Rachel: Yeah, ok, ok, Wendy. Just a minute, let me get these figures.

[Doorbell rings]

Rachel: Can you hold? Hilda, are you going to get that? Yeah, go on. No, it's ok. I need these. All right. Ok, fine. No, that's all right. Fine, I've got to go. Yeah, thanks. Where is everybody?

Ken: Hello.

Rachel: Oh, hi, come on in.

Ken: Actually I just came to give you a ride home, if you are ready.

Rachel: I--I'm not going.

Ken: Oh?

Rachel: I'm not going at all.

Ken: I'm sorry, what?

Rachel: I'm going to have to leave Odyssey, Ken. I have to stay here with my family.

Matt: Aren't you going to say anything?

Josie: I'm too...

Matt: You're stunned, I know.

Josie: Well, I just--I just never--

Matt: Well, you never expected it.

Josie: Matthew--Matthew, will you please let me finish my own sentences?

Matt: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm just...

Josie: You're anxious, I know, I know.

Matt: Yes, well now you're doing it.

Josie: Yeah I guess I am. I'm sorry.

Matt: It's ok, it's ok.

Josie: It's because--and don't tell me.

Matt: I won't, I promise. I won't.

Josie: I'm just trying to figure out what this means.

Matt: It means I want to marry you.

Josie: I know, I know. And I know that we--we talked about marriage some day but--

Matt: Some day is too far away, Josie. I realized that tonight. I was watching you at the party with Lucas, with the other people, and I thought to myself, "I'm losing her." I want to be the most important person in her life. I want those other people to know that they are dispensable, but I'm here to stay. I don't want to wait anymore, Josie. I love you. I don't want to see us drifting apart. I want us to live together. I want us to sleep together every night. I want to share everything with you, Josie. Marry me. Tell me you want it as much as I do.

[Doorbell rings]

Matt: Hi, John.

John: Uh-oh.

Josie: Come in.

John: It's awfully quiet in here.

Matt: How you doing?

John: No music, no laughter, nobody with lampshades on their heads.

Josie: Well, the party is over.

John: Ah, well that would explain it.

Josie: I'm sorry you couldn't make it. We missed you.

John: I thought this was going to be an all-nighter.

Josie: No, it kind of broke up early.

John: It's only because I wasn't here to keep it alive.

Josie: Probably.

John: Well, in that case I guess I'll just gather up my wife and be on my way.

Josie: Oh, you're looking for my mother?

John: Yeah, she was supposed to meet me here.

Josie: Well, she's not here, John.

John: Did she leave already?

Josie: She never came.

Sharlene: Three of them, all crazed, going after all the women. Real bad news.

Stacey: You threw them all out of this bar?

Sharlene: Yep.

Derek: I just asked them to leave politely.

Sharlene: Politely. They couldn't get out of here fast enough. Derek got a reputation in a hurry.

Stacey: Hey, you better be careful.

Derek: That's the closest I've come to any trouble in here.

Stacey: Mm.

Derek: And usually--

Stacey: Sharlene, will you keep an eye on this guy for me?

Sharlene: Yeah.

Stacey: A lot of attractive women around here.

Sharlene: Attractive men, too.

Cass: You're not going to say a word the entire trip?

Frankie: I'm trying to figure out what I can have you prosecuted for.

Cass: It was for your own good, Frankie.

Frankie: You haul me away like a sack of potatoes, away from my convent, away from my retreat, and it's supposed to be for my own good.

Cass: I don't buy this professed need for peace and solitude.

Frankie: Oh, you are making me very angry.

Cass: You're afraid.

Frankie: Of you? Oh, please.

Cass: I want a straight answer, Frankie. Why are you afraid of getting involved?

Frankie: Why? You want to know why?

Cass: Why?

Frankie: I'll tell you why.

Cass: Well?

Frankie: I can't tell you why.

Cass: Why not?

Frankie: Because you'll laugh at me.

Cass: I would never laugh. I swear I won't laugh at you.

Frankie: Ok. You're right.

Cass: About what?

Frankie: I can't let anyone get close to me because... because it's not safe.

Cass: Not safe?

Frankie: There's a curse on me.

Cass: [Laughing] Get out of here. [Laughs]

Sam: I still don't see why you're so upset about this.

Amanda: I'm just surprised that you gave the key to the loft to her, that's all.

Sam: Somebody might as well use it.

Amanda: Why can't she hang out at her own place?

Sam: I explained that. She's being followed by reporters and she does live with Josie.

Amanda: Uh-huh, so poor Olivia needs a refuge.

Sam: Yes, she does. Why do you resent that so much?

Amanda: I don't. I--I just have a lot of wonderful memories of that place, and it seems strange to have somebody else in there using it.

Sam: Wait a minute. All of a sudden you're attached to the loft?

Amanda: I've always loved the loft.

Sam: You've--not enough to move back.

Amanda: Who says?

Sam: Well, Amanda, you have not discussed that idea with me.

Amanda: Well, Jamie is still away. I just feel responsible for Steven, that's all.

Sam: Is that going to change when Jamie comes back?

Amanda: Maybe. If I can convince Mom to come back, then I would really feel a lot better about the whole thing.

Sam: Whoa, wait a minute. Wait a second. The last thing I heard when your Mom went out, you were real happy for her. You said it would be good for her.

Amanda: That was before I met Ken Jordan.

Sam: Oh, and you're not too crazy about him either.

Amanda: I just don't trust him. And I don't like the way he's weaving his way into my mother's life.

Rachel: Uh, things are very complicated at the company right now. Oh, I'm sorry, would you like something to eat or drink before you leave?

Ken: Nothing, thanks. You're talking about Colicas?

Rachel: The company needs me.

Ken: You said something about some fellow leaving.

Rachel: Our chief financial officer, Evan Bates. We all depend on him a great deal, especially Amanda. I'm a little concerned about how she's going to manage without him. And on top of that, Iris is getting married.

Ken: How does her marriage affect Cory?

Rachel: The man she's marrying is facing criminal charges.

Ken: Really?

Rachel: She doesn't seem concerned.

Ken: How's Amanda holding up?

Rachel: Amanda always feels she can handle anything, but I'm sure the strain is a lot for her.

Ken: But you haven't discussed it with her?

Rachel: No, I haven't had a chance.

Ken: Well, I have.

Rachel: What?

Ken: Talked to her.

Rachel: When?

Ken: Today. She struck me as being pretty much on top of things.

Rachel: You talked to her today?

Ken: At Tops. You raised a strong young woman.

Rachel: She didn't seem pressured at all?

Ken: No. As a matter of fact, she put the pressure on me. She gave me a regular third degree about my involvement with you.

Rachel: What involvement?

Ken: Amanda wanted to know what my intentions were with her mother.

Rachel: We work together.

Ken: That's what I told her.

Rachel: Oh honestly-on

Ken: Evidently she thinks there is more to it than that. She's suspicious of any man who looks like he might be trying to take her father's place.

Rachel: You're not doing that.

Ken: That's what I told her.

Amanda: Hello?

Rachel: Hi.

Amanda: So, we meet again.

Cass: [Laughing] A curse?

Frankie: Any man who gets close to me is doomed.

Cass: Doomed?

Frankie: It is hard enough to talk about this without you repeating everything I say.

Cass: I'm sorry.

Frankie: Where was I?

Cass: Men who get close to you are doomed. [Laughs]

Frankie: It's happened before, and it's happening again. You have to stay away from me, Cass.

Cass: Or meet my doom? [Laughs]

Frankie: Any man who gets close to me is in mortal danger.

Cass: [Laughing]

Frankie: You're laughing at me.

Cass: No. No, I'm not.

Frankie: I knew it. I knew if I told you, you'd laugh at me.

Cass: I'm not laughing at you, honestly.

Frankie: You had better not.

Cass: I'm not even smiling. I'm really very interested in this. Really. Tell me more about the curse.

Frankie: It's for real.

Cass: How do you know? I mean, what kind of evidence do you have?

Frankie: A building fell on you last week, didn't it?

Cass: Oh, right.

Frankie: What other evidence do you need?

Cass: Come on; that close call had mainly to do with your stubbornness.

Frankie: Baloney.

Cass: I had been telling you about Griffen for weeks and you refused to believe me. If you're calling that a curse, I don't know what--

Frankie: It had nothing to do with Griffen or with my stubbornness.

Cass: Pig-headedness. That's what it really was, pig-headedness.

Frankie: Head north.

Cass: Bay City is east.

Frankie: Do what I ask for once, would you please?

Cass: Why? What's north?

Frankie: I'm going to prove to you once and for all that any man who gets close to me is in mortal danger.

Cass: [Chuckles] Sorry.

Rachel: Well, honey, I've been trying to track you down all day. Hi, Sam.

Sam: Hi, Rachael.

Amanda: I suppose you want to talk to me?

Rachel: Yes, I do.

Ken: Uh, tell you what. Why don't you two talk, and maybe Sam could show me his paintings, if that's all right with you, Sam?

Sam: Sure.

Ken: Great, I'm--I've heard a lot about them. I'm very interested.

Sam: Fine. The studio's out this way.

Ken: Great.

Amanda: I don't like that man.

Rachel: Yes, I understood you saw each other today.

Amanda: Yes, at Tops. I sat down to have a polite conversation with him, and he was incredibly rude.

Rachel: Well, you were a little rude to him just now.

Amanda: What did I say?

Rachel: Nothing polite.

Amanda: I'm sorry, I have a difficult time being polite to someone that's been very rude to me.

Rachel: He's my boss, Amanda.

Amanda: I'm sorry, Mom, there's just something about him that I don't trust.

Rachel: You've met him how many times, twice? You can make that kind of judgment?

Amanda: Did you ever think he might be after your money?

Rachel: Are you serious?

Amanda: It happens, Mom.

Rachel: [Exhales] He's my boss, he's paying me. He's not what you think he is.

Amanda: All right. There's just something about him.

Rachel: I think that you're upset. I don't think this has anything to do with Ken.

Amanda: Well, what--what else would I be upset about?

Rachel: Evan quit.

Amanda: I'm handling that just fine.

Rachel: I wish I could believe that.

Amanda: It's been difficult at work without him, but we're looking for a replacement and--

Rachel: How do you feel about his leaving?

Amanda: It was for the best. If he wasn't happy at Cory, then--

Rachel: I'm not talking about work. You cared for Evan and he's gone now.

Amanda: Right.

Rachel: So, suppose you tell me what really happened?

Ken: I'm very impressed, Sam.

Sam: I'm not. I haven't looked at these for quite a while. Yuck. I don't even know who painted these.

Ken: The artist's torment.

Sam: Oh, well, they just seem...empty. Kind of nothing, you know?

Ken: Come on, you're much too hard on yourself. Those are first class, especially that one. It's striking. Is this yours, too?

Sam: No, Rachel's.

Ken: What?

Sam: All the sculpting, that's Rachel's.

Ken: Really?

Sam: Yeah. She's good, isn't she?

Ken: [Exhales] I knew she was a sculptress, but I had no idea she was this good. What a waste she hasn't kept it up.

Sam: Yeah, I keep saying the same thing to her.

Ken: She has real talent.

Sam: Yeah, but right now she doesn't have the time or the space for it, I guess.

Ken: Because she's working for me, you mean?

Sam: I didn't say that.

Ken: She must have had the same time problems when she was running Cory.

Sam: Yeah, she did.

Ken: I could arrange things to allow her to continue sculpting. That's not impossible.

Sam: You've taken quite an interest in Rachel's life lately.

Ken: You're Mitch's brother, aren't you?

Sam: Yeah, I am.

Ken: Mitch doesn't like me. Neither does your wife.

Sam: I won't deny that.

Ken: In fact, the entire family has closed ranks against me.

Sam: They do that. They did that to me. It's all because we just love Rachel so much.

Ken: I can see that.

Sam: She's a very special woman.

John: Your mother never showed up?

Josie: I just figured she was working.

John: She was, but she said that she would make a point of coming to your party.

Matt: Oh, maybe she didn't want to be here without you.

John: That's very flattering, but we had planned to meet here.

Josie: Have you been on duty?

John: Last 36 hours, yeah.

Matt: You should've gone right home to bed, doctor.

John: Well, I thought about it, believe me, but I didn't want to miss Josie's party and Sharlene said that she--well, there's no point in dwelling on that. I guess she just forgot.

Josie: Or maybe--

John: Maybe what?

Josie: Let's face it, she hasn't been too thrilled with my new lifestyle. Maybe she just decided not to come.

John: Oh, no, no. I'm sure that's not it. Can I borrow your phone? I'll call her at the Pelican.

Josie: Sure, it's right over there.

John: Ok, thanks. Josie, your mother has been under a lot of stress lately.

Josie: I know.

John: So why don't you try to cut her some slack? Things will get better.

Sharlene: [Laughs]

Derek: I know what that means.

Stacey: What?

Derek: You're taking off.

Stacey: Yeah, I have to. There's one more prospective nanny that I have to meet with.

Derek: You're still interviewing nannies for Jamie.

Stacey: Yeah, but I'm almost 90% sure on this one. I just want to meet with her.

Derek: Sure are spending an awful lot of time on this.

Stacey: Well, I don't know, I just want to have it all cleared up before Jamie gets back from Europe.

Derek: You know, Jamie asks you for something, anything, and you just go crazy.

Stacey: I'm not going crazy. I just want to be sure that he has the--the right nanny, that's all.

Derek: I guess I just can't help being jealous.

Stacey: I guess not.

Derek: Sorry.

Stacey: You don't have to be. I kind of like it. Good-bye.

Derek: Yeah. Yeah.

Sharlene: I'll bet you played sports in school.

Man: I wrestled.

Sharlene: Did you?

Man: Uh-huh.

Sharlene: I love wrestling.

Man: Really?

Sharlene: Yeah.

Man: Oh, maybe I can show you a couple of holds sometime.

Derek: Sharlene, you got a phone call.

Sharlene: Thank you. Sorry.

Man: Listen, you come back now, ok?

Sharlene: Count on it. Who is it?

Derek: It's your husband.

Sharlene: John?

John: How is it going?

Sharlene: Fine. It's great, couldn't be better. How about you?

John: I'm at Josie's. Obviously you didn't make it.

Sharlene: What?

John: You were supposed to meet me at Josie's party.

Sharlene: Oh, John, the party. Oh, I--it got so busy here.

John: Yeah, we figured that's what happened.

Sharlene: So, uh... I--I'll see you at home.

John: No, actually I thought that I would come by the Pelican and let you wait on me for a while.

Sharlene: Not now.

John: Why?

Sharlene: I, uh--it's just not good now. I'm swamped, and I couldn't even talk to you.

John: In that case, I'll just look at you.

Sharlene: It's a rough night, John, it really is. Why don't we wait and make it another night when I can only-- only think of you?

Amanda: There's nothing to tell, Mom. Evan is gone and it's for the best in every way.

Rachel: Did something happen between the two of you?

Amanda: Is Ken Jordan after you?

Rachel: No.

Amanda: Mom, I'm not blind.

Rachel: You're changing the subject.

Amanda: I'm not. You're the one that's changing the subject. You refuse to talk about this man.

Rachel: There's nothing to talk about, which can't be said for you and Evan.

Amanda: All right. I was attracted to Evan. It's over, it's finished. I've made my decision. I am totally committed to Sam.

Rachel: Why does that sound like a rehearsed speech?

Amanda: What do you want me to say?

Rachel: I want you to be honest with yourself, Amanda.

Amanda: Honest?

Rachel: All right, did Evan leave because of your decision?

Amanda: I don't know. His resignation was as much of a surprise to me as it was to everyone else. I haven't spoken to him since he left.

Rachel: All right. Do you think that was part of it?

Amanda: I think it may have been part of it, yes.

Rachel: Well, then it is for the best.

Amanda: I know, I said that.

Rachel: Are you all right?

Amanda: I'm fine. I finally realized that I can't have Sam and Evan both.

Rachel: No. It doesn't work out that way.

Amanda: I lost my father. I'm not going to take the chance of losing my husband and my family. I made my decision. I know what I want.

Rachel: We're a lot alike, you and I. When we finally decide once and for all what it is we want, we think that should be the end of our problems. I wanted a man who loved me and a family.

Amanda: Well, you got that.

Rachel: Yes, but you know human nature. Once we get what we want, we just want more. And that almost ruined our marriage several times.

Amanda: Problems, even big problems, doesn't mean that it's the end.

Rachel: Sometimes it does. But sometimes when there's an awful lot of forgiveness and honesty, it doesn't have to mean the end.

Amanda: Were you and Dad always honest?

Rachel: I think he was. I... I was always tempted by the forbidden. And it took me years before I was willing to admit that to myself. I guess I was hoping you'd be spared all that, that you'd be smarter and stronger than I was. Darling, all of us have temptations. But what distinguishes us is whether we overcome them.

John: Your mother wanted me to tell you how sorry she is that she missed the party.

Josie: Oh, well, is she going to come by now?

John: No, no, she's--she can't. She's real busy.

Matt: Oh, that's too bad.

John: You know, I've never seen your place.

Matt: Well, there's not much to see really.

Josie: Well, thanks a lot, Matthew.

Matt: What I meant was that it...

John: He probably meant that it's small, but it has a lot of character, right?

Matt: Exactly what I meant, yes.

Josie: Well, would you like a tour?

John: That'd be great.

Matt: I'll give him the tour. Josie always seems to prolong these things--makes you look in every closet, under the couch.

Josie: I don't remember John saying he was in any kind of hurry.

Matt: He's exhausted. He's been up 36 hours.

John: Thanks for reminding me how tired I was, Matt. Josie, mind if I take a rain check on the tour? I think I'll stop by the Pelican and hug my wife.

Matt: Good idea.

John: Whether she wants it or not. So you two go on and do whatever it is that you were doing, and I'll see you soon.

Josie: Maybe the 4 of us could do dinner some time next week.

John: That'd be terrific.

Matt: Sure.

John: Good night.

Matt: Bye.

Josie: Matthew, you practically kicked him out of here.

Matt: I need to know, Josie.

Josie: Couldn't you have waited just a few--

Matt: No, not how I feel. I have to know. Now --

Josie: I haven't said anything.

Matt: My mistake, big mistake.

Josie: Matthew.

Matt: I'll just chalk it up to lousy timing.

Josie: You haven't even given me a chance.

Matt: To what? To humor me? To tell me my proposal was an all around flop? Or I'm a nice guy, that maybe we'll do dinner some time? No.

Josie: Matthew, no.

Matt: Good-bye, Josie.

Josie: Matthew. Don't go. Please.

Sharlene: Sorry about the phone call.

Man: We all get them.

Sharlene: That's right, we all get them. You're very funny, Ben. Oh, thank you. So where were we?

Ben: Well, I think I was just about to pop the question.

Sharlene: Hmm. Which question is that?

Ben: The one that goes, "what time are you getting off tonight?" I figure maybe we could move this party to some place even more exciting.

Sharlene: What time?

Ben: That's what I asked.

Sharlene: Well, it kind of depends on how crowded we are. You know, it's busy tonight.

Ben: I got all the time in the world.

Sharlene: Well, I would like to get to know you.

Ben: There is no problem on that score. Hey, come on.

Sharlene: What?

Ben: That. I learned a long time ago about married women. They are nothing but trouble.

Sharlene: [Exhales] You think I'm married.

Ben: Yeah, that is exactly what I think.

When you look me over

Sharlene: I only wear this to keep the jerks away. Ben, you are definitely not a jerk.

I think you got to be the best

Sharlene: Ok.

Ben: All right.

Derek: Bbbbrrrr. [Sighs]

Jimmy: Time for a break?

Derek: Yeah. It's a slow night, Jimmy.

Jimmy: It looks like things have started to pick up. Your girlfriend just arrived.

Derek: Stacey?

Jimmy: No, man. The one who bought you the drinks. Check out the dance floor.

'Cause when you look at me that way I get so short of breath

Cass: You know, graveyards aren't exactly my favorite place. There's something about the ambience.

Frankie: Oh, would you hush up?

Cass: Silent graveyards are even worse. "Never stop talking in a graveyard," I always say.

Frankie: We're here.

Cass: This better be good, Frankie.

Frankie: Give me the flashlight.

Cass: This is a joke, isn't it? Huh? This is a payback for all of the imagined grief I've given you, isn't it?

Frankie: Oh, would you hand it over?

Cass: Antonio what?

Frankie: Almo.

Cass: Almo? So who is this Almo guy?

Frankie: Tony.

Cass: Yeah?

Frankie: He loved me. And I killed him. Are you hungry?

Josie: Matthew Cory, come here.

Matt: What was that for?

Josie: To show you that your timing wasn't lousy, and it wasn't a mistake. And that I will definitely marry you.

Matt: You'll...

Josie: Yes.

Matt: You are not kidding?

Josie: No, I am serious.

Matt: You'll marry me?

Josie: Of course.

Matt: You mean this?

Josie: Yes.

Matt: That's not a maybe.

Josie: Not a maybe.

Matt: It's a yes?

Josie: Yes.

Matt: You'll marry me?

Josie: I think it's finally starting to sink in.

Matt: You meant we're getting married!

Josie: [Laughs]

Matt: Why are you doing this?

Josie: Why do you think?

Matt: Well, because you don't want to hurt my feelings.

Josie: No. Because I happen to love you from the--the bottom of my heart, and I always will.

Matt: [Laughs] I love you, too, Josie. I love you.

Josie: I know. We have been falling apart, and I hated it, too. And I--I don't ever want to lose you.

Matt: You won't. What about your job?

Josie: I can do both. Why not?

Matt: I don't see any reason why not.

Josie: This is like a dream come true. I have someone like you and a great career and I just never thought this would ever happen.

Matt: Well, you should've asked me. I would've told you right away.

Josie: I believe that I can have it all, Matthew. For the first time in my life, I really believe I can have it all.

Matt: [Laughs]

Cass: You killed him? No.

Frankie: Yes.

Cass: Come on, you are such a kidder. You're serious.

Frankie: Sit down, Cass.

Cass: I think I'm going to have to stand, honey.

Frankie: Tony Almo and I-- it was right after high school, before I went back to Oklahoma.

Cass: You went together?

Frankie: He was my first real relationship.

Cass: What about Ron? I thought he was the man who killed your trust in other men.

Frankie: This is a part of my history that I left out, but I have to tell you now.

Cass: Ok. Go ahead.

Frankie: I was working as a waitress to try to get some extra money for college and that's when I met Tony.

Cass: You fell for him, didn't you?

Frankie: Oh, yeah. He was great looking.

Cass: Yeah.

Frankie: Charming. I asked him what he wanted to order and he said me. I couldn't believe it.

Cass: And that's when you killed him, right, for using a line like that?

Frankie: No. He loved me.

Cass: Did he have dark curly hair by any chance?

Frankie: Tony had always been a lady's man, you know--

Cass: Like me.

Frankie: ...And I was so young and--so I was always worried that he was cheating on me, you know? And finally I just couldn't take it anymore so... so I hired a private detective.

Cass: Oh, Frankie.

Frankie: Well, finally the detective one day did call me and say that he--that I was right. Tony was cheating on me. So I got the address and I went there.

Cass: You didn't.

Frankie: I did.

Cass: How embarrassing for you.

Frankie: More embarrassing for them. I walked in on Tony and this woman and they...

Cass: Got you.

Frankie: Well, Tony, he goes crazy. He leaps out of bed. He's trying to explain everything to me. He's trying to get dressed at the same time. He doesn't realize that he's putting on this--this silk dressing gown and--and--and I'm screaming and he's screaming. And all of a sudden he grabs his chest.

Cass: And that's it?

Frankie: Heart attack. The paramedics are smirking at him when they--you know, not only is he dead, he's humiliated.

Cass: [Laughs] I'm sorry, Frankie. Sorry, Tony, please.

Frankie: [Sobbing] This is funny to you?

Cass: Well, it's certainly not a curse. It's poetic justice. I mean, the man was burning his candle at both ends, shall we say. It wasn't your fault.

Frankie: [Continues to sob]

Cass: Come on.

Frankie: That's not it, Cass. The rest is so terrible, I don't even want to tell you.

Amanda: You make it sound like I'm going to ruin everything.

Rachel: I didn't say that. I think it's a good thing that you and Sam are trying to work things out.

Amanda: But you make it seem like I'm doomed for all the same problems that you had.

Rachel: History repeats itself, Amanda, if we refuse to learn from it.

Ken: Excuse me. I have a message from Sam. He says he's gone upstairs to see Alli.

Amanda: She's probably about ready to go to sleep. I'm going to go up, too, ok?

Rachel: I apologize for Amanda.

Ken: It's not important.

Rachel: Yes, it is.

Ken: No, no. What is important is why you never told me what a brilliant sculptor you are.

Rachel: Oh, I'm not brilliant. I'm ok.

Ken: You're far too modest is what you are. You should be working.

Rachel: It's not that easy, Ken.

Ken: Now listen, I've been thinking about it. There's no reason why we can't turn your room into a studio.

Rachel: My room?

Ken: Over the shop. The light is great--

Rachel: Ken--

Ken: We can rearrange the furniture, maybe bring in a work table. I could even build out into the roof.

Rachel: Ken.

Ken: Yeah?

Rachel: I've told you, I cannot come back to the Odyssey. I have to be here with my family.

Ken: I think that would be a mistake.

Rachel: I've already explained to you what the problems are.

Ken: Rachel, listen to me. We both know why you left here. It wasn't to find a job. You were looking for a new life.

Rachel: The company needs me. My family needs me. Amanda's having some problems that I need to help her with.

Ken: Hey, Rachel, I understand why you're afraid.

Rachel: Who said anything about fear?

Ken: It's very difficult to leave here. Mac created a wonderful world, a beautiful house, a loyal, tight-knit family.

Rachel: Ken, this doesn't have anything to do with fear.

Ken: But if you stay here, you'll just get swallowed up again. You'll be Mac Cory's wife and widow for the rest of your life.

Rachel: I am Mac Cory's wife and widow. I'm not going to walk away from that.

Ken: No, of course not. But you're also Rachel Davis, a very talented woman who took a very frightening, very brave step leaving all this to try to find out who she really is. Now, so don't tell me you're going to come back here for your children. 'Cause if you could take a step back from your fear, you'd see that your children need to learn to be adults. And they will learn that much more effectively without your ever-present protection.

Rachel: You don't understand, ok?

Ken: It just seems to me that you have a golden opportunity here. And if you let it slide, you could lose yourself. Think about it. I'll be back in the morning to pick you up.

Matt: I wish I had a ring to give you.

Josie: Wait a minute here. No engagement ring? We just better call the whole thing off.

Matt: Cut me some slack here. I wasn't planning on this.

Josie: Oh, wait. Hold it, hold it, hold it.

Matt: What?

Josie: You're off the hook. You already gave me a ring.

Matt: That dinky little thing--

Josie: I love this dinky little ring.

Matt: But that's a pre-engagement ring.

Josie: So we'll rename it. It is hereby, as of now, an engagement ring.

Matt: Oh, no, no, no, no. I'm going to buy you a serious diamond.

Josie: Serious?

Matt: Yes, a frivolous diamond wouldn't suit a woman who is formidable and imposing like you.

Josie: Matthew, I don't need a diamond.

Matt: Of course you don't need a diamond. All you need is me, right?

Josie: Right.

So open your eyes

Matt: But you want it. Come on; admit it.

Josie: No.

Matt: Josie, Josie, Jo--look me in the eye and tell me you don't want a diamond ring.

Josie: I--

Matt: I--

Josie: I'd love a diamond ring.

Matt: Of course you would. I'm very--

Josie: But it doesn't have to be big.

Matt: Oh well, how gracious of you, thank you very much.

Josie: Just big enough to show the whole world that you and I belong together. Mrs. Matthew Cory.

Matt: Well, you don't have to take my name if you don't want it.

Josie: Are you kidding? Bag a Cory man and not use his name? Are you out of your mind?

Matt: So, when do we do it?

Josie: Do what?

Matt: Get married. Tonight, tomorrow?

Josie: Matthew.

Matt: Why? We shouldn't waste a minute.

Josie: But we need time to make arrangements.

Matt: How much time?

Josie: Well, at least until June.

Matt: June?

Josie: Yeah.

Matt: Do you know what can happen between now and June?

Josie: What?

Matt: Well, the real estate market could get softer, Bay City traffic could get worse. You might change your mind.

Josie: No, never.

Matt: Are you sure that's not why you want to wait?

Josie: Matthew, it has nothing to do with it. It's just I've got a very hectic schedule ahead of me.

Matt: Your work schedule.

Josie: Yeah. I've got a promotional tour, and I've got public appearances. And I just--I want to get that all out of the way.

Matt: Ok, ok. Well, you make sure after all that, you clear your schedule or else we're going to keep--

Josie: I will, I will. I will call Lucas in the morning, and I'll clear May and June. How's that?

Matt: Yes, you do that.

Josie: We're going to work it all out, Matthew. It's going to be perfect.

Tell me to go

Well please don't look at me that way

Stacey: Hey, Derek.

Derek: Hey, how are you? That was fast.

Stacey: Yeah, she never showed up.

Derek: Doesn't sound too reliable.

Stacey: Oh, that's ok. I saw another woman at the beginning of last week. I'm going to call Vicky tomorrow and tell her I've made up my decision.

Derek: I'm glad you're here.

Stacey: I'm glad I'm here, too. It means we can spend the whole night together.

Derek: Mm-hmm.

Stacey: Mm-hmm.

Derek: Yeah.

Stacey: Yeah. Is that all you have to say?

Derek: No, just--just a minute.

You look at me that way, baby I got so...

Stacey: What's going on?

Derek: Well, there's somebody I wanted to talk to, and I guess she must have left.

Stacey: She left. Should I be jealous?

Derek: Why not? It's your turn.

Sharlene: You really are funny.

Ben: Hey, hey.

John: Hey, hey, what?

Ben: I don't--come on, what's going on here?

John: I'm kissing my wife. Why, you got a problem with that?

Ben: What do you mean? I thought you said that you weren't--

Sharlene: Ben, I'll tell you what. Why don't you get out of here, and I'll explain later.

Ben: Fine, great. Talk about being hustled.

John: Hey. I think you owe her an apology.

Talking 'bout bad girls

Cass: Come on, Frankie. Tell me.

Frankie: The way Tony died was in all the papers.

Cass: That he was caught in flagrante delicto and died of a cardiac infarction wearing a silk nightie.

Frankie: I guess so. At the funeral, his grandmother--she was this old Sicilian lady. She saw me there, and she started pointing her finger at me and screaming. And she's screaming in Italian. And I don't even know what she is saying until I get the chef at the restaurant to translate it for me.

Cass: What was it?

Frankie: The curse. I had killed her Tony, so any man I ever loved will die.

Cass: And that's it? That's why you won't have anything to do with me?

Frankie: Look, I know you don't believe in curses, Cass, but they are real. They have power. Mario, the chef back at the restaurant, he damn near dropped the osso bucco when I told him what she had said to me.

Cass: All because of an old Sicilian wives' tale?

Frankie: Cass, I don't want anything to happen to you.

Cass: Oh, Frankie. I'm really touched that you're looking out for me. I really am. But I don't need it. This is all--I don't know how else to say it. It's--it's--it's just nonsense.

Frankie: No, Cass, it's not--

Cass: I know you hate to hear that, but it's just--it's the truth. This old grief-stricken, demented woman said something--

Frankie: No, she wasn't demented. Tony was terrified of her. He said that she had this power. He called it the evil eye.

Cass: Look, why don't we carry on this discussion in the car? It's really getting a little chilly here.

Frankie: I didn't believe in it at first, Cass. I really didn't. But then every relationship I have ever had has ended in disaster or worse.

Cass: What's worse than disaster?

Frankie: And for a while--for a while, I thought that it was over, that the curse had been lifted. But when that building fell on you, Cass, I knew that it was--that it wasn't over. That it will never end.

Cass: Let me have the flashlight.

Frankie: Cass, you have to listen to me.

Cass: Look, curses only work if you believe in them. And I don't.


Frankie: [Whines]

Cass: No, no. Now, come on, I'm going to take you home. Come on.

Sharlene: John.

John: No--what's going on here?

Sharlene: Ben, just get out of here, ok? Ok?

Ben: Fine. You know, you're unbelievable.

John: What the hell is his problem?

Sharlene: John, it's not what you think.

John: What do you mean, "it's not what I think"? The guy is hitting on you-- where's your wedding ring?

Sharlene: I took it off.

John: Why?

Sharlene: It's a trick.

John: What?

Sharlene: I'm sorry, John. One of--one of the waitresses here told me about it. Single women get bigger tips. I thought I'd try it.

John: I don't like you making money this way, Sharlene.

Sharlene: John, what you saw was so unusual. Most of the guys don't even--

John: Look, I don't care what most of the guys do. We don't need money that bad.

Sharlene: You're overreacting.

John: I want you to quit this job, Sharlene. Tonight.

Sharlene: Ok. Let me find Al, ok? Let--let me find him, and we'll--we'll go home, ok? See if I can take--

John: I'm not going home. I got duty at the hospital tonight.

Sharlene: I thought you were off tonight.

John: Half of the residents are down with the flu. I said I'd cover.

Sharlene: Oh, you must be exhausted.

John: Don't change the subject, Sharlene.

Sharlene: John, you're so tired, you're cross-eyed. Now, I wish you'd try to get some rest. And--and not worry, don't--

John: I'd worry a lot less if you'd put your wedding ring back on.

Sharlene: I'll do it. I'll do it right now. And I will never take it off again, ok? Don't worry. I'll--I'll find it. It's--I can't find it.

John: This is unbelievable. You know where I'll be.

Sharlene: Wait. It's in the kitchen. Don't worry. Ok?

John: We're going to talk about this, Sharlene. We're going to have to talk about this at length.

Sharlene: Yes, we'll talk.

Now don't you ask yourself who they are like everybody else they want to be a star

Stacey: Sharlene, you ok?

Sharlene: I don't know.

Amanda: Where's, um...

Rachel: Ken left.

Amanda: He'll be back though, I'm sure.

Rachel: That bothers you?

Amanda: I told you how I feel about him.

Rachel: He's my boss, Amanda, that's all.

Amanda: Mom, you're being very naive.

Rachel: And you're being very presumptuous. I'm not trying to replace your father, Amanda. I could never do that. I would never even want to.

Amanda: Well, what does Mr. Jordan want?

Rachel: To be a friend.

Amanda: Why?

Rachel: Amanda, he knew your father.

Amanda: What?

Rachel: He was the one who sold Mac the red swan.

Amanda: Don't you think that's kind of an enormous coincidence?

Rachel: Maybe. Maybe it's more than that.

Amanda: What do you mean?

Rachel: He was with your father the last week. He explained to me how--how at peace Mac was with everything. And how much he loved all of us.

Amanda: You already knew that.

Rachel: It was nice to hear, though. It put my mind at ease.

Amanda: So, what you're saying is because of Ken, you feel closer to Daddy.

Rachel: Yes. In a way, I do. Is that so strange?

Amanda: What's strange is that you can't see through him. You actually trust this man.
