Bruno: How much, huh, Katie? You better decide how much you love this guy, and you better do it quick. 'Cause if you don't do what I say, you will regret it.

Katie: No, no, no, please, Bruno, don't.

Simon: Katie!

Katie: Stop it! Stop it! Stop!

Simon: What are you doing?!

Katie: He has a gun!

Simon: I don't --

Katie: You're going to get killed! Come on, let's go! Come on, let's go!

Simon: Katie, come --

Katie: Let's just go! No! Do not follow me! He will kill you. I promise -- I've made a lot of mistakes, but I'm not going to let you get killed. Come on.

Simon: If you take her out that door, I will hunt you down!

Katie: Come on.

Bruno: Take a number.

Katie: I love you, Simon. I love you!

Simon: Katie, what --

[Door closes]

Billy: You know, we'll never have this night again. So when we make love, I want it to be slow. I want it to last so that we can remember every second of it.

Jennifer: Like I could ever forget. Hi, Billy.

Billy: How'd you know I'd be here?

Jennifer: Just knew. This was the last place we were happy. The last place where everything made sense. Seems like a million years ago now, doesn't it?

Billy: Yeah, for someone else.

Jennifer: You know, every time I think about being here with you, I just --

Billy: Don't. All right?

Jennifer: And why not?

Billy: Jen, we've already discussed this, okay? It's over.

Jennifer: No, it isn't. Because we're both here for the same reason. Because no matter how sad or hurt or angry you are, you can't get me off your mind, can you? And I know that because you haven't been able to look me in the eye since I got here. We're not over, Billy. Not by a long shot.

Hal: Come in.

Craig: Thanks.

Hal: I thought you'd be getting ready for --

Craig: How could I ever get ready to bury my son? I'll be presentable.

Hal: That's not what I meant.

Craig: Well, I wanted to see you first.

Hal: Is there something I can help you with?

Craig: Yes. I hope so. I wanted to thank you for your kind words the other day at the hospital after the accident.

Hal: You don't need to say that, Craig. We're both parents. When I think about what you're going through, I --

Craig: No, no, no. Don't, don't. It's a nightmare.

Hal: You said there's something that I can help you with?

Craig: Yeah, yes. You love your children?

Hal: I would do anything for them.

Craig: Yes, good. That's why I thought I could ask this favor of you.

Hal: What kind of a favor is it?

Craig: It's for Bryant. I need you to do something for my son.

Jake: That's jazz. Who turned you onto this?

Abigail: Um, Bryant. He loaned me this CD months ago and said it was one of his favorites. Now I'm never going to get the chance to tell him that I love it.

Molly: Oh, honey. He knows you love it. Jake, maybe I should stay here.

Abigail: No. I'm okay, okay? Just sad. Where you guys going?

Jake: Going to head over to Lucinda's. But we'll be back in time for the funeral, so we will see you in a few.

Molly: I love you. If you need anything, you call us, okay?

Abigail: I love you. Bye.

[Music stops]

[knock at the door] Nick? Hi.

Nick: You busy?

Abigail: Uh, no. I'm just -- I was here by my lonesome, doing some thinking. You just missed Molly. She walked out.

Nick: Yeah, I actually waited till they were gone.

Abigail: Why?

Nick: Well, I needed to see you alone.

Jack: Waiting for someone?

James: Jack. It's been too long.

Jack: What are you doing here, Steinbeck? Besides trespassing?

James: Fairwinds was my home, Jack. I feel secure here, nostalgic.

Jack: This isn't your house. And this family has suffered enough without having to deal with you, too.

James: Yeah, I've heard there've been some difficulties, but certainly you wouldn't imply that I would --

Jack: -- Manipulate a vulnerable woman? In a heartbeat. You're the one responsible for feeding Barbara lies. You're the one responsible for passing information to her that she, in turn, passed to Rose D'Angelo. You're awful quiet over there, James. You want to deal with me, or would you rather have a proper interrogation with one of Oakdale's finest?

James: Rose D'Angelo, huh? No, never heard of her. Friend of yours?

Jack: As a matter of fact, she is.

James: Hmm.

Jack: The same friend that Barbara has threatened to blackmail if she doesn't stay away from Paul Ryan, your son.

James: Oh, I see. Well, if there's some kind of friction between Paul and his mama over some little trollop, that's hardly any concern of mine.

Jack: Well, that's a first. What about the pictures of Carly, James? The same pictures I found strung up here in the gazebo a few nights ago? You don't have any idea how that happened, either? Am I right?

James: Carly? Carly Tenney -- now there's a name I haven't thought of -- how is the dear girl?

Jack: You don't know anything about those pictures? No prior knowledge?

James: No, Jack. I mean, I do wish I could help you. I would if I could, but I don't know what the devil you're talking about. These kind of things happened. I guess you should go out and round up the usual suspects. But, of course, in this case --

Jack: You showed up at Lucinda's on the night of the McKinnon wedding. Explain.

James: Nothing to explain, Jack. My first night in town -- I just popped by to see how the former Mrs.. Steinbeck was holding up.

Jack: Try again, James.

James: I missed Lucinda's dulcet tones? You weren't expecting to see me, were you, Jack? I mean, lightning flashed. Poor boy, you looked like you'd seen a ghost. My cigar, Jack?

Jack: You were saying?

James: You're right. One shouldn't smoke. It's bad for one's health.

Jack: I want you out of here, Steinbeck. If I find out you're making trouble for Barbara or Paul, that'll be bad for your health, too.

James: You're wrong again, Snyder. I'm not here for Barbara or Paul.

Jack: What brings you back, old man?

James: I have my reasons.

Jennifer: You don't understand. There's nothing to keep us from seeing each other now.

Billy: What are you talking about?

Jennifer: Craig knows everything. I told him.

Billy: Jen, we talked about this. If you told him about us, then --

Jennifer: Hey, hey. I didn't mean to. I didn't want to tell him everything. All I was going to tell him was that Bryant and I had been arguing that night because I was seeing another guy. And then he remembered how you seemed upset when he mentioned that night. And he put the pieces together, and -- I'm sorry, Billy. I swear, I really did try to keep you out of it.

Billy: No, it's all right. It is. You know what? Maybe it had to happen. But how are you?

Jennifer: Have you ever seen your uncle Craig angry?

Billy: Yeah.

Jennifer: Yeah, well, multiply that by about a million. Not that I'm surprised, of course. I always knew that he had it in him. I'll survive. Are you sure you're not mad at me?

Billy: No, I'm not mad at you. You know, now that all this is in the open, I'm glad. I never did like the idea of you covering for me. I just -- I feel like I got you into all of this, and there's nothing I can do to protect you, sweetheart.

Jennifer: I didn't say that, all right? What we had was beautiful, and I refuse to have regrets about something beautiful. We didn't cause that accident. Okay? And if we continue to blame ourselves and think that we deserve to be punished for a stupid, horrible twist of fate, well, then --

Billy: Jen, when he got in that car, he was frustrated with us, okay?

Jennifer: Yeah, and with his father, too. Hey, Craig went to the cottage that night to ask Bryant to lend him the money from his trust fund. Yeah. You didn't know that, did you? See? It wasn't just us on Bryant's mind. He had a lot of stuff on his mind, and he should have known that he shouldn't have gotten behind the wheel of a car and gone speeding around at night. That's how accidents end up happening, you know? Look, people will gossip. Okay? And they'll blame us. But we knew the first time we touched that we were taking a risk. We still took it, didn't we?

Billy: Yeah, but back then, we could have built a future. We could have built a future together.

Jennifer: Well, we still have a chance. And I know you want that as much as I do. Don't you?

Craig: It's about Jennifer and Billy. It's not easy for me to verbalize this to you.

Hal: Well, you've never been at a loss for words before, Craig, so why don't you just dive in?

Craig: Well, I think "liaison" is as polite a way to describe it as I can think.

Hal: Describe what?

Craig: What Jennifer and Bryant's cousin were doing.

Hal: Jennifer and Billy?

Craig: Were sleeping together behind my son's back.

Hal: Well, there's got to be some mistake.

Craig: Bryant caught them right -- right before --

Hal: I'd have known something about this, Craig.

Craig: You don't believe me?

Hal: Jennifer wouldn't do something like that. She loved Bryant.

Craig: Well, she and Billy both said they loved Bryant. I guess that's why they had to keep it secret.

Hal: That's a pretty ugly accusation, Craig.

Craig: Ask your daughter. I don't think she'd lie to you. Now, you mean it when you say you want to help?

Hal: Yeah.

Craig: Then keep Jennifer and Billy apart.

Bruno: You know, Katie, I'd pack my bags myself, but since you're so skittish today, and knowing your tendency to flee --

Katie: Would you just let me get on with my life?

Bruno: That would be a huge mistake for both of us.

Katie: Most people would say staying with me would be the biggest mistake of your life. I mean, I'm noisy, and I have a temper, and -- you haven't even seen my temper.

Bruno: Hey, I got the patience of a saint.

Katie: But I'm stubborn and willful, and I spend money like it's water.

Bruno: I'm a big boy. Bring it on.

Katie: Isn't there anything you hate about me?

Bruno: Yeah, there is.

Katie: What is it?

Bruno: That kangaroo you're hooked up with.

Katie: My husband?

Bruno: Look, Katie, a couple months with Bruno, and you're going to forget all about that guy.

Katie: I can't. I've tried. I'm in love with Simon Frasier. I'm in love with my husband, and nothing's going to change that.

Bruno: Then what were you doing with me? I mean, what was that? No, no, you know what? A couple weeks back in Jersey, it'll be good for you. A clean slate.

Katie: I could be a million miles away from Simon, okay? But he would always be in my mind and in my heart. You don't want that, do you? A Mrs.. Bruno Portolano who's never happy, who has this far-away look in her eyes because in her heart, she'll always be Mrs. Simon Frasier?

[Booming noise]

Bruno: What the -- ?

Katie: Simon!

Bruno: No, get over here. Bad move, man. Game over.

Abigail: What's this?

Nick: Open it up and find out.

Abigail: If these are outtakes from my class project -- are these bloopers from Molly's wedding?

Nick: Well, I guess you're just going to have to see for yourself.

Abigail: I hate suspense, you know that?

Nick: Oh, come on, now, that's half the fun!

Absence sweet memory you've always been around

absence sweet memory you never let me down

and it was your love that brought me to this place

to our wedding day

and I love it how that it wasn't in my plan

I love it how I know you're the only man

who would've ever thought it would work in this way

it'd be our wedding day

Abigail: Nick! That -- that was incredible. That was incredible.

Nick: You were incredible.

Abigail: You made -- you made me look so --

Nick: Beautiful? No, you did that all on your own.

Abigail: Thank you so much, Nick. That's the best gift I've gotten in such a long time.

Nick: Anyway -- I wanted you to have something to remember me by.

Abigail: What's that supposed to mean?

Nick: It means we need to say good-bye.

James: There comes a time, Jack, when a man reflects on the facets of his life that are most precious.

Jack: But all the banks are closed?

James: Things I was forced to give up too soon. I've come to visit Fairwinds. This estate was a masterpiece of mine. And I've come to grieve my son, David. You remember David, don't you, Jack?

Jack: Oh, yeah, of course I remember David. The same son you sold out to the feds, right? Same son who tried to kill my wife.

James: Oh, yes, Julia. Julia was a wonderful woman. How's she doing, Jack? How is she? Were you part of the posse that went after David?

Jack: You mean after you set him up to take the fall for you? You're not the only person who's been digging up people's pasts, James.

James: Can't trust the feds.

[Jack laughs] I was lied to. They assured me no harm would come to him.

Jack: What, you expect sympathy from me?

James: No! If you know about my role in David's unfortunate fate, you also know I was given a full pardon in return.

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, I heard.

James: So instead of harassing me, Jack, for taking a stroll down memory lane here, why don't you go out and catch some real criminals? Sorry. I forgot. You're not a cop anymore, are you? What are you? On the dole? On the take?

Jack: On my last nerve. As a concerned friend for Barbara and Paul.

James: Oh, Barbara? You know, I haven't seen or talked to either one of them.

Jack: I'll make sure it stays that way.

James: Guard dog Jack. Perfect job for you.

Jack: Well, in that case, you're on private property, James. You can walk out of here on your own steam, or this guard dog's going to take you out another way that's less dignified. The choice is yours.

James: What is it with people like you, Jack? Everything comes down to violence.

Jack: You tell me. What's it going to be, James?

James: I'll leave -- quietly. Happy now?

Jack: Not until you stay away permanently. And just in case you get any more bright ideas, I'm alerting Hal Munson and Paul that you're back in town. And I'm putting this place under surveillance. I'll make daily rounds. I'll talk to my friends in the department. Have them send a squad car over here to cruise the area all day, every day if I ask them to.

James: Is this supposed to frighten me, Jack?

Jack: Oh, no, I'm not here to frighten you, James. I'm here to protect these people.

James: These people? Paul and Barbara?

Jack: Whoever's unlucky enough to get involved with you.

James: On whose authority?

Jack: Mine. And if all else fails, if I can't do it legally, I'll do it personally. So go ahead, wander the grounds just one more time, and you'll see how much fun this guard dog will have without a badge.

James: Well, this has been very enlightening, Jack. And somewhat amusing. You take care of yourself, Jack.

Barbara: Jack, what a nice surprise!

Jack: Barbara.

Barbara: What are you doing here?

Jack: Well, I just ran into an old friend of yours out here.

Barbara: Really?

Jack: But then again, you already knew that, didn't you?

Abigail: Where are you going?

Nick: It's a long story.

Abigail: Did you quit?

Nick: No, it's nothing like that.

Abigail: So you're saying good-bye, but you're not moving, and you didn't quit. What's going on, Nick?

Nick: I knew this was a mistake. I knew that you would demand an explanation.

Abigail: I'm not letting you walk away with all my secrets without a good excuse.

Nick: It's complicated, okay?

Abigail: That's not an excuse for not telling me. We're friends, Nick, and that's not going to be over because we finished some project. We're always going to be friends.

Nick: That's the thing. I don't think we can be, or should be, friends.

Abigail: Are you serious? What's wrong with being friends? This has something to do with Molly, doesn't it?

Molly: I finished this last night, Lucinda. You said you wanted to be the first to take a look at it.

Lucinda: Oh, oh, thank you. Yes, I did, actually. "Bryant Montgomery, son of Sierra Esteban and Craig Montgomery, died of injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

Jake: Sierra said you might have some pictures that we could use?

Lucinda: Yes, his grandmother has some pictures of him. They're right over there. Help yourself. This is very sad, you know. Very short. I know it's a short life. A few pictures, a few words. It's a pity that we can't say the great strides that he had actually made in turning his life around, and the fact that many people loved him. I just -- I do think it should be beefed up.

Molly: Okay.

Lucinda: Make it more --

Molly: I will fix it. I'll fix it.

Lucinda: Okay. Thank you.

Molly: Is there anything else we can do for you?

Lucinda: Nothing.

Jake: Lucinda, when was the last time you ate?

Lucinda: You know, it's a funny thing, I don't really feel like eating that much. It doesn't seem that important right now. I'm not just grieving a young life lost. I'm grieving for my daughter. Her only son -- her only son, he's gone. And she's in hell. And look who she's turned to now for comfort!

Hal: Look, just because Jennifer and Billy have gotten to be friends --

Craig: They're more than that. Ask them.

Hal: And even supposing that any of what you're saying is true.

Craig: It's true.

Hal: If you want my help keeping those two kids apart, you can forget it.

Craig: Aren't you concerned with the way your daughter's spreading herself thin at such a young age? The reason my son is dead.

Hal: Hold it one second! Nobody is to blame for that accident! And the sooner you come to terms with that, the better, Craig. Is this any way to keep your son's memory alive? By starting some kind of post-mortem revenge?

Craig: I have to bury my son tonight, Hal. How does a man come to grips with that?

Hal: Not by attacking his friends. And not by filling your heart with hate. I know you miss him. And I know you want someone to be punished. You want someone to hurt just as much as you're hurt.

Craig: Do you know what this is like?

Hal: I understand you're in pain, Craig. I understand that.

Craig: You understand what it's like to be betrayed. The woman you planned on spending the rest of your life with flying to another man and you're the last to know. That's what Bryant was feeling when he found out. You know that better than anyone, I think.

Hal: Maybe I do.

Craig: And that's what Bryant was feeling -- angry, betrayed, alone -- because of them.

Hal: Because of an accident. Not because of my daughter. And nothing you do now can bring him back, Craig. You can't change any of it.

Craig: We'll see.

Jennifer: You know, if I can be honest about what I want, then so can you.

Billy: This is more than a question of "do I still want you or not," Jen. And at this point, it barely matters.

Jennifer: It does to me. Please, Billy, just tell me what's in your heart.

Billy: Jen, how can you ask me something like that? How could I not want you? It's just that I don't know if the rest of Oakdale is ready to see us together

Jennifer: I can be patient.

Billy: Since when?

Jennifer: Since I know you're not going to walk out on me. We'll be together one day.

Billy: You're so sure?

Jennifer: Yeah. Something good has to come out of everything that's happened, right?

Bruno: You just made your last mistake.

Simon: Katie, get the gun! Get the gun!

Katie: I don't know where it went!

Bruno: You going to send a woman to do a man's job?

Katie: I can't find it, Simon!

Simon: If that's what it takes.

Bruno: What she sees in you --

Katie: Let him go! Let him go or I'll shoot you!

Bruno: You have a gun?

Katie: Simon! Are you okay?

Simon: I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm fine. Are you all right? Are you hurt?

Katie: No, no, no. I'm fine.

Simon: You sure? He grabbed you pretty hard. Are you okay?

Katie: Oh, you were really worried about me.

Simon: Where's the gun, Bruno?

Bruno: What gun? Hey!

Simon: "What gun? What gun?" The gun. The gun, Bruno.

Katie: We looked all over this place, and we can't find it. Where is it?

Bruno: I had to give it back to my cousin, Vinny.

Katie: Are you kidding me? Do you know what you've put us through!

Bruno: Will you watch it!

Katie: I had to leave town! Me, all by myself, no one to turn to, terrified you had killed my husband!

Bruno: Watch the suit!

Katie: Terrified I was a widow! Terrified I would never see him again!

Simon: Come on. Get up, get up. What kind of wise guy are you anyway, huh?

Bruno: I never said I was a wise anything. I know people.

Simon: What? So you are connected.

Bruno: I got connections to connections. Oh, come on, I just did it because of my feelings for Katie.

Simon: For Katie -- yes, yes, my wife.

Bruno: Look, I got the picture, from the lady, not you. Listen, if I ever hear you disrespect her again, and you don't tell her you love her, I'll be back in Oakdale so fast your head will spin. You got it?

Simon: All right. You're still here? I'll tell you what. I'll tell you what, Bruno. Why don't you take your stuff and your connections and get out of here. Because I have a lot of important catching up to do -- with my wife -- if she'll have me and forgive me for being a complete idiot.

Katie: Oh, just shut up and kiss me.

Barbara: A friend of mine? I don't know what you're talking about, Jack.

Jack: No idea? You weren't expecting someone?

Barbara: No. No, I came out to get some fresh air. Is something the matter?

Jack: This is the matter, Barbara. Care to explain?

Barbara: What do you mean?

Jack: You're in possession of a police report regarding Rose D'Angelo and an incident that took place over a decade ago. Why?

Barbara: How did you get that?

Jack: From the subject of the report herself.

Barbara: I acquired that report from an anonymous source. I gave it to Rose to warn her.

Jack: Well, that's not funny. That's not what I heard from Rose.

Barbara: I'm not surprised. Did you read the report?

Jack: Rose said you tried to blackmail her.

Barbara: I tried to blackmail her?

Jack: No one -- not Hal or Craig -- feels more responsible for what happened to you in the boathouse than I do.

Barbara: Don't, Jack, don't --

Jack: And I'm not a stupid man, Barbara.

Barbara: I know you're not.

Jack: And I resent being treated like one, especially by you. Especially after everything we've gone through together. I care about you, Barbara. If you've been in contact with James Steinbeck in any way, if he's been manipulating you or passing along information --

Barbara: James? James was here?

Jack: Yeah. Right here in the gazebo, like he was waiting for you.

Barbara: Waiting for me?

Jack: That's right.

Barbara: How could you think that I would have anything to do with James Steinbeck after what he put me through all those years? I came here to be safe so I wouldn't have to worry! And now, you tell me that James Steinbeck is prowling my garden? I know nothing about this, Jack! Nothing at all!

Jack: All right, all right. How'd you get a hold of the police report?

Barbara: That's my concern. But I would think after what Rose D'Angelo did to Holden's family, you would be happy --

Jack: She's Lily's sister!

Barbara: Well then, I wonder how Lily would feel knowing her sister made her living this way.

Jack: Okay, all right, we'll play it your way. You haven't seen James? Keep it that way.

Barbara: I'll tell Paul.

Jack: I've got a better idea. I'll tell him myself. I'm sure he's not going to be too happy to hear that his prodigal father has returned.

Barbara: No. No, he won't. But we'll feel so much better knowing you're looking out for us.

Jack: I certainly am. I'm going to keep a clean eye on you, Barbara.

Barbara: What would we do without you, Jack? Damn you, James!

James: What do you mean, "damn me?" You're the one who was late.

Molly: It's hard to picture Craig Montgomery comforting anybody. And how Sierra could stand -- I'm sorry, I shouldn't be saying --

Lucinda: No, it's perfectly all right. It's perfectly all right. I've said worse than that all the time. I cannot comprehend her continued attachment to this awful man.

Jake: Craig -- Craig's the father of her children.

Lucinda: He's the bane of her existence. And every bad thing that ever happened to her, you cut it up, and it's because of Craig Montgomery.

Jake: Lucinda, you hate this guy or not, he just lost his son. And -- death changes people.

Molly: He's right. That's right. Anything is possible, Lucinda.

Lucinda: Yeah, Sierra knows that anything is possible with Craig. I mean, talk about smart women and foolish men.

Molly: Makes you wish they'd invent some sort of gadget to decode your child's brain, doesn't it?

Lucinda: I think we understand each other. That would be very nice, because when they're little, it really isn't so hard, 'cause you can see, fix things and then they grow. Soon enough, my girl, soon enough.

Abigail: It was total parental overreaction. Molly apologized all over the place. And if it's because of Molly you think that we can't be friends --

Nick: Abigail? Abigail? Abigail, listen to me, okay? It doesn't matter how many times Molly bends over backwards to apologize, or how much water has flowed under the bridge, she doesn't trust me. She never did. And she never will. And as far as --

Abigail: Well, she has no reason not to trust you!

Nick: I know that. And you know that. But the last time that she flipped out, I just -- it made me realize that it's time for me to just back off.

Abigail: Nick, that's crazy.

Nick: No, listen to me. It's for the best. And no matter what happens, it felt good to be trusted again. And I'll never forget you, Abigail. You have been a great friend to me.

Abigail: Nick, no, please don't do this?!

Nick: Look, it is better this way. Trust me!

Abigail: Nick -- how can this be better? We're friends. You know, we click. You know me. I like you.

Nick: I like you, too.

Abigail: I -- I feel closer to you than I do to most people.

Nick: That's the problem. See, if we get any closer, I -- I'm going to say things.

Abigail: What things?

Nick: Like how I really feel about you.

Abigail: Don't I get a say in this? Nick?

Nick: I got to go.

Abigail: Nick.

Nick: I got to go.

Molly: All this talk about Sierra has made me think about -- about Vicky.

Jake: Why?

Molly: 'Cause it must be the hardest thing in the world to realize that you're never going to get to see your children grow up. You know, I don't know what I'd do without Bridget, Michelle and Abigail.

Jake: There's nothing -- nothing is going to happen to the girls.

Molly: Because I already missed so much time with her already.

Jake: I promise.

Molly: Honey, do you know how much I love you? And there's nothing in the world I wouldn't do for you.

Abigail: Oh, nothing? Well, then tell me why you hate Nick Scudder so much.

Billy: I'll be thinking about you. Even though we won't be together at the funeral.

Jennifer: Well, I know I can get through anything -- well, as long as I have you.

Billy: And then I guess you can get through anything.

Jennifer: Bye.

Billy: Uncle Craig, what are you doing here?

Craig: Looking for you. Would you like to come with Sierra and me to the funeral tonight?

Billy: No. I don't want to impose or anything.

Craig: No, you're family. Family. You know, thank God that's all we have, right?

Billy: Uncle Craig --

Craig: Yes.

Billy: Jennifer told me she told you.

Craig: She did.

Billy: About everything the night of the accident. I'm really sorry about what happened when Bryant died.

Craig: I think I know.

Billy: I loved him like a brother. I just hope one day you can forgive me.

Craig: It was an accident, right? Nothing more.

Billy: I just wish there was something I could do.

Craig: Just knowing you're in town is good for me, it's like a little piece of Bryant is still alive.

Billy: Well, I'll be here for you as long as you need me. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you or aunt Sierra.

Craig: Oh, you don't know how I needed to hear that.

Simon: I missed you so much.

Katie: I missed you, too.

Simon: When you ran off, I realized I didn't want -- I just couldn't -- I couldn't be without you.

Katie: Simon --

Simon: And I'm never going to take you for granted again. Okay? Everything is going to be different from now on.

Katie: I know.

Simon: I love you.

Katie: Say it again.

Simon: I love you. I adore you.

Katie: Wait, wait, wait. Wait!

Simon: What, what's wrong? What's wrong?

Katie: We can't do this.

Simon: Yes we can, we have to. It would be illegal if we didn't do this.

Katie: Not yet.

Simon: Katie, it's been a long year -- a very long and difficult year.

Katie: I know, it's just -- when the time is right.

Simon: Right? Right now feels pretty darned right, doesn't it? Do you want to wait until we get back to our own room -- more time, more privacy?

Katie: That's not quite it.

Simon: Tell me. Anything to make tonight unforgettable for you. Just tell me.

Katie: I can't make love to you.

Barbara: I have nothing to say to you, James!

James: You're not going to let Jack Snyder ruin our beautiful friendship, are you?

Barbara: We have no friendship! If Paul finds out that I got that report about Rose --

James: Yeah, he'll ask questions. You'll say nothing.

Barbara: I never should've let you back into my life. If Paul finds out that I was the one and if I lose my son --

James: I just love it when you're angry.

Barbara: Get out! Get off of my property and get out of my life!

James: You'll need me again, Barbara. And when you do, I'll be right here, whether you like it or not.
