Ronnie: John, what are you doing here? Isn't it your day off?

John: Well, it was, until Dr. Manhein called in sick. I'm taking his shift.

Ronnie: Oh, medicine is such a glamorous business.

John: [Laughs] Tell me about it.

Ronnie: That boy, I don't know how he does it.

John: What?

Ronnie: Reuben just got his test back.

John: Good news?

Ronnie: Yeah. I mean, he was unconscious all this time and he comes back with nothing.

John: All right!

Ronnie: He is in his room cracking jokes and ordering gourmet brunches..

John: Well, I better go and release him before we create the national debt in the kitchen.

Ronnie: I think the sooner the better.

John: I'll have him out of here before he can say, "whatever."

Ronnie: Ok.

John: Sharlene.

Sharlene: Hi.

John: What are you doing here?

Sharlene: Oh, come on, I can't believe you just asked that.

John: Huh? I don't get it.

Sharlene: You don't know what day this is?

John: Day, day--uh, what day it is?

Sharlene: Well I--I just can't believe it. If you don't know it, I'm certainly not going to tell you.

Sam: I got it, Hilda! Olivia, hi.

Olivia: You are here.

Sam: What?

Olivia: Are you living here now?

Sam: Yeah, for the time being. Come on in.

Olivia: I tried calling the loft several times but... I had no idea you had moved back here.

Sam: I thought it best for Alli.

Olivia: I've been so worried about you two.

Sam: Look, we are fine. As a matter of fact, we've been making up for lost time. You know, hanging out a lot together.

Olivia: Still no word from Amanda?

Sam: No.

Olivia: I cannot believe how calm you are.

Sam: There is no point in getting hysterical, is there?

Olivia: Sam, a few days is one thing, but it has been almost a week! How can she do this to you and Alli?

[Doorbell rings]

Amanda: Hello.

Evan: Amanda... where you been? I've been so worried about you. Hey... what's going on here? What are you feeling? What--what are you thinking?

John: January 25--let's see. It has to have something to do with, like, our first date or something like that.

Sharlene: Hmmm.

John: Our first pizza that we had together!

Sharlene: No.

John: No, no. Oh, I know! I know what it is! I know what it is! It's the time that we went ice skating. You fell down on the ice, twisted your ankle. I picked you up, carried you all the way back home, put you in bed. It was the first time that we-- no, no that wasn't you. Um... I don't know what it was, ok? I don't remember. Whatever it is, I don't remember what it was.

Sharlene: One year ago today--

John: Mm-hmm.

Sharlene: ...I admitted to myself that I really loved you.

John: So what you are telling me is that you have loved me for an entire year.

Sharlene: That is what I'm telling you.

John: I see.

Sharlene: I wrote that in my journal.

John: Ok. Well, in that case I'm going to have to protest.

Sharlene: What?

John: Because I'm not going to be held responsible for anniversaries that you don't tell me about.

Sharlene: It's ok, I forgive you. I do.

John: That's very gracious of you.

Sharlene: Yeah. I'm going to let you make it up to me, too.

John: I thought that you would let me make it up to you.

Sharlene: A very romantic lunch--just the two of us alone.

John: Today?

Sharlene: Mm-hmm.

John: Oh, well, you know, I've got some time off in about an hour. That would be terrific. Why don't you go and pick a restaurant and I'll meet you there?

Sharlene: No, no, no because what I had in mind was something a little more private, like meeting you at home and taking it from there.

John: Ooh, at home?

Sharlene: Mm-hmm. Does that sound good?

John: That sounds great. Why don't you go and chill whatever you have to chill and I'll be along a little bit later to warm whatever I have to warm.

Sharlene: Ok. I have to go to the Pelican and pick up my check, but then I will be home in one hour.

John: It's a date. Bye, wife.

[Giggles] Did I ever tell you I love my wife?

Ronnie: I had a feeling. Uh-oh, here comes our invalid--

Reuben: Yo, Dr. John!

Ronnie: ...Destroying things.

John: Where did you get your driver's license?

Reuben: Whoo!

John: Reuben, what are you doing out of bed?

Reuben: Well, a certain hospital administrator said it was ok.

John: What hospital administrator?

Tess: No.

Reuben: This one.

Tess: No I didn't, no. Well, ok, Reuben bribed me to see his charts.

Ronnie: Mm-hmm.

Reuben: Now, I don't want any double talk from you, or you either, Ronnie.

Ronnie: I didn't say a word.

Reuben: When are you guys going to check me out? Do I got to do it myself?

Ronnie: Wait, I thought you liked it here.

Reuben: I do, but I got a very important mission.

Ronnie: Mm-hmm.

Josie: I can't believe Lucas is actually serious about this farm shoot.. I wish I never had to see any of these clothes again. Look at this. Look at these boots! Did I actually wear these? How embarrassing! I must have looked like a total jerk in all of this stuff. I mean, look at this floral print thing. It's awful!

[Flashback] It's a hard decision for me to make, Dr. Ryder, but I think I want to go through with it as soon as possible. Could I make an appointment for tomorrow? I hope Lucas doesn't make me wear this thing. Maybe I shouldn't even show it to him.

Matthew: All right, all right ok! You hate the clothes, you're sorry you wore them, you know. You are chic and sophisticated and well dressed and big deal.

Josie: What's wrong with you?

Matthew: I'm just a little tired of hearing you talk about your clothes, all right!

Josie: Matthew, why are you acting like this?

Matthew: Listen, I just wish you'd tell me what's really bothering you..

Josie: Isn't it obvious? I mean, I hate the idea of this farm shoot. Now will you stop worrying and help me lug all this stuff out?

Matthew: Ok.

Josie: Please, Matthew. We are going to be late and Lucas will kill me..

Olivia: Is there anything at all that I can do to help?

Sam: No, we are fine, thanks.

Olivia: Can I look after Alli for you? I'm free for the rest of the afternoon. I would be happy to take her to the park.

Sam: Olivia, I have more than enough help with Alli, believe me.

Olivia: Well, are you painting? I could sit for you. We could schedule it around my ballet rehearsals. Mornings usually are best, if that's ok with you.

Sam: Olivia, I don't think that's a good idea. I wouldn't be able to concentrate on painting or anything else until Amanda gets home.

[Doorbell rings]

Olivia: Right, that was stupid.

Sam: No, it wasn't. It was very sweet. But there's really nothing you can do, so...

Olivia: Well, if--if you change your mind and you need to talk--

Liz: Good morning, Hilda. Oh, it's so cold out there. I brought a little care package for Rachel. I would... Olivia.

Olivia: Hello, aunt Liz.

Liz: Olivia, what are you doing here?

Sam: Liz, would you like some coffee or something?

Liz: I want to know what Olivia is doing here.

Sam: She came by to help me with Alli while--

Liz: Will you please let her answer for herself?

Olivia: I came to see how Sam is doing.

Liz: Of course. You couldn't wait once you found out Amanda had gone.

Olivia: Aunt Liz.

Liz: I thought we had talked this through already.

Sam: Talked what through, Liz?

Liz: The way Olivia throws herself at you. Surely you have noticed.

Olivia: You have no right to come in here and say those things!

Liz: Sam, I want to talk to you alone.

Evan: Amanda, you were gone for 4 days.

Amanda: You think I don't know that? I was confused.

Evan: Yeah, but you just don't go and disappear.

Amanda: I didn't know what else to do. I needed to get away and think.

Evan: So, where did you go?

Amanda: Nowhere at first. I just walked around and wondered if I should go home. Wondered if I could go home.

Evan: But you didn't.

Amanda: No.

Evan: Sam is back from New York.

Amanda: I know. I called the house. Hilda told me. Just the thought of going back there and facing him or anybody, I mean, I just started to panic. And--and finally, I just decided to leave town. So, I got on a plane to St. Louis.

Evan: Why would you go there?

Amanda: Because I didn't know anybody there. I just wanted to feel totally anonymous.

Evan: I see.

Amanda: You don't see, you just think that I'm some terrible coward.

Evan: No, I just wish that I could've been there with you. What's the matter, you don't want me to touch you?

Amanda: I told you, I'm confused.

Evan: Yeah, well, I've been worried about you, Amanda. I mean, everybody has.

Amanda: You think I wanted to do this? I wanted to leave my baby?

Evan: No. That's what had me so scared!

Amanda: And angry?

Evan: Yes, I felt some anger. I felt every emotion possible these last few days. But that's ok now... because you are back.

Amanda: I'm back.

Evan: You haven't been home yet, have you?

Amanda: No.

Evan: Why not?

Amanda: Because I had to see you. I had to--

Evan: Wait a second. Before you say anything, I want you to know something. The time we spent together working on that magazine, putting it out, you know, accomplishing what was almost a miracle, celebrating together. We made love together.

Amanda: Evan--

Evan: Let me finish. Amanda, that was the most wonderful experience of my life. Nothing has ever come that close to it. Now, I didn't set out to make it happen, but it did and it was right. And I think you know that, too..

John: Reuben Lawrence?

Reuben: Yes.

John: I have just gone over your test results, and I suggest to you that you stop gabbing and start grabbing your stuff.

Reuben: Yes! You mean I'm sprung?

John: That's right, along with some very strict rules to follow for the next couple of days.

Reuben: Ok, ok.

John: Now, I'm out of here because I happen to have a hot date with my wife.

Reuben: Ooh, good news all around, huh?

John: I'll go and write you some orders.

Reuben: Ok and I'll keep the wheel chair running.

John: Good enough. Ronnie: Strict rules--that means you have to follow them.

John: Hello, Josie.

Josie: Hi John.

John: I'd like to stay and talk, but I'm in kind of hurry.

Josie: Oh, sure.

John: Unless it's important.

Josie: No, no, no. You go ahead.

John: No, well good.

Josie: I didn't really come to see you.

John: Reuben?

Josie: Right.

John: Right over there.

Josie: Great, thanks.

John: See you.

Reuben: Hey, Josie.

Josie: Reuben.

Reuben: How are you doing?

Josie: I've been so worried about you. How are you?

Reuben: Good, good.

Josie: You're ok?

Reuben: Yeah. Is it cold outside? Because they're about to spring me from here.

Josie: No, no it's not too cold outside. Hi, guys.

Ronnie: How you doing?

Reuben: Good 'cause I seemed to have misplaced my fur coat.

Josie: You and I are going to have to spend more time together, do you hear me? Now, you take care of yourself, ok?

Reuben: Ok, hold on, where are you going? You just got here?

Josie: Oh, I have an appointment. I'll call you.

Reuben: All right.

Matthew: Hey, Reuben.

Reuben: Hey, man, how're you doing? This is like old home week.

Matthew: How are you?

Reuben: Good, good. I feel good.

Matthew: That's good. Hey, we're going to have to get together. Has anyone seen Josie on this floor?

Ronnie: Yeah, didn't you see her?

Matthew: No.

Ronnie: Just passed.

Reuben: Yeah, she went barreling out of here just like you did. She said something about an appointment that she had to keep.

Michael: What did you find out?

Arianne: I'm pretty sure the man who attacked Donna was really after me.

Michael: Why would he do that?

Arianne: I was being tailed that day I met you at Tops.

Michael: Did you know that?

Arianne: Yes, that's why I really couldn't talk to you that day.

Michael: You... come here. Talk to me over here. Come on, sit down. Look, you tell me how Donna figures in all this.

Arianne: After you left, she showed up.

Michael: What?

Arianne: We were both wearing the same shade of blue and she followed me into the ladies room.

Michael: Why?

Arianne: Because she wanted to confront me about you.

Michael: Oh, no.

Arianne: Well, I didn't tell her anything, Michael, so she left. By the time I got out of the ladies room, the man who was tailing me was gone.

Michael: He followed the wrong blue dress?

Arianne: Case of mistaken identity.

Michael: I can't believe you didn't tell me she was there!

Arianne: I didn't want to upset you.

Michael: You didn't want to upset me? I left my wife to try to save her life, she's been attacked in her own house, and you don't want to upset me?

Arianne: Michael, I thought you'd be relieved to know that they weren't really after Donna.

Michael: I will be relieved when this whole thing is over.

Arianne: Well, so will I, but it takes time.

Michael: Well, I don't care. I'm going to do this my way from here on out. Now, I've got some information about the Bay City arts gala coming up.

Arianne: What about it?

Michael: Seems they are going to be showing some antique jewelry, some very valuable antique jewelry. Enough, by the way, to get Lucas out from under the clutches of his buyer.

Arianne: Do you think Lucas will steal it?

Michael: Oh, no. I will.

Arianne: Just like that?

Michael: Well, I'm on the Arts Council; arranging its theft shouldn't be too difficult.

Arianne: You've offered Lucas this sort of thing before, Michael.

Michael: Yeah, I know, Arianne, but that was his stuff that you guys took from him in a raid. I think he maybe smelled the set-up.

Arianne: Oh, and this wouldn't be a set-up?

Michael: Well, it would be a set-up but he wouldn't smell it. See, I think--I think he wants the same thing I want. I think he wants to get out. But in order to do that, he has to get out from under, financially. There's no way he's going to pass this one by. He doesn't even have to be in on the robbery.

Arianne: Just you and him.

Michael: Him and me, that's it.

Arianne: It might work.

Michael: It will work. It has to work.

Sharlene: Michael. Hi. So, this must be the lucky lady. Aren't you going to introduce me?

Sam: She's not a child. If this conversation concerns her, she has every right to be here.

Liz: You are wrong, Sam. She is still a child in a great many ways.

Olivia: That's what you'd like to think, aunt Liz, because you like to run people's lives.

Liz: Oh!

Olivia: If you think of everyone as a child that makes it a whole lot easier for you to control, now, doesn't it?

Liz: Now don't you try to analyze me!

Sam: Hold it, hold it, hold it! Please, everybody calm down.

Olivia: I have lived all over the world, aunt Liz.

Liz: And you think that makes you mature.

Olivia: Yes, I have struggled, I have grown.

Liz: Olivia, dear, you don't know what it's like to struggle. You've lived a privileged, sheltered life, whether or not you admit it.

Olivia: I have not.

Liz: And you have very little real experience with men, and what you have had has been unfortunate.

Olivia: How dare you say that?

Liz: She has had all sorts of trouble attaching herself to older men.

Olivia: I can't believe this is happening.

Liz: I love Olivia, and I want to keep her from going back into that pattern.

Sam: Liz, can't you see that she is upset?

Liz: Now you are Rachel's son- in-law. This family--they mean so much to me. I don't want them to be hurt because you are encouraging Olivia.

Sam: Now, just wait a minute!

Liz: I thought you'd changed when you had married Amanda, but--

Olivia: Aunt Liz, shut up.

Liz: What?

Olivia: Just shut up!

Liz: How dare you talk to me like that?

Olivia: Because you're impossible. You don't understand anything.

Liz: I'm trying to save you from a disaster and that's the way you thank me? You tell me to shut up?!

[Door slams] What on earth has happened to that girl?

Sam: What has happened to you?

Liz: Me?

Sam: What right do you have to embarrass her like that? What good is that going to do?

John: Sharlene? 15 minutes late and you don't... what, are we playing hide-and- seek here? Come on Sharlene. Sharlene? Sharlene? Where are you?

Arianne: You know, it's really much too early for me.

Sharlene: Oh, nonsense.

Michael: Yeah, nonsense.

Sharlene: Uh-uh--never too early for a manta ray.

Michael: A what?

Sharlene: It's a manta ray. Bartender's teaching me how to make one of these. Voila. Yep. Sort of like a navy grog but with more of a bite, you know?

Arianne: I'm really not much of a drinker.

Sharlene: Oh, come on, one sip. What could it hurt, huh?

Michael: Yeah.

Sharlene: You could use it. So, supposed to have the umbrellas--don't have them. Too bad. So, Arianne, tell me--go ahead, sip up.

Arianne: Oh.

Michael: Mm. Oh, very nice.

Sharlene: Delicious, huh? So, how did the two of you meet?

Michael: Sharlene, you know, I really don't want to talk about this.

Arianne: It was years ago.

Sharlene: Oh, you were kids.

Michael: Didn't you have an appointment, did I--

Sharlene: And it was love at first sight?

Arianne: Well.

Sharlene: And then what? The two of you met years later and your feelings start up again?

Michael: Yes, something like that, actually.

Arianne: Yes.

Sharlene: I'm sorry. Pardon me for prying, but you know, everyone is so incredibly curious about the woman who stole Michael Hudson's heart.

Michael: Do you want me to get your coat?


Sharlene: Well, Arianne, what is it that you do? For a living, I mean.

Arianne: I'm a consultant.

Sharlene: Really?

Michael: Honey, I know that you are going to miss your appointment if you don't get going right now.

Arianne: Yes, yes, yes. Thank you for reminding me, darling.

Michael: It's all right. Now, you call me later?

Arianne: Oh, the minute I'm free.

Michael: Ok.

Arianne: It was very nice meeting you, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Oh, it was my pleasure.

Arianne: Oh, thank you for the drink.

Sharlene: Sure. Mike, is it me, or is she a little on the cool side?

Michael: I think that she's a little on the private side.

Sharlene: Maybe, but she certainly is not what I imagined you'd be with. I mean, after all, you're already married to a cool brunette.

Michael: Boy, this is some drink, I got to say. [Laughs]

Sharlene: I mean, I would've thought that you would've enjoyed someone more fun-loving this time around.

Amanda: This is not right, Evan. I'm married to someone else. I have a child.

Evan: Amanda--

Amanda: I was unfaithful to my husband. How can that be right?

Evan: I'm not talking about morality here, Amanda. I'm talking about real life.

Amanda: What is that supposed to mean?

Evan: Well, sometimes marriages come apart. People fall out of love. Not because they want to, but because they've changed and they've grown. And then someone comes along who's right for the person that you've become.

Amanda: Even if that's true, what am I supposed to do? Throw away the husband that I've outgrown?

Evan: Well, don't miss this chance. It may never come again.

Amanda: This is so easy for you, Evan.

Evan: Well, maybe it is because I'm so sure. I would not have been ready for you 5 years ago. I was some greedy kid, scrapping and clawing my way to the top, ready to destroy anything that got in my way. I couldn't have loved anyone.

Evan: But that's changed, we've changed. We've grown. What happened the other night... it wasn't unexpected. It wasn't an accident. It wasn't some drunken roll in the hay or a one-night stand. It's something that's been building, and it's been building... and it was right. And I think you know that, Amanda.

Amanda: We could say the whole thing was just a mistake. It'd make it a lot easier.

Evan: Amanda...

Amanda: God help me, I want to.

Tess: You look like an expectant father.

Matthew: What?

Tess: Pacing back and forth, banging on the wall.

Matthew: No, no, no. I'm just a little uptight. Nerves. I've got exams next week, and, you know.

Tess: Right. Are you waiting for Josie?

Matthew: Yeah. She has an appointment with Dr. Ryder.

Tess: Ryder.

Matthew: Yeah. You wouldn't happen to know what kind of doctor he is? I mean, is he--he's an internist, ob-gyn?

Tess: Matthew, are you concerned that you're--

Matthew: No, no, no. No, no. I'm just curious, so...

Tess: Well, no, the name doesn't ring a bell. But then, there are so many doctors affiliated with Bay City General who aren't on staff here. I could check it out for you.

Matthew: No, no. It's ok. You know, I was just--excuse me. Josie, Josie.

Josie: Matthew.

Matthew: Hi.

Josie: What are you doing here?

Matthew: Well, I came to check on Reuben. He already checked out, though.

Josie: Oh.

Matthew: How about you? Why are you here?

[Doorbell rings]

Esther: Who could that be?

[Doorbell rings] Hold your horses, I hear you. Reuben.

Reuben: Hi, mama.

Esther: What in the world are you doing here?

Reuben: I, uh, came by to see you.

Esther: See me?

Reuben: Yeah, yeah. Can I come in?

Esther: No sense standing outside.

Reuben: Thanks.

Esther: I can't remember the last time you came by just to see me. What's come over you?

Reuben: I guess getting hit in my head knocked some common sense in there.

Esther: Getting hit? Are you all right?

Reuben: Yeah, mama, I'm fine. Ronnie didn't tell you what happened?

Esther: No. Maybe she was hoping you'd do that.

Reuben: Look, mama, I need to talk to you, ok?

Esther: Well, I'm listening.

Reuben: Can we sit down? Mama... I just want to say I'm sorry. I've been a lousy son, and I'm sorry.

Esther: Reuben--

Reuben: No, mama, I mean it. But I just want to make it up to you, ok?

Esther: Is this a trick?

Reuben: It's no trick, mama.

Esther: I don't know. I have the feeling you're trying to get something out of me.

Reuben: I don't believe this woman. Man, you always can see right through me, right?

Esther: Then I'm right?

Reuben: As usual, yeah.

Esther: What do you want, Reuben?

Reuben: I don't know how to really ask this. So, I guess I should just kind of blurt it out.

Esther: Blurt it.

Reuben: I want a pot roast dinner. I want some food, mama.

Esther: You what?

Reuben: I want some potatoes and some carrots. Some of them turnip greens you used to make.

Esther: Oh, you don't even like turnips!

Reuben: Well, I do now, mama. I'm changing--I'm trying.

Esther: You want to have dinner here?

Reuben: Yeah, yeah.

Esther: With me?

Reuben: With you, mama.

Esther: Reuben...

Michael: Sharlene, I really don't want to talk about this right now.

Sharlene: Michael, I'm sorry. I have been sticking my nose in where it does not belong. Forgive me.

Michael: All right. It's ok, really, it's all right.

Sharlene: No--I mean, it's just that I really do-Michael, I really do care about you, and I want to see you happy.

Michael: Well, thank you. Yeah, look I'm sorry. All right, I'm sorry. I snapped at you before.

Sharlene: How about we both stop apologizing? Let's have another drink..

Michael: No, no, no, thanks. One manta ray is definitely enough for today.

Sharlene: Then let's get something from the kitchen.

Michael: No, I'm fine. Really, I'm fine.

Sharlene: How come I don't believe that?

Michael: Sharlene, look, you've been a really good friend to me these past few weeks.

[Telephone rings]

Sharlene: Well, I wanted to be.

Michael: Aw, forget it. I--I'm just glad I had you to talk to, that's all.

Sharlene: I'm glad you felt like you could.

Jimmy: Hey, you're not due until tonight.

Sharlene: I came in early to pick up my check.

Jimmy: Oh, there's a phone call for you. Just take it behind the bar.

Sharlene: Ok, thanks.

Jimmy: Ok.

Sharlene: Thanks a lot. Hey, listen, Jimmy, guess what? I tried those manta rays-- dynamite in a glass.

Jimmy: I told you.

Sharlene: Hello?

John: I don't believe this.

Sharlene: John?

John: I've been here for a half an hour. What happened Sharlene? Sharlene, do you hear me?

Sharlene: I don't know what happened. I lost track of time.

John: Lost track?

Sharlene: I'm on my way.

Sam: Olivia. Hey, look at me. It's no big deal.

Olivia: How can you say that?

Sam: Oh, come on. Liz has yelled at me before. She'll yell at me again, I know that.

Olivia: She had no right.

Sam: Yeah, well, rules don't apply to Liz, you know that. You just have to take what she says with a grain of salt.

Olivia: All those things that she said in front of you.

Sam: I don't remember what she said, so--

Olivia: Well, I do. I have never been so humiliated.

Sam: You know she didn't mean to. Liz is intense, to say the least. And she's passionate about the people she cares about.

Olivia: I wish you wouldn't make excuses for her.

Sam: I'm not. You know you love her. She's overprotective, and obviously she has misunderstood our friendship.

Olivia: There's something that I want you to know.

Sam: What?

Olivia: Those older men that she talked about.

Sam: I don't remember what she said.

Olivia: I do. There were two of them and I never did anything.

Sam: I know that.

Olivia: I wish it weren't so obvious.

Sam: Olivia, you are a very sophisticated lady, but you're also innocent. Now before you jump down my throat, that doesn't mean you're a child. It just means that you're...

Olivia: What?

Sam: Incredibly appealing.

Olivia: Oh.

Sam: And that's why I couldn't stay with you at the cabin.

Olivia: There's one thing she was right about.

Sam: What?

Olivia: Whatever it is between you and me, it's not going to work, is it?

Sam: It can't. Listen, Liz was wrong.

Olivia: It's not?

Sam: No. Look, because I'm married doesn't mean I've stopped feeling. It just means that I can't act on those feelings.

Olivia: I'm sorry if I made things difficult for you.

Sam: You haven't. If anything, you've taught me something.

Olivia: What?

Sam: You have taught me that I have to have the same faith in Amanda that I have in myself and you. I have to believe that when she comes back, things are going to be better. Come on. Let me walk you home, ok?

Olivia: Thanks, but I'd like to be alone.

Sam: Ok.

Evan: I'm never going to let you go.

Amanda: This is all I kept thinking about the whole time I was gone.

Evan: I was afraid that when you left, that I'd never get to hold you again and touch you.

Evan: What?

Amanda: I don't deny what happened. How can I? That doesn't mean that I know what to do next.

Evan: Well, I don't expect you to know.

Amanda: Evan, one wonderful night does not wipe away two full years of marriage. It doesn't make my daughter any less important to me.

Evan: I understand.

Amanda: I have to go. I have to go see Alli and Sam.

Evan: Listen, Sam's been going crazy.

Amanda: You didn't tell him?

Evan: No, of course not. But I know he suspects something.

Amanda: Yeah, I'm sure he does.

Evan: Are you going to tell him?

Amanda: I can't lie... not anymore. I have to tell him what happened.

Evan: He'll leave you Amanda. Are you ready for that?

Amanda: I don't know.

Evan: Amanda--

Amanda: I don't know. Look, I have to go.

Evan: Look we have to--a lot to talk about.

Amanda: I have to go, Evan. Maybe I shouldn't have come here first.

Evan: Well, then why did you?

Amanda: Because I had to see you, touch you, be sure that everything's real and not just some wild dream.

Evan: I'm very real, Amanda.

Amanda: I know.

Evan: Will you call me later?

Amanda: When I can.

Josie: You're just in time to take me to lunch.

Matthew: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. You still haven't told me what you're doing at the hospital.

Josie: I came by to drop something off for John.

Matthew: Why didn't you mention it? I would've brought you right by?

Josie: Well, I just--I didn't remember until the last minute.

Matthew: Josie...

Josie: What? Why are you staring at me like that?

Matthew: I want to know.

Josie: What?

Matthew: I want--I want to know that everything's ok.

Josie: Of course everything's ok. Why do you keep asking me that?

Matthew: I feel you're keeping something from me.

Josie: You really are getting paranoid.

Matthew: No, I'm not trying to pry. It's just--I love you so much. I want you to know that. And I want to share everything with you. I want you to share everything with me--everything.

Josie: I know that. I know. Come one, stop being so serious. If you want to share something with me, how about a cheeseburger and an ice-cream soda?

Matthew: What?

Josie: I really feel like pigging out today!

Matthew: You haven't eaten anything but carrot sticks and Melba toast.

Josie: I know, I know, and I can't stand it anymore. I'm famished today for some reason. Can we get some bacon on those burgers, too?

Matthew: Sure, why not.

Josie: Great. And you know what? I think I want a large order of onion rings. I'm craving those today.

Ronnie: Sorry. Hey, Tess. Tess, there you are. Hi.

Ronnie: Get your things, come on.

Tess: What, where?

Ronnie: Excuse me, let me get my things. Come on, hurry.

Tess: Ronnie, I'm working here.

Ronnie: It can wait. Come on, come on, we're going to take a late lunch. And honey, you don't want to miss this.

Tess: Where are we going? What's the deal?

Ronnie: I'm not sure, but it must be big. You've been summoned to my mama's. Come on.

Tess: Ok.

Sharlene: I'm so sorry.

John: Do we have any mayo? Are we out?

Sharlene: John, I lost--I lost track of time.

John: I have to be back at the hospital in 30 minutes.

Sharlene: 30.

John: So, we don't have time for a romantic lunch or anything else for that matter.

Sharlene: Let me do that, let me do that.

John: I can make my own sandwich, thanks.

Sharlene: John, I feel terrible.

John: I don't feel real terrific myself.

Sharlene: John, I made you come all the way out here, I'm sorry.

John: Sharlene, what happened?

Sharlene: I--I went to the Pelican Club to pick up my check, and then I ran--I ran into Michael.

John: Michael was at the Pelican Club in the middle of the day?

Sharlene: So, I--we talked for a few minutes.

John: No, it had to be more than just a few minutes.

Sharlene: Well, I suppose.

John: You suppose?

Sharlene: John, I know it was. It had to be, but that is-- that's all it felt like.

John: I've been here almost an hour.

Sharlene: I know you're angry at me and I don't blame you.

John: I just--I just don't understand.

Sharlene: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

John: It's ok.

Sharlene: No, John, it isn't ok.

John: Yes, it is.

Sharlene: No, there is no excuse.

John: There is an excuse. We both have perfect excuses.

Sharlene: What?

John: You're stressed out and I'm overtired, or I'm stressed out and you're overtired. But whatever, we both have perfect excuses.

Sharlene: You're a wonderful man, you know that? I'm lucky.

John: Uh-huh.

Sharlene: I'm lucky.

John: Listen. I got an idea. Why don't we just postpone this little celebration until tonight? Ok? The flowers won't wilt; I won't either.

Sharlene: That's a great idea. Best one I ever heard.

Esther: Oh, Tess, I'm so glad you could come.

Tess: Well thanks for inviting me, Mrs. Lawrence.

Ronnie: Question is why?

Esther: Why, what?

Ronnie: Why you invited us. What's the occasion?

Esther: Does there have to be an occasion?

Ronnie: When you get that look on your face there does.

[Doorbell rings]

Esther: Oops, I'll get it.

Ronnie: Uh-huh, something's going on. I don't know what, but something..

Esther: Honey, what took you so long?

Jesse: I got here as soon as I could mama.

Esther: Good, 'cause we need you.

Jesse: For what?

Esther: To set the table.

Tess: I'll help you, Jesse.

Jesse: Hi, Tess, how are you doing? All right. And I see everybody else is doing fine.

Ronnie: Yeah, hey.

Jesse: Is something going on that I don't know about?

Ronnie: Hey, you got me.

Esther: Oh, yes. And when you've finished the table, I've got a list of errands. And you need to call Zack-- invite him over.

Ronnie: For what?

Esther: What does it look like? A special family meal.

Ronnie: Special?

Esther: What's everybody standing around for?

Ronnie: No, no mama, wait a minute now. If this is a special meal, I think we got to call Reuben. I mean, he's out of the hospital. He probably won't show up, but I think it'd be a nice gesture.

Reuben: Now why wouldn't I be here, huh? This is my party.

Ronnie: Wait, wait. You're here in an apron?

Reuben: What, and miss this?

Ronnie: I can't believe it.

Tess: You and me both.

Ronnie: What happened, Reuben?

Reuben: It's a long story.

Ronnie: You haven't been the same since your adventure in the warehouse.

Reuben: People change.

Ronnie: Not for no reason they don't. What happened?

Reuben: If I told you, you would not believe me. So, it's not important anyway. What is important is what happens from now on.

Ronnie: Oh, my goodness.

...It's all I'll ever need when I see you smile

I can face the world oh-oh you know I can do anything

when I see you smile I see a ray of light oh-oh I see it shining right through the rain...

Amanda: Sam.

Sam: Amanda.
