John: Dr. Benson told me that you didn't want to continue with the hypnosis.
Sharlene: It scares me, John.
John: I know.
Sharlene: Every time I think about really remembering something from my childhood, it terrifies me, and I don't know why.
John: That's why you have to let her lead you through this. How about if I was there? Would that help?
John: Something I can do for you, Grant?
Grant: The specialist I brought in to consult on your case is here. He's with Dr. Benson. Will you see him?
John: No, she won't.
Michael: I got to tell you, I don't like this one bit.
Cass: I don't either.
Vicky: When's the Judge going to come back?
Cass: Any minute.
Frankie: Stacey is talking to Donna. Don't you think you and Michael should be part of that discussion?
Cass: Yes, but they both made it quite clear that no one else was wanted.
Michael: Cass, is it possible that Stacey is trying to make some kind of deal with Donna?
Cass: She wouldn't do that without me present. She knows better.
Michael: Then what the hell is going on? And how much longer are we supposed to wait?
Donna: You wait till now to do this?
Stacey: I didn't want to use this tape as evidence. I was hoping that I could win the case without it.
Donna: Do you always blackmail your opponents when you're losing, Stacey?
Stacey: You agree to give Mikey back to his natural parents or I use this tape in the court.
Donna: You're bluffing.
Stacey: Ok, you willing to take that chance?
Donna: Haven't you ever done anything wrong, Stacey, anything you're ashamed of, that you wish you could take back? Put yourself in my place. Look at what this is going to do to my family.
Stacey: Your family is not my responsibility, Mikey's welfare is.
Donna: Mikey is my son! I love him as much as the daughters I gave birth to!
Stacey: What is your answer?
Donna: You're asking me to choose between my son and my husband.
Stacey: I am asking you to see that Mikey belongs with Eve and Toby.
Donna: I can't give up my child!
Stacey: All right. Then you've made your choice.
Lucas: Congressman Harrison, please. I see. Well, when do you expect him? No, I'll call back. Thank you.
[Knock on door]
Felicia: You bet your arrest record "uh-oh."
Lucas: Well, so you heard?
Felicia: Yeah, oh, yeah, I heard, no thanks to you. What were you thinking?
Lucas: Oh, how much I hate prison food, the poor lighting.
Felicia: Don't joke, Luke. Why didn't you tell me you were arrested?
Lucas: Because I didn't want to get you involved in this, Fanny.
Felicia: I am involved. I want to help you beat this thing, remember?
Lucas: I have it under control.
Felicia: Oh, right. Sure you do. Well, you want to fill me in?
Lucas: Not particularly.
Lucas: Despite the fact that there's a congressional committee and the cartel after me, I am on top of it.
Felicia: Right, as usual.
Lucas: Thanks for the compliment.
Felicia: What are you planning?
Lucas: That hurts.
Felicia: Good. Now talk.
Grant: So you're now speaking for your wife, hmm?
John: I'm not going to let you do this, Grant.
Grant: Look, you knew that I was bringing in a consulting physiatrist.
John: Sharlene is at a very crucial time in her therapy right now. She doesn't need any more stress.
Sharlene: Please. Please, stop this.
Grant: Look, you do want to get well, don't you?
Sharlene: Yes, I do. But you don't want that for me.
Grant: How can you say that?
Sharlene: You want Sharly to be well. You don't care anything about me and you know it.
John: Just get out, Grant. Leave us alone.
Grant: Look, what she's just said you know is not true.
Taylor: John, is there a problem here?
John: I'm sick and tired of running into this guy every time I turn around. Don't we have enough to contend with?
Taylor: Can I speak to you for a moment? Please?
John: Be right back.
Grant: Look, you must know that I want what is best for you.
Taylor: John, I know this is upsetting.
Taylor: Dr. McGuire comes very highly recommended.
John: Congressman Harrison is putting claims on my wife like she's a house at the beach.
Taylor: I understand, believe me, but you've got to find another way of dealing with him. We agreed to a second opinion, and like it or not, Grant Harrison is involved. For the time being, we have to accept that, for Sharlene's sake if nothing else. Ok?
Grant: Look, I think Dr. McGuire has some good ideas about helping you get better sooner. That's why I brought him to Bay City.
Sharlene: You want to rush this.
Grant: Of course I don't. I mean, I realize this is very hard for you to accept, but I love you very much and I would never do anything in the world to hurt you.
Sharlene: You don't love me.
Grant: Yes, I do.
Sharlene: You love Sharly.
Grant: Yes. I know that there was only one you, but Sharly is a part of you.
Sharlene: Do you really know that, congressman?
Sharlene: Or do you think that I'm just a part of Sharly?
Grant: Look, I --
Sharlene: I exist. Do you hear me? I exist. I have a life that you know nothing about.
Taylor: Sharlene, ultimately -- ultimately, this choice is yours.
John: Do you want to meet the other doctor?
Reuben: It was no sweat, Mrs. Miller.
Eve: I lost it in front of everyone, the judge --
Toby: Don't worry about it, honey. It may have helped.
Reuben: Yeah. Excuse me for second, please. Yo, Michael, hold up.
Michael: "Yo," what?
Reuben: I really don't think you should go out there right now.
Michael: Well, I really don't care what you think.
Reuben: Will you please just wait for a second?
Michael: Hey, what are you up to, what do you want?
Reuben: Will you please tell him to wait, ok?
Cass: Why, what do you know?
Donna: Stacey, just think about it for one minute. You'll be destroying innocent people's lives.
Stacey: Donna --
Donna: Stacey, for God's sakes! It was one night.
Stacey: Well, maybe you should've thought of that when you kept Eve and Toby away from Mikey.
Donna: You don't have an ounce of compassion for me, do you? Don't you see what this is going to do to my life? Either way, I lose.
Stacey: Donna, you should've thought of that a long, long time ago when you used every dirty trick in the book to delay this trial, to bankrupt my clients, and to make them look bad in the eyes of the court. You should've thought of that when you made Eve Miller out to be a negligent mother, a prostitute, and someone less than you. Because you're the one who slept with your daughter's ex-husband. You lied to yourself, you lied to the Millers, you lied to this court, and you lied to your family. And then you make my client out to be some kind of monster based on your lies.
Donna: This is how you're going to win, hmm? By blackmailing me and arranging it so that I lose, no matter what?
Stacey: My clients are my responsibility and I believe in them, and they deserve to have their son back with them.
Donna: Do you know what it will do their son to send him back with strangers?
Stacey: They are his parents. And if you don't tell me otherwise, I'm going back in there with this tape.
Cass: What's going on?
Reuben: Yo, Stacey. Stacey, the judge is back. The recess is over.
Lucas: You're impossible.
Felicia: And what does that make you?
Lucas: Ok, if I tell you, no lip, promise?
Felicia: I don't guarantee you anything.
Lucas: I have some information on the congressman.
Felicia: What kind of information?
Lucas: Suffice it to say that it will not do his career or his reputation any good.
Felicia: What does this information have to do with you?
Lucas: Look, if the congressman finds out what I know, he is likely to go to his committee and have them come up with a deal. Then I will go to my grave with this information and they'll drop the charges on me.
Felicia: Have you gone completely off the deep end here? What are you thinking about? What if Harrison doesn't bite? What if they use this evidence against you?
Lucas: Fanny, if I go to the press with this, his career is history.
Felicia: It's that big?
Lucas: It's that big.
Felicia: What is it?
Lucas: Fanny, I don't want to have to use this, but if I do, I will not go to prison.
Felicia: Just make sure you don't hurt any innocent people. I don't believe you can live with yourself if that ever happened.
Taylor: This is Sharlene's husband, Dr. John Hudson.
Man: Dr. Hudson.
John: Dr. McGuire.
Dr. McGuire: How have you been feeling lately, Sharlene?
Sharlene: Well, I've been working through a lot of things lately. It's hard.
Dr. McGuire: I understand.
Grant: Sharlene, Dr. McGuire has been totally briefed on your case and is anxious to get started with the treatment.
Taylor: He'll be observing our session, if that's all right with you?
Sharlene: Yes, that's fine.
John: Sharlene, I meant what I said. If you don't want to go through this, we can postpone it, we can cancel it.
Sharlene: John, it's fine. I'm fine. When do you want to begin?
Taylor: Anytime you'd like.
Sharlene: Let's go. See you.
Grant: I think she was open to that, don t you?
John: No, I don't. I think she felt pressured.
Grant: Well, I'm sorry you feel that way.
John: There's one thing that I've tried to control in this whole mess, and that is keeping Sharlene's life as simple as possible. I've tired to keep stress away from her so that she can concentrate on getting well, but you walking in and out of here anytime you choose doesn't seem to help.
Grant: You know, it amazes me to think that you think that I'm doing this just to stir up trouble.
John: I don't care why you're doing it. All I know is that you're upsetting my wife and jeopardizing her health.
Grant: I just want to help her, that's all.
John: What about your health, Grant? If you don't do something to maintain your health, you're only going to get worse. There's not going to be any point to you going to Dr. Hiver's program. You need to be in France.
Grant: Right, and out of your hair, right?
John: Yes! Yes, I want you out of my hair. But I do not want to see you die. Clear enough?
Grant: Well, I'm hoping that drug will become available very soon. Dr. Frame seems to think it will be.
John: Soon? What is that, six months, a year, two years from now? You don't have that kind of time.
Grant: I'll take my chances.
John: You're committing suicide!
Grant: Look, I don't care. I love her. And I know how this must make you feel, but I'm not going to apologize for anything that I have no control over anymore. I am not giving up on her, John.
Michael: Now, you want to tell me just what was going on out there?
Cass: Donna, the case is going to be turned over to the judge right after our closing statements are made. Is there something I should know before I get up there?
Vicky: Something's very wrong.
Jake: Don't. Don't let the Judge know anything's wrong.
Judge: Mr. Winthrop, your summation was interrupted. If you'd like to start again, I'll allow it.
Cass: Thank you, your honor.
Toby: Stacey, what's happening?
Stacey: Just sit tight, all right? It'll be ok.
Cass: I'm not going to spend time reviewing the facts of this case, your honor. I would like, however, to remind you of one very important issue. Little Michael Hudson is being raised with care, understanding, and an abundance of love. It is unconscionable to even consider the possibility of destroying this child's world. And yet if he is taken from the Hudsons, that's exactly what will happen. The world as he knows it will end. Donna and Michael Hudson legally adopted Mikey. They are the only parents he has ever known. And they are the ones who have the legal and moral right to continue in that capacity for the rest of the child's life. Thank you.
Judge: Ms. Winthrop, your closing statements?
Stacey: Your honor, it has come to my attention --
Cass: Donna, please.
Michael: What are you doing?
Donna: My son belongs to his biological parents.
[Judge pounds gavel]
Cass: Donna, what are you talking about?
Grant: So is Dr. Benson having any success with the hypnosis?
Grant: I would appreciate if you would speak to me in complete sentences, John.
John: You know, I find it very difficult to speak to you about anything without wanting to put you through the nearest wall.
Grant: Well, I talked to Emma. Apparently, Sharly's been around here a lot longer than anybody cares to admit.
John: I see. You spoke to Emma and this is what you decided?
John: Well, Sharlene hasn't needed Sharly for almost 20 years, and I find the concept of Sharly as a viable individual real hard to grasp.
Grant: Well, she found me, John. She's not a figment of my imagination, and we fell in love.
John: She is married to me.
Grant: Look, Sharlene, Sharly, both of them are obviously looking for something more, and each needs something for the other one to survive.
John: I know who I married.
Grant: Dr. McGuire told me something else -- that when this integration is completed that Sharlene will know Sharly's memories.
John: I know that.
Grant: So how will you deal with her memories of me?
Taylor: Are you comfortable, Sharlene?
Taylor: With Dr. McGuire here, as well?
Sharlene: I'll do whatever I have to do to be well.
Taylor: Ok. Then I want you to sit back and relax. Clear your mind. Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
Taylor: Relax, Sharlene.
Sharlene: I'm -- I'm tense.
Taylor: I know.
Sharlene: It's just every time I think about remembering something from -- I don't -- I don't like to think about my childhood.
Taylor: I know. I'm not going to push anything. If I find that you're experiencing memories that are too difficult for you to deal with, I'll call you out of the hypnosis, ok?
Sharlene: Ok. Ok. Ok, let's do this.
Taylor: Count back from 100.
Sharlene: 100, 99. 98. 9-- 90. 9-- 90. Oh, why are you doing this to me? I don't --
Sharlene: This hypnosis stuff isn't all it's cracked up to be, doc.
Taylor: Hello, Sharly.
Sharlene: She's -- she's a gutless wonder, you know that?
Taylor: You think Sharlene's a coward?
Sharlene: Among other mealy-mouthed things, yeah. Hi. I'm Sharly Watts. It's very nice to meet you.
Dr. McGuire: Hello.
Sharlene: So Sharlene doesn't want to talk about the past. But I'll tell you anything you want to know, and you don't have to put me in a trance either. You smoke, doc?
Dr. McGuire: No.
Sharlene: Great. Ok, come on, Dr. Benson. I'll put on a much better show for your friend. Ask me anything. Anything.
Michael: Donna, talk to me. What is going on here?
Cass: Donna, what did Stacey say to you?
Judge: Order. [Pounds gavel] I demand order in this court!
Cass: Your honor, I'd like to request a 10-minute recess.
Judge: You got it, and I would like some answers when you return. The court will be in recess for the next 10 minutes.
Bailiff: All rise.
Michael: Look, I'll handle this, Cass.
Cass: Michael --
Michael: I will handle this.
Frankie: What did she say to her?
Michael: Are you out of your mind?
Reporter: Mrs. Hudson?
Michael: Hey, back off.
Reporter: Mrs. Hudson, why this sudden change of heart?
Michael: I said back off! Come here, come here. Get away from her!
Reporter: Just one question, Mr. Hudson.
Donna: I'm sorry.
Michael: You're sorry?
Donna: I didn't have a chance to talk to you about this before.
Michael: Wait a minute, wait a minute. You may have just given away our son, and you're saying "I'm sorry"?
Donna: Too many people are going to get hurt. I can't go through with it.
Michael: You can't go through with it? You can't -- what about me? What about Mikey? Donna, you just may have decided for me that I can't be that little boy's father.
Donna: Michael, I realized that we're making a mistake. What about all my lies and my tricks? What if I'm just thinking of myself and my needs and I'm not thinking about Mikey?
Michael: Donna, we had this case won. You understand that? And you just handed Mikey to them like -- like a gift. How could you do that?
Donna: I did what I had to do. If I hadn't, he would lose everything. I'm just trying to think of Mikey's best interests.
Michael: Mikey's best interest is to be with us. You know that.
Donna: All of a sudden, I have this image of him hating us because we lied to him.
Michael: We never lied to him. We've always told him the truth, Donna. We said he can deal with the Millers when he's older.
Donna: Michael, I can't do to him what I did to Victoria.
Michael: But it's not the same!
Donna: Look at all the problems that she's had in her whole life because she feels that her parents didn't try to look for her and that we didn't love her.
Michael: God, I don't believe what I'm hearing!
Donna: I can't keep lying to get what I want. You ask me over and over and over again if the fight for Mikey for ourselves was worth the cost to us. I couldn't see that, Michael. Now I see it. Now I know the consequences.
Michael: So after all we've been through -- see, what I don't understand is, how could you make this decision for both of us? I mean, what gives you that right?
Donna: Michael, please don't make this any harder than it has to be. Don't hate me, please.
Michael: Stacey -- Stacey threatened you, didn't she? She said something to you. Yes, she did.
Michael: You tell me what it was.
Michael: Look, you just gave away our son. I want to know why.
Donna: Stacey didn't threaten me.
Michael: That's bull. That's bull, and you know it, Donna. I know you. You never would've given up that boy unless there was a good reason. Tell me why, why, what -- is he in danger?
Donna: No, he's not.
Michael: Did she threaten him?
Donna: He's not, Michael. I'm doing what I have to do. Please believe me.
Michael: Whether I do or not, Donna, what does it matter, huh?
Cass: Donna, the judge is back. And I need to know what you expect me to do up there.
Donna: Let's go.
Cass: Donna, are you telling me you're going to drop this case?
Cass: Do you want custody of your son or don't you? Talk to me! Don't decide this on your own!
Judge: Mr. Winthrop?
Cass: Yes, your honor?
Judge: You have conferred with your clients?
Cass: Briefly, your honor.
Judge: Do they wish to withdraw their opposition to the plaintiffs' petition?
Donna: Yes, I do.
Judge: Order. Order! Mr. Hudson, are you in agreement with this decision?
Michael: Your honor, without my wife's support, I don't see how I can proceed.
Judge: This is most unusual. I might add that a great deal of time and expense have been wasted in this court. Since this case has been withdrawn, I have no further jurisdiction in this matter, but I do urge both parties to come to a quick and a fair resolution for the sake of the child to be finalized by this court as soon as possible. This court is now adjourned.
Bailiff: All rise.
Vicky: What happened? Mom, please, what happened? What changed?
Cass: Did she say anything to you?
Michael: Nothing. Cass, this has to be Stacey's doing. Do you have any idea at all what she might have said to Donna?
Vicky: Do you want to go home?
Vicky: Do you want me to bring the car around in the back?
Michael: Please, that would be great.
Vicky: You ok?
Donna: Just get me out of here.
Vicky: Do you want to come with me?
Donna: Please don't hate me. I need you.
Michael: Let's just get out of here, ok? Let's go home.
Frankie: Are you going to talk to her?
Cass: If I don't strangle her first.
Cass: I think we have to talk.
Frankie: Why don't we leave them alone, Reuben.
Reuben: Ok, you got it.
Cass: What did you do?
Stacey: Cass, it was her decision, it wasn't mine.
Cass: You had something on Donna. What could you possibly have found that would scare her into giving up her child?
Felicia: I want you to tell me what you're feeling.
Lucas: Fanny, if I have to use this information, I will.
Felicia: What happens if the congressional committee gets wind of all this? Then what?
Lucas: I'm not doing anything illegal, really.
Felicia: What is that, like being sort of pregnant?
Lucas: I'm not going to be his fall guy.
Felicia: Can innocent people get hurt with the information that you know?
Lucas: There isn't any other way.
Felicia: Oh, Luke. I thought you wanted to come here and make a fresh start.
Lucas: I tried. They're not making it very easy.
Felicia: Why does everything have to be a fight with you?
Lucas: Fanny, who's giving me a break? I have the cartel breathing down my neck, and now I have some self-righteous congressman wielding his power. I tried to play it straight. They won't let me.
Felicia: I just can't believe there's not some other way to do this.
Lucas: Fanny, I came here to try and win you back. I thought we could -- we could find our daughter, but we can't. I've been living a pipe dream for over a year. I can't have you. I can't have my daughter. I'm not going to jail for the rest of my life.
Felicia: Luke --
Lucas: Fanny, I'm not responsible for other people's mistakes. I have to do what I have to do.
Taylor: I didn't expect to see you today, Sharly.
Sharlene: Oh, come on, honey. You never want to see me.
Taylor: I'm sorry you feel that way.
Sharlene: She's quite a looker, isn't she, hmm? You know, honey, you could've helped people with their problems in a lot more fun way. You catch my drift?
Taylor: I enjoy what I do, Sharly.
Sharlene: This broad's a piece of work, isn't she? Piece of work.
Dr. McGuire: Dr. Benson was about to ask Sharlene about a specific incident from her childhood.
Sharlene: Our childhood.
Dr. McGuire: Right.
Sharlene: Ok. What do you want to know?
Taylor: We were talking about the fourth of July.
Sharlene: Yeah, what about it?
Taylor: Is there a particular fourth of July that sticks out in your mind?
Sharlene: No. No. My family was real big on that patriotic stuff. We had picnics all the time. We had barbecues --
Sharlene: Yeah, so -- so what, what -- what's scaring poor old Sharlene? Is she scared of fireworks? They too loud? Did she have an attack?
Taylor: Before you arrived, we were about to hypnotize Sharlene to help her remember that day.
Sharlene: Are you going to wave a watch in front of my eyes? Oh, that's so creepy. That's creepy.
Taylor: Hypnosis can be very revealing, Sharly, if you're open to it.
Sharlene: It is all a crock, ok? Look, McGuire, my Grant sent you here, right?
Dr. McGuire: Yes.
Sharlene: Well, I think it's time we stopped wasting his money and let you talk to me. Don't you?
Dr. McGuire: Well, if Taylor agrees --
Sharlene: To hell with Taylor. I want to talk to you, alone.
Taylor: I don't think that's such a good idea, Sharly.
Sharlene: Why, what are you afraid of? That I might tell the truth, saints preserve us?
Taylor: I think you're trying to create two armed camps. I just won't have it.
Sharlene: Let me ask you something, Taylor. If Sharlene asked to speak to Dr. McGuire alone, you'd say yes, wouldn't you? Case closed.
Taylor: Is this all right with you, doctor?
Dr. McGuire: Absolutely.
Taylor: All right. I'll be right outside.
Sharlene: I knew you'd understand. Thank goodness someone believes in me. Thank goodness for Grant. Later.
Sharlene: What the hell are you doing here?
Taylor: This is not a good time, Josie.
Josie: Mama --
Sharlene: No, get her out of here!
Taylor: Josie, please, wait outside.
Josie: What is wrong with my mother?
Sharlene: Oh, Josie.
Josie: Mama. What happened? Why did -- why'd you yell at me?
Sharlene: Oh, Josie, honey, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
Sharlene: It's ok. We're ok.
Sharlene: There's something I have to tell you.
Josie: Mama, you -- you look so tired.
Sharlene: I am tired, I am. Come here. But I'm getting better. You have to believe that, ok? Ok, you have to believe it.
Sharlene: I yelled at you just now?
Josie: Yes. You -- you don't remember?
Sharlene: See, I've been keeping something from you, and I think you have a right to know.
Josie: You're scaring me, Mama.
Sharlene: Oh, honey, this is -- this is pretty scary stuff. It really is. You know, I haven't been acting like myself for the past few months.
Sharlene: What I -- what I wasn't telling anybody, what I -- what I didn't want to admit to myself was that I was also having lapses of -- of memory. Major lapses.
Josie: Are you really sick?
Josie: Are you going to die?
Sharlene: No, no way. No. No. Now, you listen, listen to me. I -- honey, I have what's called -- shh. I have what's called a multiple personality disorder.
Sharlene: The person who yelled at you just now wasn't me. It was someone who calls herself Sharly.
Sharlene: I know this is a lot to swallow, Jos. I didn't want you to worry.
Josie: I don't get it. You mean you -- you have another personality?
Sharlene: And she's nothing like me. I didn't want you to know.
Josie: I could've helped.
Sharlene: No, Josie, please don't be angry with me. Don't, don't be angry with me.
Josie: Oh, Mama, I'm not angry.
Sharlene: It's ok.
Josie: What are they -- what are they doing to help you?
Sharlene: Dr. Benson is trying to get me to remember some things. Shh, shh. She's trying to get me to remember some things from -- from my past, things that I've buried pretty deeply, but Sharly -- she doesn't like me very much.
Josie: Me either, I guess.
Sharlene: I'm sorry.
Josie: Mama, Mama, are you going to be ok?
John: You think she's telling Josie everything?
Taylor: Well, when Josie walked in, Sharly was there.
Grant: She was?
Taylor: I had just started hypnosis. Sharly came out before Sharlene went under.
Grant: Did you talk to her, Phil?
Dr. McGuire: She's very strong, Grant.
Grant: Yes, I know.
John: Sharly wouldn't let you hypnotize her?
Taylor: She said I could ask her anything I wanted, but when I tried to push her on the incident that Sharlene mentioned in hypnosis, she -- she seemed to tune out. I think she's as afraid of that time as Sharlene is. She won't admit it.
Grant: They're really fighting for control over each other, aren't they?
Taylor: It seems to be intensifying. We have to be very careful.
Dr. McGuire: There's a lot to be done. I think you've only just scratched the surface.
Josie: How long do you -- do you have to stay here?
Sharlene: I don't know.
Sharlene: I want to be well, Jos, and I don't want to hurt, but see, sweetheart, I feel safe here.
Josie: John misses you so much.
Sharlene: John -- John is being taken care of by Emma. She promised me that.
Josie: Are you sure you have to stay here?
Sharlene: Josie, don't --
Josie: Mama, if you came back to the farm, I'd move back in till you were well.
Sharlene: Josie, that's not the way.
Josie: Mama, I would take care of you, and Dr. Benson could come by.
Josie: Mama, if you -- if you asked to leave here, could you?
Cass: I want you to tell me what you did to Donna.
Stacey: I asked her to reconsider and she did.
Cass: Damn it, Stacey, what did you say to her?
Stacey: Cass, look, she's your client. Why don't you ask her? It's not really --
Cass: You don't know when to stop, do you?
Stacey: Stop what?
Cass: You just couldn't let this thing play itself out. You had to come up with some dirty stunt, freak Donna out, and win by default. Are you happy now?
Stacey: Mikey will be now that he's with his real parents. Cass, that's all I ever wanted for him. Now, I'm going to talk to my clients. Will you excuse me, please?
Frankie: I think we'd better go get you some air, ok?
Eve: After all that's happened -- what's going to happen?
Toby: When can we see our son?
Stacey: I'll have to arrange that with the Hudsons. But the important thing is that Mikey's back with you guys for good.
Eve: I can't believe it.
Toby: I don't know what to -- what would we have done without you?
Stacey: Well --
Vicky: Here it is. She was so upset, she forgot it.
Jake: Well, she seemed kind of out of it.
Vicky: She gave up. My mother never gives up.
Jake: She must've thought it was the best thing for Mikey.
Vicky: Even so... I don't think I could've done that, let alone Donna. What -- I don't believe this.
Jake: I'm sure she had her reasons.
Jake: And it must have been big.
Mikey: Mommy, Daddy! Mommy, Daddy, you're home!
Michael: Come on, buddy, come here. Oh, yes, we're home, oh, and we're glad to see you, too.
Ted: All right, what's this all about, Lucas? I haven't got all day.
Lucas: I wanted to handle this with the congressman, but he's a tough guy to get ahold of.
Ted: Yes, he's a very busy man.
Lucas: Yeah, I'm sure he is -- I mean, you know, juggling politics and love. That's got to be rough on him.
Ted: Excuse me?
Lucas: Uh, this is the picture, isn't it?
Ted: Oh, come on, you showed me that picture.
Lucas: Yeah, but I had another part of it enlarged -- the face, her face.
Ted: So what does that prove? The congressman has a girlfriend. Big deal.
Lucas: Teddy, Teddy. She's married. I know it and you know it. Now, either you make a deal or every editor in this town will know it, and then it will hit the wire services. I'm talking big news here.
Ted: You wouldn't do that.
Lucas: Oh, no? What do I have to lose? Papers love a story like this. They haven't had anything this big since you know who.
Ted: Still, it doesn't prove anything, who she is.
Lucas: I know who she is. I've known her, may I say politely, in the biblical sense. You get my drift here?
Ted: What do you want me to do?
Lucas: I want you to call the D.A. and I want those charges dropped.
Ted: I can't do that.
Lucas: Maybe you should talk to the congressman. I think he might like the idea.
Woman: Sharlene, is something wrong?
Sharlene: No. I've changed my mind, Daphne. I want to go home.
Sharlene: No, it's just me. It's me. I want to be with my family. No.
Daphne: Would you like me to call Dr. Benson for you, Sharly? Maybe she could help you with this.
Sharlene: No, I'm not Sharly. I'm not. You can't do this to me! I didn't sign anything!
Grant: Sharly, Sharly!
Grant: Let her -- let her go.
Cass: For me?
Frankie: You like it?
Cass: It's beautiful.
Frankie: You were brilliant, you know.
Cass: I did everything I possibly could.
Frankie: I know you did, baby. And I know that you're worried about Mikey. But I've spent a lot of time watching the Millers. They're good people. Mikey will be fine with them.
Cass: Good vibes, Mary Frances?
Frankie: Mm-hmm. Very centered. Good. I seem to remember something we have to do in the next day.
Cass: Yeah, yeah, some kind of a party or something? Help me, help me.
Frankie: Oh, you mean that little wedding thing.
Cass: That's it, that little wedding thing. Yeah, yeah.
Frankie: Is that Friday?
Cass: Think so.
Frankie: Hmm. You ready?
Cass: You bet I am. Very good vibes on Friday. I checked it out.
Frankie: Oh. I do love you.
Michael: Bud, you remember Mom and I told you the story about how we found you? Do you remember what we told you? About after we brought you home, what you were? What?
Mikey: I was a present from God.
Michael: That's right.
Donna: You -- you were. And do you also remember that your real Mommy and Daddy were very sad because they lost you? And -- and we couldn't find them and they didn't know that you were with us? Well, now they have found us. And you know the nice lady that you saw on the park today, the woman that comes here to see you?
Donna: Well, she's your real mommy, and -- so, that makes you a very lucky boy. And there aren't many boys as lucky as that.
Michael: Well, because that means that you have two mommies and -- and two daddies, all of whom -- all of whom love you very, very much.
Donna: See how lucky you are? See how lucky we all are, hmm?
