Ken: Excuse me.

Paulina: Need any help?

Ken: No thanks. This is the last of it.

Paulina: For your next expedition, huh?

Ken: Yep. So, what brings you around here?

Paulina: Well, I had some good news and I wanted to share it with someone.

Ken: Oh, yeah? What kind of good news?

Paulina: I started at Visions today.

Ken: Well, good for you. How'd it go?

Paulina: Great, and better than I expected.

Ken: Yeah? What's McKinnon got you doing?

Paulina: Everything. I mean, I'm learning the business from top to bottom.

Ken: [Laughs] Including the boss?

Paulina: Well, you know, it never hurts to have a boss as attractive as Jake.

Ken: Paulina, I don't want to rain on your parade, but when it comes to Jake McKinnon, I think you better watch your step.

[Cork pops]

Jake: Whoa-ho!

Marley: Oh.

Jake: This is good.

Marley: Yes, too good. That's --

Jake: Mr. Reutlinger, take the long way to Tops. We have some celebrating to do.

Marley: Jake, Jake -- why, Jake?

Jake: Jake, why what?

Marley: Why the champagne? Why the limo? Why are you spending all of this money?

Jake: Because I want this to be a special night. Here's your glass.

Marley: Thank you. But just last week you were so worried about money.

Jake: True, but I'm not worried anymore.

Marley: Well, why not?

Jake: Because for you, I want nothing but the best.

Marley: That's not an answer.

Jake: Well --

[Phone rings]

Jake: Excuse me. Hi, we can't come to the phone right now, as we're busy drinking champagne. However, if you leave a message at the hiccup, we'll get back to you when we feel like it.

[Hiccup]

Marley: [Whispering] Jake.

Iris: Jake, what's going on?

Jake: Who's this?

Iris: The person who's paying for that limo.

Jake: Oh, hi.

Iris: Don't you "oh, hi" me. Why did you charge the limo to my account?

Jake: Well, because --

Iris: Well, it better be because you are on the job. And if that's not Paulina Cantrell you're wining and dining, my dear boy, you're in deep trouble.

Lucas: Are you alone?

Ted: That's what you wanted, isn't it?

Lucas: Yeah, I want a lot of things, but you always keep getting in the way.

Ted: Well, that's crazy, Lucas.

Lucas: Hey, I've been straight with you from day one.

Ted: Are you saying I haven't been straight with you?

Lucas: Come on, Ted, you wouldn't know the meaning of the word. You've been in Washington for too long.

Ted: What do you want?

Lucas: I want to show you something. It's a mock-up -- a mock-up of an article. And if the congressman doesn't back off, I'm going to release it.

Ted: "Congressman hides affair with married lady." You wouldn't.

Lucas: Try me.

Rachel: So, what -- here you go.

Jamie: Thanks.

Rachel: What did you call that? You call that a satellite clinic?

Jamie: That's right -- a way to deliver care to people who need it but can't travel to get it. Who knows how many people haven't survived because -- because of the distance they had to travel to get to a real medical facility?

Rachel: It sounds like a terrific idea.

Jamie: It could save a lot of lives, Mom. It would be so simple. I mean, all we would need is some money and a lot of dedication.

[Rachel laughs]

Rachel: The money isn't so simple. The dedication -- I have a feeling I know where that would come from.

Jamie: I'm going to make this work.

Rachel: That's good, honey. What made you come up with this?

Jamie: I was over on the west side visiting Stacey in her new place. It's pretty bad over there. You can get pretty insulated in a house like this.

Rachel: Yeah, that's true.

Jamie: There's a real need there, Mom. You know, I've been thinking about the kind of medicine I want to practice.

Rachel: Oh?

Jamie: Yeah, a great deal lately, especially in France.

Rachel: In France?

Jamie: Well, it was a medical convention.

Rachel: Yeah, I know that.

Jamie: So?

Rachel: So, I mean, I love France, but I -- I don't think of France as being the place you go when you really want to, you know, think seriously about the serious issues in life. But I'm delighted -- I'm delighted that you have a very clear sense of your direction with your work right now.

Jamie: Yeah. Mac used to tell me, "if you're not happy doing what you're doing, do something else. Life's too short."

Rachel: He's right.

Jamie: Yeah. Why are you looking at me like that?

Rachel: I was just thinking. I think there's something going around, you know?

Jamie: Why do you say that?

Rachel: Because I've been thinking the same way lately.

Jamie: Mom, does this have anything to do with Ken?

Rachel: No. No, actually, it doesn't have anything to do with him at all.

[Phone rings]

Rachel: Saved by the bell.

Rachel: Hello?

Iris: Rachel?

Rachel: Yes, Iris.

Iris: My secretary said you'd called.

Rachel: Ah, yes, that's right. I was wondering if you would mind coming over here after you're finished at work.

Iris: Well, I suppose so. Why?

Rachel: Well, there are a few things I'd like to discuss with you.

Iris: What sort of things?

Rachel: Well, let's talk about it when you get here.

Iris: But they're important?

Rachel: Yes.

Iris: Well, I'm finished up here. Is it convenient if I come over now?

Rachel: That would be terrific. I'll see you.

Jamie: Mom.

Rachel: What?

Jamie: I haven't seen that look in your eyes in a long time.

[Rachel laughs]

Jamie: It's good to see it back.

Rachel: Well, I don't think Iris is going to be so happy to see it back. I don't think she's going to be happy at all.

Marley: Who was on the phone?

Jake: Iris Wheeler.

Marley: Why was Iris calling you in the car?

Jake: Because she's a client.

Marley: I know.

Jake: Cory Publishing is getting into videotape in a big way, and Iris and I are working hand-in-glove, so to speak.

Marley: This car is a business expense?

Jake: I didn't want you to know that, baby.

Marley: Jake!

Jake: Jake, what?

Marley: Jake, this isn't exactly business here.

Jake: That depends what business you're in.

Marley: Did you think this would impress me?

Jake: I wasn't trying to impress you. I -- I wanted to -- to have a new beginning, for this evening to be -- I wanted this evening to be special.

Marley: And you thought that the champagne and the limo would make it special?

Jake: Doesn't it? Come on, Marley, admit it, you're having fun. You're having fun. You're having fun.

Marley: Ok. [Laughs]

Jake: I knew it. I knew it.

Marley: But if I was at home alone with you, sitting on the floor eating pizza, the night would be special.

Jake: Well, we'll do that, too. But just for tonight, can't I -- can't I spoil you, a little?

[Glasses clink]

Paulina: So, why don't you approve of Jake?

Ken: Did I say I didn't approve of him?

Paulina: Well, what does "watch your step" mean?

Ken: Oh, the guy just seems like kind of a user to me, that's all. He always has an angle. Hey, come here. Give me a hand here, will you? Hold this.

Paulina: This?

Ken: Just like that.

Paulina: I think you're wrong about Jake.

Ken: Oh, yeah? Well, you see what you want to see.

Paulina: Well, I do see that he's awfully cute.

Ken: Cute? Is that all you're interested in -- that he's cute? How about honesty? How about maybe he's straightforward?

[Paulina laughs]

Ken: All you're interested in is that he's cute?

Paulina: Don't worry, Ken. Guys like Jake McKinnon -- they don't scare me at all.

Ken: Eh, well, just be careful. I don't want you blowing the plan while I'm gone.

Paulina: When are you going?

Ken: Right away. I've been here too long. It's time for another expedition.

Paulina: You -- you're just going to leave me here with the Corys?

Ken: Oh, you can handle them.

Paulina: No, I can't -- not without you to talk to. You can't leave now, Ken.

Lucas: You have a credibility problem, pal.

Ted: I know that a couple of things have gone wrong.

Lucas: Ho-ho-ho, a couple of things. First, you ask me to wait for -- for the wedding to be over.

Ted: Well, I had to.

Lucas: Then you lied.

Ted: When?

Lucas: You asked for 24 hours.

Ted: And you gave me 12.

Lucas: And I still came up with nothing.

Ted: These things are unbelievably delicate.

Lucas: You call them delicate, I call them a stall.

Ted: Major political moves are involved.

Lucas: Ted, Ted, Ted, come on. Save this sweet talk for the investors, huh? For the fundraisers.

Ted: I -- there is nothing more I can do.

Lucas: Well, I can tell you what I can do. And when I'm finished, not only will the congressman's career be in the toilet, but you as his main man will be out of a very high-paying job.

Ted: I'm telling you the truth. Now, I don't know what else I can say.

Lucas: You don't have to say anything else. You just show the congressman this. If that doesn't interest him, he can read it with the rest of America.

Ted: Lucas --

Lucas: Just call him.

Ted: I can't. I -- I can't reach him before 11:00 tomorrow morning.

Lucas: 11:00 tomorrow morning?

Ted: I swear, yes.

Lucas: And you'll be there waiting for him, with that?

Ted: W -- w -- yes, that's right. I --

Lucas: Just do it. Have him call me -- it's real, real simple.

Ted: Lucas!

Lucas: Do it.

Felicia: Honey, you got to hang in there. No, of course I will, the moment I hear anything. And you call me if you have any news, all right? Yeah. Oh, listen, Josie's here. Yeah, she was checking on Frankie's yoga instructors. Right. Right -- no, I'll call you the moment she tells me anything. Right, ok. Thanks, bye-bye. Hi.

Josie: Hi.

Felicia: Any luck?

Josie: Not a word.

Felicia: I was afraid of that.

Josie: Felicia, what are we going to do?

Felicia: We're going to have the faith. That's all we can do. She will come back.

Josie: I wish I could believe that.

Felicia: Does your mother know yet?

Josie: No, john doesn't want to worry her. I mean, she has enough problems.

Felicia: Now listen to me. Sharlene and Frankie are both strong, spirited ladies. They're both survivors, you know that. Come here. Oh, excuse me. Go have a drink. Well, you two, you are ten minutes early.

Marley: Oh.

Jake: Our driver made very good time.

Felicia: Your driver -- I'm impressed. Hello, Marley.

Marley: Hi.

Felicia: All right, your friend here reserved the best table in the house.

Jake: Mm.

Felicia: He does have a little pull here. How's this?

Marley: Wow.

Jake: Is this a fantastic view or what?

Marley: Fantastic.

Jake: Fantastic.

Felicia: Right. Now, you said you'd like to start with beluga caviar, and then go right to chateaubriand for two. Is that still a go?

Jake: If Mrs. McKinnon has no objections.

Marley: Oh, no, not -- not me.

Jake: We would like the chateaubriand medium rare.

Felicia: All right.

Jake: That is the way you like it, right?

Marley: Oh, yes.

Jake: Oh, yes. And could we see a wine list as soon as possible?

Felicia: Oh, of course, Mr. McKinnon.

[Jake laughs]

Felicia: Do enjoy your dinner.

Marley: Thank you.

Felicia: If you need anything at all, just holler -- anything.

Marley: Thank you, Felicia. I still don't get this.

Jake: What don't you get?

Marley: The Jake I knew before rode a motorcycle --

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Marley: Barbecued hamburgers --

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Marley: Made fun of yuppies and conspicuous consumption.

Jake: Well, it never hurts to be conspicuous every once in a while.

[Jake and Marley laugh]

Marley: No. What happened to you?

Jake: Oh, I just got to thinking.

Marley: About what?

Jake: The day will come when I don't look good in jeans anymore.

Marley: No, never!

Jake: I'm serious. A guy has to grow up, doesn't he?

Marley: Is that what my mother told you?

Jake: What do you mean?

Marley: I'm just wondering if this change in you has anything to do with donna.

Rachel: Yes. Ok, I'll see she gets the message. Thanks. Where are you going with that, little boy?

Jamie: I want to bring this over to Steven, Mommy, to see if Marley is there.

Rachel: Marley?

Jamie: I want to talk to her about coming up with some funding for the clinic.

Rachel: Really?

Jamie: I think she would make a good administrator, too. I don't know if she knows that.

Rachel: So, Marley is really into this clinic the way you are?

Jamie: Yeah. We talked about it a lot, especially in France.

Rachel: Ah, France again.

Jamie: You know, Mom, I -- I really never got to know her that well before.

Rachel: And now you feel you do?

Jamie: Well, we had these -- these long conversations. We -- we talked about things that count, you know?

Rachel: Yes.

Jamie: Marley -- she's very different than Vicky.

Rachel: Yes, I know that.

Jamie: I mean, it was strange at first.

Rachel: Why?

Jamie: Well, I would say something to her -- I would look at Marley, and I would expect her to give me a shot -- you know, like Vicky does.

Rachel: Yeah.

Jamie: But Marley was always Marley. She was calm, willing to listen, and even when we disagreed, it was ok.

Rachel: That sounds really nice.

Jamie: She even spoke French. I mean, she was unbelievable with dr. Hiver. Not to mention the haggling with storekeepers.

Rachel: Marley haggling?

Jamie: She was fierce.

[Rachel laughs]

Jamie: I mean, if she thought she was being ripped off, she was fierce.

Rachel: That's good.

Jamie: Yeah. She was great. I mean, I brought up the idea about the clinic.

Rachel: Mm-hmm.

Jamie: And I could see the same fierceness. She really cares.

Rachel: That's good, sweetie.

Jamie: It's almost like fate.

Rachel: Oh -- yeah, almost.

[Doorbell rings]

Rachel: Oh, wait a minute -- look, this is iris probably, and I better talk to her alone, ok?

Jamie: Go get her, mom. Be fierce.

Rachel: Right.

Jamie: Good.

Rachel: Sure, fierce.

Jamie: Yes, fierce.

Rachel: Fierce.

Rachel: Iris.

Iris: Hi, Rachel.

Rachel: Thank you for coming over so quickly.

Iris: Oh, only the two of us?

Rachel: Who else did you want?

Iris: Well, it's just that you've been seeing so much of Ken Jordan -- until lately. So, what's up?

Rachel: This is what's up. As of tomorrow, I will be resuming my duties as CEO of Cory Enterprises. Wow, last year I had a baby,

Ken: Oh! You won't make any mistakes with the Corys.

Paulina: I get nervous, ken.

Ken: I'm just getting in the way over there, Paulina. You don't need me.

Paulina: Yes, I do.

Ken: Paulina, I've done everything I can.

Paulina: You're my hero, ken. Don't you know that?

Ken: I am no hero, believe me.

Paulina: Well, you are. Sorry if it embarrasses you.

Ken: Paulina, listen to me. Don't get too dependent on me. We're going to have to go our separate ways sometime.

Paulina: No, we won't, not for a long time.

Ken: Sooner than you think.

Paulina: Look, I really don't want to talk about this, all right?

Ken: Paulina --

Paulina: No!

Ken: Be realistic.

Paulina: I mean, you -- you changed my life. Now you think you can just walk right out of it? I'm sorry, I won't let you.

Iris: Back to work?

Rachel: Yes. I think Cory Enterprises has been too long without its CEO.

Iris: But it hasn't been without its CEO. I've been handling those duties very well.

Rachel: Yes, I understand that, iris, but it's too much work for one person.

Iris: No, really, I love it.

Rachel: You have your hands full as president of Cory Publishing.

Iris: But so much of what I do overlaps into Cory Enterprises anyway.

Rachel: Yes, and I don't think it ought to. Anyway, it's too much work for one person.

Iris: Rachel, you've been away so long.

Rachel: Not so long -- just a few months. Anyway, I'm really anxious to get back into the saddle again.

Iris: But surely you're not going to try and resume your duties as chairman?

Rachel: I'm not going to just try. I'm going to do it, iris.

Iris: Well, this is a tremendous surprise.

Rachel: Well, it oughtn't be. I mean, this was part of our agreement. I was just on temporary leave.

Iris: Yes, I realize that. It's just that I'm -- I'm concerned about the timing.

Rachel: What concern?

Iris: Well, the -- the timing.

Rachel: Yes, you just said that.

Iris: You've got so much -- you've got so many personal things to do -- I mean, you've got so much that needs your attention.

Rachel: Cory needs my attention.

Iris: I was talking about Amanda. I mean, her personal life is just --

Rachel: Is her own business.

Iris: Yes -- yes, it is. But you know, she really looks to you for guidance, and I think she needs your help. I think she needs you to be there.

Rachel: Well, I certainly will be there, and it won't interfere with my work.

Iris: What about Matthew?

Rachel: What about him?

Iris: Little Matthew, he's still at school, and -- I mean, he hasn't even got Josie in his life, and Mitch is off in Africa.

Rachel: Well, little Matthew isn't so little anymore. He doesn't need 24-hour surveillance.

Iris: No. You know, I think it is wonderful the way you've been attending to your family and helping them out. And now you've got ken in your life.

Rachel: Well, as you just noted, I don't really have ken in my life.

Iris: Well, what about Paulina?

Rachel: What about her?

Iris: You know, Rachel, I've been looking to you to try and disprove this claim of hers.

Rachel: Yes, well, we certainly will find out one way or the other.

Iris: But when?

Rachel: When we have all the facts.

Iris: Yes, but in the meantime, I mean, she's living in your house. Rachel, it is imperative, absolutely imperative that you keep her under control.

Rachel: Under control?

Iris: Yes, for Daddy's sake.

Rachel: Well, you know, I think it's just terrific you're being so solicitous about my family, iris. But you know what? I can handle it all. And I will still be coming back as CEO of Cory Enterprises.

Iris: [Laughs] So -- well, we'll see you at work, then.

Rachel: Yes, you certainly will.

Iris: Well, I'm -- I'm going to really love working with you again, Rachel.

Rachel: Good.

Iris: I mean, really. It'll be wonderful.

Rachel: Great.

Iris: And you'll have to forgive me -- I've got such a lot to do.

Rachel: I'll bet.

Iris: I'll talk to you later. Bye.

Rachel: Ok, bye. [Laughs] She hates it.

[Doorbell rings]

Vicky: Just a sec! Ow.

Vicky: Jamie.

Jamie: Hi. Pretty flowers.

Vicky: Yeah, aren't they? They're from Jake.

Jamie: Really?

Vicky: Yeah. What -- for Steven?

Jamie: No, for you.

Vicky: [Laughing] Oh. Come on in.

Jamie: Thanks. So --

Vicky: Steven's sleeping, but if you want me to wake him up --

Jamie: No -- no, don't disturb him. I came to see Marley. Is she around?

Vicky: No. She's on a date.

Jamie: Jake?

Vicky: Yeah. Picked her up in a limo, no less.

Jamie: Really, no kidding.

Vicky: He has sent -- sent flowers, perfume, bonbons.

Jamie: That sounds like Ralph Bellamy in an old movie.

Vicky: Who?

Jamie: Eh --

Vicky: No -- he is some romantic, I guess.

Jamie: I thought you couldn't stand Jake.

Vicky: Me?

Jamie: What happened?

Vicky: Oh, well, I changed for the better. I figured Jake could, too, I guess.

Jamie: I guess it's possible.

Vicky: Well, it doesn't matter what I think anyway. Whoa! I mean, he's in love with Marley --

[Jamie and Vicky laugh]

Vicky: Not me. So, why'd you come to see her?

Jamie: We have this idea for a clinic.

Vicky: We?

Jamie: A poor area medical facility. I think Marley would help me with the administrative details.

Vicky: Would she?

Jamie: Yeah, why not?

Vicky: Well, the Marley I know would never volunteer for such a depressing job.

Jamie: Well, maybe you don't know her as well as you think you do, Vicky.

Vicky: Well, she -- she's much too sensitive, too fragile.

Jamie: Well, I've gotten to know her, too. I mean, she may be sensitive, but she's not fragile. She has enormous strength. She'd be perfect for the job.

Vicky: Well, well, what conviction. I mean, you're obviously very passionate about having Marley work on this project with you.

Jamie: I'll need her help, yes.

Vicky: Help? Maybe just her mere presence.

Jamie: I have to go.

Vicky: Jamie, you're beginning to see Marley in a whole new light, aren't you?

Jamie: Vicky, I have no idea what you're talking about.

Vicky: You seldom do.

Jamie: I just think that Marley would be a tremendous help. We work well together.

Vicky: What makes you think that?

Jamie: She seems eager, committed.

Vicky: The way I was.

Jamie: What?

Vicky: You know, when I volunteered to be a candy striper at the hospital, I was more than willing to give of myself.

Jamie: Vicky --

Vicky: What?

Jamie: You were the pits.

Vicky: [Gasps] Oh, come on!

Jamie: You know you were.

Vicky: I'm -- just because I hated that old what's-her-name supervisor and I refused to wear that dorky looking uniform --

Jamie: And you never were where you were supposed to be, and you were always in my way.

Vicky: Oh, so what you're saying is that you and Marley would work perfectly together. Is that it?

Jamie: What I'm saying is that I'm excited about this project, and that is all I'm saying.

Vicky: Wonderful. [Laughs]

Jamie: Tell her I came by.

Vicky: You know, I have a -- a brand new passion, too.

Jamie: I'll call her later, ok?

Vicky: Don't you want to know what it is?

Jamie: Of course. What is it?

Vicky: Horses.

Jamie: Horses?

Vicky: Mm-hmm.

Jamie: Vicky, are you as serious about horses as you were about being a candy striper?

Vicky: Oh, I am desperately serious, Jamie. I have discovered all the pleasures that can be derived from riding, dressage, the whole equine bit.

Jamie: That's funny. I -- I mean, I distinctly remember you saying that horses were dangerous and smelled bad.

Vicky: How could I have been so narrow-minded?

Jamie: Vicky, what changed your mind? Or should I say who?

Vicky: Who said there's a who?

Jamie: Vicky, Vicky --

Vicky: What?

Jamie: This is me.

Vicky: You?

Jamie: Yes.

Vicky: Jamie?

Jamie: Yes.

Vicky: Oh, ok, all right.

Jamie: Do I know him?

Vicky: Mm-mm. I hardly know him. But he's actually very charming. I'm very grateful to him. He -- he helped me see that horses can be a true adventure.

Jake: Donna had nothing to do with it.

Marley: Oh, no?

Jake: Not that she didn't teach me to appreciate things. It's just that I've created this new man.

Marley: Mm-hmm.

Jake: And I'm going to grow in whatever way life takes me.

Marley: [Laughs] I think you've had too much champagne.

Jake: I am serious.

Marley: Oh, boy, are you ever.

Jake: I am going to live from now on in the here-and-now.

Marley: The here-and-now?

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Marley: Ok. Here and now is caviar.

Jake: Caviar?

Marley: Mm-hmm.

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Marley: It's wonderful.

Jake: Let's see what else is here now. You -- looking incredibly beautiful, and me, lucky enough to be sitting across from you.

Felicia: Luke, hi.

Lucas: Hi. Well, have you heard anything yet?

Felicia: No. Cass keeps calling every 15 minutes trying to find out something. You all right?

Lucas: Yeah, I just got a hunch.

Felicia: A hunch?

Lucas: Yeah.

Felicia: Great. Anything. We can use all the help we can get.

Lucas: Yeah. Uh, how long has Josie been here?

Felicia: Oh, I was trying to get her to stay for dinner. The poor kid -- I mean, first her mother, and now Frankie.

Lucas: Yeah, well, I'm going to go talk to her. Josie.

Josie: Lucas. Have you heard anything, any word on Frankie?

Lucas: No, not yet. But I'm sure she's going to be fine.

Josie: I wish I could believe that.

Lucas: Yeah. You really needed this, huh?

Josie: My mom's coming home from the hospital tomorrow.

Lucas: That's great.

Josie: I just hope she doesn't -- I hope she's ok. How much more can she take?

Lucas: Hopefully, very soon she won't have anything to worry about, ok?

Paulina: I still don't understand why you have to go now.

Ken: I told you, I need cash to finance my next expedition. This sunken ship's my best bet.

Paulina: What about you and Rachel?

Ken: There is no me and Rachel.

Paulina: Is that because of me?

Ken: [Laughs] Don't be so egotistical.

[Knock on door]

Paulina: Who is it?

Ken: It's Iris.

Paulina: She didn't see me?

Ken: Get out the back way.

Paulina: Ok.

Ken: Iris.

Iris: Oh, I was afraid no one was home.

Ken: I'm sorry, I was busy.

Iris: It took a lot -- lot of detective work to find out where you live.

Ken: Yes, I can imagine. Well, here you are. What can I do for you?

Iris: Well, could I come in for a moment? I've never seen your home.

Ken: Be it ever so humble.

Iris: Why, it's absolutely charming.

Ken: It's a mess. Excuse the diving gear.

Iris: It must have taken you years to collect all this stuff.

Ken: It took a while, yeah.

Iris: You have excellent taste. Oh, not that I'm surprised at all, with all the different places you've lived in.

Ken: Can I get you something?

Iris: Oh, no. No, no. I just came by because I heard the news.

Ken: Oh?

Iris: About you and Rachel.

Ken: Really?

Iris: I heard that you've stopped seeing one another.

Ken: [Grunts] Do me a favor, will you?

Iris: Yeah?

Ken: Hold that for a second.

Iris: Oh, sure.

Ken: This is the last time I buy equipment without seeing it first. You got it?

Iris: Yes. Got it. You know, I was absolutely shocked when I heard.

Ken: Hold it very still, please. That's it.

Iris: You and Rachel seemed to be getting on so well together.

Ken: Very still. Thanks.

Iris: Look, I'm the last one to play cupid, but Rachel is going through a very delicate stage in her personal life.

Ken: Almost done.

Iris: Ok. I mean, she needs the help, the counsel, the guidance that only a man can give a woman.

Ken: Just two more turns.

Iris: A woman needs romance, not work.

Ken: Yes, well, Rachel's that rare exception among women. She can get along just fine with an attorney and a tax accountant.

Iris: You're right.

Ken: I'm also done, and so are you. Thanks a lot.

Iris: You're welcome.

Ken: Anything else I can do for you?

Iris: Well, uh, no.

Ken: Well, thanks for coming, then.

Iris: Well, no --

Ken: Always nice to see you under any circumstances --

Iris: I just thought that maybe --

Ken: Have a great night.

Iris: If I could --

Ken: Well, I'm so glad you did. Good night.

Jamie: So, you're crazy about horses now?

Vicky: Oh, no. Actually, I'm crazy about the people who ride them. It's a fascinating bunch, this horsy set.

Jamie: So I'm told.

Vicky: Did you know that men were riding horses -- now, this is distinct from riding the chariots that were pulled by horses -- in Assyria and Egypt as early as 4,000 B.C.?

Jamie: Well, actually, I know very little about Assyria and Egypt.

Vicky: You do? Well, you can read all about it. I bought this new book. It's great -- tells all about it. You can check it out while I'm checking on Steven -- two.

Jamie: Sure, why not?

Vicky: Oh -- oh, did you also know that all of the thoroughbreds in the world today are descended from one of three stallions that were imported into -- where was it -- oh, into Britain in the 17th and 18th Century?

Jamie: Really?

Vicky: Fascinating.

Jamie: News to me. Look, Vicky, I'd much rather hear --

Vicky: Just sit there and I'll come back and ask you some equestrian questions.

Jamie: Vicky, I haven't read it in years.

[French music playing]

Jake: Marley?

Marley: Yeah.

Jake: Sorry it took so long.

Marley: It's ok. Did you make your call?

Jake: I most certainly did.

Marley: Good.

Jake: There is a wonderful song playing in there. Would you like to go in and dance?

Marley: Uh, no thanks. Maybe later?

Jake: Ok. What were you -- what were you thinking about before?

Marley: Nothing really important. Why don't you tell me about this move that -- that you're thinking of making.

Jake: Ok. I am probably going to be moving to a condo or a townhouse. As a matter of fact, since you have such great taste, I thought maybe you'd help me out.

Marley: Oh, yeah, sure.

Jake: Great.

Jake: You were thinking about something. What is it?

Marley: Jake, I was just thinking that I need something important in my life.

Jake: What about us? I thought we were important.

Marley: No, we are, but -- something of my own, something that I can care about. I was thinking of looking for a job.

Jake: Job?

Marley: Yeah.

Jake: That's great.

Marley: You think?

Jake: Mm-hmm. I think.

Marley: Good. So, I think I better go home because I'm gonna start looking tomorrow.

Jake: Let's go.

Marley: Ok. Thanks.

Felicia: Hey, I want to know what you're thinking -- you know, the hunch.

Lucas: Fanny, I'm just trying to work some things out, that's all.

Felicia: What things? Come on, Luke, tell me.

[Phone rings]

Felicia: What do you want to bet that's Cass? Tops. Hi, honey. Yeah. No, not a thing. Honey -- no, you're not bothering me. Don't be silly. Yes. Yes, I will, as soon as I hear anything -- I promise. I love you, too. I'll talk to you soon. Bye-bye.

Lucas: He's got to be going nuts.

Felicia: It's just so strange.

Lucas: What is?

Felicia: Whoever took Frankie, you'd think they'd send a ransom note, wouldn't you?

Lucas: You haven't heard from anybody?

Felicia: Not a word. And why Frankie?

Lucas: I don't know, maybe the kidnappers made a mistake.

Felicia: How can a kidnapping be a mistake?

Lucas: I don't know. That's what I'm trying to figure out.

Felicia: Well, then -- is that what your hunch is? I mean, what -- what you think? They what -- they went to the wrong address or the wrong wedding? What?

Ted's voice: I'll have an answer for you after the wedding.

Lucas: Maybe it was the wrong woman.

>> Sister moon will be my guide in your blue, blue shadows I would hide all good people asleep tonight I'm all by myself in your silver light I would gaze

ken: You know, nothing will happen if it isn't what you want too.

Rachel: I guess I'm not very comfortable with this.

Ken: I know. Don't worry about it. It's ok.

Ken: Wait.

Rachel: Isn't this what you want?

Ken: But it isn't what you want.

Rachel: I guess I'm not sure.

[Door closes]

Paulina: Hi.

Rachel: Hello, Paulina. Did you have a nice evening out?

Paulina: Yeah, it was good. I went to see a movie.

Rachel: Wait good?

Paulina: It was all right. How about you? Did you have a nice evening?

Rachel: Yes, I had a nice visit with Jamie, and Iris came over.

Paulina: Iris?

Rachel: Oh, yes. I'll be resuming my duties over at Cory Enterprises, so I needed to tell her that.

Paulina: Did she bring my name up?

Rachel: Briefly.

Paulina: So, what did you tell her? I mean, how does it stand?

Rachel: It stands pretty much as it did before. Don't worry, you'll know something as soon as we know something.

Paulina: You've been really great about including me. I really appreciate it. Well, I -- I guess I'll say good night.

Rachel: Good night.

Paulina: Um, Rachel?

Rachel: Yes?

Paulina: I noticed that Ken hasn't been around here much lately, and -- well, I know I've complicated your life a whole lot. I just hope that I'm not the cause of any problems you might have.

Paulina: Good.

Rachel: Everything's as it should be.

Paulina: Great, ok. I -- I'll see you tomorrow.

Rachel: Ok, have a good sleep.

Felicia: What do you mean, "wrong woman"? I mean, who else could they be after? And Frankie, you know, is pretty hard to be mistaken with that long, red, flaming hair. And it was a small wedding -- I mean, who else could it be? What, Rachel, you think, or Amanda --

Lucas: Look, Fanny, why don't we just forget this?

Felicia: But you know there'd be a ransom note if it was them. No, no, I think we ought to pursue this.

Lucas: Fanny --

Felicia: Now, wait a minute. Who else was at this wedding? There was Josie and Olivia.

Lucas: They're too young.

Felicia: All right, let's talk about what people had on. Frankie was in pink, right? She had on this pink -- pale pink thing. Who else had pink on? Sharlene had a pink dress on.

Lucas: Yeah, she did.

Felicia: They both had on pink sort of --

Lucas: Ok, so maybe the kidnapper did make a mistake.

Felicia: Well, he couldn't have been a very good kidnapper. Besides, that doesn't make any sense. I mean, who would want Sharlene? She's a doctor's wife and she's got emotional problems.

Lucas: You're right. Forget it. Look, just forget it, ok? I'm going to go check something out.

Felicia: What, you have another idea?

Lucas: Just let me go check this out, all right?

Felicia: Come on, Luke, where are you going?

Lucas: Fanny, I'll handle it, ok? Just -- just forget about it. Don't worry. I'll take care of it.

Felicia: Come on, Cass, call me.

Jake: Well, that was a wonderful evening.

Marley: Yes, it was. Thank you.

Jake: No, thank you.

Marley: Thank you. Thank you. I think I better go in.

Jake: Does it have to end?

Marley: What do you mean?

Jake: Well, I was just thinking, I had such a great time. I don't want this evening to end.

Marley: Well, it -- it's kind of late.

Jake: Maybe --

Marley: What?

Jake: I was just going to suggest that maybe you --

Marley: Say it, Jake.

Jamie: You know what I remember?

Vicky: I don't know your memories.

Jamie: Well, let me tell you, then.

Vicky: Ok.

Jamie: After you'd given all of that up and you were pregnant with Steven, you organized this whole thanksgiving day for the kids and the pets who couldn't go home.

Vicky: Oh, yeah, I was a pregnant Pocahontas with long, blonde braids.

Jamie: I remember. You were wonderful.

Vicky: Thanks.

Jamie: You're welcome. This was a nice evening, Vicky. I mean, we actually did listen to each other -- rather, I listened to you.

Vicky: Did I bore you?

Jamie: You did go on a bit.

Vicky: Oh, come on.

Jamie: Yeah.

Vicky: I probably told you more about horses than you thought you would ever know.

Jamie: That's true.

[Vicky laughs]

Jamie: I'm glad that you found something that you like.

Vicky: Thanks. You know, maybe we could take Steven riding together sometime.

Jamie: Sounds great. Look, kiss him good night for me, ok?

Vicky: Mm-hmm.

Jamie: Tell him I'll pick him up in the morning.

Vicky: Ok.

Jamie: All right.

Vicky: Jamie. I -- I think we've gotten past all the anger. I'm really glad.

Jamie: Come here.
