Iris: Where is Evan

Amanda: I haven't been able to get a hold of him.

Iris: Oh. Do you think he has left town?

Amanda: I don't know. I guess it's safe to assume that he has left Cory for good.

Iris: Rachel is coming home for a visit today, isn't she?

Amanda: Yes, she is.

Iris: Ah. And how are you going to explain Evan's resignation to her?

Rachel: Thank you, I don't know how long I am staying.

Hilda: Welcome back anyway, Mrs. Cory.

Rachel: Thank you very much. Would you like something, Ken?

Ken: Oh, no thanks, I'm fine.

Rachel: Thank you. Thank you for driving me. I can't believe that my car is still broken.

Ken: It was no problem. I got to drive on to Chicago to pick up that shipment anyway. I can't say you were much of a conversationalist on the way over.

Rachel: I was thinking about last night.

Ken: You're still not satisfied, are you?

Rachel: That the man who was with my husband right before he died, who sold him the red swan...

Ken: Is the same man who hired you to work in his shop.

Rachel: Pure coincidence?

Ken: Things happen that way sometimes.

Rachel: I've been thinking about it all night.

Ken: Come up with anything?

Rachel: I think there is more to this than you are telling me.

Sharlene: Hi, Michael.

Michael: Sharlene, hi.

Sharlene: Hi. Gosh, I haven't seen you since the night of the gala.

Michael: Well, a lot came down that night.

Sharlene: Yeah, I hope everything is better now.

Michael: Well, let's just say it's different. How's John?

Sharlene: Fine, couldn't-- couldn't be better.

Michael: Great.

Sharlene: Look, if there is anything that we can do...

Michael: Thanks, really. Just--thanks.

Sharlene: I'll see you.

Michael: Bye.

Al: Hey there, Sharlie, why you in so early?

Sharlene: I thought I told you not to call me that. I hate that name.

Al: But... yeah. Sorry.

Sharlene: No, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. There was no reason for me to snap at you like that.

Al: No problem.

Sharlene: Look, I need to talk to you.

Al: Sure.

Sharlene: Al, I--I have to cut back on my hours here. I can't keep going this way.

Michael: You were in bad traffic?

Lucas: No.

Michael: What's wrong?

Lucas: We have to talk about Griffen Sanders.

Jake: This music stinks. If you don't come up with something better than this, McKinnon, you are going to blow the whole thing.

Donna: Hi.

Jake: Just the person I wanted to see.

Donna: Guess what? I landed the Macintyre account.

Jake: Good.

Donna: No, thank you, I'm fine. Now, you're going to have to get a crew together for next weekend.

Jake: Ok, I don't think that's--

Donna: I took him to breakfast. And I absolutely wore him down. I think they call that a power breakfast.

Jake: I think that's--

Donna: Now, he's going to want to schedule the shoot for 3 weeks from Saturday. And I promised him a steadicam, so you're going to have to make--

Jake: Donna--

Donna: ...Arrangements for the steadicam. Then after I took him to breakfast, I called Irving Jacoby.

Jake: Uh-huh.

Donna: I touched base with Charlie Masterson. I like that phrase--touching base. I think it sounds very professional.

Jake: Wait, excuse me, can I get a word in here somewhere?

Donna: Jake, do you realize I have landed 3 accounts in the past two days?

Jake: Do you realize that we haven't sat down and talked for more than 10 minutes at any one time?

Donna: Well, I can only be in one place at one time. Where's Lucas? I thought that the "Sophisticate" presentation was for now.

Jake: He called. He rescheduled for 2:00.

Donna: 2:00?

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Donna: That's two hours away.

Jake: Right.

Donna: Well, in that case, I guess what I can do is go back--

Jake: No, no, no. You are not going anywhere. You--I have you here, you are going to stay. Do you realize, Donna, this is the big one? If we--if we land the "Sophisticate" account, we will be national.

Donna: I know that.

Jake: Everything else will be small potatoes.

Donna: I know. But since there's two hours to-- to use, I think that I can probably go out--

Jake: No, you can sit here and stay with me for two hours, all right? I need this. We can work on the presentation.

Donna: Why is it so dark in here?

Jake: It's a lighting effect, Donna.

Donna: Well, it's creepy.

Jake: You said you liked it. You said it was romantic, remember?

Donna: Wrong. I also think we should have some music. When Lucas gets here, I want this place to sound very lively.

[Soft rock plays]

Jake: That's it.

Donna: What?

Jake: You have been avoiding me. I told you I wanted to be with you again, and you're running away like a scared rabbit.

Donna: Jake, that's absolutely rid--

Jake: I want an answer, Donna. Just what is it that you are so afraid of?

Michael: Griffen Sanders' body is missing.

Lucas: Yeah, I know. The van that arrived at the morgue had a dead body in it, but the guy wasn't even shot.

Michael: That guy wasn't Griffen Sanders.

Lucas: I know. The city officials are calling it a bureaucratic mix-up.

Michael: It wasn't a mix-up. Notice the Police couldn't find the ambulance driver. Griffen obviously had his own man covering.

Lucas: The guy was pronounced dead.

Michael: I don't know what could have happened. Look, what's happening with you? Did you get a lawyer?

Lucas: Yeah. I'm going to turn state's evidence.

Michael: Did they offer you the witness protection program?

Lucas: I don't want it.

Michael: What do you mean, you don't want it? Look, it's your only chance. If you turn state's evidence, your only hope is to run.

Lucas: My only hope is not to run. I did it once when I was 16. I lost everything: My kid, the woman that I loved. When I look back on it, it is like I blew my whole life.

Michael: [Sighs] That's a tough one to call.

Lucas: It's my neck.

Michael: I'll help you any way I can.

Lucas: Why would you help me?

Michael: Because you saved my life, and I pay my debts.

Lucas: Thanks.

Michael: I'll help you, but I'll only help you concerning this.

Lucas: What does that mean?

Michael: That means I'm going to be watching you every step of the way.

Lucas: Fine. Anything I can do for you?

Michael: Yeah. Actually, there is.

Sharlene: It's just that, with the hours I'm keeping here and my husband's schedule at the hospital--

Al: Listen, I really hate the idea of losing our number one lady even a few hours. Business has really picked up since you have been here.

Sharlene: I--no, I can't keep going on this way.

Al: You made quite a hit with Ben.

Sharlene: Who?

Al: You know, the hot dancer. He came by earlier and brought this note for you.

Sharlene: "Had a great time last night." No, Al, I...

Al: Don't worry, he's harmless.

Sharlene: I hope so. I hope so--I mean, I know--I know that. I--

Al: Most of these guys, they just want a little attention from a pretty lady.

Sharlene: I don't believe this.

Al: What?

Sharlene: I--this is A... this is a receipt for some clothes that I gave to charity.

Al: Yeah?

Sharlene: I thought they had been stolen.

Al: So, you forgot. Everybody forgets. Excuse me. I got to do these gin and tonics.

Sharlene: Help line? I'm calling because I saw your ad in today's paper for--yes, I would. When could I have an appointment? Ok. Friday--Friday at 2:30. Ok. Dr. Green's office at Bay City-- Bay City General? Oh, um. Sharlene. Sharlene Hudson. Fine. Thank you. This has got to stop.

Amanda: I've already told my mother.

Iris: Oh, what a brave little girl.

Amanda: You don't have to worry about my mother, Iris.

Iris: But she is going to want to know why he resigned, isn't she?

Amanda: I will handle it.

Iris: When?

Amanda: Later today.

Iris: What about now? She is probably home. Why don't you call her?

Amanda: No, I'm swamped until this afternoon. I will see her then, and I will tell her then.

Iris: Oh, don't bother. I'm probably going to see her in an hour or so, and I can talk to her about it--

Amanda: I'll handle it, Iris.

Iris: Evan's name is bound to come up. And I don't want to have to explain that I don't know why he resigned.

Amanda: Why are you doing this?

Iris: Darling, I'm not doing anything--

Amanda: I will tell my mother exactly what Evan told us, which is nothing. And there is not very much we can do about it now anyway.

Iris: You are certainly handling all this in your stride, aren't you?

Amanda: And why shouldn't I?

Iris: Oh, well, it's just that, you know, you and Evan, you were always such a team.

Amanda: He taught me a lot.

Iris: Yes, he did. He was always there to help you out.

Amanda: Yes, I suppose he was.

Iris: And now you won't have his expertise at your disposal anymore.

Amanda: I guess I will just have to manage, won't I, Iris?

Iris: Yeah, I guess you will.

Mitch: Have you seen this?

Felicia: Yes, I know.

Mitch: You've seen it?

Felicia: Actually, I was at the Pelican when they made their big announcement.

Mitch: They certainly make a duo. The last time I spoke with Iris, she was defending him. What is it?

Felicia: Nothing, I'm fine.

Mitch: I don't believe that.

Felicia: It's just that I don't think Iris is--is good for any man.

Mitch: Especially for Lucas, right?

Felicia: Mitch.

Mitch: No matter who it was, you would be upset no matter who he was marrying.

Felicia: You know, I really don't want to have an argument, about this, ok--

Mitch: I don't want to have an argument either. I just want to get this cleared up and I don't see why not now.

Felicia: Excuse me. Tops. Yes, he is. Just a moment. For you.

Mitch: Hello? Yes. Um, yeah. Yeah, ok, I'm on my way in. Good, thank you. I have got to go in and re-shoot a layout this afternoon.

Felicia: Ok. Don't worry about it, all right?

Mitch: I'm worried about us. Look, I'll be back as soon as possible. We are going to get this settled, one way or the other.

Felicia: All right.

Cass: There you are.

Felicia: Hi.

Cass: Hi.

Felicia: Want a table?

Cass: I want Frankie. I mean, I need to see Frankie.

Felicia: Well, go and see her.

Cass: She left town.

Felicia: You're kidding.

Cass: And I don't have the slightest idea where she is.

Nun: We're not working you too hard, are we?

Frankie: Oh, no. Why?

Nun: Well, I wouldn't want your first day in the convent to be too taxing.

Frankie: Oh, look, helping out in the kitchen is the least I can do.

Nun: Don't try to do too much.

Frankie: I'm really grateful that you let me come.

Nun: When someone needs a retreat, we always try to help out. Although...

Frankie: What?

Nun: Frankly, when you arrived, I wasn't sure you would be suited to the life we lead here.

Frankie: Why? Oh.

[Laughs] Yeah, the bracelets and the earrings.

Nun: Oh, it doesn't matter. It really doesn't matter. I can see you are a very spiritual person.

Frankie: Oh, I am.

Nun: And also a very troubled one.

Frankie: Yeah. Well, it was getting a little rough out there.

Nun: Hmm, so you ran.

Frankie: Something like that.

Nun: Why?

Frankie: There is this guy that I want--this guy would be a big mistake, you know?

Nun: You love him?

Frankie: I have to get him out of my life. It would be best thing for both of us.

Nun: Are you sure?

Frankie: What do you mean?

Nun: Mary Frances, I would be the first person to suggest that you always take time to meditate. Contemplate when it comes to solving your problems.

Frankie: Right, that's what I figured.

Nun: However--

Frankie: It is the inner life that counts, right?

Nun: ...However, there comes a time when you must look at your problems directly. Face them. Don't run away from your fears.

Frankie: Well, of course not.

Nun: So, if you came here to escape, this convent is not the place for you.

Ken: Rachel, the only thing I can tell you is the truth.

Rachel: If you had told me the truth in the beginning, I wouldn't be doubting you now.

Ken: I realize that, and I'm sorry.

Rachel: I never used to believe in coincidence.

Ken: Why not? It is out there.

Rachel: Even when I was a kid, I was a dreamer, you know? I wanted things I couldn't have. I still didn't believe in coincidence.

Ken: You know, you keep speaking in the past tense.

Rachel: Well, maybe now I feel differently, since Mac died. No, actually it was since the red swan arrived.

Ken: Differently how?

Rachel: It is as though somebody is always there when I need them.

Ken: It's coincidence.

Rachel: There was this woman.

Ken: Who?

Rachel: I don't think you know her. Anyway, I don't think it was coincidence that made me wind up at Odyssey.

Ken: Then what was it?

Rachel: Maybe it was as though Mac wanted me to be there.

Ken: You must miss him an awful lot.

Rachel: Everyone who knew him misses him.

Ken: I don't doubt that.

Rachel: Especially the children. I feel guilty sometimes because I am so far away from them.

Ken: Especially Amanda? She was his only child with you?

Rachel: She was the light of his life.

Ken: I'll bet.

Rachel: She's had a rough time ever since he died.

Jake: Why are you avoiding me?

Donna: Jake, I don't want to talk about this right now--

Jake: I want to talk about it, Donna. I want to talk about it.

Donna: Lucas is going to be coming over here in two hours. We have a lot to do--

Jake: Look at me.

Donna: ...We have to get this place tidied up.

Jake: Look at me. Look at me!

Donna: All right, what?

I'll never let you down

Jake: Can you stand there and honestly tell me you don't feel anything for me?

I'll never let you down no way

Jake: I knew it.

Donna: Jake, this isn't the time or the place to have a conversation like this.

Jake: Oh, well, you tell me, Donna, when can we talk?

Donna: Michael has said to me that he did all of those things to protect me. We had a life together. I have to have time to think about all of this.

Jake: Ok. You're right. Some other time.

Donna: Yes, some other time.

Jake: You say when.

Donna: I'll say when.

Jake: Don't call me, I will call you, right?

Donna: Oh, honestly, you can joke about anything at any time. You are absolutely amazing.

Jake: Come on. Let's get back to work.

Donna: You know, you are right about the "Sophisticate" account. If we get this, we are going to be a national company.

Jake: Every time I think about this, my stomach just starts doing flip-flops, you know?

Donna: I know, I know.

Jake: I've wanted a chance like this all my life. Do something big--to make something out of my life.

Donna: Well, at least we agree on one thing. No matter what, we are going to get the "Sophisticate" account.

Michael: Look, I know that Donna's company is making a pitch for "Sophisticate's" video account.

Lucas: Yeah, this afternoon. They have a good shot at it.

Michael: I want you to scratch them off your list.

Lucas: You want them to lose out?

Michael: Yep.

Lucas: Why?

Michael: Because associating with you could become a very dangerous proposition.

Lucas: Really?

Michael: Look, I went through hell to keep Donna out of danger, and I'll be damned if I'm going to let her get exposed to more danger.

Lucas: You think they're going to go after my business associates?

Michael: Yes, I do.

Lucas: All right, I'll kill the deal with Donna.

Michael: Thanks. You know that they're going to try to hit you, don't you?

Lucas: Who, the cartel? Maybe. I can handle.

Michael: Well, for your sake, I hope you're right. Thanks.

Sharlene: Here's a schedule of hours that I think would really work. See what you think.

Al: Hmm. Let me run something by you.

Lucas: So listen to me, I'm going to turn state's evidence. Hold it, listen to me. I will incriminate a few small fry and let the big guys go. And after that, don't even call. Because if I'm not safe, I can be a lot of trouble.

Al: I do lots of private parties on the side, you know. Different hours, good tips, less work. Maybe you would like to work some of those instead of tying yourself up here so much.

Sharlene: No, Al, that's not possible. I have to know what my schedule is so I can--oh!

Al: It's ok, no problem.

Sharlene: I'm sorry. Gosh, I'm sorry.

Al: I got it, I got it. Well, I wish you'd think about it some more. Private parties would give you a lot of freedom.

Sharlene: Well, I'm all for freedom.

Al: Yeah? Then what do you think? It's good money--200 a party.

Sharlene: 300.

Al: 3?

Sharlene: 3.

Al: Man, you know how to drive a hard bargain.

Sharlene: That's not all I know how to do, Al.

Al: Right. Well, what the hell? It's a deal.

Sharlene: Deal.

Al: I'll let you know when the next one is.

Sharlene: Great. You leaving so soon?

Lucas: Yes.

Sharlene: Don't you have time for one drink maybe?

Lucas: What?

Sharlene: I still know how to make them like you like them.

Lucas: Look, one minute you're biting my head off, the next--I don't get it.

Sharlene: Come on. The way I remember it, Lucas, you always liked your women unpredictable.

Rachel: What do you hear from Evan?

Iris: Nothing, not a thing.

Rachel: Why did he quit?

Iris: Well, I think, perhaps you should ask Amanda about that. You know, I don't want to pry.

Rachel: I see.

Iris: I wish she'd confide in me, but there's really nothing I can do.

Rachel: I will be talking to her this afternoon.

Iris: Good.

Rachel: Oh, I understand congratulations are in order.

Iris: Yes. I wanted Lucas to know that I'd stand by him no matter what.

Rachel: I'm sure that did the trick--agreeing to marry him.

Iris: Rachel, I wonder if I could ask a favor of you.

Rachel: Yeah.

Iris: I was wondering if perhaps we could have the wedding here.

Rachel: In this house?

Iris: It was daddy's house.

Rachel: Of course.

Iris: Thank you.

Rachel: You're welcome.

Iris: You know, I half-expected a long lecture about becoming involved with a man with a questionable background.

Rachel: Well, I'm sure you've gone over that in your own head. The important thing is you want to marry him.

Iris: Yes, I do.

Rachel: Then you must be very happy.

Iris: You know, for first time since daddy died, I really am.

Cass: I mean, I have done everything. I have begged, I have pleaded, crawled, threatened.

Felicia: And Sharlene won't tell you where she went?

Cass: Not even a hint.

Felicia: Well, honey, it sounds like she wants to be alone.

Cass: I don't care what she wants.

Felicia: Cass--

Cass: You know what she's going to do, don't you? You know what she's going to do? She's going to sit around inventing reasons why we don't stand a chance, why we're all wrong for each other.

Felicia: Well, is she right?

Cass: Do I look like I think she's right?

Felicia: Well, you've had a few problems in the past.

Cass: We wouldn't have any if she'd be reasonable and do this my way. I care about her. A lot. And I know she cares about me. I can't let her run away just because she's scared of that.

Felicia: Good.

Cass: What?

Felicia: I don't think you should give up.

Cass: Well, now you're talking.

Felicia: I think you should find her, and I think you should make her listen to you.

Cass: You said it! Yes! All right! Yes! How do I do that if I don't know where she is?

Felicia: Well, you go ask Sharlene again.

Cass: Uh-huh.

Felicia: You tell her exactly what you just said to me. You make her know how important this is to you.

Cass: Right.

Felicia: If for some reason she doesn't listen to you--

Cass: Yeah?

Felicia: You come back to me, and we'll form, I don't know, a posse or something--

Cass: Posse! Posse!

Felicia: Right. Oh, God.

Cass: Thank you.

Felicia: Mm.

Cass: Oh, I can always count on you.

Felicia: Yeah, good luck.

Cass: Posse! Yes.

Felicia: God help her.

Mitch: Hi.

Felicia: Hi. I thought that you were going to be gone all afternoon.

Mitch: Well, I did, too. As it turned out, it was only one shot we had to do.

Felicia: Good.

Mitch: So, we have plenty of time to talk.

Felicia: About Luke.

Mitch: Yes, about Lucas, and how you feel about him.

Felicia: All right. But I think if we're going to do this, we need to get everything out in the open.

Mitch: Ok.

Felicia: I think we're going to have to try and figure out where we're going to go from here. I mean, we need to talk about our feelings. Yours about Rachel and mine about Luke.

Amanda: Mr. Cartwright didn't give any reason, he just canceled the lunch? All right. Thank you. Good-bye.

Ken: If your plans have changed, maybe you'd consider having lunch with me.

[Choir singing]

[Flipping through radio stations]

[Rock music]

Don't you know you can't fight fate you can run, but you can't run away no matter what you do no matter what you say when it's meant to be it's going to be that way don't you know you can't fight fate you can run, but you can't--

Frankie: Cass. Cass!? Cass, of all the rotten, low down, stinking stunts you have ever pulled to get to me, this is really the lowest, you know that? How stupid do you think I am? Let me tell you something, hot shot, you're one lousy ex-- [Gasps]

Sharlene: Hey, Al, Al, Al. I looked at tonight's schedule. It looks like if I don't show up tonight, you don't have a hostess.

Al: Yeah, but listen, you said you wanted some time off.

Sharlene: Look--no, no, no, it's no problem. I'll be in at about 7:00, ok?

Al: Well, sure.

Sharlene: Sure?

Al: What about John? Won't he be missing you?

Sharlene: Are you kidding? He's working another one of his 48-hour days.

Al: Oh.

Sharlene: All he wants to do is sleep when he gets home anyway. Being here is perfect for me.

Al: But I thought you wanted some time off?

Sharlene: Oh, Al, I do... after tonight, ok?

Al: Ok.

Cass: Hey, listen, Sharlene, I got to know. I can't let things ride like this.

Sharlene: You can't let what things ride?

Cass: Oh, come on, don't give me a hard time, ok? I know you promised Frankie that you wouldn't tell me where she is.

Sharlene: Oh, yeah, Frankie.

Cass: But I can't let her go off and isolate herself like this. It's our problem. So, we have to work it out together.

Sharlene: Well, if a man wants to find a woman as badly as you want to find Frankie, who am I to keep you apart?

Cass: Then you'll--

Sharlene: Yeah, it's in here somewhere.

Cass: Well, this is an about face.

Sharlene: Huh?

Cass: Well, you were so adamant about this before. I'm not complaining, mind you, I'm just kind of surprised.

Sharlene: Honey, that's not your only surprise today.

Cass: What do you mean? Frankie's in a convent?

Felicia: Actually, there are several things that are very clear to me now.

Mitch: Such as?

Felicia: That you're still involved in Rachel's life.

Mitch: Felicia, wait--

Felicia: No, wait. Just as I'm involved in Luke's life.

Mitch: What else?

Felicia: I know that I love you, and I believe that you love me.

Mitch: Yes, I do. So where does this leave us?

Felicia: I just think that if we can admit that we just don't know.

Mitch: That's hardly enough.

Felicia: Maybe that's all that we have right now.

Mitch: I hope not.

Felicia: Mitch... I just think that if we can really be honest enough--really honest--about our feelings about Rachel and Luke, I don't know, maybe we can--we can build from this. Maybe we can survive it.

Mitch: Ok. Then let's use it as a fresh start.

Felicia: God knows we need it. I do love you, Mitch.

Mitch: And I love you.

Felicia: Oh, I'm sorry, it's my production staff. I told them I'd give them a couple of hours this afternoon.

Mitch: That's ok, go ahead.

Felicia: See you later.

Mitch: Ok.

Ken: I'm really glad we got a chance to talk. Not that I wanted someone to cancel lunch on you.

Amanda: Yes, so am I. I'm sorry I haven't been out to see my mother and visit your shop.

Ken: Sounds like you've had your hands full here.

Amanda: Yes, that's true. Mr. Jordan--

Ken: Ken. How's the fish here--fresh or frozen?

Amanda: I don't know. I don't eat fish.

Ken: You don't? Well, you should. It's good for you.

Amanda: So, I suppose it takes a lot of money to run a store of rare collectibles.

Ken: Depends. I think I will have the trout.

Amanda: So, it doesn't take a lot of money?

Ken: How about we don't talk about my business, huh? Must be boring for a publishing mogul like yourself.

Amanda: [Laughs] I'm not a publishing mogul. Besides, my mother doesn't seem to find it boring.

Ken: No, she doesn't seem to.

Amanda: How did you meet her?

Ken: She walked in and asked for a job.

Amanda: You didn't see her before that? I mean, article in the paper or something?

Ken: Amanda, if you want to cross-examine me about my relationship with your mother, fine. Why don't you be a little up-front about it?

Amanda: Mr. Jordan, I--

Ken: Ken, Ken, please.

Amanda: Ken. I didn't mean to pry.

Ken: Didn't you?

Amanda: No, I just--I mean, my mother and you have been working together for quite some time now.

Ken: Yes, we have. But that doesn't have much to do with how much money it takes to run an operation like mine.

Amanda: I was just trying to make conversation.

Ken: Uh-huh.

Amanda: I thought it would be good for me to get to know you a little better.

Ken: Why would you want to do that?

Amanda: Because my mother works for you.

Ken: I think there's a little more to it than that.

Amanda: No. You're wrong.

Ken: Not that I don't understand. I mean, I think it's perfectly natural for you to feel protective about your mother, but that doesn't make me a villain.

Amanda: Let's hope not. You know, I just remembered. I have an appointment. I'm sorry, I won't be able to finish lunch.

Ken: Oh, I'm sorry.

Amanda: Yes, so am I. Good-bye.

Ken: Good-bye.

Mitch: Since Amanda's left, what don't we talk? Sit down.

Lucas: Sorry to interrupt.

Rachel: Hello, Lucas.

Iris: Hi, darling.

Lucas: Iris has some papers to sign before her 3:00 meeting.

Iris: Oh, my goodness, I forgot all about it. I'm so sorry. I forgot to ring Stanley Hicks, too.

Lucas: You haven't called him yet?

Iris: Oh, it's just I've had so much on my mind. Rachel, would you mind if I--

Rachel: Oh, yeah, it's fine. Use the library.

Iris: Thanks. I won't be a minute.

Rachel: Well, Lucas, I understand you and Iris are going to be married.

Lucas: Yes, yes, we are.

Rachel: That's terrific. Congratulations. When is the date?

Lucas: I don't know.

Rachel: You don't know?

Lucas: No.

Rachel: That doesn't sound like a new bridegroom to be.

Lucas: Iris and I are adults. I'm looking forward to getting married. I'm just hardly the type to go dancing down the streets.

Rachel: Do you love her?

Lucas: She's just what I need right now. We'll be very good together.

Rachel: You don't need love?

Lucas: We'll be fine. I have--I have an appointment before my 3:00 meeting. Will you tell Iris that--

Rachel: Yes, certainly.

Lucas: ...I'll see her later.

Rachel: Ok.

Lucas: Very nice seeing you.

Rachel: Nice to see you.

Lucas: Bye-bye.

Sharlene: Back again.

Michael: Oh, yeah, hi. You know, I meant to say something. I'm sorry I didn't talk to you before I left last time. I just had some phone calls I had to make to Europe before the market closed.

Sharlene: Oh, it's no problem.

Michael: Ok? Good. Al, can I have a burger and a beer or something like that?

Al: You bet.

Michael: Thanks a lot. So, how are you? You ok?

Sharlene: Sure, I'm ok. Why?

Michael: Well, when I was in here earlier, you just seemed a little uptight, nervous.

Sharlene: Well, I'm fit as a fiddle now.

Michael: Oh, great. Glad to hear it.

Sharlene: And how about you? Are you and Donna back together?

Michael: No.

Sharlene: What? Didn't you tell her everything?

Michael: She still feels that I betrayed her.

Sharlene: She's a fool not to take you back.

Michael: Sharlene, I lied.

Sharlene: To protect her, Michael. You gave her up--you gave her up to protect her.

Michael: Look, I not only lied about wanting to divorce her, I lied about the fact that I was an agent.

Sharlene: Michael--well, you couldn't tell her that.

Michael: No, I--I couldn't tell her that. But the reality is I lied.

Sharlene: Sometimes you have to change reality a little, you know? Some people just can't handle the truth.

Michael: What do you mean?

Sharlene: Don't listen to me. I'm just rambling. I hope everything works out for you. I really do.

Al: Michael, burger's ready.

Michael: Ah, thanks, Al. Well, thank you, Sharlene and... you take care of yourself, ok?

Sharlene: I always do. Hi, this is Sharlie Watts-- excuse me, this is Sharlene Hudson. I made an appointment with a Dr. Green for 2:00--2:30 on Friday. Yes, I'd like to change that please. I won't be needing to come in after all. Oh, no. Everything's fine.

Jake: Come on in. Can't wait to show you around.

Donna: Hi. Now, we haven't been here very long, as you know. We've only been here since last fall.

Jake: He knows, Donna. He's been here plenty of times.

Donna: We can't wait--

Jake: But we do have some new equipment.

Donna: Yes, we want to show you our new ideas about "Sophisticate," and Jake and I have put together a reel of all our things--

Lucas: I'm afraid I won't be able to see that.

Jake: Why not?

Donna: Oh, you're not going to reschedule again?

Lucas: No, no, I just came over in person to tell you that I'm going to give the contract to somebody else.

Donna: What?

Jake: We haven't even shown you what we can do yet.

Donna: Why would you change your mind without even giving us a chance?

Jake: Yeah. Hey, Lucas, we do great work. We've done it for a lot of people, and we can match rates with anybody.

Lucas: I'm sure you can. You know, in this business, things change. I'm sorry.

Donna: But--

Jake: You're sorry.

Donna: Lucas.

Jake: What do you mean, you're sorry?

Donna: This doesn't make any sense.

Lucas: I wish you could see it from my position.

Donna: Why would you suddenly change your mind, and not even consider us? Did somebody tell you not to hire us? Iris? Did Iris tell you?

Lucas: No, Iris had nothing to do with this.

Donna: Then what happened?

Lucas: Listen, if you two are going to make a success of your vision, you're going to have to learn to handle rejection a little more professionally. Now, I have a--I have a meeting. I'm sorry.

Donna: You're sorry. Insanity. He's got the audacity to come in here and say that to us. Obviously, his proposal to Iris has made his brain go weak.

Jake: I think someone did change his mind.

Donna: But he said it wasn't Iris.

Jake: I don't think it was Iris. I think it was Michael.

Iris: You know, I didn't think I could get Stanley to stop talking. Has Lucas left already?

Rachel: Oh, yes. He said he would see you later.

Iris: Oh, fine.

Rachel: I--I mentioned the marriage. I hope that was all right.

Iris: Oh, yes. Why wouldn't it be?

Rachel: Well, he just--he's got a lot on his mind. Iris, are you certain that this is a good time for you both to go through with this?

Iris: I should have known you couldn't just be happy for me.

Rachel: No, that's not it. It's just that Lucas is in a lot of trouble right now--

Iris: And so now you don't approve of me marrying Lucas.

Rachel: I didn't say that. I just think if both of you are going to be happy, maybe it would be a good--

Iris: Look, I am very happy with my engagement, thank you.

Rachel: Fine.

Iris: And if you think some of life's choices should be reconsidered, I'd suggest you start looking at your own.

Ken: Actually, I've been wanting to clear the air with you about something.

Mitch: Go ahead.

Ken: You asked me a long time ago if I knew Mac Cory. The real answer is yes.

Mitch: So you lied.

Ken: I met him before he died.

Mitch: Does Rachel know?

Ken: Yes, she does. We had a long talk about it last night and again this morning.

Mitch: And?

Ken: And she understands that it was a coincidence, nothing more.

Mitch: I don't believe that.

Ken: That's your prerogative.

Mitch: I guess it was just coincidence that your name showed up on her dance card, for example, at the fantasy ball.

Ken: I don't know anything about that.

Mitch: I don't believe that either.

Ken: I get invited to a lot of parties. Not all of them have dance cards, but--

Mitch: It's funny. You hardly strike me as the party type.

Ken: Maybe you're not my best judge.

Mitch: Maybe I'm not, but I certainly know enough about you to be suspicious.

Ken: You're still worrying about Rachel, aren't you?

Mitch: Where you're concerned, yes.

Ken: Mitch, you're a married man. Seems to me that if Rachel is in danger from anyone, it's you.

Frankie: The soup is really good today. Oh, Reverend Mother.

Nun: I can see things are going better.

Frankie: What? Oh, you mean what happened with Brother Joseph? Oh, I'm so embarrassed about that.

Nun: I think he finally understood.

Frankie: Oh, did he? Good, I'm glad.

Nun: I do hope you find some peace here, Mary Frances.

Frankie: Yeah, so do I.

Nun: God bless you.

Frankie: There you go. Oh, oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see you there.

Cass: Is the soup really good today?
