[Lily talking to a picture of Luke and Holden]

Lily: Oh.  I'll find you.  I promise I will and I'll bring you home.

[Doorbell rings]

Lily: Mom --

Lucinda: Hi, honey.  Oh.  How you doing?

Lily: I'm better.

Lucinda: Oh, I'm so glad.  A million apologies, honey, about abandoning you over the holiday, but I had to.  Duty called, business.

Lily: I'm glad you're home.

Lucinda: Oh, and I came just in time.  Are you going somewhere?

Lily: Rose didn't tell you?

Lucinda: No.  No, no, darling, I'm right, straight from the airport.

Lily: I'm going out of town.

Lucinda: I think that's an outstanding idea, darling.  With -- with Faith and you, too, you need it, the two of you, to get some together.

Lily: It's not a vacation, or grieving period.

Lucinda: Well, where are you going?

Lily: To Malta.  To find Luke and Holden.  To bring them home, and I need your help. 

Simon: Yeah, there's only room for two people on that plane.  So sorry to leave you behind, but those are the breaks, Coleman.

Henry: Wait, wait, wait -- you don't mean that!  He's always joking, this guy.  He wouldn't -- he wouldn't leave me here on a rock in the middle of the ocean!

Simon: Give me one good reason.

Henry: Wait, wait, wait -- wait a second.  I did not sign on for a one-way trip.

Simon: Oh, then take it up with your travel agent.  Let's go, Katie.

Katie: The joke's over, Simon.  We're not going to leave you here, right?

Simon: The hell we're not. 

Jack: When I get things squared away with Cass, maybe I can help you out a little -- you know, if you need to buy fabric, whatever.

Carly: That would be great.

Jack: Cass has got to come through.

Carly: He will.  I know he will.  But you know, honey, you're not alone anymore.  I know you've got your pride, and that's great, but it's the two of us together from now on, right?

Jack: Hey, you've got any ideas, I'm open.

Carly: Well, actually, I do, only you're not gonna like it.

Jack: Well, let's see.  You're too crazy about your firstborn son to put him on the market, right?

Carly: Right.

Jack: Not planning on selling your blood?

Carly: No.

Jack: No.  You know a liquor store we can knock over, no problem?

Carly: The cops would be all over me.

Jack: Oh, now there's an idea.

Carly: Stop it.

Jack: You're the one who brought it up.  Okay, so what's this "Get rich scheme" that's gonna turn our world around?

Carly: Well, I know somebody who's willing to pay me a small fortune to do something that's right up my alley, something I really love to do -- cut it out!

Jack: Okay, all right.  Go on, go on.  I'm sorry.  I'm sorry.  This opportunity --

Carly: It's enough to pay Cass for handling your divorce.  It's enough to pay off all your bills, enough to put us in the free and clear.

Jack: Who can foot a bill that steep?

Carly: Craig Montgomery. 

Craig: Can we do this outside?

Margo: Craig, you said you were going to walk me through this.

Craig: Well, I was never in here and to be here where she was burned.

Cass: My client is willing to answer your questions, but only insofar as they pertain to the night in question.

Craig: It's all right, Cass, she's my sister, too.  Tell her anything she wants.  Just -- just not here.

Margo: I'll make this as short as possible.  I promise, Craig.

Cass: I'd like it noted that my client is here of his own volition, and he's making every effort to cooperate under difficult circumstances.

Margo: Yes, noted and appreciated.  Thank you.  You realize that we found muddy shoes in your closet, shoes that matched a shoeprint we found just yards outside the boathouse?

Craig: Yes, I was in the vicinity the night of the explosion.

Margo: For what reason?

Craig: I came to get Barbara.  I tried to get through to her one last time, but I didn't get any closer than those trees up there.

Margo: How can we be sure of that?

Craig: Did you find any footprints closer to the boathouse?  I never talked to her.  I never spoke to her.  I never touched her.  I never did anything to cause her harm, Margo.  That's the truth. 

Margo: A witness overheard you and Barbara having an argument at Holden Snyder's memorial service, Craig.

Craig: We had a discussion.

Margo: A discussion so loud that someone had to remind you that you were in a church?

Craig: That's one person's perception.

Margo: What was this discussion about?

Craig: We had a difference of opinion over finances.  That's all. [Margo sighs] What's that supposed to mean?

Margo: I'm sorry, this story just doesn't sit well with me, Craig.  If you and Barbara argued everything out at the church, then why did you have to drive all the way out here and wait for her?

Craig: I was worried about her.  I was afraid for her.

Margo: You were afraid?

Craig: Yeah.

Margo: You thought that Barbara was in some kind of danger?  From whom?

Craig: From herself. 

Hal: All right, here's the deal.  We're going to go home, take a nap, then I'm going to take you to the park.

Emily: Hal, hey.

Hal: Hey, you.  You know what you did?

Emily: What?

Hal: You booked out on me, but you ate half my French fries, and you didn't leave anything for the bill.

Emily: Yeah, well, when I give you this tip, you're gonna want to pay me, sit down.

Hal: All right, what is it?

Emily: I'm assuming you didn't have a chance to look over your list yet.

I did.  I was stopped at a light, and I was scanning the names of special forces operatives in the area.

Hal: Yeah, comforting to know how many people in our little burgh know how to make a bomb.

Emily: Yeah, well, two things caught my eye, so I hung a U-turn and flew right back here.

Hal: Hmm-mm.

Emily: And I'm just waiting.  There you go.

Hal: Oh.

Emily: Familiar name catch your eye?

Hal: Tom Hughes -- yeah, he was special forces in 'Nam.

Emily: You knew?

Hal: Yeah, I knew.  Didn't you?  I mean, you --

Emily: Worked with the guy, slept with him, had his kid, and still, special forces, really?  I mean, he never even -- he never talked about it.

Who knew Tom Hughes' past was so dark and complicated, huh?

Hal: You are not saying that he had anything to do with Barbara, are you?

Emily: He's not that complicated, no, but it gives us an expert opinion.  I mean, he's the first person we're going to talk to, right?

Hal: Good thinking.  What's the other standout name here?

Emily: Right there.

Hal: Albert Norville.  That's supposed to ring a bell?

Emily: Nope, but look at the list of former employers.

Hal: Oh, Navy Seals, yada, yada.  Montgomery and Associates?

Emily: He worked security for Montgomery's old firm.

Hal: You mean the guy who is an expert at building the "better bomb" worked for Craig Montgomery?

Emily: They worked together.  They knew each other.

Hal: And maybe they planned a murder together? 

Lucinda: You're going to Malta?

Lily: Well, somebody has to bring Luke and Holden home.

Lucinda: Honey, tell me that you're not fixating still on the idea of the candy.

Lily: I may not have irrefutable proof, but I have something much better than that.  I have faith that my husband and my son are alive, and they need me to bring them home.  And I have a wonderful mother that can help me do that.

Lucinda: Well, you've got a mother who will definitely help you in anyway she possibly can if there's sufficient reason.

Lily: There is.

Lucinda: Oh, have there been new developments?

Lily: Yes, there have been.  Simon and I, we found this --

Lucinda: Oh, honey, if you knew -- if you knew how I shiver when you link your two names together.

Lily: Simon is the one person who believed me when nobody else did.

So I will always be grateful to him for that.  Just listen to what I have to say.

We tracked down Damian's cell phone number from that boat rental place in Wisconsin.

Lucinda: Did you call him?

Lily: Yes, I did.

Lucinda: Did someone answer?

Lily: Damian did answer, yes.

Lucinda: Was his voice?  Are you sure?

Lily: Yes, I'm sure.  I would know his voice anywhere.

Lucinda: Are you sure?

Lily: Would you know James Stenbeck's voice if you heard it?

Lucinda: There are some things you never forget.

Lily: If Damian is alive, that means Luke and Holden are alive, too, and Damian knows where they are.

Lucinda: Honey, have you had the phone traced?

Lily: Yes, but it was disconnected, because Damian knows that we're on to him.

Lucinda: If it's Damian.

Lily: Yes.  It is.  It doesn't matter.  It doesn't matter either way, because I'm going to do what I have to do.

Lucinda: Honey, go to Malta, to his place, his country, foreign country, with Damian's friends, Damian's enemies?  I'm sorry, darling, I can't allow you to do that.

Lily: I'm not asking for your permission, but I am asking for your help.

Henry: Wait, wait, wait, wait, Simon.

Simon: I'm sorry, boys.  I'm sorry.  I really am.  But that plane has space and weight limits, and I have patience and tolerance limits.

Henry: Can't -- just think of me as baggage?

Simon: My layover is over.  Let's jet, Katie.  We have hours of flying and many lectures ahead of us.

Katie: What lectures?

Simon: Well, the ones your mother obviously forgot to give you or the ones you ignored.  Let's go.

Henry: I'm all packed and ready.

Katie: Oh, wait, I can't leave without Snickers.

Simon: What, Snickers?  Oh, no, no, no, no.  That is not a pet.  That's dinner.

Henry: Yeah, we tried.

Cooley: Yeah, but she wasn't too keen on the idea.

Katie: You know, if Snickers doesn't go, I don't go.

Simon: Whatever, fine.  Take the rabbit.

Henry: What?!  This is unreal!  With everything that we've been through, with everything that you've put me through, you're gonna sell me out for a bunny rabbit?!

Katie: Well, if you were a little smaller and lighter and nicer maybe --

Henry: I was as nice as I get, Katie.

Katie: Well, good.  Good practice, honey, because you're gonna need that positive outlook.  You're gonna be here for a long, long time.

Henry: No, wait, wait, wait, wait.

Simon: Let's go. [Simon finds the “Simon” coconut]  What -- what the --

what is this?

Katie: That's you.

Cooley: Don't ask.

Simon: Me?

Henry: Yeah, yeah, she talked to it day and night.

Cooley: Like I said, don't ask.

Simon: It's a wonder you didn't starve to death the way you befriended all your food.

Henry: I know.  It's a wonder the fruit didn't commit suicide.

Katie: It's a wonder I didn't kill you in the middle of night with it!

Henry: This is it, Katie.  This is the last time I let you bring my life down to rubble.  You got it?

Simon: Yeah, that's right because this time the pleasure's all mine.  Say good-bye, Katie.

Henry: Wait, wait, wait.

Katie: Good-bye, Katie!  Bye, boys!  Thanks for everything!

Henry: Hey, Katie, you're not gonna leave me here to die, are you?

Cooley: You kids have a nice flight.

Henry: Katie, I am serious!  I won't survive here!  I'm allergic to shellfish!  We're gonna run out of sunblock, my skin's gonna get burned to a crisp!  Katie!

Cooley: And then there were two. 

Carly: And since they're desperately in need of a new head designer at B.R.O. for the spring line, and I just happen to have the next several months free on my calendar, Craig turned to me.

Jack: Naturally.

Carly: Meaning?

Jack: Who else is he gonna turn to, Carly?  Come on.  Go on.

Carly: Apparently, B.R.O. isn't doing very well, and Barbara didn't know it, but the whole operation was overextended.  Craig has had a chance to look over the books, and he's afraid they're gonna start a free fall unless he does something drastic.

Jack: Craig's worried for poor Barbara.

Carly: He just wants her to be something for her to wake up to, and since he's short a designer and the company is circling the drain, he's willing to offer me a pretty penny to step in and help save his assets.

Jack: And you want to take him up on this?

Carly: It's the perfect solution, Jack.  It's a win-win thing, you know?  He gets what he wants.  We get what we need.

Jack: You're not serious.

Carly: About what?  About my career, about making money?  You bet your sweet life I am, Jack.

Jack: Oh, Carly, I can't believe you're actually suggesting this.

Carly: Why?  Is it illegal?  No.  Is it immoral?  No.  It's a job, Jack.  It will help pay the bills.

Jack: You realize that Craig is running Barbara Ryan originals because the original Barbara Ryan is in a coma, and he's the major suspect?

Carly: Yeah.

Jack: Yeah, you know this, and yet you're ready and willing to profit from her misery?

Carly: No.  No, from hard work, Jack, and some really good designs.

Jack: Carly, I love your work.  I think you're incredibly talented, and I know how much time and effort goes into what you do.  I know this.

Carly: So you just want me to pass up a chance at making a name for myself?

Jack: This is Barbara's name, unless Craig is planning on taking that away from her, too.

Carly: I care what happens to Barbara, but since no jury has convicted Craig of anything, Jack --

Jack: It's a matter of time.

Carly: It's a job.  If I don't take this chance, somebody else will.

Jack: Let them.

Carly: All right.  All right, good, so I'm just supposed to pass up a chunk of change that could help buy us a new plot of land, that could help us build a little house for three or maybe four, that could get you out of debt, that could help us start our life together in the clear.

Jack: Don't -- don't -- don't do this, Carly.

Carly: Do what?

Jack: Twist everything around, convince yourself that teaming up with Montgomery would be the best thing for me.  This is my problem.  Let me deal with it. 

Henry: He'll be back.  He'll be back.  You'll see.  He'll come laughing like a big kookaburra.  Great practical jokers, those Aussies.

Cooley: Well, dingo boy didn't seem too amused to me.

Henry: Yeah, well, hey, maybe he's just trying to teach me a lesson, you know?  That's not the point.  You know, the point -- the point here is that that guy and I -- we've become really, really close over the last year in a strange sort of a way.  Not that strange sort of way.  They'll be back, you'll see.  They'll come running back.  You'll see it.

[Engine running]

Cooley: Well, I hate to be the one to break it to you --

Henry: He'll be back, all right?  She got us into this mess, and I've risked my life too many times!  She will not abandon me!

Cooley: Well, you better speak up, pal, you see, 'cause I don't think they can hear you.  It gets a little noisy in the cockpit when they start revving the engines, you know what I mean?  Whoa, wait a minute.  There they go.

There they go.  Okay, now, you can yell.  Yell loud!  Real loud!

Henry: No, no, no!  Wait, they're ditching me!  I don't believe this!

Cooley: Boy, you must have done something real awful.

Henry: No, no, all I did was make him think that I was pregnant so he would think that she was pregnant.  Katie, Katie, look down, will you?!

Come on!

Cooley: You know, truth be told, I'm gonna miss that little firecracker.

Well, time to set some rules 'cause we're gonna be neighbors.

Henry: What is that?  What is that?  Look up there by the plane.

Cooley: It's a bird.

Henry: Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's heading right towards the propellers.

Cooley: Oh, no, a bird -- it's got better sense than to --

Henry: Wait, wait, I didn't see that.  I've just been abandoned by my friends.  I guess this is -- this is great.  I've been abandoned by my friends, and now, I've seen one of God's little creatures all crushed up.  I guess -- I guess the worst is over, Henry.

[The dead bird falls to the beach]

Cooley: Well, you hang onto that thought, pal.  What did I tell you?

Look at it!

Henry: I'm looking at it!  It's disgusting.  You'll have your fun, Cooley.

Hold on.  Wait a second.  Look at the beak.

Cooley: You know, there's a ring around this beak.

Henry: It's just like the one that stole Katie's diamond.

Cooley: You know, they say if you live alone long enough, you see everything.

Henry: Must be some hallucination. [Henry finds the diamond still clutched in his claws] Oh!  Oh, my!  It's a million dollar dream!  Oh, no, no, no.  Hey!  Hey, hey!  Hey, Katie!  Hey, look!  We got your diamond!

Katie: Did you hear something?

Simon: It was just the engine.  Don't worry.  You'll be safe and sound, at least until we get back to Oakdale.

Katie: Bye, Henry.  Bye, Cooley.  Bye, Simon's island.  Good luck.

Simon: Just wait till we get back to Oakdale. 

Lily: So this is how you can help me.  As soon as I land in Malta, I'm gonna need some contact names, some contact names that you cannot find in embassy handouts.

Lucinda: These contacts -- these contacts, how are they going to find Holden and Luke?  Do you know how --

Lily: I'm just asking for a couple of names, that's all, just in case I run into any trouble.

Lucinda: Thank you.  You said the word -- trouble.  All right, darling?  I think we should think of safer alternatives now.

Lily: Like what?

Lucinda: I'll make the phone calls.  Of course, I'll make any number of phone calls for you, and we will find professionals who do this sort of thing.

Lily: Detectives?

Lucinda: Yes, darling, we've done it before.  We've done it in Malta before.  They will do the dirty work, and they will follow all the leads.  And you will be here, and you will be confident that your case is in the right hands.

Lily: You don't believe that Luke and Holden are alive.  If you believed the way that I do you would ask me why I'm not in Malta already looking for them.

Lucinda: Darling, I know why you're not.  You're not because you have a little girl right now.

Lily: Yes, who misses her father and her brother, and I want to be the one to bring them home!

Lucinda: All right!  All right!  Go to Malta!  Fine!  Go to Malta.  Why don't you go and then check into a nice hotel --

Lily: Oh!

Lucinda: -- And let these people bring their reports to you?

Lily: You really think I can do that?

Lucinda: Why not?  They are professionals.  They are well-trained.  They are armed.  And what's the harm in it?

Lily: I've been sitting around here doing nothing and what has it gotten me?

Lucinda: Lily, you want to risk your precious life when there are professionals at our disposal who can help us and make it faster and --

Lily: These professionals -- do they have intimate knowledge of Damian?

Did they live with him?  Do they know his voice, his habits, his past?  Do they know Malta?  Are they going to live, breathe and sleep this case until it's done?  Are they willing to give up everything they are, everything that they have to bring my husband and my son home?  What would you do?

Lucinda: Now, don't give me the "What would I do thing." Don't give me that.

Lily: Would you entrust the lives of your family to a complete stranger who is paid and has no vested interest, or would you jump on a plane and find them yourself? 

Carly: I love that you're self-sufficient, Jack, and I love that you want to take care of Parker.

Jack: I just want to have what we had before Julia blew through our lives.

Carly: We will.  We're gonna have those dreams, Jack.  Why can't I be a part of making them come true?

Jack: I have zero problem with you having a career.  I want you to get your stuff out there, Carly.  And when you're rich and powerful and a household name, no one will be prouder.  You know that.  But to work for Craig Montgomery?  Honey, there's got to be a better way to earn a buck.

Carly: I would kill for a better opportunity.

Jack: Okay, so let's be patient.  Something better has to come along.

Carly: When?  Lisa has smeared my name from one end of this business to the other.

Jack: What about New York?

Carly: Oh, good.  So we could go there, and we could be poor while I try to make a name for myself in a place where new names are a dime a dozen?

Jack, Craig can make this happen for me now -- not ten years from now.

Jack: And what he did to Hal and his family, all the suspicion -- how can you contemplate this?

Carly: Don't you get it?  I would do whatever it takes to give you the life you deserve.  Whatever it takes.

Margo: All right, now, let me get this straight.  You were concerned that Barbara was a danger to herself.  So that sounds like you were worried about her mental health?

Craig: Yes, I was.

Margo: So instead of stopping her at the church before she even drove out here, you come out here to, what, head her off at the pass?

Craig: Oh, we'd argued.  I was the last person in the world she wanted to see.

Margo: All right, all right.  So you were concerned enough to drive out here, you were concerned enough to spy on her, but you didn't stop her.  You just watched.

Craig: When I saw her waiting for Jack, clutching those financial records so tight, her knuckles were white, I knew she was convinced that I was wrong, and there was nothing I could do.  It was futile, so I -- I -- I walked away.

Margo: Just as simple as that?

Craig: As simple as that.  What's the problem?

Margo: The problem is, Craig -- the problem is, you're doing exactly what I was afraid that you would do.  You're doing exactly what you always do when your back is up to the wall.  You're lying! 

Craig: I promised I'd be straight with you, Margo, and I have been.  I've told you the God's honest truth here!

Margo: Just tell me what your discussion was with Barbara?

Craig: All right.  Now, look here, there's no secret that Barbara's family and friends didn't approve of our marriage.  They were constantly making her second-guess herself, filling her full of doubts.  All right?  Are you getting this?  Would you like to take notes or something?

Margo: I'm gonna remember this for a long time to come, Craig.  Go on.

Cass: Then confine your answers to the night in question, Craig.

Craig: All right.  After our marriage, I took a closer look at B.R.O.'s books.  And I made some suggestions, some necessary suggestions, to keep the company competitive, to keep it in business.  The company was on the brink of collapse.  And Barbara deferred this to her son Paul.  You know?

Then she started defending Paul's sloppy business techniques.  Huh?  Then she proceeded to turn me into an enemy.  It was like classic denial.  It was frightening, actually.

Margo: "Classic denial." Psychological problems.

Craig: Well, I'm not a doctor.

Margo: Was she seeking professional help?

Craig: Well, if not, she probably should have been.

Margo: But did you confront her with your concerns?  Did you -- did you insist that she go see a doctor, Craig?

Craig: No.  No.  I was hoping to relieve some of her pressure by, you know, helping get the business back on its feet.

Margo: So you're telling me that despite the fact that Barbara accused you of embezzling funds from B.R.O., You were actually trying to help her company to save it from troubled waters?

Craig: Correct.

Margo: And insistent that she was in this fragile psychological state, it's despite the fact that none of her friends or family ever noticed it.

Craig: They weren't close to her, were they?  I was.

Margo: Yet you weren't concerned enough to get her to go see a doctor.

My God!  Despite all of these inconsistencies, Craig, despite what I know to be fact, you insist that this story is true!

Craig: Well, what do you want, Margo?  Sometimes, the truth is stranger than fiction.

[Margo huffs]

Emily: This is driving me nuts.

Hal: What's driving you nuts?

Emily: This weird game plan we've got going.  Are we trying to get Craig off the hook or are we trying to send him to the gallows?  Because now, you got me doing it.  Now, you got me thinking, is he innocent?  No, one day he's guilty.  Every day, we get new information, and you have to remind me, what we are we looking for here?

Hal: The truth, Emily, and if that puts Craig Montgomery behind bars?

My life is complete.

[Hal dips his French fry in his coffee]

Emily: I'm gonna pretend you didn't do that.  What is it gonna take to convince you one way or the other?

Hal: A confession would be nice.

Emily: How about a confession from an accomplice?  Give me this list.

We're gonna need a number and address on this guy.  I'm gonna call my office, unless of course you want to hang around here dunking fries in coffee all day.

Hal: It's an acquired taste, like some people I know.

Emily: I'm not keeping you from anything, am I?

[Emily dips her fry in coffee while Hal isn’t looking, but Hal catches her and just smiles]

Hal: Well, we had plans.  Was gonna take a nap, but --

Emily: Bruce, it's Emily.  Listen, you're gonna start earning your keep.  I need some information.  Yeah. 

Simon: There's food and water in the cooler back there.  Help yourself.

Katie: No, thanks.

Simon: You've got to be hungry.  You're not hungry?!

Katie: I didn't say that.

Simon: What's wrong?

Katie: Well, say, I have a sandwich and maybe some water and accidentally spill some on the console.  You're gonna start yelling at me again like you have been since we took off.

Simon: Yelling?

Katie: So no thanks.  I will just sit here in silence until we get home and you start acting more like a human being.

Simon: I wasn't yelling!

Katie: Okay.

Simon: How else can I get it into your head?  This unbelievably reckless adventure of yours has put us in the hole for a very long time.

Katie: What do you mean?

Simon: I spent every cent I earned tracking you down, and somebody's gonna have to pay a small fortune for that plane you trashed.

Katie: Well, can't they just come and fix it?

Simon: Why fly into the middle of nowhere and fix a plane when they can take a hefty chunk out of somebody's butt instead?

Katie: I'll figure something out.

Simon: Just face it, Katie.  You lost.  You lost.  You have nothing but enough debt to choke a horse and a pretend husband who's never been so ticked off in his life.

Katie: Oh, come on.  I have a lot more than that.

Simon: What, a wretched case of scurvy?

Katie: When that bird took your diamond, I made one wish -- that you would come and rescue me.  And you did. 

Lucinda: Well, of course we know what I would do.  I'd jump on the plane.  I did it for sierra.  But I didn't have a --

Lily: Fine.  Why won't you help me?

Lucinda: Because this isn't -- it's not the most prudent course of action, because you don't know what you're getting yourself in for, honey.  And it's inspired by what?  A wish and a lot of odd coincidences, connect-the-dots stuff and one big hope.

Lily: What do I do?  What else do I have?  Do I play the grieving widow and mother for the rest of my life?  Just forget about my little boy and move on?

Lucinda: Honey, it's just that I'm -- I don't know.  Couldn't you take a little time to plan?

Lily: I don't have any more time.  The longer I wait, the closer I get to spending my life without them, to sleeping alone, wondering what happened to them, wondering whether faith would have grown up with her brother and her father if I had just worked a little faster!  So no, I'm not giving up on them.  So are you going to help me with my arrangements or not?

Lucinda: I'm not.  But -- I'm gonna go a step further.  I'm going with you. 

Carly: I mean, don't get mad.  I just want to ask you one more time.

You're not jealous, are you?

Jack: Of course not.  Look, if there's anything I've realized the past few weeks, it's how much you love me.  You prove it over and over.

Carly: Well, good.  So then what is the problem with me taking the job?

Jack: Oh, everything.  Everything is the problem, Carly!  You're going into business with a man that I'm investigating for murder?!  It's suicide.

Carly: He's not just a suspect, Jack.  He's also a businessman.  A businessman who happens to run a business.

Jack: You know, I've spent my life dealing with people who can't be trusted.  Do you have any idea how it makes me feel, you cozying up to one of them?

Carly: I am not some child who can't handle herself, Jack.

Jack: Nobody can handle Craig.

Carly: Nothing is gonna happen to me.

Jack: That's what Barbara tried to tell everybody, that he was harmless, misunderstood, and now, she's fighting for her life.

Carly: Craig had nothing to do with the explosion.

Jack: Okay, but the idea that he could have, the possibility he might have and the fact that his own sister is gunning for him, that doesn't mean anything to you?!

Carly: If the man can help?

Jack: Short-term help from Craig Montgomery equals long-term headache.  We just got Julia out of our lives.  The last thing we need to do is get involved with the devil! 

Simon: Please, do not ready into my actions too much.  Trust me.

Katie: You did rescue me.

Simon: And I'll never forgive you for it.

Katie: Okay, of course you haven't said, "I'm so glad you're alive" or "Babe, you're a sight for sore eyes."

Simon: And I won't.

Katie: Well, you don't have to, because we speak each other's unspoken language.

Simon: Right.  On what planet?

Katie: You know, Henry went on and on about how you didn't care about me and how you were just gonna leave me on that island to rot.

Simon: Yeah, well, I came pretty darned close.

Katie: But I knew you'd come for me, because you love me.

Simon: All right, Katie.  Listen up, and please, right this down or at least commit it to memory.  I do not love you.  There is no chance I will ever love you.  You have cost me way too much for one lifetime.

Katie: You ought to be glad I forgive you.

Simon: You?!  You forgive me?!

Katie: You how many weeks did it take you to come get me, huh?  What was that about?

Simon: Well, next time you want to play little desert island damsel in distress, tell someone.  Tell someone apart from me.  No one ever knew your note existed until last week.

Katie: When you finally do come, you're a total disappointment.

Simon: Disappointment how?

Katie: In my dream, when you rescued me, you came out of the water, and you took me in your arms, and you told me that you cared about nothing but me.

Simon: Oh, you poor thing.  See, that's called sunstroke.  I'll get you a doctor when we get back.

Katie: In reality, I had to be the one to take you in my arms, but that's okay.  You did find me, and you did kiss me back.  So that means you care.

Simon: I never said I didn't care about you.  I just said I wasn't in love with you.

Katie: How deluded are you? 

Lily: Mother, you don't have to accompany me.

Lucinda: It's a great idea.  I know Malta.  I know the house.

Lily: I don't want your doubts around me.  I want -- I believe that Holden and Luke are alive 100%.  I want people like that around me.

Lucinda: I believe you believe, and that's good enough for me.

Lily: Thank you.

Lucinda: And honey, if things shouldn't turn out the way you want and, you know, it's not a happy reunion, you'll need somebody, and I'll be there.

Lily: But I can't travel with you.  It's like traveling with a rock star.

Lucinda: Oh, come on.

Lily: No, it's true.  People like you, you land there, people take your pictures, they're fawning all over you.

Lucinda: You think I can't make myself inconspicuous?

Lily: No, you can't.  There's no way I'd be able to travel around Malta without -- Damian's gonna find out that you're there, and then he'll go further underground than he already is.

Lucinda: If Damian's there.

Lily: I don't want people second-guessing me.

Lucinda: Honey, it's not you.  It's the world that I'm worrying about.  I want you to just take a step back and be practical.

Lily: Coming from the queen of practical?

Lucinda: All right.  Think about your daughter.  Think about little Faith.

Do you want to even think that she might lose her mother as well as her father?

Lily: I've already been over this with Emma.  I don't have to worry about Faith, 'cause I'm gonna be fine.  I'll be careful.

Lucinda: Oh, you went over it with Emma?

Lily: I did.

Lucinda: Oh, that's nice.  Look, dear, you could at least send the professionals out in the advance guard, you know, to check out, so that --

you don't know what you're getting into.  You could be in the line of fire.

You could do that?

Lily: I don't want to waste any more time.

Lucinda: It's just a little bit of time, you know?  It would just be a few days.  Oh, good.  Oh, wonderful.  You're not saying no.  That means that you could think about it just a few more days for me?  Please do it for me.

[Doorbell rings]

Messenger: Hi.  I've got a box for Mrs. Lily Snyder?

Lily: Oh, that's me.

Messenger: I just need you to sign right there.

Lily: Okay.  Look at all these stamps.

Lucinda: Oh, yeah.  Where's that from?

Lily: It's from -- Algeria. 

Jack: Ms.  Tenney?

Carly: Uh-huh?

Jack: Are you -- are you trying to seduce me?

Carly: I'm making you late for work.  I'm distracting you.  I'm reminding you that you don't have to be on the job 24 hours a day.

Jack: You wanna bet?

Carly: Nothing is gonna come between us, Jack.  We've worked too hard.

We've made too many sacrifices.

Jack: I know that.

Carly: Honey, I don't need round-the-clock protection.

Jack: If I can't keep the woman I love from danger --

Carly: We need the money.

Jack: Oh, consider the source.

Carly: All I saw was a way to keep the wolves from the door.

Jack: Well, a suggestion for the future.  You don't keep the wolves from the door by inviting a lion to the dinner table.  And just because the lion hasn't made a meal of you yet doesn't mean it's not in the stars.

Carly: Okay, okay.  I don't know what I was thinking.

Jack: That you could come to my rescue and make a couple of our dreams and a few of your own come true at the same time.

Carly: I just thought working for Craig was the easiest way out.

Jack: Out of the frying pan, and into the blazing inferno.

Carly: All right.  So it was the worst idea in the universe. 

Cass: I'm here to offer you my legal counsel, not to have you waste my time.

Craig: Well, I'm sorry you feel that way, Cass.

Cass: You want to stay out of prison, huh?  Don't play games with the cops.

Craig: I'm here to clear my name.

Cass: Yeah?  The prisons are full of innocent men.

Craig: Well, and the difference between them and me is my first-class lawyer.

Cass: Whose advice you refuse to take.  You realize I am the only thing keeping you free right now.  But if you want to go on proving that you're smarter and cleverer and quicker than everybody else, do it alone.

Craig: Give the family my -- look, I've got to get to the hospital.  Are we finished here?

Margo: No, no.  Not by a long shot, Craig.

Craig: Okay.  Then while you are mistakenly focusing this investigation on me, Barbara's attacker is still at large, and the company is floundering, so if you'll excuse me --

Margo: Oh, would you cut the crap?!  Your lawyer just walked out on you.  It's just you and me now, Craig, and I'm gonna set you straight.

Craig: Well, please do.

Margo: When the D.A. gets ahold of Barbara's financial records, the one that's burned up -- the copies -- your alibi, Craig, it's gonna fall apart like a cheap suit.

Hal: You know what?  On second thought, you'd better let me handle this.

Emily: Hey, what kind of reporter do you think I am?  I found the guy.  I get to call the shots.

Hal: Emily, we gotta keep this thing low-key.  Guys that get their messages and their mail forwarded to a bar -- especially a bar like Yo's --

don't like to attract a lot of attention.  You know, one false move, this could slip through our fingers.

Emily: Not through my fingers.  I can be downright charming when I want to be, okay?

Hal: You just never want to be, is that it?

Emily: Ha, ha, ha.  Ha, ha, ha.

Hal: Hey, hey.

Emily: What?

Hal: Where do you think you're going?

Emily: The bartender.  Any mail or messages have to go through him, right?

Norville: What can I get you folks?

Emily: Albert Norville.

Norville: I don't think I know how to make one of those.

Emily: You know him?

Norville: Who's asking?  You can't be a cop.  You dress too nice to be a cop.  I know you from somewhere.  Did we ever fool around?

Emily: No.

Norville: Think it's in our future?  You can't blame a guy for trying.

Emily: Are you Albert Norville?

Norville: Like I said, who's looking.

Emily: Emily Stewart, "The Intruder." This is Hal Munson.  He's with me.

Hal: You are Mr. Norville?

Norville: I guess I am.  Next question?

Emily: Tell us everything you know about Craig Montgomery.

Norville: I was wondering when somebody'd come around asking questions. 

Simon: I care about you, just like someone would care about a -- an exotic houseplant, you know?  A high-maintenance, very-toxic, potentially lethal houseplant.

Katie: The Red Cross "cares." I risked everything to find your diamond because I love you, and you risked everything to find me for the same reason.  Why is it so difficult for you to say you love me?  Am I that horrible?

Simon: Do I have to answer that?  Do I?  All right.  Maybe in some --

some very small, guilty, loosely defined way, I do love you.

Katie: You love me!  I knew it!  Oh, Simon loves me!  I knew it!  I knew it!

Simon: Katie, back off!  You're making me --

Lucinda: Why would somebody send you that all the way from Algeria?

Lily: I have no idea.  There's a letter.

Lucinda: Yeah?  Oh, let's see.  Hmm?

[Lily reads the letter]

Lily: Oh, my God.

Lucinda: Honey, what is it?

Lily: "Dear Mom, I miss you."

Lucinda: Oh!

Lily: "Daddy and I are in Malta." This is Holden's handwriting!

Lucinda: Are you sure?

Lily: It is!  I'd know his handwriting anywhere!  Look at this!  Look at the date!  Look!

Lucinda: Oh, honey, just last week.

Lily: Last week.  They're alive.  They're alive!  I knew it!  I told everybody that they were alive.  They're out there somewhere.  They're just waiting for me to come find them.

Lucinda: Incredible!

Lily: They're alive.  I can't believe it.  They're alive!  I've got to bring them home.
