Celia: Is this for the live auction or the silent auction?
Colby: You haven't done this much, have you? Fancy stuff -- trip, puppies, men -- live. Baskets, gift certificates, cheesy T-shirts -- silent. Got it?
Celia: Mm-hmm. Yeah!
Colby: Mm. He's so hot. How much do you think he's gonna bring in?
Celia: Well, definitely more than a puppy.
Colby: Sense of humor. Who knew?
Celia: Are you gonna bid?
Colby: Are you?
Celia: I'd rather have a puppy.
Colby: Mm. Pete's already been potty trained. You should see him roll over and beg.
Celia: [Chuckles] You know, I'm gonna go do the place cards. Oh. I forgot them at Bramwell. I will be right back.
Colby: No, no, no, no. You don't have a car, and we need those charts us ASAP. I'll drive you. It'll be faster.
Celia: Okay. Thanks.
Jane: Are you excited about being auctioned off?
Pete: Well, I'd be a lot more excited if I had a date with Celia. But... if that were the case, I wouldn't be on the block at all, if I were still seeing her.
Jane: You'd be off the market completely.
Pete: Yeah. You know, Celia torched me, but I cannot get this girl out of my head.
Jane: So, tell her already.
Pete: I've tried. Trust me. Every chance I get. Not a dent. Hell, she's the one that recommended me as the bachelor. Does that sound like somebody who's interested in a relationship with me?
Jane: Well, you convinced her to save you a dance, so just lay on that Cortlandt charm, those big, brown eyes. She'll be yours.
Billy Clyde: Peter Cortlandt?
Pete: Uh, Pete. And you are?
Billy Clyde: Billy Clyde Tuggle. I knew your father.
Cassandra: You should have just left me in that trash bin when I was a baby.
Angie: Don't talk like that.
Cassandra: My birth mother threw me away for a reason. Because -- because that's what I am -- trash.
Angie: Stop it. Stop it, Cassandra, please. You are my miracle! My precious miracle, and I love you!
[Knock on door]
Jesse: What, are you kidding me? Perfect end to a perfect day.
David: I had no idea you'd be here.
Jesse: Thought you'd just pop over to my poor, lonely wife some of your special company?
David: No. I just thought I'd drop this off.
Jesse: "Dealing with trauma."
David: Actually, I'm happy you're back.
Jesse: So, now we add liar to the list of your prodigious attributes.
David: No. It's because your wife and your daughter clearly need you. I just hope you have an attorney smart enough to beat the charges.
Jesse: Well, I won't need an attorney. Charges were dropped.
David: [Chuckles] Of course, they were. We both break the law because our daughters are threatened. Mine dies, and I get five years in the slammer. But you? Pine Valley's own police chief -- now you are guilty as hell, but of course, you get a pass, because you're such a damn good citizen, right?
Jesse: Get out. Take your stupid little self-help book with you.
David: You don't get it, do you?
Jesse: You know what I get? I get you sniffing all over my wife like some sick, inbred mutt in heat. It's pathetic, and it's gonna stop.
David: Oh, really? And why should it stop? She obviously needs someone that she can trust.
Jesse: Trust? You make me laugh. You -- that's hilarious. Trust a man like you who has brought nothing but pain, suffering, and misery into every single life you've ever touched.
David: Really? Really?
David: Really? Well, I guess it escaped your attention that your wife is seeing today because of me. Now, how about a little gratitude for once in awhile?
Jesse: How about a little memory for once in awhile. Have you forgotten that you blackmailed her into resigning her position as chief of staff at the hospital? Forgot that, have we?
David: Yeah, well, at least, I didn't take off for -- what was it? 20 years, then marry another woman and have a child with her. Are you kidding me? And then what did you do? You came crawling back with your crocodile tears, telling Angie how much you love her.
Jesse: God, what are you, 5? [Mockingly] At least, I didn't blah, blah, blah, blah, blah! Man, I left to protect my family. I had no choice.
David: [Scoffs] Oh, give me a break. There's always a choice, but you always seem to make the wrong one. Let us examine this for a second, shall we? When your baby died, what did you do? Did you tell Angie the truth? Hell, no! No, you just substituted your baby for another baby, and you hoped that Angie wouldn't know. What, are you kidding me?
Jesse: Watch your step, Hayward. You are perilously out of line.
David: No. It's not called out of line when you're telling the truth. You're a royal screw-up, Hubbard.
David: Your wife is too good a person to call you on your bullshit, but I'm not. Angie keeps forgiving you over and over and over again.
Jesse: Oh, please, shut up!
David: She deserves so much better than you.
Jesse: Oh, she deserves somebody like you, somebody that drugs people, kidnaps them, not to mention JR -- you shot that boy point blank!
David: Oh, come on! That boy was pointing a gun at a room full of people. If I have any regrets at all, it's that he's still walking this not-so-good earth!
Jesse: And whose finger was on that trigger... when your daughter died? Yours or his?
David: You son of a bitch.
Jesse: Oh, struck a nerve, have we? Don't stand there fronting as if you have some sort of compassion. You don't! What the hell did you come back to Pine Valley in the first place? You got no family here. Sure as hell got no friends!
David: No. See, that's where you're wrong. Because while you were out there obstructing justice, trying to frame an innocent man for murder, I was right there at your wife's side, helping her to find the strength to support your daughter.
Jesse: Angela knows that I am there for her whenever she needs me.
David: Right, right, right. Just like you were there for her when she asked you to go to a therapist with her, right?
Jesse: I was dealing with something extremely urgent.
David: Oh, okay. So, in other words, you were some place else, just like you were some place else when your daughter had an abortion. Where the hell were you then?!
Jesse: What? Get out of my way. [Runs out]
Angie: You have brought me nothing but joy.
Cassandra: I killed my baby. Does that bring you joy? [Crying]
Angie: Cassandra, you have been through hell, and there is no easy way back, sweetheart, but I love you. And I support every decision you make. Every step you take.
Cassandra: Did you shrink tell you to say that?
Dixie: Come on. Why don't you get some coffee? I'll sit with Cassandra for a while, okay?
Angie: I'll be back.
Cassandra: I don't need a babysitter.
Dixie: No, but you could use a friend.
Cassandra: I thought it would make me feel better to have the baby gone. But I feel the same -- dirty. It's never gonna go away.
Dixie: No, it won't, but you can choose how to deal with it.
Cassandra: All I want to do is forget everything that happened, but every time I close my eyes, I see everything.
Dixie: Hey. I brought something for you.
Cassandra: It's beautiful. Will you help me?
Dixie: Absolutely. I want you to wear this and remember that you will get past this. And you will be you again.
Dixie: May all your tears turn to gold.
Celia: It's in here somewhere.
Colby: A little virginal, princess-y, but... nice. You like it?
Celia: Boarding school? It's all I've ever really known. Ah. Here it is.
Colby: [Chuckles] Ah. I'm surprised my parents didn't ship me off to boarding school.
Celia: I would've. Well, it had to be pretty cool, and you got to see your mom and dad every day.
Colby: Yeah. Very cool. Except for all the screaming, yelling, and fighting. And hell, my mom got so tired of it, she just took off with me.
Colby: Yeah. My dad got super controlling, so we ended up just living out of our suitcases from place to place, and every time I met someone or made a friend, we had to move.
Celia: I'm sorry. That had to be really hard.
Colby: No. No attachments, no getting hurt. I learned a lot. I learned how to look after myself, 'cause no one else will.
Celia: Well... at least you know them. All I've got is a couple of pictures and a locket.
Colby: Wow. I mean, my parents can get on my last nerve, but I can't imagine life without them.
Evelyn: Here you are. Are you ready to find the perfect dress?
Colby: For the gala?
Evelyn: Hello. I'm Evelyn.
Colby: Colby Chandler. Co-chair with Celia.
Celia: Yeah, I'm ready.
Colby: Oh. Why don't you come with me to my fitting? Yvette will swoon all over you and your figure. I promise you it will be one-of-a-kind sensational. It'll be magnifique.
Celia: How can I pass up magnifique?
Zach: So what do you do?
Miranda: It's ridiculous.
Jane: You need anything?
Zach: No, we're good. Thanks. It's not too late to catch up with your friends, you know.
Miranda: What, are you trying to get rid of me?
Zach: No! I understand you want to hang with your handsome uncle, but you want to be with AJ and... what's the trollop?
Miranda: And I think I'd just be in the way.
Zach: So they are dating?
Miranda: I don't know. Kind of. I -- he invited her as his plus-one to the gala, so... that's kind of a date, right?
Zach: Are you still going?
Zach: And you need a dress, right?
Zach: Let's go.
Miranda: Let's go where?
Zach: Come on.
Miranda: All right, all right.
Dixie: Hey. I persuaded Dr. Anders to let Cassandra stay one more night, but he says there's no medical reason why she shouldn't leave tomorrow.
Jesse: Hey. Is it true about Cassandra?
Dixie: I'll -- I'll leave you alone.
Jesse: Is it true she had an abortion?
Angie: [Sighs] Yes. Yes, and I should have been here with her.
Jesse: Oh, my God. It's my fault. If you hadn't been there for me at that stupid-ass bail hearing --
Angie: Jessie. Please. You are my husband. How would it look to a judge if I wasn't there to support you?
Jesse: I'm so sorry. For everything.
Angie: We're here now, and Cassandra needs us.
Jesse: Well, how is she?
Angie: She thinks that I'm disgusted by her, by what she's done.
Jesse: Angie, look --
Angie: She -- she thinks I hate her. My -- my baby thinks I hate her!
Miranda: Okay, that dress is totally gorgeous. Thank you so much.
Zach: Yeah, I don't know.
Miranda: What do you mean, you don't know? It's perfect.
Zach: What if you wake up and you don't like the color?
Miranda: It's my favorite color.
Zach: Then it's decided. You need a backup. And you know what else you need? Shoes. I know this. Women need shoes. More shoes than anybody.
Miranda: It's decided -- you're nuts. But that's why I love you.
Zach: Well, an uncle's work is never done. Miranda, you remember Lea.
Miranda: Right. Your personal bodyguard.
Lea: Not anymore. What's the occasion?
Miranda: Oh, Chandler Media is having this huge party, so Uncle Zach is taking me shopping.
Lea: Well, that's very nice.
Zach: Hey, anything for those I love.
Lea: Miranda is a very lucky girl.
Miranda: Um... I'll be in the car. It's good to see you again.
Lea: Good to see you, too. She's sweet.
Zach: Yeah, she is.
Lea: Okay. I know that we can't go back, but I just need you to understand why I couldn't look the other way when it came to Jesse.
Zach: No. No. I understand. I get it. You chose your job over Jesse and his family. I understand.
Jesse: We're gonna get through this.
Angie: I haven't told Cassandra about your arrest. She's being released tomorrow.
Jesse: There's not gonna be a trial.
Angie: Oh, Jesse, thank God the DA realized you were only protecting your daughter and dropped the charges.
Jesse: Actually, they offered me a deal, and that deal was that the charges would only be dropped... if I resigned.
Angie: Oh, Jesse. Your job. I'm so sorry.
Jesse: Cassandra is safe. That's really all that matters.
Jane: From the looks of those bags and the number of them, I'm guessing something sweet and definitely chocolate.
Miranda: The woman is a mind reader.
Jane: [Chuckles] I have just the thing.
Lea: You guys are still shopping?
Miranda: Yes. Oh, my gosh. Look at this.
Miranda: It's cool, isn't it?
Lea: How beautiful!
Miranda: Yeah, Uncle Zach picked it out. Can you believe it? My uncle, the fashionisto.
Zach: It's all you. It had nothing to do with me.
Miranda: He's being totally modest. Man's a serious shopper.
Lea: With great taste. [Laughs] How are you gonna wear your hair?
Miranda: I don't know yet. Um, I have a couple ideas, but I'm not sure.
Lea: Well, you have gorgeous hair. Maybe something up, but loose, and definitely with the clip.
Miranda: Yeah, I was thinking something like that. Um... like maybe something like this.
Zach: It's very nice.
Billy Clyde: I ain't no whippersnapper no more, no. I can't keep up this pace. I might just keel right over. Do you mind if we take a -- like, a two-minute breathing spell here?
Pete: Yeah, no problem.
Billy Clyde: [Sighs] [Groans]
Pete: So, how did you know my father, exactly?
Billy Clyde: Well, we had, uh, mutual acquaintances. And plus we both enjoy the finer things in life. [Chuckles] Yes. [Sighs] So, I hear that you are an entrepreneur.
Pete: I am. I actually restructured and expanded my father's company. It's Cortech now.
Billy Clyde: Impressive. I hear you have a business down there in the Silicon Valley.
Pete: You keep up.
Billy Clyde: [Laughs] So, your primary work is out west, but you're here.
Pete: Yeah, it was, uh, it was supposed to be temporary. Pretty much just get my dad's company back in order, and then, uh... then I met this girl. She was amazing.
Billy Clyde: Past tense? That means there's trouble in proverbial paradise?
Pete: She broke up with me.
Billy Clyde: A fine specimen of a human being like yourself? She b -- what -- what d -- did you come on to her? Did you take advantage of her? What?
Pete: No, no, no. Of course not. No. I've actually never met anyone like Celia in my life. That's her name -- Celia.
Billy Clyde: Well, you mustn't let her get away!
Pete: Maybe you should try and talk to her. [Chuckles] You know what? This is where I got to leave you. I got a conference call with the coast in, like, five minutes. But it was very nice to meet you, Mr. Tuggle.
Billy Clyde: Pleasure's mine. I hope to do it again.
Celia: Isn't it incredible? It's to die for! Look at the line and the fabric. It's totally parfait and joli and all those other words Colby uses.
Evelyn: [Laughs] Well, I love it. Colby's vocabulary, I'm not so sure about.
Celia: I know, right? We -- we actually had fun. She's actually pretty cool.
Evelyn: She's been very cruel.
Celia: I know, but that's because of Pete. She has a thing for him.
Evelyn: That's no excuse to treat you badly.
Celia: Maybe she's over it?
Evelyn: Be careful.
Celia: I know. I will. But I really think Colby and I are kind of cool now.
Celia: Did I mention that this kind of costs a fortune?
Evelyn: Yes. You did.
Celia: Do you think my guardian is going to be upset?
Evelyn: I think that any excuse to dress you up as a princess for a night, and he's going to be absolutely thrilled.
Yvette: Are you happy with the dress?
Colby: It's ravissant.
Yvette: Bon. Je suis content.
Colby: Mm. Thank you for fitting my friend, Celia. Did you get all the measurements? Is everything okay?
Yvette: The operations will be simple. She is so charmant. And in that dress -- a vision.
Colby: I'll be the only vision anyone sees that night. [Chuckles]
Yvette: You are incorrigible.
Colby: And your best client.
Yvette: Mm-hmm. Ah. I will make these alterations, and I will deliver the dress tomorrow, right after I drop off Miss Celia's dress. Oh, I must have forgot the garment bag in the fitting room. I'll be back.
Colby: [Changes something on the notepad]
Cassandra: They told you.
Jesse: I wish your mother and I could have been there for you. [Voice breaking] I just want you to know that we will do anything and everything we can to help you.
Cassandra: If it wasn't for you... you saved me.
Jesse: [Scoffs] It should have been sooner. I wish it would have been sooner. I love you.
Dixie: Angie, Cassandra hates herself, and she's just projecting all of those feelings onto you.
Angie: She really believes she disgusts me.
Dixie: It's just a way for her to cope. It's a phase. It will pass. There's no quick fix here. What she needs is time and patience and a lot of love.
Angie: Cassandra is not the only one who's gonna need time and patience and love. Jesse was forced to resign as chief.
Dixie: [Gasps] Oh, Angie. I'm so sorry.
Angie: It was the only way to get the charges dropped. My daughter's alive, and my husband isn't going to prison. I should be grateful. And I am. But it just feels like our lives have been ripped right out from under us, and I don't know what to do. I don't know how to fix it. What if I can't?
Miranda: [Laughing] That was a blast.
Zach: And we haven't dropped yet. Put it down.
Miranda: What's that? Aw. AJ wants to camp by the lake tonight.
Zach: Oh! That best friend thing -- nothing like it.
Miranda: Except for that amazing uncle thing. Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Zach: I love you.
Miranda: I love you! You know, I'm starting to think there's a little more to you than just hockey.
Zach: I'm deep.
Miranda: [Laughs] I can't wait to show my mom that dress.
Zach: You mom would like that.
Miranda: Yeah. Well, you know, maybe when she comes back, we can all go shopping.
Zach: Yeah, we can do that, or do something else -- go see a game or... go shopping.
Zach: She's gonna love you in that dress, so take a picture, would you, please?
Miranda: What? You're not coming?
Zach: No, that's not my thing.
Miranda: Oh, come on! It won't be nearly as fun without you! Please?
Zach: That's a good point. So, I will find a suit, and, yeah, I'll go with you.
Miranda: Yay! Thank you!
