Cass: Honey?

Frankie: Hmm.

Cass: Going pretty fast, don't you think?

Frankie: Am I?

Cass: Jeez, Frankie! You almost hit that tree!

Frankie: I was at least four feet away from that tree, Cass.

Cass: Oh, great. Now I know you're not paying attention. You just missed the turn to our house.

Frankie: I didn't miss it. I passed it on purpose.

Cass: Oh, I see. Well, would you mind sharing the reasons with me?

Frankie: We're on the way to the farm to talk to Sharlene.

Cass: Now?

Frankie: Yes.

Cass: But we just saw -- wait a minute.

Frankie: Don't argue with me, all right?

Cass: What are you thinking, Frankie?

Frankie: Sharlene was at --

Cass: Watch the road!

Frankie: Sharlene was at Tops with Grant Harrison, not with her husband. You and I, darling, are going to set her straight.

Cass: Pull over.

Frankie: No.

Cass: Pull over!

Frankie: No.

Sharlene: How can you say that, Grant?

Grant: How can I say that I love you? Are you kidding?

Sharlene: You don't even know me.

Grant: I know who you were, and I know what you've become.

Sharlene: Well, you're fooling yourself.

Grant: Why do you say that?

Sharlene: You're fooling yourself. You want me to say, "I love you" and then you want me to be someone else.

Grant: No.

Sharlene: Why can't you just let me go? Why can't you get on with your life without me?

Grant: Because nothing you could say can make me leave you, Sharlene, nothing.

Ken: Paulina, the only thing that's kept me from telling Rachel the truth has been you. And every time I tried to tell you --

Jake: You're always just about to do that, right, Ken?

Ken: Every time I've tried to tell you the truth, I took one look at you, and I realized how much it meant to you to belong to someone and I kept silent. If it had only been about getting you money, I'd have ended this thing a long time ago. And now Jake has changed all that. You know the truth. It is about money now. Paulina, this could blow up in your face. You could be named an accessory. You've got to come with me to Rachel. Do the right thing!

Jake: Do the right thing. You've got to be kidding.

Ken: Paulina, tell Rachel the truth. You know I'm right. Come on. Let's go.

Jake: Paulina, you can't be that dumb.

Ken: I'll take the blame. You get on with your life.

Jake: What life? Even if Rachel buys that you're not part of this, you won't have two dimes to rub together. Why in the hell should she buy it?

Ken: Because we'll tell her.

Jake: Right, Ken, you the two truth-sayers. Paulina, Rachel is going to remember every single lie you told to get into that house. And what in the hell is he going to say, huh? "Look, honey, I've been lying like a rug, but this is really the truth."

Ken: I'll make her believe me.

Jake: Rachel is no pushover. She'll chew you two up and spit you out. We are talking major felony here.

Ken: Paulina!

Paulina: Stop it!

Paulina: There's only one thing for me to do.

Paulina: And I want to do it.

Grant: I know you're trying to sort out 100 different things, but why can't you just accept the way I feel about you?

Sharlene: Can't you see? You and John are both doing the same thing. You're both trying to find the woman you first met in me. And neither one of those women exists anymore.

Grant: Parts of those women are still --

Sharlene: Those women are gone! I am here. I am now. Do you understand what I am saying? You and John can stop pulling me in two directions. Because -- because the woman you're looking at now isn't the same woman that either one of you wants! And we all know it.

Grant: Do you remember the day that I came to Morgan pavilion to see you?

Sharlene: Yes, I do.

Grant: When I came there, I was looking for Sharly, but she was gone.

Sharlene: That is what I'm trying to tell you, Grant.

Grant: Sharlene, I looked into those beautiful eyes of yours, and I saw a side of you that I had never seen before. And I fell in love with you all over again.

Sharlene: Don't you ever miss her?

Grant: Sharly?

Sharlene: She loved you. She didn't have any doubts the way I do.

Grant: And I don't have to miss her, because I see her in you all the time. I see her right now.

Sharlene: So, you really like me the way I am -- this way?

Grant: Like you? I love you. Please believe that.

Sharlene: I guess I do.

Grant: Can John say that?

Sharlene: What?

Grant: "I love you, and I will love what you will become." Can he say that? He can't, and you know he can't, Sharlene.

Felicia: Oh, [Indistinct]. I can't believe it's almost October. Mitch has missed the whole -- well.

Rachel: I got a letter from him.

Felicia: Did you?

Rachel: Mm-hmm. Very tourist report.

Felicia: Sounds like Mitch, doesn't it?

Rachel: He sounds very happy.

Felicia: He is.

Rachel: But you're not.

Felicia: Oh, I just never would have thought things could be so complicated.

Rachel: It doesn't sound as though he's planning to come home very soon.

Felicia: He's not.

Rachel: Are you going out there?

Felicia: I can't. You know that.

Rachel: What are you going to do?

Felicia: Has Iris said anything to you about Lucas? I mean, anything at all?

Rachel: Well, she's worried about him. But no, she hasn't been very forthcoming with details.

Felicia: You've heard what he's done?

Rachel: Yes. We're doing a cover story for Brava.

Felicia: Really?

Rachel: She hasn't said much, though. She asked for some time off.

Felicia: They broke up.

Rachel: Iris and Lucas? Are you sure?

Felicia: Yes.

Rachel: Oh. Well, I knew they were having... do you know what happened?

Felicia: I do.

Rachel: Oh, Felicia, what are you going to do about Mitch?

Felicia: I don't know. I'm married to him.

Rachel: Do you want to be?

Felicia: God, we have so many problems, you know.

Rachel: Yes, I do know. I was responsible for some of them.

Felicia: You know what's so funny about all of this?

Rachel: What?

Felicia: I do understand the way Mitch felt about you.

Rachel: I guess the way you feel about Lucas.

Felicia: I care about him, a lot.

Rachel: And a child.

Felicia: Somewhere. But for the second time around, our timing is completely off.

Rachel: That happens. But you're right. A child is a very powerful connection.

Felicia: Hey, come on. What's the matter?

Rachel: Oh, nothing. I was just thinking about Paulina.

Felicia: Is there a problem?

Rachel: I just keep thinking that if she had grown up in this house with Mac, she wouldn't be making the mistake she's making now.

Felicia: What mistake?

Rachel: Jake McKinnon.

Felicia: Jake? Jake and Paulina? I thought he was with Marley.

Rachel: Right.

Felicia: So did you. I see.

Rachel: She's with him tonight. She has very high expectations.

Felicia: And you don't think Jake can live up to them.

Rachel: She's coming into a lot of money. I don't want Jake to take advantage of her.

Felicia: I think it's wonderful that you're so concerned.

Rachel: Yeah. I owe it to Mac to lookout after her.

Felicia: Just when you thought all your kids were grown up, right?

Rachel: I had this terrible feeling, you know. The same feeling I get with Amanda and Jamie. I never get it with Matthew.

Felicia: Well, give him time.

Rachel: Oh, thanks.

Felicia: What kind of feeling?

Rachel: Oh, that something's brewing and that there's not going to be anything I can do about it.

Felicia: Maybe you just have to let go, and whatever happens, happens.

Rachel: Mac used to say, don't borrow trouble from tomorrow.

Felicia: Mac was right.

Rachel: Yes, but I ought to be able to protect her and yet I'm not her mother.

Felicia: You want to be.

Rachel: No, I don't. But she gets to me somehow. She's had nothing and no one. I don't want to see her hurt again.

Felicia: What are you going to do, though? You can only be here if she needs you. Paulina has to learn to take care of herself.

Paulina: Jake's right.

Jake: That a girl!

Paulina: I can't go to Rachel.

Jake: Now you're talking.

Ken: Shut up, Jake.

Jake: Seems to be the only smart one on your team, Ken.

Ken: You can't bury this, Paulina. I told you I'd take the blame. I will do whatever it takes to convince Rachel that you're innocent. If the cops are called in, you won't be involved.

Jake: Get out of here. The woman has made up her mind.

Ken: And don't listen to this creep! He's lied to you! He's used you! He's gone behind your back! Now he's trying to blackmail you!

Jake: I used -- who, who's the one who came up with the Maria-daughter story? That was you, not --

Paulina: Will you shut up. You're tearing me apart. I never asked you to come and lie to me.

Ken: I know.

Paulina: But you did. And you gave me the one thing I always wanted that I couldn't give myself, a family.

Jake: A rich one, too.

Paulina: For the first time in my life, I felt like I belonged some place. You took me out of a slum and now you want to put me back.

Ken: No. It's not that simple.

Paulina: It is that simple!

Jake: She's got you there, Ken.

Paulina: I -- I could be Mac's daughter. I mean, there is still that possibility, right? It's not fair. I never hurt you. I never hurt Rachel. I never hurt anybody. Rachel believes in me. I make her happy. And in my heart, I believe in me, too. I know I'm a Cory.

Ken: Paulina, there's no way of knowing who Mac's daughter is. It's a lie. I made it up. And take it from me. Living with a lie like that is hell. Ok. Let's say that we all do decide to keep the secret. We pay off Jake here. We try to keep Rachel from ever finding out that you're not Mac's daughter.

Jake: Everyone living wealthily ever after.

Ken: Now think about living with that day after day after day, accepting their gratitude, their love, going to family functions together.

Jake: Cashing their checks.

Ken: Yeah, think about that. Really, think about that one. How are you going to feel every time you have to spend money that doesn't belong to you?

Paulina: I make Rachel happy.

Jake: You know something. That ought to be good for a couple of bucks.

Ken: But what about you? Aren't you going to start to hate her for making you feel guilty?

Jake: You know something, Ken. I never noticed that happening with you, all this tormenting. It never quite stopped you from hanging around the mansion.

Ken: And what about him, hmm? You think he's going to quit after only getting one payment? How's it going to feel living, having him breathing down your neck all the time, always with his hand out, always threatening to blow the whole deal?

Jake: Just want a little reward for not going to Iris and blowing the whistle.

Paulina: Put yourself in my shoes.

Ken: I can. I've been lying to Rachel. And it's killing me.

Paulina: What if --

Jake: Don't back down now, honey. He's talking out of his hat.

Ken: Paulina, you remember when Rachel took your side against Iris and your foster mother? You remember what you said to me then?

Paulina: I said a lot of things, Ken.

Ken: You said that nobody had ever stood up for you before. Well, Rachel didn't stand up for you because she thought you were Mac's daughter. She stood up for you because you were you. Because of the person you had become in spite of the life that you've led. Rachel knows that you're still that person. She knows that you're innocent. You've got to believe that.

Paulina: I don't know what to believe.

Jake: I do. I believe in the money, so I say we stop this tearful rendition of "war and peace" and start divvying up the inheritance.

John: If Mr. Mason refuses to take his medication again tomorrow morning, will you call me, Toni?

Nurse: I'll mention it at report.

John: No, don't mention it. Write it down. Half the time I tell the night nurses something and the -- I'm sorry.

Nurse: It's ok, John.

John: No, you always remember. I apologize.

Man: Dr. Hudson?

John: Yes.

Man: It is an honor to meet you. I hope I wasn't interrupting.

John: No. You are?

Man: Guillaume Hiver.

John: Hiver?

Guillaume: I am Dr. Hiver's son, the eldest, actually.

John: Oh, well, hello, hello.

Guillaume: My father has dispatched me to you.

John: You came all the way from Nice?

Guillaume: Not quite so far, just Atlanta. I just spent 10 days at the conference.

John: I see. Do you have any identification?

Guillaume: Pardon?

John: How do I know you are who you say you are?

Guillaume: Well, will this do?

John: Yes. Yes, that'll do fine. I'm sorry. I'm losing it.

Guillaume: I'm sorry?

John: Oh, recently someone tried to -- never mind. Your father sent you for me?

Guillaume: Yes, yes. He wants you to accompany me to France. There is a seminar next week, and he wants you to be his guest of honor.

John: Me?

Guillaume: Yes. I just spoke with your chief of staff, and she has cleared your calendar for next week. And I have also made arrangements for a flight in New York for you on the Concorde.

John: The Concorde?

Guillaume: Oh, yes, and you and your wife, of course.

John: Well, I'm afraid my wife won't be able to make it. She has been ill and she's pregnant.

Guillaume: Congratulations. I had no idea.

John: Thank you. Thank you. So I don't think it would be prudent of me to leave at this time. I hope you understand.

Guillaume: Of course. Would you like to think about it?

John: Yes. Yes, if I could.

Guillaume: I am flying back to France tonight. You can reach me later tomorrow with your decision. I hope to see you there.

John: Thank you. Thank you very much. And please tell your father I'm quite honored.

Guillaume: The honor would be ours, doctor. Good evening.

John: Good evening.

Cass: Pull over!

Frankie: No!

Cass: You're going to barge into Sharlene's house and tell her what to do with her life?

Frankie: Well, someone has to knock some sense into her. Sharlene loves John. If she keeps doing what she's doing, she's going to risk losing him for good.

Cass: Great. And you think you can change her mind?

Frankie: Well, I have before.

Cass: This is none of your business.

Frankie: I am making it my business.

Cass: Since when do you meddle in other people's -- what's really bothering you, Frankie?

Frankie: I am not going to watch my family fall apart at the seams, ok.

Cass: But --

Frankie: No buts! That's it!

Cass: What exactly do you think you're going to say to Sharlene?

Frankie: I am going to tell her to get her act together before she becomes a statistic.

Cass: Smooth. Oh, that's smooth.

Frankie: Maybe if we help keep somebody else's marriage together, it'll be good for our karma.

Cass: Are you afraid that the same thing could happen to us?

Frankie: Oh, look around you, Cass. Everybody we know is getting divorced, Sam and Amanda, Mitch and Felicia. The last people on earth I ever thought I was going to have to worry about are John and Sharlene, and look at where they are now.

Cass: They have been through a few rough months.

Frankie: They're having a baby and neither one of them is even happy about it.

Cass: Oh, I don't think that's true.

Frankie: How can they be? John is working 18-hour shifts just to keep his mind off everything. Sharlene is gallivanting around town with some congressman who, that is one -- I would love to lay some negative energy on that son of a... I don't believe this.

Cass: What?

Frankie: See that car parked next to the barn?

Cass: Yeah.

Frankie: Grant Harrison's.

Cass: Really?

Frankie: Uh-huh.

Cass: That lousy opportunistic --

Frankie: Are you with me on this?

Cass: I'm right behind you, baby.

Frankie: Great.

Sharlene: I am not the prize in some contest between you and John.

Grant: I know that.

Sharlene: Do you know that? Whatever decisions I make, I make on my own. You and John can point at each other's flaws forever. It won't change that.

Grant: I'm sorry.

Sharlene: The way you look at me.

Grant: What?

Sharlene: You love being in love, don't you?

Grant: Doesn't everybody?

Sharlene: No, it's different with you. It's like it drives you.

Frankie: It is time for you to leave, congressman.

Sharlene: What did you say?

Frankie: I think I was pretty clear, don't you?

Grant: It is late.

Sharlene: No, I can handle this, Grant.

Grant: I really got to be going. I don't want to cause any friction between you and your family.

Sharlene: You're not doing that.

Grant: May I call you tomorrow?

Sharlene: Yes.

Grant: Remember what I said, ok?

Sharlene: I'll make some coffee. And I don't need a chaperone.

Cass: Oh, smooth, Frankie, real smooth.

Frankie: Did you see the way that turkey acted in here?

Cass: Yeah, he was slimy.

Frankie: He's a leech.

Cass: But you're going about it all wrong.

Frankie: What are you talking about? Did you see how he behaves with her?

Cass: Yes. And I also saw how you antagonized Sharlene. You're not going to get anywhere that way.

Frankie: Right. You're right. I promise I will be good.

Cass: Good. I think you should talk to her alone.

Frankie: Where are you going to go?

Cass: I'll go find John.

Frankie: Oh, thank you.

Cass: You're welcome. Remember, go easy.

Frankie: Ok.

Cass: See you later.

Sharlene: Ok, another five minutes and we'll have -- where's Cass?

Frankie: He wanted us to have a chance to talk alone.

Sharlene: What brought you out here tonight, in the first place?

Frankie: After what happened at Tops earlier, do you have to ask?

Sharlene: Oh, you came to wag your finger at me.

Frankie: Sharlene, are you, like, dating this creep now or what?

Sharlene: Frankie.

Frankie: I'm not -- I'm sorry. I know I promised to be good, but I really --

Sharlene: Promised who? What are you talking about?

Frankie: Does it matter at all to you that you may be driving John away for good?

Sharlene: He doesn't want me the way I am, do you know how that feels?

Frankie: Oh, oh, I see. I see. John, the man that you swore to me just last week that you love more than anybody else in the whole world, he doesn't understand you. John, the one who stood by you during your entire illness, your hospitalization, and your recovery. John, the father of the child that you happen to be carrying. John doesn't understand you but some stranger with a big-shot job and fancy suits, he wants you just the way you are, right? He understands you better than your own husband.

Sharlene: Yes!

Paulina: Mac and Maria did have a daughter. That much is true.

Ken: That's what Maria's neighbors told me.

Paulina: Do you know for sure that I am not his child?

Ken: No.

Jake: Good point.

Paulina: Then it's not just a lie. There is a chance.

Ken: A very slim one.

Paulina: I remember the first time I walked into that house. I knew I belonged there. I sat in Mac's library. I spent time with Rachel. I went to his grave. I talked to him. I could feel him reaching out to me.

Jake: Exactly.

Ken: Paulina, you can't hang a life on a feeling.

Paulina: Then you just tell me one thing.

Ken: What?

Paulina: What is this going to do to Rachel? How will this hurt her?

Ken: The time has come for honesty.

Paulina: I know how much pride she has. We'd be telling the whole world that Iris was right and that Rachel was a fool.

Ken: She will not be a fool. She never was a fool. She was grieving and I took advantage of that.

Jake: Ken, the woman's going to look like a fool.

Paulina: Why should I do that to her, especially when I could be the daughter? Don't you see? All we have to do is keep quiet and everybody wins.

Jake: Sounds good to me.

Paulina: I get a family, and Rachel gets to keep thinking that she carried out Mac's last wish.

Ken: And Jake gets his money.

Jake: Just enough to save this business, to marry Marley. Life is good and, Ken, Rachel won't hate your guts and send you back to prison. What's not to love?

Paulina: Ken, I'm paying Jake. I am Mac's daughter. You said yourself this isn't about money. I just want to be a part of this family.

Ken: Now, slow down.

Paulina: You got me into this. I had no say in everything that's happened up till now. I think it's time that I started calling the shots.

Ken: All right. But I don't want any Cory money going to this piece of garbage.

Jake: Now, wait just a minute.

Ken: You'll get your money, dirt bag! But you'll get it from me. I don't want you touching anything of Rachel's or Paulina's.

Jake: Well, Ken, how are you going to come up with that kind of money?

Ken: Let me worry about that. I made the mistake. I'll pay for it.

Paulina: How?

Jake: That's what I want to know.

Ken: I said I'll get the cash! And I want you out of their life. You and I are going to destroy all the evidence, and then you are never going to interfere in Rachel's life or Paulina's life again. Is that understood

Jake: I really don't care where the money comes from, Ken, as long as I have it by Friday.

Ken: That is too soon. You'll get your damn money. Let's. I'll take you home.

Paulina: You don't deserve to be alive.

Cass: Hey, John.

John: Cass. Little late for a checkup, isn't it?

Cass: Not when I'm the one who's doing the checking up.

John: Checking up on me. Well, I'm fine, really. Thank you for asking.

Cass: So, you going to Paris?

John: News travels fast, doesn't it?

Cass: Yeah.

John: No. No, I don't think I'm going to Paris.

Cass: You don't want to leave Sharlene.

John: I don't think it matters one bit to Sharlene.

Cass: I don't think you believe that for a second, John.

John: Do you know that just because Grant Harrison was my patient, I am now considered the leading physician in this country in the treatment of his disease?

Cass: It's not just because of it --

John: And also, just because of Grant Harrison, my entire life is falling apart. I doubt that my marriage will last the year.

Cass: I wish I knew what to say, John.

John: Sharlene says that I don't have any idea what she needs anymore. I don't have any idea what she's become. So she's bouncing around town with Grant Harrison. You know, maybe she -- maybe she's right.

Cass: About what?

John: Maybe I don't like what she's become. You know, I've changed my mind. I am going to Paris. After all, Sharlene doesn't need me. She hasn't in a long time.

Frankie: Why didn't you tell me John had moved out?

Sharlene: I did tell you. I told you today. It's temporary.

Frankie: Sharlene --

Sharlene: Look, not everything I do makes front page news.

Frankie: Who do you think you're talking to, Sharlene? Don't you know how much I care about you and John?

Sharlene: Yes, but everyone thinks they know what's best for me, and I'm tired of doing what the general consensus determines, Frankie. I'm trying to figure out who I am.

Frankie: Without your husband.

Sharlene: If I have to, yes.

Frankie: That man has stood by you through every bad turn you've had, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Yes, I know that, Frankie, and now he doesn't like the end result.

Frankie: That is not true.

Sharlene: It is true! You don't know everything. You don't. All of a sudden John is judging me.

Frankie: Did it ever occur to you that maybe it's because you're running around town with another man? I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Sharlene: Look, I know what it must look like to everyone. But Grant has been very, very understanding. He doesn't push me, Frankie. He doesn't push me. You know what. When I found out what I've been hiding inside all these years, I couldn't get enough of new things. I felt like I wanted to -- I wanted to make up for lost time. I wanted to take chances. I wanted to live.

Frankie: And John won't let you do that.

Sharlene: No, John won't let me do that.

Frankie: Don't believe that, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Frankie, I don't blame him. I don't. I mean, the man watched me lose control of myself month after month after month. And now, and now he's afraid that if I go too far, the same thing will happen. But, Frankie, it can't. You see, because, because everything -- I am aware of every decision I make now, and it is so exciting I can't even tell you.

Frankie: What about the baby, Sharlene?

Sharlene: I'm very happy about the baby.

Frankie: Do you and John ever talk about the baby?

Sharlene: Jeez. I'm glad you brought that up, 'cause I need a childbirth coach. Will you do it?

Frankie: What?

Sharlene: I can't go with John right now. Please understand that.

Frankie: I don't know about that, Sharlene.

Sharlene: He's probably too busy right now anyway, Frankie.

Frankie: I'm sure he would rearrange his schedule, Sharlene.

Sharlene: Frankie, I'm asking you. Please.

Frankie: Sure. Ok. Fine.

Sharlene: Thank you. You'll be great. You'll be great.

[Vehicle approaching]

Frankie: Cass. Look, um, you take care, ok?

Sharlene: Sure. I am.

Frankie: Ok. See you.

Rachel: If someone had told me a few months ago that Mac had another daughter --

Felicia: And here you are sitting up waiting for her, worried about some date she's on.

Rachel: I would have said that they were certifiable.

Felicia: Yeah. Life really is not very predictable, is it?

Rachel: You know there are moments when she resembles him.

Felicia: I think she resembles Amanda, too.

Rachel: Do you?

Felicia: Yeah. You are doing a good thing, Rachel. You are.

Rachel: You look tired.

Felicia: I guess I probably am. I'm not sleeping very well.

Rachel: You want to talk?

Felicia: No, no, no. I really can't. I'd like to, but I can't. I've got a show I've got to tape early tomorrow morning. If I don't get some sleep, these bags are going to start to have bags.

Rachel: Ok, I'll walk you out.

Felicia: Ok.

Rachel: This was like old times.

Felicia: It was, wasn't it? Listen. I don't want you to worry about Paulina and Jake. It doesn't matter what he does, but she does have you, and believe me, that's a lot.

Rachel: Oh, that's sweet.

Felicia: I'll see you later?

Rachel: Ok.

Felicia: Ok. Bye.

Rachel: Bye. Well, I -- I didn't expect to see you two coming in together.

Ken: After we talked, I went over to Jake's.

Rachel: Oh. Well, Paulina, I had said that I was worried about you. I hope that was all right.

Paulina: I don't mind.

Rachel: So, how did it go?

Paulina: With Jake?

Rachel: Yes.

Ken: You can tell Rachel the whole story, Paulina.

Paulina: It's awfully late.

Ken: It's not too late.

Rachel: Too late for what? Tell me what?

Paulina: Jake is getting back together with Marley. They're probably going to be married.

Rachel: Oh, Paulina, I'm sorry.

Paulina: You were right about him, Rachel.

Rachel: I didn't want to be. I know you cared for him.

Paulina: Well, that's all over now.

Rachel: I wish you hadn't had to go through this. Are you going to be all right?

Paulina: I think so.

Paulina: I just feel pretty stupid. I mean, it seems like I'll believe anything men tell me.

Rachel: Well, don't judge all men by Jake.

Paulina: Right.

Rachel: Someday there'll be just the right person for you.

Paulina: Yeah. Well, I'm pretty tired. I can't tell you how much it means to me that you care like this.

Rachel: That's all right.

Paulina: I'll talk to you soon, Ken.

Ken: Sure.

Rachel: How bad was it?

Ken: Well, you were right about Jake, that guy's a real reptile.

Rachel: What did he say?

Ken: It doesn't matter now. Paulina's through with him.

Rachel: Well, maybe I shouldn't go on my trip.

Ken: Why?

Rachel: Well, Paulina. I'll miss you.

Ken: Paulina's going to be fine. She's learned a lot about survival. And, as for me, you're going to have to miss me anyway.

Rachel: I will?

Ken: You remember that trip I told you about -- the project in Nova Scotia?

Rachel: Yes, you said you weren't going to take it. Something change your mind?

Ken: The money, honey. They made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Hey, it's not dangerous.

Rachel: You're not just saying that so I won't worry?

Ken: Well, thanks for worrying.

Rachel: Ken, thank you for going after Paulina. You always seem to be saving one of us.

Ken: It means so much to me.

Rachel: Take care.

Ken: See you.

Frankie: And then she asked me to be her coach in her child-birthing classes.

Cass: Instead of John?

Frankie: Uh-huh. I was always able to get Sharlene to at least listen to me before, you know. And I've never seen her like this.

Cass: Well, we all have to accept the fact that Sharlene is acting differently because she is different. Anju hormones or something.

Frankie: She is pregnant.

Cass: Can that happen, really?

Frankie: Sure.

Cass: So if I see you do something that I didn't ever expect to ever see you do, like, you know, your behavior in the car this evening, for example, that means you could be pregnant?

Frankie: Maybe.

Cass: Frankie.

Frankie: Cass.

Cass: What?

Frankie: Relax, would you?

Cass: Ok. Hey, you're going to make a great coach for Sharlene.

Frankie: You think so?

Cass: Oh, absolutely. When her pains get bad, you know, you can put her in a trance, and get her to release her id from her super ego or whatever it is that you release.

Frankie: You really do try, don't you?

Cass: Oh, yeah, I really do.

Frankie: Will you promise me that if we're ever having trouble, we'll talk?

Cass: I promise.

Frankie: That we'll never forget what it feels like to hold each other. How right that feels.

Cass: I won't forget.

Frankie: That when we kiss, we know that there's nobody else in the world that we can love or feel as much --

Sharlene: John, that's wonderful news.

John: Yeah, it's an honor just to be asked.

Sharlene: Congratulations.

John: Thank you.

Sharlene: How long is it for?

John: Just a week.

Sharlene: Hmm. That's not too bad.

John: No. No, it's not long.

Sharlene: Your career is really taking off.

John: Yeah, everything seems to be falling right into place.

Sharlene: About tonight, John.

John: No, forget it. I lost my temper, or at least I know it looked like I did.

Sharlene: Grant just wanted to celebrate, John. That's all.

John: Fine.

Sharlene: Fine?

John: I think this trip could do us both some good.

Sharlene: Yeah. I suppose it could.

John: I need some time away, and you need --

Sharlene: I need some time, too.

John: Right. Besides, if I'm out of town, we can't fight, unless I call.

Sharlene: You better call.

John: That would be all right with you? You have a checkup next week, don't you?

Sharlene: Yeah, I do. I'll tell you all about it.

John: Great. Listen, this is the name of the hotel that I'll be staying at.

Sharlene: Ok.

John: Call me if you need anything.

Sharlene: I will. I'll call you.

John: I am proud of you, you know.

Sharlene: You go on.

John: And I'm sorry if I don't give you what you need anymore.

Sharlene: John -- I'm proud of you, too.

John: Good-bye.

Sharlene: [Come back safely, ok? John. Please go.
