Jessica: All right. The D.A. is gonna press certain points. The fact that you were carrying a gun. The fact that you had drugs in your system.

Paul: The absurdity of my case?

Jessica: Paul, don't do that to yourself.

Paul: Jessica, how can I not? I'm about to go into a court of law and claim that I was drugged in a public bar, that I staggered up to a hotel room and shot a man wearing a Dracula costume. Only the man disappears and is replaced by a dead woman, also -- also wearing a Dracula costume. Now, if I were on the jury, I wouldn't believe me either.

Jessica: Well, you don't have to worry about that, because I don't intend to put you on the stand.

Paul: What if it becomes necessary?

Jessica: It won't.

Paul: Well, I wish I could share your confidence. But all I can think about is the jury listening to the case against me. And, to them, it's gonna sound very strong.

Margo: Well, not as strong as it used to be. I just got some news that could make all the difference.

Bonnie: Get your hands off of me now or I will --

Marshall: What? Embarrass your mother further? What, weaken her case against Paul Ryan? I don't think you will.

Bonnie: You make me sick, you know that?

Marshall: Yeah, well, a few months ago, you were dying to kiss me, told me I turned you on.

Bonnie: Yeah, well, I guess the appeal didn't last long, now did it?

Marshall: You were conning me then and you're trying to con me now. I'm not gonna tolerate that, Bonnie. I'm telling you, back off.

Bonnie: You think you can control me, Marshall? I've got news for you -- there's not a chance in the world.

Marshall: I'm not trying to control you. I don't want to have anything to do with you. Look, this game between us is over, little girl. You are way out of your league.

Emma: So, then we've got them in the oven. And we just wait for them. We just put them in. And it takes about eight or ten minutes.

[Knocking at door] who is it?

Rosanna: Hello. It's Rosanna Cabot.

Emma: How about that? We have company. Well, hello. It's so good to see you. Come on in.

Rosanna: Hi. So lovely to see you. These are for you.

Emma: Oh, goodness, they're beautiful. Look what I have. Aren't they beautiful? They're not as beautiful as you. And, Faith, this is my very dear friend, Rosanna. She's been in Oakdale for quite a few months, and she hasn't been by to see me all that much.

Rosanna: I'm sorry. Please, I feel guilty enough. Hello, Faith. Hi. It's very nice to meet you.

Faith: Hi.

Emma: We missed you on Thanksgiving. It would've been a nice time to get together.

Rosanna: Yes, it would have. But I'm not sure all of your guests would have welcomed my attendance.

Emma: You know something about making cookies? Your hands get all messy. So why don't you go wash your hands and then color until the cookies are ready, okay? All right. Run along. Well, now, I take it you were referring to Carly just then.

Rosanna: Oh, yes. Well, suffice it to say, we're not on the best of terms.

Emma: Now, I know you didn't come out here for this. But I am going to bombard you with a lot of good advice.

Rosanna: Okay.

Emma: You know, sweetheart, you don't have much family. And Carly's your only sister. I really think it would be wonderful -- wonderful for both of you if the two of you could settle your differences?

Molly: You know what I like about you? Among other things?

Mike: I make a mean Spanish omelet?

Molly: You're direct. When you have question, you ask it. You know, you gather information. You --

Mike: Are you gonna answer my question? If not, I understand. It's just --

Molly: Let me see. You asked me a question -- would I want to have children with you? You know that we can rephrase that question, it could be the same thing, but turn -- you know, would you want to have children with me, Mike? Because when we first brought up living together, you didn't exactly jump at the idea. So I'm just curious how we got on the topic of children so fast.

Mike: I'm not talking about today or this week or even this decade. I'm just saying, sometime in the future, can you see us as parents?

Molly: I know that you are asking that question from your heart. So I'm gonna answer you from mine. Honestly, Mike -- I'm not sure.

Emily: If you're trying to shock me, you did.

Carly: I wish I could tell you I'm just kidding, but I can't. This baby I'm carrying might not be Jack's.

Emily: But -- you've only been married a couple of weeks. How could you be pregnant by somebody else?

Carly: I didn't say it was pretty.

Emily: Do you realize how much your husband loves you? I mean, do you remember that he almost died getting you out of that spa, Carly?

Carly: Yes, I know that, Emily! That's what makes this such living hell!

Emily: -- What you were like when you came back? You were old, Carly, and miserable. And never -- not for a moment -- did Jack do anything but support you.

Carly: Yes, I know. I got it, all right? Jack is a prince, and I'm the same slut I have always been!

Emily: -- Don't you put words in my mouth. That's not what I was thinking.

Carly: You know something? Being married to a policeman doesn't necessarily make you a saint. And if you don't believe me, why don't you go and ask Tom Hughes?

Emily: What does my life have to do with any of this?

Carly: Nothing. This is my problem. And I'm the one who has to deal with it. So unless you have some magic fairy dust you can scatter to make it go away, why don't you back off and get the hell out of here!?

Emily: Carly, I realize that this is a difficult time for you. But I want you to know that I'm here as your friend. I'm --

Carly: I'm sorry. I shouldn't be taking this out on you.

Emily: No, no, it's okay. I'm sorry. I should've been more sensitive and -- can I get you anything? You look a little flushed.

Carly: I'm fine. Well -- that's a slight exaggeration.

Emily: Oh, sweetie -- okay, I'm not -- I'm not gonna pry. But I think that sometimes it helps, you know, to talk about these things.

Carly: Oh, I really don't want to.

Emily: Okay. Fine. Then I'll have to pry, okay? You need to tell me everything, from beginning to end.

Carly: It was one night. The night before my wedding.

Emily: You slept with someone the night before your wedding? How does that happen?

Carly: Well, I thought it was over with Jack. He'd called off the wedding. The next morning he had a change of heart, and he came to me and apologized, and the wedding was back on. But between the breakup and the reconciliation -- I found a friendly ear. We got drunk. One thing led to another.

Emily: Oh, my God, that's awful. No, I don't mean -- I don't mean what you did. I mean, that I understand. I'm not necessarily proud that I can relate, but I can relate. What I mean -- what's awful is that you can't just forget about it and move on.

Carly: Yes. Tell me about it.

Emily: But you know what? I mean, you only slept with this guy once. So isn't it possible that this baby's really Jack's?

Carly: Jack and I have been using birth control. We've been really careful, just waiting for the right time to start a family together. But this other person and I -- we threw caution to the wind.

Emily: Okay, so when you say this other person, does that mean you're not gonna tell me who it is?

Carly: Yeah. That's exactly what it means.

Emily: Okay. I mean, I don't blame you for being discreet. Carly and I know exactly who it is.

Molly: Do you know that I had Abigail when I was a teenager? And when they took her away from me, I cried for weeks. And then I planned on having children with Jake. And then he was killed. And more tears. And those twins -- they were as close to me as my own children. Do you see where I'm going with this, Mike? I lost the twins, too. So I'm thinking that maybe, you know, me and kids just aren't meant to be.

Mike: But that's past history. It doesn't have anything to do with us.

Molly: I know. But I can't help but feel cautious.

Mike: All right. It makes sense.

Molly: It does?

Mike: Yeah, you got knocked around pretty good. It's only natural you'd want to protect yourself. But I do have one more question for you.

Molly: Anything.

Mike: I need to know, is this about having kids or having kids with me?

Molly: If I had a kid with your smile and those eyes and that beautiful heart, that would be the best thing that could ever happen to me.

Mike: Thank you. I just had to be sure.

Molly: Do you mind if I let you in on a little secret?

Mike: Go ahead.

Molly: I've actually imagined what our child would look like.

Mike: Really?

Molly: Yes.

Mike: I love that you thought about having a child with me.

Molly: I mean, I imagined it. I fantasized about it. I think there's a difference.

Mike: So you don't think it could ever really happen?

Molly: No, I'm not saying never happen. You know, I'm just saying -- not any time soon, you know? Because, though I love spending time with you and I am so grateful that you are in my life, I -- you know, I've lost a lot of things this year. And so I'm still a little off balance sometimes. I mean, sometimes I know what I want and sometimes I don't know what I want or where I'm going. And this isn't what you wanted to hear.

Mike: It's all right. I won't mention it again.

Molly: No, you're angry, aren't you?

Mike: No.

Molly: You're turned off?

Mike: No. I trust you. I don't want you to feel like you're ever being pressured into anything. It's just -- I'm not gonna drop this. I mean, someday we'll have this conversation again when you feel the time is right, okay?

Molly: Do you know how truly unbelievable you are?

Margo: Imagine my surprise to hear that Bonnie found the charred remains of a Halloween costume in the fireplace at Fairwinds.

Jessica: Bonnie? I told her to stay out of this.

Margo: We all told her to stay out of it. But, nonetheless, James' Dracula cape was rented from a costume shop in Milltown.

Paul: What does that prove? That doesn't prove anything.

Margo: Well, wait. Wait. It was rented the day before Halloween, along with a smaller version of the same costume. And one guess as to whose credit card it was put on.

Jessica: Brandy Taylor? Or would that be wishful thinking?

Margo: That's the one. So, there you are. There's your connection between her and James.

Paul: Well, that's not exactly an eyewitness testimony, is it?

Margo: No. We're working on that. Paul, I'm doing everything I can to shore up your case.

Paul: Thank you. She's a good woman.

Jessica: And a good cop. You should take heart from what she says. If there's evidence out there to support you, Margo will find it.

Paul: And if there's not?

Jessica: We can still win. I know how to get to Marshall Travers.

Paul: No offense, but he almost wiped the floor with you at my bail hearing.

Jessica: Well, that was the first round. The next one's mine.

Paul: What makes you so sure?

Jessica: Because I believe that, somewhere in Marshall's heart, he's tired of being Steinbeck's whipping boy. Now, I plan to help him to find that place and then to do what his conscience tells him to do.

Paul: I have two problems with that. It assumes Travers has a heart and a conscience.

Bonnie: Believe me, Marshall, being in your league is the last place I want to be considering I find you immoral, indecent, a bully, cruel.

Marshall: I am not gonna stand here and trade insults with you. I told you, stay away from me. You'd be wise to comply.

Bonnie: Wait. Wait. Wait a minute. Okay, you were right. My throwing myself at you in your hotel room was a con. I wanted to distract you. I did a very good job at it, and it seemed like a good idea at the time. But today is different. Today I have a real offer. And I think it would be in your best interest to at least hear what it is.

Marshall: Make it quick.

Bonnie: I showed you that piece of burned Dracula cape as evidence that could possibly free Paul Ryan and cast suspicion on James Steinbeck. Now, I'm willing to give it to you, no questions asked, in exchange for that videotape of you and my mother.

Marshall: I thought you and Paul Ryan were friends.

Bonnie: We were. We are. But, Marshall, you should know, I am willing to do anything, risk anything to protect my mother. If Paul gets hurt, I would hate that. But that might just have to be.

Marshall: Well, we obviously have different definitions of friendship.

Bonnie: And probably a lot of other things, too. But, nevertheless, are you interested or not?

Marshall: No.

Bonnie: Why not?

Marshall: Because you're lying. You're trying to run a sting on me, Bonnie. But it's not gonna work.

Bonnie: A sting? How do you figure that?

Marshall: You give me this so-called "evidence." I hand over the tape. Then you call in the Police. I get arrested and lose my job. Don't even pretend to be insulted. That act is wearing very thin.

Bonnie: Does it ever occur to you, Marshall, that you could be possibly be wrong?

Marshall: Yes, it does. But I fight it.

Ben: Hey, Bonnie.

Bonnie: Oh, Ben, hi.

Ben: Hey. Where are you heading?

Bonnie: Work. Work. And, actually, I'm a little late. So if you could excuse me.

Ben: Really? I could have sworn you were about to chase after Marshall Travers.

Bonnie: What? Marshall -- what ever gave you that idea?

Ben: Well, I saw the two of you together. So let's not play games, okay?

Bonnie: Okay. I was talking to Marshall Travers. And it was unpleasant, as usual. And I really don't want to discuss it with you.

Ben: I already know it wasn't about the weather. You could see that from across the room.

Bonnie: You were spying on us? Well, that is so un-Dr. Ben-like.

Ben: Oh, come on, don't even try to turn this around on me. I used to think we were on the same team.

Bonnie: We are, Ben. I was just -- I was confronting Marshall Travers about that Events Manager at the Lakeview. I just wanted to know why the guy backed out on identifying James Steinbeck. That's all.

Ben: You know how your mother feels about lying?

Bonnie: Yes, I do. She always thinks it's worse for the person who does it.

Ben: Yeah, well, there's something going on here between Marshall Travers and somebody that I care about very much. Now, I think it's time that you start telling me the truth so that we can fix this situation.

Rosanna: Emma, I know you mean well. But the gap between me and Carly is so wide, I don't see us crossing it in this lifetime.

Emma: But I think, if you just --

Rosanna: Emma, please -- please. Why don't you tell me about Thanksgiving.

Emma: Well, it was a lovely day. You missed a lovely one. There weren't many people though. And Holden was out on the road looking for Aaron. And Abigail's moved to L.A., you know? And Lily has to stay in bed until the baby comes. So she and the children spent Thanksgiving with Lucinda. But I did have an unexpected guest -- a very handsome young man -- my new little nephew, Mr. Jack Snyder, Jr.

Rosanna: Oh, yes. I heard about him. What's he like?

Emma: Oh, he is the sweetest little baby I've ever seen. Carly was a little bit overwhelmed. But I think she'll get over it. Judging from Parker, I think she's probably a very good mother.

Rosanna: Well, she was the most irresponsible and wild girl I'd ever met. How interesting now, she's the saint of Oakdale.

Emma: Isn't it possible, Rosanna, that she could change?

Rosanna: No, it's not, actually. It's not. And I'm not just saying that. I have inside information on her latest indiscretion, Emma. And now here she is on Thanksgiving surrounded by friends and family.

Emma: You know you could've come. It was your choice not to.

Rosanna: I'm not jealous. I'm not jealous. I wouldn't want the life that she has. I have a career. I have money. I have the kind of life that people would want. I have a career of my own. My peers look up to me. I have respect. It's great. It's great, Emma. Nobody tells me what to do. My life is completely my own. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Emma: So, tell me -- what's missing from all of that?

Carly: You know, if it's all the same to you, Emily, I'd rather not play guessing games about who the father of my child might be.

Emily: I know it's Craig. Who else would it be?

Carly: You know, that's very funny. But in order to get pregnant by Craig, I'd have to touch him. And that would make me so nauseous, I wouldn't be able to have sex with him. What?

Emily: You're telling me the truth?

Carly: Get a bible, I'll swear on it.

Emily: No, no, it's okay. I believe you. Frankly, I find the whole thing very new millennium, you know? You and Jack have a child he fathered with Julia. And then, of course, there's Parker, whose parents are you and Hal. And now, you've got this one coming who you fathered with the mystery man. No set of parents alike. Three for three.

Carly: Well, you're assuming that I'm actually going to have this baby.

Emily: No, sweetie, I know better than to assume anything like that. Have you made any decisions along those lines?

Carly: I have to go to a doctor first, right, and find out if I'm really pregnant. But I can't go to my own O.B. Jack could find out.

Emily: You can go to my doctor. She's terrific. Dr. Schiller.

Carly: Yeah?

Emily: Yeah. I'll call her right now.

Carly: Will you?

Emily: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Carly: You know her number by heart?

Emily: Home, my office, this and the little Chinese takeout joint around the corner. Hi. Yeah, it's Emily Stewart. I'm a patient of Dr. Schiller's. And -- yeah, hi. I would like to make an appointment for a friend of mine, Carly Tenney. Well, actually, she'd like to come in as soon as possible. Great. Her number's 555-0426. Thank you so much. They're gonna call you as soon as they know.

Carly: Thank you. That's one less thing to worry about, right? Should we make some tea?

Emily: Oh, I would love some. But only if it's herbal, okay? Something to settle both of our stomachs.

Carly: Well, I have a whole drawer full. Let's check it out.

Jack: Honey, I'm home. I brought visitors.

[Phone rings] yeah, hello? I have no idea what you're talking about. Hold on. Do you know a Dr. Schiller? Her office is on the phone.

Carly: I'll explain when I get off.

Jack: All right.

Emily: I just put Carly in touch with the doctor. You know, that stomach thing. Fix her up right up.

Molly: Great.

Carly: Yes, thank you.

Emily: I told Jack that I'd just put you in touch with my doctor. Dr. Schiller, to take care of that stomach thing.

Oh, good, thanks. You know, they -- they missed an opening when you talked to them. I can go in tomorrow.

Emily: Oh, great.

Jack: I had no idea it was this serious.

Carly: Oh, it isn't, Jack. I'm fine. Do we really need to discuss my digestive problems?


Carly: Hi. Hello.

Molly: We really wanted to come by and see, but we can't stay long.

Jack: Yeah, I wanted Mike to help me with that swing for Jackie. Not that I needed it, but I thought it'd be cool just to get together, you know?

Mike: Yeah, you ready for that construction lesson?

Jack: Sure, let's do it. Here, do you mind?

Molly: Oh, not at all. Come here, baby.

Mike: You got some tools?

Jack: I do. Only the best.

Carly: Ah! So how's looking after Jackie?

Molly: Oh, so easy! He slept almost the entire time.

Carly: He did -- what? You can sleep over there? Why can't you sleep here?

Emily: You are so cute. Hello, there. Oh, gosh. All right, I gotta head home in case Hal calls, so -- I'll see you guys.

Molly: Wow, is he still chasing after Aaron?

Emily: He's like Captain Ahab and the great white whale. Hopefully, this will have a happier ending. Don't worry, okay? Try not to.

Molly: So, are you okay? 'Cause it seems like something really serious is wrong.

Carly: No. I'll go to this doctor and I'm sure it's just some kind of flu and everything will be all right.

Molly: All right. And you're gonna call me right after the appointment with the doctor, right?

Carly: I'll try.

Molly: So, uh, do you know what Mike and I were discussing today?

Carly: Oh, um -- who gets to hold the remote?

Molly: Mm, let me give you a hint.

Rock-a-bye baby in the tree top

Carly: You are not.

Molly: Mm-hmm. Well, the subject came up and we just went with it.

Carly: You can't do that, Molly. Having a baby with Mike would be a terrible mistake.

Emma: You know, I know why you came back to Oakdale. Carly was gone and you were concerned about Parker. But I don't quite understand why you stayed.

Rosanna: Well, it was familiar. And I needed a change, and I met an interesting man.

Emma: Oh, yes. That's right -- Craig Montgomery.

Rosanna: Yes. You've been keeping tabs on me.

Emma: Well, I gotta watch out for my girl.

Rosanna: Well, yes, actually, that was it. So, um, I can do most of my business by phone and fax. The transition was fairly painless.

Emma: You know, I remember when you were such a hopeful, positive young girl sharing that house with Mike Kasnoff. All you wanted was a simple life and to be away from your father and all his millions of dollars. But that was a long time ago. Yes, it was. I know you were very hurt when you lost Mike. But I think that something else has happened as well.

Rosanna: That's quite an assumption.

Emma: I suppose it is. But I miss that hopeful, positive young girl, and I can't help wondering what's happened to her.

Jessica: This one's good. It's very upbeat. It tells the jury that you're not apologizing for anything.

Marshall: Listen to your lawyer, Mr. Ryan. She's a master manipulator. Although you probably won't be needing these, it should be a short trial.

Paul: Do you like putting innocent people behind bars, Travers? Is that what you like to do? Is that what you think a District Attorney's job is, huh?

Margo: Officer, you can take Mr. Ryan back to his cell, please.

Cop: Right away, detective.

Jessica: Come on, Paul. Show him you're the bigger man.

Margo: So, you're here on official business?

Marshall: I need to speak to both of you, immediately. Bonnie McKechnie tried to tamper with the Brandy Taylor case. She offered me a piece of evidence that suggested that James Steinbeck was at the Lakeview the night of the murder. In return, she wanted me to give her a certain videotape.

Margo: That evidence was disclosed to your office, as well as Ms. Griffin's --

Marshall: No, no, no -- before you continue, let me be clear on one thing. Are you trying to tell me that neither one of you had any knowledge of the defense council's daughter making that offer?

Ben: A man deserves to know if his woman is creeping out on him. Especially with a snake like Marshall Travers.

Bonnie: Okay, Ben, this is very difficult for me.

Ben: Are you denying that you're having an affair with Travers?

Bonnie: What?!

Ben: Oh, I know, it's not the polite question to ask, but my manners are starting to wear thin about now.

Bonnie: Ben, I would not cheat on Isaac!

Ben: Look, you obviously aren't a happy couple. You couldn't even be nice to each other on Thanksgiving. You were at each other the whole time.

Bonnie: So does that mean I'm just supposed to go sleep with another man?

Ben: Look, I just heard you -- I heard Travers say that you told him that he turns you on.

Bonnie: So you also heard him say it was a con.

Ben: Yeah, somebody's getting conned here. And I don't want it to be Isaac.

Bonnie: Okay, okay, Ben, I understand you're concerned for your brother. I do. And I can also appreciate how you somehow misconstrued what you overheard, but I have told you the truth, Ben. And you are still coming at me like I am some cheap number that needs to be put in her place. Well, I am not gonna tolerate that. No man, nobody, is gonna disrespect me that way.

Jessica: Your accusation is unfounded and insulting. I knew nothing about Bonnie's scheme.

Marshall: If there have been any improprieties, I'll find them. I'd like a moment with Jessica.

Margo: Are you all right with that, Jess?

Jessica: Uh, sure. He's the D.A., right?

Marshall: I'd like you to deliver this message to Bonnie. If she ever tries anything that stupid again, I'll have her arrested and charged with bribery, obstruction of justice and entrapment.

Jessica: Tell her yourself.

Marshall: That won't be worst of it. There's already been one dead girl. Let's not make it two.

Ben: I'd really like to know what's going on here.

Bonnie: Isaac and I are just still adjusting. We're adjusting to being partners, both in business and other areas as well. But that is all that's going on.

Ben: Fine.

Bonnie: Okay. I mean, I have my faults, but I at least know how to be faithful to my man.

Ben: Okay. I got it. I don't know, it's just -- it's a difficult time.

Bonnie: Are things okay between you and my mom?

Ben: Depends on what time it is. One minute, we're closer than we've ever been. And the next, she's like a complete stranger. She can't explain it. I don't know what to do.

Bonnie: My mother loves you. Don't ever forget that.

Ben: Yeah, I know. But I also know that love and loyalty are not the same thing.

Bonnie: I wish I had all the answers for you. I do, but I'm still trying to figure it all out myself. All I can tell you is, don't give up, Ben 'cause that would be a horrible, horrible mistake.

Molly: Mike and I have finally reached the point where we can discuss things like this, and you act like we're jumping off a cliff.

Carly: Um, it was a gut reaction. You and Mike haven't known each other very long.

Molly: No, but you've known him for a really long time and you think he's a great guy. I thought you approved of it.

Carly: Yeah, I do. And he is -- he's great. It's just -- God, why does everything have to be so complicated?

Molly: Carly, what? What is going on? Tell me.

Carly: Nothing.

Molly: "Nothing"? No, no, it can't be nothing, because you act like you're in pain.

Carly: It's just everything's happened so fast. I got married and then Julia showed up with Jackie and -- and when I least expected it I found out --

Molly: What? Found out what?

Carly: Molly, I want you to know something, okay? No matter what, no matter what happens, you will always be one of the people in this world that I love the most.

Molly: Same here, honey. Why are you bringing this up now?

Carly: Because -- I'm worried about you. You know, once you have children, you know, you can't ever go back again.

Molly: Don't you think I know that?

Carly: Yes. Yes, of course you do. It's just sometimes when things get going, people can forget what they know. I just want to see you get your life really established, you know, before you make that kind of commitment.

Molly: And that is exactly what I told Mike and he understood. So you can stop being worried and go back to being happy for me.

Carly: I'm sorry. I guess I'm a little sensitive on the subject of children these days.

Molly: Yeah, I guess so. You know, I am really happy that you're going to the doctor because you haven't had a lot of rest lately, have you?

Carly: No, I think Jackie's sleeping habits are a bit like a nighttime disk jockey.

Molly: Yeah, I know the feeling. But this is more than that. It's deeper.

Carly: No. It's nothing serious. It's stress, I'm sure. And it will go away.

Molly: Carly, I want to go to this doctor's appointment with you.

Carly: What? Tomorrow?

Molly: That's right. And I'm not gonna take no for an answer.

Rosanna: Well, that little girl grew up. She's a lot more confident. She wears a little more makeup.

Emma: Confidence is good. That's not what I'm talking about. It's something else. And it troubles me.

Rosanna: What is it?

Emma: It's a bit of bitterness. And kind of hopelessness. The sense that life is never gonna give you what you really want.

Rosanna: Well, losing Mike because of Carly certainly didn't make me bitter. I mean, it left a scar, but I'm stronger, really. I know how to get what I want. I don't let people push me around.

Emma: Are you happy with Craig?

Rosanna: I know he's not the most popular man in town, but he's good for me. He cares about me. We have fun. In fact, I think it might be the best relationship I've ever had.

Emma: Well, then I'm really glad for both of you. But I think he got the better deal. Hey!

Faith: Can you put this in my hair?

Emma: Okay!

[Timer dings] ooh, ooh -- I smell those cookies burning. I better get them out of the oven. Rosanna, would you do that?

Rosanna: Oh, um, I'm not

Emma: Oh, it's very simple. Put it in. Just put it in.

Rosanna: Okay, I'm gonna come down on your level here. Do you want me to just put it back in a ponytail for you? You know? Okay, you know, I'm just gonna put the ribbon up here in the top. I think that will look very pretty. All right? You have such nice hair.

Faith: Thank you.

Rosanna: There you go. Turn around. Let's see. Oh, lovely. You're such a beautiful little girl. Your momma must be very proud of you. Okay. Okay, go play.

Emma: Are you all right?

Rosanna: I'm fine. I'm fine. I just -- I'm late. I'm so late for an appointment. I have to go. But let's meet up in town for lunch some time very soon, okay?

Emma: I'd like that.

Rosanna: Lovely, lovely to see you --

Emma: Rosanna? I know something's troubling you, sweetheart. If you ever want to talk about it, you just call me, anytime.

Rosanna: Thank you, Emma. I'm perfectly fine. I don't want you worrying about me, okay?

Ben: Hey, man, I was wondering if you could give me some information.

Bartender: I'll do my best.

Ben: I need Marshall Travers' room number.

Bartender: I'm sorry, sir, but I can't --

Ben: I'm Dr. Harris. I'm the Chief in Neurology at Oakdale Memorial. And I'm supposed to have an appointment with Mr. Travers, and I seem to have forgotten my appointment book, and I can't remember the room that we're supposed to be in. I kind of went blank, you know? Has that ever happened to you?

Bartender: Um, he's in 742, but I saw him leave the building a while ago.

Ben: Hey, no problem. I'll just sit down and wait for him to come back.

Marshall: You're gonna look for her one day and she will not be there.

Jessica: I never knew you at all, did I?

Marshall: What does that mean?

Jessica: That you could say such a horrendous thing to me, without the slightest bit of compassion --

Marshall: Look, um, I'm sorry if my -- if my style is too direct. But if I didn't care about you and your daughter, I wouldn't say a word.

Jessica: What should I do?

Marshall: Keep Bonnie away from anything that has to do with Steinbeck. All right, that means the tape, the trial, me, all of it.

Jessica: You're right, you're right. I'll -- I'll talk to her. Thank you.

Marshall: Look, I know what she means to you. I couldn't bear it if you were hurt in that way.

Jessica: Hi, it's mom. I'm at the Police station. I need you to get over here right now. This is serious, Bonnie. Get your butt over here now!

Carly: Hey. So, do we have a swing?

Jack: Yes. Mike was amazing. It's like he willed that thing together.

Mike: Don't let Jackie put on too much weight and we'll be all right.


Molly: Are you ready to go? Because I have to be early at work today.

Jack: Yeah, can you hang on for just one more minute? There's something really important I want to do. Honey, can you get those wine glasses? You know, I bought this the other day. And I wanted it for something special -- actually, I wanted to welcome Jackie into his new home.

Molly: That is a really nice thought, Jack.

Jack: Well, thank you. His official welcoming will happen when he gets christened, which is why I want to ask you both something. You know, I was thinking today how important it is for kids to have people around them that care about them, love them and remember their birthday, and all that kind of stuff. And Jackie, he's got -- he's got Carly and I, but I was thinking maybe he could use a little backup. So, if you'll agree, I was wondering if you two would like to be his godparents.

Mike: I'd be honored, Jack.

Molly: Me, too.

Jack: Are you okay with this?

Carly: Oh, Jack, I don't think you'll find anybody better.

Jack: Okay, all right. Then it's all set. To my son, to his godparents, to his parents.

Molly: And to friendship forever.
