Simon: What are you doing?

Mike: Sanding down that joint.

Simon: I must say, it does look great.

Mike: Carly called for high gloss finish, so it has to be perfect.

Simon: Well, it does look perfect. Now take it down.

Mike: Excuse me?

Simon: Yeah, yeah, no, I'll need you to rip it down by the time the painters come in tomorrow morning. You and Katie didn't have any plans, did you?

Nancy: That looks awful.

Katie: I'm trying to get pregnant.

Nancy: We used to do something different.

Katie: Well, I'm trying to increase my odds of getting pregnant. These vitamins and this drink together have tons of folic acid, zinc, selenium --

Nancy: Did you ever try lingerie?

Katie: I will try anything -- when the time is right.

Nancy: Wasted -- wasted -- wasted on the young.

Eve: Here you go. I had them put a little extra whipped cream on it for you. I thought we'd live it up a little.

Maddie: Eve, you don't look very happy. I know you're trying, but you don’t.

Eve: Maybe you should hear this from me instead of Detective Hughes, or Gwen.

Maddie: Hear what?

Eve: It's Casey.

Maddie: Nothing happened to him, right?

Eve: No, he's fine.

Maddie: Okay.

Eve: It's just -- in the hospital -- it seems he's not as ready to support you as he was.

Maddie: He thinks I tried to kill Gwen.

Eve: He's not sure that you didn’t. Maddie, say something. Get mad, yell --

Maddie: Why? I'm only getting what I deserve.

Eve: No, you have to stop talking like that and thinking like that. You are surrounded by people that love you, and think the world of you.

Maddie: Yeah, right.

Eve: You are. You have Henry and me and --

Maddie: Don't say it --

Eve: You are being ungrateful.

Maddie: How? I didn't ask him to come here. I don't want him here.

Eve: You need him, Maddie.

Maddie: No, I don't need him.

Eve: Yes, you do. Do you realize how much trouble you could be in? If the police charge you with murder, you're going to need all of us to fight this. Henry, me --

Maddie: Don't talk to me about him. Not ever! Not ever again.

Henry: Can I get the usual, Clyde. And then keep them coming, please.

Louis: A peace offering.

Henry: Hey Clyde, cancel that order, will you? This used to be a nice place.

Louis: Henry, please. I made a mistake --

Henry: Really? How is that possible? You're infallible, you're all wise, you're all knowing --

Louis: Be mad at me, tell me off, I have it coming, but don't walk away -- for Maddie’s sake.

Carly: Oh, my God oh, my God, Gwen, are you all right? Did he hurt you?

Gwen: I really don't want to talk about it.

Carly: You don't? All right, I understand. Oh, ouch, I'm so sorry.

Gwen: Please?

Carly: Right. Okay, will you just -- you just got attacked by a serial killer, but why would you want to talk about that? Right, thing's happen.

Gwen: Yeah, that's right. Things happen.

Carly: Gwen, what is it?

Gwen: Nothing. Uh, it's just that Will and I split up. I lost him --

Carly: Oh, Gwen.

Gwen: Yeah, I lost him to Jade.

Jade: Will?

Will: Gwen?

Jade: No, no, it's just me. I'm sorry to wake you. It's just I heard a noise outside, and I was wondering if you could go check in the parking lot. Please?

Will: Yup. Sure. No one there. Nobody.

Jade: Thank God you checked in here. I was scared to be alone. Sorry to wake you up. You must be exhausted. And cramped, why didn't you sleep in the bed?

Will: It was -- it was fine.

Jade: I slept great. But did you get up a couple of times?

Will: Yeah, I went outside to make a couple of calls.

Jade: To who? Gwen?

Will: Yeah.

Jade: Do you think that's such a good idea?

Will: Well, I think it's a good idea that she finds out why we're staying together, and then she finds out why.

Jade: Oh.

Will: What? What is it?

Jade: I just -- I didn't know you felt that way. I ran into Gwen at Java, and -- I mean, I kind of told her about us.

Louis: Just have that martini. Give me just that much time to make this right.

Henry: That's my problem though, isn't it, Louis? I hide from life behind those martinis, and I just sip away and watch Maddie self-destruct.

Louis: You can throw everything I said back in my face. I'll take it. I deserve it. But we have to get through this because Maddie needs all of our help.

Henry: Clyde, un-cancel that martini, will you? And something non-alcoholic and flavorless for my friend here.

Louis: I -- I've been very hard on you.

Henry: Ya think?

Louis: Last night, when you suggested that I might have hurt Maddie -- inside, I just went crazy.

Henry: Aw.

Louis: But afterwards, thinking about it, it made me realize how you must have felt when I took you to task for Maddie.

Henry: Oh, Louis, here. To people who still say took you to task.

Louis: I would never hurt her, Henry, ever. I was just trying to tell her I wanted to help her. Just the situation, her attitude, the passive aggression, it's all so frustrating. I was just trying to get her to sit still long enough to listen to me. But I made it worse, and I know it. I'm sorry.

Henry: Ah, hell. It's okay.

Louis: No, it's not, Henry. I feel like the reason I may have been so aggressive with you is because -- I feel responsible for what happened to her. For her sneaking off to that frat party. I should have been paying more attention.

Henry: Let's just blame the guys that hurt her. And may they burn in hell.

Louis: Right.

Henry: Right, right. Anyway, before we get to all swept up in this familial warmth -- just one more thing. Never put your hands on my sister again. Got it?

Eve: Honey, we do understand how horrible this time has been for you. But can't you see that Louis is just trying to help you? Maddie, he didn't have to do the things that he did. All the wonderful and kind things he's done. Not many men would take that kind of interest in their wife's sister.

Maddie: I don't --

Eve: You can't even look at me, Honey. Maddie, if Louis crossed the line with you in some --

Maddie: No. Just -- I know that he wants to help. I know that, but --

Eve: Then why won't you just talk to him?

Maddie: Can't you talk to him for me? Just tell him -- tell him that I appreciate everything that he's done. But it's not worth it. I'm a lost cause.

Eve: When you talk like that, Honey -- Louis doesn't think that -- Maddie. Maddie?

Katie: Yes! It's elevated. Let's see, August, September, October -- Taurus! I love Taurus -- Taurus men, I love Taurus men. Oh, no, what if it's a girl, Nancy, then she'll be a Taurus woman, which means she will be an obstinate -- no, no, she will be my little girl, with Mike's eyes.

Nancy: Honey, do you know that old song? Let's make all the stops along the way?

Katie: I got to go, Nancy. It's tonight.

Nancy: You're so happy, you shine. Don't rush this time. Make sure you enjoy every lovely moment.

Katie: Nancy, you are so easy to talk to. Thanks.

Nancy: Good. Good, I made her open up.

Simon: I'm really sorry about this, Mike. I really am.

Mike: No problem.

Simon: It's not that you didn't do a good job. I mean, it looks fantastic.

Mike: I know.

Simon: You know, it's just that Carly went to one of those design houses in New York City, and she just -- she decided on a whole different look for the place. That's all.

Mike: A designer changing her mind. What a surprise.

Simon: I appreciate how understanding you are being, Michael.

Mike: It's not my money she wasted.

Simon: Hey, oh, it's just really late notice. I mean, I would have come by earlier, I just got sidetracked with the investors.

Mike: All right, I know how that goes. You have the new plans?

Simon: First thing tomorrow morning.

Mike: Right.

Simon: So, you don't mind ripping down what you've already done?

Mike: No. Sure.

Simon: I hope I didn't stomp on any plans you might have. I would hate for you to be in bad words with Katie.

Mike: Katie knows not to count on anything when I'm working on a project. Right, do you have anything else? I want to get started.

Simon: Man, I really am sorry. I mean, God, it does look so good.

Mike: Well, not for long. I think you may want to take off.

Simon: No, I'm not in a hurry.

Mike: Well, that's just it. It's going to get a little bit loud.

[A board clatters to the ground]

Will: I can't believe you, I can't believe you did that --

Jade: I'm sorry. I didn't think it was a big deal.

Will: Not a big deal? You know what she's going to think. Now, I've got to go find her and I got explain things.

Jade: What was I supposed to do? Act like that there was something to hide? And Gwen, of all people, should understand that I'm scared of being alone. I mean, look at the way she's with Casey. They're practically attached at the hip.

Will: They were together?

Jade: Well, yeah. I mean, until she gave me the third degree about you.

Will: What were they doing? What was going on?

Jade: Oh, come on, Will, don't do this to yourself.

Will: Tell me what was going on.

Jade: Look, she's just grateful. He saved her from getting killed. I wasn't going to tell you.

Will: Okay, you have to go.

Jade: Will -- Will listen, you are going to be fine in your own room. All right, its 30 seconds down the hall. No, I can’t. When you told me I could stay here, I gave it up. I've got to save every dime. Why are you looking at me like that?

Will: Because I'm wondering what actually happened last night. And how much you told Gwen about us.

Jade: You know what? I've taken a lot of flak in the last week, and since you and I are guilty of the exact same crime, I don't want to take any from you. Now, if it's too much to ask, I'm going to go take shower. Okay? And you know, I really wish you would believe I didn't want to make things worse for you.

Gwen: So, the whole time the three of us were staying here -- I mean, Carly, she lived with us. And they kept that secret from me.

Carly: Well, maybe Will -- he felt awful about what he did and didn't want to tell because he didn't want to hurt you.

Gwen: But you know what's worse than lying, is going over all that time in my head. And trying to remember how they looked at each other -- and how she looked at me. And if she was feeling sorry for me, or if she was laughing at me --

Carly: Come on, don't do that to yourself. This is bad enough as it is. Don't make it worse.

Gwen: I can't -- I can't -- I can't stop my head, I can't stop thinking, I can't shut it off. And I tell myself, okay, you know, it was a one night stand. It was one time, and I try to believe that.

Carly: And you don't?

Gwen: You know what? If it was me, and I had a one night stand, and I wanted to keep it a one night stand, I would not agree to the standee playing house with us.

Carly: I see your point.

Gwen: And now, every time I turn around, they're together. I mean, he was with her the night I was attacked, and -- oh, this is the really good part. Last night, I found out that they are both living at the Wagon Wheel. Which is fantastic.

Carly: And how did you find that out, exactly?

Gwen: Jade.

Carly: Well, my, my. I think I better run upstairs and be sure that Jade hasn't stolen my old play book.

Gwen: What do you mean?

Carly: Gwen, I'm not saying that Will isn't a real jerk for what he did, and he does deserve a very long, and very rich, and painful, long punishment -- but I don't think you should take Jade at face value.

Gwen: So, you think that she's playing me?

Carly: Well, it really works out well for her, if you and Will are broken up, doesn't it? Well, I think you ought to go down to the Wagon Wheel and evaluate things for yourself.

[Saw squealing]

Mike: How many times do I have to tell you, don't do that. Don't sneak up on someone with a power saw.

Katie: I'm sorry. You scared me.

Mike: That's like the first rule of construction, Baby. I can tell you horrible stories --

Katie: Okay, no, no, no. You are going to have to stop lecturing me on the safety rules of construction because you and I are going to have sex right now.

Mike: We are?

Katie: Mmm-hmm, so if I say I'm really, really, really, really sorry for breaking that cardinal rule, can you just drop the subject?

Mike: Yeah.

Katie: You look good dirty.

Mike: You look good, period. Do you want to go home?

Katie: No.

Mike: I was hoping you would say that. You know, sometimes you have the best ideas.

Gwen: You make it sound easy, like I just, you know, drive over there, and I go, "Hey, how's it going?"

Carly: No, I don't mean to make it sound easy --

Gwen: I just feel like it's giving in, like --

Carly: Like what?

Gwen: Like, like it scares me. Like I'm going to get hurt again.

Carly: Well, Gwen, that's a definite possibility.

Gwen: Gee, Carly, thanks for the advice. Maybe I should schedule a root canal while I'm at it.

Carly: Come on, Gwen, there's always a chance of being hurt when you're fighting for something that you really want. When you're fighting for something that you really love.

Gwen: But if I go over there, and they're not just both staying there, but they're together. I don't think that I want to know. And I'm sure that I don't want to see it.

Carly: I know.

Gwen: I mean, how would you feel if you saw Jack with someone else? [Carly remembering] Carly?

Carly: Well, that's different. Jack and I are different because we are completely over, over, over. Whereas you and Will, you still have a chance if you want it.

Gwen: Will slept with someone else and he's still with her. You don't think that's over?

Carly: It's only over if you want it to be. Gwen, you can make the choice to forgive him for what he's done. If you want to. You just have to decide if there's a part of you that wants to.

Gwen: Well, part of me also wants to eat entire quart of ice cream for dinner, but that doesn't mean that's a good idea.

Carly: I'm not saying you should go over there right now and forgive him right this minute. But you should go, and find out the facts. Find out if Jade's reports are accurate. This is your marriage, you know? You are calling shots, not her.

Gwen: I know. And she's lied about everything to everyone and he knows that. And I'm shocked that he can be that stupid.

Carly: Why? He's a man. Come on, go over there and find out what the hell's going on.

Gwen: I think that I have to. I don't want to, but, yeah, I have to.

Eve: Jack.

Jack: Hey! Do you mind?

Eve: No, go ahead.

Jack: Great.

Eve: Sorry, I was a million miles away.

Jack: Yeah, I can tell. You're not enjoying your latte here. Whatever you got there, are you?

Eve: Yeah, not so much. So, how's your arm? I was worried about you in the hospital last night.

Jack: Oh, it's no big deal. It's getting me out of Phys. Ed.

Eve: You wouldn't say it hurt if it was killing you, would you?

Jack: Probably not.

Eve: Well, I don't blame you for not wanting to. It seems like every time we see each other, all we do is talk about -- you know, it was really good seeing you, Jack. And I really hope your arm feels better soon. But I should probably get going.

Jack: Wait a second, hold on a second. You know, being a expert detective that I am, I can tell it's not the latte that you're worried about.

Eve: You could tell, huh?

Jack: Yeah, three guesses. And I get them all right, then you stay and we talk, deal?

Eve: Okay, deal.

Jack: You're worried about Maddie.

Eve: All right, that shouldn't even count, but yes.

Jack: She was just here.

Eve: Did you see her leave?

Jack: Her name's on this cup, so --

Eve: Oh, yeah, clever.

Jack: That's why they pay me the meaty bucks.

Eve: So, what's guess number three?

Jack: She left in a hurry.

Eve: How did you know?

Jack: Her cup's mostly full, so -- what happened?

Eve: I tried to talk to Maddie. I went slowly, chose my words carefully -- and she just ran away from me.

Jack: What'd you say?

Eve: Louis. All I had to do is mention my husband's name. Lately, just talking about him freaks Maddie out.

Jack: Why?

Eve: It doesn't make sense because they've always been close. But now, it's as if Maddie is spooked by him, even when he's not there.

Maddie: Hello? [Maddie lets out a sigh of relief]

Louis: Hello, Maddie.

Will: Gwen, hi. This is great.

Gwen: Yeah. I'm not so sure about that.

Will: I was just going to come look for you. Because Jade told me what she told you last night.

Gwen: So you were off to do damage control?

Will: Look, she was just scared, all right? I swear. She was really scared and that's all it was.

Gwen: Maybe that's all it was to you.

Will: Huh?

Gwen: Look, the reason I'm here is -- the only reason I'm here is that Carly said that maybe Jade was making things up. Or putting her own particular spin on things. So this is what I want to know. You weren't staying together, right? I mean, you had your own rooms, right?

Jade: Will, did you see where I put my robe?

Coming up on "As the World Turns" --

Will: Sometimes I have a hard time understanding why you can't get past what I did when you did the same thing with Casey.

Louis: Just tell me why you don't want to be with me.

Maddie: You know why.

Simon: I saw Katie, oh with Mike, doing it.

Mike: I'm the luckiest guy in the world.

Jade: Gwen, I didn't know that you were there.

Gwen: Oh, really?

Jade: You have to know, this isn't what it looks like, so don't jump to any conclusions.

Will: Jade, stay out of this. Nothing happened.

Gwen: Oh no, something happened.

Will: She's just scared, all right? And I swear to you I slept on the floor. She wanted somebody else in the room.

Gwen: And Jade always gets what she wants, right?

Will: I know you're mad right now --

Gwen: Gosh, you're so perceptive --

Will: Gwen --

Gwen: Of course I'm mad! I'm your wife. And you're staying in a motel with some naked woman. It was a stupid idea to come here!

Will: But I can explain, all right?

Gwen: You can always explain. Maybe you should stop doing things that need so much explaining.

Will: She doesn't mean anything to me.

Gwen: Are you really as clueless as you seem? I mean, you keep saying that you want me back. That you want me to forgive you.

Will: I do.

Gwen: I mean, even if nothing happened, meaning, I guess, that you didn't have sex with her, did it even occur to you that rooming with her, that being her white knight, that being at her freaking beck and call isn't exactly a the best strategy to win me back?

Will: Gwen, I'm sorry.

Gwen: No. Let me try to be clear to you. What's going on between us or not going on between us just doesn't have to do with the fact that you slept with her, it also has to do with the fact that I don't seem to matter to you very much.

Will: You can't say that! That's not true. You know -- I love you!

Gwen: If you love me, then maybe you would ask yourself once, just once, how is this going to make Gwen feel? Because it sure doesn't feel like you ever, ever do.

Carly: Hey, guys. That sweet cartoon musical is at the drive-in. So you get blankets and pillows and I'll pop the popcorn, okay?

[Doorbell rings]

Simon: Hey.

Carly: Oh, hi.

Simon: Bad time?

Carly: Well, probably. Because I hate to redo my work and that's probably what you want, right?

Simon: No, no, no, it's got nothing to do with your work. Your work's great. Your work's fine.

Carly: That's never stopped you before.

Simon: Maybe I just want to talk.

Carly: Talk to me? About what?

Simon: Well, you never did tell me what happened with Jack when you went to the hospital to play nurse.

Carly: Nothing. Nothing happened. You know, I didn't want to talk about it last night and I definitely don't want to talk about it now. So do you have anything about business that you want to discuss with me?

Simon: Not exactly, no.

Carly: Okay. Okay, well, it was nice to see you. And I'll see you tomorrow at work, then.

Simon: All right.

Carly: Okay?

Simon: Hey, listen, do you want to get dinner? Look, I'm starving. You got to eat too, right? Dinner.

Carly: No, no, no, I can’t. I'm going to the drive-in with the kids.

Simon: I haven't been in years. Sounds like fun. I'll come with you.

[Carly laughing]

Carly: Simon. Two hours in a small car with squirming kids watching barnyard animals sing and dance and teach tolerance.

Simon: So why are you going to take them? Why are you going?

Carly: Loving my children. I happen to love them and I owe them because of all the work I've been doing. But for you, for someone like you, there's absolutely no reason in the world that you should even consider such a thing.

Simon: You're sure? Honestly? Because it really might take my mind off -- I want to just --

Carly: What? What is it?

Simon: All right. I saw Katie. With Mike. Doing it.

Eve: You're a police detective and Maddie’s a suspect in these killings --

Jack: At the moment, I'm just Jack. You're Eve. And Maddie’s just your kid sister. Okay? So why do you think Maddie’s frightened of your husband?

Eve: I didn't say that. At least I didn't mean to.

Jack: You can't bring him up without Maddie getting upset. Why? Eve -- okay, we can drop it. But if Maddie’s involved in another incident --

Eve: I guess the detective's back.

Jack: If something's going on with your sister, you can't ignore it and tell it to go away. Don't you want to help her?

Eve: Now you sound like Louis. Except you're being kind when he says it --

Jack: What?

Eve: Louis and I have a complicated marriage. I mean, maybe they all are.

Jack: There's no maybe about it.

Eve: But whatever problems we had, Louis was always warm and paternal with Maddie. In fact, I always thought he would make a really good father.

Jack: Thought? Past tense?

Eve: Ever since we got here, Louis has been -- strange. He came down so hard on Maddie’s boyfriend.

Jack: Casey Hughes?

Eve: Yeah, and he's been overbearing with Maddie. And last night, he even got violent with Henry.

Jack: What did he do?

Eve: You know, I told you that Maddie’s afraid of him. She's not the only one. I am, too.

Maddie: When I came in, I yelled for somebody and nobody answered, so I --

Louis: I guess I didn't hear you. I was too busy wrapping this for you. I'm trying to make amends. I got some vodka for Henry and this for you.

Maddie: Thank you.

Louis: Maddie, if Henry and I made up, can't we? Aren't you going to open it? I saw it this morning. It's the same movie poster you had in your room in Chicago. It's your favorite movie, right?

[When Maddie opens up the roll, it’s the movie poster she saw when she was raped]

Maddie: Take it back, I don't want it.

Louis: Maddie --

Maddie: I don't want anything from you, okay. Just go away! Just leave me alone!

Will: I've made mistakes. And this could have been a mistake --

Gwen: It could have been?

Will: It was a mistake. You're right. Because I stopped thinking about you. And I was thinking about how scared Jade was.

Gwen: Oh, yeah. She looked terrified just now in that towel.

Will: I made a mistake. Just like you have. All right?

Gwen: Excuse me?

Will: But you get past them. You know, you forgive mistakes so that you have a chance of making things right. But the important things --

Gwen: And my mistake was?

Will: You know, sometimes I have a hard time understanding why you can't get past what I did when you did the same thing. With Casey.

Gwen: I slept with Casey and that's like you sleeping with Jade? How?

Will: Because it was in the heat of the moment.

Gwen: Ah, the heat of my moment didn't break somebody else's heart, because I wasn't married. I hadn't promised myself. And I didn't think that I was betraying you because I didn't even know you!

Will: But look at you and Casey now. After everything, you forgave him. You even spent last night with him. Just the way Jade and I did because we're friends!

Gwen: Are you listening to anything at all? I give up, I give up. It's like you're more concerned about winning the debate than fixing what's wrong.

Will: No, I wish I could do that! I would do anything to get you back. You know what? You're just mad at me and you're taking things out on me right now. Look, okay, I'm sorry. I didn't mean that. This is hard!

Gwen: Yeah, this is really hard.

Will: So just tell me what I have to do, because I'll do anything. I already told Jade she had to leave. That's why she was in the shower, 'cause she's leaving.

Gwen: Oh, come on, listen to us, Will. Listen to the way that we're talking to each other.

Will: I know, we're mad and we're tired. And if we could just have a few minutes alone without anybody butting in --

Gwen: No, Will. This doesn't have to do with anybody else. It doesn't have to do with Jade or Casey or your mom or enough money or a place to live. It's us. It is just us. And it's over.

Will: Don't say that!

Gwen: You ever notice how people only go "don't say that" when you're telling the truth? Good-bye, Will.

Eve: I should have seen -- we have all been in a state of reaction and I am singling Louis out. And we have all been reeling and not acting like ourselves. And I brought him here. I'm the one who asked him to deal with Maddie when she is clearly out of control. And this has got to be a really frustrating time for Louis.

Jack: Okay, so you were wrong. You're not a bit worried about Louis? With Maddie or you.

Eve: I really shouldn't have said anything.

Jack: We both know you had to. I just have one more question.

Eve: What?

Jack: Its one thing to tell your pal Jack about being afraid of your husband, but it's another thing entirely to tell Detective Snyder. Who do you want me to be here, Eve?

Dallas: Hey, dispatch told me you were here.

Margo: Yeah, you know, I tracked down that paramedic who treated Maddie after the attack at the pond.

Dallas: Anything?

Margo: No. Nothing concrete. But this girl's stories, they just don't hang together. [Dallas huffs] What's that huff about?

Dallas: Well, look, I never thought her stories hung together, either. So I went to Chicago. I checked out that fraternity where she said she was raped. You're not going to believe this.

Louis: Maddie, you didn't used to be like this. You used to say "thank you" when someone gave you a present.

Maddie: Thank you.

Louis: You didn't say that like you meant it.

Maddie: I have a headache. I'm just going to get some aspirin.

Louis: Maddie, you're trying to get away from me.

Maddie: No --

Louis: And I don't understand that. We used to be pals. We had a very special relationship.

Maddie: I really don't feel well, though.

Louis: You can't fool me, Maddie. I mean, come on --

Voice: Come on. It'll be fun, fun, fun.

Louis: We always had fun, didn't we? Why are you trying to get away? Why are you treating me like this?

Voice: Come on. It'll be fun. Fun, fun, fun. Don't make trouble. Fun, fun. You can't tell. Understand? You can't tell.

Louis: Just tell me why you don't want to be with me?

Maddie: You know why!

[Gwen crying]

Jade: I heard a lot of that. I'm sorry. I feel like this is all my fault. You're like this really good friend to me. And then this happens. I just -- I can't tell you how sorry I am. I'm just really sorry.

Katie: Did I ever tell you how nice it is to be making a baby with someone so sexy yet such good father material.

Mike: It's a fine line, but I walk it.

[Katie laughing]

Katie: You know, I read somewhere that people name their kids after where they were conceived.

Mike: Tarp Kasnoff?

Katie: Or Tarpina.

Mike: Glad you didn't find me by the dumpster. It's kinda nice thinking about it, isn't it?

Katie: I never asked you. Do you want a boy or a girl?

Mike: I don't care. A girl would be good. She'd look like you.

Katie: Boy or a girl, I want them to be just like you.

Mike: Look, Katie --

Katie: What?

Mike: It's just, what we're doing. This is important. This is going to change our whole lives.

Katie: Are you having second thoughts?

Mike: No, no. It's just if your basal temperature is elevated, I think it's our solemn duty to do whatever we can to maximize this opportunity?

Katie: You're so bad! Bad, but right.

Mike: I know. I'm the luckiest guy in the world.

Carly: So you saw Mike and Katie -- going at it?

Simon: Going at it, yeah. Like rabbits.

Carly: Aw, that's too bad. I'm sorry. It must have been rough.

Simon: It must have been rough? That's your response?

Carly: What's wrong with that response?

Simon: Nothing, that's fair enough. I just half expected three snide comments at my expense followed by a tough "get over it."

Carly: I'm not like that. Okay, I'm like that. But --

Simon: But?

Carly: I saw Jack with a woman.

Simon: Eve? Oh no, not you, too. Come on. They weren't -- were they doing it?

Carly: No! Don't say that. Please, don't ever say that. No, no. But they were together. They were at the hospital and she was touching him. And she was flushed and giggly. So that's why I went and had a drink with you last night and that's why I'm being so beautifully compassionate now.

Simon: Well, I appreciate that. I really do. Thank you. And I'm sorry. She was flushed?

Carly: Yeah.

Simon: Well anyway, that's it for me. I mean, I am so glad I got that off my chest. Thank you.

Carly: Okay. Oh, so, hey. Simon, you want to come to that drive-in with us?

Simon: Huh?

Carly: The drive-in. You know, there's nothing like three very loud children and dancing roosters and a couple of chili dogs to get your mind off your problems. That is, if you think you can take it.

Simon: Oh, yeah. No, you had me at "dancing roosters."

Carly: Oh, Simon. This is going to be a night you'll never forget.

Eve: I was starting to think of you as just Jack, like you said.

Jack: Okay.

Eve: And nothing I told you means that Maddie did anything.

Jack: You're right. You're right. Which is why I don't have to put my detective hat on. Because Maddie being afraid of Louis, or not, that's not a crime, right? Louis acting weird isn't a crime. You being worried.

Eve: Thank you.

Jack: Unless someone's safety is at stake. If that's the case --

Eve: No, no. Nothing I told you was about the case. Not really.

Jack: Okay. I just wanted to make sure in case there's something else you wanted to tell me about what's happening.

Eve: No. No, there's nothing more. But I understand if you want me to stop reaching out to you -- if it makes you feel uncomfortable.

Jack: No, not at all. I'm fine with it, believe me. As a matter of fact, I could use a friend myself.

Margo: What am I not going to believe?

Dallas: Well, look, it seemed pretty clear that it was getting raped at that frat party that sent Maddie off track, right?

Margo: Right.

Dallas: So I set out to find anything I could. I mean, I went to the university. I've talked to the dean of campus life. It turns out there was no party.

Margo: Well, why would the dean know if there was a party?

Dallas: It turns out the fraternity had a string of violations and the school made them cancel it.

Margo: Oh, man, so this whole story starts out with a big, fat lie.

Dallas: There was no party.

Margo: So there was no rape?

Louis: You act like I'm going to hurt you. I'd never hurt you, Maddie. You know that. How could I hurt someone who's so special to me? So smart and pretty and special. [Louis locks the front door] That's how it should be. No interruptions. And just the two of us.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Dusty: Don't let me keep you. You meeting someone?

Lucy: Actually, I was looking for you.

Carly: Maybe it's not such a good idea if you come.

Simon: I promise you, by the time these kids are home, upstairs in bed, you'll not be sorry.

Maddie: Don't touch me! You come near me again, I swear I will kill you!
