[Telephone ringing]

John: Hello. Yes, it is. No, she's not. Um, I'm not sure. She -- all right. Yeah, sure. Ok, I'll tell her.

Sharlene?

Sharlene: You're still here.

John: What are you doing here? I thought you were in the park. What happened?

Sharlene: John, you won't believe it, you won't -- we were walking by the boat pond, I turn around, and there's Taylor.

John: What was she doing there?

Sharlene: Following me. She's following me, I know she was. John, I don't know if I'm paranoid. What is it, is it just coincidence? She's a doctor, what's she doing in the park in the middle of the day?

John: Sharlene, calm down, come on.

Sharlene: Does she have patients, John? Does she have a practice?

John: Yes, of course she does. We'll figure this out together. How's Gregory?

Sharlene: He's ok. He's fine.

Sharlene: You don't think she knows what we're doing, do you?

John: No, I don’t. But she's awfully smart. I don't want her figuring it out.

Sharlene: Taylor?

Taylor: Hello, Sharlene.

Sharlene: What are you doing here?

Taylor: Don't worry, Sharlene, I have absolutely no intention of upsetting you. I can see I've done that enough already.

Grant: I tried to reach you this afternoon.

Paulina: You did?

Grant: Where were you?

Paulina: At the gym.

Grant: Ha, you? You were at the gym?

Paulina: Yes, I was at the gym.

Grant: You mean to tell me that you were flaunting this gorgeous body on those poor slobs who are all sweating around there? Did you have fun?

Paulina: No, I didn't, I hate to exercise.

Grant: What's wrong?

Paulina: Nothing.

Grant: Look, I know that something is bothering you. You just haven't -- you just haven't gotten the message yet, have you? I love you.

Paulina: It's Jake.

Grant: What about him?

Paulina: He has to get out of Bay City, Grant.

Grant: Why?

Paulina: Before it's too late.

Grant: Too late for Jake? Too late for you?

Rachel: I would like to know if there are any more sizable checks coming through written on Paulina Cory’s account. Rachel Cory. Yes, I'll talk to him. Yes, he knows my number. Right, thank you.

[Doorbell rings]

Rachel: Hello, Jake.

Jake: You wanted to see me?

Rachel: Yes, come in.

Jake: These are for you.

Rachel: I don't want those.

Jake: I'm grateful.

Rachel: Why?

Jake: For the invitation. No one's invited me anywhere since I got out of the hospital.

Rachel: This isn't a social call, Jake.

Jake: I should have known .

Rachel: I'll get right to the point.

Jake: Ok.

Rachel: Why did Paulina write you a check for $10,000?

John: Why are you here?

Taylor: To return your books.

Sharlene: What books?

Taylor: John loaned them to me when you were out of town. I was cleaning out my office this morning and I found them.

John: I'll take 'em.

Taylor: I found them very interesting, particularly the one on Jung.

John: Sharlene tells me she saw you at the park.

Taylor: Yes, Gregory enjoy his walk?

John: Taylor.

Taylor: Did seeing me upset you so much?

Sharlene: What were you doing there?

Taylor: Taking a short cut.

Sharlene: What?

Taylor: Maybe John hasn't told you, but I have a consulting job the other side of the park. The mental health clinic.

John: I told you to stay away from Sharlene.

Taylor: Stay away -- John, I was simply taking my normal route to work. I had no idea Sharlene was going to be there.

Sharlene: You are everywhere I go.

Taylor: Look, I am sorry if her emotional state is so fragile that a glimpse of me can trigger a paranoid --

John: Stop it, Taylor.

Taylor: Stop what?

John: I want you to leave.

Taylor: I understand completely.

John: And stay away.

Taylor: That's why I'm returning the books. I will do my best to break all ties. As I predicted, Sharlene’s emotional state and her grasp of reality are slowly being --

[Phone rings] I'll get it. Hello. Yes, it is.

John: Taylor, you have to leave.

Taylor: Are you sure you can handle her? She seems so agitated.

Sharlene: That's, that's great. If I have any trouble with that, I'll call back. Thank you.

Taylor: Sharlene, I am sorry. I had no idea you would react like this.

Sharlene: You won't win.

Taylor: Win? John, thank you very much for the books. We will never agree with you about the Freudians.

Sharlene: She's trying to drive me crazy -- hmm?

John: Hey, stay away from her. Ok? If I'm not around, you don't let her in the house.

Sharlene: I won’t.

John: Just relax.

John: Was that Roger Frank that was on the phone?

Sharlene: It was his assistant. How did you know?

John: I thought it might be. He had called before.

Sharlene: You don't think Taylor knew who I was talking to, do you?

John: No, no, I don't think so.

Sharlene: Good, good. Ok. Roger Frank is going to be at the hospital. This evening he's touring the lab there.

John: All right. I'll speak to him tonight.

Sharlene: John, I think I should go, you know, because what if he doesn't remember me?

John: What are we going to do about Gregory?

Sharlene: Uh, uh -- I'll get Jenna.

John: Ok.

Sharlene: Felicia said that she wants to start sitting, get some money, and she seems reliable, she does. So I'll just try to get him calmed down before she gets here, and then there probably won't be any trouble --

John: You calm down.

Sharlene: I want to be there. I have to make sure we get proof that Taylor’s been lying.

Matt: You can't even tell me who this Lorna woman was.

Dean: She was a producer who liked my music, Matt.

Matt: Big time hype, small time records.

Dean: Gimme a break. You didn't even give the woman a chance to see what she could do for us, did you?

Matt: That's right, because I don't want you to sell your soul, and our business, to the first pretty face that comes walking --

Dean: Matt, have you ever heard of fate? Have you? It knocks on the door, if you don't answer the door --

Matt: I'm not waiting for fate. I'm going out there and getting it.

Dean: Right, right.

Matt: We're pounding the pavement, we're sending your tape out. That's what we're doing.

Dean: Where are all these big music-mogul guys that are dying to hear my music?

Matt: They'll be here sooner or later.

Dean: Matt, nobody's pounding down our door, man.

Matt: We're starting a music business. Give it some time.

Dean: I don't have time! Especially with you sticking your nose up in the air every time someone notices that you're a Cory.

Jenna: Hey, hey, hey, you guys, please stop.

Dean: You don't get that, do you?

Matt: Hi, Jenna

Dean: Dude, you know, you are sitting up on that hill the whole time.

Matt: What are you saying, Dean?

Dean: That Matt Cory, this is a little project for Matt Cory, ok?

Matt: This is not a project.

Jenna: D&M Studio, this is Jenna.

Dean: Come on, send a fax over, get me my trust fund money, buy a little equipment. If it works out, great. If it fails, then --

Matt: Hey, if this fails, I fail.

Dean: So what? It's not your music, is it? It's not. It's just money and you got plenty of that where it comes from. This is my whole life, man.

Matt: Just money? Yeah, that's exactly what it is. I didn't even earn that money. You know how that makes me feel?

Dean: Yeah, I could live with it.

Matt: It makes me feel like it's not even mine, like I'm stealing it, like it's Cory money. I'm not even a Cory!

Dean: I'm sorry, man, I went too far.

Matt: If I blow this deal, I lose as much as you do. If you can't understand that, we can't work together.

Jenna: Hey, I think I might have some good news.

Matt: Sorry about this.

Dean: Not as sorry as you'll be when we find out this Lorna chick got bought out by the Japanese.

Jenna: Have you, uh, heard of National Records?

Dean: Who hasn't?

Jenna: That was the secretary to the chairman -- someone named Nat Lipman.

Matt: We sent them the demo weeks ago.

Jenna: That's what she said.

Matt: Why didn't you let me talk to her?

Jenna: Well, I thought I should get off the phone before she asked me about the noise.

Dean: What did she say? What did she say?

Jenna: That Mr. Lipman wants you to know that he's going to send someone over to listen to your stuff.

Matt: He's coming here?

Jenna: Yeah.

Matt: When?

Jenna: Uh, she didn't say. Or maybe she did and I couldn't hear.

Matt: Oh man, I have been trying to get National to check us out for months.

Dean: They heard the tape, they heard my tape.

Matt: Ah ha, I told you. Did I tell you? I told you. All right.

Dean: All right, all right.

Matt: 200 phone calls, 65 demo tapes. Finally!

Jenna: It's wonderful. Congratulations.

Matt: You know, I told you, I told you that pounding the pavement is going to pay off. And you know what the best part is? We do it on our terms. Yes.

Grant: Did Jake threaten you or something?

Paulina: No.

Grant: Then what is it? Why -- why did you say it was so important for him to leave town before it was too late?

Paulina: He scares me, Grant.

Grant: Paulina, what can he do?

Paulina: He can hurt my family, for one thing.

Grant: How?

Paulina: By just being here. He's messing up Marley’s life. He's acting like nothing took place between them.

Grant: But Jamie is taking care of Marley. You told me that they were engaged.

Paulina: Yes, they are trying to plan a wedding. They would like to forget all about Jake, but he won't let them, and he is following them around and I'm afraid he's going to do something to them.

Grant: Why? Did you see him again today?

Paulina: Yes, he came up to me at the gym.

Grant: What did he want?

Paulina: I'm not sure.

Grant: I mean, do you think he still has a thing for you, or what?

Paulina: No, no, I don't think that's it.

Grant: Then why don't you just stay away from him?

Paulina: I try, Grant. You see, I'm the only one that was nice to him, so he keeps -- he keeps pestering me. This afternoon he was asking me questions about Jamie and Marley.

Grant: What kind of questions?

Paulina: Personal ones.

Grant: Like what? What, what did he want to know?

Paulina: He wanted to know about the wedding.

Grant: Why?

Paulina: I don't know. But if he uses me to hurt Marley and Jamie, I will never forgive myself.

Grant: Look, how about if I talk to him?

Paulina: About what?

Grant: To tell him to stay away from you and the Corys.

Paulina: It's not going to work. He won't listen, not even to you. Wait a minute, maybe there is something you can do.

Grant: What?

Paulina: Well, he wanted me to talk to you.

Grant: What do you mean?

Paulina: When I told him that I was going out with you, right away he wanted me to ask you to help him.

Grant: So what did you say to him?

Paulina: I said never. I said I wouldn't do that to you.

Grant: Wait a minute, maybe, maybe that's not such a bad idea.

Paulina: Forget it. I hate talking to you about this.

Grant: Look, I can make a few phone calls. You said he needs a job, right? Maybe I can find him one, someplace far, far away.

Paulina: You know he is pretty good at making videos. Even Iris liked them.

Grant: Ha! Well, now, there's a recommendation from hell. This is really what you want, for Jake to go?

Paulina: Yes.

Grant: You are absolutely sure?

Paulina: Grant, I've never been more sure about anything in my life.

Grant: All right, in that case, I will do all of my constituents a favor and get rid of Jake McKinnon once and for all.

Mark: No, now you can't decide until I show you the rest of the outdoor shots. I'm going to develop them right now.

Amanda: I don't have time for that. Just show me what you have, I'll make a decision.

Mark: Well, how about, uh, going out with me. You want to decide about that, too? Hmmm?

Amanda: I'm afraid that one's already been made.

Mark: Well, from the tone of your voice it doesn't sound too promising.

Amanda: Mark, I can't go out with you.

Mark: Was it something I said?

Amanda: No, it's something you did. You work here, it never works out.

Mark: It doesn't have to work out. I mean, I'm talking about a movie, you know? Maybe dinner -- four hours max, that's it. Over and done, no strings attached, no strings.

Amanda: No strings.

Mark: No strings.

Amanda: I come with strings 10 miles long.

Mark: Well, I mean, you, I like that about you.

Amanda: Mark.

Mark: All right, I'm serious, I'm being serious.

Amanda: I'm not looking for a fling. And even if I was, when would we ever find the time?

Mark: Oh, we'd find the time.

Amanda: Between 5:00 and 6:00 before my daughter wakes up?

Mark: Ok, why don't we talk about this problem over dinner? What do you say?

Amanda: Not tonight.

Mark: What's wrong with tonight?

Amanda: Tonight is part of today. It -- you, you don't want to hear about it.

Mark: No, no I'd rather stay here and develop film until three o'clock in the morning all by myself.

Amanda: My day was not what romantic dinners are made of.

Mark: Listen, we can go see that new movie.

Amanda: We could talk about how everybody is on my case about nailing Carl Hutchins in our magazine. Or, how furious my mother is with me on how much space I took up on it. Or, we could talk about how now I have to replace Sam.

Mark: What do you mean? Sam's not coming back?

Amanda: No, he's not. Anyway, see?

Mark: Hmm. Sounds tough.

Amanda: Strange, you know, all of a sudden he just isn't here. I try explaining this to my daughter, and how can I do that? I don't even understand it.

Mark: Well, I mean, at least she has you.

Amanda: You see, that's part of the trouble. It's all I can do to raise her and care for her the way I want to and still do my job. I hope you understand.

Mark: Hey, like I said, I don't mind strings.

Amanda: And I haven't been divorced for very long.

Mark: Ok, ok. Forget it, you win.

Amanda: Mark, if I went out with you, nobody would take me seriously.

Take that one.

Mark: No, I'll get you the other contact sheet tonight, not that one.

Amanda: Why? This one's fine.

Mark: No, it's not. It's lousy, it's terrible.

Amanda: What's wrong with it?

Mark: Well, of its kind, it's fine. There's nothing really wrong with it. I mean, it's professional. I mean, I took it. But it's -- it's safe.

Amanda: My new image.

Mark: Yeah, safe and professional. You know, it barely hints at the fact that the publisher of "Sophisticate" magazine is a very beautiful and exciting woman.

Amanda: Send it to the Art department.

Mark: Amanda.

Amanda: One thing that I learned in this job, publishers’ decisions are always final.

Dean: Well, when do you think this guy is going to show up, man?

Matt: Jenna said they didn't say.

Dean: We can call -- let's call her at Sharlene’s, maybe she forgot to tell us something.

Matt: No, no, we have to concentrate on getting ready here.

Dean: Well, are we ready, man? I mean, what if the guy wants a song from me? Matt, what if he wants to give us a contract today?

Matt: I don't know, just concentrate on your music. Let me do the talking.

Dean: All right, so you want -- I'll shut up? I'll just shut up and I'll run all the equipment, ok?

Matt: No, but I don't want you handing your music over to this guy just because he happens to be with National Records.

Dean: The biggest distributor and promoter of major talent in the entire country.

Matt: That's right.

Dean: Go ahead, play hard ball, all right?

Matt: Hey, hey, hey -- we're offering great stuff. You're good, Dean.

Dean: To this guy I'm nobody.

Matt: We're professionals, we see what he says, then we negotiate.

Dean: Negotiate, negotiate. Start a bidding war. With all those other backers that we don't have, we'll end up with nothing.

Matt: I trust your instincts, you've got to trust mine.

[Knock on door]

Man: Matt Cory? I'm Walter Hall, National Records.

Jake: I really appreciate this.

Rachel: No trouble.

Jake: I started drinking tea in the hospital. It was the safest thing on the menu.

[Clanking of teapot]

Jake: This is really something else, I mean, the china, and this house.

Rachel: Why did Paulina give you $10,000, Jake?

Jake: What does she say about it?

Rachel: I'm more interested in your explanation.

Jake: I don't think I should be talking about this.

Rachel: Why not?

Jake: Because it's between me and Paulina.

Rachel: What is between you and Paulina?

Jake: This really makes me uncomfortable talking about this. I mean, after all, she is your stepdaughter.

Rachel: She talked about you while you were in the hospital.

Jake: Yeah? What did she say?

Rachel: That you slept with her and then dropped her and now she's giving you money?

Jake: I really don't care what Paulina said. I mean, she's a friend of mine, she helped me out.

Rachel: I'll bet.

Jake: I have no job, no income, I have bills up the –

I know a lot of people think that I deserve this. Rachel, I'm trying to get my job back at Paradise.

Rachel: Well, it must be rough.

Jake: Yeah, you come out of a coma and you find that all your friends hate you.

Rachel: All with the exception of Paulina.

Jake: Paulina has been decent enough to talk to me.

Rachel: And why is that, Jake?

Jake: I don't know. Maybe she's a nice person, or maybe she feels sorry for me.

Rachel: Sorry? That's an awful lot of sorry, $10,000's worth of sorry?

Jake: Rachel.

Rachel: Why won't you answer my question?

Jake: Because I don't know why you're grilling me.

Rachel: What did you do to make Paulina pay you $10,000, Jake? Why don't you be honest with me?

Sharlene: Darling.

John: Hi, did you get in touch with Jenna?

Sharlene: Yeah, I did. She's there and I hope she's ok with infants because she did seem a little nervous. I forgot to give her the number...

John: Why don't you go and call and I'll wait here? Then we'll try to track down Roger Frank, hopefully get him to agree to a deposition just in case Taylor decides to go to the Ethics committee.

Sharlene: Well, let's hope he remembers me.

John: Yeah.

Sharlene: Be right back.

John: All right.

Man: Excuse me, aren't you one of the doctors who treated Grant Harrison?

John: That's right, I'm John Hudson.

Man: Hi -- Roger Frank.

John: Really? I mean, I knew you were going to be here to take a look at the lab.

Roger: That's right. Listen, would it be all right if I interviewed you?

John: Well, sure. Just out of curiosity, who else have you spoken with?

Roger: Uh --

John: Oh, uh, Roger --

Roger: Hello.

Sharlene: Hello, Roger, I'm not sure you remember me.

Roger: How could I forget? You got me in a lot of trouble.

Jake: It was you, Paulina. It was you. The stuff I found at the adoption agency that proved that you weren't Mac’s daughter -- that was the little project I was working on for Iris. I was just getting ready to hand that over to her and you found out about it, and you came here and you shot me.

Paulina: Please don't call the police. It's not going to help you, and it will kill me. I'll give you anything that you want -- oh, you name it. You want me to beg, I'll beg.

Jake: When I figure out what I want from you, I'll let you know.

Grant: Hmm.

Paulina: What did you find out?

Grant: That your worries about Jake may be over.

Paulina: What, really?

Grant: For a fact.

Paulina: Oh, Grant. Tell me, tell me.

Grant: I just talked to one of my staff, and I told him about Jake, so they're coming up with a list of jobs.

Paulina: Out of Bay City?

Grant: Well, they mentioned Utah.

Paulina: Utah? Jake in Utah?

Grant: Do you think he'll do it?

Paulina: I don't know. Maybe -- I mean, if the price is right, he'll do anything.

Grant: We'll make the price just right.

Paulina: Grant, you don't mind me asking you to help him out?

Grant: Mm-mm. I don't mind at all. As a matter of fact, I think it's probably the best thing for the Corys, the best thing for you, and the best thing for little Jakey-boy.

Paulina: You are so wonderful.

Grant: And if we can get Jake out of town, out of Bay City, I just might get Rachel Cory’s vote.

Paulina: I wouldn't count on that one.

Grant: She's never been too crazy about me, has she?

Paulina: It's us, us she's not crazy about.

Grant: You and me, like this.

Paulina: Like this.

Grant: I'm not good enough for you, is that it?

Paulina: She thinks you'll take advantage of me.

Grant: She'll get over it, once we get Jake out of the way. And I will tell her that it is your idea.

Paulina: She'd thank me, wouldn't she? She would say, "Paulina, you finally did the right thing."

Grant: But you always do the right thing.

Paulina: Let's go tell her.

Grant: Now?

Paulina: No, well, ok, not now, but later tonight. Don't you think it's a good idea?

Grant: Well, you mean, let's see, fixing fences and building bridges with Rachel Cory? Paulina, you're such a political animal.

Paulina: Political animal?

Grant: Mm-hmm, just like me. And I want us to go right straight to the top.

Rachel: Well, that's terrific, Nat. You didn't really have to go to all that trouble. Well, I do really appreciate it. They are just starting out. No, thank you. All right, yes, I'll talk to you soon. Next board meeting. Right. Bye.

Jake: So, is this the room where Marley and Jamie are going to be married?

Rachel: Well, that subject is off limits to you, Jake.

Jake: It's definitely a beautiful room.

Rachel: So, Paulina gave you this money because she felt sorry for you?

Jake: It's really what I believe.

Rachel: That was after you led her on, after you were engaged to Marley.

Jake: After I was in a coma for a couple of months.

Rachel: I see.

Jake: Is it really that hard to believe?

Rachel: Yes.

Jake: Maybe Paulina is a bigger person than you think she is. Maybe she remembers what it feels like to be on bottom.

Rachel: And maybe she's forgotten all the horrible things you've done.

Jake: I've done a lot of horrible things. Nobody knows that better than me. But I think that Paulina believes that I've changed.

Rachel: I see, and that's why you asked her for all that money?

Jake: I didn't ask her for the money, Rachel, she gave it to me.

Rachel: Well, you see, that's what I think I don't believe.

Jake: Well, it's true.

Rachel: You've taken advantage of her before, Jake. Maybe you're doing that again?

Jake: You're wrong. I'm doing everything I can to change what I've done.

Rachel: So that's why you took the money?

Jake: Well, maybe she's in a position now where she's lucky enough to help me out. I would do the same thing for her.

Rachel: Yeah, I keep forgetting you want to change. So, you want your friends back, you want your job back.

Jake: I promise you I mean that.

Rachel: You want to change your life.

Jake: Yeah, I do.

Rachel: Well, why don't you start now? Why don't you just be honest with me? What do you think you have on Paulina?

Matt: We want to start by recording some of Dean's tunes, getting his music out there, seeing what happens.

Dean: Yeah. So, uh, what do you think?

Walter: So far? I'm pretty impressed.

Dean: Really? Huh, wow, likes my music.

Walter: I'm surprised myself. I came here on orders from Lipman.

Matt: What?

Walter: Yeah. I sure wasn't banking on hearing great music.

Matt: I thought you heard Dean's tape. How do you know about us?

Walter: You know how it works. My boss, your Mom are pals.

Matt: They are, huh?

Dean: Whoa, you meant what you said about the tunes, though, right?

Matt: I'm sorry, we don't work this way.

Dean: Now, hold on a minute.

Matt: No, I really appreciate you coming by, I really do, but we want people to know us, know the music. I'm sorry, maybe some other time.

Dean: He said he liked our music, Matt. Right? I can't believe this. I can't believe this. You are out of your mind, man.

Matt: Dean.

Dean: A guy from National Records, Matt, says that he likes my music and you throw him out of the door?

Matt: The only reason why he came over here is because his boss is a friend of my mother’s.

Dean: So what?

Matt: He never even heard your tape.

Dean: Matt, they have 10,000 tapes a day they can listen to. They don't have to listen to our music. Where are you going?

Matt: I'm going to see my Mom.

Dean: Don't do that, man, you're going to say something stupid. She was just trying to help us.

Matt: No, she's got to get it through her head that this music business has nothing to do with Cory. It's mine.

Jake: Rachel --

Amanda: Mom -- Jake.

Rachel: Yes, Amanda.

Jake: Hello, Amanda.

Rachel: You want to speak to me?

Amanda: Yes, um, advertising sent this over, they need a signature and the messenger is coming tom pick it up.

Rachel: Excuse me, Jake, don't go away, I want to finish the conversation.

Jake: Sure.

Amanda: What are you doing here?

Jake: Your mother invited me.

Amanda: Why?

Jake: I think you should speak to her about that.

Amanda: Does Marley know you're here?

Jake: I don't think so, but I wish she did.

John: Well, what do you mean she got you in trouble?

Roger: It was at that dinner for Dr. Frame -- went to that store you told me about.

Sharlene: I gave you the name.

Roger: Beau Marché. And unfortunately I found the earrings.

Sharlene: What?

Roger: They were too heavy for my wife, she went back to exchange them for a lighter and much more expensive pair.

Sharlene: I'm sorry.

Roger: Well, Marché owes you 10%.

John: Roger, could we talk off the record?

Roger: Sure, why?

John: Listen, this may sound a little strange, but would you mind putting the conversation about the earrings on paper?

Roger: What do you mean?

John: There's an issue before the Ethics committee here.

Roger: I don't understand.

John: Someone on staff is questioning Sharlene’s integrity.

Sharlene: Roger, one of the things that's being said is that I offered you more than the name of a store.

Roger: You're kidding.

John: No. Look, if it goes further than this, I'll explain.

Roger: Sure, if it helps, I'll be glad to say what happened.

Sharlene: Thank you very much.

John: Thank you.

Roger: I should be at the lab. I do want to set up an interview with you.

John: Absolutely, I'll be in touch. Thanks again.

Roger: See you.

Sharlene: He'll do it. He'll give us proof. Taylor, Taylor made up this whole thing so that I would think that Sharly's back.

John: Listen, uh, I'm due in the O.R.

Sharlene: What's wrong? It always comes back to the same thing. No matter what, it's always your word against hers.

Jenna: Oh, gosh, don't worry. Your supper will be ready soon. Your Mom said you'd stay asleep.

[Doorbell rings]

Jenna: Come on. It's ok.

Yes.

Taylor: Oh, hello. Is Sharlene here?

Jenna: Is she expecting you?

Taylor: I'm Dr. Benson -- uh, Taylor Benson. I work at the hospital, I'm a friend of John and Sharlene’s.

Jenna: Oh yeah, well, they're not here.

Taylor: Well, I just dropped by to leave this little present and check in on Gregory.

Jenna: Oh, uh, ok, sure. I'll tell them.

Taylor: How's he doing?

Jenna: Oh, uh --

[Bell rings] Oh, that's his bottle. I really have to go.

Taylor: Is he fussing?

Jenna: Well, yeah, he was crying earlier, but I think it's because he's hungry.

Taylor: Well, you'd better get that bottle, then. That's what Sharlene always does.

Jenna: Yeah.

Taylor: Would you, would you like to take him? Then you would have both your hands free at the stove. Sometimes babies can be a little difficult to manage.

Jenna: Ok.

Taylor: It's ok, baby.

Jenna: Thanks, I'll be right back.

Taylor: Take your time.

Jenna: Ok.

Taylor: You'll be fine, right here with me.

Jake: You probably don't want to talk to me about Marley.

Amanda: No. And I am very surprised to see you here.

Jake: Your mother invited me here, she even made tea for me.

Amanda: Why? Why are you here?

Jake: You know, Sam used to talk to me about living here.

Amanda: Sam talked to you.

Jake: Yeah. We had a lot in common, we both grew up with nothing and we married women that, uh -- didn't know what that was like.

Amanda: That used to drive Sam crazy.

Jake: Tell me about it, he used to drive me crazy, too.

Amanda: He wanted to do it all on his own.

Jake: Now, that is crazy.

Amanda: When you were with Marley, you didn't use her money.

Jake: No. Maybe I should have. Maybe I shouldn't have been so proud.

Amanda: Why?

Jake: I don't know, I was always trying to make a buck, impress the family. You know, I probably should have just worked on loving her.

Amanda: Well, money's weird, can really mess a lot of things up.

Jake: I wish I'd have known that when I was talking to Sam.

Amanda: Sam is in Europe.

Jake: How long?

Amanda: Oh, I don't know, maybe to stay.

Jake: It's not what you wanted, is it?

Amanda: I guess I really didn't know what I wanted. Neither did you.

Jake: It's easy to know what you want, Amanda, when you've lost it all.

Matt: What are you doing here? Where's Mom?

Amanda: Why? What's wrong?

Matt: Just tell me where Mom is, ok?

Amanda: She's in the library.

Jake: Guess he's got a problem.

Amanda: Sounds like Mom's going to get one, too.

Jenna: Ok. Here, I'll take him.

Taylor: Oh, he's so adorable. Do you baby sit for him often?

Jenna: This is the first time.

Taylor: Mm. I'm sorry, I don't even know your name.

Jenna: Oh, Jenna.

Taylor: Jenna, you take very good care of him. I was impressed that you didn't let me in until you knew my name.

Jenna: Thank you.

Taylor: Would you ever be interested in working at the hospital as a candy striper? I'd be happy to recommend you.

Jenna: Oh -- great, thanks. Um, I really should give him his bottle.

Taylor: Oh, of course.

Jenna: Ok.

[Doorbell rings]

Taylor: Why don't you get the door?

Jenna: Dean.

Dean: I've got to talk to you.

Jenna: Well, not now, it's a terrible time, I have to feed the baby.

Dean: Yeah, you're never going to believe what Matt just did.

Jenna: This is my friend, Dean Frame. This is Dr. Benson.

Dean: Nice to meet you.

Taylor: Hello. I really better be getting back to the hospital.

Jenna: Ok, well, I'll tell them that you came by.

Taylor: Goodbye, Gregory. Woops, hold on, let me turn him around. There you go. Oh, angel. Oh, I woke him up.

Jenna: Ok.

Taylor: So, be sure and tell Sharlene about the present.

Jenna: I will. Ok.

Taylor: Bye, bye.

Jenna: Bye

Dean: Take it easy.

Jenna: What did Matt do now?

Dean: He just blew our whole business out of the water.

Rachel: Honey, I didn't ask Nat Lipman to help you.

Matt: No?

Rachel: No, we were sitting together at a board meeting and he asked me how my children were doing.

Matt: And you just happened to mention that --

Rachel: I told him about your business and then later he just called me out of the blue.

Matt: What did he say?

Rachel: He said that there was someone in his office who wanted to come by and hear your music.

Matt: You should have said no.

Rachel: I understand that now, but he was volunteering and I thought you might appreciate it.

Matt: Mom.

Rachel: Honey, I understand it was wrong, I'm sorry.

Matt: Listen, I don't want any favors, I don't want people laughing at me behind my back.

Rachel: I understand that.

Matt: Then why don't you just stay out of it?

Rachel: Honey, I will from now on, believe me, but I think you're overreacting.

Matt: Maybe I should just change my name.

Rachel: What are you talking about?

Matt: Maybe I should just use the name Blake.

Rachel: Matthew.

Matt: Then I'd know people treated me the way they did because of who I am, not because my name's Cory.

Dean: Jenna!

Jenna: Will you be quiet?

Dean: All right. I wasn't the one who was screaming before, right? It was the kid.

Jenna: Not now, I finally got him to sleep.

Dean: Good, good.

Jenna: Keep it down or you'll wake him up.

Dean: I'm sorry. Listen, you're little boyfriend just blew off one of the biggest record companies in the business.

Jenna: Why?

Dean: I don't know, something about his mother had something to do with lining it up or something.

Jenna: Well, can't you see why he hates that?

Dean: I can't see blowing it when you finally get a break, a big break.

Jenna: Shhh.

Dean: Shhh -- listen, we had them, Jenna, we had them listening to the music and he liked it. He liked it.

Jenna: Well, that's great. Maybe Matthew will change his mind.

Dean: No, not a chance, you should have seen the way he treated the guy. It's over, it's finished.

Jenna: You can't say that for sure. Good luck can come in streaks.

Dean: So can bad. Sharlene.

Sharlene: Dean.

Jenna: You're back soon.

Sharlene: Yeah, how's Gregory?

Jenna: Uh, he's fine. He's upstairs sleeping.

Sharlene: How did it go?

Jenna: Great, he's a wonderful baby.

Sharlene: And he didn't give you any trouble when you tried to put him down. He gets a little fussy sometimes.

Dean: Uh --

Jenna: Uh -- a little bit. It was no problem.

Sharlene: You helped out, Dean?

Dean: Oh, well, I just like looking at him.

Sharlene: Thank you, though, for coming on such short notice.

Jenna: Oh, sure, I had fun

Sharlene: Maybe you can do it again, I hope?

Jenna: I'd love to.

Sharlene: Good.

Jenna: Oh, a friend of yours stopped by, and she left this for Gregory.

Sharlene: Who was it?

Jenna: Uh, Dr. Benson.

Sharlene: Taylor.

Jenna: She said she wanted to check up on the baby.

Sharlene: How long did she stay?

Jenna: Just for a little while, she was here when I gave the baby his bottle.

Sharlene: Oh, she helped out?

Jenna: A little bit. She just held him while I went to the kitchen.

Dean: Yeah, that's when I came.

Jenna: Yeah. That was ok, wasn't it?

Sharlene: Oh, sure it's ok. Dean's family.

Jenna: No, I mean about Dr. Benson. She said she was a doctor with the hospital. She had a tag.

Sharlene: No, that's right, that's right, she is.

Jenna: You don't mind, do you?

Sharlene: No, I don’t. Darling, I'm sorry. No, of course not. No, let me get you some cash, and, uh, we'll get you on your way. And I thank you again for doing this. Sure.

Dean: Good to see you.

Sharlene: Good to see you.

Dean: See you soon.

Sharlene: You come by any time. And I'll call you again, I hope you are interested.

Jenna: Bye.

Sharlene: Bye.

Sharlene: Gregory.

Mark: Beautiful evening, yes?

Amanda: Mark, what are you doing here?

Mark: Looking for you.

Amanda: Why?

Mark: 'Cause I was wrong.

Amanda: About the picture?

Mark: No, no, about the other thing.

Amanda: What other thing?

Mark: Us. I was really wrong to think that we could work together and go out.

Amanda: You could have called me for that.

Mark: No, no, because I had to give you this.

Amanda: What's this?

Mark: It's my resignation.

Amanda: You're not serious.

Mark: Absolutely.

Amanda: Well, what if I don't accept it?

Mark: Well, you don't have any say in the matter. I'll clear out of my office by tomorrow, and then you've got to start thinking about where you want to go on our first date, ok? Bye.

Paulina: Are you sure you want to do this?

Grant: You're the one that wanted to, remember?

Paulina: Yeah, but Rachel can really do a number on you, you know?

Grant: Aah, Rachel’s a piece of cake.

Paulina: All of a sudden I'm not sure what I should say.

Grant: You'll figure something out. You always do.

Paulina: Right.

Where is everyone?

Grant: Well, it beats me.

Paulina: Hello.

Grant: Looks like we have the Cory mansion all to ourselves.

Paulina: Ooh, I like that.

Jake: Well, how do?
