#72 Friday, July 4th

Jim is back in Novi, his parents have driven him and the kids home.


Jim: You really didn't have to drive us home.

Eleanor: Just thought we'd help you out as much as possible.

After everything that has happened, we thought the last thing you wanted to do was take a long drive.

Jim: I appreciate the concern, but I'll be fine.

Eleanor: I think we should talk.


Elliot: I'll take the kids upstairs so you can talk.

Jim: Okay.

Elliot takes the kids upstairs.

Jim: Look, I know it seems like I'm a little on edge, but it's nothing to get alarmed about.

Eleanor: I'm going to ask you something and I hope you answer me honestly.

Jim: Of course.

Eleanor: Have you started drinking again?

Jim: No, how could you even think that?

Eleanor: You were always great at hiding it, but I eventually was able to figure it out anyway.

Jim: This is absurd.

Eleanor: Remember, you have two children to think about. Don't let something push you

so far over the edge that you destroy your life and can't be there for them.

Jim: Believe me, I know that.

Eleanor: I just hope if you have a problem, you'll tell it before it's too late.

Just then Lynette walks in the front door. Jim looks at her and scoffs.



Leigh as at the Donahue Ranch with Norm.


Leigh: So how's the rest of the plan coming on along?


Norm: It's moving along.

Leigh: How long before we can drop the bomb?

Norm: Patience. We don't even know how far Edmund and Christina's relationship will go.

Leigh: He was having coffee with her at his place this morning, I'd say it's going nicely so far.

Norm: It's still not time.

Leigh: I can't wait. A few tabloid headlines about Edmund being caught up with a black market ring leader and I'm sure the courts will question his judgment.

Norm: It's not a sure thing.

Leigh: What do you mean?

Norm: Remember, the McGregors hold a lot of clout around here, who knows what the judge could rule?

Leigh: Okay, I don't need the negativity from you right now.

Norm: Only trying to keep things realistic, as you should.

Leigh: You're right, I'm sorry I snapped at you. I take this very seriously.

Norm: I know. I wouldn't be doing this if getting your kids didn't mean so much to you.

Leigh: I want the opportunity to raise them the way I think they should be raised.

Norm: You might be a schemer, but you certainly are sincere. I like that about you, always have.



George is at the CoffeeRoom, Cassandra walks in holding the newspaper.


Cassandra: What are we going to do about this new annoyance Anna has sent out to do her bidding.


George: He's not that big of a problem, he's all talk.

Cassandra: I think you are underestimating him, he seemed serious.

George: I'm not worried, I've steamrolled right over guys like him.

Cassandra: Maybe I should handle him, I think I'm a better match to go up against him.

George: You taught me everything I know, you think I can't take this on?

Cassandra: That's not what I'm saying, I just think it would be better for me to deal with him.

George: You have a tendency to make things worse sometimes.

Cassandra: What?

George: Like when you didn't tell me about your whole little savings and loan fiasco, that almost cost us a lot.

Cassandra: That's not fair, it was years ago and I didn't think you needed to know.

George; Right, because it was so insignifcant.

Cassandra: Well, that has nothing to do with this, this is a completely different situation.

George: Mother, please let me take care of this. It's all just a stalling tactic by McGregor, it means nothing.

There's no who can stand in our way now.



Jim: If you are here to try to justify your actions some more, I don't want to hear it.


Lynette: I'm not, I was wondering you had come home yet and came to check on you and the kids.

Jim: Nice, you took time from your affair to come check in.

Lynette: I've tried to apologize.

Eleanor: An apology doesn't undo the damage.

Jim: Mom, don't start anything.

Eleanor: I want to talk to Lynette, privately.

Jim: I don't know if that's such a great idea.

Eleanor: I have some things I need to say.

Jim: All right.

Jim goes into the kitchen.

Eleanor: I really expected better of you.

Lynette: Could you try to understand that I feel horrible about this?

Eleanor: Are you asking me to feel sorry for you?

Lynette: Of course not.

Eleanor: Good, because if you were, I'd think you were insane.

Lynette: It's all very unfortunate.

Eleanor: My son is really on the edge right now, I think he might have started drinking again.

Lynette: My god.

Eleanor: For your children's sake, you better hope that he hasn't.

Lynette: I was afraid this would happen.

Eleanor: He told you about his drinking problem?

Lynette: A few years ago.

Eleanor: So you knew that this could push him over the edge, but you went ahead and hurt him anyway?

Lynette: No, I tried to make the marriage work to avoid hurting him.

Eleanor: You knew it wasn't going to work out, yet you lied and created false hope, only to then destroy

him. That was an incredibly reckless thing to do.

Lynette: I realize that now.

Eleanor: You know, I never imagined you of all people would do this, but I guess I was wrong. I really don't understand where your logic was, I just don't.



Aaron and Roberta walk into her law office.


Roberta: A lot of information about shareholders and shareholder agreements is here. Andrew had me archive it years ago.


Aaron: What about the company charter?

Roberta: I think I have a copy here. Andrew structured this company well to avoid takeovers, but Lightner found a loophole.

Aaron: I'd like to look over it.

Roberta looks in a file cabinet and pulls a folder.

Roberta: Here it is.

Aaron: Thank you. Looks pretty standard.

Roberta: I assume this is the first place the family looked when the company was taken over, but

there's not much in there that could help.

Aaron: It appears not.

Roberta: Another course of action is probably going to be your best bet.

Aaron: Do you know anything about Lightner's internal structure, things like their board, shareholders?

Roberta: Not in detail, since I've never worked with them.

Aaron: I've got some research to do then. I'll contact you if I find what I'm looking for.

Roberta: What are you looking for?

Aaron: The key to everything.

Aaron steps outside and makes a call on his cell phone.

Aaron: Nothing new yet, but I'm working on it. I'm on my way over now.

I have waited for so long for that convesation with Elanore and Lynnette. Such a powerful storyline indeed and it has so many angles.

Again I love the casting of Roberta and Aaron. I wonder who he is reporting to and what's going to be his story

Cassandra is going to take matters into her own hands, this out to be interesting

Hanvent seen Norm in a whil and it looks like he and Leigh are going to hook up. I wonder what bomb is she talking about. The suspene is really building and the business dialog was so great. Loved it. DO you have major in buiness or something?

Great episode Redd, a lot of things are cooking and buildning nice and slowly. I can't wait for the climaxes, esp Caandra. I just know she is going to get caught
