Evan: Where have you been? I have been looking all over for you.

Vicky: Here I am.

Evan: Well, what happened with Adams? How'd the meeting go?

Vicky: Would've gone fine. Except somebody tipped off Amanda.

Evan: Well, you knew that could happen.

Vicky: Well, it did. She walked in and found Cliff and me in her office.

Evan: So what did she do?

Vicky: I hope there's an unemployment office in the neighborhood.

Evan: I'm sorry. I warned you about that.

Vicky: Just like that, you know? Didn't bat an eyelash. A drink or something?

Evan: No. I want to know where you've been. Stacey and Derek said you left Tops over an hour ago.

Vicky: Everybody's a blabbermouth.

Evan: What did you do after Amanda fired you?

Vicky: I went to see Sam, ok?

Evan: I knew it.

Vicky: I wanted to hurt her, Evan. I wanted to hurt her the same way that she hurt me.

Evan: Yeah, and you swore that you would never do anything like that.

Vicky: It was too late, Evan.

Evan: What?

Vicky: Sam knows you slept with Amanda.

Amanda: Hi. I'm sorry I'm late. I just got held up a little, that's all. Oh, good, these are still all right. I was worried about them. Aren't these beautiful? I love tulips. It just reminds me that winter is not going to last forever. We're having Helen's famous chicken cacciatore tonight. She showed me how to make it. And I spent a fortune on pouilly-fuisse. And we are also having asparagus. I was going to whisk you off to a wonderful restaurant tonight, and then I thought it might be kind of nice just to spend the night here. I mean, we have so many wonderful memories of this place. And I'm glad to be back here... with you.

Sam: Tell me something.

Amanda: What?

Sam: Are you doing all this for the sake of romance or to ease a guilty conscience?

Ken: Ok. And watch your step. We're going downhill here. Ok?

Rachel: Uh-huh.

Ken: And drop your stuff there. Drop it right down, Rachel.

Rachel: Uh-huh. Well, I can't wait to see this in the light. It must be beautiful.

Ken: Yeah. Knock your socks off. We need some light now. Give me the lantern so I can set up. We'll set the tent up here for tonight anyway.

Rachel: The tent?

Ken: What do you want, a condo? Ha ha.

Rachel: Well, we don't have tents for both of us?

Ken: You want to backpack with two tents?

Rachel: Guess not.

Ken: It's ok, Rachel. The tent will fit both of us. That's why it's called a two-man tent.

Rachel: Wait a minute, wait a minute. We're going to be--we're going to be sharing this tent?

Ken: Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot to book adjoining rooms. You want me to call the manager?

Rachel: You didn't tell me we were going to be sharing a tent.

Ken: Rachel, it's a lot safer. There's animals and snakes around here at night.

Rachel: Right.

[Helicopter takes off]

Ken: There goes Jim.

[Rachel sighs] Goodbye, civilization.

Rachel: Well, ok, let's set up the tent.

Ken: No, I'll do it.

Rachel: Well, I--I can help.

Ken: No, no, it'll go faster if I do it myself.

Rachel: Ok.

Evan: Sam knows?

Vicky: I didn't just go there to tell him.

Evan: Gee, that makes me feel a lot better.

Vicky: I wanted him to talk to Amanda. Get her to give me my job back.

Evan: Somebody has to let her know what happened.

Vicky: I'm the one who got the shaft. I can't believe you're worried about her.

Evan: And I can't believe that I confided in you.

Vicky: I didn't do anything.

Evan: Oh, I'm sorry, Vicky.

Vicky: What are you doing?

Evan: I'm going to call Amanda and tell her exactly what you did.

Vicky: I didn't do anything, Evan.

Evan: You said Sam knew.

Vicky: He does.

Evan: Well, then I don't want Amanda walking into this thing blind.

Vicky: She won't be.

Evan: But you just said Sam--

Vicky: I didn't have to tell Sam anything. He already knew.

Evan: What?

Vicky: Amanda told Sam.

Evan: She did?

Vicky: That's what he said. Apparently they have talked the whole thing out. They have reached like a whole new level of understanding about her little boo-boo with you.

Evan: I find that very hard to believe.

Vicky: How else could he have found out?

Evan: I mean I find it hard to believe that he would just sit there and accept it.

Vicky: I heard it with my own ears.

Evan: Vicky, if she told him about me, then that marriage could be over. I don't care what Sam says.

Amanda: Guilty conscience?

Sam: Yeah. I mean, if we're going to make this marriage work, we ought to have everything out on the table, right? Don't worry. You don't have to be afraid.

Amanda: You're talking about Evan.

Sam: Yes, I'm talking about Evan.

Amanda: Ok. I know I denied everything when you would talk to me about him-- about how close I was getting.

Sam: Go on.

Amanda: What I was denying, I wasn't just denying it to you, I was denying it to me, too. I did get too close to him. But, Sam, I never planned that. I thought everything was just business, but it wasn't.

Sam: What was it? Amanda?

Amanda: This is really difficult to say to you.

Sam: It's ok. I want to know.

Amanda: It was an infatuation, an attraction of some kind--

Sam: What kind of attraction?

Amanda: Sam, I'm sorry I ever had any feelings for him.

Sam: Feelings are one thing, actions are another. Did you act on how you felt?

Amanda: No. It was just a passing thing. It's over. Nothing that I ever felt for Evan would--would change the way I feel about you. That's the truth.

[Telephone rings]

Sam: Yeah. Yes, she's here. It's for you. It's Evan.

Paulina: Must be awfully complicated having so much money.

Jamie: Well, I don't think I'm going to have that much when I'm done with this.

Paulina: But I mean even growing up in a house like this.

Jamie: I didn't.

Paulina: You didn't?

Jamie: No. My whole life changed when my mother married Mac Cory.

Paulina: Oh, I just assumed that...

Jamie: She was divorced and supporting herself and me. Believe me, I know what it's like not to have money. And I'm going to make sure that you never know what it's like.

Paulina: Must be a good feeling knowing that he'll never be hungry or alone.

Jamie: Money's great. Believe me, I'm not knocking it. It's just more important for me to give Steven here the tools to lead a happy life so he can choose and say what he wants.

Paulina: Sure.

Jamie: Listen, I--from what you told me about your family, it sounds like that they gave you that.

Paulina: Yeah. Yeah, sure, they were great. Do you want me to take him?

Jamie: What do your folks think about your working here?

Paulina: Well, you know, I haven't really had a chance to call them and tell them yet.

[Doorbell rings] Oh, I'll get it.

Jamie: No, no, no, Hilda's up. Aren't they worried about you? I mean, a close family like that. You should call them, tell them what a great guy you're working for.

Paulina: You mean now?

Jamie: Yeah, sure, why not? You're up for a little while, aren't you? Mitch.

Mitch: I'm sorry to barge in this time of night, but I'm afraid your Mom might be in some sort of trouble.

Rachel: It's so peaceful.

Ken: Yeah. And cold.

Rachel: Yeah.

Ken: The temperature falls 30 degrees when the sun drops behind that mountain. Let's light the fire.

Rachel: No, no, no, let's not. You can't see the stars as well.

Ken: All right. Yeah. Let's get this around you.

Rachel: Oh, thanks. Ooh.

Ken: How's that?

Rachel: Yeah.

Ken: Boy, it's amazing.

Rachel: What is?

Ken: A place like this. Just being here you feel free.

Rachel: This must be why you do this.

Ken: Yeah, I guess. I remember walking into a valley in Alaska once. And just walking in, I just drop-dead knew that I was the first human being that had ever set foot in there.

Rachel: Oh, gosh.

Ken: The guide warned me about isolation, and I just felt free.

Rachel: Yeah. I never feel lonely out in--in nature. Ken, I hate to bring this up, but we have, um, the phone, right?

Ken: Yeah.

Rachel: The radio phone?

Ken: Yeah.

Rachel: Can I use it to call my family? Just tell them I've arrived safely.

Ken: Not tonight.

Rachel: Why not?

Ken: Well, it's not one you can just pick up and dial, you know? I've got to set some things up.

Rachel: Oh. Oh, ok.

Ken: Yeah, let's light this fire. It'll keep the critters away.

Rachel: What critters are we talking about?

Ken: All kinds. The desert's full of them. Don't worry. You're in good hands.

Jamie: Now, you be a good boy for Paulina, ok? And you start bagging those z's, yes.

Paulina: He'll be fine.

Jamie: Good.

Paulina: Let's go to sleep.

Jamie: What's wrong, Mitch?

Mitch: I can't believe your Mom went off with Ken Jordan.

Jamie: There was no talking her out of it.

Mitch: I know, I know. But I happened to go by his store after they left.

Jamie: And?

Mitch: Guess who's working there.

Jamie: I don't know.

Mitch: Mrs. Johnson. The lady that was Rachel's guardian angel. The lady that kept showing up in her life.

Jamie: She's working at the Odyssey?

Mitch: I don't know. For all I know, they might be partners, or more likely a shill. I mean, who knows? It's very possible that she led Rachel to the Odyssey, and then Jordan took it from there.

Jamie: Mitch, do you really think this is a set-up?

Mitch: Yes, I think so. I mean, what else could it be?

Jamie: What do we do?

Mitch: We need to find Rachel.

Jamie: Well, what does Jordan want with her?

Mitch: I don't know. Every time I try to get some information on him, it's like I run into a wall.

Jamie: Look, Mom left a rough itinerary. It's--it's in the library. Come on.

[Knock on door]

Paulina: One thing about this place--it's never dull. Derek?

Derek: Thanks. It's windy out there.

Paulina: What are you doing here?

Derek: I want to talk to you.

Paulina: Why?

Derek: I just left Stacey at Tops with a client.

Paulina: Oh, fancy.

Derek: It's a good thing the guy showed up, too, because she was asking me if I knew more about you than I was saying.

Paulina: Why? What does she care? She's the one who got me this job. Why doesn't she just leave me alone?

Derek: I don't know. She just won't.

Paulina: Look, Derek, I'm doing a great job here. I take good care of that baby. So you just hold on a little bit longer. She'll stop asking questions, believe me.

Derek: Oh, and in the meantime, I just lie to her?

Paulina: You can't tell her that you know me.

Derek: What are you trying to do? Impress Jamie Frame?

Paulina: Of course not.

Derek: Because it's not going to work, you know. Look, people like you and me are never going to be good enough for him. And I don't care what kind of a history you invent for yourself.

Paulina: I don't need to impress anybody.

Derek: Well, then what is the big deal? So what if the Corys find out that you grew up in foster homes? That doesn't change the fact that you take very good care of Steven.

Paulina: They'll think I'm a liar.

Derek: You are. And so am I.

Paulina: Look, Derek, I have been on the road to nowhere my entire life. But this job, these people-- they could change all that for me.

Derek: You're just an employee, Paulina. That's it.

Paulina: I told them that I came from a big family. And that I grew up with lots of love and respect. And the Corys--they treat me like that kind of person, Derek. I start to think I could be that kind of person. Derek, you were the one person in my life that ever took care of me. You were like a big brother to me.

Derek: And now you're asking me to lie--

Paulina: No.

Derek: ...To one of the few people on this earth who means anything to me.

Paulina: I am asking you not to turn your back on me.

Stacey: Just tell me the truth.

Lucas: Ok, you're angry because I interrupted your date with Derek.

Stacey: I'm not happy about it, but I can talk to him later.

Lucas: All right, tell him that I didn't mean for him to run off.

Stacey: He didn't. He left because he doesn't like you.

Lucas: And what about you?

Stacey: You're my client. How I feel about you personally doesn't much matter.

Lucas: Ok. What's my best shot?

Stacey: All right. I don't want to see you go to trial.

Lucas: I don't either. I was hoping you'd find a way to avoid that.

Stacey: Oh, so you want me to start bribing judges, is that it?

Lucas: I didn't say anything about anything illegal, did I--

Stacey: No, but you said, "I was hoping that you would find a way," implying that finding a way is something--

Lucas: So you immediately assume I want you to do something unethical, right?

Stacey: Lucas, you look so wounded. You know, you're not exactly the Albert Schweitzer of Bay City.

Lucas: I'm not exactly Al Capone, either.

Stacey: Maybe not. I don't see witnesses lining up around the block for you.

Lucas: I saved Michael Hudson's life, didn't I?

Stacey: All right. Let me play prosecuting attorney.

Lucas: Ok.

Stacey: Why is it, Mr. Lucas, that you just happened to be in Michael Hudson's box at the right time with a loaded gun? Or perhaps was it that you had prior knowledge of the attempt on his life?

Lucas: Isn't this leading the witness?

Stacey: Lucas, I have a friend in the D.A.'s office. He seems to think you're willing to make a deal.

Lucas: I talk, racketeering charges get dropped.

Stacey: Maybe reduced.

Lucas: Great.

Stacey: They'll jump at it. First of all, they're going to want names. They're going to want to be able to build a substantial case against the big guys. So, you see, if you go in there and you shoot your mouth off, not knowing what you're talking about or not giving them enough, then you're going to be in worse trouble than you are now.

Lucas: Ok, I sing like a canary.

Stacey: That's right. And you start with me. You tell me exactly how deep into this you are.

Lucas: Ok, first of all, I want to know, are we bound by the lawyer-client relationship?

Stacey: Why?

Lucas: Because what I tell you I don't want repeated to anyone.

Sam: Go on, talk to him.

Amanda: No, I have nothing to say to him.

Sam: Sorry, Evan. She says she has nothing to say to you.

Evan: Sam, tell her it's important. Tell her I--

Sam: Bye, Ev.

Amanda: I'm sorry. I don't know why he called.

Sam: You don't?

Amanda: No. Is there something on your mind?

Sam: I was just thinking about my Shakespeare class in college.

Amanda: What?

Sam: When we studied the tragedies, the guy went on and on about something he called "the fatal flaw." Like Othello, you know? He blew everything. Just couldn't help himself.

Amanda: Sam, why are you doing this?

Sam: I was thinking...not too many tragic heroes around these days. But fatal flaws--they're the real thing. Just a little personality quirk like, um, having to maintain a certain image. Or being just a little bit of a coward. Sounds innocuous enough, but it can cause so much pain.

Amanda: Sam...

Sam: That's when people start to lie to you. Or only tell you part of the truth. That sort of stuff almost finished us when we were going together.

Amanda: You mean I almost finished us.

Sam: No. I was there, too. I was such a hothead. I made it hard for anyone to be direct and honest. But I think I've changed. I think that someone I love can tell me anything and I won't fly apart and start breaking things. You see, I don't want to protect a part of myself if it costs us everything we have.

Amanda: I don't, either.

Sam: You don't?

Amanda: No.

Sam: All right, then I think things have got to change.

Amanda: Sam, please. Please just give us one more try. For us and for Alli.

Sam: What about Evan?

Amanda: I'll never mention his name again. He's out of our lives, Sam.

Sam: "When my love swears that she is made of truth, I do believe her."

Amanda: Is that Shakespeare, too?

Sam: Yeah. One of the sonnets.

Amanda: Why don't I get us some wine and we'll talk. I'm going to make up the past few months to you. I promise.

Sam: "When my love swears that she is made of truth, I do believe her though I know she lies."

Evan: He wouldn't put her on the phone. Said she didn't even want to talk to me.

Vicky: She probably doesn't.

Evan: Well, I find that very hard to believe.

Vicky: Then you haven't been listening. Look, Evan, Amanda's gone back to Sam. She's as through with you as she is with me.

Evan: I just thought when she told him that would mean she's ready to leave.

Vicky: Look, pal, Amanda only does what's best for Amanda. So why did I have to go and work for her stinking family's company anyway?

Evan: Because you needed their approval.

Vicky: And you don't?

Evan: No, not anymore.

Vicky: I thought I was going to do so well. I was going to make Steven so proud of me.

Evan: Hey. Steven can still be proud of you. You don't need the Corys for that.

Vicky: Thanks.

Evan: Well, it's the truth.

Vicky: It would've been sweet revenge to do it at Cory Publishing, though, wouldn't it? Right under their snooty little noses?

Evan: Jamie's nose, too, huh?

Vicky: Yeah. Still matters what he thinks about me. Unbelievable, isn't it?

Evan: Do you think he knows that it still matters?

Vicky: Probably.

Evan: Well, I'll tell you one thing. I don't give a damn what Amanda thinks anymore about anything.

Vicky: Isn't she something? Cheats on her husband, lies to his face until she can't lie anymore, he finds out about what she did, and she still gets him back. Why do some people have all the luck, huh?

Amanda: I was thinking we could pull out the futon and have dinner there.

Sam: Yeah.

Amanda: Sam, I know you want to talk, but I really don't. I just want to be here with you.

Sam: I never wanted anyone the way I wanted you. The way I still want you in spite of everything.

Amanda: It's over. All that's over. Mm.

Sam: What--what's the matter?

Amanda: Nothing. You're just not usually like this.

Sam: Well... don't worry about it.

Amanda: Why?

Sam: I don't think I can do this anymore.

Amanda: Do what? I don't understand.

Sam: Touch you. Ok?

Paulina: Come on, you got to get out of here before Jamie comes back.

Derek: Hey, I don't care what Jamie Frame thinks.

Paulina: Well, I do.

Derek: Well, then you're making one hell of a mistake.

Paulina: Why? Why don't you like him?

Derek: Because he never gave a break to anybody who wasn't born as rich as he was.

Paulina: No, that's not true. He wasn't born rich. He told me.

[Jamie talking indistinctly] Come on, come on.

Derek: All right.

Paulina: Move.

Derek: Ok.

Mitch: ...To try and locate them. I mean, it's not like we had anything to give them so they could go with anything.

Jamie: Mitch, do you think you're blowing this out of proportion?

Mitch: Look, I just don't like the idea of Rachel being out alone in the desert with Ken Jordan.

Jamie: Well, if Jordan's a con artist, he's one with a lot of guts. I mean the guy--he comes here to dinner. He practically made himself a friend of the family.

Mitch: I know, I know. You know that he sold Mac the red swan?

Jamie: No.

Mitch: Well, he did. At least, that's what he said.

Jamie: And that arrived at the day the will was read.

Mitch: Yes, the day that your mother became a very rich woman.

Jamie: But what does that matter? I mean, there's no way that Ken can benefit from my mother's wealth.

Mitch: I hope not... for her sake.

Ken: Can we please put out the lantern?

Rachel: I'm reading.

Ken: Reading?

Rachel: I always read before I go to bed.

Ken: Ok. Ok, read if you have to read.

Rachel: Well, what's wrong now?

Ken: Oh, nothing. I'm just not used to having a roommate, I guess.

Rachel: You're the one who wanted to bring just one tent.

Ken: Yes, Rachel, I know.

Rachel: Are you angry with me or something?

Ken: Who said I was angry?

Rachel: Well, I don't know, you just always are. I don't understand you at all.

Ken: Well, maybe you will... out here.

Lucas: I'm 19 years old. I got about 12 cents in my pocket. I haven't been eating regularly. Uh, some guy comes up to me-- well dressed guy. He says--wants me to steal something for him for $200.

Stacey: So, you say ok?

Lucas: I would've made a move on the Mona Lisa at that point for 200 bucks.

Stacey: What was this, a painting?

Lucas: Yeah.

Stacey: From where?

Lucas: From a big house on lakeshore drive. They were loaded. Probably went to their broker-- their insurance brokers and got--made money on the deal.

Stacey: Yeah, well, that doesn't make it right, Lucas.

Lucas: Look, do me a favor. Don't give me a morality lecture here. I'm here because I want to do the right thing.

Stacey: Ok. So you get away with it the first time.

Lucas: Yeah, but I realized I had something of a talent.

Stacey: For stealing.

Lucas: No, for management. I never did another break-in.

Stacey: So, you just arranged things?

Lucas: Right.

Stacey: For whom?

Lucas: I didn't know at that point. I didn't want to know. I figured the less I knew, the healthier I would be. And I was spending a lot of time trying to convince myself that I wasn't doing what I was doing--that I was clean.

Stacey: Ok. So you made some money.

Lucas: Enough to start Lucas Enterprises.

Stacey: Which is very successful.

Lucas: From day one.

Stacey: So, why didn't you get out from under those guys?

Lucas: Because by then I knew I was working for the cartel, and they never tired to remind me that whatever I had built was on their support. And they were right. They owned me.

Stacey: So you just kept doing whatever it was that they asked you.

Lucas: But I never spent the money after that. It's in Switzerland in a numbered account. But, yes, I continued to do what they wanted.

Stacey: Until the night that you shot Griffen Sanders.

Lucas: That's right.

Stacey: What made you do it?

Lucas: It came to me like a revelation. If Michael Hudson died, I was going to die with him.

Stacey: Heck of a revelation.

Lucas: No, no. The revelation was I didn't want to. Die, that is.

Stacey: Was this something new?

Lucas: Yes, something very new. After I lost Fanny and the baby, I didn't care if I lived or died. I know you lost a daughter, too. So you can understand what it can do to somebody.

Amanda: You know, Sam, if you don't want to stay here, we can go back to Mom's house.

Sam: No.

Amanda: Is this all because Evan called?

Sam: No.

Amanda: You said you didn't want to touch me and then you hardly spoke to me over dinner. I'm going to make everything up to you, Sam. You just have to give me some time. Don't give up on us.

Sam: That's the thing about you. I walked out. But I just couldn't stay away.

Amanda: I'm glad.

Sam: Don't be.

Amanda: I never stopped loving you. I could never love anybody like I love you. I want us to be the way we were.

Sam: Then maybe this time we'll have to do it my way.

Derek: Lucas.

Lucas: Hello, Derek.

Derek: Where's Stacey?

Lucas: She's on the telephone, talking to the D.A.'s office

Derek: About you?

Lucas: I think so.

Derek: Just remember something, Lucas. No matter how hard Stacey works to get you off, you're not putting anything over on her. She's smart. She sees right through you.

Lucas: I think Stacey and I have come to a new understanding.

Derek: Yeah, how do you figure that?

Lucas: She lost a child, too.

Derek: Ok, now you listen to me. Stacey's daughter died. And you walked away from yours because somebody paid you to--

Lucas: Don't you ever--

Derek: Don't you ever give me that "don't you ever" crap. Every time you get into a jam, you pull out Fanny and your child. But don't you use Stacey's baby to get to her.

Lucas: I left them because I thought I was nothing. I thought you might understand that.

Derek: For starters, Lucas, I understand everything about you. And secondly, I think I'm a lot more than nothing. And you'd better remember that. Because if I hear anything about you giving any problems to Stacey, if you hurt her in any way, you're going to find that I'm not a very forgiving type.

Stacey: Hey, Derek. You're back.

Derek: Yeah.

Lucas: Uh, we were just discussing you. Derek's very devoted. You're very lucky.

Stacey: Are you leaving?

Lucas: Yes. Enjoy the rest of the evening. We'll talk in the morning. Derek.

Derek: Luke.

Stacey: You know, I almost feel a little bit sorry for him.

Derek: Don't. Don't ever feel sorry for him.

Stacey: He's right. I am lucky. I had a family and love. And now I've got you.

Derek: Yeah, well, you had your problems.

Stacey: I had it a lot easier than you did, or Lucas, for that matter. And yeah, I did have my problems, but I always had something to fall back on. I had something to get me through. Lucas had to grab whatever he could get, which wasn't much.

Derek: Lucas had choices. He didn't have to do the things that he did.

Stacey: Derek, not everybody is like you.

Derek: Me?

Stacey: Ethical and honest and good.

Derek: Oh, no, I don't know about that.

Stacey: You are. You had nothing when you grew up. You build your own set of standards and values and you live by them. I think you're a prince of a guy.

Derek: Thanks.

Stacey: So, where did you go, just a little while ago?

Derek: I went to see a friend who needed my help.

Stacey: See what I mean? You are a prince of a guy.

Derek: Yeah. That's me, all right.

Evan: I got to tell you, I'm really surprised the way Amanda fired you.

Vicky: You're the only one.

Evan: It really wasn't a smart move on her part.

Vicky: It wasn't?

Evan: No, as I recall, you have a very impressive block of Cory stock.

Vicky: Do you know I had forgotten all about that?

Evan: Well, I don't see why.

Vicky: Oh, Mr. Bates, you might have turned this whole evening around for me.

Evan: Hold on a minute here.

Vicky: Now, if I can get Steven's stock as well and have the say over that, then--

Evan: Slow down.

Vicky: What are you talking about? You just came up with a brilliant idea. I have the stock. You have the know-how--

Evan: Hold on a minute, hold on a minute.

Vicky: What?

Evan: Count me out. I don't want anything to do with any more games, ok?

Vicky: Where are you going?

Evan: I have something I have to do.

Vicky: Well, what is it? Where are you going?

Evan: I will call you tomorrow.

Vicky: Evan, don't leave me in the lurch.

Evan: I'm not leaving you in a lurch.

It's just that if I have to go to Iris or Rachel, I will. And I'll tell him that I think Amanda acted too hastily and that you should be rehired. And if I had to, I would even go to Amanda.

Vicky: You would do that for me?

Evan: Yes, I would.

Vicky: Oh, Evan, you are such a good guy.

Evan: No, never again. Never.

Vicky: Bye.

Amanda: Sam?

Sam: Hmm.

Amanda: What was that that you said before about doing things your way?

Sam: Do you want to save this marriage?

Amanda: You know that I do.

Sam: You see, I think what happened to us...

Amanda: You mean Evan?

Sam: Yeah, Evan. I think that happened because there was too much pressure on the both of us.

Amanda: I think so, too--

Sam: You see, we're just lucky that you didn't sleep with him. You didn't have an affair with him. You came to your senses just in the nick of time. So, I think what we need to do is simplify our lives.

Amanda: What do you mean?

Sam: I mean, we just made it by a hair. And now we realize just what we mean to each other.

Amanda: Do you know how much you mean to me?

Sam: Yeah, I know exactly what I mean to you. And that's why I want you to lean on me. I want us to be so close. See, it'll just be the two of us. When you need someone, I'm there. When I need you, you're there. The things you would tell your mother or a friend, you tell me. See, we have to learn to be everything to one another again. And I mean everything. It's the only way.

Amanda: That's what I want.

Sam: Promise?

Amanda: Promise? Yes, I promise.

Sam: That's good. You see in "Othello," when he says, "I loved not wisely but too well,"--I always thought that was garbage. You see, he loved himself more than he loved her. And that was the problem.

Amanda: Don't you want to make love?

Sam: No, I need some time to think. But starting tomorrow, we are going to be closer than any two people you have ever seen. Otherwise, I don't think we have a chance.

Amanda: You're so--

Sam: What?

Amanda: I don't know. Detached or something. You usually get angry when I talk about Evan.

Sam: I told you. I've changed.

Amanda: Where are you going?

Sam: To the gallery.

Amanda: Why?

Sam: The show in Minneapolis. That stuff has to be packed by 9:00 tomorrow morning. I guess I'll go do that now.

Amanda: How are you going to get in?

Sam: Caroline gave me a key.

Amanda: Sam, why are you doing this now?

Sam: I told you. I need time to think. Don't wait up.

Jamie: So, why don't you tell me some more about yourself. It'll take my mind off of things.

Paulina: You're worried about your Mom?

Jamie: Yeah, I am. My Mom and Mac were more in love than any two people I've ever known. She's been having a terrible time since Mac died.

Paulina: I'm sorry.

Jamie: And then she met this guy, and we all thought it was great at first-Jordan. But now it seems that Mitch thinks that he's really not a true friend.

Paulina: What are you going to do?

Jamie: Well, Mitch is talking to the Police right now. I'm going to stay up and wait till I find out if they want to talk to me.

Paulina: The--the Police might come here?

Jamie: They might.

[Doorbell rings] Listen, I appreciate you're hanging out with me.

Paulina: I think I heard Steven.

Jamie: I didn't.

Paulina: Well, I--I'm going to go check on him anyway.

Jamie: Mitch, what'd you find out?

Mitch: Well, they took a flight from here to Phoenix, and then they booked a private helicopter from there.

Jamie: What do the Police say?

Mitch: Well, there's really nothing that they can do. As far as they're concerned, there's been no evidence of any wrongdoing.

Jamie: The same as the Arizona authorities.

Mitch: Yeah, I know.

Jamie: So, there's just your feeling?

Mitch: Well, there's my feeling, there are coincidences, not to mention Mrs. Johnson.

Jamie: But, Mitch, the thing is Jordan has never been anything but good to Mom. Look, if we're going to pursue this, there's something that I have to know.

Mitch: And what's that?

Jamie: Are you worried about Mom or are you just jealous of the position that Ken has in her life?

Mitch: All I know is I'm not going to rest easy until we hear from Rachel.

Rachel: Ken?

Ken: What?

Rachel: Oh, not asleep?

Ken: No such luck.

Rachel: Um, well, when do we have to get up in the morning?

Ken: Daybreak.

Rachel: Daybreak?

Ken: We have to use all the light we can get.

Rachel: Ken?

Ken: Rachel, if you want to read, read, but let's not talk, ok? I got a very important mission I need to start tomorrow, and I need to have a good night's sleep. You should get a good night's sleep, too. You're going to need it.

Rachel: Ok. Umm, Ken? Ken, can I--can I move the-- forget it.
