ANOTHER WORLD 99
Reginald is on people’s minds
Jake, Vicky, and Marley….
Jake: Can’t tell me what?
Marley thinks fast and pulls out an invitation from her purse.
Marley: The Harbor Club.
Jake: Donna’s reopening it right?
Marley: And you are cordially invited.
Jake (suspicious): That’s what the big secret was? An invitation?
Vicky (interjecting): Yes. I was gonna wine and dine you with a romantic dinner before the club opened to everyone else.
Marley: That’s right. She’s the owner’s daughter.
Vicky: It’s supposed to be a special evening for the both of us.
Marley: Well I gotta get to the doctor.
Jake: Vicky told me you guys are having a baby. Congratulations!
Marley: Thank you. If I don’t see you before the Harbor Club, I’ll see ya there.
Marley leaves and Vicky puts her arms on Jake’s shoulders.
Vicky: How’s the Firm?
Jake: We’re not doing too well. We might have to close up.
Vicky: I’m sorry to hear that.
Jake: But I’m gonna put my private investigative skills to use. What’s really going on Vic?
BAY CITY CENTER
Frankie is walking with a cup of coffee and Cass runs into her, and the coffee accidentally spills on Cass.
Frankie: Oh! Cass I’m so sorry.
Cass: It’s one of my better shirts. You’re paying for the dry cleaning.
They both laugh…
Frankie: Hopefully I’ll have enough money for it.
Cass: You know I’m kidding Frankie. What’s going on?
Frankie: I’m kind of bummed about the firm. It’s not doing well. Other than that I’m fine.
Cass: Are you going to Harbor Club re-opening?
Frankie: I got an invitation but I hadn’t planned on going.
Cass: Are you….waiting for someone to ask you?
Frankie (smiling): No…but I could be persuaded.
Allen is with Amanda as they wait with Nicole in the waiting area. Allen has his arm around Amanda’s shoulder.
Nicole: Are you two seeing each other?
Nicole: Well congratulations. You look like you make each other happy. The last time anyone made me happy was Cass…but that was a long time ago.
Allen: Amanda I’m sorry that the hearing didn’t turn out the way you wanted.
Amanda: I should have listened to my mother. I thought Iris would put our sisterhood above anything.
Allen: We’re talking about Iris here.
Amanda: You’re right. I should have known that Iris couldn’t be trusted.
Nicole: You can’t beat yourself over that.
A Doctor walks up to them…
Allen: Hey doc what’s going on? How’s my mother?
Doctor: I’m sorry. The cancer’s progressing.
Allen: Well…uh…what can we do?
Doctor: We can try more aggressive treatments.
Nicole: No. I don’t want ANY more chemotherapy.
CAMERA PAN ON NICOLE….SLOW FADE TO THEME SONG.
Marley is in her Dr. Lewis’s office, and he comes in to talk to her.
Dr. Lewis: Everything’s fine Mrs. Montgomery.
Dr. Lewis: Just keep the stress level to a minimum. With your age and ramifications of the smoke inhalation and your plastic surgery, you realize that this is a high risk pregnancy.
Marley: I somehow knew that fire would come back to haunt me later in life.
Dr. Lewis: I don’t mean to be a downer, but as your doctor I have to give you proper warning.
Marley: Thank you doctor.
BAY CITY CENTER
Cass and Frankie sit at a table.
Frankie: You know Charlie and I have gotten closer lately.
Cass: I am so glad that you two patched things up.
Frankie: Kirkland Harrison came into the office and asked if I investigate Grant, and then Charlie burst in and demanded that I not take his case. So I didn’t.
Cass: Why not? It would have paid pretty well.
Frankie: I did it for our daughter. I don’t want anything to ruin our relationship.
Cass: I would agree with that, but you never answered my question.
Frankie: I don’t recall you asking one.
Cass: Alright fair enough. Will you go out with me to the grand re-opening of the Harbor Club?
Frankie (smiling): Yes I will.
Vicky: Nothing. I just wanted to surprise you.
Jake: Are you sure that’s all that’s going on?
Vicky: Yep…that’s it.
Vicky kisses Jake on his lips.
Jake: So Donna finally got the funding she needed to open the Harbor Club back up?
Vicky: Yep…she did, but there’s one little caveat to all of that.
Jake: What is it?
Vicky: Grandfather is the sole investor.
Jake: I thought she would have had other ones lined up.
Vicky: He bought them all out.
Jake: Wow. Donna can’t be happy about that at all. I wish Bridget would see what Reginald really is.
Vicky: Right. He’s been toying with our lives for as long as I can remember, and I think Donna is mad as hell.
Jake: Her and Nicole. Do you think Donna’s gonna do something?
Vicky: I don’t know, but after everything Reginald has done, he’s gonna pay at some point.
Nicole: I can’t go through this again. It seems like every five minutes I want to vomit. I feel tired all the time. I don’t wanna go through that again.
Allen: You sound like you wanna give up. We just found each other.
Nicole: I’m not giving up…just letting go.
Allen becomes angry.
Allen: Damn REGINALD! This is all HIS fault!
Amanda: Maybe we should give Nicole a moment to think about it.
Allen: Mom please…do the aggressive chemo. I don’t want to lose you.
Amanda: Come on Allen. Let’s go.
Amanda and Allen walk outside of the waiting area, and Allen continues to express his anger.
Allen: Reginald did this to my mother.
Amanda: I know but you’ve got to calm down.
Allen: Mom doesn’t want to fight Reginald anymore, that’s why she wants to give up. Maybe she’ll want to live if I take him out.
Amanda: Now you STOP it! You cannot threaten to kill Reginald again.
Amanda: I heard you the first time you threatened his life. You’ve got to focus on helping Nicole.
Allen: Getting rid of Reginald WILL help her.
