[Emily laughing]

Emily: Whoo! Okay. I quit, quit.

[In Russian accent]

Paul: No, no. No, this is no good, this quitting. You must dance.

Emily: Boris, I'm so sorry. No can tango.

Paul: Party poopski!

[Emily laughs]

Emily: Come on. Let's sit and talk.

Paul: Now, this is a first. You'd really rather talk than tango?

Emily: Oh. It's been a long day. A lot has happened.

Paul: Nothing a few drinks at Yo’s won't fix. C'mon, I'll race you to drunk.

Emily: Paul, Paul. Please, can we talk about it? You know, Craig and Rosanna adopted a baby.

Paul: Yeah. That's what I heard.

Emily: And it's gotta bother you.

Paul: Only if I stop to think about it. Hey, want to see me not think about anything?

Emily: Listen to me. Hey! We can't tango forever, okay?

Paul: Sure we can. C'mon. Come here. Boris must have a vodka!

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

[Craig remembering]

Judge Kwan: I hereby grant the plaintiff's request for a restraining order preventing any contact or communication with Mrs. Kasnoff or her offspring with the following amendment -- that this restraining order be in effect for a period of not less than five years from this date.

[Gavel pounds]

Rosanna: Craig?

Craig: Huh? Oh, I didn't hear you come in. What's all this?

Rosanna: Well, I thought that we should establish a trust fund for the baby, in a way to reassure Gwen. Not that money is all that matters, but this way she'll have some sort of proof that we're serious.

Craig: That's fine. Fine.

Rosanna: Okay. So what I was wondering was -- should we wait until its 25? Should we give it the money all at once? What provisions have you made for Lucy?

Craig: For Lucy?

Rosanna: Yes. Are you gonna give her the money all at once, or are you gonna do it in stages?

Craig: What?

Rosanna: I want to know what you think. How we should set things up for our baby. We're having a baby, Craig. I thought that's what you wanted.

Craig: I do.

Rosanna: Are you having second thoughts? You are, aren't you?

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

[Gwen groans]

Will: Should I call the hospital?

Gwen: No, no, that's the last thing I need, to be carried off the roof on a gurney.

Will: Well, Gwen, if you can't walk --

Gwen: Look, I don't know if it's labor. Maybe I pulled a muscle. Maybe it's the week-old burrito I had for breakfast.

Will: Gwen, if you're in this much pain, I really think we should get it checked out. Are you having another contraction? What is it?

Gwen: Uh-uh. I'm scared.

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

Sierra: Mother, is that you?

Lily: Oh, just me.

Sierra: I thought you had a date.

Lily: Last-minute schedule change. Keith had to fly. Where is Mother?

Sierra: You know, I don't know. I've called her office. I've called the massage therapist --

Lily: It's late. Where could Mother be?

Sierra: I have no idea.

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

Lucinda: Bartender! Bourbon!

Meg: As your nurse, I think I should point out --

Lucinda: Bourbon -- it's not on the regimen?

Meg: No, once you have your surgery and start treatment --

Lucinda: Oh, well, then I better party while I can. Bartender, make it a double!

Dusty: Hey, Lucinda?

Lucinda: Yeah?

Dusty: Do you know where Barbara Ryan’s cabin is?

Lucinda: Milltown Road. It's on the other side of the lake. What'd you want to go there for?

Dusty: I'll tell you later.

Dusty: Damn it, Jen, pick up.

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

[Jennifer breathing heavily]

Jennifer: Oh, so far, so good. [ Jennifer gasping ] No. No. Oh, it's too soon. Oh, God.

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

Gwen: I'm okay.

Will: Well, I still think we should call the hospital.

Gwen: I'm not going to the hospital. I hate those people. They're so nosy.

Will: Nosy?

Gwen: My mom used to work there.

Will: Yeah, Alison said something about how she --

Gwen: Show up on a gurney, it's too pathetic. "Oh, look what happened to poor, stupid Gwen. First she gets kicked out of the house. Now she's pregnant."

Will: Okay, well it doesn't have to be like that. We can call my Uncle Bob, and he'll meet us at the door. He'll walk us through. It won't be a problem.

Gwen: How about we just go to the movies? Will, lighten up.

Will: Gwen, I just don't want anything to happen to you.

Gwen: Why?

Will: 'Cause we're friends.

Gwen: Yeah. I guess we are.

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

Craig: Second thoughts?

Rosanna: About adopting this baby.

Craig: Why would you think that?

Rosanna: Why would I think that? Because I've come in here with all these papers that I've had drawn up, and you're out to lunch.

Craig: No, I said fine. You having second thoughts?

[Rosanna sighs]

Rosanna: No. You know that I want this child.

Craig: No, about me.

Rosanna: Not if you want this baby.

Craig: Rosanna, I want this baby. You know how I love babies. If it was up to me, we'd have a dozen babies.

Rosanna: All right, then what's going on? Because I know it's something.

Craig: In a couple of months, I will have a child. A son out there that I won't be able to know or hold or even see. And there's nothing I can do about it. But I can't just turn off my feelings. Otherwise, I wouldn't be much of a father. Okay? So there.

Rosanna: Okay. I understand that you're upset. I do. But I also know how you get when you're upset. So you have to promise me that you're not going to do anything devious or underhanded, okay? Because I cannot lose another child.

Craig: I don't want to lose a child.

Rosanna: All right, so we're going through with this adoption?

Craig: Yes. Yes, and have I said thank you? Okay? How grateful I am for this? How much it means to me, okay? All right.

Rosanna: I know it's hard for you. I know. It's very difficult to let go. But maybe if you just let yourself focus a little bit on this new baby, you know? We're going to be parents very soon.

Craig: Yes, yes, and that's very exciting. And whatever help you need, I got.

Rosanna: Okay. All right, maybe I'm jumping the gun a little bit with all of these papers and stuff. You know, I'm just going to not think about it for a little while. I've gotta go meet Carly for lunch and whatever. I'll see you later.

Craig: All right. Say hi to your sister.

Rosanna: Okay.

Craig: I'll be fine.

Rosanna: All right.

Margo: Craig? I saw Rosanna on the way out. She said you had good news?

Craig: You talked to Tom yet?

[Margo sighs]

Margo: I told you, I couldn't do anything about that. You can't reverse a judge's ruling.

Craig: Well, maybe the judge would set aside her ruling if the district attorney had done anything besides just accept a hysterical princess's rants about just not wanting me to see my own child!

Margo: Craig, please! It's not my fault. Look, I came here because I hated the way we left things, and I'm not going to leave here until we sort it all out.

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

Lucinda: For a girl who's on her way to Alaska, you're awfully coy.

Meg: It's a bank shot.

Lucinda: I'm not talking about the table. You think I don't know why you're staying on here in town?

Meg: You need a nurse.

Lucinda: Oh. I can get nurses. I can get many, many nurses, all sizes and shapes. You're staying here because of him, Dusty. [Lucinda laughs] I'm right. You think that maybe, if you linger -- hmm, okay. If you linger long enough, he'll decide that you're his "it" girl.

Meg: Oh. Now who's off the mark?

Lucinda: Well, that depends upon how you look at it. It really does. You know, I think the more important question for you, darling, is -- to ask yourself -- is whether he's the "it" guy, the boyfriend for you. Far be it from me to force vital information down your throat.

Meg: What's so vital?

Lucinda: Okay. I like Dusty very much. I'm very found of him. And he's done very good work for me at Worldwide. At the same time, he hasn't been back in town very long. And in the years that he was away, the proverbial snow, as they say, has drifted. You know, he's had some problems. To cut it short, he's not the sweet boy that you remember him being.

Meg: Who is?

[Lucinda chuckles]

Lucinda: That's very true. On the other hand, be aware. He's dangerous, in more ways than one. [Cell phone rings] Oh. Oh, my heavens. My daughters -- they're very persistent, I have to give them that.

Bartender: Ms. Walsh?

Lucinda: Ooh, thank you, darling.

Meg: Thank you. You know, maybe we should call it a night.

Lucinda: No. Not a bit, no. Here's to life and living, and living dangerously.

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

Jennifer: No service. Great. Great. Okay, okay. You're early. But this is the first baby. It usually takes forever, so you're going to be fine. You're gonna be fine. Okay. Car keys, purse. Oh!

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

[Lucinda laughing]

Lucinda: Well, hello. What is this? Is this welcoming committee?

Sierra: Where have you been?

Lucinda: Um, shall I tell them where I've been? Sure. She says I can tell you where I've been. I've been to Yo’s. Yo’s. I've been shooting pool.

Lily: And drinking, apparently.

Lucinda: Absolutely, baby. Absolutely. I've got on the best medical authority from Florence Nightingale over here. There is no harm in indulging a little bit before surgery.

Sierra: What surgery?

Lucinda: Well, I'm gonna go for the lumpectomy.

Lily: Since when?

Sierra: I thought you said you needed time to think about that.

Lucinda: Oh, you know, there's no dealing with these girls. This is -- it's just amazing. I thought earlier you were just telling me that I should make up my mind. Oh, and I'm informing you -- I'm informing you formally I've hired her. She's my nurse. Okay?

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

Margo: Craig, I hated that judge's ruling, too, but I did sign that paper in your defense, and I have been on your side from the very beginning, almost. So don't blame this on me.

Craig: I was just hoping it wasn't hopeless. You want something?

Margo: What, to drink?

Craig: Yeah.

Margo: No, no, I don't want anything to drink. It's not hopeless. You can appeal. I mean, you'll see him, eventually.

Craig: When he's 5? "Happy birthday. I'm your father. And that guy with the tool belt you call 'Dad' is an impostor."

Margo: Yeah, but he's just 5. I mean, he's so young. He's just gonna be barely reading. And, you know, he'll maybe know a few songs. He's just at the beginning, Craig. You've got so much to teach him. You can teach him to ride a bike and you can teach him to go skiing or to go fishing. You'll have so many opportunities.

Craig: You're his aunt. You'll keep an eye on him?

Margo: Of course I will. And Katie and me, we'll bring you pictures and videotapes and tape recordings of his voice, and I'll do everything I can to soften Jen's heart.

Craig: Yeah, well, good luck.

Margo: I know, I know, baby, it's hard. Well, what's the good news, huh?

Craig: Hmm?

Margo: The good news. What?

Craig: Oh, well, Rosanna and I have -- well, we've decided we need a new start.

Margo: That's great. That's great. A honeymoon, huh?

Craig: No. A new baby. We're going to adopt.

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

Paul: There are none so blind as those who have too many drinks with too many tiny, mini, itsy-bitsy umbrellas.

Emily: Hello. What are you doing? Who are you entertaining? It's just me.

Paul: I need to be entertained. Entertain me. I need a vacation. We should go somewhere where they have coconuts. You know, coconuts, they don't just grow on trees.

Emily: A vacation? I could be convinced.

Paul: Okay, let's go. C'mon.

Emily: Whoa, whoa. Right now? There's no travel agent open this late, I assure you.

Paul: A travel agent? We'll go to the airport. We'll hop on the next plane that's going somewhere warm. You don't need anything, right? No, you do. You need a toothbrush -- ooh, and a bikini. Which is good, 'cause they've got all those overpriced gift shops.

Emily: Seriously, now?

Paul: Yeah. We'll have breakfast at the beach. We'll have lunch at the lagoon --we'll have dinner at the --

Emily: Paul.

Paul: We'll skip dinner, we'll skip dinner, if you know what I mean.

Emily: Paul.

Paul: What? Paul -- you said Paul. But it sounded kinda like no. So I'm gonna give you three seconds to reconsider. Okay, two. One.

Emily: I will go anywhere with you.

Paul: Great.

Emily: As long as we're not running away.

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

Carly: Uh oh. You only drink tea when something's wrong.

Rosanna: No, nothing's wrong.

Carly: Well, then, why meet here? Why not come to the house?

Rosanna: Well, I just thought you might enjoy a night out. [Rosanna sighs] And I thought we could use a little privacy.

Carly: And whatever it is, you don't want to tell me.

Rosanna: No, I do want to tell you. I just want you to hear me out.

Carly: Tea it is.

Rosanna: Okay, look, what I want you to understand is, first, that I miss Cabot so much.

Carly: I know you do. And I know that you miss Paul.

Rosanna: Paul has made choices that don't include me. But Cabot -- Cabot made me a Mother. And now I don't have anything to do with my life. I've -- I keep getting these catalogs in the mail with pictures of happy babies playing chess.

Carly: Well, Sage is still chewing on her feet, if that's any consolation.

Rosanna: That child has saved my sanity. And J.J. and Parker. But I need a child of my own. And so does Craig. So we have decided to adopt. Look, I know that you think that this is crazy and that it's crazy to trust Craig, but I am handling this adoption completely on my own. I've found my own lawyers, we've found a birth Mother, we've met with her, she's agreed, and so it's done. Okay, I know you have an opinion about this.

Carly: Rosanna, I'm all for you having a child.

Rosanna: Thank you. I really expected you to be negative.

Carly: Not about you having children in your life. The problem is you have Craig in your life. And as long as that man is around, no child is safe.

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

Will: What?

Gwen: Nothing. Just when we were in your car the first time, and I kissed you and you almost pushed me through the windshield.

Will: I didn't push you through the windshield.

Gwen: You were so not into me.

Will: That's not true.

Gwen: Now who's lying?

Will: Well, it wasn't about you.

Gwen: It's just as well.

Will: Why?

Gwen: Well, I was pregnant then. I didn't know it, can you imagine if we would've hooked up?

Will: We weren't going to, at least not right away.

Gwen: No, probably not. You're not that kinda guy, you know. You have to like somebody first.

Will: What, and you don't?

Gwen: I thought I liked him -- Casey. I don't know, I guess I thought he liked me, too. I was wrong. I don't like him. I think he's a pig.

Will: He can be piggish.

Gwen: Spoken like a true best friend.

Will: We're not best friends. We used to be. He still thinks we are, but we can't talk about anything. I told him the kid was mine and he can't question that.

Gwen: He doesn't want to question it. I know you did this for Celia, but I appreciate it.

Will: Maybe at first it was for Celia. But then, I guess it was for you.

Gwen: Yeah, that's one way to get even with a girl you didn't want to kiss.

Will: Okay, it was for the baby. Someone needed to make sure you stop smoking.

Gwen: Yeah, that worked. Anyways, as soon as I deliver, you're off the hook.

Will: Wait -- what do you mean?

Gwen: I give birth to the baby, I give it away,I go home. A girl without a problem.

Will: So you don't need a friend anymore?

Gwen: No. I'm just saying I'll survive if you've got better things to do.

Will: I don't know. This kinda works. I wouldn't mind keeping it up.

Gwen: Yeah?

Will: Yeah.

Gwen: Okay. Well then maybe some -- ah!

Will: What is it?

Gwen: Oh! I don't know. But it's worse. It's worse than before.

Will: All right, it's gonna be okay, Gwen. Hello? Yeah, it's an emergency. I need an ambulance.

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

Jennifer: Oh, that's great. [Car pulls up outside] Oh, thank God. I'm in here!

Dusty: Jen -- what happened?

Jennifer: How many pregnant ladies does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Dusty: You got electrocuted?

Jennifer: No, I fell.

Dusty: Are you all right?

Jennifer: What are you doing here?

Dusty: You didn't sound very good on the phone. Can you stand up?

Jennifer: I don't know. Oh, Dusty, my water broke.

Dusty: Your water broke?

Jennifer: Yeah, when I fell.

Dusty: And?

Jennifer: I'm in labor. And I know how you hate that biology stuff, so I'm sorry.

Dusty: Well, you don't look like you're in labor.

Jennifer: Well, I'm in between contractions. But you know what, they might stop because it's early and I'm not due for another couple months.

Dusty: Well, we got to get to the hospital!

Jennifer: No, wait. The thing is is that they're less than three minutes apart.

Dusty: Yes, we can't stay here. Where're the sheets?

Jennifer: Sheets? Sheets?

Dusty: Yeah, I'm not putting you in my new car without sheets. I got a new car. [Jennifer laughs] Oh, you think I'm kidding, right?

Jennifer: Oh, no. Oh!

Dusty: Oh, my God.

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

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

Jennifer: Oh, God! Oh, God, it's coming! Oh, the baby's coming!

Dr. Schiller: She's fully dilated.

Will: What does that mean?

Bob: It means the medication didn't work. Gwen is going to give birth to her baby.

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

Dusty: All right. I got the car right outside the door. The heat's on. Everything's gonna be fine, okay?

Jennifer: No, the baby's early. It's gonna be premature.

Dusty: No. They have got technology for that. Everything's gonna be fine.

Jennifer: No, but what if --

Dusty: Let's get you to the hospital. We'll worry about the what ifs later. Okay?

Jennifer: Oh, wait.

Dusty: Another contraction?

Jennifer: I don't know. Oh, God! Oh, God, it's coming! Oh, the baby's coming!

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

Sierra: You know, Mother, I'm glad that you're making some decisions, but --

Lucinda: What's the matter, honey, you're feeling left out? I can't do this if I'm going to worry about you two. I just can’t. Sierra, look to yourself, and Lily, you get your family back together again. And we'll have happy visits. And meanwhile, she is just going to help me if I need it. And I don't have to reassure her, and I can yell, I can curse at her. I can do anything I want, 'cause she's mine. Hey, are you moving in? Are you moving in tonight, or is it tomorrow?

Meg: Tonight is fine. Tonight's fine. Yes. I'll just go to the farm, get my stuff, and I'll be back in an hour.

Sierra: Moving in?

Lucinda: Yes. She's going to be right across the hall from the cancer patient.

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

Rosanna: You can't seriously believe that Craig would shove a pregnant woman to the floor.

Carly: No, no, no. I'm not talking about whatever it was that happened with Jennifer.

Rosanna: Well, I know mistakes were made during Cabot’s adoption, but that was as much of James' doing as Craig’s.

Carly: And you're taking precautions this time, and I think that's great. But Rosanna, what happens when you and Craig have different ideas about how to raise this child?

Rosanna: Well, that's not gonna happen. I mean, he was great with Cabot. That wasn't a problem.

Carly: He kidnapped Cabot, Rosanna.

Rosanna: Oh, come on. You know that was -- [Rosanna sighs] Really -- look, he has changed.

Carly: Craig will never change. He doesn't think there's anything wrong with him that a rich blonde and a new baby won't fix. I don't care how many lawyers you've hired, or how many security guards or black belt nannies, you will not be able to protect this baby if Craig decides to use it to get something he wants. He is a selfish man. And when he doesn't get what he wants, he'll do anything -- he will lie, he will cheat, he will steal, he will kidnap.

Rosanna: Okay, you've made your point. All right? But I owe him.

Carly: Well, then, give him a couple mil and say good-bye.

Rosanna: No, he wants a family. And so do I.

Carly: But do you want a family with a man you don't love?

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

Will: Uncle Bob, thank you so much for coming.

Bob: How's she doing?

Will: The E.R. Doctor actually says she's going into labor.

Gwen: But it can't be. It's too soon.

Bob: Let's get her into a room and we'll find out. Right in there.

Gwen: Oh. Wait a minute, what are you saying? It could be labor for real?

Bob: How far apart are the contractions?

Gwen: If they even are contractions.

Will: About five minutes.

Bob: When did they start?

Will: About a half hour ago.

Bob: I'll find Dr. Schiller.

Gwen: Will?

Will: I'm just going to ask him something real quick.

Gwen: Could you get me my phone?

Will: Just breathe. So how serious is this, if the baby's not supposed to be here for a while?

Bob: Well, babies have a habit of making up their own minds.

Will: What does that mean?

Bob: We'll give her a medication that will stop the contractions.

Will: And if you can't stop them?

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

Margo: Wow, you know Craig, you're just -- just barely married, you know. And that was out of nowhere. But now, a baby?

Craig: Mm-hmm. Maybe it'll keep us from jumping off a bridge.

Margo: That bad, huh?

Craig: It was bad.

Margo: Well then, I guess I'll go buy cigars or something.

Craig: Cuban, please. And make Tom pay.

Margo: Sure.

Craig: Come on, I'll walk you out.

Margo: All right, Dad --

Craig: Yes?

Margo: So what are you hoping for, a boy or a girl?

Craig: I don't care. As long as I can teach it to spell tax free municipal bonds.

[Phone rings]

Lawyer: This is Albert Parks from Skadden, Fitzhugh, Parks. I'm not sure if this is good news or bad, Rosanna, but we need to talk. So if either you or your husband could give me a call ASAP? We need to discuss the child. We need to talk. So if either you or your husband could give me a call ASAP? We need to discuss the child.

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

[Gwen groaning]

Gwen: I thought the drug was supposed to stop the contractions.

Dr. Schiller: You've got to give it a chance to work, Gwen. It hasn't even entered your system yet. Just try to relax.

Gwen: It hurts.

Dr. Schiller: Just take a deep breath.

Gwen: Okay. Where's Will?

Dr. Schiller: He's right outside.

Gwen: Can he come back inside?

Dr. Schiller: No, not just yet.

Bob: You were with Gwen when the contractions started. Was she doing anything strenuous, like running up the stairs or lifting furniture?

Will: No.

Bob: Did she trip and fall? You know, a hard fall can bring on labor.

Will: No, not at all. We were just talking.

Bob: How well does she eat? You know, she hasn't gained very much weight.

Will: She could eat better. And she doesn't really take the vitamins you guys gave her. And she smokes, sometimes, when she's stressed.

Bob: I'm sorry to hear that.

Will: Why? She's going to be fine. She's young and she's strong.

Bob: It's the baby I'm worried about.

Will: You're worried about the baby?

Bob: Well, with a premature baby, you want to give it every chance that you can. And from what you described, it points to a low birth weight.

Will: But she's not going to have the baby. The contractions are going to stop, right?

Dr. Schiller: Call O.B., I need a delivery nurse, stat.

Will: How's she doing? Can I talk to her?

Dr. Schiller: I'm sorry, Will, not now. She's fully dilated.

Will: What does that mean?

Bob: It means the medication didn't work. Gwen is going to give birth to her baby.

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

Paul: Come on, let's go.

Emily: Wait -- excuse me. I'm sorry. Can you just -- I don't want to kill the evening, honestly, but just sit back down, just for one second. Come on.

Paul: Okay.

Emily: I want you to talk me about what's really going on here.

Paul: Well, why do you want to talk about what's really going on? Fine, you know what's really going on? Craig and Rosanna, they're adopting a baby. There. We talked about it. Can we change any of that? No. Does it do any good to talk about it? Am I glad that Rosanna’s rich and so that Craig has enough money that he can finally get his hands on another innocent life and ruin it? Or am I glad that Craig and Rosanna are playing house and rubbing my nose in it? Or, even worse, that Craig and Rosanna are happily, madly in love and have moved on? No, no and no. Anything you want to say about it?

Emily: Maybe that you're hurt and a little angry.

Paul: Yes, I'm hurt and I'm angry. I'm always hurt and I'm always angry. No big deal. Now what do you want me to do? You want me to break something? You want me to take my car and drive it into a tree? You want me to burst into tears? I'm not going to do that. What I am going to do is I'm going to try way, way too hard to have fun. On the off chance that with you, I will. I want to go to the airport! Come on.

Emily: Stop. Stop. I want to go to the airport with you too, but -- come on, I'm a Mother, you know. I have a job. I have a Mother and a sister who need me. And a girl needs a few days to pack and get a good pedicure.

Paul: Okay.

Emily: Okay.

Paul: Well, let me know when you're ready to go, and we'll go. Now, we're going to need tiny, little umbrellas all over this bar and you have to buy more drinks because I just spent all my money.

Emily: They're called parasols. And I will buy your next round.

Paul: Good.

Emily: Good. Where's my wrap?

Paul: I don't know.

Emily: Did I leave it outside?

Paul: I'll go look for it. But you need to order more drinks.

Emily: Hurry back.

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

Rosanna: Look, it's true, I don't love Craig the way I once did. But I am -- fond of him, he's good company and he knows what it's like to lose a child.

Carly: I understand that. But raising a child -- it takes so much out of you. Do you really want to go into this with a man that you don't trust? With a man you don't even love?

Rosanna: Carly, I am never going to have what you and Jack have. If Paul loved me the way Jack loves you, he wouldn't have let me go. But he did. And I can't have children, so I have to adopt. And I don't want to go back to running a company full time. I want a family. I need a family. And I really need your support in this.

Carly: Of course I support you. And as for Craig, we'll just take him one day at a time.

Rosanna: Thank you. Listen, I have another really important question for you. Would you and Jack be willing to be this baby's guardian? Just in case something ever happened to me and Craig. It would mean so much to me.

Carly: We'd be honored. Jack and I would be honored to be the baby's guardian.

Rosanna: Oh, thank you. Thank you. It's just, you are a wonderful mother. I'm sure if it wasn't for you, I would've dropped my beautiful boy on his head.

[Carly remembering]

Woman: My beautiful boy! What have you done to my boy?

Rosanna: Carly?

Carly: Yeah? Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Just all this talk of motherhood made me think of something, but it's not important. So tell me, do you know if the baby's a boy or a girl?

Rosanna: No, we don't know yet. But it doesn't really matter, as long as it's healthy.

Carly: I'm so happy for you.

Rosanna: Really? So I have your blessing?

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

Jennifer: Ah, you and your sheets!

Dusty: Listen, it's got to be sanitary, right?

Jennifer: How do you know anything about delivering babies?

Dusty: I know nothing. And if you tell anyone I delivered your baby, our friendship is totally over. Do you hear me?

[Jennifer groaning]

Dusty: Take my hand. Hang in there. Don't forget to breathe. There you go. There you go. Slow down. That's it, take it easy. Ride it out. There you go.

Jennifer: No, I can't do this.

Dusty: Yes.

Jennifer: I want to go home.

Dusty: I want to go home, too.

Jennifer: I want my mother.

Dusty: Well, that's a first! Isn't it?

Jennifer: No, I'm not ready for this.

Dusty: Stop crying. Stop crying and look at me. You've got to be strong. Women have been doing this for thousands of years. Many of them without sheets. You're a very strong woman. You can do this. Right? All right. I'm going to go wash my hands.

Jennifer: No, don't leave me!

Dusty: I'm right here. I'm not leaving you. I ain't leaving ya!

[Jennifer screaming]

Dusty: I'm here! I'm right here!

Jennifer: It's coming! It's coming!

Dusty: Okay, okay. Let's take a look. I can see his head. Oh, my God. Jennifer -- you've got to push! Just push! Come on!

Lily: What's in it for Meg? That's the real question.

Sierra: She needs a job?

Lily: No, she has a job. In Alaska. No, there's more to this than meets the eye. I know it. Meg? I just have one question.

Meg: Sure. I just might have to get back to you, I haven't spoken to Dr. Berg yet.

Lily: No, no, no. This is not a medical question. I thought you were leaving for Alaska in a couple of days.

Meg: Well, Alaska’s not going anywhere.

Lily: So, you're staying here indefinitely?

Meg: As long as your mom needs me.

Sierra: Well, good. Good. Thank you. Obviously, you make our Mother feel good and we just wanted to make sure you were going to stay.

Meg: Not a problem. I'm going to go get my stuff.

Sierra: If you need anything --

Meg: Okay. Thanks.

Sierra: Well, maybe it's just that simple.

Lily: No. No, it's not. It's never that simple where Meg Snyder is concerned.

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

Carly: It's chilly.

Rosanna: I think it's going to rain.

Carly: Are you okay?

Rosanna: Sure. I'm fine. Listen, you go home. You've got kids waiting.

Carly: Well, they'd better be asleep. I think it's a really very brave thing you're doing.

Rosanna: I have to try.

Carly: I'll call you tomorrow.

Rosanna: Okay.

[Answering machine beeps]

Lawyer: This is Albert Parks from Skadden, Fitzhugh, Parks. I'm not sure if this is good news or bad, Rosanna, but we need to talk. So if either you or your husband could give me a call ASAP? We need to discuss the child. It would appear that the birth mother is going into labor.

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

Will: I know a mother is supposed to carry the baby for nine months, but Gwen is so young, it's got to count for something. And being in the hospital, I mean, they must be able to do whatever to save the baby, right?

Bob: Will, I wish I could reassure you, but I just don't know.

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

[Baby crying]

Jennifer: That's him? Dusty?

Dusty: That's him. And you did it. How does it feel?

Jennifer: Great. Thank you. I couldn't have done this without you. And the -- baby's fine, right? Dusty?

Dusty: I don't know. I mean, he's gorgeous. He's got ten fingers and ten toes.

Jennifer: Oh, thank God.
