Stacey: You're going to have to talk to Cass. Tell him the truth. Thought you'd be the first one here.

Cass: Hey.

Stacey: Hi.

Cass: No point in hanging around the office.

Stacey: What time's your voir dire?

Cass: We're scheduled to go in an hour.

Stacey: Are you ready?

Cass: Yeah. I'm just not sure Marley is.

Stacey: You talked to her yesterday?

Cass: She was awfully quiet, almost resigned. I hope I don't have to put her up on the witness stand.

Stacey: Mm-hmm. What about Donna?

Cass: What do you mean?

Stacey: Oh, I mean, do you intend to put her up on the stand?

Cass: You found out, didn't you?

Stacey: About the blonde wig? Yeah.

Cass: How?

Stacey: Donna and I talked.

Cass: She told you?

Stacey: Do you really think Donna could have shot Jake?

Cass: Do you?

Matt: So, they're picking the people for the jury today, huh?

Jamie: Yeah, if any patients call, Dr. Barnes is covering for me.

Amanda: Right.

Jamie: Well, I guess that's everything.

Amanda: Are you sure you don't want one of us to go down with you?

Jamie: I'm not the one going through this. Marley is.

Amanda: She's very lucky to have you.

Jamie: Nothing, including this trial, is ever going to keep us apart again.

Bridget: Victoria --

Vicky: Marley's gone. She split. There's only one thing I can do.

Bridget: You cannot walk into that courtroom pretending to be Marley.

Vicky: Of course I can.

Bridget: If you're found out, it's only going to be worse for the two of you.

Vicky: So, the thing to do is not be found out.

Bridget: Well, I cannot let you do this.

Vicky: Who are you calling?

Bridget: I am going to call the police. I am going to tell them that Marley is missing.

Amanda: I just hate to see Jamie having such a hard time of it, you know.

Matt: Well, I know someone else who's having a hard time.

Amanda: Stop looking at me like that, Matt.

Matt: Oh, you can worry about Jamie, but I can't worry about you, is that it?

Amanda: I'm ok. I'm fine.

Matt: You weren't fine at Felicia's party last night.

Amanda: That was last night.

Matt: You left kind of early.

Amanda: I didn't see any reason in staying.

Matt: And you didn't get back here till very late.

Amanda: What, are you keeping tabs on me now?

Matt: Well, where were you?

Amanda: Actually, Lucas and I got to talking and he suggested that we go out for coffee.

Matt: Since when are you and Lucas friends?

Amanda: I work with him.

Matt: It doesn't mean you have to be friends with him.

Amanda: He's very nice. He made me feel better.

Matt: No kidding.

Amanda: I'm going to continue to feel better, and so I am leaving right now at this very minute.

Matt: What's the rush?

Amanda: Sam is coming to pick up Alli. And I know he's going to bring Olivia with him and who wants to be here for that, right?

Matt: No, where are you going?

Amanda: I don't know. Want to come?

Matt: Yeah, I do.

Amanda: Really, you will?

Matt: I will; there's nothing for me here, nothing, you know?

Amanda: Matthew, you are really the best brother.

Matt: I know. I'm a prince.

Amanda: Really. You're really a nice guy.

Matt: Compliment me in the car. Where's my jacket?

Amanda: It's on the chair where you left it.

Matt: How thoughtful. Nobody moved it for once.

Amanda: So, what is it you would like to do?

Matt: I don't know -- something jolly, though. We have to be jolly.

Amanda: Jolly.

Matt: Very jolly.

Amanda: It's the season.

Matt: This is a jolly season.

Amanda: It is.

Matt: Seasonal jolliness.

Amanda: And we'll be jolly if it kills us.

[Doorbell chimes] Yes.

Matt: Yes, uh-huh. Uh-oh.

Amanda: Damn.

Matt: Under the table, quick. Hide, I'll hide you.

Amanda: Very funny. Ok, ok. Hi there.

Olivia: Hi.

Sam: Hi.

Matt: Ho-ho, close that door.

Sam: Hey, Matt, what's up?

Matt: Hey, how's it going, Sam?

Sam: Good.

Matt: Olivia.

Olivia: Hi, Matthew.

Sam: We're a little early. I hope that's ok.

Amanda: Mm-hmm. Alli is still upstairs. Hilda's getting her ready, so she should be right down.

Sam: Good, thank you.

Olivia: You left the party last night rather suddenly. Was there anything wrong?

Amanda: No, nothing. I was just in a hurry. Just like we are now, right, Matthew?

Matt: Yes.

Amanda: We have some very serious Christmas shopping to do. Put your coat on, let's go.

Matt: Very serious.

Amanda: Excuse me.

Matt: Excuse us. Let's go. Oh-ho, it's cold out here.

Sam: She acted a little strange, didn't she?

Olivia: Not really.

Sam: What do you mean?

Olivia: I think that she's finally accepted that you and I are together. I don't think that's strange at all. I think that it's about time.

Stacey: Why do you think I'd know the answer to that?

Cass: For some reason, I'm beginning to think you know Donna much better than I do.

Stacey: Yeah right. We're like sisters, Cass. We're real close.

Cass: That's not what I mean.

Stacey: Well, what do you mean?

Cass: Don't play the innocent with me, Stace. I'm talking about Mikey's custody hearing. You took Donna aside and when she came back, she was ready to give up her son. I know Donna. She would never do that unless you had something on her -- something big.

Stacey: Look, Cass, I know nothing about Donna that would help your case. That's the truth.

Cass: It'd better be.

Stacey: I do think that if you put her on the stand, it could hurt the case.

Cass: How?

Stacey: Here she comes now.

Donna: Good morning.

Michael: What's happening?

Cass: Well, I'll have a better idea when I get a look at the prospective jurors.

Michael: Well, what kind of people are you looking for?

Cass: The prime requisite is openness. I want to -- I want to avoid rigid --

Donna: What were you saying to Cass?

Stacey: We were talking about the case.

Donna: You were talking about me. I saw the look on Cass' face.

Stacey: All right, we've been talking about you.

Donna: Is he planning to put me on the stand? That can't happen, Stacey. You have to convince him.

Stacey: I told him --

Donna: What?

Stacey: That you could not help the case.

Donna: You did?

Stacey: Yes.

Donna: Oh, well, good.

Stacey: Yeah, I thought that would please you.

Donna: Well, of course it pleases me. I mean, if the jury thought that Marley found out what Jake and I had --

Stacey: I know, it would be the perfect motive for Marley --

Donna: Yes, yes it would. That Morgan person would convince the jury that Marley found out before Jake was shot.

Stacey: Look, I can't guarantee that Cass is going to listen to me.

Donna: He has to.

Stacey: Donna, why don't you just level with him?

Donna: No, I can't -- I can't take that chance. You have to convince him.

Stacey: If I push him any more, he's going to get suspicious.

Donna: You have to do this for Marley.

Stacey: I have to get back inside.

Donna: Stacey, Stacey, we're -- we're on the same side for once.

Stacey: Don't link me to yourself in any way, Donna.

Donna: You be very persuasive with Cass. I can't testify, for Marley's sake and for Michael's.

Stacey: And for your sake. Don't forget that 'cause I haven't.

Vicky: Well, what are you waiting for? Bridget, you'd never do that. You would never admit to everybody that Marley skipped out, so just forget about it.

Bridget: Now, when Marley left, that was her choice.

Vicky: Yes.

Bridget: But I don't want you to suffer the consequences of all this --

Vicky: It's going to work out, Bridget.

Bridget: She is a fugitive from justice.

Vicky: You have been reading too many Agatha Christie novels -- "Fugitive from justice." She decided to leave. Bridget, I am beginning to think that it's the best decision she could have made.

Bridget: Why? I mean, how are we going to explain to everybody that Marley just ran away?

Vicky: My hair -- is my hair ok or is it too me?

Bridget: Now, what do you mean that this is the best decision she's ever made?

Vicky: Bridget, how do you think Marley would have been on the witness stand?

Bridget: I think she'd be direct and honest.

Vicky: Exactly. She would've been a complete disaster. The D.A. would have made minced meat out of her.

Bridget: And what -- and she won't out of you?

Vicky: No.

Bridget: When you are up there pretending that you are Marley.

Vicky: No, of course not. I can handle that legal eagle. Bridget, now it is going to be fine.

Bridget: You know, you seem almost relieved about this.

Vicky: Maybe I am.

Bridget: Is that because you are in control?

Vicky: Bridget, do you know something? I was never meant to be a back-up singer. There in front.

Bridget: Oh, my dear, this -- this act, can you bring it off?

Vicky: I've pretended to be Marley before, haven't I?

Bridget: Oh my goodness.

Vicky: And I brought it off before, haven't I?

Bridget: You never fooled Jamie.

Vicky: Oh, yes I did. He says I don't -- didn't now, but -- but he bought it. He did. It'll be fine.

Bridget: Oh, Victor -- Victoria, the stakes are so high, dear.

Vicky: All I have to do now is figure out why Vicky isn't going to the trial.

Bridget: That's not all you have to do. If you get into that courtroom and one single person suspects --

Vicky: Bridget, they won't! I'm going to be the perfect Marley, all right?

[Doorbell rings] I'll get it. Not a word.

Vicky: Jamie, hi.

Jamie: Hello, Vicky. Good morning, Bridget.

Bridget: Good morning, Jamie.

Jamie: Is Marley here?

Paulina: What do you think? Isn't it beautiful?

Dean: It's a scarf, that's for sure.

Paulina: It's pure silk.

Dean: $295. Wow.

Paulina: I'm getting it for Amanda.

Dean: My last motorcycle didn't cost $295.

Paulina: What do you think of this? Do you love it , or do you hate it? I don't know.

Dean: I don't know. It's hard to get emotional about this stuff.

Paulina: Look at these sweaters. There is so much to decide on. How am I ever going to choose?

Dean: Now, Paulina --

Paulina: Well, you know, I don't have to, you know. I can just get it all.

Dean: Paulina, you really should -- maybe you should --

Paulina: Here, hold this. We are going to shop till you drop.

Dean: Oh yeah? That's your idea of a good time, huh?

Paulina: Oh come on, how can you not be impressed by a place like this? It's the most exclusive department store in all of Bay City.

Dean: Hmm.

Paulina: I always wanted to shop in a place like this.

Dean: All it does is make me feel really poor.

Paulina: Well --

Woman: May I help you find something?

Paulina: Yes, we are here to do some Christmas shopping.

Woman: I see. Well, we have a marvelous bargain basement.

Paulina: We don't want bargains.

Dean: That's right. We want to be ripped off. Sorry.

Paulina: My name is Paulina Cory. I believe my family has an account here.

Dean: C-o-r-y.

Woman: Oh yes, yes, yes, of course.

Paulina: I would like to see some cashmere sweaters for Mrs. Cory. And after that, I'd like to take a look at some jewelry. Thank you.

Dean: Jewelry? We're going to get some major suckin' up.

Paulina: Mm-hmm.

Dean: That's good.

Paulina: I want to get Rachel's present out of the way today.

Dean: That's a good idea, yeah, yeah. That's a good idea and after you spend thousands of dollars on cashmere and jewelry for Rachel, maybe you can let me follow you to another department like, uh, lingerie -- ladies' lingerie, or something.

Paulina: Actually, I was thinking of doing something for you next.

Dean: Get out of town, come on.

Paulina: Why do you think I asked you to come along, huh?

Dean: Oh yeah.

Vicky: Marley went to get some fresh air. She's like that. She went for a walk.

Jamie: Any idea where she likes to walk?

Vicky: Nope. Walking's not my thing.

Jamie: Well, what's her dress doing out here?

Vicky: It just got back from the cleaners. It's the dress she's wearing to the trial.

Bridget: Victoria --

Vicky: Bridget, I think that's Steven I hear. Could you go tend to him, please? Thank you, Bridget. Thank you, Bridget.

Jamie: That was some press conference last night.

Vicky: Oh, yeah.

Jamie: You really gave it to those reporters.

Vicky: Oh well, they deserved it.

Jamie: How did Marley's talk with Cass go?

Vicky: Talk?

Jamie: Last night you said she was supposed to meet him.

Vicky: Oh yeah, that -- uh, it never happened.

Jamie: It didn't?

Vicky: Uh-uh. It got so late, no. It, uh, they never talked.

Jamie: But she got home all right.

Vicky: Mm-hmm. Yeah fine. She said she had a wonderful time.

Jamie: Vicky, you seem a little --

Vicky: What?

Jamie: I don't know -- uncomfortable.

Vicky: Now?

Jamie: Yes.

Vicky: Me?

Jamie: Is there something you're not telling me?

Vicky: Actually, there is.

Jamie: Go on.

Vicky: Marley asked me to tell you she doesn't want you to drive her to the courthouse. She thinks that too many people would see you together.

Jamie: Why didn't she call me and tell me that herself?

Vicky: It's been kind of a tense day, Jamie.

Jamie: Is she all right?

Vicky: Mm-hmm. She's absolutely fine. What are you doing?

Jamie: Waiting for Marley. I'm not leaving till I see her.

Vicky: What's the problem?

Jamie: I'm staying, Vicky. I'm not leaving till I see Marley walk in that door.

John: After you, ladies. Taylor.

Taylor: Hi, John.

John: What are you doing here? You here for the trial?

Taylor: I was concerned about Marley.

John: That's very nice of you.

Taylor: Well, I know that she's your niece and so you'd be here lending your support. I thought maybe you'd be in the market for a little support yourself.

John: Well, thank you, but you didn't have to do that.

Taylor: It's the least I could do after our talk.

John: What talk?

Taylor: The talk where you put my entire life in perspective for me.

John: Oh yes, that talk.

Taylor: You did a lot for me, so, when I can, I like to return the favor. Shall we go in?

Cass: It's a process of weeding out. Morgan will dismiss the people that she thinks are sympathetic to Marley, and I'll be doing the same thing to the people that I think are hardliners.

Michael: Now, do you have questions that you ask to figure that out?

Cass: Yes, I do. But it is a crap shoot. The one person you were afraid to have on the jury could turn out to be your best friend.

Michael: And vice versa.

Cass: Try not to worry, ok? Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to review some notes.

Frankie: Yeah, let's get out of his hair, guys. Oh, there's John.

Cass: Stacey, wait.

Stacey: What?

Cass: What is going on between you and Donna?

Stacey: It's an uneasy truce.

Cass: No, there's more.

Stacey: More what?

Cass: You can't stand the sight of her. You've made that clear enough.

Stacey: So?

Cass: So, why are you so adamant about me not putting her on the stand?

Stacey: I'm not adamant. It's just a professional opinion, that's all --

Cass: I saw the two of you go off for a little chat. Now, what's the story?

Stacey: Look, I --

Cass: We'll talk about this later.

Man: I took some notes on those cases --

Morgan: Later, Jack.

Jack: You asked me to look into.

Morgan: Good morning.

Cass: You can skip the amenities, Morgan.

Morgan: I know we've had our personal problems in the past, Cass.

Cass: A gross misunderstanding.

Morgan: I was hoping we could put our differences aside.

Cass: Were you?

Morgan: In the interest of justice.

Cass: I smell a deal coming on.

Morgan: You know I really hate wasting the taxpayers' money on a needless trial.

Cass: I'm right, you're offering a deal.

Morgan: That's right. The only one Marley McKinnon is going to get.

Alli: You can't color him.

Olivia: Ohh.

Alli: Because he's --

Olivia: Are you going to color him? I think he needs to be colored. Come on, Alli, you want to color him, or --

Alli: Black.

Olivia: It's a dolphin. Or do you want to --

Alli: Big duck.

Sam: You know, why don't we take her to the park? I think it'd be good for her to get outside.

Olivia: Oh ok, why not?

Sam: Do you have time before your dance class? Is it ok?

Olivia: Sure, yeah.

Sam: Ok, great.

Olivia: Alli, we'll color some more later, ok? Where did you put her coat, Sam?

Sam: Uh, coat right over here. There it is.

Olivia: Oh.

Sam: Here you go.

Olivia: She's not wearing this one, is she?

Sam: Yeah, what's wrong with it?

Olivia: Well, it's freezing outside with the wind chill factor.

Sam: The coat is fine. What are you talking about?

Olivia: I really think that we should -- we should go back to the Corys' and get a heavier coat. I don't think this one's enough for the park.

Sam: Amanda obviously thought it was enough. Otherwise, she would have left a heavier coat.

Olivia: Well, Sam, but look how thin it is. I don't want her -- you don't want her to catch cold or anything like that.

Sam: Olivia, wait. Alli already has a mother and a very good one.

Olivia: I know that. I never meant to imply that she didn't.

Sam: Well, then back off about the coat, all right?

Olivia: Alli, sweetheart, why don't you stay here and color? Just why don't you color this --

Alli: I don't want to.

Olivia: You don't want to? Sure you do. Look at -- you color the raccoon, ok? And we'll go to the park in --

Alli: Now.

Olivia: Right away. Ok well, I'll be right back. Just hang on. This is not about a coat, is it?

Sam: Look, I'm gonna make some sandwiches to go to the park. You want anything?

Olivia: Not until you tell me exactly --

Sam: Olivia, I just want to get going, all right?

Olivia: You've been tense since you picked me up this morning.

Sam: You want peanut butter and jelly? What do you want to eat?

Olivia: Sam.

Sam: You want a sandwich, what? What -- what?

Olivia: Is this because I said I wanted us to move in together?

I'm sorry, I never meant to pressure you.

Sam: Well, I am feeling pressured, all right? Look, I'm sorry. This is just not a good time for me. My life is very unsettled right now.

Olivia: I -- I don't understand. What do you mean?

Sam: It's the job at the gallery.

Olivia: You're not happy there?

Sam: No, I am not.

Olivia: You're an artist. You need to create, not sell. There's nothing wrong with that.

Sam: There is if you need money.

Olivia: Well, there's another way that you could earn the money that you need.

Sam: Yeah, how?

Olivia: You could take the job at Cory that Amanda offered you.

Morgan: So, are we ready to listen?

Cass: I already know what you are going to say. You are going to reduce the charges if my client pleads guilty. I'm not sure she can live with that on her record.

Morgan: That's not what I'm offering.

Cass: Oh no?

Morgan: There won't be any reduction in charges.

Cass: Then what's the deal?

Morgan: You plead your client guilty. I recommend the minimum sentence.

Cass: This is a joke, right? You've miraculously developed a sense of humor.

Morgan: Your client won't serve any more than three to five years -- that's maximum.

Cass: Morgan, if you are afraid to try this case, just say so.

Morgan: I'm not afraid of anything, Cass.

Cass: Really? I could have sworn that your so-called offer was a last-ditch attempt to save face.

Morgan: It's your funeral, counselor -- actually, your client's.

Jack: I take it Winthrop rejected your offer?

Morgan: It's his problem. Please bring this note back to the office.

Thank you. I'll speak with you later.

Frankie: So, uh, what did Morgan want?

Cass: To cut a deal.

Donna: What kind of deal?

Cass: I plead Marley guilty as charged and she recommends a minimum sentence.

Donna: Oh.

Michael: You're kidding. That doesn't sound like much of a deal.

Cass: That's what I told her. Let's look at it this way. If she's wanting to make that deal, as lousy as it is, it proves that she doesn't have an air-tight case. So, I'll just bring it up to her during the trial. Where is Marley?

Michael: Actually, Jamie went to pick her up.

Cass: You're kidding.

Michael: No, why?

Cass: I told the two of them to stay away from each other.

Jamie: Aren't you supposed to be getting ready to go to court?

Vicky: Me? No, all I've got to do is throw on a dress.

Jamie: Getting late.

Vicky: Oh, I'm sure she'll be back any minute.

Jamie: You have no idea where she went?

Vicky: I told you for a walk.

You know, I was in such a rush last night, I didn't even ask you how your dinner went?

Jamie: Good, it was good.

Vicky: What did the two of you talk about?

Jamie: A lot of things.

Vicky: Like what?

Jamie: I don't know. We talked about our time in Nice quite a bit.

Vicky: Nice.

Jamie: What's going on, Vicky?

Vicky: Did she say she wanted to go back there?

Jamie: Yes, she did, after the trial. Why?

Vicky: Why --

Jamie: Why are you so interested in what we talked about last night? I thought that you had finally gotten past your feelings about Marley and me.

Vicky: I have. I'm not so interested.

Jamie: Vicky, cut the tap dance. Talk to me straight.

Vicky: I guess I can't hide this from you. I'm going to tell you something that has to stay between the two of us.

Jamie: Ok.

Vicky: Only the two of us.

Jamie: What is it, Vicky?

Vicky: I -- I'm going to tell you the real reason Marley isn't here. Marley can't face you right now.

Jamie: Why?

Vicky: This isn't easy for me.

Jamie: Ok.

Vicky: Marley -- well, she loves you. And because of the way she is, she feels guilty about what she's putting you through.

Jamie: I don't care about that.

Vicky: That's what I told her. But for as sweet as she is, she is very stubborn, Jamie.

Jamie: Vicky, I told her we were going to go through this together no matter what happens.

Vicky: I'm sure you did. But this is the way she feels. Jamie, she's afraid that if she sees you before she walks into the courtroom, that she's going to fall apart.

Jamie: She told you that?

Vicky: Which is why I'm driving her to the courthouse.

Jamie: You?

Vicky: It's -- it's what she wanted. I'm sorry, I was going to tell you when we came in, but it was just too hard.

Jamie: I'm having trouble buying this, Vicky. Why didn't she just tell me last night?

Vicky: Because she didn't want to spoil your evening. Besides, she knew how you were going to react.

Jamie: I wouldn't go against her wishes. Why would she think that? Marley would know better.

Vicky: She felt it was better this way. And I wasn't kidding about what I said before. Cass doesn't want to see the two of you together, remember?

Jamie: We weren't going to walk in together. I just wanted to talk with her in her car.

Vicky: Well, you can talk to her later. And Jamie, hey, it's -- it's getting late, I -- I really got to get ready.

Jamie: Ok, I'll see you at the trial.

Vicky: Jamie.

Jamie: What?

Vicky: Do you really think that you should go to the trial? The reporters are going to be there and --

Jamie: Vicky, I'll keep my distance. But I'm definitely going to be in that courtroom.

Vicky: We -- we both just want what's best for Marley, right?

Bridget: I heard everything that was said.

Vicky: Why does that not surprise me?

Bridget: You cannot go through this. I mean, you can't do it, dear. I mean, Jamie is going to see right through you.

Vicky: Bridget, would you please just give me some time to think?

Bridget: He knew right away that you were not yourself, I mean, in spite of your sweet words and all your shy smiles and all of that --

Vicky: I just haven't had time to get everything together, all right?

Bridget: Jamie is not the only person you have to fool, you know. There's Ryan. And then there's your Mum and Dad. And then there's your uncle and Mr. Winthrop. Have you thought about that, Victoria? Have you? What are you going to do?

Vicky: The right thing.

Sam: No. Taking the job at Cory is not a good idea.

Olivia: Tell me something. Is this because you think that I can't handle it?

Sam: Olivia, do you really want me working with Amanda? I mean, seeing her every day, working side by side.

Olivia: I wouldn't mind. I wouldn't mind. And besides, you can't go around making decisions based on what I would think.

Sam: I don't believe you. I do not believe you.

Olivia: Sam, I know that I've not been the most supportive or secure person when it comes to Amanda. But that's changed. Last night at Felicia's party, I looked at her and I looked at you and I just knew that you and I have something that Amanda can't threaten. I could feel it. I want you to be happy. I want you to enjoy your work and that's not going to happen at the gallery.

Sam: No, it isn't.

Olivia: So, why don't you consider taking the art director job at Cory and know that I will never stand in the way of you doing what you want to do.

Sam: Man, you sure know how to surprise me.

Olivia: Well, I hope so. And now, I think I'll give you some time alone with your daughter. And I'll get in some extra rehearsal time.

Sam: Wait, there's just one more thing we need to do before you leave.

Olivia: What?

Sam: Just one last thing to take care of.

Olivia: What?

Paulina: Isn't this a great jacket?

Dean: Let me see. Hmm, it's ok.

Paulina: Ok? 850 bucks, it better --

Dean: $850?!

Paulina: I'm going to get this, too.

Dean: You just bought that?

Paulina: For Matt. All he has is a leather jacket -- a beat-up one, you know. It's not very nice.

Dean: Most people like it beat-up.

Paulina: So, now he'll have a beat-up one and a not so beat-up one. I think I'll get him a scarf to go with it.

Dean: What happened to the whole idea of buying him ski equipment?

Paulina: I am going to buy him ski -- this is just a little stocking stuffer, you know, a little something on the side.

Dean: The way you are spending your money, sweetheart, you'd think someone was going to take it away.

Paulina: Think this will go with the jacket?

Dean: Would you listen to me for a second?

Paulina: No, it's not really Matt's style.

Dean: Paulina, listen, listen to me -- excuse me.

Paulina: What?

Dean: I know that you are all excited about your -- your first Christmas with your new family and everything but look at this. Don't you think you are going a little overboard?

Paulina: That's what Christmas is for.

Dean: Wait, you're telling me that you think that Christmas is a time that you can spend a million dollars on stuff that people don't even really need or want?

Paulina: Dean, everybody loves getting presents at Christmas time, right? I mean, if you can afford to do it, why not?

Dean: I think that you're going to end up embarrassing people.

Paulina: Embarrassing them? Why?

Dean: Look at -- check -- say you give them all this stuff, ok, all this expensive stuff, and then they end up getting you something like, you know, a powder puff or a bottle of cologne or something?

Paulina: It'll be all right.

Dean: Come on, listen to yourself. It's not all right.

Paulina: I have a lot to make up for, all right, Dean?

Dean: What could you have to make up to anybody, huh?

Paulina: Because I have missed so many Christmases with my family. Just leave me alone, ok?

Dean: All right.

Paulina: Wait till you hear what I am getting you.

Dean: Oh no, I don't want anything.

Paulina: Now, I really shouldn't tell you until Christmas because --

Dean: It's bad luck. Don't tell me. I don't want to know.

Paulina: I know you're dying to know. I am backing your demo.

Dean: You're what?

Paulina: Yes, it's decided. I don't want to hear another word about it. Matt, Amanda.

Matt: Hey.

Amanda: Hi.

Matt: How are you doing?

Paulina: Good. Guess we all had the same idea.

Matt: I am telling you.

Dean: Hey, what's happening, Matt?

Matt: What's happening?

Amanda: Hi, I'm Amanda.

Dean: Dean, hi.

Amanda: Hi, Dean. So, pretty busy, huh?

Paulina: Yeah.

Dean: A little bit.

Paulina: Oh.

Woman: Here's another package for you, Miss Cory.

Paulina: Oh, great. Just put them with the rest, thanks.

Matt: Wow.

Paulina: Um, Matt --

Amanda: These are all your things?

Paulina: Yeah, and actually there's still something I have to have wrapped. Don't look and go away, ok? Get lost. Dean, can you --

Dean: Oh yeah, no, no, no. Come on.

Matt: What is it?

Dean: Let's get a soda. I'm burned out on this --

Matt: Yeah, I need a break.

Amanda: Needs a break? We just started. Guess he's not very good at shopping, huh?

Paulina: Neither is Dean. All he does is complain about the prices.

Amanda: Well, this is a pretty pricey store.

Paulina: Yeah, it is. But it's worth it. I mean, look at this stuff. It's great quality. You get what you pay for -- for the most part.

Dean: This is some store, huh?

Matt: Yeah.

Dean: Yeah. Especially if you're a prep with a lot of bucks. I mean, look. Got your basic tweeds right there. And you got you what you call turtlenecks with cashmere right there. Real cashmere.

Matt: Mm-hmm.

Dean: Got glove-fitting leather jackets.

Matt: Nice, nice.

Dean: Which are pretty nice. I hope you like them, by the way.

Mat: Did you mean that?

Dean: What?

Matt: I mean, do you -- do you think I'm a preppie with bucks? Come on.

Dean: No, no, no, no, no. I think you're a good guy. You are a good guy. And if I think you are a good guy, believe me, you are a good guy, ok?

Matt: Well, I think you hit on it. I'm a preppie.

Dean: Matt, don't listen to me, ok? I went in this -- this wave of Christmas blues hit me and believe me, I saw it on "Donahue," the whole Christmas blues thing. It exists if it was on "Donahue." Bunch of wailing wimps under the mistletoe. It was a sad sight.

Matt: Do you miss Christmas back in Oklahoma?

Dean: Well, I haven't been there in two years, actually. There's not a lot to miss. I do remember asking Santa Claus, though, if I could -- if I could get a car so I could get the hell out of Oklahoma.

Matt: And to New York.

Dean: Yeah.

Matt: Oh, I heard -- overheard Paulina say she's gonna pay for your demo.

Dean: You heard that?

Matt: Yeah. You going to let her?

Dean: I -- I haven't made up my mind yet. I don't know if I want somebody that close to the project, you know. I don't even know if she knows what she's getting herself into. I mean, I would like to be -- what I would like. I just want to be my own man when it comes to --

Matt: Wait a minute, wait a minute. You are your own man. You -- I mean, you know what you want. You are going and getting it. Gosh, I wish I could do that.

Dean: Come on, Matt, you got everything, man.

Matt: I got things. You know, life isn't about things. It's about ideas. It's about dreams. It's about, you know, wanting something, knowing where it's at and going and getting it. And you have that. I don't have it. I want it. Hello, is any of this getting through to you?

Dean: No -- yeah, no, I heard you. It's deep. No, I buy -- I'm the -- I feel the same way. I think that life is about -- about family and friends and hopes and --

Matt: Yeah, family.

Dean: And dreams and everything. Let's just go do some major browsing around, all right? I could put a deposit on some leather jacket or something.

Matt: I saw some leather over here.

Dean: Get the Christmas blues.

Amanda: So, all these boxes are yours, huh?

Paulina: Wait till you see the jacket that I got Matt. I was going to get him ski equipment, but I couldn't resist this jacket. It's gorgeous. What else did I get? Oh, I got Rachel these two beautiful cashmere sweaters and a red coat. Ah, it's beautiful. I think she looks great in red.

Amanda: Paulina --

Paulina: Of course, I can't tell you what I got you, but I'm sure you are going to love it. Of course, you can return it if you don't want it. And I got Alli this amazing dollhouse with all the furniture inside. It's on order, but they said they'd have it by Christmas.

Amanda: Uh, Paulina, you bought us all these extravagant gifts?

Paulina: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: So, you spent hundreds of dollars on each one of us?

Paulina: Something wrong with that?

Amanda: Uh, yeah. I think there is. Paulina, I know you are just being generous, but we don't usually give each other gifts like that.

Paulina: You don't?

Amanda: No, I mean, we'll give one or two gifts, you know, nothing elaborate or expensive. Just something to go underneath the tree.

Paulina: Hmm, I see.

Amanda: Alli and Steven get gifts, of course. You know, not so much that they don't appreciate it, though.

Paulina: Hmm. Why do you do that?

Amanda: Well, Dad -- he was always telling us how lucky we were and how there's a lot of people out there that really weren't. So, every Christmas what we do is pick a charity and he would send a check to that charity in our name and -- and that's what we do at Christmas.

Paulina: Well, I feel kind of foolish.

Amanda: Oh no, no, actually I do. Somebody should have told you.

Paulina: Oh no, hey, it's no big deal. It's all right.

Amanda: I don't want you to misunderstand. I mean, I think it's great what you are doing. It's just not necessary, you know. We love you without all of that. Sorry.

Matt: Hey, oh wow. We had to go to the employees' locker room, rustle up a couple sodas. Sorry, we couldn't get you girls a refreshment, but --

Dean: Last ones.

Amanda: Last ones, yeah. Listen, you.

Matt: Yes.

Amanda: You are going with me to the toy department. What do you think?

Matt: Toy -- yeah, yeah.

Amanda: Yeah? But promise me something.

Matt: What?

Amanda: We are leaving there in 15 minutes.

Matt: Hey. That's ok because I am all shopped out. I can't wait to get home.

Amanda: Come on. See you guys.

Dean: Later. What's the matter? Something wrong?

Paulina: Uh, you can put those back.

Woman: Can I get you anything else?

Paulina: No, I don't want any of it. Just put it all back.

Dean: Whoa. Sorry. Bye.

John: I'm worried about Marley. She should have been here by now.

Taylor: She'll be here, John.

John: Cass looks a little nervous, too.

Taylor: Can I offer you a friendly piece of advice?

John: You think I'm worrying too much.

Taylor: Don't borrow trouble.

John: None of this should be happening, Taylor. Marley is a chip off the old block. She's just like Michael. She wouldn't hurt anyone --

Taylor: All I'm saying is there's only so much you can take responsibility for. Sharlene gone, your work, and now Marley's troubles? You are spreading yourself too thin.

John: I'll make it through.

Taylor: You need to relax, John.

John: It's easy to say.

Taylor: I'm not saying to forget about everything. I'm just saying that you need to take some time and look at yourself and look at what you need.

John: Tell that to my patients.

Taylor: What are you doing later on today? This evening?

John: I don't know, I'd have to check my schedule. Why?

Taylor: It's just that I have this tree in the middle of my living room and it smells great, but it's just looking kind of bare.

John: And you think it needs to be dressed, is that it?

Taylor: Trimming a Christmas tree, what a great idea. What terrific relaxation.

John: Well, you would think it would be good relaxation, at least on the surface, but actually, it's not. You see, you have to deal with all the pine needles. Then, you take out the lights. The wires are always crossed. Half the lights never work.

Taylor: John.

John: The tree -- it's always at an odd angle.

Taylor: John.

John: All right, I'll be there. It'll be very relaxing.

Cass: So, where's Marley?

Jamie: You said we shouldn't be seen together.

Cass: I know, but we begin here any minute.

Jamie: She's coming with Vicky and Bridget.

Cass: If Judge Woods convenes and she's not --

Michael: Wait a minute, it's ok. I'm going to go call Vicky right now.

Bailiff: All rise.

Judge Woods: You may be seated. Mr. Winthrop, we seem to be missing someone. Where's your client?

Amanda: Sam?

Sam: Hi.

Amanda: Where's Alli?

Sam: She's upstairs with Hilda.

Amanda: Oh. I didn't expect you back for a while.

Sam: Yeah, I know I'm a little early. I actually wanted to see you.

Amanda: You did?

Sam: The job at Cory, is the art director position still open?

Amanda: Uh, yes. Why? Are you considering it?

Sam: I might be if certain conditions are met.

Amanda: Ok, what would they be?

Sam: First of all, the salary that was offered -- it's way too low.

Amanda: What did you have in mind?

Sam: I'd like another $10,000 a year.

Amanda: That's a bit of money.

Sam: I'm worth it.

Amanda: Ok, you've got it. Is there anything else?

Sam: Yes. I don't want to ever have to answer to you directly. I will work through Rachel and Iris, but not you.

Amanda: Fine. Anything else?

Sam: One more thing. You have yourself a new art director.

Dean: Well, I don't know. I'm sorry. Sorry today was such a bummer.

Paulina: Well, I just think it's ridiculous. I mean, if someone wants to spend a lot of money on gifts, there shouldn't be anything wrong with that. But I guess it's not the Cory way.

Dean: Well, you'll get -- you'll get the hang of it, you know.

Paulina: I better.

Dean: Listen, I want to talk to you about something, ok? About doing my demo and everything.

Paulina: I'm doing it, Dean.

Dean: You know, I wanted you to invest. I didn't want you to give me the whole thing.

Paulina: I want to give it to you.

Dean: No, but I can't --

Paulina: Dean.

Dean: No, ok, no. Just -- just forget about it. I'll tell you what you can do for me, though.

Paulina: Anything.

Dean: You can just be my friend.

Paulina: I already am that.

Dean: Well then, this Christmas is going to be the best Christmas I've ever had.

Paulina: I better get going.

Dean: Ok, but promise me one thing before you go, ok? Just promise to cheer up. And smile for me. I know that's two things, but I just -- I want you to remember how lucky you are. You are lucky.

Cass: In light of the fact that the prosecution misplaced the weapon, causing a delay --

Judge Woods: Now are you serious, counselor?

Cass: Oh absolutely, your honor.

Judge Woods: You are moving to adjourn?

Cass: Until tomorrow.

Judge Woods: Have you ever heard of a docket?

Cass: Yes, your honor.

Judge Woods: This court's docket indicated that "the people versus McKinnon" begins today and begin it will. Motion denied. Now, produce your client, Mr. Winthrop.

Cass: She must be stuck in traffic, your honor.

Judge: Then, I suggest you find her. If she doesn't appear within five minutes, I'll issue a warrant for her arrest, clear?

Cass: Yes, your honor.

Jamie: You got here just in time. Marley?
