Sharlene: Here are the projected start dates I wanted to show you.

John: Pour the foundation on Monday?

Sharlene: Yeah, Tuesday at the latest.

John: Well, that's -- that's two days ahead of schedule, isnít it?

Sharlene: Well, yeah, and then we can get started on the preliminary plumbing. And then I was hoping that if we get the --

John: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a minute, wait a minute. You mean to tell me that we are actually ahead of schedule?

Sharlene: Yeah. Yeah, and also I wanted to go over the day-to-day breakdown in more detail. That's before I actually get it typed up for distribution. You see, I donít see --

John: Hold it, hold it, hold it.

Sharlene: What?

John: You're not giving me a chance to thank you.

Sharlene: For what?

John: All this great work you're doing.

Sharlene: Gee, you donít have to thank me. I'm your partner. It's my job.

John: Oh, yes, I know, but this is kind of above and beyond, and I just wanted to show my appreciation.

Sharlene: Well, you have a very -- a very unprofessional way of showing that.

John: Well, I've got an idea.

Sharlene: Hmm?

John: What do you say we shut this place down and get real unprofessional for a while?

Sharlene: John?

John: Hmm?

Sharlene: The crew is waiting outside.

John: What are you doing, trying to be sensitive or something?

Sharlene: I am, because one of the guys is headed here right now. Seriously.

John: Oh, that's just -- all right, I'd better be going. But what do you say we get together for lunch and try this unprofessional business again?

Sharlene: You're on.

John: Ooh.

[Door opens]

Sharlene: What did you forget?

Russ: Not a thing.

Sharlene: Russ.

Russ: I'm leaving for New York today. I wanted you to know.

Sharlene: New York?

Russ: Yes. I'm going to find Josie. I want to see my daughter.

Cass: Yeah, the trade winds are gently ruffling the palm fronds, and -- let me see. Oh, yeah -- my, my, my -- the Caribbean is its usual brilliant crystal blue. Another ho-hum day here in Paradise.

Stacey: Oh, Cass, it sounds like you got some tough duty down there.

Cass: Oh, I'm telling you, Stace, it's hell, but somebody's got to do it.

Frankie: Well, look, I hate to drag you away from all of that, Cass, especially since you only have a few hours left, but --

Cass: Donít worry, Frankie, I'll make the most of them.

Frankie: Yeah, right. Well, there are some new developments in the Lucas case. That's why I needed to speak to you.

Cass: Tell me about them, all right? That's one thing about doing nothing here. Your brain turns to papaya --

Stacey: Cass?

Frankie: Are you there?

[Phone hangs up]

Stacey: Hello, Cass?

[Dial tone]

Frankie: Cut off.

Cass: What are you doing here?

Singers: Wonderful life

Singer: And it's a

Singers: Wonderful life

Amanda: Oh! Sam, what are you doing?

Sam: Ah, your back is so warm and soft.

Amanda: Your hands are freezing! Get them off me!

Sam: I'm just trying to get dry.

Amanda: Did you ever hear of a towel?

Sam: Didnít bring one. I thought a hug would do.

Amanda: Oh, no, no. Alli, tell Daddy to stop, ok?

Sam: If you donít give me a hug, guess where you're going.

Amanda: You are not going to throw me in that water.

Sam: Yes, that's exactly what I'm going to do.

Amanda: No.

Sam: Uh-huh. And it's cold, too.

Amanda: No.

Sam: You're right, you guessed it.

Amanda: Donít you dare!

Sam: Well, then get over here. Put your arms around me, dry me off. Otherwise, in the pool.

Amanda: Ok.

Sam: Ah.

Amanda: Aah! There.

Sam: Now, was that so bad?

Amanda: I'm soaking wet. Now I have to go change my shirt.

Sam: What a shame.

Amanda: Thank you very much.

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Rachel: Excuse me, you two. Time-out.

Amanda: Mom.

Rachel: Good morning.

Sam: Morning.

Rachel: Listen, you two had already gone to bed last night. Something happened. I wanted to fill you in.

Amanda: Jamie, what are you doing here so early? Did you spend the night?

Jamie: I've moved in.

Amanda: With Steven? Oh, Jamie.

Jamie: I just hope Mom doesn't really mind having two toddlers hanging around the house.

Rachel: Oh, I'm going to love it.

Amanda: Alliís going to love it, too.

Sam: I was wondering something. What does Vicky feel about all this?

Vicky: Yeah, well, if Jamie thinks he can take Steven away from me, he's got another thing coming.

Donna: Michael, what are we going to do? He took Steven. Why did you let him do that? Why didnít you stop him?

Vicky: I was in shock, mother. I didnít realize it was actually happening.

Donna: Well, he's not going to get away with this. Tell her that he's not going to get away with this.

Vicky: I already went over to the Coryís', but they practically set the dogs on me.

Donna: Well, we have to help her. We have to do something to help this child.

Vicky: I called a lawyer.

Donna: Who?

Vicky: This guy's name is Kenneth Martin.

Donna: I know Kenneth Martin, but he's a divorce lawyer.

Vicky: No, he also handles child custody. He's going to be over here in a few minutes.

Donna: Poor Steven. He's probably hysterical.

Vicky: Please donít.

Donna: He's an innocent victim. He's wondering where his Mommy is.

Vicky: Mom, I canít think about that right now.

Donna: Well, I'm going to call Rachel. Surely she could not condone this.

Vicky: No, I donít want you to do anything. I want to know where you stand.

Donna: Where we stand? How could you ask us where we --

Vicky: I am talking to Dad. Now, I know you haven't approved of the way I've handled things lately. But are you on my side?

Donna: Of course he's on your side. He's your father.

Vicky: Mom. Are you going to support me? Are you going to help me get Steven back?

Sharlene: You're going to New York?

Russ: Yes, I need to talk to my daughter.

Sharlene: And what about what she needs?

Russ: Josie needs to be told the truth.

Sharlene: No, not that way. Not from you, Russ.

Russ: Oh, forget it. I've made up my mind, Sharlene.

Sharlene: No, Russ, wait, please. Donít you think it would be better if you and I talked to her together? It would be easier for her.

Russ: Easier for you, is what you mean.

Sharlene: No, my only concern is for my daughter.

Russ: Oh, I find that very hard to believe.

Sharlene: Russ, she has been my whole life. She's more important to me than anyone.

Russ: Well, then why the hell have you lied to her for so long?

Sharlene: I have suffered enough from my mistakes, and so has my daughter. That's why you will agree not to say anything to her until she's home and the three of us can sit down together and talk this out, Russ.

Russ: You are not making the rules, not any longer, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Russ, she will be devastated.

Russ: Well, I'll take that risk.

Sharlene: Russ, wait, please!

Russ: I'll be in touch.

Sharlene: Russ, just hear me out!

John: Sharlene, what's going on? What does he want?

Sharlene: I donít know. I didnít think things with Russ could get any worse, but they have.

Amanda: Who cares what Vicky thinks?

Rachel: Amanda.

Sam: She is Stevenís mother, Amanda.

Amanda: Biologically.

Sam: Oh, come on.

Amanda: Since when do you sit in judgment on my brother?

Sam: That's not what I'm doing.

Amanda: Jamie has as much a right to raise this child as Vicky does.

Sam: Oh. So she should have no say at all, is that it?

Amanda: Not after the way she's jerked everyone around.

Sam: That's not the point.

Rachel: No, it isnít the point.

Amanda: The point is, she's probably relieved. Now she can have her freedom.

Sam: How could she be relieved, Amanda?

Jamie: No, she's not relieved. She's very angry and upset.

Amanda: She'll get over it.

Jamie: I donít think she'll get over it, Amanda. She wants -- she wants Steven back.

Rachel: She's Stevenís mother. She wants to be a part of his life, and she has a right to. Jamie is perfectly willing to give her ample visitation rights.

[Steven sneezes]

Jamie: Yeah.

Rachel: Bless you.

Amanda: Not custody, I hope.

Jamie: No, never that. I will never give her custody of Steven.

Amanda: You wonít have to, Jamie. Nobody in their right mind would choose Vicky over you.

Jamie: I hope you're right.

Amanda: Stevenís very lucky to have you. And I'm very glad that you made this step. Sam will be, too, once he thinks about it.

Sam: Please, please, donít tell me what I will be.

Jamie: Oh, Sam, she's just being protective of her brother.

Sam: I know that. Look, I donít want you to get the impression that I'm not on your side. I'm just not on anybody's side.

Jamie: I know that.

Sam: I remember a time when Vicky was a good friend to Amanda and me.

Jamie: So do I.

Sam: I'm sorry your marriage has to end in a custody battle. I'm sorry it has to end at all.

Jamie: I'm sorry, too. Seems like only a few months ago, when everything was -- yeah, right. Never mind. That doesn't do any good.

Rachel: It doesn't do any good. The important thing is we're a family and we take care of each other.

Jamie: I'm counting on that.

Rachel: Yeah. And as long as we're together, we can get through it. We can handle anything.

Amanda: Including Vicky.

Vicky: Dad, are you going to help me?

Michael: You know, you're right, Victoria. I have not approved of the way you've handled things lately. But I will be damned if I will let Jamie take your son from you.

Vicky: Oh, God.

Donna: Oh, thank God.

Michael: We are going to fight for Steven with everything we have. And I want you to know that I know you've been alone through most of this, but not anymore. We are going to fight and we are going to win.

Donna: I knew it. I knew you'd be with us.

Michael: But I want you to know that I'm not behind you because of what Jamie has done.

Donna: You donít think he's justified in what he did?

Michael: No, I donít, Donna. I just want you to know that's not why I'm supporting you.

Donna: You're supporting her because you're her father and --

Michael: Donna, stop. I'm supporting you 100% because I've watched you the past few months. And I think you'll make the best mother in the world. You'll make a great parent, and you deserve to have your son with you.

Vicky: Oh, God, I love you.

Donna: Yes, she does, and she will.

[Doorbell rings]

Donna: Hello, how are you?

Man: Hi. Kenneth Martin.

Vicky: Oh, this is Kenneth Martin.

Donna: Hi, how are you? Please come in. Victoria told us that you called.

Michael: Hi. Michael Hudson.

Vicky: Hi.

Michael: This is my daughter Victoria.

Vicky: Hi.

Michael: And you've met my wife, Donna.

Kenneth: It's a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Hudson.

Vicky: Well, thank you for coming over so quickly.

Michael: Have you been filled in on all the details?

Kenneth: Yeah, Victoria -- I interviewed her over the phone.

Donna: And what do you think?

Kenneth: I think we have an excellent chance.

Vicky: My husband is from the most powerful family in Bay City.

Michael: One of the most powerful families in Bay City, thank you very much. The Hudsonís can play hardball, too. Now, what's next?

Kenneth: Ok, I've drawn up a complaint.

Vicky: All right.

Kenneth: I just need you to sign a few papers, Victoria.

Vicky: Oh, show me where.

Kenneth: Ok. There's an x at the bottom of each copy.

Vicky: You have a pen?

Kenneth: Here.

Vicky: Thank you.

Kenneth: And as soon as we have that out of the way, you can begin the process to reclaim your son. My life goes a million miles a minute.

Sam: Come here, Alli. Guess what -- you're no longer the low rung on the totem pole. There's actually somebody here who's smaller than you are. Look! Baby Steven.

Jamie: And he might even let you boss him around a little bit, too.

Amanda: Well, maybe for a year or so.

Rachel: Oh, she's going to love having him. We all are.

Vicky: Get away from me, Hilda! I can come in here whenever the hell I want to come in here! I have a right to see my son!

Hilda: What has gotten into you?

Rachel: It's all right, it's all right.

Hilda: I'm sorry, Mrs. Cory. They just forced their way in here and --

Vicky: Oh, my God.

Amanda: You are not wanted here.

Vicky: I am his mother, Amanda!

Michael: Calm down. Just calm down.

Amanda: You canít just come barging into this house like this.

Rachel: Amanda, let's find out what's going on.

Jamie: I think I've already figured that out.

Vicky: That's him.

Jamie: Amanda, please? Thank you.

Jamie: I have to appear in court in a little over an hour.

Amanda: Today?

Michael: Victoria's seeking a temporary injunction to order Jamie to return Steven to his home --

Jamie: No way!

Michael: Until a permanent custody hearing can be had.

Jamie: This gives me no time to prepare.

Vicky: Well, that's exactly how I felt last night when you took my baby away from me.

Jamie: Oh, your baby?

Vicky: Yes, Jamie! I am his mother, and I deserve to be with him!

Jamie: And a good mother you are, too! You didnít even know who his father was until a week ago!

Rachel: Jamie, stop it. Enough of it. Who's representing you?

Vicky: Kenneth Martin.

Amanda: Oh, perfect. He gives new meaning to the word "shyster."

Rachel: Amanda.

Michael: Victoria is here because she is Stevenís mother. She is going to fight for him, and the Hudson family will stand behind her 100%. Now let's go.

Vicky: Honey? Honey, you are going to be home with your mommy before this day is through. I love you.

Michael: We'll see you in court.

Rachel: Well, she certainly got a hearing quickly.

Jamie: Would you take care of Steven for a minute? I'm going to call Stacey.

Amanda: You donít think there's a chance that Vicky could win, do you, Mom? Mom?

Rachel: What?

Amanda: Vicky -- you donít think she could have any kind of chance --

Rachel: Of course she could.

Amanda: Jamie will win.

Rachel: I think he'd better.

Amanda: What?

Rachel: The way Vicky is feeling right now -- if she wins, she will do everything she can to keep Jamie from that baby.

Cass: Business?

Caroline: Of course.

Cass: You came all the way to St. Martin on business?

Caroline: And you donít believe me?

Cass: Well, St. Martin is hardly the hub of the art world, Caroline.

Caroline: There is such a thing as Caribbean art, you know.

Cass: And you came all the way here on sort of a scouting expedition, is that it?

Caroline: Exactly.

Cass: Well, that is quite a coincidence, isnít it?

Caroline: Hmm. I was walking on the beach, and I really thought that my eyes were playing tricks.

Cass: No, no tricks. Just me.

Caroline: It's rather a pleasant surprise.

Cass: How long are you planning to scout around?

Caroline: Actually, I've finished. I'm heading back to Bay City on the afternoon flight.

Cass: No.

Caroline: What?

Cass: Well, that's my flight.

Caroline: Remarkable.

Cass: That's incredible.

Caroline: Well, it's great for me, you know, because I hate flying alone.

Cass: I'll bet you do.

Caroline: And why are you looking at me like that for? Hmm?

Cass: I'm flattered. It's my flattered look.

Caroline: And how are you flattered?

Cass: Well, I mean, a beautiful woman follows me all the way down to the Caribbean.

Caroline: Now, let's not jump to any outrageous conclusions, ok?

Cass: Oh, I wouldnít dream of jumping.

Caroline: If I followed you down -- and "if" being the underlying word --

Cass: Mm-hmm.

Caroline: Can you really say that you're unhappy to see me? You're looking rather rosy, Cass.

Cass: Rather rosy?

Caroline: Red, sunburned.

Cass: Nutmeg brown. It's the result of two weeks of basking.

Caroline: Well, I was going to offer to, you know, put some suntan lotion on you if you like.

Cass: Oh, you were, were you?

Caroline: Mm-hmm, because the sun can be very deceptive to you.

Cass: Can it?

Caroline: Mm-hmm. And if we're not careful, we can end up with permanent skin damage. We wouldnít want that, would we?

Cass: No, we -- we would not want that, no. Definitely not.

Caroline: Well, then why donít you turn over? I want to work on your back first.

Caroline: Hmm. That's right. Now --

Caroline: How does that feel? Cool?

Cass: That's not the first word that pops into my mind.

Caroline: Good.

Cass: You have wonderful hands, Caroline.

Caroline: What do you say we get out of the sun entirely and go inside?

Cass: Why, Caroline, whatever are you suggesting?

Caroline: Darling, sometimes on the islands some very mysterious and wonderful things happen.

Frankie: What, do they have special hours for the phone down there?

Stacey: Just give it a break, Frankie.

Frankie: I canít even get the overseas operator back.

Stacey: Cass is going to be home this afternoon.

Frankie: I need to speak to him before then. Come on, St. Martin!

Derek: Stacey.

Frankie: Hi, Derek.

Derek: Hi, Frankie.

Frankie: Well, there's still no answer, so I guess I can call back in a few minutes. In the meantime, I think I should -- what did I do with those papers? I think I left them in the other room. I think I'll go in there.

Stacey: So, what are you doing?

Derek: I wanted to see you, talk to you.

Stacey: About what?

Derek: Yesterday.

Stacey: Yeah, I'm listening.

Derek: I put my foot in it again, and I'm sorry.

Stacey: You can trust me. When are you going to believe that?

Derek: I do believe it. It's just that when I start talking with you, the words get in the way of how I feel.

Stacey: How do you feel?

Derek: The one thing I donít want is to keep starting and stopping with you.

Stacey: I donít want that, either.

[Phone rings]

Stacey: Winthrop and Edwards. Jamie. So, why the hell didnít anybody notify me? Ok, no, no, I'll meet you at the courthouse in front of the judge's chambers. I'm leaving right now. Right. Bye. I got to go.

Derek: Yeah, to go talk to Jamie.

Stacey: It's an emergency. I'd like to explain.

Derek: Ok.

Stacey: Talk to you later?

Derek: Sure.

Frankie: Where's Stace?

Derek: Gone.

Frankie: Is everything ok?

Derek: We're so different.

Frankie: What?

Derek: Stacey and me.

Frankie: So what?

Derek: So it always comes down to that, you know? I'm whatever I am, and she's this lawyer with clients like Jamie.

Frankie: Hey, Jamieís my cousin, and he's having a little bit of trouble right now, that's all. He's not after Stacey.

Derek: Yeah, I know.

Frankie: So what's the problem?

Derek: I think it's pretty obvious, Frankie. A lady lawyer and somebody like me?

Frankie: Oh. Hey, hang in there, handsome. When two people like each other as much as you two do, what else matters, huh? This is my buddy.

Sharlene: You should've seen him. He's so angry.

John: Does he have any idea what this might do to Josie?

Sharlene: I donít think he cares, John. You know, if he does go to New York and he does find her --

John: Now, that's highly unlikely.

Sharlene: But if he does, he's going to make me look even worse to her.

John: Did he say that to you?

Sharlene: No, he didnít say that. He didnít have to. He will accuse me of trying to deprive my daughter of her father. He will accuse me of all sorts of things, John.

John: Then you're going to have to be the one to tell her.

Sharlene: John, he's on his way to New York right now.

John: Then we will go to New York, too. This is your daughter we're talking about. You've spent way too much time trying to make things right with Josie. You canít let Russ stop you now.

Sharlene: You're right, I canít.

John: Good. Then let's go get packed. Come on.

Sharlene: No.

John: What do you mean, no? You just agreed with me.

Sharlene: I should go alone, John.

John: Sharlene, I've told you, you donít have to do anything alone anymore.

Sharlene: John, you canít leave your job at the hospital.

John: Sure I can.

Sharlene: No, John. Russ would love to get you on something like that.

John: I can handle Russ.

Sharlene: I will stand a better chance if it's just me.

John: You're wrong, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Then I'm wrong. It wonít be the first time.

John: Why donít you let me help you?

Sharlene: No, John. Besides, you've got to stay here and keep us ahead of schedule, right? Right?

John: Right. You better get going.

Sharlene: I love you. Ok? I'll call you as soon as I get to New York, all right?

John: Yeah.

Sharlene: And take this.

Courtney: John. Hi.

John: Courtney, how are you?

Courtney: I'm ok. I'm sorry to bother you, but --

John: No bother. Come on in.

Courtney: A vase was stolen from your brother's apartment yesterday, a real pricey vase.

John: Yeah? What's that got to do with me?

Courtney: Well, I'm interested in one of your employees. I need to ask you a few questions about Derek Dane.

Kenneth: Ok, all this is, is a juvenile court hearing.

Donna: But not a trial?

Kenneth: No, nothing like it. The judge will ask Vicky what her reasons are for wanting to have care and control of Steven.

Donna: But shouldnít she have had some time to prepare for all of this?

Kenneth: No. All you have to do is be honest and sincere.

Vicky: Oh.

Kenneth: I wanted to catch the other side unaware.

Vicky: All right, now, what about Jamie?

Kenneth: He'll give a statement, too.

Michael: How is this not like a trial?

Kenneth: Well, lawyers are not allowed to object, nor is there any cross-examination allowed.

Michael: That means the judge makes the final decision?

Donna: About who gets custody?

Kenneth: Temporary custody, and visitation rights will also be allowed the other parent.

Michael: Well, what about the decision on permanent custody?

Kenneth: A date will be set for the full custody hearing.

Donna: Now, what are Victoria's chances of walking out of here today with Steven?

Vicky: Oh, God.

Kenneth: The odds are generally with the mother.

Vicky: Oh, I canít let them take my baby away from me.

Kenneth: Listen, you've been the primary nurturer since birth, ok? The judge is certainly going to take that into consideration.

Michael: Well, do they call witnesses?

Sharlene: Russ, wait.

Russ: What do you want?

Sharlene: I'm going with you to New York.

Russ: Donít be ridiculous. That's impossible.

Sharlene: Like hell it is.

John: Courtney is just doing her job. It's routine. Nobody wants you to quit, and nobody wants you to leave.

Derek: All my life I just kept on bouncing around, you know?

John: Yeah, yeah. I've done a little bouncing around myself.

Derek: Well, I figured it was the only way to go. Stay loose, never get tied down.

John: Has a familiar ring to it.

Derek: Yeah, but now the idea of setting up in one place --

John: Yeah, it doesn't sound all that bad, does it?

Derek: Maybe not.

John: Bay City isnít all that bad. Believe me, I've seen a lot worse.

Derek: I donít want to bring any trouble down on Frame Construction.

John: Why donít you let me worry about Frame Construction?

Derek: No, you donít understand. My life is complicated.

John: How?

Derek: Well, I haven't lived a regular life.

John: So, who has?

Derek: Seriously.

John: Well, I am serious. Look, Derek, I donít know you that well, but I do have an instinct about people, especially people who have spent most of their life running.

Derek: You know, I canít guarantee I'm not going to run again.

John: Hey, listen, you do what you have to do. I'm not going to tell you how to run your life. But I can tell you this -- staying on the outside can be kind of rough. It's not a gentle world out there.

Derek: "Gentle," yeah. Gentle.

John: Why donít you give it a shot here in Bay City? You know, let yourself be opened up to a few things and a few more people. I know you got problems, but you do seem to have some friends. There's no substitute for friends.

Sam: All right, let's start from "if you will refer to."

Amanda: Right, right. "Ladies and gentlemen of the board, if you will please refer to the folders in front of you, where you will find --" what will they find?

Sam: The agenda for today's meeting. Look, let's not do this now, ok?

Amanda: I'm sorry, Sam. I just canít concentrate.

Sam: Yeah, you're a wreck.

Amanda: Well, can you blame me?

Sam: It's not doing you any good.

Amanda: What if they take that baby away from Jamie?

Sam: Whatever happens, Amanda, Jamie will have the opportunity to be a fantastic father to his child.

Amanda: Sure.

Sam: Why do you doubt that?

Amanda: I just canít believe that Jamie and I -- we're both such terrible judges of character.

Sam: You're not going to blame yourself for this one, are you?

Amanda: I sang her praises! I was the one that convinced Jamie that she was the woman for him. I thought she was devoted to him.

Sam: Maybe she was.

Amanda: She had an affair with Jake McKinnon.

Sam: She only slept with Jake once.

Amanda: And you believe that?

Sam: I have no reason not to.

Amanda: Ok, even if it was only once, how much better does that make it?

Sam: She and Jamie were split up at the time.

Amanda: So she says.

Sam: Look, even if they weren't --

Amanda: What?

Sam: She and Jake slept together once. That doesn't necessarily mean that she didnít love Jamie.

Amanda: You donít think this is wrong?

Sam: Sure. I think it was wrong. But I also think it was very human. Now, why are you so furious about this?

Jamie: She accused Jake McKinnon of rape.

Judge: Dr. Frame --

Jamie: I'm not saying this to defame Vicky, your honor. But her deception is a primary reason for these proceedings. She used Steven to deceive people.

Judge: How?

Jamie: She knew that I might not be Stevenís father, and she didnít tell me. I found out by default, and it put a distance between me and my son. I was afraid to see him, afraid that it would turn out he wasn't mine and that I might lose him forever. I was deprived of the right to bond with my son, which is why I welcome this hearing. I want my son to grow up in a home that values honesty and trust and openness. Vicky used her pregnancy to get me to marry her, and now I'm afraid that she might continue to use Steven to get at me. Or worse, she might use the same kind of deception on my child.

Judge: You have made that point, Dr. Frame.

Jamie: Vicky mentioned my previous marriages, and she was quite accurate about that. But she was wrong. She's wrong if she thinks a divorce doesn't mean anything to me. I have learned from my mistakes. I'm a better person for them and, I think, a better parent. I love Steven very much, and I canít imagine a more wonderful child. Until the court -- until the court sets a hearing to decide permanent custody, I ask you to allow me this chance to get to know my son.

Judge: Thank you, Dr. Frame.

Judge: I'm ready to make my decision.

Cass: Caroline. You're still here.

Caroline: Why wouldnít I be?

Cass: Well, I thought you'd be packing. Our flight leaves in less than an hour.

Caroline: I have a brilliant idea.

Cass: And I have a feeling you're going to share it with me.

Caroline: I called the airlines.

Cass: Yeah?

Caroline: There's a space on tomorrow's flight. Why donít we have a layover?

Cass: A layover?

Caroline: Mm-hmm. My room's available for another night.

Cass: You donít mean to tell me --

Caroline: Mm-hmm. Why donít you think about it, Cass? Why donít we extend this vacation? Hmm?

Russ: What has gotten into you, Sharlene?

Sharlene: Josie is still my daughter. I will be there when you talk to her.

Russ: This is just going to confuse her.

Sharlene: And you donít think it'll confuse her if I'm not there?

Russ: Well, I donít know, but --

Sharlene: I do! Josie is my daughter. I know her better than anyone. I will sleep on the streets if I have to. I will follow you day and night -- whatever I have to do to be there when you find her.
