Jennifer: Hey.

Bonnie: Hi.

Jennifer: Everything okay?

Bonnie: Not exactly.

Jennifer: Well, come on in. Our lives can fall apart together.

Bonnie: Wait, what happened to you?

[Jennifer sighs]

Jennifer: I just had to say no to shooting a commercial in Tokyo.

Bonnie: Why?

Jennifer: It's not really a good time for me to be away.

Bonnie: Your family?

Jennifer: Yeah, Will is in bad shape. My dad's still not here. And I just -- I can't walk away from him, you know?

Bonnie: You know, Jen, you know I really respect the way that you stepped in to help out with your brother. But you have to take care of yourself, too.

Jennifer: I know. I know, but -- well, they want me to sign a contract, and I just -- I can't do that.

Bonnie: The number, please?

Jennifer: Of what?

Bonnie: Your booking agent.

Jennifer: Why?

Bonnie: So that I can call him and tell him that you're doing this commercial.

Jennifer: Look, I feel bad enough about this already. Please don't make it worse.

Bonnie: Okay. Okay, fine. I guess you know what you're doing.

Jennifer: Not really. So, what's going on with you?

Bonnie: Well, you're not the only one who got an offer today.

Jennifer: Someone offered you a job? Doing what?

Bonnie: Not a job, Jen -- this.

Isaac: And there's Bonnie, holding this huge crown -- complete with jewels.

Billy: The Scottish dude, right?

Isaac: Who else could it have been? I mean, I call her duchess as a joke. This guy's gonna make her the real thing.

Lisa: Well, then, what did you do?

Isaac: I left.

Lisa: You left? You mean you didn't give her the beautiful earrings you bought for her?

Isaac: Lisa, she's holding a couple million in jewels going "bling, bling, bling, bling." I don't think my little bitty earrings are gonna impress her.

Billy: Sorry about that.

Isaac: Don't be, man. You know, if that's what she wants, it's better I know now.

Lisa: You don't know -- you don't know anything. You've just got to get over yourself. You have no earthly idea what it is that Bonnie wants.

Isaac: Oh, no? Then why was she holding this thing like it was the answer to all her prayers?

Lisa: Was Ian there?

Isaac: Not that I could see.

Lisa: Oh, well, then, you don't know whether he proposed to her. You don't know whether Bonnie accepted. In fact, you don't even know where this so-called "crown" came from. You don't even know what was going on. Isn't that correct?

Isaac: I don't need to be beat over the head with this.

Lisa: Yeah, maybe not. But how about a little cold water thrown on the head to kind of liven things up a bit.

Billy: You know, I got to go with Isaac on this one, Lisa.

Isaac: Thank you.

Billy: A crown of jewels against a job here -- no contest.

Lisa: Billy, don't you have some lemons you want to slice?

Billy: Right. Good luck.

Lisa: Isaac, you have every right in this world to be disappointed. But you really must talk this over with Bonnie before you make some plans for your future.

Isaac: I'm done talking to her, and about her. As far as I'm concerned, she got a duke, a crown and a one-way ticket out of my life.

Hal: It's me, Margo. You can say hello anytime.

Margo: God, Hal, it is -- it's you! You're back! You're all right. You are all right, aren't you?

Hal: Oh, reasonably so. Yourself?

Margo: I'm fine. I'm fine, but, you know, so many things have happened. You have no idea what I've been going through! Why didn't you contact me?

Hal: Didn't Jack clue you in? I told him I was working on the Steinbeck case.

Margo: Well, yes, but you had already been missing for weeks, and we had no idea. We thought we'd hear from you before now.

Hal: It was a difficult situation. I did the best I could.

Margo: Yeah, but, Hal, Jack found your badge and your clothes. And nobody knew what to think.

Hal: Where's Jack now?

Margo: Well, you see, that's just the problem. We don't really know.

Hal: He went to France, didn't he? After I gave him a direct order not to.

Margo: You know, Hal, it's actually it's more complicated than that. You see --

Hal: I expected you and Jack to run this department responsibly in my absence. Obviously, that was too much to expect.

[Knock at the door]

Craig: All right, Julia. You didn't take Jack to Carly's place, so where did you take him? Come on, clues, clues, clues.

Simon: Okay, pal, don't move and nobody gets hurt. Turn around nice and slowly. That's it. Easy does it.

Craig: Simon, what are you doing here?

Simon: Yeah, nice, I was about to ask you the same question, Craig. What are you doing here?

Jack: This is unbelievable. You gave me Viagra so I would have sex with you?!

Julia: So we can make our baby like we always wanted.

Jack: I know. I know. And for a while there, I thought it was a good idea, too. But I've been thinking, Julia. If we're not married, what sense does it make to bring a child into the world?

Julia: I felt so strong when I was pregnant with our child, Jack -- so happy. I was gonna be a mother. Life would spring from my body, life that you and I had created. And then I had the miscarriage, and nothing was ever the same. I became weak and confused, and you turned away from me for that tramp.

Jack: That's not how it happened.

Julia: Well, I don't know how else you'd describe it. But that's all right, Jack. You can make it up to me. You can give me another child. Everyone else gets to be a mommy, Jack, why not me?

Jack: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, Julia. I need more time, okay?

Julia: You've had time, buddy! You've had nothing but time!

Jack: The answer is no! I don't care what you put in that drink, I'm not gonna be your sperm donor.

Julia: Jack, what happened to all of those memories of how hot I used to make you? Hmm? All those nights of passion we had, and afternoons and mornings?

Jack: You zapped me with a stun gun. You strapped me to this thing, and you kidnapped me. And now you expect me to have sex with you? I'd have to be as crazy as you are!

Julia: You better watch what you say, sweetheart. In my condition, I could get violent at any minute.

Jack: Oh, then kill me already, please? It doesn't matter what you say or do. I'm not gonna cooperate, Julia.

Julia: Hmm, are you angry, Jack? Good.

Jack: Good?

Julia: We had some of our best sex when you were angry, remember? You'd come home from work, and you'd be all grumpy and distracted. You'd have your mouth all turned down, and you'd have your arms crossed. And -- and I'd sneak up from behind when you least expected it and do this.

Jack: Oh, no. I am not gonna have sex with you.

Julia: Oh, that's what you said then, too. But somehow, I always managed to turn you on.

Jack: Maybe I was just doing it to keep you quiet.

Julia: Liar! No matter how hard you try and fight it, Jack, we're gonna make a baby tonight. Now, where were we? Oh, yeah.

Jack: Baseball, baseball. Baseball, baseball.

Julia: You're not trying very hard, Jack.

Jack: Grandma, what are you doing here?

Julia: Oh, come on. What's the matter, hmm? I don't make you feel good? Remember, you used to say my lips tasted like raspberry mousse.

Jack: I never said anything like that.

Julia: Okay. But, I mean, you used to like to kiss me. Maybe I didn't give you the right dosage.

Jack: I'm curious, Julia. Where did you get that money that you gave the apartment manager?

Julia: Have you forgotten already? I'm rich.

Jack: Was it from Steinbeck?

Julia: Yeah, that's right. Satisfied? This doesn't make any sense. Maybe the sedative I gave you is diluting the effect, because, you know, you should be wild with desire by now. You should be a raging animal.

Jack: Why -- why -- why would Steinbeck -- why would Steinbeck give you money?

Julia: Oh, Jack, I don't know.

Jack: You two aren't exactly close.

Julia: I just got out of the hospital, you know? Maybe he figured I could use some cash.

Jack: You emptied a .45 into his son's corpse. Why would he care about your financial situation?

Julia: James felt that I should be compensated for all the trouble that David caused me. He understood how much I had suffered.

Jack: No, Julia, Steinbeck's using you. He's setting you up to take the fall for him. Is that what you want -- to be manipulated, ridiculed in front of everyone you know?

Julia: Stop it! You're confusing me, and I don't like that. I don't care if this stuff is working or not. It's time for you to perform your manly duties.

Jack: Steinbeck -- Steinbeck kidnapped three innocent women, Julia. If you took money from him, that makes you an accessory in a federal offense, no less.

Julia: Excuse me -- excuse me. Are you talking about the three eyesores that James so gallantly removed from the Oakdale landscape?

Jack: Those three women have names. Emily Stewart, Rose D'Angelo and --

Julia: Don't you dare say her name in my presence!

[Jack coughs] no more excuses, Jack. Make love to me, now.

Jack: Julia, I -- I can't.

Julia: Why? It's the medicine?

Jack: I love Carly. I won't be unfaithful to her.

Julia: Thank you. Thank you for reminding me.

Jack: What are you doing? Julia, what -- what are you doing?

Julia: Oh, I'm just making it a little easier for you. There we go. Now, don't go away. And if you try anything before I get back, I will have my good friend James Steinbeck make sure that you never see Carly again.

Jack: Julia, what are you going to do? Julia, what are you going to do?!

Bonnie: I explained to him that in no uncertain terms it was over between us. He said he respected my decision, and then he gives me this.

Jennifer: And what is this -- other than dripping with almost every gem on earth?

Bonnie: The family coronet, usually worn by the duchess.

Jennifer: That means he still wants to marry you! Oh, congratulations.

Bonnie: I didn't accept.

Jennifer: And why not?

Bonnie: Because that would actually mean speaking, Jen, which is something I couldn't do for several minutes.

Jennifer: So, what now?

Bonnie: Ian's leaving Oakdale at midnight. I'm supposed to call him before then if I change my mind and decide to marry him.

Jennifer: If you decide to marry him? Why wouldn't you? Bonnie, he's sworn that he's changed, and I know that he still loves you.

Bonnie: He does seem different. And we did have a lot of fun together. Only --

Jennifer: Bonnie, this is your chance to be royalty.

Bonnie: I got to go.

Jennifer: Why? Where?

Bonnie: Java underground. I'm late for my shift.

Jennifer: Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I am not gonna let you give up Ian to be a waitress.

Bonnie: Jen, it's not about which is better, duchess or waitress. It's about which life is going to make me happiest.

Jennifer: And you still don't know which one that is?

[Jennifer sighs] can I help you decide?

Craig: If you're gonna rob a house, the least you could do is pick one in a better neighborhood.

Simon: Who needs a credit card when you got a set of keys?

Craig: Why does everyone in this town have keys except me? What are you doing, watering plants?

Simon: Uh, no. They're plastic.

Craig: Then what?

Simon: You first.

Craig: Well, nobody else is doing anything about finding Carly and those women. So I'm taking matters into my own hands. Now you?

Simon: None of your business.

Craig: All right, Katie will be bragging about it sooner or later anyway.

Simon: Oh, no. You cannot tell Katie that you saw me here.

Craig: Why not?

Simon: I don't want her involved.

Craig: In what?

Simon: Look, I don't want her at risk, okay? That's all I'm gonna tell you.

Craig: Oh, please, Simon. Come on.

Simon: All right, this has to stay between you and me.

Craig: It will.

Simon: I'm working for the Police, helping Margo track down Jack.

Margo: Abigail Williams' trial is scheduled for a couple of weeks from now. We thought we had another suspect, but Brandy Taylor had an alibi for that night.

Hal: Stop.

Margo: What?

Hal: I'm sorry I snapped at you. Obviously you've had it rough.

Margo: I'm not complaining, Hal. But it has gone from bad to worse.

Hal: Something new?

Margo: I think that Julia Lindsey has kidnapped Jack.

Hal: What?

Margo: Somebody sprang Julia from the institution that she was committed to. And the next day, both she and Jack disappeared.

Hal: Now, that is strange. Who would want to spring Julia Lindsey and put her back on the streets?

Margo: Are you kidding? Steinbeck.

Hal: You have proof?

Margo: Yeah, I got about 20 years worth. This perfectly fits his M.O.

Hal: I warned Jack not to take chances. Now, the only reason that this happened was because he booked that flight to France.

Margo: Are you blaming Jack for his own kidnapping, Hal?

Hal: I warned him when I called him. I told him when I called him.

Margo: Jack didn't even know for sure that that was you on the phone. He didn't know if maybe Steinbeck had a gun to your head.

Hal: Even so, he should have obeyed my orders.

Margo: Hal, we have all been in the dark here -- Jack, me, the commissioner, your family. We had no idea where you had gone. We had no idea when you would be back.

Hal: Are you questioning the way I've conducted an investigation that needed to be top-secret for a hundred different reasons?

Margo: No, I'm sorry. It's just --

Hal: What?

Margo: You haven't even asked about Adam.

Hal: If there were a problem, I assumed that you would tell me.

Margo: Hal, there have been nothing but problems. What about Will and Parker and Jennifer? You don't think that your disappearance affected them? Yet, Hal, you don't seem at all interested. What is it Hal? Is there something you need to tell me? Hal, did something happen to you while you were gone?

Hal: Yes.

Lisa: Isaac, you are so wrong. I know that Bonnie couldn't be bought for a lousy old crown or some tired old title. There's a lot of things I don't know, but I do understand love.

Bonnie: I'm sorry I'm late. I'll be ready in just one minute, okay?

Isaac: What's that?

Bonnie: Nothing.

Isaac: Can I see it?

Bonnie: No.

Isaac: Why not?

Bonnie: It's a surprise, okay?

Isaac: It's over.

Lisa: Isaac, I know that Bonnie is in love with you. But she just doesn't even realize it herself just yet.

Isaac: Now, you may want that to be true, but wishing doesn't make it so.

Lisa: Wishing can also make it so. You just have to be patient. Look, I have to get over to fashions. We have a crisis over there with inventory. Do you think you can handle this alone here?

Isaac: There's nothing to handle.

Lisa: Oh, keep the faith.

Bonnie: Okay, sorry about that. Well, at least it wasn't too busy.

Isaac: Right. Are you hungry? Because we all ordered sandwiches earlier.

Bonnie: No, thanks. I had a very late breakfast at the Lakeview.

Isaac: Expensive place.

Bonnie: I suppose.

Isaac: Special occasion?

Bonnie: No, not really. You all right?

Isaac: Always. You?

Bonnie: Fine. Except --

Isaac: What?

Bonnie: Was that roast beef or turkey sandwiches?

Isaac: All right, okay. All right, that's it! Okay, now either you tell me what the deal is with this diamond-studded beanie, or I take it outside and run it over with my car.

Bonnie: What? How could you possibly --

Isaac: Look, I'm talking about this! Huh? Now maybe the duke couldn't manage to keep his kilt pulled down, but somehow you ended up with his family jewels.

Paul: Hey, everybody.

Jennifer: Hi.

Paul: Oh, you know who you look like to me? You look like a kid who had a very terrific day today.

Will: Can I be excused?

Paul: Sure. We'll catch up later.

Will: Oh, and I promise I'll eat more tomorrow.

Paul: Has he been acting like that all day?

Jennifer: It comes and goes. He misses dad.

Paul: Well, can't blame him for that. So, how do you enjoy cooking dinner every night?

Jennifer: It's okay.

Paul: I mean, as opposed to something a little more exciting like -- shooting a commercial in Tokyo.

Jennifer: Sinjun called you?

Paul: Yeah, he thought it was a mistake that you passed. Wanted me to help convince you.

Jennifer: He shouldn't have done that.

Paul: Well, I'm glad he did. It's a great opportunity, Jen. You should do it.

Jennifer: Well, Will needs someone to be here when he gets home from school, and you work, so --

Paul: Well, I'll cover for you. It's not a problem.

Jennifer: You know, Will's in bad shape. It's like he can't even concentrate anymore. He needs someone here with him.

Paul: Well, having his sister resent him is a problem that he doesn't need right now.

Jennifer: I wouldn't do that.

Paul: Yes, you would. You wouldn't realize it, but you would. Do the commercial, Jen. Don't let -- please, don't let this family turn you into someone who always wonders what might've been.

Jennifer: You sure you don't mind?

Paul: I'll mind a lot more if you don't.

Jennifer: I have to go, actually.

Paul: Why?

Jennifer: Sinjun wants me to sign some contracts.

Paul: Well, then you better hurry up.

Jennifer: Right. Right. Thank you so much.

Paul: You're welcome.

Jennifer: Bye.

Paul: Come on, James, call.

Craig: So do I have to call you deputy? Or will you still answer to Simon?

Simon: You can call me whatever you want, Craig. Just don't tell Katie you saw me here. I want to protect her from that psycho, Steinbeck. All right?

Craig: All right, well, if you tell me everything you find.

Simon: No, I report to Margo. If she wants to bring you in on this, that's her business.

Craig: Oh, come on, Simon.

Simon: No.

Craig: Do you remember how you felt when Katie was lost on that island? Huh? Well, somewhere in this house, there is a clue that will lead us to Carly. Now, if you're not gonna help me, I'm gonna tear it apart on my own.

Simon: All right, fine. Okay. I found this upstairs. It's quite possible that Julia dropped it when she was here.

Craig: Sil -- sildenafil citrate? What's that?

Simon: I have no idea.

Craig: Well, let's find somebody who does.

Hal: I can't go into detail. But I want you to know that everything that I have done has been part of a plan.

Margo: Are you working alone?

Hal: No.

Margo: Then with whom?

Hal: I can't say.

Margo: Hal, it's not gonna get past me.

Hal: The bureau.

Margo: The FBI is in on this?

Hal: No more questions, Margo. That's all I can say.

Margo: Does the commissioner know about it?

Hal: I can't say. No more questions.

Margo: Hal, I'm just -- I'm asking. You know, the bloody clothes -- your disappearing for weeks --

Hal: I needed for it to appear that I was no longer a factor in the Steinbeck case.

Margo: Okay, Hal, but what about all the people who care about you? I mean, the least you could have done was --

Hal: That's enough! I will not tolerate talk back from my subordinates.

Margo: That's what I am to you, a subordinate?

Hal: Did something change while I was away? Then the answer is yes.

Margo: Okay. You're the chief of detectives. And I have no right to interrogate you.

Hal: Thank you.

Margo: Did it work, Hal?

Hal: What?

Margo: All the secrecy. Did you find out anything about Rose and Carly and Emily?

Hal: I'm still working on it. But there is one thing that I do know. There is no evidence linking James Steinbeck to those kidnappings. He didn't do it, Margo. Which is why wherever Jack ran off to, he's wasting his time.

[Jack remembering]

Carly: We are so lucky to have found each other again, Jack.

Will you promise me you won't forget that?

Jack: No, I won't. Nothing can come between us from now

on, not Julia, stupid fights about Craig - nothing. I need you so much.

Julia: Jack? Oh, Jack?

Jack: Carly? Carly, is that you?

Julia: Hey, g-man, are you ready for a little fun?

Jack: Bad idea, Julia.

Julia: Julia? Here, in our little love cove?

Jack: I know what you're doing, Julia, and it's not gonna work.

Julia: Stop calling me that.

Jack: No.

Julia: I'm Carly Tenney.

Jack: No.

Julia: The only woman you desire.

Jack: No, no, I'm telling you, this is never gonna work.

Julia: Wrong again, lover. It already is.

Jack: Get off me! Get --

Julia: I'm wearing Carly's clothes. That's her music. You smell that? Hmm? That's Carly's perfume.

Jack: I am not having sex with you.

Julia: I'm wearing her lipstick. That do anything for you?

Jack: No.

Julia: You're lying. But your body is telling the truth.

[Jack groans]

Simon: What, so this stuff is Viagra?

Craig: That's what my doctor said. I guess Police work is a little tougher on Jack than we realized.

Simon: That's a pretty soft explanation.

Craig: You mean you think it's a deeper issue?

Simon: Listen, listen. If Jack was taking Viagra, he'd be taking it in pill form, not this -- this -- wait a second.

Craig: What?

Simon: Julia, right?

Craig: What do you mean? You think Julia's worried about her sex drive?

Simon: No, listen, listen, listen, listen. Julia gets sprung from the hospital, right?

Craig: Right.

Simon: She can go anywhere in the world, but she doesn't. She comes back here to Oakdale, straight back here to her ex-husband, carrying this.

Craig: Well, I know she is obsessed with the baby she lost when she was married to Jack.

Simon: Exactly. Exactly. Julia wants Jack to get her pregnant, all right? But she knows how much Jack can't stand her so she brings this for a little bit of friendly persuasion.

Craig: Okay, but so what?

Simon: I don't know. I don't know . Wait, wait, wait. Margo said that Julia did have help getting out of the hospital -- forged papers, money, transportation.

Craig: Steinbeck?

Simon: He's the obvious choice, right? But why would he help her?

Craig: Maybe he knew Jack was on to something, so he sent the crackpot ex-wife to stop him.

Simon: That's possible, I guess. Margo said Jack was on his way to Marseilles though.

Craig: I got to go. I have to go.

Simon: Where are -- where are you going?

Craig: Wherever will lead me to Carly.

Margo: Barbara already confessed to working with Steinbeck, that she got him to remove Carly and Emily and Rose from her life.

Hal: Did you bring James in for questioning?

Margo: Of course I did. He denied everything.

Hal: See?

Margo: What?

Hal: Steinbeck is arrogant. If he had kidnapped those women, he couldn't help but gloat about it.

Margo: Hal, you're just gonna leave it at that?

Hal: We've already got a confession from Barbara, and let's run with that.

Margo: Wait a minute, Hal. You're actually saying that James Steinbeck -- that James Steinbeck, who has terrorized this town for decades, is innocent? And Barbara Ryan, the woman you've loved most of your life, pulled something off like this without his help?

Hal: Well, I can't change the truth, Margo -- not even for Barbara.

Billy: So, should I cancel the call to Megan?

Bonnie: Yes!

Isaac: No!

Billy: Okay, I'll just tell her to chill.

Bonnie: You called Megan? Why?

Isaac: Because, once you were crowned duchess of the Lakeview, I didn't think you were showing up for your shift.

Bonnie: Did I ever say that?

Isaac: No, you were too busy drooling over your crown.

Bonnie: And you were too cowardly to come out of the shadows and ask me about it.

Isaac: Look, I was angry, and with good reason.

Bonnie: And what reason is that?

Isaac: I'm not going to say it.

Bonnie: Because you don't know. Because you didn't get there in enough time to hear me tell Ian that I don't want him or his coronet.

Isaac: You told him that?

Bonnie: Yes. And where were you? One step behind, as usual.

Isaac: Well, I would have been there earlier but, you know, the traffic on Eighth, there's construction going on there.

Bonnie: They finished it, and you know it.

Isaac: Okay, all right. Wait a minute. You said that headpiece was a surprise. Now, what's up with the double-talk?

Bonnie: I wanted to protect you from seeing it.

Isaac: Then why did you bring it to work?

Bonnie: Because it's worth a fortune and I didn't want to leave it with anyone.

Isaac: You should've left it at home.

Bonnie: I didn't want to be late for my shift. Hey, you know what? This was a big, big mistake. I don't know how I could've ever convinced myself to even --

Isaac: That what?

Bonnie: Never mind.

Isaac: Wait. Don't you even want to know why I was looking for you?

Bonnie: Frankly, Isaac, I'm afraid to ask.

Isaac: I bought you a present.

Bonnie: They're exquisite. I never knew you had such good taste.

Isaac: Well, if my ancestors hadn't had sold their castle, I would've bought you a bracelet to match.

Bonnie: Is there an occasion?

Isaac: No.

Bonnie: Then --

Isaac: Then I saw them, I saw you -- both beautiful, classy, full of life, real.

Bonnie: That's very sweet, and very un-Isaac.

Isaac: You think you know me, do you? You got a long way to go.

Bonnie: Do you want me to know you, Isaac? Or is that just too frightening for you?

Isaac: Frightening? You bet it is. But with you, I'm willing to take the chance.

Bonnie: I want you to know me, too. The good, the bad --

Isaac: But no ugly. That, I'll never be able to see.

Bonnie: Isaac --

Isaac: Stay with me, Bonnie. Let's just ride this thing as far as we can take it.

Hal: Barbara walked in here and confessed to punishable crimes. We can't ignore that, Margo. We have to take it seriously.

Margo: But, Hal, no sympathy, no caring. Hal, I'm sorry, you seem like you're a different person.

Hal: I know I've given you a lot to deal with today, Margo. But I promise you, it'll all make sense in the end.

Margo: Will it?

Hal: Yes, it will.

Margo: Okay, Hal. Okay. If you say so, then that's good enough for me.

Hal: Right now, I'm off to see the commissioner. And then I'm gonna see Jennifer and Will.

Margo: Good, take your time. I know that they've missed you.

Hal: Well, I don't have that much time. We need to find Jack as soon as possible.

Julia: God, she has like nothing in her fridge. I finally found this frozen pizza. It doesn't look that bad.

Jack: No, thanks.

Julia: Come on, just one itsy, bitsy bite? Now, don't go feeling like you've compromised your morals or something, Jack. You couldn't help yourself, you're a man.

Jack: That's very comforting.

Julia: Are you trying to tell me that you didn't enjoy yourself at all?

Jack: I'd rather have my other ankle broken, thank you.

Julia: Don't tempt me. Gosh, Jack, you sure do know how to make a woman feel appreciated. Come on, before it gets cold.

Jack: I said, no!

Julia: Fine. Starve. Do you realize what could be happening in my body right now? One of your little guys could be squirming his way on -- sorry, no need to get graphic.

Jack: Okay, now that you got what you wanted, can't you let me loose and get me the hell out of here?

Julia: Not yet, silly. I got to make sure that you impregnated me.

Jack: I thought you were ovulating.

Julia: Yeah, but we don't want to take any chances, Jack. We have to do this again and again and again. As often as you can get interested.

Jack: For how long?

Julia: To be safe? Two weeks. And then if I'm not pregnant after that, we'll have to wait until next month.

Bonnie: I've always longed for a nobleman, but I thought that meant having a title and a crest. But you -- you are a nobleman of the heart. You have courage and honor and principles --

Billy: Isaac, I think you need to check this out.

Isaac: Go away.

Billy: No, I'm serious. Isaac?

Isaac: What?

Billy: Check it out. Looks like the duke brought some reinforcements.

Bonnie: Daddy!

Duncan: Hi, sweetheart. Ian called me with the news. So my wee lassie's gonna be a duchess after all.

Paul: What do you want, mom?

Barbara: Well, I respected your privacy enough not to use my key. Would you be polite enough to invite me in? Thank you. Is Jennifer here?

Paul: Nope.

Barbara: Will?

Paul: Sleeping.

Barbara: Well, as much as I'd love to see them, it's probably just as well. We need to talk, Paul.

Paul: Why?

Barbara: Because the way that you threatened your father down at the Police station was very disturbing to me. I don't think you realize --

Paul: Did he send you here?

Barbara: What?

Paul: Did he send you here? I'm warning you, mom, I'm not playing any games with you.

Barbara: What are you talking about?

Paul: James said he'd be contacting me tonight. And I'm thinking he might be doing it through you.

Barbara: Contacting you? Why would he be doing that?

Paul: He's going to tell me where I can find Rose.

Barbara: Something about that doesn't sound right, Paul.

Paul: I know.

Margo: Okay. Did you find anything worthwhile?

Simon: Yeah, just a little prescription for sexual longevity.

Margo: Oh, my God.

Simon: Yeah. We think Julia was using it on Jack so he could -- so he could have sex with her.

Margo: What?

Simon: So she could get pregnant. It's just a theory.

Margo: That's good then, actually. It's a reason for her to keep him alive.

Simon: Exactly.

Margo: Okay, so, I'll have this dusted for prints.

Simon: Okay, great. Anything else I can do?

Margo: Hal is back.

Simon: Really? Where's he been?

Margo: He was off trying to find Rose and Carly and Emily. He thought that if people thought he was missing, he'd be more effective.

Simon: And was he?

Margo: No, not that I could tell.

Simon: Did you tell him that I was working for you?

Margo: You know, I don't intend to.

Simon: Why not?

Margo: You know, I don't know how to say this, but Hal is -- well, he's different. I mean, I don't know. Maybe he got hurt while he was away or -- I just think, if we keep Hal in the dark, we've got more of a chance of finding Jack.

Jack: People are going to be looking for me, Julia! You're never gonna get away with this!

Julia: Why do you always have to be so negative? Why can't you look on the bright side?

Jack: Which is?

Julia: We'll be together, Jack. I'll read you poetry, give you those nice, long back massages you like so much. And all you have to do is me.

Jack: All right. All right, so say no one finds us. What happens after two weeks?

Julia: Well, I will be pregnant. And you will have served your purpose.

Jack: Then you'll let me go?

Julia: I would love to, but I can't. See, knowing you, you'd have to start one of your big investigations and just make a lot more out of this than necessary.

Jack: Julia! Julia, you can't keep me tied up here forever!

Julia: Oh, I know. That's why I'm gonna have to kill you.

Hal: Hello? Anybody here?

James: Hal, my dear, loyal friend. Pleasure to see you, as always.

Hal: I'm here to report.

James: Good. Was everyone thrilled at your return?

Hal: Yes.

James: That's wonderful. And you had no problems readjusting?

Hal: No.

James: Good. Good. Then everything's proceeding according to plan.
