Mallet: I see Reva with this miracle baby of hers. Why can't that be us? Why can't we have a miracle? We'll never know unless we try.
Marina: Okay. We'll try.
Josh: You're not fine! You're not even giving yourself a chance to get better. It's like you've surrendered, you've given up, and that's not the Shayne I know!
Shayne: But it's my life!
Natalia: Oh, give a vitamin to her?
Olivia: Yeah, I made sure she got them, just, you know, in case.
Natalia: She seemed fine at breakfast this morning.
Olivia: No. It's just, you know the way kids spread germs. This presentation is really important to her, so I, you know, just wanted to make sure that she’s... you know...
Natalia: I think you're more nervous than she is.
Olivia: Well, you know, she's got to stand up in front of an entire class and give a speech. She's never done that before.
Natalia: She's really excited. She practiced for hours.
Olivia: I know. She locked herself in her room. She won't let me hear it.
Natalia: Okay. So I know we normally like to give her healthy stuff, and, you know, fruit and stuff for dessert, but it's a big day.
Olivia: Perfect! Oh, yay! (Gasps) Hey, you.
Natalie: Hey, you look so grown up.
Emma: Thank you.
Olivia: Is that your speech? Do you want me to go over it for you, check everything?
Emma: I want it to be a surprise.
Natalia: All right. We have to get your coat on, Em.
Olivia: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Can you do that? Okay. Listen to me. No matter what happens today, your speech, I want you to know that I... I am so proud of you.
Natalia: We both are. (Horn honking)
Emma: It's the bus!
Olivia: Come here. Come here. You come here. You get your hat on.
Olivia: I cry, okay? I'm not made of stone.
Natalia: I know. I promise I won't tell anyone.
Natalia: You deserve it, Mom! (Laughter)
Mallet: Thank you. Do you want me to get some Chinese food tonight, pick it up on the way home? I mean, it's Tuesday. You know we always get Chinese on Tuesday’s.
Marina: I think we should do something different, you know, I mean, since that's what we always do. I mean, isn't that what we learned from your mole? I mean, sure, it wasn't cancer, but it could have been. You know, life is short.
Mallet: Are you saying no to Chinese?
Marina: You know, we were talking about having a baby. I knew when I married you that you probably couldn’t... I mean, we can, but...
Mallet: Hey, you know what? We're going to explore other options, okay?
Marina: You mean that?
Mallet: Yeah. I'll clean up, okay? And on the way home, I'll pick up something for dinner-- anything but Chinese. Yes, hi. I'd like to make an appointment with Dr. Norris today. He's the fertility expert, right?
Remy: Coffee for you.
Shayne: Thank you, sir.
Remy: Are you going to answer that?
Shayne: No. I don't want to talk to my dad right now.
Remy: How do you know it's him? Oh, man. 13 calls. He calls a lot, huh? Well, maybe if you'd talk to him, he'd stop bugging you.
Shayne: Or maybe if he stopped asking my friends to go behind my back, I would.
Remy: Yeah, I told Josh you'd figure that out, but he's just trying to help, man. Why don't you cut him some slack?
Shayne: No. He's trying to fix me, and you know there's a difference.
Remy: Okay, man, it was his idea to hook you up with Christina, but she's a kick-ass trainer. All right? She'll have you up and off that chair and begging for mercy.
Shayne: I don't think so. And hey, man, no offense to your wife, but I don't need a physical therapist. I'm fine.
Christina: Okay, keep working out like that, and you're going to put me out of a job.
Dinah: Thank you.
Christina: I'm Christina. I'm a trainer here.
Dinah: Oh, hi. I've actually seen you around with Remy. I should be thanking you. He's got a beautiful body.
Christina: Oh, I didn't know that you two were...
Dinah: Roommates. We used to live together-- I mean, just as friends.
Christina: Oh, yeah. I mean, we're friends, too. I don't mean to be personal, but who's the lucky guy? I mean, a body like that isn't just for a mirror.
Dinah: You're sweet. Well, I am waiting for someone to appreciate me for exactly who and what I am-- me.
Christina: So there's no guy?
Christina: Hmm. Because there's this guy who lives next door to Remy. His name is Shayne Lewis. I don't know, the way Remy was talking, it sounds like you two have something.
Dinah: Nope. There's nothing going on between us at all.
Christina: Oh. Okay. I was just wondering, because I just started training him, so...
Dinah: Oh, well. Then I'd have to say he's your problem now-- or maybe his father’s. Either way, I know that he's no longer mine.
Christina: Hmm. Well, nice to meet you.
Dinah: Yeah, you, too.
Emma: I got cookies today.
Boy: No way!
Teacher: Come on, kids. Everybody come sit down. Is the gold group ready for their presentation?
Teacher: Good for you. Now, just remember, everyone gets nervous. That's okay. If that happens, just take a breath and go on.
And why does it seem like everyone else
knows where to go where life ends up.
Olivia: Uh, you're... you're putting those in wrong.
Natalia: Oh, there's a right way and a wrong way?
Olivia: Yeah. See, if you put these on...
Natalia: What are you doing?
Olivia: If you put these on this shelf, it's easier for Emma to grab them.
Natalia: Why are you touching that? We divide out the chores.
Olivia: Because I'm doing it right!
Natalia: I do the heavy lifting.
Olivia: You do? What am I supposed to do?
Natalia: You do what you're good at. You go sit on the sofa and criticize me.
Olivia: Stop it. No, Dr. Rick said that I'm not helpless, that I'm getting stronger. Here, I'll show you.
Olivia: Are you ready? Watch this. What is in here?
Natalia: You're going to do laundry now?
Olivia: Yeah. Yeah. No. But I could if I wanted to.
Natalia: Yeah, right. (Laughs)
Olivia: Though I suppose I should. Emma and I were out feeding the ducks the other day, and we got our clothes all muddy. I couldn't believe how close they were letting us get to them.
Natalia: You sound like you had fun with the ducks.
Olivia: Stop it!
Natalia: You did!
Olivia: I'm not from mars. I like animals. Emma does, too. She loves them.
Natalia: Yeah. She's certainly adjusted very well to living here. Yeah?
Olivia: It's like she's never lived anywhere else.
Natalia: I can't imagine this house without her.
Olivia: You know what, I have got to go.
Natalia: Wait. You don't want to check my work first?
Olivia: Oh, no, no, no. You can do it the way you want to. Just so you know, when they all fall on the floor and break, I'm not going to help you clean it up.
Natalia: Oh, that's big talk, coming from someone with toothpaste right there on your lip.
Olivia: Oh, my gosh, really?
Olivia: Oh, that's great. Thank you.
Natalia: You're welcome. No problem. Actually, you know what you should do? Just make sure you take your thicker coat because, I don't care what Rick says, it's freezing outside.
Christina: Hey. You just missed your friend Dinah. How come you didn't tell me that you two lived together?
Remy: I don't know. How come you didn't tell me you're blowing off the MCATs?
Christina: Oh! Are those today?
Remy: You actually expect me to believe that you forgot about them?
Christina: Ah, no street shoes in the gym.
Remy: Are you kidding me?
Christina: No, I'm not kidding you. I need this job. And I can't just have people breaking the rules, just like I can't ditch my shift to take some stupid test.
Remy: Fine. But I saw the assistant manager on the way in, so I know you can leave whenever you want.
Christina: Yeah, well, you know your friend Shayne Lewis? He's coming in today, too, so actually I can't leave. And so what? If I can't take the test now, I'll take it again later. Who cares?
Remy: I do. And so do you.
Christina: Remy, I'm busy.
Remy: Christina, you're scared.
Paging Dr. Vendor. Paging Dr. Vendor.
Dinah: So that's it. It's not broken. It's not even fractured?
Nurse: You heard the doctor.
Dinah: Yup. Ice it and stay off of it. I should also stay away from Shayne Lewis, is what I should do.
Nurse: Did he drop the weight on your foot?
Dinah: Well, he might as well have, yeah, with all the trouble he's caused me. Thank you! Thank you. I can't believe I don't need crutches. Suck it up. Suck it up. Ow! Oh! Thank you.
Man: Just tell me, who is the guy?
Woman: I don't know, okay? Just some guy.
Man: Don't walk away from me.
Woman: Oh, are you going to stop me?
Shayne: Hey! Hey, buddy, why don't you take it easy.
Man: Hey, mind your business! Don't try to be a hero. Come on.
Officer: Okay, can I trust you to stay right here?
Marina: It's cool, Laverne. I've got this one. I know him. What's the charge?
Officer: Disorderly conduct, if he keeps his mouth shut. Tabby. We call him Tabby because he's a tabby cat.
Teacher: Very good, Derek. Any questions? (Applause) Next up is Emma Spencer.
Emma: What makes my family unique?
Frank: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. If you're looking for somebody to play poker with, the answer is absolutely no. You clean me out, and I don't have any more secrets to spill, so...
Olivia: All right, all right. What if we change it up? What if next time you play for... for charity?
Frank: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What did you just say?
Olivia: Yeah, charity. Like whatever money you win, whatever money I win, we just... we'll throw it in a pot, and we'll donate it to a charity.
Frank: Natalia really is having a positive influence on you.
Olivia: Excuse me?
Frank: Well, when I heard that you guys were going to be roommates, I have to say, I thought it was going to be a complete disaster, but I'm thinking I was wrong here. I think that she's good for both of you.
Olivia: No. This is good for Emma. Emma likes living there. Okay, me? Do you know we have to say grace before every meal? I open a yogurt, I have to say a prayer.
Olivia: We turn on the TV, and it's some sappy movie or Dr. Phil. I am barely surviving.
Frank: Because you look pretty happy to me.
Olivia: I'm actually pretty miserable. And the thought of having to take Emma away from the farm...
Frank: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I'm sorry. Is your health all right?
Olivia: It's worse than that, Frank. I'm feeling better every day.
Natalia: Thank you. I really appreciate you getting the doctor to rush this for my son. You know, he doesn't have a normal schedule.
Nurse: It's not a problem.
Natalia: Thanks. Hi, Dr. Bauer.
Rick: Oh, hey, Natalia. Dr. Bauer is my dad's name. You can call me Ricardo.
Natalia: Okay. Well, Olivia told me that you said she's doing much better.
Rick: Yeah. Oh, I understand. You probably want her out of your hair as soon as possible. It won't be long. I promise you.
Natalia: No. Olivia is actually not a bother at all.
Rick: Oh, that's very sweet. Look, I've known Olivia for a very, very long time. And she actually married my best friend.
Natalia: Emma's dad?
Rick: Yeah. Yeah, it didn't go very well. I mean, it ended badly, as a matter of fact. But I can tell you that she loved living in that mansion. She loved it. She didn't like the low life. She didn't like living... I mean, to be on that farmhouse, she must be, like, feeling like a caged animal.
Natalia: Is that what she told you? Did she tell you that she felt trapped?
Rick: No, not in so many words, no, no. But this is... I remember watching her and Frank go out, okay? Now, Frank is a blue-collar, salt-of-the-earth guy, right? But it just didn't work because, you know, she's an aristocrat. She likes expensive things. She likes nice hotels and artwork and that sort of thing.
Natalia: Yeah. No, you're right.
Rick: I'm not saying that Olivia hasn't changed. She has. And I'm sure she'd feel real bad once she's moved out and she's not leaving you with any rent money, because, I mean, she knows how rough it is on you and Rafe because he's still in jail, right?
Natalia: But when Olivia came to live with me, I thought, you know, I'd be helping her. I didn't think I would be taking advantage.
Rick: No, of course not. Excuse me a second.
Christina: Does this look scared to you?
Remy: Actually, it looks like you're stalling.
Christina: I just don't want to fail again. I studied, I was excited, and then, wham, my first panic attack.
Remy: You know the stuff backwards and forwards.
Christina: That's what I thought the last time.
Remy: So what? What, you're going to spare yourself the disappointment by not trying?
Christina: Something like that.
Remy: No. Hell, no. No wife of mine is a quitter.
Christina: It's a good thing we're getting a divorce then.
Remy: Actually, those papers you signed, you signed the wrong ones.
Christina: No. I signed the ones that you put in front of me.
Remy: Very true. Very true. But I kind of switched the divorce papers with the financial aid papers. You know, the one that stipulates you have to be married?
Christina: Are you kidding me? What were you thinking?
Remy: Well, sometimes I get a little crazy. I just thought you could use the money, which means you have to stay married to me a little bit longer, huh? And it means you have to take those tests.
Christina: So you get me to sign financial aid papers when I think that I'm signing divorce papers?
Remy: Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
Christina: What were you thinking?
Remy: I was thinking you could use the money, so when you pass the test, you can go to med school. Okay? I don't want a deadbeat wife. So let's go take those tests.
Shayne: You don't need to do that.
Marina: I'm trying to help you.
Marina: I don't know, Shayne. Maybe I should put them back on. We've known each other since we were in diapers, Shayne, and then you go off to some other country, I don't hear from you for years, and then, when do you show up again? On my wedding day. And you can't even tell me congratulations. You just tell me that everything that I'm doing is wrong.
Shayne: I didn't like your fiancé.
Marina: Right. Well, that makes sense. So then you kind of bust up my wedding, and today, you get yourself arrested because you're butting into an argument between two complete strangers.
Shayne: That dude was manhandling her.
Marina: Well, unfortunately for you, Shayne, she's defending her boyfriend, not you.
Marina: I don't understand. I know you, remember? I remember when you were in a wheelchair for the first time. And I remember how you wouldn't let anyone close to you, and you wouldn't take any help.
Shayne: I tried to tell you. Do you remember that? And what happened? I hurt you.
Marina: You were a kid, Shayne. Not that you asked or anything, but I wouldn't change it for anything. So who can I call, Reva or Josh?
Shayne: Neither one of them.
Marina: Look, Shayne, I know. I know you're right. I talked to the couple. The guy's a total jerk. You're right. But what if he wasn't, you know? What if they were just a normal couple having a normal argument?
Shayne: What's your point?
Marina: I don't know, it seems to me like you are looking for trouble, Shayne. Come on. Hanging out with Dinah Marler?
Shayne: I told you that Dinah Marler means nothing to me.
Marina: Fine. Fine. Shayne, I'm done, okay? I'm trying to help you, and now I'm done. So I'm going to have to book you, and you are going to need to put all of your things in this bag. I'm going to go make a phone call. And please, try not to do anything else stupid, okay?
Dinah: Stop! Stop it!
Mallet: You shouldn't be on your feet, remember?
Dinah: It's a bruised toe. They didn't even give me crutches, okay? You don't have to save me, for the millionth time!
Mallet: It's what I do. I'm a cop. Serve and protect-- and that includes ex-wives.
Dinah: Oh, okay. Don't ask.
Nurse: Dr. Norris is running a bit late.
Mallet: That's fine. No worries. I've got someone to cover my shift. Thank you.
Dinah: But Dr. Norris is a fertility specialist. So you and Marina are...
Mallet: Yeah. Yeah, if it's possible, we're going to try to make that happen. Marina and I really want to have a baby.
Frank: Hold on one second here. Just back up a little bit to the point of... in reference to your health. You just told me that you're feeling better, but it's making you more miserable? I'm not getting that.
Olivia: The only reason that Emma and I moved into the farmhouse was so that Natalia could help me. If I'm not sick anymore, there's no reason for us to stay.
Frank: So why don't you stay because you like it and Emma likes it?
Olivia: Emma likes it. Every day she walks around the farm, and she talks to the horses and the cows.
Frank: And what about you?
Olivia: I'm not a big fan of the cows.
Frank: (Laughs) What I'm asking you is, do you like living there?
Olivia: No. Yes. Yes, I like living on a farm. Can you believe it?
Frank: Yeah, that is a little strange. But you know what? I haven't seen you happier, and I think, you know, Natalia is good for you. So why don't you just take it maybe a little easy on her and...
Olivia: Hey, back off. I'm behaving.
Frank: Is it the fresh air? Is that what...
Olivia: It's not so much the farm, Frank. If I had my way, we'd eat the cows. It's everything. It's Em and Natalia, and the way we interact. You know, it's like we finally have a place where we belong.
Frank: Well, it sounds to me like you have a home.
Olivia: No. It's Natalia’s home. It's temporary for Em and me. And when we move out, you need to look after Natalia.
Frank: I can do that, absolutely. But you know what, Olivia? I'm never going to be rich, and I'm not flashy, and...
Olivia: And you know what? If you ask Natalia...
Frank: The thing I can do for her, though, is I can protect her. I can keep her safe, and I can be there for her.
Olivia: And that's exactly what she would tell you she wants.
Olivia: No, it's not great. Because if that's all she needed, then you two would be married by now.
Frank: So what does she need?
Olivia: She needs to be challenged, Frank. Because she's smart and she's capable. But somewhere along the line, she got it in her head that all she could be in her life was a mother-- not that there's anything wrong with that-- or a waitress. When she first started working for me, all she would do is pick up my dry cleaning and feed me my meds. I mean, if I asked her to do one little thing that was challenging for her, she'd tell me no, that she couldn't do it.
Frank: So what did you do?
Olivia: I told her it was her job. She better figure out a way to do it.
Frank: And that didn't scare her off?
Olivia: It scared the heck out of her. But because I believed in her, I mean, I think she started to realize that she's capable. She ran staff meetings while I was sick.
Olivia: She was great. She was so great! And I don't think I've ever seen her happier. That's what you need to do, Frank. You need to see Natalia not just for who she is, but who she can be.
Shayne: You going to make me walk in the rest of the way?
Marina: Maybe. Last chance. You get a phone call.
Shayne: I do? Sausage, onions, extra cheese.
Marina: Wow, you're funny. No pizza, but parents.
Shayne: No parents.
Marina: Fine. Fine, Shayne. You've got to call somebody. What about your Uncle Billy?
Shayne: No Billy's.
Marina: Remy? Marah? Maybe she can talk some sense into you.
Shayne: No Remy's. No Marah’s. And you don't have to call anybody, okay? I'm fine. I don't need you to go through the whole phone book.
Marina: I need some help.
Mallet: This is a little weird. This feels weird.
Dinah: It is.
Mallet: I'm talking to you about babies and stuff.
Dinah: It's not my idea of a good time, but if it's what you want, then it makes me happy.
Mallet: Well, we don't even know if it's possible. I mean, that accident happened a long time ago.
Dinah: If you are willing to put yourself through so many tests and get yourself rewired, then you must be pretty crazy about... what's her name?
Mallet: (Laughs) Marina.
Dinah: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Mallet: Yes, I am. I am crazy about her. And she wants a family real bad. And she married me, even though I probably can't have kids.
Dinah: I remember when I was your special project, and I hated that. I hated that. That didn't work.
Mallet: Just because it didn't work out doesn’t... hey, projects are good. Everybody needs a challenging project, something beyond themselves.
Dinah: Yeah. I thought I had that with my brother, but that didn't work either.
Nurse: The doctor is ready to see you, Mr. Mallet.
Mallet: Thank you. Okay. Let's go see what this is all about. You know what? I don't think you should stop trying at all, because I think your special project is still out there. Wish me luck.
Dinah: Good luck.
Mallet: Thank you. (Phone ringing)
Dinah: Hello, Marina.
Marina: Hey. I'm down at the police station. I think you should come down here.
Emma: And that's what makes my family unique.
Teacher: Thank you, Emma. Now, before I open it up for questions, I just want to say, regarding Emma’s family, just because it was a little different, I just want everyone to be very polite. So are there any questions or comments for Emma? Derek?
Derek: Your family looks fun.
Emma: It is. I love my family.
Teacher: Any other questions?
Natalia: Hey. I'm glad that you're here. I think we need to talk.
Olivia: Yeah, I think we do, too.
Natalia: I owe you an apology.
Olivia: Why? Why are you...
Natalia: Because I've been selfish in keeping you away from your real life, all because I'm missing my son.
Olivia: Oh, you don't have to apologize for missing Rafe.
Natalia: Yes, I do, because having Emma here has been... it's been so wonderful.
Olivia: You don't have to say that. Listen to me. I'm the one who needs to apologize to you. I mean, this is your house and this is the start of your new life, and I barge in here with my daughter and my health issues. And we both know that you could have helped me out at the Beacon. So, you know, I'm feeling better, and there's really no reason to stay here, so you should really have your home back.
Natalia: I don’t... why are you crying?
Olivia: Because I really like it here, and Emma likes it here.
Natalia: Then stay!
Olivia: I thought you wanted us to move out!
Natalia: No! I thought... I thought you wanted to move out!
Olivia: No! Well, so, can we stay?
Natalia: Yeah! Of course! (Laughter)
Olivia: I'm sorry. (Laughter)
Dinah: You must really like it here.
Shayne: How did you... Marina called you. Wow!
Dinah: Yup. Very good timing, very good timing.
Shayne: You need a hobby. I recommend knitting.
Dinah: You know, I figured you were going to say that. And I thought about walking away. Because that's what most people do when they are told so clearly to get lost. And then I realized what you may not know is, that I truly know where you're coming from.
Shayne: I don't need your help.
Dinah: Yeah, well guess what. This isn't about you, Shayne. It's about me. I really can help you if you just... if you let me.
Olivia: Thank you. I don't believe us. That's just embarrassing.
Natalia: It's just... it's just kind of funny. You know? If somebody had told me that we would be living together a year ago and liking it...
Olivia: I would have decked them.
Natalia: I know you would have. Here we are, though, you know, just enjoying it. And I want you to know it's not just... it's not just all about Emma or your rent money.
Olivia: Yeah. No, and it's not because I need your help.
Natalia: No, I know, because you're stacking the dishes next time.
Olivia: Well, I should. I can do it better. (Laughs) Hey!
Olivia: Don't you look happy.
Emma: It went great.
Olivia: Oh, great!
Emma: Everybody clapped for me.
Olivia: Of course they did. So are we going to get to hear it? Oh, we've been invited to family day, where all the kids are going to read their stories out loud.
Natalia: Are you telling me that we're not allowed to hear your story until then?
Olivia: Oh, jeez. Okay. Well, we'll wait until everybody else does.
Natalia: All right. How about some hot chocolate?
Olivia: Yay! Give me a hug. I'm so proud of you. Come on.
Christina: I hope you're happy. I just blew through the MCATs in record time.
Christina: Good? This is what you wanted, for me to fail?
Remy: I wanted you to succeed. And I figured if you're pissed at me, you'd forget to be nervous and freak out.
Christina: You planned to make me mad?
Remy: I wanted you to do your best. That's what husbands do for their wives, right? You know, it's freezing, okay, so come on, let's get something warm to drink.
Doctor: I'm really sorry, but even now, with the advances in technology and...
Mallet: So there's nothing you can do?
Marina: It's okay. It's okay. Hey, we knew this was a long shot, right? And I'm sure there are lots of other ways that we could have kids.
Doctor: Absolutely. Here's a few pamphlets for you guys to look over, and I'll just leave you alone for a few minutes, all right?
Mallet: Hey, before you dig into those pamphlets, how are you?
Marina: I'm okay. I mean, it's like I said, this was a long shot. I'm more worried about you.
Mallet: Hey, I'm fine. I'm fine. This isn't over yet, you know? One way or another, we're going to have a baby. And it's going to be our baby.
Shayne: Guard! This visit is over.
Dinah: I hope you let me help you. I'm coming.
Shayne: I think you should get a cat.
Dinah: Hmm. I'm allergic. You know, he hasn't called anyone, not even his lawyer?
Officer: Not even his girlfriend.
Dinah: He doesn't have a girlfriend. (Phone ringing)
Officer: This is Officer Larkin.
Dinah: Hey, Jeffrey, it's Dinah. I need to see you. Well, it's about a girl with no name.
One hundred red bows on the old sycamore by the road.
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Reva: Yeah. They said you weren't seeing any visitors, but I'm not really a visitor.
Josh: You got yourself arrested on purpose? Why didn't you just call me and let me handle this?
Reva: I can take care of my son!
Shayne: Would you guys keep it down!
Josh: What, are we bothering the pimps and prostitutes?
Mallet: Step inside and join the family.
Josh: Oh, come on, what's the charge?
Mallet: For being a royal pain.
