Singer: High energy your love is lifting me lifting me high oh, high ooh

Iris: I want all these done in triplicate and sent over to the accountant, ok? Thanks, dear.

Donna: Iris. What are you doing here?

Iris: What am I doing here? This is my spa, Donna. I own the place.

Donna: What are you doing here so late, Iris?

Iris: I'm working. I got back from Europe and found everything in a terrible mess.

Donna: Oh, what a shame.

Iris: So, the question is, what are you doing here?

Donna: I'm a member. I came to use the facilities. Unless, of course, you've canceled my membership.

Iris: On the contrary, I thought you might have canceled after our conversation the other day.

Donna: Oh, no, I love the spa. It's a perfect place to come and prepare for a special occasion.

Iris: What occasion?

Donna: Michaelís coming home tomorrow.

[Music plays]

Mac: Well, is it all set?

Ada: Yeah, it should take care of the music for a while.

Mac: Good, thank you.

Ada: Now, Sam wonít be here tonight? How come?

Rachel: Well, we haven't told you, but Amanda is away for several days.

Ada: And nobody asked me to baby-sit?

Mac: Well, it's not like that, Ada.

Ada: What is it like?

Rachel: She left rather suddenly.

Ada: When is she coming home?

Mac: Nobody knows.

Ada: Why not?

Mac: Because she's only called twice, and she's not able to tell us that yet.

Ada: Where is she?

Mac: Nobody knows that either.

Ada: I donít get it.

Nicole: Cass, you were brilliant.

Cass: Oh, I was mediocre. I was run-of-the-mill.

Nicole: Oh, no, it was the best voir dire I've ever seen.

Cass: It was the only voir dire you've ever seen.

Nicole: Well, no, I can really see how tricky it is to pick a jury.

Cass: There's still a couple I'm not very sure of.

Nicole: Well, you'll have them all on Feliciaís side by the time the trial is over. I know it.

Cass: Hey, what happened?

Stacey: Nothing.

Cass: You didnít find Derek?

Stacey: No.

Cass: You didnít hear from him either?

Stacey: No.

Cass: Now are you ready to admit you made a mistake about that man?

Felicia: Ok. All right, I'll take them, and thank you for bringing them back so quickly. I appreciate it.

Felicia: Here it is -- all clean, just like nothing ever happened.

Mitch: Are you all right? Are you ok?

Felicia: Look. It's the dress I wore that night.

Mitch: This dress goes to goodwill. Ok? Why donít you -- why donít you put on something else? Maybe -- how about that?

Felicia: No, no, that's not good. No.

Mitch: Why not? It's very nice.

Felicia: No, it's really not appropriate.

Mitch: Look, it's very nice. There's nothing wrong with looking good and feeling good about yourself.

Felicia: No, it's just that I donít -- I donít think so. No.

Mitch: Well, just try to put it on. The Coryís are waiting on you.

Felicia: Wait a minute, Mitch.

Mitch: I know you donít want to be late.

Felicia: This canít wait. There's something I want to talk to you about. The jury, now that it's in place and the opening statements are starting tomorrow -- I think that you and I have to -- to make some contingency plans.

Mitch: What sort of plans?

Felicia: If they find me guilty, I want a divorce.

Sam: Yeah, hi. Is Lauren there? Yes, this is Sam. Look, I'm really sorry to keep bothering you, but I really need to find -- yeah, I know you donít know where she is, but I thought maybe she'd check in with you. Ok, listen, if you do talk to her, tell her that I will be waiting for her all evening long. Also -- yeah -- also, tell her that I will definitely make it worth her while if she shows up. Right. Thank you.

Ada: Amandaís on an assignment?

Mac: Right.

Rachel: She doesn't want us to worry, but she canít tell us where she is.

Ada: What are you doing about it?

Rachel: Worrying.

Ada: Let me help you.

Mac: Well, when we talked to her, she did sound fine, Ada.

Ada: I donít get it.

Mac: Rachel and I discussed it. You know, Amanda is very ambitious.

Rachel: She's really into this interview, you know. She really wants to get it. It's become an obsession with her.

Mac: She wants to prove to everyone that she's a top-rank investigative reporter.

Rachel: Not everyone. She wants to prove it to us and to Iris, and then there's the Devilbiss Award.

Mac: Yeah, she really wants that thing badly.

Rachel: And Iris keeps telling her that she's close to getting it.

Mac: Now, darling --

Rachel: That's true.

Ada: I thought Amanda was into the "balancing the career and family" number.

Rachel: Well, I think she's discovering how hard that is.

Ada: You ought to know.

Rachel: Me?

Ada: Yeah, you. When you were heavy into your sculpting, I mean, you were holed up in the studio all the time.

Mac: That's true, darling.

Ada: Didnít even come out to eat. I had to bring food to you.

Mac: Didnít know who I was half the time.

Rachel: Well, what are you saying, that Amanda is obsessive because of me?

Mac: Well, I hate to have you find out, but I guess it's all your fault, sweetheart.

Rachel: You're not going to defend me?

Ada: I know obsessive when I see it.

Rachel: Ok, ok, it's my fault, but I still miss her.

Mac: We want her home.

Ada: She'll be home soon, with any luck.

Stacey: Just because he hasn't called doesn't mean that he wonít.

Cass: Stacey, the trial starts tomorrow.

Stacey: You donít think I know that?

Cass: If you donít hear from him soon --

Stacey: Cass, we wouldnít be having this problem if you didnít come rushing in like old Dick Tracy.

Nicole: Guys --

Cass: Donít be so naive! If I hadn't shown up, we wouldnít even have the gun.

Stacey: If you hadn't showed up, he would've signed his statement.

Cass: He never intended to help us on his own.

Stacey: How do you know that?

Cass: Because of what he did to Felicia.

Stacey: He never meant to cause her any harm.

Cass: Then why would he refuse to testify?

Stacey: Because of people like you who wouldnít believe him.

Cass: People like me are going to be on that jury! I know! I just put them there! I  can only deal with what I can count on, Stacey.

Nicole: Stacey, Cass has been working so hard.

Stacey: Ok. All right, so, tell me about tomorrow. How do you think it's going to go?

Cass: I really donít know. But one thing's certain -- with or without Derek, I've got to build a defense.

Stacey: You're going to be terrific.

Cass: I'd be better if I had Derek waiting in the wings for us. But I donít. I think we have to assume that we lost him.

Stacey: Yeah, I know. And I'm sorry, Cass.

Cass: We both have to take the rap for this one, I think. He's gone, we blew it, and unfortunately the one who's suffering is Felicia.

Mitch: A divorce? You know that's crazy.

Felicia: We have to prepare for what might happen.

Mitch: What are you talking about?

Felicia: I am on trial for murder, Mitch.

Mitch: Yes, and you're going to be found innocent.

Felicia: You donít know that.

Mitch: Look, Cass has other evidence. There's the other --

Felicia: You know, I am so tired of evidence and witnesses. It all adds up to really nothing, doesn't it?

Mitch: Come on, what kind of attitude is that?

Felicia: I am really trying to be realistic here!

Mitch: Why not optimistic? Why donít you try to be positive?

Felicia: Please donít give me another pep talk! Please!

Mitch: I'm not giving any pep talks; I'm just telling you Cass is going to prove that you didnít kill Jason.

Felicia: And what if he canít? Oh, God.

Mitch: Look, we are not talking about "what ifs."

Felicia: I have to. Donít you see that? I just -- I canít ignore what might happen to me if -- honey, I have to think about how all of this is going to affect you.

Mitch: Let me worry about how things are going to affect me, ok?

Felicia: Please, canít you just listen to me just this once?

Mitch: No, no. No, you listen to me. Look, I'm your husband. I married you for better or for worse. Do you understand that?

Felicia: You donít know how you're going to feel if --

Mitch: If what? What, if by some chance you have to go to jail? I'll tell you how I'm going to feel. I'm going to love you more than anything in the world. And I'll wait on you.

Felicia: For how long?

Mitch: For as long as it takes.

Felicia: Mitch.

Mitch: Look, I know what it's like. I know what it's like to be without someone. I'm your husband. What, do you think you're going to be able to stop me?

Felicia: I donít know.

Mitch: It's not going to happen. You're going to be proven innocent, and we're going to be together.

Felicia: I do love you.

Mitch: Everything is going to be fine. I'm telling you we're going to be together.

Donna: I've missed him so much.

Iris: I'm sure.

Donna: We loathe being apart.

Iris: Surely, you must be used to it.

Donna: No, never.

Iris: Michael travels such a lot from what I gather.

Donna: That doesn't make it any easier. We hate to be apart, even for a short period of time.

Iris: Then why donít you go with him?

Donna: I thought about it, Iris.

Iris: Or weren't you invited?

Donna: Of course I was invited. I chose to stay home and take care of our little boy. I wouldnít dream of leaving him alone with a housekeeper until he's older.

Iris: I understand perfectly.

Donna: Do you?

Iris: Oh, yes. Yes, we all have to make sacrifices for our children, even if it is at the expense of our marriage.

Donna: This isnít easy on Michael. He hates to be away from little Michael and me, even for a few days.

Iris: Yes, he does seem to be very devoted to the children.

Donna: Even before little Michael was in our lives, he used to call me every day, sometimes twice a day, just to tell me how much he loved me.

Iris: Oh. And this time?

Donna: The phone never stopped ringing.

Iris: My, my, how does that man ever get any work done, all those overseas telephone calls?

Donna: He calls me from the hotel room late at night. He says he canít sleep. He has to imagine me lying next to him in bed.

Iris: Oh. And did he tell you that he called me from France?

Donna: No. Never mentioned your name.

Iris: It was so wonderful hearing from him.

Donna: We only discuss important things during those phone calls.

Iris: It made me feel really cared for.

Donna: Well, Michaelís very good at that. Even when he dislikes people intensely, he's always polite and friendly. That's why he's such a good businessman.

Iris: Donna, this was not a business call.

Donna: You know, Iris, Michael has met many, many women during his travels, especially when he and I were apart. And of course he had numerous meaningless affairs -- purely physical. Those were the kind of affairs that he had to escape. Helped him to deal with the pain of losing me.

Iris: You know, he never seemed to be in any pain when he was with me.

Donna: He's very good at hiding his emotions.

Iris: Well, he certainly did a good job with you, didnít he?

Donna: He didnít keep anything from me.

Iris: Except me.

Donna: I'm sure it slipped his mind.

Iris: Listen, if you think it was just a little fling between Michael and myself --

Donna: It was. Michael never would've settled down with you, not till he found me again. Michael always had me in his heart.

Iris: Oh. Really?

Donna: Always.

Iris: Always, huh? Then why did he give me an engagement ring?

Donna: You're lying.

Iris: Oh, no. It was a beautiful ring.

Donna: I donít believe it.

Iris: And I treasure it so much. I really do.

Donna: Where is this engagement ring?

Iris: Donít worry, it's in a very safe place.

Donna: Why donít you wear it?

Iris: Oh, I'm -- I'm waiting for the right time. You know, I remember when Michael gave it to me. I -- I was so surprised.

Donna: You're telling me that you and you Michael were engaged?

Iris: That's usually what a diamond ring signifies, isnít it?

Donna: Then what happened?

Iris: Well, Donna, that really isnít any of your concern.

Donna: Iris, why were you holding all this back from me? You certainly seem to have been enjoying telling me everything else about you and my husband.

Iris: Just relax, Donna. Things have a way of working out for the best.

Donna: Donít walk away from me.

Iris: And, you know, I have to get back to work. You had better go and get that mud pack on.

Donna: I'm not finished talking yet, Iris.

Iris: You know, that mud pack will make such a difference to that face. Michael probably wonít even recognize you.

Ada: I was turned down for a jury once.

Rachel: Why?

Ada: Who knows? The lawyer took one look at me and passed. I felt very rejected.

Cass: Well, it all depends on your client. I mean, you want somebody who's going to be good for your guy, on your guy's side.

Mac: Well, who wouldnít be on Feliciaís side?

Ada: Couldn't have said that better myself.

Cass: Gee, I wish we had you all on our jury. The D.A. was trying to pack the jury with --

Rachel: Hi.

Felicia: Are you talking about my jury?

Mac: Hello, Felicia.

Cass: Hi, honey.

Mac: Welcome, dear.

Felicia: Hi. I'm sorry we're late.

Mac: Doesn't matter at all. Mitch.

Ada: We haven't even put out the hors d'oeuvres yet.

Felicia: Well, I see you put out those.

Mac: Yes. Cass, would you do the honors?

Cass: Yes, of course. Here, honey.

Felicia: I'm not the only one drinking here, am I, gang?

Mac: No, of course not.

Cass: No.

Felicia: Take one, too, counselor.

Mac: Thank you.

Felicia: I think you deserve one after the day you just spent.

Ada: Cass has been telling us all about it.

Cass: Actually, I was pretty happy with our selections. In fact, I was very happy.

Felicia: Did he tell you about the baker?

Rachel: No.

Felicia: Oh, actually, he wasn't a baker. He was an icer. He put cream into cannoli. I gained four pounds just listening to his job description.

[Laughter]

Felicia: And then, of course, there was the manicurist. I'm going to have to make sure that my nails are perfect for that day.

Cass: They had such a difficult time trying to find someone who hadn't read a novel by Felicia Gallant that the D.A. was going absolutely nuts.

Felicia: Is that good or bad?

Rachel: It's good for sales.

Felicia: Right.

Mitch: Can we talk?

Cass: Sure. What's up?

Mitch: Well, that's what I would like to know. Felicia said that you had gotten back a report.

Cass: Which report?

Mitch: From ballistics about the bullet that was found in the carousel horse.

Cass: Yeah, right.

Mitch: Well, Cass, that's it. She thinks that this might work for her advantage.

Cass: It might.

Mitch: Look, Cass, that's not good enough.

Cass: What are you going after, Mitch?

Mitch: What I'm going after? Just level with me. What are her chances?

Sam: Lauren?

Lauren: That's me.

Sam: Yeah, I've been waiting for you.

Lauren: So I heard. You called 20,000 times, Jennifer said.

Sam: Yeah. She was very patient.

Lauren: Well, she's used to it. So, you're Sam?

Sam: Yeah, that's right, I am.

Lauren: And you saw my tape at video match?

Sam: As a matter of fact, I watched it twice.

Lauren: Well, that's flattering.

Sam: Please, come in.

Lauren: Thank you. Interesting place.

Sam: Can I get you something, something to drink?

Lauren: Maybe in a few minutes. Is this your kid?

Sam: No, no. I'm babysitting for a friend. He works nights.

Lauren: I have a real thing for babies. God, is she beautiful.

Sam: Thanks. Yeah, I mean, she sure is. Her mom's real pretty, too.

Lauren: One of these days I'm going to have kids, lots of them, I hope. I guess I should be quiet, huh? We donít to wake her.

Sam: So, do you have a career?

Lauren: Not yet. Well, I'm studying psych at Bay City U., but between school and dating, I donít really have much time for anything else.

Sam: Right.

Lauren: You're very attractive.

Sam: Really?

Lauren: I bet you haven't heard that before, right?

Sam: Not very often.

Lauren: Very attractive.

Sam: Are you surprised?

Lauren: Well, yes, actually, I am.

Sam: Why?

Lauren: Well, when a guy is as desperate for a date as you seem to be --

Sam: Yeah, he usually is a loser.

Lauren: Yes, nine times out of 10.

Sam: Well, isnít it nice to know that even attractive guys can get desperate at times?

Lauren: Come here, desperate. Sit.

Sam: Uh -- look, are you sure you donít want that drink?

Lauren: What are you so nervous about?

Sam: I'm not nervous.

Lauren: I love it! I finally come over, and you go to pieces. You make all these phone calls, and then you canít handle it.

Sam: Look, I'm fine. I can handle this.

Lauren: Then how come you're all flushed?

Sam: Well, I'm excited.

Lauren: Good. I like excited.

Sam: Well, actually, it's because I really wanted to go out with you.

Lauren: Yeah, well, that's nice, but why me? I mean, not that I'm not glad.

Sam: It's because --

Lauren: What? Come on, you can tell me. Was it because of my hair or my lips or my --

Sam: Actually, it's because we have a mutual friend.

Lauren: What?

Sam: His name is Dustin Trent and he's dropped out of sight. I need to find out where he is. This is very important. Can you help me?

Felicia: Actually, it sort of reminded me of "night court," only it wasn't nearly that funny, and I'm certainly glad that the judge isnít Harry Anderson. Although, I could maybe use Harry Anderson. This guy --

Cass: I feel confident, Mitch.

Mitch: Why?

Cass: We have a pretty solid defense.

Mitch: Based on?

Cass: Evidence.

Mitch: What, just the bullet?

Cass: No, not only that.

Mitch: Well, what else?

Cass: Look, the original police ballistics report proves that the gun that was found next to Felicia was the one that actually killed Jason Frame, right?

Mitch: Right.

Cass: And since the gloves that Felicia was wearing had powder burns, the cops also naturally assumed that she was the one that fired that gun.

Mitch: Cass, that's where they assumed wrong.

Cass: Of course they assumed wrong. She didnít fire that gun. It was a second derringer that she fired --

Mitch: Ok --

Cass: The one that Derek took.

Mitch: How do you prove that?

Cass: Well, Felicia fired the gun and then she passed out. Now, Derek told Stacey that he picked up the gun and took it with him in order to protect Felicia.

Mitch: Ok, ok, go on.

Cass: And then when Derek ran off, someone else appeared on the scene and deliberately planted the gun that actually did kill Jason.

Mitch: So the "someone else" is the killer.

Cass: The one who struggled with Jason Frame and then shot him dead.

Mitch: Ok, so what about, I mean, Derek? As a witness, you've got to have his testimony.

Cass: I'm not going to lie to you, Mitch.

Mitch: Well, without him, you donít have anything.

Cass: No, no, it's not that bad. I'm going to push like hell for reasonable doubt.

Mitch: And that's enough?

Cass: It would certainly help us a lot considerably if we did have this guy to count on.

Mitch: You've got to.

Cass: We're still trying to find him, Mitch.

Mitch: Come on, Cass, trying is not enough. You've got to find him.

Felicia: And when Cass questioned her, all she could do was blush and giggle. It was so embarrassing.

Rachel: Oh, my gosh.

Singers: Cherish is the word I use to describe all the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside

(Whimsical music playing)

Derek: Quiet.

Stacey: Why did you do that?

Derek: I didnít want you to scream.

Stacey: What? There's other ways of getting people not to scream. You scared me half to death! Where have you been? I've been trying to reach you for days. I left you a note.

Derek: I know.

Stacey: You got it? Why didnít you try to get in touch with me?

Derek: You lied to me.

Stacey: No. I didnít know that --

Derek: I donít want to hear your excuses.

Stacey: Please, just let me explain.

Derek: I donít believe anything you say.

Stacey: Then why did you come here tonight? Look, I didnít know that he was going to follow me. I was as surprised as you were. I was furious with him. I swear that's the truth.

Derek: Ok.

Stacey: You believe me?

Derek: I was ready to sign that paper.

Stacey: The statement. I know.

Derek: Then why did your brother come after me?

Stacey: He doesn't know you. He doesn't understand why you've done some of the things that you've done. To be perfectly honest, I donít either.

Derek: What things?

Stacey: He's Feliciaís best friend, and he doesn't understand why you called her and why you left her those things.

Derek: Doesn't matter.

Stacey: It matters.

Derek: No.

Stacey: Everything matters. Like why you wouldnít tell me your last name, why you donít explain your relationship with Felicia.

Derek: Fanny knows.

Stacey: No. We've asked her about you, and she's tried to remember but she doesnít.

Derek: She doesn't?

Stacey: Derek, you frightened her.

Derek: I didnít mean to frighten Fanny, just warn her.

Stacey: Warn her about what? First, I donít understand why you played that song "Cherish" when you know it upsets her. Why did you have her meet you at a church? And why this? She had a horrible fight with her stepfather over this book. I know you say that you just want to be helpful, but I'm sorry. It just seems cruel.

Iris: Let me see. Oh, they did a wonderful job, wonderful.

Donna: May I please have my purse?

Iris: Certainly. Here we are. It's all there. Oh, Donna, did I tell you I spoke to your son-in-law the other night?

Donna: So?

Iris: Well, didnít he tell you?

Donna: I'm sure he didnít think it was worth mentioning.

Iris: Actually, we got along rather well together.

Donna: I'm surprised. Jamieís usually a very good judge of character.

Iris: It wasn't Jamie. It was Jake. You know, I donít understand -- well, you know, he doesn't seem to have a very high opinion of you, does he?

Donna: What did you talk about?

Iris: Family.

Donna: Marley? Victoria?

Iris: I just canít seem to remember the details. I'd better get closed up. Oh, by the way -- donít forget our aerobic classes every morning at 10:00 A.M. Those extra inches will simply fade away!

Donna: How much does she know?

Lauren: Come on. I donít want to talk about Dustin.

Sam: Look, I need to find where he is.

Lauren: Look, there's so many more fun things we can be --

Sam: I really have to find out where he is.

Lauren: Hey, what is your problem?

Sam: Look, this is important.

Lauren: Well, it's not to me. I'm leaving.

Sam: Please wait a second, wait a second.

Lauren: No! I did not come here to be cross-examined!

Sam: Look, this is just one --

Lauren: You owe me money.

Sam: My girlfriend is missing.

Lauren: What?

Sam: My girlfriend, Amanda -- look, she might've run off with this guy.

Lauren: Amanda?

Sam: So you know her?

Lauren: She's that rich, preppy-type blond about this high. Yes, I've met her.

Sam: Yeah, that's right. Look, when have you seen her last? Was it lately?

Lauren: She didnít tell me she had a boyfriend.

Sam: She's missing.

Lauren: Since when?

Sam: Since last Friday.

Lauren: That's only a few days.

Sam: Well, I know that, but she just wouldnít have dropped out of sight. That's why I have to find out where she is.

Lauren: Some of us just canít take the pressure.

Sam: What do you mean?

Lauren: Well, this kind of life -- I mean, it does get pretty intense.

Sam: Right. Look, I do understand.

Lauren: Maybe she just needed to get away from it all.

Sam: Do you have any idea where she would've gone?

Lauren: Well, she couldn't have been with Dustin. I was with him last Friday.

Sam: You were?

Lauren: Yeah. I mean, hey, relax. I'm sure your girlfriend will show up one of these days. Now, pay up -- unless you want to start enjoying this evening?

Sam: No, I've got the money right here.

Lauren: Too bad.

Sam: There's a lot more where that came from. Just help me find Amanda.

Mitch: No, she's fine. She's going to be all right. She just needed a minute by herself. You all have been terrific.

Rachel: I wish there was something more we could do.

Mitch: Well, you've done a lot. You've been very supportive. You're like a family to her.

Rachel: Well, if there's anything else you all need --

Mitch: Thank you. It's very strange.

Rachel: What?

Mitch: Jason Frame -- every time my life gets turned upside down, it's because of the Frames.

Iris: Hi. I thought this was supposed to be a party.

Rachel: Yes, a private party.

Iris: Oh, I suppose I should've called first.

Rachel: Yes, you should've.

Iris: Sorry. Hello, Mitch. Where's Felicia?

Mitch: I'll tell her you're asking about her.

Iris: Yes, please do that. Daddy.

Mac: Hello, darling.

Donna: Hi, Rachel. I hope you donít mind my barging in like this.

Rachel: Mind?

Donna: Yes, Nicole told me about the party for Felicia, and I just wanted to come and wish her good luck.

Rachel: Well, you're too late.

Donna: Oh.

Rachel: She's gone. Sorry.

Iris: Ada, would you mind if I steal daddy away?

Ada: You donít have to steal him, Iris. I'll give him to you.

Iris: It'll just be for a minute.

Ada: Take two. I have a very delicate sauce to construct.

Mac: Something specific, Iris?

Iris: Oh, no, I just wanted to see how Felicia was. But apparently she's already left.

Mac: Yeah, probably for the best.

Iris: How's she holding up?

Mac: Not terribly well. Actually, I'm grateful you came in after she left. That's a scene better avoided.

Iris: Yes, well, I'll try and make it up to her.

Mac: It will take time.

Iris: Oh, there was something I wanted to ask you.

Mac: Ask away.

Iris: Do you know when Evan is getting back from San Francisco?

Mac: Evan didnít go to San Francisco.

Iris: He didnít?

Mac: No, the meeting was canceled while you were away.

Iris: Well, then --

Mac: What?

Iris: Well, why is he still away?

Mac: Well, I really donít know. I had thought that you had sent him out of town.

Iris: No. Why would I do that?

Mac: Well, he does report to you.

Iris: Yes, and --

Mac: And he was in the office until the day that you came back.

Iris: Oh.

Mac: Unless --

Iris: Unless what?

Mac: I wonder if his leaving could have something to do with Amanda.

Iris: Well, do you think it might have something --

Mac: Well, they were working very closely together on this story.

Iris: Yeah, that's true, but I think it's very strange that Evan would go away just before Feliciaís trial.

Mac: Why would Feliciaís trial be important to Evan?

Iris: Oh, my goodness, look at the time. Daddy, I have to go.

Mac: Iris --

Iris: See you later. Bye.

Mac: Donna.

Donna: Hello, Mac.

Mac: I'm sorry, I didnít see you come in.

Donna: Hi. Well, I just wanted to come by and give Felicia a hug for good luck, and apparently I've missed her, so it's hello and goodbye.

Mac: Do you have to run off?

Donna: Oh, yes, I do. I have to go home and make things extra perfect for Michael. He's coming home tomorrow.

Mac: Yes, I know. Actually, I spoke to him by phone. He called me from Munich.

Donna: Oh?

Mac: Yes, he wanted to tell me that he had talked with Iris.

Donna: Really?

Mac: Yes. I asked him as a personal favor to call her in France.

Donna: Oh, you did?

Mac: Yes. I hope it doesn't cause any problems.

Donna: No, no, no. Not at all.

Mac: I do know that it is a delicate situation.

Donna: You do? I mean, you know?

Mac: Yes, Donna. You see, when I wanted to discuss Iris, Michael felt that he shouldnít keep me in the dark any longer about having known her in France, about their relation-- well, their former relationship there. He felt I should know why he was reluctant to call her.

Donna: Did he by any chance say that there was anyone else that knew about this?

Mac: No, no. And, Donna, I would never discuss it with anyone.

Donna: Oh, I know you wouldnít, but perhaps Iris --

Mac: No, she hasn't mentioned one word about it to me or anyone else, far as I know.

Donna: Well, I just saw the two of you over there speaking together and I --

Mac: Oh, no, no, no. That was business.

Donna: Well, I probably shouldnít be so sensitive about it, but --

Mac: Donít worry about that. We were talking about Evan.

Donna: Evan Bates?

Mac: Yes. Apparently, he's taken off for somewhere on an assignment without her knowledge. I think she's probably very upset about it.

Derek: "The sea was here quite quiet. There was no sound of any surf. The moon shone clear, and I thought in my life I had never seen a place so deserted and desolate. But it was dry land, and when at last it grew so shallow I could wade ashore, I cannot tell if I was more tired or more grateful. Both -- tired as I never was before that night, and grateful to God, as I trust I have been often, though never with more cause." Does that seem cruel?

Stacey: You sent her that book because you like it.

Derek: It means a lot to me.

Stacey: There's so much about your relationship with Felicia that I donít understand.

Nicole: Stacey? Stacey, are you there?

Derek: I'll call you.

Stacey: When?

Derek: Trust me.

Iris: Hi. It's me. Listen, have you seen or heard anything from Evan? Because he seems to have disappeared. Look, if he doesn't show up soon, Winthrop's going to start asking questions, getting snoopy, I'll have to go over that story again. No, of course nobody else knows -- well, now that Jasonís gone. No. Nobody else knows that I'm the chief.

Felicia: The new Felicia. I want the old Felicia. I want her back. I want things the way they used to be.
