Bob: Is that Travers?

Ben: Yeah.

Bob: How's it look?

Ben: Not good.

Bob: That bullet couldn't be in a worse place.

Ben: Yeah. It's going to be difficult to remove it without causing any more damage.

Bob: But you can't leave it. It's a miracle that bullet hasn't killed him already. You still want to do this, Ben?

Ben: Bob, I told you, I'm fine with this.

Bob: I asked the question for your protection as well as the patient's.

Ben: You know what Travers is to me right now? He's this. A brain. He needs medical help, and I'm a doctor. That's all that matters.

Bob: That's what I wanted to hear you say.

Ben: Excuse me. I'm gonna go see my radiologist.

Oliver: Thanks for walking me up here. I am sure you have better things to do.

Jessica: Well, I'm happy to help in any way I can.

Oliver: You know, the last time I was in Oakdale, I had a feeling that you and Thurgood had more going on than just adversaries in a courtroom.

Jessica: Well, he also defeated me in the election for District Attorney.

Oliver: I meant something a little more personal.

Jessica: I'll be honest with you, Mr. Travers. I'm not sure I could describe what your son and I were to each other.

Oliver: And now?

Jessica: It's over.

Mike: If anyone finds out that you stole $50,000 from the company safe, this is the last designing job you'll ever have. And I will not let that happen.

Carly: Well, I will not let you mortgage your future because I had a momentary lapse of sanity.

Molly: Morning.

Mike: Hey.

Molly: Hey. You wanna tell me why you got out of bed so early?

Mike: I don't know. I was up.

Molly: Because?

Mike: I feel bad about the way I treated you the other night.

Molly: For the most part, I think you treat me very well at night.

Mike: You had some questions about the money that I borrowed from Lucinda. And I wasn't exactly forthcoming with the information.

Molly: You noticed that, too, huh?

Mike: To be honest, I would have been happier if you didn't know, but then you found out. And I just -- I feel like I was forced into explaining.

Molly: Mike, you know what? It's okay.

Mike: It is?

Molly: Yeah. We're not married. You don't owe me any explanations of any details of your life.

Mike: Just the same, I could've been nicer about it. So, for what it's worth, I'm sorry.

Molly: You're forgiven.

Mike: Thank you. All right. I'm gonna go make us some breakfast.

Molly: Although, you know, if you did want to talk more about why you took this loan, it wouldn't bother me at all to listen.

Carly: Don't tell Rosanna. You want to be the one I turn to in my hour of need.

Well, I need you now. Please, don't let Rosanna ruin things for Mike and Molly or

for me and Jack. I'm begging you, Craig.

Craig: I used to like it when you begged.

Carly: Damn it, Craig! Please! If I ever meant anything to you, if you ever loved me at all,

Please -- please, don't let me get hurt.

Rosanna: My, my. Let he who is without sin throw the first piece of paper.

Craig: Well, it wouldn't be me.

Rosanna: Me, neither. What's the matter? Cell phone broken?

Craig: I turned it off. I thought you were shopping.

Rosanna: I was. What do you think?

Craig: It's -- it's magnificent, Rosanna.

Rosanna: Well, thank you. I bought it because it went so well with your Christmas present, which I loved. Which I already told you, didn't I?

Craig: Yes, yes. Well, I'm glad it made you happy. Yeah.

Rosanna: Something wrong?

Craig: It's just -- the post-holiday blues. I should be over that by New Year's Day.

Rosanna: Well, maybe I could do something to speed up the process.

Craig: Yeah.

Rosanna: What is it?

Craig: Hmm? What?

Rosanna: Well, you have every reason to be happy, and you're not. So that tells me one of two things. Either you've been abducted by aliens -- or you've been sitting here, stewing about Carly.

Parker: Mommy, what are you doing?

Carly: Parker! Do you know what "disconnect the phone" means?

Parker: No.

Carly: It means that mommy fixed it so that nobody can call us today. Because today is strictly for our family. For you and for me and for Jack and J. J.

Jack: Anyone down there want to toss a few snowballs?

Parker: I do!

Jack: Not like that, you can't. Hey, do you think you could go put your snow gear on all by yourself?

Parker: Yes.

Jack: All right. Then go. Hurry. Come on, go, go, go, go, go! This has got to be something to see. Hey, I've got a parenting question for you. Why is it that Roberta can put Jackie down for a nap in like five minutes and it takes me more than an hour?

Carly: Well, that's because Jackie's already learned that, if he stays up, you'll play with him.

Jack: I knew that he was a brilliant kid. Thank you very much.

Carly: So, is he asleep, or isn't he?

Jack: He's close. But Roberta's got our back if you want to go sledding with Parker and me.

Carly: Oh, um, why don't we just keep that a guy thing?

Jack: What's the matter? Is you chicken? Huh? You're gonna regret this.

[Cell phone ringing] That's me.

Carly: No. No, Jack -- don't answer. We don't need anybody today except each other, Jack.

Jack: It's the station. I've got to answer it. Snyder. Okay. Yeah. I'll be down there when I can. Thanks. I gotta go.

Carly: Why?

Jack: They're transferring Steinbeck to a maximum security facility today. I've got to be there to hand him over to the federal marshals.

Carly: Why? Isn't there anybody else who can do that?

Jack: It's my case. I know him better than anybody. I'm sorry. I'll be back soon.

Carly: Jack, I didn't want to share you today with anybody. Don't you understand that?

Jack: Yeah, well, I have been chasing Steinbeck longer than I've been chasing you. It's very important to me.

Carly: Since the second we got married, it's been one ordeal after another. Julia and Jackie, and Hal chasing after Aaron, and Paul Ryan getting thrown in jail for murder. But today is a day that we set aside for us, for our family. Isn't that important, too? Just one day where we can lock the world out, Jack, and enjoy each other and our children.

Jack: This isn't like you. What's going on?

Carly: I told you. We made a plan. And I think we ought to stick to it.

Jack: No, this is something else. You're scared. And I want to know why.

Bob: Ben? This is Mr. Travers, Marshall's father.

Ben: Ah. Mr. Travers, good to meet you, sir.

Oliver: I understand you're operating on my son.

Ben: That's correct, sir.

Oliver: You been at it long?

Ben: About ten years.

Oliver: You like your work?

Ben: Very much.

Oliver: Would you still do it if they paid you half of what you're getting now?

Ben: I'd do it for a third. But don't tell my boss.

Oliver: How well do you know my son?

Ben: I followed his career. I wouldn't classify as his friend, but that's not gonna stop me from saving his life.

Jack: Carly, if you have something to tell me, just --

Carly: No.

Jack: -- Tell me.

Carly: I don't. You need to go. You should go. I'm sorry I flipped out on you.

Jack: Hi, buddy.

Carly: Parker, honey, you know, you're gonna have to wait a little while before you can go sledding, okay?

Jack: Listen, I have to go in to the Police station for a little bit. Don't. Don't look like that. I'm gonna be back soon. And then we'll go sledding for the rest of the day.

Carly: Jack, he'll be fine. Just go.

Jack: I'll see you soon. And I'll see you soon.

Carly: I know, sweetheart. I know you're disappointed. So am I. But I have an idea. Why don't you and I go sledding together, just us? What? Yes, you know, your mother can steer a sled. It's true. So just let me get all ready, and then we'll go.

Roberta: You'll be fine, mother. Just get off your feet and put yourself to bed. Okay. Oh, Mrs. Snyder, I'm afraid I have a problem.

Carly: What? What is it?

Roberta: Well, my mother has a bad heart. She's been having palpitations. She needs someone to be with her.

Carly: Meaning?

Roberta: I'm the only one in the family that lives nearby. My brother's in Michigan. My sister lives in San Diego.

Carly: I -- I understand.

Roberta: I am so sorry. Listen, I'll try to be back by tomorrow.

Carly: No, no. Take your time.

Roberta: Okay.

Carly: I hope your mother feels better.

Roberta: Okay. Oh, I forgot to mention -- Jackie -- his tummy's been upset. I'm not -- I'm sure it won't be anything, but please keep an eye on him.

Carly: Okay. Thanks for the update.

Roberta: Okay.

Parker: Can we go sledding now?

Craig: I have plenty of things on my mind. That doesn't necessarily mean Carly.

Rosanna: You know, I told you recently that she stole money from the company. You haven't mentioned it.

Craig: I confronted her. She denied it.

Rosanna: Surprise, surprise. Did you check the safe?

Craig: Yes, it's all there. Every dollar.

Rosanna: That's impossible.

Craig: Look for yourself.

Rosanna: She must have replaced it. She must have gotten the money from another source and put it back in the safe before you had time to come here and check it.

Craig: Well, that's entirely possible.

Rosanna: And that's all you're gonna say? "That's entirely possible"?

Craig: No, I will also add that I couldn't care less.

Rosanna: She stole money from us, Craig! From you and me. You could have fired her on the spot.

Craig: No one saw her take it. Besides, getting rid of her would set this company back a year. Maybe more.

Rosanna: Well, we could have gone to New York. We could have found another designer.

Craig: I am not interested in bringing anybody new back now. Carly may be trouble, but her work is spectacular.

Rosanna: So you're not going to do anything about it? That's what you're trying to say.

Craig? Au contraire. I'm going to do plenty. And I'm going to start by taking you out to dinner so we can concentrate on each other instead of pondering other people.

Rosanna: Where are you going?

Craig: I'm gonna see my accountant. But we'll have dinner at 7:00. Wear something special, huh?

Rosanna: I already am! [Rosanna sighs] I don't know if I can do this.

James: Heard the news, Jack? I'm being taken on an outing.

Jack: Love seeing you like this, James. You're taking the long walk -- maximum security. No chance for escape.

James: Sounds like a challenge.

Jack: Don't get your hopes up.

James: Well, I'm optimistic by nature.

Jack: We know you killed Brandy Taylor. And now you're looking at attempted murder, with witnesses. If Traverse dies, two counts of murder you're looking at.

James: Hmm. You know, if you think about it, it really wasn't my fault that Traverse was shot.

Jack: Really?

James: No.

Jack: Whose fault was it this time?

James: Yours, Jack. You could have stopped me. You had plenty of time. You didn't see my gun. But then, you didn't look.

Jack: Get him in there.

Jack: Margo call you, too?

Barbara: She thought maybe I would want to see James being removed.

Paul: Same here.

Barbara: May I speak to him, Jack?

Jack: That choice is yours, Barbara. He's in there.

Paul: Wait, wait -- just for the record, tell me that there's no way he can possibly hurt her.

Jack: Chained, hand to foot.

Paul: All the same, mom, you be careful.

James: Well, how wonderful, darling. You've come to bid me farewell.

Barbara: No, James. The pleasure is all mine. I wouldn't have missed this opportunity.

James: Please sit and hold my hands.

Barbara: No, thank you. You've held me for the last time.

James: Now, darling, I know this separation is going to be difficult for both of us, but I am gonna ask you to remain faithful during my absence.

Barbara: James, this is not a separation. It's a divorce.

James: No. No, you --

Barbara: I am divorcing you. And as soon as these papers go through, I will be rid of you. Forever.

Ben: The bullet is pressed against the optic nerve. I'm going to perform what is called a craniotomy to remove the bullet. Now, saving your son's vision depends on how much damage the bullet has done and whether or not I can remove it without creating any more.

Oliver: You got any numbers?

Ben: Beg your pardon?

Oliver: Thurgood's chances of retaining his eyesight.

Ben: I can't make that kind of prediction. The variables are too complicated.

Oliver: You must have the proverbial nerves of steel.

Ben: My job can be complicated, but it doesn't compare to defending a black janitor, falsely accused of murder, and winning the case before an all-white jury.

Oliver: Yeah, you've done your homework.

Ben: I like to be prepared.

Oliver: The papers I need to sign so we can get this operation under way?

Bob: I'll get the release papers, and I'll be right back.

Oliver: I'm glad to see you stuck around. I kind of thought you would.

Jessica: You did?

Oliver: Sure. I think you still care about my son.

Mike: Okay, for the last time -- okay, I had some old debts on the books. They were running up some interest. I just -- I wanted to take care of my credit. I discussed it with Lucinda. She gave me good rates. So I borrowed the money. I'm sorry that I was not up front with you about that but, frankly, I was embarrassed.

Molly: Mike, I know you want me to think that you're perfect. But you have absolutely no reason to be embarrassed about anything in front of me.

Mike: I'll try to remember that, all right?

Molly: I have another question. And maybe I should quit while I'm ahead, but I'm just -- could I ask you maybe why Craig was here again the other night?

Mike: You think the other story was embarrassing; this one's just as bad. Um -- Rosanna has been pumping Craig full of stories about me. Craig reacts, thinks he has something to prove.

Molly: Because -- he's jealous of you?

Mike: I didn't say it made sense.

Molly: You and Rosanna, you've been apart for a long time. I mean, what could she possibly say to him to set him off like that?

Mike: I have no idea.

Molly: Unless -- it's not you and Rosanna he's jealous of. It's you and somebody else.

Emma: Oh!

Rosanna: So how does it feel to be a grandmother again?

Emma: Oh, it gets better and better.

[Rosanna laughs]

Emma: Wonderful.

Rosanna: I'm so happy for you. It's just lovely. Oh!

Emma: Are you okay?

Rosanna: Oh.

Emma: Are you all right? Come -- you okay? Come sit down. Can I get you something? Some water or -- ?

Rosanna: I'm fine, really. I just -- I just get these sudden cramps sometimes. It's really nothing to worry about. Really. I'm so sorry to scare you like that.

Emma: I take it you've scheduled this surgery, yes?

Rosanna: Oh, well -- actually, I've decided to put it off until after the holidays. You -- I'm fine now, really. Craig, he's got so much to worry about with Lucy, and --

Emma: Does he have any idea how serious fibroid tumors can be?

Rosanna: Well -- I haven't exactly told him yet.

Emma: Why not?

Rosanna: He's got lots of things to worry about.

Emma: Is that the only reason?

Rosanna: Well, I'm afraid how he might react. He might see me as damaged goods.

Emma: Rosanna, sweetheart, is that how you see yourself?

Rosanna: Well -- a little. I mean, if I were a man, I'd want somebody who could give me a child one day. Somebody who was certainly a woman in every sense of the word.

Emma: You -- now, you listen to me. You are a beautiful woman. You are a beautiful, fine human being. And if Craig doesn't like you the way you are, then you are better off without him. Hmm?

Rosanna: Well -- I don't really feel that way, though, you know? I'm beginning to depend on having him in my life.

Emma: Then how about this? Why don't you just -- just square your shoulders and take a deep breath and tell Craig? And give him a chance to show you how much he cares for you.

Carly: Oh, come on, J. J.! Work with me here, okay? I know you're disappointed, honey. And sometimes we make plans, and even though those plans are very, very good plans, things don't go exactly the way you want them to. I've got a million of them like that. I'll tell you about 'em someday. Or not. [Doorbell rings] Parker, don't open the door right now. Let me see who it is. Okay?

Craig: Parker! Hombre! Que pasa? Dame un abajo. Ay-yi-yi! Where'd you get so strong? You been getting to the gym or something? Let me in here.

Carly: What are you doing here, Craig?

Craig: I came here to see Parker. I have no desire to visit with you.

Carly: Well, we're rather busy right now, okay? I'm trying to get the baby to sleep. And then --

Craig: Hey, hombre, you remember that time we were driving around in the car? We ended up in that toy store. We found that game with the car and loops and the thing that goes loop-da-loop?

Parker: Yes.

Craig: Well, guess what I found in my trunk? Huh?

Parker: Mom, look!

Carly: Oh, that's very nice, sweetheart. Be sure you say, "thank you."

Parker: Thank you!

Craig: Ah, that's not necessary, amigo. It's Christmas. That's when amigos like you and me give each other presents. Hey, why don't you go upstairs and check it out? See if it's still as cool as you remember. You have any trouble; you give ol' Craig a holler. It's the holidays. I couldn't --

Carly: Please, all right? I'm trying to get this baby to sleep. What? Your work is done here, Santa. Get out. Or would you rather have Jack throw you out?

Craig: I didn't see Jack's car out front. I'm betting he's not here.

Carly: Well that can be remedied with a simple phone call. Jack Snyder, please. His wife.

Craig: I hate it when these things fall out.

Carly: Wasn't the other night enough for you, Craig? When you practically spit on me? Why do you keep trying to ruin my life?

Craig: I have a better question for you. How can you even suggest I never loved you?

Carly: Are you actually attacking me for using the phrase, "if you ever really loved me"? Because that is not just pathetic, Craig. It's bizarre.

Craig: You asked me to lie to your husband about your little quickie with Molly's boyfriend. You could've asked me as a friend. But what's pathetic is you get all hysterical on me.

Carly: And how do you expect me to react when you called me a whore?

Craig: Well, you set me off! Carly, I have never given myself to anyone the way I gave myself to you. I don't need to have that challenged. Not after all we've been through.

Carly: You expect me to apologize to you, don't you?

Craig: I think that would be appropriate, yes.

Carly: Do you know what my life feels like lately, Craig? Like one of those movies about the Middle Ages where the castle is being assaulted from all sides. Over here we have Rosanna, who is getting dangerously closer by the hour. And on this wall climbing up, we have Julia and her baby. And right in the middle is my business, my precious, wonderful business that I am single-handedly trying to put on the map. And right next to that, we have Jack and Parker, who need me. But I am too busy trying to keep people from scaling the walls. And now you? You are going to start with me with this distorted logic and this broken heart? Well, it's not going to work, Craig. I am not apologizing to you. Because nothing you are saying makes any sense at all. You are not angry that I questioned your love for me. You're angry that I slept with Mike instead of you.

[Carly sighs]

Rosanna: I think I may have told you what a wonderful time Craig and I had in Nashville. It was a real turning point in our relationship. And when we came back here and Lucy was sick, he turned to me for comfort. And we just -- I just felt like we were closer than ever. And -- we can't seem to sustain it. Every time I turn around, I feel like there's a little black cloud just lurking around somewhere.

Emma: Would this little black cloud happen to have rather light hair?

Rosanna: Carly is married -- supposedly happily. Have two children of her own. And yet I have the feeling that she would take Craig away from me just for the fun of it.

Emma: Now last time we spoke, you told me you were going to tell Carly about your operation. Did you? Was she unsympathetic? What happened?

Rosanna: She was -- she acted like a real sister. She was kind. She was supportive. She was everything that I would want a sister to be, and then I found out that the day before, she stole $50,000 from the company I financed.

Emma: What? Are you sure about that?

Rosanna: Yes!

Emma: Do you have proof?

Rosanna: Well, nothing definite. But she returned the money and denied everything.

Emma: Well, listen, if you don't have proof, you just have to, I guess, just let it go. You just have to get on. You have to get on with something positive. And one of the most positive things you can do right now is to tell Craig about this operation.

Rosanna: I've rehearsed it in my head. I have. What I would tell him about the surgery. But every time I go to tell him, I just can't seem to do it.

Emma: There is never going to be a perfect moment. You just have to decide you're going to do it. He's your love. You have to tell him. Tell him, Rosanna.

Rosanna: Okay, okay. I'll tell him. I'll -- I'll do it right now.

Emma: Good.

Rosanna: Okay.

[Phone rings]

Craig: Craig Montgomery.

Carly: Hey, Parker! Would you come down here?

Honey? It's time for lunch.

Craig: Hello? Hello?

Rosanna: I -- I think it might be better if I just tell him in person.

Jessica: Ben, I just came in to wish you luck.

Ben: Your friend Travers is the one who's gonna need it.

Jessica: Listen, about what Marshall's father said out there --

Ben: Jessica, please don't. Don't even explain. I -- you chase after Travers down to the dock. You watch him get shot by Steinbeck. You risk your life for the man. Why?

Jessica: I don't know. Now, I know this is confusing for you. It's confusing for me, too.

Ben: No, no, wait. I can't do this right now. All I can tell you -- no, for the next two hours, we both want the same thing. You want me to save Travers' life. And that's what I'm gonna do. After that -- I don't even know what's gonna happen.

Jessica: I understand. Marshall is very lucky to have you for his doctor.

James: What's on paper doesn't mean a thing. Darling, our love, our bond transcends the law.

Barbara: There is no bond between us, James. None whatsoever.

James: "Oh, love, let us be true to one another. For the world which seems to lie before is so various, so beautiful, so new, like a land of dreams, hath really neither joy -- "

Barbara: Stop it.

James: " -- Nor love, nor lights, nor certitude, nor peace, nor ease from pain. And here we are, as on a darkling plain -- "

Paul: -- Signing the paperwork? Mom, what happened?

James: Your mother is just very distraught at my departure. Now, son -- don't you be rude. You come here and give your dad a farewell hug.

Paul: You're not my father. You never have been.

James: I created you in my own image, Paul. And there's nothing you can do about it. Isn't this just grand? There's nothing quite like family.

Jack: Here he is. You enjoying yourself, James? Just wait till you get a load of your new home. Come on. He's all yours.

James: Adios, darling. I'll see you again real soon, when you least expect it.

Paul: Jack, get him out of here. Jack!

Jack: Let's go. Now!

Molly: Craig has an ego the size of Canada. So does it strike you even just a little bit odd that he would even notice who used to sleep with Rosanna?

Mike: Craig is a strange guy. I'm not gonna try to figure him out.

Molly: Mike, you guys were arguing when I went outside. And he was definitely upset about something specific.

Mike: Okay, do you wanna know what happened that night? Here it is. Some jerk knocked on our door with his head screwed on backwards, looking for trouble. I wasn't having it. I kicked him out. That's all there was to it. So can we just leave it at that, please?

Molly: Fine. If that's the way you want it, then forget I even brought it up.

Mike: Where are you going? I'm about to make us breakfast.

Molly: Yeah, I can't stay here. Okay? Or I'm gonna say something I really don't want to say.

Mike: Well -- I wanna hear what you have to say. I'd rather know what's on your mind.

Molly: I've been a news reporter for a few years, and I'm really good at listening between the lines. You're not exactly being honest with me, Mike. There's something that you're holding back.

Craig: There's no need to be offensive, especially after that insult the other night.

Carly: You grabbed me in the pitch dark outside Mike and Molly's. Once I realized I wasn't being murdered, you started in with this storm of verbal abuse about me sleeping with Mike. I blurted out, "If you ever loved me," because I was scared. That is the entire explanation. Now, please leave. Take your gripes with you.

Craig: You said something else. You asked me to see that you don't get hurt.

Carly: You missed your calling, Craig. You should've been a court reporter.

Craig: So, once again, I'm thinking, "how can I save you?" From Jack, from Molly, from yourself. From anything.

Carly: That isn't your job. I can take care of myself.

Craig: Well, despite all your efforts, I am not gonna stand by and watch you crumble under the weight of your mistakes.

Carly: There is only one thing I want from you, Craig. And that is to keep quiet about what happened between Mike and me. You can have Monte Carlo all to yourself. And I don't really care what excuse you come up with to take it away. But do not destroy my marriage. Because if you do, the war will be on. And I will hurt you as badly as you hurt me.

[Pounding on door]

Rosanna: Carly? Open up! [Pounding on door] I know you're in there with Craig!

[Pounding on door]

Barbara: I'll never be rid of him, Paul. He does own me. Because he's seen me at my worst. I asked him to kidnap three people. I don't even believe I did that, but I did. And not a moment goes by that I don't hate myself for that. And that's James' hold over me. That's what he always has on me.

Paul: What you did was wrong. But lately I've been thinking about things you did for me that were right. Raising me all by yourself. Teaching me how to be honest and fair. Bringing me along in the business. Allowing me to be your business partner.

Barbara: I didn't -- know you thought about things like that anymore.

Paul: Of course I still think about things like that. I haven't forgotten everything. I haven't forgotten everything you've been through, either. You know, marrying Craig Montgomery, the explosion at the boathouse. Now Will and the fire. The list goes on and on and on and on and on. And I know those things have taken their toll on you.

Barbara: They've changed me. I barely recognize myself anymore.

Paul: I feel the same way sometimes. That's why I think maybe we could change that if we try to rebuild what's been torn between us. James is gone now. We can both -- we can both breathe a hell of a lot easier. I think the time is now.

Barbara: I'll do anything. Anything you ask of me. Just so I can get my little boy back.

Paul: I'm right here, Mom.

Oliver: Excuse me. That's my boy. Can I have a moment with him?

Nurse #1: Certainly, sir.

Oliver: Oh -- I remember when you were growing up. The pride I felt every time you stepped into a room. You would say things that would stop people in their tracks. So far ahead of yourself and everybody. "How old is that boy again?" People would ask me. And I'd say -- 8 or 10 or whatever age you were at the time. And they would be shocked. But when you went corporate on me, a little bit of that pride just left me for awhile. Then I heard how you stood up to Stenbeck. Then you risked your life -- meeting him face-to-face because you thought that he might help you find your child. Son, they call that redemption. God, no one deserves it more than you.

[Oliver sobbing] I love you, son. And don't you worry -- you're gonna be stopping people in their tracks real soon. Real soon. Please, god.

[Oliver sobbing]

Ben: Get him to the O.R. now.

Ben: Mr. Travers, I'll get word to you as soon as the surgery's over.

Oliver: Yeah.

Jessica: Ben?

Molly: The last thing I want is to start sounding like some overbearing shrew.

Mike: You're not.

Molly: But I have to tell you that it's all starting to sound just really weird.

Mike: How so?

Molly: Because -- because you take out this secret loan from Lucinda. And then Craig shows up at the door, because he's jealous of you and Rosanna? And then I ask you about it, and you start dancing around it. And I -- I don't want to say this, but I can't help but feeling like I'm being shut out.

Mike: I'm sorry that you've lost faith in me.

Molly: Oh, no. Don't make this my problem. Because you and I and Rosanna and Craig -- we do not exist in a vacuum, mike. There is another element that's missing here. And I think we might as well just put it on the table right now.

Mike: What element is that?

Molly: As if you don't know. It's Carly.

[Pounding on door]

Carly: Put a sock in it! There is a baby asleep in here.

Rosanna: Why didn't you answer the door?

Carly: Because, Rosanna, I was hoping you'd go away.

Craig: Rosanna, what brings you here?

Rosanna: I could ask you the same question.

Craig: Well, I had some time. I had a Christmas present for Parker. I decided to drop it off.

Rosanna: Really? Where is he?

Craig: Parker? He's upstairs, playing with it. In fact, I'll go say good-bye. Then we can go to that coffeehouse.

Rosanna: No, I came here to deliver a message to my sister. I'm not going anywhere until I do that.

Craig: Okay, well, I can wait.

Rosanna: You managed to cover up your theft from the company that you are supposedly trying to build. But your other offense will not go unpunished.

Carly: My "other offense"? Well, I don't know what you're talking about.

Rosanna: You cheated on Jack with Mike Kasnoff! I think it's about time he found out about it.

Carly: How many times do I have to tell you this, Rosanna? You have no proof. Jack will never believe you.

Rosanna: Oh, I think he will. Because, deep in his heart, he knows what he married.

Craig: Rosanna?

Carly: It's over. It's all -- over.
