"Girls just Wanna have Fun"
On a hot summer Tuesday Morning at the Hansen's house:
Syd: Hey Joanie.....
Syd: Do you remember when I went to Chicago and meant Elizabeth Corday?
Joanie: Of course, How could I forget that is all you talked about!
Emily walks in with her curly brown hair in a mess.
Syd: hey honey
Joanie: Well it is about time! You look like Syd when she was your age!
Emily: Hi Syd and Joanie. I do?
Syd: Yeah. You have Joanie's mouth and my looks. Cool.
Joanie: Elena left about an hour ago
Emily: Where did she go?
Joanie: She went to the mall for the day and won't be home till dinner.
Emily: Without me?
Joanie: She said she had to buy a present for someone's birthday that is
coming up soon!
Emily: Oh, yeah mine
Syd: Not just yours kiddo, Elena's too
Emily: But I was born first!
Joanie: That is what you always say.
Emily: Joanie, what are you doing today?
Joanie: Burt and I are going on a romantic picnic ALONE!
Syd and Emily: Oooohhhhhh!
Joanie: Oh, stop it! Syd when was your last date?
Syd: A couple of weeks ago.
Emily: Well, I went last night to the movies with Cory.
Emily was talking about this really hot guy Cory that she has been seeing
Joanie: Did he kiss you?
Syd: Joanie!.................... Well, did he Emily?
Emily: um um... Yes!
Syd and Joanie give her a hug
Syd and Joanie: Go Emily!
Joanie: Give me all of the details!
Syd: Hey Emily are you doing anything today?
Emily: Nope, except renewing my license as a couch potato!
Syd: Why don't you come with me to the clinic? You can be a potato at the
desk and answer phones.
Joanie: Don't forget Syd, Emily has gymnastics from 7-9 p.m. and Elena has
soccer from 7-9:30 p.m. tonight.
Syd: I'll bring Emily and you take Elena. Make sure nothing happens, We
don't need anymore accidents.
Joanie: I'll take Hannah with me, because Burt has a meeting tonight so I'm
Syd: Well, you two talk about Cory, I'm going to take a shower.
Syd: Emily, we have to leave in about an hour and a half
Joanie: So how was it?
Emily and Joanie talk and talk about Cory.
In the bathroom:
Lynda: So, Syd do you remember your first kiss?
Syd: Oh, Mother you scared me!
Lynda: Do you remember your first kiss with...
Syd: Yup, David
Syd: I remember like it happened yesterday
Syd: You don't think Emily is too young?
Lynda: Of course not!
Lynda: You have been raising these girls perfectly!
Syd: What about Joanie, and Dad, and Robbie...
Lynda: But Syd, these girls love you more than anything else!
Syd: They do?
Lynda: Did you see how Emily said "sure!" when you asked her to come to work
Syd: Yeah, you're right!
Lynda: Of course!
Lynda: Now you give Emily the greatest time in her life at the clinic today!
Lynda: This will all come in handy one day with these girls...
But it was too late. Lynda was gone now. Syd goes to her room to get changed
still with that puzzled look on her face.
Emily: Syd, can I come in?
Syd: What's up?
Emily sits down on Syd's bed.
Emily: You don't think it was wrong that Cory kissed me?
Syd: Of course not. You're a growing girl and need to experience those kinds
of things. Just don't take it too far, I don't want to be delivering your or
Elena's baby until way later!
Emily: I know it won't be a while for me, but Elena....
Emily: I'm just joking Syd, relax!!!
Syd: Ok, you were giving me heart palpitations there for a second.
Emily: Do you remember your first kiss?
Syd: Of course. It was at the front door of this house.
Syd: Yup, It was a guy named David that had a huge crush on and he was
walking me to the door. He leaned over and I leaned over and he kissed me on
Syd: I have a question to ask you?
Syd: Do you think of me as your mother who you can talk too...
Emily: Of course!
Emily: Is that all right?
Syd: Yes! I was just wondering.
Emily walks over to Syd and gives her a hug
Emily: I love you Syd
Syd: I love you too
Syd: Come on Emily get dressed so we can go to work.
Emily: I'll be ready in a second.
Emily runs to her room to get dressed.
Syd sits on her bed a minute to think about what just happened.
Lynda: See what did I tell you? The girls love you!
Syd: Thanks Mom! But I've had enough advice from you today.
Lynda: Just remember who I am young lady.
Syd: What? But it was too late. Lynda was gone.
Syd: I'm in my room!
Emily: Are we going soon?
Syd: Yeah, did you eat breakfast?
Emily: Yup, while you were in the shower
Syd: Is Joanie here?
Emily: No, she left to do some errands with Hannah.
Syd: Well, make sure everything is locked up.
Emily: Where is your Dad?
Syd: Oh, he left for a dog conference early this morning.
Syd: Come on Kiddo, before were late!
Emily and Syd leave for the clinic
At the clinic:
Izzy: Hey Doctor Hansen
Syd: Hi Izzy
Syd: Look who I brought today
Izzy: Is it Emily or Elena?
Izzy: I'll get your names one day.
Syd: Izzy, did you find another doctor?
Emily: Another doctor?
Syd: Yeah, I need another doctor to help out with the clinic during the
summer since I'll be with you and Elena and vacation and everything.
Emily: What about Elizabeth?
Syd: Elizabeth Corday?
Emily: That was all who you talked about when you came back from Chicago.
What about her for the another doctor?
Izzy: That is a great idea!
Syd: That is wonderful!
Syd: Let me go call her now. She gave me her home phone.
Syd: Hi Elizabeth
Syd: Yes, this is Syd Hansen
Elizabeth: How are you doing?
Syd: great, and how about you?
Elizabeth: wonderful, but I need a vacation from the ER!
Syd: Well, I think I might have a solution. Would you be interested in
coming to Providence to work at my clinic for the summer? I need some help
since I will be taking some time off.
Syd: Great, will it be all right with your boss?
Elizabeth: Well, I have to stop at the hospital today to pick up something
so I'll ask Kerry, I already can get a fill in!
Syd: Great! Call me back soon!
Emily: What did she day?
Syd: Sure. As long as it was all right with her boss!
Emily: Great, I want to meet her!
Syd: Well, do you want to help answer the phones today since you love to
talk on the phone.
Syd takes Emily to the desk to set her up.
After about an hour, the phone rings for the millionth time.
Emily: Good Morning, Dr. Sydney Hansen's clinic, Emily speaking.
Elizabeth: Hi, I'm Elizabeth Corday, you must be one of the twins. When Syd
was here she talked about you and Elena a lot.
Emily: Yup, would you like me to get Syd?
Elizabeth: Yes, please.
Emily: Hold on
Emily: Syd, Dr. Elizabeth Corday is on the phone.
Syd: She is?
Syd: Hello, Dr. Hansen
Elizabeth: Hi Syd
Syd: Lizzy, can you come?
Elizabeth: Yes, I can be in Providence on Thursday afternoon. Could you pick

Syd: Thank you very much!
Elizabeth: No, thank you!
Emily: Is she coming?
Syd: Yes, on Thursday and I told her you, Elena, and me were going to pick
her up and she is staying at our house!
Elena pops into the clinic to show Syd what she got Emily.
Elena: Hey Izzy, is Syd around??? I need to talk to her for a second.

her you're here.

Syd: Yeah that seems fine. Well you should get back to your run, now that I
let you go!!!!
Elena: About the run......I'm gonna go home and maybe take a nap.......I've
been really tired lately. Not to mention a bad tummy ache.
Syd: Do you want me to see if you're sick or something??

Elena: NO thank you very much!!!!!! Well I have places to be...c-ya at

Emily: What's up with her??
Syd: I don't know......she must have had a bad day shopping. She'll perk up
later. Otherwise she's got a BAD case of PMS!!!
Both of the girls laugh
Emily: I have been really tired too.
Syd: I've noticed. You don't have yours at least Elena's sure acting like
it...and everything happens to you guys in pairs......
Emily: No, it's not what you're thinking
Emily: I feel really hot and tired.
Syd puts her lips to Emily's forehead
Syd: You do feel warm.
Syd: Izzy, can you come here.
Izzy: What is it Dr. Hansen?
Syd: Emily, doesn't feel too good. Do we have any rooms open.
Izzy: Yes, Take her to exam room two.
Emily and Syd walk to the room.
Syd: Ok, Emily I'm just going to exam your body.
Syd examines Emily.
Syd: Well, Emily it looks like you might be starting the summer flu.
Emily: But, I have gymnastics tonight.
Syd: Don't worry. I'll take care of you tonight.
Syd: Izzy, can you come here for a sec
Izzy: What is it Dr. Hansen
Syd: Emily, looks like she has the summer flu. It is a mild case so
antibiotics should clear it up .
Emily: So does that mean that I can't go to class?
Syd: Sorry Emily. It should be cleared up by the time Elizabeth comes.
Syd: It's all right. I'm here to take care of you. Just take it easy tonight
and Wednesday and then you can have fun on Thursday.
Now it is about 3:00 p.m.
Izzy: Dr. Hansen, why don't you take Emily home and get her into bed. It
isn't too busy, take the rest of the afternoon off.
Syd: That's great Izzy, thanks
Syd goes into her office to get her purse and bag.
Izzy: Hope you feel better Emily
Emily: Thanks Izzy
Syd and Emily get into the car. They soon arrive at home.
Joanie: Syd? Emily? What are you doing home?
Syd: Emily has the summer flu.
Joanie: Oh, poor Emily.
Joanie comes over and gives Emily a hug.
Syd: Come on Joanie lets get Emily into bed.
The girls get Emily into bed with a book and let her rest.
Syd and Joanie are in the kitchen having some iced tea.
Syd: Elizabeth is coming on Thursday!
Syd: She is going to help out at the clinic. She is staying here.
Joanie: Cool, I can't wait.
The phone rings.
Joanie: Syd that was the pharmacy. They said Emily's prescription is ready.
Syd: Great! I'll go pick it up.
The rest of the day flies by and Wednesday too. Soon Thursday arrives and
Joanie, Syd, Emily, and Elena are really excited.
Syd: Good morning kiddo
Joanie: So Emily, you're finally up.
Emily: good morning!
Syd: Well you're so happy this morning. How are you feeling?
Emily: Great. Guess who comes today?
Syd: Joanie, are you coming to the airport?
Joanie: Of course, but I have to get a babysitter because the girls are
coming with us.
Joanie goes and calls looking for a babysitter.
Syd: You are really excited!
Emily: I can't wait!
Syd: Neither can I!
Emily: She is British right?
Syd: Yes, I love her voice.
Emily: How much did you talk about us?
Syd: A lot!
Syd: I guess I got a little homesick and started thinking about you, Elena,
Hannah, and Joanie.
Emily: I have an idea!
Syd: What is it?
Emily: You know how your Dad is on that conference till tomorrow and Robbie
is working at O'Neils and Elizabeth is our guest and...
Emily: We could have a girl's...
Syd: Night out!
Syd: That is great Emily!
Syd: Elizabeth would love that!
Emily: I can't wait! Don't you have to work today?
Syd: Nope, I took the day off.
Emily: Wow! I can't wait to tell Elena!
Syd: Let's go tell her now!
Emily: But she is still asleep...
Emily: Oh, I know what you're gonna do.
Emily and Syd quietly creep up the staircase to the girl's room and open the
Syd: On the count of three we jump on her bed and wake her up!
Syd: One, two, three!
Syd and Emily: Elena wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Elena: What? What the heck?
Syd: We just had to do that!
Elena: Thanks Emily for giving Syd that idea!
Emily: It wasn't my idea!
Elena throws a pillow at Syd and the girls start a pillow fight. Meanwhile
Joanie walks in on the girls and she has a big smile on her face.
Joanie: I always wanted to do this!
Joanie throws a pillow at Syd's head. The girls are on the floor laughing.
Emily: Can we tell them our idea?
Syd: Sure, Emily and I thought of a great idea, a girl's night out!
Syd: We can go to the clinic first so I can show Elizabeth around and then
if you want instead of going to the clinic maybe Joanie can take you to the
pool if she wants too...
Emily and Elena: Please Joanie, Please!
Emily and Elena: Yes!
Syd: So we'll go pick up Elizabeth at the airport at 11, take her out to
lunch, then drop you girls off at the pool, then I'll show Elizabeth the
clinic, and then come back and pick you girls up, and then came back to hang
Emily: It is 10:00, we have to leave soon!
Syd: Emily and Elena you took showers last night, and Joanie you just took
one, so that leaves me!
Syd: I'll take a quick shower and then you guys be ready to go. Pack all
your swimming stuff in the beach bag in my room.
Joanie; Your swimming suits are by the dryer.
Syd: I'm going in my shower.
Joanie: Ok, girls what bathing suit should I wear?
The twins and Joanie go to Joanie's room to see her bathing suits and Syd
goes to the bathroom to take her shower.
Joanie: OK there's this one, but it makes my butt look big...this one's
OK,but this one is better, girls I can't pick one out!!!
Elena: What about this one??
Emily: That one looks good.
Joanie: Ok this one it is.
Syd comes in and asks to talk to Elena in her room.
Elena: Yeah, Syd....what's up???
Syd: I'm kinda worried about you lately.....you've been sleeping in a lot
lately. Is everything ok upstairs???
Elena: Well, yeah, I think so...what do you mean???
Syd: First of all you haven't been eating as much and you sleep all thetime.
You get upset really easily and I was only wondering if I could help if
there was a problem. You know I'm always here for you and if there's a
problem...I'm in a good position to help.
Elena: Well, if there was you'd know about it. I have to get ready.
Syd is a little concerned about her behavior. She decides to keep an eye on
her. Syd finishes getting ready and the girls and Joanie head to the
Syd: Hi Elizabeth!!!
Elizabeth: This must be Joanie, and these are the girls right??? They're so
Elena: I'm Elena, and this is Emily. Good luck trying to not mix us up.
Elizabeth: I'll try! But it will take a while. What are we doing after this?
Emily: First were taking you out for lunch and then Elena, Joanie and I are
going to the pool and Syd is going to show you around the clinic. Then at
dinner we're going to meet at the house and head out for a veg out, pig out,
and have fun!!!
Elizabeth: That sounds like a lot of fun!! I never got to do those as a
child...my mother was too strict.
Syd: Well, we better get over to the clinic and get Elizabeth's things.
We'll talk to you later and Elena think about what I said....you have 3
doctors in the house now!!!!
Joanie: Let's first go eat lunch!
Syd: I know a great restaurant!
Emily: What was that all about???
Elena: I'm not sure.....Syd is really excited about having her here.
Emily: Elena, are you really all right? You haven't been yourself lately.
Elena: Why does everyone keep asking me that? I'm fine. If there were
something wrong I'd tell you or Syd!
Emily: Ok, take a chill pill
Joanie: Is everything all right girls?
Emily: Yeah, we were just talking
Joanie: (unsure) ok
The girls arrive at the restaurant
Elizabeth: This is wonderful!
Emily: Can we get an appetizer?
Syd: I suppose Emily!
The girls order and wait for their food. Their food finally arrives.
Joanie: This looks great.
Emily: I'll be right back, I have to use the bathroom.
Syd: Me too. Wait for me Emily
Syd and Emily go to the restroom.
Syd: Emily, I have to ask you a question.
Emily: Oh, no is this gonna be a talk about something...
Syd: No, I think we got all of those adolescent talks in.
Emily: Good, so what is it
Syd: Something is bothering your sister
Emily: I know
Syd: And it isn't a big case of PMS!
Emily: I asked her what's wrong, but she didn't answer me
Syd: Same here
Emily: I don't know what it is.
Syd: I was hoping she would tell you because you guys are so close. She
wasn't even that excited about Elizabeth.
Emily: I sure was
Syd: I know. Maybe you two will get to know each other well.
Emily: I hope so
Elizabeth: Is everything all right?
Emily: Yeah, Syd and I were just having a girl talk.
Elizabeth: Oh, I'll see you at the table Syd: Let's keep this between you
and me. Ok?
Emily: Sure Syd
Syd: Thanks Emily, I knew I could count on you
Syd: I'll meet you at the table in a minute
Lynda: So, what's up with Elena
Syd: I don't know
Syd: I treat them as if they were my daughters, which they practically are
and Emily responds, but Elena is going through a phase of some sort and it
can't be reached
Lynda: I know. I saw you asked Emily. She'll think of something. She is just
like you. Never gives up.
Syd: Thanks Mom, I knew you'd come around
Syd walks back to the table and Elena gives her a look
Syd: ok, let's go
The girls hop in the car and drive off to the pool.
Emily is the last to hop out of the car.
Syd: Remember what I said in the bathroom Emily.
Emily: I know, I'll keep my eyes open
Elizabeth: Not for too long, because the chlorine really irritates your
Syd and Emily laugh
Elizabeth: What's so funny?
Syd: I'll tell you on the way.
Emily: Bye Syd and Elizabeth
Syd: Have a great time!
Syd and Elizabeth drive off
Elizabeth: One of the twins, not the one that we just talked too, Emily, but
Elena. What is the matter with her?
Syd: I've been thinking the same thing and so has Emily.
Elizabeth: How's Emily feeling?
Syd: Well, she has the summer flu, but got over it quickly. I have been
watching her carefully.
Elizabeth: This age is the worst!
Syd: I know and I have it double.
Elizabeth: Yes, you told me about their parents. I'm sorry to hear about
Syd: Thanks for the support.
Syd: Well, we're here!
Elizabeth: I can't wait to see it!
Syd shows Elizabeth the clinic and introduces her to everyone. Syd says it
is time to go pick up the girls at the pool.
Syd: Let's go Lizzy.
The two women hop into the car and drive off.
Elena: I'm going to get a coke at the stand, I'll be right back.
Joanie: Hey Emily just between me and you do you think Elena is hiding
something or something is wrong with her?
Emily: Syd and I are thinking the same thing.
Joanie: Here comes Elena.
Elena: I just saw Syd's car pull up, let's go.
Emily: ok, I can't wait till tonight
Joanie: me too! Elena: let's go

Emily: Yeah, it was great! I can do an awesome flip of the diving board
complete with a twist
Elizabeth: And you Elena?
Elena: It was okay
Joanie: Yeah, you should have seen Elena's dives, they were awesome.
Syd: I can't wait to see them!
The girls arrive at the Hansen's house.
Syd: Let's get into some pj's and take our showers!
Emily and Joanie take Elizabeth to the living room where Hannah is with her
babysitter so Joanie can pay her. Syd is in her room putting on her pj's.
Elena walks past her room.
Syd: Elena, can you come here. I want to talk to you.
Elena: I know what you're gonna say.
Syd: What is the matter?
Elena: You really want to know?
Syd: YesElena: (tears rolling down her face) This is the week that my
parents died. It has been a year.
Syd: (with her hand over her mouth) Oh my gosh! I almost forgot! I'm so
sorry! This explains your behavior.
Elena: I'm sorry! This put a lot of pressure on me.
Syd: Come here honey.Syd gives Elena a hug and holds her in her arms, hoping
to dry the tears from her eyes.
Emily, Joanie, Hannah, and Elizabeth appear in the doorway.
Elizabeth: What's the matter?
Emily: I know. I figured it out. It has been one year since our parents
died. This was the week of the accident. (tears start rolling down Emily's
