Lucy: What's this? These aren't yours, are they?

Aaron: No, of course not.

Lucy: Well, they're not Emma's. And they're not Uncle Holden's. Some workman must've left them here. Wait a minute. Do you know who smokes these? Alison.

Aaron: I thought she quit.

Lucy: Yeah, but she still carries them around with her. She wasn't here with you, was she?

Aaron: No.

Lucy: It's okay. You can tell me. I don't care.

Aaron: No, I told you the truth. They weren't there this morning, 'cause I cleaned up the barn. I would've seen them.

Lucy: She wouldn't. That would be so --

Aaron: Like her.

Lucy: She's my friend. And yours, too. She wouldn't hide and spy on us. Would she?

[Craig sighs]

Katie: How's it going?

Simon: Who could -- this one? It'll have to be replaced altogether.

Katie: Well, do me a favor, will ya?

Simon: I'll do you anything.

Katie: Make sure your pants are on when you go to the lumberyard.

Simon: Was that really us last night? Running stark naked through the woods?

Katie: I do believe that was us, and I do believe I quite liked it. In fact, I loved it. I don't know why we don't do that more often. In fact --

Simon: Ah! Whoa -- what are you doing?

Katie: I see no reason to be wearing clothes at all at the moment.

Simon: No, no, no, no. You can't be naked -- you can't be naked right now.

Katie: Why? Is there something wrong with my body?

Simon: No, no, no. Everything's right with your body. But if you get naked, then I have to get naked. Then we're gonna hit the floor. We're gonna do something. And -- [cell phone rings] saved by the bell.

Katie: No, no, no, no! No, not now. Ah, party pooper.

Simon: Hello? Yeah, Margo. What's up? Yeah, sure. We'll be down there right away. That was Margo. She wants us down at the Police station.

Katie: Why?

Simon: I don't know. But the word "urgent" was mentioned quite a few times. So let's go. No nudity today.

Rosanna: Molly, why don't you come up with me to my suite? And we'll talk.

Molly: Go up there with you and Barbara? So what? So you can wrap me in a coffin and ship me off to some spa? No, I don't think so.

Rosanna: How about we sit down, and I'll order some coffee and some sandwiches, yes?

Molly: Because I'm not hungry!

[Dishes clattering] how about you sit down, Rosanna?

Rosanna: Wait a minute.

Molly: All right, and you write me out a little promissory note saying, "I, Rosanna Cabot, will leave my sister Carly alone or else." What are you waiting for, Rosanna? You think I'm joking?

Rosanna: I think you might be a little out of your mind.

Molly: Say it, Rosanna! Say it!

Rosanna: Ow! Get off of me!

Molly: No! Not until you promise me that you're not gonna hurt Carly!

Barbara: We're not trying to hurt Carly!

[Shouting over each other]

Molly: You're worse than she is!

Bartender: Easy now.

Molly: You let go of me, buddy, or you're gonna be next!

Rosanna: Okay, okay, wait a minute. Let's all calm down. We understand that you're in a lot of grief right now and you just lost your husband. But you are out of control, and I think you just need to go home.

Molly: Not yet. Not until I teach you a major lesson!

Jack: All right, all right. Ladies, hey, hey. Ladies, let's break it up, all right? Detective Jack Snyder, Oakdale PD.

Carly: Molly --

Bartender: She's all yours.

Carly: What happened?!

Rosanna: She got drunk and attacked us --

Carly: I'm not asking you!

Molly: You hear that? She's talking to me, not you. I got drunk and I attacked them. And I'm not finished --

Carly: Oh, Molly!

Jack: Easy, Sugar Ray. I don't want you hurting anybody.

Barbara: She wouldn't listen to reason, Jack.

Molly: What, I'm supposed to listen to that, after what --

Jack: Molly, Molly, you'll get your turn. I want to hear Barbara's version. The broad strokes, please.

Barbara: Okay. Rosanna and I were sitting. We were having drinks. We were having a conversation. Obviously, Molly overheard what we were saying, felt we were kind of concocting some plot against Carly, and Molly came over and started attacking Rosanna.

Molly: I know exactly what I heard. These cows are out to get you, Carly. They want to destroy your company before you even get it started.

Simon: Margo, what's up? We got here as soon as we could.

Margo: Ah, yeah. I'll be with you in a second.

Katie: It's about Dahlia, isn't it? She escaped the Sacramento Police, and she's coming back to get us.

Margo: No, this has nothing to do with Dahlia. It's about the two of you. Where were the both of you last night about 11:00?

Simon: Home.

Katie: Right.

Simon: Mm-hmm, yeah, home.

Katie: Yeah.

Simon: Yeah.

Margo: Home? Inside, with the doors closed?

Simon: Yeah.

Katie: Absolutely. Off and on.

Simon: Yeah.

Katie: Yes.

Simon: Yeah, well, it was a nice evening. So we might have gone out for a few minutes to get a breath of fresh air, go for a little walk.

Katie: Well, it was more of a run, actually.

Margo: A run. And was this run with or without your panties?

Simon: Margo, behave.

Katie: Oh, Margo, we are not exactly in the habit of running around naked.

Simon: Exactly. It hasn't become a habit. Not yet, anyway.

Katie: He's kidding.

Margo: Yeah. 'Cause, see, we got a complaint that there were a couple of streakers in the woods last night, and some boys were camping out.

Simon: Well --

Katie: I'm sure it was a couple of high schoolers just celebrating summer vacation.

Margo: Yeah. Don't move. Could you come out here a second, please? Come on. It's okay. All the way out. All the way out. Come on. Good. Warren Styles -- are these the two people you saw in the woods last night, Warren?

Lucy: This is crazy. Alison wouldn't be spying on us.

Aaron: Some people get off on stuff like that.

Lucy: We weren't doing anything that she would wanna watch. Although -- no. She wouldn't.

Aaron: What?

Lucy: Promise you won't think I'm a terrible person?

Aaron: I'll give it a shot.

Lucy: I sort of told Alison about the helmet you bought me and that my dad didn't want me riding the motorcycle anymore. Maybe she was checking to see if I was obeying him.

Aaron: Well, if you can believe that for a second, then maybe you shouldn't be hanging out with her.

Lucy: No, Alison's my friend. I should trust her.

Aaron: But you don't.

Lucy: I know Alison can be a little -- unreliable. And different from me at times. But when I told her about you and me -- I mean, that we've become friends and that we were hanging out more -- she was totally okay with it.

Aaron: All right. Then explain the smokes.

Lucy: I can't.

Aaron: She was here, Lucy. Hiding and watching us. And she had a reason, and I think you deserve to know what it is.

[Cell phone ringing]

Lucy: That's me. Hello?

Craig: Hi, it's dad. Where are you?

Lucy: I'm at the Snyder farm, helping Aaron study. Why?

Craig: I want you to come home. There's something we have to discuss.

Lucy: Okay. Can you give me an hour?

Craig: No. I'm sending a car for you. Wait by the gate.

Lucy: Dad, you sound serious. What's this about?

Craig: I'll explain when you get here.

Lucy: Okay. I'm on my way. That was my dad. He wants me to come home right away. He's sending a car.

Aaron: Is everything cool?

Lucy: He didn't sound like it.

Aaron: I can go with you, if you want.

Lucy: Thanks. But it's probably just some family stuff. I should handle it alone. I'm sorry our time got cut short here, Aaron. I was really having a good time.

Aaron: Me, too.

Lucy: See ya.

Alison: Hey! What're you doing here?

Emily: Hi. I was having a cup of coffee. What else?

Alison: By yourself?

Emily: No, actually, I was with mom.

Alison: Oh. You two aren't gonna make a habit of that, are you?

Emily: What?

Alison: Coming here. You see, this is kind of where I hang out and --

Emily: Oh. Oh, having your mom and your sister hanging out in the same place would be a real drag.

Alison: Big time.

Emily: Yeah. No, no. There are plenty of places we can have coffee. Don't worry about it.

Alison: Great. Thanks. So how come you and mom are getting so chummy?

Emily: She is my mom. I mean, we have certain things in common, you know.

Alison: Oh, yeah. Neither one of you guys can stand me.

Emily: Why would you say that? We love you very much.

Alison: Will you at least be honest about it? The three of us have been fighting our entire lives.

Emily: I know, but -- it doesn't have to be that way. You know, if we -- if we just started to make an effort, you know?

Alison: Well, wait a minute! Are you saying it's my fault we don't get along?

Emily: No. No.

Alison: This is so typical of you, Emily.

Emily: I'm not saying that. What I'm trying to say is that if -- I'm just suggesting that --

Alison: Will you save it? Will you just save it? You know, getting kidnapped doesn't give you the right to get all freaky on me.

Emily: I'm not gonna let you push me away. I know what you're going through, Alison, because I've been there myself.

Alison: Oh. Right. The "when I was your age" routine. Well, can't you at least come up with something original?

Emily: What I'm trying to tell you is that I recognize myself in you. I know what it's like to feel out of place and ignored. I know what it's like to hide your emotions under this tough facade. Believe me when I tell you I know that awful sense of loneliness and desperation. And I don't want you to have to suffer through that.

Carly: Is Molly right? Were you hatching some plan against me with that -- with that?

Barbara: Carly, I wouldn't do anything to hurt you --

Carly: Oh, you mean other than having me kidnapped and tortured? What's next, Barbara? You gonna have me deboned and deep-fried?

Rosanna: Look, you have this all wrong. Barbara and I were discussing our own business. That's it. It had nothing to do with you.

Molly: Oh, that's right. It was just about B.R.O. and about how Rosanna wants to help Barbara save it.

Carly: Sneaky rat.

Rosanna: I believe I made you the same offer. You turned me down. I simply took my business elsewhere.

Carly: Throwing in with Barbara is the last thing you need. You just wanna try and teach me a lesson.

Molly: That's right. You should have heard these two. Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz. Like two little spies on a secret mission.

Barbara: Would someone please take her home?

Molly: Hello! I'll go home when I'm darn ready, bar --

Jack: Why don't you take Molly to another table? I don't want her attacking them again, okay?

Carly: All right. I don't know about you, but the air around here is getting a little thick.

Molly: Yes, it is. And my table is right this way.

Rosanna: I had no idea Molly had such a problem with alcohol.

Molly: All I wanted to do was to spend a little time with Jake. Huh? Is it such a crime to just wanna have a couple drinks with my own husband?

Carly: Molly, you okay? Come on. Why don't I take you home? Okay? Let's get you --

Molly: Don't touch that.

Carly: Okay. Hey. All right, I'll see you back at home, okay?

Jack: You be careful.

Carly: Yeah.

Barbara: Carly -- this was all a misunderstanding. You have nothing to fear from me.

Carly: Barbara, as long as you are alive, I will have something to fear from you. And you -- you're getting very good at sinking to my expectations.

Rosanna: Go with them, Jack. You don't have to stay with us.

Jack: I'm here for Police business. I need to file a report. So let's start with the easy one, shall we? Do either of you want to press charges against Molly for assault?

Craig: "What is this?" Who am I trying to kid? "Lucy, I'm sure there's an explanation for this. I'm open to hearing it." Hi, sweetness. How's Aaron doing with his GED?

Lucy: He's gonna ace it, dad. He's even smarter than I thought.

Craig: Yeah, well, with you as his tutor, they'll probably end up naming the test after him.

Lucy: Is this what you wanted me to come straight home for? To talk about Aaron's test?

Craig: No. No, come here. Sit down. I -- some information came into my possession today -- Lucy, you know how much I love you --

Lucy: Dad, whatever it is, you can tell me.

Craig: This.

Lucy: Where did you get this?

Craig: It's not important. I told you to stay off that bike.

Lucy: We didn't go on the road, and I was wearing my helmet --

Craig: It doesn't matter!

[Craig sighs] Lucy, look -- I know I cannot control everything you do. And there are things that, if you don't wanna tell me, that's okay. Because I trust you, and I respect you. But if you betray that trust and respect, we're gonna have to do something else.

Lucy: Like what? Lock me in my room and throw away the key?

Craig: Don't tempt me.

Lucy: Well, so much for trust and respect.

Alison: Well, I'm sorry if I'm such a major disappointment to you. But if it bothers you so much, maybe we shouldn't see each other again.

Emily: Sit down right now.

Alison: Will you chill, please? What has gotten into you?

Emily: I want you to realize how serious this is.

Alison: It's not like I'm some criminal mastermind. What's the big deal?

Emily: Alison, you got kicked out of one school. You're not doing so good in your new one. I mean, this is a pattern -- a dangerous pattern.

Alison: So I'm not a great student. Neither was Julia Roberts, but she did okay.

Emily: I'm not just taking about school. You're irresponsible. With everything you do, you're always looking for the easy way out.

Alison: Oh. Oh, and you're perfect, right? Well, let me --

Emily: I'm not saying I'm --

Alison: This conversation is over. It's not gonna mess me up. Aaron. Hi.

Aaron: Hey.

Alison: My sister Emily. Aaron Snyder.

Emily: Hi.

Alison: Do you wanna sit down? Emily was just about to leave.

Aaron: No, thanks. I came by to return something that belonged to you. You left them at the barn.

Carly: I don't want you to worry about Rosanna. I'm not. But I'll tell you what I am concerned about -- you. You said you were "having drinks with your husband"?

Molly: I'm not crazy, Carly. Okay, I know that he's dead. It's just -- I've been feeling so helpless about the whole situation that I just -- I don't know what to do. I just feel like -- raising my fist to the whole damn, miserable thing.

Carly: By pretending he's there?

Molly: He was there. He was there. This -- this was delivered today, Carly.

Carly: Is -- is that --

Molly: Human remains. "Human remains." It just doesn't make any sense to me. Because Jake is gone, and I'm the one who remains. And tonight -- tonight, I just -- I don't want to be left behind anymore.

Barbara: Rosanna, you can't press charges. Molly thought that she was protecting Carly.

Jack: Yeah, Molly's been through a pretty rough time. She doesn't need to be arrested on top of it.

Rosanna: Do you honestly think I would press charges against a woman that just lost her husband? What kind of person do you think I am?

Jack: Well, I have to ask the question.

Rosanna: Well, the answer is no. Molly has obviously suffered enough. I'm not gonna add to her grief.

Barbara: That's very fair of you.

Rosanna: Well, I would assume you'd do the same. There is something I need from you, Jack.

Jack: All right.

Rosanna: I want it noted in your report that I did not provoke Molly in any way. I want it made clear that she attacked me and that I let her off the hook.

Jack: I have no problem with that. Why is that so important to you?

Rosanna: Because it would be just like Carly to convince Molly that she was the injured party. And I want to be protected, in case they try to come after me in any way.

Jack: Carly does not want to start a war with you, Rosanna. The only reason she was here was to make sure that Molly was safe.

Rosanna: Well, of course you would say that. You're in love with her. But I happen to know what Carly is capable of. She has gone to great lengths to destroy me in the past, and I fully expect her to try it again. Only this time, I'm going to be ready for her.

Margo: It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. No one's gonna get mad at you. Nothing bad's gonna happen. Just tell me -- are these the two people you saw running nude in the woods last night?

Warren: Well, could she -- you know.

Simon: What, take her clothes off? Oh, yeah. Nice try, kid.

Margo: Why don't you do the best you can with their clothes on?

Simon: Hey, hey.

Warren: Yeah, that's them.

Katie: Snitch.

Margo: Quiet. You did a good job. Very good job. Good deed today. Thank you. You can go now.

Warren: Uh, can I tell her where our next campout will be?

Margo: Go.

Warren: Do you have a website?

Margo: Now!

Simon: Get outta here.

Margo: Go.

[Katie laughing]

Margo: All right. You wanna make a statement?

Simon: Yeah. She looks great naked.

Katie: Okay, we got a little frisky. We didn't know there would be a bunch of kids camping out near our house.

Simon: Margo, you know what the last few months has been like for us. All we've been doing is escaping Dahlia's lies. So when she got caught and taken away, it was like we got out of jail. Okay, so we got carried away a bit, you know?

Katie: Running around like that was kind of like our very own declaration of independence.

Simon: And I dared you to do it.

Katie: And you didn't think I would. But I did.

Margo: Please, please, please. That's enough. All right, fine. Look -- in the last couple of months, yes, you guys have been handed death threats and bomb threats. And you've had elevators falling and bodies falling. And you've survived it all beautifully. You really have. But now I think it's time you ask yourselves -- do you wanna spend the rest of your life, maybe the next 50 years, indulging in goofy stunts? Or maybe you wanna grow up a little bit and do something useful with your lives?

[Jack chuckles]

Jack: Carly has no interest in ruining your life, Rosanna. Maybe if you understood that about her, you two would finally get along with each other.

Rosanna: What are you saying? Are you saying that all of our problems are my fault?

Jack: No, I am not saying which sister is to blame. But if you wanna be a part of Carly's life, you'd find another way to do it!

Rosanna: What do you think, Barbara? Should I consider the source or listen to it?

Barbara: I would prefer not to be a part of this.

Jack: Oh, well, it's a little late for that, Barbara, if you're talking about going into business with Carly's sister. With the charges you're facing, I'd think you'd be a little more careful.

Barbara: I have the right to investigate any opportunities to save my company, Jack.

Jack: Fine. Whatever you say. Is there anything you'd like to add to your statements?

Rosanna: Not me.

Barbara: I'm just glad the unpleasantness is over.

Jack: Be careful, Barbara. You're all out of second chances.

Barbara: Jack thinks I am plotting against Carly.

Rosanna: Well, there's nothing that we can really do about that now. Listen, I -- I understand your reluctance to accept my offer. But please don't reject it out of hand. If you need time to consider it, we could talk next week, really.

Barbara: No. I don't need any more time. I have an answer for you. And it's no.

Rosanna: Well, you seem a little angry with me. I thought we understood each other.

Barbara: Up to a point. But I'm not about to sell out to the first opportunist who makes an offer.

Molly: I don't want a pep talk right now, cuz. I just don't. I just -- I really wanna feel the way I feel.

Carly: And that's all you can do. Nobody expects anything else, Molly.

Molly: They do! They do. They may not say it, but they do. They -- everyone just wants me to just get over it. But you know what I really wish? I really wish that everybody would just leave me alone and let me suffer by myself.

Carly: Even me?

Molly: There's only one person that I want right now, Carly. And that's Jake.

Carly: Oh, Molly. Oh, honey. It's all right. Crying is good.

Molly: I just -- I'm sorry. Okay, I'm a wreck.

Carly: Getting tanked for lunch probably didn't help matters.

Molly: Yeah, I know. But his ashes were just delivered to me today. Okay? And he's been appearing to me again. Usually after a couple of cocktails. And we have these conversations, and he's the same guy. He's funny and smart. And full of love and hope.

Carly: And what do you talk about?

Molly: Everything. He never was the type to want to go to bed without ironing out every single problem of the day. And so we would lay there in the dark, and we'd hold hands and touch feet. And -- once everything was okay, then we'd kiss and go to sleep. And it's kinda still like that. You know? Except that we don't -- we can't touch anymore.

Carly: Oh, Molly.

Molly: I never expected this to happen. I didn't. You know? I didn't expect to ever see him again after he died.

Carly: Well, you know, you said that Jake could never rest until everything was ironed out. Maybe that's what's going on now. Maybe he has some questions, Molly. And he's waiting for you to answer them.

Craig: Trust and respect have all sorts of meanings, Lucy. If there is one that works for you, I want to hear it.

Lucy: Okay. How about trust means letting me make my own decisions about what's safe?

Craig: Oh, no.

[Craig chuckles] no, I can't do that.

Lucy: Why not?

Craig: Because --

[Craig sighs] I already lost one child. I'm not gonna lose another.

Lucy: I'm not Bryant, daddy. And I don't think it's fair of you to use him like that.

Craig: To use him? I can't get in a car without remembering that Bryant died because he didn't use his seat belt. I mourn him every night. I mourn him every day.

Lucy: So do I! But I'm not gonna hide from the world because of him.

Craig: Well, nobody's expecting you to do that. I just expect you to act according to a certain set of rules for your own personal safety. All right?

Lucy: Well, I don't like it. And it's not what I expected, either.

Craig: Well, what did you expect?

Lucy: For you to be more laid back. Let things slide, not like -- you know.

Craig: Not like your mother and the Montegan army?

Lucy: Yeah.

Craig: Well -- all right, yes. Your mother and I are different. But we both love you, and that means --

Lucy: -- Setting unfair rules that make me feel like a baby?

Craig: Are you getting all this stuff from Aaron? Because if you are, that is the last you are ever gonna see of him.

Lucy: You can't do that!

Craig: Yes, I can! If you continue to refuse to listen to reason? You bet.

Lucy: So, what? You're just gonna threaten me until I do what you say?

Craig: Lucy, I -- I've never heard you talk like this.

Lucy: I'm just saying what's on my mind. Maybe you're not used to that. But while I'm at it, I might as well tell you -- I enjoyed riding on that motorcycle. And you know what else? I enjoy being with Aaron, too.

Alison: What makes you think those are mine? Don't you remember? I -- I quit.

Aaron: Yeah. I thought that's what you said.

Alison: Okay. Maybe I have a puff once in awhile. But I didn't leave those in your barn.

Aaron: Isn't that your brand?

Alison: Well, mine and a lot of other people's. Why don't you sit down? Maybe there's something else we can talk about besides cigarettes.

Aaron: No, I gotta go. And the next time you stop by the barn, can you make sure and say "hello"?

Emily: You are so not keeping those cigarettes.

Alison: Sorry, but I have a lot of other things to deal with besides cigarettes.

Emily: Does mom know you smoke?

Alison: Well, she didn't hear from me.

Emily: Of course she doesn't know. Do you have any idea what smoking can do to your lungs?

Alison: I don't do it for real. I'm just fooling around.

Emily: Oh, just fooling? Well, let me tell you something. That's how it begins. Then you start inhaling. And next thing you know, you're addicted.

Alison: What is this, Health 101?

Emily: No, it's someone who cares about you, who's trying to get through to you.

Alison: Okay, I heard you. Now go ruin someone else's day.

Emily: I'm sorry, but I don't back off that easily. Now you look at me in the eye and promise me you're never gonna smoke again. Or I'm gonna tell mom.

Alison: Oh, you're gonna tell mommy on me? Ooh, you're such a meanie.

Emily: I am so glad you think this is so funny. Because it's the last laugh you'll be having for a very long time.

Alison: What's that supposed to mean?

Emily: You smoke, I'll bust you. You skip school, I'm gonna turn you in. You do whatever it is that Aaron thinks you did, I'm gonna get you for that, too. The party's over, Alison. From here on in, you're answering to me.

Molly: It's certainly possible that Jake has unfinished business. But -- and for the life of me, Carly, there's way that I could -- I don't know what that could be.

Carly: Maybe he's trying to lead you somewhere.

Molly: You mean like, to a location for us to meet?

Carly: No, Molly. I mean like, to your future.

Molly: Do you know -- do you know what an incredible friend you are?

Carly: What did I do?

Molly: It's what you didn't do. You know, here we are, two reasonably sane women, talking about my dead husband, me seeing him. And never once, not for one single second have you even hinted that I might be losing it.

Carly: You say you see Jake. It's enough for me.

Molly: Thank you. Thank you. Oh, God, I'm wiped out. Come on. Can we please do this another time?

Carly: Oh, yes. Yeah. Any time you want. Should I make you a sandwich or something?

Molly: No. No, I really think that you should go home and relax, okay? Because I haven't forgotten that you've got stuff, too, to recuperate from.

Carly: Okay. But you will call me if you need anything?

Molly: I'm gonna call you even if I don't need anything.

Carly: Good. And no more liquid lunches, please.

Molly: You know, just because I got myself crocked, doesn't mean that Barbara and Rosanna aren't plotting against you.

Carly: Ah. Don't you worry about them. In fact, I think I'll go and have a chat with Rosanna right now.

Molly: Hang tough.

Carly: Okay, tiger.

Molly: Jake, where are you? And how in the hell am I supposed to stop needing you?

Katie: To us, last night was a celebration of what we've been through, what we survived, of each other, of our future, without Dahlia. And I know it sounds stupid, but before we could go on, we needed to feel totally free.

Margo: I can't take this anymore. I just can't.

Simon: Margo -- Margo, what's the matter? Come on.

Margo: "What's the matter?" Hal isn't back full-time yet. I've got a caseload up to here. I've got this thing going on down in Avanya, and now my sister is trying to convince me that streaking is the path to world peace.

Simon: Whoa, whoa, wait a second. You said Avanya?

Margo: Yeah. You know Avanya?

Simon: Yeah. Yeah, I do. Very repressive, right?

Margo: Yes. However, it didn't stop Rose and Paul from heading down there with Henry Coleman.

Katie: Why would they do that?

Margo: As far as I can tell, Rose's father is in some sort of trouble, some intrigue to do with a diamond. Look, I can't even explain it, let alone solve it.

Katie: Hold on a second. Do you mean our diamond? The one I found on the island?

Simon: The one you lost on the island.

Margo: Next time I find that diamond, I'm gonna donate it to charity.

Simon: Well, how's Lily? Lily must be worried sick.

Margo: Of course she is. She just found Rose, and now she's disappeared again.

Simon: Maybe we should go down and see her, see how she's doing.

Margo: That's a great idea. Or yet, you could stay here and help me solve this case.

Craig: All I'm asking is that the next time you have an impulse to get on a motorcycle -- any motorcycle -- you remember this conversation.

Lucy: Isn't that just another way of saying --

Craig: No, it's not a threat. It is what I believe. All right? And that is about as laid back as I can be about my beautiful baby girl.

Lucy: Fine. You win.

Craig: Oh, Luc -- Lucy, we all win this way, lullaby. Huh? Come on. I'm not gonna bring it up again.

Lucy: You know I hate arguing with you, daddy.

Craig: I don't know. You're getting pretty good at it. And looks like dealing with me is not your only problem.

Lucy: What else is there?

Craig: Well, because somebody slipped this underneath my door. And obviously that somebody wants to hurt you, and I think you better find out who that is.

Lucy: I already know who it is.

Craig: You do?

Lucy: It's Alison Stewart.

Craig: What are you going to do about it?

Lucy: Ask her why -- face-to-face. Right now.

Craig: Well, that is the right thing to do. Good luck.

Lucy: Thanks, daddy. I love you.

Craig: I love you, too, baby. Don't let her get away with anything.

[Knock on door]

Rosanna: Hi. You busy?

Craig: For you, my neighborly friend, I always have time. Drink, chocolate? What's your pleasure?

Rosanna: How 'bout a sympathetic ear.

Craig: Lucky for you I have two.

Rosanna: I made that offer to Barbara Ryan.

Craig: You offered to bail out her company?

Rosanna: Yeah.

Craig: How'd that go?

Rosanna: Poorly. Molly McKinnon overheard us and attacked me, physically, in the Lakeview lounge. Carly and Jack showed up, Jack read me the riot act. Barbara not only turned me down, but insulted me in the process.

Craig: Tough afternoon. But as I recall --

Rosanna: Yeah, I know. You told me not to -- not to talk to Barbara. I'd appreciate you not throwing that in my face right now.

Craig: Did she say something awful as usual?

Rosanna: She called me an opportunist. Made it sound like the worst thing in the world.

Craig: Well, there are worse things than that.

[Craig laughs]

Rosanna: Well, thanks. Wow, thank you! I guess I should just forget about it, huh?

Craig: Well, or get used to it, because, let's face it, that's what you are.

Emily: What am I going to do with you?

Alison: You know, I liked it a lot better when you had nothing to do with me.

Emily: Well, I'm sorry, I can't do that anymore.

Alison: And why not?

Emily: Because I know what it's like when people give up on you. It can ruin your life, Alison. I'm not going to let that happen to you.

Alison: Lucy Montgomery just walked in. Are we done, or do you wanna get all moral on her, too?

Lucy: Would you mind explaining this?

Alison: You and Aaron on his bike. Nice shot.

Lucy: Any idea who took it?

Alison: No.

Lucy: I think it was you.

Alison: Excuse me?

Lucy: I think you were spying on Aaron, you took this picture and made sure my dad got a good look at it. And I want to know why.

Katie: Simon's days of police work are over. He no longer has any interest in putting his life in danger. Isn't that right, honey?

Simon: Yeah, but -- yes, darling, that is completely right. But I would like to know a little bit more.

Katie: Simon --

Margo: Well, Lucinda, of course, wanted to race down and get Rose and Paul, but I convinced her that we had to go through the proper channels. But the problem is, the authorities in Avanya aren't cooperating.

Simon: So you need someone who can slip in under the radar and get the job done, right?

Katie: Yes, she does. And good luck finding that individual.

Margo: Okay, I'm sorry. It's my problem. I shouldn't have brought it up. I'm sorry. I'm sorry I came down so hard on you two earlier, really. You are so special to me.

Katie: Thanks. Same here.

Margo: Well, I gotta get back to work.

Katie: Let's go.

Simon: She's gonna have trouble finding someone, Katie. The wrong person's only gonna make everything a whole lot worse as well.

Katie: Yeah, well, that may be true, but you are not going to some crazy country where the whole government's gonna be gunning for you, and God knows what else.

Simon: Of course I'm not. Of course I'm not. This whole thing with Dahlia has given me enough danger to last me a whole lifetime. I promise.

Katie: Do you mean it? Oh, good. I was hoping you would say that.

Rosanna: You know, I came here for a little understanding, perhaps a little sympathy. I won't make that mistake again.

Craig: Listen, being called an opportunist is not an insult.

Rosanna: Oh, no?

Craig: No. If Paul Revere hadn't been an opportunist, we'd all have English accents. You know, opportunity doesn't come knocking. You gotta go looking for it.

Rosanna: Well, when you put it that way -- I guess I don't have to apologize to anyone.

Craig: Except to me.

Rosanna: Oh, really? And why's that?

Craig: For wasting time. But lucky for you, I'm a forgiving man.

Rosanna: Lucky for you, I'm still interested.

[Knock at door] oh.

Craig: Ignore it.

Rosanna: Oh.

Carly: Rosanna? Are you in there?

Rosanna: How does she always do this?

Craig: Make it quick.

Rosanna: Okay.

[Knocking continues]

Carly: You weren't in your suite, so I figured you slithered down here.

Rosanna: Yes, Craig and I were discussing business. How is Molly?

Carly: Don't pretend to care about Molly, Rosanna. We're way past that.

Rosanna: Okay. What do you want?

Carly: I came here to tell you in person that I want you to back Barbara Ryan with every penny you've got. Because when I bury B.R.O. -- and I will -- I want you to go down with it.
