Olivia: It's a great way to start the day.
Matt: Oh, yeah. I knew if I could get you out here once then that would be --
Olivia: Yeah, what, I'd live in the pool like you?
Matt: Well, basically.
Amanda: Good morning. Mom told me you were out here.
Matt: Morning. You coming in? The water's great.
Amanda: No, actually, I wanted to talk to Olivia.
Olivia: Huh, that's a switch.
Amanda: I understand you were here when Sam called, and you talked to Alli.
Olivia: Yes, I was.
Amanda: Did you talk to him, too?
Amanda: What did he say?
Olivia: I'm afraid I can't tell you that.
Marley: Oh, this fundraiser's going to be wonderful.
Jamie: It's going to be terrific.
Vicky: Hi. Could someone help me with --
Jamie: Yeah, I got -- whoa, whoa, whoa! I got it.
Vicky: Thank you.
Marley: What did you buy?
Vicky: Laptop computer. State of the art.
Jamie: Don't you think Steven's a little young?
Vicky: Very funny. This is for me.
Marley: Really, why?
Vicky: Oh, I've got to upgrade. I mean my -- my typewriter is so primitive, and I've got to be ready when my big break comes.
Jamie: You know how to use this?
Vicky: I can figure it out.
Jamie: Let's take a look.
Vicky: Ok, this will make my life simpler. These are the instructions.
Jamie: Which reminds me. We're going to need some computer equipment for the clinic.
Marley: Oh, I'll get on it and see if we can get it donated.
Vicky: Oh, yeah, it's hot in here. I'll turn up the air conditioning.
Jamie: Good idea.
Vicky: What's this?
Vicky: New tie?
[Jamie's beeper beeps]
Jamie: Yeah, Marley picked it up for me in Nice.
Vicky: Oh, Nice. How nice.
Jamie: Yes, it was a spontaneous purchase. I better call them.
Vicky: What else did you and Jamie do in France spontaneously?
Rachel: Were you reading minds?
Ken: No, why?
Rachel: I was just thinking about you.
Ken: Oh, good. Listen, I've chartered the boat. It's down at the lake. I'm going to go see it. You want to come?
Rachel: Oh, I would love to come.
Ken: But you're busy.
Rachel: I've made up my mind. I'm going to announce my decision about Paulina today.
Matt: Olivia, I thought you promised me you were going to stay out of Sam and Amanda's problems.
Olivia: I am. I just happened to be here when he called.
Amanda: Matt, would you mind if Olivia and I talked privately for a few minutes?
Matt: No, that's fine. I'm going to get something to eat. You guys talk about whatever. I'll be back in a few minutes.
Amanda: Why can't you tell me what you and Sam talked about?
Olivia: Because he asked me not to say anything to anybody, not just you.
Olivia: In fact, your name never even came up.
Amanda: Look, Olivia, try to understand. I haven't heard from Sam since he left. I need to know what's going on.
Olivia: I'm sure he will tell you when he is ready.
Amanda: And when do you think that will be?
Olivia: I couldn't say.
Amanda: I didn't think so.
Olivia: Look, I'm not trying to be mean.
Amanda: If he is planning on filing for a divorce, if he plans to come by and see Alli, I think I should know about it. And if you do know, I don't think it's fair for you to be walking around this house, keeping his secrets.
Olivia: I promised Sam I'd keep my mouth shut, and I will, no matter where I am. I'm sure you have your secrets of your own, Amanda.
Amanda: All right, just drop it. I had hoped he had opened up a little bit by now.
Olivia: If he hasn't, I'm sure he has a good reason.
Amanda: Well, thank you for being honest.
Paulina: La da da da da da da la da da da da da da do do do do do do do do do do do do if you're going to leave take good care hope you got a lot of nice things to wear do do do do do baby, I love you
Iris: This is a complete waste of time. When is she going to stop all that stupid humming and say something incriminating?
Jake: How do I know? Iris, I just put the bug in her room. You need to have a little patience.
Iris: We don't have time for patience, Jake. If something doesn't happen today, it's going to be too late.
Jake: What is the big rush?
Iris: Rachel's had a meeting with the family organized for this morning. I think she has decided to accept Paulina's claim.
Jake: Damn, if I would've known it was going to be that easy, I would've said I was a Cory.
Iris: Jake, this is serious. I can't bear the thought of it. Don't you see that I can't bear it?
Jake: How are you going to stop it, Iris?
Iris: I don't know, I don't know. I'm -- I'm just going to have to try and stall Rachel I guess. Listen, I want you to sit by this machine, and if you hear anything, anything at all, you are to contact me immediately. Do you understand?
Jake: Will do.
Iris: Don't -- please, don't let me down, Jake, ok? I'll be in touch.
Rachel: It's time.
Ken: Have you come up with some more evidence?
Rachel: Oh, I think we have all the evidence we're ever going to come up with.
Ken: Well, I understand how you feel, but it would be nice to have something definitive.
Rachel: Yes, it would, but I keep waiting and nothing changes.
Ken: I know it's been hard on you having this thing hanging over your head for so long.
Rachel: We just need some peace around here. I hope there are no more surprises.
Ken: So, have you told the family?
Rachel: I'm going to today.
Ken: All right. Well, I'll let you get to it.
Rachel: I just -- I wanted to thank you for all the help you've given me over this. I know it wasn't easy to dredge up the past.
Ken: Rachel, as a matter of fact, I think it did me some good to have to face it.
Rachel: If it wasn't for me monopolizing your time, you'd be out there excavating your treasure by now.
Ken: That ship has been there for over a 100 years. There was no rush. Besides, it was my choice. I wanted to spend time with you.
Rachel: You must think of me as being very single-minded.
Ken: I think of you as someone who is very determined to get to the bottom of things and that I respect.
Rachel: This has affected our friendship though. But you're right, I did have to settle it.
Ken: And now you have.
Rachel: I hope.
Ken: Well, maybe this means we could make a fresh start.
Rachel: I would like that very much.
Ken: Me, too.
John: Sharlene? Sharlene? Sharlene?
Michael: Hey, going to make me something to eat?
John: Sure, Mike. Here, have a corn muffin.
Michael: Ah, well, thanks, but actually I just ate at Mom's. I was over there for a little while.
John: Yeah, good. Listen, I haven't been over there for a while. How's she doing?
Michael: Oh, she's doing fine. Doing fine.
John: Did you bug her about taking her blood pressure medicine?
Michael: Ah, no, she said that you had done enough of that already.
John: Yeah, but I think it's important --
Michael: John, John, calm down, man. She's fine.
John: Good, good.
Michael: I called the hospital. They said you'd signed out. So I figured I'd take a chance, see if you were here.
John: Well, here I am.
Michael: Where's Sharlene?
John: Good question.
Michael: Uh-huh. You two have something planned?
John: Oh, just another shot at spontaneity. Sharlene seems to have beaten me to the punch. She did leave a note though. She's gone out.
Michael: Well, what's the problem?
John: It's the kind of a note that Sharly used to leave -- vague. I would come home, the place would be empty. I mean, it's just like déja vu.
Michael: Wow. Does that worry you?
John: Well, I'm not really worried about her, it's just --
John: Man, I hate this. She's keeping things from me again. I know it.
Michael: Have you talked to her about it? Can you talk about it?
John: Well, we had talked on and off, but it's not like it was when we were first together. She -- she just does things and then tells me about it afterwards.
Michael: Oh, I know what that's like, man.
John: You know, this has just been going on too long though. Hey. You want a cup of coffee?
Michael: Uh --
John: Here are the cups.
Michael: Yeah, ok, great. Is Sharlene still going to therapy?
John: Yeah, every day she is confronting things from her childhood and trying to understand what's been happening with Sharly these past few months.
Michael: She's remembering?
John: She sure is. Which means I'm finding out more and more about what actually went on with Sharly. Believe me, it's --it's not easy. Hasn't been easy for either of us.
Michael: Oh, boy.
John: To make things even more complicated, Grant Harrison's still hanging around.
Michael: Yeah, but she's not -- she's seeing Grant?
John: Sharlene's doctor seems to think that it's a good idea for her to keep in touch with people she knew when she was Sharly.
Michael: Oh, man. Man I -- I -- you know, I don't know what I'd do in this situation. I couldn't take it.
John: It's been no picnic, believe me.
Michael: I'll bet.
John: Anyway, we had this argument last night, a small one. But I thought that I would come home early, make a nice brunch, take her to a movie, smooth things --
Michael: And she is not here, right?
John: Not only is she not here, I don't have any idea when she is going to come home.
Sharlene: Grant? He's not here.
Taylor: Did you expect him to be?
Sharlene: I don't know. I just wanted to make sure.
Taylor: Are you nervous?
Sharlene: I'm not sure what I'm going to find.
Taylor: You tell John about us coming over here today?
Sharlene: No, because when I left, he was at the hospital.
Taylor: You could've called him.
Sharlene: Yeah, I suppose I could have.
Taylor: What about the key? Does he know that Grant gave it to you?
Sharlene: No, not yet he doesn't.
Sharlene: Because he'd be furious, that's why.
Taylor: So, what would happen if he got furious?
Sharlene: I can't stand it, that's all.
Taylor: So you would rather not have him get angry and -- and hide all of this from him.
Sharlene: I don't know. Maybe. I don't -- I haven't decided.
Taylor: So, any of this feel familiar?
Sharlene: Oh, familiar. It feels comfortable.
Taylor: You think that's the way Grant wanted you to feel?
Taylor: Why do you think he gave you the key?
Sharlene: Because he trusts me.
Taylor: Sharlene, doesn't it strike you as just a little unusual that Grant knows about your being here and John doesn't?
Sharlene: Maybe you should ask yourself that question.
Taylor: I don't understand.
Sharlene: I -- well, how does it strike you? Maybe you don't mind that I haven't completely broken things off with Grant.
Marley: Ok, here are the -- here is the list of things we already have donated for the raffle. I think we should put the TV and VCR in as first prize. What do you think?
Jamie: Well, this is terrific. How did you get three CD players?
Marley: Oh, well, I asked for them, and I told them they would be third prize.
Jamie: Good thinking. That's great.
Marley: It also didn't -- I think our non-profit status had something to do with it.
Jamie: I'd be more likely to --.
Vicky: Oh, really, don't trouble yourselves. I'll get it.
Vicky: Jake, what are you doing here?
Jake: Marley, what else?
Vicky: Oh, ha ha. Well, please come in. She's right in there.
Jake: Hey, Marley, what -- can you come outside for a second? There is something I wanted to show you -- Jamie.
Jamie: Hello, Jake.
Marley: What are you so excited about?
Jake: I got a new car.
Vicky: You did? With what?
Jake: You want to go for a spin?
Marley: Um, could we just do it maybe a little later? Jamie and I are kind of working here.
Jake: Sure, I -- I should've called first.
Vicky: Oh, Jake, stick around. You can help me with my software.
Jake: No, thank you.
Marley: Suppose I just take a quick look.
Jake: It's right out front.
Marley: I'll just be a minute. Well, when did you get it?
Jake: I got it this morning, and I got the top off.
Vicky: Well, this doesn't make much sense.
Jamie: What are you mumbling about?
Vicky: Jake -- I mean, just a few weeks ago, he was up to his adorable chin in debt, and now he is all champagne dreams and caviar.
Jamie: So, maybe things have gotten better for him.
Vicky: In a few weeks that much better?
Jamie: Could happen.
Vicky: You know something. Come on, Jamie, spit it out.
Jamie: You never stop, do you?
Vicky: What do you mean?
Jamie: You can't mind your own business.
Vicky: Oh, hey, I've known Jake for a long time. I admit I'm a little bit curious when he shows up with money out of the blue for limos and a brand new car.
Jamie: Then ask him where he got it, ok?
Vicky: He won't tell me. That's why I'm asking you.
Jamie: Vicky, I have no idea, and who cares? What Jake does is his affair.
Vicky: Maybe Marley's.
Jamie: If she chooses it to be.
Vicky: Well, I choose to be worried about my sister, how's that?
Jamie: Please, let's not have another fight about Marley --
Vicky: Jake is trying to snow her. I just wanted to -- to --
Jamie: To what? Interfere?
Vicky: To -- to point it out to her.
Jamie: Marley has eyes.
Vicky: Yeah, well, she's been blind to Jake in the past.
Jamie: Look, don't you have anything better to do than to stick your nose in other people's business?
Marley: Oh, Jake, that was a wonderful car. It's beautiful.
Jake: Yeah, and you should hear the stereo. I mean, that -- that car definitely has a hot stereo.
Marley: Oh, well, I would like to hear it. But I -- I really can't keep Jamie waiting.
Jamie: Marley, I'm going to have to cut this short. I didn't realize what time it was. Mom -- wants everyone to be at the house this morning. She has something she has to say.
Marley: Oh, about Paulina maybe?
Jamie: I think so. I left the rest of the paperwork on the table.
Marley: Ok, all right. Just give me a call when you're through.
Jamie: I will. Jake.
Jake: Well, now that Jamie's not cracking the whip, maybe I can twist your arm and take a little ride.
Marley: Oh, Jake, really, I would love to, but I've got a deadline that I've got to work against. And I've got tons of people that are --
Jake: You sure that's it?
Marley: What? Of course I'm sure.
Jake: I mean, I was thinking maybe it was last night and you were upset with the way things turned out.
Marley: Oh, no, I'm glad we didn't push ourselves.
Jake: All right, I want things to be right this time.
Marley: Me, too. And I don't want us to interfere with your work at Visions.
Jake: I -- I -- I -- think that's the other way around. I think I've been so caught up in -- in -- in these projects that I haven't been really fair to you. I've been canceling dates and --
Marley: No, I don't -- I don't mind that.
Jake: Even if you did, that's going to change.
Marley: It is?
Jake: Mm-hmm. As soon as I'm finished with this gig for Iris, you and I are going to jump in that little convertible, we're going to drive up north, and find a romantic little motel.
Marley: ... some log cabins.
Jake: Uh-huh, lakes and surrounded by trees.
Jake: Nobody for miles and miles and miles.
Marley: That sounds wonderful.
Jake: Just the two of us are going to get away.
Marley: I can't wait.
Jake: Let's talk about this real soon, all right? You have the softest lips.
Marley: Get out of here.
Jake: I'm gone.
Olivia: Oh, I'm exhausted. I shouldn't have gone for that last lap.
Matt: Ah, but it's good for you. It builds stamina.
Olivia: Works out frustration, too.
Matt: Oh, yeah. That, too.
Olivia: Hmm. Thanks a lot for not making a big deal out of my taking Sam's call.
Matt: Well, it doesn't mean I want you to hang out with the guy.
Olivia: I know, I know.
Matt: I mean Sam's my brother- in-law, and we got along great. But, you know, it doesn't make me happy to have to warn you about him.
Olivia: Just what do you think he would do to me?
Matt: I don't know. Could turn on you, too.
Olivia: That's crazy.
Matt: Maybe it is. But I know that the guy is not right, is -- he's off his rocker.
Matt: No, I'm serious. Evan was at the bottom of the elevator shaft. There was a gun. He was threatening a man --
Olivia: Look, for the last time, Sam never meant to hurt Evan or Amanda.
Matt: Ok, ok. What about now? He's like a fugitive. He's still married to Amanda.
Olivia: He's been very good to me, Matthew.
Matt: Listen, I know he's helped you out through some rough times.
Olivia: Look, Matthew, you're the only other person who's ever been around for me. I wouldn't turn my back on you either.
Matt: Ok, ok, ok, ok. Just don't carry a torch for the guy, ok?
Olivia: I'm not. Anyway, it's not like I'm turning down dates from gorgeous men.
Matt: Well, maybe you could be if you got out.
Olivia: Oh, sure, how? I'm not exactly the singles' bar type. I don't have any girlfriends except Josie, and all her friends make me ill.
Matt: Well, what about me?
Matt: What do you mean what? I mean, we don't just have to hang out at the pool. We could go out at night. You know, dancing, have some fun.
Matt: Yeah, fun. You remember that, don't you?
Olivia: I have a dim recollection. I think that's when you laugh and have something called "a good time."
Matt: That's it. How about it?
Olivia: You and me.
Matt: If you'd like.
Olivia: I would. Very much.
Iris: Rachel, I know you're anxious to get this over with as soon as possible, but couldn't you please slow it down a bit?
Rachel: We've taken it as far as we can, Iris. I see no point waiting any longer.
Iris: I told you. I think she's taking an advantage of you, making herself the center of Daddy's dying last wishes.
Rachel: She didn't do that.
Iris: I'm not convinced of that.
Rachel: Well, then keep your opinions to yourself.
Iris: That means you're about to recognize her as his daughter, doesn't it?
Rachel: Yes, it does, unless some family member can give me one valid objection.
Iris: Well, I object very strongly.
Rachel: Something that's based on solid fact, Iris.
Iris: Look, I just can't accept that Daddy would want this. Giving some stranger his last name and accepting her into the family with that flimsy little bit of evidence.
Rachel: I don't think he would want to deny this child the love that she's been denied all her life.
Iris: Oh, I had no idea you were so sentimental. Do me a favor. Don't invest in any gold mines.
Paulina: Excuse me.
Paulina: Sorry to interrupt. Rachel, did you want to see me?
Rachel: Yes, Paulina. Would you sit down?
Iris: Make yourself at home. I'll be in the library if you need me, praying that you come to your senses.
Rachel: Ignore Iris.
Paulina: It's not easy.
Rachel: It takes some practice. Well, I'm going to be meeting with the family in a few minutes. And after that, I would like you to join us.
Paulina: Can you tell me why?
Rachel: I think you know why. I've taken Mac's last request very seriously. I've wanted to be fair to you and to his other children.
Paulina: His other children.
Paulina: Rachel, I -- I -- I know how much you have been through on my account. And I just wanted to tell you that it was never my intention.
Rachel: Well, now that I know you a little better, I believe you.
Paulina: Thank you.
Rachel: I've looked into what you've told us. I've watched you risk an awful lot to hang on to what you believe to be the truth. Your belief has convinced me, Paulina.
Paulina: I'm glad.
Rachel: But before we go any further, I have one more question I have to ask you, and I want you to be very honest.
Paulina: Sure, ask me anything. Anything at all.
Rachel: In your claim to be Mac's daughter, is there anything that you haven't told me about? Anything at all that I should know? If there is, I would like you to tell me.
John: Thanks a lot for coming by, Mike. You've really helped me blow off a little steam.
Michael: It's my pleasure. You mind if I offer you a little unsolicited advice?
John: It's always welcomed.
Michael: Go easy on yourself. And go easy on Sharly. No two people, no matter how well they know each other, even a husband and wife, talk about everything.
John: Is that the way it is with you and Donna?
Michael: Well, for now, yeah. I got to tell you, I -- I can't understand why she changed her mind and gave Mikey back to the Millers. I just can't.
John: It sure didn't make any sense to me.
Michael: Well, there's a lot that happened during that custody hearing that doesn't make sense.
John: What does Donna say about it?
Michael: It's such an emotional issue, I can never get to the bottom of it. And we start to talk and then she starts talking about how she should've raised Victoria and -- and the press. She gets upset, she cries, I get frustrated. And to tell you the truth, I've come to a point where I just accept the -- the fact that that's the way it's going to be.
John: Well, what are you going to do, Mike? You can't just drop it and -- and -- just accept the doubt. Is that what you're --
Michael: Well, no, not -- not forever. But I'll -- I'll find out what the truth is eventually. Even Donna can't keep a secret forever. What I'm -- what I'm trying to get through right now is just -- I'm trying to get used to not having Mikey in my life anymore.
John: I don't know how you can do it. I mean, he was your son.
Michael: And he's gone. And I loved him. And it's killing me.
John: I'm sorry.
Michael: So am I. Hey, look, brother, you hang in there, all right? I know that everything is going to work out with you and Sharlene. I just know it.
John: Yeah, see, the thing is it's just not me and Sharlene. There's another man right in the middle. And I have to deal with the fact that my wife had an affair. I'm not doing real well with that one, especially since she is still seeing him.
Sharlene: Well, I guess that's about it. Maybe we should go.
Taylor: You sure? You -- you seem a little reluctant.
Sharlene: Oh, do I?
Taylor: Sharlene, if you're expecting Grant to walk through that door, don't. I spoke to one of his aides this morning, and he is in D.C.
Sharlene: Well, he didn't tell me he was going away.
Taylor: For a few days. Look, maybe before we leave, we should talk about any memories that you had here.
Sharlene: Well, there really hasn't been anything specific.
Sharlene: No, because I haven't been able to concentrate.
Taylor: Why is that?
Sharlene: Because you won't -- you won't answer my questions about you and John.
Taylor: Sharlene, there's nothing to say.
Sharlene: I doubt that.
Taylor: Look, my relationship with John is through you. Now, I thought we settled this yesterday.
Sharlene: I don't know -- well, I know, but --
Taylor: Sharlene, it would be a breach of every ethic I have to become involved with the husband of one of my patients.
Sharlene: I suppose so.
Taylor: If you don't believe that, you have to talk about finding another therapist.
Sharlene: No, I don't want to do that.
Taylor: Look, I don't want to do it either. We've come such a long way, and I know that I can still help you. But all of this pointless speculation is getting us nowhere. Look, I've really given this a lot of thought, and maybe it would be healthiest for all of us if I try to find someone else for John to talk to.
Sharlene: I think that might be best.
Taylor: Well, think about this. Sometimes it's easier to think the trouble in your marriage is coming from someone on the outside. Sharlene, John thinks it's Grant.
Taylor: What do you think?
Sharlene: Oh, Taylor. I don't know.
Taylor: Sharlene, you've got to be really honest with yourself and with John. I want you to tell him about this visit here.
Sharlene: Or you will, is that it?
Taylor: No, that's not it. Sharlene, keeping this a secret is going to make Grant an even bigger obstacle in your relationship with John. And that will not be my doing. It will be all yours.
Rachel: Is there something else I should know?
Paulina: I wish there was something more, but -- something would convince everyone that I really am Mac's daughter.
Rachel: I hope you're telling me everything.
Paulina: I am.
Rachel: All right, go upstairs and wait in your room, and we will call you when we're ready for you.
Paulina: Rachel, I appreciate everything you've done for me so much.
Rachel: I expect you feel as though you've been living under a microscope.
Paulina: No, actually, this has been the best time in my life.
Amanda: Mom, Hilda said you wanted to see me.
Rachel: Yes. What are your instincts about Paulina?
Amanda: Well, I was furious with her at first.
Rachel: And now?
Amanda: I never thought I'd be saying this. I think I understand her.
Rachel: She doesn't make you uncomfortable?
Amanda: The situation makes me uncomfortable. She doesn't.
Rachel: And what about all the lying she told to get the job here?
Amanda: Well, I'm not thrilled about that. But I'm trying not to judge other people so harshly as of late.
Rachel: So you don't think she's still lying?
Amanda: I think she is very defensive. But you know, after I heard of how she spent her childhood -- I don't know, maybe if I had grown up that way, I'd be doing the same thing.
Rachel: Well, I'm going to talk to your brothers. But I think I am going to accept her as a part of the family.
Amanda: That means I'll have to accept her as my sister.
Rachel: Can you do that?
Amanda: Mom, if you believe that she is Daddy's daughter, then so do I.
Paulina: Ken, it's me. I had to call you. It's happening. It's really happening.
Ken: What is?
Paulina: I just came from speaking with Rachel. She is having this big family pow-wow today, and I just know it's about me.
Ken: What did she say to you?
Paulina: Well, nothing yet. She told me to wait in my room while she spoke with everybody else, but I just know it's good news, Ken.
Ken: Well, that's terrific, Paulina, but I really think we should talk about this later.
Paulina: Oh, no, no, don't hang up. There's something I have to say to you.
Vicky: Marley I am so thrilled with how dedicated you are to working on this project with Jamie.
Vicky: Maybe if I can get my little computer working I can help you guys out, too. Let's see. "Begin by booting distribution disc number one." Booting. Why don't they speak English? Where do -- ok. Booting done. All right, "place in 'a' drive." "A" drive. "Press the control and alt keys and release at the same time."
Vicky: Oh, it worked.
Marley: Did you say something?
Vicky: Oh, I -- I booted something.
Marley: Oh, congratulations.
Vicky: You've been in a daze ever since Jake was here.
Marley: Have I?
Vicky: Still don't get how you do it. I mean, I can't keep one guy interested in me, and you've got Jake and Jamie eating out of your hand.
Marley: Vicky, don't be ridiculous. I don't have anybody eating out of my hand.
Marley: Oh, no, they just come over here making goo-goo eyes at you, and then they shoot hate looks at each other. You know, if it keeps up, I'm going to have to buy myself a black and white striped shirt and a whistle.
Marley: You know, I have told you before that Jamie and I have to get the approval and the money for the clinic by fall.
Vicky: Oh, yeah, yeah. Two dedicated, selfless souls helping the downtrodden.
Marley: Are you going to start this again?
Vicky: I know Jamie. This is more than his love of humanity.
Marley: Do you have to ridicule everything you don't understand?
Vicky: I do understand, Marley. Jamie's got a huge crush on you, and you just can't see it. Or you just pretend that it's not there. Which one is it?
Marl: It's neither. Vicky, I know you don't have much confidence in me, but I do a very good job at what I do and Jamie appreciates that.
Vicky: Oh, honey, that's not all he appreciates. Just speaking from experience.
Marley: You still think that the only reason Jamie could like me is because I remind him of you.
Marley: Well, what if he just likes me for me?
Vicky: Oh, yeah, right. The -- the good sister.
Marley: Are you interested in setting up a clinic by the waterfront?
Vicky: No, of course not, but neither was Jamie until you came into town. Oh, please forgive me if I'm a little confused. I thought the reason you came in here in the first place was to get back together with Jake.
Marley: I am. But Jake cannot be my entire life. That's what made things go bad before.
Vicky: How did it go last night?
Vicky: Why didn't you spend the night with him?
Marley: Because we are taking things slowly.
Vicky: It's not exactly Jake's style.
Marley: It's been almost a year, Vicky. We were both more scared than we thought we would be. We cannot just pick up where we left off. We have both changed.
Vicky: Just how much has -- has Jake changed?
Marley: A lot. Here.
Vicky: You know what? You're the one who changed. And you know when you did it? You did it in France when you were spending all that time alone with Jamie.
Marley: Stop it. Stop trying to make something out of that trip that it wasn't. I have told you over and over again that nothing has happened. Now, I'm sorry if you can't handle that, but I will not be tortured by this, Vicky. I don't want to talk about France with you ever again. I will never talk to you about France ever again. Have you got it?
Rachel: The only thing that the handwriting expert was able to come up with was that Paulina did not write the letter.
Jamie: Maybe she got someone to do it for her.
Iris: Yeah, perhaps she is in cahoots with someone.
Rachel: We have not been able to disprove anything she's told us.
Iris: So far.
Rachel: That's right. But it's time we came to a conclusion, Iris.
Matt: You've concluded that she is Mac's daughter?
Rachel: I have concluded that she believes she is, and I think we should accept that. Do you two have any problems with that?
Jamie: I have a problem with the fact that she came into this house under false pretences.
Rachel: She explained why she lied to us.
Jamie: Now, I know she had her reasons, but I still can't get by the fact that she wasn't honest. It bothers me.
Matt: I kind of agree with Jamie. I mean, how can we really trust her?
Iris: When she first dropped this bomb, we thought she was looking for money. Now because she's looking for love, we believe her.
Amanda: I do.
Matt: Ok, wait a minute. Mom has done everything that Mac would've wanted her to do.
Rachel: Thank you, Matthew.
Matt: I mean, you've been more than fair. You've investigated and come to a decision. Now that decision is good enough for me.
Jamie: For me, too, Mom. If you think Paulina should be a part of this family, I'm with you.
Amanda: Me, too.
Rachel: All right, well, that's going to take some getting used to. Matthew, you go up and get Paulina. She's waited long enough.
Jake: Looks like Paulina's been chatting.
Jake: A lot.
Ken's voice: Odyssey.
Paulina's voice: Ken, it's me. I had to call you. It's happening. It's really happening.
Vicky: Yes, Jamie. I think the clinic would be lovely.
Sharlene: Well, hi. Surprised to see you home.
John: I've been home for a while. Maybe you can tell me where you've been.
Sharlene: I was with Taylor Benson. At Grant's suite.
John: You saw him?
Sharlene: No, he wasn't there.
John: I don't understand, Sharlene. I just don't understand.
Sharlene: John, we went there to look around to see if I would remember anything else. That's -- and we used this to get in.
John: Where did you get that?
Sharlene: Grant gave it to me yesterday. Down at the Old mill.
John: Oh, I see. You saw Grant yesterday, and you didn't say anything to me?
Sharlene: John, it's not always easy to say things to you.
John: Sharlene, what am I? Am I the villain in this piece?
Sharlene: Please, John, don't get mad.
John: Look, I am sorry! I am not your doctor. I cannot be neutral in everything that you do. I'm your husband! I think I have a right to know if you're seeing him!
Sharlene: I'm not seeing him!
John: So why all the secrecy, Sharlene? There is no need for it, and you don't have Sharly to blame.
John: Hello. Yes, yes, this is Dr. Hudson. They are? Ok. Yeah, we'll be there. Thank you.
Sharlene: What is it?
John: That was the lab at the hospital. The test results from the C.V.S. are in. They can identify the father.
Matt: All right, everyone's here.
Paulina: So I see.
Rachel: Come in and sit down, Paulina.
Rachel: Well, you came into this house and into our lives, and nothing's been the same since. Lately I've begun to think of it as fate, though. There was a lot this family had to face about ourselves and about Mac at a time when we were missing him very much. At a time when we wanted to turn to him for guidance, but he wasn't there. So we had to look to ourselves. We never thought of Mac as giving us problems. We thought of him as solving them. And that's what I thought you were, another problem. Until I started investigating your claim and then I realized that there was something very important we all had to learn. No matter how much I loved Mac, no matter how much I thought I knew him, I realized that I could never know everything there was to know about him. But that didn't affect the happiness we had together. We might not always know all the details of his life, but what we did know was more important. He was compassionate, he loved us, and he was generous. Those are the important things. That's what I have been thinking about in trying to make this decision. We can't ever know all there is to know about somebody else. But that's no reason to stop from giving them the love we can give them. Love Paulina's been waiting for all her life. Mac trusted me. Now we'll trust you. You believe you're Mac's daughter. We accept that. We're your family now.
Paulina: Thank you.
Paulina's voice: I am so grateful for everything you've done. If you hadn't found me, I would've spent my entire life wondering who my parents were, wondering who I really was.
Ken's voice: Well, it sounds like you won't have to worry about that anymore.
Paulina's voice: No, and I owe that all to you.
Ken's voice: Oh, forget it. I'm happy for you.
Paulina's voice: When I first read Maria's letter, you know, I didn't know where to begin. If you hadn't helped me set up a way to get into the Cory house, I'd still be on the outside looking in.
Ken's voice: It was the least I could do.
Paulina's voice: I just wish I could have told Rachel that you were the one who brought me to the Corys, that I had you to thank for all this.
Ken's voice: You didn't say anything about me, did you?
Paulina's voice: I was tempted to, but I didn't. Rachel asked me if there was anything I had left out.
Paulina's voice: I did.
Ken's voice: Good.
Paulina's voice: I hated lying, Ken. And I still don't agree with you. I mean, if she knew that you were really responsible for my finding my family, I'm -- I'm sure she would look at things differently. There'd be questions, but --
Ken's voice: Yes, and any doubt cast on me would reflect on you. Just remember that in case you get an urge to clear your conscience.
Paulina's voice: I promised I'd never mention this to anyone, and I won't. And there's another part of our deal I want to keep, too. When I get my share of my father's estate, I'm going to give you half.
Ken's voice: Paulina, I told you. I don't want it.
Paulina's voice: No arguments, Ken. After all you have done, you deserve it. I know you can use it. Hold on, I hear something.
Ken's voice: No, but you don't understand.
Paulina's voice: I have to go. The next time you see me I'll be Paulina Cory.
