Holden: Hey! Hey, where are you going?
Luke: To the backyard.
Holden: Ah, come here. Come here. Don't you remember what Dr. Woodward told you right before we left the hospital?
Luke: "Take it easy for a day or two." But I'm not even sick.
Holden: I know, but I want you to slow down.
Luke: Does this mean we can't even go to the barn?
Holden: No. You can look at it from a distance. But you can't get close to it, and you definitely can't touch anything.
Luke: How come?
Holden: Because the Police and Fire marshal are inspecting the area, and they wanna try and figure out how the fire started.
Fire marshal: Arson was always a possibility, Hal. It would explain a lot of things.
Hal: That was my thought, too.
Fire marshal: Do the Snyders know people in Seattle?
Hal: Holden's son used to live there. I'm not saying that's proof of anything. My son and Luke Snyder could've lit those themselves.
Fire marshal: With kids that age -- I've seen it before.
Hal: I'll check this out, see you.
Hal: Bob. Any word on Will?
Bob: That's why I'm here, Hal. I'm sorry to have to tell you this -- Will is in a coma.
Carly: Craig? Hey, Montgom -- "Carly Tenney, head designer."
[Carly laughs] well, it's certainly very nice to meet you. Would you -- would you like my card?" Conference area, shower -- children's play space?
Craig: You approve?
Carly: Well, approve? Craig, this office is everything I've ever wanted.
Craig: Well, you're free to show your appreciation at any time.
Carly: I should've known it. This -- all of this is just a setup. Isn't it, Craig?
Paul: No, don't shoot.
Jack: Hands where I can see 'em. What the hell are you doing here, Paul?
Paul: I was, uh, thinking about moving. I was checking out the building.
Jack: Yeah, by hiding in the broom closet? With a bunch of video equipment?
Paul: Did I say I was hiding?
Jack: You got a choice, Paul. Either I can track down where this video feed is hooked up or you can save us both the trouble and tell me yourself.
Paul: Marshall Travers' room.
Jack: Well, I thought he lived at the Lakeview.
Paul: He has a place here, as well. Apartment 2B.
Jack: For what?
Jack: With Steinbeck?
Paul: I don't know.
Jack: But you do know that spying on him is illegal?
Paul: I didn't plan on getting caught.
Jack: Did you get anything decent? Anything you can use against him?
Isaac: Do you still love Jessica?
Ben: Of course I do.
Isaac: Situation like this, you gotta go with what you know. Not with what you don't know.
Ben: Oh, man. Where'd you learn that? "The bartender's handbook"?
Isaac: I learned it the hard way. Listen up -- you don't know that Jessica is seeing another man. You do know she lied about where she was last night. Well, go with that. Put it to her. Get some answers.
Ben: Jessica is under enough pressure right now waiting on the election results. Now is not the time to confront her on all this.
Isaac: Molly's on the tube. Maybe she has word about the election.
Molly: Live at the City Times -- exit polls across the city indicate that T. Marshall Travers has a sizable lead over incumbent, Jessica Griffin. In fact, sources close to the district attorney indicate that she may be ready to concede the election at any moment, right here. This is Molly McKinnon. More news when it happens.
Ben: Oh, Jessica can't be alone for this.
Isaac: Neither can you.
Molly: Did something happen? Why is Jessica ready to concede the election?
Lucinda: Madam district attorney has decided that her cause is hopeless. And madam's daughter is trying to talk her out of it.
Bonnie: This is all my fault, isn't it?
Jessica: Bonnie --
Bonnie: No, Marshall must have found out I bugged his room, and he threatened you. He threatened to turn me in unless you conceded, right? I don't believe this! Whatever chance you had was ruined because of me?
Marshall: Not that you deserve an explanation, but here's what actually occurred. Your mother told me what you'd done, and I agreed not to report it. No threats were made. No deals were struck.
Bonnie: All right, then. How'd you like to make a deal with me?
Marshall: When you're finished here --
Bonnie: What's the matter? Are you afraid to hear me out?
Marshall: Make it fast.
Bonnie: I am willing to be arrested for bugging your hotel room. You can look like the victim, just as self-righteous as usual.
Marshall: And what do you get?
Bonnie: I get to tell them about the phone call you made to James Steinbeck.
Carly: The mysterious message luring me down here, the fancy desk, the silver champagne bucket -- I should've known this was nothing but a trick.
Craig: Well, what trick do you think I'm performing here?
Carly: You lay the world at my feet. I take one step in your direction, all of the sudden the floor drops open and I fall right into the shark tank!
Craig: I feel your pain, Carly. To have so little faith in your fellow man.
Carly: You are not my fellow man. [Craig laughs] you are a reptile, Craig, who somehow managed to slither into my life.
Craig: What you see here --
Carly: Is a lie! A hoax. An illusion -- shall I go on?
Craig: Wrong again, oh, blondness. I have closed the New York offices and moved everything here. These are our new corporate offices. You want to see the lease?
Carly: Is there really a play space for Parker?
Craig: A playroom for Parker! A sitting room for the nanny, an intimate gymnasium where you can pump yourself to perfection.
Carly: Okay. I'm impressed.
Craig: Finally! I was afraid I was gonna have to dust off my lounge act just to get you smiling again.
Mover #1: Excuse me. A delivery came for you. Big thing. It's downstairs.
Craig: Excellent! I've been expecting it. Can you bring it up?
Mover #1: I'll get right on it.
Craig: You think the playroom was a big deal? Wait till you see this.
Hal: So, the surgery -- it didn't work?
Bob: Well, we reduced the swelling. The hematoma's gone. But there was shock. Coma is not -- not an unusual response.
Hal: Well, tell me -- exactly what does being in a coma mean for Will?
Bob: Well, it will slow up the healing process considerably. He won't be responsive to you.
Hal: And that's it?
Bob: Will is young. His vitals are very strong. He'll eventually come out of it.
Hal: Fully recovered?
Bob: That's the prognosis at the moment.
Hal: There's more to this, Bob. Give it to me straight.
Bob: You don't want to go there, Hal.
Hal: What are the chances he won't wake up?
Bob: They're very slight. But the possibility does exist.
Hal: Does Barbara know?
Bob: Barbara's very fragile right now. That's why I thought I'd tell you first.
Hal: Thank you. I'll tell her myself.
Bob: Are you sure? Sometimes it's tough for a parent to get the words out.
Hal: Barbara and I haven't been close for a long time, but I'm still Will's father. It's better if she hears it from me.
Bob: Whatever you think is best. Any idea how the fire started? I know you're investigating it.
Hal: Nothing definite, but I've got a lead. I'm following it up.
Aaron: Saw the car outside. Thought maybe Luke may be home from the hospital.
Aaron: What's up, buddy? How's the cough?
Luke: I'm not doing it anymore.
Aaron: That's good. You look pretty good, man. Except what's this right here? Oh!
Luke: Very funny.
Holden: Hey, buddy? You gotta go upstairs and say hello to your mother. You haven't done that yet. Go!
Luke: Are you gonna be here awhile?
Aaron: Yeah, don't worry about it. I'll be back.
Luke: See ya.
Aaron: See ya.
Luke: Hey, Aaron. Thanks for saving my life.
Aaron: You're welcome. There's nothing to it. My parents get off okay?
Holden: Yep. Fine. They -- they want a picture of you on your new bike.
Aaron: I still can't believe you guys bought me one of those. It's like --
Holden: So unlike us?
Aaron: Yeah, hey, you said it, buddy. Not me.
Holden: Well, they're very proud of you. And for the record, so am I.
Aaron: Listen, I got some errands to do at the farm. So tell Luke that I'm gonna call him later.
Holden: Aaron, wait -- when you first came here, you were staying with your grandmother. And that was fine because it gave us a chance to get to know each other and gave you a chance to get settled in. But Abigail is with Molly now. And we have plenty of room here -- I'm sure it would be okay with Faith and Luke. So -- what I'm trying to say is I think that Lily and I would be very happy if you'd move in with us.
Marshall: I make no apologies for speaking to Mr. Steinbeck. That man was my client. I've never made any secret of that.
Bonnie: Please, Mr. Travers, your whole life is a secret. But the truth is going to come out. I will see to that personally.
Jessica: Bonnie -- let's go.
Bonnie: You told Marshall about us bugging his hotel room? Why, mom? What were you gonna gain from that?
Jessica: Time. You committed a crime, sweetheart. If I had tried to cover it up, it just would've inflamed the situation. Travers would have gone to the Press, and you would have been prosecuted. Now it's moot.
Lucinda: Jessica, the media is trickling in. But they can be dispatched if you have changed your mind.
Jessica: That won't be necessary, Lucinda. I'll make my statement in a few seconds.
Lucinda: The polls are still open, Jessica! For heaven's sakes, it's not over until it's over, ya know?
Jessica: Lucinda, thank you. But I've made my decision.
Bonnie: Mom, what if I went to the Press right now and told then about Marshall calling --
Jessica: No, no, sweetheart -- honey. Honey! Listen to me. It's over. I've lost. And accepting that with dignity is important to me.
Bonnie: Mom, wait. There's still a chance you could win here.
Jessica: And how is that, Bonnie?
Bonnie: Well, we may have more on Marshall than we realized.
Jessica: Can you be more specific?
Bonnie: I can't. I can't, not until I talk to Paul Ryan first.
Jessica: Bonnie, unauthorized surveillance is a criminal act. No matter why you do it. Now I know it hurts to lose, but the time has come for all of us to accept the fact that we have, okay? So this election is officially over.
Bonnie: Give up if you want to, mom. I'm not done fighting. Not yet.
Paul: I watched the tape right before you got here. Unfortunately, there was nothing on it.
Jack: You want to try that again? Only this time, tell me the truth.
Paul: I'm not lying, Jack. The tape is worthless.
Cleaning woman: Did you get him, officer?
Jack: Uh, yes. Yes, ma'am.
Cleaning woman: Is he a pervert?
Jack: I'm not sure. I'm gonna take him down to the station and find out.
Cleaning woman: Good for you. A scum like this should be put away for good.
Jack: Yeah, I agree. Thank you. Thank you very much.
Paul: You're taking me in?
Jack: Yeah, I'm gonna confiscate this equipment, too.
Paul: Jack, it's not like you didn't know exactly what we were doing. I specifically --
Jack: Hold it, hold it! Did you say, "we"?
Jack: Does that mean Bonnie or does Jessica know about this, too?
Paul: If she knew, she would've called you herself. Look, the polls are closing in a couple of hours. Just give me a little more time to find something on Travers that we can use.
Jack: I could. It depends.
Paul: On what?
Jack: On whether you let me see that videotape now, or whether I gotta arrest you to get a look at it.
[Cell phone ringing]
Paul: May I?
Jack: Go ahead.
Bonnie: It's me. I couldn't wait any longer. Does that tape have anything incriminating on Travers?
Paul: I can't answer that question right now. I'm being arrested by Jack Snyder.
Jack: Is that really what you want?
Paul: You've got your rules. I've got mine.
Aaron: Moving in would be okay. I mean, I don't snore or anything, so, I mean, you guys don't have to worry about that.
Holden: We weren't worried about that. Not at all.
Aaron: You sure Lily's okay about this? I mean, another person in the house is --
Holden: You're not just "another person." All right? You're my son, and we both love you very much.
Aaron: Well, Holden, I'm gonna help her, then. With Faith, with Luke, chores, groceries -- whatever she needs.
Holden: Well, that's great, but that's not why we're asking you to move in, ya know?
Aaron: Should I, um -- I mean, I don't want to rush things or anything, but should I go get my stuff from grandma's right now?
Holden: Yeah, that would be good. You need any help?
Aaron: No, no, I can manage. Luke'll probably feel better knowing you're around anyways, so --
Holden: Good idea. I'll walk you out. Hey, Hal. How's Will doing?
Hal: He's having a rough time at the moment.
Holden: Sorry about that. Anything we can do?
Hal: Unfortunately, no. Is Luke home? I'd like to ask him some questions about the fire.
Holden: Uh, yeah, he's home, Hal. But I just brought him back from the hospital.
Hal: I promise it won't take long.
Holden: All right, I'll talk to him. Am I gonna see you for dinner?
Aaron: Yeah, I'll call you.
Holden: Okay. I'll be right back.
Aaron: Is there anything you need to ask me?
Hal: There might be, Aaron. I'll let you know.
Aaron: Okay. Well, if you need to reach me, I'll be here. I'm moving in today.
Jack: Have a seat. You buy all this stuff yourself?
Jack: So, it's expensive stuff.
Paul: I'm trying to save this town from being terrorized by James Steinbeck. It didn't seem appropriate to bargain shop.
Jack: How about seeing the tape and cassette folder, Paul? What happened to it?
Paul: Threw it away.
Paul: The incinerator in Marshall's building.
Paul: There was nothing on it. I didn't want the evidence hanging around.
Jack: You're a great guy, Paul. Unfortunately, you're a lousy liar.
Paul: I told you the truth, Jack. The tape doesn't exist anymore.
Jack: Officer. You want to frisk Mr. Ryan, here? I believe he's holding an 8mm videocassette.
Cop: Lift your arms, eyes straight ahead.
Bonnie: Ah, Mrs. Walsh, is there any way that we can postpone this Press conference?
Lucinda: Sure, I can try.
Bonnie: Great, thank you. I will be back as quickly as I can.
Lucinda: Where are you going, darling, and what are the odds in our favor?
Bonnie: I don't want to give anyone false hope, but I could have information that cannot only keep Marshall out of office but destroy him for good.
Lucinda: Darling, my car is downstairs. The driver's name is Fenwick. At your service! Tell him I said so.
Bonnie: Thank you.
Jessica: Congratulations. I hope this job brings you as much satisfaction as it's brought me.
Marshall: And I sincerely hope I can do the job half as well as you did. We're all alone now, Jessica. There's no reason to pretend.
Jessica: I'm not pretending, Marshall. The election's over. And so are we.
Molly: Hey, Isaac.
Molly: Ben, I take it you're here to see Jessica.
Ben: Uh, yeah, you know where she is?
Molly: She's in the office with Travers. Did you know that she just called a Press conference to concede the election?
Ben: Yeah, we heard you announce it on TV.
Molly: So do you think you can talk her out of it?
Ben: That's not why I'm here.
Marshall: Now that the election is over, you're free to see where your heart takes you.
Carly: There's only one thing missing.
Craig: What's that?
Carly: Your office.
Craig: Well, I don't plan on spending a lot of time here.
Carly: You're going to need a desk.
Carly: To hide things from me.
Craig: That's won't be necessary. Besides, if I need a place to put something, I'm sure you could provide it.
Carly: That's what I thought. No, no, no. I am not sharing a desk with you, Craig, or anything else.
Craig: Oh, come on! It was joke! It was joke. We used to have jokes, remember?
Carly: Yeah, I remember. They were right before all the tears.
Craig: Not my fault. As I recall, you --
Carly: I am not going to do this. I am not going to argue with you about the past. The fact is, I am marrying Jack very, very soon. And I gave him my word that my relationship with you would be strictly professional.
Craig: Yeah, and I made the same promise to Rosanna. In writing.
Carly: Well, good. Then why don't we do something different for a change and honor what we said. Stay out of my face, and my desk. The only thing I want to share with you are the profits.
Mover #1: I got that delivery for you, chief. Where do you want it?
Craig: Oh, good. Yeah, right over there. But gently, please. Yeah, that's good. Great. Thank you. That's your surprise.
Carly: Can I peek?
Craig: Yeah, that's your surprise. Go ahead.
Carly: Is this -- our sign?
Craig: Yes! That's our new corporate name, in very large letters.
Carly: Okay, well, I've gotta look.
Craig: Huh? Montgomery -- Carly -- Monte Carlo. You get it? Huh?
Carly: Yeah. Yeah, I get it all right, Craig. And I wanna wring your neck.
Cop: No cassette, detective. He's clean.
Paul: Like I said, Jack, the tape of Travers doesn't exist.
Jack: I want you to tell me exactly what was on that tape.
Paul: Marshall Travers reading -- Marshall Travers sleeping.
Jack: I thought -- I thought you said he used that place for meetings?
Paul: I thought so, too.
Bonnie: Paul, my mother is about to concede this election. I need to talk to you right away.
Jack: Excuse me, Bonnie. He's in custody. This is gonna have to wait.
Bonnie: It can't! Please?
Jack: Okay. But only if you tell me what was on that tape of Marshall's apartment? Eyes on me!
Bonnie: All I saw was Marshall alone in his room.
Jack: Okay, he's all yours. Oh, I'm not leaving.
Bonnie: Did you get to see the rest of the tape?
Paul: I fast-forwarded the whole thing. I missed the details, but I got the big picture.
Bonnie: Which was?
Paul: He was alone all night.
Bonnie: Are you sure?
Bonnie: Maybe we can just look at it again, Paul.
Paul: I got rid of it, Bonnie. It wasn't going to do us any good.
Bonnie: Well, there goes helping my mother.
Paul: I'm sorry.
Bonnie: Me, too. Is there any way we can forget this little thing ever happened?
Jack: Well, that's asking a lot.
Bonnie: So what are you going to do?
Jack: I'll handle it -- my way.
Ben: Jessica? Are you all right?
Ben: I heard on TV that you were conceding the election. I wanted to be here for you.
Jessica: Thank you.
Ben: Does he have anything to do with this?
Jessica: No, the votes weren't there for me. And I saw no point in dragging it out.
Ben: Then why is he here?
Marshall: I'm here to show Ms. Griffin my support.
Ben: Was I talking to you?
Ben: Then stay out of it.
Jessica: Ben -- Ben --
Marshall: The Press is waiting outside. Will you allow me to stand with you at the podium, so we can show a united front?
Ben: Travers, beat it.
Marshall: I'll be outside.
Jessica: It's okay for you to dislike Marshall Travers. But it is not okay for you to make a scene.
Ben: I don't like him being near you. Every time I turn around, there he is.
Jessica: Ben, I know we need to talk, but not right now. Please, I have this Press conference.
Ben: I know. I know. It's not an easy time for you. But I don't even know if you want me here.
Jessica: Please don't -- you haven't given up on us?
Ben: No, I haven't given up. But I have questions that need honest answers.
Jessica: I know. And I will answer them, I promise.
Isaac: How'd it go?
Ben: It didn't.
Ben: I don't even know why she even talks to the man.
Isaac: According to Bonnie, maybe Travers has something he's holding over Jessica's head.
Ben: I've got a bad feeling about this whole thing, bro.
Marshall: That was unpleasant.
Jessica: He knows about us, Marshall. I can see it in his eyes.
Marshall: Then maybe we should go public.
Jessica: Let's get something straight. I will never admit that we were together. And I'm going to convince Ben that I'm committed to him, because that's what I am.
Marshall: Then what about me joining you at the podium? Do you think Dr. Harris can tolerate that?
Jessica: Well, I suppose we should let the public know that we're not enemies. But do not touch me, and do not stand close to me.
Thank you all for coming. I know this was short notice. First, I would like to thank those of you who supported me during this election. It was a very wonderful campaign. And you should be proud of your efforts. I know the polls are still open, but I think it's become clear that t. Marshall Travers will be Oakdale's next district attorney. So I would like to concede the election at this time.
[Audience reacts] I wish Mr. Travers all success in his new position.
Marshall: Thank you.
Jessica: If there are any questions, I'll take them now.
[Talking over each other]
Hal: So, you and Will were in the barn, and you were working on your model. Is that right?
Luke: Well, I was mostly working on it -- by myself.
Hal: Oh. Did you take any breaks while you were in there? Did you do anything else?
Luke: Not really. I was trying to finish it so I could take it to school with me.
Holden: That's Faith. She rings a bell every time Lily needs something.
Hal: Go ahead, Holden. We'll be fine. Now, Luke, you know why I am asking you all these questions, don't you?
Luke: To find out how the fire started in my grandmother's barn.
Hal: That's right. So what I want you to do is tell me exactly what happened right before you smelled the smoke. Now, it doesn't have to be perfect. Just do the best you can.
Luke: All right. I couldn't find the propeller to my model. Will said he didn't know where it was. So I climbed in the hayloft to look for it.
Hal: Why'd you look up there?
Luke: Will threw it up there once before. He said he didn't do it this time, but I had to look.
Hal: Makes sense to me. Did you find it?
Luke: I didn't get a chance. I saw the fire and started calling Will, but he didn't answer. Then the fire got bigger. And then Aaron rushed in and carried me out.
Hal: Do you know where Aaron was before that? In the house or the yard? Maybe he was running an errand for your grandmother?
Luke: I'm not sure. I hadn't seen him for awhile.
Hal: Now, one more question. You ever seen these?
Luke: They're Aaron's. He keeps them in his backpack.
Hal: I'll be back later to speak to Aaron.
Holden: Sorry you had to -- go through that, buddy. Couldn't have been too much fun having to talk about that fire.
Luke: I feel really bad. Especially what happened to Will.
Holden: Don't you worry about Will. Will's gonna be fine. We just have to keep believing that.
Luke: I do. Only --
Luke: Promise not to tell anyone?
Holden: You have my word.
Luke: Will's always grouchy, and he lies about everything. I started wishing I wouldn't see him again. And that's almost what happened.
Holden: Well, that's -- that's not really your fault. Sometimes people get angry with each other, but that doesn't mean that bad things happen.
Luke: How do you know?
Holden: Because if that were the case, you and I would be so powerful that we would make it rain ice cream sundaes all the time.
Luke: You're right. Thanks, dad.
Holden: You betcha. Come here.
Hal: Abigail -- thanks for coming. Can I get you something, something to drink?
Abigail: No, but thanks. I'd rather know why I'm here.
Hal: Have a seat. Have you talked to Aaron about the fire at the Snyder barn?
Abigail: He's my brother. We talk about everything.
Hal: Did he happen to mention how he thought it got started?
Abigail: No. Why would he do that?
Hal: Well, you just said you talk about everything.
Abigail: Well, not everything, I guess. That never came up.
Hal: I just found out today that Will slipped into a coma from the injuries he suffered in that fire.
Abigail: I'm sorry. Is he gonna be okay?
Hal: He's suffering. Along with Luke and Emma and a whole bunch of other people. You can help them, Abigail. Why don't you tell me what you know about that fire?
Jack: I'm going to keep my report on this vague. I'll only press charges if Travers finds out he's being bugged and insists we follow through.
Paul: That's more than fair, Jack. Thanks.
Bonnie: Yes, thank you very much.
Jack: Yeah. Just do me a favor -- stay out of the surveillance game. You're not very good at it.
Paul: Can we go?
Jack: Give me two minutes.
Bonnie: Were you telling the truth? Because there could still be time here.
Paul: You mean about the tape?
Bonnie: Yes! Was there anything we could use against Travers?
Reporter #1: Are you -- are you conceding because of the corruption charges Mr. Travers made against you?
Jessica: Those charges have been put to rest, so I see no point in discussing them further. Again, I want to thank you all. It's been wonderful working with you. And if Mr. Travers is willing, I'm sure he'll take any further questions you might have.
Reporter #2: Mr. Travers -- do you plan to pursue your charges of misconduct against Ms. Griffin?
Marshall: No, I do not. As a matter of fact, if I knew Ms. Griffin then as well I know her now, I wouldn't have made those charges in the first place. Going further, I'd like to take this opportunity to offer Ms. Griffin a position in the district attorney's office working right alongside me.
Molly: Sounds like you're not sure the best person won.
Marshall: That's it for now. I look forward to working with all of you in the future throughout my term. Thank you.
Lucinda: Mr. Travers, you know, you're not going to last -- you and your boss? Because it's a priority, it's top of my list, to make sure that we get you out of office.
Jessica: Hey. That is exactly the sort of thing I did not want you to do.
Marshall: I thought I was being gracious in victory.
Jessica: You were grandstanding at my expense.
Marshall: The job offer I made was serious. I seriously hope you consider it.
Marshall: I see the way you look at me from across the room. I hear your breath catch when I touch you. Deny it if you like, but you can't hide the way you feel.
Aaron: Hey, Luke -- I got something for you.
Luke: I'm here. What is it?
Aaron: It's from grandma to celebrate you coming home from the hospital.
Luke: Chocolate chip cookies? You first.
Aaron: All right. Aw, mm. Oh, man.
Luke: Oh, man.
Aaron: I don't know how she does it.
Luke: You know what grandma told me --
Luke: -- When I was in the hospital? That when your life gets saved, you know you're going to do something special with it.
Aaron: Oh, yeah? So what do you think it's gonna be?
Luke: I don't know. But I know I'm gonna do it with you.
Abigail: If I knew anything about how the fire got started, I would tell you. But I don't. And I don't want to guess.
Hal: You must have an opinion.
Abigail: People's opinions are what put me on trial for murder.
Hal: These were found in the barn after the fire. They belong to Aaron. Whatever is troubling you, I think you should tell me right now.
Abigail: Aaron said he wanted to be a hero, stay in Oakdale and become part of the family.
Hal: He got his wish, too, didn't he? At least for a little while.
Paul: I told Jack the truth about the tape. There was nothing on it we could use against Travers.
Bonnie: He was alone the whole time?
Jack: Sign this. You can leave anytime, Bonnie.
Bonnie: Are you gonna tell my mother, off the record?
Jack: I don't see that serving any purpose. No.
Bonnie: Well, is Paul free to go, too?
Jack: As soon as I have a word with him, in private.
Bonnie: Yeah, well, we did our best. See you at the victory party.
Jack: I know it seems like you're dodging the bullet here, Paul. But there's still an illegal camera in Travers' room. I can't get it out myself without raising questions I don't want to answer.
Paul: So what do we do?
Jack: Pray, cross your fingers. 'Cause if the new district attorney happens to stumble across that equipment, he's gonna bring you down hard and me right along with you.
Craig: The name is great.
Carly: It's an insult, Craig! I will not be associated with that.
Craig: Why not?
Carly: I will not have my name connected with yours in any way. The name of this company will not be, cannot be Monte Carlo!
Craig: What, you want your name first?
Carly: Is that what you think is bothering me?!
Craig: If that sign said "Tenney-Gomery," you'd be covering it with kisses.
Carly: Nothing in this room is getting covered with kisses. As a matter of fact, I will not --
Craig: Hey, what are you doing?
Carly: Just stand back, all right?! I will not have my name associated with yours in any public way! Have I made myself clear? Or do I need to use this on your head?
Jessica: I've made my mistake. I've paid for it. Any further contact with you, on any level, is out of the question.
Marshall: You'll feel differently tomorrow. Lucky for both of us, I'll still feel the same.
Isaac: Look, don't bust Travers' head tonight, okay?
Ben: One good reason I shouldn't?
Isaac: I want to be there when you do it.
Ben: Right. Travers -- I've got a question for you. What do you have on Jessica that forced her to quit?
Paul: Even if Travers does find that camera, there's no way he can trace it back to me.
Jack: He's got the full resources of the D.A.'s office and the Police department behind him. He'll nail us both.
Paul: Maybe he'll give up the apartment before he finds it.
Jack: Yeah, that's what I'm banking on. Listen, I gotta wrap up a few things here. I'll meet you at the party.
Paul: All right. Thanks, man. I owe you.
Jack: Yeah, you do.
Paul: I'm not letting you get away with this, Jessica. You're gonna pay. Tonight.
