John: Well, I'll be damned.

Grant: Hello, Doc.

John: Don't give me that. What gives with you?

Grant: You're angry, aren't you?

John: You disappeared on us.

Grant: Well, I'm back now. So let's just all relax, all right?

John: Where did you go?

Grant: I had to do some thinking.

John: You're ok?

Grant: I want you to find a way to get me well.

Josie: I was getting worried about you.

Sharlene: Josie, you're not going to believe what happened to me.

Josie: You said you'd be here an hour ago.

Sharlene: Honey, I ran out of gas on the highway.

Josie: You're kidding.

Sharlene: No, and I just filled the car the other day.

Josie: Well, didn't you notice it was low?

Sharlene: No, I didn't. I just thought that I--never mind. I don't want to think about that. Hi, you.

Josie: Hi. Well, why don't you sit down and I'll get you some lemonade?

Sharlene: Oh, that'd be wonderful. That'd be just great.

Josie: So, what did you want to talk to me about?

Sharlene: You know, I see you've moved some things around in the apartment.

Josie: Yeah. Here you go.

Sharlene: Thank you. Mm.

Josie: I'm waiting.

Sharlene: Oh. Did you do something to your hair?

Josie: Would you please--would you just come out with it?

Sharlene: Josie, what would you say if I told you John and I were going to have a baby?

Ada: Traipsing all over the desert.

Matt: Where do you want her, Jamie?

Jamie: On the couch.

Rachel: I'm not a stack of potatoes, fellows.

Matthew: Just take it easy.

Paulina: Here, let me get you another pillow.

Rachel: Thank you, Paulina.

Ada: Climbing around on rocks.

Rachel: It's nice to see you, too, Mom. Ow!

Jamie: It's your ribs again, Mom.

Rachel: Yeah, I think I bruised them.

Ada: You are as white as a sheet. I thought you were supposed--

Rachel: I'm fine.

Ada: ...To get a tan on a desert.

Matt: Mom, you look pale, all right? Take it easy.

Ada: Jamie, should I get her something?

Rachel: You could talk to me, Mom. I'm right here. I'll talk to you.

Ada: Well, fruit juice, tea, water?

Rachel: I've developed quite a taste for water since being in the desert.

Ada: Coming up.

Rachel: Cass?

Cass: Yeah, right here. Excuse me, Jamie.

Rachel: I want you to find out about Ken.

Cass: Rachel--

Rachel: Please don't waste any more time on this.

Jamie: I think we should just let Ken take care of himself.

Rachel: Excuse me?

Jamie: Look, the man has been nothing but trouble. Please, just forget about Ken Jordan completely.

Ken: [Muttering]

Jim: What is it, Ken? What do you want?

Ken: Rachel.

Rachel: You don't know what you're talking about, Jamie.

Jamie: Matt, maybe you and Paulina could tell grandma to forget the water and brew up a pot of tea.

Matt: Yeah, sure.

Rachel: It's not like you to be so sure about something you know nothing about.

Jamie: Cass and Frankie filled me in at the airport.

Rachel: Cass and Frankie are operating on hypothesis. You are, you know.

Jamie: Look at the way he is insinuating himself into your life.

Rachel: You make it sound like a very sinister plot.

Cass: The man is definitely not what he seems.

Jamie: He keeps revising lies, and you keep buying them.

Rachel: No, I don't.

Frankie: I know how you must feel, Mrs. Cory.

Rachel: No, you don't, Frankie. I'm sorry. But you're wrong about Ken.

Jamie: Mom, he fought with Mac the night before he died. That's not supposition.

Rachel: It is until it's proved.

Cass: Frankie found witnesses.

Frankie: And then there's that picture of him and Mac.

Rachel: You don't know that that's him in the picture.

Jamie: Well, why would he have made copies then?

Cass: He pretended he was a total stranger when there were all these links to you.

Jamie: All those coincidences.

Rachel: Yes, there were. There were a lot of coincidences. But he did save my life.

Frankie: The man has a real questionable past.

Cass: Half a past. The other half doesn't even exist.

Jamie: Mom, he set out to gain your trust, and he did.

Rachel: Yes, he did.

Jamie: He lured you into the desert on a phony dig.

Rachel: It was anything but a phony dig.

Jamie: Where he almost got you killed.

Rachel: He risked his life for me, Jamie. Not once--twice. I was out there. He could have harmed me any time. But here I am. I'm safe and sound.

Jamie: Why isn't he with you now?

Rachel: Because we couldn't find him. Because Cass was very insistent that I come back with them.

Jamie: He left you. You were injured, and you were at the mercy of those goons of his.

Rachel: He was trying to protect me from those guys, Jamie. And he is--something's happened to him, and we have to find him.

Cass: Rachel, there is one other thing that I haven't told you yet.

Rachel: What?

Cass: Did Jordan ever mention the note that was inside the red swan?

Rachel: What note?

Cass: The one Mac left for you.

Josie: Oh, mama! I am so happy for you--

Sharlene: Now Josie, wait a minute.

Josie: You sit down.

Sharlene: Josie, now, wait, honey--

Josie: How far along are you? I can't believe it. I'm going to have a little brother or a little sister.

Sharlene: Josie, wait. I am not pregnant yet.

Josie: Oh, I thought--

Sharlene: I'm sorry, honey. What I meant to say was that John and I are talking about trying.

Josie: Well, that's exciting.

Sharlene: So, anyway, that's my news.

Josie: Well, I think it's great.

Sharlene: You do?

Josie: Yes.

Sharlene: You do? You don't think that we're too old for this stuff?

Josie: No!

Sharlene: No?

Josie: No.

Sharlene: Well, I know I'm old enough to have a daughter who's getting married.

Josie: What?

Sharlene: I saw the article in the newspaper about you and this actor.

Josie: Oh, Brad Stone. Some hunk, huh?

Sharlene: Matthew must be very upset.

Josie: Well, Matthew doesn't have a sense of humor about things like that.

Sharlene: Do you blame him?

Josie: It's just a P.R. thing.

Sharlene: About the woman he loves marrying another man.

Josie: Well, he knows it meant nothing. Come on, I do one shoot with the guy and we're engaged?

Sharlene: Josie, Matthew is a very sensitive person.

Josie: Very jealous is what he is.

Sharlene: And is that so bad?

Josie: Well, you know, it's not a whole lot of fun.

Sharlene: This career of yours must be very difficult for him.

Josie: Well, mama, you know, that's not really my problem.

Sharlene: It is if you want to keep him. Do you?

Josie: Yes. Of course I do.

Sharlene: You don't sound too sure.

Josie: Well, I am. I just...

Sharlene: You just what?

Josie: Sometimes I--I feel really confined.

Sharlene: Confined?

Josie: Well, maybe that's not the right word. I just... oh, I feel like I just need some more freedom.

Sharlene: To do what?

Josie: To live. To do things.

Sharlene: Josie, are you interested in this actor? This--this Brad?

Josie: No. I'm not interested in Brad. Although I think he may be interested in me.

Sharlene: And you like that.

Josie: I like the fact that he thinks I'm attractive. Is that a crime?

Sharlene: Lucas put you up to this, didn't he?

Josie: What are you talking about?

Sharlene: Flirting. Throwing yourself at men.

Josie: What?

Sharlene: Josie, I tried to warn you about this. I tried to warn you, but you would not listen. And now it may be too late. I have to go.

Josie: You're wrong, mama. You are so wrong. It's not what you think.

[Phone ringing]

Josie: Hello. Yes, this is she. What?

Grant: You're going to help me or not?

John: You're asking the wrong man.

Grant: Whoa, whoa, doc--

John: I got rounds to make.

Grant: But why are you bailing out on--

John: I'm not.

Grant: But why are you--

John: I had a meeting with Dr. Rutherford this morning.

Grant: And?

John: I'm off your case.

Grant: Why?

John: Because I told you the truth about your condition. Dr. Rutherford seems to think that that's why you left the hospital without being released.

Grant: But so what? I'm back.

John: I had no way of knowing if you would ever come back. And to be perfectly frank, neither did she. She had to blame somebody.

Grant: Oh, what is the big deal anyway?

John: The big deal is you jeopardized your condition.

Grant: How? I mean, I feel fine. I feel ok.

John: Terrific.

Grant: Wait, doc--doc. Listen, I... I caused you a lot of trouble, didn't I?

John: Yeah. As a matter of fact, you did.

Grant: Why did she take you off the case?

John: If you need anything, call Dr. Segal.

Grant: No, wait. Don't leave. Don't leave. I'm... I'd like the hospital administrator, please. Uh-huh. Yeah, this is Grant Harrison. Ah, yes, Dr. Rutherford? Yeah, thanks. I am back, and I'm fine. Listen, I would like to discuss something with you. No, it's very important. I'd like--I would like you to come down here right away. Thank you.

John: Well, well, well. You call and Elaine snaps to. I like that. That's--that's very impressive.

Grant: You know something, doc? I am not very... well, I haven't had very much practice at making apologies. But I--well, if I worried you, I'm very sorry.

John: You worried a lot of people.

Grant: Well, there were just a lot of things that I had to sort out.

John: What happened?

Grant: What do you mean, what happened?

John: To the ice man. You seem very different-- optimistic.

Grant: I don't know what you're talking about.

John: Did something happen last night? It did, didn't it? All right, who is she?

Grant: Who? Who is who?

John: You're under oath, congressman.

Grant: Listen, this country still has a fifth amendment, and I'm not about to incriminate myself.

John: Oh, well let me do it for you.

Elaine: Welcome back, congressman.

John: Well, I can't say that I'm glad to be back, Elaine.

Elaine: I thought you were off this case, Dr. Hudson.

Grant: Now, believe me, I am to blame. I am to blame for everything.

Elaine: No, Dr. Hudson was obviously becoming too involved in this case.

Grant: No, seriously, Elaine. I--well ever since I've been here, I have been nothing-- nothing but trouble.

Elaine: It's been a difficult situation for you.

Grant: Well, and all the people that have been around me-I mean, I can see how it's affected them. I can see you and Dr. Hudson and...

Elaine: You don't have to worry about me.

Grant: I don't want to worry about anybody, especially myself, so that's exactly why I want Dr. Hudson back on my--on my case.

Elaine: I'm afraid I can't do that, congressman.

Grant: Oh, of course you can.

Elaine: Hospital discipline must be maintained. Now, surely you can understand that.

Grant: You mean to tell me that a--the patient's request means absolutely nothing?

Elaine: I'm sorry, but I must remain firm on this.

Grant: Ok. Well, you know, I have tried to be very, very nice about this. But I guess I'll just have to treat it the hard way. As of tonight, I want Dr. Hudson back on my case. And if he's not, I'm checking into a new hospital.

Elaine: A new hospital?

Grant: And I think the fallout from that won't be so good. The contributors will ask questions. I think the insurance people might not quite understand. You know what I mean?

Elaine: Very well.

Grant: So he's back, huh?

Elaine: Against my better judgment, yes.

Grant: Good. I knew that you would see it in a very civilized manner.

Elaine: But if there's one more incident...

Grant: You know something, Elaine? One of these days, you are going to realize this guy is one of the best guys that you have got in this place. You know? Anyway, thank you. Thank you very, very much for coming. It's so nice to see you, Elaine. I will see you soon. Bye.

John: [Laughs] No wonder your legislation passes.

Grant: It's all right, isn't it? Friends?

John: Friends. I've got to meet this woman of yours.

Grant: Never mind about her. You saved my life.

John: I wish it were that simple.

[Doorbell rings]

Felicia: I know you're busy. This won't take long. I just have to talk to you.

Lucas: What do you want to talk about?

Felicia: Is Iris around?

Lucas: No, she won't be back for a while.

Felicia: Good. I just don't want her to misunderstand. I want to talk about your legal problems.

Lucas: That's a boring subject, Fanny.

Felicia: This congressman--did you find a way to change his mind?

Lucas: No, Iris tried, but he won't budge.

Felicia: Even if you turn state's evidence?

Lucas: Ah, see, that's what Harrison wants. He wants me to sing to his sub-committee and then he wants to throw the book at me. Ah, maybe it's what I deserve.

Felicia: No. It's not what you deserve. What, he wouldn't listen to anything Iris had to say?

Lucas: No. She went in there and threw her weight around--you know, Cory Publishing?

Felicia: And it didn't work.

Lucas: Not with this guy, no.

Felicia: It's too bad. If he only knew you the way I do, huh?

Lucas: Ah, keep talking. I like the way that sounds.

Felicia: You know, you can joke about this, but it is true.

Lucas: You're the best, Fanny.

Felicia: You know, when you said you didn't want to see me anymore...

Lucas: Taking care of you.

Felicia: Not this way, Luke. You're my first love. I mean, I'll always be tied to you. That is what I want.

Lucas: Fanny, I'll be ok. I'll get through this thing.

Felicia: I know. Of course you will. Listen, I really--I have to go, ok?

Lucas: We'll talk soon.

Felicia: Yeah. Ok.

Lucas: Bye.

Cass: I didn't tell you because I'd hoped I wouldn't have to.

Rachel: A note?

Cass: Yes.

Rachel: To me?

Cass: Yes, supposedly from Mac. There was a compartment in the red swan--

Rachel: I know about that compartment. It was empty.

Cass: It didn't start out that way.

Rachel: What did the note say?

Cass: It directed you to Ken Jordan.

Rachel: I don't believe this.

Cass: It hasn't been authenticated yet, but--

Rachel: You found this note?

Frankie: No, he didn't. Mitch did.

Rachel: What?

Frankie: He found it the day he brought you the red swan.

Rachel: No, he didn't. I was with him that night.

Jamie: He found the note before he talked to you, Mom. He decided to keep it from you.

Rachel: Why?

Jamie: He wasn't sure that it was really from Mac, and he wanted to know more about Ken Jordan.

Rachel: He kept it from me.

Jamie: Mom, he was doing what he thought was the right thing.

Rachel: I know what he was doing. It's what you're all doing. You're making my decisions for me, and it's got to stop.

Jamie: Mom--

Rachel: It has to stop. Ow. I'm going upstairs to clean up and lie down. Somebody is to call Mitch and get him over here as soon as possible to talk to me. Now that is my decision. Is that very clear?

Jamie: What do we do?

Cass: I think that's very clear.

Lucas: [Sighs]

[Doorbell rings]

Josie: I probably should have called, but it was an impulse.

Lucas: I like your impulses. Come on in.

Josie: Thanks. Hey, these are great.

Lucas: Ah, they need a lot of work. Come on, sit down.

Josie: Ok.

Lucas: So, what's on your mind?

Josie: In a word, momentum.

Lucas: Momentum.

Josie: Let's face it, Lucas. I've only got one chance to be a top model, and I don't want to let it slip through my fingers.

Lucas: I'm not going to let you let it.

Josie: I'm beginning to realize it's going to take a lot more than luck to make this work.

Lucas: What are you talking about?

Josie: Brad Stone.

Lucas: Oh, your fiance.

Josie: That phony romance you worked out, that was--that was brilliant.

Lucas: Oh, now you like the idea, huh?

Josie: I got a little phone call right before I came over here.

Lucas: Oh, yeah?

Josie: You're not going to believe this, Lucas, but I have a screen test for his new movie.

Lucas: Josie, that's terrific.

Josie: It's all because of what you did.

Lucas: Don't give me the credit. Obviously Brad was very impressed with you.

Josie: That's why I was thinking that--that maybe...

Lucas: What?

Josie: I think we should work together again.

Lucas: Another layout?

Josie: Yeah, maybe a honeymoon sequence. You know, sort of a sequel.

Lucas: Yeah, yeah, ok. Vacation... Hawaii... hot bathing suits, flashy color.

Josie: Perfect.

Lucas: All right, we'll do it. We'll do it.

Josie: Maybe, maybe, maybe it could even work into the swimsuit edition.

Lucas: That's great. You're right on the money, Josie. You know, what I like about it is that you thought of it. It's your initiative. That's good.

Josie: Well, you said you always like things like that.

Lucas: Look, I not only like it, it's the only way to get to the top. You've got to push for what you believe in.

Josie: So when do we do it?

Lucas: I don't know...

Josie: What?

Lucas: First, I got to get a few things straight.

Josie: Such as?

Lucas: Is your personal life going to interfere with our plans for you?

Josie: You mean Matthew?

Lucas: Yeah. I'm not sure that he's going to get on your side.

Josie: Well, he tries, Lucas.

Lucas: Josie, he doesn't exactly strike me as the type to be contented with being the wind beneath your wings.

Josie: He'll back me 100%, I promise.

Lucas: You sure about this?

Josie: I'm ready.

Lucas: Ok. I'll do it.

Jamie: Thanks for driving me here. I wanted to tell you a little bit about me away from the house.

Paulina: Sure. I understand.

Jamie: Oh, and I wanted to give you these.

Paulina: The circus?

Jamie: The hospital gave them to their employees. You think Steven is old enough?

Paulina: Oh, sure he is. Your son is very precocious.

Jamie: You do know what a dad likes to hear.

Paulina: But how come you're not going?

Jamie: I think that may be I should stay with my Mom.

Paulina: Oh, no. Come on. I mean, knowing your Mom, I bet she'd love the idea of Steven being on his Dad's lap when he sees his first clown.

Jamie: You're right. I'll pick up an extra ticket.

Paulina: Great. So Steven and I will see you when you get home.

Jamie: Good.

Paulina: Good.

Jamie: Bye-bye.

Paulina: Bye-bye.

John: I don't know. I would if I were you. Hey, Jamie.

Jamie: Hey, John.

John: What are you doing here today? I thought you had a day off.

Jamie: I just felt I should stay busy.

John: How's your Mom?

Jamie: She's fine, thanks. Just needs some rest.

John: Good.

Jamie: How're you doing?

John: Pretty good. I guess you heard about Grant Harrison.

Jamie: That he is back, you mean?

John: Yeah, and he's betting that he's going to outlive us all.

Jamie: What brought on that change?

John: Well, apparently he met a woman last night--the woman.

Jamie: One night?

John: With low hemoglobin.

Jamie: I'm impressed.

John: Yeah. He's cooperative and upbeat. Even had me reinstated on his case, overriding Elaine Rutherford, who took me off.

Jamie: Must be one hell of a woman.

John: Speaking of a hell of a woman, hi.

Sharlene: Hi. John, I needed to speak to you alone. Jamie, I'm sorry.

Jamie: No problem. I've got a patient to see. You take care.

John: So long.

Jamie: Bye-bye.

John: What's wrong?

Sharlene: John, I don't know what happened. I did it again. I don't know when I'm going to learn.

John: Will you just calm down and tell me what happened?

Sharlene: I blew it again with Josie.

John: How?

Sharlene: I told her that I'd seen the picture of her with that guy, and...

John: Yes?

Sharlene: And then I got started on Lucas and her life and his influence on her. And then I--I couldn't stop. I got started, and I couldn't shut my big mouth.

John: Listen, maybe it's not as bad as you thought.

Sharlene: Yes, John, it is bad. I'm driving her away from me. I'm driving her straight to Lucas. John, she's ruining her life. Don't you see it?

[Gun cocking]

Ken: I've been waiting for you.

Rachel: Why?

Ken: Come with me.

Rachel: Where?

Ken: Away.

Rachel: I'm afraid.

Ken: Don't be afraid, Rachel. Never afraid.

Ken: Rachel.

Ken: Rachel

Rachel: What?

[Knocking on door]

Matt: Mom? Mitch is here to see you.

Rachel: Yes, come in.

Mitch: I hear you had a rough time.

Rachel: Yes, I did.

Mitch: Are you ok? Has Jamie checked you out?

Rachel: I'm fine.

Mitch: I know why you want to see me.

Rachel: Do you

Mitch: Cass told me.

Rachel: I'm having a difficult time with this, Mitch.

Mitch: I can see that.

Rachel: The red swan was stolen, and we searched for it together.

Mitch: Yes. I know that. I happen to remember.

Rachel: And you found it. You, of all people, seemed to understand how important it was to me.

Mitch: Yes, I did. I still do understand.

Rachel: I told you... that it was some sort of connection with Mac. That I thought that there was some message or something. That was my hope. That's what kept me going.

Mitch: I know that.

Rachel: And through all of it I became dependent on you. I--I trusted you completely.

Mitch: And now?

Rachel: And now, after all that time, to find out that you found everything I was looking for, and you kept it from me-- that's the truth, isn't it?

Mitch: Yes, yes. That's the truth. But will you let me explain?

Rachel: What is there to explain? How could you possibly do that to me?

Mitch: Look, I wanted to check some things out. I didn't want to see you get hurt.

Rachel: Oh, that's no excuse for keeping it from me.

Mitch: Rachel, you were very vulnerable.

Rachel: Mac wanted me to make contact with Ken, and you stopped that.

Mitch: Yes, yes. Maybe I did stop it. This business about the note, it was very strange, and it just didn't seem like Mac.

Rachel: That was my call, Mitch, my call.

Mitch: Well, I'm sorry. I wanted to check out Ken Jordan.

Rachel: Mac wanted me to do something, and you kept me from doing it.

Mitch: I can see that you think that I made a mistake. Look, what I did, checking out Ken Jordan, it's what I thought that Mac would do.

Rachel: You are not Mac.

Mitch: I'm sorry.

Rachel: Not as sorry as I am.

Mitch: Look, I think I will just leave here before we say some things that we shouldn't be saying to each other.

Sharlene: She's so full of herself. She thinks he knows everything. You know, every time I look at her she reminds me - how he flirted with her, how much she liked it.

John: Sharlene, listen--

Sharlene: And how she loves all the attention, John.

John: Sharlene listen, I think you're blowing this whole thing way out of proportion. I think you're probably seeing things here that just aren't there.

Sharlene: Oh, am I?

John: Josie is very much in love with Matthew. You know that. She's a very sensible and sensitive young woman. She's going to be fine. Of course she's going to make mistakes along the way. I think that she's open enough to talk about them. And she's lucky enough to have people who will listen, people who love her.

Sharlene: Why do I keep doing this to myself?

John: I don't know. I worry about you.

Sharlene: No, no, no, no. I don't want you worrying, John.

John: You're very tired lately, and you're moody. Are you still on your diet?

Sharlene: For the hypoglycemia? Of course I am.

John: Then you're working too hard.

Sharlene: Now, John, let's please not start on that, all right?

John: I want you to quit this job.

Sharlene: No.

John: Sharlene, you're overtired. You're under too much pressure.

Sharlene: John, I'm not tired, and I like the pressure.

John: You can't handle the smallest amount of stress.

Sharlene: I can handle stress. Just not today.

John: Why? What's different about today?

Sharlene: John, you can't make me quit my job. I have--I have to work there.

John: Why?

Sharlene: Because...

John: Because why?

Sharlene: We need the money.

John: We can manage without it.

Sharlene: No, I need to have something to do when you're not home.

John: Sharlene, what you need to do is to rest. You need to take some time for yourself.

Sharlene: Please, John. I can't. Please don't make me quit my job.

[Knock at door]

Grant: Come in.

Felicia: Hello, congressman. I'm your private duty nurse.

Grant: I didn't order a private duty nurse.

Felicia: Really? Oh, there must be some mix-up then.

Grant: I left strict instructions as to who I would see, and talk show hosts were not on the list.

Felicia: Ok. So you know who I am.

Grant: That uniform is really not your style, Ms. Gallant.

Felicia: No, no, please. Wait a minute. Just give me 3 minutes. That's all I ask--3 minutes.

Grant: Ok. Now, what can I do for you, Ms. Gallant?

Felicia: Well, I've been wanting to do a story on politics. I'm very interested in political official--officials who, well, you know... they float lies in the press to cover up the truth.

Grant: Any examples of this?

Felicia: Well, I mean, V.I.Ps in hospitals. People do speculate on them.

Grant: Just get to the point, Ms. Gallant.

Felicia: Well, I just wonder what your constituents would say about all of this. I mean, you being in here--

Grant: I'm not hiding. I'm in here for a checkup, is all.

Felicia: Oh, right. A check up, right.

Grant: And I'm in here for, well, a long rest and a long- deserved vacation.

Felicia: Great. That's exactly what I'll put over the air.

Grant: And you put anything else and I'll deny every word of it.

Felicia: Huh. This really isn't working, is it?

Grant: And your time is rapidly running out.

Felicia: Lucas said that it would take a lot more than a little blackmail.

Grant: Lucas? You're working for that--

Felicia: I want you to give him a chance. Let him turn state's evidence. Plea bargain. He will give you the names, the dates, anything you need to put the cartel out of business. What do you say?

Grant: You know, I got to hand it that to Lucas--sending you here. He's a crafty little devil.

Felicia: He's not a devil. He's just had a lot of bad breaks.

Grant: Oh, yeah. Now, where have I heard that before?

Felicia: He has no idea that I'm even here.

Grant: Ha, right. Right. Yeah, I'm sure he doesn't.

Felicia: That is the truth, congressman. Or is it that you're just so interested in furthering your name, you can't even hear the truth anymore?

Grant: Oh, touche.

Felicia: What's it going to be? I'm waiting for an answer.

Grant: Why are you so interested in a man like Lucas?

Felicia: I knew him as a kid, before, well, life made him do certain things.

Grant: You know, Lucas is such a lucky man.

Felicia: He will be if you give him a break. That's all that I'm asking you to do. Just a little break. Please.

Grant: All right, I will give it my serious consideration.

Felicia: Sorry. You're going to have to do a whole lot better than that.

Grant: Oh, am I?

Felicia: Yeah. I want you to give him a second chance.

Grant: You know... you know, it's funny, I've been thinking a lot lately about something,

Felicia: Do something impulsive. Do something wild and crazy. Something that is not politically astute.

Grant: Ok. Ok, ok. You win.

Felicia: Really? You know, I thought that you'd really give me a much harder time.

Grant: Well, you just caught me on a good day, that's all.

Felicia: Great. Well, this is a great day for me, too. Thank you.

Grant: You know, it's funny what you say about me being wild and impulsive and...

Felicia: Funny how?

Grant: Well, somebody I just met said the same thing about me.

Felicia: It's good advice, really.

[Watch alarm beeps] I told you I would only take 3 minutes.

Grant: And a very interesting 3 minutes it was.

Felicia: You're not going to regret this, I promise you.

Grant: I better not. Hm.

Felicia: Oh, and congressman?

Grant: Mm-hmm?

Felicia: Really, I do want you to have a wonderful vacation.

Grant: Thank you very much, Nurse Gallant.

Felicia: Oh, my pleasure.

Grant: Yeah, right. Ted! Hey, Ted! Where the hell is everybody around here? Nur--

Nurse: Can I help you?

Grant: Where's my aide Ted?

Nurse: I don't know--

Grant: No, no, no, where's Dr. Hudson?

Nurse: Oh, I just saw him going into the staff lounge.

Grant: Good, good, you--wait a minute. Did you do something to your hair? Is that a new hairdo? It's very becoming. It's nice. Excuse me.

Sharlene: I need to keep my job, John.

John: Fine.

Sharlene: I wouldn't ask you to quit your job. Besides, with the hours you're keeping, I--

John: Sharlene, I said fine.

Sharlene: You did?

John: I'm not going to force you to do something that you don't want to do.

Sharlene: It's just that this is--this is very important to me--

John: You don't have to say any more.

Sharlene: I love you.

John: I love you, too. That's why I suggested that you quit this job.

Sharlene: I know, I know. I'm too emotional, and I don't...

John: Exactly. And that's why I think we ought to postpone trying to have a baby.

Sharlene: John, I want to have your baby more than anything else in the world.

John: I want that, too. I think the most important thing right now is for you to get some rest. You can do that starting tonight. Tonight is your night off, isn't it?

Sharlene: Yes, tonight is my night off. And I'm going to go home right now and make us a wonderful dinner.

John: Well, I'm sorry, but I'm not going to be there.

Sharlene: Oh, but I thought that you--

John: No, I know, I... remember the case that I told you that I was working on, the guy that I referred to as "the ice man"?

Sharlene: Yeah.

John: Well, he came back. And it's--well, it's a long story, but I can't leave early.

Sharlene: Well, it's ok. I think I'll wait right here until your next break. Maybe we at least could have a cup of coffee.

John: Ok. But it might be a while.

Sharlene: You're worth the wait.

John: You're terrific.

Grant: Oh, doc, hi.

John: What are you doing out there? Come on.

Grant: Looking for you. I was just wondering if you needed any resources. I mean, like research assistance. Whatever you need, I can help you get it. All I have to do is pick up the telephone and...

John: Look, I told you that we're going to have to take things slowly. Now, the first thing I want you to do is get back in your room and get into your bed. We can talk about this later. Nothing's going to change overnight.

Josie: Mm, I'm glad it's you.

Matt: Mm. Mm, I'm glad it's you.

Josie: Well, who else would it be? I mean, I do live here, don't I?

Matt: I can still be glad, can't I?

Josie: Over here.

Matt: Ooh, cutting right to the chase.

Josie: No, no, no, no, no. Later for that.

Matt: I'm not a patient person, Josie.

Josie: Matthew, Matthew, I have great news.

Matt: Ooh! You won the lottery. Bought two one-way tickets to Rome, where you've already purchased a little villa in which we will live happily ever after this?

Josie: No.

Matt: You have to admit it was an interesting guess--

Josie: Matthew, Matthew.

Matt: What?

Josie: I'm going to have my first screen test.

Matt: Oh, great.

Josie: Is that all you can say?

Matt: Well, like, I'd kind of like the villa in Rome--

Josie: For a movie, Matthew, for a movie.

Matt: Oh, that's great. What--what did you--how did you get it?

Josie: Well, it's through that guy Brad.

Matt: Oh, great.

Josie: But I won't have to work with him or anything. I'll just do the screen test and that will be it.

Matt: Unless you get the part.

Josie: I'm not going to get the part. I mean, that's one in a million. They're going to be auditioning all kinds of people. It's just that this is, like, my really--this is my first real big break. Lucas feels that I can't possibly pass it up.

Matt: Well, why would you pass it up?

Josie: Well, I mean, if it were a problem for you.

Matt: No.

Josie: No?

Matt: No problem.

Josie: No problem?

Matt: Josie, I am cool about this. You know, I'm a cool guy.

Josie: Yeah, you are cool.

Matt: That's right.

Josie: Why?

Matt: Because Lucas wants me to get upset, throw a fit. Then you'd get turned off, dump me--so he could have you all to himself, make you into his own little creation. I'm not going to let him have that satisfaction.

Josie: Oh.

Matt: You see, that's why I'm such an incredibly cool guy. Because I'm learning slowly but surely how not to play Lucas's game.

Josie: I'm impressed.

Matt: Even if that means I have to go to the mall and watch 2 1/2 hours of you and Brad on the silver screen--ah!

Josie: Now, that's not going to happen.

Matt: I just wish, you know, I'd caught on a little sooner.

Josie: I love you.

Matt: I love you, too. No conditions.

Cass: There's no way all of these coincidences are just...

Frankie: Coincidental?

Cass: Right.

Frankie: And the lies--

Cass: Jordan has done nothing but lie.

Courtney: But that's not a crime.

Cass: It is if he means to defraud Rachel.

Courtney: You don't have proof.

[Doorbell rings]

Cass: I know that, and I'm not asking for a full-blown investigation. Look, all I'm doing is asking a friend who happens to be a cop to help someone who's been a good friend to all of us.

Courtney: I suppose I can run a check on Jordan.

Frankie: That's all we're asking, Courtney.

Courtney: But that doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to get to know the results.

Delivery man: Hi, I have flowers for Mrs. Amanda Fowler.

Paulina: Oh, I'm Amanda Fowler.

Delivery man: Sign here, please.

Paulina: Thank you.

Delivery man: Have a nice day.

Paulina: Mrs. Cory.

Rachel: Why did you do that?

Paulina: Why did I do what?

Rachel: You told him you were Amanda.

Paulina: Oh, I just thought it was easier than explaining that I'm Amanda's nephew's nanny, that's all.

Rachel: Don't do that again.

Paulina: I'm sorry.

Courtney: Could I see you for a moment, Rachel?

Rachel: Oh, Courtney.

Courtney: Hi. Yeah, Cass called me.

Rachel: I'm glad to see you. I was wondering if you could do me a favor.

Courtney: If I can, yeah.

Rachel: I would like to know anything I can about Ken Jordan.

Courtney: I'm going to see what I can do. Now, we certainly can establish if he's been arrested or convicted of a felony or not. But beyond that...

Rachel: It's all right. Whatever you find out.

Courtney: You know, I've also been thinking that maybe we should run a check on the people around you just to be on the safe side.

Rachel: The people around me?

Courtney: Yeah, the people that you met through Jordan and new staff members here. People like that.

Paulina: Dr. Frame, please. Hello, Jamie.

Jamie: Paulina. Is there anything wrong?

Paulina: No, Steven's fine. But I'm going to have to take off for a few days.

Jamie: I see. When?

Paulina: Right away. Tonight. I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to go to the circus with you and Steven.

Jamie: Paulina, is there some kind of an emergency?

Paulina: It's my Mom. She needs me back home.

Jamie: Is she sick?

Paulina: Nothing serious, I hope. But, well, she is not supposed to do anything strenuous for a few days.

Jamie: I understand.

Paulina: Why don't you ask Ms. Hudson to go to the circus with you? I'm sure Steven would love being with both his parents.

Jamie: I'll think about that.

Paulina: Well, I have to run now. Bye.

[Carnival music]

Grant: Ted! What took you so long?

Ted: Ah, I was just outside.

Grant: I am just joking. Calm down, calm down. Listen, I've got something for you to do. Priority one.

Ted: Shoot.

Grant: Now, I want you to get the name and the address of the girl that was the host at the fundraiser for me the other night, ok?

Ted: Have you lost your mind?

Grant: No, just get it for me right away.

Ted: You want me to research a one-night stand?

Grant: Don't you ever call her that again. Clear?

Ted: Clear.

Grant: You find her, and you find her fast. Otherwise you start looking for another job.

Sharlene: Damn you, Sharlene. Trapping me in this wimpy body. Damn you and damn that John Hudson. Without him you just fall apart, you just fall-- and then I'd get my chance to take over and live my own life. Oh, well, you have had it, Sharlene. I'm going to keep you away from John Hudson somehow. I'm going to beat you once and for all. [Laughs]

Jim: What're you doing?

Ken: Got to go.

Jim: But you're too sick, Ken.

Ken: I have to get to Bay City.

Jim: Look, if you try you could die.

Ken: That's ok. I'll be ok.

Jim: A scorpion bite is bad poison.

Ken: I got to go.

Jim: A secondary infection might set in, Ken.

Ken: I've got to take the chance.

Jim: Ah-ho, Ken, ah-ho.

Cass: Are you sure you want Jordan to come back here?

Rachel: I'll never know the truth about all of this unless we find him. I also want to know if he's all right.

Frankie: That sounds fair to me.

Rachel: Hire whoever you need to find him, Frankie.

Frankie: I'll do my best.

Rachel: If Mac wanted me to meet him, I want to know why. Find Ken Jordan.
