[Knock on door]

Lucas: It's open. Morning, Fanny.

Felicia: Good morning.

Felicia: So, this is what you call a breakfast meeting?

Lucas: Hmm. Mimosa?

Felicia: I donít think so.

Lucas: Cafe ole.

Felicia: I really shouldnít even be here, you know that.

Lucas: Why, doesn't Mitch trust you in my room?

Felicia: Donít start, ok? I came here to talk about our daughter and that's all.

Lucas: I remember a time when you'd risk anything, even your stepfather's temper so we could be together.

Felicia: I wasn't married then.

Lucas: We almost were.

Felicia: I -- I brought some notes we can go over.

Lucas: I was so crazy about that girl --

Felicia: Luke --

Lucas: Come on, now, donít you tell me that you donít think about what it would have been like sometimes.

Felicia: If you got me here under false pretenses, I swear to you, I'm going to leave right now.

Frankie: Morning, boss.

Cass: Good morning.

Frankie: Prune Danish. Catch.

Cass: Oh, sustenance -- oh!

Frankie: Did I get you?

Cass: No. I pulled a muscle in my back.

[Cass groans]

Frankie: Aw. Aw. Well, that's what happens when you're the sultan of stress.

Cass: Oh, sympathetic as usual, huh, Frankie?

Frankie: I feel responsible, so I'm going to give you an adjustment, ok?

Cass: Oh, no. No, no. No, thanks, Frankie, that's ok.

Frankie: It'll help, really.

Cass: Put my coat back on, please.

Frankie: Boss, this technique never fails, ok?

Cass: Are you kidding?

Frankie: I'm not kidding. Now, come on, lie down.

Cass: Oh.

Frankie: Come on. I got you, I got you.

Cass: I must be out of my mind to let you do this to me, Frankie. Let me go away, let me go away.

Frankie: Face down. Face down!

Cass: Are you trained for this?

Frankie: Sort of.

Cass: "Sort of"?

Frankie: Put out your arms -- ok, hold on.

[Cass groans]

Frankie: Oh -- oh, your back is full of knots. What's eating you?

Cass: Oh, nothing. Oh!

Frankie: Oh!

Cass: Ok, I'll talk! Just donít touch that spot again.

Frankie: Ok. What is it?

Cass: Stacey. She didnít go home last night.

Stacey: Good morning.

Derek: Morning.

Lucas: I'm sorry.

Felicia: You know, even if I did wonder about it, it doesn't mean you can go back. Besides, I mean, I donít even recognize either one of us now.

Lucas: That's true. When I first met you, you didnít even own a hat.

Felicia: You didnít own a suit -- or a reputation.

Lucas: Oh, but, Fanny, you're still so much the same. Every time I see you, I canít help but --

Felicia: Luke, we canít pick up where we left off.

Lucas: Why, because of Mitch?

Felicia: It's not -- it's not just because of Mitch. It's because of me. I'm a completely different person now.

Lucas: Well, not to me.

Felicia: What happened to us was totally unfair. But I canít make that up to you, not by turning my life around.

Lucas: Is that what I'm asking you to do?

Felicia: Isnít it?

Lucas: I donít know -- maybe. Come on, let's get something to eat.

Felicia: Besides, you know, I'm not the only one who's changed. Thank you.

Lucas: Fanny, 23 years ago when our baby was born, I let you go because I couldn't take care of you, or her.

Felicia: We were kids, Lucas. It wasn't your fault.

Lucas: Yeah, well, it feels like it. It's behind everything I've ever done. Everything.

Felicia: So does that mean that there's been some good that's come out of all this pain?

Lucas: You would say that.

Felicia: Well, you -- you were successful.

Lucas: So were you.

Felicia: Well, I wonít be if -- if I donít get back to the studio, ok?

Lucas: Ah, we were so very, very special. We had to be.

Felicia: I came here because I want to talk about our daughter and everything you found out, ok?

Lucas: Yeah. Unfortunately, not much. I've got Frankie working on those files we got from Palmer, but --

Felicia: That's good.

Lucas: She came up with nothing. What do you know about her, personally?

Felicia: She's persistent, I know that much.

Lucas: Is she married?

Felicia: No, I donít think so.

Lucas: I mean, where does she come from? Where did she -- where was she before she came here?

Felicia: Why are you asking me that?

Lucas: Because she'd probably tell you the truth. Most people do.

Felicia: Including you.

Lucas: Yeah.

Felicia: All right, then why are you so interested in Frankie Frame?

Lucas: Because she's got backbone and a pretty face. She reminds me of someone I used to know.

Felicia: You know, I was just thinking about your good friend Iris and what she'd think about your alliance with Frankie Frame.

Lucas: It's none of her business.

Felicia: Oh, really? Gee, I donít think Iris would feel that way about it.

Lucas: Iris knows the limits of our relationship.

Felicia: Limits? Uh-huh. I donít think that Iris likes the word "limits," especially when it comes to love.

Lucas: Who's talking about love?

Felicia: I think she'd like to be.

Lucas: Well, I hope for Iris' sake she isnít. I donít even know if I could love again.

[Cass groans]

Cass: Donít be fresh, Frankie. And be careful, will you?

Frankie: You should be grateful. I took my shoes off.

Cass: I am grateful.

Frankie: So, baby sister stayed out all night, huh?

Cass: Yes.

Frankie: I think that's great.

Cass: You would. And it's not great.

Frankie: Why not?

Cass: Ugh.

Frankie: I was beginning to think she was a candidate for the convent.

Cass: I happen to know that she was going to get hit with some bad news.

Frankie: Maybe she went out on a bender or something.

[Cass groans]

Frankie: It couldn't be the end of the world.

Cass: Ah -- oh, watch it, please, Frankie!

Frankie: Hey, do you want to come up here and do this? Ok.

Cass: Are you sure this is going to help?

Frankie: Of course it's going to help. Unless I screw up.

Cass: Oh! Oh! Oh!

Frankie: Oh, no, no, that's good, that's good, that's good. I think I felt something let go.

Cass: Oh, my God! Ugh!

Frankie: I hope that means you're going to relax about Stacey.

Cass: I will not relax about Stacey.

Frankie: Well, you should, you know, because I'm not always going to be here to do this for you.

Cass: Oh! Oh!

Frankie: And bad news or not, big brother, little sister's a big girl now.

Cass: But I donít want to talk about this anymore.

Frankie: Ok, fine. What do you want to talk about?

Cass: How about something novel, like work?

Frankie: Hmm. Suits me. Because believe it or not --

Cass: Oh.

Frankie: That's what I'm here for.

Cass: Oh. Have you gotten any more on Lucas?

Frankie: No, not directly, but a hunch is forming.

Cass: Oh, not another one.

Frankie: Yeah. I'm beginning to think he's the art thief.

Cass: Oh! Oh, that's the best one yet.

Frankie: Yeah.

Cass: That's really incredible.

Frankie: I told you I was good at this.

Cass: Let me up.

Frankie: Ok.

Cass: Let me up.

Frankie: Let me help you. How do you feel?

Cass: Fine, thanks.

Frankie: Good.

Cass: I canít get over it.

Frankie: Yeah. Me, either. But all the circumstantial stuff points to Lucas.

Cass: What stuff?

Frankie: Well, nobody can get a handle on this guy. His records are whitewashed. All I can find out about him is that he's a self-made man with the art collection of a dynasty.

Cass: Who told you that?

Frankie: Caroline.

Cass: She's seen his collection?

Frankie: Mm-hmm. Apparently, Lucas is known for it, and she said he put it together very quickly.

Cass: Oh, yeah?

Frankie: Mm-hmm.

Cass: How quickly?

Frankie: Too quickly. Want a Danish?

Cass: Yeah, donít mind if I do. Thanks.

Frankie: And, on top of all that --

Cass: Yeah?

Frankie: All of his friends are loaded -- Felicia, Rachel, Iris. And he claims to know Michael Hudson.

Cass: So Lucas is a high roller.

Frankie: I think he's more than that. Michael and Iris have both been hit with major losses, and their apartments showed no sign of a break-in.

Cass: What else?

Frankie: You need something else?

Cass: I'm getting to know you, Frankie. There's something else.

Frankie: Boss, the burglaries didnít begin until Lucas showed up in Bay City.

Cass: Well, you're right about one thing -- it's all circumstantial.

Frankie: That's all you can say?

Cass: Why would he steal from friends?

Frankie: Who says they're his friends?

Cass: And he's loaded. Why not buy whatever he wanted?

Frankie: Now, how do you know he's loaded? Have you seen his W-2? Maybe Lucas is financing his little tour of Bay City with stolen art.

Cass: Oh, Frankie, you've been doing too much late-night television. Stolen art is extremely difficult to unload.

Frankie: Not according to Caroline.

Cass: Well, it's a beginning, all right, but you still have to have some kind of proof.

Frankie: Yeah. I'll get it -- as soon as I get into his hotel room.

Cass: Have you gone off the deep end? Do you want to get arrested again?

Frankie: Has that ever stopped you?

Jamie: Oh, I'm sorry.

Frankie: Hey, cuz! How you doing?

Jamie: Hi. Good. Listen, I'll -- I'll wait outside.

Frankie: No, no, no. No problem. I was just leaving.

Cass: Find someone else to -- to bail you out, you --

Frankie: Oh, yeah, yeah.

Cass: You --

Jamie: Did I come at a bad time, Cass?

Cass: No, not at all. Uh -- what can I do for you? Sit down.

Jamie: Well, actually, I'm here to see Stacey.

Cass: Did she have an appointment with you?

Jamie: Yeah. Why, is something wrong?

Cass: I hope not.

Derek: Are you all right?

Stacey: I'm fine.

Derek: You sure?

Stacey: Mm-hmm.

Derek: No, I mean --

Stacey: I think so. Are --

Derek: I meant about last night.

Stacey: Mm-hmm. Are you?

Derek: If you are, I am.

Stacey: So is that a yes?

Derek: Yeah. I was just worried. Did I push you?

Stacey: No.

Derek: Well, if I knew how you felt, I wouldnít --

Stacey: Well, no, you couldn't have known how I felt. I never told you.

Derek: I can wait.

Stacey: I hope so.

Derek: I can.

Stacey: You know something?

Derek: What?

Stacey: I've been thinking about this for a long time.

Derek: You have?

Stacey: Mm-hmm. What it would feel like for you to hold me.

Derek: How does it feel?

Stacey: It feels wonderful.

Derek: But you're still scared, right?

Stacey: Hmm. You must really think that I'm crazy.

Derek: No. I think that you're honest. And I think that you're hurt.

Stacey: But not by you. Never hurt by you.

Derek: I want you to trust me.

Stacey: What I did last night -- it -- it wasn't because I didnít trust you.

Derek: Oh, I knew that when you stayed.

Stacey: You know, it's funny, I feel even closer to you now than if -- closer than if we --

Derek: Shh.

Stacey: That doesn't make too much sense, does it?

Derek: Why donít you stop worrying about what makes sense? Come on. I'm going to take you home.

[Light jazz plays]

[Sharlene sings quietly]

John: Hi.

Sharlene: Morning.

John: Thanks for letting me sleep late.

Sharlene: Well, just donít expect it every morning when we're married.

John: "Married." Boy, that sounds good.

Sharlene: Gee, I wonder if I'll ever get used to it.

John: What?

Sharlene: That we have forever.

John: Oh, I thought you meant being my wife.

Sharlene: My husband. Ooh.

John: Ooh -- that sound weird?

Sharlene: You're never going to say "my old lady," will you?

John: No, but I think "ball and chain" is in the realm of possibility.

Sharlene: I am lucky. I do know that.

John: No, I'm the lucky one.

Sharlene: No -- yes --

John: Yes.

Sharlene: You're lucky.

John: Let's face it, we're both lucky. I think that Josie ought to be the first one we tell.

Sharlene: Yeah. I just wish I knew when she was coming home.

John: Well, the important thing is we know where she is and that she's safe and that everyone knows the truth.

Sharlene: Including Russ.

John: Hey, Russ is not going to take Josie away from you. We wonít let that happen.

Sharlene: How can we stop it?

John: Josie will realize what she's giving up. She has a home here. We'll be her family.

Sharlene: John, you know, she did resent you before she left. Now she knows that Russ is her real father.

John: We'll just take it slow.

[Knock on door]

Sharlene: I've just -- I just want you to know I'm not sure she'll be too receptive.

John: Sharlene, we'll do it together.

Sharlene: Russ.

Russ: Good morning, Sharlene. I need to talk to you. It wonít take very long.

Sharlene: Is there a problem?

Russ: No, no, it's just that I've come to a decision I think you should know about.

Sharlene: What is it?

Russ: Well, when Josie returns from New York, I intend to ask her to move in with me.

Olivia: Will you stop? She's not late.

Matt: She's not late? Ok. Ok, she's late. It's official. She's late.

Olivia: What, by one minute? You canít stand it, can you?

Matt: No, I'm very prompt, Olivia.

Olivia: No, I mean being away from Josie.

Matt: No, I canít.

Olivia: It's nauseating. But I'm happy for you.

Matt: We have a lot of time to make up for, Olivia.

Olivia: I suppose.

Matt: I just wish she and Reuben would get here, you know?

Olivia: Reuben? You mean the guy she's been living with?

Matt: Right.

Olivia: I guess Josie must know him pretty well by now.

Matt: Yes, they came to New York together.

Olivia: Fascinating.

Matt: Hmm. He's a good guy. He's looked after Josie for a while now.

Olivia: Before New York?

Matt: Yeah, they used to live in the same boarding house back in Bay City.

Olivia: Her mother let her do that?

Matt: No, not -- they -- she left home.

Olivia: Before she came here?

Matt: Yes! What are you so nosy about? She wouldnít see or speak to anyone. Reuben looked after her. I owe him a lot.

Olivia: So Josieís pretty used to being on her own.

Matt: Yes, it hasn't been easy, though.

Olivia: Yeah, but she can do whatever she wants now. I mean, that's hard to give up.

Matt: Olivia --

Olivia: She'll lose her freedom if you go back to Bay City, Matthew. You both will.

Matt: Olivia -- Olivia, I am not running off with Josie and getting married. Yeah, you would think of something like that.

Olivia: You know, your mother and my father are going to have their say in everything you guys do.

Matt: Yes, they probably will.

Olivia: You guys have so much going for you right here in New York. I mean, why risk losing it?

Matt: Olivia, it wonít work. I'm going back to Bay City. Josieís going back to Bay City. We're both going back to Bay City together.

Olivia: I think you're making a big mistake.

Matt: Yes, and I think you just donít want to share your father with Josie.

Olivia: That's not what I'm talking about.

Matt: Isnít it?

Olivia: No, I was thinking about you.

Matt: And I'm thinking about Josie. I want her to get to know her real father.

Olivia: I see.

Matt: Besides, my family needs me now, too. They have a lot to deal with.

Olivia: Seems like we all do.

Matt: Yes, we do. You're not the only one. You and Josie could really help each other through this.

Olivia: You think so?

Matt: Yeah. Like sisters.

Olivia: Oh, you mean, you want me to help Josie?

Matt: Yeah, I think you could, a lot.

Olivia: All right, I will. I'll do everything I can to help Josie do what's best.

Reuben: So, like, poof -- all of a sudden, you got, like, an instant family now?

Josie: I have a father and a sister. I mean, can you believe it?

Reuben: And he's loaded, too. I mean, you're lucky, farm girl.

Josie: Dr. Matthews -- my -- my father. Oh, Reuben, he's so nice. Do you know that Matthew was named after him?

Reuben: Oh, yeah? Well, how's Matt doing?

Josie: He's -- he's terrific. He's -- he's wonderful.

[Reuben laughs]

Josie: Oh -- and he's expecting us at the spotlight club.

Reuben: Hold it, hold it, hold, hold, hold, hold. He's expecting us?

Josie: Uh-huh. He wants to thank you.

Reuben: Why?

Josie: Because! Matthew and I are in love, and we're never going to be apart again.

Reuben: All right, Josie, that's sweet and all, but --

Josie: No, Matthew would have never found me if it weren't for you.

Reuben: I really donít want to get involved in this, Josie.

Josie: Well, you are. I mean, I would have never lasted a second in this city. And, hey, you are the one that made me call Lilly Girard, right?

Reuben: Yeah. So you two lovebirds going back to Bay City?

Josie: Yeah, that's the plan.

Reuben: Oh. That's great. That's -- that's great. So I guess you're cutting out now, huh? You know, it's funny -- this is -- it's just like Cinderella or something.

Josie: Reuben, I -- I want you to come, too.

Reuben: I donít know about that. See, every time I look behind me, all I can see is my parole officer. I canít go back.

Josie: I'll talk to him.

Reuben: Josie --

Josie: No, no, no, Reuben, I'll tell him -- I'll tell him how much you helped me, and I'll tell him we were broke.

Reuben: Josie -- he's not going to listen to that, ok?

Josie: How do you know until you try? Reuben, I donít want to lose you.

Reuben: All right.

Josie: I canít -- I canít just leave you here, so please, will you think about it?

Reuben: Ok, I'll think about it, all right?

Josie: Good. So, are you ready?

Reuben: Yeah, yeah, I guess so. Let's see, I got my charm, got my personality, got my good looks. Yeah, I'm ready. Let's go.

Josie: Thanks.

Reuben: You're welcome, farm girl.

Josie: You know, I just realized something. You're my best friend. I've never had a best friend before.

Reuben: And you want to know something else? Neither did I.

John: Come on in, Russ.

Sharlene: You know, this is exactly why I was afraid to tell you you were her father. You're already putting yourself in charge.

Russ: No, no, I'm not. I'm simply trying to make up for lost time -- time that you deprived me of.

Sharlene: Have you told Josie about your idea?

Russ: No, not yet.

Sharlene: And you think she'll jump at the chance to live in your house on the hill, do you?

Russ: Oh, I certainly hope so, yes.

Sharlene: And suppose she hates that idea?

John: Josieís going to have to make her own decisions.

Russ: Well, John, for once I agree with you.

John: Well, good. Then let's get something straight.

Russ: What might that be?

John: Josie comes first. And in order for that to happen, we're all going to have to work together.

Russ: Wait a minute -- I really donít understand this "we" business. I intend to do everything I can for my daughter.

Sharlene: We know her, you donít.

Russ: And just whose fault is that?

Sharlene: It's partly yours, Russ. You know, you were not exactly open to me when I found out Josie was on the way. In a lot of ways, she's just like me. You think you can cope with that?

Russ: Oh, yes, yes. I wonít make the same mistakes with Josie.

John: Good. Because we'll be right behind you, making sure you donít.

Russ: You intend to tell me how to raise my daughter?

Sharlene: She's already raised.

John: If we have to, yeah.

Russ: Well, I donít understand how any of this concerns you, Hudson.

John: It is my concern, Russ. >From now on, I'm a part of Josieís life. You're going to have to accept that.

Cass: Yes, Mrs. Crackhauer, I know you're not used to being put on hold, but if you'll just bear with me for -- excuse me, Mrs. Crackhauer, donít hang up, please! Mrs. Crackhauer just hung up. Winthrop and Edwards. Winthrop and Edwards. No, Frankie Frame isnít here. I donít know. Her what is ready? Oh, yeah, donít worry, I'll tell her. Oh, man. That's it. I have reached a decision. I am going to murder Frankie right after I finish strangling my sister.

Jamie: Still no word, huh?

Cass: I'm sorry. You know, it's really not like her to miss an appointment.

Jamie: Can I make a phone call?

Cass: Yeah, sure. Why donít you use the phone in my office? That way you wonít hear me swearing from in there.

Jamie: I should let the hospital know that I'm going to be late.

Cass: Great, you'll still be here to stitch up Frankie and Stacey after I finish with them. There you -- I've been looking all -- calling all over for you!

Stacey: Oh, Cass, hi.

Cass: Hi.

Stacey: I was out.

Cass: "Out"?

Stacey: Yes, and I donít plan on explaining, so donít ask. By the way, did Mrs. Crackhauer call?

Cass: Um -- I'll explain that to you a little later. You're all right?

Stacey: Never better. I'll be in my office.

Cass: Uh, Stacey --

Stacey: Hmm?

Cass: If you change your mind and you need to talk, you can -- you can tell me anything.

Stacey: I can?

Cass: Yeah. And you donít have to pretend with me.

Stacey: Ok. Pretend what?

Cass: Well, when Derek was here the other day, he told me everything. It's ok --

[Door opens]

Stacey: Oh, hi. Hey, that was fast.

Derek: I hope you're hungry.

Cass: You two were together last night? Stacey, were you two -- were you two people together last night?

Jamie: I thought I heard your voice.

Stacey: Oh, Jamie! I'm sorry, I forgot. Oh, I forgot all about the appointment.

Jamie: Mm-hmm.

Stacey: Do you still have time?

Jamie: I cleared the morning.

Stacey: Oh, great.

Cass: I thought you were breaking things off.

Derek: So did I. It just didnít work out like that.

Cass: Oh, well, you're just full of surprises, aren't you?

Derek: Stacey -- look, you're busy, so I'm going to split.

Stacey: Are you sure you donít mind?

Derek: No. See you.

Cass: Excuse me.

Derek: Talk to you later.

Stacey: Yeah. I'll talk to you later. Bye. Jamie, we can use Cass' office.

Jamie: All right.

Cass: No. She wouldnít have. She couldn't have.

Felicia: Anyway -- oh -- you know, we might be reuniting lots of adoptive children to their natural parents.

Lucas: Right on your show?

Felicia: Yeah. I'm going to push the air date back. Maybe our daughter will be watching, I hope. I donít suppose I could get you to reconsider coming on?

Lucas: Oh, Fanny, we've been through all of this.

Felicia: I know. I know. I wonít ask again, I promise.

Lucas: You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to get in touch with some of my friends in Europe -- get them on this thing.

Felicia: You think she could be there?

Lucas: You know, at this point, I donít know.

Felicia: Oh, we really are flying blind, aren't we?

Lucas: I never thought it was going to be this tough.

Felicia: I want you to know that I'm glad that we're in this together.

Lucas: Me, too.

Felicia: Luke, we'll find her, I know we will.

Lucas: I had it all then, and I didnít even know it.

Felicia: You could try again. With somebody else, of course. The right woman.

Lucas: Oh.

Felicia: It makes me very sad when you say that you canít love again. Because I know better than anybody else how much you do have to give.

Lucas: To the right woman.

Felicia: I'm sorry. I really do have to go, ok?

Lucas: Ok, I'll walk you.

Felicia: No, you donít have to.

Lucas: I want to.

Felicia: Ok. Ok, come on.

Frankie: Come on, baby. Mama's got to get the goods.

Josie: Matt.

Matt: Hey.

Josie: Hi.

Olivia: Hi. You must be Reuben.

Reuben: Yeah, yeah. Hold it -- you must be that gorgeous half sister Olivia, right?

Olivia: Yeah, well, Reuben, I heard a lot of good things about you, too.

Reuben: Oh, yeah? And who told you that?

Olivia: Well, I donít know.

Reuben: Aha.

Olivia: Uh-huh.

Reuben: You kind of get the feeling that they want to be alone right now?

Matt: Oh, no, no, no. I'm sorry. We donít want you to go.

Reuben: Oh, really?

Matt: We were going to have a little celebration, yes?

Reuben: Oh, good. That's my specialty.

Josie: Oh, he's not kidding, either.

Matt: Hey, I want to thank you a lot. I know you bugged her night and day until she called me.

Reuben: Yeah, I just had to get her off my back, that's all.

Olivia: Huh, Matthew was so determined.

Reuben: Well, he had to be to get through that thick skull of hers.

Matt: Mm-hmm.

Olivia: Well, I'm just glad it all worked out.

Reuben: Yeah.

Josie: Oh -- and I have more good news. Reuben is going to come back to Bay City with us.

Reuben: No, no, no, no, no. I said I would think about going back to Bay City.

Josie: Reuben, come on. I canít lose my manager now.

Reuben: No, no, no. Besides, I got some other discoveries right here in New York, some other reasons why I just might want to stay here. Excuse me, if you will. Excuse me -- Tess?

Matt: I think I'll go grab a little ginger ale. Girls.

Olivia: You're lucky.

Josie: I know.

Olivia: He turned New York inside out to find you. He really loves you.

Josie: And I'm so in love with him.

Olivia: Yeah, I can tell. That's why I donít understand what you're doing.

Josie: What do you mean, what I'm doing?

Olivia: Going back to Bay City and risking everything.

Felicia: And I had to come and see you because you never come to see me.

Derek: Well, I was just working out and the place is --

Felicia: Oh.

Derek: Kind of a mess.

Felicia: No, it's all right.

Derek: If I'd known, I would have picked some things up.

Felicia: Honey, did you have a visitor here last night?

Derek: Yeah.

Felicia: I wonít say a word about it.

Derek: Good.

Felicia: Unless of course you'd like to tell me. I donít suppose guessing is allowed.

Derek: Fanny.

Felicia: Was it Stacey?

Derek: Look, can I fix you a protein drink? I'm going to have one.

Felicia: It was Stacey, wasn't it?

Derek: Yeah. But it's not what you're thinking.

Felicia: I wasn't thinking anything.

Derek: Sure you were.

Felicia: No. I wasnít. What is that?

Derek: Oh, it's some milk, an egg, and some protein.

Felicia: I thought you were going to break up with Stacey.

Derek: I changed my mind.

Felicia: Honey, I'm so glad, really.

Derek: We get along.

Felicia: She doesn't drink those, does she?

Derek: I donít know. I'll have to ask. We're real different.

Felicia: It doesn't matter.

Derek: Look, you know, I donít think Staceyís ready to get involved in a relationship with anybody.

Felicia: You're not just anybody.

Derek: You know, she's strange. It's like she's scared and she's brave at the same time.

Felicia: You know, I was talking to a friend of mine and he told me that he felt he lost everything when he lost the person that he loved even though it was a long time ago.

Derek: I'm sorry.

Felicia: I'm only telling you this because, well, you donít get many chances at love.

Derek: Love?

Felicia: I think what you have to do is you have to -- you have to nurture it. What you're feeling right now -- donít take that for granted, Derek. You found something that is so precious.

Derek: I know.

Felicia: You just grab on to it for as long as you can, no matter what.

Jamie: That stock thing was the last straw, Stacey. I mean, she actually tried to blackmail my mother -- that canít be legal, can it?

Stacey: Well, I'm sure she did a lot of things out of anger.

Jamie: Oh, I donít care why she did them. This is war!

Stacey: I'm sorry, Jamie, that it had to escalate to this.

Jamie: It didnít have to. She could've told me the truth, like you did.

Stacey: Jamie?

Jamie: I mean, when you got pregnant, you told me that -- that I wasn't the father, and I still wanted you.

Stacey: You're very sweet.

Jamie: I donít think Vicky would agree with that.

Stacey: I donít care. I'm just glad that we're still friends.

Jamie: You know, sometimes I think that you know me better than anyone.

Stacey: Well, I do know that you canít let your past ruin your future.

Jamie: You know, if she had just told me the truth, things might have been different.

Stacey: You're the only one who knows that.

Jamie: That's true. Things might not have been different at all.

Stacey: Well, people are who they are.

Jamie: Yeah. She could never be who you are, Stacey.

Stacey: Well, I'm --

Jamie: You know, sometimes I wonder if I really appreciated you and how special you are.

Frankie: Come on, baby. Come on.

Guard: Hold it right there!

Frankie: Hi! I know what this must look like, but the truth of the matter is I forgot my keys, you see, and I saw this in a movie once and -- no, no -- oh.

Guard: You'd better come with me.

Frankie: No, wait, wait, wait. Wait, let -- let me explain. Let go! You see, I have to get in there. My job -- my job depends on it, you see, and --

Cass: That's right, she does have to get in there. She's with me.

Guard: Who are you?

Cass: I'm bug man.

Frankie: Bug man.

Cass: Maybe you heard of me. I've been hired to rid this tower of vermin, of rats and roaches and anything else that crawls unseen through the walls and the underground passages. If it weren't for men like me, the world would be crawling with bugs. It would be the end of mankind. You have seen the "Helston Chronicles," haven't you? Hmm? Huh? Nothing stops me. Nothing gets in my way!

Frankie: Well, I think he's new here, bug man.

Cass: You were supposed to have this place ready for me!

Frankie: I know! I forgot my keys!

Cass: What? Do you realize that silverfish are probably crawling up through the floor as we speak? It's too late -- stand back!

Frankie: No, wait, stop, stop! Stop it! No, stop it! See, he just wouldnít let me in.

Cass: Oh, a wise guy, huh?

Guard: I made a mistake, bug man.

Cass: Yeah, a big one, yeah.

Frankie: Look, boss?

Cass: What?

Frankie: We're running out of time!

Cass: You're right. Stand back! We kill with skill -- ha! Die! Die! Die! Die! Die! That was the best I could come up with on such short notice. Get started, will you?

Frankie: You're awesome. You were awesome!

Cass: Where's Lucas?

Frankie: Uh, he's -- he's out with Felicia. I didnít know you had it in you, Cass.

Cass: So that means he's going to be back in a minute, right?

Frankie: Oh, boy. Wait till you get a load of this, bug man.

Cass: Would you cut that out?

Frankie: It's a file on the Coryís.

John: Hey.

Sharlene: Hi.

John: What's all this?

Sharlene: New curtains.

John: Oh, yeah? For where?

Sharlene: For Josieís bedroom. I want everything to be perfect when she gets home.

John: Uh-oh. Sharlene?

Sharlene: What?

John: Things aren't going to be perfect -- they canít be.

Sharlene: I can try.

John: No, listen to me.

Sharlene: John, I canít just give up and let Russ win.

John: Pretty curtains aren't going to do it.

Sharlene: Well, I donít know what else to do. She has to know that I want her here.

John: Then just keep telling her.

Sharlene: This was my way of telling her.

John: Look, Sharlene, you have to try to accept the fact that Josie may not approve of you or us. That has to be ok or she's never going to come home.

Sharlene: How do you know that, huh?

John: You may not believe this, but I used to be rebellious at her age.

Sharlene: No.

John: I got to ask you something.

Sharlene: What is it?

John: If Josie wants me gone --

Sharlene: John, donít say that.

John: No, I -- I have to. If she does, will you stand by me, by us?

Sharlene: John, we just agreed to spend the rest of our lives together.

John: I know. I know. But you may feel like you have to make a choice between me and your daughter.

Tess: Well, everyone here was really rooting for you.

Matt: Well, thanks a lot. I think it helped.

Reuben: Yeah, yeah. Now, see? There are a lot of good people right here in New York City.

Matt: Hey, I want to tell you, I really appreciate what you've done.

Reuben: Oh, come on. You're going to embarrass me, man. Why donít you save all that mushy stuff for Josie?

Matt: Yeah.

Reuben: Hey, we had a good time, we had a good summer.

Matt: Ok, is it ok if I thank you, then, you know?

Reuben: All right. You just take care of her, all right, man?

Matt: Thanks a lot. I will.

Reuben: All right.

Matt: I just hope those two can be friends.

Josie: Matthew and I aren't going to miss anything by going back to Bay City.

Olivia: Hmm. You donít know father.

Josie: I want to.

Olivia: Trust me -- he's very overprotective.

Josie: I think he's nice.

Olivia: He's really old-fashioned and strict. I mean, he thinks I'm still a child.

Josie: Does he say that?

Olivia: Yeah, all the time. And you know I had to run away just to audition for the ballet.

Josie: Yeah, I -- I know.

Olivia: And I never bring guys home anymore. He hates every one of them.

Josie: Well, he likes Matt.

Olivia: Hmm. So you'll probably get a 10:00 curfew.

Josie: Is that what you have?

Olivia: Mine are so embarrassing, I hardly ever go out.

Josie: Wow.

Olivia: You and Matthew are just getting started. I mean, you donít need parents wrecking things for you again.

Josie: No, but I donít think that Russ is going to --

Olivia: You know what I think you should do?

Josie: What?

Olivia: No, I shouldnít say anything. It's none of my business.

Josie: No, no, please. Hey, I mean, you are my sister.

Olivia: Well, as your sister, I think you should elope.

Olivia: So, was that your second or third piece?

Reuben: Hmm? Oh, who's counting? Oh. I guess you are, huh? Ok, all right. All right, I admit it -- it's my third piece. And it's cool, though, because I didnít eat no breakfast, all right?

Olivia: Well, it was nice of Lilly Gerard to send the cake.

Reuben: Yeah. All right, um -- if you guys want to take it home or something, that's cool. I can ask Tess to wrap it up for you. Hello? Hello?

Matt: Oh, um -- no -- no, thank you. You can finish it.

Olivia: Finish it?

Reuben: Finish it? Yo, even I canít finish it, man. Matt? Hello? Did you hear that? I think somebody's trying to give us a hint. Uh -- do you have anywhere you got to go?

Olivia: No, not really.

Reuben: Ok, well, I do. Do you mind if I escort you where I have to go?

Olivia: Oh, well, I'm sure Matthewís probably ready to go anytime.

Reuben: No, no -- he donít look like he's ready for nothing right now.

Olivia: Uh, Matthew? Hello?

Matt: Oh, bye.

Olivia: Bye.

Josie: Thanks for coming.

Reuben: Yeah, yeah. Ok, we're going to split, then, all right, guys? We'll -- we'll talk to you later. Ok. We're going. See you later.

Josie: Oh, I donít want to ever let go.

Reuben: Bye.

Josie: I'm so afraid I'll lose you.

Matt: You wonít, not ever.

Josie: How long has it been since I told you I loved you?

Matt: Oh. Five minutes.

Josie: That's much too long. I love you.

Matt: I love you.

Josie: And I want to be with you, like before.

Matt: Are you sure? Ok, let's go.

Singer: Say the word and I will follow you share each day with me each night, each morning.

Jamie: That'll be fine. Thank you very much. I'll be right over.

Stacey: Oh, Jamie. We can just finish up tomorrow.

Jamie: Well, what about tonight over dinner?

Stacey: Well, it's going to take me the rest of the day just to do the research on this case.

Jamie: Well, I was hoping for something a little more personal.

Stacey: Oh, I donít -- I donít know.

Jamie: Listen, donít -- donít decide now.

Stacey: Jamie --

Jamie: Thank about it and I'll call you later.

Frankie: Look at this. He's got articles on Samís work.

Cass: And here's press on the Cory Publishing takeover attempt and the anniversary party.

Frankie: Uh-huh. Notes on meetings with Iris, Rachel, Amanda? He had lunch with her.

Cass: A busy boy.

Frankie: Very taken with the Coryís.

Cass: Well, that makes sense, considering that he's advising Iris on "Sophisticate."

Frankie: Hey, does this make sense? An article mention of a red swan?

Cass: Let me see that. That's Rachelís piece. That was the last gift that Mac gave her.

Frankie: What's Lucas' connection?

Cass: Shh.

Cass: Hey!

Frankie: I think he left.

Cass: Shh.

[Water runs]

Frankie: I hear water.

Cass: Yeah, you're right. It's the shower.

Frankie: Well, I think we should go.

Cass: No. Let's hold on a while.
