Lucas: Let me take your coat.
Amanda: What for? I'm not staying.
Lucas: You're not going anywhere until you sober up.
Amanda: What, you think I'm drunk?
Lucas: I know you are. Otherwise, you wouldn't have acted that way at Felicia's. You're not fooling anybody, Amanda.
Amanda: How dare you say that to me.
Lucas: It's true.
Amanda: I'm calling a cab.
Lucas: No, you're not. I know how you feel.
Amanda: You don't know anything. You barely know me.
Lucas: You think you're the first person this ever happened to? I know because I've been there myself.
Ryan: Vicky, tell me what's wrong.
Vicky: It's nothing, really. It's just that Jamie and Marley have decided to have a late night.
Ryan: That bothers you?
Vicky: Well, I don't think she should be exhausted tomorrow. I think she should walk into the courtroom looking her best.
Ryan: You're right.
Vicky: I doubt she would sleep that much anyway tonight.
Ryan: How about you? How are you sleeping these days?
Vicky: Like a log.
Ryan: That's right, I forgot. Heart of stone, right?
Vicky: Yeah, right.
Ryan: Vicky, I know that this is just as tough on you, maybe tougher. We should talk about the trial.
Vicky: No. I'm an expert on what happens in courtrooms. I think I hear Steven. Could you go check on him for me and, if he's crying, just bring him down?
Ryan: Yeah, sure.
Marley's voice: "Dear Vicky -- I have to leave town. I know how much this must hurt you, but I have no choice."
Vicky: This is -- this is crazy. This is something I would do.
Oh, please be there.
Vicky: No, don't be -- damn it, Marley, I have to talk to you.
Marley: What did you just say?
Jamie: That we should disappear.
Marley: I thought that's what you said.
Jamie: I've been thinking about it all day. Going away together, just the two of us.
Marley: Do you mean it? Would you really go?
Stacey: Hi. I called your office and they told me what time you were getting in.
Michael: What happened? Something wrong?
Stacey: No, no, nothing. No, I was just anxious. I wanted to know if you got anything more out of Jake's friend.
Michael: No, no, I got the same old song and dance.
Stacey: I thought maybe you would get something after I left. I thought maybe he would loosen up a little bit.
Michael: No, I got nothing new.
Stacey: Even after you told him that your daughter's life was on the line?
Michael: Stacey, I pulled out all the stops, but this guy is Jake's friend. He's not talking.
Stacey: Did you ask him about Paulina?
Michael: Yes, of course I did.
Stacey: And you got nothing? I can't believe it. What a waste.
Michael: Well, it wasn't completely a waste, to tell you the truth. The fact is, even though Patrick was very vague, I got a really good feeling about how Jake was operating this last year.
Stacey: What do you mean, "operating"? In his life? In his business? What?
Michael: No, he was up to something shady. I also found out that he was not even trying to be faithful to Marley. You know, she was so trusting.
Stacey: Wait, why are you saying this? Is this -- did he let something slip, or what?
Michael: No, no. To tell you the truth, he was so careful about what he said, that's what made me suspicious.
Stacey: So what exactly are you going on?
Michael: I'm going on nothing but a gut feeling.
Stacey: Ok, so tell me more.
Michael: Paulina may have been the only woman who admits to being involved with Jake, but I am sure that there were other women. Poor Marley.
Stacey: I'm sorry.
Michael: I got to tell you, I am so glad that he is out of her life. When I think of that animal messing with any member of my family, it just makes me crazy.
Bridget: And when -- when it was Victoria, I would have to rock her half the night.
Vicky: You're not telling him baby stories about me?
Bridget: He asked me.
Ryan: You calling somebody?
Vicky: No. How is Steven?
Ryan: Out like a light.
Bridget: You couldn't have heard him cry, dear. He was right there, the same place he was when I tucked him in.
Vicky: Oh. I -- I guess I'm just a little jumpy.
Ryan: Well, you're allowed. You two want to play some poker?
Ryan: Yeah, it'll take your mind off some things.
Vicky: Don't you have to go home?
Ryan: Not when you're feeling like this.
Bridget: Oh, well, shall I get the cards?
Vicky: No, really, I couldn't concentrate on anything. So maybe you should just --
Ryan: Stick around.
Vicky: You're sure you don't mind?
Ryan: No, not at all. I'll stay and wait for Marley to come back. She could be out quite late, right?
Vicky: Yeah. Maybe you could distract me.
Ryan: If you give me half a chance.
Vicky: You're on. Um -- you know what I'm in the mood for?
Vicky: Yeah, you don't like it?
Ryan: No, I like it. That's not it.
Vicky: What is it?
Ryan: Well, somehow, that's the last thing I expected to hear.
Vicky: Oh, I'm just full of surprises. You could check out the refrigerator. I know there's a quart in there.
Bridget: You drank the last of it last night.
Vicky: I did?
Vicky: Oh, and that makes me even more in the mood for it. Would you mind going out and getting some for us?
Bridget: Oh, I'll go out and get it, dear.
Vicky: No, no, it's too late for you to go.
Bridget: No, it's not.
Vicky: And besides, I want you here because if Steven wakes up, he'll sense that I'm upset and then he'll get all cranky.
Ryan: No problem, I'll get it. Anything else?
Vicky: No. Here's your coat. This is really -- this is really sweet of you, thank you.
Ryan: I'll make this quick.
Vicky: All right.
Bridget: Who are you calling?
Vicky: Oh, it's still busy. If Marley calls, find out where she is. I will try to be back before Ryan gets back.
Bridget: But what if you're not back?
Vicky: Then just tell him -- don't tell him what happened with Marley. Just distract him. Tell him I figured out something else that I want.
Bridget: Victoria, do you want me to lie to him?
Vicky: No. Well, not really.
Bridget: What's going on? Where are you going?
Vicky: I have to find Marley before it's too late.
Marley: Where would we go?
Jamie: Anywhere. I don't care, as long as we're together.
Marley: That's how I feel.
Jamie: I wish we could leave tonight, just get on a plane and fly till morning.
Marley: It's a wonderful dream, isn't it?
Jamie: Forget the trial, forget Jake, forget everyone except you, me, and Steven.
Marley: I want it to happen.
Jamie: Someday it will happen, for real -- after the trial is over.
Marley: Jamie, you sound so sure.
Jamie: Marley, what is it?
Marley: For a moment I thought it was possible. But I was forgetting your responsibilities to your son and your patients.
Jamie: It will happen, and soon. I'll take you back to Nice.
Marley: You will?
Jamie: And we're going to do all the things we didn't do the first time.
Marley: Sounds too good to be true.
Jamie: We'll make it true, all of it.
Marley: It's late. I have to go.
Jamie: Let me drive you home.
Marley: I have my car, remember?
Jamie: Then I'll follow you.
Marley: I think we should say goodbye here. I need some time alone.
Jamie: I understand.
Marley: You always do. Oh. Thank you for my beautiful bracelet. When I wear it, I'll always feel like I have a part of you with me.
Jamie: Good. Wear it always.
Marley: I will.
Jamie: You know, I don't want to let you out of my sight. When you leave, it's almost as if I won't see you again.
Marley: Don't say that. We love each other, no matter where we are.
Jamie: I know.
Marley: And nobody's going to change that and nobody can take that away from us. And we always have our wonderful, beautiful memories.
Jamie: And we'll have our future.
Jamie: You're saying all this about the trial because it starts tomorrow. Marley, it will be over before you know it. And we'll still love each other, and we'll have the rest of our lives to be together.
Marley: I do love you.
Felicia: Hey, hi.
Frankie: I'm so sorry.
Cass: Sorry we weren't here earlier.
Felicia: Better late than never.
Cass: It's been crazy, you know? Just crazy.
Felicia: I know, I know, I know what kept you. Uh -- yeah, can you -- yeah, good.
Frankie: Hey, Felicia, how was the party?
Felicia: Oh, it was fine. Iris wasn't here, so that was a plus.
Cass: Where is Iris, anyway?
Felicia: I don't know, on a vacation, I think. So, listen, how is Marley's case going? Any breakthroughs?
Felicia: Ugh. You know what, that's been going on all night. I'm going to take it in the bedroom, all right?
Cass: Don't rush, because we have some catching up to do.
Felicia: Listen, if you're hungry there's something in the fridge, so help yourselves, all right?
Frankie: Are you hungry?
Cass: No. Let's go over with what happened with Donna again.
Frankie: You heard her, she was furious with us because we even dared to question her.
Cass: Yeah, well, that's just Donna. You want?
Frankie: Yes, please.
Cass: Ok. Did you buy her explanation about why she had a blond wig in the closet?
Frankie: You mean that she rented it for a Halloween party, and that she and Michael didn't go because Jake was shot?
Cass: If she rented it, how come she hasn't returned it?
Frankie: Well, she claims that she forgot it was in her closet, that she had more important things on her mind.
Cass: What do you think?
Frankie: Do you mean, do I think that she put on that blond wig, went to Jake's loft, and shot him?
Cass: That about sums it up. How was she acting?
Frankie: You think she could have done it?
Cass: Donna can be pretty impossible, but she wouldn't let Marley go to prison just to save her own skin, at least I don't think she would.
Frankie: She wants to know if you're going to put her on the stand.
Cass: I can't answer that yet. And I can't keep speculating about who might have pulled the trigger. I'm going to court tomorrow and all I've got are theories.
Frankie: Yeah, none of those are going to get Marley off.
Cass: I hate to say it, but Vicky's plan to point the finger at her is all I've got.
Frankie: That's got real problems, Cass.
Cass: Like possibly trading one sister's conviction for another's? Yeah, well, I'm going to court. Do you realize that? I'm going to court tomorrow to select a jury, and that's how prepared I am.
Felicia: Hey, you know, knowing you, I'm sure everything is all set.
Cass: Yeah, yeah, right. There's just one or two loose ends to tie up.
Felicia: Ok. Come on, what's wrong?
Cass: For one thing, Iris has taken a powder and I may have to call her as a witness.
Felicia: You're kidding. Why?
Frankie: Jake claims that he was working for Iris, that she was his biggest account, and she denies it, completely downplays it.
Felicia: That's interesting, isn't it?
Cass: That's not the whole story, I'm sure.
Felicia: Well, I mean, Jake must have been getting his money from someplace, right?
Frankie: That's right.
Cass: If Iris was his source, and if they had a falling out, that would give her a motive.
Frankie: She also has a very weak alibi for where she was when Jake was shot. She could have gone to see him.
Felicia: Well, that certainly is reasonable doubt, isn't it?
Cass: I tried to get her subpoenaed, but I can't find her.
Felicia: You're kidding. I thought she was out skiing somewhere.
Cass: That's what she told Rachel and Amanda. But, no, she's not at the lodge.
Felicia: Well, you know, she -- she left my trial, too. Do you remember that?
Frankie: That's right, she did.
Cass: She didn't want Mac to find out that she was the one behind the Cory takeover attempt.
Frankie: Well, if she was hiding something then, maybe she's doing it again.
Cass: I sure wish I could find out.
Felicia: Well, that's not going to be easy. Iris covers her tracks even when she goes to the powder room.
Frankie: There is one person who might know what Iris is up to.
Lucas: Have a little coffee, you'll feel better.
Amanda: I don't need coffee, Lucas, and I don't need sympathy.
Lucas: You need both. But first you'll have the coffee, and after you sober up we'll talk.
Amanda: I'm not drunk, Lucas. I only had a couple of drinks at Felicia's.
Lucas: Oh, and how many did you have to get you there? Ok, don't tell me, I'll tell you. You came home from work, you were a little anxious about going to the party. You were lonely, so you had a drink, maybe two. Isn't that the way it starts? Coffee, black.
Amanda: What, you think I drink when I'm alone?
Lucas: You had one or two to calm you down, yeah.
Amanda: Why would I need to calm down?
Lucas: Because you were anxious about running into Sam and Olivia.
Amanda: I am not listening to this.
Lucas: Look, I'm not finished. You had a couple of drinks. You thought it might make you feel better, not make it hurt.
Amanda: That's a really nice scenario, Lucas. Do you want to tell me how you came up with that one?
Lucas: You don't make things like that up. You either know about it or you don't.
Amanda: Oh, ok, so you're an authority on this?
Lucas: That's right. I'm an authority. See, when I left Felicia and the baby, I gave up. I felt sorry for myself. So I went out and I hung out with a bunch of bums and I drank. And I felt sorry for myself.
Amanda: I'm not like you, Lucas. I'm fine.
Lucas: You really think you're hiding how you feel?
Amanda: I'm getting over him.
Lucas: You think about Sam day and night. You engineer accidental meetings to keep something going, am I right?
Amanda: It doesn't matter what I feel, Sam has moved on.
Lucas: Yeah, but you haven't. How long are you going to punish yourself for what you lost?
Amanda: I don't know what to do.
Lucas: Well, yelling at Felicia won't help, and neither will hating Olivia.
Amanda: Nothing is going to help.
Lucas: You don't know that. I got another chance. I have to thank Felicia for that. But I spent my life being angry. Don't blow your future because of mistakes you made in the past.
Amanda: But I miss him.
Lucas: I know you do. Look, I really do know how you feel.
Michael: If only Jake could talk. He's the one person who could tell us who shot him.
Stacey: Yeah, and he's in a coma.
Michael: Stacey, I would use tactics I haven't thought of in years to get people to tell me what they know about this.
Stacey: You mean, use them on Patrick?
Michael: I was the nice guy with Patrick. I'd like to use a different approach.
Stacey: Michael, threats aren't going to work.
Michael: Stacey, sometimes threats are the only things that do work.
Stacey: First of all, whoever did it is running scared.
Michael: Yeah, and we've been sitting back waiting for them to come out of the woodwork, and they haven't come out.
Stacey: So maybe once the trial starts, then they'll let down their guard.
Michael: And let the D.A. just tear my daughter's life apart in the meantime? Forget it.
Stacey: What choice do you have, Michael? Look, I know how frustrating it can be and how awful it feels not to be able to help your own child. I would have torn the world upside down if there was something I could have done to save my daughter. But there isn't anything you can do sometimes. Except maybe just hold her hand and -- I don't know -- try to be there for them.
Michael: I'm sorry, Stacey. I'm so sorry.
Stacey: You learn to accept it.
Michael: And you do?
Stacey: It hurts. But you do.
Michael: I got to tell you, I think that maybe that's why I find it easy to talk to you. You know, you've been through so much. You just seem to be accepting about things the way they are.
Stacey: That quality doesn't appeal to everybody, Derek in particular.
Michael: Well, I'm grateful for it. I need to talk to somebody who's straight with me, you know? Won't keep things from me.
Stacey: Michael, there's something I have to say to you.
Stacey: I'm really sorry that you lost Mikey.
Stacey: I followed my conscience on that.
Michael: I know. Stacey, you only were doing your job, and in the end it wasn't your call. I mean, it wasn't even the Judge's. It was -- it was really Donna's decision.
Stacey: It should've been both of your decision.
Michael: Well, I could have never have made that decision. I don't see how she could.
Stacey: You'll have to get her to explain that.
Michael: Right. She says she felt she had to put Mikey's welfare above our feelings. I know it was hard for her. I mean, I know that it killed her to make that choice. I can't lose another child, Stacey. I can't. I've got to find some way of clearing Marley. I've just got to, and I'll try anything. I swear I will try anything.
Stacey: What are you thinking about doing? Relax.
Michael: I'll tell you what I'm thinking of doing. I'm going to go back and have a little talk with Patrick. I think I gave up just a little too soon.
Stacey: Wear him down, you mean?
Michael: Let's just say try a little bit of a different approach. But I will need your help. Will you go with me?
Stacey: You want me to go back on that plane with you?
Michael: Yeah, just a little trip, come on.
Michael: Yeah. Look, I'll go talk to my pilot right now, all right? The plane is still in the hangar. It's still warm, all loaded up, we'll be ready to go in no time. Come on, Stacey, say you'll do it, say you'll do it, say you'll do it.
Stacey: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll do it, I'll be there.
Michael: Ok, great. This is terrific. Look, I won't be long, all right?
Stacey: How long would it take by train?
Lucas: Louis, you're here already. Thank you. My driver is waiting for you downstairs, any time you're ready.
Amanda: Thanks. Well, if he's waiting, I'd better get going.
Lucas: Shall I walk you down?
Amanda: No. No, I'm fine now.
Lucas: Are you sure?
Amanda: I can make it, yeah.
Amanda: I want to thank you for what you did tonight.
Lucas: I was just in the right place at the right time.
Amanda: You kept me from making a total fool of myself. Why did you bother?
Lucas: You want a reason? You remind me of your sister.
Amanda: I remind you of Iris?
Lucas: Yes. She's beautiful, charming, shrewd, and so defensive.
Amanda: I'm not sure I know what you're getting at.
Lucas: Iris is her own worst enemy.
Amanda: I can't argue with that.
Lucas: She thinks people will always think the worst of her, and she's usually right. She does those things because she's afraid. But she ends up driving everyone out of her life, even the people she loves the most.
Amanda: Like you.
Lucas: Yes. When Iris feels bad, she lashes out at everybody. Everything is somebody else's fault.
Amanda: Iris is convinced that Felicia ruined what you had.
Lucas: You see what I mean?
Amanda: Did she?
Lucas: No. Iris took care of that. I would have left Iris even if I hadn't known about Felicia.
Amanda: Iris really did care about you, Lucas.
Lucas: It's too late to change Iris. Iris doesn't believe in the power of the truth. She uses lies to control the lives of the people she's with.
Amanda: It didn't work with you.
Lucas: It doesn't work with anyone for very long.
Amanda: You don't have to tell me that.
Lucas: Maybe I do.
Amanda: I'm not like Iris.
Lucas: You have a choice. You can be like your mother. She gets what she wants. She's strong, but she thinks about people in the process. Or, like Iris, you can go the other way. It's up to you.
Amanda: I don't know what to say.
Lucas: You don't have to say anything. Just know that I'm on your side. I know it doesn't seem that way now.
Amanda: Your driver's waiting.
Lucas: Listen, listen -- think about it. Just call me any time. I have one strength. Nothing shocks me.
Amanda: Better get that phone.
Lucas: Yeah. Bye.
Amanda: Good night, Lucas.
Lucas: Good luck.
Cass: Hello, Lucas, it's Cass. I'm glad I caught you in.
Lucas: Cass, how are you doing?
Cass: Actually, I'm calling about Iris.
Lucas: What about Iris?
Cass: I need to know what she's up to.
Lucas: You're calling me?
Cass: It's important, and Felicia said you might be able to help.
Lucas: You're at Felicia's?
Cass: Yes, right. And Frankie and I are pretty sure that Iris is a lot more tangled up with Jake than she wants to admit.
Cass: You're the only person who can verify that.
Ryan: Think these will go with eggnog? Vicky? Vic?
Bridget: Uh -- um, she's out.
Ryan: What do you mean, out? She's supposed to be here.
Bridget: Oh, dear, I knew you'd be upset.
Ryan: Where is she?
Bridget: She didn't tell me. Maybe you'd better wait and ask her when she comes back.
Ryan: I'm asking you. You know something. Where did she go? I want to know.
Jamie: As long as it's within the normal range, let's just leave it the way it is. Right, I'm on beeper if you need me. Thanks a lot, Kim.
Vicky: Jamie, where is Marley?
Jamie: She left a little while ago.
Vicky: Where did she go?
Jamie: I assume she went back to your place. She's not there?
Vicky: No, not yet. What did she say when she left?
Jamie: She said she needed some time to think, that she needed to be alone. Why?
Vicky: Uh, no reason.
Jamie: Vicky, you wouldn't come charging in here for no reason.
Vicky: I just thought she would be here, all right?
Jamie: Why do you need to see her?
Vicky: I don't. It can wait.
Jamie: Look, tell me what's going on.
Vicky: Jamie, I'll explain later, all right?
Jamie: Vicky, if something's wrong, I want to know about it.
Vicky: Who said something was wrong?
Jamie: Tell me. Why are you looking for Marley?
