Olivia: Well, I'd really like to thank you for inviting me.

Rachel: Oh, you're very welcome.

Olivia: Is this the exact date the university was founded?

Rachel: Yes.

Olivia: Well, I guess that's why they call it "Founders day," isnít it?

Rachel: Yes, I guess it is. Actually, my husband used to have a gathering every year at this time and we'd give a short talk, so the president called and asked if Matthew would do it this year.

Olivia: You must be proud.

Rachel: Yes, we are. Matthew is having a few of his friends over, and he is very nervous.

Olivia: Really?

Matt: Is -- is that ok? If I lose these, I'll die, you know that?

Mitch: You're going to be fine.

Matt: I wish Josie would get here. She said she'd come around 1:00. What time is it now?

Mitch: So did Felicia, but they're going to be here. Donít worry about it.

Olivia: How's it going?

Matt: Uh -- donít even know my name, actually.

Olivia: Oh, come on, come.

Matt: You want to hear a speech?

Olivia: Sure.

Matt: Follow me.

Olivia: Are you reading it or just using notes?

Matt: I donít know what I'm doing at this point.

Olivia: Matthew, why are you so nervous about this?

Matt: Well, it's kind of stupid.

Olivia: What?

Matt: I feel like Macís watching me.

Olivia: If he is, he's watching you with joy. Come on, let's practice.

Mitch: You ok?

Rachel: Yep, I'm fine.

Mitch: You sure?

Rachel: Mm-hmm.

Mitch: You know, I've known you quite a while. I have the feeling something's wrong.

Rachel: You're right. Something happened yesterday.

Mitch: What?

Rachel: It's as though this red swan is taking over my life.

John: Hi.

Sharlene: Hello.

Josie: Hello.

John: I ran into town for some supplies.

Sharlene: Did you order those six-by-eights?

John: Yep. You sure look nice.

Josie: Oh, thank you.

John: You're welcome.

Sharlene: Josie, I forgot -- Reuben called.

Josie: Oh, what does he want?

Sharlene: I donít know what he wants. He was excited about going to lunch.

Josie: Oh. He's got a hot date.

Sharlene: So, will you be working all day?

Josie: No. Actually, I'm going to the Coryís. Matthewís giving a speech for some of the people from the college. It's something that Mr. Cory used to do.

Sharlene: Oh. That sounds lovely.

Josie: Oh, and first I have to stop by and see Lucas because he has to ok my outfit for the cover of "Sophisticate." Oh, I have got to run.

Sharlene: Oh, goodbye.

Josie: I'll see you later. Bye, John.

John: Bye.

Sharlene: You look beautiful.

Josie: Thank you.

John: What's wrong?

Sharlene: What?

John: When Josie mentioned that she was going to visit Lucas, you turned white as a ghost. What's wrong?

Felicia: Yeah.

Lucas: Hi.

Felicia: Hi.

Lucas: You got a minute?

Felicia: That's about all I have. Can you make it fast?

Lucas: Sure. What's the rush?

Felicia: Mitchís son is giving a talk to the university people and I'm very late. What's on your mind?

Lucas: I'm thinking of getting married.

Lucas: You surprised?

Felicia: Yeah, a little. Who is it?

Lucas: Iris.

Felicia: Iris.

Lucas: Yeah.

Felicia: Uh-huh. Well, each to their own. I got to find my keys.

Lucas: Well, can I help?

Felicia: No, I donít think so.

Lucas: Uh -- well, what do they look like?

Felicia: They look like keys!

Lucas: Well, donít take my head off.

Felicia: I'm sorry. I just donít want to be late to the Coryís, ok?

Lucas: You see, Iris and I have gotten very close the past few months.

Felicia: I just didnít think it was that serious.

Lucas: She understands me like no one's understood me for a long, long time.

Felicia: Well, I would think there'd be a little more to it than just that.

Lucas: Well, there is.

Felicia: I see.

Lucas: Look, nobody's getting any younger. I mean, I keep thinking about putting down roots somewhere. Being alone all the time can be hell.

Felicia: So Iris fulfills all your needs?

Lucas: Right. Like I said when I came over, I'm just thinking about it. What do you think?

Felicia: I think it sounds like a corporate merger more than a marriage.

Lucas: Oh.

Felicia: I mean, you haven't said once you loved her.

Lucas: So you donít think it's a good idea?

Felicia: Luke, I am a romance writer, remember?

Lucas: I know.

Felicia: And I'm a damn good one, even if I do say so myself.

Lucas: Great one.

Felicia: And I write romance, romance that leads to marriage, marriage because of chemistry.

Lucas: Well, there's something there.

Felicia: Yeah, I'm sure.

Lucas: So what do you think of her?

Felicia: What, Iris?

Lucas: Yeah.

Felicia: Iris is -- Iris has a -- I like the way she dresses, ok?

Lucas: Come on, Fanny. We can be honest with one another.

Felicia: Ok. Ok. I donít think she's right for you.

Lucas: You donít?

Felicia: No. I mean, a lot of people probably think, including yourself, that you are this tough, untouchable kind of guy who would be perfect for an ice princess like Iris.

Lucas: So what's the problem?

Felicia: You're not like that, Luke. You were this sweet, sensitive kid that -- you wanted all the good things out of life.

Lucas: I'm still looking.

Felicia: You're not going to find them in Iris.

Felicia: Oh -- there are my keys. Good. Ok, uh -- let's see, have I forgotten anything?

Sharlene: Nothing's wrong. You know me. I'm just -- I'm still trying to protect my little girl.

John: Protect her from what?

Sharlene: I -- I -- nothing, probably. I just -- sometimes I wonder what goes on at those photo sessions, that's all.

John: I thought you'd been to one.

Sharlene: Well, I did, but it was -- that was -- I just feel so left out.

John: She's her own woman now.

Sharlene: I know she's her own woman. And she can make her own decisions and she's capable of leading her own life and --

John: Yes.

Sharlene: And --

John: Thanks to you.

Sharlene: Sometimes I sound so silly.

John: No, you donít. You sound like you care a lot.

Sharlene: You feel so good. How come you always know when I need to be held?

John: Oh, I hold you for entirely selfish reasons.

Sharlene: Have I told you yet today that you're the best thing that ever happened to me?

John: I donít think so.

Sharlene: Really?

John: Maybe only twice.

Sharlene: Twice?

John: That's -- that's not like you.

Josie: Mom, your car wonít start!

Sharlene: Oh, no, hon--

John: Donít panic. I'll take a look at it.

Josie: I hate this! I canít be -- I canít be late. I'm just starting. What's Lucas going to think?

John: Josie, Josie, Josie, donít get excited, ok? Why donít you come into town with me? It's on my way. All right?

Josie: Great. Yeah, can we leave right now?

John: Yes, we can leave right now. Go and hop in the truck.

Josie: Ok, thanks.

John: All right, I'll be right there.

Josie: Ok.

Sharlene: Thank you.

John: No problem. This way I get to go in with her and check the place out for you.

Sharlene: How can you be so good to me, hmm?

John: It's easy. I love you.

Sharlene: Me, too.

John: Bye.

Sharlene: Bye.

Frankie: Who is it?

Cass: It's Cass.

Frankie: Oh, great. What do you want?

Cass: What, are you going to leave me standing around out here like some vacuum cleaner salesman? Open up. Gee, you're too kind.

Frankie: So what do you want?

Cass: Well, I haven't heard from you since the other day.

Frankie: I am undercover, Cass. Unavailable. Oh -- how is Caroline, by the way?

Cass: When you went to private-eye school, didnít they ever teach you about reporting in?

Frankie: I told you that it would be too risky to be seen together. And besides, there's nothing new to report.

Cass: Oh, come on. You found out that Iris was trying to see if Mac had written a final will.

Frankie: I reported that.

Cass: And you were going to check to see if Lucas already had it.

Frankie: Nothing to report.

Cass: We need information.

Frankie: Hey, what do you think I am? Some hack that calls in every hour to tell you that there's nothing new to report?

Cass: Frankie, I would like to hear from you.

Frankie: Yeah?

Cass: Yeah.

Frankie: Hey, will you stop it with the binoculars already?

Cass: What?

Frankie: Lucas left half an hour ago.

Cass: Where did he go?

Frankie: Well, how do I know?

Cass: Well, do you think you could put a little extra effort into trying to nail this guy for us?

Frankie: Even if he's not guilty?

Cass: What?

Frankie: As far as I know, this guy is in the clear. I will let you know when I know. Right now I'm late, so excuse me.

Cass: Hold it. I haven't finished with you yet.

Frankie: Well, that's too bad because I have finished with you.

Cass: Frankie, I said hold it. Frankie --

Caroline: Hello, Frankie, I thought that --

Frankie: Caroline, hi. Boy, this is a surprise.

Caroline: Obviously, you two are more of an item than I thought.

Cass: An item? Oh, I love this -- this is too much. She thinks that you and I are an item.

Frankie: How did you know I live here?

Caroline: Your aunt Sharlene was very helpful. I certainly never expected to see you here.

Cass: The first time -- the only time I ever come here and somebody I care about sees me. Donít you just love it?

Frankie: Oh, buzz off, Winthrop. Nobody asked you to come here and nobody is asking you to stay.

Cass: This woman has been nothing but bad luck ever since the first day I saw her.

Frankie: And this jerk thinks that I still work for him. That's what it boils down to.

Cass: Oh, yeah, right, sure. I suppose you had nothing to do with screwing up our entire filing system, huh?

Frankie: Ow!

Cass: The only reason I came over here was to see if, by any chance, you happened to walk off with the Phillips file. Grab it. I can only hope and pray that this woman -- and I use that term quite loosely -- never enters my life again.

Caroline: So, you lost the Phillips file?

Cass: Yes.

Frankie: No.

Caroline: What?

Cass: Well, she claims she never touched them.

Frankie: And he doesn't want to admit that he handled those files himself and that he lost them himself.

Caroline: Do you have something against the light, Frankie?

Frankie: What? Uh -- well, it is bad for your skin, you know.

Caroline: Of course.

Frankie: What did you want to see me about anyway?

Caroline: Well, I was thinking, seeing we never finished our chat of the other evening, that we'd have lunch. But you're kind of busy.

Frankie: Yeah. I am. But not with him, thank God. I've got to meet with my aunt about a wedding, so if you'll excuse me, please, I have to get my coat.

Cass: Oh, you're excused, all right.

Frankie: Oh, shut up.

Cass: Well, if you're still hungry, how about lunch with me?

Caroline: Oh. You're sure you want that?

Cass: Well, of course I'm sure.

Caroline: Frankie certainly has strange taste, doesn't she?

Cass: Oh, well, I -- donít get me started on Frankie's taste. I mean, let's not waste our time talking about it. In fact, why donít we go to my office and have lunch? That way we can be alone.

Caroline: You want to be alone with me?

Cass: Oh, the sooner the better.

[British accent] Walk this way.

Reuben: Um -- we'd like to start off with a bottle of wine, please. The best you got.

Waiter: White or red, sir?

Reuben: Um -- red, but make sure it's the best.

Tess: Reuben, are you sure you can afford a place like this? It looks pretty --

Reuben: No, it's -- it's no problem. It's not a problem. I like it when they put flowers on the table like that. Donít you?

Tess: I never expected anything quite this lavish for our first date.

Reuben: Oh, yeah? Well, let me tell you something, girl -- you better get used to it because when Reuben shows, the money flows.

Tess: Oh, come on.

Reuben: No, I'm serious. I told you I was doing pretty good with Winthrop and Edwards, didnít I? This -- this is my style now.

Tess: Ok.

Reuben: Besides, I really wanted this date to be special.

Tess: Why?

Reuben: Because you give me a chance to prove myself. I like that.

Tess: Shows I'm open-minded?

Reuben: Well, either that or you are totally gullible.

Tess: Thanks.

Reuben: Oh. I really like talking to you.

Tess: Good.

Reuben: I donít know, it's just -- it's easy. I donít know why, but it is. I just feel -- I feel like I donít have to pretend when I'm with you.

Tess: Well, Reuben, you do have a little problem in that area.

Reuben: What area?

Tess: Pretending.

Reuben: Sometimes. Um -- but I'm working on that, though. I mean, Josie -- she's good with that.

Tess: With what?

Reuben: At helping me out. You know, she -- she pulled me out of some tough times before.

Tess: Well, you did the same for her.

Reuben: Yeah, but she's special. A lot like you.

Tess: You're so sweet.

Reuben: Hey, man, get that out of my face! What's the matter with you? Canít you just pour, please? You mind filling it up?

Reuben: I tell you, man.

Tess: Thank you.

Reuben: She said "thank you."

Waiter: You're welcome.

Reuben: Thanks. Now, see, I'd be wrong if I donít give him no tip, right? The wine looks good, right?

Tess: Looks great. Mmm, this looks like one of those places where only the men get to see the prices.

Rachel: It was as though she knew everything about the red swan.

Mitch: She explained to you that there was a myth?

Rachel: Yes, absolutely, and she --

Mitch: What?

Rachel: It was as though she knew what I was feeling, as though she knew who I was.

Mitch: Maybe she did.

Rachel: What?

Mitch: Well, I mean, it's like, you know, almost everybody in Bay City knows who you are. Your photograph is in the paper once a month.

Rachel: I suppose so, but then she didnít even work there. I mean, the man said he worked alone and he'd always worked alone.

Mitch: So she just happened to be in the bookstore, she knew something about art, and she just happened to be standing there.

Rachel: No, but it was so much more strange than that.

Mitch: Not necessarily.

Rachel: I wish somebody else had seen her.

Mitch: Look, donít blow this out of proportion, ok?

Rachel: You think I'm doing that?

Mitch: The important thing is you had a conversation with her, you felt better afterwards.

Rachel: Yes, absolutely.

Mitch: So just let it go at that.

Rachel: You mean it just happened?

Mitch: Right. So what was this myth she told you about?

Rachel: You know, you're right. It just happened. It was just a moment like this moment.

Mitch: Right.

Rachel: Thank you for talking to me. I feel better.

Mitch: Good.

Rachel: You know, you're always here when I need somebody to talk to.

Matt: Ok, if I can just remember that "self-made man" line.

Olivia: Oh, you will. You're going to be great.

Matt: Oh, sure. Oh -- have you seen Josie?

Rachel: No, darling. None of the guests arrived yet, but they will. Here, turn around.

Mitch: Where's Felicia? She was ready to go when I left.

Rachel: How are you feeling?

Olivia: He's going to be great.

Matt: Oh, I wish I had her confidence. I keep thinking I'm going to look like a fool or something.

Mitch: You wonít.

Rachel: No, of course you wonít.

Matt: Well, even if I do, at least both my parents are here with me. If you're like us, youíll never want

Frankie: And this one has a train that just wonít quit. It is definitely you.

Sharlene: I want a simple wedding.

Frankie: Sharlene, you can have this thing catered, you can have a dress with a train that wonít quit, you can have all the guys lined up in tuxedos, and it can still be simple.

Sharlene: We'll see.

Frankie: Ooh, I hate it when you say that. Sharlene, you have got to let go sometime. Why not at your wedding?

Sharlene: Come on, Frankie. This is a big decision.

Frankie: Oh, well. At least you're marrying Mr. Wonderful.

Sharlene: Yes, I am. I feel pretty lucky, too.

Frankie: Well, when you meet a man like that, everything just sort of falls into place, doesn't it?

Sharlene: Sure does. So how's it going with Cass?

Frankie: Ugh. Cass who?

Sharlene: Uh-oh.

Frankie: Nobody can have a relationship with that evil, maniacal mess, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Now, wait a minute, I thought --

Frankie: I mean, this guy is such a jerk. So why bother, you know? And besides, I've got my hands full with Lucas. He is more than a full-time job.

Sharlene: Yeah, how's that going?

Frankie: Let me tell you something. Lucas is a pretty complicated guy, but so far he hasn't done anything illegal. As a matter of fact, he has given me the best job I've ever had, and he at least treats me like I'm an intelligent human being.

Sharlene: Well, be careful with him.

Frankie: What?

Sharlene: I -- I just mean that sometimes you donít know a person as well as you think you do.

Josie: John, hey, I probably can get a cab from here to the Coryís, so you donít need to wait. Thanks.

John: Oh, well, it was my pleasure.

Lucas: Could you step on it, Josie? We got a lot --

Josie: Oh, sure. Right, right away.

John: Busy schedule, huh?

Lucas: That never changes.

John: Ah. Well, I guess -- guess I'd better get going.

Lucas: Well, no, I didnít mean you had to leave.

John: No, I donít want to interrupt.

Lucas: Oh, you're not interrupting. And incidentally, congratulations again. I'm sure that you and Sharlene will be very happy.

John: Well, thank you.

Lucas: You know, I guess that Josieís mother is a little bit concerned about her coming into the big world now and stopping by a man's suite to pick up her clothes and, you know, things like that. You want to look around or something, it'd be fine.

John: It's that obvious, huh?

Lucas: Donít worry, I think it's great. I really do. It shows good instincts as a parent.

John: Yeah, Sharleneís quite a lady.

Lucas: Yeah. You know, I'm going to tell Iris that we have to keep her more informed on -- on Josieís progress.

John: I'm sure that Sharlene would appreciate it.

Lucas: As a matter of fact, we should have a meeting with her sometime, something informal. You, too. You're part of the family now.

John: Well, good. I'd like that.

Lucas: We'll do it, then.

John: Great. You know, maybe you would like to come out to the farm sometime and have dinner with us.

Lucas: That'd be great. Let's -- let's just pick a date.

John: Any day is fine. I know that --

Lucas: Well, let me see.

John: Any day would make Sharlene happy.

Lucas: Only problem is -- oh, my schedule is so heavy, I'll tell you.

John: I can imagine.

Lucas: Yeah. Well, that's interesting -- the only day I have free in the next two weeks is tonight.

John: Well, then let's make it tonight.

Lucas: You sure?

John: Yeah, I'm sure. I know that Sharlene is free. We were planning on going to a movie or something, so --

Lucas: Terrific. Um -- what time?

John: Well, they always say "dinner at 8:00," so why donít we try then?

Lucas: Great. I'll tell Iris.

John: Good. See you out at the farm at 8:00, then.

Lucas: Bye-bye.

John: So long.

Josie: Well, here it is. Oh -- Iris said not to pay any attention to the hem.

Lucas: Great. It's almost perfect.

Josie: Oh, well, good. I'll tell them to mark the hem, and I've really got to get out of here because I'm supposed to meet my friend. He's giving a speech.

Lucas: Well, what are you talking about? You're not going anywhere.

Rachel: Well, it was so nice we could do this.

Man: Yes. Yes. I was very pleased when Matthew said that he would deliver Macís speech this year.

Rachel: Yes, it's nice to make it a Cory tradition.

Mitch: Well, as soon as he gets over the jitters, he'll be just fine.

Man: Oh, I'm sure he will be.

Rachel: Um --

Matt: She's not here. Where is Josie? She said she'd be here!

Olivia: She's probably on her way.

Matt: I could use a little moral support right now.

Olivia: Well, let me help. We were a pretty good team in New York -- when we weren't trying to kill each other.

Matt: Yeah. I just want to do Mac proud.

Olivia: You will. It's a terrific speech.

Matt: Hmm. It's what he taught me. Big shoes to fill, though. I canít do this. I canít do this. What do --

Olivia: Matthew, I canít think of anyone better. Just be yourself. Everything will be fine.

Matt: Thanks, Olivia. Thanks for being here.

Olivia: Hey, break a leg, as they say in show business.

Rachel: Ladies and gentlemen, can I have your attention?

Rachel: As all of you know, my husband had this gathering every year of faculty and students to honor Founder's day.

Matt: They're starting. They're starting. Where's Josie? I canít do this without Josie.

Olivia: Donít think about that now. Think about what you want to say.

Matt: What if I lose my place? What if -- I canít think when I'm nervous?

Olivia: Matthew, look -- sometimes when I get nervous before a performance, I look at someone in the audience and dance for them.

Matt: Do you think that'll work?


Olivia: If you start to break, look at me. I'll be right here by this chair.

Matt: Where? Where are you going to be, right there?

Olivia: Right here. Look, Matthew, nothing is going to go wrong. There's something special about you.


Olivia: You always seem to say the right thing. You did to me in New York.

Man: This is a very special day. We all know that.

Olivia: You are going to be great --

Man: Mac Cory knew it, too.

Olivia: Whether Josieís here or not.

Man: Every year, he chose to honor this day.

Olivia: Ok?

Matt: Ok.

Man: We all miss him. But we're also honored to have Matthew, the next generation, speak with us today. So, without further comment, I give you Matthew Cory.

Felicia: Hello, this is Mrs. Blake. To whom am I speaking? Oh, Hilda. Hi. No, no, listen, donít disturb Mrs. Cory. I actually wanted to leave a message for Mitch. Right. Would you just tell him I'm delayed? Yeah, I canít get my car out of the garage because somebody has locked their keys into their car and they canít move -- never mind. Um -- no, it's a little complicated. Just tell Mitch -- never mind. Never mind, Hilda. I donít want to disturb anybody. It's Matthewís day. Yeah, I'm sure he's preoccupied. All right. Yeah. Thank you, no message. No. Thank you. Ok. All right. I hope I haven't missed everything. Ok. Damn you, Lucas.

Tess: Come on. Do you always tease everybody like that?

Reuben: Yeah, sometimes. It depends on how much I like the girl.

Waiter: Your dessert menus.

Tess: Thank you.

Reuben: Yeah, thanks, man.

Tess: Mmm. Everything looks so wonderful.

Reuben: Yeah, yeah, it looks -- looks good. It's wonderful.

Tess: What?

Reuben: No, nothing.

Tess: What?

Reuben: It's nothing.

Tess: What? Come on, is this another one of your jokes?

Reuben: It just looks like you have something on the side of your face or something like that.

Tess: Is it food?

Reuben: I really donít know what it is.

Tess: I'd better take a peek. I'll be right back.

Reuben: All right, all right. You know, take your time. It's all right. 62, 62 -- with the tip, dessert -- yes! Thank you. Thank you, God.

Tess: I didnít see anything.

Reuben: Oh -- um -- I donít know what it is. I donít see it no more, either.

Tess: Oh.

Reuben: I donít know. So, you ready to order dessert now?

Tess: Yeah, but first I want to say something.

Reuben: Ok, what?

Tess: Thank you for the wonderful lunch. It was really, really nice. I mean it.

Reuben: Um -- you're welcome. Um -- but the date's not over yet. We're -- after this we're going to go over to the Coryís. They're having a party over there.

Tess: Oh, yeah?

Reuben: Yeah. You know, Matt Cory -- he's a friend of mine. So he and Josie -- they always do stuff like that.

Tess: That sounds like fun.

Reuben: Yeah. And we'll go. But one thing to keep in mind is not to let them intimidate you or nothing like that. I mean, they -- they're rich. I mean, beaucoup money.

Tess: Ok.

Reuben: All right, so just do whatever I do, ok, because, I mean, I'm used to this. I mean, I've been to these things many, many times, all right? So just follow my lead.

Tess: All right, I will.

Reuben: All right.

Reuben: Let's eat.

Caroline: You're not going to make it ring by staring at it.

Cass: I'm sorry.

Caroline: Expecting a call from Mr. Phillips?

Cass: Who?

Caroline: The file that Frankie lost?

Cass: Oh, right. No. No, no.

Caroline: You were pretty upset that she lost that file. In fact, wasn't that the reason why you went to her apartment?

Cass: Let's forget about her, shall we?

Caroline: Well, I donít know. There's still something pretty strange about all this.

Cass: Nothing strange here. It's just you and me and the tuna fish.

Caroline: Well, I'm still not clear on why we're even here.

Cass: I told you, so that we could be alone.

Caroline: But all you keep doing is staring at the phone, darling.

Cass: And what a beautiful phone it is, too.

Caroline: You are strange sometimes.

Cass: It's part of my charm.

Caroline: I'm serious, though. Last week, when you decided to date Frankie --

Cass: Worst mistake of my life.

Caroline: I thought you were moving away from me.

Cass: I couldn't get much closer than I am to you right now. Come on, let's forget about last week. It was an aberration. I wasn't myself. Come on.

Caroline: Did you notice how intent Frankie was with closing those drapes? Hmm?

Cass: No.

Caroline: I did. Obviously, she'd never worked them. It was as if she had never closed them before. And yet she wanted them closed as soon as I came in.

Cass: Hmm.

Caroline: Donít you think that's odd?

Cass: I think that we should concentrate on us.

Caroline: What's wrong?

Cass: What?

Caroline: You donít normally kiss like that.

Cass: I donít?

Caroline: No.

Cass: How do I normally kiss?

Caroline: With a lot more passion.

Cass: Oh. Thanks. Well, I'm -- I'm sorry. I'm just so distracted. This Phillips thing is on my mind so much. I -- I'm sorry.

Caroline: You sure it's not Frankie Frame?

Lucas: That's it. Up, up like that. That's wonderful. That's perfect. Have a few like that shot for the evening gown section. That's great. Ok, now let it fall free, ok? Fall free and -- that's it. That's perfect. Now, look over -- excuse me, excuse me. Look over your shoulder at me, please. Oh, that's great. No, but not that sexy. Get that pout off your mouth. We want your innocence. That's the look. Gorgeous. Good girl. Now, I want Davidson to follow those instructions to the letter. Ok? Good. Go ahead. Now, you two, scoot. Come on, let's go. Whoa, whoa. Thank you.

Josie: Great, because I got to get going.

Lucas: Hold on. Excuse me. We have to talk for a second.

Josie: Ok.

Lucas: Ok, you have something on with your boyfriend this afternoon, I understand?

Josie: That's right.

Lucas: Ok, well, let's get a few things -- a few things clear first, ok? Work comes first. If your love life comes first, goodbye. If your social life comes first, goodbye. If anything comes first before work, goodbye. Ok?

Josie: Ok.

Lucas: That's first every day. Because you're going to run into some conflicts along the line. Do you understand?

Josie: I understand.

Lucas: You sure?

Josie: Yes. Lucas, I know you're taking a chance on me. The last thing I want to do is blow it for you or for me.

Lucas: Ok. Well, get out of here.

Josie: Ok, thanks.

Lucas: I'll see you tonight for dinner.

Josie: What?

Lucas: John is arranging us -- all of us to have dinner at the farm tonight.

Josie: Oh, all right. I'll see you then. Bye -- oh!

Caroline: Oh!

Josie: I am sorry. I got to rush. Bye.

Lucas: Uh-huh. Well, well, well.

Caroline: Hello, Lucas.

Lucas: What brings you here? Oh, and a bottle of champagne. You have some acquisitions for me?

Caroline: No, not this time. It's personal.

Lucas: Oh, personal? I'm honored.

Caroline: No, not you. It's Frankie. I thought I'd bring her a nice little bottle of champagne to celebrate on her new job.

Lucas: I didnít know Frankie was a friend of yours.

Caroline: I think there's a lot you donít know about Frankie Frame.

Matt: Mackenzie Cory believed in this community. He believed in what this university stands for. He was -- he was a fine man. Uh -- one of the things that Mac always stressed was that there was no such thing as a self-made man. Didnít exist. It was a myth. He would say, "People help other people every day of their lives." Young, old people. Rich, poor, strong, weak -- it doesn't matter. We all help each other. We're not islands, we're a community. And we survive together because we work together, we live together. I remember how proud Mac was of me when I was accepted at B.C.U., how surprised I was. No, he was proud that they had accepted me, and proud that I had chosen to attend B.C.U. I still am proud. I always will be. Well, I want to thank you all for coming today, and for your contributions to the growth of B.C.U. Thank you very much.


Woman: That was a great speech.

Second woman: Bravo. Well done.

Matt: Thank you very much.

Man: Excellent.

Matt: Thank you very much.

Rachel: Hey --

Woman: Lovely job.

Mitch: Congratulations. There's nothing to it, see?

Matt: Thanks.

Rachel: Hey, that was wonderful, sweetie.

Matt: Well, I was a little nervous, but --

Rachel: Yeah, that's all right.

Olivia: You got through it all. You were great.

Rachel: I'm so glad we got a chance to do this.

Man: So am I. Thank you, Matthew. You're a very impressive young man.

Matt: Well --

Man: And I mean every word of it. Now, you have to start accepting compliments.

Matt: Well, as Mac said, I had good people behind me. My mom and dad were there with me all the way.

Man: Good.

Lucas: I had a visitor this afternoon.

Frankie: Oh, yeah?

Lucas: Yeah. Caroline Stafford.

Frankie: Oh. Good old Caroline Stafford. Yeah, she does turn up.

Lucas: She had some very interesting things to say about you.

Frankie: Yeah?

Lucas: Mm-hmm.

Frankie: You know, I saw her at the opening at the gallery. That lady was a mess. You know, she's got real problems, let me tell you. She lets her imagination run wild, and she comes up with the craziest things. She was accusing me of the most ridiculous --

Lucas: Caroline Stafford is anything but crazy. She pointed out some very interesting things about you.

Frankie: What?

Lucas: She pointed out that you are quite a woman of mystery.

Frankie: Me?

Lucas: Donít you think it's time that you started telling me the truth?

Man: I meant every word I said. He's a very impressive young man. You obviously did a good job raising him.

Rachel: Well, I think his father had something to do with that.

Man: I'm sure. Now, I'd like to talk to you both about Matthewís grades. Last year, when he had all those problems, Matthew worked especially hard to get his grades up to the level where they should be.

Mitch: Well, he's always been a hard worker.

Man: I'm sure of that. But I understand that he still hasn't decided on a major.

Rachel: Well, we've talked about it. Is that a -- is that a problem?

Mitch: Well, he's still young. It doesn't seem that he has to rush into anything.

Man: That's true. But I think that he should begin looking at his options.

Rachel: Well, we'll discuss it with him.

Mitch: Absolutely.

Man: Good.

Reuben: So, did you get a standing ovation?

Matt: No, no, no.

Olivia: Yes, he did.

Reuben: Oh, well, so what's your major now, modesty 101?

Matt: Any of you guys see Josie?

Olivia: Oh, would you stop worrying? She just got tied up.

Matt: I'm not worrying, I'm --

Olivia: Look, I'll buy you a drink, all right? Come on.

Matt: Oh, thank you.

Olivia: Let's go.

Reuben: Oh, you want a cocktail? Uh -- uh -- hors d'oeuvre, hors d'oeuvre. All right, check it out. This is -- this is salmon with some tomato on it. This is apricot with some meat wrapped around it.

Reuben: And this is -- I really donít know what that is, but, go ahead, take one. Go ahead.

Tess: Thank you.

Reuben: All right, I'll take this one. Thank you very much. Thank you, thank you. There you go.

Tess: Mmm.

Reuben: See, wasn't that easy?

Tess: It's good.

Reuben: Yeah. See, I mean, it's really nothing hard about it.

Tess: Hard about what?

Reuben: Fitting in. You know, just learn a couple of tricks of the trade, and no one would ever know that you didnít grow up in a house like this.

Tess: Um -- actually, Reuben, when we were coming up the driveway, I was thinking this reminds me a lot of the house I grew up in Maryland.

Reuben: In your dreams.

Tess: My father ran the international operations for an oil company. That is, until he started his own bank and we moved to New York.

Reuben: Your father started a bank?

Tess: I know all about hors d'oeuvres. I grew up this way.

Olivia: Why are we coming out here?

Matt: I wanted to find someplace quiet where I could thank you.

Olivia: For what?

Matt: For all that you -- you know, for everything you've done for me today.

Olivia: Hey, listen, after everything you've done for me, just call it even, all right?

Matt: Ok.

Josie: Hi.

Matt: Hey!

Josie: I'm sorry I'm so late.

Olivia: Hi, Josie.

Josie: Hi, Olivia.

Matt: Well, I'm just glad you got here. I was getting worried about you.

Josie: Well, I know I missed your speech.

Matt: Well, that's ok.

Josie: No, it's not. So tell me, how did it go?

Olivia: Terrific.

Matt: Almost terrific. I almost lost my way in the speech. Luckily, Olivia was right there to help me out. Thank you.

Olivia: No problem.

Josie: That was very nice of you, Olivia.

Matt: It sure was. Hey, listen, I'm just glad you're here right now.

Josie: Me, too.

Mitch: Excuse me.

Man: Yeah.

Mitch: Sorry. This guy goes on and on. Are you ok?

Felicia: Yes, I'm fine.

Mitch: What happened? When we spoke, you said you were almost on your way.

Felicia: I couldn't find my keys. And then -- well, things started piling up.

Mitch: You should have heard Matthewís speech.

Felicia: Yeah, I wish I had. Everyone says it's wonderful.

Mitch: It was terrific. He really did a wonderful job. You really missed something.

Felicia: I didnít miss everything.

Mitch: What's wrong, Felicia?

Rachel: Mitch, the president wants to see us again, ok? Hi.

Felicia: Hi.

Mitch: Um -- Felicia and I need to --

Rachel: Oh, I'm sorry. Take your time.

Man: Oh, good, good. Um Ė

Cass: Mmm.

Cass: Ah, this is the perfect combination, isnít it? And we're all friends. Perfect.

Frankie: May I fan you now?

Caroline: I'm looking after the fan. You stick to the fruit.

Cass: Oh, now, ladies, please, no fighting. This is a fantasy.

Caroline: Oh, I'm sorry, darling. Just peace.

Frankie: And harmony.

Cass: Yeah. See, Caroline, what I like about you is your sense of style.

Caroline: Hmm.

Cass: And, Frankie, what I like about you is your sense of fun and adventure.

Caroline: The best of both worlds?

Cass: That's it. Every man is entitled.

Frankie: This is a fantasy, you know.

Cass: Ah! Frankie! Ah! Caroline! Wait, donít -- things were so perfect!

Caroline and Frankie: Choose or loose, Winthrop.

John: Well, I was really impressed with the guy.

Sharlene: Really?

John: Yeah, we got to talking, you know, and he said that he felt he should explain things more to you, and that he and Iris would get together and make sure that you knew what was going on. So I suggested that we all get together for dinner. Turns out the guy's schedule is so incredible that the only time he had available was some time tonight. So I suggested they all come out here to the farm for dinner. We always make too much anyway, so I just said I was sure it'd be ok with you. I guess it's not ok.

Sharlene: No, it's ok.

John: Sharlene, what is it? You had the same kind of reaction this morning when Josie said that she was going over to Lucas'. Now, what's going on?

Sharlene: John, there's -- there's a problem with Lucas. At least, there was a problem.

John: What kind of problem?

Sharlene: John, a long time ago, Lucas -- Lucas and I met.

Frankie: I donít know what you're talking about. We've -- we've had this conversation before, Lucas. The lies have all come out. You canít believe everything that Caroline --

Lucas: Frankie -- you're a very smart woman, I'll give you that. How about giving me the same thing? I know what you've been up to from day one.

Frankie: And just what, pray tell, have I been up to, Lucas?

Lucas: You're spying on me. You're working undercover for Cass Winthrop. Frankie, Frankie, Frankie. What am I going to do about you?
