Simon: So, are you parked out front?

Margo: Yeah.

Simon: Great. Then we'll walk you out. What do you think?

Margo: Well, I thought you guys were parked out back.

Katie: We are, but we don't mind. Let's go.

Margo: Uh-huh. All right. So, if we've got something to discuss, we can discuss it right here, right now.

Simon: Ah, you're very good. All right, it's about --

John: Well, there you are! How'd the checkup go with Dr. Bartlett?

Margo: Dr. Bartlett said that our recoveries are going very well.

John: Oh! Good, good, good, good. No problem with you going back to work?

Margo: No, no. None whatsoever.

Katie: As long as it's just part-time.

John: Well, of course. I mean, you have to start slow with this thing. And then you gradually build it up and build it up.

Margo: Yeah, yeah. You've made that very clear time after time.

John: Yes, yes, yes. And I know you're going to do what you want to do, anyway, right?

Margo: Yeah.

John: That's not going to stop me from keeping close surveillance on you, though. Okay? Congratulations. Good report. Good report.

Katie: Thank you.

Simon: Don't even try.

John: Okay. See you later.

Margo: Surveillance?

Katie: Oh, no.

Margo: So where were we?

Simon: Smack in the middle of the Aaron Snyder case.

Katie: We've uncovered some important information, Margo. We need your help.

Margo: In what way?

Simon: Well, we want you to get Hal to back off going after Aaron.

Margo: Oh, really? For what reason?

Simon: Well, we don't think Aaron was the one who started the fire.

Margo: Any idea who did?

Katie: Hal's son, Will Munson.

Lucy: Was that your stomach or mine?

Aaron: I'm sorry.

Lucy: It's okay. I'm starving, too. We'd better keep kissing. It's the only thing that takes my mind off everything else.

[Knocking] it's okay. It's Alison.

Alison: Didn't you hear me? I was standing out there for, like, an hour.

Aaron: We were busy.

Alison: So I noticed. What, do you want me to wait in the trunk?

Aaron: Don't give me any ideas, Alison.

Lucy: Okay, you two. Could we just eat? We're starving. What did you get?

Alison: Here. Knock yourselves out.

Aaron: What's this? You were supposed to get food.

Alison: What do you call that, patio furniture?

Aaron: Well, I was hoping for some protein at least! Can I have my change, at least?

Alison: Here. Next time, go yourself.

Aaron: This is three bucks.

Alison: So?

Aaron: I gave you a 20.

Alison: I needed personal items, okay?

Aaron: Personal items like what?

Alison: Facial cleanser. Some medicine.

Aaron: Medicine? You're not even sick.

Alison: Have you ever heard of pain? I have a headache, okay? A really bad headache.

Aaron: You have to be kidding.

Lucy: Aaron.

Aaron: We only have $50. And it was for gas and food! Not your personal use.

Alison: You know what, Aaron? That's tough, because you're not the only one with problems! Everything I've done in the past three weeks has been for you. I -- I broke you out of jail. I ran away from home. And for -- for what? The honor of watching you two drool across each other across the dashboard?

Lucy: Alison's right. We need to back off. I'm serious, Aaron. Just leave her alone.

Marshall: Your honor, because of Mr. Ryan's assets and his connections around the world, the people believe that the defendant is a flight risk, and he should be denied bail.

Paul: Your honor, I find it ironic that I'm being treated like a hardened criminal when the real menace to this town is standing right in your courtroom.

[Pounding gavel]

Judge: Order in the court. Bailiff, remove anyone who isn't seated in the next ten seconds. Ms. Griffin.

Jessica: Your honor, Paul Ryan is a law-abiding citizen with deep roots in this community. As evidence of that, I would like to cite the presence of four prominent citizens who have come to show their support of Mr. Ryan. Ms. Lucinda Walsh. Ms. Walsh, would you stand, please?

Lucinda: Of course.

Jessica: Ms. Lisa Grimaldi. His aunt, Ms. Kim Hughes, and Ms. Nancy Hughes. Should you have any questions regarding Mr. Ryan's character, I'm sure these women would be happy to answer them.

Judge: Thank you, Ms. Griffin. I'll take that under advisement. Ladies, you may be seated.

Jessica: Your honor, Mr. Ryan is not a menace to this community. The risk of him fleeing the jurisdiction and remaining a fugitive is zero. Therefore, I request bail be set at $25,000 and he be released immediately.

Judge: Mr. Travers?

Marshall: Your honor, the defense claims that Mr. Ryan is a model citizen and that he poses no threat to the citizens of Oakdale. Unfortunately, that's a case of selective memory. The truth is Ms. Griffin defended Mr. Ryan before.

Jessica: Objection!

Marshall: When he was accused of the attempted murder of his own father.

Jessica: Objection, your honor!

[Crowd murmuring]

Barbara: That's not the way it happened. That's not what happened.

Carly: Get out! Get out of my house and take your screwy shrink and your bastard son with you! Jack -- I'm sorry. I didn't know what I was saying.

Julia: You heard her, Jack. She hates our baby!

Carly: No. I -- would you stay out of this?

Julia: This boy is my child, and it is my job to protect him from people like you!

Dr. Weiskopf: Take a deep breath. Julia, it does you no good to get upset.

Carly: Jack, would you please get her out of here?

Jack: This visit is over, doctor. Carly and I will work this out by ourselves.

Julia: I will not leave my child in the care of that beast. You heard what she thinks of him. Who knows what she's capable of?

Carly: You keep talking, lady, and you're gonna find out! Jack -- Jack, I'm sorry. Okay? I would do anything to take back those words.

Jack: It's okay. It's okay. I understand.

Julia: You understand? Are you taking her side against your own son? Do you hear this? This is like what you hear about on the news. I mean, who knows? Once we leave, they'll probably let little Jackie just cry his heart out while they do whatever it is they do.

Dr. Weiskopf: That's called projection, Julia, and it's not very healthy. We talked about that.

Julia: You finally have a son, and this is the way you treat him? I mean, I always knew that she would drag you down to her level. But who knew it could happen so fast.

Margo: Are you guys serious? Because if you are serious, then you better have proof that Will started the fire.

Katie: We do.

Simon: We don't.

Margo: Uh-huh.

Simon: But we do have a strong reason to suspect him.

Margo: Okay. Let me hear it.

Simon: Okay. We managed to obtain a copy of Will's hospital admittance form --

Margo: You what?!

Simon: Yeah. Don't ask me how, but I managed to get it 'cause I'm very clever. And as you can see here, along with everything else, head trauma, smoke inhalation -- there. Burns on three of his fingers. Fingertips.

Margo: Wow. It's not surprising. The boy was in a fire.

Katie: Yeah, but isn't it strange that the only burns he got were on the tips of his fingers? Burns that could've easily come from a match.

Margo: Signifying what? He got burns on his fingertips lighting a match to light a fire. That is speculation.

Simon: Look, if nothing else, Margo, it establishes reasonable doubt about Aaron's guilt. Doesn't it?

Katie: Exactly.

Margo: Will already said he was in the barn. He already stated that Aaron started the fire.

Katie: Yeah, but he's a little kid. A scared little kid. I mean, isn't it possible he was just trying to protect himself?

Margo: It is -- possible. Holden mentioned to Tom that he caught Will lying about several different things around the time of the fire.

Simon: Aha! Ah, there you go. That's what 11-year-olds do. They try to find a way to cover their tracks if they're frightened enough.

Margo: But it still doesn't prove anything.

Simon: All right, maybe not. But it's about as much as you've got on Aaron.

Margo: All right, all right, all right. I will try mentioning this to Hal. But I can tell you right now, it's not gonna make a difference.

Simon: Why not?

Katie: Why?

Margo: Because Hal feels in his heart that Aaron Snyder started this fire that put his son, Will, in the hospital. And he's gonna make Aaron pay, no matter what. It's not gonna make a difference.

Simon: Right. If Hal's out of control, then maybe Aaron needs help. What do you think?

Katie: What do you think?

Margo: What are you thinking?

Simon: I'm thinking that maybe we should get to those kids before Hal does.

Aaron: I don't get it. How come everybody's ganging up on me?

Lucy: That's not what's going on here. Here. Wash them down with this.

Alison: Thank you so much.

Aaron: You should probably eat something. If you have a headache, it's probably because you're hung --

Lucy: Aaron -- sometimes you can be really dense.

Aaron: What am I missing here?

Lucy: Everything.

Aaron: Oh. Oh. It's not a headache. I'm -- I'm sorry, Alison. I --

Alison: Did I ask for your sympathy? Will you stop looking at me?!

Aaron: Okay! Ugh. I'm gonna go get some burgers. Is that okay with you?

Alison: No, no, just -- some tea, please?

Lucy: Yeah, peppermint, if they've got it.

Aaron: I'll find it. Feel better, okay? I'll be back.

Lucy: Here. Chocolate always helps.

Alison: Thanks.

Jack: No one is going to neglect this baby, Julia. All you have to do is take one good look at Jackie and see how well taken care of he's been. Carly has worked just as hard as I have at that. We have both been up all night walking the floors with him. So you can stop it with the accusations right now!

Julia: Look how innocent he is. He has no idea they're ganging up on him.

Dr. Weiskopf: That hardly seems to be the case. Words were exchanged in the haste. That's all that's happened.

Julia: She insulted my child.

Jack: Yes, and she apologized for it. So let's drop it.

Julia: She did not apologize to me. And she did not apologize to Jackie.

Carly: Let me take the baby, Julia.

Julia: I will not.

Carly: He needs to be upstairs, away from this tension. Okay?

Julia: You take him, Jack. I -- I don't want her touching our baby.

Jack: Carly has fed and diapered and held this baby, Julia. She's trying to do right by him right now, so let her.

Julia: Will you go with her? It's the only way that I'll feel comfortable.

Dr. Weiskopf: Ms. Tenney is a mother herself. Surely, she --

Julia: No! Do it! Or I'll have my mother rent me another shrink.

Dr. Weiskopf: Ahem. Perhaps it's not a bad idea for you and Julia to speak privately? There we go.

Carly: We won't be long.

Julia: Well, Jack -- you got a real problem on your hands. Your new wife doesn't think very much of your son.

Jack: That's not true, Julia.

Julia: You heard what she called him. Do I have to repeat it?

Jack: She didn't mean it.

Julia: Then why did it bother you so much?

Jack: What do you want me to say?

Julia: Jack, now that we've finally become parents, I --

Jack: No, no. That has yet to be proven. I'm still not convinced that little Jackie is my son.

Julia: Do you want him to be? It's a tough question, isn't it? It wouldn't be if your wife would participate --

Jack: No, no. She is not the problem here.

Julia: Are you saying I am?

Jack: We both know that this is a very difficult situation. I know that you want what's best for your son.

Julia: You're patronizing me, Jack. You know how angry that makes me.

Jack: Nothing is going to happen until I take that paternity test, Julia.

Julia: You know, that's exactly what I was thinking. Because once it's proven that Jackie is your son, that's when everything's really gonna hit the fan.

Jack: Meaning what?

Julia: Well -- you'll be living with a woman who hates your own flesh and blood. And that's when this joke that you're calling a marriage is gonna go right out with the bath water.

Jessica: Your honor, the new District Attorney is way out of line here. That accusation has absolutely no bearing on this case.

Marshall: Your honor, Mr. Ryan has already admitted that, when he murdered Brandy Taylor --

Jessica: Allegedly murdered.

Marshall: -- "Allegedly" murdered Brandy Taylor, he thought he was killing his father.

Jessica: If there's a point to this, it went right over my head.

Marshall: Your honor, it establishes the fact that Mr. Ryan has a basic disregard for human life. Furthermore, I have witnesses that will testify that Mr. Ryan was carrying a handgun in the days prior to his alleged murder of Ms. Taylor. And that he swore he would kill his father, would James Steinbeck return to Oakdale.

Jessica: The handgun was registered, your honor. And any comments Paul Ryan supposedly made must be considered hearsay.

Marshall: Ms. Griffin introduced several local citizens who support Mr. Ryan's release on bail. I'd like to introduce an opposing viewpoint -- by someone who knows Mr. Ryan very well.

Judge: I don't see why not. Go ahead.

Marshall: Mr. Steinbeck, would you please take the stand?

Paul: Your honor! You can't let him speak! He's never told the truth in his entire life!

Judge: Mr. Ryan, contain yourself.

Jessica: Your honor, I must protest. Mr. Steinbeck has been a notorious figure in Oakdale for over two decades.

Marshall: Ms. Griffin, you've argued that your client's background should have no bearing on this decision. Why should Mr. Steinbeck not be subject to the same consideration?

Judge: Mr. Travers, Ms. Griffin -- this judgment belongs to me. Mr. Steinbeck, raise your right hand. Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?

James: I do.

Judge: Mr. Travers, I hope you know where this is going.

Marshall: I do, your honor. Thank you. Please state your name.

James: James Steinbeck.

Marshall: Are you the defendant's father?

James: That's correct.

Marshall: And how would you characterize this relationship?

James: Sadly, my son and I have never been very close. As a matter of fact, he's threatened my life on a number of occasions.

Marshall: And given the chance, do you think your son would make good on those threats?

James: Yes, I believe he would.

Marshall: Is it your feeling, then, that your son should remain in jail until and if he's cleared of the changes against him?

Jessica: Your honor, I must strongly object. This is not a trial. This is an arraignment. And Mr. Steinbeck's testimony is hardly appropriate. And, if it were, we can't take it at face value.

Judge: I'll allow it. Answer the question, please.

James: Well, this is not that easy to say. No father wants to see his son in jail. Yet, in all honesty --

Barbara: This man is evil personified! How can you even give him a platform in your court, judge?!

Judge: Madame, please! This is not a town meeting!

Barbara: Please hear me out! I am Paul Ryan's mother. I know this man better than anyone else does in this world. I was married to him once, many years ago. And this year, God help me, I married him again.

[Crowd murmuring]

Nancy: I can't believe it. You're kidding me.

[Crowd murmuring]

Carly: Sorry to disturb you. The baby needs a bottle.

Julia: He has a name! It's Jackie! Do I have to tattoo that on his chest for you? Do you see what I mean? She doesn't even consider him a person.

Jack: You know, what I see is a woman who spent her wedding night caring for the child of a woman who once tried to kill her. I think that shows a lot of class.

Julia: Class? You wouldn't even know the meaning of the word. First you knock me up, and then you don't even have the --

Jack: What, what? Having sex with you wasn't exactly voluntary on my part, Julia.

Julia: Do you really think anybody's gonna believe that? The big strong detective being overpowered by his delicate ex-wife? Come on. You wanted me to take advantage of you, Jack. And you loved every minute of it.

Jack: I'm warning you, lady. I swear to God, one more word out of your mouth --

Carly: Everything okay?

Jack: Yeah. Julia was just about to go feed her child.

Julia: Don't bother showing me the way. I know where the nursery was supposed to be.

[Jack groaning]

Carly: I hate that woman. She takes me places I never want to go.

Jack: Yeah, you and me both.

Carly: Hey. Is there any way I can make it better? What I said about Jackie --

Jack: Hey, you apologized. As far as I'm concerned, that's the end of it.

Carly: You sure?

Jack: Besides, after I take that paternity test, we might not have to deal with this ever again.

Carly: Well, did you get an appointment time? 'Cause if you didn't, then we need to call John again.

Jack: Why don't we go to the hospital right now? You, me and the baby.

Carly: That sounds fine with me. But do Julia and her keeper have to come with us?

Jack: I wish I could say no, but she'll probably find a way to insist. And you and I both know she's got a team of lawyers to back her up.

Carly: I guess you're right.

Jack: I'll grab Jackie, and I'll meet you in the car. I'll call John on the way, tell him we're headed.

Carly: Okay. Hey, Jack. I -- I don't hate that baby. And if he is yours, I will learn to love him. I will.

Jack: So will I.

Lucy: You feeling any better?

Alison: That painkiller finally kicked in. Thanks for handling Aaron. I probably should have told him I had my period, but -- I don't know. It suddenly just felt really weird talking about it to a guy. I don't think he wanted to know.

Lucy: He probably didn't. My dad still gets all weird if he sees a box of tampons in the bathroom.

Alison: Really?

Lucy: He thinks I don't notice when he starts looking at me like I'm going to faint or something. He starts saying, "would you like to lie down?" Or, "let me get you a blanket."

Alison: What's with guys, anyway? Are they just ignorant, or what?

Lucy: I'm hardly the expert. But it just seems like guys like to keep it simple. You know, you win the game. You lose the game. You're my friend. You're my enemy. I love steak. I hate shopping. I guess when it comes to a woman's body, there are just too many variables.

Alison: You know, I -- I always thought you were so pampered and so sheltered that you couldn't possibly know what the real world was like. And -- now, it seems like you know more about guys than I do.

Lucy: I was lucky. I -- I grew up with a brother.

Alison: Yeah. You must miss him.

Lucy: Bryant's been dead for over a year now. But I still get the impulse to call him and tell him about my life. Then I have to remember he's gone, all over again.

Alison: Wow. That's rough.

Lucy: You know, I could talk to him about anything. You know, big stuff or stupid stuff. He'd always be interested.

Alison: I saw him once at the mall with his girlfriend Jennifer Munson. He was really hot.

Lucy: He was such a great person, too. You know, nice, without being obvious about it. You know what I mean?

Alison: Yeah, I do. I always wanted to grow up with a brother. Actually, I wish I had one right now.

Lucy: How come?

Alison: Maybe a brother would tell me what's wrong with me.

Lucy: Alison, there's nothing wrong with you.

Alison: Oh, come on! Don't you think it would help me if I know why most people always seem to have a problem with me?

Lucy: That's not really a fair question.

Alison: Maybe not. But -- I'd like to know the answer. And I'd like it to come from you, Luce.

Barbara: I will not let you hurt our son again!

Paul: Mother!

[Slams fist] sit down!


Judge: One more outburst, Mr. Ryan, and I will have you removed from this courtroom.

Barbara: Why do you keep coming to this town to torture us?!


Judge: Bailiff, remove this woman from the courtroom!

Bailiff: Are we going to need handcuffs here?

Barbara: No, I'll go quietly. Paul -- I was just trying to help.

Judge: One more disruption from anyone and I will clear the gallery. Ms. Griffin, Mr. Travers, any further argument on the issue of bail?

Marshall: Your honor, I think it's clear that Mr. Ryan is a very angry man.

Jessica: Objection.

Judge: Overruled. Bail is denied Mr. Ryan. He will be remanded to the Oakdale jail, where he shall remain until his trial. Court adjourned.

[Pounds gavel]

[crowd murmuring]

Bonnie: You, sir, are a liar and a killer. And you've gone unpunished long enough. And from this moment on, it is my personal mission to put you behind bars.

Bonnie: So are you not gonna say anything in your defense? Are you so far gone that you don't even know when you've done something wrong, Mr. Steinbeck?

Jessica: Bonnie, I don't know what you think you're doing, but I want you to stay away from this man.

James: You know, Jessica, I can empathize with you. I have trouble controlling my child as well.

Bonnie: Mother, I am not afraid of this man. And I do not need someone to run interference for me.

Jessica: Okay, back off!

Bonnie: I -- not until I'm done with Mr. Steinbeck --

Jessica: You are done. You are done right now!

Bonnie: Mom!

Jessica: Go!

James: You know, your daughter is so fortunate to have such a protective mother.

Jessica: Don't you forget it.

Paul: Under no circumstances are you to have contact with my father again.

Bonnie: I just had to tell him what I thought of him, Paul.

Paul: Once you cross him, he never forgets you.

Bonnie: Your father needs someone to stand up to him. Okay? And if that has to be me, fine. I'm ready.

Jessica: Bonnie, I need you to --

Bonnie: I have to go, mom.

Jessica: Paul, this is only temporary. I'll file a new petition as soon as I get back to my office.

Paul: I am not concerned about that right now. Bonnie has got --

Bailiff: Mr. Ryan, it's time to go.

Paul: I am speaking to my lawyer, all right?

Jessica: Paul, I'll meet with you later today. Don't worry. I will not stop fighting to get you out.

Simon: All right, you start packing, and I'll get the maps. And maybe some food. What do you want? Sandwiches? Vegemite sandwiches? Does that good?

Katie: Yeah. Wait. Simon -- I just wanted to thank you.

Simon: What for?

Katie: For -- not trying to talk me out of going with you.

Simon: Come on, baby. Why would I do that? I mean, this is just what we do, you know? We chase after people in Oakdale who've got troubles.

Katie: Right. Yeah. Absolutely. Just as long as you're cool with it.

Simon: You want to tell me what's really bothering you?

Katie: Nothing.

Simon: What, are you disappointed that I didn't insist that you stay home?

Katie: Well, I did just get through with major surgery. And Dr. Bartlett did not say I was doing "great." He said I was doing "fine."

Simon: All right. Maybe we should get something straight. Sit down. Sit. Listen -- not too long ago, I stood by and watched as you almost slipped away from me. And during those awful moments, the worst moments of my life, I knew more than ever how much I truly loved you. Love you. Okay? And I swore to myself that I would never ever want you to be anyone but yourself, you, the whole package. So if you want to stay here? That's fine with me. If you want to come with me while I chase after some teens and their hormones, then I'm not gonna stop you. You just do what you do best, baby. That's be yourself.

Katie: You should write poetry. You know that?

Simon: Yeah, well, I do know some dirty limericks. There once was a man from Nantucket --

Katie: Oh, everybody knows that limerick.

Simon: Maybe I should go and get ready.

Katie: Right. Okay, wait. But first I want to thank you properly.

Simon: You've already done that. You've done just fine.

Katie: I can do better. If you know what I mean, Mr. Man from Nantucket.

Simon: Oh. Oh, you mean, thank me with your entire body.

Katie: Mm-hmm. Oh, and mind. You can't forget the mind.

Simon: Oh, I'd never forget your mind. That's why I'm gonna quiz you about it afterwards.

Lucy: You promise you won't get mad?

Alison: Promise.

Lucy: You're always reminding everyone how hard your life has been.

Alison: What? How can you say that?

Lucy: You told me to be honest.

Alison: I -- I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Go ahead. Go ahead.

Lucy: It's like this flag you wave to get attention. And you really don't need it, because you're such an interesting person, all on your own.

Alison: You really think that?

Lucy: Of course I do. You're smart and funny. And you're not afraid of anything.

Alison: Thanks. But weren't we supposed to be working on what's wrong with me?

Lucy: You want more? Okay. Well, you're not very good at thinking things through.

Alison: Give me an example.

Lucy: Taking that picture of Aaron and me on his bike and then showing my father.

Alison: Well, you guys were ignoring me.

Lucy: Even if we were, how was getting me in trouble gonna make things better? It's like you're your own worst enemy, and you don't even know it.

Alison: Emily says the same thing. But she's wrong a lot.

Lucy: See, that's another thing. You never listen when people are trying to help you.

Alison: Well, why am I supposed to listen when they don't know what they're talking about!

Lucy: Well, sometimes. But sometimes they do. And if you don't listen to what they're saying, you're gonna keep making the same mistakes.

Alison: So what? I'm just this total loser?

Lucy: No. Not at all. You're just -- you need to use your abilities in a more positive way.

Alison: Kind of like spider-man, huh? I mean, he could use his powers for evil. But, instead, he's a hero.

Lucy: Yeah. Just don't go climbing any buildings, all right? It's a lot more dangerous than it looks.

Alison: You're a trip.

Lucy: You, too, Alison. I'm really glad you're my friend.

Alison: Me, too.

Aaron: Is it safe?

Alison: Not for you.

Julia: Is Carly here? Or did she have the decency to wait in the cafeteria?

Jack: She's parking the car. She'll be up any minute.

John: Jack -- we just got your message. We're setting up for a DNA test as soon as possible.

Julia: John, how lovely to see you again.

John: Hello, Julia. How are you? Dr. Weiskopf.. Jack, can I talk to you for a minute? Excuse us.

Jack: Yes.

John: Is there any possibility that this child is yours?

Jack: Yes.

John: This woman is totally deranged. You know that?

Jack: I understand that. It's a long story, John.

Carly: And none of it is Jack's fault.

Jack: I can handle this, Carly.

Carly: I just want John to know the facts.

Jack: And I don't want you to speak for me. Okay? Please.

Carly: Excuse me.

Jack: I know that Julia is off the wall. But I was married to her before all that, and if this child is mine, no matter how it happened, I want to do right by that child.

John: So you're prepared to take care of this child?

Jack: Yes.

John: Okay. Then we'd better get this done as quick as possible. If you two will wait here, I'm going to set up cubicle three with Jack and the child. All right?

Julia: Okay. Good-bye, my love. I'll miss you. Don't you ever forget how wonderful you are. You are the sun and the moon and the oceans --

Jack: Are you finished?

Julia: Not by a long shot.

Carly: You're not gonna win this time, Julia.

Julia: Oh, no? Why's that?

Carly: Because I'm onto you.

Jessica: How do you live with yourself? You've aligned yourself with one of the sickest human beings on the planet, who destroys people for sport. And you're using your job to help him do it.

Marshall: You have no proof of that.

Jessica: Not yet. But I intend to get it.

Marshall: Look, I'm begging you -- for your own safety, drop this case!

Kim: Barbara, you have got to stop flying into these rages. You don't help yourself or anybody else.

Barbara: What do you expect me to do? They're calling my son a menace to the community? And you and I both know that James is probably behind this. He probably killed Brandy Taylor himself. You know that, Kim.

Kim: I -- I do. Honey --

James: Darling, you will join me for dinner tonight.

Barbara: I wish you were dead.

James: All marriages have their little ups and downs. This, too, will pass. I'll be waiting for you.

Lucinda: I'm very, very surprised that you got married again. You don't have much luck with marriage.

James: But, you see, I think Barbara's worth it.

[Lucinda laughs]

James: Ms. McKechnie. Glad I ran into you. I'm glad we have a chance to chat further.

Bonnie: I have nothing further to say to you, Mr. Steinbeck.

James: But I have something to say to you. I do not like being threatened. Understand?

Carly: I've spent a lot of time with your child, Julia. You could even say that I've studied him. When I give him his bottle, I see how he responds. You can't fool a real mother, honey. That baby is not a newborn.

Julia: Jackie is six weeks old. Can I help it if he's mature for his age?

Carly: He weighs over 15 pounds!

Julia: He's an excellent eater. We should be grateful for that.

Carly: Have you ever tried to nurse him?

Julia: I couldn't. He was premature. He had a very difficult time, and he couldn't get full. And so then he would cry because he was so hungry. I couldn't bear to see him so unhappy.

Carly: Bull. You are no more attached to that little boy than you are to anything else.

Julia: What are you saying?

Carly: That this "earth mother" act of yours is just that, an act. And little Jackie Jr. or whatever his name is --

Julia: Dr. Weiskopf? Could you come here?

Dr. Weiskopf: Yes. What is it?

Julia: It's happening again. I -- I can't get my breath.

Dr. Weiskopf: It's a little anxiety attack. Give it a name, Julia. Identify the problem.

Julia: Um, I feel -- inadequate as a mother. I want Jackie Jr. to be happy, but I'm not sure how to do it.

Dr. Weiskopf: Do you love your baby?

Julia: I do. Very much.

Dr. Weiskopf: Have you tried your best to provide for him?

Julia: I brought him to his father, because I thought that was the right thing to do. But now everyone's angry at me.

Dr. Weiskopf: Is that your fault? Are you responsible for how other people feel?

Julia: No. I'm not. Thank you. I feel so much better.

Simon: Okay, the last two places the kids have been spotted are Franklin College in Indiana and, according to Holden, at Ohio State in Columbus.

Katie: Okay. So, so far, they're moving east. We just have to figure out where they would go next.

Simon: Any idea how we're gonna do that?

Katie: Well, it seems that they have an affinity to college campuses, so we just have to figure out the distance between Franklin and Ohio State and then find the next college campus that far east.

Simon: Yeah. Yeah, no, that's brilliant. And exactly what I was thinking, too.

Katie: I'm sure.

Simon: Yeah. All right, so -- according to this scale -- all right? -- That's 200 miles. They're here right now, so 200 miles east would be --

Katie: Pittsburgh.

Simon: Pittsburgh. Any colleges there.

Katie: I'm sure. Let me find out. Let's see. Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh. Yes, there are a few, actually, which would broaden our choices.

Simon: All right. And which one's the biggest?

Katie: Um -- University of Pittsburgh, it looks like.

Simon: Then we'll start there.

Katie: Great.

Simon: Give it a shot.

Katie: You think this 200-mile theory is gonna work?

Simon: Well, it's all we've got to go on, so let's give it a go.

Katie: All right. You want to make the plane reservations, or should I?

Simon: I'll get the phone. You pack.

Katie: Simon?

Simon: Yes? What now, sweet cheeks?

Katie: Working with you is the best job I've ever had.

Simon: Aw. Same here, baby.

Katie: Good.

Aaron: We're right outside Pittsburgh. If we leave now, we should make it by tonight.

Lucy: What do you think we'll do about money?

Aaron: Well, we have enough to fill up the tank one more time. Then we'll improvise.

Alison: Can we go to a motel tonight? I could really use a hot shower.

Aaron: The campsite outside Pittsburgh is the best you can do. And tomorrow, we'll check out the colleges in town.

Alison: Oh, well, are there a lot?

Lucy: Probably quite a few.

Alison: Well, know which one's the biggest?

Lucy: University of Pittsburgh, I guess.

Aaron: Then we'll start there. Okay. You guys ready? Let's go.

[Engine starts]

Julia: You know, I really feel so much better. Would you mind getting me a glass of water?

Dr. Weiskopf: Of course. Please continue your visualization exercises while I'm gone.

Julia: I will. I promise.

Julia: You know -- I'm a sick woman, Carly. And it really wasn't very nice of you to upset me like that.

Carly: You are using an innocent child to worm your way back into Jack's life. That baby isn't his.

Julia: Think what you want. Jack is taking a paternity test, and the truth will be known soon enough. I am competent, and I am confident. No one can hurt me unless I allow it. I am competent, and I am confident. And no can hurt me unless I allow it.

John: Thank you. All right, Jack. The technician will be here any minute. Now, he's gonna take a blood sampling from you and a saliva sampling from the child.

Jack: It's not gonna hurt him, is it?

John: No, no, no. They use a cotton swab in the mouth. He won't even know what's happened.

Jack: That's great. Thank you for all your help. I appreciate it.

John: I'll be back.

Jack: Okay. Hey, pal. Everything's gonna be okay. All right, you just rest easy.

Bonnie: Hey, wait, wait!

Paul: Hey, Bonnie. I thought you left.

Bonnie: Hey. I think I've got an idea on how to connect Steinbeck to your room on the night Brandy was murdered.

Paul: Bonnie, Bonnie -- stay out of this. I don't want you to get hurt.

Bonnie: I won't. I know what I'm doing.

Paul: Bonnie, look what happened to me. You want this for yourself? I might never be a free man again. Please.

Marshall: Jessica, today was batting practice. And the games have yet to begin. But this is not a game. Don't you understand? Not this time!

Jessica: I look forward to it.

Marshall: Damn it, woman! I'm trying to protect you!

Jessica: Then why are you working for Steinbeck? Cut him loose now, and the two of us can bring him down together!

Marshall: That's not gonna happen. Look, I love you. I wanna be with you. But I won't sacrifice myself in order to make you proud. Look, if one of us is going to be destroyed by this, it's gonna be you.
