Vicky: I need to tell you something, Jamie.
Jamie: Ok. I'm listening.
Vicky: I wanted this baby so badly that I wouldnít let anything stand in my way. But that means --
Michael: Jamie, Vicky, I got news.
Vicky: What? What?
Michael: I got great news!
Nurse: His fever's broken. He's alert and screaming his head off.
Michael: He's going to be all right!
Jamie: Oh, my God!
Michael: He's going to be ok!
Vicky: Oh, this is the best day of my life!
Nurse: He's off the critical list.
Michael: Isnít that amazing? So, ok, family -- when can family see him?
Vicky: Yes, when?
Michael: Well, I need a phone. Come, take me to a phone.
Jamie: This is so wonderful!
Vicky: Jamie, I want to see him, I want to see him!
Jamie: Absolutely, right now! I'm sure he's still in the isolator. Come on, let's go.
Vicky: I want to see him.
Jamie: Wait, wait, wait. What were you going to say? You said you wanted to tell me the truth about the baby.
Josie: This is the most beautiful ring.
Matt: I saw it and I knew it was for you. But I was worried because I didnít know how you felt.
Josie: You know what? I'm not going to be afraid to tell you how I feel from now on. I love you.
Matt: You do?
Josie: And I'd do anything for you. Anything.
Sharlene: Josie. What's going on?
Cass: Ok, we have to state our case right upfront before the trial begins.
Felicia: Tomorrow, in other words.
Cass: That's right. The state has to say what the charge is -- in this case, murder -- and then we have to tell them what our defense will be, and once we do, we canít change it.
Mitch: Why donít you say that our defense is it was an accident, that it was at least self-defense?
Cass: I donít want to plead either one.
Mitch: Why not?
Cass: The only way to go on this is a straight not guilty. If we plead not guilty accidental or not guilty self-defense, then we're stuck with that throughout the whole trial.
Felicia: You mean we canít say that it was ever an accident unless we plead that right from the beginning?
Cass: That's right.
Mitch: That's great.
Nicole: You mean you canít tell them it was self-defense even later?
Felicia: So you just want to go with a not guilty?
Cass: And win. We'll give the jury reasonable doubt.
Felicia: Honey, I did shoot him.
Cass: I donít think so.
Mitch: What do you mean, you donít think so? What sort of chance does she have with a case that's built on "I donít think so"?
Felicia: Mitch, wait a minute. Let's listen.
Cass: Look, all I have to do is cast suspicion on somebody else. Then that's it, the jury's got reasonable doubt and they'll acquit.
Nicole: Cast suspicion on whom?
Cass: This doesn't go any further than this room, all right, everybody?
Felicia: Of course not. Tell me.
Cass: I think the two likely targets are John Hudson and Iris Wheeler.
Felicia: Oh, no, no, honey, I donít want anybody else hurt in this. I donít, Cass.
Cass: Look, I'm not going to say that they did it. I'm only going to show that they had a motive, a better motive than you did.
Nicole: And the opportunity.
Cass: That's right. Then with the gun still missing, I can also imply that they had the means. Motive, opportunity, means for at least two other people --
Nicole: Equals reasonable doubt.
Felicia: I donít know. I mean, it sounds right.
Cass: It is right.
Vicky: Jamie, that's not important anymore.
Jamie: Yes, it is, and I want to know.
Vicky: No, I was just worried about Steven so much --
Jamie: Uh-huh, what did you mean, the truth about the baby?
Vicky: Oh, mom!
Donna: Darling, oh, I just heard the news!
Vicky: Isnít this wonderful?
Donna: I told you everything would be all right, didnít I?
Vicky: Well, yeah, I kind of told you the same thing.
Michael: Hey, that's what I like to see -- one big happy family, huh?
Jamie: You got that right.
Michael: Isnít that great about the baby, honey?
Donna: Yes, I couldn't be happier.
Vicky: Oh, you know, I've learned the most valuable lesson. My family's the most important thing in the world to me. I'll do anything for any one of you.
Michael: Well, I think that's the way it ought to be. And you know something, young lady --
Michael: I think that you are going to make the same wonderful, intense mother that your mother made.
Donna: Except I didnít get an opportunity to raise my child. I'm so happy for you. You're going to have the opportunity to watch your baby grow up.
Vicky: Thank you, mom.
Jamie: Come on, let's go see that little fella right now.
Vicky: Oh, donít call him "little fella."
Jamie: Yeah, why not?
Vicky: His name is Steven. I donít like nicknames. Steven.
Michael: What's wrong with you? Are you not happy about this baby?
Donna: Of course I'm happy about the baby. It's you I'm not so sure about.
Donna: Does the name "sans souci" mean anything to you? That's what I thought.
Sharlene: I said, what's going on?
Josie: Mama --
Matt: I'd like to talk to you, Mrs. Watts.
Sharlene: Fine, go ahead.
Matt: Josie and I -- we care about each other.
Sharlene: I can see that.
Matt: I've given her a ring.
Sharlene: A ring?
Josie: Yeah, isnít it beautiful, mama?
Matt: It's what you might -- ahem -- call a pre-engagement ring.
Sharlene: Josie, you know I only want what's best for you.
Josie: I know.
Sharlene: Then you will believe me when I tell you that you donít know what you're getting yourself into.
Josie: Why are you always saying that to me?
Sharlene: Because you're just too young.
Matt: Just like my mom.
Sharlene: Why, Matthew, what does your mother say?
Matt: The usual -- we're too young, finish our educations first.
Sharlene: Well, maybe you should listen to her.
Josie: It's just a pre-engagement ring, mama.
Matt: I love Josie, Mrs. Watts. I think about her all the time.
Josie: And we're going to be very sensible, mama, about everything.
Matt: Haven't you ever been in love like that before, Mrs. Watts?
Sharlene: Matthew, do you really love her, or do you just want to sleep with her?
Felicia: Mitch? You think is Cass is right, donít you?
Mitch: I think it's easy to take risk, especially when somebody else has to pay the losses.
Cass: We're not going to lose.
Mitch: You donít know that, Cass. All you have is a theory. There were two guns, but you've got no proof.
Cass: I'll get it.
Nicole: He hasn't had much time, Mitch.
Mitch: Look, it's not going to play. The press has already tried and convicted her.
Cass: Well, we'll turn that around!
Mitch: What, do you think you're going to find a jury that's never read a newspaper?
Cass: We'll start feeding the press stories about how there were a lot of other people who had motives.
Nicole: Unlike Felicia, who didnít have one.
Felicia: This is going to probably be so hard on Josie on Sharlene, though, Cass.
Nicole: Oh, Felicia, you've got to think of yourself.
Mitch: You know, I think I've got it.
Mitch: The press.
Cass: What about it?
Mitch: You can work the press and make a big name for yourself.
Cass and Felicia: Mitch!
Mitch: Sure, no matter what happens, he wins! You can just be his ticket to the big-time!
Felicia: Mitch, stop it.
Cass: Hey, I've had with this kind of talk, Mitch!
Mitch: Why donít you take a hike?
Felicia: You've got to stop doing this!
Cass: Why do you have it in for me, huh?
Mitch: Because it's her life we're dealing with!
Felicia: Stop it! I mean it! Now stop it, both of you! If you keep acting like this, you can just go. I will take care of my own defense.
Cass: Felicia --
Felicia: I mean it! God! I will take care of myself!
Cass: Felicia, donít be absurd.
Nicole: You need all the help you can get right now.
Mitch: Look, will you forget about going out on your own?
Felicia: I would probably be better off if I did just that.
Cass: Since when has one head ever been better than four? Come on. Stacey is still following up on that strongman lead.
Nicole: Yeah, and Zackís got something, too, doesn't he?
Cass: Yeah, he's tracing the circus inventory.
Mitch: Look, you're not going out on your own, ok?
Felicia: It would probably be better if I did. Then the two of you would stop arguing all the time.
Nicole: There's something else, too. Your stepfather's sister -- what was her name?
Cass: Right, we're tracking her down. You know, I still -- I still find it very curious that Jason called her just before he was shot.
Nicole: Yeah, she's in a retirement home now, though, so it's going to take some time.
Cass: But we will find her. Honey, can you help us with that? Where would she go to retire?
Felicia: Oh, I donít know. I mean, she liked -- she liked warm weather, so maybe Florida, California? But then she was also a homebody, so she probably may have even come back to Chicago. I donít know.
Cass: We've already tried most of the Chicago retirement homes.
Nicole: No luck.
Felicia: Well, then I'm afraid I canít help you.
Mitch: You guys, would you mind if I had a minute with Felicia?
Cass: No, not at all.
Nicole: No, I have to get back to the salon, anyway.
Cass: I'll drive you. Is it ok if I come back a little later? I'll bring the sketch that I want you to look at.
Cass: No more of this "I'll handle it alone" stuff, ok?
Felicia: Then stop fighting with him, please?
Cass: I'll see you later.
Nicole: So long.
Felicia: Ok, honey, thank you.
Cass: Got your purse?
Nicole: Got it.
Mitch: If she loses, how many years?
Cass: Mitch, we're going to make it.
Mitch: How many years is she facing?
Cass: Donít worry about that now. That's way down the road.
Mitch: How many?
Cass: 25 to life.
Josie: Mama, how -- how could you say that?
Sharlene: I'm sorry, Josie. I just want you to think this thing out.
Josie: No, you just want me to be unhappy.
Matt: It's ok.
Josie: No, it isnít ok. Why are you always so negative?
Sharlene: Sweetheart, I like to think of it as being realistic.
Matt: I think I'll leave.
Josie: Well, if you're going, I'm going, too.
Matt: I haven't even been home since I went to Chicago. I have to meet my dad.
Josie: Well, then can you drop me off at the library or something?
Matt: Of course.
Josie: That's ok, isnít it, mama?
Sharlene: Oh, yeah, that's ok, because I think we all need to have a little time to think this thing out.
Matt: I'll get the coats.
Sharlene: Josie, you know that all I really want for you is to be happy.
Josie: That wasn't fair, mama. What you said about Matthew and I sleeping together, that wasn't fair.
Sharlene: I'm sorry.
Matt: Ready to go?
Matt: I'll take care of your daughter, Mrs. Watts. She's safe with me.
Sharlene: Matthew, I think that my wishes concerning my daughter's future should be respected.
Matt: And I did not say they weren't going to be.
[Knock on door]
Matt: Aunt Liz!
Sharlene: Liz, hello.
Liz: Sharlene. Hi, Matthew. Is that your car parked outside?
Matt: Yeah. Josie and I were on our way to the library.
Liz: It's nice to see the two of you.
Liz: Bye, dears.
Liz: Nothing changes, I see.
Liz: Always problems wherever you are.
Vicky: Oh, Bridget! Whoo!
Bridget: Oh, my! I just heard the news, dear.
Vicky: Oh, is this incredible?
Bridget: Oh, yes! Oh, I'm so happy. I mean, the poor little lad, he gave us a terrible scare, you know.
Donna: Yes, but that's all over now.
Michael: Well, Bridget, I'm so glad you're going to be there. It means the kids will get at least 48 hours' worth of sleep, right?
Donna: Yes, we probably all will.
Vicky: Oh, God.
Bridget: What is it?
Vicky: I have to take Steven home.
Vicky: And what if something happens? It's going to --
Bridget: Nothing's going to happen, dear.
Vicky: Oh, I wonít know what to do!
Michael: Honey, look, it was a one-time thing. It's not going to happen again.
Vicky: I'm scared.
Bridget: Oh, Victoria, you'll be fine, dear. You just trust your intuition.
Donna: Dr. Spock says that you know a lot more than you think you do.
Bridget: You see, love is the most important thing. If you love them, they'll tell you what they need, dear.
Donna: Mm-hmm, and also, I was reading an article lately. It's about this new machinery -- there's a device that you can actually strap on the baby and it tells you when the baby is wet. There's a little alarm that goes off --
Michael: Donna, Donna? I think that Vicky can do without the high-tech.
Vicky: Thanks for the suggestion, though. That was nice. Oh!
Jamie: The little fella's been asking for his mommy.
Vicky: Already sucking his thumb, this one is. You're just like your mommy, aren't you? Yes.
Donna: Oh, you precious thing.
Vicky: Do you know how long I have waited to hold you? Do you know?
Jamie: Hey, everybody, check out these fists. This little guy is going to be a champion some day, you just watch. Hi.
Vicky: Sit down?
Jamie: Sit down, yeah.
Michael: Boy. It's amazing, isnít it?
Michael: Well, just how things change, life changes.
Michael: Look at Vicky. Whoever would've thought she'd become the model for motherly love, hmm?
Donna: And Jamie would be married to her and not to Lisa.
Michael: Well, I donít know that I ever really thought Jamie would come through.
Donna: You never really do know a person, no matter how much you think you might, even when you marry them.
Michael: I think it's time we talked about sans souci, right?
Donna: I want to know who wrote that love letter.
Cass' voice: 25 years to life. 25 years to life. 25 years to life!
Felicia: Hi. Remembering the days when we used to laugh a lot?
Mitch: Do you trust me?
Felicia: Of course I do. What?
Mitch: I've been thinking. It's just an idea, but I've thought about it carefully and I've thought about it all the way through.
Felicia: What is it?
Mitch: Later, just as long as you trust me.
Felicia: Honey, come on, tell me, what is it?
Mitch: When we got married, didnít we say that we would first, last, and always be partners?
Felicia: If you're worried about what I said earlier, you donít have to be. You know that I would never make a decision without consulting you. You know that. Ok?
Mitch: Matthew is back from Chicago, and I told him that I wanted to see him.
Felicia: That could be a problem, you know, because Cass is coming back, remember?
Mitch: No, it's ok, we're going to meet in Baker's Park.
Felicia: Why? Honey?
Mitch: It's just that sometimes I would like to be able to do some things for you.
Mitch: You know, I would like to be the classy guy, the white knight who gives you what you're used to, what you deserve.
Felicia: You are my white knight, always. What is this about?
Mitch: Cass will be here.
Mitch: It's just that I want to be the one who comes through for you, not Cass.
Sharlene: I'm in no mood to fight, Liz.
Liz: Well, you were certainly doing a good job of it with Matthew when I came in.
Sharlene: No, we were having a discussion, not a fight.
Liz: Is that what they call it nowadays?
Sharlene: What can I do for you?
Liz: You know, it always amazes me the way you came back to Bay City and then you ignored me.
Sharlene: Well, I didnít think we had anything to say.
Liz: Perhaps I represent the past, the past you'd rather forget?
Sharlene: Look, Liz, whether you believe it or not, I loved your nephew and I was good to him.
Liz: "Good"? You were "good"?
Sharlene: All right, Liz --
Liz: By lying to him, then running away when he found out the truth?
Sharlene: I donít need to hear you listing all these --
Liz: I wasn't heartbroken when you left.
Sharlene: All right, fine, all right, fine, you've got me! You've got me. You know about my miserable past. I should be ashamed, and I always will be. I am. Isnít that enough? What more do you want from me?
Liz: I want to make sure you know where things stand.
Sharlene: What "things"? Why do we have to bring this all up again?
Liz: Because Russ is coming back to Bay City.
Donna: Do you have any idea how it felt for me to find a love letter in your coat pocket?
Michael: I can imagine.
Donna: I thought I knew you.
Michael: You do. So that might lead you to believe that there'd be a logical explanation for all this, right?
Donna: I want to know her name. I want to know if she's chasing you or if you are involved with her.
Michael: Donna, look, I know it's a lame excuse, but I didnít tell you because I knew that we would have this argument and I wanted to be able to talk about this.
Donna: Are you having an affair?
Michael: I had an affair.
Donna: How long ago?
Michael: Honey, it was before I found you again. It was over years ago.
Michael: See? Simple.
Michael: Feel better?
Donna: No. I'm not going to feel better until I know everything. I want to know her name. I want to know when you met her. I want to know why you left her and where you left her. I want to know everything about her right now!
Jamie: Oh, my goodness, look at this place. Look how crowded it is!
Bridget: I think that baby's so sleepy, he doesn't even notice.
Vicky: Oh, he's so precious.
Jamie: Let me take your coat.
Bridget: Why donít I go in and see that the crib's all right?
Vicky: Ok. You know, I talked to John and he said he's working on the house, it's shaping up, and we should be able to move in soon.
Jamie: Oh, wonderful. So do you think you'll sleep tonight, my dear?
Vicky: Oh, will you?
Jamie: Like a baby.
Vicky: Now, you're sure this canít happen again, Jamie?
Jamie: It was an infection, my dear, and the antibiotic killed it.
Vicky: All right.
Jamie: We are so lucky.
Vicky: Jamie, I donít think I've been happier in my whole life.
Jamie: So tell me, what was all that about telling me the truth?
Jamie: At the hospital?
Vicky: Oh. Oh, that. That was nothing.
Jamie: Donít say it was nothing, Vicky. You were dying inside. You said you needed to tell me something.
Vicky: No, no. I was just worried about Steven.
Jamie: Vicky, if we canít be honest with each other, what kind of a marriage do we have?
Vicky: You're right. You're absolutely right. See, what I was going to tell you is that I wanted you away from Lisa all along.
Vicky: Yes, you remember all the times I accidentally bumped into you and I acted so innocent? It wasn't innocent at all. You see, I arranged it all.
Jamie: Oh. I see.
Vicky: I'm just so happy, Jamie, and things have worked out and I've been so lucky. I just needed to tell you the truth, and there it is. Do you forgive me?
Matt: Hey, dad.
Mitch: Hey. Hi, Josie.
Josie: Hi. I hope you didnít mind me coming along with Matthew.
Mitch: No, no, no, that's all right.
Matt: Yeah, we -- we have some news to tell you, then Josie has to go over to the campus.
Mitch: Ok, so what's the news?
Matt: Well, I hope you're happy for us, you know. Go ahead, show him.
Mitch: It's very pretty.
Mitch: You did give this to her, didnít you?
Matt: Yeah. It's a pre-engagement ring.
Mitch: Well, congratulations.
Matt: That's it? That's all you're going to say?
Mitch: What do you want me to say?
Josie: That! We want you say that. That's great.
Matt: Yeah, well, we're just not used to that sort of response.
Mitch: Why, who else have you told?
Matt: Josieís mom, who's not really thrilled about the situation, and mom, you know, who's being mom.
Mitch: Look, if you love somebody and you're ready to make a commitment, then that's a good thing. You know, if you canít take a chance for somebody you love, then why bother?
Josie: And we're not going to rush into anything.
Mitch: Well, that sounds good, like you have plenty of time to do whatever you want to do when you want to do it, so just donít miss out on the good parts.
Matt: Well, if we start doing that, you tell us, ok?
Mitch: I'll tell you.
Josie: I really should get to the library.
Matt: Why donít I just catch up to you a little later?
Matt: All right.
Josie: Bye, Mr. Blake.
Mitch: No, "Mr. Blake," ok -- Mitch.
Josie: Mitch. See you later.
Matt: Oh, boy.
Mitch: Look, I didnít mean to mess up your big night with Josie.
Matt: Oh, no, no. She -- she really has to study.
Mitch: I'm glad you stopped by.
Matt: Yeah, sure. Why here?
Mitch: Well, Cass and Felicia had some business to take care of in the apartment.
Matt: Oh, yeah. Is she ok? I mean, she must be scared.
Mitch: Yeah. Yeah, she's scared, but she's going to be all right. I'm going to see to that. I like Josie.
Matt: Yeah. She likes you, too.
Mitch: You know, I was thinking, I guess it was right when I came back, you -- you asked me what love felt like.
Matt: I remember that.
Mitch: I think at the time, you were playing it cool.
Matt: I was trying to be like you.
Mitch: Yeah, well, you got through to me.
Matt: I remember you told me that some day someone would come along and I would know. You were right. You know, I -- ahem -- canít tell you how much it means to me to have you to talk to.
Mitch: Well, I'm glad to hear that, but donít forget about Mac. I guess I did that for a whole lot of years, and I was wrong.
Matt: No, I know.
Mitch: You're like a son to him, you know? I mean, he'll go to the wall for you. I know that. He's a good man.
Matt: Just because I'm close to you doesn't mean I donít talk to Mac.
Mitch: No. Well, just make sure you donít forget. I donít want you to lose what you have with him, just in case sometime, someday I'm not around.
Matt: Dad, what are you talking about? Why wouldnít you be around? Is something wrong?
Michael: After your father threw me out of town, I didnít know whether I'd ever see you again.
Michael: So I -- I traveled around a bit, I went to war. After Vietnam, I went to Europe; I was in the Middle East. I was determined I was not going to come back here the same pauper I was when I left.
Donna: Michael, I loved you the way you were then. I didnít have a fantasy of you might become.
Michael: I know that. But I needed to do it for myself, and I did it. I worked hard, I made a lot of money, and I was with a lot of women.
Donna: I donít need to know the details of all the women that you were with.
Michael: And I met a woman who made me feel something again.
Donna: Did you love her?
Michael: I never let myself say it to myself or to her. Honey, I could never forget you.
Donna: Did you tell her about me?
Michael: Oh, yeah, I did, many, many times.
Donna: And in bed --
Michael: Not fair. That's not fair.
Donna: Did you say the same things to her? Did she make you happy?
Michael: Honey, I came back here for you. I wanted only you. You. You.
Donna: Well, at least it's in the past and I donít know what she looks like and I -- I wonít run into her in the street.
Michael: Uh -- Donna?
Michael: You will.
Felicia: No, this is definitely what he looked like.
Cass: So Samís drawing is right on the money? It's pretty exact?
Cass: Ok, look at these.
Felicia: Who took these pictures?
Cass: These are -- the circus promoter gave me some publicity stills of the strongman.
Felicia: No, the mask is different here.
Cass: Yeah, here it's a straight half-mask --
Cass: But in Samís drawing -- excuse me -- it curves down on the side.
Felicia: To the cover the scar.
Cass: Possibly. In fact, probably, although it's not going to make much difference if this guy doesn't come forward.
Felicia: How is Stacey doing with all that?
Cass: She's trying to coax him along, but if that doesn't work, we're just going to have to trap him somehow.
Felicia: You're exhausted, aren't you?
Cass: No, no, no, I'm ok.
Felicia: Oh, come on, you're talking to me. I can tell. I mean, all of this is starting to really put a strain on you, isnít it, and Nicole.
Cass: She's fine. She's back at the salon, working away.
Felicia: This is supposed to be such a happy time. You're supposed to be planning your wedding, and all --
Cass: Donít worry about us. We're going to be married in a few weeks and you're going to be free. Concentrate on that.
Felicia: Yeah. Easier said than done, pal.
Cass: I know, pal. Question.
Cass: How about if I bring in a hypnotist?
Felicia: For what?
Cass: To help you remember details of what happened.
Felicia: Honey, I've told you everything I know.
Cass: Ok. Ok. Bigger question.
Cass: How about if I put you on the witness stand and bring in a hypnotist?
Felicia: Please, Cass, donít ask me to do that, please?
Cass: What are you afraid of? You may have seen the real killer!
Felicia: I didnít see anything! I keep telling you that!
Cass: You may at least be able to give us a clue as to how!
Felicia: I am liable to say anything -- anything! What if I talk about Noah? What if I tell them all how I killed my own stepfather? Is that going to help me?
Cass: We just wonít mention Noahís name.
Felicia: Honey, donít you understand, they are linked together in my mind!
Cass: But you'll be responding to my questions.
Felicia: Cass, I only know that Noah died because I saw him falling. I saw the glass, I saw it shatter on the floor because of what Jason did --
Cass: Ok, take it easy.
Felicia: Because he fell through the mirror!
Cass: Ok. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Donít think about it now. We'll talk about it some other time.
Felicia: Donít ask me to do this, please? I'm so afraid of a hypnotist. It's so dangerous. God, I donít want to go to prison.
Cass: There are lots of different kinds of prisons. Honey, you've been in one for the last 23 years.
Matt: Dad, what is it?
Mitch: It's nothing. I just was thinking that I realize sometimes how -- how lucky I am.
Mitch: That you're my son. I'm proud of you.
Matt: Well, you should be prouder on Friday, right?
Mitch: Why's that?
Matt: Remember, the swim meet? You promised you'd be there.
Mitch: Yeah, on Friday?
Matt: Yeah, it's kind of a father-son tradition, you know?
Matt: I should do well in the 100 meters.
Mitch: God, all those lessons.
Matt: What lessons?
Mitch: Nothing. I was just thinking about all those summers that your mom made sure you had swimming lessons, most of which I missed.
Matt: Are you sure there's nothing wrong?
Mitch: No, nothing's wrong. Look, you know, I made a promise that I was going to dance at your wedding. I donít want to miss that.
Matt: Well, you might just get a chance to do that -- not this week or anything. That's a pre-engagement ring.
Mitch: Ok. Oh, yeah. Well, then there's something I want you to have.
Mitch: You always said you liked this one the best.
Matt: Dad, that's your favorite camera.
Mitch: Well, it's sort of a father-son tradition, sort of a pre-engagement gift. Go on.
Matt: You sure you want me to have this?
Mitch: Yeah, and have fun. Always have fun.
Mitch: You're welcome.
Matt: Well, I'd better --
Matt: I'd better get going. She's expecting me at the library.
Mitch: I'm happy for you. Give her my best.
Matt: Yeah, well, you know, if you ever want this back, you just tell me and --
Mitch: I wonít be needing it for a while. Take care of yourself.
Matt: Yeah. Bye.
Mitch: Matt? I love you. I know I haven't told you that very often, but I love you.
Matt: I love you, too, dad.
Liz: They've offered him the position of chief of staff at the hospital. Of course, he'll have to be approved by the board.
Sharlene: I'm sure he will be.
Liz: Of course he will be. He'll be flying in from Switzerland today or tomorrow.
Sharlene: So he's coming back?
Liz: Yes, he May bring his daughter, Olivia, with him.
Sharlene: He's married?
Liz: Divorced. Donít get any ideas.
Sharlene: Oh, Liz, that's what I love about you is your subtlety.
Liz: Well, it'd be wasted on you. Now, just keep your distance.
Sharlene: For your information, I'm seeing John Hudson. We're quite close.
Liz: I wasn't talking about love, Sharlene. I was talking about money.
Liz: Yes. Russ is wealthy. I remember how you can count a man's money while you smile.
Sharlene: Oh, Liz. I'm trying to be polite, but I'm getting tired of all this. I've got a new life now.
Liz: But no money.
Sharlene: I own part of Frame Construction.
Liz: John gave you that?
Sharlene: No, I inherited it from my brother, which is all I have to say to you. Excuse me.
Liz: All right, all right, all right, Sharlene! Remember the mistakes you made. Remember how badly you hurt Russ. Please leave him alone.
Donna: What do you mean?
Michael: The woman I was in Europe with was Iris Wheeler.
Donna: That's impossible.
Michael: No, it's not.
Donna: But she said she was my friend.
Michael: Donna, it had been over a long time, all right? We had to get on with our lives.
Donna: You and Iris?
Donna: Yes, of course! You and Iris had to get on with your lives, while I was kept in the dark!
Michael: She obviously didnít want to interfere with what we had.
Donna: With what -- with what you had with Iris or what you had with me?
Michael: Donna, come on.
Donna: Why are you defending her?
Michael: I'm not defending her!
Donna: When I think of all the times that that woman has insinuated herself into our lives -- the snowflake ball, moving into this building, and the little episode with the lights where she was too afraid to call anybody else for help?
Michael: Donna --
Donna: That piranha!
Michael: Look, all right! Ugh!
Donna: Oh, she was always pumping me, always asking for information about you. This all makes perfect sense.
Michael: It's my fault, my fault, all right? I should've told you sooner.
Donna: You should have told me when you first came back, and you certainly should have told me before you married me!
Michael: I didnít know! I didnít know I'd ever see her again! I didnít know that she was -- she was Macís daughter! When I met her, she was Iris Wheeler.
Donna: This changes everything.
Michael: What? What does it change? What?
Donna: I had this -- this picture of you --
Michael: What picture? You knew I wasn't a monk all those years.
Michael: Neither were you.
Donna: No, of course I wasnít.
Michael: All right, so then what's the problem? Now it's just out in the open.
Donna: Well, maybe I shouldnít be so angry at you. I cannot help it!
Michael: Look, since I've been back in Bay City, I have been absolutely, 100% faithful to you, and I swear to that! I'll swear to the death!
Donna: You donít have to tell me that. I know.
Michael: So can we put this behind us now, please?
Donna: Are you kidding? I canít wait to have a little chat with Iris.
Michael: You canít.
Donna: You watch me.
Michael: You canít.
Donna: You watch me!
Michael: You canít. She left town.
Jamie: He's fine. He's fast asleep.
Vicky: Jamie, you haven't said anything since I asked you to forgive me.
Jamie: I've been thinking.
Jamie: I was wondering. I was wondering how we all ended up together. I just held my son, I'm home with my wife, and I'm happy.
Vicky: So you donít mind that I kind of arranged things a little bit?
Jamie: Well, I wasn't exactly blameless. I couldn't stay away from you, remember?
Vicky: Well, I was hoping that you would get to that conclusion.
Jamie: It still wasn't all your doing, though. No one made me sleep with you.
Vicky: I tried the best I could.
Jamie: But it was still my decision.
Vicky: So, do you forgive me?
Jamie: There's nothing to forgive. We're together now and we both wanted it that way, and nothing's going to change that.
Vicky: I love you.
Jamie: I love you, too, and I love my son. Anything that produced that beautiful baby cannot possibly be wrong.
Michael: You want to go upstairs?
Donna: Do you think she's never coming back?
Michael: I donít know, and I donít want to talk about Iris.
Donna: I love you.
Michael: And I love you. And I never meant to hurt you.
Donna: I suppose I shouldnít have gotten so upset, but, oh. When I think of that hussy --
Michael: I know. But the secret's out now, ok? It's all behind us. The past canít hurt us. So you want to go upstairs?
Donna: The letter.
Michael: What? What about it?
Donna: The letter. Iris wants to see you!
Michael: Donna --
Donna: She's still after you! That's not in the past!
Michael: Donna Love Hudson --
Donna: That's happening right now!
Michael: I want you. I donít care about her. It's you I love, it's you I want, it's you I've got.
Donna: I just hope it's really over.
Michael: Ugh, you.
Man: Hey, lady! Know where a guy can get a decent room around this burg?
Liz: Russ! Oh, Russ, is it really you?
Russ: Oh, Liz, my God! Let me look at you! Look at you! You look great! You look wonderful!
Liz: Oh, Russ, it's been so long!
Russ: Oh, donít I know it, sweetheart, yes. Listen, take my word for it, it is great to be home.
Felicia: Honey, hi. I didnít hear you come home. What are you doing? What are you doing? Letters? From a guy who doesn't even make phone calls? You're now writing letters? What are these, Mitch? What?
Mitch: I want you to listen to me.
Felicia: Rachel, Matthew, Sam?
Mitch: There's something I want you to understand.
Felicia: What's going on? Tell me what's going on!
Mitch: Things are already stacked against you. You understand that, donít you?
Felicia: Things are rough, I know that!
Mitch: It's worse than rough!
Felicia: Cass is a very good lawyer! He's tired, that's all! You know he's tired!
Mitch: Look, I know he's a good friend of yours --
Felicia: He's under a lot of strain!
Mitch: Look, but it's been a long time since he's been in a courtroom.
Felicia: Oh, Mitch.
Mitch: Look, you're a celebrity. A jury loves to put it to somebody like you. They already think that life has been too good to you.
Felicia: Ok, what are you saying to me?
Mitch: What I'm saying is I want you to face the facts -- the cops have the gun that you used, that you admitted using!
Mitch: There are powder burns on your glove. They have a confession that you gave them.
Felicia: What are you saying to me?
Mitch: I'm saying I've already lost a son! I wasn't there to see him grow up because I believed in a jury to see the truth!
Felicia: Mitch, this is very different than that!
Mitch: Is it?
Felicia: Yes, of course it is!
Mitch: I lost a son! I donít want to lose my wife! Look, if the arraignment doesn't go well tomorrow, I want you to come with me.
Felicia: Come with you? Where?
Mitch: To Honduras. I want you to come to Honduras with me. They donít have an extradition treaty with the U.S. I've made arrangements. We can start a life there, but I want you to come with me.
