Vicky: What?

Jake: Jamie has to take the genetic paternity test, Vick.

[Vicky laughs]

Vicky: That is impossible.

Jake: It is not impossible. You tell him, he takes the test. It's simple.

Vicky: Jake, I have done everything that you have told me to do up until now. I refuse to tell my husband --

Jake: Either you tell him, Vicky, or I will!

Donna: Yes. Well, we're just having a quiet little anniversary celebration here.

Marley: Oh. Well, I better get going, but I did want to bring you this.

Donna: Oh, thank you.

Marley: Happy anniversary.

Donna: How beautiful. Mmm! This is lovely!

Marley: Well, aren't you going to open it?

Donna: Right now?

Marley: Well, of course. Please do.

Donna: Oh, all right.

Marley: Now, I hope you like it. I'm sure you will. It's just lovely.

Donna: This is beautiful paper. I'm going to have to save this.

Marley: I hope you like the present better than the paper.

Donna: Here. Take this.

Marley: Ok, I'll take this.

Donna: Oh, my goodness! Look at this. Where did you get this?

Marley: Well, I took this photograph right before you went on your honeymoon, and I wanted it to be a surprise for your first anniversary.

Donna: Oh, thank you. That's lovely.

Marley: Oh, you're very welcome. Well, how does it feel celebrating your first anniversary?

Donna: It feels wonderful. We're not making a big deal of it, obviously.

Marley: Not becoming the old romantic couple, everything predictable, are we?

Donna: Oh, no. No, no. Michael still has a few surprises for me every now and again.

[Marley laughs]

Michael: Let's just get this straight, Iris. I am not going to talk to your father about what you did.

Iris: You're the only one he will listen to.

Michael: Look, you betrayed him. Or hasn't that sunk in yet?

Iris: Yeah, I'm sure you despise me.

Michael: No, you donít know what I think.

Iris: I despise myself. I know it was an incredibly stupid thing to do.

Michael: My food's getting cold.

Iris: Michael, I am asking you to help me get back the one thing that I have ever had in my life -- my father's love -- even if you have never loved me. Please, canít you help me?

Michael: Sorry, Iris. I wonít.

Judge: Will the defense please rise to hear the verdict?

Judge: Mr. Foreman, how do you find the defendant, Felicia Gallant?

Foreman: Your honor, we, the jury, find the defendant, Felicia Gallant, guilty as charged.

[Gallery shouts]

[Judge pounds gavel]

Man: I donít believe it! I donít believe it! I donít believe it!

[Gallery shouts]

[Judge pounds gavel]

Mitch: Your honor, they have made a mistake! She didnít do anything --

Derek: Fanny?

Judge: Order! I will have order in this court! I will have silence here, or I will have the spectators removed! Now, then --

Cass: Your honor, I'd like to file notification of appeal.

Judge: You may do that any time you wish, Mr. Winthrop.

Cass: Thank you.

Judge: Now, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, your work was deeply appreciated. I know it wasn't easy. This was a long and difficult case. You are dismissed with the sincere thanks of this court. Sentencing will be later today in closed session. This court stands adjourned.

[Gallery murmurs]

Nicole: Cass, what are you going to do?

Cass: I'm not giving up.

Nicole: But Felicia is innocent.

Cass: I know that.

Nicole: Cass, she canít go to prison. That is wrong. Now, you said that wouldnít happen.

Cass: Just make sure Feliciaís ok. I have to talk to the D.A. before she leaves, all right? Calm down.

Frankie: Congratulations. You're good.

Morgan: Thank you. Thanks for your help.

Cass: Morgan, can I have a minute of your time, please?

Morgan: Sure.

Cass: What's your plan for sentencing?

Morgan: Maximum.

Cass: Morgan, she's innocent.

Morgan: That's not what the jury said, Cass.

Cass: Come on, Morgan. She's not a threat to anybody.

Morgan: She killed a man in cold blood.

Cass: This is crazy. You know she didnít do it.

Morgan: I offered you a deal before the trial. You should have taken it.

Derek: Wait. Wait.

Morgan: What?

Derek: Fanny lied.

Morgan: Who?

Derek: Felicia Gallant -- she lied.

Morgan: Whether she lied or not, the jury's already made its decision.

Derek: Look, I was the strongman. Sorry. I was there that night. I saw it.

Morgan: Excuse me. I have a lot to do.

Derek: It happened just like she said.

Frankie: If you knew, why didnít you testify?

Derek: She lied.

Frankie: You said that already.

Stacey: Derek!

Frankie: Hey, you donít talk too much, do you?

Stacey: Excuse me. Derek --

Frankie: There is something weird about this case.

Stacey: Listen, I want to tell you that I'm sorry about what I said.

Derek: What you said was I was a liar. What you said was I wanted to hurt Fanny.

Frankie: Hey, who is this Derek guy anyway?

Mitch: I love you. You know that.

Felicia: Yes.

Mitch: Now, just remember that.

Felicia: I will. I promise. So, what do you think happens next?

Cass: Well, this isnít the end. We have plenty of options left.

Mac: Absolutely.

Rachel: We'll take it straight to the Supreme Court if we have to.

Felicia: I'm fine. Really, I am fine. I'm going to be all right.

Jamie: Nicole?

Nicole: What? Oh, Jamie, hi.

Jamie: Are you all right?

Nicole: Yeah, I'm fine. Boy, Felicia is sure being brave, isnít she?

Jamie: I know. I canít believe this happened.

Nicole: How could they have done this, Jamie? She's innocent.

Jamie: I know she is. Come on, let's go talk to her.

Mitch: So why does she have to be sentenced today?

Zack: That's the way this judge likes to work. Look, believe me, it's better not to ask for a delay.

Cass: We'll appeal the verdict first thing in the morning, and if I can persuade Felicia to identify Derek, we can ask for a new trial based on new evidence.

Stacey: Oh, but do you think she'll do it?

Mitch: Come on, Cass. You said this wasn't going to happen. You said that she was going to get off.

Zack: Look, Mitch, there are still a lot of strategies that we could --

Mitch: Zack, I've heard enough of strategies, ok? I should have gotten her out of here while I had the chance.

Cass: This isnít helping, Mitch.

Felicia: Darling, please donít do this.

Mitch: Ok.

Felicia: Please.

Rachel: Mitch, can I talk to you for a minute?

Felicia: Thank you. Donít -- donít listen to everything that Mitch is saying. He's very upset right now. He's really upset.

Cass: So am I. So am I.

Felicia: I know.

Mac: What can Rachel and I do? Just name it, Felicia.

Felicia: Thanks, Mac.

Zack: All we can do is an appeal.

Cass: Unless we ask for a new trial.

Stacey: Wait, maybe we can get the court to amend your testimony and then we'll put Derek on the stand and --

Felicia: No, I wonít do that.

Mac: But why not, Felicia?

Zack: If we can get Derek to testify --

Cass: It would free you.

Felicia: I said no.

Mitch: Look, what is it about this guy? Can you tell me that?

Felicia: Honey --

Mitch: What did he do to you?

Felicia: Honey, please donít do this.

Mitch: Ok.

Felicia: Please.

Mitch: Ok.

Cass: Felicia, I have to talk to you in private, please.

Felicia: All right.

Cass: Ok? Come on.

Mac: Mitch?

Cass: Come with me.

Mac: Let's go out to the car.

Mitch: Ok, ok.

Cass: I'm telling you we have a good chance.

Felicia: No, Cass, no.

Cass: It's not as if I'm asking you to identify Derek as the murderer. He didnít shoot Jason.

Felicia: Honey, I canít do it.

Cass: All you'd have to do is say he was there. He'll take care of the rest.

Felicia: Listen to me. I know how you feel right now. Really, I do. It's just that I've made up my mind about this.

Cass: Felicia, Morgan is asking for the maximum sentence.

Felicia: Whoa. Maximum?

Cass: We're talking prison, honey, years of prison.

Nicole: You canít tie Cass' hands.

Felicia: I just canít do it, that's all. Oh, God, honey. I'm -- I'm sorry. I --

Nicole: Oh, Felicia, you have to let him help you.

Felicia: I want him to. You know I do. You believe that. I know you do. I just canít do that. Honey, please try and understand.

Cass: Ok. All right. I have no choice. I have to go in another direction.

Felicia: What?

Cass: I'm just going to have to find the real killer. That's our only hope.

Mitch: You saw what happened in there. Show me somebody that cares about her rights.

Rachel: Cass does. He's not going to give up on her now.

Mitch: Look, all she's been has been film for the 6:00 news.

Stacey: Mitch, we know she got a bad deal, but it's not over.

Mitch: What do you mean, it's not over? She's going to jail. She's not going to make it in there.

Stacey: Cass isnít going to let that happen.

Mitch: No, you donít know what I'm talking about. I'm talking about time, time that doesn't pass when she's surrounded by people that donít care whether she lives or dies.

Rachel: Stop it. We've got to help Felicia now. We've got to help her get through this.

Mac: My feeling is if I can start a publicity campaign now with the next issue of "Brava," I may be able to draw enough attention to make the governor intervene.

Jamie: Would that work?

Mac: Well, it has before.

Zack: I donít know. It's awfully tough to do, Mac. The governor usually wonít interfere until the appeals process is exhausted.

Jamie: And during all these appeals, Felicia stays in jail, right?

Zack: I'm afraid so.

Mac: Well, I donít know what else -- I think it's worth a try.

Mitch: Mac.

Jamie: And it's a good idea.

Mitch: Look, I just wanted to thank you for being here.

Mac: Oh, sure.

Rachel: Mitch thinks we ought to leave.

Mac: But I want Felicia to know that we're here.

Mitch: Well, I think under the circumstances, if she's going to be taken into custody, that she's not with friends, she knows how you feel.

Mac: All right. Well, let us at least do something for you. Let us wait and drive you home.

Mitch: No, I'm fine. I'm fine.

Rachel: Whatever you want.

Mac: Well, if there's anything we can do, anything, will you call us? You promise?

Mitch: I will.

Mac: Ok.

Rachel: Give our love to Felicia.

Zack: Talk to you soon.

Mac: Right.

Mitch: I will.

Mac: Bye-bye.

Stacey: Bye-bye.

Jamie: A pleasure. Bye, Zack.

Zack: Jamie.

Jamie: Bye. You hang in there.

Mitch: Ok, Jamie. I'm going to go back inside.

Zack: Sounds good.

Mitch: What are you doing here?

Zack: Take it easy, Mitch, ok?

Mitch: I'm taking it easy. You show up in town, you go after my wife. You donít know anything.

Frankie: Look, Mr. Blake, I'm really sorry about your wife and everything, but it was my Uncle who was killed, you know?

Mitch: Then your Uncle brought his own troubles on. Felicia was the one person outside of your family that tried to be decent to him.

Zack: Come on, let's go inside.

Stacey: Look, just forget about her.

Mitch: I just hope you can live with yourself.

Marley: And then Mikey was saying to the little --

[Donna sighs]

Marley: Donna, he hasn't been gone that long, has he?

Donna: Well, he's been gone long enough. I donít know whether to start worrying or to be angry at him.

Marley: You know what Michael probably did? He bought a double soufflť and he had to drive 10 miles an hour to get here because he didnít want the soufflť to drop.

Donna: A chocolate soufflť, maybe?

Marley: Mmm, chocolate.

Donna: I love that. He knows I love chocolate.

Marley: Oh. Well, see? That's it, then.

Donna: That's got to be it. I think that man knows everything there is to know about me.

Marley: I doubt anybody knows everything about you.

Donna: Why do you say that?

Marley: Oh, because you and Victoria are the mysterious types.

Donna: Well, women are supposed to be mysterious.

Marley: I'm not.

Donna: You certainly are.

Marley: Oh, no, no. Everybody says I'm straight as an arrow. I think it's a euphemism for "boring."

Donna: Marley love, I will not allow you to say that about yourself.

Marley: Well, Jake loves me just the way I am, and that's what's important.

Donna: Yes, he does. He's not stupid.

Marley: Donna, does Victoria talk to you about Jake and me?

Donna: Why would she?

Marley: Well, I -- I know that you two are very close, especially since Victoria had Steven.

Donna: Now, wait just a minute. You're not going to be jealous, are you?

Marley: No, I am -- I am not jealous, really.

Donna: Good, because I love both of you. You know that.

Marley: I do, of course I do. It's just that I do know that when your daughter's pregnant it is a very special time --

Donna: Darling --

Marley: And Vicky has been very distant from me since she's had Steven, like I'm going to fall apart or something.

Donna: Well --

Marley: But I'm not, and I want you two to know that. I am not giving up hope.

Donna: Good, good, but she's just concerned about your situation.

Marley: I know that, but I do want to share with you that I am looking into something already.

Donna: What's this?

Marley: Well, these are brochures to adoption agencies. Jake thinks I should have an open mind about it, and I am. What do you think?

Iris: Do you think I enjoy begging like this, begging you in a public place?

Michael: Iris, I am not going to do what you want me to do.

Iris: Look, if you could just explain to him, I know he'll listen to you.

Michael: Sorry. Not this time.

Iris: Michael, there is no one else I can turn to. I need you. I've always needed you. I canít stop needing you.

Michael: Iris, you're going to have to get over that.

Iris: I canít. I've tried all sorts of stupid things to get over you. I -- I canít. I think that's why I thought of the idea about the takeover.

Michael: What?

Iris: Well, I was so lonely, I -- I thought that if perhaps I saved Daddy, you know, he'd be so grateful, he'd love me so much that I'd get over you.

Michael: Wait a minute. Are you trying to blame this on me?

Iris: No, of course not. It was my idea. I take full responsibility for it. It was my fault. It's just that now I may have lost my father, too.

Michael: That's right. You may have lost your father. You put him through hell, Iris.

Iris: That was a mistake. That business with Drew and Amanda -- it was all Drewís doing.

Michael: Look, did you ever stop and think what Mac and Rachel went through, what Amanda went through?

Iris: I know it was dreadful, but it wasn't meant to happen. It was Drewís idea.

Michael: Well, even if that's true, you let it happen. You lied.

Iris: Michael, you have got to believe me, I would never, ever hurt my father. It just got out of control. You should understand that. I mean, you never -- you never meant to hurt me, but you did.

Michael: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You and me -- it always comes down to you and me, doesn't it, Iris? When is it going to stop?

Iris: Michael, if -- if you'd just do this one thing for me, I promise I will never ask you for another thing.

Michael: Sorry. I will not.

Iris: I will give up the one thing that means as much to me as Daddy.

Michael: And what is that?

Iris: You. I will give you up, Michael, I swear.

Jake: I donít want to see anybody get hurt, Vicky.

Vicky: Oh. I love this. I really do. You want me to tell Jamie to take a paternity test, but you donít want to hurt anybody?

Jake: Vicky, that's not --

Vicky: What is he going to do after I tell him?

Jake: Damn it! Donít you want to know the truth, Vicky?

Vicky: The truth is that Jamie is the father and you're just trying to twist the facts until you get what you want.

Jake: What happened to us, Vick? I mean, we used to have something special. No matter what kind of crap came down, you know, you and I -- we were always honest with each other.

Vicky: What does that have to do with anything?

Jake: You stabbed me in the back, Vicky. I wouldnít have done it to you.

Vicky: Oh, you're such a saint.

Jake: If Marley would have had Steven, Vicky, and you would have through there was some remote possibility that it was Jamieís; I'd do everything I could to help you get the truth.

Vicky: You're trying to ruin my life!

Jake: No, I am not!

Vicky: Then why are you pushing me like this?

Jake: Damn it, Vicky, you pushed me! You pushed my son right out of my life!

Vicky: He's not your son. This is so --

Jake: We are going to find out whether he is or not.

Vicky: By Jamie taking a paternity test?

Jake: By Jamie taking a paternity test, right.

Vicky: That will ruin my marriage.

Jake: Why would it ruin your marriage? You and Jamie weren't even together when you and I were --

Vicky: I did not tell him about that night!

Jake: Yeah, well, maybe you should have.

Vicky: Just like you told Marley? You think she's going to understand all this, right, but you have not said a word to her.

Jake: I still have to know.

Vicky: I canít believe this. I -- I really cannot believe this. You want to ruin my marriage and risk losing Marley all because of a possibility that you're --

Jake: It's not just a possibility anymore, and I am not going to lose Marley. And maybe now we'll have our baby.

Vicky: That's what this is about? This is all about you and Marley having a baby?

Jake: That's not the point, Vicky. The point is I --

Vicky: The point is that you will do anything to take my baby!

Jake: He's going to find out anyway. Sooner or later, Vicky, it's going to come out. I canít stand the idea of Steven being hurt like that. Can you?

Jake: How do you think Steven will feel when he finds out you kept it from him, Vicky?

Vicky: You are acting like this test already proved that you're his father.

Jake: "If," Vicky. I'm saying if he finds out when he's 10 or 12 or maybe even later, how do you think he's going to think about you, huh?

Vicky: That's not the issue, and you know it.

Jake: I donít want him to think I didnít want him, Vicky!

Vicky: He's not even your son, Jake!

Jake: Well, we'll take it one step at a time. The first step is to have Jamie take the test.

Vicky: It is going to ruin my marriage if Jamie takes that test.

Jake: Not necessarily, not if he loves you.

Vicky: Oh. Give me a break.

Jake: Either you tell him, Vicky, or I will.

Vicky: We spent one night together, just one night. Do I have to pay for that for the rest of my life?

Jake: What if Stevenís whole life is based on a lie, Vicky? No matter whose son he is, he does not deserve that.

Vicky: Steven is Jamieís son!

Jake: No, you donít know that any more than I do.

Vicky: Oh. I -- I just have to think, so would you please shut up a minute.

Jake: Wishing is not going to make it true, Vicky. It's not just going to disappear when Steven grows up and wants to know the truth, not your version, Vick -- the real truth. You got to do it, Vicky. You have to do it for Steven.

Vicky: I'll tell Jamie to take the test.

Donna: Adoption is a big decision. Are you sure you're ready for this?

Marley: No, but I want to look into it.

Donna: But shouldnít you give it some more time?

Marley: I am still going to keep hoping, but just hoping isnít enough right now.

Donna: Is Jake pushing you on this?

Marley: No, he's not. I want a child.

Donna: I know you want a child, but --

Marley: And sometimes, I even hold Steven and I think that he's a part of me a little bit.

Donna: I know.

Marley: But I'm ok. I really am.

Donna: Have you discussed all these feelings with Jake?

Marley: Oh, please donít worry. I -- really. I am going to go now, and please donít worry about Michael, because he is going to be home soon.

Donna: Well, I hope he will.

Marley: And I am going to the Paradise right now to pick up Jake, because he has not seen these brochures yet, and I will have Mikey home tomorrow in the afternoon.

Donna: All right. Now, if you've seen Michael over there, you tell him I'm waiting.

Marley: I sure will. Happy anniversary.

Donna: Thank you and thank you for the picture.

Marley: You're welcome.

Donna: Darling, donít rush in anything, please.

Marley: I wonít.

Donna: All right?

Marley: Thank you. Bye.

Mitch: You donít have to be strong for me, you know.

Felicia: I know. I'm sorry that I put you through all of this.

Mitch: Me?

Felicia: Sometimes I think it's been harder on you than anyone. I am sorry.

Mitch: Look, you haven't put me through anything. You've brought me nothing but love and happiness. You're the best thing that's ever happened to me.

Cass: Hi.

Felicia: Hi.

Cass: The judge should be coming out pretty soon.

Felicia: So, how long will it be?

Cass: What?

Felicia: My sentence. You know, you lawyers -- you take odds on things like that, donít you? I mean, what's the word out on the street?

Cass: Well, I wouldnít be surprised if you got off with probation.

Felicia: But we both know I wonít.

Cass: No, I think it's even possible you wonít have to serve a day.

Felicia: Cass, tell me.

Cass: It's 10 to 25. I'm asking for the minimum.

Felicia: 10 years?

Cass: Yes, 10 years.

Felicia: I see.

Mitch: It's not really 10 years, you know. There's always a parole hearing after a year or two.

Cass: But like I said, I really wouldnít be surprised if you didnít have to --

Felicia: No, it's funny. I guess I never really understood how -- how long it would be. Oh, honey. I'm so sorry. I'm going to miss your wedding.

Cass: I'm going to appeal, you know. I'm not going to stop until you're cleared. Donít you ever forget that, Felicia.

Bailiff: The judge says about five minutes.

Cass: Thank you.

Felicia: Five minutes.

Donna: Michael?

Michael: Yeah, Donna?

Donna: Are you alone?

Michael: Yeah, I'm alone.

Donna: Well, you were so late coming home, I -- I had to unwrap your present.

Mac: Well, the more material we have on her, the better. Feliciaís innocent, and I want everyone to know it.

Rachel: Are you going to be editing these articles yourself?

Mac: Oh, no, no, I'll assign them to someone. I'm too personally involved.

Rachel: Well, it seems like a great idea.

Mac: Do you have to get home?

Rachel: Well, I'm just wondering if the judge is ready to sentence Felicia.

Mac: What? Oh, Cass said he'd let us know as soon as he heard anything.

Rachel: Darling, do you want me to do this?

Mac: What?

Rachel: Go through all of this stuff here in Iris' office?

Mac: No, no, dear. I want to -- I want to keep busy. And anyway, Felicia is all that's important right now.

Rachel: Darling, you understand, if you do these articles on Felicia, all of this information about Iris is going to come out.

Mac: Yes, I know.

Rachel: Cass has made her the -- a suspect with a very good motive.

Mac: It's still hard for me to believe not only was she behind the takeover attempt, she was also evidently involved with Jason Frame, paying him blackmail?

Rachel: Look, I can handle these articles on Felicia, if you want.

Mac: No, really, I want to keep busy. I'm going to find some way to help Felicia, no matter what my -- what Iris has done. Iris. What are you doing here?

Frankie: You canít go in there.

Derek: What?

Frankie: It's a closed session. Now, who is it you're looking for?

Derek: The D.A.

Frankie: She's not in there yet. Now, I've been working with her. Is there something I can help you with?

Derek: Donít think so.

Frankie: No, look, you said that you wanted to help Felicia, right? Fanny? Isnít that what you call her? Fanny? Now, look, if you want to help her, I can probably do you some good. Maybe we can even work together.

Derek: You're not on her side.

Frankie: On whose side? Fanny's? Of course I am, if she's innocent. But if she is innocent, the only that's going to help her is the truth, so let's figure out what that truth is. What do you say? Now, you said that Felicia lied that night. You said that you were there. Now, what did you see?

Stacey: Donít listen to her.

Frankie: Hey, lady, would you back off? I mean, he looks like a big boy to me. He can take care of himself.

Stacey: No, wait a second. I donít think you understand.

Frankie: Oh, is that right? Maybe I understand a little bit better than you think.

Stacey: Derek, wait a second. I want to talk to you.

Derek: No, I told you your laws wouldnít work, and they didnít.

Stacey: We lost the battle, but there's plenty more we can do, I promise you.

Derek: There's nothing anyone can do. It's all a game you people play. From now on I'm going to help Fanny in my own way.

Cass: Stacey, it's time. Let's go.

Stacey: Ok. It's a closed session, so you canít come in.

Derek: More rules. Rules for a game.

Stacey: What did you mean before when you said that you want to help her your own way?

Cass: Stacey, come on.

Stacey: Ok, Cass, can you wait a second? I just want to ask him a few questions. Deó

Marley: Jake!

Jake: Hey! What are you doing here?

Marley: I'm looking for my husband. Where have you been?

Jake: Oh, I had a few errands to run, and I forgot my paycheck here, so I came back.

Marley: Oh?

Jake: Where's Mikey?

Marley: Mikey is at the Donahueís, playing with the children, and we're going to pick him up on his way home. But I have something to show you.

Jake: I didnít know you were ready to talk about this yet.

Marley: I'm checking up on it.

Jake: What changed your mind?

Marley: I think I was afraid, and admitting defeat, you know? But I really want to have a child. You know that. I pray for a child every day, and I want to keep trying. But I also think it's important that we face reality, donít you?

Jake: Yes.

Marley: Now, these places have a long waiting list, and they donít make any promises, but I thought that if we applied that maybe we could get a child sooner. Now, what do you think?

Jake: I think we should wait.

Vicky: The judge is going to sentence her tonight?

Jamie: Yeah. I should call Sharlene.

Vicky: Well, what happens to Felicia next?

Jamie: She goes to prison, unless something changes.

Vicky: Felicia Gallant in prison. I canít believe it.

Jamie: You know, I -- sometimes, I really donít know what to say to Sharlene.

Vicky: Does Sharlene want Felicia to be guilty?

Jamie: No, Sharlene is so confused, she doesn't know what to think.

Vicky: Has Josie come home?

Jamie: No. No, she hasn't. I canít imagine what that must be like, to have your child find out something like that and not having had a chance to prepare.

Vicky: That must be awful.

Jamie: Yeah. Well, at least she has John with her.

Vicky: That didnít matter at all, did it, to him? All the things about Sharleneís past?

Jamie: No. He loves her.

Vicky: That's wonderful that love is so forgiving, donít you think?

Jamie: What?

Vicky: Well, I was just thinking that when you love somebody and they make a mistake in their past, but they kind of have a reason to do it, and it may have been stupid, but that they should still be forgiven, because there's usually a reason that you make that mistake, but if you really love somebody, then they should really forgive you, because that's what love is. I mean, I think that's what love is, because love is so forgiving. Donít you agree?

Jamie: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I guess so. Honey, are you ok?

Vicky: Yes. I just love you.

Jamie: Good. I love you, too.

Vicky: Jamie, if I happen to do something in my past that was somewhat stupid, but I had a reason for it, you would still love me, wouldnít you? You would still forgive me, right?

Morgan: This woman confessed to shooting Jason Frame. Later, she tried to deny responsibility for it, but the evidence was conclusive, your honor. And when we weigh all of that evidence, along with the verdict rendered by our jury, convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that she was guilty as charged, the people respectfully request that a sentence of 25 years be imposed. A lesser sentence, your honor, would be an indication of privileged treatment for a celebrity. I thank you.

Judge: Mr. Winthrop?

Cass: I would just like to point out to the court that in this case every piece of evidence that the prosecution offered was circumstantial. And that alone should give us pause. But the jury reached a verdict, and the defense must live with that verdict -- for the time being. Regardless of what sentence is imposed, your honor, the defense is going to continue working on this case, seeking to uncover the true murderer. With regard to sentencing, Ms. Gallant has no prior record. She has been an exemplary citizen in every way. And so I respectfully request that the minimum sentence be imposed.

Judge: Thank you. I'd like to say before passing a sentence that both attorneys showed skill and professionalism during this trial. I've weighed all the evidence, as well as your recommendations. And I must say I was persuaded by prosecution's arguments. The evidence as presented was clear, and the verdict was also clear. Ms. Gallant was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. However, this is a first offense. As Mr. Winthrop has pointed out, the defendant has no prior history of violence or disregard for the law. Therefore, Felicia Gallant, this court sentences you to the state penitentiary at Glenbrook for a period of 10 years. The defendant is to be immediately remanded into custody. This case is closed.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Marley: I donít understand what you mean.

Jake: I just think we should wait for a while, that's all.

Marley: What are we waiting for?

Jake: You just -- you never know how things are going to turn out.

Marley: You were the one who brought up the idea of adoption in the first place.

Jake: Honey, honey, I'm not rejecting the idea. I'm just saying I think we should wait for a while.

Marley: If I canít give you a child of your own, then you donít want a child at all. Is that it?

Jake: I didnít say that.

Marley: Yeah, but that's what you're thinking, right?

Jake: No, it's not what I'm thinking.

Marley: Then what are we waiting for?

Jake: You never know. Things could change.

Marley: Jake, what is it?

Jamie: I donít think I understand what you're saying. Would I stand up for you the way John is standing up for Sharlene?

Vicky: Or like Mitch does for Felicia?

Jamie: Of course I would.

Vicky: You would forgive me?

Jamie: For what, honey? What are you talking about?

Vicky: Well, it's just that there were some things that I did before we were married, and -- what are you smiling at?

Jamie: Honey, honey, you're so amazing sometimes. You know that? You are very amazing.

Vicky: Why?

Jamie: Well, you try to act so tough all the time, do everything you can to get what you want, you know? And then the next minute you're like a little girl. You're all scared.

Vicky: I know, but --

Jamie: Sweetheart --

Vicky: There is --

[Steven cries]

Jamie: We're married now, and that -- is that the baby?

Vicky: Yes.

Jamie: Is Bridget here?

Vicky: No. She had to go out.

Jamie: Then it's time for super dad. Hold on.

[Steven cries]

Jamie: He just wanted somebody to hold him, that's all. He wanted his daddy. Yeah.

Vicky: Oh --

Jamie: Didnít you, little fellow?

Vicky: Hi, sweetheart.

Jamie: You know, if I do say so myself, I think he kind of looks like his dad in some ways. I know everybody says that, and I always say that, no, he looks more like his mom, you know, but maybe he does kind of have my nose. What do you think, Mom? Hmm? Vicky? Is something wrong?

Vicky: No.

Jamie: Oh, come on. There's something bothering you. What is it?

Vicky: Jamie --

Jamie: Come on, come on, come on. What is it you want to talk to me about?

Vicky: Nothing.

[Michael laughs]

Donna: Well, you still haven't told me.

Michael: Told you what?

Donna: Why you would say that?

Michael: I -- you donít want to know.

Donna: Iris. Iris.

Michael: Yeah, she was at the Paradise.

Donna: Never mind. I donít want to know.

Michael: What? I stood there talking to Iris, my dinner got cold, and Donna Hudson doesn't want to know about it? Hmm? Hmm?

Donna: I just want you.

Michael: Well, you got me.

Donna: I know. And I'm going to keep you, too.

Michael: You little devil, you.

Donna: Ah! Stop it!

Iris: Hello, Daddy. Hello, Rachel.

Rachel: Iris.

Iris: I just called in to get some work. There are few manuscripts I thought I'd go over this evening. There's an excellent article on the greenhouse effect. After I've edited it, perhaps you'd enjoy it.

Iris: Oh, by the way, there's a new artist who's started in the layout room. I think he would be perfect for that fall article that "Brava's" doing on men's fashions. I'll send you some of his work, all right?

Mac: Iris, I want you out of here by tonight.

Iris: What?

Mac: I'll have your things delivered to you tomorrow. You're no longer wanted here, Iris.

Iris: Daddy, please.

[Door slams]

Felicia: Ok?

Cass: Oh, she doesn't need the handcuffs. Come on.

Officer: It's the rules.

Cass: It's not over, Felicia. I promise you.

Mitch: Felicia --

Cass: Oh, give him a chance, will you?

Mitch: I'm not saying goodbye.

Felicia: I'm ok. Are you?

Mitch: Yeah.
