Julia: Hey, guess what Mrs. Woodson told me.

J.J.: Who?

Julia: Mrs. Woodson, your great new teacher. We met her yesterday, remember?

J.J.: Oh, yeah.

Julia: Yeah, you know what she said? You're in the only class that has more boys than girls. Finally -- you're out of girl-land, dude. Isn't that great? Hey, are you nervous about starting a new school?

J.J.: Nah.

Julia: Then what's wrong?

J.J.: Daddy!

Jack: Hey --

J.J.: You came!

Jack: Of course I did. I'm so glad to see you.

J.J.: Me, too.

Julia: Me, too.

Carly: So, Jack spent the night at the hospital.

Rosanna: Oh, wow. How is Aaron this morning?

Carly: He's not awake, yet. And Jack is still there. And, I know, I sound like I'm complaining, and I shouldn't be complaining, I'm sure it was very good for Holden to have Jack there with him.

Rosanna: Now the last thing you said was that you and Jack were connecting, I thought.

Carly: It was wonderful until Julia knocked on the door. So I think I'm gonna go over to the hospital after I bring Parker to school and check on Jack. Do you think you could hang out here for a while?

Rosanna: Oh, sure.

Carly: Yeah?

Rosanna: Yeah, I have all day. I can take care of anything.

Carly: Good. I won't be too long.

Rosanna: Okay, great. Do what you got to do. Knock yourself out.

Carly: All right, did you brush those teeth, sir?

Parker: And washed my hands with soap.

Rosanna: Hello.

Parker: Hi, Aunt Ro.

Rosanna: Is this your briefcase?

Parker: Thanks.

Rosanna: Good luck.

Carly: All right, let's go. Have a nice day.

Rosanna: Bye.

Carly: Hi, bye.

Paul: Hi.

Carly: I'm sorry, I'm in such a rush.

Paul: No, it's fine. Rosanna called. She said that --

Carly: She's in there.

Paul: Okay. I'll see you later.

Rosanna: Hey. You must've missed me.

Paul: I did.

Rosanna: I was only gone one night.

Paul: Yeah, but it was a very long night.

Rosanna: What happened? What's wrong?

Paul: Barbara's out of the hospital.

Rosanna: Is she in jail?

Paul: No. She's staying at Halís.

Rosanna: What?

[Phone rings]

Will: Hello.

Barbara: Hi, honey. It's Mom.

Will: You're not supposed to call me.

Barbara: Well, this is for you, not me. But if you think it's a bad idea, I completely understand.

Will: Well, I do. So good-bye.

Jennifer: Hey! Looks like I just made it.

Will: What are you doin' here, Jen.

Jennifer: Well, I have a meeting for Street Jeans here in about an hour. I thought I'd come by early and say hello.

Will: You're having your meeting here instead of the office?

Jennifer: Yeah, it's more comfortable.

Will: And that way you could check up on me and make it look casual?

Jennifer: Didn't work?

Will: Not too subtle.

Jennifer: You know, forget about being subtle, I am worried about you, Will.

Will: Don't be.

Jennifer: I can't help it. You know, I hear that you're the one that convinced Dad to take Mom in instead of sending her to jail and I'm just -- I'm afraid that she did a real number on you.

Will: It wasn't like that, okay? So don't think about it. How was California?

Jennifer: It was great. The photo shoot was fantastic.

Will: Mm-hmm.

Jennifer: Everything went off without a hitch.

Will: Yeah, nothing like spending a day in the boiling hot desert.

Jennifer: Actually, it wasn't so bad.

John: They look good, Mike.

Mike: Excuse me?

John: The renovations that you're doing on the O.R. They look great, so far.

Mike: Oh, thank you, thank you. I brought the plans for the second phase.

John: Yeah, listen, I know we were scheduled to meet right about now, but I was wondering if we could maybe postpone this for about an hour? I've got to interview some operating room staff and they're about ready to leave.

Mike: Mmm, sorry, I got a meeting across town with Jennifer Munson.

John: Is this part of your second career as the blue jean pin-up boy?

Mike: Nobody's sticking pins in me.

John: Ha, ha -- yet! So, the plans and I, we really can't compete what you got over there.

Mike: No, you really canít. Can I call you to schedule later?

John: Yeah, sure.

Mike: All right, thanks.

Jack: I couldn't let you start school without supplies.

J.J.: Thanks.

Julia: What did you do, bring the whole store?

Jack: No, only the good stuff. J.J., There's a pen in there with invisible ink.

J.J.: Sweet!

Julia: Hey, is that for his homework?

Jack: No, so he can pass notes with secret codes, of course.

Julia: Were you a juvenile delinquent?

Jack: What?

Julia: Is that what we have ourselves mixed up in?

J.J.: No, he's the best dad ever!

Paul: At some point during the standoff with Decker, Barbara saved Will's life. That's how will he sees it, anyway.

Rosanna: And that's why he doesn't want his mother to go to jail?

Paul: Well, that's part of it. I mean, Will's point is that it doesn't work. I mean, we can't keep abandoning Barbara. She just doesn't get any better, and she just keeps coming back.

Rosanna: You realize that she might not have to pay for what she did? That she just could be out on the street again? I mean, that could happen.

Paul: No, I will do everything in my power to make sure that Barbara stays in jail. [Rosanna sighs] Wait a minute. Hey, don't -- don't be mad at me. I hate this too. Look, you gotta try to see this from Will's point of view, all right? He walks in and he sees his mother being strangled by some psychopath. I mean, he comes this close to seeing his mom slaughtered right in front of him. I mean, if he doesn't want the woman the go to jail right away, I mean, you can kinda see his point.

Rosanna: Wait, wait, you think that I'm mad at Will?

Paul: I -- I don't know what to think.

Rosanna: I'm not angry at Will. I'm trying to figure what we can do to save him.

Will: Mom didn't do anything to me. It was the whole situation. That stuff with Decker and I knew she couldn't stay in the hospital. And her going to jail wasn't gonna help her or anybody.

Jennifer: It's not your job to help her, Will. You have to remember that she's --

Will: I remember. That's why I'm stayin' here with Paul. So, it's okay.

Jennifer: Good. But she may still find a way to get to you.

Will: And I'll be ready.

Jennifer: Are you sure?

Will: Yeah. And besides, she's got one of those ankle monitor things on. She can't even leave Dad's house.

Jennifer: Well, that won't stop her. She'll figure out something --

Will: Something to try to suck me in again. I know. And -- I just spent months in therapy dissecting her and what she's done to me. And, you know what, I'm okay. So, I know all her tricks, you know. I can handle it. Give me some credit.

Jennifer: You sound so 16 right now. "I can handle it. Give me some credit."

Will: Well, will you just give me some credit?

Jennifer: Oh, yes, yes, yes. I will give you extra credit.

Will: Well, I gotta go.

Jennifer: Okay, but if Mom tries anything, you remember that you can call me or Paul --

Will: Bye, Jen. Have a nice day.

Jennifer: Fine. Go.

[Cell phone rings]

Will: Wow, two calls in one day, Mom. Are you going for a record?

Barbara: Honey, you left your mp3 player here.

Will: I did?

Barbara: Yeah, I mean, you packed in such a hurry it's understandable.

Will: Well, I left a lot of stuff there. This is only temporary.

Barbara: Honey, this isn't just stuff. You told me that at the hospital you listened to this all the time. It's important to you. You should have it.

Will: I'll make arrangements for tomorrow or something.

Barbara: Well, what about today? You could use it to drown out all those clucking chickens on that farm.

Will: Maybe I'll have Dad bring it to me.

Barbara: He's already left for the day. Look, Will, this doesn't have to be difficult. I'm just gonna leave it right here, on the kitchen table, and I'll just go upstairs. And I'll stay up there until I know you've come and gone.

Will: You have just thought of everything, haven't you?

Barbara: Honey, it'll be okay. You can come by -- you won't have to see me at all.

Will: Good-bye, Mom.

[Knock on door]

Barbara: Kim. Wow, what a surprise.

Kim: I'll say it is. I was amazed when I found out you'd left the hospital and were back here at Halís house -- of all places.

Barbara: Well, I'm -- I'm still confined. House arrest.

Kim: I heard. I thought maybe you could use some company.

Barbara: Thank you.

Kim: I got some muffins and I proceeded to clear my schedule and I thought maybe we could spend the morning together.

Barbara: Oh, I -- I canít.

Kim: Oh. Oh, that's too bad. You have other plans?

Barbara: No, no, it's not that.

Kim: Oh, well, I'm disappointed. You and I have a lot of catching up to do.

J.J.: Check out these stickers.

Julia: Oh, dinosaurs, wow.

J.J.: Hey, Dad, I got a great idea. Want to help me decorate my workbook with them after school?

Jack: Ah -- we'll have to see.

J.J.: You can come live with us again.

Jack: Ah -- buddy, I'd love to come live with you again. It's complicated, that's all.

J.J.: Don't you want to?

Jack: Of course, I do. I miss you both, so much.

Julia: Okay, okay, let's go! You don't want to be late.

J.J.: I can go myself.

Julia: Okay, just hold on. Fine. Give me a minute. I'll see you later. At the hospital?

Jack: Yeah, I should get going. You have a good day. Bye.

J.J.: Bye. He said he missed us. Does that mean he'll come back soon?

Julia: Hey, kiddo, stop worrying, okay? You have a new school waiting for you. Lots of new friends to meet, new people -- you go in there and you have a great day. You listen to you teachers, pay attention, have fun. Okay? All right, I'll see you later. J.J., what is that look?

J.J.: How can I have fun when he's here?

Carly: Have everything you -- hi.

Hal: Hey, when'd you get here?

Emily: Hey. Yesterday, actually. I came as soon as I heard about Aaron.

Hal: So, you've been here all night?

Emily: Yeah. It's okay. Daniel is with my mom. He's fine.

Hal: Okay.

Emily: Which is a good thing 'cause I know how busy you are with the case and everything.

Hal: Yeah, just wanted to come by and see if there was any change in Aaronís condition.

Emily: No, he's still out.

Hal: Yeah.

Emily: It's gonna be attempted murder, right, Hal? At least.

Hal: If he lives it'll be attempted murder. [Hal sighs] Em, I just want to see justice done, that's all. No matter who's guilty.

Emily: I know that.

Hal: I wouldn't blame you if you doubted it right now.

Emily: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I never should have run out on you. I know that. It's just, I saw Barbara in my house, and I just --

Hal: And you blew up. And you had every right to. You're right, Em. I feel guilty. About what happened to Will? That's one of the main reasons why I agreed to go along with what he wanted -- to let Barbara stay with us. I'm sorry that this has put you in a bad position.

Emily: It's not just me. Do you honest -- do you honestly believe that it's gonna do will any good to have her live there?

Hal: I don't know. All I know is that I had to do something. I had to try. What?

Emily: It's just this affects so many people. And I just don't understand what good it does to give Barbara yet another chance to mess up everybody's lives.

Barbara: You're my first visitor. Probably will be my last.

Kim: Barbara, are you sure you don't want to sit down and -- have a cup of tea and tell me everything that's been happening that got you here?

Barbara: I canít. I really canít. It's not good for my therapy. I mean, that's what the doctor told me. He told me I just need to keep busy -- not think too much.

Kim: That must be a little difficult, considering that you're stuck in this house.

Barbara: Well, yeah, but you should have seen this house when I got here. The shape it was in, I mean, and that's probably my fault as well, because they were very distracted. So I'm just doing my best to clean up around here and make all of Halís favorite foods.

Kim: Oh, Barbara --

Barbara: I -- Kim, I know what you're thinking, and it's not that. I'm not trying to replace Emily. I'm not, I -- I just -- have to -- I have to do something, you know. Try and make amends.

Kim: Cooking and cleaning?

Barbara: That's something concrete that I can do for my family. And if they reject it -- they do. But I can't let them slip away without trying.

Kim: Well, I don't know. Sounds to me, as if, you're setting yourself up for a fall.

Carly: Hello, Julia. I didn't realize that J.J. was going to school here.

Julia: Yeah, well, we live here now, so -- for a while, anyway.

Carly: Ah -- there's that warning bell, so you better go, okay? Have a good day.

Parker: Okay.

Carly: And I'll be here to pick you up.

Parker: Bye.

Carly: All right? Love ya.

Carly: So.

Julia: Yeah.

Carly: How are things with Aaron this morning?

Julia: He was unconscious still, actually, when I left.

Carly: Holden must have been happy that Jack was there.

Julia: Yeah. He was. That was good. They stayed in the chapel for a long time and then they took shifts in Aaronís room. I'm sorry that I had to disturb you guys.

Carly: Oh, no. That's okay. We're making progress. We can pick up where we left off.

Julia: Progress?

Carly: Things are starting to come back to Jack. I'm surprised that he didn't mention it.

Julia: He didn't mention your name once. Anyway, I gotta get to work. So you have a great day.

J.J.: Hey! Those are mine!

Carly: Are they yours? I just found them.

J.J.: You took them!

Carly: No, honey, I wouldn't take these. Here.

J.J.: You want to take Jack away, too! But you can't have him! He's my dad and Mom won't let you take him!

[Carly sobs]

Les: Ma'am, you look like you could use some help.

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

Carly: Jack's already married. I'm his wife, not Julia.

Jack: But I do feel something. And not just for the kids -- for Carly, too.

Rosanna: I think we have to find some way to make sure that he doesn't get hurt again.

Paul: Whoa, hold on a second. Rosanna, this is not your problem.

Rosanna: Well, if it's your problem that means it's my problem, too.

Paul: No, I don't want it like that.

Rosanna: Well, I'm sorry. I love you. And you happen to be Will's big brother. So that means I'm going to butt into your life and his life a little bit, too.

Paul: Well, that's very sweet. I love you, too.

Rosanna: Okay.

Paul: Okay? Okay what?

Rosanna: I think I know what we can do for Will and for us.

Barbara: Oh, Will! Oh, honey, I'm sorry. I didn't know you were here.

Will: I didn't expect to see you.

Barbara: Yeah, I -- I'll be quick. I just need to stir.

Will: No, it's done. I already checked.

Barbara: Oh.

Will: You gotta beat the eggs now.

Barbara: Thanks. Any idea where Emily put my eggbeater?

Will: She uses the electric mixer.

Barbara: Of course. Found my whisk. Thanks.

Will: I didn't do anything.

Barbara: Well, you're my lucky charm. You have fun today, all right?

Will: It's a cheese soufflť, right?

Barbara: Yeah. To go with the roast.

Will: You always said that was a two-person job. That's why you made me help.

Barbara: Well, I -- I'll just see how I do on my own. And if it doesn't work, I'll just make something else. But it was always your father's favorite. And I have to do something to show him how grateful I am that he's letting me stay here. Okay.

Will: You stir, Mom. I'll get it.

Barbara: Thanks, Will.

Jennifer: Hi.

Mike: Hey.

Jennifer: You're early.

Mike: Yeah, I hope you don't mind. My early meeting cancelled. I can leave --

Jennifer: No, no. Oh, no. It's fine. Come in. Come in. Can I get you anything?

Mike: No, I'm good.

Jennifer: Well, we have coffee, soda, water, tea seltzer?

Mike: Really, I'm good.

Jennifer: Okay. The proofs are on the table if you want to take a look.

Mike: Thanks. Okay, this is officially weird.

Jennifer: Oh, yeah?

Mike: Yeah.

Jennifer: I sound like a junior league hostess.

Mike: Pretty much, yeah.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Mike: Maybe we should talk about what happened last night.

Jennifer: What happened?

Mike: Nothing, really. The car broke down. We -- we got a little punchy.

Jennifer: Yeah. It was just one of those in-the-moment things. I'm glad we're on the same page.

Mike: Sure.

Jennifer: Because I would feel terrible if we messed up our working relationship.

Mike: Not at all. It's not a problem.

Jennifer: Good.

Julia: Hi.

Jack: Hey.

Julia: Is Holden still inside?

Jack: Yeah. He just needs a minute, then I'm gonna take him to breakfast.

Julia: Thanks for being there for J.J. this morning. It meant the world to him. You know?

Jack: I'm just sorry it has to be like this for now.

Julia: I ran into Carly this morning after you left, Jack. She said that you guys have made some progress.

Jack: Yeah.

Julia: What does that mean?

Jack: Maybe that's something we should talk about when we have a little more time.

Julia: No. I have time right now. And so do you. Is this something I have to sit down for?

Jack: I don't know.

Julia: Just tell me, Jack.

Jack: It's not -- look, Julia, I still don't remember Parker and Sage and Carly. Or anything that happened before. But I do -- feel something. And not just for the kids. For Carly, too.

Les: You okay?

Carly: No. But I will be.

Les: Yeah, it's hard when a little kid's mad at you like that.

Carly: No joke. His mother, she could yell at me and I'd give it right back. But a kid?

Les: You have problems with his mother?

Carly: Why do you ask?

Les: Oh, it's just -- I know her. And I know she can be real trouble.

Carly: You know Julia?

Les: We were married. I'm J.J.'s father, Les Sweeny.

Carly: Well, hi. Carly Snyder.

Les: Pleased to meet you, Carly.

Carly: You, too. So you -- you were married to Julia?

Les: For a while. When we were divorced, I got joint custody of J.J. But then Julia took off, broke our agreement.

Carly: Is that why you're here?

Les: Well, I've tried to let her go, but, I mean, what kind of man could forget his own son? I can't live with what Juliaís done.

Carly: So Julia took your son? She violated a court order?

Les: Yeah, I guess she figured she had the right. I mean, she is -- she is the mother.

Carly: Still -- you know, it's funny. There's been a lot of digging around in my past, and I never thought to ask about Juliaís -- who J.J.'s father is, and so on.

Les: Well, most people donít. They just see a single mother, and they assume everything's okay. Yeah, some guy must've dumped her. I mean, I suppose that happens often enough.

Carly: But not with you?

Les: What can I say? I mean, I was -- I was the best husband I could be to her. But, you know, but I got laid off, and pretty soon I couldn't buy the things that she wanted, and after the divorce, she just took off.

Carly: And she didn't tell you where she was going?

Les: Lord, no. No, I think the idea was just to forget I ever existed. You know, it's a better story that way. Single mom, all alone, raising her boy by herself.

Carly: Oh, that is awful.

Les: Well, I -- took me a while, but I finally caught up with them in Missouri, this little town called St. Genevieve.

Carly: Well, that's another story altogether.

Les: Yeah. She was with this guy named Jack, and she said they were married. I don't know how that affects my rights --

Carly: Well, it doesnít.

Les: I think you'd be surprised. Julia can talk pretty good game in court.

Carly: No, no, no -- what I mean is, she's not married. That was a big misunderstanding. It's not legal.

Les: What?

Carly: Jack's already married. I'm his wife, not Julia.

Jennifer: So, what do you think about this one?

Mike: They all pretty much look the same to me.

Jennifer: Are you kidding? I mean, look at the difference between these two, the expression and the mood.

Mike: Okay.

Jennifer: Okay?

Mike: Well, yeah. Okay, I mean, it's just -- it's me. I'm -- I'm not sure what you're looking for.

Jennifer: You. That's what made the photo shoot so great, and this part so hard. This one, we can use for the teen market, and then this one, we could use in "Vogue" or one of the higher-end markets, and -- and then this one -- well, this one says -- bass fishing.

Mike: Well, hold on. I do not say bass fishing.

Jennifer: You were feeling good about yourself.

Mike: You know what? I'll feel proud when I don't have a team of groomers following me.

Jennifer: They never should have printed that one.

Mike: Oh, that's so not normal.

Jennifer: No, it's bad, but that's not what you look like.

Mike: No, no, no. I'm holding onto this as a warning, if nothing else.

Jennifer: No!

Mike: No.

Jennifer: It is so not you. It is, it is! I'm afraid it is.

Jennifer: No, you're way too gorgeous Ė

Hal: Oh, hi, Kim.

Kim: Hi, how's it going? Any word on Aaron?

Hal: He's still out cold. Holden's been here all night,

Kim: Yeah, I understand. By the way, I just -- I just have come from seeing Barbara.

Hal: Really?

Kim: Yeah.

Hal: So, how did she seem to you?

Kim: Oh, subdued. Almost contrite. I got the feeling that Barbara would like to try to find herself again.

Emily: Oh, please. She could -- she could use the police blotters to do that. Maybe her arrest records will give her a few clues.

Kim: Well, you've got a point. But it's kind of heartless.

Emily: Yeah, I'm funny that way about people who kidnap me at gunpoint. Come on, Kim! Her last offense led to the death of a baby. I cannot believe you're falling for her line.

Kim: It's not that I'm falling for her line. It's that I think Barbara is mentally unstable.

Emily: Barbara is a criminal who would like you to believe she's mentally unstable.

Kim: I have known her her entire life. I know how manipulative she can be. I know that she's done terrible things. But then so have we all. Right, Emily? Not so long ago, to your own sister? Along with my son?

Will: It looks great.

Barbara: Yeah, well, I hope it is. It's been so long since I paid attention to what matters. All I could do was focus on being a star designer, and not really paying attention to -- well, you don't really need a list of my failings, do you? Nobody does. It's a miracle that your father is still speaking to me.

Will: Yeah, it is. And yeah, you know, you've made a lot of mistakes, Mom, but being a designer isn't one of them. You're good at it. You should think about drawing again.

Barbara: Yeah, I can wallpaper my cell with sketches of Barbara Ryan Originals.

Will: Whatever.

Barbara: Will, honey -- honey, I know that you were trying to help. Really.

Will: No, no, I wasnít.

Barbara: Yes, you were. You were. And you're right. I should start drawing again. I would love to start drawing again. But you know what they've got around here? They've got crayons and coloring books -- two on space exploration, one with dinosaurs. And I just don't have any supplies around here. I mean, I can't get out of the house.

Will: And this is where you ask for my help, right?

Barbara: No -- you think that I -- no.

Will: Mom, you know, you can just order them off of the internet. They'll bring them right to the front door.

Barbara: And that's a great idea. It is. And I'm sure that one of my credit cards still works. And I'll get it in, what? A week? Ten days?

Will: Or you could have Dad go out and pick some stuff up for you.

Barbara: I sure could. He could do it on a lunch break. If he ever took one. No, I think the internet is a much better idea.

Will: Say it.

Barbara: What? Say what? Honey -- no, Will.

Will: Yeah. You want me to volunteer to go get you art supplies.

Barbara: No, honey. I would never impose on you like that.

[Will laughs]

Rosanna: Hear me out all the way to the end, okay?

Paul: Sure.

Rosanna: Okay. I think this would send a clear message to Barbara. I think that it would give Will a home, a family, someplace where he could feel that she couldn't get to him.

Paul: That sounds great.

Rosanna: But it's not just about them.

Paul: Okay.

Rosanna: Really.

Paul: Really?

Rosanna: I mean, I want this. For us, too.

Paul: Well, that -- that sounds great. I'm in. But --

Rosanna: I don't know, because there's no nouns here, there's no verbs, I don't --

Rosanna: Oh. Uh, marry me.

Paul: Well, there's a verb.

Rosanna: That -- didn't come out like I wanted to. Paul, would you do me the honor? Would you marry me?

Jennifer: Oh, this is crazy. This is crazy.

Mike: Okay.

Jennifer: This is Paulís place, and -- they're gonna be here any minute.

Mike: I know. I know. I know. We should stop. Before they get here.

Kim: I'll see you later.

Emily: I'm sorry. I should have come to see you after the wedding didn't happen. I owed you and your family an apology.

Kim: Oh, Emily, I don't need an apology. And I'm really not trying to attack you. All I'm saying is, we all make mistakes. And so maybe we need to remember to accept the possibility of forgiveness.

Hal: Kim, do you think Barbaraís sincere?

Kim: Oh, Hal, your guess is as good as mine.

Hal: What if she's not? What if all this is just a big scam?

Kim: Well, the one thing that I know for sure about Barbara is that she will show her true colors one way or the other, and soon enough.

[Both laugh]

Barbara: Okay, okay. Let's start this all over. Will, I have absolutely no right to ask this of you, but would you please get me some art supplies and bring them to me before the end of the week?

Will: Much better.

Barbara: Well?

Will: Charcoal or pastels?

Barbara: Both, my sweet boy.

Will: So I'll just leave them by the front door. I won't come in, and we won't talk again.

Barbara: Why? Of course. Of course. You're right. You're right.

Rosanna: Paul? I'm sorry. Do you want flowers?

Paul: Oh, no, no.

Rosanna: Should I get a ring?

Paul: Please --

Rosanna: Or do you want me to get down on a knee? I could do that.

Paul: No, don't do that.

Rosanna: There's a proposal on the table here. Would you marry me?

Paul: No.

Jack: So it's not like I remembered events when I was looking at the pictures, but I could feel them. I'm not making any sense.

Julia: No, you are.

Jack: And seeing them again now -- not just the kids. Carly, too. I -- I like them.

Julia: Um, well, yeah. I mean, I'm sure they're -- we always knew that there was a reason why you were married.

Jack: Yeah, but I didn't know. I mean, it could have been like my first marriage. And all the stuff we heard about Carly -- but she's good people. I'm sure of that.

Julia: Okay. Well, I'm glad. That's -- that's good. I mean, that's great.

Jack: I think so.

Julia: Yeah, that's really good.

Jack: I'm not sure you're -- I'm not sure how you're gonna feel about -- Julia, I have something to ask you.

Julia: Sure.

Jack: And it's big.

Julia: Okay. Ask away.

Jack: When the divorce is final, and we're legally married, I'd like to stay here in Oakdale.

Julia: That's it?

Jack: So I can be near my kids. I want to be friends with their mother.

Julia: Of course you do. Of course you do, Jack. Of course. That's fine. I mean, we can live anywhere, honey, as long as we're together.

Carly: Are you okay?

Les: Jack is your husband? Julia's not married to him?

Carly: No, she's not.

Les: No. This changes everything. I mean, I can take her back to court, can't I? I got a joint custody agreement, legal and binding.

Carly: Then you should be able to see your son.

Les: I should be able to take him back to El Paso with me. And Julia should go, too. She has to go. She wasn't supposed leave the state with him in the first place.

Carly: Well, it sounds like you have a case. You ought to pursue it.

Les: You ever tangled with Julia? Hmm?

Carly: Not exactly.

Les: A little bit?

Carly: Maybe.

Les: Yeah. Well, then you should know that she gets kind of ugly when she gets crossed. I mean, I show up saying something that she doesn't want to hear, she'll throw Jack in the middle of all this, and I won't have a chance. Oh, man. You know, who I really feel really bad for in all this is J.J. I mean, we used to be so close. We did everything together.

Carly: You must miss him very much.

Les: You don't know the half of it. You know, all I really need is a few minutes alone with J.J. and Julia. And since I'm guessing that you don't want your husband mixed up in any of this, well, maybe you can help.

Carly: Maybe I can.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

[Knock on door]

Jennifer: The meeting.

Mike: Well, it can't be your brother, he's got a key.

Jennifer: Then it must be Jordan.

Rosanna: But you don't want to marry me?

Paul: I don't want you riding to the rescue with a marriage proposal because you're worried about my little brother. No, that -- that I don't want.

Les: You take your husband off for some one-on-one time. That will give me a chance to talk to J.J. and Julia alone.
