Sharlene: Iris.

Iris: There's nothing like the smell of a farm, is there? It's reassuring.

Sharlene: What can I do for you?

Iris: Hmm, I thought we might chat.

Sharlene: I don't think so.

Iris: I'd like to, if you could spare a few minutes. It's so refreshing, isn't it, being out of the city?

Sharlene: Do we really need the small talk?

Iris: No, I don't suppose so.

Sharlene: Good. I'm listening.

Iris: Sharlene, I know we've never been close.

Sharlene: No, I wouldn't say that.

Iris: Well, that's why this is, it's -- it's difficult for me.

Sharlene: Please, get to the point.

Iris: I need a favor.

Sharlene: Ok.

Iris: I want you to speak to Grant Harrison for me.

Sharlene: What?

Iris: I've heard that you have a special relationship.

Sharlene: Get out.

Iris: Please.

Sharlene: Get out.

Iris: Please hear me out.

Sharlene: If you're not off my farm in 30 seconds, I will call the police.

Rachel: You here to see Steven?

Vicky: No, I already saw him.

Rachel: Well, then it's time for you to leave, isn't it?

Vicky: No, I came to see you. I want you to tell me what's going on.

Rachel: Well, an awful lot is going on, Vicky. I wouldn't know where to begin.

Vicky: Why don't you begin with Steven's baby-sitter? Why is she all of a sudden his aunt? Have you lost your mind?

Ken: So, Jake isn't here?

Paulina: Not right now.

Ken: Will he be back any time soon?

Paulina: Nope. You want to sit down?

Ken: I think I'll stand, thanks.

Paulina: Coffee, doughnut?

Ken: Why did you ask me over, Paulina?

Paulina: Jake and I -- we -- we've become a lot closer recently.

Ken: Yes.

Paulina: You and I, we've been in this thing together a long time.

Ken: From the get-go.

Paulina: I don't want any more surprises.

Ken: I don't follow.

Paulina: Well, here it is in a nutshell. Jake McKinnon is in my life. And I don't want anything bad to happen to ruin that.

Marley: Ok, sorry. Eight feet, two inches. Eight feet, two inches, lights -- I'll put lights at the end of the pier --

Jake: Or you could go to Straw Bridge lighting and have the whole thing lit, you know?

Marley: How did you know I was here?

Jake: Reuben. He was at Stacey's office.

Marley: Reuben should mind his own business.

Jake: Why are you avoiding me?

Marley: Who was the one who left whom at the gallery? Who was the one that planned the entire evening and then left me?

Jake: It was an emergency.

Marley: An emergency with Paulina Cantrell? What are you hiding, Jake?

Jake: I'm not hiding anything from you.

Marley: Don't insult my intelligence.

Jake: All right, so it wasn't as big an emergency as Paulina originally thought it was.

Marley: Excuse me.

Jake: It was a work thing, Marley. It was just a work thing, that's it.

Marley: I'm not an idiot, Jake. Although you obviously think that I am.

Jake: Marley, please, I never said --

Marley: Do you think I don't notice that when Paulina snaps her fingers, you disappear? You are nervous, defensive. You don't --

Jake: It's Iris -- it's this job with Iris. Paulina understands how important it is.

Marley: What about all that garbage you fed me about how money isn't important unless you're spending time with the person that you love?

Jake: That's true. This job with Iris is going to be over real soon.

Marley: Then what about the next job? Is the next job going to be the one that solves all your problems, Jake?

Jake: If you just give me a chance, I will show you how much I love you.

Marley: I have to go.

Jake: You know you care about me, otherwise you wouldn't be acting like this.

Marley: Do you know I have a really busy schedule today? I have so much to do, Jake.

Jake: Do you know how much you mean to me?

Marley: I've got to go.

Jake: Marley, I'll make yesterday up to you, I promise.

Jake: As soon as I see Iris.

Paulina: I just don't want to feel bad about something that makes me feel so good.

Ken: You're a Cory now, Paulina.

Paulina: Yeah, what has that got to do with Jake?

Ken: Hanging out with him at Sassy's is hardly going to endear you to the family.

Paulina: Now wait a second, the only reason Rachel saw me there was because she was there with you.

Ken: Rachel was slumming. Places like Sassy's were a way of life for you.

Paulina: Oh, I see. So what do you expect from me? You want me to change overnight, be like her?

Ken: No. But an affair with Jake is only going to hold you back.

Paulina: He -- he -- he's not like that. You don't know what you're talking about.

Ken: Well, who cares what I think? It's what the family thinks that counts and that they accept you as one of them.

Paulina: They will.

Ken: Not if you keep seeing Jake.

Paulina: You're a real snob, you know that?

Ken: I'm a realist who wants to help you.

Paulina: So what do you expect from me? You -- you want me to quit my job, dump Jake, and just concentrate on being a Cory?

Ken: It will be good for a start.

Paulina: Forget it.

Ken: You're going to blow it if you are not careful, Paulina.

Paulina: Jake is so charming. I mean he could make Rachel like him.

Ken: You don't know Rachel.

Paulina: I know she's dating you. I'm sorry, you're not exactly blue blood yourself, you know, Ken.

Ken: If you're trying to find similarities between me and Jake, don't waste your time. We are nothing alike.

Paulina: I wonder.

Ken: Jake is an opportunist. If there's a buck to be grabbed, he'll grab it. And when it comes to you, there's going to be a lot of bucks.

Paulina: Oh, oh, I see. Now you think that Jake is after me because of my money?

Ken: You can laugh now. But you keep an eye on him.

Paulina: If all he was interested in was money, he'd be still with Marley.

Ken: Maybe Marley told him to get lost.

Paulina: No, it was his choice.

Ken: I'm not going to argue with you. I just want you to get it through your head that nothing in your life up to now has prepared you for the changes you are going to have to go through in the next few months. So you be smart. See, it's not me you have to worry about. It's you. You be careful, because if you're not, you could lose everything.

Iris: I'm not leaving, Sharlene.

Sharlene: And I am not bluffing.

Iris: This is absolutely vital to me.

Sharlene: Iris, your manicure is vital to you.

Iris: It's Lucas.

Sharlene: What about him?

Iris: Well, I -- I'm worried about him. I think he is hurt or something.

Sharlene: No, Iris, that man has more lives than anyone I have ever known.

Iris: Well, I don't think so. Not this time. I think he's taken on the wrong people.

Sharlene: Who?

Iris: The underground. The cartel he used to be connected with...

Sharlene: Iris, if he is still working with those people --

Iris: No, he's not. Please, it's not that. Look, I know there is no love lost between you two, but you must remember that he has been very good to Josie. He always has been.

Sharlene: Oh, ok, all right. So he's been good to Josie. What?

Iris: Yes. So could you please help him?

Sharlene: I still don't know what you're talking about.

Iris: Sharlene, Lucas is trying to get evidence against the cartel. He thinks if he does that, in exchange the congressional committee might drop the charges against him.

Sharlene: Oh, wait a minute.

Iris: And Grant Harrison is a congressman and he's still in town.

Sharlene: I can't do it, Iris. I can't.

Iris: Please, do you think if I had any other options I wouldn't -- I wouldn't use them?

Sharlene: Do you really think that I have that kind of influence?

Iris: I -- yes -- yes, I do.

Sharlene: I'm not seeing Grant anymore.

Iris: Just one word from you, just one word and he'd ---- he'd pick up the phone. He'd call Washington or the FBI or whoever it is. At least they'd try and find him.

Sharlene: I don't think he would do it for me. I --

Iris: Sharlene, every morning at exactly the same time every single day, Lucas is ringing me just to reassure me, you know, that everything's all right. Well, he didn't ring me yesterday morning and he didn't ring me this morning.

Sharlene: Iris, you are asking so much.

Iris: I know. But I'm frightened. I think something's happened to him.

Sharlene: I gave my word to John that I would not see Grant.

Iris: Please -- just, just one more --

Sharlene: You're asking me to break my promise.

Iris: I know. I know and I'm sorry. But you could be saving his life, and I would appreciate it so much if you'll just please, please do this.

Rachel: I thought Paulina was a friend of yours.

Vicky: That was before she went south and moved back here.

Rachel: And you don't agree with her?

Vicky: She doesn't belong in this family.

Rachel: What's it to you, Vicky?

Vicky: My son lives here half the time.

Rachel: She has a wonderful relationship with your son.

Vicky: And now all of a sudden she's his aunt? How's that going to make sense to him?

Rachel: Well, maybe it doesn't need to at this age.

Vicky: You have no idea what my son needs.

Rachel: What's the problem, Vicky, you jealous?

Vicky: Jealous? No. But I do wonder how you can accept a total stranger into your home when I was never good enough.

Rachel: Oh, I think that was all in your head.

Vicky: No, Rachel, as hard as I tried, you made it very clear that I never belonged in the Cory family.

Rachel: No, I think you did that all yourself.

Vicky: She is manipulating this whole thing.

Rachel: She's a member of this family.

Vicky: And even if that were 100% provable, it doesn't make her a saint.

Rachel: No, it doesn't make her a saint.

Vicky: Well, I never figured you'd be such a fool.

Rachel: Why do you think you have a right to judge what I do, Vicky?

Vicky: My son lives here. That gives me a right. And I don't want him spending half of his life in an unstable home.

Rachel: Oh, I think it's about as stable as your home.

Vicky: I wouldn't accept anybody who claims to be my relative into my house.

Rachel: Well, I think that's enough.

Vicky: What about Steven's inheritance? Is he going to have to share that with his new auntie?

Rachel: I told you Paulina is part of this family now.

Vicky: Boy, you really have lost your mind.

Rachel: Why don't you get a life, Vicky? Maybe that way you'll stop interfering in other people's.

Vicky: Oh, I don't interfere. I merely point it out when people have gone insane.

Rachel: How would we manage without your shrewd observations?

Vicky: Beats the hell out of me. But as long as Steven is a member of this family, you won't have to worry about that.

Hilda: I'll see that Jamie gets this, Marley.

Marley: Great, and I think he left a package for me, as well.

Hilda: That's right. I'll get it for you right now.

Marley: Great. Hilda, did Jamie call and say when he was going to be back?

Hilda: No, not that I know of.

Marley: Oh, ok.

Vicky: Jeepers, it's my lucky day.

Marley: What are you doing here?

Vicky: My son lives here, remember? What about you?

Marley: I dropped off a package for Jamie, and Hilda said he left something for me. I'll just wait in the other room.

Vicky: No, Marley, wait.

Marley: I have nothing to say to you, Vicky.

Vicky: You can't just stay furious at me forever.

Marley: Watch me.

Vicky: Jamie didn't call you, did he?

Marley: What does that have to do with anything?

Vicky: Oh, I don't know. I just thought that --

Marley: I don't care what you thought. I don't want to have this conversation with you, especially not in this house.

Vicky: Oh, what are you afraid the servants are going to start whispering about what you and Jamie are doing?

Marley: What goes on between Jamie and me is none of your business.

Vicky: He is my son's father and he was my husband, Marley.

Marley: Was.

Vicky: So I am just supposed to forget about it like you forgot about Jake when you and he were separated? I mean, you really handled Jake and I sleeping together really well. You just -- you zenned out and handled that real well, yeah.

Marley: I can't handle anything you do, Vicky.

Vicky: As understanding as ever.

Marley: I understand that you were spiteful and destructive. And I suggest you find your own man, any man, and just leave the rest of us alone.

Ryan: The CDC?

Grant: Center for Disease Control.

Ryan: I know what it is, and I know where it is.

Grant: What's wrong with that?

Ryan: You're sending John Hudson down south on the pretext of a -- of a seminar.

Grant: It's all legitimate, Ryan. Besides, it will be a big boost to John's career.

Ryan: Well, once a politician, always a politician.

Grant: You are much more loyal to John Hudson than you are to your own brother, you know that?

Ryan: The guy saved your life. And you are repaying him back by -- by moving in on his wife.

Grant: Their marriage is in trouble. It is not my fault.

Ryan: Sharlene Hudson just walked in here and said she was never going to see you again. Now you can make as many moves --

[Knock at door]

Grant: Excuse me. Yes?

Stacey: Hi, Congressman, I'm Stacey Winthrop. We were both at Tops the other night when my brother punched your brother.

Grant: I'm sorry, this is kind of a bad time. I was just in the middle of --

Stacey: Oh, I don't want to speak to you. I'm trying to trace your brother.

Ryan: You've done that, counselor.

Stacey: Ah, pardon me, hi. I need to speak to you off the record.

Ryan: Oh, off the record?

Stacey: Yeah.

Grant: If you'll excuse me.

Stacey: Oh.

Ryan: This wouldn't have anything to do with your brother sucker-punching me at Tops?

Stacey: No, no. He himself will speak to you about that, I'm certain.

Ryan: Yeah. So, what is this about?

Stacey: Well, I'm defending a kid who allegedly mugged a sailor down at the docks.

Ryan: Ah, he was on leave from the Norfolk?

Stacey: Yes. And you signed the investigating officer's report.

Ryan: So, what do you want to talk to me about?

Stacey: Well, before we go before the actual judge, I'd like to go down to the scene and I was hoping you would come with me.

Ryan: That's kind of irregular, isn't it?

Stacey: I believe it would save the taxpayers a great deal of money. And I -- I do know that you Bay City police like to do that, don't you?

Ryan: Well, I'll -- I'll go with you on one condition.

Stacey: Which is what?

Ryan: That you let me take you out to dinner.

Stacey: Now, why would I do that?

Ryan: Well, because you know I feel bad about what happened between Frankie and Carl.

Stacey: Cass.

Ryan: Right, Cass. Um, and I'm pretty anxious to get things set for the right.

Stacey: Do I know that?

Ryan: Yes, you do know, now.

Stacey: All right. You're on.

Ryan: Hey, Grant, I'm out of here. I'll talk to you later.

Grant: Dr. Tribe, please. Oh, he isn't. Well, I'll speak to anybody who can tell me how long the seminar on...

[Knock at door]

Grant: I'll call you back. Yeah, what did you forget this time, Ryan?

Sharlene: It's not Ryan.

Grant: I knew you'd be back.

Sharlene: Stop right there. I know I said I wouldn't be back, but I would not be here unless a man's life were at stake.

Grant: Who's that?

Sharlene: Lucas.

Grant: Well, uh, come in.

Grant: You know Lucas? Well, I got to be up-front with you. I can't get involved in Lucas' case on a personal level.

Sharlene: Why not?

Grant: I just can't compromise my position.

Sharlene: Well, I'm not asking you to do that, no.

Grant: Ok, then what are you asking me?

Sharlene: Lucas' fiancée says that he left town to try to get evidence against the cartel.

Grant: Did he?

Sharlene: Well, he's been calling her every day at specific times, but for the -- the last two days, he hasn't called.

Grant: I see.

Sharlene: She is scared to death, Grant. She is afraid his life might be in danger.

Grant: And she came to see you?

Sharlene: To beg me to ask for your help.

Grant: How am I supposed to do that?

Sharlene: Use your contacts to help find Lucas.

Grant: I got to hand it to the man. You know, he may be a real slime, but he sure gets wonderful women to fight his battles for him. I'm sorry you're frightened.

Sharlene: I'm not. I made a promise to my husband, to my marriage, to myself. I'm honoring that.

Marley: Do you know when he'll be back? Ok. Could you just tell Dr. Frame that I -- no. Never mind. I don't want to leave a message. Thank you. No, thanks.

Jamie: If I came off like a big brother, forgive me.

Marley: Pompous older brother, maybe.

Jamie: What did you say?

Marley: Nothing.

Jamie: Was that word "pompous"?

Marley: I couldn't decide between pompous and --

Jamie: And what?

Marley: Supercilious. Pretentious. Bombastic.

Jamie: No, you didn't.

[Man singing in foreign language]

[Doorbell chimes]

Paulina: Want me to get that, Rachel?

Rachel: It's all right, I'm right here. Lily.

Lily: Oh, Rachel, darling. I hope I'm not late.

Rachel: Have I forgotten something?

Lily: Didn't Jamie tell you I was stopping by?

Rachel: No, Jamie is away, Lily.

Lily: Oh, well I left word with his secretary, dreadful girl. I have a check for his clinic. The benefit drive...

Rachel: Oh, how wonderful. Come on in.

Lily: Oh, thank you. Let me just put this down and I'll give it to you. Ah. Now, here we go. I hope this does some good.

Rachel: Oh, I'm sure it will. He'll be just thrilled to get this. Thank you so much.

Lily: And I thought since I was making the trip anyway, I would reciprocate for those wonderful flowers you sent mother when she was ill.

Rachel: Oh, you didn't have to do anything.

Lily: I know how much you care about good wine, so I thought --

Rachel: Oh, how lovely.

Lily: Oh, here, dear. Could you put these in the kitchen?

Rachel: Uh, Lily, uh...

Lily: Rachel, you're in for a treat. Three bottles of Beaujolais from our own vineyard.

Rachel: Isn't that lovely. You are very generous.

Lily: Oh, here, dear. My arm is killing me.

Rachel: Paulina doesn't work here.

Lily: Oh, but --

Rachel: They're just lovely, Lily. You were so sweet to think of us. Oh, Hilda, um, Lily brought some wine for us. Would you put them away for me, please?

Hilda: Of course I will.

Lily: I am so sorry, my dear. Are you a friend of Amanda's?

Rachel: Oh, Paulina is a member of this family.

Lily: Really?

Rachel: Yes.

Lily: Is she a cousin?

Rachel: No.

Lily: An exchange student.

Rachel: No, Lily.

Lily: A daughter-in-law?

Rachel: Lily, I'll explain it to you all in great detail when we see each other the next time. I just --

Lily: Oh, but I can't wait to hear all about it.

Rachel: I'm sure you can't. Thanks so much for the check and the wine, it's lovely.

Lily: Bye-bye.

Rachel: Talk to you soon.

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Rachel: I'm sorry, Paulina. She's a lovely lady, it was just that she was confused.

Paulina: Thank you for saying what you did. You don't know how much it means to me to hear you call me part of the family.

Rachel: Well, you are.

Paulina: You know, this isn't going to be easy for you. People are going to talk.

Rachel: Well, I've never been very good at listening to what other people have to say.

Paulina: If it were Iris' decision.

Rachel: Well, it wasn't Iris' decision. You belong with us now.

Paulina: I want you to be proud of me, Rachel.

Rachel: I'm sure I will be.

Paulina: I think I'm going to need your help.

Rachel: With what?

Paulina: I don't want people to mistake me for the maid anymore. I want them to look at me and just know that I belong. Teach me how to be a Cory.

Jake: What the hell took you so long?

Iris: Shh, lower your voice.

Jake: I have been leaving messages for you all day long, Iris.

Iris: Well I'm here now.

Jake: I've been trying to get a hold of you since yesterday.

Iris: Jake, do not speak to me like that.

Jake: Excuse me, Mrs. Wheeler.

Iris: I'm sorry, but I'm very concerned about Lucas. He's more important than this bogus heiress.

Jake: Tell me, what's wrong with Lucas.

Iris: He seems to have dropped out of sight.

Jake: Why?

Iris: It's none of your business.

Jake: Ooh, we are worried about him, aren't we?

Iris: Yes, yes I am.

Jake: Well, why don't we wrap this Paulina thing up, then you can go pine for Lucas and I can keep my personal life from falling around my ears.

Iris: Ok, what have you got?

Jake: Proof positive.

Iris: That she's a phony?

Jake: That she and Ken set this whole deal up.

Iris: Proof positive?

Jake: They're in cahoots.

Iris: Ha! And you have it? I mean -- I mean you've got it on tape?

Jake: Well, I have everything your lawyers will need.

Iris: Well, ok. Play it.

Jake: You know, Iris, I've been thinking...a lot. I think the information that I have is a little too valuable to let go for the paltry sum of money which we have been speaking about.

Iris: How much?

Jake: You know the check you wrote, right?

Iris: Yeah.

Jake: About four times that much.

Iris: Oh, I'm afraid that's too much.

Jake: I have to make what I need for this job. I'm walking away from this business. I'm having -- having trouble looking at myself in the mirror when I shave.

Iris: That's funny. I'm having trouble looking at you right now.

Jake: It's up to you, Iris. How much is it worth to get rid of Paulina?

Iris: Look, Jake, I can hardly think straight. I'm so concerned about Lucas.

Jake: You know, we all have our priorities, don't we?

Iris: All right, all right. I agree to pay you three times the amount we agreed on, but on one condition, that you give me the proof that I need.

Jake: Ok. Hold on to your ears, lady.

Paulina's voice: When I first read Maria's letter, you know, I didn't know where to begin. If you hadn't help me set up a way to get into the Cory house, I'd still be on the outside looking

Ken's voice: It's 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'd left out.

Ken's voice: And you told her no.

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'd look at things differently. Why. There would be questions.

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--

Jake: The check, please.

Iris: Very nice tape, Jake.

Jake: And that's McKinnon, m, c, capital k, this time.

Iris: But it's not enough.

Jake: What?

Iris: I'm afraid you are going to have to finish the job.

Jake: What are you talking about, Iris?

Iris: I'm talking about you finishing the job, Jake, and when you do, I'll hand over the money.

Jake: You are not going to do this to me.

Iris: I've already done it, Jake. There's not enough evidence.

Jake: Everything you asked for. They couldn't have said it better if they said it to music. They even talk about how Ken's going to get paid.

Iris: The stakes have gone up since we started.

Jake: Don't you tell me about stakes! I've almost lost the woman I love over this!

Iris: Look, Jake, I'm sorry. Those tapes were very helpful, but they're not worth triple the money.

Jake: What are you talking about, helpful? It proves it's a scam. End of story.

Iris: But not the end of Paulina. Rachel has officially named her Paulina Cory.

Jake: Well she can un-name her, all right.

Iris: Ok, those tapes make Rachel look very stupid...

Jake: Rachel will ditch her.

Iris: No.

Jake: Why not?

Iris: Because there's not enough proof. They don't prove that Paulina is not Daddy's daughter. It just proves that Ken and Paulina are working together.

Jake: So you're telling me that I don't get anything.

Iris: That's right, sweetie. When you've proved that Paulina is a nobody and a cheat, then I will only be too happy to hand over the money.

Jake: And I'm supposed to do what Rachel and all her high-paid investigators couldn't?

Iris: Exactly.

Jake: I'll tell you something, Iris. This job is costing me too much. I quit.

Iris: Well, you can't.

Jake: You're wrong. I already have your money.

Iris: You see, Jake, I thought you just might -- you know I had that feeling you might get a little bit shaky, so I stopped payment on your check. I guess you're broke, huh?

Jake: You...

Iris: And you wouldn't dare say anything to anybody about the things you've been doing with Paulina, especially Marley. No, Jake, I think your -- your best course is to keep working for me. But cheer up, cheer up. You'll get what you want. All you have to do is find out who Paulina Cantrell really is.

Rachel: There are pros and cons to being part of a wealthy family.

Paulina: Well, I can only think of the pros.

Rachel: That's because you think that you will no longer have any worries about money.

Paulina: Yeah, I know that doesn't mean there aren't other things to still worry about.

Rachel: There are obligations to wealth.

Paulina: I can handle it. I can handle anything now that I know who I am.

Rachel: I expect that's true. And you know what? I think it's time to introduce you to the community. I think we ought to have a party and introduce you to some of our friends.

[Doorbell chimes]

Rachel: They ought to get a chance to meet the newest member of our family.

Paulina: Rachel, thank you so much.

Stacey: Ok, so he's standing here. Right? Come here. My client couldn't have come up behind him. There's no room. You see?

Ryan: So what do you think really happened?

Stacey: I think that he probably hired a hooker. The hooker's pimp rolls him. Well, he gets embarrassed, he doesn't want to admit to that, right? So he -- I don't know -- he sees my client somewhere on the dock and he tries to pin it on him.

Ryan: Ok, I'll call him again.

Stacey: Good. Thank you.

Ryan: Anything else?

Stacey: Yeah. I know that you were out to nail Ted and that's why you kidnapped Frankie.

Ryan: Cass know that?

Stacey: Well, I do think you owe him an explanation.

Ryan: I don't. But if he really wants to know what happened, I'll tell him what went down that night.

Stacey: Good. I think he's angry enough to sue. So if I were you, I would try to smooth things over a little bit.

Ryan: You're not me. You're definitely not me. You know, all of a sudden I just got real hungry. What do you say about that dinner?

Stacey: I say it's a little early to eat.

Ryan: Ooh. Not for a foot-long hotdog. This guy makes his own relish.

Stacey: All right, yeah, you sold me. I got to go close up my office first. So I'll see you. I'll be back.

Ryan: I'll put one in the warmer.

Stacey: Yeah.

Ryan: Hurry back. Two foot-long hotdogs with everything on it, and heavy on the relish. Oh, get a horse, huh?

Vicky: Ryan.

Ryan: Well, you're off in a hurry someplace. I didn't know that you could move that fast.

Vicky: I'm going to the place where my ex-husband works, if you must know.

Ryan: Oh, I see. You got some time for an old friend?

Vicky: You don't give up, do you?

Ryan: "Give up" is not in my vocabulary.

Vicky: You just don't like admitting that you've been dumped. But I do admire your persistence.

Ryan: Well, thank you.

Vicky: You got me a hot dog. Boy, oh boy, what a guy. Thank you.

Ryan: That's for Stacey Winthrop.

Vicky: Stacey Winthrop?

Ryan: You know her?

Vicky: Know her? That conservative, pushy corporate yuppie?

Ryan: I guess that means you are not really crazy about her, huh?

Vicky: Well, this just goes to prove your absolute lack of taste in women.

Ryan: Well, I can see how a woman like Stacey would appear corporate and conservative to you... [Laughs] Considering who you are.

Vicky: Is that an insult?

Ryan: You can take it any way you want.

Vicky: Take this.

Jake: I don't believe this.

Iris: Jake, look, let's -- just put ourselves in Ken's shoes, ok? Now let's assume that Paulina is a fraud perpetrated by him. Now what does he need to do to pull it off?

Jake: You tell me.

Iris: Ok, he needs to find someone born in Central America, someone conceived at the time Daddy was there. An anonymous child, the right age, the right physical characteristics, the right blood group.

Jake: What was the name of the agency through which Paulina first came into the United States?

Iris: Why? Rachel's already talked to them.

Jake: Maybe Rachel didn't ask the right questions, all right, Iris.

Iris: True. Jake, that's true. I probably still got it --

Jake: I'll start there.

Iris: Well, you just do that. Get on to it ASAP.

Jake: You know what's something, Iris. Back to signing your name at the bottom of checks with big zeroes, all right?

Iris: Right. But, Jake, don't ring me unless you've got something positive. I want to keep my line open for Lucas.

Jake: No. Not today.

Marley: Sorry to interrupt.

Jake: Hey, are you kidding? You changed your mind. Wow!

Marley: Jake.

Jake: What's wrong?

Marley: I was supposed to have a meeting with the harbormaster today, but instead, I got a call from Caroline.

Jake: About what?

Marley: About the check that you wrote for that painting. It bounced, yes.

Jake: Ah, yeah.

Marley: Jake, I told you not to get in over your head.

Jake: Maybe I got carried away a little bit.

Marley: A little bit?

Jake: It doesn't make any difference, Marley. You and I are meant to be together, I know that.

Marley: Jake.

Jake: Stay right here.

Marley: No, where are you going?

Jake: I'm going to get some champagne, what else?

Marley: Champagne for what?

Jake: Well, you're back. We're going to celebrate.

Marley: I'm back because I'm worried about you.

Jake: Nothing to worry about, baby. Everything is going to be fine.

Marley: Jake. Jake! Jake. Jake, Jake. Jake. Look at me.

Paulina: Jake, you will never -- Marley.

Marley: Hello, Paulina.

Ken: Yeah, she's pretty vulnerable.

Rachel: I hope this works out for her. You know, reaching out, helping go forward, I think. Does that make any sense?

Ken: It makes perfect sense. And I know it hasn't been easy.

Rachel: You've been an enormous help.

Ken: I wouldn't have missed a minute of it. Well, maybe one or two.

Rachel: We got through it though, didn't we?

Ken: Somehow.

Rachel: I can't imagine the last few months without you.

Ken: Well, then maybe it's time to think about the future.

Rachel: I don't think so.

Ken: All right, how about the present? Tonight. You think you're ready for that?

Vicky: Oh, man, I'm sorry. Really, I'm so -- I'm so sorry, Ryan. I just -- I'm -- I'm sorry. I couldn't take anymore today. I'm...

Ryan: Now why is today unlike any other day?

Vicky: Because it's the pits. I mean it's -- it's just really, really --

Ryan: That's cold.

Vicky: The -- the pits.

Ryan: Uh-huh.

Vicky: You know, I mean the day was bad, and the people were bad and everything's bad, but I'm not going to let it get me out of control really. I'm going to stay in complete control.

Ryan: Want a bite of my hot dog? It's homemade relish.

Vicky: Stacey, I mean Stacey really put me over the edge.

Ryan: Oh, come on, not Stacey again.

Vicky: I've got to tell you that under that three-piece suit of hers, she does not have any heart.

Ryan: What does that mean?

Vicky: I think you have to be on the receiving end of her form of justice until you can truly understand.

Ryan: Oh, I see. Uh -- what's with the hot--

Vicky: You know that Stacey played a major role in taking away two children from my family?

Ryan: Taking away children?

Vicky: That's all I want to say.

Ryan: Oh, you're talking about the custody battles.

Vicky: Oh, she pulled out every dirty trick in the book.

Ryan: Well, um, I'm sure she didn't intend -- here's for the hot dogs -- I'm sure she didn't intend anything personal about it.

Vicky: What do you mean nothing personal about it? She'd slit your throat as soon as she would -- she'd -- she'd smile that stinky smile of hers.

Ryan: Come on now, just admit -- just admit -- you're just a teeny little bit jealous, huh?

Vicky: Oh, not you, too.

Ryan: Now what does that mean?

Vicky: What have I any reason to be jealous of Stacey Winthrop for?

Ryan: Well, maybe because she's got a meaningful career, and while you are sort of a dilettante.

Vicky: My sister is the one who speaks French.

Ryan: It means superficial, one who dabbles.

Vicky: Dabble this. You're a jerk.

Grant: Ryan. I need to talk to you right away. This is an emergency.

Paulina: I'm sorry things haven't worked out for you and Jake, Marley.

Marley: Are you?

Paulina: I know how hard it is. But I also know it's best not to look back. At some point you have to get on with your life.

Marley: Excellent advice. That's exactly what I am doing. I'm getting on with my life, which is why I want to talk to you.

Paulina: Well, I would love to talk sometime. Right now --

Marley: You've been spending an awful lot of time here alone with Jake.

Paulina: Yes, that's true. I find him exciting to work with.

Marley: Well, I hope that's all you intend to find exciting about him.

Paulina: What do you mean by that?

Marley: Don't make me spell it out for you.

Paulina: You don't have the right to tell me what to do.

Marley: Maybe not. But I do intend to be heard. Shall we go for a walk?

Paulina: Walk? Well, Jake is going to be...

Marley: I can write Jake a note. Jake, Paulina and I went for a little walk to chitchat, Marley. How's that?

Paulina: Great.

Marley: Shall we go?

Grant: You'll have to excuse us, Vicky.

Vicky: Will I?

Grant: Look, I'm not in the mood for wild, irresponsible cub reporters, ok?

Vicky: Oh, I'm in the mood for a pompous politician who doesn't give a damn about the people who elected him.

Grant: Good-bye, Vicky.

Vicky: I have as much right to be here as you do, hotshot.

Ryan: Oh, here comes Stacey, Vicky.

Stacey: Oh, hi. Where's your bun? What's going on here? Real popular spot, huh?

Vicky: Yeah -- yeah the Harrison brothers are having a powwow. Squaws aren't allowed.

Grant: No. Stacey can stay.

Stacey: And why is that?

Vicky: That's a good question.

Grant: It's about a client of yours.

Stacey: I think I know which one you mean.

Vicky: Well, it shouldn't be too hard to narrow it down. You don't exactly have what you'd call a thriving practice.

Grant: If you don't leave, Vicky, we're going to have to take this someplace else.

Ryan: Vicky, do yourself a favor. Just leave now. I'll talk to you later.

Vicky: Not a chance.

Stacey: So what's going on?

Grant: Ryan, I want you to see if Lucas is dead or alive.

Stacey: Lucas? What do you mean by Lucas? You've heard something?

Grant: He's pulling some stunt to try and ice the cartel.

Stacey: He's already left?

Grant: What, you knew about it?

Stacey: Yes. I told him that I would make a deal with you first. But he was hot to deliver some guy named...Marius?

Ryan: Marius.

Grant: Marius? He's the head of the whole cartel.

Ryan: Yeah, nobody else has been able to get him yet either.

Grant: That would be a major victory.

Ryan: Not only is this Marius guy incredibly dangerous, he's also incredibly intelligent. I don't even think Lucas is a match for him. Nobody is.
