Ben: I think I know who to call.

Jessica: If you cannot afford an attorney, the court will appoint one to you free of charge prior to questioning.

Ben: Last I checked, I could afford it.

Bailiff: Dr. Harris --

Ben: I understand my rights, bailiff. Thank you.

Jessica: Uh, I'll come down and help you with the paperwork. Listen, Ben, but thank you, really. Sweetheart, I need to go downstairs and file some papers for Ben.

Bonnie: I don't understand you.

Jessica: What do you mean?

Bonnie: I mean, it makes me sick to my stomach that Ben is going to jail and Marshall is going free.

Jessica: Believe me, Bonnie, I know exactly how you feel. I know it's hard to accept, but --

Bonnie: Then why are you accepting it?

Jessica: Bonnie, my reasons for pursuing this conviction, I just wanted Marshall to admit what he'd done to me.

Bonnie: He didn't admit a damn thing, mom.

Jessica: Yes, he did. Yes, he did, yesterday. After you left, Marshall found me in the courtroom. And you heard me tell him that he was afraid to take the stand. Well, I guess I pushed some kind of button or something, because he plopped himself down in the witness stand and allowed me to question him.

Jessica: And he said it to my face. He admitted that he raped me.

Barbara: I was kidnapped, chloroformed, held captive in a cabin in the woods. And that man is responsible. Craig Montgomery!

Paul: Mom, are you saying that you saw Craig?

Barbara: I know it was him. I knew it was him, because he knew my designs were brilliant, and he wanted to stop me, because he wanted Carly to win out. So he had me kidnapped.

Craig: Barbara, I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to leave. You're not wanted here.

Rosanna: Do you know anything about this?

Carly: No.

Rosanna: Don't lie to me.

Carly: No. No, I swear to you. I have no idea what she's talking about.

Craig: Jack, this is my house, my wedding. You here as a cop or a guest?

Jack: I need answers, Craig.

Paul: All right, mom, you made your point. Let's get you to --

Barbara: Not until Craig has handcuffs on his wrists.

Craig: You remember Hal's wedding? Barbara careening around in the backyard? Nothing but trouble.

Barbara: And you never change.

Craig: Barbara, have I been anywhere near you? No, I've been planning a wedding with my wife.

Barbara: Oh, I'm sure you have an alibi, Craig. But it doesn't matter, because you had help, co-conspirators, and at least two of them were women. Look familiar, ladies? I snatched this off the wrist of one of my captors. Now, which of you darlings wants to claim it?

Bonnie: Why would he admit he raped you?

Jessica: I'm sure that wasn't his intention. I think he expected to persuade me that I was wrong, that it was no different from what we had done before. But I took him through it, moment by moment. And he was forced to see it with new eyes. And he was -- he was surprised. He didn't realize --

Bonnie: Are you serious? Come on, mom!

Jessica: Bonnie, I'm not denying what he did. I'm just saying that he has been denying it to himself.

Bonnie: So this was, like, what? His moment of truth?

Jessica: Yes, I think it was.

Bonnie: Then why did he show up here this morning still claiming he's innocent?

Jessica: Because he is not prepared to go public.

Bonnie: And you're supposed to accept that? Can't you see here, mom, nothing has changed? You still have to prosecute him. And now, with his confession --

Jessica: It's still my word against his.

Bonnie: Have you spoken with Margo or Evelyn? Anyone?

Jessica: Yes, I talked to Margo, and I'm telling you.

Bonnie: And that's it? That's it? Marshall has his little emotional moment with you, and he gets to go off scott-free?

Jessica: Sweetheart, it wasn't like that.

Bonnie: Yeah, tell it to the next woman he rapes.

Jessica: Bonnie.

Bonnie: Or maybe that doesn't really bother you. You know, the fact that he's out there, he can do it again to someone.

Jessica: Of course it bothers me. But we did the best we could -- you, me, Ben, Margo, Evelyn. And we didn't achieve everything, but it was more than I expected. And, Bonnie, that's how life is. You set a goal, you do your best.

Bonnie: You want to give up? Fine. You give up. But I'm not done, not by a long shot.

Jessica: Bonnie --

Bonnie: He raped you, mom. And he has to pay for that.

Marshall: Jessica?

Jessica: What are you still doing here?

Marshall: Just waiting on the commotion to die down so I could congratulate you.

Jessica: Congratulate me?

Marshall: Now the world will never hear a jury say "not guilty." And I've got to hand it to Ben, he gave quite a performance.

Jessica: That wasn't a performance. That was straight from his heart. Now, if you'll excuse me --

Marshall: I came here today to change my plea.

Jessica: So why didn't you?

Marshall: Because I knew it wouldn't make any difference. I could spend ten years in jail, and you still wouldn't forgive me. So what was the point?

Barbara: Rose? Is this yours? No, a little too refined for you, I think.

Rose: Oh, refined? Oh, you're the picture of refinement, crashing a wedding like this.

Barbara: How about you Carly? No, I think not. Timing isn't your strong suit.

Carly: Ah -- don't touch me.

Barbara: That leaves Emily.

Hal: Can I see this, Barbara?

Barbara: They were feeding me like a dog, Hal. They were pushing food at me through a hole in the door. I grabbed this off of one of their wrists.

Hal: Did you draw blood?

Barbara: I was kidnapped. You got to believe me. Jack, tell him.

Hal: Excuse me.

Barbara: Jack, make him believe me.

Jack: That's not why we're here, Barbara.

Rosanna: Really? Why are you here, Jack? This is hardly the time or place for a serious investigation.

Barbara: I'm sorry, Rosanna. I really am. None of this is directed at you.

Rosanna: Nevertheless, this is my wedding. Or it was until you decided to turn it into a free-for-all.

Barbara: But this is Craig's fault. You have to understand that. He knew that I was about to turn in my designs to you, and Carly knew it, too. So they had to get rid of me.

Carly: Is that what you think, Jack? You think I was so afraid of this -- of this has-been that I arranged to have her kidnapped?

Jack: I'm just trying to nail down the circumstances surrounding Barbara's abduction.

Barbara: That's right. I was abducted.

Rosanna: And you've obviously been through a horrible ordeal. So, I'll make this short. Regardless of the circumstances, you did fail to turn in your designs as promised, Barbara.

Barbara: Because I couldn't.

Rosanna: So we decided to go in a different direction.

Barbara: What are you talking about?

Rosanna: We are using Carly's designs.

Barbara: What?

Rosanna: I will have a messenger drop off a check for you at the Lakeview.

Barbara: Wait a second. Wait a second. She turned in designs? Do you hear that, Jack? That's the proof! That's the proof! Arrest them!

Emily: Hey.

Hal: Hey.

Emily: Déjà vu all over again, huh?

Hal: Yeah, well, Barbara does have a way of turning a happy occasion on its ear.

Emily: Yeah. But we survived, right?

Hal: I looked at the watch. It looked an awful lot like yours. Did you have something to do with this?

Emily: With what?

Hal: Barbara's abduction.

Emily: Oh.

[Emily laughs] Oh, I'm sorry. I thought -- I thought you were talking about the watch.

Hal: Your watch.

[Hal sighs] I'm sorry. The cop in me, I saw the watch --

Emily: Don't say another word, okay? You're just lucky I got a thing for cops.

Barbara: You have been deceived, Rosanna. They let you think that I had missed my deadline.

Rosanna: This is my last word on the subject, Barbara. I like Carly's designs, and I'm going to go with them. So, if you would please be so kind as to show yourself the door.

Craig: Jack?

Jack: Well, this is the story, Craig. We found Barbara in a cabin in the woods. The windows and doors had all been boarded up. And right now, you're the lead suspect. So, if you want to dance at your own wedding, you'll answer some questions. Otherwise, you're coming with me.

Bonnie: Can I talk to you?

Isaac: Sure. Are you okay? I heard the whole story on the news.

Bonnie: How could I possibly be okay?

Isaac: Well, you can look at it like this -- with Ben refusing to testify, at least they can't use him to hammer your mother. And a mistrial's better than an acquittal.

Bonnie: He raped her.

Isaac: And there's no way in hell he was gonna let himself get put away for it, and you know it.

Bonnie: Yeah, well, all a mistrial means is that mistakes were made. He can be retried.

Isaac: And if your mother were willing to do that, you wouldn't be standing here with a sad face on. If she can let it go, I think it's time that you let it go, as well.

Bonnie: I need your help.

Isaac: Okay. Whatever you need. You want to get away from this thing? You want to go to an island? Whatever you need.

Bonnie: I need for you to help me get Marshall on tape admitting to this rape.

Jessica: That's why you confessed to me? Because you thought I'd forgive you?

Marshall: Please. And if I marched into Evelyn's office right now and confessed -- be honest -- would you forgive me?

Jessica: Don't make me your judge and jury, Marshall. There's a bigger principle at stake here and you, of all people, should know that.

Marshall: Love, Jessica. That's what's at stake.

Jessica: First you rape me, and then you spit on the laws that are designed to protect me? The laws you have sworn to uphold, Marshall? You are so lost.

Marshall: Okay, so -- so, if I do confess, you might respect me again, but that's it?

Jessica: Look, I am not going to play quid pro quo with you. You do what you think is right. Marshall, stay out of my way.

Marshall: Jessica, when I want something, and when I know is right, it's very difficult to let go.

Jessica: Stay away from me.

Marshall: I don't know if I can do that.

Jessica: Well, then maybe I'll just have to talk to the police.

Craig: Jack, if you want to bring me downtown, you're going to have to charge me and cuff me and drag me out of here.

Barbara: A sight I live to see.

John: Barbara?

Barbara: John, you have no idea what I've been through.

John: I can imagine.

Margo: Jack, is this really necessary?

Jack: A crime was committed, Margo.

Margo: Yeah, but you're not going to solve it tonight. Not with Barbara tearing up the place. So, why don't you get her outta here? Just take her downtown and get her statement, and you can talk to Craig tomorrow.

Jack: Are you telling me how to run my case?

Margo: No. I'm asking you to lay off -- for me. Come on, you're not going to get what you need here tonight. Jack, please, come on. He's my brother. It's his wedding night. That should count for something, huh?

Barbara: I was drugged, John.

John: So, you're thinking that by barging in here you're going to help your case?

Barbara: You don't believe me?

John: Of course I do. But I know you. And I also know Craig. But to some of the others, I think you look deranged.

Barbara: I was in an enforced environment. I was barricaded in a cabin, John.

John: Right, right. So, perhaps you're not thinking too clearly. I think you should go home, get yourself cleaned up a little bit. Think over what has happened to you, write it all down on a piece of paper. We'll give it to Jack. Let him take care of Craig in the morning.

Jack: I want you down at the station house 10:00 a.m. tomorrow to answer questions.

Craig: Happy to, Jack. Not that I have anything to offer.

Jack: I apologize for disrupting the festivities.

Rosanna: Just get Barbara out of here.

Craig: Thank you, Jack.

Jack: Oh, any time, Craig.

John: Okay, the first priority should be taking care of yourself.

Jack: We're gonna pick this up tomorrow morning, okay?

John: Good, good, good. I'll call you later.

Barbara: Thank you, John.

Jack: Come on, let's go.

Barbara: No, wait. I -- I want to have just a minute with Hal.

Jack: Barbara --

Barbara: No, I promise I'm not gonna make a scene. I'm not.

Jack: This isn't the right time.

Barbara: I want to talk about Will, okay? Just a second.

Carly: So, did you get what you came for, Jack? You humiliate me, you ruin this wedding, you upset Rosanna.

Jack: A crime was committed.

Carly: Yeah, and I had nothing to do with it. Was I designing? Yes, I was designing, Jack. That's my job. It's my company. But I did not have anything to do with what happened to Barbara. Please tell me you believe me.

Jack: Of course I believe you, Carly. Don't I always?

Barbara: Hal, I don't trust Jack. He has no objectivity when it comes to Carly.

Hal: And I have objectivity when it comes to you?

Barbara: Yes. Unfortunately you do. Please, I -- I don't want to make the same mistakes again. And I'm willing to let the police handle this, if you promise me that you will oversee the investigation.

Hal: All right. Fair enough.

Jack: Come on, Barbara. Let's go.

Barbara: Wait. Tell Will that mommy's okay.

Hal: I'll have him call you when he gets home from school tomorrow.

Barbara: Thank you.

Rose: I don't get this. She just flies off on her broomstick? She ruined Rosanna's wedding.

Paul: She was kidnapped, Rose.

Rose: I was kidnapped, really kidnapped. I was almost killed.

Paul: Are we ever gonna get past this?

Rose: I'm past it. You're the one trying to figure out who did it to her.

Paul: Yeah, you're right.

Rose: No, no, no. Wait, wait, wait. I'm sorry. It's just, on my nerves, seeing her coming here like this and making a scene.

Paul: Well, I don't like it much either, but I have to make sure she gets home.

Rose: You gotta do what you gotta do.

Paul: You'll be all okay?

Rose: Yeah.

Paul: You sure? Hey, Dusty, can you make sure Rose gets home? I've gotta -- I gotta check on my mom.

Dusty: Yeah, of course I will.

Paul: Thank you. I'll call you.

Dusty: Let me just go find Molly. I'll tell her we're a threesome.

Rose: Oh, sure. If it's a problem then I'll just --

Dusty: It's not a problem, no. She's mad at me anyway. It's gonna warm up the car.

Craig: Ladies and gentlemen, can I have your attention, please? My friends, I believe that concludes our performance of "Oakdale Boulevard." But the day is still young. And there is champagne and food and music. And I haven't even danced with my daughter yet. Lucy?

Rosanna: Lucy, I need to talk to your father alone, if you don't mind. Could you excuse us a moment?

Lucy: Of course.

Rosanna: Thank you.

Aaron: Now what?

Lucy: I think she's just softening him up.

Aaron: She's gonna tell him?

Lucy: No, she's just gonna remind him how great it is that I'm walking and to count his blessings.

Aaron: And to not have your boyfriend killed.

Rosanna: All right, Montgomery, let's have it.

Craig: Right here with the daffodils?

Rosanna: What did you do to Barbara? And who helped you?

Bonnie: We get Marshall admitting to this rape on tape, and he'll have to change his plea.

Isaac: For a smart woman, you're a slow learner.

Bonnie: Look, Isaac, I know it backfired last time, but if you would just --

Isaac: Number one -- illegal. Number two -- inadmissible. And number three -- unlikely.

Bonnie: He admitted to my mother last night that he raped her.

Isaac: Says who?

Bonnie: My mother.

Isaac: So he admits he raped her? And then shows up to crucify my brother today? I don't think so.

Bonnie: Are you saying she's lying?

Isaac: I'm saying that I'm outta the "catch Marshall on tape" business.

Bonnie: You said you'd be there for me. You said you'd help me if I needed you.

Isaac: This isn't you needing me, Bonnie. This is you on a crusade.

Bonnie: So you're not gonna help me?

Isaac: I'm not gonna help you go after Marshall Travers, no. And you can stand there and you can cry all you want, I'm not gonna change my mind on this.

Bonnie: Damnit, Isaac, he is going to get away with this!

Isaac: Not in the long run, never in the long run.

Bonnie: Well, then that is not good enough for me. It is completely unacceptable.

Isaac: Listen to me. Marshall Travers is a cold and calculating man. He thinks he's bigger and better than any trouble he can run up against. Well, he's wrong. But until he realizes that, he's dangerous.

Bonnie: I am not afraid of him.

Isaac: Then you're a fool. His daughter is dead, your mother's lost her career, her privacy, her peace of mind, my brother has been arrested. Anybody who goes up next to Marshall Travers loses. And you're not listening to a word that's coming out of my mouth.

Bonnie: What? It could work. It could work.

Molly: Yeah, you said that you'd send a cab 20 minutes ago. All right. Fine, whatever.

Dusty: Why'd you call a cab?

Molly: I want to go home.

Dusty: I'll take you home. Let's go.

Molly: That's not what you said when I asked you to.

Dusty: Don't play games. I asked you if Mike was going to be here. You said no. I have no interest in making this guy jealous.

Molly: I said, "I couldn't imagine why Rosanna would invite him." That's what I said. I didn't realize you needed a signed affidavit.

Dusty: What do you want to do? You let me know when you figure it out.

Craig: If Barbara had any proof I had done anything, she would have thrown it in my face. She has nothing.

Rosanna: That's not what I asked.

Craig: Rosanna, she has done this all before. She had me -- she had me hauled me in front of a grand jury for attempted murder. And guess what? I was completely innocent.

Rosanna: And now?

Craig: I never laid a hand on her.

Rosanna: That's not what I asked.

Craig: What do I have to do to convince you?

Rosanna: You have to look me in the eye and swear to me that you had nothing to do with Barbara's kidnapping.

Craig: If she was kidnapped. Huh? Maybe she made this whole thing up. Maybe she had no designs, didn't want to face you, so she invented this kidnapping.

Rosanna: Craig, you and I both have a talent for lying. But to each other, we have just promised to tell the truth. It would be a real shame to break that promise just as we're starting a life together.

Lucy: Daddy?

Craig: Yeah, what is it, sweetie?

Lucy: Our dance?

Craig: Right now.

Tom: Ah, don't tell me.

Margo: I'm sorry. Jessica called. Apparently Ben has been arrested for disrupting the proceedings and refusing to testify.

Tom: Okay, call me if you need me.

Margo: Okay.

Tom: Love you.

Lily: There you are.

Holden: Oh, sorry I'm late. What'd I miss?

[Laughter] What's so funny?

Lily: It was beautiful. The ceremony was beautiful. And Lucy walked down the aisle. That was wonderful.

Lucinda: Yes, she did. And the minister was mercifully brief.

Lily: Yes. And then Barbara showed up and accused everyone of kidnapping her.

Holden: I always miss the good stuff.

Lucinda: No, darling. 'Cause you're just in time to dance with me.

Holden: Where is Aaron?

Lily: He's waiting for his cue.

Holden: Craig lays one hand on him, I hope you know a good lawyer, because I'm gonna need one.

Emily: Rose, you are a genius.

Rose: You show Hal the watch?

Emily: Yeah. Yeah, I did. And he even apologized for being suspicious. Which, if I didn't hate Barbara so much, I might feel the slightest bit guilty.

Rose: I'm so sick and tired of her "poor me" act. And Paul falls for it every single time. He left with her.

Emily: Oh. Oh, Rose, I'm sorry.

Rose: It's all right. I'll get a ride home with Dusty. I'll see Paul tomorrow.

Emily: Okay. Well, I'm gonna go. I'm gonna -- I'm gonna get Hal out of here. But thank you for taking me to the mall and buying a duplicate watch.

Rose: You can take the girl outta Jersey --

Emily: Yeah, see you around.

Rose: Okay.

Rose: You find Molly?

Dusty: Yeah. C'mon. Let's get outta here. She took a cab.

Rose: You all right with that?

Dusty: Yeah, I'm more than all right.

Rose: Good. You got your priorities straight.

Dusty: Always.

Lucy: Careful --

Craig: I've got you. I've got you. I've got you. I will always catch you. That's who I am. I'm the one guy you will always be able to count on.

Barbara: Hal promised me that Craig -- Jack.

Jack: The concierge let me in. We've got a team out at the cabin, one in the woods. I thought I'd take a look around here, make sure nothing was stolen.

Barbara: My designs. My designs -- oh, God! They're gone! He stole them! I told you this was Craig Montgomery. I told you -- he had me kidnapped, and he stole my designs so that Carly would have a chance to create her own line. That's exactly what happened! It was supposed to be my chance! I was supposed to be the head at Monte Carlo, not Carly. Do you understand me, Jack?!

Jack: I'll certainly look into it. Okay, guys? You wanna -- you wanna wrap this up? Please?

Paul: I think my mother needs to rest.

Jack: I completely understand. Look, I'll call you tomorrow. Let me know where we are, okay?

Barbara: You lock him up.

Jack: Guys.

Barbara: All that work. All that work. Those designs were magnificent. I would have been back on top again.

[Barbara sobs]

Carly: Are you okay?

Molly: Yeah. Weddings, you know. I should go. I called a cab.

Carly: They'll call from the gatehouse. Did you talk to Mike?

Molly: I would have. If he wasn't arm-in-arm with Katie.

Carly: Well, you came with that guy --

Molly: Dusty? I know. I bit his head off. Because he said that he didn't like being used to make Mike jealous, and you know how much I love being called on my stuff, so I'm leaving here by myself.

Carly: Well, let me see if I can get you a ride home.

Mike: I can take you home.

Molly: Um -- I called a cab.

Mike: I didn't come here to throw Katie Frasier in your face.

Molly: Why not? I threw Dusty in yours. Mike, I can't expect you to be a monk. And Katie is perfect for you. You know, I mean, she just lost the love of her life, like me a year ago. And taking care of people with a broken heart is your best event, right, Mike?

Mike: I don't blame you for being angry. I wasn't fair to you. The stuff with Carly was bad enough. But then I didn't give you a chance when you gave me one. I -- I really am sorry, Molly, for all of it. I should've treated you better.

[Car horn honks]

Molly: That's my cab. I should go.

Rose: Let's just say our good-byes and get outta here.

Lucinda: Hey, Dusty. I'd ask you to dance with me, except Craig is monopolizing the floor.

Lily: It is his wedding, mother.

Lucinda: Right. Let him enjoy himself as best he can. After the fuss that Barbara made, I'm surprised he hasn't been carted off somewhere. Who do you suppose was helping Craig with Barbara, Rose? Any ideas? Barbara mentioned she heard female voices.

Dusty: True. And she was also whacked out on chloroform.

Rose: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Whoever it was, I hope they're in the book. I'll get 'em next.

Lily: Rose.

Rose: You don't have her breathing down your neck, when you're not getting married to her son. And thank you again very much for nudging me to tell Paul to invite her to the wedding.

Lily: Where is Paul?

Rose: Three guesses.

Holden: You need a ride home?

Rose: You're a peach. But, no, I picked up this handsome guy by the buffet.

Dusty: Let me get the car.

Lily: You and Dusty seem to be getting along.

Rose: Yeah, you were right. He's not such a bad guy. I'm gonna say good night to the bride. I'll call you tomorrow. Bye.

Holden: Who is it she's marrying?

Lily: They're just friends.

Rose: I'd have said good night to Craig, but he's very busy with ginger.

Rosanna: I'll tell him that you said good-bye. Thank you so much for coming, Rose.

Rose: Oh, well, you know --

Rosanna: You look lovely.

Rose: Oh, thank you.

Rosanna: Of course.

Rose: Good wedding. Bye-bye.

Rosanna: Please Craig, be a good father tonight.

Craig: You're dancing, you're walking. We'll have to think about getting you back in school full-time.

Lucy: Well, walking was really important to me. I wanted to walk down the aisle for you. But I didn't do it all alone. I had some very special help.

Craig: Yeah, well. Yes, Gloria was very good.

Lucy: Yes, she was. But she's not the reason I'm walking today. Actually -- Aaron's why I can walk. He worked with me every day. He inspired me. I mean, if it weren't for him, I'd still be in the wheelchair. He was the only person who understood how much I really needed to walk today, because I needed to walk for you. It's all because of him. And he's really a good person. And he means the world to me. So, would you please just give him a chance? For me?

Jessica: Ben, I am so sorry about this.

Ben: I think I'm just gonna get a copy of my new mug shot and hang it next to my diplomas.

Jessica: I don't know if the hospital board will appreciate the humor, but I do. I'll talk to Bob.

Ben: It's you I'm worried about. Travers is still out there, Jess.

Jessica: No, you don't need to worry about me. I'm taking steps to keep him at bay. I'll be fine.

Cop #3: Dr. Harris, if you'll come this way.

Jessica: Listen, I'll see you later.

Ben: Send me a cake with a file in it, huh?

Margo: Jess -- I called Evelyn on the way over. What a disaster.

Jessica: Well, it's not over. Marshall cornered me outside the courtroom. I want to file a restraining order against him.

Isaac: Where were you?

Bonnie: Using the employee bathroom -- unless that's a problem.

Isaac: Bonnie --

Bonnie: Look, thanks for the drink.

Isaac: Bonnie, I wish you wouldn't leave like this. But if you go after Marshall Travers, you're on your own.

Bonnie: So you've said. Good night.

Barbara: It is one thing to kidnap me and replace me with his whore as head designer. It is quite another to steal my designs. I could have peddled those somewhere else. I could have sold them.

Paul: If Craig did this, I promise you, mom, I will make him pay.

Barbara: Well, Paul, he didn't do it alone. I heard women whispering.

Paul: Did you recognize them?

Barbara: If I were you, I'd ask your fiancée if she had anything to do with kidnapping your mother.

Dusty: To Barbara.

Rose: Bite your tongue.

Dusty: To Rose.

Rose: Yes.

Dusty: For being as good as her word.

Rose: Aw, you -- you mean about Barbara coming back into town? You really weren't worried about her? She's like a cockroach. You can't kill that woman. And thank you for bailing me out with Lucinda. I mean, she's a little suspicious of me -- not that I blame her.

Dusty: Don't worry about it. You're not Barbara's only enemy. You know that.

Rose: But I am her future daughter-in-law, which proves how much I love her son.

Dusty: What do you have to prove, huh? You don't have to prove anything.

Rose: I just get mad at him sometimes, you know? He's always cleaning up after her. Which -- which is wrong. I really shouldn't be feeling like that. My pop left to go to Italy, and I was right there, right behind him.

Dusty: Your pop's a good guy.

Rose: The best.

[Cell phone rings] Hey, how's your mom?

Paul: Where are you?

Rose: I'm having a drink with Dusty.

Dusty: Hey, Preppy.

Paul: I need you to meet me downstairs.

Rose: Why don't you come up here?

Paul: Because I want to talk to you alone.

Rose: Okay.

Paul: I'll be in the lounge.

Rose: Okay. I'll see you there. I'm in trouble.

Dusty: What's wrong?

Rose: Paul wants me to meet him downstairs. I know he's gonna grill me about his ma.

Dusty: That's okay. Relax. You want me to go down there with you?

Rose: No. I can handle it. But thank you. You're very sweet.

Dusty: You're very sweet. I mean it.

Molly: What do you want, Molly? I guess you better go home and figure it out.

Jack: Find out whose watch this is. Canvas every jewelry from here to Chicago. See if they sell this item, and if they remember the purchaser.

Cop: Most of the stores over there have security cameras.

Jack: Check the tapes, receipts, inventory. Maybe it came with a serial number. Just find out who bought that watch.

[Pager beeps]

Carly: Hey, g-man.

Jack: Hey. I'm glad you called. I didn't like the way we left things.

Carly: Yeah. I don't blame you for being confused. I know I was acting strange

the last couple of days, but that's just because I -- I knew you didn't approve of me working. I didn't want to fight with you. And I had to do those drawings. It had nothing to do with Barbara, Jack. I swear to you, I didn't know anything about that. I know -- I know I'm pushing it, asking you to believe me.

Jack: I believe you, Carly.

Carly: You do?

Jack: Yes. I'm gonna find out who did this so everybody else will believe you, too.

Carly: Thanks, Jack.

Jack: So what's going on? You need me to pick you up?

Carly: I got a ride. And I want you to know that tomorrow I'm gonna be moving out of Emma's. I really need my own place. And seeing Rosanna and Craig getting married today -- all I could think of was you and me. I gotta go.

Jack: Carly?

Craig: What else has been going on behind my back?

Lucy: Daddy, don't be angry. Aaron was here every day helping me with my exercises. He wouldn't let me give up.

Craig: Aaron was here every day? You let this lowlife see my child when I asked you not to?

Lucy: He was here when you were too busy to pay attention.

Aaron: Don't go there, Lucy.

Craig: Aaron -- Aaron, you weren't invited to this wedding. So you better get out before I throw you out.

Holden: Touch him and you'll answer to me. Come on, let's go.

Aaron: I'm not leaving Lucy like this.

Lily: It's only gonna make things worse. Just listen to your father. Let's go.

Lucy: I'm sorry, Aaron.

Craig: You want me to call the police?

Holden: I don't think you wanna do that, Craig. They might not want to wait till tomorrow to arrest you for Barbara's kidnapping. Come on, let's go.

Lucinda: Honey -- I'm on your side in this. And your mother will hear about it from me. All right?

Lucy: How could you do that?

Craig: He's using you, sweetness.

Lucy: You're wrong!

Craig: Lucy, Lucy --

Katie: You can be such a pig sometimes. Lucy -- Lucy, honey, wait up.

Craig: You did this?

Rosanna: The two of them worked six hours a day to get her ready to walk down that aisle for you -- to make you happy. And instead of admitting you were wrong about Aaron --

Craig: I am not wrong! I am not wrong! You lied -- you lied to me.

Rosanna: Yes.

Craig: I think you were right when you said that starting off a life with a lie is a mistake. You couldn't even follow your own advice.
