Grant: Hi, there, Grant Harrison. Hope you vote for me in November. Hi, doctor, Grant Harrison. Hi, how are you? Nice to meet you. Grant Harrison.

Grant: Well, Dr. Benson.

Taylor: I hope you're not asking for my vote.

Grant: Well, maybe just a debate on the issues, huh?

Taylor: I'm sorry, but I'm very busy.

Grant: Well, you must be very proud.

Taylor: Proud of what?

Grant: Proud of the fact that John and Sharlene are back under the same roof. Hmm, you don't look to be too happy about that. Why is that?

Sharlene: John? John? Hi.

John: Good morning.

Sharlene: Good morning. Did you sleep all right on the sofa?

John: Yeah, yeah, just fine. You?

Sharlene: Actually I had kind of a restless night, really.

John: Baby keeping you awake?

Sharlene: Yeah, yeah, I think we got a night owl on our hands. I got kicked all night long.

John: Well, you know what they say, if the kids aren't ready to go to bed when you are, you got a fight on your hands.

Sharlene: Well, I'll tell you, I'm already dreading the fights about curfew. This is strange, isn't it?

John: What?

Sharlene: Having you as a roommate.

John: Well, Sharlene, I don't plan to be just a roommate for much longer.

Felicia: Sam.

Sam: Hey.

Felicia: Thank God you're back.

Sam: Felicia.

Felicia: Hi, Olivia.

Sam: How are you?

Felicia: I'm fine. The question is, how are you?

Sam: Never better.

Felicia: And the trip? I mean, what happened?

Sam: Well, we went down to Santo Domingo and we found Evan and Amanda. They were planning on getting married just like we thought.

Felicia: But they didn't, did they?

Sam: No, we got Amanda to listen in time.

Felicia: And she believed you?

Sam: Yeah. It took some doing, but eventually she did.

Felicia: Oh, honey, I'm so happy for you.

Sam: Yeah.

Felicia: And Evan, I mean, did he give you any trouble?

Sam: You mean did I have to physically abuse him? No.

Olivia: Sam handled the whole thing brilliantly.

Sam: I kept my cool, and he basically lost his. But Amanda knows what he is now. That's what's important.

Felicia: That's great. Mitch will be very thrilled that everything turned out so well.

Sam: Are you ok now? You seem a little preoccupied.

Felicia: No, no, I'm fine.

Sam: You're sure?

Felicia: Yeah.

Sam: Ok.

Felicia: I was just thinking about Amanda. I mean, she must be devastated.

Olivia: Amanda deserves to be devastated.

Paulina: Amanda, you're back. I'm dying to hear about your trip. Was it romantic? Amanda?

Evan's been calling every two minutes.

Amanda: I don't want to talk to him.

Paulina: Oh, Amanda, what happened? What's the matter?

Amanda: I've ruined my life.

Cass: Frankie, before I go, do you have Anthony's estimate for the roof?

Frankie: Hmm, yeah. [Yawns]

Cass: Thanks.

Frankie: You're welcome.

Cass: Oh, this seems reasonable. Frankie?

Frankie: Hmm?

Cass: You just don't seem like your usual sparkly self this morning.

Frankie: Yeah, well, I've been having trouble sleeping. I keep hearing noises.

Cass: Noises?

Frankie: From the cellar.

Cass: Maybe a stray got inside. I could have a look.

Frankie: No, I've already been down there.

Cass: No cat?

Frankie: Never was a cat. I sense a human quality to all of this.

Cass: What?

Frankie: Well, there were footsteps, and there may even have been some music.

Cass: Music?

Frankie: Yeah. You know, at first I thought maybe Anthony was quietly sneaking in a little overtime, you know?

Cass: A remote possibility at that.

Frankie: Yeah, but his tools have not been touched, and the cellar is exactly as we left it.

Cass: Are you sure you didn't dream all of this?

Frankie: Absolutely.

Cass: Thanks.

Frankie: You know, there is another explanation for all this. Some guests don't leave signs of their visits.

Cass: Yeah, right. I think I'll be going now. I'm officially leaving the twilight zone.

Frankie: Cass, think about it.

Cass: Frankie, you did not hear a ghost.

Frankie: Do you remember when we first moved in here, all of the weird stuff that happened -- the wind and the music?

Cass: That was completely different. Whatever was in here when we moved in was not keeping you awake at night.

Frankie: Now, I've thought about that. I have. I think that maybe the spirits are trying to tell me something, you know, warn me.

Cass: Yeah, to go back to bed.

Frankie: That's a pretty decent idea. Would you care to continue this conversation upstairs? Huh?

Cass: I'd love to.

Frankie: Yeah?

Cass: But I can't. I really can't. I need time to prepare for this meeting with R.J. Riley.

Frankie: R.J. Riley?

Cass: Yeah.

Frankie: You finally hooked R.J. Riley?

Cass: He wanted the best, didn't he?

Frankie: Yeah, and he got it. That's great. Hey, and he's going to be needing an investigator on that case.

Cass: Right.

Frankie: So we'll be working together again?

Cass: Wrong.

Frankie: What?

Cass: I will be using a private investigator, but it won't be you.

Sam: Needless to say, Olivia is a little bit biased.

Olivia: Well, Amanda put Sam through hell.

Felicia: I know. I understand that.

Olivia: Well, the important thing is that now he can put an end to all the lies Evan's been spreading about him.

Sam: And I couldn't have done it without the two of you.

Felicia: Well, we wanted to, didn't we, Olivia?

Olivia: Yes, we did, very much.

Felicia: You know what?

Sam: Hmm?

Felicia: I think we should celebrate.

Sam: I thought we were.

Felicia: Well, I mean in a much bigger kind of way. Why don't we meet in, well, the end of the week and we'll have sort of a believers' dinner? All the people who never doubted you for a second will be invited.

Sam: Ah, yes. A small crowd it will be.

Felicia: Well, we'll be there, won't we, Olivia?

Olivia: Yes, we will.

Sam: Felicia, listen, you know, I cannot thank you enough for believing me and helping me out.

Felicia: Honey, you helped me, too. That little scam we did with Bill Levin -- it gave me all sorts of good ideas for my next book.

Sam: Hey, great, I'll take it.

Felicia: Why don't you go out on the terrace, you two, and take in the view, and I'll come out in a few minutes and we'll toast or something.

Sam: Sounds great.

Felicia: Ok.

Sam: Olivia, shall we?

Olivia: Fine.

Sam: Let's do it.

Felicia: Hi.

Lucas: Hi, I got your message. You wanted to talk to me?

Felicia: Yeah. I wanted to let you know that I'm going out of town in a couple of days.

Lucas: Oh, where -- oh, you're going to Africa to see Mitch?

Felicia: Yes.

Lucas: He must be spending all his free time sprucing up the tent.

Felicia: He knows I'm coming. He doesn't know that I already have my ticket. I'm going to surprise him.

Lucas: Oh, lucky Mitch.

Felicia: Luke.

Lucas: What about me?

Felicia: I didn't tell you this so we could have an argument about it.

Lucas: That's tough, because that's exactly what we're going to have.

Felicia: I'm going to go back --

Lucas: No, you're going nowhere until we have a conversation in private.

Sam: It's amazing, isn't it?

Olivia: What?

Sam: Just a few months ago, I never wanted to see this town again. I felt like such a stranger, you know?

Olivia: Yeah, and I took advantage of that.

Sam: Olivia, come on.

Olivia: If it wasn't for my stupidity, Sam, you would've nailed Evan a long time before he took Amanda to Santo Domingo.

Sam: It doesn't matter, ok?

Olivia: It does matter.

Sam: Look, Olivia, you came forward and you told the truth. You believed in me. Amanda -- she didn't believe in me. You did. You gave me a chance to be here again. I mean, if it wasn't for you, I'd probably still be out there trying to prove my innocence. I will always be grateful for you for that, always.

Amanda: So I got on the next plane home, alone.

Paulina: So Sam never tried to hurt you?

Amanda: Never. It was all Evan.

Paulina: That's crazy. Well, he must have loved you very much.

Amanda: He wanted me very much. There's a world of difference between the two. I was just too much of a fool to see it.

Paulina: No, you weren't a fool, Amanda.

Amanda: I believed Evan instead of my own husband. I destroyed my marriage. I sent the father of my child -- I let -- I allowed him to be run out of town.

Paulina: I know how hard this must be for you.

Amanda: How would you know anything? You never made a fool of yourself over a manipulative man like Evan.

Paulina: Well, as a matter of fact, I have. I know when you trust someone and they take advantage of that trust, it makes you feel so alone. But you have to remember that we've all been through it, and it stinks. I know.

Amanda: When I think of how I let him play with my daughter and how I let him touch me, it just makes me want to die.

Paulina: Amanda, stop it. Don't beat yourself up about this. You're not perfect. You made a mistake, it happens.

Amanda: That's putting it mildly. I was ready to spend the rest of my life with that man. That's a little bit more than just a mistake.

Paulina: You wanted to believe in him. That's not a crime.

Amanda: I'm never going to make that mistake again.

[Doorbell rings]

[Pounding on door]

Evan: Amanda! I know you're in there! Open up! Come on!

John: Sharlene, I'm not going to push you, but I'm not going to hide my feelings either. I want us back the way we were in every way.

Sharlene: I know you do, John. I do, too.

John: I'm not going to live like we did before. You've got to be free of Grant.

Sharlene: John, it always gets back to Grant, doesn't it? It just --

John: Only if you let it.

Sharlene: What is this?

John: Don't change the subject, Sharlene.

Sharlene: No, I'm not. You're reading this because of what happened last night, aren't you?

John: No, I just picked it up.

Sharlene: All right, did it explain how you could walk without pain?

John: No, no, it doesn't, not really.

Sharlene: Try again. Try now.

John: You think that this is all in my head, don't you?

Sharlene: Well, John, the one thing I have learned in the last few months is how the mind affects the body. Now, isn't it possible that your feelings for Vietnam could have affected your leg?

John: Thank you very much for the consultation, doctor.

Sharlene: You're right, I don't know what I'm talking about, but a therapist might. I mean, you could ask Taylor. Maybe she could recommend someone.

John: Sharlene, listen to me, I have no intention of dragging up the past. I wish we could both forget the damn past.

Sharlene: Well, I'm sure -- oh, I'm sure you do.

John: Sweetheart, I'm sorry.

Sharlene: No, I'm -- that's ok. You know, I have -- I have a problem facing the changes that I'm going through, too, believe it or not. But you taught me about facing those problems.

John: Me and my big mouth. What's wrong with repression?

Sharlene: I got to go to work. I got to get -- I'm going to be late. Listen, please, just think about what I said.

Taylor: Would you please bring me back this chart after you pick up the results?

Nurse: Mm-hmm.

Taylor: Thanks.

Grant: Taylor.

Taylor: Don't you have an election to win?

Grant: Pretty revealing look you had on your face a short time ago.

Taylor: I'm sure I don't know what you mean.

Grant: When I told you about John and Sharlene being back together again.

Taylor: Congressman --

Grant: You didn't know that, did you?

Taylor: I didn't even know John was back in town.

Grant: So it was not a move that was done with your blessing, huh?

Taylor: I'm Sharlene's doctor, I'm not her mother. I don't sign off on every one of her life's decisions.

Grant: So this one was not a happy one, right?

Taylor: Grant, I will not now or ever discuss my patient with you.

Grant: We're not talking about your patient.

Taylor: Of course we are.

Grant: We're talking about your patient's handsome husband. I mean, you've spent a lot of time with him, haven't you?

Taylor: On a professional basis.

Grant: And John is a very charismatic man, wouldn't you say?

Taylor: He's an excellent physician.

Grant: It must be difficult, though, for you. I mean, you work with somebody and you know all their problems at home, and now that he's back with Sharlene, I mean, it's probably very difficult for him to spend professional time with you.

Taylor: That's it, Grant. What John does with his time is up to John.

Grant: Of course, Taylor, of course. But you have spent a lot of time with him, wouldn't you say?

Taylor: I'm sorry, but I'm running late.

Grant: Running away from the truth, is that it?

[Pounding on door]

Evan: Amanda! Amanda, I know you're in there! Open the door!

Paulina: Just go upstairs. I'll take care of it.

Evan: I want to talk to you!


Paulina: Shh.

Evan: Amanda! Where is Amanda?

Paulina: Evan.

Evan: I know she's here.

Paulina: She doesn't want to see you.

Evan: Yeah, well, I need to talk to her.

Paulina: Get lost, Evan.

Evan: Don't you tell me what to do, ok?

Paulina: You take one more foot in this house and I will call the police. I swear I will.

Evan: Yeah.

Paulina: And I don't think you need that right now.

Evan: Well, I just need a few minutes with her and she'll understand.

Paulina: You see now, that's the problem -- she does understand now.

Evan: I don't have time to sit here and chat with you. So I'm going to go.

Paulina: Great.

Evan: But I'll be back.

Paulina: Evan?

Evan: What? What, Paulina?

Paulina: I thought you loved Amanda. How -- how could you do this to her?

Evan: Haven't you ever done the wrong thing for the right reason?

Cass: What happened to your sesame rice cakes?

Frankie: When I'm depressed, I slip. I happen to be very depressed.

Cass: Frankie, you -- you -- you're just making too big a deal out of all of this.

Frankie: How could you do this, Cass? How could you give this case to somebody else? We're a team.

Cass: Do you know what this job entails?

Frankie: Yes, Riley is having gangs vandalizing his stores.

Cass: Right. You said it -- gangs. Not gangs of Bridge Club Ladies, gangs of knife-wielding punks.

Frankie: And he needs an investigator to take photos of these bozos being caught in the act. This job is vintage Frame.

Cass: This job is going to someone else.

Frankie: But it is absolutely perfectly suited to my abilities. Why won't you give it to me?

Cass: I am not having you tail some gang.

Frankie: That is what I do. I'm a detective.

Cass: You're also my wife.

Frankie: Aha! I knew it. Why I didn't get this job -- because we're married

Cass: No, no, that's ridiculous.

Frankie: Cass, marrying you did not turn me into a China doll.

Cass: I'm not taking any chances. After the kidnapping, I made a vow to myself that I would never allow you to be put in danger again.

Frankie: Oh, so what are you going to do, lock me in my room?

Cass: I meant it, Frankie.

Frankie: It is not your decision to make.

Cass: I made it anyway.

Frankie: Oh, you're a chauvinist jerk!

Cass: And you're a pig-headed person!

Frankie: Uh-uh, uh-uh. No, sex is not an answer to marital disputes.

Cass: Says who? Says the tarot?

Frankie: "Cosmo."

Cass: What is going on here? You're eating cookies. You're reading women's magazines. You're turning into June Cleaver on me here.

And I always was turned on by that little blue gingham n June used to wear.

Frankie: I'm really very angry at you.

Cass: Well, I am furious with you.

Frankie: Yeah. What do you say to a temporary truce, ok?

Cass: I say where's your apron?

Frankie: I say let's go get it.

Cass: We'll do it together?

Frankie: Yeah.

Cass: Ok.

Felicia: Luke.

Lucas: I don't want you going to Africa.

Felicia: You have nothing to say about it.

Lucas: Mitch is going to try and keep you there.

Felicia: Whatever Mitch does is none of your business.

Lucas: Yes, but what you do is. I know you, Fanny. You're going to feel sorry for him, and then you're going to say, hey, Nairobi isn't such a bad place to live. You're going to end up writing travel brochures about the bush to preserve a marriage you shouldn't be in.

Felicia: I would never stay with Mitch because I felt sorry for him.

Lucas: Sure you would.

Felicia: Well, thank you for the vote of confidence.

Lucas: If you're confused or feeling guilty, who knows what you'll do.

Felicia: I know my own mind.

Lucas: Listen, no, you don't. You didn't -- when I first got to Bay City, you wanted to be with me, but you denied it because of Mitch.

Felicia: Of course I did. I had to. I'm married.

Lucas: I know. And then we slept together. Then you saw the real truth. You want to be with me, Fanny. Going to Africa will just confuse things.

Felicia: Oh, Luke. Listen to me, ok? I can't decide anything until I talk to him again. I have to go. If I'm going to make any kind of decision at all, I have to. I -- I don't know what else to do.

Lucas: Ok. When are you coming back?

Felicia: I don't know. I'm not sure. I -- I left the ticket open.

Lucas: If you're not back in a week, I'm coming after you.

Felicia: If I'm not back in a week, you'll have your answer.

Sharlene: Evan, hi. How you doing?

Evan: Hey, listen, I really need to talk to somebody that's on my side.

Sharlene: On your side? Why, what's happened?

Evan: Well, some things have happened. I've lost Amanda.

Sharlene: Oh, no, I'm sorry.

Evan: Well, just some things happened, that's all.

Sharlene: What things?

Evan: Well, some -- I made some mistakes in the past. I -- I did it because I loved her, you see.

Sharlene: Evan, just wait a second. Just be straight with me, ok? What exactly happened? What things?

Evan: The elevator. You know, that elevator -- I faked the elevator accident.

Sharlene: You faked it? You nearly died.

Evan: Well, Sam wasn't trying to kill me. I fell.

Sharlene: That doesn't make sense, Evan. Sam was threatening you and Amanda, wasn't he?

Did Sam ever threaten Amanda? Evan?

Evan: Uh-uh. No.

Sharlene: So you set him up just like he said you did?

Evan: Well, she would never leave him, you see.

Sharlene: Oh, Evan.

Evan: No, she would never make the break without my help.

Sharlene: You made Sam out to sound like he was some sort of dangerous maniac.

Evan: But -- but you -- you understand that, don't you? Don't you see that --

Sharlene: No, no, Evan, I don't see that. I don't -- I don't see how you could deliberately lie. I don't see how you could deliberately break up a marriage.

Evan: Sharlene, what about all those things you did to Dr. John just to be with Grant?

Sam: You got back pretty fast, huh, Evan?

Evan: What do you want?

Sam: I think we need to talk about your future.

[Phone rings]

Sam's voice: Hello.

Amanda: Sam --

Sam's voice: I'm not home at the moment. If you could leave your name and number, I will call you back. Thank you.

[Answering machine beeps]

Amanda: Sam, it's Amanda. I know that you're furious with me right now. And I don't blame you. Can you please call me back? I -- I have to talk to you. I'm sorry.

Paulina: Hey, Amanda, why don't I have Helen make you up something to eat?

Amanda: No, thanks, Paulina, I don't want anything to eat. I just want to talk to Sam.

Paulina: He's not home.

Amanda: Maybe he's just not picking up so he doesn't have to speak to me.

Paulina: Alli will be up soon.

Amanda: I have to make him forgive me. I'll get him to sit down and listen to me.

Paulina: How are you going to do that?

Amanda: I don't know. There's got to be a way. I'll find it.

Evan: Sam, I am talking to Sharlene.

Sharlene: No, you're not. I've got to get back to work. I'm sure that the two of you have a lot to talk about. Excuse me, Sam.

Evan: Sharlene --

Sam: It's not nice, is it -- having people you care about turn their back on you. I'm glad you had the opportunity to see what that feels like though.

Evan: Hey, I'm leaving.

Sam: No, I don't think so. I think we need to talk about Evan Bates and the law.

Evan: Look, you've got Amanda. Isn't that enough?

Sam: No. You remember your pal Bill Levin, don't you? You see, Bill Levin doesn't have too many nice things to say about you, and neither do I.

Evan: So?

Sam: So, in carrying out your vendetta Evan, you compiled quite a list of felonies. We've got fraud, misrepresentation, concealing material evidence.

Evan: No, it's not like that.

Sam: Oh, yes, it is, Evan, and with Bill Levin's testimony and mine and Amanda's -- yes, she will testify, I think you know that -- you're looking at some real serious time, pal. But this can all be avoided.

Evan: How?

Sam: I'll cut you the same deal you cut me a few months ago. I don't press charges if you leave town.

Evan: When?

Sam: You leave town today.

Evan: Amanda loved me, you know? She believed in me. You were out of town, she was in my arms in an hour.

Sam: That's Amanda's mistake. It's not mine.

Evan: Don't you see? She wanted me. She was with me. I had your wife. Can you live with that? Can you?

Sam: Leave today or I see you rot in jail.

Felicia: Sam, come on. Come with me.

Sam: Yeah, I'm finished here.

[Phone rings]

Sharlene: Hello, Tops.

Grant: Sharlene, this is Grant.

Sharlene: Grant, I can't talk right now.

Grant: Look, I have to see you now.

Sharlene: No.

Grant: Look, Sharlene, I -- I don't mean in private. I'm at my campaign headquarters and I just need to see you just for, like, five minutes.

Sharlene: Grant, I can't run to you every time you call.

Grant: Look, I have something to tell you, something to say to you that affects your life as well as John's.

Sharlene: All right, but just for a few minutes. I'll be there.

Cass: I didn't know you could do that with chocolate chips.

Frankie: Yeah. Well, that doesn't change the fact that we are in the middle of a very important issue here. We have got to resolve this conflict, Cass.

Cass: Oh, gosh, running late.

Frankie: Don't you dare pull that on me.

Cass: Got to run.

Frankie: We really have to talk about this, Cass.

Cass: Later. I love you.

Frankie: Cass, really, I want to talk about this.

Cass: Thanks for everything. Thanks for the chocolate chips.

Frankie: Hey.

Cass: What are you doing here?

Lucas: Isn't it a little late to be leaving for the office?

Cass: Don't change the subject. I know what you and Frankie did the other day, how you entrapped Felicia.

Lucas: We didn't trap anyone.

Cass: I don't want you here.

Felicia: Cass.

Lucas: I didn't come to see you. I have a business opportunity for Frankie.

Cass: Well, forget it.

Frankie: Cass.

Cass: You are not --

Frankie: I happen to have a lot of free time on my hands now, thanks to you, so I would like to hear what Lucas has to say.

Cass: No, you're not going to --

Frankie: Cass, I have a right to my clients, too. Now aren't you a little late for R.J. Riley?

Cass: We're going to talk about this. Tonight.

Frankie: I'm --

Lucas: I'm sorry, Frankie. I didn't want to start any trouble.

Frankie: Oh, believe me, it's not you, ok? So what's this about a job?

Lucas: There isn't any job. I just did that to get Cass off my back.

Frankie: Lucas --

Lucas: I just wanted to talk to you, Frankie.

Frankie: About Felicia?

Lucas: Yes. She's going to Africa.

Frankie: Well, of course she is. She has to talk to Mitch.

Lucas: I don't know if she's going to come back.

Frankie: Oh, Lucas, you have to let her go, you know.

Lucas: Frankie, please --

Frankie: If she really loves you --

Lucas: I think you're about to give me that line about letting something go free so to see if it'll come back to you. Well, all I've been through today, I don't want any greeting card philosophy, please.

Frankie: Look, I would never do something like that, Lucas. Not exactly like that. Look, I don't think that you need advice. I think maybe you need some company. So why don't you stay here with me? We'll knock back a few really obnoxious cookies and --

Lucas: Frankie, I -- I need to --

Frankie: Ooh.

Lucas: What?

Frankie: Weird.

Lucas: Well, they look perfectly obnoxious to me. Frankie --

Frankie: I put out eight cookies. I was definitely having an eight-cookie crisis. I ate one, and now there's only three left.

Lucas: Well, maybe Cass took a few on the way --

Frankie: No, he was with me the whole time. We were...busy. Hmm. Something is definitely going on here. Something very weird.

John: Well, Taylor, hello.

Taylor: May I come in?

John: Well, certainly. Listen, Sharlene's not here. She's at work. Were you supposed to have a session?

Taylor: No, I came to see you. I heard you were back in town.

John: Yet you came here instead of the boat.

Taylor: I also heard you had moved back in.

John: Ah. Let me guess, Grant?

Taylor: He was at the hospital this morning.

John: What did he have to say?

Taylor: Nothing important. It's just that as Sharlene's analyst, I thought I should make sure he had his facts straight.

John: In this case, it seems he does.

Taylor: So this decision -- did that come from Sharlene?

John: No, no, it was my decision.

Taylor: Uh-huh. How did she respond?

John: Well, we're going through an adjustment period now. Why?

Taylor: Well, I just -- I'm seeing that she's facing a lot of different pressures.

John: You don't approve?

Taylor: It's not a question of approval.

John: Come on, Taylor, I thought you, of all people, would understand and support me in this. You know how difficult it was for me to move out.

Taylor: I did -- I do, John. It's just that Sharlene is going through a lot of big changes, and I could see that this could create a lot --

John: Hold it, hold it, Taylor. Come on, I'm a doctor, too. I can spit out that medical jargon with the best of them. But I'm talking about saving my marriage. I did what I thought was best.

Taylor: Of course.

John: And we're not doing anything to put too much stress her.

Taylor: All right, John. Maybe I should just go.

John, just one more thing, as your friend, I can see that you're doing everything possible to be as close as you can to Sharlene.

John: Of course I am. She's my wife.

Taylor: Give a little thought to how you might feel if she's not able to respond in quite the same way.

Grant: Thank you for coming.

Sharlene: Yeah, where is everybody?

Grant: Out.

Sharlene: But the election's only a few weeks away.

Grant: Well, a lot of the staff is out doing some of the stuff that they have to do.

Sharlene: Well, you don't seem very concerned.

Grant: Frankly, I'm not.

Sharlene: Why?

Grant: Well, I find it hard to concentrate on the campaign ever since I've found out that John moved back to the farm.

Sharlene: Grant --

Grant : That's ok. I mean you don't have to explain. I -- I really do understand.

Sharlene: Well, I'm not sure I do.

Grant: Well, I know that you and John are trying to give your marriage a second chance.

Sharlene: Yes, I want things to work out for John and me. I've -- I've never lied to you about that.

Grant: No, you haven't. You've always been very up-front about that situation, and I appreciate that. And that's why I want to do this for you right now.

Sharlene: Do what for me?

Grant: You and John are having a baby. You're trying to build a future. And I just don't want to cause any trouble.

Sharlene: What are you getting at?

Grant: I just -- I realized that -- that you and I are never going to be together.

Sharlene: Oh. When did you finally come to this realization?

Grant: I think I've probably known it for a long time. You know, I -- you know how much I love you and how much I hate to lose. But I think letting go of you is probably the best thing, looking back on my life, anyway.

Sharlene: Oh, it is?

Grant: Yeah. I should've realized that that little piece of happiness that I had with you would never last. I -- I wanted -- well, I've always been a man of duty, a man of service. Congressman Harrison, man of the people.

Sharlene: Yes, well, you've done a lot to help this country, Grant.

Grant: Well, Congressman Harrison has. Grant, hmm -- never knew much about life until you came along.

Sharlene: Grant, are you trying to --

Grant : You gave me a reprieve the night we met at the arcade. You showed me how to -- to live my life for myself.

Sharlene: And you have to keep doing that, Grant. You -- you must keep living for yourself.

Grant: I don't want to talk about that.

Sharlene: Well, I -- I would like to talk about that. What are --

Grant: No. No, you came here to hear me out, and now you have. And now you have to go. I don't -- I can't keep you here any longer.

Sharlene: No, Grant.

Grant: Please. Please don't make this any harder for me than it already is.

Sharlene: Well, fine, could I -- could I use the phone? I need to call Felicia.

Grant: Yeah. Sharlene? Thank you. Thank you for everything.

Evan's voice: I had -- I had to figure out a plan, see, to get Sam out of our lives forever. That's what you wanted. You see, I did it for you, I did it for us, so that we could -- we could spend our whole lives together. You know, these last few months have been the best months of my life. I have never known anything more wonderful than loving you.

Amanda's voice: Wonderful? My life has been hell, Evan. And Alli. You did this to her? You destroyed her life.

Evan's voice: Amanda, I love Alli. You see, all this is going to --

Amanda: I hate you.

Evan: It's going to blow over and you're going to thank me.

Amanda: I hate you.

Evan: No, you're going to thank me one day.

Amanda: I hate you!

Evan: Amanda?

Sharlene: Sure, I can pick that up. Yeah, just tell me where I go. How many -- where do I go to pick it up?

Grant: Oh, Martin --

Martin: I know you're anxious about that position paper on Iraq.

Grant: No, no, forget that for now, ok? Listen, I want you to set up a press conference, all right?

Martin: No sweat.

Grant: As soon as possible. I don't want anybody to know about it ahead of time, especially Mrs. Hudson, because what I have to say could upset her, and I have to avoid that at all costs, all right?

Martin: Of course. But what are you planning on saying?

Grant: I'm going to withdraw from the race. And please don't make any speeches about the future, because I don't care about the future anymore.

Felicia: Sam?

Sam: Hmm, thank you, Felicia.

Felicia: Don't mention it.

Olivia: My, my, aren't we getting important, making phone calls right from the table now.

Sam: All right, quit busting my chops, all right? The pay phones out. That's why the cordless phone was brought here.

Olivia: And this couldn't wait?

Sam: I gave Caroline a call earlier this morning. I wanted to check my machine, that's all, all right? Now, let me do it.

Olivia: You're going to start painting again?

Sam: You better believe I am.

Olivia: Your work's going to take right off now, I just know it.

Sam: I hope so.

Olivia: Mmm.

[Answering machine beeps]

Amanda's voice: Sam, it's Amanda. I know you're furious with me.

Olivia: Someone there? Who was that?

Sam: No one, it was no one at all.

Amanda: Don't.

Evan: I'm not here to hurt you, ok? I just came to say goodbye, tell you that I'm leaving town.

Amanda: Well, I guess running away beats jail.

Evan: Oh, I'm not running away. There's no future for me here. I've lost you.

Amanda: Oh, stop it. Stop lying.

Evan: Amanda, after today, I will be out of your life.

Amanda: You should've been out of my life a long time ago. You should've never been in my life.

Evan: But you let me in because you wanted me there.

Amanda: You made sure I did let you in.

Evan: It's funny -- I knew it would end this way. I knew that you and I would never end up together.

Amanda: It might have been different... if you'd been honest, if you'd left it to fate.

Evan: Fate? I don't trust fate. I'm a realist. I go after what I want.

Amanda: So you twist things around to make it your way? Oh, go ahead, feel sorry for yourself. Nobody else will.

Evan: I don't feel sorry for me. I feel sorry for you. You know why? Because you've got to go back to yourself. Yes, I lied to you, because I wanted you more than anything in my whole life. And you believed me because you wanted me. And we fell in love.

Amanda: No, it wasn't love. This was never love. You never tried to show me who you really were. Instead, you made me believe something horrible about Sam just to get him out of my life. And I fell for it. There was never an honest emotion between us. Not one. Whatever we had, it's over.

Evan: Uh-uh. We loved each other. I still love you. And you believed in me, because I was freedom from your way of life. And you will never be able to forget me for that.

Amanda: I'll never be able to forgive you, not ever. When I lost Sam, I lost everything. I didn't realize that until now. But what I love more than anything else in the world is gone, and I don't think I can ever get it back. I have to live with that. So do you. Goodbye, Evan.

Evan: Amanda? I'll be seeing you at night in your dreams. I'll be there for the rest of your life.
