Rose: May I have your attention? If any of you have any doubts that Paul and I are engaged, please feast your eyes on this bad boy right there.

Paul: And, if you still have doubts, feast your eyes on this.

Lily: I'm glad the kids are at school.

Holden: Hey, guys, go get a room somewhere.

Rose: I'm not finished yet.

Lucinda: Enough. You've made your point. You're both madly in love.

Rose: You should try it sometime.

Holden: More champagne, anyone?

Lily: Yes, please.

Paul: Everybody, please fill up. Because I have one more announcement to make as soon as I find Dusty.

Dusty: What did I just tell you? There is nothing I can do. Paul just put a ring on her finger in front of -- all right. I'll try. But I'm telling you, it does not -- doesn't look good. It's the real thing between these two. Good-bye.

Paul: Sounds like my engagement is some sort of problem for you.

Alison: Remember that candy striper who brought me ice?

Katie: Yeah. You mean the one who slipped you the bag of candy you're trying to hide over there?

Alison: Caught me, huh? Do you want some chocolate? I have some caramels in here.

Susan: Morning, Katie.

Katie: Morning.

Susan: Hello, sweetheart. How are you feeling?

Alison: Not much better.

Susan: Aw. Well, let's take a look at your chart. Oh. You’re still having shortness of breath? Anxiety?

Alison: I feel like I can hear my heart pounding.

Susan: How's the old appetite?

Alison: It's terrible.

Susan: Well, I've got an idea how we can fix that. Tomorrow when you come home, I'm going to make you my lentil vegetable soup from scratch. Remember how you used to love that when you were a little girl?

Alison: Sure. But I don't want you to have to go through all that trouble for me, mom.

Susan: Oh, sweetie. It'll be a pleasure. In the meantime, you drink lots of water and think happy thoughts.

Alison: I'll do my best.

Susan: That's my good girl. I'll check in on you later. Bye, Katie.

Katie: Bye.

Alison: Think happy thoughts? Like what? How great my leg is going to look with an alarm around my ankle?

Katie: Oh, come on, Alison. She was just trying to make you feel better.

Alison: How am I supposed to feel better when I know as soon as I'm done being a prisoner in my mother's house, then some jury is gonna sentence me to 20 years?

Katie: Alison?

Alison: What?

Katie: Chocolate.

Alison: I'm sorry.

Katie: Mm, it looks so good. Finally, I'm gonna eat. Okay. Now listen to me. There's no reason for you to worry about facing a jury. Okay?

Alison: There isn't?

Katie: No. All you need to do is follow a few simple guidelines, and that jury will go very easy on you.

Gloria: Well, of course, your legs are important. But stability is about contracting your abs.

Lucy: I know, I know -- abs, glutes and no fear.

Gloria: Exactly. You keep working hard, you're gonna be walking before you know it.

Lucy: Didn't you say that to me yesterday?

Gloria: Yes. And I am going to keep on saying it until you're out of that chair.

Lucy: Thanks. I'll see you tomorrow.

Gloria: All right. Bye. Is that pizza I smell?

Lucy: It can't be. You know -- you know, it's -- it's almost springtime so I'm sure there's something out in the garden that's -- just blooming early.

Gloria: Oh, pizza flowers? That's a new one. Bye.

Lucy: Where are you?

Aaron: Someone here order a pizza?

Lucy: I was hoping you'd come over. I unlocked the garden door as soon as Rosanna and daddy left.

Aaron: Very good move. Hey, you hungry?

Lucy: Starving.

Aaron: Come and get it. Not like that. I want you to walk.

[Monitor beeping]

Carly: What's going on? What is that?! John!

John: Just take it easy --

Carly: What's going on?! John!

John: Take a deep breath. Your blood pressure's a little high. Try to relax. Try to relax now.

Carly: Fix it!

Craig: What did you say to her?! Rosanna?

John: Carly, Carly --

Carly: What?

John: Take a deep breath --

Carly: I can't.

John: Come on.

Carly: What is it?!

John: You're going to be just fine. Just try to relax. Try to relax.

Craig: What happened in there? What did you do?

Rosanna: Nothing! I said hello. That was it!

Craig: Well, it had to be something more than that.

Rosanna: Oh, thank you for the vote of confidence!

Craig: I'm not saying it's your fault. But she reacted to something -- I'd better go see what that is.

Rosanna: Oh, yes, please, by all means. Go see Carly. Go!

John: Carly's pressure was up. I ordered magnesium sulfate.

Dr. Schiller: That should bring it down in a hurry. You're going to be fine. Everything is under control.

Carly: The baby --

Dr. Schiller: The baby is fine.

Craig: I don't know. Carly had a problem. The doctors are --

Jack: I want you out of here. Now.

Craig: What?

Jack: Something tells me you're the problem, Craig.

Craig: Something?

Jack: You're always the problem, one way or another. Now, get out. Now.

Craig: Yeah. Sure, Jack. Always me, isn't it?

Jack: Hey. How you doing?

[Beeping stops]

Carly: Thank God somebody shut that thing off.

John: That's your -- that's your blood pressure monitor. You shut it off yourself.

Jack: Her pressure is going down?

John: Yeah, as we speak.

Jack: Nice work.

Carly: I don't think I did it alone, Jack. I think you helped.

Carly: If my blood pressure keeps spiking like that, what's gonna happen? Am I going to be all right?

Dr. Schiller: Everything's quieted down for the moment. But I would like to examine you, just to be safe.

John: Jack?

Jack: I'll be right outside.

Carly: So what -- this is -- something that I did?

Dr. Schiller: Did Dr. Dixon discuss pre-eclampsia with you yet?

Carly: No. Is that -- is that what I have? Did I do something to bring that on?

Dr. Schiller: Absolutely not. It just occurs in some women. The main symptom is high blood pressure, but as long as we keep that under control, the baby's gonna be fine.

Carly: Good. Thank God for that.

Dr. Schiller: But you are going to have to make some changes in your life.

Carly: Fine. I'll do anything. Anything you tell me to do.

John: We're going to observe Carly for a while. But from now on, her pregnancy is regarded as high risk.

Craig: Meaning what?

John: That means more monitoring. She stays off her feet. And most of all -- most importantly, no stress.

Craig: John, that's not going to be easy for her.

Jack: Still, the rest of us don't have to add to it.

Craig: Jack, I didn't have anything to do with this.

Jack: I want you to stay away from her. And you, too.

Craig: Jack, let me remind you. The greatest stress in Carly's life is coming from divorcing you. If you had called it off, she'd be back in Milltown.

Jack: Right. Slaving over designs for your company, Craig.

Craig: Doing something she loves.

Jack: Forget it, Craig. Those days are over.

Craig: What does that mean?

Jack: You heard John. She's high risk. She's not going anywhere near Monte Carlo until this baby's born.

Lucy: That must be pretty incredible pizza if it's gonna make me walk.

Aaron: The pizza is not going to make you walk, Lucy. You have to do that for yourself.

Lucy: I can't. I'll fall on my face.

Aaron: Okay. Okay. Let's try something else. I made you a CD.

Lucy: Why?

Aaron: So we can dance. What do you think?

Lucy: It's nice. Couldn't we just eat the pizza and listen to it?

Aaron: After we dance. Slowly.

Lucy: Aaron, you don't have to do this. I have a physical therapist.

Aaron: I don't want to be your physical therapist. I want to be the guy who loves you. Come on.

Lucy: I'll fall.

Aaron: You won't fall. Come on. I got you.

Aaron: How's that feel?

Lucy: Feels nice.

Aaron: Now move with me.

Katie: All right, the first rule in facing a jury is to look very conservative -- hair pulled back, sensible shoes, necklines up to here. Hello.

Chris: Hi.

Alison: Chris. Chris, how are you doing, dude? Do you want some chocolates?

Chris: All I want is a promise that you won't listen to this woman.

Katie: "This woman"?

Alison: How come?

Katie: Excuse me.

Alison: He was just kidding, Katie. Right? Where are you going?

Katie: I'm going for a walk. I'll see you in a bit.

Alison: That was cold. Why are you acting like that?

Chris: Would you mind getting back to your bed? I want to take your vitals.

Alison: She was only trying to help.

Chris: Yeah, I've heard that one before.

Alison: What do you mean?

Chris: Katie Peretti is nothing but trouble. The worst thing you could do is taking her advice about anything.

Alison: First of all, Chris, she's my friend. And second of all, you just dissed the wrong person. 'Cause Katie's name is Frasier, not Peretti.

Chris: Her maiden name is Peretti.

Alison: So you knew her a long time ago?

Chris: I once got arrested because of her.

Alison: You were locked up? Why didn't you tell me?

Chris: It's not a pleasant memory.

Alison: Yeah, but -- but if you've been locked up, then you understand what I'm going through. That's why you're taking my pulse and everything? You know that there's nothing wrong with me, but you have a plan to spring me out of here.

Dusty: Yeah, your marriage announcement is a problem, but not for me. For my broker.

Paul: Why's that?

Dusty: Because I'm supposed to meet him right now. I'm standing him up, and he's all bent out of shape.

Paul: Listen, if it's important, man --

Dusty: It is not. This day is important to me. There is no way I'm not sharing it with you.

Paul: Good. You know, for a second there, you had me thinking my getting married was gonna be an issue for you.

Dusty: No, only envy. You found one woman that you want to spend the rest of your life with.

Paul: I know, man. I can't believe it. But she's the one. I'm a better person with her in my life.

Dusty: I never thought I'd hear you say it.

Paul: I've never been this happy.

Lily: Well, I know you have your own ideas about your wedding, but I will help out any way that I can.

Rose: Oh, thank you. I'll need it. You wouldn't believe that I'd be getting proposed to in front of a room full of people like this.

Lily: It wasn't a problem having Dusty here, was it?

Rose: Eh, Dusty and I buried the hatchet. I wouldn't have invited him here. He walked in, so of course he's welcome.

Paul: You know where this guy was?

Dusty: No!

Paul: Outside calling bachelors anonymous.

Dusty: This is not true! I have a good attitude toward marriage. It's good for everyone else.

Paul: Okay, everybody, I have an announcement to make, and I promise this will be my last speech of the day.

Lucinda: Of the next three minutes.

Paul: Maybe, maybe. But I want to offer a toast to my beautiful future wife, my future family and my old friend Dusty, my future best man.

Dusty: Oh, I don't know. I may be busy that day.

Holden: They haven't even set a date yet.

Dusty: I'll think of something. But seriously, it's a beautiful offer. Thank you. To Paul and Rose.

All: To Paul and Rose.

Dusty: Can I talk to you for a second?

Paul: Sure. Yeah, what's up?

Dusty: You know, I feel honored that you want me to stand up for you on your wedding day. But I'm just feeling like maybe you should choose someone else.

Paul: Why would I do that?

Dusty: 'Cause having me around just might be a detriment to you.

Paul: Why?

Dusty: Well, because you're about to take your vows. You know, you're going to be tied down. You're going to be saving every penny. You're gonna be, you know, checking off your "honey, do" list. I'm gonna be out there fancy-free and single, picking up girls.

Paul: Yeah, I got the idea, but why would any of that bother me?

Dusty: It might, it might. Trust me. Especially when you get closer to the big day.

Paul: Then I will deal with it. But there is no way I'm letting you get out of this. Hmm?

Dusty: Yes. You know what? Forget everything I said. You're right. I don't know what I'm thinking.

Paul: Okay, all right. Thanks, man. You have no idea how much this marriage means to me.

Dusty: I can see that. It means a lot to me, too.

Chris: I'm not going to spring you out of anywhere. I'm sorry you're in trouble, but it's not my place to try and fix it.

Alison: I know you're saying that just in case someone walks in. Do you have a piece of paper? Maybe you can write down what you have in mind.

Chris: You're in dreamland, Alison. I'm not helping you escape.

Alison: But you've been helping me all along. First I couldn't figure out why, but now I understand. Chris, you and I are the same kind of people.

Chris: Look, be quiet and listen to me. I made a big mistake by getting personally involved with Will's case and then yours. I can't and I won't do it again.

Alison: Well, then why did you let me stay here even though you knew I wasn't sick?

Chris: Because your mother's a member of the staff, and she was terrified about you being in jail.

Alison: Okay. Okay, if you have no intention of busting me out, can't you at least find a way to keep me here longer?

Chris: How would I do that?

Alison: Find some mysterious disease. And the tests could take days.

Chris: Yeah, and I'd be risking my career. Is that what you want?

Alison: Chris, I want you to be my friend. Please find something wrong with me.

Craig: This is Carly's career, Jack. And I thought you were deleting her from your life.

Jack: I never said I didn't care about her.

Craig: Then why don't you let her make her own decisions?

Jack: Whatever Carly decides, that's fine with me. But I won't let you railroad her into some killer work schedule for Monte Carlo. It's not gonna happen.

[Craig chuckles]

Jack: John, is there some special equipment Carly's gonna need? I'd like to start putting that together, if I may.

Rosanna: Do you mind if I ask why are you going to move her back in with you?

Jack: We'll find a neutral place, Rosanna. But I'm gonna be there for her, if she needs me.

John: Jack, why don't you go on down to my office? I got some literature you'd like to read.

Jack: Okay.

Emma: Rosanna. Hey.

Rosanna: Emma. Ah, I don't know how you do it. Whenever I need a friend, you're always here.

Emma: Jack called and asked me to come down. He told me that Carly had been admitted.

Rosanna: Yes.

Emma: Is the baby out of danger?

Rosanna: I think so. She has this condition. It's called pre-eclampsia.

Emma: I know all about that. How is her blood pressure?

Rosanna: I think it's under control.

Emma: Thank goodness. You know, miss, you have a very big heart. I am very, very proud of you for being here.

Rosanna: Emma, you always know the right thing to say.

Jack: There she is. Thank you so much --

Emma: Hugs and hugs.

Jack: -- For coming. Carly's doing better. The baby's doing fine.

Emma: I heard. I heard. And how are you, my sweetheart?

Jack: I need a favor. Now, if you can't do it, I totally understand, but it would solve a lot of problems if you could.

Emma: For you, anything. What is it?

Jack: I want Carly to move in with you until the baby's born.

Rose: Can I have your attention? The groom is not the only person who gets to make an announcement.

Lucinda: They're already competing.

Rose: There are many people in my life that I could ask to be my matron of honor -- Mitzi and Carly, Emily. I love 'em all, but I would really like you, if you would say yes, my sister, Lily, to be my matron of honor.

Lily: I would love to. Yes.

Rose: Besides, you look so much like me, if I decided not to show up, she could stand in for me at the ceremony.

Paul: Hey.

Rose: I'm just kidding.

Lily: Thank you, but I'm very happy with the husband that I have.

Lucinda: I'm very glad to hear that, darling. I've got to get going. I've got a meeting with my acquisitions team.

Lily: I'm glad you could make it. It's never a party without you, mom.

Lucinda: Well, of course not! And, darling, don't we want to get a picture of this for posterity?

Holden: She's right. Where's the camera?

Lily: Uh, I'll get the one that you gave us for Christmas.

Holden: Okay. Let me just go check on Natalie, first.

Lucinda: Oh, I want to go, too. Natalie may ask for me.

Lily: Hey, how are you with cameras?

Paul: Not bad, why?

Lily: 'Cause my mom gave us one for Christmas, a digital camera. I have no idea how to use it.

Paul: I'll take a look at it. You okay?

Rose: I'll manage. Take that with you.

Dusty: So, I hope you're all right with all this.

Rose: What? Getting married? I'll let you know.

Dusty: No, Paul asking me to be his best man. I saw your face when he asked me, and you weren't exactly spinning cartwheels.

Rose: Well, maybe you should stop looking at me so much.

Dusty: Okay. I'm really happy for you guys. You're a beautiful couple.

Rose: We'll do in a pinch. I feel like, wow, you know, I can't wait to get on with the rest of my life.

Dusty: Yeah. It'll probably be one of those long engagements, though, huh?

Rose: Why's that?

Dusty: Oh, you and Paul have had your ups and downs. You haven't been back together that long. And correct me if I'm wrong -- I'm no expert -- but people like yourself should take it slow, right? I mean, just in case you might be making a mistake.

Lucinda: Well, Natalie is still asleep. I mean, she is an angel, a veritable angel. I look at that sleeping face, and it's the prettiest thing I've ever seen.

Rose: Isn't it, though? It's like you see it on a box of baby food or something.

Lucinda: Or a painting.

Rose: Yeah.

Lucinda: And don't you forget in the euphoria and ecstasy of your engagement that you have a meeting, all right, with my favorite bankers to pitch the beauty salon.

Rose: I'll be there. I'll be there. You know, you don't have to call in any favors for me just 'cause you know me.

Lucinda: Oh, honey, they're bankers. They don't give anyone favors.

Rose: But you're on my side, and I appreciate that. I mean, there's someone on the other side of the family who's probably praying I fall flat on my face, you know.

Lucinda: Oh, well, Barbara. What else can you expect?

Rose: Mother-in-law from hell.

Lily: Hey, everybody, get together. Come on. Picture. Get close. Come on. Get in there. Dusty, I'm losing you. Get in.

Rose: Squeeze in. There.

Lily: Okay, smile. Great.

Dusty: Listen, my broker has no patience. I gotta run.

Paul: All right, man. All right. Thanks for everything.

Dusty: Congratulations.

Paul: All right, I'll call you.

Rose: I'm walking you out. Yeah.

Paul: Now, you see that? I told you Rose and Dusty would turn out to be friends.

Rose: So give it to me straight. Come on. How do you really feel about Paul and me getting married?

Jack: Now, I'm not suggesting that you turn your life upside down for Carly. She doesn't need a nurse. But what she does need is peace and quiet, and you got to admit, the farm is the best place for that.

Emma: Yes, yes, it is. Oh, how can I say no to you?

[Jack sighs]

Jack: You sure about that?

Emma: Yes, yes. You tell her to call me when she's ready, and I'll have her room made up. I'll teach her how to crochet baby booties. Okay?

Jack: Thanks. I'm gonna start working on Carly.

Emma: Well, I hope this is not going to be a problem for you.

Rosanna: Oh, no. Why should it?

Emma: Well, I don't know. The farm is a very special place for you.

Rosanna: Yes, but, you know, Carly isn't well, and she needs all the rest she can get. So of course she should stay with you.

Emma: Well, good. But it doesn't mean you're not gonna come out, right? You're gonna still come see me?

Rosanna: Of course I am.

Emma: Promise?

Rosanna: Yes, I promise.

Emma: Okay, all right. All right. I'm gonna go get some coffee. Can I bring you some?

Rosanna: Oh, that'd be lovely. Thank you.

Craig: John! John, is -- a quick word with you?

John: You do quick words? I didn't realize that.

Craig: Yes. Is Carly going to be able to walk? I mean, not great distances, but --

John: Of course she can walk.

Craig: Yeah? Well, what about other activities like cooking and driving and sewing?

John: Listen to me. Right now, right now, it is very important that she avoid the stress of being a big-time designer, okay? Is that clear enough for you?

Craig: Crystal. Yeah.

John: You lose a couple of bucks along the way, those are the breaks, huh?

Craig: Thank you, John.

Chris: I am your friend, Alison. But I'm not going to lie about you being sick.

Alison: You did once.

Chris: Yeah, don't make me regret it.

Alison: Okay, never mind. You're not mad at me, are you?

Chris: I'm over it.

Alison: Great. Because I have enough people mad at me, lately.

Katie: All right, either that hallway is getting a lot longer or I'm getting a lot weaker.

Chris: Maybe you should get off your feet.

Katie: Well, it looks like I have no choice.

Alison: Did you even take the time to find out why she's here? She stopped eating because her husband walked out on her and took all their money. I mean, she was totally in love with him, Chris, and then he just -- he just left. He was just gone.

Chris: I had no idea. That's really a shame.

Alison: Well, I think I'll go for a walk myself. Might as well, while I'm still a free woman.

Alison: I'm just cruising the gift shop. There's no reason for you to tag along.

Guard: I'm sorry, Ms. Stewart, but I have to accompany you.

Alison: Okay, fine, well, don't crowd me. I don't want anyone knowing we're together.

Chris: I'd like to apologize. I had no right to be so rude.

Katie: It's okay.

Chris: I'm only an intern, but if there's anything I can do --

Katie: Thanks.

Chris: I'm sorry about what happened with your husband, Katie. I hope you hear from him soon.

Katie: I will. I haven't lost faith.

Lily: Oh, you found our wedding album.

Paul: Do you mind?

Lily: No. Not at all. Look at us. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into.

Paul: Is that supposed to be some sort of warning?

Lily: No. You two don't need a warning. Just expect the unexpected, and you'll be fine. Look at that. The two of us there with our moms.

Paul: Nice picture.

Lily: Lucinda and Emma, I mean, they were not cut from the same cloth, but it was very important that they were there for us. I know you chose to leave Barbara out of this party today, but have you thought at all about inviting her to the wedding?

Paul: I don't want her there.

Lily: Because of Rose?

Paul: Rose calls my mother "a missile looking for a target." I happen to agree with that.

Rose: Ha, one minute you're saying how happy you are that Paul and me are getting married. The next second you're saying, oh, maybe we're making a mistake. So which is it, you know? You can't have it both ways.

Dusty: I'm sorry.

Rose: I'm really, really getting tired of hearing you say that.

Dusty: Oh, is this about the long engagement thing? I didn't say that to hurt your feelings.

Rose: No? Then why did you say it?

[Dusty sighs]

Dusty: 'Cause marriage is a topic that I can't stand talking about. I've been avoiding it my whole life. When I talk about it, it makes the back of my hand itch.

Rose: So is, like, Paul the first person in your life that's getting married?

Dusty: No. I've had plenty of friends who have been married for years.

Rose: Mm. So then you know what it's all about. I mean, Dusty, these "problems" that you're having with marriage, maybe it's about something else.

Dusty: Like what?

Rose: I don't know. Why don't you tell me?

Paul: My mother refuses to accept Rose as the woman I love. She forced me to choose. I picked Rose.

Lily: I know your mother can be unreasonable. But cutting her off, I don't know if that's the solution.

Paul: It could be. I'm willing to find out.

Lily: She's your mother. She's your mother. She's gonna be the grandmother to all those beautiful kids that you and Rose are going to have. Look, I know. You feel like you have to choose one or the other. And I was there when Lucinda was dead set against Holden. I thought, "oh, I'm gonna have to choose between these two people." But we found a middle ground somehow. And I think you should think about doing the same thing.

Paul: The middle doesn't work for me, Lily. I made my choice. I will live with it.

Dusty: Well, to tell you the truth, I just always thought that Paul and I would be bachelors forever.

Rose: He's your friend, and he's happy. You should be happy for him.

Dusty: I am. That's part of the problem.

Rose: "Part of the problem"? I don't want part of the problem. I want to hear the whole problem, the whole shebang. Come on.

Dusty: Okay. Given how I feel about marriage, I'm thinking I just might not be the best man. I'm thinking I should ask him to choose someone else.

Rose: You know what? I don't want to hear this excuse, all right? Paul needs a best man in every sense of the word. You will not disappoint him. You need to be there for him.

Dusty: You're right. I'll give it a shot.

Rose: Did anyone ever tell you you're a lot of work?

Dusty: Every day.

Paul: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. You got something you want to tell me?

Dusty: Yes, I do. You've got a fantastic woman, and don't you ever take her for granted.

Paul: Thank you. I won't. Thought you had an appointment?

Dusty: I'm leaving. You guys look amazing. Like right off a wedding cake.

Paul: Nice day.

Rose: One of the best days of my life.

Alison: Hi.

Katie: Hey.

Alison: Did Chris stop and talk to you when I left?

Katie: Yeah. How did you know that?

Alison: He's just that kind of guy. So how'd it go?

Katie: Good. He apologized for being so rude. I accepted. And now we can go back to pretending we don't know each other.

Alison: Perfect. I'll give you three guesses.

Katie: Um, more chocolate?

Alison: Nope.

Katie: Makeup?

Alison: No, no, no, no, no.

Katie: I don't know.

Alison: They're presents. For you, Katie.

Katie: For me? What's the occasion?

Alison: I don't know. I just thought that they'd cheer you up. A bunny. And her eyes light up.

Katie: Oh, my gosh! He's so cute. Thank you. Hello.

Alison: And slippers.

Katie: Oh, my gosh. How did you know?

Alison: Know what?

Katie: Mine just wore out. Thank you so much, Alison. This is like Christmas morning. You are so sweet.

Alison: Well, I knew you missed your bunny, so I thought this stuff would help.

Katie: Thanks. It does.

Alison: So are you still feeling wiped out from the walk?

Katie: No, I've recovered.

Alison: Well, good. So can you tell me more about how to get a jury on my side?

Katie: Oh, yes, of course. Okay, the thing you need –

Susan: Is that the girl?

Clerk: Yes. And there's the merchandise.

Susan: Thank you, Melissa. I'll take it from here. I thought you were short of breath. I thought you had no appetite.

Alison: I am. I don't.

Susan: Well then, how do you explain this little shopping spree to the gift shop?! And where's that bar of Belgian chocolate that you also charged to me?

Katie: Oh, well, you didn't tell me about that.

Alison: I was feeling better. Is that such a crime?

Susan: This little party that you've been throwing yourself is over. We are not waiting until tomorrow to take you home! I'm checking you out of the hospital today!

Carly: It's out of the question, Jack. There's no way I am moving in with Emma.

Jack: It's beautiful there. Why not?

Carly: Because I don't want to be passed around from house to house like some enormous white elephant that nobody wants.

Jack: Oh, that's hardly what's going on.

Carly: I'm gonna get my own place. I know it'll take some effort, but I -- I can do it.

Jack: Did Dr. Schiller explain your condition?

Carly: Yeah, I have pre-eclampsia, and I have to make sure that it doesn't develop into the full-blown version. I will be a model patient. I will watch myself very closely. I will lower my salt intake. I'll take lots of naps. I will carry this baby to term.

Jack: Yes, and that means monitoring your blood pressure four times a day.

Carly: I know.

Jack: Restricted diet, supplements, blood samples to make sure you're not getting worse.

Carly: None of that's gonna be a problem.

Jack: And no stress. That's the most important thing, Carly. Until this baby is here, you've got to live a life that's simple, easy and that is not gonna raise your blood pressure.

Carly: Did you not hear what I said? Because that is exactly the life that I intend to lead -- healthy and relaxed. When did Emma say I could move in?

Jack: As soon as you're ready.

Carly: I feel like I'm being put out to pasture.

Jack: Oh, it's for a good cause. And it's not forever.

Carly: Will you come out there to visit me?

Jack: I never thought you'd ask. I better go tell Emma she's gonna have a guest. Yes. Carly's all for moving out to the farm. Thank you so much. Good.

Rosanna: Excuse me.

Craig: No, no, Carly's fine. It did have to do with the pregnancy, but the doctors have everything under control.

Lucy: That's great, daddy. I could tell you were really worried.

Craig: Is that our radio? I can barely hear you.

Lucy: Yeah. It's a new station. Very cool.

Craig: Well, enjoy yourself. Rosanna and I are coming home soon.

Lucy: No hurry. Everything's under control here.

Craig: All right, sweetums. I love you. Bye. You all right?

Rosanna: Not really.

Craig: I was nervous about Carly and her baby.

Rosanna: It's all right. I know you love me.

Craig: Yes, I do. More every day.

Rosanna: Yeah.

Craig: What?

Rosanna: When Carly gets out of the hospital, she's going to be staying at Emma's.

Craig: She what?

Rosanna: She needs rest. Jack thought it was the best place.

Craig: Jack has nothing to do with this. What Carly needs is to work, and if she's staying with Emma and the Snyder's, she won't get anything done out there.

Rosanna: Yes, I agree, so I think we should probably find another designer. Don't you?

Craig: Another designer? No.

Rosanna: Well, I know it's a little difficult, but I'm not gonna have her risking her pregnancy over Monte Carlo. So you find another designer. Or I'll do it for you.

Susan: This hospital, Chris Hughes, the Police Department, the District Attorney -- excuse me -- everybody has gone out of their way to be nice to you! And I am not letting you take advantage of them, not this time!

[Heavy breathing]

Alison: I'm not ready, mom. I need to stay here another day!

Susan: Oh, don't run that panic attack routine on me. I've seen that act.

Alison: It's not an act.

Susan: Get dressed, Alison, unless you want to leave the hospital in your PJs.

Alison: Please. Mom, just -- just let me stay one more day.

Susan: I am gonna be back here in ten minutes. Just get dressed, get packed and get ready to roll.

Alison: I can't do this. You see what she's like? Being with my mom will be worse than prison.

Katie: Alison, you're exaggerating a little bit, okay? I mean, it looks like you don't have a choice.

Alison: Oh, no? Watch me.

[Alison sighs] oops.

Jack: Carly knows she needs to stay calm. She's not gonna be pushed into a fight with Rosanna.

Emma: Well, let's hope not. And from what I hear, though, you know, I hear Rosanna's not the only one who had harsh words with Carly.

Jack: Guilty as charged, but she's not gonna get any stress coming from my direction. I promise you that. The stakes are too high.

Craig: I don't mean to pressure you here, but I do need an honest answer.

Carly: It'll be tough, but I'll do my best.

Craig: I can figure out a way for you to finish out the fall line out at the Snyder's, but if you don't think you're up to it, if you'd rather I hired another designer, I will do that, okay? But this is your choice. You have to make that now.

Paul: I want to catch Will so he hears about this from me.

Rose: Good.

Paul: And, Lily, thank you for a great party.

Lily: Oh, you're welcome. I cannot wait until we're officially family.

Paul: Me, neither.

Rose: Me, neither. Now, be careful.

Paul: But not too careful, right?

Rose: That's right. He's catching on.

Paul: I'll see you later.

Rose: Okay. Bye.

Paul: Bye.

Rose: Ooh! What a day, you know? Everything just got all of the sudden simple.

Lily: What do you mean?

Rose: Oh, I've got my man, right? My business is just about on track. And even that Dusty Donovan seems to be on the right page.

Lily: Yes, it has been quite a -- quite a day. But, you know, there is a way for you to make it better.

Rose: How's that?

Lily: Rethink your attitude about Paul's mother.

Dusty: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's tough getting out of there.
