Vicky: Well, that's great.

Donna: Well, I'm frankly quite surprised.

Vicky: Why? They've been going together for weeks, months.

Donna: Oh, I know. It's just --

Vicky: Just what?

Donna: Nothing. If Sharlene is the one John wants --

Vicky: They make a great couple.

Donna: By all means, I wish them the best.

Vicky: I got to call them.

Donna: You don't have to. You can see them.

Vicky: When? When?

Donna: Here. Your father's decided to throw them a little engagement party.

Vicky: Tonight?

Donna: Yes, just a little impromptu thing. Of course, he's run off to the office and left the whole thing to me.

Vicky: Oh.

Donna: Now, there's something that you should know.

Vicky: Yeah? Thank you.

Donna: Sharlene is a Frame.

Vicky: I already know that.

Donna: I fought this tooth and nail, but they insisted that I invite Jamie.

Vicky: Is that a problem for you?

Donna: Of course it's a problem.

Vicky: Well, it's not for me. Are there any other Frames on the guest list?

Donna: Yes. Josie is coming with Matthew.

Vicky: Evan Bates is a Frame.

Donna: Yes, I spoke to him. He's coming.

Vicky: Oh, good. I'm sure Sharlene will be glad to have him here.

Donna: What's going on with you and Evan Bates?

[Doorbell rings]

Evan: Is that you, Speedy? I'm in the bedroom. Come in. Let's just see how speedy you are.

Judge: Ms. Winthrop, we're waiting.

Stacey: Yes, your honor.

Judge: Are you or are you not going to present an argument?

Stacey: I am here, your honor, not for a simple bail hearing, but to find out if this court will ever treat my client fairly, if indeed there is such a thing as justice at all for Derek Dane.

Olivia: So, bad time?

Matt: No, I'm just having a little snack, actually.

Olivia: Do you ever eat anything healthy?

Matt: Well, I'm mad about tofu.

Olivia: Right.

Matt: The only problem is we're all out.

Olivia: Well, I hope your soda's free of caffeine.

Matt: It's loaded with it and I love it.

Olivia: You have mustard on your nose.

Matt: I do? Where?

Olivia: In the middle.

Matt: Right here?

Olivia: No.

Matt: Yeah?

Olivia: Yeah, that's it.

Matt: Come and sit down and we'll talk.

Olivia: No, no, I can't stay. I just came to see how everything was --

Matt: You're just trying to see what kind of junk food I'm eating, or what?

Olivia: I came to see how you were doing. I mean, if Josie's going to France, you must be kind of upset.

Matt: Oh, wait, wait, wait. You didn't hear.

Olivia: Hear what?

Matt: She's not going.

Olivia: What?

Matt: She's not going. She's decided to stay in Bay City. She's telling your dad right now.

Olivia: But I thought she was so excited about it.

Matt: Well, she was at first, but then she realized she couldn't stay away.

Olivia: From you?

Matt: Well, not just from me, but -- well, she'll tell you about it.

Olivia: Well, father must be pretty unhappy.

Matt: Well, he'll understand.

Olivia: I mean, he was dying to have him with her -- with him in Europe. I mean, that's all I heard about for weeks. "Josie and I will fly from Paris to London on the 5th, and then we'll go on to Rome, and then Josie and I will rent a car and drive to Florence, and then Josie and I will do this and Josie and I will do that." I mean, my God.

Matt: Wait, wait, wait, wait. He invited you, too, you know.

Olivia: Right. So, busy?

Matt: What? Busy? When, right now?

Olivia: Yeah. I thought maybe you'd like to do something. We could go for a drive or we could go to a movie. You know, I'm dying to see that new Vietnam film, you know.

Matt: Wait, wait, wait. I can't.

Olivia: Oh. Ok, fine.

Matt: No, I was going to go say goodbye to Russ.

Olivia: Well, I'll go by myself, then. I think there's a 5:00 film. I could catch that one.

Matt: Wait a minute. You're going to tell me you're not going to say goodbye to your father?

Olivia: No. No, I'm not.

Liz: You can't do this.

Russ: We have been through this already, Liz.

Liz: We just put this marvelous new addition on the house!

Russ: Yes, Liz.

Liz: What about your social life? You've just started to re-establish yourself.

Russ: Yes, Liz.

Liz: The phone has been ringing off the hook. Your name is appearing in the "View" section of the newspaper almost every week.

Russ: I don't care.

Liz: But I do!

Russ: Well, then you go to all the parties and the galas and the whatevers.

Liz: Russ, please, listen! Postpone the trip.

Russ: This is not an opportunity that can be postponed nor rejected, Liz.

Liz: I mean, they summon you and you go just like the army?

Russ: Oh, look, Liz, please, I am going to miss you. I'm going to miss you very, very much, honey. And I'm very disappointed that Olivia isn't coming with me. But I am thrilled to have this opportunity to spend time with Josie.

Liz: I knew that girl was at the bottom of this.

Russ: Now, just a minute. That girl is my daughter and your niece. And, yes, I am, I'm thrilled that I can have this time with her, to get to know her better.

Liz: I wonder how long that's going to last.

Russ: It's going to last -- hey.

Josie: Hi. Am I interrupting?

Russ: No, no, not at all. You got your packing all done, I hope. We have to leave for the airport in a couple hours.

Josie: Russ --

Russ: And you got a lot of goodbyes to say, you know.

Josie: I only have one goodbye to say.

Russ: Oh, that's -- I thought you would have a --

Josie: To you.

Russ: What?

Josie: I've decided not to go to Europe with you.

Russ: You -- Liz, would you excuse us, please? I want to talk to Josie alone.

Liz: Maybe this will make you come to your senses.

Russ: What is all this about? I mean, how could you change your mind like that?

Josie: It just -- it was the wrong decision in the first place.

Russ: But, honey, you kept saying what a wonderful opportunity it is, and you know how much it means to me.

Josie: I do know how much it means, and that's why saying goodbye is so hard.

Russ: Jo-- I don't understand this.

Josie: It is very important to me that we get to know each other.

Russ: Well, then come with me!

Josie: No, but I didn't finish. It's more important that I get to know myself. I mean, all my life I've felt like I wasn't good enough.

Russ: But that's just because I wasn't around.

Josie: It's not because of anything, and blaming other people and feeling sorry for myself isn't the answer. What matters is if I want to be enough for the people that I care about, I've got to start believing in myself.

Russ: Well, can't you do that with me? I mean, believe in yourself in Europe with me?

Josie: Bay City's my home. My modeling is here and Matthew and my mother. I mean, everything I care about is here, except for you. I have to stay here if I want to start believing in myself. Can you understand? What? What? Why are you looking at me like that?

Russ: I'm very proud -- very proud of you. I hadn't realized how mature you are, how very much I'm going to miss you.

Josie: Well, I'm going to miss you, too. Thank you for understanding.

Russ: You're going to come visit me, right? I'll meet you in Rome, meet you in Paris. We'll do the continent together. How's that?

Josie: Well, I couldn't turn that down.

Russ: And you remember, if you ever need me, ever at all, call me. I'll be on the next plane.

[Doorbell rings]

Russ: Sharlene.

Sharlene: Hi. I came to say goodbye to Josie.

Russ: Well, there's no need.

Sharlene: What?

Josie: I've decided to stay.

Sharlene: You've -- oh, my God. You're staying?

Russ: Right in this house, I hope. I mean, it'll be your home for as long as you like.

Josie: Russ, Russ, thank you, but if it's all right with my mother --

Sharlene: What's all right?

Josie: I'd like to come home, move back into the farm, I mean, at least for now.

Sharlene: Josie. Josie!

Judge: Did I hear correctly, counselor? You're about to give this court a lesson in political science?

Stacey: I wouldn't presume to do that, your honor.

Judge: I sincerely hope not.

Stacey: But I will ask for justice.

Judge: What makes you think that I'm incapable of meting it out?

Stacey: I didn't say that you weren't.

Judge: Well, I'm the court. Who else are you talking about?

Stacey: The system.

Judge: Now, I suggest that perhaps you confine your remarks to something less sweeping, something pertinent to these proceedings.

Stacey: This is pertinent, your honor.

Judge: You're trying my patience, counselor.

Stacey: Since the moment my client was arrested, he's been systematically denied his civil rights.

Judge: Well, he stands before this court. That is his civil right.

Stacey: He is fortunate to stand. They practically beat him senseless in the jail.

Judge: "They"?

Stacey: The guards.

Judge: Have you brought any charges against them?

Stacey: It would be the word of my client against those of the prison guards, county employees.

Judge: Oh, in other words, there were no witnesses, no proof?

Stacey: There never is, your honor, in cases involving people like my client.

Judge: I don't follow.

Stacey: I believe you do follow.

Judge: If I say I don't, I don't.

Stacey: The law was written and is still being written for people of means -- white-collar law. My client has been denied bail. Any middle-class man accused of the same crime would have been walking out of there in a matter of minutes.

Judge: You're being flip, Ms. Winthrop. I'm not amused.

Stacey: I apologize, your honor. But if I am being flip, it's because the laws have made a mockery of my client's rights. Why? Because my client is different. He has no permanent home. He moves from place to place. He dresses and talks and perhaps thinks differently than the rest of society. And because of that, he has been denied his constitutional right to bail and put in a cage.

Judge: You go too far, counselor.

Stacey: And I will go farther, your honor, as far as it takes for this court to deliver justice and offer the same rights that they would give to any other man in this country. I tried to tell Mr. Dane that he could believe in the laws of this country. However, he is not easily convinced. He has faced a life of prejudice because he has no education or opportunity. But he has forged a life for himself, and a good life. Perhaps it's alien to the way the rest of you all in this courtroom live your life. But until now, he has always had his freedom. But his freedom has been taken from him. Equality under the law -- that is all we're asking for. Surely, you won't deny us that.

Derek: Whatever happens, I want you to know you were great.

Stacey: I just hope I was effective.

Judge: I'm prepared to make a ruling.

Evan: Can I get you something?

Jamie: No.

Evan: Would you like to sit down?

Jamie: Thanks. Did you hear the good news about John and Sharlene?

Evan: Yes, I did. I think it's great news.

Jamie: They should be good together.

Evan: I suppose you'll be at the Hudsons' celebration?

Jamie: Hmm. Donna invited me, yeah. I guess that means Vicky will be there.

Evan: Probably.

Jamie: Look, Evan, I want to apologize to you again for what happened with those pictures.

Evan: It's the past, Jamie. I forgive, but I don't forget.

Jamie: Well, then, it must have caused a great deal of trouble between you and Vicky.

Evan: All right, Jamie, what's all this about?

Jamie: What do you mean?

Evan: Well, the sudden interest in my personal life. It's not really my personal life you're interested in, is it? It's Vicky's.

Jamie: That's not true.

Evan: You can save your breath, Jamie. I haven't seen her since the accident.

Jamie: What accident?

Evan: I was with her when her car went off the road.

Jamie: Was anyone hurt?

Evan: No, just the car.

Jamie: It's funny, I was just with Vicky an hour ago. She didn't mention a thing about it.

Evan: She probably didn't think it was a worthy topic of conversation.

Jamie: Well, when exactly did this happen?

Evan: If you want to know about Vicky, ask Vicky, not me.

Jamie: Now, you look here, Evan. First you go after Amanda, and when that didn't pan out, you take off after Vicky. Now, a little word of advice, my friend. You stay away from both of them.

Donna: Well? Are you going to answer me? Don't do that with your tea. What's going on with you and Evan Bates?

Vicky: Nothing is going on with us. I was just curious about the guest list.

Donna: You've been spending a lot of time with him.

Vicky: Oh, have I?

Donna: And yesterday at the spa, you were flirting with him like crazy.

Vicky: Well, I'm a flirty person.

Donna: Victoria, don't double-talk with me. Tell me what's going on.

Vicky: We have fun together.

Donna: It's more than that.

Vicky: All right. He works for the Corys, and he's also Jamie's cousin. It just may come in handy sometime.

Donna: Ah. Ok. Then it's true.

Vicky: What's true?

Donna: Well, I thought that you had accepted this situation with Steven.

Vicky: Steven is my son. He deserves to be with me, and I will not settle for anything but that. I'm going to get him back.

Donna: With Evan's help?

Vicky: Possibly.

Donna: Then this is about Steven?

Vicky: Why do you ask?

Donna: Because you've been hurt. I don't want to see you getting into some emotional entanglement already.

Vicky: Excuse me. I have an errand to run. Oh -- I'll be back.

Sharlene: You are really coming home?

Josie: I guess I should have talked to you sooner.

Sharlene: No, no, it doesn't matter.

Josie: I really didn't know until today.

Sharlene: Josie, I didn't need to know. Your room is ready for you, just the way you left it. All right, maybe you don't like the new drapes I made, but --

Josie: Mama, Mama --

Sharlene: Jos, well, maybe we'll put the old drapes up. I don't care.

Russ: I'll finish packing.

Sharlene: I don't know, maybe you want the big bedroom down the hall.

Josie: Mama, I love my room. That's not what I'm worried about.

Sharlene: Ok. But you are worried?

Josie: Well, I'm not -- I'm not really worried.

Sharlene: Josie, what? Come here. Now, we've got to be honest with one another, from now on, always. It's the most important thing.

Josie: Well, are you sure that John wouldn't rather it just be the two of you?

Sharlene: Oh, Jos, no, no. Honey, you just don't know. He's going to be as happy as I am.

Josie: But you have your own life now, and I just -- I don't want it to be --

Sharlene: The way it was before?

Josie: I'm different now.

Sharlene: Josie, we both are.

Josie: I mean, I have to find out who I am and what I want.

Sharlene: And you're afraid that if you come home --

Josie: Yeah, I'm not a little girl anymore, and I just -- I don't want to start depending on you again.

Sharlene: It's not going to happen. Honey, you have learned so much lately. You've grown up so much. Nothing can change that. I wouldn't want it to.

Josie: So it won't be the same, right?

Sharlene: How can it be? We both have our own lives now. We have men we love, careers. Oh, Jos, my God, look at you. You're a mature young woman. Ain't my baby anymore.

Josie: I never thought I'd hear you say that.

Sharlene: It's not easy to let go. You're going to find that out one day. You know that?

Josie: Yeah, well, that's when I'm going to have lots and lots of kids.

Sharlene: Well, from what I hear, it doesn't make it any easier. Each child has a special hold on you.

Josie: Oh, Mama, I'm -- I'm sorry if I hurt you by running away the way I did.

Sharlene: Honey --

Josie: No, I know that -- I know that you were worried and I just didn't do anything about it.

Sharlene: This is no time for regrets or guilt. You did what you felt you had to do, and it was brave of you to do it. And now it's brave of you to come back.

Josie: I love you.

Sharlene: I want you to know something, though, ok?

Josie: Mm-hmm.

Sharlene: If you decide that you've changed your mind, that you'd like to live somewhere else --

Josie: Mama --

Sharlene: Maybe right here at the Matthews' --

Josie: Mama, I don't think that's going to happen.

Sharlene: But, Josie, if it does, it's all right, because I think we both realize that no matter where we are, however far apart we are, we're still together.

Josie: In our hearts.

Sharlene: In our hearts.

Josie: I am so proud that you're my mother.

Sharlene: You don't know what it means to hear you say that. You don't know.

Judge: That based on a careful review of the record, I must agree with Ms. Winthrop on at least one point. There is no reason to deny bail to Mr. Dane.

Stacey: Yes! We did it!

Judge: Order! Order!

[Judge bangs gavel]

Judge: And while I agree with the content if not the style of Ms. Winthrop's argument, that Mr. Dane must not be denied his civil right, as a matter of fact, I will treat him exactly as I would any other petitioner charged with the same crime. I therefore set bail at $10,000.

Derek: 10,000?

Stacey: No, he's right. That's fair.

Derek: How am I going to get that kind of money?

Stacey: I can call Cass.

Derek: No.

Stacey: Maybe we can reach Felicia.

Lucas: That won't be necessary. I have a cashier's check ready for the court. You're free to go. You can walk right out of here.

Matt: He's leaving in a couple hours, right?

Olivia: Yes, but I'm sure he will be very busy right now. He'll have last-minute packing to do and business calls to make and stuff like that.

Matt: That doesn't mean he doesn't want to see you before he leaves.

Olivia: He'll call me when he arrives in Paris.

Matt: Olivia.

Olivia: It's not as if I'll never see him again.

Matt: Well, it's going to be a long time.

Olivia: He'll survive. So will I.

Matt: Wait a minute. This isn't right. No, this is more than not just right. This is stupid.

Olivia: Father is simply repeating a very old pattern, Matthew.

Matt: He's going to Europe.

Olivia: Right, just like he's gone to a lot of other places. He goes and I go with him. And just when the new place starts to feel a little bit like home, he announces that we're leaving again, and I'm sick and tired of it!

Matt: Aha, now we're getting someplace.

Olivia: And I'll be damned if I'm going to follow him again.

Matt: Ok, so don't follow him. What does that have to do with saying goodbye to him?

Olivia: I won't do that, either.

Matt: Aren't you going to tell him how you feel?

Olivia: He won't care.

Matt: Of course he'll care.

Olivia: He'll be glad if I'm not there. There won't be any messy goodbyes, no guilt.

Matt: He wanted you to go with him, Olivia.

Olivia: Yeah, right.

Matt: He asked you, didn't he?

Olivia: Yes, and he didn't even try to talk me out of it when I said no.

Matt: Yeah, he figured you'd already made up your mind. Who would ever try to talk you out of anything when you've already made up your mind, Olivia?

Olivia: Stop shouting!

Matt: No! I'm trying to get through to your thick head.

Olivia: He didn't try to change my mind because he was too busy planning his future with --

Matt: No.

Olivia: Never mind. I'm going off my diet. Where can I get a good hotdog today?

Matt: Wait a minute. What?

Olivia: I could use a dose of nitrates right now. And you know what else? I hope the movie theater has that butter product on the popcorn.

Matt: Olivia, wait.

Olivia: I can still make the 5:00 if I rush.

Matt: No, no, no, no, hold it right there. I'm not letting you go.

Olivia: You can't stop me.

Matt: This is a mistake, and the person you're going to hurt the most is yourself.

Olivia: I don't want to miss the beginning of the movie.

Matt: Uh-uh-uh-uh. You know how guilty you're going to feel if you don't say goodbye to your father?

Olivia: I'm not prone to guilt. I'll be fine.

Matt: He's your father.

Olivia: I know what I'm doing!

Matt: No, you don't! You're acting self-centered right now!

Olivia: You don't know what I'm acting like or what I'm feeling like. You don't know anything about this!

Matt: You're wrong.

Olivia: I'm leaving.

Matt: No, you're not. I know exactly what you're feeling right now.

Olivia: Get out of my way, Matthew!

Matt: Olivia, you're not going anywhere until I talk to you and you listen to me. Last year I wasn't speaking to my parents, either. The thing is, I didn't give them a second chance. But I realized my mistake. And if I hadn't realized that, I would have been hurt, they would have been hurt, everybody would have been hurt, which brings me to my second point. Parents are people, too. They're not perfect. They make mistakes. Come on. Your father loves you. You love your father. You want to say goodbye to him. You do. I know you do.

Olivia: I'll follow you over to my house.

Matt: Hey, all right.

Olivia: On second thought, you can follow me.

Russ: Well, Josie has decided to move back to Sharlene's.

Liz: The farm? How wonderful! Oh. Oh, of course, I'm going to miss you. But I think it's good that you were able to make a decision that you feel comfortable with.

Josie: Well, I'm glad, too.

Liz: And not that the house isn't a marvelous house, and we did redecorate your room --

Russ: Liz, come on.

Liz: Oh, I'm not trying to make you feel guilty, my dear. What I'm really saying is I believe people are happier when they're living in an environment they feel familiar with.

Russ: We all get the point, Liz.

Liz: Not that I'm not saddened by the situation. Olivia and I are going to miss you. But if it's what Josie wants --

Josie: It is. And I want to be home to help you with the wedding.

Liz and Russ: What wedding?

Sharlene: Oh. Josie, I tell you what, why don't you and Liz go start packing your things, and I'll talk to Russ.

Liz: Well, why should I help her pack? She has hardly anything to pack --

Russ: Liz --

Liz: It won't take five minutes.

Russ: Honey, please just go and help her.

Sharlene: John and I are getting married, probably in November.

Russ: Well, congratulations.

Sharlene: Thank you. Thank you. I'm very happy.

Russ: I'm glad.

Sharlene: So is he, or at least that's what he tells me.

Russ: Oh, I'm sure he is. He'd be a fool not to be.

Sharlene: That's good of you to say.

Russ: I wish I had.

Sharlene: What?

Russ: Appreciated you more, given you another chance.

Sharlene: We both made mistakes.

Russ: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Except with Josie.

Sharlene: She was the one right thing.

Russ: You remember -- remember one thing -- in a marriage --

Sharlene: Oh, Russ, please, please, please. No -- no lectures, ok?

Russ: Well, what makes you think I was going to lecture you?

Sharlene: Oh, come on. I did live with you, remember?

Russ: Yeah, well, all right, I was about to lecture you, and maybe you'll indulge me just this once. I am going away, after all.

Sharlene: Just this once.

Russ: Honesty -- I mean, it means everything -- marriage, friendship, they just don't work without it.

Sharlene: Yeah.

Russ: Oh, hell, Sharlene, come here. Now, you look out for our little girl, will you?

Sharlene: Yeah, I will.

[Doorbell rings]

Sharlene: Are you going to get the door?

Russ: Yeah.

Sharlene: I'll help Josie pack.

Russ: Ahem.

Jamie: So when's the next boat to Paris, huh?

Russ: Jamie, come in. You've come to say goodbye?

Jamie: Oh, not goodbye.

Au revoir, bon voyage,

bon appetit, huh? Hey, listen, we're really going to miss you.

Russ: Oh, thank you. I'm going to miss you, too.

Jamie: But it's not going to be for long, though. Mom tells me it might only be for a couple of months.

Russ: Yeah, I hope so. I hope so.

Jamie: What is it, Russ? Are you having second thoughts about this trip?

Russ: Oh, no, no. I'm just thinking about mistakes made long ago, and I wish that things could be different. I can't change anything now, but -- oh, this is bad news, regrets about what might have been.

Jamie: Yeah, I know the feeling.

[Rock music plays]

[Doorbell rings]

Evan: This better be you, Speedy. Listen, I'm back in the bedroom. Come on in. It's open. The envelope is on the bureau, and I got a little something for you up here.

Vicky: What's the something you have for me?

Evan: I got a big tip.

Vicky: Oh, this visit is free.

Evan: For some reason, I don't believe that.

Vicky: Oh.

Singer: Look at little sister hey, hey, hey

Vicky: Oh! Jason from California.

Vicky: Why, Evan Bates. I have no idea what you're talking about.

Evan: Think about it, Vicky. Every time I get involved with you, it cost me.

Vicky: Oh, what, are you talking about the sleazy pictures in the courtroom?

Evan: No, I'm talking about the accident. I missed a major meeting because of you.

Vicky: Sorry you ever met me?

Evan: Well, that's still in litigation. I haven't quite made up my mind.

Vicky: You don't look too disappointed now.

Evan: Do me a favor and throw me that towel, would you? Hurry up.

Vicky: Sure, sure!

[Evan laughs]

Evan: You a little wet? So why are you here?

Vicky: I heard that you are going to the engagement party. Am I to assume our date is canceled?

Evan: Oh, no, no, no. I was going to call you when I got done here. Are you going?

Vicky: If you'll be my escort.

Evan: Sure. Why not?

Vicky: Great.

Evan: So what time shall I pick you up?

Vicky: An hour?

Evan: All right, I'll be there.

Vicky: You know this is going to be a pretty public affair.

Evan: So?

Vicky: So people might assume that we're an item.

Evan: Oh, is that it, Vicky?

Vicky: Is what it?

Evan: Is that what all this is about, the publicity? Is that what you want?

Vicky: I'll see you in an hour.

Evan: Wait a minute, Vicky. I'm warning you, I do not like being used.

Vicky: Your towel is slipping.

Singer: Every beat of my heart

Matt: Remind me never to follow you again, never again.

Olivia: What was your hurry anyway?

Matt: You'd get places faster if you'd walk, you know, save a little gas.

Olivia: Yes, well, I never would have pegged you as a tailgater.

Matt: Tailgater? Wha-- did you look at the speedometer once the whole time?

Olivia: Yes, I did, and I was going 35.

Matt: 10. 10 miles an hour. You were going 10 miles an hour.

Olivia: Why are we arguing?

Matt: Because --

Olivia: Huh?

Matt: Because we always argue. That's why.

Olivia: I want to thank you.

Matt: Do my ears deceive me? Is this Olivia standing in front of me, thanking me?

Olivia: Yes.

Matt: Has an alien invaded your body and taken over your brain?

Olivia: Stop. I'm really happy that you talked me into this, ok?

Matt: Well, I'd take more credit, but you're such a pushover that -- hey.

Josie: Matthew, hi!

Matt: Hey! How you doing?

Josie: I'm glad you're here, because you can help me lug out my luggage.

Matt: Lug out your -- what, are you moving out?

Josie: Yep, I'm moving home to the farm.

Matt: Hey, that's great. But how's your mom going to take this news?

Sharlene: Oh, boy, another mouth to feed. Boy, the phone ringing off the wall, I'll never make it to the bathroom again --

Matt: Oh, I think it's great.

Sharlene: Lord knows.

Josie: Oh, and Mr. and Mrs. Hudson are having a party for my mom and John.

Sharlene: Yeah.

Matt: Oh, I hope I'm invited.

Josie: Of course you are. It's tonight.

Sharlene: I know. Why don't we double-date?

Josie: Oh.

Matt: Sounds good to me.

Josie: You know, I can't believe it. Everything is just the way it should be.

Sharlene: You got that right. So?

Matt: I think I'm going to wear --

Josie: A tux.

Matt: No, no, no.

Josie: Mom, what are you going to wear?

Stacey: Lucas, for a moment, I didn't know who you were, and then I thought this whole thing's got to be some kind of a joke.

Lucas: No, that was no joke, and neither was that speech you gave the judge. Wow.

Stacey: Why didn't you tell me that you had talked to Lucas?

Derek: No reason to.

Lucas: I think what Stacey means is you shouldn't keep things from your attorney.

Stacey: Absolutely, and especially if somebody is going to help you.

Derek: Yeah, I'm lucky that you showed up with the check.

Lucas: Hey, you're not lucky. You're innocent.

Derek: Yeah, but if you hadn't have shown, I'd still be in that jail sweating how to make bail, so I owe you one.

Lucas: Derek, I meant what I said. I want to do anything I can for you.

[Phone rings]

Stacey: Winthrop & Edwards. Oh, yes. No, as a matter of fact, I have him in the other room. Can you hold on a second? Terrific. If you guys will excuse me for one minute.

Lucas: That's some lawyer you have.

Derek: I know. Hey, I don't want you worried about your bail money.

Lucas: Come on, it's the furthest thing from my mind.

Derek: Because I'm not going to skip town. I'm going to stay here and I'm going to find that red swan.

Lucas: I'm glad to hear that. Got any ideas?

Stacey: I hate to break this up, but I've got a lot of work to do, Derek, and I have to talk to you first. Do you mind?

Lucas: No, I was just leaving anyway. Look, thanks and congratulations. You were terrific.

Stacey: Thank you.

Lucas: I'll be talking to you.

Derek: I appreciate you being there, Lucas.

Lucas: Hey, forget it.

Derek: Gosh, I'm so glad I'm out of that jail cell. I can't believe it. What's wrong?

Stacey: Lucas. I don't trust him at all.

Donna: Oh. You're the first.

Jamie: Is that bad luck?

Donna: Come in.

Jamie: Thank you.

Donna: Can I get you something?

Jamie: No, no, thank you, not right now. Is Michael around?

Donna: He's upstairs getting dressed.

Jamie: So --

Donna: He'll be right down.

Jamie: Good, good.

Donna: How are things at the hospital?

Jamie: Oh, never a dull moment there.

Donna: Well, I guess that's good, I suppose.

Jamie: This place looks wonderful.

Donna: Oh, thank you, thank you.

Jamie: Very festive. Festive.

Donna: This is very difficult.

Jamie: What?

Donna: Smiling, pretending, being civil.

Jamie: With me?

Donna: I'm not able to be the gracious hostess I normally am.

Jamie: Yeah, I can tell.

Donna: You are my soon-to-be ex-son-in-law.

Jamie: Everybody's got to be something.

Donna: Is that supposed to be funny?

Jamie: Sorry.

Donna: After everything that you've done --

Jamie: Me?

Donna: Taking Steven from Victoria and degrading her that way --

Jamie: Now, look -- now, wait a minute --

Donna: And she -- I can't for the life of me understand why, other than the fact that she's naturally sweet, she says the most lovely things about you.

Jamie: Oh, really? Well, what exactly does she say about me?

Donna: Why do you care?

Russ: What are you doing here all alone?

Olivia: Well, Josie and Matthew are walking Sharlene out to her car.

Russ: Oh.

Olivia: You must be awfully disappointed that Josie's not going with you.

Russ: Well, I was more disappointed when you weren't here. I thought we weren't going to get to say goodbye.

Olivia: Oh, I didn't mean -- I just didn't know.

Russ: All right, all right, sweetheart. I love you so much.

Olivia: Oh, father, I'm so sorry.

Russ: Don't be. You're here now.

Olivia: I'm sorry that I've been so angry with you lately.

Russ: I understand. I'd worry if you weren't angry with me from time to time.

Olivia: But there was no reason.

Russ: Yes, yes, there certainly was.

Olivia: It's just that I need you so much. Too much, I think.

Russ: Is that why you don't want to go to Europe with me?

Olivia: I think that I need to be on my own, stop relying on you.

Russ: Makes sense to me.

Olivia: I need to find out that I can get through the days without knowing you approved of every move I made. Why are you looking at me like that?

Russ: Well, that's exactly what Josie said.

Olivia: Oh. What a coincidence.

Russ: You will try to get to know her better while I'm gone?

Olivia: I'm going to miss you so much.

Russ: I'm going to miss you, too, sweetheart. But you're not going to be alone. I mean, you'll have Liz, you'll have Josie. You will keep in touch with her, won't you?

Olivia: She can look after herself. She's not a baby.

Russ: All right, honey, I'm sorry. I put that the wrong way. What I mean is that I would just like you to -- to let her know that you're there for her if she needs you. Nothing would make me happier than for you two to get closer.

Olivia: Why does this always happen?

Russ: What? What's the matter?

Olivia: Even now, when I'm trying to say goodbye to you. Why does every conversation we have always have to come back to Josie?

Derek: So Frankie thinks that Lucas took the red swan.

Stacey: Frankie thinks that maybe Lucas took it, and so does Cass.

Derek: Because he needed the money?

Stacey: Yes.

Derek: Lucas is hurting financially?

Stacey: It happens.

Derek: So how do you explain today, Stacey, and that cashier's check?

Stacey: Well, maybe he's not flat broke.

Derek: Stacey, I am free now because of Lucas. He put up the bail money that got me out of jail.

Stacey: Yes, but why --

Derek: Then why is he going to put me back on the street when he knows that the first thing I'm going to do is go right after that red swan?

Stacey: Maybe Lucas doesn't have the swan. Maybe he thinks that you could lead him to it.

Derek: 10 grand, for that?

Stacey: I don't know. There's a lot of loose ends in this one.

Derek: No, there's got to be somebody else. Other people did know that it was here, right?

Stacey: Yes, but not many. The swan was put in the safe just hours before it was stolen.

Derek: Ok, so who did know that it was here?

Stacey: The Corys knew it was here, everybody in this office. Hold on a second.

Derek: What?

Stacey: Caroline. Caroline Stafford knew that it was here.

Derek: From the art gallery?

Stacey: Yes. She was going to come over and appraise it. What if Caroline has the red swan?

Russ: Olivia, honey, I only meant that I wanted you --

Olivia: I know what you meant.

Russ: Is it so wrong for me to want you two to love each other?

Olivia: We don't even know each other.

Russ: But you will.

Olivia: We have nothing in common.

Russ: Olivia, honey, you have me.

Olivia: You just can't will this to happen. She's awkward around me, and I feel uncomfortable around her. I never know what to say to her. There's all these long pauses in our conversations. It's --

Russ: All of that will change, honey.

Olivia: I'm not sure I want it to.

Russ: But you --

Liz: Russ, dear, I made you some food for your plane ride --

Russ: Oh, Liz, I'm trying to talk to Olivia, please.

Liz: But you can't miss your flight!

Russ: Liz!

Liz: First there's the cab ride, then when you get there, the luggage has to be taken care of, then --

Russ: Oh, God. I know, I know what needs to be done, Liz. You might not have noticed it, but I do get to travel quite a lot.

Liz: Oh, but you're late quite a lot.

Russ: Oh, God. All right, give me that. I'm out of here. I'm leaving right now.

Liz: Well, do you have everything? Your electric shaver? Your antacid tablets? Your --

Russ: I have everything! I have everything, except for my wonderful family. I'm going to miss you terribly.

Olivia: I love you, father.

Russ: I love you, too, baby. I'll always love you. I'm going to call you just as soon as I get there, and I'm going to send you a whole lot of presents.

Olivia: You don't have to do that.

Russ: Oh, I don't, huh?

Olivia: Uh-uh.

Russ: The last time I didn't do that, I got into a lot of trouble.

Olivia: You just take care of yourself, ok?

Russ: You, too. And you think about what I said, huh?

Russ: Josie. Now, don't you feel guilty now about not coming with me, huh? I think you made a very wise decision. I'm very proud of you. And we are going to get to spend an awful lot of time together.

Josie: I hope so.

Russ: I'm going to see to it. What I want most, more than anything, is just for you to be happy.

Josie: Well, I'm going to try.

Russ: You do that. I'm very glad I found you, baby. Matthew, you take care of this girl, huh? Take care of my daughter. On her to take care of me, too.

Russ: Whatever works. You just love her.

Liz: Are you just going to stand here gushing, or are you going to go to the airport?

Russ: Oh, for God's sake. Fine, I am finished gushing. I am out of here right now.

Matt: Let me help you with your bags.

Liz: Here, well, let me take some. I'll take this and --

Josie: Can I help?

Liz: No, no, we can do everything, thanks.

Stacey: We have to talk to Caroline.

Derek: Well, she's having a new show.

Stacey: That's right, next week.

Derek: She's going to have all kinds of people coming in and out of her gallery looking at pieces of art, right?

Stacey: Right.

Derek: She's got the perfect opportunity.

Stacey: Wait a second. I don't understand what you're saying.

Derek: Ok, if she has the red swan, now's the perfect chance for her to move it someplace else.

Stacey: Right, because of all the traffic going in and out.

Derek: Yeah. But it's also possible that she might have moved it to a safe place already.

Stacey: So then, what do we do?

Derek: Somebody's got to get into that gallery, tonight.

Jamie: I don't care what Vicky said. I really don't.

Donna: You don't?

Jamie: No, I was just making conversation.

Donna: Jamie, you're a terrible liar. You always have been.

Jamie: Well, whatever you say, Donna.

Donna: I say I don't believe you for a minute.

Jamie: Hello, Vicky.

Vicky: Hello, Jamie.

Jamie: Evan.

Evan: Jamie.

Jamie: You two get here together?

Vicky: Well, that makes sense, doesn't it, that we arrived together? Evan and I came here together.
