Jade: Maddie? What are you doing?

Will: Thanks. Didn't you get anything?

Gwen: I'm not thirsty. Unless you have an extra three bucks.

Will: No. So we'll share.

Gwen: No, it's okay. You're the one who needs to think. You get the caffeine.

Will: This is so lame.

Gwen: I get paid tomorrow.

Will: I got to go back to the hospital job.

Gwen: No, no, no. You finish school, all right? We'll make it. Besides, your mom said that she was going to give you the trust fund, so --

Will: Oh right, the trust fund, the magical, mythical trust fund that she likes to dangle in our faces.

Gwen: I don't think she was lying. I mean, not now. If anything, it seemed like she was desperate to keep us around.

Will: Yeah, after the memorial, it was probably pretty hard to be alone. So she said whatever it took, you know, to get us to stay.

Gwen: But you don't think she meant it?

Will: Well, that's the thing with barbara ryan -- she absolutely means it, at the time.

Gwen: That's why she's so convincing.

Will: Yeah, exactly. But it never lasts.

Gwen: Okay. So, I guess we are on our own. I get a paycheck tomorrow. If I perform a couple of times this week that's a few extra bucks.

Will: So how's it look? You think we can go on a date?

Gwen: You mean that magical, mythical date that we keep talking about? Let's see -- oh boy, well -- no movies out for a while. But we can buy pay-per-view at carly's, and pop our own corn. That's only, like, 69 cents a bag.

Will: So, we're set. 'Cause I didn't see any of the movies that came out last summer.

Gwen: All right. We have a date.

Barbara: Hey, guys. I'm glad I found you. Carly said you might still be here studying.

Will: Yeah, I'm trying to catch up.

Barbara: Good.

Gwen: Is everything okay?

Barbara: I hope so. It's about your trust fund.

Will: Let me guess.

Barbara: Well, it's been a little more complicated than I thought.

Will: Uh huh.

Barbara: But, I've done it. You'll be getting your money today.

Mike: You still got it?

Katie: It's never coming off my finger.

Mike: Well, it's insured this time.

Katie: I mean it. I am never letting this ring go again.

Mike: Well, just in case you get washed out to sea and stuck on an island with a con man you used to be married to --

Katie: Like that could ever happen! So glad to be home.

Mike: I hope not too glad to go out.

Katie: Are we still celebrating our never-ending honeymoon?

Mike: Maybe. Why don't we start with a table for two at the lakeview?

Katie: Sounds perfect.

Lucinda: Um, I don't want anything. Look -- I think there's been a mistake, but I'm going to ask anyway. Are you missing any cash from your cash register?

Bartender #1: Not that I know of, ma'am.

Lucinda: Okay. Has any wealthy female guests said that somebody's stolen all her money?

Bartender #1: No, ma'am.

Lucinda: Oh, I was afraid of that. I'm the victim of a prank. Unless, of course, there's been a big lug of a guy with a down under accent and a big smile lurking around your bar? All right.

Simon: Ah, it always did take you forever to ask the right questions.

Lucinda: Simon!

Simon: In the flesh. Come on, you can be honest with me. You always have been. You missed me, didn't you?

Judge: Ms. Stewart, tell the court how you plead.

Emily: Your honor, on advice of my counsel, I --

Dusty: Wait!

Judge: And who are you?

Dusty: I'm the victim, and I want to be heard.

Cass: Your honor, we request an immediate recess.

Dusty: Not before you hear what I have to say.

Tom: Your honor, mr. Donovan was the victim in this crime. He has understandable concerns. He doesn't wish to see this defendant escape without punishment. Perhaps if we can assure him that there is a deal in place that guarantees jail time --

Dusty: I don't care about your deal.

Cass: Your honor, the district attorney is absolutely right. We have already been through substantive negotiations --

Dusty: You want to be a hero, counselor? Sit down.

Cass: Your honor, we still request a recess, a brief recess.

Judge: You have one minute.

Cass: Thank you, sir.

Tom: We will get you your justice, dusty.

Dusty: No you won'T. You can'T.

Paul: What's dusty going to do? He's going to let emily go.

Meg: We don't know that. He could want emily in jail for life.

Paul: Meg, you know him. What do you think he's going to do?

Meg: I can't tell. But if he tries to let her off the hook, we'll deal.

Judge: Okay, let's have it. First, ms. Stewart will enter a plea. Ms. Stewart? Counselor? The charges are felony kidnapping and attempted murder. How does the defendant plead?

Emily: Not guilty. Captioning sponsored by procter & gamble productions, inc. And cbs

Tom: Your honor, may we approach?

Paul: Dusty, you can't let emily go. Not after what she did to you.

Dusty: Get away from me.

Susan: Emily, we should've talked to dusty ourselves before the hearing.

Emily: No, this is right.

Susan: What makes you so sure he's here to forgive you?

Emily: Mother, this is what I've been hoping for all along. He loved jennifer, and she wanted this.

Susan: Paul loved jen --

Emily: It's not the same.

Susan: Then why won't dusty even look at you?

Cass: My client hadn't formally entered a plea. She has the right to change her mind.

Tom: So, you really want to take your chances with a jury? Really? I mean, even if dusty is here to tell us all that he's forgiven emily, there's still evidence.

Judge: Okay, the deal you two had is obviously off the table, correct? So, let's step back and set a trial date. A plea has been entered, and we're proceeding. I'll expect filings by --

Dusty: Your honor! I want to be heard.

Judge: And you will be, mr. Donovan. Now that a trial's been set, you can testify and then you can give a victim's impact statement --

Dusty: No, no, no, no, no. I don't want a trial.

Judge: That's not up to you, mr. Donovan. The district attorney has a case. He can still present it.

Dusty: No, you won't go to trial with me. I'm done.

Tom: Dusty, let's talk after the hearing.

Dusty: No, no, no. I'm done talking. I'm done with all of it.

Tom: You need to decide this, then.

Dusty: You go to trial, you go without my testimony. You understand? It's over.

Jade: What's your problem?

Maddie: Who says I have one?

Jade: Bad move.

Maddie: What? I haven't done anything.

Jade: You're not watching casey and lia?

Maddie: I saw them, but I wasn't watching them. Casey and I broke up, so, whatever --

Jade: Uh huh.

Maddie: Why are you hanging around here for?

Jade: I work here. I came here to set things up and open up. We're lucky this place didn't burn to the ground.

Maddie: We?

Jade: Everybody. Especially the person who set the fire. Maybe the cops will go easy on them.

Maddie: I hope not.

Jade: You're a real freak for punishment, aren't you? I'll see you around.

[ Jade clears throat ] Sorry. I have to get set up for tonight.

Casey: No problem.

Lia: Hey, you want to go somewhere?

Casey: Like -- ?

Lia: I don't know. Someplace we can be alone.

Casey: You know what, jade's right. If we're going to open tonight, I need to make sure the sound system's working, so --

Lia: I wonder if that's why she did it.

Casey: What?

Lia: Maddie. I mean, if she wanted to punish you, what better way to do it than set a fire. I mean, you love this job.

Casey: Lia, back off. Maddie did not start the fire.

Lia: I'm just -- I'm worried about you, okay?

Will: I'm getting my trust fund?

Barbara: Yes.

Will: Really?

Barbara: Yes, really. And I'm sorry it took so long, but there were a lot of conditions that had to be adjusted in order for you to get early access, and I had no idea there was so much paperwork involved, but honey -- I've done it. It was good for me. I needed to focus on something.

Will: Great.

Gwen: Yeah, you should stay busy, barbara. It'll be good for you.

Barbara: Over here, jess. Now, jessica has everything with her, and assuming everything's in order --

Will: We're signing papers today?

Barbara: Are all the papers ready?

Jessica: Yes they are. I just had to wait for the bank to set up the account. How're you doing?

Will: Hi.

Jessica: This will remove any previous codicils or restrictions. Barbara, I just need your signature here.

Will: I'm getting my trust fund?

Barbara: Yes, honey.

Will: What's the catch?

Jessica: There is no catch.

Will: No, I get it, like, when I'm 50, you know -- or she picks out my clothes and my career for --

Barbara: I deserve that.

Jessica: Will, you're getting your trust fund. Right now. So, as of today, you're going to have a lot of your friends eating their hearts out.

Lucinda: You think I missed you? Well, yes, as a matter of fact -- you know, somebody should keep their eyes on you at all times, as a public service.

Simon: Well, I missed you too.

Lucinda: Yeah.

Simon: And I heard about lily. I'm sorry.

Lucinda: Oh, yeah. But she's going to be back on her feet. I'm determined.

Simon: Good. Then it'll happen. In the meantime, if I can help you, if you need anything, absolutely.

Lucinda: Thank you, thank you. Well, look. You've brought sincere simon back to town. Oh, what is going to befall us? What is going to happen? What are you here for? Why did you lure me to this bar?

Simon: Lure you? No. This is all completely innocent. I just want to buy you a drink.

Lucinda: Oh, because I'm one of the few people left in town that you haven't bilked?

Simon: One of the few who appreciated a fellow-- entrepreneur.

Lucinda: Entrepreneur? You know, that's what's wrong with the french. They have no word for entrepreneur. So, what is this latest caper?

Simon: Caper? No. Come on. No caper, no scam.

Lucinda: What are you doing here in town?

Simon: No, no.

Lucinda: Oh, well come on. Come on, let's say hello to the happy couple.

Simon: Lucinda, no.

Lucinda: Come on, come on.

Lucinda: Hi!

Mike: Hi, lucinda.

Katie: Hi.

Lucinda: Nancy hughes informed me that you were off on a very luxurious honeymoon cruise. Getting into that -- your royalty money, right?

Katie: Well, yeah, we tried, but -- how's lily?

Lucinda: No change, but we're hoping for the best. I was reading to her at the hospital and I got the biggest surprise. Look who's --

Mike: Something wrong with the bar?

Lucinda: No, it's surprisingly empty. Lisa needs more customers.

Mike: I think everyone's in the dining room.

Katie: Actually, we have reservations, so --

Lucinda: Go ahead. Go ahead.

Katie: Good to see you.

Mike: Bye.

Lucinda: Have fun. Enjoy yourselves. I would've looked for you behind a potted palm, but there wasn't one big enough for your ego.

Simon: Thank you for not telling them I was here.

Lucinda: Well, it's a temporary reprieve, simon. So, tell me now. What's going on? Why are you hiding from katie and her new husband? Oh!

Will: I don't believe this. So, gwen's name can be on all the accounts, we can share the money?

Barbara: That's for you to decide, will.

Jessica: I need you to sign here as well.

Barbara: Would you like to explain to him how this works?

Jessica: Of course. Of course you won't be getting the money all at once. The fund will be transferred in installments. That's for tax purposes, among other things. This is the first installment. After that, the money will be transferred in regular payments.

Barbara: Do you think that's enough to start with?

Will: Um, yeah. We can make that work.

Barbara: And if you ever need more cash, there's a mechanism in place, right, jess?

Jessica: That's correct. If you need more cash for any reason, just call me and I'll walk you through the procedure.

Will: But this much is mine right now. It's not like you're holding onto it until I get my diploma?

Barbara: Honey, you know that I'm hoping you're gonna finish high school, but that money is yours. You decide how to use it.

Jessica: Will, I'm gonna need your signature as well.

Will: Wait.

Barbara: What, what?

Will: I can't, this is just so weird. I don't even know what to ask, but there has to be a catch.

Gwen: I believe her.

Barbara: Why thank you. Listen to that smart girl you married, all right?

Will: No strings, no surprises?

Barbara: No strings. Oh, but there is something I want.

Will: What?

Barbara: Be happy. Both of you.

Jade: Your grandmother called. She wanted to know if the sound system was okay.

Casey: It seems to be.

Jade: It's funny, in here, it's like the fire didn't even happen.

Casey: Yeah.

Jade: So, is your mom gonna arrest whoever did this?

Casey: That's her job.

Jade: Well, do they have any leads?

Casey: I didn't ask.

Jade: Well, they're gonna keep questioning people, right? I mean, talking to the witnesses. The police aren't giving up yet, are they?

Casey: What's it to you?

Jade: I know that this a sore subject, casey, but I think I know who set that fire.

[ Maddie remembering ]

Casey: Come on,

it'll be fun.

Tom: Dusty, I will make this as easy on you as I can, but I need your testimony.

Dusty: No. Emily goes loose.

Cass: Your honor, may we approach again, please?

Judge: Where are we?

Cass: Without donovan, he's got nothing to corroborate any physical evidence he allegedly has. No case.

Judge: Mr. Hughes, is that right?

Paul: Dusty, look, I know you're trying to do what jennifer wanted. But emily could snap at any moment. I mean, look at what she did to you. Nobody saw that coming. She could snap again, and this time an innocent child would be hurt.

Dusty: The same way you kept johnny away from your sister?

Paul: Well, yeah, but -- I mean, I've learned -- I don't know, dusty, it's not the same to me somehow.

Dusty: It's done.

Judge: Gentlemen, make your motions.

Cass: Your honor, given these latest developments, we respectfully request that the charges against ms. Stewart be dropped.

Judge: Counselor?

Tom: Without mr. Donovan's corroborating testimony, we would choose not to proceed at this time.

Judge: The charges against emily stewart are hereby dismissed. The defendant is free to go.

Paul: Wait! No, no, no, you can't just let her walk!

Judge: Order!

Paul: You have to lock her up!

Judge: Bailiff?

Paul: She shot me. And I want her arrested for that! She did, emily shot me!

Cass: Oh, come on.

Paul: What, you don't believe me? Look! Emily wanted me dead, and she damn near got her wish!

Announcer: Coming up on "as the world turns" --

Simon: I'm back here in oakdale to settle down -- for good.

Lucinda: Or until you can win katie back?

Maddie: No! No!

Casey: Maddie -- maddie!

Maddie: Don't touch me! Don't touch me! Don't touch me! Don't touch me!

( Acoustic guitar playing throughout )

Cass: Is this true? To me, not them, not out loud, say nothing, just shake your head or nod. Oh, lovely. Not one word. Your honor, whatever wild, outlandish claims mr. Ryan might choose to make --

Judge: Ms. Stewart shot you?

Paul: Yes, emily shot me and everyone in this room knows that.

Judge: And to think, my day started off on the boring side. Go on.

Cass: Your honor, this is not the proper forum for this.

Judge: This started out as a competency hearing. Shooting a man is relevant.

Emily: No, but he's only trying to take my baby away.

Cass: Emily --

Emily: That's why he's bringing it up now!

Cass: Sit down.

Emily: Why?

Cass: Your honor, my client is right. Mr. Ryan is trying to smear her.

Paul: Smear her? She shot me! Look!

Judge: We see the scar, mr. Ryan, enough. Counselor, is this true? And if so, why am I the last to know? Shouldn't this be in the defendant's file? Shouldn't there be charges?

Tom: It's not quite that simple, your honor. At the time mr. Ryan was shot, he was a fugitive from the law. But he didn't report the shooting. He, in fact, staged his own death. By the time he was found, he was claiming the gunshot wound was self-inflicted. He never pressed charges.

Paul: Exactly, I went easy on emily and look what happened. She kidnapped and nearly killed another man. Even if dusty wants her to go free, I don't! She could hurt somebody else. I want her arrested for shooting me!

Judge: Fine, fine. Go to the police and swear out a complaint.

Paul: No! I want it done now.

Judge: That's not the procedure.

Paul: Procedure? Look, I swear to you, she is a dangerous woman. She doesn't belong on the streets.

Meg: Paul, it's okay.

Judge: Counselor?

Tom: Obviously we agree that ms. Stewart needed to be held. She had already confessed to her other crimes and was ready to plead guilty an hour ago.

Cass: Because she felt trapped, your honor, and she was hoping to receive mental health care, not because she felt criminally culpable.

Judge: Okay, enough. I get the drift. Everybody pipe down! Is there any supporting evidence for this claim that you can present? Anybody here who can testify for you?

Paul: Absolutely. Meg snyder.

[ Lucinda laughing ]

Simon: Oh, great, yeah. I'm glad you find it funny.

Lucinda: No, it's not that funny.

Simon: No, I know, mike and a certain heiress definitely did not. And not once -- not once has he thanked me for saving katie's life.

Lucinda: I find it very hard to believe that you could not differentiate between a luxury resort hotel and a barren wasteland.

Simon: I know, it's strange. Like, in the last minute, my outback skills seemed to have failed me.

Lucinda: Oh, yeah.

Simon: Look, at any rate, the happy couple's home. They don't want to be bothered.

Lucinda: But you followed them?

Simon: I didn't follow them. No, I came back to oakdale -- to see you.

Lucinda: That is utterly shameless.

Simon: Shameless, but true. I'm looking for a business partner. And since you won't have me any other way --

Lucinda: That's not true. You know, I'm always looking for a nice bit of corporate arm candy.

Simon: I'm a little too well-funded for that sort of thing these days.

[ Lucinda laughing ]

Mike: I reserved a table.

Maitre d': I know, and we're very sorry, sir. But people are lingering longer than we expected. Please, drinks are on the house. We'll call you as soon as there's a table.

Katie: Thank you.

Mike: I'm sorry, baby.

Katie: It's okay.

Mike: I just -- I wanted one perfect meal.

Katie: And I wanted one perfect cruise. But nobody's throwing up or falling overboard yet, so you're doing better than me.

Mike: Well, I guess we could have our champagne here.

Katie: Truth? I'd much rather go home and be alone with you.

Mike: Let's go.

Katie: Let's go!

Lucinda: What is going on?

Simon: All right. All right, I'm telling you -- I'm telling you the utter truth here, I'm not here for katie. I am back here in oakdale to settle down -- for good.

Lucinda: For good? Or you can win katie back?

Jessica: Here's the account information. Will, your name is the only name on it at the moment, but if you want to add gwen, that won't be a problem. Or if you'd like to take some of the cash and set up a separate account, that wouldn't be difficult either. Most importantly, this is the trust officer at the bank, he's really looking forward to meeting you. He is incredibly smart, great at investments and money management. His only job is to look out for your interests. So, before you buy that mansion on lake michigan or any other extravagant, give him a call.

Will: Okay.

Jessica: Any other questions?

Will: No, I'm good. Gwen?

Gwen: I -- I'm good.

Jessica: Good!

Barbara: Thank you so much, jess. I'll walk you out, all right?

Jessica: My pleasure. Have a good day.

Will: Thank you.

Gwen: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. Wait, we just got, like, punk'd, right? Somebody's going to come out with the camera.

Will: A camera and a deed to the brooklyn bridge.

Gwen: We don't need a bridge. I mean, we don't really need anything crazy.

Will: Well, a little crazy. Come on.

Gwen: Okay, like, a movie in the theater with a jumbo container of popcorn.

Will: Yeah, or we could just put a down payment on the theater.

Gwen: Yeah? I don't really want a theater, though, because we don't have any place to put it. What -- I don't -- what do you do with money, anyways?

Will: What do you want to do? Tell me, anything.

Gwen: I guess I could go online to a music store and buy every album that I ever wanted.

Will: Why not?

Gwen: Okay, we have to stop.

Will: Stop what? I'm not seeing the problem here.

Gwen: I -- it -- no, it's just -- I can't believe that I can actually get, like, a new guitar.

Will: Yeah, two new guitars.

Gwen: Okay, what about you?

Will: A car.

Gwen: Yeah, uh-huh, we could.

Will: We can get you a car to match your outfit. And a recording studio, you know, in home.

Gwen: We could, yes, if we had a home.

Will: Well, that's next on the list. A place of our own.

Gwen: Okay, all right, with a space for you, too. I get my own recording studio and you get a studio for whatever it is that you want to do.

Will: And a room for johnny to play in when he comes over.

Gwen: Definitely.

Will: And maybe in some time, we could start a charity foundation in jennifer's name.

Gwen: That's a really good idea.

Will: Yeah, for sick kids. You know, like johnny was.

Gwen: She would like that. This is, like, beyond amazing. Oh my god!

Will: Yeah.

Gwen: Okay, I have to go. I'm gonna be late for work.

Will: You don't have to go to work. You don't have to work again.

Gwen: Okay, I don't have to, but I want to. I'll always want to work. Are you gonna keep up with school?

Will: Yeah, I'm definitely gonna get my diploma. There's enough rich morons in the world.

Gwen: Hey, we can go to college. I mean, I know we didn't apply anywhere because we didn't have the money. But, you know, we could probably still get into oakdale U.

Will: You get the applications, we'll sign up.

Gwen: Okay -- okay, I gotta go or I'll miss the bus.

Will: Call a cab. And then we're gonna celebrate when you get home.

Gwen: All right, movie and popcorn. I love you.

Will: I love you.

Gwen: This is, like, incredible. I was just worried about getting through the summer, you know, without will having to get another job. But this is -- this is, like, beyond. I --

Barbara: Well, it's one of the perks of being my child -- I don't want will to ever have to worry about money again.

Gwen: Thank you for making his life so much easier.

Barbara: You're a good girl, gwen. You make my son happy.

Gwen: I hope I do for a very long time.

Me, too.

Jade: See you later.

Lia: Hey, I don't really have to go.

Casey: You know, gwen and I have a lot of work to do.

Lia: Okay, well, I'll just make some calls until you're done. I just have to get my phone charger out of the car. I'll be back. Oh, my god! My car! Look, maddie is destroying it!

Casey: Just, don'T. Stay here, I'll handle.

Casey: Fun.

Fun.

Fun.

Fun.

[ Maddie screaming ]

Maddie: No! No!

Casey: Maddie -- maddie!

Maddie: Don't touch me! Don't touch me! Don't touch me! Don't touch me! Stop it!

Casey: Maddie! Drop the knife! Let me take it. Maddie? Can you hear me? Maddie, forget about them. Look at me. What's going on with you?

Gwen: Maddie did that?

Looks like it.

Casey: What's got you so angry that you'd do that?

Gwen: Hey maddie, it's me. Look at me. You want to talk to me?

Casey: Hey, go call my mom.

Gwen: Okay.

Will: Here's the most expensive, silliest cup of coffee they have.

Barbara: Oh, you're buying?

Will: Yes.

Barbara: Good. You need to splurge.

Will: Yeah, you do too, mom. You need to be good to yourself, after everything.

Barbara: I just still can't believe that your sister's gone --

Will: So, how are you holding up? I know you said that the trust fund stuff took a while, but do you have any other projects or whatever?

Barbara: Oh, I know I need to do something. I went to B.R.O. Yesterday, and I just see your sister in every inch of the place.

Will: So, maybe it's time for a new place. You can do a new start, right?

Barbara: Yeah, I could. I can afford to. I could do that. I don't know what I want to do. I know I want to help with johnny as much as I can. As much as dusty wants me to. And I do know this. I will never put my career ahead of my family, again.

Will: That's good. You know, I think you're going to be happier. I mean, you know, gwen's actually worried about you.

Barbara: Is she?

Will: Yeah. She's thinks you're going to be lonely.

Barbara: Oh, and she doesn't want her mother-in-law in her hair.

Will: Ha. There you are. I knew you were hiding in there somewhere.

Barbara: So what about you? What are you going to do? The first thing you're going to do, is talk with that trust officer about all of this.

Will: Mm hmm. We're going to take it, you know, slow. Small stuff at first.

Barbara: But then what? I mean, you're both busy. You're both going to stay busy, right?

Will: For a while. I think first thing on the list is to get our own place.

Barbara: Oh. Oh. Well, if you want any help with that, just let me know. In fact, you know what, I just found out about a place that I think would be the perfect home for you and gwen.

Tom: So you found mr. Ryan bleeding at the cliffs in coker's woods?

Meg: Yes, he'd climbed back up. Emily had shot him and then pushed him over the cliff.

Cass: Objection. Hearsay.

Judge: Counselor, this isn't a trial. Let's get the woman's story.

Tom: Thank you. So you did find paul?

Meg: Yes, he was nearly dead. I did whatever I could to keep him alive. I've been a nurse for over ten years, so I know gunshot wounds. Paul ryan was shot in the back.

Tom: And in your opinion, as a medical professional, there's no way this was a self-inflicted wound?

Meg: No.

Tom: Thank you.

Cass: Did you witness the shooting?

Meg: No.

Cass: So, you have no direct knowledge of who shot paul ryan?

Meg: Emily was furious at paul for refusing to marry --

Cass: Thank you, ms. Snyder. Your honor, it's become quite clear to me that this is nothing more than a swafen jer hunt.

Paul: Emily confessed, okay? To anybody who'd listen. We all know she did it!

Cass: We are the first to admit that my client was in a confused mental state the past few months.

Judge: Okay, we get it. Counselor, does the state want to take this one on?

Tom: We're not prepared to file at this time. All the physical evidence from the scene pointed to a suicide.

Paul: Yes, I told you. I was just trying to give emily a break!

Tom: Well, congratulations, paul. You did.

Judge: Up here, counselor.

Tom: Your honor, we have no case against this defendant for this crime.

Judge: Then we're back where we started. Ms. Stewart, you are free to go.

Katie: I don't know why we ever needed a change of scenery.

Mike: I know I did. As weird as it got later, you did save me with that cruise. I didn't forget that.

Katie: Any time.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Mike: Ignore it?

Katie: Okay.

[ Doorbell rings ] Oh, we can't do that! We don't know for sure that it's trouble. That could be anybody in the world.

Mike: I don't care about anyone in the world, except you.

Katie: Maybe it's the rest of our luggage from the ship. Come on!

Mike: All right.

[ Doorbell rings ] Coming!

Messenger: Katie peretti?

Katie: It's kasnoff.

Messenger: Can you sign? It has to be your signature.

Katie: Sure. Thank you.

Mike: Hang on. Thanks. I think.

Katie: Definitely too small to be a bomb, right? Shall I do the honors?

Mike: Go ahead.

Katie: "Katie. I found this after you left and knew you'd want it back. All the best. Simon." Look!

Mike: Yeah.

Katie: He found my wedding ring.

Mike: Or stole it off your finger while you were sleeping.

Katie: Don't know. Straight from magique island. Now this is such good news!

Mike: How is ever hearing from him good news?

Katie: Because, he said "all the best." Not "I'll love you 'til I die" or "until the next time I see you." He accepts us. That's what this means.

Mike: Okay, you get all that from two sentences?

Katie: Yeah. Let's take it, okay? Hmm, a little much.

Mike: A little? You can barely bend your finger.

Katie: Oh, why would I need to?

Mike: Keep it as a spare.

Katie: I'll keep it as a reminder. You're twice as married to me now.

Mike: I can live with that.

Simon: Please, I'm not here for katie. I mean, the truth is, and this may tickle your funny bone a little bit, but, I'm here to make you some more money.

Lucinda: Oh, so you've come to oakdale not for the waters, but for the vast investment opportunities?

Simon: I'd need some place to set up.

Lucinda: Ah. Seen new york, london, or hong kong?

Simon: I know the people here.

Lucinda: Yes, and alas, they all know you. Darling, they'll see you coming.

Simon: All right, this time, lucinda, and I swear to you, I swear to you -- I'm on the level, I promise. I'm an investor now.

Lucinda: You're just here to invest?

Simon: Purely invest, that's right. That's it.

Lucinda: That's the story. Or just to bide your time, until you figure out how to get whatever it is you want. And at that time you will tell, katie and mike that you're here.

Will: So you found me and gwen a place to live?

Barbara: Well, I wasn't really looking, but I did happen to hear of a place. Beautiful, city views, two bedrooms.

Will: Let me guess -- it's a suite at the lakeview?

Barbara: Right down the hall.

Will: Right. That's a good one. All right, I'm going to get to class.

Barbara: All right, hon. I'm glad we had a little time today.

Will: Me too.

Barbara: Don't be a stranger, okay?

Will: Yeah. When gwen and I get settled, you know, you can be our first dinner guest.

Barbara: I look forward to it.

Gwen: I don't know, mrs. Hughes. I got here, and lia's car was all torn up and maddie was just sitting there with a knife, looking like a zombie. Okay, I'll tell him. Do you have any idea what set her off?

Jade: Yeah. Lia and casey were kissing, and maddie saw it. But supposedly, she was the one who broke it off, so what's her problem?

Gwen: Well, even if I broke up with will, if I saw him with someone new, I'd go crazy.

Casey: It's me, see? Okay? Lia said you were jealous and I was like, no way. 'Cause, I thought -- I mean, you broke up with me, right? So what's going on?

Maddie: Everything's so mixed up in my head.

Casey: What is? Please, before the police get here. It'll be okay if you just tell me.

Cass: Thank you. And I'm sorry for your loss.

Emily: I, I'm free.

Susan: I know. You are. But I wasn't expecting -- I haven't even cleaned your room yet.

Emily: My room? I'm free. Me and my baby are free.

Susan: I know! I know. Oh, sweetie.

Meg: Let's go. I know it's not what you wanted, but we'll cope. And there's time before the baby's born, we have options, you know. But for now --

Paul: How could you do this? I won't let you hurt our child.

Emily: Get out of my way, paul. You can't touch me now.

>On the next, "as the world turns" --

Holden: What are you doing here?

Damian: I came to see lily.

Paul: So that's what this is? You let emily go to try to get back at me?

Margo: Officer griffin, you'll read maddie her rights, and then we'll take her down to the station for questioning.

Casey: But mom --

Margo: Casey. A crime's been committed. My boys... are boys.
