Matt: Josie --

Josie: I'm kind of busy, Matt.

Matt: Did you get my messages?

Josie: Yes.

Matt: Josie, please.

Josie: What?

Matt: I knew you were upset, and with the way things have been going -- I brought you this. Won't you even take it?

Amanda: What do you think this one is?

Sam: Caramel.

Amanda: Caramel's square.

Sam: Well, I hope it's not that pink stuff. If it's that pink stuff -- I hate that pink stuff.

Amanda: You're just going to have to take a chance, Fowler.

Sam: You should see yourself.

Amanda: Why?

Sam: You have got chocolate all over your --

Amanda: Where?

Sam: Well, you have chocolate here. And you have chocolate here.

Amanda: On my neck?

Sam: Mm-hmm. I never know how you manage by yourself.

[Amanda giggles]

Amanda: Sam?

Sam: Hmm?

Amanda: What time do we have to pick Alli up?

Sam: Remember? Your grandmother said she was going to take her to the park?

Amanda: Right.

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: So we have a lot of time.

Sam: Come here.

[Phone rings]

Amanda: Hmm.

Sam: Hmm. Let the machine get it.

Amanda: No, no. It could be important.

Sam: Oh, well, come on. What could be more important than what we're doing right now? Come here!

Amanda: It's probably about one of my stories.

Sam: Ugh! How come it's never for me?

Amanda: Hello? Yes, this is she.

Man: My name's Dustin Trent, Amanda. I saw your clip at video match.

Amanda: Oh. Right.

Sam: You know, I think Alli gets more phone calls than I do.

Amanda: Shh.

Dustin: Is now a bad time?

Amanda: Not -- not really.

Sam: I don't even know why I answer the damn thing. All I ever say is, "hold on, I'll get her."

Dustin: Well, I can call back later.

Amanda: No, no, no. Really, that's ok. Just let me -- let me turn off the TV, ok? That's much better.

Dustin: I was wondering if you'd like to have dinner together.

Amanda: When?

Dustin: Well, I was thinking maybe tonight unless you're busy.

Amanda: Uh -- well, right now, I am kind of busy.

Sam: And you're going to be a lot busier later. Ha-ha-ha!

Dustin: Well, I can call back later.

Amanda: No! No, no. Uh, look, we can work this out.

Sam: Hey Ė

Jason: Now, I got an x by every place that you got to sign.

Sharlene: I don't know about this, Jason.

Jason: I do, Sharlie.

Sharlene: I don't -- I hate this so much, Jason.

Jason: You want to hate somebody, then you hate Cass Winthrop. He's the one that's made us do it. Come on, please. Sharlie, would you sign it? Come on!

Sharlene: All right.

Jason: Right there.

Sharlene: I know --

John: Sharlene.

Jason: Sign your full legal name. Do I have to hold the pen for you?

John: Wait, wait. What are you -- what are you up to, Jason?

Amanda: Uh -- so where do you want to meet?

Sam: Who's on the phone, Amanda?

Amanda: Shh. Be quiet, ok?

Dustin: What?

Amanda: Quiet. Somewhere quiet.

Sam: Why quiet? Who is this?

Dustin: How about my place?

Amanda: Your place?

Sam: Would you tell me, please?

Amanda: Would you just -- just wait, ok?

Sam: No!

Dustin: What?

Amanda: Wait. I think we should wait until we know each other better to meet at your place.

Sam: To meet at whose place?

[Amanda groans]

Dustin: I keep hearing other voices.

Amanda: Oh, that. No. That's my cat.

Sam: I am not your cat.

Amanda: He's so playful. Get away from me, Sammy.

Sam: If you don't tell me who's on the phone, I'm going to eat all the caramels in this box!

Amanda: Don't you dare! I'm sorry, Dustin. The cat just got into the chocolate.

Dustin: I'll pick you up at your place.

Amanda: My place?

Sam: Whose place?

Dustin: I'll be there around 5:00.

Amanda: Great. I'll see you then. Whew. Oh.

Sam: Dustin -- he was really good in "the graduate." I remember him.

Amanda: Not that Dustin. What if he heard you?

Sam: Which Dustin are you talking about?

Amanda: I don't know. He said his last name was Trent or something. Oh, this place is a mess.

Sam: Would you kindly explain to me what the hell is going on here?

Amanda: Not until you help me move the crib, please?

Sam: Not until I help you do what?

Amanda: Look, Sam, this guy from video match is coming.

Sam: Oh, wait a second.

Amanda: You know this is very important to me.

Sam: Ahem-ahem.

Amanda: Stop looking at me like that. Please, help me get Alliís stuff out of here, and then -- then you're going to have to leave.

Sam: Oh! Is there anything else you would like me to do?

Amanda: Yeah. Don't be mad.

Sam: Mad? Oh, come on. All you're doing is throwing me and our baby's things out so you can have a date with another guy in this apartment. Come on, why would I be mad?

Amanda: It's my job, Sam.

Sam: Of course it's your job. I understand that and I would be a totally insensitive guy if I prevented you from doing your job.

Amanda: I knew you'd understand.

Sam: Yeah, but you better understand this, lady -- Iím not that sensitive a guy.

Amanda: You have to help me with this, Sam, please.

Sam: Oh! All right, on one condition.

Amanda: I wouldn't stand in the way of your career.

Sam: Just a double date.

Amanda: What?

Sam: I'll let you go if you double with your brother.

Amanda: Jamie's on his honeymoon.

Sam: Not Jamie.

Amanda: I haven't seen Matthew since before --

Sam: Not Matthew.

Amanda: I'm out of brothers, Sam.

Sam: Not really.

Amanda: What are you talking about?

Sam: You know something? I've always thought that we look a lot alike -- same ear lobes, we both have two eyes. It's amazing.

Amanda: Are you nuts?

Sam: Of course, the coloring is different. We could deal with that, though.

Amanda: You want to double with Dustin and me?

Sam: A night on the town, just the four of us.

Amanda: Wait a minute.

Sam: Hmm?

Amanda: How are we going to find you a date?

Sam: Oh -- a hunk like me? Oh, please. Huh.

Amanda: I'm serious, Sam.

Sam: Yeah, well, you know, I've been thinking. You've had so much luck with video match; I think I might try it. Now, where is that phone? Where is that?

Mary: Oh. Ooh. Aw.

Vince: Kids?

Mary: Huh?

Vince: The photographs you're looking at -- are they kids?

Mary: One kid and she's all grown up. These are the pictures I took of M.J. I just got them back.

Vince: You took all these while you were visiting M.J.?

Mary: Well, she just looked so beautiful to me. I just kept snapping away.

Vince: Well, she is beautiful.

Mary: And fun. Oh, Vince, we had such a good time.

Vince: It looks like it, yeah.

Mary: Ok, ready? All right, this is a little hard to tell since we're on a sled in the snow, but we are tobogganing. Um -- oh, we were walking to the movies. That's what we were doing there. And this -- we were shopping. Ooh, boy, did we shop. Do you know what I realized when I was there? M.J. and I are the only people in this family who really understand the gestalt of shopping.

Vince: The "gestalt"?

Mary: Yes. Everybody else in the family are buyers. M.J. and I are shoppers.

Vince: Mm-hmm. You really miss her, don't you?

Mary: Being with her was -- it was really neat. It was like having a little bit of the past back again.

Vince: Yeah, when this house was full of noisy kids yelling, "mama, mama, when's dinner going to be on the table?"

Mary: I really miss being called "mama." Isn't that dumb?

Vince: No, it's not dumb at all.

Mary: I'll get over it.

Vince: Why should you get over it? Hey. I know how you feel about family because I feel the same way. It's everything. You know, Mary, the last couple of days I've been doing some thinking, some very hard thinking.

Mary: About what?

Vince: What is keeping us here?

Mary: Uh -- what do you mean?

Vince: Well, the kids are all grown, right? They moved away. Mary's place burned down. I mean, why are we staying here in Bay City?

Mary: Are you saying what I think you're saying?

Vince: Do you remember what we talked about the day we got the check from the insurance company?

Mary: About it being a whole new start for us?

Vince: Right, and all we had to do was just pick up and go!

Mary: Well, but there are still things to keep us here.

Vince: Like what?

Mary: Like my job, for one thing.

Vince: Oh! I guess there's no work for psychologists in a city, say, like Minneapolis.

Mary: Well -- maybe. Yeah, but -- but we have -- all of our friends are here.

Vince: What, are we going to lose them? We couldn't lose them if we tried. Besides, we'll make new ones, maybe like M.J.

Mary: M.J.

Vince: Minneapolis is a little cold in the winter.

Mary: No, it's a great city. It is a great city. I mean, they have the Guthrie and they have the Walker Arts Center and they've got the Nicoll-- did I tell you that M.J. lives, like, 10 blocks from Nicollet mall?

Vince: Well, I like the neighborhood she lives in.

Mary: Yeah, it's really nice, isn't it? All those trees and the houses are beautiful and people are friendly.

Vince: Do you think there's room for two more friendly people?

Mary: Actually, there's this really terrific condominium complex, brand-new, just, like, two or three blocks away from M.J.

Vince: Sounds good to me.

Mary: You mean just pull up stakes?

Vince: Yank those suckers right out of the ground!

Mary: And move two or three blocks away from M.J.

Vince: Ben said he loved Minneapolis when he went to visit M.J.

Mary: Yeah, then --

Jake: I'd lay you three-to-one he ends up moving there.

Mary: Hi.

Jake: I'd go for it, you guys. M.J. would love it.

Vince: Now, listen, you and me, we haven't had an adventure for a long time. What do you say?

Mary: Well, I say -- Yes! I say yes!

Vince: Yes!

Mary: Yes!

Vince: She says --

Vince and Mary: Yes!

[Vince chuckles]

Mary: No, we can't go! What about you and Marley?

Jake: Oh, don't worry about us. We'll make it. You guys just start looking out for each other. I mean, all you've done for the last couple of years is look out for everybody else, especially me.

Vince: Oh, hey, get out of here! You've paid your own way from the very beginning.

Jake: No. No, you know what I mean, Vince. Look, guys, I'm not going to -- I'm not going to forget everything you've done for me. But Marley and I are ok. We're doing fine. It's time you guys looked out for each other, you know? It's time.

Vince: Hey.

[Vince grunts]

Jason: Butt out, John.

John: I asked you a question, Jason.

Sharlene: John, it's ok.

John: What is?

Jason: Cass Winthrop is trying to take everything I got. Now, what little I have left I am trying to protect by signing it over to Sharlie. That all right with you?

John: Signing what over?

Jason: Come on, sign it, please, every page.

Sharlene: Jason is putting the farm and the equipment in my name for safekeeping.

Jason: Yeah, just don't forget who really owns it.

Sharlene: Jason, I don't know where Josie and I would've been without your help. I won't forget anything.

Jason: Yeah. If it wasn't for me, you wouldn't have met so many new people with so many new ideas, would you?

John: Sharlene, what happened to this place?

Sharlene: Well, they sort of cleaned us out.

John: Who did? Does this have something to do with Vickyís money?

Sharlene: Yes.

John: I'm not so sure you should've signed everything.

Sharlene: I had to do what he asked. He's my brother.

Josie: Wasn't Lisa at home?

Matt: I know you're angry and I don't blame you.

Josie: That's very generous of you, Matthew.

Matt: And I also know that valentine candy isn't going to make it up, but I didn't buy it for anyone but you.

Josie: I'm really busy, Matthew.

Matt: Well, give me two minutes.

Josie: For what?

Matt: To explain, to apologize.

Josie: You've already done that, Matthew. You've explained everything. There's someone else.

Matt: No, no!

Josie: It happens, Matthew. I understand.

Matt: Listen, we -- we didn't really talk. The marshal came in --

Josie: I don't want to talk about that.

Matt: If your family's in trouble, let me help.

Josie: I don't want any help from you.

Matt: I don't like seeing you like this. Now, if you think you can avoid me, you're wrong.

Reuben: Oh -- Matthew Cory, right? How you doing, man?

Matt: How you doing, Reuben?

Reuben: And you must be Miss Josie watts, right?

Josie: That's right.

Reuben: Just the person I wanted to see.

Josie: Oh? What about?

Reuben: Oh, um, about this. You know, the special introductory offer? Well, I'm here to introduce myself -- and to get the free session.

Josie: This says "Zack Edwards."

Reuben: Huh. You know, that's funny -- for some reason, people keep getting us mixed up.

Matt: No, she means it was sent to Zack. He might want to use it.

Reuben: Oh, no, no, no, that's ok. See, he's real busy, man. Trust me. I just saw this laying on the kitchen table, so I said to myself, "Reuben --" you see, I call myself "Reuben" when I talk to myself -- I said, "Reuben, you should check this out." And from what I see so far, this place is pretty cool.

Josie: Well, I'm glad you like it.

Reuben: Did -- did I do something wrong --

Matt: No.

Reuben: I mean, just because my name isn't on this?

Matt: No, no, it's ok. No problem.

Reuben: I mean, is this place only for rich people, then?

Matt: No, it's for anybody.

Reuben: Oh, "anybody." But it ain't cheap.

Josie: We think it's pretty reasonable.

Reuben: Ok, I get it now. Yeah, Zack's a lawyer and he's got bucks, so if you got money, then you can get a card, right?

Matt: It's a business.

Reuben: Hey, I ain't got nothing against rich people, man. I wish some of my best friends was rich. I just came here to meet people, that's all.

Josie: Well, we have plenty of professional people here.

Reuben: See -- "professional" people. Yes, that's the kind of people I need to get to meet. You know, I mean, if Iím going to get ahead, I'm going to need connections. Ain't that right, Matt?

Matt: Yeah, yeah. That helps. Listen, here's an application. Why don't you fill that out and I'll get back to you later. I'm going to straighten something out.

Reuben: All right, sounds good.

Matt: We'll talk later, ok?

Sharlene: Well, I think I'm going to fix myself some tea. Can I get you something?

John: Yeah, tea would be fine.

Sharlene: Oh, wait -- I forgot. The -- the tea service is gone. That's one of the first things the marshals took.

John: Coffee would be fine.

Sharlene: Ok, yeah. Let's see if I can rig something up. Don't know whether I have any filters. God, this is embarrassing.

John: Why?

Sharlene: They took all our things. I thought that only happened in the movies.

John: You think that I care about that?

Sharlene: You care about the job at the Cory complex. Jason lost that, too.

John: Actually, no, he didnít. Mac took Jason off the job. Frame Construction still has the project.

Sharlene: Oh. Good. Good, I -- I'm relieved to hear that.

John: Then why can't you look at me?

Sharlene: Because I -- I feel --

John: You feel what? Ashamed?

Sharlene: Maybe I can use the paper towel --

John: Hey, Sharlene? Listen to me. You are a wonderful, a hard-working woman who has managed to raise a terrific daughter all on her own. You are kind and you're honest --

Sharlene: Hmm.

John: Not to mention unbelievably attractive. You have absolutely nothing to be ashamed -- what -- what is it? Sharlene?

Sharlene: John, no --

John: Did I say something wrong?

Sharlene: No.

John: Oh, that's great. As if your life isn't complicated enough, I come along --

Sharlene: No, just stop it, John.

John: And make it even more -- I mean, I dump all of my problems on -- on -- Iím sorry. Look, maybe I should just shut up and get out of here.

Sharlene: No, don't you dare! Don't leave me alone. Please don't.

John: Oh.

John: Ok. You know what you need?

Sharlene: I need a new brother and a million dollars.

John: Guess again.

Sharlene: I canít.

John: You need a little break from reality.

Sharlene: How?

John: Come with me.

Sharlene: Where are we going, John?

John: Caroline Staffordís art gallery.

Sharlene: Oh, John, wait a minute. Wait.

John: She's showing a new Brazilian artist.

Sharlene: No, no, no. Come on, you know how -- how sensitive I think you are.

John: Yeah, I think you do.

Sharlene: John, they took away my washer and my dryer and you want to take me to an art gallery.

John: It's a Brazilian artist.

Sharlene: Brazilian art?

John: Mm-hmm. The place is open to the public. We can stay there as long as we like, and since I did the renovations, I know all the little nooks and crannies and quiet little places where we can sit and talk. It'd be a great place to get away from Jason.

Sharlene: Well, you never know. I mean, knowing Jason, he might decide this is a dandy time to invest in some Brazilian art.

John: Come on. Come with me.

Sharlene: Oh.

John: Ok.

Sharlene: Lead the way, lead the way.

John: Vamonos.

[Music plays]

Sam: She has to be bright --

Auntie Rose: Bright.

Sam: Witty.

Auntie Rose: Good.

Sam: Tall.

Auntie Rose: Uh-huh.

Sam: Blonde.

Auntie Rose: Mm-hmm.

Sam: And big -- eyes.

Auntie Roe: Big eyes?

Sam: Gorgeous.

Auntie Rose: Well, you mean really gorgeous?

Sam: It depends on what you mean by "gorgeous."

Auntie Rose: Well, sugar, what do you mean by "gorgeous"?

Sam: Michelle Pfeiffer, Susan Sarandon.

Auntie Rose: Oh. Well, how about poise and warmth and inner beauty?

Sam: And mother says she has a nice personality? No, thank you.

Auntie Rose: Now, now, Sam, you said you need to have a date tonight, right?

Sam: Yeah, tonight.

Auntie Rose: Well, then, you just may have to accept some alternatives.

Sam: Someone in the Cher category?

Auntie Rose: We take great pride in our service here, and it is important to us to satisfy our customers. Now, can I be blunt?

Sam: Please, be blunt.

Auntie Rose: Most of my women clients might be just a little skittish about trying to arrange such a last-minute rendezvous.

Sam: Are you telling me that you're going to set me up on a blind date with a Henry Kissinger look-alike?

Auntie Rose: Oh -- well, let me put it like this. If you were to sign a contract with our service rather than just proceeding freelance, I might be of some service to you.

Sam: Well, if that's what it takes.

Auntie Rose: Good. Well, then, you just sit down here, fill this out --

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Auntie Rose: And I'll go see what I can do for you. You just make the check out to "Video Match," ok?

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Auntie Rose: I'll make a few phone calls.

Sam: Come on, Cher.

Singer: Do you like me to say hey, hey

Jake: Hi. Do you know where Auntie --

Sam: Jake.

Jake: Sam?

Both: What are you doing here?

Jake: Well, I --

Sam: Well, look, I'm just here to -- you go first, ok?

Jake: No, you.

Sam: I'm trying to get a date for tonight.

Jake: What?

Sam: Well, so I can double with Amanda and her date.

Singer: Say hey

Jake: You guys are certainly liberal, Iíll give you that.

Sam: No, no, no, no. See, Iím trying to get it so she's not alone with this guy. See, she -- look, she is doing an undercover article on Video Match. See?

Jake: Oh, I -- I didn't know that.

Sam: Well, it's kind of complicated. What are you doing here?

Jake: Uh -- I work here.

Sam: You work here?

Jake: Yeah, I work here.

Sam: You work here? Look, you cannot tell Auntie Rose anything I told you. If you do, this story is blown.

Jake: Ok, my lips are sealed.

Sam: Oh, great.

Jake: But, look --

Sam: Thanks.

Jake: Listen, you got to tell Amanda to leave me out of this story. I mean, Marley doesn't know I'm working here, all right?

Sam: Why?

Jake: I -- Iím trying to pick up some extra cash with all the bills and everything.

Sam: Shh, shh, shh.

Jake: She thinks Iím still working at the documentary production company.

Sam: Jake, you shouldn't lie to your wife.

Jake: You don't understand.

Sam: Well, what happens if she needs to get a hold of you and she doesn't know where you are?

Jake: Sam, I am doing the very best I can. Just make sure she doesn't --

Sam: Ahem, Auntie Rose, hi.

Auntie Rose: Hi. You two know each other?

Sam: No. No, I just asked him the time. I'm kind of in a hurry.

Jake: Yeah, and -- and I need my paycheck.

Auntie Rose: Oh, I have it right here for you. Now, Jakeís the one who's going to be making your video, Sam. He's our technician.

Sam: Yeah, well, what about tonight?

Auntie Rose: Here -- oh, you are in luck. I have found the perfect date for you.

Sam: Great!

Auntie Rose: She is such a special young woman. I think you two are really going to hit it off.

Jake: "Special"?

Man: Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

Reuben: How long you been there, man?

Man: You're dropping your left, Reuben. You drop your left, you're going to get nailed.

Reuben: What are you doing here, man?

Man: I'm here. What do you care? I am here and I've been hearing things about you.

Reuben: What you been hearing?

Man: I hear you're going straight on me, living the high life with that fancy lawyer -- what's his name?

Reuben: You know what his name is, man.

Man: Zack Edwards. So it's true -- my homeboy has become a yupster punching the air in a gym -- excuse me, a health spa.

Reuben: Look, man, this homeboy is on probation, all right? I just want to live out my time.

Man: Hey, man, you know who you're talking to? The Duke. Is it true Reuben Lawrence has gone legitimate on me? You've retired now?

Reuben: I'm just being cool, ok?

Duke: Ok, Reuben cool. I got some ideas. You interested?

Reuben: I'm listening.

Duke: Well, I figure that fancy roommate of yours -- he's got to have computers, right? And V.C.R.'s and TVs and stereos and silverware and all that kind of stuff? So what do you say we beat him?

Amanda: Oh -- you don't know how I hate this.

Sam: I don't see why we just can't leave that here.

Amanda: Sam, how am I going to explain that? A baby crib, 300 stuffed animals, a mobile, and Iím supposed to be a single woman.

Sam: You don't owe this guy any kind of explanation.

Amanda: This is business, Sam. I've got to get this over to Vickyís.

Sam: Wait a second.

Amanda: What?

Sam: You haven't asked me about my date.

Amanda: Ahem. What about her?

Sam: She's tall, blonde, blue-eyed, has a high I.Q.

Amanda: How high?

Sam: I specified over 160.

Amanda: Go on.

Sam: She's related to Michelle Pfeiffer -- second cousin twice-removed, something like that.

Amanda: I hate this dating thing.

Sam: Really? You, too, huh?

Amanda: Come on, Sam. Don't tease me. You know if there was another way of researching this article, I would do it.

Sam: Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, come here. Come here for a second. Look, we love each other too much to let something like this bother us. Right?

Amanda: Right.

Sam: Ok.

Amanda: Oh, no.

Sam: "Oh, no," what?

Amanda: I can't let that stay out. Oh. Oh, why did I ever agree to let him come here?

Sam: Wait a -- wait a second. Please stop running around in circles. You're driving me crazy, honey.

Amanda: It's driving me crazy, too, Sam. We can't stay here.

Sam: What do you mean?

Amanda: I mean this is our home!

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: I'm not going to dismantle it for some geek for a video dating service.

Sam: All right, now you are talking.

Amanda: We'll go to Evanís.

Sam: What?

Amanda: Evan will let me use his place. He knows how important this is to me. What did I do with his number?

Sam: Ah. Why are you calling Evan?

Amanda: I'm going to ask him if it's all right if you and I bring a couple of friends over for drinks.

Sam: Amanda, why are you dragging Evan into this?

Amanda: Don't you have to get ready for your date?

Sam: Yeah, but I want to talk about this.

Amanda: You don't want to keep her waiting, now, do you?

Sam: Fine, fine.

Amanda: Hello, Evan?

Sharlene: Are we the only ones here?

John: Yeah. Other than the security guard, I think so.

Sharlene: Why are we whispering?

John: I don't know. You started it.

Sharlene: Oh, look at this one. Oh. What do you think of this one? What kind of art do you like?

John: Uh -- I'm really not much of a connoisseur.

Sharlene: Impressionism is my favorite -- Renoir or Gauguin. Josie gave me an art book last Christmas that is absolutely beautiful and every time Iím in a bad mood, you know, I get the book out. What is that look for?

John: It's just that I learn something new about you all the time.

Sharlene: Well, what did you think -- that I only liked those paintings of Elvis on black velvet?

John: I didn't think that you ever thought about it much.

Sharlene: Well, I do occasionally.

John: Well, what else am I going to learn about you?

Sharlene: Do you like this one?

John: Oh, uh -- I don't know.

Sharlene: I mean, the colors --

John: I just don't have much of an opinion about it.

Sharlene: But look at the colors -- they're so unusual. I think that the same artist that did this one I'm sure did this painting here. Oh, this is beautiful.

[Children chant]

Mary: I really kind of hate leaving Jake and Marley when things are not really settled.

Vince: Wait a minute. They're only in their 20s! How settled can they be?

Mary: Well, I just -- I just don't like leaving them when things are so up in the air.

Vince: Wait a minute -- you heard Jake. He's grown up. He knows what he wants.

Mary: Yes, well, he has changed.

Vince: Yeah. I mean, they have each other. They -- I'm not worried about them at all. They're going to make a go of it.

Mary: Ok. If you're not worried, Iím not worried.

Vince: They got the basics, just like you and me. They're nuts about each other.

[Vince and Mary chuckle]

Mary: Yeah!

Vince: Hey, but let's get this show on the road. I'm going to call M.J. and tell her she's got a new partner if she really wants one!

Mary: Ok, call me in as soon as you get her on the phone.

[Knock on door]

Jason: Mary, you got a minute? I need a favor.

Mary: Jason, I don't think I really want --

Jason: No, it's not for me. It's for Sharlene.

Mary: Come in.

Jason: Thanks.

Mary: What's wrong?

Jason: I'm kind of worried about her these days.

Mary: Why? What's the matter?

Jason: Well, she's under a lot of pressure, a lot of tension, a lot of hours, and I think she's got to see a doctor.

Mary: Well, Jason, Iím not a medical doctor. You know that.

Jason: Well, yeah, but your office is at the hospital, right?

Mary: Yes, right.

Jason: Well, I thought maybe you could give me a referral, somebody there.

Mary: You want a referral?

Jason: Yeah, exactly what Iíd like.

Mary: Ok, fine. I will give it some thought and I will get in touch with Sharlene in the morning.

Jason: No -- no, she is very sensitive. I mean, if you give her a number, she's going to sit on it, she'll lose it, she won't do it. That's why I thought if you could give me the name of some really good woman's doctor, then I can set it up for her.

Mary: Well, all right. Um -- I think Sarah Peterson is about the best.

Jason: She real good?

Mary: Yeah, I think she's excellent. She's a gynecologist and I think that Sharlene would probably feel very comfortable with her.

Jason: And what are her hours?

Mary: Well, I'm not sure. I know she sees patients in the morning and I think she's there till about 3:00.

Jason: And her office is at the hospital, right?

Mary: Yes.

Jason: She's so sensitive. If she makes an appointment to see Dr. Peterson, she's not going to have to maybe see some other doctor, right?

Mary: No. Dr. Peterson is in practice by herself.

Jason: And if Dr. Peterson isn't there when she calls --

Mary: Then she'd get an answering service because the nurse and the secretary leave when Dr. Peterson does.

Jason: Whew. Well, you know there are some offices that got so many doctors going in and out; I don't know how they keep their records straight on their patients.

Mary: Computer.

Jason: Oh, yeah. Yeah, well, that -- hey, thank you. I will call and set it up for Sharlene, ok?

Mary: Ok. And if Sharlene still feels uncomfortable, she could perhaps talk to one of Dr. Peterson's other patients.

Jason: Oh, no, I don't think that's necessary. Thanks.

Mary: Wait a minute.

Jason: Yep?

Mary: Vicky is one of Dr. Peterson's other patients.

Jason: Oh, then that means she's a great doctor. That's perfect. Thanks.

Jake: Hey, Mary, hurry up. M.J's on the phone upstairs.

Mary: Oh -- don't hang up, Vince! Is that all you wanted?

Jason: Yeah, I was just starting to go.

Jake: Well, I thought you were just starting to go.

Jason: Yeah, I was, but actually, I wanted to talk to you for a second.

Jake: Me?

Jason: Yeah, I had a couple questions for you about Victoria.

Reuben: Um -- yeah, yeah, you got that right, Duke. Um -- you know, that's why I got myself a job -- so I can save the money that I earn so I can buy a TV and a V.C.R. And a computer.

Duke: Ahem -- yeah. You do that. It'll only take you about 10 years to save up for it. Wow. No wonder people join health clubs.

Reuben: Yo, would you please be cool, ok?

Duke: Hey, I am cool. Excuse me. Allow me to introduce myself. They call me the Duke.

Josie: Well, I'm -- Iím Josie.

Duke: Josie! Pretty name for a pretty lady. You got a boyfriend, don't you, Josie? I'm sure you do.

Josie: Well, I -- I thought I did, but he seems to be interested in someone else.

Duke: Boy, he must be crazy. But I'm not. And I'm no boy, either. What time do you get off work, Josie?

Josie: Uh -- I get off really late.

Duke: Well, maybe I could come by and pick you up.

Josie: Oh, no, I can't, sorry.

Duke: Come on. Maybe we could go to the movies or something -- you know?

Josie: Uh -- no. No, thanks.

Duke: Aw, come on, baby. We could go listen to some tunes, maybe dance. You don't know what you'll be missing, girl.

Reuben: Yo, man, I just remembered something I got to show you.

Duke: What?

Reuben: It's outside. Come on, man.

Duke: Hey, baby. I'll see you later, pretty girl. Maybe I can, you know, join up.

Reuben: Come on before they lock up.

Matt: If you're trying to make me jealous --

Josie: I wasn't trying to do anything.

Matt: That guy's a creep.

Josie: Did I say I'd go out with him? You know, maybe now you know how I felt when I saw you with Lisa.

Matt: Hey, I tried to explain that, ok?

Josie: You know, I know how you might want to see other people. I just -- I just don't understand why you can't admit it.

Matt: I don't want to break it off. I -- wait -- listen. I went to the bank.

Josie: What?

Matt: I went to the bank and had them draw up this check.

Josie: I don't understand.

Matt: Well, I want to help out your family. I mean, you can get your things back and --

Josie: Matthew, you want to give me money?

Matt: Just trying to help, Josie.

Josie: Hey, I don't need your money. If that's what you think I want -- look, I think we should just start seeing other people, all right?

Matt: No, wait a minute. You're upset.

Josie: No, I'm not upset. Hey -- hey, it's not the end of the world, you know.

Matt: Ok, ok, it's not the end of the world. You want to start seeing other people -- is that you want?

Josie: Yes, yes.

Matt: Well, then, you've got it.

Josie: Fine!

[Knock on door]

Amanda: Hi.

Dustin: You must be Amanda.

Amanda: Yeah, I -- I must be.

Dustin: Dustin Trent.

Amanda: Hi, Dustin. Nice to meet you. Uh -- come on in.

Dustin: Thanks. Uh -- this is for you.

Amanda: Oh, thank you. Well, you shouldn't have. It's beautiful. Here. So, do you want to come in and have a seat?

Dustin: Sure.

[Knock on door]

Amanda: That must be my brother.

Dustin: Your brother?

Amanda: Yeah. He's going to be joining us, he and a date. I hope you don't mind. Um -- he's really a great guy.

Dustin: Yeah.

Amanda: Hi, brother, dear.

Sam: Hi, sis. Boy, don't you look nice. Ahem. This is Tanya, my date.

Amanda: Hi, Tanya. Nice to meet you.

Tanya: You two guys look nothing alike.

Sam: Really? I think there's an amazing resemblance.

Amanda: People often mistake us for twins. Come on in.

Tanya: Thank you.

Sam: Take your coat.

Amanda: Here, I'll take that.

Tanya: Thank you.

Amanda: I'd like you to meet Dustin. Dustin, this is my brother Sam, and his sister Tanya.

Sam: Ahem.

Tanya: Not his sister.

Amanda: Date! Date. His date, Tanya. I'm his sister.

Sam: You're my sister. She's my sister.

Dustin: Right.

Amanda: He's my brother and her date and --

Dustin: Right.

Amanda: And not my --

Dustin: Mm-hmm.

[Laughter]

Amanda: Why don't we all go sit down, huh?

[Squeak]

Tanya: Ooh. What was that? Excuse me. Must've sat on something.

Amanda: That? No -- oh, well --

Sam: Well, look at this. It looks like a child's toy.

Amanda: Oh, yes, it does, doesn't it? But it's not.

Sam: Really? You could've fooled me.

Amanda: No, it's one of those practical jokes, you know? You sit on it and it makes a funny sound, just like it just did.

[Laughter]

Tanya: You think that's funny?

Amanda: I have kind of an offbeat sense of humor.

Sam: It takes a while getting used to.

Amanda: I have an idea.

Sam: She also has very offbeat ideas.

Amanda: Why don't we go to my other brother's place?

Dustin: Your other brother?

Tanya: You have another brother?

Amanda: Uh-huh.

Sam: Yeah! Sure. She's got brothers all over town.

Tanya: Oh, yeah? So you guys must have a big family, too, huh?

Amanda: Oh, we're very close.

Sam: Yeah, especially us, right, Amanda?

Amanda: Peas in a pod.

Sam: Birds of a feather.

Tanya: Oh, not us. We have eight kids in our family and we all hate each other.

Sam: What a shame -- ahem.

Amanda: So, shall we go?

Dustin: Where does this other brother live?

Amanda: Oh, not very far away. You know, he's got a great place -- high ceilings.

Tanya: Mine.

Amanda: Oh.

[Tanya giggles]

Amanda: High ceilings, big windows.

Dustin: Uh-huh.

Amanda: It's so great, it's got a great view. You guys are going to go crazy.

Sam: I think one of us already is.

Amanda: Sam was always the wit in the family.

Tanya: You know, you guys should go on "Family Feud." Me and my brothers were on last year.

Amanda: No kidding?

Tanya: Yeah. They flew us to L.A. and everything.

Amanda: How'd you do?

Tanya: Bad. Do you know when they say, "and the survey says --"

[Tanya makes buzzer sounds]

Tanya: It was never up there.

Sam: Well, it's a tricky game.

Amanda: After you, Tanya.

Tanya: Hey, name a fruit that has lots of pits.

Sam: What, me?

Tanya: Yeah.

Sam: Watermelon.

Tanya: That's the number one answer! You are so good.

Dustin: This should be some evening.

Amanda: One I'm sure we won't soon forget.

Jake: Vicky's healthy, happy, and married. What more is there to say?

Jason: Hmm, nothing. That's all I really wanted to hear, I guess.

Jake: Great. I'll be seeing you.

Jason: Yeah. You guys had a real close thing there for a while, didn't you?

Jake: We grew up together, Jason.

Jason: Jake, it was more than that.

Jake: We were friends. We still are. What the hell business is that of yours anyway?

Jason: You were having an affair with her. You slept with her. It's only been about seven months, hasn't it?

Jake: How do you know? You're crazy, Jason. Get out of here.

[Children chatter]

Sharlene: John, should we go?

[Children chant]

Sharlene: John?

[Helicopter hovers]

Sharlene: It's the children, isn't it?

[Explosions]

Sharlene: John, talk to me. Talk to me.

John: Oh, my -- children. I killed them. I killed all of the children.

Sharlene: John!
