[Katie remembering]

Katie: Did you take the test? What did it say?

Alison: That I'm pregnant.

Katie: Oh, honey.


Chris: Hi. Sorry to keep you waiting.

Alison: Oh, it's okay. You're a busy guy.

Chris: So --?

Alison: So here we are.

Chris: You said that you had something you wanted to tell me.

Alison: Right. And I was thinking about canceling, and I almost did, only --

Chris: What?

Alison: It's important, Chris. And you have the right to know.

Katie: Alison, hi, it's Katie. Listen, I know you're probably talking to Chris right now, but I just wanted you to know that I'm thinking about you. In fact, we should talk later. I'm gonna be by the hospital, I have to pick up Mike, so we'll talk then, sweetie, okay? Bye.

Mike: Looks like I can save you a trip. Maybe even buy you another cup of coffee.

Katie: Where are your crutches?

Mike: Don't need 'em. Dr. Hughes said since I was healing so fast, he could take off the old cast, put on a more flexible one so I can move.

Katie: Congratulations.

Mike: Thank you, thank you.

Katie: What about your arm?

Mike: Feels better every day.

Katie: Well -- isn't that great?

Mike: Yeah. I can pretty much do everything on my own now, so, you know, you're off the hook.

Katie: Which hook would that be?

Mike: I don't need you to stay with me anymore.

Ben: Waiting's torture, isn't it? You know, if you were my patient and this were surgery, Iíd have the anesthesiologist give you something to help you calm down.

Jessica: My daughter is being sentenced for manslaughter today, Ben. Staying calm is out of the question.

Ben: We'll get through this, Jess.

Jessica: I can't believe she pleaded guilty to killing Marshall. It was an accident. I tried to get her to change her mind, but there's just no getting through to her!

Ben: Even so, she shouldn't have fired you as her attorney.

Jessica: Oh, but you know Bonnie. She thinks with her heart and then waits for her head to catch up. This time -- I know this judge, and he is tough, and he is by the book. He could give her the maximum without batting an eye. Sweetheart, are you all right?

Bonnie: Well, I ate some breakfast this morning. That must be a good sign, right?

Ben: Hey, Bonnie.

Bonnie: Hey. Thanks for being here. It's good to see some familiar faces.

Tom: Morning, everyone.

Jessica: Morning, Tom.

Bonnie: Tom? Can I ask you a question?

Tom: Yeah, what do you need?

Bonnie: I know that Iíve asked you this like a million times before and each time you said no, but this might be my last chance to see Sarah, and I was wondering if I could just have one visit with her, just one visit, when we're finished here, please?

Tom: I'm sorry, Bonnie.

Bonnie: Why not?

Tom: If the judge imposes the type of sentence we're expecting, you could go straight from this courtroom to prison.

Lily: Hello. All right, Iíve rearranged my entire schedule to be here today, to talk to you. I hope you have something to say.

Dusty: I do.

Lily: Good.

Dusty: Thanks for coming.

Lily: Is it about Aaron?

Dusty: Rose.

Lily: I was afraid of that.

Dusty: Why?

Lily: Okay, Paul and Rose are getting married and they're moving to Paris. That's going to happen. And there's nothing you can do about it.

Dusty: But I've already done something about it.

Lily: Oh. What?

Dusty: I found out Paulís lying.

Rose: I gotta go, I'm gonna be late for my doctor's appointment.

Paul: Where you going?

Rose: I'll see you later.

Paul: No, Rose, you can't go out there all alone.

Rose: Ooh, Oakdale, broad daylight. Can't go out there.

Paul: You got a phone call, all right? Now, I know that you think this threatening thing was just some kid playing a prank, but the more I think about it, the more I don't know what it was. But I don't think it's something that we can just ignore.

Rose: I'm not ignoring anything. I'm moving in with you. That's why we're handling it.

Paul: What if that's not enough, Rose?

Rose: Okay, all right, all right. I admit, the phone call definitely rattled me. But I slept on it, and I realize that I'm always safe when I'm with you.

Paul: Rose --

Rose: Oh!

Bonnie: I've accepted the fact that I'm going to jail, Tom. All I want to do is be able to talk to Sarah before I go.

Tom: I'm sorry, Bonnie; the law is very specific about this.

Bonnie: Come on, can't we petition the court? Explain to the judge how she's been to foster homes and shelters throughout her whole life? I mean, there's no way that this judge will let me just disappear from this girl's life without a word. Please, Tom.

Tom: I think we better take our seats.

Bailiff: All rise. This court is now in session. The honorable William Cross presiding. You may be seated.

Judge: This court will impose sentencing in the case of the State vs. Bonnie Mckechnie. The defendant has already pleaded guilty and is representing herself. Ms. Mckechnie -- any comments?

Bonnie: No, sir.

Judge: Anyone you would like to speak on your behalf?

Bonnie: No. No, sir.

Jessica: Excuse me, your honor. Might I address the court?

Judge: No, you may not. The defendant has already waived her right to witnesses.

Jessica: Bonnie? Well, then, your honor, I don't want to speak as a witness, I would like to speak as the defendant's mother.

Judge: Ms. Griffin, you are wasting my time.

Jessica: Your honor, I know you to be fair. And in order for you to be fair, I think you need to hear what I have to say.

Judge: The court will hear you. You may proceed.

Jessica: Thank you.

Rose: Get away from me! Paul!

Paul: Stop, he works for me.

Rose: What does he do for you? Does he scare people for you? Hello.

Paul: Yeah, he's a bodyguard.

Rose: What? For me? Really? Oh. Maybe you should ask me about that first, don't you think?

Paul: I tried to. You wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise.

Rose: Oh, that's a shocker. I know you meant well and everything, but the bone-crusher -- whatever your name is -- Bluto over there, I'm sure you graduated at the top of your class.

Crater: The name is Crater.

Rose: Hello.

Paul: Crater, thank you. If you don't mind, maybe you can wait outside. We'll let you know when we need you.

Crater: Yes, sir. Nice meeting you, Ms. DíAngelo.

Rose: Oh, nice to meet you. He's very polite. Very nice, very nice. No, I canít. I can't give in, I'm sorry.

Paul: What do you mean, giving in? What's giving in?

Rose: Whoever left me that message? I can't let 'em get to me. You know? If I do that, then they are getting the best of me.

Paul: Rose, it's just a temporary precaution. And if nothing happens, there's no harm, right?

Rose: There is to me.

Paul: What?

Rose: Because I can't just disappear. You know? I'm gonna go to Paris. I don't have any friends and a family there. I don't speak the language Ė itís okay, because I'm gonna rely on you for everything, which is wonderful, we're doing it for a good reason. But in the meantime, if I let you fight all my battles while we're here, then who am I? I mean, who have I become then? Where have I gone?

Paul: The last thing that I ever want you to do, Rose, is change. I always want you to be the woman that I know and love. And I respect your independence, but don't you want to be around to enjoy it? I mean, this is as much for my comfort as it is for yours.

Rose: I'd almost forgotten.

Paul: What, what'd you forget?

Rose: How much you love me.

Lily: Paul is lying. About what?

Dusty: Paris. A future with Rose. The list goes on.

Lily: How do you know that?

Dusty: Well, Paul has been spreading a lot of publicity about how he and Rose are shooting off to Paris after their marriage. This is a lot of hot air, isn't it? For something that's not gonna go down?

Lily: How do you know that?

Dusty: 'Cause Iíve been investigating. There's this agency in Paris that registers every lease in that city. And there is no record of Paul Ryan taking any property there.

Lily: Maybe the real estate agent hasn't registered it yet.

Dusty: No, I've called every major real estate agency in that town, and none of them have a record of Paul Ryan closing any property deals, I'll tell you that.

Lily: Okay.

Dusty: Do you know what that means?

Lily: No, I don't.

Dusty: It means that Paul knew that he had to sweep Rose off her feet, so he played it up big and made her some crazy promises. Now, you throw Paris into that mix, how could she say no? This is a very cushy setup. One that will only increase the blow when he decides to kick her teeth in. And you're telling me you're not worried about this?

Lily: Actually, I am worried -- about you.

Alison: I know that this isn't something that you want to hear. And believe me, it's not something that I want to tell you, either, but -- sooner or later you're gonna have to know, so -- I guess that it's just better that I tell you now.

Chris: Alison, what is it?

Alison: Well, remember when --

Nurse: Congratulations, Dr. Hughes. All the best.

Alison: All the best about what?

Chris: I'll tell you in a minute. What did you want to say?

Alison: Is it what you said you wanted to tell me last night?

Chris: Yes.

Alison: Well, then, go ahead. Mine can wait.

Chris: Okay. I accepted the position at Philadelphia Children's.

Alison: You're moving to Philadelphia for sure?

Chris: It's in the Pediatric ICU. It's exactly what I've been looking for.

Alison: Well, when are you leaving?

Chris: Today. They're short-staffed, and they wanted me to start as soon as I can.

Alison: What about your job here?

Chris: I spoke with my dad and he's talking to the board so they'll clear my release.

Alison: Wow. Everything is happening so fast.

Chris: I know. Just a couple of weeks ago, I --

Alison: You told me about that hospital before. Didn't you say it was one of the best places for children in the country?

Chris: Yes, that's why I wanted to do my internship there. But they turned down my application, which is why I came back to Oakdale. But now that they're coming to me, guess there's no reason for me to stick around here.

Alison: I'm sorry, Chris, but I'm afraid that there is.

Katie: Well, it's not my place to question Bob Hughes, but --

Mike: But he is my doctor. He said I can take care of myself.

Katie: Well, I'm sorry, but I'm not gonna let you do that.

Mike: You're refusing to leave my house?

Katie: No, just until I know that you're better -- for sure.

Mike: You think I don't know what this is about? Hm? You're the one who hit me. You're still feeling guilty about it. And taking care of me was a way to feel better about that, and you're not ready to give it up.

Katie: That's -- close.

Mike: What'd I miss?

Katie: You're -- a friend, Mike. I care about you.

Mike: A real friend would've kept his mouth shut. I should not have told you how I feel about you.

Katie: Of course you should! You needed to find out if I felt the same way.

Mike: I forced the issue, all right? And that didn't help either of us. That's old news. Look, you know how much -- you know how much I appreciate what you've done for me. But I just -- I think we need to take a break from each other.

Katie: How big a break did you have in mind?

Mike: I mean, I still think that we can see each other sometimes. Whatever you felt that you owed me, you've paid me back a million times over.

Katie: But Mike, this is not just about repaying some debt.

Mike: Then what is it about?

Katie: It's about -- you're not gonna insist that I put it into words, are you?

Mike: Yes, I am.

Alison: I know that this job means a lot to you. But career isn't everything and, you know, sometimes things happen that you don't expect.

Chris: Alison, if I'm supposed to know what you're talking about, I'm sorry, but I donít.

Alison: Do I have to spell it out for you?

Chris: Alison, you said that there was a reason that I had to stay in Oakdale. Don't make me guess, just tell me.

Alison: Well -- your family. I mean, it's been like a really hard year for them. I would think that they would want you to stick around.

Chris: I can't make decisions based on what my family wants.

Alison: Right. You've gotta think about yourself. And this move is the best thing that could've happened to you.

Chris: One of the best things. Well, you've heard my news; we never got around to what you wanted to tell me.

Alison: Oh, nothing. Now that you're leaving, it doesn't really matter.

Chris: Of course it does, Alison. Please. Tell me.

Alison: I -- I was -- wanted to tell you that I -- I was thinking about wanting to quit my job here.

Chris: Why?

Alison: Well, you've been so mad at me since you found me with that guy, so I thought it'd be better if we didn't run into each other. But now that you're not gonna be here, I guess I'll be able to keep working here for -- as long as I can.

Chris: That's great. Really, 'cause Iíd hate you to change your life around because of me.

Alison: And I feel the same way. So -- I guess -- then that's it, then?

Chris: Not quite. There's something else I need to say.

Dusty: What did you mean by you're worried about me? You think I'm crazy with jealousy or something?

Lily: You gonna tell me jealousy has nothing to do with this?

Dusty: I'm not trying to take Rose away from Paul for myself. I'm doing this 'cause I care about her.

Lily: As a friend.

Dusty: Why dissect my feelings when the bigger question is, why would Paul lie to his fiancťe about where they're gonna live after marriage?

Lily: You were up all night trying to figure out if Paul signed a lease. It's not about him, it's about you. You want to break them up -- Dusty.

Dusty: Lily --

Lily: Hmm?

Dusty: I think he's really gonna hurt her. You understand? I said it when she accepted his proposal, and its happening.

Lily: Why -- because you can't find out if Paul signed a lease from thousands of miles away. You don't think that sounds far-fetched? Come on.

Dusty: Let me ask you a question. Do you think that Paul has changed in the past year?

Lily: Well, if he has, it's partly because of you.

Dusty: Paul used to be a straight shooter.

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Dusty: Not anymore. You don't believe me; take a look at these papers.

Lily: What is it?

Dusty: It's notes, faxes -- I documented every single phone call. And check it out --

Lily: It's in French. You don't speak French. It's a foreign country. Maybe you missed a detail or two.

Dusty: Go to Paul yourself and ask him to show you a lease.

Lily: No, I can't, I canít. I cannot get involved in this, I'm sorry.

Dusty: I called you because I know you love your sister. You'd do anything to take a stand for her, look after her. Your sister's life's at stake. You think about that.

Coming up on "As The World Turns" --

Paul: Okay, what's going on?

Lily: I think we have something serious to discuss.

Katie: Alison, I know how much you care about Chris, but you can't sacrifice yourself for him.

Judge: Ms. Griffin, the floor is yours. Stay on point, or I'll cut you off.

Jessica: Thank you, your honor. I know my daughter had a role in Marshall Travers' death, but it was an accident, your honor, a tragic accident. And I just think I should give you some background so that you can understand why she felt the need to protect Mr. Travers' daughter that night. What I'm about to say shouldn't be dismissed as merely motherly prejudice. I've come to know my daughter with a certain degree of objectivity. And I know that she is not perfect. And I know that she has made mistakes, but she is an incredible woman, your honor. She is intelligent and courageous, and most of all, loving. For those she loves, there's no limit to how far she'll go. And I truly believe that she loves Marshall Travers' daughter as much as if she had given birth to that child herself. Sarah was a child that no one wanted, and my daughter gave her a whole new life. Time after time, she put this child that was slipping through the cracks ahead of everything -- ahead of herself, ahead of her family. She did everything in her power for the good of that child, and that's why she was in Marshall Travers' room the night he died. Because of her love for Sarah, and the need to save her from a man she knew to be dangerous.

Judge: I won't remind you again. This hearing is about Ms. Mckechnie, not Mr. Travers.

Jessica: I'm sorry, your honor, but I have to disagree. Because it is about Mr. Travers and me. Because I am the one who brought that man into my daughter's life. Because of my bad judgment, we're here today, your honor, and I am begging you, please, don't ruin my child's life because of my mistake.

Chris: Alison, I don't want to say good-bye to you like -- like we're just two people who happened to work in the same hospital together. Okay, once upon a time, you and I meant a lot to each other.

Alison: Everything, Chris, everything.

Chris: And even though that nothing permanent came out of this, I want you to know that I think that you are an incredible person, and I wouldn't change a thing.

Alison: And neither would I. No, no. No, if I could, I would change one thing. I would make myself about two years older. Because you were probably right all along. I was a little young for you.

Chris: So you think that that's why things didn't work out?

Alison: I don't know. I don't think I know much of anything right now. But I know that I want you to be happy. And I know that you've worked so hard, and I want you to have everything -- everything that you deserve.

Chris: You take care of yourself, Alison.

Alison: You, too.

Rose: Okay, now, I'm definitely leaving. And if it means that much to you, I will let Tiny come with me.

Paul: Crater.

Rose: Crater.

Paul: His name's Crater.

Rose: Great name, Crater. All right, just tell him not to get too close, 'cause, you know -- whatcha looking at?

Paul: The building over there with the antenna on it.

Rose: Which one?

Paul: Right there.

Rose: Oh, yeah.

Paul: It used to be a miniature golf course.

Rose: Really?

Paul: And then next to it, that steel, glass number? That two story building, it's the DMV. I took my diver's test in that parking lot when I was 17 years old.

Rose: Oh. You having doubts about leaving now?

Paul: No, Iíve done it before.

Rose: What about Will? Huh? You been talking to him about visiting us in the summer?

Paul: Yeah, he says he's still up for it.

Rose: Good. That's good, right? That's progress. Don't you think?

Paul: The two weeks he's in Paris, I know he's okay. It's the rest of the year that he's here I'm not so sure about.

Rose: You can call him every day, you can e-mail him every day. You know, pictures.

Paul: You're right. Will's gonna be fine. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have brought any of this stuff up.

Rose: That's okay. Because I've been having thoughts, too.

Paul: You're having doubts?

Rose: No, no doubts. Just -- no, getting out of here, that's the best thing. I -- you know, Will is not the only kid that's gonna come visit us in Paris.

Paul: Why? Who's coming?

Rose: Luciano. Yeah, Luciano.

Paul: Did you already invite him?

Rose: No, not yet. And Luke and Faith. Maybe Lucy. And Aaron could come. How many bedrooms do we have? Because I want to make sure we have room enough for everybody.

Paul: We'll talk about our houseguests when you're done with your appointment.

Rose: Okay.

Paul: All right?

Rose: You're right, I gotta jump. Okay. So, how does this work? When we go shopping, do you carry the bags?

Crater: Yes, ma'am.

Rose: I like this. This is gonna work out for me very well, very well. Well, try to keep up.

[Knock at door]

Lily: Hi.

Paul: Hi, Lily. You just missed Rose. She's down the hall.

Lily: No, I didnít. I waited for her and that man to leave.

Paul: Uh, okay. What's going on?

Lily: I think we have something serious to discuss.

Mike: Katie?

Katie: Mm-hmm?

Mike: I don't want to sit here all day.

Katie: Okay. Go home. I'll meet you back at your house.

Mike: I want to know why you can't stop taking care of me.

Katie: I don't want you to relapse. It happens all the time. You just got your cast off.

Mike: I'm not gonna stop going to physical therapy. There's no way I am gonna have a relapse.

Katie: Oh, yes, there is. I'm looking at him.

Mike: What do you mean?

Katie: You're reckless.

Mike: I promise I will be careful.

Katie: You know what? I'm not gonna argue about this. I'm staying, and that's that. Now, I am going to meet Alison at the hospital. If you want a ride, then just wait here.

Mike: That's all right. I can catch a ride with one of the guys on my crew. But tomorrow, I start driving again. So --

Katie: Oh, no, no, no, no. Not on my watch. Your reflexes need time to heal. So, just go home, get in bed. I'm gonna get some chicken for dinner and a video for later.

Mike: Katie, why are you making this so difficult?

Katie: Stop arguing with me, okay? Your body has to be peaceful so it can heal. And, here, eat this. You need some vitamins and minerals.

Ben: You were brilliant.

Jessica: I'm just glad I got to say it. Whether it does any good, we'll see.

Bonnie: Thank you.

Judge: Will the defendant please rise? Over the last year, you have been a danger to yourself and to others. You were arrested for illegal possession of a firearm, now manslaughter. In both cases, you plead guilty, which leads me to believe you're just waiting to be punished. Well, I'm going to oblige you, Ms. Mckechnie. But not as severely as I had initially intended. Given the comments from your mother, I'm sentencing you to six months in a minimum security prison. Mr. Hughes, do you have anything to add?

Tom: No, sir.

Judge: I'm also ordering that, for the duration of your sentence, that you have no contact whatsoever with the minor child of Marshall Travers. Have you anything to say?

Bonnie: No, sir.

Judge: Then this court is adjourned.

Bailiff: All rise.

Dusty: Harold, Dusty. I was down there just a couple of minutes ago with Lily Snyder. I left a bunch of papers on the table. Did you happen to notice, did Lily look at the papers after I left? Thank you, Harold. You're a good man.

[Knocking at door] who is it?

Molly: It's me.

Dusty: There she is. The golden girl has arrived. The party can begin.

Molly: Ah, don't be so sure about that. The electrician stopped by the club to check on the broken light behind table four. And he thinks the entire wiring has to be -- you think this funny?

Dusty: No.

Molly: Then why are you smiling?

Dusty: Am I smiling? Sorry. Go ahead.

Molly: No. You first.

Dusty: What about?

Molly: Oh, I don't know. You tell me. What's going on?

Dusty: Well, I had this little project in the works, and it was a little shaky to begin with. But now, things have definitely taken a turn for the better.

Paul: Is everything all right?

Lily: Dusty had me show up at the Lakeview. And it seems that he was up all night investigating that lease that you have for your apartment in Paris.

Paul: Why would he do that?

Lily: He thinks you're lying to Rose and everybody else and that you have some plan to do something horrible to Rose. I know, I know.

Paul: I -- I thought Dusty was all right with Rose and I getting married. I guess I was wrong.

Lily: Yeah. You know, it seems like it's a bit of an obsession with Dusty about this lease. I know it's kind of out there. But I gotta tell you, his research was -- it was kind of thorough.

Paul: Really? Paris is a big city. I doubt even Dusty could cover it one night.

Lily: I know, that's what I said. I mean, he doesn't even speak French or anything. So I said -- so, I was just wondering, if you could just tell -- I mean, you rented an apartment there, didn't you?

Paul: Yes, Lily.

[Lily sighs] of course. Rose and I were talking about it this morning. We'd really like for Luke to come visit.

Lily: Oh, good. And the other two? I think they would like that very much. Okay. We'll talk about it.

Paul: We'll make arrangements as soon as we're settled.

Lily: Okay.

Paul: Hey, listen, as much as I'm enjoying talking to you, believe it or not, I actually do have someplace I got to go in 20 minutes.

Lily: Oh, I'm sorry. I don't want this to come out the wrong way, but would you show me the lease? Would you mind?

Chris: I miss you already, Alison.

[Alison crying]

Katie: Alison, what happened?

Alison: Oh, Katie, I'm so glad you're here.

Katie: Why? What happened? Did Chris freak out when you told him you were pregnant?

Alison: I didn't tell him.

Katie: Why not? It's Chrisís responsibility just as much as yours.

Alison: No, you don't understand. He's moving to Philadelphia.

Katie: What? Why there?

Alison: He got his dream job at a great hospital. And they want him to start right away.

Katie: Well, that's all the more reason to tell him about the baby then.

Alison: Yeah, and ruin his whole life? Everything he's ever worked for? I can't do that to him, Katie

Katie: Alison, I know how much you care about Chris. But you can't sacrifice yourself for him.

Alison: I don't want to force him to be with me if he doesn't love me. That's worse than being alone.

Katie: Telling him what happened is not the same as pressuring him. Believe me.

Alison: I don't want to hold him down. It's like -- it's like he's been waiting his whole life for an offer like this. I mean, he should be lucky that they picked him. And now he's supposed to just give that up?

Katie: Yeah, but what about what you're giving up? You shouldn't be the only one to make sacrifices, Alison?

Alison: It'll be the last thing I'll ever be able to do for him.

Katie: Please, don't say that.

Alison: No, Katie, my mind is made up. Chris will never know I'm carrying his child.

Jessica: Sweetheart, this could've been so much worse.

Bonnie: Yeah, I know.

Ben: I'm just glad it all worked out so well.

Bonnie: Has it?

Jessica: Honey, I have seen this judge read out sentences that would make your blood run cold. You caught him on a good day. You should be very, very grateful.

[Bonnie sobbing]

Bonnie: I am. I am, for you.

Jessica: I know you didn't want me to speak, but I just couldn't --

Bonnie: Mom --

Jessica: -- Sit there.

Bonnie: Mom -- I was wrong again.

Jessica: You listen to me. I meant every word that I said. To love the way you do with commitment and passion, that is a gift to the world. And you should never ever be ashamed of that.

Bonnie: A man is dead because of me, Mom. Six months, six years, nothing's ever really gonna change that.

Jessica: Shh, shh. You just have to stay strong, okay?

Bonnie: No, I can handle the six months. What I don't think I can handle is not even being able to talk to Sarah.

Jessica: Sweetheart, Sarah will be fine. You have to worry about yourself right now. Okay?

Bonnie: But she's gonna go back to that shelter, grieving for her father. And the closest thing she's ever had to a mother -- I won't even be able to say a word. She's gonna need me more now more than ever.

Tom: All right, let's get Bonnie down to the police station. They'll process her there before transferring her downstate.

Jessica: Tom, will I be able to see her?

Tom: Sure. Come by the station. I'll make sure that I arrange some time.

Jessica: Thank you.

Ben: Thanks, Tom. Appreciate it.

Tom: No problem. So, let's go.

Bonnie: Well, I'm going to be expecting a party when I get out. I'll send you some menu suggestions, okay?

Jessica: Oh, God. Bonnie is -- she's not exaggerating. The hardest part for her is going to be being away from Sarah.

Ben: Jess, there's nothing else that you can do.

Jessica: But if she could just see -- I just know that she'd feel better if she could just see her one last time. I mean, maybe if we're careful, we can --

Ben: No, no, no. The judge said no contact.

Jessica: I have to make this happen, Ben. I have to.

Molly: So what is this project about? Because something tells me it's not a book report.

Dusty: Details don't matter. I'm in a good mood. Let's make the most of it, huh?

Molly: Just as soon as you tell me what's going on here.

Dusty: What do you mean?

Molly: I mean, I want to know if it's illegal or not so I get a chance to shoot you before the cops do.

Dusty: Oh. You know, you more than anyone knows how I feel about Paul Ryan, right?

Molly: Yeah. Don't like him. Don't trust him. A little jealous of him when it comes to Rose.

Dusty: Nonsense.

Molly: Right.

Dusty: Anyway, I've been waiting for him to screw up. And now he has.

Molly: Says you.

Dusty: No, I got proof that Paul Ryanís a lying dog. And Rose is going to find out any minute now.

Paul: You want me to show you my lease?

[Paul laughs] you know, you gonna whip out a detector and strap me down?

Lily: No, no, no. Look, it's not that I don't believe you.

Paul: No, it is that you don't believe me. Dusty showed you some piece of paper, I'm guessing, and now all of the sudden you don't trust me.

Lily: Now, wait. Wait a minute, I'm not accusing you of anything. But, obviously, there's some confusion here. So why don't we just talk about it and clear it up?

Paul: I'm not confused. Rose isn't confused. The only person confused here is you and apparently Dusty.

Lily: You're avoiding my question. Do you have a lease for a place in Paris?

Rose: What's going on? Why are you grilling my fiancť?

On the next "As The World Turns" --

Molly: Suppose your plan works -- Rose is a wreck. All she wants are your big, strong arms wrapped around her. She's full of forgiveness and wants you back. What does Dusty do?

Lily: What'd you find out?

Holden: What I've known all along. Dusty Donovan can't separate fact from fiction.
