You will be able to see your sister

in a moment.

Thank you.

Hi, I'm here to see Mr. Drake.

I'm Samantha Winston.

- Samantha Winston?

- Yes.

Please have a seat.

I'll see if he's still seeing people.

Mrs. Johansen, you can go in now.

Ms. Winston.

Ms. Winston!

- Hi.

- Mr Drake will see you now if you'll follow me.

- Okay.

I can't believe my eyes.

Samantha Winston.


Well, come in. Sit down. Please.

I can't believe you'd remembered me.

- Samantha, how are you?

- I'm fine.

- Where're you staying?

- Motel.

- Mm..huh.

You know, I tried to reach you

over the years - few times.

But they told me that you moved

to Minnesota with your aunt.


So what are you doing here?

- I need a job, Mr. Drake.

- A job?

- Harriet?

- Yes.

Would you please set up a new desk

for Ms. Winston outside my office.

I'm gonna put her in charge of handling new client accounts.

- Yes.

- Thank you.

- Can you start tomorrow?

- Yeah. Thank you.

Okay, Harriet will show you how to do the job.

It's really straight forward.

There's a lot of paperwork.

That way you don't get involved with the other aspects

of this business.

I don't mean to sound morbid, but we're doing really well.

We operate 31 facilities up and down the east coast.

- It's great, Mr. Drake.

- Actually, I'm not Mr. Drake. That was my father.

I'm Lucas. You call me Lucas, okay?

Mams, I'll get Jack for this.



Who are you?

What do you want?

Is it ...

Is Samantha?


Dear God, Sammy, is that you?

Sweetie, I've looked for you.

I just... I'm sorry.

I just... I searched for you after

Patricia died...

- Why didn't you find me?

- Well, you were eight...

- Eight and a half.

And halfway across the country.

You were with a family and...

better than a drunk like me.

So sweetie, please, let's go inside.

We can't talk out here.


Come on in, I've got milk and cookies.

Here, come on and sit down.

Feel free to walk around, if you want. Look at the house.

If you want to look at those pictures

or go upstairs... yeah.

They're really beautiful pictures.

Your ma was a beautiful woman.

I'm sorry, she's gone.

She loved you very much.

Ah. Here we go. Yeah.

Go ahead.



Here. Sit down, sit down. Eat.

Your mama would kill me if I didn't feed

you. Remember how worried she used to get?


We have so much to talk about.

I wish you could stay, Sammy.

I don't drink anymore.

I try to do good things

for people.

I'd love to make it up to you,

if you'll let me.

- How is your health?

- Oh, I'm clean.

I haven't had a drink for years,

I don't even want to smell the stuff.

What about you?

Where have you been all this time?

I stayed with a few foster families,

after Aunt Patricia died.

They didn't like me very much,

so that didn't work out.

When I was 16, I ran.

I'm here now.

- I'm tired.

- Well, you know. Let me show you your room.

Your room, sweetheart,

just as you left it.

- It's getting late, I'm gonna have to go.

- You're going? So soon?

- I just wanted to see the old house. I'm not staying here.

- Maybe you could stay for a cup of tea?


- You like oranges, huh?

- Not really.

Hey, I wonder... you know. Maybe I could make you some eggs?

I've got this... this new pot. I just got.

Just like the ones on TV.


Guess what I want to say is I really want you to stay.

Sammy, even if it's just for a couple of days.

I don't want any food.

I guess I'll stay for a couple of days.

Okay. I... er... you know I have some clean pajamas for you, if you want.

I left my stuff at the motel,
