Dayzee: Thank you.
Marcus: You're welcome.
Dayzee: So that's the deal. Whenever it gets to late for me to go back downtown--
Marcus: Stephanie wants you to crash right here at the guesthouse.
Dayzee: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I still have my place at the mission. You know, that's where I spend most of my time.
Marcus: And I understand that. But tonight is a special night, for me, that is, Dayzee.
Woman: Hey, good evening.
Justin: Hey. How are you?
Woman: What can I get for you two this evening?
Justin: You know, I think we are going to have two brandies.
Justin: Yes, please.
Woman: Coming right up.
Justin: Thank you.
Donna: Thank you. Well, that was quite the birthday bash your boss threw you.
Justin: Who knew the old guy was such a softie, huh?
Donna: Softie, my foot. No, Bill Spencer doesn't do that for just anyone. I mean, you have been his loyal right hand and even better friend to a man who doesn't have a lot of friends.
Justin: Powerful men very seldom do.
Donna: Which says a lot about you. Being the one person that the mighty Bill Spencer Jr...
Donna: Trusts, respects. I mean, it must mean a lot.
Justin: Of course. But what's more important to me is how my son and his mother feel about me.
Donna: Marcus really looks up to you, Justin. He loves you so much.
Justin: Well, I love him, too. I'm so proud of him, he's my family. You know, we really are a family, Donna, in all the ways that count. Well, except one.
Nick: I've tried to quit more than once. It's just-- it's just too damn hard.
Stephanie: Oh, you talk as though you're the only person in the world addicted to nicotine. Of course it's hard. But people do it. Some people even do it cold turkey.
Nick: No more cold turkey. I tried that. I'd rather walk the plank.
Stephanie: Well, isn't that exactly what you're doing if you continue smoking-- walking the plank?
Nick: Okay, Stephanie, I-I think I need to take a break from this. I understand that this is something that's very near and dear to you because of what you've recently been going through--
Stephanie: This has nothing to do with me and what I have been through. This is all about you and all about that little boy. That little boy is down there waiting very patiently to go sailing with his daddy. I know that. Do you realize how selfish you're being about this? Do you want him to grow up without a father? Do you want to end up just another one of those statistics that you hate hearing about?
Dayzee: It's been great for me, too, Marcus. Tonight, I mean.
Marcus: Right. My old man, he's-- he's pretty great, isn't he?
Dayzee: Yeah. And it's obvious he feels the same way about you.
Marcus: Yeah. You know what? You know what I'm gonna do?
Marcus: I'm gonna text him "Happy Birthday" one more time.
Marcus: I mean, this is actually the first time we've celebrated a birthday together, so...
Dayzee: Oh, wow.
Marcus: Mm-hmm. And plus the way he was looking at my mom, there may be something else to celebrate soon. (Chuckles)
Donna: (Whispers) To us.
(Cell phone beeps)
Justin: Let's see. Pardon me.
Donna: It's okay.
Justin: (Laughs) Text from Marcus wishing his old man a happy birthday again. (Scoffs)
Donna: Oh, is he, uh, still with Dayzee?
Justin: What do you think?
Justin: (Chuckles) Yeah.
Donna: Well, I think that she is a remarkable young woman who has already had quite an impact on our son.
Justin: You know, after meeting her tonight, I think she's had that effect on everyone.
Donna: Yes, she has, especially Stephanie. Talk about a changed woman.
Justin: How do you feel about that? I mean, she didn't exactly make it easy on you and Eric when you were married.
Donna: I believe that if you spend your life looking back with regret, you'll... miss the opportunities that are right around the corner, much less right in front of you.
Justin: You're being very philosophical tonight, Miss Logan.
Donna: Well, I've had some time to reflect these past few months, think about my mistakes and vow never to repeat them.
Justin: Mistakes are how we learn, at least so they say.
Donna: Yeah. Well, I've certainly done my share of 'em.
Donna: The biggest being keeping the truth about Marcus from you.
Justin: Donna, it's okay, all right?
Donna: I know you want me to keep it in the past. It's just that... you know, when I was making this album, I, uh-- it was kind of for me, as well. You know.
Justin: You missed all those years, too.
Donna: There hasn't been a day that's gone by that I haven't... (Voice cracks) Thought about the baby that I gave up. You know, wondering if he was loved, safe, happy.
Justin: Childhood photos show that he is.
Donna: I know. I know they do. But Marcus, you know, he knew something was missing, didn't he? He just didn't know what.
Justin: Our son has both of his parents in his life. For the first time, me and him spent a birthday together. That's--that's huge. I think we should cherish the moments we have now. We're creating memories right now. And no one knows that better than Marcus.
Donna: Yeah. (Chuckles)
Marcus: Nice of Stephanie letting you stay here.
Marcus: You must mean a lot to her.
Dayzee: Oh, well, she means a lot to me, too
Marcus: Uh, even though it didn't start off that way?
Dayzee: Oh, no, are you talking about the scarf? (Scoffs)
Marcus: Stephanie following you all the way down skid row.
Dayzee: Giving me the "What for?"
Dayzee: It's crazy. Who would have thought it would have led to all this?
Marcus: Stephanie fighting for the homeless...
Marcus: Even though she wages her own battle with lung cancer.
Dayzee: She's helped so many, but it's like this continuous thing, you know. Wherever you look, someone's trying to find a job or a hot meal or... fighting personal addictions of their own, whatever it may be.
Nick: I'll make you a deal. I'll cut back. One cigar a day, two tops.
Stephanie: Oh, stop kidding yourself. You're putting yourself and that little boy at risk.
Nick: I'll change brands.
Nick: I know what I'll do. I'll come up with some other type of habit, some things that really annoy you, like biting my fingernails or cracking my knuckles. Those don't cause cancer, do they?
Stephanie: You're being very childish about this.
Nick: Well, then quit preaching to me!
Stephanie: Okay. Fair enough. I'll get off my soapbox.
Stephanie: I will, however, have the last word in this debate.
Stephanie: Honey, I know this is a very, very difficult addiction, but you are a very strong person. You can beat this. All you have to do is figure out what's the best way for you to do it. I know that you can do it, if for no other reason than for that little boy. Nick, I will be here. I will help you in any way, shape, whatever you need. I promise you.
Jack: Can we take the dinghy out now?
Nick: You bet we can, Skipper. I've been looking forward to it all day.
Jack: Me, too.
Nick: (Laughs) I think I'm gonna spend some time with my son now. So thank you for your concern, for caring. I swear, I'll--I'll quit.
Stephanie: Good. Bye, Jack.
Jack: (Speaking indistinctly) (Laughs)
Nick: (Laughs) I know. Was that fun, or was that fun?
Nick: And you weren't scared at all, even when we were gonna tip over?
Jack: That was the best part.
Nick: You weren't scared at all? Jack? What's the matter?
Nick: Well, what about her?
Jack: She looked worried.
Nick: Well, you mean when she was here before?
Jack: You looked worried, too, Daddy. Why, Daddy?
Justin: Oh, Man. (Snickers) So what made you think of this?
Donna: Uh, let's just say that I have been feeling nostalgic lately.
Justin: Yeah? Having a longing for the good old days?
Donna: Oh... (Chuckles)
Donna: Is that what our high school days were, the good old days?
Justin: Well, hey, they're rough for some kids, you know, name-calling or bullying or worse.
Donna: The jock and the homecoming queen. (Laughs)
Justin: I guess being popular has its benefits.
Donna: Oh, no, no, no. Having a sister who was popular who paved the way helped.
Justin: No disrespect, but Brooke had nothing on you, and still doesn't.
Donna: Mm-hmm. Except being happily married with a husband who loves and adores her, you mean?
Justin: You were happily married, had a husband that adored you. I'm assuming Eric always will.
Donna: Hmm, I guess I'm so gosh-darn hard to forget.
Marcus: I didn't forget about you, Donna.
Donna: Even though I... I treated you terribly.
Justin: You know, I always wondered why you broke it off so suddenly.
Donna: It was wrong. I-I should have-- I should have told you that I was pregnant.
Justin: Donna, no, you were thinking of my future and, you know, what the scholarship would do to my life.
Donna: If you'd have known about the baby, Justin, you... you would have wanted to marry me. You would have gotten a job to support us, support the baby. You would have made the selfless choice.
Justin: So you made if for me.
Donna: Yeah, I did. But, you know, looking at the album, I-I'm so appreciative of Marcus' adoptive parents. I am. But it's also a reminder of all the lost time, you know, the memories that we never go share, the three of us.
Justin: Donna, we're making 'em now.
Donna: But I want--I want something more, Justin. I-remember what you said, um, you know, at Bill and Katie's wedding when we were by the tree, with their initials carved?
Justin: "If you weren't married to Eric anymore..."
Donna: "Things would be different."
Justin: Donna, I'm giving you my letterman's jacket, okay? What more do you want?
Donna: (Laughs) I know. I-I want the family that we started back then. I-I don't want to wait, Justin. God, I'm hoping--I'm hoping and I'm praying that... you want the same thing. You know what you want today.
Nick: Wow. So you thought I looked worried before? Do I look worried... now? Do I look worried... now? Do I look worried now?
Jack: You're silly, Daddy.
Nick: (Laughs) Good. And you are one big, beautiful worrywart. Come here. Hey, there's nothing for you to be concerned about, ever, because you know what? Your old man's gonna be able to take care of you, and I'm gonna be around for a long, long time.
Nick: Hey, Jack?
Nick: There's something I need to take care of up on deck. You want to go grab us a couple cold ones?
Jack: Apple juice?!
Nick: Yeah. Go on over there, Partner. Pull 'em out.
Nick: I'm done.
Dayzee: So are you hoping your mom and dad get back together?
Marcus: Well, if that's what they want. (Scoffs) I mean, I can't-- I can't remember the last time I saw my mom's eyes sparkle like that. She's been alone for a long, long time. My dad has, too. So if they're gonna get back together, then...
Dayzee: You're playing matchmaker.
Marcus: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. I'm just hoping.
Marcus: I got my own love life to look after.
Dayzee: How's it going?
Marcus: I think it's going okay. I think.
Dayzee: Just--just okay?
Marcus: Yeah. Maybe you could help me with something.
Marcus: All right. So there's this girl, right? And she's very interesting. She's smart. She's intelligent. I mean, she's awesome. And she has opened my eyes up in ways that I've never opened 'em up before.
Dayzee: What does she look like?
Marcus: She's cute.
Marcus: And she's very beautiful... inside and out.
Dayzee: You should tell her.
Marcus: I will.
Justin: Well, what? (Chuckles)
Donna: (Chuckles) You know what. You want to make sure you're not misinterpreting.
Justin: Well... look, I'm a lawyer. I'm used to spelling things out.
Donna: Uh-huh, dotting all your "I's" and crossing all your "T's."
Justin: I don't like ambiguity, I'm sorry.
Donna: I didn't think I was.
Justin: Was what?
Donna: Being ambiguous. I-I thought I was putting it right out there.
Justin: Putting what out there?
Donna: Okay. You want me to, uh, put this in legalese, Counselor? Would that make it all neat and tidy for you? Well, I can't, okay, because... loving someone isn't neat and tidy. I mean, it gets complicated. But what isn't complicated, Justin, is how I feel. I... I love you. (Giggles) And... I love the man that you are, I love the father that you've become. I-- I want a second chance... for us, for the two of us, for our son. Now I-I don't think that's too much to ask. Do you?
Justin: I think that is a fine persuasive argument. There's just one problem. I don't need persuading, Donna. I want the same thing. Look, I have always loved you. You took my heart in high school, and you've had it ever since, and you always will. Always.
Justin: (Chuckles) (Chuckles) Oh, wow.
Justin: What is this?
Donna: (Clears throat) I-I know that this is not the way it's traditionally done, but I don't care. Justin Barber, will you marry me?
Justin: (Sighs) Stand up. Stand up. Shouldn't I be proposing to you?
Donna: I can't give you all those lost years, Justin, but I can give you a future.
Justin: That's what I've always wanted.
Donna: So... I that-- is that a yes? Yes?
Justin: Yes. Yes. I love you so much.
Donna: Oh, my God, after all these years.
Justin: I love you so much.
Donna: (Giggles) (Laughs)
