[Knock on door]

Jamie: Come in.

Rachel: Are you busy?

Jamie: Mom, hi. No, of course not. How are you?

Rachel: Ok. You look tired.

Jamie: Oh, me? I've just had a few late nights, that's all. I think Stevenís cutting a tooth or something because he's been up all night --

Rachel: Jamie --

Jamie: What?

Rachel: I know.

Jamie: Know what?

Rachel: About Steven.

Iris: Well?

Lucas: "Well," what, Iris?

Iris: Well, how did it go?

Lucas: It went fine.

Iris: And?

Lucas: Well, I think everything's going to turn out fine for everyone.

Iris: What did she say?

Lucas: Well, Rachelís pretty smart. She didnít say much.

Iris: Well, was she surprised to see you?

Lucas: I couldn't tell.

Iris: And that's all you're going to tell me, right?

Lucas: That's all there is to tell you.

Iris: Well, I listened to what you said about the fresh faces campaign, and I've made some notes.

Lucas: Good. Let me see them.

[Intercom buzzes]

Iris: Why donít you get the door, and I'll go get the notes.

Lucas: Fine.

Lucas: Oh, thanks. Thanks for sending her up.

Felicia: Hi.

Lucas: Hi.

Felicia: Well, I got everything.

Lucas: Oh, great. Did Palmer say he gave you all of the files?

Felicia: Well, these are all the files that he had in his office.

Lucas: Great.

Felicia: Well, where's Iris?

Lucas: She'll be out in a minute.

Felicia: Does she know that I'm meeting you here?

Lucas: No, no.

Felicia: I donít think this is such a hot idea, do you?

Lucas: No, no, come on. We've got to look in this. Somewhere in here could be the key to finding our daughter. Come on, come on. Here's one for you. Let's go. Let's get started.

Felicia: All right.

Iris: What - oh, Felicia. What a pleasant surprise. Again.

Josie: Oh, I'm sorry. Excuse me. Hi. I'm all finished.

Jill: How'd it go, Josie?

Josie: Oh, it went great.

Jill: I hope you didnít mind dying. We are trying to sell insect repellent.

Shannon: Did you have fun?

Josie: Oh, I've never been so humiliated in my whole life.

Shannon: Josie, you just filmed a commercial. Do you know how great that is?

Josie: I was just chased around the room by a giant arm with a big can of bug spray.

Shannon: Hey, do you know what you can say when you go home tonight?

Josie: Yeah, that I made my big debut as a coughing cockroach.

Shannon: You can say "I'm a working actor." Do you have any idea how many people in this town would give up their firstborn child to be able to say that just once?

Josie: Hundreds?

Shannon: Try thousands. You should be proud of yourself.

Josie: I should?

Shannon: Call your mom this time. She'll make you feel good. Moms love stuff like this.

Josie: I canít call my mom now. I donít know if I ever can.

Sharlene: What difference does it make?

John: How can you say that?

Sharlene: It doesn't matter who Josieís father is. It doesn't -- not to me, not to you, and certainly not to Josie.

John: Well, maybe it matters to him.

Sharlene: No, I canít.

John: Sharlene --

Sharlene: John, it's too complicated.

John: I thought you trusted me.

Sharlene: You know I do.

John: Then you tell me. Look, you've told me everything else about your life. It hasn't made any difference in how I feel about you. Why should this?

Sharlene: Russ Matthews is Josieís father

Matthew: Well, we donít have much of a selection. How's seltzer?

Mitch: Sounds good.

Matthew: It's good to see you.

Mitch: You, too. Not a bad place to -- to be for the summer.

Matthew: No. No, it's great.

Mitch: Plus, you have a companion?

Matthew: Yes. Olivia is not supposed to be here.

Mitch: No?

Matthew: No. And believe me when I tell you there is nothing going on between the two of us.

Mitch: You know, she didnít have to leave because I showed up.

Matthew: Oh, well, she's very impulsive.

Mitch: What, were you having an argument or fighting?

Matthew: Sort of, but, well -- well, she does certain things that I donít exactly agree with all the time.

Mitch: So how did the two of you end up as roommates?

Matthew: Well, Russ gave me the keys to the apartment.

Mitch: Your mom told me that.

Matthew: Yeah. And when I got here, Olivia was here.

Mitch: So does Russ know that the two of you are sharing the place?

Matthew: No, he doesn't even know she's here.

Mitch: Well, where does he think that she is?

Matthew: On a camping trip.

Mitch: The girl that I just saw is supposed to be a camper?

Matthew: Yeah, I -- I said the same thing, but apparently Russ bought it. She's here auditioning for some big ballet company, and Russ doesn't like that. Get the picture?

Mitch: Yeah, I guess so.

Matthew: Donít tell anyone when you get back, ok?

Mitch: I'm not going to say anything, but I donít like it.

Matthew: Well, I swear to you, I have nothing to do with it.

Mitch: So how are you doing?

Matthew: Good. Ok. I have enough money.

Mitch: But you haven't found Josie?

Matthew: No. I'm beginning to doubt if I ever will.

Mitch: Matthew, what is it -- why did she run away?

Matthew: Well, we got pretty close before she left Bay City. And I -- I donít think she was ready to handle it, and I swear, I didnít know she was going to react like this. You got to believe me on that.

Mitch: It's ok, it's ok. I'm not accusing you of anything. In fact, I'm proud of you.

Matthew: You are?

Mitch: Yeah. I mean, at least you're looking for her. A lot of other guys wouldnít have bothered.

Matthew: Well, she's all alone. She's not living in a place like this. She doesn't have money, friends. I get scared for her.

Mitch: I know.

Matthew: Listen --

Mitch: You remember the last time that we were in New York together?

Matthew: Oh, yeah. It was when I ran away and you came to find me.

Mitch: Seems like a long time ago.

Matthew: Mm-hmm. Did you just come to see me?

Mitch: Well, actually, yeah, but I've got to do a photo shoot later.

Matthew: For "Brava"?

Mitch: Well, it's for a magazine promotion that Iris is putting together. She wanted me to do it.

Matthew: What time is the shoot?

Mitch: Now -- in fact, I've got to get going.

Matthew: Do you need an assistant?

Mitch: Yeah, if you want to.

Matthew: Ok. You know, Iris was trying to get Josie to model. It's a long shot, but maybe she'll show up at this place.

Mitch: Let's go.

Matthew: Ok, let me change my clothes and I'll be right back.

Mitch: Uh, Matthew?

Matthew: Yeah?

Mitch: You know, there's something you might want to think about. If -- well, what if you find Josie and she doesn't want to come back?

Matthew: I'll make her see that we belong together. I'll make her understand.

Shannon: Things kind of rough at home?

Josie: Yeah.

Shannon: You look homesick.

Josie: Oh, I -- I am.

Shannon: Do you come from a big city?

Josie: No, I lived on a farm.

Shannon: Really?

Josie: Yeah.

Shannon: With horses and cows and stuff?

Josie: Yeah, the works. Yeah. There was a guy, too.

Shannon: A good guy?

Josie: The best.

Shannon: Then what are you doing here alone? I mean, do you know how hard it is to find one of those these days?

Josie: It just didnít -- it just didnít work out.

Shannon: I'm sorry. I donít mean to be nosy.

Josie: No. No, no. Hey, you're really the first person I've been able to talk to since I got to New York.

Shannon: What happened to your agent?

Josie: Who?

Shannon: Well, you know, the tall guy with the sunglasses.

Josie: Oh, Reuben. Oh, he's impossible, but he's really the only friend I've got now.

Shannon: Well, isnít your mom worried about you?

Josie: Yeah.

Shannon: Do you talk to her at all?

Josie: I've talked to her once. I really miss her.

Shannon: I wish I could say the same.

Josie: Where are you from?

Jill: Listen up, girls. The photographer from the fresh faces campaign is going to be here any minute. So if you need to fix your makeup, do it now. I'm only going to call your number once, and if you donít answer, you're out.

Josie: What's this all about?

Shannon: That poster. The new magazine that's looking for unknown beauties.

Josie: Oh. Well,

Shannon: I think it's called "Sophisticate."

Josie: Oh, no.

John: Russ Matthews is Josieís father?

Sharlene: Now do you understand?

John: No, no, I'm not sure I do.

Sharlene: I think I'd better start at the beginning, John.

John: Yeah, sounds like a good place to start.

Sharlene: He doesn't know.

John: I gathered that much.

Sharlene: He doesn't even suspect.

John: Well, what's the matter? Canít he count?

Sharlene: John, listen. I told you how he acted after he found out about me.

John: Yeah.

Sharlene: We were still living together, but it was awful. He wouldnít come near me. He couldn't come near me. And then one night everything was different. Everything -- he seemed to want me pretty badly. And then when it was over, he -- he reached for his wallet and he threw money at me.

John: He what? The good doctor threw --

Sharlene: The good doctor could not stomach it. He couldn't stomach me, John. And after that, I knew that I couldn't ever even try to work it out with him. I left town.

John: And you were pregnant?

Sharlene: I moved in with Emma, found out I was going to have a baby, and I never looked back.

John: Doesn't sound like you were looking at much of a future, either.

Sharlene: No, not here. My husband couldn't look at me, John. How could he be interested in a child he conceived when he was so -- so, John, I stayed away and I kept my secret. Until now.

Jamie: What do you know about Steven?

Rachel: I know about the paternity test.

Jamie: So Amanda told you, huh?

Rachel: Amanda knows?

Jamie: Well, who told you, then? Not Vicky?

Rachel: Yes.

Jamie: I donít believe her.

Rachel: I'm glad she told me. She was very straightforward about it. I wish you felt that you could've told me.

Jamie: She had no right to tell you.

Rachel: Why didnít you tell me?

Jamie: I didnít want to upset you, Mom.

Rachel: Honey, I'm your mother.

Jamie: Yeah, but you've had enough to deal with lately.

Rachel: Well, what about you? You've been dealing with this all by yourself.

Jamie: I'm ok.

Rachel: Are you?

Jamie: Well, I guess I feel a little stupid that-- a bit like the sucker after all the lies that have been told me.

Rachel: I'm sorry. I'm sorry you've had to go through this by yourself.

Jamie: Yeah, well, the test results -- they come in tomorrow. At least then I'll know one way or the other.

Rachel: She loves you. That's what she told me, and I believe her.

Jamie: It's a bit late for that.

Rachel: Why? What have you done?

[Knock on door]

Rachel: Are you expecting someone?

Jamie: No. Come on in.

Vicky: Hello, Rachel. Jamie.

Rachel: I'll -- I'll wait. I'll come back later.

Vicky: I know you're angry.

Jamie: You just donít stop, do you?

Vicky: Jamie, listen to me.

Jamie: No, you listen to me! How dare you use my mother to plead your case. How desperate are you?

Russ: Rachel.

Rachel: Hi, Russ.

Russ: Hi. Is everything all right?

Rachel: Uh, yes. I was just visiting with Jamie.

Russ: Oh, good, good. Then maybe you can tell me why it is that he seems to be under so much pressure lately.

Rachel: Well, why wouldnít he be? I mean, Mac was like a father to him.

Russ: Well, yes, I know, honey, but is that all that it is?

Rachel: Isnít that enough?

Russ: I donít mean to pry into his personal life, but, well, he is a doctor with very serious responsibilities.

Rachel: Is he making mistakes?

Russ: No, nothing major. Not yet.

Rachel: Well, he's having some personal problems right now, Russ.

Russ: I see.

Rachel: Funny how nothing changes but the date.

Russ: What do you mean?

Rachel: Oh, I feel as though I've just crashed into my past, and I donít like it any better than I did when I was going through it.

Felicia: Actually, Lucas asked me to meet him here, but we could go somewhere else, couldn't we?

Iris: Oh, no, please, feel free to stay here.

Felicia: Really?

Iris: Mm-hmm. By the look of those files, you're going to need some help to go through them.

Felicia: Oh, how nice, you'd like to help us.

Iris: Yes, if you donít mind.

Felicia: No, I think it's very generous of you, Iris. A little strange, but definitely generous.

Lucas: Excuse me, may I use the phone in the study, please?

Iris: Well, of course, Lucas. You know where it is.

Lucas: Thank you. Excuse me.

Felicia: Uh-huh.

Iris: Now, what are we looking for, hmm?

Felicia: Ok. Here are attorneys' files for adoptions.

Iris: Mm-hmm.

Felicia: You're to look for anybody by the name of Grady, or certainly a G for a last name, or any girl born April 4.

Iris: Ok. Mm-hmm. What a pity Vivianís not here. She adores mystery games.

Felicia: This is very important to me, Iris, as it is to Lucas. I hope you know that.

Iris: Oh, I'm sure it is, yeah.

Felicia: Uh-huh.

Iris: I bet you miss Mitch a lot.

Felicia: Yes, I certainly do.

Iris: It must be so difficult for you with him flying all over the world on those assignments and meeting all those wonderful, exciting people.

Felicia: Boy, you know, I'm sure you're trying to make some kind of a point here, aren't you?

Iris: Oh, no, not at all.

Felicia: No?

Iris: But he's just so attractive, isnít he?

Felicia: He is, isnít he?

Iris: Mm-hmm. And there I am, sending him off to photograph those beautiful, young models.

Felicia: You know, I know you're loving this, but believe it or not, that really doesn't bother me.

Iris: Good for you.

Felicia: Yes. Why donít we get back to these files, shall we?

Iris: Oh, yes.

Felicia: Of course, if this is making you very uncomfortable, I could certainly leave.

Iris: Oh, no, not at all.

Felicia: Good.

Iris: Felicia, I know how solid your marriage is. I mean, Mitch went through that awful trial with you, and now he accepts the fact that you had a child with another man and --

Felicia: Excuse me. Thank you.

Iris: I mean, no one could come between you two, could they?

John: What about this Lenny Bulger? How did his name ever end up on Josieís birth certificate?

Sharlene: I didnít -- I didnít stay with Emma long. I moved to California before I was even showing, and I got a job as a waitress. And that's where I met Lenny. I told him what had happened to me. He was a good friend.

John: He agreed to be a father?

Sharlene: Sort of, John. Lenny needed a place to stay. I was renting a trailer. I couldn't make ends meet, so he moved in as a friend. Lenny -- he couldn't hold a job down, and he got fired. And so pretty soon I was supporting the two of us. I had a baby on the way. It was a mess. It was a mess.

John: How long did he stay with you?

Sharlene: He left about a month before Josie was born. You should've seen the people come out of the woodwork then. They thought that he had gotten me pregnant and then -- and he took off. It was a good cover. It was a damn good cover, so I went with it.

John: And when you left Emmaís, she didnít know?

Sharlene: No, she didnít know. She thought it happened when I went out to California, too. Everything worked out perfectly. Except those last few weeks before Josie was born, I donít think I've ever been so lonely in my life. Except when Floyd died. I -- I didnít know when I was going to go into labor. I didnít know what would happen when I did. I didnít know how I'd get to the hospital. I was terrified that I'd have this baby and I wouldnít be able to take care of her. I even thought of giving her up for adoption for a while.

John: What changed your mind?

Sharlene: Oh -- I saw her. She had little -- little pink toes, hair that was like feathers, John. And I knew in that moment that I would -- I would do anything I had to do to keep her.

John: What about later? Hmm? It must have been so rough on you. Didnít you ever consider talking to Russ?

Sharlene: No.

John: I mean, I donít know much about the guy except that I think he's a real jerk. But even he would've helped you.

Sharlene: No, John, I couldn't talk to him. I could never have asked for his help.

John: Why?

Sharlene: Do you think that he would let his daughter be raised by me, an ex-prostitute? John, if Russ had ever known that Josie was his little girl, he would have taken her from me long ago. He can never know about this. John, this has to stay between you and me. You promise me.

Felicia: Lucas is not a part of my life anymore, at least not in that way.

Iris: But I didnít mention Lucas.

Felicia: Oh, but you didnít have to.

Iris: That's right, of course. He was your first love, wasn't he?

Felicia: Feelings can change, Iris.

Iris: Oh, I'm aware of that. But of course, when two people share something so precious as a child together --

Felicia: Can I ask you a question?

Iris: Of course.

Felicia: Why are you so interested in my relationship with Lucas? Unless, of course, you have designs on him yourself. Is that it?

Iris: Of course I do.

Felicia: Yes.

Iris: I need his undivided attention for "Sophisticate."

Felicia: Oh, yeah, of course. Strictly business.

Iris: Yes. I never mix business with pleasure. It's a dangerous combination.

Felicia: Yes, I know it is.

Iris: Oh, speak of the devil.

Lucas: Found anything?

Felicia: No. We had a few distractions.

Iris: But I think we're having excellent progress. Aren't we, Felicia? Hmm?

Shannon: Hey, you canít leave now.

Josie: I have to go.

Shannon: Why?

Josie: It's a long story.

Shannon: Wait. You know, Jill isnít going to like it if you just up and disappear. She really seems determined to get you more work. I've been trying to get her to notice me for weeks.

Josie: I really, really have to go. Good luck, Shannon. Good luck.

Shannon: Right. Maybe I'll see you around.

Jill: Oh, Mr. Blake.

Mitch: Hi. You must be Jill.

Jill: We're ready whenever you are.

Mitch: Just give us a couple of minutes to get set up, and we'll be ready to go.

Jill: Ok, why donít you go down the hall, the first door to the right?

Mitch: Thank you. Hello. Hi.

Matthew: Hi.

Mitch: How are you? Hello.

Jill: Ok, girls, let's line up in number order.

Shannon: He's really cute.

Jill: Just keep your mouth shut and smile, ok?

Shannon: How am I supposed to do both those things, Jill?

Jill: Everyone, in the green room.

Matthew: Did you see all the women out there?

Mitch: It's nice work if you can get it.

Matthew: I mean, they all look so anxious. It must be difficult to get work or something.

Mitch: It is.

Matthew: Now, I wonder if Josie has tried at model. I mean, she's as pretty as them.

Mitch: I know, Matthew.

Matthew: I got to find her, Dad. I need her.

Vicky: I just canít win with you, can I?

Jamie: No, you'll use anyone to get what you want, wonít you?

Vicky: You tell me not to lie anymore, so I tell the truth, and you're still ticked off.

Jamie: She's my mother, Vicky, and I decide what to tell her and when! She just lost her husband, for God's sakes!

Vicky: Well, I'm damned if I do and damned if I donít. I just donít do anything right.

Jamie: And whose fault is that?

Vicky: I donít want to talk about this anymore. I have more important things to discuss with you.

Jamie: Oh, yeah? Like what, Vicky?

Vicky: Like Marley has decided to support Jake in getting custody of Steven. Jamie, I donít know what to do.

Jamie: And I do?

Vicky: I donít want to fight with you anymore.

Jamie: I am sick and tired of fighting, myself, Vicky.

Vicky: I want you to know that I love you.

Jamie: Oh, come on, not again.

Vicky: And I am not going to leave you like all the others.

Jamie: What are you talking about?

Vicky: I know about Blaine and Cecile and Lisa.

Jamie: What on earth are you getting at anyway?

Vicky: Jamie, when you stopped me at the airport the other night, I realized that you need me.

Jamie: Oh, that had nothing to do with it, Vicky.

Vicky: Canít we try again, now that you know everything?

Jamie: I donít know that Steven is my son.

Vicky: But you'll know that soon. And even if Steven is Jakeís, it can still work out.

Jamie: What?

Vicky: Donít you remember all the happy times? Jamie, we can have that again, just the three of us. I know you still love Steven, whether he's your son or not. And I know you loved me once.

Jamie: Yes, once, I did.

Vicky: Well, that's why I'm here. Come home with me today.

Jamie: I'm living there.

Vicky: I mean really come home, so we can do this together. So we can make sure that Steven is with us where he should be.

Jamie: Why now, Vicky? What makes you think we can make this work after everything that's happened?

Vicky: I donít know! I just do. Jamie, come home with me today. Please? 

Jamie: I still have feelings for you, Vicky.

Vicky: And Steven?

Jamie: My feelings for Steven have never changed.

Vicky: It can work, Jamie.

Jamie: But I wonít be used again.

Vicky: I'm not doing that.

Jamie: And I know the reason you want us back together is so I can help you fight Jake and Marley.

Vicky: That's just part of it. I'm not denying that. But that's not why I'm here. I am here because I love you.

Jamie: After everything that's happened?

Vicky: Jamie, if all I cared about was keeping Steven, I would have left town the other night. But I stayed because I do want Steven. And I want you to raise him with me. Jamie, I love you. I love you. I canít imagine my life without you in it.

Jamie: There's just one problem, Vicky. I donít feel the same way.

Russ: Are you referring to Vicky and Jamie?

Rachel: It's pretty complicated.

Russ: You know, I mentioned to him not very long ago just how much Vicky reminds me of you when you were her age.

Rachel: She's not like me. Not at all.

Russ: Easy, honey. See, I meant it as a compliment.

Rachel: I'm sorry. Here you are being nice and I'm biting your head off.

Russ: Oh, donít worry about it. You go ahead, scream, holler, anything you want.

Rachel: It's not that bad, not yet.

Russ: I know how hard it's been for you. It takes a lot of time.

Rachel: Mac used to calm me down, you know? When I'd fly off the handle at home or at work or with him, he'd laugh at me or say something funny, and suddenly, whatever it was didnít seem so important. But mostly, he'd listen.

Russ: Yeah. You two were something very, very special together.

Rachel: Each day I -- I think I'm better, but -- and sometimes I wonder.

Russ: Well, you know, this is not the kind of thing you can put on a schedule, Rachel.

Rachel: Nope.

Russ: Look, I want you to remember that you can -- you can always talk to me, if it's of any value.

Rachel: Thanks.

Russ: And remember this, too -- you're a very, very strong woman, always were. That hasn't changed because Mac is gone.

Rachel: I donít feel very strong. I donít like being without him. I donít like it at all.

John: Sharlene, Josie is grown. Now it's time for everyone to know the truth. I wonít. I might not like the guy, but he does have a right to know.

Sharlene: John, he'll take her from me.

John: She's already gone! Look, there's nothing that Russ can do now. She's 18. She's an adult.

Sharlene: And when she finds out that I've kept this from her, she'll never come back! She'll never speak to me again!

John: Well, at least she'll know that her father wasn't --

Sharlene: That her father wasn't a trick? Well, wasn't he? What was I to him that night?

John: She deserves to know the truth.

Sharlene: Oh, John, donít you think I've thought of that? All these years, I've felt selfish keeping them apart. But I -- oh, God, I could just see Russ, with Liz right behind him, coming after us, taking away the one good thing I ever had in my life.

John: And he doesn't have any idea?

Sharlene: No. He and Liz both think she's younger than she is. They have no reason to question it.

John: Well, then, it's up to you, Sharlene. You're going to have to tell Russ and you're going to have to tell Josie.

Sharlene: Oh, God, John, have you not heard a word that I've said to you?

John: Sharlene, you're going to have to let go. You must tell the truth.

Josie: Hey, Reuben. Reuben?

Josie: Reuben? Oh.

[Music plays]

Woman: Hello. This is "the Lilly Girard show," the call-in show for all of you. You know, today I'd like to talk about people who feel alone. I'd like you to call me right over here at 555-3621. It's time to share those feelings. Sometimes you feel a little better if you have someone to talk to, and that's what we're here for. We'll listen. My name is Lilly Girard, and the number is 555-3621. Give us a call. I think maybe we could help.

Matt: Hi.

Woman: Hi.

Matt: I just had to go out to the car to get some batteries for the camera. Well, we'll be with you in a minute. He's in there right now --

Woman: Uh-huh.

Matt: Ok. Take care. See you. Bye.

Woman: Bye.

Mitch: Very nice, Shannon, very nice. Here you go. Thank you, assistant. Ok, could you maybe turn to your left, please --?

Shannon: Sure.

Mitch: And look over your right shoulder? That's very nice, very nice. Nice, nice. Just one or two more.

Shannon: How am I doing?

Mitch: You're doing just fine, just fine. In fact, that's it. Thank you, Shannon.

Shannon: That's it?

Mitch: That's it. You did very nicely.

Shannon: Thank you.

Mitch: In fact, would you tell the next model it'll be about five minutes?

Shannon: Yeah, sure.

Mitch: Thank you.

Shannon: Thanks, Mr. Blake.

Mitch: Good luck.

Shannon: Thank you.

Mitch: No sign of Josie?

Matt: No. No, wishful thinking. I donít know why I thought she'd be here today.

Mitch: Well, you know, it was a good hunch.

Matt: No, I'm worried about -- what's she doing, where is she, who's she hanging out with.

Mitch: Look, I know, Matthew. Do you mind if I tell you something?

Matt: What?

Mitch: You know, I know what it's like to want to be with somebody as bad as you want to be with Josie.

Matt: Dad, I love her.

Mitch: I know, and I loved your mom, and there were a lot of things that I wanted, a lot of things I wanted her to feel, but it just didnít happen.

Matt: This is different. Josie loves me. She's confused now.

Mitch: You know what? Sometimes the best thing to do is just to let go. You know, Josie came to New York for a reason. Not seeing you might have been one of those reasons. It might be what she needs.

Matt: No, I donít believe that, Dad.

Mitch: Look, I'm not trying to be hurtful. I'm just trying to tell you.

Matt: Ok. I donít know what you want me to do. I canít just walk away. I think I deserve to know her reasons, donít I?

Mitch: Yes, yes. But you canít just make her feel a certain way. That's not going to work out.

Matt: Ok. Is that what you did with Mom?

Mitch: Yeah, I guess I did, to a certain extent. I was so wrapped up in the way that I felt, I was blind to what she was feeling, and we were together for a long time. We were very close. But she loved Mac, and it took me a long time to accept that.

Matt: Yeah, but this is different.

Mitch: How?

Matt: There's no other guy.

Mitch: Are you sure?

Matt: Yes!

Mitch: Just asking.

Matt: The problem with me and Josie is that she's dealing with who she is and where she comes from. She has some idea that I'm too good for her.

Mitch: And she's still very young.

Matt: And she loves me.

Mitch: Look, Matthew, you know, that's not enough sometimes. I'm sorry, that's not all of it.

Matt: Well, it's going to have to be enough because I'm not giving up.

Mitch: Matthew, I know that the last few weeks haven't been easy on you. I know that it's been rough with Macís death. But sometimes when you're close to somebody and they're not there, you just canít keep pretending. Sometimes you've got to let go. Maybe that's what you need to do with Mac. Maybe that's what you need to do with Josie.

Matt: I lost Mac. I'm not going to lose Josie.

Mitch: Ok. I just want you to be prepared. I want you to take care of yourself.

Matt: How do I do that?

Mitch: You be smart and you just, you know, sometimes have to get a little harder. Donít lose your heart, you know.

Matt: Dad, if I lose Josie, that is exactly what's going to happen.

[Knock on door]

Mitch: Ok, I've got to get back to work.

Matt: Ok. I'll get it.

Woman: Hi.

Mitch: Hi.

Woman: I'm next.

Mitch: Come on in. Hi. What's your name?

Woman: Kristine --

Mitch: Kristine.

Kristine: Or Kristina -- whichever sounds best.

Mitch: "Kris" is fine, "Kris" is fine. In fact, my name is Mitch. If you would, if you need to do any touch-up or something, I'll be with you in just a minute.

Kristine: Ok.

Mitch: Thank you. Look, I'm just trying to help.

Matt: I know, I know. Listen, I'm going to take off now, ok?

Mitch: Ok, I appreciate your being here, helping me.

Matt: Yeah. I'm going to go back to the apartment, and there's bound to be some call-backs about Josie.

Mitch: Are you ok?

Matt: Yeah. I will be when I find Josie.

Mitch: Ok, well, just take care of yourself.

Matt: I will. Listen, tell Mom I love her and not to worry, ok?

Mitch: Ok. Kris? You ready? Ok. This is very simple, actually. It's really quite painless. Here we go. Nice smile, nice smile.

Felicia: Nothing.

Lucas: I was sure there would be something in these.

Felicia: Well, you know, Palmer said that there might be more folders.

Lucas: Well, get on him right away.

Felicia: Thank you for your help, Iris.

Iris: Oh, it was my pleasure.

Felicia: Next time we'll meet at my apartment, all right?

Lucas: I already had an appointment with Iris, that's all.

Felicia: I know. You'll call me the minute you talk to Palmer?

Lucas: Of course.

Felicia: All right. Iris.

Iris: Felicia, it's quite a treat.

Felicia: Treat, you.

Lucas: You were deep into something when I came in.

Iris: Oh, you know, just old friends catching up.

Lucas: Oh, "friends"?

Iris: Do I have to remind you that I was kind enough to a allow you to do your little project in my home?

Lucas: Iris, finding my daughter is the most important thing to me. You're going to have to accept that. Otherwise, we canít work together. Understood?

Iris: Of course.

Lucas: Understood?

Iris: Understood.

Lucas: Fine. We'll talk.

Iris: Lucas, I just -- I just want you to be happy.

Lucas: Thank you, Iris. Bye-bye.

Iris: Whatever it takes.

John: Listen to me for a minute, Sharlene. Matt Cory is in New York, and he'll find Josie, but he's going to need all the ammunition he can get to bring her home.

Sharlene: "Ammunition"?

John: If she thinks her father is someone who paid you -- no wonder she ran away.

Sharlene: It must be that, John.

John: Of course it is, but she has to know the truth. She has to understand. That's the only way she'll ever forgive you.

Sharlene: She has to forgive --

John: But she wonít be able to until she knows the truth. And she canít believe that her life is part of this lie, that she owes her very existence to it.

Sharlene: But, John, that is so wrong! You know --

John: Of course it's wrong! You know that and I know that, but Josie doesn't know that. And that's what she canít live with. But you can fix it.

Sharlene: I donít think I can fix anything, John.

John: Why not?

Sharlene: Oh, ok. Ok, she'll know that her father wasn't one of those men. But then she'll resent me the rest of her life because I wouldnít let her know her own father.

John: And that's a risk you're going to have to take.

Sharlene: John, if she came home and then she left again, I --

John: Listen, she's not coming home without a fight.

Sharlene: I canít lose her again, John! I canít -- I canít live without her in my life anymore! I want my baby back! I just -- I just want her back.

Lilly: I think you need to open yourself up more. Take more chances. If you're bored, do unboring things. You know what I mean.

Woman: Easier said than done.

Lilly: Do you want to change your life?

Woman: Yes, but I need somebody to help me.

Lilly: I'm afraid no one can do that for you, ok? Thanks a lot for calling.

Lilly: I'm Lilly Girard, and let's take our next call. Hi. You're on the air. Hello? Anyone out there? Hello? Are you there? I hear you breathing. One more time. Hello.

Josie: Hi.

Lilly: There you are. I thought I lost you.

Josie: I'm sorry. I just -- I felt a little funny all of a sudden.

Lilly: Well, what would you like to talk to me about tonight? I'm Lilly Girard.

Josie: I'm new in town.

Matt: Couldn't be.

Lilly: No wonder you're calling. New York's not easy on newcomers, is it?

Josie: Oh, it's a lot harder than I thought it would be.

Matt: Josie? Josie!

Lilly: Do you have any friends in town?

Josie: No. You see, I -- I really miss my boyfriend.

Matt: Josie! It is Josie! What's the number? What's the number?

Lilly: Aha. Love trouble. I knew it. By the way, this is Lilly Girard. Dial 555-3621 if you're --

Matt: Thank you, thank you, thank you. 555-3212 -- 6 --

Lilly: Look, why donít you ask your boyfriend to come visit you here?

Matt: What? I'm in here! I'm here! I'm here!

Josie: I canít. We didnít leave on very good terms.

Lilly: What happened?

Matt: What happened? Tell me.

Lilly: Wait, wait. Hang on. Is this a love problem, or is it something to do with --

Matt: Come on, she knows I love her!

Josie: It's really, really hard for me to talk about.

Lilly: Well, that's the beauty of radio, you know? No one knows who you are.

Matt: It's Josie. It's Josie! Would you answer the phone?

Josie: This isnít a good idea.

Lilly: I haven't lost a patient yet.

Josie: I'm not a patient.

Lilly: I'm only kidding. I'm trying to get you to relax.

Matt: Get her to relax. Stay on the phone -- get her -- answer the phone, you moron!

Josie: I'm really homesick.

Lilly: Well, why donít you call him tonight?

Matt: Donít call me at home. I'm here, not at home.

Josie: I canít, I canít. I have to go.

Matt: No! Donít go. No. Wait.

Lilly: No, no, wait, wait, at least give me your name. If you want to talk to me privately, you can call and ask for me, but I do need to have your first name.

Matt: Josie, Josie --

Josie: My name's --

Matt: Josie Watts, Josie Watts, Josie --

Josie: Riviera. I have to go.

Lilly: Ok. Hello, you're on the air.

Matt: Riviera, wait! No, donít go, Josie! Josie! Josie! Donít go. Josieís here. She misses me, and she's homesick! Josie, donít you realize how much I love you?

Vicky: You just canít give an inch.

Jamie: We're talking about our lives here, Vicky, about Stevenís life.

Vicky: That's right.

Jamie: I canít. I just canít do it.

Vicky: There's nothing I can say to you, is there?

Jamie: No. No, there isnít.

Vicky: My father told me that love just isnít enough sometimes. I guess he was right.

Jamie: No, he wasnít.

Vicky: Well, then, how come I canít love you enough, Jamie?

Jamie: You donít know what love is, Vicky. You think you do, and that's the saddest part of all.

Rachel: Hi.

Vicky: Oh, hi.

Rachel: I just saw Bridget. She was bringing him in for his checkup?

Vicky: Yeah.

Jamie: Hey, hey.

Vicky: Come here, sweetheart.

Jamie: Let me hold him just for a minute here, come on. Let me see you. Hi, big fellow. Hello. How are you? Yeah. Hey, I tell you what -- let me take him to his appointment and I'll bring him home in about an hour or so, ok? Hi! How are you?

Vicky: I'll meet you at home.

Jamie: Hello. Yes, God, you're getting so big and strong.

Rachel: It's a beautiful baby.

Jamie: He's an angel. He's just an angel.

Rachel: Are you all right?

Jamie: Mom, somehow I've got to find a way to make everything right. Somehow I'm going to do that. Somehow.
