Simon: Carly, I know I messed up tonight, royally. I know. Truly, I'm sorry.

Carly: You are the last person that I want to see in my face right now.

Simon: Look, I admit, inviting you out to dinner to make Katie squirm, it was stupid. It was dumb. I didn't even know why I did it. And I understand if you're angry. Even if you want to quit. But please, I feel awful if I hurt you.

Carly: Let's just call it a night, okay? Shall we?

Simon: Because I don't want to. I feel awful. Please, tell me how I can make it up to you.

Carly: What I really want is for you to go.

Simon: And leave you here all alone to brood in the darkness because I acted like a complete jackass? I can’t. So one more time, with feeling, I am sorry. Wow, neat trick. So that means you must accept my apology, then.

Jack: Carly, I reset the fuses in the smoke alarm. Listen, I got to apologize -- Simon -- wow. Come on, haven't you caused Carly enough trouble? Please, Buddy, just -- just go.

Simon: I will. I will, Jack, I will. If that's what Carly wants.

Damian: If you're looking for the combination to my safe, it's the same as my birthday.

Lucy: Don't worry. I'm not after cash, jewels, or bond certificates.

Damian: Then might I again inquire?

Lucy: I'm pathologically wide awake after the blowout with my grandmother. I really hate confrontations.

Damian: Sometimes they can't be avoided.

Lucy: So instead of tossing and turning, I thought I'd go out. I was just looking for something to write you a note with.

Damian: There's a pen right there in plain sight.

Lucy: Yeah, you're right. What's the expression? "If it was a snake, it would've bit me?"

Damian: Lucy, please don't insult my intelligence. I know what you're looking for. My medical records. Am I right?

Barbara: Hello, my two favorite guys.

Dusty: Hi, Barbara.

Barbara: Hey. What are you two doing up so late?

Dusty: We're just taking a few laps around the lobby.

Barbara: In other words, you were going stir crazy in your room upstairs?

Dusty: Something like that.

Barbara: Dusty, you two have been batching it up there for days. The only time you ever leave Johnny with me is when you go visit Jennifer's grave. And you know Jennifer wouldn't want you cooped up all alone with him 24/7. That's not what she would have wanted.

Dusty: It's okay.

Barbara: No it's not.

[Maddie screaming] [The person in the mask tries to drown Maddie over and over]

[Maddie gasping]

Maddie: Help! [The person in the mask runs off]

Gwen: Hey! Did somebody call for help? Hey! I heard screaming. Who's out there?  

Gwen: Maddie? Maddie? Oh my God!

[Maddie screaming]

Maddie: Help me! Somebody! Somebody help me!

Gwen: Maddie, its okay.

Maddie: Help me! Don't hurt me! Don't hurt me!

Gwen: Maddie, it's me. It's your friend. Come here. Let me help you. Lean on me, okay? Okay? [Maddie gasping] Okay. Okay. It's okay. You okay? Okay, you're okay. Sit here. You're okay. You're with me. You're safe now. You're okay. Okay? Maddie, Sweetie, can you tell me what happened?

Maddie: Somebody tried to kill me.

Dusty: On a scale of one to ten, I'm in the doghouse.

Barbara: I know that.

Dusty: Johnny boy's doing everything he can to lift my spirits.

Barbara: Yeah. Two guys roughing it.

Dusty: Roughing it in a beautiful high rise.

Barbara: Full of ghosts and memories.

Dusty: I can't do anything about missing her.

Barbara: I think you're wrong about that.

Dusty: Well, I don't know if I want to even hear about it.

Barbara: Yeah. You know, why don't you let me take him.

Dusty: No, no, no, it's okay. I got to get him to bed.

Barbara: No, no, no, let me take him.

Dusty: It's all right.

Barbara: You get out and do something for yourself, okay? All right?

Dusty: It's no good without Jen.

Barbara: It doesn't have to be good. It just has to be something. Just get out. Hear some music. Take in a movie. Something that takes you out of yourself. Go to al's, get a burger. Have a malt and make some small talk. Just anything that's not about Jennifer. Do it for Johnny. He doesn't need a father who's all about just him. No child needs an obsessive parent.

Dusty: You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?

Barbara: Not a thing. Come on. Let me take him. Put him back in his crib where he belongs. And you go out there in the world where you belong.

Dusty: He's got a new tooth.

Barbara: I know a little bit about baby teeth. Come on, big boy. Go on. Get out of here.

Lucy: I know how ill you are and how concerned Luke is, but I draw the line at doctor/patient confidentiality.

Damian: I see.

Lucy: If you wanted me to see those files, you would have given them to me.

Damian: You disappoint me, Lucy.

Lucy: Because I wasn't snooping?

Damian: A dying man has nothing to hide.

Lucy: Are you saying you wanted me to see those files?

Damian: Let's just say I would have taken it as proof of your concern and growing friendship.

Lucy: But you're way too smart to be so obvious. No, if you were relying on my natural curiosity or my affection for you, you would have hidden the file better.

Damian: Yeah? Why would I do that?

Lucy: A test. To see if I think you're worth the trouble.

Damian: And am I?

Lucy: You don't have to ask.

Damian: Neither do you. So please. Not as a professional courtesy. But as a trusted friend. Take a look. Tell me if I'm receiving the proper treatment.

Lucy: I'd be happy to do anything I can to help.

Carly: You don't live here anymore. You don't get guest approval. You don't get to ask anyone to leave. In fact, the children aren't here. So, really, there's no reason for you to be here, either.

Simon: Carly, I really do want you to reconsider ending our business partnership.

Jack: Well, you quit? Good, good. Best decision you could have made.

Carly: Well, I don't need your opinion or your approval, Jack. I know how you feel about Simon.

Jack: I mean, come on, Simon. Even you have to admit you always been a little shady. The difference is now, you're rich and shady. No offense.

Simon: No, none taken, Jack. I like being rich.

Carly: The bottom line, Jack, is that I get to decide who goes. So, good-night. And the next time the alarms go off in this house, the security company will be calling me, not you. Simon, would have a seat please?

Simon: Over there?

Jack: I won't get to comfortable, Simon. The only reason she's asking you to stay is to stick it to me.

Carly: As usual, Jack, you've got it all wrong. My business dealings with Simon have nothing to do with you. They have to do with me. My survival. My independence. Me, starting my life over without you -- in other words, my business with Simon is no business of yours.

Jack: Jack Snyder. Yeah, okay. I'm on my way. I have to get back to work. I'll bring the kids back from Emma’s tomorrow.

Simon: Awkward. Carly, please. Don't quit.

Carly: I've really had more than enough for one night. So, could you please go, too?

Simon: So, Jack was right, maybe? Maybe, you were just using me to stick it to him. As he so delicately put it.

Carly: I'm not going to discuss Jack with you. I'm not gonna discuss anything with you.

Simon: All right, fine. So, since every subject is off-limits, let me just dive right in. I knew Katie and Mike were having dinner at the Lakeview tonight. And I did rig dinner with us to make her uncomfortable.

Carly: No kidding.

Simon: Exactly. Just another thing to add to my long list of childish behavior. But the truth is, Carly, and I can see it with you guys, we are both stuck on our exes. So, you come back to work for me, there is a bonus in it. We can help each other get over our hang-ups. I'll forget Katie, you'll forget Jack and we'll both be healthy, wealthy, and wise. What do you say?

Bartender: Hey, long time, no see, Mr. Donovan. What'll it be?

Dusty: Bourbon. Neat.

Bartender: Hey, I'm sorry to hear about your loss.

Dusty: Thank you, Russell.

Lucinda: Hey. Are you all right?

Damian: You concur with my experts in Malta. There is nothing more to be done.

Lucy: I'm beyond keeping you comfortable. I'm so sorry.

Damian: Thank you, Lucy.

Lucy: I wish I could offer a better prognosis.

Damian: There are unexpected benefits. Living each day as if it were my last, with Luke by my side. I find life amazingly rich.

Lucy: You know, now I am really too keyed-up to sleep. I think I'll go out for awhile.

Damian: You know, I doubt very much I will be able to sleep either. So, if you allow me? I'd love to go with you.

Will: Damn it, Jade! Are you nuts?

Jade: Sorry. I didn't mean to scare you. What are you doing here? I thought you'd be on your way to Gwen by now.

Will: I decided you were right. That I should find Maddie and make her see reason.

Jade: Why? You were the one who was so positive she's not gonna tell your wife we slept together.

Will: Well, I just wanted to make sure. So, have you seen her?

Jade: No.

Will: Neither have I. What happened to you?

[Jade is all wet]

Jade: I tripped and I fell.

Will: You're a mess.

Jade: You're one to talk. You look like you got into a fight with a mud wrestler. What happened to you?

Will: Better question is, why are the cops here?

Margo: Gwen, how are you doing?

Gwen: I'm okay. Maddie?

Margo: How is she?

EMT: Her vitals are good.

Margo: What about these cuts?

EMT: They're superficial. I cleaned them up. She's not gonna need a stitch. I did give her some diazepam for the shakes.

Margo: Maddie? Honey, can you tell me what happened? Did you see who did this to you?

Maddie: No, it was too dark. I was running.

Margo: Running from your attacker?

Maddie: There was a knife -- and it was slashing down on me -- cutting me -- and I tried to fight -- get away, but he shoved me under the water. And I couldn't breathe.

Gwen: It's okay. You're safe. No one is gonna hurt you. Okay?

Margo: It's fine. It's all right. What happened next?

Maddie: Gwen -- Gwen, you pulled me out of the water.

Margo: You're doing fine. You're doing fine. Gwen, you want to tell me what you saw.

Gwen: Just Maddie shooting out of the water and I heard screaming. I heard shouting before, so I followed the voice down here.

Margo: Did you see any other cars in the area?

Gwen: Uh-uh. I came down past twin branches. I didn't see anything.

Margo: And no one leaving the scene.

Gwen: No, ma'am.

Margo: What were you doing out here so late?

Gwen: I was looking for Will and Jade.

[Maddie remembering]

Jade: And even though you don't deserve it, I'm never going to tell anybody that we slept together. I won't want to embarrass you.

Will: Are you gonna tell Gwen? Maddie!

Maddie: No!

Maddie: No!

Margo: What?

Coming up on "As the World Turns" --

Maddie: Gwen, I don't even know if it was the killer.

Gwen: What do you mean?

Maddie: It could have been someone else coming after me.

Dallas: Where did you two come from?

Simon: Now I have jet on the runaway, fueled and waiting. Champagne's on ice. I will only fly to the greatest city in the world. It's yours for the taking.

Jade: Beats me why the cops are here.

Will: Maybe we should check it out.

Jade: No, the way we look, they'd shoot us for swamp creatures.

Will: I'm serious.

Jade: No, you're scary. The cops aren't here on a picnic. There must be trouble.

Will: Well, that's what I want to find out.

Jade: That's what you want to stay away from.

Will: So, what are we supposed to do? Just wait here for the cops to find us. And what's our excuse? We're looking for nightcrawlers? Or the real reason, to find Maddie and stop her from telling.

Margo: Jade and Will. The mention of names seems to upset you.

Maddie: I'm really cold.

Margo: Well, come on. Stay with me for just a minute here. Please, just a minute. What is it about Will and Jade that's got you so scared?

Maddie: Nothing. Nothing.

Gwen: You sure?

Maddie: Gwen, I'd be dead if it wasn't for you. You saved my life. Thank you.

Margo: All right, come on, come on. Let's get back to the attacker.

Maddie: I told you. I don't even want to go. Please, I just -- I want to go home.

Margo: All right, all right, fine. You should -- you should go. I'm going to call Henry and Eve and have them meet us at the station.

Gwen: You need me for the ride along?

Margo: Yeah, I think Maddie would like that. And we need to get your statement.

Gwen: Sure. Come on, let's go.

Margo: Dallas, get back to me with anything you find out here. Send a team out into the woods. Call me with the minute you find anything.

Dallas: Okay.

Lucinda: You're not looking so hot, my friend.

Dusty: You only like me for my looks?

Lucinda: Well, I'm fickle and life's rough.

Dusty: Tell me about it.

Lucinda: Yeah, okay. I brought them. You asked for the papers formally dissolving Jennifer's company. That's it. What did you expect? A brass band?

Dusty: I don't know. I don't know what I was expecting.

Lucinda: Why don't you let me help you? I'll tell you what to expect. You thought this was going to help. Help you move on. And then you saw a girl with long, curly red hair. And it brought it all back.

Dusty: I'm not good at this moving on stuff.

Lucinda: Who is?

Dusty: I don't even know what I'm doing here. How's Lily?

Lucinda: Lily's just the same. No change. But hey, things could be a lot worse, right?

Dusty: How's the baby?

Lucinda: The baby's great. Healthy, happy. Home with Holden.

Dusty: Well, that's something. House full of kids. Isn't it?

Lucinda: Yeah, it's something. It's something that is threatened, too. Luke thinks he's going to Malta with that pseudo father of his. I won't -- I won't trust Damian farther than I can throw him.

Dusty: Real prince, huh?

Lucinda: No, he's a gangster. He's an elegant one, but he's still a gangster. He doesn't care whose life he disrupts. He's gonna to really mess with my family, I don't know what I'm gonna do.

Dusty: Sounds like he's already messed with your family. So, what are you gonna do about it?

[Lucinda laughs]

Damian: Lucy, tonight I feel like celebrating. Don't look at me like that. I know death is coming for me. But until it does, I plan to enjoy myself. Now, shall we?

Lucy: All right. But you should tell Luke that we're going first.

Damian: The boy is fast asleep. I'm sure.

Lucy: No, I saw his light on when I came down the stairs. Can you tell him?

Damian: All right. I'll be right down.

Lucy: Hey, Holden. It's me. I only have a minute. There's something off about Damian's medical records. They're just too perfect. It's like someone looked up a terminal illness and listed all the symptoms, the protocols, and the prognosis. No, I can't prove he's faking. I mean, textbook cases do exist, but this is just is too neat. I'm gonna see if I can get a little closer to Damian. Don't worry, I'll be careful. But we need to find out why he's lying or why he lied about this, and his reasons for needing Luke in Malta. I got to go.

Damian: Well, you were mistaken about Luke. He's sleeping like an angel. Ready to party?

Lucy: Can't wait.

Carly: What is it with you men?

Simon: Care to narrow that down a bit?

Carly: Yeah, sure. Your egos. And these assumptions you make. Like you assuming I'm playing you off Jack because I still have a thing for him.

Simon: Cuts a little bit close to the bone, does it?

Carly: God, you are impossible.

Simon: Not really. I mean, really, most women find me quite possible.

Carly: Simon, just leave Jack and Katie and any agendas you have out of this.

Simon: All right, fine. Jack, agendas, Katie, the weather, movies, that's all off-limits. That's fine. I'll tell you what. You tell me right now, you'll come back to work for me and I'm out the door. We'll call it a night.

Carly: I don't believe this.

Simon: You were having fun, weren't you? New job, new start. And the money was pretty damn good.

Carly: That is just so completely not the point.

Simon: Well, here is the point. Straight up. I need you on this project because I know you'll be brilliant. I need you to help me open doors that were otherwise would be slammed in my face.

Carly: Exactly.

Simon: Yeah, but wait. There's more. I need this job to be an unqualified success.

Carly: Why? Simon, you hit, like, the oil jackpot, didn't you? You're a millionaire --

Simon: Listen, money in the bank. So, what? That's boring.

Carly: I'd love to be bored like that.

Simon: You get what I'm saying, Carly. I know you do. I want something with my brand on it. Something that commands respect. Something to show for myself. To try to make all these people here, forget all my other misdeeds and misadventures. Oh, just by the by, I don't mind -- if you don't mind me asking, how many hits have you had on your interior design website? That many, huh? So, what's stopping you, Carly? Come on, go all in with me. Let's make every single person in this town sit up and take notice. Prove to everyone, Jack and Katie included, that we have got the stuff to make it on our own and who the hell needs them?

Carly: You know, I really have to hand it to you, Simon. You could sell hot sauce in hell.

Simon: Well, even the devil needs a little flavor. Come on, are we back on?

Carly: You know, you say the right things. But the problem is that -- you know, tonight, I promised my kids a mom night all to themselves. With movies, popcorn, and books. And then you called me, I dropped everything at the drop of a hat. And I left them with a babysitter that I don't even know. Just so you could parade me around in front of Katie and Mike who happen to be my friends. And Simon, I don't have any interest in being any part of hurting them --

Simon: You won’t.

Carly: Just, just let me finish. Okay? It's been difficult for me to admit what I've known in my heart all along. But this is it. Simon Frasier, you are nothing but trouble.

Simon: So, I'm just taking a wild stab in the dark here, I guess that business trip to New York’s off? [Carly laughs] No? Is my fly down or what?

Carly: Are you telling me that after that great, big, fat farce of a business meeting, the trip to New York was legit? You really need me to wow potential investors?

Simon: Yeah, see, yeah. All right, believe it or not. That bit was real. So, are we on?

Carly: No, no, we are definitely off.

Simon: Come on, come with me. We'll take New York by storm.

Carly: No, no. That answer is definitely no.

Simon: Listen, you'll have those hotshots eating out of your hand. Then afterwards, we'll celebrate our success. We'll go to the best restaurants. We'll drink the finest wines. Katie, Mike, and Jack will be miles away and best of all, you and I will be having fun. Which you know, if you ask my opinion, but I think we did establish that you needed a little bit of this. Fun --

Carly: You were right. I didn't ask your opinion.

Simon: I heard Jack say the kids are still with Emma. Now I have jet on the runaway, fueled and waiting. Champagne's on ice. Come on, a moonlit flight to the greatest city in the world. It's yours for the taking.

Carly: Simon, have a safe trip.

Simon: Wow, I really did blow it, didn't I? Well, I am sorry.

Carly: Good-bye.

Simon: Well, it's a shame. It is a shame. We could have made quite a formidable team.

Carly: Yeah, you're right. I think we could have.

Lucinda: Now, Holden and I have been working in tandem, to try to check Damian. But that in itself, has its unique hazards.

Dusty: Like what? What hazards?

Lucinda: Well, speak of the devil.

Dusty: Lucy's with Damian?

Lucinda: You don't want to know. Well, fine company you're keeping young lady.

Lucy: I'm being followed by my grandmother?

Lucinda: You are going to follow me, dear. You are going to follow me right out of this place and into my car and home!

Lucy: I moved out. It's obvious you have no respect for me or my opinions.

Damian: Oh, this is your kind of place. Do you want to join us for --?

Lucinda: Why don't you to stop all this nonsense! Stop it! Stop the nonsense and come home where you belong!

Lucy: I already found a place to live. You can have my mail forwarded to Damian’s.

Lucinda: Oh, you cannot be serious, Dear.

Lucy: I like it there. I've been made to feel welcome. Would you excuse us, Grandmother? We are going to play pool.

Lucinda: Well, since my business is completed, I'm out of here.

Dusty: What's going on? Hey!

Lucy: Sorry about that?

Damian: Lucinda? I adore her. She's like grand opera in the old tradition.

Lucy: I have a confession to make.

Damian: Tell me my child.

Lucy: I don't know how to play this game.

Damian: I have a feeling you'll catch on quite quickly.

Lucy: Show me?

Damian: It'll be my pleasure. All right, lean into the table. Let me be your teacher. Right. Yes, relax into me. Okay. And now you strike the ball, with the cue. All right.

Margo: Henry, Eve, could I have a few moments alone with Maddie?

Eve: I hope we can count on you to treat her better than you have in the past.

Margo: I'm gonna be very careful with her. I promise you.

Henry: Thank you. Come on, come on.

Margo: Honey, here, I brought you some hot cocoa. You can just -- you can have it later, okay? Why don't we just pick up where we left off? You want to try as much as you can to describe your attacker to me? Was he tall? Short? Heavy? Thin? Facial hair?

Maddie: No, I -- I told you, I don't even know. I couldn't even tell if it was a man or a woman.

Margo: All right, that's fine, that's fine. Can you describe to me what your attacker was wearing?

Maddie: Why do you keep calling him an attacker? He's a killer. He tried to kill me.

Margo: And thank God he didn't succeed. All right, Honey, just talk to me. Let's go back to the clothing.

Maddie: Gloves. I just saw gloves.

Margo: That's good. What color?

Maddie: Dark. And I -- I guess I saw a sweatshirt. Pants. All dark. I'm sorry.

Margo: No, no, it's okay.

Maddie: I'm sorry.

Margo: Its okay, it's okay. You're remembering, it's good.

Maddie: All I remember is the killer coming after me and coming after me and the knife stabbing at me and stabbing at me over and over again.

Margo: It's all right, it's all right, it's all right.

Gwen: Is it okay if I come in?

Margo: Yeah, sure.

Maddie: Can I go home now?

Margo: No, no, not yet. You just relax.

Gwen: Hey. Here, take that.

Maddie: All I remember is the water and someone trying to hold me down. And I couldn't even tell Margo anything that helps.

Gwen: It's okay if you didn't get a good look at the killer. The police are gonna --

Maddie: Gwen, I don't even know if it was the killer -- the same psycho that killed Lia or Nate.

Gwen: What do you mean?

Maddie: I just -- I don't know. I think it was somebody else coming after me.

Henry: Now that Maddie was viciously attacked, you know what we've known all along -- she is not a serial killer.

Eve: We'd like to take her home now.

Margo: I'd really like to detain Maddie for a while longer.

Henry: Detain? Margo --

Eve: This is outrageous. She is a victim here.

Margo: I won't keep her long, I promise. I just want to give her some time to collect her thoughts. And I'm gonna check with CSU, and then I need to ask her a few more questions.

Jack: What was that all about? You're holding Maddie Coleman?

Margo: You know what? I gotta talk with Dallas about the crime scene and then I can tell you more.

Dallas: Where did you two come from?

Will: The woods. What's going on?

Dallas: Watch your step. This is a crime scene.

Jade: What happened?

Dallas: Maddie Coleman was attacked here tonight.

Jade: Oh, my God.

Will: Is she okay?

Dallas: A little shaken up, but she sustained some cuts inflicted by a knife.

Jade: The slasher?

Dallas: That's one possibility. Your wife found Maddie in the water, hysterical.

Will: Is Gwen okay?

Dallas: Look, she's fine.

Will: Okay, so where are they now?

Dallas: At the station.

Jade: When did this happen?

Dallas: At least an hour ago. Look, did any of you hear or see anything?

Jade: No.

Will: No, nothing.

Dallas: Okay, I'm gonna need you guys to come down to the station and give a statement.

Jade: Yes, first thing in the morning.

Dallas: No, now works for me. Unless you've got a problem with that.

Gwen: Maddie, of course it was the slasher. Look at your arms, who else could it have been?

Maddie: Someone who wants me to keep my mouth shut.

Gwen: Like who?

Maddie: What were you doing in the woods anyway?

Gwen: What?

Maddie: Why were you looking for Will and Jade?

Gwen: I was actually just looking more for Will.

Maddie: Why?

Gwen: It was something Will's mom said. It sounds girly paranoid now -- she was warning me about Jade, how she might make a move on Will. What does that have to do with what's going on?

Maddie: I think one of them tried to kill me because of their secret.

Gwen: One of who? Maddie, who are you talking about?

Maddie: Will and Jade.

Lucy: You know, I hate to sound like a quitter, but I don't think pool is my game.

Damian: What are you talking about? You did great! Don't be so hard on yourself. Besides, it takes time to find what you're really good at. And you, sweet Lucy, you have nothing but time.

Lucy: How soon are you planning to take Luke back to Malta?

Damian: The arrangements are being made. Within the week.

Lucy: Does it have to be so soon?

Damian: Why do you ask? Is it too much to hope that you will miss me?

Lucy: Of course I will.

Damian: Lucy, I want you to know that you are welcome to stay at Fairwinds for as long as you like.

Lucy: I'm not worried about that.

Damian: None of this is easy for me. I hate separating Luke from his family right now. At first I forbade it and Luke insisted on coming home with me.

Lucy: Well, you share a very special bond.

Damian: You understand that?

Lucy: Of course I do. But, if you don't mind my asking, why did you wait to tell Luke how sick you are?

Damian: If I had my way, he never would have found out until it was over.

Lucy: But why? I mean, you two are so close. If you would have told him, say, at the beginning of summer, you could have taken the trip to Malta then and had so much more time together.

Damian: And if I told you earlier, perhaps you and I could have had some time together as well.

Lucy: We're together now. Why ask for more? I need a refill.

Damian: I'll take care of it right away.

Lucy: No, no, no. I insist, this round's on me.

Damian: All right then.

Dusty: I got a question for you. What are you doing hanging out with a sleazy guy like Damian Grimaldi?

Simon: Ren, I'm ready whenever you're cleared for takeoff. And I'm sorry to report, I will be flying solo tonight.

Jade: Tell me this is not happening.

Will: Where's Gwen? I want to see my wife.

Dallas: Look, wait here, all right? Hey, I found those two out by the crime scene. I brought them in for questioning.

Margo: You think they know anything?

Dallas: Not to hear them tell it.

Margo: Did you find anything out there?

Dallas: A few scraps of Maddie’s clothes. Nothing to really help us ID the slasher.

Jack: You're working something here, Margo. What is it?

Margo: Maddie's wounds were superficial. And there's no real evidence at the crime scene other than Maddie’s own torn clothes. And she claims to have this hazy recollection of her attacker. And Gwen Munson didn't see anyone. So, given all that, how can I let her go, Jack?

Jack: So, obviously, you're thinking --

Margo: Well, maybe in order to keep us from tagging her for the other two murders, she's made herself the victim.

Jack: You really think she did this herself?

Margo: Can't rule it out.

Gwen: Look, Maddie, with everything that went down tonight, it's no wonder you're confused. But you can't actually believe that Will or Jade tried to kill you.

Maddie: I don't know, I don't -- I don't know. I -- it's all mixed up in my head. I saw them.

Gwen: Well, yeah --

Maddie: And I saw them before I was attacked.

Gwen: Okay, but what do they have to do with whoever attacked you?

Maddie: I heard them. I heard them talking. And they wanted me to keep my mouth shut.

Gwen: About what?
