Donna: Hi. Oh, good, you're paying bills.

Jake: I'm writing checks, Donna.

Donna: That's what I said.

Jake: When there is no money to back them up, you can't exactly call it paying bills.

Donna: Jake, don't worry. These etiquette videos are going to make us a fortune.

Jake: Oh, right, I'm sure that they're just going to be hot items, aren't they?

Donna: Please don't be negative about this.

Jake: Where have you been all day?

Donna: Don't take that tone of voice with me. I can't handle it today.

Jake: What's wrong now, Donna?

Donna: Oh, little Michael refused to stay with Angela. He refused to listen to a word I had to say.

Jake: Well, that's not like Mikey.

Donna: He's just acting like a little beast. His whole world has been turned upside down again.

Jake: How did Mikey's whole world get turned upside down again?

Donna: Oh, that's right. You were on location; you don't know.

Jake: Don't know what?

Donna: Michael's moved back into the apartment.

[Knock on door]

Vicky: What are you doing in Amanda's office?

Rachel: Ken? Ken?

Ken: Probably do better with this. What do you think you're doing?

Rachel: Trying to find out who you really are.

Ken: You know who I am.

Rachel: No, I don't.

Ken: What are you after, Rachel?

Rachel: Were you the one that took me to the hospital when I was hurt?

Ken: Yes.

Rachel: That was a hit and run, Ken. Did you do that, too?

Josie: Oh, boy, oh, boy. Oh, too short. Too ugly. Oh, no way. What do I own that I can get married in?

Olivia: Josie?

Josie: Just what I need. In here! I thought you were going to be dancing all afternoon.

Olivia: Couldn't get into it. What's up?

Josie: I--I--I have a photo shoot, and I'm trying to do something different.

Olivia: Won't they have wardrobe for you--

Josie: Maybe I want to wear something of my own, Olivia.

Olivia: Sorry.

Josie: No--no, I am. It's just--this is really important to me and I'm kind of running late.

Olivia: Well, why don't you wear this? It's very virginal.

[Doorbell rings] I'll--I'll get out of your way. I'll get the door.

Josie: No--no--I'll get it. That's okay, I'll get it.

Olivia: What's wrong with you?

Matt: I know I'm not supposed to be--

Josie: Guess what? Olivia is here.

Olivia: Of course, I'm here. I live here.

Matt: Olivia, I thought you were dancing all afternoon.

Josie: I wasn't aware that you two were so concerned with my schedule.

Matt: Could I talk to Josie alone for a few minutes?

Olivia: Be my guest. I'll be in the shower.

Josie: I can't believe she is back here.

Matt: Don't worry about it, everything is all set.

Josie: Oh, Matthew.

Matt: I was about to say I'm not supposed to see you today.

Josie: Well, that's ok. It's not a church wedding or anything.

Matt: I came to show you these.

Josie: My wedding ring.

Matt: Uh-huh.

Josie: It's beautiful. I can't believe we're really doing this.

Matt: You--you're not going to go around like that after we're married, are you?

Josie: Cold cream and curlers every night.

Matt: Call Reuben. Cancel--

Josie: Don't you dare.

Matt: We do have one problem, though. We need witnesses.

Josie: We do?

Matt: Yes, we do. Reuben found out when he double-checked at JP. I asked him to be one.

Josie: Oh, good.

Matt: Then we need another.

Josie: Oh.

Matt: How about Olivia?

Josie: Olivia?!

Matt: Well, she's family... sort of.

Josie: Matthew, if I'm not going to have the family that I love with me on the day I get married, I certainly don't want a sister I got stuck with who doesn't even like me.

Matt: Ok, ok, it was just a thought. You really want this, right?

Josie: Yes.

Matt: Ok.

Josie: Don't you know that?

Matt: I--you know, your Mom isn't going to be there. John isn't going to be there. Are you ok with that?

Josie: You are going to be there. And that's all that matters. Ooh, not before the ceremony.

Matt: Well, I better go then.

Josie: Where are you going?

Matt: Well, I have to pick up my suitcase, and then Reuben and I are going to come around here about in two hours to pick you up.

Josie: Two hours. I'll be waiting.

Matt: Ok.

Josie: Uh, uh, uh.

Matt: [Groans] Two hours.

Josie: Two hours. Virginal, huh?

Jake: Michael is back.

Donna: Yes, you know I've been thinking I don't think we should let Lucas have the final say on this "Sophisticate" thing.

Jake: Donna.

Donna: What?

Jake: When did this happen?

Donna: Michael?

Jake: Yes, Michael.

Donna: Two days ago.

Jake: So you two are back together.

Donna: Hardly.

Jake: Well, you just said he was back in your apartment--

Donna: I said that he had moved back into the apartment, and that was all. He announced that the apartment was his home and that it was legal for him to be living there, and there's not a thing I can do about it.

Jake: I see.

Donna: He's going to be sleeping in the guest room.

Jake: Did you point out to Michael that you two will be divorced very shortly?

Donna: Well, we still have to sort out our feelings for one another.

Jake: Look, Donna, I know this is none of my business, but do you think you should be sorting and living together at the same time?

Donna: You're right.

Jake: I am?

Donna: It's none of your business. Besides, we have more important things to worry about than that. Mainly, money.

Jake: Great, have any ideas?

Donna: I told you, "Sophisticate."

Jake: I thought the ship had sailed on that one. Michael took care of that.

Donna: Michael talked to Lucas. That's all he did.

Jake: Lucas has the last word, doesn't he?

Donna: Well, obviously you haven't read the morning paper. I can't imagine anyone who's been indicted who's going to have the last word to say on anything.

Jake: What are you going to do?

Donna: I'm going to talk to Amanda.

Jake: Oh, Amanda is going to be thrilled with us.

Donna: And why wouldn't she be?

Jake: Come on! Evan left on short notice, and we're about to snap him up. Amanda is not going to be thrilled--

Donna: Don't worry, I'll handle that. I have an appointment with her in just a little while, and I'm going to talk--oh, no.

Jake: What?

Donna: Pippa Palmer is coming over here to do video tests.

Jake: So?

Donna: So, I forgot. Let me just call Amanda, and I'll reschedule.

Jake: Hey, hey, hey, Donna, I can handle this Pippa chick. No problem.

Donna: Jake, she's not a chick; she's a lady. Have you ever heard of old money?

Jake: Yes, teacher.

Donna: Pippa's family came to this country before the Mayflower, and they came on their yacht.

Jake: Well, I'll try not to scratch or anything.

[Knock on door]

Donna: Stop it. That's her.

Jake: Just tell her to sit down and take a load off her feet. I'll pour her a brewski--

Donna: Jake, these etiquette videos are going to be very big for us. And if you screw this up, I'll kill you.

Jake: And I'll be dead.

Pippa: Donna, darling!

Donna: Hi, darling, come in.

Pippa: Ooh, tres chic.

[Kissing sounds] I simply can't wait to get started, Donna--such a worthwhile project.

Donna: Darling, listen, I've over-booked myself. I got a call from Cory Publishing, and they desperately want to have a meeting with me.

Pippa: Oh, well, how wonderful for you.

Donna: You don't mind if I'm not here?

Pippa: Of course not, no.

Donna: Oh, good. Now, Jake will take care of everything, he's very good.

Pippa: Yes--yes, I'm sure he is.

Evan: A lot of information here about my personal finances-- stocks and investments. It's nobody's business so I'm pulling it off the computer.

Vicky: Amanda's computer.

Evan: Look, I don't have an office anymore. It's the only terminal I can access.

Vicky: Uh-huh.

Evan: It's fine if you don't believe me. I'm taking what's mine, and I'm getting the hell out of here.

Vicky: Must've been strange.

Evan: What's that?

Vicky: Not working here anymore. Coming in, not having your own office.

Evan: At least I didn't run into anybody that I know.

Vicky: Not even Amanda. She's working at home.

Evan: All the better.

Vicky: Are you having second thoughts?

[Phone rings]

Evan: No. You better get that. Get the phone--

Vicky: Right, oh right.

Vicky: Hello?

[Answering machine greeting starts] Oh, hold on a second. Oh, shoot, I can never...

[Answering machine continues] ...Figure these stupid things out. I'm sorry; just hold on a second. Oh, there. I'm sorry to keep you waiting. Can I help you? Amanda, hi.

Amanda: What do you think you are doing in my office?

Vicky: Amanda, calm down. I owed you a progress report on the Adams Cosmetics account, right?

Amanda: Yes.

Vicky: Well, I can't very well put it on your desk if I don't come into your office, right?

Amanda: No, I guess not.

Vicky: I don't know what you ever saw in this woman.

Evan: Shhh.

Amanda: What did you say?

Vicky: Nothing.

Amanda: Look, I left a list of things for you to do on your desk. Did you see them?

Vicky: Not only did I see them, I've got them all taken care of.

Amanda: Good.

Vicky: So I think I'm going to take a little time off.

Amanda: I called because I need somebody to write up a report on my meetings with the engravers in the Printers union.

Vicky: Somebody?

Amanda: All the information is on the in basket on my desk, and I need a report by early tomorrow morning.

Vicky: Anything else?

Amanda: Well, if I think of anything, I'll certainly call and let you know.

Vicky: Do that, honey. Oh!

Evan: Temper, temper, temper.

Vicky: I finally get some time off to be with Steven, and she makes me work late every night.

Evan: Well, I must say you showed admirable restraint.

Vicky: It's killing me.

Evan: Not one zinger.

Vicky: Well, I have to--

Evan: It's like watching a new you.

Vicky: I have to play it safe. I can't show my hand until I'm ready.

Evan: Listen, about what you said the other night--are you serious?

Vicky: I've never been more serious in my life. By the time I get everything worked out, this ugly desk is going to be mine.

Evan: Uh, excuse me, there's just one small problem. This place is still called Cory Publishing.

Vicky: Big deal. Amanda treats me like a flunky, and that's just fine for now. By the time she figures out what's going on, I'm going to own this damn company.

Amanda: Matthew.

Matt: Oh, Amanda, hi.

Amanda: Hi, I didn't know you were home.

Matt: Oh, yeah well I was--I-- I--I--I saw you at the desk there, and I didn't want to bother you.

Amanda: What's in the suitcase?

Matt: What suitcase?

Matt: E-m-h, going over to Jerry's to study and well...

Amanda: Finals, huh?

Matt: Oh, yeah, yeah. And I packed some clothes for a change in--in case I want to crash there.

Amanda: So you're going to be out all night?

Matt: Yeah, all night, yeah.

Amanda: That's too bad. I was hoping that you and Sam and I could get together for dinner.

Matt: Sorry.

Amanda: Well...

Matt: Well...

Amanda: Maybe tomorrow night.

Matt: Right.

Amanda: I mean, I understand about finals and everything like that, you know. It's just I haven't seen very much of you [Indistinct], And I miss you. Remember when we used to tell each other everything?

Matt: I'm not going over to Jerry's.

Amanda: Uh-huh. So where exactly are you going?

Matt: I'm going to be with Josie.

Amanda: Matthew, why would you lie to me about that?

Matt: Because we're going to get married. Tonight.

[Doorbell rings]

Josie: Who is it?

Reuben: It's your witness.

Josie: Don't say things like that.

Reuben: Sorry. Oh, you look good. Is that the natural look?

Josie: It's taking forever. Olivia is here now so don't say anything.

Reuben: Oh, I thought she was supposed to be out somewhere practicing her dancing.

Josie: Ah, well, so did I, but apparently her muse wasn't with her. Whatever. She's in the shower. She's been in there forever.

Reuben: And you don't want to fill her in, huh?

Josie: Are you kidding? She'd hop on her broom and fly off to my mother and John.

Reuben: Oh, come on, you really think that?

Josie: She loves to ruin everything for me. Believe me.

Reuben: I don't understand that. I mean, she knew that you were going to get married someday, right?

Josie: Someday. She just doesn't know that it happens today, and I want to keep it that way.

Reuben: But she was so happy for you when she heard you were getting married.

Josie: Oh! You know, I just--I wish I had a real sister.

Reuben: You do. The girl's name is Olivia.

Josie: We just happen to share the same father. I mean a real sister--someone I grew up with, someone I could share things with, someone I could trust. You know, I don't even have someone to go to the Justice of the Peace with me.

Reuben: You don't have a girlfriend?

Josie: What about Tess?

Reuben: No, she's working late.

Josie: Oh.

Reuben: Hey, Josie, we're going to have to tell Olivia something.

Josie: Why?

Reuben: 'Cause we need two witnesses, and we're running out of time. Besides, if we take her with us, then she can't run her mouth off to your mama.

Josie: I don't know.

Reuben: Well, think about it, all right?

Josie: All right. Where are you going?

Reuben: I got to pick up-I have to meet Matt first, and then we're going to come by here and pick you up at 6:00.

Josie: Ok.

Reuben: All right.

Josie: Oh, wait--wait--wait. If you're going to go meet Matt--where's my suitcase? Oh, could you put this in Matt's car for me?

Reuben: Mm-hmm.

Josie: Thanks. Olivia.

Olivia: Why are you putting things in Matthew's car? Thought you were going to a photo session.

Josie: I lied about that.

Olivia: Why?

Josie: Because Matthew and I are eloping.

Olivia: You're kidding.

Josie: No. And I was kind of wondering if maybe you'd like to come along and be sort of a bridesmaid.

Olivia: Oh, Josie, I would love to. I'm so touched that you asked me.

Ken: You're going to stand there and accuse me of hitting you with a car?

Rachel: Yes, because you seem to be responsible for everything that's happened to me since Mac died.

Ken: Who told you about this?

Rachel: Who cares? You didn't. Like you didn't tell me about knowing Mac, like you didn't tell me about the red swan.

Ken: All right, what do you want to know?

Rachel: How did you just happen to be there that night of the accident?

Ken: I'm beginning to be sorry I did--

Rachel: Just tell me, Ken.

Ken: I was driving through Bay City. I happened to see the car sideswipe you as you were walking along the highway. Brilliant idea, you know-- walking along the highway in the middle of the night.

Rachel: So you took me to the hospital?

Ken: Yes, and if I ever get an inclination to be a good Samaritan again, I hope somebody gives me a rap up the side of the head.

Rachel: Then why didn't you stay?

Ken: Where?

Rachel: At the hospital, why didn't you stick around?

Ken: What for? You were what was important. You were being taken care of. What was I going to do--pound my chest and say, "hey, look, everybody, I'm the one that brought her in"?

Rachel: You could've stuck around and answered some questions about what happened to me.

Ken: I'm sorry. The next time I bring a freezing, injured woman into a hospital, I'll do it the right way.

Rachel: And the Christmas tree?

Ken: What?

Rachel: The Christmas tree that wound up in my hospital room. You sent that, didn't you?

Ken: I was happy you were ok. I got carried away by the Christmas spirit. Sue me.

Rachel: So now let's talk about the flier from this shop that wound up at my house at Christmas. That wasn't just a random mailing, was it?

Ken: When I first brought you in, I heard somebody say, "it's Rachel Cory." So then I knew your name. Later on, I wanted to find out how you were doing. I don't rescue that many people, but I didn't want to disturb you. So yes, I sent the flier to your house. I hoped you'd stop in to the shop. I could just see how you were doing.

Rachel: And I did.

Ken: Yeah, lucky me.

Rachel: Why are you so upset by all of this?

Ken: Because I did a good deed, and my head's on the chopping block.

Rachel: At least you know what you did. I have to find out what you did from other people. And it looks like everything that's happened to me in the last few months, you orchestrated.

Matt: Josie and I want to be together.

Amanda: There are ways of being together without getting married.

Matt: I knew it. I knew you wouldn't understand. That's why we didn't tell anyone.

Amanda: Do you ever think I might have a point? You and Josie are so young.

Matt: You were my age when you got married.

Amanda: I was pregnant.

Matt: It worked out, didn't it?

Amanda: Look, I understand how you feel.

Matt: I'm beginning to wonder.

Amanda: I do, but what you don't understand is how much you and Josie are going to grow and change in the next few years.

Matt: We'll grow and change together.

Amanda: Marriage is a huge commitment. What you want now may be very different from what you want in a few years.

Matt: I don't like the sound of this.

Amanda: Well, I didn't think that you would--

Matt: I mean, coming from you, you sound like you're sorry you married Sam. Is that true?

Vicky: Gee, this union meeting sounds charming. I'm sorry I wasn't there.

Evan: What's that?

Vicky: Evan, that is not your stuff.

Evan: It's a budget proposal that I submitted. I have every right to take that with me.

Vicky: You--now what are you doing?

Evan: Listen, I thought you were so hot to go home.

Vicky: No way. Boss lady wants this on her desk by tomorrow morning. Evan, she's not going to show up unless you want to wait here till tomorrow morning.

Evan: What do you care?

Vicky: I don't.

Evan: You know, the way you keep harping on about Amanda...

Vicky: Yeah?

Evan: Well, I'm not going to say it.

Vicky: Go on.

Evan: You're jealous.

Vicky: Oh, stop.

Evan: Well, it sounds like it to me.

Vicky: In the first place, we are just friends. We both know that. That is it. And in the second place, I'm too smart and too good looking to settle for a basically unemployed financial whiz who has got a case on a married lady.

Evan: Oh, that's over with.

Vicky: Oh, yeah, right. What--you're just sitting around her office, like, hanging around for a bus?

Evan: No, I was hoping that maybe you would want to hang around with me.

Vicky: Evan, I know what this is all about.

Evan: Oh, do you? What is it all about?

Vicky: You don't want me to see what's on that little computer--

Evan: Oh, yeah?

Vicky: ...But I'll find out. Oh, bad boy. Always wanting what you can't have.

Evan: Well, you should know. You wrote the book on that one.

Vicky: Yeah, I did. Actually, I'm working on the sequel now. It all has to do with not being second best.

Evan: All right.

Ken: You have got a hell of a lot of nerve.

Rachel: Me?

Ken: Yeah, I happen to think that since you started working here, I have been the soul of compassion.

Rachel: Of what?

Ken: I've served as your escort. I've listened to your troubles. I put up with your jealous ex-lovers. I even dragged your frozen form into the hospital. What do I get in return? You trying to rifle through my desk drawer. Yeah, I think you got a hell of a nerve.

Rachel: Because I want to know the truth about you?

Ken: Did it ever occur to you to ask?

Rachel: You would never tell me, Ken.

Ken: I talk about myself all the time.

Rachel: You talk about your exploits, not about who you are or what it is you want.

Ken: Oh my, Mrs. Cory, ma'am, I didn't think you cared.

Rachel: I don't.

Ken: Guess I misunderstood.

Rachel: You know what I don't understand? You have been involved in the most painful and personal times of my life lately, and you didn't want to tell me that. When I came here, I thought this place was safe. Now it just seems like a trap.

Ken: Whoa, whoa, what are you doing?

Rachel: I'm leaving.

Ken: No, sorry. You're not going anywhere.

Rachel: Just move away from the door--

Ken: Not until you listen to what I have to say.

Rachel: What is that?

Ken: You're right.

Rachel: About what?

Ken: It was no coincidence that I was there the night you were hit.

Rachel: Why were you there?

Ken: I was in Bay City because I was looking for you. I'd been following you.

Rachel: What do you want from me?

Ken: Oh, I'm always curious about the things that other people value. That's what led me into this business. It's why I almost never turn a profit. 'Cause once something's mine, I never want to part with it.

Rachel: What does that have to do with me?

Ken: I listened to your husband talking about you--the kind of woman you are, the way that he loved you. And I kept asking myself, "what kind of woman would inspire this much love and devotion in a man?" And then I heard that he had died, and my sort of philosophical interest turned into a real concern. I kept thinking about you, wondering, imagining what it was like to be the one who was left behind. I read every word I could read in the papers, but it was never enough. Then someone suggested that I open a shop in the Midwest, and that's all I needed. I came to Bay City, and I started looking for you.

Rachel: You've been following me.

Ken: Believe it or not, I didn't want to intrude. I seemed a little voyeuristic, even to me. But then that car hit you. There was almost no other traffic on the road that night. You might have lain there and frozen to death if it hadn't been for me.

Rachel: Yes, I know that.

Ken: Now, I'm not saying that for you to be grateful. It's just... it was then that I realized that this might all have been for a reason.

Rachel: What reason?

Ken: I just wanted to know more about you because of Mac. So I found you. But then it was all so strange.

Rachel: What? What was strange?

Ken: After all that, you weren't at all the woman that he described.

Amanda: Of course, I love Sam and Alli. I just wish I had more time on my own. And that isn't a big secret. I've told Sam that.

Matt: What's the big deal about being on your own?

Amanda: You would know if you ever gave it up.

Matt: Why?

Amanda: The personal freedom, the ability to spend as much time as you want on yourself. That's what Josie has right now.

Matt: Well, Josie doesn't think it's that great. She wants to be with me. She's going to marry me.

Amanda: I thought Lucas had all these big plans for her.

Matt: I'm not going to change any of that.

Amanda: Does Lucas know the two of you are getting married?

Matt: Why?

Amanda: Because I'm thinking about something that I found on his desk. It was list of models that they want me to look over for upcoming covers.

Matt: Yeah?

Amanda: Josie's name was scratched off, and Olivia's name was written in with a question mark.

Matt: Are you kidding me?

Amanda: You don't want Josie to think that marriages would cost her her big chance, do you?

[Doorbell rings] Oh, shoot, I forgot. I have--I have a meeting with Donna Hudson.

Matt: A meeting with Donna--

Amanda: I want to talk to you more. Do you understand? Matthew.

Matt: It's ok. I have to go. You can have your meeting.

Amanda: Matthew, no!

Matt: Hi.

Donna: How are you?

Amanda: Hi, Donna, can you just sit down for a second? I'll be right with you.

Donna: Certainly.

Amanda: Matthew.

Matt: Amanda, Amanda, I am happy about this. I hope you can be happy about it, too. And please don't say anything to anyone. Josie and I will be back tomorrow, and we'd like to make the announcement ourselves. Bye-bye.

Amanda: There's nothing that I can say to make you change your mind?

Matt: No.

Amanda: All right. I love you, you little creep, so be happy, ok?

Matt: I love you, too, and I will be. Bye-bye.

Amanda: Bye. I'm sorry, Donna, this just is not really a very good time.

Donna: Well, we did have an appointment.

Amanda: Yes, I know.

Donna: Now, I'm not going to take up much of your time. I just want to discuss the promotional videos for "Sophisticate." Are you aware of the fact that Lucas had formally agreed to award Visions the contract?

Amanda: Visions?

Donna: The company that--

Amanda: The company that you formed with Jake McKinnon, of course.

Donna: Yes.

Amanda: Yes, I am vaguely aware, but I don't know any details.

Donna: Well, the details are that we didn't get the contract. Now, I've been thinking in lieu of everything that's happened--

Amanda: Now wait, Donna, I have to tell you that Iris, despite everything Lucas has done, still believes what he says when it comes to promoting this magazine.

Donna: Well, I guess you're all hoping he can promote himself out of a jail term.

Amanda: What is it that you need to know, Donna? I don't need to know anything. I want to tell you something. The reason Lucas did what he did is because Michael asked him not to give us the contract.

Amanda: Why?

Donna: That's irrelevant. The point is, have you hired another company yet?

Amanda: Not that I know of, no.

Donna: Then let me make a new presentation to you, just to you. I would love to see Cory Publishing get an opportunity to work with us before we get all booked up.

Amanda: I heard a rumor about your company. I was wondering if you could tell me if it's true.

Donna: What rumor?

Amanda: You may be hiring Evan Bates?

Donna: Yes, we may be using him as a consultant. I think it would be a great help. Do you have a problem with that?

Amanda: No--no, it doesn't matter to me one way or the other, but I am a little curious about you and Jake McKinnon.

Donna: Why?

Amanda: You are not the most likely of partners.

Donna: Oh, well, that's certainly true.

Amanda: So are you two all right with that or will you be able to build a solid company?

Donna: Oh, yes, rock solid. Jake and I plan to be together for a long, long time.

Pippa: Palmer for "Etiquette Today." Bon appétit.

Jake: That's great. Most people get in front of the camera [Indistinct]. You, you get here, you're a natural.

Pippa: Oh, well, it's all your fabulous [Indistinct]. You make me feel so relaxed.

Jake: Thank you.

Pippa: Jake, can I ask you a question?

Jake: Sure.

Pippa: What do you think about this project really?

Jake: Oh, when Donna first told me about this, I thought it was the most off the wall thing I'd ever seen. I mean, a video about etiquette? But then I saw you read the copy, and I--and I changed my mind lately. I mean, I could be wrong, this could be great. With that, let's do it again. Why don't you turn a little bit this way? Because I think it's a much better angle for you.

Pippa: Oh--oh like this?

Jake: That's a little too much. After all, this is a video about etiquette.

Pippa: Well, I don't think etiquette needs to be boring or stuffy. Do you, Jake? I mean, actually I've often found that one could get away with anything as long as one preserves--oh, the proper attitude.

Jake: Can one?

Pippa: I think so, yes.

Jake: Ok, that's a wrap.

Pippa: What? What did I do--what?

Jake: Oh, we'll just

[Indistinct] Next week to do a demo tape.

Pippa: You know, Jake, you--you know so much about this.

Jake: I get by.

Pippa: You know, I don't have any idea what to wear for this...

Jake: Demo.

Pippa: Demo.

Jake: Yeah.

Pippa: That's what you call it. Do you know?

Jake: Actually, you out there, all right?

Pippa: Well, Donna has excellent taste, of course, but you're much more knowledgeable about--about the camera, you know, and--and what looks good.

Jake: What do you want?

Pippa: Oh, I don't know. I was just thinking that... well, maybe you could come back

to my place right now, and... I could try a few things on for you. Well, we could just kind of take our time and... I don t know, what do you say?

Olivia: It's the groom.

Matt: How do you know?

Olivia: Josie told me. I'm going to be the bridesmaid.

Matt: Did you tell her what you've been doing?

Olivia: Pardon?

Matt: Where is she?

Olivia: She's in my room putting on her makeup.

Matt: Great. Come here.

Olivia: What's the matter with you?

Matt: Up the stairs there. Are you trying to sabotage Josie with Iris and Lucas?

Olivia: No!

Matt: Her name was crossed off of a list of models Amanda was supposed to use for the cover.

Olivia: I didn't have anything to do--

Matt: Yours was added on.

Olivia: Oh.

Matt: Yeah, "oh."

Olivia: I did not plan any of this. I haven't even said that I would do it.

Matt: Do what?

Olivia: Lucas came to me. He said that if anything happens so that Josie wasn't available the way she is now, they might need somebody else.

Matt: Why would he say that?

Olivia: Do you want to hear this or not?

Matt: Wait, was this a couple days ago?

Olivia: Yes. He asked, since I was the runner-up in the Fresh Faces thing, whether or not I could be available for some modeling assignments.

Matt: This doesn't make sense. Josie said Lucas was ok about us.

Olivia: She told him you're getting married?

Matt: Yeah.

Olivia: She probably didn't want you to worry.

Matt: If our getting married is going to blow her career...

Olivia: Look, Lucas was probably just angry for a little while. You know how those Svengali types are.

Matt: Hmm.

Olivia: I will tell him I won't do the modeling if it'll make you feel better.

Matt: Olivia, it's not you. I hope Josie and I are doing the right thing.

Olivia: Are you kidding? The way you two love each other?

Josie: Olivia, my hair has bump in it!

Olivia: Look, everything is going to be fine. I'm coming!

[Doorbell rings]

Matt: I'll get it.

Reuben: Hey, how you doing, man? You ready to get married?

Matt: Is the limo here?

Reuben: Yeah, it's right downstairs.

Matt: Ok.

Reuben: So where's the bride?

Matt: I don't know, man, I'm going to--

Olivia: [Singing wedding march]

Reuben: You were saying?

Matt: Nothing...

Olivia: [Laughs]

Josie: Well, what are we waiting for? Let's go get married.

Vicky: You're still here?

Evan: Not for long. I'm packing up my things, walking out the door, and I'm never looking back.

Vicky: And I finished this stupid proposal. That calls for a celebration, my treat--buddy-to-buddy, of course.

Evan: Buddy?

Vicky: Buddy?

Evan: You're on, buddy.

Vicky: Great, buddy. Let's get out of here.

Amanda: What are you doing here?

Evan: Well, I had some personal files I needed to take off the computer. I hope you don't mind.

Vicky: The report is on the desk.

Amanda: Did you get what you needed?

Evan: Everything.

Amanda: So what are your plans now?

Evan: Well, I've got a few irons in the fire.

Vicky: Ready to go?

Evan: Yes.

Amanda: I heard you are going to be working with Donna and Jake at Visions.

Evan: Yeah, is that what you heard? Yeah, I might do some consulting. Why?

Amanda: Oh, I was just surprised. I mean, the company seems a little small for you, that's all.

Evan: I'm touched by your concern.

Amanda: I know you can do anything that you put your mind to. I just hate to see you set your sights too low.

Evan: Don't worry. I never intend to do that again.

Pippa: Well, well, l at this little schedule book. According to this, you are free all evening.

Jake: Let me get something perfectly clear with you.

Pippa: Mm-hmm?

Jake: I am in the video business. That is all.

Pippa: Oh, Jake. I've always believed in mixing business and pleasure, you know.

Jake: If you want a rented stud, I think you're going to have to go someplace else.

Pippa: Oh, please, save me the righteous indignation. I know all about you and Donna.

Jake: Oh, what is it that you know?

Pippa: Oh, darling, everybody's talking.

Jake: Then they have no idea what they're talking about because Donna Hudson is a lady.

Pippa: Oh, I agree. The kind of lady who likes stable boys.

Jake: I assume you're saying that Michael used to be a stable boy.

Pippa: Oh, darling, darling, darling, Michael was just the first. I mean, after he left... well, let's just say that Donna has a very strong weakness for big, strong, handsome boys with blue collars.

Jake: You're out of line, lady.

Pippa: Listen, I've known her for a long time, and I've seen them all.

Jake: All?

Pippa: Oh, yes, of course. She discards them when they get a little too old, they lose some of their rough edges. But I must say, darling, you are one of the best. Oh, and being her ex-son-in law--that must make it all a bit naughtier, doesn't it?

Donna: Hi, you two. How did it go?

Pippa: It went very well, Donna, until the end.

Donna: Why?

Pippa: Something. Just a communication mix-up, I think. Oh, you know what? Oh, I think I- think I-I dropped one of my gloves.

Donna: Well, let me go look in the back room. I'll check for you.

Pippa: Ok, thank you. You're loyal; I like that. Think about my invitation, ok?

Donna: Pippa, I can't find anything.

Jake: She's gone.

Donna: What was she talking about? What happened at the end?

Jake: Oh, I think it was just a little disagreement about who's in charge, that's all.

Donna: Jake, I hope you didn't offend her. In addition to being the key to our success with these videos, she is a very old friend.

Jake: So I gathered. She seemed to know a great deal about you.

Donna: Why? What did she say?

Jake: Oh, nothing, I just have a feeling that I know you better.

Donna: Well, I'm not sure I want you to know me better.

Jake: I'm starting to think that's inevitable.

Woman: Cory?

Matt: Yes.

Woman: You're up next.

Matt: Thank you.

Woman: Make sure and bring all your stuff with you.

Matt: Yeah.

Olivia: Golly, she is fun. Sure wish they could make this place a little more grim.

Josie: Well, I think it's romantic.

Olivia: Love is blind.

Reuben: Oh, stuff, stuff, stuff. We need--we need the stuff, the--the marriage license, the--the rings...

Matt: Oh, yeah, I got that, I got that, I got that.

Reuben: Ok.

Olivia: Something old and something new.

Josie: I forgot all about that. Something old... something old!

Matt: Old.

Josie: My shoes. I got them last year.

Reuben: That's good.

Matt: Old shoes.

Reuben: That's good.

Matt: Old shoes. Something new.

Josie: Something new, something new, something new... my nose.

Matt: The nose.

Olivia: Here's something borrowed. The pen father gave me when I graduated from high school.

Josie: Thank you.

Matt: He gave you a pen?

Josie: Something blue. I don't have anything blue.

Matt: You graduated from high school, he gave you a pen?

Olivia: I don't have anything blue, either.

Matt: [Indistinct] And last of the big spenders, huh?

Reuben: Blue, blue, wait a minute, wait a minute. I got it. Here you go, farm girl. Now, you have everything. You have a great career. You have a great life with a guy who loves you. You have everything.

Josie: Thank you, Reuben.

Reuben: Ok.

Amanda: [Voiceover] You don't want Josie to think this would cost her her big chance.

Woman: His honor will see you now.

Amanda: Memo to Lucas and Iris. Pursuant to my conversation with Donna Hudson, I think we should consider using her company, Visions for the promotional videos for "Sophisticate." And I... messages.

Evan: Listen, about what you said the other night, are you serious?

Vicky: I've never been more serious in my life. By the time I get everything worked out, this ugly desk is going to be mine.

Evan: Uh, excuse me, there's just one small problem. This place is still called Cory Publishing.

Vicky: Big deal. Amanda treats me like a flunky, and that's just fine for now. By the time she figures out what's going on, I'm going to own this damn company.

Ken: You weren't at all the woman he described.

Rachel: What did he describe?

Ken: Well, I guess I just expected more of a risk-taker.

Rachel: I've taken chances all my life.

Ken: I'm sure you have, or Mac never would have fallen in love with you. And I'm sure it's natural after the loss you've had to take cover, to pull back from things.

Rachel: Are you doing this because I told you I was leaving Odyssey and going back to Bay City?

Ken: That big house must seem a lot safer.

Rachel: That--that big house that need me. The multimillion-dollar corporation that is also in trouble. It's safe, well..

Rachel: She remembers.

Ken: I guess the past is a lot more comforting than the future.

Rachel: Yeah. At the moment it is.

Ken: But you know what I would do? Of course, I'm not you--

Rachel: No, that's right, you're not.

Ken: ...But what I would miss is the [Indistinct] Of possibilities in the air.

Rachel: Yeah, I guess this comes over you a lot, doesn't it?

Ken: It's happening right now.

Rachel: Is it?

Ken: For the last half hour, you've been interrogating me, being totally unreasonable.

Rachel: I--

Ken: Now, just hold on. That's what you've been doing. But I... I've had the craziest feeling. I look at you, and I keep wondering what it would be like to kiss you.
