Chelsea: Hey.

Daniel: Hey.

Chelsea: I was wondering if you had a minute. It's about Kate.

Daniel: Sure.

Chelsea: Um, I wanted -- well, I needed to know what's gonna happen to her. Is she gonna die?

Philip: Hey. There you are.

Kate: Hello. I thought we would have coffee on the terrace because it is such a beautiful day, isn't it?

Lucas: Mm-hmm.

Philip: You look great. You feeling good?

Kate: I do. Thank you. I feel terrific.

Lucas: So, what did you want to see us about?

Kate: Well, I thought it was about time that I had a serious talk about the future with my sons.

Bo: Hey, man.

Max: Hey.

Hope: Hey, Max.

Max: You want a beer?

Bo: [Chuckles] No. We're here on business.

Hope: Is Melanie around?

Max: Yeah, I think she's upstairs in her room still.

Hope: I'll go get her.

Max: Look, before you do anything, before you talk to my sister, there's something I need to tell you, okay?

Melanie: Okay. Okay. I have got to get out of here. I've got to get out of here. Oh, who's -- what -- oh, my God. Oh, my God.

 

[Knock on door] [Knock on door]

Melanie: Hope.

Hope: Good morning, Melanie. Sorry to wake you, but Bo and I have to talk to you.

Melanie: Can this wait?

Hope: No, sorry, so, uh, please get dressed and come downstairs. We'll be waiting.

[Cellphone rings]

Melanie: [Gasps] Hello?

Distorted male voice: I saw you in the cemetery. I know what happened.

Melanie: Oh, my God. What if -- what if Bo and Hope know?

Bo: Hey, look, man, if you're gonna be defending her again --

Max: No, I'm not. I'm not. But I've been thinking about what happened -- Melanie's behavior last night when Philip outed her about having the wallet.

Bo: Yeah, she was pretty freaked.

Max: I'm starting to think I made a big mistake sticking up for her.

Bo: What are you saying?

Max: Well, Melanie is -- she's starting to look guilty. I think Melanie is the one who killed Trent Robbins.

Lexie: Evan, would you go over everything with us again, exactly what this will entail?

Evan: Basically it's a "day in the life"-type profile for the spectator's "Sunday Magazine" section. And get this -- I think we got the cover.

Abe: Really?

Evan: Yeah. As president of the C.O.C., I can tell you that this town is very, very anxious to meet its new mayor.

Abe: Getting ahead of ourselves, Evan.

Evan: Now, look, I just spoke with Aiden, the photographer, and he wants to get some candid shots of the family interacting.

Lexie: With all of us?

Abe: Well, of course, sweetheart. That's why we're all here.

Lexie: I'm -- I'm not sure Theo's up for this.

Abe: When did you decide that?

Melanie: If the Brady's think they're gonna nail me for this, they are sadly mistaken.

Hope: I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you -- to have just found your sister and -- Max, I'm just so sorry.

Max: Look, don't waste your sympathy on me. She's the one who's been suffering through all these years. Even if she did kill Trent, it's because she got pushed to the limit.

Hope: Max, that doesn't give her the right --

Max: I know, I know. You don't have to give me a lecture. Stephanie said, you know, "it doesn't matter. Thou shall not kill unless you have a good reason." And...she's right. I'm not defending what -- what Melanie did, all right? The murder, covering it up, framing innocent people. I can't. But it doesn't stop me from --

Hope: What?

Max: Worrying about her. I can't help that. Even believing she's guilty?

Bo: Well, that makes sense. She's your sister.

Max: And she knows the walls are closing in and she has no more options left. I'm just afraid she's gonna do something desperate.

Hope: Like what?

Max: Like that.

Melanie: Hi. I need to a cab to the Brady Pub. Please hurry. Oh, my God.

Bo: Never mind. She won't be needing that cab. Where do you think you're going?

Abe: You said you were fine with this, and now all of a sudden --

Lexie: No, it's not all of a sudden. I've had my concerns from the beginning. I told you that. I mean, we practically drag him over here.

Abe: Nobody dragged him.

Lexie: Abe, he didn't want to come. He started screaming and banging his head when he got in the car. 

Abe: But then he calmed down. Now he's fine.

Lexie: Yeah, but for how long?

Abe: You ask me this now? Why did we drive all the way over here if you had no intention of staying?

Evan: Excuse me. I'm -- I'm gonna go check on some things, so --

Abe: Yeah. Look, I'm sorry.

Evan: No worries, no worries. Take your time.

Lexie: Thanks. [Sighs]

Abe: Lexie, I know you had your reservations from the beginning, but you're the one who said that we're gonna fight this together. You were gung ho. You were on fire.

Lexie: I know.

Abe: And what? Now you're thinking what? This is not good for Theo? This is not good for you? What?

Lexie: Don't bully me, Abe.

Abe: Bully you? I'm trying to figure out how you actually feel about this. I mean, one day you're excited. The next day, you're totally backing off. Lexie, please, please, please, tell me what's on your mind so I don't have to guess.

Lexie: This is about our little boy.

Abe: Oh. Oh, I see. I see. So now we're gonna put this on Theo. He's the one that doesn't want me running for mayor.

Lexie: That's not what I'm talking about, and you know it. It's not what I'm saying.

Abe: You know, he's pretty calm right now.

Lexie: Yeah, yeah, he's calm now, but how's he gonna be once they start shooting photos?

Abe: If Theo is unhappy or uncomfortable, I will insist that you take him home. Please have faith that I would not expose him to this kind of attention if I sense it's not good for him.

Lexie: But don't you already sense it, Abe? He didn't want to come. Maybe -- maybe it's because he was afraid that people would be staring at him, you know, wondering how the Carvers' little autistic child is doing feeling sorry for him.

Abe: How in the world would he know that? And it's not true.

Lexie: If it's hard on me, how can it possibly be good for our little boy?

Abe: You know, I would at least like to give this a chance. The election is just a few days away, and this article is important, and this may be exactly the push I need.

Lexie: Or it could flat-out backfire.

Daniel: I'm sorry, Chelsea, but once again, I ca--

Chelsea: You what? You can't discuss her case? You know, Daniel, I am really sick of your stupid, little rules. She's my family. Why do you get to know more about her than I do?

Daniel: I don't. But no one can predict how this is gonna go -- not until she gets her treatment.

Chelsea: [Sighs] Right. I'm sorry. It's just --

Daniel: No. You're upset, and I'm -- I understand.

Chelsea: It's just that the other day, before you came in with the test results, um, I just said some really awful things to her. I mean, I know that she's sick, and I can't help it, 'cause all I can think -- it doesn't matter. Uh, I just wish I could take back what I said.

Daniel: Well, this is Kate we're talking about. You know she'll forgive you.

Chelsea: Yeah, well, I'm hoping that I can do the same for her. Without my Mom around, Kate's really all I have, you know, to go to for advice and comfort, and she's been good toe -- really good to me. She's always made me feel really good about myself, for the most part.

Daniel: Well, she's good at that.

Chelsea: I just need her to know how important she is to me. I feel like it's my turn to take care of her.

Kate: Okay. So you both know how hard I have been working to build my business, and this is the first company that is all mine.

Philip: You worked night and day just to get it off the ground.

Lucas: And it's paid off. Hearth and Home is a hit. The profits are through the roof.

Kate: And I want it to stay that way, and that's why I've asked you both here, because I need to be sure that I'm leaving things in capable hands.

Philip: What do you mean, "leaving things"?

Lucas: Yeah, why are you talking like this?

Kate: Well, I'm gonna be taking a little time off.

Philip: For what?

Lucas: Please tell us this has nothing to do with your latest biopsy.

Philip: Did you get the results?

Kate: It's cancer -- lung cancer.

Philip: Well, now you know. It's better this way, isn't it?

Kate: Absolutely, it is. It was -- it w the waiting that was the hard part.

Philip: And now we can fight it.

Kate: Exactly.

Lucas: Well, we love you so much. You know that, right? I mean, we're gonna be with you every step of the way.

Kate: I know that. I do know that. And I am so grateful to have you both by my side.

Philip: I did some research on lung cancer when I thought that's what might be wrong. Mom, they have so many new treatment options.

Kate: I know.

Philip: Amazing new drugs.

Kate: I know they do. I know they do, and I have a lot of hope.

Lucas: So, what's all this talk about you leaving your business?

Kate: Well, I mean, it's -- it's temporary. It's not gonna be forever. It's only while I'm in treatment, which is why I'm asking for help from my sons. Can I count on you?

Philip: Of course. What can we do?

Kate: The first thing I'm asking you to do is release Lucas from his contract, because I'm going to need him to manage things for me for a while.

Philip: No problem. Done.

Kate: I mean, I would ask you to pitch in, too, but I know you have your hands filled with your father, and I really need someone's attention full time. So, what do you say, Lucas? Are you up to taking over the company?

Lucas: Yeah. I mean, I'll -- I'll keep my eye on things for you, but you're gonna be back before you know it, right?

Kate: Yeah. You know it. I'm gonna be back, better than ever.

Lucas: I mean, this diagnosis -- I can only assume it came from Daniel.

Kate: Yes.

Lucas: I'm sure he's a competent doctor -- I'm sure. But, I don't know, in a case like this, don't you think you should get a second opinion of some kind?

Kate: You mean more tests? No. Absolutely not. No way.

Lucas: I understand that, Mom, but this is your life we're talking about.

Philip: That's right, Lucas, it's her life, so let her make that decision.

Lucas: All right. Maybe your dad could help us. Victor's got connections all over the world. He knows specialists. We could get somebody better.

Kate: Lucas, there isn't anything that anyone else can do that Daniel can't.

Lucas: I just think that we should get somebody else. You know, at least try. Come on. There's got to be somebody.

Philip: There's not, okay? And let her decide that. My Dad's the one who brought Daniel to Salem, so Daniel's the best.

Kate: Please, both of you... I need you to listen to me. I know that neither of you approve of my involvement with Daniel, but I am begging you to please put that aside now.

Philip: Well, you don't have to beg. All we want is for you to be cured, and if Daniel's the man for that, that's what's gonna happen.

Lucas: I'm sorry. It's just not good enough for me.

Daniel: A big step for you.

Chelsea: Daniel, don't patronize me, okay?

Daniel: I'm impressed that you've made that decision.

Chelsea: Well, I haven't -- I can't promise that I'm gonna follow through with it, you know? I'm just gonna try.

Daniel: So you haven't really decided? You're just going to try?

Chelsea: What? Is that not good enough for you?

Daniel: No, of course it is.

Chelsea: What happened with you and Kate -- no matter how many times or how many different ways you try to explain it to me, it still felt like betrayal. But right now, her health and her life a far bigger than my petty feelings.

Daniel: They're not petty... at all.

Chelsea: Thank you for that. And, look, uh, I he come far enough to know that you never meant to hurt me. You were just my doctor. And...you saved my life. You saved my dad's life. And I-I developed a little crush on you, but that's all it was. And I think that that's all it was for you, too

Daniel: Chelsea, I --

Chelsea: I think that it's beer if you just don't say anything right now, okay? I just need you to promise me that you're gonna do everything you can for her.

Daniel: I promise. Everything in my power.

Melanie: Well, it's none of your business where I'm going.

Bo: It kind of is, since you were warned not to leave Salem.

Melanie: Why? So I can stick around here and endure some more abuse? I didn't kill my Father, and you don't have any proof that I did. So technically I can go wherever I want, and that is as far away from this place as I can get.

Bo: So you don't care that your father left you a will? We're flying in his attorney right now. He should be at the station anytime.

Hope: Come on, Melanie. Aren't you the least bit curious to know what your father left you?

Lucas: We can do this. We'll just do our own research.

Philip: Come on, Lucas.

Lucas: You don't accept a diagnosis from just one doctor. I don't care how good he is. We need another opinion on it.

Kate: You need to listen to me.

Lucas: I'm not listening anymore. I'm done with it. I'm gonna make my own calls.

Kate: No, you are not. Daniel has an excellent team in place, and we don't need to look any further. I don't want to look any further.

Lucas: You don't have to. I'll take care of it.

Kate: No. No, you won't. You're going to accept what I have to say, all right? Dr. Faulk is one of the top pulmonologists in the country. Dr. Knapp is without peer. And I'm not just taking Daniel's word on that. I checked it out myself. I went online myself. I did my research. Thank you, baby. Thank you. I am so grateful to both of you for being so committed to helping me. I really am. I-I-I am so lucky -- I am so lucky to have two wonderful sons.

Lucas: All right. Fine. You win. We'll have it your way, but what do we do next?

Kate: Well, I start my first round of chemotherapy later today. So that's why I asked you both here -- because I'm going to need you to take over at Hearth and Home right away, just in case there's side effects, like nausea, fatigue. I might be out of commission for a little while, so...

Lucas: Do Billie and Austin know?

Kate: Yes. They do. I talked to them right before you came over. So, you see, everything is taken care of, and I'm all packed up and ready to go. And there's my ride.

Daniel: Good morning.

Kate: Good morning. You're a little early.

Daniel: Uh, no traffic.

Kate: Ah.

Daniel: Yeah. Philip. Lucas.

Kate: Well, I guess we might as well go then.

Lucas: Wait. Before you do, just wait a second. Can I have a quick word with you, please?

Kate: Lucas, please.

Lucas: Mom, it'll be fine. It'll just take a second. That's all. Okay?

Daniel: No, it's fine.

Lucas: All right. It's fine.

Philip: I'm so proud of you -- how strong you are.

Kate: No. Not always. I've had a few moments.

Philip: Yeah. I just wish it hadn't turned out this way. I know you're gonna beat this. I just wish it wasn't so tough. You know?

Kate: I know. But "cancer" isn't such a scary word anymore, you know? It's like you pointed out. There are new drugs. There's new advancements every day, so...

Philip: Closer to a cure all the time.

Kate: That's right. That is right. I am just so lucky to -- to have so much love and support in my life. I appreciate that.

Philip: Well, I am here for you, day or night, whatever you need. I'll take off work. I'm here for you.

Kate: I know you are. Baby, I love you so much.

Philip: I love you, too. I love you, too.

Kate: We have been through a lot together, and we're gonna get through this, too.

Abe: It's a photo shoot. Pictures and an article. One hour, we're out of here.

Lexie: No, it'll take longer than an hour.

Abe: And you know that how?

Lexie: Theo, honey, sweetheart, look. Look what mommy has for you. Look. Here. A computer game. I have some raisins here, too. Let me open the box for you. Mommy and daddy will be right over there, okay? Do you think this is about me, that I can't spare a couple of hours?

Abe: I never said that.

Lexie: This is about our son, Abe. I'm worried about him.

Abe: Then let me ask you again. Why did you agree to this in the first place?

Lexie: Because -- look, I felt pressured into it, okay? But now that we're here, it just feels wrong. I've changed my mind. Am I not allowed to do that?

Abe: You know, Theo is doing fine.

Lexie: Yeah, right now, because no one's asked him to perform yet.

Abe: Nobody's asking him to do that. All he's being asked to do is be exactly who he is. That's our son.

Lexie: Abe, being who he is means we can't predict how he'll react to a strange or potentially frightening situation.

Abe: My God, Lexie. He's having his picture taken with his mother and father.

Lexie: Don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about.

Abe: I'm not pretending.

Lexie: Anything can set him off, Abe. What if he has a meltdown during the middle of the interview or photo shoot?

Abe: Then we'll deal with it.

Lexie: Right. Right. We will deal with it. But how will Mona Roy? I've read about that journalist. She's tough.

Abe: Tough.

Lexie: Mm-hmm.

Abe: Right. So she's going to say horribly cruel things about an autistic child? Is that what you're afraid of, Lexie?

Lexie: She could say cruel things about us, Abe -- about how we handle our autistic child. Are you forgetting what happened with Lacey Hansen -- that nightmare of a press conference? Are you willing to risk that happening again?

Evan: Excuse me. We're ready to start if you guys are.

Lexie: Uh, Evan, I'm sorry. Would you -- would you tell me exactly what this photo session will entail? You know, what it is they'll be needing from us.

Evan: As I understand, it's gonna be very, very casual. Candid shots of the family out together, like any other, for breakfast at the local hangout.

Man: Little boy, what are you doing? [Glass shatters] [Gasps] Are you okay?

Theo: Aaaaahhh!

Abe: Theo! Theo! Theo. Hey, kiddo. Are you okay?

[Monitor beeping]

Kate: My darling girl. You saved your father's life. I'm so proud of you. You know I'm not much of a churchgoer, but [Inhales, exhales deeply] today I was drawn into St. Luke's. I just -- I lit the candle. I-I felt for that moment that -- that god would protect you... my precious baby.

Chelsea: I have to help her. I have to help her the way she helped me.

Daniel: It's what she wants, Lucas.

Lucas: She doesn't know what she wants. She was just told she has lung cancer. She's not thinking clearly.

Daniel: I think you're short changing her. Has it occurred to you that she's given this a lot of thought, that she's an intelligent woman capable of making an informed decision about her life?

Lucas: I know how intelligent my Mother is. Just I don't know with you -- your involvement with her. I don't know.

Daniel: How about you not shortchange me, either? What kind of doctor do you think I'd be if I let my feelings for any patient interfere with my ability to do my job?

Lucas: I don't know. Sorry about that, okay?

Daniel: Of course. I, uh -- no, I understand. It's tough times.

Lucas: I just want you to know that my Mom, on the outside, she kind of acts tough and brave, but on the inside, she's very fragile.

Daniel: Well, then, it's a good thing she's got both of her boys by her side.

Philip: So a new rule, okay?

Kate: I'm ready.

Philip: I know you think you're always imposing, taking up too much of people's time, even your kids, but that's gonna stop right now, okay?

Kate: I promise.

Philip: You know, if it doesn't work out with Daniel, if you want another doctor, another opinion, another team of doctors --

Kate: I will speak up.

Philip: Okay.

Kate: But I have to tell you, there isn't anyone I would rather have fighting for me than Daniel.

Daniel: We should get going, Kate.

Kate: Okay. Look... I just want to tell you both that, uh, I am so thankful to both of you for, um, for being you. [Chuckles] And, um, I'll have someone call you -- all right? -- When everything is done, just to let you know it's all right.

Lucas: Well, there's no need for that, really.

Philip: We're coming with you.

Bo: Mr. Berman, Detective Bo Brady. We spoke on the phone.

Gregory: Pleased to meet you.

Bo: Likewise. This is Detective Hope Brady.

Hope: Thank you so much for coming.

Gregory: Only too happy to help. So, you must be Melanie's brother.

Max: Yeah. Max Brady.

Gregory: Good to meet you, too, Max. I only wish it could be under better circumstances.

Melanie: Okay, let's cut to the chase. What did Daddy leave us?

Lexie: Honey, are you all right? You didn't burn yourself, did you?

Abe: Did he? Is he all right?

Lexie: Yeah, he seems to be okay. That drink wasn't hot. Oh, gosh. I'm -- I'm sorry he spilled your drink.

Woman: Yeah, I am, too. I'm soaking wet.

Lexie: Like I said, I'm sorry.

Woman; Maybe you should keep a closer eye on him.

Lexie: And maybe you shouldn't tell me how to deal with my son.

Woman: Whoa. What is your problem?

Lexie: What's yours, lady?

Abe: Again, uh, his mother and I apologize. Everything just happened so quickly.

Woman: Oh, wait a second. Aren't you the guy running for mayor?

Abe: Yes, I am.

Woman: Oh. Yeah. Right. I saw you on TV when you made your announcement, and I heard what your ex-babysitter said about your son. Oh, wait. Is this the one she was talking about -- the autistic kid?

Lexie: Excuse me! Excuse me! He has a name! It's Theo!

Woman: You know what? Nobody's attacking you now, okay?

Evan: Excuse me. Excuse me. Ladies. Ladies. Listen, let's not let this get out of hand, all right? Ma'am, if you'll come with me, I'll be more than happy to replace your drink, get you some cake, whatever you like, all right?

Woman: Okay. You know what? I was just trying to tell her how to keep an eye on her kid.

Lexie: This is exactly what I'm talking about, Abe.

Abe: Can we not blow this out of proportion? It was an accident. Theo spilled her drink. The woman is insensitive. End of story.

Lexie: No. No, it's not. There are too many insensitive people in this world, Abe. I'm not gonna take the chance of any of them hurting my little boy. He's got a tough enough road ahead of him without being exposed to people who just don't get it! [Sniffles] I'm -- I'm sorry. I can't -- I can't do this. We're going home. Come on, sweetheart. Come on.

Gregory: "And so I leave my estate in its entirety to my daughter Melanie."

Max: Congratulations.

Gregory: That being said, I should inform you that Trent, unfortunately, died insolvent.

Melanie: Big shock.

Gregory: He was very deeply in debt, in fact -- no real estate, no other significant personal property.

Melanie: So basically this was just a big waste of time?

Gregory: Well, not entirely. He did have a small pension plan, as well as some profit participation and ownership in Nick Fallon's alternative-fuel project.

Melanie: Great. I mean, don't get me wrong. Nick is a really nice guy, but I just don't think I'm gonna be getting very rich off of that.

Max: Mr. Berman [Clears throat] If my sister was left the whole estate, whatever there was left of it, why was I invited to this reading?

Gregory: You were invited, Max, because it seems you're mentioned in the newly added codicil.

Gregory: "I, Trent Robbins, being of sound mind and body, hereby bequeath to my son, Max... a box... to be presented to him upon the reading of this codicil."

Max: A box? Great. You know what? To hell with that. I don't want a box. I don't want anything from him. [Door opens, closes]

Melanie: Well, I --

Bo: What are you doing?

Melanie: I'll give it to him later.

Bo: No, you won't. I'll give it to him when the time is right.

Dr. Knapp: The chemo drugs will be administered slowly, through an I.V. And while that's all going on, you get to relax, okay? Watch TV, read a magazine, visit with your sons.

Kate: I like that.

Dr. Knapp: Now, you know about the possible side effects, I'm sure -- nausea, fatigue. But everyone's immune system responds differently. You might be lucky. The side effects could be mild.

Kate: Okay. Well, then, I'll be hopeful. Should we get started with it?

Dr. Knapp: Sure. No more questions?

Kate: No. No more questions. I'm ready to go.

Dr. Knapp: Okay. Well, I'll check in on you later.

Kate: Thank you, Dr. Knapp.

Daniel: Uh, so will I.

Kate: Thank you.

Daniel: I'll walk you out.

Lucas: You know what I was thinking? Maybe the three of us could play a little boggle. I bet you they got it in the gift shop. Huh?

Philip: We used to have those all-night tournaments.

Lucas: That's right. And you used to never let us win, so we want pay back. We want a rematch.

Philip: Definitely.

Kate: Guys, I really appreciate it. I mean, I do, once again. But, um, you know, I'm fine. You don't have to hang out here.

Philip: Well, we want to.

Kate: [Sighs] Don't take it the wrong way, but I would really rather be alone. I would. I mean, I can watch TV, I can read, and -- I'll get a little bored with you two.

Philip: Come on, Mom. Come on.

Kate: No. I mean it. Please. Please. I'm gonna be fine, okay? I'll have Daniel call you once everything's over, okay?

Lucas: You sure about that?

Kate: I am absolutely sure.

Philip: All right. I'll call and check on you.

Kate: Okay, sweetie.

Philip: Bye.

Kate: I love you.

Philip: I love you, too. You coming?

Lucas: Yeah. Just give me a minute. I'll be right there.

Philip: All right.

[Door closes]

Kate: What are you doing? Go with your brother.

Lucas: I'd rather stay here with you.

Kate: Okay, sweetie, you're working for me now, and I forbid that. I need you to go check on Tony and Anna and make sure about that new ad campaign. Lucas, please, I-I-I need to do this my way.

Lucas: Fine. All right. I'll go. If you want me to work for you, I'll work. Well, you know I love you very much.

Kate: I love you.

Lucas: I still want a rain check on the boggle.

Kate: Oh, you have got it.

Bo: So, is there anything else in the will, Mr. Berman? Any other codicils or amendments?

Gregory: No, that's it.

Bo: Okay. Well, thanks for coming. I'll let you two have a moment. [Door closes]

Melanie: Well, sorry, you wasted a trip. Daddy's not really worth it, seeing as how you won't even be paid for your time.

Gregory: I wouldn't say the trip was a waste.

Melanie: No?

Gregory: Melanie, I didn't exactly reveal everything in the meeting.

Melanie: There's more?

Gregory: Your father left me this envelope. He asked that it be opened in the event of his death.

Lexie: Come on, sweetheart. We're going home.

Abe: Lexie, please.

Lexie: I'm -- I'm sorry, Abe. Come on, sweetheart.

Abe: Lexie, please wait. Lexie -- Lexie, listen to me! I am proud of you and our son. You're a wonderful mother, and he -- he's gonna be okay, because of that... and because both of us are committed to giving him the best life possible. Lex, we're -- we're real people dealing with real challenges, just like any other family. We have nothing to hide. For better or worse. In good moments... and in bad. The three of us -- we stick together.

Evan: Guys, I'm really sorry. The photographer's had an equipment malfunction. It's gonna be at least an hour before we're ready to start.

Abe: Thanks. Thanks, Evan.

Evan: I'm gonna call and let Mona know.

Abe: Uh, well, maybe you should go ahead and take Theo home. Think about what I said. And if you don't want to come back... well, I understand.

Lexie: We'll be back... because... we're family... and family sticks together. Thanks for taking care of me and Theo.

Kate: I didn't know you were here.

Chelsea: Oh, I, uh, I just wanted to bring you this. It's a -- it's a medal for the Greek Saint Sophia. Um, Grandpa Victor gave it to me when I wasn't really feeling well, and...it worked for me, so I'm just kind of hoping it'll do the same thing for you. Okay.

Melanie: Well, give it to me.

Gregory: I'm not sure that's the right thing to do, Melanie. Your name isn't even on it. I was thinking I should just turn it over to the detectives.

Melanie: What?

Gregory: Melanie, I'm only telling you first, as a courtesy, because we're old friends.

Melanie: But we're more than friends, Gregory. I've -- I've always kind of thought you as like a second father. And if you care about me as much as you say you do, then you'll give me the letter. You'll let me see it before anybody else does. We can figure out what my Dad was trying to say.

Gregory: All right. You talked me to it, Mel. But after you take a look at it, I'm counting on you to share that with the police.

Melanie: Okay. I will. I give you my word.

Gregory: Melanie, do the right thing.

Melanie: [Clears throat] Well, I was just leaving, so...

Hope: So soon?

Melanie: There's not much more to say.

Hope: Well, we just wonder how you're doing, Melanie.

Bo: I mean, the reading of the will must have been rough for you.

Melanie: How sweet of you to care.

Bo: But you did have a family friend here in Mr. Berman. That must have been... comforting.

Melanie: Not especially.

Hope: Did you have nice chat...after we left?

Melanie: We just said goodbye. That's about it, so...

Bo: You sure there wasn't something else?

Melanie: Positive. Now, if you guys are done cross-examining me, I'm gonna --

Hope: Not quite.

Melanie: What do you want with me now?

Bo: The letter. Aren't you at least gonna tell us what's in it?

Melanie: I'm done being harassed while I mourn my Father's death, and if it doesn't stop, I'm gonna press charges.

Nicole: The baby doesn't necessarily mean marriage.

E.J.: But if we don't get married, then we do have to work out some kind of custody arrangement.

Chloe: You're scared.

Philip: I'm scared to death.

Chloe: People beat cancer.
