Craig: No, that's Tenney. T-e-n-n-e-y. Carly is the first name.

Lucy: He's really worried about Carly.

Simon: Well, it's just his way of missing her.

Lucy: You're right. He was always calling me at school to yell at me about something, but I knew it was just because he missed me. He could, you know, never admit it. It's not like you.

Simon: Not like me what?

Lucy: It's okay. Katie told me all about it, how it was love at first sight and how you chased her to that desert island. I think that is so evolved.

[Simon laughs]

Simon: Well, I tell you what. That story has certainly evolved. But yeah, you're right. I love her with all my heart. Do you want to tell me where she went?

Lucy: Her hat, remember? She left it --

Simon: Lucy, Lucy, I've never seen Katie wear a hat, so where did she go?

Dahlia: Okay. Ready to start class?

Katie: Now?

Dahlia: Well, I think the ladies will be warmed up in about a minute. Is your husband coming?

Katie: Simon? No. I mean, this is kind of my thing, you know? And my niece just got into town.

Dahlia: She would love this. Aunt Katie on her way to becoming a star? You nail this class, and we can make your video. Why don't you give her a call?

Katie: Oh, they have their day planned, I hope. Besides, it looks like I have a big enough audience as it is.

Dahlia: Butterflies?

Katie: Oh, one or two -- or three or four.

Dahlia: Not to worry. Well, it looks like the ladies are ready. Good luck.

Katie: Thanks. All right.

Jake: Don't say another word, Abigail.

Margo: Jake, this isn't --

Jake: No, no, you back off! You're out of line. Get your stuff, honey. We're leaving, okay?

Abigail: But Jake, I was just starting to remember.

Jake: I understand that, honey. We can do that at home.

Abigail: No, I can't! I can't remember everything after Nick hit me, and that's why I'm here. It was beginning to work. I was starting to remember fragments and sounds and -- just give me and Mrs. Hughes --

Jake: This is not "Mrs.. Hughes." You think she's your friend because she's Adam's mother? She's not. She's on the job. Excuse me. Allow me to introduce you to Detective Hughes. She's here for one reason and one reason only, and that's to put your mother in jail.

Paul: You're going to tell me the truth.

Barbara: I don't like your tone, and I will not be cross-examined.

Paul: If you want me in your life, you're going to have to answer my questions. I know you blackmailed Rose.

Barbara: Honey, we have already been through this. I have already admitted that yes, I agreed to side with Lucinda at Worldwide in exchange to what I thought was an end of your relationship with Rose. Now, I know you don't like that, but I don't like her, and that's not going to change, so there. I'm honest. Are you happy?

Paul: No. No, I'm not, because I'm not talking about the board at Worldwide. I'm talking about what happened after that, and you know it.

Barbara: You can't see what she's doing to you, and I can, and yet, you would allow her to --

Paul: What, to meet me at the Lakeview so we can have some privacy? Do you realize how pathetic you look busting my windshield, paying off the concierge?

Barbara: I don't know what you're talking about.

Paul: Oh, stop it! You know exactly what I'm talking about! You got me out of the room, and then you confronted Rose about her Police record, and then, when she didn't back down, when she stood up to you, you threatened her. You threatened to go to her father and his friends, Lucinda, the people at the board of Worldwide. You threatened to destroy her life and the people she cares about just so you could have your way.

Barbara: You know, I don't know who's filling you with all of this. Rose has skipped town, hasn't she?

Paul: Mitzi paid me a visit.

Barbara: Oh, the other casino queen, an unimpeachable source.

Paul: No, a source who's worried about her friend.

Barbara: Who has obviously been pressed into service to cause a problem between us. Why can't you see that?

Paul: She hasn't spoken to Rose in days.

Barbara: Well, then maybe she's tossed her hat into the ring. Who knows what goes on in the minds of chorus girls and gold diggers?

Paul: Okay, fine. You don't want to believe Mitzi. What about Jack?

Barbara: What about Jack?

Paul: Rose went to talk to Jack after you threatened her and told him everything. So what do you say, mom? You want me to call Jack, get him down here? Or are you ready to admit what you've done?

Jake: Do you see anything -- anything at all about what happened that night?

Abigail: No! My head's still a mess, Jake. Sometimes, I see Nick's face. Sometimes, I hear his voice.

Jake: I know, I know. We'll talk about that at home, okay? We'll talk about it at home.

Margo: Jake, Abigail has every right to speak to me. She's not a minor.

Jake: Is that right? Is that how you do your job now? You take advantage of a traumatized child? Is that what you do, Margo?

Abigail: Jake, I'm not a child.

Margo: All right, all right. Abigail, Abigail, look. It's all right. Jake has every right to be upset. I mean, you were injured last night. You were probably up all night. We're all just running on fumes here.

Jake: So that's why this interrogation is over. Come on, honey.

Margo: No, Jake. Nothing is over until I say it's over. This is a crime scene, and if Abigail has information pertinent to the crime, she has an obligation to share it. Now, you are more than welcome to stay here while she tries to piece together what happened, but if you obstruct the process, then I'm going to have to ask you to leave.

Jake: I'm not going anywhere. I'm not going anywhere without my daughter.

Cop: You have a visitor.

Kim: Hey, kiddo.

Molly: Kim, I'm so sorry.

Kim: For what, for defending yourself? For heaven's sakes. You don't have to apologize to me.

Molly: He came after me, and I killed him.

Kim: No, no. Don't even talk about it. I just stopped by to see if you were okay, if you needed anything. I also wanted to warn you. I've been trying to downplay this story as much as possible, but with the arraignment today, it's --

Molly: I figured that, and that's another thing I'm sorry for. I know this looks terrible for the station.

Kim: Oh, don't even go there.

Molly: I can't help it. I've covered too many stories not to know how this one's gonna end.

Kim: This is going to end with an acquittal and your triumphant return to your desk in the newsroom. That's how it's going to end.

Molly: Always the optimist.

Kim: You bet. You know my motto -- chins up. You just keep your mind on that best case scenario, okay?

Molly: Happy endings, huh?

Kim: Mm-hmm.

Molly: Sunsets with my guy and my girls. I miss them so much I can't breathe.

Kim: I know, sweetheart. Take it easy. Take it easy.

Molly: I'm okay.

Kim: I should tell you that the coroner called me. Nick didn't have any next of kin, so I made the arrangements.

Molly: Whatever. He's going to burn in hell no matter where he's buried.

Lucy: I'm sure aunt Katie will be home soon.

Simon: I tell you what. Maybe I should give her a call?

Lucy: No! I mean, I don't think you'll get her. She said something about her battery being low.

Simon: Did she? Let me tell you something about your auntie Katie. She's -- she's full of energy and screwball ideas. She's never dull. It's kind of part of her charm. So she's cooking up something right now, isn't she?

Lucy: I wish I could tell you, uncle Simon, but --

Simon: Lucy, did Katie tell you why I had to chase her to that island? Did she? No? It's 'cause she crashed a plane on the beach. She crash landed the plane, not Henry the pilot, okay? And then -- and then she's stranded there, and she decided to go scuba diving in this really dangerous reef with huge sharks to find this diamond -- I mean, it's a long story, but you get the idea, right?

Lucy: So she's a little reckless?

Simon: Exactly, exactly. So I want to hit her off at the pass before picking up the pieces later. I promise I won't tell her that you told me.

Lucy: I promised her I wouldn't tell you.

Craig: Simon?

Simon: Yeah?

Craig: Lucy, could you excuse us for a minute?

Lucy: Not a problem.

Simon: No, we were just having a conversation.

Lucy: You talk to daddy. I have a desperate need to buy something. I'm not sure what. Please, please, please, please, please, please, please.

[Craig laughs]

Craig: All right. Spend away. Go ahead. Bankrupt me.

Lucy: Thank you, daddy.

Craig: Okay. So Simon, I need you to go to Paris.

[Simon laughs]

Simon: Yeah, right.

Craig: Don't laugh. Carly Tenney is missing. That's the last place she was seen.

Simon: Carly's your problem. She's not mine.

Craig: You're my solution.

Simon: Hey, hey, turn up your hearing aid, old man. I've told you a hundred times. I'm sick of being your lackey. I'm not going to do it anymore. Find someone else.

Barbara: Honey, I have no doubt that Rose is spreading vicious lies about me, to anyone who will listen -- Jack, Mitzi, but you? Knowing that you believe them, that is very disturbing to me.

Paul: And the fact that Jack -- a Police officer, an uninterested party, an objective witness --

Barbara: Witness to what? It's Rose's say so.

Paul: Mom, I've seen the Police record.

Barbara: And did it disturb you?

Paul: No.

Barbara: Well, then what is she complaining about?

Paul: You tried to blackmail her.

Barbara: Would you listen to yourself. First, you say that I threatened to go to her father if she didn't stop this relationship with you. But you decided to continue seeing each other, which according to your theory, means I would go straight to her dad. But you know what? I think that Joe D'Angelo is still in the dark about his daughter's career as a prostitute. So you enlighten me, Paul. Just how am I guilty? Think.

Paul: Her career as a prostitute?

Barbara: Her record, for solicitation.

Paul: I never told you that.

Barbara: Yes, you did.

Paul: No.

Barbara: Yes, you said that she came to you, and that she admitted the entire thing. And that she showed you her --

Paul: Yeah, her Police record. That's all I said. It could have been for shoplifting, drunk driving. The only way you could know it was for solicitation is if you dug it up yourself and used it against her.

Barbara: I'm not going to play word games with you. I know what I heard. And if you know that she had a career --

[Barbara sighs]

Paul: You know, what bothers me is how you could be so conniving and vicious, to control me.

Barbara: If I was able to put my hands on all this information, tell me how, when I so seldom left my house?

Paul: Oh, okay. You want to talk about that? Fine, okay, I'll go there. Because you obviously had help. You want me to guess who?

Barbara: What now,there's a conspiracy? To what -- discredit a woman who had a career as a paid sex worker? Who are you calling? Hang up the phone.

Paul: Jack Snyder please.

Barbara: Hang up the phone.

Paul: Jack? Hey, it's Paul Ryan.

Barbara: Okay, so I admit it. I admit it, I admit it. I hired a private detective to do some dirty work under it. And I found something and I confronted her with it, okay?

Paul: I'll call you back.

Barbara: Can't you understand? That I would want someone better than an ex-hooker to be with my son? Is that what you want for the mother of your children?

Paul: Trust me, it's a vast improvement on my mother.

Barbara: You don't mean that, Paul.

Paul: I have lost all respect for you. To deliberately hurt someone whose only crime was loving me.

Barbara: She backed out of our deal. Come on, Paul. Bryant had just died -- Jennifer was distraught and I was --

Paul: Oh, mom, Bryant died? That's your excuse? Bryant died?

Barbara: Think of it in my position. Put yourself in a mother's perspective. She was a prostitute.

Paul: Okay. Well, tell me this, mom, what else did you do? In the name of love.

Barbara: Nothing.

Paul: Yeah, try again. When your Police record thing didn't work, you concocted another scheme, didn't you? Based on me and what you knew would hurt me most.

Barbara: No, I didn't.

Paul: You knew where I was vulnerable. You knew I would overreact if I thought Rose was cheating on me. And so you just --you just tried to figure out a way to torture me. And when you couldn't find her old boyfriend, Vince, you invented him. Sent me flowers and phone calls, and checked into the Lakeview. Very inventive. Complete with flowers and champagne glasses and lingerie. Tell me, mom, the lingerie thing, was that your idea?

Barbara: No, it wasn't.

Paul: So it was my father's, wasn't it?

Billy: Can I get some water to go, please? Thank you.

Lucy: I thought that was you.

Billy: Hey, Lucy.

Lucy: Where've you been? I haven't seen you since that party the other night.

Billy: The bartending at the java underground became a regular gig, so I've been pretty busy. Well, you know what? I'll call you later. Thank you.

Lucy: It's because of Bryant, isn't it? That you feel weird around me.

Billy: What do you mean?

Lucy: You see me and it reminds you. It's the same for me. I see you and I think of him. Of how you guys would post that sign outside the tent, in the backyard -- "No Lucys allowed."

Billy: You were so cute, but you were a pain.

Lucy: I was looking at some family photos before you came in. I kept thinking, "don't -- don't go there. It's dangerous." Too late. I'm sorry. I do this all day. I see something that reminds me of how much I miss him, and I just --

Billy: Look, no one ever can replace Bryant. But if you ever need anything, know I'll always be here for you.

Lucy: Thanks, Billy.

Billy: Come here.

Katie: Okay. Great. Does anyone remember the sprinkler?

[Katie sighs] No? Anyone? All right, let's take a break. Check your pulse.

Dahlia: You okay?

Katie: Yeah, great. No, they hate me.

Dahlia: They're a tough crowd. They're at the gym every day, or working out at home with the top gurus on tape. It isn't easy to inspire them, but you will. You'll find your own style.

[Cell phone rings] Excuse me.

Katie: In with the good -- out with the bad --

Woman: Somebody get her an oxygen tank.

[Laughter]

Margo: Listen, Jake, Molly confessed to a crime. That usually means case closed. The very fact that I'm here investigating at all should tell you something. Abigail, there are some inconsistencies, and I was hoping that you could clear them up.

Abigail: Well, I told you that Nick was angry. If he hit me, he could hit anyone. Mom was defending herself.

Jake: They're charging your mother with murder.

Abigail: But it was self defense.

Jake: That doesn't seem to matter to Detective Hughes, here.

Margo: Abigail, you want to know what I really think? I have no Idaho did this, or why.

Jake: Well, that sounds really good. It's just I have a hard time believing you. Your mother's not getting out of jail. You see, she's a menace to society, according to Detective Hughes here. So the D.A. has requested that she be held without bail.

Margo: All right, McKinnon, that's it. You're out of here, right now.

Jake: Oh, well, there you go. Now that's the bad cop. You see, the Mrs. Hughes that you knew earlier, who just wanted to help you with your memory -- that's the nice cop. But the only thing is they're together. They're a team, they have one objective -- that is to make sure your mother does not get out of jail.

Abigail: Wait, so she's not coming home?

Jake: Are you proud of yourself?

Adam: What's going on?

Abigail: They're charging Molly with the murder, and it's all my fault.

Adam: Mom, what did you do?

Jake: Tell him. Tell him, mom -- on second thought, where were you the other night, Adam?

Margo: That's enough, Jake.

Adam: Why?

Jake: Well, your mom is grilling Abigail about what she remembers.

Adam: You remembered something?

Abigail: Just flashes and stuff --

Jake: So we were wondering what you were doing when you supposedly found Abigail wandering around. Did you come here first?

Adam: No. It's like I said. She was outside.

Jake: I believe you, Adam. Case closed.

Adam: Okay, what is going on here?

Jake: You're going to take Abigail and go home. Isn't that right, mom? Come on.

Margo: McKinnon, you think I like this? You think I like poking holes in Molly's story? You think I like going after her daughter?

Jake: I don't know, Margo, do you like it? You seem to put your career in front of your friends.

Margo: That is not true.

Jake: When you were on trial for murder, I stood up for you. I stood up for you. You know why? Because that's what friends do.

Margo: And I never lied.

Jake: What, are you saying I'm lying?

Margo: Somebody is lying. And when I find out who --

Jake: Just hope it's not somebody you care about.

Adam: I'm sorry about my mom cornering you like that before.

Abigail: She didn't corner me, Adam. I wanted to go. I needed to remember, and I did.

Adam: What exactly did you remember again?

Abigail: I remembered the feeling I used to have when we were alone together. You know, I'd sneak off to his house, and we'd --

Adam: It's okay.

Abigail: It's just -- it was our place, you know? Where we could go alone and talk without Molly and Jake or --

Adam: Me.

Abigail: No. You have been nothing but great, Adam.

Adam: It's not true.

Abigail: You don't think I know what happened with Brandy? How it feels to have someone listen to you? To make you feel like you're worth it?

Adam: Until they don't.

Abigail: Until they don't.

Adam: Abigail, look, what you felt for Nick, that was not your fault. Yeah, yeah, he let you down. But you are still the same person, okay?

Abigail: Yeah, somebody who believed a liar over a friend.

Adam: Well, that just makes you just like Molly, because he fooled her, too.

Abigail: And now she's in jail because of me.

Adam: Abigail, Abigail, look -- don't look at it that way. Okay? Just look at it like this. He's gone now. It's over.

Abigail: But I didn't want him gone, Adam. Out of Oakdale, yes, but not dead. I didn't want him dead. Did I?

Craig: Sorry, son, I thought I heard you say no to the man who made Katie's wedding dream come true. And no to the brother-in-law who allows you to live here rent-free.

Simon: So pay me for the last half dozen sleazy jobs I did for you, and I'll move out.

Craig: Your memory is short, but sleazy? Paris? I don't think so.

Simon: Trust me, if you're involved, it'll turn sleazy.

Craig: Simon, I don't know whether to be offended or hurt.

Simon: So take your pick. Let me remind you, ring a few bells here -- Gabriel? No? Ruby?

Craig: This is different, Simon. It's not about money or power or revenge. It's about Carly. If something's happened to her --

Simon: It's because of you, Craig! Why'd she go to Paris in the first place -- huh? Huh? You! So take responsibility and clean up your own damn mess!

Craig: No, no, no, you're right, it is my fault. I contacted Rimbaud. I urged her to go. I should have insisted upon going with her. But, no, I was too late. I can't leave Lucy, Simon. And Carly's out there somewhere in trouble.

Simon: Yeah, it's a problem, huh?

Craig: When Katie was marooned on that island and you knew she was in trouble, would you have gone if you had a 16-year-old daughter waiting on you, Simon? She needs me. Simon, her brother died, she turned to me for comfort. It's a second chance for us.

Simon: Yeah, well, Katie, your sister, and I have a second chance right here.

Craig: So take her with you ! Consider it a honeymoon! Huh? C'mon, Simon, you big galoot. What do you say? Paris, Katie, a noble cause. What's so bad?

Simon: One week, Craig. One week!

Craig: Thank you. I'll make arrangements for two. You leave tonight.

Simon: Well, whatever you're up to, Katie, it's going to have to wait.

Lucy: Did Bryant work out at this gym, too?

Billy: Sometimes.

Lucy: Aunt Katie? What are you --

Katie: Simon's not here, is he?

Lucy: He's doing some business thing with dad. It's okay, I've got you covered. You look great.

Katie: Oh, please. These women hate me. You're witnessing the shortest career ever.

Dahlia: Okay, you're on.

Katie: Great. Okay, ladies. You ready to pump those hearts.

[Group groans] Let's go back to the top again, half time. Jump to the right. Snap. Jump to the left. Snap. Jump, kick, and out. Other side.

Lucy: We have to do something. This is awful.

Billy: Yeah.

Lucy: Aunt Katie is counting on this job.

Katie: Again with the same feet.

Billy: You know what? I got an idea. Hold this for a second. I'll be right back. Hey, ladies, I could use a good workout. What do you say?

[Talking over each other]

Katie: Why is he doing this to me?

Lucy: Think so?

Billy: Katie!

[Cheering]

All: Katie!

Barbara: Paul, this is crazy. Yes, I admit I ran a check on Rose. I run background checks on all of our employees, don't I? And, yes, I found something. I found something ugly, and I confronted her with it. But then to jump from that to an alliance with James Steinbeck?

Paul: You've been seen with him.

Barbara: Once when Jack pulled him off of me. And once again when he came to me to inform me that you had betrayed me by hiring Carly Tenney.

Paul: And now Carly's missing.

Barbara: Meaning what? That James and I planted her in the back by the gazebo, maybe next to Rose and Emily? Go on. Get a court order. Dig up the tulips. Tell me what you find. Because I'll tell you something. It all makes sense, doesn't it? That I would throw my lot in with that man after spending my entire adult life trying to keep him away from you. I would now turn to him to help me hurt you? Because that's what I am -- a selfish, evil, murdering shrew.

Paul: I don't know what you are, mom. Not anymore.

Barbara: Do you actually think I could kill someone?

Paul: No.

Barbara: Then what are you saying?

Paul: That you're involved in whatever's going on here.

Barbara: But, honey, we don't know what's going on. Don't you see that? I wouldn't hurt Rose, let alone plant her in the garden. Paul, think. It's been years since I planted a bulb, let alone a body. I know I have changed since the accident and the trial, and sometimes I just lose myself. And I look in a mirror and I see a monster, and I behave accordingly. And it has cost me my children, my company --

Paul: Mom, I am through -- I am through feeling sorry for you. I have paid my dues.

Barbara: I'm not looking for sympathy.

Paul: No, you're just trying to change the subject. Your accident has nothing to do with my father reappearing here in Oakdale or Rose disappearing.

Barbara: This isn't getting us anywhere, Paul.

Paul: Exactly! You're right. So just come clean. You want to prove that you have nothing to do with this? Then prove it.

Barbara: Prove what? We don't know what's happened. We don't know anything at all. Please, let's not lose each other over this. I need you. I would do anything for you.

Paul: Okay, okay. You want my support? You want my affection? Then help me find Rose.

Kim: Okay, Tom, you know, of course, anything that I can do, don't hesitate to call me. I'll tell her. Bye-bye. He says he'll be over to see you later.

Molly: He's been great.

Kim: Like I said, anything that I can do, I will be glad to help.

Molly: And I appreciate that, Kim. I do. But I don't think there's anything anyone can do.

Kim: Well, I can certainly testify for you. I'm your employer. I'll be a character witness.

Molly: Right. And you'll say lovely things about me and the D.A. will twist everything.

Kim: We're not gonna let that happen.

Molly: Kim, do you remember how you reacted when I said I absolutely did not want Nick working at that station? Right. Well, Jessica is going to force you to admit that you thought that I was being paranoid. Vindictive, even. And that Nick was an asset to work.

Kim: Well, I did think he was an asset to begin with, but later on --

Molly: When what? When I told you what was going on? It's gonna be my word against his, Kim. That is gonna be the prosecution's case. They're gonna say I made the whole thing up to hurt him, to get revenge. That it was all a lie. His romancing Abigail to extort money from us, all a lie, Kim. My word against his, like I said.

Kim: Well, for heaven sakes, Abigail can testify --

Molly: No. Abigail's not getting on that stand. Because you saw how Jessica tore into Carly on the stand. She's ruthless, and Abigail's been through enough.

Kim: Well, Molly, there certainly must be something that could be done.

Molly: I wish there were. But Nick Scudder was a con artist. Nobody saw who he really was. He made sure of that.

Kim: Yeah, well, I don't like how this sounds. I mean, you sound like you're resigned in this, like you're giving up.

Molly: He got me put in jail once before, so I think I'm just being realistic. Listen, there's something that I need from you.

Kim: Name it.

Molly: Kim, I want you to help Jake. Help him with the girls.

Kim: Of course. Of course I will. But I expect you to keep your part, too. You have to keep some faith going here. You can't let them beat you down before you even start fighting. Now, you get it together, and I'll be back. Love you.

[Clapping]

Billy: Come on, y'all. Go low. Come on. Come on. I can't hear you.

[Cheers] ooh, yeah!

Katie: Okay, let's take it five, six, seven, eight.

Billy: What do we got there?

Katie: Again?

Billy: Again? Oh, yeah. Okay.

Katie: And here's a jump.

Billy: Whoo! All right, come on, guys. I can't hear ya!

[Applause] Good job, good job.

Katie: Ladies, thank you. Great job. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Don't forget to stretch. Great.

Lucy: My hero.

Billy: Hey, anything for the family, you know?

Katie: Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Billy: Hey. It wasn't just me. They just needed a change around here, you know?

Lucy: You were great, aunt Katie. I'll see you at home.

Katie: Okay. And Simon doesn't know where you were or that I was there, okay?

Lucy: I know.

Katie: Great. Thank you.

Billy: All right.

Dahlia: Congratulations. I've never seen a class respond like that.

Katie: Yeah, well, I think they just needed a little more motivation.

Dahlia: Well, you motivated me. I'm going to have those contracts drawn up, and we'll start planning for the taping. I'll see you tomorrow.

Katie: Tomorrow?

Dahlia: Yeah, check the desk for your schedule. You'll be teaching three classes a day, four days a week until we start the taping. I smell money, Katie. You and I are gonna be rich.

Katie: Three classes a day?

Katie: Where's Simon?

Lucy: Looking for you. Here. I bought you a hat.

Katie: A hat?

Simon: Katie -- Katie, where have you been?

Lucy: Her hat. She found it.

Simon: Oh, fantastic, 'cause now she can pack it.

Katie: Why? You're kicking me out?

Simon: No, it's the only way that I'm gonna get you to go to Paris.

Katie: Paris? What is it?

Simon: It's a major European city that has frog's legs and Gerard Depardieu. But that's not important right now.

Katie: Wait. We're going to Paris now? Why?

Simon: Because I have a job there for about a week. Come on. We can get in some honeymooning while we're there. It'll be great.

Katie: A week in Paris. Well, you know, I think that a woman should let her husband do his career when he needs to. So you go do your job, and I'll see you when you get back.

Simon: Wait, wait, whoa, wait. Whoa. Okay, I just asked my wife to go to Paris with me, and she said no. Please, tell me what's going on.

Lucy: Hey, dad. I bought you a present.

Craig: For me? Buried in that sea of packages? Simon, I have your tickets.

Lucy: He needs to work something out with aunt Katie.

Craig: All right. Oh!

Lucy: Blue, like your eyes.

Craig: Oh, wow.

Lucy: And gloves --

Craig: Gloves.

Lucy: -- And socks.

Craig: Socks? It's not even father's day.

Lucy: I am going to take care of you.

Craig: Oh, all this knitwear. It's so good to see you looking happy.

Lucy: I had the best day. I ran into Billy. And he's going to take me out to --

Craig: Your cousin?

Lucy: Yeah. He's going to take me all around Oakdale this weekend.

Craig: I thought you and I were going skiing this week.

Lucy: Well, there's this great snow festival in the park and you get to build sculptures. Well, snowmen. And there's judges. And you can come. It'll be great. We'll be a team.

Craig: Sweetness, I don't want you spending time with Billy, all right?

Lucy: But he's my cousin.

Craig: Well --

Lucy: And he understands what I'm feeling. I don't have to pretend around him, you know? He loved Bryant, too.

Craig: Did he? Well, you can't see him.

Lucy: Why?

Craig: Because he's using you because of what happened to Bryant. If he thinks he's going to work out his guilt by cozying -- Billy's off limits.

Barbara: I don't know where Rose is. What do you want from me, Paul?

Paul: Do you have an old picture -- a recent picture of James?

Barbara: No. I've been trying to erase him from my memory for most of my entire life. Why would I have any picture of him?

Paul: Old clippings and a scrapbook maybe?

Barbara: I threw away anything having to do with him years ago. Paul, you haven't seen him, have you? You haven't seen him in town? Because I'm feeling very vulnerable here with Hal gone and with you at the Lakeview.

Paul: You would tell me if you had seen him, wouldn't you, mom?

Barbara: I don't like the games you're playing. You're insulting me. I had nothing to do with Rose's disappearance. And when you discover that, you will owe me an apology. And in the meantime, I think you'd better leave.

Paul: You know, mom, I hope you're innocent. I really do. But if you had anything to do with what's happened to Rose, God help you.

[Door slams] Jack? It's Paul. Meet me at Al's. Bring a mug shot of James. It's just a hunch. Based on..

I think you're right. I think my father may be behind this after all.

Barbara: You think you're so clever. You think no one's gonna trace this all to you? Well, you got to fix this before Paul finds out.

The number you have dialed is not available at this time.

Barbara: James? James, how could you do this to me? Where are you, James?

Molly: Where'd you go? Is it Abigail? Is she all right?

Jake: She's fine. I just wanted to see how the arraignment was going and wanted a word with Margo.

Molly: You didn't yell at her. Please, tell me you didn't yell at her?

Jake: Margo can take care of herself.

Molly: Yeah, but we want her on our side.

Jake: Cops don't have sides. It's their way or the highway.

Molly: What happened?

Jake: They're continuing the investigation.

Molly: Why? I confessed. They arraigned me for murder.

Jake: Molly, there's some holes in your story. Look, I'm just the messenger.

Molly: I know that. I just don't understand. What more do they want? They've already charged me with the maximum.

Jake: What happened that night?

Molly: I already told you what happened that night, Jake. He came after me, he attacked me. I defended myself. He died. You would've done the same thing if he'd come after Bridget or Michelle.

Jake: You're right. You're right. I'd do anything to take care of my girls.

Adam: Look, just because you're upset with someone, you're mad. That doesn't -- like, I've wanted to kill my brother before. But that doesn't mean I'd actually do it. And the simple fact that you're actually worried about this just proves that you would never do it.

Abigail: But why can't I remember?

Adam: Because he hit you. He knocked you out. If I'd been there, I would have killed him myself.

Abigail: No, you wouldn't have. Look, yes, he did some terrible things. He got me to trust him so that he could hurt me and he could get back at Molly. And he let Molly rot in jail that time for a crime that he committed. But he didn't deserve to die. He deserved to go back to prison.

Adam: See, that right there. You'd never do it, no matter how mad you got.

Abigail: But Molly would.

Adam: If he threatened her, yeah. I mean, look at what he did to you.

Abigail: That's just it. That's just it, Adam. If I had just listened for one minute -- if I had just stopped and took one minute out -- everyone I trusted in the world was telling me he was not a good person. But I didn't care. I wanted to believe it was true. That he loved me, that I was worth loving. And look what happened. He's dead. And the one person that means the most to me in the entire world is in jail because of me.

Kim: Hello, you two.

Adam: Hi.

Kim: Hi. Abigail, darling, are you okay?

Abigail: Yeah. I'm just tired. You know about Molly?

Kim: I do. I just saw her earlier today. And I wanted to track you down and make sure you are all right, and make sure that you understand Molly is going to be all right.

Abigail: Mrs. Hughes, can I ask you to do me a favor?

Kim: Of course.

Abigail: Do you know what happened to Nick, his body?

Kim: Well, as a matter of fact, I do. Since I was his last employer, they called me. He had no next of kin, so I made the arrangements.

Abigail: Well, I need to see him.

Adam: No, that's not a good idea.

Abigail: No, you don't understand, Adam. I need to say good-bye. I need to apologize.

Kim: Abigail, Nick's already been buried.

Abigail: What? When?

Kim: This morning.

Abigail: Where did they bury him?

Kim: Well, the city has a cemetery they use. As a matter of fact, it's out by the penitentiary.

Abigail: What? They buried him in a cemetery for criminals? Just threw him in the ground without a funeral?

Kim: No. There was a chaplain there --

Adam: Abigail, wait!

Kim: I'm sorry, Adam.

Adam: Excuse me. I have to go.

Kim: No, no, that's all right.

Adam: Abigail, wait! Abigail! I'll be back.

Margo: Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa. You can catch up to her later.

Adam: I'm sorry.

Margo: You can catch up to her in a minute.

Adam: No, mom, I need to --

Margo: I need to talk to you now, Adam.

Adam: She needs me. What about?

Margo: Jake asked you some questions.

Adam: Yeah. He was just busting my chops.

Margo: No, mine, actually. Listen to me. I noticed how you reacted. Adam, you need to tell me what really happened last night when Nick Scudder died.
