Lucy: Name is Craig Montgomery. Yes, Detective Margo Hughes' brother. I'm his daughter. I just want to know if there's any more developments. He's officially what? Okay, thank you. [Phone rings] Hello?

Rafael: Hey, Lucy, it's me. I'm at the gym.

Lucy: Should you be using the phone there? If Dominic overhears you and finds out what you're doing, there's no telling what he'll do.

Rafael: Look, I'm finding out where they're keeping your father. I'm not going to leave till we've got something to take to the police. All right? I just wanted to let you know that I'm okay and I'll call you as soon as I get what we need.

Lucy: Hello? Hello?

Sierra: Ah -- just the person I'm looking for. Do you have a minute?

Lucy: Sure. What's up?

Sierra: I just wanted to let you know that Margo filed a missing person's report on your father.

Lucy: I just heard.

Sierra: That's it? You're not upset?

Lucy: Well, sure. Of course. But I was thinking a lot about what you said the other day, and I think you're right. I just need to concentrate on me and getting my life together. And the police are on it now, what can I do that they can't?

Sierra: I don't believe one word of that.

Brother Francis: How are you feeling today?

Craig: You're later than usual. And I'm feeling that this is torture.

Brother Francis: Is that how it feels to be alone with your thoughts? Tortured? Have you thought about what brought you here?

Craig: Look, Brother Francis, if you're expecting Craigís change of heart, that ain't gonna happen. Okay? I like myself. I take responsibility for myself. Okay? Sure, I've made mistakes and other people have let me down. But, brother, my conscience is clear.

Brother Francis: Your conscience is clear?

Craig: Crystal.

Brother Francis: Then you won't mind telling me about -- Cabot.

Rosanna: Oh, thank you.

Paul: Oh.

Rosanna: Ooh.

Paul: You're an icicle.

Rosanna: Oh. I'll give you the hot version after you've warmed me up.

Paul: Excellent.

Rosanna: So why are we here instead of at home?

Paul: I wanted to talk to you away from Fairwinds.

Rosanna: Really, why?

Paul: I love you. And being married to you, I've fallen more in love with you than I ever thought I could imagine.

Rosanna: And?

Paul: But, I feel like there's something going on with you. And I just want you to know that whatever it is, you can talk to me about it.

Rosanna: I -- I said something awful to Will. And I wish I could take it all back.

Julia: I was walking past the toy store and there had to be at least a half a million people in there, all scrambling around looking for the perfect gift for their kids, and I thought -- I don't even know what you want. Well, you've got to get your list in soon. How about a new bike? Or one of those little remote control cars thingys? What about a home entertainment system?

J.J.: We don't have a home.

Julia: J.J., I know that I said that I was going to try to rent us a house before Christmas. And I'm sorry, I --

J.J.: It's okay.

Julia: How about a new football? You left your old one back in St. Genevieve.

J.J.: I don't need one. I don't have anybody to throw it to anymore.

Julia: You know, Jack loves you J.J., very, very, very, very much. And we'll see him every single day. And you know if you need him, all you have to do is pick up the phone. You believe me, don't you?

Parker: Come on, we might miss him! Do you see him yet?

Carly: Well, the sign said that Santaís is in his workshop, so --

Parker: Not Santa, Jack.

Carly: Well, maybe we're a little bit early.

Nancy: Sounds to me like somebody's trying to find Santa Claus.

Parker: Not Santa, Jack.

Nancy: Oh. Well, I haven't seen him yet, but if you'd like me to, I'll help you try to find him.

Parker: Okay, Mom?

Carly: Yes. Thank you very much. I'll meet you right back here, okay?

Jack: Hey.

Carly: Oh, hi, Jack.

Jack: Hi. I hope you haven't been waiting long.

Carly: No. No, we just got here.

Jack: Where's my boy?

Carly: He just went scurrying off that way looking for you.

Jack: Really? I thought Santa was the big attraction tonight.

Carly: Well, with you here, I think Santaís going to have to take a back seat.

Jack: Ah.

Carly: Are you okay? Are you sleeping? Are you eating?

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. Yeah. I'm good.

Carly: You are?

Jack: Yes.

Carly: You're sure?

Jack: Let's go find Parker before I have to go.

Carly: Go where?

Jack: I'm meeting J.J. and Julia. I'm having dinner with them together.

Carly: Oh.

Jack: What? What is it?

Carly: No, it's fine.

Jack: What did I do now?

Carly: Nothing. I can handle it.

Jack: Tell me.

Carly: I just thought maybe if you weren't doing anything later, maybe we could go and pick out a tree with Parker.

Parker: I found you!

Jack: You sure did.

Parker: Mom said we can get a tree later. Can I help you cut it down and everything?

Rosanna: Thank you very much. So, do you remember the day that Will was helping me carry the toys, Cabotís toys, out to the car? And you left the room for a minute, you made a phone call, um -- well, when I was alone -- are you sure you want to hear this?

Paul: Yeah, I want to hear this. You were alone and -- what?

Rosanna: I could've sworn I heard the sound of a ball bouncing and a baby laughing.

Paul: Rosanna, you really -- you should've mentioned something about this to me.

Rosanna: I know. I would've, but I just thought maybe I was losing my mind. Of course, I know now, that the ball had just fallen out of the box and rolled into the living room. But when it rolled in, I -- I don't know what I thought. I don't know what I thought, but I was just a raving lunatic and poor will, he walked in and I -- I accused him of playing tricks on me.

Paul: This is when I walked in on both of you and neither one of you would tell me what was going on?

Rosanna: Yeah.

Paul: You were shaking like a leaf.

Rosanna: Yes. I'm sorry. I just -- I don't know what was wrong with me. I just -- poor Will, he must have thought he's walked out of one loony bin into another.

Paul: You know, Will's a really smart kid. And I'm sure that he realizes how much you miss Cabot.

Rosanna: Yeah. With Christmas coming --

Paul: Absolutely.

Rosanna: It's just more on my mind than I thought. But it was no excuse to lash out at Will.

Paul: I'll take care of it. I will. I'll make everything all better.

Will: You guys should get a room.

Paul: Hey, Will.

Rosanna: Hey, Will.

Paul: What are you doing here?

Will: I saw your car parked out front, so I figured I'd see what's up.

Rosanna: Will, your timing couldn't be more perfect. I've got to run. I've got to meet Carly, and I'm late as it is. So why don't you two have a little catch-up, you know what I mean. And I'll -- I'll see you back at the house, right?

Paul: Sure.

Rosanna: Okay, great. Love you.

Paul: I love you.

Rosanna: Okay, bye.

Will: Okay, give it to me straight. What's really going on?

Carly: I tell you what, Parker. Why don't you and I get the ornaments and the lights down from the attic tonight, and then we'll get the tree another time, okay?

Parker: You promised!

Carly: No, now, that wasn't a promise. That was a "we'll see if Jack is free."

Parker: You're not free?

Jack: I'm sorry, Parker.

Parker: Why? Are you going to see that other kid?

Carly: His name is J.J. and when you get to know him --

Parker: I don't want to know him. I want --

Jack: What? What is it that you want?

Parker: I'll go see Santa now.

Jack: You sure?

Carly: Okay, all right, then we'll see you a little bit later then.

Nancy: There you are. Did Parker find you?

Jack: Yes, yeah. Thank you. How are you, Nancy?

Nancy: Desperate.

Jack: What, something I can help you with?

Nancy: We've run into a scheduling snafu with Santa and his elves. And he had a previous appointment and has to leave, and we have no one to replace him. I hate to disappoint the children.

Jack: Well, that's too bad. Yeah, it's got to be tough finding a Santa on such short notice. No. No, Nancy, not me.

Lisa: Oh, J.J., don't tell me there's something wrong with the ice cream. Here, let me sit down, okay? I have news for you. I have a very special person who comes in to make this ice cream fresh every single day. Now, if it's not up to par, say the word. I'll fire him on the spot.

Julia: You know, there's something that J.J. wants to ask you.

Lisa: Oh?

Julia: Uh-huh.

Lisa: What?

Julia: We were just wondering if it would be all right if we trimmed a tree in our room.

Lisa: Oh, sure. I think that's a splendid idea.

Julia: Really?

Lisa: Yeah.

Julia: See? See how easy that was?

Lisa: Yeah.

J.J.: Still, we don't have a fireplace. How is Santa gonna find me?

Lisa: Well, don't you worry about that. We have a very special fireplace right here in this hotel. And we keep it extinguished all day and all night on Christmas Eve so Santa can be all nice and cool when he arrives.

Julia: Well, Santa might not come, 'cause somebody hasn't written a letter to Santa yet.

Lisa: Oh, dear. Oh, I heard by way of the grapevine, Santa is at the Christmas fair right at this moment.

Julia: Really? Do you want to go sit on Santaís lap, hmm?

J.J.: As long as I'm home before dinnertime.

Julia: Okay. We're having dinner with Jack tonight.

Lisa: Well, you have a pretty full day ahead of you, huh?

Julia: Yeah, that sounds great. Do you want to go? Are you ready?

J.J.: Ready.

Julia: Okay, let's go see Santa.

Jack: Well, how is -- how is Santa?

Carly: Parker was the last one to sit on his lap. I think he must have had some kind of emergency back up in the North Pole.

Nancy: Uh, something like that. Oh, those poor children. They must have been crushed. I hate to see them disappointed.

Jack: I'm sure Santa will be back real soon. In fact, I guarantee it. There's something I have to take care of, Parker. I'll see you really soon, too, okay?

Parker: Where's he going now?

Carly: I don't know. But there is still a lot that we can do together. Do you want to go have a ride with a reindeer?

Parker: Real reindeer?

Carly: Yes, of course they're real. You want to see them? Okay. But just don't get too close, because I hear they get very hungry when they see cute little boys.

Dominic: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you doin' here? I thought you had a date with the D.A.

Rafael: I do. I'm gonna take back everything I swore about the fight.

Dominic: Well, what are you doing here then?

Rafael: My appointment's not till later.

Dominic: I hope for your sake you're not yanking my chain, 'cause you're the one who came back here lookin' for your second chance.

Rafael: And I appreciate you giving it to me.

Dominic: Maybe. I don't do favors for guys who can't remember who butters their bread.

Rafael: Hey, look --

Dominic: Got me?

Rafael: I got you. You can trust me, man. I'm your dog, man. You know that.

Dominic: And you know what happens to guys who cross me, right?

Rafael: It's not gonna happen.

Dominic: I'm glad to hear it. [Phone rings] I got to take that. That's an important call. Clear out, man.

Rafael: No problem.

Dominic: Dominic here. What you got for me?

Bud: Yeah, we got trouble.

Dominic: What kind?

Bud: Somebody's turning up the heat, and Montgomery must have friends in high places.

Dominic: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Not on the phone, idiot. They could be tapping this line.

Bud: What do you want me to do?

Dominic: Keep our guest on ice. I'll deal with him personally.

Bud: You're flying out?

Dominic: Tonight. I want my face to be the last face that SOB sees. Tell the pilot to fuel the plane up and file the flight plan.

Bud: I'm on it.

Dominic: All right. This will all be over very soon.

Rafael: Taking off?

Dominic: Yeah. I got some important business to take care of.

Rafael: Hey, if there's anything I can help you with, you know I got your back.

Dominic: You know, actually, there is something you can do for me.

Rafael: Name it.

Dominic: You can go down to the D.A.'s office, and you can tell him what a two-faced liar you are.

Rafael: Anything you say.

Dominic: And don't come back until it's done.

Sierra: Why have you suddenly decided not to worry about your father?

Lucy: You and grandmother told me not to. You keep saying its classic Craig. And you know, the more I think about him leaving behind the cell phone and the broken watch right on Lily's doorstep, it does seem kind of obvious. He's setting up a bunch of clues. Stopped using his credit cards. It's like he's dropping breadcrumbs. He's hoping we'll worry sick about him and realize we can't live without him. Besides, they -- they haven't found proof that he's in any real danger.

Sierra: True.

Lucy: So until there is, I'm gonna concentrate on me and hang out with Rafael, putting some fun back into my life. Who knows, maybe even figuring out my future?

Sierra: I would love to see that. Do you think that you can pull it off? You have never been able to ignore a distress call from your father.

Lucy: I've had enough heartache for one year, mom. And Daddy's been the cause of most of it. I'm just a lot less forgiving now.

Sierra: So you're willing to leave the search to the detectives.

Lucy: I'm willing to let Daddy be somebody else's problem for a change. I mean, isn't that what you keep trying to tell me?

[Monks chanting]

Craig: Why are you showing me Cabotís picture?

Brother Francis: Because I want to know how you feel about him. And Rosanna. And Lucy.

Craig: Lullaby.

Brother Francis: You love her?

Craig: I love her more than my own life.

Brother Francis: It's a shame you put so little value on your own life.

Craig: No one's perfect.

Brother Francis: You've proven it to your loved ones time and time again. Everything bad your daughter has learned about the world, she's learned from you.

Craig: That's not true.

Brother Francis: She's learned that promises are made to be broken, that dreams don't come true, that love leads to disappointment.

Craig: She knows that I've made mistakes. But she loves me.

Brother Francis: She wants nothing more to do with you.

Craig: She's my child.

Brother Francis: You had another. You're not forgetting -- your firstborn.

Craig: Bryant --

Brother Francis: Once, you had three children. Now, it would seem you have none.

Rosanna: Carly, hi!

Carly: Hi.

Rosanna: Hi, sweetie. So sorry to keep you waiting.

Carly: That's all right. I'm glad you're here.

Rosanna: That's okay. So, what have I missed?

Carly: Oh, I'm sorry. This is my sister, Rosanna Cabot-Ryan, now. This is Julia Larrabee.

Rosanna: Oh, hi. Well, so nice to finally meet you.

Julia: This is my son, J.J.

Rosanna: Hi, J.J.

J.J.: Hi.

Julia: Um -- well, we should probably go. So much to do, so little time. Nice meeting you.

Rosanna: Right. Bye.

Carly: Have fun.

Rosanna: Well, Parker -- this is for you.

Parker: Thanks.

Rosanna: You're welcome. So that was Julia Larrabee. She seems very nice.

Carly: And that little boy seems very nice, too.

Parker: I hate them.

Carly: Hey!

Parker: I hate 'em both.

Carly: Parker Joe! We don't talk about people like that. You might dislike them, you might be frustrated with them, but we do not hate anybody. Do you understand me?

Rosanna: Can I hate 'em, too?

Nancy: Carly? Do you mind if I borrow you for a minute?

Carly: Uh -- no, no, not at all. That is if Rosanna, if you can watch your favorite nephew?

Rosanna: I was just waiting for you to ask.

Carly: You can make some wrapping paper or ornaments or --

Rosanna: Come on --

Parker: Race ya!

Carly: So what can I do for you?

Nancy: Um -- we need someone to stand in Santaís workshop and hand out the toys when the children get off his lap. I hate to ask you, but --

Carly: Oh, you want me to be an elf?

Nancy: Please.

Carly: I'll do it. I was hoping you'd say that.

Girl: -- And a computer and a baby brother and --

Jack: And? There's another and? That's a pretty long list already.

Girl: I think that's all.

Nancy: And there are the toys right behind you.

Jack: I'll see what I can do. Merry Christmas, Ashley.

Carly: Now, here you go.

Girl: Thank you.

Carly: Merry Christmas.

Girl: Thank you.

Jack: Oh, come here, little boy. Who do we have here? What's your name?

J.J.: It's J.J.

Jack: J.J. Let's see -- I know you've been a good boy this year.

J.J.: How do you know?

Jack: Because I see you when you're sleeping, I know when you're awake.

J.J.: Then you know what I want for Christmas. I want Jack. He's my dad. I want him to come home and stay forever.

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

Rafael: Good news! We gotta get to the airport!

Jack: I love you. I love our kids. I don't know how to make it better. I don't know how to fix things so no one gets hurt.

J.J.: When Jack lived with us, every day was like Christmas. He loved us. And we loved him. So I don't want any toys or anything. Just Jack, okay?

Jack: J.J. --

J.J.: You can make it happen, can't you, Santa? Merry Christmas.

Jack: Merry Christmas, J.J.

Nancy: Is everything all right?

Carly: I don't know. Do you think you could tell everybody that Santa took a break?

Nancy: Of course.

Carly: Jack. Jack --

Jack: I love you. I love you so much.

Carly: I love you.

Jack: But Julia and J.J. --

Carly: I know --

Jack: No. I don't -- I don't know. I don't know what to do. I don't know -- I don't know how to make it better. I don't know how to fix things so no one gets hurt. It's all I think about!

Carly: No -- no one expects for you to be everything to everyone.

Jack: It's what I do, Carly. This is what I do! If something's wrong, I fix it. I make it safe. I protect. I'm supposed to protect you! How am I supposed to protect you, Carly? I'm supposed to make sure that everybody can sleep at night.

Carly: Who's gonna protect you, Jack? Who is gonna make sure that you can sleep? I thought getting your memory back would make things so much easier for you. I think that you would know exactly what you want. You're going through hell.

Jack: That's because I keep hurting all of you. I love you. I love our kids. I love the life we've built together. But how am I supposed to turn my back on Julia and J.J.? They depend on me. They trusted me. I made promises, Carly. How am I supposed to walk away from that? That's not who I am. I don't -- I don't know who I am anymore.

Julia: Jack?

Jack: Are you alone?

Julia: Yeah. He's with the reindeer. Hi, Carly. I'm sorry, Jack, about what happened. By the time I realized that you were Santa, J.J. was already --

Jack: I was a last-minute replacement.

Julia: Well, I hope you don't think I put him up to it or anything. What did he ask for?

Jack: We'll talk about it later. It's okay.

Carly: He's just a little boy speaking from his heart.

Will: Did Rosanna say anything about what happened the other day?

Paul: Yeah, when you were moving Cabotís toys. She did, and she feels really bad about what happened, Will.

Will: I know.

Paul: The last thing she wants is for you to be uncomfortable in your own home.

Will: I get the feeling she's the one that's not happy there.

Paul: It's Christmas. And, Will, everything is reminding her of Cabot. Everything is reminding her of what she's lost.

Will: Well, maybe we can help.

Paul: How can we help?

Will: Give her a Christmas she can actually enjoy, instead of one that she has to get through.

Paul: Well, that sounds great. Any suggestions?

Will: Yeah, you could say that.

Dominic: Here he is, Hollywood. You deserve one of those little gold statues.

Bud: Hey. Well, you think Rafael bought it?

Dominic: Oh, yeah. He was listening. He was on the other extension, just like I knew he would. He's probably on his way to promise Lucy he's gonna help find her father.

Bud: So where do we go from here?

Dominic: We get rid of 'em. Rafael and the girl both.

Sierra: Your father can take care of himself. And if by some fluke, he does get in trouble, the police will handle it. And that leaves you free to concentrate on other things -- like perhaps your education.

Lucy: I already missed the cutoff for the spring semester at Williams.

Sierra: I know. But there is plenty of time to try other options --

Rafael: Lucy! Good news! We gotta get to the airport.

Sierra: Airport? You going somewhere?

Lucy: We decided to -- go to aspen. And go skiing.

Sierra: Well, that's awfully sudden, isn't it?

Lucy: Not really. No, I just hadn't really gotten around to telling you.

Sierra: Well, I didn't know that you ski, Rafael.

Rafael: Yeah. Lucy's gonna teach me. We'd better get going, too.

Sierra: Well, have you even packed?

Lucy: We threw a couple things in the car. But whatever we forget, we can just buy or rent once we land.

Sierra: Well, you know what? I'm glad you're gonna go. Go and have a good time. I don't want you to worry one second about your father. Just leave it all to Margo.

Lucy: I'll call you soon.

Sierra: I love you.

Lucy: You too.

Rafael: Bye.

Sierra: Be careful. And don't try and keep up with her, really. Take a few days and learn the ropes, you know.

Rafael: We'll be careful. Don't worry.

Sierra: Well, have a good trip.

Rafael: Okay, that was close.

Lucy: All right, what did Dominic say?

Rafael: Okay. They're flying to wherever he's holding your father. And they're leaving tonight. So --

Lucy: Where?

Rafael: I don't know. He said something about fueling up the jet and filing a flight plan. So I think if we get to the jet before they leave, then --

Lucy: We could get that as proof and give it Margo and find my father. Come on. We don't have much time.

Craig: My son was my life.

Brother Francis: For a while. A very little while.

Craig: No, no. No, that's not true.

Brother Francis: He grew up. You grew away.

Craig: We had differences. What family doesn't have differences?

Brother Francis: And when he needed you most, you failed him.

Craig: What do you know about me? What do you know? You don't know anything about me! What do you -- you don't even know about what it is to be a father!

Brother Francis: Perhaps. But I can imagine. What I cannot fathom is how a man is given a life, a family, beautiful children who adore him -- and he throws those gifts away.

Craig: I didn't throw them away!

Brother Francis: They've given you their love, their trust, their faith, they depended upon you. And you let them down time after time. You failed to protect them. You failed to provide the love and the loyalty one expects from a father. And a husband. How many times did you betray Bryantís mother? You loved her once, didn't you?

Craig: Yes. Yes, I loved her. In some ways, I still do.

Brother Francis: So much so that even after she survived your rejection and found someone to share her life with, you couldn't let it last.

Craig: What does that mean?

Brother Francis: You created the circumstances that led to her husband's death.

Craig: Oh, no, no -- no, no. No, no, no, no. See, I had nothing to do with that. Look, I even liked the guy. We got along, all right. Who's feeding you this? Dusty Donovan? Is he behind this?

Brother Francis: You've only yourself to blame, Craig.

Craig: Hey! Francis, look at me! Look at me! I didn't shoot him! I didn't kill him, Francis! I had nothing to do with Alan Drake's death!

Julia: Are you busy? Do you have something else you have to do?

Jack: No, no. It just so happens, I'm starving. I could eat an entire reindeer, antlers and all. Uh -- there's something I have to take care of first. Okay?

J.J.: Okay.

Julia: Okay. We'll meet you by the car.

Jack: I gotta run.

Carly: I know.

Jack: Yeah. Thanks for listening.

Carly: Anytime.

Jack: I wish I could snap my fingers and -- in time, things'll get better. They have to, right?

Carly: Yeah.

Jack: I just wish I could promise when, or how.

Carly: You can promise something. Take care of yourself. I mean it, I'm really worried about you.

Parker: Jack! Where'd you go?

Jack: I had an emergency that needed my immediate attention.

Parker: Police business?

Jack: Well, a man in uniform's job is never done. We still on for tomorrow?

Parker: Promise?

Jack: I promise. Tomorrow.

Nancy: Carly?

Carly: Yes.

Nancy: Some of the kids are stopping by to help bake gingerbread cookies for their patients at Memorial. I was wondering if Parker would like to join them.

Parker: Can I, Mom?

Carly: Yeah. Okay. You have the number, so you call me when you're ready to come home, okay? Be good, and mind your manners. Don't burn anything.

[Nancy laughs]

Parker: Bye, Mom!

Carly: Be good. I love you.

Rosanna: Bye. Something happened while I was gone, did it not?

Carly: Oh, he needs his gloves. I'll be right back. Can you wait?

Rosanna: Yeah.

Carly: Just a minute.

Rosanna: I'll be right here.

Carly: Parker!

Will: Well, if Fairwinds brings back too many sad memories, let's give the place a makeover?

Paul: And turn it into what?

Will: A winter wonderland, like lights, ornaments, carols -- you know, the whole thing. Serious lights -- and we'll -- she'll love it.

Paul: I don't see why not.

Will: I know nothing's gonna make her get over Cabotís death. Nothing can. But if we can replace enough sad memories that with ones that make her smile?

Paul: That's a great idea, bro. Come on. Let's get out of here. We've got some decorating to do.

[Baby coos]

Carly: Hey. What is this? Everything all right?

Rosanna: Yeah, yeah. I'm just thinking about all this Christmas shopping I have to do. I'm a little overwhelmed. Do you mind if we take a break? Go somewhere and get a cup of coffee or something?

Carly: How about something a little bit stronger?

Rosanna: Why? What's wrong with you?

Carly: Jack. I can't just sit back and wait for things to work out. I have to do something.

Rafael: What do you think your mother's gonna say when she finds out we didn't go to Aspen?

Lucy: Once she finds out I only said that because we're gonna save my father's life, she won't care a bit. Are you sure this is the right place?

Rafael: This is it. All right, I'm gonna go see if I can find a flight plan or something.

Lucy: Well, just make it fast. We don't want Dominic to show up. What do I do if he does?

Rafael: Stall him.

Lucy: All right. Be careful. You got it already?

Rafael: Yeah. I took out everything out of the cockpit that I could find. The flight plan has got to be in here somewhere.

Lucy: I hope so.

Rafael: All right, well, we find the destination, we find your father.

Lucy: I wish I knew what we were looking at. I don't know what any of this means.

Dominic: I'll tell you what it means.

[Monks chanting]

[Craig sobbing]

Julia: He hasn't smiled once since he sat on Santaís lap. Did he figure out that it was you?

Jack: No, I don't think so. I don't think -- no, just -- kids J.J.'s age, they believe what you tell 'em. And that's part of the problem.

Julia: What did he ask you for, Jack?

Jack: Just -- just one thing. He wants me to come home.

Julia: Now I know that you think that I put him up to it, but I swear --

Jack: Julia, he's just asking for something already I promised him, that I would never, that I'd always be his dad.

Julia: Jack, J.J. adores you. When you came into his life, everything changed. You even made him feel safe.

Jack: Now he doesn't anymore, hmm? That's my fault.

Julia: This choice that you have to make -- I can't even imagine what it's like. No matter what you do, somebody's gonna lose. But, Jack -- look at me. I can not put my kid to bed one more night with tears in his eyes.

Jack: I know.

Julia: I can not keep promising him that everything is gonna be okay, because I don't know if everything is gonna be okay.

Jack I know. I just need -- I need a little more time.

Julia: No -- you know what, Jack? No. Let's not prolong this any more than we have to. You gotta make a choice. Is it gonna be her, or is it gonna be me?

Carly: If you had seen the look in Jack's eyes when J.J. asked for that Christmas miracle.

Rosanna: I'm sure that it broke your heart, but Parker needs his Christmas too, and so does Sage. I think Jack should be with the three of you.

Carly: At what cost?

Rosanna: I certainly hope you're not worrying about Julia?

Carly: No, I'm worried about Jack. Having to make this decision is killing him. Did you see him today? He looks haunted. So pale. Obviously he hasn't slept in days. What we're doing to him is tearing him apart. And I can't do it -- I can't do it to him anymore. I wonít. I love him way too much.

Rosanna: What are you doing? What are you doing?

Carly: Jack can't do this on his own. He needs my help. I will do it for him.

Rosanna: Wait, wait, wait, wait, those are your divorce papers. You can't sign those.

Carly: I have to. I have to give him his freedom. His life. It's the only way.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Dominic: Sit down! Buckle up, it's gonna be a bumpy ride, tough guy!

Carly: There's nothing I can do to save my marriage. The only person who can do that is Jack.

Jack: You need answers and so do I. That's why I'm making my choice -- right here, right now.
