Victoria: So if I could get that report as soon as you're done with it, I need to give it to Dad.
Nick: Speaking of reports --
Miguel: Hello, you two.
Miguel: Hey, if you haven't eaten, Iíd be happy to make something.
Victoria: Yes, please. I'm starving.
Nick: Make that two yeses, and thank you.
Victoria: Oh, hey, Miguel -- has Mom come home by any chance?
Miguel: No, she hasn't gotten home yet.
Victoria: Hmm. That's interesting.
Miguel: I'll get started on dinner.
Victoria: All right. Well, I rest my case.
Nick: Uh-huh. I figured you would.
Victoria: Oh, come on. You're not still doubting Nicholas, are you?
Nick: Hey, I know you're convinced that tonight's the night.
Victoria: Nicholas, if you had seen the amazing evening Dad had planned, not to mention that spectacular ring that just happened to be in his pocket --
Nick: You really think he's gonna propose?
Victoria: I'm telling you something, little brother. I know tonight is the night.
Nikki: This has been an incredible evening.
Victor: You're talking as if you think it's over.
Nikki: I hope not.
Victor: What's your pleasure?
Nikki: Just being here with you like this. It's wonderful.
Victor: "Like this," meaning what?
Nikki: More open, honest, no games. I just really feel like I can be myself with you.
Victor: You didn't feel that before?
Nikki: Well, for many of our years together, I was trying to mold myself into the woman I thought you wanted me to be. If I'd concentrated more on the woman I wanted to be, I would have been a lot happier.
Victor: But you weren't sure if I would accept that.
Nikki: Well, no. At that time, I don't think you could have.
Nikki: My timer. I'll be right back.
J.T.: What is it, Mac? You want me to stop?
Mackenzie: J.T., someone's there.
Mackenzie: I saw something move. Someone's up there.
J.T.: I don't see anything, Mac.
Mackenzie: What, you think I'm making this up?
J.T.: Mac, calm down. I didn't say that. Hello, anybody up there?
Mackenzie: He's not gonna answer you!
J.T.: Why'd you say that, Mac? You think somebody's been spying on us? All right. Wait here. I'll find out.
Danielle: Come on. Come down here with me. Come on. What's the story? You don't want to now? I'm throwing myself at you! What, you don't think I'm pretty enough? You're not turned on by me? What is it, Billy? What is it with you?
Larry: Wait, wait. You going out of your way to help me? Look, I may be stupid, but that stupid, I ain't.
Jill: You arenít.
Larry: Yeah, we'll I'm glad you agree with me. Okay? 'Cause you don't like Mandy. You don't like me. So how're you gonna help me with her? And why would you even want to? Unless it's a way to stick it to me. Yeah, yeah, screw up things even more than they already are.
Jill: Look, I understand why you would think that way, but if you would use your head, you'd see that there's something in this for me, too.
Larry: Oh, yeah? Like what?
Jill: Like Sean.
Larry: Sean? What does he have to do with any of this?
Jill: For whatever reason, and God knows, I can't figure it out, he has decided that you are a person worth knowing, okay? So my attitude creates friction.
Larry: Get out. I'm causing problems between you and your boy toy?
Jill: Yes. You have become a thorn in my side. Because not only does Sean want me to be nice to you, he wants for all of us to socialize. And to put it into your vernacular, that ain't gonna happen.
Larry: Oh, so that kinda puts you into a little sticky situation, huh?
Jill: So I've been trying to find a way to get Sean off my case without having to befriend you on any meaningful level.
Larry: Okay, say I was to buy into what you're telling me. What kind of help are we talking?
Jill: That's right. Just call it the benefit of my experience. And please, don't forget I taught you how to navigate a formal table setting.
Larry: Stop, stop. Whoa, whoa, right there, okay? Look, I don't know what this has to do with me and Amanda. Hell, she didn't even know what fork to use. So any kind of junk like that is not gonna cut the ice with her.
Jill: Look, I'm not just talking about manners here, okay? Social graces exist for a reason. They facilitate communication between people. Especially people of the opposite sex. So if I were to give you a tutorial in this area --
Larry: Whoa, whoa. A what?
Jill: A lesson. A lesson. You'd be able to read Amandaís moods more quickly and pick up on the little signals that she's giving off. And then you could respond in a more sensitive manner.
Larry: Impress her, you mean?
Jill: Well, isn't that what you're struggling to do here?
Larry: Yeah, but I -- I doubt it's gonna work, okay? Because I am who I am.
Jill: You're not even gonna give it a shot?
Larry: Look, I don't know what angle you've working on, but I'm sure that you have one.
Jill: So you're turning my offer down?
Larry: Yeah, that's right.
Jill: Fine. It's no skin off my back.
Amanda: Is everything all right in here?
Raul: Easy come, easy go.
Brittany: So you didn't get in?
Raul: Yeah, so, who cares? You know, we knew that going in. There was no way I was getting into Boston. Didn't even try to write a good essay, which was totally my own choice. Oh, what, Brittany? I know you think Iím dying inside right now.
Brittany: You're not?
Raul: Nobody likes to get rejected. But if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. Not one thing.
Larry: So hey, Mandy. Is the crisis over in the kitchen?
Amanda: Oh, just the cookies that we were gonna have for dessert got a little overdone.
Jill: That means Esther burned them. She's such a klutz. Okay, so is it safe to go in there, or should I call the fire department?
Amanda: Everything's fine now, Jill.
Jill: I'll bet.
Amanda: Well, looks like I walked in on something.
Larry: No, not -- not really. So, how are you?
Amanda: I'm okay.
Larry: Well, kind of a fun night.
Amanda: "Fun"? Yeah, real fun. Would have been a lot more fun if my daughter hadn't walked out on us, but --
Larry: Yeah, that's -- that is a big bummer. I'm sorry. But you and I, we both know that love can sting sometimes. But, Mac, she'll be okay. I mean, she'll snap out of it. She's -- she's young.
Amanda: Larry, young or not, she's still hurting.
Larry: Right, I know. Look, I didn't mean it that --
Katherine: Oh, God. Burned cookies and Jill in one day. I can't handle it.
Larry: That lady sure can clear a room, can't she?
Katherine: Yes. Um, Larry, do you know about Amandaís secret?
Amanda: What secret?
Katherine: Well, I -- I understand you used to be an actress.
Amanda: Oh, Lord. That's overstating it. But, yeah.
Larry: That's cool. So you used to be in, like, plays and stuff?
Amanda: Yeah, well, high school plays. You know? It was no big deal. It was fun, though. It was a lot of fun.
Larry: So that's why you wanted Mac to get into the play at school.
Larry: I don't understand. What's wrong?
Amanda: Nothing, nothing. But it just reminds me that if I would have kept my mouth shut, she wouldn't have signed up, and she wouldn't be having to spend all this time around Billy right now.
Katherine: Oh, come on, Amanda. Now, don't be so down on yourself, for heaven sakes. At the time, Billy and Mackenzie were very close. If they hadn't decided to do the play together, my dear, it is certain they would have been involved in some other project.
Jill: Oh, please don't let me interrupt what Iím sure must be sparkling conversation.
Billy: Look, Danielle, it's not you.
Danielle: Then who else is it?
Billy: It's me.
Danielle: Oh, please. You don't have to lie to me. Don't try to be nice to me, all right? I don't need your pity.
Billy: No, you're right. It's this place. I've been here before.
Billy: So I keep getting all these memories and thoughts in my head and --
Danielle: Oh, fantastic. You're thinking about you and Brittany, and what? I don't measure up?
Billy: I wasn't ever here with Brittany.
Danielle: Then who are you -- Mac?
Billy: This was our place.
Danielle: Wait a minute. What do you mean, "your place"? You guys didn't ever --
Billy: It's just -- it's all these memories coming back to me, and I -- I can't get them out of my brain.
Danielle: Oh, great. We're going to have the ex-girlfriend talk now? And about a girl you never did anything with?
Billy: You know, in some ways, Mac and I were very close.
Danielle: Not in the ways you wanted.
Billy: That's it. A relationship is supposed to grow. You know, I mean, when you're with somebody for so long, and you're supposedly in love with that person -- but she didn't trust me. And if you don't have trust, what do you have? Still, my God -- I had the most incredible feeling when I was with her. I've never felt anything like that with anybody, no matter how physical it got. You know, it was like we were -- we were connected. And sometimes when I held her, I -- I didn't know where she left off and I began. You know, I just thought that if Mac and I just -- we'd tried, you know. All her doubts and her fears --
Danielle: All right, Billy. I get the picture. You thought you were living the dream, but then you realized Mac didn't trust you, and you broke up. Now I'm here with you, and I just have one question for you. Just one. Is anything gonna happen between us tonight? Because, frankly, I'm tired of talking about you and Mac.
J.T.: Hello? Anybody up here?
Mackenzie: J.T.? J.T., are you okay? J.T., is that you? J.T.?
J.T.: Yeah, it's me. I'm fine.
Mackenzie: What happened? Why were you yelling like that?
J.T.: My ankle. I banged it stumbling around up there. It's not a lot of light.
Mackenzie: But you could see enough to tell?
J.T.: There's nobody up there, Mac. Why'd you freak out like that?
Mackenzie: Well, there's been a few times lately where Iíve had this feeling that there was someone creeping around here, watching me.
J.T.: You know, I think your mind's playing tricks on you. That's settled, all right? We're alone. Now, where were we? I got an idea. This place gets to you. Why don't we go back to my place? There's a back entrance to my rec room. My parents never go down there. We'll be totally alone. All right? Come on, Mac. Let's go.
Jill: Want some more horseradish, darling?
Sean: No, thanks. Awesome sandwich. Although it took you long enough to make it.
Jill: I know what you want to know. You want to know whether I had an altercation with Katherine and her motley crew of diners downstairs.
Sean: Did you?
Jill: No, Sean, I did not. No murder, no mayhem.
Sean: Then why that little "cat who ate the canary" look?
Jill: What? Moi?
Sean: I get it. You're smiling because you've launched your campaign to uncover the conspiracy between Larry and Katherine.
Jill: How astute you are, my darling.
Sean: What's your M.O.? Or is that classified?
Victoria: Mm. I'm stuffed. Do you want the rest of my cheesecake?
Nick: No, Iím good.
Victoria: Well, I hope this thing with Sharon isn't affecting your appetite.
Nick: Look, this thing with Sharon, it's off the table.
Nick: Hey, Diego.
Nick: Come in.
Diego: Thanks. I brought this by for your mom. It's a report from the vet.
Nick: Oh, about Blue Smoke?
Diego: Yeah. She's still a little off her feed.
Nick: Little off her feed. See, it isn't just me. I'll give this to her when she gets in in the morning.
Diego: Oh, she's not here?
Victoria: Wow, you certainly are dedicated, working so late.
Diego: Well, I saw the lights on. I didn't think anybody would mind since it's about one of your horses. That is my job, right?
Victoria: Yeah, right.
Diego: What is it, Victoria? Do you think Iím here for another reason?
Victoria: I don't know. Are you?
Diego: Your mother asked me to bring this report to her as soon as possible. So if I've broken the rules by coming up here after a certain time, all you have to do is let me know where the lines are drawn and I'll do my best not to cross them again.
Victoria: You know, Diego, you're really lucky I'm in such a good mood, because Iím going to ignore your rather insolent tone. And as for lines being crossed, you just crossed another one. Have a good evening. Good night.
Nick: Good night.
Diego: Was I being insolent?
Nick: You want a beer?
Diego: I would love about 12 of them, yes.
Nick: I think we got exactly that number. Let's go.
Diego: Thank you.
Nikki: This has been a magical evening.
Victor: For me, too, you know? What? What's funny?
Nikki: I'm just thinking about Victoria. She's so worked up about the two of us.
Victor: She certainly is. Well, you know what she wants?
Nikki: Yes, and that's going to be our decision to make. But you would not believe how far she's willing to go to make something happen.
Victor: What? What do you mean?
Nikki: She actually suggested that I go work for Brash & Sassy.
Victor: Why would she suggest that?
Nikki: She thinks then there wouldn't be any more friction between the two us about my job. A very sweet idea, but totally unworkable.
Brittany: Raul, Boston isn't a slam-dunk for anyone.
Brittany: Besides, you applied to some other schools. You've got back-up colleges. It'll all work out.
Raul: Of course it'll work out. I'm 18 years old. It's a great big world out there, Brittany. There's a lot of other things people can do without a degree.
Brittany: Absolutely. What exactly are you talking about? For you, I mean.
Raul: I don't know. Take the work I've been doing backstage. I found out that not only am I good with my hands, I like it. Carpentry is a good career. And you can actually see what you're doing with your life. You know, you can hold something in your hands that you've made or -- or look at a house that you've built. That's just one example. There's a lot of other stuff out there like that.
Brittany: Sure, I guess. If that's what you want.
Raul: That's not what I want? Is that what you're saying?
Brittany: Face it, Raul. You like school. You may work well with your hands, but you like to work with your mind. It gets your juices flowing.
Raul: Damn. Brittany, you can be such a snob sometimes.
Brittany: Excuse me?
Raul: You pay lip service to people who have blue-collar jobs, but what you really think is if you're not in a suit, you're nothing. Like people who work with their hands, like they can't use their brains. That's stupid. I disagree with you.
Brittany: Geez. Calm down! What's with all this hostility?
Raul: You don't get it, do you? You and I, we're from totally different worlds. My dad's a factory worker, all right? My brother -- practically a drifter.
Brittany: Yeah, so what? This is about you, Raul, not them.
Raul: That's where you're wrong. This has never been about me. This has always been about other people and what they want, what they thought I should be. This whole thing that happened to me last year, almost dying -- I finally figured out what I want. And I'm glad, you know. I'm real glad. Because for the first time in my life, I opened my eyes.
Victor: In other words, you feel that there's no potential in Victoriaís idea?
Nikki: No, how could there be?
Victor: Why? Because Brash & Sassy's dealing with products that you aren't working with or what?
Nikki: Well, yes, that, and just the idea of working at Newman in general.
Victor: You mean working with our daughter.
Nikki: Well, that's part of it. Victor, don't look like that. You know what would happen. Every bit of my freedom and independence would go out the window. You know that's true.
Victor: And that independence is very important to you, isn't it?
Nikki: It's something that Iíve discovered about myself. And I think that that's why things didn't work between us before, because my entire existence was dependent on you.
Are you saying that every time you and I get close, you're afraid to lose your identity?
Nikki: I love being close with you.
Nikki: I don't think I have ever been as happy. And I really believe it's because, this time, we've come together as equals. Victor, don't be upset. I -- I don't want to upset you. I'm sorry. And I want this evening to end on a very positive note. If words won't do it, I guess Iíll be forced to do something else.
Victor: Are you seducing me?
Victor: Hmm? Are you seducing me? Hmm?
Nikki: Stop talking and take me upstairs.
Victor: Oh, my goodness. Oh, my goodness. I think she's seducing me.
Danielle: Billy -- okay. I guess that answers my question. This is great, Billy. Just great.
Billy: Look, Danielle, I'm really sorry.
Danielle: I'll say.
Billy: I didn't mean for this to happen. I thought I could --
Danielle: You thought you could what? Bring yourself to touch me?
Billy: I don't know what to say. Maybe it's just a little too soon.
Danielle: Whatever. I'm obviously not your type. What am I beating myself up for? I'm not the one who's being humiliated here. Looking at you, I'm thinking maybe the girl's smarter than I gave her credit for.
Larry: Are you sure you want to stay for dessert?
Larry: I was just -- never mind. I wonder what's keeping Mrs. Chancellor. You know, that was really cool before -- hearing you talk about yourself and all the things that you liked to do when you were a kid.
Amanda: Yeah, that was a long time ago, Larry.
Larry: Yeah, but it's good to go back and remember things. Except in my case, when I spent time in prison. Look, does it bother you, me talking about jail?
Amanda: Um -- I'm sorry. I guess I wasn't paying attention.
Larry: Yeah. Yeah, I could tell. Look, you don't seem like you want to talk too much to me.
Amanda: Larry, I just have a lot on my mind right now, okay?
Larry: Okay, I understand. You're upset. But is it something that I did or said --
Amanda: No. No, it's not you, okay? It -- will you excuse me?
Larry: Oh, okay. You're walking out on me?
Amanda: I'm going in the kitchen to see if Katherine and Esther need any help.
Sean: Wait a minute. You told me that you were looking for a way to manipulate Larry and now you expect me to believe that you actually want to help him.
Jill: The man smells a rat.
Sean: A little one.
Jill: It's very simple, baby. If Iím wrong, okay, and Katherine and company are pure as the driven snow, well, then, what's the harm? I mean, I can dig as deep as I want and there'd be no plot to uncover at all. And meanwhile, that wonderful human being with all the jailhouse tattoos will have been given a few effective lessons in how to sweep the lovely homeless lady off her feet.
Sean: You know what, Jill? For once, you actually make sense.
Jill: Then you're not gonna fight me on this anymore?
Sean: Not if you're on the level.
Jill: Well, good.
Sean: Larry agreed to all of this?
Jill: Oh, no, no, no. Larry turned me down flat.
Sean: So what's the point in telling me?
[Knock on door]
Jill: Right on cue. Come to Mama, little fishy fishy fishy. What, you again? What are you doing here?
Larry: Listen, I -- hey, Sean.
Larry: Look, I was wondering if your offer's still good -- you teaching me how to behave better around Amanda.
Jill: I don't know if Iím still interested. I mean, your initial reaction was less than thrilling.
Larry: Come on, lady! Just give me an answer -- yes or no?
Jill: The answer is yes, Mr. Warton. And I'll give you your first lesson right now. Don't come knocking on bedroom doors. And don't ever raise your voice in the presence of a lady again. Now, class starts in the morning, my office. Be there.
Jill: Bad girl. Bad, bad, bad girl.
Brittany: You think Iím passing judgment, but you're passing judgment on me, Raul -- calling me a snob? I'm not trying to put anybody down. That was one rejection letter from one college. You've got four others, right?
Brittany: So before you go out and buy a hammer and nails, don't you think you should find out what your other options are?
Raul: I guess.
Brittany: Thank you.
Raul: So, what about that concert?
Brittany: I don't know. It's gotten pretty late. We do have school tomorrow.
Raul: Come on. Since when has that ever stopped you from having fun? I really want to go.
Brittany: Well, before you didn't care, and now you're pushing to go to this stupid concert. Why is this so -- oh, I get it.
Raul: You think you know? Say it.
Brittany: Well, you don't want to get home until your mom's asleep so you don't have to tell her what that letter said. Well, if we're going, let's go.
Diego: So what the hell am I doing wrong, besides not getting out of her way fast enough?
Nick: Oh, with my sister? Yeah, that's half the battle.
Nick: See, the thing is nobody's actually sure how you get on her list, but once you do, it's pretty much over for you. Look, don't worry about it. Just keep doing your thing. She'll come around.
Diego: It'd be nice if someone would.
Nick: Are we still talking about Vic?
Diego: Talkin' about my kid brother.
Nick: What's up with Raul?
Diego: See, the thing is -- I stuck around because I thought he needed me. But he's been blowing off work, messing up with school like he doesn't even care anymore.
Nick: How come?
Diego: Who knows? I just want to shake him sometimes, you know?
Nick: I hear that.
Diego: So anyway, I thought I might be able to help him -- give him a kick in the butt or something.
Nick: Did it work?
Diego: I thought it might have, until tonight. See, he got this letter from this college -- this catholic school, you know, a lot of prestige -- it's been my mother's dream for him, since he was in diapers. But for some reason, he wouldn't open the letter in front of me. I'm pretty sure it was bad news.
Nick: Look, all I can tell you is your brother's a good kid. He seems bright. You gotta trust that he's gonna straighten himself out.
Diego: Yeah, maybe.
Katherine: Well, we seem to be minus a dinner guest.
Amanda: Well, Larryís coat is still here.
Katherine: Well, perhaps he just stepped outside for some fresh air.
Amanda: Well, I wouldn't be surprised if he left. I've been such a drag all evening.
Katherine: Oh, come on, now. I'm sure that Larry understands, what with Mackenzie running out the way she did. We were all very upset.
Amanda: Yeah. You know, after she ran out, you -- you said something to me that really threw me.
Katherine: Did I?
Amanda: When I wanted to go after her, you said not to, that she always comes back when she's ready. Well, when I let Mac go, she never came back. You know, when I think about the kind of mother I was, it -- it overwhelms me. Katherine, I failed so miserably.
Katherine: Oh, come on, now, Amanda, for heaven's sake. Look, we all make mistakes. The important thing is that we keep on learning from them and moving on. And from what I see, I think you've done just that.
Amanda: Thank you. Thank you for saying that. And you're right, you know. I mean, Mac and I, we need to just keep looking forward. I mean, maybe we can't totally escape our past, but we can't let it make us prisoners, either.
Mackenzie: J.T., I just --
J.T.: What? Are you changing your mind?
Mackenzie: I feel really weird now.
J.T.: Yeah, I know. But if we go back to my place, it'll be --
Mackenzie: I don't know what I was thinking, okay? This isn't right. I can't do this. Not now. Not --
J.T.: Not now? Not ever. Right, Mac? That's what you really meant to say, isn't it?
Nikki: [Sighs] In my whole life, no other man has reached me like you do.
Victor: You really feel that way?
Nikki: Yes, I do. I think this is our destiny. I've never been happier. I wouldn't change anything.
J.T.: Mac, I don't like being teased. I don't take that from anyone, not even you.
Mackenzie: I wasn't teasing you.
J.T.: So you've got your issues with Billy. That's your problem. I didn't want to get involved, but you dragged me in and then you jerk me around. Talk about selfish, Mac. Especially coming from you. I mean, you're always the one preaching about this to everybody else.
Mackenzie: J.T., wait!
J.T.: Mac, leave it alone, all right?
