Ken: Well how soon do you think they could come up with the money?

[Knock on door]

Ken: Well, you realize that they're--they're passing up a potentially enormous return on their investment here? Well, remind him about what happened when they found the Spanish galleon off the Carolina coast. Will you tell me when they do come up with something, ok? Fine. No trouble getting away?

Paulina: No. You said it was important.

Ken: It is. I think you should go ahead.

Paulina: What?

Ken: Make your claim. I thought about it a lot, and I think you should tell Rachel who you really are.

Paulina: You mean it?

Ken: You're Mac Cory's daughter. You're entitled to your share of his investments.

Paulina: Ken-Ken, you don't know how relieved I am to hear you say that.

Ken: Ok, ok, hold on, hold on. Hold it--hold it. Now look, the next few weeks are going to be crucial. If we want to pull this off, you're going to have to agree to follow my orders... unconditionally.

John: Here you are. Take this. It'll help you relax. If you feel like you want to go sleep, don't fight it, all right? Go with it.

Sharlene: I won't.

John: I hate to leave you right now. I've got a critical patient in intensive care. I'll be back soon, I promise.

Grant's voice: You are the best thing that's happened to me. Don't you know that?

John: You've been through hell today, Sharlene, but you've won.

Sharlene: John? John--

John: Sharly won't be in control. I know that. We love each other too much. You start to feel frightened or the least bit uncomfortable, you call me.

Sharlene: Don't worry about me. I'll be fine.

John: Pill.

Sharlene: Oh yeah, right.

John: I'll be back soon.

Sharlene: I love you.

John: I love you, too.

[Door closes]

Sharlene: [Laughs] Grr!

Singer: ...My love

Donna's voice: I don't want you to ever break...

Singer: If you don't want my love it won't be the end of my life if you don't want my love Love tonight

Donna's voice: I don't want to talk about it.

Singer: Sun will rise if you--

[Music stops]

Jake's voice: Will we ever be lovers again, Donna?

Donna's voice: I don't know. And do you think I'd let you put my answer on videotape if I did?

[Knock on door]

Rachel: Yeah?

Ada: Hi.

Rachel: Hi.

Ada: Have you got a minute?

Rachel: Sure, what's up?

Ada: Did you talk to Amanda?

Rachel: Just now? I just went by her room. She didn't want to talk.

Ada: She was pretty antsy when I went in to see her, too.

Rachel: I know. I wish there was something more we could do for her.

Ada: So do I.

Rachel: Did you used to feel like this when I was her age?

Ada: You mean helpless?

Rachel: Yeah.

Ada: All the time.

Rachel: I used to do all the things that she's doing now, didn't I?

Ada: I try not to remember.

Rachel: Seriously.

Ada: Oh, things were so different then. We didn't have anything except each other.

Rachel: I know she's had everything. But she seems so insistent on this destructive course.

Ada: Well, she and Sam are trying to work things out.

Rachel: I'm not so sure she is. I mean, I don't think she can get Evan out of her head. I hope she doesn't ruin things with Sam.

Ada: She'll learn.

Rachel: Mom--

Ada: You had to.

Rachel: ...Divorce is terrible. I mean, if I'd known anything of what I know now--

Ada: Well, you didn't. You wanted so much.

Rachel: Too much.

Ada: Then you met Mac, and Mac was enough.

Rachel: Yeah, he was a lot. But I wonder if I ever really outgrew those needs. Or was I just lucky that I met somebody like Mac?

Ada: It's a little late to be wondering that now.

Rachel: No, I need to know.

Ada: Why? Because of Ken Jordan?

Rachel: Why?

Ada: Well, you wouldn't be looking for all these answers if you weren't going through something yourself.

Rachel: I don't want to make a mistake, you know?

Ada: Who does?

Rachel: I don't know why I even bother with him. I'm not even sure I trust him. I mean, is this just history repeating itself, and is that what Amanda is doing?

Ada: Amanda is not you. She's not what you were. She's a grown-up woman, responsible for what she does.

Rachel: Yeah, I know.

Ada: And you can't spend the rest of your life trying not to make a mistake. If you have feelings for Ken Jordan, that's great.

Rachel: Well, that's a switch.

Ada: Well, if you think he's ok, I trust that.

Rachel: Yeah, well I'm not so sure he is. And what if I make another mistake?

Ada: Well, you'll never know if you don't give it a chance, will you?

Rachel: I can't believe you're telling me this.

Ada: Why not? Don't you think I want you to be happy?

Rachel: Yes, but...

Ada: But? Mac?

Rachel: Yeah.

Ada: I loved Mac. And I know you did.

Rachel: More than anything.

Ada: Rachel, your life is in front of you. Mac would hate you hiding out here, being afraid that he wouldn't approve.

Rachel: I'm not hiding.

Ada: Well, it's 8:00 at night and you're getting ready for bed. Sometimes I think you're older than I am.

Rachel: Well, ok, so maybe you're right.

Ada: On occasion.

Rachel: So I guess I'll go out.

Ada: Out? Like where?

Rachel: Thanks.

Ada: You're welcome. Say hello to Mr. Jordan for me.

[Door closes]

Paulina: You want to run that by me again? What orders are we talking about?

Ken: Well first off, nobody can know that I'm the one that brought you to Bay City.

Paulina: But you did. If it hadn't been for you, I--

Ken: Take it easy. Your position is still going to be the same whether I'm involved or not.

Paulina: Ken, you're the one who found me. You're the one who knows.

Ken: I'm also the one who told Rachel a stack of lies when she was first getting to know me.

Paulina: You said you could explain all that.

Ken: Well, I think I probably covered myself on most of them. But no way is she going to believe you if she finds out that I'm the reason you came here.

Paulina: Great, so what am I supposed to do?

Ken: Well, we're going to have to come up with another story about how you found the Corys.

Paulina: In other words, you want me to lie. Am I correct?

Ken: Alter the truth.

Paulina: It's still a lie.

Ken: Look, if the end result is the same, what the hell difference does it make?

Paulina: Look, it was one thing hiring--getting myself hired as a nanny so I could get into the house.

Ken: Which was all part of my plan.

Paulina: I know.

Ken: Which worked perfectly.

Paulina: Yes. I found the codicil and I found the other half of the picture.

Ken: So trust me that this part will work.

Paulina: But if we have these two things, aren't they enough?

Ken: No.

Paulina: Why not? So what if they are suspicious? I have the letter from my mother. I have the codicil. Mac acknowledged me as his daughter. Isn't that enough? He wanted to take care of me.

Ken: It isn't going to be enough.

Paulina: You' re scared.

Ken: Of what?

Paulina: That Rachel will dump you.

Ken: Oh, here we go with that again.

Paulina: Ken, I have told you, you are in love with her. Why don't you just admit it?

Ken: Ok, if I care about her so much, then why am I going to lie to her again?

Paulina: You just said it-- because if you tell her the truth, if she knows that you found me, told me about my mother and--and put me in that house--

Ken: Paulina, you're missing the point. Neither the letter nor the codicil nor your half of the picture is proof positive that you are who you say you are.

Paulina: What else do they need?

Ken: They are gonna want to run checks, and what they check is going to depend on what information you give them.

Paulina: Lawyers.

Ken: Enough lawyers to make your head spin.

Paulina: I deserve what's mine.

Ken: Well, I agree.

Paulina: I have nothing to hide. Mac Cory was my father. He changed his will to include me.

Ken: That's right. But you're not going to see a dime of it unless you do exactly what I say.

Paulina: What do you need me to do?

Jake's voice: Why, because you felt guilt?

Donna's voice: Yes, I felt guilty!

Vicky: So, that's the tape.

Jake: What the hell are you doing here?

Vicky: You know what's funny--

Jake: You ever hear of knocking, Vicky?

Vicky: I came over here to apologize. Pretty good, huh?

Jake: You just barge in on anybody, don't you?

Vicky: I thought maybe I was too hard on you. And then I saw your own version of "sex, lies, and videotape."

Jake: I can explain this.

Vicky: Ha, I bet you can.

[Tape ejects]

Jake: It's not what you think.

Vicky: You have really sunk to a new low, Jake.

Jake: Give me a break, Vicky. Just calm down.

Vicky: Calm down? You--you slept with my mother. You're disgusting, and I hate you, I hate you!

John: Actually, I'm glad I came out.

Grant: Why?

John: I'm gonna be blunt, Grant. The last test we did showed that your red count is decreasing rapidly.

Grant: Meaning what?

John: If it continues, I'm going to have to put you back in the hospital.

Grant: Oh, great. All I need.

John: Yeah, I've seen this happen before with patients who give up.

Grant: What are you talking about?

John: I don't know, you tell me.

Grant: But I haven't stopped fighting, John. I just--

John: Just what?

Grant: Well, it's--it's so things just haven't been working out lately.

John: Like what?

Grant: Well, I mean, there's somebody that I just--I can't find.

John: Ah, yes, this woman that you've been telling me about?

Grant: Yeah. I mean, frankly, I'm sick of talking about it because the more I talk about it, the--seems to make it worse.

John: It makes what worse?

Grant: Well, you know, when you care about somebody, when you love somebody, and then things go wrong and then suddenly everything goes wrong.

John: Yeah--yeah, I know what you mean.

[Phone rings]

Grant: Excuse me a second.

[Phone rings] Hello?

Sharlene: Hi, it's Sharly.

Grant: Where the hell are you?

Sharlene: On my way to you, ready or not.

Donna: So, did you reschedule the meeting with Cass?

Michael: No, actually. Uh, I thought that maybe you and I would talk it over. I--I think maybe we should rethink our strategy a little bit.

Donna: Did you come up with any more new ideas?

Michael: You know something? I r--I really don't want to talk about this right now. What I'd really like to do is I would like to take you to dinner tonight. Have you eaten?

Donna: No, but we can't go out.

Michael: Why?

Donna: Because I just put Mikey to bed, Bridget's gone over to Victoria's, and Angela's off.

Michael: Oh. Well, actually that's--that's not too bad. I think I rather prefer a nice quiet evening home alone with you, anyway.

Donna: Oh. Well, if you're hungry, I could cook something for us. And don't you dare make a joke about my cooking, Michael Hudson.

Michael: W--would I do that?

Donna: I've learned a few things, I have.

Michael: Well, I--well, I tell you what. Why don't we cook something together? I mean, we always were a pretty good team in the kitchen.

Donna: Ok.

Michael: Yeah?

Donna: Um--

Michael: What, what? What are we--

Donna: An omelet.

Michael: An omelet's good. How about soufflé?

Donna: And a huge salad.

Michael: And biscuits?

Donna: Yeah. It's been a long time since we've done anything together.

Michael: It's been a very long time. Madame, please. The kitchen awaits. Right this way. Oh, and I have eggs for you.

Donna: [Laughs]

Michael: And I have flour for you.

Jake: Vicky, listen to me.

Vicky: [Crying]

Jake: Listen to me. Listen to me.

Vicky: [Breathing rapidly] Sure.

[Objects fall to floor]

Vicky: Why not, Jake? Maybe you'll tell me something I haven't already heard.

Jake: It's not what you think.

Vicky: What do I think?

Jake: Just hear me out, all right, Vicky?

Vicky: Oh, God, go for it. Really.

Vicky: [Breathing heavily]

Jake: You know something, in a way, I'm... I'm almost glad you found out, because now I have somebody I can talk to about it.

Vicky: Jake, why didn't you call me on the telephone? I would have come over here sooner. Jake, you know, I mean I'm just dying to hear this.

Jake: You said you would listen.

Vicky: What--what were you going for? A new world record? Let's see.

Jake: S--

Vicky: You had me at a young age, and then you married my sister, and now you've gotten my mother. Jake, what do they call that? Is that--is that a royal flush? Or a full house?

Jake: It wasn't like that!

Vicky: Oh you're --you're telling me you have not slept with all the Love women?

Jake: You know something? I'm not going to let you make this sound like it's something dirty because that's not what it was.

Vicky: Oh, just what was it?

Jake: It was real.

Vicky: I beg your pardon?

Jake: Donna was alone. She didn't have anybody, you know?

Vicky: Except for you.

Jake: Yes, except for me. Marley had slammed the door in my face. And Donna understood, and I knew exactly what she was going through. I don't know, Vick, we started getting along.

Vicky: Getting along?

Jake: This all started when you ran away to Lassiter and I had to drive her there.

Vicky: Fabulous.

Jake: You should've seen the look on her face, Vicky. I mean, you should've seen the look on her face when she got the divorce papers. She was devastated.

Vicky: [Sniffling] Mm. Yeah, I know what that's like.

Jake: I was there. Vicky, I... ...I just wanted to hold her. I just wanted to let her know that she wasn't alone.

Grant: I'm definitely ready to see you. I've been worried about you.

Sharlene: Have you?

Grant: Yes.

Sharlene: Gee, you make me feel almost wanted.

Grant: So, when are you coming?

Sharlene: As soon as I hang up this phone.

Grant: Good. I'll see you soon.

Sharlene: Bye.

Ken: And where did you get your piece of the photograph?

Paulina: It was in a letter from my mother.

Ken: And where'd you get the letter?

Paulina: What should I tell them? You gave it to me.

Ken: You got it in the mail. The mission agency forwarded it to you. You got that?

Paulina: Mm-hmm.

Ken: Say it.

Paulina: The mission agency forwarded it to me.

Ken: And what did the letter say?

Paulina: I'll just show it to them.

Ken: No, tell them what was in it, then show it to them.

Paulina: It was a letter from my mother, she was about to die--

Ken: And what was her name?

Paulina: Maria Hernandez DeSilva.

Ken: And you never heard from her before you got that letter?

Paulina: Didn't even know her name.

Ken: Why? Why'd she abandon you?

Paulina: She didn't. I mean, she didn't mean to. Our country was at war and she was afraid for me. She sent me away because she loved me.

Ken: Good. So far.

Paulina: Ken.

Ken: What?

Paulina: You think that's true? Did she love me?

Ken: Of course she loved you.

Paulina: Tell me more about her.

Ken: She was very strong. Very, very brave.

Paulina: And Mac?

Ken: Mac? Mac was a born leader. Smart, tough, no pretensions, real quality.

Paulina: I wish I'd known them.

Ken: Yeah, but you didn't. So let's not get into details.

Paulina: Why?

Ken: Because you're only supposed to know what you read in that letter.

Paulina: Right, ok. But I want to know about them. I mean, I need to know about them.

Ken: Fine.

Paulina: This is my family.

Ken: I understand. After you've told them, ask them anything you want about Mac, they'll tell you.

Paulina: And my mother?

Ken: Paulina, this is serious business. Can we reminisce later?

Paulina: Yes, ok, sorry. What else do I need to know?

Ken: Plenty. But I need time to think.

Paulina: Ok. Should we meet again?

Ken: Are you kidding? We're going to meet every day until you're perfect on this.

Paulina: Aren't you getting a little bit carried away with all this?

Ken: Wait till you come up against Rachel and Ada. Or Iris, she may be the toughest of all. You'll thank me, 'cause they're going to do anything they can to try to break you.

Paulina: Why?

Ken: Think about it. Think about the money.

Paulina: But what about what Mac would want?

[Car door closes]

Ken: It's Rachel. Go out the back way. I'll--I'll call you.

[Door opens]

Ken: Rachel, hi.

Rachel: Hello.

Ken: What's all this?

Rachel: Well, you told me that you were working late. That usually means that you're going to skip a meal, so I decided to bring you dinner.

Ken: [Laughs] Thank you very much.

Rachel: Well, you've done an awful lot for us, so I thought maybe we could return the favor.

Ken: Well, that's--that's very nice, really. I--

Rachel: You haven't eaten, have you?

Ken: No--no, actually, I haven't.

Rachel: Good. So, what is it you're working on?

Ken: Pardon?

Rachel: Wh--what you're working on? The reason you're skipping your meals. Usually when you do that, it's something that--

Ken: Oh, that.

Rachel: ...You're on to really hot.

Ken: Yeah, uh--

Rachel: You were telling me about something the other--

Ken: Let's not talk about that. I'd--I'd rather think about something else.

Rachel: Ok. Well, how about we go over to the Galloway space? There's a show over there that I haven't seen yet. Have you seen it?

Ken: No--no, actually, I haven't, but, uh-Jeez, I can't go tonight.

Rachel: Oh, that's too bad. The show's closing tomorrow.

Ken: What a shame. I'm sorry.

Rachel: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I got it.

Ken: What?

Rachel: I--I didn't mean to bother you.

Ken: You didn't bother me.

Rachel: I'm--I'm sorry for intruding.

Ken: Rachel, you haven't intruded.

Rachel: Enjoy your dinner.

Ken: Wait a minute, I-- Rachel!

[Sighs]

Vicky: Don't give me that.

Jake: It wasn't so different.

Vicky: I wasn't married, Jake.

Jake: And I was one step away from getting divorced.

Vicky: She's my mother. You slept with my mother, Jake!

[Sniffling]

Jake: Do you remember how you felt?

Vicky: When?

Jake: Look at me. Remember when Jamie dumped you?

Vicky: Oh...

Jake: You know how lonely you were, Vicky? Do you remember how you just wanted someone to hold you? You didn't want to be alone and I was there and it happened.

Vicky: Yes. And look what it did to both of our marriages.

Jake: We had no idea it was going to turn out like that.

Vicky: And how's my mother going to turn out?

Jake: Is it so wrong to care about somebody, Vicky? Because I do! And that's all I can say.

Vicky: Oh, God. It gets worse. You still care. You still want to be with her, don't you?

Michael: I think that soufflé will be just fine without us banging around in the kitchen.

Donna: Well, I know they have a tendency to fall, but maybe we should be in there watching--

Michael: No, no, no. Not with accomplished chefs like us. It's going to be just fine.

Donna: That was fun.

Michael: Yeah, that was. Would you like some wine?

Donna: I'd love some.

Michael: Please, sit, make yourself at home.

>> I'd try to deny it but I'm still in love with you

Michael: I can't believe this. Just us.

>> Miss you like crazy ever since you went away every hour of every day

Michael: Feeling any better?

Donna: Yeah, I'm fine. I just--I get very upset about the custody thing, especially when I'm alone.

Michael: Do you get lonely?

Donna: Yeah, that, too.

Michael: Me, too.

>> Just no getting over you

Donna: I was very glad to see you today. I've had a really difficult day.

Michael: You mind if I ask you a question...about us? About 100 times a day, I look at you and I just want to reach out and hug you. Doesn't matter what you're doing. Doesn't matter what you feel like--up, down, happy, sad. Want to hug you.

Donna: I appreciate you not putting pressure on me.

Michael: Well, you know that I want you back.

Donna: And sometimes, I want to reach out to you, too.

Michael: Why don't you?

Donna: Because I'm scared. Because I was hurt so much.

Michael: Well, I wish I could make you forget all that, but I guess I can't.

Donna: If you'd just given me a sign, I wouldn't have--

Michael: What? Wouldn't have what?

Donna: ...Decided to do what I did.

>> Just one night

Michael: Is it that hard to turn back?

>> That magic feeling like we used to do hold on tight

Michael: Well, all it takes is a touch, you know.

Donna: I know.

>> If seeing's believing it's worth the wait

Michael: And I'm right here.

>> So hold me and tell me it's not too late we're so good together

Donna: I know.

>> We're starting forever now and I miss you like crazy I miss you like crazy no matter what I say or do there's just no getting over you and I miss you

>> Baby

>> I miss you

>> Baby

>> All the tender love you gave me

>> Just one night

Michael: What, what's wrong?

Donna: Nothing. I want us to be closer, but--

Michael: But what?

Donna: Oh, you're embarrassing me.

Michael: I'm embarrassing you?

Donna: You keep looking at me.

Michael: Well, yeah, I-I usually do that when--

Donna: No, I mean--your eyes-I mean, you're looking at me with your--

[Laughing] ...Eyes. Oh.

>> And I miss you like crazy

Donna: I mean, when you kiss me--I just didn't realize I would have these feelings.

Michael: What feelings?

Donna: Michael, there's still a lot of things in the way here.

>> I miss you

>> Baby

>> All the tender love you gave me

Michael: Donna... I don't see anything in our way.

>> And I miss you

Michael: I think that you should just...let go.

>> I miss you like crazy baby

Michael: Let it happen.

>> Only your sweet love can save me I miss you like crazy a love like ours will never end just touch me and we're there again miss you like crazy I miss you like crazy no matter what I say...

Vicky: And my mother? Does she have the same feelings?

Jake: What's wrong with having feelings for somebody, Vicky?

Vicky: Somebody who just happens to be your ex-wife's mother.

Jake: This doesn't have anything to do with Marley.

Vicky: How can you say that? How can you just decide that Marley won't have any reaction to you sleeping with her mother?

Jake: I didn't say that.

Vicky: What Jake wants, Jake takes.

Jake: Oh, my God, look who's talking, Vicky.

Vicky: You get all revved up and ready to go and you don't give a damn who the woman is, right?

Jake: It's not me, and you know it.

Vicky: Jake. Are you the reason my mother is not getting back together with my father?

Jake: I don't know, Vick. You'd have to ask her.

Vicky: Because if she's hurting him because she's got the hots for you--

Jake: That's not how it is.

Vicky: Oh, and I'm supposed to believe you after all these months of lies?

Jake: I didn't lie to you, Vicky.

Vicky: Oh, Jake, you'll do anything. You will just say anything to get what you want--

Jake: That is bull and you know it!

Vicky: How? How do I know it?

Jake: What is with you, Vicky? Whatever you do is ok, whatever I do is evil?

Vicky: I never slept with your father! You're not going to get away with this.

Jake: Oh, what are you going to do, Vicky? You going to put it in a gossip column?

Vicky: Funny.

Jake: You're not going to tell anybody, Vick. Because if you do, you'll be hurting Marley and Michael.

Vicky: And I suppose it won't have any effect on you and my mother, huh?

Jake: Oh, I guess you could hurt Donna, but you really don't want to do that, do you?

Vicky: Yes.

Jake: But you're not going to. Because to hurt me, Vicky, you'd have to hurt your entire family.

Vicky: Whatever it takes.

Jake: I know you. You don't have the guts.

Vicky: Watch me.

John: Sharlene? Sharlene?

[Knock on door]

Taylor: Anybody home? Hello?

John: Taylor?

Taylor: John. I was just driving by and I thought I'd stop by. I've been thinking about Sharlene all evening.

John: Well, she's gone. Her car's not here. I can't find her anywhere.

Taylor: Sharly?

John: What else could it be?

Sharlene: Am I glad to see you.

Grant: Oh, me, too.

Sharlene: Oh.

Grant: What happened to you?

Sharlene: Are you all right?

Grant: Yes.

Sharlene: Are you?

Grant: Yes, are you?

Sharlene: I've never been better. Never been better.

Grant: Oh, I had a friend who was here just a minute ago and I wanted him to meet you.

Sharlene: Oh, I don't care.

Grant: He had to leave.

Sharlene: I just want to see you anyway.

Grant: Oh, I've been looking and looking and looking everywhere.

Sharlene: I know. I couldn't get away. I tried to call--I would've called, but--

Grant: It's ok--it's ok, you're here now. You're here now. Oh, why couldn't you come?

Sharlene: I--

Grant: I checked the Pelican like every two hours. They said that you hadn't even come in to work. Where were you?

Sharlene: I thought I'd never get out. But I made it. I made it.

Grant: It's that guy, isn't it? The one that you're involved with.

Sharlene: It's just been a lot harder to get away than I thought.

Grant: Is he threatening you?

Sharlene: No.

Grant: Is he forcing you to stay with him?

Sharlene: Not really.

Grant: Because if he is, tell me--tell me, because I'll take care of it.

Sharlene: No, no. It's all right now.

Grant: Look, I--I don't want anybody threatening the freedom...

Sharlene: Grant? Gr-Grant. Grant, what is it? You're sick.

Grant: I'm--I'm ok.

Sharlene: No, you're not.

Grant: I'm--look, I'm just a little bit weak.

Sharlene: Yeah, sure. Grant--

Grant: I'm a little weak, that's all.

Sharlene: No, Grant, who do you think you're trying to fool?

Grant: Look, no--nothing to worry about. Nothing to worry about.

Sharlene: Grant. All right, Grant, come on. Grant.

Grant: [Coughs] I can't..

Sharlene: What is it? No-- el: [Sighs] Oh.

Ken: Rachel, this is ridiculous.

Rachel: Listen, I will stop intruding on you, but you've got to stop intruding on me.

Ken: You have got to listen to me.

Rachel: About what?

Ken: I don't believe this. First you storm out of my shop, then you won't even let me explain.

Rachel: Explain what? You were busy, that's fine.

Ken: Obviously, it's not.

Rachel: Well, I have to admit, it is a bit confusing.

Ken: Why?

Rachel: Because you keep wanting to get closer.

Ken: That's right, I do.

Rachel: And you want me to be more open with you.

Ken: Exactly.

Rachel: Well, apparently I'm supposed to call ahead first and schedule this increased openness.

Ken: Will you give me a break?

Rachel: Just say what you want to say.

Ken: Thank you. The fact is, I'm not used to being in a relationship like this.

Rachel: Like what?

Ken: One that's meaningful.

Rachel: Meaningful?

Ken: Yes.

Rachel: You know what I think?

Ken: What?

Rachel: I think you're cross because I descended on you without your permission.

Ken: Oh, come on.

Rachel: And I understand that you're a guy--you want to be in charge of things like this. I mean, you wear the pants and all.

Ken: I am not some chauvinist pig.

Rachel: Then what are you?

Ken: I am used to being footloose and independent.

Rachel: Well, so am I.

Ken: Well, wait a minute.

Rachel: I have to go up and see my daughter.

Ken: You do not. You were going to have a picnic supper with me just a little while ago.

Rachel: Plans change, Ken.

Ken: Rachel. All right--look, I know you're not going to listen to a word I say. But would you please try to remember one thing?

Rachel: What?

Ken: Before I met you, my freedom was the most important thing in the world to me. And now, sometimes, it feels pretty empty. Good night.

[Door opens and closes]

Rachel: I know the feeling.

Paulina: Why are you doing this?

Ada: Well, it's Hilda's night off and I thought I'd get this stuff put away.

Paulina: Ok, well let me take some things.

Ada: All right, take those two top ones, ok? And they go on Rachel's bed.

Paulina: Ok.

Ada: All right?

Paulina: You sure you're ok?

Ada: Thank you. Yeah, I'm fine--I'm fine.

Paulina: If you need me for anything else--

Ada: I won't. Thank you.

Paulina: [Sighs]

Paulina: Rachel? Jamie? Everyone, where are you?

Rachel: Paulina, what is it, honey?

Paulina: I have something to tell you, and it's very important.

Ada: Well, what is it? Can I get you a glass of water or something?

Paulina: No, no. I have been here under false pretenses. I'm not who I said I was.

Vicky: I figured as much.

Ken: Paulina, you don't have to do this.

Paulina: Yes, I have to.

Rachel: Paulina, if you're lying to us again, I'm going to have to ask Jamie to dismiss you.

Paulina: Oh, I don't think you'll want to do that once you know the truth. I'm Mac's daughter.

Vicky: Are you out of your mind--

Rachel: Let her speak. What do you mean?

Paulina: My mother and Mac Cory were lovers in Central America. I didn't know about this until recently when I received a very moving letter from her on her deathbed explaining the whole story.

Rachel: Oh, my Lord.

Vicky: This is unbelievable.

Ada: Great goodness!

Paulina: I--I didn't mean to shock you all like this, but I wanted to learn as much about the family as I could before I told you--find out if it was all true. I hope you don't mind that I kept it to myself for so long.

Ken: It's amazing.

Rachel: It really is. From the first moment I saw you, I thought there was something extraordinary about you.

Ada: I know what you mean.

Rachel: Every time I looked at you, I was reminded of Mac. It's as though he were a part of you.

Paulina: I know--I know, I feel he's very close now.

Ken: You really feel that?

Rachel: Oh yes, I do. Oh, Paulina, I'm so happy you told us this.

Ada: How horrible it must have been for you, keeping that secret for this long.

Paulina: Well, it hasn't been easy.

Vicky: Oh, Paulina, I treated you like a lowly servant and you're an heiress. Can you forgive me?

Paulina: Of course, Vicky.

Vicky: Oh!

Rachel: Oh, this is so fantastic. An ancient wrong has been righted.

Ken: Mac would be so proud of all of you, especially his daughter Paulina.

Rachel: Oh, Paulina, welcome to our family. I can't wait to tell everyone.

Paulina: I finally have the family I've always wanted.

Rachel: Oh!

Paulina: Finally. Oh!

Rachel: Paulina? Paulina? What on earth are you doing here?

John: If just hadn't left. If I hadn't stayed at Grant's for so long.

Taylor: Stop blaming yourself.

John: She was at risk and I left her.

Taylor: John, whipping yourself is not going to help Sharlene.

John: In addition to which, I gave her one of these. That means she's driving around out there with this stuff in her system.

Taylor: John, multiple personalities can be very shrewd. I mean no doubt, Sharly's gotten very good at hiding behind a perfect imitation of Sharlene.

John: What do you mean?

Taylor: You may not always know when she's Sharly. What I'm getting at is that Sharly may not have taken the drug. If she was already Sharly, she could've faked taking the pill.

John: I gotta find her.

Taylor: That may not be so easy. Sharly is desperate and fighting for her life--

John: Well, sh--

Taylor: ...Her very existence.

John: Sharlene is a strong woman, who is also fighting for her existence.

Taylor: She's desperate to stay in control. And I'm afraid, for her, control means staying away from you.

Grant: [Coughs]

Sharlene: Don't give me that. I want the truth. I want the truth.

Grant: It's ok.

Sharlene: Grant--

Grant: It's ok.

Sharlene: ...When I walked in here, you looked so weak.

Grant: Look, I just--I missed you. I just missed you.

Sharlene: Grant!

Grant: I'm serious--I'm serious. I just--I--I needed you, that's all. I just needed you.

Sharlene: Sometimes when I look at you, you look so sick it scares me.

Grant: Look, let's--let's not talk about this anymore. Let's--let's not talk about people being sick, ok?

Sharlene: I have missed you so.

Grant: Oh, you've really thrown me for a loop lately, you know that?

Sharlene: What do you mean?

Grant: I mean, I've met a lot of people. But nobody's ever touched me. I've met dozens of women in my life.

Sharlene: Are you trying to make me jealous?

Grant: No--no, because I can't even remember their names.

Sharlene: I know what you mean.

Grant: It was all like a big game, this love.

Sharlene: You really love me for me?

Grant: Is that so hard for you to believe?

Sharlene: I've been fighting for so long. I've been struggling so hard to be strong, to be independent.

Grant: Look, don't you know what you are? Don't you know what you have? I want you. I want you so much.

Sharlene: Grant, I'm warning you. I'm not good. I'm not kind and sweet.

Grant: Ha ha, ta--good, because we're a good match then.

Sharlene: You're a politician.

Grant: Mm-hmm.

Sharlene: You're trying to help people.

Grant: Mm-hmm. I am a politician who almost lost his soul because of it.

[Sighs] And you know what? You gave it back to me when I met you. You gave me back my perspective.

Sharlene: I guess we bring out the best in each other.

Grant: Mm-hmm. So no more disappearing acts, ok? You gotta promise me. You gotta promise me that no matter what happens in the future, that we're--that we're in this together, all right?

Sharlene: [Whispering] I promise. I promise. I'm gonna stay close to you.

Grant: Oh, please--

Sharlene: I am.

Grant: [Whispering] Please, please, please.

Sharlene: I'm not going back. John Hudson.

Rachel: I said, what are you doing in here?

Paulina: I was just--

Rachel: Paulina, this is my bedroom. You can't wander in and out whenever you feel like it.

Paulina: Mrs. Cory, I'm sorry--

Rachel: Paulina, this is a very large house with a lot of people living in it. There's got to be one place where I can go to get some privacy, ok? And what are you doing with that? Paulina, what are you doing with that?

Paulina: I was just--

Rachel: Who do you think you are?

[Doorbell rings]

Michael: What the heck?

Donna: [Whispering] Whoever that is can probably see the lights on.

Michael: Well, might have something to do with Mikey.

Donna: Then we have to answer.

Michael: [Sighs]

Donna: [Whispering] Wait, wait, wait.

Michael: Oh, ok. I'll get the light.

Michael: Victoria, hi.

Donna: Hi, darling.

Michael: Uh--

Donna: Something wrong?

Michael: ...Come on in.

Vicky: I need to talk to you.

Donna: Of course.

Vicky: Alone.

Michael: Victoria, we're kind of busy right now, you know?

Donna: Can it wait till tomorrow, darling?

Vicky: You'll want to hear what I have to say.

Michael: All right. If you have something to say, let's hear it.
