John: It is imperative that everyone know what the deal is here now. Margo needs a liver transplant. I'm not talking about next week or the week after. She needs it now.

Katie: Realistically, how much time does she have?

Bob: We can't give you a number, Kate. But John's right. We have to make some critical decisions very quickly.

John: This carcinoma continues to be a source of severe destruction.

Katie: That's the cancer you were talking about?

John: Yes. So the transplant is our only option.

Chris: I know you've already put in a request to the donor network.

Bob: U.N.O.S. has been notified of our need. Of course, we're on the waiting list.

Katie: What's U.N.O.S.?

Chris: The United Network for Organ Sharing.

Katie: Well, do they realize how urgent Margo's situation is?

Bob: Katie, every candidate on the list is a worthy case. The hospital is looking for a cadaveric donor.

Abigail: That's a liver from someone who's already dead, right?

John: Yes, but at this late hour, the odds do not appear good. They're not good for us, which means they're not good for Margo.

Aaron: Detective Hughes?

[Knocking lightly] it's me, Aaron Snyder. Anybody home? Casey? Mr. Hughes?

Tom: Margo!

Aaron: Hi.

Tom: Aaron?

Aaron: Your door was open.

Tom: Where's Margo?

Aaron: I don't know. I called her out. I don't think anybody's home.

Tom: What the hell are you doing in my house?

Aaron: I wasn't doing anything. I -- your door was open.

Tom: And you're sure Margo's not here?

Aaron: I don't think so.

[Cell phone ringing]

Tom: Yeah. I understand. I will be right there. Margo was rushed back to the hospital.

Aaron: Mr. Hughes, I'm real sorry --

Tom: You know what? I want you to leave right now. I'm not sure why you're in my house. But I don't have time -

Lucy: I used to love you. But you're not that person anymore. And I don't want to have anything to do with you.

[Knock at door] besides, with me gone, you'll have more time for your girlfriend. I would say "your tramp," but that wouldn't be polite.

Craig: Sierra?

Sierra: I thought it was time I got involved.

Craig: What are you --

Sierra: Oh, sweetheart. Looks like I got here just at the right time. Oh, sweetie. I could hear Lucy through the door. Something about a tramp? I guess I'm not the tramp that you were expecting.

Lucy: I'm sorry, mom. I thought you were Rosanna again.

Sierra: Rosanna?

Craig: As --

Lucy: Rosanna Cabot. Daddy's new -- whatever.

Craig: I told you I was seeing somebody, but that's not the issue here. The issue is what Lucy and I were just talking about.

Sierra: I really want to hear more about that. You know, I really wanted to believe that the two of you would find a solution to your problems on your own --

Craig: We're -- we're working on it. And we will figure something out.

Sierra: Do you feel the same way, sweetheart?

Lucy: No.

Craig: Well, maybe you don't right now. You didn't have to come all this way just because of something Lily told you.

Sierra: I haven't spoken to Lily. She's not the one who called me this time.

Craig: Who did?

Sierra: Carly.

Jack: Take a look at this mutt. I'd love to collar this guy.

Carly: Hey, how 'bout this one? "Milltown listing, large, elegant Victorian. Wraparound porch."

Jack: Looks haunted.

Carly: Yes, exactly, Jack. That's the point. A Halloween wedding -- you and me, 100 of our closest friends all in costumes, candles lit everywhere. "Hurricane Carly and Detective Jack finally wed."

Jack: Hey, you want a Halloween wedding, you got one.

Carly: Can I kiss you while you're on duty?

Jack: Well, since we're officially engaged, it'd be a crime not to. Hey, Lily, what's going on?

Lily: I just got a phone call from Worldwide. The situation in Avanya is totally out of control. I tried to call down there. I can't get through. And they say this hurricane is gonna destroy the whole entire island! I just saw it on the news.

Carly: Rose? She's still there?

Lily: Rose is there and my mother and Joe and Simon and Paul Ryan and --

Carly: Sit down, please. Here.

Jack: The coast guard would be our best bet. I'll call and see what they've got.

Carly: Hey, can I get you some water or something? I hate to see you this upset.

Lily: How can I not be? Half my family could be wiped out, and there's nothing that I can do about it!

Henry: Oh, you might as well use a teacup!

Lucinda: Keep bailing! Keep bailing! Pump, kid, pump! Both arms!

Henry: Why don't you call the coast guard? Call Aquaman, call somebody! Open the door!

Paul: Looks like the storm's heading northeast.

Simon: All right. Then we head west!

Paul: All right, well, turn. Turn this thing! Turn it!

Simon: I'm fighting the current! It's all right.

Lucinda: Are we gonna have a good chance to get where we wanna go?

Simon: If I can just turn this baby around without flipping her, we'll be all right!

Paul: All right. All right. Watch your starboard! Watch your starboard!

Rose: Open your eyes! Open your eyes! You okay?! Hey, look, you gotta hang in there. You gotta hang in!

Joe: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Rose: Oh, no. That's it. Don't say anything! Just hold -- please, don't say a word. Just save your strength. Can you do that, please? And no more apologies. Don't worry. I'm getting you out of here. I won't let anybody -- anybody -- take you away from me again.

Paul: All right, all right. Just stay on this heading, and we should avoid the worst of it.

Simon: This storm better not shift, 'cause we're never gonna outrun it.

Paul: Joe? How you hanging in there?

Joe: Please tell Rose to stop worrying about me.

Paul: That's her job, Joe. What do you think we came all the way down here for? Stay strong, baby. I promise I'm gonna get us home, okay?

Rose: Hey!

[Lucinda laughs]

Lucinda: Never a dull moment with us.

Simon: That's just the way we love it.

[Lucinda laughs]

Lucinda: Look! That doesn't look good. Come about. Come about.

Simon: No, no, no. No, no, no, no. If we get hit broadside, then we'll capsize the boat. We need to go straight, ride this out.

[Waves crashing]

Paul: All right, is everybody okay?

Rose: Yeah, yeah.

Simon: Come on! Is that the best you got!

[Lucinda laughs]

[electricity crackles]

Simon: Don't do this to me. Don't -- oh, damn!

Lucinda: Are they gonna come on again?

Simon: All right, the generator shorted out. We're taking on too much water. What's Henry doing? What's he doing?

Lucinda: Uh --

[wave crashes]

Henry: Why can't anything ever be easy for me?!

[Henry screams]

"Simon": Not a word.

Katie: So you're just going to stand here and tell me that without a liver in what, the next 24 hours, there's no hope for my sister? There's nothing we can do?

Chris: There is one option we haven't considered.

Katie: What?

John: Yes, we know that, Chris, and we've all thought of that.

Abigail: What's going on? What are you talking about?

Chris: A live liver donor transplant.

Bob: This is not the time to go into that, Chris.

Katie: No, wait, hold on. I want to hear this. I've read about this. The live donor can give part of their liver to the patient, right?

Chris: That's pretty much the way it works.

Katie: I don't care how it works as long as it saves Margo's life.

Bob: This is a procedure that's also dangerous to the donor. Chris, this is real life. This is not a case in a textbook.

Chris: But isn't it an option we have to consider now? Why are we afraid to talk about it?

Bob: Because there's a danger to making it sound simple. No one should ever enter into that procedure without knowing all of the risks.

Katie: Yeah, but we're at the end of the line here. We have no other choice. Dr. Dixon, why are you so quiet all of a sudden?

John: 'Cause I'm racking my brain to try to find some other solution. But I think we are at last-ditch efforts, Bob.

Bob: Then why can't we confer privately instead of throwing out procedures in a casual debate?

John: 'Cause I don't think we have time to -- to convene a forum. Besides, we're debating it the proper way, with the family of the patient.

Bob: A family that consists of the physician, who's also a scared father whose judgment is compromised at best and a sister who's willing to go under the knife without really knowing the ramifications. I don't think that that's really the best climate to make decisions, do you?

Chris: Since when is it a crime to love the life you want to save? I'm going to look in on Margo.

John: You know, he's right.

Katie: All right. You need a volunteer, right? Somebody whose blood type matches? Mine probably matches. Let's go. Let's take my blood.

Bob: Katie, I don't want you barreling into this procedure without knowing all of the risks involved.

Katie: Do you really think I care? If it's about Margo, i will risk anything.

Bob: Even if I tell you that at times, in rare cases, the live liver donor dies in the process? Are you willing to die, Katie?

Holden: You're sure she's okay, Jack? Tell her to stay put. I'm on my way. I was wondering where you were.

Aaron: Well, I'm home now.

Holden: That was Jack on the phone.

Aaron: Look, before you say anything, let me explain.

Holden: Explain what?

Aaron: Well, what was Jack talking about?

Holden: Lily is down at the station. She's trying to find out what's going on with Rose down in Avanya. Okay, Aaron. You tipped your hand. What's up?

Aaron: Nothing.

Holden: You didn't make it sound like nothing.

Aaron: It's just that they rushed Detective Hughes to the hospital. That -- that's it.

Holden: Jack didn't mention anything to me about that. Maybe he doesn't know about it. That's it? Okay, I want to go down to the Police station. Why don't you come with me? You can tell me all about Margo on the way. Come on, let's go! Lily's waiting.

Sierra: Where were you off to?

Lucy: Grandmother's.

Craig: And Lucinda's out of the country playing Nancy Drew. I just told her she couldn't stay there while her grandmother's away.

Sierra: Well, I'll be staying here now, so that solves that problem. The real question is why did you want to leave in the first place?

Lucy: 'Cause daddy took out a restraining order on Aaron, and in general has been making my life unbearable.

Sierra: Lucy, I have a car downstairs. Why don't you take your bag and wait for me there?

Craig: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Now, wait a minute. Wait a minute! [Door closes] I thought we settled this weeks ago. You told me I could handle this.

Sierra: So does that relegate me to the sidelines when I see the situation spinning out of control? You haven't resolved anything, and now she wants to move out.

Craig: I believe I have already explained the drawbacks of Mr. "Born to be wild," and now the problem is she thinks she's in love with him.

Sierra: Well, I will speak to Lucy, and if I think that their involvement is a bad idea, then I will take Lucy back to Montega with me.

Craig: No, no, no, no, no.

Sierra: But on the other hand, if I think that you are just being a control freak --

[Craig laughs] -- and bullying someone that you don't like, I will make sure that Lucy resumes her friendship with Aaron in spite of you.

Craig: I have already made the decision that had to be made to protect our daughter, so why do you have to come and give your little spin on it?

Sierra: Because you're not always rational where your daughter is concerned.

Craig: This is my fault? So once again, you have to come and save our child from me? It's a little payback?

Sierra: I don't like what you're implying, Craig.

Craig: Well, I know things haven't really been right between us since Bryant's death --

Sierra: Don't.

Craig: But maybe you're using this little Aaron farce as a way to get even. Maybe you blame me for taking your son away from you, so now you're taking my daughter away from me?

Sierra: How dare you? How dare you?

Jack: Yeah, I've got the coast guard on the line. They're tracking the boat that left Avanya harbor just as the storm hit. Boat made it into U.S. Waters, but they haven't been able to reach them.

Lily: Could Rose and the others be on it?

Jack: It's a possibility, but there's no way to know for sure. I also called Holden. He should be on his way down.

Lily: Okay.

Jack: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm here.

Carly: Hey, listen, Lily, if that boat was the only way anybody had of getting off that island, then Rose is on it, and I'm sure she dragged your mother and everybody else with her. Just have a little faith, okay?

Holden: Are you okay?

Lily: Yeah. Jack just found out a boat left Avanya, and Rose and the others could be on it.

Jack: Let me know as soon as you contact them? Thank you. I think it's time we start praying.

Holden: For Margo, too. Aaron just told me that they took her back to the hospital. You haven't heard anything?

Jack: No, no. You know what? I'm gonna head over there. If the coast guard calls, the switchboard will patch it through to this phone.

Carly: All right, I'll stay here, Jack, and wait until we hear something. Hi. You look better.

Aaron: I'm all right. Can you help me with something?

Carly: What did you do?

Aaron: Something kind of messed up.

Carly: Okay. I'm the queen of messed up. What do you need to know?

Aaron: Truthfully? How to keep Lily from finding out about it.

Margo: Where's Tom?

Chris: He's on his way.

Margo: Okay. So, Chris, tell me what's happening.

Chris: We're waiting for a liver donor to come through.

Margo: And if not? Okay.

Katie: You're saying that it's rare that a donor would die, right?

Bob: Yes, it's rare. But if there's a chance that you might not survive the surgery, you've got to know that. So think about it.

John: That's a hell of a way to sell this.

Katie: No, no. It's something that I need to hear.

John: Yes. Let me tell you something. Less than 1% of healthy donors die from this procedure. Now, if you're trying to scare her out of saving her sister's life, we might as well sign Margo's death certificate now.

Tom: So what's this about? Where is Margo?

John: Okay, Tom. She's hanging in there. We're going to prep her for surgery just in case a liver donor comes through.

Tom: So there's still nothing from the transplant network?

John: No, there's not, but there's something else that we're considering, and I want to run this by you. Rather than a cadaveric liver, we're thinking in terms of a live liver donor transplant.

Tom: Well, John, I'd do it in a second, but you know that Margo and I don't share the same blood type.

Bob: Katie might be a match. We haven't decided yet.

Katie: Dr. Hughes, you asked me if I was willing to risk the transplant, and I didn't get a chance to answer you. I can't imagine not doing it, even if I have to die trying.

Henry: I can't believe you --

"Simon": Shut your mouth.

Henry: Okay!

"Simon" I want the diamond.

Henry: It's -- it's probably washed over, 'cause the waves took it. I don't know. It's the darnedest thing.

"Simon": Or I'm gonna kill you now just for lying and then search your pockets.

Henry: Help! Help! Help! Help!

[Pounding at door] help, help!

Lucinda: Okay. All right, all right.

Henry: Can't anyone hear me screaming out there?!

Lucinda: Go on, get out. Go, go on out.

Henry: He -- he's here! He's back! He's back!

Simon: Who? Who? Henry, relax. Who?

[Shouting over each other]

Rose: Okay, okay.

[Talking over each other]

Simon: I've got him, I've got him. Take the wheel. Take the wheel. Lock the door when I leave, okay?

Henry: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Okay? 'Cause if you go out there, and he kills you, and then he comes back in here, and we think that he is you --

Simon: Shh!

Henry: And it'll be like some horror movie, and he'll slay all of us!

Simon: You have to kill the first Simon that walks back in that door.

Henry: All right -- what?!

Simon: Or just remember what I'm wearing, all right?

"Simon": You just love being the hero, don't you?!

Simon: You just ran out of lives.

"Simon": What's the matter? You don't like the fact that the plastic surgeon made me better looking than you?

Simon: Yeah, well, I hope you have as much luck with your mortician.

[Thunder crashing]


Henry: I can't see them. No, no, no. If they're not dead already, one of them's coming through this door.

Rose: Paul, what are you doing?! What are you doing?!

Paul: Saving Simon's life if he's still alive.

Rose: No!

Paul: Simon! Simon! Simon!

Simon: Over here!

Paul: Where are you, Simon?!

Simon: Down here.

Paul: Come on.

Henry: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait!

Paul: What, what?

Henry: Simon said to remember his clothes.

Paul: So?!

Henry: So this guy's wearing the same thing! We don't know who's who!

Margo: So if we don't find a donor, then I don't have a chance, huh?

Chris: No.

Margo: Thanks. Thanks for being honest.

Tom: Has anyone mentioned this to Margo?

John: No, no. I -- I think we've got to hold off on that until we've started the blood work with Katie.

Bob: John, can I have a word with you?

John: Sure, sure.

Jack: Hey. I haven't heard much. What's the story?

Tom: You know what? I'm -- I'm gonna let Katie fill you in. I'm gonna -- I'm gonna hop in, look in on Margo.

Jack: Well, how is she? Did they find a donor?

Katie: Hey. Have you heard anything from Simon?

Jack: The coast guard's tracking a boat that left Avanya. Simon and the others may be on it, which would be good news if there wasn't a hurricane bearing down on them.

[Katie groans]

Katie: I wish I could have told them about Margo. There just wasn't time.

Jack: What, you didn't get a chance to explain why you were leaving?

Katie: No. Lucinda and Rose had to tell him after I left. I didn't even get to kiss my husband good-bye, and now I don't know how he's gonna get home or what he's gonna find if he does.

Jack: Well, you didn't answer my question.

Katie: What?

Jack: About the liver donor.

Katie: It's me.

Jack: Come again?

Katie: I'm gonna donate part of my liver to Margo. It's just no one seems too eager about it.

Bob: Margo's your daughter, but you know I love her, too.

John: I know. What, that's not gonna cloud your judgment, only mine?

Bob: Look, this procedure is unbelievably complex, even for a specialist.

John: Then whoever we get better be damn good!

Bob: Plus the fact, if we allow Katie to go into this procedure, her husband doesn't know anything about it.

John: Oh, Bob, that's not in our control. This guy is out of the country. We can't find him anywhere. Our bottom line is time. We don't have any of that. So either we're gonna get the specialist, and we're gonna do this procedure, or else she's gonna die.

Bob: She could still die even with the procedure, John. Yeah, we have the facilities. We don't have the track record. Okay, let's do it. I'll start the blood work on Katie, and if she doesn't match, we'll look at the rest of the family.

John: Listen, I owe you one.

Bob: If they both survive, we're even.

John: All right.

Katie: What did he say?

John: Huh? If you're healthy, and you meet the criteria, we're gonna give it everything we've got.

Sierra: What would possess you to say something like that to me? How is it even conceivable to you that I would ever want to pay you back for our son's death?

Craig: So it's just Carly's concern that brought you all the way back here?

Sierra: She told me about the fiasco at Hal and Emily's wedding and how you -- you just went crazy. You were acting like a lunatic, demanding that -- that Jack Snyder press charges against Aaron for slamming a door in your face.

Craig: I told them to stay apart. And she started defying me. She kissed him in public right there.

Sierra: This is insane. This is totally insane, and I am not going to fight with you about it.

Craig: Well, you're not gonna railroad me here.

Sierra: I told you, I am going to hear both sides of the story. That's what I plan to do.

Craig: Then what? This isn't like the old days. I'm not gonna stand here and be overrun by an onslaught of esteban outrage and righteousness. What are you gonna do? You're gonna accept Aaron and Lucy, I lose. Or maybe you'll see what kind of a threat this guy is, and you take Lucy away from Oakdale. I lose again. I'm not gonna play that game. Lucy's just as much my daughter as she is yours, and I will not let you make decisions that control her future without my approval. Clear?

Sierra: I heard every word you said.

[Door closes]

[phone rings]

Carly: Hello?

Craig: Where are you?

Carly: Excuse me?

Craig: Tell me!

Carly: Craig? I'm at the Police station. What's up?

Craig: Did you call my ex-wife and tell her to come to Oakdale?

Carly: You know, I'm -- I'm a little busy right now. You'll have to get back to me, okay?

Craig: Carly? Car -

Holden: Aaron? Lily's exhausted. I need to take her home.

Carly: Well, tell her that I'll call her as soon as we hear anything.

Holden: Okay. You coming?

Aaron: No. I'm gonna wait for news about Aunt Rose. I'll take Lily's car home.

Holden: Good enough.

Carly: Hey, listen, Aaron. Whatever's going on, don't make the mistake of lying about it. Just explain it to your dad. He's got your back.

Aaron: I think he's tired of defending me all the time.

Carly: I doubt that. Just be honest. Your dad would tell you the same thing.

Aaron: He's totally Mr. "I can't tell a lie."

Carly: Yeah, and that's a rare thing. All of you Snyder boys are stand-up guys. You don't want to be the one flawing the bloodline, do you? No. Trust that your family will believe in you. And that includes Lily.

Craig: Carly, Carly, Carly. Cooking up another rendezvous for my daughter, or are you just giving lessons in teenage elopement and the premature siring of children?

Carly: Maybe you should go, Aaron. There's gonna be bloodshed.

Craig: No, Aaron, don't go on my account. This could be your home someday.

Aaron: Thanks, Carly.

Carly: When, Craig? When will you stop acting like an idiot?

Craig: Just be grateful we're in a place where I'm less likely to murder you.

Carly: Well, what's the problem?

Craig: My ex-wife, the mother of my remaining child, showed up on my door tonight. You don't seem surprised. She has this idea that somehow I have mishandled the situation between Lucy and little Mr. Easy rider. Apparently, she got this idea from you. So I want to know is, where do you get off putting that well-powdered nose up my personal business?

Paul: Of course it's Simon!

Lucinda: We don't want the wrong one. We don't want the monster.

[Lucinda laughs]

Lucinda: It's him.

[Lucinda laughs]

Rose: Lucinda, how do you know?! How do you know?!

Lucinda: Oh, honey, it's him.

Simon: Excuse me?

Rose: Hey, hey, everybody. Everybody, look. Straight ahead, I can see the moon.


Henry: One for you. One for you.

[Lucinda laughs]

Rose: Hey, look. I told ya, pop! Told you we were people that could survive this.

Aaron: Holden? Anybody home?

Holden: Keep it down. Lily's asleep. Did the coast guard call before you left the station?

Aaron: No, no. Listen, I've -- I've got to talk to you about something. Is this an okay time?

Holden: Sure. Go ahead.

Aaron: Just -- just let me finish what I have to say, okay? And don't think terrible things about me.

Holden: Just tell me what it is.

Aaron: I went to see Tom and Margo, just to get advice about the restraining order.

Holden: I thought that we agreed that you were gonna chill out about that.

Aaron: Well, I didn't, okay? Anyway, I went to their house, and the door was open. I thought it was kind of weird, so I went inside to see if anybody was there.

Holden: And what happened?

Aaron: Tom came home. He busted me.

Holden: What is the matter with you, Aaron?

Aaron: See, I told you you were gonna think bad things about me.

Holden: If you want to know what I think, why don't you ask me? Because you're not smart enough to guess. Silence? Fine. Are you a thief?

Aaron: No!

Holden: You keep acting like one.

Aaron: I'm just telling you what happened.

Holden: No, you're not, and you've spun this thing into something 100 times worse because you couldn't just stand there and tell me the truth in the first place.

Aaron: I am.

Holden: Why do people your age feel like they always need to try and get away with stuff? You don't need to do that, not with me. You don't need to do it with anybody. Okay. We need to try and figure out how we can clear this thing up with Tom. He doesn't need this in his life right now, and neither does Lily.

Aaron: She's gonna kick me out of the house, anyway.

Holden: Would you just get off that? Nobody's trying to throw the hammer down on you here. And we could use your help around here.

[Doorbell rings] Sierra!

Sierra: Hi.

Holden: Hi, how are you doing? Come on in. I -- I didn't know you were in town.

Sierra: Well, it was sort of spur of the moment. Is Lily still up?

Holden: Actually, she's had a pretty rough day. She's been sleeping for hours now.

[Door closes]

Sierra: Well, actually, we are here to see Aaron. Is he home?

Holden: Yeah. Come on in.

Sierra: Aaron? My name is Sierra. I'm Lucy's mother.

Tom: This is where you have to fight hard, kiddo. There's no giving up. Is there anything at all that you need? Okay. John and Bob are looking for some answers, and they're going to find something, but you -- you need to hang in here now.

Margo: Oh, look, it's the Marx brothers.

John: We have made some decisions here.

Margo: Yeah? Do I get to live?

John: There's a procedure called a live liver donor transplant. This is where a compatible donor gives a portion of his or her healthy liver to the patient.

Margo: A live donor?

John: Yes.

Margo: Who?

John: We've started a blood work-up on Katie to see if she's compatible.

Katie: I'm your donor. Hey, don't say I never gave you anything. I'd give you my heart if I had to. What's a little piece of liver?

Tom: So, how dangerous is this?

Katie: It's like getting your tonsils out.

Margo: No, no, no. How dangerous?

John: It's a -- it's a complex procedure.

Margo: No.

Katie: Margo, please.

Margo: Go home.

Tom: Your sister wants to talk to you. Accept this. I need you to stay with me and your children. I know it may seem selfish, but it is worth the risk.

Margo: When I said go home, I meant you, too.

Simon: You about done there, Henry?

Henry: I'm really good in a pinch. It's just afterwards, I toss my cookies. I'm polite that way.

Simon: Yeah? Well, grab a bucket, sunshine. Let's get some of this water out of here. We'll clear the generator out, dry it off, and then we'll have power again.

Henry: Hallelujah.

Rose: How ya doing, pop? Huh?

Joe: Take a look at all those little lights. For a couple of moments there, I didn't know if I'd ever see a sight like that again.

Rose: And now you've got the rest of your life to look at all those beautiful stars.

Joe: It's all that clear space. You know what it makes me think about?

Rose: What's that?

Joe: Napoli.

Rose: Oh! Yeah, when you were a little boy?

Joe: Out there in the countryside, you took a good look up, and there was this curtain -- curtain of stars hanging all the way down to the ground. Sometimes, when I'm sitting on my stool in Jersey and looking up at the sky, I know that my people in Naples are looking at the same things I'm looking at. I miss 'em, Rose.

Rose: You'll see 'em again, pop. You will.

Paul: Joe, I didn't know you were a stargazer.

Joe: Huh?

Paul: Isn't that -- yeah, yeah, that's it. Cephus, king of Ethiopia.

Rose: Am I -- am I missing something here?

Joe: You're smooth.

Rose: What? Can I get a little hint? What's going on?

Paul: The king's daughter was the most beautiful woman in the world, and Perseus, the hero, saved the king's life, and as a reward, he gave Perseus his daughter.

Joe: I'm not a king, but I got a good-looking daughter.

Rose: Aw.

Joe: And you're a hero in my book, Paul. I'm gonna give her to you on the wedding day.

Rose: Hey. You know, I -- I really can't concentrate on much of anything, I mean, especially a wedding, until you're playing boccie ball again every Saturday.

[Joe laughs]

[Joe coughs]

Joe: I'm not letting you spend any more time on me, especially not in New Jersey.

Paul: All right. Then how about Napoli? I mean, I'm gonna have Rose for the rest of my life. I'll let her have some time off to get you back on your feet.

Rose: You know what? Stop it, stop it. Stop talking. Just relax. You've been talking too much. You just calm down until we get you to the hospital.

Paul: Joe, I wouldn't argue with her if I were you.

Rose: Come on.

[Lucinda sighs]

Lucinda: Well done again. Well done, well done.

Simon: Well, I won't be happy till we're off this bloody boat.

Lucinda: Now, don't you worry about Katie. Katie is just fine. God protects lunatics and drunkards.

Henry: Comrades-in-arms. Hey, who would have thought we would have made it through this whole thing without killing one another?

[Lucinda laughs]

Lucinda: Count yourself lucky.

Simon: Yeah, let's not start now.

Henry: Hey, I am gonna count my luck. You know, Lucinda --

Lucinda: Yes?

Henry: I'm a modest man, but I do think that I -- I do think that I deserve some kind of compensation for all of this. I'm not talking about a lot of zeroes here, but --

Lucinda: Okay. You can start tomorrow.

Henry: "Start"?

Lucinda: Yeah. Yeah, your new job. You'd get the zeroes. You've got the zeroes, only I'm going to wring the blood, sweat and tears out of you to make it worth my while.

Rose: How did you know that I wanted to take my pop to Napoli?

Paul: I know you. I look in those eyes, and I see everything.

Rose: And I love you for that. But I know we were supposed to get married and everything, and I just don't know if I can think about that right now.

Paul: I know. Just let your father get back on his feet, and then we'll take everything from there, okay?

Rose: I don't deserve you.

Paul: I never really saw that up-close. It's beautiful.

Rose: Oh, yeah. It's beautiful, all right. It's covered in blood. It's caused more misery than I can even think about.

Paul: Well, it's still your birthright.

Rose: Yeah, you know, but you know, even a multimillion-dollar rock is not worth it. It's got nothing to do with my family. I've got a great arm. You ever see it?

Paul: No.

Rose: Oh, yeah. That.

Paul: What?

[Water splashes]

Sierra: I won't bite.

Aaron: Lucy's father does.

Sierra: Well, let's just forget about him for a minute. I am staying at Lucy's grandmother's house, and we would like for you to join us. If that's all right with you and Lily?

Holden: You'll take care of any fallout from the restraining order? I don't want Aaron to be ambushed.

Sierra: No, no. Nothing like that will happen. I'll make sure of it. Besides, my mother has that long table in the dining room. I'll make sure he sits 50 feet away. All right. Why don't we go?

Holden: We'll talk when you get back. Enjoy yourself.

Margo: Don't you get what the doctors are talking about when they say "complex procedure"? It's a shorthand. It means that someone could die, Katie. You could die.

Katie: Do you have any concept of how much I love you? Everybody that was just in this room loves you so much, and you can't change that. And you can't stop me from doing this, because if I didn't have you in my life -- I would only have half a life. So I'll just have half a liver instead, okay? And even then, we still won't be even. I get to be the big sis now, big sis. What I say goes. And we're going through with this operation.

Carly: I didn't want your daughter to be another victim so, yeah, I called Sierra. Maybe I shouldn't have, but I did.

Craig: And now you've put me in a situation where I may lose my daughter.

Carly: If anybody made that bed, Craig, it's you.

Craig: In all of our dealings in this, uh -- whatever we have, I have never once tried to put a wedge between you and Parker. I was the guy who came to the rescue when Rosanna tried to hijack him. I almost went to jail because I respected you as a mother. And yet, you are not giving me that same respect, and this hurts me, Carly. In fact, this hurts me so deep, I don't think I can bear to look at you again!
