Will: Hey. How's it going?

Alison: Great.

Will: Really?

Alison: Yeah, sure.

Will: 'Cause I know it's gotta be hard with Aaron being gone, so if you need anything, just ask me.

Alison: No, I've got everything under control. You should go hang out with your friends.

Will: My what? Who?

Alison: Well, I am sure that you have one or two. They're probably at Al's right now.

Will: Really, you're sure? You'd call if you needed anything, right?

Alison: Yeah. I would, of course, yes. Go. Oh, thank goodness you're here. I've been so scared. I don't know what to do. I tried calling Aaron three times, and he hasn't answered and that's not like him.

Holden: I know. He'll call you later.

Alison: You've heard from him?

Holden: Yeah.

Alison: Its bad news, isn't it?

Holden: I'm afraid so.


Luke: Mom.

Lily: Oh. Hi. Hi, hi, hi.

Luke: I got a message that you were in the emergency room.

Lily: Oh, I'm fine. I told you that.

Luke: Well, I know. But you don't always tell me the whole story.

Lily: Right. I'm just waiting here for Keith. That's all.

Luke: Why?

Lily: Oh, it's been a very, very long night. You know how Les was trying to get custody of J.J.?

Luke: Yeah.

Lily: Okay, well, J.J. was at Carly and Jack's, Les came and he took J.J. and Carly tried to stop Les, and he knocked her unconscious.

Luke: Oh, my God.

Lily: I know. But we followed him. We followed Les in his car. His tire blowout, he ran off the road, and he went to the old mill, and he stabbed Keith.

Luke: Well, is he okay?

Lily: He's gonna be fine. Just a couple of stitches. It could've been a lot worse, but there's -- there's big news about Les. They arrested him for Julia’s murder.

Luke: Wait. Hold on, wait, wait. So the police know for sure and they've got him?

Lily: Yes. You and I are cleared of all murder charges. It's over.


Dusty: What's so urgent?

Paul: I needed to talk to you tonight. I figured Craig’s going to come after you next.

Dusty: What's the matter? Where's Jennifer?

Paul: She's gone.

Dusty: Gone for the weekend?

Paul: No. Gone gone.

Dusty: As in forever? Packed up and gone?

Paul: Yes. And I, for one, am glad. She and Mike were only, like, three steps ahead of Craig. Craig just found out that -- well, he knows about the baby.

Dusty: Oh! That's super.

Paul: Yeah, and he would've made her life a living hell if she'd stayed in town.

Dusty: She left before he found out? Before she even knew there'd be a problem, she hit the hills?

Paul: Yew, thank God. She's pregnant with Craig’s baby. She had to know there'd be a problem eventually. At least, this way, she can raise that child and keep it away from Craig Montgomery.


Craig: We should be landing soon.

Katie: And we're going straight to a blackjack table. Craig, I'm not going to let you ruin Mike and Jennifer’s wedding. Even if there is even a wedding.

Craig: You can do what you like.

Katie: Oh, no. Oh, no. I am sticking like glue to you.

Craig: You're not gonna stop me for this, you know. In fact, it's thanks to you, I know she's five weeks pregnant, carrying my child.

Katie: Maybe, Craig.

Craig: Why else would she lie about her due date, okay? We all know what's going on here.

Katie: No, you do not know. And I'm gonna keep reminding you that you don't know.

Craig: Jennifer and Mike Kasnoff snuck out of town only to hide their due date from me. [Katie sighs] Okay?

Katie: What is that?

Craig: This is a list of wedding chapels in the greater Las Vegas area.

Katie: Oh, good. There's hundreds of them.

Craig: Uh-huh, I'll find 'em.

Katie: Craig.

Craig: I'll find them. And in your heart of hearts, you're hoping that I do.


Mrs. Lovejoy: Are you two ready to get married?

Mike: Absolutely.

Mrs. Lovejoy: Fabulous. Oh, wait. We forgot to choose the music. You get to choose your own signature theme music.

Jennifer: Do we have a signature theme song?

Mike: Let's just go with the standard. The usual is fine.

Jennifer: Yeah. Meat and potatoes kind of folks.

Mrs. Lovejoy: Okay, well, then, if you're ready, I'll just cue the music.

Mike: Let's go. Meat and potatoes?

Jennifer: I'm nervous, okay?

Mike: Okay. All right. It's your wedding day. You know? I'll meet you at the end of the track.

Jennifer: Hey, wait, wait, wait. Mike, are you sure you want to do this?

Mike: I'll race you to the altar. [Wedding march plays]


Luke: Where's Keith? I want to thank him.

Lily: He's probably sleeping. They gave him a very sedative so they can stitched him up.

Luke: And this les guy? He's in jail -- you're sure about that?

Lily: I'm sure.

Luke: What about the police? They could still charge us for something. I mean, we both lied.

Lily: I know that. What we did was absolutely wrong. It was obstruction of justice. There are going to be some consequences.

Luke: We could still go to jail.

Lily: But they know. They understand why we did what we did. I'm just hoping for suspended sentences. [Luke sighs] Oh, I know, I know, I know. It takes a while for all this to sink in, but it's over.

Luke: God. I really thought you would have to go to jail.

Lily: Me, too.

Luke: I was so scared.

Lily: I know, I was so scared. I was so scared. We just thought we were doing what was right. Protecting each other. You know, we really came very close to blowing it.

Luke: We would've been okay, Mom. Even though we were on our own, we still did okay.

Lily: We had a lot of help. We're very lucky. We can never forget that. We have --

Luke: Let's talk about the people we didn't have. Because he walked out on us.

Lily: You're talking about your father, obviously.

Luke: The one person who should've helped us the most was the one person who completely let us down.


Holden: Aaron is fine and he will call you later. He only had time to make one call today, so he called me because he had to give me the news.

Alison: So, what is it?

Holden: His mom. She's not getting any better.

Alison: Are they sure?

Holden: Yeah. They think that maybe she only has six months, a year.

Alison: Oh, no. His whole family must be freaking.

Holden: Yeah, they are. Especially Caleb. So, he's gonna need Aaron, and Aaron’s prepared to be there for him.

Alison: So what does that mean, exactly?

Holden: It means that he's not going to be coming home any time soon. He needs to help out with the family. He needs to see his mother for the time that she has left.

Alison: Yes, of course. Sure.

Holden: I need to head over to the hospital to see Lily. Are you going to be okay?

Alison: Me? Please, I'm fine. I just feel so bad for Aaron and his family. This is a nightmare.

Holden: Yeah, it is. But, they're gonna through it.

Alison: Thank you so much for stopping by. I was getting really worried there.

Holden: If you need anything, you call me, okay? Okay.

Alison: I guess I better get real good at managing this place -- alone.


Dusty: You're sister's gone. You might not see her again. And you're smiling.

Paul: I'm okay with this, all right? My sister got out. She's away from here, she's away from my family. She can have a real life. What's not to be okay with?

Dusty: Yeah. You're right. It's a beautiful thing. We should celebrate. Where's the champagne?

Paul: Oh, Dusty, come on.

Dusty: Worldwide is out millions for backing your sister's company!

Paul: Street Jeans is gonna be fine. Okay, we'll find a new designer. We'll back that designer the way we were gonna back my sister. And, who knows? Maybe once Jennifer’s settled down somewhere, she can smuggle us some designs.

Dusty: We're gonna pay a courier for her to ship her designs to us? Give me a break.

Paul: Okay, look, I know it's not ideal, but we can make this work.

Dusty: You have any idea how serious this is?

Paul: I know what really matter.

Dusty: Do you?

Paul: Jennifer needs to keep that baby away from Craig. Nothing else matters.


Craig: Elvis chapel? Too black velvet.

Katie: You know, Craig, if you cared about me at all, you would just stop all this and go home.

[Craig laughs]

Craig: The in and out chapel? Too burger joint.

Katie: I made one horrible mistake and it's like you're punishing me for it.

Craig: Excuse me?

Katie: I never meant to let you know what I knew, and now you're taking this one little mistake that I made and you're using it against me. Is that fair?

Craig: Bingo! Palace of happiness.

Katie: Why that one?

Craig: Well, first of all, come on. Second of all, Rosanna and Jordan got married there. Jennifer knows it. She's in a rush. She's not gonna be comparison shopping.

Katie: You're just guessing.

Craig: I make educated guesses.

Katie: Yeah, but you could be wrong. What then?

Craig: Yeah, what then?

Katie: What?

Craig: You're not fooling anybody.

Katie: Excuse me?

Craig: Come on, you want something to bust up this wedding.

Katie: That is so not true.

Craig: Umm-hmm.

Katie: If you bust up Mike and Jennifer’s wedding because of something that I said, I will never forgive myself.

Craig: No, no, no. More to the point, Mike will never forgive you. That's what got you all in a twist.

Katie: I can't believe this is happening. I never meant for this to happen. I thought you could be trusted, Craig.

Craig: What does that mean? Does that mean roll over and not take responsibility for my child? You've known I was coming after Jennifer and Mike. C'mon.

Katie: I thought you would at least be decent about it if this is your baby, Craig. If, if anything, it is a baby that's growing inside a woman who can't stand you.

Craig: Nothing new there. I'm used to that.

Katie: No, all you're used to is making a mews of things and screwing up people's lives. All right? That's all you know how to do. I can't believe this is happening.

Craig: All right. I believe you. But if I don't stop the wedding, you can't cry.

Katie: Oh! Would you get over it, Craig? I am a happily married woman, and I want Mike to be a happily married man, if that's what he and Jennifer want.

Craig: If? Finally, all right. Listen, I don't mind doing your dirty work --

Katie: Stop saying that!

Craig: But my only concern here is this child.

Flight attendant #2: Ladies and gentlemen, we will be landing shortly. Please check to see that your seatbelts are securely fastened.

[Craig sighs]

Craig: Almost there.


Mr. Lovejoy: We are gathered here today to join Jennifer Munson and Michael Kasnott in holy matrimony --

Mike: Kasnoff.

Mr. Lovejoy: Excuse me?

Mike: Kasnoff.

Mr. Lovejoy: Oh, sorry.

Mike: Right.

Mr. Lovejoy: Want to get things legal here, don't we? Michael Kasnoff and Jennifer Munson in holy matrimony. Marriage is a sacred bond, not to be entered into lightly, but reverently and deliberately. If any of you can show just cause why they may not be married, speak now or forever hold your peace. Now for the vows. Michael Kasnoff, do you promise to love honor and --

Mike: Would you mind if I said something personal here? My own vows?

Mrs. Lovejoy: Oh, yes.

Mr. Lovejoy: It's your marriage. We're good for another half hour.

Mike: Great. [Mike sighs] Jennifer Munson, you are so beautiful. And I know this isn't the time or place or the way that we would've done this under ordinary circumstances but, I couldn't love you any more than I do right now. And I couldn't mean these vows any more than I do. I promise you that we will share a lifetime of beautiful things. Including that miracle you've already created. I love everything about you. Everything that you bring with you. Because it's a part of you. And I can't wait to start our lives together. I love you. I will cherish and protect you. And celebrate every day that we have together.

Jennifer: My turn? Okay. Mike Kasnoff, you are more than I ever dreamed I could ever have. You are it. And I mean that little girl prince charming dream, right up through the grown-up version of it where you know that life can be random and cruel, and you know that you can be a mess, but you still want someone right there who will make everything all right. And, Mike, you make everything all right. You go so far beyond. And you are so much more generous and more loving and more fun than anyone has a right to expect. Especially me. Given everything that's happened in my life, everything that's gotten me here. I am so amazed and grateful to see you standing there. I don't deserve you. It's as simple as that. But I want to spend the rest of our lives making up for that. I will love you, and cherish and protect you. And I will celebrate our life together, but most of all, everyday, I will celebrate you.

Mr. Lovejoy: Do you have a ring? Rings are a symbol of your unbreakable bond and devotion. Take her hand, repeat after me. "With this ring I thee wed."

Mike: With this ring, -- Jen?

Jennifer: Oh, sorry. I'm sorry. I'm gonna to be sick.


Alison: Oh, thanks. There. Much better now.

Will: That's a lie.

Alison: No, really. I mean, I'm not -- I'm not great, but I'm okay.

Will: Alison, go ahead. It's okay. There's no one but me and you. You can cry, scream, throw something, whatever.

Alison: I just feel like such a weenie.

Will: You're the strongest person I know.

Alison: No, I don't feel so tough right now.

Will: That's 'cause you're not tough. That's why you can cry and stuff. But you're strong. And that's way better.

Alison: And how about selfish and scared? Do you like them, too? Holden was telling me all about Aaron’s family and all of the horrible things that they're going through, and all I could think was what about was me. When is Aaron coming home to me? Isn't that awful?

Will: No. It's normal. What are you scared of?

Alison: Guess.

Will: Well, forget about that. If Aaron were gone for ten years, it would just make him love you more.

Alison: Do you think?

Will: No, I know. And if he were here, he'd say the same thing. He'd look into your eyes and he'd tell you how much he loves you.

Alison: I need to hear that.

Will: You do. You should. Like, everyday.

Alison: You're right. I could look into Aaron’s eyes, and hear him say those words, I would feel much better. I'm gonna go to Seattle.

Will: Alison –


Paul: Craig thinks Jennifer’s in Mexico.

Dusty: Is she?

Paul: No. You found this thing that I planted for him to find is an itinerary for some other trip.

Dusty: Oh. I told Jennifer I would personally see to it that Craig stayed off her back.

Paul: Yeah, how were you going to do that? You couldn't even keep Lucy from Craig.

Dusty: Craig's her father.

Paul: Exactly, and that's what Jennifer had to look forward to. A lifetime of Craig doing horrible things to their child. If you ask me, I'm glad she took my advice, I think she got out just in time.

Dusty: Your advice is running away? That figures.

Paul: Oh, come on. What, are you going to make this about you and me?

Dusty: Nope. It's about business.

Paul: Business is business, Dusty. Companies come, companies go. So what? You really think that's what matters?

Dusty: It's the only reason you and me are back in the same room.

Paul: No, no, no, no. This is personal for you, too. You wanted a shot at Craig, that's why you took this gig.

Dusty: Oh, you think so?

Paul: No, I think all of a sudden, you fell in love with the fashion industry. Look, we can still do this, okay? We can still go head-to-head with Craig. I would love to see him out of business.

Dusty: With what? What are we going to use?

Paul: I don't know. We'll figure it out. The important thing is that Jennifer and her kid got away and they can have a life. And that's all that matters to me. She has to be able to get away from this family curse.

Dusty: Worldwide is hemorrhaging money because of your sister, but you don't give a damn. Because someone always cleans up after the Ryan kids. Not this time.


Katie: Whoa, whoa, whoa, where are you going? They haven't even opened the doors yet.

Craig: Don't even try, okay? I have a car waiting, I'll be at the Palace of Happiness in ten minutes tops.

Katie: Craig, please, is there anything I can say, anything I can do to make you leave mike and Jennifer alone? Please?

Craig: No.

Katie: Please?

Craig: It didn't have to be this way.

Katie: No, it didn’t.

Craig: If Mike and Jennifer had been honest with me --

Katie: You don't know if they were honest or not, Craig, because you still don't know the truth. Just remember that. And how's this? If you find Mike and Jennifer, just wait. Don't make a scene.

Craig: We're just going to have a nice, little chat at everyone's convenience.

Katie: And don't stop the wedding.

Craig: Oh, no, don't stop the wedding, don't stop Mike from committing himself to someone other than you.

Katie: Oh, you are so impossible.

Craig: So are you, okay? I love you, all right? You've got a nice act going here, but I know. Remember? I remember everything. I knew you when you wouldn't stop at anything to get what you wanted.

Katie: Yeah, well, I've changed. That was a long time ago.

Craig: Yeah, you're smarter. You're getting your big brother to do all the heavy lifting. It's all right, I don't mind. I don't mind. I probably owe you one, anyway. It's all right, you just show up, act surprised and help mike pick up the pieces.

Katie: That is not what I want.

Craig: Okay, well, then you can turn around and go home since Mike Kasnoff is no longer your concern.

Katie: Craig --

Craig: Hmm?

Katie: Craig, hold -- I am gonna call Mike and I'm going to tell them that you're coming.

Craig: No, you won’t.

Katie: Really? Watch me.


Mr. Lovejoy: Don't worry, a lot of brides feel faint. It's the nerves.

Mrs. Lovejoy: How far along is she?

Mike: Not very.

Jennifer: I'm so sorry, honey, I'll be all right in a minute.

Mike: It's no rush.

Mr. Lovejoy: Nobody's booked for another 20 minutes.

Mrs. Lovejoy: And I'm sure they won't mind waiting a bit if it comes to that.

Mike: You want to go back to the hotel and lie down?

Jennifer: No. No, it's okay.

Mike: Could you get us some water, maybe?

Mrs. Lovejoy: Oh, of course.

Mike: Baby, we don't have to do this today. All right, now that we're out of Oakdale, there's no pressure. Paul's the only one who knows we're here. We can take our time.

Jennifer: Could you tell me those vows again, exactly, word for word?

Mike: Probably not exactly.

Jennifer: Me neither, but that's the wedding that I want. Let's finish this.

Mrs. Lovejoy: Here, dear.

Jennifer: Oh, thank you. Okay, let's wind this up.

Mike: Are you sure?

Jennifer: I should be good for at least another hour.

[Cell phone rings]

Mike: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I forgot that I left it on.

Jennifer: No, wait, it could be Paul.

Mike: Oh, you're right. Hello? Hello? Who is it? Hello?

Jennifer: Who is it?

Mike: I don't know.

Jennifer: That's not good. What's going on?


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

Craig: Did you get to the part where you ask where anyone objects, because, padre, I'm ready to talk.

Holden: Hey!

Luke: Did you do this?

Lily: I called him when I called you.

Luke: Oh, my God, I'm out of here.


Mike: I can't hear anything. Hello?

Jennifer: Here. Hello, Paul? Can anybody hear me? Hello? Well, that's weird.

Mike: Nobody?

Jennifer: No, I couldn't hear anything either.

Mike: Caller I.D.'s blocked.

Mr. Lovejoy: Do you two want to continue?

Mike: Yes.

Mr. Lovejoy: I believe we were at the ring.

Mike: Yeah.

Mr. Lovejoy: Repeat after me. With this ring, I thee wed.

Mike: With this ring --

Craig: Hold it. [Craig chuckles] Did you get to the part where you ask where anyone objects, because, padre, I'm ready to talk.


Will: Ali, can you do that? Just pick up and leave the club with no manager?

Alison: Oh, Rafael is going to cover for me. There's one more flight left tonight.

Will: Well, have you talked to Aaron?

Alison: Oh, not yet, but he'll be fine with it, I'm sure. And I know he didn't want me at first, but that's because he thought he was only going to be gone for a couple weeks.

Will: So that's it. You're gone, just like that?

Alison: Oh, just for a few days. Oh, I've got to go. I have tons of stuff to do.

Will: Well, do you need any help?

Alison: Yeah, actually, I do. If you could just keep me sane while I pack and stuff?

Will: Keep you sane?

Alison: Well, you could try.

Will: Yeah, I'll get my car, I'll meet you at your place.

Alison: All right, thanks. Oh, Dusty, I was just going to call you.

Dusty: Is everything okay here?

Alison: Oh, yeah, it's great, but I have to go.

Dusty: Go where?

Alison: Out of town.

Dusty: What are you talking about, you're managing this place while Aaron’s gone.

Alison: Yeah, and you can count on me 100%, but only not for a few days. Rafael is going to cover for me, it's all set, okay?

Dusty: It's all set?

Alison: All right, thanks.

Dusty: Hey.

Alison: No, I'll see you soon. Bye.

Sierra: She disappeared in a hurry.

Dusty: Yeah. There's a lot of that going around.

Sierra: Really? Who else?

Dusty: Jennifer Munson. Our star designer got pregnant and she is gone.

Sierra: Jennifer's pregnant?

Dusty: Yep.

Sierra: I didn't know that she and Mike wanted to start a family. But don't be silly, she can still work while she's pregnant. I mean, I did with both my pregnancies, and Mike is a pretty great guy, but he'd be a lot more helpful than Craig ever was. What?

Dusty: Let's have a seat.

Sierra: Why?

Dusty: Come on, let's sit down. Not only is Jennifer not working, she left town. And she's never coming back.

Sierra: What?

Dusty: See, she and Mike didn't decide to do the family thing.

Sierra: But I thought you said Jennifer was pregnant?

Dusty: She is. Mike's not the father.

Sierra: What?

Dusty: It's Craig’s baby.


Lily: Okay. No caffeine. It's a little too late for that.

Luke: Don't worry, I'll get a lot sleep tonight, no matter what.

Lily: Yes, me, too. Not so sure about your father.

Luke: He should have trouble sleeping.

Lily: Don't you get tired of that?

Luke: What?

Lily: Doesn't it wear you out, being mad all the time?

Luke: Well, I don't get why you're not angry.

Lily: I just think you should cut your father a little slack.

Luke: Well, you cut him too much slack.

Lily: All right, you know, I just know. I mean, I cannot count the number of times and ways that I have given your father reason to doubt me. So many times. I've given him much more grief than he's ever given me.

Luke: So what, you keep score now?

Lily: No, I'm just remembering, that's all.

Luke: It's like you forgot what he did to you.

Lily: No, I don’t. I just remember more. And I think you're old enough to understand this now, but what your father did, walking out like that -- sometimes, people can be married, live under the same roof, sit across from each other and not really be there. That's kind of what I did to your father.

Holden: Hey!

Luke: Did you do this?

Lily: I called him when I called you.

Luke: Why?

Lily: Because I think he has the right to know what happened.

Luke: Oh, my God, I'm outta here.

Holden: Don't worry, I'm not going to force you to talk to me or anything, I just want you to know that I am very glad that you and your mom are off the hook of Julia’s murder.

Luke: So are we. Can I go now?

Holden: One more thing.

Luke: What?

Holden: Varsity baseball. The game tomorrow against midland? If any of you or your friends need a lift, I can take you.

Luke: Casey's parents already have it down.

Holden: Okay, but if something happens and you need a ride, you just let me know. It is okay if I go to the game, isn't it?

Luke: Yeah, sure, whatever.

Lily: It's a start.


Alison: Yes, I'm sure. It all fit when I moved in here. Just push the lump down. See?

Will: Yeah. You know, this is not a suitcase, it's more like a piñata. It's going to explode if somebody pokes it.

Alison: I won't pick any fights with the baggage guys. [Car horn blows] Oh, the cab's here.

Will: You know, I could just drive you if you want me to.

Alison: No, no, it's all settled. The car's here. Could you do me a favor and check my mail for me while I'm gone?

Will: Yeah, sure, of course.

Alison: Oh, it's stuck.

Will: There.

Alison: Thank you so much. Can you grab my bag?

Will: Yeah, got it.

Alison: Thank you so much, will, for everything.

Will: No problem. You just, you know, have fun.

Alison: Yeah, I will. Great, thanks. Bye.

Will: Hey, Ali, wait, my car keys. Ali?


Sierra: So Jennifer felt her only option was to run away and hide from Craig?

Dusty: Yeah.

Sierra: Man, I should have seen this coming. I should've left him locked up in that monastery, where he couldn't have hurt anybody else.

Dusty: Oh, I don't know, don't kid yourself, he's a talented guy, he would've found a way. Then how would you feel? You okay?

Sierra: What are our options in the company?

Dusty: Well, Paul tried to sell me on another designer or jen could still design, sending in her stuff Timbuktu.

Sierra: That is never going to work.

Dusty: Of course not. Look, worldwide has made good on its initial investment. Montgomery outsold us with those stolen designs, with Jennifer still in place. You understand? My advice? Call it a day.

Sierra: Pull out?

Dusty: Yeah. Street Jeans is, what? It's a shell now, filled with morons like Paul Ryan and his crazy mother. Yes, I say we cut them all loose.


Craig: The bride-to-be here is carrying my child.

Mike: No, she's not.

Craig: And these two model citizens tried to sneak out of town to prevent me from exercising my parental rights.

Jennifer: You are no parent any child could ever want. And how dare you come here?

Craig: Well, because it looks like I'm the daddy.

Mike: No, you're not the daddy and you will never be this child's dad --

Mr. Lovejoy: Settle down. Put a sock in it. All of you.

Mrs. Lovejoy: All right. I'm going to tell the next couple we need some time.

Mike: We're almost done.

Craig: The hell you are.

Jennifer: How did you even find us?

Craig: That's your big concern at the moment?

Mr. Lovejoy: Hold up. Did you know about this man?

Mike: Yes, we know all about him.

Mr. Lovejoy: Does he have a claim to the baby?

Mike: Absolutely none.

Craig: Oh, I've got plenty, padre.

Mike: We have no reason to believe --

Mr. Lovejoy: If he has a claim to the child --

Mike: Well, no, no. Okay, even if he were the father, does it matter?

Jennifer: Katie?

Mike: What are you doing here?

Katie: I came with Craig to try and slow him down. I tried to call you to let you know that he was on his way.

Jennifer: We didn't hear you.

Craig: Sure.

Katie: Please tell me he that he's too late? Can I congratulate the happy couple?

Mike: Give us two minutes and you sure can.

Craig: No, not so fast.

Jennifer: Craig, please, stop.

Mike: Look, let's do this, we're almost done.

Mr. Lovejoy: I don't know.

Craig: It should give you pause, what these two are trying to do.

Jennifer: No, this man is making wild accusations that he can't prove. They're based on nothing.

Craig: Based on your medical file. How's that for a stab in the dark?

Jennifer: How on earth did you get a hold of my medical file?

Craig: It doesn't matter.

Jennifer: I don't believe this.

Mr. Lovejoy: So this man is the father of your baby?

Mike: No, no, he thinks he might be, that's all. She does not want to be with him.

Jennifer: No, no, I don’t.

Mike: Look, we want to be married. Even if he were the father, so what?

Mr. Lovejoy: So what?

Mike: Yeah, so what? Is there law that prevents me from marrying Jennifer? No matter whose baby it is?

Mr. Lovejoy: No, I suppose not. As long as all parties are aware of the situation and consent to it.

Craig: I don't consent to the situation.

Mike: Great, I won't marry you then. Let's go ahead. All right, you can go home, you're wasting your time.

Craig: Okay, fine, you want her? Then you must have her.


Holden: What Luke did, he did it for you.

Lily: Well, maybe. But it's a start. I can tell you, he'll be happy you're at the game.

Holden: I don't know about that.

Lily: Oh, he won't tell you that, but if he makes a great play or the if there's a bad call, it's you he's going to be looking for in the stands.

Holden: Thanks for helping out with him.

Lily: I want you guys to be okay. When boys don't feel good about their dads, they don't feel good about themselves.

Holden: I'm doing everything I can to try and make things right.

Lily: I know. Did you tell Alison about Aaron?

Holden: Yeah, I did. She's pretty upset.

Lily: Yeah. When you talk to Aaron, just tell him that I'll call him tomorrow. When I called Caleb and talked to him, he was really a mess.

Holden: Yeah. Well, my mother, she's probably going to head out there and help out.

Lily: That's good. Then you can be at the farm, watch over the place.

Holden: Yeah. You need a lift or anything?

Lily: No, I think I'm going to wait here for Keith until he wakes up.

Holden: Okay. I'm going to go. –


[Knock on door]

Dusty: Any money that you put into Street Jeans now is a waste. Can I have whiskey?

Sierra: I just feel like I forced her into this job, you know? She didn't want to work with Craig. She knew that he would be trouble and she told me so, loud and clear. I insisted.

Dusty: You didn't force her to go to bed with him. They were working great together before all of this went down. Do you understand what I'm saying?

Sierra: I just feel like I owe her something.

Dusty: She's not even here.

Sierra: What if she comes back?

Dusty: I don't think so. She knows Craig knows if she comes back, she's going to spend her whole time fending him off. You know how that goes.

Sierra: Yes, I do.

Dusty: And even if she does come back, Worldwide cannot afford to stay in.

Sierra: I suppose you're right.

Dusty: The girl had no trouble leaving you high and dry. No phone call. What do you owe her?

Sierra: You seem pretty angry about this.

Dusty: I'm just sick and tired of people walking for no good reason, you know?

Sierra: Well, I think that fighting Craig to the death is a pretty good reason, don't you?

Dusty: Maybe.

Sierra: You know, you used to know that. What is up with you?

Dusty: Just once, you know, I wish it would be about what it's about. It's about business. You want my business advice? Get out now.

Sierra: You make sense.

Dusty: Of course, I'm the most sensible person in town. I might scare you, but there it is.

Sierra: It does scare me, actually.

Dusty: Does it?

Sierra: But all right. We let it go. Street Jeans is history.


Jennifer: Are you saying you'll leave Mike and me alone?

Craig: No, but you can get married.

Mike: That's not for you to say.

Craig: You two go ahead and get married, we'll watch. Hmm?

Katie: Oh, don't count me in on this.

Craig: Do you want to see this or not? You two go ahead, this is your 20 minutes.

Jennifer: And then all hell breaks loose?

Craig: If that is my child, I have a lot of rights.

Mike: But you can't prove that.

Craig: We can make this as ugly as you like, but if that is my baby you're carrying, you can't cut me out of his life. I will be there to help him grow, to help him live.

Mike: Like you helped your other children, huh? Tell me this, when did you become father of the year?

Craig: You ever been a father? You think you can do better than anyone?

Jennifer: He would.

Mike: Anybody can do better than what you've done.

Craig: You two -- you two better get used to me, and get happy, because I may be in your lives for a long, long time.

Jennifer: Oh, god.

Mike: No, no, no -- jen, don't let him get to you. It doesn't matter what he says, it doesn't matter what he does. Okay, I want to marry you, I will be that baby's daddy. All right, just -- all right, come on, nothing's changed.

Jennifer: Yes, it has. He knows.

Mike: I don't care. The important things haven't changed. I love you. Hey, I want to marry you. Come on, baby, let's do this. Let's do it right now. Let's get married right now.


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

Keith: It's time for me to get back to my life.

Lily: Meaning?

Keith: With J.J., back to Chicago.

Lucinda: What a capital idea.

Margo: Hey, where are you going?

Jennifer: We can run, but we can't hide.

Mike: We'll get married and we'll go back to Oakdale. And when that baby's born, my name will be on the birth certificate. And if he's still itching for a fight, he can bring it. –
