Colleen: Yeah, that orange thing's pretty ugly, huh? Mac, are you okay? You're acting awfully quiet.

Mackenzie: How can he know? But if it is him -- if he's the one who's been watching me --

Colleen: Who? What are you talking about?

Raul: Hey, guys.

Colleen: Hi, Brittany. Raul. Mac was just telling me to pick out a costume.

Raul: Mac, what's wrong with you? You look like you've seen a ghost.

Mackenzie: I can't talk now. I have to go.

Brittany: Go where?

Mackenzie: To the shelter. Tell Erica Iím not sure when Iíll be back.

Jack: Hey, I didn't expect to see you here.

Phyllis: Yeah, I needed some private time. Too many interruptions at Newman. How was your visit with Kyle?

Jack: Great.

Phyllis: Good. How long was he there after I left?

Jack: Not long. And after I left the house, I stopped on my way here.

Phyllis: Where?

Jack: See for yourself.

Victor: Well, hello, hello.

Gina: Victor. It's so good to see you.

Victor: Nice to see you.

Gina: Let me take you to a table.

Victor: That's not necessary. I prefer not to eat anything. Let me just sit at the bar for awhile.

Gina: Oh, sure. Right this way.

Victor: Thank you.

Gina: And why don't I fix you a drink?

Victor: That's very nice. How 'bout a cup of coffee? I'm just here on a little break.

Gina: You need a break from the corporate wars, huh?

Victor: [Laughs] Something like that. So how've you been?

Gina: Very good.

Victor: All right.

Gina: You let me know if you need anything at all.

Victor: I will do that.

Diane: Hello, Victor.

Victor: You again?

Diane: I know what you're thinking.

Victor: I doubt it.

Diane: You're wondering what Iím still doing in town. Well, believe me, it isn't by choice.

Victor: Really?

Diane: Really. It's a rather involved story, actually. One in which you've played a role.

Victor: I can hardly wait. I'm not particularly interested in hearing it.

Diane: Oh, but you should be. It's about my child. The one I thought was yours. I've discovered who the father is.

Victor: And who might that poor man be?

Diane: Fasten your seat belt. It's Jack. Jack Abbott.

Ashley: Brad?

Brad: Yeah?

Ashley: Hi.

Brad: Hi.

Ashley: Working hard?

Brad: Hardly working is more like it. Actually, I was just gonna come down to the lab and get you.

Ashley: Why? Is there a meeting?

Brad: No. No meeting. I just worry about you. Make sure you're not overdoing it.

Ashley: Honey, I'm fine.

Brad: You sure?

Ashley: Yeah, I just wanted to finish up some experiments in case I don't feel like coming in, you know?

Brad: Yeah. After the radiation tomorrow.

Ashley: Yeah, it's just a precaution. They said I might get a little tired.

Brad: Which means you rest.

Ashley: Yeah. Things could be worse, right?

Brad: Yeah. They could be. You'll go home, spend some time there, hang out with Abby. Watch a DVD, catch up on a bestseller. No pressures, no worries.

Ashley: Okay, okay. I'll take it easy, I promise.

Brad: You know, after you finish the radiation treatments, maybe you should just take a nice, big chunk of time off. How 'bout that?

Ashley: You know, sweetie, I really need to just go on with my life. I mean, the whole idea, so that this doesn't become an 800-pound gorilla. I had noninvasive breast cancer. I'm gonna have a little radiation. I mean, there's a whole lot of people out there a whole lot worse off.

Brad: Okay, superwoman. Just know I'm gonna be keeping my eye on you.

Ashley: Hey, better you keep your eye on me than on some secretary.

Brad: Hey, what -- come on. I never even sneak a peek.

Ashley: You know about that family dinner we're having tonight?

Brad: Yeah? Problems?

Ashley: No, Iím just a little concerned about Colleen. Maybe we should take her aside and tell her alone, before dinner.

Brad: Any special reason?

Ashley: I just want to break the news more gently to her. And basically, I know that the news is good, but I'm a little worried about the impact it might have on her.

Michael: Thanks.

Lauren: Michael. Hi. Why don't you join me?

Michael: Martini, vodka, olives, straight 30. Thank you. Well, this is the best offer Iíve had all day. Though I do have to ask you a question.

Lauren: What's that?

Michael: Why are you being friendly to me all of a sudden?

Lauren: I'm always friendly. And I want to talk to you.

Michael: Oh, so it wasn't my devastating charm.

Lauren: I'm aware of a certain party who went to Australia to visit --

Michael: Mary Williams.

Lauren: Then you know?

Michael: Yeah.

Lauren: From who? From Mary?

Michael: I'll never tell.

Lauren: Oh, Christine. I assume you talked.

Michael: Why do you ask?

Lauren: Did Mary spill the beans?

Michael: I beg your pardon?

Lauren: About Paul and Isabella having a baby. I'm assuming that's why she went all that way, to enlist Chrisís help.

Michael: Maybe.

Lauren: Oh, Michael. You can talk to me. It's no secret that Mary hates Isabella, even though she's carrying her soon-to-be-grandchild.

Michael: You could be right.

Lauren: Don't play dumb with me. Mary's been trying to break up those two for months.

Michael: Is this supposed to be news to me, Lauren?

Lauren: Then Mary did approach you.

Michael: And you, too, I'm sure.

Lauren: So was her little trip to Australia -- I mean, did that surprise you?

Michael: No, I don't think so, given the old hag has used up all her potential help in Genoa City.

Lauren: So tell me, what was Christineís reaction to Maryís little trip? Or is that confidential information?

Amanda: Hey, guys. Have any of you seen Mac?

Raul: You just missed her.

Amanda: Oh, did she say where she was going?

Brittany: To the shelter.

Amanda: To look for me?

Colleen: I don't know.

Raul: She seemed kind of spaced out.

Amanda: Oh, dear.

Raul: Yeah, she's pretty upset.

Amanda: Okay, thanks. I'm gonna try to catch up with her.

Brittany: Well, I hope you don't go running after Mac, too.

Raul: No, I think her mom can handle it.

Colleen: Mac was acting pretty weird.

Raul: Did she mention what was bothering her?

Colleen: No. It could have something to do with college.

Raul: What do you mean?

Colleen: Well, Billy found out yesterday that he got accepted to a couple of schools. Maybe she's ticked 'cause she didn't get in to where she hoped to.

Brittany: Don't you have to go pick out a costume? I'm sure Erica could help you with that.

Colleen: Yeah, sure. Thanks.

Raul: What was that all about?

Brittany: What?

Raul: You -- rushing Colleen out of here so fast.

Brittany: Well, I was trying to do you a favor. I'm sure college isn't a subject that you care to dwell on, if you know what I mean.

Raul: I appreciate the thought, Brittany, but it's not like I can't talk about it. Which reminds me, you never answered my question from the other day.

Brittany: What question?

Raul: I asked you if you got any replies from colleges.

Brittany: Yeah, I said I had a stack of mail that I haven't gone through yet.

Raul: You must have gone through it by now.

Brittany: I got some acceptance letters.

Raul: Some?

Brittany: Three. Look, do we really have to talk about this right now?

Raul: Yes, we do.

Brittany: Come on, Raul.

Raul: You knew the other day, didn't you? You just didn't want to mention it to me, because you were afraid of how I would react.

Brad: So you're concerned the news is going to have a special impact on Colleen.

Ashley: It's a pretty intense subject for a kid.

Brad: Yeah. No doubt. But you know, I think she can handle it.

Ashley: Well, what I'm feeling is that because she's a girl on the verge of becoming a young woman, that when she learns that I have breast cancer --

Brad: Yeah. It's going to really hit home for her.

Ashley: Well, yeah. It's a woman's worst nightmare. And I'm worried about how's she's gonna react when she finds out what I'm going through.

Brad: Yeah. Well, maybe hearing the news in a group setting, where everyone's gonna be very positive and supportive, that'll be better for her than hearing it one-on-one. And no matter what, it's going to be frightening.

Ashley: Well, okay, but let's keep our eye on her, okay? Make sure that she knows what the statistics are and how long it will be before she has to give this any real thought in regard to herself. What?

Brad: You're really something, you know that? At a time when you should just be concerned about yourself, here you are, worrying about others. Sometimes I don't even think that Iím worthy of you.

Ashley: Oh, stop it. Don't put me on a pedestal.

Brad: I just think you're an amazing woman, Mrs. Carlton. Is that okay?

Ashley: Thank you very much. Let's hope I never disappoint you.

Brad: You never would. Something wrong?

Ashley: Everything's right. I love being this way with you. It wasn't that long ago that I wondered if we'd ever be this close again.

Brad: Oh, no, no, no. That was just a bump in the road. Hey, remember your new appreciation for life.

Ashley: Yeah?

Brad: Yeah. Well, here we are together, right now, in this moment. Can we just appreciate it to the fullest?

Ashley: I can definitely do that.

[Mackenzie remembering]

Mackenzie: Where's Mom?

Ralph: She went out. Don't be in such a hurry, Mac. Stay. I want to talk. We never have a chance to talk.

Ned: Hey, Mackenzie, what's up?

Mackenzie: Hey, you got a few minutes?

Ned: Sure. What's on your mind?

Mackenzie: It's about my stepdad.

Ned: Yeah, your mom told me about him. She was worried he could show up here in Genoa City.

Mackenzie: And you told her there's absolutely no way he'd be able to find us, right?

Ned: You haven't heard from the guy, have you?

Mackenzie: Not exactly.

Ned: Well, do you think he might have tracked you down?

Mackenzie: Just answer me, Ned. Are you sure that there's no way he could find out where I am?

Ned: I'll tell you what I told Amanda. Nothing went out from this place that would have alerted Ralph Hunnicutt to your whereabouts.

Mackenzie: Weren't there some flyers he sent?

Ned: Yeah, but he mailed those out to hundreds of places. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Besides, even if he did come to town, there's no way anybody here would give out any information.

Mackenzie: But if he happened to see me or my mom --

Ned: Mackenzie, listen to me. I know that his showing up in Genoa City is a frightening thought for you. But I promise you, you're protected here. Nobody at the shelter would say anything. Besides, you've got a family. A very powerful family that's behind you. And a lot of friends, me included. You have nothing to fear from this man.

Mackenzie: I wish I could believe that.

Ned: Whatever it is that's got you so upset right now, if you can't talk to me, talk to your mother or your grandmother. Let them know.

Mackenzie: No. I'm not gonna say anything to them, and you can't either.

Ned: Why not?

Mackenzie: Because I don't know anything for sure. It's only a suspicion. They'd both freak out.

Ned: They're your family, Mac. You've got to tell them.

Mackenzie: Not until I know more.

Ned: You don't have to carry this burden all alone. That's what families are for.

Diane: So you see? Jack has forced me to stay in town until the custody hearing is over. He's gone so far as to get a court order to prevent me from leaving the country.

Victor: That's a hell of a story.

Diane: I wasn't exaggerating when I said my being here wasn't by choice.

Victor: Well, you've certainly explained why you're here.

Diane: That's all you're going to say?

Victor: Diane, what the hell do you expect me to say?

Diane: Nothing, I suppose. But the fact that Jack is even lower on the totem pole than I am in your eyes, I guess I was hoping --

Victor: What were you hoping?

Diane: That you would view me as the lesser of two evils. And wish me luck in keeping my son.

Victor: Good luck.

Diane: Surely you can find some way to empathize. You're a father. What if someone were trying to take one of your children away from you?

Victor: I wouldn't live long enough to see it.

Diane: Oh, right, of course not, because no one would dare do that to the great Victor Newman.

Victor: It is quite obvious that you have only yourself to thank for the predicament you're in.

Diane: Whatever.

Victor: Right.

Diane: Whatever. At least now you know I wasn't going against your wishes by sticking around. I am being kept here against my will while Jack tries to rob me of my one true happiness in life. You know, Victor, I'm sure that when you look back on our relationship, you blame me for everything. But that is a gross oversimplification.

Victor: Why are we talking about all this?

Diane: Because I hate always being the villain. Yes, I was partly to blame for the ugliness of our divorce, and there's no question that I was foolish enough to try to bring you back by having a child that you didn't want. But if you look back before then, you will see a man who married me, who claimed he loved me, who wanted the divorce just to give peace to a dying woman and then stabbed me in the back by refusing to keep his promise. You know, I'm sure you're wondering why I'm bringing up the past. What right do I have?

Victor: You bore me. You're bringing up ancient history. Why the hell would I be interested in that? You're worried about losing a child to Jack Abbott. Why are you directing your anger at me, not at him?

Phyllis: What's all this?

Jack: Good girls deserve presents.

Phyllis: We're going to these places?

Jack: A romantic, weekend getaway. Just the two of us. You pick the place.

Phyllis: What's the occasion?

Jack: I know how hard you have worked not to be negative about this whole custody thing. I've seen the efforts you've made to understand how I feel about Kyle, and I just want to show my appreciation.

Phyllis: You didn't have to do this, Jack.

Jack: You trusted me. That meant the world to me. And I wanted to do something special to show you how much I love and appreciate you.

Phyllis: You're very sweet.

Jack: Well, that is why you married me, isn't it? Okay, so here are the choices. We have a local bed and breakfast, a luxurious Chicago hotel or a cozy country cottage, just the two of us. You pick.

Phyllis: Okay. Wow. I can't choose. They're all so romantic and fun.

Jack: Now, you have to pick one. It's your choice.

Phyllis: One? Okay. Umm -- the country cottage.

Jack: The country cottage it is.

Phyllis: Let's call now. Let's make a reservation right now, please?

Jack: Well, we can talk about dates now. I don't want to make a reservation until we've had a chance to talk to John Silva, make sure it's not in conflict with any of our hearings. So -- I also want to talk to Diane.

Phyllis: Excuse me? You want to run our plans by Diane?

Jack: That's right, I just want to run them by her. I am working on temporary visitation right now. I can't exactly, after all this work, say "sorry, I don't have time to visit with my son," right? Honey, please. We will fit this in, I guarantee.

Ashley: Thanks a lot, Dad. Okay, I'll see you tonight.

Brad: You're going to head back down to the lab?

Ashley: Not directly. I need to find Jack. Find out why I haven't heard back from him about tonight.

Brad: Okay, well, tell you what. I'll go with you. But first, I want you to promise me something.

Ashley: Well, I already promised you I was gonna take it easy.

Brad: I know you did, and I appreciate it. I just hope you keep that promise.

Ashley: Why wouldn't I?

Brad: Honey, your brother is going through something pretty intense right now. And the two of you have a tendency to get very involved in each other's lives --

Ashley: He's my brother, and --

Brad: I know he's your brother. I know. But he's a big boy and he can take care of himself while you're taking care of yourself.

Ashley: I can't promise 100% --

Brad: There is nothing more important than your health.

Ashley: Honey, you have my word. I'm gonna do everything that I have to do to get every single benefit out of each and every one of my treatments so that we can put this frightening episode behind us and get on with our wonderful lives together. I swear.

Brad: Swear?

Ashley: I swear.

Brad: Okay.

Michael: Thank you.

Lauren: So Christine must have been stunned when Mary showed up out of the blue, dropping that little bomb.

Michael: Don't tell me you're concerned about the pain that might have caused Christine. Or are you wondering if the news will motivate Christine to come back to Genoa City?

Lauren: Well, I don't think the news that Paulís gonna be a father would do that.

Michael: Why ask? Am I the only person who really knows what this situation is about?

Lauren: Which is?

Michael: Look, it is clear that Paul has moved on with his life. I think it's high time that Chris moved on with hers, too.

Lauren: Maybe she's afraid to come home.

Michael: Oh, please. I assure you, Lauren, if Christine were to come back, she would be absolutely fine.

Lauren: So you don't think there'd be any repercussions?

Michael: Oh, what, you think her return will interfere with Paul and Isabellaís idyllic romance? Not that that house of cards needs any more than a gentle wind to blow it down.

Lauren: Very cold, Michael.

Michael: Who cares? Who cares? You know, Paul and Isabella may seem happy now, but they're gonna crash and burn soon enough. They'll get what they so richly deserve, with or without Christineís help. By the way, why are you so curious about all this, huh? You worried that your old flame is still carrying a torch for his latest ex-wife? Is that why you're asking all these questions?

Paul: Isabella, you know, I thought we agreed that we weren't going to discuss marriage.

Isabella: I know.

Paul: For you to throw this at me now at a time like this really is --

Isabella: Look, Iím just -- I'm not saying we're gonna run out and get a preacher. But now that you're free, is it such an outrageous idea? You act like marriage is the furthest thing from your mind.

Paul: I never said that.

Isabella: What -- I thought we were getting closer.

Paul: We are. But you're missing the point.

Isabella: Am I misreading you? Or are you leading me on?

Paul: I am not.

Isabella: 'Cause as you recall, I told you that if you didn't think things were gonna work out between us, tell me straight out. But you didn't do that. Instead, you said all these sweet, kind, romantic things.

Paul: Right, and I also told you I meant every word of that.

Isabella: Then why would you get so upset when I mention marriage? I don't get it.

Paul: You know, the ink isn't even dry on my divorce decree. I think your timing stinks.

Isabella: Your marriage to Christine was over a long time ago. At least that's what you told me. And something else -- my desire to get married goes beyond my own feelings and yours. The way I see it, if we're husband and wife, when the baby is born, our child will be legitimate. He or she will avoid a lot of stigma. So call me old-fashioned, but I think that's important. Now, you once told me you regretted not being able to give your daughter, Heather, a family. Well, here's your chance not to make the same mistake again. So if you agree with anything I have said, don't you think that we should at least consider marriage?

Diane: Of course I'm angry with Jack. He's trying to take my child away from me, for God's sake.

Victor: What's the point of dredging up all this past history?

Diane: Maybe because I haven't made peace with it yet. And I was hoping that you could understand where Iím coming from, because you meant such a great deal to me at one point.

Victor: Why would this affect me in any way?

Diane: It doesn't. I just wanted you to know that Iím a different person. Motherhood has changed me. It's straightened out my priorities.

Victor: Oh, you're warming the cockles of my heart. And you're hoping that the judge will see it that way?

Diane: I'm sure Jack and his lawyer will make every effort to paint me as some horrible, scheming woman.

Victor: That would be terrible.

Diane: Well, trust me, I am not the only one involved with skeletons in the closet.

Victor: I bet you and your attorney are gathering up all the skeletons you can and bring them to light.

Diane: For the sake of my son, you'd better believe it. I will stop at nothing.

Victor: Diane Jenkins, knowing you, I expect no less. Buy yourself another cup of tea.

Jack: Oh, I think you made a great choice. I think this country cottage is gonna be perfect.

[Knock on door]

Ashley: Hi.

Jack: Well, if it isn't the Carltons.

Ashley: Yeah, we just wanted to confirm you two are coming tonight, right?

Jack: Tonight?

Ashley: Yeah.

Brad: Dinner, our house?

Jack: This is news to me. Phyllis, you know about this?

Phyllis: No.

Ashley: I left a message on your voice mail, Jack.

Jack: Yeah, Iím sorry. I've been out of this office most of the day. I haven't checked since I got back.

Brad: But you are coming, right?

Jack: Sure. Phyllis?

Phyllis: Yeah, it's fine.

Ashley: All right. Dad and Mamie are coming.

Brad: And Billy and Colleen.

Jack: Well, this is awfully ambitious in the middle of the week.

Ashley: Oh, not really. I'm just gonna order from Ginaís. No big deal.

Jack: So what's the occasion?

Brad: We just have a lot to catch up on.

Ashley: Yeah.

Brad: I'm curious to hear more about this custody case. Really going forward, is it?

Jack: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. I had my first day of visitation with Kyle. I can't wait for you guys to meet him.

Phyllis: You know I've had enough for today. Listen, Ashley, do you want me to stop by Ginaís and --?

Ashley: Oh, that's nice. That's okay. Don't bother.

Phyllis: Oh, it's not a bother. I'd like to stretch my legs.

Ashley: Okay, sure.

Phyllis: Great. Then Iíll do that. Bye.

Ashley: Bye.

Jack: Bye, baby.

Ashley: Is it my imagination, or is Phyllis just a little uncomfortable talking about this custody thing?

Brittany: Why would I be afraid of telling you about my acceptance letters?

Raul: You thought I would feel like some poor kid who didn't get any toys for Christmas. Like Iíd come all unglued or something, Brittany.

Brittany: Well, you're not exactly being calm right now.

Raul: Yeah, but it's not about college.

Brittany: Then what?

Raul: It's because you didn't believe me when I said it was no big deal.

Brittany: Well, I was just trying to be sensitive.

Raul: Come on, you don't have to walk on eggshells around me.

Brittany: Oh, come on, Raul. Part of you must be a little bummed.

Raul: Not really.

Brittany: Look, I don't have to tell you that I care more about having fun than school, but that doesn't mean I don't care what college I get into. I have to believe you're the same.

Raul: Yeah, well, you're not me.

Brittany: Well, who said I was, or even that I want to be? Why are you getting so mad at me?

Raul: Because it matters to me that you believe me. Look, Britt, there's a lot of things that Iím not sure about. And I admit that maybe somewhere down the line, Iím gonna have to start worrying about this, but I don't think that's gonna happen.

Brittany: Is that so?

Raul: For one thing, I haven't even gotten all my answers to the applications. I mean, there's got to be a school out there that will take me, if I even want to go.

Brittany: What do you mean if you even want to go?

Raul: I haven't decided yet. Right now, everything else that's going on, look, Iím feeling great. Better than I ever have, in fact, because Iím finally the guy I've always wanted to be.

Brittany: Sounds like you mean that.

Raul: I do mean that. And a big part of the reason is because of you, damn it. So stop questioning me whenever I tell you something, okay?

Brittany: Look, okay, all right. If you say the moon is made out of peanut butter, I'll just nod my head and say, "yes, master."

Raul: Good.

Ned: Amanda. Come in.

Mackenzie: Hi, Mom.

Amanda: Hey. I just missed you at school.

Ned: If you'll excuse me, Iím gonna check on some food deliveries.

Amanda: Okay.

Mackenzie: Yeah, you know, I should go, too. I have stuff to do --

Amanda: Honey, wait a second. I'd like to talk to you.

Mackenzie: What about?

Amanda: Some kids at school said that you seemed upset about something.

Mackenzie: Yeah, it was nothing, Mom, really.

Amanda: Okay, was it Billy?

Mackenzie: No.

Amanda: Honey, please, I want you to tell me what's going on.

Mackenzie: Remember last time we talked, when I told you I felt like I was being watched?

Amanda: Do you still feel that way?

Mackenzie: Afraid so.

Amanda: Well, you thought it might be stress, right?

Mackenzie: Yeah, I did.

Amanda: But you don't anymore. Look, honey, I realize how upsetting this must be, okay? I mean, even if it's some kid playing a prank at school, it's not funny.

Mackenzie: It's scary, Mom.

Amanda: Okay, well, then, let's get the principal at your school to help, okay? I mean, maybe he can help us catch whoever's doing this.

Mackenzie: No, Mother.

Amanda: Well, why not? I mean, I don't see any reason --

Mackenzie: I don't think it's anyone at school. It happened at the coffee house, too.

Amanda: Well, that doesn't mean that it's not some student. I mean, who else would be doing this --?

Mackenzie: I don't know, but he was there again today, outside Crimson Lights.

Amanda: You saw him?

Mackenzie: Not his face, but I saw the color of his shirt. It was orange, Mom. Orange plaid. Come on, who do we know? Remember that favorite shirt of his?

Amanda: My God. He's here? Ralph's here?

Lauren: I have no idea how Paul feels about Christine.

Michael: Than why are you so worried about it?

Lauren: I just wish his mother would stop meddling and stay out of his life.

Michael: You really do care about him.

Lauren: Of course I do.

Michael: Before Isabella came back into Paulís life, you two had gotten close, right?

Lauren: We've always been very close. Now, if you're insinuating that there was some sort of romance -- we've always been friends.

Michael: You can keep telling yourself that, Lauren. Maybe you'll start to believe it.

Lauren: I'm serious. Whether Chris comes back or stays overseas, it doesn't affect me one iota.

Michael: Oh, you don't think Chrisís return will shake up Paulís relationship with Isabella?

Lauren: You playing devil's advocate now?

Michael: No, no, I'm just curious about your take. You seem so interested.

Lauren: Not really. I mean, it's not gonna affect me, but it may bring Paul and Chris back together.

Michael: No, no way. She'll never go back to him. Not now that Isabellaís having his baby.

Lauren: Why? Because she has too much pride? Or because she's known that Paul has always wanted a child?

Michael: Probably both. So chin up, Lauren. You still may have a chance with Paul -- as more than a friend.

Lauren: I believe that ship has already sailed.

Michael: No, no, no, no, don't be so certain.

Lauren: And don't you underestimate Isabella. Now that she knows about Maryís trip, she's gonna do everything she can to protect herself. She's working overtime. And I bet right at this moment, she's doing everything she can to put her hooks even deeper into Paul.

Paul: I admit what you're saying does make sense.

Isabella: Sweetheart, Iím sorry. I didn't mean to come down on you so hard. I know this is a very stressful time for you, and this wasn't the best time to bring all of this up.

Paul: Oh, it's okay. I never should get you so upset.

Isabella: Still, I should have been more sensitive.

Paul: It's all right.

Isabella: I just get so emotional at times, and I got ahead of myself.

Paul: At least you do understand why I said what I said.

Isabella: Yes. Yes, I do. I had a failed marriage, too. That is the last thing I want to happen for either of us. This is different.

Paul: How?

Isabella: I never cared for anyone the way I care about you. And this baby is an incentive for us to make a decision. That is what my outburst was about. That's why I feel we should think about marriage. Will you just think about it, too?

Paul: I will.

Isabella: Seriously?

Paul: Seriously.

Mackenzie: Mom, before you freak out, remember, I didn't see his face.

Amanda: Still, that sounds so much like the shirt he used to wear.

Mackenzie: Yeah, I know. But I doubt he's the only person in the world with a shirt like that.

Amanda: You think it's him, though, don't you?

Mackenzie: I think to be wearing that shirt and watching me and then running away when I tried to see who it was --

Amanda: It's more than a coincidence, right?

Mackenzie: Look, I could be jumping to conclusions. Just because the man wears a shirt like Ralphís doesn't mean it's him.

Amanda: Yeah, but we can't rule out that possibility, can we? We can't afford to take that risk.

Mackenzie: Why would he come here, Mom? What is he after? What does he want from me?

Amanda: I don't know, baby. I don't know.

Gina: I saw you talking to Victor. It seemed pretty intense.

Diane: Tell me about it.

Gina: You okay?

Diane: I'm fine, Gina. Thanks.

Gina: Well, knowing your history, I can only imagine what it was about.

Diane: Nothing earth-shattering. He just rubs me the wrong way sometimes.

Gina: And vice-versa, Iím sure. Why don't we just change the subject to something more pleasant? Like where's that cute kid of yours?

Diane: Oh, he's with his nanny.

Gina: You know, he's a beautiful child.

Diane: Oh, the light of my life.

Gina: And that's high praise, coming from me, since I consider myself an expert on children, having the most adorable nephew in the world.

Diane: Oh?

Gina: My brother's son, Daniel.

Diane: Do you have any pictures of him?

Gina: Does a dog have fleas? Hold on a second. I got --

Diane: I'd love to see them.

Gina: Right here, because I show everyone. I have no shame.

[Both laugh]

Diane: Oh, how cute.

Gina: Thank you.

Diane: Oh, what a handsome little boy. Look at that face.

Gina: Yeah.

Diane: He's really sweet.

Gina: I'm so proud of him.

Diane: You should be.

Jack: To tell you the truth, this whole custody thing has been very difficult for Phyllis.

Brad: Oh, I can imagine.

Jack: Well, she feels the same way about Diane that I do, but she knows how much it means to me, and she's with me on this.

Ashley: Yeah, well, it's good the two of you are on the same page.

Jack: So tell me more about this dinner. I get a strange vibe here. I get the feeling it's about more than getting together and catching up.

Ashley: You know, we'll talk about it later, okay? In the meantime, I have to make a phone call. I'll see you two later.

Jack: So are you sticking around to tell me more about tonight?

Brad: Ash told you, Jack, we will talk about it at dinner. But I do have something more to say.

Jack: Shoot.

Brad: This whole business about trying to take Dianeís kid away from her -- how can you possibly justify that, Jack?
