

Maria: No, really, Maria’s my middle name. My first name is Moonbeam.

Evan: "Moonbeam."

Maria: My parents met at Woodstock.

Evan: The rock festival.

Maria: Uh-huh. Isn't that romantic?

Evan: Wait, when were you born?

Maria: 9 1/2 months later, may 21, 1970. Are you into astrology?

Evan: Did you say 1970?

Maria: Mm-hmm.

Evan: That makes you 18 years old.

Maria: Oh, but everybody says I look much older.

Evan: Well, they're right. Listen, Maria, I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but I think I'm going to put you in a cab.

Maria: Why? I thought you liked me.

Evan: Oh, I do like you, I do like you. It's just that -- well, let's just say that you're a little too young for me and -- well, you know, I just might take advantage of you.

Maria: Oh, no, you wouldn’t.

Evan: Oh, yes, I know me, and, yes, I would. Now, listen, don't take this wrong. I want you to talk this money and get yourself a taxi.

Maria: I don't want your money.

Amanda: Well, who would have ever thought that you would turn out to be a nice guy?

Evan: Not you.

Amanda: I have to admit I was a little surprised by what I just saw. You know, you ought to let the real Evan get out a little bit more. You really deserve somebody special.

Evan: Yeah, like you.
