Lucy: I missed you.

Aaron: Oh, you were only gone for three minutes.

Lucy: I know. It was just -- after last night, I don't want to be away from you for a second.

Aaron: I know. Me, too.

Lucy: You know, the whole world looks different to me today.

Aaron: We really belong to each other now, Lucy.

Aaron: Yeah, I really wish we didn't have to stand out here in the rain, scrounging for change. You know, I can think of a lot of better things we could be doing.

Lucy: Yeah, me, too. All right. How much do we have? Five nickels and a soda bottle cap. Well, maybe I can scratch off the inside, see if we won anything.

Aaron: I hate this, Lucy. I mean, you're at a great school, like Rhodes College, and it should be because you're here for an interview. But thanks to me, we're standing out here, begging people for change in a paper --

Lucy: Oh, Aaron, stop. Stop. It's just slow going right now. But we can't give up. Maybe Alison's having more luck.

Aaron: Yeah, wherever she is.

Ruthie: "Will work for food," huh? You guys know anything about cars?

Aaron: Yeah. Matter of fact, I do.

Lucy: Aaron knows just about everything about cars.

Aaron: Is there something -- you guys having car problems or something?

Ruthie: Yeah, it stalled on the other side of Phillips Lane. It's smoking and hissing and lurching.

Danny: Sounds like it's gonna blow up, man.

Ruthie: Yeah, maybe if you could do anything besides say, "whoa, dude! That sucks," every time you look under the hood.

Danny: I told you when we got together for the first time -- I'm an artist, not a mechanic. You're on your own.

Aaron: No, you're not. I might be able to do something.

Ruthie: Oh, really? That'd be great. And I've got money. I can pay you.

Danny: You been holding out on me, Ruthie?

Ruthie: Get real, Danny. Let's go. My car's over there.

Aaron: You coming, Luce?

Lucy: Oh, I told Alison this is where we'd be. I should probably stay here in case she comes looking for us.

Aaron: Okay.

Danny: Ruthie, you need me?

Ruthie: Are you kidding? Come on. Let's go. I wanna get it moving before the campus cops tow it.

Lucy: It's okay. Go, Aaron. I'll just try to find Alison and meet you back here.

Danny: Looks like you're stuck with me, pretty lady.

Rosanna: I guess I was hoping --

Dr. Schiller: I was, too. But the results are clear, and we shouldn't wait any longer.

Rosanna: Well, thank you for giving me so much of your time.

Dr. Schiller: Just fill out those forms and leave them with the nurse. And try not to worry, okay?

Rosanna: Oh, no, I'll be fine.

[In trembling voice]

Rosanna: Hi, it's Rosanna. Can I -- can we -- can I talk to you? Yes, yes, you could say that something is wrong. Lovely. Al's diner. I will meet you there. Thank you.

Carly: Well -- home pregnancy tests aren't always right. Right?

Emily: But Dr. Schiller is. So if she says you're pregnant, you're pregnant.

Carly: Let's just hope she doesn't.

Emily: Okay. I'll wait out here. You gonna be okay?

Carly: Just peachy.

Rosanna: Carly! Here to depress the sick or to get a little from your favorite foreman?

Waitress: Hey!

Mike: Hey.

Waitress: How's the Burn unit coming along?

Mike: It's going good. But if I don't get an extra-large coffee and an egg sandwich, I'm seriously not gonna have the strength to finish it. All right?

Waitress: Well, I don't want to stand in the way of progress. Your order will be ready in a few minutes.

Mike: Thank you. Ben?

Ben: Hey. Fast Mike.

Mike: How you feeling, man?

Ben: Remember -- I used to always tell you to slow down? Be just like me?

Mike: Yeah. You always said doctors knew everything.

Ben: I was wrong. You don't wanna be like me.

Mike: You mind if I sit down? What's going -- what's going on?

Ben: Lies, man! Lies are going on. Lies all around me.

Mike: Who lied to you?

Ben: The good and beautiful Ms. Griffin.

Mike: Even the good and beautiful make mistakes, man.

Ben: No, it was not a mistake! She betrayed me! And I'm gonna get the man that made her do it.

Bonnie: Neia Bellaguese is the woman in Travers' yearbook?!

Isaac: Give the lady a cigar. She was Travers' main squeeze almost all the way through college.

Bonnie: Almost?

Isaac: Yeah, she dropped out shortly before graduation.

Bonnie: Okay, that's weird. What happened?

Isaac: Well, nobody exactly knows. But they know that she burnt out of Beantown and headed back home -- to Rio.

Bonnie: Rio?

Isaac: Mm-hmm.

Bonnie: Isaac, she could've been there six months ago.

Isaac: When Travers met Steinbeck. Exactly what I was thinking.

Bonnie: Oh, baby, you are on to something good!

Isaac: Yes, we are. But unless we find this woman before Paul's trial starts, we got nothing.

[Cell phone rings]

Bonnie: Oh. Hello?

Jessica: Hi, honey. Ben wouldn't happen to be there, would he?

Bonnie: No. It's just me and Isaac.

Jessica: Good. I mean -- thanks. He's probably in surgery. I'll call the hospital.

Bonnie: Mom? You sound kind of funny. Are you okay?

Jessica: Ben knows, Bonnie. He knows that I slept with Marshall.

Ben: I've rushed it with other women. But not with Jessica, man. Everything just -- it unfolded, like it was supposed to.

Mike: Sounds like there's something worth saving there, man.

Ben: No way. I'm thinking of marrying this woman, and she's creeping out with another man.

Mike: Sometimes, even when you love someone, you still slip up.

Ben: Slip up?! You know, you don't cheat on somebody that you love. I love her, man. I love the way she looked at me. Her voice, the way she would laugh. You know what I loved more than anything? She was honest.

Mike: You trusted her. There's nothing wrong with that.

Ben: No, I should have trusted my gut. I had this feeling that she was seeing another man. And I went to her, and I asked her. And she looked at me with tears in her eyes. She told me I was wrong. And like some fool, I believed her!

Mike: Give it some time. Maybe you'll start to see things differently.

Ben: No, no. She made her choice. She chose T. Marshall Travers.

Mike: It's not always like that. Now, listen -- sometimes people make mistakes. They do stupid things.

Ben: How would you know?

Mike: I've been there, man. All right? It's that place where you're not thinking clearly. You know? It's like -- it's like a train wreck. Everything just smashes together at one time. You know, you got bad luck, hurt feelings, a bottle of booze. Afterwards, you can't even pinpoint where that train went off track.

Ben: Yeah. That's -- this is what I've been trying to do all night. Pinpoint when me and Jessica got off track. When she stopped being honest. You wanna hear something funny? Last few weeks, I've been worried about Isaac. I've been thinking that his girlfriend was out cheating on him. Let me tell you, man, with Jessica, normal is good.



Isaac: About Jessica --

Ben: Mm-hmm.

Isaac: She didn't tell you what happened, did she?

Ben: What happened?

Isaac: I accused her of cheating on you.

Ben: Isaac knew. My brother! He knew.

Mike: Whoa, whoa, man. Where you going?

Ben: I'm gonna go see Isaac.

Mike: Man, you can't drive anywhere.

Ben: I'll take a cab.

Mike: All right, listen. Whoa, whoa. You let me drive you, all right?

Ben: You just -- you stay out of my way when we get there.

Mike: All right. You got it.

Bonnie: Mom -- oh, my goodness. What happened?

Jessica: Ben knows, and that's that. But don't worry about me. I'm fine.

Bonnie: No, you're not. Not unless -- did Ben understand?

[Jessica laughs]

Jessica: Oh, no.

Bonnie: Oh, mom, just give him some time. Ben would definitely come around.

Jessica: Oh, why should he, Bonnie? I mean, why should he? I did something wrong, something incredibly wrong. And I lied about it.

Bonnie: Well, you panicked. But now you've admitted the truth, mom. You've admitted to it, and now all we've gotta do is just keep talking to Ben. You owned it, and you own your mistake. Just keep talking to Ben, and remind him how much you love him. And eventually, he will remember that he is crazy about you.

Jessica: I didn't "own" anything. I didn't tell Ben. I tried. Every time I tried, I could never get up the nerve. And then he found me in Marshall's room, and it was too late to explain.

Bonnie: So it wasn't just Ben you were lying to. It was me, too. You and Marshall are still having an affair?

Man: $2 -- $2 for the hot dog. You want a hot dog, lady? Hot dogs.

You keep on turning in circles there's no end to that dead-end road

Alison: Excuse me? What's going on?

Marla: It's a fund-raiser. My sorority does it every year for a charity here in Memphis. They raise money for kids with disabilities. Know who Brad Martin is?

Alison: Oh, the musician? Yeah, I love his music.

Marla: You don't really look like the type who listens to country.

Alison: Well, I was just in Nashville. I mean, hello? It was only the birthplace of country music. Is that really Brad Martin?

Marla: That's him. He agreed to do a live show for us. It'll be our best year yet.

Ed: Hit the bull's-eye and dunk me. I'll get wet. It'll be fun. Come on, people. It's for a good cause.

Alison: You're not gonna raise a cent if you keep that lame-o in the dunk tank.

Marla: Do you have a better suggestion?

Alison: Yeah. Um, hello? Excuse me -- what's your name?

Ed: Ed.

Alison: Well, do you want someone to dunk you?

Ed: Yeah.

Alison: Well, then you have to stop being so nice. You have to make them want to dunk you. You have to insult them.

Ed: I -- I don't know.

Alison: Listen -- do you want me to help you raise a ton of cash or not?

Ed: Yeah, sure.

Alison: Well, then just buy some hot dogs for me and my friends, and I'll help you get the job done. Is that a deal?

Ed: Deal.

Alison: Okay. Outta my way. Listen, all you suckers out there! You want me to shut up? There's only one way to do it. Fork it over.

Carly: Actually, Rosanna, I dropped in for a little DNA test. Part of my never-ending quest to prove that we're not related.

Rosanna: You're here to see Dr. Schiller?

Emily: No! Actually, I am.

Rosanna: Oh. I hope nothing is wrong.

Emily: Hmm, no. No, everything's fine. I just -- well, I hate doctors, so I decided to bring along a friend. Don't you ever do that?

Carly: She would need to have a friend first, I think.

[Rosanna laughs]

Rosanna: How's that delinquent little sister of yours?

Emily: Thank you for caring. We hope she's fine, along with Lucy and Aaron.

Rosanna: Oh, yes, Lucy. Poor Lucy. She really is the victim in this horrible situation, isn't she? Lovely girl, raised with every advantage. And now she has to put her fate into the hands of a thief and an arsonist. Poor Craig is just worried sick.

Carly: Hal will find them and bring them all home safely.

Rosanna: I'm not so sure about that. Poor Hal, with the state of mind that he's in these days -- oh, I'm so sorry. He's your husband, isn't he? And the father of your child. Whoops. Well, I guess the chief of detectives has been a little busy these last couple of years. Must be quite a guy.

Carly: You would wrap yourself around him like a string of Christmas lights if you thought there was half a chance. But there's not, is there? In fact, no man ever seems to want you enough.

Rosanna: Well, Craig certainly does.

Carly: Really? Is that why he hasn't spent a night in Oakdale since I don't know when? Because he can't stand to be away from you?

Rosanna: He's not here because he's looking for Lucy. He doesn't want her to be a victim of Hal's personal vendetta.

[Carly chuckles]

Carly: Is that what he told you? Well, guess again. The only reason Craig is on the road is because you're not.

Rosanna: You know, it's funny that you're in the fashion business, Carly. You're such a natural for mud wrestling. I, however, am not. So, if you'll excuse me --

Carly: Hey! One more thing -- why don't you call your little lap dog off?

Rosanna: What? I'm sorry?

Carly: Henry Coleman. Your pathetic excuse for a private investigator. Just keep him and his blackmail games away from me.

Rosanna: Blackmail?

[Rosanna laughs] Now, doesn't that sound interesting? Certainly sounds like she's up to something. Doesn't it, Emily?

Jessica: No, I am not still sleeping with Marshall. I went over there to get that damn tape.

Bonnie: And you didn't sleep with him once you got there?

Jessica: No. But I would have. I would have, in exchange for that videotape. I would have given him whatever he wanted. But he asked for the one thing that no longer belongs to me. I love Ben.

Bonnie: So, who has the tape?

Jessica: I do. Here it is. The one and only copy.

Bonnie: And he just gave it to you for nothing?

Jessica: Oh, no. He got his payment.

Bonnie: Mom, did he hurt you?

Jessica: No. Ben. He hurt Ben. Marshall played the tape for Ben.

Bonnie: Oh, no. Oh, mom. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. This tape -- I can't stand it! Mom, I'm so sorry. I'm sorry.

Jessica: Me, too. Me, too.

Bonnie: So did -- did Ben -- watch?

Jessica: Yeah. For a minute or two. And then he -- he turned it off, and he walked out, without a word. And he was so hurt. And so angry. And I have ruined so many lives.

Bonnie: No, you haven't, mom. You just -- we just have to make him understand that you never -- you never stopped loving him, mom. And this whole stupid thing with Marshall -- it was just a mistake, mom. It was a mistake.

Jessica: No. It's over, sweetie. It's over. You know? All I just need to move forward. I need to just put one foot in front of the other. And -- I need to concentrate on Paul Ryan's defense. And I certainly can't be an emotional basket case.

Bonnie: No, mom. What? That's just it? You're just gonna bury yourself in law, and Ben bury himself in medicine, until both of you forget how to live? No!

Jessica: Sweetie, that tape -- ruined my life. It ruined my relationship with the man I love. But, you know, it also put a little steel in my heart. And I am going to walk into that courtroom, and I am going to win. Now, I gotta go. I gotta go.

Bonnie: Mom, I love you.

Jessica: I love you.

Bonnie: I love you.

Jessica: I'll talk to you later.

Bonnie: You want to win in the courtroom, mom? Then exactly what you're gonna do.

Ben: No, no.

Isaac: What --

Ben: You knew! And you never told me! You let me walk into a porno flick starring Jessica and Marshall Travers!

Isaac: What are you talking about? What is he talking about, "porno flick"?

Ben: What kinda brother are you?

Mike: Okay, all right.

Isaac: Sit down.

Ben: No!

Isaac: I hope that you're not operating today.

Mike: No, he called in sick on the way over here. Listen, just hear him out, all right?

Isaac: First thing we have to do is sober you up.

Ben: No, the first thing we have to do is talk about Jessica and Travers sleeping around behind my back and you knowing!

Isaac: I didn't know anything. I had my thoughts, but nobody wanted to hear me. And I told you, remember?

Ben: No. I don't remember you saying anything about it all being on tape.

Isaac: I didn't know anything about a tape! The only tape I've heard about is the one Bonnie's chasing after, and I -- the last few months just fell into place. The person who knew about the tape and didn't tell ya was Bonnie.

Marshall: What do you want?

Bonnie: An answer to my question.

Marshall: No. I don't work for Steinbeck.

Bonnie: And I already know that you do. So -- what happened between you two in Rio six months ago?

Alison: Hey, you! Are those your own feet, or are you trying to break them in for the circus?

[Crowd laughs] and you -- I hope you got a free oil change with that nasty hairdo.

[Crowd laughs]

Girl: Excuse me?!

Alison: And you -- I mean, it's amazing what a little imagination and a potato sack can do with that shirt.

Girl: Excuse me -- who do you think you are?

Alison: Oh, say what? You don't like me? Well, then do something about it! Buy a ticket and hit the bull's-eye! I just happen to be one of those bad things that happen to good people. And speaking of bad things, your football team, the Lynx? Well, they are awful. I mean, I heard they do win most of the games, unless, of course, they play against another team. [Crowd protests] there's no way that they could throw a ball down a hill.

Girl: I'm first. Here, take my drink.

Alison: Come on! Let me see what you got! Come on! Oh, please! A one-armed bandit could do a better job! Come on!

Lucy: That's Alison. I'd know that voice anywhere.

Alison: Oh, please!

Girl: Get her!

Lucy: You've got to be kidding me. This is too good to be true.

Alison: Oh, well, if it isn't little miss goody two-shoes?

Lucy: Do you have a dollar?

Alison: Oh, come on stingy, give her a dollar. But don't expect a good return on your money, because this little girl couldn't hit me if her life depended on it.

Lucy: Yeah, we'll see about that. Please? My boyfriend's gonna get something for fixing the car, anyway. I can pay you back.

[Crowd shouts]

Alison: Oh, she's a powerhouse. I'm so scared. Come on, Lucy-goosey! Let me see what you can do! Come on!

Girl: Get her!

[Crowd cheers]

Girl: Yeah. Yeah.

Carly: You're still jealous about something that happened all those years ago? Why don't you just get over it?

Rosanna: Well, I am. It seems that you're the one that can't keep your hand out of the cookie jar.

Carly: I happen to be a happily married woman. Married to a very attractive, very sexy man.

Rosanna: Who has no idea what you were up to the night before your wedding. But he will.

Carly: Well, if you think that Jack is gonna buy into anything that you paid Henry to manufacture, you're nuts.

Rosanna: Whatever you may think, I have nothing to do with what Henry does. If he's blackmailing you, it's his business, not mine. Now I've got to go. Wish I could say it's been fun.

Carly: Remind me to stay away from Rosanna whenever I might be pregnant. She makes me wanna throw up.

Emily: She makes everyone wanna throw up.

[Carly chuckles]

Emily: Oh, Dr. Schiller! Hi. This is my friend, Carly Tenney.

Dr. Schiller: Nice to meet you.

Carly: Thanks.

Dr. Schiller: Oh, dear. My last patient didn't finish filling out her pre-op form.

Emily: That wouldn't be Rosanna Cabot's, would it?

Dr. Schiller: You know her?

Carly: Yes. She's my sister. Is there something I can do to help her?

Dr. Schiller: No. I'll have the nurse call her. Let's start on you.

Emily: Okay. I'll be here waiting. Good luck.

Marshall: Once again, Ms. McKechnie, I have no idea what you're talking about.

Bonnie: Now, see, you were brought up on the right side of the law. So why become a shark for hire? Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but you were never owned by anyone before. And then six months ago, you met James Steinbeck. And you sold your soul.

Marshall: You know, it's -- it's time for you to leave. Have a nice day.

Bonnie: See, I had to read up on you Marshall. I had to figure out how did you become this. At first, I thought it was money. And then -- well, you have more than enough of that. And then I thought, maybe it's just the excitement, you know? But then I couldn't imagine a man as proud as you are enjoying taking orders from a mere criminal. And then I realized -- you threw yourself in the sewer because you cared about something beyond yourself. Something -- or someone. Why don't you tell me about that someone, Marshall? And why is she worth risking everything that matters?

Isaac: Look me in the eye, and tell me that you know I would never betray you.

Ben: All I know is that videotape keeps playing in my head, and I feel like the whole world is laughing at me.

Isaac: Nobody would do that now.

Ben: What about Travers? He's probably still laughing at the look on my face when he played that tape.

Isaac: Back up. Marshall was there when you saw the tape?

Ben: He said, "hey, man, you wanna know the truth? Pictures speak louder than words." And he pushes a button. And the whole time I'm watching this -- this tape of him, I'm just sick. And the two of them and they're standing there, and they're just looking at me.

Isaac: Jessica was there, too? Oh, I'm sorry, Ben.

Ben: I had to get out of there, so I left. And she stayed. For all I know, they're sitting there making a sequel.

Isaac: Rest easy. I know she's at the Lakeview with Bonnie.

Ben: You know, I don't give a damn where she is or who she's with! I don't wanna hear another thing about -- that woman again.

Isaac: Well, you might wanna hear this. I'm planning to get some payback. I'm gonna take Marshall Travers down.

Ben: Yeah, don't you hurt Travers.

Isaac: No, no, this is nothing violent.

Ben: No, I'm saying, don't you hurt Travers, because that pleasure will be mine, and mine alone.

Emily: Hey. So --

Carly: Brush up on your nursery rhymes. I don't have the flu.

Emily: Oh! A baby! You're having a baby!

Carly: Shh!

Emily: Well, it's not like you can keep it a secret forever.

Carly: Not forever, but for now. Everything feels so out of control, you know. Especially since I saw Rosanna here. She's probably gonna find out I'm pregnant and tell Jack.

Emily: No, no, don't worry about her. I think she's got troubles of her own. In fact, did Dr. Schiller say why she's having surgery?

Carly: No. And God knows I tried to weasel it out of her. Apparently there's something in this Hippocratic oath about blabbing about other patients.

Emily: Well, you know, I wouldn't worry. Rosanna is so toxic, germs don't stand a chance.

Carly: Hey, thanks, for making me go to the doctor and setting it up.

Emily: You're pregnant!

Carly: Which means I have to start thinking. Like, about where I'm going to hide these from Jack. Could you explain something to me? Could you explain to me how I could be so madly in love with my husband and pregnant by another guy?

Emily: Don't do that to yourself. All right, you said when it happened, you thought you and Jack were over.

Carly: Yeah.

Emily: Yeah.

Carly: Do you think we can skip lunch? I feel like I need go home and think about things.

Emily: Oh, yeah. Yeah, actually, there's sort of something I need to take care of. So that's great.

Carly: What? Come on, I'm pregnant, not dying. Spit it out.

Emily: I get to beg Barbara to call my husband, her ex, and ask him to come home.

Carly: Oh, that's humiliating. There's no other way?

Emily: No. He doesn't return anyone's calls, even Margo's. I figure if he hears from her, he'll assume it's about Will and come home.

Carly: Well then, you should do it. He needs a wake-up call.

Emily: Yeah.

Carly: Would you like me to stick around, in case Barbara starts to gloat? I feel sort of in the mood to give somebody aat lip.

Emily: No. I will do this. Just wish me happy groveling.

Alison: Now it's your turn.

Lucy: No, come on, Alison. Stop.

Alison: Come on!

Lucy: Aaron, what happened?

Aaron: I fixed Ruthie's car. No problem. Check this out. 50 bucks.

Lucy: Oh, that's great. Here, wait. Here you go. I told you I'd pay you back.

Alison: Now we can eat.

Aaron: Hey, why are you all wet?

Danny: Hey, dude, where's Ruthie?

Aaron: I have no idea. She paid me and she took off.

Danny: So what'd you do? Tell her she should find herself a guy who knows more about cars?

Aaron: No, man, of course not.

Danny: Yeah, right.

Alison: Should we tell Aaron why I'm all wet?

Lucy: Definitely!

Aaron: No, no, no.

Marla: You gonna put him in the booth? People will surely start to buy tickets now. Put Rhodes College on the map.

Aaron: No, no! Guys, we don't have any time for this. Look, we have to get out of here.

Marla: Just a quick dunk. Honey?

Craig: Lucy!

Lucy: Daddy?

Holden: Aaron, please. Don't run from us again. We are here to help you out.

Craig: Thank God you're all right. Just hear us out, okay. Is there somewhere we can talk quietly?

Lucy: I'm not leaving Aaron.

Craig: All right, look. I don't wanna make a scene here, but you should know that Hal Munson is not far behind us.

Aaron: Look, everything that's happened is my fault. The girls have done nothing but try to help me the whole time.

Holden: Aaron, Aaron, just listen to me, all right. There's news -- good news from Oakdale. There's evidence that maybe you didn't start that fire after all. So if you come with us, we'll try to explain everything to you.

Danny: You got it honey baby, just like that

Hal: Hey, excuse me. Hey, I'm looking for these three kids. You wouldn't happen to have seen them, would you?

Danny: Yeah, I've seen them, all right. And this guy, Aaron -- my Ruthie dumped me because of him.

Hal: Do you know which way they went?

Danny: I don't know. A couple of older guys hauled 'em off.

Hal: Holden and Craig. Hey, thanks.

Danny: Whatever.

Hal: Wow. Cooperation.

Emily: Barbara?

Barbara: I didn't grant you permission to come in here.

Emily: I have a favor to ask of you, for Hal.

Barbara: For Hal?

Emily: You see, Hal's been on the road a very long time. And, well, it's almost Christmas, and he's still out there chasing after these three kids when he should be home, you know, with Will, like you are.

Barbara: Why don't you just call him yourself and ask him to come home, Emily? Oh, I should've known. Trouble in paradise, and you're still a bride. What a pity.

Emily: You and Hal are Will's parents, okay. So I have no influence over with any of this. But you -- if he calls or you speak with him, maybe you can just ask him to come home, please.

Barbara: If and when Hal calls, I will tell him not to come home unless he's dragging Aaron Snyder behind him. Will doesn't need his father here. He has me.

John: Dr. Harris has left some standing orders that if Will is improving, he should have some more scans.

Barbara: Oh, no, John. I will not subject my son to a barrage of more tests.

John: Can we maybe talk about this outside, Barbara?

Emily: Oh, hi, sweetheart. It's Emily. Listen, don't worry about all this squabbling you're listening to. It's nothing. It's just nerves. Everyone's worried about you. Especially your dad. You know, we all love you so much. And I was thinking if you come home, I bet your dad would come home, too. Will? Will! There you are. Hi.

Marshall: You think because my dad was a civil rights lawyer and my mom feeds the homeless, then I'm supposed to be out to help my fellow man? Martin Luther King, Thurgood Marshall and a little bit of Jesus all wrapped into one. Wrong, little girl. I only get paid in cash. Now, why don't you just run along? I've got a lot of work to do if I'm going to put your buddy, Paul Ryan in jail. And believe me, I will do it.

Bonnie: And what about Neia?

Marshall: Who?

Bonnie: Neia Bellaguese, your girlfriend from Boston U. She dropped out right before graduation and went back home to Brazil. Rio, in fact. I don't suppose you've talked to her lately. Or have you?

Ben: I'm the one that's gonna get Travers. I'm gonna get him in a dark alley, and nobody's gonna videotape what I do to him.

Isaac: That's the alcohol talking.

Ben: No, that's me talking!

Isaac: Ben, Marshall didn't cheat on you. Marshall didn't break your trust. And since you're too good of a man to ever raise your hand to a woman, you wanna raise both of them to Marshall. But the sad fact of it is, Jessica lied to you, man. And she's to blame.

Jessica: Isaac's right.

Ben: I don't have a thing to say to you.

Jessica: All right, then I'll do the talking. I actually came over here to see Isaac to ask him not to be angry with Bonnie. But here you are, so -- I wish I knew how to begin.

Ben: You better go ahead and finish, because this is the last conversation that we will ever have.

Rosanna: Thank you so much for coming.

Emma: Well, I was really relieved when you called me. I was very worried, the way you left the farm so suddenly.

Rosanna: I'm so sorry. I wish I could've stayed, had tea and talked. But --

Emma: Why didn't you?

Rosanna: Well, I really wanted to. I guess I was just feeling a little lonely and confused, you know.

Emma: Sweetheart, when you reach out, sometimes it makes it better.

Rosanna: Well, I did go to see Craig in Nashville, which was nice. It was good. And I was gonna tell him.

Emma: Tell him what?

Rosanna: It seems that I'm going to have surgery.

Emma: Is it serious?

Rosanna: Well, it's not life-threatening, no. No, but in another way, it's about as serious as it gets. Emma, after this operation, I'm not going to be able to have a baby.

Carly: It's open.

Henry: I'm back. Well, and won't my therapist be proud? The old Henry, he just would've given up when you kicked him out last night. He would've gone to the nearest bar and had the martini cure. But not the new Henry.

Carly: Well, get out, new Henry, before I really hurt you.

Henry: You're right. Hey, hey, this is funny. Wasn't Mike supposed to throw Jack a bachelor party? He ended up throwing you one instead, didn't he? He brought his own stripper, himself.

Carly: That's wrong. And I will not pay you to hide a bunch of ridiculous lies!

Henry: Do pregnancy tests lie, Carly? I found this in your trash. You know, my therapist says I should be more open to advice. So, I'm just gonna ask you -- with whom should I discuss this joyous baby news? You or your handsome hubby?
