Amanda: Such a beautiful day. I'm glad we took half the day off.

Rachel: I know. We haven't had a barbecue all summer long.

Jamie: Yeah, the grill is almost ready now.

Rachel: You guys have time for a dip before everybody gets here.

Jamie: That sounds good.

Vicky: Oh, yes, it sure does! Hi.

Jamie: Hello, Vicky.

Vicky: Hello, Jamie. My, isnít this all festive.

Amanda: Who let you in here?

Vicky: I just love barbecues, donít you? Everything roasting over the coals.

Jamie: What do you want?

Vicky: I guess you all have plenty to celebrate, huh? Taking a child away from his mother.

Donna: You donít stop, do you? Bringing this child up here?

Olivia: Child?

Jake: Hello, Donna.

Donna: Come on. This is no place for you to be.

Olivia: Who is this woman?

Jake: It's my mother-in-law. Just ignore her.

Donna: Come on. Oh, come on.

Jake: Just beat it, Donna. We're busy.

Donna: You're not busy anymore. Come on.

Jake: I am warning you, Donna! This is my --

Donna: No, I'm warning you! Do you have any idea who this girl is?

Cass: Stacey, I just heard. I am sorry.

Stacey: Well, there's got to be a way out of this.

Cass: Well, what happened was very predictable. Judge Hansen thinks that anybody who hasn't graduated from Harvard is a menace to society.

Stacey: "Denying bail when the charge is felony theft"? Couldn't believe that.

Cass: Derek did get a raw deal.

Stacey: Well, I'm going to appeal that bail ruling. Derek is in prison because of who he is, not what he did.

Cass: Why donít you show me what you've got? Maybe I can hit it from another angle.

Stacey: Terrific. Take a look at this. We have to work fast, though. I want him out of there by tonight.

Cass: Tonight? Stacey, be realistic.

Stacey: Cass, being locked up is like death to Derek. I know him. And he's not going to last in there.

Guard: Exercise. Move it.

Inmate: Look at this. Hey. Hey, you. I'm calling you. When Steel calls you, you come.

Derek: No, I donít.

Inmate: Steel's the head man.

Steel: Maybe you haven't heard. I'm in charge here.

Derek: If you were, you wouldnít talk so much. Or so loud. And you wouldnít look so nervous.

Steel: Bad move, pretty boy. I wanted to be friends.

Derek: I donít want to fight with you. But if I have to I will. And I wonít leave you standing.

Josie: Reuben, wait a minute. You're just going to leave and say goodbye and that's it?

Reuben: Josie, I'm trying to make this easier on both of us, ok?

Josie: By forgetting about me and everything we've been through?

Reuben: No, I'm not forgetting about you. I just miss how we used to be back in New York, that's all.

Josie: So you're saying we canít be friends anymore.

Reuben: Josie, look around here. I mean, everything's changed.

Josie: Not between you and me.

Reuben: Josie, you just moved into a different world, and nobody here is going to offer me a welcome mat.

Josie: What are you talking about?

Reuben: I'm talking about this. All of this. Look at this.

Josie: This is beautiful.

Reuben: You know, this knickknack, your old man probably paid more for that than my mother makes in an entire year.

Josie: Reuben, I love it here.

Reuben: But this ain't you, Josie. At least not yet.

Josie: Oh, I see. I see. You say that I donít fit in here. Is that it? That I belong in that stupid farm for the rest of my life?

Reuben: No. I'm saying that you're being stubborn. I'm saying that you wonít admit that you miss that farm and your mother.

Josie: Well, I'm never going back there. I am happier here than I have ever been.

Reuben: No, no, no, no, no. You might be richer.

Josie: Reuben, Russ Matthews is my father. I mean, what do you expect me to do, just ignore that?

Reuben: Well, what does Matt have to say about all this?

Josie: He's thrilled for me.

Reuben: Well, that's because he loves you, that's why. I mean, he just wants you to be happy.

Josie: Oh, I see, and you know better?

Reuben: I do, Josie. I know what I'm talking about. I know that you're just trying to run away. And moving in with Daddy Warbucks ain't going to solve nothing.

Josie: Oh, I get it now. You're jealous. That's what this is all about.

Reuben: Oh, come on. I'm trying to tell you what it looks like from over here. The truth, remember that?

Josie: Russ wants me here.

Reuben: Oh, I'm cool on what Russ wants. But what about you? You know, your new family hates your mother.

Josie: That's her problem.

Reuben: No, no, no, no, no. That's your problem, too, ok? Because your mom ain't going to disappear, Josie, and neither are those feelings that's eating away at you.

Josie: You know, I'm starting to wish that you'd disappear.

Reuben: Oh, well, then just say the word then, babe.

Josie: I guess you and I are really different after all, aren't we?

Reuben: Just listen to what I said, all right? For your own sake.

[Door closes]

Donna: Does your father know you're here?

Olivia: You know my father?

Jake: So what? Who cares who her father is? This is none of your business, Donna. Get out of my house.

Donna: I'm sure Marley would love to know what's going on in her bedroom.

Jake: Nothing is going on.

Donna: Donít worry. I'm not going to tell her. I donít want her to know any more about your escapades.

Jake: Olivia just came over here to take a look at a tape.

Donna: Isnít that what they used to call "etchings," Jake?

Jake: Oh, funny. She wants my help.

Donna: Uh-huh.

Jake: She's a professional dancer.

Donna: Uh-huh. She's also Russ Matthews' daughter.

Jake: So what?

Donna: So, Russ Matthews is the chief of staff of Bay City general, and she's underage.

Olivia: No, I'm not. I'm 18.

Donna: You're barely 18. Does your father approve of you coming up into a married man's bedroom and visiting him?

Olivia: You're not going to tell him, are you?

Jake: You're 18? What happened to "I'm 23"? That's a little bit old for a dancer routine.

Donna: I think you'd better go home before there are any more misunderstandings. Jake, call her a cab.

Olivia: Well, what about my video?

Donna: Call her a cab.

Jake: 18. Jeez.

Donna: I donít know if you know this, but I just did you a very big favor.

Olivia: So you're not going to call my father?

Donna: No, I'm not going to, and you're never going to call Jake McKinnon again. He is bad news. I know more than anybody.

Rachel: We're just having a family dinner, Vicky, that's all.

Vicky: Oh.

Jamie: What are you doing here?

Vicky: Take a wild guess. Where is my son?

Jamie: At the park with Alli and Sam.

Vicky: Oh. I'll wait. Really, you donít mind me. Just go right along with your little party.

Amanda: You're not scheduled for a visit with Steven until the weekend.

Vicky: Is that so?

Rachel: Amanda, why donít you let Jamie handle this?

Amanda: The judge was very clear with the visitation schedule.

Vicky: Oh, did he put you in charge of it, Amanda?

Amanda: I donít know what makes you think you can come walking into our house whenever --

Jamie: Amanda? Amanda, it's ok. I want to talk to you alone.

Vicky: Really? I didnít think you had any secrets from Amanda and mummy.

Rachel: Amanda, you've got to watch your temper around Vicky.

Amanda: I know.

Rachel: That doesn't help, you know, interfering.

Amanda: Mom, this is Jamieís time with Steven. She thinks she can just come waltzing in here and take him.

Rachel: It's not your problem.

Evan: Hi. I hope I'm not interrupting.

Rachel: Hi, Evan.

Amanda: Oh, what a coincidence.

Evan: Excuse me.

Amanda: Vicky blows in your ear and you follow her anywhere.

Evan: Vickyís here?

Amanda: Yes. Didnít she tell you that she was coming here over lunch?

Evan: As a matter of fact, she didnít. Rachel, you should take a look at this. It just came in from London.

Amanda: That couldn't wait?

Rachel: I invited Evan over for dinner, Amanda.

Amanda: Oh.

Rachel: Mom and Helen are doing a lot of work in the kitchen. I think they could use some help.

Amanda: They're not the only ones.

Rachel: I'm sorry, Evan. This business with Vicky has got everybody very emotional.

Evan: I know, and I'm beginning to question whether I should stay on at Cory.

Rachel: Oh, Evan, not again.

Evan: Well, let's be honest, Rachel. It isnít working.

Rachel: Is this about Amanda, right?

Evan: I've tried very hard to keep my personal life out of the office.

Rachel: I know that.

Evan: But Cory Publishing is a family business and loyalties run deep.

Rachel: And that's beginning to be a problem for you.

Evan: Well, lately it seems that the boundaries between what's business and what's personal aren't too clearly defined by anyone.

Rachel: Especially not for Amanda and Sam.

Evan: You see, Sam hates me, I can deal with that, but he also hates the fact that I have to work so closely with Amanda. Now she's angry at me because I get along with Vicky.

Rachel: And that would be complicated if you have a friendship with Vicky.

Evan: Donít you see I hate being in the middle of situations that have nothing to do with me?

Rachel: I agree. I donít want you to leave, though, Evan.

Evan: I gave you my word. I donít need my loyalties questioned every time I turn around.

Rachel: I understand that, but I canít run this company without you right now.

Evan: Donít you see it's affecting my personal life, and that's a fine line --

Rachel: Yes.

Evan: That you do not cross with me.

Rachel: I agree.

Evan: Ok, if you agree, I'll stay, but that has to stop.

Rachel: Your private life is your own, Evan. It's none of my business.

Evan: No questions?

Rachel: Of course not. I trust you.

Evan: Say even if I were seeing Vicky?

Rachel: I trust you, Evan.

Evan: Well, Amanda doesn't, not anymore.

Rachel: All right. Well, then why donít you let me handle Amanda?

Stacey: None of this is fair, Cass. Courtney prejudges him, and then Hansen.

Cass: Well, now, wait a minute. I think Courtney had enough on Derek to warrant picking him up.

Stacey: Well, the last time I checked, this was America, Cass, and you were innocent until proven guilty.

Cass: Yeah, and Derek punched out the arresting officer.

Stacey: So he overreacted a little bit.

Cass: Hey, we'll get him off. I'm working on it.

Stacey: I thought the law was going to protect him, but it turned its back on him just like everything else.

Cass: Maybe not.

Stacey: Cass, they broke into his apartment. They didnít even have a warrant.

Cass: Well, they served the warrant on the owner of the building because Derek isnít living there legally.

Stacey: He still has a constitutional right to bail.

Cass: He forfeited most of his rights when he chose to live outside the system.

Stacey: "When he chose"? You think it was his idea to have his parents abandon him? He had to live on the streets. He didnít know where he was going to eat or sleep. He was a kid, Cass. He was alone and he was frightened. Where the hell was the system then?

Cass: I donít know.

Stacey: Yeah. Well, he was a kid with nothing, and the system didnít give a damn about him. Why should he trust it?

Cass: What else has he got?

Stacey: Normal rules never applied to Derek before. Now they do.

Cass: Hey. This is really getting to you.

Stacey: It's just that for the first time I'm seeing the system for what it really is, and I donít like it.

Cass: You're disillusioned. It happens to every lawyer sooner or later.

Stacey: I just feel so helpless, that's all.

Cass: I know. It's like the paperwork becomes more important than the people. And it's particularly difficult for you because you've always been so idealistic. And there's something else.

Stacey: Great. What's that?

Cass: You're emotionally involved with your client.

Stacey: Well, that didnít stop you from defending Felicia.

Cass: And I lost the case and she went to jail.

Stacey: But, Cass --

Cass: Do you really want to do what's best for Derek?

Stacey: You know I do.

Cass: Then let me handle his defense.

Stacey: Oh, and I'm supposed to just walk away from him like everybody else?

Cass: You donít have to be his lawyer to be his friend.

Stacey: He trusts me.

Cass: Look, I was too close, I blew it. The same thing can happen to you.

Stacey: I appreciate the offer, Cass, but I'm going to do this myself.

Cass: Where are you going?

Stacey: I have to see Derek.

Derek: I donít want trouble with you, Steel, and you donít want trouble with me.

Steel: I like trouble.

Derek: Make it easy on yourself, Steel, and just walk away.

Steel: You know, this place has a high accident rate, especially for guys who donít know who's running things.

Derek: Nobody runs me.

Steel: We'll see.

Inmate: Oh.

Second inmate: All right.

Derek: I've met runts like you a thousand times before.

Guard: Hey. You got a problem in here?

Derek: No. The door just closed.

Guard: Yeah, right. Ok, you two lovebirds, out.

Steel: You're dead meat, Scarface.

Russ: See something you like?

Josie: Oh. Yeah, just about everything.

Russ: Show me what you want to buy.

Josie: Oh, oh, I was -- I was just looking.

Russ: Oh, come on now. You must have found something that you just canít live without. Olivia always does.

Josie: You mean I can really get something?

Russ: Well, why not?

Josie: Oh. Mama would never approve of that.

Russ: Oh, wait, wait, wait just a minute now. This is my house, not your motherís.

Josie: Well, ok. I'll add up whatever I -- whatever I want to get, and I'll tell you the total.

Russ: You donít have to. Just get my credit card number from Olivia. She's got it memorized.

Josie: No, I want to make sure it's all right, you know?

Russ: Honey, I'm sure it's going to be fine.

Josie: Well, I'm not.

Russ: Oh, come on. Now, what's the matter?

Josie: Are you sure that I'm ever going to fit in here?

Russ: Well, of course I'm sure. Donít you feel at home here?

Josie: Well, it's not your fault that I donít. I mean, you've gone out of your way to make me feel --

Russ: Honey, I just want you to be comfortable, that's all. What can I do?

Josie: Nothing, nothing. Everything -- everything is perfect.

Russ: Ah. A little too perfect, huh?

Josie: Well, it's kind of like living in a museum.

[Russ laughs]

Josie: I mean, I'm afraid I'm going to break something if I pick it up.

Russ: You have to get over that. This is your home now.

Josie: That's something that I -- that I donít understand.

Russ: What do you mean?

Josie: Well, my mom told you about me, and then all of a sudden, here I am.

Russ: I wanted to get to know you.

Josie: Well, I -- I hope you wonít be sorry.

Russ: Now, how could I ever be sorry?

Josie: I know Mrs. Matthews isnít pleased with me living here.

Russ: Oh. Now, look, that is just Liz. I mean, she just hasn't gotten used to the idea yet. You give her a couple of weeks, she'll be your biggest fan.

Josie: Olivia wonít.

Russ: Well, that is not your fault. That's just the situation, the way it is.

Josie: I mean, I know she's not used to sharing you.

Russ: She's not used to sharing anything. She'll come around, donít worry.

Josie: But why should she have to? I mean, it's not fair I just come barging in here.

Russ: I think it's good for her. It's about time she learned to think of someone besides herself.

Josie: I donít want to come in between you two.

Russ: You wonít. But you have to remember you're my daughter, too, and I do want to get to know you, and you're going to have to give me that chance.

Josie: But suppose I'm not what you expect?

Russ: Honey, I donít expect anything.

Josie: Are you sure?

Russ: I'm positive. Now, there's enough room in my heart for both of you, so please stop worrying about it, huh?

Josie: I hope Olivia feels that way.

Russ: Olivia -- well, she'll get over it. Donít worry, she'll adjust. She'll come around.

Olivia: But Jake seems so nice.

Donna: "Nice"? Well, he's certainly aware of his effect on women. Why do you think I'm packing my daughters' clothes?

Olivia: She left him?

Donna: Hopefully, this time it'll be for good. With Jake you never know.

Olivia: What happened?

Donna: If I tell you this, you canít repeat it.

Olivia: Oh, I wouldnít.

Donna: I'm only telling you this for your own good.

Olivia: Why? Was it terrible?

Donna: Jake slept with Marleyís sister.

Olivia: His own wife's sister?

Donna: You getting the picture now? It broke up two marriages --

Olivia: I guess it would.

Donna: And there was a child involved.

Olivia: That's so sad.

Donna: Yes, it is. Believe me, stay away from Jake McKinnon.

Olivia: I guess I should.

Donna: Olivia, you should be out having fun dating a nice college boy your own age.

Olivia: Now you sound just like my father.

Donna: Your father would be furious if he found out that you were here.

Olivia: No, he wouldnít. He has other things on his mind these days.

Jake: Cab's here.

Olivia: I still want to make that tape.

Jake: We'll talk about it.

Donna: You go on home now. You donít keep the cab driver waiting. They hate that.

Olivia: Bye, Jake.

Jake: Now, you -- you're not going anywhere.

Jamie: Can I get you anything?

Vicky: Yes. My son.

Jamie: You aren't going to change anything by acting like this.

Vicky: I thought things couldn't be changed. Isnít that why you took me to court?

Jamie: I know it's hard for you to accept the decision.

Vicky: No. Jamie, I love being told by some judge when I can see my own child.

Jamie: I'm sorry it had to end like this.

Vicky: No, you're not. You wanted it to.

Jamie: That's not true.

Vicky: And now you and your family are celebrating. It's like a farewell to Vicky party, right?

Jamie: I hoped since this was settled we could try to get along. The judge is right. It would make it easier for Steven.

Vicky: Oh, you think this is settled?

Jamie: If we both accept the visitation schedules, so will he.

Vicky: Uh-huh.

Jamie: I just want what's best.

Vicky: For who?

Jamie: For Steven.

Vicky: The only person this is good for is you, Jamie. Steven and I miss each other. You know what he does now? He takes his little fist and he grabs on to my clothes like he's afraid I'm going to leave. This is all scaring him, Jamie.

Jamie: You're imagining things.

Vicky: You couldn't handle your feelings for me, so you walked out.

Jamie: Whatever you say, Vicky.

Vicky: But that wasn't enough, was it? Now you want to punish me and you're using our son to do it.

Jamie: Why would I use my own son?

Vicky: Because you canít control me or the way you feel about me. I mess up your sterile little world.

Jamie: This is about Steven!

Vicky: Stop hiding behind Steven. Sticking to that schedule isnít going to make things any better.

Jamie: It will.

Vicky: It's a mess. It's a big, ugly mess, and it's still hurting a lot of people.

Jamie: You donít have to tell me that, Vicky. I'm one of those people.

Vicky: Because you wonít admit the feelings you have for me.

Jamie: I feel nothing for you but pity.

Vicky: You're lying.

Jamie: It's over.

Vicky: Then why haven't you filed for a divorce?

Jamie: This is just the kind of scene the judge wanted to avoid. I think you'd better go.

Vicky: I want Steven on Saturday on time.

Jamie: I'll see you then.

Vicky: Jamie, remember something. We're still Stevenís parents. We're going to be tied together for the rest of our lives. You can change a lot of things, but you canít change that.

[Chatter]

[Inmates whistle]

Guard: You've got 10 minutes.

Inmate: I'll buy you a Lamborghini.

Guard: All right, all right.

[Pounding on bars]

[Chatter stops]

Stacey: Hi. How you doing?

Derek: Ok.

Stacey: I've been worried about you.

Derek: You shouldnít have come here.

Stacey: You need a lawyer.

Derek: This is not the place for you.

Stacey: I've been here before. I'm totally used to this.

Derek: No one is totally used to this.

Stacey: Come on. We only have a few minutes to talk.

Derek: Well, how'd you get in here?

Stacey: I knew the right people.

Derek: Well, why didnít they take me to the visiting room?

Stacey: Because I pulled some strings. What does it matter? Isnít this --?

Derek: Donít.

Stacey: What's the matter? Derek --

Derek: No. You canít come here again.

Stacey: Well, I have to. I'm working on getting you out of here.

Derek: No, you arenít. I'm getting a new lawyer.

Staceyís voice: I took your word and I went ahead and I took drastic measures.

Jamieís voice: You mean besides moving up the court date?

Staceyís voice: Yes.

Jamieís voice: What are they?

Staceyís voice: It's something that could prove that Vickyís an unfit mother. I'm waiting on a call right now.

Jamieís voice: Can you tell me more?

Staceyís voice: I'm not so sure that you'd approve of it. You know, I told you right from the start, if we're going to go ahead and win this case, we had to pull out all the stops.

Jamie: I know you did.

Stacey: Jamie, no one is going to come out of this unscarred.

Jamie: I hope I'm doing the right thing. One minute, Stacey, I -- I'm ready to do anything to keep my son, and then next minute, I think maybe I'm setting him up for a fall.

Stacey: Try not to think too much about it, ok? You're doing the right thing. I know you are.

Jamie: Last night you mentioned some drastic measures. What did you mean?

Stacey: Well, I'll tell you about them if I feel we have to use them. In the meantime, donít worry so much, ok?

Jamie: That was bad, wasn't it?

Stacey: It wasn't good.

Jamie: I have to win this. Use anything you've got. Anything.

Evan: Pardon me. I was just going to use the phone, but I guess it can wait.

Jamie: Hey, Evan, listen. Do you have a minute?

Evan: Yeah. What is it?

Jamie: It's this.

Evan: So what, am I supposed to say something?

Jamie: No, I am. I'm sorry.

Evan: Ok.

Jamie: I really had no idea about this. Stacey had a photographer following Vicky.

Evan: Yeah, that's what I hear.

Jamie: It was supposed to be a last resort. I didnít find out about these until we were in court.

Evan: It seems the trick worked, huh?

Jamie: I never had any intentions of you getting caught in the middle of this.

Evan: Just lucky me, right?

Jamie: I really am sorry. I hope we can get past this.

Evan: Well, I wasn't the one hurt most by those photographs, was I, Jamie? But just for the record, those photographs are very misleading.

Jamie: You donít have to explain.

Evan: No, but I want to explain to you. I was with Vicky because I was helping her through a bad time.

Jamie: Yeah, yeah, she puts on a pretty good show. She was just here a few minutes ago, but I know her, and it's usually a cover.

Evan: Her guard was down when I was with her.

Jamie: Oh, what do you mean?

Evan: She's in a lot of pain, Jamie. Now, I think it would be best for Steven and just everyone if you just let her go.

Jamie: "Let her go"?

Evan: Divorce her.

Jamie: I intend to do that.

Evan: It's not what she wants.

Jamie: I know that.

Evan: It's what you want?

Jamie: There's no other way.

Evan: No? Are you sure you're not going to try to win her back one more time?

Jake: What the hell do you think you're doing?

Donna: I'm doing Marley a favor.

Jake: Oh, you're just full of favors, aren't you, Donna? First, you parachute in here. Then you send Olivia home.

Donna: It's where she belongs.

Jake: That's also where you belong.

Donna: Jake, I didnít think you'd be here.

Jake: You could have let your fingers do the walking.

Donna: I just wanted it done.

Jake: What done? What the hell are you doing packing up Marleyís stuff?

Donna: She called me.

Jake: Oh -- I talked to you at lunch, Donna. You said you had not heard from her.

Donna: She just called me a little while ago.

Jake: What did she have to say?

Donna: She wants me to send her some of her winter things. She's not coming back, Jake.

Jake: Shut up, Donna. Just shut up, all right?

Donna: I'm almost finished.

Jake: I could have done that, you know? I could have sent the stuff to her.

Donna: Where are her boots?

Jake: They're in the closet.

Jake: Wait a minute. This is an excuse.

Donna: What?

Jake: Donna, you came here to see me.

Donna: I told you I didnít even know you were here, Jake.

Jake: Oh, get out of town. My motorcycle's in the driveway.

Donna: I didnít notice your motorcycle.

Jake: Donna, did you find it a little hard to let me go?

Donna: What an absurd idea.

Jake: You donít have anybody to abuse. There's nobody you can feel superior to.

Donna: Jake, I tolerated you because of Marley.

Jake: No, I tolerated you, and that's over, too. Marley and I split up, you must be very happy about that, so you donít get to meddle in my life anymore. The keys.

Donna: What keys?

Jake: The keys you used to get in the front door. You donít need them anymore.

Vicky: Jake?

Jake: Give them to me.

Vicky: Jake!

Donna: That's Victoria.

Jake: Very good. Honey, we're in the bedroom!

Donna: I donít believe this.

Vicky: Mother?

Jake: Hey, hey, hey, the gang is all here.

Stacey: Another lawyer?

Derek: Yeah.

Stacey: You donít mean that.

Derek: You blew the bail hearing, right? I want somebody who's going to get me out of here.

Stacey: Oh, I get it. It's your damn pride, isnít it?

Derek: Pride? In here?

Stacey: Yeah, especially in here. You donít want me to see you like this.

Derek: I'd do better with somebody else.

Stacey: Tough.

Derek: It's my call.

Stacey: I donít care. I'm representing you whether you like it or not.

Derek: I'm firing you.

Stacey: Try it.

Derek: Ok, damn it, you're fired!

Stacey: You feel any better?

Derek: No.

Stacey: Ok. I'm not going to quit till I get you out of here.

Derek: If you get me out of here.

Stacey: Cass said he would help.

Derek: He did?

Stacey: Yes, and we are going to beat this.

Derek: I'm used to taking care of things myself.

Stacey: I know, but you canít take care of yourself this time.

Derek: Can you handle this?

Stacey: I donít know. I think we might both be in over our heads. But I know that we need each other. Please donít pull away from me.

Derek: I canít. I tried.

Guard: Time's up.

Stacey: I have to go.

Derek: Ok.

Stacey: I'll be back soon.

Inmate: Hey, beautiful.

[Whistling]

Inmate: I'm a singer, babe. Let's do it.

Stacey: I'll be back.

Derek: No.

Stacey: Ok.

Russ: Oh, hi, sweetheart.

Olivia: Hi.

Russ: Where have you been?

Olivia: Well, I've been cooling off.

Russ: Oh, have you, now?

Olivia: Mm-hmm. Listen, I'm sorry I stormed out of here earlier. I know you need to spend time with Josie.

Russ: Yes, but I wanted to spend time with you, too, honey.

Olivia: I know. And I've come to a decision.

Russ: Ah.

Olivia: I'm not going to be jealous anymore. I still have the best father in the whole world.

Russ: Oh, well, now, I donít know so much about that.

Olivia: Oh, I do. And from now on I'll help with Josie.

Russ: Oh, that's great, that's great. Just try to be a friend to her. That's what she needs.

Olivia: Ok.

Russ: She's still very uneasy about being here.

Olivia: Sure, I understand.

Russ: Good.

Olivia: Where is she, by the way?

Russ: Oh, she went over to the Coryís' for a barbecue.

Olivia: It sounds like fun.

Russ: Yeah. But she had a visitor, you know, after you left, a young fellow named Reuben? Do you know him?

Olivia: Sure, I know Reuben.

Russ: You do know him?

Olivia: Well, I donít know him exactly. I met him in New York. She was living with him.

Russ: Living with him?

Olivia: Oh, well, staying with him. They shared a room in one of those cheap hotels. It was probably all they could afford.

Russ: So, in other words, he was looking out for her?

Olivia: That's what Josie says.

Russ: Well, what kind of a guy is he? I mean, who does he hang out with? Do you know?

Olivia: Gee, I really wish I knew for Josieís sake. You know, I donít know what kind of an upbringing her mother gave her, but it wasn't very much. She's so naive.

Russ: Hmm. Well, you and I -- we're going to have to look out for her from now on.

Olivia: Ok. You always know exactly what to do.

Reuben: Huh. Yo. This place is nice, man.

Cass: Well, well, well. How you doing, Reuben? I thought you were history around here.

Reuben: Well, that depends on you guys. You got any openings?

Cass: Did you tell the parole board you were back?

Reuben: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, and they wasn't too happy about it, neither.

Cass: Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no.

Reuben: No, no.

Cass: We tried to cover for you, but they've heard just about every story in the book. It wore pretty thin after a while.

Reuben: Yeah, I'm sorry I cut out on you, man.

Cass: Apology accepted.

Reuben: I mean, I was just trying to help somebody out and I guess I got carried away.

Cass: I heard all about you and Josie.

Reuben: Oh, boy, here we go.

Cass: No. No lectures.

Reuben: No?

Cass: You broke a few rules to help a friend. That's ok. I just wished you'd explained it to the parole board. You see, they take a very, very dim view of being stood up.

Reuben: I know, and that was really dumb.

Cass: It was really dumb, Reuben. You're lucky you had me around to fix it for you.

Reuben: You did? I mean, I did? Are you serious?

Cass: It's a one-time-only favor.

Reuben: Yes, Winthrop! Thank you!

Cass: Reuben --

Reuben: Thank you!

Cass: Gee, control yourself.

Reuben: It wonít happen again! It will not happen again!

Cass: It better not happen again.

Reuben: Thank you, thank you. It wonít. It will not.

Cass: Are you going to be around for a while? I got to go up and change. I have a dinner tonight.

Reuben: Um -- oh, ok, ok. I'll be there -- hey, if you want, I can mess up the desk for you or --

Cass: No, answering the phone will suffice.

Reuben: You got it. You got it.

Josie: Reuben, I thought I might find you here.

Cass: Josie, welcome back.

Josie: Thanks.

Cass: I'll see you later. If Stacey comes in, tell her to wait for me, ok?

Reuben: Ok. You got it. Look, I'm really sorry --

Josie: Look, I've been thinking about what -- go ahead.

Reuben: No, no, you go, all right?

Josie: No. You go first.

Reuben: All right, I will. Look, I'm really sorry if I hurt your feelings, Josie.

Josie: I just -- I want you to understand why I'm doing this. I mean, it is really important to me what you think.

Reuben: I was an idiot, ok? I mean, we can still hang out. I just want to do it on my turf.

Josie: Well, my turf's not too bad, and I've got a pool table.

Reuben: Yeah, that's great. I mean, that's great for you if that's what you want. It's just I donít want to hang out there, that's all. I mean, I got to work. And I got my old job back.

Josie: You did?

Reuben: Yeah, and as a matter of fact, Winthrop -- he even sweet-talked my parole officer, so everything's cool.

Josie: Oh, Reuben, I'm so happy for you. I knew things would work out.

Reuben: You know something? My whole life changed when I met you. Hey, you're like my good-luck charm or something.

Josie: Oh, no, no, no. Mama always says that you make your own luck. Why did I say that?

Reuben: Ha-ha. Because your mom's a smart lady and now you're starting to realize that.

Josie: Reuben, I want you to understand.

Reuben: I am.

Josie: That's my past.

Reuben: No, no, no. That's your mom. Your mom canít be a part of your past.

Josie: I want Matt to be a part of my life, I want to spend my life with him, and his family is like the Matthews family -- a good family. I need to learn how they do things.

Reuben: What things?

Josie: I need to belong. I need to feel like I fit in. I need to be good enough.

Reuben: Oh. I see. I see now. So if you move in with the good doctor, then you'll be good enough for Matt?

Josie: I want to live in a house with a big green lawn that someone else cuts. Man, I walked by those houses all my life.

Reuben: Josie, you're good enough for that. You've always been good enough for that. You're better than that.

Josie: You really think so?

Reuben: I know so, and so does Matt. The only one you got to show now is yourself.

Vicky: What are you doing here? Why are Marleyís clothes on the bed?

Donna: I'm packing them. She asked me to.

Vicky: So you talked to her?

Donna: Yes, today. What are you doing here?

Vicky: I came to see Jake.

Jake: Oh, here I am.

Vicky: What you said at the trial -- I never got to thank you. I know you did it for Steven.

Jake: Yeah, it was a really tough break you got yesterday, you know.

Vicky: Yeah, well, the Coryís donít mind! They're having a party.

Donna: Are you serious?

Vicky: Hmm.

Donna: That's disgusting. Did you actually see this?

Vicky: Yeah, well, I went over to see Steven. He's had a fever on and off.

Jake: Is he ok?

Vicky: Well, Jamie says that he is. I didnít get a chance to see him.

Donna: They wouldnít let you see Steven?

Vicky: He went to the park with Sam and Alli.

Jake: Yeah, it sounds like Sam gets to spend more time with the kid than you do.

Vicky: It looks that way. Jamie made it very clear that I canít see Steven except when the judge said that I can.

Jake: Well, that's bull. Why donít you have your hot-shot attorney do something about it?

Vicky: He canít yet, Jake. So I can just forget about last-minute outings, trips to the zoo. We'll just have to wait until it's scheduled.

Donna: Oh, oh, oh --

Vicky: God, I thought the trial was the worst day of my life, but it's just gotten worse.

Donna: We'll see about that.

Vicky: Mother, please -- what? Mother, you cannot do anything.

Donna: I can try.

Vicky: We are meeting Dad at Tops for dinner. Donít do anything to make him mad.

Donna: I'll be there. I wonít be late. Jake, I'm coming back for those clothes later.

Jake: We'll see you.

Vicky: She's going to the Coryís'.

Jake: I know that.

Vicky: It's not going to help anything.

Jake: Well, I wouldnít be so sure. If there's one thing I learned about Donna, she's something else. This is the first time

Rachel: Did you hear me, Amanda? I asked you to go into the house and find Evan.

Amanda: Mom, I thought you wanted me to help. I'm helping.

Rachel: Would you stop being so childish?

Amanda: What?

Rachel: You've got to learn how to work with Evan.

Amanda: Why?

Rachel: He wants to leave, Amanda.

Amanda: Because of me?

Rachel: I'm not going to lose Evan because you canít handle your feelings.

Amanda: Mom, he's on Vickyís side.

Rachel: I've told you and told you, Vicky is not your problem. Vicky is Jamieís problem and Evanís problem, if that's what he wants.

Amanda: Oh, great.

Rachel: You'd better concentrate on Alli and Sam, young lady.

Amanda: I am.

Rachel: I hope so, because I told Evan this family's problems are not going to interfere in the running of Cory Enterprises. And you're going to back me up.

Amanda: All right.

Rachel: Now, you and Evan will continue with the projects you were working on together. And as soon as you finish with them, I will make sure that your assignments are different.

Amanda: Mom, that's not the only issue here.

Rachel: It is tonight!

Amanda: Fine.

Jamie: Ready for a good time?

Amanda: No, and neither are you.

Rachel: How did it go with Vicky?

Jamie: Well, I think I convinced her to stick to the visitation plan, at least for the time being.

Amanda: Yeah, well, with Vicky, you never know.

Rachel: Amanda --

Jamie: Well, if she tampers with the judge's decision, she could lose Steven altogether. She knows that.

Rachel: I hope this gets easier.

Jamie: So do I.

Rachel: Look, you two, I know a lot's been going on, but just for tonight, could we forget all of this? Could we just be grateful for everything we've got right now --?

Jamie: Yeah.

Rachel: And just enjoy being together?

Jamie: Sounds good to me.

Rachel: Ok?

Donna: How touching.

Cass: Oh -- stupid machine --

Stacey: Hey, Cass.

Cass: I was wondering if you were going to show up.

Stacey: Oh, sorry I'm late.

Cass: Donít apologize to me. Save it for the Coryís. We're probably holding up dinner.

Stacey: Ok, listen, you go on by yourself.

Cass: I canít do that.

Stacey: I'm not ready.

Cass: So get ready.

Stacey: No. I have more work to do on this case.

Cass: I thought that was it.

Stacey: You'll explain to them, wonít you, please?

Cass: How? You won Jamieís custody case, remember? I canít walk in there without you.

Stacey: Cass, I'm really not in a party mood.

Cass: Stacey, look at me.

Stacey: What?

Cass: You canít put your life on hold just because Derek is in jail.

Stacey: I have to get him out of there.

Cass: And you will.

Stacey: Cass, I just came from seeing him. He looked scared.

Cass: If anybody can handle those inmates, Derek can.

Stacey: It's not the inmates that I'm worried about. I know he can handle them. His being caged up like that -- it makes him crazy.

Cass: Stacey, you canít work on one case day and night. You lose perspective. You miss the obvious.

Stacey: Oh, you think so?

Cass: I know so. We will get him released.

Stacey: I know you're right.

Cass: It's just not going to happen tonight. Look, you need to eat, donít you? We'll drop by and see Jamie, and we wonít stay long, and we'll start fresh tomorrow.

Stacey: I just donít feel like going out when Derek is in there.

Cass: Jamie will be very disappointed if you donít show up.

Stacey: Ok. I'll go. Just give me a minute to get ready, all right?

Cass: Yeah, ok.

Stacey: Cass --

Cass: What?

Stacey: You meant what you said before, didnít you?

Cass: Every word of it. Derek is going to be fine.

Stacey: He didnít look fine.

Cass: Trust me, he can take care of himself. I hope.

Cass: Yes!

Steel: They're not going to feed us any more of that American chop suey garbage again.

Inmate: Oh, quit complaining.

Steel: You've got a big mouth today. You know that? Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! What's the matter with you? You trying to show off for your new pal here?

Inmate: It was an accident, Steel.

Second inmate: Somebody pushed him, man.

Steel: Yeah? Nobody apologized. I think it's time to teach you guys some manners. Lesson number one -- the correct way to hold a knife. You learning anything yet, been?

Derek: Back off, Steel.

Steel: Going to make me, or are you just going to stand there and flap your lips?
