SYNOPSES: 1974

Daily Synopses: January - June / July - December


JANUARY 1 - 10, 1974
Sam told Gil and Ada that he had resigned from Delaney Brands and that Lahoma had taken the baby and fled Somerset. Gil and Ada were pleased by Sam and Rachel's efforts to mend fences. Mary and Alice's relationship became strained because Mary disapproved of Steve and Alice reconciling. Eliot debated on whether or not to press charges against Iris and Louise for bugging his suite. Sam agreed to represent Rachel in her divorce suit against Steve. Everyone was surprised when Liz returned to Bay City without telling anyone. Tim surreptitiously went to New York to keep Mac informed about Eliot's schemes against Iris. Robert agonized between choosing Janice or Lenore. Dennis tried to cheer up Jamie, who was dismayed over his parents' impending divorce. Janice grew disillusioned by Robert because he harbored lingering feelings for Lenore and was indecisive towards making a commitment to Janice. Iris deduced that Alice could marry Eliot if Steve and Rachel's divorce isn't granted. Rachel cut Steve out of Jamie's life in retaliation to the divorce suit. Liz hoped to mend fences with people she had wronged in the past.

First appearance of Irene Dailey as Liz Matthews.
Introduction Scene: Mary answered the doorbell to find Liz waiting on the front porch.


JANUARY 11, 1974 (EP. #2399)
John told Eliot that while Iris's taping could not be used against her in a divorce, they were evidence for criminal action against her and Louise. John advised Eliot against prosecuting Iris since it would only be for the sake of revenge. Liz dropped by the hospital where Alice and Janice were going over Robert's plans for the alterations of their apartment. Introduced to Janice, Liz said she would always assumed Steve was an only child, but Janice said he was the oldest of seven. Liz said she would work on it when Alice sighed that she and Mary were not talking since they didn't see eye-to-eye about Steve. Alice declined the invitation to Pat's dinner party when she and John thought it would be a good opportunity to mend fences. John remarked that Liz was more relaxed than she used to be and could even make everyone laugh.

Liz: (To Alice about Janice) "She seems like a very nice girl."

Liz: "And Michael will probably be a lawyer, like John."

JANUARY 14, 1974 (EP. #2400)
Sam showed up at Steve's office to say he had resigned from Delaney Brands in Somerset and would be representing Rachel in her divorce from Steve. Steve insisted there was no chance of a reconciliation. Alice worried about imposing on Lenore when Steve wanted to meet her there at her house again secretly. Ada tried to snap Rachel out of her depression. Rachel reassured Ada she was getting along fine with Sam despite their problems years ago. Dennis told Jamie he'd get used to it when Jamie was feeling miserable over his parents' fighting. Lenore left the lovebirds alone when Steve and Alice met at her home. Steve said he was not unrealistic enough to hope for total custody but was going to insist on generous visiting privileges. Rachel slammed the door in the face of the process server who delivered a summons for her to appear in divorce court.

Jamie: (About his parents) "Sometimes I think if I wasn't here, they wouldn't fight at all."

JANUARY 15, 1974 (EP. #2401)
Sam said Lahoma and the baby were "away" when he ran into Robert and Lenore, who are still on the outs. Eliot bullied Louise into dragging Iris out into his presence, then leveled them both by saying the tapes of them conspiring to hire Sykes to bug Eliot's suite would be convincing enough for any jury. Iris counter-threatened by having her father refuse to publish, though keep paying for, Eliot's articles for Mac's paper. Iris phoned Tim for help, then fretted when he said Eliot was probably just using the tapes to gain a better bargaining position in the divorce. When Iris refused to give Eliot a divorce since he might marry Alice, Louise suggested they help Steve free himself from Rachel so he could marry Alice. Rachel burst into tears when Sam tried to tell her that Steve didn't love her and wouldn't come back to her even if the divorce wasn't granted.

JANUARY 16, 1974 (EP. #2402)
Lenore was uncomfortable when Liz dropped by the office, but introduced her to Robert, who knew her as Missy's aunt from when Missy lived in Somerset. Liz told Steve she was fully in his corner. Tim dissembled when John asked if the business Iris was sending him to New York on had anything to do with Eliot's case against her. While he exchanged meaningful glances with Louise, Russ flattered Iris into going to lunch with him. Steve told Janice he would rather not drop Jamie at her place for a visit since Alice lived there too, and Rachel might use it against him. Rachel slammed the phone down on Steve after telling him that when he'd walked out on her he'd walked out on Jamie too.

JANUARY 17, 1974 (EP. #2403)
Janice apologized to Alice for having misjudged her. Janice was pleased when Emma mailed her photos of their Ma. John was pleased to hear that Janice was acting as peacemaker between Mary and Alice. John realized Tim had gotten himself embroiled in Iris's schemes when Eliot told him about Iris's threat to have her father penalize him. Steve looked away when Robert and Jamie discussed what a great guy Sam was. Steve asked Robert to fill in for him during Jamie's visit to Janice's. Jamie enthused over the family photos Janice showed him of all of Steve's siblings. Janice related how her mother had died a long time ago when Janice was not much older than Jamie. Rachel threatened Steve through John, his lawyer, even saying she might move out of Bay City.

JANUARY 18, 1974 (EP. #2404)
Rachel was angry when Jamie told her he had been at Janice's apartment, and that Janice had given him the photo of her mother. Sam tried to quell Rachel's anger, but got upset himself when he learned she had warned John that Steve would regret his divorce action. Liz told Pat she thinks Mary resents her for telling Alice to fight for Steve when Alice visited her in Arizona. Tim denied to John that he knew anything of Iris's plans for Eliot, and Iris reassured Tim he would be well rewarded if John fired him for engaging in a conflict of interest. Tim agreed to find Janice's address when Rachel burst into his office and started rifling through his papers to find it. Alice and Mary made amends when Mary and Jim arrived for dinner. Stunned to see Alice when she showed up at Janice's, Rachel made a scene by hurling the photo of Janice's mother at Janice and accusing her of helping Steve take Jamie away from her.

Iris: "What good is a threat if you can't use it."

JANUARY 21, 1974 (EP. #2405)
Mary cautioned Alice about Rachel but Alice vowed to fight for Steve and believed that Rachel was only acting out of desperation. Sam told Ada that Steve was basing his suit on fraud, and that the courts would have to decide if Rachel concealed the truth or lied about not knowing what Gerald had done. Mary told Liz she had good reason not to trust Liz when Liz inquired what went on at Alice's dinner party. Rachel wanted Sam to initiate an alienation of affection suit against Alice, then told him to put the house up for sale so she could move back into town and keep a close eye on Steve.

JANUARY 22, 1974 (EP. #2406)
Tim told Iris that Mac had agreed to her plan to refuse to publish Eliot's column for the remainder of his contract. Tim was pleased when Iris wrote him a personal check in addition to the official one made out to John's firm. Russ was happy to hear that Iris planned to settle in Bay City. Because of the conflict of interest, John told Tim he's taking him off Iris's case and sending him to Washington for a month. Tim suggested to Iris that Sam take over his duties. Mary worried to Pat that John would not be able to win the divorce suit. Steve refused when Sam told him Rachel wants to sell the house.

JANUARY 23, 1974 (EP. #2407)
Steve vowed to Sam that he would not let Rachel use Jamie as a weapon against him. When Russ confided he was worried about Iris, Alice suggested he invite her over to Lenore's. Sam revealed to Robert that Lahoma took Susannah and left him several months ago when he got involved with his secretary. Robert was afraid that someone would be hurt if he tried to make a decision about his relationship with Janice and his lack of a relationship with Lenore. Alice dropped by Lenore's to ask her to invite Steve to dinner with Iris and Russ as she worried that Steve was lonely. Steve came in to drop Jamie off to see Wally, and Jamie barely remembered Alice. Steve and Alice were unaware that Jamie witnessed their kiss.

JANUARY 24, 1974 (EP. #2408)
Liz told Mary and Jim she wished Lenore would let bygones be bygones and forget the foolish things Liz did years ago. Mary thought Liz was being naive in her praise of Steve. Eliot vowed that Iris and her father would have a fight on their hands should she refuse to grant him a divorce. Steve and Alice bill and cooed over the phone. Sam tried to change Jamie's mind when he decided that he would never to get married as married couples were always miserable. Jamie was too upset to talk further when he asked Rachel who Alice was.

JANUARY 25, 1974 (EP. #2409)
Iris failed to recognize Rachel's voice when she called the Frame house to speak with Sam. Sam went to see her and agreed to represent her when she told him she had bugged her husband's suite to provide her with information to prevent any divorce action he might take. Iris said she was delighted when Lenore came to ask her to dinner with her, Steve, and Russ. Eliot told Gil he wants to press charges against Louise alone in hopes that Iris might agree to a divorce to protect her. Rachel warned Lenore not to go on letting Steve and Alice meet at her house.

JANUARY 29, 1974 (EP. #2411)
Liz told Iris about Susan being married in Boston and Bill dying in a boat accident. Liz considered traveling abroad so that her daughter-in-law, Missy could raise her grandson (Ricky) on her own. Iris was surprised that Russ told Liz that she leads an exciting life and her father is Mackenzie Cory.

Iris: "I'm not bored at all...There aren't many people I can talk to..."
Liz: "Well, please consider me one of them."
Iris: "I already do."

JANUARY 30, 1974 (EP. #2412)
Rachel discussed Steve's divorce suit against her with Sam. Louise overruled Iris so Gil could ask some routine identification questions. Iris protested when Zack had Louise fingerprinted. Gil informed Iris that the tapes are inadmissible in court, but Sykes may corroborate Louise's testimony. Sam agreed to represent Louise per Iris's urgent request. Dennis noticed Iris' agitated state at the mention of Eliot dining with Alice at Tallboys. Alice told Eliot that their dinners in New York eased loneliness and hoped life would be easier once Steve and Rachel are divorced. Eliot told Alice he woul not attempt to repair his marriage for fear Dennis would be caught in the middle. Iris lambasted Eliot for torturing her by having Louise arrested. She said that releasing the transcripts could prove damaging to Eliot's divorce suit and Steve and Alice's reconciliation. Eliot was embarrassed when Iris recalled that the conversations show his pursuit in proposing marriage and Alice's willingness to consider it.

(GIL'S OFFICE, POLICE STATION)
Gil: "Maiden name?"
Louise: "Bronson."
Gil: "Place of birth?"
Louise: "St. Louis, Missouri."
Gil: "Date?"
Louise: "Do I have to answer that?"
Gil: (LOOKING AT HER FOR A MOMENT) "We can fill that in later...."
Note: Also revealed: Louise's deceased husband was Richard Goddard and she has no children or next of kin.

Eliot: "I'm sure that somewhere underneath my hostility to Iris is the attraction that drew me to her in the first place."
Alice: "I've never heard you admit that before...."

JANUARY 31, 1974 (EP. #2413)
John was sympathetic over Eliot's concerns that Iris will hand the tapes' transcripts to the newspapers. Eliot admitted the tapes capture him pressing Alice into marrying him. John reminded Eliot that Iris would only succeed in hurting Dennis by going public with the transcripts. Louise mused that she was wrong to think Eliot had been fond of her. Iris was undaunted over Eliot's warnings that Sykes and Louise may be forced to testify against Iris.

FEBRUARY 6, 1974 (EP. #2417)
Eliot marveled at Louise's loyalty and devotion towards Iris. Louise wouldn't heed Eliot's advice that it would be foolish protecting Iris by committing perjury in court.

Louise: (to Eliot) "You see only the surface, not the lonely, vulnerable, hurt woman underneath."

Eliot: (about Iris) "You're not going to change your mind, are you?"
Louise: "No."
Eliot: "And you're not going to let me see Iris?"
Louise: "That's right."
Eliot: "I don't agree with you, Louise, but I wish I knew someone whose loyalty I could count on as much as Iris can count on yours."

FEBRUARY 7, 1974 (EP. #2418)
Gil issued a warrant for Iris' arrest after Eliot overcame reservations about pressing charges.

FEBRUARY 8, 1974 (EP. #2419)
Gil and Zack arrived to arrest Iris. Louise doted on Iris after she raged against Eliot for hating her like everyone else has in her life. Eliot ripped up the arrest warrant, then called Russ when they learned Iris was having a breakdown while holding scissors. Iris grew delirious while referring to Dennis as her baby who needs a last name and Louise as the mother who abandoned her.

Iris: (about Dennis) "He'll grow up to hate me, just as everyone else does...All the nurses who came and went, those awful teachers in Switzerland, Daddy's lady friends...everyone stared at me because I wasn't as pretty as Mama..."
Eliot: (STARING AT HER) "No one hates you, Iris."
Iris: "I know you don't...but then we hardly know each other, do we? Come and look at my baby...His name is Dennis...Dennis...But I've got to find a last name for him, now..." (ELIOT PUTS HIS HAND ON HERS. SHE SNATCHES HERS AWAY) "How dare you touch me! You're only nice to me because I'm rich..." (ELIOT RISES AND TURNS AWAY. LOUISE GOES TO IRIS)
Louise: "Iris, it's time for your nap."
Iris: "Can I take my baby with me?"
Louise: "Of course you can. We'll put him in the bed with you...."
Iris: "Good...Oh, Mama, why did you go away when I was born?"
Louise: "I'll never go away again..." (SHE PUTS HER ARMS AROUND HER AND LIFTS HER TO HER FEET. ELIOT APPROACHES) "Let me, please."
(IRIS BEGINS TO SING AGAIN, AS LOUISE HELPS HER OUT) Iris: "Morgen fruh, wenn Gott will Wirst du wieder gewecht...." (IRIS AND LOUISE ARE GONE, THE DOOR CLOSED BEHIND THEM. ELIOT SINKS INTO A CHAIR, STARING INTO SPACE.)

FEBRUARY 11, 1974 (EP. #2420)
Russ helped Gil calm Iris enough to get her admitted to the hospital because of having an emotional breakdown.

FEBRUARY 12, 1974 (EP. #2421)
Eliot admitted to Alice and Louise that he was wrong to press charges against Iris. Alice assured him it's best that Iris is getting psychological help. Eliot fretted over telling Dennis about his mother's breakdown. Dr. Kurt Landis performed neurological tests. Louise confessed that she was respecting Iris' wishes not to reveal her mental instability. Alice enthused over having dinner plans with Steve. Louise accused Eliot of arousing Iris' jealousy by hiring Alice and attempting to gain his freedom through heartless tactics.

(...ELIOT STANDS, DEJECTED, WATCHING HIM [KURT] GO AND THEN SEES LOUISE IN THE WAITING ROOM. HE APPROACHES HER QUIETLY. SHE TURNS AND STARTS AWAY. HE TAKES HER ARM) Eliot: "Louise, please let me explain."
Louise: "I understand the situation only too well."
Eliot: "You think I wanted to do this to Iris?"
Louise: "It doesn't matter what I think."
Eliot: "It does to me. If you'd told me how ill she was, I would never have brought charges against her."
Louise: "She didn't want anyone to know, but I tried to tell you anyway."
Eliot: "I thought you were just protecting Iris."
Louise: "You mean you thought I was lying."
Eliot: "Louise, please, can't we forget what's happened and try to make better from now on?"
Louise: "I will do whatever Mrs. Carrington wants."
Eliot: "I'm not asking you to do anything."
Louise: "You can't have your freedom at her expense."
Eliot: "I agree with you."
Louise: "Whatever Mrs. Carrington has done during these years of your separation, she has always loved you, and now, she's lying in there alone, because of you."
(SHE TURNS AND WALKS AWAY FROM HIM. ELIOT SINKS DOWN ON A CHAIR).

FEBRUARY 20, 1974 (EP. #2427)
Kurt decided to act as a psychiatric consultant when he realized his limitations in treating Iris since she was an unusual case. Eliot explained Alice was Dennis' nurse in New York and credited Alice for Dennis being treated for his heart ailment in Bay City. Kurt felt that Iris finds difficulty in telling the truth because it frightens her. Kurt decided to postpone psychiatric treatment and suggested that only Louise and Dennis be permitted for visits. Eliot was pleased that Iris does not object to Alice being her nurse.

FEBRUARY 27, 1974 (EP. #2432)
Eliot was upset to learn that Mac met Tim in New York to discuss his contract.

Alice thought having Iris visit the house that Robert is building for her would remedy Iris' depressed mood.

Iris: "Thank you, Eliot."
Eliot: "I'll see you again before I go."
Iris: "Are you leaving that soon?"

Wedding of Steve and Alice. Special hour-long broadcast for show's anniversary (May 4th fell on a Saturday).

Lenore and Janice prepared Alice for her wedding. Robert and Steve talked about John's pitiful condition and the poor state of his law practice. Pat and John fought over his refusal to attend Steve and Alice's wedding. Rachel viciously reprimanded Steve over his vindictive treatment and tactics in getting a divorce. Mary consoled a despondent Pat and made excuses to explain John's absence. Sam scolded John for resorting to alcohol as a coping device. Rachel went to see John and recruit him against Steve by fueling his anger and bitterness towards him. Tim proposed marriage to Janice. John arrived at the reception drunk where he denounced Steve over using fortune to gain friendships, influence and bribe affluent people, and provide for Alice. Rachel sadly admitted to Ada that she is devastated without Steve. John came out of his drunken stupor after Alice shunned him from the Matthews family. Tim escorted John out while Pat quietly cried in embarrassment over John making a fool of himself. Iris immediately grabbed Kurt's arm to stop him from trying to comfort Pat.

(FRAME TERRACE) Andrews: "Alice, do you take Steve as your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, in sickness and in health, as long as you both shall live?"
Alice: "I do."
Andrews: "And, Steven, do you take Alice as your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, in sickness and in health, as long as you both shall live?"
Steve: "I do."
Andrews: "For as much as Steve and Alice have promised to be faithful and true to each other before God and this company, I hereby pronounce them man and wife. Whom God hath joined together, let no man put asunder." (HE SMILES AT STEVE) "Now, you may kiss the bride, Mr. Frame."
(ALICE AND STEVE TURN TO FACE EACH OTHER, SMILING. HE KISSES HER GENTLY ON THE LIPS. JIM AND ROBERT STEP FORWARD TO KISS ALICE AND SHAKE HANDS WITH STEVE, AS THE SPECTATORS RISE FROM THEIR CHAIRS AND CROWD AROUND THEM, OFFERING CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD WISHES.

IRIS AND KURT PASS PAT, KURT TURNS TO LOOK AT HER, BUT IRIS HAS HIS ARM AND TAKES HIM FORWARD WITH HER TO CONGRATULATE THE NEWLYWEDS)

Robert: (toasting) "To Steve and Alice, and to many, many years of happiness."
John: (OFF CAMERA) "To the bridegroom!" (EVERYONE TURNS AS JOHN STUMBLES DRUNKENLY ONTO THE TERRACE)
Pat: (GOING TOWARDS HIM) "John!"
John: "May the bridegroom be happy, no matter who he makes miserable! I'm drunk. That's right. Otherwise I wouldn't be here to tell you in front of all your friends that you're a lying hypocrite--"
Pat: "John, please!"
John: "Take a good look at your new brother-in-law. The money man! Who buys friendships and lawyers, and witnesses--"
Steve: "You've said enough!"

Steve: "Come on, darling. Let's go in the house."
John: "That's the way...run away from the truth...you can buy your way out of some things, but you can't buy self-respect...(TO ALICE) "I only hope you don't regret this day as much as I do!"
Alice: "The only thing I regret is that you're part of my family--"
John: "Alice...don't say that...I didn't mean.." (HE STOPS, AND LOOKS DOWN UNABLE TO CONTINUE. TIM PUSHES HIS WAY THROUGH THE OTHERS TO HIM, AND TAKES HIM BY HIS SHOULDERS)
Tim: "Okay, John, you've had your say...now let's get out of here." (JOHN ALLOWS HIMSELF TO BE LED OUT. PAT STARES AFTER HIM, CRYING SOFTLY. KURT LEAVES IRIS'S SIDE AND GOES TO HER).

JUNE 14, 1974 (EP. #2509)
Sam tracked John down in his hotel room to try to whip him back into shape, but John insisted he has put everything in Bay City behind him, including his wife, his kids, and his business. John was bitter that Pat was seeing Kurt Landis. Pat did not want to listen when Iris said her father had uncovered some unpleasant facts about Kurt. Sam phoned her to say he had convinced John to fly back home. Rachel came to the precinct to demand Gil arrest Tim for having Janice take Jamie to visit Steve in the prison in Berryville. A disgruntled Gerald tried to turn the other prisoners against Steve. Punches flew when Gerald taunted Steve about all the women who came to visit him.

Steve: (To Gerald) "You were a front for a second-rate gambling joint. Lying and cheating everyone, including your own daughter."

Note: All prison scenes were shot on 16mm film.

JUNE 17, 1974 (EP. #2510)
The other prisoners implicated Steve when Gerald injured himself falling off the loading truck when Steve jumped him. Ada told Gil not to worry that she was having the baby by Caesarean since Rachel was born the same way. Gil chased Rachel out of the room when she made an emotional Ada cry by insisting that Gil should arrest Tim. Pat accused Russ of being jealous that Iris was still interested in Kurt. Steve maintained that Gerald started the fight when the warden described the seriousness of Gerald's injuries. Steve was not allowed to speak to his lawyer when the warden decided to transfer him to a maximum-security prison because of his unpopularity with the other prisoners. John arrived home, said a quick hello and goodbye to Liz, then watched numbly as Pat and Kurt entered and began fixing drinks for themselves.

JUNE 18, 1974 (#2511)
Pat said she feels like John's shadow with no life of her own, and said she turned to Kurt for friendship when John began to drink and not come home. Tim told Robert and Lenore about Steve's transfer. Vic admonished Tim for trying to make Steve give him power of attorney over Steve's business. Alice was writing a letter to Steve when Robert and Lenore broke the news that Steve's new arrangements disallowed visitors. Robert and Lenore left when Jim came over to comfort Alice. After Jim left, she locked the door, drew the drapes, put out the lights, and sank into the sofa with a sob.

JUNE 19, 1974 (EP. #2512)
Mary insisted on phoning Alice when Jim told her about Steve. Mary went to Russ when she could not reach Alice, but he could not get in touch with her either. Mary said Alice would not forgive her for disapproving of Steve until Mary condoned what Steve did, but she doubted she could ever do that in light of what it has done to John. Sam advised Vic it would just make John feel guilty if they told him about Steve, and agreed with Vic that Tim should not be trying to give himself power of attorney. Mac guessed rightly that Russ was responsible for Iris's good mood. Mac thanked Liz for taking Iris in when she got out of the hospital.

Note: Last appearance of Robert Emhardt as Mac Cory. Mac is referred to as "Cory" in the script. Many of the older men were referred to by their last name, including Dru, and Walter Curtin in his first years.

JUNE 20, 1974 (EP. #2513)
Gil reamed Tim out for having gone behind Rachel's back when he arranged for Jamie to see Steve so Steve could explain to him why he was in prison. Vic thanked Lenore for devoting so much extra time to the firm. Jamie asked Rachel to find a way for him to visit Steve since Steve did not want Rachel bringing him over. Vic dropped by and introduced himself to Rachel, then gave her some photos Steve had wanted Jamie to have. Rachel removed a photo of a boy who resembled Jamie before giving Jamie the photos. Pat realized she'd been foolish when Iris, armed with Russ at her side, showed Pat a suicide note that was written by a girl who had been involved with Kurt.

JUNE 21, 1974 (EP. #2514)
Robert and Lenore asked Janice to check up on Alice, who did not answer the phone when Lenore called. Linda told Russ she has been covering for Alice at the hospital since last week. Kurt accused Pat of leading him on when she told him she did not want to see him anymore. The warden informed Rachel that Gerald was in a coma, and allowed her to visit him at the hospital but refused to let her see Steve. Russ broke in through the window when he and Lenore got no answer knocking on Alice's door. Alice came out from behind the closet door and begged them to leave her alone.

Notes: Last appearance of Donald Madden as Dr. Kurt Landis.

JUNE 24, 1974 (EP. #2515)
Russ and Lenore tried their best to bring Alice out of her despair. Gerald was bitter and disconsolate when Rachel came to visit him, and said he hoped they threw the book at Steve. Rachel got a guard to tell her that Steve was in State Prison. Lenore called Mary to come over right away to see Alice. Pat was relieved when she received a less than gracious goodbye note from Kurt. Alice let Russ comfort her, but rushed upstairs when Mary came over.

Rachel: [SHE LEANS OVER GERALD, HESITATES, AND THEN KISSES HIM ON THE CHEEK] "Get well soon, Dad..."
Gerald: "You really care?"
Rachel: "You're my father."
Gerald: "I thought you visited me just so you could see Steve, but I guess I was wrong... Thanks for coming, Rachel..."
Rachel: "Goodbye, Dad."

Tim did not like it when Janice told him Lenore excluded him from a company meeting. Tim thought it was a good idea when Russ asked Janice to move in with Alice, as he would know who was getting to her about Steve's business. Gil was helping Ada get ready for her stay in hospital when Rachel came by to complain that Gil had not told her about Steve's transfer. Iris kissed Russ affectionately when he told her how worried he was about his sister. Linda told Ada that Zack had made her promise to take good care of the boss's wife. Gil gave Tim a hug when Ada refused to have the baby until they started acting like father and son again.

Ada: "Now shut up and deal me another hand, or I won't play."
Gil: "No, no, you're stuck with that one."
Ada: "But you've seen it!"
Gil: "I have not." [SHE PICKS IT UP AND SHOWS IT TO HIM]
Ada: "Now, you have." [GIL GRINS AT HER AND STARTS SHUFFLING THE PACK AGAIN]"

Alice let Janice and Tim in only when they said they had news about Steve. Alice insisted Tim call the prison right that moment for information on Steve. He managed to get the warden to allow her in by saying she had to discuss business matters with Steve. Liz was a bit tactless to say to Mary that Alice might agree to see her because Alice knows she likes Steve, unlike Mary. Robert tried to convince Lenore not to spend so much time at work. Liz told Lenore she was worried when she could not find Alice, but Lenore phoned Janice and learned Tim had taken her to see Steve. Tim wanted Steve to sign power of attorney over to him, but Steve liked Alice's idea better when Alice said Jim suggested she be the one given power of attorney. Steve and Alice had an emotional goodbye at the end of their visit.

Alice told Liz she understood her feelings while Mary did not. Mary came to the hospital to bring flowers to Ada, who told her Alice would get over her resentment in time. Russ got a call from Liz while in Ada's room and Mary was sure they were keeping things from her. Tim told John Steve wants nothing to do with him and said that if he was losing clients, it was because they knew he was more interested in his principles than in his clients. Liz told Russ she was moving in with Alice and they worried about Mary's reaction. Alice ran out of the house when Liz's back was turned.
