Hal: Hey, guys! Oakdale PD hard at work.

Police officer: Welcome back, chief. You are back, right?

[Applause]

Hal: Yes. Yeah, I just came from the commissioner's office. And Hal Munson, chief of detectives, is officially back in business. Yes.

Barbara: I'm glad to hear that. You need to help me with this mess.

Hal: Oh, your visit with Will -- I'm sorry, it had to be rescheduled. This sock-over sleepover thing, it was spur of the moment.

Barbara: No, no, no. I'm not upset about that. It's -- it's --

Hal: What's the matter?

Barbara: I'm sorry. I know you just got back in here, but what's left of my life is a terrible mess. The Iris wants to shut down BRO, and I can't find Paul.

Hal: What do you mean, you can't find him?

Barbara: Paul and Rose left after their engagement party, and no one has heard from them since.

Hal: Barbara, come on, do you need a road map here? Their engagement party --

Barbara: Hal, they're not off on some kind of romantic junket. I know that they're not. I've left messages on his cell, messages with Lily. No one has returned the calls.

Hal: Just give them some time, Barbara.

Barbara: I don't have time. I can feel it in my bones. Paul is in trouble.

Simon: You've changed your mind about me going to find Rose and Paul?

Katie: Yeah.

Simon: Well, you could've spared me that meeting with Lucinda. Do you know how hard it is to say no to that woman?

Katie: Yeah, I know, but you did it -- for me, which is why I want you to go down to Avanya, if that's still what you want.

Simon: I don't know what I want. The last few months have been really rough, Katie. To run off now on another high-risk adventure, I --

Katie: Go, run, risk, please.

Simon: You don't mean that.

Katie: I don't want you staying here just because of me.

Simon: I'd be doing this for the both of us. I want to be here with you, sawing things, fixing things, rebuilding our life together. I do.

Katie: And I love you so much for saying that -- which is why I know I'm right. You do have to go.

Simon: Wow. If I could just get in your brain, just for a little bit, and walk around, I might understand how it works.

Katie: Hey, it's so obvious. You love traveling, you love taking chances, and you love helping people. If I deny you that part of yourself --

Simon: I'll feel suffocated? No. I've already told you that's not gonna happen. Baby, being married to you provides all the thrills that I need. So -- can I stay home?

Katie: No, I don't think so. See, I was so mad at Lily for even suggesting that you go down and help Rose that I went and talked to Margo about it. And you know what she said? That if I were in Rose's predicament, she would do anything to get me home. And for the first time, I actually felt what it was like to have a sister. And I can't let Lily lose hers.

Simon: You're sure about this?

Katie: I know there's something in you that needs to do this. But, ultimately, the decision is yours, Simon -- and yours alone.

Lucy: Why does one little dinner have to be such a big deal? My aunt is just trying to do something nice.

Aaron: I don't like people talking about me behind my back.

Lucy: It wasn't like that. She just wants to get to know you better.

Aaron: She wants to put me under a microscope so she can see if I'm good enough for her niece.

Lucy: She asked you for dinner, not a DNA sample. Would you get over yourself, Aaron? I'm just trying to help.

Aaron: Well, don't. Because this is not my GED we're talking about, Lucy. This is my life!

Lucy: And mine! I didn't go to aunt Margo just for you. I went for me, too. My dad's been all over my life, and -- forget it. Why would you care? You don't even want to be a part of my life anymore.

Aaron: Lucy, I want to keep seeing you.

Lucy: Then come to dinner with me.

Craig: Well, as much as I like the home court advantage, there is the matter of the teenage daughter who might come breezing in at any moment and cramp the romantic stylings.

Rosanna: Ah, right. Well, why don't we just go to my place then? It'll be nice and quiet, and there won't be any interruptions. Oh, I have some business I just remembered I have to take care of. Excuse me.

Craig: Really?

Rosanna: Yeah. It's nothing for you to worry your pretty little head about. But after that -- I'll be getting ready for you.

Craig: What will you do?

Rosanna: Well, perhaps I'll start by taking a long, hot shower. Perhaps you'd like to join me?

Craig: Perhaps we should let the steam build until -- the next knock you hear on your door will be mine.

Carly: Hi. Is Lisa around?

Bartender: She stepped out. Shouldn't be long. You wanna wait?

Craig: Say yes.

Simon: Yeah, now, I get it. I get it.

Katie: Get what?

Simon: I know why you're leaving this decision up to me. You're good. You're very good.

Katie: What are you talking about?

Simon: What am I -- this is one of those tests. I know one of these tests. It's like the "do I look fat in these jeans?" If I get that question wrong, I'm in husband hell.

Katie: No, I'm telling you, I swear, whether you stay or go, I am totally happy with either choice.

Simon: Well, let's make this decision together. Weigh up the pros and cons.

Katie: Okay. Whatever. Let's see. The pros for going -- Lily thinks Rose is in real danger.

Simon: And Lucinda agrees.

Katie: And she is in a very dangerous country, and I don't really like the fact of you risking your life.

Simon: Well, I'm not so crazy about it myself.

Katie: But you are quick on your feet.

Simon: I have pretty good instincts.

Katie: You know the international community.

Simon: Wow, you've really thought about this, haven't you?

Katie: Ah -- only nonstop since Lily came by.

Simon: And?

Katie: And I -- I know I'm gonna miss you like crazy. I can't even think about it. But I also know that if anything happened to Rose, we'd never be able to forgive ourselves.

Simon: You really are an incredible person, you know that?

Katie: Yeah, I know. It was your fault. Before you, I was so selfish. It was, Katie all the time. Katie, Katie, Katie. But not anymore.

Simon: So do you want to go call Lily up and tell her what a fine person you are?

Katie: Could you? This brave front I'm putting on -- it's for a limited time only.

Margo: Hi. I am gonna do you so proud. When it comes to the eating habits of the male teenager, I'm an expert. I've ordered a stack of ribs a mile high.

Lucy: Aaron's not coming.

Margo: Oh, he's not? Is he okay?

Lucy: Yes, he just didn't want to join us. I'm sorry. You went to all this trouble.

Margo: Oh, no, no, honey. I didn't go to any trouble. I never go to any trouble. I mean, the ribs are courtesy of Mabel's. And Tom and Casey are on their way getting 'em right now.

Lucy: Great. I feel better.

Margo: No, you don't. Look, Lucy, I would venture that the reason that Aaron turned down dinner tonight is because he probably felt he had no choice. Now this is just an educated guess, but I bet he was mad that you talked to me at all about him, right?

Lucy: How did you know?

Margo: Because I'm very smart. Welcome to my school. Sure, it looks just like a home, doesn't it? But the male/female ratio here is about 4-1 most often, about the same as in the squad room.

Lucy: Wow, you really do know a lot about guys. Do you think you could give me some tips?

Margo: I live for it. No. First rule -- rule number one, what you gotta remember is that men are nothing like us. I mean, we have a problem, we talk about it, it's done. Men -- they take it in, they brood, they go to their cave and look for a solution. And they have to do it all on their own. And if, God forbid, we should ask them if they need any help, then they think that we think that they can't sing for themselves.

Lucy: Well, I didn't mean for Aaron to think that.

Margo: No, no, of course you didn't. But Aaron doesn't know that. And, I'm telling you, that's what he's reacting to. It has nothing to do with you. Don't take it personally. Really, it's a guy thing.

Lucy: But tonight was so important to me.

Margo: I know it was, honey. But do you know -- you know the road less traveled? Well, I'm kinda thinking that that's the journey that Aaron is on. And he's just sort of lost right now. That's another thing. Guys never ask for direction.

Lucy: They don't?

Margo: No, never. They -- they think that they can do it all on their own, and it takes them a really long time to get to the right place. And then we realize that sometimes the guy isn't worth waiting for.

Lucy: Well, I know you don't know Aaron all that well, but from what I've told you, do you think he is?

Margo: That depends on whether or not he shows up tonight.

[Doorbell rings]

Lucy: He came.

Tom: Hey, my fault. I forgot my keys. Lucy, hey! Welcome to the rib crib.

Casey: Hey, where's motorcycle guy?

Lucy: Sorry, it's just me.

Margo: Aaron couldn't make it.

Casey: What could make someone say no to ribs?

Alison: I thought real men were careful with their tools.

Aaron: I'm not in the mood, Alison.

Alison: For what? Okay. If you want me to drop off the face of the earth, I don't blame you. I did some really stupid stuff.

Aaron: You spied on me and Lucy. You took pictures of us on my bike and sent it to her father. Stupid? It's pathetic.

Alison: I know it's not an excuse, but I was just jealous.

Aaron: Why?

Alison: Because, when I first met you, I picked up some vibes that you were interested, you know, in me.

Aaron: You thought what you wanted to think.

Alison: But then I realized that you and I weren't happening. And I was cool with that. It was Lucy that got to me. I mean, we were practically best friends, and then all of a sudden, she started to hang out with you all the time, and I was left out in the cold. I -- I could have a boyfriend any day of the week, but best friends -- best friends are harder to find.

Aaron: Well, maybe you should learn to treat them better. Some of the stuff you said about Lucy weren't too buddy-buddy.

Alison: I was just kidding, duh, so she'd lighten up. Everything's so serious with her sometimes that I just can't help, you know --

Aaron: Teasing her to see her reaction?

Alison: Yeah, but -- she's nice, you know? Like, she's cool to hang out with, but she also gets good grades. And she's had a lot of sad things happen to her, but she's not angry. Yeah, I tease her, but I don't want to lose her as a friend.

Aaron: I know what you mean.

Alison: Would you give her this for me?

Aaron: Alison, I'm not the one to give it to her. She's not gonna want me.

Alison: Well, maybe if you tell her that, when we talked, you could see that I meant it -- about being sorry. Please? I don't want to lose her as a friend. She deserves way better than she got from me.

[Knock at door]

Rosanna: Well, you missed the shower, but you're just in time for the oriental massage.

Holden: I guess I shoulda called first.

Rosanna: Yes, I think I was expecting someone else.

Holden: You might as well let me in, Rosanna. Because I'm not leaving -- not until I see Craig Montgomery.

Craig: Care to join me? Looks like a busy night. A girl like you'll be quite a target out here in the field. But at le Maison de Craig --

Carly: I'd be safe! I forgot, you're my fearless protector.

Craig: Oh, come on, a quick drink. Or are you scared of what might happen between us?

Craig: You look wonderful. Busy?

Carly: You have no idea.

Craig: Oh, I think I have some idea if what I saw the other day at the Police station is any indication of how you're spending your time with ol' Jacko.

Carly: Yeah, about that -- I'm sorry that you had to walk in on that. It was awkward.

Craig: Oh, yes, for all of us. But enough of that. Are you designing again? Freelancing or is it for some particular house?

Carly: It's for myself. Lisa and I are going into business together. How did you miss that scoop, Craig?

Craig: I don't know. I've had some distractions recently. But isn't Lisa a partner at B.R.O.?

Carly: She was. B.R.O. is gonna tank, Lisa wants to back a winner.

Craig: Congratulations to the most beautiful and resourceful capitalist I've ever seen.

Carly: Thank you. So this is nice, you know? Just talking about business like we used to.

Craig: Nice? Is that what you want? You want things to be nice between us?

Carly: Is there something wrong with that?

Craig: Yes, it's false. I don't want to just make nice, polite conversation with you, Carly, when what I want is to --

Carly: See, I knew -- I knew that I should have sat at the bar.

Craig: And done what? Pretend? Pretend I'm not here? Carly, I've tried -- I've tried pretending that seeing you with Jack didn't hurt. It doesn't work. It doesn't work.

Carly: Well, you have to get over it then, Craig. I have.

Craig: No, I will never get over it, Carly, because I love you and I want you in my life.

Casey: I'm sorry your friend couldn't make it. Maybe next time.

Margo: Would you -- would you take the garbage out to the curb now because it's pickup day tomorrow?

Tom: Yeah, as soon as I'm finished.

Margo: Please?

Tom: Sure.

Margo: You know what I remember most about being your age? Thinking that all the bad things were gonna last forever, but they don't. Everything changes -- even what you're feeling right now. In a little while, when you're feeling less bruised, you're gonna find some reason to go out to Emma's farm and -- oh, run into Aaron. And then I'm sure that the two of you will talk it all out.

Lucy: No, you were -- you were right, aunt Margo. He isn't worth waiting for. I should get going. Thanks for everything. It was really nice.

[Tom clears his throat]

Aaron: I'm sorry I'm late.

Lucy: It's okay.

Aaron: I was working on my bike. Took a while to clean -- clean it up.

Lucy: You look nice.

Aaron: So do you.

Margo: I'm glad you could make it, Aaron. Aaron?

[Phone rings]

Hal: Okay. We've tracked Paul and Rose to Avanya. Do you know where it is?

Barbara: Yes, as a matter of fact I do. And it's not a very safe place for Americans. What are they doing there?

Hal: Ever heard of Henry Coleman?

Barbara: That's a name from the past. He was that smarmy guy who ran the telethon?

Hal: Well, his name is all over Margo's report. Seems he was arrested on suspicion of trying to steal something from Rose. She bailed him out. And I don't know why.

Barbara: Well, all this makes me feel a little bit better. I think that Paul can handle Henry Coleman. The question is -- what's his involvement with all of this?

Hal: Well, I'll call Lucinda and Lily and see what information I can get. And as soon as I find something out, you'll be the first to know.

Barbara: Thank you.

Hal: Now, Barbara -- what is this about B.R.O. having to shut down?

Barbara: The government has frozen my assets, pending a tax audit. If there's a discrepancy and Paul can't be found, they're going to assume that one thing has to do with the other.

Hal: All right, one thing at a time. We're working on Paul. Now, have you contacted your company's legal division about this?

Barbara: If they'd been doing their job in the first place, I wouldn't be in this mess. I have fired them, and I put my own attorney on it.

Hal: Marshall Travers?

Barbara: Yes.

Barbara: Well, what does he think the chances are of saving the firm?

Barbara: Zero.

Hal: What?

Barbara: B.R.O. is going on the auction block.

Hal: Is that what you want?

Barbara: No, of course it isn't.

Hal: Well, then pick up the phone, Barbara. You have got to call your friends and ask for help.

Barbara: No. I'm not gonna do that. I'm not gonna drag people down with me. I'm not. I've already talked to Lisa, and I told her she has to pull out of her partnership with B.R.O.

Hal: If I had the money --

Barbara: I wouldn't take it. Rosanna Cabot even offered to become a partner, and I turned her down.

Hal: Are you serious?

Barbara: It's too late, Hal.

Hal: What do you mean "it's too late?" Barbara, Rosanna Cabot throws you a life preserver and you toss it back to her? Barbara -- since when did you get stupid?

Rosanna: What makes you think Craig is coming here?

Holden: Oh, I don't know. The negligee, the music, the candles, the champagne?

Rosanna: Okay. Ha ha. I'll tell him that you dropped by.

Holden: And I'm telling you that I'm not going anywhere, not until I find Craig.

Rosanna: Why are you doing this?

Holden: Just consider this a lucky break, Rosanna. A chance to cut your losses before you make a mistake that you are gonna regret for a very long time.

Rosanna: Isn't that interesting? I've barely laid eyes on you since I got back into town, and here you are, telling me what mistakes I'm making, and what's not a mistake.

Holden: Yeah, well, I don't have to be your best friend to tell you that Craig Montgomery is bad news. You sleep with him, you might as well curl up with a cobra.

Rosanna: Holden, Craig and I are consenting adults. And since we are, I don't see how what we do is any business of yours.

Holden: One of you is an adult.

Rosanna: Who doesn't need anybody telling her what to do. So, if you would please tell me whatever it is you want Craig to know, I'll be happy to tell him and then you can leave.

Holden: No, thanks. I'll just wait till Craig gets back.

Rosanna: Actually, Holden, no, I don't think you will.

Carly: I knew this was a bad idea.

Craig: Stop trying to run from me.

Carly: I'm not.

Craig: Yes, you are. You cannot escape this, Carly.

Carly: Watch me.

Craig: There is a pull between us.

Carly: That's called gravity, Craig. We are over -- like disco.

Craig: Disco was always over. You, I can dance to.

[Cell phone rings] it's your sister. You know why she's calling?

Carly: I don't care.

Craig: Liar. Right now she's waiting for me wearing something that wouldn't fill a shot glass, waiting for me to make love to her. Give me a reason not to.

Carly: I'm not going to tell you not to seduce my sister. She's everything you're looking for. She's rich and sophisticated, rich, beautiful -- rich -- did I mention she's rich?

Craig: Before I met you, that might have been interesting.

Carly: This conversation isn't helping either one of us, Craig.

Craig: I'm not here to make this easy for you, Carly. When you were missing, I never stopped trying to bring you home. Why should I stop now?

Carly: What do you want?

Craig: I want the real Carly. Look me in the eyes. Where is she? Where's the fire? Where's the woman who didn't give a damn about predictable and safe? I miss her. I miss our sparring, our lovemaking, everything we ever did. Everything we ever did was alive.

Carly: Then why are you seducing my sister?

Craig: Because she's as close to you as I'm going to get.

Holden: Look, it's one thing to have an affair with the guy. But to start sticking up for him --

Rosanna: This is ridiculous. I -- I know that denigrating Craig Montgomery is Oakdale's favorite pastime. But I also know that he happens to be a wonderful father.

Holden: This is beginning to sound worse than I thought. Please, do not tell me that you are in love with this guy.

Rosanna: No, don't be ridiculous. I'm simply defending him. I mean, I have a very nice evening planned, and nobody is going to ruin it, not even you.

Holden: Yeah? Well, do you really think this evening is even gonna happen, Rosanna? It seems like you got the champagne chilled, but where's the guy? And why was his cell phone turned off? Welcome to life with Craig, Rosanna. What you see is definitely not what you get.

Rosanna: Please connect me to java underground.

>> Bartender: Java underground.

>> Rosanna: Is Craig Montgomery still there?

>> Bartender: Yes --

he's sitting right here.

>> Rosanna: Alone?

>> Bartender: No way. Should I try to get his attention?

>> Rosanna: No. No. Don't bother, thank you.

>> Holden: Java underground? Thanks for the tip. Rosanna, you're wasting your time. Craig is going to get what he deserves. So stop protecting him.

>> Rosanna: I'm not going to protect him. I'm going to wipe the floor with him.

>> Casey: 120? Miles per hour? That's so cool. Hey, when I get my permit, will you let me drive your bike?

>> Aaron: Ah, my bike's been known to break down on occasions. So you might get stuck on a dirt road somewhere.

Casey: All right, I'll get a job and buy a brand new bike that never breaks down.

Aaron: Bikes are expensive, man. I mean, I know when I have parts to fix, they cost an arm and a leg. Then I got to borrow Lily and Holden's car, and -- it's a minivan.

Casey: Oh, dude.

Tom: So, let's go grab some ice cream. We'll take Margo's minivan.

[Margo laughs]

Aaron: Sorry.

Margo: Help me take out the rest of the garbage and you'll be forgiven.

Aaron: Sure.

Margo: Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for steering Casey off the motorcycle path.

Aaron: I'm sorry, I keep thinking of you as a cop --

Margo: Instead of a real person. Well, look, I'm a real person with a family. I'm a mom. I'm Lucy's aunt. Badge is off tonight. So, Aaron, I heard you had some trouble in Seattle. Want to tell me about it?

Aaron: I explained this to Lucy.

Margo: I know. But you do well to cover yo bases and explain it to me, too, because her father is so protective. And I just want to be able to tell him that he's got nothing to worry about.

Katie: Let me guess. Lily is so excited that you're going, that she can hardly stand it.

Simon: Well, she's more relieved than glad. She said to say thank you and promised that Holden would fix anything that breaks around here while I'm gone.

Katie: Oh, he can't fix my heart.

Simon: Katie, I thought you were okay with this.

Katie: I am. I am, really. I just -- it's not going to stop me from missing you.

Simon: I'm going to miss you, too.

Katie: So when do you leave?

Simon: Ah, well, actually, Lily heard from Paul. And he's run out of cash and needs help straight away. So I'm flying to Mexico in Lucinda's jet -- tonight.

Katie: Tonight?

Simon: I know it doesn't leave us much time, but --

Katie: Well, we probably shouldn't waste it then.

Tom: So how's it going?

Lucy: He's talking to her -- like really talking.

Tom: Oh, don't underestimate the talents of your aunt, she can get a confession out of the most unlikely people.

Aaron: So my dad pulled some strings and got me off easy -- at least that's what he says. I think about it every day. I still don't know why I did it. I didn't steal anything or mess up any property or mean to hurt anybody. It was just dumb -- beyond dumb.

Margo: You know what? You're young. You're just trying to figure out who you are. People do dumb things like that all the time.

Aaron: Yeah -- maybe.

Margo: You weren't going to come here tonight, were you? What changed your mind?

Aaron: I didn't want to disappoint Lucy.

Margo: Because --

Aaron: I like her, I guess.

Margo: Well, I guess that's good, 'cause she likes you, too.

Aaron: Cool.

Margo: Oh, look at this, they missed us.

Tom: No, actually, we got tired of waiting on you to get one measly bag of garbage down to the curb.

Margo: Hey, we're talking. We're having a nice talk, right?

Aaron: Yeah. Yeah. I gotta get going, though.

Lucy: So soon?

Aaron: Yeah, I didn't tell my grandma I was coming here. And so -- thank you so much for the invitation and everything.

Margo: Aaron, you are welcome here any time. You know that. And don't worry about anything.

Lucy: Did he just hug you?

Margo: Oh, yeah.

Tom: I think Aaron's got a new fan.

Lucy: So you think he's all right? You like him?

Margo: Oh, Lucy, in my professional opinion, I would venture that the trouble that Aaron got into was typical of any teenager. He just got confused about boundaries.

Lucy: That's it? Just your professional opinion?

Margo: My personal opinion -- he's cool. And he likes you.

Lucy: He told you he likes me?! Are you kidding?

Margo: I'm not kidding. Why would I -- why would I kid about something as important as that? And you know what? Don't worry. I'm going to talk to your dad, and you and Aaron don't have to worry about anything anymore, okay?

Lucy: Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Simon: Nothing is going to keep me away from you, ever.

Katie: And watch out for the bad guys.

Simon: I'm going to be badder.

Katie: And you'll be very, very, extremely careful.

Simon: And you're not going to worry. Baby, please, I need to know you're going to be okay with this.

Katie: I'm fine. I'm not going to worry. I totally trust you and your judgment.

Simon: Okay, that's nice. Now the truth.

Katie: Okay. I do trust you. But that doesn't mean I'm not going to worry about you every second of every day.

Simon: You have to promise me that you're not going to follow me. Okay? Because if I know you're tagging along, then I'm going to be anxious. If I'm anxious, I'm not going to be paying attention. And that could cost us both very dearly.

Katie: All right. I'll stay here, on one condition -- when you get back, will you stay

Simon: It's a deal.

Carly: I'm sorry, but I do not consider it impressive that you would sleep with my sister as some sort of consolation prize.

Craig: No, no, you misunderstand me --

Carly: No, I have never misunderstood you, Craig. That's the whole problem.

Craig: All right, well go ahead then, go back to Jack's arms and death by boredom.

Carly: Let me tell you something about Jack Snyder, he is a better man than you will ever be. And you can't stand that. That is what makes you so jealous.

Craig: I'm not jealous. I even like the lug. But your life with him will take place inside of some little box. And you and I -- have never been contained. What's the matter?

Carly: Nothing.

Craig: Why are you trembling?

Carly: I'm mad.

Craig: No, you're trembling because we're standing close and you can feel what's between us.

Carly: Why do you keep making me say it? I do not want you.

Craig: Yes, you do. Just say it.

Aaron: I thought I saw headlights behind me on the farm road.

Lucy: Then why didn't you slow down?

Aaron: Because if I went five miles an hour, I'd fall off my bike.

Lucy: I wasn't going five miles an hour.

Aaron: That's right. You saw a squirrel, then you dropped down to three.

Lucy: He was cute.

Aaron: I don't like the word "cute." It's like a word people use when they mean something else, like "beautiful."

Lucy: Hey, thanks for coming to dinner.

Aaron: Thanks for not making me feel like a jerk. I'm sorry about before. I was wrong about a lot of things. And it came clear to me when I saw Alison.

Lucy: Alison? Alison Stewart?

Aaron: Yeah. She -- she got this gift for you. She felt bad.

Lucy: Does it tick?

Aaron: No, she -- she's on the level, for once. She got me thinking -- about you.

Lucy: You and Alison were talking about me behind my back?

Aaron: Yeah, I mean, we were talking nice stuff about you, how fun you are, and how people treat you the way you should be treated. She's right.

Lucy: My aunt Margo said some nice things about you, too.

Aaron: Yeah?

Lucy: She's going to talk to my dad, tell him you're okay.

Aaron: Whoa -- a cop who likes me. This town is definitely different. It's 'cause of you. I've never had anybody stick up for me like you did.

Lucy: No problem.

Aaron: It's getting late.

Lucy: I should go.

Aaron: Yeah.

Lucy: Good night.

Aaron: Later.

Simon: You sure you don't want to stay at the Lakeview while I'm gone?

Katie: No, no. This is our home. I wanna stay here.

Simon: And you're going to be all right here? Alone? In the woods?

Katie: Are you kidding? I have Snickers, the attack rabbit.

Katie: You'll call me as soon as you get there.

Simon: I'm going to call you sooner than that. Don't be lonely, all right? Go into town, hang out with people.

[Horn beeps] I've gotta go.

Simon: I love you so much, Katie Frazier.

Katie: I love you so much, Simon Frazier.

Hal: I still don't see how turning down Rosanna's offer is going to help you?

Barbara: Marshall says that appearances count for everything right now. And if I go into business with the sister of one of my victims, what is that going to look like, especially when these two sisters apparently hate each other.

Hal: This is not about appearances. This is about survival.

Barbara: I know that more than anyone. But Marshall says I cannot afford

Hal: Forget about what your hotshot attorney says. What do you think?

Hal: Well, good. Then call in the reinforcements, Barbara, because you have a battle on your hands.

Hal: Yes, you do. And her name is Rosanna Cabot. Call her, Barbara, tell her you'll take the money.

Carly: How dare you?
