Rose: The thought of those thugs just beating you up, it just makes me crazy.

Paul: I wasn't hurt - badly.

Rose: And now I'm yelling at you for coming down here after me. I swear, I'll never leave you again. Never, ever, ever, ever, I mean it.

Paul: Good, that sounds good by me. And I have no intention of leaving this hell-hole until we find your father. Hmm?

Rose: You're a dream. You know that? Now, just tell me the truth.

Paul: Okay.

Rose: Aren't you a little bit -- little bit, you know, sorry that I came into your life? I mean, I'm like a four-tire blowout on the New Jersey turnpike.

Paul: Never. My life before you was neurotic fashionistas and business ledgers. I've climbed a few mountains, but being stuck here with you -- I'd do it a hundred times over just for this.

Lucinda: And if this Donovon Curry, or whatever his name is, is really gone, and he's flown the coop, then maybe we should split up. You could move your things back into your room, and then my room could return to some semblance of normalcy.

Katie: I guess I'm not the best roommate in the world, am I?

Lucinda: Ah -- your nocturnal habits are not ideal.

Katie: Sorry. I just couldn't sleep. I kept tossing and turning, thinking about Simon. Where is he? What's happening to him? I mean, what are they doing -- that Donovon Curry is the only one who has that information. If he took off, and he took off with that information, we should've tried to deal with him or just make some sort of deal.

Lucinda: Darling, how could we make a deal with him? You know, we had hurt his male vanity. He's not going to give us Simon and Joe for the provenance.

Katie: Why not, though? It's so stupid! It doesn't make sense. Doesn't he need the provenance to prove that the diamond's worth something?

Lucinda: He needs the provenance, but he's been outfoxed and humiliated by three silly women. He's gone off. He's taken off to lick his wounds someplace.

Katie: So what do we do now? Just sit here again and again? I just feel so helpless just sitting here.

Lucinda: Right. But that's what we're gonna do - keep our heads down and wait. Waiting is the hardest thing there is. So we'll just wait and make sure that the provenance is safe in the safe, 'cause it's our insurance. Hmm?

Katie: I just wonder where Simon is right now.

Desi: Stop, thief, come back! He tried to break into the safe!

Katie: Safe? You are not getting away with this! Henry?! What the hell are you trying to do to us?!

Isaac: Are you okay? Do you want a drink or - ?

Margo: No. Really, no. But, you know, would you mind if I just - can I just hang here for a little while?

Isaac: Yeah. Yeah. Just let me know if you need anything.

Margo: Okay. What are you guys, bloodhounds?

Tom: If that's what we have to be for you, yes.

Margo: I told you - look, I really - I don't want to even talk about this anymore. John, you really oughta find out which lab made the mistake, huh?

John: There is no mistake. It is conclusive, you have Hepatitis C.

Margo: Oh, it's impossible. There's no way that --

Tom: Hey -- if you don't want to believe the blood tests, at least believe what your body's telling you.

Margo: Honey, this is really nothing that a leave of absence wouldn't take care of.

John: Margo, you're the one who said you were tired, who's been suffering from pain for quite some time now.

Tom: The woman that fell apart at Barbara's trial - that's not you, honey. We have to face this.

Margo: All right, that reminds me, I - I gotta get back to the courthouse.

Tom: Please - please stop. Stop running away from this.

Emily: Jessica had me on the stand testifying for the prosecution, but Barbara's attorney made me feel like I was testifying for the defense.

Carly: I hate to say it, but that guy is good.

Lily: He's crafty, the way he twists everything around.

Carly: I bet Rose wouldn't have let him get away with it.

Lily: Oh, I don't know about that. He can push your buttons. He pushes the wrong one, and Rose would explode.

Jack: Which is bad news any way you cut it.

Carly: How can you stay so calm?

Jack: Deep breaths. And I count to ten before each answer. You listening, Hal?

Hal: I hear you. I guess we'd better get back in there.

Emily: Good luck.

Carly: You, too.

Jack: I know how much this means to you, Carly. I'll do the best I can.

Carly: I know you will.

Emily: I hate to say this, girls, but given how this trial's going, Barbara could walk. And if that happens, I do not know what I'm gonna do.

Carly: Well, even if Barbara does manage to slither out of this thing, it doesn't make her innocent. She is as guilty as the day is long, and she will pay for it - one way or another.

Marshall: Ladies - I hope that's not a threat. If it is, I hope you'll reconsider.

Carly: We have no need to threaten your poor client. She's gonna have it rough enough trying to live her whole life knowing the horrible things she's done.

Emily: Let's go back in the courtroom, shall we, girls? If he wants to take potshots, let him put us back on the stand.

Marshall: Don't let them get to you, either. True - after the trial is over, you won't be the most popular gal in town, but you'll be free.

Barbara: Has it ever occurred to you for even one second that you might be wrong?

Marshall: And where does that get us?

Barbara: Maybe all your fancy footwork will backfire. And not only will I be the most hated gal in town, I'll also be a convicted felon.

Marshall: For the last time, you're not going to jail. I'm preparing our case for the defense, and when I unveil our Trojan horse --

Barbara: Oh, please. You used up your drama allowance when you passed out those stones to the angry townsfolk. There is no Trojan horse. There is no secret weapon. Oh, my God. Don't tell me you're bringing James Steinbeck into the courtroom.

Marshall: Just trust me, okay?

Margo: I am not running away from anything. I would know if there is any way that I could have contracted Hepatitis C. It's not conceivable.

John: No, no, here is what we know -- when the Hepatitis C enzymes assays are positive, the diagnosis is not up for grabs.

Tom: Now, your test results show that you have high levels of the Hepatitis C virus in your blood. You've been resistant to the idea that there's anything seriously wrong with you.

John: But now we know there is. We're looking straight into the teeth of chronic Hepatitis C and we're gonna have to deal with it.

Tom: You have to go to the hospital with me. We need a strategy. We need it right away, and your dad's gonna help us figure out what that is.

Margo: All right, even if I do have this thing - and I still don't think I do. Today's - I have got so many things to do. I can't do this today.

Tom: You are hard as nails. And that makes me so proud, but you've gotta take care of yourself. Let the people that love you help - please. Please come to the hospital with me, before any more time slips away.

Margo: You know what? All right, I'm gonna do this just to prove to both of you that you are so wrong.

Katie: Don't even think about lying to me, you cheating little rodent!

Henry: Hey.

Katie: You were after that provenance, weren't you?

Henry: Yeah, okay, all right, fine, I heard you talking about it to Desi and how you stole it back and put it in the safe.

Katie: Oh, I'm gonna wring your scrawny little neck!

Henry: No, no, no, don't do that.

Katie: That provenance is the only leverage we have to get Simon and Joe back, do you understand that? Now, you're just thinking about yourself. We are talking lives here, Henry, not livelihood.

Henry: What do you mean, "get Simon back"?

Katie: Remember those pictures we found?

Henry: Yeah.

Katie: The ones with the diagram for plastic surgery? They were real. That look-alike Simon is not only a fake, he is a monster, Henry. His name is Donovon Curry. He knows where Simon and Joe are, and he wants the provenance, too. Ha, big surprise. So as long as we have it, he has a little bit of a reason to keep Simon and Joe and all of us alive, get it?

Lucinda: Katie, Katie, do you feel it necessary to share every detail with this swine? I'm gonna call the Police!

Henry: No, no!

Lucinda: Desi, call the Police!

Henry: Wait, wait.

Lucinda: You're gonna find out that Police custody in Avanya is a special experience.

Henry: Katie, no, tell her this is a very bad idea. Lucinda, no!

Katie: You almost ruined everything, Henry! Your stupid little stunt could've cost us Rose's dad and put Simon in who knows what kind of danger. So you're gonna make it up to us.

Henry: How?

Katie: By making yourself useful.

Lucinda: Oh.

Simon: Joe - come on, man. Come on, you gotta drink some water.

Joe: Stop.

Simon: You have to --

Joe: Stop.

Simon: Joe, come on.

Joe: It's too late for me. You get yourself out of here. Find my Rose. Make sure she's safe.

Simon: Come on, come on, come on. Stop talking like that, all right? You gotta hang in there, all right? We're gonna find a way out of here -- somehow.

Marshall: Please tell us what happened after you brought Barbara back to the Police station.

Hal: After first refusing to answer any questions, she decided to make a confession.

Marshall: With or without the benefit of counsel?

Hal: She waived her right to counsel.

Jessica: Objection - the confession in question was already deemed inadmissible, thanks to a motion by Mr. Travers himself. I fail to see how it has any bearing right now.

Judge: Where are you going with this, Mr. Travers?

Marshall: If your honor and my esteemed colleague will bear with me, it goes to show the credibility of this witness.

Judge: I'm only prepared to "bear with you" for so long, so make it quick.

Marshall: Lieutenant -- you had a conversation with my client prior to her delivering this so-called "confession." Isn't that so?

Hal: Yes.

Marshall: And did this talk encourage her to make a confession without benefit of counsel?

Hal: I suppose it could have.

Marshall: Please, tell us if there were any conditions attached to what you said.

Hal: I told her that she couldn't see our son unless she came clean.

Marshall: In other words, you coerced a confession.

Hal: I wouldn't call it coercion.

Marshall: Telling her she couldn't see her son if she didn't confess --

Hal: I was trying to protect our son!

Marshall: Protect your son or punish the woman who dumped you for another man?

[Crowd gasps]

Jessica: Objection, your honor!

Judge: Sustained.

Marshall: I withdraw the last question. Lieutenant -- in previous testimony, you stated that you care deeply for Ms. Ryan. Does that mean that you kept close tabs on her after her arrest?

Hal: I tried to.

Marshall: You tried? You weren't successful?

Hal: I wasn't always available.

Marshall: In fact, you were hospitalized in a psychiatric ward, weren't you?

Jessica: Objection, your honor. I fail to see how Lieutenant Munson's medical history has any bearing here.

Judge: I disagree, Ms. Griffin. The witness will answer.

Hal: I was under the influence of a type of post-hypnotic suggestion commonly known as brainwashing. I needed time to recover.

Marshall: And who had you programmed, lieutenant?

Hal: James Steinbeck.

Marshall: I see. We heard earlier in testimony that you facilitated his escape from the hospital. Is this hypnotic suggestion why you were induced to help Mr. Steinbeck?

Hal: Yes. And obviously, anything that I did was against my will. I did not want to help him.

Marshall: Really? Sounds frighteningly familiar. Yet here you sit - free as a bird. Isn't there someone else in this courtroom who was forced to aid and abet Mr. Steinbeck against her will?

Jessica: Objection -- counsel is calling for a conclusion on part of the witness.

Judge: Mr. Travers, please rephrase.

Marshall: Certainly, your honor. Lieutenant -- isn't Barbara Ryan just another one of James Steinbeck's unwitting victims, just as you were? Just as Carly Tenney, Emily Stewart and Rose D'Angelo were, as well? Please - answer the question. Do you believe that Barbara Ryan was used by James Steinbeck to accomplish his own ends?

Hal: I believe that Barbara - is a victim, yes.

Marshall: Thank you.

Hal: But there is a difference -

Marshall: Thank you.

Hal: - Between what she did and what I did.

Marshall: Thank you!

Hal: She had a choice.

Marshall: I have one more question. Do you believe Barbara Ryan is a dangerous criminal who should be put away for the rest of her life?

Hal: No, I do not believe that.

[Crowd gasps]

Judge: Order. Order! Order in the court. Order!

Hal: Emily, I had to answer the question as it was put to me. I had to tell the truth. I'm sorry if I hurt you.

Emily: All right, here's the problem, Hal. If Barbara gets off scot-free, how am I gonna live with the fact that you helped make that happen?

Hal: You heard me, Emily. I tried to say more. I tried to say how Barbara made the choice to be Steinbeck's pawn, but this guy - Emily, we have to talk about this.

Emily: No, not now. I can't even believe what you did in there. I gotta go.

Hal: Em --

Marshall: Didn't you trade her for your girlfriend? You sent her off to a man you knew to be dangerous - used her to protect yourself.

Jessica: Objection, your honor. Counsel is drawing conclusions for the witness that are entirely contrary to the very heart of his testimony.

Jack: That's not exactly how it happened.

Marshall: In the fun house, when there was a gun pointed at your head, you allowed Barbara Ryan to trade her life for your own.

Jessica: Objection, your honor.

Judge: Overruled. The witness will answer the question.

Jack: As I said, that's not exactly how it happened.

Marshall: Which part is incorrect -- that you traded your girlfriend for the woman you'd come to despise or that you allowed my client to trade her life for your own?

Jack: I had to make a judgment call, Mr. Travers. Your client -

Marshall: The fact is that you sold Barbara out, isn't it? To save your own hide!

Carly: Stop it! You're twisting everything around to make him look bad! Just cut that out!

Judge: Order! Order in the court. Order!

Katie: Guess what, Henry? You're gonna find Simon and Joe for us.

Henry: How am I supposed to do that?

Katie: Well, first, you're gonna find Donovon Curry, and then you're gonna follow him, and hopefully that will lead you to them.

Henry: No, wait, wait, wait. You want me to follow the guy that you -- what'd you just say, he wouldn't hesitate to shred us like ribbons? No, no, no. No, I don't think so.

Lucinda: Wait a minute. Wait just a moment, my friend, you reprobate. You represent our last, best hope.

Henry: Well, I'm sorry, if you're so keen on following a walking cuisinart, Lucinda, do it yourself.

Lucinda: No, can't do it. Both Katie and I, he knows us by sight.

Henry: Then send Jersey princess over there.

Lucinda: No -- Rose, too. Only you. Only you can do this undetected. And if he knows you, fine, you don some manly disguise.

Henry: Okay, remind me. Remind me, please, I forget -- what is in this scheme for me?

Lucinda: Have you lost your hearing, too? I'm giving you a "get out of jail" card free - unless you want to go into Police custody, if you prefer sadists and mice and gruel.

Henry: Okay, no, no. Lucinda, I've acquired a bit of an overhead while I've been down here. Some living expenses, perhaps?

Lucinda: This is no time for lengthy negotiations. I shall be most generous.

Henry: Okay, all right. Then -- sure, I'll follow this Donovon person, and hopefully, his ribbon-shredding days are over.

Katie: Oh, come on, Henry, just stop complaining. Let's go find Desi. He'll find something to fit you, and you'll be perfectly safe.

Henry: Yeah.

Katie: I hope.

Lucinda: Not a dress, please.

Margo: John -John, look, you gotta read your own literature here. Look at this. It says very clearly that this virus is transmitted through contaminated needles, iv drug use, tattooing. I am not at risk of this disease.

John: You're absolutely right, Margo. Needles are by far the most common and efficient way to transmit it, but there are other ways.

Margo: I know, you're talking about sexual transmission, and you're talking about Tom having given this to me, and that's just - that's not possible.

Tom: We also know that I don't have it. I had myself tested soon after John started talking about Hepatitis C.

Margo: You didn't tell me that?

Tom: Well, you didn't want to talk about being sick at all - not to mention how you may have gotten that way.

John: It is possible to be infected through sex - when there is an exchange of blood.

Margo: I'm sorry, you're losing me here.

John: The sexual activity would have had to have been unusual, rough - violent, even.

Margo: Oh, my God, you're talking about the rape!

Margo: You both knew, didn't you? You - you both knew that I got Hepatitis when I was raped and you didn't say any - anything.

Tom: It's been so long since we've even spoken about it, not to mention everything that happened afterwards. How - how could I bring it up?

Margo: Why, I'm that hard to talk to?

John: Well, I think what Tom is saying is he hoped perhaps you might realize it yourself on some level, and bring it up.

Margo: It's been - it's been so long. Why haven't I had any symptoms?

John: Sometimes the virus can remain dormant for long periods of time. That's what makes it so insidious.

Margo: Why wasn't I tested for this after I was raped?

John: Hospitals weren't routinely testing for Hepatitis C ten years ago. We weren't even thinking about it much back then.

Margo: I don't - I don't believe this. I hear your words. I'm looking at your face, but it's not sinking in.

Tom: I know this is a blow. But we know what this is and you can be treated.

[Margo crying]

Margo: All right. What do I do now? I -- I take this drug, this - this interferon? And then, I swear to God I'll never have another glass of wine the rest of my life, right?

John: In your case, it may not be that simple.

Lucinda: Hey, what are you supposed to be?

Henry: I don't know. I don't know.

Katie: You look fine.

Henry: I saw this on some G.I. Joe doll once.

Katie: It's perfect, Henry. You look fine. This country's crawling with soldiers. Donovon's less likely to notice you in - that. Just be sure not to set off anything on that utility belt.

Henry: Are you sure there's no other way that I can help you two?

Lucinda: You had your orders, private! On your way! March, march! I had a good home and I left. Two, three, four. I had a good home and I left.

Henry: I had a good home and I left.

Lucinda: Right, left, right, left.

Carly: What is wrong with you?!

[Judge pounds gavel]

Bailiff: Order.

Carly: How can you sit there and allow him to twist everything around like that?!

Judge: Take your seat, Ms. Tenney. Or you'll be answering a contempt citation from the inside of a jail cell. Sit down!

Lily: Carly --

Carly: Look, I'm sorry, but this is not fair!

Jack: Mr. Travers was partially correct. I did allow Barbara to go with James. But I didn't do it to save my own hide. I did it to protect Carly Tenney and my lieutenant, Hal Munson.

Marshall: I have no further questions. This witness is excused.

Jack: You shouldn't have done that.

Carly: I'm sorry. I just - I couldn't sit here and listen to him make you sound like some kind of a self -

Jack: I get - I get why you're upset, Carly. But, no more. You could blow this case against Barbara and you'd never forgive yourself.

Judge: Your next witness, Ms. Griffin?

Jessica: Your honor, the State rests.

Judge: Mr. Travers, I assume that you'll want to recess for the remainder of the day?

Marshall: No, your honor. My client and I are anxious to proceed. The defense calls Lily Snyder to the stand.

Lily: Rose had been kidnapped, Paul and I were at our wits' end. I thought if I'd dressed up like Rose, I could get Barbara to admit what she had done.

Marshall: In other words, you conspired with Barbara's own son to trick her.

Lily: My sister was missing. I had to find her.

Marshall: Were you not aware that Barbara Ryan was emotionally unstable after her devastating accident?

Lisa: We were all aware that she was having some emotional problems at that time.

Marshall: Did you refer her to a psychiatrist?

Lisa: Ah, well, she hardly ever returned any of my phone calls.

Marshall: Yes or no? Did you take your friend by the hand and try to get some help for her?

Bob: No, I did not refer Barbara to a psychiatrist. It's been my experience that psychotherapy is only successful when the patient is a willing participant.

Marshall: So, you did nothing - you, who are supposedly her friend.

Bob: I'm her family.

Marshall: Were you aware that Barbara Ryan was taking painkillers, possibly more than prescribed?

Kim: Well, yes, I became aware that she was taking painkillers. Her burns were so severe, she needed some kind of relief. But she insisted that she wasn't abusing them.

Marshall: And you believed her?

Kim: Well, I was concerned. I - I had my doubts. But I -

Marshall: Were you aware of the troubled relationship Barbara had with her grown son? That she was estranged from her husband and from her other children?

Kim: Yes. Yes, of course. I knew, she shut everybody off.

Marshall: You sat by and did nothing?

Kim: Well --

Marshall: You sat there and did nothing, and allowed this vulnerable, injured, debilitated woman, obviously suffering from emotional and physical distress, to fall under the sway of a vicious criminal.

Kim: But, how was I to know that James Steinbeck was involved? How could I know that?

Marshall: You might have known if you'd hadn't abandoned your own niece!

Kim: I beg your pardon. She shut us out!

Marshall: Isn't it true that you told other friends that you thought you failed Barbara?

Kim: Yes, of course.

Marshall: Don't you feel that way now?

Kim: I felt I had failed her. I felt we all had.

Marshall: That will be all, Ms. Hughes. Thank you.

Judge: Ms. Griffin, do you have any further questions for this witness?

Jessica: I would just like to remind the court that the witnesses are not on trial here today.

Judge: You may save that for your summation.

Jessica: Then no, I have no questions for this witness.

Judge: You may step down, Ms. Hughes.

Kim: Thank you.

Marshall: Your honor, I'd like a brief moment just to consult with my client. It's the home stretch, now, Barbara.

Barbara: What does that mean?

Marshall: You're about to see why you're paying me the big bucks.

Judge: Mr. Travers, I trust you're ready to proceed now.

Marshall: Yes, I am, your honor. The defense calls Jessica Griffin to the stand.


Margo: What do you mean, it's worse for me?

John: Well, your physical examination showed that you have an enlarged liver. This may mean that the virus is not remaining dormant. If it has indeed attacked a vital organ, it could certainly explain some of the symptoms that you've had - exhaustion, pain and even the "foggy brain" you experienced in court this afternoon.

Margo: All right. Then we gotta make sure, right?

John: Yes. I want to do a sonogram. I want to do a liver biopsy. It can tell us exactly how much the liver may have been scarred.

Tom: And if it's badly scarred?

John: It could mean cirrhosis.

Margo: Cirrhosis? Winos get that!

John: I know people who don't touch a drop who develop this condition after chronic Hepatitis C. Drinking exacerbates the condition, so you're a teetotaler from here on out, you understand that?

Margo: So, um, what if there is a lot of scarring?

John: We do this one step at a time, all right? Come on, come on, all right? I'm gonna see if the room's ready. And we're going to take very good care of you. I promise.

Margo: Oh, it's all happening again, Tom. It's all happening again - the attack, the rape.


Jessica: Your honor, this is highly irregular.

Judge: You did, in due process, receive a subpoena from the defense, did you not, Miss Griffin?

Jessica: Yes, but I never in my wildest imagination thought he would act on it. I mean, this is absurd. I'm prosecuting his client.

Marshall: Who's charged with a very serious crime. Which is exactly why I'd like to outline for the jury my client's treatment at the hands of the district attorney. It goes to the very heart of our case. Your honor, my client's freedom - her life is at stake.

Judge: I'll allow it. But I must warn you, Mr. Travers, you are treading on very thin ice.

Marshall: Understood. I request that Miss Griffin be treated as a hostile witness.

Judge: Duly noted. Miss Griffin, please take the stand.

Bailiff: Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?

Jessica: Yes, of course. I do.

Marshall: A few months ago, Miss Griffin, in your capacity as district attorney, you suffered a widely publicized defeat, didn't you?

Jessica: To what are you referring?

Marshall: The attempted murder case against Craig Montgomery.

Jessica: The State did not get a conviction in that case, yes.

Marshall: That's highly unusual with eye-witness testimony, isn't it?

Jessica: Well, that testimony turned out to be false.

Marshall: And on whose false eye-witness testimony did your case hinge?

Jessica: Barbara Ryan's.


Marshall: That must have made you quite angry to find out your star witness was unreliable.

Jessica: You mean she lied under oath?

Marshall: Please answer my question. Did you or did you not have negative feelings toward Barbara Ryan after she lost you the Montgomery case?

Jessica: I have always conducted myself in an impartial and professional manner.

Marshall: Really?

Jessica: Yes.

Marshall: Even when you allowed my client to make a statement without an attorney present? As you sat by silently when the Police used her, miserably, for their own ends? Even now as you pursue her instead of the man who victimized her?

Jessica: Is there a question somewhere in the midst of this tirade, Mr. Travers?

Marshall: Let's not mince words, Miss Griffin. You hate Barbara Ryan because she lost you the biggest case of your career, and now it's time to even the score.

Paul: Joe is gonna be fine. You'll see.

Rose: Thank you for believing in a life with my pop in it.

Lucinda: Oh, you're feeling better, Paul?

Paul: Yeah. Hey, Lucinda.

Rose: Do my eyes deceive me or were you talking to Henry Coleman?

Katie: He tried to steal the provenance from the safe.

Rose: Did you call the Police? I mean, not that I'd trust those people any more than I trust that parasite.

Lucinda: Relax. Relax, Rose. We're putting him to good use in exchange for not dropping him in a dank, dark dungeon.

Katie: He will be following Donovon Curry.

Rose: The anti-Simon?

Katie: Yes. And with any luck, we believe that he'll lead him to your dad and Simon.

Paul: All right, well, then I'm following him. I don't trust that --

Rose: No, no. Next time you try to play the hero, I'm gonna sit on you.

Paul: You can't honestly put your faith in Henry Coleman?

Rose: Henry Coleman? You know what? He would turn his mother in for 10 bucks and a martini.

Katie: That's true. But what other choice do we have?

"Simon": Ah. I'm here to spring one of your charges.

[Jailer speaking Spanish]

Jailer: Think it's wise to have this one free and walking about?

"Simon": Not that one, genius. The old man. Come on, get him up! Chop, chop!

Jailer: Oye, you, hombre. Get over there and keep your hands up, where I can see them.

Simon: How's Katie? Is she all right?

Jailer: Oye -- silencio!

"Simon": Yeah. Oh, no, the cute little blonde's doing well. Thanks for asking. Very well, in fact. I left her lying there with a smile about this wide.

Simon: What did you do to her?

"Simon": To her? Nothing. With her? Well -- I guess you were wrong when you said that she would know it wasn't you in bed with her. That little sigh she makes? Ahh. It means more, right? Give me more, big boy.

Jailer: One more time -- one more time, and you're dead! Now stay there! Don't move!

"Simon": Come on. Get him up.

Jailer: Come on, viejo. Come on, let's go. Come on. Get up. Come on.

Simon: Hang in there, Joe. Be strong, mate. Just hang in there! Come on, just be decent enough to get the man to a hospital!

"Simon": Yeah, sure. I'll -- I'll put it on my to-do list.

Simon: Get him help, all right?! Just get the man some help!

Henry: Psst!

Simon: Go away.

Henry: Quit moping around, Simon!

Simon: Henry?

Henry: Yeah. Who else do you think would be crazy enough to don this outfit and then just walk into a third world prison?

Simon: I never in my life thought I'd be actually glad to see you.

Katie: Oh, my God -- he's here.

"Simon": Oy, you two. Lovebirds. Get in here now.

[Rose groans]

"Simon": All right. So you wanna make a deal?

Katie: Uh, yes. We will give you the provenance in exchange for Simon and Joe.

"Simon": No, I don't think so. That's boring. Uh -- all right, here's how it's gonna go down. Since I've got the old man --

Rose: Pop? You got him? Is he okay? How is he? Where is he?

"Simon": You finished? Good. All right, since I've got the old man, I'm giving you 24 hours to bring me the provenance and the diamond.

Rose: Or what?

"Simon": Or your pop comes to a very slow and painful end.

Margo: Isn't this like -- this is like the longest joke ever told, a ten-year punch-line. Do you remember how we waited, how we worried that that man had given me HIV? And then, the relief -- the relief that we felt when we found out that I didn't get it from him.

Tom: Well, of course I remember.

Margo: He did it. Got me after all, didn't he?

Tom: We have not lost this thing.

Marshall: It's your personal hatred of Barbara Ryan that allowed you and Oakdale's hapless, prejudiced Police force not to go after the real perpetrator here, isn't it?

Jessica: No. We had sufficient evidence to implicate Barbara Ryan in these kidnappings.

Marshall: Sure. Evidence that was most likely planted by James Steinbeck.

Jessica: Who will be prosecuted once he's found.

Marshall: Why go after him when you've got Barbara Ryan in your hot little hands? Why, she's everyone's favorite pariah.

Jessica: That's not true.

Marshall: It's not? She embarrassed you publicly. Now it's your chance to show her a thing or two.

Jessica: Your honor, I have objections. We need to approach the bench.

And for that reason, I move that these proceedings be declared a mistrial.
