Frankie. Very enlightening.
Zack: Oh, Frankie, I almost forgot.
Zack: You had a phone call while you were out.
Frankie: Kevin Costner?
Frankie: Was he calling to cancel?
Zack: Uh, he said it wasn't important--that he'd talk to you later.
Frankie: Great, thanks.
Cass: What would he want to cancel, Frankie?
Frankie: A date. Well, not a date-date, a sort of date.
Cass: You and Derek? That's a pretty good match.
Frankie: Let's not go crazy, huh?
Cass: No, you guys would go great together. Listen, why don't you take the rest of the afternoon off.
Frankie: What is with you?
Cass: Yeah, take it off with pay. Come on, cut out.. I'll bet you have a wonderful time.
Frankie: Oh, no, no. No, you don't.
Frankie: No, this isn't going to work, counselor.
Cass: Zack, I'm trying to do the lady a favor and she says, "no, this isn't going to work, counselor."
Frankie: You're only doing this because you don't want Derek hanging around with Stacey, right?
Stacey: Listen, you really don't have to fix the door.
Derek: I broke it down, I'll fix it.
Stacey: I already called a carpenter.
Derek: I'll fix it.
Derek: Look, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say it like it sounded.
Stacey: It's all right.
Derek: No, it's not. I have to learn how to talk around people and how to act--how to say things. Like the other night, I wasn't mad at you.
Stacey: You weren't?
Derek: No, I just had some things I really had to talk to you about.
Stacey: Oh, so you were just sort of eager to talk, huh?
Derek: Right, that's why I ripped off your door.
Derek: Hey, you're reading Felicia's book. What do you think?
Stacey: I like Felicia's style, but I myself am not a big romance person. All that gushing dialogue and long flowing dresses and--oh, no, uh-uh. Well, I mean, naturally, I had to read a couple of pages before I formed an opinion.
Derek: I better get back to work.
Stacey: Yep, good idea.
Announcer: Due to illness, the part of Russ Matthews will be played today by Jerry Lanning.
Russ: Sorry I'm late.
Vicky: Damn it, Jake!
Jamie: Excuse me.
Russ: I'll grab a table.
Jamie: Hey. What is going on?
Vicky: Going on?
Waitress: That's what I heard.
Vicky: Oh, I'm really sorry.
Waitress: I thought someone had busted out the front window.
Vicky: No, I was getting myself a glass of water, and I knocked over the glasses. Really, it was an accident.
Waitress: Don't worry, I'll take care of it.
Jamie: Vicky, Vicky!
Vicky: Jamie, what are you doing here?
Jamie: I'm having a meeting with Russ.
Vicky: I won't keep you.
Vicky: You're in big trouble, pal. This time you've really gone too far.
Michael: Hm, tastes good.
Donna: Maybe I should take him to the zoo.
Donna: Of course, I did that last week. It would probably bore him to tears.
Michael: What are you talking about?
Donna: I think a better idea would be to make a play date for him.
Donna: You know, we could invite one of those little boys from his play group. What's the name of that little boy?
Donna: Jeremy. I'll go and ask him.
Michael: Wait a minute, hold it!
Donna: I'll be--I just want to ask him. I want him to make his own decision. I want him to get a feeling of responsibility.
Michael: Will you wait a minute?
Donna: I'll be right back.
Michael: What about your responsibility to me?
Donna: To you?
Michael: Well, yeah. Donna, look, Michael, I mean, he's our kid, and we've gotta take care of him, but you are spending all your free time planning every spare moment of his.
Donna: But I want him to be busy.
Michael: Well, fine. But there is such a thing as over-scheduling. I mean, he can be busy at home. He could entertain himself here. It would teach him to be self-sufficient.
Donna: My love, I did not realize this was bothering you.
Michael: I'm feeling lonely.
Donna: Oh, and I'm sitting here talking about Michael Spencer's social schedule.
Michael: Honey, I just don't think we get to spend enough time alone together.
Donna: Well, we will have to do something about that.
Michael: Mm, good. Wait a minute, Donna, now where are you going?
Donna: Michael, listen to me. You have to understand something. I have this need. It's almost as if I have to make up for all the years that I wasn't there for Victoria, and I don't want him to feel for one second that he isn't loved or wanted.
Michael: Donna, I'm sure he doesn't feel that way.
Donna: It's not just because of Victoria, though; it's my parents. Do you realize that I can't even remember spending time with them--that two or 3 weeks would go by when Nicole and I and Peter would not even see them? And I don't want his childhood to be like that.
Michael: Ok. Look, I'm sorry.
Donna: You don't have to be sorry, I just want you to understand.
Michael: It's just that, well, I forget. I forget what it was like growing up for you and Nicole.
Donna: And maybe that's why Nicole's life is so messed up right now.
Michael: Has she opened up to you at all?
Donna: I can't get through to her.
Michael: Donna, if you can't get through, I don't know who can.
Donna: I want you to talk to her because you have such a good way with her.
Nicole: Well, you are right about that.
Nicole: All Michael has to do is bat those baby-blues at me and I'll tell him anything. Um, there's a phone call upstairs for you, Michael. I said you'd be right there.
Michael: Thank you. I'll be back in a minute.
Donna: I thought you were resting?
Nicole: Oh, too wound up. Listen, how about if I babysit tonight and you and Michael go out for a nice romantic dinner?
Donna: No, no, absolutely not.
Nicole: I only charge two bucks an hour.
Donna: Nicole, I'm not going to leave you alone.
Nicole: That's ridiculous, I'm fine.
Donna: You're not fine. It's not good to suppress all of these feelings you're having.
Nicole: I have nothing to suppress.
Nicole: And I don't want your pity.
Donna: It's not pity.
Nicole: I have a wonderful man. Now what more can I ask for?
Donna: A wonderful man?
Nicole: Cass still loves me. He'll always love me.
Donna: Nicole, don't you think you're--
Nicole: Everything is going to work out, Donna. So why don't you just stop worrying?
Donna: I can't.
Donna: Because...you could be disappointed.
Nicole: Donna, Cass and I have been through a lot together, and we were meant to be. It's that simple.
Cass: Stacey and Derek? What a laugh!
Frankie: Well, he may not be ivy league, but I think Stacey has noticed his potential.
Cass: Oh, come on, Stacey is not ready to get involved with another guy yet.
Frankie: Somebody like Derek, you mean.
Cass: Don't tell me what I mean.
Frankie: Oh, so you don't care if she dates him?
Cass: I would rather see her dating somebody a little more stable.
Frankie: Oh, reliable.
Cass: Will you stop repeating everything I say?
Frankie: Do you have anyone in mind?
Cass: Yeah, as a matter of fact, yeah. Eric Jansen seems to be a lovely fellow.
Frankie: Seems to be, but you don't know him.
Cass: We've talked.
Frankie: And you certainly don't know Derek.
Cass: Oh, we've talked, too, several times.
Frankie: No, you didn't; you yelled. You never let him get a word in edgewise.
Cass: He grunted a few times.
Frankie: You cannot judge a book by its cover, Cass. If anybody should know that it's you.
Cass: I assume you're referring to Nicole. Frankie, you really could use a couple of lessons in being tactful.
Frankie: My point is that you are not exactly thrilled with life and love right now.
Cass: That has nothing to do my feelings about Derek.
Frankie: Great, then let your sister make her own decisions. He would be good for her.
Frankie: Just leave it alone. Whatever happens happens.
Cass: Derek is not the guy for Stacey.
Frankie: Derek is the guy who put himself on the line for Felicia. He is not a lightweight; he's got character.
Zack: I don't think either one of you have much of a say about this.
Cass: What, you're gonna tell me that she should go out with him now, too?
Zack: It doesn't matter what I think or what you think. I tried to interfere in Julie Ann's life, and it was a mistake.
Frankie: Derek has got character, Cass.
Cass: Well, then you date him, Frankie. If you're so crazy about him, grab him up.
Frankie: Look, I heard that you were the kind of man who gave people a chance.
Cass: Hey, this is my sister we're talking about here.
Frankie: Is it?
Frankie: Is it her, or is it you that's the problem?
Stacey: You need any help?
Derek: With what?
Stacey: With the door?
Derek: You're going to help me hang the door?
Stacey: Sure, why not? I'm very strong.
Derek: You are, huh?
Stacey: Yeah. Well, come on, what do you want me to do? Let's get to it.
Derek: Just stand by... and watch out.
Stacey: Come on, really, I want to help. What can I do?
Derek: Ok. In the tool box you'll find a flat-head screwdriver and a hammer. Go get 'em for me.
Stacey: I got 'em.
Derek: Thank you. And watch out, they're slippery.
Derek: Ok, when I ask you for one of those things, hand it to me.
Stacey: Ok, sounds easy enough.
Stacey: You're pretty good with your hands here.
Derek: Sometimes. And I have to be; it's how I keep food in my stomach.
Stacey: Oh, are you a carpenter?
Derek: I'm whatever I have to be--punched cattle in Arizona, ran a shrimp boat off Galveston. I even tapped for maple syrup in Vermont once--wasn't real good at it, though. Mostly I did construction.
Stacey: Is that what you like the best, construction?
Derek: Yeah, I like it because it's usually pretty easy to get a part of a crew, and it's outside and I like that a lot.
Stacey: Hey, maybe...
Stacey: Um, listen, I mentioned this to you before, but I do know people at Frame Construction.
Stacey: No, I don't want this to sound like I'm trying to lead your life along or any charity work, I don't want you to think like that.
Derek: No, I wasn't thinking anything. It's--I was just gonna say that Frankie already got me an interview with her aunt.
Derek: Yeah, and I got the job.
Stacey: Hey, that is great.
Derek: Thanks, anyway..
Stacey: Yeah. Hmm, isn't that nice of Frankie?
Vicky: I should shove this down your throat!
Jake: Will you keep your voice down!
Vicky: How could you get my best friend to spread lies about me? How could you get Amanda on this tape to say that I just got pregnant so Jamie would marry me?
Jake: Lies? Vicky, you--
Vicky: Jake, don't deny it. I've heard the whole thing.
Jake: Vicky, Amanda and I were just having a conversation. I had no idea the tape was--
Vicky: Stop it!
Jake: You can yell all you want!
Vicky: I will not let you prove that I'm an unfit mother.
Jamie: Well, that was Gonzalez on the phone. Apparently he had some sort of an emergency, and he said he'd call to reschedule. Sorry.
Russ: Forget about it. I really want your input about another matter, a foreign exchange-Jamie, revamping the whole foreign exchange.
Jamie: I'm sorry, what were you saying?
Russ: I'd like to open up some new places for two foreign doctors.
Jake: Listen, I know you are on edge.
Vicky: On edge?
Jake: What, with the paternity test just a couple weeks away--
Vicky: No, I'm not imagining this, Jake. You are out to get me!
Jake: I'm out to get you?
Vicky: You better watch out! I'm warning you, Jake, you just watch out!
Russ: The way I think we can really go about this--
Jamie: Excuse me, Russ. What is with you two?
Jamie: You are making quite a scene here.
Vicky: We're having a little argument, but it is under control, all right?
Jake: Listen to her--it is under control, Jamie.
Jamie: This is a public place. As far as most people are concerned, you're still my wife.
Jamie: Sorry, Russ. What were we talking about?
Russ: Forget about it. I can see you are upset, Jamie. I just want you to know that if there is anything that I can do...
Jamie: There is.
Russ: Name it.
Jamie: Russ, I know this is hard for you to talk about, but how did you feel when you found out that I wasn't your son?
Jamie: I'll bet.
Russ: I wanted a child very badly. I was ecstatic when Olivia came, even more so than I would have been otherwise.
Jamie: Because of what happened with me?
Russ: I know I've been a little bit overindulgent, but I'm trying to backtrack now. She's got this idea in her head about going to New York, you know, auditioning for a ballet. I told her there was plenty of time for that.
Russ: I just think, right now--she should be with her family right now... at least for the time being.
Jamie: Did you ever consider fighting for custody of me?
Jamie: I mean, when you found out.
Russ: I could have. Legally, you were my son. I was married to Rachel when you were born. I talked to a lawyer.
Jamie: But you didn't pursue it.
Russ: I was thinking of you, Jamie, not me. Why are you asking this?
Jamie: It's just since Mac died, Russ, I've been feeling a little cut loose.
Russ: I can understand that. I would have loved to have raised you as my own, but it seemed at the time that the best thing for you--for you would be for me to relinquish my claim.
Jamie: Were you ever sorry?
Russ: Sure, for myself. But then I'd look at you, and I'd know that I'd done the right thing.
Vicky: You've already ruined my marriage.
Jake: Oh, me--
Vicky: I will see you in hell before I let you take my son away from me.
Jake: You know something? You better hope your marriage with Jamie works out. Otherwise Marley and I will look like model parents in court.
Vicky: No, I will never let that happen, Jake. Never!
Nicole: She wouldn't do this.
Michael: Hey, Donna is just concerned about you.
Nicole: Oh, so she forces you to talk to me--
Michael: She didn't force me.
Nicole: ...Hoping that I'll cry on your shoulder and admit that I'm shattered.
Michael: Wait a minute, here. You've got to admit that there are certain realities that need to be faced.
Nicole: We can make our own reality.
Michael: Fine, it's just got to jibe with everybody else's.
Nicole: This is getting too philosophical for me.
Michael: Nicole, Donna tells me that you still think that Cass is gonna come back to you.
Nicole: I know he will. I just have to talk to him some more. As soon as he really understands--
Nicole: Don't tell me no.
Michael: No, he is not going to understand.
Nicole: You don't know that.
Michael: I know that he needs time to heal.
Nicole: Right, and then he will forgive me.
Michael: Honey, it's not that simple.
Nicole: Michael, he loves me.
Nicole: What, you don't think he does?
Michael: No, no, no, well, I wasn't going to say that.
Nicole: That's what you were thinking, wasn't it?
Michael: Well, it's just...
Nicole: You just want me to give up.
Michael: No, I don't. Believe me, I don't want you to give up. Donna doesn't want you to give up. We want you to get on with it. It's just that there are some things that you're going to have to accept have changed.
Nicole: Well, not everything.
Michael: Ok, not everything. I think that Cass probably still has feelings for you.
Nicole: He has never loved anyone the way he loves me; he told me that.
Michael: Right. Nicole, it's just that you lied to him about the circumstances of Jason's death.
Nicole: I was just protecting him.
Michael: Right. Then Felicia went to jail.
Nicole: He knows that I feel terrible about that. It was a mistake.
Michael: Honey, that's the point. It's not a mistake to him. You betrayed his trust.
Nicole: [Scoffs] I am so sick of this conversation. You know, you keep saying the same thing over and over and over.
Michael: Nicole, Cass, I don't think, is going to come back to you.
Nicole: Yes, he will. And I'm going to give him all the time he needs. I'm going to wait for him.
Michael: Now you look at me. Look at me.. You're going to have to face the truth. Cass is not coming back to you. It is over. You've got to face that.
Nicole: No. It is not over.
[Crying] No. No. No. No! No! It can't be over. It can't be over.
Stacey: Hey, you did it. Thanks.
Stacey: Hey, you want to take a break and have some lemonade? Frame Construction's gonna be lucky to have you.
Derek: We'll see.
Stacey: Frankie's been a pretty good friend to you, huh?
Derek: Yeah, she understands me.
Stacey: What, and I don't?
Derek: I didn't say that.
Stacey: Well, do you think I understand you?
Derek: I told you the other day, I don't want to put you and me in any kind of a category.
Stacey: Right. I don't want to do that either.
Stacey: [Sighs] I never met anyone like you, Derek. You are a hard person to get to know.
Derek: So I have been told.
Stacey: But you know something? I'd like to try..
Derek: You would?
Stacey: To get to know you? Yeah, I would.
Derek: Good lemonade.
Frankie: Is anybody home?
Stacey: [Sighs] We're in here, Frankie.
Frankie: Hey, the door was open downstairs--hey, that work-out you do must really work.
Derek: I was hanging a door.
Frankie: Yeah, well, bicep city, baby.
Stacey: Is there something that you want, Frankie?
Frankie: Well, it's Derek that I'm after. You ready for our date, big guy, huh?
Donna: Why did you let her leave?
Michael: What am I gonna do, body-block her, stop her?
Donna: But did you get through to her?
Michael: Honey, she still believes that Cass is gonna come back to her.
Donna: But did you convince her otherwise?
Michael: Hey, look, I did what I could, all right? She insists that Cass is madly in love with her. She broke down and cried in my arms.
Donna: She did?
Michael: She hasn't done that before?
Donna: No, not with me. She is always in control and up.
Michael: Honey, I've gotta tell you, in all the time I have known Nicole, I have never seen her act like this. I mean, she absolutely refuses to face the truth. She pretends as if nothing has changed.
Donna: I'm not surprised.
Michael: You're not?
Donna: No. She's been in denial her whole life. I survived our childhood because I looked at things realistically; Nicole has done just the opposite.
Michael: You think that's what she's done with Jason's death?
Donna: Yes. This has caused her to lose the relationship with Cass and she won't face it. I'm scared for her.
Nicole: I had to see you.
Cass: I don't want to go through this again, Nicole. I can't.
Nicole: But I'm not here to argue. I have a proposition for you. Would you just hear me out, please?
Jamie: Russ, you go on ahead. I'll catch up with you later.
Russ: Sure, take it easy.
Jamie: Yeah, thanks. Vicky. Vicky! Would you like a ride home?
Vicky: Thank you, Jamie, but I have to finish this.
Jamie: Suit yourself.
Jake: That's a bad move, Vicky. Personally, I would have gone with him.
Vicky: I am tired of your lies, Jake, and your threats. And I'm going to put an end to this.
Jake: You know what you better do? You better think before you really mess yourself up.
Vicky: Did you think I was just going to sit around and watch you do this to me? No. It's time Marley knows the truth about you just like I do.
Jake: You better think, Vicky. You're angry and you're not thinking straight, you know?
Vicky: I don't think so.. I think I've finally got it all figured out. I'm going to tell Marley. Get out of my way!
And I don't doubt oh, waterloo oh, waterloo everybody's got to meet their waterloo
Jake: Donna, it's Jake. Vicky is on her way to tell Marley.
Donna: What? What did you say to her?
Jake: You have to stop her; you are the only one that can.
Donna: Yes. Yes.
Jake: Look, I'll meet you there, all right?
Donna: No, don't do that. I would rather do it alone.
Michael: Who was that?
Donna: It was Jake.
Michael: Something wrong?
Donna: No, no, he reminded me that I have a lunch date with Marley.
Michael: You seem kind of upset for a lunch date. I mean, what is this about doing it alone?
Donna: Oh, it's just that he wanted to come to lunch with us, and I didn't want him to be there. Would you be a darling--tell Angela to please watch Michael Spencer? And I'll see you later.
Michael: Donna Hudson, wait...
Cass: Yeah, Jeff, I'm right in the middle of a meeting.. Can I get back to you? Great. Give me your number, please. 4-1-1-0, ok, it should be about 10 minutes. All right, thanks. Bye. Sorry.
Nicole: So, Frankie's working for you now, huh?
Cass: Yes, she is. What did you want to talk to me about?
Nicole: How is that going?
Nicole: Frankie? Is she doing a good job?
Cass: She is fine.
Nicole: Is she spending a lot of time with you here, and Zack?
Cass: Nicole, please. What did you come here to tell me?
Nicole: Uh, I'm giving up the design business.
Cass: Oh, Nicole, I'm very sorry to hear that.
Nicole: Well, there's been a lot of negative publicity lately and I, um--I just don't think it's worth it anymore.
Cass: Well, if you need any legal advice, I'd be glad to--
Nicole: No, Cass, I don't need advice. I want to give it to you.
Nicole: Well, the building, I mean. I heard that you've been looking for a new office space, and so I want you to have my share in the salon.
Cass: Oh, I don't know. Are you sure that that's what you want?
Nicole: It is the least I can do.
Cass: You don't owe me anything, Nicole.
Nicole: You'll have all the office space you need, and you won't have to live there wondering if I might walk in at any moment.
Cass: I don't know what to say. I'll have to think about it. Is that it?
Nicole: Um...yeah. Yeah, I guess it is. Cass, I miss you so much.
Cass: Please don't.
Nicole: From the minute I wake up until I close my eyes at night. Even when I sleep--my dreams, you're in them all, smiling, holding my face in your hands, telling me that everything is going to be all right.
Cass: I don't want to hear this.
Nicole: Do you think you could ever find it in your heart to forgive me?
Nicole: I know you didn't deserve what happened, but think of how happy we were together. Nobody could make me laugh the way you do or feel as warm and safe.
Cass: Stop it!
Nicole: [Crying] I'll always love you, Cass. Always.
Frankie: We are going out for a couple of drinks to celebrate Derek's new job.
Stacey: Yeah, I heard about that. Isn't that terrific?
Frankie: Mm-hmm. Want to come?
Stacey: Oh, no. Listen, three's a crowd.
Frankie: Not when it is us 3, or we 3--what is it?
Stacey: No, I've got a lot of work to do, so.
Stacey: Maybe next time, huh?
Frankie: Oh, come on, Stace. Seize the moment, there is only now.
Stacey: What are you talking about?
Frankie: Life, living, having fun. Don't you ever do anything without analyzing it?
Stacey: Well, yeah, of course I do.
Frankie: Yeah, like what?
Stacey: Well, I--
Frankie: [Laughs] See?
Stacey: Oh, come on, I haven't got time for this. This is ridiculous.
Frankie: Oh, look, Stacey, you've gotta hang loose mother goose. Be spontaneous, let things happen.
Stacey: I don't know. Do you really want me to come?
Frankie: Of course we do. Don't we?
Stacey: Well, then--well, what the heck? I'll come.
Frankie: Major breakthrough!
Stacey: Take it easy, take it easy. I'm going to go turn on my machine, I'll be back in a little bit.
Frankie: "I'm going to turn on the machine." Totally hopeless.
Jake: Michael, what are you doing here?
Michael: I just came down to pick up some take-out food. Got a little time to kill before it's ready.
Jake: What happened to your cook?
Michael: Day off. Jake, I was there when you called donna.
Jake: Let me see if I can get a rush on that order.
Michael: Hey, I tell you what. Why don't you just stay here and talk to me, all right? That is if you're not too busy.
Jake: What do you want to talk about?
Michael: Oh--how 'bout you?
Michael: Jake, I know that Donna doesn't give you very much credit.
Jake: I don't care.
Michael: Well, I do. I think you work hard. You work hard at showing Marley how much you love her, and I don't want anything to change that.
Jake: I won't.
Michael: You and Donna were arguing the other night, and she wasn't too happy when she got off the phone today.
Jake: She say anything to you?
Michael: No, I was hoping you would do that.
Jake: Well, like I told you, it was nothing.
Michael: Jake, I don't want Donna making any trouble for you and Marley--
Jake: She won't.
Michael: Yeah, right. Well, I don't know why she keeps after you; she won't tell me.
Jake: Michael, you know, it's just the same old thing, you know?
Michael: Yeah. Jake, you and Marley have enough to handle, all right? You've been a terrific husband. You're gonna make a terrific father--
Jake: If I get a chance.
Michael: You will, don't worry. I know these things, you will.
Jake: Did Donna leave right after I called you?
Michael: Yeah. It must've been a real important lunch she had with Marley, huh?
Jake: Well, you see what it is, I want Donna to trust me. I mean, she never thought I'd be good at anything, especially a husband. She was so sure I'd hurt Marley that--
Michael: Don't worry about that. Jake, I know that you would never do anything to hurt Marley. I know you love her. And deep down inside, Donna knows that, too.
Jake: I'm betting on it.
Waitress: Here's your take-out order, Mr. Hudson.
Michael: Thank you.
Jake: See you, Michael. Come on, Donna.
Donna: Now look at this. Fabulous designer swimsuits for 20% to 50% off. Can you believe that? Why don't we go take a look?
Donna: Oh, come on, Marley. You've always liked a good sale.
Marley: I have no desire to go shopping today.
Donna: Well, why don't we go get some ice cream sundaes?
Marley: I'm on a diet.
Donna: Well, how 'bout a drive to the beach?
Marley: The beach?
Donna: Yes, Michael and I are looking at some new property over at, uh, Treasure Cove, and we could go house hunting.
Donna: Well, I know what. We could go over to the club and play a round of tennis. We haven't done that in ages.
Marley: You hate tennis.
Donna: Well, I don't anymore.
Marley: Donna, I just got in.
Marley: So, I have no intention of going anywhere. Cheers.
[Knock on door]
Cass: It's open. Jamie.
Jamie: Oh, hi, Cass.
Cass: Come in.
Jamie: Listen, I would have called first, but I thought, perhaps, if you weren't busy I could talk to you.
Cass: I always have time to see my friends, Jamie. Please, sit down. Let me get those papers out of your way.
Jamie: Oh, thank you.
Cass: So, is this about the will? Is there some problem?
Jamie: No, no, I am sure you'll handle that as well as you've handled everything else you did for Mac.
Cass: I want you to know that he was a very special man to me.
Jamie: Thank you.
Cass: He was my hero. So this doesn't have anything to do with the will?
Cass: But it is a legal problem?
Jamie: Yeah, Cass, I'd better just come right out and say it. I have reason to believe that Steven may not be my son.
Cass: Well, go on.
Jamie: He, um-Vicky--I'm sorry, this is just kind of hard to talk about.
Cass: That's all right, take your time.
Jamie: It's a possibility that Jake McKinnon could be his father.
Cass: I see.
Jamie: Vicky admitted it was possible and a test confirmed that he may be.
Cass: May be, but it isn't positive yet.
Jamie: Well, it's coming. Jake and I had a genetic test done, and the results will be coming back in a few weeks.
Cass: And they'll be conclusive?
Cass: I knew something was going on. That's why I questioned Vicky and Jake--
Jamie: Well, I'm not here to talk about her, Cass.
Cass: No, of course not.
Jamie: What I want to know is--all I'm concerned about is what my rights are concerning my son...if he turns out to be mine.
Cass: You have the same rights that any father has.
Jamie: And I can fight for custody?
Cass: In the event that you and Vicky decide to get a divorce, absolutely.
Zack: Uh, Cass.
Cass: Hey, Zack.
Zack: Can I talk to you for a minute?
Cass: Uh, Zack, this is a private conversation.
Zack: Please. Excuse me, Jamie.
Cass: What's up?
Zack: We can't take Jamie's case.
Cass: We can't?
Jamie: Why the hell not?
Donna: I have an idea.
Donna: Let's go to the museum.
Marley: Actually, I have a better idea.
Marley: Why don't we go to paradise, pick up Jake, and all have dinner together?
Donna: That's a wonderful idea. That's perfect!
Marley: Now I know you're up to something.
Marley: You mean to tell me you're actually eager to go to dinner with Jake?
Donna: Oh, well, why not.
Marley: Because you don't like Jake. Now come on, tell me, why do you want to get me out of this house?
Stacey: Listen, I got several messages, and I won't be able to come.
Frankie: Oh, you're going to stay home and be responsible.
Stacey: I have work to do.
Frankie: Couldn't it wait just a couple of hours?
Stacey: No, I'm afraid not.
Frankie: Well, it is too bad. You're going to miss a good time.
Stacey: I'm sure.
Nicole: Frankie, I thought I heard your voice.
Frankie: Hello, Nicole.
Nicole: I just don't seem to be able to get away from you, no matter where I go.
Frankie: Well, I was just leaving.
Nicole: Stay. I came to tell Stacey something, but you can hear it, too, since you're working with Cass now.
Stacey: What was it you wanted to tell me, Nicole?
Nicole: I've decided to give Cass this building.
Stacey: Give it to him?
Nicole: We shared ownership. I'll sign over my half. I don't want to disrupt his life anymore than I have.
Stacey: That's very generous of you.
Nicole: I know Cass needs space--literally and figuratively.
Stacey: I don't know what to say. Thanks. Listen, why don't I make some coffee, and we can talk about this downstairs, all right?
Frankie: We ought to hit the road, Derek.
Nicole: Wait, Frankie.
Nicole: I'd like to talk to you. You have a couple of minutes, don't you?
Frankie: Sure. Yeah.
Nicole: Would you mind if we used your room, Stacey?
Stacey: Oh, no, go right ahead. Listen, I'll get the coffee started. Derek, come on.
Frankie: What is it you wanted to talk to me about, Nicole?
Nicole: My life. Why are you trying to destroy it?
Frankie: I'm not doing that.
Nicole: On my wedding day--on my wedding day, you ruin the most sacred thing, the only thing in my life--my relationship with the man I love.
Frankie: No, you did that, Nicole.
Nicole: Oh, shut up! I can't stand the sight of you!
Frankie: Well, I had better be leaving then.
Nicole: And now you are insinuating yourself into Cass' life.
Frankie: I don't know what you're talking about.
Nicole: I won't have it, do you hear me? I will not have it.
Frankie: No, let's get a few things straight here, sweetheart. You were the one who killed my uncle Jason.
Nicole: Yes, I did, and I have no regrets.
Frankie: You let an innocent woman take the blame.
Nicole: Jason was a monster. He deserved to die; he was threatening Cass. He may have even killed my mother! He was a monster.
Frankie: Look, Derek is waiting for me, ok?
Nicole: Oh, no, Frankie, you don't fool me with Derek. You don't fool me at all. You stay out of Cass' life. If you don't, you will regret it. This is my buddy.
[Knock on door]
Stacey: Frankie, you still in there? Derek's waiting downstairs for you.
Frankie: Has she gone?
Stacey: Nicole? Yeah, she left a few minutes ago.
Frankie: She is out of it, Stacey.
Stacey: What do you mean?
Frankie: She started blaming me for everything. She said all this crazy stuff.
Stacey: Well, she seems fine to me. I mean, better than she has in a while.
Frankie: I am telling you she is over the edge. She could be dangerous.
Frankie: You should have seen her.
Stacey: I did see her; she seemed ok to me. I mean, naturally she's upset.
Frankie: She is more than upset. She has gone over the edge or else she's snapped. She's this far away from it.
Stacey: Listen, you better hurry up here. Derek's getting a little impatient downstairs.
Frankie: Look, Stacey, I have got antenna that don't lie to me about things like this, and right now they are telling me that we had all better be very, very careful, especially Cass.
Jamie: Listen, I know your firm handles some of Vicky's business affairs, but this shouldn't be a problem.
Cass: No, not at all.
Zack: I'm sorry, it would be a conflict of interest.
Zack: I can't discuss it further.
Jamie: Why not, Zack? Come on, now, I need some help.
Cass: Zack, we owe Jamie a better explanation than this.
Zack: All right. When I came in, you were talking about possibly suing for custody of the child, right?
Cass: That's right.
Zack: We can't represent you on this, Jamie.
Cass: Come on, Zack, why not?
Zack: Because we're already representing Jake.
Marley: All right, come on, tell me what's going on.
Donna: I just want to spend time with you.
Marley: All of the sudden?
Donna: It's not all of a sudden; I've been thinking about this a lot lately. We don't ever do anything together anymore, and I miss you.
Marley: I just saw you yesterday.
Donna: But we didn't really get a chance to talk. Darling, please indulge me.
Donna: You'll go out?
Marley: Well, you don't seem to be taking the answer no.
Donna: Oh, I love you. Now seriously, where should we go?
Marley: Well, anywhere. Why don't we see if the museum is still open?
Donna: Fine, that's good. Oh, I'm sure it is. I'm dying to see that Japanese cloisonné exhibit, aren't you?
Marley: Vicky, what are you doing here?
