Jake: You switched tapes.

Marley: Yes. I guess you need me around more than you thought you did.

Jake: You switched tapes?

Marley: What's the matter? You look flushed.

Jake: Why would you do something like that?

Marley: Well, see, because you goofed in front of Iris, and I just didn't want to tell you in front of her that that's what you did.

Jake: I goofed up?

Marley: Yes. Honey, you told me that the "Sophisticate" tape was in the tape recorder. But I looked in the box and it was a different tape, so I just switched them.

Jake: I think I'm gonna die.

Marley: What?

Jake: I have to get that tape back.

Marley: Why?

Jake: I got to stop the tape before they duplicate the tape.

Marley: I thought that was the whole point.

Jake: If you let me off the hook, I will forever be your servant.

Marley: Jake, would you mind telling me what's going on here?

Jake: Yes, I know I told Iris that the tape was ready, but --

Marley: What?

Jake: There's a -- there's a problem with the audio track. And -- and I don't want to send out copies to "Sophisticate" with the -- with the problem with the audio track.

Marley: Oh, no. I thought I was doing you a favor.

Jake: Don't worry about it. I just have to stop the tape from being duplicated.

Cass: Hi, stranger.

Stacey: Oh, hey.

Cass: Hi. Sorry I'm late. Hey, you look good.

Stacey: Thanks.

Cass: So, how are your new digs?

Stacey: They're small, but I don't need much to work in.

Cass: Like being out on your own?

Stacey: Well, I haven't had much time to think about it. I've been so busy with this case.

Cass: Look, I'm really glad you called. I hate not gabbing with you anymore. And I hoped that if we could just put every thing aside --

Stacey: To be perfectly frank, Cass, I invited you here to talk business.

Cass: I see.

Stacey: I need to speak to you about the Miller-Hudson case. If that's not acceptable to you, then I will leave.

Taylor: Margaret. This is Margaret, Sharlene. Sharlene Hudson.

Margaret: Hello, Sharlene. Nice to meet you.

Sharlene: Nice to meet you.

Margaret: Oh, why don't you take Sharlene's bag to her room?

Taylor: Margaret's going to help you settle in, Sharlene. But why don't you and John have a moment alone, all right?

Sharlene: Ok.

Sharlene: You ok?

John: Yeah, yeah, I'm ok. How about you?

Sharlene: I'm scared.

John: Me, too. You're going to be fine. We're both going to be fine.

Sharlene: I know. You eat well, ok?

John: I will.

Sharlene: And tell Emma that I told her to make you some of her potato pancakes.

John: Potato pancakes, I know.

Sharlene: And don't think about me all the time, ok?

John: Not a chance.

Taylor: Are you ready Sharlene?

Sharlene: Mm-hmm.

Taylor: I'll let Margaret take you in, and I'll be able to see you in a few minutes, ok?

Sharlene: Don't give up on me.

John: No way. Sharlene.

Sharlene: What?

John: I almost forgot. Just, uh, here's something.

Sharlene: Ok.

Marley: I feel really bad. What can I do?

Jake: No, don't. I -- I just think it's best if I call Donna, because she knows all about the problem.

Marley: Right.

Jake: It's a -- it's a technical problem.

Marley: Ok, all right. You know I -- I find it amazing that you two are working so well together. Who would have thought?

Jake: Not me.

Marley: Why don't I go to the duplicating place and then I can tell them that there's a problem and then I solve the --

Jake: No, no.

Marley: Ok, I'm -- I really feel terrible.

Jake: Don't -- don't worry about it. It's -- I'll take care of it.

Marley: Ok. Call me later?

Jake: Yeah.

Marley: Don't work too hard.

Jake: No, I won't.

Marley: I'm really sorry.

Jake: Come on, come on. Not the answering machine. Uh, yes, Donna, this is Jake. There's a problem with our presentation today at "Sophisticate." You remember the tape with the special audio track? Give me a call as soon as possible, all right?

Vicky: Visions has an audio problem? I thought you guys had a big screening today. Don't -- don't tell me you're gonna end up with egg on your face.

Jake: Where's your mother?

Vicky: She went to Chicago for the day.

Jake: I've got to get out of here.

Vicky: What's the problem?

Jake: Nothing you need to know.

Vicky: Man, you are panicked. You're sweating.

Jake: I'm not up for this today. I'm leaving, ok?

Vicky: But there's a problem with you and Donna, isn't there? Oh, no, even you're not that dumb. Did "Sophisticate" end up with the tape of you and my mother?

Jake: Marley thought she was doing me a favor. She switched tapes. She gave the wrong tape to Iris.

Vicky: Get it back.

Jake: I can't get the tape back. She took it to the lab to get it copied.

Vicky: Oh, terrific.

Jake: I have 45 minutes and everyone at "Sophisticate" --

Vicky: Why are you such an idiot? You should have destroyed the tape, Jake!

Jake: It's exactly what I was doing when she walked in, Vicky! I was doing the tape and the --

Vicky: Don't you dare blame this on Marley. It's your fault. You should've destroyed it after I saw it.

Jake: All right!

Vicky: My father is gonna be at the meeting.

Jake: What the hell is your father doing at a "Sophisticate" meeting?

Vicky: He's a consultant something or other to -- what difference does it make?

Jake: We have 43 minutes.

Vicky: [Sighs] Where's your bike?

Jake: Grab the tape off the thing. Let's go.

Vicky: Ok.

Cass: All right, fine. What is it that you think we need to discuss?

Stacey: Well, given the nature of our relationship, I --

Cass: What, that little brother-sister thing? Don't give it a thought.

Stacey: I'd like to lay some ground rules before we go head to head in the judge's chambers.

Cass: Good idea. I have no intention of going easy on you, you know.

Stacey: I wouldn't expect you to. I know how you work in court.

Cass: I'm sure you've got a few tricks of your own.

Stacey: You know how I work.

Cass: Of course. You learned everything you know from me.

Stacey: How the hell did you fit that big head of yours in the elevator tonight?

Cass: I had a helicopter air drop me on the balcony.

Stacey: I thought maybe.

Cass: Listen, Michael is here. I need to talk to him about something if you don't mind.

Stacey: No, not at all. I have to make a phone call anyway.

Cass: Thanks.

Michael: Stacey.

Stacey: Michael.

Cass: I asked her to give us a minute.

Michael: Well, thank you. How are things going between you two? I mean, it must be kind of awkward being on opposing sides in this case.

Cass: Well, we're ok. Have you spoken to John today?

Michael: No, actually, I haven't spoken to him in a while. Why?

Cass: Well, I was with Frankie before I got here and -- John has told you about Sharlene's problems, right?

Michael: Yeah, more or less. Something wrong?

Cass: He had to have her hospitalized today.

Michael: Oh, no.

Cass: She's at the Morgan Pavilion.

Michael: Psychiatric unit.

Cass: Yeah. Frankie is worried about John. He's apparently not talking much, and she thought you should know.

Michael: [Sighs] Thank you. Look, I'm gonna track him down now.

Cass: I'm sorry about this.

Michael: It's all right. Look, thank you very much for telling me, and thank Frankie for me, too.

Cass: I will.

Michael: Cass, don't let any of this come between you and Stacey. We need our brothers and sisters more than we know.

Sharlene: "Sharlene, here's a little patsy cline to help you fall asleep at night. Close your eyes and remember how we danced in the moonlight while the snow fell around us. I'll be doing the same -- love, John."

Margaret: These are hospital- issued pajamas. Would you like them?

Sharlene: Uh, I brought some of my own. Could I wear my own things?

Margaret: Sure. These are pretty boring, I have to say.

Sharlene: Do -- do you lock the doors?

Margaret: Uh, when specifically requested, yes. Oh, we lock them at night.

Sharlene: I'd like my door locked.

Margaret: Fine, I'll let the staff know. You're not in prison here. You're here to get well.

Sharlene: [Sighs] Uh, no phones I guess. You don't have any phones here?

Margaret: Well, usually after the first 72 hours, we allow a private phone. We feel it helps to not have a lot of contact with friends and family, uh, until you've settled in, you know, feel at home.

Sharlene: It's hard to imagine anyone thinking of this place as home.

Margaret: I know. But if we help you, you'll start to like it. Believe me.

Woman: No, I don't have to do what you say! [Screams]

Margaret: Just a minute. I'll be back in a minute, Sharlene.

Woman: You're not my father! I don't have to do what you say!

Margaret: Ginger, why don't we talk to Dr. Neely and see if he can see you this evening.

Ginger: Why don't you drop dead!

Margaret: Please, take ginger back to the other building, and I'll join you in a moment.

Ginger: Let go!

Margaret: Daphne, may I speak to you for a minute, please?

Daphne: I don't know how she got into this building, Margaret.

Margaret: Well, I know. The fire door next to the staff entrance is still broken. Get someone down here to get to fix it tonight, ok?

Daphne: I'll try, Margaret, but you know how slow maintenance is. They don't listen to me.

Margaret: Fine, then we'll have to pay them a visit personally.

Sharlene: [Groans] No, oh, no. No, no, you checked yourself in here, Sharlene. Don't you leave me to handle it. Oh, no you don't. Don't bow out. Oh, I hate hospitals. I hate them. Damn it, Sharlene. Why do I have to handle everything? Why? You blew it. Now we're stuck in this place. All right. Ok, ok. You're so damned helpless you put me in charge. All right, Sharlene, I'm getting out of this place tonight -- tonight. And you are not -- you're not gonna slip up like this again. You hear me?

Jamie: You know, I still can't be in this room and not think of Mac in this chair.

Amanda: Yeah, I know. Whenever Daddy was here, everything was so ordered and everything made sense.

Jamie: Yeah.

Amanda: Boy, am I glad you're here.

Jamie: It means a lot to me that you asked, Amanda.

Amanda: "Sophisticate's" really put a lot of money behind this tape. It was supposed to be my project, but I haven't done anything with it.

Jamie: I'm sure it'll be fine.

Amanda: Well, I wasn't sure about using Visions as the company. I haven't heard anything bad about Jake and Donna.

Jamie: Well, like I said, it'll be no sweat.

Amanda: I have a confession to make.

Jamie: To me?

Amanda: I asked you to come along for the screening, because I'm not really all that sure that I can tell the difference between good and bad anymore.

Jamie: I doubt that.

Amanda: No, I mean it. Ever since I started doubting Sam and what we had, I've been doubting myself. If I can be that wrong about my own husband, how can I trust myself when it comes to business or -- or raising a child?

Jamie: You sure could use a shot of self-esteem.

Amanda: Hey, there's nobody to blame for the end of my marriage except me, and that's an awfully difficult thing to try and live with. Sometimes I feel like a total washout.

Iris: Ooh, am I interrupting something?

Jamie: Iris.

Iris: Hi, Amanda. Hi, Jamie. Are you staying for the meeting?

Jamie: If it's all right.

Iris: Well, of course it's all right. I'd love an unbiased opinion.

Amanda: I was hoping we'd be able to view the tape before the board got here.

Iris: Unfortunately, it's being duplicated, and there's been some sort of hold up in the lab. Looks like we might have to entertain the board for half an hour.

Jamie: Iris, did you get my message about Paulina's blood test results?

Iris: Yes, I did, but I'm not concerned.

Amanda: Jamie even said it doesn't prove anything.

Iris: Exactly. That girl is a nuisance. That's all she is. And if she doesn't stop causing this family trouble, I'm going to teach her what trouble is all about. Anyway, are you ready for the presentation?

Amanda: Yes, I think so.

Iris: Great. Well, I'll see you both in an hour or so.

Jamie: Ok, Iris.

Amanda: I'm not ready at all.

Jamie: Sure you are.

Amanda: What do you say we go to Tops and have a big Mississippi mud pie?

Jamie: If you can eat it in half an hour.

Amanda: Watch me.

Jamie: Let's go.

Stacey: [Sighs]

Cass: My kind of business dinner, I tell you.

Stacey: Hmm?

Cass: You call me to talk business and then you don't talk. I feel like I'm eating alone.

Stacey: Cass, look, I don't want to make you lose your appetite.

Cass: Oh, really? And how would you do that?

Stacey: By giving you a preview of what you're going up against in court.

Cass: Stacey, you're a good lawyer, but you're not me and you don't stand a chance.

Stacey: Oh, is that how you feel?

Cass: Yeah, that's how I feel.

Stacey: Well, I find that very interesting considering that I'm representing the birth parents. And in a large percentage of those types of hearings, the birth parents regain custody, Cass.

Cass: I never said it was going to be easy.

Stacey: Well, thank you for admitting that much.

Cass: So, I guess you think that Eve and Toby Miller are clean?

Stacey: What's your point?

Cass: They better squeak like Ken and Barbie in a car wash, or I'm gonna nail them to the wall for putting Michael and Donna through this.

Stacey: Oh, that's right. You've got that big house to renovate, don't you? You could use Michael Hudson's money.

Cass: You want this to be a dirty fight?

Stacey: No.

Cass: Then represent your clients and stop going at me personally.

Stacey: You're the one who said you wanted to play hardball, Cass.

Cass: That's right, but that has nothing to do with you and me. You're the one who's making this personal.

Stacey: Ok, so what do you have that's gonna hold up in court anyway?

Cass: The law -- the one that protects children from negligence and abuse.

Stacey: What are you talking about?

Cass: Take a hard look at yourself, Stacey, and then -- then take a good long look at your clients. And if you still can stomach the view, go for it. But you're not going to win, believe me.

Sharlene: [Whispering] Damn it. Grant, I know you're there. It's me. Pick up.

Grant: Sharly, is that you?

Amanda: Marley, hello.

Marley: Hi.

Amanda: Are you alone?

Marley: Yes, Jake had an emergency with the promotional video, so -- aren't you supposed to be there?

Amanda: Yeah, I guess that's why it's delayed for a while. I, um, dragged Jamie down here so he could watch me drown my sorrows in chocolate.

Marley: Oh, I'm sorry. I know how it feels when a marriage breaks up.

Amanda: Uh, can we join you?

Jamie: Maybe Marley doesn't want company.

Amanda: Oh.

Marley: Of course. Sit down, please. How's Alli?

Amanda: She's, um, she's ok. She misses her Daddy.

Marley: Oh, I'll bet. At least she has a lot of people who love her around her.

Jamie: You should come around the house and see the kids.

Marley: I was there today.

Amanda: You were?

Marley: Yes, I was babysitting for Steven.

Jamie: Right, I mean, you should come again. Marley is quite a swimmer -- most of the time.

Amanda: I think it is so wild that the two of you ended up in the same hotel in Europe.

Jamie: It was wild all right.

Marley: How's -- how's Sam? Have you heard from him?

Amanda: No. No.

Marley: Well, you know I didn't think I could ever manage a civil sentence with Jake when we first broke up, but it'll pass if you let it.

Amanda: You said that you were gonna have dinner with him tonight?

Marley: Jake, yes. Well, we're taking things slowly.

Amanda: Are you thinking about maybe giving your marriage another try?

Marley: Maybe.

Amanda: Well, that's great. I don't think I could ever trust Sam enough to give it another try.

Jamie: Vicky and I have taken a crack or two at it. We're a motley crew, aren't we? [Laughter]

Amanda: I guess so. I really don't know if I would -- if I would know how to be single again.

Jamie: You really never are once you've been married.

Amanda: I think -- I just remembered I've got to make a phone call.

Jamie: Now?

Amanda: Yeah, I want to call Alli and wish her good night. Excuse me.

Jamie: Yeah.

Marley: Mm-hmm. You are about as subtle as a freight train.

Jamie: I always did wear my heart on my sleeve.

Marley: What does she know?

Jamie: Nothing.

Marley: Well, she thinks something now.

Jamie: I didn't do a thing. If someone gave us away, it must have been you.

Michael: Did you just get back? How's she doing?

John: [Sighs] I thought I could keep it from getting this far. I thought I could help her avoid this, but...

Michael: Hey, man, you don't get to blame yourself here. You didn't make this happen. Blaming yourself is not gonna help you, and it's certainly not gonna do Sharlene any good.

John: She was trying to be so brave when I left her. I have seen her afraid a lot in these last few weeks, but this was just awful.

Michael: Well, she's in good hands now. Morgan is a terrific facility. She's gonna get help, John.

John: Yeah, I know that she'll be safe there.

John: To tell you the truth, Mike, I can't think of anything that's been harder for me to do in my life than to watch her walk away from me into that room. It was as if a piece of my life was just slipping away, and there wasn't a damn thing I could do about it.

Michael: And you know you're gonna have to let go completely in order for her to get well, don't you?

John: You know when all this started, Mike? The night before we were gonna get married. She kept this in check for almost 20 years. And then the night she was going to marry me -- [Sighs] Unbelievable.

Michael: John, I'm here, all right? I'm here if you need me.

John: I know.

Michael: You don't keep this in. Don't keep it in.

John: I don't know how else to be right now.

Michael: Sharlene is being taken care of, and you're gonna be ok.

John: I hope so.

Michael: I know so. I'll be around.

[Phone rings]

John: Hello.

Vicky: Uncle John, it's Vicky.

John: Vicky, what can I do for you?

Vicky: Well, I just talked to my Dad's secretary, and she said that he was out there with you on the farm.

John: Yes, I'm sorry, you just missed him.

Vicky: Oh, no.

John: Listen, is there anything I can do for you?

Vicky: No, I -- I was just going to talk him out of a meeting and into dinner with me.

John: Sorry.

Vicky: That's all right. Thanks, John. Bye. You don't have the tapes?

Jake: They're in processing.

Vicky: Well, tell them to stop.

Jake: I can't. It's computer coded. It needs to run its cycle.

Vicky: Jake, my father is gonna be at that meeting. We have to do something.

Sharlene: I don't belong here.

Grant: Now, Dr. Benson and John have asked me to back off.

Sharlene: Don't you see, Grant, they're trying to kill me.

Grant: No, no. John said that you would feel that way, but, Sharly, John loves you very, very much.

Sharlene: No, he doesn't. He loves someone else who has nothing to do with me, Grant. I love you. I've never loved anybody before. Do you love me? Please, Grant.

Grant: Yes, of course I love you. But I -- I don't know what to do.

Sharlene: Come here now.

Grant: I can't.

Sharlene: There's a broken fire door next to the staff entrance in building number three. I'm on the second floor.

Grant: Sharly, I can't break into the hospital.

Sharlene: Grant, what if this is our last chance?

Grant: What do you mean?

Sharlene: They brought me here to get rid of me. Grant, there's me and there's her. And I'm alive now, but they'll try to kill me here. Please, can't you understand and believe in me?

Grant: I'll be there as fast as I can.

Sharlene: I love you. Hurry.

Margaret: Who were you talking to, Sharlene?

Sharlene: I was trying to call my doctor.

Margaret: Sharlene, Dr. Benson isn't in the building now, and you're not permitted to use the staff phone unattended.

Sharlene: I'm sorry, Margaret, but it was an emergency.

Margaret: Uh, what kind of emergency?

Sharlene: Well, I -- I felt Sharly and saw -- it's very complicated.

Margaret: Why don't you tell me about it?

Sharlene: No, really, I need to see Dr. Benson.

Margaret: I can call her service.

Sharlene: Oh, no, no, no. See, actually, I have an appointment with her early tomorrow morning, and I think I'll just try to hang on to the feeling until then. I'll remember it. I'm sorry if I broke any rules. I'll try harder, Margaret, I promise.

Sharlene: Nurse Ratched. I don't suppose you thought to pack me any cigarettes, did you, Sharlene honey? Oh, no, nothing for Sharly.

Sharlene: No. No! You can't be here. You can't be here. Grant is coming to see me. You can't be here. He's mine. Grant is mine. You just forget about him, Sharlene. He's history. And so are you, hopefully.

>> Sweet dreams of you every night I go through why can't I forget you and start my life anew instead of...

Taylor: John?

John: Taylor, is Sharlene all right?

Taylor: Oh, she's fine. I came to see you.

John: I'm sorry, I didn't even hear your car pull up.

Taylor: I know. Would you like to talk to me about anything? Do you have any questions you think I could answer?

John: No, thanks. I'm pretty much talked out. I appreciate the offer, though.

Taylor: You know, I can't begin to fully understand your pain, John. But I do know about loss, and it's a dreadful thing to experience. And you are in a state of loss now. It's not necessarily permanent, and for that we should be very grateful.

>> The whole night through

John: You know, Dr. Benson, you have become the most important person in our lives, yet we know very little about you.

Taylor: It's one of the tenets of my chosen profession, doctor. Boundaries have to be observed.

John: Ah, yes, of course. What do you say we break a few boundaries? Tell me about yourself. Are you married? Do you have a family?

Taylor: My husband died while I was in med school -- leukemia.

John: Taylor, I'm sorry.

Taylor: For a while I never thought things would get better, but they did. Time really is a healer.

John: Sometimes.

Taylor: Have faith in Sharlene. Have faith in us. We can help her to get better, John. She's a remarkable woman.

John: I'm glad you're able to see that side of her.

Taylor: And very strong. Don't underestimate her.

John: Oh, I never have.

Taylor: She also is very aware of your love for her. I know she turned away from you after this incident with Grant, but your love brought her back. She's a very lucky woman.

John: Why do you say that?

Taylor: Well, to have found someone like you is her great good fortune.

>> ...For feelin' so lonely I'm crazy, crazy...

Jamie: So, Jake stood you up.

Marley: You are infuriating. Do you know that?

Jamie: Well, I'll bet that your Mom and Dad are glad that you're back in Bay City.

Marley: Yes, they -- they seem to be.

Jamie: Are you here to stay?

Marley: It all depends.

Jamie: On what?

Marley: On a lot of things.

Jamie: Like --

Marley: Like, why don't you mind your own business?

Michael: Hey, honey. How are you doing?

Marley: Ok, how are you?

Michael: Jamie, welcome back.

Jamie: Thank you.

Marley: What are you doing here?

Michael: Well, actually, I was hoping I could catch up with your mother before I went to Cory's, but she doesn't seem to be here.

Jamie: At the "Sophisticate" screening?

Michael: Yeah, right.

Jamie: I'm going myself. I stopped here with Amanda just to kill some time before it starts.

Amanda: Hi, Michael.

Michael: Well, hi, Amanda.

Amanda: You must be excited about tonight, huh?

Michael: Actually, I -- I am kind of, yeah.

Amanda: I heard the video is very good.

Michael: Well, that's what I hear. I can't wait to see Donna's work.

Jake: He won't give me a copy of the tape.

Vicky: Why not?

Jake: [Whispering loudly] He says I need some kind of authorization from Iris!

Vicky: Just let me handle this.

Vicky: Excuse me. I understand that there is a bit of confusion about who can take possession of that tape you're copying?

Man: No confusion. I need the blue slip.

Vicky: The blue slip.

Man: No releases without a blue slip.

Vicky: Oh, yes, I understand the standard procedures about the red tape, and blue, but you see, this is a totally different situation. Is -- is that tape still, uh, being copied? And is it almost ready?

Man: They're ready when they're ready.

Vicky: Oh, yes, I understand that seeing that, um, I'm the producer. Did you hear me? Mr. Bean, I am the producer of that tape you're copying. I need the tape, Bean!

Mr. Bean: No blue slip, no tape.

[Bell rings]

Vicky: Ok, what should we do next?

Jake: Oh, leaving town right about now sounds good.

Vicky: You know, you and Donna deserve this, but I am gonna do this for you, for Michael, and Marley.

Jake: Cool it, chick. Everything's under control.

John: Here you are.

Taylor: Thanks. Mm.

John: [Sighs] You know, when I first started seeing Sharlene, I remember driving down that road, corn fields on the right and the left, and this big old house here at the end. I remember thinking to myself the last place in the world I would ever find what I really wanted in my life would've been right next door to me all along.

Taylor: [Laughs]

John: That's my Mom's farm right over there.

Taylor: Ah, you're kidding.

John: Hmm. When Sharlene and I got married, I thought my Mom would bust a gut she was so happy.

Taylor: Never thought it would happen.

John: [Chuckles] Not with this son.

Taylor: You waited a long time for Sharlene.

John: Yeah. Sharlene and I planned out our whole lives together. Before she came along, I never planned a day beyond tomorrow. She's the only person I ever met who made me want to know what was ahead, instead of regretting what I left in the past. Do you think I'm handling this all right?

Taylor: How do you mean?

John: I mean, with Grant and Sharly.

Taylor: I think you are doing the only thing that could be expected of you given the circumstances.

John: Taylor, when I walked in on them -- [Sighs] I can't explain to you the feelings that I had. I -- I just didn't know what to think. I knew who it was. I knew it was Sharly. But then again, it wasn't. That was my wife and she was with another man. I couldn't believe my eyes. I thought I had lost her forever and I kept calling her name -- "Sharlene, Sharlene," over and over and over again, hoping that would help. And I haven't stopped agonizing about it since.

John: You know, without her here, I don't know, I feel like a stranger in this house. I -- I feel like I don't belong. I don't think I belong anywhere without her.

Taylor: John, that's all going to change. I promise you. You see, as you see Sharlene making progress, you're not gonna feel so helpless.

John: You know, I swore to myself once that I would never let anyone matter to me that much.

Taylor: Sharlene got to you, didn't she?

John: She's the only one I've ever let in.

Taylor: I know. I never told this to anyone, but when my husband was very sick, it was towards the end and he could hardly string three words together, he made me bend down close to his face and he said to me, "fill in the space for me."

John: And have you?

Taylor: I keep trying. But you've got to do that for Sharlene. So that when she comes home, you can show her what you found out about yourself, about her, about the two of you together. You might be surprised how good it can be.

John: There was a time when I didn't think things could get any better. And then lately, there's been a lot of times when I was sure that things couldn't get any worse.

Taylor: Maybe when all this is over, you're gonna find some peaceful place right in the middle. It'll just take some time, John.

Taylor: It's a beautiful night, don't you think?

John: Yep, even if it rains.

Taylor: Mm.

Stacey: Yeah, I need to see you right away. Well, I think that Cass is on to something, and we need to figure out what it is. Just come down here immediately. Ok, thanks a lot. Bye. Hi, Michael.

Michael: Stacey, how are you?

Stacey: I'm fine, thanks.

Michael: Taking care of business, I assume.

Stacey: Yep.

Michael: Stacey, I want you to know that I understand what you're trying to do. I would just hope that you would try to understand what Donna and I are doing.

Stacey: Well, you know, I thought I did understand. But apparently I was wrong, because I didn't think you would use your money for coercion.

Michael: Coercion? Well, Stacey, if you're gonna make an accusation like that in court, I suggest you have some proof to back it up.

Stacey: I really don't have anything more to say to you.

Michael: Stacey. Stacey, talk to me. You don't know me. You think you do, but you don't.

Stacey: I know all I need to know about you.

Michael: No, you seem to have an image of me as the guy in the black hat. And you seem to have some need to see the Millers as the good guys.

Stacey: Well, if I don't see them as the good guys, then nobody is going to, except maybe the judge.

Michael: Well, if you're right, and if you do win this case for the Millers, if we lose Mikey -- the day that happens, I want you there. I want you there to see the pain that you have caused Donna and Mikey and myself. It will be little consolation, but it will be something. See you in court.

Marley: I should go to him.

Jamie: He's gone, Marley.

Amanda: This has got to be difficult for you to watch.

Marley: It's tearing my family apart. There's nothing I can do.

Amanda: Jamie, you're friends with Stacey, can't you say something to her?

Jamie: I could try, but I can't promise anything. I've never seen her like that before.

Amanda: Oh, we've got to get back to Cory.

Jamie: Oh, sure.

Amanda: Marley, why don't you come with us?

Marley: Oh, no, I couldn't.

Amanda: Sure, you could. You two could be my support team. And you would get a chance to see how Jake and Donna work.

Jamie: Oh, Marley's got pretty strict taste. She might shoot down your whole project.

Marley: I would love to come.

Amanda: Great. Well, then let's get the check and get out of here.

Marley: Terrific.

Jake: Hurry up before Bean --

Vicky: Where is the label to this thing?

Jake: This is it! This is it.

Vicky: Oh, let me see this.

Jake: All right, that's the master, where's the dupe?

Vicky: Oh.

Jake: No arguments, Bean. Where is the dupe?

Mr. Bean: All 20 copies went out -- just went out.

Jake: 20 --

Vicky: [Gasps] This is insane.

Jake: Look, we can still make it if we rush. Let's go.

Grant: No, no, no. No, this is wrong.

Sharlene: Oh, no, no, no. Honey, it's not. It's not. Don't listen to what they're telling you, I'm fine. I know what I'm doing.

Grant: Now, are you saying to me that you are not sick?

Sharlene: Do you -- you know what they do to you in places like this? Do you?

Grant: Sharly.

Sharlene: Emma -- Emma, that's my sister, Grant. She put me away once before, and it damn near killed me. See, she can't stand me. She can't stand that I'm smarter than her, that I'm stronger, so she locked me away. And the doctors, they gave me drugs and they gave me shock treatments. Don't let them do that to me again, please.

Grant: Now listen, sweetheart, I had this place checked out. It's -- it's the finest psychiatric clinic in the whole state.

Sharlene: I need you. I have from the start. Don't you wanna be with me? Don't you?

Grant: Yes, yes, of course I do.

Sharlene: Take me with you. Take me with you. You take me with you. We could walk out that door and -- and only look ahead. There's so much out there for you and I to live and to do. Grant, you've been given a second chance. You've been given a chance to beat that disease and live the life that you want to live. Now, don't I deserve the same thing? Come on, baby. Baby, this is our last chance to be together. Don't leave me here to die alone.

Stacey: I need you to be straight with me.

Eve: Ok.

Stacey: Is there anything at all that you haven't told me?

Eve: Like what?

Stacey: Eve.

Eve: I -- I got a new job.

Stacey: Doing what?

Eve: Waiting tables at Sassy's.

Stacey: Sassy's. That's what Cass was talking about. Why did you do that?

Eve: It was the only place I could find a job. Look, I know some really bad stuff goes on there, but I swear I'm just serving --

Stacey: That isn't the point, Eve. The point is they're gonna turn everything around. They're gonna make it seem like you're some back-room girl.

Eve: What are we gonna do?

Stacey: Something tells me that Donna Hudson has skeletons in her closet that are gonna make your job at Sassy's look like volunteer work in a war zone. If she's hiding something, I'm gonna find it.

Iris: They shouldn't be long. Oh, here we are. Well, thank you. Thank heavens for that. I just wanted to tell you that -- sorry, we have a little problem here. We had a problem in the lab duplicating these. I wanted to make sure that each of you had one, though, so that you could study them at your leisure when you got home. We were expecting a representative from Visions, but I don't think we'll wait for them. They're going to be too long. If you have any questions when this is finished, please, feel free to ask Amanda Fowler. Now, let's just relax and enjoy it.

Vicky: Oh!

Jake: Whew.
