ANOTHER WORLD 106
Lindsay answers the door...
Lindsay (icily): Hi mom.
Stacey: May I come in?
Lindsay: I guess so.
Stacey: Where were you tonight?
Lindsay: I was with Greg.
Stacey: Gregory Hudson?
Lindsay (rolling her eyes and sighing): Yes mom.
Stacey: I was worried about you so I came to check on you.
Lindsay: I'm a big girl. I don't need a babysitter.
Stacey: You know what I'm getting sick and tired of your attitude.
Lindsay: Really mom? I'm getting tired of you trying to control my life.
Stacey: What happened to us? We used to be so close. It's like you can't even stand the sight of me. Every time we talk it turns into an argument.
Lindsay: Maybe it's because the two ton elephant in the room is the fact that you don't want me to tell Jake McKinnon that he's my biological father.
Stacey: We've been over this.
Lindsay: This is all about you and your stupid self-preservation.
Cass enters the living room...
Cass: Will you two stop?! I'm absolutely tired of the both of you constantly arguing. I'm taking Nicole to the hospital. She's not doing well.
Felicia and Mitch walk in...
Mitch (hanging up their coats, then pulls Felicia in close): It's time for our...nightcap.
He kisses Felicia but she doesn't kiss back...
Felicia: I'm tired.
Mitch: But you promised when we left the Harbor Club.
Felicia: May I ask you something?
Mitch: What is it dear?
Felicia: Did you go to KBAY the other day?
Mitch: Of course I did.
Felicia: Did you go anywhere else?
Mitch: I stopped at the Center to get a bite to eat. Why do you ask?
Felicia: How's Sharlene doing?
Mitch: Where is this coming from? We had a nice evening tonight and now you wanna pick a fight.
Felicia: Well forgive me for not being in the mood, especially since you conveniently didn't tell me that you were with Sharlene at the Center.
John and Gregory are on the living room couch...
Gregory: Lindsay and I patched things up.
John: I guess your making up session was the reason why you didn't show up to the Harbor Club. You're all smiles. It seems like she makes you happy.
Gregory: She does.
John: So you...still want to be with her despite your doubts?
Gregory: Seems like you're the one with reservations dad, and what happens between Lindsay and me is not your concern.
John: I'm your father, and your well being will always be my concern.
Sharlene comes to the top of the stairs and listens....
John: I'll be honest with you, son. I don't think she's right for you. She was evasive about Stacey, and goodness knows what else she's hiding from you.
Gregory: You're one to talk. Weren't you lying to mom when you were having an affair with Felicia?
Sharlene walks back into her bedroom a bit upset...and walks up to the mirror. Sharlene sees Janice again.
Janice: Hi sis.
CAMERA PAN ON SHARLENE...SLOW FADE TO THEME SONG...
John: That was a long time ago. Your mother and I have gotten past it. That's a different situation than yours and Lindsay's.
Gregory: Lindsay came clean. She told me everything.
John: I've been around the block a lot longer than you have. Girls like Lindsay don't volunteer the truth. They only come clean after they're caught. I don't know what her objective is, but don't think that your love is going to stop her from getting what she wants.
Gregory: Lindsay and I love each other, and I'm gonna continue to see her, no matter how you feel about it.
In the bedroom, Sharlene is talking to "Janice" in the mirror...
Janice: Felicia broke up your marriage all those years ago, didn't she?
Sharlene: Those are the key words...'years ago'. Meaning it's in the past.
Janice: Seems like it's still affecting my nephew. You know all I want is what's best for you. I want you to be happy.
Sharlene: You want Carl Hutchins.
Janice: I'm your big sister. I want to make sure that you're happy. I can take care of Felicia if you want. I can make your life better. All you have to do is let me out. There are things that have to be done.
Sharlene (covering her head): No! Stop it!
Downstairs, Sharlene grabs her coat...
John: Honey are you alright? Where are you going at this time of night?
Sharlene: I'll be right back.
Outside, a flustered Sharlene makes a call on her cell phone...
Sharlene: It's me. She's getting stronger. I don't know how much longer I can hold her off. Please call me when you get this.
AT THE BLAKE'S.
Mitch and Felicia talk as Mitch's cell phone on the coffee table says he has a voicemail.
Mitch: Honey it's not that big a deal. You're overreacting.
Felicia: Oh my God. You think I'm blowing this out of proportion or something? You didn't tell me you were going to have lunch with Sharlene.
Mitch: I ran into her, and we just had a cup of coffee. I never planned to meet her. Wait a second, Rachel told you.
Felicia: So what Rachel told me, that's not the point. YOU didn't tell me.
Felicia walks toward the bedroom in disgust.
Mitch: Come on we're not gonna end our evening like this, are we? This wasn't the nightcap we talked about at the Club,
Felicia throws a blanket and a pillow at Mitch.
Felicia: There's your nightcap, and you can have it on the sofa. Sweet dreams!
Felicia slams the bedroom door...
AT THE HOSPITAL...
Cass and Stacey are waiting for the prognosis on Nicole...
Stacey: Did you call Donna?
Cass: I get voicemail. I tried to give her a glass of water, and she couldn't even hold it. She just dropped it.
A doctor walks up to them...
Cass: What happened?
Doctor: Nicole had a stroke.
Cass: When can she come back home.
Doctor: We've notified a family member. I don't recommend she go home.
Stacey: Are you suggesting a hospice?
Doctor: I've studied her records, and her cancer has progressed. She just needs to made comfortable.
Cass: What are you saying doctor?
Doctor: She's got a few weeks left.
