Carl confronts Iris



blogentry-14971-0-66333800-1360374833_thand Staceyblogentry-14971-0-33822700-1360374842_th have a conversation while they sit on the couch, eating breakfast...

Cass: I sure miss the good cooking.

Stacey: Judging from what was in the fridge, you haven't had a good home cooked meal in a while.

Cass: I left all the kitchen to duties to Frankie and Lila.

Stacey: You mean Lila the liar.

Cass: Stace, don't even start. Lila and I mostly had a great marriage.

Stacey: What about Frankie?

Cass: Frankie and I had Charlie.

Stacey: You also had a date the other night. How did that go?

Cass: It went very well actually.

Stacey: That's...good.

Cass: Frankie taught me how to be a family man.

Stacey: What about Kathleen?

Cass: Kathleen and I never got a chance because of her going into witness protection.

Stacey: Are you discounting what she meant to you?

Cass: No, of course not. I loved Kathleen with all my heart.

Stacey: And Nicole?

Cass: Nicole has been through a lot in her life, and I hope she recovers. I loved Nicole, too, and then I found out that she let Felicia take the rap for Jason Frame's death.

Stacey: And then there's lying Lila.

Cass: Lila and I had a great marriage, and a wonderful family. She helped me raise Charlie and I think of Jasmine as my own daughter, but Frankie seems to trump them all. She made me a better man back then, and she's making me one all over again. I'm falling in love with her again.




blogentry-14971-0-34258800-1360375678_th and Bridgetblogentry-14971-0-65056000-1360375687_th are in Bridget's bedroom. Jake drags a dresser from one end of the room to the other.

Bridget (sitting at her desk watching Jake): You're doing a great job dad. Thanks for helping me move my room around. It needed a new look.

Jake: From the looks of things, I'M the only one rearranging things.

Bridget: Have the police found anything about Grandpa Reginald?

Jake: They made an announcement about that on the news. Are you still salty about what your mom and I said about him?

Bridget: That's not the person I saw. I know he loved me.

Jake: I'm sorry honey. Your mother and I wouldn't lie to you about that.

Jake suddenly falls to the floor in pain grabbing his leg...

Bridget: Dad?

Jake: I think I hurt my knee.




blogentry-14971-0-53951000-1360376029_th walks into her newly painted and re-arranged office. With her back to the door, is in her office pouring a cup of coffee. Suddenly Carl blogentry-14971-0-38330300-1360375942_thtouches her shoulder...

Iris (startled): Ahh!! What the hell are you doing here?

Carl: You need to give up Cory Publishing.



Cass: What about you sis?

Stacey: What about me?

Cass: Since you've recounted my love life, it's time we take inventory of yours.

Stacey: I've had love. I mean I lost Jamie's baby, and Derek and I have been on and off again. Having Lindsay was the best that ever happened to me. I thought after losing my first child, I thought I never could have children.

Cass: Miracles do happen.

Stacey: The circumstances for which Lindsay was conceived may have been questionable, but I love Lindsay with all my heart, and I will do anything to protect her.

Cass: Do you think that you are protecting Lindsay by keeping her from revealing the truth about Jake being her father.

Stacey: Derek is her father in every way that counts. It's no different than you and Charlie. I don't want Lindsay ruining their family. Jake is happy with Vicky and Bridget.

Cass: It sounds like you're trying to protect someones else besides Lindsay and the McKinnons.

Stacey: Who could that possibly be Cass?

Cass: Yourself...your heart? I think you have feelings for Jake.




blogentry-14971-0-68648300-1360376697_th examines Jake's knee in an exam area.

John: Seems like you strained some ligaments. What were you doing?

Jake: I was re-arranging Bridget's room for her.

Bridget: He was pushing my bed. He must have hurt his knee doing that.

Jake: Am I gonna need surgery?

John: No. Physical therapy should put you on the road to recovery. I'm going to go set up an appointment for you.

John leaves Jake and Bridget alone.

Bridget: I'm so sorry dad.

Jake: For what?

Bridget: I should have helped you move the bed.


blogentry-14971-0-33859600-1360376959_th walks by, notices Jake and Bridget, and listens...

Jake: Why in the world are you apologizing? I'll do anything for you. You're my little girl.

Lindsay observes Jake and Bridget hugging...


Iris: You came all the way up here to tell me that Carl. You have way too much time on her hands. Then again, you are married to Rachel.

Carl: This office looks like one...big...orange.

Iris: It's a new day at Cory Publishing. I wanted all traces of Rachel out of here.

Carl: This is affecting my marriage.

Iris: I'm sorry, but your marriage is not my problem.

Carl: You should reconsider splitting the company up equally to Mac's children.

Iris: Don't you utter my father's name. Since when did you ever care about what Mac wanted? You hated him.

Carl: Old grudges die hard don't they?

Iris: Yes they do. I will NEVER forgive you for trying to kill daddy.

Carl: Perhaps I should take the same approach with you. You shot me at my wedding after Evan put real bullets in the gun you used. I want this war between you and Rachel to stop.

Iris: Clearly my former stepmommy isn't capable of making sound decisions. She married YOU didn't she?

Carl: What's the matter? Are you jealous?

Iris (laughing): Are you serious? Rachel is jealous because she can't be here running the company.

Carl: Why did I think I could ever reason with you?

Carl walks out...

Iris (yelling out): Maybe the old bitch should retire!

So many great scenes in this. I loved Carl's line about "one...big...orange." I like the Bridget/Jake bonding moment and Lindsay overhearing.

I keep forgetting LK plays Stacey in this, and that she got back together with Derek. Stacey was so judgmental, and you really pick up on this in your writing.

I had to infuse some humor with Carl and Iris...

That Jake/Bridget bonding moment is poignant, especially to Lindsay...

Stacey needs to be called out on her motives...I think she wants to protect Lindsay as well as herself...

Thanks Carl
