Matt: Hi, Iris.
Iris: Matthew. Rachel.
Rachel: Hi, darling.
Iris: I thought it was just going to be family.
Rachel: I wanted Ken to be here. Ken and Mac --
Iris: I know that, but I didn't even invite Lucas.
Ken: What a beautiful painting, Iris.
Iris: Thank you, Ken.
Amanda: I can't believe it's been a year.
Matt: Do you -- do you still remember his voice?
Amanda: Of course.
Matt: Sometimes I can hear his laugh, you know, like that.
Amanda: Yeah, I know.
Amanda: Iris, it was very nice of you to invite all of us today.
Iris: It's my pleasure. I think Daddy would have wanted us all to be together.
Rachel: Hi, honey, how are you doing?
Amanda: Oh, I'm fine. Just wondering what would have happened if he wouldn't have died. Think he would have been able to help me figure everything out?
Rachel: You could do that all by yourself. You're his daughter.
Vicky: Oh, hello! Good thing you weren't carrying the crystal.
Paulina: You don't have any crystal.
Vicky: What's got you so jumpy?
Paulina: I guess I'm just not used to you yet, Vicky.
Vicky: Oh, yeah, I guess the Corys do enter a room in a more dignified manner.
Vicky: You're up to something.
Paulina: Excuse me?
Vicky: Oh, don't bat your eyelashes at me. I know that look anywhere. I patented it.
Paulina: I really don't know what you're talking about.
Vicky: Come on, I love the people besides me who give the Corys a ride. What is it? What are you up to? C'mon, you --
[Knock on door]
Jake: Come on Vicky, I know you're home. Your little sports car is illegally parked on the front lawn.
Vicky: You can tell me. I swear I won't breathe a word. Oh -- what do you want?
Jake: Peace offering.
Vicky: Gee, you got the good stuff. 5.99 at the package mart.
Jake: Can I come in? We have to talk.
Vicky: Sure. Doesn't mean I'll be nice to you.
Jake: Well, maybe if I had the scarlet letter "a" sewn on all my t-shirts, you'd be satisfied.
Vicky: That's not funny.
Jake: My, my, my. What have we here?
Jamie: I'm sorry, Guillaume. Could you please ring Ms. Love's one more time?
Emma: Sharlene, what are you talking about?
Sharlene: I think you know.
Emma: Know what?
Sharlene: I brought you your sandwich. I've cut the crust off and everything.
Emma: Sharlene, no thank you. No --
Sharlene: All right, then, Emma, you have to listen to me for a minute because we have to talk about this. We -- we have to talk about my problem otherwise we won't get to the bottom of it.
Emma: Problem! Sharlene, you don't have any problem. All right, ok, ok. You're a little moody sometimes. So what? Look, I mean, Jason is arrogant. I'm judgmental. Everybody does something bad sometimes.
Sharlene: Emma, please.
Emma: Please what?
Sharlene: I -- you know I'm seeing a psychiatrist.
Emma: All right, ok. But you don't have to let the whole neighbourhood know.
Sharlene: I'm not. But I'm not going to be ashamed of it either, do you understand? Emma?
Emma: Yes, yes.
Sharlene: My doctor has diagnosed me as -- I am suffering from a multiple personality disorder.
Emma: Excuse me?
Sharlene: There are moments, quite a lot of them lately, when I -- when another, another personality, someone who's not like me at all -- well she kind of takes me over, and she does whatever she likes.
Emma: Like in that movie "Sybil"? Sharlene, that is ridiculous! You can't possibly believe that you --
Sharlene: Emma, I'm not aware of it when it's happening, and I don't remember anything about it when it's over.
Emma: All right, John -- does - - does -- does John know about this?
Sharlene: John has been wonderful. He's been more wonderful than I even thought he could be. He's behind me from the start. I feel blessed.
Emma: So this is real, then?
Sharlene: This is horribly real.
Emma: Ok, who else knows about this? Does Frankie know? Does Josie know?
Sharlene: Emma, the only people that know are you and John and Dr. Benson.
Emma: Who's that? Who's he?
Sharlene: She -- she. Dr. Benson is my doctor, Taylor Benson.
Emma: A woman doctor with a name like Taylor.
Sharlene: Emma, please, I'm telling you all this because I love you and I need you to listen to me. I need you to help me.
Emma: Honey, I always have.
Sharlene: I know that. I know that. You were there for me all those years ago. You were the one who put me in the hospital.
Emma: Is this my fault? I didn't know what else to do.
Sharlene: Emma, I know that. I know you didn't know what else to do. Why did you take me out?
Emma: You were better.
Sharlene: Is that what the doctors told you?
Emma: Uh, some.
Sharlene: Emma, see. Maybe if I had stayed there all those years ago I could've beaten this thing and this wouldn't be happening to me again now.
Emma: It is my fault.
Sharlene: No, Emma, of course it isn't.
Emma: Sharlene, listen to me. I could not leave you in that horrible place. I couldn't. The other patients, you weren't like them, Sharlene. And they were -- well, it would have been wrong. I had to do what I thought was best.
Sharlene: I know that. You've always taken care of me. It isn't fair.
Emma: Oh, it is, too, fair. Sharlene, listen -- you're my baby sister and I love you. And Sharlene, now listen to me. You're not crazy. You can't let anybody tell you that, you --
Sharlene: Emma, Emma, Emma! I have an illness. That's what this is. It's a serious illness. I need to know you'll be there if -- when I need you. Ok?
Josie: Momma, I need your help, it -- it's an emergency.
Guillaume: I'm sorry, Mr. Frame. [Speaking in French] Would you like a taxi?
Jamie: No. No, not yet. There's still something I need to do. Guillaume, if you see Ms. Love, if she should come back, would you tell her that I'm looking for her and I'll be right back?
Iris: So I thought it was important not to mourn Daddy but to celebrate his life.
Rachel: Jamie was sorry he couldn't be here.
Iris: How's the conference going?
Rachel: Fine, I guess. He hasn't complained.
Iris: You know, I was a teensy bit angry with you.
Rachel: Oh, yes, I should be surprised.
Iris: Well, you know, I hadn't heard from you, and I thought you wouldn't let today go by without planning something.
Rachel: I just hadn't gotten to it, Iris. I would never have excluded you.
Iris: Well, there certainly was time when that wasn't true.
Rachel: Your father loved you, Iris. I won't forget that.
Iris: Thank you.
Rachel: You've been very nice to Amanda lately. I really do appreciate it. I'm glad you had us all here together with you today.
Amanda: Is Josie coming over later?
Amanda: She working?
Amanda: Ok, come on. What's happening?
Matt: We broke up and I don't want to talk about it, all right?
Ken: Amanda, I know you could do without me, but may I tell you something? You have a lot of your father in you.
Amanda: How do you mean?
Ken: He was a fighter. And so are you.
Amanda: My father won most of his battles.
Ken: You will, too. And I think you'll find the strength to get through all of this. Just try to do what's right. I think that's what Mac always did.
Matt: Excuse me, could we all gather around here? I'd like to make a toast. I'd like to make a toast to Mac. Everyone knows he was a big one on toasts, and thought I'd give it a shot. To a man who believed in truth, love, and family. To Mac.
[All together] To Mac!
Iris: To Daddy.
Josie: Aunt Emma, I didn't know you were back. I thought -- Momma, I know I haven't told you much of anything lately, but I need you now. We have to talk.
Sharlene: Josie, what happened?
Emma: Hey, why don't you come in the kitchen with me? I've got fresh lemonade.
Josie: Thanks, Aunt Emma, but lemonade isn't what I need right now.
Emma: Ooh, it sounds serious. Listen, your Mom's plate is kind of full right now, so why don't you --
Sharlene: Emma, I think I can --
Josie: I have to make a phone call.
Sharlene: We have to talk.
Emma: Seems to be going around.
Sharlene: I'm serious, Emma. We have to get something straight.
Sharlene: Now, I know I just told you I was having some problems.
Emma: Some problems, Sharlene? Is that what you call this, some problems?
Sharlene: Josie is my daughter, and I can still help her when she needs me.
Emma: Honey, but Josie doesn't know about what's happening to you.
Sharlene: She doesn't know. She doesn't know. And I need to be able to help her when I can. You understand?
Emma: Fine, fine. I'll just -- I'll step away from it.
Sharlene: I don't want you to step away from it. I want you to help me.
Emma: Sharlene, that's what I thought I was doing.
Sharlene: No, you were taking over. And I can't let anyone do that for me ever again. That's how this whole thing started, Emma. Because I couldn't handle my own life, and I let everyone else do it for me. Now that has got to stop. Ok?
Emma: Ok. Sharlene, are you ok right now?
Emma: All right, so why don't I just leave you and Josie alone and I'll go visit Evan at the hospital, ok?
Sharlene: Thank you.
Emma: Now, I won't be long.
Sharlene: Just take your time.
Emma: I won't.
Sharlene: Emma, thanks.
Josie: He's even got Hilda lying for him?
Sharlene: Josie, did the two of you have a fight?
Josie: I just called his house, and Hilda said that he was at some family gathering. But I know that's a lie. I mean, it's -- it's a weekday afternoon.
Sharlene: Now just wait a second. This is the memorial, the anniversary of Mac's death. Now, John said something --
Josie: I know that. I know that.
Sharlene: Well, then, maybe he is at some memorial service --
Josie: No, no, that's tonight, and I'm supposed to go. He's -- he's never going to forgive me for this.
Sharlene: Josie, he's never going to forgive you for what? For what?
Josie: Matthew found out who's been threatening me.
Sharlene: He did? And he's mad?
Josie: Because it's me.
Paulina's voice: Hello?
Paulina's voice: What's happening?
Ken: You might want to drop by Iris' penthouse in a little while. But go easy. Don't hurt these people.
Paulina: I'll be right there. Vicky.
Paulina: Vicky, could I please have the rest of the afternoon off?
Vicky: What? This whole place --
Paulina: I promise I will be home in time to give Steven dinner, and I'll make sure that he's in bed before the party starts, ok?
Paulina: Thank you so much. Nice to meet you, Jack.
Vicky: So, Jack, how long must you stay?
Jake: Are we ever going to get past this?
Vicky: Oh, I'm sorry. Am I being unreasonable?
Jake: I think you are, Vicky.
Vicky: Oh, gee, I'll have to rethink how I feel about my ex-boyfriend sleeping with my mother before the ink dried on his divorce decree from my sister.
Jake: I missed talking to you.
Vicky: No, you didn't.
Jake: Don't tell me what I think, Vicky.
Vicky: Why not?
Jake: Because I came here out of the goodness of my heart to take a step towards reconciliation.
Vicky: Oh, swell.
Jake: Because if it's going to happen, I'm going to make it happen. All you can do is sit and file your nails and insult me.
Vicky: Well, honey, when somebody has a track record like you, you got to take care of yourself, you know what I mean?
Jake: So -- who's coming to your party?
Vicky: Not you.
Jake: Come on.
Vicky: I would not invite you to my party if you got down on your knees and kissed my feet.
Jake: There is no chance of that.
Jake: Come on, Vick, let me go to your party. I don't have anything to do.
Vicky: I don't have time for this. My babysitter just ditched me. I have 30 people coming for cocktails in 6 hours. I've got to get my nails done, my hair done, and to top it all off, my favourite lipstick is not sold in this one-horse town. So I've got to go to the city and back again with Steven in his car seat. So, if you don't mind I would really like for you to get out of here.
Jake: Is Paulina rushing off to meet her boyfriend?
Vicky: I doubt it. And forget it.
Jake: Why? Did you find out she's related to you?
Jake: Vicky, what are we, dieting again?
Vicky: Please. Please, just go home.
Jake: I'm going to wear you down.
Vicky: Fat chance
Jake: Vicky, you're going to need me again. You're going to -- you're going to get in some scheme, you're going to need help, you're going to need an alibi, you're going to realize that every -- of all the men you've known I'm the only one who hasn't written you off, Vicky.
Jake: You're going to come crawling back to me on cracked glass.
Vicky: You're exhausting me. I need a nap.
Jake: So, have you heard from Marley?
Vicky: Is that what this is all about?
Jake: It's a simple yes or no. You've either heard from her or you haven't.
Vicky: You're a nervy little cretin, aren't you? You think I'm going to tell you anything? You almost loused up my parents' marriage. If you think I'm going to let you get your slimy hands on my sister again and really push her away, you are out of your mind.
Jake: C'mon, Vick --
Vicky: I mean it. If Marley has any sense at all, she is out on the prowl for a new man who doesn't have a libido for brains.
[Church bell rings]
Sharlene: And you lied to everyone?
Josie: Don't be angry with me. Not you, too.
Sharlene: I'll try, Josie, but you'd better explain.
Josie: I had to do it. Iris had suspended me. I thought my career was over.
Sharlene: And you thought this would help?
Josie: But it did help. Momma, it was in the paper the very next day. I hadn't had this kind of publicity since my "Sophisticate" layout. It was just what I needed.
Sharlene: Just what you needed?
Josie: Well, it worked. I mean, it was exciting.
Josie: Well, I don't know how else to put it. Oh, and it was working like clockwork until Matthew found out. He just flipped. He lost it.
Sharlene: Josie, what --
Josie: Momma, he doesn't want to see me anymore.
Sharlene: Josie, what about when your apartment was ransacked?
Josie: Oh, I did that. But that time when there was someone in the apartment when Matthew and I came home, that was someone else. A thief, I guess.
Sharlene: I -- I -- no, wait. 'Cause you're talking about this like it was the weather or something. Now, for crying out loud, Josie!
Josie: Momma, I need your help.
Sharlene: What kind of help?
Josie: To get him back!
Sharlene: Josie, did you have an idea how all --
Josie: I have to make him understand. I have to make him see that he still loves me. Now, what am I going to do?
Sharlene: I need to think. I -- I think maybe you should just stay here for a while. Try to get some rest up in your old room.
Josie: I'm too wired to rest.
Sharlene: Try, ok? Because I have to think about this. Now, you go on upstairs and try to get some sleep.
Josie: You're not yelling at me?
Sharlene: It's not because I don't want to. But this is -- this is too serious.
Josie: Thanks for listening to me. I had to -- I had to get this off my chest. And I just wanted to come home for a while. Maybe I will go upstairs and rest for a while.
Sharlene: I think that's a good idea.
Josie: If Matthew calls, will you wake me?
Josie: Thanks, Momma. Thanks a lot.
Sharlene: It's my fault. I did this to her. I don't even -- I don't even know who my daughter is anymore. I -- I've lost her, too. And I did it. I -- [Grunts] Why do I always end up in this dump? [Growls]
Amanda: Matthew, I just heard about you and Josie.
Matt: I don't want to deal with this right now here today.
Amanda: If you want to talk to me --
Matt: You have enough to worry about.
Amanda: Hey, listen to me. I want you to talk to me. I realize I may have been busy or been in one mess or the other, but I'm going to change that. I'm going to make it up to everybody. I'm starting with you.
Matt: Why's that?
Amanda: Well, maybe because I think you're easier to handle than the rest of the family.
Matt: Oh, that's probably right.
Amanda: Yeah, I'm actually glad that you and Josie broke up.
Amanda: Because you got too serious too fast. You almost eloped. At least this way you can break it off with no strings attached.
Matt: There are more strings than I can tell you about, Amanda.
Iris: That is strange. The doorman's sending up your babysitter, Paulina -- Paulina whatever.
Amanda: What's Paulina doing here?
Ken: Do you know, Rachel?
Rachel: What are you doing here?
Paulina: I should be here with this family.
Amanda: Is Steven all right?
Paulina: Yes, he's fine. He's at home with his mother.
Rachel: I think you ought to leave.
Iris: Yes, I'm sorry, dear. This is a private family gathering. You've got no business here.
Paulina: I'm here because this is a private family gathering, Mrs. Wheeler.
Iris: I beg your pardon?
Paulina: Do you want to tell them or should I?
Rachel: I don't want a thing to do with this.
Matt: What is going on here?
Amanda: Paulina, why don't you just say what you came to say?
Paulina: Mac Cory -- was my father.
Amanda: What did you say?
Paulina: He was my father.
Rachel: What do you hope to accomplish?
Iris: You knew about this, Rachel?
Iris: Well, I can see why you kept it to yourself. Obviously, this -- this creature's after Daddy's money.
Paulina: No, that's not true.
Amanda: Oh, wait a minute, everybody. Cool down and let Paulina explain what she means.
Rachel: I know what she means, and I don't care to hear it again.
Paulina: About a year ago, I received a letter from a woman named Maria.
Iris: Maria. Maria who?
Paulina: Maria Hernandez de Silva.
Iris: Oh, that's original.
Paulina: In this letter, she explains that she was my mother and that Mac Cory was my father.
Matt: Wait -- you lived in our house and you didn't tell us this?
Paulina: I was afraid, and I didn't want to tell you until I was absolutely sure.
Iris: You mean you wanted more rehearsal for this lousy performance.
Paulina: Please listen to me.
Amanda: You lived in our house, you took care of our children. We treated you practically like one of the family, and you wait until now to tell us this story?
Paulina: It's not a story. It's my life.
Iris: [Sighs] I can't believe I'm hearing this.
Ken: Why don't you tell everybody what you've learned and then let them make their own determinations?
Iris: You knew about this, too?
Ken: I happened to be there when Paulina told Rachel.
Iris: Oh. Ok. Now this Maria -- whatever her name was -- where is she from?
Paulina: She's from Central America.
Iris: Oh, that's specific.
Paulina: She wrote me this letter right before she died.
Iris: Oh, she's dead, is she?
Iris: What a pity.
Paulina: Don't you care at all about what I'm saying to you?
Iris: No. No, should I?
Paulina: I found out that my parents were alive and then before I could find them, I found that they were both gone. You are my only connection to my father.
Iris: Well, that might be true, but if you think that you can have anything to do with this family, you're off your perky little rocker.
Matt: Paulina, I hope you understand how difficult this is for us to believe.
Paulina: Please, just let me read you something. "If you are ever in great need, you must not be ashamed to seek your father. He is a brilliant and important American named Mackenzie Cory, and I'm writing to him to tell him of your existence." You see?
Iris: For heaven's sake, see what?
Paulina: My mother contacted Mac Cory before he died. He knew about me. I'm sure --
Rachel: Time's up, Paulina. I've had enough.
Iris: I think we've all had enough. Now, before I call security and have you thrown out, I think there is something that you should know. If that woman had contacted my father, we would all of us have known about it. Because he would've told us. At least Rachel would've known, because that is the sort of man that my father is. You see, they didn't have any secrets in their marriage. And as much as I hate to admit it, before he passed away, they were closer than ever. So you see, that letter is a lie. In fact, your whole life is a lie. Now, why don't you just leave?
Paulina: I can't believe this.
Iris: You better believe it. Because you've picked the wrong family for your little ruse. Consider yourself shot down.
Vicky: Man, you are slow on the uptake. I told you to leave hours ago.
Jake: How's my godson?
Vicky: Fine, and don't remind me.
Jake: Come on, Vicky, you can't just cut me out of your life.
Vicky: Says who?
Jake: I do. You and I have too much fun together, Vicky.
Vicky: You messed with my head for a few years, then we both put my sister through hell. Now you've chosen my mother for torture. The way I see it, you have worked your way through the Hudson women, and we would all like just a little break from the action for about 50 years or so.
Jake: You were much nicer when you were married to Dr. Kildare.
Vicky: Would you like me to show you how to open the door and leave?
Jake: He took the edge off you. Now you're so tense, all you have time is to be a royal --
Vicky: Look, I don't have to justify my actions to you. If you would like to sit in my house, then I can do or say whatever I please.
Jake: You are just mad because Jamie's out of town and he doesn't miss you one little bit.
Vicky: How do you know he doesn't miss me?
Jake: Has he called you?
Vicky: We're divorced, remember?
Jake: Well, that wouldn't stop you, would it?
Vicky: If I walked into his little medical conference in my red strapless number and planted one on him, he would fall all over himself.
Jake: You've been thinking about it, haven't you?
Vicky: What -- thinking about what?
Jake: You are going so nuts that you've been thinking about going to France.
Vicky: Maybe. Only to show him that he can't cut loose unless I'm there with the scissors.
Jake: What if you're wrong? What if he's met some French babe with long frog legs and a little conscience?
Vicky: If he did, he wouldn't know what to do with her. Believe me, there is not another woman on this earth who can make Jamie feel the way I do. Trust me.
Marley: Patron saint of home and the family. Why is this happening to me?
Marley's voice: This can't work. He's your sister's husband.
Marley: But when he held me --
Marley's voice: Forget it.
Marley: Jamie is a good man. No wonder Vicky fought so hard to keep him.
Josie: Momma, I -- I couldn't sleep. Matthew didn't call -- did he? Great. Just great. If you think you can just walk out of my life, Matthew Cory, I'm going to get you back. I'm not going to lose you. I'm not losing anything.
Rachel: Ken, I have to go home.
Amanda: You want me to come with you?
Rachel: No. Why don't you stay here make sure Iris doesn't string her up.
Amanda: Thanks a lot. I'll do my best. And you take care of her for me. You hear me?
Ken: I will.
Iris: Now that you have completely ruined one of the most sacred days of my life, I would like you to take your phoney letter and that ridiculous claim and get out of here.
Paulina: Don't you even want to try and find out if what I say is true?
Amanda: Oh, I don't believe this.
Amanda: Paulina, listen. You're forgetting something. We loved Mac Cory, and we knew him. If you were his, he -- and he knew about it, he would've done something about it.
Matt: Amanda's right. He would've told the family. He would've done everything he could to find you. He did it with his son, Sandy. There's no reason why he'd treat this any different.
Iris: We lost one of the greatest men I have ever known a year ago today, and you have done your best to walk all over his memory. If you really knew my father, you would not have the insensitivity to do this!
Paulina: That's just it. I didn't know him. I never had him in my life. You all lost a man who raised you. I lost a man who is my father in name only. I never even got to see him, or talk to him, or have him kiss me good night. But I'll tell you something, I would give anything to have him in this room with me now because I know he would have accepted me. And I am sorry for intruding on your day, but I don't know very much about how a family works or what it feels to be a part of one.
Amanda: It makes one very protective.
Iris: And resistant to interlopers.
Paulina: You know, who taught you to be so cold? Couldn't have been my father.
Iris: Don't you! -- Don't you dare call him your father?
Paulina: You know, everyone I talked to told me that Mac Cory was the kindest, most compassionate man they'd ever known. I find it hard to believe that not one ounce of his goodness rubbed off on any of you. I am a Cory. And I will spend the rest of my life proving it if I have to.
Pearl: I'm sorry, Sharly. I rented the room the day after the two of you left. You look like you meant it when you said you wanted to break the lease.
Sharlene: Yeah, I know, I know. Actually, I had to say that, Pearl, but I want the place back. I -- I --
Pearl: I'm sorry, honey.
Sharlene: Did anybody come by here looking for me?
Pearl: Oh, when I heard footsteps up here, I thought it might be you, so I brought this with me. It's from your friend.
Pearl: The new tenants are having this place painted, and the crew will be due in an hour or so.
Sharlene: Ok, yeah, I'll let myself out.
Pearl: You've been fun to have around, kid. Good luck to you.
Sharlene: You are winning. If it weren't for John, I could handle you. I could handle you. You can't even tie your shoes without me. I won't let you win. I won't. I won't let him win. I won't! It's got to stop now. Stop -
Rachel: I'm giving Mac's clothing to the men's shelter. I need your help in bringing them downstairs.
For just one moment it was real and I could feel that we could make it happen For just one moment you were there and I wasn't scared to let you in through my defenses Looking in your eyes oh, I could see forever and when we finally touched I knew that we were meant to be together for just one moment it was right our hearts lit up the sky together we had it all we knew the answer for just one moment we were free to be just you and me for just one moment just one moment And when you held me I was strong So strong Nothing could go wrong 'cause you were all I needed And when we kissed I came alive -- alive -- felt good inside -- Ooooh.. To find someone I could believe in. All the pieces fit you came to me so sweetly reaching for the moon I gave myself to you completely I gave myself to you completely For just one moment it was right our hearts lit up the sky together we gave our all we took our chances for just one moment we were free to be just you and me for just one moment just one moment If we could fly away would we find the way in our hearts To begin again and learn to live with the greatest gift life's got to give oh Let it never end Let it never end For just one moment it was right our hearts lit up the sky together we had it all we knew the answer for just one moment we were free to be just you and me for just one moment just one moment it was right
Marley's voice: Please go back without me. It was wonderful here, but it has to end. We both have lives to go back to in Bay City. Thank you for a very special memory. Marley.
For just one moment just one moment
