Lily: Let's get you settled on the couch.
Jade: Thank you.
Lily: You have to stop saying that, okay?
Jade: I can't help it. You're being so nice to me. You're bringing me home after everything I did.
Lily: I promised my sister I would take care of you. I'm not crazy. You can make promises to people that are gone.
Jade: I guess so. It's just so weird, knowing you look just like my mom. Orphans always wonder what their mothers look like.
Lily: Jade --
Lily: You're my niece, and I promised I would take care of you, and I will. But I am not gonna forget what you did -- to me, to my family, to Gwen, to Will --
Jade: Long list.
Lily: Yeah, and when you start talking about being an orphan and dreaming of your mother's face, I don't melt. My back goes up, because I've been down that road already.
Jade: You don't pull any punches, do you?
Lily: You're family, and you always will be. But first -- first thing, you've got to learn what family really means.
Gwen: He wasn't my father, and I feel numb inside. All those gentle things that he used to say and do with that tough voice. He changed the way I thought about everything. You'll get through this, however you have to. Just tell me to talk or shut up or stay or go --
Will: Stay. Please, just stay. Talk.
Gwen: Okay. After we were married, I don't remember when I finally realized that I didn't have to be afraid of him. It just kind of happened. More than that, I could trust him. And not just because I was married to you, or I was special. Everybody could trust him.
Will: Yeah, he was always just there. Now he's not.
Gwen: I know.
Will: You know, I thought -- when Jade told me I was going to be a father, I was terrified. How was I supposed to do what he did? How did he make me feel like my life was gonna be okay after what I did?
Gwen: I'm gonna tell you something, and I'm not saying it to make you feel better, but it's because it's something that I really believe. I think that -- that you and your dad were so close --
Will: Right --
Gwen: Well, maybe you didn't get along all the time, but I think that you knew him so well that you're not going to lose him, that you'll know exactly what he'd say and do, even if he's not right here with you.
Will: I know what you mean. You know, he got me through one of the worst nightmares of my life. He'll get me through this. He'll get us through this.
Simon: Carly, can you please, please call me as soon as you get this message, okay? Please. Listen, guys, uh, sorry to bother you. I'm running kind of late. Did you come from Hal Munsonís funeral?
Cop: Yeah, it was over a little while ago.
Simon: Okay. Thank you. I'm sorry about what happened.
Carly: Emma says not to worry. The kids are happy at the farm.
Jack: You okay?
Carly: I'm just glad that Parker has J.J. and Sage to distract him, you know?
Jack: The funeral was hard on him and you.
Carly: Are you hungry? Or would you like something to drink? I'd be happy to get you something.
Jack: Carly --
Carly: You know, I don't even know if I have anything. Maybe I should just go to the grocery store, and I'll --
Carly: It's not fair, is it? It's just not fair.
Craig: I was looking for you.
Emily: I was at a funeral. Dock my pay.
Craig: I know. I was looking to make sure that you're okay.
Emily: I'm fine.
Craig: You've had a hell of a month.
Emily: Better than Halís.
Craig: Right. Here.
Emily: What's this?
Craig: I knew how hard this was gonna be on you, so I went ahead with the late edition.
Emily: Of course you did.
Craig: There's no surprises. I just inserted an article about the benefit.
Emily: Yeah. No surprises. Everybody in this town is knocked over because a wonderful, wonderful man is dead, and you use the opportunity to push your own agenda. Craig Montgomery, business as usual.
Craig: You approved the article. I just didn't want to bother you.
Emily: Yeah, you didn't want to upset my feelings. You know what? Don't worry about how I feel.
Craig: I do.
Emily: No, really. Donít. I'd worry about him.
Craig: Dusty. Hey! Hey, Slugger.
Dusty: Take him upstairs? He's ready for his nap.
Craig: I'm sorry if you're upset. I was just doing a little business here with Emily.
Dusty: Good timing. I'm sure she doesn't have her mind on anything else.
Craig: No, I was just trying -- well, there really isn't any point trying to explain anything to you, is there?
Dusty: Did you forget about the injunction? Or did you just choose to violate it?
Craig: No, no, no. I'm on my way out. I've got a lot of work to do. And I'm sorry if my timing was bad. I just -- this benefit means a lot to me, so sometimes I get a little single-minded, okay? Dusty.
Emily: He thinks he's a little single-minded? I swear, I think there was a time back in the early '90s where the man thought about somebody besides himself, maybe just once.
Dusty: He thinks about my son, all the time.
Emily: I think it was great that you brought Johnny to the funeral. Hal would have liked that very much.
Dusty: Johnny is gonna know what a great grandfather he had. He was a real hero.
Emily: What a friend he was. What a loyal friend.
Dusty: Emily, I need a favor. I need you to tell me what Craigís really up to.
Margo: Thanks, guys. I don't think I could've gotten through this without you.
Casey: You sure you don't want to come home with us?
Margo: No, no. When things like this happens, cops just -- they hang together. It's just what they do. What's this?
Cop: Surveillance request. You're senior officer now.
Margo: Oh, man. Well, life goes on, huh? You think without Hal here, the world's gonna stop. Well, it doesnít.
Gwen: Hey. I didn't know that you were scared of being a father.
Will: I wasnít. Until it looked like it was really gonna happen.
Gwen: We used to talk about adopting kids all the time, before all of this happened. You don't want kids anymore?
Will: That's not what I said. I just want to be a dad like the dad that I had, you know? I'm just not there yet.
Gwen: When -- when I thought that you and Jade were a done deal, I was talking to Carly, and she told me that I needed to focus on school and on my music and taking care of myself.
Will: Yeah, I want you to do that. I want to help you do that.
Gwen: Yeah, there's something that feels really good about that, you know, like laying the groundwork for the road up ahead. But we never talked about you. We just talked about me and what I was gonna do.
Will: All through the funeral, I just -- I keep thinking that -- I want my dad to still be proud of me --
Gwen: He was.
Will: Let me put it another way. I think it's time that I did something to make him proud of me. And now, I think I know where to start.
Lily: Family means you're always taken care of. There's always somebody on your side. And I know you never had that.
Jade: Well, I did with you and Holden. That's when I was lying about who I was. At least, I thought I was.
Lily: But you also have to understand, it's not a get out of jail free card. You have to be responsible. That means no lying.
Jade: I know.
Lily: You do know? It's not simple. For you, lying has been a way of life. Even when you don't have to lie, you're lying. You have to make a change. You have to turn over a new leaf. And that means no hounding Will anymore. It's self-destructive, literally.
Jade: Right. It's just --
Jade: It's just hard to walk away, when I owe him so much money.
Lily: He gave you money?
Jade: Well, he loaned it.
Lily: Conning someone is also another way of lying. You know that, right?
Jade: Yes, ma'am.
Lily: How much money?
Jade: Um, $3,000 from the trust fund.
Lily: Okay. I'll pay that off.
Jade: No --
Lily: Oh, I'm not doing that for you. Not to make it simple for you. I want you to cut all ties with Will. I don't want you to have any reason to have anything to do with him anymore.
Lily: Oh, hello.
Lucinda: Oh, what a surprise. What a tableau. Lily's writing a check for your wayward niece.
Lily: Don't start, Mother. Please.
Lucinda: What is the little darling's story now?
Jack: I'm gonna call the station. I'll tell them I can't come in.
Jack: It's no big deal.
Carly: No, no. Jack, I was a cop's wife for a long time. I know that it's important that you be there today. And besides, you know me. One big meltdown, and I'm back in the saddle, all right?
Jack: Okay, all right. Just you -- you call me, anytime, anyplace. And forget about trying to tough this out. Losing Hal -- that was a big deal, for all of us.
Carly: I'm so glad my kids have you. And I will call.
Jack: Okay. I better -- I better go.
Jack: Can I press my luck?
Carly: Don't you always?
Jack: Be careful. I don't want to butt into your life. I just want you to be careful.
Carly: I know.
Jack: And if Frasierís not involved with this loan shark, still, he's not a guy to be trusted.
Carly: Good thing you didn't butt in just then.
Jack: I just don't want to make you mad.
Carly: I'm not. It's fine. And I will be careful. And I will call. And I'm very grateful that you brought me home.
Jack: Don't worry about Parker, okay? I'll look after him tonight.
Carly: Hey, Jack. You take care, too. Promise.
Simon: Carly --
Lily: Talk about surprises. You jumping to conclusions when you have no idea what's going on.
Lucinda: Oh, that check is really for the hospital cancer foundation, and it's just coincidence that she's got her hand out.
Lily: She -- her name is Jade.
Lucinda: Jade, I hope I didn't offend you.
Jade: No, you didn't. And the check is not for me. You can make it out to Will, not me. And I'll give it to him, and it'll be over.
Lily: How about you mail it? Then you won't have to see him, and it'll still be over.
Lily: And the check is already made out to Will.
Lucinda: Dear --
Lily: Oh, boy.
Lucinda: I know you feel responsible for her.
Lily: I know you think I'm incompetent.
Lucinda: No, Dear.
Lily: Yes, you do.
Lucinda: I think you're recovering -- no -- from a major trauma, and you should concentrate on your health and your family.
Lily: Jade is my family.
Lucinda: No, Dear. She's a stray kitten that makes you feel better.
Lily: You know, your faith in me is so comforting.
Lucinda: But she's a kitten who's been proven a predator. And she's already played you once like a flute.
Lucinda: And now you're giving her a second go-round.
Lily: Maybe I should do it in a way that you can understand. This is none of your business.
Lucinda: Oh, okay. I'll keep my mouth shut.
Lucinda: And wait for the inevitable moment when I have to say I told you so.
Adam: There was a security problem, so we couldn't land, and they wouldn't even let me off the plane.
Margo: Oh, Adam, Adam, it's all right.
Adam: All right? No, I told them it's my father's funeral.
Margo: Come on, we're talking about Hal Munson. You think he wouldn't understand?
Adam: No, I know he would.
Adam: I just -- I just wanted to be with you.
Margo: Yeah, that's t most important thing is that you're here now.
Casey: I'm sorry, man.
Tom: Hey. You must be wiped out.
Tom: Why don't you go home, try to get some rest, okay?
Adam: I don't know.
Margo: Yeah, come on. I've got to stay here. You should go home. Maybe Casey'll take you home to get a shower and some sleep.
Casey: Yeah, 'cause you really do need a shower.
Adam: Oh, it's so good to be back.
Casey: Dad's right though, man. You look wiped. We should go.
Cop: Adam -- Jim Reynolds.
Adam: Oh, yeah, yeah. I remember you.
Cop: I just wanted you to know, it was an honor to serve with your father.
Adam: Thank you. Maybe -- maybe I should go home.
Margo: Yeah. I've got a picture of Hal and Adam and Fin. Adam's about 10 years old, and he's wearing Fin's hat, and it was taken right there.
Tom: Are you sure you can do this? Because Hal was not just another uniformed officer.
Margo: No, no. I can do this. It's my job. I can do it.
Tom: So you think you can y get some time off while Adamís home?
Margo: I don't really see how. I mean, you know, we just lost our chief. I can't bail now.
Tom: Sometimes it seems to me that these jobs just consume us no matter what happens.
Craig: Well, maybe I can be of help.
Emily: Dusty, it's not that I don't want to help you. Look, I know I owe you, but I have no idea what Craigís up to. I really donít.
Dusty: What's this?
Emily: An article he shoved on the front page. Something about this benefit he's doing.
Dusty: So Craig goes to prison and meets the Prince of Leonia.
Emily: I'm sure it's through Sierra.
Dusty: Not only is the guy coming to the party, he's outfitting his escort with real jewels from the crown.
Emily: Dusty, can we talk about this some other time? I don't know, fancy galas and -- it just doesn't seem important on a day like today.
Dusty: No, Emily, Emily, we have to talk about it now. It is important. It's about as important as it gets.
Will: I want to make him proud, you know? I want to face things. I'm gonna start by getting my GED.
Gwen: That makes me feel really, really good.
Will: I mean, he always acted like I deserved another chance. And I'm gonna prove him right.
Gwen: You know what I like about this? It's like we're going back to that point where we messed up, where we took the wrong path, and we're making a u-turn, and we're starting back on the right one.
Will: It's nice of you to say "we" messed up. It's not true, but it's nice.
Gwen: We didn't stick together. We won't do that again. It's you and me against the world.
[Knocking at door]
Jade: Will, open up. It's me, Jade.
Simon: Look, look, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you. I didn't mean to.
Carly: Well, then don't hide in the bushes and sneak up on me like that.
Simon: I don't have much time, and this is very important.
Carly: Is someone after you, Simon?
Simon: Look, I overheard what Jack just said about being careful. And he's right.
Carly: Oh, you're eavesdropping now?!
Simon: No, but I have the solution. I've still got that jet for a little longer. Why don't we pack up the kids and get out of Oakdale?
Coming up on "As the World Turns" --
Simon: There's no way in hell I'm gonna let you take the heat for this. No, I got you into this, I'm gonna get you out of it.
Tom: I just don't see how you could do anything.
Craig: I can offer you a job, at twice the pay for half the work.
Will: Jade, I'm not taking money from you.
Gwen: The hell you're not.
Simon: Carly? Did -- did you hear me?
Carly: Huh? No. No, I think I just -- I must have been hallucinating. 'Cause I could swear I just heard you say something like I should gather my children up and get on a private jet and fly away from Oakdale?
Simon: Uh-huh. Can we talk about this inside, please?
Carly: Someone is after you.
Simon: Not yet, but I just want to be safe.
Carly: Why? What is going on, Simon?
Simon: All right, you were right about everything. Spirro has doubled the interest, 'cause Jack dragged him into the station for questioning. There is no way -- no way I can sell enough units to cover that kind of payback. I'm circling the drain here.
Carly: Oh, I'm sorry.
Simon: But you know what? Just -- [Simon whispering] get on a plane, kids, get out of town. Just for a little bit, till things cool down.
Carly: You know what, Simon? It was actually sort of fun playing in your pretend world for awhile. But when you have kids, you can't stay there for very long. Parker's father just died, and he feels alone and abandoned. And it's my job to make sure that he feels connected, that he's around the people who love him.
Simon: I thought maybe just getting away --
Carly: Well, Simon, that's what you do. You get away. So, you go. You get away. I'll pack you a lunch.
Simon: Not without you. Spirro saw you coming out of the police station, so he thinks that you're involved with somehow paying him back. He might take it out on you.
Carly: Well, then I'll call Jack, and I'll get protection.
Simon: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, you're right, no. No more running away. There is no way in hell I'm gonna let you take the heat for this. No, I got you into this, I'm gonna get you out of it.
Tom: Craig, it's a bad time.
Margo: He's right, this is a very bad time.
Craig: I know, and I want to help. I want to feel like I'm a part of this family.
Margo: I don't think that there's anything that anyone can really do right now. We'll just -- just get through it.
Craig: Tom said -- your jobs. Margo, your job is gonna get twice as intense. And Tom's already overworked. I just want to take some of the pressure off.
Tom: I just don't see how you could do anything.
Craig: I can offer you a job, at twice the pay for half the work. So you can have the time to take care of my sister.
Bartender: All right. One draft, one ginger ale.
Bartender: No, no. It's all right, it's on the house. Your dad was one in a million.
Adam: I appreciate that.
Casey: I just wanted to say that growing up and having your brother have two fathers when you only had one was pretty weird, but I'm glad that I had Hal in my life. He's a hell of a guy, man. I'm really sorry.
Adam: Thank you. All right, I'm only gonna say this once. In L.A., I miss you.
Casey: Really? You know, I can see it. You must have been pretty lost without me, huh?
Adam: Rudderless. Oh, hey, I got that CD you sent me, the vocalist?
Casey: Really? Did you like her?
Adam: Actually, I was gonna say, I haven't listened to it yet, but I will. Who is she, anyway?
Casey: No one. Just your sister-in-law.
Lucinda: I don't want you to get hurt again, Dear. You're not very strong right now.
Lily: You're right. I'm not.
Lucinda: Oh, now, wait a minute. You never agree with me. What are you up to?
Lily: I'm weak. [Lucinda laughs] I'm fragile, so you have to help me. You've got to lend me a hand.
Lucinda: Oh, with her?
Lily: Yes. Do you know what a relief it would be if we could just have one civil conversation with my beloved niece?
Lucinda: No one knows but me how truly manipulative you are, Lily.
Lily: Well, you can't say I wasn't paying attention. [Both chuckle] Jade? Jade? Look, I know she's a liar, I know she's manipulative, I know she's all of those things, but she is family. Jade?
Lucinda: Where, oh where, can our little cat be? Oh where, oh where can she be?
Jade: Will, please open the door.
Will: I don't want to hide from her. It's not gonna end it. She's just gonna keep coming back.
Gwen: But how can she do this, Will? I mean, this is just -- it's wrong.
Jade: I know this is a horrible day. I just --
Will: I hope you understand, but I have to face her. She's got to see how much everything has changed.
Jade: All right, I'm sorry. I had something for you. I guess I'll mail it. [Door opening] Hey.
Will: What do you want?
Jade: First of all, I want to say I'm really sorry about your dad.
Jade: Wait, here.
Will: What's this?
Gwen: Another sonogram?
Jade: It's the money I owe you.
Will: Jade, I'm not taking money from you.
Gwen: The hell you're not.
Lily: She's gone.
Lucinda: Oh, Honey.
Lily: She just got out of the hospital. She shouldn't be running around town.
Lucinda: I know. One does worry when someone's just out of the hospital. Worry, they don't listen, they don't rest.
Lily: They don't throw in the towel. I'm not gonna do it. I know it's gonna be difficult with Jade, but I'm not giving up.
Lucinda: I know you're not.
Lily: When she gets home, go over the ground rules -- again, and again. Can I talk to you about this without you making me feel stupid for trying, please?
Lucinda: Of course, Darling.
Lily: Thank you.
Lucinda: Of course. Shoot.
Lily: All right, Jade has -- she has a good heart. She's not what you think she is. She's -- but she is very, very --
Lucinda: You think that you've gotten through to her, and then all of the sudden, you realize that she has been telling you what she thinks you want to hear.
Lily: You're very perceptive.
Lucinda: Ha, really? I'm not the intolerant, intolerable ogress? I'm just worried that you might get tired, Darling. I mean, she could exhaust you. This girl is what she is. That's what she is. These are her survival skills. She's not gonna give them up without a fight.
Lily: I guess I have to convince her that she can survive without them.
Lucinda: Good luck.
Lily: This is just like Rose. She never did ask for anything simple.
Gwen: You know, I didn't want to open the door, but Will said that we couldn't hide from you anymore, and he's right. Because you need to know that we're not afraid of you that and we're on to you. So you can do your whole little act -- "I want to give you the money back. I'm so pitiful" -- and we will take the money and still not feel sorry for you, because that's what you do, Jade. I mean, you take advantage of people who feel sorry for you.
Jade: That's not true. I --
Gwen: Will has a good heart, and you used it. And you know what? I know that you've had a hard life, but big deal. A lot of people have had hard lives, and they don't use it as an excuse. So as sweet as you talk and as sorry as you say you are, it still doesn't change the fact that you're just inherently not a good person. And I hope that someday, somebody makes you feel the way that you made me feel.
Will: Jade, I think maybe you should go.
Jade: Yeah. Uh, you guys take care.
Gwen: We will, Jade. We will.
Adam: How can Will be married? He's too young.
Casey: Yeah, I know that you think that life just stopped on a dime when you left here --
Adam: No, seriously. I'm not old enough to get married. Will is?
Casey: Dude, I know. I mean, it's not for everybody, but -- wait till you meet Gwen. I mean, Will's lucky to have her.
Adam: Seems like she's pretty lucky to have someone like you promoting her so hard.
Casey: You know, she deserves to have something good happen to her. You want another one? I just want to say I'm glad you're here, man. I hope you can stay for a while.
Adam: I think I will. As they say in L.A., I'm between gigs, and I want to be around some people who knew my dad.
Casey: That'll make Mom happy. And me, too.
Adam: Man, I'm fading. I think maybe we should head out.
Casey: Yeah, yeah. I'll get you home, get some rest. And then maybe, while you're in town, you can check out Crash. I deejay there, and Gwen, she'll be singing, so --
Adam: Sounds good.
Casey: And when I say she's good, I meant it.
Adam: Okay, I can't wait. Hey, thanks for saying what you did about my dad.
Casey: Sure, man.
Adam: So tell me, are we gonna play some tennis while we're in town, or you still suck as bad as you used to?
Margo: You want to offer Tom a job?
Craig: Tom just said --
Margo: We just -- we just buried Hal. And you're already in here with one of your schemes, one of your grand plans.
Craig: I know that the funeral was today. The comfort that Hal Munson gave me when I lost my son was enough in itself for me to admire the man. I didn't go to the funeral, pay my respects to his family because I knew it would upset them. It's a job offer, it's not a scheme. It's a solution to a problem. But nothing I say or do is enough for you. You just write me off, like everybody else in this town.
Tom: You know, maybe we could just talk about this later.
Margo: Maybe the fact that your own sister doesn't trust you ought to give you pause, Craig. Make you think twice about what you -- I can't do this right now.
Tom: I'll tell you what, just go for now, and later.
Craig: Tom, I just want to help. I just want to help my family, that's all. You see? She's closer to Jack than she is to me.
Tom: So, you really can't see the position that you've put her in?
Craig: And you can't see that I'm not trying to con you? Tom, I'm trying to help my family.
Dusty: I know Montgomery's up to something. He's going out of his way to provoke me.
Dusty: I think the reason he's here is Johnny.
Emily: Johnny? Johnny's yours. Craig can't do anything about that.
Dusty: Anything simple. Like I say, he's trying to provoke me. This benefit's all for publicity, all part of a plan to try to clean up his image.
Emily: Dusty, I want to help you. I do. I mean, I know, I owe you. I will never forget what you did for me. But I don't know what Craig is up to. He doesn't trust me. He uses me, like everyone else.
Dusty: So let's turn the tables. You're in a perfect position to observe and tell me what's up, so we can find out what his real agenda is.
Emily: You really think he's going after Johnny?
Dusty: I have to. I can't put my guard down for a second.
Emily: Okay. Okay. I'll help you out in any way I can.
[Simon clears his throat]
Simon: What are you staring at?
Carly: Well, when Simon Frasier say he's gonna stick around and shoulder responsibility, it gives one pause.
Simon: I don't even know why you would say that.
Carly: Well, you're famous for taking off when things get sticky. It's part of the adventure.
Simon: Well, it wouldn't be much of an adventure if anything happened to you.
Carly: Oh, come on. Sure it would. You charge a first-class ticket to Australia on someone else's credit card. You get on the plane, you relax. Lots of leg room, champagne, surrounded by rich suckers looking for investment opportunities. You'd forget about me before they served the entree.
Simon: Please. How can I forget about you?
Carly: Are you sure there's no way out of this fire? We'll fix up those apartments, we'll sell them really fast so we can pay off the loan.
Simon: Look, it was gonna be tight before. Now that the interest has been doubled, Carly, it's impossible. God, I hate reality.
Carly: Part of your charm is that you never let it affect you very much. Oh, Simon, on this sad, awful day, don't let me watch you give up. Be Simon. Expect the impossible. Think magically. I can't anymore.
Simon: I am so sorry about all of this.
Carly: It's okay. We had a few laughs anyway, didn't we? And who knows, maybe it's not completely over, you know? You are Simon Frasier. You'll come up with something. As a matter of fact, I'm gonna go and call the farm and check on the kids, and I'll give you a minute to come up with a plan.
Simon: Right. Yeah, just like that, my luck's gonna change. Bingo.
Gwen: I wish she really did have to pay for what she did, and not with some, you know, check from her rich aunt.
Will: Well, maybe now, if she has someone taking care of her, looking after her, then she'll calm down, and she won't be so --
Will: Yeah, that's not my favorite word.
Gwen: I'm sorry. It's just, I feel like she came to town, and she saw my life, and she said, "hey, that looks good. I'll take it."
Will: She did. But it's over. I mean, she played every card she has, and she lost.
Gwen: You know that, and I know that, but do you think she does?
Lily: Okay, let's get one thing straight. You leaving the room pretending to get an envelope and then sneaking out, that's also considered lying.
Jade: Yes, ma'am.
Lily: Oh, please, don't call me ma'am. That makes me -- what happened?
Jade: I did just what you told me not to do. I took the money to Will.
Lily: I see.
Jade: I wanted him -- them to know that I was sorry.
Jade: And they didn't want me there. And now you're mad at me. That was a really good move.
Lily: Looks like it was awful for you. I'm sorry.
Jade: Why are you being so nice to me? You told me not to do it.
Lily: I don't want you to be hurt. I don't want that.
Jade: Yeah, it's easier when you yell at me.
Lily: Well, you're gonna get both, so get used to that.
Jade: Off to a great start, aren't I?
Lily: It's gonna be difficult. You have to make a lot of changes.
Jade: What if I can't?
Lily: Then you can't be a part of this family.
Margo: Are you kidding? Every cop in that room is watching me to see how I'm gonna handle this, how I'm gonna treat him.
Jack: Margo, I don't think that's true.
Margo: Why today? It isn't hell enough that we have to go through this without Hal? Now I have to deal with my brother?
Jack: Not necessarily. Just ignore him.
Margo: Ignore him? He's underwriting a fund-raiser for some prince or duke or something, who's gonna have his bimbo du jour draped on his arm, dripping in priceless jewels. You know who's gonna handle security? Me. You know who's gonna handle Craig? Me.
Jack: Margo, you know, we need you to take over here right now, okay? So if there's a security detail, I'll handle it. I'll keep an eye on Craig, too.
Margo: Thanks. I'll take you up on that.
Jack: Good. That's how we're gonna get through this, Margo. We're gonna get through it together.
Simon: Carly? Carly, I'm gonna go.
Carly: No, wait just a second!
Simon: No, no, you know what? You were right. I'm gonna go back to work, make sure the model's finished.
Carly: Wha -- wait. Now you're gonna go and do the thing that you said was impossible?
Simon: You know what? You knocked some sense into me. Now, if I'm gonna go down, I'm gonna go down fighting.
Carly: Wow, this is a mood swing.
Simon: What can I say? You're inspirational. I'm gonna call you later.
Carly: Wait a minute. I don't understand this. Can you explain this to me? Just a minute ago, you were depressed and miserable. I had to make a phone call, I come back, and now you're like a motivational speaker or something.
Simon: It's just sometimes, the answer is right in front of us. We just gotta open our eyes.
Carly: And why did you steal my paper?
[Simon leaves and looks at the picture of Vienna showing her wear a tiara and a huge diamond necklace]
Simon: Hello, V. Long time, no see. Oh, I can so make this work.
On the next "As the World Turns" --
Carly: There's something in that paper you don't want me to see? Fork it over!
Katie: Is it possible that I'm still in love with Simon?
Craig: There was a reason that I bought you the gown.
Meg: Because Paul loves it when you decide to give me gifts?
Craig: No, this has nothing to do with Paul. It's about you, and me.
