Sharlene: Finally. Ah! "As soon as we get back" -- John, we finally heard from the newlyweds. "As soon as we get back, we are going to have you guys to dinner and tell you all about everything."

John: Sharlene? There you are.

Sharlene: [Laughs]

John: I was looking all over for you.

Sharlene: I wonder if they mean tonight. Well, I was out at the mail -- look, we finally heard from Cass and Frankie.

John: Oh, yeah. You know, they're supposed to be back sometime today, weren't they?

Sharlene: Yeah, they're supposed to be back at 7:00 tonight. I think that's what it says. It sounds like they had an incredible time.

John: Yeah, I guess they did. Listen, Sharlene, I need --

Sharlene: You know what I think? I think we ought to have them to dinner tonight. If we had them to dinner -- Frankie is going to be exhausted, John.

John: Sharlene, I need to talk to you.

Sharlene: And I can make lasagna because that is Cass' favorite.

John: Sharlene, please. Sharlene. Would you just listen to me for five minutes?

Sharlene: I'm sorry, yeah.

John: I've been trying to find some good way to say this, and, well, I realized there never will be a good time. There's something that you have to know.

Rachel: How am I feeling? Why, do I still look hung over?

Ken: Well, as a matter of fact, you look great.

Rachel: Good.

Ken: I can't remember seeing you look better.

Rachel: Yes, no, I'm fine. All recovered.

Ken: Good. I have some news.

Rachel: About what?

Ken: I had great success at that breakfast meeting. I've got some additional funding.

Rachel: For the expedition?

Ken: Yes, we're just about set to go.

Rachel: Oh, that's wonderful.

Ken: Yeah, I'm really looking forward to it.

Rachel: I bet you are.

Ken: That's not what I came to say.

Rachel: What did you come to say?

Ken: Rachel, look. About last night. It was terrific.

Iris: There you are, Rachel.

Rachel: Oh, Iris, I was looking for you.

Iris: Ken.

Ken: Hello, Iris.

Iris: I wanted to check with you about the revisions for the annual report.

Rachel: Did you read them?

Iris: Well, yes, but I just thought there might be something that you wanted to add.

Rachel: I think Amanda did a terrific job. I think it should go out that way.

Iris: Fine. Excuse me.

Ken: Excuse me.

Rachel: What's going on with you and Iris?

Ken: What's going on?

Rachel: Yes, she acted very different as soon as she saw you.

Ken: Well, I started to tell you last night. We had something of a run-in.

Rachel: About what?

Ken: Paulina.

Jake: Paulina, wait. You want to tell Marley about us?

Paulina: Why not?

Jake: Because.

Paulina: I thought you said you cared about me.

Jake: I do.

Paulina: So?

Jake: It's just that --

Paulina: Just what? I can't think of a single reason why you'd want to keep us a secret. Unless, of course, you've been lying to me about it being over with Marley. What do you want with me, Jake?

Grant: Josie.

Josie: Congressman Harrison.

Grant: What a nice surprise. Come on in.

Josie: This isn't a social visit.

Grant: What's the matter? Is it -- is -- your mother? Is she all right?

Josie: Oh, yeah. She's all right -- considering.

Grant: Well, then, what's the problem?

Josie: You. You are the problem. I want you to stay away from my mother.

Grant: So you know.

Josie: Oh, yeah. Yeah, I know.

Grant: Did she tell you?

Josie: My mother is going to have a baby.

Grant: Yes, I am very well aware of that.

Josie: And she doesn't need you around to confuse her.

Grant: I have never wanted to confuse her.

Josie: I don't believe you.

Grant: Josie, don't you understand that I respect and care for your mother more than I could ever tell you. I would never hurt her.

Josie: You already have.

Grant: Did somebody send you over here?

Josie: What, oh, you think that I couldn't think of this on my own?

Grant: No, no, I didn't say that.

Josie: I am not a child. I don't need someone to tell me what to do. I make my own decisions.

Grant: Yes, I -- you remind me a lot of your mother, especially now that you're so angry.

Josie: I have to go.

Grant: Josie. Wait. I just want to tell you that I think that Sharlene is very, very lucky to have a daughter like you. I understand you've been staying out at the farm for a while.

Josie: Yes, I moved back in. I wanted to be close to her.

Grant: Josie, I think that's terrific. Because I know how much you mean to her.

Josie: Well, it's the least I could do, considering.

Grant: Tell me, does your mother get out? I mean, I hate to think of her cooped up in that house all the time.

Josie: She gets out once in a while. She takes walks mostly.

Grant: That's good. I'm glad.

Josie: If there aren't any reporters around.

Grant: Well, yeah, that must be very hard.

Josie: John and I take care of her.

Grant: But I'm sure that you are very good for her.

Josie: I really have to go.

Grant: No, Josie, not yet. There's something I want you to know.

Sharlene: So they meant to kidnap me. And Frankie could have been killed because of me.

John: Grant's aide wanted you out of Grant's life.

Sharlene: Why didn't I know about this, John?

John: I wanted to tell you.

Sharlene: Then why didn't you? You had the perfect opportunity when you told me about the kidnapping.

John: I didn't know about this then. Things have been rather difficult for you -- for all of us lately. I thought you had enough to worry about.

Sharlene: John, I don't want to be protected. I told you and Taylor that before. How fragile do you think I am?

John: I don't know. I don't know anymore.

Sharlene: My whole therapy is about facing the truth. How can I face the truth if I don't know what the truth is?

John: Look, things have been happening rather quickly for us lately, Sharlene.

Sharlene: What do you mean?

John: You had a breakthrough after the kidnapping. Benson stepped up your therapy. You found out that you were pregnant. It's been one thing after another, Sharlene. I'm sorry.

Sharlene: I am, too. I'm -- I'm so --

John: How are you feeling?

Sharlene: I'm tired. I didn't sleep well last night. Did you hear anything about the test?

John: We should know sometime this week.

Sharlene: This week?

John: Yeah.

Sharlene: I'm going to go outside for a while. I think I need a walk.

John: You want me to go with you?

Sharlene: No, I'd rather go alone. If that's ok with you.

Paulina: You haven't said anything.

Jake: I don't want anything from you, Paulina.

Paulina: So, last night --

Jake: Was nice.

Paulina: But it doesn't change anything between you and Marley.

Jake: Marley is my ex-wife, and it's going to stay that way.

Paulina: A real friendly ex.

Jake: What are you getting at?

Paulina: Jake, every single time I walk into the loft, you and her are together.

Jake: Oh, come on, not every time.

Paulina: Why did you ask her out on a date?

Jake: Because I told you. I'm going to break it off with her tonight.

Paulina: If I thought that you were lying to me --

Jake: Look, Paulina. I care about you more than you know.

Jake: The reason I don't want you to say anything about us is not for Marley, it's for you.

Paulina: You want to explain that one to me?

Jake: I'm looking out for you. I am protecting you.

Paulina: From what?

Jake: You are in a very sensitive situation with the Corys, especially Rachel and Iris.

Paulina: I don't see what that has to do with --

Jake: I am not high on either one of their lists, particularly Rachel. She's very fond of Marley.

Paulina: So you think that if Rachel knew that we were seeing each other --

Jake: What do you think?

Paulina: No, Rachel's not like that.

Jake: Let me tell you something. Never cross Rachel Cory. And as far as Iris is concerned --

Paulina: I gave up a long time ago trying to make nice with Iris.

Jake: The point is those women could come down on you. And if they do, you can kiss your claim to being a Cory good-bye.

Paulina: So what are we supposed to do, Jake? Sneak around behind everybody's backs?

Jake: No. Just cool it for a while.

Paulina: I hate that. I hate secrets. I am so sick of keeping secrets.

Jake: What do you mean?

Rachel: Iris has accused you of having something going on with Paulina.

Ken: Before each of us arrived in Bay City.

Rachel: Where does Iris get her ideas?

Ken: Well, I have seen her in action before, so it doesn't come as that much of a surprise.

Rachel: Why didn't you tell me about this?

Ken: I tried to last night.

Rachel: You did?

Ken: Yes, I did but --

Rachel: I wasn't listening.

Ken: Well, you had other things on your mind.

Rachel: I will talk to Iris.

Ken: You know, in a way, I -- I don't altogether blame Iris.

Rachel: For what?

Ken: Well, Paulina and I did come into your life at about the same time. It must have seemed more than a little coincidental.

Rachel: It was a coincidence, wasn't it?

Ken: Yeah, but you must have had lots of questions about my connection with Mac and Maria.

Rachel: Yes, I did.

Ken: And now?

Rachel: No.

Ken: What changed your mind?

Rachel: You.

Ken: That's good to hear.

Rachel: If you care for me --

Ken: And I do. Very much.

Rachel: Then you wouldn't do that to me. You wouldn't be involved with Paulina.

Josie: I just want you to know how sorry I am about all the publicity, hasn't been easy for my mother.

Grant: I know. And I wish there was something that I could have done. And I know how important your mother's privacy is to her right now.

Josie: Yes. Yes, it is. Fortunately, John and the Police have been able to keep the press away from us.

Grant: Really? But, I mean, surely the reporters must see her when she is out on one of those walks that you mentioned.

Josie: No.

Grant: I mean, how can you be sure about that?

Josie: Because there's a private road leading from the farm to the Old mill. And none of the reporters have come on to it yet, thank God.

Grant: Well, that's good. Now, listen, I do have a meeting that I have to get to.

Josie: I meant what I said, congressman.

Grant: I'm sure you did.

Josie: Please let my mother get on with her life.

Grant: You know, nobody could ever fault you for wanting to protect her.

Josie: I'm glad you understand.

Grant: I hope you know that I meant what I said, that I want only the best for Sharlene.

Josie: I hope so.

Grant: I'm glad we had this little talk.

Josie: Good-bye.

Grant: Good-bye.

Grant: Hello. Yeah, this is Congressman Harrison. I want you to get my car ready. Right now.

John's voice: You know what I found when you were gone?

Sharlene: What?

John: One night I couldn't sleep. So I got up, and I drove around. Do you remember the Old mill?

Sharlene: Oh, sure.

John: The place was so beautiful. And I promised that I would take you there when you got home. Let's go right now.

Sharlene: I would love to.

John: Great. Come on.

Sharlene: We haven't been there since that night when we threw coins and you brought dinner for --

Sharlene: I made a wish. Now you make one, too.

Grant: Oh, no, no, no. Bad for my image.

Sharlene: There's nobody here but us.

Grant: Ok, ok.

[Coin dropping in water]

Sharlene: That wasn't so hard, was it?

Grant: No.

Sharlene: What'd you wish for?

Grant: Oh, come on, come on. That's bad luck. I can't tell you that.

Jake: Paulina?

Paulina: Secrets have been a big part of my life ever since I've come to Bay City.

Jake: Really.

Paulina: Look, Jake, I'm sure you've heard about the stories I told the Corys in order to get them to hire me as a nanny.

Jake: Yes, you're right. I've heard.

Paulina: Well, I'm not proud of that. But it worked, and that's all I cared about at the time.

Jake: You did what you had to do, right?

Paulina: Yeah, I did. I didn't like lying to people though. Especially people I thought were my family.

Jake: Why, that must have been rough.

Paulina: It was. I mean, I wanted them to like me so much, and they kept catching me in lie after lie.

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Paulina: But that's all over with now, you see. From now on, I'm straight with everyone, no matter what. I tell the truth.

Jake: Good for you.

Paulina: Yeah, and good for everyone else, too.

Jake: I only have one question though.

Paulina: What?

Jake: Well, telling everybody about us, how's that going to help anything?

Paulina: How could it hurt?

Jake: Like I said, I have a checkered past.

Paulina: Hmm, not you.

Jake: Wouldn't be a lie. It's just not the right timing. I'm only thinking of you, Paulina.

Paulina: Ok. I guess I don't have to tell them about us right away --

Jake: Hey, hey, hey. I know it's frustrating. It's frustrating for me, too. But it won't be long.

Paulina: No.

Jake: No.

Paulina: Not long.

Jake: Mm-mmm. As soon as Rachel buys you're a Cory, you can tell her.

Paulina: And Marley?

Jake: Sure.

Paulina: Sure?

Jake: Sure. Why don't you take the rest of the day off?

Paulina: The rest of the day off?

Jake: Mm-hmmm.

Paulina: Oh, I have not finished my work.

Jake: You don't have to. I've got meetings all day. There's not much for you to do anyway.

Paulina: Well, I guess I could go see how Rachel is doing.

Jake: Go, go see Rachel. See you later.

Paulina: Later.

Paulina: Thanks, Jake.

Jake: Thanks for what?

Paulina: Caring about me.

Jake: Hmm. Go. Get, get, get.

Jake's voice: We can skip the polite chitchat.

Iris: Fine, let's get straight down to it.

Jake: Which is?

Iris: That offer I made you regarding Paulina. Have you had a chance to think about it?

Jake: I think about a lot of things, Iris.

Iris: I'm sure you do. Especially about how you're going to pay your bills.

Jake: Well, it entered my mind from time to time.

Iris: Well, if you want to hang onto Visions, you're going to have to pay those bills, Jake.

Jake: Let me tell you something. I've been strapped for cash before.

Iris: Ah, but not with so much at stake.

Jake: Something will turn up.

Iris: Oh, something has. You see, Paulina is moving out of Vicky's into the Cory mansion. I want you stuck to that girl like a wet T-shirt. I want you to tell me everything she does. Everything she thinks. Do you understand?

Paulina's voice: What I'm trying to say is that I don't do this anymore. But when you said what you did tonight, that no guy has ever cared enough about me to do that. That's when I knew how much I want to make love with you.

Jake: Paulina --

Paulina: I know you could never hurt me, Jake.

[Phone rings]

Jake: Visions.

Iris: What's your excuse this time, Jake?

Jake: It's always a pleasure to hear from you, Iris.

Iris: I'm sure. We've got a deal. You made promises.

Jake: Well, it's a done deal.

Iris: What?

Jake: The bug is in Paulina's bedroom.

Iris: Are you serious?

Jake: You can send that last payment now, Iris.

Iris: That's terrific, Jake. You've done well, very well.

Jake: Oh, and by the way, Iris, I'm not above accepting a bonus.

Iris: So, it's all set. I've finally got her.

Ken: Oh, gosh.

Rachel: What?

Ken: I have another meeting I'm late for. I really should get going. I got a thousand things to do before the expedition.

Rachel: I expect you do.

Ken: So, I will see you later

Rachel: Ok.

Ken: Hello.

Iris: I'm sorry to interrupt again, but I've just finished reading Amanda's report. And I think it's fine. We should go with it.

Rachel: Good. I need to talk to you.

Iris: Well, can't it wait? I've got work to do --

Rachel: No, it can't wait.

Ken: Rachel, I'll see you soon.

Rachel: All right. Sit down, Iris.

Iris: If it's going to be one of those talks, I think I should stand.

Rachel: The "Sophisticate" report could have cost us dearly.

Iris: Yes, but fortunately we caught the errors in time.

Rachel: We caught them? I don't recall you catching anything.

Iris: Are you accusing me of something, Rachel?

Rachel: At the very minimum, of negligence.

Iris: And at the very most?

Rachel: You're president of Cory Publishing, Iris. A cursory look at the financials would have indicated to you that the numbers were all wrong.

Iris: Ok, it got by me. I let it slip through my fingers. It hasn't happened before. It won't happen again. That I can promise you. Now, is there anything else?

Rachel: Yes, there is.

Iris: Would you like me to sit for this, too?

Rachel: You didn't go out to dinner with a client last night, did you?

Iris: No, I did not go out to dinner with a client last night. I went to talk to Ken about Paulina, which you obviously know already about.

Rachel: Why do you think something's going on between Ken and Paulina?

Iris: When it comes to Ms. Cantrell, I think it's my duty to explore every possibility.

Rachel: I think you're becoming obsessive about Paulina.

Iris: You call it an obsession. I call it acting responsibly.

Rachel: You're going after innocent people, Iris. I'm going to have to put a stop to that.

Taylor: John.

John: Hi. You are probably wondering when I was going to get to this, weren't you?

Taylor: Well, actually, I was going to call a handyman.

John: What for? I told you I could knock this out in about five minutes.

Taylor: How -- how long have you been doing this?

John: Well, several hours. But I'm almost done, see?

Taylor: As if you don't have anything better to do than to fix my railing.

John: Actually, I was off today. I got up early, took a shower, read the paper, and made breakfast. I read the paper again, made lunch, read the paper again, and there was nothing good on TV, so --

Taylor: I don't get it.

John: I hope you don't mind. I hope that you don't think it's presumptuous of me just to come over and drop by --

Taylor: Oh, no, I'm always glad to see you. You know that. It's just -- I don't know why you're not home. I mean, I know your schedule. I think you'd jump at the chance to spend the day with your wife.

John: Yeah, I guess you would think that, wouldn't you?

Taylor: What happened?

John: Oh, nothing really.

Taylor: Did you have an argument?

John: No, no, not exactly. We got a postcard from Cass and Frankie. And I told Sharlene all about the kidnapping. She was upset because I had not told her the whole truth again. And she's not sleeping well. And I'm not sleeping well. And things get a little strange whenever the subject of her pregnancy comes up.

Taylor: And it must come up pretty often.

John: Maybe it's impossible for things to be right until we get the test results for the paternity.

Taylor: Maybe.

John: The question is, what do we do to then? I mean, how do you live like this?

Taylor: Well, you want my professional opinion, it's --

John: No, I don't. I don't want your professional opinion. Not now or any time in near future, at least not for the next couple of hours.

Taylor: Ok.

John: I came here to fix this.

John: And to visit a friend.

Grant: Sharlene. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to frighten you.

Sharlene: What are you -- how did you find me?

Grant: Josie came to see me.

Sharlene: Josie? What would she be doing seeing --

Grant: She came to tell me to stay away from you.

Sharlene: And I want you to stay away from her. I don't want you talking to her anymore. Do you understand?

Grant: She came to me, Sharlene. And she told me that you come down here often to get away.

Sharlene: Because you made her tell you.

Grant: I just wanted to -- I wanted to see you. That's all.

Sharlene: Why?

Grant: I just want to make sure that you're ok. That the pregnancy was going well and --

Sharlene: I'm fine.

Grant: Good. That's good.

Sharlene: We've been here before.

Grant: How did you know?

Sharlene: I've remembered some things.

Grant: Does that bother you, when you remember certain things that happened between the two of us?

Sharlene: No, actually, it doesn't. It helps me to understand you a little bit better.

Grant: Well, is that good or bad?

Sharlene: Well, I know that you didn't come down here just to talk about my pregnancy.

Grant: Why else?

Sharlene: I don't know. I don't know. I just know it has to be more than that.

Grant: Yeah, you're right. There is. I just wanted to tell you that I will stay out of your life if that's what you really want.

Sharlene: You know that's what I want.

Grant: I thought maybe the pregnancy might have changed things.

Sharlene: What things? What would have changed?

Grant: Well, Sharlene, if there ever comes a time when John can't accept the pregnancy, I want you to know that I'm here. And I will be waiting for you and the baby.

Sharlene: John is handling this. He's thrilled about my pregnancy. He's ecstatic. He can hardly wait for this child to be born -- his child.

Grant: Yeah, but --

Sharlene: No, there are no buts. John and I both know that this is his child, and we'll have proof of that in just a few days.

Grant: Proof?

Sharlene: Yes, I had a test done.

Grant: Ah. Well, I'm sure that when the results come back, it'll confirm the fact that John is the father of the baby. And also when the results come back, it'll probably allow you two to lead a more normal existence.

Sharlene: Yes, I hope so.

Grant: Listen, I hope I didn't upset you when I said I really wanted to be there waiting for you --

Sharlene: Look, I don't want to talk anymore. I have to go.

Grant: I just wanted you to know that I was very honest that I will always be there for you and that's how much I cared.

Sharlene: Fine, now I know.

Grant: Also, there's something else that I want to give you. Something that might -- something that might help you.

Sharlene: What is this?

Grant: It's the key to my suite.

[Laughter]

Reuben: Oh, that corn should be ready for shucking. Not to mention jiving.

Josie: Oh, hey. Well, you'll just have to come by next week for a shuck-n-jive party.

Reuben: Oh, you know what's funny? The air actually smells different out here.

Josie: Yeah, it does.

Reuben: I mean, I like it though. I'm just not used to breathing air I can't see.

Josie: Well, you know, farms are very, very healthy places.

Reuben: Oh, yeah, and exciting, too. I mean, you get to churn your own butter, shovel out the barn. And not to mention those quilting bees.

Josie: Oh, but the problem is finding bees who can sew.

Reuben: Oh! Oh, you are so funny. Try to find a bee they can sew. Oh, that's good.

Josie: Oh, Reuben, I've missed you. I'm sorry.

[Laughter]

Reuben: Oh, man. So, is everything ok out here?

Josie: Yeah, it's fine.

Reuben: Yeah?

Josie: It's quiet, but I could use a little quiet right now.

Reuben: Unlike where we were last year this time, remember that?

Josie: Oh, New York.

Reuben: Ooh, yeah.

Josie: That definitely wasn't quiet.

Reuben: Ah, remember the sirens?

Josie: Hmm.

Reuben: I remember one night. There was this one night, a siren went off every two minutes. Every two minutes.

Josie: Well, I was always hoping they'd just scare those cockroaches away.

Reuben: Oh, no, nothing scares them cockroaches. I remember one night -- this was so funny. I put down one of those killer motels, and this cockroach just stared at me and started cracking up.

Josie: Yeah, so did I.

Reuben: Oh, man.

Josie: We laughed a lot in those days, didn't we?

Reuben: Yeah, we did.

Josie: We had fun.

Reuben: Yeah, we had lot of fun. But you're not laughing too much these days, are you?

Josie: Reuben, it's been hard. I feel like I am a million years older than I was last year.

Reuben: It's your Mom, isn't it?

Josie: I should have seen what was happening a long time ago.

Reuben: Oh, come on, Josie. How could you see it when nobody else could?

Josie: Maybe if I wasn't so involved with my own career.

Reuben: Yeah, well. You're here now, right? And that's what counts.

Josie: I don't know if that's enough, Reuben.

Reuben: Well, what else can you do?

Josie: I can give up my career.

Iris: What exactly are you saying, Rachel?

Rachel: I can't let you run roughshod over people.

Iris: Rachel, you said you'd give me a couple of weeks to check this out.

Rachel: Harassing Ken is not checking things out, Iris.

Iris: Oh, boy. Is that what he told you? That I was harassing him?

Rachel: I think you would do anything you could to discredit Paulina.

Iris: I will not accept that imposter into this family.

Rachel: Oh, stop it, Iris.

Iris: No, you stop it. Stop rushing things.

Rachel: We have to put this behind us, Iris.

Iris: No matter what?

Rachel: We can't prove that she isn't Mac's daughter. What is this?

Iris: There is nothing in that little opportunist -- absolutely nothing that resembles my father. Nothing.

[Phone rings]

Rachel: Yes? Yes, send her in. Paulina is on her way here, but I'm not finished with you yet.

Iris: I don't think there's any point in continuing this discussion, Rachel. We both know where the other stands.

Rachel: This is about Jake.

Iris: What about Jake?

Rachel: Marley says that you're working Jake too hard.

Iris: Oh, really?

Rachel: They don't have enough time for a personal life.

Iris: Well, he hasn't mentioned anything to me. I guess he has been looking a little pale lately.

Rachel: Well, suppose you pull him back off of this special project you've got him working on?

Iris: Well, if that's what you want, of course. I'll talk to him about it.

Rachel: I don't suppose you'd tell me a little bit about the project.

Paulina: Hi.

Rachel: Hello, Paulina.

Iris: Good afternoon. Rachel.

Rachel: Well, Paulina, I didn't expect you to be back. You're not working?

Paulina: No, Jake gave me the rest of the day off. He has meetings all afternoon. So I thought I'd come by and see how you're doing.

Rachel: Oh, I'm fine.

Paulina: Good.

Rachel: Listen, do you think Jake could give you a couple of hours off tomorrow, too?

Paulina: Probably.

Rachel: Why don't you ask him?

Paulina: Is there a reason I can give him?

Rachel: Yes. I think maybe we might have some news about you.

Reuben: Come again?

Josie: It was fun while it lasted.

Reuben: It was more than just fun, Josie. It was your career, and you lived for it.

Josie: I know. I know that, Reuben, and I lost a lot.

Reuben: But you wised up. I mean, it won't happen again. Josie, you had something special, something most people just dream about. You can go places.

Josie: That's just it, Reuben. I don't know if I want to go anywhere.

Reuben: So, what are you going to do, huh? Stay here? Have a career milking cows?

Josie: Hey, there is nothing wrong with that.

Reuben: Maybe not for some people. But you -- you're Josie Watts. You're the next super model. Josie, listen to me. You ain't some farm girl.

Josie: Look, Reuben, my family has worked farms for generations.

Reuben: Yeah, but you're different. Josie, you were meant for big things. Josie, listen to me. You moved out here for your Mom, and that was fine. But to forget about your home, your life, your career.

Josie: Reuben, my life and my career are two different things.

Reuben: All right. Ok. I just think you're going to go crazy out here. Probably end up burning down the whole house in a kitchen fire.

Josie: Well, thank you for your optimism.

Reuben: I'm trying to be serious with you.

Josie: I'm being serious, too, Reuben. I've really been thinking about this. And I think this is something that I have to do.

[Phone rings]

Josie: Hello. This is Josie Watts. Oh, I don't believe this. Yeah, I'm here. No, no, I don't think -- no, I wont be available for that shoot.

Reuben: Oh, give me the phone.

Josie: Reuben!

Reuben: Hello, who is this? Bruce? No, this is Reuben Lawrence here. No, I'm Josie's agent. What do you --

Josie: Don't do this.

Reuben: What, you want to book her on something? Yeah, yeah, yeah, she's available. Yeah, ok. Oh, yeah, for you, any time. What do you want? Yeah, yeah, the fresh faces girl will be there. Looking better than ever. She got this new haircut. You're going to love it. Looking forward to meeting you, too. Ciao. Someday you're going to be glad I just did that.

Josie: Maybe I already am.

Taylor: I brought us something cold to drink.

Radio announcer: Here's the pitch. Fast ball! Hit on the ground to Sandberg. He tosses easily to grace at first to end the game.

John: Yes!

Radio announcer: Cubs win their third in a row!

John: Way to go cubs! Hey.

Taylor: My, my, my. I thought you already fixed that.

John: I was just tightening some screws.

Taylor: Take a break.

John: Thank you. Don't mind if I do.

Taylor: Good.

John: You know, if the cubs aren't careful, they could end up with a season of over 500.

Taylor: I'm more of a Phillies fan myself.

John: Phillies? Oh, come on. How can you admit that? Please, Phillies -- boo ha --

Taylor: Well, I do have a good excuse, you know.

John: No, no, no. Being raised back east is not a good excuse for admiring such a clearly inferior ball club.

Taylor: Inferior? Now, just one minute, Dr. Hudson. You will not stand on my porch and insult my Phillies.

John: All right, all right, all right. No more talk about baseball. We're only going to argue, and it's too hot for that.

Taylor: Well, that's true. But the Phillies truly are --

John: No more.

Taylor: John, you have to admit that trading for Len Dykstra was one of the --

John: Dykstra, Smykstra. Len Dykstra. Let's talk about something else, ok?

Taylor: Ok.

John: What shall we talk about? How about the weather? It's a nice day. Sunshine, cool breeze. No humidity.

Taylor: Perfect for a ball game.

John: Taylor.

Taylor: Ok, ok, ok. Let's see, what can we talk about? We could talk about -- um. Talk about Bay City.

John: Bay City.

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

John: Safe choice.

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

John: Good subject.

Taylor: Mm.

John: How do you like it?

Taylor: Well, it's beginning to feel a little more like home. I like it when I'm working.

John: Oh, yeah? What do you like about it? How about when you're not working?

Taylor: Well, it's just that I don't have too many friends here. You know, all my friends work at the hospital.

John: So, what's wrong with that?

Taylor: Well, it doesn't make for much of a social life.

John: Well, you have to get out. You have to meet people. Mingle.

Taylor: Where, where, where? Clubs, parties?

John: Not your thing, huh?

Taylor: No. I get a little anti-social in both situations.

John: Oh, I can't picture that.

Taylor: Mm-hmm. All right, let me give you an idea.

John: All right.

Taylor: "Yes, I am a psychiatrist. No, it doesn't depress me to talk about -- to talk to sick people all day. What depresses me is sitting at this party talking to jerks like you."

John: You wouldn't really be that mean, would you?

Taylor: Mm, you'd be surprised.

John: Ok. So, you don't like parties, all right. What else? What do you like?

Taylor: Well, I like spending time with friends. I like, well, one on one. You know, one friend at a time. Casual, relaxed. Kind of like we are now.

John: I like that, too. I'm glad I came over.

Taylor: I'm even gladder.

John: Gladder?

Taylor: More gladder.

John: Oh, good.

Taylor: Think of all the money I saved not having to hire a handyman.

John: Hey, listen, they would have charged you a fortune for this.

Taylor: Really?

John: Yes, it turned out to be a major job.

Taylor: You're just trying to get me to feel beholden to you.

John: Yes, I am. But is it working?

Taylor: Actually, it is.

John: Well, good.

Taylor: Why don't you show me what you did?

John: All right, I will. First thing I had to do is take off this whole thing completely.

Taylor: Mm-hmm. That doesn't look too difficult.

John: Well, it's not if you have all the right tools. But they're back at the house.

Taylor: Oh.

John: I didn't happen to have them all.

Taylor: Oh, sorry.

John: And then I tightened up all this stuff down here. You can see. Put this all back together.

Taylor: And this thing?

John: And then this thing I had to replace all together. It was rotted out so --

John: But you'll be able to put as much weight on this now as you'd like.

Taylor: I'll be gentle with it from now on.

John: Good. Listen, I think I'm going to go and wash up.

Taylor: Maybe that would be a good idea.

Sharlene: Why would I want this?

Grant: Sharlene, just let me explain.

Sharlene: No, there is nothing to explain. I have to go.

Grant: No, Sharlene, listen to me. Just listen to me. I want you to understand why I want you to have this key.

Sharlene: Grant, I don't want to know.

Grant: Look, I've been reading about multiple personality disorders and apparently when integration --

Sharlene: I don't want to hear this.

Grant: Has begun, it's very good for the person to visit the places where the alter ego used to frequent.

Sharlene: What are you suggesting?

Grant: I am saying that it would be good for you to come by my apartment on -- when I'm not around, along with Dr. Benson. I mean, you are curious about Sharly, aren't you? Don't you want to know what she was like

Sharlene: Yeah, I'm curious. But that does not mean that I want anything --

Grant: But you don't have to do it right away. You can take your time, and you can use this whenever you want to.

Sharlene: No, I can't possibly --

Grant: Now, take it, take it. And if you don't want it, just throw it away, because I'm not going to take it back. Now, just remember that I will always be there for you, if you need me.

Iris: Jake, things have taken a turn for the worse.

Jake: No kidding.

Iris: Which is why I am desperate to get the proof that Paulina's claim is a scam.

Jake: I can't just make up proof, Iris.

Iris: Well, let me hear the tape.

Jake: Be my guest, but I'm sure you're not going to find anything incriminating.

Iris: Is the bug still operating?

Jake: Perfectly. You can listen to everything there is on there.

Iris: You don't mind if I hear what I've paid for?

Jake: Sure, go ahead.

Iris: I mean, you might have missed something. Something that will hang her.

Jake's voice: What are we going to do?

Paulina's voice: Take my cue. I'll keep her occupied and you can make a run for the front door.

Jake's voice: Are you crazy? I'm not going to run for the front door.

Paulina's voice: Oh, my.

Jake's voice: What?

Paulina's voice: Your motorcycle.

Jake's voice: Oh, don't worry about that. I hid that last night so that nobody could see. It's not a problem.

Paulina's voice: Oh, really? You were pretty sure you were going to spend the night, huh?

Jake's voice: Maybe.

Paulina's voice: Don't you worry --

Jake's voice: Don't worry.

Paulina's voice: I'll get you out of this. After last night, I won't let anything happen to you. Be careful.

Jake's voice: Bye.

Iris: My, my. I can see this job was a great hardship for you. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Sharlene: Taylor, hi. I'm glad you're here. I'm sorry to barge up here like this, but something happened. I don't know how to handle it.

[Motor whirring on tape]

Iris: What's that? What's that noise?

Jake: It's the vacuum. The maid's cleaning the room. Something you would know absolutely nothing about.

Iris: There is nothing, absolutely nothing on that tape.

Jake: I told you, Iris. It's going to take time.

Iris: I don't have time, Jake. Don't you understand?

Jake: I understand.

Iris: That little girl is going to worm her way into my family.

Jake: When?

Iris: Maybe even tomorrow. As soon as that and there is nothing I can do about it.

[Clicking on tape]

Iris: What's that? Jake, what's that?

Jake: Somebody's in the room.

Iris: Oh, whoever it is, please say something.

Jake: Shh.

Iris: It's got to be Paulina.

[Phone dialing on tape]

Jake: Be quiet.

Ken's voice: Odyssey.

Paulina's voice: Ken, it's Paulina. I've got to talk to you.

Iris: It's him.
