[Margo daydreaming.]

Margo: Shall we have this coffee in bed?

Doc: Shall we just skip this coffee altogether?

Margo: Tom? Do you want toast with this coffee?

Casey: Dad's not hungry. Look what he just saw in the paper!

Margo: Oh.

Casey: Oh, no. Here, look.

Aaron: This is gonna make us rich.

Emily: Come on, it'll be fun. You, me, "the six keys to the kingdom"?

Susan: I don't have time for a newspaper contest --

Emily: Oh come on -- which is exactly why we never see each other unless something terrible happens. Come on, this is fun. This is a good thing. Little mother-daughter bonding? And enough prize money to send us both to the islands every February for the rest of our lives?

Susan: Ooh!

Chris: It's a treasure hunt. Okay, there are teams. But each team only consists of two people. We help each other solve the clues and find out where the keys are hidden.

Alison: So?

Chris: So, with my memory and your wicked intuition? We can blow everybody out of the water.

Curtis: We don't have time for this. We've got jobs.

Aaron: We win this contest. We won't need jobs.

Curtis: Now that's an idea I can get behind.

Emily: And when we win this thing? The entire town of Oakdale will know that you are smarter than Kim Hughes.

Susan: Oh, you got me where I live.

Emily: I am your daughter after all.

Susan: Yes, you are -- partner.

Emily: Yeah.

Alison: You want me to spend the little bit of free time we have together trying to win some contest?

Chris: Yes.

Alison: No way.

Casey: There're these clues, the paper puts out?

Margo: Clues to what?

Casey: To buried keys. And the first team to collect six keys wins. Dad said he'd do it with me.

Tom: But then Dad thought, you know, he'd probably have a better chance of winning if he teamed up with Mom. Why? Because she knows everything.

Margo: No, you stick with Dad, he's the winner.

Casey: Okay, so we've gotta head downtown and register --

Margo: What, already?

Tom: Why, you need us to do something for you?

Casey: Dad, they're giving out the first clue in, like, half an hour. And you gotta to be signed up.

Tom: I know, but if your Mom needs something --

Margo: All right, now, you go.

Tom: You sure?

Margo: Yeah, I'm sure. Hey, Iíll empty the dishwasher -- Casey!

Casey: Sorry --

Margo: Anything you need me to do, tom?

Tom: I thought you were gonna take it easy this morning.

Margo: No, not me! As president of the team Hughes booster club, I'm here to serve, sir.

Tom: Ah, terrific. Then, if you wouldn't mind you could drop these papers off.

Margo: Sure. Where do they go?

Tom: Kim needs them right away first thing in the morning. Just drop by WOAK.

Margo: No, sorry -- I canít. Sorry.

Doc: And our Cubs are on their way to Anaheim for tonight's game, after giving it to St. Louis yesterday 7-2. Slammin' Sammy Sosa belted his 25th of the year. And what a game for Sammy.

[Doc daydreaming.]

Margo: I like you so much better when you don't talk.

Doc: Well, you're the boss.

Kim: Actually I'm the boss. So anyway, the "City Times" is sponsoring this new contest. "Six keys to the kingdom." And they'd like to have you announce it at the end of this -- earth to Doc? Have you heard a word I've said?

Doc: Yes. Of course. The "City Times."

Kim: You know what, sport? It would be really nice if you would at least pretended to listen to me.

Doc: Believe me, Mrs. Hughes. You are always on my mind.

Henry: You're abandoning me? After everything we've meant to each other?

Katie: I'm sorry, Henry. You know that I would love to be your partner --

Henry: Listen, we could buy the bunnies a brand new hutch.

Katie: If we won.

Henry: "If" we won? What are you talking about? With your tricky little brain and my gift for the devious. We're naturals.

Katie: It's just -- normally, I'd love to. But Simonís just --

Henry: Oh, Simon! I hate this. I hate this. Okay, just once. Please, just once let "best friend" Trump "runaway husband." Come on.

Katie: But -- do you know -- it's just -- he just got back. And I have to devote myself to him.

Henry: Why? Are you trying to prove something?

Katie: What do you mean?

Henry: Katie, if you were 1000% sure that Simon was the man of your dreams, you wouldn't think twice about spending an afternoon or two or three with me.

Katie: He's my husband and I love him.

Henry: And Mike?

Katie: I thought this was about you.

Henry: This is about Simon and why you suddenly feel the need to devote yourself to him.

Katie: Because -- because I want my marriage to work.

Henry: And it'll stop working if you don't devote yourself for a minute and a half and let your mind wander?

Katie: I don't want my mind to wander --

Henry: Because it'll wander over to Mike.

Katie: Henry --

Henry: You love him.

Katie: And he betrayed me. He sided with Pilar. And you and I ended up in that horrible mental hospital. And Simon rescued me. Okay, he's my husband and we were very happy with -- before he left --

Henry: Twice.

Katie: What is with you? I thought you liked Simon.

Henry: I do like him. But if you're not happy --

Katie: I am. Or I will be. If I work at it. And I will. Because Simon is worth the effort. I trust him, Henry. I know he wouldn't betray me.

[Russ clears his throat]

Pilar: It's about time you showed up.

Simon: Just relax.

Russ: Tell me this is my money.

Simon: Paid in full, yeah.

Pilar: I don't think so.

Alison: You forgot. This is the new me -- the smarter, saner Alison Stewart. No more schemes, no more shortcuts, no more plots and plans.

Chris: But this is a legitimate --

Alison: It's waste of time, and I'm shocked. Shocked, that my mature boyfriend who's a doctor, and should know better, would want me to focus on anything but the future.

Chris: But this is all about the future.

Alison: I know that you want us to have fun and be spontaneous, but we're living with my mom. My naked Mom.

Chris: Alison, that was one time, okay? And I'm a doctor.

Alison: If you're gonna say that -- that you see naked women all the time, it's not gonna make me feel better.

Chris: Look, Alison, all I saw was this.

Alison: Stop it!

Chris: Look, trust me. I'm not thinking about your mother. I'm thinking about you, and me, and -- you know.

Alison: And so am I. And that's why there's no way that I'm gonna spend my time playing "find the magic key," or whatever it is with you.

Chris: Oh, yeah? Even if I do this?

Alison: Stop it. You look like Scooby-doo with fleas.

Chris: Next time you think about your Mom, just think about me like this.

Susan: What's so funny?

Emily: Are you -- are you guys doing the contest?

Susan: Emily and I are partners.

Emily: And I hate to break it to you, but we're gonna win. Not that I would, you know, discourage a little competitiveness between friends. You know, the more, the merrier.

Alison: Are you serious? You and Mom are gonna do this thing, too?

Susan: Absolutely. I have the day off, so I figured, why not. It'll be fun. Besides, we knew we'd see you two there.

Chris: Nope. Alison won't be my partner.

Emily and Susan: What?

Chris: Yeah. She doesn't want to do it.

Emily: Why?

Alison: I can't believe you guys. You guys are, like, the busiest people I have ever met. And you're gonna waste your time, your 2 1/2 seconds of free time, on some stupid game? You guys are supposed to be role models. You're supposed to be buying vitamins and balancing checkbooks, not playing some stupid game. I mean, seriously, what's the point?

Susan: Yeah.

Emily: She doesn't know about the money, does she?

Chris: Hmm.

Emily: Uh-uh.

Chris: See, the winner does get $300,000.

Alison: $300,000?

Chris: Yeah.

Alison: We could buy, like, the biggest place ever. We could get, like, a -- we could get a Jacuzzi.

Chris: A really nice Jacuzzi.

Emily: Jacuzzi.

Alison: It says we have to meet down at the Lakeview in half an hour. What are we standing around for? Come on, let's go. Let's go.

Chris: See, that's why I love your daughter.

Emily: Yeah, well, when she's great, she's great.

Chris: Yup.

Alison: Chris, come on. Come on.

Chris: Oh, yeah. Wouldn't want to hold you up.

Alison: Let's go! Let's go!

Susan: Bye-bye.

Emily: Go get 'em.

Casey: But you just said you could pitch in.

Margo: I know. I know. And I would. I would, any other time. But I -- have so many errands to do and they're all on the other side of town --

Casey: But Grandma needs these documents right away. And -- look, if we drop them off, we're gonna be --

Tom: Actually, the papers are my responsibility.

Casey: But you promised.

Tom: I know. Tell you what. If we leave right now, we'll make it.

Casey: No, we'll be late. Come on. You know Grandma. She's gonna want to talk to you.

Tom: I'll tell her to call me as soon as she's read them.

Casey: Why can't Mom?

Tom: Because she canít. All right? Do me a favor. Just run upstairs and get your wallet, they're gonna need to see some I.D. When we register.

Margo: You know what? I'll drop off the papers.

Casey: Thank you.

Tom: I thought you were --

Margo: It's all right. It's not a problem. I'll just do my errands some other time. It's not a problem.

Tom: Great. All right, case. Go get your wallet. So why don't you want to go over to WOAK? Did you and Kim have a falling out?

Margo: No. No. We're fine.

Tom: Well, something's got you pretty upset. What's going on?

Margo: You know what? I really didn't sleep too well last night.

Tom: Well, why don't you just go back to bed?

Margo: No. You take Casey and get registered.

Casey: Come on.

Tom: Just a minute. Just a minute. Hey. You promise me everything's okay?

Margo: Everything is fine. There is absolutely no reason why I can't go to WOAK and drop off those papers and save you guys a trip. So go and win, okay? I have to get changed.

Tom: Okay.

Casey: Come on, Dad. There's probably already a line at the Lakeview.

Tom: All right. Let's go.

Henry: Let's forget about Mike. Forget about Simon. Let's just think about me for a second, okay? Your roommate, your best friend, the guy who went to the looney bin and back for you --

Katie: I know. I'm sorry. I just -- I can't --

Henry: I need you, cupcake. I need you. I need you like G.W. needs Florida, okay? I need you like Houdini needs his thumbs. Okay, without you I'm nothing. I am bupkus. You're the only partner I have ever wanted. You're the only partner I'll ever need. Now promise me, okay, you'll be my one and only -- Myra! Sweet lips. Hey, Henry Coleman. Tell me you're looking for me like I'm looking for you. Tell me that you'll be my partner in "the six keys to the kingdom" --

Myra: Back off, martini boy! One more word and I'll call the cops.

Henry: Let me make it up to you, Myra, baby, please. That is one petty woman. So she lost a lousy six grand, you know? What? Did I tell her to draw an inside straight? Well, maybe I did. But you know what? Buyer beware, that's my motto. All's fair in love and war. And love is love, but poker, poker is -- what's wrong?

Katie: Nothing.

Henry: Are you having second thoughts about partnering with me? Kasnoff.

Katie: I'm sorry, I can't help it. You're right, I do still love him. But he sold me out, and I can't -- how can I -- I canít. I'm with Simon now. And I belong with him. And no matter how long it takes, I'll get over mike and I'll be happy. I will.

Pilar: I'm not going anywhere till you pay me what you owe me. I'm the one that broke up mike and Katie. Just like you asked.

Simon: Don't push it, Pilar.

Pilar: And a bonus. Don't be so cranky. You've got to admit, it's been a little touch and go with you these past few weeks.

Simon: I didn't like your methods.

Pilar: Oh, well, then you should have shown up when you said you would, instead of leaving me hanging all those weeks. Besides, what're you complaining about? Katie's free. Mike's out of the picture. You got what you wanted.

Simon: So did you.

Pilar: You were very generous. I like that in a man.

Simon: We're done.

Pilar: Oh, too bad. We were so good together.

Russ: Well, you came through.

Pilar: I always do.

Russ: Oh, St. Croix, here I come.

Pilar: Enjoy yourself. You earned it.

Russ: Yeah. Well, what about you? If you're going back to Spain, you should do a little stopover on the Riviera first. It's high season, but hey, you can afford it, right?

Pilar: Yeah. I suppose I can.

Russ: Yeah, well, don't just stand there, get yourself a plane ticket. You must be dying to get out of this pit.

Pilar: Michael?

Mike: Take your things and get out.

Pilar: I'm sorry. I can't do that.

Mike: Why not?

Pilar: I'm not ready to say good-bye.

Margo: Hey, Kim.

Kim: Hi.

Margo: Tom wanted me to drop off these documents to you.

Kim: Oh, thanks very much. Where are they? Team Hughes? Are they registering?

Margo: Yeah, yeah. They are the team. Listen, Tom said to give him a call after you have a chance to read through everything.

Kim: Good enough. Good enough. You tell Casey that I've got a book he might want to have. I think it'll really help him with the clues to this contest. In fact, it could be here at the studio. We used it for the Founder's Day special we did. Anyway, I'll see if I can find it.

Margo: Okay. I'll have him give you a call. Listen, I gotta go.

Kim: All right. Bye.

Doc: Make these corrections, run me a fresh copy. And I'll be back in just a minute.

P.A.: Okay, Doc.

Charlie: It's showtime, folks. I need those forms. And this is twosomes only. You have to have a partner to play. It takes two to tango.

Henry: Casey Hughes. How ya doin'? Long time no see, buddy.

Casey: Whoa. I'm not your buddy.

Henry: Since when?

Casey: Since you stole my camera.

Henry: Uh -- you -- hey, we win this thing, you can buy any camera you want. Within reason.

Casey: You want me to partner with you?

Henry: Why, Casey, thank you very much. It's an honor.

Casey: I'm partnering with my dad. The D.A.?

Henry: Yes.

Casey: I think you've met?

Henry: Lovely man. Lovely man, your father.

Tom: I'm glad you think so, Henry. He's not bothering you, is he, son?

Henry: Me? Bother Casey? Come on.

Tom: Because you know what, I'll bet his Mom would have something to say about that.

Casey: My  Mom, the detective?

Henry: Yeah -- right. I think that's Katie calling me. Ciao.

Emily: Wow.

Alison: What are all these people doing here?

Emily: I guess they read the papers.

Alison: No, but they've got like, cell phones and guidebooks and laptops.

Emily: Oh, my.

Alison: No, I'm serious. They're prepared.

Susan: Over prepared.

Chris: They're just trying to psych us out.

Susan: Anyway, all the questions in the contest are based on Oakdale history. You had that in fifth grade.

Alison: Mom, I had the chicken pox in fifth grade. And post-nasal drip. And I had a lot of detention.

Chris: Which is why you have me as your partner. Come on, let's register.

Henry: That time you needed Cubs tickets --

Curtis: And you took my money and spent it at the track?

Henry: I invested the money. I would have tripled our money. Come on, we could have had box seats.

Curtis: Our money?

Henry: How was I supposed to know the horse was lame?

Aaron: Back off, Henry. He's my partner.

Henry: Wow. You know what? You two guys are short-sighted. This is a contest. You need me. Wait, wait -- time out. I've got an idea. I'll be the silent partner. We'll split the winnings three ways.

Aaron: I got an idea. How about you be the invisible partner and just split?

Curtis: That was good.

Aaron: You liked that, man? That's for you.


Henry: Ingrates. All of them.

Alison: You guys signing up?

Chris: Oh, not that it matters.

Curtis: You think so.

Emily: Listen, Mom and I have it in the bag, so do your self a favor and quit now.

Charlie: Can I have your attention, please? Wow, what a turnout. "The City Times" would like to thank each and every one of you for showing up and helping make this contest a success.

Casey: So how do we win?

Charlie: Ah, the young man asks an important question. How do you win the contest? Well, it's easy. "The City Times" will be publishing clues -- sometimes in the morning edition, sometimes in the afternoon. You'll never know.

Emily: That's a good way to move circulation.

Charlie: These clues will lead you to keys hidden around Oakdale.

Chris: How many keys are hidden?

Charlie: Dozens. But it only takes six to win. The first team to collect six keys wins $300,000.

[Crowd cheers] You guys ready to hear the first clue?

All: Yeah.

Charlie: All right. Well, just so you know, the clues will come in all shapes and sizes. This first one is a poem. Listen up -- "Oakdaleís founding timber fell with a great moan. And it's there we hear of a world far from home. The virgin you can see. But beware of the bees. 340, six back, two down. Is the first key sown."

Alison: Huh?

Simon: Katie? Where are you, sweetheart? Katie.

Katie: Hey! Where were you? I got home and you weren't here. I just thought -- well, forget what I thought. Where were you?

Simon: I just had some stuff to do.

Katie: Oh. I was hoping you didn't do it.

Simon: Do what?

Katie: Let Henry or somebody else talk you into joining that stupid contest.

Simon: What contest?

Katie: So you didn't sign up?

Simon: No. I don't know what you're talking about. Okay, good.

Katie: Because I think we should just focus on us right now, you know? Getting things back to the way they were before. Well, not that they're ever gonna be the same again, but -- better, right? We can work on making them better.

Simon: Exactly. Better than ever. Listen, you know everything I've done is because I love you, right?

Katie: And you were trying to keep me safe.

Simon: Exactly. Exactly. And now we're good.

Katie: Good.

Mike: Do whatever you want. Just don't do it here.

Pilar: No! I know you're angry about Russ. But he's gone. He's out of our lives.

Mike: Russ is the least of it!

Pilar: What do you mean?

Mike: I don't know what your game is.

Pilar: There is no game.

Mike: You showed up with an agenda to get between me and Katie --

Pilar: No, that's not true. I don't care what Henry says or Detective Hughes. She has no proof because there isn't any.

Mike: Because you were careful. And I was been blind. The more I think about it, you were working against me and Katie from the very beginning. You set her up to look crazy. And then when she finally gets committed, you showed up at the hospital --

Pilar: I wasn't trying to hurt --

Mike: You showed her a picture of the two of us in bed together! That was supposed to cheer her up?

Pilar: I explained why! I'm not a cruel person. You know me.

Mike: Oh, I know what you wanted to show me.

Pilar: But that's who I really am.

Mike: Oh, you know -- when it suits you. You know, and I fell for it for awhile. But you took advantage. You made me to feel sorry for you, then you did everything you could to hurt somebody I love.

Pilar: Okay! Maybe you're right. But I didn't do it alone.

Announcer: Coming up on "As the World Turns."

Pilar: I'm back!

Margo: Doc, I can't do this. I can't ruin my life. Oh!

Simon: I still can't tell these guys apart.

Katie: Okay. This is Snickers -- small ears, boy. And this is faux.

Simon: Mike's rabbit.

Katie: Mike found her. She's mine.

Simon: Listen -- look, you had a relationship with the guy. Okay? And if you want to talk about it, I'm cool with it.

Katie: I don't think we have to go there.

Simon: Why not? I'm not angry about it, okay? I was gone. What were you supposed to do? I'm not going to obsess over anything that happened. I mean, we're back together, right?

Katie: Yeah.

Simon: Okay, so if you do want to talk about it, it doesn't bother me.

Katie: All right. Well, I guess you should know that I loved him. I mean, he'll always have a place in my heart. He's still Mike. But he didn't believe in me. He let me down. And then you came back into town and we're still married and we still love each other. I think we should just focus on our future.

Simon: So if Pilar didn't come back to town --

Katie: Oh, please -- let's not talk about Pilar. It was ugly. And what's the point, anyway? She did. And then you came back. And what are we gonna do with the rest of our lives?

Simon: Whoa! You want to decide all that now?

Katie: Why not? I mean, you're gonna have to get a job. I've been working at the hospital, but that could definitely change. We could live in Oakdale? We could -- go to Australia. We could go anywhere.

Simon: Okay. I know where we're gonna go right now. How about a bubble bath? And we can take everything form there.

Katie: Sounds good. I knew we'd figure it out.

Simon: Yeah.

Mike: So you admit it you were working with Russ.

Pilar: No. Russ is just someone from my past who wouldn't let go. I was talking about -- Katie.

Mike: Katie?

Pilar: And you. Was I jealous? A little. Maybe more than a little. Did I want you for myself? Yes. I admit it. And you wanted me. And if you were honest --

Mike: All right. I'm not making any apologies for what we did. I'm just not going there again.

Pilar: But Katie doesn't want you anymore. She's obsessed with that loser from the outback. Why, I don't know. You are twice the man he is. And it drove me nuts, watching her jerk you around. I don't like her. I don't think she was fair to you. I think she used you. And that makes me a bad person?

Mike: You have no idea what she's been going through.

Pilar: Well, I don't care! It's no excuse. And I know you are protective of her. But is it my fault that she decided to go back to her husband? I'm not trying to hurt you. I know how hard this has been. But it's not fair to take your frustrations out on me. All I ever wanted was to make you happy.

Mike: Whatever you wanted, it wasn't about me.

Pilar: That is not true. You know how much I care about you, how good we are together. I know we could do it right if we could just start over.

Mike: Okay, you know what? I don't want to start over. I want you to go.

Pilar: But if you could just give me another chance --

Mike: There is no chance in hell that you and I will ever be together again. Okay? Take your stuff and get out!

Curtis: Didn't they chop down a bunch of oak trees when they built the zoo?

Aaron: Yeah, but can you hear the world from there? What about the bees?

Curtis: They have bees in zoos.

Aaron: In hives, genius, not in zoos. Isn't that right, Alison?

Alison: What?

Curtis: Were you listening?

Alison: To what? No. I didn't hear a thing. I just came over to say hi to you because Chris was on the phone --

Chris: Alison. Alison, don't help the competition.

Curtis: Like she has a clue.

Chris: Are you kidding? She's my secret weapon. Come on. So? You have any thoughts?

Alison: One. This is a joke. Chris, it's crazy. And the poem. It's stupid. And half the people -- they're already on their way to the zoo.

Chris: They're wrong. Okay? It's not at the zoo.

Alison: How do you know?

Chris: Okay. The -- the opening line of the poem talks about a founding timber that fell with a moan.

Alison: So they chopped down trees to build the zoo.

Chris: No, no, no -- it's not about a tree. It's about the founder of the town. Mason Wood. You remember him?

Alison: No.

Chris: Fifth grade. Civics class. He died at Oakdaleís first fourth of July.

Alison: So then where does this timber live?

Chris: He lived in a log cabin -- that's it.

Alison: What?

Chris: I know where the key is!

Doc: Margo, wait, wait, wait --

Margo: No, no! I don't want to do this.

Doc: I got your signal.

Margo: What signal? I didn't even talk to you.

Doc: You don't have to say anything. I know what you're thinking --

Margo: Oh? Oh, you do?

Doc: Margo, I haven't seen you at WOAK. Ever.

Margo: And today my husband asked me to bring down some legal documents for my mother-in-law to sign. So it had nothing to do with you, Doc.

Doc: Sorry, I just thought --

Margo: No, you didn't think. You never think. You just want what you want. I'm not gonna do this, doc. I'm a married woman. I have children. You'll lose your job.

Doc: I know. But when I see you, I just can't help it. And you're right, I don't think about you and your family. I don't think about me and my career. I just have to touch you.

Margo: Oh, stop. Stop, stop, stop, stop.

Doc: Margo, don't you see.

Margo: Stop.

Doc: Don't you see that if we don't let ourselves do this, if we don't enjoy what we both want, we'll get careless. And that's when people will get hurt --

Margo: And don't you see, that's all the more reason that we should stay away from each other.

Doc: We canít. At this point, we have an en.

Margo: We have a what?

Doc: An en -- that's like a karmic bond between -- [Margo laughs] Don't give me that look.

Margo: I don't believe that. You don't believe that.

Chris: Mason wood's home was torn down.

Alison: So where was it?

Chris: This is so brilliant, whoever thought of this. They built WOAK on right top of it. You remember the line in the poem that talks about hearing storied about the world from home? Well, it's a television studio. They broadcast stories about the world.

Alison: Okay. But what does that have to do with a virgin and bees? And all that math?

Chris: Well, I don't know. But we'll figure it out. We just need to get over there and look around.

[Beeper beeps]

Alison: Chris, have you been to WOAK lately? It's huge.

Chris: Yeah, I know. And I have to get to the hospital.

Alison: No, no, no! You can't!

Chris: Look, get over there. And I'll meet you over there as soon as I can.

Alison: No, Chris, I can't find this out on my own.

Chris: But Alison, you're already halfway there.

Alison: Chris, I am terrible at riddles.

Chris: Okay. So stop trying to solve the riddle and start trying to figure out where they've hidden the key.

Alison: But -- "the virgin you can see. But beware of the bees"? What bees?

Tom: All right. Mason Wood. This guy dropped dead right in front of his log cabin.

Casey: Alison, that's cheating. Dad, she was eavesdropping --

Alison: No, I wasnít. I knew that. And everybody knows that. Founding timber? And please.

Tom: Good. Then at least we're all on the same page.

Casey: Good?

Tom: Competition. It's the spice of life. What do you say we get going so we beat Alison and Chris to the punch.

Emily: Go, go, go, go --

Aaron: I'm gonna go get the car. You recheck what we've got.

Curtis: I'm on it. Aaron, it's me. We missed something. It's not at WOAK. It's in that courtyard by the old library, under Mason Wood's memorial plaque. That'll teach her.

Simon: Ooh. What? There's a rabbit chewing at my ankle.

Katie: Snickers, you bad boy. Why is he doing that?

Simon: Oh, you little monster.

Katie: He's never like that. You are going in your cage till you behave.

Simon: All right. How about that bubble bath?

Katie: Coming right up. [Doorbell rings] Oh, if that's Henry, do not let him talk you into that contest.

Simon: I'll give him a few bucks and send him off to the movies.

Pilar: I'm back.

Nurse #1: What are you doing here, Chris?

Dr Hughes: Well, he works here, unless something's happened that I don't know about.

Nurse #2: One of the other nurses saw him at the kickoff for "keys to the kingdom" contest.

Dr Hughes: The what?

Nurse #1: It's so exciting, Dr. Hughes. The winner gets $300,000. Boy, what I could do with that kind of cash.

Nurse #2: You and me both.

Dr Hughes: Is that the contest that "The City Times" is running?

Chris: Alison and I were a team for a minute. But then I got paged and had to come back to the hospital.

Dr Hughes: What's the matter with you? You're a physician. At the end of the day, isn't it a lot more fulfilling to know that you've helped people, instead of running around town in some silly contest with a one-in-a-million chance to win some silly jackpot? I'm not the first guy that ever said this, but money isn't everything.

[Party sounds]

Dr. Hughes: Maybe I was wrong.

Kim: Excuse me, please. I'm sorry. Excuse me. Listen, excuse me. Listen, listen, I'm sorry. Hello. Stop this! This is a television studio! And we're trying to work here --

Susan: Relax. It's a game.

Emily: And the sooner we find the key, the sooner our -- will be outta your hair.

Kim: I have no idea where this key is. I have no idea. And if I had known, I would never have allowed -- stay out of this!

Susan: Tell it to your grandson.

Kim: Stay out of this! Stay out of here.

Tom: I know it's here. But where?

Casey: What about the rest of the poem. The virgin? The bees?

Tom: The virgin's gotta refer to the Virgin Mary --

Casey: Holy Name Church is across the street. And they have a statue on the steeple. Only there's no windows here -- except up in Grandma's office --

Tom: No, Grandma's windows -- they face the park.

Tom and Casey: The roof.

Casey: Grandma -- Grandma --

Kim: What? What? I have no idea where the key is. I'm sorry. Don't even bother asking --

Tom: But we do.

Casey: Those stairs -- do they go up to the roof?

Kim: Yes. You can't go up there. There's a beehive up there. I called the exterminator, but -- you're going to get hurt! Wait, wait, wait --

[Voices talking over each other]

Kim: Stop, stop! There are bees up there. You're going to get -- oh, why bother?

Casey: This has gotta be the place. But how do we know where to look?

Tom: Read me the last line of the poem again.

Casey: All those numbers -- 340 -- six back, two down. It sounds like a crossword puzzle.

Tom: It's gotta be in relation to the statue. If the statue is at zero -- yeah. That's got to be 340.

Casey: Close enough.

Tom: What next?

Casey: Six back. Steps, you think?

Tom: It's worth a try. One, two, three, four. Here.

Curtis: He can't do that --

Aaron: His Grandmother's gonna kill him.

Curtis: Maybe his Grandmother told him where it was?

Aaron: Nah.

Emily: Hey, Mom. They're digging!

Susan: Oh, if that's what it takes to get that stupid key, they can keep it. I've got surgery first thing in the morning.

Emily: No, I just got a brand new manicure -- all right, all right.

Casey: I got it! I got it! I got --

[Casey yells]

Curtis: We were so close, man.

Aaron: Don't worry, the next time -- we'll get 'em.

Emily: That is so unfair.

Susan: You are one lucky guy, Tom.

Margo: I canít. I can't do this --

Doc: We have to. We have to. Right now.

Margo: I can't do it right now. Somebody will see us --

Doc: Then let's go to my place --

Margo: To the Lakeview? Half of Oakdale will see us there. Doc, I can't do this. I can't ruin my life -- oh!

Simon: What do you want?

Pilar: Well, I thought we could chat --

Simon: I'm not giving you another cent.

Pilar: This isn't about money.

Simon: Okay, then. Then what? We have got nothing else to discuss.

Katie: Hey, babe? Who was it?

Pilar: Do you want to tell her? Or should I?

Announcer: On the next "As the World Turns --"

Carly: Alison.

Alison: I know what you two are doing, and I think it totally bites.

Simon: Just keep your mouth shut!

Katie: Okay, what is going on? What's taking so long?

Jennifer: So, when are we leaving?

Dusty: We're not leaving, not yet.
