Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital
"I don't know why it is taking so long," Rebecca tells Cory
as they are in a hospital room waiting for the pregnancy test results.
A part of Rebecca is scared to death about what the results will show
because she doesn't actually believe that she is pregnant. However, Melissa
has been telling her that she has everything under control so she is trying
to stay calm about this. So, she is trying to be positive about the situation.
Cory sighs and recalls how Robin showed up at the hospital the day of
the test. He knows that he has devastated his wife by having an affair
with her sister; he wishes he could take it back but he knows that he
can never do that. He just hopes that there isn't a baby involved because
that would really be the final straw for Robin.
"Do you want to sit down?" he asks her, knowing that if she
is pregnant, she shouldn't get too stressed out.
"Nah, I'm okay, thank you," she replies to him. "Thanks
for being here with me."
"I need to know the truth just as much as you do," he tells
her. "I couldn't be anywhere else today."
"Have you thought about what this means if I am pregnant?" she
asks him as she looks into his eyes.
Cory shakes his head and turns away from Rebecca. "All I know is
that it would devastate Robin terribly. A baby would be a miracle but
I don't want to hurt my wife anymore than I already have."
She comes up behind him and puts her hand on his shoulder. "It would
be a miracle," she whispers back to him.
"My only concern is Robin," he replies to her, ignoring her
gesture to reach out to him. "She just got out of a mental hospital,
I don't want her to have a relapse."
"You don't think that could happen, do you?" she asks him, suddenly
growing concerned about Robin.
Cory turns around to face her but before he can say anything else to her,
the door opens and Victoria enters the room holding Rebecca's file.
"Victoria," Cory says to her. "Do you have the results?"
"I do," Victoria replies back to them. "I have the pregnancy
results in this folder."
Scene Two - The Sugarbowl
"I was surprised to get your call, if I am honest with you,"
Donovan tells Lukas as they sit in the back booth across from each other.
Lukas takes a sip of his mocha and looks back into his former lover's
eyes. Lukas knows that he always got lost in Donovan's eyes; it's one
of his most attractive features. "I've seen Craig one and one a lot
more than I've seen you. I haven't really seen much of you since the elevator
"I know," Donovan agrees with him. "I've been trying to
give you your space so you can decide on what you'd like to do."
"I still have no idea," Lukas admits to him. "I know I've
said it before but I feel like I don't have the right to choose."
"You know what I think?" Donovan asks him back as Lukas arches
his eyebrow. "I think that nothing in your life will change until
you are truthful with everyone."
"You're talking about my father, aren't you?"
"I think he should know who you are," Donovan tells him. "You
have enough of a support system in your life Lukas that, even if he wasn't
accepting, you will be loved. You have Meggan, you have Craig and you
Lukas puts his head down for a moment. "Do you really mean that?"
"Of course I do," Donovan continues to tell him. "I will
always care about you Lukas. After everything we went through in Europe,
there's no way that I could not care about you."
Lukas looks up and grabs Donovan's hand. "You know I still love you,
Donovan smiles and nods back to him. "Of course I know that."
Scene Three - The Tower's, Floor One; Andy's Condo
"I appreciate your help with these plans for the benefit," Andy
tells Craig as they sit at Andy's table and are going over some of details
of the benefit that Andy is planning for Reese.
"Of course, I was happy to help," Craig replies to him.
"Between you and I going over these details and my sister helping
with the flowers, I think we will get this thing planned," Andy informs
him. "I thought of you because you helped plan the hospital gala
a couple of years ago."
"This seems far more personal than the hospital gala," Craig
tells his friend. "What made you decide to throw a fundraiser for
cancer in honor of Reese?"
Andy gulps for a moment before he looks back at Craig. "It was Lukas'
"Really?" Craig asks in surprise. "I didn't think that
this would be something Lukas would think of."
Andy chuckles a little. "I think he's mellowed the last few months.
I don't sense that he's the same spoiled kid he was when he arrived in
Craig quickly reflects on his relationship with Lukas and wonders if Andy
could be right. "I didn't realize you two had become so close."
"We are forming a friendship, yes," Andy informs him. "He's
a good guy. I think he just needs positive people in his life. And before
you ask, I do know about his decision that he has to make between you
Craig locks eyes with Andy. "Has he said anything to you at all about
Andy shrugs. "Nothing concrete, no," Andy admits to his friend.
"But if I can give you a piece of advice, go easy on him. He's going
through a lot and I think the bigger picture is with his Dad."
Craig nods back to him. "That makes sense. I'm just growing impatient."
"Just give him a little more time," Andy tells Craig. "He'll
get there, I am sure of it."
Scene Four - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawn's Home
"I can't believe you just said that to me," Helen tells Barbara
as she pours herself a cup of tea and looks back at her mother.
Barbara puts her hand on her hip and looks back at her daughter. "I'm
clearly stating the obvious. Adam doesn't live here right now, you're
not happy with him because of his cheating ways. Ending your marriage
seems like the logical next step."
"I thought that Catholics didn't believe in divorce?" Helen
asks her mother.
"Under normal circumstances but your husband broke any vow he made
to you when he slept with Natasha Calimo behind your back," Barbara
reminds her, as Helen takes a sip of her tea.
"You do not have to remind me," Helen says back to her.
Before Barbara can say anything else, the doorbell rings and Helen looks
at her mother. "I'll get it," she says moving past Barbara.
Helen opens the door and is surprised to see Adam standing there. "Adam,"
she says in surprise.
"It's weird for me too, ringing the doorbell to my own house,"
he says back to her. "Can I come in for a minute?"
"Sure," Helen tells him as he moves inside. "What's going
"I spoke to Dawn on the telephone," Adam reveals to her. "And
I wanted to tell you how it went."
"How is she?" Helen asks him. "I've tried to call her but
she isn't returning my calls."
"I didn't think she'd pick up, if I am honest with you," Adam
tells her. "I tried to convince her to come home. I told her that
it would be the first step in our family healing."
Helen moves a piece of her long bangs out of her eyes. "What did
she say? Is she coming home?"
Adam shakes his head. "She said no and asked me not to call her again."
Helen sighs. "I was worried she'd say something like that."
"At least she picked up the phone, baby steps?" Adam asks her
with a sly grin on his face.
"You're optimistic," she smiles back to him.
"How have you been?" he finds himself asking her.
okay," she replies to him, not wanting to fight
with him. "How have you been?"
"Not so bad," he tells her. "I happened to see you out
the other day."
"Really? I don't remember you coming to say hi to me?"
"Because I didn't," Adam reveals to her. "You were with
Chris Michaels. It looks like you were having a good time."
Helen suddenly realizes why Adam is mentioning this to her: he's jealous.
"Chris has been a good friend to me," she quickly tells him,
her tone getting defensive.
"I wasn't suggesting anything," Adam starts to plead.
"Really? I'm not the cheater in this relationship Adam," Helen
snaps at him, not liking what he is suggesting. "I think it's time
you go. Thank you for telling me about Dawn."
Adam turns and leaves and wonders if anything will help rebuild his relationship
with Helen now or his family for that matter.
Scene Five - The Glubbs House; Shane & Natasha's Home
"I can't believe I had to find out that you're being investigated
by reading the Sun," Natasha tells Shane as they stand in the living
room. Natasha had read an article about the pending hospital investigation
with how Shane discovered that Natasha was pregnant. Usually hospital
news wouldn't make the paper but when the investigation happens to the
Chief of Staff, it makes a headline. Natasha wishes that he would have
told her himself.
"I'm sorry," Shane tries to tell her. "It's not like we
have been on the best of terms lately. I didn't think you'd care, if I
"Of course I care!" Natasha protests to him. "You're my
husband, Shane. Even though you sent me divorce papers, I still love you.
I don't want this to happen to you."
"Thanks," he manages to say back to her. "I'm not sure
how it will turn out. Victoria seems to think that I may get suspended."
Natasha looks him in the eyes before she grabs his hand. "I hope
you know, no matter what happens, I am here to support you Shane. You
don't have to go through this alone."
Shane smiles back to her. "I really appreciate that, Nat. Thank you,
"Of course," Natasha replies to him before looking back at her
husband. "I've been thinking."
"Us and our marriage," she reveals to him. "I still love
you Shane and I don't want to get a divorce."
" he begins to say back to her.
"Just hear me out, okay?" Natasha replies to him. "I'm
not saying it will be easy but maybe if we get away for awhile we can
be alone together and talk and try to rebuild the trust and our marriage."
"I can't get away right now because of the investigation," he
"It doesn't have to be far, we could go to the Calimo cabin. Just
a short ways away. Don't answer me now, but think about it, okay?"
she tells him as she purses her lips together.
Scene Six - The Cemetery
Robin drops some roses down on Leah's gravesite and then looks at the
tombstone with her sister's name engraved on it as the grey skies above
threaten rain or snow.
"Sorry I haven't been around much," she says outloud to Leah.
"I was getting better after my breakdown after my baby died. I hate
that I was in the hospital when you
" she bites her lip before
she says that Leah is dead. "I miss you so much. I feel like I need
A tear falls down Robin's cheek as she thinks about the possibility that
Cory got Rebecca pregnant. She can't believe that Cory slept with her
sister of all women. She wishes that Leah was around because Leah always
gave her the best advice when things were going wrong in her life. Leah
would know the right thing to say to her to make feel better about the
"This thing with Cory and Rebecca," Robin continues to tell
her sister. "I have no idea what to do. If Rebecca is pregnant, our
relationship will never be the same. And if she's not, well, Cory still
slept with my sister. My marriage will never be the same."
Robin moves her hand to the tombstone. "I love you so much Leah.
I miss you every day. I hope wherever you are, you're okay and that you're
happy. Please, just send me the strength to get through this."
Scene Seven - Twin Peaks
"Please, don't keep us waiting," Rebecca says back to Victoria
as she awaits the news of the pregnancy test.
Victoria opens the folder and reads the notes before she looks back at
Cory and Rebecca. "You are pregnant, Rebecca. The test shows you
are carrying a child and are about four months along."
Cory's mouth opens in shock. "There has to be some kind of mistake,"
he manages to say.
"No," Victoria replies to him. "Our tests are 99.9% positive."
"But, I'm not showing. I had no signs," Rebecca tells her, as
she is surprised as well.
"Sometimes the body works in mysterious ways. You were still lightly
spotting, which can be normal in the first few months of pregnancy. And
not showing isn't a sign of pregnancy, sometimes women won't show until
5 or 6 months along. I'll leave you two alone now but I'm around if you
have any other questions," Victoria tells them before she leaves
Cory and Rebecca look at each other in a moment of silence. Finally, Rebecca
says something to Cory. "What now?"
