Molly: It's so good to see you.

Tom: You know -- Jake was a hell of a man. He was a stand-up, no-bull kind of guy, and there's very few left that were like him. I am -- I am so sorry.

Molly: Thank you.

Tom: Well, he always took care of business, at least where you and the girls were concerned. So I'm here to do whatever I can to help.

Molly: You already are. Sit. I already put some coffee on.

Tom: Actually, I'm fine. I think there's a few potential problems we need to discuss.

Molly: About Bridget and Michele.

Tom: I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but Cass Winthrop has filed a petition in family court. Donna's attempting to gain joint custody of the twins. And apparently, she and Marley are very serious about this.

Molly: That's just not possible. It can't be. Because they swore that they weren't gonna take any legal action until we all had some time to breathe!

Tom: Well, I think emotions are running very high. I'm sure Cass advised them that they're in a very good position to move forward right now.

Molly: What position is that? I was married to Bridget and Michele's father.

Tom: You didn't try to legally adopt the girls.

Molly: We intended to. Tom, you knew that better than anyone.

Tom: Unfortunately, intentions don't count for much as far as the court is concerned. You have no legal claim to your daughters.

Simon: Look, are you sure you haven't seen Katie the last couple of days?

Craig: I have neither seen nor heard from her in days. What's wrong? Did you lose her?

Simon: Do you have any idea where she might be?

Craig: Try the Oakdale Police Department. She's a frequent guest.

Simon: No, she hasn't been arrested. I already checked that. I've checked the hospital, the morgues.

Craig: Well, have you tried that little God-forsaken island in the middle of the Atlantic?

Simon: She's disappeared, Craig.

Craig: Leave her alone, and she will come home with her shopping bags and boxes behind her.

Simon: And you're not worried about her at all?

Craig: Katie always worries me. I'll see you later, Simon.

[Tires screeching]

Henry: Thought he'd never leave.

Katie: Oh. I can't keep living like this, Henry.

Henry: Well, you can die trying, Katie. Actually, you know, after our time spent in that fleabag hotel in Peoria, this little hovel seems like the four seasons.

Katie: Well, I had to go someplace where Simon would never think of seeing me, okay? Of course, I wouldn't have had to go there in the first place if you hadn't brainwashed me into thinking that Simon was actually trying to kill me.

Henry: Oh, what happened to that oh-so-serene yet secure little hideout in a certain penthouse suite at the Lakeview? Whatever happened to that four-star room service and magnificent martinis, and the adorable way that they folded the tissue into those cunning little points? "Let us go there, you and I." Why do we have to come back here to the scene of the crime?!

Katie: Because I have to find something that connects Simon to either Dahlia's disappearance or -- Jill's murder. I have to know, once and for all, if the man of my dreams is a murderer.

Craig: Oh. You're up bright and early.

Rosanna: So are you. You always struck me as the type who'd like to sleep in.

Craig: I do, under the right circumstances.

Rosanna: And those would be?

Craig: Good company. But there's no rest for the weary.

Rosanna: Not to mention the wicked.

Craig: What's your excuse?

Rosanna: Early bird catches the worm.

Craig: And am I the worm?

Rosanna: You've had your moments.

Craig: Before we get carried away, Lucy's off at school, so she will not interrupt us.

Rosanna: Oh, I'm quite sure there'll be nothing to interrupt today.

Craig: Where's Parker?

Rosanna: Well, that's why I'm here. I thought you might want to know that I have relinquished Parker to the care of his mother.

Craig: You want a hospital patient to care for a child?

Rosanna: Well, that's the other bit of news I thought you might want to hear. Carly has checked herself out of Oakdale Memorial, and now she and Parker are the happy guests of one Detective Jack Snyder. Guess you lost this round. And you could wipe that smirk off your face. Hmm!

Craig: Misery loves company.

Rosanna: I'm not miserable. Because, unlike you, I have succeeded. I came. I saw. I conquered.

Craig: Oh, well, then, is this farewell?

Rosanna: Oh, no. Not by a long shot, sweetness.

Jack: Morning, beautiful.

Carly: It's morning?

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Carly: What are we still doing on the couch?

Jack: Oh, you fell asleep last night. I didn't have the heart to wake you.

Carly: I haven't slept that well in -- in forever. How about you?

Jack: Oh, I had you in my arms. I was in heaven.

Carly: I'd forgotten how peaceful this house is.

Jack: Yeah. It is now.

Carly: What does that mean?

Jack: Nothing. Nothing. I just like having you guys around. That's all. It'd kind of be nice to have you around forever.

Carly: I can't think of a place I'd rather be. I'm gonna go upstairs, check on Parker.

Jack: No. You know what? Let me do that for you.

Carly: Jack, please. I want to. It's been a long time since I've seen that little guy wake up.

Jack: But you're gonna have plenty of time to do that. What's the rush?

Carly: Jack --

[Knock at door]

Carly: What -- you get the door. I'll check on Parker.

Jack: Hey, Margo. Business or pleasure?

Margo: Guess.

Jack: Listen, if this is about that case that Simon took on, listen --

Margo: I got a fax from the German Government. They got him, Jack. The doctor who performed those experiments on Carly, Emily and Rose.

Jack: You're kidding. They got Weston?! This is great! Well, when's he gonna be here?

Margo: He's being extradited as we speak.

Katie: We're not gonna find anything. Because there's nothing to find. Simon is innocent.

Henry: No? Well, that's what they said about Travis McDonald.

Katie: Who?

Henry: Oh, he was a gigolo, murderer, husband, widower. About four times over. That was until they found out -- ha, ha, ha! Bingo!

Katie: What, you found something?

Henry: It's worse than I thought.

Katie: What is it? A picture of me from Simon's toolbox. What does that prove?

Henry: I found the picture next to a hacksaw, Katie. Picture here, hacksaw here. Oh, come on! Wake up! This is the sickest thing I've ever seen --

Katie: Oh, would you stop the drama, Henry? All right? God, you have to see a doctor.

Henry: You know, I was thinking the same thing about you. Denial may not be a river in Egypt, but it can be a fatal disease.

Katie: You were on that island way too long.

Henry: And whose fault was that?

Katie: Just stop changing the subject, all right? Simon keeps the picture of me in the toolbox because he loves having me around.

Henry: Katie, he's crazy!

Katie: He's crazy about me.

Simon: Yeah. And right now, he's wondering why.

Katie: Simon, what are you doing here?

Simon: I live here. Spent the last couple of nights here. Which is more than I can say for you.

Henry: We saw you -- we saw you get in your car. We saw you speed off.

Simon: That was the plan, genius. What, I wasn't supposed to hear the two of you lurking around outside? Try being a little less obvious next time. So what's going on?

Henry: This was Katie's idea.

Katie: Henry!

Henry: Yeah, and it's -- it's a funny story, when you think about it. Little wifey here has it in her mind that she's married to an axe murderer!

Katie: He's lying.

Henry: Oh.

Katie: He practically kidnapped me, tried to turn me against you, all because he can't stand other people being happy.

Henry: Now, that is beside the point.

Katie: The point is he has island madness. And I should have figured it out before. He's crazy!

Henry: Yeah, Katie, maybe I am a little crazy after spending five days on the Atlantic out on a hollowed-out canoe. I'm crazy to get mixed up in this thing.

Simon: I would like a few words with my wife, please, if you don't mind.

Henry: No. No, I don't mind that. I don't mind that at all.

Katie: Henry, just meet me out by the car.

Henry: I would love to, but you wouldn't believe my schedule --

Katie: You wouldn't believe what I can do with that hacksaw if you don't.

Henry: Well, tell you what -- I don't believe that Simon is a serial killer. Remember that.

Simon: So it's probably a good time to tell me now why you ran off. And why I found you and Henry in here and what you were looking for?

Katie: I was trying to find anything that would prove you had nothing to do with Jill or Dahlia's murders.

Simon: It's pretty hard to prove a negative, isn't it? You sure you weren't looking for something that proves my guilt?

Craig: So why are you sticking around?

Rosanna: Well, I am the one who put up the reward for the capture of that doctor who destroyed my sister's face. I'd like to make sure justice is served.

Craig: Oh, generous.

Rosanna: Somebody had to do it. Besides, I'd like to make sure that Carly and Parker are on -- solid ground before I go.

[Craig laughs]

Craig: Rosanna -- I suspect your concern is questionable, at best.

Rosanna: You have some nerve questioning my motives, considering how many times you've used Parker to score points with Carly. But now she and Jack are setting up a little house in Milltown.

Craig: And you couldn't wait to share the news.

Rosanna: It's got to hurt a little. Even if my sister isn't the raving beauty she used to be, she chose Jack. And you're not the type that loses easily.

Craig: Or often. However, I will concede that my trip to the moon with Carly may have been just one of those things.

Rosanna: Really? Yesterday it was true love. Today, it's just a fabulous fling.

Craig: And how would you characterize it?

Rosanna: That's dangerously inconsistent. Kissing my sister moments before you married Barbara Ryan -- that was kind of risky, too, don't you think?

Craig: How would you know about that?

Rosanna: I have my sources.

Craig: Spies?

Rosanna: Why, yes. And a subscription to the City Times. It was quite a photograph.

Craig: Oh, you've been holding out on me, Cabot.

Rosanna: You think so, Montgomery?

Craig: Yes, you never mentioned you knew of my relationship with Carly before you came back to town.

Rosanna: Was that a requirement?

Craig: Of fair play.

Rosanna: Fair play? I'm shocked you're familiar with the term.

Craig: You didn't come back to Oakdale to save your poor, abandoned nephew.

Rosanna: I most certainly did.

Craig: No, no. This was more than a mission of mercy.

Rosanna: Then you tell me, hmm? Why am I here?

Craig: You came back to come between Carly and me.

Jack: So when's Weston's ETA?

Margo: Well, Jack, we could have him here in the country by day's end if we could just cut through some of the red tape.

Jack: All right, you know what? Let me make a few calls to this guy I know at the bureau. See if I can make things faster.

Margo: Great, thanks. Hopefully, he can repair some of the damage he did to Carly and Rose. Not to mention let us know where Emily is. So -- you ready to get back to work?

Jack: Yeah, yeah. Just let me shower, shave. I'll grab something to eat. And I'll be there in about an hour. I wanna tell Carly the good news.

Margo: Hey, you know -- maybe you should hold off telling Carly about Weston. I mean, with Steinbeck on the loose, it's still a wildcard. Anything could happen. And even if we get, you know, Weston extradited, there's no saying that he's gonna play ball with us, Jack.

Jack: Well, he'll play, all right. But -- maybe you're right about not telling Carly. She's had enough disappointments for awhile.

Margo: Yeah. Okay. I'm gonna get back to the cop shop. Just wanted to spread the good news.

Jack: All right. Thank you so much, Margo.

Margo: Yeah.

Jack: Hey. What happened? Where's Parker?

Carly: Oh, he's completely zonked, sleeping peacefully.

Jack: Oh.

Carly: Who was at the door?

Jack: That was Margo. She just had to brief me on a case. So -- you ready for breakfast?

Carly: Yeah. Hey, Jack? What happened to master bedroom?

Jack: Well, what do you mean?

Carly: It's bizarre. There's not a stick of furniture in there. It's empty. What happened while I was gone?

Tom: I wish I could be more optimistic about the situation with your in-laws. Unfortunately, Donna and Marley are the twins' blood relatives.

Molly: Whereas I just what? Loved them, took care of them, bathed them, dressed them, taught them, played with them, protected them every day of their life here? They couldn't be more mine if I'd given birth to them myself.

Tom: I know you feel that way, Molly.

Molly: No, it's not just that I feel that way. It is that way. You know I wanted to adopt them more than anything in this world.

Tom: Jake had mentioned that to me.

Molly: But -- we just waited. We waited because we wanted them to be old enough to understand the choice that we were making. I remember when Bridget called me "mommy" for the first time. And I was so unbelievably happy, I went into the next room, and I cried like a baby. And she came in there, and she hugged me and said, "don't cry, mommy. Don't cry." In my heart, I am their mommy. And they mean every bit as much to me as Abigail does. So I don't see where we need it in writing to prove that we were a family or how much we mean to each other. Because that kind of proof is in the heart.

Tom: Well, I know that, Molly.

Molly: But you're telling me that I've lost them.

Tom: Did you hear me say that? Because I'm not here to advise you to throw in the towel. I'm here to find out how far you're willing to go, how hard you're willing to fight. Because this will not be easy.

Molly: Nothing worth fighting for is easy. I can't lose my babies. I'll do whatever it takes.

Katie: Why would I try to prove you guilty? You're my husband, and I love you.

Simon: And you had all the faith in the world in me. Until Jill Scully's body falls at your feet. I can see it in your eyes, Katie.

Katie: No, what you see is me struggling, struggling to try and figure out why you would lie to the Police.

Simon: But I'm not -- I'm not lying to you! Okay? This is not a game. People are dying, Katie. Your life is in danger. I don't know how else I can get it through your head! I can't believe you. Running off like that, sneaking around -- I had no idea where you were until I heard the two of you -- your voices outside.

Katie: You were worried about me?

Simon: Of course I was worried about you! We were planning on going away together so I could keep you safe. That's all I can think about at the moment, is keeping you safe! I don't know what I would do if anything happened to you. Don't you know that?

Katie: I know you're disappointed, and I'm sorry that you were worried about me. But come on! Any other wife would've taken off as soon as that body hit the floor!

Simon: That's exactly what you did.

Katie: No, I did not run away. Henry and I went to some crummy motel and watched bad cable. I'm sorry. I was scared.

Simon: Well, if you feel safer with him than you do with me, then something is seriously wrong.

Katie: No, no. I just had to clear my mind.

Simon: You were trying to avoid me.

Katie: It was a panic, gut reaction. I'm sorry.

Simon: Well, maybe your instincts were right after all, Katie. Maybe you should run for your life. Before I kill you, too.

Rosanna: What a gigantic ego you have. You really are unbelievable.

Craig: You seemed to enjoy the size of my ego the other night. When I'd first seen Carly.

Rosanna: I was being supportive.

Craig: Ah, yes. That succulent kiss you keep calling "support."

Rosanna: I was exhausted from taking care of Parker all day. You were emotional. We made a mistake.

Craig: No, you knew what you were doing.

Rosanna: I didn't come here to steal you from my sister.

Craig: Yeah.

[Craig laughing] Whatever you say.

Rosanna: If I wanted you, Montgomery, all I would have to do is open my checkbook and flash some cash.

Craig: Of course.

Rosanna: As if you knew anything about human emotion.

[Craig sighs]

Craig: So why are you staying?

Rosanna: I like the place, okay? Not that I have to explain this to you or anybody else. But I was here first. I had a life here. I had friends I loved, a man who cared about me. First time in my life I didn't feel judged. First time in my life I think I was happy.

Craig: Why did you leave?

Rosanna: Because my darling sister came calling, determined to destroy it all. And guess what? She succeeded.

Jack: Well, I just didn't feel like sleeping in that room anymore. So I decided it was time for a change.

Carly: So you decided that it was -- what? -- Time to trash everything in sight?

Jack: Hey, Carly, you know me. Caveman wants space, caveman makes space. Now caveman wants to cook. So what do you want for breakfast? Charred pancakes or charred bacon and eggs?

Carly: Hey? How about a heaping helping of the truth, Jack? Something happened, that's obvious. And I'm gonna find out what it is. And you can tell me. I can call Margo, I can call Holden, or you can tell me the truth yourself.

Jack: Okay. It's not easy to talk about.

Carly: Whatever it is, Jack, you know I love you. Just start at the beginning.

Jack: While you were gone, I found a lead on where you might be. And I was on my way to France when Steinbeck found out about it and made sure I didn't make that flight.

Carly: What happened?

Jack: Somehow -- I don't know how -- maybe he bribed people, maybe he hacked into computers, I don't know. But he had Julia released from the hospital.

Carly: What? I cannot believe that!

Jack: Yeah, neither could I. But she showed up here armed with a stun gun, ropes, straitjacket, pharmaceuticals. You name it, she had it. And she -- she held me prisoner for a while.

Carly: She held you prisoner?

Jack: Yeah.

Carly: You said a while. For how long, Jack? Why didn't anybody stop her?

Jack: Nobody knew she was free. And everyone thought I was in Europe. We were alone here for days before anyone suspected. She kept me tied to the bed, sedated.

Carly: Oh, God.

Jack: Yeah, that's why I can't sleep in that room anymore, Carly.

Carly: What did she do to you?

Jack: You know, none of that -- none of that matters anymore.

Carly: Jack? What did she want?

Jack: She wanted me to pay. She thought I owed her for ruining her life.

Carly: No, something happened, Jack. I can tell. Something terrible. Too terrible to talk about? Because you can. You can talk to me about anything, Jack. We've always been able to talk to each other. Yes, you can tell me this, Jack. Especially this. I love you! What did she want?!

Jack: She wanted me. She -- she wanted to have sex with me.

Carly: And? Did you? Jack? Oh, Jack, I'm sorry. Oh, God. I am so sorry, Jack.

Carly: I am so sorry that she did that to you, Jack

Jack: No, that's --

Carly: I'm so sorry that I wasn't here to help you, that I wasn't here to kill her, Jack.

Jack: It's okay. It's all right.

Carly: No, this is not okay!

Jack: It can be because it's over! And it's not gonna happen again.

Carly: Where is she?

Jack: She's gone. All right? She is long gone.

Carly: I'm sorry. Here I was, so worried about myself, I didn't even think about how my being gone affected you. I never imagined -- who could imagine something like that?

Jack: It's not easy to talk about.

Carly: No, I know.

Jack: But I need you to know that I was not a willing participant in any of this. You know, she had drugs.

Carly: Listen to me. You don't have to explain.

Jack: She had drugs. She tied me down. She threatened me. Carly, I didn't have a choice.

Carly: Jack, I understand. You don't have to explain it to me. God, that woman is straight from hell, Jack. I thought I hated her before.

Jack: Listen to me. She's gone, all right. She can't hurt us anymore. We're together again. Hey, Parker. Parker's upstairs asleep, and I love you. That's all that matters.

Carly: So this is why you can't be in your own room. Sweetie, I -- don't you think maybe you should talk to somebody about this?

Jack: Hey, I'm talking to you, okay. And it's history. Listen, as soon as you feel up to it, we'll go shopping. We'll buy some new bedroom furniture. And as soon as it is delivered, I will pick you up and I will personally carry you into that room and I will prove to you that now that you're home, that's -- that's all that matters. You're my medicine.

Katie: Now that's ridiculous. Simon, you would never kill me. You would never even hurt me, so stop saying things like that.

Simon: Yeah, well, it doesn't matter what I say anymore, does it? Not if you believe that I killed Dahlia and then followed up with Jill Scully. Well, no wonder you think you're next on the list. It all adds up, doesn't it?

Katie: No, it doesn't.

Simon: Are you sure?

Katie: I'm just very confused, okay.

Simon: No. No, I think you know exactly what you're doing. I know about those fat checks that you've gotten from Dahlia's production company.

Katie: I told you about that first check.

Simon: Yeah, but you didn't tell me about the others. I found the deposit slips floating around the place after you ran off with your flaky friend.

Katie: Why are you checking out my bank account?

Simon: Because I was worried about you. You'd disappeared, Katie. I was looking for clues, anything to find a reason why you went missing. So can you imagine my surprise when I learned how wealthy my little wife is?

Katie: I was gonna tell you about those checks --

Simon: When? When, when? When? After I took a polygraph test? You know, what? It doesn't matter anymore, does it? Because it's over.

Katie: What's over?

Simon: Everything, Katie. The marriage, the honeymoon, us. 'Cause if you're sneaking around like this, because if you look in my eyes with fear instead of love, Dahlia's already won.

Tom: We have to be careful because if we start digging dirt, they're gonna start flinging mud.

Molly: And my past will come back to haunt me yet again.

Tom: Nick Scudder's murder trial gained a lot of publicity. The judge will hear about your involvement with Nick, as well as with other men. He will be aware that you have a criminal record. And be prepared, because they're probably gonna try to drag Abigail into this and make her a part of this.

Molly: But Abigail was innocent.

Tom: Well, did you or did you not send the girls to Bay City for the duration of that trial?

Molly: For their own protection, yes.

Tom: You were afraid that you couldn't protect your own children? You thought, in your opinion, that they'd be safer with a grandmother and an aunt?

Molly: You're twisting this all around, Tom.

Tom: Look, I'm not trying to upset you. I'm trying to show you how brutal this is gonna be. The other side is gonna use any piece of information they can to try to prove you the lesser parent.

Molly: It's not fair. My babies belong with me.

Tom: And I am here to fight for you. But I need to know that you will go to the wall to gain custody. It's gonna be long, it's gonna be bitter. Are you ready for that?

Jack: Thank you.

Carly: How did you get away from her?

Jack: Well, Simon and Margo figured out what was going on.

Carly: And did she really think she could win you back? Is she that nuts?

Jack: She's nuts, all right, but she wasn't here to reconcile.

Carly: Then what did she want, Jack?

Jack: She wanted me dead. After she was through with me, she tied me up, locked me in a car and let it roll into the lake.

Carly: Oh, Jack.

Jack: If Margo and Simon and the guys hadn't shown up when they did --

Carly: What would I do without you? How could she do that to you? How could she do that to you, Jack?

Jack: No, don't, don't. Don't do this. Everything is okay. We're gonna be all right. Hey, listen, we needed some new furniture around this place anyway.

Carly: I hate it. I hate what she did to you. I can't stand it. And what I hate most is that there is nothing that I can do about it.

Jack: Well then, you know a little how I feel about Weston and what he did to you. But we can't let what happened change us.

Carly: Well, it's a little too late for me where that stands.

Jack: Well, the really important stuff hasn't changed, Carly. I still -- I still get a thrill just holding your hand and looking into your eyes. Feeling your heart beat next to mine. That stuff -- that -- that'll never change. Hey, you gonna be all right here by yourself for a while?

Carly: Wait, you say all those wonderful things to me, and you're gonna leave.

Jack: Well, something came up at work that needs my personal attention. Need anything?

Carly: Just you. Maybe Parker and I will head over to Molly's.

Jack: Oh, yeah, sounds good. I shouldn't be too long. That is if something tears me away.

Craig: It sounds to me like you came to town to revel in your sister's misfortune? Fun to kick a girl when she's down?

Rosanna: Now, it's true I might harbor a few resentments against my sister, but revenge? It's so tacky.

Craig: It's only natural. It's only natural.

Rosanna: Who arrived to take care of Parker when my sister was missing? Who put up a small fortune in reward money for that doctor's arrest?

Craig: Parker was already being well looked after by John Dixon. And Jack and I and the Oakdale PD and Interpol and the Rotary Club were already looking for Weston.

Rosanna: It's just amazing how some things can change. Last time I was in Oakdale, my sister was the town pariah.

Craig: How so?

Rosanna: Once upon a time, just three short years ago, Carly's then-husband, Brad -- who happened to be Jack's brother -- made a very public announcement one night. He said Carly was passing off her child as John Dixon's son, when in fact Hal Munson was the father.

Craig: And?

Rosanna: And she did it to meet the terms of a financial arrangement that I had set up.

Craig: I'm afraid I'm missing the point.

Rosanna: Well, I guess that is the point. You're just like everybody else. You seem to love Carly and her little foibles. You worry about her. Friends worry about her. She's even has the love of a decent, hardworking cop. The girl has it all.

Craig: Including the life you had before she got here.

Rosanna: Well, that's a fascinating assessment. I never thought of it that way.

Craig: Most women might want to even the score.

Rosanna: Don't be ridiculous. I'd never hurt a fly. And I'm not most women.

Katie: No, Simon, you're wrong. Dahlia hasn't won anything.

Simon: Yeah? When all I wanted to do was protect you, you ran away from me. Now I come back here and find you sneaking around, trying to get the goods on me.

Katie: No, if you think that that's what I was trying to do, you're --

Simon: Then level with me. Level with me, Katie. Where would you be right now if I hadn't come back here and found you here, huh? On the run? Trying to escape me? Filing for divorce? Huh, or maybe you'd just call your big sister up and rat me out to the police?

Katie: Do you really think that I would do that?

Simon: Do you really think I'm a killer? It's that simple, Katie. Either you know that I'm a murderer or you know I'm an innocent man.

Katie: I know what I know.

Simon: Which is it then, huh? Am I guilty? Am I the killer? Yeah. Maybe that's what I've been doing, sitting around the last few days, maybe weeks, maybe even months, plotting a way to take you out.

Molly: Do you know what Jake and I went through to find those two little beauties? And how much it meant to me for Jake to ask me to be their mother?

Tom: And I will do everything I can to fight to keep your family together, but you need to assure me that you're ready for a frontal assault from the other side.

Molly: Bridget and Michele will be put in the middle of a free-for-all. But could I actually spend the rest of my life looking at pictures in photo albums and looking at their little clothes all boxed away, remembering them as two little girls that just came to stay with me for a little while? Who I know will forget who I am? When can I see them again, Tom?

Tom: I will file for a counter-motion in court today. And I'm pretty sure that the judge will return them to your custody, at least temporarily.

Molly: You call me as soon as you hear anything.

Tom: I want you to think a great deal about everything that we've discussed today. And when you've made a decision, I want you to call me and tell me how you want to proceed. And I am sorry.

Molly: That's okay. Thank you for being straight with me.

Tom: Anything you need, you call me.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Hey.

Molly: Hey.

Carly: All right, what was Tom Hughes doing here making you cry?

Molly: Vicky's mother and sister -- they're trying to take Bridget and Michele away from me.

Carly: Well, you are not gonna let them do that, right?

Simon: I'm trying to scare you into reality. Jill Scully tells you that your life is in danger, then she winds up dead. Do the math, Katie, please! Just take the warning seriously!

Katie: I do.

Simon: Then start acting on it!

Katie: Okay, okay. You know what? You're right. It was stupid of me to run off like that.

Simon: Why did you do it?

Katie: A dead body fell at my feet, and then all of a sudden, you're lying to the police. I don't know, I freaked! I came home, Henry was here, I lost my mind.

Simon: You lost faith in me.

Katie: That doesn't mean I ever stopped loving you.

Simon: No, maybe you love me, but you don't trust me anymore. I do not know how I could prove to you or the cops that I'm not responsible for any of this.

Katie: So what do we do now?

Simon: I don't know. But you know, I think the best thing for you to do is just to take care of yourself.

Katie: How?

Simon: Well, you don't trust me, so you can't trust anyone. Stay away from Henry. Stay away from anywhere where Dahlia might find you. And you know, Katie, most importantly, stay away from me.

Jack: Yeah, all right. I'll talk to you. Oh, this is great.

Margo: What's up?

Jack: Weston is en route to Oakdale as we speak. And I'm telling you, Margo, whether or not this psycho can undo the damage he's done to Rose and Carly, I'm making sure that he goes down for this, hard time. No state prison or white-collar resort for this guy. He's going federal.

Margo: Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Jack: Hmm.

Margo: How is Carly?

Jack: She's good.

Margo: Does she know about what happened while she was gone?

Jack: You mean about Julia? Well, she got the gist. I decided to leave out the part where Julia is still on the loose, though. She doesn't need to deal with that right now.

Margo: How about you? Are you dealing with it, Jack? Because the longer you keep these emotions bottled up inside --

Jack: Wait a minute, whoa. Whoa, wait a minute. What do you wanna hear, Margo? That I can hardly sleep because of the nightmares? And when I finally do pass out, I wake up in a cold sweat wondering if Julia had found her back?

Margo: Oh, Jack, if that's what's happening --

Jack: It's over. It's history.

Margo: You really believe that?

Jack: You know, Dr. Michaels, she's a hell of a shrink. She's gonna work wonders with Hal. I don't need a shrink.

Margo: Jack, it's nothing, a little therapy couldn't hurt.

Jack: Finding Julia and Weston and Steinbeck -- that's all the therapy I need.

Carly: Donna and Marley are the in-laws that give in-laws a bad name.

Molly: But they were the sweetest people in the world.

Carly: No, Molly, you just thought they were. And now they're finally showing their fangs and their claws. Who knows how long they've been waiting, just biding their time, waiting to snatch up those girls.

Molly: They couldn't have been planning this when Jake was alive.

Carly: Oh, come on, Molly. Some people will do anything to get their hands on a child. And when that person happens to be a relative as well, watch out!

Molly: Where is this coming from?

Carly: My beloved sister tried to do the same thing with Parker.

Molly: I knew she wouldn't get very far with that. You're Parker's mommy. You have rights.

Carly: And you are Bridget and Michele's mommy.

Molly: Not in the eyes of the court.

Carly: Then you just have to prove to that court that they're wrong.

Molly: And what if it gets nasty?

Carly: Well then, it gets nasty. Hat? Fighting dirty is our strongest suit.

Molly: I'm so glad you're here. I lost Jake, and now I could lose our daughters.

Carly: No. You won't. You will not lose anybody else, Molly. Not while I'm around.
