Jennifer: Bryant, I didn't know you were back. You've been working out?

Bryant: Yeah, I went for a run, too.

Jennifer: What are you training for, the biathlon?

Bryant: Just trying to burn off some energy.

Jennifer: What time is it anyway? Oh, my gosh, I -- you must think I'm so lazy. I can't believe it's so late. Wait. We said the reason we were moving in together was so we could make own rules, right?

Bryant: Yeah, right.

Jennifer: Oh, no more getting up at dawn to get Will off to school. No more housework, no more schoolwork, no more yelling parents. Oh, I am finally free! What's wrong? Oh, I know I said I'd make you dinner tonight, but tomorrow I'll get things a little bit more organized, okay?

Bryant: It's not how long you slept, Jen. It's where.

Sierra: Ah, the almighty dollar. The root of all evil.

Craig: A necessary evil. It's good to see you, Sierra.

Sierra: I came to say good-bye. I'm headed back to Montega. I really thought that maybe I'd hear from you after the trial.

Craig: No, I was going to call you. I just -- the way you supported me in the trial with my back against the wall -- and now, I'm a free man.

Sierra: I supported you because I believed that you were innocent.

Craig: Of attempted murder, but there was more, huh?

Sierra: Is this how we did it when we were married? You would transgress, then confess, then I would scold you.

[Craig laughs]

Craig: And I would be absolved.

Sierra: I don't want to do that anymore. I have to say that there was a moment when those pictures became public that I thought, "not again." But what am I going to do after all these years, draw another line in the sand? I'm running out of beach.

Craig: That's fair enough.

Sierra: Craig --

Craig: I just wanted to thank you. You've been a rare friend throughout this whole deal, and more than that --

Sierra: I was good in bed?

Craig: Well, I wasn't going to say that, but since you bring it up -- and if I led you on --

Sierra: Listen, I'm a big girl. I am not sorry. It was fun. But listen, I need something from you.

Craig: Ask me. What?

Sierra: I want you to apologize to Bryant.

Craig: Please, Sierra, we've been through this.

Sierra: No, no, we haven't. We have discussed how to deal with Bryant the boy, but he is not a boy anymore. He is a man.

Carly: So that's a single for two nights, and maybe a third if I decide -- no. No, I won't be needing a Jacuzzi. But thank you. Not that kind of trip.

Carly: Oh, hey, who do you have there? It's Mr. Snuffle-uffle. Hello, Mr. Snuffle-uffle.


[In puppet voice]  "Hello, Carly. Hello, Parker. How are you today? Are you a little sad today? Are you sad because your mommy's leaving town for a few days?" Don't be too sad, buddy. I'm gonna go, and I'm gonna find us a new place to live, some place where we can be together almost all the time. Won't that be wonderful? And just for the next few days, you'll stay with your daddy, and he always makes things pretty fun, doesn't he? Okay. So don't worry, all right? Everything is gonna be just fine. I promise you, mommy's going to make everything just fine.

Emily: We've been here five whole minutes, and you haven't said one word about my power suit.

Hal: It's very powerful.

Emily: Powerful enough for my meeting with the mightiest Bureau Chief of Reuters news service?

Hal: Emily, congratulations. That's great.

Emily: Thanks. Thanks. They want me to reprint all my articles on the Montgomery trial. And get this -- they may want me to do an in-depth series on how we found the real culprit. I mean, can you believe this? I know I'm Editor-in-Chief and all, but that doesn't mean I can't play reporter every now and then, right? And I've already figured out the angle. You -- grumpy ex-cop. Me -- young, pretty newshound.

Hal: I thought I was the pretty, young newshound.

Emily: Okay, well, I may have to collaborate with you, of course. You know, pick your brain about some of the details I've forgotten.

Hal: As long as I'm an unnamed source.

Emily: No way. Forget about it. You're the other half of the dynamic duo. Come on. This could make you a celebrity.

Hal: I'll pass, Emily. Getting my old job back is good enough for me. Besides, I've read about how these things work. Next thing you know, they'll want to make a miniseries of the whole story, and then they'll start fighting over who's sexy enough to play me.

Emily: Good. All right, well, so who do you see to play me? I was thinking Sharon stone or, I don't know, Gwyneth if she can toughen up a bit, but I don't know. Who do you see?

Hal: No one but you.

Mary: Okay, run along girls now. Kiss daddy good-bye. Okay, but don't mess up his --

[Papers fly everywhere]

Jake: Come here! Come here! Come here!

Mary: McKinnon, I'm sorry.

Jake: Oh, that's okay. I was just judging the paper's "What Labor Day means to me" essay contest. That's right. But this is much more entertaining.

Mary: Oh, is this one of the essays? "NFL seems stabile but problems remain."

Jake: Okay, all right, you got me. You got me.

Mary: I never tell.

Molly: Mary, I've got their bathing suits in case the sprinklers are on at the park. Oh, you've the bathing suits already. Towels? All right, and what about their --

Mary: Ah, got their rubber shoes.

Molly: Okay, well, what about snacks, and what about juice paks and audio cassettes in case they want to sing-a-long in the car?

Mary: Uh-huh, and a jar of bubbles and extra diapers and some picture books, just in case.

Jake: Yeah, that's gonna hold 'em for about two minutes.

Molly: Okay, well, what about the shovels and pails?

Mary: They'll be okay. They'll be fine. It's not like it's the first time the twins and I have gone to the park.

Molly: Okay.

Mary: We're old mates.

Molly: You know, and I promised myself I wasn't gonna be one of those kinds of mothers, but --

Mary: I know.

Molly: Hey, you guys. Michele, Bridget, I'm gonna get you. I'm gonna give you a big hug and kiss good-bye.

Mary: Don't you worry about Bridget and Michelle. They'll be safe with me. Come on, now, lassies, off we go. And who remembers the chorus of "Sweet Molly Malone"?

Jake: Come on.

Mary: Now, you hurry off to the park.  

[Mary singing] Alive, alive, oh alive, alive, oh  crying cockles and muscles alive, alive, oh

Jake: Good-bye. Hey. Hey, you okay?

Molly: Fine. It's just -- you know, this place is such a wreck.

Jake: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Sit down, sit down. I'll take care of the toys and everything. What, does this have to do with the Nick Scudder thing or what?

Molly: I don't really know. I think maybe, um, empty nest syndrome?

Characters shown (in order): Holden Snyder with Lily Walsh Snyder, Jack Snyder, Carly Tenney, Lucinda Walsh, Dr. Ben Harris, Miss Jennifer Munson, Dr. Bob Hughes with Kim Hughes, Simon Frasier, Jake McKinnon, Lisa Grimaldi, Craig Montgomery, and Miss Molly Conlan.

Abigail: Can't wait till Molly sees that we're making movies.


[In a snooty voice] Films, baby.  This is art, okay?

[Abigail laughs]

Abigail: Oh, I'm sorry.  Yeah, right.  Art.

Adam: Look, this is your chance to make cinema history. Just think of this as your screen test.

Abigail: All right. What do you want me to do?

Adam: Anything except Scarlett O'Hara swearing she'll never go hungry again.

Abigail: Oh.

Jake: Empty nest, huh?

Molly: Abigail has gone off to college.

Jake: Oakdale U. She's commuting. So why don't you try again?

Molly: The twins are growing up.

Jake: You're right. You know, they're only taking one nap instead of two, but I think if we try really hard, we could make a couple more.

Molly: You know, maybe we should hold off on that, Jake.

Jake: Okay. What's really bothering you,

Molly: If I tell you, you're gonna call me "fiercely intense" again.

Jake: I like that. I like that you're passionate. What is this, about the bogus wedding invitation again?

Molly: Oh, no, no, no. No, I loved -- I love all my friends getting a picture of you standing next to my mugshot. In fact, I like it so much, maybe I'll submit it to "Modern Bride."

Jake: All of our friends know that that is some kind of weird joke, and if I'm wrong, and Nick Scudder has something to do with it, I can guarantee you --

Molly: It's not that. Not only that.

Jake: What is it then?

Molly: I didn't get a chance to tell you, but I went by to see Carly earlier, and she told me she's leaving town. She's moving to Chicago.

Jake: That is bad news.

Molly: God, I wish I could just rip Craig Montgomery's head off! I mean, if he hadn't done this to her, she'd never even think of leaving town. She would never.

Jake: Craig know about this?

Molly: I'm not sure.

Jake: Well, you know, maybe if he agrees to stay away from Carly, she won't have to leave town. You want me to go talk to him?

Molly: No. No, but thank you. You know what? I was all set to do that myself. I just don't -- I really hate to go behind Carly's back.

Jake: Well, somebody needs to, because Craig is probably the only guy that can make things right.

Craig: A man, Bryant?

Sierra: Face it, Craig. He's all grown up. He has his own money now. He's living with the girl that he loves.

Craig: That doesn't make him a man.

Sierra: He came up to you after the trial and hugged you. He made the first move, even with all this animosity. To me, that is an action of an adult.

Craig: A hug doesn't make a relationship, sierra. Come on.

Sierra: Then why don't you call him and see if you can change his mind?

Craig: I have. I have numerous times.

Sierra: Since the trial?

Craig: What am I gonna say that I haven't said before?

Sierra: How about, "Hello, this is your dad. How would you like to get together for a drink sometime?"

Craig: I think Bryant is intent upon showing me that he's doing just fine without me.

Sierra: Well, that was fine when he was living in Lucinda's pool house, but his life has changed now, and he is going to need someone from the older generation to check up on him once in a while. He still needs advice.

Craig: So what am I gonna say to him?

Sierra: Well, maybe now you're ready to be honest with him, and you can say, "I have made a few mistakes. I've had some difficult lessons, but I've learned a thing or two."

Craig: What am I going to do without you around me?

Sierra: Maybe it's time for you to find somebody else --

[Craig laughs] like Carly, maybe.

Craig: Carly doesn't want me around.

Sierra: How do you know that?

Craig: She pushed me out of the door.

Sierra: When?

Craig: Right after the trial. I went over to her house to tell her I cared for her. I told her I loved her.

Sierra: Well, after she was publicly humiliated in this trial, and somebody almost killed her, that's the moment that you decide to tell her that you love her? I wonder, who is more mature here, you or Bryant?

Jennifer: We've been over this before, Bryant. You said I could take as much time as I needed to.

Bryant: And I meant that, Jen. It's just -- you are a beautiful woman, and it's very hard. You having second thoughts about us living together?

Jennifer: No.

Bryant: Then maybe you just want us to be roommates?

Jennifer: No!

Bryant: Okay. So then, you're happy we're living together. You want us to be lovers, but something's holding you back. What is it? Just tell me.

Jennifer: I don't know.

Bryant: You live with me. You talk about us having a future together, but you won't do the one thing that's gonna make this real.

Jennifer: So sex is what will make this real?

Bryant: You know what I mean. It's about us getting closer, taking the next step in our relationship.

Jennifer: I have a right to say no.

Bryant: And I've always respected that, haven't I? No other guy would have --

Jennifer: No other guy would have what, put up with me this long? Thanks a lot, Bryant. You know, you really know how to win a girl over.

Bryant: Jen, I didn't mean that. Jen, look, you know I love you, but this walking on eggshells is driving me crazy.

Jennifer: You want to talk? Fine. Let's talk.

Emily: Hal. Hal, I don't quite know what to say.

Hal: That really came out wrong. I didn't mean it like that.

Emily: No, it's just that, you know, I was just saying that the name Emily Stewart I don't think is gonna be what they call a "Big box office draw."

Hal: And what I meant to say that is I don't think that you should be sharing the spotlight with anybody. I mean, you've worked very hard for this, and I think that you should enjoy it, that's all.

Emily: I am. I mean, I really am! A major news agency wants to talk to me -- me! I mean, a few weeks ago, they wouldn't even return my phone calls.

Hal: Right. Now, they've finally realized that you are one hell of a journalist.

Emily: Yeah, thanks to you. You're the one who inspired me to go after the truth.

Hal: I was just being a cop. I was just using my instincts. And you've got them, too, you know -- those same instincts.

Emily: Yeah? Thanks.

Hal: Cops and investigative reporters -- when it comes to sniffing out the truth, we're like two dogs going after the same bone.

Emily: Oh, that's an -- that's an image.

Hal: Unconventional maybe, but it worked. You know, it's too bad we couldn't hire you to work for us down at the station. We could use more types more like you.

Emily: Why, Hal, are you deputizing me?

Hal: Hey, stranger things have happened. You know, if you would have told me six months ago at you and I would be palling around together, I would have said that you were crazy, and yet, here we are.

Emily: Yeah, here we are.

Hal: But soon, we'll be going back to our respective corners. You'll be sticking your nose into department business, and I'll be kicking you out on your -- power suit.

Emily: Just like old times.

Hal: Just like old times.

Emily: Well, I guess this is the end of a wonderful partnership, huh?

Hal: I'm not a big fan of endings. You know, just because we're back on opposite sides of the ring here doesn't mean we can't --

Emily: Yeah?

Hal: -- Meet for coffee or something every once in awhile.

Emily: Yeah, sure, we can meet for coffee. Why not?

[Parker comes up to his dad]

Hal: Hey, chief.

Emily: Hey.

Hal: What are you doing here, huh? What are you doing here?

Emily: I think this is my cue to leave.

Carly: No, please, don't -- don't leave because of me. Really. It's true that you're not exactly my favorite person. I think that photograph of Jack and me on your cover of your paper was probably one of the worst things you've ever done. But I realize that I probably owe you, too. I mean, the D.A. was ready to make me Craig's accomplice, and you and Hal got me off the hook. I know that you just did it for a story, but i'd be kind of stupid if I weren't grateful.

Emily: Wow! I never thought I'd see the day. I wish I had that on tape.

Carly: You see -- you see, this is why we could never be friends.

Emily: I'm just kidding. I'm really kidding. I really appreciate what you just said. But, you know, a couple of blonde floozies like us be friends? Are you kidding me? We'd set the whole town talking.

Carly: Speaking of which, do you think that I could have a word with you, Hal?

Emily: Would you mind if I bought Parker a banana split over there? What do you think? Yeah?

Hal: You want some ice cream?

Carly: Sounds good.

Emily: Come on.  And you, kid. Let's go, come on. You sit here.

Hal: So, did you hear about Jack's suspension?

Carly: No. How's he taking that?

Hal: Why don't you go ask him yourself? I'm sure he'd like to see you.

Carly: No. I think it's best if Jack and I just stay clear of each other for now. There are some things that I cannot help him with no matter how much I love him. Besides which, my number one priority from now on is Parker.

Hal: Carly, if it's a matter of money --

Carly: It isn't. It's not. You've done your part. It's time for me to do my part. I just need you to watch him for a few days while I go to Chicago so I can scout out an apartment and maybe a job. I know you told me to really think about this before I make this kind of decision, and I have thought about it.

Hal: I understand. You want to do the right thing, and I want to help you in any way I can.

Carly: Okay. And if I do move to Chicago, I meant what I said. You can see Parker anytime you want. I will be so flexible you won't even believe it. And I know it's asking an awful lot, Hal.

Hal: We'll work it out. Just as long as you come visit every once awhile, too.

Carly: I promise. So, how are things with Nelly Bly over there?

Hal: Excuse me?

Carly: Nelly Bly, the first female investigative reporter. I heard she was quite a handful.

Hal: I know who Nelly Bly was. I don't know what the yell you're talking about.

[Carly laughs]

Carly: Oh, please, don't play dumb, Hal. Can't you see that Emily is gaga for you?

Craig: Okay, maybe my timing with Carly was a little off.

Sierra: How 'bout unbelievably bad? But you're lucky. She'll forgive you.

Craig: And where did you get that idea?

Sierra: Trust me. I'm a woman.

Craig: Oh, I trust you. So what should I do?

Sierra: Nothing. Just give her some space. Let her know that you are there for her if she needs somebody. Be a good friend. Then, when she's ready to reach out to somebody, there you'll be.

Craig: Patience.

Sierra: And be subtle.

Craig: Ah, yes, subtlety.

Sierra: Can you believe that I am talking to you about your love life?

Craig: I'm going to miss you, sierra.

Sierra: Oh, don't worry. I'll be back when the Indians are surrounding your wagon again.

Craig: Maybe after this they won't leave the wagon train so often.

Sierra: Oh, I hope so. You know how you can prove it? Make amends with Bryant, and then move on to Carly. Try to stay out of trouble for a few months, would you, because I do have a country to run. I'll see you later.

[Phone rings]

[Carly’s Answering machine]

Carly: We're not here right now, but you can leave us a message.  

[Machine beeps]

Jennifer: You say it's never the right time for me. Well, it has been, only you weren't ready.

Bryant: Jen, what are you talking about?

Jennifer: What about the night after my mother's so-called "wedding" at the Lakeview? I practically begged you.

Bryant: You were in my father's bathtub, and you were drunk. You cannot chalk this all up to bad timing. There is something else going on at the bottom of this, something you're not facing up to.

Jennifer: Oh, so now you're going to psychoanalyze me, as if you've always had it together.

Bryant: That is not what I'm saying.

Jennifer: You know, all my friends said that I shouldn't date you because didn't have a job, but I defended you. I didn't try to send you to a shrink.

Bryant: That is not what I'm doing.

Jennifer: I'll know when it's right, okay? I'll know in here.

Bryant: You know, Jennifer, that was fine when you were in high school, but it's not good enough when you're living with the man you love, and you won't let him touch you!

Abigail: Okay, so what do you want, Angelina Jolie in "Tomb Raider"? 

Molly: What's going on here?

Abigail: Yeah, we're just -- he's trying to convince me to major in Communications.

Jake: Yes, but what exactly is it through your

[Imitating Abigail] “Uh, Uh" you're trying to communicate?

Adam: Well, we signed up for filmmaking. In fact, she just had her first screen test. Do you have a comment on that, sir?

Jake: I would just like to say that if she needs an agent, I'm available -- for 20%.

Abigail: 20%?

Jake: You can't get a better deal than that. You can't.

Abigail: That's outrageous!

Jake: "Outrageous!"

Abigail: Ah!

Jake: Agent.

Molly: So what kind of film are you making here?

Abigail: Well, we each have to make a movie -- film, sorry, Adam -- by the end of the semester on video, of course.

Adam: Yeah. Yeah. Actually, I'm doing the mini-documentary on the remaining days at the country club pool. It's about how, you know, Generation Y -- they all have to pack up and go off to college, and they're gonna miss all their old friends. What are you doing?

Jake: Are you trying to tell me that people are going to be packing up their bikinis and putting them in storage for wintertime?

Molly: I think Adam's referring to the bittersweet emotions of a very special time.

Abigail: Exactly.

Adam: Exactly.

Jake: Bittersweet. I knew that. But if you need any help with the camera work, I'll be right there.

Molly: So what are you going to do with yours, huh?

Abigail: Mine's a little bit more serious, kind of a series of interviews.

Molly: What about?

Abigail: I want to talk to kids who've lost a parent, look at the different ways that they handle grief. I know what that's like, and maybe it's something that could help other people. I mean, it's not going to be easy for me, but that's what's important, right? Bad idea?

Molly: No, I think it could be -- I think it's a great topic, honey. You know, I just remembered something that I have to do. I'll be back. I'm going to take your advice.

Jake: Okay.

Abigail: Is everything okay with Molly?

Jake: She's just got a couple things going on at work. Everything's going to be fine.


Abigail: I’ll get it.

Abigail: How do you know I'm Molly's daughter?

Nick: I saw you down at WOAK.

Abigail: Oh, I thought you looked familiar. You work with Molly?

Nick: Yeah, I'm Nick Scudder.

Jake: That's okay, Abigail. I'll take care of this.

Abigail: Nice meeting you, Nick.

Nick: Yeah, you, too.

Jake: Let me tell you something, my friend. This is really a bad place to show up unannounced.

Nick: Look, I'm not here to cause trouble, all right? That's why I waited for Molly to go.

Jake: What are you talking -- hanging out in my hallway?

Nick: Only because I know Molly doesn't want to see me. Look, the reason why I'm here is that I dug up some information I thought you'd be interested in. I found out who's been harassing Molly.

Jake: This better be for real, Nick.

Nick: It is. It is. Molly threw the invitation away, and I took it, and I traced it to a stationery store, okay? Here's the name. Please, go check it out for yourself. They'll tell you who bought the invitations. I'm just sorry that I happened to show up when all of this was going on, but at least now I can prove that I'm not this jerk that Molly thinks I am. All right?

Jake: Guys, I'll be back in a couple minutes, okay?

Adam: Now, that is the makings of a great film.

Craig: Molly? What are you doing here? Sit down.

Molly: Looking for you.

Craig: Oh, please. I'm honored.

Molly: You know my daughter, Abigail, don't you, Craig?

Craig: Well, not personally.

Molly: You know, she's just lost her father and her stepbrother. Lily's holding out hope that Holden and Luke were going to be found, but it really isn't very likely.

Craig: I know.

Molly: Okay, you know, this -- my daughter has experienced way too much loss for someone of her age, and I'll be damned if I'm going to sit here and let her experience anymore loss because of you.  Craig: What are you talking about?

Molly: I'm talking about Carly.

Craig: Carly? What's wrong? Is she hurt or something?

Molly: No, she's fine. Well, no, no, actually, she's not fine. Do you have any idea that she's planning on leaving Oakdale?

Craig: No, I had no idea. Where is she planning on going?

Molly: Chicago, Craig. She's looking for a job, and if it works out, she's moving there.

Craig: What's in Chicago?

Molly: A whole city full of people that don't treat her like garbage.

Craig: Oh, that's absurd. The uproar from this trial will settle.

Molly: No, it won't, Craig. Not for Carly it's not going to settle, so she's packing up and she's moving -- my cousin, my very best friend. Do you know how much it's going to hurt losing her? And it's all your fault.

Carly: Starry-eyed. Crazy for you. Over the moon.

Hal: Carly, come on. Emily and I just work together, and now that's over anyway.

Carly: Oh, what a shame. I know love when I see it.

Hal: Oh, now it's "love"?

Carly: Could be. You won't know unless you find out. So why don't you ask her out on a date? What have you got to lose?

Hal: Ask her out? What am I, in high school now?

Carly: I know you'd rather beat her over the head with a club, but that's sort of frowned upon here in the 21st century. What? Why are you making that face? You're supposed to be flattered, stupid. You're thinking about Barbara, aren't you? Oh, Hal. And how many times have the two of you been married, anyway? Six? Seven?

Hal: Carly, believe it or not, you're not the first person to have made that joke.

Carly: Well, I don't -- I don't think it's really a joke, actually. How many times can you tie the knot before the rope snaps, huh? Listen, I know that you don't want to hear this, but I think it's very possible that Barbara will not come back to you. Things are different now. And you might want to accept that. And besides, why give up something real for something that might never happen?

Emily: Come on, let's go. Hey, come on, let's go back to your mommy.

Hal: Hey, didn't you ever hear of a spoon?

Emily: Hey, listen, tell your daddy it's so much more fun to eat a banana split when you pick off all the nuts first, right?

Carly: I think you are just as sweet without all that chocolate. All right, sweet pea, now you promise -- come here. You promise me that you'll be a good boy, all right? And I'll see you in a few days. Okay? All right. And you, remember what I said?

Emily: So what was that all about, if I'm not getting too personal?

Hal: Hmm? Oh, Carly just gave me some food for thought.

Emily: Oh. Well, now that I've spoiled Parker's appetite for the foreseeable future, I guess I should get going. See you around, choco-lips.

Hal: Emily, hold on. I guess I'm not ready to say good-bye just yet.

Jennifer: You ever stop and think that maybe I'm scared?

Bryant: Jen, I know you're scared. I'm scared, too.

Jennifer: I'm scared that -- because I'm afraid that I'll need you too much.

Bryant: I want you to need me. I need you, too.

Jennifer: No, not like the way I'm starting to feel right now. It's -- that's bottomless. It's just -- everything is so messed up in my life right now, and the one thing I know I have -- the one thing I know I need is you, and you're all I have. And I'm afraid that if we do have sex then I'd be giving you everything. Do you understand what I'm saying?

Bryant: I don't mean to be insensitive, but I think you're making too much of this. If we make love, it's gonna make you feel better, not worse. We'll be in a stronger, more mature place. Look, I know making love for the first time can make you feel like you're falling off a cliff, but I promise you, we'll catch each other when we fall.

Jennifer: Bryant, no! I can't. I can't do this right now.

Craig: It's my fault she's planning on leaving town?

Molly: She is the only person that stood by you, Craig. When she was on that stand, she got -- swore to the whole town that you were not a killer, okay? And now the trial's over, and she's the one that's branded with the scarlet letter, just because you couldn't keep your grubby little lips off of her.

Craig: Well, I may have led off, but she kissed back.

Molly: Get over yourself, Craig. Carly loves Jack, and you messed up that for her, too. You know what? The whole world is turning their backs on her, and she has nothing to support Parker with.

Craig: Well, I'd do anything for Carly, you know.

Molly: Prove it.

Craig: The last time I saw her, she shut the door in my face.

Molly: Well, you know what? You need to try again. You gotta try to get her a job, get her back on her feet. You're the only one that can do this, and you owe her like you've never owed anybody.

Hal: So the thing is, I just didn't want to say good-bye without telling you that --

Emily: What?

Hal: This thing with Barbara the last few months -- you were just great. I mean, a couple of times I almost came unglued, and yet, there you were. You were talking to me, you were helping me at home.

Emily: Hal, Hal, I'm sorry to interrupt, but you've already thanked me for all that. Is this gonna go anywhere? Because I've got to go. I've got me meeting with Reuters, remember?

Hal: You're just not gonna make this easy for me.

Emily: Make what easy? What are you trying to say?

Hal: Oh, criminy. I was never any good at this. I never was. Do you wanna have dinner with me sometime?

Emily: Yeah. Yeah, of course. We can meet for a burger every now and then. Sure.

Hal: No, I meant if you'd like a real dinner, a fancy dinner at a nice restaurant, no kids.

Emily: Wait, wait. Let me get this straight. Did you just ask me out on a date?

Hal: So the thing is, I just . . . Well, if you have to put a name on it, yeah, I guess it's a date.

Emily: A date date? Like where I'm a girl, and you're a boy, and we get all spruced up and --

Hal: I get spruced up. You always look okay.

[Emily laughs]

Emily: I get compliments, too, huh?

Hal: Yeah, every once in a while, you do.

[Emily sighs]  So -- are you gonna accept or what?

Emily: What about Barbara?

Hal: I love Barbara, Emily. I will probably always love Barbara, but lately, she has told me that she has -- that she just does not belong to me anymore, and maybe it's time I just took that to heart.

Emily: You sure you're ready?

Hal: I'm sure.

Emily: I gotta get going. Oh, by the way -- I accept. Call me, Hal.

Hal: What do you say, buckaroo? You wanna go for a ride in the country? It's turning into a pretty nice afternoon. Yeah.

Jennifer: Bryant, please, say something!

Bryant: You want me to say something? Okay, I'll say this. I cannot believe you did it again. And you know what? I am tired of it. So take these. Do you what you want to do tonight, because I'm not gonna be here!

Jennifer: Bryant?!

[Jennifer groans]

[Knock at the door]

Carly: Who is it?

Craig: Carly, it's Craig. Open up.

Carly: Nobody's home.

[Knock at door] Well, that's just great. Just let everybody know you're here, okay? That nosy neighbor is probably already making a deposition! What is it you want, Craig?

Craig: I want you to stay, Carly.

Jake: Molly?! Molly?! Molly?!

Molly: What's wrong?

Jake: Okay, just stay calm. Where -- where are the kids?

Molly: They're where they usually are when we're --

Jake: Where are the kids?

Molly: They're still at the park, Jake, with Mary. What's going on? You're scaring me.

Jake: Nick Scudder showed up here today.

Molly: Oh, God.

Jake: No, no. No, it's not Nick that we need to be worried about.

Molly: Well, then, what?

Jake: Yeah, he gave me the name of a stationery store, the one that printed up the phony invitations with the mug shots. Molly, it's Mary.

Molly: What is Mary?

Jake: It is Mary. Mary is the one who printed up those bogus invitations.

Molly: Mary? Our Mary?
