Jack: I'm sorry. Excuse me. I'm Detective Snyder, OPD. I need to confirm that a woman named Carly Tenney was ticketed for this flight.

Clerk: I'll check that for you right away.

Jack: Thank you very much. Don't worry about it, Parker. Your mommy's gonna be okay. Okay? Yeah.

Hal: Hey, Park. You waiting for Mommy?

Jack: Go see Daddy.

Hal: Boy, is she gonna be glad to see you.

Jack: What are you doing here?

Hal: Well, I just spoke to Margo. She said you were covering the case against Emily now. I just got the forensics report and I thought I'd fill you in.

Jack: It couldn't wait?

Hal: Not another minute.

Jack: Go.

Hal: Even though Emily was missing a glove, there are no prints, either on the note she left for me or on the ladder she supposedly leaned against Daniel's window.

Jack: That doesn't sound right.

Hal: To me, either.

Craig: You know, I realize this thing might not be your style, but we're here for a good cause.

Lucy: It's fine. For me, it's all about my escort.

Craig: Well, thank you for that. But, you have to realize that, that sentiment is not shared by many people in this room.

Lucy: That's okay. I never go for the popular guys anyway.

Craig: Oh, no?

Lucy: I like it better when somebody has an edge.

Barbara: Don't tell me. This can't be Lucy? Lucy, I remember when you were born. I'm sure you don't remember me. I'm Barbara Ryan. Your father used to speak about you endlessly.

Lucy: Really? Was that before you accused him of trying to kill you, or after he was proven innocent?

Barbara: Your father must be so happy to have you home. Maybe you can get him to write a big, fat check for Memorial Hospital's burn unit. That's what tonight's all about. Enjoy.

Lucy: Thanks.

Barbara: What a spirited young woman, Craig.

Craig: A chip off the old block.

Barbara: I see that. And where is your other favorite woman tonight, Carly Tenney?

Craig: I don't know. Come on. Let's go.

Barbara: If you're not worried about her now, Craig, you will be.

Tom: Barbara? Hi.

Barbara: Hi, Tom. Nice to see you.

Tom: Likewise.

Barbara: And, Daniel, I'm so glad to see you here tonight. You know, Tom, he looks just like you. I don't see a bit of Emily in him at all. And by the way, is she gonna be here with Hal? I haven't seen her.

Tom: No. Emily won't be here tonight. She's gone out of town for awhile.

Barbara: Oh, is that so? Hal must be so disappointed.

Lisa: Tom, honey, come on. You're up next.

Tom: We're gonna try to make some money.

[Barbara laughs]

Barbara: Break a leg.

Lucinda: Barbara, my darling, this has been an absolutely fabulous evening! You must be so very proud.

Barbara: Well, I am. But I really had nothing to do with the evening.

Lucinda: That's not what Rose tells me.

Barbara: Really? Well, then I'll have to set her straight when I see her, when she returns.

Lucinda: Is something funny?

Barbara: No, no, no. I'm -- I'm just in a festive mood. Do you remember those, Lucinda?

John: Why don't we go over and congratulate Nancy?

Lucinda: Well, congratulations, Barbara, again. Thank you, darling.

[Lucinda laughs] she's causing trouble for Rose. Prune face!

John: Hey!

Kim: Well, aren't you glad you went through with this thing?

Barbara: Everyone's being so supportive again.

Bob: And generous. This could be our biggest benefit yet.

Barbara: Well, even more than that. I think I've finally realized that dreams can come true -- with a little help from your friends.

Paul: Uh, excuse me. Do you remember who was sitting here?

Waitress: A pretty girl, dark-haired guy. They had a limo waiting outside.

Paul: Any idea where they went?

Waitress: Home, I hope.

Paul: Why?

Waitress: That girl wasn't exactly steady on her feet. She was trying to sober up with coffee, but it didn't seem to help. You know, some of those limos have their own bar inside.

Paul: Yeah, so I've heard. Thank you.

Adam: Molly! Wait, wait. I'm sorry. I guess I shouldn't have Abigail go to Nick's.

Molly: Adam, it's not your fault, okay. You cannot control what Abigail does. Tell me again exactly what she said before she left.

Adam: She said she wanted answers. I thought it was a good sign.

Molly: It might be. Except for any answers Nick Scudder gives her will be lies.

Adam: Molly, are you okay? You look a little pale.

Molly: I'm fine. Jake will be back from Bay City soon. So, maybe I should just wait here because he gave us till midnight. So he's not going to go anywhere, right?

Adam: Right. Well, then what?

Molly: I can't tell you.

Adam: Molly, Abigail isn't in any danger or anything, is she?

Molly: Adam, Jack's getting a court order so that I can wear a recording device when I go in and give Nick the money. Once we get him on tape, then Jack can bust him.

Adam: Maybe you won't have to do that.

Molly: What are you talking about?

Adam: Abigail's tougher than she looks. Maybe she'll just go and tell Nick exactly what she thinks of him and come here on her own.

Molly: I wouldn't count on that, Adam.

Adam: Why not?

Molly: Because Nick knows that he needs Abigail to get the money. Once he's got her there, he's not gonna let her go.

Abigail: Look, I know Molly has lied about you before. But I need to be sure. Did you tell her that you want half a million dollars to stay away from me?

Nick: No.

Abigail: Well, then why would she say that, Nick?

Nick: To make me look bad. Why else? The irony is that Molly is the one that always puts a price tag on people, not me.

Abigail: I have never seen her do that, Nick. Not once.

Nick: Okay, well, what about me? Have I ever given you any indication that money was important to me?

Abigail: No.

Nick: And when you offered me your college money, what did I say?

Abigail: You wouldn't take it.

Nick: That's right. Because I learned the hard way that money you don't make on your own will only get you into trouble. You know, I went to jail, and I learned that valuable lesson. It's not likely that I'm going to forget it.

Abigail: Nick, I'm sorry. I don't mean to make you upset.

Nick: I'm not upset. I'm -- I'm just surprised that I have to defend myself to you.

Abigail: You don't. I trust you with my life. It's just that Molly keeps telling me these stories, you know? How can you ever forgive me? I'm sorry I ever listened to her.

Nick: Well, look, it's okay. This must be very confusing for you.

Abigail: Yeah. You don't know the half of it.

Nick: No, I do. I understand. And I don't want you to ever feel like I'm forcing you into anything. Okay? Now, if you want to stay, great. But, if you want to go, then go. But always remember that I love you.

Abigail: I love you, too. And being together means everything to me.

Nick: You know what those words sound like to me? The most beautiful music ever written.

Abigail: Just telling the truth.

Nick: I know. I know. And you always do. Unlike Molly, who doesn't seem to care what she says anymore.

Abigail: She's not lying, Nick.

Nick: No, of course she is.

Abigail: No, not in the usual way. You see, she's worried about me, and everything she's saying is coming out of that.

Nick: That's not an excuse.

Abigail: I know. But it's hard to be angry with her sometimes because it just shows me how much she cares about me.

Nick: Well, what about the rest of the time?

Abigail: I want to run away from her as far as I can. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense, does it?

Nick: Well, what's happening to you happens to everyone at some point or another. You know, you get to a place where you stop belonging at home, and you don't know where else to go.

Abigail: So what do you do?

Nick: You find a new place to belong.

Abigail: Just like that?

Nick: Well, if you're lucky. Something is still stopping you, though, isn't it? You're not sure if you should take such a big chance on a guy like me.

Abigail: Sort of. I mean -- Nick, I appreciate everything that you've done for me. I feel so good when we're together. But, Nick, we haven't known each other that long. I don't want to make a mistake.

Nick: Can you feel how much I love you? I want us to leave tonight, like we planned, the two of us. Please. Please say yes.

Abigail: Oh, yes. Oh, yes. Yes, Nick. Whatever you say.

Bonnie: Excuse us. Excuse us, please. Make room for the donation box.

Jessica: Hello, hello, hello. So sorry I'm late.

Jessica: Mom.

Ben: A D.A.'s work is never done.

Jessica: Yes, well, you know how it is.

Ben: At least you made it.

Bonnie: Yes, 'cause if you hadn't, there would've been a huge, gaping hole in the program tonight, mom.

Isaac: And I would have had to sing in your place.

Bonnie: Over all our dead bodies.

Isaac: Well, I should definitely check the wine supply. By the way, I think it's time for your next performance.

Bonnie: I'm well aware of that, Isaac. Which is exactly why I've designed this program for maximum impact.

Isaac: Well, the impact has got the crowd a little -- [Isaac snoring] -- sleepy.

Ben: Crazy about each other, aren't they?

Jessica: Yeah, looks that way to me.

Bonnie: Ladies and gentlemen -- excuse me. May I have your attention, please? It is my pleasure to introduce our next performer. He is not only one of Oakdale's most prominent attorneys, but a darn fine singer in his own right, as well. Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in giving a warm welcome to the illustrious Tom Hughes and the dynamic Daniel.

[Applause]

Good night, my angel

Time to close your eyes

Save these questions for another day

I think I know what you've been asking me

I think I know what you've been trying to say

I promised I would never leave you

But you should always know wherever you may go

No matter where you are

I never will be far away

Good night, my angel

Now it's time to sleep and still so many things I want to say

Remember all the songs you sang for me

When we went sailing on an emerald bay

And like a boat out on the ocean

I'm rocking you to sleep

The water's dark and deep inside

This aching heart you'll always be a part of me

And if you sing this lullaby, then in your heart

There will always be a part of me

Susan: Any word on Emily?

Barbara: Thank God that little boy has Tom. Hal says that Emily has disappeared.

Paul: Rose? You here? Vince! I think it's time you and I finally met.

Paul: What are you doing here?

Lily: Trying to figure out what's going on.

Paul: Yeah, I think it's obvious. You and your sister scammed me.

Lily: No, that's not true.

Paul: Yeah, yeah, you pretended to be Rose. And then she takes off with Vince in the meantime. They take off in a limo from Al's, and who knows where they are right now.

Lily: Did you see them leave together?

Paul: No, I didn't. But she left this behind. And according to the waitress, she was so wasted, she could barely walk out of the place.

Lily: What? No, that's not possible. She was having champagne with Mitzi, but that was hours before. She was not drunk.

Paul: Yeah, well, she'll get her groove back, I'm sure. Those limos have bars. I'm sure her old pal, Vince, knows how to party.

Lily: That is not what happened. If he saw Vince, it was not to have a good time.

Paul: Right. Right. You know what? I think it's best if you don't try to help me anymore.

Lily: I -- I'm sorry. I know the way that this looks. But Rose and I were not plotting against you.

Paul: Where are they?

Lily: I don't know!

Paul: Would you -- stop lying to me, Lily!

Lily: Why would I lie to you, Paul? I've known you forever.

Paul: Where? Are they at your house? Are they at Lucinda's? They go back to Jersey?

Lily: First of all, you have to stop it right now, and you have to calm down.

Paul: Why?

Lily: Because Rose has been working her tail off to save your relationship. And if you don't become aware of that very soon, Rose will end up with Vince!

Paul: I've tried my best to believe that Rose knows nothing about this. But the evidence keeps stacking up.

Lily: No, you are jealous. You've said so yourself. You're having a hard time thinking clearly. I'm telling you, Rose has not seen Vince once since she came back from --

Paul: Yeah. Until tonight.

Lily: Maybe. Okay, if she saw Vince, it's just to tell him to stay out of her life. That's it!

Paul: You never considered the possibility that maybe she's lying to you, too?

Lily: No. Never. Why would you even ask me that?

Paul: I just came from her room, Lily. The drawers are open. The closet's empty. The suitcase is gone. She's in love, all right, but not with me.

Barbara: Tom, you were so wonderful. I think you're wasting your time in the courtroom.

Tom: You think so?

Barbara: I do.

Tom: Yeah, well, unfortunately, nobody can gain the audience's respect like Gram.

[Laughter]

Susan: I don't understand why Emily would stay away so long. I know you think she's gonna come back, but I'm not so sure.

Hal: Well, just in case, any family members she might turn to at a time like this?

Susan: I suppose there could be.

Hal: Well, I'll call you in the morning for names and numbers because, starting tomorrow, I'm devoting all my time to searching for Emily.

Susan: Oh, Hal, thank you so much. Thank you for not giving up.

Hal: Hey, Buckaroo, tell me something -- do you still miss hanging out with Dr. John over there? Hmm? Well, why don't we go see if maybe he's up to having you stay at his place for a day or two? What do you say? Hi.

John: Hey, hey! Parker! You enjoying the floor show? All the singing and the dancing?

Hal: You know what he was just telling me? He was telling me how much he misses hanging out with you. And you know what else? There just happens to be an opening in his schedule for the next couple of days.

John: Your old man telling me the truth? Is this your way of asking me for a favor?

Hal: More like me doing one for you, John. Because -- considering Parker's the best company you could possibly have.

John: No arguments. No arguments. Are you taking a vacation?

Hal: Well, I'm out of town on business, and Carly is not back from Paris yet. And one word of warning -- John, Parker loves his mother very much, so keep the cheap shots to yourself.

John: You don't have to tell me that.

Hal: Well, I think just the thought of Carly still feels like sandpaper on the back of your neck.

Craig: Good of you to let Barbara know where she stands.

Lucy: I couldn't help it. It's terrible what happened to her face, but she shouldn't have tried to blame it on you.

Craig: Well, thank you for the cheering section. But I don't want you fighting my battles.

Lucy: Tough.

Jack: What do you know about flights from Paris, Craig?

Craig: Jack. My daughter Lucy. Jack Snyder.

Lucy: Hello.

Jack: Pleasure.

Craig: Lullaby, I thought I saw your cousin Billy over by the bar. Would you go over and say hello?

Lucy: Are you trying to get rid of me?

Craig: I just don't want you getting bored, you know?

Lucy: I don't mind. Bye.

Craig: Jack, I don't know where Carly is. You say she's coming in tonight?

Jack: Oh, that was the plan, but it never happened. She faxed me her flight information, then never showed.

Craig: Well, it could be that fame and fortune won over from a small-town life.

La vie en Rose, oui?

Jack: You sure you had nothing to do with her not showing up?

Craig: I am sure, Jack. But if you want me to help look for her, I'd be happy to.

Jack: No. All you have to do is stay out of the way.

Billy: I saw you come in with your dad. You look great. So how have you been?

Lucy: Okay, I guess.

Billy: I'm sorry about Bryant, Lucy.

Lucy: Thanks. So dad never told me how you ended up living here. I thought you were in love with California.

Billy: Well, I just came to visit for the summer and, you know -- you know what? Never mind. It's a long story.

Lucy: It's okay. I've got time. Promise you won't tell anyone?

Billy: Okay.

Lucy: I'm gonna be living here, too.

Billy: How did that get to be a secret?

Lucy: I told my boarding school in Montega that I won't be coming back next semester. My parents still don't know.

Craig: Don't know what?

Nick: I swear on this ring that I will never leave your side again. I will never lie to you. And you will be my only love from this moment on.

Abigail: Oh, Nick. Oh! I love you.

Nick: Listen, I -- I got to go check my mailbox for something, okay? Are you gonna be all right for a couple seconds?

Abigail: Yeah.

Nick: Okay.

Abigail: Hurry back.

Nick: I will.

Abigail: I should leave a note. "Darling Nick -- here's to us, rich and happy in the coming year. Love forever, me. December 31st, 2001."

Nick: There's been a change of plans. You've got one hour to get the half a million.

Molly: Nick, you can't do that.

Nick: Look, this is my party, okay? I can do whatever I want. You've got one hour and not a minute more.

Molly: Yeah, well, I'm telling you that I don't have the money. Okay? Jake is in Bay City right now trying to get it, but he's not back yet.

Nick: Yeah, well, then get it from somewhere else, okay? Because in 60 minutes, I am gone with the money or your daughter.

Abigail: I was looking for a pen, and I found this music box.

Nick: Do you like it?

Abigail: Beautiful.

Nick: Well, it's yours. For -- for Christmas.

Abigail: Really, Nick? How come you never gave it to me?

Nick: Well, I was waiting to get it -- engraved. Do you want to know what I was going to say? It was going to say, "Abigail, you are the music that I never thought I'd hear."

Abigail: That's sweet. So I guess you didn't notice it was already engraved? "Here's to us, rich and happy in the coming year. Love forever, me."

Nick: I can explain.

Abigail: Don't even try.

Nick: No, Abigail, Abigail!

Abigail: No, don't, I've heard enough! You said I was the only woman you ever loved! And all this time, you were making plans with someone else?!

Nick: No, no. I barely even know the other person!

Abigail: You know -- how could I have been so stupid? Everything was a lie. Was everything a lie? Right from the beginning?

Nick: Not everything. I mean, I didn't have to pretend to like you. You're a nice enough of a kid.

Abigail: No.

Nick: You know, but I prefer women, okay? Not little girls who spend all their time worrying whether their mommy is gonna be angry with them about something.

Abigail: Why? Why would you want to hurt me like that?

Nick: Look, I had a job to do, okay? Don't make it personal.

Abigail: "Don't make it personal"?

Nick: Yeah. See, not everybody is fortunate enough to have money, Abigail. Nobody put aside a little trust fund for me.

Abigail: The money? This was all about the money?!

Nick: Sorry, sweetheart. You know, if it weren't for the big payoff at the end of the rainbow, I wouldn't have looked at you twice.

Lily: It doesn't matter that her clothes are gone. There is no way that Rose ran off with Vince.

Paul: Do you have another explanation?

Lily: Vince came in here, took her clothing to make it look like she ran away.

Paul: At the same time he was meeting with her at Al's? This guy is better than I thought.

Lily: I don't know how he did it. But he obviously planned it, and you're falling right into the trap.

Paul: What trap? Huh? I mean, this guy's been writing me a letter, telling me how he's gonna make a play for Rose. I hear a phone message on this answering machine talking about this hot night he has planned for her. I find her lingerie in his hotel room. And now this! She's cheating on me, Lily! I mean, what more do you need?

Lily: Have you ever seen them together?

Paul: No, I don't need to be hit over the head with it.

Lily: Do you love her? Then you cannot give up on her. I know my sister. She adores you! There's no way she's having an affair with anyone else. Rose is as confused about this as anybody. Vince was out of her life. That's the way she wanted it.

Paul: You know what? Maybe you need to take a look at these before you tell me anything else about how much Rose cares about me.

Lily: What is it?

Paul: Letters from Vince to Rose postmarked over the past few months.

Hal: Hey, Tom? I really liked your song.

Tom: Well, thank you.

Hal: Kim, have you got a minute?

Kim: Oh, sure, of course.

Hal: Hey, Parker, can you stay with Daniel for a second?

Tom: No problem. He can hang with us.

Kim: What's up?

Hal: Listen, I've got some business that's gonna take me out of town for a few days, so would you mind keeping Will at your place?

Kim: Oh, I'd be thrilled! I'd love to do it.

Hal: Well, thanks. I'll bring him.

Kim: Okay.

Barbara: Hal, I couldn't help but overhear. If you need someone to stay with Will, I'd be happy to do it.

Hal: Well, thank you, Barbara. And I'm sure that Will would really enjoy that. But you're still on the mend, and I wouldn't want --

Barbara: I'm getting stronger every day. And after tonight, I feel like I can handle anything.

Hal: Well, that's good news, Barbara. Okay, let's do it. I'll put some of his things together, and I'll drop him off in the morning.

Barbara: Well, you could do that. Or I could stay with Will at your house.

Hal: I think it's important for you and Will to start spending time together again. And I know he'd be excited having you around the house. But at the same time, Barbara, I think we have to be careful about what kind of a message we're sending. He's been through a lot.

Barbara: Hal -- I know that I've pushed him away. There's not a day that goes by that I don't regret that. But things have changed. Please let me prove to him that I can still be his mother.

Hal: I understand that, but at the same time --

Barbara: You don't trust me.

Hal: I'm -- concerned. Can we leave it at that?

Barbara: I understand. I do. It's just that don't you think it might be less disruptive for him if he's in his own home? I can be there with him. I can play his favorite games with him, watch old videos with him. And he can be there, in his home, safe, secure. And he can be himself.

Hal: You'd have to make it very clear to him that it's not permanent.

Barbara: I will. I will. I just don't know when I'll get this kind of opportunity again, and I don't think we should let fear get in our way. Let us not take advantage of this.

Hal: Could you be there first thing in the morning?

Barbara: You tell me what time you have to leave, and I'll be there.

Hal: Thanks anyway, Kim.

[Kim laughing]

Kim: Oh, I'm thrilled. Will will be ecstatic. Honey, you have a wonderful time with that son of yours.

Barbara: Thank you.

Bonnie: Okay, mom, you're up next. And I expect you to be brilliant.

Jessica: Oh, great. Nothing like a little pressure.

Bonnie: Well, the talent show was your idea. It's only fitting that you win the grand prize, okay?

Ben: You know, she has a point. And I have the checkbook to back her up.

Jessica: Now, Ben, I don't want you overdoing it. I plan to vote generously for myself.

Ben: Wait. Wait a minute. Need I remind you that you are my date this evening? And where I come from, that means I pay.

Jessica: And need I remind you that our date is supposed to be top secret? And where I come from, that means -- wish me luck.

Bonnie: Okay. Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention, please, once again? She's a singer, a district attorney and just about the only person on the program tonight that can say she used to put my hair in pigtails. But more importantly, she's stunning, charming and my mother, Jessica Griffin.

[Applause]

Jessica: Thank you. I think I've had enough champagne now. I can do this. Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like for you to come with me and travel back in time to an intimate nightclub where you might be dancing with your lover, your friend or your secret date. If you feel like dancing, hit the floor.

I've got the world on a string

sitting' on a rainbow got the string around my finger

what a world what a life I'm in love

I've got a song that I sing

I can make a rainbow anytime I move my finger

Lucky me, can't you see I'm in love

Life's a beautiful thing

As long as I hold the string,

I'd be a silly so-and-so if I should ever let it go

I've got the world on a string

Sitting' on a rainbow

Got the string around my finger

What a world what a life I'm in love

Life's a beautiful thing

Craig: May I have the honor?

Lucy: The pleasure is mine.

Craig: Oh!

Lucy: You look almost happy.

Craig: Well, I've got the most beautiful girl in the world.

Lucy: And what else?

Craig: Jack Snyder, you know that man I introduced you to? He was supposed to pick up a mutual friend of ours at the airport. Only she didn't show up.

Lucy: So where is she?

Craig: Not with Jack.

What a world what a life I'm in love

Rose: I was at the diner, right? Diner --

[Rose groans] coffee. Pauly's father. James Stenbeck. Hello? Hey! Excuse me, I need to make a phone call. Hello? Look, there's some sort of mistake here. Hey! Hey! Hello! Hey, stop this car right now!

Paul: Listen to this -- "your new job as vice-president sounds swell. That is, as long as you still have time for me. I've got all of your letters you sent me in a big pile near my bed. I read through them every night, pretending you're right next -- "

Lily: Stop! They're fake. 'Cause they were obviously planted by --

Paul: They're postmarked, Lily! Canceled stamps. I mean, she's been juggling the two of us, and she's loving it.

Lily: No. No, she wouldn't do that.

Paul: She didn't grow up like you did. You know, she was poor in a rough neighborhood. Right and wrong was whatever she got away with.

Lily: Don't you do that. She's a good person. She would never hurt anybody.

Paul: Yeah, well, you have a short memory, don't you, Lily?

Lily: How so?

Paul: When she first came to Oakdale, she convinced your whole family that she was you. If she can do that to her own sister, what makes you think she can't do this to me?

Molly: I have to go.

Adam: Where are you going?

Molly: Nick's!

Adam: I'm going with you.

Molly: No, Adam! You've got to be here to tell Jake exactly what's going on, okay?

Adam: Leave him a note. It's dangerous for you to go there alone.

Molly: I'm not afraid of Nick Scudder. Don't argue with me.

Adam: Okay. Will you be careful?

Molly: Tell that to Nick.

Nick: You remember all those nasty stories Molly told you about me? Well, multiply them by a nice, round number, and that'll give you a really good idea of what kind of person I am. But, you know, a lot of people think I'm very appealing.

Abigail: I'm getting out of here. Get your hands off me!

Nick: You're not leaving.

Abigail: You can't keep me here!

Nick: Yeah? You watch me!

Abigail: Get off me! You're not getting away with this!

Nick: Yeah? I already have, little girl. You see, I wasn't sure I could pull this off. It was complicated. A lot of things had to fall together just right. But you know what? You did great. You really helped me out, you know, turning on Molly and making her think that she was going to lose you forever. You know, I guess the appropriate thing to do here is to share some of this money with you. But who said life was fair?

Abigail: How could I ever have thought I loved you? You're twisted, and you are hateful.

Nick: Yeah, whatever. You know what? I can deal with that. But you know, there is one thing that I'm disappointed in. We are never gonna be able to spend that night on the beach in Florida. You know, under the moonlight, the waves lapping up at our feet --

Abigail: You're disgusting!

Nick: Although -- you know, now that I think about it, maybe it's not too late.

Abigail: What are you talking about?

Nick: Because we have got a lot of time before Molly gets here.

Abigail: If you lay one finger on me, I swear that I'll --

Nick: You know what you need? I think you need a drink. As a matter of fact, I think you need two. I've got a bottle here somewhere. So don't move.

Adam: Where are you, Jake?

[Phone ringing]

Molly: Hey, we're not home right now.

So please do me a favor

and leave a message.

[Machine beeps]

Abigail: Molly, it's me.

I need some help.

Please come --

Adam: Abigail, Abigail! It's me. Hello? Hello?

I've got a song that I sing

I can make a rainbow anytime I move my finger

Look at me, can't you see I'm in love

Life's a beautiful thing as long I hold the string

I'd be a silly so-and-so if I should ever let it go

I've got the world on a string

Sitting' on a rainbow got the string around my finger

What a world, what a life I'm in love

[applause]

Lucy: Answer a question.

Craig: Anything.

Lucy: Carly Tenney.

Craig: Oh! Except that.

Lucy: I just want to know about your life.

Craig: Well, it's too unseemly for a father to be talking with his daughter about romantic involvements, you know?

Lucy: So you do care about her. How much?

Craig: A lot.

Sierra: Now, I cannot believe you. I cannot believe that you would stoop so low.

Craig: What did I do?

Sierra: Your father has withdrawn you from school, without my permission or, I'm sure, yours.

Lucy: Maybe the two of you should discuss this alone.

Sierra: You know, I know that you wanted Lucy here in Oakdale with you, but pulling her out of school is no way to accomplish that.

Craig: Sierra, I didn't pull her out of school.

Sierra: Well, I can't imagine who else would. You're the only person I know that would do something like that.

Jack: I've got to go pick up that court order for the sting on Nick Scudder.

Hal: Right. Call if you need backup.

Jack: Always. See you later, Parker.

Hal: Oh, Jack -- any word from Carly?

Jack: Nothing.

Hal: Well, I know what you're going through. Tomorrow I start searching for Emily. And I'm gonna find her.

Barbara: Congratulations, James. It seems that Rose has gone the way of Carly and Emily, just as you promised. Good night! Good night. See you soon. Night, Jack. Oh, by the way, tonight will be the last night that I'll be staying at Fairwinds for awhile. At Hal's. He needs me now, and I intend to be there for him.

Lily: When Rose comes home tonight and realizes Vince has stolen her clothing and who knows what else, she's going to be very upset. It's important that you be here for her.

Paul: You expect me to sit around and wait? Like a doormat she can just wipe her feet on?

Lily: No, like a man that doesn't let his ego get in the way of something so special to him!

Paul: Come on, that's not fair. A lot of men in my position would've walked already.

Lily: Yeah, maybe. You're supposed to be different, according to Rose.

Paul: Well, it certainly worked for her, didn't it? Look, we don't even know if she's coming back.

Lily: She's coming back. She is -- I know it.

Paul: And then what? She's gonna feed more lies about where she was tonight? No way.

Lily: Just give her a chance! Hear her side of the story.

Paul: I have heard it, over and over again. And every time I start believing her, she slaps me in the face with something else that proves that she's lying to me. I'm through trusting her, Lily. And when that's gone, so am I.

Rose: Hey! Look, you stop this car right now! I need to know where you're taking me! You're working for James Stenbeck, aren't you? James Stenbeck, that's the guy who got me into this limousine. You answer me right now! I'm asking you a question! Where are you taking me?!

Molly: Abigail! Abigail, are you in there? Nick, open this door. I've come to get my daughter and take her home! Abigail! Nick, open this door now!
