Melrose Place s06e25 Episode Script

Four Affairs and a Pregnancy

1 I'll get us a couple beers, okay? Okay.
Hey.
Hey yourself.
What can I get you? I'm not sure what I want.
I could probably make a suggestion.
Well, two beers will do for now.
Jennifer: Do you see something else you like? Oh, yeah.
This wind's wild, isn't it? Makes you feel like anything can happen.
I mean, of course, anything won't happen, but it feels like it might.
Like the laws of nature might explode.
Let's get out of here.
But we just got our drinks.
I just totally forgot, I got an early meeting tomorrow.
I got to get to bed.
Hey.
Something wrong? Michael kissed me today.
Do you want me to tear him limb from limb? No.
He was just pleading with me not to go to Philadelphia with you.
And what'd you decide? Well, the truth is, this place has become kind of my home, my family, and Michael made that happen for me.
And, uh The person that I've become here has to grow, and you're making that happen, which makes Michael totally crazy.
And at the end of the day, I love you more than I feel bad for him.
And the bottom line is wherever you go, I'll go.
You've made me a very happy man.
And your timing couldn't be better.
The, uh, the head of the search committee is taking me to dinner at the Imperial Hotel tomorrow night.
I'd love for you to come.
Sure.
But maybe we should, uh, go to Kyle's instead.
I mean, it's much more intimate.
Well, you know, it's his invitation, so he kind of gets to pick where we eat, but, uh, if it's intimate that you want, I think I can give you that.
Hello.
Michael, are you still there? No, this is my answering service.
What do you want? I was just wondering how things were going at the clinic.
Actually, mom called, and she wanted to know how her investment was doing.
Lousy.
I'm in debt up to my glottis.
The patients here, they're all deadbeats.
And now I find out that Megan might be going away with Coop.
I feel like a walking train wreck.
Well, just hold on, Michael, don't do anything stupid.
You know, if you pulled yourself together, Megan might reconsider you.
That's exactly my point.
I need money so I won't look like such a such a loser.
I mean this suit against Peter and Coop might take years to cash in on.
Thing is this clinic is worth a fortune on paper.
Michael, you're not thinking about fire insurance, are you? You don't remember the cannoli explosion at grandpa's bakery? Yeah, only like it was yesterday.
Yeah, well, the proceeds from that policy got the family back on its feet again.
Yeah, but, Michael, you don't have a defective pastry oven.
Well, there's more than one way to liquidate a business.
You know, Michael, get a clue, okay? Megan's not interested in money.
It's character she responds to, and I just hope you find some soon.
I'm just considering all my options.
What's happening? I'm going for a run.
Now? What time is it? It's late.
I thought you had to get up early in the morning.
Yeah, well, I can't sleep.
You go back to bed, though.
You bet I will.
Oh.
Running away from home? No, just feel a little restless, you know.
I got a lot to think about, issues to work out.
What? What are you doing? Is something wrong? Yes, something is very wrong.
I can't stay away from you, Billy.
And I think you feel the same way.
I think that's why you're running circles in the middle of the night, running scared.
This is nuts.
You are way off base.
I love you.
Don't say that.
I have to.
I can't keep it inside anymore.
We can't keep denying this.
I'm married.
No.
I must have been crazy To let you change me I must have been crazy You shattered me till I felt like broken glass Your lack of conscience Shelters you from your past You got 'em all lined up so pretty in a row I must have been crazy To let you save me I must have been crazy Hi.
We need to talk about Michael.
Ugh, what is it now? Megan he's in a bad way, and I'm worried that he might torch his clinic, and you're the only one that could stop him.
And just exactly how am I supposed to do that? I'm not sure.
Maybe you could use how much he still loves you to save him from his own worst instincts.
It's too late for that.
I'm with Coop, and if everything works out, we're going back east together.
Um, Megan, if you left now, it might push Michael right over the edge.
I'm afraid he might do something desperate.
He needs your help.
You can't desert him at a time like this.
You know, it's always "a time like this" for Michael.
I have enough problems of my own.
I can't take it right now.
I'm sorry.
I just barge in here making all these demands, never stop to think that you might be going through who knows what.
I mean, you're in a new relationship and everything's up in the air.
Oh, it's nothing, just this doctor's meeting Coop at the Imperial Hotel for dinner, and I'm supposed to go along, except that the Imperial is where I used to do my escort business, and it's just making me a little jumpy.
Megan, that is exactly what I am talking about.
That is the life that Michael saved you from.
Don't you owe him anything for that? Yeah, but how long do I have to be grateful? How many times do I have to rescue him, I mean to return the favor? All I'm saying is, you're the only thing that Michael talks about.
Don't you remember what it feels like to love something that you can't have? Yeah, I remember.
I'll, uh I'll see what I can do.
What are these for? Did I forget an anniversary or something? I was thinking about you, and I wanted you to know that I love you.
They're beautiful.
Watch out when a man brings you flowers.
He's either trying to get away with something or guilty of something he already got away with.
Peter, I really don't have time.
I just wanted to stop by and apologize for walking out on you like that.
No apologies necessary.
Lexi is the woman you should be giving your attention to now.
I'm just a friend.
Well, in that case, friend, I'd like to take to you to dinner with Lexi tonight.
I don't think so.
Look, Peter, I'm really busy, so if you don't mind.
Oh, come on, we're three adults.
There's no reason why we can't go out and have a normal, social evening together.
Fine, whatever, just please, no sermons on my life choices.
It's a deal.
7:30 reservation at Kyle's.
Wait, see, that's exactly what I'm talking about.
You're already trying to play matchmaker, and I have no interest in seeing Kyle.
Hey, I just like the food there.
If you've got a problem with it, we'll go anywhere you like.
Lexi's out riding this morning, I'll have to call her Kyle's is fine.
He and I have to co-exist in this town.
We might as well start tonight.
Great! See you at 7:30.
We'll meet you there.
No problem.
Rory? Lexi? My God! What are you doing here? I moved out.
I live here.
Well, I hope you escaped that hypocritical husband of yours.
Well, actually, Coop lives here, too.
But we are happily divorced, and we've both moved on.
Good.
You always deserved better.
Mmm.
You always deserved me, actually, but I guess that was never in the cards.
No, never.
So, are you still with Diane? God, no.
What an albatross she turned out to be.
I got a nice settlement out of it, at least.
Same old Rory.
Mmm.
So, you with anybody else? Anybody I know? I'm all alone in the cold, cold world.
Oh, well, that won't last long.
What are you doing out here? I'm just putting together kind of an investment thing.
Ah, you always got your hands in some sort of sweet deal, don't you? Ah, I just rely on the kindness of strangers, sugar.
This duck is terrific.
How's your trout, Amanda? Trouty.
Well, that's good advertising right? I mean, promises to be a fresh water fish and, by God, it delivers.
I guess I've lost my appetite for a lot of things lately.
Give it time, you'll bounce back.
Rory: This must be the place.
Mmm! Oh, Rory, I'm so glad you could make it.
Hey, Peter, Amanda, this is my old friend, Rory Blake.
Of the Cleveland Blakes.
Peter Burns, Canadian Mounties.
Yeah, I bumped into Rory this morning and invited him to join us for dinner.
He's in town on business.
What kind of business? Charmed.
I'm sure.
Rory moves money.
Peter, here, is the chief of staff over at Wilshire Memorial Hospital, and Amanda runs her own ad agency.
Really? Mmm-hmm.
I love the advertising metaphor, the way it creates its own reality with words and pictures.
And a lot of smooth talking, huh? Absolutely.
Advertising is the bedrock of human interaction.
We all do it.
In personal relationships, in business.
Some of us just do it better than others.
Some of us have more to work with.
Mmm.
Rory's a connoisseur of quality merchandise.
Well, I just love a good show.
I mean, take this place, for example.
Warm setting, expensive artwork, the illusion it creates justifies the pricey menu.
Maybe, but this place stays open because the menu is created by a great chef, who also happens to be a great guy.
Oh, Peter, give me a break.
Well, as long as he has a great wine list, he's got my vote.
Just closed a deal today, so I'm going to have a glass of champagne to celebrate.
Make it a bottle, and I'll join you.
Waiter, a bottle of your best champagne.
Man: Michael? No! Um, um! Oh! Father Maldonado, what are you doing here? Saving your butt, it looks like.
I don't know what you're talking about.
I was, um, just catching up on some lab work, actually.
You should be more careful.
A spill like this could be dangerous.
Well, um, you know, you surprised me is all, you know.
I get a little jumpy at night.
It's not a great neighborhood, you know.
I'm not here to hurt you, Michael.
Yeah.
So, why are you here? Coming to make you an offer.
What kind of an offer? A young doctor I know would like to practice in this neighborhood.
I propose to buy this clinic with the money you so kindly donated to the church last month, and my friend will run it as an HMO.
Are you serious? I mean, this place is Wait a minute, this place is perfect for you.
Yes, I accept the offer, assuming it's a reasonable one.
Oh, it's more than generous.
Consider it a gift from your guardian angel.
Come on, you guys, join the party.
You're supposed to be lifting my spirits.
You look like my pallbearers.
I'm sorry, Amanda, I'm bushed.
Yeah, we really ought to get home.
Mmm.
What's the rush? Come on, we're just getting started.
Well, it's a school night for some of us.
Well, you guys go.
I've been a bad girl, so I'm going to stay after school.
Ma'am, could I have a word with you? In private.
Looks like you've had a couple drinks.
This is why you brought me out here? You're going to give me a breathalyzer? No, I just want to let you know that I'm going to Dallas to find Nick.
And I care about this why? I talked to his landlady, and she said that Nick left Dallas five weeks ago which exactly when Christine showed up here.
See, I know that these two things are connected, and I am absolutely sure that Nick is involved in this whole Christine mess, and I think if I could just figure out You don't know when to cut your losses, do you? Well, I do.
So please stop trying to rewrite the ending.
Go home.
I love you.
This is not about love.
It's about two dead women, Christine and me, and I killed us both.
I know you're the one who brokered the deal with Father Maldonado, so don't bother trying to deny it.
I just want you to admit that, well, you wouldn't have done it if you didn't love me.
I used to love you, Michael, and I went to the priest in honor of that.
Okay.
I'm willing to start there.
And now that I'm financially secure again, well, I'd like to show you what kind of guy I am.
I know what kind of guy you are, which is why I knew you needed help, and I wanted to stop you from becoming an arsonist.
Yeah, well, you know, I was going to use this money from the sale to sue Coop, but, you know, that's the old me.
Instead, well, I figure it could be a nest egg for you and me to start over again.
I am starting over.
I love Coop.
And if this new job comes through, then I'm going to I'm gonna go away with him.
No, Megan, you can't Michael, Michael, look, this whole thing, okay? It was my good-bye present to you.
So, good-bye.
Coop, hey.
Hey.
Listen, last night I had dinner with a guy named Rory Blake.
Lexi says you were friends with him back in Cleveland.
That guy's no friend of mine.
He's a bad seed.
The guy seemed like an empty rattle to me.
Yeah, he dated my little sister when that was convenient for him, and then he broke her heart and dumped her for some poor little rich girl.
Probably left her in the dust by now.
Sounds like he brings out the big brother in you.
Well, even before he met my sister, I always had the urge to wash up after I shook hands with the guy, you know? Yeah, I'm not surprised.
I'm just concerned he's zeroing in on Amanda.
Well, she seems like she could take care of herself.
Yeah.
Drive it over there, and I mean now.
Amanda: Oh, men and flowers.
I, uh, I just wanted to come by and say thank you for last night.
I had a great time.
Congratulations, but things are a little tense today.
So, if you don't mind.
See, I wrote the book on tension.
And chapter one is all about the dangers of over-work.
Well, working hard helps keep my mind off things.
Well, maybe you just need a different set of things to keep your mind off.
Woman, on intercom: Miss Woodward, Digby Dog Food on line two.
Got to go.
Better put those flowers in some water before they wilt.
Nothing sadder than seeing something beautiful just dry up because nobody cares.
Close the door on your way out.
Will do.
Oh, but I'll be back, though.
I also wrote the book on taking care of beautiful things.
Hi.
Want to get some lunch? Uh, no, I can't, I have a meeting.
I'll drive you.
No thanks.
I have a million errands to run afterwards.
Yeah, me, too.
Um, you know, we could carpool.
No, really, I have stuff all the way down in Long Beach.
I'm late already.
Love you, bye.
And there, for title to the equipment.
Mmm-hmm.
Wonderful.
Here's your check.
Father, it's been a pleasure doing business with you.
I think it was the best thing for everyone.
Wait, wait, wait a second.
What is this? This is only for $10,000, and it's made out to Wallace Mancini.
Yes, your sister Jennifer told me your whole family invested in the clinic, so Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
You know what? You can give me all the money.
I'll see to it that it's repaid.
Sorry I'm late.
Did you, uh, give him the checks yet? What do you mean checks? I had Father Maldonado make one out to every relative who invested.
Principal plus 5%.
I thought that was pretty conservative.
Why? Why are you doing this, Jennifer? I needed this money.
To sue Coop, to make a good run at Megan, to buy a car, to You owed the family, Michael, and I'm just here to make sure that you do the right thing.
Michael, you must be pure at heart with so many guardian angels.
This one's for you.
$730? And the river opens for the righteous.
Jennifer, would you like some tea? Hmm! Uh Jeff: What took you so long? Oh, my God, I thought I was never going to get here.
This meeting went on forever and then Billy was going on about something, I don't even know what it was, and I was stuck in traffic, and now we only have a half an hour because I have to go on another meeting.
But you know what? This sneaking around is kind of exciting in a strange way, you know? Mmm.
Hold it.
Oh, wait, you want me to take it off? No, I hate this.
This is totally not exciting.
No, wait, look, I don't want nooners.
I want slow, long mornings.
I want I want to walk down the block with you.
I want to take you to the movies.
I want I want this to be out in the open.
I want those things, too, but it's just that we have so little time, we have to squeeze the romance in however we can.
I know, but we we don't have to have sex every time we see each other.
I mean, we could just talk.
Yes.
That would be nice, too.
What would you like to talk about? Well, there's the Baylor family picnic this weekend, you know, uncles and cousins by the dozens, and I told everyone about you, You have? What have you told them about me? I just told them that you were a great softball player.
They can't wait for you to come by and fill the hole at second base.
So you better show.
Okay, I would love to, I guess.
Dr.
Cooper.
Hi.
I'm George Larner.
Oh, it's a pleasure to meet you, Dr.
Larner.
Mrs.
Cooper, it's a pleasure.
Oh, no, we're not married.
We're Well, not yet.
I hope that's not a problem for those East Coast sensibilities.
No, not at all! I mean, it is the '90s, even in Philadelphia.
Your table is ready.
If you'll just come this way, please.
I'm going to go to the ladies' room.
I'll meet you in there, okay? Oh, sure.
Haven't seen you in a while.
Yeah, well, I haven't been around lately.
Well, just so there's no misunderstandings.
If you're working here again, I get 10%, and I tell you which room to go to.
Look, I'm not working here again, okay? I don't do that anymore.
So why don't you just your chubby mitts off me.
Sure thing, princess.
Remember, I got my eye on you.
Woman: He cleaned out the place when he left.
Except for the flag which I decided to let hang.
I think it gives the room a little class.
No forwarding address, huh? Guys like Nick, they never know where they're going.
But hey, maybe you'd like to rent out the room.
I could cut you a special deal.
No, thanks.
I've already got a place.
You know, what about phone calls? Friends? Anybody come to visit him here? Yeah, some tart who said she was his sister.
Like I bought that one.
Is this her? Is this the woman who came to visit? He might've called her Christine.
No, that ain't the one.
The woman Nick was with had short brown hair, big eyes, kind of pouty lips.
Taylor.
Yeah, that's what he called her, I think.
Taylor.
Thanks.
No, Coop is an excellent doctor.
Actually I hope you don't hire him because I need him here.
Well, I appreciate your input, Doctor.
And I'm staying at the Imperial Hotel if you can think of anything else.
Excellent.
Who's that? Oh, that's Dr.
Larner from the Hutchison Research Center.
It looks like Coop's going to take off and be a big mucky-muck there.
Yeah, well, good riddance.
I'll be damned if I'm going to let him take Megan with him.
At least not without a fight.
How about this guy, huh? He just blows into town, we accommodate him, we knock walls out in our office, and then he then he takes off leaving me in the lurch.
Yeah, what a jerk.
Which leads me to why I'm here.
Look, I just sold my clinic at a huge profit, I might add, and, uh, well, since Coop is leaving, and there's going to be a gaping hole in your practice, if you ask me nicely, I might let you take me back.
You're joking.
Let me put it to you another way, if you don't take me back, I'll sue your pants off.
You do what you have to do, Michael.
Because the one good thing Coop did for me was get you out of my life.
That wasn't the only good thing Coop's ever done for you.
Sorry, am I interrupting something? Nothing of consequence.
Oh.
You wish.
Michael.
Oh, what do you want? Michael, please stop, I need to talk to you.
I need you to examine me again.
I am still dizzy from the concussion Nick gave me.
You were born dizzy, Taylor.
No, Michael, I'm worried.
Listen, I'm trying to start my life over, you know, turn over a new leaf, no scheming, and I'm probably going to drop dead before lunch.
Now, is it possible, could I be bleeding inside my head or something? Okay, okay, yeah, we'll take some tests and X-rays.
I'll see what I can find.
Okay.
If anything.
Woman on P.
A: Doctor Perkins to O.
R.
One, stat.
No, no, I was just curious as to why you why you introduced Rory to Amanda.
What are you, her chaperon, hmm? No, the guy's a slimeball.
Coop told me all about it.
Oh, well, Coop, he's just exaggerating.
No, I mean, Rory's a good guy.
Besides, he's new in town, I'm just helping him to meet some people.
All right, as long as you're not deliberately trying to sabotage Amanda.
Don't be ridiculous.
And besides, why do you care so much, huh? I mean, aside from the occasional dinner, I thought you were going to stay out of Amanda's life? I will if you will.
No, and that's final.
Yes, but is it absolutely, positively final? Look, I am really swamped here.
Yeah, and I'm here to take you to the racetrack.
I don't have time for anything that frivolous.
No, no! Heaven forbid you should take a break.
No, this is work, my dear.
I just bought a thoroughbred, and I need your thoughts on using it to market a line of riding accessories.
Set up a meeting.
No, got to go right now.
Horse is leaving for Kentucky, and she won't sign a deal without a hoof-shake.
Wait, I said no.
You don't like guys like me, do you? I'm just a little too smooth, a little too manicured.
Just a pretty boy who's looking to party.
Yeah, what is it? Amanda, it's Kyle.
I'm back from Dallas.
And before you hang up on me, I got some interesting news that I found there.
Nothing about you or anything you have to say interests me.
You know something? Right now, you're just perfect.
What kind of interesting news? Did you find Nick? No, but I found out that Taylor's been involved in this thing since the beginning.
And when I see her, I'm going to tear her head off.
Calm down, Marine.
A dead Taylor isn't going to help you find out what happened.
Yeah, well, at least I'd get some satisfaction.
You'd probably learn a lot more if you were just nice to her.
After all, what is Taylor's big weakness? You.
That's your only card right now.
What's your point? I bet if you just wooed her a little, she'd come clean.
Otherwise she'll most likely take her Christine scheme, whatever it was, to the grave.
Hmm.
I tell you what, forget about going back to work today.
After we look at my horse, we'll do the town, huh? Ah, here we are.
Go right in.
Right by the stable boy.
You're late.
The owner shows up, I'm worse than fired.
Just be a minute.
Listen, somebody starts nosing around, give a shout, will you? If they do, I'm long gone.
And you're on your own.
It looks like a race horse, only smaller.
That's because it's just a yearling.
They do grow, you know.
It's never raced? How do you decide to buy a horse with no track record? Well, he's got great lineage, great legs, and it's a frisky beauty.
Hmm.
What'd you name it? Amanda.
Let's lay our cards on the table.
You made your play, and it's not a bad one, but I am a married woman with a very complicated life.
See now, I am a very uncomplicated guy.
I'll go along for the ride.
But don't say I didn't warn you.
And if were you, I'd name the horse something else.
Taylor, I'm looking for Megan.
Jennifer said I might find her here.
Well, she was having dinner with Coop, and they just left.
She's trying to stay away from me.
But I'm telling you, I'm going to keep her in L.
A.
, even if it means preventing Coop from leaving.
Mike, do those tests show anything from this morning? Oh, no, you're fine.
Hey.
Hey, you don't look so good.
You feeling all right? No, as a matter of fact, I'm not.
Well, you could probably use some rest.
I bet you've been working too hard down here.
Actually, I have.
Nobody's even offered to help.
My fault, sorry.
You are? Yeah.
To make it up to you, what do you say that you and I take the day off tomorrow? There's a new restaurant up the coast, and I would love to check out their menu.
Are you feeling okay? Yeah.
This is, uh very sudden.
Well, no pressure.
I just I thought that I would love to.
Okay.
I'll drive.
It'll be just like old times.
Oh, hey, Jennifer! I can't decide whether I should go to the Baylor family picnic or not.
Go.
Well, can I come up and talk about it? Come.
Amanda.
After you hung up on me last night, I tried to call you back two more times.
Oh, Kyle.
What do you want? You could've at least returned the calls.
Sorry, we were at the track.
And then Spago's for dinner and, um, some dance place, What was that? I don't know, a dance place.
Anything else you want to know? Yeah, what, you dating this guy? I don't see how that concerns you.
Look, we don't want any trouble here.
Keep your nose out of this, junior.
You dating him? Go home, Kyle, this is so tired.
No, I have a right to know who my wife is dating.
You have no rights with me! Look, I, uh, I really should be going.
You going to be okay? Yeah, fine.
I'll call you.
Okay.
Well, you scared him away.
Does that make you feel macho, proud, what? No, just makes me sad to see what you're turning into.
Don't you walk away from me! I have something to tell you! At least have the courtesy to listen to me! I have heard it all, and I'm sick of going over it! Can't you get it through your thick skull that we're broken up? No, you've broken up, I haven't broken up.
Fine, I'll date whoever I want.
You know what, I would date, but I haven't forgotten that I'm married.
See, vows mean something to me.
I made a commitment to you, for better or worse, I made a promise.
And what an idiot I am, I keep trying to keep it.
I wish I could've eaten more.
It was so good.
I just think I'm a little carsick from the ride up.
You just need a little fresh air and then you'll be fine.
Kyle, what's going on? Why are you being so nice to me all of a sudden? What do you mean? Why are you being so cynical? Come on, have I stooped so low that you can't buy my kindness? Well, no, of course not.
But you're usually very negative about me.
Maybe I'm just lonely, but I don't know if you heard about the battle in the courtyard last night, but Amanda and I are through, and that's the truth.
I'm sorry, I really am, because I know how much she means to you.
Well, the thing is, I just I need someone to talk to and, I mean, no heavy romance, just just a shoulder to lean on.
Well, you could lean on me, Kyle.
You think you could handle that? Yeah.
I think I'm feeling better already.
Ah, thank you.
You're welcome.
Doctor Larner? Doctor Mancini.
Yes, Doctor.
Thanks for meeting me on such short notice.
No, no, not at all, not at all.
You mentioned that you're a partner of Dr.
Cooper's? Yes, well, uh, ex-partner.
And, uh well, I feel obligated to let you know that, um, he's not the hot shot that he makes people think he is.
No? Oh, no.
In fact, he's really bad news.
Well I find that a little hard to believe considering the glowing recommendations he's received so far.
Yeah, well, I know he looks good on paper, but in reality, well he was thrown in jail for attacking me at the hospital.
Really? Mmm-hmm.
And not only that, but after that he had an affair with two of his coma patients, one of whom he's still dating.
And she's had a long and lively career as a high-rent call girl.
Really? And and that's her current occupation? Mmm-hmm.
And she's really bad for Coop.
You know, he can't focus on medicine when she's around.
I mean, who could? And then, well, he loses his concentration and then he loses his patients.
Well, I want to thank you for this input.
I'm going back tonight, and I'll certainly take it under advisement when I meet with the selection panel.
Well, just glad I can be of service.
Jeff.
I'm sorry I'm so late.
Where were you? Is everything okay? Uh, yeah.
Maybe, I don't know.
Want to go somewhere and talk about it? I don't know where to go.
I'm in love with you, but the idea of being in a public place is making me crazy.
You're a fabulous secret, but I just I don't know how to fit you into the rest of my life.
My world is Well, that's just why I thought it'd be better, you know, if I kind of eased you into my world.
Hey! So this is, uh, this is the future Mrs.
Baylor! Hi! I'm Doug, Jeff's smarter cousin.
Hey, Ernie! Ernie! Come over here, meet Jeff's fiancée.
Just back off a second, okay? I'm sorry, um Oh, you must be Samantha.
Yeah, Mom, we got to run.
Mrs.
Baylor I'm so glad you could make it.
Jeff has told us all about you.
And I must say, I've never seen him so happy.
Sam.
Sam.
No, no, just let me go.
I've got to get out of here.
Sam, look, I said I was sorry, okay? Look, I had no idea they were going to be so pushy.
I No, you know what? It It's good.
Hearing it out of their mouths, it makes it it makes it all real.
You know what's real? Is that I love you.
And, you know, I want you well, I want you to be my wife.
You're proposing now? Well, what's wrong with that? I'm a pretty good catch, you know.
There's a lot of women who'd love me to propose.
Well, go propose to one of them, then.
I'm not rushing into anything anymore.
I married Billy too fast without thinking about it.
It's what I always do.
It has to stop before I ruin other people's lives.
Sam, listen, you are overreacting.
No, actually, I'm I'm seeing things clearly for the first time.
You want the truth? I don't think I'm fit to be married to anyone.
But I am, to Billy.
And I have to go try to salvage that now.
I'm sorry.
Good-bye.
You know, I appreciate your seeing me off like this.
It's been a real pleasure meeting you both.
No, the pleasure's all mine.
And I'm really impressed with the direction you're taking the surgery department.
Well, it's no more impressive than your résumé.
Although I do understand you've had some personal problems.
But then, who hasn't.
I'm sorry.
What do you mean? What kind of problems are you talking about? Oh, it's nothing to mention.
And as I said, your credentials are impeccable.
I'd say you're one of our top three candidates.
Oh, that's great.
Uh, yeah, it is.
Look, uh, if you could just tell me You'll be hearing from us soon to schedule your final interviews in Philadelphia.
In fact, I better get to the airport if I'm going to set them up.
Let me just take care of the bar tab, and then we'll walk you to the limo.
Oh, great, thanks.
Thank you so much.
You know, I've only met you a couple of times, but I I feel as if know you so well.
Well, I'm sure we'll all get to know each other much better soon.
Not soon enough.
Okay, we all ready? Yeah.
Ready, willing and able.
Taylor! Megan's not here, and I haven't seen her all evening! I know that.
She's with Coop.
Probably nursing his wounds after Larner told him he wasn't suitable Philadelphia material.
What are you so happy about? Oh, well, it just seems like my life is getting back on track with Kyle.
Oh, Michael, he's being so nice to me! Took me to lunch.
We went for a walk.
Oh.
You know what? I think this moral thing that I'm trying out, it's really working for me.
Well, that's good, that's very good.
But how's your health insurance, Taylor? Oh, God.
My test showed something.
Oh, what? Is my concussion worse? Uh, actually, Taylor, it's a different part of your anatomy you should be worried about.
Um you're pregnant, Taylor.
Michael, that is a really bad joke.
Well, I'm sorry, the joke's on you because it's true.
Oh, this can't be happening.
Oh! Oh, why am I being punished? Oh, God! I don't even know who the father is.
Well, how long is the list? Well, it's short.
I mean, it's pretty short.
There's Kyle.
Yeah, yeah.
Who else? Well, there's Nick, but You slept with Nick? Well, yes, just once, it was kind of an accident.
And we did use protection.
Yeah, well, protection isn't always 100% safe, you know.
Well, then you're on the list, too, Michael.
I was kind of hoping you didn't remember that.
You were drunk yourself.
Pretty damn grateful, if I recall.
You'd just been kicked out of your job, and Megan had just left you, and you were pretty hot for me.
I know, I know, it's just I was hoping Michael, what am I going to do? Do you think this could be a good thing? Billy.
I feel so bad about the other night.
I'm the one who couldn't deal with what you were saying.
I'm the one who ran away.
It's just we haven't seen each other since then.
And I know that you've been avoiding me, and I'm I'm terrified that my big mouth has wrecked our whole relationship.
No.
Only, you have to understand there's no way we can act on the feelings you were talking about.
No.
Billy, I can't stand that.
I know that you want me as much I want you.
I can feel it, so don't lie to me.
I know I'm not imagining this.
Come to me tonight.
I can't.
Samantha's going to be home later.
Tell her you're going for another midnight run.
I need you tonight, Billy.
I need you to feel how much I love you.
I'll wait up.
Sam! I didn't know you were here.
Been waiting for you.
Well, you're never home this early anymore.
Well, I'm here now, aren't I? Oh, so you just decide to show up, I'm supposed to drop everything? No, no, no.
It's not like that.
Well, what is it like, then? You know, I can't figure it out.
You're cold, you're never around, you're Um What? What is this about? Um Billy, I'm sorry.
I know that I've been so distant from you lately, and I've been so involved in work and so gone.
Can you forgive me? Of course I forgive you.
It's nothing to forgive.
I just hope that Shut up.
