Cass: Hey, honey, hi.

Felicia: Hello.

Cass: So I want you to tell me something --

Felicia: Yeah.

Cass: Do I look dapper, or what?

Felicia: Ah. Come in.

Cass: Huh? Do you like these threads? They cost me more than Winthrop & Edwards has grossed in the past three months.

Felicia: I'm having some coffee. Would you like a drink?

Cass: Oh, no, thank you, but I figured what the hey. That's why God made revolving charges, right?

Felicia: Yeah. Great jacket.

Cass: Thank you. So did Mitch get off ok?

Felicia: Yeah, yeah. He went to Chicago and St. Louis and, I donít know, some other cities.

Cass: Yeah, he's still involved in that "fresh faces" campaign, isnít he?

Felicia: Well, I think you'd know that better than I, wouldnít you?

Cass: What?

Felicia: Well, that campaign -- it was Lucas' idea.

Cass: Uh-huh.

Felicia: And it's your private eye that's doing the investigation on Lucas. Right? Oh -- oh, Mitch told me.

Cass: Oh, Mitch told --

Felicia: Well, actually he didnít really tell me. I found a bill from Frankie and he sort of had to tell me.

Cass: Ah. I think maybe I will have something to drink.

Felicia: Cass?

Cass: What?

Felicia: I want the truth.

Cass: Well, Mitch told you the truth.

Felicia: No, no, no. He told me what he wants. I want to know about you. Why are you trying to dig up information on Lucas?

Sam: Amanda, Rachel has to know sometime.

Amanda: Not today.

Sam: If she finds out that you've kept this from her, she's going to be really upset.

Amanda: Well, she still has Jamie winning the custody case on her mind.

Sam: And she probably wonít think about the red swan till tomorrow, so why not put it off one more day?

Amanda: Right, something like that.

Sam: Amanda, Rachel deserves to know.

Amanda: Can I make a comment?

Sam: Nope. I haven't even started yet.

Amanda: I just want to make one little comment.

Sam: No comments.

Amanda: I'm going to make a comment anyway, so you might as well just close your ears.

Sam: That's an interesting comment. Come here.

Rachel: Oh, excuse me.

Sam: Ahem -- no problem.

Rachel: I just brought you some refreshments.

Amanda: Thanks. Oh, wait.

Sam: Yeah. So, Jamie must be pretty relieved, huh?

Rachel: Yeah. Yeah, I think he is.

Sam: Amanda said the custody hearing was kind of rough.

Rachel: Hmm.

Amanda: But at least Steven is staying here with us. And Jamie has complete control over when Vicky sees him.

Rachel: Yeah, he was pretty surprised about those pictures of Evan and Vicky. I was, too, actually.

Amanda: Yeah, well, nothing that Vicky does seems to surprise me, not anymore.

Sam: Even if she does it with Evan?

Amanda: I'm just glad everything can get back to normal around here.

Rachel: Well, that sounds fine to me. Excuse me. I have to go call Cass -- oh, it's too late to call him.

Amanda: Call Cass about what?

Rachel: The red swan. He was having it appraised for me -- it should be back by now.

Amanda: No.

Rachel: What? What's going on?

Sam: You better tell her.

Rachel: Amanda?

Sam: You better tell her.

Rachel: Tell me -- tell me what?

Amanda: Mom, the -- the red swan was stolen.

Derek: I told Courtney not to call you.

Stacey: I know that.

Derek: I didnít want you here.

Stacey: But I am here and that's all that matters. I'm here.

Cass: No big deal. It's just a routine background check, that's all.

Felicia: Wouldnít a routine background check include talking to me?

Cass: Not necessarily.

Felicia: What do you mean, "Not necessarily"? I knew him! For heaven's sakes, we had a child together!

Cass: Yeah, but Frankie knows all that.

Felicia: She doesn't know about his character way back then. I mean, doesn't a background check include finding out about a guy's character?

Cass: Well, sure it does!

Felicia: I mean, he was gentle and he was kind and he -- he was caring and he was very honest.

Cass: 23 years ago.

Felicia: What are you doing here? Are you doing a character check or are you doing a character assassination, Cass?

Cass: Hey, take it easy, will you? I'm sure Frankie will talk to you all about it pretty soon.

Felicia: You know what, Cass? I really donít need this from you.

Cass: What?

Felicia: Secrets. Secrets. You still haven't told me why you're doing any of this. Why are you?

Cass: I wanted to find out the name of his tailor.

Felicia: Oh. You're not going to joke your way out of this one, honey.

Cass: I'm not?

Felicia: No, you're not.

Cass: Oh.

Felicia: I want to know why you and Mitch went behind my back.

Cass: Whoa!

Felicia: What do you mean, "Whoa"?

Cass: I didnít go behind your back.

Felicia: Oh, really? What would you call this?

Cass: Mitch hired me, I assigned Frankie.

Felicia: You wouldnít have assigned Frankie if you knew there wasn't something wrong here.

Cass: Donít you think Mitch should explain this to you? I find myself in the -- in the slightest bind here ethically speaking.

Felicia: Mm-hmm.

Cass: I mean, you're my best friend, but Mitch is my client.

Felicia: Well, Mitch and I did try and talk about it. We had a -- we had a fight, ok?

Cass: Oh.

Felicia: Yeah, "oh." And --

Cass: Well, did you patch it up?

Felicia: Well, I donít -- sort of, yes, sort of, and then he left.

Cass: I see.

Felicia: He doesn't trust Lucas. I know that.

Cass: Well, neither do I.

Felicia: Why?

Cass: I donít know. Call it gut instinct. But when Mitch asked me to assign Frankie, I agreed to.

Felicia: Without telling me?

Cass: We both kind of figured you'd have this reaction.

Felicia: Because Lucas is a good man, he is.

Cass: Yeah? Well, then, how come he never once tried to contact you?

Felicia: Oh, Cass! Why should he anyway?

Cass: If he's such a good man.

Felicia: Oh --

Cass: You're a famous woman, Felicia. You're not that hard to track down. Where the hell has he been for the last 20 years?

Felicia: He's been busy, ok? He's been building a business.

Cass: Yeah, right. He's been -- he's been keeping a very low profile is what he's been doing.

Felicia: What are you saying? What are you saying -- that that makes him into some kind of a villain?

Cass: Not necessarily.

Felicia: What have you found out?

Cass: We're still working on it.

Felicia: Oh. So that means zilch.

Cass: Yeah? Well, there's zilch and, then again, there's zilch.

Felicia: I want you to stop this investigation, Cass, and I'm not kidding you! Right now.

[Doorbell rings]

Cass: Answer the door.

Felicia: I'm going. Right now.

Cass: It's not polite to keep guests waiting.

Felicia: Oh, shut up. It is a nice suit.

[Felicia sighs]

Frankie: Hi -- hi!

Felicia: Hello, Frankie.

Frankie: Is Mitch here?

Felicia: No, no, he isnít.

Frankie: Oh. Great.

Felicia: Well, gee, I hope you're not too disappointed.

Frankie: I beg your pardon?

Felicia: Well, if you're coming here about the investigation on Lucas, you donít really have to talk to Mitch about it.

Frankie: I donít?

Felicia: No, no, because I want you to stop the investigation now. Come in.

Frankie: Oh --

Felicia: Please come in.

Frankie: Well, sure. You know, the investigation's already been called off.

Felicia: Really?

Frankie: Oh, yeah, a long time ago!

Felicia: Gee, that isnít what Cass said.

Frankie: What?

Felicia: No. He said it was still going on, didnít you, Cass?

Frankie: Hi.

Cass: Hi, Frankie.

Felicia: Ok, kids. What's the real story, and please, please, why donít we just stop the lying, all right?

Amanda: So, we managed to keep it out of the papers. We didnít want you to read about it before we talked to you. We were hoping we were going to have it back before you came home.

Sam: Yeah, but nothing worked out.

Rachel: The police are involved?

Sam: Yes.

Amanda: Nobody seems to understand how it could have disappeared from Cass' office.

Sam: Except for the fact that Cass' safe wasn't broken into. Whoever stole it had the combination.

Amanda: Look, Mom, the police are probably just keeping things quiet. I mean, there have been several thefts in the area lately.

Sam: Yeah, there has -- what, Iris' painting, the Ming vase over at the Hudsonís'?

Amanda: Right. I'm sure they have a lead by now. They're going to arrest someone soon.

Rachel: I donít care about the arrests.

Amanda: Mom? I'm sorry. I know it was really special to you -- the last gift that Daddy got you.

Rachel: It was more than that. It was -- it was like a bridge or a last link.

Amanda: Between the two of you?

Rachel: Yeah.

Amanda: We'll get it back, Mom.

Sam: Yeah, sure. It's just a matter of time.

Rachel: I think maybe I want to go find Cass.

Amanda: But his office is probably closed, like you said.

Rachel: So I'll track him down.

Amanda: Do you want some help?

Rachel: No. I'll do it myself.

Sam: You were right to tell her.

Amanda: I know. I just wish that I could tell her that I know where it is. I find women that have crazy busy lives...

Derek: They were tearing my place apart and they were going through my things, including the art book.

Stacey: Why the art book?

Derek: There's a picture in it of the red swan. That doesn't mean I took it!

Stacey: Well, of course it doesn't mean that -- just that bells went off in Courtneyís head as soon as she found it.

Derek: No, Courtneyís wanted me in here since day one.

Stacey: Is it starting to get to you?

Derek: I'm trying to Zen out, but it's not easy.

Stacey: Did Courtney read you your rights?

Derek: Oh, yeah. Yeah, right after they slammed me on the floor and they cuffed me, she read me my rights.

Stacey: Why did you have to fight?

Derek: What was I supposed to do?

Stacey: I should have been there.

Derek: It wouldnít have made any difference.

Stacey: Courtney does not have a case.

Derek: Man, I must -- I guess I must have looked pretty guilty to Courtney. Man.

Stacey: I will get you out of here.

Derek: You know, all those years on the run, I -- I just must have panicked.

Stacey: But you were innocent and you knew that. What did you have to be afraid of?

Derek: I donít know. Maybe not being able to get out of here again -- I donít know!

Stacey: Well, on top of everything else, we've got refusing to obey an officer, we've got resisting arrest and assaulting an officer.

Derek: I'll handle it.

Stacey: We just have to get you out of here. We'll worry about the charges later.

Derek: Forget about it. I canít afford bail.

Stacey: I'll take care of it.

Derek: No, you wonít.

Stacey: I am not going to stand here and let you sit in there.

Derek: I donít need charity.

Stacey: I wasn't offering it. I'm going to request that you be released on your own recognizance. Barring that, I'll lend you the money for bail.

Derek: No.

Stacey: Put on this shirt.

Derek: Ok.

Stacey: Thanks.

Derek: How much longer before I go to court?

Stacey: We go to court in 15 minutes, and we walk out together.

Derek: Yeah?

Stacey: Yeah. And I am not going to let them separate us.

Cass: Actually, Frankie is right. The investigation is off.

Felicia: Then why did you tell me it was going on?

Cass: Why did I --

Felicia: Yeah.

Cass: Well, what I meant was -- I thought it was going on for another day or two -- but I guess I was mistaken. If Frankie says it's over, then it's over.

Frankie: It's over.

Felicia: It's funny that Mitch never told me it was over.

Cass: Well, you know --

Frankie: Because Mitch doesn't know that it's over. That's why I'm here -- to tell him that it's over, finito, kaput.

Felicia: So you came all the way over here just to tell him that?

Frankie: Yes! And to give him his final bill.

Felicia: Why?

Cass: Why what?

Felicia: Why is the investigation over?

Cass: Frankie, I think it'd be much simpler if you explain this whole thing. Frankie's the one that's directly involved in this.

Frankie: Well, I'll tell you, Felicia, doing an investigation like this can cost a lot of money.

Cass: Oh-ho.

Frankie: I mean, following a guy around for 24 hours can really start to run up a great big bill. You know what I mean?

Felicia: Whoa, wait a minute, wait a minute. Following him around?

Frankie: Yeah.

Felicia: I thought this was a routine check.

Cass: Frankie's very thorough.

Felicia: Yeah?

Cass: A background report is --

Frankie: A background report includes at least one 24-hour period of continuous surveillance.

Felicia: I see. So, explain to me again why this investigation is over.

Frankie: Because we came up dry.

Felicia: In other words, zilch?

Frankie: Exactly. It was a waste of Mitchís money.

Felicia: Huh. So, are you on other cases now?

Frankie: Well, no.

Felicia: What does that mean?

Frankie: Well, I work for Lucas now.

Felicia: Is that for real? Really, you do?

Frankie: I'm his administrative assistant, remember?

Felicia: Well, I thought it was a little strange when I saw you there the other day, and then Mitch said he hired you, so I just assumed she was doing undercover work for you.

Frankie: Oh, no! No, he hired me a few days ago. I guess he liked the way I worked when I was trying to locate your daughter.

Felicia: Does Lucas know that you were investigating him?

Frankie: Hey, he knows that I used to be a P.I., but anything between me and my clients is strictly confidential.

Cass: If nothing else, Frankie is discreet.

Felicia: Did you fire her?

Cass: Mm-hmm. Yes, I --

Frankie: Are you kidding? I quit. He begged me not to leave. He was on his knees.

Cass: All right, Frankie --

Frankie: Oh, you should have heard him, Felicia. "Oh, please, Frankie. You're the best I've ever worked with. Please donít leave me."

Cass: Frankie -- just finish the story, ok?

Frankie: Oh, anyway, I was tired of being a P.I. Do you know what his pay scale is?

Cass: Frankie --

Frankie: And talk about benefits -- yeah, right. No dental --

Cass: Dental?

Frankie: No maternity leave --

Cass: Maternity -- whoever heard of a pregnant P.I.?

Frankie: There is always a first time.

Cass: Hey, admit it -- you were one day away from getting canned and you walked out on me! You abandoned me!

Frankie: Oh, yeah, right!

Cass: Yeah!

Frankie: No wonder you're a lawyer, Winthrop, since talk is cheap and that is all you do.

Cass: Cheap? Look who's talking about cheap!

Frankie: Donít you dare --

Felicia: Guys, quiet! Now, how much does Mitch still owe you?

Frankie: $783, minus the deposit, leaves $83?

Felicia: Thank you.

Cass: You're welcome.

Felicia: $83. I'll go get you your check.

Frankie: When did she find out?

Cass: Today, I think.

Frankie: Oh. Do you think she bought my story?

Cass: Not a chance. I hate lying to her like that.

Frankie: You didnít. You dumped it all in my lap.

Cass: Yeah, well, the problem is she's blind when it comes to Lucas.

Frankie: So, we'll tell her everything when we figure out what he's up to.

Cass: Yeah. But will she understand?

Amanda: Hey!

Sam: Oh --

Amanda: Since dinner's almost ready, I thought I would come up here and get you.

Sam: I donít think I'm going to make it for dinner tonight.

Amanda: Can I tell them to hold it, maybe?

Sam: No. I'll get some later, ok?

Amanda: Ok.

Sam: Is that new?

Amanda: Yeah. You like it?

Sam: Sure, yeah.

Amanda: What's the matter?

Sam: How much did that cost?

Amanda: Sam, donít worry about it. We can afford it.

Sam: The question was, can I afford it?

Amanda: Why canít I share my own money with my husband?

Sam: Because it makes your husband feel crummy.

Amanda: Sorry.

Sam: Look, Amanda, I'm on my way again. I'll take care of us, ok?

Amanda: Sam, money isnít important.

Sam: It is when you donít have any.

Amanda: Well, look at Vicky. What good did her money do her?

Sam: Seeing Vicky go down in flames didnít exactly ruin your day, did it?

Amanda: She was trying to steal my brother's son away from him.

Sam: Yeah, I know that. So you never did tell me how you felt about those pictures of Evan and Vicky.

Amanda: Yes, I did. I told you that nothing Vicky does even surprises me anymore.

Sam: I was thinking about Evan.

Amanda: What do you mean?

Sam: Well, how do you feel about Evan being involved with Vicky?

Amanda: Honey, it's just that he's a very important part of Cory Publishing. If we are expected to work with him, I mean, do you think he should be seeing somebody that's been backing Iris?

Sam: So you donít think he should be involved with Vicky?

Amanda: No! No. I think, professionally, it could get very tricky.

Sam: Is that it? Or is it the fact that he's seeing another woman? 

Frankie: Donít worry. She'll understand once she hears the whole story -- assuming we find the story.

Cass: Oh, we'll find it. This guy is dirty. Somewhere, somehow, he is dirty, I know it.

Frankie: Oh. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll slip up.

Cass: Look, Frankie --

Frankie: Hmm?

Cass: I donít want you going over to his place at night unless I can keep an eye on you.

Frankie: What are you talking about?

Cass: It's 9:00 to 5:00 for you from now on. That way, I'll know you're ok.

Frankie: Are you crazy? Lucas is no nine-to-fiver.

Cass: Listen, I'm not going to spend my life watching you from that apartment across the way.

Frankie: Well, then donít. I'm ok. I'm due there tonight for dictation.

Cass: Oh, I love it! Great, dictation -- you bought that?

Frankie: What do you want me to do, say no? I'm on call 24 hours a day.

Cass: Next thing you know, he'll have you hooked up to a beeper.

Frankie: I already have one. >From now on, I'm on a short leash.

Cass: You know, you look like a drug dealer.

Frankie: Oh, will you lighten up?

Cass: Fine. I'll spend my nights in that monstrosity you laughingly call home.

Frankie: Well, Cass, I already told you you donít have to do that.

Felicia: All right. Here it is. I'm sorry it took so long. I had a phone call to make. Your check.

Frankie: No problem. I'd better be getting back to work.

Felicia: Ah.

Cass: I'll see you around.

Frankie: Right. Felicia, will you tell Mitch that I'm sorry I couldn't come up with anything?

Felicia: Oh, no, it's all right. You know, when it's zilch, it's zilch.

Cass: Ha, ha.

Felicia: Lucas is a good man.

Frankie: Right. You take care, Felicia, ok?

Felicia: Thank you. You, too. See you soon.

Frankie: Yes.

Felicia: Ok. Bye.

[Door closes]

Cass: So --

Felicia: Well.

Cass: Who did you talk to on the phone? Oh. Aha. Well, actually, you know, I have to be going myself.

Felicia: No, no, no, no.

Cass: What?

Felicia: I think you should stay, we should talk some more.

Cass: I really, really have a very pressing engagement that I'm already late for, so I -- I canít -- I'd love to say, but I really canít. So will you excuse me, please, Felicia?

[Doorbell rings]

Cass: Oh.

Felicia: You are so lucky. You know that?

Cass: I donít know what you're talking about.

Felicia: Rachel, hi. Come in, please.

Rachel: Thanks.

Cass: Hello, Rachel. I didnít realize you were back.

Rachel: Yeah, I got back this morning.

Felicia: Look, if you're here to see Mitch, I'm afraid he's not here.

Rachel: Zack told me that Cass was here.

Cass: You're looking for me?

Rachel: Yeah. I know about the red swan. I know it was stolen.

Felicia: What?

Rachel: Hmm. The family kept it out of the papers.

Cass: I apologize for that, Rachel, I really do. Of course we're insured, but --

Rachel: It's not your fault.

Cass: No, I know we should have contacted you as soon as it was missing.

Rachel: The family wanted to tell me.

Felicia: Well, I'm sure the police are doing everything they can.

Rachel: I hope so. Anyway, that's what I wanted to talk to you about.

Felicia: What, a private investigation?

Rachel: Yes. Can you talk now, or when can we meet?

Cass: Well, tomorrow is better for me. How about you?

Rachel: Ok, fine.

Cass: We'll talk in the morning?

Rachel: Thank you.

Cass: Ok. I really do have to run. Excuse me. Take care.

Felicia: Yeah. I'll talk to you later.

Cass: Oh, ok. That's fine. That'll be fine.

[Door opens and closes]

Rachel: Well, look, I'm sorry I barged in. I shouldnít have. I'm a little upset.

Felicia: No. God, I understand that. I am sorry about the red swan. I hope you know that.

Rachel: Yeah, of course I do. It was just -- it was a low blow.

Felicia: I know. It must be. I know how special it was to you.

Rachel: I guess I better go.

Felicia: Rachel?

Rachel: What?

Felicia: Why donít you stay a few minutes? We can talk.

Rachel: Now?

Felicia: It's about Mitch.

Attorney: And the defendant has no roots in the community, your honor. He lives illegally in a vacant building. In the past, using an alias, he compiled a police record, including a conviction for burglary. Lastly, he strongly resisted arrest, causing injury to both officers who finally managed to subdue him. Given these conditions, your honor, the state feels there's no guarantee that the defendant would appear for trial. Therefore, we request that Derek Dane be denied bail.

Judge: Ms. Winthrop, would you like to speak to that?

Stacey: I certainly would, your honor. The assistant district attorney makes this all sound very simple when, in fact, it's not. Not at all. My client does have strong roots in this community. He's lived here for almost a year now. He has friends in Bay City. He has a job with Frame Construction. We donít deny that he is what is sometimes referred to as a street person. But that reflects more on the 1980s and our society than it does on my client. As to his resisting arrest, my client felt extremely threatened. He found the police had entered his room and had gone through his belongings. He was upset. The arrest was another act against him and against his sense of freedom. As to the criminal record that the state mentioned, this record was compiled years ago when Derek Dane was a very young man. And most important of all, your honor, this case is not a case. It's mere conjecture. My client owns an art book, and it just so happens that there is a page that has a picture of the art object which was stolen, which bears no --

Attorney: Your honor, can we argue the merits of this case another time? This is a hearing on bail.

Stacey: But the fact that this case is so weak, your honor, is one more reason why my client would not be afraid to appear before a trial.

Judge: Yeah, she has a right to make that point. Go ahead.

Stacey: So taking all of this into consideration, your honor, our request is that my client, Mr. Dane, be released on his own recognizance.

Derek: Wow. You were great. I hardly knew you were talking about me.

Judge: Since Mr. Dane does not have a home anyway, he might just as well stay with us.

Stacey: Your honor --

Judge: Bail for the defendant, Derek Dane, is hereby denied. He will be held in the county jail until trial.

Lucas: Call Harrison, tell him I'll call him back tomorrow. Have the McMahon files in my car so I can take a look at them in the morning before I get started. Got that?

Frankie: Got it!

Lucas: Are you sure?

Frankie: Yes.

Lucas: Read it back to me, in order.

Frankie: Ok. "Call Mark Judson and tell him to arrange to hire Bettinger & Brown as creative consultants on the Pierce project. Write a draft ledger to Carl Kettinger asking if he'd be interested in working, but donít mention Bay City."

Lucas: Donít mention Bay City, right.

Frankie: "Drop your shirts off at the Chinese laundry, extra starch. Call Harrison tomorrow and tell him that you'll call him back. And have the McMahon files in your car so that you can look them over when you start off in the morning." What would you like me to do first?

Lucas: Let's begin with you.

Frankie: What?

Lucas: I want to find out who you really are.

Amanda: Sam, please. Let's not have another argument about Evan, ok?

Sam: Hey, I'm not arguing about Evan.

Amanda: Good.

Sam: I'm just curious how you feel about him being involved with Vicky.

Amanda: Sam --

Sam: I mean, does it make you angry, glad? How do you feel about it?

Amanda: You know what I feel? I feel like going over there, locking the door, and ripping all of your clothes off.

Sam: I thought you had to feed Alli her dinner.

Amanda: Is this going to be the painting of me?

Sam: Yes, it's going to be the painting of you, and you still haven't answered my question.

Amanda: Sam, things have been so different lately. They've been great, especially after that one night up in the cabin.

Sam: So, you're not going to answer my question?

Amanda: No, I'm not. Because I donít think it matters.

Sam: Well, you're right. Things have been different since we got back from the cabin -- better -- and I wonít let anything jeopardize that, ever.

Amanda: Seeing you painting again --

Sam: Yeah, it's like the old days when I really needed to paint, you know?

Amanda: It's great.

Sam: Even when your husband doesn't come down for dinner?

Amanda: Well, I guess I'll just have to catch you later.

Sam: Hmm. Hey --

Amanda: Hmm?

Sam: Were you serious about locking that door and ripping my clothes off?

[Amanda giggles]

[Phone rings]

Amanda: Oh.

Sam: That's -- that's just great.

Amanda: It's probably Mom.

Sam: Ahem.

Amanda: I'll get it. Hello. No. This is her daughter. Who? Yes. I will. I will tell her. Thank you.

Sam: Who's that?

Amanda: The police. They just made an arrest for the theft of the red swan.

Sam: Who?

Amanda: Derek Dane.

Stacey: Your honor, my client has a right to bail.

Judge: I ruled, counselor.

Stacey: It's a prejudicial ruling.

Judge: The man is a vagrant.

Stacey: His housing situation is temporary. He has a job.

Judge: The man has no family. He lives in a building illegally. When told that he was under arrest, he attacked two police officers.

Stacey: I explained that to --

Judge: It shows a clear disregard for the law. Now, I canít trust him to appear for trial. Bail is denied. This court stands adjourned.

Stacey: I canít believe this.

Derek: I can.

Stacey: What?

Derek: I knew it would happen like this.

Stacey: Well, I'm going to protest it.

Derek: It wonít do you any good. You heard him. I'm a vagrant. People like me get a different kind of justice.

Officer: Let's make this easy on everyone, pal.

Stacey: It's not over, Derek.

Derek: Yes, it is.

Stacey: No.

Derek: Look, thanks for trying. It's good to know you believe in me. That means more than anything.

Stacey: Derek --

Officer: Come on, come on. You're breaking my heart.

Derek: Yeah, right.

Stacey: I'll see you first thing in the morning. I wonít let them do this!

Courtney: Stace, I'm sorry. I know you must feel awful.

Stacey: It's not my feelings that I'm worried about. It's Derek who's being hurt.

Courtney: He'll be ok.

Stacey: I canít believe the judge denied him bail!

Courtney: I donít know. He has no home. He has no family.

Stacey: Courtney, he has me!

Courtney: Why didnít you release him into your own custody?

Stacey: Because that would be totally humiliating to him. Besides, he's got his rights.

Courtney: You know, I think you're a little bit too close to this case.

Stacey: What do you mean?

Courtney: I mean you know how the system works.

Stacey: Yeah, I know how the system works. I've been promoting it all my life!

Courtney: But then you've --

Stacey: And I thought that justice was fair and impartial, but this time it wasn't! (Whistling)

Felicia: Rachel -- please. I understand that Mitch came to see you this morning.

Rachel: Yeah. He was looking for Matthew. Matthew wasn't there.

Felicia: And he just stayed?

Rachel: Yeah. We talked.

Felicia: Rachel, this is very difficult for me.

Rachel: Oh -- he told me that you quarreled. Does that help?

Felicia: Well, we probably shouldnít have. It's just that I got surprised that he was having Lucas spied on.

Rachel: Did you try to patch things up?

Felicia: Hmm -- in some ways, I guess, yeah.

Rachel: Good.

Felicia: When he came over and you talked, did he say anything about Lucas?

Rachel: Yeah.

Felicia: And what did you say?

Rachel: Me?

Felicia: Yeah.

Rachel: I told him I thought it was a good idea that he was having Lucas checked out.

Felicia: I see.

Rachel: I donít trust him, Felicia. I haven't since I met him. I'm sorry. That's just the way I feel.

Felicia: Obviously, we donít agree. But then I've always respected your opinion. Rachel, look, I know you have a very special relationship with Mitch because of Matthew.

Rachel: Yeah. I know that's not always easy for you.

Felicia: I've never tried to interfere in that.

Rachel: I know that.

Felicia: So that's why I would really appreciate it if you could stay out of any misunderstandings that I have with Mitch. My marriage is very important to me.

Rachel: I know that. He came over and talked to me as a friend. I listened to him as any friend would. I'm not trying to interfere with your marriage. If anyone's doing that, Felicia, just maybe it's Lucas.

Cass: Oh --

Cass: Oh, thanks a lot, Frankie. The least you could have done was wait until I got everything set up.

Frankie: I was one of seven kids.

Lucas: Seven? That's a big family.

Frankie: Yes, it is, but my parents were getting a little tired by the time it came to raising me.

Lucas: I can imagine.

Cass: Frankie Frame, this is your life.

Frankie: Plus, with seven kids, there's not a lot of time left in the day for every one of them.

Lucas: You felt left out?

Frankie: I was left out. And, believe it or not, Mary Frances was a quiet kid.

Lucas: Who?

Frankie: That's my real name.

Lucas: Oh, yeah.

[Lucas laughs]

Frankie: Anyway, Mary Frances wasn't demanding.

Lucas: Hmm. So, where was Mary Frances raised?

Frankie: On a farm -- Chadwell, Oklahoma.

Lucas: Sounds like a nice place to be from.

Frankie: You got that right -- from.

Lucas: Hmm.

Frankie: I left there the minute I turned 18.

Lucas: So when did you become Frankie?

Frankie: The day I left. I decided I was going to talk differently, dress differently.

Lucas: Well, you certainly succeeded.

Frankie: Yes. Thank you.

Lucas: You made yourself something very unique. I can admire that.

Frankie: I'm glad.

Lucas: I did the same thing, only not in Oklahoma. A cold-water flat in Chicago.

Frankie: That's where the similarities end.

Lucas: What do you mean?

Frankie: You're rich, powerful, on top. Who am I?

Lucas: Oh, getting to the top is easy. You just have to have somebody show you how to climb.

Frankie: Yeah?

Cass: Climb what?

Lucas: You ready to learn?

Cass: Come on, Frankie. Just say no.

Staceyís voice: No, I'm not afraid. A little nervous, maybe, but --

Derek: What's wrong?

Cass: He's making a play for you, you dummy. Come on, watch out!

Lucas: Cat got your tongue?

Frankie: Yes.

Lucas: "Yes" what?

Frankie: Yes, I'd like to learn to get to the top with you teaching me.

Cass: Oh! I donít believe it!

Lucas: Let's get started.

[Static]

Lucas: We've got all night. There are some names, all right?

Cass: Canít hear anything through the curtain. Damn!

Lucas: No, what? I'd like --

Cass: What the hell are they doing?

Lucas' voice: There was never anybody but you.

Feliciaís voice: Our wedding wasn't real.

Lucas' voice: It wasn't?

Feliciaís voice: No.

Lucas: An empty church, cigar band for a ring.

Felicia: I remembered when you tried to smoke that thing. Why would you do that?

Lucas: I bought it. It cost me a quarter.

Felicia: You turned green.

Lucas: I'll be there when you need me. When you're hurt, I'll take the pain. When you're happy, it'll be my happiness.

Lucas' voice: This husband of yours -- do you love him?

Feliciaís voice: Yes.

Lucas' voice: The way you loved me?
