Luke: How come we don't have the good pancakes anymore?

Aaron: Hey.

Holden: Hey.

Aaron: How're Abigail and her mom?

Holden: Still in shock. But that's pretty much to be expected when people lose someone they love.

Aaron: Are you just getting in?

Holden: I went over to the apartment to try and convince Abigail and Molly to get some sleep. Listen, I was really proud of you last night.

Aaron: What for?

Holden: Going to the hospital to put in time with Abigail.

Aaron: I didn't do much -- listened. She didn't say much, so -- I just kinda sat around.

Holden: She knew you were there for her -- that was enough. Listen, I know I need to speak to Caleb about you staying here in Oakdale. Let me just check in with Lily, and then I'll head out to the farm.

Aaron: He isn't there.

Holden: What do you mean? What happened?

Aaron: He came by the hospital last night to say that I had to leave with him.

Holden: You didn't argue with him, did you?

Aaron: I didn't have to.

Holden: What do you mean?

Aaron: He said he changed his mind. He said I could stay.

Holden: You're kidding me? He said you could stay? Where's Caleb now?

Aaron: He's on his way back to Seattle. That's why I slept here, so I could tell you in person.

Lily: Did I hear correctly? Caleb said you could stay?

Aaron: Yeah. If that's okay with you.

Lily: Okay? I think it's terrific.

Abigail: Did you sleep?

Molly: On and off. I found that I kept forcing myself awake because I was afraid, if I fell asleep, it would be too hard to wake up and realize that it wasn't just a dream. But that's exactly what happened, honey. I woke up, and I had to relive that moment all over again when John told me that Jake had died.

Abigail: I keep thinking of all the ways that I'm gonna miss him.

Molly: It's a long list.

Abigail: Remember when I'd come home in a bad mood? And Jake would know immediately that I was down, and he'd come in and he'd point his finger at me. He'd say, "on the count of three, you're gonna give me the biggest smile, whether you want to or not. One -- two -- " and no matter how hard I tried, I'd always wound up smiling on three.

Molly: He made so many people smile, honey. Jake was so comfortable with himself that he made other people comfortable, too.

Abigail: What time is Donna bringing the twins?

Molly: Soon. It seems like so long since Bridget and Michele have been here. But I know it was the right thing for Donna to take -- take them. But it's time for my babies to come home.

Abigail: What are we going to say to them about Jake?

Molly: Well, I'm gonna tell them that their dad -- that their dad --

[Molly sobbing] I don't know. I don't know. I don't know what I'm gonna say. How do I make sense of it to two little girls when I can't make sense of it myself?

[Doorbell rings] It's probably them. I don't want them to see me like this.

Abigail: I'll take them downstairs if you want more time.

Molly: I'm fine. Well, I mean, maybe I will be after -- after I see them.

[Doorbell rings]

Adam: Hi. I brought some food.

Abigail: Thanks.

Adam: Listen, are you guys okay with me being here? I mean, if it's too early, I can --

Abigail: I'm glad you came. Thank you.

Adam: Listen, if there's anything that you need or anything that you want --

Abigail: Let's just take this in the kitchen, okay?

Adam: Okay.

[Phone rings]

Molly: Hello?

Carly: Hi. It's Carly. How are you feeling?

Molly: I've had better mornings.

Carly: Yeah, I know. Molly, today is gonna hurt real bad, probably in ways you never even expected. But you're gonna get through it, honey, one minute at a time.

Molly: When I woke up this morning -- I looked over at Jake's side of the bed, and for a few seconds, I couldn't remember why he hadn't slept there last night. And then it hit me all over again that he's gone.

Carly: From this earth only, Mol. In spirit, he will always be with you.

Molly: I know. But I want him here, okay? I want him right here where I can put my arms around him.

Carly: I know. You put your arms around Bridget and Michele, okay? Jake is living in them. You hold onto those kids, Molly. They are going to need you now. And you're gonna need them.

Craig: Hi. Hey, hombre, is that a new bear?

Parker: Yes.

Craig: Did aunt Rosanna get that for you?

Parker: Yes.

Craig: That was very nice of her. Thank you for coming.

Rosanna: Sure. You sounded a little intense. What's going on?

Craig: Parker do you wanna introduce him to your other friends over in the toy box through there? Huh? And if you get hungry, I got those cookies we talked about. Huh?

Rosanna: You seem to enjoy children a lot.

Craig: Well, that one in particular. Are you two bonding?

Rosanna: Oh, yes. Well, we're getting there. I pointed out that my name rhymes with banana, and he liked that a lot.

Craig: Encouraging.

Rosanna: I thought so.

Craig: Listen, I need a favor. You remember what happened last night?

Rosanna: What part?

Craig: The part between us?

Rosanna: The kissing part?

Craig: Yeah, well, Lucy was in her room. I'm not sure what she saw or heard, but I'm pretty sure she heard Jack's little tirade last night. Are you following me so far?

Rosanna: So far, you're not saying anything.

Craig: Well, I don't want her to be confused about what happened between us. I thought maybe you could talk to her.

Rosanna: Me? Isn't that daddy's job?

Craig: Well, female to female. I thought it might help. You know, the subject of sex is still a little awkward in the father/daughter dynamic here.

Rosanna: Oh, sex? Did we have sex? I must've missed something.

Craig: I think you know why it might be difficult to discuss.

Rosanna: There's nothing to discuss. We shared a kiss, that was it.

Craig: Then that's all you have to tell her.

Rosanna: I'm sorry. Is there some other reason you're asking me to do this?

Craig: Lucy knows I love Carly. I'm just afraid it might confuse her.

Rosanna: Oh, might confuse Lucy? Or you?

Rose: You decent?

Carly: That depends on what you mean by decent.

Rose: I think you look swell. And you're gonna look even better after today.

Carly: Oh, really? You're sure about this, huh?

Rose: Yes, I am. We got a specialist coming in. He's gonna look at us and say, "I know what's wrong with you girls. I'm gonna write a prescription." By lunchtime, we're gonna be entering the Miss Teen USA pageant.

[Carly laughs]

Carly: That would be pretty great, wouldn't it?

Rose: Yeah. Gotta think positive. The glass is half full, you know? And here, I even brought you a new outfit -- when you leave the hospital.

Carly: Well, I'm not gonna change into just yet, if you don't mind. But you know what? You know what I'm gonna do if we do get suddenly, miraculously cured?

Rose: What?

Carly: I'm gonna go racing over to John's, and I'm gonna get Parker.

John: Hey, Jack, can I talk to you for a minute?

Jack: Well, yeah. That specialist from Chicago get here yet?

John: Yeah, he got here. Listen, I want to talk to you about Carly. I think that she should be told, before she's examined, that Rosanna has custody of Parker.

Jack: What good would that do, John?

John: Because I think the longer it goes on that she doesn't know, the harder it's gonna be when she finds out.

Jack: Look, for Carly, today is about seeing the specialist and, hopefully, getting some answers about how she can recover. I don't know about you, John, but I think that's enough.

John: Do you realize that there are over 100 different ways that she could find out about Parker before you tell her? Is that what you want? She could overhear a conversation here in the hospital. You know how everybody jabbers, yak, yak, yak, yak? And then find out about Parker --

Dr. Ferguson: Dr. Dixon?

John: Dr. Ferguson. How are you? It's nice to see you.

Jack: Detective Jack Snyder. So, do you think you can help them?

Dr. Ferguson: It's a bit premature to ask that. Would you solve a crime without knowing all the evidence?

Jack: On a good day, yeah.

John: Dr. Ferguson, come. They're right in here. Carly Tenney, Rose D'Angelo, this is Dr. Ferguson.

Rose: Hello. Nice to meet you.

Carly: Hi.

Dr Ferguson: Interesting.

Rose: You feeling lucky today, doc? 'Cause we sure are.

Dr. Ferguson: Incredible.

Carly: I'm glad you approve.

Dr. Ferguson: I left some equipment back at the Nurses' station. Could you see if someone could bring it for me, please?

John: I'll take care of it. Sure.

Jack: You'd be okay if I stepped out for awhile?

Carly: Yeah. Yeah, I guess so.

Dr. Ferguson: Let me float a theory. The spa in which you were held prisoner was always extremely warm?

Rose: Oh, it was like a summer in Hoboken.

Dr. Ferguson: And the lotions and the drinks they gave you, they were warm, too?

Rose: Yes. How did you know?

Dr. Ferguson: Heat would facilitate a chemical reaction on the surface of the skin.

Rose: Excellent.

Carly: Okay. Well, how do we fix that?

Nurse: Dr. Dixon asked me to bring this to you.

Dr. Ferguson: Thanks very much.

Rose: Oh, you know, that looks like this thing my Aunt Sophia used to use to do her needlepoint. Blind as a bat. Couldn't see a thing, but look --

Dr. Ferguson: This is a very useful tool, but it's not a crystal ball. Try not to get your hopes up.

Jack: Telling Carly that Rosanna has custody of Parker is the worst thing we can do, John. I'm not gonna betray her like that. And I don't want you to either.

John: Carly has been through hell, Jack, you know that. And she hasn't fallen apart yet. Don't you think it's time you stopped protecting her so much and started to trust her?

Rosanna: So what is it you want me to say? Assuming I speak to Lucy, I'm not particularly clear on what you want me to tell her.

Craig: That I was upset about Carly and that -- you misread the signs.

Rosanna: The message being I took things in a direction you didn't want to go?

Craig: I suppose, yes. But finesse it.

Lucy: Sorry, I didn't know you had company.

Craig: No, no, no. Lucy, wait. It's -- it's okay.

Lucy: You're sure?

Craig: Yeah, come on in. Come on in.

Lucy: Hi.

Rosanna: Hi.

Lucy: Is Parker here, too?

Rosanna: No, he's playing in the other room.

Lucy: Well, I'll go say hi.

Rosanna: No, no -- I have something I'd like to say to you.

Lucy: What?

Rosanna: I don't know about you, but I felt pretty uncomfortable last night. And instead of -- I don't know -- ignoring it, I thought perhaps we could clear the air.

Abigail: I think there's gonna be enough food in the kitchen to fill up by the end of the day.

Bob: Listen, if too many people show up at the same time and it gets to be too much, just put Kim in charge of traffic.

Kim: I've canceled all my appointments. And I don't have to pick Will up until this afternoon. So I'm at your service.

Abigail: Thanks. I'm not really sure how all this works.

Bob: Well, you're not in this alone, Abigail. If you have any questions, just ask one of us.

Adam: Or you could go to me.

Abigail: I'm so glad you're here.

Kim: Oh, bless.

[Doorbell rings]

Adam: I'll get that.

Donna: Hi, Adam.

Adam: Ms. Love, how are you? Marley.

Donna: Abigail -- I'm so sorry.

Abigail: Me, too. Thanks for coming.

Marley: He was such a wonderful man.

Molly: Hi. Where are my babies?

Donna: I didn't bring them. They're home.

Donna: The girls are fine. I just couldn't imagine that you would be able to deal with them today.

Molly: I told you I wanted them here.

Donna: I know. But, Molly, they're so bright and aware, and they would know something was wrong. And then you would have to spend every single minute today trying --

Molly: But wasn't that my decision to make? I really wish you would have asked me.

Donna: I'm sorry. I'm just trying to help. I just -- I just didn't want you to have to deal with anything more.

Abigail: We know that you were trying to help, Donna.

Molly: Of course, we do. I'm sorry for overreacting, after everything you've done for us. I mean, Jake and I were truly grateful that you took care of Bridget and Michele. I guess I can wait a little while longer before my babies come home.

Marley: Have you made arrangements for the funeral yet?

Molly: I don't even know where to begin. I mean, Jake and I weren't really regular churchgoers. And he had a real aversion to funerals. But I guess everybody really doesn't --

[Doorbell rings] Excuse me. Hi, Cass. It's good to see you.

Cass: I'm so sorry about this, Molly. You know how close Jake and I were.

Molly: I heard all the stories. I knew you guys had a lot of fun.

Cass: Oh, that we did. If there's anything I can ever do for you, legally or otherwise, please let me know, okay?

Molly: Of course. Although -- we really don't know what we're gonna do about a funeral.

Cass: Well, actually, you're not going to do anything.

Molly: What do you mean?

Cass: I drafted and filed Jake's will. And he left very specific instructions about how he -- how he wanted to leave this world. I brought it along if you want to take a look at it.

Molly: I don't think I'm ready for that yet. Cass, if you want to read it out loud, maybe --

Cass: That might not be a bad idea. That way, everyone can hear it, and no one can second guess Jake's wishes.

Molly: You can do it right now.

Cass: Whatever you want. I'm so sorry. Marley, I'm sorry. Hi, everyone. I know that this is a terrible moment for all of us. Molly thought maybe some words from Jake himself might help us feel a little better. So here it goes. "I, Jake McKinnon, being more or less of sound mind, have specific wishes in the event of my death, which is bound to happen someday, right? When it does, don't put me in a box in the dirt. Don't make some preacher who never met me say nice things about me in church. Do cremate my remains and scatter the ashes to the four winds, from the top of the City Times building. Do throw one heck of a party to remember me. Chili dogs, beer and music." [Laughter] "Because I had a great life. A great life. Celebrate it."

[Molly sobbing]

Molly: Oh, Jake, you find a way to take care of me, even after you're gone.

Lily: I woke up early and saw that Holden hadn't been home. And I called him, and he told me that -- what happened with Jake. And he told me that you were there with Abigail. And I think that is just wonderful.

Aaron: I already told Holden, I was just hanging out.

Lily: Well, I know better. Once I heard what had happened, I just wanted to talk to Caleb and tell him why we needed you here.

Aaron: He's a hard guy to convince.

Lily: Well, I guess he made the right decision and decided to let you stay on his own. But I would have fought for you. I want you to know that.

Aaron: I hear ya.

Luke: Aaron! Hey.

Aaron: Hey.

Luke: Can I be late for school? Aaron and I need to chill for awhile.

Lily: No, absolutely not. But the good news is that you guys will have plenty of time to chill, as you say, for a long time.

Holden: That is right. Because Aaron's gonna be staying here for as long as he wants.

Luke: All right!

Lily: Yeah, we should talk about school for you, too. You have a lot of options. And we have to enroll right away.

[Horn honking]

Luke: That's grandma. You want to walk me out? We can tell her the news together.

Aaron: Let's hit it.

Holden: Thank you for welcoming my son the way you did.

Lily: I meant every word of it. It's not just good for him, it's good for us, too.

Holden: I thought you wanted to talk to him about schools?

Lily: I think that's why he left, Holden.

Rosanna: Have you ever been to the Snyder farm?

Lucy: Sure.

Rosanna: Well, not so long ago, I used to live there, believe it or not. And when I was upset, I used to sit on the front porch, and this big old hound dog used to come and sit next me. And I'd scratch his ears, and he'd give me a big, old, wet sloppy kiss. He smelled like fertilizer. And he got dog hair and mud all over me. But it was really comforting. Just like your father was last night.

Lucy: I'm not sure I understand.

Rosanna: Well, I was upset about Carly, and your dad came and sat next to me just like that old dog used to do. It was downright touching. Really made me miss Buster.

Lucy: So, the two of you --

Rosanna: Are neighbors at the Lakeview who shared a warm friendly moment. But I don't see me kissing that particular dog again.

Craig: Hey.

Rosanna: And speaking of good timing? Hi, sweetheart. Are you ready to go? Do you mind if Parker takes an extra bear?

Craig: No, of course not. Man can't have enough bear, can he? Thank you for coming.

Rosanna: My pleasure. Come on, sweetheart.

Craig: Feel better, mm?

Lucy: Yeah. I have to admit, I had the wrong idea. I just couldn't understand you could be in love with Carly and be kissing her sister.

Craig: Yeah, I know. It -- it doesn't make any sense, does it?

Rose: So what do you think, doc? Do you see anything that could help us?

John: So how'd we do?

Dr. Ferguson: Unfortunately, not well.

Jack: Why not?

Dr. Ferguson: The epidermis has lost all its elasticity. The muscle tone is completely gone. Reversing this kind of damage will be a long and difficult process.

Rose: That's it? Long and difficult, end of story?

Dr. Ferguson: My suggestion to you both is that you check-in to the research facility in which I'm a fellow. That way, we can study your condition more fully.

Carly: Well, for how long?

Dr. Ferguson: Six months, rough estimate.

Rose: Half a year under a microscope? Well, that's an offer we just can't turn down.

Jack: Can I talk to you for a minute?

John: Excuse us.

Jack: This guy, John, he's a piece of work. I wouldn't hire him to cut Carly's toenails.

John: Oh, come on. Come on. His bedside manner leaves a little to be desired. But, you know, there's always other specialists, Jack. I don't want you to give up hope.

Jack: I'm not. I'm gonna take matters into my own hands.

John: What do you mean?

Jack: Well, the best man to undo what Weston has done is Weston himself. Wherever he is, I'll find him, I'll drag him back here.

John: Jack, that could take months. What about Parker and Rosanna?

Jack: No, Parker -- no way a court is gonna take Parker away from his mother. Once Carly's back on her feet, Rosanna will just have to step aside.

John: And suppose it drags on and on and on --

Jack: I am not gonna let that happen.

John: Yeah? What are you gonna do?

Jack: Tell Carly I'll be back later.

John: Where're you going?

Jack: What, are you my sidekick now?

John: Yes, where're you going?

Jack: I'm gonna make sure Parker stays with his mother.

Rose: Thank you for coming. Enjoy your trip back to Chicago.

Dr. Ferguson: Thank you. I'll have my office send the admission forms to Dr. Dixon.

Carly: Admission forms?

Dr. Ferguson: To the research facility. You do recall that that was my recommendation?

Rose: Oh, yes, I do recall. But don't wait by the phone for our phone call, if you catch my drift. Am I right?

Carly: Oh, yeah, she's right.

Dr. Ferguson: Failure to submit to this research would be a tremendous mistake.

Rose: Do you think I'm gonna go there, be under a microscope so you can pick at me? What do you think I am, elephant woman?

Dr. Ferguson: I gave you the benefit of my expertise. If you're unable to --

Rose: Get out of here! Go! Take your story! Take a long walk! Go! Hurry!

Dr. Ferguson: My bill will arrive shortly.

Rose: Oh, please.

Dr. Ferguson: See that you pay it within 30 days.

Carly: Okay, we'll see about that.

Rose: Good-bye! Can you believe that guy?

Carly: Elephant woman?

[Carly laughs] That's great.

Rose: Well, it's not my best material, but you know -- I think he was afraid I was gonna punch him.

Carly: Yeah. I kinda felt like punching him myself.

Rose: I wouldn't dirty my very age-spotted hands, thank you very much. But it did feel good.

Carly: Yeah, it sure did. You know why?

Rose: Because taking the air out of a balloon is much more fun than putting it in?

Carly: Because we took matters into our own hands.

Rose: You're right.

Carly: Yeah. And we gotta keep doing that -- whatever it takes. Maybe it'll work and maybe it won't, but at least we'll be fighting.

Rosanna: Oh. Hello, reverend. Care to expand upon your profoundly moving sermon from last night?

Jack: I know I came on a little strong. I just thought you should understand how Craig operates.

Rosanna: Perhaps I already do.

Jack: I didn't mean to offend you, Rosanna. That's not why I'm here.

Rosanna: Well, if you're here to see Parker, he's already down for his nap. So perhaps you could stop back --

Jack: No, it's not Parker, either.

Rosanna: You want to talk about Carly?

Jack: How'd you guess? May I come in?

Holden: Jake was a good guy.

Lily: It doesn't seem fair, you know?

Holden: I know.

Lily: I'm just worried about Abigail. Jake was so important to her.

Holden: Maybe I should call over there --

Lily: Yes.

Holden: -- And check on her. Any sign of Aaron?

Lily: No.

Holden: Well, at least we know he's not in Seattle. Hey, Abigail. How are you doing?

Abigail: I'm all right. There's a lot of people here, so it makes it easier.

Holden: Well, I'm glad to hear that.

Abigail: It's kind of weird though. Donna came with Marley, but she didn't bring the twins.

Holden: Well, maybe she thought it would be too much for them.

Abigail: I know, but Molly said she really wanted to see them.

Holden: Well, you tell Molly that, if she does want to see them, that I'll go pick them up for her any time. Okay?

Abigail: Thanks, Holden. Hey, is -- is Aaron there? I want to say hello.

Holden: Actually, I don't know where he is. But as soon as I --

Abigail: Holden, he's here.

Holden: He is?

Abigail: Yeah, he just came by. Do you want to talk to him?

Holden: Aaron's over there. No, honey, that's okay. I'll tell you what I'll do, I'll just give you a call in a little while to check on you, all right?

Abigail: Thanks. I love you.

Holden: I love you.

Abigail: That was Holden.

Aaron: Tracking me down?

Abigail: No, I was.

Aaron: How come?

Abigail: Because I have a feeling that today's pretty much gonna suck. And you always have a knack for making me feel better.

Adam: Hey. I've been looking all over for you.

Abigail: I wanted to say hello to Aaron. And it was -- a lot easier to talk out here.

Adam: What's up, Aaron? I guess I'll just see you later.

Aaron: Did I chase your boyfriend away or something?

Abigail: No, he's not my boyfriend. We -- we went out for awhile, but it was more just as friends.

Aaron: Is that the way he sees it?

Abigail: You're right. Adam's a great friend, but he wants to be more. And I just don't feel that way about him.

Aaron: That happens.

Abigail: Is that all you're gonna say?

Aaron: What do you want?

Abigail: I guess it's just -- for me, I feel that if I had -- if I had just been in love with Adam, then I wouldn't have fallen for Nick and -- maybe Jake would still be alive.

Aaron: All that matters is that you love Jake, and you would do nothing to hurt him. And beating yourself up over something you can't control -- what good does that do?

Kim: Isn't that just like Jake, leaving instructions for his own sendoff? Chili dogs, no less.

Molly: I know. Kim, after Jake was shot, he told me that he was always gonna be close by, no matter what. And when Cass was reading those words, I swear it was like he was right next to me. It was like I could reach out and touch him.

Kim: Oh, honey. You know what? I'm really worried about you. You haven't had a thing to eat today. Now, Jake would never approve of that.

Molly: No, Kim --

Kim: He wouldn't. Let me find something for you, okay?

Molly: Um -- Donna, Marley, I'm gonna call you guys and let you know when Jake's party's gonna be. And then you can bring the girls down that afternoon, okay?

Donna: But beer and loud music into all hours of the night? Don't you think they'd be better --

Molly: They don't need to stay till the end. But they're Jake's daughters, and they should be there.

Marley: Maybe it's best if we talk about this later, after you've made the arrangements.

Molly: I've missed them so much. I was just going through their closet this morning, looking at all their cute little dresses, trying to figure out what they might wear to Jake's tribute. You know what? Let me -- let me show you what I picked out.

Donna: Oh, it's okay.

Molly: No, I want to. I want you to see how beautiful they're gonna look.

Jack: Dr. Weston -- or Townes, or whoever he is this week -- invented a process that aged Carly and Rose's skin. Now, this big specialist from Chicago, he's gonna need weeks to study it before he can do anything. So now it's in my hands.

Rosanna: Meaning?

Jack: Meaning I'm gonna find Weston, get him to reveal what he did. And once we figure out the steps involved, we can work on a way to reverse it.

Rosanna: Well, that's certainly worth a try. Good luck.

Jack: The problem is, Rosanna, that's gonna take some time. And meanwhile, Parker is in your custody.

Rosanna: Well, that's not a problem. Because I'll be happy to take care of Parker as long as necessary.

Jack: Listen to me -- the reason why Parker's such a great kid is because he's got a great mother. I don't want you to forget that. Parker still belongs to Carly.

Rosanna: I have said over and over again that I'm not trying to steal Parker. If you don't believe me, I'm not sure what I can do.

Jack: What are you doing?

Rosanna: I'm writing you a check. Perhaps it'll help you find that doctor that you're looking for.

Jack: I don't want your money, Rosanna. I can find him on my own.

Rosanna: Use this to post a reward.

Jack: $1 million?

Rosanna: Afraid you'll be indebted to me?

Jack: No. No. I just don't want Carly to be.

Rosanna: She's not! This money can buy a lot of information, Jack. A lot of people, a lot of time.

Jack: Thank you. I mean that. But I want you to remember -- this doesn't buy Parker.

[Rose clears throat]

Rose: Hey!

Carly: What?

Rose: Look what I picked out.

[Carly gasps]

Carly: What?!

Rose: Yeah!

Carly: Are you and Paul engaged?

Rose: Yeah. Paul popped the question. I popped the answer.

Carly: Oh, Rose. Well, that's fantastic!

Rose: Thanks. I'm still kind of in shock, you know? I just never imagined when I was back in Atlantic City, that a guy like Paul would give me a ring like that. Isn't it gorgeous?

Carly: It is unbelievable.

Rose: Yeah.

Carly: Wow. So is that why you're not wearing it every single minute? Because you can't really believe that it's true, that it's really happening?

Rose: Oh, yeah. I'm sure -- yeah, that's it. I mean, also, you know, I'm getting used to the old self-image.

Carly: Right. Or are you just leaving it in your pocket because you're afraid that it'll make me feel jealous or something?

Rose: No, it's just that you have a lot -- enough going on in your life. You don't need to feel like you're missing out on anything like that.

Carly: I'm not missing out on anything. Jack has been great.

Rose: He is great. He's like a real-life hero, you know that?

Carly: Yeah.

Rose: He is.

Carly: Besides which, marriage -- I mean, I think -- I think I'd better put that off until I'm a little bit younger.

[Both laughing]

Rose: That's a good one. I'm gonna have to remember that one. That was very good. Very good material there.

Carly: And for now, the most important man in my life has got to be Parker.

John: You guys wanna tell me what you did to Dr. Ferguson?

Rose: Nothing. Why?

John: Because the nurse saw him weeping as he left this room.

Rose: Oh.

Carly: Well -- we -- Rose and I decided that we didn't want to be some kind of tourist attraction. And Dr. Ferguson didn't agree with our findings.

Rose: Right.

John: So what, is it on to another specialist then?

[Carly sighs]

Rose: Yeah.

Carly: Yeah. I suppose so. But, you know, let's talk about something good and happy. Like -- just tell me, what does Parker like for breakfast these days?

John: You know something? I introduced him to cinnamon toast. When he was with me. He loved it so much, we had cinnamon toast for breakfast, for lunch, for dinner, for a snack. He couldn't get enough of it! Coming out of his ears!

Carly: John, you just -- you said that Parker was with you? But where is he now?

John: Did I say that?

Carly: Yes.

John: Ah, that's a slip of the tongue. Parker is my main man. We are bonding with cinnamon toast. And my life has never been sweeter.

Rose: Oh, good one.

Carly: So I suppose I should stock up on the cinnamon, then, when I get out of here?

John: I'd do that, if I were you. Talk to you later.

Carly: Rose -- he's lying. Isn't he?

Holden: How do I get angry at Aaron for running out on us when he goes to help his sister?

Lily: You don't. Forget about it. Be grateful that he and Abigail are getting along so well.

Holden: Even Luke knows how to say good-bye, and he's not even 10.

Lily: Holden, when he's 17, he won't say good-bye. And they're different people, you know? I mean, look at you and Caleb.

Holden: Okay.

Lily: Okay?

Holden: All right. I get your point.

Lily: Good.

Holden: We have a lot of kids.

[Lily laughs]

Lily: Yes, we do.

Holden: Four, and we have another one on the way. Are we ready for all these kids?

Lily: Oh, I am ready. I am ready if you are.

Holden: Are you kidding me? I am the luckiest guy in the world.

Craig: What was that all about?

Rosanna: What?

Craig: That story about the hound dog. Is that how you see me, vaguely pathetic, mangy?

Rosanna: You asked me to convince Lucy that there was nothing between us. You didn't say anything about telling the truth.

Craig: Ah, not so fast. Not so fast. Not so fast, Rosanna. You don't get off that easy.

Rose: Know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna go to the cafeteria and get some brownies! The best brownies in the world. I'm sure you'd had 'em.

Carly: You're changing the subject, Rose. I'm asking you a question about --

Jack: Hey.

Rose: Hi, Jack.

Jack: You guys ready for some good news?

Carly: Yeah, I'd love some good news, but first --

Jack: I know that session with the specialist was a bust. And I don't want you to worry about that. We're going a different way.

Rose: Whatever way that is, can I go that way? 'Cause --

Jack: Well, I told Carly that we were gonna try to find Weston. And that search is heating up. We're offering a reward for his capture. And when we find him, we'll get him to tell us how to reverse what happened to you.

Rose: Well, that's great! That's great! That's wonderful news!

Jack: Now, it's gonna take a little time, but I will find him.

Carly: And I'm sure you will. If anybody can find Weston, it's you. Now, can we get back to Parker, please, just for a moment?

Jack: What about him?

Rose: You know what, guys? I have to call Paul and tell him about this doctor guy that was here. I'll be -- I'll be right --

Jack: What -- what -- somebody tell you something about Parker? What happened?

Carly: I have a very, very bad feeling that I have been lied to about where Parker is. So I'm asking you point blank, Jack. What's going on with my kid?

Adam: Well, Abigail hasn't just come out and said that she wants to only be friends yet. But I have a feeling that's the direction that we're headed.

Margo: Adam, don't -- don't push it, especially now.

Adam: Mmm. All right, you know what? I'm gonna -- I'm gonna go to class. I'm kinda late, so --

Margo: I'll go out with you.

Adam: Okay.

Margo: Um -- where's Molly?

Kim: Oh, I think she's probably in her room. I'll let her know you were looking for her.

Margo: Okay. Thanks.

Kim: Okay.

Adam: So I'll see you later. Gimme a call if you want to talk.

Margo: And you know where to find me if you want to talk.

Abigail: Thank you. Adam's mad at me.

Aaron: Sure picked a bad time for it.

Abigail: Yeah.

Aaron: You said there's a lot of food in there, right?

Abigail: Yeah.

Aaron: I bet we could put a dent in it.

Abigail: Okay.

Marley: When are you planning on telling her?

Molly: Telling me what?

Donna: Oh, are those the little dresses?

Molly: If there's something I need to know, I'd prefer you be honest.

Donna: No, it's all right. This is really not the time --

Molly: Tell me.

Donna: Well, I just -- there's just not a good time to talk about something like this. I don't expect you to understand right away, but -- we feel that we need to do what's best for Bridget and Michele. And -- they're going to be living with me. Permanently.
