Singer: There's a beautiful horizon of your arms here I can see

[Jamie whistles]

Singer: Don't you know that you've got me right where I want to be? If I don't fall tonight could I ever be more sure if I don't feel

Vicky: Mmm. That coffee smells good.

Jamie: What are you doing up so early?

Vicky: I could never get to sleep. Tell me that coffee isn't decaf.

Jamie: It's decaf. What do you mean, you never got to sleep?

Vicky: I couldn't get comfortable. Can't we have normal coffee sometimes?

Jamie: The bed was very comfortable.

Vicky: Oh.

Jamie: Here, have some milk.

Vicky: Of course you thought it was comfortable. You took up the whole bed.

Jamie: Well, you should have moved me.

Vicky: Oh, yeah, right. Honey, Arnold Schwarzenegger couldn't have moved you.

Jamie: Huh. Well, you can take a nap later.

Vicky: Yeah, well, before I take a nap, I need caffeine, coffee -- very strong, strong coffee.

Jamie: Not when you're pregnant.

Vicky: Not when I'm pregnant? Tell me, how many kids turned out normal before women knew that they couldn't have anything good while they were pregnant?

Jamie: Well, now, come on, honey. You can have a few good things.

Vicky: Hmm. Like what?

Jamie: Like this.

Vicky: Ooh -- ooh. Now, what if they discover that this isn't good for babies either?

Jamie: We'll ignore them.

Vicky: Oh, yeah?

Jamie: Mm-hmm.

Vicky: Jamie, what if somebody's watching?

Jamie: We'll ignore them, too.

Vicky: No, no, I can't, honey. I want to go home.

Jamie: What?

Vicky: This -- this place gives me the creeps. I hear weird noises at night and the bed is too small and people walk around all day.

Jamie: Well, did you expect to have a good time here?

Vicky: No, no, of course I didn't.

Jamie: Come on, now. Let's just relax and try to make the best of it. Come on, sit down. Sharlene and Josie need us now.

Vicky: Well, why? They're going to be depressed whether we're here or not.

Jamie: Well, I'm sure they feel a lot less depressed when they have family around. They just lost somebody that they cared a lot about.

Vicky: Yeah, Jason. That's another thing. Everywhere I look, I see that man's face. When is this death going to be put to rest? I mean, isn't it bad enough, the police hounding everybody all the time?

Jamie: Yeah, well, maybe they'll find something in that strongbox they took from his safe.

Vicky: Yeah, yeah, maybe.

Jamie: I can't help wondering, though. What could he have locked up in that safe that could have anything to do with his death?

Rick: What kind of man keeps a strongbox in his safe?

Courtney: A man who didn't trust anyone. Let's see -- military discharge, campaign ribbons, insurance records, letters, birth certificate, and Sharlene's divorce papers.

Rick: Regular stuff.

Courtney: Except for these bank balance sheets.

Rick: Anything there?

Courtney: Uh -- this is way out of line.

Rick: Why?

Courtney: Over the last several months, there have been some very large deposits made to his account.

Rick: What's so unusual about that?

Courtney: You can explain it?

Rick: Well, Frame Construction was finally getting cranked up, new contracts coming in, new money pouring in --

Courtney: Uh-uh, uh-uh, not pouring in this much, no.

Rick: Oh, these are some very big numbers.

Courtney: Right -- too big.

Rick: Well, let's find out where this money came from.

Courtney: I have a pretty good idea where.

Rick: Me, too.

Courtney and Rick: Blackmail.

Felicia: Hi.

Cass: Oh, honey.

Felicia: What's happening?

Cass: I wasn't here.

Felicia: Oh.

Cass: You were arrested and I wasn't even here.

Felicia: God, I thought you were going to tell me something really terrible.

Cass: When I found out that you were brought up on charges, I just couldn't believe it.

Felicia: Cass, they really do believe they have a case.

Cass: They're only going after you because you're a celebrity.

Felicia: Right.

Cass: You know that, don't you?

Felicia: Yeah.

Cass: Oh, I'm so sorry I wasn't here. Are you ok? Hmm?

Felicia: No.

Cass: No?

Felicia: No. I want you to know that Stacey and Zack were terrific.

Cass: Good, I'm glad. Damn it, I should have come home from Boston sooner.

Felicia: It was a dead end, wasn't it?

Cass: Mrs. Kramer quit her managing position at the boarding house and left town, no forwarding address. She went to some retirement home or something.

Felicia: ??

Cass: I'm going to look through every phone book in the country if Mrs. Kramer has to be somewhere. And when I do find her, she's going to tell me where Noah is.

Felicia: Cass, I keep telling you, Noah is dead. I killed him.

Cass: I did find out one other thing.

Felicia: What?

Cass: Jason Frame telephoned Mrs. Kramer the day that she disappeared.

Felicia: What?

Cass: That's what the land lady told me. Maybe Jason found out that Noah is still alive.

Felicia: Maybe Jason found out that I killed Noah. Huh. What do you suppose? That he was planning to blackmail me? Well, now, wouldn't that make a wonderful motive for the police?

Cass: Hey, are you giving up? Huh?

Felicia: I'm not sure. Maybe.

Cass: All right, I think it's time you told me the whole truth.

Mitch: What the hell are you talking about, Cass?

Felicia: The police think that I really planned to kill Jason. Now, we know that isn't true.

Cass: There's more to it than that.

[Doorbell rings]

Felicia: Who do you think that is?

Cass: That must be Sadie. I'll get it.

Felicia: Well, who's Sadie?

Cass: She's a clerk in records at the police department. She's very helpful when I want to know what the cops know. Sadie, come in. I'm glad. I was hoping it was you.

Sadie: Hi, Mr. Winthrop.

Cass: Please, please, how many times do I have to tell you? Call me Cass.

Sadie: Cass. I got your message.

Cass: I love your hair. 

Sadie: You're so bad.

Cass: I know. It's a sickness. Come in. I was just wondering if anything has come in.

Sadie: The police have found a strongbox.

Cass: Jason Frame's?

Sadie: Right. It was in a wall safe at the frame farm.

Cass: Was there anything in it?

Sadie: The regular stuff -- legal documents, personal things, bank records.

Cass: Sadie, this is great news! I'm very grateful to you. This could be a big help to me.

Sadie: Anytime, Cass.

Cass: Listen, we're still on for that lunch, aren't we? I want you to pick out a nice restaurant, and I'll tell you what day is good for me.

Sadie: There's this new place, Le Boire De Chevalier, over on park?

Cass: Yeah? Yeah?

Sadie: It costs a fortune.

Cass: Money is no object. You're on. Thanks again, Sadie.

Sadie: Sure.

Cass: Ok? Take care. Bye.

Felicia: You are so loathsome.

Cass: What?

Felicia: I mean, you lead her on so she'll give you information?

Cass: What? Sadie knows what's going on.

Felicia: Why is she doing this?

Cass: I'd really rather not go into --

Felicia: Honey, why?

Cass: Her kid brother got into a jam, ok, and she doesn't have any money, so I'm representing him and I'm waiving my fee, all right?

Felicia: Well, I figured as much.

Cass: Are you happy?

Felicia: Yes, I'm happy.

Cass: Did you hear what she said?

Felicia: Yes.

Mitch: About the strongbox?

Cass: Full of personal papers?

Felicia: So?

Cass: So there could be something in there that could help us.

Felicia: Help us how?

Cass: By getting evidence that will point this case in a different direction, away from you.

Vicky: Honey, please try to understand.

Jamie: Well, I mean, if you can't sleep --

Vicky: No, I can't even relax. It's not your family. Believe me, your family is wonderful, but I don't fit in here.

Jamie: No, that's not true. You do, too.

Vicky: It's how I feel, Jamie.

Jamie: Well -- well, I mean, you have to get your rest.

Vicky: So I don't have to stay?

Jamie: No, you don't have to stay.

Vicky: Oh --

Jamie: But after your meeting with Stacey, why don't you just go back to the loft?

Vicky: You're wonderful. You're wonderful. I love you, I love you.

Jamie: But I think I should stay out here with Sharlene and Josie.

Vicky: You're not going to come with me?

Jamie: Well, just for another couple of days, until they get a little more settled.

Vicky: Well --

Jamie: Now, if you get lonely, you can stay with your folks.

Vicky: No, Jamie, I lived alone, remember? What happens if I go into labor?

Jamie: Now, you're not dilated yet, are you?

Vicky: No, no.

Jamie: And Dr. Peterson said the baby will probably be late, right?

Vicky: Yeah.

Jamie: I'm not worried, then.

Vicky: Well, great, oh, great you're not worried.

Sharlene: Morning.

Vicky: Oh, hi. I didn't hear you come in.

Sharlene: Sorry. I didn't mean scare you.

Vicky: No, no, you didn't. 

Jamie: Are you ok?

Vicky: Yeah, yeah. I'm just cranky, that's all.

Sharlene: Cranky, you know, I was wreck right before Josie was born. The slightest little noise

Jamie: Hey, Sharlene --

Sharlene: Yeah.

Jamie: How about some breakfast? I make great toast.

Vicky: If you don't burn it.

Sharlene: I'd love some. I didn't get a chance to eat before I left.

Jamie: Where were you?

Sharlene: I was looking for a job.

Jamie: Sharlene --

Sharlene: Jamie, I'm going to have to get some work.

Jamie: I don't think you should be worrying about that right now.

Sharlene: I'll have to have some money if I want to hang on to this farm.

Jamie: Now, listen, Jason probably left some insurance somewhere. And if you need help, I'd like to help out.

Sharlene: Oh, no, you won't. No, you won't. I will take care of things on my own. Don't care if I have to work in a factory or not. I'll take care of it myself.

Rick: Jason certainly didn't have any financial problems.

Courtney: Yeah, in spite of the troubles with Vicky's lawsuit.

Rick: Anything else there that ties in?

Courtney: Well, we got stacks of letters from his brother Willis, military records, and all these others, probably all unrelated, but we've still got to check it out.

Rick: Yeah, well, let's subpoena his bank records and trace those deposits.

Courtney: That's a lot of cash.

Rick: Where do you think it came from? Felicia?

Courtney: Well, it'd sure make it a lot neater if it did.

Rick: You don't think so, do you?

Courtney: No, I don't. I mean, Jason was into all kinds of shady deals. And the more I go deeper into this case, the more I believe all roads do not lead to Felicia Gallant. I think it's time for us to find out who else wanted Jason silenced.


Felicia: I couldn't have struggled with Jason.

Cass: Why not?

Felicia: Because I wasn't anywhere near him, that's why.

Cass: Come on. There were scratches and bruises on his body. I was threatened by the strongman, right, and I saw his image in the mirrors --

Cass: Yeah?

Felicia: And I shot at that image, and then Jason -- I don't know -somehow he got in the way. I don't know how.

Mitch: We'll get another lawyer.

Cass: Just calm down, Mitch.

Mitch: Why should I calm down?

Cass: Do you actually think the D.A. Is going to just stand there, nodding approval, while Felicia tells her story?

Felicia: No, he isn't. I know he isn't. I know he's right.

Cass: You got listen to how the story sounds Felicia.

Mitch: And, what are you saying? Her story does add up.

Cass: "Add up"? Please, there are holes in it you can drive a convoy through.

Felicia: I was so confused. You understand that I was confused, I didn't know what was happening, and I saw all those damn mirrors. And then I -- I fainted.

Cass: Just as long as you're clear on what you do know.

Mitch: Look, Cass, this strong - box is there any chance of there being some sort of evidence in there? Is there any way that that can be of some help?

Cass: I sure as hell hope so.

Mitch: There's no way that Jason has anything on her. There's nothing to have.

Felicia: We hope.

Cass: Look, there's something else.

Felicia: What?

Cass: Stacey found a man who may be able to help.

Felicia: What man?

Cass: I don't know any details, so there's no point in getting our hopes up until Stacey fills me in, but --

Felicia: You think it might be the strongman? Do you?

Cass: I'm sorry I even brought it up, really. Let's just go on with your story, ok? It's a waste of time to speculate.

Felicia: Ok. Let's go on.

Cass: Tell me about your relationship with Jason Frame.

Felicia: I -- I didn't have a relationship with Jason Frame. I mean, he worked here. He was doing renovations on the apartment. We talked about that. That was about the extent of it.

Cass: Did he ever threaten you?

Felicia: No.

Cass: Get friendly?

Mitch: Cass, I can see that you're playing prosecutor, but what are you getting at?

Cass: Did he ever come on to you?

Felicia: Yes, but -- he was a flirt. He -- he was all talk. It was nothing that I couldn't handle.

Cass: You ever alone with him?

Felicia: Yes.

Cass: How often?

Felicia: Very often. Mitch was away a lot.

Cass: Great. The D.A.'s going to love that.

Mitch: Why?

Felicia: Rick and Courtney have already mentioned that, Mitch.

Cass: They're trying to establish that Jason was a threat to Felicia and that he was either blackmailing her or trying to push her into an affair with him and she reacted by shooting him.

Felicia: No. I keep telling everybody, it was the strongman. I never meant to kill Jason. For heaven's sake, he's the one that gave me the gun. He knew somebody was following me. He knew it.

Cass: When you told him about this, was he sympathetic?

Felicia: Very.

Mitch: Cass, come on. What are you getting at?

Cass: Is it possible that Jason was that somebody?

Felicia: No.

Cass: Was he trying to gaslight you?

Felicia: No, no, no. I don't know. I -- no, I -- God, I don't know what's happening.

Mitch: Hey, it's ok. You're doing fine. It's ok. Ok.

Felicia: You know what's really funny about all of this? The rags-to-riches story line is due out in "Brava." It's great timing, isn't it? "The Felicia Gallant success story" -- and I'm charged with murder. Some success,

John: Whew. Wow, is it cold out there. Ooh, something smells good.

Sharlene: Shouldn't you be at work?

John: Well, I wanted to take care of a few things around here first. What is that?

Sharlene: That's split pea with ham. You're doing too much.

John: It's ok. I can handle it. Really, I can, especially if you give me a little of that split pea and ham.

Sharlene: How are you going to keep that company running if you are never there to run it?

John: It's more important that I be here, I think.

Sharlene: Here you go.

John: Thanks.

Sharlene: You're welcome.

John: So, tell me about your day.

Sharlene: Well, it's been fine.

John: What'd you do?

Sharlene: Nothing much.

John: What about this morning?

Sharlene: This morning?

John: When you went looking for work?

Sharlene: Oh, that, huh?

John: Yeah, that. Why didn't you tell me, Sharlene?

Sharlene: Because I wasn't sure what was going to happen.

John: And what did happen?

Sharlene: Nothing.

Sharlene: I went to an employment agency. My 19-year-old employment counselor thinks that I'm going to be hard to place. I didn't know how to use a word processor.

John: Sharlene, why don't you let me help you financially?

Sharlene: No.

John: Why not?

Sharlene: I won't hear of it.

John: Look, I'm doing all right now. I've got a little money coming in from the spa contract and the renovations at Felicia's and --

Sharlene: I will not take that woman's money.

John: Look, I only meant --

Sharlene: John, she killed my brother.

John: Don't you think that you're twisting this around just a --

Sharlene: John, I don't need your help. I don't need your help. I don't need anybody's help. I will take care of my daughter and me. I always have. I always will. Nothing's going to change that.

[phone rings]

Stacey: Hello. Stacey Winthrop. No, this is not Phoebe Finsterfalt. Well, if I was Phoebe Finsterfalt, why  would I be answering the phone "Stacey Winthrop," huh? Zack, is Cass coming in this morning?

Zack: I have no idea. We haven't spoken since he got back.

Stacey: Oh, well, I talked to him yesterday.

Zack: Yeah? So you gave him the lowdown on Felicia, huh?

Stacey: He went crazy.

Zack: Yeah, well, I figured he would. I mean, she's his friend, and she's in big trouble.

Stacey: So you don't think her story holds up?

Zack: She's not in a good state of mind, Stacey.

Stacey: Yeah, I know.

Zack: Yeah. I'm afraid she'd crumble under cross-examination, say whatever they wanted her to.

Stacey: Well, we can't let that happen.

Zack: Then we'd better think of something quick.

Stacey: I may have something.

Zack: Oh, really?

Stacey: Yeah.

Zack: You want to tell me about it?

Stacey: Well, I will, but let's wait until Cass gets here, and then I can fill both of you in at the same time.

Zack: Yeah. You think it's a real lead, though?

Stacey: It's a good one. I don't know. It might be the best we're going to get.

Zack: Well, we better hope it leads to something. If it doesn't, Felicia's looking at a conviction.

Stacey: No, Cass won't let that happen. I know it.

John: Shalene! You and that damn pride of yours.

Sharlene: John, I know what --

John: Well, I'm glad to hear that you don't need me.

Sharlene: John, I do need you.

john: Well then --

Sharlene: But I won't take your money.

John: Why not?

Sharlene: Because I don't want to end up like Jason!

John: Oh, Sharlene, you can't compare yourself to Jason.

Sharlene: John, my brother's life was spent looking for a free ride. He wanted shortcuts. It. I will not do that. I don't care what I have to do to survive. I will never take anything from anybody.

John: Look, what do I have to do to get through to you?

Sharlene: I have made some big mistakes. I can't afford too many more.

John: Oh, Sharlene, come on. What mistakes?

Sharlene: We all have to learn to live with ourselves, John. You of all people should understand that.

Cass: You didn't have any words with Jason before the shooting?

Felicia: No, no. No --

Cass: Are you absolutely sure?

Felicia: No -- I mean, yes --

Cass: Well, which is it? Come on. Yes? No? No?

Felicia: No. No!

Mitch: No! The answer is no. She said no. She didn't have words with him. If she did, she would have said so.

Cass: But that's the whole point, Mitch.

Mitch: What?

Cass: Her mind has been playing tricks on her all this time.

Mitch: Well, you're confusing her.

Cass: I am not! You -- you've got to be absolutely sure.

Felicia: What do you mean?

Cass: Is it possible that you could have forgotten or blocked out an argument with Jason?

Felicia: I -- I don't know --

Cass: Come on, is it possible? Think. Think hard.

Felicia: I'm trying to think!

Cass: Is there anything that you could have left out? Anything at all?

Felicia: No! I told you everything I know about that night. I don't remember seeing Jason, not at all, not until he was lying there.

Mitch: Ok, ok. Ok, ok, ok. That's it. That is it. That is enough upset for the day.

Cass: Hey, hey, I love her. If you think this was rough, wait until she goes up against somebody who doesn't give a damn about her.

Mitch: Cass, will you just leave?

Cass: You're not doing her any favors, Mitch. Honey, you have to help me. You have to help me prove your innocence.

Felicia: I can't help him. There's nothing else that I know.

Mitch: Honey, it's ok. You're doing fine.

Felicia: I'm going to go to prison, aren't I?

Zack: Vicky, I'm glad you got over here so fast. I want to get this lawsuit off the books, ok?

Vicky: Oh, good. No problem.

Stacey: Hey, how's Jamie doing?

Vicky: He's fine.

Stacey: Good.

Vicky: He's staying at the Frames'. He's helping Sharlene and Josie.

Stacey: Oh. They must be having a pretty tough time, huh?

Vicky: Yea he's really trying to help them actually, but it's just really difficult. And all of a sudden, I remembered all the things I need to buy for the baby. You know, I bought 15 t-shirts and all new --

Stacey: Oh, the motherly instinct taking over? Yeah, well, it happens.

Vicky: Yeah. Zack, well, if you've got those ready, I'd love to sign the papers because I'm tired and I want to get it over with.

Zack: Stacey, when Cass gets back, I'll ask him to stay here.

Stacey: Ok.

Zack: Ok? I won't be long. Vicky, good to see you.

Vicky: Yeah, you -- thanks, Zack.

Zack: Yeah.

Stacey: Hey, when I saw Jamie the other day, he looked so happy. He was like -- I don't know -- effervescent with that

Vicky: Yeah, the craziness with Jason has -- has kind of put a damper on things, but --

Stacey: Yeah, I imagine it would.

Vicky: But we're hoping that the baby is going to be a boy?

Stacey: You know that?

Vicky: No, we don't.

Stacey: Did you know, when he and I were going out -- well, anyway, that's a whole other story.

Vicky: Yeah, Jamie told me. You were carrying somebody else's baby?

Stacey: Yeah. It was a pretty rough time for Jamie, to say the least, and -- well, you know, heck, it all worked out for the better. Anyway, I'm sure he will make a wonderful father.

Vicky: Oh I know he will.

Jamie: Hello ladies.

Stacey: Hey, we were just talking about you and your baby-to-be.

Jamie: Any day now. 

Stacey: Any day? Really?

Jamie: Yeah. Any day.

Vicky: Jamie, what are you doing here?

Jamie: Well, I was hoping to take you to lunch.

Vicky: Oh, well, you're so sweet.

Jamie: Yeah well, I thought since we can't see each other tonight, then we could have a long lunch together. What do you say?

Vicky: Oh, honey, I would love to, but, actually, I'm kind of tired, and I would love to just go home and climb into bed all day.

Jamie: Well, you're feeling all right, aren't you?

Vicky: Oh, I'm fine, I'm fine. I'm just a little tired, that's all.

Jamie: Would you like me to drive you home?

Vicky: No. I have my car, thank you. I just need to take a little nap.

Stacey: Vicky --

Vicky: Yes.

Stacey: Sign four places and you're out of here.

Vicky: Ok. Sure thing.

Stacey: Here, here, here, and here.

Vicky: Ok. And ok. Thanks. Ok, hon.

Jamie: Yeah. Listen, you and the baby get a nice long rest and just take the phone off the hook, ok?

Vicky: Good idea. Love you. Bye.

Jamie: I love you, too. Bye-bye.

Vicky: Thanks, Stacey.

Stacey: Oh, hope to see you soon.

Vicky: Yeah.

Stacey: You look so happy, Jamie. It must be Vicky.

Jamie: Well, you know, it wasn't what you'd call smooth but we're doing good.

Stacey: Well, good. I'm really glad for you.

Jamie: Thank you. Now, what about you? How do you like working with Cass and Zack?

Stacey: Oh. It was such a rough start, I can't even tell you.

Jamie: I can imagine, with defending Felicia.

Stacey: Nothing fits, absolutely nothing.

Jamie: You know, the police have been out to the farm quite a bit.

Stacey: They have? Really?

Jamie: Yeah, and all Sharlene wants to do is forget out this whole thing.

Stacey: I'm sure.

Jamie: Yeah, yeah. What about things at your end? I mean, any new ideas, any new leads?

Stacey: I have a couple of leads, one of which I'm going to follow up on today. I got to head over to Marquette Hill, though.

Jamie: Marquette Hill?

Stacey: Mm-hmm.

Jamie: Marquette Hill? That's not exactly your silk-stocking district, my dear.

Stacey: Oh, I know. It's more like switchblades and brass knuckles, but, remember, I'm a very tough girl.

Jamie: Yeah, well, ok. Listen, I'll go with you.

Stacey: You what?

Jamie: Stacey, listen, I was just turned down for lunch. I have nothing to do. I'm free as a bird.

Stacey: I appreciate the offer, thank you very much, but I can take care of myself.

Jamie: Stacey, listen, Mike Tyson you're not. I used to take care of you all the time, remember?

Stacey: Well, you know, I have sort of learned to take care of myself in the last couple of years.

Jamie: Yeah, well, there's a difference between that and taking unnecessary risks.

Stacey: Always so sensible.

Jamie: Then listen to me.

Stacey: I'll be fine. Don't worry, ok?

Jamie: You go to Marquette Hill, anything can happen -- all of which would be bad.

Stacey: I will be ok. Like I said, don't worry.

Sharlene: Yes, I can type, but I thought this required answering phones oh. I see.

John: Well I'll see you there. I've got to go.

Sharlene: Well you know, I can't use a computer, I don't know how to, but I'm very anxious to learn. I see. All right, well, thank you, anyway.

John: I'll call you later.

Sharlene: Don't be angry.

John: Sharlene, you have to do what you think is right.

Sharlene: I just hope you understand.

[Knock on door]

Felicia: Sharlene, I -- I thought about phoning first, but then I thought, well, this way would be better.

Sharlene: Because you know I'd tell you not to come.

Felicia: I'm not really sure what your reaction would be. I -- I'm still not.

Sharlene: What do you want, Felicia?

Felicia: Just to talk. I wanted to go to Jason's funeral, but I did think better of it.

Sharlene: No, you didn't belong there.

Felicia: Sharlene, I just wanted you to know how really sorry I am about everything. You and Josie have lost someone very close to you. That was so unexpected. I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you in the hope that maybe --

Sharlene: What? That we could be friends again?

Felicia: I guess that's pretty foolish of me to think that could ever happen.

Sharlene: Felicia, forgive me, please forgive me, but you're talking as if he dropped dead in the street or something. It was you.

Felicia: Please forgive me.

Sharlene: No, I can't.

Vicky: Dr. Peterson, thank you for seeing me on such short notice. I know how busy you are.

Dr. Peterson: You said it was important.

Vicky: Actually, it's urgent.

Dr. Peterson: Are you feeling all right?

Vicky: Yes.

Dr. Peterson: No contractions or anything?

Vicky: No, Dr. Peterson, what I have to talk to you about is very personal, and I need to know it won't go outside of this room.

Dr. Peterson: Of course. Whatever you tell me will be strictly confidential.

Vicky: I need to make sure that Jamie is the father of my baby. I want you to do a paternity test.

[Stacey whistles]

Stacey: Hey!

Man: Ooh!

Stacey: Oh!

Man: What's going on here?

Stacey: Oh, nothing. Hi. Hello.

Man: Do I know you?

Stacey: No, no. I -- I'm an attorney, and I'm looking for a man. Maybe you've seen him.

Man: Oh, lot of men around here. Lot of men -- crackpots, most of them.

Stacey: Yeah. Well, listen, this is a big guy -- a real big guy, and he was wearing an overcoat with a cap on.

Man: That could fit a lot of guys around here.

Stacey: This is important, though. Can you please help me with this?

Man: Listen, you best get out of here. You best get out of here right now. It's dangerous. Dangerous.

Stacey: Yeah.

Stacey: Yeah, I'm looking for a man, huh?

[Church bells toll]

Stacey: I read the paper every day. That's it.

Stacey: Hi, yeah. I want to place an ad in your personals. The name is Stacey Winthrop, and I want to charge to Winthrop & Edwards. Edwards. I want the ad to read "female lawyer seeks strongman. Trust me. Call 555-7123." Yeah. No, that's it. Ok, thanks a lot. Bye-bye.

Felicia: I -- I know it's pretty stupid of me to ask you to forgive me.

Sharlene: Felicia, my brother is dead because of you.

Felicia: I know that. If I could convince you that it was an accident. I swear to God it was an accident. I was very confused that night. I don't have any idea what happened, really.

Sharlene: But it did happen.

Felicia: But I never meant to hurt Jason. It was an accident. I don't care what the newspapers keep saying. It was.

Sharlene: My brother is gone, Felicia! And nothing you can say can bring him back to me! Nothing you can say can make it any easier!

Felicia: I know

Sharlene: He's all we had, Josie and me.

Felicia: I know.

Sharlene: Jason -- he may not have been much, Felicia, but he was good to me, and I loved him.

Felicia: I know you did.

Sharlene: And now his life is over. His life is over. It's gone, and it's because of you.

Cass: There could be real evidence.

Zack: Do you think Sadie's information is right --

Cass: She's never failed me yet.

Zack: You know, Cass, I hate to be a downer, but this doesn't sound like it will be anything anything to get Felicia off. Zack: Cass, you're a terrific lawyer, but you've been known to bend the rules a little.

Cass: Bend, not break.

Zack: I mean, if anything is thrown out as inadmissible evidence because the rules were bent --

Cass: Nothing will be, I promise you.

Zack: If it is, Felicia's going to be up to her you-know-what in trouble.

Stacey: Cass, you remember the guy we talked about the other day. I think he's the strongman.

Cass: Are you serious?

Stacey: Oh, sorry --

Cass: That's all right.

Stacey: Not 100% sure, but when he talked about Felicia, he called her Fanny.

Cass: Does he have a scar?

Stacey: Well, I couldn't tell because -- well, it was sort of weird. He covered the side of his face.

Zack: So what happened?

Stacey: So he spots a cop and he thinks that I set him up and he takes off. I went back looking for him again today.

Cass: But no luck?

Stacey: Right but I am trying something, and if it works, then we should be getting a phone call very shortly, maybe even tomorrow.

Cass: He has to call. He has to call!

Stacey: The good news?

Cass: Yeah?

Stacey: He mentioned dun. He mentions it means -- it must mean something, I don't know what.

Cass: Right! You're right! And if he wants to talk to us, he has to call.

Stacey: Right.

Cass: So he'll call! All right! We're getting somewhere now. We're starting to cook!

Dr. Peterson: You're not sure that Jamie is the father?

Vicky: I'm almost sure.

Dr. Peterson: "Almost"?

Vicky: There was one night, and that's why I need proof.

Dr. Peterson: Does your husband know about this one night?

Vicky: Oh, God, no, of course he doesn't know about this.

Dr. Peterson: I see.

Vicky: Well, is there something you can do?

Dr. Peterson: I wish there was, Vicky.

Vicky: What do you mean, you wish there was? You have to do something!

Dr. Peterson: There is really nothing I can do.

Vicky: Well, what about a paternity test?

Dr. Peterson: It's not that simple.

Vicky: I don't care. I'll do anything.

Dr. Peterson: Will you jeopardize the life of your child?

Vicky: What do you mean by that?

Dr. Peterson: That test involves drawing blood out of the fetus while it's in utero. I know I won't.

Vicky: I never thought of it being dangerous before.

Dr. Peterson: Think about this, too -- what if you found out that the baby was not your husband's? Would you tell him?

Vicky: I just want to prove that this baby is Jamie's!

Dr. Peterson: And if it isn't?

Vicky: I don't know. I don't know. I -- I guess I haven't thought one way or the other, I --

Dr. Peterson: You could go into early labor, shorten the baby's natural time in the womb. It could make for a very complicated delivery.

Vicky: And you won't do it?

Dr. Peterson: I can't let you take that risk with your child. It would be unethical. I'm sorry, Vicky.

Felicia: I just hope that someday you'll understand why I came here.

Sharlene: I understand now. You wanted me to ease your guilt.

Felicia: You're right. I'm -- I'm sure that's part of it, yes.

Sharlene: I'm sorry. I haven't the capacity.

Felicia: Sharlene, I just -- I just wanted you to know how sorry I am from my heart. I hope you know that if there's anything at all that I can do --

Sharlene: What are you saying? After everything that's happened, do you think that I could take money from you? What kind of person do you think I am?

Felicia: I shouldn't have come here.

Sharlene: No, please go!

Felicia: I am sorry.

John: Here you go.

Man: Oh. Look, I don't think I'm going to be able to get to this today.

John: Jerry, you owe me, and you know you do. Now, I want that stuff done today.

Jerry: Look, I'll do my best.

John: You'll do better than that. All right, look. Here. That might help, huh?

Jerry: Yeah. It'll help.

John: Jerry, I want it done yesterday.

Cass: All right. The police are still investigating, right? Now, that leads me to believe that they are not totally sold on the idea that Felicia did it intentionally.

Zack: Well, they're close to being sold, that's for sure.

Cass: Motive. That's what they're missing -- a motive. Felicia is not a desperate woman. If she was really having problems with Jason, she would have come to one of us, right?

Stacey: That's right, yeah!

Cass: And the cops know that, too.

Zack: Well, what are you trying to say, Cass?

Cass: No motive! That's what we push, that and the theory that somebody else could have killed Jason Frame.

Stacey: Somebody else? What, are you nuts?

Cass: No, I'm not nuts. There are a lot of people in this town that had a very strong dislike for Jason Frame.

Zack :Who?

Cass: Exactly. Who?
