[Carly remembering]

[Carly screams]

Carly: Stop. He's dead. She. It. Dead, dead, dead.

[Creaking outside]

[Carly screams] It's a branch -- a stupid branch.

[Door opens]

[ Glass breaks ]

[Carly screams]

Carly: Oh, J -- J.J., you -- startled me, honey.

J.J: Sorry.

Carly: What are you doing here? You're supposed to be over at the Stanhopes'.

J.J.: Jason wanted to play that game Dad got for me, "Third Empire Planet Wars." So, I said I'll find it and bring it back to his house.

Carly: Oh -- wait! Where are you going, honey?

J.J: Um, my game's down in the basement.

Carly: No, J.J. -- You can't go down there.


Will: How soon do you think you can get away?

Gwen: I don't know. Like a, half an hour, maybe. I just want to double check on some things here at the club and make sure everything is ready for opening night.

Will: You sound excited.

Gwen: Yeah, you should see how great the place is looking.

Will: Yeah? How's Casey handling the stress?

Gwen: Hmm. Actually, he's freaking out. I should probably bail him out.

Will: Okay. Well, meet me at the Lakeview in a half an hour. Don't be late.

Gwen: I wonít. I love you.

Will: Back at you.

Gwen: Okay, what's the new crisis?

Casey: I can't find my playlist for tomorrow night. I put together, like, 200 songs and somehow I deleted them all.

Gwen: Well, okay, that's no big deal. You backed it up, right?

Casey: Well, I was just about to sync into my pda but -- ah, they're all gone. Damn it!

Gwen: Okay, do you remember the order?

Casey: Well, kind of, but it was 200 songs.

Gwen: Okay, it's not the end of the world. Take a deep breath. We're going to rebuild it. I will help you.

Casey: No, I don't want to have to make you stay.

Gwen: No, it won't take that long. You put the play list back together on your drive and I'll make a backup hard copy. How long will it take?


Maddie: Will, you can't keep blowing off Calculus and expect to pass the course.

Will: I'm not blowing it off. We're just gonna cut tonight a little short, okay? We're gonna work for a half hour and then I'll work twice as long as usual tomorrow.

Maddie: What, do you have a date?

Will: Yeah, actually. Gwen's been working like crazy to get Crash going for the opening. I kind of get the feeling that this might be the last free night we get to spend together for a while.

Maddie: Hmm, tell me about it. Casey's been working 24/7 on that music and -- you know what? I have to tell you, you really need to start doing the same thing and get ready for that exam. Because if you don't pass the exam, you don't graduate.

Barbara: And you can forget about having access to your trust fund, as well.


Hal: Do you really expect me to believe that Emily has been holding Dusty somewhere all this time? She is not capable of something like that.

Meg: A lot's changed since you were married to her. She's not the same woman.

Hal: You have any proof of this?

Meg: Paul didn't try to commit suicide, Hal. He was shot. In the back, by Emily. She tried to kill him.

Hal: That's insane.

Meg: It certainly is. But that gunshot wound was not self-inflicted. And I should know, because I'm the one who nursed him back to health. So do the math. If Emily is capable of shooting Paul in the back, then she's capable of doing anything.


Emily: Jennifer!

Jennifer: Oh, my God, where --

Emily: Thank God you're okay!

Jennifer: Where is -- where is Dusty?

Emily: I have no idea.

Jennifer: I heard a gunshot.

Emily: Oh, my God, so did I. I heard the same thing. And then I saw your car outside. And I was so afraid I got here too late and something had happened to you.

Jennifer: Are you saying that you followed me here?

Emily: Yes. Yes, that's exactly what happened. You told me that Dusty tried to call you or you talked to him or something, and I was so afraid you were gonna try to go after him yourself so I contacted your brother -- I tried to and I couldn't reach him. So I figured I would -- I would go after you myself. And I've been all over town looking for you, and then I ended up in the woods and then when I -- when I saw your car outside I heard the gunshot.

Jennifer: No! You are such a liar! Where is Dusty? Where is he?


Paul: Dusty, thank God. I heard that gun shot and I thought Emily had -- Jennifer is gonna be so happy.

Dusty: Where is she?

Paul: She's around here somewhere. We can look for her together, now. You need a hand?

Dusty: One more step and you're dead.

Paul: Look, I swear to you. We need to find Emily. Now will you put that gun down?

Dusty: I will deal with Emily. Right now, I'm dealing with you.

Paul: Look! We need to find Jennifer before Emily does.

Dusty: I don't think Jennifer's around.

Paul: She just called me and said that I was supposed to help her find you! She knows that you were in the cabin and that you were locked there. And -- and what, you think now she's just gonna split?

Dusty: Take out your cell phone. Throw it right here.

Paul: Why, what -- what are you gonna do?

Dusty: I'm gonna use it to call the cops.

Paul: There isn't time for that! Emily is insane!

Dusty: Because you drove her to insanity. Get down on the ground.

Paul: What, you want me to just -- just be on the ground while Jennifer's out there trying --

Dusty: On your knees!

Paul: She shot me, you know. Emily shot me.

Dusty: Really? Talk to me, tell me more.

Paul: I wanted everybody to think that I shot myself, but that's not the truth. I just wanted everybody to believe that. The truth is that -- that Emily shot me in the back.

Dusty: Why?

Paul: Because I -- because I called off the wedding.

Dusty: You want me to believe that?

Paul: It's true! Look, we need to find Jennifer before Emily does, because if we don't find her first, God knows what Emily's gonna do to her. Now, look, I'll tell you what, we split up, we'll cover more ground that way.

Dusty: Get down! You're not going anywhere, pal.

Paul: Dusty, look, we don't have time for this!

Dusty: What the hell's that on your finger?

Paul: It's a wedding ring.

Dusty: Yeah, Emily has the same one. You know, you had me for a second when you said she shot you.

Paul: She did.

Dusty: And then you married her? Let me guess -- to protect someone, right?


Emily: Jennifer, stop, stop, okay? I know you're worried sick about Dusty. But I promise you, I have no idea where he is.

Jennifer: No, no. Stop -- stop it! You did not -- you did not follow me here, I followed you! And I called you and told you that I talked to Dusty because I knew, we knew that you would lead us right to him.

Emily: We, we, we? You and Paul? Paul?

Jennifer: Yes, yes, that's right. That's right. Oh, we knew. We knew all we had to do was plant the seed and then you would come here and check on him --

Emily: Oh, my God. He did that? He lied to me? He betrayed me?

Jennifer: Just please tell me -- tell me where he is! Just tell me where Dusty is, please. Damn it, Emily! Is he here or not? Is he --

Emily: Yes. Yes. Yes! Yes, he's here!

Jennifer: Why?

Emily: Oh, my God. I did it. I did it all for Paul! [Emily sobbing] To protect him! Everything I did was for him! Oh, God, I love him so much. And he made me believe he loved me! God -- he married me! He promised me! He promised me! Why did he do that?

Jennifer: You can cry, Emily -- you can cry later. Right now, you're gonna taking me to Dusty. Get up!


Hal: If this is true, why didn't Paul say anything? Why didn't he press charges against her?

Meg: Because he felt he deserved what he got. And he felt that he was pushing her over the edge.

Hal: Paul? He's not like that. He doesn't have a guilt-ridden bone in his body.

Meg: Are you telling me that after Paul disappeared, you never had any inkling that Emily was hiding something from you?

Hal: Well, she -- she was acting strange, but she -- but she'd just been dumped at her wedding. She was an emotional wreck --

Meg: Hal, that wasn't from a broken heart. She was freaked out because she thought she killed a man! Look, Hal, I know it's hard for you to hear, but you have to hear it and you have to do something to stop her before she does something to hurt somebody else. Like Paul or Dusty or even Jennifer.

Tom: Hal? Hey. You okay?

Hal: Yeah.

Tom: Listen, I spoke to Emily a little while ago.

Hal: Oh? You don't think Emily had anything to do with Dusty's disappearance, do you?


Will: Gee, Mom, where you been? It's been, like, a whole month since you dangled my trust fund over my head.

Barbara: Honey, I was merely reacting to what I just heard Maddie say. Now, is it true? Are you failing Calculus?

Will: No, she's just being tough on me.

Barbara: Okay, well, I need to remind you about our agreement. You have to graduate in order to have access to your trust fund.

Maddie: He's been working really hard, Ms. Ryan.

Will: And I do plan on graduating. But not because of the money. I'm not even counting on getting it anyway, even if I do graduate.

Barbara: What are you implying?

Will: That Gwen and I aren't holding our breath. She's working at Crash. And I'm making good money at the hospital. So, we're gonna do just fine with or without the trust fund.

Barbara: Not if you short-change your studies.

Will: Is there something you needed to say to me, Mom? Or are you just here to give me a hard time?

Barbara: I am trying very hard to make up for my past mistakes. Do I have to remind you who told Lisa to hire Gwen?

Will: Yeah, and Gwenís very grateful for that.

Barbara: Are you grateful, son?

Will: I don't trust your motives, Mom. I never will.

Barbara: Well then, I have a lot of work to do, don't I? But I didn't come here to talk about that, I came to ask you if you've talked to your sister.

Will: Nope, why?

Barbara: Because ever since Dusty disappeared she's become very remote, she doesn't answer her phone calls, she won't talk to me, I don't know where she is half the time.

Will: Well, maybe she's trying to get away from you.

Barbara: I have been supportive of her ever since this ordeal began. Much more than you or your brother, Paul.

Will: Okay, Mom, if I see her, then I'll tell her that you've been worried about her.

Barbara: There, now that wasn't so hard -- to be civil to your mother, was it?

Will: Are you done?

Barbara: Have a nice day, will. Nice to see you, Maddie.

Maddie: Nice to you, too.

Will: She just -- she won't quit.

Maddie: Did you ever think that she's just being honest? I mean, she looked like she was really trying, Will.

Will: Come on, please. Not you, too.

Maddie: Not me, too, what?

Will: You sound just like Gwen!


Gwen: Can I make a suggestion, oh great deejay of the night?

Casey: What, do you have a problem with the sequence?

Gwen: No, actually -- I actually like the way that you mixed the styles, but -- there's another version of the bloc party song right after the Coheed and Cambria, and it's pretty awesome.

Casey: The Ladytron remix?

Gwen: Yeah.

Casey: Yeah, I've heard of it. It's pretty good.

Gwen: Yeah, and it flows pretty well into the Arctic Monkeys track, don't you think?

Casey: Nice. Look who knows her stuff.

Gwen: Yeah, well at least I'll make some musical input. It won't be with my band, but at least it's something.

Casey: Yeah, I'm sorry that didn't work out.

Gwen: It's okay. You know, some things just aren't supposed to happen.

Casey: Yeah, but -- why don't you just go solo?

Gwen: We want to keep people in the club, not drive them out. So, I guess that's -- that's it. We're done here, right?

Casey: Actually, there's another favor I need from you.


Carly: I just don't want you getting cut by all this broken glass, that's all.

J.J.: I'm wearing shoes, Carly. How am I gonna get cut?

Carly: Well, you can never be too careful. Ow! You see what I mean?

J.J.: Are you all right?

Carly: Yeah. I'll live.

J.J.: Jack says to run it under cold water.

Carly: Oh, yeah? Well, I guess I'll do that. Jack knows best, right? You need to get back to the Stanhopes'. So, I'm gonna pick the rest of this up and I'll walk you over, okay?

J.J.: It's only, like, next door.

Carly: Yes, I know. But still, I'll just throw this away and I'll bring you over, okay?

J.J.: What about my game?

Carly: Oh -- well, you know, I think that Jack put all your games upstairs.

J.J.: No, I'm pretty sure this one's still in the basement.

Carly: Well, J.J., I really would like you to look upstairs!

J.J.: Okay, okay. You don't have to get so mad.

Carly: I'm not -- I'm not mad, honey. It's just that it's -- it's so messy down there. I don't want you to trip over something and get hurt. Okay? That's all.

J.J.: Okay.

[Phone rings]

Jack: Hello?

J.J.: Dad, is that you?

Jack: J.J.? What's up, buddy?

J.J.: I came home to get a game to take back to Jasonís.

Jack: Yeah?

J.J.: And Carly's acting all weird.

Jack: Weird how?

J.J.: I don't know. Just like, weird. She dropped some dishes and she won't let me go down to the basement.

Jack: Did she ask you to call me, buddy? Tell me the truth.

J.J.: No! No, she doesn't even know I'm doing it!

Jack: Okay. Well, she probably is just a little jittery because she's home alone, that's all.

J.J.: Can you come here and calm her down?

Jack: I don't think that's really necessary, buddy. She's gonna be okay.

J.J.: I know you guys are mad at each other, but whenever Parker and I get into a fight, you say we should work it out.

Jack: This is a little different.

J.J.: Why? Come on, Dad. Carly needs you. I can tell.

Carly: So, this is the only one I could find. I know it's not "Third Solar System Space Wars" or whatever.

J.J.: "Third Empire Planet Wars?" I know, but this one's fine.

Carly: Good. What's the matter? You seem down.

J.J.: I don't want to go back to Jasonís tonight. I'd rather stay here with you.

Carly: Aw, you always have such a good time with Jason, don't ya?

J.J.: I know, but --

Carly: What? What is it?

J.J.: I don't think you like being alone.

Carly: Oh, well, that's not really true. I'm perfectly happy. It's nice sometimes to have a little peace and quiet around here.

J.J.: I called Jack.

Carly: Why did you do that?

J.J.: I thought you were acting weird. So I asked him to come over.

Carly: Oh, J.J., I wish you hadn't done that. Because he's gonna think that I put you up to it.

J.J.: No, I told him you didn't even know I was calling.

Carly: What'd he say?

J.J.: I don't think he's coming.

Carly: Oh.

J.J.: I wish you guys weren't fighting.

Carly: Me, too. I love you.

J.J.: So, I can stay?

Carly: No. You don't want to disappoint your friend, do you? I'm sure that Jason has been really looking forward to spending tonight with you. So, come on. Let's go.

J.J.: But, Carly --

Carly: No buts!

J.J.: You know, I can walk just next door.

Carly: Huh. Well, aren't you the brave one? All right, you go ahead. Here's your game. Have a good time. Behave yourself. I'll see you in the morning, okay?

J.J.: Are you sure you're gonna be all right on your own?

Carly: Would I lie to you?

J.J.: Okay. See ya.

Carly: Okay.

J.J.: Bye.

Carly: Bye. What a night. [Door opens] Did you forget something?

[Jack sighs]


Maddie: This is good. It looks like you actually may be ready for the test. Will? Hello?

Will: Hmm? What?

Maddie: What are you doing? Are you thinking about the -- your date with Gwen?

Will: Yeah. Well, its kind our two-month anniversary, so I really wanted it to be a special night.

Maddie: Wow, two months. Time flies.

Will: Yeah. You want to see what I got her?

Maddie: Yeah!

Will: Yeah, it's a guitar strap. You know, 'cause she was -- she really bummed out that she wasn't gonna get her band back together and I didn't want her to stop playing. So I figured, you know, maybe this will be a little inspiration.

Maddie: That's so romantic. Gwen's really lucky.

Will: No, no, I'm the lucky one.

Maddie: No, you two are so in love.

Will: Whatever. You and Casey will be that close one day.

Maddie: Don't count on it.


Gwen: Why do I need a guitar for a sound check? Can't I just say, "Testing one, two, three, testing?"

Casey: I need to hear how a singer fills the room up, so --

Gwen: Well, what do you need a sound check for, anyways? What, you're gonna find another band by tomorrow night?

Casey: No. But, Lisa still hasn't given up on the idea of having live music with my mixes. So, I'm still looking for talent. You know, it should be you up on the stage tomorrow night.

Gwen: Yeah, well, that's life.

Casey: Just do me this favor, please?

Gwen: I'm lousy. I'm really lousy without backup.

Casey: I'll be the judge of that. Come on. Are you chicken? Come on.

Gwen: You're gonna owe me big time. Big.


Tom: I'm not going to lie to you. Emily was beyond edgy. When I questioned her about breaking into Meg's hotel suite, she looked scared to death.

Hal: It's Paul. Paul -- he's got her caught up in something.

Tom: Well, there's no question that she's caught up in something, but I'm not sure Paul is pulling the strings this time.

Hal: Of course he is. He's got her so desperate, she'll do anything for him.

Tom: Well, we both have our reasons for wanting Emily to be clean in all this, but I can't take any chances. I need to think about Daniel.

Hal: Emily's a lost cause, is that what you're saying?

Tom: I'm saying I need to consider my son and possibly consider the fact that Emily has become a danger to others as well as herself.

Hal: Damn it, damn it. I should've fought harder. I should've fought harder. I should've done anything to keep her away from Paul.

Tom: Well, you know how Emily is when she wants something. There's very little any of us can do about that.

Hal: Yeah, but I let her marry the guy. Here, in my jail! I stood by. I watched.

Tom: Look, don't be so hard on yourself.

Hal: Why not?

Cop #3: Lieutenant, we found Paul Ryanís car.

Hal: I'll give you a call, Tom.


Jennifer: I do not ask you again! You tell me where Dusty is! Where do you have him?

Emily: He's here!

Jennifer: If he's dead, so help me God --

Emily: No, no, he got away. He got away, Jennifer, he got away.

Jennifer: Is he hurt?

Emily: No, he was strong enough that he got away from me. I couldn't keep up with him.

Jennifer: Listen, so, you're gonna show me. You are gonna show me where he is.

Emily: Okay! Oh, God!

Jennifer: Where? Show me! Where?

Emily: He just went off -- he went off into the woods, Jennifer.

Jennifer: Where?

Emily: Oh, my God. Oh, my God, there he is! Look, right straight there! It's Dusty!

[Jennifer screams]

Jennifer: Emily! Stop!


Paul: The wedding to Emily was a sham. I was trying to trick her into telling me where you were.

Dusty: Me? The guy you tried to kill.

Paul: I never tried to kill you.

Dusty: In the motel room?

Paul: No --

Dusty: You said you'd do anything to stop me --

Paul: You said that you were gonna try and turn Jennifer against me, and I couldn't let that happen. Look, we need to stop all of this nonsense and go find Jennifer!

Dusty: I should've killed you that night.

Paul: Yeah, but you didnít. And you're not going to now.

Dusty: You'd be surprised what a few weeks in captivity can for you. I told myself if I ever saw you again, I'd kill you.

Paul: Jennifer would never forgive you.

Dusty: You hurt people that I care about. It all ends now.

Jennifer: Dusty, no, no!



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

Barbara: There's a big rock concert this weekend in Chicago, I could get you and Gwen tickets.

Dusty: Not so fast. We're not finished yet.

Jack: I think you and the kids should come stay out at the farm tonight -- with me.


Jennifer: Paul? Paul, look at me.

Paul: I'm okay. I'm fine. I'm all right. He missed?

Jennifer: Dusty. Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh!

Dusty: You got me through this. You know that? You got me through it.

Jennifer: I knew you were alive. I did, I knew. I never stopped looking for you. I never gave up.

Dusty: You didn't, did you?

Jennifer: No. Oh, are you hurt?

Dusty: No, its okay I'm fine. I'll be fine.

Jennifer: Let's get out of here. Let's go home.

Dusty: How's Johnny?

Jennifer: He misses you like crazy.

Dusty: Not so fast. We're not finished yet.


Tom: Why didn't you tell me about your suspicions about Emily yesterday?

Meg: I promised Paul I wouldn't say anything.

Tom: How does he do that? I mean, first Emily, then you. You follow him around blindly without any thought about the consequences. I just don't get it.

Meg: What do you care?

Tom: I care about my son. Emily's involvement with Paul has left him without a mother. And I don't know how she can let her own flesh and blood just cry himself to sleep at night. I mean, is anything, or anyone, really worth that?



Casey: Oh, my -- Gwen, that was amazing.

Gwen: Yeah, right. Give me a break.

Casey: I'm serious. You don't need a band. You just need that guitar and your voice.

Gwen: Quit trying to butter me up. What do you need, another favor?

Casey: Actually, it's more of a request than a favor.

Gwen: What?

Casey: Sing tomorrow night at the opening.

Gwen: Are you kidding? I was lousy just now.

Casey: No you werenít. You were right on the money. Gwen, just listen, you have to be on that stage tomorrow night.

Gwen: I'm not a solo artist. I need a band. I need the support.

Casey: No, you donít. You've got everything you need. Will you think about it?

Gwen: I did, okay? And the answer is no. You have your playlist, you don't need to add me. So, thank you but no thanks, okay?


Will: Are you saying that you and Casey are having trouble?

Maddie: No, we're okay, but --

Will: But you're getting tired of him?

Maddie: No! Oh, no, no, no, not even close. Actually, I think it's the other way around.

Will: He's getting tired of you? I don't think so. I've never seen him so into somebody before.

Maddie: Really?

Will: Yeah, and I've seen him with lots of girls, I mean lots of girls.

Maddie: Okay. I don't need to hear it.

Will: I'm saying that I don't think he's ever looked at somebody the way he looks at you. You know, you kind of make him nervous.

Maddie: How is that a good thing?

Will: It means that, you know, he can't just talk smooth with you. So he's gotta work harder at being real.

Maddie: Okay -- I would think that would scare a guy off.

Will: No, if Casey was gonna bail, he would've done it a long time ago. You're changing him, Maddie and in a good way. I think you guys are gonna be together for a long time.

Maddie: I hope so. I really like him.

Will: Hey, you got him to watch a black and white movie all the way through without falling asleep. So, you won the game in my book. You can relax.

Maddie: Thanks. Thanks.

Will: Okay, so, what else?

Maddie: Nothing. Nothing. I will see you tomorrow. Have fun with gwen tonight. She's gonna love that, I know it.

Will: Yeah, I hope so.


Carly: Why are you here, Jack?

Jack: J.J. called me.

Carly: Yeah, right. He mentioned that. He didn't think that you'd come. You just missed him.

Jack: I watched him leave.

Carly: Why didn't you say anything to him?

Jack: I didn't want him to get the wrong idea about my being here.

Carly: Oh. Well, if you think I put him up to the call, you're wrong.

Jack: No, J.J. said it was his idea, not yours. I believe him.

Carly: It's funny. You believe everybody but me.

Jack: He's worried about you, Carly.

[Carly sighs]

Carly: I'm fine.

Jack: What happened to your hand?

Carly: It's nothing.

Jack: Isn't that blood?

Carly: I cut it on a piece of glass, Jack.

Jack: J.J. said you broke a dish or something.

Carly: Well, I wonder why? It's not like I have anything to be anxious about. Like maybe the bones in my basement or a big, empty house or the fact that I'm alone in it. I guess I have no reason to be upset at all!

Jack: Can I see the cut?

Carly: I said it's nothing.

Jack: Please. Did you flush it with cold water and wash it with antiseptic soap?

Carly: Yeah.

Jack: I know you're creeped out by what happened in the basement. Anyone would be. You should've called me, Carly.

Carly: Why? Aren't I supposed to be able to cope on my own? You don't live here anymore, Jack, as you so frequently remind me. We're officially separated. You made your choice.

Jack: I also made a decision.

Carly: What?

Jack: I think you and the kids should come stay out at the farm tonight -- with me.


Paul: Do me a favor and set your boyfriend straight. Because next time he might not miss from, like three feet, away.

Jennifer: Paul has nothing to do with this, this was all Emily's plan. She's gone off the deep end.

Dusty: He gave me the same story.

Jennifer: No, but she confessed to me, just now, in the cabin.

Paul: Wait, you were alone with her? Where did she go?

Jennifer: I don't know.

Paul: We need to get out of here.

Dusty: You're not going anywhere.

Jennifer: It's okay.

Paul: I don't care if you hate me, Dusty, but we need to go. We need to find Emily and we need to stop her before she does something else that we regret.

Dusty: I think you and Emily are on the same side.

Jennifer: No, baby, please, Paul knows what he's doing.

Paul: All I'm doing is trying to stop Emily and bring her in! Because until that happens, no one is safe!

Hal: Funny, I was just thinking the same thing about you, Ryan.


Will: Gwen?

Bartender #1: Sorry, didn't mean to startle you. But it looks like your friend's not gonna show.

Will: No, she's -- she's gonna be here. She's just running late, probably.


Jack: So, by the time I'd chased the guy to the end of the alley, his belt had completely come undone and his pants fell around his ankles. That's how I caught him, can you believe that? He tripped over his own clothes and fell on his face. All I had to do was cuff him.

J.J.: Did you give his belt a medal?

Jack: See, that a good idea. I didn't think of that, good point. All right, enough silly stories for one night. Time for bed.

Carly: No, no, I'll clear up.

Jack: No, I got it, please.

J.J.: Aren't you glad I called Dad?

Carly: Now, you go upstairs and you brush your teeth and put your jammies on, okay?

Jack: And I'll be up in a minute to read you a story, all right?

J.J.: Can you both read me a story like you used to?

Carly: Jack's gonna have to go solo on the reading, I think. I have to get these dishes done before Aunt Emma comes home.

J.J.: Okay.

Carly: But, I will come up and tuck you in. I promise you that.

J.J.: All right.

Jack: Goodnight, buddy.

Carly: I have to go out to the car, I forgot something.

Jack: You okay?

Carly: This was a mistake, Jack.

Jack: Why?

Carly: It's making the kids think that things'll go back to the way they were. But that's not gonna happen, is it?

Jack: No, Carly. It's never gonna be like it was. I'll take Sage up to bed.

[Carly crying]


Barbara: Hi, Casey. Is Lisa here?

Casey: No, she took off a couple of hours ago. She was beat.

Barbara: Well, I just brought this for her to wish her luck for tomorrow night.

Casey: I'll be sure that she gets it.

Barbara: Thank you. I bet you're excited.

Casey: You know, it's coming along, yeah.

Barbara: Good, good. Well, I'm sure you have lots to do, I won't keep you. Oh, how's your hunt for singers and musicians coming along?

Casey: It's not.

Barbara: Really? Well, you know, maybe I can help you out with this. There's a big rock concert this weekend in Chicago. I could get you and Gwen tickets.

Casey: The Acid Rain tour?

Barbara: I happen to know one of the organizers.

Casey: Tickets to that -- yeah, that'd be amazing.

Barbara: Well, consider it done then. I'll have tickets for both of you at the window, all right? You know, it's the least I can do, especially for Gwen. I mean, she's my family now. And I have to make sure that things are right with her.


Gwen: Excuse me, did you see a young man -- Will Munson?

Bartender #1: No, he left a little while ago.

Gwen: I should've called -- I lost track of time.


Meg: I heard from the D.A. that they found Paul Ryanís car. Do you know if he's all right?

Cop #3: I'm sorry, I know about as much as you do.

Meg: Could you please let me know if you hear anything?

Cop #3: Sure.

Meg: Thanks. Please, God. Please let him be all right.


Hal: Cuff him. And read him his rights, again.

Jennifer: No, Dad, no -- don't do this. Please, Paul had nothing to do with the kidnapping.

Hal: Then what is he doing here?

Jennifer: He came out here to stop Emily from hurting Dusty.

Hal: A woman he married less than a week ago?

Paul: No, I only did that because I didn't want -- I wanted her to tell me where Dusty was.

Hal: If you knew she'd kidnapped him, why didn't you call the cops?

Paul: Because if she felt cornered then she would kill Dusty.

Hal: As usual, you've got an answer for everything. Don't you, Paul?

Paul: Look, you take me in, you can kiss whatever chance you had of finding Emily good-bye because I am the only one that she trusts. You need to let me go and find her.

Hal: I don't need to let you do anything! You escaped custody. You're a fugitive. That's starting to be a habit with you, Paul

Jennifer: Dad, you're making a big mistake.

Hal: No, sweetheart, no. You are. Dusty, that leg doesn't look too good. What happened?

Dusty: Bear trap.

Jennifer: Set by Emily, no doubt.

Hal: It was definitely her?

Dusty: Yeah.

Hal: Was she working alone?

Dusty: I don't see how that could be possible.

Hal: Where's Emily is now?

Jennifer: I saw her at the cabin but then she just ran off.

Hal: All right, get out of here. Get Dusty to a hospital.

Dusty: You want a statement?

Hal: No, after you're treated.

Jennifer: Dad, Paul didn't do this.

Paul: It's okay. I'm all right.

Jennifer: Thank you.

Paul: Oh, come on, it was the least I could do.

Hal: Get him out of here. Call Kowalski in. I want these woods turned inside out until we find her.

Cop #5: Sure thing, Lieutenant. Come on.

Paul: You're gonna let Meg go, right?

Hal: Give it up, Paul.

Paul: You just heard Dusty say that it was Emily who kidnapped him. Meg is off the hook.

Hal: Why do you care?

Paul: Just tell me that you're gonna let Meg go.

Hal: Get him out of my sight.

Paul: Look, do what you want to me, I don't care -- but promise me, Hal, please, that you're gonna let Meg go!

Hal: Get him out of my sight!

Paul: That's all I care about!


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

Carly: It feels so good not to be alone.

Jack: Yeah.

Paul: I heard someone was chilly.

Meg: Paul!

Gwen: It was like something was shut off and he was just --

Will: A big jerk?
