 Macy: Darla, what's going on? Is -- is something wrong?

 Thorne: She was just surprised by our announcement.

 Macy: Oh. Oh, Darla, I -- I am so sorry. I mean, it just all happened so fast. I didn't have time to tell anybody. I just -- I can't thank you enough for everything that you've done for us, though. I mean, thanks to you and your advice -- oh, honey, I've never been happier in my life.

***************************************

 Rick: You have to admit, it was pretty amazing.

 Amber: It's unbelievable. I mean, April's been in town one week and she already gets a gig on "The Late Late Show."

 Rick: Well, she was at the right place at the right time.

 Amber: Yeah, I mean, I just don't want her to think that it's always going to be this easy. You know, she's got a little exposure right now. But if she really wants a career in the music business, she's really gonna have to work for it.

 Rick: Amber, are you jealous?

 Amber: Don't be ridiculous.

 Rick: You are. You're jealous of your sister.

***************************************

 Deacon: Um, hey.

 April: I'm cool. Thanks.

 Deacon: I'm sorry. I don't mean to bother you or anything. I mean, you must get this all the time, but do you know who you look amazingly like?

 April: Listen, buddy, I'm kinda busy. So, why don't you -- have a seat.

 Deacon: Wow, this -- I'm sorry, I just -- I saw you from over there across the -- but this is the weirdest thing that I've ever seen in my life. I mean, I know it sounds like a line, but you look exactly like a friend of mine.

 April: Amber.

 Deacon: You know her?

 April: You bet I do. She's my twin.

***************************************

 Darla: Mace, I know you're happy. That's why I feel so bad.

 Macy: About what? What? Was it something I said?

 Darla: Oh, no, no, no. Honey, no, not at all. It's not you. It's me.

 Thorne: No, no. It's me. It's me. I'm the one who should be really be thanking you, not Macy. Look, you've been a damn good friend to her, don't get me wrong. But, Darla, you have been an incredible friend to me. You were there for me on one of the worst nights of my life -- the night that I thought I lost Macy. I'll never forget your tenderness and your compassion. The way that you reached out and comforted me. You're a special person, Darla.

 Macy: He's right, sweetie. You really are so important to both of us.

 Thorne: That's right. And you will always be a part of our lives. And my relationship with Macy will not interfere with your friendship. I know how much that means to you.

 Darla: You think I'm jealous?

 Thorne: No, no.

 Darla: Well, I am. Mace, I know you're happy, sweetie. And I wish I could be, too.

 Macy: Oh.

 Darla: When I see the two of you together --

 Macy: Oh, Darla. Oh. Oh, honey. Honey, it's okay. It's okay. I understand, I do. But you are going to fall in love someday. You are. Here, look at me. Look at me. Somewhere out there there's a wonderful guy for you. It's okay.

 Darla: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I don't want to ruin your evening. I'm really sorry. I'm gonna go.

***************************************

 Amber: I am not jealous of April.

 Rick: You weren't even the tiniest bit envious watching April on "The Late Late Show" the other night?

 Amber: Well, she was good, and I was proud of her. But I think you're both making way too big a deal out of this. I mean, it was one song. Nobody even knew who she was and chances are nobody's ever going to.

 Rick: You don't think she has what it takes.

 Amber: There is a reason why they call it 15 minutes of fame, Rick. And that's because for pseudo celebrities like April, that's usually about how long it lasts.

***************************************

 Deacon: I'm sorry. I'm just trying to digest all this. I mean, it -- this is so weird. Knowing that someone out there looks exactly like she -- I mean, the way you look, the two of you look.

 April: Yeah, there are similarities, but I am definitely hotter.

 Deacon: See, now right there. Amber used to have attitude like that.

 April: Amber? Miss "sophistication can be affordable"?

 Deacon: Yeah, well, the Forresters, they do have a way of sucking the life out of people, don't they? So, anyway, I mean, what was it like when she met you? She must have flipped out.

 April: Well, you know, it's really been great for the both of us. You know, I mean, you always hear those things about twins -- you know, apart they're half a person, and there's always something missing. I mean, you know, it sounds like bull, but let me tell you, since Amber and I met, my whole life has just turned around, okay? Like last week, I got a gig on "The Late Late Show." Me, April Knight, on national television. Did you see it?

 Deacon: Oh, no, I didn't see it. I'm sorry.

 April: Oh, okay. Well, if you're interested, um, I'm gonna be playing all week at "Club S"

 Deacon: "Club S" over on the strip?

 April: Oh, yeah. Their booking agent just faxed me over this contract. Do you know how many people got their starts there?

 Deacon: Oh, yeah.

 April: Yeah. And me, I would -- I would pay them to have me play there. But they are paying me, and they are paying me good.

 Deacon: Well, I mean, you know, a tabloid sensation with national coverage. Hell, that would be worth at least five.

 April: Oh, yeah. And that's what I'm gettin'. Five bills for three days.

 Deacon: $500?

 April: Oh, yeah.

 Deacon: April, honey, that's chump change. They should be paying you at least $5,000.

***************************************

 Thorne: Where is everybody going?

 C.J.: Well, we thought you two had snuck off to do a little celebrating of your own, so --

[Laughter]

 Clarke: Did you find Darla?

 Macy: Yeah. Yeah, she -- she had to leave.

 Clarke: What happened?

 Macy: She was just a little upset. I think she's gonna be all right.

 Sally: Well, of course she is. And actually, I think Darla had the right idea. So we have decided we are going to leave you two lovebirds alone.

 Macy: No, no, don't go. Don't.

 C.J.: Congratulations, Mace.

 Macy: C.J.

 Clarke: You guys stay. Have a good time.

 Thorne: Well, thanks for coming.

 Macy: Yeah.

 Sally: Of course. Darling, I want you to know we are all very happy for both of you.

 Macy: Oh, thank you. Well, thanks -- thanks for coming. Sorry it was so short.

 C.J.: Me, too. I'm still hungry.

 Macy: Go eat. Gosh.

 Thorne: Well, um, it's just you and me, kid.

 Macy: Oh, that's good.

***************************************

[Darla sighs]

***************************************

 Rick: Amber, it's not like you to be so pessimistic.

 Amber: I just don't want April to set her goals too high.

 Rick: Because you're afraid she might achieve them?

 Amber: Stop! Come on, you know that's not true.

 Rick: Look, it's okay to be a little bit jealous sometimes.

 Amber: Of what? I have everything I've ever wanted.

 Rick: Everything except for a singing career.

 Amber: Honey, nothing is more precious to me than what we have -- our marriage, our family, my work. So, as I see it, April should be the one envying me.

***************************************

 April: $5,000? Are you crazy?

 Deacon: No, but you are if you sign this contract.

 April: Nobody's gonna pay me $5,000 to play in their club.

 Deacon: Oh, you're absolutely right. I mean, why the hell are they gonna pay you $5,000, when they know they can get you for $500.

 April: That's over 100 bucks a night.

 Deacon: Okay, let me ask you this -- is that net or gross? Is that before or after social security?

 April: Why do I have to worry about that? I'm not retiring.

 Deacon: Look, all I'm saying is you got to read this thing, front to end, 'cause it sounds to me like you're gettin' jacked.

 April: I know how to read a contract, okay?

 Deacon: Let me see this thing.

 April: It is legit.

 Deacon: April, you can't sign this piece of crap. This is their standard contract. No, you got to have this whole thing rewritten.

 April: How do you know so much?

 Deacon: I used to -- I used to run a club.

 April: Good for you, but I ain't taking advice from a bartender. I want this gig, and I am going to take it. Hey, yeah. Um, this is April Knight. I was just reading your contract, and --

 Deacon: Give me this phone. Give me this. Hey.

 April: Hey.

 Deacon: Hello? Yeah, yeah, listen. There's no way that April's signing this contract. No, no, I don't care. No. What you're gonna do if you want her to sign it, is you're gonna rewrite this piece of garbage. Got it?

***************************************

 Thorne: This party didn't go exactly as planned, huh?

 Macy: No, no. It was -- it was fine.

 Thorne: But you wish your family had stayed?

 Macy: Well, I guess I can't complain about having you all to myself.

 Thorne: You know, they are happy for you.

 Macy: Yeah, but what about Darla?

 Thorne: Give her time. I -- I think we just caught her off guard.

 Macy: I don't know. I don't know. I think it's something more than that. I mean, she was all behind this relationship ever since Portofino. And then it finally happens for us and she runs out of the restaurant in tears? It just --

[Macy sighs] I don't know. There's something going on with her. It just doesn't make sense.

***************************************

[Knock on door]

 Darla: Thorne. Oh, God.

 Clarke: Hello. How are you doing?

 Darla: Clarke, I'm really, really tired. I was just going to bed.

 Clarke: Macy said you left the party early. And she said you were pretty emotional.

 Darla: I'm fine.

 Clarke: What happened? You three were gone for a long time.

 Darla: They wanted to thank me for being such a great friend to both of them.

 Clarke: Oh, Darla. I'm sorry.

 Darla: Please, don't be. It's no big deal.

 Clarke: Well, you didn't know they'd gotten back together.

 Darla: Yeah, but I don't know why it should surprise me, huh? It was bound to happen eventually, right? Because Thorne and Macy are meant to be together.

 Clarke: You and Thorne thought that she chose Lorenzo.

 Darla: Well, that was a big mistake, wasn't it? Just a big, horrible mistake.

***************************************

 Deacon: Look, no, no. Listen to me, April --

 April: What the hell are you doing?

 Deacon: April is gonna be bringing a lot of people into your establishment. All right? They're going to be dropping bills at the door, they're gonna be dropping bills at the bar. Jumbo, she's not just doing this to line your pockets. No. She wants a cut.

 April: Hang up. You are ruining everything.

 Deacon: Quiet, quiet. I'm on the phone. Rory. Hey, buddy. I understand. I completely empathize. I know advertising costs a lot of money. But you're gonna have to come up. Warmer. Warmer. There you go. There you go. See? Okay, here's what we're gonna do. You fax back the contract to the same number as before, rewritten. And April will sign it, and we've got a deal.

 April: What happened? What did you do?

 Deacon: Ow! Ow! Three.

 April: I told you I was getting five -- five!

 Deacon: $3,000.

 April: What?

 Deacon: By the way, I wasn't just a bartender. I used to manage this place.

 April: Oh God. You are a genius. You're really good at this.

 Deacon: Thanks.

 April: No, thank you.

 Deacon: Look, it was my pleasure to do it. But do me a favor -- don't tell your sister, all right? She's not exactly my biggest fan.

 April: Well, I am.

***************************************

 Clarke: Oh, Darla. Honey --

 Darla: Oh, God. Stop, Clarke. Please. Don't -- don't feel sorry for me. I did a terrible thing.

 Clarke: You didn't know.

 Darla: I slept with my best friend's husband.

 Clarke: You thought they'd broken up.

 Darla: Yeah. And I actually thought that Thorne might have feelings for me. I am the biggest idiot.

 Clarke: Stop it, okay?

 Darla: Oh, God.

 Clarke: Okay? That is not true.

 Darla: It is true. Thorne was drunk, Clarke, and so was I. And this was a one-night stand and nothing more.

 Clarke: Is that what Thorne said?

 Darla: He didn't have to. I saw it in his eyes -- the fear, the regret. He just stood there sweating bullets.

 Clarke: Well, he should have been.

 Darla: No. No, he did not mean to betray Macy. And God knows neither did I.

 Clarke: Then what are you upset about?

 Darla: You don't get it, do you? Clarke, I finally thought that it was gonna happen for me. All the bad luck with men, all the crappy dates, the jerks that were after one thing, I mean, I put up with it, because I believed that I could find something real out there. All I had to do was keep searching. That night with Thorne, I thought we connected. I finally understood why they called it "making love." And then when he called and left that message, I thought he wanted to have dinner with me because he felt something, too. Yeah, he felt something all right -- regret. God. It was one of the most incredible moments of my life, and if he could it erase it, he would.

***************************************

 Thorne: You're worried about Darla.

 Macy: Aren't you? I mean, you saw her, she's just not herself.

 Thorne: She was emotional.

 Macy: Yeah, yeah. I think she's jealous.

 Thorne: You don't believe that?

 Macy: Well, that's what she said.

 Thorne: Honey, she wanted us together more than anybody.

 Macy: Right, right, but she wants that same happiness for herself.

 Macy: Darla is such a wonderful woman. She deserves to be just as happy as we are. Darla deserves to be in love with someone incredible -- someone sensitive and handsome and honest. Someone just like you.

***************************************

 [Answering Machine]

Thorne: Hey, Darla, it's me again. Just wondering where you are. Look, maybe I didn't make it clear enough earlier, but it's -- it's really important that we talk. See, Macy and I -- well, we're back together. But I'm sure you agree, it's really important she never knows about what happened between the two of us. So that's -- that's something we have to forget -- forever.

[Darla sobs]
