Mitzi: You must be cold. Why don't you come inside. I'll make you a nice hot cup of something.

Paul: I don't need tea, Mitzi. I need you to get Rose to see me.

Mitzi: I'm sorry, Paul. I can't do that.

Paul: Can't, or won't?

Mitzi: You know Rose. I mean, once she gets somethin' in that stubborn noodle of hers, there's no talkin' her out of it.

Paul: Okay. Well, at least make some sense out of this for me. I mean, last thing I knew was I was on the phone with her. Everything was fine. She couldn't wait to see me. And then I get over to Lily's, she sends me away. You know why, don't you, Mitzi?

Mitzi: What did Lily say exactly?

Paul: She claimed Rose was sick.

Mitzi: Well, she wasn't lyin'.

Paul: What, she got sick in Europe or in that spa? Why didn't she tell me? Why isn't she in a hospital?

Mitzi: She wanted to stay at Lily's. Dr. Dixon is treating her there.

Paul: For what? Treating her for what, Mitzi? Come on, tell me. You've gotta tell me. There might be something that I can do to help.

Mitzi: It's her face.

Paul: Her face?

Mitzi: What are you gonna do?

Paul: I'm gonna find Rose and I'm gonna get down on my knees if that's what it takes to convince her I still love her and that nothing will change that.

Rose: Oh, no, no, no, no! You did this. Don't try to act surprised now.

Barbara: You think I had something to do with your face?

Rose: Yes, you did! You and James Steinbeck, your boyfriend.

Barbara: I never told James to hurt you. I never told James to hurt anyone.

Rose: You know what, lady, you can deny it from now until the second coming. I will not believe anything you say.

Barbara: James was going to get you out of town. That's all. But beyond that, he didn't confide in me.

Rose: You know, if you want to deny it to the Police Department, but your son, fine. But right here, right now, it's you and me. Just us. So I need to know the truth.

Barbara: I swear to you. I am telling you the truth.

Rose: Would you listen to me! Look at me! I'm not doing good here, okay? I look in the mirror and I see an old lady that I don't recognize. So if you never do another decent thing in your life, please, just do this one thing for me. And tell me -- am I dying, or what?

Jake: Molly, Molly! Kim's outside, she's hurt. Call an ambulance, all right?

Abigail: What? Jake, what?

Adam: Oh, no, oh, no. Take it easy.

Jake: She's coming to. She's coming to.

Adam: Take it easy. What happened? Are you okay?

Kim: I don't know. Somebody came up and hit me from behind.

Jake: Kim, don't move, okay? We don't know how bad you're hurt.

Kim: Oh, oh.

Molly: The ambulance should be right here. Oh, my God, Kim. Are you okay?

Jake: Somebody -- somebody hit her pretty hard.

Kim: I don't believe it.

Jake: Did you see who it was?

Kim: Oh, I wasn't paying any attention. I was so focused on getting the tape back.

Abigail: Wait, did you have it with you?

Kim: Yeah. It's right in my bag here. Oh, my gosh. Oh, God. Do you see it?

Adam: No, no, no, no.

Jake: It's okay.

Kim: But it would have given us a better look at the woman Abigail remembered. Oh, it's gone, isn't it? Whoever did this to me took it. Oh.

Abigail: How's Kim?

Adam: It looks like she's gonna be all right.

Abigail: It was that woman that was in the room when Nick died. She stole those tapes because she didn't want us to identify her. I wish I could remember more than just her shoes and her nail polish. Why can't I just remember her face? What is wrong with me?

Adam: You will, Abigail, you will.

Abigail: But when? After 20 years in prison, or when more people I love are hurt or worse?

Adam: We're getting closer.

Abigail: You and I both know what could have happened when she set that gas leak. And now she's hurt someone who was just trying to help us.

Jake: But it's still not a bad thing that this lady's running scared trying to protect herself. It just proves that we're getting closer to the truth.

Abigail: What if I don't remember, Jake?

Jake: Well, I'm starting to think that your memory is becoming less and less important.

Abigail: How?

Jake: Well, this lady, whoever she is, is running scared and she's getting careless hurting people. And every time she makes a desperate move, it proves that you didn't kill Nick Scudder.

Lily: Paul, you're back?

Paul: I can't take no for an answer this time. I have to see Rose.

Lily: I'm sorry, but she's gone.

Paul: Lily, please don't cover for her anymore. Something has happened --

Lily: I am not covering for her. She's not here. I'm telling you the truth. I am not just putting you off.

Paul: Just tell me where she is and she and I can sort this out ourselves.

Lily: I cannot allow you to ambush my sister when she's not ready to see you right now.

Paul: "Ambush"? Mitzi told me it had something to do with Rose's face.

Lily: Mitzi. Mitzi. Oh, I know she adores Rose. She should not have betrayed her confidence like that.

Paul: Mitzi told me because she trusted I could handle whatever was happening here. She trusted my love for Rose, and all I'm asking is for you to give me that same chance.

Lily: I trust you. I do trust you, Rose trusts you.

Paul: Are you sure?

Lily: It's not that. Yes.

Paul: Are you sure Rose hasn't had a change of heart because of the way I treated her before she got kidnapped?

Lily: What is happening with Rose is not your fault. That's all I have to say.

Paul: No, whatever's happened to her is because of plans my screwed up parents set in motion! And if that weren't enough, I accused her of cheating on me with the non-existent Vince O'malley. And what did she do? Instead of kicking me out of her life, she begged me to believe in her, believe in us. But I didn't, so she got taken away thinking I had lost all faith in her. Can you imagine? Miles away from everyone she knew, terrified, not knowing if she was ever going to get home again, and on top of it all, not knowing whether or not the man she loved really loved her back. Can't you see, Lily? There's so many things that she needs to hear me say. I mean, I've got to tell her I love her. I've got to tell her that I'm sorry. I -- I need her. I need her. Please, tell me where she is.

Rose: I want you to answer me! I know -- I know you still have a shred of decency left in that petrified heart of yours. Now you tell me, what did that Dr. Frankenstein do to my face?

Barbara: I don't know. I didn't want him to hurt you. I didn't want him to hurt any of you.

Rose: Are you -- what did you think was gonna happen? He has us kidnapped and gets rid of us, it's not gonna hurt us?

Barbara: I don't know why James did this to you, Rose. And there's nothing that I can do to undo it.

Rose: You have no idea what that crazy Dr. Weston did to my face?

Barbara: No, because I didn't ask.

Rose: You didn't ask. Right. The hickory-smoked Barbara's too upset to worry about the three women that she shanghaied? Too concerned about her own problems she doesn't worry that there were three women looking into the mirror and turned into old crones? I don't see that. I don't believe it for a second. I think you're responsible, and I think you can fix it.

Barbara: Listen to me, all right? I accept no irresponsibility in this, but I can't fix this. James left me no information, no details. Only he can take care of this. Only he can stop it.

Rose: Where is he? Where's James?

Barbara: In a coma.

Rose: He's in a coma? He's sleeping, taking a nap? Very convenient for you, isn't it, Barbara?

Barbara: There was another accident out at the boathouse, and he was hurt. He's been unconscious ever since.

Rose: He left us there in that spa. Are you telling me you have no idea where that is -- or what that Dr. Weston did to us? So you're telling me that you have no idea what's happening to my face? I left Carly weeks ago. And Emily -- poor Emily, I told her that if I got out first, I'd go back and find her. How am I going to find them now, Barbara?!

Hal: "Poor Emily." Why did you say "poor Emily"?

[Bonnie sighs]

Ian: My dearest Bonnie, the sun is melting the frost from the poplar

trees and warming the air for the first buds of spring.

But still I find myself inexplicably cold. I wear too many sweaters

and refuse to leave the fireside. Everyone thinks I should see a physician, but

I already know what ails me. My Bonnie's no longer beside me.

I could hardly blame you, of course. I behaved badly, and there's no reason to

expect you to listen to another apology, but you should know that as long as I live,

I will always regret the day I caused the most beautiful woman in the world to walk out of

my life. Whenever I think of you, the graceful way you tilt your head when you're

listening, the gentle sound of your laugh, I always think, "Bonnie, my fiancee, the woman

I will marry." And then I'm jolted back from my dream and I shiver.

I'm cold without my fair lassie. Cold without the only woman whom I've ever loved,

the only woman who I would have made my wife. So I pull my cardigan more tightly around me

and hope against hope that maybe somewhere in your heart, you are missing Scotland,

missing your home, missing me.

Your beloved, Ian.

Ben: I hope my baby brother's not the one who's got you so upset.

Kim: Oh, just watch it. Listen, where are the phones in this place? I keep asking. I need to call the newsroom. I want them to have the details about this.

John: Woak can wait.

Bob: Are you all right? One of the nurses told me you were just brought in.

Kim: I'm fine. I am fine.

Bob: I'm glad I was still on duty. Did you examine her?

John: Yes, I did. Scalp lacerations, small hematoma.

Kim: A cut, a bruise. I am fine. No one needs --

John: I'd like her to have a C.A.T. scan to make sure there is no concussion.

Kim: John, come on.

John: You were unconscious when Jake Mckinnon found you.

Bob: Then that settles it. Would you order the C.A.T. scan?

Kim: Honey, this is nothing.

Bob: What is the matter with you?

Kim: What?

Bob: What are you doing outside of Al's diner at night alone?

Kim: It was barely dinner time. You make it sound like it's skid row. It's right across the street from the Police station.

Bob: That's no excuse. Don't you think you're a little old to be going --

[Kim gasps]

Kim: Don't I think I'm "a little old to" -- how do -- how do you know what I was doing?

Bob: Well, my staff keeps me informed. Leave the sleuthing to the detectives.

Margo: That'd be me.

Kim: Wonderful. I suppose you're here to scold me, too?

Margo: Well, I was considering it, but I think Bob has covered my safety speech.

Kim: All right. All right, then I want to take this opportunity to get something on the record.

Margo: What's that?

Kim: I know for a fact that Abigail did not kill Nick Scudder. The child is innocent. I intend to use everything at my disposal, up to and including Woak, to make sure that everybody else knows it, too.

Holden: Hey, I got your call. What's going on?

Molly: Holden, I'm not going to beat around the bush. We just don't feel that our apartment is the safest place for Abigail right now.

Holden: Why?

Molly: Kim -- Kim was helping the kids i.d. the woman on that Woak surveillance tape. She got knocked out, and they stole the tape.

Holden: And where was Abigail when all this happened?

Molly: Just a few feet away, right inside Al's.

Holden: Sounds like this woman knows where Abigail is and what she's doing.

Molly: Right, exactly. And now that we know she's out there and she's dangerous, we have to keep Abigail safe. So Jake and I think she should move in with you for a little while.

Abigail: No, I'm not running away from this.

Adam: No, see, Abigail, this isn't running away. You have to protect yourself, okay? We need to fix this so this woman can't find you.

Abigail: No, it's like Jake said -- this woman is getting desperate. I won't hide. If I do, she's gonna give up and she's gonna leave town in a couple weeks and then I'll go to jail for Nick's murder. This woman is after me. Then let's let her expose herself trying to find me.

Molly: Abigail, I won't let you set yourself up as bait.

Abigail: Molly, this is not your decision to make, it's mine.

Paul: Aren't there some things, Lily, that you feel like you can only face with Holden by your side, the man you love? I've confided in Rose. I've told her things that I've never told anybody. She's done the same with me. She needs me now.

Lily: I know, and I agree with you. But I can't help you right now.

Paul: How long have we known each other, Lily?

Lily: Forever. Since the beginning of time.

Paul: You've seen me angry, jealous, holding grudges, everything, right?

Lily: Right.

Paul: But have you ever known me to be a shallow person?

Lily: No. You see people for what they really are, and I admire that about you very much.

Paul: Okay, so then what makes you think I'm gonna be put off by the way Rose looks?

Lily: It's complicated.

Paul: Try me.

Lily: Maybe you don't know Rose as well as you think you do. You're a man. Looks are different to you. You do the looking. But, Rose, beauty is extremely important to her. How do you think she got to the top of her game in Atlantic City? By taking care of her face and her body. And she made her living for years based on the way she looks, and who she is, is encompassed in that. It's who she is.

Paul: Okay, then we'll find a way to make her look however she wants to look. There's cosmetic surgeons, doctors --

Lily: Look, you don't seem to understand. What your mother and James Steinbeck did to Rose may not be able to be fixed with plastic surgery. It may not be able to be fixed at all. When John Dixon looked at her, he said he's never seen anything like that before in his life.

Paul: So this is more than just a skin problem.

Lily: The reason Rose doesn't want to see you -- the reason why she's terrified is because no one has any idea what's happening to her face, or why, or if it can be fixed, or if it's ever going to go away, or it's going to kill her!

Rose: Don't look at me like that.

Hal: I need to know about Emily. Where is she?

Rose: I don't know. Ask your ex-wife.

Hal: She was with you, though, right?

Rose: Yeah. At that horrible place they called a health spa.

Hal: Emily called me.

Rose: Yes. Yes, we called from the spa. We stole a phone.

Hal: I was coming to get you?

Rose: Yes, we thought you were, but then you -- you never came.

Hal: I called Jack. I told him that I had spoken to Emily. Jack was coming over and -- why didn't I come get you?

Rose: Is he okay?

Barbara: That's what I've been trying to tell you.

Hal: What happened to Emily?

Rose: I don't know. Last time I saw her at the spa -- remember we told you about the snow and the glass and the -- there was this doctor that did these things. He gave us this tea and gave us these treatments, and that's what happened to my skin.

Hal: Is Emily hurt, too?

Rose: I don't know. Dr. Weston took Carly first and then Emily. And I think they're probably both dead, thanks to Barbara.

Barbara: James did this. James, Rose.

Hal: James. I must protect James.

Rose: James? What are you talking about?

Barbara: Hal, Hal, look at me. Look at me. Look at me, okay? Now, I accept my part in all of this, but James is the one that took Emily from you. James. You were so close to finding her, remember? But James is the one who stopped you. He hypnotized you or brainwashed you or something. Something he's done to you. And he's made you believe that he's worth your loyalty and your protection. But you've got to fight it. You've got to fight whatever he's programmed into your brain. Hal, you know what's true, what's real.

[Hal remembering]

Emily: I miss you. And I need you, Hal, more than I've needed anybody

in my whole life.

Hal: You hold on, okay? And you tell Rose and Carly that everybody

here's been worried sick about 'em, but we never gave up hope.

So don't you give up, either, okay?

Emily: Okay. I love you, Hal.

I love you more than anything in my life.

Please, just find us.

James: The king of spades. You remember, Hal.

When you see him, you'll know what to do.

Barbara: Do you hear me, Hal? You know what to believe. You know the truth.

Hal: James hurt me.

Bonnie: Isaac and I had an argument. Then I walked out.

Ben: On his birthday. Curtis was pretty bummed that there's not gonna be a party.

Bonnie: Oh, no. Oh, no, I completely forgot you and Curtis were coming by Java to celebrate. It's like I forgot everything except for how angry I was.

Ben: Yeah, Isaac told me about the young woman who showed up for her date.

Bonnie: A date he made on the very day he stood in the middle of that club and declared his love for me.

Ben: Look, if I remember right, you two managed to have a fight the same day that he made this big declaration. Didn't you?

Bonnie: So what? One little tiff and then he just forgets that he loves me and moves on down the line to bachelorette number two? So much for commitment. What? You don't think I should be upset?

Ben: No, I think you feel how you feel, but Isaac did apologize, didn't he?

Bonnie: An apology just won't do, Ben. I thought your brother was the kind of guy that comes along once in a lifetime. But as it turns out -- well, he's not.

Ben: Sounds like you're the one who's moving on down the line.

Bonnie: I need to get away for a while.

Ben: Back to Scotland?

Bonnie: Maybe. I haven't seen my father in a while and -- what? I still lean on my father's shoulder from time to time.

Ben: Well, that's cool if that's really the shoulder that you're looking to lean on.

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

Ben: I'm talking about your duke. What's his name? Ivan?

Bonnie: Ian.

Ben: Ian.

Bonnie: And give me one reason why I shouldn't wanna see him.

Ben: Isaac.

Bonnie: Isaac and I are -- Ian wrote me a beautiful letter.

Ben: Nice paper.

Bonnie: He says he's sorry for hurting me.

Ben: Well, Isaac says he's sorry, too.

Bonnie: Ian wants to marry me. Not that I'm considering it, but I might see him. Hey, if Isaac can make a date, I can, too.

Ben: Hey, cool. I mean, since it's over between you and Isaac. That's what you're saying, isn't it? What was between you and Isaac, it's over. You're going back to your duke.

Abigail: Is there something you haven't told me?

Molly: I spoke with Nick's landlady today. And honey, I think she's got a clue that's gonna help us find who this mystery woman is.

Abigail: You told her about that? I wasn't sure that you were convinced there even was a woman in the room that night.

Molly: Abigail, you've been walking around afraid that I didn't believe you?

Abigail: How could I help it? You and Jake -- it just didn't seem that you guys got how important it was remembering who this woman was.

Molly: Honey, Jake and I have never stopped trying to find a way to prove that you're innocent. Okay, maybe we went about it the wrong way. Obviously we did. We didn't include you, and we should've. I just -- I didn't wanna get your hopes up.

Abigail: Well, just the other day when we had the gas leak, you and Jake said you would help me out. And you said all the right things, and then you didn't do anything.

Molly: Honey, I'm so sorry that we made you think that.

Abigail: Well, it's just that, you know -- that's why I left when you guys told me to stay. I just had to find answers.

Molly: Because you thought that if you didn't, nobody else would.

Abigail: Yeah. I should've trusted you.

Molly: I should've recognized that you were capable of handling a lot more than I thought. But know this, sweetheart -- I have never stopped believing in you. Not for a second.

Jake: Okay. I mean, according to the landlady, Nick's lady on the side had a couple of kids. And one of 'em dropped a toy.

Tom: And never returned?

Jake: No. But no. But it could be our first real clue.

Tom: If the landlady can be trusted, which, frankly, doesn't sound very likely.

Holden: Now, what kind of clue are you gonna get from a toy? They're mass-produced. Kids, they drop 'em everywhere.

Jake: I don't know, Holden. You were tracked all the way to Malta by a lollipop.

Abigail: Holden, can I talk to you for a minute?

Holden: Sure, honey. What's up?

Abigail: I was thinking that maybe staying with you and Lily was not a bad idea after all.

Holden: Well, good, good. I'm glad you reconsidered.

Abigail: It's just I'm a little worried about Luke and Faith. And if a target that something --

Holden: No, no, no, don't worry about that. Don't you remember all the stuff that we put in after Malta? The security codes, the cameras. The place is like Ft. Knox.

Abigail: Okay. I think I left stuff over there before, so I can just go over with you right now.

Holden: I would love that. Don't you worry, okay? We're gonna get through this. Everything's gonna be okay.

Tom: Did I interrupt something? It's so thick here, you could cut it with a knife.

Kim: What I am trying to do is explain to Margo that I was attacked because I had some tapes in my possession. Tapes that validated Abigail's claim that there was somebody else in Nick's room when he was murdered. Now, there was another woman in his life, and whoever she was, it is common sense that she would be a prime suspect now.

Bob: All right, just calm down, or I'm gonna have to give you a sedative.

Kim: Why? Because I'm telling her that her case doesn't hold water?

Margo: All right, listen. I really want Abigail Williams to be innocent. Honestly, I do. Nothing would make my life easier at this point. But I am a cop. And I have to go on facts, not just common sense, as you say.

Kim: But I was attacked!

Margo: Yes, and that's awful. I feel terrible about that. But the fact remains, your purse was stolen, not just the tapes.

Kim: So you intend to ignore this?

Margo: No. On the contrary, I'm going to investigate it fully. But again, the facts say that you were struck from behind and money was stolen.

Kim: And as far as you're concerned, this is just another one of those random muggings.

Margo: Until there's something else that proves otherwise, that is exactly how I have to think. Kim, you were mugged. That's all.

Paul: Well, there's got to be something I can do. I barely got Rose back. I can't lose her again.

Lily: This might be something you can't fix.

Paul: That's crazy. I've got money. I know a ton of people!

Lily: I got money! My mother has money! You don't think my mother would do everything she could to help Rose?!

Paul: Lily, just -- please, where is she?!

Lily: I already told you the truth so that you wouldn't confront her. Please give her some space.

Paul: I'm not going to confront her! I'm gonna be there for her if she reaches out and needs a hand to hold.

Lily: Rose needs some time. She said alone. You have to respect that!

Paul: Could you? If it were Holden who were hurt or sick, could you? You know, I told you -- I realize how badly I treated Rose. And I understand that that might not sit very well with you. It's in your blood to protect your sister, but do you really believe that she doesn't need me right now? I promise you, I won't push. But I just gotta tell her that I'm -- that I'm still here. And I didn't just love because of what she looks like. I love her. And don't you think she deserves to know that before she decides whether or not she wants me out of her life?

Lily: Wait. Rose is at Fairwinds.

Hal: Do you really think Emily is dead?

Rose: I don't know. I just haven't seen her in such a long time. I can't help but think that both of them probably could be.

Barbara: Hal, where have you hidden James?

Rose: James? You got James? So all that information in that head is out there somewhere? Where is he?

Barbara: Hal -- Hal, I know that you think that you are helping him, but James is in a coma. Do you understand? Hal, if James dies, we'll never find Emily and Carly.

Barbara: Where are you going?

Hal: I need to deal with James --

Barbara: No, no, no, I'm going with you.

Hal: -- In my own way!

Barbara: Rose?!

Rose: No. You go out there. You go find Steinbeck right now. Then maybe you can save all of us!

Kim: Don't let this go.

Margo: Kim, I know that you hired Nick Scudder to work for you at the station, and I know that Molly asked you to fire him the first day that he was there, and you didn't.

Kim: So? What, you think this is about my feeling guilty? Well, yes. I wish that I had listened to Molly's reservations and done something sooner. I wished -- I'd give anything in the world if Abigail hadn't gotten involved with this guy. And I would -- I wish to God I had seen what he was.

Margo: Oh, it's a sad day when we realize we're human. You know, that always takes me by surprise.

Kim: Whether this is about my trying to make amends or not, don't you see it isn't important? The important thing is it's about instincts.

Margo: Oh, Kim, how?

Kim: When I hired Nick Scudder, I ignored Molly's instincts. I don't want you to make the same mistake. What I'm asking for here is for you to trust me. I'm telling you -- this was not just a mugging. I am positive that Abigail is still in danger.

Lily: We have a roast and a salad, and we have pasta. I know you love pasta.

Abigail: I'm not too hungry.

Lily: Okay.

Abigail: I'll just get something later, if that's okay.

Lily: I remade your room. And we have towels -- you know where they are. We have a thousand towels, as you know.

Abigail: Thank you. Thanks.

Holden: Rose come back yet?

Lily: No.

Holden: Rough day, huh?

Lily: You're gonna have a rough night. Want some company?

Holden: Nah. I'll call you if I need you, okay?

Lily: Okay. Good luck.

Holden: It's been a while since you stayed here. Feels good, though, right? Can I get you anything?

Abigail: No.

Holden: Tired?

Abigail: Not really.

Holden: You know what? You know what I do for Faith when she's sad? Get her that little bunny with the one ear that she loves, and it just fixes her right up. And with Luke? It's just a little guy talk, a couple of chocolate chip cookies, and he's fine.

Abigail: What about Lily?

Holden: Oh, Lily? She's easy. All I do for her is get her a cup of hot chocolate with a little peppermint schnapps, and she's great. But you, my dear, I certainly cannot give you a bunny 'cause you're too old for that. I can't give you any peppermint schnapps, either. So what can I do for you? How can I make you feel better?

Abigail: I don't know.

Holden: I'll tell you what I'm gonna do. I'm just gonna give you some time alone.

Abigail: There was this one day -- just as school started. I aced a quiz, and the professor said that I was a great example. Adam and I went to the student union to have lunch, and he kissed me. And he left for class, and I just stood there with a big grin on my face. And I turned around to go, and there was a rainbow. I thought -- I had to laugh. I mean, it just -- it was so perfect. And I didn't know how any day could be that perfect. But there it was. It was a rainbow and it was all mine, a promise written across the sky. I want it back.

Ben: I am not judging you. You can love, date, marry, whoever you want. All I'm saying is don't leave my baby brother hanging.

Bonnie: Isaac is so great sometimes.

Ben: And other times?

Bonnie: And other times, I just want to throttle him.

Ben: Well, you know, your mother says the same thing about you.

Bonnie: Huh, she should talk.

Ben: Yeah, well, okay, nobody's perfect. We've settled that.

Bonnie: Then there's Ian.

Ben: Oh, I see. And Ian's imperfections come along with a royal title, is that it?

Bonnie: Exactly. I was only supposed to be in Oakdale a few months. I wasn't supposed to fall in love, and certainly not with someone who is so different from me. How I've managed to fit into Isaac's world, I don't know. But I did. And now my question to you is, do you really think he'll be able to fit into mine?

Ben: If he loves somebody, Isaac can move mountains. So the real question is, do you want him to fit into your world?

Bonnie: I don't know. And I don't even know if I want to keep doing this -- Oakdale. It's been great and challenging and all that, but Scotland is my home. And Ian -- it's like my mind just keeps going in circles.

Ben: There's only one thing I can tell you.

Bonnie: Cut myself in two?

Ben: Our father treated Isaac like he was never good enough. And that sticks with a man for a long time. I think Isaac deserves to have a woman who sees him and only him. Someone who's not looking over his shoulder for the next someone better that she thinks might be out there somewhere. You want to go back to your duke, that's your business. But if you don't love Isaac all the way, don't play him. Do him a favor, leave him alone.

Holden: I cannot erase the past, but I can tell you this much. Everything that you felt that day, everything that you thought possible, that does not go away.

Abigail: Well, even if I don't go to prison. And that's a big if, I'll never be who I was.

Holden: That's all a part of growing up.

Abigail: Then why was I in such a rush to grow up, to live on my own, to have a man? I mean, just look how my life is messed up. I'm scared all the time. People I care about are getting hurt.

Holden: That's not because you wanted to be an adult.

Abigail: No, it's -- it's because I had to have Nick. I have made so many mistakes.

Holden: You tell me one person who hasn't made a whole bunch of mistakes.

Abigail: But I just can't seem to get anything right.

Holden: I know it feels that way now, but you know what? That is not necessarily so. You know how Molly, Jake and Lily and I tell you that you need to trust us? We mean that. You do need to trust us. But I think there is something that we don't tell you enough, and that's we trust you.

Abigail: Even after Nick?

Holden: Even after Nick. Nick fooled you but, he fooled a lot of people. And one mistake, that does not define who you are.

Abigail: But that one mistake is going to ruin my life.

Holden: Not if we don't let it. You are gonna get that rainbow back. I guarantee it.

[Giggling]

Jake: Tell me -- tell me what I did so I can do it again.

Molly: Belva called. She left a message. She found the toy that woman dropped.

Jake: She did?

Molly: Yeah. We're gonna find the woman that killed Nick Scudder. We're gonna find her.

Paul: I kissed you right here in this gazebo, remember it?

[Rose gasps]

Rose: I don't want to see you.

Paul: I know, I know. I know you don't. But can you at least tell me why?

Rose: Well, then go. Just go. Please, just go. Just leave now, please.

Paul: If that's really what you want --

Rose: Yes, yes.

Paul: Okay. I guess I don't have a choice. But before I go, I just have one request. Turn around, Rose. Let me see you.

Hal: I've been trying to piece this whole thing together -- you, me, Barbara, this whole case, James. And none -- none of it makes any sense. None of it. I've done everything you asked, everything you told me to do. And none of it makes any sense. I feel this need -- I felt like I have no choice but to protect you. It was the only thing that made sense. But then I remembered something. Emily, Emily. I remembered what it felt like to be with her and to hold her. And you took her away. And that never felt right. That never felt right, James. And the more I remembered -- and the more I remembered who you are and who you've always been. You hurt people, James. You've done horrible things to people. You're my enemy. And yet, I feel this need -- I feel this need to protect you. You've done something horrible to me, James. Something that has to stop.
