Amanda: I hope you do not mind your coffee a little weak.

Evan: I like it hot.

Amanda: The toast a little burned? I'm afraid I do not know my parents' kitchen very well.

Evan: Well, that's ok. How did you sleep last night?

Amanda: Not very well, actually.

Evan: Well, that does not say too much for my security services.

Amanda: No, that wasn't it.

Evan: Amanda, what is wrong?

Amanda: I just--I feel like maybe I should not have asked you to stay last night.

Evan: Why? What are you talking about?

[Door bell]

Amanda: I just feel--

[Door bell ringing] Um, excuse me.

Vicky: Oh, hi, Amanda.

Amanda: Hi.

Vicky: I hope it is not too early.

Amanda: No, no.

Vicky: I just heard you were all alone, and I wanted to come by and see if you were ok.

Due to illness, the part of Russ Matthews will be played today by Jerry Lanning.

Jamie: Well, I think Gonzalez is a very able man.

Russ: But is he an administrator?

Jamie: Well, he was chief of cardiology when I first arrived here, and there were no problems then.

Russ: I set up a meeting with him.

Jamie: I think that's a good idea.

Matt: Hi, Jamie. Could I talk to you for a minute?

Jamie: Sure, go ahead.

Matt: Alone.

Russ: Ah, I've to be going anyway. My daughter is treating me to a little breakfast. I think she wants something. I'll see you later.

Jamie: Bye-bye.

Matt: Bye-bye.

Jamie: Now, what's wrong, Matt?

Matt: It's Josie. I think I made a big mistake. I do not know what to do about it.

Sharlene: Yes, I am; I am, too. I'm fun; I'm a barrel of laughs.

John: No, you're not a barrel of laughs. You get up so quick out of bed and get dressed. What was that all about?

Sharlene: I can't stay in bed all morning.

John: I'm not talking about all morning.

Sharlene: John, I have to go to work. I have a company to run.

John: You can afford to be a little bit late.

Sharlene: A little late? How about two hours?

John: Not two hours. I'm not talking about two hours.

Sharlene: Look at your watch.

John: Ooh, boy. It flew by, didn't it?

Sharlene: Mm-hmm, yeah. So, I have breakfast to fix.

John: Well, I'm not hungry.

Sharlene: Well, Frankie will be, and she is going to be down any minute.

John: Now, Frankie is a big girl. She can take care of herself. She does not need you.

Sharlene: Oh, John.

John: I need you.

Sharlene: Stop.

[Giggles]

Lucas: Lightly scrambled with the lox and bagels to follow.

Waitress: Lox?

Lucas: They're in the kitchen; I had them ordered.

Waitress: Whatever you say. Everything is for two?

Lucas: Right. And toast half the bagels and leave the other half whole.

Waitress: Anything else?

Lucas: No. That'll be it. Thank you.

Felicia: Good morning. And I mean morning. The sun is barely up.

Lucas: It's almost 9:00, Felicia.

Felicia: That's exactly what I mean. I didn't realize that Ada opened this early.

Lucas: She doesn't. I bribed the assistant chef. He is making breakfast for just the two of us.

Felicia: You know, you could have come to my place. I would've ordered breakfast from Dob's.

Lucas: That is the whole point. I did not want to come to your place.

Felicia: Why?

Lucas: Because Mitch is there.

Felicia: Of course Mitch is there. Mitch is my husband.

Lucas: Mitch is also very hostile toward me.

Felicia: Now look, Luke, Mitch is very wary of you. And he is of course protective of me, but then he would be, wouldn't he?

Lucas: I don't really care about Mitch. It's you.

Felicia: What do you mean me?

Lucas: Your attitude when you're around Mitch.

Felicia: What? What attitude?

Lucas: You're distant. It's like we're strangers.

Felicia: In many ways, we are strangers, aren't we?

Lucas: Oh, how can that be?

Felicia: Because my life went in one direction, and your life went in another--that's how.

Lucas: So what?

Felicia: Luke, it cannot be like it was.

Lucas: We shared a past. We still share a child.

Felicia: I want you to understand something right now. Mitch is my husband.

Lucas: Of course he is.

Felicia: And I love him.

Lucas: Good, all right.

Felicia: And anything that I'm involved in, from here on, will involve Mitch--even the search for our daughter.

Lucas: Ok.

Frankie: [Sighs]

Reuben: Hey. Hey, that is a mean-looking breakfast you've got there, Frankie.

Frankie: I can hear you, Reuben; you don't have to yell, ok?

Reuben: Oh. You a little hung over?

Frankie: Yeah, I am ok.

Reuben: Did a little partying, huh?

Frankie: A little pinball, a little wine, that's it.

Reuben: No food?

Frankie: No food. Zero food. Not until I got out of bed this morning, and I have not stopped eating since. I am one big bottomless pit.

Reuben: I know what you mean. I could go for a little breakfast myself.

Frankie: Yeah...

Ronnie: Well, one little breakfast coming up.

Frankie: Hey, Ronnie.

Ronnie: Hey, Frankie. Blueberry Danish, hot coffee.

Reuben: What you doing around here?

Ronnie: I came to see my little brother.

Reuben: For no reason?

Frankie: Hey, blueberry Danish. Ooh, some hotcakes swimming in syrup. Ah! Two eggs over easy, yes.. Handle the phones for me; I'll be back in 15.

Reuben: All right.

Ronnie: [Laughs] Here you go.

Reuben: Thanks.

Ronnie: So, everything is good?

Reuben: Yeah.. It is good.

Ronnie: Well, Zack says you're doing very well here.

Reuben: I'm getting along.

Ronnie: Learning a lot?

Reuben: I'm picking up a few things.

Ronnie: Picking up a few things.

Reuben: Yeah.

Ronnie: [Laughs] Well, I'm very happy for you, Reuben. Have you seen Jesse lately?

Reuben: Yeah. Seen him a lot.

Ronnie: Well, I don't see him as much as I'd like. Do you know what his plans are for the summer?

Reuben: Nah. What's up?

Ronnie: Well, I just think he should go to summer school.

Reuben: Sure.

Ronnie: Then he wouldn't have to take such a heavy load next year, you know?

Reuben: Sounds cool to me.

Ronnie: Well, it does not sound so good to Jesse.

Reuben: Oh, yeah?

Ronnie: Well, he feels he needs to work full-time.

Reuben: How come?

Ronnie: To pay you back.

Reuben: Me?

Ronnie: Yeah. He told me you loaned him $500.

Reuben: Ah, he told you that, huh?

Ronnie: Uh-huh. Now when did you do this?

Reuben: I did it a while ago.

Ronnie: I had no idea he needed money.

Reuben: Well, he didn't want you to know about it. Anyway, I did not loan the boy the money; I gave it to him, all right? I ain't looking to get paid back. I told him that.

Ronnie: Oh, that is very generous of you, Reuben..

Reuben: I ain't looking for no medals or nothing like that. It's just Jesse-Jesse got brains, you know what I'm saying? He's going places..

Ronnie: Mm-hmm. Well, you could go places, too.

Reuben: Oh, yeah, I do. This Saturday I plan on going to the beach.

Ronnie: Why can't you ever be serious about yourself, Reuben?

Reuben: [Laughs] 'Cause if you start taking yourself too seriously, you get real boring.

Ronnie: You know, I had no idea you were making such good money here.

Reuben: So what is that supposed to mean?

Ronnie: Well, to be able to loan--no, sorry--I mean give your brother $500.

Reuben: So that's what this is all about, isn't it?

Ronnie: What?

Reuben: That's why you came down here, isn't it? It ain't got nothing to do with Jesse. It's all about you getting on my case, right? That's all the--how do you think I got that money, huh? What, you think I stole it? Is that what you think, Ronnie?

Vicky: I hope I'm not interrupting.

Amanda: No.

Evan: No.

Amanda: Not at all.

Evan: Actually I was just leaving.

Vicky: Oh.

Amanda: Thanks for all your help, Evan.

Evan: Well, sure. I'll see you back at the office?

Amanda: Right, right.

Evan: Well, good. Take care, Vicky.

Vicky: You, too. Later, Evan. Is that guy going out with anybody?

Amanda: No, not that I know of.

Vicky: Hmm, it is a shame. He is gorgeous.

Amanda: He is good-looking, yeah.

Vicky: Nice, too, huh?

Amanda: Very. Do you want a cup of coffee?

Vicky: Yeah, Amanda. I'm sorry. I didn't expect to find you here with someone this early.

Amanda: Well, we were just discussing problems, you know, at "Cory." We have had to handle an awful lot lately.

Vicky: Oh, you get started early..

Amanda: Yeah. So how have you been?

Vicky: Ok. Fine..

Amanda: Yeah?

Vicky: Yeah.

Amanda: Good, it seems like ages since we've talked.

Vicky: I know, I'm sorry. I didn't know if you wanted to talk to anybody or not. But I really should have called more often.

Amanda: No, no, that's all right, really.

Vicky: Now, Amanda, how are you doing? I mean really, how are you doing? You looked so in control at the memorial service.

Amanda: That was an act.

Vicky: Your Dad was the best.

Amanda: I know, thanks. Hey, how's my nephew, huh? How's Steven doing?

Vicky: Oh, well, there's not much to tell. He is wonderful, adorable, and I adore him.

Amanda: That isn't enough. I want to know how much he weighs, how tall he is, how often he wakes up in the middle of the night.

Vicky: All right, all right! Let's see. He is 16 pounds, 23 1/2 inches, and he sleeps through the night.

Amanda: He sleeps through the night?

Vicky: Yeah. How long did it take Alli?

Amanda: She still wakes up at least once.

Vicky: Hmm, I'm lucky, I guess.

Amanda: I hate you!

Vicky: [Laughs]

Amanda: I'm jealous. So what do you think of motherhood?

Vicky: Oh, I think it's great, except--boy, when they say it changes your life--

[Whistles]

Amanda: It really does, totally, huh?

Vicky: Yeah. You know, I can't even go shopping for myself anymore. I find myself in the baby department at all the department stores.

Amanda: I do the same thing!

Vicky: ...And buy for Steven. Oh, boy, it really does--it really does change your life.

Amanda: You ever resent it?

Vicky: What?

Amanda: The responsibility. I mean, it is an awful lot to handle. Somebody like you that has never been tied down before.

Vicky: Oh, I don't mind.

Amanda: Not even a little?

Vicky: No, why do you ask?

Amanda: No reason. I--I just think it's healthy to realize the drawbacks. And it makes me feel better to complain to other mothers.

Vicky: Amanda, why are you pushing me on this?

Amanda: Oh, I'm not. I'm just talking about my own personal experience. I mean, there's times when Alli just drives me crazy, and I'd love to just take off and be totally selfish one day.

Vicky: I knew it.

Amanda: What?

Vicky: Jake talked to you, didn't he? Didn't he?

Amanda: Jake did talk to me, yes.

Vicky: Oh, that lousy--

Amanda: Out of concern.

Vicky: For himself.

Amanda: As a friend.

Vicky: He is not my friend.

Amanda: I thought the two of you grew up together.

Vicky: He tries to poison people's minds against me. He started with Marley, and now he's working on you.

Amanda: Wait, I don't understand.

Vicky: Jake wants to convince you that I'm not being a good mother.

Amanda: No, that isn't true.

Vicky: Oh, I am sure he pretended to be noble and played the concerned brother-in-law to the hilt, didn't he?

Amanda: He just thinks you're going through a hard time.

Vicky: Oh, Jake doesn't give a damn what I'm going through.

Amanda: Vicky, anything that he says could never change my mind about you.

Vicky: Amanda, I need to know exactly what Jake told you.

Amanda: I don't remember exactly.

Vicky: Was he specific? I mean, did he say I leave Steven in the bathtub--

Amanda: No!

Vicky: ...Or I don't pick him up when he cries?

Amanda: Nothing like that! No.

Vicky: He just said that I'm losing interest and that Steven isn't my first priority.

Amanda: Something like that.

Vicky: Oh, that son of a--

Amanda: Look, wait, Vicky, I'm sure he did not mean for any of this to hurt you.

Vicky: Jake lives to hurt me.

Amanda: He is your friend.

Vicky: He is not my friend any more. You know, now he's got Marley on his side, and they're so wrapped up in their jealousy because Jamie and I have a baby and they don't.

Amanda: Wait, I can't believe this.

Vicky: Believe it.

Amanda: You and--you and Marley were so close.

Vicky: Yeah, until Jake brainwashed her.

Amanda: Look, Vicky--

Vicky: There is a lot you don't know, Amanda. But I'm really grateful to you.

Amanda: To me? Why?

Vicky: Because now I know what Jake is doing. And now I can stop him.

Russ: I thought you were going to treat me.

Olivia: I'm paying, father, don't worry.

Russ: The hospital cafeteria is hardly a treat.

Olivia: But the grapefruit is very fresh here. I am on a new regime.

Russ: What kind of new regime?

Olivia: I've discovered the country club pool. 50 laps a day and then a sauna. You know, I think I might be able to adjust to Bay City after all.

Russ: You might?

Olivia: Mm-hmm. It has a certain Midwestern charm.

Russ: This is a major turnaround, Olivia.

Olivia: Well, you know me. I change my mind about things.

Russ: Yes. I do know you. I know when you are buttering me up.

Olivia: Me?

Russ: What is the deal, Olivia?

Olivia: Oh, look, there's Matt Cory.

Russ: I saw him earlier.

Olivia: Something is wrong. That is not a happy conversation.

Russ: Yeah, he was pretty upset when he came in.

Olivia: More trouble with Josie, I bet.

Russ: Possibly. Olivia, if--

Olivia: You know, not that I particularly care, but if I were Matt, I would give up on that girl. She gives him nothing but grief.

Matt: Last night--

Jamie: Yeah?

Matt: Josie and I talked. And finally she told me what happened when she found out about her mother's past.

Jamie: Well, that is good.

Matt: Well, I told her that it does not make any difference to me. I still care about her the same way. And then, um, then we...

Jamie: You made love.

Matt: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Jamie: Matthew, you look so upset. You used protection, didn't you?

Matt: Yeah, yeah!

Jamie: I mean, this is no time to get careless.

Matt: We were not careless. We thought about it. I mean, we were not going to rush into anything until the time was right.

Jamie: And last night it was?

Matt: I thought it was, and I thought that she thought it was, but something went wrong.

Jamie: Matthew, you did not push her into anything?

Matt: No, I didn't; I would not do that.

Jamie: Ok, then tell me, what happened?

Matt: It was afterwards. All of a sudden--I don't know-- she freaked out.

Jamie: Freaked out? How?

Matt: Well, she would not talk to me and then she got up and ran out of the cabin.

Jamie: And you have not seen her since?

Matt: No. I think I hurt her some way. I swear I don't know how, though.

Sharlene: Look--oh, wait a second.

John: What?

Sharlene: A note. From Frankie, she's gone to work already.

John: Well, you seem relieved. Or are you just worried she is not punctual?

Sharlene: Well, yeah.

John: Or are you embarrassed to have me over when she is here?

Sharlene: No. I'm not embarrassed.

John: Well, good, 'cause I don't think she's shocked by it.

Sharlene: Well, that is not it.

John: Great. Let's go back upstairs.

Sharlene: John, I have to go to work. No, work. Remember work--a living, food on the table.

John: All right, all right, fine, then I'll go with you.

Sharlene: You don't--wait, you're gonna--

John: ...Get my hat.

Sharlene: John, you do not have to go to work with me.

John: Well, yes I do. I want to make sure the place did not fall apart when I was working at the hospital yesterday.

Sharlene: Well, thank you for the vote of confidence.

John: I also have to make sure all those guys understand.

Sharlene: Understand what?

John: That you belong to me.

Sharlene: Hat's on crooked.

John: That is not crooked, that is a jaunty angle.

Sharlene: [Laughs]

John: Now, don't worry. I'm not one of those who hovers.

Sharlene: Oh, heck. You just hover all you want.

John: I love it when you talk dirty.

Sharlene: [Laughs]

John: Hey, we never did have any breakfast, did we?

Sharlene: Well, sweetheart, that's because you would not get out of bed.

John: Well, you know, I used to get out of bed. I was very good at getting out of bed. But ever since I met you, I've just destroyed my talent for getting out of bed.

Josie: Hello, Vivien? It is Josie. Is Mrs. Wheeler there? She's not. Um, well, do you know when she will be back? To New York. Um, ok, thanks. This is my buddy.

Felicia: Oh, thank you.

Waitress: You're welcome.

Felicia: You're silent. What does that mean, exactly?

Lucas: I'm eating...and thinking.

Felicia: About what?

Lucas: About Mitch. I think I understand the situation now.

Felicia: Situation... this is not a situation! This is a marriage. This is a very happy marriage.

Lucas: Are you as committed to finding our daughter as I am?

Felicia: Why do you keep asking me that, why? You know I'm just as committed as you are.

Lucas: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I've hired some investigators from Chicago.

Felicia: Ok.

Lucas: They're going to look into this police chief, talk to some of his survivors, see if they know about the adoption.

Felicia: Well, I hope they do. He certainly can't tell us anything, can he?

Lucas: I'm going to talk to some of the old-timers on the Police Force as well. You know, I don't think this-- this clown--it's the first time he set up one of these adoptions. Somebody has got to know something.

Felicia: You know, this sounds like it is going to take a while.

Lucas: I don't care.

Felicia: I mean, if you want to go back to New York, you can. I can oversee everything here.

Lucas: Is that what Mitch wants?

Felicia: I was thinking about you. What about your business?

Lucas: What about it?

Felicia: Well, can you be away this long?

Lucas: Well, actually I have some business in Bay City.

Felicia: Really?

Lucas: Yes, a new client--a very important new client.

Felicia: Well then, that is good.

Lucas: In fact, I have taken a place here.

Felicia: Have you?

Lucas: Mm-hmm. In Love Tower.

Felicia: My building.

Lucas: Do you mind?

Felicia: No, why would I mind?

Lucas: I just get this feeling that you have mixed emotions about this whole thing. Are you sorry I came here at all, Felicia?

Felicia: Mitch, honey.

Mitch: Felicia.

Felicia: Hi.

Mitch: Sorry to interrupt. I found a way to trace your daughter.

Reuben: That's what this is all about, isn't it, Ronnie?

Ronnie: Where did you get the money?

Reuben: Who cares? You didn't have to come up with it, did you? The boy didn't have to drop his class, did he?

Ronnie: No, he didn't, and that's wonderful, Reuben, but--

Reuben: But what?

Ronnie: You have influence over Jesse.

Reuben: And you think I'm going to screw up my baby brother?

Ronnie: I'm just saying you've been in trouble in the past.

Reuben: That's right, and I paid for that, too.

Ronnie: Yeah, you did. But you still know people.

Reuben: That's right, I know people. Don't you know people?

Ronnie: You know what I'm talking about.

Reuben: No, I don't know what you're talking about. Why don't you spell it out for me?

Ronnie: All right. All right, I will. No, I don't think you stole the $500. But I'm pretty sure it did not come out of your salary.

Reuben: Oh yeah? Well, where you think it came from then, huh?

Ronnie: The streets. And when you get money from the streets, Reuben, sooner or later it comes back on you.

Reuben: So what you trying to say, Ronnie?

Ronnie: I don't want Jesse hurt. I've pretty much given up on you.

Reuben: That just makes me feel great, sis.

Ronnie: Well, you talk a good ball game, Reuben, but I keep seeing the same old thing. I'm sorry.

Reuben: Nah, don't be. Don't be sorry. I mean, the last thing I want is for Jesse to be hurt, right? I mean, I would hate it if he turned out anything like me, right?

Ronnie: I only meant if you really tried to get your act together--

Reuben: No, I know what you really meant. I know exactly what you really meant. And know what? I am going to fix it for you. I'm going to fix it so that Jesse never has to worry about me again.

Ronnie: Reuben, that's--

Reuben: Thanks for the Danish, sis. Nobody called, Frankie.

Reuben: I will see you later.

Frankie: I'm not even going to ask what that was about.

Reuben: Good. Ugh. Do you know what it feels like when not one person in your family can understand what you're about? I mean, sometimes I just feel like I'm from outer space or something.

Frankie: Oh, yes, honey, I do know that feeling.

Reuben: Do you?

Frankie: Yeah. But don't go asking me for advice. Because whenever I felt that way I just picked up stakes and left town.

Jamie: I think it had nothing to do with you.

Matt: I was the only other person there, Jamie.

Jamie: [Chuckling] No, no, I know that. It is just that maybe Josie just couldn't handle the situation. You know what I'm saying? Sex--sex stirs up some very powerful emotions.

Matt: Yeah, but--

Jamie: That's why a lot of older people are always telling younger people to, you know, to be very careful and not to rush into things.

Matt: We were careful; we thought through it. The only reason why we slept together was because I thought that we had a commitment.

Jamie: What kind of commitment?

Matt: [Sighs] The old-fashioned kind, you know the--you get married...someday.

Jamie: Well. Maybe--maybe everything has changed for Josie now.

Matt: Why would it?

Jamie: Well, I think that girls are handed a pretty heavy trip about sex, especially when it comes to the first time.

Matt: You mean different than guys?

Jamie: Well, you know, guys are supposed to, like, always be on the lookout for a score, like we're supposed to not have any feelings about it.

Matt: Yeah, yeah, but that's not true.

Jamie: Of course it's not true. But what I'm trying to say is that that's why it has probably nothing to do with you--that maybe Josie is just very scared of her own feelings.

Matt: No. Well, I'm sure Sharlene has convinced her that is the worst possible thing that she could do.

Jamie: Yeah, well, Sharlene. She is trying to change.

Matt: What should I do? Should I call her now?

Jamie: Well, I wouldn't let her think that you--that you're going to sleep with her one time and never call her again.

Matt: Ok. So, I should call her.

Jamie: Yeah. And maybe you can help her out, too.

Matt: What do you mean?

Jamie: Well, she's been through quite a bit, you know, and it's possible she might even need counseling.

Matt: So I should be careful with what I say.

Jamie: Well, just tell her-- speak from your heart, Matthew. I'm sure she will want to hear that. And if she doesn't, then--then--I don't know.

Matt: Ok, I understand, I understand. All right. Thanks.

Jamie: For what?

Matt: Oh, for listening. Not judging.

Jamie: Matt, it's not my place to judge. You and Josie made a decision based upon the fact that you--you love each other.

Matt: We do.

Jamie: Well, then I hope everything works out for you.

Josie: Yes, could you please tell me how often buses leaving--are leaving for New York City? Well, could you give me the times, please? 10:30? Go on. 11:00...11:25...thank you.

Sharlene: Josie?

Josie: I didn't hear you come in.

Sharlene: How long have you been here?

Josie: Just a few minutes.

Sharlene: Well, I'm glad I did not miss you.

Josie: I thought you would be at work by now.

Sharlene: Well, I was on my way, I was just coming back. I forgot I had some plans here. Josie, something's happened.

Josie: Yeah. You are right.

Sharlene: Josie, honey, what's wrong?

Josie: Can't you tell?

Sharlene: Tell? I don't...

Josie: I mean, I thought you'd take one look at me and know. See, mama, it has finally happened. Your darling daughter has lost her virginity.

Amanda's voice: I wish Sam were here.

Evan: Then why don't you just go to the phone and call him?

Amanda: No, that's all right. I--I call him every day.

Evan: Well, good. How's it going?

Amanda: Good. He says he may even get another show out of this.

Evan: Well, that is great.

Amanda: Yeah. I miss him, though.

Evan: I am sure you do.

Amanda: I really do wish he were here. I just want to feel his arms around me.

Evan: Amanda, I know I'm a poor substitute, but if you don't mind I will sit with you for a little while.

Amanda: Yeah, thanks.

[Door bell]

Amanda: Who is it?

Evan: It's Evan.

Evan: Hi, listen, I brought by some notes from the editorial meeting. I just thought maybe we should--well, if this isn't a good time.

Amanda: No, it is--it's fine. I just think maybe we should talk first.

Evan: Oh, good, that's another reason I came back because I wanted you to finish what we were talking about earlier.

Amanda: Look, I just feel really dumb, you know?

Evan: Why?

Amanda: I'm really grateful to you for staying last night.

Evan: Well, I was glad to do it.

Amanda: But in the light of day, you know, I see I was really making something out of nothing.

Evan: Amanda, I was happy to be here. I would not want to be anywhere else.

Amanda: I know. That is what I wanted to talk to you about.

[Phone rings] Um, excuse me. Hello? Sam, hi! Oh, I am so glad to hear from you. I love you.

[Phone rings]

Frankie: Winthrop and Edwards? All right, hold on a minute please. Uh, Reuben, it's for you.

Reuben: For me? Who is it?

Frankie: Uh, who's calling, please? Somebody from Al's Motorcycle shop.

Reuben: Tell him I'm not here.

Frankie: Uh, excuse me, I thought he was in the office, but it seems he stepped away from his desk for a moment. May I take.... uh, sure, I'll give him that message. Thank you. Reuben, it seems that Al is a bit upset with you.

Reuben: Al is a jerk.

Frankie: Yeah, well, you're late with your motorcycle payment. And he is going to repossess your bike.

Reuben: Fine. He can repossess my bike; I don't care.

Frankie: He stressed that it should be in mint condition.

Reuben: Jerk.

Frankie: And that if it wasn't, your parole officer was going to hear about it.

Reuben: Al said that?

Frankie: Yeah, pretty much word for word.

Reuben: Dammit.

Frankie: Now, look, Reuben, I have a little bit of money I can--

Reuben: No, no, no, no. I'm a bad credit risk. Didn't nobody tell you that?

Frankie: You are not in trouble or anything, are you? I mean, it is only that you're late with your payment, right?

Reuben: Frankie, trouble is my middle name. Just ask my sister.

Frankie: Where are you going?

Reuben: I really wish I knew.

Josie: Are you just going to stand there?

Sharlene: What do you want me to do?

Josie: Yell, scream, hit me.

Sharlene: Josie, I'm not angry.

Josie: Oh, right. Come on, mama, for the first time in your life tell the truth. I make you sick.

Sharlene: No, Josie. If you are upset--

Josie: You are not going to miss your big chance, are you?

Sharlene: My chance-Josie, what are you talking about?

Josie: All these years you've been waiting for me to act cheap, and now I tell you I've slept with someone and you--you act like you don't give a damn.

Sharlene: Of course I give a damn.

Josie: Then get on with it. Tell me how ashamed you are of me. Tell me what a little slut I am.

Sharlene: Josie, stop it, stop it. For God's sake, don't--just stop.

Josie: Why? I know that is what you're thinking. You've always thought it, and now you know you're right.

Sharlene: No, I wasn't! I was wrong!

Josie: No matter what I wore you always looked at me like you were waiting for me to turn into a tramp.

Sharlene: I was protecting you.

Josie: From what? From me?

Sharlene: No.

Josie: I always felt like hiding, hiding my body, hiding my feelings.

Sharlene: And that was my fault.

Josie: I hated myself for wanting to be with someone.

Sharlene: Josie, honey, I know that! I know that, and you should not have. Honey, what you did was a wonderful thing. It was a natural thing. But don't sleep with someone just to get back at me. What I did to you was a terrible thing, Jos.

Josie: Well, don't worry about me...'cause my problems are over. Now that I'm not a virgin anymore, everything is going to be a lot easier.

Sharlene: Josie, please.

Josie: I don't have anything to be afraid of anymore, mama because I don't have anything; I'm a whore, mama. I'm a whore, just...just like you.

Vicky: Is Jake McKinnon here yet?

Woman: Not yet. He comes in at noon.

Vicky: Oh. Well, I'll wait.

Mitch: It is an organization that helps separated parents and children find each other.

Lucas: Have they had any luck?

Mitch: 70%, they claim.

Lucas: Sounds good.

Mitch: Well, I've given the information that I had.

Lucas: You've already spoken to them?

Mitch: Well, they'll take the information that I've given them, they'll cross-check it with any girl that's her age that would be looking for her real parents.

Felicia: Mitch, you know it is very possible that our daughter does not even know she is adopted.

Mitch: I know that.

Felicia: Wouldn't that make it harder for us to trace her?

Lucas: But not impossible.

Mitch: There's something else you might want to think about.

Felicia: What?

Mitch: Your daughter. It could be that she is very happy. It could be that she has a very good life someplace. Is that something that you want to disrupt so you can tell her the truth?

Lucas: Damn right it is.

Felicia: Wait a minute. You know, I have thought about that.

Lucas: Well, I haven't.

Felicia: If I could--if I could see her. If I could know that she was really happy, maybe I could walk away.

Lucas: Oh, the hell with that. I want to know my child.

Olivia: Uh, father?

Russ: Uh-oh, here it comes.

Olivia: What?

Russ: I know that tone in your voice. You're after something.

Olivia: No. No, I'm not.

Russ: What is it?

Olivia: I'm not after anything. I was just wondering if--well, I was wondering how you would feel if I was offered a part in a major ballet.

Russ: Some day I hope you will be. But right now, I'm just happy to see you enjoying your teenage years.

Olivia: Oh, father, you don't understand. I mean, what I'm talking about.

Liz: There she is! I called the country club. I called the spa. Good morning again, Russ, darling.

Russ: Good morning, Liz.

Olivia: Do you want me for something, aunt Liz?

Liz: There is a summer sale at Willoby's.. Every single item at half price.

Russ: That should save me a fortune.

Jamie: Oh, Russ. Hi--excuse me, everybody. But I just ran into Gonzalez, and he is free for half an hour if you want to meet.

Russ: Good idea.

Jamie: He was looking to get a bite to eat, so I told him "The Paradise" because I assumed you've had your fill of this, um, this cafeteria food.

Russ: Yes, yes I have. Ladies, enjoy your sale.

Jamie: Ok. I'll see you later and Olivia.

Liz: Jamie, dear. How are your mother and Ada doing?

Jamie: Oh, I have not spoken to them since they left for Maine.

Liz: Oh, well, would you give them my love when you do talk to them?

Jamie: I sure will, yeah.

Liz: How are things going for you, dear?

Jamie: Well, some things are going better than others.

Liz: Aw! Well, at least you have that darling baby.

Jamie: Right.

Liz: And your wife, of course.

Jamie: I should be going. See you, Liz.

Liz: Call you soon.

Jamie: Ok.

Liz: Jamie is such a dear young man. Your face could freeze like that. You're frowning, what's wrong?

Olivia: My father is so dense.

Liz: What is he being dense about?

Olivia: He has no idea how important dance is to me.

Liz: Oh you told him about that?

Olivia: I gave him a big hint.

Liz: Oh, you're going to have to do more than that, my dear.

Olivia: It's no use. He is never going to let me go and audition in New York. Aunt Liz, this is the opportunity of a lifetime, and I am going to miss it.

Liz: Oh, Olivia, you are so young. You're going to have a lot more opportunities.

Olivia: Not if I stay in Bay City I won't. It's "Romeo and Juliet" in New York City. Aunt Liz, I could be turning down a chance to dance the lead in a major ballet.

Liz: Oh, my dear. Oh, Olivia, I know how hard you've worked. I know what a chance like this means. I am going to find a way. I promise.

Amanda: I miss you. I will. Ok. I will talk to you tomorrow. Bye, Sam.

Amanda: Sorry.

Evan: Hey, don't worry about it.

Amanda: Look, I would've called him back, you know, but he was at a pay phone.

Evan: Don't apologize. He is your husband.

Amanda: That is what we need to talk about, I think.

Evan: Oh, no, we don't.

Amanda: Look, this is really hard for me, too, you know?

Evan: You don't have to tell me how you feel about Sam.

Amanda: That isn't what I was going to say.

Evan: Yes--yes it is. It is obvious. I know you love him.

Amanda: That isn't all I was going to say.

Evan: Well, I really don't want to hear any more.

Amanda: I want you to hear it! Look, I feel very close to you. I mean, I care about you a lot.

Evan: Fine. Is that it?

Amanda: No, that isn't it. Sometimes I just feel like I take advantage of you.

Evan: No.

Amanda: Last night when Caroline showed up and she misinterpreted what was going on--

Evan: I don't give a damn what Caroline thinks or anyone else, Amanda!

Amanda: Would you let me finish, please?

Evan: Make it quick.

Amanda: She made me realize that I may be being unfair to you. I mean, I may be sending you mixed signals. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to do that.

Evan: You think I'm falling for you?

Amanda: I didn't say that.

Evan: That is what you're thinking.

Amanda: I just think that we should keep our friendship on a professional level.

Evan: Fine. I really don't have a problem with that. So why don't you go over these reports and get back to me.

Amanda: Evan, Evan--

Evan: I'll be in the office if you need me.

Felicia: You couldn't walk away?

Lucas: That is my child out there. She has to be part of my life.

Felicia: But what if she is happy?

Lucas: I have an appointment. Check is taken care of; we will talk later. Bye, Mitch.

Mitch: He is very determined.

Felicia: Let's not talk about Lucas, all right. Tell me about this organization. They really do have a 70% success rate?

Mitch: That's what they told me. From the way it sounds--the way they work, it's very simple.

Woman: Excuse me, coming through.

Vicky: Oh, hey, could I have a glass of...water? Then I will just help myself. "McKinnon: Personal." Nothing of Jake's is personal with me around.

Amanda's voice: Ok, why don't we just say it. Vicky got pregnant because it was the only way she could get Jamie away from Lisa.

Vicky: Jacob, you freak!

John: Ah, there you are. I thought you were coming back out to the site. Sharlene, what's wrong? What happened?

Sharlene: Josie was here. She said some things.

John: What? What? Is she ok?

Sharlene: No. No, she--she told me that she-John, she was like a different person.

John: Tell me what happened.

Matt: Sorry to barge in; the door was open.

Sharlene: What do you want?

Matt: I just wanted to check if you had seen Josie. I can tell you have. I don't know how to explain.

Sharlene: You don't need to explain.

Matt: Yes, I do. See, Josie's gone.

John: What?

Matt: She went by the spa, picked up her last check and quit. And then she checked out of the boarding house.

Sharlene: Oh, my God.

Matt: I went by there to find her and all her stuff was gone.

John: Did she leave a note or anything?

Matt: No note, nothing.

Sharlene: Oh, my God, where is she?

Josie: Excuse me? This is the bus going to New York City, isn't it?

Reuben: Josie! What are you doing here?

Josie: Guess the same thing you are. I'm getting the hell out of Bay City.

Reuben: All right, come on. Sit down.
