MacLEOD - It's a secret.
MacLEOD - I keep busy . . .
LISA - [beat; casual] With Mrs. MacLeod . . .
MacLEOD - There is no Mrs. MacLeod.
LISA - [lifts a cup from the sink, drops it back] Didn't think so. [beat] I'm not married either . . . [beat; awkward] It's been months since I've even gone out with anybody. [beat] You like Mexican food?
MacLEOD - [with a smile] Is this how you get people to sign contracts?
LISA - No . . . actually . . . I'm trying to ask you for a date. [beat] I've been working so damn hard, I almost forgot how it's supposed to happen . . .
MacLEOD - How what's supposed to happen?
[She slowly leans up, eyes closed, bringing her lips to his in a hesitant kiss. MacLeod responds, but lightly. Lisa breaks off reluctantly and looks at him, wondering if she blew it, made a mistake. MacLeod looks into her eyes.]
MacLEOD - I wouldn't worry . . .
LISA - About what?
MacLEOD - [smiles] You didn't forget.
LISA - I know, you're not interested.
MacLEOD - I didn't say that. I just think some things are worth waiting for.
LISA - You mean you want to get to know me first?
MacLEOD - [smiles] Too old fashioned for you?
LISA - No. [beat, smiles] I kinda like it.
MacLEOD - You like being a hero to the kids, don't you. Having them look up to you.
JIMMY - It's not just about me, or the Tong. [beat] I make it, they know they can, too.
MacLEOD - Make it as what, Jimmy? A guy looking over his shoulder, wondering when the truth will come out? Because it always does.
