Quand le père de Sandy vient voir Eric et Lucy en leur disant qu'il va aider sa fille, ils se demandent où il a pu trouver tout cet argent.

Martin pense que c'est le moment d'annoncer à son père que lui et Sandy attendent un enfant.

Simon qui a des problèmes d'argent va voir chaque membre de la famille pour demander de l'aide. Mais personne ne veut l'aider, il demande donc de l'aide à sa soeur Mary qui accepte de l'aider.

Ruthie commence à collecter des étiquettes de soupe car grâce à une programme financé par Campbell elle peut gagner un ordinateur pour le journal de l'école qui en a bien besoin.

Eric demande à Simon qui l'a aidé à payer ses factures. Quand ce dernier lui répond que c'est Mary, Eric est furieux et lui raccroche au nez. 

Glenoak Community Church

Door: (knocks)

Edward: I'm looking for the Reverend Lucille Kinkirk.

Eric: Oh, it's Lucy and she's out this morning making some hospital calls. I'm her father.

Edward: Oh, what a coincidence, I am too... a, a father.

Eric: Well, sit down, why don't you? I'm guessing you must be Sandy's father.

Edward: I must be.

Edward/Eric: (laughs)

Edward: I was hoping to see Lucille.

Eric: Lucy...

Edward: That's the one. Ah, I, I wanted to drop something off for my daughter. I found it.

Eric: You found it?

Edward: Well, at the bank. Tell Lucille not to give it to her all at once, she'll know why... problems in the past.

Phone: (rings)

Eric: Excuse me for a second.

Simon's Apartment

Eric: Hello...?

Simon on Phone: Hey, Dad, how's it goin'?

Eric on Phone: Ah, well, I, I have somebody in the office.

Simon on Phone: Oh, this won't take but a second. I just need to borrow like... a hundred bucks until my next paycheck.

Eric on Phone: I'm not paying for the ring.

Simon on Phone: No, no, no, no, I'm, paying for the ring. Which is why I'm having just a little trouble making the rest of my bills...

Simon on Phone: ...but I'll be all caught up as soon as I get my next paycheck.

Eric on Phone: No, I'm sorry, I can't help you out.

Edward: Ah, you can take some out of that if you need it.

Simon on Phone: Look Dad, I could...

Simon on Phone: ...probably borrow it from someone else, but I'm coming to you first.

Eric on Phone: Well, I appreciate that, but I still can't help you out.

Simon on Phone: Dad, they're gonna cut off my phone service.

Eric on Phone: Well, that's hardly an emergency. You can always get the phone turned back on.

Edward: Absolutely... they, they do it all the time.

Eric on Phone: Simon, I, I have somebody in the office, I, I really have to go. Good luck.

Glenoak Community Church - Church Office

Edward: Just give that to Lucille. She'll know what to do.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Ruthie: I got it.

Eric: Dinner?

Ruthie: No, a project, a project that helps other people, a project that I can get involved in so I can date any guy I want.

Eric: So you can get some balance in your life and some perspective on dating and how that fits into the greater scheme of things.

Ruthie: Yes...

Eric: And all that's gonna come from eating soup?

Ruthie: We've been collecting labels from cans of Campbell's Soup, and if we get enough, we'll be able to get a computer for the school newspaper and hopefully get the school paper going this year.

Eric: That's great. How many labels do you need?

Ruthie: I don't know exactly... hundreds.

Eric: By...?

Ruthie: Thanksgiving, but they started last year. I'm not sure how many more we need, but when we reach our goal, we'll be able to get the computer and hopefully we'll be back in business by the first of this year. Isn't that great?

Eric: Yeah... are you gonna be on the newspaper staff?

Ruthie: Do I have to be on the newspaper staff? I'm just helping the newspaper staff get what they need. I'm doing it for others.

Eric: So you can get something for yourself.

Ruthie: I get a guy.

Eric: So basically, it's labels for dating.

Ruthie: It's Campbell's Labels for Education. And, I hope you're not disappointed, I'm really excited about this.

Eric: All right, it sounds like a worthwhile project and, you know, school newspaper are very important. When I was a kid, we, used to collect these Blue Horse labels and they... some other time.

Ruthie: I'm going over to Kevin's and Lucy's. Kevin makes soup all the time. He practically lives on soup.

Eric: If you see Luce, tell her to call me.

Recording: We're sorry, you have reached a number that has been disconnected or no longer in service. If you feel you reached this recording in error, please hang up...

Eric: Simon, Simon, Simon.

Annie: (sighs)

Annie: Oh, thanks.

Annie: (sighs)

Eric: Is there anything else in the car?

Annie: No, no, this is it.

Eric: Did you leave the boys at the market?

Annie: Did I leave the boys at the market?

Eric: It was just my way of asking where Sam and David are. Oh no, oh no, no, no, I'm on my way, I'm on my way.

Camden's House - Backyard

Sam: You forgot to pick us up.

David: Yeah, you forgot.

Eric: How'd you get here?

David: Uncle Kevin.

Sam: Yeah, we called Uncle Kevin from the school office, and he picked us up and he took us for ice cream. And we got to feed Savannah.

Eric: Ah, I am so sorry, and ah, I'm just happy you are safe, and that was the right thing to do, going back into the school and calling an adult. I wonder why your teacher didn't call me.

David: We told her you're at work, you're always at work, and mommy had other things to do today. So we told her to call Uncle Kevin.

Sam: Yeah, we like Uncle Kevin. He's a fun dad.

Eric: Yeah, of course, I can also be fun.

Sam/David: Not really.

Kevin: Just wanted to make sure you were still home. Ruthie's watching Savannah and counting Campbell's Soup cans.

Eric: Thank you...

Eric: (groans)

Eric: Thank you for picking them up... I just... I, I got so distracted with... everything.

Kevin: Everything like Martin?

Eric: Yeah, well, he promised Lucy he's gonna tell his dad tonight.

Kevin: Who's gonna tell Ruthie?

Eric: I'm sure that when the dust settles in a couple of days, he'll come over and have a conversation with her.

Kevin: You're sure?

Eric: No, I'm hoping.

Kevin: All right, I better get back over there.

Eric: Oh... wait, wait. Um, Sandy's father came by to see Lucille, uh Lucy and um she wasn't in, so he gave this to me. Think he could have stolen it? There's almost three-thousand dollars in there. He said it came from a bank, but...

Kevin: I could call the guys down at the station, see of anything's been reported, but... this stuff looks old, too old to be in a bank drawer...

Kevin: (sniffs)

Kevin: ...and it smells like it's been drowned in some kind of whiskey, some kind of really cheap, awful whiskey.

Eric: Tell Lucy to call me. Evidently, she's phone less today.

Kevin: My fault. I washed her jeans with the phone in them. New one's on the way.

Eric: (nods)

Eric: You're otherwise doing a very good job with everything. I hope she lets you know that.

Batting Cages

Martin: Come on, wanna try it?

Meredith: No, really, I'm not sporty... athletic... whatever.

Martin: Are you getting bored?

Meredith: I'm never bored when I'm with you, but if you're tired of me staring at you, I can go home.

Martin: I could never be tired of you staring at me.

Meredith: Really?

Martin: Really.

Meredith: Thanks.

Martin: Ah, here's the thing...

Meredith: What thing?

Martin: I love you.

Meredith: I love you, too. What thing?

Martin: You know this might be my last semester at school.

Meredith: Well, except for baseball... you're gonna stick around for baseball season, right?

Martin: Well... I might have the opportunity to ah, play for a farm league.

Meredith: What's a farm league?

Martin: The minor leagues.

Meredith: This spring?

Martin: Maybe... so... you know, I might be going off somewhere to play ball, which means I wouldn't be around all the time.

Meredith: So... the thing is that you love me but... you're breaking up with me?

Martin: No, no, no, nothing like that. It's just that because I love you I wish I could just stay in high school forever, but I have to think about my career. If that's going to be baseball, then I'm gonna have to do what baseball players do, and that's travel all the time and make no money and spend years doing that with no real life other than trying to get to the show... the major leagues.

Meredith: I understand.

Martin: Do you?

Meredith: Oh, well, if the thing is, you want me to wait for you while you're traveling all-round the country playing baseball, then, I'll will. Because that's who you are, and you should be able to do whatever you want to do and pursue whatever dreams you have without me getting in the way, and I won't get in the way. I'll just be around anytime you want me to be around, and maybe one day you'll want me around all the time.

Martin: I want you around all the time now, but I just think it could be along time before I can settle down and have like a normal life with a wife and a family and a house and all that.

Meredith: I'm only a junior in high school. I think I'm probably gonna wanna go away to college. I mean, I know I'm gonna wanna go away to college, since I want to be a social worker. I think it's gonna be a long time before I'm ready to settle down and have a real, normal life with a husband and a family and a house and all of that.

Martin: Maybe I could come by later tonight, after dinner. I'll call you.

Meredith: Okay.

Kinkirk's House - Kitchen

Lucy: Sorry, sorry, sorry. Myrna's doctor was running late, but when he finally got there, he had good news for her.

Kevin: I made a salad and chicken noodle soup.

Lucy: Perfect... I need some comfort food. What a day. What... is someone eating with us?

Kevin: No, I just opened a few cans because Ruthie's collecting Campbell's Soup labels.

Lucy: For school?

Kevin: Yeah, they're trying to get a new computer so they can get the school paper going again.

Lucy: Has Martin called?

Kevin: Nope...

Lucy: (sighs)

Lucy: I hope he goes through with this.

Kevin: Me, too. Oh, by the way, Sandy's dad stopped by the church and left this with your dad... three-thousand dollars.

Lucy: It stinks.

Kevin: Yeah, I know... like alcohol.

Lucy: I thought he didn't have any money. Where'd did he get this?

Kevin: I have no idea, but there haven't been any recent robberies. I was thought maybe he robbed a liquor store or something.

Lucy: I should call him.

Kevin: You better eat first.

Lucy: Thanks for taking such good care of me and Savannah.

Kevin: My pleasure.

Lucy: You think Martin could ever feel the way you do about Sandy and the baby? Do you think that's a possibility at all?

Kevin: Not really, no.

Lucy: Couldn't you have said "maybe"?

Kevin: Maybe...

Kevin: By the way, Simon called and asked if he could borrow a hundred bucks

Lucy: And?

Kevin: And he called Matt, and Matt called me, and he doesn't have a hundred bucks, and if he did, he wouldn't contribute to the Simon and Rose fund.

Lucy: Good...

Camden's House - Kitchen

Ruthie: That was such a good idea, letting everyone pick their own soup. I got five labels now and with Kevin's that's ten.

Annie: Kevin made five cans of soup?

Ruthie: He said he eats a lot, but I know he's just trying to help me out.

Annie: He's a good guy, Kevin.

Ruthie: Yeah, he is. I hope I have a husband like that someday.

Annie: Ah, me, too, in the meantime, who do you got your eyes on?

Ruthie: Right now, I'm just giving the Campbell's Labels for Education project my full attention.

Annie: How'd you get involved? Is Jack involved?

Ruthie: How'd you know?

Annie: Mothers know everything.

Ruthie: He asked me if I'd help, and I thought, why not?

Annie: So that's who you're going to date, hopefully? Jack? Not Brian?

Ruthie: Yeah, for one thing, Jack has a car, and for another thing Brian's on the baseball team and...

Annie: And that may not work in case Martin and Meredith every break up.

Ruthie: But, I'm not totally ruling our Brian, he's hot, he's really hot, but I just think Jack's a bit more my type.

Annie: You know I was thinking, tomorrow morning, I'll make tomato soup and put it in the thermoses with a sandwich for the boys' lunch. Wouldn't that be nice? That way you'll have another label.

Ruthie: And if you made my lunch, that would be another label, and dad's lunch, that would be three labels, and if you ate soup for lunch too, that would be four. Thanks. Jack is going to be really excited when he fins out how many labels I can get. I'm gonna get that computer in no time. And I'm going to have a date.

Simon's Apartment

Simon: Remind me to save the labels. Ruthie wants them for school.

Rose: I'll get her some from home, too. Sandy eats soup all the time.

Simon: (nods)

Simon: Good. It'd be nice to do something for Ruthie and maybe my family would like me better.

Rose: I'd help you out with the phone bill, but I have to pay for the dress.

Simon: I know. I'm getting more hours at the radio station next week so um, I should hopefully get a bigger paycheck, and get my cell phone back and hopefully I won't have this problem next month.

Rose: You know, the other phone, the apartment phone, is disconnected, too.

Simon: Yeah, I know. I lost that one first. I have to pay the deposit again.

Rose: It'll be fine, all couples have money problems. You can use my cell phone if you need to make a call.

Simon: Thanks, I might need to do that.

Rose: You know someone else you could borrow a hundred bucks from?

Simon: I might. I think I'm gonna finish this soup first.

Rose: Don't worry, Simon, we're in this life together. We're going to be fine.

Simon: I hope so.

Rose: The designer, the one in San Francisco? He called and he has a veil that would go perfectly with the dress. I'm not asking you to buy it. I'm sure when my parents get back and they find out we're making plans and I have a ring, they'll take care of all the expenses.

Simon: And if they don't?

Rose: Then they don't.

Simon: Couldn't you just call them and say I have a ring and I bought a dress and I found a veil and everything's just getting a little too expensive for something that's not happening until a year from May?

Rose: I think it would be best to tell them in person. You know, so I can get them excited, as excited as I am.

Simon: (sigh)

Simon: When are they getting back again?

Rose: They almost always come back to the States during the holidays, maybe they'll even be here for Thanksgiving, and if not Thanksgiving, then Christmas for sure. But if they don't come back, we could spend the holidays in their house in Glenoak so we can stay together... together, together, just the two if us.

Simon: Um, I'm pretty sure my family is gonna want me to be at home with them.

Rose: Simon, you've already compromised and made me move out of your apartment. I think it's only fair if you let me have my way on a few things. I have to pick up Sandy at the library. See ya'.


Sandy on Phone: Where did he get the money?

Lucy on Phone: I don't know.

Sandy on Phone: Not that I matters, I'm gonna need money.

Lucy on Phone: Well, it's a lot of money and he asked me not to give it to you all at once.

Sandy on Phone: I'm not an addict. I'm not an alcoholic. It's not like I'm gonna blow it getting high.

Lucy on Phone: It's just that... having a lot of cash around could be a temptation.

Sandy on Phone: Look, I've been sober for five years.

Sandy on Phone: Okay, that's a lifetime ago.

Lucy on Phone: But remember, you told me you got sober only to start substituting your addictions with guys.

Lucy on Phone: That's an addiction all in itself.

Sandy on Phone: I gave it up.

Lucy on Phone: When?

Sandy on Phone: A long time ago.

Sandy on Phone: Until Simon, I was doing fine.

Lucy on Phone: Until Simon?

Sandy on Phone: Yeah, Simon. I slipped, bit at least I slipped because I really thought I cared about him.

Sandy on Phone: Really...

Sandy on Phone: It's was Martin that I didn't care about. I wish I hadn't done that.

Lucy on Phone: All right, all right, let's not do that again.

Sandy on Phone: I want the money.

Lucy on Phone: All right, it's your money, but maybe you'll let me decide the best way to use that money.

Lucy on Phone: You're gonna have a lot of expenses coming up, especially since you don't have insurance.

Sandy on Phone: How was he?

Lucy on Phone: How was... you dad?

Lucy on Phone: I didn't see him, but from what my dad says...

Lucy on Phone: ...he was pretty much they way I described him when I saw him.

Sandy on Phone: I can't believe my mother never told me he was a drunk. You know, that would have helped when I was hating myself for drinking.

Lucy on Phone: Or it maybe it would have given you someone to blame when instead you took responsibility for your own problems and got help.

Lucy on Phone: I mean, that's really commendable.

Lucy on Phone: You are a very a responsible young woman and I know that you are gonna be responsible for yourself and the baby.

Sandy on Phone: How do you manage to always make me feel so good when I'm feeling so lousy?

Lucy on Phone: Do I?

Sandy on Phone: Luce, I don't know what I'd be doing right now without you.

Lucy on Phone: Well, I'm happy I to help. Look, about Simon...

Sandy on Phone: It was last year. The baby is Martin's.

Lucy on Phone: I guess I should tell you that Martin is talking to his dad tonight.

Sandy on Phone: Well his dad's a Marine. I hope he doesn't kill him.

Lucy on Phone: He won't.

Sandy on Phone: Then I hope he doesn't kill Simon.

Rose: Who won't kill Simon?

Sandy: Um, I'm talking to Lucy.

Lucy on Phone: Sandy, Sandy, listen to me.

Lucy on Phone: Don not let Rose and Simon know you have money right now, okay? They don't need to know.

Sandy on Phone: I'm not an idiot.

Lucy on Phone: I know that. I'll call you tomorrow, okay?

Sandy on Phone: Okay, bye.


Rose: What was that about?

Sandy: Nothing, okay?

Rose: You can tell me now or tell me later, 'cause you know you will.

Sandy: Let's go.

Brewer's House

Martin: (clearing throat)

Beau: Smoke getting to you?

Martin: Uh, no, not really.

Martin: (clearing throat)

Beau: Something happened with Meredith?

Martin: No, Meredith's fine.

Beau: She's a great girl. I really like her, good choice. Ut-oh... you and Meredith, didn't do anything. Are you two...?

Martin: No... no, no

Beau: (nods)

Beau: Well, if you and Meredith do decide to have sex, I hope you'll be a responsible man and not take any chances. But more than that, I hope you'll decide to wait. You're still young. You got plenty of time. But whatever you decide, you can always talk to me, you know that, don't you, son?

Martin: I know that. Thanks.

Kinkirk's House - Kitchen

Kevin: Yeah, I had a feeling. I wonder of Rose knows that Sandy is one of Simon's... conquests.

Lucy: I wondered that, too. Maybe, if she doesn't know and finds out, maybe she'll get angry and give him back the ring.

Kevin: Poor guy, imagine Simon going broke paying for a ring that's in his pocket.

Lucy: They just better not borrow any money from Sandy

Kevin: Just because Martin said he was gonna talk to his dad tonight, doesn't mean he's going to.

Lucy: He's going to. He promised.

Brewer's House

Martin: Really good burgers.

Beau: Four burgers is a lot of burgers. Would you like another one? I can throw a couple more on the grill.

Martin: No, no...

Beau: Stop... just tell me what's going on, son. Before you make yourself sick cramming food down your throat so you won't have to talk to me. You signed up, didn't you? Is that it? You think you wanna be a Marine?

Martin: Maybe...

Beau: Martin, Martin, this is not what I want for you. You're not me. You're good in school, you're smart. You got a lot of options. You can go to college. You got a shot at becoming a pro ball player. Look, I know I haven't been around the last few years, but we've stayed close, you and me. I thought you could tell me anything, son. You know that. Why didn't you tell me you were thinking about this? Why couldn't you at least talk it through with me?

Martin: I don't know.

Camden's House - Attic Room

Phone: (rings)

Ruthie on Phone: Hello?

Jack on Phone: Ruthie? It's Jack.

Ruthie on Phone: Yeah... hi. I'm glad you called. I'm really excited about this Campbell's Label for Education project.

Ruthie on Phone: My family's gonna help, too.

Ruthie on Phone: My dad's even going to put it in the church bulletin so we can get labels from the entire congregation.

Ruthie on Phone: That's hundreds of people.

Jack on Phone: Wow... I wish you'd gotten involved earlier. I was just calling to say thanks for volunteering. You know I'm the editor of the newspaper, right?

Jack on Phone: That is assuming we can get it going again.

Ruthie on Phone: No, I didn't know.

Jack on Phone: I was just wondering if you're interested in joining the newspaper staff?

Ruthie on Phone: I don't know.

Jack on Phone: It's just that the staff is...

Jack on Phone: ...usually made up if juniors and seniors, but I could try to get you on if you want.

Ruthie on Phone: No, that's okay.

Jack on Phone: But why would you be doing all that work if you...

Jack on Phone: ...don't even want to work on the newspaper?

Ruthie on Phone: Well... you know... I just like to help people. My people like to help people. It's in my blood.

Jack on Phone: You're funny.

Ruthie on Phone: I'm funny?

Jack on Phone: You're not just doing this so you can hang out with me, are you?

Ruthie on Phone: You've got some ego, you know that?

Jack on Phone: Oh come on you like me.

Ruthie on Phone: No, I don't.

Jack on Phone: I like you, too. Ruthie...?

Ruthie on Phone: I'm here.

Jack on Phone: I'd like to go out with you. I think it's kind of cute that you'd go around collecting hundreds of soup labels for me.

Ruthie on Phone: I'm not cute. I like you, but I don't like you calling me cute.

Jack on Phone: But... you are cute.

Ruthie on Phone: No, I'm not.

Jack on Phone: All right, we can argue about whether or not you're cute some other time. I just wanted...

Jack on Phone: ...to say thanks for helpin' out.

Ruthie on Phone: That's it? That's the only reason you called?

Jack on Phone: So, who are you dating?

Ruthie on Phone: No one right now. I'm kind of taking a break.

Jack on Phone: From...?

Ruthie on Phone: From lying to my parents about a guy's age just so I can go out with him.

Jack on Phone: So you can't date right now?

Ruthie on Phone: Not tonight... no, but soon.

Jack on Phone: So when you're allowed to go out again, you know I'm still eighteen and your mom and dad know that.

Ruthie on Phone: They've decided that I can make my own decision about who I want to date.

Jack on Phone: That's your punishment for lying? I wish I lived at your house.

Ruthie on Phone: That's my reward for getting involved with a school project. My parents want me to have some balance in my life...

Ruthie on Phone: ...do something for other people.

Jack on Phone: Oh, I knew I'd get to the bottom of this sooner of later.

Jack on Phone: So, I'll see you at school tomorrow.

Ruthie on Phone: Okay...

Jack on Phone: Let me know when you can go out with me.

Ruthie on Phone: Okay.

Jack on Phone: Good night...

Ruthie on Phone: Good night...

Camden's House - Kitchen

Recording: We're sorry, you have reached a number that is disconnected or no longer in service. If you feel you have reached this recording in error...

Eric: Oh, hi, Martin. Were you looking for Lucy?

Martin: Ah, no, this time I'm looking for you. I know you know... I know everyone knows.

Eric: Does your dad know? Did you tell him? Are you okay?

Martin: I just, I just lied to him. I told him I joined the Marines. I can't. I can't tell him. And I can't have Lucy tell him. He'd take it better coming from a man. You tell him.

Eric: It's okay, Martin, you're a man. I'll help you to tell him.

Camden's House - Backyard

Eric: Hi, thanks for coming over.

Beau: So... my son's joining the Marines. There are worse things, huh?

Eric: Yeah, let's talk about that.

Beau: So there are worse things, there's more?

Martin: There's more.

Eric: No matter how close a father and son are, some conversations are just more difficult than others, and this one's especially difficult. Martin asked me if I could be here, just for support, in case he needs help.

Martin: I'm sorry.

Beau: That's okay son, there's no shame in asking for help. I'm just a little confused. I thought you did a pretty good job of breaking the news to me.

Martin: That wasn't what I wanted to tell you.

Beau: You didn't want to tell me you joining the Marines?

Eric: He didn't join the Marines.

Beau: Then why'd you tell me that?

Martin: You said it, I didn't, and then it was easier to go along with it than tell you what I wanted to tell you.

Beau: It's all right, it's all right, so tell me now. It's okay, Martin. What did you want to tell me? And by the way even though you... misled me, I have to say I ah, I'm a little relived. I don't think you're ready for the service.

Martin: I made a mistake... a big mistake.

Beau: We all make mistakes.

Martin: Not like this one. I got a girl pregnant and I'm going to be a father.

Beau: I... I don't think you're ready for that either and neither is Meredith. I asked you about you and Meredith and I thought you said that...

Martin: I didn't lie about that.

Beau: You're seeing someone other than Meredith?

Martin: I saw someone this summer... once. I had sex with her one time and now... it's not fair.

Beau: Yeah, I can only imagine that's what she's thinking, too. But life's not fair. That's a fact, life is not fair. Wow... who is this girl?

Eric: Her name is Sandy. She's a college student. She's ah, twenty-one.

Beau: So you're going to what, marry her?

Martin: No, I don't want to have anything to do with her.

Eric: At first, I think Sandy wanted Martin to marry her, but now she seems confident that she can take care of the baby on her own.

Beau: No, no, no, that's not right.

Martin: Why not? I mean, she knew what she was doing.

Beau: What she was trying to trap you, an eighteen-years-old high school senior, into marrying her? I doubt it. And you knew what you were doing, too. You know where babies come from. What were you... I was going to say what were you thinking, but that really doesn't matter. What matters is that we figure this out together and we will. It'll all be okay.

Martin: How can you say that? Don't you understand? It's not gonna be okay, it's never gonna be okay. My life is over. I mean, maybe I will join the Marines and, and to Iraq and get killed.

Beau: Thank you, sir.

Eric: Anytime...

Beau: Who else knows about this?

Eric: Ah, Simon, Rose, they're friends with Sandy, some students on campus, one of whom is Meredith's sister, and even thought Meredith doesn't know that Martin's involved, somehow her dad, George, figured it out.

Beau: And your family?

Eric: Well, of course Annie knows, and Lucy and Kevin, and Matt. I'm sorry, you should have known first.

Beau: Ruthie? What about Ruthie?

Eric: Not yet. I'm hoping that Martin will tell her.

Beau: You should, but first he should tell Meredith, don't you think?

Eric: (nods)

Eric: Yeah, probably...

Beau: That girl is so in love with him.

Eric: Meredith? Yeah...

Beau: No, I meant Ruthie. Not that Meredith's not a great girl, she is, she's very sweet. I just had the feeling that this was kind of a first love for them and at some point they'd move. I was kind of hoping that ten years from now, we'd see each other at the front of the church. Know what I mean? Anyway, back to reality. I better go find Martin. 'Night, Reverend.

Eric: Good night.

Glenoak Community Church - Church Office

Eric: I thought you were going up to see Sandy.

Lucy: Oh, yeah, I am. I just have some phone calls to return, and I made some notes on some projects I hoping that we could consider in next year's plans.

Eric: When did you do all that?

Lucy: I was up most of the night. I couldn't sleep. I never heard from Martin... anything from his dad this morning?

Eric: No, but I was very impressed with how he handled the news. He's a good father.

Lucy: Yes, he is. We're lucky there's one at least levelheaded, responsible parent involved.

Edward: Oh, good, Lucille, how are you?

Lucy: I'm fine. Where'd you get the money from?

Edward: From me. I gave it to your father. Hello...

Eric: Hello, how are you this morning?

Edward: Fine... but, I've changed my mind about the money. I want it back.

Lucy: Oh, well, that's too bad. I wired it to Sandy this morning.

Edward: My specific instructions were not to give it all to her at once.

Lucy: Yeah, well, I ignored your instructions.

Edward: She's quite spunky.

Eric: She is. But, since you're here, would you like a cup of coffee? I'd really love to talk and I'm sure Lucy would, too.

Edward: About?

Eric: How about we start with the money and where you found it, and then we move on to oh, I don't know, your thoughts on getting sober.

Edward: I already told you I found the money at the bank. I vaguely remembered putting it in a safe deposit box, and once I able to convince the lovely young banker I had a safe deposit box, I was allowed to open it, and there it was... a gift from my father.

Eric: Was your dad by any chance a functional alcoholic, too?

Edward: He was. At least for a number of years, until he stepped off a curb and got hit by a bus, leaving me, his only son, everything he had.

Eric: And that's what was in the envelope? Everything he had?

Edward: No, that's what's left of what he had. I spent the rest and then I forgot about it, then I remembered it. I need it back. I fear I may have been a bit too hasty. I was let go of my position at the Municipal gardens this morning, and I may need a little something to fall back on later today.

Lucy: Again, it's too late, the money's gone... to a worthy cause.

Eric: But you know, since you're between positions, would this possible be a good time to think about going into an alcohol rehabilitation treatment program?

Edward: Since I am between positions, I think I this might be a good time looking for another position, which I assure you, I will be able to acquire without giving up my beverage of choice.

Lucy: Look, you know, while you're looking for a job, when you have an hour in between filling out applications and interviews, you could just walk into an AA meeting.

Edward: I have walked in and walked back out several times.

Eric: Recently?

Edward: No...

Lucy: Look, you can keep hiding behind your functional alcoholism until you yourself step off a curb and get hit by a bus or you can change your life today. Today could be the first day of the rest of your life.

Edward: Thank you, Lucille, I've heard that on numerous occasions and have passed on the offer.

Eric: Well, maybe you'll want to reconsider at some point before your grandchild is born, and if and when you do, please let us know if I or Lucille can be of any help. Happy to get you into a program or go with you to your first AA meeting.

Edward: I remind you, it would not be my first.

Eric: But, it would be your first since hearing that your daughter needs your help because she's having a baby. She's pretty much all alone, and I know you know how that feels, being all alone and needing help, wanting help, just wanting to connect with family and people who love you, the real you, not just the functional alcoholic you. You probably don't even remember who that guy is. But, I imagine he's a nice guy. I'm sure he is a nice guy.

Edward: Oh no, he's a terrible dirty, rotten scoundrel. That's why I drink.

Lucy: And his daughter is a very pregnant young woman. So that's reason enough to stop drinking.

Eric: I think you do want to stop drinking. I think that's why you came in here. That's why I'm offering, we're offering to help you.

Edward: I doubt that even sober I would be fit to extend any assistance to my offspring at any time in the near future.

Eric: I think you're right. I think the journey to sobriety is difficult, and the only person you're going to be able to help is yourself. But, you can help yourself.

Edward: (nods)

Lucy: Well, I think there's at least a possibility that you got through to him. Nice work.

Eric: Thanks for the assist. You already wired the money to Sandy?

Lucy: No, I lied. He doesn't need to know I'm taking it to her. What? I learned at the feet of the master.

Eric: So tell me, why aren't we talking to the two sober parents?

Lucy: The mom and the stepfather? I called them.

Eric: And?

Lucy: And they don't think my opinion matters. They didn't think I know what I'm getting into and they don't think I know Sandy like they know Sandy. Bottom line, they don't think women should be ministers so it was a thanks, but no thanks, they'll let Sandy do this alone, and maybe it'll teach her something.

Eric: I think it might teach us all something.

High School

Kevin: Hey, Martin, wait up, I need you. Ruthie's collecting soup labels for that Campbell's Labels of Education project, and she forgot to come by this morning and get 'em. You mind giving them to her?

Martin: Can't you just give them to her when she gets home from school.

Kevin: I don't really know when she had to have them. Here... hold Savannah for me.

Martin: Look, I know what you're doing here.

Kevin: Yeah?

Martin: I know you know and I don't want a baby, okay?

Kevin: Yeah, I know, but you're going to have a baby under probably the worst of circumstances. But, the baby isn't going to know the circumstances or understand the circumstances or care about the circumstances. It's just going to be a baby, a baby that's going to need you. Like it or not. Like the mother or not. So, if you want to talk to me, Martin, come over, anytime. I'll do anything I can for you. I know the next few weeks and months aren't going to be easy. But, I care about you, and Lucy cares about you, and Savannah cares about you and so do all the Camdens.

Martin: Okay, okay... enough, okay. Meredith's coming.

Kevin: Tell her, then tell Ruthie.

Meredith: Oh hi, Kevin. Savannah, get a look at you.

Savannah: (gooing)

Meredith: She's cute, isn't she?

Kevin: I forgot to give Ruthie some soup labels. Remind Martin to give them to her, will you?

Meredith: Sure, I brought some, too.

Martin: Let's go. I'm sorry I didn't call you last night. My dad and I kind of got into it.

Meredith: I knew you were acting weird yesterday for some reason. I'm just happy to hear it wasn't me.

Martin: No, I love you.

Meredith: You love your dad, too. I'm sure everything will be fine.

Glenoak Community Church - Church Office

Phone: (rings)

Simon on Phone: Hello?

Eric on Phone: Who gave you the money?

Simon on Phone: Good morning to you, too.

Eric on Phone: You got your service turned back on.

Simon on Phone: Just on my cell phone. I think I'll leave my apartment phone off awhile until I get caught up.

Eric on Phone: Uh-huh... who gave you the money?

Simon on Phone: Dad, come on. All right, I'll tell you. She didn't tell me I couldn't tell you.

Eric on Phone: She?

Simon on Phone: Mary...

Simon on Phone: Dad? Dad? Dad, please don't be angry with...

Eric: I just need one good day with my children, one good day.
