Rachel: Wait a minute. I think that they have rules about this on -- on flights.
Ken: I don't care. Rachel, I never thought I'd ever feel this way again about anyone. You believe me, don't you? Rachel?
Rachel: Here I am. You were sleeping.
Ken: [Sighs] Oh. It's been a long day. Where were you?
Rachel: Uh, phoning Hilda, having her get everybody together.
Ken: For a reading of the codicil.
Ken: Kind of short notice.
Rachel: I think everybody will be there, especially Iris and Paulina. Fasten your seat belts. It's gonna be a bumpy night.
Cass: Oh, those are really nice, Michael. Thank you.
Frankie: Thank you very much.
Michael: Our pleasure. Actually, I was thinking that maybe we could use them to toast with after Cass wins our case.
Frankie: All right.
Marley: Good idea.
Matt: When is the trial?
Cass: Actually, it's tomorrow, which means we should probably cut this evening short.
Felicia: Oh, no, no, no.
Cass: Oh, yes, yes, yes.
Felicia: Oh, good. You made it. Come on.
Felicia: Hi, honey.
Cass: Well, uh, this is quite a surprise.
Frankie: Why does Caroline keep coming to my engagement parties? She hates my guts.
Matt: Felicia called and asked if she could bring her over. I didn't know what to say, so --
Frankie: Felicia did this.
Caroline: This is for you, honey.
Cass: A two-page telegram. It's from Cecile.
Frankie: Ooh, this party just keeps getting better, doesn't it?
Marley: Cecile DePoulignac.
Jamie: My ex-wife.
Marley: My favorite person.
Jake: One of your ex-wives.
Cass: Uh, honey, how did Cecile know about this?
Caroline: Just like she told me.
Frankie: See, Felicia's got this chemical imbalance. Her potassium is low, something like that. That's why she's doing this to me.
Matt: Not enough bananas.
Felicia: Now, wait a minute. Is this not a party to celebrate your last few days as a bachelor?
Jake: Yes, yes.
Cass: Yeah, so?
Felicia: Well, I thought it would be appropriate to get a few of Cass' old girlfriends -- myself included.
Marley: Oh, my goodness.
Reuben: So you saw the tape?
Stacey: He had a copy of it in his briefcase.
Reuben: And this is the same tape that Jake and Vicky's been freaking out about?
Stacey: Well, according to Lucas, yeah. I sure would like to know what's on it. And that's why I invited him over here to have a little meeting.
[Knock at door]
Reuben: Well, I hope this works.
Stacey: That's him. Yeah, I hope it works, too. It could be important. [Clears throat]
Reuben: Yo, what's up, Luke?
Lucas: Hi, Reuben. What is it, something new with my case?
Stacey: Oh, no, no, not at all. I just got your deposition back from the type service, and I wanted you to sign it. Here's 5 copies. There you go. Sign away.
Lucas: You brought me all the way over here just for that?
Stacey: Yeah, why not?
Lucas: Well, I'm gonna read them before I sign them.
Stacey: Oh, sure, sure. Yeah, of course. Yeah, read away.
Lucas: All right, now, why did you really bring me over here?
Stacey: Well, you caught me on this one. I -- it's just that I, um, after seeing you today, you know, it -- it got me to thinking and I started -- you know, I'm starting out here. And I could use a big corporate client to help foot some of my bills, that's basically it.
Lucas: Sounds good to me.
Stacey: It does?
Lucas: Yeah. Yeah, I'll -- I'll put in a word with Iris for you, ok?
Stacey: Oh, thanks. Uh, Lucas.
Lucas: Yeah, what's the matter?
Stacey: Nothing is the matter, exactly, I --
Reuben: Well, what she means is -- you told me that you needed background, so --
Stacey: Oh, my God. Yeah, that's it.
Reuben: So before she sees --
Stacey: Yeah, I need --
Lucas: I can get you some background. Don't worry about it.
Stacey: Oh, you know what? I don't want to waste your time. So, that promotional tape -- why don't you just lend that to me and I'll take a look at it and it could fill me in on what's going on with the company.
Lucas: Fine, I've got it right in here.
Stacey: Oh. Great, thank you.
Lucas: Oh, oh, you know what? I haven't seen this thing yet. Why don't we watch it together?
Cass: "I love it out here on the coast, networking like mad, making fabulous contacts."
Frankie: Fabulous contacts.
Cass: Now, for those of you who don't know Cecile, let me translate. She's absolutely flat broke and has no prospects whatsoever.
Jake: That's a two-page congratulatory letter, and all she's talked about is herself.
Jamie: It's from Cecile, you thought she'd talk about someone else?
Cass: Wait a second. Wait a second. This is about Frankie and me.
Frankie: Oh, goodie, goodie, goodie. Here we go.
Cass: "And congratulations to Frankie. She must be quite special if she's taken you away from the banquet table to a lifetime of dinners for two."
Frankie: Is that a compliment? That doesn't -- that doesn't sound like a compliment to me.
Cass: There's more. There's more.
Felicia: Wait a minute. How did she pay for this telegram?
Cass: Hey, that's my credit card number at the bottom.
Frankie: We are cutting that card right now.
Cass: "I've called Felicia" --
Felicia: Yeah, collect.
Cass: Of course. "And asked that she remind you on this special night of the grand and glorious past that will soon be gone but not forgotten. Au revoir, cheri. Ciao, baby, Cecile." And all that.
Frankie: Oh, my goodness.
Cass: So you planned all of this, huh?
Felicia: I did.
Cass: You Twinkie in blue.
Felicia: Now, Cecile may think of this as the grand and glorious past, but since I was in on the past myself, I do look at it somewhat differently.
Cass: A major role.
Felicia: Yes, well, all of us girls here feel that we have contributed to the education of --
Frankie: Oh, and you did a good job, too. You really did.
Felicia: So when he found someone, someone perfect for him, he would know it for sure. So, we're all here to celebrate what Cass found in Frankie.
Frankie: Thank you very much, all of you.
Cass: That's very sweet.
Felicia: And of course, to also have a little fun with the groom.
Cass: Oh, all right.
Frankie: All of us at the same time?
Cass: Everybody in the pool.
Felicia: No, no, no, their turn.
Caroline: I hope you like them.
Cass: "Them"? Should I open this now?
Marley: Come on, open it. Let's see what's inside. Come on.
Caroline: Isn't that what married people wear?
Frankie: That is cute, Caroline. That's very cute.
Felicia: Now, the girls and I were reminiscing earlier tonight --
Felicia: And we thought we would share some of those memories with you.
Cass: Oh, no, no, no. That won't be -- that won't be necessary, girls.
Frankie: I want to hear this.
Felicia: Didi, go ahead, you start. Go on.
Jamie: Who? I'm sorry, I can't hear you.
Cass: No, you see, if I hadn't left you stranded in order to get to that poker game, you never would've met Jamie and you wouldn't have all those --
Caroline: Oh, please.
Felicia: You know what -- you know what? He's right. We're all so lucky to have loved --
Frankie: Me, too. Me, too.
Jake: Frankie is really being a good sport about all this.
Marley: Well, that's because she knows what she has with Cass is real. See, now, if you have love like that, the past doesn't matter.
Jamie: I agree. That was Vicky on the phone. She's not gonna be able to come.
Marley: Oh, that's -- that's too bad.
Felicia: Now, Cecile used to live in the same building I did. She was one floor, and I was on another.
Felicia: He used to get into the elevator and --
Cass: Stop! Stop! Don't talk about the elevator. No, don't talk about the elevator.
Iris: It's all right, Hilda, I can wait in here. Thank you. Your mother had Hilda call me and ask me to come over.
Amanda: Yes, I know. She spoke to me, too. Mom's plane should be getting in right about now.
Iris: Well, thank heavens for that.
Iris: Listen, is there a party going on here or something?
Amanda: It's for Cass and Frankie. I didn't feel like going.
Iris: Well, I can understand that. Life hasn't exactly been easy lately.
Amanda: No, it hasn't.
Iris: What with waiting for this codicil to be read, I mean -- well, perhaps Rachel's found out something and --
Amanda: I don't --
Iris: Oh, no. I don't believe it.
Amanda: What are you doing here?
Paulina: Please don't start yelling at me, either one of you. Mrs. Cory had Hilda call me and ask me to come here.
Paulina: I guess we'll find that out when she gets here, Iris.
Iris: Poor Rachel. She obviously has developed some nasty virus or something.
Paulina: Why don't you start facing facts? Why would Mrs. Cory want me to be here unless I was mentioned in that document?
Iris: Perhaps so you can find out once and for all that you have nothing to do with this family and that you have absolutely nothing to do with that will.
Paulina: You're awfully sure of yourself for someone who just might find herself cut out tonight.
Iris: Whatever happens tonight, you will be very sorry for what you have just said.
Amanda: Paulina and Iris, both of you, Mom is gonna be here in less than an hour, and then we'll find out exactly what the truth is.
Ken: [Sighs] We'll be in Chicago soon.
Rachel: The Cory helicopter will be meeting us there.
Ken: Rachel, are you sure you're not rushing things?
Rachel: To read the codicil tonight?
Rachel: There's been enough suspense.
Ken: But what did you really learn in San Cristobal?
Rachel: Enough. It's time Mac's wishes were honored.
Ken: Rachel, I -- I want to say something to you, and I want you to promise me that you'll think about it.
Rachel: All right.
Ken: [Sighs] Look, the codicil was addressed to you. If you chose to refuse to acknowledge it, you know, nobody would challenge you.
Rachel: I know that. A part of me wishes I had never found it.
Ken: I'm sure.
Rachel: Everybody I love has been through enough. This is just gonna cause more problems.
Ken: Then tell Cass to throw it out. Pretend you never found it.
Rachel: I can't do that. Everything is in motion now. We'll be landing soon.
Felicia: Now, the thing that is different about Cass than the other men who have passed through my life is that somehow, some way, we became friends.
Felicia: Best friends. That is the lovely thing about you, darling. This is definitely a man who likes women.
Cass: Just slightly.
Felicia: I tried to put it as nicely as I could.
Cass: I know.
Felicia: Thank you all for coming.
Cass: Jamie, thank you. This was unusual and --
Jamie: Yeah, it was my pleasure. My pleasure. Frankie, I hope you didn't mind all these girls being here.
Frankie: Oh, no, not at all. Just so long as we never have to see any of them again.
Cass: Well, think of it as being at the county fair and walking off with the prize hog.
Frankie: Yeah, that's exactly how I'll think of it.
Cass: Well, you don't have to think about it too much. Listen, I have to say something to Felicia. Would you give me a minute?
Frankie: I'll talk to Didi.
Cass: Good. Give her a squeeze from me.
Cass: Thanks again, Jamie.
Cass: Got a minute?
Felicia: For you, I got two.
Cass: Go for a dip?
Cass: No? Race you?
Cass: God, this was weird.
Cass: Well, when you started talking about the old days...
Felicia: Why, honey?
Cass: Well, thinking about the guy that I was then.
Felicia: As opposed to the sterling character you are now?
Cass: Yeah, right.
Felicia: You know, it's funny. Sometimes I do think about those days.
Cass: Me, too. I'm so glad we're friends.
Felicia: Best friends.
Cass: Best friends. And Frankie knows all that, and it's ok with her, you know?
Felicia: Oh, honey, I would've never done this tonight if I thought I would hurt her in any way.
Cass: She's a little hard on herself. But me -- I don't know why, but she accepts me totally.
Felicia: [Sighs] You are lucky.
Felicia: Yeah, and you're gonna be so happy, I know it.
Cass: I wish Wallingford could have met Frankie.
Felicia: I do, too. You know, sometimes when I open a new chapter in my life or close one, boy, I'd love to share it with him.
Cass: Losing him, that was -- well, we've had some hard times.
Felicia: Mm-hmm. That's a fact.
Cass: But we've known love and friendship, that's as good as it gets.
Felicia: Oh, we're lucky, aren't we?
Cass: Yes, we are.
Felicia: Be happy, honey, ok?
Amanda: Hilda didn't mention to Mom that you were having a party so there's really, you know, nothing we can do.
Jamie: It's ok.
Matt: Party's almost over anyway.
Iris: Well, perhaps we can encourage everybody to leave before Rachel gets back.
Jamie: I don't think there will be any problem.
Iris: Good, because I've already waited too long for this night.
Caroline: I feel bad about the present.
Caroline: It's bit a cheeky, I know.
Frankie: Oh, it's all right, Caroline. I know how you felt about Cass.
Caroline: I really did care about him, you know?
Frankie: I know.
Caroline: I would've -- I would've done anything for him, and you -- you didn't do anything. I guess it doesn't really matter now, does it?
Frankie: Is it too much to ask if there are no hard feelings?
Caroline: There's no hard feelings, Frank. Not too many.
Jamie: I just spoke to Cass. My mom's gonna be back in a little bit and would like Cass to stay until she gets here.
Frankie: Oh, is there a problem?
Jamie: No, just some family matters they want to clear up.
Frankie: Ok, uh, I'll have to use a phone to call the cab.
Caroline: I can give you a lift.
Frankie: Oh, no, no, Caroline.
Caroline: I'm giving Felicia one anyway.
Frankie: Oh, no, I wouldn't want to put you out, it's ok.
Caroline: It's not a problem. In fact, I wouldn't mind seeing this old house that you bought.
Frankie: Oh, you'd like to see it, huh?
Caroline: Of course.
Frankie: Um --
Caroline: So why don't you go and speak to Cass and let's get going, hey?
Frankie: I'll see you.
Frankie: Let's go.
Michael: So, what are you guys doing tonight?
Marley: Oh, I think we're gonna play it by ear.
Michael: Well, in that case, why don't you come over to the house? We'll put Mikey to bed, make some dinner, hang out a little bit. I know that Donna would love to see you, Marley.
Marley: Oh, all right. What do you think, Jake?
Jake: Actually, I have quite a few things to do tonight.
Marley: Oh, come on, I'm sure Donna would love to see us both.
Jake: Well, if you want me to.
Michael: Ok, great.
Marley: Do you think I'll have to testify tomorrow?
Michael: To tell you the truth, honey, I really don't know. Cass is the only one who'd know anything about that.
Marley: Well, I do have to say one more good-bye. I'll be right back.
Michael: Jake, I do hope you know what you're doing.
Jake: What do you mean?
Michael: I mean that Marley spent a lot of time trying to recover from last year. I don't want to see her hurt again.
Jake: Well, she just invited me.
Michael: I realize that.
Jake: Michael, I realize our past is a mess, but I am seeing Marley because she was my wife and I love her.
Michael: Well, if you'll forgive me, Jake, I've heard that out of your mouth before. So, I'm just gonna tell you if you hurt her again, you're gonna have to answer to me.
Stacey: Uh, Lucas, I'd -- I'd like to watch that tape by myself. Do you mind?
Lucas: No, no. Anyway, I have to read this statement before I call my contact in Washington. I want to do that tonight.
Stacey: Why, have you heard something?
Lucas: Well, the word on the street is that the committee is gonna make a decision on my case very soon.
Stacey: Well, I didn't hear anything about that.
Lucas: You don't have my kind of contacts.
Stacey: Lucas, keep me informed on this stuff.
Lucas: Oh, sure, of course I will.
Reuben: [Whispering] Get the tape.
Stacey: Hmm? Oh, Lucas, the tape.
Lucas: Oh, yeah.
Stacey: You accidentally put it back in there. Thank you.
[Knock at door] Hello?
Man: I'm Dale Schrader, federal marshal.
Stacey: Yeah, what can I do for you?
Dale: Well, actually, I'm looking for a fella that calls himself Lucas.
Lucas: That's me.
Dale: Lucas, right? Just one name?
Stacey: Uh, excuse me, what's the problem here?
Dale: Well, the committee in Washington has voted not to grant you immunity.
Lucas: What does that mean?
Dale: It means you're under arrest.
Michael: Donna? Honey, we're home.
Marley: Hello, hello. Donna.
Donna: Hi. Oh, hi.
Donna: Hi. Jake, nice to see you. What are you doing home so early?
Michael: Well, actually --
Marley: You thought it would be lovely if the four of us had dinner together.
Jake: Would you mind if I use the phone in the kitchen?
Michael: No, go right ahead.
Jake: Ok, I may be a while. I have to check my messages at work. Have to take care of all these little details myself. Especially since I'm running Visions alone.
Michael: If you will excuse me, I'd like to say hello to my son. See you later. Mikey! Hey.
Donna: Darling --
Marley: Why did I go to the Corys' with Jake?
Donna: Is there something going on with you and Jake?
Marley: We were married. There will always be something going on between us no matter how much you hate it.
Donna: Why do you say that?
Marley: You drop out of the company very suddenly. You barely say a word to him. I think it's very clear what you feel about Jake and me being together.
Donna: It doesn't matter what I feel.
Marley: No, I agree. It doesn't.
Donna: It's you. It's you. I don't understand why you're belaboring something that died a year ago.
Marley: The only thing that died a year ago was cautious little Marley doing everything for everyone else to make everyone else happy.
Donna: Are you sure? It looks like you're doing everything to make Jake happy.
Marley: That's not true.
Donna: It's not? I leave Visions and all of a sudden you're going everywhere with Jake?
Marley: That is a fallacy.
Donna: Why? Why do you say that?
Marley: Causality. I am with Jake because I want to be with Jake. It has nothing to do with you, and I don't want to say anything else about it.
Donna: All right. Fine, fine.
Marley: What's the matter?
Donna: [Sighs] I don't want to fight. I can't bear it when you're angry at me. And I couldn't bear it if we weren't able to talk.
Marley: Well, why would that happen now?
Donna: I don't know. It's just sometimes I feel like I'm going to lose everybody that I love.
Amanda: Welcome home, Mom.
Rachel: Are you all right?
Amanda: Yeah, I'm fine.
Jamie: Hi, Mom. How was your flight?
Iris: Well, I'm very pleased to see you, Rachel.
Iris: Ah, hello, Ken.
Matt: Mom, I could've picked you up at the airport. Ken didn't have to do it.
Rachel: Oh, um, we flew in together.
Amanda: You were together?
Ken: Yes, I found out where your mom was staying and tracked her down.
Rachel: He caught up with me a couple of days ago.
Cass: Well, you must be quite a tracker, Ken. No one was supposed to know where Rachel was.
Iris: Oh, well, can't this wait? I mean, we're all very anxious to know the reason why we're here.
Rachel: Yes, I agree. Paulina.
Paulina: Mrs. Cory.
Rachel: I'm glad to see you could make it.
Ken: Uh, why don't I take these upstairs for you?
Rachel: Oh, you don't need to. Somebody else can do that.
Ken: I don't mind. I imagine you want to speak to the family.
Rachel: Thank you. Well, is everything ready?
Cass: I went back to the office while everybody was waiting for you, and I've left everything in the library. Would you like me to go get it?
Rachel: No, we can go in there.
Iris: Well, let's get started. I think everybody is on pins and needles enough.
Jamie: First, I'd like to know where you've been.
Matt: Yes, me, too.
Rachel: San Cristobal, Central America.
Paulina: That's where my mother lived.
Rachel: That's where a woman named Maria DeSilva lived. I went there to try and find out about her. Paulina, I know how important this is to you, but I would like to talk to my family alone for a minute, please.
Paulina: But --
Iris: So, what did you find out about this Maria person?
Rachel: Not very much. Apparently, Mac was involved with Maria. She had a child. There is a possibility that that child is Mac's.
Marley: I know how concerned you are about this whole thing with Mikey, but believe me, you are not going to lose everyone you love.
Marley: There's my boyfriend.
Michael: We're having a disagreement about bedtime here.
Donna: Uh-oh, what's the matter?
Mikey: I'm tired and Daddy wants me to stay up.
Donna: He does?
Donna: Well, that's because he hasn't seen you all evening.
Marley: I'm gonna go see what's keeping Jake.
Mikey: Um --
Michael: What? What?
Mikey: Where's my Donatello?
Donna: Oh, your Donatello. It's upstairs on the table in the hallway. I almost stepped on him this morning.
Michael: I tell you what. You go get your Donatello, and then we'll negotiate bedtime, ok? Ok, on your way, partner. See you soon.
Donna: It's getting to you, too, isn't it?
Michael: Boy. You know what he said to me? I went up and I said, "how are you doing?" He says, "Daddy, I got something to tell you." I said, "what?" He says, "I'm gonna love you forever, Dad." Forever.
Donna: And he will. And he'll be with us forever, I know that, because we're gonna fight this thing together.
Michael: Donna, you know every time I look at him, I think back to the time when I first saw him in the hospital right after we lost our baby.
Donna: [Sighs] Oh. He was so frightened and alone, and I was afraid that I couldn't have any feelings for another child.
Michael: I was, too.
Donna: You were?
Michael: Yeah, I was. And then Mikey just appeared, and it was like he -- it was like he picked us out. He was meant for us. You know that. He was meant for us.
Donna: And he is. And there's nothing that Toby and Eve Miller can do to change that.
Michael: You know -- you know what I'd like to do? I would like to -- when this is all over, I would like to take a trip. The three of us --
Michael: We'll go far away.
Michael: Someplace really incredible and special.
Donna: Wonderful, wonderful. Ok.
Michael: Wonderful. You know what's wonderful, don't you? It's you, this family -- that's what's wonderful.
Donna: That's because we're back together.
Michael: Yeah. I love you, Blackie. I love you so much.
Donna: And I love you, Blondie.
Michael: Ha! Good.
Donna: I never stopped.
Mikey: Ew, yuck, kissing.
Donna: Yuck? What do you mean, "yuck"?
Michael: Ooh, yuck, Mikey.
Donna: I'm gonna kiss you.
Marley: Are we?
Michael and Donna: What?
Marley: Are we interrupting?
Michael: No, you're not interrupting. Actually, we were just sitting here -- we were making plans for the future.
Marley: What kind of plans?
Donna: Oh, a special trip.
Donna: And I'm very happy about it.
Marley: Well, I'm happy that the Hudsons are becoming a family again.
Frankie: And we're thinking of putting another window seat up in the bedroom.
Caroline: So many projects.
Frankie: Yeah, well, it's -- it's a good house. It deserves to look its best.
Caroline: Yeah, of course, it's just that -- Cass as a Mr. Do-it-yourselfer?
Frankie: No, no. We have a carpenter, Anthony, who lives here. And -- and, you know, Cass is just too busy to do this stuff by himself.
Felicia: Yeah, but he loves the house just as much as you do. I mean, I know that.
Caroline: Forgive me, it's just that I'm really having trouble imagining Cass with the wallpaper and mortgages. But, you know, I -- I could be wrong.
Felicia: Yeah, you could be. [Chuckles]
Caroline: Right. Well, actually, I've got a date right now, so I'll --
Felicia: Would you want a lift, Felicia?
Frankie: Oh, I can give Felicia a ride. Would you like to stay for a while?
Felicia: Oh, I'd love to. Thank you.
Frankie: Good, good.
Caroline: All right, ok. Well, I'll see myself out. It was a great party, Frankie, and thank you.
Frankie: Oh, thank you for the ride. I really appreciate it. Take -- take care.
Frankie: [Imitating Caroline] Great party.
[Normal voice] I've got some tofu ice cream in the refrigerator. Would you like some?
Felicia: No, maybe later.
Frankie: Well, I'm gonna dive right in.
Felicia: Does Caroline bother you?
Felicia: Then why did it take you roughly 8 minutes to show her this entire house?
Frankie: Because she bothers me.
Felicia: Good. Now we're getting someplace. Let's sit down.
Frankie: You know, she could be right, Felicia.
Felicia: About what?
Frankie: Cass is no handyman. Maybe he did harness himself into this house because he knows how much I love it.
Felicia: Oh, honey, what difference does that make?
Frankie: What difference? What if he doesn't really want to be here? I mean, Caroline can be right, you know --
Felicia: Frankie, Frankie. Caroline is a very sad, lonely lady. She would sell her right arm or probably any other part of her body to live in this house with Cass. Since she's not healthy enough to just say that to you, she has to take little crummy shots at your happiness.
Frankie: Yeah, you're right.
Felicia: I'm right. I mean, it's very sad, but I am right.
Frankie: And I am happy.
Felicia: [Chuckles] Oh. I know, and so is Cass -- believe me.
Frankie: You know, I was at that party and I was looking at all of these beautiful women and suddenly it hit me.
Frankie: He wants to be with me. I mean, that man has played every field.
Felicia: Oh, yeah. He went pro a long time ago.
Frankie: And he wants to be with me.
Frankie: He wants to marry me and live in this house with me.
Felicia: So, is everything all right?
Frankie: Everything's all right.
Felicia: You're sure about that.
Frankie: I'm sure about that.
Felicia: Good. So, let's have the tofu.
Frankie: Great. You're gonna like it, you know. I know you don't believe me.
Felicia: What flavor do you have?
Frankie: It's chocolate almond.
Felicia: Do you have any syrup?
Felicia: Think "Anthony."
Frankie: Anthony, Anthony -- a new mantra -- Anthony.
Paulina: What are you doing in here?
Ken: Hello, Paulina.
Paulina: Answer me.
Ken: I was just thinking, that's all.
Paulina: Oh, about what?
Ken: About what life will be like after this codicil is read.
Paulina: Did you make her come back?
Ken: I maybe hurried her along a little bit.
Paulina: I couldn't believe it when Hilda called and said that Rachel wanted to see me. It's all gonna happen tonight.
Ken: Yes, it is.
Paulina: All that hard work is finally going to pay off.
Ken: Yeah, good for us.
Paulina: [Sighs] I can't wait to see the look on their faces when they find out that Mr. Cory knew about me.
Ken: Now, listen to me. That's gonna be sweet satisfaction for about five minutes.
Paulina: That's enough.
Ken: And then a lot of people are gonna be very upset.
Paulina: Well, if they are, that's their fault. I don't care.
Ken: I do.
Paulina: I am not going to do anything to hurt Rachel.
Ken: I hope that's true.
Paulina: And besides, I really don't understand why she wouldn't feel better knowing that Mr. Cory wanted her to do this.
Ken: Sure. Sure, kid. Sure.
Paulina: What about you?
Ken: What about me?
Paulina: Well, you obviously care for Rachel a great deal.
Ken: Yes, I do.
Paulina: So once she's accepted me -- once I'm part of the family, you can tell her.
Paulina: You helped a man find his child. You helped me find my family. I don't see what's wrong with that.
Ken: Paulina, if she ever finds out what I did, I may never see her again. Now, that is a possibility I don't like to contemplate.
Paulina: Well, she won't hear about it from me.
Ken: Thank you.
Paulina: And I won't ever forget what you've done for me.
Paulina: You look so sad.
Ken: Oh, I'm ok.
Paulina: I hope so, because all of a sudden, I have a very strong feeling that it's all gonna work out.
Ken: I'm happy for you. I just hope it works out for Rachel, too.
Donna: All right, say good night to your sister.
Mikey: Good night, Jake. Good night, Marley.
Marley: Good night, sweetheart. Sleep tight.
Jake: Good night, Michelangelo.
Michael: Ok, now Donatello is gonna go brush his teeth and then Mikey is gonna brush his teeth, right? You're gonna brush your teeth?
Donna: Yes, he can show you. Show Daddy how you can brush your teeth all by yourself.
Jake: How are you feeling?
Marley: I've been very worried about them.
Jake: Michael and Donna.
Marley: Mm-hmm. They love each other so much. I think Donna would be lost without Michael.
Marley: See, when Donna and I were talking together, she said she was afraid of losing everyone she loves. I don't think that's true. I think it looks like they just found each other.
Jake: Well, so it seems.
Marley: So one good thing has come out of this custody suit -- they love each other now more than ever.
Jake: I think I better get going.
Marley: Why? I thought we were going to all have dinner together.
Jake: Well, I think I'll take a rain check on that.
Jake: I don't think this is gonna work.
Marley: What -- what isn't?
Jake: Us. I love being with you, I just -- I just think you deserve someone who's better for you than me.
Marley: There's no one better for me than you.
Jake: Sure there is. You could find somebody who -- you could find someone who doesn't get in trouble all the time.
Marley: Was there a bad message on the machine when you checked?
Marley: Is that why you're acting like this? No, what is it then?
Jake: Spending time with you today made me realize how much I love being close to you.
Marley: Then why are you leaving?
Jake: Before you went to the Riviera, I told you that I didn't think you and I had any chance. And I said that -- I said that because I thought it was best for you.
Marley: Jake --
Jake: I never want to hurt you again. If I think that might happen, I'm gonna run straight for the door, Marley.
Marley: Jake, I am not some frail little flower that you have to protect. I've changed. People who care about each other have the most potential for hurting each other. It's just the way life is.
Jake: It is, is it?
Marley: I think so. Now... you want to leave?
Jake: No, I don't.
Stacey: Lucas, I'm telling you you have to calm down.
Lucas: Yeah, sure, calm down. I'm looking at prison here.
Stacey: You are not looking at prison. This case won't even go to trial for a couple of months.
Lucas: I cooperated with that lousy -- I put it on the line, and he still did it to me.
Stacey: Ok, listen. I've got a custody case. It's going to trial tomorrow. As soon as that's over, then I will cut a deal.
Lucas: No more deals, not with Harrison. I'm calling the shots.
Stacey: So what are you saying?
Lucas: I got to go.
Stacey: I -- the tape. I got to get the tape.
Lucas: Tape? I'm about to be hung up by my thumbs, and all you can think about is how to wangle a job with Iris.
Stacey: No, that's not it.
Lucas: Plus, I don't have it anyway. I didn't want the cops to confiscate it, so I had a messenger pick it up while you were talking to that marshal.
Stacey: You --
Lucas: Yeah, the tape and all of its contents and the briefcase are safely locked up in my hotel suite.
Stacey: Well, that's great. That is just great. [Groans]
Paulina: Everything changes tonight.
Ken: Yes, everything changes.
Rachel: This won't take long. So, here's where you are.
Ken: Uh, I can leave if you want me to.
Rachel: That's all right. Everybody take a seat, please.
Cass: All right. This is the codicil to Mac's will. I put it in my safe shortly after it was found by Rachel and Matt, and I brought it over here when I heard from Rachel.
Iris: All right, Cass. You've been a very good boy. Now let's get on with it.
Rachel: Go on, Cass.
Cass: Why, thank you, Rachel. "I, Mackenzie Cory, am of sound mind and body and as such am aware of the boundaries of my affections. It has recently come to my attention that I may have fathered a child, a daughter, by one Maria Hernandez DeSilva. If a woman claiming to be my daughter does come forward and if it is determined to my wife Rachel's satisfaction that she is truly my daughter, then said daughter shall share equally in my estate." And it's signed and dated. Rachel has verified Mac's signature. There are also two other signatures here. One was -- they were witnesses. One, a Hannah Tuttle, was a maid at the hotel, and the other is a local lawyer named Jared Perkins. I've spoken to each of them, and they've attested to the authenticity of this document.
Paulina: I told you.
Paulina: He was my father, and he didn't forget about me.
Amanda: Paulina, would you give us a moment, please?
Iris: I don't know what you're gloating about. You haven't got one shred of evidence to prove your claim.
Rachel: Iris, may I talk to you for a minute, please?
Iris: Of course.
Rachel: I would like to handle Paulina in my own way.
Iris: Look, if that little creature thinks --
Rachel: If she is Mac's daughter, we will do what he wants. There's enough to go around.
Iris: I just want you to make absolutely sure --
Rachel: I think you should stop and think about something.
Iris: What's that?
Rachel: You were not mentioned in the codicil. In spite of what Mac might have been thinking about you when he died, he didn't cut you out of his will, did he?
Iris: That's true. I didn't -- I didn't think.
Rachel: Well, I think you ought to think about that. Stop screaming at Paulina and help me handle this in a dignified way. That's what Mac deserves.
Iris: I'll try, but it will take an immense effort.
Rachel: Yes, I understand that.
Iris: Just look at her -- that pouting lip, that hopeful look, that quivering chin. I just want something really bad to happen to her.
Rachel: I'm counting on you, Iris.
Iris: Well, I'll try and remember that, try not to think of that conniving little bottled blonde who's unleashed herself on all of us.
Rachel: Thank you.
Iris: But, Rachel.
Iris: If you prove -- beyond a shadow of a doubt, of course -- that Paulina is what I think she is, then I would like to handle things there on in.
Rachel: Paulina, you'll be given ample opportunity to prove your claim.
Paulina: Thank you.
Rachel: If we find out that you are in fact Mac's daughter, you will be welcomed into this family and Mac's bequest will be honored. If, on the other hand, I discover that you have misrepresented yourself, I will take legal action against you, and you will be kept from this house forever. Is that clear to everyone?
Jake: I have been wanting to do this for so long.
Marley: Then why didn't you?
Jake: Didn't feel like I had the right, I guess.
Marley: The right?
Jake: I am so glad you went to France.
Jake: I don't know. I guess it just makes me realize how strong you are.
Marley: I am.
Jake: Maybe we should give it another chance.
Jake: I better get that. I had a messenger send a tape over here.
Man: Jake McKinnon?
Man: Great. Here, sign here.
Jake: Ok, where are the tapes?
Man: What tapes? You're being served with a subpoena.
Marley: A subpoena?
Jake: Miller versus Hudson. I'm being called by Stacey.
Marley: Why would Stacey call you to testify against Michael and Donna? Jake?
