[Knock on door]
Taylor: Are you nesting?
Taylor: Rearranging things is a pretty good sign.
Sharlene: No, I'm looking for something.
Taylor: Can I help?
Sharlene: I don't know. You may be the only one who can.
Taylor: Sharlene, what's wrong?
Sharlene: After I left your house, I went to the store where that peignoir came from.
Taylor: To return it?
Sharlene: No, to find out who -- who bought it.
Taylor: Did you?
Sharlene: Yeah. It had been charged on a store credit card, and the clerk I talked with told me that it was a new account. It had been opened in the name of -- of Sharly Watts. So I've got to find the card.
Taylor: So that's why you're tearing the place apart.
Sharlene: I have to find it before John does.
Taylor: Right now, you have to take care of yourself.
Sharlene: Ok, look. I'm scared. This can't be happening again. Not now.
Taylor: Sharlene, now calm down. We'll find it.
Sharlene: Do --
Taylor: You have to think back.
Sharlene: Don't you see? I've tried, and I can't remember anything about this.
Taylor: Sharlene --
Sharlene: What am I going to do? What if she's back?
Marley: It's over.
Vicky: The trial's over for today, they gave Cass more time?
Marley: No. I mean it's over for good.
Vicky: The trial is over so soon?
Vicky: Marley, it can't be. Did you take the stand?
Vicky: And Cass and the D.A. gave their closing arguments? The case went to jury?
Marley: It didn't happen like that. There were no closing arguments. The jury was dismissed.
Marley: I think the Judge is going to drop all charges against me --
Vicky: Then you're free? Oh, that's wonderful! I -- I don't understand why you don't look happy.
Marley: Vicky, it was awful. It was worse than anything you could imagine.
Vicky: What could be worse than being locked up for years? Marley, this is great. You're free! Why don't we celebrate?
Marley: We can't. It -- I wanted to be the one to tell you what happened today.
Vicky: Cass got you off on some kind of technicality, right?
Marley: No. It was Donna.
Vicky: What did she do?
Marley: She shot Jake.
Marley: She admitted that she shot him.
Vicky: She actually said that?
Vicky: Marley, you know what she was doing.
Marley: Yes. I know.
Vicky: Honey, she was covering for you. She must have figured it out.
Vicky: Marley, we've got to talk. I mean, with Mom in all of this mess, we've got to be honest with each other.
Marley: About what?
Vicky: About the fact that you shot Jake!
Officer: You have a visitor, Mrs. Hudson.
Donna: Is it my husband?
Officer: It's your lawyer.
Donna: I haven't hired a lawyer yet.
Officer: You have 15 minutes.
Stacey: Ok. Hello, Donna.
Donna: You're calling yourself my lawyer?
Stacey: You need one, don't you?
Donna: How are Marley and Michael?
Stacey: Neither one of them is doing very well right now. Why didn't you listen to me? I told you to talk to Cass and tell him what you knew. But no. You had to do things your way --
Donna: I don't need any lectures.
Stacey: Why did you do it? You're always talking about how much you love your children.
Donna: I do. With all my heart, I do.
Stacey: So you put a bullet in Jake, and you let Marley take the blame for it.
Donna: You don't understand.
Stacey: No, I don't understand. I don't understand how you could let your daughter take the blame for this, and you sit back and keep your mouth closed and watch her suffer like that. That's your idea of love?
Marley: You actually thought I shot Jake?
Vicky: Marley, I knew that you were covering something.
Marley: Vicky, I was raped. Of course I was covering something.
Vicky: But when I got to the loft and Jake was lying there bleeding, what else could I think?
Marley: I was sure it was you.
Marley: The look that you had in your eye that night --
Vicky: Honey, I was just trying to make sure that Jake wasn't going to hurt you again.
Marley: I know, but I thought that that's why you shot him. You were the one who got blood on the hem of my coat.
Vicky: I didn't shoot him, I just went over to see how bad it was. When I got there, there was blood everywhere. What else was I supposed to think?
Marley: I thought you believed me. I told you he was fine when I left him.
Vicky: I know, but I -- I thought that you were lying.
Marley: And I thought that you were. I assumed that that's why we made the pact.
Vicky: I was just trying to protect you!
Marley: I was trying to do the same thing.
Vicky: So you deliberately made them think that you shot Jake?
Marley: No. I didn't think Morgan would be able to prove that I did it, because I was innocent. But you were so desperate...
Vicky: For you. Neither one of us did it.
Marley: Donna did.
Vicky: All right. Tell me what happened. What did she say? Was she -- Mom on the stand?
Marley: No, I was. Cass made me testify about the rape.
Vicky: He did?
Marley: Yeah. It was awful, and Morgan started to get to me. I could hardly speak. And then Donna stood up and admitted everything.
Vicky: Marley, what -- what exactly did she say?
Marley: That she slept with Jake.
Vicky: Was Dad in the courtroom?
Marley: Of course he was. He was so -- so shocked. But you aren't. My God.
Marley: You knew... that Donna slept with Jake.
John: You want to talk?
Michael: She could have told me, John.
John: What, that she slept with Jake and then shot him?
Michael: She may have slept with Jake. She couldn't shoot him.
John: The press still out there?
Jamie: Yeah. But Morgan is giving them a statement now, so they will be out of there soon. Michael, the Judge said you could pass through his chambers, if you wish.
Michael: Thank you. Are you going to see Marley?
Jamie: Cass is wrapping up her case right now. I really should see how that went, then I'll go.
Michael: Will you tell her that I'm all right? And tell her that I'll call her later. Take care of her, Jamie. This is really hard.
Jamie: Of course. Of course, Michael. I'll give you a call later. You'll be at Michael's?
John: Yes. I'll talk to you then.
Michael: [Whispering] I hate this place. I hate this place --
John: Come on, let's get out of here, Mike.
Michael: I lost Mikey in this place.
John: I know.
Michael: [Sobbing] I thought nothing could be worse than that.
John: I'm sorry, Mike.
Michael: I don't know. Oh, what happened? I mean, we were so close. How could she -- how could she hide this?
John: Come on, let's go and see how's Donna's doing.
Michael: You know, when Marley was arrested, Donna was frantic. She was frantic. I thought it was because she was worried about our daughter. But she was worried that if somebody got too close to what Jake was doing, they'd find out about her. How could she do that?
John: She thought that you'd left her, Mike. You know how Donna always goes off course --
Michael: No, don't -- don't defend her, John! Don't defend her.
I want to be alone, man. All right? Just -- just -- I don't want to take this out on you.
John: Not a good idea --
Michael: I don't care if it's a good idea. Just leave me alone! I need to think. I need to figure out what I'm going to do.
John: Ok. I'll call you later. Do you want me to check and find out what they're going to do with Donna?
Michael: I don't really care what they do with Donna.
Donna: At least Marley's not in prison.
Stacey: You're in very deep trouble.
Donna: I don't care.
Stacey: And your attitude is only going to make things worse.
Donna: I know why you're here, Stacey. You feel responsible.
Stacey: What do I have to do with it?
Donna: They wouldn't have taken Mikey if I hadn't let you blackmail me.
Stacey: That was your choice, Donna.
Donna: I had no choice. If they hadn't taken Mikey, you would have done to me what I did to myself today.
Stacey: I didn't make you shoot Jake.
Donna: I wasn't myself after they took Mikey. You ask anybody.
Stacey: That's not going to work as a good defense strategy. So let's just relax, all right? And deal with what we've got here and now. I've got your signed confession in here from the police. Do you want to read it?
Donna: No. What's going to happen to me?
Stacey: Luckily for you, Morgan doesn't look like she wants to go through another trial. So I am going to try to plea bargain. This won't go away.
Donna: Will I go to prison?
Stacey: Right now, I am trying to get you out on bail.
Donna: Will I stay here tonight?
Stacey: You will stay here tonight. Can I get you anything? I'll keep in touch.
Taylor: Sharlene, don't panic. We can deal with this before things escalate. You talk to John, we'll begin therapy.
Sharlene: Taylor, do you really think that's best?
Taylor: Sharlene, would you rather change therapists?
Sharlene: I -- no.
Taylor: I know your case so well, and given the circumstances, I really think we shouldn't waste any time.
Sharlene: Are you ready to take me on again?
Taylor: I want to do what's easiest for you. Maybe that's not possible.
Sharlene: You see, it's not you. It's the idea of having to start all those sessions all over again.
Taylor: Sharlene, usually a patient and therapist agree on the end of therapy. I never agreed.
Sharlene: But Sharly is gone. I don't know. Maybe -- maybe there is another Sharly Watts in Bay City.
Taylor: Who just happened to buy a negligee and hide it in your kitchen?
Sharlene: Hello. Who? Royal Apartment rentals. Confirm what appointment? No. There has been a mistake. I don't care what she said.
Taylor: Was that a call for Sharly?
Sharlene: Yes. You're right. I have to start therapy again.
Ada: You want to leave?
Amanda: No, I'm fine. I work with Sam now, remember?
Ada: Working together and watching him with Olivia is not the same.
Olivia: Are you going over a fight?
Sam: I'm sorry. Why don't you give me the paper here? I'll take a look at the schedule.
Caroline: Sam, Olivia.
Caroline: Sam, there was a looker at the gallery today.
Caroline: He was very interested in one of your paintings from the family love series. He saw it in New York. I believe it's at your loft, isn't it?
Sam: No, actually, I put those in storage.
Caroline: Oh. Well, I gave him your number anyway, because he wants to make an offer. So please check your machine when you get home.
Sam: Why wait? I'll call him now.
Caroline: Oh. Go for it.
Olivia: Make sure he gives you what you deserve.
Sam: Got it.
Caroline: So, how are things going?
Olivia: It could be better.
(Missed a few minutes here)
Marley: and you would have let me, knowing what you knew about him and Donna!
Vicky: It wasn't like that.
Marley: You tell me, then, what was it like? Tell me!
Vicky: I didn't think it was fair that things were going to work out for you and Jamie. And I -- I thought that you were going to have the life with him that I always wanted.
Marley: You selfish person. You were jealous of me!
Vicky: Yes! All right? I was jealous. But I swear to God I never would have let you marry Jake. I was going to tell you everything before I let you do that. Marley. I'm sorry. I am really sorry. Please forgive me.
Marley: Forgive you? I suppose that's what Donna wants, too. Just a little "I'm sorry," and then we push everything under the rug? Forget it, Vicky.
Vicky: Where are you going?
Marley: I am getting out of here. I am going to pack my things and I am leaving.
Vicky: Marley! You can't do this. Not after everything we've been through. We need each other.
Marley: No, Vicky, I thought during this trial that things had changed for us. I thought you really cared about me. And I thought you truly loved me.
Vicky: I do.
Marley: Not enough to tell the truth. And that's not good enough.
Vicky: Don't do this.
Marley: I don't want to see you again.
John: I know, but if I'm stuck in the hospital --
Sharlene: I -- no, no. I'll go see Donna tomorrow. And Michael. And maybe -- maybe I can get Mike to go to the hospital with me. I want to be there after your operation.
John: Sharlene, I don't want you to have to take all this on your shoulders.
Sharlene: I'm fine. Look, no one's going to feel any better if you lose this chance. Now you've waited a long time to walk without your cane. You've got to do this.
John: You're right. I love you.
Sharlene: How about some coffee?
John: Sure, but I have to make some calls for Mike first.
Sharlene: All right, go ahead. I'll bring it in to you.
John: You are the best. No doubt about it.
Taylor: Sharlene... why didn't you talk to John about resuming therapy?
Sharlene: Because I'm not.
Sharlene: I've changed my mind.[Yells again] So
Taylor: I don't understand. I thought you agreed therapy was necessary.
Sharlene: Taylor, for months John stood by me. He waited for me, he believed in me. He needs me now. And I'm not going to let anything take precedence over that.
Taylor: You could start therapy without telling him.
Sharlene: No, I couldn't. I don't want to keep things from John. Besides, my focus would be all split.
Taylor: Do you understand how serious this is?
Sharlene: I'll be fine. Look, I'll get through this. And maybe I will go back to therapy later, but not right now. Right now, I'm going to keep things together for my husband and my baby.
Taylor: Well, I tried.
Sharlene: Taylor, please say you understand.
Taylor: Oh, I do. Perfectly.
Stacey: Maybe we shouldn't talk about Mikey's case now.
Michael: This isn't about Mikey. This is about Donna and Jake. Why don't you tell me the truth?
Stacey: All right, I... I knew.
Michael: How? How did you know? Donna wouldn't tell you.
Stacey: I was preparing the Millers' case and I ran across a videotape of Donna.
Michael: What videotape?
Stacey: It was her. Just talking into a camera. And she admitted that she -- she admitted that she'd been with Jake.
Michael: Donna made a videotape?
Stacey: She didn't know it was being filmed. I think Jake was going to use it as some kind of blackmail.
Michael: And you got ahold of this videotape.
Stacey: I gave it back to her after she agreed to give up Mikey.
Michael: Oh, I see. During the hearing, when things weren't going your way, you decided to just play a little dirty, right?
Stacey: I wanted her to know about it before I introduced it as evidence.
Michael: You're no better than Jake.
Stacey: Michael, I never wanted you to get hurt.
Michael: How did you think I would feel when they took my son away?
Stacey: Mikey belonged with the Millers.
Michael: I didn't think so, Stacey. My family didn't think so. The Judge didn't think so. Only you thought so.
Stacey: The tape would have changed how they felt.
Michael: Did it ever occur to you that Donna might have shot Jake? Turns out she had a damn good reason. When Marley was arrested, didn't you think that might be a good time to bring that tape forward?
Stacey: I talked to Donna about it.
Michael: Oh, and she convinced you to keep quiet?
Stacey: I told her that I would not hide anything if I thought it would help Marley.
Michael: And you thought that tape wouldn't?
Stacey: Michael, I'm sorry.
Michael: When we flew to Utah to find out about Jake's women, why did you do that? Out of guilt?
Stacey: I did it to help Marley.
Michael: The truth would have helped Marley.
Stacey: I didn't know for sure that she shot Jake. I only suspected.
Michael: But you believed that Marley was innocent! And you kept quiet. You let my little girl suffer. You let Morgan and Cass tear her apart. You know, for months, I've been asking myself why I had to say good-bye to my little boy. And now it turns out it was all because of you.
Stacey: That was between you and Donna --
Michael: No, Stacey --
Stacey: And it always was!
Michael: It's you. 'Cause you knew. You were my friend.
Stacey: Michael, I tried to be your friend.
Michael: You're no friend of mine. Get out of here.
Stacey: Michael --
Michael: Get out of here.
Donna: Then it's true? I've really lost all of you?
Vicky: Oh, mother, I can't believe you're still only thinking about yourself.
Donna: Have you seen Marley?
Vicky: Of course, I've seen Marley.
Donna: How is she?
Vicky: How is she? How the hell do you think she is? She's dandy! She's got a real rosy outlook on life, and now thanks to you, she hates me almost as much as she hates you.
Donna: Victoria --
Vicky: You're gonna hear this. Because everything that happened, happened because I kept your ugly secret.
Donna: I thought you understood.
Vicky: Do you know...what you did today by playing hero? You destroyed our family.
Donna: I know what I did. You don't have to read my sins to me. Maybe you'll all just be better off without me.
Vicky: Maybe we will. Do you know what gets me? The first night, we were all at the police station. And you didn't have an alibi. You swore up and down to us that you did not go after Jake. And I believed you. I didn't believe my sister. I believed you.
Donna: You should have believed Marley.
Vicky: But you were so convincing. I guess you've had a lot of practice.
Donna: Yes, I guess I have.
Vicky: God, Dad couldn't even tell the difference, but then, why would he think that you would jump into the sack with a slime --
Donna: All right, Victoria. Stop it.
Vicky: I'm leaving.
Donna: Fine. Have you seen your father?
Vicky: He's not going to stop by here, if that's what you're wondering.
Donna: No, I didn't expect that he would.
Vicky: One good thing has come out of this.
Donna: Yes, it has. Marley's not in prison.
Vicky: No, not that. Do you remember the time that I told you that Marley was the lucky one? Because she didn't have to grow up without you? She didn't have a mother. But she got the chance to be close to you. But I realized today that the lucky one is me.
Amanda: [Sighs] Olivia is all over him.
Ada: Sam doesn't seem to mind. I wish you didn't.
Amanda: You're right. It's none of my business.
Ada: That's my girl.
Amanda: This is going to get easier, isn't it?
Olivia: Or the other thing we could do is have dessert at home?
Sam: Mm, home, excellent idea. I'll get the check.
Olivia: I'll meet you at the elevators. I just want to freshen up.
Olivia: I am so glad you're here.
Caroline: Do you want more advice?
Olivia: Nuh-uh! Everything is going perfectly. He can't wait to get me home now.
Caroline: Well, that is what we expected.
Olivia: Oh, you know what? He hasn't even looked at Amanda once, not once, since he came back to the table. I just hope I can keep this up.
Caroline: Of course, you can. You are a beautiful young lady. Don't be intimidated by Amanda. Now why would he open up old wounds when he can have a great time with you?
Olivia: Well, sometimes it's a little hard to keep his attention.
Caroline: Well, you've got to make him realize what he's got.
Olivia: How do I do that? What do you mean?
Caroline: Well, he's got to learn how to appreciate you.
Olivia: Well, how do I do it?
Caroline: What about having one of those working dinners, with one of those lovely young men from the ballet company? Mm-hmm.
Olivia: You mean to make him jealous?
Caroline: Yes, why not? Now, look great when you leave, and don't come home too early.
Olivia: I like it. I like it.
Caroline: That will keep him thinking.
Olivia: That's right, absolutely. If he doesn't have any time to even think about Amanda, he'll be too worried about me. That will work.
Caroline: [Clears throat]
Sharlene: Did you talk to Cass?
John: Stacey's going to resent Donna.
Sharlene: How's Michael?
John: I haven't called him yet. Thought I'd give him a little more time. [Sighs] You know, when I think about it, I realize how much we have. I'm so grateful that you're here, that I can come home to you and sleep next to you every night.
Sharlene: I feel the same way.
John: This house was so empty when you were gone.
Sharlene: Well, now there's going to be a baby to fill it up.
John: And I can't wait.
Sharlene: Neither can I.
Taylor: All symptoms indicate heavy denial on the part of the patient. I would be remiss if I allowed this unstable woman to destroy such a sensitive, wonderful man as John. If Sharlene continues to reject help, I will have no choice but to engineer a breakthrough.
Caroline: Oh, Amanda! Darling, we didn't hear you come in.
Amanda: Cut the act, Caroline. I heard everything that you said. Looks like I got here just in time.
Olivia: Is something bothering you, Amanda?
Caroline: I think I'll leave you two to chat. Ciao.
Amanda: I don't like seeing Sam manipulated.
Olivia: Oh, really? You didn't seem to mind it when Evan was around.
Amanda: You love playing the innocent, don't you?
Olivia: [Pops lips] Amanda, why do you care what I do?
Amanda: I don't. It's sad. You want him to think that you're so naive. And you know every trick in the book.
Olivia: Well, if I don't, I'm trying to learn them.
Amanda: Because it's the only way you can keep Sam?
Olivia: I'll fight to hang onto him. I don't really care how.
Amanda: I threaten you that much?
Olivia: No, not you. What you and Sam used to have.
Amanda: You really think this is being fair to Sam?
Olivia: Amanda, why don't you get yourself a new little boyfriend and just leave Sam alone?
Amanda: Why don't I tell Sam about your little plot to make him jealous?
Olivia: Because he wouldn't believe you. He would just think you were trying to interfere and make trouble, and he'd be absolutely right.
Amanda: But at least he would know the truth about you.
Olivia: Amanda, read my lips. Sam doesn't trust you anymore. He doesn't believe anything that you say. And that is all your fault.
Amanda: Sam and I had a child together. We were married.
Olivia: Yes, you did all that. Now you're divorced. Ok? And even if I were out of the picture completely, he would never go back to you, because he doesn't love you anymore. And he never will.
Jamie: Marley, I'm sorry it had to be like this.
Marley: I can't talk about it right now.
Jamie: At least you're free.
Marley: Free. Right.
Jamie: I don't know how Donna could do this. I can't believe it.
Marley: It wasn't just Donna.
Jamie: What do you mean?
Marley: Vicky knew... about Jake and Donna.
Jamie: Vicky knew?
Marley: And she thought that I was the one who shot Jake, and I thought that she was the one who did, which is why I did what I did.
Jamie: I know.
Marley: We only hurt each other by keeping quiet. Everything went wrong. Everything.
Jamie: Marley, you have to get some rest. Let me take care of you.
Marley: Jamie, I can't do that. I don't want to be taken care of ever again. I can't be with you. I can't be with anyone.
Jamie: Marley, this is no time to be alone.
Marley: Jamie, I just can't think...with you worrying about me.
Jamie: Marley, we love each other. Please don't make it more complicated.
Marley: I did not make it complicated. Vicky did. And Jake did. And my mother did. I just need to go over everything again, and I am going to find some way to sort through all of this anger.
Jamie: Maybe you should spend some time with your dad. You're both probably feeling a lot of the same --
Marley: I don't want to be with my father. Please just give me a couple of days!
Jamie: I hate this. But if it's what you want --
Marley: It is.
What are you thinking?
Jamie: About Donna. I don't understand how a mother could do this to her own child. Why did she waste so much time? Why didn't she tell the truth sooner?
Marley: She's the only one who can answer that.
