Gwen: Will? Hey, what's wrong? Who called? Was it your mom?
Casey: That's the same look I get when my mom --
Casey: Why didn't she call me?
Will: She called about my dad. He's dead, Gwen. She said my father's dead.
Jack: Here is that paperwork you had me do. Just so you know, don't get too comfortable bossing the rest of us around. Because when Hal gets back from his special assignment, you will have zero -- clout.
Margo: He's gone, Jack. Hal is gone.
Dusty: It's a fundraiser. It's for a good cause. What's the harm?
Barbara: Craig's the harm, that's what.
Dusty: He can raise money.
Barbara: We're talking about Craig Montgomery!
Dusty: Then we let him walk. It's under control.
Barbara: Where Craig is concerned, it's never under control. You know that. Okay, okay, I guess we'll have Hal just place men at the event then.
Dusty: No, he's not doing anything illegal.
Barbara: Not that we know of.
Craig: You have my word, Lucy. I'm trying to do what's right.
Lucy: Daddy, usually the only person it's right for is you.
Craig: Thanks for the vote of confidence. I look forward to proving you wrong.
Meg: Meeting over already?
Lucy: Not if you count the sidebars.
Meg: I thought you changed your mind about starting a foundation.
Lucy: So he said, but now he's offered to underwrite the gala to benefit the hospital. The guest of honor includes a prince, complete with a set of crown jewels. Isn't that generous?
Meg: You're kidding.
Craig: We'll be raising money that the hospital can use in any way they see fit. I hope you'll come, Meg. The prince is very charming. Even Dusty is on board, unless he let Barbara talk him out of it.
Dusty: No. Barbara's on board, too.
Paul: Barbara's on board with what?
Barbara: In lieu of establishing a research fund in your sister's name, Craig has generously offered to underwrite a benefit for the hospital, and we're invited.
Paul: Have you lost your mind?
Barbara: Paul --
Paul: The only reason that Craig is involved with anything is so he can keep his fingers in everybody's business.
Dusty: No, he bows out once it's over.
Paul: He's never bowed out of anything.
Craig: Well, that's interesting, coming from a man who bowed out of an engagement with Emily at the wrong end of a gun.
Paul: I want no part of this moneymaking scheme if you're involved. In fact, Craig, if you don't quit this sideshow, I'm going to do everything I can to try and stop it.
Dusty: It's not your decision. This party is going to happen with or without you.
Simon: Carly wouldn't go to the cops.
Spirro: Maybe she didn't like the number my boys did on your ribcage.
Simon: Her ex is a cop. She's in and out of the police station all the time. It has nothing to do with you.
Spirro: So why was I hauled in? To talk about the weather? Snyder's got it in for me. But the next time he leans on me, I lean on your girl.
Simon: Your business is with me, not her. Just stay away from her.
Spirro: Put her on a short leash, Frasier, or you and your lady friend will leave our next party in a body bag built for two.
Carly: I hope you didn't need to use that credit card today.
Katie: Carly, what are you doing here?
Carly: Why is it your business?
Katie: Because I'd hate to see you to get caught up in something crazy.
Carly: You mean caught up with Simon.
Katie: You said it was over.
Carly: Well, it was. And now it's not.
Katie: Oh, come on, you know that Simon lies like it's his job. I mean, I'm not trying to tell you how to run your life --
Carly: Yes, right, so I see.
Katie: But I thought you were going to walk away before things got worse.
Carly: Worse? Worse than what? And Katie, if you've walked away from Simon, you certainly haven't gotten very far, have you?
Katie: Listen, I know better than anyone that Simon can make things seem new and exciting, but you always turn a corner with him, and they're not fun anymore, and they're not exciting, they're dangerous.
Carly: Ahh, well, thank you. Thank you for the warning.
Katie: Unless things have already gone too far.
Carly: Too far?
Katie: You know what I mean.
Carly: Hmm. Well, you know something? It's my turn to ask a question, okay? Does Mike know you're here?
Katie: Mike is just as worried about you as I am. You know he doesn't trust Simon.
Carly: Come on, Katie. You're not afraid that I'm going to end up in the river. You're afraid that I'm the reason it's finally over between you and a man you're not even supposed to care about anymore. But you do.
Gwen: Will, what happened?
Will: I don't know. She said something about a robbery, and I just -- I didn't really understand. It was just words.
Gwen: It's okay. We'll find out later. It's just --I don't understand how this has happened.
Casey: No, I -- I don't believe it, either.
Maddie: Will, I'm so sorry.
Casey: But wait. Why would my mom call and tell you on the phone?
Will: She was afraid that I would hear it on the news. She was really devastated.
Casey: Yeah, she and Hal were close for a long time.
Will: You should probably go down to the station and see if she needs anything.
Gwen: Yeah. That's a good idea. We're going to be okay. You guys go.
Casey: All right. Hey, anything, all right? Anything, man, just ask.
Will: All right, thanks.
Maddie: I'll call, okay?
Gwen: Are you okay?
Will: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. I'm okay. I'm okay.
Gwen: Does your mom know?
Will: No, I told Margo that I wanted to be the one to tell her.
Gwen: Okay, then we should go.
Will: Oh, God. She's barely over losing Jen. I don't know -- how am I supposed to tell her about Dad?
Gwen: I don't know. I'll come with you, I mean, if that's what you want.
Will: Thanks. I don't think I could get through this alone. I really wish he knew.
Gwen: Knew what?
Will: That we were back together. I think he'd have been really happy for us.
Gwen: I think you're right. Come on, we should find your mom.
Will: Wait, I just -- I need -- I just need -- I need a second.
Margo: There was a robbery in progress, so he just went on instinct. Our Hal. It was a gang working over a 15-year-old kid. He got between the kid and the bullet, and then the gang took off. They just left him there to die. By the time the D.C. Police got there, he was already gone.
Jack: I don't believe it.
Margo: Why didn't he just keep walking?
Jack: Because he's -- because he's Hal. Because the little kid was in trouble.
Margo: Oh, Baby, I'm so glad you're here.
Tom: Hey, Margo.
Margo: I'm sorry, I didn't want to leave a message like that, but I couldn't get through to you.
Tom: I'm here now, Baby.
Carly: This is going to a very weird place, Katie.
Katie: I just want to know that you're not in trouble!
Carly: You want to know if I'm having sex with Simon! So why don't you just ask me? And don't talk in circles and don't come sneaking in here looking for some kind of evidence. What exactly are you looking for, anyway?
Katie: That's not really an answer.
Carly: You want an answer? Here's your answer. I am not sleeping with Simon, okay? A few things got in the way, like an electrical tower that crashed into our building and a few other things that I'd rather not discuss at the present time, if you don't mind.
Katie: So you mean that you would, like you'd want to?
Carly: Do you want to, Katie?
Katie: I'm married.
Carly: That explains the visit.
Katie: I wouldn't expect you to understand.
Carly: I do. I do understand. I know how hard it is to let go. When I thought that Jack was seeing someone else, I got this feeling. It's hard to explain it. It's not hurt, and it's not jealousy. It's just that -- that something's wrong, and you can't pin it down. And all you know is that you feel left behind when you've already moved on anyway.
Katie: That's it, that's it.
Carly: You don't want Simon, Katie. You don't really. You just don't want anybody else to have him.
Simon: All right. Carly's working for me, Spirro, not the cops.
Spirro: I don't want to have to look for wires on that broad, understand?
Simon: All right, Spirro, you watch too many movies, my friend. She didn't talk.
Spirro: The way I figure it, my unexpected trip to the police station just doubled your interest.
Simon: What are you -- okay, you are officially insane, because there is no way I can pay that kind of money back.
Spirro: You keep your girlfriend away from the cops, or I take my pound of flesh any way I can get it. You got me?
Paul: I can't figure out why you did a 180 on this, Dusty. If I didn't know better, I would think you were working with Craig just to get back at me.
Dusty: No. I don't give a damn about you.
Barbara: Could we have a moment here, please? Listen to me, okay? Dusty's not going to give Craig an inch. He'll be all over him. There's no way that Craig is going to be involved in any decisions concerning the money.
Paul: Are you sure about that?
Paul: I hope you're right.
Craig: I'm so sorry I've caused such tension in your family.
Barbara: Shut up, Craig.
Craig: Ah, there's the Barbara I remember.
Will: Mom, we need to talk.
Barbara: Hi, Honey. What's wrong?
Gwen: Craig, could you excuse us?
Craig: Yeah. Barbara, we're through here, right?
Will: Could you please --
Barbara: We've been through for a long time.
Will: Get the hell out of here, okay?
Craig: Fine job of parenting, too. Congratulations, by the way.
Barbara: Honey, what's wrong?
Will: Can we go in here?
Barbara: Well, yeah -- you're scaring me. Did something happen?
Will: Yeah. It's Dad.
Craig: I'll leave you three alone.
Will: Come on, Mom.
Barbara: No, no.
Will: He was breaking up a robbery.
Gwen: That's all that they know right now.
Barbara: When you kids were little, every time that he left the house, I would think that sooner or later, someone was going to come knocking, or the phone would ring, and they would say, "I'm sorry Ms. Ryan, I'm so sorry." And I would play those words over and over in my head, and I knew I had to prepare myself because some day, just in case --
Will: Mom, you know, being a cop was the most important thing in Dad's life.
Barbara: No, it wasn't you were the most important thing in his life, you and your brothers and your sisters. You children were the most important to him.
Gwen: I'm really sorry, Barbara.
Barbara: Thank you, Honey.
Gwen: He was a special man, and he was really good to me.
Barbara: I just don't know what we're going to do without him. What are we all gonna do, Honey?
Carly: So where does Mike fit into all of this? I thought that you guys were planning on starting a family. You said that you were very excited about that.
Katie: I am. I love Mike.
Carly: But you still love Simon, too?
Katie: I don't know, it's just not that simple.
Carly: Well, you better make it simple. You're having trouble getting over your first love. But if you don't, you could lose your forever love. You better decide if whatever feelings you have left for Simon are worth losing Mike. [Cell phone ringing] Hello? Yes, what's up? What? I'm on my way.
Katie: What's wrong?
Carly: I gotta go.
Katie: Carly, wait!
Jack: This place is too damn quiet.
Casey: Yeah, I keep expecting Hal to come in and slap me on the shoulder.
Tom: I can still hear that voice.
Margo: Yeah, honey and gravel.
Jack: More gravel than honey, really.
Margo: What are we doing? Hal would not want us to be doing this. He would want us to be laughing and joking and drinking, and, you know, talking about him over a beer.
Jack: That is the truth.
Tom: Well, then, pick a place. We're there.
Casey: You did say over a cold beer, right?
Margo: Knock it off. Knock it off.
Maddie: What was Hal's favorite place?
Tom: Okay, we're there.
Margo: All right, let's go to Yo’s. [Whistling] Everybody! We're taking this down to Yo’s. We're going to send the chief out in style. All right? We'll leave a couple of uniforms here, and we'll rotate them out and bring them down later.
Jack: That's a good idea.
Tom: All right, the first round's on me.
Casey: Dad, I want to call Will and leave him a message to let him now we're gonna be there.
Margo: I think that's a great idea. Okay. You coming?
Jack: Yeah, I'll be there. I just want to make sure things are running here smoothly, that's all.
Margo: That's the way Hal would have wanted it.
Jack: I won't be long.
Hal: You didn't fall for that old initiation routine, did you?
Margo: Oh, hook, line and sinker. But he really can sing like Elvis.
Hal: Yeah. Good, now that we've all bonded, can we get back to work?
Jack: Yes, sir.
Hal: Thank you.
Lucy: Now, will you fill me in?
Dusty: On what?
Lucy: On you suddenly being okay with my father underwriting the fundraiser.
Dusty: Well, the hospital needs cash. What's to understand? [Cell phone ringing] It's Barbara. Hello? When? Are you okay? Yeah, I'll meet you there. Don't drive yourself, okay?
Lucy: What did my father pull now?
Dusty: It's not your father. It's Jennifer’s.
Meg: What did your mother say?
Paul: She's still in shock. I've got to find Will. I gotta make sure he's okay.
Meg: Do you want me to come with you?
Emily: Oh, hey, will you do me a favor? Lisa was not in her office. Can you give this to her? It's an invitation to her grandson's Halloween parade.
Bartender: You got it.
Emily: Thank you.
Paul: She doesn't know.
Meg: Paul, I don't know if it's your job. Maybe you should wait.
Paul: I can't just pretend nothing's wrong.
Paul: Em --
Paul: I need to talk to you.
Emily: You know, I can’t. I'm busy. Sorry, I've got so many invitations to drop off. I've got my mom and Hal. I think he's due back any day, so -- he goes to Daniel’s parade --
Paul: Yeah. Hal's why I need to talk to you.
Emily: About what?
Paul: Can we sit down?
Announcer: Coming up on "As the World Turns" --
Simon: Forget it. I'll go and find her myself. But please, Katie, will you get out of here and not come back? Please?
Jack: I gotta drop in at Yo’s.
Carly: Would you mind some company?
Emily: Oh, Hal, no. No! No, not Hal! Not my Hal! He wouldn't do that. He wouldn't do that. He wouldn't leave me.
Paul: Em --
Emily: He wouldn't leave me. No, he wouldn't leave me. Oh, God!
Paul: I'm sorry.
Emily: He loved me. You know, sometimes I think he's the only man who ever really loved me.
Henry: Emily. Emily, what's wrong?
Emily: Oh, Henry! Hal! Oh, my Hal!
Henry: What? What?
Paul: Hal passed away.
Meg: I called Jack. Hal's family and friends are meeting at Yo’s.
Paul: I don't think we should go.
Emily: It's okay. It's okay.
Henry: I'll stay with her.
Meg: What do you think?
Paul: Yeah, let's go.
Emily: Just don't be a coward, okay? Before life got crazy, he loved you, too. So just go.
Meg: Barbara is gonna need you there.
Paul: Let's go.
Henry: Sit down. Come here. Sit down. Sit down, I'm gonna get you something, all right?
Hal: It's okay. I'll wait. But you knew that, didn't you? No matter what I said, I've always been waiting. I won't leave you, Honey.
Henry: If you can forget how much you hate me, I'll drive you to Yo’s.
Emily: No, thanks. I'm just gonna drive myself home.
Henry: No, no, no, no. No, you're not. You're going to Yo’s, and you're going to say good-bye to a guy you loved.
Emily: Oh, my God, I can’t. I can’t. Not after what I did to him, Henry. I can’t.
Henry: After what you did? Do you think any of that matters now? You loved him, and he's gone. So you're going to Yo’s. You're going to Yo’s. I'm going to go with you. And you can start hating me again tomorrow.
Katie: Are you crazy? You could have hurt me.
Simon: All right, what are you doing here? Where's Carly?
Katie: She left.
Katie: Yeah, she ran out of here like the place was on fire.
Katie: She got a call from someone.
Simon: Okay, from who?
Katie: I don't know!
Simon: Okay, can you please just think? Was she scared? Was she upset?
Katie: Yeah, she was really upset.
Simon: Was the place like this when you got here? Was it? All right, you know what? Forget it. I'll go and find her myself. But please, Katie, will you get out of here, and not come back? Please?
[Cell phone ringing]
Katie: What do you want, Craig?
Craig: Is that any way to talk to your brother? You've been avoiding me ever since I got back, Katie.
Katie: I have nothing to say to you.
Craig: Well, this isn't about me. Margo's at Yo’s. I think you should join her.
Katie: I'm not really in the mood to go to a bar right now. Thanks.
Craig: Katie, your sister just lost one of her best friends. She needs you. Just go, don't argue.
[Cell phone ringing]
Jack: Go ahead, take it.
Carly: It can wait. Everything can wait.
Hal: And we have to make them understand what we believe. That good men, men like Jack Snyder, they never leave their families behind. Not even in death.
Carly: I was just thinking about how he held me together when I thought I'd lost you.
Jack: He held a lot of us together. Does Parker know?
Carly: No. No, not yet. I came straight here.
Jack: Okay, I'd like to tell him. Together, if that's okay?
Carly: Yeah, yeah. I'd like that. I'm so worried about him. He just lost Jennifer, and now his dad.
Jack: Yeah, maybe we could give him another hour or so before his world comes crashing in on him again.
Carly: Good idea.
Jack: I gotta drop in at Yo’s.
Carly: Would you mind some company?
Jack: No -- no, I'd really like that.
Dallas: Hey, Jack, you got a sec?
Jack: It's gonna have to wait.
Jessica: Jack, Tom just called me about Hal. I can't believe it.
Jack: Yeah, I know, we're all in shock.
Dallas: I wish I had known him longer.
Jack: You would have learned a lot from him.
Dallas: Well, hey, I'm the rookie, right? Why don't you guys go to Yo’s? I'll hold down the fort.
Jessica: No, listen, Jack, if it's okay with you, I really need Dallas to be with me.
Jack: Dallas, we've got plenty of coverage. Please, go with Jess.
Jessica: So we'll meet you guys there?
Carly: Yeah, we're right behind you.
Dallas: I'll hold onto this until tomorrow.
Jack: No, I'll take that now.
Dallas: All right. I'll see you at Yo’s, all right?
Simon: Carly, it's me again. I've been looking all over town for you. Where are you? Could you please, please call me as soon as you get this message? I just want to know that you're all right. I'll be on my cell. Thank you.
Spirro: You keep your girlfriend away from the cops, or I take my pound of flesh anyway I can get it. You got me?
Dusty: How you holding up?
Barbara: It's too much. Our family can't take any more heartache.
Dusty: Our family's strong. Will and Gwen, Johnny, you and me. We're strong. We're here for each other.
Barbara: Thank you.
Dusty: Jen's in good company now. She loved her father like nobody else.
Barbara: And he was a good dad to her.
Dusty: I gotta go, if you're okay.
Barbara: Oh, please don't go because of Paul.
Dusty: No, I'm not. I'm not. I promise, I'll be back.
Barbara: Okay. Oh, I'm so glad you came.
Meg: Did anyone call Adam or Nikki?
Barbara: I think Margo's trying to reach them.
Paul: I used to joke about Hal having more kids than a rock star.
Barbara: That's true. Women loved Hal.
Will: I'm really glad you came.
Will: Yeah. I'm never gonna forget how you and Dad put our family back together. For a while there, me and Daniel and Parker in that house, it was very good.
Emily: That was your dad, Honey. I never quite learned how to hold onto a good thing.
Henry: Come on, I'll get you a drink.
Gwen: Wow, Will. Look around. Your dad touched all of these people.
Will: Yeah, I know he did. He was a great guy. I just wish I hadn't spent so much time blaming him for things that went wrong in my life. Because I can't remember the last time I thanked him for everything he did right.
Hal: Hey! Hey, my boy's home! He's home where he belongs. Oh, you don't know how long I've prayed for this day.
Gwen: Hey, he was your dad. He didn't need to be thanked.
Jessica: Were you able to reach Adam?
Margo: Well, I got his answering machine and told him to call me. I got a hold of Nikki, though. She's on a Foreign Service mission overseas.
Jessica: The poor kid.
Margo: Oh, man, she just burst into tears. All I could do was try and make sure she wasn't alone. I didn't know what else to do.
Tom: Hey, I'm sure that she has people that she can talk to.
Margo: I wish she could make it here for the funeral.
Tom: Well, she's doing something that would make Hal proud. He was proud of his kids. He was a great dad and a damn good friend.
Tom: You're a good man, and I know you're Adam’s father.
Hal: The way I see it, we're both his father, Tom.
Katie: Hey, maybe you can lean on me for a change?
Margo: How did you find out?
Katie: Craig called. Don't worry, he's not gonna show up. He just thought that maybe we should be together.
Margo: I'm really glad you're here.
Emily: When we were married, after work, summer nights, we'd go out on the patio with a cold beer, watch Daniel and Parker out on the swing set. Just the two of us holding hands. We'd sit out there for hours. It was so simple and peaceful.
Hal: Emily Stewart -- how do I say this? Well, I guess on one knee, don't I? Emily Stewart, will you be my wife? Oh, I'm getting dirt on you, sorry.
Henry: Hey! Where'd you go?
Emily: To a happier time.
Henry: I'm gonna get us some beer, huh?
Kim: Honey, I'm so sorry.
Barbara: It just doesn't seem real, that's all.
Bob: You and Hal did some good things together. And you raised some wonderful kids.
Barbara: Yeah. I mean, for so many years, we just tried to be a family, stay strong for each other.
Hal: Barbara Ryan, will you marry me?
Barbara: The years just went by too fast.
Bob: I think we all feel the same way.
Jack: Hey, everybody, can I have your attention for a second, please? I'm sorry, just a minute. I'd like to ask for a moment of silence as we remember -- as we remember a great cop, and a great friend -- and a giant of a man.
Jack: Thanks. We all have our moments with Hal that will live in our hearts forever. And for me, I watched him with his kids, and it taught me patience, and it made me a better father. And I watched him at work -- right, Margo, guys? He made us better cops. He was like a father to me. Actually, I'm surprised he wasn't my father, seeing he was responsible for populating most of Oakdale. [Laughter] His joke. It's his joke. It's his joke. But his ex-wives are here. They can attest to it. Right, three of 'em? Seriously, you talked to the guy, and you knew he was listening. He was responsible for most of us keeping ourselves sane. He was the voice of reason when things seemed to spiral out of control, but he was that way with everybody. He reached out, and he touched so many lives. His friends, his family, his co-workers. Even a little kid he didn't even know is alive today -- because Hal was brave enough to reach out and touch his life. So I ask you to raise your glass. And -- to a guy we were lucky enough to know, and who we'll never forget. To Hal.
All: To Hal.
Dusty: Somebody thought you could use a special hug today.
Barbara: Oh, Honey, I know. I know, Honey. Thank you, Dusty. I think he wants you for a sec.
Carly: Did you find what you were looking for at the hotel?
Katie: That call you got, it was about Hal, wasn't it?
Carly: Everything's about Hal today.
Jack: Sandy just called. She's bringing Parker down to the station, so we should probably head out.
Carly: Oh, Jack, I'm dreading this.
Jack: We'll get through it, together.
Katie: Good luck.
Carly: Thank you.
Jack: Thanks. Hey, Will. If you need anything, I'm always here. Okay?
Will: Thanks, Jack. Thank you. I'm really glad Parker has Jack. He's way too young to lose our dad like this.
Barbara: You okay, Honey?
Will: I guess so.
Barbara: Could I talk to your wife for a second?
Will: Yeah. Hey.
Dusty: Rough day, huh?
Will: We've had too many rough days.
Dusty: You remember the day I asked you to be my best man?
Dusty: I meant what I said. We're brothers now.
Will: Thanks, Dusty. Thanks, man.
Simon: Hey, listen, I'm looking for Carly Snyder. Have you seen her? Don't worry about it.
Carly: I know it hurts, Baby. I know.
Jack: It's your dad's badge.
Parker: He was so brave.
Carly: Yes. Yes, he was. And his favorite thing in the world was spending time with you. Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when he took you to the movies, and you ate all that candy, and you ate all that popcorn?
Parker: Dad thought I'd get sick.
Carly: Yeah. Being with you is what he loved best. And he'd still be with you if he could. He loved you, Parker. And nothing can ever change that.
Jack: Parker, a long time ago, I told your dad that I could never take his place. But I also told him that I'd always look out for you. I love you, Buddy. Very, very much. And I want you to know that although I'm not your father, I will always, always be here for you. Come here.
On the next "As the World Turns" --
Emily: I'd worry about him.
Gwen: It's you and me against the world.
[Knocking at door]
Jade: Will, open up. It's me, Jade.
Simon: Why don't we pack up the kids and get out of Oakdale?
