Emily: Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! Come one, come all. Hey! Don't you guys usually come running when I make PBJs?

[Knock on door]

Tom: Hi.

Emily: Hi. I have Daniel tonight, right?

Tom: You do. But I've been instructed to take him.

Emily: What?

Tom: And Will.

Emily: What are you talking about? Does Hal know about this?

Tom: Your fiancÚ? Yeah, he knows all about it. I think you better put on your dancing shoes. It's time to go to the ball.

Brandy: We're also low on seltzer and cocktail napkins. Should I call our distributor?

Isaac: No.

Brandy: We only have enough to get us through the week.

Isaac: And that may be more than we need.

Bonnie: Don't take it personally. He's snapping at everybody today. Brandy was just trying to help.

Isaac: I'll say I'm sorry later, right after I tell everybody they lost their jobs.

Bonnie: I thought things were going to be all right.

Isaac: Our liquor license expires at midnight.

Bonnie: But my mother --

Isaac: Did the best that she could. It's not her fault that those people are playing hardball. Lisa talked to them. She couldn't even get satisfaction, and she's dealt with some of those dudes for years.

Bonnie: So, that's it? Java underground can be out of business in less than 12 hours?

Isaac: Some of the people on the staff have worked with me since day one. How am I supposed to tell them that they don't --

Bonnie: Mom! Why won't the Liquor Board cut Isaac some slack? This has to be personal.

Jessica: It is. And his name's Mervin P. Warner.

Isaac: I know him. That's the loudmouth who tried to stop me from getting my gambling license a few years back.

Jessica: Yeah. Well, he's exacting his revenge.

Isaac: You know who's gonna pay? The men and women that work around here. That's our livelihood.

Jessica: Tell it to the board.

Isaac: By the time I get the chance, Java underground will be closed.

Ben: Unless a gorgeous district attorney comes to your rescue.

Jessica: Isaac, my friend, you have a closed session with the Liquor Board right now.

Isaac: I do?

Jessica: Be prepared to make the speech of your life.

Jack: I was looking for you before I left this morning.

Carly: I was in the shower.

Jack: Yes, for a really long time.

Carly: Busted. I guess I just wasn't ready to talk to you. But I'm glad you invited me out for coffee. Parker's having a play date, and I was getting cramps in my fingers from my sketching.

Jack: How are the designs coming?

Carly: Not too good, actually. A lot of my drawings are starting to look like Julia. So I think it's time to hash this out.

Jack: No cappuccino small-talk first?

Carly: No small talk anymore, Jack.

Jack: Yes, you never did like it. That's one of the things I love about you.

Carly: And I love you. I guess that's why I felt so awful when you told me that Julia could be carrying your baby.

Jack: I should have eased into it a little better, huh?

Carly: There's nothing you could have done. That woman has a way of throwing wrenches into our lives.

Jack: No. No, just because I let her. But I am done feeling guilty. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I've realized, there's a certain irony to all of this. When Julia tied me up in that straitjacket, what she really wound up doing was setting me free.

Lucy: Alison's gonna sneak up any minute. Maybe you should go.

Aaron: Just promise that it's gonna work out. That you're gonna ditch her at the party.

Lucy: And meet you in the woods behind the Old mill. She's here.

Aaron: Okay. Later.

Alison: I love when you summon me to places of half-naked guys. So, what's up?

Lucy: I changed my mind. Let's go to that party tonight.

Alison: Really? Excellent. Just come by my house and act like we're going to the movies. My mom will be so happy to see the princess in plaid, she won't suspect a thing.

Lucy: When are you, my father and the rest of the world gonna realize that I am not clueless?

Alison: If you're lucky? Never. I'm gonna go tell Chase and Jeb we're going. Oh -- I am such a genius. When you come to my house, park your car around the corner and ask if you can take mine. We'll really take separate ones. But in case someone like you wants to leave early, and my mother will still think that we're going together.

Lucy: Works for me.

Alison: What about your dad? What are we going to do about Mr. Overprotective?

Lucy: Oh, we don't have to do anything. He's out of town.

Alison: We are so golden.

Lucy: Nothing can stop us now. Except her.

Lucy: She was there when I got home last night. And then she was there when I woke up this morning.

Alison: Who is she?

Lucy: My father's personal watchdog. Hey, Rosanna.

Rosanna: Hi.

Lucy: What are you doing here?

Rosanna: Oh, I'm just meeting one of my board members. You know, an afternoon of cocktails and war stories can make all the difference when the votes are split. Who's your friend?

Lucy: Oh, Alison Stewart. Alison, this is Rosanna.

Alison: Rosanna! Lucy's said so many nice things about you.

Rosanna: Really?

Lucy: Yeah, actually, Alison just invited me to go to a party tonight.

Rosanna: Oh? Where?

Alison: At -- at the Sinclair's. They have a lakefront estate. Maybe you know it? Their twins just came back from Europe, and they're having a barbecue.

Rosanna: The Sinclair's? I thought I knew all the families on the lake. That name doesn't ring a bell.

Lucy: Well, they're new. They just moved here from --

Alison: I think it was Detroit.

Lucy: Yeah. Their dad travels a lot.

Rosanna: Is the party chaperoned?

Lucy: Of course.

Alison: Their mother will be there -- Mr. Sinclair. She's a -- I think it was a professor. A professor, yeah.

Lucy: Yeah, at the university. She teaches -- Comparative Religion.

Rosanna: Oh, wow. That sounds lovely. They sound like lovely people. What time's the party?

Lucy: Soon, actually. We're gonna go home and change.

Rosanna: Well, I know how long that can take at your age. So why don't I meet you at the Lakeview in an hour and a half?

Lucy: What for?

Rosanna: Well, to drive you to the party. What else? I'd like to meet the Sinclair's. They sound like my kind of people.

Emily: Okay. 611, this is it. Hal?

Hal: You were expecting someone else?

Emily: No. I mean -- no. I guess I figured you were behind the carriage ride and the key card downstairs and everything. But this is quite a surprise. Turn around.

Hal: What am I, a fashion model?

Emily: Why are you dressed in a tuxedo?

Hal: Well, what else does one wear to a night at the opera?

Emily: The opera?

Hal: Mm-hmm.

Emily: Tonight? The cubs are playing tonight.

Hal: Don't remind me. Come on, we better get going. We wouldn't want to be late for those arias.

Emily: I'm really glad I'm with the chief of detectives right now, because I would like to file a missing person's report. His name's Hal Munson.

Hal: Description?

Emily: Strong, handsome -- really handsome.

Hal: Oh, him.

Emily: Smart and so cute.

Hal: He's been spotted taking an incredible woman out to a four-star dinner at a five-star restaurant.

Emily: No, sorry, wrong guy. My Hal likes hot dogs and sauerkraut.

Hal: Too messy in the back of a limo.

Emily: Limo?

Hal: Right downstairs, doll.

Emily: Oh, Hal!

Hal: Do I smell peanut butter?

Emily: Yes, you smell peanut butter and who knows what else. And maybe you haven't noticed, I'm not dressed for the opera or a four-star restaurant.

Hal: Which is why I bought you this.

[Emily chuckles]

Emily: It's beautiful. Why did you do this?

Hal: Because I was wrong. Because I shouldn't have sided with Susan about Alison. Because I had no business discussing your sister with Barbara. Emily, when you walked out that door --

Emily: Yeah, I was angry. It doesn't mean I stopped loving you -- not for a minute.

Hal: Last year, when my life fell apart, when my house turned into a battleground and my kids caught the fallout, you were there. You were drying tears. You were making lunches. You were helping Jen let go. And I should have thanked you. And what did I do? I turn paranoid that Alison is gonna mess everything up. I guess it's just taken so long for things to get good again, I'm just a little bit overprotective. I'm afraid we're gonna lose what we have. I'm sorry if I hurt ya, hon. I'm sorry.

Emily: Hal, nobody -- and I mean nobody -- has ever done anything like this for me.

Hal: Well, their loss. Because you, Emily Stewart, are the brass ring on the merry-go-round. And I got ya, and I'm never letting you go. Now, you ready for a night on the town?

Emily: Wait a minute. Don't you think anyone's gonna smell the peanut butter here?

Hal: Let's ask Claudette.

Emily: Who's Claudette? Hi.

Claudette: Hi.

Hal: Your personal stylist.

[Emily laughs]

Emily: Oh.

Bonnie: Walk in there and let those people know who you are and what great things you're doing. Show them the books, show them the thank you letters from the hospital board thanking us for contributions to the Burn unit. They'll listen, even if Mervin P. Warner doesn't.

Isaac: You're damn right. I'm not gonna let some loudmouth shut us down.

Jessica: There you go.

Bonnie: And don't forget the books.

Isaac: Right.

Ben: All right. Good luck.

Jessica: You'll win 'em over in the first five minutes!

Bonnie: Two minutes! Mom, you are the best.

Brandy: Yeah, I'd like to leave a message for Mr. Travers. Tell him Brandy needs to see him right away and that she has some really good news.

Bonnie: What is it? The good news? I could use some.

Brandy: Oh -- it's -- I don't think it's anything you'd be interested in.

Bonnie: Isaac -- love you.

Isaac: Wait for me?

Bonnie: Of course. Go for it.

Man: Excuse me.

Isaac: Sorry, man.

Brandy: Is Isaac going off to save the club or something?

Bonnie: Well, you've heard about the problems with the license?

Brandy: Yeah. You know, he talks about it more than he realizes.

Bonnie: Well, I think everything should be all right. My mother pulled some strings and got him a special audience at the Liquor board.

Brandy: Really?

Bonnie: Yeah.

Brandy: It helps to have friends in high places, huh?

Bonnie: Yeah, well, we're not in the clear yet. Don't say a word. Because I don't want anything to, you know, start a panic.

Brandy: Oh, I won't say anything. Trust me.

Bonnie: Great. Brandy, I don't think that customer's been waited on yet. Less talk on the phone, please.

Brandy: Sorry. I'll take care of it right away.

Bonnie: Thank you.

Jessica: Now, there was a time when you thought a fuzzy navel was poor personal hygiene. And look at you running the place.

Bonnie: And loving it. Which is exactly why Isaac has got to get this whole license thing cleared up.

Jessica: He will, honey. And then we can all relax.

Jack: You know and I know that I have been feeling secretly responsible for Julia's sickness. But this last episode -- that cured me once and for all. Because what she turned into -- nobody could make you do that. You have to have that inside of you from the beginning. It's like a time bomb waiting to go off.

Carly: So you're letting yourself off the hook?

Jack: I've also checked with every highway patrol in the country. No one's seen hyde nor hair of Julia. She doesn't want to be found. So, as of this moment, I am done. Julia has no claim on me.

Carly: But a baby might. Admit it, Jack, that's why you were looking for Julia to find out if she's really pregnant or not.

Jack: No. No.

Carly: You're a good man. Good men make good fathers. And if a baby surfaces, you're not gonna turn your back on that.

Jack: It won't be an issue, Carly.

Carly: What makes you so sure?

Jack: Because the first time this morning, I was able to put my feelings aside and look at this situation like it was a case. I analyzed all the evidence. I isolated the facts. And I came to the conclusion that if I was to hand this case over to Jessica Griffin, you know what she'd do? She'd just throw it right back in my face.

Carly: What are you saying?

Jack: That all the evidence points to one thing -- Julia's lying. There is no baby.

Ben: Isaac is taken care of, and Bonnie is busy. So now it's time for you to take a deep breath and tell me what's got you so worried?

Jessica: What makes you think I'm worried?

Ben: I can see it in your eyes. It's like you're trying to see into tomorrow.

Jessica: Well, they are, actually. The opening day of the State versus Barbara Ryan, to be exact.

Ben: You're gonna be fine. Okay, Barbara made a full confession.

Jessica: Which Travers got thrown out.

Ben: Even so, his client left behind tons of incriminating evidence.

Jessica: I know, but -- he's subpoenaed half of Oakdale. And judging by the list, they're not all character witnesses. I'm just trying to figure out his angle.

Ben: I guess he's going for an acquittal.

Jessica: But it's outrageous! Barbara Ryan is guilty. She has admitted it. And I'm just trying to figure out how he's gonna convince a jury otherwise?

Ben: Smoke and mirrors I guess. Hey -- do not let this man work you. It looks like -- it looks like you're ready to throw in the towel before the trial's even started.

Jessica: It's not -- it's not just him. It's this whole past year. I mean, I've lost some high-profile cases -- Craig Montgomery.

Ben: Hey, hey, hey. That wasn't your fault. Nobody thought that he was innocent.

Jessica: Hal and Margo did, but I didn't listen. And then Abigail Williams -- her trial was a repeat of the same thing.

Ben: That wasn't even your case.

Jessica: But it's my office. And I could lose it. Ben, this is an election year. I love my job. But if this trial doesn't go well, I could be out.

Ben: Hey. You've been district attorney for what now? Almost three years? How many bad guys have you put away?

Jessica: But you're only as good as your last conviction. The powers that be are gonna be looking at this trial long and hard. The word has come down -- they want a conviction at any cost.

Ben: What they should want is what they have. They have a brilliant, sexy, ethical district attorney. So you can forget about all their demands, and you just keep doing what you know is right.

Jessica: Thank you, Dr. Harris. I don't know what I'd do without you.

Ben: I'm hoping that you never find out.

Marshall: What is it about Java underground that seems to inspire such unbridled passion?

Ben: It's not the place. It's the person.

Marshall: Now that's a theory I'd like to put to the test.

Lucy: You don't have to drive me. I have my license.

Rosanna: And we don't want to do anything that might make your father take it away. So, I'll drive you. And I can go and meet the parents. And then when Craig calls, I can tell him where you are and who you're with. That's my board member over there. So, I have one more meeting, and then I'll meet you at the Lakeview. Okay? Very nice to meet you, Alison.

Alison: Great. A chaperon for a party that doesn't exist. We are so dead.

Lucy: I'll think of something. Why don't you just go home and get changed and I'll be by in an hour?

Alison: We're still going to the keg party, right?

Lucy: I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Alison: Awesome. I'll call your cell if anything changes. Hey, boys.

Jeb: Alison. And you know my aim is true.

Alison: Oh, so you remember me?

Chase: Like we could ever forget. You and your friend coming to the Old mill tonight?

Alison: She just said she wouldn't miss it. In fact, she said she was really looking forward to seeing you there. Definite hookup potential.

Chase: Sweet.

Alison: See you guys later.

Aaron: You look a little stressed. Alison give you a hard time about tonight?

Lucy: Alison isn't the problem. It's Rosanna. I told her about some preppie party we were going to, and she decided to chaperon me.

Aaron: Oh, no way.

Lucy: Yeah, it's okay, though. I'm calling in reinforcements. You know Carly told us that she was on our side?

Aaron: Yeah.

Lucy: Well, tonight she's gonna get to prove it.

Jack: Think about it, Carly. Isn't it a lot more likely that this is just another one of Julia's sick mind games?

Carly: Well, whatever her game is, she always seems to win.

Jack: Yeah. Only because I've been so riddled with guilt, I haven't been able to think straight. When she told me she was pregnant, it was like I was her prisoner again. And then I saw you and Parker waving those sparklers around. And I don't know, something -- something snapped. You're here, Carly, and you're mine. I am not gonna let Julia run my life anymore.

Carly: But things have happened to us, Jack. Things that have changed us, changed how we see the world.

Jack: Yes, I know. I know. But can't we start our life from that point right there? From where we are today? Not from where we used to be, hmm? Can we do that?

Carly: No Julia.

Jack: And no Craig. Just us.

Carly: We can do that.

[Cell phone rings]

Jack: Hmm-mm, hmm-mm, hmm-mm. Don't answer that.

Carly: It might be about Parker, Jack. Hello?

Lucy: Carly, I need your help. Your sister Rosanna is ruining my life.

Carly: Could you hold on a second, please? It's this business call.

Jack: Ah, yes, I should probably check in with the station myself.

Carly: Hey, Lucy, what's the matter?

Lucy: Rosanna is trying out for the part of step mom. I told you how she promised my dad she'd watch out for me?

Carly: Yeah.

Lucy: She thinks that means she's to follow me everywhere. I have to lose her, and I don't know how. Can you help me, Carly? Please? Please, please, please, please?

Carly: Hold on a second.

Jack: I gotta get back to the station, honey. Are we okay?

Carly: Yeah.

Jack: Hmm?

Carly: We're wonderful. I love you so much.

Jack: Tell me all about it tonight, won't you? Here, this should cover the coffees. I'll see you later.

Carly: Okay. Be careful. Hi, Luce. Sorry about that. Listen, why don't you come by Java, and we'll try to figure something out?

Lucy: Thank you, Carly. Thank you so much.

Rosanna: That wasn't your dad, was it?

Lucy: No, just a friend.

Rosanna: Well, I'm sure he'll call later. Now, about that party -- I'm gonna go meet Lisa Grimaldi at Java underground, and then I'm all yours.

Lucy: Okay, see you at the Lakeview.

Rosanna: Okay. See you later.

Lucy: It's gonna be worth it. It's all gonna be worth it.

Emily: Very handsome, lt. Munson.

Hal: Oh. And you don't look so bad -- bad yourself. Wow. Wow. What happened to the peanut butter?

Emily: Oh, I don't know. I think Claudette replaced it with eau de something or another. You like it?

Hal: I love it. I love the hair. I love the dress. I love the -- I love the whole package.

Emily: And I love all the thought and planning you put into this evening. Because I know it couldn't have been easy to score all those opera tickets.

Hal: Oh, no, it wasn't. No.

Emily: Or get a last-minute reservation at a five-star restaurant.

Hal: Blackmail.

Emily: You know, I think the room service here's really good.

Hal: Are you suggesting something?

Emily: Mm, just that we stay in.

Hal: But tonight's for you. And you know -- a night on the town.

Emily: And I want to spend it in your arms.

Hal: Works for me.

Jessica: Ben, this is Marshall Travers.

Ben: Yeah, I remember. Ben Harris.

Marshall: That's Dr. Ben Harris, isn't it?

Ben: Mm-hmm.

Bonnie: Mom, I didn't know you were working.

Marshall: Sorry to interrupt your evening. I just thought I should let you know that I filed a petition for a change of venue.

Jessica: Based on?

Marshall: My belief that Barbara Ryan won't get a fair trial in Oakdale. The petition is extremely detailed. I just thought I'd give you a heads up. Professional courtesy.

Jessica: You're just full of surprises, aren't you, Mr. Travers?

Marshall: That's what my mother always said.

Jessica: Well, I've always been one to return a professional courtesy. So, let me give you a little friendly warning. I intend to fight to keep this trial in the town where your client's victims and their families live. And I will win.

Marshall: You're very confident.

Jessica: You filed the petition too late. It's highly unlikely a judge will grant it.

Marshall: True. I simply put things in motion in case I need to file an appeal.

Jessica: I thought you never lost. Is counsel being uncharacteristically pragmatic?

Marshall: I'm only counsel in the courtroom. Everywhere else, I'm Mr. Travers. Or, if you're a friend, simply Marshall. Which is what I hope you'll call me from now on.

Jessica: I don't think there's anything simple about you, Mr. Travers.

[Pager beeping]

Ben: That's me. I need to get back to the hospital.

Jessica: Okay.

Marshall: That's a shame. I was hoping I could buy us all a drink.

Ben: Not tonight. Jessica?

Jessica: I need to stay and have a -- a chat with Bonnie. I'll talk to you later?

Ben: Try and keep me from calling. You are gonna kick his tort, and he knows it, okay?

Jessica: "Tort"?

[Jessica laughs]

Ben: And his briefs.

Marshall: I didn't know district attorneys laughed.

Jessica: When something's funny.

Marshall: May I join you? See if it can inspire a little more mirth?

Bonnie: I will get you a seat right over there at the bar, Mr. Travers. But the one next to my mother is taken.

Lucy: It's like I'm on "survivor," and Rosanna's the audience. You know, I had more privacy in Montega.

Carly: My sister holds an invisible remote. Loves control, that one.

Lucy: She's gonna ruin the only chance that Aaron and I have to be alone for a very long time. Can you help us, Carly?

Carly: I could talk to her.

Lucy: That won't work. She'll still do exactly what my dad wants. I mean, we won't do anything wrong, I swear. We just want to be together.

Carly: I know, and I believe you. But I -- I can't lie to Rosanna about where you guys are.

Lucy: Well, could you just keep her busy for an hour?

Carly: I don't think that's a very good idea.

Lucy: You don't even have to go anywhere. She's right downstairs in a meeting.

Carly: With whom?

Lucy: Lisa Grimaldi.

Carly: Oh, look who's poaching now. On second thought, Lucy, I'd be glad to help you.

Rosanna: Wouldn't you like to reconsider keeping B.R.O. and fashions together?

Lisa: Well, I've already decided to go into business with Carly. I'm sure you know that. So going into business with Barbara is out of the question right now.

Rosanna: I thought you were her best friend.

Lisa: I am. I am. That's why she wanted me to get out of B.R.O. before it folded.

Rosanna: Well, that's not going to happen. See, I've offered to become Barbara's partner, and she's accepted. Wouldn't you like to come back? We'd love to have you back.

Lisa: But with Carly and --

Rosanna: Carly is unproven. She's had one good show in New York. Barbara has had dozens. B.R.O. Is going to become rock solid. Barbara's going to be acquitted. And she could really use your friendship right now.

Lisa: Oh, Rosanna, I've told you, she has a friend. That's me. Look, my problem is not with Barbara. It's with you.

Rosanna: With me?

Lisa: Yes. It's your association with Craig Montgomery, to be specific. I think that man is -- he is the main reason that my darling friend Barbara, is in this mess.

Rosanna: Well, you don't have to worry because I don't mix my business and personal lives.

Lisa: But, you see, they're one and the same with Mr. Wonderful. I don't know. Perhaps he didn't tell you that he -- he tried to steal B.R.O. from Barbara when they were married. So, as long as this man is in your life, I don't want any part of either one of you.

Brandy: Isaac has a meeting with the board tonight.

Marshall: Really? Special closed session?

Brandy: Yeah. Bonnie said her mother pulled some strings to get it for him. He's there right now pleading his case.

Marshall: Go on.

Man: I need -- I need change to make a phone call.

Brandy: All right. Let's see. Is two quarters and five dimes okay?

Man: Yeah. It's fine.

Bonnie: I can't stand that man. Why does he keep looking at us?

Jessica: It's part of his game, honey. Showing up in places where we hang out, making his presence known, trying to prove he's a big, bad shark tough enough to swim in hostile waters.

Bonnie: Well, Ian left me with a permanent distaste for predators. I'm gonna ask him to leave.

Jessica: No, no, no. That's okay. It's part of the game. Now, if I look intimidated, then he has the edge in the courtroom tomorrow. But if I look like I don't give a damn, then I have the edge.

Bonnie: What, where are you going?

Jessica: Oh, I have to prepare my response to his petition. By the way, sweetie, haven't you noticed? You mother eats shark for breakfast. See you later.

Bonnie: Bye.

Jessica: Bye, Brandy.

Bonnie: Uh, Lisa? I'm sorry to interrupt, but do you know how much longer your meeting's gonna last?

Lisa: Oh, why? Is something wrong, Bonnie?

Bonnie: Well, Isaac's actually right down there at the Liquor board pleading for Java's license.

Lisa: Oh, okay. I better get right down there. Would you excuse me, Rosanna?

Rosanna: Of course.

Brandy: I'll call as soon as I hear anything.

Bonnie: Brandy? We do have other customers.

Brandy: And I will get right to them.

Carly: Hey, sis. I never thought I'd hear myself say these words, but -- we need to talk.

Alison: Hey, are you on your way?

Lucy: I still need to go home and change. I'll be by in about 20 minutes.

Alison: Don't. I've already left. Just meet me at the Old mill.

Lucy: That's not what we planned.

[Making a shhing noise]

Alison: What?

[Making a shhing noise] I can't hear you. What did you say?

Lucy: I saw you do this to your mother, remember, Alison? I know all these tricks.

Alison oh.

[Making shhing noise] hurry up. I'm losing you. Hey, watch doing?

Aaron: I thought you went home.

Alison: And I came back. Are you off work yet?

Aaron: Yeah. Yeah, I'm out of here.

Alison: Oh, I'd love to go for a ride on your bike.

Aaron: Some other time.

Alison: What are you in such a hurry for? You got a date or something?

Aaron: Aren't you going to some party tonight?

Alison: Oh, keeping tabs on my social life.

Aaron: No, I just overheard you talking about it with some frat boys yesterday.

Alison: They're probably at the old mill right now waiting for me. But you know what? I'd rather hang out with you.

Aaron: I gotta go.

Alison: Oh, not if I don't let you.

Aaron: Alison, give me my helmet back.

Alison: I will -- right after we go for a swim.

Aaron: I don't have my swimsuit.

Alison: Me, either. What do you think? I knew I could change your mind about that swim.

Hal: I mean it, Emily. Come on, let's set a date. Let's set a date tonight.

Emily: Okay. All right. You're right. You're right. Let's do it. I will -- I'll call the church tomorrow morning and book the first available date.

Hal: You don't have to go through all that. I'll call the courthouse, book the first available judge. We'll ask a couple of friends and -- what?

Emily: Well, I -- I thought we were going to get married at church. I even asked Alison to be my maid of honor.

Hal: You did?

Emily: Yeah. I -- I mean, I say that I love her. But I can tell that she thinks it's just talk, so I made a gesture. I asked her to be my maid of honor. And she's so excited. Because, you know -- and Carly's gonna design her dress. So, what? What?

Hal: Making a fuss over Alison is gonna upset Susan.

Emily: Well, so what? It's my wedding. I can make a fuss over whoever I want.

Hal: Actually, em -- it's our wedding. And I kinda hadn't planned on the whole church/reception magilla. You know, I've been there, and I've done that.

Emily: Oh. Oh, I'm so sorry. I didn't even think about that. I am so sorry.

Hal: Hey, let it go. Look, if I can sit through an opera to make you happy, I guess I can stand up in a church to make you my wife.

Emily: And write our own vows?

Hal: Now you're pushing it.

[Hal laughs]

Emily: "I, Emily Stewart, vow to listen to my husband's advice, even the stuff I can't stand about Alison and my mother. And I hereby vow to do everything in my power to keep their fights out of our home."

Hal: "And I, Hal Munson, promise to reach out to Alison, that little twerp, whenever I can." And now I'm gonna kiss the bride very hard and very quickly.

Emily: Okay. Wait, wait. Would you like to see my version of "night at the opera"?

Hal: Oh, yeah.

Aaron: Alison, stop being such a pain.

Alison: Oh, spoilsport. Loosen up. Marco? See, I say "Marco," and you're supposed to say --

Aaron: I'm not playing.

Alison: Oh, yes you are.

Aaron: Cut it out. I don't have all night.

Alison: What? Do you have somewhere better to go?

Lucy: Aaron? Alison? Alison, where are you?

Chase: Lucy, right? I'm glad you made it. Do you want a beer?

Jeb: Well, if you don't like beer, you know, we've got other stuff.

Lucy: No, thanks. I'm just waiting for someone.

Chase: I make a good friend.

Lucy: I said, "no, thanks."

Chase: Yeah, but you didn't mean it. Come on inside.

Lucy: What for?

Chase: So Jeb and I can teach you a new course.

Jeb: Yeah -- Partying 101.

Chase: Come on, pretty thing.

Marshall: Look, I don't want to alarm you, but keep your eye on that guy that keeps asking for change. He's behaving strangely.

Bonnie: He's not the problem. You are.

Marshall: You and I have a problem?

Bonnie: Yes, actually. You come in here every night looking around. If you see my mother, you get right in her face. And, frankly, I don't appreciate it.

Marshall: I came here out of kindness. You know what your mother would have looked tomorrow morning in that courtroom if she didn't know about the petition I filed? Besides, I thought we had a deal. As long as I keep things strictly business, you'd put up with me.

Bonnie: Well, if this is how you conduct "business," you're not welcome here, Mr. Travers. Good-bye.

Marshall: Well, I hope you mean good night. Because, legally, I'm allowed to have a drink as long as I'm not unruly -- which I never am -- and properly attired -- which I always am. See, this is America -- same law for everybody, even duchesses.

Carly: So, you tried to woo Lisa away from me and back to B.R.O., huh? Isn't that a little bit like Goliath getting his friends together to help bring David down?

Rosanna: Let's not get biblical. I don't have time to fight.

Carly: Look, I'm not upset that you tried to get Lisa. Really. In fact, I'm a -- I'm a little flattered.

Rosanna: So it's all about you, hmm? Why am I not surprised? Good-bye.

Carly: Look, Rosanna -- before you go, I -- I need a favor.

Rosanna: You're kidding, right?

Carly: Well -- Parker's been going through this -- this phase. And, as much as I hate to admit this, he keeps asking for his aunt Rosanna.

Rosanna: He's asking for me?

Carly: Insisting, actually. I've tried everything, but he still wants French fries with you.

Rosanna: Well, once I figured out how he liked them, we really had a good time together.

Carly: So, could -- would you pick him up from his playmate and bring him out for some? It'll only take an hour. And you'll make him so happy.

Rosanna: Well, I would love to.

Carly: Oh, good. Good.

Rosanna: But I can't. I -- I have to drive Lucy someplace.

Carly: Lucy's 16. Doesn't she have a driver's license?

Rosanna: Well, I told Craig that I would look after her.

Carly: That's noble.

Rosanna: It's called keeping your word. I don't expect you to understand it. So tell Parker I'll -- I'll see him tomorrow.

Carly: Rosanna --

Rosanna: I have to go.

Marshall: Since I never like to make a lady feel uncomfortable, I'll go. Thanks for your hospitality.

Bonnie: It was an effort.
