Sharlene: This is ridiculous.

John: Shh. Just be quiet and breathe.

[Sharlene sighs]

John: Do not do that.

Sharlene: There's nothing wrong with me.

John: No?

Sharlene: No.

John: You always come home from work and faint?

Sharlene: John, it was the cigarette smoke at the Pelican. It really was. That stuff can make you sick sometimes.

John: Sick enough to pass out?

Sharlene: I came to in a few seconds. I was--and I'm great today. I'm fine.

John: Your vitals seem to be ok.

Sharlene: See, I told you.

John: But I'm not certain that you're all right. Besides, I do not think Al would appreciate it if Sharley did a nosedive in the Pelican.

Sharlene: John, do not call me that. Don't you ever call me that.

Rachel: Remember me?

Jamie: Looks very familiar.

Rachel: Hi, sweetie.

Jamie: Hi.

Rachel: Oh, it is good to see you.

Jamie: It is good to see you, too. How come you did not tell me you were coming?

Rachel: Oh, um, well, because it is a little embarrassing to tell your children that you're homesick.

Jamie: Well, homesickness must agree with you, because you look fabulous.

Rachel: Well, thanks. Oh, boy, so does this place. It looks just wonderful. Where's mom?

Jamie: At the hairdresser right now.

Rachel: Oh.

Jamie: So, tell me--how are things?

Rachel: Oh, it is great. I love working at the Odyssey. I mean, you know, it is a lot of work. It is a disaster area.

Jamie: You really like it that much?

Rachel: Yeah, well, I miss all of you guys. But I like it.

Jamie: Except for the times when you're homesick?

Rachel: Except for the times when I'm homesick. Where are Steven and Alli? I cannot wait to get my hands on those little guys. And Amanda, why did she take off like that?

Jamie: Mom--

Rachel: What?

Jamie: Are you really that happy with what you're doing?

Rachel: I just said I was.

Jamie: Ok. All right, fine.

Rachel: Why?

Jamie: Well, it's just that, you know, I know you've said that you needed to find out about yourself.

Rachel: That is right.

Jamie: But being this out of touch with the family, I know it is hard for you.

Rachel: Yeah, it is.

Jamie: Moving away, was that really just for you? Or was there some other reason you felt you had to do it?

Rachel: Ok, I get it. This is about Mitch, isn't it?

Mitch: You want some coffee?

Felicia: Sure. Sleep ok?

Mitch: Well, for a couch, it is not too bad. You know, I would like to have been with you last night--I miss you.

Felicia: I miss you, too.

Mitch: Then why are you doing this?

Felicia: I'm not doing this. I did not make this happen.

Mitch: You know I love you.

Felicia: I love you, too. God, that is why this is so hard for me. I just need a little time to work it all out.

Mitch: I'm doing whatever it takes to make things better between us.

Felicia: I know. I know. Dinner last night and breakfast this morning.

Mitch: Anything if it will help.

Felicia: I just need a little time. I need some time to trust you again. The problem is trust.

Mitch: The problem is trust, or is it Rachel?

Felicia: There is something I need to clear up.

Mitch: What?

Felicia: You told me yesterday you were going to see her one last time..

Mitch: Yes.

Felicia: And that you were going to give up all responsibility for her..

Mitch: That is right.

Felicia: Are you really sure that you can do that?

Matt: There you are.

Josie: Matthew! What are you--what are you doing here?

Matt: I was about to ask you the same question.

Josie: I need to see John.

Matt: No, you don't.

Josie: Yes, I do.

Matt: You have an appointment with Dr. Ryder.

Josie: How did you--

Matt: Why didn't you tell me you were going to do this? Don't I have a right to know?

John: Why are you so angry?

Sharlene: I do not like that name.

John: Why do you let people at work call you that?

Sharlene: Be--because. It is no big deal.

John: Obviously it is.

Sharlene: No, I'm sorry, ok? It is just that Jason used to call me Sharley.

John: I know.

Sharlene: And it brings back all kinds of bad memories, that's all, ok? So can we just drop this--

John: No, I'm afraid we can't.

Sharlene: John--

John: It is not like you to go nuts over something like that.

Sharlene: I said I was sorry.

John: I'm not looking for an apology, I'm just concerned, that is all.

Sharlene: Since when have you been such a worrier?

John: Since this happened. Since Evan told me what happened yesterday. Since the fainting, the mood swings, you want me to go on?

Sharlene: No.

John: There's something wrong with you, and I think I know what it is.

Sharlene: What?

John: I want you to meet me at the hospital at 3:00 this afternoon. I'm going to run some tests.

Sharlene: No.

John: You can say no all you want. It is useless. I'm your husband and your doctor. You might as well just give up and defer to me. So, relax. Admit defeat. Give me a kiss.

Sharlene: I'm not used to this.

John: Being kissed? We can fix that.

Sharlene: I'm not used to being worried about.

John: I don't worry about you all that much, so just relax.

Frankie: Sharlene, I picked up that herbal--uh, sorry.

John: No, no, it is all right. We needed to be interrupted.

Sharlene: We did?

John: Yes, we did. You were getting carried away. She can't keep her hands off me.

[Laughs]

Sharlene: Isn't he a hoot?

John: Well, I'd better get to the hospital. I have to make some money so that my wife can go and buy some herbal tea and some yogurt muffins and--what are those nasty things underneath the kitchen sink that look like they died?

Frankie: Tofu burgers?

John: Yeah, those.

Frankie: Who invited this guy?

Sharlene: I do not know.

John: You--

Sharlene: Mm-hmm?

John: Be at the hospital at 3:00 sharp. All right? Bye.

Stacey: Cass? You have a minute?

Cass: Yeah, sure. But just a minute, Stace. Not a second longer.

Stacey: What was that?

Cass: What was what?

Stacey: That thing you just hid under the desk.

Cass: I did not hide anything under the desk.

Stacey: Come on, Cass. I know that face. I mean, I saw--

Cass: You are cutting into your time, Stace.

Stacey: Well, you have peaked my interest now.

Cass: Well, let me unpeak it. I'm working on something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. Ok?

Stacey: Frankie.

Cass: Frankie who?

Stacey: Oh, attractive redhead, about so tall.

Cass: She is not that tall.

Stacey: What is the story, Cass?

Cass: It is not what you think, Stacey.

Stacey: Oh, I'm not thinking anything at all.

Cass: Oh, sure, you are. You think romance. You always think romance. Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but this is not about anything romantic. Far from it.

Stacey: But this is about Frankie?

Cass: So what?

Stacey: Well, that is what I just asked you in there.

Cass: You want to know the story, don't you? You really want to know the story?

Stacey: Yeah.

Cass: Ok, well, I will tell you the story. I'm through chasing Frankie.. That is the story.

Stacey: That is it?

Cass: Yeah. I may be a little dense, but I finally came to the realization that she and I are completely incompatible.

Stacey: So, what are you up to?

Cass: Well, nothing. That is it. End of story.

Stacey: You would not lie to your only sister, now, would you?

Cass: Look, just because I'm not any longer emotionally attached to her, it doesn't mean that I want to see her thrown to the wolves.

Stacey: Oh. She is seeing another man, huh?

Cass: Griffen Sanders.

Stacey: The dancer?

Cass: The guy is not on the level, Stace.

Stacey: Are you kidding me?

Cass: He is bad news. I'm certain of it.

Stacey: He is a world-famous dancer! How off the level could he be?

Cass: Behind that artistic facade beats the heart of a real swine, a dangerous one.

Stacey: I assume you have some proof of this.

Cass: I have what I need.

Stacey: Well, then what was that thing that you put under-- does that have to do with...?

Cass: I can't show that to you, Stacey, until I have told Frankie about it. Ok?

Stacey: Well, can you tell me what you think this Sanders guy is up to?

Cass: Didn't you come in here to talk to me about something?

Stacey: My minute is up.

Cass: Wait, wait , wait--wait a second.. is it a case you're working on?

Stacey: No. It is something personal.

Cass: Derek?

Stacey: Jamie.

Cass: What about him?

Stacey: He kissed me.

Cass: That is the problem?

Stacey: The problem is, I did not object.

Josie: How did you find out?

Matt: It does not matter. What matters is that I did not find out from you.

Josie: I knew you would not understand.

Matt: Well, you're right. I do not understand.

Josie: Would you please keep your voice down?

Matt: Does that mean I did not have a right to know?

Josie: Ok, ok.

Matt: Ok, what?

Josie: I should have told you.

Matt: Then why didn't you?

Josie: Because it was my decision to make, not yours.

Matt: I do not believe you mean that.

Josie: Well, why wouldn't I mean it? It is my body, isn't it?

Matt: Your--damn it. What about my rights in this? I was there, too, you know.

Josie: What?

Matt: You do not think this is important to me? You're just going to go off and do this and not even talk to--

Josie: Matthew, I told you, it was my decision to make.

Matt: This is my child, too, Josie.

Josie: You think--

Matt: What?

Josie: You think I'm pregnant?

Matt: Aren't you?

Josie: No. I'm not pregnant. And if I were pregnant, I certainly would not keep it from you.

Matt: You're not pregnant?

Josie: No.

Matt: I feel like a fool.

Josie: You are not a fool. I think you're wonderful. And I love you very much.

Matt: This is embarrassing.

Josie: Why? Because you cared so much?

Matt: No, because I should have realized that you would have told me if...

Josie: So this is why you have been acting so strange.

Matt: I have been going crazy trying to get you to tell me something.

Josie: See, you had nothing to worry about.

Matt: Wait a minute. If you're not pregnant, what are you doing here?

Stacey: We were alone.

Cass: You and Jamie?

Stacey: Yeah. We had been out that night.

Cass: You had?

Stacey: Yeah. He wanted to talk to me about being on the Arts Council, nothing personal.

Cass: Go on.

Stacey: We ran into Derek, and then Derek got angry.

Cass: And Jamie kissed you?

Stacey: No, that was later. It just kind of happened, and...

Cass: Uh-huh?

Stacey: Well, it was just a kiss.

Cass: A kiss is still a kiss.

Stacey: I do not know why he felt like he could do that.

Cass: The next question is--

Stacey: I do not know why I felt like he could do it, too. I mean, I do not know what I'm going to say to him next time I see him.

Cass: What did Jamie have to say?

Stacey: He said that he kissed me to make me think.

Cass: Oh, didactic kissing, I'm going to have to remember that one.

Stacey: Yeah, well, he seems to think that it is a big mistake that Derek and I are together.

Cass: Well, of course he would. He is the guy doing the kissing, right?

Stacey: Are you on his side?

Cass: Derek's?

Stacey: Yeah.

Cass: I have...gotten used to having the lunk around, I guess. I don't know.

Stacey: Well, that is not the biggest endorsement I have ever heard.

Cass: Well, to be perfectly honest with you, never in my wildest imaginings did I think you'd ever end up with someone like Derek.

Stacey: Well, I never did either. But being with him was so wonderful.

Cass: Was?

Stacey: We are fighting a lot now.

Cass: Not a good sign, take it from me.

Stacey: Cass, I do not want to give up on him just because of what you say or what Jamie says or problems we have been having lately.

Cass: No, you shouldn't. Hey, I'm a big believer in the long shot.

Stacey: But?

Cass: Well, I have to tell you, you do not seem totally happy with Derek.

Stacey: Totally happy--thanks. Totally happy, is there such a thing?

Cass: Well, when I see you with Jamie, you're at ease. You seem more yourself.

Stacey: I am at ease when I'm with Jamie. I like him. But there's one big problem.

Cass: What is that?

Stacey: I love Derek.

Cass: So why is that the problem?

Rachel: I cannot believe it. He is running circles around the furniture!

Jamie: Well, Vicky and I have practically worn out the video camera following the little guy around.

Rachel: How're you guys getting along?

Jamie: Much better, thank you.

Rachel: Good.

Jamie: Now, can we talk about you for a second?

Rachel: About Mitch and me?

Jamie: Yeah, I've sort of noticed over the past few months a little something going on.

Rachel: It is one of the reasons I left.

Jamie: But not the only reason.

Rachel: Not the only reason.

Jamie: Well, I'm glad to hear that.

Rachel: There were some things we had to get through.

Jamie: And did you?

Rachel: Yes, as far as I'm concerned it is all resolved.

Jamie: Well, then the only reason you're staying away--

Rachel: Is for me.

Jamie: Good.

Rachel: [Laughs] Ok, enough about me. Now, let's hear about you.

Jamie: Well, there's nothing much to report since I talked to you yesterday.

Rachel: I know, I know. I'm trying to be on my own, but I can at least call, can't I?

Jamie: Well, if you didn't call me, I would call you.

Rachel: Good.

Jamie: Tell me something.

Rachel: This sounds serious.

Jamie: Well, it's just semi-serious.

Rachel: What?

Jamie: Well, ah, do you know why these feelings for Mitch resurfaced all of a sudden, after all these years?

Rachel: It was so terrible losing Mac. I felt really empty, and I guess I reached back into the past for some feelings to fill up the present. Can you understand that?

Jamie: Yeah. Not only do I understand it, I think I'm doing the same thing.

Rachel: How?

Jamie: Well, I was with Stacey the other night.

Rachel: Really?

Jamie: Nothing happened. I kissed her.

Rachel: Is she still with Derek?

Jamie: Yeah. But I think I could change that.

Rachel: Do you want to?

Jamie: Not until I know it is Stacey that I want, not just to fill in the emptiness of my life right now.

Rachel: I know that feeling. I'm sorry, sweetie.

Jamie: I kind of envy you.

Rachel: Why?

Jamie: You're doing things. You're changing your life.

Rachel: Yeah. It is nice, you know. This change has been good for my state of mind. Maybe you need a vacation.

Jamie: Well, I have got Steven to think about.

Rachel: Yes, I know, darling, but you could leave him with his mother--he loves being with her--and with grandma. And maybe once you had a change, you would be an even better father.

Jamie: You know, Russ has written to me over the past few months inviting me to come stay with him in Europe.

Rachel: There's an idea.

Jamie: You know, a little change of scenery might help me think a little clearly about things.

Rachel: And it might be fun.

Jamie: I could use a little bit of that, too.[Laughs]

Rachel: I'm sure you could.

Jamie: Now, you see what you have done?

Rachel: What?

Jamie: You have listened to me for two seconds, and already my life is in much better perspective. How did you get so smart?

Rachel: Oh, I'm not really that smart, but I had the good sense to have very smart children, who I love very much.

[Jamie laughs]

Mitch: Because I have worked out whatever mixed feelings that I've had.. You're the one that I love. You're the one that I'm planning on spending my life with.

Felicia: Does Rachel know that?

Rachel: Yes, Rachel knows that, and she's never thought otherwise. She has known what's happened or what has not happened.

Felicia: Why did you go see her at Park Ridge?

Mitch: Because I was worried about her.

Felicia: Why?

Mitch: Because she does not need to be living in that area. She needs to be in Bay City. Wait a minute. Why are we even talking about that in the first place? We should be talking about the fact that I love you and I want to see that you're happy.

Felicia: I hope you want that. Because I know you can.

Mitch: Where are you going?

Felicia: I have some things to do.

Mitch: It is not what you think it is.

Felicia: Right.

Josie: This is really hard for me to talk about.

Matt: Josie, Josie, you can tell me anything.

Josie: I did not get chosen for the second cover of "Sophisticate."

Matt: So what?

Josie: So? It made me really scared.

Matt: Why?

Josie: I'm not going to lose all of this, Matthew. And that is why I have made this decision.

Josie: What decision? What does that have to do with doctors and hospitals?

Josie: I'm going to have cosmetic surgery.

Matt: On what?

Josie: I'm sure you can guess.

Matt: No, I cannot guess. You're perfect. No plastic surgeon is going to lay a hand on--

Josie: Matthew, it's my nose.

Matt: You have got to be kidding me.

Josie: It does not photograph well.

Matt: Says who?

Josie: Especially from this angle, see?

Matt: No, I do not see. That's a great nose. It is a great face. Do not do it. You're perfect.

Josie: You're just saying that.

Matt: I'm not "saying that." It's a fact.

Josie: Well, I have made up my mind.

Matt: This is insanity.

Josie: See, this is exactly why I did not want to tell anyone.

Matt: Wait a minute, wait a minute. Lucas is behind this whole thing, isn't he?

Josie: No. It is my decision.

Matt: Well, he knows, doesn't he?

Josie: Yes, I told him.

Matt: Jerk probably didn't even try to talk you out of it, did he?

Josie: I'm not going to change my mind, Matthew.

Matt: Just your nose?

Josie: I'm happy with my decision.

Matt: Fine. I'm not happy, I'm not happy with it. I love you just the way you are.

Josie: Matthew, the modeling world is tough. I have to stay on top.

Matt: Josie, I don't think you're--this isn't like changing a dress or putting on new lipstick. This is a permanent change to your body.

Josie: Right. To my body.

Matt: Do not start that.

Josie: Look, Matthew, if you cannot be supportive about this, I really just wish you would leave.

Matt: Well, I think you should give a little time and thought.

John: Hi, Matt, Josie. What are you two doing in the hospital?

Josie: I'm here to see about volunteer work.

Matt: Oh, yeah. I came to help her see, I--keep her company.

John: You're going to have time?

Josie: For what?

John: Volunteer work.

Josie: Sure, why not?

John: Because you told me last night that you did not even have enough time to have breakfast with your mother and me.

Josie: Well, I'm getting my priorities straight.

Matt: That is great, Josie, I admire that.

John: What about that important appointment that you said you could not miss?

Josie: Well, this is what it was. So, here I am.

John: I see, I see. Well, you know, maybe I can help you out here. Why don't I call the director of volunteers? She can probably put you to work right now.

Josie: No, no.

John: What?

Josie: Well, that--that will not be necessary. See, I have got everything under control. In fact, I really should be going.

Matt: Josie, I will be waiting for you right here after your interview..

Josie: Matthew, that is ok.

Matt: I will be here.

Josie: Please do not say anything. I will see you, John.

John: Matthew--is she lying? Matt? I think I have my answer.

Matt: Yeah, I cannot say anything about that, John.

John: Is she ok?

Matt: Yes. It's one of those things where you think you know someone really well and then they go and do something, and you think you do not know them at all.

Frankie: Oh, this will hit the spot. One sip of this, Sharlene, and you will feel so revitalized. The best part is you can use these teas for your eyes, you know, when they're all swollen in the morning. You just pop them on the old eyelids there. What is with you? Ever since I have been here, you have either been staring off into space or looking at pictures. Here.

Sharlene: I'm acting weird, huh?

Frankie: Well, you're always acting a little weird, but this is much weirder than usual.

Sharlene: Frankie, I fainted in John's arms last night.

Frankie: Out of the blue?

Sharlene: I just passed right out.

Frankie: Why?

Sharlene: That is what we do not know.

Frankie: Are you worried?

Sharlene: John is worried.

Frankie: Is that why he's having you meet him at the hospital?

Sharlene: Yeah, that's right. He wants to run some tests on me or something.

Frankie: What could be wrong?

Sharlene: I do not know. I hope it is something physical. I have been acting so strange lately. I have not felt like this in a long, long time.

Frankie: Janice.

Sharlene: Yeah, I cannot stop looking at this picture. There is something about the eyes. Look at the eyes.

Frankie: Sharlene, you're not thinking you're like her, are you?

Sharlene: What do you mean? Crazy? I do not know.

Frankie: Oh, come on.

Sharlene: Well, Frankie, the women in our family have never been too stable. And that is a fact.

Frankie: Oh, I happen to be steady as a rock.

Sharlene: I'm talking about matters with men--love?

Frankie: Oh.

Sharlene: I'm so happy with John. Maybe I feel like I do not deserve that happiness.

Frankie: Sharlene, if you do not, who does?

Sharlene: Come on. Come on, you tell me something, isn't that why you broke off with Cass?

Frankie: No, I broke off with Cass because he's a jerk.

[Sighs] I have already met somebody much better.

Sharlene: Griffen Sanders?

Frankie: Yes.

Sharlene: And how is that going?

Frankie: It would be going much better if I weren't dreaming about Cass all the time.

Sharlene: You see, you're still crazy about that guy.

Frankie: That is not it, Sharlene. I cannot stand the guy. How many times do I have to tell you that? In fact, if I never see the man again it'll be much too soon. Much too soon.

Cass: Oh, good, you're here.

Frankie: Cass, look, Sharlene and I were just about to make some lunch.. We're going to have some tofu burgers.

Sharlene: No, we weren't, because I was on my way out.

Frankie: Not until you have had your lunch, Sharlene. You're not leaving, Sharlene.

Sharlene: ...The hospital. Oh, Cass, it is so good to see you.

Cass: Oh, it's good to see you too, Sharlene.

Sharlene: And Frankie, sweetheart, save me one of those tofu numbers, because I might actually eat it when I get home.

Frankie: They're no good cold! What are you doing here?

Cass: Griffen Sanders.

Frankie: Not again.

Cass: He is dangerous, Frankie.

Frankie: We're not going to go through this again.

Cass: This time is different. This time I have proof.

Felicia: "Lucy heard his foot fall coming closer. She pulled the sheets tight about her throat, covering her... nakedness. The doorknob turned. Her breasts heaved in excitement." Oh, that's good.

[Doorbell rings]

Felicia: Oh, no, no. Sorry, Lucy. Hang in there.

Rachel: Hello, Felicia.

Felicia: I'm afraid you have missed him. He had errands to run.

Rachel: I'm not here to see Mitch. I'm here to see you.

Frankie: You have proof, huh?

Cass: Right here. Check it out.

Frankie: A map of Europe. This is your proof?

Cass: Now, look at the dots.

Frankie: I know, you connect them, they make Griffen's head.

Cass: There are red and blue dots next to various cities all throughout Europe, ok?

Frankie: Milano. Lucas is going to take me there.

Cass: Well, that's swell. Griffen performed there so there is a red dot.

Frankie: Why is there a blue dot?

Cass: That signifies a major art theft. Paris he performs, red dot; another major art theft, blue dot. Madrid he performs, art theft. The same thing happened in London, Amsterdam, Rome.

Frankie: Griffen is ripping off art in between acts of "Swan Lake?" Is that what you're saying?

Cass: Yes, that is what I'm saying.

Frankie: Incredible.

Cass: Every date coincides. I mean, I have researched everything.

Frankie: Do you want to know what I think?

Cass: It is facts, Frankie. Irrefutable facts.

Frankie: I think this is the most pathetic attempt to nail somebody that I have ever seen.

Cass: Oh, come on Frankie. You are too sharp to ignore something like this.

Frankie: All you are using is the most flimsy of circumstantial evidence.

Cass: You just won't see the truth, will you?

Frankie: It is obvious what you're doing. Utterly transparent.

Cass: And what am I doing?

Frankie: You are trying to get between me and Griffen because I would not buy your line.

Cass: We are talking about a dangerous criminal here!

Frankie: Oh, if I were going out with a bank teller, you would tell me he was responsible for the S&I crisis.

Cass: My interest is strictly professional. You're the one who is making it personal.

Frankie: No you don't, Cass. You do not turn this on me.

Cass: Hey, I do not care if I never see you again.

Frankie: Fine.

Cass: But I still have enough residual feeling for you not to want you involved with some sociopath.

Frankie: All you want is for us to get back together again.

Cass: You and me? Are you saying that you and me are going to get back together again?

Frankie: And it will never happen, so don't worry about it.

Cass: Oh, forget--I am not worried about it. Don't worry.

Frankie: Well, neither am I.

Cass: Talking to you is like-- it's like--it's like talking to you!

Frankie: Goodbye, Cass.

Cass: If you want--if you want to go out with a criminal, that is fine with me. So be it.

Frankie: So be it is right.

Cass: I am telling you, Frankie, for someone with a genius IQ, you can really be dumb sometimes.

Jamie: I was just on my way to the hospital.

Stacey: Oh, I know. I called there first.

Jamie: Hilda told me you were down here.

Stacey: I don't want to keep you.

Jamie: No, no--I have some time.

Stacey: Ok, I needed to talk to you about what happened the other night.

Jamie: I go first.

Stacey: Jamie--

Jamie: No, no, no, seriously, I started to call you at least a dozen times, you know, and I'm-- I'm sorry.

Stacey: Hey, I'm not angry.

Jamie: You're not?

Stacey: No. I'm just--I'm confused.

Jamie: Me, too. I am, too. I think I was trying to question your relationship with Derek because a part of me still thinks that you and me--

Stacey: I know--I know. Believe me, I understand. Sometimes I think the same thing.

Jamie: You do?

Stacey: Why do you think I'm so confused?

Jamie: But it would not work.

Stacey: No, I guess it would not. Pr--no, it definitely would not.

Jamie: Even if we both felt the same way, I need to have a clear head and right now I'd--

Stacey: Right, oh, you're getting over a bad marriage. I more than understand.

Jamie: You and I never did have great timing.

Stacey: Think some day we might?

Jamie: Stranger things have happened. Listen, there's something else I need to tell you since you are here. I'm going to be taking a short leave of absence from the hospital.

Stacey: You are?

Jamie: Yeah. I'm going to Europe. I'm going to visit Russ and do some thinking.

Stacey: Oh. I think that would be good for you.

Jamie: Yeah, well, I hope so. And I wanted you to know that.

Stacey: So what about Steven?

Jamie: Well, I will make arrangements with Vicky, of course. And when he's here, he will have the family.

Stacey: It must be pretty important if you're leaving him.

Jamie: Well, I'm not going to be gone more than a few weeks.

Stacey: Hey, what if I stopped by and visited him? Would that be ok?

Jamie: That would be wonderful.

Stacey: Great. So what are you going to do in Europe?

Jamie: Well, I'm going to--you know, I will probably help Russ in his clinic and meet a few European girls and relax.

Stacey: And maybe do a little skiing?

Jamie: Yeah, a little bit of that, too. But mainly I'm just going there to sort my head out.

Stacey: Well, I think you're doing the right thing.

Jamie: I hope you are, too.

Stacey: What do you mean?

Jamie: I wondered--well, if you and Derek really--

Stacey: Belong together.

Jamie: It is just that you seem so tentative sometimes, Stace.

Stacey: Sometimes I am.

Jamie: I know that I need to get away and put things in perspective for myself. Maybe you do, too.

Rachel: May I come in?

Felicia: I did not know you were back in town.

Rachel: Just for the day.

Felicia: What, to see your family and friends?

Rachel: I have had a number of sleepless nights worrying about what I have done to you.

Felicia: Well, I have had a few of those myself.

Rachel: I'm sure you have. And I'm responsible.

Felicia: I cannot deny that, Rachel.

Rachel: I never should have turned to Mitch. It was just so awful losing Mac.

Felicia: You know, you have said all of this before.

Mitch: It is over, Felicia. Mitch and I are nothing but friends.

Felicia: Gee, I wish I could understand why it could not have been like that in the first place.

Rachel: I wish it had never happened. But I guess wishing does not get you anywhere.

Felicia: Rachel? Maybe it does. I do not know, maybe it does.

Rachel: Then I wish with all my heart you understood how much this friendship means to me. And how sorry I am I hurt you.

Felicia: I want you to know that I have done a lot of thinking, too. Sleepless nights can do that for you. Losing Mac, I know what that did to you.

Rachel: I will never be the same. I will never love anybody as much as I loved him.

Felicia: Nobody knows that better than I.

Rachel: I know that.

Felicia: I miss him. I miss him a lot, and the tragedy is I never had a chance to talk to you about it.

Rachel: I miss you.

Felicia: I guess the question is, can we ever trust each other again?

Mitch: Yes, I'm trying to reach the American Association of Antique Dealers. Oh, good. Yeah, I am interested in some information on one of your members, Ken Jordan? It would be in Park Ridge. The store is the Odyssey. Yeah, could you just tell me how long he has been a member? I see. Ok, all right, thank you. Ok, Ken Jordan. You check out. But there is a connection between you and Mac, and I'm not so sure it is a positive one.

Josie: I do not want it too narrow.

Dr. Ryder: Oh, we'll only go as far as you want with that. Here are some other possibilities.

Josie: Wait, w--oh. Oh. That one is perfect.

Dr. Ryder: All right. I will make a printout of that one.

Josie: I can't believe--

Dr. Ryder: Any others?

Josie: No--I cannot believe it. I am picking out this nose as if it was a dress in a catalog.

[Laughs]

Dr. Ryder: I've scheduled you for surgery tomorrow. Is that too soon?

Josie: The sooner the better.

Dr. Ryder: And you will need to be admitted this afternoon.

Josie: Oh, well. I guess I better get going then.

Dr. Ryder: Josie, before you do, I would just like to talk to you. Can you sit for just a minute?

Josie: Ok.

Dr. Ryder: Josie, I would feel irresponsible as a doctor if I did not give you my honest opinion about your decision.

Josie: What do you mean?

Dr. Ryder: You're obviously a very intelligent, mature young woman, and it is your decision ultimately.

Josie: Then what is the problem?

Dr. Ryder: You are beautiful.

Josie: Except for my nose.

Dr. Ryder: No, Josie, you have a good nose. It suits your face. If you were my daughter, I would not let you touch it.

Josie: Well, I am a model, Dr. Ryder. I need to have perfect features.

Dr. Ryder: Perfect. What is perfect? Does being a model mean you have to have a chiseled little upturned nose or a certain color eyes?

Josie: Dr. Ryder, please.

Dr. Ryder: I just want you to think about it some more, Josie. I want you to understand that you do not have to look like everyone else to be beautiful. And you are certainly very beautiful just as you are.

Josie: I appreciate all the compliments, Dr. Ryder, but I have made up my mind.

Dr. Ryder: Fine. I understand.

Josie: Good. Now, if I could have the computer printout, I want to show my boss.

Dr. Ryder: Of course.

Josie: Great.

Dr. Ryder: I hope your boss is not pressuring you into this.

Josie: No, no. This is something I really want. And I cannot wait to get it.

Dr. Ryder: Hmm.

[Knock on door]

Frankie: Griffen! Hi. What are you doing out here in the boonies?

Griffen: I love the countryside, and the smell of farms.

Frankie: Oh, well, you'd love the barn.

Griffen: [Laughs] So as it turns out, I was out driving and reviving myself, and I just took a chance that you would be here at your aunt's, and I was right.

Frankie: Well, I'm glad. Come on in.

Griffen: It is a beautiful day outside, crystal clear.

Frankie: Would you like some tea or something, or do you have to get back for rehearsal?

Griffen: No, I always have time for you.

Frankie: Oh. Well, would tea be ok? I have this incredible herbal.

Griffen: Oh, that sounds lovely.

Frankie: Ok, I will be right back.

Frankie: Would you like something in it? Milk?

Griffen: No. Tea should never be muddied with milk or sugar.

Frankie: Oh, finally, someone who understands about tea. You know, there are Indian yogis who feel that certain teas have mystical qualities.

Griffen: Oh, well, I have no doubt about that. Here we go. All right.

Frankie: How is it?

Griffen: You are a woman of many talents, Frankie Frame.

Frankie: Well, thank you.

Griffen: But I hope that does not include an extensive social calendar..

Frankie: I beg your pardon.

Griffen: Ms. Frame, I would be honored if you would attend the gala with me.

Frankie: Me? Aren't you in it? Aren't you performing or something?

Griffen: Yes, but after the performance there is going to be an incredible party.

Frankie: Oh. Fine. I would love to. It sounds terrific. It sounds like it'll be fun.

Griffen: It will be a night to be remembered. Anyway, I must go.

Frankie: Oh, so soon?

Griffen: Well, you were right. I am swamped, and I must get back. I will call you about the gala.

Frankie: Fine.

Griffen: Good.

Frankie: Great.

Griffen: Ciao, Frankie.

Frankie: Yeah, right. Ciao.

Rachel: It was not intentional.

Felicia: That doesn't really matter, though, does it?

Rachel: No, but it never got out of control.

Felicia: Rachel, my marriage almost ended.

Rachel: It did not, though. Because none of us would have let that happen.

Felicia: Boy, I really want to believe that. I think I need to believe that.

Rachel: Look, we're sitting here on a couch talking about it. At least that means there is some amount of trust left.

Felicia: I was so hurt by this. I just--I cannot make that stop just because I want to.

Rachel: I'm not asking you to. I guess all I'm saying is, can we just get on, move on?

Mitch: Hi. Rachel?

Rachel: Hi, Mitch.

Felicia: Rachel was in town for the day, so she stopped by.

Rachel: I really did not mean to stay this long.

Felicia: You do not have to leave yet. Would you like to stay for lunch?

Rachel: No, it's ok. I really should get going.

Mitch: Well, I'm--I'm glad you stopped by.

Rachel: So am I.

Felicia: So am I.

Rachel: Well, I guess I will see you both at the gala.

Felicia: Rachel, would you like to go to the gala with us?

Rachel: That was a very nice offer. I cannot.

Felicia: Maybe we could have dinner before and talk.

Rachel: It is all right. I have got plans. Good-bye.

Josie: Hi. Sorry I took so long.

Matt: No problem.

Josie: You're not going to believe what I'm going to look like. Just wait 'til you see this computer printout.

Matt: No.

Josie: Ah, but it's fascinating the way--

Matt: Josie, put the printout back. I'm not looking at it.

Josie: Why are you being so negative about this?

Matt: Because I love you the way you are.

Josie: Well, that is very sweet, Matthew, but I really wish you would just lighten up.

Matt: Lighten up?

Josie: It's no big deal.

Matt: Surgery is no big deal.

Josie: It is just my nose.

Matt: Just your nose? I guess I should be grateful you're not getting a full facelift, or having your body pumped full of silicone.

Josie: I would never do that.

Matt: Oh, just a little nose job, like trimming your hair. Small potatoes, right?

Josie: At least I'm not pregnant.

Matt: Oh, that is a brilliant argument. Great point, Josie. Is that supposed to make me feel better? Because it doesn't.

Josie: I suppose you'd just love the idea, wouldn't you?

Matt: What?

Josie: You hate my career. You'd love for me just to have to go to Lucas and tell him I could not model anymore because I was pregnant.
