Isaac: Where are you now? Walking those beautiful legs towards the door? So you're, what, 20 yards away? 19. 18. 17. I give you ten seconds. Those magical fingers almost at the door? Okay. Five, four, three, two -- one.

Bonnie: What a rush. Listening to you describe every little thing I was doing, it's like you were standing right next to me, guiding me. Coaxing me.

Isaac: Just like when --

Bonnie: Yeah, just like that.

Isaac: Yeah.

Bonnie: It was the most incredible feeling. I literally almost nailed the stoplight at the corner.

Isaac: Don't tell me you're driving with your hands on the phone.

Bonnie: No, no. Hands are free. But, phone or no phone, you are a very, very dangerous man, Mr. Jenkins.

Isaac: Who, me?

Bonnie: And after last night, I doubt we will ever be able to show our faces in the Lakeview dining room again.

Isaac: Ah, now, I had help, Ms. McKechnie. If I remember, we had a very passionate kiss that started right about here.

Bonnie: Yes, of which you didn't resist.

Isaac: I surrendered to you a long time ago, baby. What do you say we go to every restaurant in Oakdale and see if we can't get kicked out one by one?

Bonnie: And then what? I can't cook. We'll starve to death.

Isaac: No, you can't cook. We'll starve to death together, in each other's arms.

[Marshall clears throat]

Marshall: I thought it was far too early for happy hour. Seems I was mistaken.

Holden: You awake?

Lily: I don't know why.

Holden: Bored, huh?

Lily: I'm desperately bored. I was hoping you were Dr. Samuels telling me I could go home.

Holden: Well, if I were you, I would stay here and enjoy the peace and quiet while you can. Because when you come home, it's just gonna be pure chaos.

Lily: Did you talk to Aaron?

Holden: Not since last night, after blowing up at him. He's not home, he's not at mama's.

Lily: Oh. Probably went for a ride on his motorcycle to clear his head.

Holden: I feel like such a jerk.

Lily: What -- what are you talking about? Because you got upset with him? He disappeared half the night. I think you're allowed.

Holden: I don't know. You know, ever since he came here, I've kept saying to myself, "what's so difficult about raising a teenager? You just love them, you trust them and let them know that you're on their side."

Lily: You've been doing that ever since he came here.

Holden: Yeah, and it was easy, as long as Aaron stayed in line. As long as he was acting the way I wanted him to act, I felt like father of the year. A minute he makes a mistake, I go ballistic.

Lily: You had a lot on your mind when this happened. I'm in the hospital and the kids were up late, and Aaron disappeared. He didn't come home when you asked him to. I am not gonna sit here and make you feel worse.

Holden: Just don't try to make me feel better either.

Lily: Okay. So you blew it? What are you gonna do about it?

[Holden sighs]

Craig: You okay, sweetie?

Lucy: No. I just got a message from Aaron on our voice mail.

Craig: Not good news?

Lucy: He said he couldn't take the way things were with his father after last night, so, he's leaving Oakdale.

Craig: He's leaving? Well, that's too bad.

Lucy: I'm sorry, daddy, but the deal we made last night? I'm gonna have to break it.

Craig: Whoa, whoa, whoa -- you agreed you weren't gonna see him till I said it was okay.

Lucy: I know, but this is really, really important.

Craig: Meaning what? You got to go see him now?

Lucy: I have to, daddy. He said he was going to leave, and it's all because of me. I can't let him go.

Hal: Caesar salad for two. Italian bread. And -- ah, spaghetti and meatballs. Yeah. Oh, the mood? The mood? Yeah. The mood? Oh, a nice Chianti bottle with a candle in it. And checkered tablecloth. The works. Yeah. Oh, about 7:00. Yeah, that would be good. Okay. Oh, thank you. Thank you. Hi. Hey, where have you been?

Emily: Getting my head chewed off.

Hal: Uh-oh. What happened?

Emily: I did it. I told Alison the truth about who I really am, and it was awful, Hal -- awful.

Hal: Emily, you expected it to be easy?

Emily: No. No, but I didn't expect her to fly off in a rage, and now she's out there somewhere, I don't know where.

Hal: Okay, hon. Okay. Just calm down, calm down. Let's just talk this thing through.

Emily: You know what? I'm just thinking this is possibly the worst day of my life.

Alison: What were you trying to do out there, mow me down?!

Aaron: You shouldn't have been sticking your thumb out so far.

Alison: I was trying to get a ride, and not from you.

Aaron: I am not letting you become the next milk carton poster, okay? Not until you hear me out first.

Alison: Did I ask your permission to run away? I mean, who do you even think you are?

Aaron: Can you put your bag down, please?

Alison: Hey, put that down!

Aaron: I'm not letting you get away this time. Look, I'm gonna put it right down here.

Alison: So, what are these wise words you wanted to say to me, swami?

Aaron: So, you want to run away? You can't make it on your own.

Alison: Yeah, thanks for the vote of confidence.

Aaron: What kind of girl thinks they're gonna hitch a ride to Vegas and show up in some club off the streets, start dancing?

Alison: I could.

Aaron: You're dreaming.

Alison: I saw an ad for it.

Aaron: So, you're gonna walk into some stranger's doorstep with the ad that you pulled out of the back of Intruder?

Alison: They pay to place those ads. They wouldn't do it if they weren't looking for someone.

Aaron: Someone to what?

Alison: To dance, I told you.

Aaron: Uh-huh. Did you pack your toe shoes?

Alison: It's not ballet.

Aaron: Then what is it, Alison? Because there's sickos out there looking for girls like you.

Alison: What do you mean "girls like me"?

Aaron: Little dopey runaways from the Midwest that they can turn into hookers in two seconds flat.

Alison: Something to put on a postcard to my mother and sister.

Aaron: Yeah, right.

Alison: Or whatever the hell it is.

Aaron: Okay, that's the second time you've said that. What are you talking about?

Alison: You don't want to know. It's too weird.

Aaron: You met my folks, Caleb and Julie? Yeah, they're the king and queen of weird. Try me.

Alison: Well, my mother wanted to have a baby.

Aaron: When?

Alison: About 18 years ago. Get it? She was married to this really young guy and, being the cradle robber that she was, she wanted to hang onto him. But she couldn't get pregnant. I don't know, her eggs were too old or something. So my brilliant sister, Emily, gave her one of her eggs.

Aaron: Is this some kind of in-vitro thing?

Alison: Yeah, yeah. Just call me Alison "test-tube" Stewart. I was started in a petri dish, and I didn't even know it!

Aaron: Wow. Yeah, that is pretty --

Alison: Weird, right? So now you see why I'd rather dance on the top of a bar in front of some strangers than have to go home and have to put up with those two lying rats.

Isaac: You'll have to forgive Ms. Mckechnie and myself, we didn't realize that we had customers.

Marshall: It is early, isn't it? In fact, I didn't even think you'd be open.

Isaac: We just opened.

Marshall: Good. I had some time to kill between my appointments at the courthouse. I thought I'd come by, have a bloody Mary, if it's not too much trouble.

Isaac: No trouble at all.

Bonnie: You said you've been to the courthouse? Are you an attorney?

Marshall: Yes.

Bonnie: Oh, my mother's an attorney. Are you new to Oakdale?

Marshall: I've been here a short while. I have to admit, I've seen you, from a distance, but we've never been introduced. I'm Marshall Travers. I'm representing a woman by the name of Barbara Ryan. Your mother is?

Bonnie: Jessica Griffin. She's the D.A. She's actually handling the Barbara Ryan case herself.

Marshall: Indeed she is. She and I have met.

Bonnie: Of course. Pre-trial motions.

Marshall: Jessica Griffin is a beautiful woman. I see the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Isaac: And that apple is spoken for, counselor.

Bonnie: Hey, Lisa.

Lisa: Hi, darling. I need a word with you, honey.

Isaac: Oh, sure. So, what's up?

Lisa: Well, first of all, you said something earlier about doing the inventory?

Isaac: Yeah, yeah. It completely slipped my mind. I got busy and --

Lisa: Well, Isaac, we have -- we haven't had a proper inventory since before you left for Scotland.

Isaac: Now, hold on. Vivian said --

Lisa: No, no, no. No, no. Vivian was doing an emergency inventory. That was for the insurance company after we had that brawl here.

Isaac: That's right. You know, I'm sorry. I just -- I've gotten busy and it slipped my mind. I'm sorry. With Bonnie and everything --

Lisa: Well, I'm very happy about you and Bonnie, but we got to straighten out a couple of things.

Isaac: Like what?

Lisa: Well, for instance, like that little Brandy person you hired.

Isaac: What about her?

Lisa: Honey, are you aware that that little tramp is the one who broke up Adam with his cute, little girlfriend?

Isaac: Now, I know that Adam is your grandson, Lisa, but --

Lisa: No, no, no buts. She is a little wrecking ball, and she wasn't happy until she made sure he was so miserable that he had to transfer his college out to the west coast.

Isaac: Now, Lisa, I heard he went out there to study film-making.

Lisa: You don't understand. The point is, that girl is trouble. She is a practicing heartbreaker.

Isaac: That may be true, but she's not a bad cocktail waitress. And if she gets the guys going and they buy a couple extra drinks --

Lisa: Oh, you are so mercenary.

Brandy: Oh, you two are here. I guess I was busy and didn't hear you come in.

Lisa: Oh. So, where's Vivian?

Brandy: She called this morning. Said her baby had an ear infection, so I'm gonna cover for her.

Isaac: And you were available.

Lisa: Well, look, we were just talking about you.

Brandy: I got here a little early today, hope you don't mind. I did the inventory. I know it's not really my job, but -- I also cleaned behind the back bar area. It was getting a little cruddy back there.

Isaac: You just saved me a lot of time and a major headache. Thank you, Brandy.

Brandy: No problem at all. It was kind of fun, really. So, tell me, why was I the topic of conversation?

Lisa: Well, Isaac has something he'd like to say to you.

Emily: Maybe my mom was right. I should have just left well enough alone.

Hal: And not told Alison you donated the egg?

Emily: No, no. But maybe I shouldn't have laid all the news on her at once.

Hal: Emily, news like that -- you either tell her all at once or you don't tell her at all. What else could you have done?

Emily: I don't know. I just was so afraid that she was gonna overhear it from some stranger.

Hal: She could have, and think how much harder that would have been on Alison.

Emily: So, what, you don't think what I did was such a bad thing?

Hal: Hon, however you told her, I'm sure that you told her with love. And once she calms down, she'll realize that you told her because you love her.

Emily: You are my prince. I just hope and pray I don't screw this up.

Hal: What? You and me? Ah, not possible. Not possible.

Emily: Yeah, don't be sure about it. I've been known to mess up the impossible.

[Knock at the door] Alison! Alison! Oh, please be Alison! Mom, have you seen Alison?

Susan: No, but I've heard from her. I got that when I got home.

Emily: Oh, my God! Oh, my God, she's running away!

Hal: Calm down. Calm down. We don't know that for sure. Susan, did you check her room?

Susan: I did. And there are things missing -- clothes, the little bit of money she was able to save from her allowance --

Emily: This is awful. This is awful.

Susan: Well, you got your way, and as usual, everything's going to hell in a hand basket. You happy now?

Holden: I called Aaron stupid.

Lily: Did you call him stupid or what he did stupid? It's very different.

Holden: Not in Aaron's eyes. The kid was hurt. I could tell.

Lily: He lost the keys, he didn't call to tell you. It's not okay any way you look at it.

Holden: Yeah, but I never should have gone off on him like I did.

Lily: Look, sit down. Come here. You were up all night. You were up all night worried about me and the baby and him. He could've been dead, wrapped around a tree.

Holden: So I overreacted? And Aaron was just the unlucky guy in my path?

Lily: Yes, yes. And I'm fine and the -- the baby is fine. The doctor said so. So, please, just try to make things right with Aaron.

Holden: It's easier said than done. This morning with Luke and Faith? A bowl of ice cream, a couple of videos -- all was forgiven. But I just don't have that same kind of trust, the same kind of history with Aaron that I have with the kids.

Lily: You've got to forgive yourself. It's not easy to become a full-time parent to a teenager, just like that.

Holden: The worst part of all of it? We were finally beginning to make some progress. I feel like he opened up to me. I was beginning to see who he really is. And I like what I see. I love him, but I just don't know how to make him believe that.

Alison: All I know is that everything is real clear to me now.

Aaron: Like what?

Alison: How much my so-called "family" really cares about me. Emily just laid her egg and went on her merry way. Never gave a damn about me, not when my father left or when my mother started treating me like a prisoner.

Aaron: I still don't get how you got from this egg-donor thing to how your parents don't care about you.

Alison: Well, Emily's all hung up on this Munson guy, right? He's got, like, kids from every woman on the planet. So now, she's trying to be this big earth-woman type. It's all a show, so she can hang onto him. That's why she told me about this -- that she's my mother. Yuck. But, you know, I've got news for them. Because her plan's gonna backfire. Hal Munson wants another kid in his life like he wants his blood sucked out.

Aaron: And that's the reason you're taking off?

Alison: Emily wants to claim me as her own now, but do you think I wanna stick around when she decides she's over it? No way.

Aaron: Who cares where the egg came from -- or how you got here, who your DNA mother is!

Alison: Nobody, especially them. I'm just a convenient tool for Emily to get whatever she wants in the romance department. Why am I even telling you this? You don't get it.

Aaron: You know how I got on this planet? My dad, Holden, had a one-night stand with my mother.

Alison: Really?

Aaron: Yeah. You still don't think I get it?

Alison: Parents think they're so freaking smart, they're just a bunch of morons.

Aaron: Yeah. And you and me are just racking up the genius points.

Alison: So, are you going to go to Seattle when you take off?

Aaron: Can't.

Alison: Why were you gonna even leave in the first place?

Aaron: Because Holden wants a kid who's never gonna screw up, and that's not gonna be me.

Alison: Look, I have an idea. I mean, you've seen enough -- enough to get us out of trouble.

Aaron: "Us"?

Alison: Yeah. Why don't you and I go off together?

Brandy: Isaac, can I say one thing before you tell me what's on your mind?

Isaac: Yeah, sure.

Brandy: Okay. It's no secret around here that Lisa doesn't like me.

Lisa: Oh, and for good reason.

Brandy: What I'm trying to say is, I'm really sorry about all of the problems that I've caused. It was hard for me, too, when I saw the fallout after Adam and I got close.

Lisa: Oh, you mean after you took the bribe to seduce him.

Isaac: Lisa, let her talk.

Brandy: I'll admit, I've kept some pretty bad company in the past. But I've learned my lesson. It opened my eyes. I mean, that's why I'm here. I'm trying to get my life back together. I really need this job.

Lisa: Why? Why? Just so you can have a new front for your little operations?

Isaac: Lisa --

Brandy: Hey, I'm not very proud of this, but I'm on academic probation at school. Yeah. After everything that happened last semester, I didn't even complete my senior year. I don't even know if I'm gonna be able to get my diploma. My mother is so mad at me that she won't let me come home. And, honestly, this job is the one thing between me and a tin cup. So, if I -- I need -- excuse me.

Isaac: Mm-hmm. What does my brother always say? There but for the grace of God --

Lisa: Isaac, if you're gonna tell me that you fell for that cock and bull story, then I'm gonna tell you, I have lost all the respect I've ever had for you. Just a silly man.

Marshall: So your mother never mentioned my name?

Bonnie: No. But then I've been out of the country up until recently. I really haven't had much of a chance to catch up with mother on her work. So how did pre-trial motions go?

Marshall: I convinced the judge to rule in my client's favor. It was an important first step.

Bonnie: Oh. Well, then I guess it's time that I took my mother out for lunch, cheer her up a little.

Marshall: Indeed. Though she's a fairly graceful loser, I can't help but wonder, now that you've told me who you were, if I'd wandered into hostile territory.

Bonnie: Guess you won't find out until after you finish that bloody Mary.

Marshall: If I died looking at your exquisite face, I'd die a happy man.

Bonnie: When my mother mentioned that Ms. Ryan had hired a talented attorney, she forgot to mention he was also a snake.

Marshall: So she did mention my name.

Bonnie: Perhaps it slithered off her tongue. I don't know. I forgot.

Marshall: I didn't mean to offend you. I'll excuse myself if that will make you feel more comfortable.

Bonnie: Does my mother have any other reason to resent you? I mean, besides this case?

Marshall: I never met your mother until I decided to defend Barbara Ryan.

Bonnie: Then please stay, enjoy your drink. Just so long as you can keep our chat strictly business.

Marshall: That works well for me.

Bonnie: And why's that?

Marshall: With me, everything is business.

Aaron: If I go, I go by myself. No passengers.

Alison: Why not? I can take care of myself.

Aaron: Like nobody's gonna notice you're not at the dinner table pouting?

Alison: They probably won't.

Aaron: You're dreaming. Okay? 'Cause as soon as you're out of sight for a couple hours, they're gonna launch this huge manhunt. And your sister's boyfriend -- he's a cop, right? So he's gonna try extra hard just to impress her. And then your mom and your sister are gonna be bawling over when you're gonna come home.

Alison: Neither one of them gives a damn about me.

Aaron: How could you say something like that? After you just told me what kind of trouble they went to make you? You have two women fighting over who wants to be your mom.

Alison: Oh, you're twisting everything around.

Aaron: Alison, if we go together, sooner or later, they're gonna find you. And they're gonna blame it all on me, okay? They're gonna blame me for taking you away from your house, corrupting a minor. They're gonna take you to your home, or they're gonna take you to a home. And I'm gonna get sent to jail!

Alison: You act like they won't look for you.

Aaron: They won't. Unlike you, because I was an accident.

Alison: Did they actually tell you that?

Aaron: They don't have to. Besides the point, no matter what they say or how they treat me, they're just trying to make the best out of a bad situation.

Alison: I always had this feeling that my family was this thing, this unit and I was on the outside. Is that how you feel? Why don't we just hit the road and go some place where we don't have to think about how to act right for the people who screwed up our lives? Why don't we just go somewhere where we can do whatever we want?

Aaron: 'Cause maybe a place like that doesn't exist.

Alison: If leaving isn't the right answer, what is?

Craig: We made an agreement just a few hours ago, and you're already going to break it?

Lucy: Dad, this isn't a business deal. This is my life. I mean, you should have heard the message Aaron left. Something is really wrong.

Craig: You know, Lucy, as hard as this may be for you to believe, I was Aaron's age once. I had a crisis every week. It comes with the territory.

Lucy: No, Aaron's not like that. He keeps his feelings inside.

Craig: Yeah, I've noticed. A shoulder shrug is about the limit of his expression.

Lucy: You think this is funny? Oh, yeah, it's really cute to watch little teenagers get all dramatic. You know, I should never have even told you. I should have just waited till you left, then gone behind your back.

Craig: Why didn't you?

Lucy: Because I'm trying to respect you. I'm trying to live up to that promise I made you.

Craig: All right. You can go. Just go talk to him.

Lucy: Thank you, daddy! You're the best dad in the whole world.

Craig: Yes. And, as such, you will keep me posted of your whereabouts at all times.

Lucy: Oh, I will. You'll get sick of me calling you.

Craig: Oh, no, no. Never, never. Now listen, you want me to keep up that dinner between us Capulets and them Montagues?

Lucy: Would you? It'll be great. You'll like Aaron once you really get to know him.

Craig: Yeah, we'll see.

Lucy: It's all going to work out. I can feel it. I have to go tell Aaron.

Craig: Spivak? Craig Montgomery. Yeah, I know it's been a long time. Not since you dug up that information for me on Winston Lowe. This time, look, it's a little more personal. I want you to get anything you can on a young guy named Aaron Snyder.

Isaac: I see you had a little one on one with the mighty Marshall Travers, huh?

Bonnie: You know who he is?

Isaac: Knowing people is my business, Bonnie. So what did he want?

Bonnie: The man must be hungry. He tried to see if I was on the menu. But I handled it.

Isaac: Well, then I think I should go have a little talk with him, too.

Bonnie: Isaac, what are you doing?

Isaac: I just think it's time for the lawyer to meet the judge.

Bonnie: Hey, hey, calm down. Calm down. I told you, I handled the situation.

Isaac: I trust you. I know. But I just don't want the situation over there sitting on my barstool.

Bonnie: Okay.

Lisa: Okay, I think Brandy has gotten her poor little self together now. You can have that little talk you wanted to have with her earlier.

Brandy: Did you have a chance to look at the inventory I did?

Isaac: Actually, I did. And I must say, it's very thorough.

Bonnie: Are you the one who cleaned the back of bar?

Brandy: Yes.

Bonnie: Good job. It's more clean and more organized than it's been in a very long time.

Brandy: I'm really trying to turn over a new leaf. I know Ms. Grimaldi has good reason to be skeptical but all I need is a chance to prove myself.

Lisa: Isaac?

Isaac: I gotta tell you, Lisa, she did a heck of a job today. I think she deserves at least a shot.

Lisa: All right, missy. Just remember what I told you when you first came to work here. I told you I was gonna be watching you. I mean, I'm gonna be watching you so close, you'll feel my breath down your little bare back, okay? One step out of line -- one -- you're history.

Brandy: Thank you, Isaac. You're not gonna regret this.

Isaac: I hope not. Because my partner has very strong feelings about it, and I never cross her. Ms. Mckechnie, perhaps you could join me in the back so we could go over the inventory together.

Bonnie: I think that's a very good idea.

[Phone rings]

Lucy: Montgomery residence.

Susan: Lucy? It's Susan Stewart.

Lucy: Oh, hello, Dr. Stewart.

Susan: I -- I'm trying to track down Alison. I was wondering if she was with you.

Lucy: Not this time. I haven't seen her all day. You sound like something's wrong?

Susan: Oh, we had a little argument. And she got angry, and took off.

Lucy: It's because we stayed out, wasn't it? I'm sorry.

Susan: Oh, no. No, Lucy, it was nothing you did. Alison does that sometimes, she just runs away. But she doesn't stay angry very long. Listen, if -- if you hear from her, would you ask her to call home?

Lucy: Sure, Dr. Stewart.

Susan: Thank you, Lucy.

Emily: Well, I talked to Al's diner, Mabel's, Java, everywhere Alison hangs out, and no one's seen her.

Susan: I just talked to Lucy. No luck there either.

Emily: Look, mom, I know you blame me for upsetting the status quo here, but she had to find out the truth.

Susan: Why? Why did she have to find out the truth?

Emily: Because, mother, we made no secret about this whole thing. The entire town knows about the in-vitro!

Susan: Did you really expect somebody to walk up to Alison and say, "hey, I heard that your mother got pregnant with you using your sister's egg"?

Hal: I don't know. I've seen kids be pretty cruel with stuff they pick up listening to adults.

Susan: This conversation is pretty academic, don't you think? We don't even know where she is!

Hal: Well, Alison's part drama queen, isn't she? I mean, maybe her running away is just for effect. Or maybe she just needed time to think. And she'll be in her room watching music videos by the end of the day.

Susan: She is not that tough, not as tough as she pretends. She doesn't know a lot about the world. And she trusts people too easily. She could really end up in a terrible situation.

Hal: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I could put a couple of black and whites out to look for her, if they spot her.

Emily: Wait a minute. They're not going to arrest her, will they?

Hal: No, Emily, I won't -- they'll just call me if they see her, that's all.

Susan: Thank you, Hal. I really, really appreciate that.

Hal: Susan, why don't you go home and sit tight in case she shows up there.

Susan: Thank you. I will.

Emily: Mom? Can you just do me a favor? If she does come home, could you just not yell at her, please?

Susan: Believe it or not, Emily, I do know how to be a good mother.

Hal: All right. A couple of deep breaths and just calm down. I know you want to panic. But --

Emily: This is my fault. All this is my fault. I had to bombard her with the truth. You told me no, my mom told me no. But, no, I get something in my head, I'm set on something and there's no stopping me. And now Alison's out -- she's out there somewhere at risk. I swear, I should wear a sign that says, "just stay away from her, because she's gonna ruin your life."

Hal: Don't, Emily. Don't --

Emily: Please, just -- please.

Aaron: Can't you somehow manage to stay away from Emily and your mom? Maybe get a job and hang out with your friends?

Alison: What about you? You're just gonna leave Lucy behind?

Aaron: I may never see Lucy again if Craig has anything to say about it.

Alison: I guess getting stuck in the car in Chicago was what brought on all the trouble -- having Lucy home so late?

Aaron: Things were looking pretty good between me and Lucy up until that point. But I figured I'd screw things up royally.

[Alison remembering]

Alison: Yikes. Aaron, none of that was your fault.

Aaron: How do you figure that?

Alison: I don't know. I'm just talking. Never mind. Maybe you're right. Maybe running away isn't the answer.

Aaron: Pretty much never is.

Alison: Would you mind taking me to see Emily? I -- I left a pretty bad scene. And I want to fix things, starting with her.

Aaron: You want to take my bike?

Alison: Yeah! And this time, it'll be a lot fun, because I won't be mad at you. Can I leave my backpack here? I -- I don't want to carry it with me. It's pretty tight.

Aaron: Yeah, sure. We can just pick it up on the way back once you've -- you and Emily and your mom made up.

Alison: Yeah, don't get too hopeful.

Aaron: And if you're nice, maybe they'll give you the key to their car. You're making a good decision, Alison.

Alison: Yeah. I'm beginning to think so, too.

Lily: Tell Luke and Faith that I miss them, please? And give them a kiss for me.

Holden: I will. And Faith, she wants to read you a little poem that she wrote in day camp.

Lily: Oh, that's so nice. Oh, also, tell Luke, please, he cannot be playing that video game all day long just because I'm not there, really, please.

Holden: Okay, okay, I'll tell him. And you call me. As soon as the nurse discharges, I'll come get you, okay?

Craig: Knock, knock.

Lily: Craig?

Craig: Yeah. Is everything okay? Holden told me you were in the hospital. I hope everything's all right?

Lily: I'm doing better, yes. I'm hoping to get discharged this afternoon.

Holden: She needs her rest, Craig. No added stress.

Craig: I come in peace.

Lily: Thank you. Oh, goodness.

Holden: That's a nice change.

Craig: I want to have you and Aaron over to the Lakeview for dinner -- I'm gonna bring Lucy, tomorrow night if --

Holden: What's this all about?

Craig: Well, we've been locking horns over the kids' dating. And I thought maybe we should get to know each other's children, dispense with the hostility a little.

Holden: Well, that's quite a change. Not what I expected to hear out of you, especially after what happened last night.

Craig: Lucy -- Lucy wants Aaron in her life. And -- as her father, I suppose I have to accept that.

Holden: Like it's such a challenge, Craig. Aaron's a good kid. Lucy could do a lot worse.

Craig: Just wait until Faith grows up as beautiful as her mother, and some guy shows up at the door. I don't care how fine a person he his, you're gonna be wanting to load up that shotgun.

[Lily laughs]

Holden: Okay, all right, I understand your concern. I'll do my part to make this thing work.

Lily: And you'll understand if I can't make it, Craig?

Craig: Yeah, sure. I'll make the arrangements. But stay well.

Lily: I will. Thank you. Bye.

Holden: I wonder what he's up to.

Lily: Maybe he just wants his daughter to be happy.

Holden: I doubt it. Forgive me for being skeptical. But you know what? It is a piece of good news that Aaron might like to hear.

Lily: And there is nothing like a girl to change a man's perspective.

Holden: Ain't that right.

Lucy: Aaron, are you here? It's Aaron's. Maybe he's not gone yet. Hello? Can you please connect me to Lily Snyder's room?

Lisa: Brandy, I have a million and one things I have to do, so if I get any phone calls, will you take a message for me, please?

Brandy: No problem, Ms. Grimaldi.

Lisa: Good.

Brandy: Oh, is Isaac still around?

Lisa: Why, yes. He's in the back. He's checking over some deliveries that just came in. That means you are going to be in charge of this whole club out here in the front all by yourself.

Brandy: No problem. We don't have that many customers. Oh, Lisa? Thanks again for going along with this second chance.

Lisa: Just see that you make the most of it.

Brandy: I intend to. Bloody Mary, is it? Would you care for another?

Marshall: I want more than that.

Brandy: Are you flirting with me or is this about the little offer you made me last week?

Marshall: I'm all business, all the time. Have you given any thought to what I said the other day?

Brandy: Are you kidding? A little information on the duchess for a major-league watch?

Marshall: For a start.

Brandy: Yeah, piece of cake. You would not believe what I had to just go through to be able to keep this lousy job. The boss thinks I'm the greatest thing since watered booze. And his little duchess girlfriend doesn't think I'm half bad either.

Marshall: Good. I'm gonna need you to keep your ears open around that one. I need any information you can get on her mother.

Brandy: The D.A., Jessica Griffin. Yeah. Should be easy. She's in here all the time.

Marshall: My name is Marshall -- Marshall Travers. But I'm sure you know that already. What's yours?

Brandy: Brandy.

Marshall: Just Brandy?

Brandy: As in V.S.O.P. -- The really expensive kind.

Hal: Okay, Thanks. Thank you. Yeah, but you'll let me know if they spot her. Okay? Thanks.

Emily: Heard anything?

Hal: None of the units have seen her yet. But that doesn't mean she's left town, hon. She hasn't been spotted at the bus station. Wait, where -- where're you going?

Hal: Well, I thought maybe I'd head down to the station. I could probably get a lot more done from down there.

Emily: Thank you. Thank you, thank you. Putting up with me, my crazy family -- why are you so incredible?

Hal: I don't know if I am incredible. Maybe it's because I wish I had interfered a little bit more in Jennifer's life before she flew the coop.

Emily: You did a great job with Jennifer.

Hal: Well -- then maybe it's because you are by far the best thing to have happened to me in a very, very long time.

Emily: Yeah?

Hal: Oh, yeah. You know what? I kinda had this set up to do later on, but maybe I shouldn't wait.

Emily: Do what later on?

Hal: I mean, this really isn't the right setting, and there's no candles and it's not very romantic or anything like that, but -- but Emily Stewart, would you do me the honor of becoming about the 14th Mrs. Munson?

Emily: The 14th and final Mrs. Munson! Yes, yes, yes, yes! Please.

Hal: Well, with this ring, I do thee engage.

Emily: Oh! Hmm.

[Both laughing]

Alison: This sure was a monumentally stupid idea. Let's just get the hell out of here.

Holden: Lucy? I got a message from Lily. You were looking for me?

Lucy: You have to work things out with Aaron. You just have to!

Holden: What -- what's wrong? Has something happened?

Lucy: Yes! He left me a message that things were really awful between the two of you, and I'm afraid if you don't fix it, Aaron's gonna leave town.

Craig: I already knew about the guy's arrest record. It's sealed anyway. I need something else. With a kid like that, there's always something more. Fast! And I want something solid, and I want it by tomorrow night. Get it on

Bonnie: Get it on. Like to play smooth and sweet skip a heartbeat that best place to get it on.

Jack: I'm the original renaissance man, baby. Go ahead yeah get it on

Alison: Ooh. Don't be afraid now get it on, get it on yeah get it on get it on

Emily: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
