Re-run on the web for the 1st time in nearly 7 1/2 years, episode #149 (original post date 9/27/04) is now posted:|
"You really did it, didn't you?" Reginald Callison asked with a sneer.
"Did what?" Burt Lamont looked at him and shook his head, unable to understand exactly what his cousin was getting at.
"You just waltzed into this town a nobody -- just some guy who picked up his downtrodden family and moved in to take care of a stable of horses." Reginald stood directly in front of Burt and stared at him. "Then, suddenly, you're a Callison -- Landon's son. And then you're wooing and romancing one of the heirs to the East Coast's largest textile companies. Now that you've married Janet, you're a member of two of the most prominent families in this town. You haven't just climbed the social ladder, you've run right up it!"
"How dare you try to insinuate that I'm using Janet! Besides, I'm every bit a part of the Callison family as you are. I'm a Callison by blood! You've seen the documentation! You've seen the reports and records that your own father's private detective found!"
"Documents and files and records can be altered and falsified to say whatever you want them to." Reginald moved closer to Burt, getting practically nose to nose with him. "I don't give a damn what those records say! You're not part of this family and you never will be!" He jabbed his finger into Burt's face to punctuate his point.
"Get out of my face!" Burt spat. "I don't have to prove a damn thing to you! Your father accepts me! Janet loves me! Those are the only things that matter."
"So," Reginald chuckled heartily with an air of amusement, "you've worked so hard to land yourself in a rather cushy spot, haven't you. How much will it take?"
"You heard me." Reginald's jaw tightened. "How much will it take? I'm prepared to phone the bank first thing in the morning. Exactly how much money will it take to send you packing out of this town and out of our lives for good?"
