  • The triangle from Ms. Hayes’ point of view. On the heels of a very important question from Mr. Crawford, Maddie tries to figure out a troubling mystery. Oh yeah, and solve a case too. ;)

    • (The detectives walk out of the bowling alley. It's just now sunrise.) Maddie: Well, sun's up. David: I did what I could. Couldn't stop it, though. Want to get something to eat? Maddie: What, the way I'm dressed? David: I think you look great. Maddie: I feel great. And you want to know something dumb, I had a great time. David: Yeah. Me too. Must be the lack of sleep. Maddie: That's what I should do, sleep. Go home, get in bed and-- (Maddie stops abruptly, and looks worried. David keeps going. Then he notices.) David: She was here just a minute ago? (Pause; turns to face her) Maddie? Maddie: Sam... (Cut to interior of Maddie's room at home. Sam wakes up. Alone.) Sam: Maddie?

    • (On the way back from the McLafferty's house. David talks about the infidelity in the case.) David: Talk around it all you want, it’s cut-and-dried, bottom line, everyday betrayal. Maddie: Since when are you so judgemental about sleeping around?

    • (In the agency office. Sam catches up with David about yesterday's fistfight with a stranger at the gas station.) Sam: I’m surprised you were able to see anything, much less land a punch. David: Yeah, well, I did manage to get in a few.

    • David (to Maddie): It’s about time we see that Herbert Viola is promoted to full-fledged Blue Moon flatfoot. He’s been doing the work of three short men in this office.

    • (At David's apartment. He brings out a storage trunk so he and Maddie have something to sit on.) David: So! Maddie: So. David: Well, this is great! Glad you stopped by, I've been meaning to have you over. Can I get you something? You sure? Some cheese, peanut butter? Maddie: David, what are we going to do? David: I don't know. There's always the bedroom. (She stares.) It was a joke, it was a joke. Bad joke. Ah, let me take your coat. Maddie: No thanks. I snuck out. I don't have anything on under here except a nightgown. Nice, huh? David (laughing): Sneakers for sneakin'. I like that. (Now serious) You just left him there, huh? Maddie: He's perfect for me, you know? But you and me, we... we... (Starts crying, head in hands. After a moment, sits up and looks at David.) I can't believe you're going to sit there and let me go through this by myself! (David puts an arm around her shoulder. She leans into his chest.) David (very softly): It's okay. Maddie (sniffling): I hate you, David Addison. David: I know. I hate you too, Maddie Hayes. I've always hated you. (She leans back. They look at each other, and then-- a slow, sweet kiss.) David: ...You look awful. Maddie: Yeah, well, you smell awful. (Looks at her hands, touches her face. From all the crying, her makeup is a mess by now.) This is great! David: I'll get you some tissues. I know I have some tissues here. (Steps out for a minute.) Maddie: In my whole life, every major event since I was thirteen, you could count on me to cry, count on my mascara to run. Probably go to my grave with running... mascara... David (returning): I was wrong. I didn't have any tissues. Here. (Hands her a bunch of toilet paper) (Maddie blows her nose.) Maddie: David, Mrs. McLafferty, when they carried her out, she looked beautiful, didn't she? David: Yeah, I guess so-- if you go for that sort of thing. Maddie: No, I mean we heard her crying a lot-- we heard her crying a lot. When they carried her out, she looked perfect. I mean, her makeup looked perfect. David: Yeah, so? Maddie: So, put some shoes on. (Runs towards the door.) David (to camera): Yeah, I know. I thought we were heading for something big too.
