Natalia: Ava needs you. I know you miss her so much.
Olivia: Maybe you can take Emma for a few days.
Natalia (whispering): She's going to yell at me.
Emma: She's not going to yell at you, because I have two mommies.
Bill: To my future in-laws, peace and prosperity from now on.
Marina: They found a match.
Mallet: Yeah, someone right here in the hospital. He's going to do the transfusion.
Shayne: Promise me that you're not going to say anything to Mallet and Marina.
Dinah: I promise you.
Emma: Can you make those pancakes like you used to?
Natalia: You mean the ones that are shaped like hearts? I already did. Yay.
Emma: Mommy doesn't listen to music at breakfast anymore. She watches the news.
Natalia: Well, you know, your mommy likes to know what's going on in the world before she starts her day. She used to watch the news here too, remember? What's the matter, sweetie?
Emma: I just liked having both all the time.
Natalia: Music and news?
Emma: You and Mommy.
Marina: You've got to be kidding me.
Marina: It's Henry’s hospital bill. They didn't waste any time.
Frank: Don't worry about this. You know, with Mallet having his new salary, now being a detective, and I can help you out some.
Marina: It's not a sure thing. Mallet, I mean.
Frank: What are you talking about? I thought he was taking your job.
Marina: Well, he was, but Chief Wolfe said that they have to do some cutbacks. Now we don't if he's going to get the job or not. I don't know what we're going to do.
Remy: Okay. Christina, I wasn't expecting this, and it's no big deal.
Buzz: No, no, no. It's a big deal.
Remy: I don't want to worry her.
Buzz: No. Try again.
Remy: Okay. All right. Christina, we really need to talk.
Buzz: No, stop.
Remy: What? What?
Buzz: Because nothing good ever comes after those words.
Remy: Getting fired isn't good.
Buzz: You weren't fired. There were cutbacks, all right? Try that. Say that. You know, let go, laid off. All right? It happens to everybody, it happened to her.
Remy: Yeah, you're right. You're right. When she gets here, I'm just going to flat out tell her.
Christina: Someone got her business license.
Remy: Wait, they liked your business plan?
Christina: Most of it. Finding a space is going to be difficult, but I applied for a small business loan.
Buzz: Good luck with that.
Remy: Happy thoughts, Buzz.
Christina: It's okay. I know that they aren't giving out a lot of those these days, but I'm still hopeful.
Remy: It's been a while since I've seen you like this.
Christina: Well, it's like I took all of the energy that I was putting in med school and I swung it in a whole new direction. I'm really going to have my own day care center. And soon I will be able to take you out, which doesn't let you off the hook but it does mean that my boyfriend won't be the only one with a job.
Remy: How about that? He's a kidder.
Alan: I need to speak with you.
James: Sorry, Granddad. Later, okay.
Alan: You know, Phillip, James has no respect for his elders.
Phillip: Of course not. He's a teenager. He thinks he knows everything and we're just people that get in his way.
Alan: Well, I would take him on as your number one project since you want to fix everything in the family.
Phillip: I'll deal with James. I just have to take it slow with him. He's a little too much like me.
Alan: Well, now you'll get to see what it's like being me.
Phillip: Hopefully I've learned something from your mistakes. I guess we'll find out.
Alan: I think he really needs a firm hand. Maybe you should look into military school for James.
Phillip: (Laughs) That would be a good idea. He'd come to hate us even more than he already does. Not to mention the fact that Beth would never go for it. No, I just want to get him back to Lincoln Prep before the end of the semester so he doesn't flunk out.
Alan: It's not Beth’s decision to make, Phillip.
Phillip: She's his mother and she and Lillian are the ones that raised him for the most part.
Alan: Ah, well, remind me to send them both flowers and congratulate them on doing such a fine job with James.
Phillip: Look, James is fine. He's a teenage boy.
Alan: Your plan to make everything better has kind of hit a wall, hasn't it, Phillip? James is languishing around the house thinking he's better than everyone else. Then there's Elizabeth, who's engaged to that loser.
Phillip: No, she's engaged to that Lewis.
Alan: Well, it's the same thing. Now, if you want to run this family, I would suggest to you that you take charge of your children before they slip further into the abyss.
Lizzie: Okay. So I was thinking that the bridesmaids' dresses will be very "Gone With the Wind" except not too puffy because I want them to be able to wear them again.
Bill: Okay. And the umbrellas, too, or...
Lizzie: I am going to give that to the bridal party as a present. Ruffle parasol. Who couldn't use one?
Bill: Very practical.
Lizzie: And then the groomsmen, they're all going to need to dress like Rhett Butler, except with top hats. And I think that the dove wrangler could double as a bouquet handler because lilies of the valley, they're beautiful, right? Highly toxic. So I don't want a dove or a dog to eat it and get sick.
Bill: So you're carrying poisonous flowers? What?
Lizzie: I thought you said that I could have the wedding, you know, of my dreams.
Bill: Baby, of course you can. Top hats, poisonous flowers, whatever you want.
Lizzie: (Laughs) Come on.
Bill: What? Oh.
Lizzie: Could you imagine Billy in that top hat?
Bill: I could see that. I could see that. Now where is that lingerie catalogue? Maybe we could talk about the honeymoon.
Lizzie: Oh, I wasn't planning on wearing very much.
Phillip: Hey. Sorry. I'm looking for your brother James.
Lizzie: Haven't seen him.
Phillip: Oh. What are you two doing?
Lizzie: Just looking at magazines. Dad?
Lizzie: They're bridal magazines. I could use your opinion.
Phillip: Not exactly my specialty, but okay. I'll take a look.
James: It's a computer glitch. Should be fixed within the hour. Then we'll get back to making sweet money together. Let me know if you have any other problems. My Independence Fund International. Yeah, it's crazy here at the office.
Christina: The loan officer was a little concerned about my overhead costs. It's not that I need that much room, but it's just finding the right place.
Marina: What are we talking about?
Buzz: Her day care center.
Christina: I thought that with everything is that's going on, the rents would be lower.
Remy: She's stuck for a location?
Marina: How about my house? I mean, I'm home with Henry during the day anyway. So I don't think it would be a big deal. I mean, Blake can work most weekdays here. I could cover the weekends.
Christina: I can't just use your house.
Marina: You could if we were partners.
Christina: Okay, girl, talk to me.
Buzz: I think I'm going to be living at a day care center. Why didn't you tell her about the job?
Remy: I can't tell her now.
Buzz: Remy? Pardon me a moment or two. This is a small town
Christina: We're business partners.
Marina: This is going to be awesome. Now I can do both. I can stay home with Henry and I can work a job. I cannot wait to tell Mallet.
Christina: And once the loan is approved, we'll figure out how we're going to cover the rest of the costs.
Remy: Yeah, yeah, but even with the loan and her house, you'll still need more money.
Christina: I'll find a way.
Remy: I can lend you some cash.
Natalia: You are always, always going to be welcome here. Any time.
Emma: But we can't move back in.
Natalia: That's going to... you know, that's something that, you, me and your mom are going to have to just discuss.
Emma: Because you and Frank still might get married.
Natalia: I'm always going to care about Frank, but we're not going to be getting married.
Emma: So when Mom comes back from her trip, we can move back in?
Natalia: You are just like your mother. You're so stubborn. You get something in your head.
Natalia: Oh, honey. I don't know. You know... your mom and I still have a lot of things that we need to figure out. Okay? But when you were living here with your mom, it was a very happy, special time for me.
Emma: For me too.
Natalia: Really? Give me a hug.
Lizzie: I know. You'll look amazing in that top hat. Aren't those the prettiest puffy dresses you've ever seen? It so "Gone With the Wind."
Phillip: Hey, you know what? We could do a Civil War reenactment at the reception. I mean, not on the dance floor but we could do it off to the side on the lawn.
Lizzie: Uh... well, I hadn't thought of that.
Phillip: War is a great theme for a wedding, particularly in this family. We could rent an old plantation down in Georgia.
Bill: You're being played, player. (Laughter)
Lizzie: Oh, that's funny. That's really funny.
Phillip: You know, honey, you're an amateur.
Bill: Well, she had me going before.
Phillip: Of course she did, you're the groom. You got to go with whatever she says. I'll wear anything you want any place you want. It doesn't matter how you get married. It just matters what you feel on that day. I love seeing you smile. I'm so glad to see you happy.
Lizzie: Well, it took us a while. You know, he finally got smart, so that helps.
Phillip: Keeps you on your toes.
Bill: She does, she does.
Lizzie: Come here.
Phillip: Keeps me on my toes. All right. I'll let you get back to your planning and I'll go find your brother James.
Lizzie: Good luck. He's like a phantom.
Phillip: Don't worry, I know all the good hiding places in this house. I'll track him down.
Lizzie: Thank you. Don't really know yet how to deal with my dad. I'm not too good at it. So thanks.
Bill: I think you're doing just fine. And it's my job description to save you from yourself so you're all right.
Lizzie: Well, now that dad has James to worry about he's not as focused on me. I think that's probably good for the both of us.
Bill: I'll tell you, you're still his favorite.
Lizzie: I don't think that parents are supposed to have favorites.
Bill: Maybe not. But let me tell you, James is not the easiest guy to like.
Lizzie: He's practically a kid.
Bill: And that is why I'm making an effort, but I mean, there's something about him. He's never looking me in the eye when I talk to him. Very weird, very weird.
Bill: Maybe he's intimidated by you.
Bill: No, I don't think that's it. But he definitely has a problem with me.
James: I can assure you it's only temporary, Mr. Pickering.
Mr. Pickering: I need access to my accounts now.
James: I apologize for the inconvenience. My best people are working on this.
Mr. Pickering: My colleagues said you can trust Independence. Don't disappointment me.
James: Won't happen. I'll get back to you about that problem tomorrow. Hey, Dad. What's up?
Phillip: That sounded like a business call.
James: No, it was the Headmaster checking up on me. I've been handing in my homework online.
Phillip: Oh. Are you keeping up with your classes okay?
James: No, I'm actually way ahead.
Phillip: Well, that's good. Look, I know down in Florida you said you had something important you wanted to talk to me about. If it's got something to do with school...
James: No, I figured out a way to skip the lines at the theme park without using my express pass.
Lizzie: There you are.
Phillip: Yeah. I found him.
James: I guess I'm popular.
Lizzie: You are. You know, Bill wants to see you, too.
Lizzie: We are developing some interactive business software and we want it to be fun, like a video game. And I thought, "Who is the video game superstar?"
James: Not me. I'm too busy studying.
Lizzie: Come on. Just hear us out. Honestly, I think you and Bill would be great at this.
James: I don't have time for this, Lizzie.
Lizzie: If you become more involved in your family on your own, it will stop Granddad from trying to think of ways to drag you in. Trust me, I learned that the hard way. Come on.
Marina: I'm going to call Mallet and just run this by him.
Christina: Remy, about the money.
Remy: Yeah. Just think of it as an investment.
Christina: And I am so happy that you are invested in me. Because knowing that you believe in me is what gets me through those scared moments when I don't know what the heck I'm getting into.
Remy: I'm just doing my part to make my girlfriend rich.
Christina: Do you think that running a day care center is going to make me rich? Because we need to talk if that's what you think. (Laughter)
Remy: I just want you to be happy.
Christina: I don't know about you dipping into your savings. What if you suddenly need a couple thousand dollars? $3,000 short even with the loan.
Remy: You know what? I'm going to go to the bank and I'm going to check my balances. It is not a problem.
Christina: I can't help, the fact that you've offered is worth a million bucks. Thank you.
Remy: You and Marina better get to work.
Buzz: I'll walk you out. What are you doing?
Remy: I don't know. I don't know what I'm doing. Christina saying things are up again, Marina comes in, "Hey, how about you use my house?" I'm sitting here twiddling my thumbs, Buzz, and I don't know what I'm doing, but I got to do something. I have to do something.
Buzz: Remy! Frank? Hey, you look terrible.
Frank: Thank you, Pop. What, I don't shave for one day and... the world is not ending, okay?
Buzz: What are you doing?
Frank: I was upstairs doing some repairs.
Buzz: Let me make you something to eat, okay?
Frank: No, no, I'm not looking at that look anymore. Okay, look, I understand that I freaked out the family the other day, but I'm over it. I'm fine.
Buzz: If you say so.
Natalia: Did you move the cake flour?
Cashier: Yeah, it's in aisle two now.
Buzz: Hi. You shopping?
Natalia: I'm getting some baking supplies. You?
Buzz: Picking things up.
Natalia: I'm sorry, Buzz. For everything. You know I never wanted to hurt Frank. I never wanted to hurt anyone in your family.
Buzz: Frank's a good person.
Natalia: I'm really hoping that we can still be friends.
Buzz: Well, maybe someday. I don't know. Frank deserved better.
Natalia: I know. I feel awful.
Buzz: Well, maybe you could make it up. Maybe give him another chance.
Natalia: What was I supposed to do? Just marry him anyway even though it didn't feel right?
Buzz: I'm just a little surprised, you know. I thought about... I thought about you as family. I thought I knew you.
Natalia: You do know me.
Buzz: You know, I'm all for following your heart. But you follow your heart all the way to the altar and then you run away and pretend like it didn't happen.
Natalia: No, no, I'm... I'm not pretending anything anymore, Buzz. I don't want to hurt anybody. I don't want to hurt any of you.
Buzz: I don't know what to say. I mean, you commit to Frank, you commit to everything, you commit to family, you commit to me. Next time think of that before you jump in.
Natalia: I'm sorry. Buzz, I'm sorry.
Doris: Frank, how you doing?
Frank: Doris, where's that crack security team of yours?
Doris: One of them is still in traction, actually. Look, let me buy you a drink. I'm sure you could use it.
Frank: Doris Wolfe, come on down. She's the next contestant on "Let's throw Frank a pity party."
Doris: Why don't you try shaving, clean up a little bit?
Frank: Well, you know, I've been working round the clock. You know what that's all about, don't you?
Doris: Look, Frank, I am really sorry about what happened at Farley's, okay? If there's anything I can do, anything at all, you just let me know.
Frank: Make Mallet a detective.
Doris: Okay, I was just trying to be nice.
Frank: You see, he naturally thought he would be reinstated once Marina quit, but, well, Chief Wolfe now with the budget cuts and all that doesn't look like that's going to happen.
Doris: Okay, I'll talk to my cousin and I'll see what I can do. I'll talk to him and I will make it happen.
Frank: Great. While you're doing that, see if you can do anything for Rafe. It would mean the world to Natalia to have him back.
Doris: After what she did to you? You are still going to try to help her?
Frank: Look, just because she didn't marry me doesn't mean that she's any less deserving.
Doris: Wow, you're a good man, Frank.
Frank: Doris, just do me a favor will you? Just make it happen.
Felicia: And what does this gentleman do?
Mel: He's in real estate law. I think we're going to the movies.
Felicia: I can't remember the last time we went to a movie. Clayton?
Clayton: I'm sorry, what?
Felicia: When was the last time we went to movies?
Clayton: I'm not sure. Why?
Felicia: That's where Mel is going on her date. I think your father's developing short-term memory loss.
Clayton: My memory is fine, Felicia.
Felicia: I'm hoping it's not so I can spend lots of money and you'll forget all about it for my new remodeling project.
Mel: How is that coming?
Felicia: Fantastic. I finally found a contractor. I'm knocking out the wall between your room and Remy’s room and I'm creating a library.
Clayton: We have lots of books.
Mel: Who calls it a library when it's in their own home? Next thing you'll be building a conservatory. It will be like living in a game of clue.
Felicia: (Laughs) It was Dr. Boudreaux with the ice pick in the conservatory.
Mel: No, Mom, I don't think there was an ice pick. I think it's a candlestick.
Felicia: Oh. That makes sense. Less messy.
Mel: Only you would worry about a mess in your board game crime scene.
Felicia: Clayton, I'm going to clobber you with something if you look at that phone again. Who is that?
Mel: Dad, is it a student?
Clayton: No, it's nothing. (Cell phone rings)
Mel: Oh, man. Guys, I've got to go.
Mel: Hospital. And Daddy, put the phone away if you know what's good for you. Love you guys.
Clayton: You have a good day.
Felicia: Have fun on your date. No kissing.
Christina: I didn't notice a time. I have to go to see my grandma before visiting hours--
Marina: Go, go, go. I'll call you later.
Christina: Thanks, partner. (Laughter) Grandma? I was just coming to see you. What are you doing here?
Loretta: I was released. I'm a free woman.
Christina: It's not HMO.
Loretta: No, no, no. I'm strong enough the doctors let me give the outside world another try.
Christina: I would have come pick you up.
Loretta: That was the best walk across the street I've ever taken.
Christina: Oh, Grandma, let me introduce you to my friend and new business partner, Marina. Marina, this is my grandmother.
Loretta: New business partner?
Christina: It's all... and let me introduce you to Buzz.
Loretta: I know Mr. Cooper.
Buzz: Loretta? Who let you out?
Loretta: I came back for my barbecue recipe you stole from me.
Christina: You two know each other?
Buzz: The sauce is my own creation. Glad to see you on your feet again...
Loretta: Don't change the subject.
Christina: I'm sorry. What sauce are we talking about? Is this the sauce from the Buzz burgers?
Loretta: The Loretta burgers.
Buzz: Doesn't have the same ring to it, Loretta.
Christina: Okay, okay. Grandma, you know what? Let me tell you about my new business plan, okay. Come on.
Mel: Hey, on my way to work and I don't have any cash. What's wrong?
Remy: I wish I was rich.
Mel: Why? What's going on.
Remy: Christina's starting this day care center. She's having a bit of a cash flow problem. I want to help but my bank account's on life support.
Mel: That's sweet that you're trying especially on an EMT salary.
Remy: Maybe I should sell my car.
Mel: Remy, no.
Remy: This is important to Christina. When she missed out on med school, it knocked her down. She's finally picking herself back up.
Mel: Well, there is somewhere you can go if you're short on cash.
Remy: The First National Bank of Boudreau?
Mel: What? Dad floated me a couple of loans when I first started out.
Remy: No, no.
Lizzie: We're trying to take Spaulding it in a youthful direction. There's going to be a think tank of college students. Like, do you have anything better to do?
Bill: I think it would be nice to collaborate on a project. I'm going to be your brother-in-law soon.
Lizzie: Yeah, you guys get to know each other.
James: I don't know anything about business. I'll stick to Algebra if that's cool.
Lizzie: You know what? Actually, you know, it's more about family. I just feel like you're always the one getting edged out. I don't know if it's because you haven't been around, but now you're home. I want you to be a part of everything. You know, we're all just moving forward into this... this really positive direction with the wedding and the business and Dad being home, and you deserve part of that happiness. (Cell phone alert rings) Let it go to voice mail. Look, we can go and you and Bill can brainstorm.
James: It's a nice thought, Lizzie, but your version of big fun sounds to me like another way of recruiting for the Spaulding army. I'm not interested in the family business. I'm not even interested in this family.
Alan: Apologize to your sister.
James: Sorry, Liz.
Phillip: Let him go.
Alan: You know, it's as if he's come home to run away. Now someone has to be the enforcer. If you're not going to set limits, then it falls to me.
Phillip: No. Look, I am still getting to know James. All right? As far as I can see he's the pretty typical teenager. He's got a lot of attitude and very little focus. But until I see more than that, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Alan: Well, you're wrong, Phillip because that boy has problems. And you'd better find out what they are before it is too late.
Doris: Is Olivia home?
Natalia: No. Olivia doesn't live here anymore.
Doris: Oh, that's funny. I saw the little pink sneakers and I just thought...
Natalia: Emma's here. I'm watching Emma for Olivia. She's away for a little while to see Ava. I'm sorry. I just got back from a trip. I haven't unpacked. I was supposed to start baking an hour ago.
Doris: Oh, you bake. How sweet.
Doris: Bake... no, no. You seem a little rattled. Are you okay? Is it the baking?
Natalia: Yeah. I just got back. Olivia and I went away for a few days. We just needed a little trip. It was good. We had a nice time and we were able to talk about some stuff.
Doris: Now you're back and reality is a little different. You go away and you're in your own little bubble and... well, I hate to burst that bubble, but it is all part of coming out.
Natalia: I don't know what you think I am.
Doris: What do you think you are? Look, really, I did just come over here to let you know that I am petitioning to get Rafe a new hearing.
Natalia: Thank you.
Doris: You're welcome.
Natalia: Why would you do that?
Doris: Because I owed Frank a favor, and he used it to help the woman who just dumped him. Enjoy your baking.
Mel: Hey! Hey! I would help you if I wasn't saving for Leah’s college fund. Rick and I thought we had enough but investments took a big hit.
Remy: I wouldn't ask you for money, Mel.
Mel: You would ask me before you'd ask Dad.
Remy: He would just be disappointed in me. He's finally proud of me.
Remy: Yes, finally and it doesn't help that I have a beautiful, smart, overachieving sister. It's not a compliment.
Mel: All right. I'm sorry. I'll dumb it down the next time if it makes you feel better.
Remy: You're about ten years too late.
Mel: Oh, boo-hoo. Listen, I love you, okay. You've got to get over yourself. I've got to go to work.
Remy: I've got to find Dad.
Mel: He's at Towers with Mom. Why? Are you going to ask for the money?
Remy: I might. Christina is more important than my weird hang-ups with Mom and Dad. Mom sent me a text message. She said no kissing.
Mel: Shut up. Good luck.
Loretta: So you'll be baby-sitters?
Christina: No, no, it's so much more than that.
Loretta: Christina, I love you, but when somebody leaves a child with you to look after and goes away and then comes back later to pay you, it's called baby-sitting.
Marina: (Laughs) I love this woman. Christina, you and me have to take her on board with us.
Buzz: Stop conspiring with the enemy.
Loretta: My ears still work Buzz Cooper!
Bill: Wow. Now there's a cake you want to smash your face into right there.
Lizzie: Okay, I'll order it.
Bill: I have a question. Why am I looking at brides magazines and you're looking at business proposals?
Lizzie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm rereading this and I just don't understand why James wouldn't want to work on it. It's really good.
Bill: You heard what he said. He doesn't want to be Spauldingized. He could become more of a Spaulding. Just made it up.
Lizzie: I think that you are becoming Spauldingized.
Bill: No, no, no. Maybe you are becoming Lewisized.
Lizzie: That doesn't sound as good.
Bill: No, it doesn’t. Come on. Just forget about your brother, all right? You're not his keeper.
Lizzie: I know. I know, and I know that he likes to pretend like nothing bothers him, but deep down I think it does. This job is a way for him to make money of his own.
Bill: You know what? I think your brother just doesn't want to work with me.
Lizzie: Whatever is going on with James, it has nothing to do with you. Okay?
James: Yes, I'm aware of the problem and I'm working on it.
Phillip: Hey, James?
James: The problem will be fixed and I'll call you later.
Phillip: Hey, is everything okay? I feel like you kind of ran out on your sister back there.
James: She was trying to dump her work on me. She already has a lap dog.
Phillip: Roxy is no good with numbers.
James: Good one, Dad. See you later.
Phillip: James, James, James. I think we need to talk.
James: You going to lecture me about running out on my family?
Phillip: Look, I have this feeling that you've got something going on with you. But, you know, you've done such a bang-up job of insulating yourself from the rest of the family, you don't have anybody you can talk to about it. So talk to me. You know, I mean, I understand that we've got a lot of catching up to do and you have a hard time trusting me right now. But, you know, I'm a good listener and if you give me half a chance you will see that I'm on your side. So talk to me.
James: What if I told you that you could get in on the ground floor of an amazing investment opportunity.
Natalia: Hi, Olivia. It's me. Please call me back. It's not an emergency or anything. Emma is doing great. I just... I know what we said at the spa and everything. It's really kind of hard here without you. You know, I just... I guess I just... I really want you to come home.
Bill: Yeah, okay. That will be great. We will be here. All right. I'll see you then. Thank you. Okay. That was my mom and she wants an update on the wedding plans.
Lizzie: She's excited. You're her favorite.
Bill: I think I am her favorite. Listen, she'll come over and you can talk cake and canopies. And when she leaves, you and I are talking about the honeymoon.
Lizzie: I like practicing the honeymoon.
Bill: I like that, too. Okay. I'm going to cancel my...
Lizzie: No, no, no, no, no. We can later. I need to find James. I think I need too apologize for trying to force his Spauldingization.
Bill: Spauldingization. That's nice.
Lizzie: I thought so.
Bill: Let's forget James.
Lizzie: Okay. How much time do we have?
Bill: Enough time to do it twice.
Remy: Hey, guys.
Felicia: Oh, hey. What a nice surprise.
Clayton: Remy, have you eaten?
Remy: No, no, actually I need a favor.
Felicia: Oh, I've got to go meet my contractor, so you guys have fun.
Remy: Mom, you don't have to go.
Felicia: No, no, I've got to go. Look, order some food, okay. You look a little thin.
Clayton: See you back at the house.
Clayton: Your mother is knocking down walls.
Remy: That doesn't sound good.
Clayton: So what's going on?
Remy: Okay. Look, I wouldn't be asking this if it wasn't important. And I swear it's not much, but I'm wondering if you can loan me some money so I can help Christina get her day care business started. Now, I will pay you back with interest. And it may not be soon, but Dad, you can count on me.
Clayton: I don't know if I can help you.
Remy: Thanks for hearing me out, Dad.
Clayton: Sit down.
Remy: I'm embarrassed.
Clayton: No, I'm embarrassed. Just sit down. I pride myself on being able to take care of my family financially.
Remy: Mel and I are grown up now, Dad.
Clayton: That's true. But even so I want to... I want to give you the money but I can't get to it.
Remy: What do you mean?
Clayton: I found a relatively new investment group. Seemed like a good opportunity, but the past day or so I haven't been able to access my account. Maybe their computers are down. I've been calling them trying to find out where my money is, but my calls haven't been returned.
Remy: Who's in charge of this company, Dad?
Clayton: The company is called Independence Fund International.
Phillip: So what do you know about investing?
James: A lot, actually. I was good at it, too.
Phillip: You need money to invest.
James: It doesn't have to be your own. Look, I needed money so I sort of started up an investment group. You know, it was going great, too, until the market tanked. Then I had to keep raising money to pay back the first people in and then I had to get more to...
Phillip: You're running a ponzi scheme?
James: I think scheme is a little harsh.
Phillip: James, you have no idea what you're doing.
James: I ran into some bad luck, but I don't know what to tell my investors.
Phillip: Who are these people? Who gives this kind of money to a kid?
Phillip: I'm serious. How did you get the money?
James: I used an alias.
Phillip: You used somebody else's name as a front?
James: Not used. Borrowed.
Phillip: Whose name? Whose name?
James: Lizzie's Bill. Bill Lewis.
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Bill: Winning you over is going to be my top goal once I join this family.
Remy: Explain it again. How does it work?
Clayton: An investment group, but it's like they never even heard of me.
Alan: I hope you enjoy every moment you have because it's all going to be over very soon.
Phillip: You better start taking this seriously.
James: I am taking this seriously.
Phillip: You could go to jail. Do you understand that?
James: That's why I'm coming to you now.
