Sam: I just solved the mystery.
Susan: What did I forget?
Sam: You have some guests in the reception room.

Michelle: But I'm thirsty.
Harry: OK. You go out and get a drink of water at the fountain.
Susan: The fountain is over there, Michelle. Near the Exit sign.
Michelle: Thank you.
Harry: Michelle is a little shy.
Susan: I used to be that way when I was her age. Harry, if Michelle doesn't want to go, we don't have to.
Harry: She'll be fine. Remember, I haven't dated anyone else since her mother died. This is a little difficult for her. Are you ready to go?
Susan: Yes. But could you wait one minute? I have a call to make. Would you excuse me?
Susan: Sam, get Mr. Levine a Toytown Stores on the telephone for me, please.
Sam: Right. Hello. Susan Stewart calling Mr. Levine, Susan Stewart. I find myself in an barrassing situation. I made another lunch date for today and forgot to enter it in my appointment book.

thank you, Mr.Levine.
Waiter: Welcome to the South Street Restaurant, folks. What'll it be?
Harry: What do you recommend?

Harry: Susan, would you like the crab salad?
Susan: I'd love the crab salad.
Harry: Michelle, would you like to try the crab salad, too?
Michelle: OK, Daddy.
Harry: We'll have three crab salads and a pitcher of lemonade.
Waiter: Help yourself to celery and carrots and other vegetables.
Harry: We used to catch crabs.
Susan: Where was that?
Harry: We had a summer house on Fire island. Do you remember, Michelle?
Michelle: Sure. You and Mommy used to take me on the ferryboat.
Harry: Sometimes, at night, we would go down to the beach and catch crabs, remember?
Michelle: With a piece of meat on a string!
Harry: Right. Well, I think I'm going to go get us all some vegetables.
Waiter: There you go.
Susan: Thank you.
Waiter: And some ice-cold lemonade.
Susan: Thank you.
Waiter: Enjoy it.
Susan: Michelle, can I help you with the lemonade?
Michelle: No, thank you, I'll wait for my father.
Susan: Michelle, can we have a talk?
Michelle: Sure.
Susan: I know you miss your mother.
Michelle: You do? Susan: Yes. And I'm not trying to take her place.
Michelle: Then why are you and Daddy spending so much time together?
Susan: Because we like each other. And right now, he needs a friend.
Michelle: I'm his friend.
Susan: I know you are.
Michelle: Sometimes he's very sad.
Susan: And so are you, I think.
Michelle: Sometimes.
Susan: I'd like to be your friend, too. Will you let me be your friend, Michelle?
Harry: So, what were you two talking about?
Michelle: Just girl talk, daddy. It's too hard to explain.
Harry: You're probably right. Well, let's get started.


Act 3.

Susan: Oh, it's a quarter to four, and I have a production meeting at four.
Harry: I planned to take you for a ride in Central Park in a horse and carriage.
Susan: Harry, I'd love to , but I have work to do.
Harry: OK. We'll walk back to your office with you. It's so nice out. I decided to forget about my accounting problems and just enjoy this beautiful spring day. Take the time, Susan.
Susan: I know I should, but... well, there are too many things to do.
Harry; I understand. I'll go for a ride with Michelle.
Susan: Right. Well, I had a really nice time.
Harry: So did I.
Michelle: So did I. I'm sorry you can't come with us, Susan.

Susan: Sam, this is Susan.

Susan: Fine.
Sam: You're late. The production department's waiting in the conference room.
Susan: I know. Ask Paul Smith to fill in for me. He knows everything about the production schedule, and he can answer any questions.

Episode 11 A Place of Our Own

Act 1.

Marilyn: Ellen, I'd like your opinion
Ellen: About what?
Marilyn: Well, Richard and I feel that with a baby coming we need to have our own place to live.
Ellen: Oh.
Marilyn: Well, what do you think about Richard and me looking for a small house or an apartmnt at this point in our lives?
Ellen: We love having you here, and there is room, and...and when the baby comes, the baby can stay in your room for a while.
Marilyn: Richard feels we need to find a small house.
Ellen: I remember when I was pregnant with Richard. Philip and I were living with Grandma and Grandpa. Philip was a young doctor, and he kept talking about having a house of our own. It's natural.
Marilyn: What did you do ?
Ellen: We looked at a lot of houses.
Marilyn: Did you find one?
Ellen: Oh, not at first. We couldn't afford it. Grandpa wanted to led us the money to buy one, but Philip is too independent. He didn't want to borrow any money.
Marilyn: Sounds like Richard.
Ellen: They're all alike. Richard is a real Stewart. He's independent, and sometimes just stubbom.
Marilyn: When did you buy a house?
Ellen: After Richard was born. I was teaching music, and Philip was opening his first medical office.
Marilyn: Where was the house?
Ellen: Right here in Riverdate. Of course, it was a small house, but just right for us.
Marilyn: It's funny. History repeats itself. Now Richard and I are having a baby, and we probably won't be able to afford a house right away, either.
Ellen: Why don't you look at some houses, Marilyn?
Marilyn: Good idea.
Ellen: Look in the real-estate section of Sunday's Times. You'll learn a lot.
Marilyn: Maybe we should speak to a real-estate agent about a house.
Ellen: And a bank about a mortgage.
Marilyn: I'll talk to Richard about it. I think it's a good idea, Ellen. We can learn a lot by asking.
Ellen: And if I can be of any help, let me know. As a matter of fact, my friend Virginia Martinelli is a real-estate agent.
Marilyn: Good.
Ellen: You won't believe this, but she sold us our first house and this one.
Marilyn: Well, I'll tell Richard, and we'll go to see her. Do you think the skirt length is right, Ellen? Do you think it's too long?
Ellen: I think the skirt is just right. Are you planning to attach a train to it?
Marilyn: No. No train. Just the dress. But I am going to make a headpiece of lace.
Ellen: That dress is gorgeous.
Marilyn: Thanks, Ellen. And thanks for the advice about the house. I'll talk to Richard about it the minute the comes home.
Ellen: And remember, we love having you here. There's no need to rush.


Act 2.

Virginia: I remember yuor parents' first house very well. It was on Spring Avenue, near the park.
Richard: I grew up in that house.
Virginia: Yes, and you were such a cute baby.
Marilyn : I've seen pictures of him. He had blond hair.
Virginia: I've been friendly with the Stewart family for a long time, so It's my pleasure to help you find a house now.
Richard: Well, we're not sure we can afford one.
Marilyn: But we'd like to find ut about the possibilities.
Virginia: That's a good idea. I love your house on Linden Street. I sold your father that house seventeen years ago.
Marilyn: Really?
Richard: Yes, Mom was pregnant with Robbie then, and they needed the extra room.
Virginia: I hear you're expecting a baby, Mrs.Stewart.
Marilyn: Mmm-hmm. So we will be needing more room.
Virginia: Oh, so you don't need something immediately?
Richard: No. But in five or six months...
Marilyn: And time passes so quickly.
Virginia: Yes, it does. Well, when you called, you gave me enough information about your salaries and your savings. So I have a good idea about your financial situation. Let me show your some pictures of houses.
Marilyn: With two bedrooms?
Virginia: Yes, I think I can show you some. Of course, they won't be in Riverdale. The cost of housing's too high for you here.
Richard: I haven't thought about living anywhere else. We've always lived in this area.
Marilyn: Where should we look for a house, Mrs.Martinelli?
Virginia: Well, we have an office in Mount Kisco. It's a lovely area, and it's only about an hour's rive from here. Here. I have a book with photos of some homes in that area. Now, let's see. Here. This is a lovely two-bedroom house in your price range.
Marilyn: It's pretty, but I prefer a two-story home.
Richard: I do, too. I don't care for a ranch type.
Virginia: OK. Oh, this is a wonderful house. I know it well. I sold it to the present owners.
Richard: It looks wonderful.
Virginia: This is a two-bedroom, two-bath house. It has a full basement, and it is on a half- acre lot. You can probably afford this one.
Marilyn: I like this house.
Richard: So do I.
Virginia: And the price is right. Would you like to go see it?
Richard: Yes. We're planning to talk to someone at the bank next week. Perhaps we could see the house this weekend.
Virginia: If some one doesn't buy it before then. But let's keep looking. Just to get an idea of some other possibilities.
Richard: This is very helpful, Mrs. Martinelli.
Virginia: Here. This is a wonderful example of Spanish-style architecture.
Richard: Oh, I love the roof tiles on a Spanish-style house.
Marilyn: It looks like the houses in Hollywood.
Virginia: It's interesting. A house like this in Riverdale costs double the price. Oh my! Here's a real buy. It's a bargain. This house just came on the market.
Marilyn: It's quite lovely. Is it a two-bedroom house?
Virginia: No. It has three bedrooms and three baths. I know the house. It has a brand new kitchen. And a living room with a twelve-foot ceiling. And there's a two-car garage.
Richard: Then why don't we go look at this house, too?
Virginia: It's a good investment.
Richard: Thank you, Mrs. Martinelli.
Marilyn: Thanks so much.
Virginia: My pleasure. Give my best to your parents.
Virginia: Your father's a wonderful doctor, Richard. He took care of my daughter when she was a child. He's the best pediatrician in Westchester.
Richard: Thanks, Mrs. Martinelli, I'll give them your regards.
Marilyn: We really appreciate your advice.
Virginia: I do think you should go see the houses and talk to the bank. Here. Let me give you some information sheets abo the houses. They're both very good buys.
Richard: Well, thanks so much for your help and your time, Mrs. Martinelli. We've got a lot to talk about.
Marilyn: Mmm-hmm. Thanks.


Act 3.

Mr.Riley: How do you do?
Richard: Hello.
Mr.Riley: I'm Ralph Riley.
Richard: I'm Richard Stewart, and this is my wife, Marilyn.
Mr.Riley: Pleased to meet you.
Marilyn: Likewise, Mr.Riley.
MR.Riley: Please, sit down. What can I do for you?
Richard: We'd like to discuss a mortgage.
Marilyn: For a house.
Mr.Riley: Fine. Are you buying a house or are you reinancing your present home?
Richard: We're planning to buy a house.
Marilyn: And we'd like to find out about a mortgage.
Richard: We are customers of the bank. As a matter of fact, my whole Family banks here.
Mr.Riley: I have some questions to ask. Do you own your house or do you rent?
Richard: Neither. We live with my parents, Dr. and Mrs. Philip Stewart.
Mr.Riley: And how old are you?
Marilyn: I'm twenty-nine.
Richard: I'm thirty.
Mr.RIley: And, Mr. Stewat, what is your occupation?
RIchard: I'm a freelance photographer.
Mr.Riley: And, Mrs. Stewart, are you working?
Marilyn: Yes. I'm a designer, and I work in a boutique.
Mr.Riley: Did you bring any savings or salary information? Last year's tax forms?
Richard: Yes. Here they are.
Mr. Riley: OK. What...what kind of house did you have in mind?
Richard: We're talking about buying a two-bedroom house in Mount Kisco. Here are the financial details on the house.
Mr.Riley: Thank you. Are you prepared to make a ten-percent down payment?
Richard: Yes, we are.
Mr.Riley: Payments over thirty years?
Richard: Yes.
Marilyn: Do you think we can get a loan?
Mr.Riley: Well, it depends. Do you own any other property? Any stocks or bonds?
Richard: No.
Mr.Riley: I see. Then you don't have any collateral. Perhaps you could get a guarantor- someone to sign for the loan for you.
Richard: Why is that necessary?
Mr.Riley: Since you don't have enough income, and you don't already own any property, the bank needs to be sure you can pay the mortgage every month. A guarantor is responsible for the loan if you can't make the payments.
Richard: I see. Well, the idea of buying a house is exciting.
Marilyn: Thank you, Mr.Riley. We'll read this over carefully.
Mr.Riley: Thank you.
Richard: Good-bye. Thanks.
Mr.Riley: Godd-bye. And hope to see you soon.
Richard: I hope so, too.
Mr.Riley: Take care.
Marilyn: Good-bye.
Richard: It all sounded so easy until they mentioned needing collateral or a guarantor.
Marilyn: We have no collateral.
Richard: And I don't think it's a good idea to ask Dad to sign as a guarantor. I don't feel right about it.
Marilyn: I understand your feelings about it, Richard.
Ellen: Now, tell me, what's the problem?
Marilyn: We can get a loan from the bank if we can put up some collateral.
Richard: And we don't own anything to use as collateral.
Marilyn: Or someone can sign with us as a guarantor.
Ellen: Why don't you speak to Dad?
Richard: No. If we buy a house, I want to be able to handle it alone.
Ellen: Everybody needs help sometimes, Richard.
Marilyn: I understand Richard's feelings about it, Ellen.
Richard: In two or three months, I'll have an advance on my book and be able to put more money down.
Marilyn: What about the house in Mount Kisco? Somebody else'll buy it by then.
Richard: Then there'll be other houses, Marilyn.
Ellen: Richard has a point. You're just beginning to look.
Marilyn: We're in no great rush. It's true.
Richard: This has been a great learning experience for us, Marilyn. Talking to the real-estate agent. Looking at the houses. Talking to the loan officer at the bank.
Marilyn: It has been a learning experience. That's true.
Ellen: I think you're doing the right thing. Taking your time. Looking around. Especially with a purchase of this kind. You're talking about a lot of money.
Marilyn: We'll call Mrs. Martinelli and tell her to keep looking for us.
Richard: And I'll call Mr.Riley at the bank and tell him we'll see him in a couple of months.
Ellen: And if you ever need Dad or me to help you...
Marilyn: We know.
Ellen: You know we'll be there for you.
Richard: It's a Stewart tradition. We're a family.

Episode 12 You're Tops

Act 1.

Grandpa: Is that you, Susan?
Susan: It's me, Grandpa.
Grandpa: Am I glad to see you!
Susan: And am I glad to see you! I am also glad to be here.
Grandpa: How are things?
Susan: I have been talking to a group of salesmen since ten this morning, and I'm real exhausted.
Grandpa: Well, you look good. What's Harry doing tonight?
Susan: He and Michelle are visiting relatives in New Jersey today.
Grandpa: The rest of our family went to the movies. So it's just you and me, Susan.
Susan: It's nice to be alone with you, Grandpa. We don't get to see enough of each other.
Grandpa: Oh, I feel the same way, Susan. I miss seeing you. But to tell the truth, next time I'd like to go into the city and meet you there, instead of you coming here.
Susan: You don't need to do that, Grandpa.
Grandpa: Yeah, I do. I need to get out more. Well, I mean there's a lot to do around the house, and I love being here with the family, you know, but I'm restless. Since I retired, I've got extra time on my hands.
Susan: I understand, Grandpa.
Grandpa: I think you do. Frankly, I'd like to use my brain a little more.
Susan: Grandpa, you have so much energy and so many years of experience. There are probably a lot of places for you to work. Particularly in the construction field.
Grandpa: But at my age, I'm not looking for a full-time job. I'm retired. But I'm bored.
Susan: Well, there must be something. Maybe I can help.
Grandpa: Let's go into the kitchen, and maybe can help me set the table.
Susan: Sounds good to me. What are we having?
Grandpa: I prepared lamb chops, mashed potatoes, and a tossed green salad to begin with.
Susan: Grandpa, you are a terrific guy!
Susan: You're still thinking about something to do, aren't you? A job of some kind.
Grandpa: That's right. I've been thinking about it for weeks now .There must be some way to put my mind to good use.
Susan: We'll find a solution. A positive solution to your finding a way to use that wonderful mind of yours.


Act 2.

Susan: Sam, would you come in ,please?
Sam: You sound like something's brothering you, Susan. The sketches for the cover of the new doll book?
Susan: That's not it. Please sit down.
Sam: Sure.
Susan: I need your advice on a personal matter, but it's not about me.
Sam: You need my advice on a personal matter, and it's not about. OK.
Susan: It's about my grandfather.
Sam: What's the problem?
Susan: It won't sound like a big deal, but it is. I had dinner with him Saturday, and he's very unhappy about not working.
Sam: I thought he was retired and pleased to be living with the family.
Susan: He is, but there's so much energy and talent in the man ,and he doesn't get to use it.
Sam: But what can I do? What kind of advice are you looking for?
Susan: Simply this. John Marchetta runs this company.
Sam: He founded this company.
Susan: Right. John Marchetta Gave me my start here six years ago, when I first graduated from college. He gave me the chance to use my talents and made me feel more confident.
Sam: Right. Maybe he can do the same thing for your grandfather.
Susan: Or at least give him some advice.
Sam: Right. Then I've solved your problem.
Susan: I can always depend on you, Sam.
Sam: I'm glad to help. Shall I call Mr. Marchetta for you?
Susan: No, no. I'll do that. Thanks.
Sam: Now, how's the Stewart family?
Susan: Fine, thank you, Mr. Marchetta. Except for my grandfather.
Sam: What's wrong, Susan? What's wrong with him?
Susan: He needs to work. In fact, that is the reason why I'm here to see you. I know you're building a new factory, and I thought...may be...my grandfather is so experienced in the construction trade, he could be so valuable.
Sam: Tell him to come and see me at ten 0'clock tomorrow morning. I have an idea that may solve the problem for him and help a lot of other people.
Susan: Really, Mr.Marchetta? Can I tell him that?
Marchetta: Sure can. Ten 0'clock in the morning. Here.
Susan: Oh, thank you!


Act 3.

Grandpa: Hi. I'm Malcolm Stewart.
Marchetta: John Marchetta. Sit down, sit down.
Grandpa: Susan has told me a great deal about you.She says you're quite a man.
Marchetta: She says a lot of wonderful things about you too, Mr. Stewart.
Grandpa: That's always nice to hear, Mr.Marchetta.
Marchetta: Call me John. May I call you Malcolm?
Marchetta; Let's talk business.
Grandpa: That's music to my ears.
Marchetta: I understand you used to be in the construction business.
Grandpa: Yup. Forty-three years. Here's a brief description of forty three years of on-the-job training.
Marchetta: That is some history! You're a valuable asset, Malcolm. Very valuable.
Grandpa: Thank you. Yup. Forty-three years. Half that time in my own construction company. Big jobs-factories, shopping malls. That kind of thing.
Marchetta: Then you retired.
Grandpa: Yes. After my wife died, and I felt I should spend more time with my children and grandchildren. I live in Florida, and they lived in New York.
Marchetta: I understand. My daughter Cami lives in NewYork. I like being near her.
Grandpa: When I came here, I planned to take a few months off. Relax with the family and then look for some work. Put my experience on the line...but, unfortunately, there isn't any work for a retired person my age.
Marchetta: Sometimes there is, and sometimes there isn't. Well, I'm evolved with an organization, and we're trying to resolve that problem.
Grandpa: What's that?
Marchetta: TOPS. T-O-P-S- means Talented Older People's Society.
Grandpa: I'd like to be a member. How much are the dues?
Marchetta: There are no dues...The organization serves major men and women like you. Experienced, talented, retired. But our members want to go out there and use their talents. They want to work.
Grandpa: That fantastic, John!
Marchetta: I've got and idea for you, Malcolm. Just fill out this form for me. It'll only take a few minutes. Sit right here, and do it while I talk to my secretary. When I get back, we'll talk about my new factory. My company is a member of TOPS. So I try hard to find opportunities for people like it. Well, I can use your brainpower on the job right now. Have you got time this morning to go over to the construction site with me? I'd like to have you meet my foreman-get some background on the job.
Grandpa: I've got plenty of time.
Marchetta: I'll be right back. We'll go over to the job site together.
Danny: Malcolm, you worked on the Spaceport project?
Grandpa: My company was the contractor. I built the theater there with my own two hands, practically.
Danny: I understand.
Marchrtta: Well, I'm glad to see you two guys getting along so well because Danny, Malcolm is on the TOPS team. He's going to be working with you for a while. His experience will be valuable to both of us.
Danny: Welcome aboard, Malcolm!
Marchetta: I'm going back to my office. Give me a call later, Malcolm. I'll tell you the time and date of the next TOPS meeting. I'd like you to meet the group.
Grandpa: I will, John. And again-thanks.
Marchetta: No...thank you. And thank Susan.
Grandpa: He's quite a man.
Danny: A real inspiration for me.
Grandpa: OK, Danny. I know you didn't expect to have me around, but I think I can be of some help to you.
Danny: Let me tell you something, Malcolm. With your background and experience, I can learn something...and I do need some advice on a difficult problem. Let me show you this.
Grandpa: I don't want to give you a final opinion without studying these building plans more carefully. But a simple solution might be to move the air-conditioning units instead of redesigning the entire system. It might be simpler and less expensive.
Danny: You just earned your weight in gold, Malcolm. Welcome aboard!
Grandpa: It all happened so quickly! I can't believe it!
Susan: I'm glad Mr. Marchetta was so helpful.
Grandpa: He was more than helpful. He actually took me to meet his foreman.
Susan: I'm thrilled for you, Grandpa.
Grandpa: I don't know how to thank you, Susan. You're a wonderful granddaughter.
Susan: It's good to see you so happy.
Grandpa: I'll be at the construction site tomorrow. What are you doing tomorrow night?
Susan: I'm not doing anything. Why?
Grandpa: How about a date with your grandfather? I owe you a good steak dinner.
Susan: I'll accept. Tomorrow night. You and me. Dinner. What time?
Grandpa: I'll pick you up here at seven. Is that OK?
Susan: I can't wait! And you can tell me all about your first full day back on the job.
Grandpa: It's a deal!

Susan: Mother:Marily.Father:Richard. And lots of pages for Richard's photos of Max.
Grandpa: Speaking of mother and of father-and speaking of Max hear the car. They're here!
Ellen: Oh! Oh, quickly! Go, go, go!
Ellen: Let's see. Oh, welcome home. Oh, let her in. Wait with your pictures for a second. Come on, darlings. Sweetheart... Sit down right here.
Susan: Oh, he's so cute! Oh, Marilyn!
Robbie: Max looks just like Grandpa.
Grandpa: A real Stewart.
Marilyn: I'm so happy to be home with my family-and with Max.


Act 2.

Susan: It's almost ten 0'clock. I've got to go. Tomorrow is Monday, and work begins at eight in the morning for me. Oh, I'm so happy that Max is home. He's the sweetest little thing.
Ellen: I'll drive you to Grand Grandpa, Robbie, and I can finish wrapping all these gifts.
Richard: It's so good to have you home again...and to see Max asleep in his bassinet at home with us.
Marilyn: To be with our family and all that Stewart TLC.
Richard: TLC-tender loving care. That's our motto.
Marilyn: Did you see the washcloth and the towels with the teddy bears on them? Alexandra and the Molinas sent them for max.
Richard: It was so kind of them. Now Max has come into everyone's life.
Marilyn: The house is so alive with him here. The welcome sign over the door. The boxes of presents. The M-Z-X over his bassinet. Robbie put that there. Susan's teddy bear. So cuddly. The beautiful crib from Mom and Dad.
Richard: Oh, and Grandpa's baseball glove. You know, it hung over my crib, too. And it hung over Robbie's crib.
Marilyn: Part of Grandpa's magic?
Richard: Oh, that's not all. It hung over Susan's crib.
Marilyn: Part of Grandpa's magic?
Richard: Oh, that's not all. It hung over Susan's crib.
Marilyn: The same baseball glove?
Richard: That's right. Grandpa hangs it there for good luck. He says it always brought him good luck on the baseball team. He believes it'll bring good luck to all the Stewart babies.
Marilyn: And then he takes it back when Max is ready to use it?
Richard: Yes, and replaces it with a new glove so the old one will be ready for a new member of the Stewart family
Marilyn: Grandpa really loves his family, doesn't he? So do I.
Richard: And so do I.
Richard: And so does Max.
Marilyn: After he eats!


Act 3.

Marilyn: Thanks, Michelle.
Michelle: I hope you like it.
Marilyn: Isn't this baby outfit adorable? With his name on it "Max." Thanks so much, Harry and Michelle.
Richard: We really appreciate it.
Harry: I'm glad you like it. Michelle Picked it out.
Michelle: Yes. I told Daddy to pick blue ones. Blue is for boys, and pink is for girls.
Grandpa: And Max is some boy.
Richard: He's a real Stewart.
Granpa: Right!
Ellen: That was so thoughtful of you, Michelle. Especially to pick it out in blue.
Susan: Would you like to see baby Max, Michelle?
Harry: Could she? Could we?
Michelle: Could I?
Marilyn: Take them upstairs, Susan. Harry and Michelle can watch Max sleeping.
Susan: Let's go.
Harry: Come on, Michelle. Before Max wakes up.
Marilyn: Will you please take this upstairs, Susan?
Susan: Uh-hum.
Marilyn: Thank you.
Philip: Michelle is very grown up for a ten-year-old, huh?
Ellen: She's smart and sensitive for her age.
Grandpa: Growing up without a mother is difficult. You mature quickly.
Ellen: Susan's like a mother to Michelle. They have a good relationship. Do you think Susan and Harry will get married?
Robbie: Yeah. You can count on it.
Philip: I think so. Yes. They get along so well.
Grandpa: I like him. He's good for Susan.
Ellen: He's a little quiet.
Richard: It's hard to do anything but listen in this family.
Ellen: How can anybody get a word in around here?
Marilyn: You're right, Ellen.
Philip: Oh, really?
Richard: It's the way it should be. The Stewarts are the Stewarts!
Grandpa: They always were, and they always will be.
Richard: Right!
Grandpa: They've always got an opinion. Always got something to say.
Marilyn: And now there's Max Stewart, and if he talks as loudly as he cries, we're all in for trouble.
Robbie: He's quiet now.
Marilyn: Mmm-hmm.That's because he's sleeping.
Harry: He's really cute.
Susan: It's not necessary to whisper, Harry. A baby gets used to voices.
Harry: I remember now. We always whispered when Michelle was born.
Michelle: And I didn't sleep well. Daddy told me. I never slept. And when I did, I woke up when I heard someone speak.
Susan: I bet you were cute.
Harry: She sure was.
Michelle: Not as cute as Max. He's like a little doll.
Michelle: Oh, good. Now I can help diaper him.
Susan: Let's get Marilyn. What do you do when he cries like that?
Harry: You pick him up.
Susan: He's so little...so new. Let's call Marilyn.
Marilyn: Time for a feeding and time for a diapering. You're a real Stewart.

Episode 14 Playing Games

Act 1.

Harry: You like living in New York, don't you?
Susan: Oh, I love it. It's so convenient. I can take the bus to work...or the subway...or a taxi. And there's so much to do. Lots of movie houses, and the theater.
Harry: I know what you mean. I'd like to live in the city, but living in New Jersey and the suburbs is better for Michelle. Trees, grass.
Susan: There's a lot of good things about suburban living. I grew up in Riverdale, Remember? So I know. But, as a working woman, I think New York has all the conveniences-including the best tomatoes.
Harry: The truth is, I'd like to live in the city. Michelle's the right age. There are lots of things for her here.
Susan: You're right, Harry. Today is the perfect example. Michelle and her friends are at the aquarium in Brooklyn. They come back here for lunch, then go uptown to the Museum of Natural History. There's so much for young people to see and do. It's just incredible!
Harry: Not just for young people. What about me? I've never been to the aquarium or Museum of Natural History. Have you?
Susan: Oh yes, Harry. My mother and father often took us somewhere in the city on the weekends. Dad was a busy doctor, but he usually managed to squeeze a Sunday in with Richard, Robbie, and me. I used to love to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Harry: I've been there several times. Twice with Michelle.
Susan: You ought to think about spending more time with Michelle at all the great places in the city.
Harry: Well, perhaps, you'll help me select some of the great places. And perhaps, you'll join us?
Susan: Perhaps I will.
Susan: Well, there we are .All set for lunch, Harry.
Harry: It looks inviting. I wish Michelle and her friends would get here. I'm starving, aren't you?
Susan: I can't wait to take a bite of the pumpernickel. It smells so delicious. Coming! Coming! Who is it?
Michelle: Michelle. It's us, Susan.
Susan: Come in Michelle, and bring your friends along. We're on the fifth floor. Oh you're been here before
Harry: Susan, I really appreciate your doing this Michelle and her friends.
Susan: Oh, please, Harry. It's nothing. I'm not just doing it for Michelle. I'm doing it for you.
Harry: Thank you.
Susan: I'm doing it for us, Harry.
Harry: Well, it's...it's important for Michelle to see us together more often. That's true.
Susan: It's important for Michelle and me to get to know each other better. That's important for us.
Harry: That makes me feel good.
Susan: What, Harry? What makes you feel good?
Harry: Well, that you care about Michelle, that you care about me, and that you care about us.
Susan: Well, Harry, that's because I do. I do care.
Harry: They'll be here any minute .Susan, I'd like to continue this conversation later.
Susan: Of course, Harry. We'll finish the conversation when they go to the museum.
Harry: I'd like that.
Susan: So would I.


Act 2.

Michelle: Oh, Daddy! We had such a good time at the aquarium. I saw a real shark. I could almost touch it.
Harry: I'm so glad. Hi, Michelle, why don't you introduce everybody to Susan?
Michelle: Hi, Susan.
Susan: Hi.
Michelle: I'd like you to meet Audrey and her mother, Mrs. Cooper.
Susan: Hello, Audrey. Nice to meet you, Mrs. Cooper. I'm Susan Stewart.
Michelle: And this is Shirley and Nicole.
Susan: Hi, girls.
Harry: Come on in. Come on in, Mrs. Cooper on in, everybody.
Mother: The aquarium was so exciting. I had never been there before. The girls learned a great deal. Frankly, so did I.
Susan: Well, please sit down and tell us all about it during lunch.
Harry: We prepared some tuna fish and cheese sandwiches for lunch.
Michelle: I love tuna fish. Don't you , Audrey?
Susan: I remember when I used to b a Girl Scout. My mother would take us everywhere, too.
Mother: Susan, I understand you're in the toy business.
Susan: Yes, I am. My company manufactures toys and games for children.
Harry: Susan's vice-president in charge of new toys and games.
Susan: And the marketing of new toys and games.
Michelle: Can we test a new game for you, Susan?
Susan: That's an excellent idea, Michelle. I happen to have a game which I brought home to study.
Michelle: Let us try it ! Don't you want to play? Nicole ? Shirley? Audrey?
Susan: We tested it last week on twelve-to fifteen-year-olds, and they found it to be too easy-in other words...boring. We think it might be just right for ten-to twelve-year- olds.
Michelle: That's us, Susan.
Susan: First, you shuffle the deck and lay them face down. Then you select the leader. I'll be the leader. The leader takes the first ten cards and lays them face up on this stand. h-t-e-r-c-z-e-p-e-s. Everyone gets a turn, going counterclockwise, left to right. You have thirty seconds to make a word, using as many letters as possible. You get one point for each letter, plus the person with the longest word gets ten extra point. The first one to get one hundred points wins.
Michelle: That's easy.
Susan: OK, let's go around the atble. You first, Audrey.
Audrey: Chest-c-h-e-s-t.
Susan: Good. That's five points also. It's your turn, Shirley.
Shirley: Creep-c-r-e-e-p.
Susan: Creep. That's another five-letter word. Five points. So far, you're all tied.
Harry: Sheet -s-h-e-e-t-sheet.
Susan: Sheet is a five-letter word. Michelle, your turn.
Michelle: Cheese-c-h-e-e-s-e.
Susan: Terrific! Michelle wins with a six-letter word, plus she gets an additional ten points for a total of sixteen points. How are you enjoying the game so far?
Michelle: I think it's too easy.
Susan: Too easy?
Harry: Michelle!
Susan: It's OK, Harry Michelle is quite right. She just said it's too easy.
Harry: Well, I like the game.
Mother: I enjoyed lunch, Susan. Thank you so much, but we have fo get going to meet the rest of the troop at two 0'clock at the museum.
Susan: Oh, it was nice meeting all of you. I hope you have a wonderful time at the Museum of Natural History.
Harry: Good-bye, everybody. Have a good time.
Girls: Bye.
Harry: See you in front of the museum at five 0'clock.
Mother: Oh, OK. Thanks, Mr. Bennett. That'll be fine. And thanks again for the lunch and for the game.
Michelle: Good-bye, Susan It's not a bad game. It's just... slow.
Susan: Just slow. You helped save our company a lot of money. Bye-bye.
Harry: You are wonderful with kids.
Susan: I am.
Harry: Isn't there a conversation that we have to finish?


Act 3.

Harry: There's a conversation we have to finish.
Susan: What was it about?
Harry: It was about caring.
Susan: Oh?
Harry: Yes, caring. I said that it makes me feel good that you care about Michelle.
Susan: Well, I do care about Michelle.
Harry: And it makes me feel good that you care about me.
Susan: You know I do. You're a...wonderful friend.
Harry: And it makes me feel good that you care about us.
Susan: Well...well, I do, Harry. It's only natural that if I care about Michelle and I care about you, then I care about us.
Harry: It's OK, Susan. We had this part of the conversation before Michelle and her friends arrived. Now comes the good part.
Susan: Like what?
Harry: Well, assume that if you care about Michelle and you care about me and you care abut us, that we can talk about us. I mean-you and me. Isn't that right?
Susan: What are you trying to say, Harry?
Harry: What I'm trying to say...since this is so easy ...Here are ten letters that express my feelings for you.
Susan: Don't be silly, Harry.
Harry: You want a hint? It's two words.
Susan: You're making the game harder.
Harry: Can't you figure it out? Seven letters... two words...that express the feeling that I feel for you in my heart.
Susan: Harry, I get it!
Harry: Well? Does that mean you'll marry me?
Susan: Is that a proposal, or are we just playing a game?
Harry: Sit down, Susan. There's something I have to ask you. Susan, will you marry me?
Susan: It's such an important decision .There's so many things to talk about. There are three things that have to be done first, Harry.
Harry: Three things?
Susan: First, we have to decide where to live.
Harry: Well, that's easy. We talked about that earlier. We'll live in New York.
Susan: All right. Second, we have to talk to Michelle together about being married.
Harry: We'll do that immediately. What' the third thing?
Susan: You have to ask for my father's permission.
Harry: Absolutely! But first things first. We have to go pick up Michelle.
Susan: Oh, I'm so happy, Harry!
Harry: Not as happy as I am.

Clerk: Have a nice stay.
Richard: Thank you. I don't believe this. Well, it isn't the Watermill Inn, but let's get a look at the view.
Marilyn: How is the view?
Richard: Great, if you enjoy looking at a parking lot.
Marilyn: Well, maybe we'll see the view in the morning. Right now, we should clean up this room.
Richard: Sorry, Marilyn.
Marilyn: Why should you be sorry?
Richard: Well, the rain, the room, the view of the parking lot. It isn't the way I hoped it would be.

Richard: Right. Would you give me room service, please? I beg your pardon! Oh, I see. They don't have room service at Old Country Inn.
Marilyn: Well, let's go down to the coffee shop.
Richard: They don't have a coffee shop .We can get our meals at Mrs. Montefiore's down the road.
Marilyn: That's OK, honey. I love walking in the rain.
Richard: Oh, you're being a really good sport about this, Marilyn, but I think we should face the truth.
Marilyn: What's that?
Richard: This is not the way to spend our fifth anniversary.
Marilyn: Well, what do you want to do?
Richard: Why don't we get in the car and drive home?
Marilyn: Oh, Richard, it really isn't that bad.
Richard: Do you want to stick it out for the whole weekend?
Marilyn: Well, I'll admit the room is uncomfortable.
Richard: Uh-hum.
Marilyn: And I do feel bad about your mother having to take care of the baby all weekend.
Richard: Why don't we just check out?
Marilyn: OK.
Marilyn: Hello? Yes. Yes, this is she. Oh, hello! How nice of you to remember us! Yes, My husband did call. You do? Really? It won't be any trouble? Oh, yes, I think we'd like that very much. Fifteen minutes! Thank you. Good-bye. You will never guess.
Richard: Uh... I give up.
Marilyn: Mrs. Montefiore from the Watermill Inn.
Richard: What is she calling about?
Marilyn: They have an opening. Someone just checked out, and Mrs. Montefiore has reserved the honeymoon suite for us.
Richard: You're kidding?
Marilyn: No. Isn't it wonderful?
Richard: It's fantastic! Oh, Now all it has to do is stop raining. Let's go.


Act 3.

Innkeeper: Welcome to the Watermill Inn.
Marilyn: Oh, Richard, it's exactly as it was when we were married!
Innkeeper: And when I got married.
Marilyn: Even the old patchwork quilt is the same!
Innkeeper: My great-grandmother made that quilt when Teddy Roosevelt was President. In those day, when they made quilts, they cut patches from the old clothing of every member in the family os that each one would be a part of it.
Marilyn: What a lovely tradition!
Richard: Thank you for calling us.
Innkeeper: I remember you and your wife from the first time you stayed with us.

Marilyn: We have a baby now.
Innkeeper: How wonderful! A boy or girl?

Innkeeper: Oh, I took the liberty of ordering some breakfast for you. Just put it over there, Charles. Thank you, Charles. Compliments of the Watermill Inn.
Richard: Thank you.
Marilyn: Thank you so much.
Richard: Now, this is my idea of a good time. Let's see...Hotcakes and maple syrup, with scrambled eggs.
Marilyn: Umm...smell that coffee... cinnamon and cloves.
Richard: Homemade buttermilk biscuits.
Marilyn: Slices of orange with burnt honey.
Richard: Let's eat!
Marilyn: First I want to call home and check on your mother and the baby.
Richard: Honey, if there were any problems, she would call us.
Marilyn: She doesn't know we've changed hotels.
Richard: You're right. Of course.
Marilyn: Hello, operator. I'd like to call Riverdale, New York.
Richard: This food is heavenly, isn't it?
Marilyn: This whole place is heavenly. Do you remember that old desk? Mrs. Montefiore told me that George Washington sat at that desk and wrote to his wife Martha.
Richard: What do you want to do after breakfast?
Marilyn: Why don't we take a walk down to the river?
Richard: In the rain?
Marilyn: No. Look out the window. The sun is shining!
Richard: Now this is my idea fo a good time!

Episode 16 Full of Surprise

Act 1.

Robbie: The mailman just dropped some mail in our box Grandpa.
Grandpa: Probably a lot of advertising and bills. Why don't you write to me, Robbie, so I can get some interesting mail?
Robbie: You were right, Grandpa. Advertising, bills, bills, advertising.
Grandpa: Yes. It's just like I said, Robbie. Nothing interesting.
Robbie: You won't believe it, Grandpa, but there's a letter here addressed to you, Mr.Malcolm Stewart, and it looks like a personal letter.
Grandpa: Oh, it must be a bill.
Robbie: I don't think so. The return name and address is Pete Waers, RFD Number 1, Chesterton.
Grandpa: You're joking. Pete Waters?
Robbie: Pete Waters, RFD Number 1, Chesterton. You know him?
Grandpa: Do I know Pete Waters? You bet I do! He was my roommate in college. He visited with Grandma and me in Florida about five years ago.
Robbie: What does he say? Is he OK?
Grandpa: Yeah, he's fine. Just fine. He's writing to invite me to spend a weekend with him at his farm. He's planning a get-together with two or three other college friends. The dindof a fifty-year anniversary reunion.
Robbie: Sounds like fun. Fifty Years? Wow!
Grandpa: It sounds like fun to me, too, Robbie.
Robbie: What kind of farm does he have?
Grandpa: I've never been three, Robbie, but he has chickens and cows and all. That means fresh eggs and fresh milk.
Robbie: Does he have a family?
Granpa: No, he doesn't fobbie. He never married. He's not as lucky as I am to have a family and grandchildren . I'm a lucky man.
Robbie: How come he never got married?
Grandpa: That's a good question, Robbie. A very good question. He never married because the girl he was in love with in college married someone else. As simple as that. He never got over it.
Robbie: He must have loved her very much.
Grandpa: Yes. Very much. Lillian Winters. She was in our class.
Robbie: And what happened?
Grandpa: She was in love with Donald McGrath, the quarterback on our football team.
Robbie: Football players are always popular with the ladies.
Grandpa: She liked Pete, and they went to dances together. But her heart was with Donald.
Robbie: Did he ever get over it?
Grandpa: No, he never did.
Robbie: Where is she today?
Grandpa: I don't know. Maybe Lillian will be at the reunion.
Robbie: You think so?
Grandpa: Pete's full of surprises.
Robbie: I wish I could go there with you, Grandpa. What do you think the surprise will be?
Grandpa: With Pete, you never know, Robbie.
Robbie: Won't it be exciting to see all your college friends there again?
Grandpa: It is already. I'm kind of excited about going now. Next weekend...sleep over Friday and Saturday night and come back Sunday. I can't wait!
Ribbie: Don't you think you ought to call Pete and tell him you're coming?
Grandpa: You're reading my mind, Robbie.


Act 2.

Attendant: Hello. What can I do for you?
Grandpa: Hi. Fill'er up. I need a full tank.
Attendant: Check the hood?
Grandpa: No, thanks.
Attendant: Whereabouts are you headed?
Grandpa: Pete Waters's farm, near Chesterton.
Attendant: I know it well. Pete Waters' lived around here almost as long as I have.
Grandpa: How long is it going to take for me to get there?
Attendant: About fifteen minutes. There's a shortcut-is you know it.
Grandpa: No, I don't. Could you tell me how to use the shortcut?
Attendant: Sure. You take the next left turn. You'll see a stop sign. Make a right at the stop sign. Stay on that road, and you'll cross a blue bridge. Then you'll see a big old red bam. That's the back of Pete Waters's place.
Grandpa: That's quite a difference from the directions that Pete sent me.
Attendant: Now, if you take that route, it's probably a lot simpler, but it'll take you ten minutes longer.
Grandpa: OK. Let me repeat it. I take the next left turn to the stop sign. Then a right across a blue bridge, and then a big red barn.
Attendant: Can't miss it.
Grandpa: How much do I owe you?
Attendant: Well, that'll be eighteen dollars and seventy cent. No charge for the cleanup. It's on the house.
Grandpa: Well, here's a twenty.
Attendant: Ah. OK. That's a dollar and thirty cents change. Thee we go... will mae twenty. Thanks.
Grandpa: Thank you. And thanks for the directions.
Grandpa: This must be Peteps barn.Turn right to the house. Hi.
Worker: Hi. What can I do for you?
Grandpa: Is this the Pete Waters farm?
Worker: It is.
Grandpa: I'm a friend of Pete's . I'm looking for the house.
Worker: It's just over yonder. Keep along this road till you get to the end of the fence. You'll see the chicken. His house is on the left.
Grandpa: Well, thanks.
Grandpa: "have gone to the railroad station. Back soon with a surprise. Make yourself at home. Have a look around Pete." Same old Pete Waters. Always full of surprises.


Act 3.

Amold: Don't tell me. Please don't tell me. I recognize you...
Peggy: Oh, don't be silly, Arnie. Of course you recognize him. Except for the beard, he hasn't changed in fifty years. It's Malcolm Stewart!
Amold: I know it's Malcolm Stewart. You haven't changed much in fifty years.
Grandpa: Peggy-Peggy Pendleton! You're Peggy Pendleton!
Amold: Who am I, you old rascal? You don't recognize me, do you?
Grandpa: I know who you are. You're Amold Franklin! I know who you are!
Peggy: You look wonderful, Malcolm!
Grandpa: Sit down. Pete isn't home.
Amold: Really?
Grandpa: No. He left a note on the door saying he was going to the railroad station to pick up a surprise.
Peggy: He's so funny. Always full of surprises, even fifty years later.
Grandpa: The two of you look unbelievable!
Amnold: How's your family? Oh, I was sorry to hear about your wife having passed away.
Grandpa: Yes. About four years ago.
Peggy: And you're living with your children now? In New York? Pete wrote us and told us.
Grandpa: Yup. Retired and moved to New York to live with my son and his family.
Peggy: By the way, what do you think this big surprise is?
Amold: It could be most anything, knowing Pete.
Grandpa: Hey, that must be Pete! Now we'll find out about the surprise.
Pete: So good to see you all!
Peggy: Oh, pete, Pete! Oh, It's so good to see you!
Pete: Remember Lillian?
Lillian: I remember all of you. You haven't changed a bit.
Peggy: Lillian! Oh, my gosh!

Marilyn: What are you doing?
Richard: I think I've got them.
Marilyn: You think you've got what?
Richard: Performing arts-performing arts centers. I think I've got them all, but I'm not sure.
Marilyn: I think you have got it, Richard. Lincoln Center, home of the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet, the New York Philharmonic.
Richard: Shubert Alley, center of the theater on Broadway.
Marilyn: And Comegie Hall. And the others. I do have it all.
Marilyn: You have been working on this for some time, Richard. I'm glad you feel you've finally put it all together. What now?
Richard: Now for the hard part.
Marilyn: Oh, you think you're going to have a hard time getting the album published?
Richard: Well, it won't be easy.
Marilyn: So, what do you think you're going to do?
Richard: Does the name Harvey Carlson ring a bell?
Marilyn: Oh,yes! Harvey Carlson! I remember.
Richard: He said I should call him. He's the publisher of the Carlson Publishing Company. He said they need a new book of photographs, and he really liked my concept.
Marilyn: So, why don't you call him in the morning?
Richard: Do you think I have enough to show him?
Marilyn: I've been through every section with you, Richard. It's quite complete. And now that you're satisfied, with the performing arts section, I think you should show it to Mr.Carlson.
Richard: You're right. My Family Album, U.S.A. feels right. I'll call in the morning and set up an appointment to see him.
Marilyn: He's going to love your work. Come on. Let's get some sleep.
Richard: Is it too early to call Mr.Carlson?
Marilyn: Seven after nine? No. I'm sure he's in his office.
Richard: His number is five, five, five, seven, five, three, two. Five, five, five, seven, five three, two. Hello. Mr. Carlson, please.
Receptionist: Mr.Carlson is busy at the moment. May I help you?
Richard: I'd like to make an appointment with him.
Receptionist: And your name is...?
Richard: My name is Richard Stewart. He told me to call him about my project, Family Album, U.S.A.
Receptionist: Mr. Stewart, I just spoke to Mr.Carlson. He would like to see you. But the only time he's available this week is tomorrow morning at ten 0'clock.
Richard: Thanks. Thanks a lot. Good-bye. Well, it's done. Tomorrow morning at a publisher's office.
Marilyn: Oh, it's so exciting, isn't it, Richard?
Richard: Well, finally a publisher will see my work.


Act 2.

Receptionist: Good morning.
Richard: Good morning. My name is Richard Stewart. I'm here to see Mr.Carlson.

Richard: Thank you for seeing me on such short notice.
Carlson: I hope you've brought your pictures along. I see that you have. Let's get right to it. We need a new coffee table book, and a book of photos about the United States still feels right. OK, let's take a look. Good. Very good. Family Album, U.S.A. It's an excellent title. If you had to describe the book in one sentence, how would you do it?
Richard: Well, I'd describe it as a book which is a ... a portrait of the United States-the places, the people-mostly the people. The things they do, the ways they live, the placesd they visit, and the landmarks. A photographic journey.
Carlson: These are wonderful-these photos in your pen arts section. Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center.
Richard: I'm glad you like them.
Carlson: I do, but...
Richard: But?
Carlson: There's something missing. You've got a good eye, Richard. You're a terrific photographer. But before I can publish your work. I need to meet with my marketing department, and you've got to do one more thing.
Richard: What's that, Mr. Carlson?
Carlson: In the section on culture, you've included performing arts centers, but you've left out street performance.The mimes. The musicians. The dancers-in the parks and on the streets. Richard, if you go out and photograph street performances in the city, you'll have it.
Richard: That is a great ieda.The performing arts centers and the street performances. I'll do it.
Carlson: If you do it, I'll publish your work.
Richard: Are you serious?
Carlson: I've never been more serious. When do you think you can return with street performances?
Richard: A couple of weeks.
Carlson: If they're as good as the rest of these pictures, it's a deal.
Richard: You won't be disappointed, Mr.Carlson. Thanks.
Carlson: Good-bye, Richard, and good luck. See you in two weeks.
Richard: Good-bye, Mr. Carlson. Thanks. So if you like the street-performance photos, you'll really publish Family Album, U.S.A.?
Carlson: When I way something, I mean it. Go to work. Goodbye.
Richard: Good-bye.


Act 3.

Richard: Two weeks. I said I could do it in two weeks, and I did it.
Marilyn: The pictures you've taken are fabulous, Richard. Mr. Carlson will love them.
Richard: Monday morning. I'm going to show him the photos on Monday morning. I can't wait!
Marilyn: I'm very proud of you. You really did a beautiful job. I know he will love the new photographs for your book.
Richard: Yeah. I really did do a good job, didn't I? Hey, you know? There's still some film left on this roll, and there's one person I haven't photographed in a long time.

Episode 18 Making Difference

Act 1.

Ellen: I don't believe it!
Philip: What's wrong?
Ellen: Carter Boswell!
Philip: Who's Carter Boswell?
Ellen: He's running for the school board. The election's next month.
Philip: What's wrong with wanting to be on the school board?
Ellen: Nothing. But he wants to cut the school budget!
Philip: Maybe it needs cutting.
Ellen: Cutting the budget is fine, but he wants to do it by cutting all the cultural programs. No music, no dance, no concert, no stage presentations.
Philip: Why does he want to do that?
Ellen: He says it's to save the taxpayers' money, and I think he believes that the taxpayers' will vote for him if he spends less on the cultural programs.
Philip: He's probably right. Lots of people want their taxes used for new books and a new paint job in the schoolrooms.
Ellen: Maybe some of us would like to pay a little bit more and keep the cultural programs for our kids.
Philip: Well, I'm not sure, Ellen. I hear it from my patients. Lots of people are tired of higher taxes.
Ellen: I know, but if Boswell wins he'll be an important decision maker on the school board, and he doesn't know anything about our children's education.
Philip: Who's running against him?
Ellen: Nobody. That's the problem.
Philip: Well, it sounds to me like Carter Boswell is going to win this seat on the board.
Ellen: Oh, not if I can stop him!
Philip: And how are you going to stop him?
Ellen: I don't know. Maybe I'll run against him.
Philip: Well, You've got my vote.
Ellen: I'm serious, Philip. Why shouldn't I run?
Robbie: Why shouldn't you run for what, Mom?
Philip: Your mother is thinking of running for the school board.
Robbie: Hey, that's terrific, Mom!
Richard: Against Carter Boswell? Great!
Ellen: Well, if I run for office, the voters will have a clear choice. I stand for everything Boswell doesn't.
Marilyn: I think a lot of people will vote for you against Boswell, Ellen. I'll vote for you.
Ellen: Will you help me if I do run?
Marilyn: Absolutely.
Ellen: The trouble is it takes a little bit of money to run a campaign.
Philip: I think you can make a difference, Ellen. And in a short campaign you wouldn't need as much money. You know something, Ellen? Why not give the people of Riverdale a clear choice? I'm with you. You can make a difference.
Maxwell: Come in.
Ellen: Mr. Maxwell?
Maxwell: Yes, Charles Maxwell.
Ellen: My name is Ellen Stewart.
Maxwell: Hello. Please, sit down. You asked to see me. What would you like to see me about?
Ellen: I'd like your help.
Maxwell: Well, I'm editor of the most influential newpaper in Riverdale. Actually, it's the only newspaper. A lot of people would like my help. Do you have a story?
Ellen: I'm planning to run for the school board.
Maxwell: Against Carter Boswell?
Ellen: Yes.
Maxwell: Well, that is news.
Ellen: Will you announce that I'm running?
Maxwell: Sure. But I need some information.
Ellen: Of course.
Maxwell: Why will the voters vote for you against Boswell, Mrs.Stewart?
Ellen: Because I care.
Maxwell: "Vote for Ellen Stewart.She cares." Not a bad slogan. But what do you care about?
Ellen: Well, I care about the children of our town. I don't want hem to grow up without cultural programs in our school.
Maxwell: Do you have a plan?
Ellen: I want our children to learn more than reading, writing, and airthmetic. I want to keep the after-school programs-the music, the concerts.
Maxwell: It's not a bad plan. But who's going to pay for all of this?
Ellen: We are. The citizens of Riverdale, of course. I plan to get help from the businessmen and the corporations of Riverdale.
Maxwell: That's fair enough. Exactly what do you want from me, Mrs.Stewart?
Ellen: You don't know me. I can't expect you to take my side a against Boswell. But I do nee some publicity so that the people of our town know that I'm running for office and that I car about our children.
Maxwell: Fair enough. I certainly can print the news. And you are now making news.


Act 2.

Grandpa: Here are the fliers, hot of the press!
Ellen: Looks good. Simple.
Marilyn: Right over there, Grandpa. You fold the fliers, Richard and I will put them into the envelopes.
Richard: We finished addressing over three hundred envelopes.
Grandpa: Need another box?
Ellen: Good work, gang.
Mike: Hi, this is Mike Johnson. Can I speak with Mr. Or Mrs.Anderson? Thanks.
Robbie: Mr.Nelson. Hi. This is Robbie Stewart. Did you know my mother is running for the school board?
Jimmy: Yes, Miss Kim, Ellen Stewart. "She cares." Oh, see you at the polls.
Robbie: Certainly, I'll give her your best wishes, Mr.Nelson.
Mike: Hi, this is Mike Johnson. Can I speak with Mr. or Mrs.Burns? Thank you.
Ellen: We have done so much in such a short amount of time. I can't believe it! Wait till Philip come and sees our progress!
Robbie: Everyone saw story in the Riverdale newspaper.
Ellen: Mr. Maxwell was very kind to print my announcement.
Grandpa: It helps enormously. Everybody in riverdale reads his paper.
Richard: Your photo in it helped, too.
Ellen: Thanks to you, Richard, it's a good picture.
Philip: Well, hi, all.
Richard&Robbie: Hi, Dad.
Ellen: Hello, darling.
Philip: May I...may I help?
Marilyn: Licking envelopes.
Grandpa: I fold the fliers.
Richard: We stuff them.
Philip: And I lick the envelopes.
Robbie: Hey, everybody, Mrs.Greenberg is on the phone. She says Carter Boswell is on the TV right now-doing a commercial.
Philip: What channel?
Robbie: Five.
Philip: Five?
Boswell: ...and if you ask what I care about, I'll tell you. I care about the school buildings in need of paint. I care about more lockers for the teachers. I care about new fixtures in the hallways-not music or dancing or entertainment. I care about the practical things. If you do, vote for me, Carter Boswell.
Ellen: A lot of people will agree with him.
Philip: I told you.
Robbie: Too bad kids can't vote. It's our school, but we can't vote.
Richard: There are people in favor of the cultural programs, Mom.
Marilyn: There are, Ellen. Don't be upset by Boswell's commercial.
Philip: You have to go on television, too.
Ellen: Boswell's a powerful speaker.
Philip: You can be, too. Your ideas are good ones.
Ellen: I don't know. I'm not sure I'm up to it.


Act 3.

Ellen: ...my slogan is "I care". I care about people, not things, Vote for me, Ellen Stewart. I care. How was it?
Richard: You were terrific!
Ellen: Can I see it?
Richard: Sure.
Ellen: Hello. My name is Ellen Stewart, and I'm running for the open seat on the school board. My slogan is "I care". What does the word care mean?...I care about people, not things. Vote for me, Ellen Stewart. I care.
Philip: I like it, but now what? How can we possibly get it on so Riverdale will see it and hear it?
Richard: Leave it to me.
Ellen: ...I mean that when I say "I care". I care about people, not things. Vote for me, Ellen Stewart. I care.
Marilyn: What happened?
Richard: Mom is now on television in every appliance store in Riverdale, except Hamlin's. He's a Boswell voter.
Philip: That's a brilliant idea, Richard!
Grandpa: You inherited your father's brains.
Philip: We got our brains from you, Day.
Richard: And guess what? I called channel five. Their TV news is going to cover it. "Housewife campaigns in appliance stores." And I'll bet some magazine will pick up the story, too.
Robbie: Mom, you're going to win! I know it!
Philip: Hold it, Robbie! Just cool down. I know we're getting some attention now, but in the end the voters will have to decide.
Grandpa: You're going to win. Trust me!
Reporter: In the hotly contested race for the one seat on the Riverdale School Board, Mrs.Ellen Stewart has taken an early lead.
Robbie: She's winning! Mom, you're winning!
Reporter: Now returning to other local news...Riverdale High School beat its rival Horace Mann in baseball today...
Ellen: It's too soon to know for certain.
Philip: You're ahead. That's better than being behind.
Reporter: More sports after this.
Ellen: It's not over yet. Let's just all calm down, and wait for the final results.
Grandpa: Ellen, why don't you go out to the backyard and get some fresh air?
Ellen: Thank you, Grandpa. I need some.
Ellen: What happened?
Philip: You came very close, Ellen.
Grandpa: You lost by only a hundred and twenty-one votes.
Ellen: I lost.
Richard: You tried, Mom.
Marilyn: You lost by a very small number of votes.
Robbie: Only one hundred and twenty-one votes! I'm sorry, Mom.
Ellen: There just wasn't enough time.
Philip: Look, you've made a very strong impressing on our community. You'll have another chance next election.
Philip: Hello. Oh, yes, yes, Mr.Maxwell.
Ellen: Hello Mr.Maxwell.
Maxwell: How are you? I just called to tell you that you are very impressive. You lost the election, but you won the attention of the residents of Riverdale, of Boswell, and of me.
Ellen: Well, thank you, Mr. Maxwell. I appreciate your kind words. I needed that.
Maxwell: I hear Boswell wants to appoint you to a special arts committee. I'm sending over a reporter in the morning to interview you.
Ellen: You are?
Maxwell: I'm going to do an article on "Ellen Stewart-she cares. "Maybe we'll all care now. Good-bye.
Ellen: Thank you-and good-bye.
Philip: What was that about?
Ellen: You were right, Philip. I did make a difference in town.
Robbie: And in this family.

Episode 19 I Do

Act 1.

Harry: It looks wrong.
Philip: Hmmm. It is wrong.
Richard: Are they always that difficult to make?
Philip: The truth is...yes. I'll try again.
Robbie: At this rate, the wedding will take place tomorrow.
Philip: Not to worry. OK.Here we go.
Harry: I'm worried, Philip. What if we can't tie the tie?
Richard: If we can't tie the tie, then there can't be a wedding.
Robbie: You'd better not make Harry any more nervous than he is. Don't worry.We'll figure a way.
Grandpa: How're you doing, fellas?
Harry: Not so good, Grandpa. We can't get this bow tie tied. Nobody knows how to do it.Do you?
Grandpa: No. I never could, either.
Philip: Well, you have your own tuxedo. How do you tie your bow tie?
Robbie: Yeah, Grandpa, I've seen you in it. You look great.How do you tie it?
Grandpa: I don't.
Richard: You don't?
Harry: What do you mean?
Grandpa: I never could tie one of those...things...bow ties. I have always worn a clip-on bow tie.
Harry: A clip-on?
Philip: Of course. Now I remember.
Grandpa: Yes, it's so easy. All you do is clip it around under your collar.
Richard: We all need one of those.
Robbie: The tuxedo rental store. Do you think they're open?
Philip: Should be. Sunday's their big day.
Richard: I'll call and find out.
Grandpa: Well, if they're not, I'll lend you mine, Harry. You're the only one who really needs to be wearing a tuxedo, anyway.
Harry: Thanks, Grandpa.
Philip: I'm the father of the bride. I'm supposed to be worried about my daughter, and here I am with the man that's marrying my daughter-worrying about him.
Grandpa: Poor Harry. I know the feeling. Wedding-day litters.
Robbie: Are they open?
Richard: We're in luck. They're open. And they have lots of clip-on bow ties.
Robbie: I'll bicycle down to the village and get them.
Harry: You'd better hurry, Robbie.
Grandpa: There's lots of time. A little over two hours.
Harry: In two hours and fifteen minutes I'll be married to Susan.
Philip: And be a true member of the Stewart family.
Grandpa: Oh, you're a lucky guy, Harry. Susan is one of the best women you'll ever find. She's just like her grandma.
Richard: Now, once you put the ring on Susan's finger, you are one of us, Harry. And don't ever forget it.
Harry: Ring? Ring? Oh my! What did I do with the rings? I put them in the pocket of my sports jacket.
Richard: No, I think you put them in your tuxedo jacket pocket. Remember?
Harry: Right. What did I do with the rings?
Philip: Didn't you give them to Richard? He's your best man. I remember. You gave them to Richard.
Richard: Oh, yeah. I remember now. You handed them to me. What did I do with them?
Harry: I hope they aren't lost.
Grandpa: Oh, don't worry, Harry. They have to be here.
Richard: I remember. I gave them to Robbie to hold so I wouldn't lose them.
Harry: Oh, I forget. What time is it?
Grandpa: It's still a little over two hours, Harry. Just relax.
Harry: What about the rings?
Richard: I'm sure Robbie has them.
Harry: No, NO, Robbie doesn't have them. He gave them to me to hold on to them because he didn't want the responsibility of holding them. I put them in my tuxedo-but in the lapel pocket. That's a relief. I was really worried.
Richard: I'll hold on to them for you. The best man always keeps the rings.
Harry: You're right. You're right. You hold on to them so there won't be problem later.
Philip: Well, now, I think we'd better get dressed, fellas.
Grandpa: All right!
Richard: Robbie will bring the ties back.
Harry: Hey, leaving me?
Grandpa: You'll be fine.
Philip: Try to take it easy. It'll all be over in two hours.
Harry: Over?
Grandpa: The wedding ceremony will be over. You'll be husband and wife.
Harry: I guess you're right. Two hours from now.Two hours from now.


Act2.

Marilyn: And now for...something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.
Susan: OK. Let's see. Something borrowed. That's this dress. Borrowed from Marilyn.
Ellen: Something blue. My wristband. I wore it when I married your father.
Susan: Oh, Mother. I forgot you still had it. It's just so lovely.
Ellen: I bought it in an antique shop when I was about eighteen years old. I saved it for my wedding day.
Susan: And you saved it for me, didn't you, Mother?
Ellen: Yes, honey I did. Are we ever going to finish?
Ellen: All right. OK. Something borrowed.
Marilyn: The wedding dress. And something blue.
Susan: The wristband. Something old?
Ellen: Something old. Right. What's old?
Susan: Of course! Something old. I had planned to wear them.
Ellen: Grandma's pearls! Oh, Grandpa will be so pleased that you're wearing them. I'm sure he misses Grandma on a day like this.
Susan: Help me with them, Marilyn. I've never worn them before. I've been saving them for today.
Ellen: Saving them for today? Oh, you're a real Stewart! Marilyn: Oh, there you go. Lovely!
Ellen: Lovely!
Susan: Lovely!
Marilyn: Something borrowed, something blue. Something old... and now for something new.
Susan: The veil. Oh, it's so beautiful, Marilyn!
Ellen: You really are a fabulous designer, Marilyn.
Marilyn: Doesn't it look jst right on Susan?
Ellen: Perfect!
Marilyn: And when you both say, "I do," Harry will lift this veil over your head and kiss the bride.
Ellen: Oh, I'm so excited!
Susan: When you said, "I do, " Marilyn, it suddenly became real.
Marilyn: That's all right, Susan. You've got the wedding-day jitters! In less than two hours, you will be Mrs.Harry Bennett.
Ellen: Oh, that reminds me. If we don't get dressed, we won't be there to see Susan become Mrs. Harry Bennett.
Susan: Before you leave-do I look all right?
Ellen: You never looked better.
Susan: Mom.
Marilyn: She's right. And that's dear little Max. Got to go and feed him.
Susan: What am I Supposed to do?
Marilyn: Take off the veil, kick off your shoes, and sit down.
Ellen: We'll come upstairs and get you in a little while.
Marilyn: Richard's going to take some wedding pictures before the ceremony. So just relax.
Susan: Are you kidding? Relax?
Susan: Susan Stewart...you are about to become Susan Bennett-Mrs. Harry Bennett.


Act 3.

Judge: Philip...Ellen.
Philip: Ah, Judge.
Judge: How are you? How are you?
Ellen: Hello.
Judge: I think it's time for the wedding to begin.
Judge: All right, ladies and gentlemen. Please take your places. The wedding ceremony is about to begin.
Judge: OK, Jane. Start the music.
Judge: Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to join this man and this woman in holy matrimony. Do either of you have any reason why you should not legally be joined in marriage? Is there anyone present who can show any just cause why these two people should not be legally joined in marriage? Then, Harry Bennett, do you take Susan Stewart to be your lawful, wedded wife?
Harry: I do.
Judge: And you, Susan Stewart, do you take Harry Bennett to be your lawful, wedded husband?
Susan: I do
Judge: The rings, please.
Richard: I have them, Harry.
