[Laughter]

Stacey: Stop it. I should never have let you keep me out that late.

Derek: Wait a minute. Who is the one who said, "let's stay for the second set"?

Stacey: Yeah, well, that is because the band was so good, and the fiddle--and I never danced to the fiddle before.

Derek: And who is the one who said--who is the one who said, "I'm starving, I've got to have some breakfast"? Whoa.

Stacey: That is because you made me dance all night.

Derek: Uh-huh.

Stacey: Teaching me a little, you know--

Derek: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Stacey: Whatever that was.

Derek: I bet you would not have had a chance to work up such an appetite at the arts gala, huh?

Stacey: No, and I probably wouldn't have had as good a time. I wish this did not have to end.

Derek: Who says it has to end? Hey, why don't we go back to my place, grab some blankets, smooch--

Stacey: No, no, no, no.

Derek: Watch the sunrise.

Stacey: No.

Derek: Go up on the roof, you know.

Stacey: I have got my cases, and I have got to go down to the court house and file some papers.

Derek: Why don't you take the morning off?

Cass: I am glad you're here.

Stacey: Because--hi, Cass, hi.

Cass: I need your help, both of you. Frankie has disappeared.

Derek: What happened to her?

Cass: She went to the gala with Griffen. Griffen was shot.

Derek: Shot?

Stacey: Griffen was shot?

Cass: Yeah, and Frankie is missing.

Stacey: Oh, my God.

Cass: If he did anything to hurt her... I have to find her.

Frankie: Good. There's no changes. So they will find me. They have to find me. [Screams] Oh, God. [Panting] Oh, that is it. That is it. I am out of here.

Iris: Lucas, you still have not told me what really happened.

Lucas: Iris, I'm talked out. Besides I need to be alone. You should be at home and get some sleep, ok.

Iris: Stop trying to get rid of me. Now tell me the truth.

Lucas: You know the truth. I saw Griffen pointing a gun at Michael. It was instinctive. He was about to fire, so I shot him.

Iris: Well, what were you doing with a gun? You told me you hate guns.

[Knock on door]

Felicia: Luke, it's Felicia. Please, I need to talk to you.

Donna: It should be safe for you to leave now. He could not have stayed out there all night.

Jake: Sounded like he really wanted to talk to you.

Donna: Well, that is too bad. He had a lot of chances.

Jake: I know.

Donna: Can you imagine what it would have been like if I had not have asked him for the keys back and he had just walked in here the way--

Jake: We did not do anything wrong.

Donna: I don't think Michael would have seen it that way.

Jake: We made love.

Donna: I know what we did.

Jake: And it was wonderful. I am not sorry, and I don't want you to be.

Donna: I don't know what I am.

Jake: I do.

Donna: Jake? Jake.

Jake: Ok, I am leaving.

Donna: I think that would be a good idea.

[Lock turns]

Michael: Donna?

Donna: Michael?

Michael: Thank God you are all right. House, hi, house! It is over. It is over, Donna. It is over, it is over, it is over. I can tell you everything, and everything is going to be exactly the way it is supposed to be from now on.

Donna: What do you think you are doing?

Michael: I know it sounds crazy.

Donna: This is crazy.

Michael: Well, come on, I knocked on your door last night and there was no answer, so I went back to my office, and I got my keys. I kept an extra set in case of an emergency.

Donna: How resourceful of you.

Michael: Well, where--where were you?

Donna: I was in bed, Michael, and I resent you barging in here like this.

Michael: Oh, come on, this could not wait.

Donna: It could not wait? Well, it certainly was difficult for you to give me the time of day yesterday when I tried to talk to you.

Michael: Oh, I know, but that was yesterday, this is today. Everything has changed.

Donna: Everything has changed?

Michael: Yes.

Donna: How? Forget it. I do not want to hear about it. I want you to leave.

Michael: Well, just let me explain. I got to tell you why I've made our lives so--

Donna: Michael, I don't want to hear it.

Michael: ...Miserable over the last couple of months, why I had to leave you, ok.

Donna: You can explain all that.

Michael: Yes--yes--yes. I have so much to tell you, and now I finally can.

Donna: Well, that is very nice for you, Michael. I do not want to hear it.

Michael: Donna, you have got to let me explain.

Donna: No, I don't. I want you to leave.

Michael: But Donna, I-- uh, is this Jake's? Is that what this is all about, Donna? Jake, you are shacking up with Jake, huh?

Jake: Hello, Michael.

Michael: You want to tell me just what the hell you are doing in my house?

Felicia: Thank you.

Lucas: Mitch, I did not expect to see you here.

Mitch: You don't think that I would let Felicia come down here by herself, do you?

Felicia: Come on, you guys. Let's not start.

Lucas: Yes, it has been a long night for everybody.

Mitch: Yes, and I guess we can thank you for that, can't we?

Lucas: You know, I spent the last 8 hours being grilled by the cops. Are you going to start, too?

Mitch: Sure, why not if I have to.

Iris: I think it is a little bit late for that.

Felicia: Yes, it is. I need some answers, Luke.

Lucas: What do you need to know, Fanny?

Felicia: Everything. Why was Griffen trying to kill Michael?

Lucas: It seems that Michael has been a government agent for all of these years.

Iris: What?

Lucas: Yes, under cover. No one knew and Griffen Sanders was one of the people he was investigating.

Iris: Griffen Sanders was a criminal?

Lucas: He was a player, big time. I guess Michael found out about it.

Felicia: So that is why he decided to kill Michael?

Lucas: Or was ordered to.

Iris: Ordered to?

Lucas: Michael told the police he thinks it was an assigned hit.

Iris: Oh, this is horrific.

Lucas: I saw--I saw Griffen pointing the gun at Michael.

Mitch: Wait a minute. How is it that you just happened to see that?

Lucas: I was passing his box.

Mitch: You were passing his box? Let me get this right. You get up out of the ballet, you leave your seat, you go to another part of the theater, and we are supposed to believe that that is just some sort of coincidence?

Lucas: You believe anything you want.

Iris: Lucas, you knew that something was going to happen, didn't you?

Felicia: Iris, I would like to talk to Lucas alone.

Cass: So because of Michael's testimony, the cops let Lucas go, at least for now. That's it. That is all I know.

Derek: And you think Lucas was telling the truth?

Cass: Oh, who knows? Michael seemed to think so.

Stacey: They did not get any statement from Griffen?

Cass: The last I heard he had not even regained consciousness. He could be dead by now.

Stacey: Oh, my God. How awful.

Cass: Oh, look. Griffen was obviously a professional and I don't mean dancer. He was a very dangerous man.

Stacey: All right, so you can say you were right now. I mean, he certainly was not legit.

Cass: Yeah, well, being right is not much consolation when I still cannot find Frankie.

Derek: You said that she was at the gala with him, right?

Cass: Yeah, that was the last time I saw her. In the lobby, they were arm in arm, chatting with everyone. She even had a few choice words for me.

Stacey: What is it?

Cass: I remember feeling that, that she was in trouble, something was wrong. She was behaving strangely. She was rattling on a little too fast even for Frankie.

Frankie: You remember the night we almost made love?

Cass: Frankie, for crying out loud.

Frankie: Do you remember that that woman interrupted us, and you handled the situation all wrong? Griffen would have known how to handle a situation like that.

Cass: That woman. I thought she was talking about Cecile. All that time she meant Catherine March.

Stacey: What are you talking about?

Cass: We saw her in the water that night.

Stacey: Cass?

Cass: Frankie, she was trying to tell me something. Griffen had her by the arm.

Derek: She could not talk in front of him.

Cass: No, of course not because she was trying to tell me that Griffen was the one who murdered Catherine March.

Stacey: What? Are you sure?

Cass: She was--yes, I am sure. She was in trouble. She was asking me for help, and I did not give it to her. So now the question is, where did Griffen take her? What did he do to her?

Frankie: [Coughs] Ptth. [Coughs] [Coughs] Ok. [Coughs] This isn't gonna work. [Grunts] Oh. [Crying] Oh. Oh, somebody help me. [Sobs] Please!

Donna: Your house, Michael? Your house?

Michael: The point is--what is he--what are you doing here?

Donna: Since the attack, Jake has been kind enough to come over to this apartment and check on me. And I heard noises last night.

Michael: Well, that was me.

Donna: Yes, I know that now. But Jake was upstairs. He was checking to see that the terrace doors were locked.

Jake: It was no problem.

Michael: Oh, oh, I see. You just happened to be here.

Donna: No, I called him, and he came right over.

Michael: How nice. How nice. If you will excuse us now, though, Jake, I would like to be alone with my wife if you do not mind.

Jake: Are you kicking me out of your house?

Michael: No, no, no, no, no. I am asking you to leave, nicely.

Jake: I think that is up to Donna.

Donna: I think I'm going to have to hear what Michael has to say whether I want to or not.

Jake: Ok. I will be at the loft if you need me.

Donna: I will walk you out.

Jake: Ok.

Jake: Hey, you going to be ok?

Donna: Fine.

Jake: See you later.

Donna: Now what is so earth shattering that you have to talk to me right now?

Michael: Well, I am not having an affair, Donna. There is no other woman.

Cass: He must have had a gun on her the whole time. That is why they were practically glued together. Damn, how could I have been so dense?

Derek: They left together?

Cass: Yes, but where did they go? Griffen performed in the first part of the program. He could not have left the theater.

Stacey: Ok, Cass, how much time elapsed between when you saw them in the lobby and when Griffen was on stage?

Cass: Not much. We walked in. We sat down. That was it.

Derek: Could she still be in the building?

Cass: She has to be in the building. Wait a second. Griffen, it must have been Griffen who locked Frankie and me ie in the basement of Caroline's gallery a while ago. Now, that would be his style. I don't even want to think about the alternative.

Stacey: Don't, don't. Listen, we're going to find her.

Cass: Ok, let me change, and then we'll go search the place, all right?

Derek: Yeah.

Reuben: Wow, I thought I was going to get a jump on you guys this morning.

Cass: Good, I am glad you showed up early. You can come with us to the theater.

Reuben: Now?

Stacey: Frankie is missing. She disappeared last night at the gala, and we think she might still be there.

Cass: Locked in the building.

Reuben: In the theater?

Derek: Yeah, yeah.

Reuben: Then we got to get over there. They are going to dynamite the whole place at 8:00 this morning.

Stacey: 8:00?

Reuben: Come on, let's go.

Stacey: It's 7:00 now.

Cass: Let's get out of here.

Stacey: Here's your coat.

Reuben: Get your stuff. Come on.

Felicia: Please, Mitch. Do this for me, all right?

Mitch: Ok, all right.

Felicia: Go upstairs, order some breakfast. I won't be long, I promise.

Mitch: I don't want to, but I will do it.

Felicia: Ok.

Lucas: Iris, will you go with Mitch, please?

Iris: Now that I know where I stand with you, I think I would prefer to go home.

Lucas: Please don't. Please, please, stay and we will talk about this after they leave. I cannot say everything in front of them.

Iris: All right. You coming, Mitch?

Mitch: I will be back for you.

Felicia: Now I know why you wanted me to leave the gala.

Lucas: I am not sure you do.

Felicia: You knew that Griffen Sanders was going to try and kill Michael.

Lucas: No, I did not.

Felicia: Then what is your connection with all of this? Why were you in Michael's box?

Lucas: Fanny, the truth is that Griffen was not supposed to kill Michael.

Felicia: How do you know that?

Lucas: Because I was. I was supposed to kill Michael Hudson.

Michael: Donna, please. Come on, just listen to me, all right? Look, after--I--after you were attacked in the parking lot at Tops, I had to do it. I did not have a choice. I did it to protect you. I had to leave you.

Donna: You left me to protect me?

Michael: Yes. I was afraid they were going to try to get back at me through you and Mikey or through Vicky and Steven. I even had Marley watched.

Donna: They, they. Who are they, Michael? You have not explained anything to me.

Michael: Well, if you would just stop and listen to me.

Donna: I am listening.

Michael: Fine. Would you sit? "They" are an international drug cartel that I have been investigating. I got something to tell you that I have never told you before. I could not. I have never told anyone before.

Donna: And now you are going to?

Michael: Yeah. I have been working as an undercover agent for the government.

Donna: You are a spy?

Michael: I was. I got started working in Intelligence in Vietnam, and after Vietnam I worked in Europe and South America. My cover was international finance. I seem to have a flair for it.

Donna: For spying or finance?

Michael: Well, for both. But I left it all behind me before I came back to Bay City. Please, you got to believe me. I thought that was all in my past, forever.

Donna: But it was not?

Michael: Well, I thought it was. I mean, I tried. I came back to Bay City. I found you. We got married. We had our life together. I thought it was all in my past until Lucas came to town.

Donna: Why?

Michael: The government suspected that Lucas was a major link in an international drug and art smuggling operation.

Donna: Lucas? Iris' Lucas?

Michael: Yes. That is why I did not want you to have anything to do with him at all. I had investigated Lucas in Europe years ago. I remembered him. He remembered me.

Donna: Did he know what you were doing? I mean spying on him?

Michael: Well, he suspected. I mean, that is why you were in danger. The government wanted to nail Lucas, and I wanted to nail Lucas to protect you. Arianne was the one who approached me about it.

Donna: Arianne, the woman that you have been involved with?

Michael: Right, right.

Donna: Is an agent?

Michael: Yes, well, she was. We found out last night that she has been working both sides.

Donna: Both sides of what?

Michael: It does not really matter. She is in custody now.

Donna: Your girlfriend is in jail?

Michael: Yes. She is not my girlfriend. But, yes, she is in jail. Donna, look, I never wanted to do this to you, ok. I really--I just did it to protect you.

Donna: So you lied to me?

Michael: Yes. Well, I had to pretend to be having an affair. I mean, I wanted them to believe I had left you so you would be out of danger from them.

Donna: And they believed your act?

Michael: Well, I could never really be sure, totally.

Donna: Because you certainly convinced me.

Michael: Honey, I am so sorry. Really I am. There was just no other way.

Donna: And now everything has changed? The operation is over. We do not have to have any secrets at all between us. And that is why you kept trying to get me to delay the divorce?

Michael: Yes, exactly. I am so sorry I hurt you.

Donna: Are you?

Michael: Yeah. All I want is to come home. I want to be with you. I want to make it up to you. And I just hope so much that you understand.

Donna: All I understand, Michael, is that I am married to a complete stranger.

Michael: But--

Construction worker: The interior charges are set to go off at 8:00.

Second worker: Already set?

Construction worker: And the blast for the exterior structural supports will follow in two-minute intervals. The timing here is crucial, people.

Second worker: Right, otherwise the building will not fall in on itself.

Construction worker: That is right. Now, make sure the others are briefed.

Construction worker: Officer?

Courtney: Yeah?

Construction worker: Did your men get what they needed?

Courtney: Yeah, forensics just completed a search of the building. They took plenty of pictures.

Construction worker: And did they have enough time?

Courtney: I think so. Although I would feel better if you could hold off on this demolition for at least a day or two. What do you say?

Construction worker: It might be two days to you, but it is thousands of dollars to the mayor. I got to pull this project off on schedule.

Courtney: I know. I have already talked to his honor. I just hope this case does not take any unusual turns.

Stacey: Courtney? Hey, you got to help us.

Cass: Frankie is in there somewhere.

Courtney: What?

Cass: She disappeared last night, and that was the last place that she was seen. She was with Griffen.

Courtney: She is not in there.

Cass: How do you know that?

Courtney: Because my men have already gone through the place collecting evidence. The theater is empty.

Derek: Your men might have missed it, Courtney.

Reuben: Come on, Courtney. Let us take a look.

Cass: He could have locked her in there somewhere.

Courtney: Why do you think she is in there?

Cass: She was on to him and Griffen knew it. Who knows what he might have done to her?

Stacey: Courtney, you have to make them stop. Make them hold off on the explosion.

Cass: At least until we get a chance to look for ourselves.

Construction worker: Look, we have got a team in there. They're making a complete search of the building right now. If there is a woman in there, they will find her.

Frankie: [Grunting] Come on, girl. Come on, girl, you can do it. [Grunting]

Construction worker: You find anything?

Second worker: No. No sign of anything.

Construction worker: Hey, there is nothing but a couple of dressing rooms down that way, man. Forget it.

Second worker: There's nobody anywhere.

Construction worker: Hey, anybody in there? Let's give the foreman the all clear.

Second worker: It should be something watching this baby blow.

Felicia: You were supposed to kill Michael; what does that mean?

Lucas: I was being blackmailed.

Felicia: This is murder, Luke. How did you get involved with murder?

Lucas: Fanny, it started a long time ago. When I lost you and the baby, I was broke and I was bitter. And somebody came to me with a job offer.

Felicia: Illegal?

Lucas: Yes.

Felicia: Why? Why?

Lucas: Because it paid well, very well. And at that time, I just never wanted to be poor again.

Felicia: Oh, so that is your excuse, you did not want to be poor again.

Lucas: Yeah. The money was easy, real easy as long as you did not ask too many questions or value your life.

Felicia: I do not believe you're saying this to me.

Lucas: Well, it was a lot easier getting in than it was getting out.

Felicia: What exactly did you do for these people?

Lucas: I think the less you know about that the better. The important part is that I was trying to get away from them for good.

Felicia: Oh, and that was hard I bet?

Lucas: Yes, it was hard because I knew--I knew too much. They wanted to get something on me so I would not talk.

Felicia: So they told you to kill Michael.

Lucas: That is right. He was on to their operation. Killing Michael was my price for freedom.

Felicia: My God, Luke.

Lucas: Fanny, it was the--it was going to be my last assignment.

Felicia: This is a man's life we're talking about here. This is a good man. A man with children, a friend of mine.

Lucas: I know.

Felicia: How can you talk about it in such a cold way? I do not understand you.

Lucas: Of course, you don't understand. Somebody like you could not understand this.

Felicia: I defended you in this town when everybody said I was insane. But you know why, I believed in you because I knew who you were. I believed you when you said that you loved our daughter.

Lucas: That was real, Fanny.

Felicia: This is crazy, Luke! Don't you know that?!

Lucas: Don't you understand? Look, I tried to turn down the assignment, but they said to me that if I--if I did not do the hit, I would never find our daughter. Do you understand now?

Felicia: Oh, my God. Are you saying to me--are you saying to me that these people have our daughter?

Lucas: I do not know. I do not know. I could not take that chance, could I? They could be bluffing, but I don't know.

Felicia: You mean she could be hurt or worse?

Lucas: Michael's-Michael's group blew those people out of the water. The last thing on their mind should be our daughter.

Felicia: So they could be holding her someplace?

Lucas: Yeah, but they are looking for her, and if anybody--anybody can find her, it is going to be Michael's people. They will protect her. Don't you see what I was up against? Don't you see?

Felicia: That is why you went to Michael's box. Because you were protecting our daughter?

Lucas: Yes. When I got there, I could not kill Michael Hudson.

Felicia: Tell me what happened, Luke.

Lucas: I saw Griffen. He was pointing a gun at Michael. Then I realized that he was my backup. He was there to finish the job if I failed and maybe to finish me off, too, as well.

Felicia: So you fired?

Lucas: Yes. It was either he or Michael.

Felicia: And you chose Griffen?

Lucas: Yes. But I want you to know something. I am not a murderer.

Felicia: At least you saved Michael's life.

Lucas: Yeah. Let's hope that the cops and Michael see it that way.

Felicia: You could still go to prison, couldn't you?

Lucas: Fanny, I don't care about that. I just care about what you think. I don't want you to hate me.

Michael: Donna, please. I am not a stranger. I never ever stopped loving you.

Donna: No. You just never trusted me.

Michael: I had no choice. You were safer not knowing the truth.

Donna: This organization was an enormous part of your life, and I never knew anything about it.

Michael: That is true, but it is over now.

Donna: Why? Because you say it is over? Just like you said our marriage was over and now it's on just because you say so. You say that none of it is true. I will tell you what is true, Michael. What I went through, that was real!

Michael: Look, I am sorry. I am so sorry it was so rough on you. How do you think I felt? I felt just awful I could not be here with you.

Donna: Why? Were you in agony not knowing why our marriage had ended? Did you cry yourself to sleep every night imagining me making love to somebody else? Did I humiliate you in front of our friends and family?

Michael: It had to look real.

Donna: Well, it did look real. And I will tell you what else is real. This whole marriage is a lie.

Michael: No, that is not true. Please don't say that. This marriage is not a lie. I have never ever stopped loving you, Donna. I have been true to our marriage vows.

Donna: Michael, Michael! I am sorry your little affair did not work out, but at least have the decency to admit it instead of spinning this spy yarn.

Michael: But it is the truth.

Donna: Oh now this is the truth! This is the truth!

Michael: Don't shut me out.

Donna: If I am shutting you out it's because I learned it from an expert. Now if you will excuse me, I have to get dressed.

Michael: Please, we can begin again. We can start over.

Donna: I have, Michael. Without you.

Michael: With Jake?

Donna: Get out of here, Michael. I have to get dressed.

Michael: Please. Please. Not now. Can't it wait? This is import--

Donna: No, it cannot wait. My life has changed since you left, Michael. You cannot waltz back in here and pretend that everything is just the same as it was.

Michael: That is all I have wanted. That is all I have thought about.

Donna: Well, sometimes you cannot have what you want, Michael.

Michael: Is that it? Is that it?

Donna: That is it.

Michael: I am not gonna go.

Donna: Fine, stay. I will go. I have to go to work soon anyhow.

Cass: It looks like we're gonna have to come up with an alternate plan.

Reuben: Like break in?

Derek: It might be the only way, Reuben.

Stacey: Why don't I try to get an injunction? We still have an hour.

Construction worker: Ok, you people can relax now. My men just finished their inspection. The building is empty.

Cass: They don't have any stake in this. I want to see for myself.

Construction worker: Hold it. Nobody goes in there except my men. We have got live charges set up in there.

Cass: If you just give me 15 minutes.

Construction worker: I cannot do that. Now everybody has to clear this area in less than half an hour. I'm sorry.

Cass: Ok. Ok. I see your point.

Construction worker: Good. Now if you will excuse me I've got a job to do.

Cass: Sure thing.

Stacey: So, what, are you giving up?

Cass: No way. But that approach was obviously futile. We're gonna have to sneak in. In the meantime, Stace, why don't you work on that injunction?

Stacey: I will. Don't worry. I will get somebody to listen to me. Good-bye, good luck, be careful.

Derek: Love you.

Stacey: Bye.

Derek: Ok. So, what is the plan?

Cass: We have got to go in.

Derek: In there? This way? We could do it, but it would be kind of obvious, wouldn't it?

Reuben: Hold up. I can give some kind of distraction for those watchdogs.

Cass: There is a great idea. Then we can slip in while you are creating a diversion.

Reuben: No problem.

Cass: Make it convincing, all right?

Reuben: All right.

Cass: Ok. Listen, guys, I'm going to go to the court with Stacey and work on that injunction. We will be back as soon as we can. Excuse me.

Derek: Hey, this kid is stealing your stuff. Hey!

Felicia: I don't know. I honestly don't know how I feel.

Lucas: Fanny, please.

Felicia: You know, it is funny. I thought maybe you were involved in something, something unethical, but I had no idea it was this.

Lucas: Fanny, I did not want you to know. You're the only person I ever loved. You're the only thing that ever mattered to me.

Felicia: It is too bad, isn't it? That you couldn't trust me. It is too bad that I did not matter enough to tell me the truth.

Lucas: Fanny, how could I involve you in this?

Felicia: I am involved. And so is our daughter.

Mitch: Well, he is dead all right, Lucas. Now it is murder. It's made quite a story. Seems as though Griffen had a second job, dealing in drugs, stolen art. He was not working alone, was he, Lucas?

Felicia: I am glad you are here.

Iris: Well, have you finished talking?

Felicia: Yes. I would like to go home.

Mitch: Are you all right?

Felicia: I am just very tired.

Mitch: You are in this deep. I want you to stay away from Fanny. I hope that is clear. Did he explain everything to you?

Felicia: He tried to.

Mitch: You know he is lying to you.

Felicia: No, not this time.

Mitch: What do you mean not this time? Can't you except that the man is a criminal? Can't you understand? Look, I want you to stay away from him, Felicia.

Lucas: You read this?

Iris: Yes, I read it. In fact, I learned more from the paper than I did from you.

Lucas: Iris.

Iris: Why is it--why is it that you share all the most important things in your life with her?

Lucas: It is not that way.

Iris: Isn't it? You would talk to Felicia, you would not talk to me.

Lucas: It was personal. It was about our child.

Iris: Isn't it always? That is not the point. Do you know that in all the times we have been together, you have never once told me that you love me.

Lucas: I know.

Iris: Well, I am glad you noticed. I am glad I was not the only one.

Lucas: I suppose it is my way of protecting you.

Iris: From what?

Lucas: From me. You're better off without me.

Iris: Why? Don't you know I care about you?

Lucas: You say you do.

Iris: I am here, aren't I?

Lucas: Iris, I don't understand why.

Iris: That is just because in your eyes you're still this little kid from Gold Street whereas you're a brilliant man who has made a life for himself, who has made me--well, helped me realize my dreams.

Lucas: Launching a magazine is that important to you?

Iris: No, Lucas, that is not what it's about. We are alike, you and I. We are hungry. We go out for what we want. Ok, we are outsiders, and we're always going to have people gunning for us, but at least we understand that about each other.

Lucas: Maybe. I still think you should get away from me.

Iris: Do you?

Lucas: Yes.

Iris: Well, I don't. But I am going to let you rest tonight before the police talk to you again.

Lucas: I thought you wanted to talk.

Iris: We will talk. But I know you had very good reasons for what you did tonight. And we will get through this together.

Iris: Good night.

Derek: I am glad we found these lights. I was almost out of matches.

Cass: There's not much stuff left down here.

Derek: You sure we have not checked this area before?

Cass: No. It does all look pretty much the same, doesn't it? Let's go over it anyway.

Derek: Ok.

Derek: I feel like I am going through a maze.

Cass: Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Derek: You want to check the backstage area again?

Cass: Griffen would not have left her any place obvious like that, no matter what shape she was in.

Derek: You mean that you think she is already--

Cass: I don't know. He has done it before. I keep seeing Catherine March's body floating by the docks.

Derek: Cass, Frankie is pretty feisty. She would be one tough lady to kill.

Cass: Feisty is not much good up against a professional killer. What time is it anyway?

Derek: 10 till 8.

Cass: Great. Unless Stacey got to a judge, we're almost out of time.

Derek: What do you want to do?

Cass: Let's go back upstairs. Wait a second. What is this? Hey. It is one of Frankie's bracelets.

Derek: Well then she has got to be down here.

Derek: Cass?

Cass: What?

Derek: Come on, man.

[Doorbell rings]

Michael: Courtney.

Courtney: I hope you don't mind. You said you'd be here.

Michael: No, it is fine. Come on in.

Courtney: Michael, there are some pretty big gaps in your story. I think you know that. How about telling me what really happened with Lucas last night?

Michael: I am sorry. I really cannot comment on the operation right now.

Courtney: Well, a man has been killed on my turf.

Michael: I know that.

Courtney: And Lucas is walking around scot-free on your say so. I need details.

Michael: You'll get them.

Courtney: When? I got a commissioner to answer to.

Michael: Fine, well then tell your commissioner to talk to the club. Ok?

Courtney: I am not going to let this drop, Michael. I can't.

Michael: Fine, do what you have to do, ok? I really don't give a damn what you do.

Courtney: Calm down, Michael.

Michael: I'm through with the commissioner. I'm through with the club, all you people. Is that clear? I'm through.

Courtney: Just calm down.

Michael: No, you calm down. Your life is not in pieces.

Donna: Hello, Courtney.

Courtney: Hello. I had to ask Michael some questions about the shooting last night.

Donna: The shooting?

Courtney: Didn't he tell you?

Donna: No, but I'm used to that.

Courtney: Perhaps we should continue this down at the station.

Michael: That would be fine.

Courtney: Thank you.

Courtney: Sorry to bother you, Donna.

Donna: You did not.

[Doorbell rings]

Donna: Hi.

Jake: Is Michael gone?

Donna: Yes, finally.

Jake: You have to read this. Griffen Sanders is dead. Lucas shot him.

Donna: What?

Jake: They say he fired to save Michael.

Donna: Maybe what he told me was true.

Jake: What, Donna? What did he tell you?

Donna: He said that he only pretended to leave me, that there was never another woman and he was involved with some undercover government agency. And that if he stayed here that I would be a target.

Jake: Are you serious?

Donna: That is what he said. I can't read this.

Jake: Do you believe him?

Donna: I do not know what to believe. He said that Lucas was involved with drug smugglers and art thieves.

Jake: So Michael is an agent.

Donna: He never told me any of this, and now he is expecting me to believe everything.

Jake: Right, right. Listen, just give it some time. The truth will come out.

Donna: I don't want to give it any time. I want to get back to work and I want to forget about the whole thing. I want to forget about all of it.

Derek: You think Frankie could be in there?

Cass: It is possible. The opening is big enough, the grid is down. I cannot see anything. Frankie?

Derek: Frankie?

Cass: Frankie?

Frankie: Cass?! Cass, it is me! I am in here! Help me! Oh.

Derek: I hear something.

Cass: I don't believe it. She is in there. Frankie?

Derek: Frankie?

Frankie: [Yelling] Cass! Cass, I knew you'd find me! [Yelling] Cass!

Cass: Frankie?

Frankie: Cass, I'm stuck! I can't move!

Cass: Frankie, we're here! We're going to get you out.

[Frankie sobs]

Reuben: I work for a law firm, Winthrop and Edwards. We're trying to get a court order to stop the blasting. Ok?

Construction worker: It is too late. You got two minutes!

Stacey: I got it. I got the injunction against the city for 24 hours.

Construction worker: This looks real.

Stacey: Yeah, until a thorough search has been made.

Construction worker: Sam? Sam, shout it down. Sammy, it is a no-go. Ok, everybody, shut it down. We got a court order here.

[Horn blowing]

Construction worker: That is the one-minute warning. What is going on? Sam, what is going on?

Reuben: He and Derek must be inside.

Stacey: What? They should be out of there by now. My brother is in there!

Construction worker: Sam, Sam come in. Sam, come in. Shut it down. Shut down the operation.

Stacey: What is it? What is wrong?

Construction worker: My walkie-talkie has got a short circuit in it.

Stacey: What?

Construction worker: I can't get in touch with my demolition man.

Stacey: [Yells] Cass!
