Sam: Ah, ah. Ah, ha. What a great way to wake up.

Amanda: I needed you.

Sam: Well, you tossed and turned all last night. Was I dreaming, or did you really tell me --

Amanda: What's that smell?

Sam: That's the coffee maker. I turned it on automatic last night.

Amanda: Oh.

Sam: I can't believe it. Jason Frame was killed at that party last night.

Amanda: I know. I can't believe it, either. I saw the body.

Sam: Hey, you're not going to write about this, are you?

Amanda: No.

Sam: I mean, if Feliciaís the one who did it --

Amanda: I don't even want to think about it, not yet. All I want to do is go to mom's house and get Alli, bring her back, and just spend the whole day together.

Sam: That sounds like a great idea.

Amanda: Really? Think so?

Sam: Mm-hmm.

[Noise]

Sam and Amanda: Newspaper.

Sam: Yeah.

[Phone rings]

Amanda: I don't hear anything!

Sam: No.

[Ring]

Sam: It's still ringing! Agh!

Amanda: All right, all right, all right! I'll get the newspaper. You get the phone.

[Ring]

[Music plays]

Jamie: Good morning.

Vicky: Good morning.

Jamie: So --

[Noise]

Jamie: Oh, the paper's here.

Jamie: Look at this.

Vicky: What? "Big top bash ends in tragedy."

Jamie: Yeah. "A birthday celebration honoring Felicia Gallant ended in tragedy last night when one of the guests, Jason Frame, was fatally shot in an apparent freak accident."

Vicky: "Accident."

Jamie: "The shooting occurred in a circus tent erected for the occasion shortly after midnight. According to witnesses, Mr. Frame, a contractor, entered a hall of mirrors."

Jason: Now, why don't we just put all the cards right out on the table? You call your dog Cass off, or I tell Jamie it's not his baby and that you got somebody else's cake in that oven, honey.

Vicky: No, don't, Jason! You leave me alone!

Jason: You know, I was never 100% sure until now.

Jamie: "He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are investigating." It's so strange.

Vicky: What?

Jamie: Well, our life is just beginning and Jasonís has just ended.

Vicky: Oh, Jamie.

Courtney: That's all I found, and so there's nothing unusual here, except for this.

Rick: Hmm?

Courtney: Val showed it to me last night.

Rick: It's addressed to Noah Grady.

Courtney: And marked "return to sender."

Rick: The sender's Felicia Gallant. Her real name's Grady, right?

Courtney: Mm-hmm.

Rick: Fanny Grady.

Courtney: What's Jason doing with that?

Rick: Well, there's a good question.

Courtney: Got more. Look at this postmark.

Rick: "December 17, 1985"? Boy. Something about this just doesn't add up.

John: Morning.

Sharlene: Morning. Did you sleep all right?

John: Yeah. I slept like a log. Oh, shouldn't I be doing that for you? How are you this morning?

Sharlene: I have had better mornings. You want some coffee?

John: Yeah. Yeah, thanks.

Sharlene: Thank you for staying. I'm used to having a man around the house, you know.

John: Don't let Gloria Steinem hear you say that.

Sharlene: Yeah, even if Jason wasn't much of a man.

John: Sharlene --

Sharlene: Yeah.

John: When -- when Rick told you that Jason had been killed, you gave me kind of a funny look.

Sharlene: I did?

John: Yeah, several times.

Sharlene: Well, I mean, I -- I just found out that, you know --

John: You don't think that I had something to do with Jasonís death, do you?

John: I know it must have looked bad to you the way I took off after Jason.

Sharlene: You were furious.

John: I was. But I wasn't going to kill him.

Sharlene: You scared me. And then I find out that he's dead.

John: Sharlene, I didn't kill Jason. Felicia did.

Sharlene: Did you see Jason after you left here?

John: No. I never caught up with him.

Sharlene: But you were at the party.

John: Yes.

Sharlene: And you didn't talk to him?

John: No. Listen, you're going to have to make some arrangements.

Sharlene: Yeah, I know. Some funeral arrangements, I know.

John: I'll be glad to help you with anything that you need.

Josie: Mama --

Sharlene: Oh, honey. I know, I know.

Josie: How do we get through this?

Sharlene: Baby, we will. We did. We always have.

Josie: But he woke me up every morning!

Sharlene: I know.

Josie: He'd say -- he'd say, "Breakfast is ready," as soon as you make it.

Sharlene: Honey, he loved you. He really did. Oh, babe.

Josie: What's going to happen to us?

Sharlene: I don't know for sure. I don't know for sure. Everything's pretty much a mess right now, but I tell you what -- I'm not sure where to go right now, but --

John: Sharlene, I'm here for you.

Josie: Oh, you work really fast, don't you?

Sharlene: Josie --

Josie: You didn't like my uncle Jason, either!

Sharlene: Josie, that's enough. Josie --

John: It's all right, Sharlene. I understand.

Sharlene: Hey -- oh, come, babe. I think it's time you got ready for school.

Josie: I'm not going to school.

Sharlene: Oh, yes, you are! You're not going to miss your first day of college.

Josie: But I should be here with you.

Sharlene: Do you have any idea how proud your uncle would be to know he had a college student in the family, huh? Baby, he'd be telling everybody you had your PhD. already.

Josie: Are you sure you're going to be ok?

Sharlene: I'm going to be fine. And John will be here with me until you get back. Won't you?

John: You bet.

Josie: All right.

Sharlene: Jason was the only real father Josie had. She never knew her real dad. He was as close as she came to having one. And I was going to leave this place today.

John: Well, now you don't have to.

Sharlene: Do you want to know something really strange? I counted on him. I counted on him in a way like I never counted on anybody else. What am I going to do now?

Caroline: Why aren't you here?

Sam: What?

Caroline: Sam, we have tons of things to do before we leave for Milwaukee.

Sam: Oh, man, I totally -- I totally forgot. Will you give me a few minutes?

Caroline: Just hurry.

Sam: Right. Bye. Great.

Amanda: Where are you going?

Sam: Milwaukee.

Amanda: Oh, my gosh. I totally forgot! The Midwest great art show.

Sam: Yeah, and I'm late.

Amanda: You better get going.

Sam: Maybe I should call Caroline back and tell her I can't go.

Amanda: Why?

Sam: Well, mention Felicia. What if they need me?

Amanda: All right, look, this thing's only a day long, right? And New Yorkís biggest critics are going to be there.

Sam: Yeah, it's a pretty big deal.

Amanda: How big?

Sam: Like my career is riding on it.

Amanda: You're going.

Sam: Well -- we were going to spend the day together.

Amanda: Hey, we don't have to. I don't need you here that much to make you miss the show.

Sam: All right, but if I'm going, I really got to get going, because we got to put my new sketches together.

Amanda: "We"?

Sam: Yeah, Carolineís going, too. Didn't I tell you?

Amanda: No. I guess I should have guessed.

Sam: Amanda, she's really good in situations like this. There's going to be a lot of people there and agents and other artists and press people and critics.

Amanda: Sam, it's ok. You don't have to sell me on how good Caroline is for you -- professionally.

Sam: Hey.

Amanda: Hmm?

Sam: I'm going to go hop in the shower.

[Phone rings]

Vicky: Hello.

Amanda: Vicky, hi. It's me.

Vicky: Oh, hi.

Amanda: Did you see the paper?

Vicky: Mm-hmm, we both did.

Amanda: How's Jamie?

Vicky: As good as could be expected after what happened last night.

Amanda: Yeah. I kept dreaming about it.

Vicky: Me, too.

Amanda: I'd see Jason lying there in that pool of blood. And then I'd think about the phony pictures that he took of me and Drew Marsten.

Vicky: Yeah. That guy was quite a doll, wasn't he?

Amanda: What does all this mean to you?

Vicky: Nothing. Why would it mean anything to me?

Amanda: Well, the lawsuit that you filed against him. He was threatening you about it, wasn't he?

Vicky: Oh. Yeah. Yeah, he was.

Amanda: Vicky, if I were you, I would just forget about the lawsuit. Concentrate on Jamie and the baby.

Vicky: That's exactly what I plan to do.

Amanda: Ok. Well, look, if -- if Jamie needs somebody to talk to, just --

Vicky: Yeah, I'll tell him.

Amanda: Ok.

Vicky: Yeah, thanks.

Amanda: Thanks. Bye.

Vicky: Bye.

Jamie: Who was that?

Vicky: It was Amanda. She's concerned, and she just wants you to call if you need to talk to her or anything.

Jamie: Yeah, well, listen, I didn't know Jason all that well anyway, and what I did know, I didn't like. But I guess it is strange that he's gone.

Vicky: I know. Jamie, will you hold me? Hold me.

Jamie: Oh, honey. Honey, it's ok. This has really gotten to you, hasn't it?

Vicky: I used to think after all that Jason did to us, I wished that he was dead, and now he's --

Jamie: Honey, honey, honey, you didn't kill Jason. It was an accident. Don't you dare feel guilty about this. Come on. We have so much that's good in our lives right now.

Vicky: Mm-hmm.

Jamie: We've got ourselves, and what about the baby and -- and a new house.

Vicky: Yeah, we deserve to be happy, don't we?

Jamie: We sure do. Of course we do. I love you. Well, and so does Sharlene and Josie deserve to be happy, too.

Vicky: I've been thinking about them a lot.

Jamie: Listen, I have to get over to the farm. They've got to deal with the funeral arrangements and the house is in receivership, and they don't need to be dealing money on top of everything else.

Vicky: No, I'm going with you.

Jamie: You sure don't want to go and rest, perhaps?

Vicky: No, I -- I want to tell Sharlene that I am going to drop the case against Jason.

Jamie: Thank you.

Vicky: I have nothing against Sharlene. I'm a Frame now, too, remember? My family.

Jamie: What would I do without you?

Sam: Great.

Amanda: How's Felicia?

Sam: A wreck.

Amanda: Did I hear you say that she was being threatened by somebody?

Sam: Yeah. A scar-faced man. The cops are still looking for him.

Amanda: I wonder why she didn't tell me that?

Sam: Because she probably didn't want to print it.

Amanda: Do you think I should tell the cops about my notes being taken? It could be related.

Sam: It could be. Mitch says this guy's been following her around for a couple of weeks now.

Amanda: Was he at the party?

Sam: Yeah. Well, that's why she fired the gun. Mitch says this guy has been sending her stuff, all sorts of stuff -- letters, threats. Hey, your article ripped to shreds. I don't blame Felicia for freaking out.

Amanda: She's been edgy ever since I started this series. It almost seems like she never wanted it published at all. I wonder -- oh, no. No, that's way too far-fetched.

Sam: What?

Amanda: You don't suppose she could have set this whole thing up, do you? I mean, having my notes taken --

Sam: No.

Amanda: So that I couldn't do the series?

Sam: Amanda, that's crazy. It doesn't make any sense, and it doesn't sound like Felicia.

Amanda: Well, it doesn't make sense that Jason Frame was lying dead on the floor, either. I mean, what are the chances of him standing behind that mirror when Felicia --

Sam: Amanda, listen. Hey, I want you to stay out of this. And I mean that, Brenda Starr. If you don't, I'm not going anywhere.

Amanda: I'm just trying to look at things from every angle.

Sam: Will you stop being such a reporter? Felicia's already been through enough hell.

Amanda: I know that, and I'm not trying to make it any worse.

Sam: Ok, then donít.

Amanda: Look, if I can get to the truth, them maybe --

Sam: The truth? This is Felicia we're talking about, not video match. The truth of the matter is Felicia wouldn't hurt anyone.

Amanda: You know, I haven't even thought about video match for days. Especially that Dustin guy. He's really getting suspicious.

Sam: All the more reason to stay away from him, right?

Amanda: Yeah. Yeah, I guess you're right.

Sam: Listen, hon, why don't you take your mind off this for a while? Go pick up Alli.

Amanda: That's a great idea.

Sam: I have got to get going. Listen, are you sure you're going to be ok?

Amanda: Yeah, I'll be fine. Hey, if I -- if I wanted a scoop, I guess I sure got one last night, huh? I'd never seen anybody dead before.

Sam: Come here. Listen --

Amanda: Hmm?

Sam: Are you sure you want me to go? I'll stay.

Amanda: No. I'll be fine.

Sam: You promise?

Amanda: Do you promise to win?

Sam: Me? Of course.

Amanda: Ok.

Sam: All right.

Amanda: And I promise to be fine.

Sam: I love you.

Amanda: I love you, too.

Sam: Mmm. All right, I'm out of here. Whoa -- one second.

Amanda: Ok. Call me as soon as you find out anything, all right?

Sam: I will, I will, I promise, ok? And try to keep the kid up for me when I get home.

Amanda: I'll try.

Sam: Yeah. Bye.

Amanda: Bye.

[Knock on door]

Amanda: Dustin.

Dustin: Hi, Amanda.

Amanda: What are you doing here?

Dustin: I just thought I'd stop by and see if you wanted to Ė

Woman: Oh, you guys, listen to this. "The deceased, Jason Frame, returned to Bay City after 20 years of service in the United States Navy. He resided on a farm with his sister, Mrs. Sharlene Watts, and her daughter, Ms. Josephine Watts, who survive him, along with --" that's the girl Mac Coryís been seeing, isn't it?

Jesse: Yeah, you never think stuff like this happens to people you know.

Woman: Well, I've certainly never had a murder in my family.

Jesse: Yeah, I feel really sorry for Josie. I mean, she was really happy about starting this quarter.

Woman: She's registered?

Jesse: She was in my economics class.

Woman: You're kidding.

Jesse: No. Why?

Woman: Well, I just didn't think college was Josieís cup of tea. I mean, look at her family.

Jesse: What's that supposed to mean?

Woman: Well, the first time I ever saw Josie, I knew she was a loser.

Jesse: Oh, Kerri, you don't know what you're talking about, ok? Josie's a great person.

Kerri: Well, I'm sure all you guys think so, for obvious reasons.

Jesse: Look, Kerri, lay off, ok?

Matt: Josie --

Josie: Matt.

Matt: You heard all that, didn't you?

Josie: It doesn't matter.

Matt: It does matter.

Kerri: I just saw the paper --

Matt: Shut up, Kerri!

Kerri: I was just trying to --

Matt: You were just getting your kicks at Josieís expense. Do you realize what it took for her to come in here today? Huh. You're pathetic.

Rick: Hi.

Courtney: Hi. Any luck?

Rick: Six guys with scars, all of them with alibis for last night.

Courtney: You checked the Boston information?

Rick: Yeah. No listing.

Courtney: Hmm. "Merry Christmas, love, Fanny." I wouldn't call it incriminating.

Rick: Wonder who opened it.

Courtney: Well, we know he didn't, because it was returned to sender.

Rick: Why would she save it?

Courtney: Sentimental reasons?

Rick: Yeah, yeah, that could be. Well, what was with Jason doing with it?

Courtney: That's where I draw a blank. I mean, what would Jason want with an old Christmas card, and why would he want to hold on to it?

Rick: Yeah, well, from what I'm putting together about Jason Frame, he wouldn't hold on to anything unless there was some kind of angle to it.

Courtney: Hmm. What angle?

Rick: That's what I can't figure out. Now, Felicia claimed she was shooting to scare off a scar-faced guy in a strongman's costume. But Jason Frame ends up dead, shot by the gun he gave Felicia, carrying her Christmas card in his pocket.

Courtney: You think it means anything?

Rick: I don't know, but let's find out.

Courtney: Starting where?

Rick: Well, with the only people he might have confided in -- the Frames.

Dustin: The crib wasn't here the last time I picked you up.

Amanda: No, no. That was before.

Dustin: Before what?

Amanda: Before I started watching Alli, my niece, Samís daughter. She's really cute.

Dustin: Oh, he's married?

Amanda: He's divorced. It was really messy, though. He doesn't talk about it.

Dustin: I see, and you take care of his little girl?

Amanda: Yeah, sometimes.

Dustin: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: Often. But not right now.

Dustin: You got enough baby stuff here to take care of quintuplets.

Amanda: Yeah. You'd be amazed at how much you need to take care of one baby. And she's here a lot, so Sam likes me to have a lot of stuff.

Dustin: You two seem to be awfully close.

Amanda: We are. So what brings you here?

Dustin: Oh, I just thought I'd take a chance. I hope you don't mind. Your profile says you love surprises.

Amanda: I do, usually.

Dustin: Good. There's an exhibit of promising young painters down at the Stafford gallery, Sam Fowler and some others. I'd love to take you to see it.

Amanda: Oh, I've seen it.

Dustin: Well, how'd you like it?

Amanda: It was great.

Dustin: Well, then, come see it again. I won't take no for an answer. You can tell me what's behind every painting.

Amanda: Well, if you insist.

Dustin: I do. This'll be fun.

Amanda: Yeah.

John: When did the snow start?

Sharlene: A few minutes ago.

John: Hey, you're going to freeze.

Sharlene: It's peaceful, isn't it? It's quiet. It feels right. Jason used to say that snow put the world on hold.

John: Well, I'm glad you have some good memories.

Sharlene: That's why I want to get him buried soon. I want us at peace.

John: I know.

Sharlene: Jason -- my big handsome brother. He was so crazy, full of ambition. He wanted a better life so badly, and he went about it in all the wrong ways. You know, John, sometimes I think it's the curse of the Frames.

John: It's cold. Let's go inside.

Sharlene: No, no, not yet. Thanks for staying.

John: You really think that I would leave you alone after everything you've done for me?

John: All I did was listen. You took the first step.

Jamie: Hello? Anybody home?

Sharlene: Jamie, hi.

Jamie: Hi.

Sharlene: I didn't expect to see you. Vicky --

Jamie: It's really coming down. Hi. We came by to see what we can do.

Sharlene: Well, there's really nothing. Really, thank you, but John and I have made all the arrangements.

Jamie: Now, Sharlene, I know you could use a hand. I'm family, you know.

Sharlene: Of course you're family.

Vicky: I want to help, too, in any way I can.

Sharlene: I don't see what you can do now.

Caroline: Jason Frame dead? He wasn't very popular, but this is a bit hard to believe.

Sam: It was an accident.

Caroline: Well, so the papers say. That must have been some scene at the party.

Sam: Yeah, well, Amanda and I were there, and she was pretty upset. I didn't even want to go to this thing today.

Caroline: So who talked you out of it?

Sam: Amanda did.

Caroline: I'm glad, because this is very important, and you should be there.

Sam: That's exactly what she said.

Caroline: Yeah, and besides, I hate making that drive by myself.

Sam: Look, all I want to do is get there, win this prize, and get home to Amanda.

Caroline: Well, at least you're sounding positive, and that's good.

Sam: You think so? Huh.

Caroline: Oh, absolutely.

Sam: Yeah.

Caroline: I really think we made the right choice with entering Family Love. I mean, it's really your most emotional work so far.

Josie: No, I just -- I just want to go home.

Matt: Look, don't go. I'm sorry you had to hear that. Don't miss your class, though. You'd be letting her win.

Josie: What does she have against me, anyway?

Matt: I don't know. She's a troublemaker.

Jesse: Josie, look, I'm sorry about your uncle.

Josie: Thanks, Jesse.

Jesse: Kerri's got a big mouth and a very small brain. Don't pay any attention to her.

Matt: That's exactly what I've been telling her.

Jesse: See? Listen to Matt. He's almost as smart as I am.

Matt: Hmm.

Josie: Think so?

Jesse: Yeah, I know so. Look, I expect to see you in Intro to Eco, so don't let me down, ok?

Matt: Hey, good man.

Josie: Ok.

Matt: I'll catch you later.

Jesse: Look, if there's anything I can do to help, I'm sitting right there, just let me know.

Josie: Thanks.

Jesse: Later.

Josie: It was nice of you to stick up for me.

Matt: You know, I've been trying to call you all day.

Josie: Yeah, well, the phone's been off the hook. Reporters have been calling.

Matt: I couldn't believe it when my mom told me.

Josie: It's been awful. I mean, it's in all the papers. I thought I could get away from it by coming here, but I guess I canít. I don't have anywhere to go. I don't have anyone to turn to.

Matt: You've got me, Josie. You do. I mean that. I've been thinking about you all the time. We have to talk.

Josie: Those are police officers.

Matt: What do they want?

Josie: Oh, I don't know.

Rick: Josie, you got a couple minutes?

Josie: I guess so.

Courtney: We need to ask you a few questions.

Josie: Why?

Rick: Well, you remember me. I'm detective Graham. This is my partner, detective Walker.

Matt: Hey, hey, hey, she's been through enough.

Courtney: Why --

Matt: Why don't you leave her alone?

Rick: Matthew, please, this is just going to take a couple minutes, all right?

Courtney: Why don't we go somewhere less public?

Josie: Ok.

Rick: Please, come on.

Matt: Hey, wait a minute. Are you ok with this?

Josie: I just want to get it over with.

Rick: Ok, Josie, you want to just sit right here. You all right?

Josie: Yes, I'm ready.

Courtney: Thank you.

Rick: Ok. Now, your uncle -- did he know a man named Noah Grady?

Josie: Not that I know of.

Rick: Well, was he on good terms with Felicia Gallant?

Josie: What do you mean?

Courtney: Were they friendly?

Josie: Well, I guess. I mean, he was doing renovations on her apartment.

Rick: So he probably had to go over there quite a lot.

Josie: Well, yeah. Lately, almost every day.

Rick: What about your mother? Did she and your uncle get along well?

Josie: Yes, they did. I mean, they argued sometimes, but everyone does that.

Courtney: Sure.

Rick: Did they happen to argue recently?

Josie: Well, they -- they had a fight last night before my -- before my uncle left the house.

Courtney: Do you know why?

Josie: No, my mom wouldn't tell me, but -- my uncle -- well, he's been having money problems.

Matt: Hey, Josie, Josie, you don't have to answer that.

Courtney: We're just trying to establish Jasonís mental state before he went to the party.

Josie: Why? He's the one who died. Are you trying to blame him for that, too?

Courtney: Of course not. We're just trying to fill in missing pieces, that's all.

Rick: You know, Josie, thanks a lot. You've been a great help.

Courtney: Sorry for your trouble, Ms. Watts.

Rick: Look, we don't mean to intrude. We're just doing our job, ok?

Josie: I understand.

Courtney: Thank you.

Matt: At least that's over.

Josie: I hope so.

Sharlene: Thank you, Vicky. This -- this looks really, really good.

Vicky: Well, Jamie says that Bridget is almost as good a cook as you are.

Sharlene: Thank you. And thank you for coming. Sometimes when there's a death in the family, everyone leaves you all alone. It's like they're afraid of you.

Jamie: Well, that's not going to happen, Sharlene. I'm going to keep a close eye on you and Josie. I mean that, and you better get used to me asking you if you need anything, ok?

Sharlene: I appreciate what you're saying, Jamie.

Jamie: Vicky and I are serious about this, now.

Sharlene: Thank you.

Jamie: Listen, John, don't you suppose this fire could use some more wood? What do you say we haul some wood from the back porch?

John: Sounds like a good idea.

Jamie: We'll be back in a few minutes.

Vicky: Ok.

[Door closes]

Vicky: I -- I asked Jamie to give us this time alone.

Sharlene: Really? Why?

Vicky: I want to talk to you about the suit against Jason.

Sharlene: Vicky, what I said earlier --

Vicky: Please let me explain. I never meant any harm.

Sharlene: No, I'm sure you didnít. I'm sure you didnít. I just don't you think you thought about what it would feel like for Josie see strangers take away half of what we own.

Vicky: No, it was a mistake.

Sharlene: I don't know.

Vicky: I gave Cass this -- this case, and everything just happened automatically. He filed the papers, and this went into motion.

Sharlene: Well, I'm sure that you'll probably get some of your money now. At least, part of it from Jasonís estate.

Vicky: No, I dropped the case.

Sharlene: You what?

Vicky: The money was never really that important to me, and I would never want to take anything away from you and Josie.

Sharlene: Are you sure?

Vicky: Jason was my problem. He's gone, and --

Sharlene: And so are your problems.

Vicky: No. I didn't mean it that way. I --

Sharlene: Look, Vicky, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter, because no matter how much I loved my brother -- and I did love him -- I have no doubt that when he died a lot of people's problems died with him.

Sam: What are you doing here?

Amanda: Sam, you remember Dustin, don't you?

Sam: Yeah. Hi.

Amanda: And Caroline.

Caroline: Hello again.

Dustin: What a great place.

Caroline: I'm glad you like it.

Dustin: Yeah.

Amanda: Dustin was looking forward to seeing the Fowler exhibit.

Caroline: Oh.

Sam: I'll bet he is. He's pretty good, that guy, Fowler.

Dustin: I'm surprised to see you two together. I thought Sam was going out with -- what's her name?

Caroline: Tanya.

Dustin: Ah, yeah.

Sam: Well, that just didn't work out.

Amanda: That was just a blind date.

Sam: Well, we all date kind of loosely. It's easier that way.

Dustin: Ah, you're an amazing family. So are you into art, Sam?

Sam: I don't know too much about it, but I know what I like.

Dustin: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: Come on, Dustin, I'd really like to look at some other things.

Dustin: No, let's take our time. I want to savor each and every piece.

Sam: Great.

Dustin: That's quite a remarkable painting.

Sam: Yeah, well, you can really see the love in that family.

Amanda: Sam, it's ok. You don't have to pretend.

Sam: I don't?

Amanda: I told Dustin all about your messy divorce.

Sam: You what?

Amanda: I hope you don't mind. But he was asking why I took care of Alli, you know, when he saw all of her things at my loft.

Sam: Well, as long as he doesn't spread it around.

Dustin: I won't say a thing.

Sam: Excuse us for a moment. I need to talk to my sister.

Caroline: Dustin, let me show you some more of my impressive works.

Sam: What the hell is going on here?

Amanda: He showed up at the loft.

Sam: That guy's got some nerve. Ooh. Why didn't you just get rid of him?

Amanda: Because I didn't want to scare him away. I'd never get the goods on video match.

Sam: Oh -- I wish I hadn't agreed to go to this stupid show today.

Amanda: Look, really, you're overreacting. I have everything under control.

Sam: Oh?

Amanda: He doesn't have a clue.

Sam: Yeah. Well, you hope so.

Amanda: If you don't get going, those judges are going to be gone before you even get there.

Sam: Now, will you be careful, ok?

Amanda: I'll be ok. Just wishing my brother some good luck. He's got an awful lot of important things to do today.

Dustin: I see.

Caroline: Yeah, well, we'd better get going, like, right now.

Dustin: Oh, you're going, too?

Caroline: Sure. The moral support.

Dustin: I seem to remember you're very good at that.

Sam: See you, sis.

Amanda: Bye.

Caroline: Ciao.

Dustin: Do you always kiss your brother goodbye like that?

Amanda: No -- I mean, yes, of course.

Dustin: I can't stand it anymore.

Amanda: What's so funny?

Dustin: You. All of you. I know, Amanda. I know you're lying to me.

Amanda: What?

Dustin: That guy is your husband.

Amanda: Well -- oh -- well --

Dustin: And you're a reporter, right?

Sharlene: Thanks, guys.

Jamie: What's the phone doing off the hook?

Sharlene: Oh, I -- I took it off. I needed a rest. The press just keeps hounding us. It's a surprise to me they haven't been out here yet.

Jamie: Let's hope it stays that way. Vicky and I saw the paper.

John: They really went to town, didn't they?

Jamie: The headlines alone are enough.

Vicky: You know, I don't know why we have to put up with it. It was a tragedy, it's over, and everybody knows it was an accident. I don't know they're making such a big deal out of this whole thing and we have to listen to it.

Jamie: Vicky --

Sharlene: No, really, she's right. They just keep dragging this thing on and on.

John: It'll be over in a few days.

Sharlene: I'll tell you, it's not going to be easy living with this. But I'm glad we won't be moving. This farm is all we have.

John: Well, thank God Jason did transfer the titles and everything over to you. Otherwise, this farm and all the land would have been used to settle the estate.

Sharlene: I had no idea.

[Knock on door]

John: I'll get it. It's all right.

Sharlene: Thanks.

Courtney: Sorry to bother you again, but we need to ask you a few more questions.

John: I thought that all the rest of the investigation was just routine.

Rick: Not quite.

Matt: The police say all they got to do is find this guy with the scar, and -- I mean, he knows everything that happened.

Josie: Yeah. Won't bring my uncle back.

Matt: Hey, at least you'll understand why it happened.

Josie: I know he did a lot of bad things, but I loved him.

Matt: Do you want me to go to the funeral with you?

Josie: I don't know.

Matt: Josie --

Josie: I mean, after last night, I thought that we'd never -- we'd never talk to each other again.

Matt: I lost my temper. I acted like a jerk. Didn't mean to --

Josie: You seemed to mean everything you said.

Matt: No. I didnít. I was angry. I know now that you weren't wrong by working at those parties.

Josie: You mean that?

Matt: I wish that you would have told me.

Josie: Well, I wish I had, too. I just didn't know how. If I'd been honest with you, maybe we'd still be together.

Matt: Lisa said that the only reason why I'm so upset is because I care so much.

Josie: You talked to Lisa about it?

Matt: Last night.

Josie: Last night?

Matt: Before I took her to the airport.

Josie: What?

Matt: She left town, Josie. She's going to work in London.

Josie: I -- I guess you'll miss her.

Matt: Well, we'll always be friends, but it isn't what I have with you.

Josie: You're just feeling sorry for me, Matthew.

Matt: I am not. I'm trying to tell you that --

Josie: What?

Matt: I am sorry and --

Josie: What?

Matt: That I never wanted to break up with you. I never wanted to. I -- I said that I wanted you to count on me. I want you to.

Josie: Do you still want to see other people?

Matt: No. Do you?

Josie: No. I just said that because I was angry. I've wanted to take it back ever since. Oh, boy, I wish we could start over.

Matt: No, no, I don't, because then I wouldn't be able to learn from all the mistakes I've made.

Josie: Oh, Matthew --

Matt: No, I hope you know that I only did and said all those things is because I love you and I was out of my mind.

Josie: What did you say?

Matt: I love you.

Amanda: A reporter? What would ever give you that idea?

Dustin: Come on. How long are you going to keep this up? That business about Sam and Evan being your brothers -- that's strictly out of Faye Doe. And that story about your niece and Samís heartbreaking divorce -- that was priceless.

Amanda: What else do you know?

Dustin: I know that you work for "Brava" and that you're trying to get a hot scoop.

Amanda: Then why did you put me through this?

Dustin: Because it's fun watching you think on your feet.

Amanda: Unbelievable.

Dustin: I just played along with you.

Amanda: Ok, you're right. I'm sorry if I led you on.

Dustin: No, no, I knew right from the start it was strictly social.

Amanda: How did you find out about these things?

Dustin: It was simple. I knew Evan in New York and he never mentioned a sister. So I did some checking.

Amanda: But why did you come over to my loft this morning, other than to put me on the spot?

Dustin: Because I can tell you everything you want to know about video match.

Amanda: You can?

Dustin: Meet me at Paradise tonight. I'll tell you the story of a lifetime.

Courtney: We are trying to find something to establish Jasonís mental state.

Rick: For instance, do you know if he had any arguments recently?

Sharlene: What does it matter what Jason felt? I thought this was an accident.

Rick: We need to ask.

Sharlene: Jason and I had a quarrel.

Rick: What was it about?

Sharlene: That's personal, Rick.

Rick: Sharlene, we're just trying to tie up some loose ends.

Sharlene: Well, I'd like to know what kind of loose ends.

Rick: Well, the rest of you knew him. Maybe you can explain why he was carrying a Christmas card addressed to Noah Grady from Fanny Grady. It was found on his body.

Sharlene: I have no idea.

Rick: I see. Well, perhaps we could find some kind of connection if we could go through his personal effects?

Jamie: Don't you need a warrant for that?

Rick: Only if Sharlene objects.

Courtney: Look, no one here has anything to worry about. We're simply trying to understand what happened last night and why.

Sharlene: Are you saying that maybe this wasn't an accident?

Rick: Sharlene, we're not saying anything. Would you please help us?

Sharlene: Sure. Why not? Jason kept all of his personal things here, and you're welcome to look at them.

Rick: Thank you. Go through this? What's this? Take a look at this.

Courtney: What?

Rick: Apparently, Jason took notes.

Vicky: What is it?

Jamie: Looks like a ledger.

Rick: Sharlene, could we take this with us?

Sharlene: Sure. I don't see any problem.

Rick: Thank you very much.

Courtney: All right, thank you very much.

Rick: This might just be what we need.
