Jackie reveals that yes, she slept with Captain Kramer. And Captain May and two others. He mocks no first mates for her, only Captains. She states maybe she was just lonely. He reminds her they had each other; at least they did until then. She admits there are grown up children that their mothers can say I did the best I could. Shes not sure she can say that to him. She tells him that she was a very sheltered, spoiled English girl who was just never taught anything useful except presenting herself and she hated that. So she rebelled and married a man she knew her parents would disapprove of. They did and they disowned her. Then when Frank died, she was alone but with the only good thing in her whole life she was with Nick. And with absolutely no idea how to get on in this world. He taunts so she proceeded to present herself to Kramer? She admits it wasnt much different than when she was married. At least with Kramer there was food on the table, Nick had new shoes .and yes she slept with Kramer and the others ..she did it for the money.
Taylor goes ballistic that Stephanie is standing there and has been eavesdropping. Stephanie is giddy she always knew Jackie was a tramp, but Jacqueline Payne was turning tricks for the Navy, the whole Navy? Taylor scampers to close the door. She reminds her she was recording confidential patients notes. Stephanies mouth is hanging open. She admits she didnt mean to listen. She was just standing there; this must be her lucky day. She chuckles, Taylor said shed find a way to get the company back, and now she has!
Nick confesses that he used to have this fantasy. That hed bring Kramer home and his mother would like him and theyd get married and hed have a dad. She said she had that fantasy too. And Jerry called her elegant and he meant it, just not in the same way. And she recalls the first night, how it all started ..when hed pushed money into her hands. Thats when she knew just how elegant she was.
Stephanie points her finger and mocks that they blackmailed them. Smugly she says, and you know what I say? Whats good for the goose is good for the gander. Whoo-hoo. Oh Nick will do anything to keep that five letter word out of the newspaper over that picture of Mummy! Taylor objects and says no, she heard nothing. She wasnt even here! Stephanie asks whose side is she on? And what point was the exercise anyway? She points out that Taylor said if she had Nick in therapy, she could get him to sell them back the company. Taylor denies that .what she did say was that she could perhaps get him to see that payback was not the proper way to react and the company would mean nothing to him if he could figure out his past. Stephanie says fine, but she doesnt understand Taylor. Taylor asks if she understands this she could lose her license? Stephanie utters that Taylor didnt call her up and betray some confidence. She just accidentally walked in when Taylor was recording the notes. And she will say that if it comes to that. Taylor rails that it wont come to that as she is NOT saying a WORD!
Jackie reveals he didnt want to take the money. She wanted to give it back until Kramer told her to go ahead, buy something for the boy. It didnt seem so wrong so she took it. He questions how she could have done it the second time. She offers excuses of recessive times, the gas rationing and he shouts that he would have lived with her on the streets, ate in soup kitchens, lived in the basement of churches. What about unemployment or welfare? Thats what pride is. When she says she couldnt do that to him, he barks that she couldnt do that to HER! The spoiled English woman thats what she couldnt sacrifice. So she let Kramer come around any old time he wanted to. She admits that hes right. It seemed just like a transaction until finally she couldnt stand it or open a door without drinking. And she remembers one night when she got all ready, put Nick to bed and the doorbell rang, and it wasnt Jerry. It was Captain May and hed said Kramer told him to bring her these yellow daisies, and hed brought something else for the boy.
Nick asks, Kramer pimped you? Why didnt she slam the door in his face? She replies because she was already lost. And afterwards, when she counted the money, she asked herself if she was worth that much? He asks what was HE worth? And dont tell him she did it for him as he wont accept that. You didnt sell yourself, you sold ME.
Taylor asks Stephanie how would she feel if someone broke into her office and stole her files? Stephanie puffs theyd have nothing to gain. This IS different. This is an eye for an eye. Taylor refutes that, this is wrong. Stephanie refers to them as Nick and the whore and they did wrong. They stole the company and she is shocked that Taylor doesnt see that. Taylor remarks that shed like to know what happened to the new and improved Stephanie? Kinder, wiser and more sensitive .what happened to that? Stephanie snorts, alright, Ill work extra hard to take care of the orphans now tell me, who is Captain Kramer? Taylor is beside herself that Stephanie would expect her to discuss that with her. And shes not going to discuss this with anybody else. She tells Stephanie that she has a right to demand her silence. She has taken her back as a friend and is part of the family again, but one word and she swears she will not do another thing to help her with the company. And any relationship you and I ever had is over!
Nick says he doesnt want to discuss this any more. He was the only twelve year old in school who knew what the word whore meant. She reveals she had hoped hed never find out. She thought she had taken every precaution. He says he knows she loved him, but all those men came first. And thats what her love meant to him. All that love and attention from her was gone so he left. She moans that she didnt want him to leave .and she had to rebuild herself and she did. She threw herself into a crappy job, stopped drinking, changed her phone number and moved away so Jerry and the others couldnt find her. She got back a bit of self-respect. And she doesnt expect him to forgive her. He tells her this isnt a matter of forgiveness. Its about him seeing her as she really is. And he does. With tears in her eyes, she laments that she cant do this any more tonight and turns to leave. He asks if she remembers what he said the first time he shipped out? Slowly she turns and says yeah, hed said hed always love her and if she ever needed anything, hed be there for her. He offers he made that promise to someone who doesnt now exist. She exits without a backward glance.
Nick is shuffling Navy papers when Taylor comes aboard. She asks how he is and wants to caution him about engaging his mother on what they talked about. He says too late, she just left. And what shed said before about his strict code of conduct, she was right. He smirks that he is not sure this is working for him. They can talk until they are blue in the face and the fact remains he is just a man who has no children, no lover, no parents .Im a stray heap of DNA. But one thing I got Ive got my PRIDE.
Jackie comes bounding into Taylors office. Stephanie jumps up and wonders if she is there for therapy? She says no, she just wants to see Taylor. Stephanie tells her she is just waiting for Thorne; Taylor is on an errand. But she regales in the fact that Jackie looks like she has had a HORRIBLE day. And then she offers her a JOHN down the hall if she needs to freshen up. Then she smarts that she bets Jackie is there to learn the LAY of the land. But she knows she is not going to tell her about Nicks therapy. Jackie says Taylor owes her an explanation and she can tell her that. Stephanie chides that according to Jackie, everyone OWES her something. Why should the lovely Jacqueline not just be able to LIE back and collect? Jackie tells her to stop needling her. Stephanie lost her company because she deserved to. Stephanie extols she thought she lost it because of Jackies consummate performance as a victim. What she really deserved is just the clap oh, a clap-clap. Seriously, Jackie asks her what has she lost a building, a label? ..some people have a lot more important things at stake than that. Stephanie looks her in the eye and states, hard times are acoming, Missy. You may be selling, but nobody is going to be buying at these prices.
Nick throws down the papers and tells Taylor at least his mother didnt lie. He pours himself a stiff drink. Taylor asks what did his mother say? He offers that she said she did it for him. She tells him he may find that unacceptable, but that doesnt mean that it isnt true. And he was a child so it wasnt his job to rescue her from the bad choices she made. He wonders how she can spend every minute of every day trying to make peoples lives a little better but making no difference at all? He asks why is she here? Simply, she says she didnt like the way he looked when she left. She thought he might need her. He retorts for what? If she wants to rescue him, then shes too late for that.
He gives a long pause, then gulps and tells her she better get out of there. But, she doesnt. She walks even closer. He tells her he means it. She turns him around and looks deeply into his eyes and soul. He softly whispers that he wants her to go. She puts her hands around the back of his neck and hugs him to her. He hangs on like a drowning man and breaks down and weeps.
