Carly: I thought I knew about all the women in your past, Jack.

Jack: Mitzi was never my woman.

Carly: But you never even told me that the two of you were close.

Jack: But there was nothing to tell, Carly. We were just -- we -- we're friends.

Carly: Friends. Then how friendly are you Jack? As friendly as we are? As friendly as, let's say, you and Nancy Hughes?

Jack: I can honestly say that Nancy Hughes and I are better friends than Mitzi --

Carly: Apparently Mitzi knows you well enough to have dropped by here before. Did she come with Rose or were the two of you alone?

Jack: Nothing happened, okay? Nothing. You believe me, right? You're -- no -- you're not jealous. You're just jerking my chain, isn't that it?

Carly: I don't know. I'll decide after I hear more about the saga of you and Mitzi Matters. [Doorbell ringing]

Jack: I better get that. Probably important.

Jack: Rosanna. Come on in. What brings you by? I mean, it's not like you need a reason. You're welcome any time. Carly, look, it's Rosanna.

Rosanna: I hope I'm not interrupting anything?

Jack: No, no, not at all. In fact, I was just on my way to the station.

Carly: I thought you said you didn't have to work until --

Jack: I'll be home as soon as I can. Love you.

Carly: Well make sure when you come back here you've got your story straight.

Rosanna: Since when has Jack had to have his story straight?

Carly: Since I found out about his girlfriend.

Dusty: What are you smiling about?

Molly: Last night.

Dusty: Oh yeah? Just out of curiosity -- how was I?

Molly: You really want to know?

Dusty: Yeah, that's why I'm asking.

Molly: Okay then. On a scale of 1 to 10?

Dusty: Mm-hmm.

Molly: For agility I give you a 12. For inspiration and creativity? 13.

Dusty: At least. Your body? It's off the charts -- I can't go there.

Dusty: Mmm. Stamina? Three.

Dusty: Wait a second. Wait a second. A three? What are you talking about?

Molly: I'm a tough grader. What can I say? I just didn't want it to stop. I'm All-Night Molly, remember?

Dusty: Are you getting romantic on me?

Molly: Don't flatter yourself.

Dusty: Rose and I just split up, so -- take it easy, cowboy.

Molly: I don't know if we have a future or not, but I am enjoying the present right down to my toes. That's all.

Rose: "To Hell with Barbara?" I'm on board with that. "To Hell with Paul?" Uh, Emily, I don't think I'm there yet.

Emily: Rose, you didn't do anything wrong, all right? If it weren't for you, I can only imagine the trouble will would be in. He should be worshiping the ground you walk on.

Rose: Oh. Right. Instead he's, uh, avoiding his foul-mouth fiancée like the plague. I did everything wrong. I handled it all wrong.

Emily: You found the truth, okay?

Rose: I was very proud of myself, yeah, finding out that Barbara was responsible for what happened. I was so excited, I didn't even talk to Paul about it first. I didn't care, I just wanted -- I just wanted a showdown with Barbara Ryan.

Emily: It doesn't matter how it happened, or who brought Barbara down. The important thing is that it happened.

Rose: No, no, I should've talked to Paul first. I should -- this is his apartment, this is his family, it's his mother, his brother --

Emily: You're about to marry the man, okay? Unfortunately, they're going to be your family as much as they are his, and if he's going to resent you for giving a damn -- Rose, he doesn't deserve to be your husband.

Rose: You should've seen the look in his eyes, Emily.

Emily: Rose, if he blames you for caring enough to stick out your neck out like that -- for saving his little brother -- then -- well then I don't know -- it's my job to get you out of here and into a stiff drink or something.

Rose: Oh no, I've got to around here until Paul comes back --

Emily: No, what you need is someone who to shake a little sense in you. Forget it, you're -- I'm not letting you sit around here waiting for him to come home so he can read you the riot act. He needs to talk to you, he can come find you. Go, let's go.

Will: Go find mom. I want to talk to her.

Paul: Will, when are you going to put yourself first for a change?

Will: As soon as you stop hating her.

Paul: What she did was wrong. She used you to make sure that everything went her way.

Will: So, I'm fine with that, why can't you stay out of it?

Paul: You shouldn't be fine with that, will. You should stand up for yourself. You should be angry, you should be mad --

Will: I am mad! At you!

Paul: Aw, come on, Will. Isn't there a little part of you, a small part of you that is angry at Barbara?

Will: I don't want to see her get punished.

Paul: I -- I don't enjoy seeing Barbara get hurt, but you know what she did to me, you know what she did to Rose, you know what she did to my apartment --

Will: So, she's your mom. You're not supposed to get her in trouble, you're supposed to help her.

Paul: She did this to herself, Will.

Will: Will she have to go to court?

Paul: I don't know. It's out of my hands. The only thing that I do know for sure is that she stepped over a line when she got you mixed up in her games. And it is time for things to change around here.

Will: Change how?

Paul: Barbara is going to have to learn to live like everybody else. She's going to have to learn that she can't hurt innocent people and get away with it, ever again.

Barbara: What are you going to do?

Hal: I'm doing my job. I'm taking care of my son.

Jennifer: Sorry I'm late --

Barbara: You know, you know, all I have ever done is try to help Will keep his brother here. That's what he wanted. But you haven't seen that. No, you completely misunderstood everything I've done. You always have.

Jennifer: Whoa, what's going on here?

Hal: Will wasn't the one who went crazy with the spray paint in Paul's apartment, Jennifer. It was your mother.

Jennifer: What? Mom, why?

Hal: Run for your life, Jennifer -- while you've still got the chance.

Barbara: Well, what are you waiting for? Everyone else has ripped me to shreds, you go right ahead, okay? Go right ahead, why should you be any different, Jen?

Jennifer: Because I forgive you, mom. I forgive you. [Jennifer hugs Barbara

Rosanna: You're not at all jealous of some old girlfriend showing up on your doorstep?

Carly: Mitzi isn't Jack's old anything.

Rosanna: Did you or did you not say that you caught them kissing?

Carly: Well, no, no, no. It wasn't a kiss, exactly. It was a -- thank you. Jack helps an awful lot of people. And some of those people happen to be women. And some of those women may -- kiss him. It's no big deal.

Rosanna: And what was she thanking him for?

Carly: Well, that I don't know. He didn't say.

Rosanna: Uh-huh. Well, you know what, I wouldn't worry. I'm sure if it was important, he'd let you know.

Carly: Right. Jack is one of the last true blue good guys, right?

Rosanna: Oh, absolutely. The best. Thank you so much for lending me these clothes -- I really appreciate it.

Carly: Sure. I'm glad you can use them. Cabot will look adorable.

Rosanna: Yes. Give him a kiss for me.

Rosanna: I will, I will. Thank you so much. And I'll call you later, okay?

Carly: Okay.

Rosanna: Thank you.

Carly: Bye.

Rosanna: Bye. [Doorbell ringing]

Carly: Did you forget somethi --? Hmm, what a surprise. Again.

Mitzi: You, uh -- I saw you had company, I didn't want to intrude or anything. But I think that I left a pair of gloves here earlier?

Carly: What do they look like?

Mitzi: Oh, you know, five fingers, real frilly. The most gorgeous little gloves a girl could want.

Carly: I haven't seen anything like that.

Mitzi: You know, maybe they got stuck in the sofa cushions. I can't tell you how many pencils and change and things I've lost in these cushions.

Carly: In -- in these very cushions? On this particular sofa?

Mitzi: Maybe I should skedaddle and, uh, get going until Jack comes back.

Carly: Maybe you ought to sit down, okay? I think it's -- it's about time you tell me just how well you know my sofa -- and my husband.

Mitzi: Well, I guess you could say we all got acquainted when I used to live here.

Carly: You don't say?

Dusty: Well, I was thinking about what you said before.

Molly: It was a joke, I was kidding. Whatever this thing is between us, it's temporary. I know that, I'm cool with that.

Dusty: Uh-huh. You know, since Rose and I broke up, I, um -- I just don't even want to think about commitment, monogamy or anything along those lines.

Molly: I swear to you, on this symbol of impermanence and one-night stands that I do not love you. There.

Dusty: Well, I can really breathe now.

Molly: What?

Dusty: Watch this. You see this? This is so you can never say that I don't reciprocate.

Molly: Well, I never said that.

Dusty: 'Cause I don't love you, too.

Molly: Okay. Since we're being honest and open and out there and everything --

Dusty: Yes?

Molly: If you're still hung up on Rose, and I'm just a handy substitute, then why don't you just come out and say so?

Jennifer: Well, I know how much you love Will. You love all of us. And -- you know? It's why you did what you did what you did.

Barbara: Well, that's it exactly right. I love you all so much, I just wish that Paul could see it that way.

Jennifer: Then show him. Mom, show him and dad. Go to them and tell them how sorry you are. And ask if you can talk to Will and let him know that you made a horrible, horrible mistake. Admit to it, own up to it. You made a mistake, mom. And let them know that you are ready and willing to make things right.

Barbara: Tell me, Jennifer. What mistake have I made that I should be apologizing for?

Hal: Oh. Hey, Paul. Is Will around?

Paul: He's upstairs.

Hal: Come here.

Paul: Everything go all right with Barbara?

Hal: Oh, the usual, you know. She defended her actions, begged for forgiveness and -- how's Will holding up?

Paul: Will loves his mother. And he is convinced that she can do no wrong, which is why I think it's going to be really hard for him forgive me when I do what I need to do.

Hal: What is that, Paul?

Paul: I'm going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Barbara never damages that boy again.

Hal: Paul, I know I've blamed you for a lot. Running out on Will and breaking promises and stuff but will was never your responsibility. He's mine and he's Barbara's. She used him to get her way. And to keep the peace, I let her have her way, but will has been the one to suffer. So you -- you just look after your own future, your own life. You just leave Barbara and Will to me, okay?

Paul: Okay. No more Mr. Nice guy, huh?

Hal: No. It's time to change my M.O. Hey, you know, it's a -- it's a good thing that Rose wouldn't take "back off" for an answer.

Paul: What does that mean?

Hal: She came down to the station asking for permission to question Will about the vandalism. No if I had my way, I don't know where -- yeah, I do know where we'd be. Will would be back in therapy for another crime he didn't commit, and Barbara would've won. So I want you to thank your fiancée for me.

Paul: Well, I will. If she ever talks to me again.

Carly: Now how long did you say you and Jack were living together?

Mitzi: You know, it must have been months. But, you know what they say, "Time flies when you're having fun."

Carly: Just how much fun were you having?

Mitzi: Well, not much, actually. I mean, you and Rose and Emily had been kidnapped and taken to "God knew where," and Jack and I -- I guess we just kind of needed each other.

Carly: Really? You needed each other. Go on.

Mitzi: Look, before you go getting any crazy ideas about what was happening here in Milltown while you were getting tortured in the Alps, Jack was a perfect gentleman, okay? From beginning to end. It was separate beds, separate everything. I cooked, he cleaned, I worried, he worried. But it was hands-off, all the way, okay? I mean, even though I kind of had this little crush on him. You were all he could think about.

Carly: Really?

Mitzi: Just seeing how in love with you he was, oh, it tore me apart. I mean, you're everything to him. I always wanted somebody to love me like that, you know? So that's why I pretended that I left my gloves here. I wanted to explain that. Jack has been nothing but good and decent to me. And he doesn't deserve to get in trouble for something maybe I wanted but never happened.

Carly: And that kiss? You were thanking him for what?

Mitzi: He just agreed to do a favor for me.

Carly: And what kind of favor night that be?

Mitzi: Oh, would you look at the time?

Carly: No, what kind of favor, Mitzi?

Mitzi: You know what, it was totally innocent, okay? Cross my heart. And Jack will fill you in on everything, all right? It was -- listen, thanks for the tea.

Carly: Mitzi!

Lily: Hello, Jack.

Jack: Oh, Lily. Thanks for meeting me. Have a seat.

Lily: My pleasure. Long time, no see.

Jack: Yeah, no kidding.

Lily: So you said that you need a favor for a friend? How much? Cash?

Jack: No. Actually, it's one of Rose's friends.

Lily: Oh.

Jack: Mitzi Matters? She wants to run the Roller Palace.

Lily: I know. I know, I know. She talked to me about buying the place, I said, no, I'm not interested.

Jack: You've got something against the beautification of our fair city?

Lily: No, I -- no, I invested because of Rose. Maybe Mitzi and Rose can work something out.

Jack: Well, truth me told, things haven't been going so hot between Mitzi and Rose.

Lily: Hmm. Rose and the rest of the world.

Jack: What, you too?

Lily: I have opinions. I think they're valid opinions. She doesn't want to listen, because if she listens, she starts thinking, and if she starts thinking, she'll realize she's making a huge mistake.

Jack: Leaving Oakdale?

Lily: Leaving Oakdale. Selling her shop. Quickie marriage, moving overseas, leaving everybody that loves her behind.

Jack: Hey, listen, you're family. And she's got to know no matter where she goes in this world, you'll always be part of her life. Right? If she's got you, she always has something to come home to.

Lily: Something to come home to -- Jack, I think I love you.

Dusty: Does Rose cross my mind every now and then? Sure. Just like you must think of what's-his-name -- mike every once in a while.

Molly: True.

Dusty: But you're not waiting for him to come through the door, are you?

Molly: Waste of time.

Dusty: Of course it is. I mean, you can't linger in heartbreak, no lonely teardrops or anything like that. When it's done, it's over. So how does that work for you?

Molly: Like a charm, baby.

Dusty: You're the charm, baby. You're the magic touch. And I'll tell you something else -- that new day manager that you hired -- dynamite. And since the day is slow, what do you say we get out of here?

Molly: What do you have in mind?

Dusty: I'm thinking your place. See if I can beat the three on the stamina --

Molly: Oh, oh, I'd love to work on that with you. But I have a meeting with the wine distributor.

Dusty: What time?

Molly: Half an hour.

Dusty: Make it short, and I'll see you back at your place.

Molly: This is going to be the shortest meeting in history.

Barbara: No, I want to know, Jennifer. I want to know what mistake I've made that I should be apologizing for?

Jennifer: Mom! You made will admit to something he didn't do. Is that something a mother should do to her child?

Barbara: Mothers have to make difficult choices sometimes. You know, everyone is missing the big picture here!

Jennifer: What is bigger than your child's happiness and well-being?

Barbara: Will went along with my idea because he knows what Rose has done to this family. That's the bigger picture. She's been allowed to ride roughshod over all of us, while she's trying to destroy this family. So you tell me what my mistake is. That I love my children too much? That I want to keep my son in this town? That I'm trying to hold this family together? Well, I will not apologize for that. I won't.

Jennifer: Mom, this is your chance to make everything right with everyone, including Paul. We all remember the woman you used to be. Why can't you?

Barbara: Jennifer --

Jennifer: No. Instead of deciding how you're going to get back at Paul or dad, you should be figuring out what you can do to help Will. You're his mother. Start acting like it.

Emily: Okay, you know what? When I -- when I said that I wanted to take you out for a stiff drink, this is not what I had in mind.

Rose: You know, maybe I should just stay at Paul's.

Emily: What -- what good would that do?

Rose: 'Cause then it would all be out on the table. Instead, here I am, just avoiding the inevitable -- what's going to happen.

Emily: Would you stop second-guessing yourself? You didn't do anything wrong.

Rose: Eh.

Emily: The one you ought to be doubting right now is Paul.

Rose: Why?

Emily: Why? Because if he isn't man enough to stand up and defend the woman he loves, especially when it's a question of Barbara Ryan, then he doesn't deserve you.

Rose: I don't know about that, Emily --

Emily: What is wrong with you? What -- what happened to my Rose D'Angelo who practically had the words "take no prisoners" tattooed to her tush, huh?

Rose: I've got to ask myself a question, one question. What do I want? I want to be happy. I want to be with Paul because I love him. You know, I should just go back there and I should just tell him --

Emily: Don't you dare say "apologize." You haven't done anything wrong.

Rose: Then why hasn't he found me? Or called me? Why isn't he out around town looking for me telling me that he loves me? That I did the right thing. That I didn't make a mistake. No, I went too far this time. I think I lost Paul for good.

Paul: Rose?! Rose?!

Rosanna: Oh, just your landlord, I'm afraid. Sorry if I scared you, I let myself in.

Paul: Hi.

Rosanna: Hi.

Paul: Oh, yeah, I -- the damage. I had it repainted and -- and, wow. Well it looks better than it did before. What, you already knew all about --

Rosanna: Yes. The super was sweet enough to fill me in on all the details.

Paul: The super -- super. How sweet.

Rosanna: Yes. He also mentioned that you're not filing a police report?

Paul: Well, the perp has been apprehended. The case is closed.

Rosanna: Ah, I see. So who was it? A former lover? Business rival?

Paul: My mother.

Rosanna: Ooh. Fascinating family you have.

Paul: You don't know the half of it.

Rosanna: What? What is it?

Paul: It's Rose's key here. We had a fight.

Rosanna: It must have been a pretty big fight for her to leave her key.

Paul: I just hope this isn't her way of saying good-bye.

Rosanna: You're afraid that Rose may have left you forever and you're standing there doing nothing? What are you doing? Call her!

Lily: This is perfect. I can't stop Rose from moving, obviously. But I could keep Rosie's Roller Palace around for her if she decides -- if she decides to come back.

Jack: Well, it sounds like it might work out for both of us.

Lily: And Mitzi can run the place in the meantime. And then if Rose comes back and she wants the place, it's hers. If not, then --

Jack: Then maybe Mitzi can buy the whole thing. It's terrific.

Lily: It is.

Jack: Thank you very much.

Lily: Okay. What do you want me to tell her?

Lily: Uh, tell her to call me.

Jack: All right. Well, I'm going to go tell Mitzi. She's going to flip when she hears this.

Lily: Yeah. Yeah, let's get out of here. You know, simple question -- how does Carly feel about Mitzi latching herself on to you?

Jack: She's curious. Definitely curious.

Lily: Really.

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Hal: Will, I think it's time that you and I had a little talk, here.

Will: Dad, if it's another sex talk, I've already told you everything I know.

Hal: Huh. Very funny. No, I think it's time that we lay down some ground rules about you seeing your mom.

Will: What do you mean? [Phone ringing]

Hal: One second. Yes? Oh, thank you for getting back to me so fast.

Will: Who is it?

Hal: It's the lawyer. I'm going to take this upstairs, okay? Hey, you just finish making these heroes, all right?

Will: No sweat.

Hal: Yes. Okay.

[Phone ringing]

Will: I got it. Hello?

Barbara: How are you, Will?

Will: Oh. I'm okay. What about you?

Barbara: I'm fine, now that I'm talking to you.

Will: Look, I'm really sorry about getting you in trouble with everybody.

Barbara: Oh, don't you worry about that, okay? Is your dad around?

Will: Actually, he's upstairs on the phone. Do you want to talk to him?

Barbara: Actually, I was hoping to spend some time with my favorite guy. Just the two of us.

Rosanna: Okay, what's wrong now?

Paul: Well, I'll call her -- but I mean, what do I do if she answers?

Rosanna: You say that you're sorry. You say, "I was a fool. I'll do anything to fix it," et cetera, et cetera. Go from there.

Paul: You don't have any idea what happened, do you?

Rosanna: Well no, I don't. I don't. I don't have to. I mean, you're sorry, aren't you?

Paul: We've both said that so many times that words have kind of lost their meaning.

Rosanna: Well, then you now what you do? You show her.

Paul: I did, I proposed.

Rosanna: Well, have you done anything to show her that the marriage is going to happen, no matter what? Have you done anything to show her that you love her unconditionally? Forever? For the rest of your life?

Emily: You haven't lost Paul for good, so will you just forget about this scenario for a while.

Rose: Almost every, single time we fight, it's always about something that somebody in that family has done.

Emily: Look, he was embarrassed that he was hearing about Will's confession at the same time Barbara was and he lashed out. That's it. It's not like he's going to let this keep the two of you apart forever, Rose, come on.

Rose: I don't know. I mean, I'm supposed to be marrying the man of my dreams and nothing is going right. Lily can barely talk to me, Mitzi's mad at me 'cause I won't let her run the shop and Paul's entire family is out to get me. And you know what, I don't even care about any of that. If I knew, for sure, that Paul was on my side. I need him to defend me, no matter what. No matter what this big mouth does or says, or no matter how many mistakes that I make.

Emily: Oh sweetie, listen to me. That's called unconditional love and you deserve it.

Rose: Thank you, but I think he's saving it for his family. I do.

Emily: Rose, as soon as the two of you move away from this place, everything will be different, I promise

Rose: I don't know. I feel bad for him, you know? James and Barbara? Sometimes I feel like they got their claws so deep in him. I'm just -- I'm just spinnin' my wheels.

Mitzi: Psst, Jack!

Jack: Who's there?

Mitzi: Nobody here but a chick who's a chicken.

Jack: Mitzi, what are you waiting out here in the cold for? Come on inside.

Mitzi: No, no, no. You know, if you've got bad news for me, I'd rather hear it while I'm too cold to cry. So did you talk to Lily about the Roller Palace?

Jack: I did. And things look good. You should give her a call.

Mitzi: Get outta here. Really? You mean it?

Jack: Yeah, really. I mean it.

Mitzi: Oh! Jack Snyder, I have said it a million times and I'm gonna say it a zillion more -- you're the best. [Mitzi gives Jack a peck on the cheek]

Jack: Hey, sweetheart.

Carly: What are you doing?

Jack: I was going to give you a kiss?

Carly: Well from the looks of that lipstick, I'd say you're all kissed out. I just hope that little girlfriend of yours left you some energy in those lips, because you have some serious explaining to do.

Hal: Will, the -- Will? Hey, Will? Will!

Operator: The number of your last incoming phone call was 555-2789.

[Answering machine]

Barbara: Hi. You've reached Barbara Ryan. Please leave me a message after the beep.

Barbara: Hey! There he is. Oh, good to see you, sweetie.

Will: Really?

Barbara: Yeah, always.

Will: Sorry if I got you into any trouble.

Barbara: Oh honey, come on. You didn't do anything wrong. Nothing. You're a sweet, compassionate, loving, honest, young man. And I was wrong to take advantage of that. I'm sorry. Can you forgive me?

Will: Sure. But I guess Paul's not gonna stick around.

Barbara: Well, we don't really know what's going to happen there, do we? But I'll tell you what, I think in the future you and I should spend less time talking about Paul and Rose and more time just hanging out. What do you think?

Will: Yeah?

Barbara: Yeah. I think that when you have a break from school, we should head off on a vacation. Or weekends we can head into Chicago, go to some movies, museums, shows, what do you think?

Will: Can we have French fries and ice cream for lunch?

Barbara: We can have anything we want.

Will: Then I think it's time to order.

Rosanna: Now are you serious about marrying Rose?

Paul: Of course.

Rosanna: Hmm. All right. Well then, you have to prove to her beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is the only woman who matters. You have to sweep her off her feet. It's brilliant advice, if you ask me, and if you're smart, you'll take it.

Paul: I probably shouldn't say this, and don't take it the wrong way --

Rosanna: Oh my goodness, I'm worried.

Paul: But can I keep you?

Rosanna: I beg your pardon?

Paul: Well, you know, on one shoulder I have demons, you know, enough demons to fill one of the rungs of hell. Now if I could just keep you on the other shoulder, you know, as an angel, it would kind of balance everything out. So thanks.

Rosanna: Well, yes. You're welcome. Don't waste time thanking me. You've got to go get that woman. Come on

Emily: Rose, you're not doubting that Paul loves you, are you?

Rose: No! No. I know he loves me. It's just that family. Like a bad habit that he can't quit. He tries, he does try really hard to break away, but he can't break free. The more he gives, the more they want. I mean, when do I get to come first? That's all I'm asking.

Emily: When you move away from this place and that nightmare mother of his.

Rose: No, he's going to resent me. He might forgive me, but he's never going to forget. Just like I can't forget the way he yelled at me today.

Emily: Oh come on, he yelled at me today too, big deal. So he lost his temper. That's what guys do. It doesn't mean anything, doesn't mean it's over -- unless you want it to be.

[Phone ringing]

Molly: Hello. Metro. Molly speaking.

Dusty: What's going on, baby?

Molly: Ooh, it's you. Well I'm done with the wine distributor and I'm going to be home in a minute and then I'm all yours.

Dusty: I'm glad you're still there 'cause I forgot to close out on register number two.

Molly: So leave it for tonight.

Dusty: I would, but I don't want all the receipts to get jammed up if we're going to open up that register later, you know?

Molly: Okay, so I'll have the day bartender ring it out after his shift is over.

Dusty: Look, I'd rather you do it so I know that it gets done right. Do you mind?

Molly: Absolutely not, and I'll be there in a flash.

Dusty: Take your time, sweetheart.

Molly: What's the matter, you got your hands full?

Dusty: I will shortly.

Jack: Nothing is going on between me and Mitzi. Never has, never will. We're friends.

Carly: So I heard.

Jack: What --? And things never got physical between us. Certainly never like this. Never even crossed my mind.

Carly: I'm really glad to hear that, Jack.

Jack: So you're not mad at me?

Carly: Well, it would've been nice to know in advance that you and Mitzi were friends at one point.

Jack: I never -- I never mentioned that. I should have, yeah.

Carly: And while you were at it, you should've told me that the two of you lived together while I was off in spa land.

Jack: I, uh, never mentioned that either?

Carly: No, no, not a word.

Jack: Well, Carly, we were under a lot of stress. And you were missing in action, and I was worried to death about you.

Carly: I know. And that's why it's completely understandable that a few pertinent details about our time apart just slipped your mind.

Jack: Yeah? Mm-hmm.

Carly: Mm-hmm. [Carly grabs Jack's hair and pulls it back]

Jack: Ah!

Carly: But if you ever forget to mention another woman in your life again, G-man? [Jack gasps]

Carly: You got it?

Jack: I got it.

Carly: Good.

Barbara: You know how I eat when I'm happy. And I'm very happy having lunch with my favorite guy. You're just lucky you have any fries left on your plate.

Hal: How's it going, Will?

Will: Dad, I --

Hal: Took some time to track you down.

Will: I'm sorry. You were on the phone, I was -- I meant to leave a note and --

Hal: But instead you hopped on your bike and you sped over here without telling me where you were going. Put your bike in the car, I'll be out in a minute.

Will: Okay. Love you, mom.

Barbara: Love you more.

Barbara: I know you must be furious with me.

Hal: Oh, you haven't got the slightest idea.

Barbara: I promise you that nothing like this will ever happen again.

Hal: Oh, you got that right. All this stops today.

Barbara: Yes. Which is what I was just talking to will about, and I wanted to talk to you, too. I am so ashamed of what I have done --

Hal: As of right now, Barbara, your visitation rights with will are suspended.

Barbara: What? You can't do this to me. You've got to have a court order!

Hal: You're right. It's a restraining order. Read it over. You come within 100 feet of Will and you are going to jail.

Rosanna: Rose doesn't need promises or apologies. She needs to know that she comes first. That you're going to be there in the church the day that you get married, that you're going to love her every day for the rest of your life.

Paul: I've got a great idea.

Rosanna: All right, let's hear it.

Paul: Yeah -- no, I -- want to take a ride?

Rosanna: Where to?

Paul: To get my fiancée to fall in love with me again. This time, forever.

Rosanna: Excellent. Let's go. Hey, do you have your keys?

Emily: Rose, until you actually speak with Paul, you're operating on a whole bunch of assumptions. You know, you're afraid he'll never forgive you because you're the one who exposed his mother to her own kids, but --

Rose: Yeah.

Emily: There's just as much a chance that he's still a perfectly sane human being who had a moment of weakness and he's the one looking for forgiveness. And you'll give it to him because you love him, just as much as he loves you.

Rose: Wait, I'm confused. Weren't you just, like, talking about taking no prisoners?

Emily: Only if he doesn't surrender. Don't decide anything until you hear him out, okay?

Rose: All right, maybe you're right.

Emily: Of course I'm right. Unfortunately, I'm also late for an appointment. I've got to go. Are you going to be okay?

Rose: Yeah. I'll be all right. I'll give him five minutes. Five minutes and then I'll talk to him. I'll call him on my cell --

Emily: That's the Rose I know and love. Call me and let me know what happens.

Rose: I will.

Dusty: Hey. I've been thinking about you.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Craig: What is going on?

John: All I can tell you is that Cabot's adoption may be at risk. [Fast globe]

Rose: I did my time with you. Why don't we just leave it at that?

Dusty: 'Cause I still care about you. [Fast globe]

Rosanna: Well, did you want to call Rose and tell her to get over here?

Paul: Right, can't wait.
