Dusty: To old friends.

Meg: With benefits.

Dusty: Certainly glad you called me before you took off to Alaska, you little rascal.

Meg: Well, I wanted to give you one last chance to redeem yourself.

Dusty: Redemption's hard to come by.

Meg: Well, I can be very forgiving.

Dusty: Uh-huh. What was my crime again?

Meg: You blew me off for Jennifer Munson.

Dusty: No, I didnít.

Meg: Yeah, you did.

Dusty: No, I didnít.

Meg: You left me alone in your bed to go take care of the beautiful redhead.

Dusty: Business. I took off because I had to deal with business.

Meg: Uh-huh. Yeah.

Dusty: And I feel terrible about it.

Meg: Yeah? Yeah, it's just eating away at you.

Dusty: It really is. And I'm here to make it up to you.

Meg: Really?

Dusty: Since tonight's your last night, I'm trying to, you know, send you off right.

Meg: Really? Well, that sounds kinda nice.

Dusty: "Kinda nice"?

Meg: Yeah.

Dusty: Is that your word of choice?

Meg: It depends. What did you have in mind?

Dusty: Five-star sendoff.

Meg: Wow. What if tonight really wasn't my last night in town, though?

Dusty: Yeah, I mean, you're leaving tomorrow, right?

Meg: Well, that's the plan. Unless I get a better offer.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Lily: Hi.

Keith: Good to see you.

Lily: I'm sorry I couldn't come by first thing today.

Keith: Its okay, you called.

Lily: I feel bad about standing you up.

Keith: It's all right. You were with your Mother and -- how was the doctor's appointment?

Lily: Brutal.

Keith: Yeah. Well, maybe you need to relax little bit. I made some iced tea. And there's an additive there to kick it up a notch.

Lily: Oh, oh, yes, yes. Ah, no -- I canít. I canít. I would love to, but I canít. I have to go check on the kids, and then I go back to my mom's to discuss her treatment options.

Keith: How bad is it? Lily?

Lily: I'm so scared.

------------------------------------------------------------

Sierra: Are you hungry at all? I can make you something to eat.

Lucinda: Uh, no darling. I'm not hungry.

Sierra: You heard the part about keeping your strength up, I hope. I mean -- I'm sorry. I was taking notes when Dr. Berg was talking.

Lucinda: That wasn't necessary, darling. I'm recording.

Sierra: No, it was necessary, because I won't be able to remember everything if I don't take notes. Do you want to wait till Lily gets here?

Lucinda: Why?

Sierra: Well, she's coming over so that we can discuss your treatment options.

Lucinda: Hmm, I don't think so. We have nothing to discuss.

Sierra: Well, it would probably help, don't you think?

Lucinda: I don't have many options, and they all stink.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will: You want to give up the baby?

Gwen: It'd be adopted, Will. It's not like I'm putting it on the curb.

Will: I know that.

Gwen: What?

Will: Well, it's just that, you never said anything about wanting to do that before.

Gwen: I thought about it. Look, it's what your uncle said from the beginning. Even you said that I couldn't take care of a baby where I am, on my own. So why is this such a big surprise to you?

Will: Gwen, don't do this because of what I said. I was just ticked at you. You're not really gonna do this because of what other people say, are you?

Gwen: No, I'm not.

Will: Well, then why are you doing it? I know why. It's because of my family. You'd rather see your baby get adopted than be with a family like mine.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Jennifer: No. No, you didn't -- you didn't come here to sleep with Katie. You came to Chicago to get away from everything.

Mike: I did. But I won't lie to you.

Jennifer: You -- you planned this, didn't you? You lured Mike in here somehow. You knew that we were having a fight, and you used it.

Mike: No, no, Jen. This is about what we did, not Katie -- you and me.

Jennifer: Of course this is about Katie. It's always about Katie!

Mike: Jen?

Jennifer: No, because -- because this isn't you, Mike. You don't walk out the door to think and end up in bed with someone. It hasn't even been a day.

Mike: Why don't you sit down?

Jennifer: No, no. No, oh.

Katie: Uh, let me get out of here. You two need some time.

Jennifer: Did you walk out the door and call her? How long did it take?

Mike: No, we didn't plan this, Jen. When I ran into her here, nobody was more surprised than I was.

Jennifer: I'm supposed to believe that?

Mike: I don't lie.

Jennifer: You married me. What was that?

Mike: I loved you, Jen. I still do.

Jennifer: Then why -- why are you here? Did I really drive you to this?

Mike: No, no. I would never try to make this your fault, because it's not. It's mine.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Keith: 'Course you're scared. But you know, it's your Mother. She's tough -- she's tougher than cancer, I think.

Lily: No, I don't know about that. You know, for the first time in my life, my Mother's lost and scared, and she won't admit it.

Keith: Well, you know what? She'll handle it the way she needs to.

Lily: I don't know. I don't know if she really was grasping everything the doctor was saying. She had this look in her eye of -- I gotta go. I have to go over there.

Keith: Look, I'll drive you.

Lily: No, you don't have to. It's okay.

Keith: I want to. I want to help. I want to be there for you, okay? Come back later if you can.

Lily: I'll try.

Keith: Okay, come on.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Meg: Relax, Dusty. Unless you come with a dental plan, you're in the clear.

Dusty: I see. By better offer, you mean job offer?

Meg: Of course.

Dusty: Well, you're doing that thing again.

Meg: What, messing with you?

Dusty: Is that what it is?

Meg: Just looking for the sparks.

Dusty: I think we got 'em.

Meg: You know, if you ever want to tell me, I would love to know how you got from that boy i knew to this man here.

Dusty: You're probably thinking it's an ugly road?

Meg: I never assume anything. Just know that I'll always be here for you. Okay, rack 'em up.

Dusty: What?

Meg: Come on. I need some traveling money.

Dusty: Oh, really?

Meg: So I thought I would whip you at a game of pool.

Dusty: How many points do you need to start?

[Meg laughs]

Meg: Yeah, right. I don't need any handouts.

Dusty: Okay. Well, I must say, you have gotten better.

Meg: You know I have.

[Dusty laughs]

Dusty: I know you have. So how much are you really trying to hustle me for tonight, big shot?

Meg: Well, it all depends on how soon I have to leave. I was thinking of spending some time with Holden and Momma. What?

Dusty: Meg, staying here --

Meg: Yeah?

Dusty: That's a bad idea.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will: The train wreck the other night at my brother's place made you want to take your baby and run in another direction, didn't it?

Gwen: Well, your family is special.

Will: And you do mean special.

Gwen: Look, Will, this decision has nothing to do with you or your family.

Will: Well then, if it's money, you know that --

Gwen: No, Will, stop it. It isn't yours to handle. It never was. Why did you get caught up in it in the first place? You wanted to keep Celia from finding out what a jerk Casey is? Done.

Will: It wasn't just because of that.

Gwen: What else is there? Oh. If the baby's gone, you don't get to play hero anymore.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Sierra: Well, every treatment has its pros and cons, but they all offer you a good chance of recovery.

Lucinda: Yeah, five years. Then it's even money.

Sierra: Well, Dr. Berg didn't say that.

Lucinda: Darling, the pathologist report said I'm third stage breast cancer. And I know perfectly well that that means the survival rate is about 50% after five years.

Sierra: Mother, we've talked about this before. I mean, look at how many times you've beaten the odds, and now, this is no time to change. So I think you just have one main decision to make.

Lucinda: Lumpectomy or mastectomy. Or second opinion.

Sierra: Right.

Lucinda: And then there's chemotherapy. Oh, that's grim. That's simple. There's no choice there.

Sierra: You know, if this bravado is for my benefit, you can really just forget it.

Lucinda: You don't need it, huh? I need it. It's not the surgery dear. I mean, that's easy. They take care of what they take care of. But it's the psychological ups and downs, the chemotherapy -- my, the fun of cancer. I've been, you know, reading survivor's histories. I mean, they're very interesting. If you're interested, I'll give them to you.

Sierra: I am. But listen to me. There is one place that I can really help. Once Dusty knows the situation, he needs to be told.

Lucinda: You've decided that?

Sierra: Well, he needs to be told something. And then the two us -- well, we -- we can both handle the Worldwide situation and you can take as much time and space as you need to heal.

Lucinda: Well, perhaps, my darling, I need to work to heal.

Sierra: Then that's what you do. Whatever you want.

Lucinda: Baby, you can't give me what I want. So I want to be alone -- just alone. Please, just leave me alone.

Lily: No way in hell, Mother.

Lucinda: What does that mean?

Lily: You are not alone, and we will not be bullied out of the process. What happens to you happens to us -- all of us.

Lucinda: Oh, well, honey, does that work both ways? Because let me tell you something. If it does, then I'm tired of us dating that nitwit pilot, and I'd like us to go home to our husband.

Lily: You want to take potshots at my private life? You think this is the time?

Lucinda: Well, honey, why the hell not? If mine is up for debate, why shouldn't yours be?

Sierra: It doesn't matter. This -- this isn't what it was about. We were just discussing Mother's treatment options.

Lucinda: No, we were not. That is my decision to make -- mine alone.

Sierra: Of course it is. What do you want to do?

Lucinda: I don't know yet.

Lily: Mother, you have to -- you're having surgery. You have to have some sort of plan.

Lucinda: Okay, if I have the lumpectomy, you know, and if they don't get it all, they might have to go back in again, maybe several times. If I do the mastectomy -- okay, that's one surgery. Okay, off with them! Take 'em off!

Lily: They'd get all the cancer if they did that. I'm just saying that it is an option, isn't it?

Lucinda: Honey -- Lily, is that what you would do if you were me? Would you go through the mastectomy? Wouldn't you worry about what your boyfriend was thinking when he looked at you?

Lily: Mother, we're not talking a boyfriend.

Lucinda: Oh, because it's not a consideration for me?

Lily: I want you to live. Nothing else matters.

Lucinda: It doesn't matter how I feel?! It doesn't matter if they're pieces of me?! I mean -- just get it all over with, then you won't have to worry.

Lily: I didn't say that.

Lucinda: I can hear you, baby. I've been listening to you for years. I have been your age, Lily, but you have never been mine.

Sierra: Mother, wait.

Lucinda: Please, darlings, please. Leave me alone.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Keith: Luke, what are you doing here?

----------------------------------------------------------------

Will: I wasn't playing hero -- that much. It's better than being crazy.

Gwen: No, you're not crazy. You never were.

Will: Don't be so sure.

Gwen: Will, you're the sanest guy --

Will: In my family.

Gwen: That I know.

Will: Well, you don't get out much.

Gwen: Not true. I'm the party slut, didn't you know that?

Will: Gwen, you don't have to do that.

Gwen: I already did. I met with the people that wanted to adopt the baby, told them I didn't know who the father was.

Will: There's people already?

Gwen: Yeah. They asked about the father. I told them I did a couple guys at a party, didn't know which one got me pregnant. I don't want them trying to figure out who the father is.

Will: Gwen, it's not right that people think that about you.

Gwen: It's easy.

Will: Doesn't make it right or true. Gwen, that's not who you are. So how'd you find these people?

Gwen: I -- I found an adoption lawyer. He hooked us up. I met them. Their house was like -- was like something out of a movie. The only thing missing was the moat around the property.

Will: And what were they like?

Gwen: They were okay -- more than okay. The guy was okay, the woman was -- she was something. She was kind. Not in a cheesy way, but just like she's seen a lot. She'd make a good mom. And if I can -- if I can do that, if I can give her the one thing that she wants in this world, shouldn't I do it?

Will: I don't know. So it's set then?

Gwen: No, not yet.

Will: Why?

Gwen: I'm supposed to think about it. They want me to be absolutely sure.

Will: That's good. Are you?

Gwen: I don't know. It's big.

Will: Yeah.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Mike: Jen, I'd -- I'd never lie to you. Everything I said, every promise I made, I meant it. I believed what I said.

Jennifer: But it wasn't true.

Mike: I wanted it to be true, because I did love you.

Jennifer: You never forgave me for sleeping with Craig.

Mike: No, no, I did. I wouldn't have stayed if I didnít. There was no point in doing it if I just going to punish you.

Jennifer: You were kinder than I deserved. But then there was the baby, and that punished you.

Mike: No, that's what made -- Jennifer, I've wanted a family for a very long time, and I've been really close. And I know this wasn't picture perfect, but I thought I could make it work.

Jennifer: And I just kept messing it up?

Mike: No. Maybe I kept lying to myself. I thought I could make it work. I just -- I finally reached a limit.

Jennifer: When? When, when I took Craig to court?

Mike: It's like we were going in two different directions. And whenever that happens, it's a pretty clear indication that whatever we had just wasn't enough.

Jennifer: So yesterday, you walk out. And today, you're in bed with Katie.

Mike: It wasn't revenge. I wasn't trying to pay you back.

Jennifer: You never stopped loving her, did you?

Mike: No. It changed, but it -- it never went away.

Jennifer: So where does that leave us?

Mike: Jen --

Jennifer: No, no. Please, Mike, we love each other. Please don't say it.

Mike: I wouldn't be here if you and I had a chance.

Jennifer: No, don't say that. Don't say that. We can work -- you just. Just come home.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Mike: All right, you don't look okay.

Jen: Really? I wonder why.

Mike: Look, Jen, just let me make sure you're okay. Maybe we can call the doctor or something.

Jen: No.

Will: Gwen, what is it? This used to be my favorite sweater. Oprah: A rare interview with

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Mike: Katie and I shouldn't have -- this was wrong.

Jennifer: That's okay, I can forgive, too. Let's just go home and --

Mike: No, no. I'm sorry. I meant that it was wrong that i let anything happen with Katie before I straightened out things with you.

Jennifer: Okay, I got it. I can be honest with you, Mike. I knew when you walked out, it was serious. But this -- Katie? I got to tell you, that was a big surprise.

[Jennifer sobbing]

Mike: Wait, you don't look well.

Jennifer: Really? I wonder why.

Mike: Look, Jen, let me make sure you're okay. Let me call the doctor or something.

Jennifer: No. I'm okay.

Mike: Jen, please, please don't -- no, no, no, no. Don't leave --

Jennifer: No, I'm fine.

Katie: Jen?

Jennifer: No, I have to --

Katie: No, wait, listen. I -- I know you probably don't want to hear this, but it needs to be said. Mike and I -- this truly was not planned.

Jennifer: Do you honestly think that makes it any less despicable?

Katie: Not now.

Jennifer: Not ever. I let this happen. I made it happen.

Katie: What? Whoa, wait, Jennifer, it looks like you can barely walk.

Jennifer: Let me go. I'll be fine when -- good-bye, Mike.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keith: So how'd you get in?

Luke: Uh, the door was open.

Keith: What's up?

Luke: Uh, I had to pick up some stuff that we stored up here.

Keith: Oh, yeah? Oh, you playing league this summer?

Luke: Yeah.

Keith: Oh. Let me know when, I'll come to a game.

Luke: My dad comes to the games.

Keith: Yeah. Hey, you a Cubs fan?

Luke: I guess.

Keith: 'Cause I got a friend that's got seats right behind the dugout. And he's always flying away, he gives me the tickets all the time, so I thought maybe we could go.

Luke: What's next? You gonna bribe me with money? Give up. Please.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meg: So you want to tell me why?

Dusty: Why what?

Meg: Why you think it's a bad idea for me to spend some time with Holden and my mama?

Dusty: Because you used to go nuts with your mama.

Meg: Well, we still love each other.

Dusty: The way they were with you, you were never happy.

Meg: Well, we've all grown up. Your shot.

Dusty: Believe me, you don't want to pass up a job opportunity to hang out at Emmaís. You'd be fighting within a week. Then what?

Meg: You know, you don't need to worry about me, Dusty.

Dusty: I'm trying to be your friend. I'm your friend.

Meg: And?

Dusty: A friend would tell a friend, get on with it. Get on with your life.

Meg: Well, who says I need to leave town to get on with my life?

Dusty: Maybe you donít. I'm just saying. You probably won't find what you're looking for here. [Cell phone rings] Hello?

Lucinda: Where are you at this very moment?

Meg: I'm at Yoís, playing pool.

Lucinda: Yo's? Oh, that's just wonderful. Rack up a cue for me!

Meg: Lucinda --

Lucinda: I'm on my way.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Gwen: I could still keep it.

Will: Yeah, you could, and I'd be there for you. I'd be there to help -- even though you threw me out and said you didn't want my help, which i know you didn't mean.

Gwen: Oh, you're so sure?

Will: Well, you just saw my family, and you were freaked out about what you were getting yourself into.

Gwen: That's not why I called the adoption lawyer. I did that 'cause I read the pamphlet that your uncle made me. I sat down, and I read every single word, and all of a sudden, it made perfect sense. This is the best solution for everybody.

Will: If you're sure. What?

Gwen: It's so huge.

Will: Yeah, like you said.

Gwen: You know, when I went to court to get rid of my parents, I didn't think twice about it, because I knew it was right for me. But this is different. And I remember, I thought to myself, I thought -- this is the most monumental thing that I'll do until I'm like 30, even if I go to college, or the band gets picked up, whatever. Because I'm my own person now. But these are -- these are other people. This is a baby that nobody knows. How could you be sure that it's the right thing?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Teen #1: Well, I checked, and it's an 18 and over show.

Teen #2: So no way we're getting in? Could this town be any more lame?

Luke: Doubtful.

Teen: #1: Well, what's left? We could cruise the food court at the mall.

Luke: You guys are so lucky I'm here.

Teen #2: Yeah? Why's that?

Luke: Because I brought the party with me.

Teen #1: Oh, oh.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katie: If being with me feels like a mistake now, I understand.

Mike: No, Katie, you are not a mistake for me.

Katie: Then why do I feel like crying?

Mike: Katie, hey --

Katie: Oh, before that knock on the door, I felt like I had finally come home. I mean, how many times did I dream that we would be together again? Then we were, it was like, happening for real. I could feel you breathing, and I could hear your heartbeat. But now, after this, how can this be happy?

Mike: All I know right now is that we belong together.

Katie: But you love Jennifer. Mike, you do. After court, when you told me to stay away from you, you were totally, completely with her. What happened?

Mike: What happened was my fault.

Katie: Well, Jennifer said it was her fault. Mike, please, what happened? I really need to know.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meg: Okay, ten, side pocket.

Dusty: So -- so that's okay. Two is fine. Why don't you take another free shot? Huh?

Meg: Oh, nice try. But you know what? If anybody that's been long enough remembers, I won the last game unassisted. So I don't need any favors or charity, thank you.

Dusty: Right.

Lucinda: Hey, guys, I'm looking for a -- ooh, hello! Nice to -- what are you doing? Oh. What's he doing here?

Dusty: Well, it's nice to see you, too.

Lucinda: Oh. I didn't know you were on a date.

Meg: I'm not. It's just Dusty.

Dusty: She makes me feel so special.

Meg: Yeah, it's the happiest he's been all night.

Dusty: 'Cause you're here, finally.

Lucinda: Oh, you're always such a charmer.

Dusty: What are you doing here, anyway?

Lucinda: Hey, I'm here to shoot some pool. Hey! Accept me, or I'll find somebody who will. Thank you. What are we doing here, eight ball?

Dusty: Hey, it's your party.

Lucinda: All right. My party, I'll break.

[Cell phone rings]

Dusty: Excuse me. Donovan.

Jennifer: Dusty, it's me. Um, about the meeting tomorrow, I'm not going to be able to make it. So just call me later.

Dusty: Hey, Jen, I can't even hear you. Hold on -- hold on one second, all right? Jenny?

Jennifer: Yeah?

Dusty: That's better. What's up?

Jennifer: The marketing meeting tomorrow, I can't make it.

Dusty: These people are coming in from L.A. just to see you.

Jennifer: I know. I know. I'm sorry. You'll just have to conference call me, and I'll make a little presentation. And just tell them --

[Jennifer sobbing]

Dusty: Honey, what's wrong?

Jennifer: Everything. I saw Mike.

Dusty: Where are you?

Jennifer: Driving back from Chicago. I just -- I just got off the highway at the last exit.

Dusty: It doesn't sound like you should be driving right now.

Jennifer: I couldn't stay there. Mike was --

[Jennifer sobbing]

Dusty: Mike was what?

Jennifer: I just -- I had to go.

Dusty: Listen to me. It doesn't sound like you should be driving right now, you hear me? So pull over, I'll pick you up wherever you are.

Jennifer: I'm going to go to my Mother's cabin. It's just a few miles from here.

Dusty: I'm losing you. Something about your Mother's cabin? Are you there?

Jennifer: Yeah, I'll be there in a few minutes.

Dusty: Okay, I'll be there. Where is the cabin? Jennifer? Damn it.

[Jennifer sobbing]

Dusty: Come on, Jenny, pick up the phone.

Jennifer: You've reached the voicemail of Jennifer Munson-Kasnoff. Leave a message, and I will call you back as soon as I can.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Meg: So since I know you can spring for the chauffeur's gas money, why are you really here?

Lucinda: I've got stage three, okay? Yeah.

Meg: Okay. Well, that's better than stage four. Much better.

Lucinda: Oh, yah, yippee. I thought stages had something to do, you know, with the theater.

Meg: Well, you'll be there again.

Lucinda: I'm never going to hear that word again the same way, am I?

Meg: No, you wonít. So why are you here? To play pool instead of telling your family?

Lucinda: Please, don't be sanctimonious. We were at the hospital together. Sierra's taking the copious notes. I'm secretly taping it. Lily's -- her eyes are glazing over. I love them! But they can't help me. They can't help me.

Meg: Lucinda -- Lucinda, you're mad at the cancer, not your daughters.

Lucinda: You're not hearing me. I'm not so sure about that. No.

Meg: Well, you know what? You need to save some of that anger for the treatment phase. It'll help.

Lucinda: Oh, you mean you don't want me to lie down and just roll over?

[Lucinda laughs]

Meg: No, hell, no. And neither would your daughters.

Lucinda: They just want the damn thing to go away.

Meg: Well, who wouldn't? Have you made a decision?

Lucinda: I'm leaning towards the lumpectomy. You know, a nice, honest lumpectomy. And it's going to be more testing and then maybe more surgery, but at least it's going to be incremental. It's going to take some time.

Meg: Well, you won't have much time to do anything else, so you can take your time.

Lucinda: Thank you. Why can't my daughters understand that?

[Lucinda laughs]

Meg: Well, they're probably as scared as you are.

Lucinda: But -- but you're not scared for me.

Meg: I've seen where you're going before, and I've seen people survive, Lily and Sierra hasnít.

Lucinda: Well, they just -- they just hover around. I can't get them to stop.

Meg: Well, that'll be hard.

Lucinda: Oh, I -- I can't make it right and okay for both them and me.

Meg: You don't have to. I can. I could stay in town, and you could hire me as your live-in nurse.

Lucinda: You want to stay in town and be my live-in nurse?

Meg: Yeah, why not? You were gonna hire one anyway, right?

Lucinda: Well, I -- I hadn't given any thought.

Meg: Well, think about it. I mean, your daughters would love to know that you have great care 24/7.

Lucinda: Would you be willing to do that?

Meg: Would you offer dental?

Lucinda: Hey, honey, I'll put my thought on the contract. Hey, are you doing this for me, or is it my daughters, or for the guy on the phone outside?

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keith: Sierra's right. I mean, your Mother will be back, and then you can make it up to her.

Lily: No, I cannot believe I was such an oaf.

Keith: You werenít. You're too cute to be an oaf. Have you got a problem with cute?

Lily: The two of us -- it just seems a little strange with everything going on right now.

Keith: Like you feel like you shouldn't be happy, huh?

Lily: No, I feel like my family needs me. It's -- this is a difficult time for everybody, especially Luke, 'cause he understands. Holden and I are doing double duty.

Keith: Holden?

Lily: That's the only father that Luke knows.

Keith: Right. Yeah, it's tough on the kids. Does Luke know that you're officially getting divorced yet?

Lily: Well, it isn't official. Technically -- I couldnít. I couldn't do that to everybody with everything that's going on. Once my Mother's treatments are over and everything's on an even keel, then. Trust me, this is what I want. It has nothing to do the two of us. I just need a little time.

Keith: I know, and you can have that time. I'm not going anywhere.

Lily: Good.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katie: I don't mean to pressure you, I'm just confused.

Mike: I know. I know. But this has to be handled right. I gotta do the best I can right now to minimize the damage. So there are just some things I can't talk about yet.

Katie: Okay. Well, just so you know, you're allowed to change your mind. If I'm not right, if this wasn't right --

Mike: No, no, it's not --

Katie: No, please, you're not obligated to me. Whatever happened here does not mean that we have to be --

Mike: But it does. Katie, please, please -- I know that this is a mess right now, but do not back away from me. I do not want to lose you again. Please.

Katie: So you still want me to come back to Oakdale with you?

Mike: Yes. Yes, more than ever.

[Katie sobbing]

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Will: You made decisions for you, and they felt right. So trust that when you make decisions for your baby, no matter which way you go, it'll be right, too.

Gwen: You think? Who am I kidding? I can barely take care of myself. I try to think of myself with a kid. I can't, whatever. That's that.

Will: Is it?

Gwen: Yeah. I hope -- I hope they name him Clark Kent, whatever.

Will: He was adopted, too.

Gwen: Exactly.

Will: Although, I think it would stink to be named "Clark" if you didn't have superhuman powers.

Gwen: He'll be tough. If it's a he. Either way, they'll be okay.

Will: Yeah. Gwen?

Gwen: It's okay. It's just sad, kinda.

Will: Yeah. And brave. Come on. I'll drive you home. Gwen, what is it?

Gwen: Will, something's wrong.

Carly: You say that you're on my side, but you act like you don't want me to know the truth about my father.

Jack: I don't want Carly to know what happened, and I need your help to keep her from finding out the truth.

Rosanna: I didn't marry Craig because I love him. I love you.

Jennifer: It's coming! Now!

Dusty: Okay. You gotta push! Just push!

Nurse: She's fully dilated.

Will: What does that mean?
