Holden: They've given Aaron a home, a good home, for a very long time.

Lily: I know that, but maybe he needs something else now.

Holden: No, what he needs right now is to go back to Seattle. He needs to work everything out with Caleb and Julie. And I think that's best for us. Especially with this new baby on the way.

Lily: Mm. I don't know. It just doesn't seem right -- hurting one person to protect another.

Holden: I don't want to talk about it. You know what I want to do right now?

Lily: What?

Holden: I want to give you my undivided attention.

Lily: Oh.

Holden: And I want you to tell me how you're feeling.

Lily: Didn't you just ask me that?

Holden: I think I did. But I do believe it's my right, as the expectant father, to hover.

Lily: Yeah, absolutely. So you want to know how I feel? I feel like an alien has taken over my body. I never felt this way with Luke or Faith. So --

Holden: It's the morning sickness?

Lily: Morning, noon, night. All day, every day. I was so exhausted. I thought it was the flu at first, or maybe the kids brought something home from school or --

[Holden sighs]

Holden: Where have I been?

Lily: With Abigail. Or Luke or Faith or Rose -- it's -- I'm not surprised that you didn't pay attention to me.

Holden: You know what? Know what I'm gonna do now? Right now, I'm gonna give you all my attention. And you, too! This is so incredible. I just -- can't believe that we're having another baby.

Lily: I know. Are you happy?

Holden: I'm very happy. I couldn't be happier. Correction -- one thing could make me happier.

Lily: What?

Holden: If Aaron would show up a year from now.

Lily: Oh, well --

Holden: I know that he's having a rough time. Things aren't going so well. But this is just not a good time for us. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna let him have a good night's sleep at the farm tonight. Then tomorrow, I'm gonna explain everything to him. I'm sure he'll understand. What? What is it?

Lily: I just can't help seeing it through his eyes. What child understands he's not wanted?

Emma: Aaron?

Aaron: Hey. Thought you were getting Faith a drink of water.

Emma: Oh, I did. But she was asleep by the time I went back up. What, you're trying to get rid of me?

Aaron: Sure it's not the other way around?

Emma: Ooh! Don't you know that it's genetically impossible for a grandmother to want her grandchildren to disappear?

Aaron: I hadn't heard that one.

Emma: Mm. There's probably something else you haven't heard. It took me awhile to learn it.

Aaron: What's that?

Emma: That if you expect people to guess what it is you want , you could spend the rest of your life not getting it. You're home now. We're family. Just ask. Well, I'll see you in the morning. I want to learn how to ride this thing. See you bright and early.

[Aaron thinking]

Lily: I know it is really selfish, but I don't know if I can handle having him here right now.

Aaron: Why bother her asking if you know the answer?

Nurse: Here 's your visitor.

Susan: Oh. Hal.

Hal: Susan.

Susan: Thank you, Claudia.

Nurse: If you need anything, I'm just a whistle away.

Hal: Thank you.

Susan: Good to see you. You look great.

Hal: I look like hell. And since you're obviously pulling strings with nurses to see me after hours, something's up with you. So what is it?

Susan: I saw Rose D'Angelo today, and I can't get Emily out of my mind.

Hal: You and me both.

Susan: Have they told you what that -- that madman, that so-called doctor has done to them?

Hal: They don't tell me much in here. But I saw Rose -- before.

Susan: He was using her as a lab rat. Now, obviously, he's done the same thing to Carly and Emily. Who knows what other experiments he's carrying out on them? Somebody's got to find them!

Hal: That's what I keep praying for, Susan.

Susan: Emily needs more than your prayers. She needs your help.

Dr. Michaels: Susan?

Susan: Ah, hello, Lynn.

Dr. Michaels: I get the feeling I've interrupted something. Does it have anything to do with the fact that visiting hours were over about four hours ago, and you should be resting?

Susan: This isn't a social visit.

Dr. Michaels: Yeah, I get that feeling. Are you all right, Hal?

Hal: I'm fine.

Susan: I would've gone to you first, but time is really of the essence.

Dr. Michaels: Or you hoped I'd say no.

Susan: I'm sorry, but this couldn't wait .

Dr. Michaels: What seems to be the problem?

Susan: Would you consider treating Hal on an out-patient basis?

Dr. Michaels: Hal's not ready t be released.

Susan: Then who's gonna help me? Who's gonna help me find my daughter

Margo: Oh, Brandy, Brandy, Brandy. How are you enjoying our hospitality?

Brandy: I'm not.

Margo: No? You're not?

Brandy: Hm-mmm.

Margo: I'm so sorry to hear that. Aren't they feeding you down in lockup? Now, I specifically requested that they send you the chef's special. I hear that he studied in Paris, that chef.

Brandy: Oh, yeah, thanks. But I thought maybe I'd like to keep my stomach lining, if that's all right with you.

Margo: Oh.

Brandy: It's freezing. You guys don't believe in heating your cells?

Margo: Oh, I'm sorry. Here. Why don't you just -- ah! After you tell me why you pulled that little fake seizure outside of James Steinbeck's hospital room. 'Cause I got to tell ya, that whole college prank thing -- it's really not cutting it for me.

[Brandy laughs]

Brandy: You took me out of lockup because you know you can't keep me there much longer without giving me grounds for one hell of a lawsuit! So I suggest you get me an attorney. Now!

Margo: Oh, all right. I'll call legal aid. Goodness, though. Look at the time! I wouldn't hold your breath. On second thought -- do.

[Brandy laughs]

Brandy: You had better get me out of this, Craig.

Jack: Steinbeck? Rose? Craig? Is anybody there? Can somebody talk to me? Hello!

[Rose moans]

Rose: Jack?

Jack: Come on. Answer me, somebody!

[Rose moans]

Rose: Please, let this be a nightmare. James, what have you -- James? Ah! He's gone! Nobody's flying this plane!

Jack: Rose - - Rose, can you hear me?

Rose: Hello?! Hello?!

Jack: Rose!

Rose: Jack! Jack, look, you got to do something! Nobody's flying this freaking plane!

Jack: Rose, okay. Okay, listen, we've got your plane on radar, and you're holding steady. So you've just got to -- you just got to calm down and not panic. You must be on autopilot, okay?

Rose: No, not okay! The opposite of okay!

Jack: Okay, breathe. Just -- just try to breathe and calm down. What happened to Steinbeck?

Rose: I don't know. He must've had a parachute and bailed out.

Jack: Listen to me, Rose. You can't stay on autopilot indefinitely. Sooner or later, somebody is gonna have to take the controls. Where's Craig?

Rose: Craig? Hey, Craig! Look -- wake p! Wake p! Wake up! Ooh, I've always wanted to do that! Craig! Craig!

Jack: How is Craig? Is he coming to?

Rose: I think so. Montgomery , you with me?

[Craig moans]

Craig: What -- oh, my head.

Rose: You got an ether headache, thank you James Steinbeck.

Please don't you pass out again, 'cause I'll slap you. I'll be more than happy to do that.

Craig: I don't like you that way.

Rose: Would you split?! Steinbeck -- hello! Gone! Out of the plane. Parachute. No pilot!

Craig:: What? No -- no pilot? All right. I can do this. Okay. Okay.

Rose: He's up.

Jack: Good. Craig, I need you come in for a landing. Do you understand?

Rose: He's nodding.

Jack: Great. I need you to pinpoint your location and work your way back to Oakdale. Can you do that?

Craig: Of course, I can do that . Who do you think you're talking to?

Rose: He's acting very confident, as usual, and saying that he can do it . But tell you the truth, between you and me, I'm not so sure. I'm looking at the plane on the horizon thing on the control panel. It looks a little slant to me.

Craig: Relax, Rosie. I got it covered.

Rose: My life's in your hands, huh? Too bad I left mine at home.

Craig: Autopilot disengaged. We are stable at 10,000 feet

Jack: Good. Craig, when you land, I will be waiting on the tarmac for you. I'm gonna hand you over to tower controls right now.

Craig: Don't bother. We're not landing, Jack.

Jack: What are you talking about? What are you talking about? You said you could handle this. You can't land the plane?

Craig: I won't land the plane. I'm not coming back till I find Carly!

Steinbeck is our only link to finding those women, Jack! I'm not letting him get away!

Jack: He's already done it. He's gone!

Craig: If I fly low enough, I can probably spot his parachute. I'll radio position back.

Jack: How? You gonna flash him your high beams, Craig? Game is over.

Rose: Let's face it, maverick. We're snookered.

Jack: Bring that plane down now!

Craig: I got him out of the hospital

Rose: But he didn't. All right tough noogies. Between the airsickness and the ether, I need some solid ground.

Craig: I'm not gonna land the plane.

Jack: You listen to me, Montgomery . You don't land that plane, I will have you escorted down by f-16s. You want me to bring the federal government in? That's fine! It's no problem at all. And I will see to it that you spend the next 20 - 25 years in a government facility with a very big, very lonely roommate! You roger that?!

Craig: All right , I see the light . Tell him I'm coming in.

Rose: I want to find Carly and Emily as much as you do. But what choice do we have? We got to go home. So now what?

Craig: Rosie -- I wish I knew.

Holden: I can't believe that you're still talking about letting Aaron stick around.

Lily: Why do you sound so surprised?

Holden: If somebody's kid lied to me the way he lied to you --

Lily: Well, he's not somebody's kid. He's your son.

Holden: All right maybe you're right. I mean, I don' want him to go back to Seattle, not without knowing why he left .

Lily: Right. Exactly. I feel the same way.

Holden: But I have to say -- he didn't give us any lead time on this.

Lily: Well, who plans when they're running away? I mean -- wait, I'm sorry. What teenager plans anything? He needs you. You can see it in his eyes. You can hear it in his voice. His silence.

Holden: Yeah, but we don' know how Caleb and Julie are gonna feel about this.

Lily: You talk to them. They will understand. He is as much a part of you as your other children. And if he starts picking up the fact that you don' feel that way about him, he's really gonna be in trouble.

Holden: What about you? You're already dealing with Abigail and all those problems. Got another one on the doors. Got one in the oven here. How can I ask you to take him on, as well?

Lily: Do me a favor and close your eyes. Go on, close your eyes. Think about last summer. You put your life on the line every single day in Malta to keep Luke safe. You never let go. You never have. Luke is your son because he is my son.

That is the way you've seen it.

That's the way you've treated him. And every time I look at Luke and I see how happy and healthy he is, I thank God everyday that you are a part of his life. How can I give the same commitment to Aaron?

Aaron: Damn! Stupid, useless piece of -- damn 'em. Damn all of 'em.

Luke: Aaron? If something's wrong, can I help?

Paul: All right, so five multiplied by "x" equals --

Will: Hey, mom!

Barbara: Hello! Isn't it kind of late for you to be up?

Will: The homework that would not die.

Barbara: oh.

Paul: What brings you by so late ?

Barbara: Well, I figured maybe you guys were out of some staples and some stuff, so --

Paul: Hey, hey, hey. Part it, pal. I was gonna do the shopping tomorrow.

Barbara: No need to do that. It's my pleasure. You two just go back to doing what you were doing.

Paul: Hey, back to work.

Will: So "x" equals -- 18.

Paul: Piece of cake. And that, my friend, is basic algebra .

Will: Today, I am a man!

Paul: Well, you're a lot smarter than you look. I can tell you that much.

Will: And, you know, that's saying a lot, since I have all the looks and the brains in the family.

[Paul laughs]

Paul: We go another jokester, huh?

Barbara: Okay, okay, okay, okay. Okay, I think that's quite enough. You head on upstairs, all right get your PJs on. Get your teeth brushed. And I will be up here in a minute to say good night , okay?

Will: Will you be here in the morning to wish me luck?

Barbara: Well, I guess that's -- kind of up to your brother.

Will: Please, Paul?

Paul: Will, I -- if you want your mother here tomorrow, she'll be here.

Will: Yes!

Susan: Everything feels so stalled. And if you -- if Hal were out of here, supervising, even on a part time basis, then I could have a little hope again.

Dr. Michaels: I'm not sure Hal is the man for that job right now. I mean, he's making a very quick recovery. But I can't recommend release. It's too soon.

Hal: Even if the commissioner were to take me back on the force -- and that is a very big "if" -- I've been out of the loop for weeks, Susan.

Susan: But you're the only one Emily called. The only one since she disappeared. Didn't she tell you anything? Didn't she give you a clue about where she was being held?

Hal: She wasn't able. I mean, she called me, but then he -- got to me.

Dr. Michaels: A lot has been done to Hal that needs to be undone. It's a process. It takes time.

Susan: I know. And I'm sorry. I'm very sorry that this has happened to you. But wouldn't it help your recovery if you knew you were helping Emily? And Daniel?

Hal: Look at me, Susan. Really look at me. What in the world makes you think that I am the man

to go and bring Emily home?

Susan: You are because you love her. I know how much you love her.

Hal: Doctor, I do believe that we have made a breakthrough. So you are finally convinced that I am crazy about your daughter?

Susan: I always knew that. I also knew that you've been in and out of love with Barbara Ryan since

the ice age. And I figured, that if I didn't get in the way, Emily would do something to ruin it.

Hal: You ought to have a little bit more faith in her, Susan.

Susan: Know what I have faith in? That she's out there somewhere, alive, waiting for you to find her.

Hal: I don't know, Susan. I don' know if I'm ready.

Susan: Are you ready to see your kids?

Go home and be surrounded by the people who love you. But come on -- your kids miss you .

Dr. Michaels: Now, can we keep the guilt to a minimum, please, Susan? Hal, I -- of course, I can't force you to stay. But you need to think long and hard about whether you would feel comfortable being home.

Hal: I don' have to think about it long and hard. I'll tell you right now, it scares me to death. But we've all got to go sometime. And if I continue with my therapy --

Dr. Michaels: Well, I do need to say one thing before you make a decision.

Hal: What is it?

Dr. Michaels: James Steinbeck has escaped from the hospital.

Susan: But he was in a coma.

Dr. Michaels: I can only report to you what I know so far. But Hal, you've just now reached the point where you can say that man's name out loud. Do you really want to be out in a world where Steinbeck is a clear and present danger?

Hal: Am I under any legal obligation to stay here?

Dr. Michaels: No, I told you -- I can't force you to stay. No. But I --

Hal: Then let's get the ball rolling on getting me out of here.

Dr. Michaels: Are you sure this is what you want?

Hal: If James Steinbeck is on the loose, I belong at home, with my family.

Aaron: What are you doing here?

Luke: I waited until grandma went to bed. Then I snuck out of the house. I had to see it again.

Aaron: The bike? You know anything about motorcycles?

Luke: I know I like 'em.

Aaron: Ever ridden one?

Luke: No. But I can ride any horse in the stables almost.

Aaron: Nice trick. Holden teach you that?

Luke: He knows everything there is to know about horses.

Aaron: And I know everything there is to know about motorcycles. Go ahead. Take a load off. Want to see what it feels like being in the driver's seat?

Luke: Sure! If it's okay.

Aaron: Sure. Hundred per cent safe.

Luke: Wow! He is so cool!

[Making motorcycle noises] how do you make it go?

Aaron: This is a five-speed. You control it with your foot. Right down here.

Luke: You rode all the way from Seattle?

Aaron: Believe it or not, it takes a decent machine to make a trip like that.

Luke: Whoa, it must've taken a long time to learn everything.

Aaron: If a dropout like me can make sense of it, a smart kid like you shouldn't have a problem.

Luke: You'd teach me?

Aaron: Whoa, slow down, kid. I never said nothing like that. Besides, by the time your legs get long enough to reach the pedals, I'll be long gone.

Luke: I wish you'd stay.

Aaron: Why do you want a bum hanging around you, kid?

Luke: You're not a bum. You're my brother. I've always wanted a brother.

Holden: Not many wives in your position would just open their arms and say, "come on in. Room for one more."

Lily: I am not suffering from raging hormones, so don't accuse me of that.

Holden: It is one thing to bring a kid into your home when you're expecting. But this particular kid -- when we found out that he was on the way, it nearly sent us down the tubes.

Lily: But we're stronger for it now. Aren't we?

Holden: Maybe we are. But I just don't know that I'm up for the challenge. I think what we need is a nice, peaceful, stable environment for the next few months, if not year.

Lily: I'm all for that. Definitely.

Holden: And with this baby on the way, I want wall-screeching noise from a newborn, not a teenager.

Lily: Right .

Holden: And how the heck did he get to be so old, anyway?

[Lily laughs]

Lily: I have an idea. Why doesn't he stay at the farm? He could split his time between there and here.

Holden: I never thought of that . That is a good idea.

Lily: Yeah.

Holden: I'm sure Mama would love it.

Lily: Yes.

Holden: Aaron could stick around, without getting lost in the shuffle.

Lily: Yep. But wait -- before you do anything, think about how he would feel about it.

Holden: Well, I think he would love it. And I'm sure mama would love it, also. We'd just have to make sure that he knew that he would be welcome to come over here at anytime.

Lily: Absolutely.

Holden: I just have to ask you one more time -- you're sure that you don't mind?

Lily: I would mind if you didn't ask him to stay. And so would you. You know what? Why don't you keep these clean clothes and go over the farm and talk to your mother first, see how she feels about it?

Holden: Great idea.

Lily: Okay? And then you can tell him in person the good news.

Holden: You know what? I don't know who's luckier -- me, for having you as a wife, or this little baby, who's getting you for a mom.

Lily: Aw. Thanks. Mm. thank you.

Margo: Gal Air called.

Brandy: Is that a good thing?

Margo: Hey can't get a lawyer here until tomorrow morning, so you'll be spending the night in jail.

Brandy: Ah!

Margo: You'll be arraigned in the morning.

Brandy: You've got to be kidding me!

Margo: Or you could call your parents. You could possibly have them hire a private attorney for you.

Brandy: That's not likely.

Margo: Might be a very good idea, since this is a very dangerous thing that you've done, and you are in a lot of hot water with this. But you've been here before.

Brandy: Hey, look, I know something very bad happened tonight , and I'm sorry. But I swear to you -- I didn't know anything about any Steinbeck person.

Margo: Mm-hmm.

Jack: Wait here.

Rose: Can I get a cup of tea or something? Because my stomach -- I think I left it in the friendly skies.

Margo: Sure , See. I'll get you some. Come.

Craig: What, no hello for your brother?

Brandy?

Brandy: Don't you even talk to me.

Craig: What's she doing here , Jack?

Jack: She's getting booked!

Craig: On what charges?

Jack: What's the matter? Don't you recognize your accomplice when you see her?

Brandy: I've been telling them over and over again that they're wrong. I don' know any Steinbeck!

Jack: And you can tell the D.A. all about it tomorrow morning.

Craig: She's telling the truth, Jack. She only caused the commotion because I asked her . She didn't know what I was doing. Nobody did.

Jack: Because you took the law into your own hands, Craig. Because you think you're smarter than everybody else -- smarter than Steinbeck, smarter than the cops, smarter than 90% of the world.

Craig: 95%, but who's counting?

Jack: But you're not, you got used, Craig, the same way Barbara did, same way Hal did. And because of you, we lost Steinbeck, and we may never find Carly. Are you happy now? You had to be the hero. You had to interfere. And thanks to you, we lost Steinbeck. We don't know where he's going, we don't know what he's gonna do with those women, and we are running out of time!

Craig: Don' try to take your bruised ego out on me.

Jack: My what?

Brandy: Hi, hi, hi, hi. Does this mean I can go now?

Jack: You -- you better stay out of trouble. For God's sakes, stay away from him!

Brandy: My pleasure. After you pay me what you owe me. And by the way, the price for my little performance at the hospital -- it just doubled.

Craig: I'll take care of it. It's all right.

Brandy: I'll hold you to it. And -- thanks for getting me sprung.

Craig: Oh.

Brandy: This is so not how I envisioned spending my college years.

Craig: Well, good of you to free our little academic. She doesn't' know how lucky she is.

Jack: You're the lucky one, you moron! You're lucky you got a girl at home who depends on you, and you're lucky that I believe your concern for Carly, though pathetically misguided, is real. Otherwise, I'd be reading you your rights.

Craig: For what?

Jack: Well, aiding and abetting the escape of a felon, for starters.

Craig: Hey, if that's what it takes to bring those women home, Jack --

Jack: You didn't bring 'em home, Craig!

Craig: Well, somebody had to do something.

Jack: That's my job!

Craig: If you're gonna toss me to jail for doing your job, go ahead. I'd do it right again.

Barbara: So you dream of quadratics and coefficients and solving "x.

Will: That sounds more like a nightmare.

Paul: March! I'll see you bright and early.

Barbara: Over a monster-stack of pancakes.

Will: How can I sleep drooling for breakfast?

Paul: Find a way. Upstairs.

Will: 'Night .

Paul: 'Night, pal.

Barbara: 'Night, sweetie.

Paul: His bus leaves at 8 15.

Barbara: I know that.

Paul: So how do you plan to make him breakfast before school?

Barbara: I thought that I might spend the night here.

Paul: No.

Barbara: It's late, Paul --

Paul: Mom, no.

Barbara: -- And he expects me to be here. Paul, please.

Paul: Mom, I can't allow you insinuate yourself in Will's life again. Not until I know I can trust you.

Barbara: Please, Paul. I need to be here.

Paul: What do you mean, you need to be here?

Barbara: Your father's escaped.

Paul: The man's unconscious.

Barbara: No. Somehow he was able to work the hospital monitors. He's not in a coma.

Paul: So what now?

Barbara: I don' know. And I know this is my fault. I'm to blame, and I'm sorry for that, but I can't go back to Fairwinds. I can't be alone. Paul, please.

Paul: You can stay here. You'll stay in Jen's room.

[Knock on door]

Paul: Hal.

Hal: Hello. May we come in?

Paul: Yeah. Get in here, of course. Susan -- hey, how are you?

Susan: Good.

Barbara: What are you doing here?

Hal: I live here -- at least, I used to.

Will: I thought I heard -- dad!

Hal: Hey, Will!

Will: Dad -- oh, you're home! You're finally home! I missed you so much.

Aaron: All right, kid. Off the bike and to bed. Grandma knows when things and people aren't where they should be.

Luke: Dad says she's got ears that can hear the grass grow. That's how come she always knows when to harvest things

Aaron: I'd buy that. That was a pretty cool thing you said earlier.

Luke: About grandma?

Aaron: About wanting me for a brother. But you're not exactly the only child.

Luke: Faith and Abigail are okay and everything, but they're my sisters. And girls don't like to do cool

things like guys do.

Aaron: Maybe you don't have to worry about getting that brother you always wanted.

Luke: What do you mean?

Aaron: I mean -- your parents are going to - they're going to give you everything you need. You want a horse? Press. You have a horse. You want your dad? Bam -- there he is. No stress, no fuss. Must be nice.

Luke: Dad's the best.

Aaron: You keep thinking that, kid.

Luke: That's what you want, right? To hang out with him whenever you want?

That's why you rode his bike all the way from Seattle.

Holden: Hey, you.

Luke: H-oh.

Holden: Your grandmother said I might find you down here. What's going on?

Luke: Aaron let me sit on his bike.

Holden: Oh, he did, did he?

Aaron: It's not like I was gonna let him drive in the cornfield or something. It wasn't even turned on.

Holden: Nobody's accusing you of anything, Aaron. But it is past somebody's bedtime.

Luke: He means me.

Holden: You need to get to bed, or you're gonna fall asleep at school tomorrow.

Luke: Aaron's bike is the coolest thing ever! I was thinking, maybe I could teach him how to ride a horse, and he could teach me how to ride a motorcycle.

Holden: We'll talk about that later.

Luke: When?

Holden: When you're about 30. Now, get to bed.

Luke: 'Night, dad.

Holden: I'll be up to tuck you in in a little bit, okay?

Luke: 'Night, Aaron.

Aaron: 'Night, kid.

Luke: Aaron's gonna stay with us, right, dad?

Holden: As a matter of fact, that's what I'm here to talk to him about.

Hal: Look! Will you look at -- well, the nerve of this kid!

Will: What did I do?

Hal: Well, you went and you got taller when I was away, that's what you did.

Will: You think?

Hal: Big time, I know.

Will: I wanted to go visit you at the hospital, but they wouldn't let me.

Hal: You know what? That's probably a good thing, too, because you wouldn't want to see me like that -- you know, all mopey and tired. Anyway, you knew I was coming home, didn't you?

Will: You're better?

Hal: Well -- you know what, Will? I still kind of feel like a wet sock. But I think I'm gonna be back to my old self pretty soon. But you know what? I don't think I really knew that until I walked through that door, and I saw this place, and I saw you.

Barbara: So what brings you by, Susan?

Hal: She's the one who told me that I still have a job to do -- that people still need me.

Will: Does that mean you're here to stay?

Hal: Yes, I'm here to stay.

Will: This is great!

Hal: I'm even gonna make us breakfast.

Barbara: Oh, you don't have to do that. I'm staying here, too. You can sleep in and I'll make Will breakfast.

Will: Paul, isn't this cool? They'll both be here in the morning.

Barbara: Looks that way.

Will: This is amazing.

Paul: You know, pal, what's gonna be amazing is if you manage to pass this test tomorrow on a couple hours' sleep. Now, get upstairs.

Will: See what I have to put up with?

Paul: Mm-hmm.

Will: 'Night, mom.

Barbara: Good night, sweetie. Sweet dreams.

Will: 'Night.

Barbara: Good night.

Paul: 'Night, pal.

Hal: I'll see you in the morning -- tall guy.

Paul: I can't believe it -- you're back.

Hal: Yeah. If you guys wouldn't mind, I really don't want this getting out. This homecoming's not up for publication yet. I just want to spend time here resting, getting used to being home.

Barbara: Our lips are sealed.

Hal: Thank you for that.

Susan: Have you heard? James Steinbeck escaped.

Paul: Yeah, mother just told me. And that's why she's here. I figured there's safety in numbers. And since you're adding to our numbers, I thought I'd head down to the Police station and see if they got any new information for us.

Hal: Well, you'll let me know if you hear anything.

Paul: You can count on it. And Hal -- damn glad to have you back, man.

Hal: Damn good to be here.

Susan: Well, I should be going, too. I've been gone for hours. Who knows what Alison is getting up to?

Barbara: Good to see you, Susan.

Susan: You, too. Hal, I --

Hal: Susan -- thank you for coming to see me.

Susan: I don't want your gratitude. I want you to bring Emily home -- where she belongs.

Jack: I'm sick of you getting in my way, Montgomery.

Craig: As sick as I am of you letting that badge keep anybody from finding Carly?

Jack: If you found a new way of finding people while you're passed out on the floor of an airplane on autopilot, I'd love to hear it.

Rose: Jack, please. Craig isn't the only one responsible here. I am, too, so let me hear this part of the lecture. It's my turn. Come on.

Jack: No, it's not the same, Rose. For one thing, you didn't help spring a known felon from Police custody. For another, you're family. He's one notch below vermin.

Rose: Oh. All right, listen, I'm gonna say a few things right now, and please don't hold it against me, but I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna do it.

Jack: Do what?

Rose: I'm gonna stand up for Craig.

Jack: Say that again in my good ear?

Rose: Please, don't make me feel worse, and I reserve the right to regret saying this, but Craig did what he did because -- for the same reason I did what I did. We thought we could hold Steinbeck's feet over the fire, and he could lead us to where he's hiding Carly and Emily.

Craig: Thank you, Rosie.

Rose: And we blew it.

Jack: Yeah, and you sent this case free-falling. We could've had him, Craig!

Craig: Oh, please, I was there! I could've had him if you'd let me hunt him down!

Jack: You could have got yourself killed, do you know that?

Margo: All right , Craig, just -- just shut up, okay?

Thompson? Could you take Ms. D'Angelo to Holden Snyder's place? She'll give you directions on the way.

Cop #1: No problem.

Rose: Thank you, Margo. Look. Jack, for what it is worth, I'm sorry. I'm deeply sorry, but I'm most sorry for not -- for coming back empty-handed.

Jack: Go home, Rose. We'll talk about this later.

Craig: So what about me, Jack? Do I get escorted to my favorite cell, or is it straight to the rock?

Jack: Go home, Craig.

Craig: That's funny. You said --

Jack: I said go home! And if you come near this investigation again --

Craig: And what am I supposed to do, Jack?

The woman I love is being held against her will, and you are obviously powerless to do anything.

Margo: Detective Hughes --

Jack: Spend some time with your daughter. Give Emily Stewart a newspaper to come home to. I really don't care what you do.

Just stay the hell away from here.

Margo: Jack, it's for you.

Jack: Who is it?

Margo: Steinbeck.

Luke: So -- see you around?

Aaron: See you around.

Holden: Looks like you won somebody over.

Aaron: Yeah, what's he know? He's just a kid. It's all about the bike anyway.

Holden: Nah, it's more than that.

Aaron: You know him better than I do.

Holden: You 're a part of this family. He's picking up on that . You're one of us.

Aaron: What you got there ?

Holden: Oh, these are the clothes Artily washed for you.

Aaron: Good. I'll need 'em.

Holden: I spoke to your grandmother. And I think that we've come up with a solution to your problem.

Aaron: My problem? I don't have a problem. And now, neither do you.

Holden: How do you mean?

Aaron: I'm going back to Seattle tonight.

[Knocking a the door]

Lily: Rose? It's so good to see you. I was so worried about you.

Rose: I'm fine! I'm fine! You're choking me!

Lily: Fine? I'm not supposed to notice the squad car that dropped you off? Remember the last time you left here, I thought I was never gonna see you again? Now get in here and start answering questions.

Rose: You're thinking that squad car is my drive home from the biggest failure of my life. Oh, I'm sorry, no, my biggest failure in my life as a senior.

Lily: What are you talking about

Rose: My plan to find Carly and Emily -- right down the drain. And then I get an escort home from the Police department.

Lily: What happened?

Rose: I don't want to talk about it. Could we do this later, please? I feel like I'm gonna fall down in my crow's feet.

Lily: I know how you feel. It's been quite a night here too. Holden's son, Aaron, showed up with a chip on his shoulder the size of Montana.

Rose: Go back a second?

Lily: Holden has a son named Aaron.

Rose: Since when?

Lily: Since he was born. He lives with his mother and Caleb.

Rose: What , you're talking about Caleb, as in Holden's brother, Caleb?

Lily: Right.

Rose: Let me get this straight. Holden's brother is raising Holden's son that I never even knew existed?

Lily: I thought I told you that.

Rose: I'd remember that. I remember everything about you. I thought I knew everything. But , no, Holden's got a son who's an angry young man. A son -- unbelievable. You guys -- you to, I'll you, you breed like I -- you don't know what when Luke and Faith get older, I'm gonna talk to them -- aunt Rose.

Talk about abstinence, protection. What we don't need is another little Snyder running around this house, right?

Lily: Actually, Rose --

Rose: Can you hold that though 'cause I don't feel so good. My tummy's a little upset .

Lily: You're not the only one.

Rose: Then why are you munching down all those cookies?

Lily: I am?

Rose: What's going on with you, tiger Lily? And may I say, your skin is looking a little less than opalescent.

Lily: Thank you.

Rose: All I'm saying -- what?

Lily: There's been something that I've been wanting to tell you, but with everything going on --

Rose: Say it!

Lily: There is going be another little Snyder running around this place.

Rose: Get out of here. You're not --

Lily: I am -- pregnant .

Rose: Well, this is incredible ! Oh, really? You're gonna have a baby! Oh, I'm gonna be an aunt Rose again. This time from scratch. Oh, Lily --

Lily: You're really happy?

Rose: This is the best news ever.

Barbara: Well, you know what -- this homecoming needs? I know exactly what it needs. I picked up some turkey and some ham and some Swiss. All I need --

Hal: I'm really not hungry, Barbara. I just had dinner a little while ago.

Barbara: Well, it's been quite a day. I think I'll turn in.

Hal: Good idea.

Barbara: I'm gonna sleep in Jennifer's room. I'll check the master bedroom. Someone needs to let Paul know that this bed and breakfast doesn't come with maid service.

Hal: Barbara?

Barbara: Is there something you want, Hal?

Hal: Yeah. I want to talk to you --- about us.

Margo: Detective Hughes, I want to trace this call.

Jack: What do you want, Steinbeck?

James I assume that you're still interested in Carly's return?

Jack: You know I am.

James: I can arrange that.

Craig: What's he saying?

Jack: No deals, Steinbeck. No planes, no money, no special favors.

James: Snyder, here are my terms.

Jack: The women get back to Oakdale alive.

James: And you will call off the state trooper and the FBI.

Jack: If that's the deal.

James: That's the deal.

Jack: What do you want, Steinbeck?

James: What I want is a fair exchange. Something you have access to for something I have access to.

Jack: Speak English. You give me Carly and Emily, I give you what?

James: Barbara.
