#76 Wednesday, July 16th

Cassandra comes into George's office.


George: Mother, what's wrong? You look like you've seen a ghost.


Cassandra: I may have.

George: What are you talking about?

Cassandra: You'll just think I'm crazy.

George: If it's gotten you this spooked, then I want to hear what it is.

Cassandra: I think I saw you're father.

George: How can that be, Mother? He died twelve years ago.

Cassandra: I was driving down the boulevard and I saw a man in a town car and I could have sworn it was him.

George: It probably was just someone that looked like him.

Cassandra: No, I'd know his face anywhere.

George: I think you need to sit down and take a breath.

Cassandra sits down.

Cassandra: I know it doesn't make any sense, but I know what I saw.

George: It's probably just stress from everything that's been going on.

Sometimes our minds play tricks on us when we have too much on our plate, it's happened to me.

Cassandra: Maybe you're right, but something just tells me it was him I saw.

George: We both know that's not possible.

Cassandra: I know, I know. It's just bothering me so, I can't get it out of my head.

George: Now probably isn't the right time to tell you this, but you're going to find out anyway, so.

Cassandra: What?

George: The judge put up an injunction, we can't legally make any changes at M.I. yet

Cassandra: Great, just fantastic.


Later, John is in his office at Phelps Motors, Anna has just walked in.


John: Sorry you had to come over here, I had some work to do here and couldn't get away, but I wanted to give you this

news in person.


Anna: Good news?

John: Yes, the judge put the injunction in place.

Anna: Terrific.

John: It buys us a bit of time.

Anna: Now all we have to do is find out if Cassandra and George did anything illegal.

John: That's why we need as much time as we can get, before Lightner can appoint an interim board

to M.I.

Anna: He's got his cronies waiting in the wings. Have you looked over the documents George gave you.

John: I've been pouring over them, nothing incriminating so far. They've covered their tracks well. I did

find something interesting though, Sterling was very involved with Lightner just before the shareholders revolt even started.

Anna: Probably up to his old tricks.

John: That's my guess, but we need the proof.

Anna: Where do we get the proof though?


In an office, Andrew is typing on a computer, looking through documents about Cassandra's problems with Silver Hills Savings and Loan.


Andrew: Aaron, have you been able to find out how long this Sterling guy held shares with M.I.?


Aaron: Since about 2004.

Andrew: He's kind of shady, I'm wondering if he's the key to everything.

Aaron: It's possible.

Andrew: This is all very confusing, how does a strong company get taken over?

Aaron: It's supposed to have to do with some study that no one has ever seen.

Andrew: That's even more shady.

Aaron: I'm going to phone John Phelps, see if we can compare notes.

Andrew: Hold the phone for a minute, I may have found something in these documents.

Aaron: What?

Andrew: It looks like Sterling worked with Cassandra during the time of the bank failure. There's even a telephone transcript.

Aaron: Sterling's worked a lot of places, so that probably won't do us much good.

Andrew: We could possibly make a connection between the two. With Sterling's history of shafting companies,

it could show they were in cahoots on the takeover.

Aaron: It's worth a shot.

Andrew: I'll print this off and you take it to Anna, I'm sure she can make use of it.



Lynette is at the CoffeeRoom


Greg: So he served you with divorce papers? That's what he meant when he told me he did something.


Lynette: You talked to him?

Greg: I ran into him at Guido's and we had a talk. He's in terrible shape.

Lynette: I still just feel so awful, this could have been avoided.

Greg: It's not all your fault, I let myself get too close to you.

Lynette: Well, I just came over to give you the number of where I'll be staying.

Greg: You could have stayed with me if you wanted to.

Lynette: I have a room at the Town and Country Inn, I really think it would be

appropriate I stay there until this divorce is over. Besides, I'm going to be keeping the kids for awhile, it's best this way.

Greg: You're right.

Lynette: As soon as this divorce is finalized, we'll take things from there.

Greg: I understand completely, it shouldn't be any other way. I can wait.

Lynette: In the meantime, I really going to be worried about Jim, I just don't know how he's going to take this.

Greg: Hope for the best.

Lynette: I've got to run, or I'm going to be late picking the kids up from kindergarten.

Greg: See you later.


Jim is at home, sitting at a desk with a bottle of wine and a half empty glass. He's talking on the telephone to a divorce lawyer.


Jim: I need this divorce to go through as fast as possible. What do you mean it will take that long? I want it over and done with. Isn't there anyway to expedite thing? If you find a way, call me please. Thanks (hangs up)

Jim pours himself another glass of wine, then pulls a piece of paper out of his pocket with the number of the woman that sold him the Valium scribbled on it. He calls the number.

Jim: Listen, those pills you gave me, I'm down to my last one. How much is it going to cost me to get more? I'm good for it.

Jim conitunes down his bad path. I was surprised Gregg offered Lynn to stay with him. This is a very well written triangle and I saw that because I am rooting for Lynn/Jim and Lynn/Gregg. So great job on that one. THat truly takes skills to pull something off. And It's a triangle with all good people. THose are another hard trianlge to write. It's your other hottest story redd. I can't wait to read more.

Again more M.I. drama I truly love it and I keep repeating myself, but you really have some of the clearest cut dialog on SONOP. Another good one.
