Scene One - Twin Peaks Court House
"All you have to do is be honest," Josh Levitt tells Jeff as
they sit beside each other in the court room, as the judge is reviewing
some notes before he will start the proceedings. Jeff nods back to his
lawyer, hoping that this will work. He knows that he has been suffering
so much since Leah died last year; the fact that Robbie kicked him out
of his house that he was sharing with Leah has made everything so much
worse. In Jeff's mind, being kicked out of the house has caused much of
his relationship strain with Paige. This is Jeff's last chance to make
sure that he is doing everything he can to preserve Leah's memory and
making sure that everything is the way that she would have wanted it to
"I'm ready to proceed," Judge Franklin Ross announces to everyone
in the court room as he looks out at Jeff and then over to Robbie. "It
appears that each side will have their party speak and then just one other
witness that each side has requested speak. Is that correct?"
Robbie looks at Natasha before she stands up. He gulps realizing that
he and Jeff must have both asked for Paige to be there today to say something.
He wonders what his daughter will say as she must feel torn between him
"That's correct," Natasha says back to the Judge.
"Very well," Franklin replies to them. "We will start with
Mr. Levitt's side as Mr. Claus is the one who requested the petition to
contest the estate of the late Leah Robertson. Mr. Claus, please move
forward and take the stand."
Jeff looks at his lawyer one final time as he takes a deep breath and
then he slowly walks over to the stand. As he is sworn in, the door to
the court room opens and Paige appears. She slowly walks in, her eyes
on Jeff as he sits down. She sits in the back row as Robbie turns and
looks at her. Robbie gives her a quick smile but she doesn't respond to
his gesture. She hates that she is there, being forced to testify in a
trial that pits her two Dad's against each other. She looks forward and
"Mr. Claus," Josh Levitt begins to say as he stands up and moves
towards the stand. "Can you please tell the court what your marital
status was when Leah Robertson passed away last year?"
Jeff pauses for a moment, trying to collect himself. "I was married."
"And, to whom were you married to?"
"Leah Robertson," Jeff replies to the court. "We got married
in Lake Tahoe right before she died."
"I'm terribly sorry for your loss," Josh says back to him. "Is
there a reason that you decided to sue Mr. Calimo for half of your wife's
"Yea because he got everything that I should have got!" Jeff
quickly replies to him, suddenly realizing how heated he got in his answer.
"Why did Mr. Calimo receive so much from Leah's estate?" Josh
"Leah and Robbie were married for a long time," Jeff explains
to his lawyer. "My marriage to Leah and her death happened so quickly
that Leah didn't have time to update her will. So, everything that she
would have left to me, Robbie got instead."
"Do you honestly believe that your wife would have left you the house
in which you two were living in together before she died?" Josh asks
"Of course I do," Jeff replies to him. "My wife wouldn't
have wanted me to move out of the house we shared together. The house
we shared with our daughter, Paige. I absolutely think that Leah would
have wanted me to have the house. Everything happened so quickly, she
never got the chance."
"No further questions," Josh to Jeff as he looks at the Judge.
"Very well," Franklin explains to everyone. "Seeming the
nature of this trial, I don't think it will be necessary for the other
side to cross examine each other. Ms. Calimo, please get your client ready
for his testimony."
Natasha looks over at Robbie and nods her head to him. "You'll be
fine," she whispers to him, as he turns around and looks at Paige,
who finally makes eye contact with him.
Scene Two - The Pampa Grill
"Are you sure you don't want to be at the court house today?"
Eva asks Dominick as they sit across from each other as they have lunch
together at the restaurant. Eva knows that today is the court case that
will determine how Leah's estate will be handled, which means that Dominick
could be impacted by the outcome.
Dominick waves his hand in the air before he picks up his gin and tonic.
"I'm positive," he says to her as he takes a drink. "Robbie
and Jeff are both grown men, they don't need me there to hold either of
their hands. Whatever happens, will happen."
"I'm worried about Paige," Eva replies to him. "I can't
imagine what she's going through today."
Dominick nods back to her. "I know," he says to her. "She's
the one who is really suffering from all of this fighting. I just hope
that after the court case, Jeff and Robbie start putting my Granddaughter
"You know," she says back to him as she picks up her glass of
white wine and she gets a sly grin on her face. "I have an idea that
could make all the difference to Paige moving forward."
Dominick arches his eyebrow and puts his fork full of salad back down
to his plate. He looks over into Eva's eyes. "And, what would that
She reaches across the table and grabs his hand. "Let's finally get
married," she tells him. "I've waited for so long and I'm tired
of waiting, Dominick," she continues to tell him. "Now that
Felicia has remembered everything that happened in Lake Tahoe, there is
nothing holding us back. And, just imagine how it will look to Paige,
you and I standing united together to help her through this rough time."
Dominick can't help but smile back at her. "I know that's what you
want," he replies to her. "And, you have been so patient."
"Why do I feel like there's a but coming
" she interrupts
"But," he looks back at her. "I want to make sure that
Felicia is really okay with her memory coming back before I do divorce
her. Too much too soon could be upsetting to her."
"Of course it could be," Eva rolls her eyes back to him. "Everything
is always about poor Felicia!"
"Eva," Dominick says back to her, trying to make her understand.
"No Dominick," she cuts him off. "Save it for someone who
wants to hear it."
Before he can reply, Eva stands up and quickly walks away from the table.
Dominick picks up his gin and tonic and quickly takes another drink of
"How are you feeling today?" Frederick asks Felicia as they
enter the restaurant and are quickly shown a seat. They don't notice Eva
storming out of the restaurant after they move into the main dining room.
Frederick hopes that Felicia is finally starting to feel better about
everything that she remembered about the events in Lake Tahoe, although
he would understand if she was still shaken by her role in Leah's death.
"I'm feeling a little bit better," Felicia says back to him
as they sit down across from each other. "I'm trying to remember
that I wasn't in the right frame of mind. Not that it justifies my role
"Please," Frederick interrupts her. "Let's not say what
happened. It's painful enough."
She smiles back to him, realizing that he cares for her. "You're
right," she says as she takes sip of her lemon water. "I do
want to thank you though."
"Thank me?" Frederick asks as he arches his eyebrow.
"I couldn't have done this without you. I couldn't have remembered
everything that happened to my daughter without you suggesting that I
undergo hypnosis and then you actually putting me under."
"No," she stops him. "Let me finish. I was so desperate
to remember," she continues as she gets tears in her eyes. "And,
while the memories are painful and hard to handle, I'm glad that I know
what happened. There are no more uncertainties. I will always be so grateful
to you for helping me remember."
He reaches over and grabs her hand as a tear falls down her cheek. "You
have to know that I only want the very best for you, Felicia. I am happy
that I could help you and I will continue to help you in any way that
I possibly can."
Felicia wipes her eyes and looks back at her doctor. For a moment, they
get lost in each other's eyes before she shakes her head. "Something
else has been on my mind lately."
"What is that?" he asks her, still looking into her eyes.
"Well, while I was under hypnosis I remembered everything about Leah's
death," she begins to say back to him. "But, I'm wondering,
what else did I say while I was under hypnosis?"
Frederick gulps as he thinks about the sessions where Felicia admitted
to him that she is still in love with Dominick. He had long hoped that
she would be over her husband so they could be a couple together but,
alas, if she admitted while under hypnosis that she still loves Dominick,
that must be where her heart lies.
"Nothing of importance," he finds himself telling her and she
nods back to him.
"I'm relieved to know that," she says back to him. "I can't
imagine anything else worthwhile coming out of my mouth."
"You're right," he says to her. "There was nothing worthwhile."
Scene Three - Twin Peaks Court Room
As Robbie is getting sworn in for his testimony, Jeff sits at the table
next to Josh Levitt and tries to collect himself. His heart is racing
a million miles a minute as he just finished testifying. He only hopes
that he was able to convince the Judge that he does deserve what is rightfully
his: half of Leah's estate. If nothing else, he hopes that he will be
able to get his house back. He wants to live in the house he shared with
Leah and Paige. He turns around and sees Paige sitting in the back of
the court room.
Paige can feel her father's eyes on her. Just as she did with Robbie,
she doesn't make eye contact with Jeff because she hates what the fighting
between them. She just wishes everything would go back to normal, like
when Leah was still alive.
"You may be seated Mr. Calimo," Franklin tells Robbie, who sits
down in the chair.
"Mr. Calimo," Natasha starts to speak to her brother as she
stands up from her chair. "How long were you married to the deceased,
Robbie looks at Natasha and then over at the Judge. "For well over
10 years," he replies to her.
"That's a long time to be married to someone," Natasha says
back to him.
Robbie nods to her. "Leah and I were very happy together."
"What happened to cause a happy marriage to fall apart?" Natasha
asks him next.
Robbie sighs before he starts to reply. "It's never just one thing,"
he admits to her. "But one of the biggest issues we had was when
Leah was unfaithful to me."
"Your wife had an affair? Do you know the other man that she slept
Robbie tries to put a smile on his face as he relives the harsh memories
from the past. "I do," he finally says back to his sister. "It
was Jeff Claus, the very man who is suing me today."
"So, the man who caused your marriage to break up is now suing you?"
"That's right," Robbie nods back to Natasha.
"Why do you think you were left everything in Leah's estate?"
Natasha continues to grill him.
"Honestly? I think I was left everything because Leah felt bad for
what happened," Robbie tells her and the Judge. "I'm not saying
that Leah didn't have feelings for Jeff because I'm sure she did. But
they didn't have what we had together. We were married for over 10 years.
We thought we shared a child together. We had this amazing life together
and when it was over, I think Leah felt horrible for everything
that happened. Deep down, I don't think either of us stopped loving each
other in some capacity."
"Thank you for being so open and honest," Natasha says back
to Robbie. "I have nothing further."
"You may step down, Mr. Calimo," Franklin instructs him. Robbie
nods back to the Judge before he makes his way back to his seat.
"As we have one more witness that both parties requested speak, I
will do the question asking for her," Franklin announces to everyone
as Jeff and Robbie both look at their lawyer's. "Paige Claus, please
Robbie and Jeff both turn around to Paige, who puts some hair behind her
ear as she stands up and slowly starts to walk to the stand.
Scene Four - Chris' Townhouse
"I hope that this is important," Chris tells Trenyce as she
moves into the living room of his townhouse, knowing that she had to see
him. "I have a lot of work to do today."
Trenyce shuts her eyes for a moment and knows that she has to be honest
with Chris about what Jemma told her about their real child still being
out there. She doesn't know why she is so nervous about telling him about
the baby but she can feel her heart racing inside her chest.
"I know you do," she replies to him. "I do too so I will
try to make this quick."
"We could have met at the Pampa Grill and had lunch," he says
as he comes up behind her. "I must admit, why you wanted to meet
me at my place alone has my mind racing with possibilities."
Trenyce turns around and faces him, unable to not smile at his blatant
attempt to flirt with her. "It's not what you're thinking."
Chris smiles back to her. "Then, please, enlighten me. What is this
"You know my Aunt Jemma is in town, don't you?" she asks him
as he nods his head as he recalls seeing Jemma at the Pampa Grill. "Well,
you know, she's always had this way of showing me and telling me things
that I never saw before. And I can't believe that I never saw this before."
Chris arches his eyebrow. "I still have no idea what you're talking
"I'm talking about Andrew," Trenyce replies to him. "I
mean, I'm not talking about Andrew but
"Did Jemma give you another idea on how we can get Andrew back?"
Chris asks her, still confused about what Trenyce is trying to tell him.
Trenyce shakes her head. "No, just the opposite. She told me that
I should give up on Andrew," she reveals as Chris' eyes open wider
in surprise. "She told me that I should start to focus on finding
our real child."
Chris puts his hands over his mouth for a moment. "I never thought
of it either," she continues to tell him. "But, because there
was a baby switch, it means that we have a child out there somewhere,
Chris. That's what Jemma told me; she told me to start trying to find
our real child."
Scene Five - The Cascade Apartments, Apartment 204; Savannah &
Savannah watches Andrew play with some of his toys on the floor. The sight
causes her to get a smile on her face as she loves seeing her son grow.
It wasn't too long ago that she had no idea where her son was or who he
was; now that she has Andrew back, she loves that they are finally getting
the chance to be a mother and son.
"Mommy look," Andrew says as he shows her the train track that
he has built with his wooden train set.
The fact that Andrew associates Savannah has his mother is another cause
for her to smile. "Wow, baby, you did a really good job."
Savannah watches him play with the train as she finds her mind suddenly
start to wonder. She recalls how a few weeks earlier, Trenyce approached
her and apologized to Savannah for her role in Chris' attempt to marry
Savannah so they could get Andrew away from her. While Frederick has always
been skeptical of Chris and Trenyce, Savannah really felt like Trenyce
was being sincere with the apology. Then, Savannah decided to extend an
olive branch to Trenyce but she overheard Trenyce talking about maybe
finding her real child out there. At the time, hearing Trenyce upset Savannah.
But now that she's had time to think about it, Savannah realizes that
it is the best possible thing that could happen.
"If she finds her real child," Savannah whispers to herself.
"Maybe she will finally leave Andrew alone to be with me. Her and
Chris both will have something else to focus on. And I can start to move
on with my life. My beautiful life with Andrew," she smiles to herself
as she continues to watch Andrew play with his trains.
Scene Six - Twin Peaks Court House
"Please state your name for the record," Judge Franklin Ross
tells Paige, who has just been sworn into the trial between Robbie and
"Paige Claus," she replies nervously into the microphone. She
can feel her hands tremble as she has never been in court before.
"And, how are you related to both Mr. Calimo and Mr. Claus?"
Franklin next asks her.
Paige clears her throat as she looks over at Robbie and then Jeff. "For
so many years, I thought Robbie was my father," she says, her voice
still cracking a little. "But then it was revealed that Jeff was
my father. I've gotten used to Jeff as my Dad but I guess I feel like
I have two father's."
Franklin nods back to her. "I see, this entire trial must be pretty
upsetting to you then."
Paige looks up at him and nods her head, trying to smile back to him.
"You have no idea," she replies to him. "I hate all of
this fighting that has happened since my Mom died. It's bad enough I lost
my Mom, now I have to deal with my Dad's fighting with each other all
"If you were in power, how would you see the ending of this trial?"
Franklin asks her next.
Paige sighs and looks back at the Judge before she looks over at Robbie
and Jeff. "Honestly? I wish everything could go back to normal, the
way it was before my Mom died," she says as she gets tears in her
eyes. "I just want my Mom back. I just want everything to be the
way it used to be. We were all so happy
I hate the fighting. I just
want it to stop."
"You're a very brave young woman," Franklin replies to her as
he passes her a tissue so Paige can wipe her eyes. "And I only hope
the two men in your life are listening to what you're saying because I
think you're absolutely right."
Scene Seven - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawn's Home
Adam moves to the bar in the living room of his house and quickly pours
himself rum. He quickly takes a drink of it, trying to calm his racing
mind. He is thinking about so many different things these days, he finds
himself overwhelmed with it all. He knows that Helen is probably still
blaming him for the death of Reg, even though her father was one that
had a problem with him. He also is thinking about Shane and Natasha; Shane
knows that something is off with his wife but Adam can't give his friend
an honest piece of advice because he knows that Natasha is off because
she miscarried a baby; Adam's baby from their affair last fall. He turns
and looks at the staircase where Natasha fell and he shuts his eyes. He
too is still grieving the death of his unborn baby. He opens his eyes
when he sees Barbara and Helen coming down the stairs, in a conversation
with each other.
He turns around, not really wanting to face his wife or his mother in
law right now. He just wanted to relax and try to take his mind off things.
"Isn't it a bit early to have a drink?" Barbara asks Adam as
she and Helen enter the living room.
Adam finishes the rum in his glass before he sets it down and pours himself
another. "I guess it is, depends who you're asking."
Barbara rolls her eyes and looks over at Helen. "Adam? Is something
wrong? It's not like you to have a drink this early in the day,"
Helen says to her husband, as she moves up behind him.
"Oh this is just great," Adam spits back to her as he turns
around to face his wife. "You're going to take your Mother's side,
as usual, and I'm going to be made the bad guy because I've had a rough
morning and I'm having a fucking drink. That's just great, Helen."
Helen is taken aback by Adam's outburst and she finds herself getting
tears in her eyes.
"How dare you speak to her like that," Barbara comes to Helen's
defense. "This woman is your wife. Have you no respect? Wait, don't
answer that. I know exactly how much respect you have for her."
Helen shakes her head. "I can't handle this fighting today,"
she says before she rushes out of the room, tears rushing down her face.
She is already on edge because of Dawn's hostility towards her and Adam,
she can't cope with Adam's bad mood today.
Adam looks back at Barbara with intent. "Are you happy now?"
he asks her.
Barbara glares back at him before she moves closer to him and grabs the
drink from his hand. She moves over to the bar and pours it down the sink.
"I wasn't done with that!" he says to her as he raises his voice.
"I think you and I need to get something straight," Barbara
tells him as she turns around and faces Adam. "You see, Adam, I've
been keeping my lips quiet but I don't know how much longer I will be
able to do so."
Adam shakes his head. "I don't have time for this."
"You better make time," she says to him as he turns around.
"Because, I know your secret, Adam. I know what you did with that
Adam freezes and turns around to face her. "Ah, I see I have your
"You don't know what you're talking about," Adam replies to
her, trying to hide his fear of what Barbara may actually now.. "Natasha
and I are just friends. Helen is friends with her too."
Barbara nods back to him. "Well, from what I overheard the other
night there's a lot more going on between the two of you than just friendship."
Adam gulps and then he runs his hands through his hair. "I don't
know what you think you know but you're wrong," he says to Barbara.
Scene Eight - Twin Peaks General Hospital; Shane's Office
Shane sits at his desk looking at a file despite his mind being on something
else. He knows what he has set into motion today; he just hopes that this
will be the end of the mystery as to what has been going on with Natasha.
He needs to know why she has been shutting him and Jacob out since she
fell down the stairs at the Black house and he finally thinks he knows
a way to get the truth. After he saw Dawn and Natasha in a heated conversation,
he realized that Dawn could be the way to get to the truth. He only hopes
the young woman will be honest with him.
He looks up when he hears a knock on his office door. Dawn moves into
the office, wearing her candy stripper outfit. "I heard that you
wanted to see me?" she asks him as she stands in the doorway.
Shane nods and looks back to her. "That's right, please come in and
close the door."
"Have I done something wrong?" Dawn asks him as she moves closer
to the desk.
"I'm just hoping you can help me with something," Shane replies
to her. "I need to know about the night Natasha fell down the stairs.
I know that you were at your house when it happened."
Dawn gulps and then quickly shakes her head. "I don't understand.
I don't think there's anything more that I can say that I haven't already
told the police."
"Natasha hasn't been the same since she fell," Shane tells her.
"And I need to know why. There has to be something that you can tell
"I'm sorry Dr. Glubbs," Dawn lies to him, as she tries to hide
her trembling hands. "I can't help you. I don't know anything."
"Then why did I see you and Natasha on the pier having an argument?"
Again, Dawn gulps before she turns away from him. She shuts her eyes for
a moment and tries to think of something. "I think you misunderstood,"
Dawn says before she looks back at him. "Natasha and I just ran into
each other, literally. We were on jogs and we almost collided. There's
nothing more than I can tell you."
Shane nods back to her and gives her a little smile. "Well, thank
you for being honest with me Dawn. I appreciate it."
Dawn uneasily nods back to him. "Of course," she says back to
him, suddenly relieved that he isn't going to continue to press the issue.
"If I think of anything else, I'll let you know."
Scene Ten - Twin Peaks Court House
"All rise, the honourable Judge Franklin Ross presides," the
bailiff announces as Jeff, Josh, Robbie, Natasha and Paige all stand up
and the Judge emerges from his chambers and returns to his seat.
"You may be seated," he tells everyone. "This was a complicated
case to say the least," he continues to say. "But I have made
my decision about the estate of Leah Robertson
Next on One Day at a Time
