Isaac: Hold on, Bonnie. These floors are slippery.

Bonnie: I am not an infant, Isaac. I've been walking by myself for quite a few years now. Ooh, ow!

Isaac: So you did that on purpose, right? Just to see if I was on my toes?

Bonnie: Could you be a little more sympathetic? I nearly twisted my ankle!

Isaac: Come here. You can lean on me.

Bonnie: Uh -- no, that's okay. It'll be fine. You know, I couldn't imagine anything more horrible than being chained down here, with nothing but rats for company.

Isaac: I can.

Bonnie: What?

Isaac: Marrying the head rat himself. Ian MacLaren is a fraud. Now, he's setting you up, and you're letting him.

Bonnie: You've already been proven wrong about that, Isaac. Ian has money. He doesn't need mine.

Isaac: That's what his books say, but I have books back at Java Underground. A couple pen marks, I can make them say whatever I want.

Bonnie: Look, can we just get on with this? I'm starting to get a chill.

Isaac: Well, that's the thing about dungeons. There's no thermostats. Billy! It's Isaac and Bonnie, to prove once and for all Ian locked you up down here. Billy! Everything okay?

Bonnie: I don't -- I don't hear anything, Isaac.

Isaac: Hope he didn't pass out.

[Door creaks open] Billy?

[Bonnie sighs]

Bonnie: I knew it. I knew this was just another excuse so you can get me down here and tell me more lies!

Molly: Okay.

Tom: Molly, give me a plate. Thank you.

Molly: I will not let those two ruin Jake's night.

Tom: Uh-uh. Look at that. Pretty good moves for a lawyer, huh?

Molly: I don't want Donna and Marley here. I made that very clear, Tom.

Tom: I know you did. And I think you should discuss it with them. As soon as you calm down.

You feel like dancing get up there and let's starting dancing

Donna: What a nice picture.

Marley: Still can't believe he's gone.

Tom: I did tell Donna that you did not want her and Marley at Jake's farewell party. So you stay here, and I'll go ask them to leave.

Molly: No, how about you stay here, and I go toss them out on their butts?

 Tom: You know what? You do not want to cause a scene.

 Molly: Jake would. If two people were messing with his family the way those two are, he would have no mercy.

 Tom: Listen to me. You're about to face a very long and difficult battle for the custody of Bridget and Michele. You have a public meltdown, and you're going to hurt your case.

 Molly: I'm not going to forget this, Tom. They should have honored my wishes.

 Tom: And I agree with you. Donna and Marley go a long way back with Jake. And I believe they really loved him.

Molly: This isn't -- the point. They aren't here because of Jake.

Tom: What do you mean by that?

Molly: If that was it, they would've had their own mourning session, private, somewhere else. They came here to work on me about Bridget and Michele, and I won't stand for it.

Alison: Oh, my God. He's looking right at me.

Alison: Did you see that?

Lucy: He acted like you weren't even there.

 Alison: Yeah. How cool was that?

Aaron: Any word yet for who broke into the house?

 Rose: No, not yet. Nothing.

 Aaron: Strange.

 Rose: I know. I know. Hey, you know, would you mind --

 Aaron: I have been.

 Rose: What?

 Aaron: Keeping an eye on the house. I drive by. I look around.

Rose: Oh. You're good. Ah, thanks. You're very good.

Paul: Hey, hey, hey.

Alison: Do you see that? Rose D’Angelo is moving in on my man.

Lucy: She's engaged, Alison.

Alison: So what? She probably wants one more fling before she settles down.

Lucy: Okay, don't you think he's a little young for her?

[Alison sighs]

Alison: You're so naive.

Craig: We can sing. What, do you want me to stay by your side or do you want to run this scam by yourself?

Rosanna: I don't care. Do what you like.

[Craig chuckles]

Rosanna: I already told you -- I have no agenda here except to represent my family because Carly can't.

Craig: Yes, of course. It doesn't hurt to make yourself look good in front of her friends and neighbors, either.

Rosanna: Excuse me. I have some old friends to comfort. Kim, hello. Hi.

Kim: Rosanna?

Rosanna: So nice to see you. Yes.

Kim: I'm surprised to see you.

Rosanna: Well, I'm here for Carly. She can't pay her respects because she's stuck at the hospital. But I know how much she cared about Jake. And, well, I'm just here to do for Carly what she would do if only she could.

Kim: Good.

Rose: Jake was a great guy, you know? He could fit in anywhere, here, at the Lakeview. He was one in a million.

Paul: You okay?

Rose: Ah, more okay than I deserve to be. You know? Got to smack Dr. Weston. I got -- Dr. Bob's going to work on my face. I'm here with the best-looking guy. If only my heart wasn't breaking.

Paul: Come here. How did I live without you?

Jack: Well, everything's all set. All we got to do is toss him in the hole and wait for the feds to fish him out.

Margo: Looks like your party's over, Dr. Weston.

Dr. Weston: We'll see.

Margo: You never should have let Bob Hughes videotape your procedure on Carly Tenney. 'Cause now you don't have any more secrets. And without your secrets, you're nothing.

Dr. Weston: That procedure is mine. Dr. Hughes is never going to be able to duplicate it.

Jack: Actually, Bob said it wouldn't be that big of a problem.

Dr. Weston: Well, he's deluding himself.

Jack: Or you're not as big a genius as you think. You know, if anybody asks me where I got that list of herbs and chemicals you had me make up, I'm going to say I got it from Bob Hughes.

Dr. Weston: Wait a minute. You -- you can't do that. Those formulae -- they're the cornerstone of my research.

Jack: And if Bob Hughes wins that Nobel Prize you covet so much, I'm going to make sure he doesn't mention you in his acceptance speech. What do you think about that? I think we've got his attention.

[Margo laughs]

Margo: I think so. Come on. Look, I got to go to Jake's memorial at Mabel's Red Hots. Any chance you're going to make it over there?

Jack: Well, I'm going to stop by the hospital and make sure Carly's okay. If she's doing all right, then, yeah, I'll stop over to say hello.

Margo: What time do her bandages come off?

Jack: Well, sometime tonight, assuming that --

Margo: Yeah, it's going to be fine. Just fine. Wish Carly luck for me.

Jack: Yeah.

Dr. Weston: You know, detective, your precious Carly, well, she's well beyond luck by now. In fact, she's beyond anything anyone can do to help her.

Jack: Are you talking?

Dr. Weston: But I guess that's what happens when you let a madman operate on the woman you love.

Jack: What are you saying?

Dr. Weston: You know that beautiful face of hers? I destroyed it.

Carly: Help me. Help me! Somebody help me, please! Help me!

John: Carly, Carly, Carly. Shh, shh.

Carly: John!

John: What is it? What's the matter?

Carly: It hurts, John! My face!

John: It's all right now. Calm down.

Carly: It's on fire, John! Help me, please! Help me, please!

[Carly screaming]

Jack: What -- what are you trying to pull now here? You trying to mess with my head? It's still not too late for me to shoot you.

Dr. Weston: I just thought that you'd want the complete story, detective.

Jack: We had the complete story. You performed a procedure. You assured everyone that Carly's face would be fully restored.

[Dr. Weston laughs]

Dr. Weston: And you took me at my word, didn't you?

Jack: Okay, what have you done?

Dr. Weston: I was aware that you were videotaping the procedure without my permission. And so I made something of an adjustment in the procedure.

Jack: No, that was impossible. Bob Hughes was there the whole time. You didn't make any changes.

Dr. Weston: Bob Hughes didn't see what I was doing, and neither did your video camera. All I did -- I added a certain chemical compound to the process.

Jack: What chemical compound? What -- what's going to happen to Carly?!

Dr. Weston: I would say around now, she's beginning to feel like her face is on fire. Shortly afterwards, she'll feel -- well, nothing. Nothing at all. That is, until the bandages are removed, and she sees her face for the first time. You know what a marshmallow looks like when it's been roasted for too long and it kind of loses its shape and it has that sizzled quality?

Jack: Okay, you shut up. Shut up right now! Unless you really don't care if you live or die.

Dr. Weston: I just wanted you to have a good idea of what the face you love so much is going to look like for the rest of your life. And nothing anyone can do will fix it!

Jack: Come on. Come with me, right now. Right here. Take him. Get him outta here! Get him outta my face!

Cop: Let's go. Come on.

Dr. Weston: Detective, why don't you send a photograph of her to me? I'd like to keep it for my files --

Jack: Get outta here!

John: All right, calm. Stay calm.

Carly: John, what's happening to me? I feel like I'm going to pass out.

John: I'm sure there's an explanation, Carly. Just take it easy.

Carly: It's never felt like this before. Not even when Weston took away the drugs, it never felt like this!

Bob: What's going on?

John: Well, she's experiencing new symptoms. Her temperature is elevated. She feels like she's going to pass out.

Bob: All right, Carly, Carly, we're going to take care of it. Just hang on.

John: Look, I think we should remove these bandages and try to mitigate whatever's going on underneath there.

Bob: Weston said that the skin had to be covered for a specific amount of time. If we expose it now, we could compromise the whole procedure.

Carly: Rose? Rose? Where are you?

John: Well, whatever, it's making her delusional. Listen to this.

Bob: When did these burning sensations begin?

John: Oh, I don't know. She woke up about 10, 20 minutes ago. She pressed the buzzer for the nurse, and I came in. I'm going to find something for the pain.

Bob: Okay. Carly --

[Carly wailing] Carly, it's going to be okay. We're going to take care of you, Carly. It's okay.

Carly: I have to get out of here!

Bob: Wait a minute.

Carly: I have to get out!

Bob: Where do you think you're going?

Carly: I have to find Rose. I have to find Emily. We have to get outta here! Please!

Bob: Carly, listen to me. Listen to me! Listen, listen. You're not at the spa. You're at Oakdale Memorial Hospital, and you're with friends. And nothing bad is going to happen to you.

Carly: Help me. Help me, please! It hurts. Please make it stop!

Isaac: I'm not lying. Billy was here. He was chained to this wall.

Bonnie: So where is he now? What, evaporated?

Isaac: I don't know. Maybe he escaped. Morlin! Are you down here?

Bonnie: Stuff it, Isaac. I do not want the castle staff involved.

Isaac: They are already involved. Morlin was sneaking Billy food ever since Ian and his uncle locked him up down here. Morlin! What did they do with Billy?

Bonnie: Isaac, please! Do you realize what's happening?

Isaac: Yes, I do. Ian is lying to you, and you have castle blindness.

Bonnie: No. You said he was broke. I found out he had millions. You said he locked Billy up. The dungeon is empty. Now, I have given you every benefit I can, but I can't do it any longer! My wedding is around the corner. And I deserve the right to enjoy this time in my life now, Isaac.

Isaac: Billy was here. Okay? I saw him with my own eyes.

Bonnie: This isn't going to work.

Isaac: Okay, listen -- this is what I'll do. I'll go find Morlin. I'll be able to prove that Billy was down here.

Bonnie: Don't waste your time! Everything Ian has said, everything he has done has been true. Now, he loves me, and I am going to marry him.

Isaac: What happens when you find out that Billy was chained up down here, just like I said?

Bonnie: For all I know, Billy could be back in Oakdale. Which is where you should be. Getting on with your life.

Isaac: I don't need somebody telling me where I should be. Or shouldn't be.

Bonnie: Fine! It's not the job I want, anyway. But the deal was that either you succeeded in showing me Billy was in this dungeon or that's it.

Isaac: And by "that's it," you mean what? We never see each other again?

Bonnie: Yes.

Isaac: Is that what you want?

Bonnie: Is that what you want?

Isaac: I asked you first.

Bonnie: Well, that question is pointless. Because, once I marry Ian, we will be traveling in different circles.

Isaac: Well, that's good. Because if we do happen to cross paths, don't go throwing yourself at me.

Bonnie: Trust me -- you're safe.

Isaac: Good.

Bonnie: Well -- I'd better be getting back upstairs.

Isaac: Wait. Have you ever known me to throw around accusations without first knowing that facts?

Bonnie: No.

Isaac: And at Java underground, when something went down, who was the first person who said, "we got to get all the facts"?

Bonnie: You. But --

Isaac: This is the same thing. I have enough information to know Ian is not to be trusted. And somewhere in that stubborn head of yours, I think you know that, too.

Molly: I don't want them getting too comfortable. Either you kick them out, or I will.

Lucinda: Hi, Molly. Hi, Tom.

Tom: Hi Lucinda.

Lucinda: Hi, darling.

Molly: Hi.

Lucinda: I'm so very, very sorry. He was unique. He was unique. There was only one Jake in the whole world. It's a tragedy for all of us.

Molly: I know. I keep expecting him to walk through that door.

Lucinda: I understand that. When Bryant died, I would sometimes be driving next to the -- you know, the little road going up to the house by the lake. And I wanted to stop by, have a chat with him.

Molly: When did you stop?

Lucinda: Who says I have?

Rose: Remember Jake and Molly's wedding? It seemed like they had their lives ahead of them.

Paul: Well, some things you can't anticipate. But that doesn't mean you stop making plans.

Rose: Oh, I know. And have I got a plan for you.

Paul: Oh, yeah? What's that?

Rose: To be in grabbing distance for about 100 years.

Paul: Okay.

Lucinda: Hey. Hi there.

Rose: Hi, Ms. Walsh.

Lucinda: Hi, darling.

Rose: How you doing?

Lucinda: Tonight and every night, it always makes me feel good to see you.

Rose: Aw. Thanks. I saw you talking to Molly. How's she holding up?

Lucinda: Ah -- she's still in shock, I think. That's 'cause Jake had that aura of someone who's going to be there always. [Lucinda sighs] well, let's think positively. And let's rejoice, shall we, in this wonderful engagement of you two?

Rose: Thank you.

Lucinda: You two are one formidable couple.

Rose: Oh!

Paul: Thank you, Lucinda.

Rose: That's great. Oh, you think we're hot now? In a couple days, I could be 20 years younger.

Lucinda: What do you mean?

Rose: The FBI. They caught Dr. Weston. He's doing his treatment on Carly, making' her better. And Dr. Bob Hughes is going to do the same thing on me.

Lucinda: Dr. Bob? What's he going to do? I mean, I don't care. It doesn't matter. Don't tell me what he's going to do. It's just -- it's completely logical. Or illogical. It doesn't matter. It's just wonderful! Wonderful news.

Rose: Thanks.

Kim: Oh.

Aaron: These here are well done. I can go get more, if you guys want.

Abigail: I think this is plenty. Thanks, Aaron. He's a nice brother, huh?

Kim: So I've heard.

Alison: He's coming. Don't look. How are my lips?

Lucy: Wet.

Aaron: Hey.

Alison: Hey.

Lucy: Hello.

Alison: What happened to that jacket you had on before?

Aaron: I took it off. I didn't want to get it dirty. It wasn't mine.

Alison: I can't believe how jumpy I feel today. I guess it's because I quit smoking.

Aaron: You did?

Alison: Oh. Right. You're the guy who doesn't like girls who smoke. Isn't that strange? We must be on the same wavelength.

Aaron: Yeah, I guess.

Lucy: Would you excuse me? My stomach seems to be acting up.

Alison: So -- where did you say you're from again? San Antonio?

Margo: Hi. Sorry, sorry. I'm so sorry I'm late.

Tom: Hey, it's okay. Glad you're here.

Margo: Hi, how're you doing? Have you had anything to eat?

Molly: I was just about to, but somehow I lost my appetite.

Margo: Oh. Well, hey, let me get you a beer then, huh?

Molly: That would be great. I would love it.

Margo: Great. Don't move.

Molly: Wait. Actually, I think I'll wait on that beer till after I speak to Jake's ex-relatives.

Margo: Is there a problem?

Tom: Yeah, Donna and Marley were asked to sit this one out, but they decided to override Molly's wishes.

Molly: Why don't you two go get some red hots? I need to deal with this alone.

Tom: You know what? Let's try to just keep it peaceful, okay? Nothing important is going to be resolved tonight.

Donna: Hi, Molly. How are you?

Molly: Not good.

Marley: I understand. This must be a very difficult evening for you.

Molly: Yes, it is, Marley. And you two aren't making it any easier.

Donna: I know you had request --

Molly: You know, my lawyer instructed me to play nice. But this is Jake's party, and I'm his wife. So I'm going to handle it my way. Get out. Get out. And if I hear one word of argument, I will toss you out myself. Twist left, and look for it!

Molly: I'm not going to say it again, okay? Get your things and get out!

Donna: Molly -- please don't let this get ugly.

Molly: Not ugly? You're the one that made it ugly. You didn't wait till one day after Jake died before you tried to steal his children.

Rosanna: Molly, hi. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Molly: What are you doing here?!

Rosanna: Well, obviously Carly couldn't be here. I felt that someone should represent her.

Molly: Oh, my God. And you felt that that someone should be you? If Carly knew about this, she would rip the hair out of your head.

Rosanna: I'll catch up with you later, okay?

Molly: Not unless I catch up with you first! And Carly will be right by my side!

Craig: I'm very sorry, Molly.

Molly: Did you see that? That is how I treat my enemies. I don't have many of them, but you guys have just joined the club.

Donna: We have no desire to fight with you.

Marley: Nothing would please us more than to reach a fair agreement about Bridget and Michele.

Molly: Is that what you want? Okay. Okay. All right. Well, then let's agree that Bridget and Michele should be brought home where they belong, and then maybe we'll agree on a visitation schedule for you.

Tom: Rosanna.

Rosanna: Tom, hi.

Tom: Hi. So the last time I saw you, Carly was still missing. It's nice that we have good news on that front.

Rosanna: Yes.

Tom: Are you still keeping an eye on Parker while Carly recovers?

Rosanna: Oh. Well, Parker is back with his mother and Jack Snyder. And they have someone to help take care of him while Carly gets stronger.

Tom: Well, good for them. Parker must be thrilled.

Rosanna: It was a joyous reunion.

Tom: Carly's doing well?

Rosanna: Well, like I said, she's getting her strength back. Otherwise, she'd be here. But I know how much Jake meant to her, so I felt that she should be represented at his memorial.

Tom: Sounds as if the two of you have resolved many differences.

Rosanna: She's my sister.

Alison: So, have you been having any fun since you've been in Oakdale? Because, if you'd like me to show you around, I'd -- is there something you'd like to know about my friend?

Aaron: Yeah. Why does she treat me like I ran over her dog?

Alison: Lucy's okay, once you get to know her. She's just a little backwards when it comes to boys.

Aaron: Uh-huh.

Alison: If it bothers you so much, maybe you should tell her yourself.

Aaron: Good idea. I've got a question.

Lucy: About Alison?

Aaron: No, about you. Did I do something to you? Or do you treat everybody like this?

[Cell phone ringing]

Margo: Hughes. Oh, Shanks, this better be good, 'cause I am right in the middle of -- Steinbeck? Yeah, read me the fax.

Paul: Here you go.

Rose: Ah, thank you. You know, I don't like this one bit.

Paul: What? What's that?

Rose: Losing people that I care about. First Bryant, then Jake -- I just don't want to go to any more funerals.

Paul: I know you're worried about Emily. Okay? But you saw how quickly Dr. Weston appeared. So could she.

Rose: Yeah. And she could come back better than before, right? All right, fine. To keeping the faith.

Paul: Faith.

Margo: Hi, excuse me. I just got a call from the station. There's been a report of a sighting. Steinbeck in Singapore. He was treated in an emergency room there.

Rose: Treated for what?

Margo: It was a stab wound to the abdomen. Unfortunately, he escaped before the authorities knew that he was wanted in this country.

Rose: Was there anybody else with him at all?

Margo: If you mean Barbara and Emily, I'm sorry. There's nothing.

Rose: They know who did it?

Margo: It wasn't in the report.

Paul: I can tell you who did it, Rose. It was my mother.

Bonnie: Do you know anything about projection?

Isaac: Yeah, you put the overhead down, the beams up. 90-degree angle shoots it right --

Bonnie: Not that kind of projection. Emotional projection. It's when you think someone else is feeling the same thing you are.

Isaac: What about it?

Bonnie: That's what you're doing. You don't trust Ian, so you think, deep down, that I don't, either.

Isaac: You call it what you want. Just open your eyes and take in what's happening.

Bonnie: I have taken it in, Isaac. And, you know, I don't think you've heard one word I've said since you got here. But I'm begging you, this time, just please listen to me. Ian is not the same person he used to be. He's changed. Love does that to people. And that is why I'm marrying him. It's not a whim. I am in complete control of all of my faculties. So stop treating me like some scared little thing who's going to be ran off by wild stories. Go home.

Isaac: I'll be on the next flight.

Bonnie: Fine. If you need help with any arrangements --

Isaac: Just keep this in mind, though -- when you find out that Ian has been lying to you from the jump, don't call me and expect me to come running. I turn away now -- I'm gone for good.

Bonnie: I was hoping we might still be friends.

Isaac: That's not likely.

Bonnie: All right. Okay then. Well -- it's been a pleasure. Please say hello to everyone back in Oakdale for me.

Ian: Excuse me. That person you're manhandling just happens to be my fiancée.

Bob: You know, it's possible the pain will pass. The last time this happened, it didn't last very long. Maybe it's part of the healing process.

John: True, and maybe her skin is dissolving underneath those bandages.

Bob: Listen, I had the lab check everything that was used. And there was no agent of any kind that would destroy skin.

John: But what about in conjunction with one another, causing a chemical reaction that we don't even --

Bob: John, I viewed the procedure. I saw the videotape.

John: Yeah, but that doesn't make you an expert, Bob! Don't you know --

Bob: I'm telling you -- the procedure was safe.

Jack: How's Carly?

Bob: She's experiencing some pain. We're hoping it'll pass like it did before.

Jack: How much pain?

John: She says she feels like her skin is on fire.

Jack: What -- oh, no.

Bob: What is it, Jack?

Jack: Weston just told me that he sabotaged the procedure, that Carly's face could be destroyed.

Bob: That changes everything.

Jack: Carly?

Carly: Jack.

Jack: How are you feeling?

Carly: I'm better. John gave me something for the pain. It was terrible. Felt like my face was burning.

Jack: I don't want you to worry about that right now. Just try and rest. Your skin is just adjusting to the changes, maybe.

Carly: Do you think? Do you think that's what it is? That's what it is, right?

Bob: Well, it could be. And we're going to find out in a moment. Do you think you could sit up?

Carly: I can't.

John: All right, look, we've got to take those bandages off right now.

Carly: We can't take them off. Jack, Dr. Weston said --

Jack: No, what Dr. Weston said doesn't matter anymore. All that matters is you.

Bob: Now, Carly, what we're going to do is remove all of the dressings. There are layers of gauze. And I'm going to start removing them very slowly. But, if at any time the pain returns, I want you to tell me, and I'll stop.

Carly: Okay. Jack --

Jack: I'm right here. I'm right here. Everything is going to be all right.

John: Carly, it's very important that you not move at all during this process. Stay as still as you can, all right?

Carly: All right. I'll try. The procedure didn't work, did it?

Jack: I -- I don't have an answer for that.

Carly: Jack, look at me. You want to try again?

Jack: We don't know what happened. But either way, I am right here.

Carly: Will you do me a favor?

Jack: Anything.

Carly: Don't look -- okay? -- Until all the bandages are off.

Jack: How come?

Carly: You know me. I like to put off bad news as long as possible.

Jack: You'll be fine. I won't look. But you're going to be fine.

Bob: Carly -- are you ready?

Carly: Yeah. Yeah, I'm trying to be. Jack --

Bob: Okay.

Carly: I'm scared.

Bonnie: Ian! What are you doing down here?

Ian: Looking for you. I thought perhaps you'd wandered down here by mistake.

Isaac: You sure about that?

Ian: Well, I'm quite certain. Why would you ask?

Isaac: I don't know. Maybe you're down here to check on prisoners.

Ian: "Prisoners"? This dungeon hasn't been used in over 150 years.

Bonnie: The truth is I was giving Isaac a tour. He's leaving tomorrow, and I just wanted him to see all of it.

Ian: You know what? I was under the, well, understanding that you'd already left.

Isaac: I decided to stay.

Ian: Any particular reason?

Isaac: I was worried about Bonnie.

Ian: Oh, is that why you had your arms around her? To assure yourself that she was physically sound?

Bonnie: It was just a hug between two friends, sweetheart. We were saying good-bye.

Ian: Yeah, well, the problem with Mr. Jenkins is that his good-byes are so short-lived. Perhaps this time we'll have someone escort him to the airport.

Isaac: You try to escort me anywhere, and I'm going to kick your royal highness.

[Ian laughs]

Ian: Well said, Mr. Jenkins. It's a perfect blend of machismo and wit.

Isaac: Glad you liked it. You going to write it in your diary?

Ian: Oh, I like you, Mr. Jenkins. I think, in another time and place, you and I --

Isaac: We're not in no other time and no other place than right here. I've got a couple questions to ask you.

Ian: All right, then. Go ahead.

Isaac: Something stinks.

Ian: You know, I'm not sure. But I don't think that was a question.

Isaac: Okay, let me rephrase. Whatever game you're running, I'm going to bust it wide open.

Ian: Is this some kind of typical American custom? Just making wild accusations to people you barely even know?

Bonnie: No. Now, now. What you heard was wild accusations. What I heard was concern. Let's just split the difference and say that Isaac was -- moderately agitated.

Isaac: I'm not moderately anything. I got a bad feeling about this dude, and you know what? It's time that you heard why.

Rose: You know, your mother is not my favorite person in the world. But she's a behind-the-scenes kind of gal, not an up-close and personal. Stabbing somebody? I can't see her doing that at all.

Paul: Yeah, well, James has a way of stripping people of their humanity. He drove me to shoot him. Who's to say he didn't drive my mother to stab him? How bad are the wounds?

Margo: The condition was listed as serious, not critical.

Paul: Ah, that's good. He'll be tried and convicted. Any word on where my mother is?

Margo: No.

Paul: Yeah. I didn't think so.

Margo: You know what? Look, your mother has a life here. She has friends. She has children.

Paul: No, she can't face family and friends. She doesn't have the guts.

Margo: All right. What Barbara did was horrendous. But I know that she feels remorse.

Paul: No --

Margo: The only reason she went with Steinbeck was to exchange herself for Carly.

Paul: That's the only reason she said she went with him.

Rose: You have another option?

Paul: Maybe she's plotting whose life to destroy next. They worked together once. Who's to say they're not doing it again?!

Margo: I'll let you guys know if I hear anything else.

Paul: What? What was I supposed to say?

Rose: Ah, you're not supposed to say anything. It only matters what you feel.

Paul: You just keep reminding me of that, all right?

Rose: For the rest of your life. Hmm?

Donna: Molly, I understand that you're angry. I said I wasn't going to file papers, and that's exactly what I did.

 Molly: Yeah, I know. I know what you did, Donna. I'm still trying to figure out why.

Marley: It was my fault. I thought going to court was our only option, that it was pointless to work it out among ourselves. I see now that that was a mistake.

Molly: So you're backing off?

Donna: What we would like to do is let go of the idea that the twins belong either here or in Bay City. We'd like to sit down and discuss some options and leave the lawyers out of it altogether.

Lisa: Molly. Darling, this party is such an inspiration. It's fun, and it's full of life. It's just -- well, it's exactly what you would expect from Jake.

Nancy: Molly, I've been to more of this kind of affairs than I care to remember. But I've never seen an event where there is so much enthusiasm for the person we've lost.

Molly: Thank you. And I expect to see both of you on this dance floor before the party's over.

Lisa: Wow, you hear that? Well, here we go. Let's do one for old Jake.

Molly: So you want to compromise? Let's hear it.

Lucy: I'm sorry. I didn't realize I was being rude to you.

Aaron: I've seen you only a couple times in my life. And every time, you've dissed me. It can't be something I did. I don't even know you.

Lucy: No. But I do have eyes. And I think the way you treat Abigail is disgusting.

Aaron: Abigail? What does she have to do with me and you?

Lucy: You really have no shame, do you?

Aaron: You've got a problem, honey. All right, keep it away from me.

Craig: Making friends?

Lucy: Hi, daddy.

Craig: Hey.

Lucy: So glad you're here.

Craig: Me, too. Listen, I know your grandma wanted you to come. But anytime you want to go, I'm happy to go.

Lucy: Oh, it's okay. I feel better being here. Only I just did something really stupid.

Craig: Well, now people will believe you're really my daughter. What'd you do?

Lucy: I insulted this guy who's dating Abigail Williams. It was none of my business, and now I feel terrible.

Craig: What'd you say?

Lucy: Well, he was flirting with Alison Stewart. And I told him I thought it was disgusting.

Craig: Oh.

Lucy: But then he said I had a problem and to keep it away from him.

Craig: Oh. So where is this disgusting flirtation device now?

Lucy: That's him. With Abigail. Don't make it look like you're staring.

Craig: Listen, I got bad news for you. He's not dating Abigail. He's her brother.

Lucy: Aaron's Abigail's brother?

 Craig: Half brother. He's Holden's son. Grew up in Seattle with Holden's brother.

Rosanna: Lucy? Are you okay?

Aaron: You okay if I take off?

Abigail: Yeah, sure. Thank you for coming.

Aaron: I'm going to head over to Java. So you can catch me there if you want to talk.

Abigail: Thanks. Drive carefully.

Craig: Well, would you like me to reintroduce you to --

Lucy: I have to fix this. Excuse me.

Abigail: Kim, do you have a second?

Kim: Sure, honey. What's up?

Abigail: Molly. Should I go over there?

Kim: No, honey. Just let Molly handle this. You just go ahead and keep that handsome brother of yours company.

Abigail: Well, he's already left. Not without making sure I was completely all right, though.

Kim: Ah. You two really have become very close, haven't you?

Abigail: Yeah, it's kind of funny. We just met each other, but we have this understanding.

Kim: Yeah, but you're so lucky. A lot of people don't have that with brothers that they've known their whole lives.

Abigail: Yeah, I know. Well, he asked me to go by Java later if I ever needed to talk, you know.

Kim: Uh-huh.

Abigail: I may take him up on that.

Kim: Well, be sure and say good-bye, now, before you leave. Okay, darling.

Craig: You're very good mourning. You could win "most conviviality."

Rosanna: I feel very comfortable being amongst old friends.

Craig: Even the widow who loathes you?

Rosanna: Molly's upset about Jake. I'm not going to take her anger personally.

Craig: This "I'm here to support my sister" routine is getting old. Especially since everyone knows, if Carly were drowning, you'd throw her an anvil.

Kim: Excuse me. There are a lot of people out there waiting to talk to you. I'm sure that Donna and Marley would understand.

Molly: We've just been discussing Bridget and Michele.

Kim: Oh, good. Any headway?

Donna: Kim, this is a family matter. And I would appreciate it if you wouldn't intrude any further than you already have.

Kim: Donna, I just made a couple of phone calls. If you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to worry about.

Donna: Do you enjoy digging dirt up on people?

Marley: Donna, this really isn't --

Donna: Marley and I like our reputations very much.

Molly: Donna, back off, okay? Because I see exactly where this is headed.

Donna: Where?

Molly: You don't want to compromise. You just want to cut your losses. You saw that your past could affect you deeply in court, so you came here to try another way.

Bob: How you doing'?

Carly: Can -- can you see anything yet?

Bob: No. No, not yet. How's the pain, Carly?

Carly: It's gone.

John: Completely?

Carly: Uh-huh.

John: The painkiller I gave you wasn't that strong.

Bob: Can you describe how you feel?

Carly: I don't feel anything, actually. My face is numb.

Bob: Hold still now, Carly.

[Carly sighs]

Isaac: You want to know why I'm still in your glorified theme park? 'Cause I think you've been lying to this lady, and I wanted to tell her so.

Ian: And did you believe him?

Bonnie: No. No.

Ian: So what, specifically, have I misrepresented, may I ask?

Isaac: I told Bonnie that you're not marrying her for love. I told her that you had our friend, Billy, locked up because he was on to you. And I told her that you're the type of man who cares only for himself, and she would be out of her mind to split a sandwich with you, let alone a life. Is that specific enough for you or -- would you like to hear more?

Alison: Any idea where gorgeous went? I've done two laps around this place, and I still can't find him.

Lucy: He left.

Alison: Why? What did you do?

Lucy: Messed up.

Alison: How?

Lucy: I put him down for flirting with you. Only -- Abigail isn't his girlfriend. She's his half sister.

Alison: You mean he's available? Where did he go?

Lucy: I overheard Abigail say he was going to Java.

Alison: Perfect! How's my makeup? It's okay. I'll put some on fresh in the car.

Lucinda: Hey, sweetheart, we have a question, and you can answer it.

Lucy: Grandmother, I can't right now. I got to go.

Molly: You two almost had me fooled yet again. Well, you know what? You can bet this is the last time I believe anything out of either of you.

Donna: Molly, we have not lied to you.

Molly: This night belonged to Jake. And you both came in here, and you made it about your own selfish agenda.

Marley: We are concerned for Bridget and Michele --

Molly: No, you're not. You're concerned about hiding your little secrets.

Donna: We want to resolve this in a civilized manner. And we strongly believe that joint custody is the answer.

Molly: What you would like or what you believe is no longer of interest to me. After tonight, I have absolutely nothing to say to either of you!

Rosanna: Hi. I'm not sure what the easiest way to do this is, so I'm just going to say -- remember me?

Paul: Rosanna? Of course. Of course I -- this is my fiancée, Rose D’Angelo.

Rosanna: Oh, how do you do? I haven't had the pleasure. I'm Rosanna Cabot.

Rose: Oh, yeah. Carly’s sister. I heard about you showing up. Yeah.

Rosanna: Well, you know, Parker needed me. So I just felt it was the responsible thing to do.

Rose: Well, now that Carly's home, how long are you staying'?

Rosanna: Well, that depends. But I must admit -- it's good to be back.

Bob: Carly -- I'm about to remove the final layer of dressing.

Carly: Maybe we should stop.

Jack: No, no, no, no. You are going to be fine. Try not to be nervous, okay?

Carly: Oh, you're telling me you're not?

Jack: I'm telling you that you're as beautiful as ever to me.

Carly: Remember our deal, Jack. Don't look until everything is off, okay? Then you give me the verdict. I want to hear it from you.

Jack: All right. You got it.

Bob: Okay, Carly. I'm going to take the final dressing off.

Jack: Oh, Carly.
