Katie Cook: Hello, Delphi house! [Cheers] I'm Katie Cook, from CMT -- Country Music Television. I'll be your host for this afternoon. And we have a killer show lined up, starting off with a guy I know real well. He's here to sing his hit song, Chase the sun. Please welcome to Vanderbilt University, Shannon Lawson!


Time is sand just sifting through my hands

Gonna live as long and loud as I can

When the wind carries me high above the tallest tree

Gary: Is this party smoking, or what?

Aaron: Yeah. I'm looking for Gary.

Gary: Then you're looking at the right guy.

Aaron: Great. Well, somebody told me you were the president of this fraternity?

Gary: A Delphi brother all the way. What can I do you for?

Aaron: I was wondering if my friends and I can join your party.

Gary: Sure! Yeah, just grab a plate, grab some soda. And make yourself at home, man.

Alison: Really? You mean that?

Gary: Yeah, make yourself at home.

Alison: We also kinda need a place to crash for tonight, also.

Lucy: You know, to shower and change clothes.

Aaron: We've been on the road for a real long time.

Zander: We've been keeping up with the whole story. You guys rock.

Gary: So you're the infamous Oakdale three, huh?

Alison: That would be us.

Aaron: I hope that doesn't change your mind about helping us out.

Gary: What, are you kidding me? One thing we've got plenty of down here is southern hospitality. So, hey, can we get our new friends here some sodas and some chips?

Aaron: Thanks, man.

Gary: Make yourself at home.

Lucy: Thank you. Thank you very much.

Gary: You're welcome. So, you're a Shannon Lawson fan?

Alison: I am now.

Aaron: Alison? I know you hate the words, "low profile," but can you try this time, please?

Gary: Listen. Don't worry about a thing, man. Everybody here knows who you are. And they're all pulling for you. Delphi brothers will make sure nobody rats you out.

Aaron: All right. Cool. Thanks a lot.

Alison: Cool, thanks.

Isaac: Didn't your mama ever teach you to lock the door?

Bonnie: My mother actually taught me a lot of things, especially how to treat people you say you love.

Isaac: About yesterday -- I'm sorry. It was the wrong place, the wrong time --

Bonnie: Yeah, well, I would actually call it rude. But, hey, that's just me.

Isaac: Well, that's why I'm here. I never should have teed off on Marshall Travers at Thanksgiving.

Bonnie: Well, it was more than just your words, Isaac.

Isaac: I hear you. I really didn't have the holiday spirit.

Bonnie: No, you didn't. What you did have was a lot of attitude, a lot of anger and your insinuations and --

Isaac: You can stop anytime. It's me.

Bonnie: I know you're angry with me. But you gotta trust me here, honey.

Isaac: Let's talk about that over breakfast.

[Bonnie sighs]

Bonnie: I can't. I can't. I have to run an errand.

Isaac: So we'll do it together.

Bonnie: Well, actually, it's a girl thing. So I'll just catch you later at Java.

Isaac: Yeah, right -- see, a "girl thing" -- you sometimes wonder why I find it difficult to trust you? A girl thing?

Bonnie: Do you know what I really wish?

Isaac: Tell me.

Bonnie: I wish that we spent a nice, quiet evening alone together, counting our blessings instead of arguing over Marshall Travers.

Isaac: And I wish I were sure that he and your mother have nothing to hide. I mean, if she cheated on Ben with that man --

Bonnie: Don't go there, Isaac.

Isaac: He deserves better than being the last person to know. If you just tell me that I'm way off base, I'll let it go.

Bonnie: I'm telling you to just drop it!

Ben: Hey. I thought I heard your voice down here, Isaac.

Jessica: Good morning.

Ben: Yeah. Morning.

Bonnie: Good morning.

Ben: Is it?

Bonnie: Hey -- I really gotta go. I gotta run some errands. Mom, I'll call you later.

Jessica: Okay.

Bonnie: Isaac, I'll see you later.

Ben: You two okay?

Isaac: Yeah, everything is fine. I was just apologizing for what I said yesterday.

Ben: I hear you. No problem. Travers has a way of pushing everybody's button. Right, Jess?

Isaac: Look, I should be running. I got an order coming at the Java.

Ben: You sure everything's okay?

Isaac: As far as I've been told, everything is fine.

Ben: Hmm. He used to be a much better liar.

Jessica: Yeah. What's with him?

Ben: I was hoping you'd tell me.

Molly: No, it's fine. We'll be glad to. And I think Mike will love the idea. Yeah. All right. Sure, I'll see you soon.

Mike: Hey. Where do you want this box of concrete?

Molly: Real funny. The bedroom!

Mike: More clothes?

Molly: Yeah, well, you know what? Successful anchorwomen need a lot of -- those aren't even clothes, okay? These are shoes to match the clothes. Oh, you know what? These -- you should see the way these look with my slinky red suit.

Mike: I still think we should do something to mark the day my work boots had to make room for your leather pumps.

Molly: I'm open to suggestions.

Mike: Really? How about our own little private fashion show? You can model your birthday suit for me.

Molly: I would love to, but -- I have to break some news to you, Mike. I think our plans are gonna change a little, because I just found out that we're expecting a tiny little visitor in the very near future.

Jack: I told you I'd run to the store on my way back home.

Carly: I -- I needed some air, anyway.

Jack: Did you get something for your stomach?

Carly: Uh-huh.

Jack: Good. Good. Rest. I'm gonna drop the baby off at Molly's.

Carly: No. No, Jack, I can watch him. I don't think I'm contagious.

Jack: I want you off your feet. And that's an order.

Carly: But I'm fine.

Jack: Fine? People who are fine don't turn green at the smell of food.

Carly: But I wanted to be with you in court today.

Jack: Oh, please. The custody hearing is gonna be a slam dunk. We've got the DNA results. We've got the sworn testimony from Dr. Weiskopf. There's not a judge in the world who wouldn't award me custody of Jackie Jr.

Carly: Wow. It suddenly seems so real, doesn't it?

Jack: Oh, yeah.

Carly: So permanent.

Jack: We are gonna be a family, Carly -- the four of us. Isn't that something? I mean, I find myself talking at the station about "our boys." Our boys. It just slips out of my mouth. I gotta tell you, it feels good. Oh, who am I kidding? It feels great.

Carly: Great. Good luck.

Jack: Hey. I don't need luck. 'Cause I got you. See you later.

Carly: Get a grip, girl. Who's afraid of a little pregnancy test? Me.

Mike: Whoa! What are you doing?

Molly: Moving in.

Mike: No, give me that.

Molly: No, I can handle it --

Mike: No, you're not lifting anything.

Molly: Mike, I'm fine. You go grab that other box.

Mike: No, we're not grabbing anything. You're not moving anything. You just said that you're expecting a little visitor.

Molly: So?

Mike: So you need to take care of yourself.

Molly: Why are you -- you don't think that -- no, honey, I'm not. Jack called, and he wanted to know if we would watch the baby while he went to his custody hearing this morning.

Mike: Jackie? Jackie's our little visitor?

Molly: Yeah.

Mike: I knew that. I did.

Molly: Yeah. Uh-huh. That's why it took so long for the blood to race back to your face?

Mike: No, having a baby would be incredible, you know. Someday in the future.

Molly: Yeah, yeah. I think we just take it one commitment at a time.

Mike: I think after the baby leaves, we need to have that "welcome to the first day in our new home" celebration. What do you say?

Molly: I'd love that.

Mike: Yeah? We're gonna make it a date. Let's make all of them a date, all of our anniversaries -- the day we first met, the day we officially began our life together.

Molly: And the day that I first looked in your eyes and realized that I would learn to be happy again.

Carly: Okay. Here goes.

[Doorbell rings] just a second.

Carly: Hi.

Emily: Hi. Bad time?

Carly: Aren't they all?

Emily: Can I come in, anyway?

Carly: Yes.

Emily: Jack around?

Carly: No, no. He -- he just left for the baby's custody hearing.

Emily: So how's it going?

Carly: It's going. Did you find Hal?

Emily: Oh, yeah. Yeah, I caught up to him in a rundown motel room eating a turkey sub.

Carly: Happy Thanksgiving?

Emily: Well, it went from bad to worse. Really. I tried to get him to come home with me, you know? By telling him how much I needed him.

Carly: And he dug in his size 10s and said that he wouldn't be coming home until he had Aaron Snyder in the back of a squad car.

Emily: Yeah. More or less. How'd you know?

Carly: Well, I have gone a few rounds with Hal's stubborn streak myself.

Emily: The man is obsessed with proving that Aaron started this fire. It's ridiculous. The whole town knows he didn't do it.

Carly: Well, everybody except Hal.

Emily: No, he knows. Deep down, he knows the truth. He knows that Will started that fire.

Carly: You're probably right. It doesn't make any sense, but Hal needs to prove to you and to everybody that no child of his could be so screwed up that he'd take a match to Emma's barn. He can live with looking like a fool, but he can't live with that.

Emily: Yeah, well, guess what? I can't live like this, Carly. I mean, what am I supposed to do here? I'm supposed to be a cheerleader for his one-man army? He actually told me that if I don't support what he's doing, we have nothing left.

Carly: Don't believe the words of a desperate man. Believe in how you felt when you first saw him there in that motel. In those first few seconds, who did you see?

Emily: The man who made me forget how much I distrust men.

Carly: And he's still there. And there's no way he would risk losing you over Aaron Snyder.

Emily: I'm not so sure, Carly. I'm really not. I just feel like everything is just shot to pieces. And nothing short of a miracle is gonna put us back together again.

Holden: Excuse me. I don't mean to bother you, but we could really use some help.

Joy: Are you lost or something?

Craig: No. Have you heard of the "Oakdale three"? We hear they're talked about on a lot of campuses these days.

Joy: I've heard of them.

Holden: We have reason to believe that they might've been headed here.

Joy: To Vanderbilt? Are you sure about that?

Holden: We're not asking you to snitch.

Joy: You're telling me you're not the Police?

Craig: Absolutely not.

Holden: Two of them are our children. There's something that they need to know. Anything you could tell us would really help them out.

Joy: I'm sorry. I really haven't seen them.

Craig: You sure?

Joy: I'm a double major -- photography and psych. So I know what I see, and I remember when I see it. And that's the same thing I told that really intense-looking guy who asked me about them just a few minutes ago. Excuse me.

Craig: Yeah.

Holden: Intense?

Craig: Hal.

Holden: Hal.

Craig: We've got to get to him before he gets to those kids.

Holden: Let's go.

Ben: Bonnie and Isaac were sure putting off a strange vibe. I'd sure like to know what it is.

Jessica: Well, you know, couples have their rough patches.

Ben: Their rough patch has a name -- T. Marshall Travers.

Jessica: The mere mention of the man's name almost ruined our Thanksgiving. Does it have to spoil our morning coffee?

Ben: You don't think he's part of the mix?

Jessica: Well, I don't know. But whatever it is, I'm sure it's gonna work itself out. Listen, I've gotta get to the Police station. I've gotta take care of some things with Paul's case. So, um -- I'll see you later. Okay. Have a good day. Lisa --

Lisa: I was just going to -- I'm sorry. I know I should have called you.

Jessica: No, it's okay. I'm sorry. I gotta run.

Lisa: Well, I -- just thank you so much for yesterday. It was really just lovely, both of you.

Jessica: Yeah, it's wonderful. We really all have a lot to be thankful for. So I'll see you later.

Lisa: All right.

Jessica: Okay.

Lisa: Bye bye.. I'll just take a minute of your time, Ben. I dropped by really just to pick up a dish that I brought over yesterday.

Ben: Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's probably in the kitchen. I'll get it.

Lisa: No, wait, wait, wait -- I'd like to talk to you for a minute. How is Isaac?

Ben: He says he's okay.

Lisa: Well, I certainly have spent a lot of time working beside this man, and I know when there's a problem.

Ben: Mm-hmm.

Lisa: So is there something going on between him and Bonnie?

Ben: Yeah. Jessica thinks they're fine.

Lisa: Really? Then why does he have this burr in his britches about this Marshall Travers?

Ben: Because Travers is associated with Steinbeck. And if Steinbeck had Isaac's car brake lines cut -- we're lucky that all he did was vent.

Lisa: Oh. Well, he did more than vent. And it certainly wasn't about brake lines or anything like that.

Ben: I know. Seemed more like -- like jealousy, didn't it?

Lisa: Ben, you don't think that Bonnie is foolish enough to get involved with that snake-in-the-grass Marshall Travers, do you?

Margo: It's far too early for April Fool's jokes.

Marshall: Look, the court has an opening. Moving Paul Ryan's trial up makes plenty of sense. Perfect sense. All right? And I will expect your full cooperation, detective.

Margo: All right. And you will receive it.

Marshall: Begrudgingly?

Margo: You'll take what you get.

Marshall: I will.

Margo: Mm-hmm.

Marshall: Look, I'm here to talk to the B&E you've got held up in lockup.

Margo: Here. Here's everything I have on him -- first-time offense, young, probably needed the money for drugs.

Marshall: Thanks. I know my way.

Bonnie: What in the world does he want now?

Margo: Never sneak up on a lady with a new liver.

Bonnie: Sorry, but I heard him ask about Paul.

Margo: Go home, Bonnie.

Bonnie: Margo? And what, let that wacko frame Paul?

Margo: You know what? It is not the wacko that I am worried about. Do you know why Isaac has those bruised ribs? Because that is Steinbeck's way of giving a warning shot. That is Steinbeck telling us to back off.

Bonnie: So what are we supposed to do? Just let Marshall Travers send Paul to jail for a crime he did not commit?

Margo: No. You will let me and the rest of the law enforcement community try and find a way to bring him in.

Bonnie: Do you have any evidence, Margo? I mean, any solid evidence linking James Steinbeck to the Lakeview on the night of the murder? Because I do. I have something James Steinbeck would kill for.

Molly: Mike? Is it just me, or does he seem a little big for his age?

Mike: I guess.

Molly: I mean, 'cause Julia said he was a preemie.

Mike: Maybe he caught up. I don't know. Babies are pretty much the same to me, you know? They eat. They sleep.

Molly: Eat?! Oh, honey! Jack didn't leave any formula or anything. Here. Hold Jackie Jr. for me.

Mike: What? No, no, ah --

Molly: You can do it. Just hold him. Careful.

Mike: Ah -- okay.

Molly: All right. Just -- hold onto him. I'll be right back. I'm gonna find Jack. And I'll be back in a flash.

Mike: Uh -- hey, buddy. Um --

Carly: I am no expert on marriage or the male psyche. But I do know that you married a good man.

Emily: I know. With Hal, I've always felt so safe. You know, so good enough.

Carly: Good enough?

Emily: Yeah. Yeah, that not-quite-good-enough feeling is the one gift an absentee father is great at leaving you. It makes you so sure there must be something wrong with you, you know? Why else would he be checking out? So you grow up thinking, if you could just get everything you want, even if you have to lie and cheat to get it, it's okay, 'cause you win. And if only for a little while, the loneliness will go visit some other poor loser whose father didn't want to fight enough to keep you, either.

Carly: That's pretty deep for this hour. I think I know what you mean. Hal makes it okay that you never really had a father.

Emily: You know what? Hal makes up for me not having a life, for always expecting the worst and getting it. Are you okay?

Carly: Yeah. I'm just a little queasy.

Emily: What's with the saltines?

Carly: They help.

Emily: Yeah, only if you're --

Carly: Want some?

Emily: No. Carly -- are you pregnant?

Carly: No.

Emily: Are you pregnant?

Carly: No.

Emily: You're pregnant?

Carly: I don't know. Maybe. I have a test.

Emily: Well, what are you doing? Go. Go find out for sure, so we can celebrate. Come on. We could use some good news here.

Carly: Well, yeah. That's true. I could certainly use some good news.

Alison: This song's amazing. What's this guy's name again?

Zander: Shannon Lawson.

Alison: And what's your name again?

Zander: Zander.

Alison: Oh, cool name.

Zander: Thanks. Wanna know how I got it? My mother was --

Alison: Just hold that thought, okay? Why are you standing there when you could be dancing?

Aaron: No way, Alison.

Alison: Oh, don't be such a spoilsport.

Aaron: We have to get out of here, get out of this crowd and leave now.

Alison: Don't be such a spoilsport. You'd be in a chain gang right now if it weren't for me.

Aaron: Okay, okay. Just stop making me feel guilty. And don't make a scene.

Alison: I like this tune.

Lucy: You know what? Could you hold this for a second?

Aaron: You've never even heard of Shannon Lawson till today.

Lucy: Sunshine, I think it's my turn.

Alison: No, we were just getting warmed up.

Lucy: You're about as warm as you're gonna get, Alison.

All you have to do is believe

if this is where you wanna be you can dream away with me

Katie cook: Oakdale three? I don't have anything on the bill about them.

Hal: Excuse me, what did you just say?

Katie Cook: And you are?

Hal: Lieutenant Hal Munson, Oakdale, Illinois, P.D. What did you just say about the Oakdale three?

Katie Cook: I don't know. All the kids are buzzing about them. I don't know if they're a new band or what. It's all anybody at Vanderbilt can talk about.

Hal: Yeah.

Alison: Oh, no. Hey, you guys. You guys --

Lucy: Come on, Alison. You had your turn.

Hal: It's over, Aaron. Time to go back and face what you've been running from.

Alison: You're making a terrible mistake.

Hal: You're not exactly off the hook here, Alison. I'd be very careful what I say and do if I were you. All right. Let's try to make this as easy as possible, Aaron.

Gar Delphi brrs! Now!


Hal: Get those kids! Get those kids!

Mike: All right. And then the handsome prince was given a place in the circle of honor. And all the other knights vowed they would meet to race again another day. But the kingdom was full of great drivers -- I mean, knights -- with the shiniest cars and engines roaring loud as thunder. And soon they were ready to do battle again.

Molly: Oh. I didn't know we had any storybooks lying around the house.

Mike: Wheels and Windshields.

Molly: Ah, full of --

[Jackie coughs]

Mike: Hey.

Molly: -- Villains and heroes.

Mike: Yeah. I think Jackie's definitely NASCAR potential, maybe even formula one. Yeah.

[Jackie cries]

Molly: Uh-oh. I think the only formula Jackie really wants right now comes in a bottle. Come here, sweetheart. Come here, sweetheart.

Mike: Bye, buddy.

Mike: You're a natural with him.

Molly: Yeah, well, nothing fills up your arms like a baby. It's been too long, Mike. Way too long.

Marshall: You know, no amount of looking will change the facts of this case.

Jessica: I'm perfectly clear of the facts of this case.

Marshall: Jessica, my hands are tied. If Bonnie's witness had actually identified James --

Jessica: The witness was terrified or bought or both.

Marshall: Well, if he was, I had no knowledge of that.

Jessica: For an intelligent man, you have little knowledge of anything.

Marshall: Look, no matter what we've been through, I still want to be the kind of man you believe in.

Jessica: Marshall, you are so far from that man, it's not even funny.

Margo: Okay. I'm sorry that took so long.

Bonnie: You didn't tell my mom I was here, did you?

Margo: No, I didn't. But, Bonnie, I need you to stay away from this investigation.

Bonnie: You won't say that once you see what's in this bag. Ahem. Two guesses on who this belongs to.

Margo: Where'd you get that?

Bonnie: James tried to burn it. Now, Paul has always said that his father was at the Lakeview on the night of the murder dressed in vampire drag, right? Now, is it or is it not the remains of a vampire cape?

Margo: All right. That -- that may be. But, Bonnie --

Bonnie: Steinbeck tried to burn it, Margo, because he needed to get rid of any evidence that would link him to Brandy's murder.

Margo: Where'd you get this?

Bonnie: Fairwinds. What? What is it? What do you see?

Margo: It's a label from a costume shop. Now, maybe if whoever made the sale can tie this to Steinbeck -- all right, Bonnie, I'll take this from here.

Bonnie: No, no, no. Margo, I cannot let you have this cape.

Margo: What is -- what?

Bonnie: I need it!

Margo: Wait, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Say this again.

Bonnie: This is about my mother and Marshall Travers and the fact that Paul got proof of their affair on videotape.

Margo: What? I don't understand.

Bonnie: I want to take this evidence to Marshall and exchange it for the tape. If I can get the tape, then I can destroy it and save my mom from that dog for good.

Margo: Honey, listen -- I know how much you want to protect your mother. But this is far too risky.

Bonnie: Come on, Margo, think of how much it can get us. Now Marshall Travers is either gonna do one of two things. He will either go get the tape from James, and then we'll know for sure that he's James' pawn. Or he will use this piece of evidence. He will use it to prove that Paul was telling the truth.

Margo: Wait a minute. Now, you want to run a sting on Marshall Travers?

Bonnie: In my opinion, it is the only way to find out what kind of man he really is.

Emily: This baby and -- oh. But it's gonna bring the two of you so close together, you're not even gonna believe how happy you are. And I'm gonna leave right now, because you two need to celebrate. And you need to tell him the good news and --

Carly: Wait! No. I'm not gonna tell Jack about this. Not just yet. And you need to swear to me that you will not breathe a word of it to anybody -- especially not Jack.

Carly: Of course I want to tell Jack. Just not the second that he walks into the house, you know? He just had a newborn baby dropped into his lap. Besides, it's too soon. Where I come from, it's bad luck to talk about being pregnant, for the first couple of months, anyway.

Emily: Not even to the father?

Carly: I'm just getting used to the idea. I need a little time.

[Keys jingling] he's back. Don't say anything.

Jack: Hey, Em.

Emily: Hi, Jack.

Jack: How's my patient?

Carly: Better.

Jack: Really?

Carly: Yeah. So how'd it go?

Jack: Great. It's official. We have full, if temporary, custody of Jack Snyder, Jr.

Carly: What about Julia?

Jack: Well, once she's found and all the outstanding issues are played out in court, then there'll be a new motion for permanent custody.

Carly: Oh, that's great. I'm so happy for you.

Jack: Thank you.

Emily: Congratulations, Jack. You know what? I'm gonna head out of here so you two can talk.

Jack: No. No, don't go anywhere. Don't go anywhere. I wanna plan a party, a christening, you know? This way we can welcome J. J. into the family, you know? He can meet all of our friends. What do you think?

Carly: Yes. I think it's a great idea, Jack.

Jack: Great. Great. Well, we'll take tons of pictures. J. J. with his uncle Holden, with his uncle Hal. Hell, everyone can be his uncle, except for uncle Craig. And you can be his aunt, too.

Emily: Oh, thanks.

Jack: I want him to know he's loved.

Carly: We'll do something real special.

Jack: I know. I know we will. Well, you know, I better go pick him up. You sure you're okay?

Carly: Yeah. Yeah, I'm on the mend.

Jack: You look a little shaky still.

Emily: I'll stay with her.

Jack: Thanks. Any word from Hal?

Emily: Yeah. But I don't want to bore you. You go ahead. I'll fill you in later.

Jack: Great. You know, I shouldn't be long. I love you.

Carly: I love you, too.

Emily: Okay. Let's hear it.

Carly: Hear what?

Emily: I don't run The intruder for nothing. I can sniff a story a mile away. So what's the deal, Carly? Why don't you want Jack to know you're pregnant?

Mike: You really like having him around, don't you? You haven't stopped smiling all morning. Can I ask you something?

Molly: Sure.

Mike: I mean, I don't want to get you down or anything. I just --

Molly: Go ahead. It's all right.

Mike: Did you and Jake -- you know, I mean, besides the twins -- did you guys ever want to have kids of your own?

Molly: We talked about it. We thought we had some time, though, before we had to be serious. I guess the answer is -- I never envisioned our life without more kids in it.

[Jackie fusses]

Mike: I'll get him. Oh. You're not really used to this house yet, are you? Huh? I think he likes the sound of my voice.

Molly: That makes two of us.

Mike: I could get used to this father thing. This is really nice.

Bonnie: I am not gonna let James Steinbeck hurt my mother and Ben. Oh, come on, Margo! You know Travers is dirty. And you want him gone as much as I do.

Margo: Let's say, for argument's sake, that you haven't been here and I never saw this piece of evidence.

Bonnie: And suppose I approach Travers to try and make a deal.

Margo: And let's say that I let you.

Bonnie: Which you would not regret.

Margo: There is one stipulation. I need you to call me immediately when the meeting is set up. And I want 24-hour surveillance around you undercover.

Bonnie: Okay. Okay. I promise, I will check in with you the minute I set things up with Travers.

Margo: I don't like this, Bonnie. But if it works --

Bonnie: Then, hey, we all win. Okay, let's just -- let's just see if he bites, okay? The minute everything is ready and all set up, I will let you know. But be ready, because I want this over with.

Bonnie: Meet me at the Lakeview lounge in ten minutes.

Marshall: Pardon?

Bonnie: You heard me. I'm prepared to offer you a deal. If you're as smart as I think you are, you'll be there.

Craig: Holden! Tell me you've had more luck than I did.

Holden: Nope. Hal is harder to find -- look, it's Aaron.

Craig: Lucy! Lucy!

Holden: Aaron!

Craig: Lucy!

Holden: Aaron, wait! Aaron! That was them. That was definitely them in that beat-up old Volkswagen.

Craig: Well, at least they've got four wheels. Come on, let's go.

Bonnie: Good. Right on time.

Marshall: What do you want, Bonnie?

Bonnie: The real question is, what do I have?

Marshall: I'm not a fan of guessing games.

Bonnie: And I'm not a fan of people who try to destroy my mother.

Marshall: I never meant to hurt Jessica, okay?

Bonnie: Really? Well, you know, I think I finally found a way for you to keep your word for once in your lousy, pathetic life. Go ahead, open it. I think you'll find it very interesting. You know, your boss has an extremely weird taste in evening wear, Marshall. Don't you think? Okay, here's the deal, counselor. I will give you the cape that James Steinbeck wore when he killed Brandy Taylor in exchange for that videotape of you and my mother together.

Marshall: I don't have the tape.

Bonnie: Steinbeck does. Same difference.

Marshall: Hardly.

Bonnie: Look, Marshall, just make it happen. Or the next time you see this rag, it'll be in court.

Marshall: If you know what's good for you, you'll take what's left of that thing and destroy it.

Bonnie: And if you care about my mother at all, you will get your hands on that tape fast. Get --

Marshall: Whatever's between your mother and me is between us. Do you understand? Don't make things worse, Bonnie. Walk away, while you still have a chance.

Molly: You know what? You are not half bad at this baby thing yourself.

Mike: It's just a shame we can't keep unpacking.

Molly: Oh, yeah, shame.

Mike: Come here.

Molly: What?

Mike: I knew I liked that boy for some reason. What's up? Are you all right?

Molly: I'm fine. It's just -- whenever I get around babies, it makes me think of all the time that I missed with Abigail.

Mike: You were pretty much a kid yourself when you had her, right?

Molly: Yeah, but still --

Mike: Maybe you don't have to miss out on anything.

Molly: In case you hadn't noticed, my baby's grown up and gone Hollywood.

Mike: Well, I wasn't really planning on having this conversation, at least not yet, but --

Molly: What?

Mike: I don't know. With Jackie here, it's just --

Molly: Oh, this sounds like it's really serious.

Mike: Oh, no, it's not serious. I mean, it's -- it is, it's serious. It's just --

Molly: What are you saying?

Mike: Well, I was just wondering if, you know -- one day you could see yourself having a baby with me?

Carly: I feel like I'm on "the minnow." Gilligan is at the helm.

Emily: Oh, dear. Okay, you sit down here. Slowly. Want some more saltines? Okay, forget the saltines. Just --

[Emily sighs] where were we?

Carly: We were imagining things, Emily.

Emily: Oh, right, we were imagining things. Okay, so if I'm imagining things, why aren't you chilling the sparkling cider and planning on telling your beautiful husband that you're pregnant?

Carly: We've been married for like 15 minutes. We already have a new baby here. Monte Carlo is barely off the ground. Can you spell stress?

Emily: Stress? This is good stress. This is the kind of stress we love to have in our lives. And you -- you invented stress, Carly. Come on, you didn't crack at the spa. You didn't crack on the stand. You can do this.

Carly: Then you see that I'm long overdue, then -- to crack. Do you have any idea what it's like to have a child in your life whose mother hates your guts?

Emily: Vaguely.

Carly: Right. Okay, so you do know. And if Jackie, Jr. is anything like his mother, I will be locking up the steak knives until he goes off to reform school.

Emily: This has nothing to do with Jackie, Jr.

Carly: And how do you know that?! How do you know anything?! And how dare you march into my home and tell me how to run my life, tell me what I should feel?!

Emily: I dare because I'm your friend. So you can drop the excuses and all the lame reasons why Jack couldn't possibly be thrilled about having a child with you. You're lying to me, and you're lying to yourself, Carly. Something's tearing you up inside. And you better spill it right now, 'cause I'm not budging until you do. Oh, honey -- honey, come on. It can't be that bad.

Carly: It's worse. And I know from worse. Oh, Emily, I have really made a mess of everything this time. See, I'm not afraid to tell Jack about this baby. I'm afraid to tell him it might not be his.
