Chris: You're not working at Metro.

Alison: Why not? You're gonna be working at the clinic.

Chris: Look, Ali, I appreciate what you did. You know, running out and finding another job after you lost your job here --

Alison: No, I didn't lose the job here. Your ex-girlfriend over there -- she had it in for me.

Chris: She was never my girlfriend.

Alison: Well, you tell her that.

Chris: Look, Ali, I just turned the woman in. Okay? If she thinks that she still has any traction with me, then she's dumber than she looks. Okay? Now, you've got your job back. Everything's fine.

Alison: Yeah, but you still lost all of that money on the condo. And it's not fair that you're getting all these extra hours at the clinic. And I'm just sitting around.

Chris: Ali, you're not just sitting around. Okay, you're working full-time at the hospital. And besides, I don't mind working at the clinic because it's good training.

Alison: Okay. Well, while you're working at the clinic, I could be making at least a couple extra hundred dollars at Metro.

Chris: No. Absolutely not.

Alison: Am I missing something here? Is there some reason that you don't want me working at Metro?

Chris: Yes, there is.

Holden: Lily, where are you? You should've been home from Chicago hours ago.

Chick: For those of you who've just joined us, it's open mike night at the Windy City Cafe. And we have a lovely young lady who can't wait to entertain you.

[Phone ringing]


Lily: Holden.

Jennifer: Jordan Sinclair, this is Bob Hughes. My Aunt Kimís husband.

Tom: Oh, then its official. You're finally "Kimís husband." Congratulations.

Jennifer: I meant because of --

Bob: It's all right, Jennifer.

Jennifer: Uncle Bob is head of the hospital. But it's was Kimís party, so --

Molly: Except she got called away on business at the last minute and feels terrible. She can't even welcome her guest of honor.

Jennifer: So Molly is officiating. She's our anchorwoman -- sorry, person. Am I blowing this?

Margo: No, you're doing fine. I'm Margo Hughes. I'm Kimís husband's daughter-in-law.

Tom: Making me Kimís husband's son. I'm Tom.

Jennifer: Sorry, Uncle Bob.

Bob: I said, it's all right, Jennifer. But one of these days you might be to coming into my E.R.

Jennifer: Whoo!

Tom: Ooh!

Jennifer: Well, Jordan, as you can see, the Hughes family is a very special family.

Jordan: Well, anyone who's a fan of Coleman Reese is okay by me.

Margo: Are you a football fan?

Jordan: Who isn't?

Jennifer: How did Kim convince him to come to WOAK?

Molly: She didn't. Well, I know she's expressed interest. Being that he's a well-known sportscaster and football hero. But this is a small station and I'm not quite sure there's the -- incentive that he's used to.

Tom: Well, then it's going to be our job to persuade him.

Margo: Great! Let's go get the cold beer.

Tom: See why I married her?

Bob: So, you're not a Doc Reese fan?

Molly: No! He's a good sportscaster, if you like arrogant ex-jocks. But then, a lot of people do.

Bob: Then it's not just that you don't want to share air time with a living legend --?

Molly: Bob, whatever brings more eyeballs to the station is fine by me. But, you know what? The guy is an hour late, didn't bother to call me. And I know Kim asked him to because I heard her leave him the message.

Bob: Well, maybe his flight was delayed.

Molly: No, no, no. No. He checked into the hotel earlier this afternoon.

Bob: Well, he might have a reasonable explanation.

Molly: How much do you know about this guy?

Bob: Well, I watched him play for years. He's a defensive legend. We had ten winning seasons in football, two championships --

Molly: I'm talking off the field.

Bob: Other than sports casting -- not much.

Molly: Well, I did a little research on our Coleman "Doc" Reese. And let me tell you --

Doc: Actually, why don't you tell me? Coleman Reese. And I have to tell you, there's nothing I enjoy more than hearing these outrageous stories about myself. Especially when they're true.

Carly: You want me to take the job at B.R.O.?

Rosanna: Yes, I do. If that's what you want.

Carly: Of course I want it! I just didn't want to do anything that would hurt you.

Rosanna: I know. I know. And it means so much to me that you care about me that way.

Carly: Rosanna.

Rosanna: That you'd be willing to sacrifice --

Carly: I love you.

Rosanna: I love you, too. I love you so much. And believe me; this is going to be the best thing for both of us.

[Phone ringing]

Chick: Grab a chair, get yourself a drink -- and the next singer will be on in just a minute.

Lily: Holden?

Holden: Where are you? I was getting worried.

Lily: I'm fine. That meeting just took a lot longer than I expected. And I actually got more some leads on some people to contribute to Rose's Foundation. So I really should follow up on that -- I -- I just got delayed. I'm sorry.

Holden: Did you pick up the check for the foundation?

Lily: Yes. I did, and it took longer than I thought. And I should have called. I apologize.

Holden: Did they feed you at least?

Chick: Put your hands together for Miss Violet Palmer --


Lily: It's just a bad connection. I gotta go.

Chick: Hear that applause? Gimme your purse.

Lily: What? Oh, no, no. You know what? I can't do this.

Chick: No, I'll put it behind the bar. It'll be safe.

Lily: Oh, no, no. You don't understand. I really -- I gotta go.

Chick: Honey, your set's not gonna last more than 15 minutes. I thought you wanted to sing?

Lily: I do. But, I really -- really, I just gotta go.

Chick: Violet, life is short. You don't get that many shots.

Lily: I know. I'm sorry. I gotta go.

Chick: Hey!

Molly: Molly McKinnon.

Doc: WOAK's star anchor. You know what I can't figure out, is why such a pretty lady would have it in for me before we'd even met.

Molly: I was just wondering where you were, Mr. Reese. And why you didn't bother to call.

Doc: By all means, call me Doc. Everyone does. And I couldn't be happier to be here.

Bob: Doc, I'm Bob Hughes.

Doc: Ah, Kimís husband.

Bob: That seems to be the theme of the evening.

Molly: Bob is Chief of Staff at Oakdale Memorial Hospital.

Doc: Yes. Yes, I know. Kim was telling me about the terrific orthopedic unit.

Bob: Yes, we're very fortunate. Listen, I can't tell you how honored I am to meet you.

Tom: Oh, I can tell you.

Bob: This is my son, Tom.

Tom: You have given me more sheer joy than any one man should ever expect.

Jordan: Oh, you better not let your wife hear that, Tom.

Tom: It's all right. She's a fan.

Jessica: Hey, whoa. Where're you going?

Margo: I'll -- I'll be right back -- I'll come back.

Curtis: Is he here? Doc Reese?

Margo: I don't know. I haven't seen him yet, but he's probably over in that crowd.

Jessica: Okay, we'll find him. We'll find him.

Curtis: That's him! He's here!

Jessica: I've never seen Curtis so excited.

Ben: Well, you know when he first came to live with me, football was how I got through to him. In fact, we saw Doc Reeseís last season together.

Jessica: Oh? Well, why don't you go on over and say hello to the man?

Ben: Yeah, I will. I will -- after I make sure my wife is okay.

Jessica: I'm fine.

Ben: No, you're not. You're still upset because Bonnie and Sarah moved to Florida. In fact, you didn't even want to come out tonight, except the men in the family insisted.

Jessica: Well, the men in the family were absolutely right. I needed to dress up and get out and -- you know, not think about things.

Ben: We're not going to stay long. Okay?

Jessica: Okay. Okay -- go, go. I'll be fine.

Jordan: You never heard of "Doctor Death?" That man is hands-down the most amazing linebacker in the history of the game.

Jennifer: What's a linebacker?

Jordan: Doc was the captain of the defense. If the quarterback is in charge of offense? He's -- okay, your eyes are glazing over.

Jennifer: Sorry. I was never much of a jock.

Jordan: Well, you have been blessed with other talents.

Jennifer: Right. Well, since football clearly is not my game, let's talk shop. I loved his suit, his tie, his jacket. Everything. You didn't?

Jordan: Jennifer, something happened today. Well, I guess you're going to find out about it anyway. And since it's going to affect you--

Jennifer: What are you talking about?

Jordan: Your mother hired Carly Tenney to help her design the new collection.

Carly: How can me working at B.R.O. Be the best thing for both of us?

Rosanna: It's just that you're gonna be able to use all these terrific designs that you've created. That is, if Barbaraís offer is legitimate, which I really hope it is. I really hope she's not manipulating you 'cause I'll kill her. These are beautiful.

Carly: I'm checking the offer, Rosanna. I won't go anywhere near that place without a lawyer and an ironclad contract. Believe me --

Rosanna: Good, good. Well, it sounds like you have it under control then. I like this --

Carly: Except Iíd still be working with Paul, you know? I wouldn't be able to avoid him entirely. You've made it clear that any contact I have with him would be like stabbing you in the back. You even threatened to cut me out of your life.

Rosanna: I know -- and would I prefer it if Paul moved to Bangkok or Paris or Lucerne? Yes, I would. But life isn't perfect. We all know that. And I suppose you could say I have had a change of heart.

Carly: About the man you hold responsible for losing Cabot?

Rosanna: I'm never going to be able to forgive Paul or Craig for what they did. They cost me the one thing that mattered to me in my life.

Carly: I'm sorry, I just don't understand. What's changed?

Rosanna: Me. I've changed. I've moved on. I'm no longer paralyzed by grief, because I have a plan. I have a plan to fix things. To make sure that in the future I never lose what's most important to me.

Carly: And me being at B.R.O. -- Oh, damn it, Rosanna, that's not fair!

Rosanna: What? What isn't fair?

Carly: Using me to get back at Paul.

Rosanna: Well, I'm not using you to get back at Paul.

Carly: Then why is it the best thing for both of us for me to work at B.R.O.? And what's this plan you got?

Chris: Alison, you're putting in enough hours at the hospital as it is.

Alison: Okay, Chris, I hate to tell you, but making beds, it isn't that much.

Chris: Don't kid yourself. Okay? You're dealing with people all day long -- patients, nurses, doctors. Okay? You need to be flexible, organized, patient.

Alison: I am.

Chris: And if you're up half the night working at Metro, you're going to be exhausted. Okay? And then before you know it, you show up for work late, you could lose your temper, you could end up losing your job.

Alison: Okay, you know, so then I can work at Metro full time.

Chris: No. Look, Ali, you have a really good thing going here. With your mom and my dad on staff, and me on track for pediatrics, you can go as far as you want. So, if you're tired of making beds, take some classes. Get your nursing degree.

Alison: No, I don't want to go back to school. I hate school, Chris.

Chris: Ali, you hated high school. Who didn't? College, grad school -- it's a whole different thing.

Alison: Okay, right, but the point right now is that we're trying to save money so that we can get an apartment and get out of your parents' house.

Chris: Yes, yes. And I'm doing that.

Alison: Yes, but Chris, I want to help! I don't want to feel like I'm a guest when I move. I want to give you half of the money for the down payment, half the money for the utilities. All of that.

Chris: This isn't about the money --

Alison: So then what?

Chris: I don't like the idea of you working at Metro.

Alison: Yeah, but, Chris, if the tips are really good, then I could be making twice as much as I'm making here in half the time.

Chris: Ali, if you want to pick up some extra shifts here at the hospital --

Alison: Okay, so this isn't about me working? You don't want me working at Metro.

Chris: Yes.

Alison: You don't want me spending time with Aaron.

Luke: That's it? You're not even going to finish it?

Holden: Maybe later.

Luke: You're worried about Mom.

Holden: No, I'm not. I'm not worried about Mom. I just talked to her, and she's fine. There's nothing to worry about. Nothing at all.

Luke: She said she was gonna be back for dessert. She still's not here.

Holden: Well, that because something came up. Something unexpected. Do you remember that foundation that we told you she was working for?

Luke: For Rose?

Holden: That's right. That's what it was. Hey, come on. That's what it was. So don't you worry, okay? When Mom gets home, I'll tell her to come up and give you a kiss goodnight, and then everything's gonna be fine. Okay?

Luke: Okay. Just don't let it melt.

Holden: You got it. Get out of here.

[Doorbell rings]

Lucinda: It's late. I know it. I just -- I just wanted to know how Lily's trip to Chicago went.

Holden: Sounds like everything went fine. She got a big, fat contribution and more leads on where to get more.

Lucinda: Oh, good. Oh, that's my girl. I'd like to hear that from the horse's mouth. Lily? Darling? I'm here.

Holden: She's not here. I know that it's late, but I just talked to her, and she said she wouldn't be much longer.

Lucinda: Did you believe her?

Holden: Yeah. Of course I believed her.

Lucinda: Oh, that's a relief. You know, darling, Iíve been thinking, we really have got to try to trust Lily more. Both of us.

Holden: I do.

Lucinda: And it's very difficult to do that because she's made so many obstacles, but I felt something new when she was singing at the benefit. I felt, for the first time, that it was really Lily doing it -- Lily with her old character and confidence and spark. And I think we've reached a turning point.

Holden: Well, I'm beginning to see that, too.

Lucinda: It's been a hell of a siege. But I think she's coming back to us. I feel it.

Holden: I don't think the kids feel it yet. The minute she was gonna be late, I sensed that Luke thought that she wasn't coming home at all.

Lucinda: Well, then you must do whatever you can do allay those kids' fears. Because if she senses that any of us think that she might fail, then she could have a relapse, and we can't let that happen.

Holden: You've right. We won't let that happen.

Lucinda: Good. We won't. All right, I'm going to go home myself, and when she comes home, you put your arms around her, and you kiss her, and you kiss her for all of us. For me, too. And tell her I'll call -- I'll call her in the morning. Holden, oh, my darling. Has it come to this? You better eat it fast. Before it melts.

Bob: Still not impressed?

Molly: Look, Bob, I realize that Doc Coleman is a hero to every guy in this room. But when Kim asked me to host this party, I did my research, and the guy is -- problematic.

Bob: That's nice and vague.

Molly: Google him yourself, it's all there. Okay, he's been married twice. Both marriages ended badly. He's been just this side of the law several times. He a permanent fixture at night clubs, casinos, racetracks. The guy is a womanizer and a hard drinker.

Bob: Sounds like an interesting guy to have around.

Molly: Now, come on, would you want to work with him? He's trouble, trust me.


Margo: So where's the football hero?

Jessica: Over there entertaining the fellas.

Margo: Well, hey, that's my job -- oh, my God.

Jessica: What?

Margo: That man is gorgeous.

Jennifer: She offered Carly a job?

Jordan: I think it was more along the lines of a partnership.

Jennifer: What?

Jordan: But odds are Carly won't take it.

Jennifer: But why would my mother -- I mean, she hates Carly. It doesn't make sense. Did you ask her? What did she say?

Jordan: I made it clear to your mother some time ago, when I first met Carly -- you were there. And your mother blew a gasket.

Jennifer: Well, that's what I mean. I mean, why would she even --

Jordan: If you remember, I made a point of telling your mother that I didn't want to get in the middle of anything personal. So, I can hardly pry into her motives after that.

Jennifer: But -- okay, forget Carly. Why would she want to share the collection with anyone?

Jordan: Why don't you ask her, Jen? Maybe she'll tell you.

Jennifer: Okay, I will. And you know what? I'm going to talk to Carly, too.

Carly: I just don't get it. Why do you suddenly want me working at B.R.O.?

Rosanna: Because I need your help.

Carly: I'm gonna need more than that.

Rosanna: There's someone working there who's of interest to me.

Carly: This person have a name?

Rosanna: Jordan Sinclair.

Jordan: We don't know if Carly's even considering the offer. Or what Barbara said to her.

Jennifer: But didn't you say that she offered her a partnership?

Jordan: Yes, but what are the terms? Is it a limited partnership? For how long? One season, two seasons -- or it is open-ended? Is it contingent on sales? I just think you're better off approaching your mother about it first. You wouldn't want to say the wrong thing and screw up the negotiations.

Jennifer: You're right. I guess I'm just afraid that my mother won't tell me the truth.

Jordan: Just try not keep the focus on why she thinks she needs the help. Okay? Just talk to her.

Jennifer: I will.

Jordan: And, in the meantime, there's nothing you can do about it tonight.

Jennifer: So lighten up?

Jordan: I just want you to have some fun. Besides, didn't your Aunt Kim say that we were supposed to do whatever it takes to convince Doc Reese to stay in town?

Jennifer: Short of dancing on the table, I don't know what I could do to get his attention.

Jordan: Jennifer, all you have to do is walk across a room.

Jessica: You know, it's a good thing Tom didn't see your jaw drop to the floor like that.

Margo: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Tom loves Doc Reese more than I do. It's just that, you know, I'd just never seen him without the helmet and the pads and the clothes and the -- well, now, there's an idea.

Jessica: What?

Margo: Coleman Reese as God made him, huh?

Jessica: Margo Hughes!

Margo: Oh, come on, tell me that you wouldn't pay extra for a front row seat.

Jessica: I happen to be a happily married woman.

Margo: Well, I happen that, as well. I'm happy as a clam. I'm just not dead. And that man is a living, breathing God-given gift to any woman on this planet. And you can't argue with that. I won't let you.

Curtis: I've got a football --

Ben: Yeah, which he just happened to bring with him.

Curtis: You made me leave it in the car.

Doc: I'll tell you what, bring it on, son, and grab me a felt-tipped pen.

Curtis: Yes, sir. All right.

Ben: Sir. Oh, that's a first right there.

Doc: You got a great boy there.

Ben: Yeah, he's a great guy.

Tom: Please, just let me buy you a drink at least?

Doc: J.D., Straight up.

Tom: You got it.

Lily: Hey.

Holden: Hey, there.

Lily: Hi. Hey, I'm sorry I didn't get back to you after we talked. It's just that -- I wanted to wait five minutes, and then five minutes turned into another five minutes and then a half an hour, another half an hour -- I should've kept track of the time.

Holden: Thatís okay. I was just a little concerned.

Lily: About what?

Holden: Well, that maybe you had car trouble or problems on the interstate or something.

Lily: Uh-huh.

Holden: I'm not worried about you having another episode or something like that. I know that you turned the corner. I was worried! And then I missed you. I was hoping that maybe we could spend a little time together tonight.

Lily: Ohh, I would like that very much, spend some time together. How are the kids?

Holden: Sound asleep.

Lily: Oh, okay. Oh, we have that movie that we rented. We could make some more popcorn.

Holden: Well, tell me about the meeting first. I couldn't hear you on the phone, 'cause it was just so noisy.

Lily: Oh, yeah, it was. You -- well, you know how those things go. It was -- good. And then I was so happy that I got a line on some other donors and -- then afterwards --

Holden: Did something happen?

Lily: Yeah, something happened. Something totally unexpected.

Alison: Admit it, this isn't about me going back to school or you buying us that apartment. This is about Aaron Snyder.

Chris: Aaron is a factor, yes.

Alison: Come on, Chris, Aaron is just a friend.

Chris: Look, I know that, Ali, but the two of you --

Alison: That was one time. Once. And that was an accident. That's never gonna happen again.

Chris: Ali, that's not what I meant, okay? I like Aaron. I think that he's a good guy. But, for whatever reason, when the two of you get together, you wind up in trouble.

Alison: Okay, so then this is about you not trusting me?

Chris: No, this is about knowing you and not wanting you to get hurt.

Alison: And how am I going to get hurt in a restaurant?

Chris: Well, the last time you were in a restaurant, you almost drowned your supervisor.

Alison: Okay, well, she had it coming.

Chris: Yeah, well, I'm sure she did.

Alison: And I did that all by myself. You cannot blame Aaron for that.

Chris: No, but I can blame him for setting you up with Clark Watson and almost getting you killed.

Alison: Okay, so there have been times --

Chris: Several times.

Alison: -- That Aaron and I have -- that we've done things that we thought were good at the time, but --

Chris: Ali, Ali, I just -- I don't want to see you get hurt, okay? And if you're out working with Aaron -- what I want is for you and I to have a little time, peaceful time, okay? So we can enjoy each other, so we can go out on dates. You know, dinner and a movie and just be a normal couple. That's what it's really all about. So we can be happy.

Alison: Of course.

Chris: So if you want to pick up some extra shifts here at the hospital, be my guest. But no Metro. All right? I would spend half my life worrying about you, and that's no good for either of us.

Alison: Yeah, but I could make so much more money.

Chris: Ali, this is not about money. This is about us. It's about you and me.

Alison: Okay.

Chris: Thank you. Oh, I almost forgot. My mother's throwing this party over at Lakeview for this sportscaster guy that she's trying to lure to Oakdale and --

Alison: And she's expecting you to be there?

Chris: Both of us. I'm on call, but we could jump over there, get a quick bite to eat, say hey to the guy --

Alison: You go. I have to go over to Metro and tell them that I can't work there.

Chris: Look, I know you're disappointed. But this is what's best for both of us. Trust me.

[Alison sighs]

Carly: Jordan Sinclair?

Rosanna: You met him?

Carly: Yeah, just once. I ran into him, literally, at the Lakeview. He seemed decent enough. What's your interest?

Rosanna: Well, I barely know him myself. He's my neighbor at the Lakeview.

Carly: And you want me to cozy up to somebody that neither one of us really knows? Why?

Rosanna: If I tell you, you have to promise me to keep it a secret. You cannot tell anyone, not even Jack. No one can know.

Carly: I don't keep secrets from Jack.

Rosanna: It's not about your family. It's not about anything illegal.

Carly: Rosanna, I don't keep secrets from Jack.

Rosanna: This is about me. This is about my life and my personal business.

Carly: But you want my help.

Rosanna: Concerning something that has nothing to do with you or Jack. It's just one sister confiding in another.

Carly: All right. All right. If you swear that this has nothing to do with anything but your own private business, then I -- I won't tell -- I won't tell Jack.

Rosanna: Thank you. So, about Jordan -- I -- I -- I need to get as close to him as I can, as soon as possible.

Carly: What does that mean?

Rosanna: It means exactly what it sounds like.

Carly: Oh. Well, no wonder you wanted your divorce so quickly.

Rosanna: And Craig has agreed to my terms. So Jordan is the next step.

Carly: Next step?

Rosanna: I offered him a job at Cabot Motors, he turned me down. So, for the time being, he's going to be working at B.R.O., where Jennifer Munson has taken quite an interest in him. So, that's where you come in. If you're working at B.R.O., you're going to be able to keep an eye on her. Let me know if she's making any progress.

Carly: You want me to spy on Jennifer Munson?

Rosanna: It would be extremely inconvenient if she and Jordan were to get together right now.

Carly: Rosanna, this has something to do with why you disappeared, doesn't it? It has something to do with why you hired that professional thief to rob your house, doesn't it?

Rosanna: You could say that.

Carly: Well, Jack -- Jack arrested that guy, that De Grassi guy, you know?

Rosanna: Yes, and the charges were dropped.

Carly: The point is, you want me to keep your secrets, but if De Grassi is involved --

Rosanna: No, come on, De Grassi played his part, and now it's over. My interest, and yours, is simply Jordan Sinclair.

Carly: I'm sorry, Rosanna, if you want my help, you're gonna have to tell me why this guy is so important to you.

Holden: That sounds a little mysterious. Are you sure you're okay?

Lily: What do you mean?

Holden: Nothing. It just seems like maybe it was a lot. Driving to Chicago and back. Meeting with all those people from the foundation. Maybe it left you a little unsettled?

Lily: No. I love talking about the foundation. It's a positive thing. I just -- I didn't expect people to be so generous. You know, Metro last night, just showering us with all kinds of money.

Holden: So they gave you a bundle?

Lily: Yeah, more than that.

Holden: Well, that's great. Then we should celebrate. [Phone rings] you know what -- I meant to turn that ringer off --

Lily: I'll take care of it. I'll get it. Why don't you go check the kids, make sure they're really sleeping. Okay?

Holden: Okay.

Lily: Hello.

Chick: Violet?

Lily: Who is this?

Chick: Chick Marino from the Windy City Cafe. Is this Violet Palmer?

Lily: Yes. Yes, it is.

Molly: It doesn't add up.

Margo: What? What doesn't?

Molly: Why he'd leave the twin cities to come to a small town like Oakdale? I mean, Kim can't pay him what he's used to being paid, and he's going to lose half his audience.

Jessica: Well, it does seem a little odd. But, you know, who knows? I mean, workplace politics being what they are and everything. [Beeping] for goodness sake, they just won't leave you alone tonight.

Margo: Oh yeah, downside of being fabulous.

Tom: Oh come on, Joe Montana, it's gotta be.

Ben: Oh no, no, no. I don't know about all that. Doc? What do you think? Now what do you think?

Doc: Gentlemen, Iíve got to go make a phone call, but I shall return.

[Talking over each other]

Curtis: I got it, and the pen. And I've got a million questions --

Doc: Got a million, huh?

Chris: He say how long he'd be?

Tom: No, just said he had to make a phone call.

Chris: Great, just my luck, I gotta get back to the hospital.

Bob: Hey, don't worry. You are not going to miss Doc Reese. In fact, we're already selling him on all the great things about this town.

Chris: Great, great. That's good stuff. I gotta go.

Tom: Listen, before you go, Alisonís all squared away?

Chris: Well, yeah, now that the suspension's been lifted, everything's --

Tom: Good, so she's back at work.

Chris: Actually, she'd already found another job, but I talked her out of it.

Tom: Ah, well, I don't know, gentlemen. How long do you think it'll take for my little brother to realize that it's not always a good idea to work that closely with the love of your life. [Light laughter] but again, he's young --

Chris: And late for work. And he feels sorry for all the men who feel that they need to be away from the women that they love.

Tom: Ah --

Ben: Oh, yes, he is young.

Bob: He'll learn.

Alison: Aaron, they forget their change?

Aaron: Oh, no, no. That's mine.

Alison: All of it?

Aaron: All of it? Check this out, Ali -- that's all just tonight.

Alison: That's like $200.

Aaron: And look, the night's not even over yet. Check it, this whole place is packed.

Alison: Yeah, and it was like this the last time I was here.

Aaron: It's been like this for the last couple weeks. It's about time. I think Metro finally caught on.

Alison: Yeah, well, it's a great place. And there's no place like it in town.

Aaron: Ali, you're gonna be making so much money here. I'm telling you.

Alison: About that --

Aaron: It's gonna be so much fun, too. Oh my God, we're gonna have so much fun. Truth is -- it's like a party here all the time. It doesn't feel like you're working.

Alison: And it would be great.

Aaron: Yeah, it would be really great. And Chris could stop by after work, you know?

Alison: I wouldn't count on it.

Aaron: Why? Is he upset that you -- he's probably upset you working a lot of hours, right?.

Alison: No, that's not really the issue.

Aaron: I know, I know. It's the money thing with the condo. I understand, but just tell him that I low-balled you. I mean, not any guarantees, but, you know, with the way business is being, and the weather -- I guarantee you're gonna be making more than you think. Maybe sooner, you're probably gonna have an apartment a lot quicker than you think.

Alison: Yeah?

Aaron: Yeah. So why are you here?

Alison: Why'd I stop by? Um, because -- I wanted to tell you I can start working tomorrow night. Cleanup in aisle 5.

Lily: How did you get my number?

Chick: You left your cell phone. You must've dropped it when you spilled all that stuff outta your bag. I would've called you right away but it got a little crazy here.

That girl who was on before you -- came back with half a bag on, wanted to sing "Moon River", about 15 times. Anyway when I got a minute, I scrolled down, found a speed dial called "home" and there you go.

Lily: Well, Iím glad you tracked me down.

Chick: Not a problem. I just wish you'd had time to give us a tune. I've got a feeling about you. Something tells me you can sing.

Lily: I feel good when I sing.

Chick: See, I told you. But what are you gonna do. Que sera sera. You wanna give me an address I can send you the phone?

Lily: You know what, why don't you hold onto the phone? I'll pick it up myself. Okay, bye bye.

Curtis: All right, now you played in an era of great quarterbacks. Who, in your opinion, is the best of the best?

Doc: Well, Dan Marino was a great passer. But you've gotta understand something, kid. Quarterbacks get their signals from the sidelines. When you're on defense, you've got to think on your feet. It's all you out there.

Curtis: But what about --

Doc: Why don't you go out for a pass?

Curtis: What --?

Doc: Yeah, you heard me.

Curtis: In here --?

Doc: Come on, you want to be a football player, don't you?

Curtis: Yes, sir.

Doc: Then show me what you got. Come on.

[Talking and laughing]

Margo: Now I thought that you played defense, Mr. Reese.

Doc: Now is that fair? You know my name but I don't know yours. Call me Doc.

Margo: Margo.

Doc: Margo. Great name -- stylish, smart, classy.

Margo: You just don't waste any time, do you?

Doc: I have a confession to make. I adore redheads.

Margo: Do you? Is that including married redheads?

Doc: Even better.

Jordan: Stop worrying.

Jennifer: I'm not.

Jordan: Yeah, what's going on with the furrowed brow then?

Jennifer: No, really. I've thought about it. Carly's not going to take the job.

Jordan: Why not?

Jennifer: 'Cause her sister would have a fit.

Jordan: Rosanna?

Jennifer: She hates Paul, you know that. And she has good reason after what he did to her. I don't think that she's ever going to be able to forgive him.

Jordan: But does she hate him enough to keep her sister from taking the job?

Jennifer: I heard she offered to bankroll Carly on her own venture. So it's not like she's actually asking her to give up her career.

Jordan: She would use her money to keep Carly away from B.R.O.?

Jennifer: Sure. Unless she wants Carly at B.R.O., And I can't think of a reason why she would.

Carly: Sorry. Sage has this new game where she pushes her teddy bear through the rungs of her crib? And then hollers for me to come and pick it up. She does it about 1,800 times a day.

Rosanna: My niece is brilliant.

Carly: Listen, I know that you've been really busy since you got back. And I wasn't sure if spending time with Sage would make you miss Cabot even more --

Rosanna: I'm just so worried about him. He must not understand what happened. He must think that I died or that I left him, you know?

Carly: Oh, sweetie.

Rosanna: Don't -- sorry. It's okay. If you hug me I'll fall apart, and I really -- I have to be able to function right now.

Carly: I really have no idea how you're managing.

Rosanna: It's fine. Life goes on. I'd love to see Sage, I really would. I do miss her.

Carly: Then trust me.

Rosanna: I do trust you. And I promise you I will tell you everything as soon as I possible can, but not now. It wouldn't be good for you, it wouldn't be good for me.

Carly: Then I'm sorry. I promised Jack.

Rosanna: I know. I understand. I respect that. If Craig hadn't lied to me then perhaps we'd still be married, and I'd still have Cabot. But I can tell you for sure that my plans are good. I'm not trying to hurt Paul. I'm not trying to hurt Craig.

Carly: Or Jordan?

Rosanna: No, no, no, not Jordan. Especially not Jordan. Okay? I'm just trying to make things right so that I can be happy. So that we can all be happy.

Carly: You know that's what I want for you.

Rosanna: Then please, please help me. I'm begging you. Look, I promise I will tell you as soon as I possibly can. You just have to trust me for a little while longer. Take the job at B.R.O., you won't regret it. Please, my whole life depends on it,

Carly: Okay. Okay.

Rosanna: Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. I promise you, I promise you everything's going to be okay.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Doc: I think I'm in love.

Katie: I knew that stupid story about the threatening ex-boyfriend was a bunch of bull. Come on.

Henry: Whoa, whoa -- wait. Where we going?

Katie: We're going to find Russell Terry and tell him the game is over.

Pilar: Make love to me, mike.
