Rachel: Donna, this is not a very convenient time for me.

Donna: Yes, I know. I saw you're about to have a little cozy barbecue.

Rachel: Family dinner.

Donna: Yes, family. Very nice.

Rachel: If you would like to come back tomorrow --

Donna: No, this canít wait.

Rachel: What is it?

Donna: I want to talk about family, too, Rachel. Whether you like it or not, you and I are connected.

Rachel: Through Steven.

Donna: Exactly. And we're going to be connected for the rest of our lives.

Rachel: I realize that, Donna.

Donna: So for Stevenís sake, I want to get a few things straight right now.

Evan: Amanda? Amanda?

Sam: What are you doing here?

Evan: Oh, excuse me. I was looking for Amanda, and this painting caught my eye.

Sam: It's not finished yet.

Evan: I know, but it's really very good.

Sam: I donít like people looking at my work before it's finished.

Evan: Well, I'm sorry about that. It's just that you really captured her --

Sam: Like I said, I donít like people to look.

Evan: What do you mean, you donít like them looking at Amanda or the painting?

Sam: What?

Evan: Well, if you donít want people looking at Amanda, why bother paint her at all?

Matt: Ok, time to put the chicken on, grandma.

Ada: No! No! You canít put the chicken on! The coals are not white enough.

Matt: The stuff is burning, for crying out loud! What more do you want?

Ada: I own a restaurant! I know what I'm talking about!

Matt: Jamie!

Ada: You canít put chicken on until the coals are white!

Matt: Would you please tell grandma it's time to put the chicken on?

Ada: Ugh, kids! Get away!

Amanda: Oh, grandma, he's probably just hungry, that's all.

Ada: Nobody is hungry enough to eat raw chicken. The coals are not hot enough. They have to be white.

Matt: Sam says they're supposed to be red. I'm going to get him.

Amanda: Wait, I'll go get him.

Ada: Hey, guard this with your life.

Jamie: Yes, ma'am.

Ada: I've got to go see if the corn is here yet. Donít go near it.

Jamie: Stop harassing your grandmother, all right?

Cass: Hey, Ada, how's it going?

Ada: Donít ask.

Jamie: Hold that.

Matt: Thank you.

Cass: Hey, Jamie.

Jamie: Oh, hey, I'm glad you could make it.

Cass: Well, I had to press the issue, but, yeah, we did make it. Excuse me, I donít want to break this up. So how's it going there, Matthew?

Matt: Aha, the unsilent majority. Are the coals supposed to be red or not?

Cass: I always thought charcoal was black.

Matt: Oh, you're a big help.

Jamie: I understand that Derek was arrested.

Stacey: He was denied bail. I couldn't believe it.

Jamie: I'm sorry to hear that. You must be very upset.

Stacey: He's innocent, Jamie. You have to believe that.

Jamie: Yeah, ok.

Stacey: He didnít steal the red swan. He doesn't deserve to be in prison.

Derek: Back off, Steel.

Steel: You going to make me, or you just going to stand there and flap your lips?

Derek: I said back off, Steel.

Steel: Why should I?

Derek: You're not going to hurt this kid.

Steel: Like I said, he needs some lessons.

Derek: You looking for trouble?

Steel: No, Scarface, you're the one that's doing that, and it's coming your way.

Felicia: Hello, Vicky.

Vicky: Felicia.

Felicia: Can I get you a table? Are you all right?

Vicky: Oh, everything's great.

Felicia: Is it?

Vicky: Just dandy. They took my baby away from me.

Felicia: Yes, I know, I heard.

Vicky: I'm sure you were tickled to death.

Felicia: No, I wasnít.

Vicky: You must have got out your embossed stationery and dashed off a letter to Lisa right away.

Felicia: Vicky, please donít do this.

Vicky: "Hey, Lisa, great news -- Vicky finally got hers."

Felicia: I haven't talked to anybody about this -- not Lisa, not anybody.

Vicky: Well, you always said Jamie and I wouldnít work out. So here's to the one who was right. How does that feel, Felicia, to be right? I'm a little rusty.

Felicia: Ok, ok, I admit it, I never thought that you and Jamie would be a good couple.

Vicky: And now it's time to gloat.

Felicia: Hey, I want you to listen to me. It doesn't matter what I thought. You and Jamie have a beautiful baby boy, and I feel very badly about that because no mother should be separated from her baby, not ever.

Iris: Well, I donít see why we had to come here.

Lucas: Iris, you donít have to stay.

Iris: Are you implying that I invited myself to dinner?

Lucas: No, I'm not implying it, I'm saying it flat out.

Iris: Well, you agreed to it, so the least you could do is take me somewhere decent.

Lucas: This is a decent restaurant.

Iris: Yes, if rare sirloin and onion rings are your idea of cuisine.

Lucas: My name is Lucas. I'll be a party of two instead of one.

Iris: I hear the best of the wine list boasts a wine from Idaho. Thank you.

Lucas: Are you going to do this all evening?

Iris: Probably.

Lucas: Well, I've made my decision. I'm eating here, and I would like to think that I'm going to share my dinner with someone I enjoy being with.

Iris: Yes, and I think I know exactly who that is.

Rachel: Donna, if this is about Jamie not letting Vicky see Steven this afternoon --

Donna: It wasn't a very good beginning, was it?

Rachel: I'm sorry it turned out that way.

Donna: No, you're not sorry.

Rachel: The judge was very specific about the visitation rights.

Donna: Yes, she was very specific. Was she another family friend of yours?

Rachel: No, she wasn't, but I think her judgment was very fair. Vicky gets to see the baby 50% of the time.

Donna: And Jamie has sole custody. Is that supposed to be fair?

Rachel: I think that's what the judge wanted.

Donna: I donít give a damn what the judge wanted, Rachel! I'm trying to talk to you as a mother!

Rachel: Meaning?

Donna: Meaning that the main issue here is to see that Steven doesn't get hurt, at least as little as possible.

Rachel: I agree.

Donna: And just because the marriage fell apart, it doesn't mean that our two families have to become an armed enemy camp.

Rachel: Of course they donít.

Donna: Well, then what are you doing?

Rachel: What do you mean, what am I doing? The decisions about Steven are up to Jamie.

Donna: Rachel, please.

Rachel: What?

Donna: Jamie deliberately planned to take Steven away from Victoria, and you backed him every step of the way.

Rachel: I'm his mother. Of course I would.

Donna: And today, when Victoria tried to come in here asking to see her baby, your clan closed ranks and shut her out, with your blessing!

Rachel: These decisions are Jamieís, Donna.

Donna: Rachel, I just said I'm trying to talk to you as a mother about children. Do you think it's right to keep a mother from seeing her sick child?

Rachel: First of all, the baby isnít that sick. He's got a little cold. He's fine.

Donna: I asked you if you think it's right. Where's your heart, Rachel? What's happened to you?

Sam: Now, what kind of remark is that?

Evan: A simple enough statement.

Sam: Humor me. What do you mean, I shouldnít paint a portrait of my wife?

Evan: Well, you're just very protective of her.

Sam: Yeah, with good reason.

Evan: Well, what I meant to say -- if you donít want people looking at her, and once you paint her, the whole world is going to admire that painting.

Sam: Yeah, well, donít lose any sleep over it.

Evan: Unless you're going to put it away in some attic somewhere.

Amanda: What Sam does with my portrait is none of your business. Sam, grandma and Matthew are arguing over the charcoal. They've agreed to use you as an arbitrator.

Sam: That will wait.

Amanda: I donít think so. Grandma thinks that Matthewís getting kind of an attitude. We may not have chicken at all. It's all right, I'll be out really soon. Mom asked me to talk to Evan.

Sam: Sure. Why not?

Evan: So Rachel sent you looking for me?

Amanda: I think that we should continue working together on the circulation review.

Evan: Is that what you want, or does she?

Amanda: It was Mom's idea, but I think it's a good one. We work well together.

Evan: Sometimes.

Amanda: We need you at Cory. We really do.

Evan: Sometimes, things get in the way, Amanda.

Amanda: I promise I will not let my feelings interfere. So we'll start working together again tomorrow, all right?

Evan: Ok.

Amanda: Good. Thank you. Excuse me.

Evan: Hold it. There's something that the both of us really need to talk about.

Amanda: What?

Evan: Vicky.

Vicky: You donít think they should've taken Steven away from me?

Felicia: No, I donít.

Vicky: I'm surprised to hear that from you.

Felicia: I had a daughter taken from me at birth. I was told she was born dead. When I found out about it a few months ago, well, it -- it made me change how I feel about a lot of things.

Vicky: So you didnít know you had a child all this time, and --

Felicia: And now she's a grown woman. I'm trying very hard to find her.

Vicky: I'm sorry.

Felicia: See? What you just did, instinctively -- that's exactly my point.

Vicky: What?

Felicia: A mother understands how another mother feels. Believe me, I know how badly you're hurting.

Vicky: Well, I guess one good thing is that until a few months ago, you didnít know what you had lost.

Felicia: Actually, I did.

Vicky: When you carry a child, give birth to it, love it, and nurse it, and then they take it away --

Felicia: Oh, Vicky. I really wish there was something that I could do to help you.

Vicky: I had told myself I was going to stop this.

Felicia: No, no, it's ok.

Vicky: I never thought you would understand me. Excuse me.

Felicia: Ok.

Iris: I spoke to Mitch last night.

Lucas: Did you?

Iris: Yes, he said he's going to be gone for at least another two weeks.

Lucas: I know.

Iris: I'll bet.

Lucas: What does that mean?

Iris: Well, wasn't that the reason for this cozy little dinner for one at Feliciaís restaurant?

Lucas: I thought you were going to give that up.

Iris: Sorry, I'm just not used to being taken out to dinner and my escort's scouting another woman.

Lucas: For one thing, dinner with me was your idea.

Iris: And I'm beginning to regret that.

Lucas: And for another thing, if I want to see Felicia with or without Mitch, on any terms at all, that's my affair.

Iris: Bad choice of words.

Felicia: Hello. It's good to see you.

Lucas: It's good to see you.

Felicia: Is everything satisfactory?

Iris: Mm-hmm, ducky. Couldn't be better.

Matt: Ah, that's it.

Ada: What do you think? Why is your daddy the best barbecue chef in the whole world? Why?

Matt: Because he knows how to grill chicken without burning it, that's why.

Sam: Donít believe them, Alli. They're just playing dumb so I get to do all the work.

Ada: Isnít it time to put the barbecue sauce on?

Matt: Yes.

Sam: No! Donít touch my barbecue sauce. It'll burn.

Ada: Well, donít you have to let it soak or something like that?

Sam: It doesn't soak, Ada, it coats. You coat it.

Ada: Whatever. Isnít it time to put the barbecue sauce on?

Sam: No.

Matt: I am so glad you came.

Josie: Me, too. This place is so beautiful.

Matt: Yeah, it's nice. So, you want some iced tea?

Josie: Oh, yeah, I'd love some.

Matt: Ok, right this way.

Cass: Excuse me. Thank you.

Matt: Certainly. Ok. One glass for you, madam. So, how's it going with Russ?

Josie: We're getting to know each other. Thanks.

Matt: Must be kind of different living with a father.

Josie: Yeah, as a matter of fact, we had a little talk right before I came over here.

Matt: Is there a problem?

Josie: He feels that Reuben isnít the right company. I donít understand. Do you?

Cass: Hey, I got you some iced tea. The least you could do is smile. Stace?

Stacey: Hmm? I'm trying. I really am.

Cass: You're such a party animal, Stace. You canít sit around here all evening thinking about Derek.

Stacey: Cass, I agreed to come, but I didnít agree to stop worrying about Derek.

Cass: Ok, so he was wrongfully imprisoned. We're going to take care of that. He'll make it through the night, though.

Stacey: Will he?

Cass: Of course he will.

Jamie: Well, hello.

Cass: Oh, hi!

Jamie: Have you two met my son?

Stacey: Why, hello!

Cass: Steven! Hi, big guy.

Stacey: I saw you at your christening.

Cass: Let's see how strong your grip is, huh? Isnít that what adults always say about babies, right?

Jamie: Everybody.

Cass: Hi. What a cute guy, Jamie.

Jamie: I like to think so, yeah. He takes after his father, of course.

Cass: Of course. Oh, goes without saying.

Ada: May I see you for a minute? I need you!

Cass: Just what I love, a woman who needs me. Excuse me.

Jamie: I wanted you to see why I appreciated so much what you did in that courtroom.

Stacey: I was just doing my job.

Jamie: Yes, but you won.

Stacey: I'm sorry that I had to use the photographs, Jamie.

Jamie: Donít start second-guessing yourself now.

Stacey: Have you seen Vicky?

Jamie: Oh, yeah, I've seen her.

Stacey: How's she doing?

Jamie: She and her family are pretty upset.

Stacey: I'll bet.

Jamie: But she gets Steven as much as I do, and as soon as that starts, she'll feel better.

Stacey: Will you?

Jamie: Well, at least it's over. Maybe now I can start enjoying my life again. You know, just look at this.

Sam: I'll throw you in the pool.

Matt: Hey, you want a little apron with this, huh?

Ada: Are they silly or what? Are they silly or what?

Matt: Wait a minute.

Jamie: Everybody having fun and everybody enjoying what they have. I mean, that's the way life should be.

Stacey: Yeah, it's nice.

Jamie: And now that I've gotten past all that, I hope to slow down a little bit myself and enjoy it. The last thing I want to do is miss this kid growing up.

Stacey: Right.

Jamie: Isnít that right, huh? I want the very best for this kid. I want him to have a good home and a father who's always around --

Stacey: Jamie, listen, I've got to leave.

Jamie: What?

Stacey: I'm sorry, I donít mean to be rude, but I really have to leave.

Jamie: Well, this is about Derek, isnít it?

Stacey: Yeah. I have to see him. I have to at least try to see him.

Jamie: Wait a minute, Stacey, wait a minute.

Stacey: He didnít take the red swan. You have to understand that.

Jamie: Are you defending him?

Stacey: He needs me. I donít know, I can just feel it, all right?

Jamie: Stacey, wait -- Stace?

Derek: Drop it.

Steel: Get out of my face.

Inmate: Hit him!

Derek: Drop it!

Steel: You're going to wind up with a scar on the other side, pal.

Derek: He's a kid, man.

Steel: It's between him and me, so back off.

Derek: You heard me. Leave him alone.

Steel: I donít hear him squawking.

Derek: Oh, what's the matter? Canít handle somebody unless it's a kid? Come on.

Steel: Son of a --

Derek: Go ahead, Ben, call the guards! Call them, man!

Ben: Help!

Derek: Call them louder, now! Call them now! You ain't going near him.

Guard: What's going on here? What's going on?

Steel: He's got a knife!

Guard: Break it up! I said break it up! Get the knife, jimmy.

Jimmy: I got it.

Guard: Break it up now!

Steel: He was going to kill me!

Guard: No, you ain't going to kill anybody.

Derek: Oh, come on, man. Ow!

Guard: Get in here!

Derek: Come on, man!

Guard: Take your time, we'll teach you a little lesson.

Guard: Hit that boy, come on. Harder!

Derek: No! It was his knife! (Female announcer) how can you hold onto heart-stopping red longer?

Felicia: Well, the salmon is terrific tonight. The proprietor suggests it because the proprietor ate it.

Lucas: Well, then I know what I'm having tonight.

Iris: So, how are you getting on, Felicia, while Mitch is away?

Felicia: Well, I'm keeping busy.

Lucas: You doing any writing?

Felicia: Yes, a little. You know, it's funny, though -- you think if you're given some extra time you're going to get all this work done, and --

Lucas: I know, you get the chance, and then it's harder than you thought it was. I know.

Iris: He misses you, too, if that's any consolation.

Felicia: Does he?

Iris: Yes. He let it slip last night when he called me. Oh, about the fresh faces campaign, of course.

Felicia: Of course. It's always nice to hear, though.

Iris: You know, I've always admired your relationship.

Felicia: Oh, yes, Iris, I know that.

Iris: Because you're obviously so much still in love.

Felicia: You know, that really surprises me.

Iris: Oh, what's that?

Felicia: Well, I just didnít think you admired me for anything.

Lucas: Hey, I got it.

Felicia: What?

Lucas: Felicia, join us.

Felicia: Oh, no, Luke, I canít. No, I'm going to leave soon.

Lucas: Oh. Uh-oh.

Felicia: What?

Lucas: I was supposed to call California a half-hour ago.

Iris: Oh, Lucas.

Lucas: If you'll excuse me a moment --

Iris: Of course. Oh, Felicia? Let's get something straight right now.

Felicia: What would that be, Iris?

Iris: Lucas May have been your childhood sweetheart, but he's seeing me now. So why donít you keep that in mind?

Rachel: Donna, I have to get back to my guests. I'm sure you know the way out.

Donna: None of this would've happened if Mac were still alive.

Rachel: I wouldnít go on with that if I were you.

Donna: Rachel, I'm saying it because it needs to be said.

Rachel: This is not a good idea.

Donna: Think about it. I'm not trying to hurt you.

Rachel: I think it's time for you to leave, Donna.

Donna: Think about what you and your son have done. The judge at the temporary hearing was a friend of yours. You made sure of that so you could get the ruling that you wanted.

Rachel: That was a coincidence, Donna.

Donna: Was it a coincidence that Jamie had the trial date moved up to a day when he thought that Victoria's lawyer wouldnít be available to help her?

Rachel: That was not my decision.

Donna: Were you proud of that? Were you proud of the fact that Jamieís lawyer had a photographer following Victoria and then presented phony pictures at the trial?

Rachel: I didnít know Stacey was going to do that.

Donna: Do you think Mac would've condoned that? No, of course he wouldnít. Because the real issue was whether or not Victoria was a good mother.

Rachel: I think you'd better leave.

Donna: Rachel, were you and Jamie so afraid of losing that you couldn't present an honest case?

Rachel: It really is time for you to leave.

Donna: I know you donít want to hear this because it's not a very pretty picture. You got your way, Jamie got his way, Victoria got punished. The only other one that's hurting here is a little boy who's not even allowed to see his own mother.

Rachel: Vicky will see him as much as Jamie does.

Donna: Where's the Rachel Cory that used to live in this house when Mac was still alive?

Rachel: She's right here, Donna.

Donna: Where's the person who was kind? Where's the person that cared about other people? Or was that just a facade that you used to put on for Mac? That's what it looks like to me. Because now that Mac is gone, you've become cold and manipulating, just the way you used to be. And now I will say good night.

Amanda: I have nothing to say about Vicky.

Evan: Well, maybe you donít, but I do. We're going to lay it on the table, Amanda.

Amanda: Look, your relationship with her is your own business.

Evan: You really mean that?

Amanda: Of course I do.

Evan: And you wouldnít care if I was to take her out?

Amanda: Is that what you're doing?

Evan: Just answer my question, Amanda.

Amanda: I thought you were just feeling sorry for her.

Evan: I did. She's a very attractive woman.

Amanda: She's very available.

Evan: Just answer my question.

Amanda: I couldn't care less what you do with Vicky.

Evan: Really?

Amanda: Yes. I think it's stupid, I think it's very idiotic, but if that's what you're into, then just go right ahead.

Evan: So you're saying you donít care?

Amanda: No.

Evan: Then why are you so upset?

Amanda: Look, if you are so intent on honesty, why donít we discuss yours?

Evan: Meaning what?

Amanda: Meaning that the only reason you're interested in Vicky at all is so that you can get back at me.

Stacey: This is an urgent legal matter.

Guard: We're not supposed to let anyone back here.

Stacey: I need to see my client! I'm his lawyer.

Guard: I know that. It doesn't make any difference. We're still not supposed to let anyone back here.

Stacey: All right, so take a look at this authorization.

Guard: All right, counselor. Five minutes.

Stacey: Derek? You asleep?

[Derek groans]

Stacey: You all right?

Derek: Stacey?

Stacey: Hi.

Derek: What are you doing here?

Stacey: I donít know. I just had this overwhelming feeling that something was wrong.

Derek: Go home.

Stacey: What?

Derek: Go home. I donít want you here.

Stacey: What's the matter with your voice? You ok?

Derek: I'm fine.

Stacey: Well, you donít sound fine.

Derek: You shouldnít --

Stacey: Derek --

Derek: You shouldnít be here.

Stacey: Oh! Oh! This is the first time I can remember

Felicia: My goodness.

Iris: You did hear what I said?

Felicia: Oh, oh, yes, of course I did. I'm just so surprised that you're showing your hand quite so soon.

Iris: I just want the ground rules clearly understood.

Felicia: You've really fallen for him, haven't you?

Iris: Oh, no, I think any woman would be foolish to fall for Lucas. You know that, of course.

Felicia: Yes, yes. Probably would be foolish. Gee, I'm so sorry that my relationship with Lucas is upsetting you so much.

Iris: It doesn't upset me. I just want things clarified.

Felicia: Iris, Lucas and I are friends, good friends. We go back a lot of years. We even have a child together. So I will go on seeing him whenever I like, ground rules or no ground rules.

Iris: Fine. Just as long as we understand one thing -- hands off.

Felicia: Gee, if you see me as a threat, I'm afraid that's going to have to be your problem, Iris.

Iris: What about Mitch?

Felicia: What about Mitch?

Iris: Well, I think it could be his problem, too. He seemed very troubled when he left Bay City, not that I could say I blame him.

Felicia: Mitch understands my relationship with Lucas completely.

Iris: Oh, really?

Felicia: Yes, really.

Iris: Felicia, what about you? Do you understand it?

Felicia: I beg your pardon?

Iris: If I was you, I'd examine your feelings before you ruin a very good marriage.

Lucas: Felicia, I was hoping I could --

Felicia: Why do you bring her here?

Lucas: What --

Felicia: You know, you can do anything you want with Iris. You can be friends with her, you can even sleep with her, but do you have to bring her to my restaurant?

Lucas: What did she say?

Felicia: You know, I was really having a very good evening, I really was. I was having a fun time.

Lucas: Fanny, I wanted to talk to you about something.

Felicia: What, with Iris in tow?

Lucas: Well, she said she didnít want to be alone tonight.

Felicia: Listen, let me tell you something, you and I can be friends and you can be, well, whatever you want to be with her, but you cannot throw us together and expect it to work out because we really donít like each other.

Lucas: Fanny, I'm sorry.

Felicia: Ok. I know. I know you are. I'm sorry, too. All right, what did you want to talk to me about?

Lucas: Well, not like this. Wait until the place thins out a little, all right?

Felicia: Is it about the investigation of our daughter?

Lucas: No, this is something else.

Felicia: Ok. I'll talk to you later.

Lucas: Yeah.

Felicia: Better clear it with Iris.

Lucas: I'll talk to you later, ok?

Donna: Hi, darling.

Vicky: Hi, Mom.

Donna: You look beautiful. I'm glad that you changed out of that dress.

Vicky: How did it go?

Donna: Well, I said what I had to say.

Vicky: To Jamie?

Donna: No, to Rachel. I told her that I thought she was being just like she used to be.

Vicky: I donít want to hear it.

Donna: But you just asked.

Vicky: I donít care.

Donna: All right. We'll talk about it tomorrow then.

Vicky: No, not tomorrow, either. To hell with the Coryís.

Donna: Why do you say that?

Vicky: I have spent way too much time trying to be a good Cory wife, and I am sick of it. I am sick of being depressed.

Donna: I know you are. I know.

Vicky: I'm going to have my time with Steven. And someday, I am going to figure out how to tell him that even though I'm his mommy, I donít -- no, I am sick to death of this whole business.

Donna: Why donít we get a table and we'll sit and we'll talk about something cheerful?

Vicky: Actually, would you and Dad mind if I just skipped out on dinner tonight?

Donna: No, but --

Vicky: Thank you.

Donna: Why donít you at least wait till your father gets here?

Vicky: I've got to get out of here before I go absolutely crazy.

Donna: Where are you going?

Vicky: I donít know. I donít -- yes, I do know. I am going to go take a ride in my brand-new car that I bought today with my own money, and I am going to have fun and forget about everything else.

Donna: Victoria, donít speed.

Evan: Sometimes your ego really amazes me, Amanda.

Amanda: Oh, does it?

Evan: See, everything centers around you, including whether I date another woman or not.

Amanda: Well, I'm sorry if the truth hurts, Evan.

Evan: Well, since we're both being so honest right now, why donít you admit what's really got you upset? You're jealous.

Amanda: Talk about ego.

Evan: What, you're going to deny it?

Amanda: The last person in the world that I would be jealous of is Vicky.

Evan: Oh, face it, Amanda, you had the perfect setup.

Amanda: What?

Evan: Well, you had your loving husband at home, me in the office. Vicky gets in the middle -- wham -- it spoils all your fun.

Amanda: You're just upset because I chose to be faithful to my husband. I guess that hurt you, didnít it?

Evan: No. I'm just happy that you finally made up your mind.

Amanda: You couldn't care less about Vicky one way or the other!

Evan: Oh, really? Now how would you know that?

Amanda: Because you're too smart for that. You've got to see through her tricks. You're just waiting to go to bed with her so you could throw it in my face. Oh, maybe I'm a little behind the times. Maybe you've already taken her to bed.

Evan: Wouldnít you like to know.

Stacey: Help! Somebody help! I need a doctor! Help me!

Guard: What's the matter with him?

Stacey: He's obviously been beaten up. Where's the warden? We need a doctor and an ambulance here right now!

Guard: Yeah, we had a little trouble in here earlier.

Stacey: So, what, are you a doctor? Why are you examining him and wasting time?

Guard: Some of the prisoners got into a fight.

Stacey: Here, you call this number and you tell them you want to talk to Dr. Frame, and you tell him that you want him over here immediately.

Guard: I donít know. There's standard procedure --

Stacey: You call Dr. Frame right now or you're going to spend the rest of your life in court, you got that? You, the warden, the city, the county! You guys are going to be slapped with so many lawsuits, you wonít know what hit you.

Guard: I better get the warden.

Stacey: You call the doctor first!

Derek: Stacey.

Stacey: Here, here. Put this on your head.

Derek: Let it go.

Stacey: No, no, no, it's ok. The doctor is coming. It's going to be all right. Donít move. Donít move. Just stay still.

Derek: Ok.

Stacey: Otherwise, you might have internal bleeding. I donít know.

Derek: I'm all right, I'm all right.

Stacey: You're not all right. You just passed out, Derek. What happened?

Derek: A fight.

Stacey: A fight? Who? The prisoners? Did they gang up on you?

Derek: No.

Stacey: Then who did this to you?

Derek: The guards.

[Jamie whirs]

Ada: Open your mouth. Oh.

Jamie: Where'd it go?

Cass: What a nasty father you have.

Jamie: He already ate, he already ate, I swear.

Ada: He doesn't want to eat anyway. He's sleepy.

Jamie: He is kind of sleepy, isnít he?

Ada: This kid's up for a nap.

Jamie: Yeah, you sleepy, hmm?

Amanda: Hi. How's the chicken, huh?

Cass: Really good.

Jamie: It's not too bad.

Amanda: Oh, good. Hi. Hi, cutie. How you doing?

Sam: I thought you were only going to take a couple of minutes with Evan.

Amanda: We had a few matters to straighten out. It got a little complicated.

Sam: You ok?

Amanda: Yeah, sure, I'm fine. Well, looks like you arbitrated this war of the chicken pretty well, huh? I'm starving.

Matt: So, you going to tell Russ about it or what?

Josie: I donít know what to do. Do I tell Reuben I canít hang around anymore? I donít want to do that. He's my friend.

Matt: Well, you tell Russ that.

Josie: No, Russ isnít going to change his mind about Reuben. I just donít understand why he got so upset. Do you think I'm terrible?

Matt: No, I donít think you're terrible.

Josie: No, but Russ is doing all these things for me. He wants to send me to college, anything I want, and now I'm going to be going behind his back.

Matt: I donít understand why he has a problem with Reuben.

Josie: I donít, either.

Matt: Anyway, you have to do what you think is right, no matter what Russ believes or thinks.

Josie: You know, I just realized something. My whole life, I've been doing what someone else told me to do.

Matt: Not the last few months you havenít.

Josie: Well, that's true.

Cass: Listen, you guys, I overheard you talking about Reuben there a while ago. Mind if I ask you a question?

Matt: Sure.

Cass: Well, what's the story? I mean, he takes off, and now he's back. Is he back for good or what?

Josie: I heard that you fixed things with the parole board.

Cass: Yeah, but they could easily be unfixed if he takes off again.

Josie: Well, Cass, you got to understand, I mean, Reubenís a little uptight.

Cass: About what?

Josie: Well, his family. They really -- they give him a lot of pressure. His brother started college when he was 16.

Cass: So he feels like he doesn't fit in?

Matt: Yeah.

Josie: He's a good guy. He helped me so much when I was in New York.

Matt: Listen, well, can you -- can you cut him a break or --

Cass: Yeah, sure.

Josie: I know you believe in him.

Cass: But does he believe in himself? That's the question.

Josie: Well, I'm going to help him. He helped me, and I'm going to help him.

Matt: But he's going to have to pull it all together, right?

Cass: Right. When's he going to do that, though?

Ada: Listen, where's Rachel? Has anybody seen Rachel?

Matt: I havenít.

Alli: Ball.

Ada: Oh, ball. Yeah, I've got to go look for Rachel.

Cass: You've got your hands full. Let me take care of it, ok?

Ada: Ok, Cass, thank you.

Cass: Thanks, you guys.

Ada: We've got to get these babies down for a nap. What do you think?

Amanda: Hey, Jamie, is Mom still inside with Donna?

Jamie: Yeah, and I'm sure she's taking care of it, too. Excuse me.

Amanda: Right.

Sam: Yeah.

Jamie: Hi.

Ada: Oh, look who's here.

Jamie: Hi.

Ada: Look who's here. Hi.

Jamie: It's -- it's a great party, huh?

Ada: You want an answer or an opinion?

Jamie: On what?

Ada: On you. All this smiling and having a great time. It's just a little forced, isnít it?

Jamie: Yeah, I guess it is. I donít know. I guess I've just been kind of keyed up lately, you know, with the custody trial and everything and winning.

Ada: Well, it's all over now. Here you go, sweetie.

Jamie: Yeah. I'm just feeling a little -- a little empty inside.

Ada: You won. You got Steven.

Jamie: But I lost my wife, and all my dreams of finally having a happy family.

Singer: Next time that I come through your town to play


Singer: Back on the road again

Evan: Hey! Hey, lady!

[Music stops]

Evan: What, are you crazy? You backed that piece of junk right up into my car!

Vicky: Evan!

Evan: You've got to be kidding me.

Vicky: I'm sorry. Oh, God, it's just amazing that you --

Evan: Would you tell me what is so funny, Vicky?

Vicky: Well, it's -- it's just you of all people --

Evan: Just look at my car! You backed right into the fender. The wheels wonít turn. Now I canít drive my car.

Vicky: I'm -- I'm sorry. I really am, Evan. It's just I am -- I am so sick of crying.

Evan: Looks like we're two people on a collision course, huh?

Vicky: I guess so.

Evan: Yeah, I guess. Why donít you look into some driving lessons, Vicky?

Vicky: Maybe I should. Your car's pretty messed up.

Evan: Yeah, I like that car, you know that? It's pretty --

Vicky: Need a lift?

Evan: Obviously, I canít drive my car. Where you going?

Vicky: Oh -- uh -- I haven't the foggiest idea. But I'd love some company.

Felicia: Donna. Hi.

Donna: Hi.

Felicia: Can I get you a table?

Donna: Oh, no, thank you. I'm just waiting for Michael.

Felicia: Ok. I saw Vicky earlier.

Donna: She's very upset.

Felicia: I know. I told her how sorry I was about the custody hearing.

Donna: Oh, thank you. I just came from trying to talk some sense into Rachel, for all the good it probably did.

Felicia: Well, maybe if you give it some time. I mean, you know, once everybody realizes that a little boy is at stake here, maybe things will change some.

Donna: Is there any word on your daughter?

Felicia: No. No, we're still looking.

Donna: Well, maybe it's better that you donít find her.

Felicia: What?

Donna: Children. Having children can be very painful.

Felicia: Well, I think loving anyone can be painful, but I like to think it's worth it.

Lucas: Can I get you some coffee or dessert or something?

Iris: The perfect end to a perfect evening?

Lucas: I'm really not trying to make you miserable.

Iris: Aren't you? You know, I'm really finding it hard to try and understand you.

Lucas: Why?

Iris: Well, one minute you say you care, and the next minute you've gone. You turn the charm off just as easily as you turn it on.

Lucas: Maybe not quite so easily.

Iris: I saw you talking to Felicia.

Lucas: I know you did.

Iris: I'd really like to know something.

Lucas: Shoot.

Iris: Are you still in love with her?

Cass: Rachel?

Rachel: Yes, Cass?

Cass: Hi. Everyone's eating.

Rachel: Oh. Sorry. I lost track of the time.

Cass: What's wrong?

Rachel: Nothing. I'm fine.

Cass: Is it about the red swan?

Rachel: No. Um -- somebody just offered an opinion about me, and I was just trying to sort out whether it made any sense or not.

Cass: Donna?

Rachel: Yeah. She was pretty angry and upset.

Cass: Well, sometimes Donna talks before she thinks.

Rachel: I know. Maybe there was something in what she said. I was trying to figure it out.

Cass: What did she say?

Rachel: Do you remember what you were like before Kathleen, a few years ago?

Cass: Certain images do come to mind, like reptilian, without a conscience, unscrupulous, a wee bit opportunistic.

Rachel: Yes, but you changed.

Cass: I fell in love. I married Kathleen. I realized that I didnít have to continue operating, that I'd found what I was looking for.

Rachel: And then you lost it. Have you ever been afraid that that person you were before would resurface?

Cass: The old Cass is still around, at least part of him anyway. But I'm not sure if I could be my old self again even if I tried. Why?

Rachel: That's right, isnít it? I mean, there's life, right? It changes us, doesn't it?

Cass: Yes.

Rachel: I mean, we canít go back. Or can we?

Cass: No, we evolve. We canít go back. Now, how about us getting a little something to eat? Your family's waiting.

Rachel: Ok.

Stacey: It's going to be all right. We have a doctor coming, Derek. Donít worry.

Derek: I donít care about a doctor.

Stacey: Just -- just be still. Donít move.

Derek: No, I've got to get out of here.

Stacey: It's ok, you will. We're working on it, Cass and I. First thing in the morning, we're going to go and try to appeal your bail charge.

Derek: No.

Stacey: Yeah, and the fact that the guards beat you up, it's only going to help.

Derek: You're not still counting on the law, are you?

Stacey: What?

Derek: The law's not going to work for me.

Stacey: Yes, it will, Derek.

Derek: No, the only way is to get out of here and find the person who stole that stuff, find them myself.

Stacey: No. We'll find a sympathetic judge.

Derek: It doesn't matter how I get out of here. I just got to get out of here, and I will. I will.

[Rock music blares]

Evan: Funny -- you sure you know where you're going?

Vicky: Who cares?

Evan: That's true. Vicky, are you sure you know how to handle this thing?

Vicky: Yeah, you know, I think I'm going to be in the Kentucky derby next year.

Evan: Vicky, that's for horses.

Vicky: Maybe I'll even let you be in one of the races, you know that? This is an autoerotic experience, if you know what I mean.

Evan: Well, I'm looking forward to that but, look, in the meantime why donít you slow down because this turn's --

Vicky: Evan, will you chill out?

Evan: Vicky, I've got a bad feeling about this.

Vicky: Hang on, sweetheart!

Singer: Fast mover you canít catch me
