Dru: What did you say?

Neil: I said Devon’s coming home with us.

Lily: Daddy, do you mean it?

Dru: Neil, come on, are you serious? I don't want to wake up and find out that this is some kind of a dream.

Neil: I'm dead serious. It's no dream.

Dru: What changed your mind?

Neil: I got sick and tired of Mr. Attitude here not appreciating what he has.

Devon: What I have is a one-way ticket to some group home, ran by a bunch of control freaks who could care less if I live or die. That's what I have.

Neil: That's not true. You have friends. You have people who care about you, who want to help you grow up to be a decent human being.

Devon: Yeah, and people who bail when the going gets tough.

Neil: We're not gonna bail. Not this time.

Dru: We're not gonna bail on you. Neil, I never gave up hope that you would change your mind.

Neil: I guess it finally sunk in-- this kid is absolutely nowhere without a family. Someone's gotta knock that chip off your shoulder, and someone's gonna be me.

(Knock on door)

Nikki: Come in.

Sharon: Nikki, hi. Sorry to bother you. Have you seen Brad?

Nikki: No. What are you doing here?

Sharon: This is my first day. I thought you knew.

Nikki: Are you telling me that you're still planning on working at Jabot?

Sharon: Yes, why wouldn't I be?

Nikki: I guess I just assumed that, now that Nicholas is going to be running Newman Enterprises, that you wouldn't take this job.

Sharon: Well, why would you assume a crazy thing like that?

Nikki: Oh, I don't know. Maybe because you have two children at home who need you? (Intercom beeps)

Nikki: Nikki Newman.

Brad: Nikki, its Brad. I-I need you to do me a favor.

Nikki: Um, sure, what is it?

Brad: Today's Sharon’s first day. She's supposed to meet with a couple of reporters, do sort of a, you know, a get-to-know-you thing. Would you mind walking through that for me?

Nikki: Sure, I could do that. Is everything all right?

Brad: Um, yeah, yeah. E-everything's fine. I just need to, uh, take care of a couple things here at home.

Nikki: Okay, no problem.

Brad: Okay, thanks. I appreciate it. I'll talk to you soon.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashley: So I think that's everything.

Brad: Why, I can send anything you missed over to your dad's house.

Ashley: I'd rather do this as cleanly as possible since I'm not going to be living here after today.

Brad: Listen, we still haven't talked about the best way to tell Abby, and obviously, we can't put this off any longer.

Ashley: Obviously, so what are we gonna tell her?

Brad: The most important thing is that she understands that this is not her fault, that this has nothing to do with her.

Ashley: Why don't you just come out and say it, Brad? I know what you're thinking-- that you're not to blame for any of this. That Abby’s gonna suffer and it's all my fault. So is that what you want to tell her? That Mommy's responsible for everything bad that's happening right now?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kay: Any good news in that paper today?

Arthur: Well, Katherine, what are you doing here?

Kay: Well, I simply thought I would catch you before you left.

Arthur: Left for where? I have no plans to go anywhere today.

Kay: Then you must like it here.

Arthur: Well, it's better than the motel. The food's good, the gym's close by and it has everything a man could want.

Kay: Except for a woman you could love.

Arthur: Are you trying to tell me something, Katherine?

Kay: Do I have to spell it out for you, Arthur?

Arthur: Well, based on all your suspicions about me lately, I think maybe you'd better.

Kay: I'm taking a leap of faith. Let's set a date.

Arthur: A date? A date to do what, exactly?

Kay: To be married. I don't wanna wait any longer.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Jack: You should have seen Elise’s attitude change. It was like we'd been married for years and I'd forgotten our anniversary. She said I was being uncaring, unfeeling. Jill? Have you heard a word I just said?

Jill: Yes. You were talking about marrying your tennis partner.

Jack: Oh, boy, were you not listening. What, are you spying on your folks?

Jill: I'm sorry, Jack.

Jack: For the record, Elise and I are still just friends.

Jill: Well, good, 'cause you could do a lot better.

Jack: It is nice, though, to see two people fall in love late in life.

Jill: Are you talking about my mother and Arthur?

Jack: That is what you're thinking about, isn't it?

Jill: What?

Jack: I'm just saying it was great for my dad. From the day Gloria moved in, it's like he's a different person. Change of subject. Have they found a new C.E.O. for Chancellor Industries yet?

Jill: Arthur is my father, but that is all I know about him. So who is he really? Who is the real Arthur Hendricks?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nikki: I know you're not gonna like what I'm about to say--

Sharon: Well, if you're gonna give me another speech about how a woman's place is in the home--

Nikki: No, that is not it. A woman's place is wherever she wants it to be. I think it's wonderful that women can have careers.

Sharon: But...?

Nikki: Have you thought about how this will be? How hard it's gonna be for you to balance the demands of being a mother and having a full-time job?

Sharon: Of course I have, and I know that it's not going to be easy, but we'll manage.

Nikki: Really? How are you gonna do that? You're gonna be working very long hours here. Nicholas is gonna be swamped at Newman. Where does that leave Noah and Cassie? They're gonna come home every day to an empty house having to fend for themselves. Are you really okay with that?

Sharon: Look, Cassie is 14 years old. She's perfectly capable of managing herself and her little brother for a couple of hours.

Nikki: What if there's an emergency?

Sharon: Well, Miguel has agreed to be around after school.

Nikki: Oh, I see. You're planning on shoving your children off on him.

Sharon: No, that is not what I'm doing.

Nikki: Let me remind you that he does not work for you. He has other responsibilities that don't include babysitting your children.

Sharon: If you would let me finish, I was going to say that we have contacted our old babysitter Lisa and she's agreed to come back to work for us. She's wonderful with the kids, and they love her, plus now she's studying to be a schoolteacher. She can help them with their homework. It's a perfect arrangement.

Nikki: Not as perfect as having you there.

Sharon: So what are you saying? Because I have children, I can't have a job like millions of other women do?

Nikki: Sharon, a lot of women work outside of the home because they have to for financial reasons-- that does not describe you.

Sharon: So? You don't need the money, and you're here.

Nikki: My children are grown. You didn't see me working when they were little. Besides, I have a big investment in this company. You're only doing this because you woke up one day and decided you weren't satisfied.

Sharon: Hmm, and that makes me a terrible person, right?

Nikki: I just think that you need to evaluate your options here. Do you know how many women would kill to be in your shoes, to be able to be at home with their children? They're only little once, Sharon. Don't you wanna be there? Time passes very quickly.

Sharon: I realize that.

Nikki: Well, then why aren't you taking advantage of this opportunity?

Sharon: Because, Nikki, look, I-I have an opportunity here, too. This is my chance to do something on my own, to have my own identity. You know, for years I have been known as Nick's wife or Cassie and Noah’s mother, and I love being those things, it's just--I just want something of my very own, and it doesn't mean I'm gonna abandon my kids.

Nikki: How do I know that? You've done it before.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jamal: Are you ready to go?

Neil: Actually, there's been a little change of plans, Jamal.

Dru: Yeah. Devon is gonna come home with us.

Jamal: Really? That's great.

Neil: Would you mind calling Ms. Davis, let her know what's happening?

Jamal: Oh, no problem, Mr. Winters.

Dru: Thank you.

Jamal: All right.

Neil: Thanks.

Lily: Well, aren't you happy, Devon?

Devon: I'm not going.

Dru: What?

Neil: What do you mean you're not going?

Devon: Listen, all right, you are just doing this to prove to your wife and to your daughter what a big man you are, okay? The guy in charge. You don't want me, 'cause I know that the second you get tired of me, I'm gonna be right back where I started, okay? So thank you, but no, thanks.

Dru: Devon, the first time that we brought you into our home, you knew that that was temporary. This is completely different. We are committed to you 100%.

Devon: Oh, come on. Come on. Why would he wanna help me? He doesn't even like me.

Neil: That's not true. I actually like you a lot. I've always wanted to help you.

Devon: Yeah, right.

Neil: And so has this lady right here. Devon, if I thought we could, we'd take in a hundred foster kids, but that's not realistic. Fostering you, however, is.

Devon: Really? And what's so different now?

Neil: I realized that your attitude might just stop you from becoming the man than I know you can be, and come hell or high water, I'm gonna help you to become that man.

Devon: Well, now hold up a second, 'cause you're suddenly making this group home sound a little better. I mean, how tough are you planning on being?

Neil: Nothing you can't handle.

Devon: Really? And what if I don't wanna handle anything?

Dru: Then that will tell me that you're not being as smart as I know you can be.

Devon: Why, 'cause I don't wanna get tossed back and forth like a football?

Dru: Devon, you have two choices, okay? You can come home with us or you can go live in that group home. I hope you'll choose to come home with us. Now I understand why you don't trust us, I understand that, but we are behind you 100%. So what's it gonna be? All right, I'm gonna give you some time to think about it, okay?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brad: That's not what I'm saying.

Ashley: Are you sure? Because you never seem to miss an opportunity to remind me that we're at this point because of me.

Brad: Abby doesn't need to know what happened between us. The only thing she needs to know is that we both love her.

Ashley: So you're not gonna blame me?

Brad: Even if I want to, we have to present a united front. We have to make her feel as secure as possible while at the same time making sure she understands that there is nothing she can do or say that's going to change our minds.

Ashley: That sounds good. It still doesn't answer the question of how we're gonna tell her. There's no way it's not gonna be really painful for her.

Ashley: I have an idea, Brad. It's not perfect. I mean, I've heard of other people doing it. Maybe we could just, I don't know, live here together in the house for Abby’s sake.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Jack: My God. No wonder you've been so spaced out.

Jill: And, Jack, I know that all those accusations are probably totally untrue.

Jack: The authorities haven't proven anything, right?

Jill: Not one thing, but I gotta tell you, Arthur’s stepson tells a very convincing story.

Jack: Is Katherine convinced?

Jill: Apparently not, judging by the way she and my father are looking so absorbed in each other.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Arthur: You're really serious, aren't you?

Kay: Oh, very serious, yes.

Arthur: Well, what about those newspaper clippings your detective friend gave you?

Kay: What about them?

Arthur: Are you ready to ignore all that?

Kay: They're innuendos, insinuations. I mean, none of it proves anything.

Arthur: Then you believe me.

Kay: Well, if I didn't-- if I didn't, I wouldn't want to marry you, darling.

Arthur: You've discarded all your doubts?

Kay: Yes.

Arthur: But what if the doubts resurface?

Kay: I will not let them.

Arthur: Then what happened in Seattle doesn't matter to you.

Kay: Well, let's just say it's not longer an issue. Oh, God, I love you, Arthur. My life would be so dreary without you. I would just wilt and die anyway. It doesn't really matter that you're a killer, does it?

Arthur: Katherine, that's not the least bit funny.

Kay: No, no, no. Sorry. (Laughs) no, I promise, I promise here and now we'll never speak about your past again. We'll only look to the future together. Fair enough?

----------------------------------------------------------------

Jill: All I want her to do is to hold off on the wedding just until we can sort out all the unanswered questions.

Jack: What's your gut telling you?

Jill: That I love him. He's my father. I just desperately want all these accusations to be the rantings and ravings of an angry, embittered man, but as hard as I try...

Jack: You can't overcome your suspicions.

Jill: I can't tell you how many sleepless nights I've spent worrying about my mother.

Jack: No, I can only imagine. Look, I don't know what you can do about it.

Jill: I was hoping that that's what you'd tell me.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Sharon: You just had to bring that up, didn't you?

Nikki: Sharon, you're the one who disappeared for months with no word. Those poor kids didn't know if they were ever gonna see their mother again.

Sharon: Are we just gonna stand here and trade insults all day?

Nikki: I'm just asking you. Are you really thinking about them this time, or as usual, is it just about you?

Sharon: Of course I am thinking about my children. I think about them all day long. I love them more than anything.

Nikki: Just not enough to put their needs first.

Sharon: Look, obviously we're not going to see eye-to-eye on this.

Nikki: Well, hallelujah. We finally agree on something.

Sharon: Okay, then let's just drop it, and I'll go find Brad.

Nikki: Don't bother. That was Brad on the phone earlier. He's not coming in today.

Sharon: But we have these reporters to meet with.

Nikki: Yes, I know. He told me. I'm gonna be sitting in instead.

Sharon: You?

Nikki: You certainly can't meet them by yourself.

Sharon: What's wrong, Nikki? You afraid that I'll say the wrong thing and I'll screw up?

Nikki: Well, it's your first day, you have no experience. Yeah, I am.

Sharon: Well, look, I know you're not thrilled to have me here, but I hope you will remember something.

Nikki: What is that?

Sharon: That once upon a time you were just like me. You walked into this building on your first day of work with no experience, and no one thought you could cut it, either, but you proved them wrong. My husband wants this for me, and I wanna make him proud and I wanna make the family proud. It would mean a lot if I knew I could count on you. (Telephone beeps)

Nikki: Yes, Andrew. Okay, send them in. The reporters are here. Are you really ready for this?

Sharon: Ready as I'll ever be.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Devon: You know, Lily, your parents are a couple of hypocrites.

Lily: Now why would you say something like that?

Devon: Because they can't even make up their minds.

Lily: Okay, I will admit that it took my father a little while to come around.

Devon: Lily, I'm not stupid, all right? I overheard them arguing about me. I'm surprised they didn't split up over it.

Lily: No, see, you don't get it because you've never had parents. Just because people argue doesn't mean they don't still love each other.

Devon: Well, you know what? You could have fooled me, 'cause I saw your mom give your dad an evil look a time or two.

Lily: That's because she wanted you to keep living with us, and I did, too.

Devon: Yeah, and at the same time, your dad couldn't wait to be rid of me.

Lily: No, you don't get it. It's not that simple. Normally when people wanna foster a kid, they have to go through this whole big process of paperwork, but you just fell in our laps.

Devon: So?

Lily: So it's all been backwards, but trust me, okay? When my dad makes a promise, he keeps it.

----------------------------------------------

Dru: Neil, it's gonna be a daggone shame if we lose Devon now after everything we've been through.

Neil: Don't worry, we won’t.

Dru: Are you sure about that? I just hope I didn't scare him, but I was just so frustrated. I'm desperate to have another chance.

Neil: At what?

Dru: To make a difference in this boy's life. I have come to love him, neil.

Neil: I know, baby. I know.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Nikki: Allow me to introduce you to Jabot's new spokesperson--Sharon Newman. Sharon, this is Gwen Peterson from the "Genoa City Chronicle."

Sharon: Nice to meet you.

Gwen: You, too.

Nikki: And this is Jim Hollings, "Midwest Business Journal."

Sharon: Mr. Hollings.

Jim: A pleasure.

Nikki: Well, they're all yours.

Sharon: Well, please have a seat. First of all, I'd like to thank you both for coming. Although we've never met, I feel like I already know you. I enjoy reading your columns.

Gwen: Including my last one?

Sharon: You were a little tough on Jabot, but you also made some very good points. We're always looking for ways to improve.

Gwen: Well, according to the press release, this is your first day?

Sharon: Yes. I have been on the job for 45 minutes now.

Jim: Which lines are you representing?

Sharon: I think the plan is for me to be spokesperson for the company at large.

Gwen: Any surprises so far?

Sharon: Yes, a few, but that's the way it is with any new experience, right? Um, everyone here has been really wonderful, and I think I'll be very happy here.

Jim: How does your husband feel about you joining the Jabot team?

Sharon: My husband?

Jim: You are married to Nicholas Newman, correct? Rumor has it that he's just been appointed C.E.O. of Newman Enterprises. How does he feel about you representing their archrival in the cosmetic business?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brad: Are you kidding me? No, ash. No, I'm not gonna have you living here playing house, acting like my wife, when you're not my wife, even if I am still in love with you.

Ashley: You are?

Brad: You think I could just walk away, just turn my back on those feelings?

Ashley: You mean like I did.

Brad: You told me I'm always second to Victor, and there's nothing you can do or say that will ever erase that from my memory. I can never forget that when push came to shove, you chose him.

Ashley: I was wrong.

Brad: Yeah. Well, now we have to deal with the fallout, and we can't live a lie just to protect Abby from the fact that our marriage is over. That wouldn't be fair to her, and it would only hurt her more in the long run.

Ashley: Yeah, you're right.

Brad: I'm sorry it has to be this way, Ash.

Ashley: I'm sorry, too.

Brad: As much as it hurts...

Brad: There's no going back.

Ashley: So how are we gonna do it? How are we gonna tell Abby that her parents' marriage is over?

Brad: I don't know.

Brad: We just have to find the words. There's no easy way. No matter what we tell her, it's still gonna break her heart.

Ashley: Mine, too, Brad, but like you said...

Brad: We can't live a lie. We owe Abby the truth as much as we owe it to ourselves. (Footsteps approaching)

Abby: Is someone going on a trip?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Dru: Devon, have you made a decision, honey?

Devon: I wanna know, are you guys absolutely sure that this is what you wanna do?

Dru: Yes.

Neil: Absolutely positive, Devon.

Devon: All right.

Dru: You'll come?

Devon: Yes, I'll come.

Dru: Oh, I promise you will not be sorry.

Jamal: Well, Ms. Davis says she's thrilled.

Dru: Of course she is. She always said that we were the best family for Devon. Now we have some paperwork to work out, right?

Jamal: Right, right.

Neil: Hey, Jamal, can you do us a favor? Call the group home and let them know that Devon won't be coming after all.

Jamal: Okay, I'll take care of it. Drive Devon to your place later?

Neil: That would be great. Thanks.

Jamal: Okay.

Neil: Devon, now listen, I'm not gonna make a big speech or anything, but, uh...

Devon: Oh, gosh. Well, here comes a list of rules again, right?

Neil: No, no, no, no. You've got those rules down to a science. Just so you know, when you join a family, it comes not only with privileges, but also obligations.

Lily: Dad.

Neil: Honey, this is important. We realize that you've been in and out of group homes. You've had a tough time.

Devon: Yeah, well, what's your point?

Neil: My point is you need to step it up and make sure that stuff doesn't happen.

Dru: Neil, Neil, Devon fit beautifully into our family before, and he will again.

Neil: True, he did. I just wanna make absolutely certain that we're all on the same page.

Devon: You know what? I'll do my best, Mr. Winters. Okay? That's all I can promise.

Neil: That's all anyone can promise, to do their best. Now there's one other thing.

Devon: What's that?

Neil: Come here. Devon, welcome to the Winters family.

Devon: Didn't we already do this hugging bit before?

Dru: Yes, but you can never get enough love.

Lily: Hey, is it okay if I stay with Devon and ride home with him and Jamal?

Neil: Yeah, sure.

Dru: Yeah.

Neil: That's fine, that's fine. Go ahead.

Dru: Okay. See ya.

Neil: All right. We'll see you at home.

Dru: Thank you so much.

Neil: Bye, baby. Thanks, Jamal.

Jamal: All right.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jack: Sugar, there's only one piece of advice I can give you.

Jill: What is that?

Jack: If you wanna be a loving, caring daughter, you gotta look out for your mother.

Jill: How do I do that?

Jack: By having some resolution in your own mind-- only then can you give her your blessing.

Jill: It's easier said than done.

Jack: I know. The fact that a reputable Seattle newspaper printed this story, it's kind of hard to ignore.

Jill: Exactly. That's what has me so freaked out.

Jack: Listen to me. Katherine is no dummy. Hopefully she won't make any definite wedding plans without checking this guy out sideways and upside down.

Jill: Unless she's blinded by love.

Jack: Yeah. Judging from the looks of things over there, I don't think they're holding back at all, at least not right now.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Arthur: Katherine, this is so unexpected, your change of heart.

Kay: Hardly a change of heart. I mean, do you know I didn't realize until you came back how much I missed you? I buried my feelings all those years, resigned to the fact that I would never see you again.

Arthur: And then I showed up at your door.

Kay: Oh, God, that was the happiest day of my life. For the first time in years, I felt truly alive, truly alive. Only a fool would walk away from something like that.

Arthur: Katherine, darling, are you absolutely certain?

Kay: Oh, my God, more certain of that than anything I've ever felt in my life. Arthur, I cannot wait for us to begin sharing our lives together. Please... please come home.

Arthur: No, Katherine. I think it best if I continue to stay here at the club-- that is, until our wedding.

Kay: But you are saying that we will be married.

Arthur: If that's what you want, my darling, yes, by all means... and the sooner the better.

----------------------------------------------------------

Ashley: Honey, sit down with Mommy. Come here.

Abby: Daddy, are you going somewhere?

Brad: No, sweetie.

Abby: So why do you have the suitcases out?

Ashley: We wanna talk to you about something, okay?

Abby: Okay, as long as I'm not late for school.

Ashley: All righty.

Brad: Listen, baby, uh... this is important. Your mommy and I have... we have...

Abby: You have what?

Ashley: You know how important you are to us, right? You are the most precious thing in the world to us.

Brad: What your mommy's trying to say is that we both love you very much.

Abby: I love you, too. Is that what we had to talk about?

Ashley: No. Well, it kind of is, actually. What we're trying to say is that, you know... honey, with people... things change sometimes, you know, even with people that love each other a whole lot.

Abby: I don't understand. Did I do something wrong?

Brad: No.

Ashley: No.

Brad: No, you did not do anything wrong.

Ashley: You didn't do anything wrong, honey.

Brad: Don't ever think that.

Ashley: No, um... honey, you know how, um, we have a family? You know we're a family, right? We're always gonna be a family no matter what. We're just gonna be a different kind of family. You're always gonna have a Mommy and a Daddy that love you so much.

Brad: But... we're just not going to live together anymore.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sharon: My husband is very supportive of me.

Gwen: Oh, I'm sure he is, but you have to admit the timing of this is very interesting, wouldn't you agree, Mrs. Newman?

Sharon: Um, I'm not sure what you're getting at.

Jim: Let me translate. Is this about sending your husband a message?

Sharon: A message? No, not at all.

Gwen: Then maybe this is a publicity stunt. I read your bio, and no offense, but I'm not sure what makes you qualified for this position.

Sharon: First of all, as far as I know, there has been no public announcement made about my husband's situation at Newman Enterprises, and for that reason I will not comment on that. As for what I am doing here, well, I'm here because I want to be. This has nothing to do with my husband or my family's company. I realize that reporters are trained to look for the hidden story, but you won't find one this time. And let me also say I hope it won't be long before you stop seeing me as the wife of Nicholas Newman and start seeing me as the new face of Jabot Cosmetics, because I'm very excited about what we have in store, and I know you will be, too. Now... next question?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dru: I am so anxious to get back to the apartment and get that place ready for Devon.

Neil: And quite a morning it was.

Dru: Yep. Can I tell you how proud I am, Mr. Winters?

Neil: Wait a minute. You're not mad at me for being so stubborn all these weeks and months?

Dru: Nope. In fact, I think it's made our marriage a lot stronger. We weathered a storm together.

Neil: And quite a storm it was.

Dru: Yes, yes. You know, we clash sometimes, honey, but that's okay. It just makes our marriage richer, you know.

Neil: I will remind you of that the next time we're in the middle of a fight.

Dru: Do you think Devon realizes how fortunate he is?

Neil: You mean having us for a family?

Dru: Having you as a role model. I mean, there's no telling what can happen to this kid having you as a mentor.

Neil: Well, I'll settle for him just finding his rightful, happy place in life, whatever that might be.

Dru: Baby, you're onboard.

Neil: You know, I don't think I understood just how much I cared about Devon until he ran away. And then today when I saw him acting tough, and I realized that we was just scared out of his mind, it melted my heart, you know? I couldn't let him go.

Dru: Yeah. You know, it's not all gonna be smooth sailing.

Neil: Oh, I'm aware of that. I don't expect the boy to be, you know, like a Stepford kid.

Dru: Oh, no, he's far from that. You know he has trust issues, and he's gonna be worse off than he was before when he lived with us.

Neil: Yeah, well, we will deal with that the way we deal with everything...

Dru: Right...

Both: One day at a time.

Neil: Good, no matter how long, Dru.

Dru: Right.

Neil: You know something?

Dru: Huh?

Neil: Right now I feel so good.

Dru: You should. Saved a kid's life, gave him a future.

Neil: Yeah, I just wish I could let other people know this feeling that I have inside, 'cause there so many kids out there just like Devon who need somebody to care about them.

Dru: Listen to you.

Neil: What?

Dru: You've come a long way.

Neil: You know, it just dawned on me.

Dru: What?

Neil: Lily--she's not an only child anymore. She has a brother.

Dru: Mm-hmm.

Neil: We are a family of four. You and I, we have two children to raise.

Dru: Yeah.

Neil: Come here, Mama. Give me some sugar while we still have the strength.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jack: Well, don't look now. I think your parents are headed this way.

Kay: Well, hello, you two. How are you, Jack?

Jack: I am just great, Katherine, and don't you look terrific.

Kay: Well, I ought to, yes. I've just agreed to marry this lovely gentleman.

Jill: You have?

Kay: Yes, Jill. I so hope you'll be happy for me.

Jack: Well, it looks like congratulations are in order. Judge Hendricks, I hope you know you have just snagged yourself one terrific lady.

Kay: Stop.

Arthur: Ah, believe me, Jack, no one knows that better than I do. I'm a very lucky man.

Abby: We're not going to be living together anymore? But why?

Ashley: Honey, um, sometimes when people have been together awhile, they start to have some problems.

Abby: What kind of problems?

Brad: Oh, none that you need to worry about. Its Mommy and Daddy problems.

Ashley: Yeah, just Mommy and Daddy stuff, you know, and, um, and your daddy and I have decided that it would just be best if we lived in separate places.

Abby: I don't understand.

Brad: Honey, we know it's a big shock to you, but... sometimes people are just better off living apart from each other.

Abby: You and Mommy, too?

Ashley: Yeah, honey, Daddy and me, too. Makes us sad, you know, 'cause we wish it didn't have to be this way.

Abby: Then why don't you change it?

Brad: Because we just can’t. I know you want us to stay together, honey, but it just wouldn't be good for us, and it wouldn't be good for you. This is how it has to be.

Abby: Why?

Ashley: Honey, you know you have some friends at school, right? And their parents live in different houses. And they don't love their children any less. You know that.

Abby: Which house are you going to be staying in?

Ashley: Well, guess what. I'm going to be staying with Grandpa. Isn't that neat? 'Cause I've gotta sort some things out.

Abby: Then are you coming back?

Ashley: No. I mean, you know, not to stay.

Brad: But, uh, you're gonna stay right here with me, in your own room.

Ashley: Yeah.

Brad: You don't have to go anywhere.

Abby: Am I gonna see Mommy?

Brad: Oh, yes, of course you are.

Ashley: You're gonna see me all the time. You're gonna get sick of me you're gonna see me so much, and I'm gonna call you on the phone every single day.

Abby: But you're not gonna be here.

Ashley: No, I won't be here. But it doesn't mean I'm gonna love you any less, 'cause you are my little girl, and I love you more than anything in the whole world.

Abby: When are you going?

Ashley: Well, your daddy and I thought about it and... I'm gonna go today.

Abby: You're moving to Grandpa's today?

Ashley: Yeah.

Abby: Daddy, I don't want to go to school today.

Brad: That's okay, baby, you don't have to go.

Abby: Can I go in my room now?

Ashley: Don't you think we should talk about this a little bit more?

Abby: I don't want to.

Brad: Okay, we'll talk some more later.

Ashley: Can I have a hug? I love you, baby.

Abby: I love you, too.
