Nick: You didn't invite me to swim alone, did you? The water feels really good. You getting in?

Brooke: No. Not right now. I just -- I want to stay here by the phone.

Nick: I really don't think Deacon's going to hang up on the first ring if you don't pick it up.

Brooke: I never should have agreed to this in the first place. Because he doesn't know the first thing about how to take care of a baby.

Nick: Well, look at it this way, it's only a few hours, right? The little girl will be home before you know it.

Brooke: You don't know his history.

Nick: No, I don't. But I know you're gonna be really cranky if you let this ruin your whole afternoon.

Brooke: I'm being a terrible hostess, aren't I?

Nick: Kinda. Yeah. That's okay, though. If you don't feel like entertaining me, maybe -- maybe you'll let me entertain you, huh?

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

Clarke: No. No, I don't believe this. Hope Logan is Deacon Sharpe's baby?

Sally: Yes.

Clarke: But he was Brooke's son-in-law.

Sally: Right. And now he is my daughter Macy's new best friend.

Clarke: So he had an affair with Brooke while he was married to her daughter?

Sally: You want to stay with me on this, Bucky? Stay focused. I mean, we're talking about Macy here.

Clarke: Yes, we're also talking about Brooke Logan. It just -- Brooke and Deacon?

Sally: And you add Macy and a little baby girl to that mix and you've got something pretty unhealthy. Macy hasn't even begun to deal with the loss of her marriage and the fact that she can never have a child of her own. It will be extremely unhealthy for her to around a baby -- any baby, especially Brooke's.

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

Deacon: Okay, put that right there. Abracadabra, we've got one happy dry, baby.

Macy: Oh, yes. I am impressed.

Deacon: Well, you know, I'm not a complete novice at this.

Macy: I can tell.

Deacon: Amber and little d -- they lived with me for awhile.

Macy: I didn't know that.

Deacon: Yeah. I think a lot of guys would probably go nuts having a kid in the house and everything. But not me. I look back on that as some of the best times of my life. I just worry that maybe he was too young to remember it.

Macy: How old was he?

Deacon: He was about 2.

Macy: Well, they say that the first years of a child's life are the most important.

Deacon: Really?

Macy: Yeah. Yeah, the experiences Hope's having right now are gonna shape the person she becomes in the future.

Deacon: Yeah? You hear that? Huh, angel? I'll tell you what. We better get started, huh? We better get started right away. Yes. Oh, give daddy a hug. What do you want? What do you want? Wanna see this?

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

[Knock on door]

Jackie: Hang on. Hang on, I'll be right there. Massimo.

Massimo: May I come in?

Jackie: That all depends on what you want.

Massimo: I've brought you a peace offering and an apology.

Jackie: Just one?

Massimo: I felt as if we got off to a bad start, and I would like to try again.

Jackie: Why?

Massimo: Jackie, I realize that I haven't done very much to get on your good side. But there was a time --

Jackie: A time that you obviously have forgotten.

Massimo: I didn't.

Jackie: You didn't know who I was.

Massimo: Ah, so that's what this is about? I didn't recognize you? Jackie, it's been a lot of years.

Jackie: Massimo, you don't need to remind me, all right? I know exactly how many years it's been.

Massimo: You're not still angry at me because of our affair?

Jackie: I was never angry at you about our affair, Massimo.

Massimo: Well, it was Mexico then? Bridget told me you were there. Jackie, if I didn't notice you it was because I was so concerned about the crew on that ship.

Jackie: Unfortunately, that concern didn't extend to my son.

Massimo: Dominick and I have put all of that behind us.

Jackie: What about your misjudgment of me? Put that behind you, too?

Massimo: Well, I would certainly like to.

Jackie: Oh, I thought that's why we went to lunch.

Massimo: It was.

Jackie: No, it wasn't. You're not interested in me or what I've done with my life. You just wanted me to talk my son into dating Brooke Logan.

Massimo: That's not true. Well, all right, I did want you to help me Brooke. But I certainly could done that on the telephone.

Jackie: But you're so much more persuasive in person, aren't you?

Massimo: Well, obviously, I'm not or I would be having better luck at the moment.

Jackie: Oh, so what is it that you want me to do now?

Massimo: I want you to have a glass of wine with me.

Jackie: No, thank you.

Massimo: Oh, Jackie, please. I know I've hurt you. And for that, I am genuinely sorry.

Jackie: So am I.

Massimo: So let me make it up to you. One glass of wine, hmm? For old time's sake.

Jackie: What exactly do you think that one glass of wine is going to accomplish?

Massimo: Well, I suppose it depends on the wine.

Jackie: 1962.

Massimo: From one of the first barrels that vineyard ever produced.

Jackie: I don't believe it.

Massimo: We had it in that fabulous restaurant just -- in a little town just north of Seattle. Remember?

Jackie: On a hill.

Massimo: With a view of the river. I haven't forgotten, Jackie. I haven't forgotten anything.

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

Brooke: So you're going to entertain me?

Nick: No, actually, I fibbed a little about that. I'm gonna give you some advice instead.

Brooke: Look, nick, I know it seems like I'm overreacting, but you really don't know Deacon at all.

Nick: No, I know. I don't claim to know him. But I think I know you a little bit. And if you thought this was a dangerous situation, you never would have given him your kid.

Brooke: He really gave me no choice.

Nick: You did the right thing.

Brooke: So I'm supposed to just let him waltz back in into hope's life and create all this chaos? Right?

Nick: Well, no, that's not what I am saying, but thank you. You make this an all-or-nothing situation, you leave this Mr. Deacon with no options.

Brooke: So you think I'm making this worse?

Nick: I don't know the guy, okay? No attachment to him at all. But he's Hope's biological father, right? Truth is, kids want to know both their parents.

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

Deacon: Come on, take a step. Look at her. That's it. Come on. Come on. Look at her go. Oh, man, look at this. Yeah! Oh, baby. Did you see that?

Macy: Yeah. It's incredible.

Deacon: Yes, you are perfect. That was very good. I am very, very impressed with you. You think she knows that I'm her father?

Macy: Well, she definitely seems very interested in you.

Deacon: Yeah? She seems comfortable, too, huh?

Macy: Oh, yeah. She is a happy, happy baby.

Deacon: Yeah. I want to keep her that way, too. I mean, I want that for little d. But I don't know, it's weird. But it's different with a girl. You know, I feel so protective of her. This is really first time that we've spent together.

Macy: That's probably instinct.

Deacon: Think so? Yeah.

Macy: Speaking of time --

Deacon: Oh, no, no. Come on, not yet.

Macy: Well, I guess she can stay for a little while longer.

Deacon: Seems like she just got here. Oh, baby. It goes by so fast, doesn't it? Yeah. I keep thinking that this is gonna be the last time I'm with her. I don't know -- I don't know what I'm gonna do if Brooke doesn't let me see her again.

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

Brooke: I must look incredibly selfish trying to keep Hope away from her father.

Nick: No, not at all. But, remember, I'm coming from a different perspective here. I lost my father when I was a boy. It's one thing to lose him, but it's another thing living without him. My mom was great, don't get me wrong. She did a hell of a job. But --

Brooke: But you miss your dad?

Nick: Yeah, you know, the questions you have as you get older, they just -- what kind of man would he have been? Did I make the same mistakes he made? Would he be proud of the man I am today?

Brooke: I'm sure your mom's proud of you.

Nick: Yeah. But I was his son, too. It always feels like there's something missing, you know? I don't know. Maybe that's why I chose the life at sea, huh? Just to keep on moving.

Brooke: So you were searching for something?

Nick: Or running, right? I mean, let's face it, a guy like me my age usually has a wife and kids. I'm no shrink, but -- obviously there's a few issues there. Maybe I just haven't met the right girl.

Brooke: Look, nick, I know what it feels like to be abandoned by a parent. My dad wasn't around much when I was growing up, either. That's exactly why I don't my sweet little girl getting attached to somebody who really shows no interest in being a father.

Nick: Well, he is now.

Brooke: Yes, he is. But why? Why is Deacon suddenly so interested in having a relationship with his daughter?

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

Clarke: I don't know much about this Deacon Sharpe character. But it seems to me that Macy is just trying to help him.

Sally: Yes, and what if she's only trying to help deacon to avoid dealing with her own problems?

Clarke: Well, then I would say that she hitched her cart to the wrong horse.

Sally: That's right. And she is going to be constantly reminded of what is missing in her own life every time she hears deacon say Brooke's name. She's going to be reminded of it every time she has anything to do with that little baby. Macy is just not ready for this, Clarke. She's not ready for it. She has no idea what it's going to do to her emotionally, to be around that baby, to watch Deacon bonding with his child. She has no idea.

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

Deacon: What do you think of this guy? Yeah, this is Mr. Panda.

Hope: Yeah.

Deacon: Yeah, panda. This is yours, honey. This is your bear.

[Hope making baby noises ] I don't know. Maybe -- maybe I shouldn't have said what I did about not seeing her again.

Macy: Oh, no, no, no. She didn't understand.

Deacon: It might be neurotic. It's just that I think she felt me tense up, and now she's gotten all quiet. Oh, come here, honey.

[Hope crying] it's okay, it's okay. Come on, baby. Stop crying. Stop crying.

Macy: Here, let me. I'll try.

Deacon: Yeah? Okay.

Macy: Come here. Oh. Oh, yeah. Oh. Oh. See? It's okay.

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

Nick: So have you asked Deacon why he wants to see Hope now?

Brooke: He's changed. He says he's changed.

Nick: And you don't believe him, do you?

Brooke: I don't know. He's cleaned himself up. And he got a new job. But that doesn't mean he's ready to become a father.

Nick: Well, no, it doesn't. I don't want to sound like I'm defending the guy.

Brooke: But?

Nick: Well, maybe hope would appreciate if you gave him a chance to prove it.

Brooke: Hope is an infant.

Nick: I know that. But the reality is -- she's going to grow up fast. And you don't want her turning 16 and being really angry 'cause she doesn't know who her father is and holding you responsible for his absence.

Brooke: It's only an absence if he comes into her life and then he walks out again. Now, if he's just not a part of it --

Nick: She's still gonna wonder. It doesn't matter how old they are or how dysfunctional families get. Let's face it. Kids want to see their two parents get along.

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

Jackie: Massimo, where did you find this?

Massimo: My wine cellar.

Jackie: Your cellar? You --

Massimo: Didn't we agree to keep it until the next time we could sneak off and spend the whole day together?

Jackie: I don't believe you remembered.

Massimo: How could I forget? I had just come up from Mexico. Do you remember? We'd were gonna have coffee together. But it was such a lovely day that you called in sick to work.

Jackie: I didn't want to stay in the city. I just wanted to drive out of town. We went in that convertible. It was --

Massimo: That's right. And I stopped off at a gas station so you could fix your hair.

Jackie: And that's where we got the recommendation for --

Massimo: Mm-hmm.

Jackie: The restaurant.

Massimo: And you tied your hair up with a sky blue ribbon. I thought you were the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. And, you know, you are every bit as beautiful today.

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

Macy: Yeah, see? It's okay. Yeah.

[Hope making baby noises ] yeah. You want to start packing up her things?

Deacon: Yeah.

Macy: What? What are you saying?

Deacon: Oh, hey, where's her -- her sun hat?

Macy: Oh, it's on the kitchen counter.

Deacon: Okay.

Macy: [Humming "hush little baby"] Hush little baby don't say a word papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird. Can you sing? And if that mockingbird won't sing papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring, and if that diamond ring turns brass papa's gonna buy you a looking glass, and if that looking glass gets broke papa's gonna buy you a billy goat, and if that billy goat won't pull papa's gonna buy you a cart and bull, and if that cart and bull fall down you'll still be the sweetest baby in town yes, you will.

Deacon: Wow. Talk about instincts.

Macy: Here.

Deacon: Yeah.

Macy: You better not be late, huh?

Deacon: Okay.

Macy: I'll get the diaper bag.

Deacon: We both had a really good time.

Macy: Yeah.

Deacon: Macy, thank you. For everything.

Macy: Sure. Here.

Deacon: Thanks. Okay, say "bye." Say "bye." Bye-bye.

Macy: Bye-bye. Bye-bye. Bye-bye.
