Kim: Hi.

Lucy: Hi, Mrs. Hughes.

Kim: Aaron, hi.

Aaron: Hi, Mrs. Hughes. . How are you?

Kim: Fine, thanks. How are you guys?

Lucy: Good. Um, are you meeting Chris and his dad here for some lunch? It is a popular spot with the hospital crowd.

Kim: Well, you're half right. Actually, I -- I am meeting Bob, but heís been ... and as for Chris, I guess you haven't heard. He's moved.

Aaron: Where?

Kim: To Philadelphia. He's taken a position at Children's Hospital there. Actually, Bob and I think it was a really snap judgment on his part. We're very concerned about him. We have a feeling that his leaving has something to do with Alison.

Lucy: Didn't he tell you?

Kim: Well, other than the fact that he was terribly upset. Why, did -- do you have some kind of insight into what happened between the two of them?

Lucy: Well, I don't really know why Chris and Alison broke up, but I think there was another guy involved.

[Alison remembering]

Chris: Okay, okay, okay. I'll go get them.

Alison: No, no, no, no, no! Chris, please don't leave me.

Chris: Hey, you can come with me.

Alison: No, we canít. Everything is so perfect. If we leave now, something absolutely terrible is gonna happen.

Chris: Terrible like what?

Alison: I don't know. You'll run into some intern, and you'll have to go back to the hospital for some terrible emergency. Please, Chris.

Chris: That's not gonna happen.

Alison: Well, it always happens, please. Chris, let's not even take that chance, okay?

Susan: Oh! The line at that supermarket was insane. How are you feeling? You feeling any better, sweetie?

Alison: Yes.

Susan: I got you some apple juice. You have to drink plenty of fluids.

Alison: Ah, maybe later.

Susan: Okay, you and I have to have a talk.

Alison: Mom, I'm fine.

Susan: No, you're not fine. You've been on that sofa for days; you practically cringe at the sight of food. Honey, I'm a doctor. You can't fool me. It's painfully obvious what's wrong with you.

Rose: I just hope when I marry Paul, I'm as happy as you guys are.

Emily: Happy, Rose, is a work in progress.

Carly: Yeah. Have you ever been to any of my weddings, Rose?


Rose: Yeah, but you made it, you and Jack. And so have you and Hal.

Emily: Yeah, but believe me, we still have our, you know, problems.

Carly: Yes, of course you do. Who doesn't?

Rose: If I could only ship Barbara off to Mars --

Emily: Oh, I'd pay the freight.

Rose: Then my life would be perfect.

Emily: Mine, too.

Carly: All right, well, here's to life on Mars.

Emily: Ching, ching.

Rosanna: Excuse me, ladies, but I have to go. My attorney just called. I have to sign off on an acquisition.

Rose: You leaving already?

Rosanna: Yes, I apologize. Um, I'll try to double back. I shouldn't be long.

Carly: Well, we'll save some champagne for you.


Rosanna: All right, do. Thank you. See you in a bit. Excuse me. I said excuse me.

Rose: Don't mind Mount Crater.

Rosanna: Who is this person?

Rose: Um, he's my bodyguard. I don't make a move without him.

Rosanna: Ah.

Carly: Okay, Rose, I think it's about time you told all of us why exactly you need a bodyguard.

Rose: I got a nasty phone call.

Rosanna: What, you were threatened? Are the police involved?

Rose: Oh, please. I mean, come on, let's be real. I don't need the cops to tell me there's of people in this town who'd rather see me dead than married to Paul, right?

Dusty: Come on, come on, pick up.

[Answering machine]

Molly: Hey, it's Molly McKinnon. Leave a message, and I'll get back to you.


Dusty: It's me. Call my cell. Oh, back so soon?

Barbara: That call I overheard was about Paul and Rose, wasn't it? Something big is happening, isn't it, Dusty? Tell me what it is. Maybe I can help.

Paul: You need to get out of here, Molly, or I'm gonna call the police.

Molly: Not until I see Rose.

Paul: You -- you think that that gizmo is mine and that I used it to call Rose and threaten her? Why -- why would I do that?

Molly: You tell me.

Paul: I bought that for Will.

Molly: For Will?

Paul: Mm-hmm.

Molly: Yeah.

Paul: Kid having a hard time lately. He's into gadgets. I thought he'd get a kick out of it. What are you doing here anyway, Molly? Shouldn't you be at Metro before Dusty sells your part of the place away to someone else?

Molly: I think you called Rose, used this thing to scare her deliberately. I know that, you know that. As soon as I'm finished with Rose, she'll know it, too.

Ben: Jessica.

Jessica: I thought you had a consult.

Ben: I rescheduled.

Jessica: Are you still angry?

Ben: No.

Jessica: I understand why you didn't want to come with me.

Ben: Still trying to understand why you feel you had to.

Jessica: I don't know if I can answer that. It's so empty.

Ben: What did you expect?

Jessica: I don't know. Bonnie's in prison, a man is dead, and no one cares enough to even come and say good-bye.

Ben: So how was Bonnie when you talked to her?

Jessica: Well, it's her first day at the women's prison. You know, she's shell-shocked. From the moment Marshall came to Oakdale that changed everything about my life.

Ben: He can't hurt you anymore, Jess.

Jessica: I wanted him gone, I wanted him out of my life, but I didn't want this.

Ben: I know. Let's -- let's go say a prayer and go home.

Jessica: What do we pray for?

Ben: Pray for a new beginning, for Sarah, for Bonnie and for you, without Marshall Travers.

Jessica: Okay. I'm ready.

Rosanna: Are you sure this man is qualified to protect you?

R rose: Come on. Paul would only hire the best.

Rosanna: Well, I'm sure that's true, but if someone out there is intent on stopping your wedding --

Rose: I can handle 'em. I can handle everybody from big momma down now that I got Crater riding shotgun.

Rosanna: Well, I'm -- I'm glad Paul is taking care of things.

Rose: You know, he's the only one in my life that's ever looked out for me, other than my pop. I can't believe it. I don't know what I would do without him.

Rosanna: If you need anything, if there's anything I can do --

Rose: Oh, thank you. That's nice. Yeah, I'll let you know.

Rosanna: All right. I'm not sure how long my meeting's gonna take, but if I don't get back, I'll call you later, all right?

Rose: Okay.

Rosanna: Okay.

Rose: Thanks.

Rosanna: You bet.

Lily: Mitzi? Everything okay?

Mitzi: Yeah. I was in la-la land.

Lily: Something wrong?

Mitzi: No, no. Why -- why would anything be wrong?

Lily: You've just been very quiet.

Mitzi: Well, it's Rose's day.

Lily: Yes, it is, and you've barely said two words to her.

Mitzi: I know. There's not much left to say.

Lily: You're still upset about her selling the shop?

Mitzi: Well, she's got to do what she's got to do.

Lily: Rose, she said that she was gonna help you start your own.

Mitzi: You know, I may be broke, Lil, but I've got my pride.

Lily: What difference does it make if you open your own shop or run the Roller Palace?

Mitzi: It's a big difference, okay? I helped build the Roller Palace. It wouldn't have been just a handout.

Lily: Okay. Well, maybe you should talk to Rose. Maybe you could still work something out.

Mitzi: Thanks, Lil, but it's too late. So what's going on with the shop? Buyout a done deal?

Lily: Well, they want to close as soon as they audit the books.

Mitzi: Oh, yeah, right. Rose told me about that audit thing. Why did they have to do that again?

Lily: Just to make sure that the expenses don't outweigh the revenues. And they're using my accountant. He's excellent.

Mitzi: Nothing but the best for Rose. Um, it's been nice chatting, but I've got to go.

Lily: Wait a minute. No, no, no, no, no. You can't leave yet. We haven't even cut the cake. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have brought up the shop. I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to upset you.

Mitzi: No, no. Why would the shop upset me? Um, why are we standing around here? You know, I need more punch. You want some?

Barbara: Come on, we can't talk out here, okay?

Dusty: You got two minutes.

Barbara: Why the rush?

Dusty: None of your business.

Barbara: Okay, what did Molly find out about Paul and Rose?

Dusty: What's wrong with you? You were listening outside?

Barbara: Of course I was listening. And I don't care what it is that she found out, so long as it keeps Paul from marrying Rose. I me, come on, it's us against them.

Dusty: I'm not against Rose.

Barbara: Oh, right. You're protecting her, you're rescuing her. Whatever it's called I don't care, so long as they don't end up together.

Dusty: Barbara -- Barbara, you and I are not a team. Now go home, would you?

Barbara: To what?

Dusty: To that little redhead called your kid. You know the one that can still be around you for more than five minutes.

Barbara: I'm not allowed to see Will anymore.

Dusty: Why? What happened?

Barbara: I've lost visitation. I've lost just about everything.

Dusty: What'd you do?

Barbara: Nothing to deserve losing my son.

Dusty: Well, then go fix it. I mean, stop messing around with Rose and put your focus on being a real mother to this kid.

Barbara: I canít. Hal's taken out a restraining order. And do you know how that's killing me, knowing my son is across town wanting to see his mother, needing his mother?

Dusty: I -- I didn't know about that.

Barbara: I feel like I'm losing both of my sons.

Dusty: Barbara -- just stay out of my way, all right, and then maybe this whole wedding thing won't come off.

Barbara: Hi, Jen, it's Mom. Uh, yeah, I was hoping that maybe we could see each other for a moment, maybe meet at Al's. Well, I don't really want to talk about it on the phone, and I need a favor from you. I can't do this without you.

Paul: That -- that doesn't make any sense. I mean, even if I did, for whatever reason, do something like that, why would I be so stupid as to leave the evidence lying around? You found it. Rose lives here. She could just as easily have found it.

Molly: I think you wanted to convince Rose that she needed a bodyguard so you could see what she's doing and who she was doing it all hours of the day.

Paul: If I wanted to spy on Rose, why would I be so obvious as to hire a guy the size of Mt. Everest?

Molly: The bigger, the better? To show her how much you love her, Paul, hmm?

Paul: You've been spending so much time with Dusty, you're starting to sound like him. It's a toy, Molly! It's just a toy!

Molly: Let's see how Rose likes your taste in toys, Paul.

Paul: I don't get it. What's in it for you? What's your angle?

Molly: My angle is the truth, the chance -- a chance to prove I'm right.

Paul: You need to be right about a voice changer?

Molly: No, not about this, about you. You know, there's a few things that women know. They just know. Like that three-inch heels hurt like hell by the end of a long night, and that guys who hire a bodyguard have something to hide.

Paul: I love Rose. I'm in love with Rose. I would never hide anything from her.

Molly: But this toy gives you a credibility problem, Paul.

Paul: I have a credibility problem? Molly, don't you think it's a little pathetic for you to help the man that you love go be with another woman?

Susan: I know you don't want to talk about it, and I know why. But I can't let this go on.

Alison: Mom, I wanted to tell you, I just -- I just didn't know how.

Susan: I know. It's not easy to tell somebody how much it hurts to lose the guy you love. When I found out about Rick, I just wanted to give up on life, too. I wanted to lock all the doors, never leave the house. It was torture going back to work. I was sure everybody was talking about me behind my back about what a pathetic mess I'd made of my life. So do you know what I did?

Alison: What?

Susan: I tried to focus on all the good things left in my life, like you and Emily and Daniel and my work. It just takes time. I know you don't believe that, but one of these days, you'll wake up, and everything will seem so much better.

Alison: Time won't fix this. For me, time will only make everything worse.

Kim: I'm sorry. I'm really intruding on your date.

Lucy: No, you're not intruding at all.

Aaron: No, it's no problem.

Kim: Wait. Do either one of you have any idea who Alison has been seeing besides Chris?

Lucy: No, but Chris did show up at my Halloween party trying to find out.

[Aaron remembering]

Alison: It would've been great if Chris was angry because he still wanted me.

But he just didn't like me being with somebody else.

Aaron: I'll bet you're wrong about that.

Alison: What, did you think he was jealous?

Aaron: Are you kidding? I would be.

Alison: Really?

Aaron: Absolutely.

Alison: Well, maybe I should've told him it was you. And then every time he saw

you, it would tear his heart out.

Lucy: Right, Aaron?

Aaron: I'm sorry, what?

Lucy: I was just telling Ms. Hughes that Chris was really angry when he came to my party. He was sure Alison had someone else, but she denied it.

Kim: So do you believe her?

Lucy: I don't know. You can't really be too sure with Alison.

Kim: Well, I guess Alison meant a lot more to Chris than Bob and I realized, and I suppose with everything so unresolved when he left, that does explain why he was so terribly upset.

Lucy: I wouldn't be surprised.

Kim: That will make it very hard for him to get started again in Philadelphia. All right, I'm gonna let you two go back to your date. I'm gonna run an errand before Bob comes.

Lucy: Well, if I hear anything, I'll let you know.

Kim: Oh, thanks so much. I appreciate it. You two take care.

Aaron: Okay.

Kim: Bye-bye.

Aaron: You know, Chris would be really upset if he knew his mom was getting involved in his love life. You know, guys don't like that very much.

Lucy: She's just worried.

Aaron: If Chris wanted her to know, Lucy, he would have told her.

Lucy: Chris saw a wristwatch in the hotel. He wouldn't have made something like that up

Aaron: The guy was crazy at the Halloween party. He barely knew what he was saying. You know, it's -- it's none of our business anyway.

Lucy: But aren't you curious? Okay, I mean, Alison loves Chris, right?

Aaron: Right.

Lucy: And he obviously cares about her, or he wouldn't have gotten so upset. I just don't understand why Alison didn't come clean about whatever it is she did, and then they could've worked it out.

Aaron: I don't know.

Lucy: Something about Alisonís story just doesn't make sense.

Aaron: Lucy, stay out of it.

Lucy: We should go see her.

Aaron: I don't think that's a good idea.

Lucy: I'm not going to give her the third degree; I just want to talk to her.

Aaron: Okay, fine. We'll go see her. Okay.

Lucy: Great.

Aaron: All right.

Lucy: Come on.

Molly: In love, me? No. No, after the year I've had, the last thing I need is more heartache.

Paul: Well, then you explain to me why you broke into my place and rifled through my things if for no other reason than to impress your business partner.

Molly: For a friend.

Paul: Dusty doesn't have any friends. He has women that he sleeps with and women that he wants to sleep with and women that he slept with.

Molly: Rose included?

Paul: He keeps women like trophies. You, Molly, of all people should know that. You don't see the big picture here, do you? Rose and I are together, finally. Dusty's not in the picture anymore. He's free. He's all yours.

Molly: And what happens to Rose?

Paul: No, the real question is what happens to Molly? I don't get it. I mean, you used to have such great taste. I mean, Jake -- Jake was a good guy. All right? He didn't lie and cheat and steal and string women along to get another woman into bed.

Molly: You barely knew Jake. So just cut the head games, okay, Paul?

Paul: They're not head games, Molly. I'm trying to get you to understand something. You are -- you're beautiful. You are. And you're smart, and you deserve better than Dusty. And I don't know what it is. Is it just that you're just so lonely for a man's attention that you're willing to throw away a shot at maybe having the real thing? Instead, you're gonna settle for whatever it is that Dusty Donovan --

Molly: Stop it!

Paul: Fine, go ahead. Put yourself out on a limb; break your own heart again. Dusty's not worth it.

Coming up on "As The World Turns" --

Lucy: Well, if this guy's the reason you and Chris broke up, then maybe you should call him.

Paul: I did something really stupid, and I think I'm losing my mind.

Sarah: I just want to say -- the Halloween party was the best day of my life. You and me and Bonnie -- we were like a real family. And I don't know why it had to end. I tried to love you, Daddy, and I -- I know you tried, too. And I know now that you really wanted me.

Jessica: My heart breaks for that child.

Ben: We should go.

Jessica: She was the first person Bonnie asked about this morning. I just don't feel right just leaving. I'll be back.

Ben: No, Jess --

Jessica: No, no. Sarah --

Sarah: What are you doing here?

Jessica: I think I'm here for the same reason you are.

Sarah: But you hated him.

Jessica: No. No, Sarah. I hated what he did. And this might be hard to believe, but I didn't want any of this to happen. I hoped Marshall would change. But the one thing that I do know is that all he wanted was to be good father to you. And that's what you should remember. You were the single, most important person in his life.

Sarah: I'm ready to go now.

Ben: You know she's hurting.

Jessica: That child has suffered so much loss in her young life. I mean, why would she care what I have to say?

Ben: She needs time to heal, Jess. We all do.

Jessica: Yeah, we do. I'm just not sure if we'll ever have a normal life again, you know?

Ben: Define normal.

Jessica: Simple, quiet.

Ben: Now that's never been normal. But you know, we can work toward that. Together?

Jessica: I don't remember the last time I had the luxury of only thinking about us.

Ben: Yes, well, that is a problem that we're going to take care of, starting now.

Barbara: Hi.

Jennifer: Hi. Hi, what's all this?

Barbara: Lunch.

Jennifer: Who else is coming?

Barbara: Nobody. I didn't know what you wanted, so I ordered all your favorites.

Jennifer: So what is the favor?

Barbara: You look a little thin, honey.

Jennifer: Oh, spit it out, mother. Why am I here?

Barbara: I'm worried about your brother.

Jennifer: Which one?

Barbara: Will.

Jennifer: Well, so am I.

Barbara: Is he all right?

Jennifer: He's Will, Mom. He copes.

Barbara: Does he miss me?

Jennifer: Of course he misses you. Although sometimes, I really wish he didnít.

Barbara: I can't believe your father is doing this to him. A restraining order, treating me like a common criminal?

Jennifer: What other options did he have, mother? You used Will, which is bad enough, but hey, the really scary part is that he let you do it. You know, I don't think Will ever really got over you leaving Dad. He is so eager to make you happy because in the back of his mind, there's this little ray of hope that if he makes you happy enough that Dad will see that and somehow, magically, our whole family will be put back together.

Barbara: He knows that that's impossible, Jen.

Jennifer: In his head he knows. His heart is a whole other story.

Barbara: He needs his mother.

Jennifer: Ha, -- there it is. The punch line. Okay, hit me with it. What's the favor?

Barbara: Okay. Your dad trusts you with Will. So tomorrow, why don't you pick him up and take him to the park for awhile?

Jennifer: And do what, Mom? He's not 3.

Barbara: Okay, then the mall. It doesn't really matter. But you see, then I'll just kind of bump into the two of you.

Jennifer: And then what?

Barbara: And then we'll spend some time together.

Jennifer: How much time?

Barbara: I don't know an hour or two.

Jennifer: And what's Will supposed to tell Dad when he gets home and Dad asks what he did all day?

Barbara: We'll think of something.

Jennifer: We? You, me and Will? We'll put our heads together and cook up a good one? Oh, that's great. That's great. Will gets to tell Dad another lie to cover your back. That's really, really special, Mom. Forget it. I will not help you screw up Will's life anymore than you already have.

Rose: Hey, you practicing being a statue?

Mitzi: I'm just not in a party mood.

Rose: No kidding. Come on, you know, I don't want to keep havin' the same fight with you over and over again. Whatever it is, Mitzi, come on. We'll just deal with it -- right now. I mean, I'm not so into me that I want you to be miserable. Come on?

Mitzi: I'm here, aren't I?

Rose: You know, maybe we should pretend we're back in Atlantic City, you know, sitting on my stoop talking and forgetting about all this wedding madness?

Mitzi: We're not in Jersey, Rose. I mean, no amount of pretending is gonna change things.

Rose: What things?

Mitzi: Just go back to your new friends.

Rose: Ah, now don't start that. They're my friends, but you're my oldest and dearest friend.

Mitzi: Sometimes I wish we'd never left Atlantic City, you know? So we were broke, so we had to live with three other girls. So what? We were happy.

Rose: Mitzi, I'm the happiest I've ever been in my life. And I want you to be happy, too.

Mitzi: How, Rose? By standin' around throwin' rice at you while you go off for good? Have a nice shower, okay? Have a nice life. Send me a postcard from France. I gotta go.

Rose: We're not done talkin' here.

Mitzi: Yes, we are. I always thought I'd be the one to catch your bouquet, now I feel like I have to stand in line for it.

Lily: Mitzi?

[Knock at the door]

Paul: Rosanna. Well, how come you're not at Carly and Jack's --

Rosanna: Oh, the shower. Yes, well, I just came from there.

Paul: Come on in.

Rosanna: Thank you.

Paul: Yeah. Everything all right?

Rosanna: Well, actually I was just about to ask you that. Rose told me that she received a threatening phone call.

Paul: Yes, she did. That's bizarre -- even considering my family's standards.

Rosanna: Yes. I was just wondering if there was anything I could do to help?

Paul: Everything's under control.

Rosanna: Yes, I met your one-man security team.

Paul: Ah, not impressed?

Rosanna: He seemed hard to move.

Paul: Yeah, well.

Rosanna: Look, I'm used to dealing with agencies that work with far more sophisticated techniques, people that you can't detect.

Paul: I think Crater's up to the job. He kinda has to be. I got a lot at stake here.

Rosanna: I'm sorry. I don't mean to upset you.

Paul: You're not.

Rosanna: Is there something wrong? Whatever it is, maybe I can help you. I certainly can understand.

Paul: I don't even understand it myself. Did something really stupid and I think I'm losing my mind.

Dusty: Hey, I left you a ton of messages. Why didn't you call me?

Molly: Sorry, my battery on my cell phone died.

Dusty: Your battery? I ran all the way over to Paulís place. I talked to his doorman, but he told me you had left. What did you find?

Molly: Nothin'. I didn't find anything.

Dusty: You told me you could blow Paul out of the water. Why are you lying to me now? What did you find over at Paulís place?

Ben: If all of this has taught us anything, it's that life is way too short and uncertain. And I love you.

Jessica: And I love you too, babe.

Ben: And I want to marry you. Let's not wait any longer.

Jessica: Well, I don't know if I can plan anything on such short notice.

Ben: Forget the plans. We'll grab a map, and we'll pick a place and we'll take off. Anywhere in the world, anywhere you want to go.

Jessica: You mean elope?

Ben: I mean I want to marry you. I want to be your husband. And I want to love you and take care of you for the rest of my life. So what do you say?

Jessica: I say -- how quickly can you pack your bags?

Jennifer: I am sorry about Will. I really am, but you had him. You had partial custody and visitation. You had a chance to give him a little bit of stability. But that wasn't enough for you. You had to pull him into one of your schemes.

Barbara: How do I sacrifice one child's happiness for another?

Jennifer: Paul is not a child, mother. Will is.

Barbara: Honey, nobody has to know.

Jennifer: It's called a restraining order, mother. It's the law. If I help you with this, I go down with you. Look at me so there is no confusion. Okay? My answer is no. The difference between me and Will is that I am old enough not to care if you don't talk to me for the next two months. Thanks for lunch.

Alison: Hi! What are you guys doing here?

Lucy: Are you okay? We saw your mom outside. She said you weren't feeling well.

Alison: Yeah, I just have the flu or something.

Lucy: Can we come in?

Alison: Sure, sure.

Lucy: You look really wiped out.

Alison: Yeah, there must be something going around. So can I get you guys something to drink?

Aaron: No.

Lucy: Sure.

Alison: Well, there's some soda in the fridge.

Lucy: Aaron can get it. You don't mind, do you?

Aaron: No, no. I'll be right back.

Alison: Nothing for me. My stomach's not so great.

Lucy: We heard about Chris moving. I'm really sorry, Ali.

Alison: Thanks.

Lucy: His mom said he's in Philadelphia.

Alison: Yeah, well, I mean, it's probably better that way, you know? Because at least then we won't run into each other at the hospital every day.

Lucy: What about the other guy?

Alison: I told you there was no other guy.

Lucy: Come on, Alison. You don't have to lie. Chris saw the watch. He wouldn't get that wrong.

Alison: Well, even if he was right, who cares?

Lucy: Well, if this guy's the reason you and Chris broke up, then maybe you should call him.

Aaron: Call who?

Lucy: The other guy Alison met.

Alison: Just forget it. There's no way we're ever getting together again.

Delivery man: Excuse me, Alison Stewart?

Susan: No, I'm her mother.

Delivery man: Delivery from the Westford Regency. Will you please sign?

Susan: Why is my daughter getting something from the Westford Regency? Do you know what's in this?

Delivery man: It's listed as a watch.

Susan: Okay, thank you. Good as they say?

Susan: This is so nice.

Alison: What's with the envelope?

Susan: It's for you, from the Westford Regency Hotel. They said it's a watch.

Alison: I'll take it.

Susan: Okay.

Lucy: This watch is yours.

Rose: Oh, thanks for trying to cheer me up.

Emily: Is it working?

Carly: If you have to ask --

 Lily: I'm sure Mitzi feels bad.

Carly: She could use a few lessons in party manners.

Rose: She can't help it. You know, after everything we've been through, I'm sure she'll get over it. I'm sure of it.

Carly: Maybe sooner than you think.

Rose: What are you doing back here?

Mitzi: I just came back to say I'm sorry for being such a party pooper.

Rose: It's okay. it's okay.

Mitzi: No, it's not. We never walked away from each other before. You know, we always stayed and fought it out no matter what.

Rose: Exactly. I just want my best friend back, that's all.

Mitzi: Me, too. That's why I gotta tell you what's really goin' on.

Dusty: You look like you need it.

Molly: Thanks.

Dusty: Are you ready to talk now? What's going on? Did he do something to you? Did he threaten you?

Molly: No.

Dusty: 'Cause you and I, you know -- we're a team. We're partners. I was worried about you. I thought maybe something bad happened. And then I thought no, not you. You're a tough cookie. You can handle anything, including Paul Ryan. Mol, whatever it is, whatever you got, we're gonna use it. We're gonna bring Paul Ryan down together. What did you find?

Molly: A voice alternator.

Dusty: A what?

Molly: A voice alternator, you know the thing that you use to disguise your voice on the phone. I found it in Paulís coat pocket. I am sure he used it to make that threatening call to Rose.

Rosanna: So you found Molly going through your things?

Paul: Jennifer did. Jennifer caught her red-handed.

Rosanna: Looking for?

Paul: Evidence.

Rosanna: Of?

Paul: Molly thinks that I'm the one who called Rose to scare her so that she'd need a bodyguard so that I could keep her on a short leash.

Rosanna: That's absurd.

Paul: Yes, it is.

Rosanna: What is it?

Paul: I did it, Rosanna. Molly's right. I'm the one who called Rose to threaten her.

On the next "As The World Turns" --

Aaron: Lucy, I want to explain.

Lucy: Chris was right, wasn't he? You slept with Alison.

Molly: He's the man that she loves. He's the man she's gonna marry. And it doesn't matter what anybody else says, especially you. So give it up.

Alison: It'll be okay? How can it be okay when I'm gonna have a baby?
