[Hip-hop plays]

Reuben: I am starving. What is in here? Let's see. Oh, man, what is this? Leftover sushi? Got some bread in here, some mayonnaise. What's this in here? Yeah. This will work.

Singer: I remember one year my mom took me school shopping it was me, my brother my mom, oh, my pop and my little sister all hopped in the car

Reuben: Yeah. Yeah, boy.

Singer: My mom started bugging with the clothes she chose

[Reuben imitates beat box]

Reuben: She said "what's wrong? This shirt costs $20" I said, "mom, this shirt is plaid with a butterfly collar" the next half-hour was the same old thing my mother buying me clothes from 1963 and then she lost her mind and did the ultimate I asked her for Adidas and she bought me zips I said, "mom, what are you doing?"

[Music stops]

Reuben: What you doing, man? I was into that.

Zack: This used to be an office.

Reuben: Don't you have enough cases to get on without getting on mine? Ok. I'll clean it, all right?

Zack: It's not just this place, Reuben. It's your whole act, starting now.

Rachel: Thank you for coming over, Cass.

Cass: Sure.

Rachel: I know you have your hands full.

Cass: Well, I canít stay long, but you said it was important.

Rachel: How's Felicia?

Cass: She's scared, depressed. This murder charge has really knocked the wind out of her.

Rachel: Well, I wonít keep you very long. I think I found something that no one else is supposed to see.

Cass: Something to do with Feliciaís case?

Rachel: I don't know, but it has to do with Jason and Iris.

Iris: Amanda, you look wonderful. Come on in.

Amanda: Thank you.

Iris: Here, let me take your coat. I'm so delighted you made an appointment to see me.

Amanda: Well, it seemed to be the only way that I'd be able to talk to you.

Iris: Oh, I'm sorry. Yes, I haven't had time for anything except damage control since the shooting. You know, it was bad enough that Jason Frame was shot at a "Brava" party, but that Felicia was involved --

Amanda: The last thing that I want to talk about is Jason Frame, Iris.

Iris: Oh, well, certainly. What do you want to talk about, the video match story? Oh, listen, you know what, I just remembered -- you'll have to make about a million changes --

Amanda: I want to know why you lied to Evan.

Iris: What?

Amanda: You told him that my mother murdered Janice Frame in cold blood. I want to know why.

Reuben: Ok, professor, start your lecture, man.

Zack: We live together, we work together. There has to be some ground rules, both here and where we live. Start --

Reuben: Starting with what?

Zack: What is this stuff still doing here? This should've been at the courthouse two hours ago!

Reuben: Don't I get a lunch break, man?

Zack: Later! Go, now!

Reuben: Oh, you supposed to be my keeper or something, man?

Zack: Look, get these downtown! They're late!

Reuben: You know, I didnít come down here to be your 24-hour service messenger.

Zack: You didnít come down here at all. A judge sent you, remember?

Reuben: How could I forget it?

Zack: And come right back. We have to finish.

Reuben: Finish what?

Zack: Talking about this situation. My place? You left it a mess this morning.

Reuben: Oh, am I supposed to be your maid, too?

Zack: No, and I'm not supposed to be yours, but I'm picking up your wet towels and cleaning up spilled coffee!

Reuben: Are you mad at me?

Zack: Oh, you're very observant!

Reuben: I think something was good happening, man.

Zack: Hey, it's got to get a hell of a lot better!

Reuben: Yeah. Yeah, you know something? Maybe working with you and living with you ain't so good, either. Whoa. Hello.

Julie Ann: Hi.

Reuben: You -- you are beautiful. How you doing? My name is -- my name is Reuben Lawrence.

Julie Ann: Julie Ann.

Reuben: Um, do you have a minute?

Julie Ann: No.

Reuben: Well, maybe you could make one.

Julie Ann: I'm here to see my brother.

Reuben: You guys grew up together?

Julie Ann: Sure did.

Reuben: Well, baby, you've got my sympathies.

Zack: Goodbye, Reuben!

Reuben: Um, it was -- it was really nice meeting you.

Julie Ann: Yeah, it was nice meeting you.

Zack: Well, this must be an important visit for it to bring you all the way from "Brava" in the middle of the afternoon.

Julie Ann: It is. I need to talk to you. Do you have a minute?

Zack: Sure, come on.

Julie Ann: It's about Rick.

Art: Of course, I was shocked when I read about Mr. Frame's unhappy end.

Courtney: We understand you had business dealings with him during the week he died.

Art: We discussed a loan.

Courtney: How much did Mr. Frame request?

Art: I'm not at liberty to disclose the amount.

Rick: Well, we want to see his records.

Art: Sorry, those records are confidential.

Courtney: This grants us access, Mr. Brigham. It's a warrant.

Art: So it is. All right. He wanted $250,000 to save his farm, but he never got beyond the preliminary stages.

Rick: We want to see his records.

Art: I will show you all we have.

Courtney: Thank you. This is a long shot, Rick.

Rick: Well, at least it's a shot. We know Jasonís been making several large deposits in the past few months. Maybe this will indicate who's been handing him that kind of money.

Courtney: Well, the D.A.'s hoping it's Felicia Gallant, and if she's being blackmailed, it's a pretty good motive.

Rick: Well, whoever's been paying Jason off has a lot of explaining to do.

Courtney: Yep.

Art: This is everything we've got -- statements. The computerized printout shows his deposits and withdrawals. Those are canceled checks and copies of checks he deposited.

Rick: Well, well, well. What do you know. Look at this. The payments came from Iris Wheeler.

Rachel: Take a look at this.

Cass: It's a copy of the spa contract with Frame construction. We canceled this.

Rachel: Not before Jason Frame had been given a bonus of $10,000 in advance.

Cass: A bonus? Who signed this?

Rachel: Iris.

Cass: Why?

Rachel: That's what I'd like to know.

Cass: You think it was a bribe?

Rachel: It could be.

Cass: Have you asked Iris about this?

Rachel: She says it was an incentive, just business. I find that doesn't make any sense. That's a rather large amount of money for just a business incentive.

Cass: Rather. Did you tell Mac about it?

Rachel: I canít. It's too delicate a situation. Iris is his daughter. I need more concrete proof before I want to involve him in this. That's why I wanted to talk to you about it.

Cass: I take it there's more?

Rachel: Nothing concrete. Just a feeling I have about Iris.

Cass: What do you mean?

Rachel: She's been different since Jason died.

Cass: Different how?

Rachel: Tense, edgy. I've seen her like this before.

Cass: You think she's hiding something?

Rachel: Yes, I do. I also think she's doing everything she can to make Felicia look guilty.

Cass: Such as?

Rachel: Such as leaking the manuscript of Feliciaís book to the press.

Cass: She did that?

Rachel: Who else could do it? She knew the connection the press would make between the plot of the book and what happened to Jason.

Cass: Oh, boy, yeah, and the tabloids have really had a field day with this. They've drawn all sorts of sick parallels. It really upset Felicia.

Rachel: I'm sure it did. Meanwhile, Iris is going around assuring everyone that she isnít going to capitalize on this tragedy.

Cass: She also made a statement to the press, right?

Rachel: Yeah, right at the courthouse after the bail hearing. I couldn't believe it.

Cass: I think it's time that I had a talk with Iris.

Rachel: Don't expect any straight answers.

Cass: I'll play her carefully.

Rachel: Cass, when it comes to deception, she's a master.

Iris: What on earth are you talking about?

Amanda: Evan said that he got his information from you. You told him that Janice and daddy were happily married until my mother came and broke them up.

Iris: What?

Amanda: Just the opposite is true, and you know it. Janice was the one! Janice did everything to break up my parents' marriage. All she wanted was daddy's money. She ended up marrying him and then trying to poison him.

Iris: Well, I know that. Janice was a very disturbed woman.

Amanda: Don't tell me that, tell Evan! Daddy wouldn't even be alive today if it wasn't for my mother.

Iris: Of course. Evan just got his facts mixed up.

Amanda: I hope that's all it was.

Iris: Well, of course that's all it was. Goodness, I mean, Evan and I only had one conversation about the subject. Evan wanted to know why Jason hated the Coryís so much.

Amanda: And you filled him in, right?

Iris: Amanda, well, Rachel and I have never got along. I've never made any secret about that. Evan knew that. He probably inferred that it was murder. Amanda, your mother did -- she did stab Janice to death.

Amanda: The knife was Janiceís! It was self-defense.

Iris: I know that. Evan obviously misunderstood.

Amanda: Well, I hope you're right.

Iris: Of course I'm right. Listen, I wouldn't lie about a thing like that. It would only get back to my family. It would hurt you and it would hurt daddy.

[Phone rings]

Amanda: Well, I hope so.

Iris: Trust me.


Iris: I'm going to straighten this out with Evan right now. Yes, Iris Wheeler. Yes, she's right here. Just one moment, please. It's for you.

Amanda: Hello? Yes, this is she. Of course. I'm definitely interested. When? All right, I'll be there.

Iris: Is everything all right?

Amanda: Yes, fine. That was one of my sources for video match. Something may be breaking today. I've got to go.

Iris: Listen, I'm sorry we haven't got time to straighten this out.

Amanda: Oh, we'll talk about this later, in detail.

Iris: I hope so. I don't want anything to come between us, Amanda.

Evan: Hey, where's Amanda going in such a hurry? She didnít even bother to say hi.

Iris: What the hell do you think you're doing? How could you be so stupid?

Iris: How dare you bring up the subject of Janice Frame in front of Amanda? Are you out of your mind? Do you want Rachel and Amanda to know who you are?

Evan: No.

Iris: Then you're handing them the information on a silver platter.

Evan: Look, we were talking about Jasonís death and she brought up the subject of my mother.

Iris: Well, why didnít you change the subject?

Evan: Because it caught me off guard and I overreacted! Is that all right?

Iris: No, it is not all right, and it's not all right to implicate me! Amanda just came storming in here demanding to know why I was slandering her precious mother.

Evan: Is that what she came in here for?

Iris: Yes, and it took a lot to convince her that it was just a little misunderstanding.

Evan: She believe you?

Iris: I think so, but you'd better make sure.

Evan: Well, I just wasn't going to let that get away.

Iris: Good!

Evan: You know, it's really hard hearing Amanda saying all those things about my mother, the way she died. I mean, it just threw me, that's all.

Iris: I know that. Just don't let it happen again.

Evan: You know, all I know about my mother is what other people have told me, and that she was too young to die.

Iris: You don't believe Amanda, do you?

Evan: No, I know the truth.

Iris: I'm so glad, because no matter how people want to window-dress, the facts are always the same -- Rachel did kill your mother. Now it's up to you to set it right.

Cass: After I've spoken to Iris, we'll compare notes, ok?

Rachel: Ok. I'm sorry there isnít something more I can do.

Cass: No, this is good.

Rachel: Do you think so?

Cass: Absolutely.

Rachel: Hi, Mitch!

Cass: Hey, Mitch.

Mitch: Hi, Cass.

Rachel: How's Felicia?

Mitch: As well as can be expected.

Hilda: Mrs. Cory, could I speak with you for a minute?

Rachel: Yeah, what is it?

Hilda: That water heater is leaking.

Rachel: We just got it fixed. Did you call the plumber?

Hilda: Yes, ma'am. I really think you should look at it.

Rachel: Excuse me, please, for a minute?

Cass: I'll see myself out.

Rachel: Ok, thanks.

Mitch: Cass, are you hounding Rachel like you've been hounding Felicia?

Cass: Mitch, you've got to understand I'm doing everything I can to prove that this allegation against Felicia is ridiculous. Now, Rachel and I were just going over some new information that might implicate someone else.

Mitch: Look, Feliciaís already said that she shot Jason, that it was an accident.

Cass: She said that she fired the gun. That's not the same thing.

Mitch: What do you mean it's not the same?

Cass: This forensics report has been bothering me all along. It says that Jason was shot at point-blank range, yet Felicia swears that she was further away.

Mitch: There was only one shot fired.

Cass: We don't know that for sure. Felicia fainted right after she fired the gun. Who knows what might have happened before we got there. It was noisy, there was confusion, balloons popping. Another shot could've been fired.

Mitch: Ok, so how do we find out?

Cass: Well, the big top was taken down the next morning. It was never examined, so I've contacted the people that provided the tent and we're going to take a look through it and see if we can find another bullet in there somewhere.

Mitch: What about the police? Don't they do that?

Cass: Well, Felicia confessed, and the tent was taken down so quickly. I wonder who ordered that.

Mitch: Look, Cass, this is just all speculation. I mean, it's just adding confusion and doubt on her account of the story. She said it was an accident. I believe her.

Cass: I know Felicia isnít lying about what she thinks happened, Mitch.

Mitch: Look, you're just confusing the issue. Find the guy with the scar. He can verify her story.

Cass: We're looking for him, but I just want to follow every lead.

Mitch: Ok. Ok, but time's running out.

Cass: Mitch, I know what I'm doing.

Amanda: Dustin, why did you want to meet me here? Somebody might see us.

Dustin: So what. We're both subscribers. What could be more innocent? Besides, do you want the scam on video match or don't you?

Amanda: You know I do.

Dustin: Well, I promised you I'd help you, so I'm keeping my word. Here.

Amanda: Douglas McKewon.

Dustin: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: That's it? What's this?

Dustin: It's a name. You'll get the rest when you go inside and ask Auntie Rose for his video. Pretend you got the name off the lists.

Amanda: Why?

Dustin: You're a reporter. Don't you want to uncover that for yourself?

Amanda: You're right.

Dustin: Hmm?

Amanda: You're right, it's better this way. McKewon.

Dustin: I'll wait here for you. Good luck.

Amanda: Thanks.

Amanda: Excuse me.

Woman: Amanda! How are you?

Amanda: Fine. Uh, is Auntie Rose here?

Woman: Right here.

Amanda: Can I talk to her?

Woman: But you are, dear.

Amanda: You -- you're not Auntie Rose.

Woman: We're all Auntie Rose.

Amanda: Oh. Oh. I meant the other one.

Woman: Well, she was transferred to Miami or Tallahassee -- something like that. But, well, I'm sure that I'll be able to help you. I've familiarized myself with all of the cases here.

Amanda: Really?

Woman: Yes, we believe in smooth transitions at video match. How was your date with Dustin?

Amanda: You know, that -- that didnít work out.

Woman: Oh. Well, now, don't get discouraged. I am sure that you are going to find the perfect man. As a matter of fact, I've got some new suggestions for you, really some very, very attractive --

Amanda: That's great, but, you know, I'd really just like to look through their files again if I could.

Woman: Well, of course. I understand, and take your time. But if you change your mind, I have some wonderful possibilities for you. I'll just be in the other room.

Amanda: Ok.

Amanda: Ok.

Amanda: McBride.

Amanda: McKewon? It's not here.

Amanda: Ah. There he is.

Amanda: Handsome.

Woman: Well, did you find someone?

Amanda: Yes, I did. I'd like to see his tape.

Woman: Douglas McKewon? No, I -- well, I'm afraid that's -- well, that's just not possible.

Woman: Where did you get this?

Amanda: Well, in with the others. Why, is there a problem?

Woman: Well, no, it's -- well, it's just that, well, Doug is all wrong for you.

Amanda: Oh, but he doesn't look wrong for me.

Woman: Well, he is, believe me.

Amanda: How can you say that? I mean, he's a stockbroker, he's intelligent, he's the perfect age, and he's good-looking. I mean, can you at least let me see his tapes so I can make my own decision?

Woman: Oh. I really, really wish that I could do that, but I canít.

Amanda: Why?

Woman: Look, are you sure that you found this with these?

Amanda: Yeah. I think so, yeah, yeah.

Woman: Well, now, look, see the red star?

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Woman: Well, certain of our clients, well, they refuse to have their videos viewed unless they give their consent each time.

Amanda: Oh, he's one of those?

Woman: Yes. But I could have him look at your cassette, and then if he's interested he'll get in touch with you.

Amanda: But I was never told about this red-star business.

Woman: Well, it's -- it's new. I've just started it. It's called the V.I.P. Club.

Amanda: That sounds pretty elitist.

Woman: Well, now, you don't have to worry about that because every man that has seen your cassette has just been dying to meet you. And if Doug isnít, well, there will be hundreds more.

Amanda: Oh, but I want to meet Doug. I mean, you said that I could choose my own dates, right?

Woman: Well, now, I'll see what I can do.

Amanda: So you'll show him my tape?

Woman: Yes.

Amanda: Ok. Well, I'll be back. Thanks.

Dustin: What happened?

Amanda: Auntie Rose said that McKewon is part of a V.I.P. Club.

Dustin: Did you get a date with him?

Amanda: No. He's off-limits --

Dustin: Ah.

Amanda: At least for now. She said she was going to show him my tape.

Dustin: I guarantee she'll call and say he's not interested.

Amanda: What makes you so sure?

Dustin: I know all about Doug McKewon and the V.I.P. Club. Here.

Amanda: What are you talking about?

Dustin: You'll find out when you go to that address -- now.

Julie Ann: Why don't I take your garbage out for you?

Zack: No, you should tell me about Rick, and stop avoiding me like you have been.

Julie Ann: I haven't been doing that.

Zack: Look, when you clean voluntarily, you're avoiding the subject.

Julie Ann: Well, I guess you're right. You know that Rick and I have been seeing each other for a while now.

Zack: Yes, I know.

Julie Ann: And I care about him a lot.

Zack: I know that, too.

Julie Ann: And he's not my first boyfriend.

Zack: Ok, Julie Ann.

Julie Ann: Well, Zack, what I'm trying to say is I've gone out with a lot of guys, and I know when something is an infatuation.

Zack: Or something's more serious?

Julie Ann: Yes.

Zack: You trying to tell me you're getting more serious about Rick?

Julie Ann: I'm trying to tell you that I'm -- I'm thinking of moving in with him.

Rachel: I'm sorry to have kept you waiting.

Mitch: Well, I just wanted to thank you and Mac for putting up the money for Feliciaís bail.

Rachel: You don't have to thank us.

Mitch: Well, she's under a lot of pressure now and, well, she needs her friends.

Rachel: Whatever we can do.

Mitch: Thank you.

Rachel: Mitch? I'm glad you came over. I've been wanting to talk to you a little bit about Matthew.

Mitch: You know, with everything that's been going on, I haven't even -- I haven't had a chance to see him. Is he all right?

Rachel: Yeah, he's fine. He wants to give Josie a ring. I think it's a pre-engagement ring.

Mitch: So does that bother you?

Rachel: Doesn't it bother you?

Mitch: No, not really. I mean, kids give kids rings. It doesn't mean that they're going to get married.

Rachel: I know, but they're so young to be that serious with each other.

Mitch: Yeah, and he and Josie haven't had an easy time of it. I mean, it seems like their families have been fighting since before they even met.

Rachel: I know. That's what bothers me about all of this. It's as though they feel like they're Romeo and Juliet. They're just two normal kids who like each other.

Mitch: Yeah, and let's just let them work it out. I mean, now especially with what's happened with -- well, with Jason, it's not going to be easy on them.

Rachel: Yeah, I know.

Mitch: You know, maybe it says a lot for their maturity they've been able to handle this mess as well as they have.

Rachel: Yeah, that's true, but --

Mitch: But what?

Rachel: I don't know, I guess maybe it's Josie. Maybe I'm not sure she's the right lady for him.

Mitch: Is that what's really bothering you?

Rachel: I think so. She's so needy, Mitch.

Mitch: So what do you think's going to happen, that this situation is going to push them closer together?

Rachel: I think so. I don't know. And if it does, I don't think they'll be aware that that's what's causing it.

Mitch: Look, I know one thing -- Matthew is almost a man, and whether we like it or not, we need to deal with him as one.

Rachel: I know, but I canít abandon him --

Mitch: No.

Rachel: I mean, even if this is what he thinks he wants.

Mitch: Look, you shouldnít have to deal with all of this by yourself, and it's just that he and I haven't had any time together.

Rachel: I know, but it's just temporary.

Mitch: I hope so. It doesn't seem like I've ever really been there when he needs me.

Rachel: Listen, I'm sorry. It's ok, don't worry about Matthew. You've got enough on your mind with Felicia right now. He'll be fine, and you'll have the rest of your life to be with Matthew.

Iris: Well, I don't see how I can help you. I mean, I've told you everything I know about Felicia and about the party and --

Courtney: Actually, we are more interested in your relationship with Mr. Frame.

Iris: Oh, that's easy. I don't have a relationship with Mr. Frame.

Rick: Well, we've been going over his bank records. We know you made some large payments to him.

Courtney: Can you tell us about that?

Iris: What are you implying?

Courtney: I'm not implying anything. We're just investigating his contacts, personal and otherwise.

Iris: Well, Jason did work for Cory Publishing for the spa, yes.

Rick: Yes, but why weren't those checks made out to Frame Construction?

Courtney: And why were deposits made to his personal account?

Iris: I haven't the faintest idea.

Rick: Mrs. Wheeler, it's in your best interest to cooperate. I'm sure you realize that.

Iris: Yes, of course I do. Uh -- oh, drink?

Courtney: No, no, thank you.

Iris: Now, let me see. Yes, Jason did receive some additional checks, and they were made out to him personally. I wanted to make sure that everything went smoothly for my father's sake.

Rick: Well, I think you're going to have to explain that.

Iris: Well, let me see. There has been a long history of antagonism between the Coryís and the Frames. I'm sure you already know that some years ago, Rachel killed Janice Frame?

Rick: Yes, but that was in self-defense, wasn't it?

Iris: Yes, but nevertheless, Jason has always had this hatred for Rachel. In fact, he's had a vendetta for their whole family ever since he came back to live in Bay City. I wasn't here at the time, but, I mean, he even tried to implicate my father in murder, and then --

Courtney: Mrs. Wheeler, where is this heading?

Iris: I'm sorry, but I was trying to help. I thought maybe you might find revenge a motive.

Rick: Please, go on.

Iris: Well, let me see. The families are still linked. Jamie -- that's Rachelís son -- he's really a Frame even though my father raised him, and Matthew -- Rachelís youngest son -- well, he's sort of involved with Josie.

Rick: Yes, but, Mrs. Wheeler, how do you fit into all this?

Iris: Well, when I came back to Bay City, I was very distressed by all the suffering that my family were going through, and I -- I wanted to put an end to it and I tried to get Jason to stop those assaults. I mean, I wanted peace. Oh, but he wasn't interested. He just wanted the money.

Courtney: So you gave it to him?

Iris: Yes, I did.

Courtney: I wonder, is there anyone that can back up your story?

Iris: Oh, perhaps you could -- you could talk to Evan bates. He assisted me in those arrangements.

Rick: Yes, we'll do that.

Iris: Oh, I hope my father doesn't have to know about this, does he?

Courtney: I don't see why he should have to, not at this point. Thank you.

Iris: Oh, would you mind if I asked you a question?

Courtney: Well, that depends on what it is.

Iris: Ok. The district attorney has charged Felicia with murder, right, so why are you investigating things like -- well, like Jasonís contract?

Rick: Well, it's not an open-and-shut case. If there's anybody else who wanted Jason dead, we certainly want to know about it.

Iris: Well, I --

Courtney: What?

Iris: Nothing.

Rick: Well, you were just about to say something there.

Iris: Yes, I'm sorry. I shouldnít have. It's just conjecture.

Courtney: We would still like to know what you're thinking.

Iris: Look, I'd rather not say.

Courtney: Ms. Wheeler, a man is dead. You should tell us everything that could relate to the case.

Iris: Yes. Well, of all the people who disliked Jason -- you know, I hate to say this. But of all the people who disliked Jason, Rachel disliked him the most.

Mitch: There's nothing to worry about. I will talk to Matthew.

Rachel: Ok, I'll work on it. Give our love to Felicia, ok?

Mitch: Ok.

Hilda: Mr. Bates is here to see you.

Rachel: Oh, hello, Evan. Would you get Mr. Blake's coat, please?

Hilda: Yes.

Rachel: What's up?

Evan: These papers need your signature and I decided to bring them over in person.

Rachel: Ok, thank you.

Evan: Hi, Mitch. I just want to say that I'm really sorry about this Felicia thing and I just hope it straightens out quickly.

Mitch: Well, I do, too. Thank you. I will see you later.

Rachel: Ok. Keep us posted, all right?

Mitch: I will.

Rachel: Ok.

Evan: You and Mitch are friends?

Rachel: Yes. Well, I guess we've worked at becoming friends. We share a son in common. Actually, we share quite a bit in common, which is one of the reasons I'm so upset about Felicia.

Evan: There was something in the paper about you and another Frame.

Rachel: Yes?

Evan: Don't you think you should fill me in on that?

Rachel: Why?

Evan: Well, the reporters are calling our office a lot now, and I just think I should know what to tell them in case they ask me about Janice Frame's death.

Man: Hey, skip, how you doing?

Skip: Hi, Tony, how you doing? How's things today, all right?

Tony: Great, yeah. Reuben. Enjoy.

Reuben: Hey, Tony, what's up? Thanks a lot.

Amanda: Excuse me. Do I have the right address?

Tony: I think that's your decision.

Amanda: Well, I mean, is this address the same as the one on the card?

Tony: Right.

Amanda: That's funny, I thought I was looking for an office building.

Tony: Wrong.

Amanda: I'm looking for a person, a Doug McKewon? He's a stockbroker.

Tony: That's a good one.

Reuben: So what's your story, huh? I mean, you lost or something?

Zack: You're moving in together?

Julie Ann: Yeah.

Zack: Have you mentioned this to mom and dad?

Julie Ann: Well, I thought I'd try it on you first, sort of like a dress rehearsal.

Zack: Julie Ann, you've only known this guy for a few months!

Julie Ann: I haven't made a decision yet, but --

Zack: But what?

Julie Ann: I feel that it's right.

Zack: Well, I don't like it.

Julie Ann: What don't you like, that I'm moving in with someone or the someone happens to be Rick?

Zack: Julie Ann --

Julie Ann: Or the fact that he's white?

Zack: This isnít about race. I care about you, kid.

Julie Ann: Well, why don't you give me your support, no matter what I decide?

Zack: Look, I thought you wanted my advice.

Julie Ann: Well, not if it's going to be negative.

Courtney: Excuse me.

Zack: Hi, Courtney. Rick. What can I do for you?

Courtney: This is a business call. I'm just dropping off a tape of my conversation with Felicia.

Zack: Thank you.

Courtney: It's the law.

Rick: I didnít expect to see you here.

Julie Ann: Well, I came to talk to Zack to tell him our news.

Courtney: Oh, what news?

Julie Ann: It's ok. Go ahead, you can tell her.

Rick: Well, Julie Ann and I are thinking about moving in together. Zack, look, I know that we've had our differences, but I hope that's all in the past. I really care about Julie Ann. Believe that.

Zack: I'm trying.

Rick: The reason I suggested, you know, moving in together is because, you see, I want Julie Ann to be more than just part of my life. I want her to know my family. Look, we're going to give this every chance, so I hope you will, too.

Zack: Ahem.

Rick: Julie Ann, I'll talk to you later.

Julie Ann: Ok. And I'll talk to you later.

Zack: Yeah.

Zack: Ok. Let me have it.

Courtney: His life, his family? I mean, Zack, how can you condone this?

Amanda: So do you deliver for Winthrop and Edwards?

Reuben: Oh, yeah. You're looking at my pouch, huh? I just do them favors every now and then. It's not like I'm their messenger or nothing like that.

Amanda: I know both of them. They're really nice guys.

Reuben: Winthrop's all right.

Amanda: Oh, Zackís nice, too.

Reuben: Yeah, I guess, sometimes.

Amanda: I'm Amanda, Amanda Fowler.

Reuben: Reuben.

Amanda: Hi, Reuben. So do you like working with them?

Reuben: Yeah, you know, it's nice. You know, you know a lot about me, but clue me in about you.

Amanda: Excuse me?

Reuben: I mean, like, what are you doing here?

Amanda: Well, actually, I'm looking for somebody. I thought I was looking for an office building and not a bar. I mean, I walked in here and I thought I had the wrong place, but I had the right place. I was just a little confused.

Reuben: Gotcha.

Amanda: You know, and then when I asked the bartender if he knew the guy that I was looking for, he just laughed at me.

Reuben: You know, why don't you try the direct approach in a place like this?

Amanda: What's that?

Reuben: You know, you just got to act like you know what the score is, that's all.

Amanda: Ok. It's worth a try. Ok, ok. Hey, I never got an answer to my question.

Tony: What question is that?

Amanda: Where is Doug McKewon?

Tony: He'll be here.

Reuben: Hey.

Iris: Hello, Cass.

Cass: Hello, Iris.

Iris: If you've come in your official capacity as Feliciaís lawyer, I want you to know that we at "Brava" are going to do everything we can to stand behind her, and whatever you need --

Cass: That's very nice of you, but actually I didnít come here to discuss Felicia.

Iris: Oh, you didnít?

Cass: No, I wanted to discuss you.

Iris: Oh. How flattering.

Cass: Well, I'm not so sure. You see, there was a sidebar in your contract with Frame construction, and it authorized a $10,000 bonus to Jason Frame, and I was wondering why.

Iris: Did the police tell you about this?

Cass: No, but why don't you tell me what you told them and we can proceed from there.

Iris: I don't take well to being hounded, Cass.

Cass: Have you got something to hide, Iris?

Iris: No.

Cass: Then why wonít you tell me why you gave Jason all that extra money?

Iris: Because it's none of your business.

Cass: Iris, I work for Cory Publishing. I'm the one who drew up that contract in the first place. There was never any clause about a bonus to Jason Frame. I want to know why that was changed.

Iris: Ok. It was a frivolity.

Cass: A frivolity?

Iris: Yes, a frivolity. I -- I wanted some decorative features in the spa's reception room, and they were extravagant and they weren't included in the budget.

Cass: Is that so?

Iris: Yes. So I paid for them out of my own money. Jason said he'd handle it.

Cass: I see.

Iris: I hope you do see. I hope you're going to end this ridiculous investigation.

Cass: That's quite a story.

Iris: It's quite simple, isnít it? Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got work to do.

Cass: But the problem is I don't believe one word of it.

Amanda: Excuse me.

Tony: Yeah?

Amanda: How long am I going to have to wait for this guy?

Tony: Waiting time is over. Ok, ladies! The moment you've been waiting for -- ladies' night here at skip's place! Here, direct from Bay City's financial district is that high-roller hunk, that high-rolling hunk, the stockbroker, Doug McKewon!

Doug: The board meeting's over, ladies. It's time to unwind, loosen up, and party! Let's do it!

Rachel: The best way to handle the reporters is to ignore them, refuse to give them a comment.

Evan: Even if they parallels between Jason and Janice Frame's deaths?

Rachel: Especially then. We have worked very hard to put all of that behind us. I don't want to see it dragged through the papers again.

Evan: I was only trying to help. I gather it's still very painful for you.

Rachel: When you go through something like that, you never quite get over it. That's why I'm so upset about Felicia.

Evan: Jason Frame is the one that's dead.

Rachel: Jason Frame was a very self-destructive man. It's a trait that seems to go through that family. They have an incredible talent for provoking other people to be the means of their own destruction.

Evan: Is that what happened to you?

Rachel: Evan, Janice Frame was coming at me with a knife. She had every intention of killing me and then killing Mac. I stopped her. Yes, Hilda?

Hilda: The plumber says he must speak directly to you.

Rachel: Excuse me.

Evan: Yeah, I'll see you in the office.

Evan: Certainly, I'll be glad to let myself out.

Evan: This is not over. Not by a long shot.

Iris: Are you calling me a liar, Cass?

Cass: Is that a first for you?

Iris: Get out!

Cass: I want you to know something, Iris -- I've only just begun work on this case, but I've already decided that Feliciaís bullet wasn't the only one that was fired that night.

Iris: That's absurd.

Cass: I don't think so. I think someone else shot Jason Frame, and it wasn't an accident.

Iris: You're bluffing.

Cass: Am I? Felicia is more than a client to me. She's my best friend, and you can be damn sure I'm not going to let her be convicted for a crime she didnít commit.

Iris: That's very noble of you, Cass, but you'll need more than theory. You'll need evidence.

Cass: I'll get it, and I'll get whoever did murder Jason Frame, I promise you that.
