Leanna: So, you're admitting it?
Victor: Does that surprise you?
Leanna: Yes, that the great victor Newman has finally been outsmarted.
Victor: You got me this time.
Leanna: Yes, I do. Right where I want you. But the way you've been catting about the country lately with your various exes -- you've made it quite easy for me. In fact, I have a tape of your latest liaison yesterday, with sweet little Hope on your flying boudoir.
Victor: Do you, now?
Leanna: Which is just one more reason that you're gonna want to squash me. Not that you'll be able to. You're very high profile -- in the public eye. That's the way you like it, I suppose. But it does make me immune from lawsuit, as long as I don't lie. And you know, Victor, I never lie.
Victor: Oh, perish the thought. Of course not. Which is why I was persuaded not to take any action against you.
Leanna: So your ordering me here is all for show?
Victor: No, it isn't. It isn't at all.
Victoria: What are you doing here?
Max: Excuse me?
Victoria: I just thought you would have left town by now.
Max: I have business here.
Victoria: Really? I thought your business was over. Or should I say your "dirty work"?
Max: Am I supposed to understand that?
Victoria: Oh, don't act innocent with me. You must have some idea why I might be upset.
Max: Something to do with your mother, I presume?
Victoria: Did you drive her to the airport? I mean, obviously this has something to do with you.
Max: Are you saying your mother's left town?
Victoria: Yeah, when she should be here with my father, planning their wedding.
Max: Does that mean your father proposed? She didn't accept?
Victoria: Yeah. And I'm sure you're real broken up about that.
Max: I'm sorry, Victoria. This must not be --
Victoria: Oh, shut up! I have no interest in anything you have to say. Not after what you pulled.
Mackenzie: Are you sure I can't get you anything, Grandma?
Katherine: I'm fine. No, darling. I'm fine. I'm just fine.
Mackenzie: Well, how about some herbal tea?
Katherine: No, I have coffee. Darling, truly, I am all right.
Mackenzie: Still, Grandma, after what Ralph put you through --
Katherine: You listen to me. The only harm done to me was physical. And that's easily mended. Your scars are not physical. They run very deep. And they're very real. Darling, that's why I worry so about you. Tell me something -- what happened in this room before Billy got here?
Mackenzie: Let's just say he got here in time. Leave it at that, okay?
Katherine: No, no, no, it's not okay. We won't leave it at that. Because if it continues to haunt you with what happened, it's --
Mackenzie: I don't think it will. Partly because Ralph is dead.
Katherine: Well, I didn't hear anything about the policemen saying that they had found a body.
Mackenzie: I know, I've called them a few times. They say the lake is so big, they may never find him.
Katherine: Doesn't that worry you?
Mackenzie: No. No, because I honestly believe, dead or alive, I'm finally rid of Ralph Hunnicut.
Katherine: I don't know, the way you say that --
Mackenzie: He was a horrible man, Grandma. But I think having to confront him really helped me. Now it's over. I'm free of Ralph. Here, and in here.
Katherine: I hope so.
Katherine: And how are things with you and Billy?
Mackenzie: I'm so happy to be with him again, Grandma. It's almost like --
Larry: Yo, Mrs. C., I finished changing the head gasket on the -- well, hey, Mac.
Larry: I didn't see you I here. How you doin', kid?
Mackenzie: Forget about me. I didn't know you were working here.
Larry: Yeah, your grandma hired me to look after her cars. Pretty sweet, huh?
Katherine: Not only that, Mr. Warton is living in one of the empty apartments over the garage.
Mackenzie: Oh, that's so cool. Welcome.
Larry: Thanks. Look, Mrs. C, would you mind if I grab something to drink? It's a real scorcher outside.
Katherine: No, of course I wouldn't mind. I want you to make yourself perfectly at home.
Larry: Thanks. I'll see you around.
Katherine: Oh, gosh. All right. Now, what we were talking about?
Mackenzie: Actually, Grandma, I have to go.
Mackenzie: Billy called a little while ago. He's coming home from the hospital. He wants me to meet him there.
Katherine: Of course. You go.
Mackenzie: I love you.
Katherine: I love you, too.
Mackenzie: You sure you're gonna be okay?
Katherine: I'm gonna be fine, darling. Thank you.
Colleen: So, time to close up, huh?
J.T.: Oh, yeah. I guess you're right.
Colleen: Where're you going from here?
J.T.: I don't know, probably the coffee house. Or points in between.
Colleen: What is that supposed to mean?
J.T.: Come on, you figure it out, kid. I got stuff to do.
John: J.T., you all right?
J.T.: Yeah. Yeah, I'm cool, Mr. Abbott. You?
John: I'm just fine. I'm here to see my granddaughter.
J.T.: She's right over there.
John: Thank you. Hello, sweetheart.
Colleen: Granddad, hey. What're you doing here?
John: I need to talk to you about something.
John: You're through for the day, aren't you?
Colleen: Yeah. What's going on?
John: I tell you what -- on second thought, let's go over to the coffee house. We'll have a little iced tea, and I'll get into this there, okay?
Brittany: Why're you talking about love? Where is that coming from?
Raul: Meaning, what? You don't want to put labels on how we feel?
Brittany: Raul, look, I don't know where you're going with this. Why are you looking at me like that?
Raul: Is it really so hard for you, being with me?
Brittany: Raul, where'd you get that?
Raul: Okay, so you're saying it's not true.
Brittany: Of course it's not true. Look, I've got to tag some of these things. So, why don't you go to the coffee house, and I'll meet you there in a bit?
Phyllis: Knock, knock!
Brittany: Phyllis? What are you doing here?
Phyllis: Just checking out the competition. Do you have a problem with that?
Brittany: No. Suit yourself. So, have you been keeping up with us on the 'net?
Phyllis: Yes, I have. And, to tell you the truth, it really blew me away, watching you and Raul become a couple. I mean, not in a million years, you know what I mean? It's probably fiction, though, right?
Phyllis: Well, the two of you getting together on camera then breaking up adds to the drama. A little scripted action, right?
Jill: Okay. Now, take it easy, darling. You just got out of the hospital. Remember what the doctor said.
Billy: Mom, relax. Okay? I'm fine. I'm just a little tired.
Jill: Well, that's all the more reason to get off your feet. Let me help you here. Okay. All right. Can I get you some juice? Or do you want a sandwich?
Billy: Mom, I'm fine. Okay? Maybe later, when Mac gets here.
Jill: Okay. You know what? Once you have fully recuperated, you still have the entire summer ahead of you. And I was thinking that a total diversion -- I mean, a complete change of scenery -- might be fun. What do you think?
Billy: I don't know, Mom. That all depends on your definition of fun.
Jill: Well, I called your college, and they have this fantastic program in England. I mean, think of it, Billy. It's at Oxford. You'd be at Oxford. You know how great that place is?
Billy: Wait, wait, wait -- slow down, Mom. All right? Look, I appreciate your efforts. But you know, I want to stay home. You know, be with the people I care about for the rest of the summer. Look, that includes you.
Jill: Oh, Billy.
Billy: Oh, hey, that must be Mac. Will you grab that for me?
Diego: So, I hear things were hopping at the store today?
J.T.: Yeah, not that your little brother noticed. He was too busy breathing all over her royal majesty.
Diego: Come again?
J.T.: The princess. Brittany. Man, has that chick done a number on him.
Diego: What are you talking about?
J.T.: Hey, you're family. I figured if you knew your little brother was headed for major heartache, you'd want to do something to help. Unless you think it's a match made in heaven -- which I doubt.
Diego: What can I say? I mean, Raul seems happy.
J.T.: Yeah, but trust me -- he won't be, not for long. Brittany will see to that.
Max: Excuse me, Victoria. What did you mean, what I've done?
Victoria: Oh, come on. Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about.
Max: Believe me, I don't. I am very sorry that you're so upset.
Victoria: Yeah, I'm sure you are.
Max: Look, I know you want your parents to be happy. But I've seen the pain your mother's been put through by your father. And that just shouldn't be -- not if two people are really meant to be together.
Victoria: You know, where the hell do you get off, saying these things? You don't know a thing about my family.
Max: I know enough to realize you got some sort of fantasy going on about your parents, about them getting reunited. Have you ever stopped and asked yourself, is that truly what's best for your mother? The lady ain't doing what she's doing because of something I said. She hardly knows me. It's your father, Victoria. He brought this on by what he did. And it's not as if Nikki didn't give him a chance to explain. She still felt the need to get away. That speaks volumes to me. Doesn't it to you?
Billy: Whoa. Geez, Mac. You hug me any tighter, I'm not gonna be able to breathe.
Mackenzie: Oh, my gosh. I'm sorry.
Billy: Oh, man, I was just kidding. You can hug me as tight as you like for as long as you like. Oh.
Mackenzie: I'm so glad you're home, Billy.
Billy: Yeah, it feels good to be home.
Jill: So, darling -- are you sure that there's nothing I can get you?
Billy: I got everything I need right here.
Jill: Mackenzie, would you like something?
Mackenzie: No, thank you. But, um, thanks for asking.
Jill: Remember, I'm gonna be calling later for a report. Remember what the doctor said.
Billy: Yes, yes, yes. Rest, rest, rest, more rest.
Mackenzie: So, how you feeling?
Billy: Feeling -- changes. A little dizzy.
Diego: Why you sneaking in the back way?
Raul: I'm not sneaking in. I just don't feel like getting the third degree.
Diego: What, from me you mean, about what happened at the party last night? Not that I'm in any position to throw stones about drinking a few beers and all --
Raul: Bro, I'm not looking to party every night. Okay? I was just checking things out.
Diego: With Brittany?
Raul: What? You think she's, like, leading me down the road to hell or something, Diego?
Diego: Come on. You really want me to answer that?
Raul: Look, I realize you don't have a very high opinion of Brittany.
Diego: And I'm not the only one.
Raul: Oh, let me guess. You've been talking to J.T. Oh, come on, man. He's jealous. He wants to talk trash about somebody, so he's just picking on my girl.
Diego: Which he has no right to do? Oh, because Brittany is so perfect.
Brittany: That's not the way it is, Phyllis.
Phyllis: Really? Meaning, you and Raul? It's a real relationship?
Brittany: Yes. It's a real relationship, all right. It's very real.
Phyllis: Oh, the way you say that it just sounds like, you know -- you want to talk about it?
Brittany: Talk about what?
Phyllis: Your torn feelings.
Brittany: Did I say I was having torn feelings?
Phyllis: Am I wrong?
Brittany: What, are you some kind of psychic or something?
Phyllis: Well, it doesn't take a psychic to figure out what's going on here. The two of you are a very unlikely couple. You're a party girl. He's a serious guy. There's bound to be friction.
Brittany: You know what? I already get enough grief about this from J.T. I don't need you to keep piling it on, too.
Phyllis: Oh, no, no, no -- that's not what I'm trying to do. Believe me, I've been there. I know how you feel. I'm not busting your chops.
Brittany: So what's the answer? How do I deal with this?
Phyllis: Oh, did I say I have answers? No, no, I don't have answers. I'm the last person you should be asking for those. Especially now.
Brittany: So what does that mean? You and Jack having problems?
Phyllis: Listen, what I'm saying is, the older you get, the more that you know -- what can I tell you about love? I mean -- I don't know. It is what it is. Okay? That's why they write all those songs about it.
Brittany: Gee, Phyllis, you know I could have gotten that pearl of wisdom from a fortune cookie.
Phyllis: Yeah, probably so.
Brittany: Well, here's what I think about all this romance stuff. If it doesn't work for me, then I don't need to give in and accept it. Not until I'm damned good and ready -- if I ever am.
Leanna: If you're trying to intimidate me, you're wasting your time.
Victor: Does that mean you're not interested in asking why I wanted you to come here?
Leanna: I think it's obvious. You spoke to your attorney, and he told you not to fight me.
Victor: It isn't my attorney who told me not to fight you. It's three women -- Julia, Hope and Ramona. The three women whose good names you've dragged through the mud, in order to draw them to me -- yet again.
Leanna: Wait a minute. Are you telling me that you --?
Victor: What I'm telling you is that they will file lawsuits against you. Three individual lawsuits, with my backing. It will bring you to your knees.
Leanna: If you think this is scaring me, then you --
Victor: You had better be scared, Leanna Love. Because you're in for the fight of your life, I promise you that.
Leanna: Court battles are rarely that cut and dried, Victor.
Victor: I know you're not stupid. And you know that court battles very often aren't won by staying power, but by the kind of attorneys you can afford. And trust me, these women can afford very good attorneys. They have a lot of time and a lot of money on their hands.
Leanna: I see. So they're prepared to have you use them in this way? To be dragged back into the spotlight --
Victor: You're not listening.
Leanna: -- And devoured by the media?
Victor: You're not listening to me. These women are as angry as I am, perhaps even more so. And they will not rest until they get even with you. Remember that.
Leanna: Okay, fine. Let's assume for a moment that you have me over a barrel. I gather you have some sort of compromise in mind?
Victor: I want you to make a full retraction of everything you said. I want you to apologize publicly to the three women and to me.
Victor: Mmm-hmm. Otherwise, Leanna Love, three individual lawsuits will be filed against you. Trust me, you ain't gonna win this one. Because the jury who listens to this case will be far more sympathetic to a blind farmer from Kansas than to an obnoxious, vulgar gossipmonger like you.
Jill: Whose bandanna is that?
Jill: Are you deaf? I said who does this belong to?
Katherine: Fine. I believe it's Mr. Warton's.
Katherine: And what?
Jill: And how did it get in here?
Katherine: Well, how do you think? It blew in from parts unknown.
Jill: Don't be such a --
Katherine: Ask stupid questions and you're going to get stupid --
Jill: Whoa! Sit back down. You have some explaining to do.
Katherine: Oh, come on, please. What in the hell are you talking about?
Jill: I am talking about you and your roughneck partner in crime. I know exactly what the two of you are up to.
Katherine: You are still yammering. What do you have to yammer about?
Jill: You moved him into the rooms over the garage. And I know that it was another of your attempts to make me miserable living here.
Katherine: You are so paranoid. So paranoid.
Jill: What, are you saying I'm wrong?
Katherine: No. Yes, that's exactly what I am telling you. Though I do have to wonder --
Jill: Wonder what?
Katherine: Well, when you're this bothered by a man, it usually means -- you're bothered by him. Do you get my drift?
[ Jill scoffs ]
Caitlin: Oh, my God. I love that song.
Colleen: So that's why you want to talk to me? You can't make my recital tonight.
John: Honey, I am so sorry. You know, I hate dropping this on you at the last minute.
Colleen: It's okay. I understand. Not that I'm not disappointed.
John: Not as disappointed as I am. I was so looking forward to seeing you just dance your heart out.
Colleen: Oh, well. Not to worry. I'm sure Dad will videotape the whole thing. And you can watch it after your meeting.
Caitlin: He's here!
John: Now, don't tell me that my beautiful granddaughter has a boy in her life?
John: Someone from your class?
Colleen: Oh, well, look at the time. Guess you ought to be after your meeting, huh? Unless there's something else?
John: Actually, Colleen, there is.
John: My secretary, Lydia, worked rather late last night. And she was walking through the lobby. She saw a number of kids that were in the boutique after closing hours.
Colleen: Well, what about them?
John: She thought she recognized you and wondered what you were doing there so late. I said, "you must be mistaken." And then I realized something --
Colleen: Realized what?
John: That I never saw you at home last night. I just assumed that you were in your bedroom, because you couldn't go to the party at the park. Now, you were in your bedroom all evening, weren't you?
Colleen: Yes, Granddad. I was. Watching TV.
John: All right, good. Good luck tonight. I don't think you're gonna you need it. And you will be wonderful.
Jill: It's happened! You have become certifiable. I don't like what you're insinuating.
Katherine: Oh, Jill, I'm not insinuating. I'm merely making an observation about you and Mr. Warton.
Jill: Oh, for God's sake, don't even suggest it!
Katherine: Well, I'm not, but you are, by the way you've been acting.
Jill: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Katherine: Jill, listen to me. There's nothing wrong with that man. Nothing.
Jill: I didn't say there was anything wrong with him.
Katherine: Well, then, why are you pretending you're not interested? Because, God knows, you could do worse. You have done worse.
Jill: Would you stop it?!
Katherine: Hitting a little too close to that mark, am I not?
Jill: You are completely off the mark, old woman!
Katherine: Well, I wouldn't be so quick to nix the idea, for heaven's sakes. After all, getting involved with a man like -- Larry, perfect timing.
Larry: Oh, yeah?
Katherine: Yes. Jill was just talking about you, were you not, dear heart?
Larry: You mind telling me what that was all about?
Jill: I assure you, I have no idea.
Larry: Okay. Why are you staring at me?
Jill: I am not staring at you, all right? I just don't think it's a good idea to be walking around the house like that.
Larry: Like what?
Jill: You know what? Never mind. Why do I even expect --?
Larry: Whoa, whoa, Jill, why has everything gotten so weird all of a sudden, huh? I thought that we had gotten past that.
Jill: Well, you thought wrong. Because now I know that Katherine is definitely pulling your strings.
Larry: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Lady, look, nobody -- I'm gonna repeat -- nobody pulls Larry Warton's strings.
Jill: Oh, is that so?
Jill: Well, then why don't you prove it to me?
Larry: Okay. How?
Jill: Tell me what you know about Mackenzie and my son.
Larry: What do you mean, what do I know?
Jill: Well, I just came from seeing them. And it's obvious to me they are closer than ever.
Larry: Well, I still don't get what you're asking.
Jill: Oh, come on. You were dating her mother. You've become very close to Mackenzie. If she has confided in you about my son, I want to know about it, Mr. Warton, right now.
Victoria: I'll tell you what speaks volumes. The way you've insinuated yourself into my mother's life for one purpose only -- to fill her head with lies about my father.
Max: That just isn't true.
Victoria: And I suppose next you're gonna claim that you weren't sitting here chatting it up with your good friend Leanna Love.
Max: Leanna Love is no friend of mine. I thought I made that clear to you.
Victoria: What do you take me for? I'm not an idiot, for God's sake.
Max: No, but you are very angry right now. Look, I just hope, in time, you'll get to see that what I want is what's best for your family, that's all.
Victoria: And what does that include? Making a play for my mother? Forget about it. It's not gonna happen.
Max: Well, I'm sorry you feel this way. I only hope you're thinking of what will make your mother's life better -- not yours.
Leanna: I assume this offer of yours isn't negotiable.
Victor: Take it or leave it. Either way, you and your people are gonna pay dearly for this.
Leanna: So, the man's broadening his target, taking down everyone who's associated with me.
Victor: There's one person in particular. A sleaze ball named Maxwell Hollister.
Leanna: Well, it's funny you should mention him. Because I got the vibe the other day that he was quite smitten with Nikki. Is that why you want to strike out at him, too?
Victor: It has nothing to do with that. It's because I think he concocted this little scheme with you. You've got 24 hours. Show yourself out.
Leanna: That won't be necessary -- as long as it isn't true, I'll make the retraction and apologize. Congratulations, Victor. You've won this round. But you haven't won everything, or everyone.
Raul: I never said Brittany's perfect. No one is. Including yourself, big brother.
Diego: And I am the first to admit it.
Raul: My point is that everybody's so damn worried about Brittany supposedly corrupting me, but nobody looks at her, how's she's changed, what she's given up to be with me.
Diego: Like what? Partying? That's a big sacrifice.
Raul: I think she feels like she doesn't even fit in with her friends anymore. And, to me, that's important. Not that you'd give a damn.
Diego: Whoa! You know what? Don't go putting words in my mouth.
Raul: That's how you feel, though, right?
Diego: You know, you are my brother, and I care a hell of a lot about you and what you think. It's just --
Raul: What? You think I'm getting in way over my head with this girl?
Diego: I don't know. Are you?
Raul: Sometimes I feel so close to Brittany. You know, like this is exactly what she wants. But then, all of the sudden, she pulls away, like she did today. And I realize I don't know what she feels.
Diego: It just sounds like she's got a lot going on inside.
Raul: Which you're gonna crucify her for?
Diego: Damn it, Raul! No. It's just I think, if you're already having these concerns, I just want you to stop and ask yourself -- is this something you totally want to throw yourself into?
Raul: Falling in love with Brittany is the best thing that's ever happened to me. Yes, she's complicated, Diego. And, no, things aren't perfect. But I am gonna find a way to make this work. One way or another.
Mackenzie: Here you go. One glass of homemade lemonade.
Billy: Mmm, thank you.
Mackenzie: Anything else I can get you?
Billy: Well, a kiss would be nice. Strictly for medicinal purposes, of course.
Mackenzie: So -- were you as surprised as I was?
Billy: About what?
Mackenzie: Your mom was actually polite to me when she was here earlier. There was also that moment in the hospital.
Billy: What moment was that?
Mackenzie: My mom had just walked out. My world was completely shattered. And Jill was very sympathetic to me. Actually took me in her arms, if you could believe that. Which blew me away. But, at the same time, it was the most human thing in the world.
Billy: Wow, so what, you're thinking that you misjudged my mother?
Mackenzie: More like underestimated her.
Mackenzie: What? You don't think that's possible?
Billy: Well, let's just say that I have serious doubts that my mom's totally reformed.
Mackenzie: Why? Do you know something that I don't?
Billy: Well, before you came, she was trying to get me out of the country for the entire summer and away from you.
Mackenzie: Well, I guess some things never change, right?
Billy: Yeah. Then, on the other hand, a month from now, everything's gonna change. We'll be going to two different colleges.
Mackenzie: In different cities.
Billy: And we finally just found our way back to each other. The thought of having to leave you again --
Mackenzie: I know. I know, I feel the same way.
Billy: Mac, we wasted so much time -- dealing with disagreements and misunderstandings. Now we only have a couple of weeks with each other. It doesn't seem fair. I don't even want to go to college.
Mackenzie: I don't want to be apart from you.
Billy: I don't want to be apart from you.
Mackenzie: I wish there was just some way that -- you and I, we love each other so much. You know, we've worked so hard to get to where we are. And now to be ripped apart? How can we do that, Billy? How can we let that happen?
Caitlin: Hey, come on. I know you hated lying to your granddad. But what were you going to do? Admit you sneaked out?
Colleen: I couldn't.
Colleen: It doesn't mean I feel good about it.
Caitlin: Oh, my God. He's coming this way.
Colleen: Go, go.
Caitlin: No way. I want to hang with you two.
Colleen: Go now, or I'll kill you.
J.T.: So, you didn't tell your granddad about what happened last night, did you?
Colleen: No way.
J.T.: Good. Good. Because if he found out that I saved you from the cops --
Colleen: Don't worry. He's not going to.
J.T.: So why was he here?
Colleen: He was just telling me that he couldn't make it to my dance recital tonight.
J.T.: Oh. Well, that's too bad.
Colleen: Yeah. Well, at least my dad'll be there.
J.T.: Hey, cheer up, kid. If I was jumping around in tights, I wouldn't want anybody watching. See ya.
Larry: Look, I know you're not a big fan of Mac's.
Jill: What a huge understatement that is.
Larry: And I also know why.
Jill: And you know that how?
Larry: Through Sean. He told me that this whole business with her and your son has been a major thorn in your side.
Jill: Isn't that great? Isn't that great how my boyfriend went blabbing to you about my personal issues?!
Larry: Will you just chill out, Jill, okay? It's not what you're thinking.
Jill: I'll tell you what I'm thinking! I'm thinking, every single day that passes, I'm lucky to be rid of that guy.
Larry: You don't mean that.
Jill: Don't you dare presume to tell me what I mean.
Larry: Come on, Jill. You act like you don't even care about the guy. What you and he shared is --
Jill: Is over! He's gone! And we have both moved on. End of story.
Larry: Well, then how come I don't believe that? Huh? I mean, I know it hurts. Because I'm going through something similar myself. But what you and Sean shared was -- look, what I think you need right now is a friend.
Jill: A friend?
Jill: Okay, a friend. And exactly what kind of a friend do I need, Mr. Warton?
Colleen: Hey, Dad, it's me. I just wanted to remind you about my dance recital tonight. Granddad can't be there, so be sure to bring your camcorder, okay? I'll see you there.
[Knock at door]
Victor: Thank you for saving me the trouble of tracking you down. Hello, Mr. Hollister. How the hell are you?
