Vicky: Yes, Jamie, I'm fine. Mikey and Steven are both sound asleep. Yes, I've got it. I'll tell them when they walk in the door -- they do the babysitting next time. Ok. You, too. Bye-bye.

[Knock on door]

Vicky: What are you doing here?

Jake: That's not a very polite way to answer the door, is it?

Vicky: Well, shouldn't you be with Marley? Is she feeling any better?

Jake: Do you care, Vicky?

Vicky: Of course I care, Jake. She's my sister.

Jake: She's a mess, ok?

Vicky: Well, you know, you should have given her that brewer's yeast concoction that you used to give me when I had a hangover.

Jake: You know why she was drunk in the middle of the day, Vicky?

Vicky: Well, it's not my fault.

Jake: She's falling apart! I need to know the truth. Get your coat.

Vicky: What?

Jake: You're going with me to the hospital.

Vicky: Oh, you're out of your mind.

Jake: Yeah, you're right. I might be out of my mind. But we're going to find out if Steven is my son, once and for all.

Sharlene: Can I get you something?

John: I'm fine.

Sharlene: No, you're not.

John: I don't want to talk about it, Sharlene.

Sharlene: John, don't worry about what happened in that courtroom today.

John: Sharlene, as long as I've known you, that's the first time I've ever heard you say something really dumb.

Sharlene: Look, you told me that I wasn't on trial. Well, you aren't either, John.

John: I thought all I was going to do was stand up there and answer some questions. Did you see what Cass did to me?

Sharlene: Cass is desperate. He doesn't have any proof!

John: Proof isn't the problem. Right now everyone in this town thinks that I murdered your brother!

Sharlene: No --

John: And frankly, if I had been sitting where they were sitting, I'm not sure that I would disagree with them!

Stacey: Hey.

Cass: What are you doing here?

Stacey: Well, I knew you'd still be here, so I came by to check on you.

Cass: I still have some notes to go over.

Stacey: How about coming out and having some dinner with me?

Cass: I'm not really very hungry.

Stacey: Zack said you did a terrific job here today.

Cass: Yeah, a regular Perry Mason.

Stacey: He said that if the jury had any reason to believe there was reasonable doubt, now is the time.

Cass: It wasn't very pretty, Stacey. I may have destroyed John Hudson in the process.

Stacey: Yeah, but you're trying to win the case for Felicia.

Cass: Yeah. Any luck tracking down Derek?

Stacey: Oh, it's like he evaporates when I'm not with him.

Cass: Oh, great. My key witness, Mr. Brigadoon.

Stacey: I'm sorry.

Cass: We need him, Stace. I can only go so far without him.

Stacey: I'll find him.

Cass: And if you don't, I'm just going to have to keep putting people up there on the witness stand that look suspicious and hope that the jury buys my story.

Stacey: I know.

Cass: I need Derek! He's the only person in the world who can clear Felicia.

Amanda: Sam? Sam?

Evan: Amanda?

Amanda: Sam?

Evan: It's me. It's Evan, honey. Look at me.

Amanda: Oh. I must have been dreaming.

Evan: How you feeling, huh?

Amanda: I'm tired.

Evan: I know. You slept for a couple hours, but that's good. That's good.

Amanda: Was Dustin here?

Evan: Yeah, he came by earlier, but you were out of it.

Amanda: I hate feeling like this. I feel like I can't get enough sleep.

Evan: Listen, he gave you some antibiotics. You look a little better. But you still got a fever.

Amanda: I know. I can feel it.

Evan: I don't know why he wouldn't let you see the doctor. He knows you're sick. I mean, how can you -- how can you impersonate his wife if you can't even get out of bed? Come here. Come on.

Amanda: It's only two more days.

Evan: No, it's one more day. You lost a day.

Amanda: Hmm? What?

Evan: Yeah, he's foaming at the mouth about this money.

Amanda: I trusted him.

Evan: I know you did.

Amanda: I'm such an idiot, thinking that he wanted to help me with my story.

Evan: No, no. He had to be really convincing because he had you to believe him.

Amanda: Oh, it's so sick. He sees me, I remind him of his wife, and he goes through all of this just to get her money.

Evan: No. I think it's for more than the money.

Amanda: What, are you saying that you understand him?

Evan: No. But I know what it's like to be hurt. And I know how your mind starts thinking things that you never would have dreamed of before.

Amanda: Even if it involves hurting innocent people?

Evan: Yeah, that's a little hard to explain.

Amanda: Try.

Evan: Amanda, there's something I really have to tell you.

John: Look, Cass knew exactly what he was doing. He knew which questions to ask, what buttons to push. And he knew that he could get me to lose my temper so he would have his textbook example of a stressed-out vet who can't control himself.

Sharlene: Well, who wouldn't have reacted the way you did? You were outraged. So was most of the courtroom, John.

John: He was really brilliant, you know? First he gets me to admit that Jason and I had problems all along. And then he brings up you and how Jason felt about us. And then, after he's laid all the groundwork, he brings up Jasonís military past. He knew that would get a rise out of me because, after all, I'm a vet. Vets hate traitors, especially vets who have bad memories and suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder. Well, they don't have a handle on their emotions! Well, hell, they're liable to go out and kill again, just like they did in Vietnam!

Sharlene: Come on, John, nobody's going to believe that, and you know it!

John: I came across like Americaís worst nightmare. I'm the crazed vet willing to go out and terrorize the community, the one who thinks he's in Vietnam anytime anything upsets him!

Sharlene: Don't talk like -- come on, John, donít.

John: I just want you to realize what you're getting yourself into because people are going to start questioning your judgment now.

Sharlene: About what?

John: Oh, they're going to wonder what a fine woman like you is doing with a psychopath for a boyfriend.

Sharlene: Well, let them wonder! I know who you are!

John: No, don't be naive, Sharlene! What happened to me happened to you, too! Look, this kind of thing sells an awful lot of newspapers, you know that? I mean, "Vietnam vet murders girlfriend's brother."

Sharlene: No -- stop it, John. Stop it!

John: That's what people are going to think, Sharlene! Now, can you live with that?

Jake: Here.

Vicky: We can't go anywhere now. Nobody else is here.

Jake: We're going to need Steven for the paternity test. Get him ready.

Vicky: Mikey's upstairs, too, you know.

Jake: Get someone to baby-sit him.

Vicky: I think it's time you go.

Jake: I donít.

Vicky: You want me to walk into the hospital with you this time of night and have a blood test?

Jake: You're not going to put this off, Vicky.

Vicky: Oh, I can't believe this is happening to me.

Jake: That's all that matters to you, isn't it? "Me -- what happens to me?"

Vicky: Oh, you're being so noble. You plan to throw away your marriage and ruin mine, too.

Jake: Marley will get over this, I know that. She'll want Steven in her life because he's half mine. She needs to be the mother of my child.

Vicky: The mother?

Jake: I tried to do this your way, Vicky. I canít.

Vicky: Well, then you're the one that's being selfish.

Jake: I am doing this for Marley.

Vicky: Oh, right. You're going to tell Marley that you slept with her sister and had her baby because you love her so much?

Jake: I have a right to know if Steven is my son.

Vicky: Even if he is yours, you think you can just have him?

Jake: I didn't say that yet.

Vicky: Yet.

Jake: I have plenty of time to make that decision.

Vicky: You want to take my baby away from me?

Jake: You want everything, Vicky! You want the big house, you want the rich doctor as your husband, you want the beautiful little baby and the designer crib! And Marley and myself -- we're supposed to get what's left!

Vicky: All right! Right! I do have a wonderful husband who loves me, and I do have a beautiful baby! Everything that I used to dream of having once upon a time with you. But now I do have the things I want, and you cannot take it away from me, Jake.

Jake: I'm going to have the test, Vicky.

Vicky: If you so much as mention --

Jake: Oh, don't even try to threaten me.

Vicky: What choice have I got?

Jake: There's nothing you can do to stop me, Vicky. I'm willing to tell Marley. I'll take that risk.

Vicky: You think Marley can live with the fact that you raped me? I mean it, Jake! If you mention any of this to anybody about being the father of my baby, I will tell everybody that you forced yourself on me last summer.

Stacey: I just wish I could find him and get him to sign the statement.

Cass: That wouldn't work now.

Stacey: Yeah, but I thought you said that if I --

Cass: Morgan would run a check on his name, just like you did. She would find that there's no record of his existence. She would accuse me of fabricating the whole statement, and I wouldn't be able to prove her wrong.

Stacey: Oh, you're right.

Cass: We need him to testify. Morgan isn't going to admit to anything if she can't cross-examine.

Stacey: I just wish I could figure out what it is that he's afraid of.

Cass: You have to find him first.

Stacey: Cass, why does a guy live like that? I mean, what could he be hiding?

Cass: I keep wondering something.

Stacey: What?

Cass: What if he's the key to Feliciaís past, and Noahís?

Felicia: Oh, you know, spring stars -- they always seem much brighter, don't they? You know, when I was a kid, Lucas and I used to go up to the roof and we'd just sit and stare at the stars.

Mitch: And what else?

Felicia: We went to the park, too. Oh, it wasn't as beautiful as this park, but we thought it was. We'd take a blanket and picnic basket, and we'd have a little picnic. And we'd -- we'd watch the sunset and stare up at all the stars. No one ever knew we did that. Not even Noah.

Mitch: That sounds very nice.

Felicia: It was. You know, there's nothing quite like standing outside on a clear spring night with the one person that you care more about than anybody in the whole world. It makes you feel alive and powerful somehow. It's like nobody -- nobody can ever take that -- that certain feeling away that you have right at that -- that very special moment.

Mitch: Things went better today at the trial, don't you think?

Felicia: I hated what happened to John.

Mitch: Cass did what he had to do, and he was doing it because it was for you.

Felicia: I know that. John was so hurt. And when you think about it, the D.A. still has the gun and has my gloves, and it really all adds up just to me, doesn't it?

Mitch: There's still a second gun. There is another bullet.

Felicia: Honey, without a witness, we really don't have much. If this Derek person -- if he doesn't come forward -- well, I don't know.

Mitch: Stacey's going to find him. It's going to work out, I promise you.

Felicia: Mitch --

Mitch: Yeah?

Felicia: Now I know I -- I never really appreciated doing something like this, how much it really means to me -- standing in a park with my husband, staring up at the stars. If I -- if I can't do that, if they lock me up --

Mitch: It's not going to happen.

Felicia: You never really appreciate something until you know you could lose it. I wonder why that is. Do you know?

Mitch: You've always appreciated what you have.

Felicia: God, you are so wonderful to me.

Mitch: That's because I love you. I like to see you happy, that's all.

Felicia: Let's go home. Ok? Come on.

Derek: It's me. Meet me in the park across from the courthouse tomorrow morning at 8:00. And bring the statement.

Amanda: Sorry. I just really felt funny all of a sudden.

Evan: Listen, you're tired. Why don't you rest?

Amanda: You said you had something to tell me.

Evan: I'll tell you later. You're too tired.

Amanda: No. No, really. Please, I feel much better now.

Evan: It's a long story.

Amanda: Go on.

Evan: Well, what I was trying to tell you earlier was, I know what it's like when your emotions take over your sense of reason.

Amanda: Like Dustin.

Evan: Yeah, what he's doing to us -- it makes sense to him because he can't get over the fact that he was betrayed by his wife. I know what that's like in a -- it's a different way because I had someone taken from me.

Amanda: Someone?

Evan: Yeah, she was killed. And ever since that day, I've hated the person that did it. I mean, nothing else mattered to me. I didn't care who got hurt. I did every just devious thing that I could think of to get close to her. I mean, I insinuated myself in her life, lied to her, took advantage of her trust, just used her. I took advantage of her family's support. What I'm trying to tell you, Amanda, is that --

[Door opens]

Dustin: How is she?

Evan: Shh, shh. Quiet. She's not feeling too well. You have to leave her alone. She needs her rest.

Dustin: She has to prepare.

Evan: She canít. She can't even get out of bed.

Dustin: Julia's father is coming tomorrow.

Evan: Shh. Well, if you get a doctor, we can go on with this thing.

Dustin: I gave her antibiotics. Aren't they working?

Evan: Look, she's still weak.

Dustin: She's got to get ready.

Evan: Dustin, what if she can't do this? What if in the middle of this whole charade she just collapses? What's going to happen then?

Dustin: Then we all lose, don't we?

Sharlene: You can't think that you're looked at any more critically because you're a vet.

John: People are always suspicious of us, Sharlene. That's a fact.

Sharlene: Well, I hate seeing you like this.

John: Like what?

Sharlene: You look so defeated.

John: I find this whole thing so amazing. I kept everything under wraps for almost 20 years, and then -- then I finally face what happened to me in Vietnam so that I could get on with my life. And it only takes a matter of weeks before I'm dragged in front of the criminal justice system that tells me that my memories were so traumatic, I don't have control over what I do.

Sharlene: Come on, John, this posttraumatic stress syndrome is nothing to be ashamed of.

John: You know, Sharlene, that's another thing. I mean, some shrink gives a fancy name to my nightmares, and all of a sudden everyone thinks that I belong in an institution.

Sharlene: Hey, you. You've come too far to give up.

John: Oh, don't worry about me. I've paid my dues. No one's going to make me out to be a murderer. I've worked too damned hard to get where I am.

Sharlene: I'm glad to hear that.

John: I really don't want to talk about this anymore.

Sharlene: Ok.

John: I'd better get going.

Sharlene: Why don't you -- why don't you stay here tonight?

John: Why?

Sharlene: "Why"?

John: That's what I said -- why?

Sharlene: Because I'd like you to. I don't want you to be alone tonight. I'll get some blankets and a pillow.

John: Better get that blanket.

Jake: That's just like you, huh, Vicky? You're going to tell everybody I raped you?

Vicky: Jake, why don't you just drop this whole paternity thing? I won't have to say things about you, and then we can just go back to living our lives.

Jake: No, Vick, you can go back to living your life. You have everything. I don't have a blessed thing left.

Vicky: You have Marley.

Jake: Not for long.

Vicky: What?

Jake: Every time she looks at me, Vicky, she thinks about everything that she doesn't have.

Vicky: Oh, Jake, you're not making sense. You see, the one thing that you're planning is going to be the one thing that will make you lose her.

Jake: We are talking about my baby.

Vicky: Oh, you don't know that yet.

Jake: No, but I will.

Vicky: Why do you want to cause trouble?

Jake: I've made up my mind, Vicky.

Vicky: Fine. You know where I stand.

Jake: Let me ask you a question -- who do you think is going to believe you, huh?

Vicky: Oh, Jamie, for starters, and my parents.

Jake: Nobody in this whole town trusts you, Vicky. They just put up with you. You come up with this lie about me raping you, they're going to laugh at you, Vicky. Everybody's going to laugh at you. The Cory's are going to laugh at you. Hell, probably even Jamie will laugh at you.

Vicky: Stop it!

Jake: Truth hurts, doesn't it? Of course, maybe you don't know too much about the truth since you spend so much of your time living a lie.

Vicky: You want to take my baby away from me? Well, I won't let you!

Jake: Let me ask you another question -- what do you think the judge is going to say when he finds out you knew the baby was mine all along, huh?

Vicky: What judge?

Jake: Hey, Vick, Steven is mine. I have as much legal right to him as you do, don't I?

Vicky: It would kill me to lose my son. You wouldn't stoop that low.

Jake: I wouldn't stoop that low? You're the one that's going to tell everybody I raped you, and we both know that's about as far away from the truth as you can get, huh, Vick?

Vicky: Please don't do it. I'm begging you. Please?

Jake: I'm going to go on that stand tomorrow at Feliciaís trial in the morning. Cass suspects something, we both know that. If he asks me why Jason was after you, I'm going to tell him the truth.

Vicky: You're bluffing. You don't have the guts.

Jake: You just think about it.

Amanda: Evan?

Evan: Amanda, you ok?

Amanda: Was that Dustin?

Evan: Yeah, he said Juliaís father is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, on schedule.

Amanda: Well, at least we know that after tomorrow, we'll be out of here. I am going to be Julia.

Evan: Yeah.

Amanda: Believe me, if it means that I get to see Sam and my baby again, I'll be Lady Macbeth if I have to. Maybe I should try to eat something. An aspirin will take the fever down. What is it? Evan?

Evan: It's nothing.

Amanda: You look like you were going to say something. You know something. What is it?

Evan: What I was going to say to you earlier -- I just -- well, I realized how sick you are. That's why.

Amanda: Tell me now.

Evan: I think Juliaís dead.

Amanda: What?

Evan: I think Dustin killed her.

Amanda: Does he know that you know that?

Evan: I don't know, maybe.

Amanda: Evan, if he did kill her and he knows that you know, what's going to happen to us when this is over?

Derek: Glad you came alone.

Stacey: Hi. I have the statement.

Derek: Let me see it.

Stacey: I was so relieved when I got your message last night. You have no idea how crucial your testimony is going to be to Feliciaís case.

Derek: Now, I said I'd sign a statement. That's all.

Stacey: This is pretty straightforward. It says that you were there the night Jason frame was killed and that --

Derek: I can read.

Stacey: I just thought if you had any questions at all --

Derek: I need a pen.

Stacey: Here you go.

Stacey: You have no idea how important this is to me. It's even more important to Felicia. "Derek Dane."

Derek: Yeah, I told you before, I'd do anything for Fanny.

Stacey: Yeah -- this isn't going to be enough.

Singer: Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste I've been around for a long, long year stole many a man's soul and faith I was around when Jesus Christ had his moment of doubt and pain made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate pleased to meet you hope you guess my name but what's puzzling you is the nature of my game stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was a time for a change killed the czar and his ministers Anastasia screamed in vain I rode a tank held a general's rank when the blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank pleased to meet you hope you guess my name oh, yeah ah, what's puzzling you is the nature of my game oh, yeah I watched with glee while your kings and queens fought for 10 decades for the Gods they made I shouted out, "who killed the Kennedyís?" When after all it was you and me let me please introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste and I laid traps for troubadours who get killed before they reach Bombay pleased to meet you

Dustin: Julia, your father is here.

Man: I was just getting to the good part,

Amanda: Father. How have you been?

Man: Julia. Oh, my dear, I -- I can't believe it's you.

Amanda: You can't?

Man: No, no, it's just that it's been so long and my eyes are not what they used to be. Oh, Julia, why -- why have we waited so long?

Amanda: Well, we're together now. That's all that really matters.

Dustin: Why don't we sit down?

Man: Yes.

Amanda: Yes.

Dustin: He looks wonderful, doesn't he, Julia?

Amanda: Yes, yes, you do, Father. So, have you heard from Aunt Ina?

Man: Oh, yes. She's -- she's still in Lucerne.

Amanda: I miss her so much.

Man: Oh, she always talks about you, Julia. You know, that mess with your mother -- it's so unfortunate, it --

Amanda: Yes. Well, I've decided that I'm going to fly down to Lucerne and see her sometime.

Man: Well, I gather from your letters that you wouldn't visit me because you hate to fly.

Amanda: Oh, yes, I -- I do. But I've decided that that's not going to keep me from traveling the world. I just don't like planes very much, that's all.

Man: Still a bit of scary cat, eh?

Amanda: Do you remember when I got thrown from Colinís horse?

Man: Oh, yes!

Amanda: What was its name?

Man: Dynamo!

Amanda: Yeah.

Man: I don't know why your mother ever let you get on that horse.

Amanda: Well, she didn't know, not until he threw me down an embankment --

Man: Hmm.

Amanda: And broke my collar bone.

Man: Yes.

Amanda: Did I ever tell you that story, Dustin?

Dustin: No, you never did, dear.

Amanda: Are you sure?

Dustin: Yes, dear, I'm sure.

Amanda: Daddy, Dustin never remembers anything that I tell him. He's just awful.

Man: Well, I think Dustin is a wonderful husband.

Dustin: Well, thank you, sir.

Man: Oh, yes, I mean it. He's obviously very devoted to you, Julia, and you should be grateful having done so well. So many women today end up with the wrong person and that can get -- oh -- very ugly.

Amanda: Yes. Yes, I know what you mean.

Man: And that's why giving this to you gives me such a great joy because I know that you and Dustin are happily married. And it won't be long before there are some children to share it with you?

Dustin: Soon, we hope. What are those papers, sir?

Man: These, young man, are your future.

Dustin: Sir?

Man: I am signing over the controlling interest in my company to both of you.

Amanda: Both of us?

Dustin: Let him finish, dear.

Man: Oh, I'm sure you'll both have lots of questions, so you can call me or one of my associates about anything at any time.

Dustin: I have many people I can talk to, sir.

Man: I know I can -- that you will do the right thing, Dustin. I feel perfectly safe in entrusting that with you -- or Julia, of course.

Dustin: Of course. After all, it is her inheritance.

Amanda: Thank you, Father.

Man: Oh, don't thank me, my dear. It's -- that stock is your birthright, and it's about time you're able to take advantage of it. This is a very happy day for me.

Dustin: For both of us, too. Right, Julia?

Amanda: Yes, yes. We're very happy.

John: "Went to get groceries."

[Radio turns on]

Singers: Come by here come by here whoa

Radio announcer: It's 9:30. Stay tuned to WBCI for the latest developments in the Felicia Gallant murder trial. Mary Simpson will have a report on the testimony yesterday of Vietnam vet John Hudson.

[Phone rings]

[Ring]

Jake: Marley, honey, this is routine. Stay home. There is no reason for you to be down here, ok? Yes. Yes, I promise everything is going to be fine. Listen, I got to get going.

Reporter: Ms. Watts, was John's testimony --

Jake: I'll give you a call when this is all over, all right?

Cass: Sharlene, I'd like to --

Sharlene: I am not here to see you, Cass.

Felicia: What is she doing?

Cass: I don't really know.

Morgan: How are you, Mrs. Watts?

Sharlene: Well, after what happened here yesterday, I'm not too well.

Morgan: I must say, Mr. Winthrop put on quite a show at John Hudsonís expense.

Sharlene: That's why I'm here.

Morgan: I beg your pardon?

Sharlene: John did not know anything about what my brother did in Vietnam. He was telling the truth.

Morgan: Can you prove that?

Sharlene: Yes, I can.

Morgan: Are you ready to testify?

Sharlene: I'll do anything I have to do to clear John's name. He didn't kill my brother.

Morgan: All right, just a minute. I've got a witness scheduled to testify this morning. If you can wait, I'll bring you up as a rebuttal witness after the cross-examination is through.

Sharlene: That's fine, I'll wait.

Morgan: Terrific.

Sharlene: Could I -- please, let me ask you a question.

Morgan: Sure.

Sharlene: What kind of things will you be asking me?

Bailiff: All rise. Court is now in session. The honorable judge Harrison R. Tinkham presiding.

Judge: Be seated, please.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Ms. Graves, are you ready to call your witness?

Morgan: Yes, I am, your honor. The state calls Jake McKinnon.

[Gallery buzzes]

Bailiff: Do you promise to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?

Jake: I do.

Dustin: Not to worry, Stuart. I'll make sure Julia doesn't spend this all in one place.

Amanda: Oh, now, I wouldn't do anything like that, Dustin.

Stuart: No, not my Julia. She was always very prudent about money. Except for that time with Uncle Cyrus' inheritance. Well, now, don't tell me you don't remember.

Amanda: Well, actually, I --

[Stuart laughs]

Stuart: No wonder she tries to blot it out. She was only 16 years old. That crazy old man left her $5,000 and she spent the whole thing in one day on Fifth Avenue.

Amanda: Oh, but I was much younger then, Father. I wouldn't do something like that now.

Stuart: Oh, I know that, my dear. I'm not scolding you. It's just that, well, it makes me laugh now.

Dustin: Yes, yes. Sir, don't you have a plane to catch at about 12:00 isn't it?

Stuart: Yes, yes, I do.

Dustin: There's a storm on the way. It might be a good idea to get an early start.

Amanda: Father, wait. Do you have to leave so soon?

Dustin: Julia, your father has to catch a plane.

Amanda: Yes, but it's been so long since I've seen him, and we've hardly had a chance to talk.

Stuart: Well, I really must catch that flight, my dear, but I do hope that today is the beginning of a new closeness with us. It would mean so much to me to -- to have you in my life again.

Amanda: Yes, that's what I want, too, Father.

Dustin: Say your goodbyes here, Julia.

Amanda: Why?

Dustin: We have a riding lesson, remember?

Amanda: Yes, but that doesn't mean that I have to rush right off.

Stuart: Oh, no, no, no, darling. Listen, I don't want you to be late.

Amanda: No, Father -- please, you can stay.

Dustin: Julia --

Stuart: But I want to kiss my beautiful daughter goodbye. I'll talk to you soon.

Dustin: Yes. Watch your step, sir.

Amanda: Father, wait!

Stacey: You walk away from me now and you might as well walk out of Feliciaís life, too.

Derek: I signed the statement.

Stacey: This piece of paper means nothing unless I can verify your existence.

Derek: What?

Stacey: I have gone through every file I know looking for a Derek Dane. You do not exist, at least not in the eyes of the law. And the law is the only thing that means something to Felicia right now.

Derek: I'm not a part of your world, ok?

Stacey: Yeah, I remember. But what the hell is that supposed to mean?

Derek: It means that you don't understand me and you never could!

Stacey: But Fanny does. Doesn't she?

Derek: Fanny always knew.

Stacey: I know that you want to help her.

Derek: Use the statement.

Stacey: The D.A.'s office is going to challenge us to prove that you're for real! How do I do that if there's no record of your existence?

Derek: What do you want me to do?

Stacey: I want you to testify.

Jake: I didn't say that.

Cass: But you didn't, did you?

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Really, Mr. Winthrop. You know better than that.

Cass: Sorry, your honor. Are you acquainted with Victoria Hudson Frame?

Jake: Yes.

Cass: What do you know about her relationship to Jason Frame?

Jake: They didn't have a relationship, Cass. He was -- she was suing him.

Cass: So you knew about the lawsuit?

Jake: Everybody in town knew about it.

Cass: And the tension that existed between Mrs. Frame and her husband's uncle?

Jake: Yeah, I was aware of that.

Cass: Aware of what, please?

Jake: Like you said, things were tense between Vicky and Jason.

Cass: When?

Jake: The week before he died.

Cass: And how did this tension manifest itself?

Jake: Jason was always hounding Vicky, you know.

Cass: Harassing her?

Jake: Right.

Cass: Why was he doing that?

Morgan: Objection.

Judge: Sustained.

Cass: I'll rephrase the question, your honor. Do you know what Jason used to threaten Mrs. Frame?

Jake: Yes, I know.

Cass: Would you tell the court, please. Mr. McKinnon? Jake?

Jake: Huh?

Cass: I'll be glad to repeat the question if you like.

Jake: No, I'll tell you. I'll tell you exactly what I know.
