Evan: Amanda? Amanda, donít be afraid. It's going to be all right.

Amanda: How can you say that? We are in the middle of nowhere. Nobody could find us even if they were looking.

Evan: Well, there's got to be a way. I'll find it.

Amanda: How? He's going to kill us! We are going to die!

Evan: No, he's not. I'm not going to let that happen to you, Amanda.

Sam: Whoa, whoa.

Sam: Ha! Ha! Ha!

Stacey: Hello.

Stacey: Well, we're going to enter your statement into evidence as soon as we begin our defense.

Derek: I'm listening.

Stacey: Well -- ahem -- in that case, the D.A. is probably going to challenge it, and we're going to need you in the courtroom to take the stand. Will you testify?

Derek: Yes.

Stacey: Thank you.

Derek: On one condition.

Cass: Mrs. Watts, shall I repeat the question?

Judge: The witness is instructed to answer.

Cass: What did Jason threaten to reveal? What about your past is so horrible that he could hold it over you like that? Mrs. Watts?

Sharlene: I was -- I didnít have -- there were -- there were certain things in my past I didnít want to talk about.

Judge: Mrs. Watts, this court has been patient, but there's a limit.

Sharlene: I'm sorry. It's just so hard.

Judge: I realize that. But as Mr. Winthrop told you, if you do not tell the court the nature of your brother's threat, I'll have the jury disregard your testimony.

Sharlene: I was --

Cass: Sharlene, I'm not here to torment you, believe me, but you testified about John Hudson, about his state of mind the night that your brother was killed. Now, we need to know. What did Jason threaten to tell him about you?

Sharlene: I was a prostitute.

[Gallery reacts]

Woman: What did she say?

Cass: What did you say?

Sharlene: I was a prostitute.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Evan: I'm not going to give up.

Amanda: I am facing reality.

Evan: You're facing Dustinís demented reality.

Amanda: He has us locked in this room! The next time he comes in this door, he is going to kill us!

Evan: Shh. Listen, there has got to be a way out.

Amanda: I canít stand this waiting.

Evan: Ok, ok, then let's not think about it. Think about other things. Think about something positive.

Amanda: Right, like what we have to live for.

Evan: That's it! That it! Now, just think about happy times.

Amanda: All right.

Evan: Come on! Ok, quick, quick, quick, quick. I want you to tell me, what's the happiest day in your life?

Amanda: The happiest day. The day I had Alli.

Evan: Yeah? Well, tell me about it.

Amanda: It's kind of hard to describe.

Evan: Oh, come on, I donít know anything about babies. Tell me everything.

Amanda: Ok. It was right after Sam was in the hospital, from his accident, but he was wonderful. I was scared, and I was happy. I wouldnít say it was easy, but I'll never forget Samís face or the way Alli looked the very first time I ever held her in my arms. Sam couldn't stop smiling.

Evan: Honey, what's wrong? What's wrong?

Amanda: Oh, I just realized that a mother should never be taken from her child.

Evan: I know. I know, Amanda.

Amanda: I'm never going to see them again.

Stacey: I think I know your condition. You want to feel protected, right, so that if the D.A. decides to prosecute you for something you did in your past. I wish I could promise you that, but I canít. If you take the stand, the D.A. has the right to ask you any question she considers relevant, including how you knew Felicia in the past, what you were doing at the party, the whole story. I'm sorry.

Derek: You donít have to be sorry.

Stacey: If the D.A. thinks she has cause, she can have you ordered into custody.

Derek: "Cause"?

Stacey: I'm sorry. If the D.A. thinks that there's evidence of a crime, then she can have you arrested. Look, if there's something that you want to tell me --

Derek: That wasn't my condition.

Stacey: It wasn't?

Derek: I donít like the idea of being in front of all those people, everybody staring.

Stacey: But you said that you'd help Felicia.

Derek: Yeah.

Stacey: Then I donít understand what your condition is.

Derek: Before I do what you want, I want to see Fanny alone.

Stacey: Alone?

Derek: Just us -- not her husband, not your brother, nobody else in the room.

Stacey: Ok, even if I can get Felicia to agree to this, I'm not sure that I can get her husband or Cass to. She was scared to death after all those things you did to her and -- all right, look, I have an idea. What about if it was just me in the room with the two of you and Cass or Mitch can be in the room next door? That way no one would worry.

Derek: You still donít trust me.

Stacey: You've always kept your word with me. It's just that the others donít understand you the way that I do. So what do you say? Can I be in the room with the two of you? Look, I'll stay as far away from you as you like. I donít even have to hear the conversation going on. Will it be ok?

Derek: Yeah.

Stacey: Good. And then after you speak to her, you will testify?

Derek: Yes.

Stacey: That's terrific. Ok. So now all I have to do is get Felicia to agree as well as Cass and Mitch.

[Gallery reacts]

[Judge pounds gavel]

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Order! We will have order in this court, please!

Cass: My God, Sharlene. I'm so sorry. I never expected --

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: I said I want order! If I have to, I'll clear this room!

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: I said I want order in this court! If I have to, I'll have this entire room cleared! Order! Ladies and gentlemen, order, please! Come to order!

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Ladies and gentlemen, order, please!

Matt: Josie, wait!

Josie: You were there?

Matt: Come on, you shouldnít be alone right now.

Josie: Leave me alone!

Matt: Josie, I love you! I want to be with you.

Reuben: Hold on, man -- what's the matter with you? Get off of her!

Matt: You donít understand!

Reuben: What's the matter with you, huh?

Judge: Mrs. Watts, would you like to take a short recess?

Sharlene: No.

Judge: Proceed, Mr. Winthrop.

Felicia: Donít. Please.

Cass: No further questions, your honor.

Judge: Redirect?

Morgan: Oh, yeah, just one brief question, if I may, your honor.

Judge: Very brief.

Morgan: Mrs. Watts, did John Hudson know about your past on the night in question, the night that Jason threatened to reveal it?

Sharlene: No, he didnít know.

Morgan: Thank you. No further questions.

Judge: The witness is excused. This court stands adjourned until 10:00 tomorrow morning.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Zack: What brought all this on?

Mitch: Nobody knew. No one expected that.

Cass: I canít believe this happened.

Felicia: There's no way that you could know, Cass. You did what you thought was right.

Cass: Yeah, and it worked. Boy, it definitely worked. John definitely has a motive now.

Zack: Assuming Jason told John about Sharleneís past.

Cass: Whether he did or not, it doesn't matter. If the jury thinks that Jason might have told John, that's enough.

Mitch: Come on, let's get out of here before the reporters start gathering.

Cass: Better take the side exit.

Felicia: Do you think I can talk to Sharlene?

Cass: No, honey. You're not allowed to talk to any witnesses.

Mitch: Come on.

Cass: Just go.

Frankie: Sharlene, are you ok? You need me to drive you home?

Sharlene: No, thank you.

John: Sharlene, I --

John: Sharlene?

Cass: John, I had no idea.

John: A little late for apologies, isnít it, counselor?

Julie Ann: I never would have thought that Sharlene --

Cass: Well, everyone knows now.

Zack: Hey, man, you're not responsible for what Sharlene was.

Cass: Thanks for the words, Zack, but they donít help right now.

Zack: But you might have helped your client.

Julie Ann: Your friend.

Cass: It's just that I like John and Sharlene. They're good people.

Rachel: Are you all right?

Russ: It's all starting all over again, just like it did before.

Frankie: Winthrop? Winthrop! Who the hell do you think you are?

Matt: Let me go! Josie just found out her mother was a hooker. She needs help.

Reuben: I didnít know that. Nobody told me that.

Matt: Ok, well, now you know it.

Reuben: All right, well, let's go get her!

Matt: Well, go!

Mac: Matthew, what's wrong?

Matt: Listen, Mac, I have to get over to the Frame farm. Josie was in the courtroom just now.

Mac: Oh, no.

Matt: She heard it all.

Mac: Look, I'll tell my driver to drive you out there. I'll go with you if you like.

Matt: No, no, no, no, no. I have my jeep, and besides, I donít think she'll like a lot of people around. I'm not sure she's even going to want to talk to me.

Mac: All right, call me if I can do anything.

Matt: Ok, thanks.

Rachel: Mac, Russ is still in there. I think we ought to offer him a ride. What's the matter?

Mac: Matthew just ran out after Josie. She was in there.

Rachel: Oh, no. Poor girl.

Mac: Yes. A lot of damage done in there today, and I donít know if it's ever going to be repaired.

Amanda: Ok, now it's your turn. What was the happiest day of your life?

Evan: Oh, that's easy. That was the day I doubled my money in one move.

Amanda: Really? While you were on Wall Street?

Evan: Yeah, see, we heard that this takeover was coming, but we didnít know it was going to happen. And when they announced it, the stock doubled, and, wham, I had stock, I had stock options, I was loaded to the nines. It was great!

Amanda: How did you know?

Evan: Well, there's a tape that you read, and as it was going by -- I just realized something.

Amanda: What? What's wrong?

Evan: That wasn't the happiest day of my life.

Amanda: You sounded so sure.

Evan: Well, it used to be, but I guess used-to-be's donít count anymore. The best day was when this someone reached out to me.

Amanda: I donít understand.

Evan: Well, when you've lived life the way I have, you kind of -- all you really think about is yourself. And then suddenly you meet somebody that is just so open and giving, and they take the time to care about you because you need help.

Amanda: Who are you talking about?

Evan: I'm talking about you. You remember when you came over to my apartment after Megan died? Remember, the lady that raised me?

Amanda: Yeah. That was the --

Evan: That was a very special day to me, because you were there and you cared about me.

Amanda: I donít know what to say.

Evan: You donít have to say anything. I just want you to know how much that meant to me.

Amanda: You're a really strange man sometimes.

Evan: Am I?

Amanda: Sometimes.

Dustin: Well, it's nice to see you two lovebirds looking so chipper. I'm afraid it's time to go.

Sam: Ha! Ha! Ha!

Frankie: What gives you the right to ruin somebody's life?

Cass: I'm tired. I have a lot to do before tomorrow.

Frankie: Oh, my heart bleeds. You think you had a hard day? How do you think my aunt feels right now?

Zack: Excuse me --

Frankie: When I want your two cents, I'm going to ask for it, ok?

Cass: Zack, you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Frankie Frame, have you? Ms. Frame, this is one of my partners, Zack Edwards.

Frankie: I said, how do you think my aunt feels right now?

Zack: A lawyer's responsibility is to defend his client.

Frankie: And I told you I'm talking to Winthrop.

Zack: Try and remember who called the witness to the stand in the first place -- not Cass.

Frankie: From what I understand, you two were all over my Uncle Jasonís back before he was shot. You were trying to ruin him!

Zack: Look, now, wait, Ms. Frame --

Cass: Zack, I appreciate you running interference for me, but let me talk to her. Maybe that way she'll leave us alone.

Zack: Ok. Good luck.

Julie Ann: Hey, Zack, who is that?

Zack: Sharleneís niece.

Rick: Not too friendly, is she?

Zack: Yeah, she's not a good candidate for Miss manners, no.

Julie Ann: Well, Cass seems really upset.

Zack: Yeah, he is. He doesn't like to see Sharlene get hurt like that.

Cass: Look, it's my responsibility to defend my client.

Frankie: No matter who it hurts?

Cass: I know you've got me pegged for the villain here, but I'm not.

Frankie: Oh, no? Who was that who forced my aunt to say things up there that she obviously didnít want to say?

Cass: I donít want to discuss this with you anymore.

Frankie: Oh, fine by me. But let me tell you something, Winthrop.

Cass: I canít wait.

Frankie: You're going to be so sorry you ever met me.

Cass: Oh, believe me, I already am.

John: Sharlene, I --

John: Why, Sharlene? Why?

Russ: Why, Sharlene?

Sharlene: I'm sorry, Russ.

Russ: How could you keep something like this from me?

Sharlene: No, I didnít think you'd understand.

Russ: Oh, I understand. I understand. You slept with anybody for money!

Sharlene: No, not anybody, not anybody!

Russ: Oh, just the ones with a lot of money, that had --

Sharlene: No, no, it wasn't like that! No!

Russ: And did you marry me for money?

Sharlene: No, I love you! No!

Russ: If you loved me, then why weren't you honest with me? After all this time, I never knew, Sharlene! I never knew what you did with other men for money!

Sharlene: No!

Russ: You are a whore, Sharlene! That's what you are!

Sharlene: No --

Russ: A whore!

John: You lied to me.

Russ: And a liar! But why me?

John: You lied to me.

Russ: Why?

John: How could you do this? Why did you do this to me?

Russ: You are a whore.

John: How many were there, Sharlene?

Russ: How many men were there, Sharlene?

John: How many were there? You lied!

Russ: How many? Tell me, you canít tell me.

John: You whore! How many were there?

Russ' voice: You canít even think of their names!

Johnís voice: Tell me, Sharlene!

Russ' voice: You are a whore!

Johnís voice: How could you do this?

Russ' voice: That's what you are!

Sharlene: No! No!

Singer: See her as she flies golden sails across the sky close enough to touch but careful if you try though she looks as warm as gold the moon's a harsh mistress the moon can be so cold once the sun did shine an l lord, it felt so fine the moon, a phantom, rose through the mountains and the pine and then the darkness fell the moon's a harsh mistress

Sharlene: I was a prostitute.

Singer: It's hard to love her well I fell out of her eyes I fell out of her heart

Sharlene: I was a prostitute.

Singer: I fell down on my face yes, I did, and I tripped and I missed my star

Sharlene: I was a prostitute.

Singer: And I fell and fell alone the moon's a harsh mistress

Sharlene: You were all over him! You were acting like a whore!

Singer: The sky is made of stone

Josie: I donít want to end up unhappy and alone, mama. I donít want to end up like you.

Sharlene: Donít you talk to me like that!

Singer: The moon's a harsh mistress

Sharlene: I was a prostitute.

Singer: She's hard to call your own

Felicia: It's just that pain on her face. Oh, how I wish none of this had ever happened.

Mitch: But it did, and Cass was right by pursuing it.

Felicia: It just wasn't right.

Mitch: You know, he didnít know that it was going to turn out that way.

Felicia: All Sharlene was trying to do was help John.

Mitch: Well, my main concern right now is the jury.

Felicia: Cass says the jury's going to have to seriously consider John as a suspect.

Mitch: Maybe, or maybe they'll just turn against Cass.

Felicia: Because of the way he treated John and Sharlene.

Mitch: That could be. I donít know.

[Phone rings]

Felicia: I'll get it. Hello.

Stacey: Hello, Felicia. It's Stacey. I'm here with Derek, and he's agreed to testify.

Felicia: Oh, Stacey, that's wonderful news. Derek has agreed to testify.

Stacey: He does have a condition. He wants to talk to you.

Felicia: Talk to me?

Stacey: Something private.

Felicia: I donít understand.

Stacey: And he only wants you and I in the room with him when he's there.

Felicia: Why?

Stacey: He doesn't want anyone else around. Otherwise, it's no deal.

Felicia: But just you --

Stacey: Listen, Mitch or Cass can be in the room next door, but he wants to see you alone.

Mitch: What's going on?

Felicia: Derek wants to talk with me, but just with Stacey in the room, no one else.

Mitch: No.

Felicia: Honey, this man's testimony could save my life.

Mitch: This is also somebody that's tried to scare you half to death. What sort of man is he? No.

Stacey: Felicia? Listen, it's his only condition. Do you agree? Felicia?

Felicia: All right, Stacey, I'll meet with him.

Mitch: Felicia?

Felicia: When will you both be here? In, what, about an hour?

Stacey: That'll be fine. Thanks, Felicia. Bye-bye. She's agreed. It's just going to be Felicia and me in the room with you.

Mitch: I'm telling you, meeting alone with him is not safe.

Felicia: Honey, you'll be right in the next room.

Mitch: And what if that's not enough? This is somebody that's tried to hurt you.

Felicia: No. He scared me, but he's never really hurt me, and he's had a chance to do that and he just never did.

Mitch: I'm telling you, I donít like it.

Felicia: Honey, I need his testimony.

Mitch: I'd like to know what he's up to.

Felicia: Well, Stacey trusts him.

Mitch: But I donít.

Felicia: Darling, listen to me. What choice do we have? He can tell the jury what happened after I fainted that night. He took my gun. The gun that I had is not the gun that killed Jason, and he's the only one who can prove that.

Mitch: And how do you know what he's going to say on stand? I mean, it's not like this guy's the most predictable person in the world.

Felicia: What do you mean?

Mitch: I mean, what if he's crazy? What if he's just some fan?

Felicia: Honey, he can tell the jury that when the police found me I wasn't with the right gun. That would be helpful, wouldnít it?

Mitch: Yes, ok. Ok, I'm going to be in the other room. If anything happens, one sound, and I am in here. I am going to be on top of him.

Felicia: Ooh. My hero.

Mitch: That's not funny.

Felicia: I know it's not. But I love you.

Mitch: Just tell me, why does he want to be alone with you?

Felicia: Stacey wasn't clear about that. I wonder what he does want to talk to me about.

Liz: So it happened. Sharlene has finally told the whole world what she's done.

Rachel: I wonder how John is handling it.

Mac: And Josie was in the courtroom.

Russ: Oh, no.

Liz: Well, if Sharlene had been truthful with her daughter, she wouldnít have had to face her today. But how do you tell your daughter you were once in the gutter?

Russ: Liz, stop it!

Liz: What?

Russ: Look, I donít want to hear another word about Sharlene.

Evan: Dustin, this isnít going to work out.

Dustin: Please, donít give me a "you'll never get away with this" routine.

Evan: Her father's well connected.

Dustin: Shut up, Bates. Shall we go?

Evan: Where?

Dustin: The woods.

Evan: Why should we make it so easy for you?

Dustin: It'll be a nice day for you two to be outside. Spring day, flowers, trees, birds. Start walking.

Russ: Not another word about Sharlene.

Liz: No. No, of course not.

Mac: Liz, why donít we rustle up some coffee for everyone?

Liz: What?

Mac: Coffee.

Liz: Oh. Yes, of course.

Rachel: Are you all right?

Russ: Yes, yes, I'm all right.

Rachel: Liz is tactless, but she doesn't mean to upset you.

Russ: I know. I shouldnít have snapped at her. I'm not angry with her.

Rachel: Who are you angry at?

Russ: Myself, and Sharlene.

Rachel: Why?

Russ: All day in that courtroom, I've been thinking about all those years that we just threw away!

Rachel: Russ, that's over with now. It's in the past.

Russ: You know, the funny thing is I still donít -- I donít understand why.

Rachel: Why what? Why she did it in the first place or why she didnít tell you?

Russ: Why she never told me. And she never would have if Willis hadnít. She lied to me all those years, and then she just ran.

Rachel: Russ, you've got to just drop it.

Russ: You see, something else I realized today, after all this time. I am still connected with Sharlene!

Rachel: What are you talking about?

Russ: Well, because I am still angry and I am still hurt. We never dealt with it. I mean, she just lied to me like that and then left. What I canít really figure out now is why the hell I still care!

Rachel: Well, I think that's a big subject, and I donít think you and I have the time right now to get involved with it.

Russ: No, I'm sorry. I must have taken you out of your way. You certainly must have things to do.

Rachel: I do. I have a meeting across town that I canít miss.

Russ: Well, I'm sorry.

Liz: Here's your coffee, nice and hot. Black for you, Rachel?

Rachel: Yes.

Russ: Liz -- oh, dear.

Liz: Oh, I'm sorry.

Rachel: It's all right, it's all right.

Russ: I have to apologize to you. I'm sorry I snapped at you like that. It's just --

Liz: Oh, no --

[Doorbell rings]

Liz: No, it's all right. We have to keep our heads. Excuse me.

Matt: Hi, Aunt Liz. Mom, Mac, she's gone. She never went home.

Rachel: Who?

Matt: Josie. I've been looking for her all day. I'm afraid something has happened to her.

Morgan: Is there something you wanted?

Frankie: Maybe.

Frankie: You saw me and Winthrop going at it?

Morgan: Yes, I did. You certainly didnít mince words.

Frankie: I'm going to lay my cards on the table with you. Jason Frame was my Uncle. He was murdered. I want to see justice done.

Morgan: So do we all.

Frankie: Are we having a conversation here, or am I going to talk to the top of your head?

Morgan: I'm sorry.

Frankie: Look, I've watched you, and you're sharp, but this Winthrop is a smooth operator. He might get this jury to buy his version of the truth.

Morgan: I donít think so.

Frankie: Look, but my point is I want to help. I'm a P.I. I've worked on actual cases --

Morgan: Ms. Frame --

Frankie: Ok, they may not have been actual murder cases, but -- this time I'll work for free.

Morgan: I think we have all the professional help that we need.

Frankie: Oh, donít give me that. Your office is swamped with cases. Odds are you didnít even do half your homework when it comes to witness checks, right?

Morgan: We did what we could.

Frankie: I need to help. Jason and Sharlene are my family.

Morgan: All right. This is a list of the witnesses that Cass plans to call.

Frankie: Good. I'll start at the top, one by one. Hmm. Mitch Blake.

Stacey: Mitch, this is Derek. Derek, Mitch.

Mitch: Derek.

Stacey: Is Felicia in the bedroom?

Mitch: Yeah. Come on in.

Stacey: Ok.

Mitch: So, Derek, what is this meeting all about?

Stacey: I promised I wouldnít pry. Felicia agreed to this deal, Mitch.

Mitch: Derek, I'm going to be in the next room. Donít try anything.

Stacey: Maybe we should get this whole thing going now.

Mitch: I'll tell her you're here. I donít like it.

Felicia: Hello.

Derek: Fanny.

Felicia: I'm glad you came.

Derek: So am I.

Felicia: I'm Felicia Gallant.

Derek: You're Fanny.

Felicia: You're right, I am, or at least I was a long time ago. You know, it's funny, when you change your name you sort of assume that it's always been yours.

Derek: I'm Derek.

Felicia: Yes, I know. Can I offer you anything?

Derek: No, thanks.

Felicia: I want to thank you for agreeing to testify. Stacey said that you've been very helpful.

Derek: I'd do anything to help you.

Felicia: Well, that's very nice. Thank you for that. It's not very often that someone shows that kind of interest, especially when someone's in as much trouble as I am. There's so many things I really want to ask you, I -- but I promised I wouldnít, although I have wondered about you so often. I'm sorry, Derek. I'm sorry. It's just that you frighten me just a little. Did you want to meet me before you testified? Is that it? Or maybe there's something that you'd like to tell me.

Derek: No.

Felicia: That means that -- that you will testify tomorrow, then?

Derek: Yeah.

Stacey: Mitch? Mitch, we're going to leave now. So we'll see you when Derek testifies in court?

Mitch: Right.

Felicia: Derek, I'm so glad you came by. It was really very nice to meet you.

Derek: Goodbye.

Mitch: Are you upset?

Felicia: I'm all right. I -- I'm a little shaken. I guess seeing him face to face --

Mitch: What did he want?

Felicia: I donít know. He didnít say.

Mitch: That's strange.

Felicia: I know. You know what's so odd? He seemed hurt, disappointed.

Stacey: Hey, are you ok? What is it? Is something wrong?

Derek: She didnít even remember me.

Evan: Ok, listen, Dustin, let's make a deal. You can kill me, you can do whatever you want, but let Amanda go. I mean, you donít want to kill your wife for the second time, do you?

Dustin: This isnít about Julia.

Amanda: You did kill her, didnít you?

Dustin: It was an accident. It wasn't supposed to happen. All I wanted was her love. Yeah, she pretended to care, but it was a lie!

Amanda: But the pain that you're feeling isnít going to go away by killing us, Dustin.

Dustin: She was the most beautiful woman. I could have spent the rest of my life with her. It would have been so perfect. But she didnít love me the way I loved her. It all happened so fast. We were fighting. I -- I hit her.

Amanda: Look, Dustin, let us go, please. For my baby's sake, please?

Dustin: Amanda, I'm sorry. You'd be so easy to love. But Julia taught me that love doesn't exist. The only thing that's real and that lasts is money.
