Aaron: We don't have much time.

Lucy: Aaron, don't.

Aaron: What?

Lucy: Don't let me go.

Aaron: Lucy, this is not gonna be the last time I hold you. I told you, I'm gonna think of a way to stay.

Lucy: Well, let me help. We'll think of it together.

Aaron: Okay. Okay, but we've gotta be smart. No running, no power plays, nothing that's gonna give Holden another reason to want me gone.

Lucy: Well, maybe I could talk to your mother. I mean, I realize she doesn't know me, but we could sit down, and I could tell her how much we mean to each other, and then maybe she'll change her mind.

Aaron: That's not gonna change her mind, or Caleb's. They already booked me on a flight to Seattle.

Lucy: For when?

Aaron: Tonight.

Lucy: I thought I was doing the right thing, being strong, telling you I'd find a way to deal with you leaving, but Aaron, as soon as you walked through that door, I knew I couldn't live without you, even for a little while.

Aaron: And I feel the same way. But now that I know you want me here, there's no way I'm going back to Seattle. Oh, I meant to do this before. There still is someone in my family on my side.

Lucy: Who are you calling?

Aaron: Hello. Abigail? How good are you at changing Holden's mind?

Alison: You're right, Ms. Pratt. Young women of determination are created. Hold on, Aaron. Help is on the way.

[Glass shatters]

Louella: What are you doing?!

Alison: Cleaning out your trophy case. Maybe it was just me, but it was kind of cluttered in there.

Susan: Out! Alison!

Louella: Where is the other trophy?

Alison: Out with the old!

Louella: In all my years at the academy, this is the single most destructive act I've ever witnessed.

Alison: See, mom? I'm excelling already?

Susan: I'm so terribly sorry. I don't know what to say. I'll pay for the damage, of course. Alison, how could you?!

Louella: I don't think a check is going to cover this kind of damage, Dr. Stewart.

Alison: See, mom? I guess she wants us out of here. Is there a bar open in this town? 'Cause I could really use a beer right now.

Susan: Do you have anything, anything at all to say for yourself?

Alison: No. I think I pretty much said it all back there.

Susan: Was it your intention all along to humiliate me like that?!

Alison: No. I mean, it was just part of the bonus, mom.

Susan: Well, you have finally done it, because I'm finished! I'm throwing in the towel! When we get back, I'm calling Social Services!

Alison: Whatever you say, mom. Just wake me up when we get back to Oakdale.

Hal: What's this about? How come you wanted to see me?

Margo: Oh, Hal, I am bored out of my mind.

Hal: Oh, I see. I've become the last resort of the desperate?

Margo: Now listen, Hal. I've been out of the hospital for over a week now, and I -- I'm caught up in all my reading, I've balanced my checkbook, and my mind is turning into oatmeal. So I figured, "well, you know, why don't I just try and catch up what's going on at the station?" Because every time I talk about Police business with Tom, he just pretends he doesn't hear me.

Hal: Hey, this is good.

Margo: What?

Hal: Obviously, you're feeling better.

Margo: I started feeling better days ago. I've gone on to fantastic.

Hal: You're also angling for something, so why don't you just get to it?

Margo: Yeah. Okay, yeah. Well, um, I know that there is a plan in place to prove that Marshall is connected to Steinbeck. I want to be part of that. It's time for me to get back to work, Hal.

Henry: Testing. This is Henry Coleman. Hello?

Simon: What are you doing? What's the holdup? You're supposed to be on the way to Travers' room already.

Henry: I have to make sure the mike works before I plant it inside.

Simon: You told me the equipment was brand-new.

Henry: Yeah, well, we don't want to plant a dead mike, now do we?

Bonnie: We have got to hurry. The maid's almost done with her vacuuming.

Henry: Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder how I got myself into this.

Bonnie: Is there a problem?

Simon: No. No, it's all fine. It's just some technical stuff. Are you ready to set up a distraction so Henry can slip into Travers' room?

Bonnie: Yeah. Henry?

Henry: Yeah, I'm sorry. The mike is not working. There must be a dead mike.

Simon: You are going to have to fix it once you get into the room, Henry. Come on.

Henry: Wait, hold it. Simon, hold on. Hold on just a second here.

Simon: You're not gonna try and weasel your way out of this, are you?

Henry: No. I want to get my toolbox so I can do the job right. Do you have any other words of encouragement?

Simon: Don't screw up.

Henry: Let's go.

[Talking over each other]

Reporter #1: Do you suspect Marshall Travers will continue to run a negative campaign?

Jessica: Well, that sounds like a question for my opponent. All I can say is, I won't run my campaign that way. And I certainly have no control over what Mr. Travers does or does not do. Rest assured that my campaign will be run with honesty and dignity, and I encourage Mr. Travers to do the same. That's all for now. Thank you for coming.

[Talking over each other]

Reporter #2: Mr. Travers, do you care to comment on Ms. Griffin's statement?

Marshall: No, I would not.

Reporter #1: Do you think her admission of wrongdoing went far enough?

Marshall: That's for the public to decide, not me.

Reporter #2: Do you have further evidence of Ms. Griffin abusing power?

Marshall: I'm here to win an election, not to tear down the incumbent. Ms. Griffin isn't the only one with a sense of right and wrong here.

Reporter #1: Mr. Travers, what are you doing here? Did Ms. Griffin invite you?

Marshall: No, she did not. I heard she was here, and I couldn't stay away.

Marshall: This was Ms. Griffin's Press conference, not mine. I'd be happy to answer more questions at another time.

[Talking over each other]

Jessica: Okay, people. People, you heard the man. Don't you have deadlines to meet?

[Light laughter]

Reporter #1: Thank you, thank you.

Reporter #2: Come on, Karen.

Jessica: Uh, leave it open.

Marshall: Why?

Jessica: I told you, I --

Marshall: I remember. You're not interested. You've also hung up on me, run out on me. I thought you'd have a harder time escaping from me here.

Jessica: Well, you were wrong.

Marshall: Jessica, wait. Give me a chance. Forget about the election, forget about the media. Just for a few moments, let yourself feel.

Jessica: That you want me to feel something I don't.

Marshall: Wait.

Jessica: You have three seconds to let go of me, or I'll bring charges.

Marshall: All this effort to resist when giving in is all we both really want?

Susan: You don't want anything? Fine. I'm going in there for a cup of coffee. Don't you dare leave this car.

[Car door slams]

[phone rings]

Lucy: Alison?

Alison: Lucy? How come you're answering Aaron's phone?

Lucy: Aaron asked me to hold onto it while he -- you know what? It doesn't matter. Did you get my message about Aaron having to leave Oakdale?

Alison: Aaron hasn't left yet, has he?

Lucy: No, but his parents are here, and they wanna take him back to Seattle tonight.

Alison: I -- I'll get there as soon as I can. Should I meet you at the barn?

Lucy: I guess so. And hurry, Alison. We need that brain of yours on our side.

Alison: I'll do my best. I've gotta go.

Susan: Who was that on the phone?

Alison: Why are you always so suspicious?

Susan: I won't even dignify that question with an answer. Now just tell me who it was.

Alison: My friends, okay? They need me for something, so let's stop wasting time and let's go.

Aaron: My grandma lent me her truck. I'll go meet Abigail, see if she has any ideas.

Lucy: I wish I could go with you more than anything, but if I miss that doctor's appointment --

Aaron: I know. Your dad's gonna go ballistic and things will just get worse. You all right?

Lucy: No.

Aaron: Lucy, do you see me here? Do you see me here right in front of you?

Lucy: Yes.

Aaron: Well, this is where I'm staying, okay? I'm not getting on that plane. Meet me in front of Java after your appointment. I'm gonna have good news.

Lucy: I'll be there.

Aaron: Okay.

Lucy: Oh, and Alison called. I told her we needed her help, and she's gonna be back here as soon as she can.

Aaron: You asked Alison for help? You really are desperate, huh?

Lucy: I will do anything to keep us together.

Aaron: So will I. I'll see you in a little bit, okay?

Margo: Well, now that Katie and I share a liver, we finally talk. And Katie talks a lot. She told me that Paul Ryan contacted Simon to try and get him to help him prove that there was a connection between Travers and Steinbeck.

Hal: I'm aware that's what Paul thinks. I'm inclined to agree with him. But nobody contacted me about trying to prove it.

Margo: Well, why would they do that, Hal? What they're doing is illegal.

Hal: And you want to be part of that? Why?

Margo: Hal, I just want to feel like I have a purpose.

Hal: Margo, you already have a purpose. It's to keep getting better until you can come back to work full-time. That's your purpose.

Margo: Well, that may never happen, and you know it.

Hal: Why? You just told me how fantastic you feel.

Margo: All right, so I lied. The truth is, Hal, I have hepatitis C. I'm taking medication. There are side effects. I don't know how that's going to affect me in the long run.

Hal: We almost lost you, Margo. Can't you just be grateful you're alive?

Margo: I am. I am grateful. I'm so grateful having this time with my family. It's just -- it's -- it's wonderful. But you know me. I gotta feel like I'm useful. Otherwise, I'm just a nice lady who's sitting around in a nice house and waiting to fulfill her extra couple of years she's been given on the planet.

Hal: There's lots of ways to be useful. You do volunteer work, raise money for charitable organizations.

Margo: Would that be enough for you, Hal?

Hal: We're not talking about me.

Margo: Well, you of all people know how dangerous Steinbeck is. You want his lackey as a D.A.? I mean, I'll go to Paul myself if I have to.

Hal: You do that, I'll have you arrested.

Margo: What?

Hal: You heard me. This nice life of yours is important to me, too, Margo, and I'm not gonna let you risk it.

Bonnie: Excuse me? Do you know this hotel fairly well?

Maid: I've worked here for 11 years.

Bonnie: Oh, great. Great, great. A friend of mine wrote his room number down, but I can't seem to find it.

Maid: Is that a seven or one?

Bonnie: A seven. Well, see? I can't really tell. It's really strange, isn't it? You know what I'm gonna do? I'm just gonna go to the front desk and be sure. Thank you. Thank you.

Henry: I'm in.

Paul: Good work. Open the door.

Henry: What?

Paul: It's important, Henry. Do it.

Simon: Howdy, partner. All right, let's get to work.

Henry: What are you doing here?

Simon: I had a bad mike. I thought you might need some help.

Henry: No, no, no. You don't trust me, do you?

Simon: No.

Henry: Are you gonna ever trust me?

Simon: Doubtful.

Henry: Then what am I doing here? What am I doing here, working so hard, risking my own personal freedom?

Simon: You want my trust? Earn it.

Henry: Fine. Grab me the electrical tape and the scissors that's on the top tray. I'll look for a place to plant the bug.

Simon: All right. I love it when you take control. Here.

Jessica: You shouldn't have come here.

Marshall: Are you sorry I did? Jessica, you're a remarkable woman.

Jessica: Why's that?

Marshall: For allowing yourself to admit --

Jessica: What? To admit what? That I want you, that I enjoyed kissing you? I have no problem owning my feelings, or what I did. The difficult part is the guilt that comes with it.

Marshall: You feel you owe something to Dr. Harris?

Jessica: I'll not talk to you about Ben Harris. He and I have something real.

Marshall: What do we have, Jessica?

Jessica: I don't know. I don't know. I don't know what this is. But whatever it is, it can't go any further.

Marshall: My cell phone number.

Jessica: What do I want that for?

Marshall: Because sooner or later, you'll feel the need to be alone with me. Meeting at the Lakeview will be too dangerous. I'll make arrangements for us elsewhere.

Jessica: You are the most arrogant man I think I've ever encountered.

Marshall: Something is exploding between us, Jessica. I can't fight it, and neither can you.

Jessica: What's "exploding" between us could ruin my career. Don't expect a phone call, Marshall. This isn't going any further.

Marshall: I guess I've been presumptuous. I apologize.

Jessica: For what? Your arrogance? Please.

Marshall: My arrogance is just a cover-up, Jessica -- for a need that's all too real.

Margo: Hal, you would bring charges against me for this? Come on!

Hal: Margo, my point is, it's too soon for you to be doing Police work.

Margo: I'm not gonna be chasing bad men down the alleyway. I mean, I don't even know if Steinbeck's back in the country or not.

Hal: Well then, why talk about it? There's nothing you can do about it, so --

[cell phone rings] that's me. Munson.

Paul: Hey, Hal, it's Paul. I need a favor.

Hal: You willing to do one for me, too?

Paul: Sure. What is it?

Hal: Tell me what you know about trying to prove a connection between Marshall Travers and James Steinbeck.

Paul: Two things -- the effort is moving forward, and the less you know about it, the better.

Hal: For your protection or mine?

Paul: Take your pick.

Hal: Okay, I'll steer clear of it for now. But you'll call if you need me?

Paul: You have my word.

Hal: Good. Now, what can I do for you?

Paul: My mother left town and was planning to take Will --

Hal: Barbara left town with Will without telling me?

Paul: Hal, relax. It didn't happen. I talked her into letting Will stay with me.

Hal: Well, good. Thank you, Paul. Thank you for that.

Paul: He's at the Snyders' now. I'm supposed to pick him up there, but I'm running a little late.

Hal: Say no more. I'm on my way.

Hal: What time do you want me to tell him you'll be there?

Paul: Before dark, I'm sure. I'll take him out to get something to eat as soon as I get there. I wish I could get there sooner, but this operation's at kind of a crucial stage.

Hal: Paul, be careful. These guys play rough.

Paul: Well, I'm not playing. I'm dead serious.

Hal: I gotta get going.

Margo: Yeah, I figured. But listen, let me just ask you something. Don't you find it a little odd that the minute we make the connection between Steinbeck and Travers, Barbara leaves town?

Hal: I'm not discussing Police work with you. Your job is to get better and that's it.

Margo: No, no. Listen to me, Hal. If Barbara is taking up with Steinbeck again, that means that your son, Will, is right in the middle. What are you gonna do about that, huh? Sit back, do nothing?

Hal: You play dirty.

Margo: Yeah, I play to win. Isn't that the kind of person you want on your team?

Hal: Okay. You are unofficially on the case, which officially does not exist.

Margo: And you're not gonna be sorry. What do you want me to do?

Hal: What no one else can do, Margo. You find James Steinbeck.

Aaron: Thanks for meeting me here. So, do you have any ideas?

Abigail: I'll talk to Holden, and I'll try to convince him that you should stay. But, Aaron, I really don't see what I can say that's gonna change his mind.

Aaron: How about, "Aaron misses Lucy when he's away from her for more than five minutes. Can you imagine what it would do to him if he was half a country away?"

Abigail: Aaron --

Aaron: Just tell him it's pointless, Abigail. Because the second I get a chance, I'll be here in a shot.

Abigail: You got in a motorcycle accident with Lucy riding on the back. What am I supposed to say about that?

Aaron: That seeing Lucy on the ground is all the punishment I'll ever need. I love her, Abigail. And she loves me. Please try to help me. There's not that much time.

[Knock at the door]

Jessica: Hey.

Ben: Hey.

Jessica: I thought you'd left.

Ben: Had a run-in with Travers as I was leaving. I wanted to make sure that you were okay.

Jessica: Oh.

Ben: You look down. Is it because Travers showed up at your Press conference?

Jessica: No. Please, I would not allow that man to have any effect on me.

Ben: Well, okay. So what's the problem?

Jessica: Ben, I could be out of a job in a week. I haven't been in private practice for -- years.

Ben: Or a week from now, you could be starting a new term as a District Attorney. Come on, Jessica, you gotta think positive.

Jessica: Yeah, I know. I don't know if I remember how.

Ben: Oh, well, what do you say you start by taking the rest of the day off with me. We'll take a drive down to the pond and we lay on the grass and imagine what it's gonna be like --

Jessica: I can't, I can't. I have a phone call to make and then I have appointments.

Ben: Okay, okay. Okay. I realize this is a difficult time. But you're gonna make it through, okay? Just remember, you don't have to face it all alone.

Jessica: I'll remember that. Thank you.

Ben: Call me if you need me.

Margo: Finding Steinbeck is next to impossible. It always has been. Now, that's not letting me help. That's blowing me out of the water before I even begin.

Hal: You asked for an assignment, you got one. It's find Steinbeck. You take it or leave it.

Margo: I -- [cell phone rings] great, you want me to kill superman now? Hughes.

Jessica: Hey, Margo. It's Jessica.

Margo: Hi. Shouldn't you be out making speeches somewhere?

Jessica: Probably. Listen, do you have some time to talk to me?

Margo: Right now?

Jessica: Yeah. It's kind of important.

Margo: Is everything all right?

Jessica: Yeah, everything's fine. It's Marshall Travers. I just need some advice.

Margo: Well, can you meet me at Java? I'm having coffee with Hal.

Jessica: I could be there in 15 minutes. You're sure I'm not interrupting?

Margo: No, no, no. Hal -- Hal has to leave anyway. So I'll be waiting.

Hal: Jessica Griffin?

Margo: She wants to talk to me about Travers.

Hal: Why you?

Margo: I don't know. But if Travers is connected to Steinbeck, this might be my first step toward finding him.

Jessica: Hey.

Margo: Oh, hi.

Jessica: It's good to see you.

Margo: Oh, man, it's good to be seen.

Jessica: This --

Margo: This is temporary.

Jessica: Oh, good, I'm so glad to hear you say that. So the recovery's going well?

Margo: Extremely.

Jessica: Good, good, you look great.

Margo: Thank you.

Jessica: I guess I should order something.

Margo: Yeah, you could -- or you could stop stalling and tell me what you wanna talk about.

Jessica: Right. I said this was about Marshall Travers.

Margo: Mm-hmm.

Jessica: I guess I should just come out with it, right?

Margo: Yeah, that's usually the way it's done. It's --

Jessica: Right. I'm attracted to him, Margo. I don't want to feel this way. I don't understand it. But I can't seem to shake it.

Margo: Well, have you done anything --

Jessica: Oh, no, no. Well, I kissed him. Twice. And I knew I shouldn't have, but I couldn't stop myself.

Margo: Listen, Jess, you're a grown woman. Kissing's not illegal.

Jessica: Ben is a good person. And we're good together, and it looks like our relationship is moving forward, you know. And then this madness takes over.

Margo: Wait a minute. Does Ben know anything about your feelings towards --

Jessica: Oh, no, no, no.

Margo: Okay.

Jessica: I considered explaining what I was going through, but I can't even explain it to myself. I don't like Marshall Travers. And I can't even count the number of things he's done that I don't respect. And yet, the man walks into the room, and I just want to throw myself into his arms. It scares me, Margo. And I don't know how much longer I can keep saying no.

Will: This model stuff is all you ever want to do. Can't we do something else?

Luke: We're almost finished, Will. And plus, I want to take it to school with me next week.

Will: So? Why should I care?

Hal: Because Luke's a pal, and you're a stand-up kid.

Will: Dad!

Hal: How ya doing?

Will: Hey, mom's out of town. Can I come home with you?

Hal: Well, don't see why you'd wanna do that. I mean, Paul told me he's buying pizza every night for dinner this week.

Will: It's still not the same as being home. And you don't even have to pick me up. I can take a cab all by myself.

Hal: Hey, Luke? Would you mind giving Will and me a couple seconds to ourselves here?

Luke: Okay.

Hal: Thanks. Come here. What we got here is a situation that neither one of us likes. I know you miss being home, and I miss having you there. But we can't take matters into our own hands. Right now, we gotta do what the law says. And the law says that you live with your mom.

Will: But I'm sick of living with her. She doesn't let me do anything.

Hal: She loves you a lot, Will. I know she can be --

Will: Dad, she treats me like a baby. You never treat me like that. Can't you do something, please?

Hal: What we gotta do is stay strong, and we'll play this smart. Now, we keep doing that, and before you know it, you'll be sleeping at home in your own bed, and we won't have to go through this ever again.

Will: Then here.

Hal: Now why are you giving me this?

Will: Because if I don't need to use it to get home, then I don't see any reason to use it at all.

Hal: Come here. You just stay strong, son. This'll all be over soon.

Paul: What the hell's taking them so long? They should've been out of Travers' room ten minutes ago.

[Phone rings]

Bonnie: Yes, hello. He's on his way up? Okay, no, thank you. Thank you very much. Bye.

Paul: Come on, come on. All right, get out of Travers' room now. He's on his way up.

Simon: Look, we're almost done here, all right? All we need is a couple of minutes.

Paul: Simon, get out of there! Don't take any chances!

Simon: All right, we're gonna have to go. Travers is on the way up.

Henry: All right. Just one more tiny adjustment, and I'll have this --

Simon: Listen, forget it. That's gonna have to do, Henry.

Henry: No, Simon, I'll catch up.

Simon: If Travers comes up here --

Henry: I said, go!

Simon: Out of your way.

Marshall: Who are you?

Paul: We're in trouble. Marshall caught Henry.

Henry: Laundry sent me, sir. You wanted these things cleaned?

Simon: Good thinking, Henry.

Marshall: I have some dry cleaning, too. Can you take that?

Henry: Yes. I hate to inconvenience you, but I'm gonna have to ask you to fill out a separate ticket. My boss is really strict about that sort of thing.

Marshall: Okay, no problem.

Henry: Yeah.

Marshall: Let me get my suit.

Henry: Okay.

Paul: He bought it.

Simon: Yeah, could you send a valet to room 703? I have some dry cleaning that needs to be picked up. Thank you.

Paul: What are you doing?

Simon: Making sure this works.

Marshall: I want it back by tomorrow night.

Henry: It'll be here, sir. You have a nice day.

Marshall: You, too. Thanks.

Henry: Thank you.

Bonnie: Nice work, Henry. Okay, I'll take it from here.

Henry: What? What do you think you're doing? I have to have this stuff --

Bonnie: It's under control. Just get back to Paul. And hurry. There you are. Thank you for getting here so fast. These are for you.

Valet: I'm supposed to make the pick-up from 703.

Bonnie: I'm Mr. Travers' girlfriend. And I'm supposed to have these picked up hours ago, but I forgot. So can you just keep my secret, please?

Valet: Okay. Why not?

Bonnie: Thanks. Well, the ticket's right in there. And thank you so very, very much.

Valet: Any time.

Bonnie: Wait! He wants everything back by tomorrow night.

Valet: You got it.

Bonnie: Okay, thank you.

Simon: Excellent, Henry. Well done. Very quick thinking.

Paul: Shh, shh, shh! Travers is on the phone.

Marshall: Hi, this is Mr. Travers in 703. I just sent some laundry and dry cleaning down,

but I didn't recognize the valet.

Bonnie: What's happening?

Henry: He's on to us.

Marshall: Can you confirm that my clothes have been delivered and that the valet is actually an employee of the hotel?

So you have received them? Okay. Thank you very much. Sorry to bother you.

Paul: All right, we're in the clear. Now all we need to do is wait for my father to make contact.

Bonnie: And Mr. T. Marshall Travers will be out of our lives, for good.

Hal: Now, this is your money. You keep it. The going home part, that'll take care of itself. You just trust me, okay? I gotta to get to work, Will. Hey, tomorrow I'll stop by Paul's, and we'll find something fun to do, just the two of us. How about that?

Will: Maybe.

Hal: I love you, son. I'll see you tomorrow.

Will: Sure, dad.

Margo: There is a theory floating around that Marshall Travers may be connected to James Steinbeck.

Jessica: Well, wait a minute. I know that he represented Steinbeck in the past, but you think he's still working for him?

Margo: I think that Marshall Travers has ulterior motives.

Jessica: For what?

Margo: For everything.

Jessica: Excuse me a minute. I'm gonna go and throw some cold water on my face and hope that my brain will kick back into gear.

Margo: No, listen, listen, you just wait here. You see that lady? She's gotta roll me out of here in a second.

Jessica: Oh, okay. Well, thanks for listening.

Margo: Okay.

Jessica: I really needed my girlfriend today.

Margo: Oh, you've got one, always.

Jessica: Stay well, sweetie.

Margo: Yeah.

Jessica: Okay. See you soon.

Aaron: If there was something I could do. Something that could make Holden trust me again.

Abigail: Like what?

Aaron: I don't know. Hell, after everything that's wrong, I mean, what can I possibly do that's major enough for him to change his mind? He thinks I mess everything I touch.

Abigail: No, he doesn't.

Aaron: Think about it, Abby. I stay out all night with his car. I get in a fight at the Old Mill. I get Lucy in a bike accident. I mean, to make up for that, I'd have to defuse a bomb or pull some baby off a railroad track. You know, Aaron Snyder, the hero. And it still wouldn't do it.

Lucy: Hi. Did you guys come up with anything?

Abigail: No, we thought of some ideas. I'm gonna go talk to Holden.

Aaron: Thanks, Abby.

Lucy: Good luck.

Aaron: How's that leg?

Lucy: It's healing. So do you think Abigail's gonna be able to convince Holden to let you stay?

Aaron: It's not looking as good as I'd hoped.

Margo: Hey, Lucy, Aaron! Hi. Wait -- hi, hi. It's good to see you guys.

Lucy: Same here. Oh, Gladys, this is my niece, Lucy. And you know what? She could drive me home, and I could just see you tomorrow. Is that okay? I mean, 'cause I just -- you know, if that's all right with you, I'd love to spend some time with you guys.

Lucy: Oh, me, too. But I just don't know if I can --

Aaron: No, no, you go ahead. I'll meet you back at the farm.

Lucy: But what if you --

Margo: You know what? Why don't you just tell Gladys where the car is, and I'll meet you there.

Lucy: That's me right in front of the shoe store. I'll be there in about two minutes.

Margo: Take your time. Gladys, shoes, let's go. Bye, Aaron.

Aaron: Bye.

Lucy: Aaron, you can't go home. What if your parents want to leave early for the airport?

Aaron: I won't go. I'll wait till you get there.

Lucy: I'm just afraid that if I leave now, I'll never get to see you again.

Simon: Hey, thanks for not giving us up.

Henry: Ah, come on. I'd never do that. Only under certain circumstances.

Simon: Right. So what makes this so special?

Henry: Well, Simon, if I turn you in, I end up in jail right next to you.

Simon: I don't know. From what I've seen of Travers, you could've probably cut a deal.

Henry: Now you tell me.

[phone ringing]

Paul: Oh, what's that?

Simon: Shh.

Paul: What?

Paul: It's Marshall's phone.

Bonnie: We didn't bug it, did we?

Simon: No, no, no, just his room, but at least we'll hear his side of the conversation. Hopefully that'll be enough.

[Phone ringing]

Marshall: Marshall Travers.

Jessica: It's -- it's me.

Marshall: I was hoping you'd call.

Jessica: I was hoping I wouldn't.

Marshall: I can't meet you here. It's too dangerous. I'll call you from my car, and we'll figure out where we can get together.

Paul: That was him. That was James.

Simon: "I was hoping you'd call." "Too dangerous to meet here." Yeah, it sure sounds like him.

Paul: Okay, I'm gonna try to follow Marshall, see where they hook up. You wanna come along?

Simon: Yeah, why not?

Paul: Okay, you stay here in case Marshall doubles back.

Bonnie: Okay, I was planning on it.

Henry: Yeah, me, too.

Paul: All right, all right, good. My father's made a rare mistake, and this time, I'm gonna make him pay for it.

Aaron: I should go meet my family. Maybe something magic happened and they've changed their minds about me leaving.

Lucy: I'm gonna take my Aunt Margo home, and I'll get to the farm as fast as I can. And, Aaron, don't argue with them. If you have to leave before I get there --

Aaron: Then I'll come back. Nothing's gonna keep me away from you.

Lucy: Don't give up. Find a way to stay.

Susan: Are we home?

Alison: Not quite.

Susan: Where are we?

Alison: Outside the driveway to the Snyder farm. Aaron could be leaving for Seattle tonight. I have to say good-bye to him.

Susan: Is that why you smashed that trophy case?

Alison: No!

Susan: So you could get back here to see Aaron?

Alison: No!

Susan: You're lying.

Alison: I bailed on dear old Wentworth because I'd rather eat toasted maggots than be another corpse in their bone yard. But as long as we're back, I'm outta here.

Susan: No, you're not! Come back! Alison, come back here!

Luke: My propeller's missing. Did you take it? Did you?

Will: No.

Luke: I'll bet you threw it in the loft again like you did last time.

Will: I didn't touch it. Leave me alone.

Luke: Then will you help me find it? Please?

Will: Sure. Stupid model, stupid Luke. Stupid everything.

Luke: Did you find it?

Will: No!
