As The World Turns Best Lines Monday 7/7/08

Liberty: Parker, then why did he not show up?

Parker: I don't know. My dad's a cop. Stuff comes up all the time.

Liberty: But, you know, usually when that happens, he would call you, right?

Parker: Well, usually, but --

Liberty: Okay, trust me, dude. Your dad is totally taking the walk of shame down the Lakeview lobby right now.

Carly: Uh, no. There's a limit now. When we were married, I could call as many times as I wanted. "How are you? I'm worried about you? I hope you're okay." Now that we're divorced --

Holden: There's a limit.

Carly: You know, the forced casualness. "Give me a call. I've tried you a few times. I hope you're not lying dead in a ditch somewhere."

Holden: I didn't mean to snap at you before. Ouch. Are you pretending those are my neck, or some other part of my anatomy?

Lily: (Pruning some flowers) Lucky for you I like your anatomy just the way it is.

Holden: Well, that's reassuring. I'm sorry.

Holden: Better?

Lily: Much. We still have some unfinished business.

Holden: Still mad at me? Gonna kill some more plants?

Carly: So you're hungry?

Neal: No, no, but I'm not above pretending to be. It goes something like this -- i saunter in, matter of fact. "Oh, nice place." Drop by for a bit of a bite, and here's the lovely Carly again. Fancy that.

Carly: But I'd know it was no coincidence.

Neal: Being a bright woman, you'd see right through my ploy.

Carly: And I'd shoot you down.

Neal: But I was banking on you being the compassionate sort.

Carly: Since you're a stranger in a strange land --

Neal: Taking pity on me, you'd pretend my clumsy attempt to find myself once again in your presence wasn't awkward in the least. You Americans are much more forgiving than we Brits in that respect.

Carly: You didn't even know me.

Neal: I know you're lovely, kind -- at least about that guy you were looking for earlier.

Carly: Uh, Jack -- my ex.

Neal: Ex -- I like the sound of that. You're smiling. Either you think I'm funny --

Carly: Jury's still out.

Neal: -- Or you're feeling sorry for me. And since I'm not proud, I can run the risk of that for a while.

Carly: And where exactly are you headed on this run?

Neal: Just getting to know you, lovely Carly. By the looks of this place, you're a good businesswoman, and that's all I need to know for now. Did I mention that you're lovely?

Carly: Once or twice.

Neal: And single.

Neal: So you are available?

Carly: You're nice, and charming.

Neal: Your words are saying, "Yes, yes," but your face is saying, "Bye-bye."

Carly: Mm. It's true. The fact is, I'm not interested in dating anyone at the moment. I'm sorry.

Neal: No. I'm -- I'm sorry to have presumed. While I'm at it, is this your phone?

Carly: Yeah, it is. What are you doing?

Neal: Just punching in my number. I could leave my card, but I believe in saving steps.

Carly: Didn't you just say something about being presumptuous?

Neal: You are terrifically insightful, and lovely.

Carly: He's British! He's British! When I was on the rebound from jack, I bounced over to that Australian, remember? And I almost ended up in prison for grand larceny. And now that I'm --

Holden: On the rebound from me?

Carly: I'm vulnerable, okay? If I hook up with this guy, I am gonna end up being hunted down by Interpol or Scotland yard or whatever.

Holden: For what?

Carly: For murdering somebody!

Holden: Him?

Carly: You, for pimping me out!

Jack: I, uh -- I don't have my wallet. I think it's --

Janet: Upstairs?

Jack: Uh-huh.

Janet: Oh! Well, you know what they say, don't you?

Jack: What? "A guy without his wallet can't pay for breakfast"?

Janet: No. "If you leave something someplace that means that you want to return there."

Jack: Is that so?

Janet: Well, think about it. Aren't there a few moments from last night that you'd like to revisit again -- and again, and again?

Jack: But I thought that this was supposed to be one night of -- one night of fun, casual.

Janet: Oh! Oh, I -- you think that a one-night stand can only last for one night.

Jack: That's kind of the definition.

Janet: Oh, no, honey. It's all about fun. A one-night stand lasts as long as you like.

Jack: No. I -- I need -- I need you to say it. 'Cause I'm, you know, kind of gun-shy.

Janet: Okay, Mr. Gun-shy. No strings. Although, you know, it is sounding kind of funny from -- coming from a man who actually carries a gun for a living.
