Tom: Hey, what's going on?

Molly: Abigail just remembered something more.

Abigail: All of a sudden, more of that night started coming back to me. It was like I was back in Nick's room again.

Holden: And what was happening?

Abigail: Nick and Mary were arguing.

Jake: What, about you?

Abigail: No, not about me. About plane tickets.

Tom: Plane tickets?

Abigail: Yeah.

Molly: Isn't this the best news? Honey, do you remember the name on the tickets or the destination? Really try to think hard.

Abigail: I only saw one ticket. It was one of those little - in one of those little folders.

Holden: And where was it?

Abigail: It was in Nick's hand. I'm sure of that.

Holden: Do you remember anything about plane tickets in the police report?

Tom: I've memorized almost every word of that police report and there was nothing about plane tickets.

Jake: Well, they had to know that we were tight with people at the Police Department. So I'm sure they wanted to get as far away as possible.

Tom: Well, it makes good sense. But if this plane ticket was in Nick's hand - why wasn't it near his body when the police showed up?

Molly: Because - Mary took it with her after she killed him.

Rose: Lily! Wow.

Lily: Hi, Rose. Long time no see.

Rose: What are you doing back? I thought you - Luciano told me you're goin' to Emma's for some grub.

Lily: I did drive them out to the farm, but I had no intention of staying.

Rose: You fibbed to your own kid?

Lily: I had to.

Rose: With an answer like that, it's gonna keep you out of the running for the mother of the year.

Lily: I knew that you would question Luke about our plans, and I wanted him to mislead you.

Rose: To lie to me? Why?

Lily: I wanted you to think that we would be out. That's why you came downstairs - isn't it? You didn't think we'd be home, so you could come out of hiding?

Rose: I am not hiding! That is-that is ridiculous!

Lily: Look, I know when someone's avoiding me. And when it's my twin sister under the same roof -

Rose: I'm not avoiding you.

Lily: Good. Because I would hate that, Rose. Whatever it is, let's just talk about it.

Rose: I can't. Not to you.

Lily: Well, I guess not if you won't even look me in the face.

Rose: You're right. All right, every time I look at you, I see the face of what I used to be. And it-it kills me. Heaven help me. Every time I look at you, it's like a knife through my heart.

Jack: Oh, come on, have a heart. It's just one little court order to check out Craig Montgomery's phone records from the Lakeview. It's not like I'm asking for bone marrow. Yeah, well, do the best you can. Because you owe me one, that's why! You're the best.

Margo: You know, Jack, those hotel phone records aren't gonna put you any closer to knowing where Carly was when she called Craig.

Jack: No, but it may tell me who Craig called afterwards.

Margo: Well, now wait a minute. I thought that you and Craig had a full- disclosure policy when it came to Carly's welfare.

Jack: Oh, come on. Margo, has your brother ever had a full-disclosure policy with anyone and actually kept his end of it?

Margo: Well, he did tell you that Carly called.

Jack: Yeah. But he didn't tell me why. She's in trouble, Margo. She's fighting for her life, and she's looking to come home. Who's she gonna call? A guy who's done nothing but get her into trouble? Or a guy who's an expert at getting her out? Carly is finished with Craig. When she comes home, she is coming home to me. That is not ego talking, that's the truth.

Margo: All right. You're right. You're right. If you need any help getting that court order, just give me a holler. I can pull some strings for you. Man, I love my brother, but, really, I don't trust him as far as I can throw him. And that ain't far.

James: I flirted with being a surgeon once.

Craig: Not evil enough?

James: No, I prefer pistols to knives.

Doctor: Nurse, make sure there's 50 cc's in that syringe!

Nurse: 50 cc's of what?

Guard #2: Is she going to be okay?

Doctor: Oh, sure, after what we give her.

Guard #2: What is it?

Doctor: Something that would drop a charging rhino. See - magic.

James: Okay, let's get out of here.

Craig: No, we're not going anywhere. We've got trouble.

Brandy: Thank you ever so much. I've always depended on the kindness of strangers.

Guard #2: You wanna tell us why you were faking a seizure in front of Mr. Stenbeck's room?

Brandy: I did it because - because he told me to.

Guard #2: "He" who?

Brandy: Elvis!

Guard #2: "Elvis" who?

Brandy: The King. The one and only. The hip shakingest? What, are you new here or something? I'm talking about Elvis. And he's telling me something. He's telling me something right now.

Nurse: Elvis?

Brandy: Mm-hmm.

Nurse: What's he telling you?

Brandy: He's - he's telling me - he's telling me to kick this guy's butt!

Guard #2: Hey! Get her off me! Get off of me!

Nurse: Should I call security?

Guard #2: Get her off of me!

Brandy: Don't touch me!

Guard #2: What are you, crazy?! Get off of me!

Tom: So you're sure you saw a plane ticket in Nick's hand?

Abigail: Yes, but that's - that's all I remember. I try to go further, but I - I just go blank.

Molly: Because the next thing you saw was him being murdered. So who would want to remember that?

Tom: So after Mary, or the murderer, left the room, you were the next person on the scene, Molly. Did you see a plane ticket in Nick's hand?

Molly: I checked his pulse, looked for a sign of life, but I don't recall any ticket. No.

Tom: So what about Adam? Could he have taken his plane ticket for some reason?

Molly: No. Why? Adam came to save Abigail, not cover Nick's tracks. Mary had to take the ticket. It had to be her.

Jake: Look, Tom has to ask these questions, because if he doesn't, the Assistant District Attorney will.

Molly: I know. I know. I know. I just really want this to work. Because it needs to make up for the damage that I did on the stand.

Tom: So if Molly, Abigail and Adam all left the plane ticket alone, then Molly's right. Mary had to have taken it before she left. But why?

Jake: Well, I've got another question. If Mary and Nick were going to take off together, why does Abigail only remember seeing one ticket?

Tom: Now that's a good question. Let's find out.

Lucinda: Oh, you noticed everything is exactly as you left it in your room? But if you need anything at all, just remember Matthew is you're slave. And don't hesitate to ask him for it.

Lucy: I won't.

Lucinda: Are you ever going to tell me, darling, how you managed to convince your dad that you could have a sleepover here with me, hmm?

Lucy: Actually, it was his idea.

Lucinda: Oh, really? What is he up to now?

Lucy: What makes you say that?

Lucinda: Oh, honey - oh, honey, I just know your father. And if he of his own will and volition allowed you to come and spend any time at all with me it's because he wants you out of his place, and so-why? I'm just - I'm just wondering what the reason is. Why?

Lucy: I may know.

Lucinda: You know? Well, come and tell me. Come. Tell me everything.

Lucy: When I got there, there was this girl in the suite.

Lucinda: A girl? I see. What kind of a girl?

Lucy: The kind with an overnight bag.

Lucinda: Oh, honey. Blonde hair and legs and -

Lucy: Do you know her?

Lucinda: No, darling, I just know - you know, the kind of girl that your father is drawn to.

Lucy: No, no, no. My dad said that she was a business associate. [Lucinda laughs] But she didn't seem old enough to be in any kind of business I can think of.

Lucinda: Well, dear, it's the oldest business in the world. But - oh, I'm sorry, honey. Just forgive me. I just waxing lyrical because your father's involvements just are - they're an affront to me.

Lucy: Wait, if you're suggesting my dad's getting involved with someone new, you're wrong. He loves Carly Tenney.

Lucinda: Oh, yeah? He loves her? No, darling. Let me tell you something. Your father - I can tell you because you know it-he's an inveterate philanderer, and that's that. Love? No. No, he loved your mom. Oh, yes, he did. And thank heavens, because it produced you. But we all saw how that ended. Carly Tenney - if she's alive and if she has a brain left inside that head of hers, she's got to go back to that nice Jack Snyder and forget about your dad. Forget out him. He's just a single-minded hedonist.

Lucy: I love my dad, grandmother. I always will. And I think you are totally wrong about him.

Lucinda: All right, my darling, we will agree to disagree. Have you finished your homework for today?

Lucy: I was about to start.

Lucinda: Okay. Get cracking. Get going. Be constructive. And I'm gonna go and do something constructive.

Lucy: Wait, where are you going?

Lucinda: Um - I'm going to beard the lion in his den and see if I can catch him with his pants down.

Brandy: Can I go now?

Bob: You're not going anywhere until you explain yourself, young lady.

Brandy: All right, who are you supposed to be?

Bob: I'm the Chief of Staff of this hospital.

Brandy: Oops.

Bob: Yeah. Well, why did you cause this disruption?

Brandy: Well, as I was just telling the charming officer, I really had -

Guard #2: Doctor? We have a situation. The patient inside -

Bob: Yeah, James Stenbeck. What about him?

Guard #2: He's gone.

Bob: Well, how did he disappear this time?

Guard #2: I've called the psych ward. All the patients there are present and accounted for, including Munson. And they're not missing anyone, either.

Brandy: Ah, see, told you. I'm not some loony patient in your hospital.

Bob: Don't be too sure of that. I'm may order a psychiatric evaluation of you. Why don't you seal all the exits? Maybe it's not too late to find him.

Guard #2: Attention all personnel, this is sector seven. Patient James Stenbeck has escaped -

Brandy: So who is this Stenbeck character anyway?

Bob: He's a deranged criminal with an appetite for destroying lives. And thanks to you, he's on the loose. You and your foolishness.

Brandy: I'm really, really sorry, but I don't even know -

Bob: You're gonna be a lot sorrier by the time this is over.

Brandy: Oh, come on, doctor. Haven't you ever heard of a college prank? I promise, I will never darken the doors of your hospital again. Next time I have a medical emergency, I'll go straight to Bay City.

Bob: You're not going anywhere until you talk to the police. So why don't you make yourself comfortable.

Brandy: The pol -

Bob: You're going to be here for a long time.

Craig: Hello? All right, come in. The coast is clear.

James: Expecting someone?

Craig: I don't live alone.

James: I noticed how skilled you were operating the service elevator.

Craig: I value my privacy.

James: Yes, I understand that. You know, I should've had you working for me years ago.

Craig: I don't work for anyone.

James: You do now.

Craig: Right now I work for Carly and Emily.

James: You know, I've been fed through a tube for so long, a burger from the corner Diner sounds good. But as I remember, the bill of faire here is above average.

Craig: We're not here to eat, James. I got you out of the hospital to take me to Carly. Now tell me where there are, and I can make arrangements.

James: Must be some misunderstanding about this deal of ours.

Craig: You told me you had to get to Townes in 48 hours. Half of that is already gone. It will take us ten hours at least to get to Europe.

James: Well, then time is of the essence. Better get your butt in gear.

Craig: Well, how am I going to take you where you need to be unless you tell me where you need to be?

James: You're a clever fellow - improvise. If I don't get to Townes, Emily dies, Carly dies. It's simple.

Craig: I didn't sign up for game night! James, if anything happens to Carly or Emily, you will be killed. Simple.

Lily: We are going to talk about this even if it takes us all night. Do you have any idea - any idea how important you are to us? You're a part of our family now. You belong here.

Rose: When you walked in here just now-I was thinking about the first time that I came into this house. When I was pretending to be you. And who barges in the first morning here? Your ma, Lucinda Walsh. I'm lying there, faking headaches, trying to figure out who this woman is, you know? Is she the maid? Is she my Aunt fanny? Is she my neighbor? What? You know, it was the - I didn't know. It was the worst!

Lily: I'd give the world to be a fly on the wall during that conversation.

Rose: So Lucinda breezes in from Europe with a gift for me - for you. From one of those French boutiques-very fancy with the bag and the box. It was so pretty. They looked so expensive, they could be the gift. I open the box. Beautiful. Ah, these gorgeous earrings - diamond earrings that could probably pay for my rent for a year in Jersey. And your ma said that she gave them to - to me because it reflected your opalescent skin.

Lily: That's my mother. Always buying me jewelry I'll never wear.

Rose: Cry me a river, okay. The earrings were fantastic. But the comment confused me, you know? Opalescent? No one ever said anything like that to me before. So I looked in the dictionary. "Opalescent" - reflecting an iridescent glow." It's a good one, huh? I looked in the mirror and I thought - your mirror - I'm going, "I fooled them all. Even her own mother - Lily's mother - thinks that I'm her because of the skin." But now you're the only one lighting up a room. And God forgive me - forgive me - it kills me to look at you and think of the person that I used to be.

[Doorbell rings]

Lily: Wait, just - I'll get rid of who it is.

Lily: Hi.

Susan: Hi. I'm sorry, I should have called first.

Lily: No, Susan, this is a surprise.

Susan: Well, I'm sure it is. But I was in the neighborhood, and I - I wanted to see Rose.

Lily: Rose? I didn't - you two know each other?

Susan: Oh, we met way back - at the hospital telethon. You were away.

Lily: Right. Yes, I was. When Rose - come on in - wasn't quite herself.

Susan: I - I have some information about Rose's condition.

Rose: What's up, doc?

Susan: Hello, Rose.

Rose: If you've got news for me, I want to hear it.

Margo: Well, of course, I could use some good news. I can always use good news.

Jack: Stenbeck escaped again?

Margo: That is terrific!

Jack: How the hell did he disappear with a guard at his door?

Margo: I'll meet you at the courthouse.

Jack: You keep that woman there until I get there. You got that?

Margo: Yeah, I'll be there as soon as I can. Just give me a minute to trace down the airline tickets. And I'll see you there.

Jack: I'm on my way.

Margo: Well, good news. Tom thinks that they've got a lead in the Scudder's killer. That means that Abigail may be off the hook.

Jack: Great.

Margo: What's the matter with you?

Jack: You're never going to believe this. Not in 10 million years are you going to believe this. Somebody broke Stenbeck out of the hospital. Yeah, I told you, you wouldn't believe it.

Margo: Just tell me that it wasn't Hal.

Jack: No, Hal's where he's supposed to be. This time Stenbeck had help from someone else.

Margo: Yeah, this is Detective Hughes. I need some information about some plane tickets.

James: Mmm, the sauce on this halibut is beyond description. Delicious. You wouldn't happen to have a Chateau Rothschild '79 around, would you?

Craig: Do you have a pilot's license?

James: Of course.

Craig: We can rent a plane. We can fly to wherever it is you're supposed to meet Townes.

James: That won't work, Montgomery. We would have to file a flight plan.

Craig: Don't try me, James. I held up my end of the bargain, you hold up yours.

James: Fine. You get us a jet. And we'll have a deal.

[Knock at the door]

Craig: Here, go up there.

Craig: Lucinda, what are you doing here? Is Lucy all right?

Lucinda: Lucy is just fine.

Craig: Good, then whatever it is, I don't have time for it.

Lucinda: No, I know. I heard about it. You've got a full dance card.

Craig: I'm in the middle of lunch.

Lucinda: Ah, lunch? And what are we going to have for dessert?

Craig: What are you talking about?

Lucinda: You embarrassed your daughter by parading your trick in front of her, banished her, warehoused her with me - which is fine with me - just so that you can have some incredible sexual marathon here until the wee hours of the morning.

Craig: How does it feel to be so wrong, so often?

Lucinda: I wouldn't know. But I do know there's somebody in the bedroom. And I'm not leaving until I see the little tramp's face. Ahem.

Craig: Lucinda, there is no whore in the bedroom, the bathroom or anywhere else in this suite. I am not having an assignation, if that makes you feel any better.

Lucinda: Hardly.

Craig: And you will note that the lunch is halibut for one.

Lucinda: You're not even buying them a sandwich anymore?

Craig: Lucinda, I am busy. You can leave or I will deposit you in the hallway myself.

Lucinda: That would be fun. And I'm going.

Craig: All right.

Lucinda: I just wanna ask you one thing. Why are you eating halibut?

Craig: What does that matter?

Lucinda: Because you detest halibut. How do I know you detest it? Because it happens to be one of the few things that we have in common! I mean, my skin crawls at the thought. I had to have Rosa prepare that for James all the time, because it was James' favorite meal. We used to joke. We would say - James would order halibut --

James: Lucinda, darling.

Lucinda: Oh, tell me this is some hellish hallucination.

Craig: I thought I told you to stay put!

James: You two were having so much fun reminiscing, I couldn't resist.

Lucinda: Craig, what's going on here? What are you doing here?

James: Well, I'm not Montgomery's trick, if that's what you're implying. Now, come on, Lucinda, aren't you going to give me a big hug and welcome me back to life?

Lily: Susan, can I get you a cup of tea or a sandwich or something?

Susan: Oh, no, I have to get home to Allison, but I - I did want to see Rose.

Rose: Me? Why?

Susan: I'm a colleague of Dr. John Dixon, and I know he's been treating you. That's not the only reason I want to see you. I'm Emily's mother.

Rose: Oh. I didn't know that. It explains where she gets her good looks.

Susan: How did she seem to you the last time you saw her?

Rose: She looked good. Real good.

Susan: Really? When John told me about what went on in that place, about that so-called "doctor" and those experiments, I've just been terrified.

Rose: That guy gives quacks a bad name. How's Daniel, you know? Emily used to talk about him all the time.

Susan: I'm sure she did.

Rose: She was nuts about him. That's why she - all she wanted to do, she just dreamt of coming back to him.

Susan: I tell him all the time that his mommy misses him.

Lily: Do you get to see him a lot?

Susan: As much as I can. Whenever he stays with me, I find him wandering around the house, looking for his mommy. He always expects to find her and I try to tell him that-that she loves him, but - he needs her back.

Rose: We all do.

Susan: I've been showing him a picture of her every day. And we look through all the photo albums. But then I realize that I have no idea what Emily's gonna look like when she comes back. That's one of the reasons I wanted to see you, so I would have an idea of what to expect. I'm sorry. Was that just horribly insensitive and selfish of me?

Rose: No. No, it's not you.

Susan: I just need some idea of what she's been going through, or even if she's alive.

Rose: She's alive. She's alive. You have to have faith in that.

Susan: I do. Just seeing you really helps. Just talking to you makes me think I'm going to see my little girl again.

Lily: You will. You will.

Susan: I've been imagining all these horrible things happening to her. But looking at you - if that's the extent of what happened to you, then -

Rose: You said you know what's happening to me? You have some information on my condition?

Lily: Right. So, what can you tell us?

Susan: John was kind enough to keep me posted since he started treating you so I'd be able to understand what's been happening with Emily.

Rose: I'll tell ya, he's took so much blood, he could start his own blood bank. And as far as these tests-you used every piece of equipment in the hospital.

Susan: Well, we got back the results today.

Rose: And?

Susan: And most of your levels are perfectly normal. There's no degeneration of cells, no damage to the nervous system, no heart, kidney, liver disease. In fact, you're in very good health.

Rose: You got to be kidding me.

Lily: That's terrific!

Rose: So you're telling me that this - this is all just skin-deep?

Susan: Apparently so.

Rose: Do you know what this means?

Susan: You're going to be okay. You and Carly and my daughter are all going to be okay.

Rose: Oh, I hope so. I really - I really hope so. Emily's going to be fine. Yeah, you gotta believe that! I'm telling you, I - I'd gotten to know her there, and she is one tough cookie. If anybody can get out of there, it's her. That's Emily.

Susan: She's really a fighter.

Rose: And if I know her the way that I think I know her, she's probably working on the scoop of the year right now.

Susan: Thank you very much, Rose.

Rose: No, no, no, thank you. Oh, thank you. Thank you. And give Daniel that hug right there from Emily.

Susan: I will. I'm really glad John let me give you the good news. My heart feels so much lighter. Maybe I'll even get some sleep tonight.

Lily: I'll see you to the door.

Susan: Good-bye, Rose. I hope I see you soon.

Rose: Sweet dreams.

Lily: Susan, it was really good to see you.

Susan: Take care of Rose.

Lily: I will. I won't let her out of my sight. I knew that we were in for some good news. So - do you have any ideas as to what you want to do next?

Rose: Oh, yeah. I got a few.

Tom: Yeah, I know. I know. But if you talk to her before I do, would you tell her we're at the courthouse waiting for her? Thanks.

Jake: What, no sign of Margo?

Tom: No, but you know what? Keep your fingers crossed. She might be coming over here with good news.

Abigail: Or maybe she's taking her time because she's dreading giving us bad news.

Molly: Honey, you had a major breakthrough today. And I'm not gonna let you talk like that. I'm just not.

Margo: Hey, you guys waiting for me?

Tom: We were about to send out a search party.

Holden: Hey, Margo, what do you have for us?

Margo: I did some checking. And, Abigail, your memory is right on the money.

Holden: See? What did I tell you?

Molly: Of course it was!

Tom: You're telling me you have confirmation that Nick Scudder purchased an airplane ticket?

Margo: Oh, man, that and more.

Margo: We have a record of reservations for two people on the 11:30 P.M. flight to Miami the night that Nick was murdered.

Jake: That must be why Nick moved up the deadline on that half a million dollars.

Molly: And these reservations were for Mary and Nick?

Margo: Oh, without a doubt.

Holden: You said there was more of a story?

Margo: There were two reservations, but Scudder purchased only one ticket.

Jake: Why, what happened to Mary's?

Margo: Her reservation was canceled.

Molly: This is just the break we needed!

Jake: So Mary does Nick's dirty work, hangs out in the shadows. And when it's time to ride off into the sunset, Nick dumps her.

Holden: If that isn't motive, what is?

Tom: Well, Mary already testified that, while they were putting this whole scam together, she believed that she and Scudder were going to go off together after it was over.

Molly: Yeah, but she didn't say anything in her testimony about knowing that he was gonna be leaving without her. Because she killed him.

Tom: But if we can connect Mary to this missing ticket, then we've got motive. That's if we find the ticket.

Jack: So where was it? Right here? You're trying to tell me this was all a random act? Faking a seizure in front of this particular room?

Brandy: It was a dare. I had no idea this was Stenbeck's room. And it wouldn't have made a difference if I had. I don't even know who Stenbeck is.

Jack: A wild coincidence?

Brandy: I swear!

Jack: And you said you did this as a bet as to whether or not you can get your name written up in the newspapers?

Brandy: Yeah, yeah, you've been paying attention.

Jack: Stenbeck's name is all over the newspapers, and yet, you say you have no knowledge of who he is?

Brandy: Okay, so I'm not up on my current events. But that doesn't mean I'm involved in some conspiracy!

Jack: Any idea what that is?

Bob: Well, Stenbeck must've had this all the time. He could control the readings on the monitors that he was hooked up to, so he just made them read that he was comatose.

Jack: Dr. Hughes, was he ever in a coma?

Bob: We won't know that until we find him.

Jack: Do you have any idea what you've done? A dangerous criminal was faking his illness, and you helped him get away!

Brandy: I told you, I don't even know who he is! I know like zippo about electronic thingies like that -

Guard #2: Detective Snyder? I thought you'd might be interested in this.

Jack: Yeah, well, what is this?

Guard #2: A nurse found it in the ladies' room down the hall.

Jack: This yours?

Brandy: I don't - I might own one kinda like it.

Jack: Then you don't mind if I take a look through it.

Brandy: No, no, there's no need to do that!

Jack: Well, hey, if you're not gonna give me the answers, I gotta find 'em someplace, right?

Brandy: Hey, since when is it a crime to own a tote bag?

Jack: I'll tell you what, let's continue this conversation at that station. Take her into custody.

Brandy: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute, you're going to arrest me?

Jack: I'll see you at the station. [To the Guard] Try not to blow it this time.

Lucinda: I knew you had no moral fiber, and you're being anywhere. But I don't understand how you could put your daughter at risk, my granddaughter and make any kind of alliance with this man, this monster.

James: I had forgotten how much I missed your voice, Lucinda.

Lucinda: Tell me that you did not help him escape! Tell me that you are being held here, that-for ransom, or-tell me something.

Craig: I have to do something to bring Carly back.

Lucinda: He promised you that, and you believed him? Darling, how did you get out of your lovely coma?

James: I can't stay quiet for long. You know that. And perhaps, I missed you.

Lucinda: I wish I had a gun. Why is he alive? Why?

Craig: Because he knows where Carly and Emily are. He's been calling all the shots from his hospital bed.

Lucinda: Oh. Well, this is gonna stop right now. Right now. This is at an end. And I can't do it. But I know that the police are out there. And they're looking for you. They're looking for you in the airports - and the train stations, and everywhere else. And they'll get you! And they'll put you away! They'll put the pair of you away! And the world will be a better place because you're not in it anymore.

James: Lucinda, Lucinda, Lucinda? Doesn't worldwide still have a jet?

Lucinda: Oh, come off it. If you think I have any-any intention joining any scheme with you you're criminally insane. You're insane. And I'm going to be very happy to be the one that does make that final phone call.

James: No, I think you should join our partnership, for little Rose's sake.

Lily: I popped some popcorn. Thought maybe we could pop in a DVD, watch a movie.

Rose: Can't.

Lily: You're going somewhere?

Rose: I figured something out, when Emily's mother was here. I can't keep pushing Paul away. I can't keep pushing you away. I want my life back! I want to be pressed so close to Paul that you can't even see daylight between us. I want to take Mitzi and hang out at the java underground and get our groove on. You know? I want to rule the world with Lucinda. I want to be able to look my sister in the face. It's time to fight.

Lily: How are you gonna do that?

Rose: I gotta go back there.

Lily: To the spa? No, you cannot be serious. You don't even know where it is.

Rose: I'll find it.

Lily: Even if you find it - even if you run into that crazy doctor, you cannot go by yourself, it's too dangerous.

Rose: It's no more dangerous than hanging around here, feelin' like a quitter.

Lily: You're not a quitter. You're a survivor.

Rose: I didn't even have the guts to tell Emily's mother that what happened to her could be 1,000 times worse than what's happening to me.

Lily: I cannot believe you feel guilty. You actually feel guilty about surviving that place?

Rose: You know what they say about bein' raised catholic, you feel guilty about everything. Every time I close my eyes, I see them, I see their faces, Emily and Carly. I promised them I would come back. I promised them I would do everything that I could to get back to them. And what am I doin'! I'm useless.

Lily: No you're not.

Rose: What have I done since I got back here? Nothing! The three of us went through this hell together, we should get out of it together. It's like a sisterhood. You don't turn your back on a sister.

Lily: What would you be doing to me if you left here? I can't change your mind. I see that. And obviously. Can I-is there anything that I could do to help?

Rose: Yes. There is something you can do, you can be here, for Holden, Luke and Faith.

Lily: What about Paul? What do I tell Paul?

Rose: You tell him you - you tell - you tell him - I gotta go.

Lily: But at least tell me what you're plan is.

Rose: I'm keeping a promise.

Lily: Could we please just talk about this?

Rose: It's just something I have to do. I gotta, I gotta go. All right, I gotta go.

Lily: Please, don't do this.

Rose: I have not felt this good in weeks, because I finally figured out what I have to do. I love you, Lily. I love you.

Lily: Oh, please come back! Rose?

Jake: Okay, gang, what's our - what's our next move?

Margo: I inform the D.A.'s office of the existence of new evidence. And with luck, we get a search warrant to go through Mary's belongings, and see if I can dig up Nick's ticket to Miami.

Abigail: What if Mary got rid of the ticket?

Tom: We already know that Nick made two reservations and only cancelled one. That's more than we knew before. So, if we can prove Mary had prior knowledge that she was about to be cut out of this deal, then she's got a huge motive for wanting this guy dead. Now, it's going to be a lot of work. Terrific new start though.

Margo: Yeah. So, we'll see you guys tomorrow.

Tom: Yeah, all of you get some rest.

Margo: You deserve it. Bye-bye.

Molly: Bye. Oh, I am so perfectly happy.

Abigail: Me, too.

Jake: Oh, no.

Molly: Oh, no. You know what happens when I'm perfectly happy.

Jake: Yes, you want to eat like wild pig.

[Molly oinks like a pig]

Molly: And it's your night to cook.

Jake: What? How come it always feels like it's my night to cook? Okay. I'll be cooking. Tell you what, I'll go home and I'll cook up the most expensive meal that I can. Then we'll take Abigail over to Holden's. Abigail?

Molly: Honey, you okay?

Abigail: Yeah. I just realized something. Remember what I told you about the hateful things Nick said to me, "Did you really think I'd take you with me? Did you really think I loved you?"

Molly: Yeah?

Abigail: Yeah, well, I always thought those were said to me. That he was mocking me, making fun of me.

Jake: That's when you thought you could've killed Nick.

Abigail: Right. But if Mary found out that Nick was leaving without her - maybe those words were meant for her.

Holden: There was time when things were looking a little bleak there, especially when the Assistant D.A. cornered Molly and got her to testify that she believed that Abigail murdered Nick.

Lily: Poor Molly.

Holden: But then, everything changed when Abigail remembered the airline ticket. And that's when we thought for the first time that things just might work out for us.

Lily: Yeah, I really needed some good news to brighten my day.

Holden: You seem kinda quiet. I'm goin' on and on here. What's wrong?

Lily: It's Rose. She's gone.

Holden: Gone where?

Lily: She went to find Emily and Carly. I know. It's crazy, it's absolutely insane. But she said she would not be able to live with herself unless she at least tried to find them.

Holden: You must've been freaking out.

Lily: I was freaking out. But you know Rose, you can't talk to her. She just ran out of here.

Holden: You know what? Try not to worry about Rose, 'cause I think Rose is going to be just fine.

Lily: Why?

Holden: Because Rose has already done the impossible. Atlantic City showgirl becomes VP of a Fortune 500 company, falls in love with the CFO of a major design firm, discovers the most beautiful woman in the world is her sister - I wouldn't worry about Rose. I think Rose is going to be just fine.

Lily: You know how happy I am when you're home?

Holden: Me, too.

Lily: You know how long it's been since we've been alone?

Holden: It's been awhile.

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Holden: Forever.

Lily: Right.

Holden: I think it's been forever.

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Holden: Wanna try something new?

Lily: I'm listening -

Holden: I say that we forget about Rose and Abigail, just for a little while, then we can go back to pulling our hair out, praying for miracles, stuff like that.

Lily: So, put our worries aside. What a concept. I'm sorry - well, I don't - I don't mean to break the mood or anything --

Holden: Well, then, good - don't, don't.

Lily: Did you - did you hear that?

Holden: No. It's probably just the beating of my heart.

Lily: Wait. No, I'm serious. Did you hear that?

Holden: Oh, no, it's just your imagination.

Lily: No. Did you hear that? Holden, did you see that?

Lucinda: James-James, darling-I'm afraid that you weren't able to keep up with the news all that time you were in the coma. I'm afraid not. Because Rose is home, and she's - she's safe!

James: Really?

Lucinda: Yes. You can't hurt that poor girl anymore.

James: You know, I understand that on her return, Rose looks a little worse for the wear. Not doin' to good since she's moved back to Oakdale.

Lucinda: You did that to her? You did it didn't you?

James: No, it's another man's work.

Craig: A George Townes.

James: Just an acquaintance.

Craig: Carly and Emily will be killed if he doesn't make a rendezvous with Townes in 24 hours.

James: You see, we need your help to make that meeting.

Lucinda: Okay. As I understand it, in other words, if I provide the transportation in my jet, then you will get to this man, this mad scientist person, and he is able to reverse the process of what has happened to Rose and the other girls? That's the deal.

James: This isn't worldwide. You don't dictate terms here.

Lucinda: I am in a position to get what I want here. And I do want to put you away. Nothing would make me happier than to do that.

James: Just do it! Do it then! And watch darling little Rose rot right in front of your eyes, right in the comfort of your own home.

[Pounding on door]

Jack: Craig, it's Jack! Open up! Come on, partner, I know you're in there!

Craig: Lucinda, Lucinda? They will die if you talk. Do not open your mouth.
