Will: Do we have anymore cheese puffs?

Gwen: We finished those at 4:00 A.M.

Will: What about trail mix?

[Gwen laughs]

Gwen: 5:00 A.M.

Will: So what are we gonna have for breakfast?

Gwen: Acid indigestion? Hey, do you know what last night was?

Will: What? What was last night?

Gwen: It was my first official college all-nighter.

Will: Yeah, and you didn't even have to crack a book or throw up cheap beer.

Gwen: No, there was no point in trying to sleep.

Will: All right, well, you know what? Let's grab all our stuff and we'll go check out some of those studios we found online, and see if they're good enough for a rising star.

Gwen: Oh, come on. Do you know how many kids make vanity CDs that get absolutely no airtime and end up being used as coasters for DJ's' beverages?

Will: All right, I'm going to assume that those were the cheese curls talking, because you're not just anyone. You have a gift.

Gwen: So do you. You see the best in me. And you make me believe it. And I love you for it.

Will: All right, so let's go find a studio. We're gonna hire some musicians. We're gonna lay down some magic, and then we're gonna watch you climb the charts.

Gwen: Climb, climb. [Knocking on door] Hey. Adam, if you're looking for Casey, I heard him leave earlier.

Adam: Oh, well, thanks, I'll just catch him later. Hey, Gwen.

Gwen: Hey.

Adam: You know, I was just thinking about your performance last night. You've really got a lot going for you.

Gwen: Oh, thank you.

Will: Glad you think so. I have a proposition for you that you can't refuse.

Luke: Hey, Jade, did you tell my mom that you went to that party?

Jade: I need to get fortified first.

Luke: Well, you better do it soon, before my grandma gets to her first.

Jade: What's the worst that can happen? I'll get grounded.

Lily: So Jade really showed up at that party last night?

Lucinda: Uh-huh, bold as brass.

Lily: She promised me she wouldn’t.

Lucinda: Well, Jade's promises have a very short shelf life.

Lily: I obviously have to have a little chat with her.

Lucinda: Yes, you do, and don't you back down. The little girl has lied to you yet again. Now, for your own composure, and for the sake of your children, you should at least consider tossing her out on her cute, little derriere.

Katie: How great is this, taking a suite upstairs after the party?

Mike: It's the best.

Katie: Well, better than the last time we got a room away from home.

Mike: When was that?

Katie: The cruise. Someone always knocking on our door, typhoons, seasickness.

Mike: Well, that's one thing you don't have to worry about at the Lakeview. Seasickness.

Katie: Actually, funny you should mention that.

Mike: What?

Katie: I'm a little upset to the stomach. Although it could be nerves with the new edition of "Oakdale Confidential" coming out. It's going to be weird to go public as anonymous.

Mike: You think that's all it is? Just nerves?

Katie: Or -- no, I don't want to say it. I'm scared.

Mike: We might finally be pregnant?

Katie: Shh!

Mike: Okay, okay, that'd be amazing.

Katie: I know. [Phone ringing] Oh, I have to take this call. Okay? Think babies.

Mike: Hello?

Vienna: Stop! You can put the bags in the limo, and when you get back, tell the bartender I need his special. Tell him it's for Vienna. He'll know what to do. Katie -- oh, how lovely you both look. Did you enjoy the party last night?

Katie: I thought it --

[Vienna sighs]

Vienna: Men. After last night, I am giving up all men. You should join me at the spa. We're sisters now, Katie. We can soak in a mud bath and steam out the poison of Simon Frasier.

Katie: Why, what did Simon do now?

Vienna: When you told me that he was involved with that woman, I didn't believe it. But it's true. He left us for Carly.

Simon: Carly.

Carly: Simon? Jack!

Jack: Don't mind me. Finish your call.

Simon: Always nice to get the ex's permission.

Carly: So what can I do for you?

Simon: Well, you can meet me once I've fenced the jewels I lifted off Vienna.

Carly: You know, I don't think that's going to be possible.

Simon: Listen, Carly. I know Jack's there with you, so I'll talk, you listen. Now, I'm going to get rid of these diamonds, and then you and I are going to meet and celebrate the way we did last night. Only this time, we'll be rolling in money. How does that sound?

Carly: I will check my schedule, and I'll get right back to you. Okay? Hi.

Jack: Hi.

Carly: Oh, you're here for J.J. It's just J.J. because Parker has band practice.

Jack: No, Carly, wait a minute. Wait, wait, wait a minute. I want to apologize.

Carly: For what?

Jack: Last night. After I caught you joyriding with the prince, I was a little out of line, and it all just came out wrong.

Carly: You know, that was so unusual. We've never had anything like that happen before in our relationship.

[Jack laughs]

Jack: Still, there's no excuse for insulting you. I was worried about you. I still am.

Carly: Well, as you can see, I'm perfectly fine.

Jack: I'm not so sure about that. Listen, I don't know what the deal was last night with Prince Aldolpho, but I got the feeling that you're in some kind of trouble.

Craig: I'm on my way to meet Tom. It's confidential, and I don't want anyone to know -- especially Dusty Donovan -- that I'm spending the morning with my attorney.

Emily: In other words, as soon as you leave, I'm to find Dusty and sound the alarm.

Craig: You know exactly what to say?

Emily: I heard you.

Craig: I wasn't sure you were paying attention.

Emily: Oh, I hung on every dirty, little word.

Craig: Good, then we're good to go. Do not let me down.

[Elevator dings]

Dusty: So I'm sorry Johnny was sleeping when you came up.

Lucy: Oh, I love watching him, listening to those little baby snores.

Dusty: I think that was Chaz.

Lucy: So what's the plan for today?

Dusty: Well, we got Hadley Field. There's a carnival going on. They got a carousel.

Lucy: Sounds great.

Dusty: You sure?

Lucy: Yeah, throw in a popcorn and I'm there.

Dusty: It's the least I can do after watching you put your old man in place last night. It meant a lot to me.

Emily: Dusty -- Dusty, I am so sorry I let you down last night. I had no idea that Craig managed to have the restraining order lifted.

Dusty: It's not your fault. My lawyers are trying to get it reinstated.

Emily: Well, that may not matter.

Lucy: What do you mean?

Emily: Craig is working on something, something involving Johnny. And it may be far worse than what he pulled last night.

Dusty: I knew Craig was gonna make a move for my son. I just didn't expect it so soon.

Lucy: Nothing's ever enough for my father. The injunction's lifted, and now he wants more?

Dusty: What did he say?

Emily: Well, I only got his side of the phone call with Tom. I overheard something about visitation. Did he say anything to you about his plan?

Lucy: I haven't talked to him since last night.

Emily: Well, I wouldn't stand here speculating if I were you. I mean, you know Craig. He wants something, he moves like lightning. I'm telling you, you need to go upstairs, you need to get your son, pack an overnight bag and get out of here while you have the chance.

Adam: Man, this takes me back. 10 x 10 freedom, no limits.

Will: Adam, I hate to pull you back from your glory days --

Adam: Oh, you're not. My glory days are now.

Will: It's great that you're doing what you love. 'Cause Dad always said that was the most important thing.

Adam: He was right. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

Will: Yeah, so, now it's time to share the wealth and help some other people get lucky, too. Right? You said last night that you were blown away with Gwen’s voice.

Gwen: Oh, gosh, come on, Will --

Adam: Oh, no, no, I was blown away. But not just because I was expecting you to be bad. I mean, I hit the clubs in L.A. every night, get about a 50 demos a week, and most of them are junk. Everyone thinks they're going to be the next Beyonce or Justin Timberlake, you know?

Gwen: Why do you do it?

Adam: That 51st demo, or the last club before closing time, I'll hear someone like you. Someone with more than just a dream. Someone with talent to back it up.

Will: That's awesome. So here's the proposition that I was talking about. And you don't have to put any money into it, I'm gonna take care of that. I'll pay whatever it takes to cut a demo of Gwen doing her songs, but I want you to produce it.

Lily: Jade, I thought we agreed, considering the guest list, it would be better if you stayed home last night.

Jade: I'm sorry.

Lily: You went to the party anyway?

Lucinda: She lied her way into this house, and she lied her way out last night.

Luke: Grandmother, this isn't helping.

Lucinda: No, but it's the truth.

Lily: Jade, this is your home. I don't want you to feel like you're a prisoner. But why didn't you tell anybody that you went out last night?

Jade: First of all, I want to apologize for sneaking out. I was all alone, and you and Holden were out trick-or-treating with Natalie, and I looked out the window, and I saw this little girl running down the street with a crown on her head. And something about seeing that, it made me feel like everybody but me was all was all dressed up with somewhere to go.

Lucinda: Oh, so you sashayed out, no letter, no nothing.

Jade: I didn't tell anybody that I was leaving, and that was stupid. I thought I could go and come back, and nobody would know. But when I walked out that door, I had no intention of going to the party. I was just gonna go and grab something to eat and listen to some music. But then I started talking to somebody, and it was their idea to go to the party, not mine.

Vienna: Oh, where the hell is my bloody drink? I can't feel my eyelids. Why, oh why did I let Simon feed me all that champagne?

Katie: Vienna, listen, I don't want to talk about Simon, okay? He's a closed subject.

Vienna: Oh, dream on. Once that man landed in your life, the subject was never closed. Believe me, I tried. You can't escape his power. It's like a magnet, pulling you in.

Katie: Well, whatever power Simon once had over me is now gone. I don't care what he does or who he does it with.

Vienna: Katie, Katie, my little sister, myself. You can't fool me.

Katie: You know what you need, Vienna?

Vienna: Simon Frasier, in any which way I can.

Katie: Hell no. You need a good man. Someone you can believe in. Someone like Mike -- only not Mike. Someone else like Mike. Someone that you could trust with your life, that you can feel good about and believe in.

Vienna: How could you be so calm about this?

Katie: Because I love my husband.

Vienna: Oh, how good for you. If my drink ever comes here, we'll toast to Mike.

Katie: I'll have to use this, 'cause I can't drink alcohol right now.

Vienna: Why not?

Katie: I might be pregnant.

Vienna: Oh, how sweet. Who's the proud papa?

Katie: Mike! And I have a bestseller on the list right now, so you know what? My life is pretty perfect.

Vienna: How nice for you.

Katie: I'm just telling you because I want you to understand that I have no place for Simon in my life right now. And it's great. So I'm going to go find my husband. Excuse me.

Vienna: Wait a minute! Wait a minute! You know what I just realized? Why it's so easy for you to just walk away? 'Cause you didn't see what I saw last night.

Katie: What did you see?

Vienna: Simon and Carly together in his suite. And they were burning with love for each other. You could feel the heat a mile away.

Carly: Why is it that ever since you moved out of the house, you have this feeling that I'm in trouble?

Jack: Carly, last night, you were riding shotgun with a man you'd just met. The guy was going almost 120 miles an hour. If I hadn't pulled you over, another cop would have. That's trouble.

Carly: It's trouble for the prince. It's not trouble for me. I was fine.

Jack: There's a reason why you were in that car, Carly, and I don't think it was because you wanted to see Oakdale by night. So what's the reason? What's going on?

Carly: Is this off-the-record, Detective?

Jack: As off as you need it to be.

Carly: The truth is, I was standing there last night all dressed up in that beautiful gown, and I looked into the mirror, and I thought, "Carly, this is your first big, formal event as a single woman." And I almost dove under the covers.

Jack: Oh, come on. When you walked into that ballroom, you were as cool as ice. And I took one look at you, and you reminded me of somebody, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember who it was. Then, of course, it dawned on me. Grace Kelly, right?

Carly: Princess Grace. Romantic royal. It turns out that Prince Aldolpho had always had sort of a secret crush on her, and he asked me to dance. And he asked me to go for a drive, and -- what can I say? I was flattered.

Jack: Just flattered?

Carly: He's hardly my type.

Jack: Well, I didn't think so.

Carly: You just thought that I was after him for his money.

Jack: Oh, that's a stupid, stupid thing to say. Okay, you're right. That might have been a page from your old playbook, but that's not how you are now. I just wish --

Carly: What?

Jack: I wish I could understand how you could go on such a dangerous drive like that when you know you've got three beautiful kids here waiting for their mommy to come home.

Carly: You know, I felt perfectly safe, Jack.

Jack: Really? 'Cause that's not how you looked when I picked you up. What made you into such a daredevil, Carly? What is it? Is it Simon?

Carly: Is what Simon?

Jack: You two weren't together last night.

Carly: Ooh, did you pick that up on your surveillance, Detective?

Jack: Carly, Simon hurt you, is that why you turned to the prince? Because if you and Simon have broken up, you shouldn't turn to some stranger.

Carly: Who should I turn to, Jack?

Jack: Well, at the end of the day, whatever it is you want or need, you can always turn to me.

Katie: I don't care if Simon and Carly burned up the whole world. I will not get dragged back into that drama.

Vienna: Fine. Be a little goose with your head in the sand. I guess we're not sisters after all.

Katie: Look, I do know this -- I do know that Simon cares a great deal for Carly.

Vienna: No, Simon, he cares for good clothes and fine wine. I've never seem him look at a bottle of Chateau Margaux the way he looked at her.

Katie: All right, well, here's something else you don't know. Carly just got divorced, so I think she's probably taking things pretty slowly.

Vienna: If that's what you need to believe, who am I to burst your bubble? But I know what I saw, and the memory of it will haunt me forever. It's not easy to watch another woman take your place in a man's bed, especially when that man is Simon.

Katie: Wait, do you mean that -- I mean, that they literally --

Vienna: How else would I mean it?

Katie: Simon and Carly had sex? You know this for a fact?

Vienna: I know when love has been made. The bed was a mess, and Simon and Carly were nearly naked, both of them. It was quite obvious.

Carly: I'm not sure what you're saying, Jack, or what you're offering.

Jack: I thought I was pretty clear.

Carly: No. You said that I should turn to you if I want anything. Or need anything. Do you mean turn to you as a friend or as something more?

Jack: Do you want there to be more?

Carly: I want to know if you're saying that there's a chance for us if Simon’s out of the picture.

Jack: Well, that would depend on whether or not Simon is out of the picture. Is he?

JJ: Dad, come on, we're gonna be late for school.

Jack: Yeah, we'll talk later.

Carly: Good-bye, you have a good day. Good luck on that math test, okay?

JJ: It's a no-brainer.

Jack: I'll see you, Carly.

Carly: Yeah.

[Doorbell ringing]

Carly: Hey, little guy, what did you forget?

Simon: I waited until the coast was clear. I didn't want Detective Snyder to see this.

Carly: Ohh!

[Simon opens up the briefcase and its full of money]

Gwen: Wow. Will, you might want to run that by me before you ask your brother.

Adam: What's the matter, Gwen? You don't want your brother-in-law producing your CD?

Gwen: No, I was joking. That would be amazing. Will says that you are the best in the business.

Will: So you know you're going to be in good hands.

Gwen: I do have a question, though. Why would you want to produce a vanity CD for a total unknown?

Adam: Everyone starts out as an unknown.

Will: And it's not a vanity CD if a pro with a track record's producing it.

Adam: So if you're serious about footing the bill, I say let's find a studio and go to work. I mean, I think we could work well together.

Gwen: Does that mean --

Will: Gwen's got a producer.

Adam: She does now.

Lily: So you had no intention of going to the party, but someone talked you into it?

Jade: Yeah, I mean, he seemed like a pretty nice guy, so I thought, what's the harm?

Lucinda: Well, the harm had already been done, because Lily trusted you, and you left the premises without leaving her a note.

Jade: I'm not used to anybody caring whether I stay or go. And not leaving a note is like another way of not being straight with people.

Lily: Sounds like lying to me.

Jade: Listen, when you've lived the way that I have, lying doesn't seem like a bad thing. It's a way to get a meal or a place to stay. Or a way to make friends. Or if you're desperate, and you feel like you're not good enough to get along without one.

Luke: Yeah, but Jade, you don't need lies anymore. You're safe here.

Jade: Safe is going to take some getting used to. But for what it's worth, Lily, running into Will and his friends at the party was brutal.

Lucinda: Surely you didn't think Will was going to crown you queen of the ball.

Lily: Why did you put yourself in that position, to be humiliated?

Jade: I told you, I wasn't going to the party. I was just going to Yo’s to hang out.

Lily: And you met some guy.

Jade: Yeah.

Lily: Who?

Jade: You know him, Adam Munson.

Lily: Will's brother? Jade, what were you thinking?

Emily: Okay, Craig, I did what you asked. Dusty's packing his bags and leaving with the baby, although I can't imagine that's what you want.

Craig: You can hang up now, Emily.

Tom: It's usually customary to give 24-hour notice.

Craig: I think I've been away from my son long enough, don't you?

Dusty: We got everything? If not, we can get everything we need on the road.

Lucy: Dusty, do you think this is a good idea? I mean, running away won't change what my father's already set in motion.

Dusty: It'll give us a head start. Chaz is gonna meet us, we'll call Jessica in the car.

Lucy: Why not call Jessica first and get her advice?

Dusty: No, we have no time. We gotta put as many miles between your father and my son as possible. Come on.

Lucy: But Dusty, I just don't want you to get into trouble.

Dusty: Lucy, if you don't want to be involved, I'll understand. I'll call you from the road and let you know what's going on, all right? What do you boys want?

Tom: Dusty, this isn't gonna sit well with you. A judge has ordered preliminary visitation rights to my client.

Dusty: Fine. He can visit Johnny at his high school graduation.

Tom: I'm sorry.

Craig: Don't apologize, just get on with it.

Tom: The order is effective immediately. You need to turn Johnny over to Craig right now.

Coming up on "As the World Turns" --

Simon: I caught a glimpse of the future last night, Carly, with you. The sky's the limit.

Lily: There's only one reason you went with Adam, to get to his brother.

Gwen: So why don't you go hang out with your brother's hand-me-down?

Adam: Yeah, happy to.

Dusty: I'm not giving up my son.

Dusty: This is the last time I'll say it. You're not touching my son.

Tom: You have no choice in the matter, Dusty.

Dusty: A man always has choices.

Tom: The order clearly states that Craig can remove Johnny from the premises. The initial visitation will be a few hours.

Dusty: Not even for five minutes.

Craig: Look, tell us when you're done posturing so I can have my son.

Lucy: He's not your son. He's Dusty’s.

Craig: Look, give it a rest, Lucy. You made your point with last night's show.

Dusty: Tom, I'd like to call Jessica.

Tom: I've faxed her the original order. It's all on the up-and-up.

Lucy: Tom, how could you let this happen?

Craig: All Tom did was file a motion, and the court ruled in my favor.

Dusty: On what planet? Visitation for a convicted felon?

Tom: The court almost always rules in favor of the biological parent, especially if the other biological parent is deceased.

Lucy: How could you be so cruel?

Craig: You're calling me cruel? Cruel is taking off with my son -- and I assume not for a play date -- and denying his natural father a visit.

Lucy: Dusty is the only father Johnny’s ever known.

Craig: Until now. Look, let's make this transition as smooth as possible so we don't scare Johnny.

Dusty: There isn't going to be any transition. What's this, am I under arrest?

Marshal: Not if you surrender the child peaceably.

Dusty: And if I don't?

Marshal: I have the authority to take him by force.

Gwen: Ahh! Do you hear that, Will? I have a producer!

Will: It pays to have one in the family.

Gwen: I mean, I never dreamed -- I did, I just didn't think it would walk through that door.

Will: You gotta wait until you hear the rest of her playlist, because it's gonna blow you away.

Adam: Well, if it's anything like what I heard last night, I'm there.

Gwen: So now what?

Adam: Well, we'll need to lay down some tracks in the studio. And then send the CD out to the right people.

Gwen: That's it?

Adam: Well, we need to work together on refining your sound. And I need you to trust me when I give you direction.

Gwen: Okay, that's not a problem. I love the other bands that you've produced. Temple of Blues is amazing.

Adam: You know, I discovered them walking down the beach -- Venice Beach. Now they can live anywhere they want.

Will: This is great that you're taking her on.

Gwen: Honestly, I don't know even know where to begin to thank you.

Adam: Hey, just show up and work hard.

Will: She's all about working hard.

Adam: Oh, oh, and another thing. You know, we're going to be hanging around each other a lot, rehearsing, recording. I have no problem with your friends hanging around if you have no problem with mine.

Gwen: No problem.

Adam: Even if it's Jade Taylor?

Jade: What? Adam Munson's a really nice guy.

Lily: I know he's a nice guy. He dated Holden's daughter Abigail.

Lucinda: Why didn't you tell me all about this?

Luke: Because I knew how you'd react.

Jade: I don't see what I've done that's so terrible.

Lily: Jade, please, come on. There's only one reason that you went with Adam, to get to his brother.

Vienna: Katie, you truly didn't know that Simon and Carly were lovers?

Katie: I might have suspected.

Vienna: I practically caught them in the act.

Katie: That must have been horrible.

Vienna: Words don't even begin to describe it. When Simon told me how crazy he was about that tramp, as if you and I meant less than nothing to him.

Mike: You're still here?

Vienna: Oh, yeah. I'm on my way to Biarritz, where Simon and I were so happy together. I'm going to rent an impossibly huge suite and drink champagne and play our song.

Mike: You and Simon had a song?

Vienna: I'll find one I like, and then it will be ours. Think of me in my heartache, Mike. I'm sorry we didn't get to catch up.

Mike: With you, Vienna, there's always a next time.

Vienna: Be brave, Katie, my little sister.

Mike: What was that all about?

Katie: Nothing.

Mike: It must have been something. No offense, but you don't look so hot. Did she say something to upset you?

Katie: No. I'm just -- I'm not feeling well. It's even worse than before.

Mike: You might really be pregnant, huh? Well, that phone call was perfect timing then.

Katie: Why, who called?

Mike: It's a job offer in Chicago. Construction supervisor. We're talking a lot of money.

Katie: Chicago? You can't go to Chicago!

Mike: Yeah, they're putting me up tonight. Don't worry -- look, hey, I'll be back on the weekends.

Katie: No, Mike, no! You can't leave me.

Simon: Feast your eyes, Carly, feast your eyes.

Carly: I'm feasting, I'm definitely feasting.

Simon: My contact paid top-dollar for Vienna’s necklace. Especially when he found out it was on loan from the Prince of Leonia.

Carly: And now, you swear to me up and down and left and right and sideways, that he's never gonna find out that you switched the real necklace with the fake?

Simon: Okay, if -- if he ever finds out that the original is gone, there's no way of knowing how or why or when it happened, all right? He's not gonna go public. That's gonna be way too embarrassing. He's just going to file a claim with his insurance company.

Carly: Oh, man. It's too bad we can't keep some of that instead of having to hand it over to that disgusting loan shark.

Simon: Oh, Spirro? Oh, yeah. No, he's all paid off. In full.

Carly: What about the double interest?

Simon: That, too.

Carly: Then what's that?

Simon: Oh, this? Oh, yeah, this happens to be leftovers, all for us.

Carly: Ohh! Do you know what this means? Do you have any idea what this means?

Simon: Yeah! This means that we can finish the building at our own pace, make the units more desirable and sell them off like legitimate developers. And then for you and me, it is on to the next project.

Carly: Wow, can you really see that far into the future?

Simon: Oh, I caught a glimpse of the future last night, Carly, with you. All those setbacks we had just seemed to disappear. We're back, Carly. The sky's the limit.

Carly: Oh, my God, it's Jack. The money --

Simon: Okay -- voila, it's just a briefcase.

Carly: Okay. The kiss --

Simon: Yeah, can't take that back, sorry.

Carly: All right. Just act normal, natural. Okay?

Simon: Excuse me?

Carly: Jack's been asking a lot of questions about last night.

Simon: Don't worry, your hands are clean.

Carly: I don't want you to get into any trouble!

Simon: Look, the necklace is going to be broken up and sold off piece by piece. My hands are clean as well.

Carly: Okay.

Simon: All right?

Carly: Okay. Hey, Jack, what are you doing back here?

Jack: I would like to talk to Carly alone. Please.

Mike: We're talking about a lot of money for us and the baby.

Katie: Honey, we don't need the money. We have my book royalties.

Mike: Okay, those checks come in every six months. We need money now.

Katie: So we'll make ends meet somehow until we get the next one, but I don't want you going to Chicago.

Mike: Okay. Vienna did upset you.

Katie: Well, to hell with Vienna. I need you here. What if I'm not pregnant? How are we gonna make a baby with you out of town? And what if I am pregnant? I don't want to tell you over the phone. That's like a life-changing thing.

Mike: Okay. What are you doing in a half hour?

Katie: Why?

Mike: We'll go down to the drugstore, we'll get a pregnancy test. Whatever we find out, we'll find out together.

Jade: When I met Adam, I had no idea he was even related to Will. I was just sitting at Yo’s, and some drunk was coming on to me, and he got rid of him. So we started to talk, and after a while, he convinced me to go with him to the party.

Lily: Did you accept to go with him before or after you found out he was Will's brother?

Luke: Mom, ease up. You're making way too big a deal about this.

Lucinda: Darling, as I've said before, Jade can just twist you around her little finger. And you remember that, Mama, before you let her spend another night under your roof. And that's all I have to say, and I'm going.

Lily: Thank you. Oh, good, thank you. Bye-bye. All right, let me get this straight. If Mr. Anonymous had invited you to go to the party, would you have gone?

Luke: It doesn't matter what she says, 'cause you won't believe her.

Lily: You're right, Luke. I won’t.

Will: Jade's bad news.

Gwen: I mean, you have no idea what she did to us. She almost ended our marriage.

Adam: No, she told me about that.

Gwen: Oh, okay. Well, did she tell you about the part where she faked an entire pregnancy to make it look like it was Will's baby?

Adam: Well, I think she really wished she had Will's baby.

Will: What, and that makes it okay?

Adam: She obviously regrets the way things got out of hand, but I think she deserves a chance

Gwen: Wait a minute, out of hand? She created this whole situation just to hurt us.

Adam: Okay, maybe that's how you see it, but I don't --

Gwen: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. This is not me feeling sorry for myself. I mean, that's how it was! How does she do it? Oh, yes, I know how she does it. Did you sleep with her, too?

Adam: Look, I just met the girl. But anyone can see that she's had a rough time of it. Okay? And finding out that you killed her mother --

Gwen: Ohh, this is unbelievable! I am sorry, but if you trust a word that comes out of her mouth, I cannot trust you.

Will: Gwen, just hold on.

Gwen: No, no, no! I'm sorry. I do not want you near me or my music, so why don't you go hang out with your brother's hand-me-down?

Adam: Yeah, happy to.

Gwen: It's unbelievable! I mean, do you believe it? I mean, do you believe -- what I just did? I had it and I just threw it away. I just threw it all away.

Dusty: I'm not giving up my son. So what's the plan? You going to grab my son from my arms?

Marshal: Don't make this hard on the child.

Dusty: If I make a run for it, are you gonna shoot me with my kid in my hands?

Tom: Dusty, the marshal will do whatever he needs to serve the court order.

Dusty: I guess I got my answer then.

Lucy: Daddy, if you really love Johnny, how could you put him through this?

Craig: You should be asking Dusty that. If he doesn't give him peacefully, he's going to be arrested. Either way, I get my son, and that would be a black mark against you in a custody battle.

Lucy: Custody battle?

Dusty: Surprised? I'm not.

Lucy: You'd let this get ugly? You don't care if you hurt Johnny or if you scare him.

Craig: There's a simple solution. You just give me Johnny without further mishap. Okay? I mean, what kind of man would endanger a child rather than allow the briefest of visitations with his natural father?

Dusty: The problem is, you don't know anything about him.

Craig: I'll learn.

Dusty: Well, I'm not going to let them pull you from my arms. So I guess I gotta give you up. Be a good boy. [Johnny crying] All right, don't be a good boy. Give him a lot of diaper action. You'll be back with your old man in a few hours. Okay? All right? I love you. I love you. Don't forget that.

[Johnny crying]

Craig: It's okay. It's okay. Thank you. Thank you, Dusty. I'll take very good care of him. You have my word.

[Johnny crying]

Craig: That's a sweet little boy. Yeah.

Gwen: I can't believe what I just did. I just acted like a crazy lady.

Will: You had every right to go off about Jade.

Gwen: But he was going to produce me. I mean, until I wrecked it.

Will: Until he made Jade a part of the deal. You know, I can't believe him. He's lived in L.A. for two years. You'd think he'd see someone like her coming a mile away.

Gwen: Yeah, but he was the best shot that I had at making it.

Will: What? Until yesterday, you didn't even know my brother. And he's not the only producer around. All right? If he believes in you --

Gwen: Believed.

Will: Well, someone else in the industry will, too, all right? We'll go back online, we'll make a list, and we'll check them out together. We're gonna find someone. Someone that knows their way around the business and comes without strings.

Gwen: Okay. The first question of the interview should be, "Do you know Jade Taylor?"

Will: We're going to make this work, all right? You have my word.

Gwen: I believe you.

Lily: I hear Ethan crying.

Luke: I'll go.

Lily: No, no, no, I'll go, I'll go.

Jade: Lily, I hardly know who Adam Munson is. And I really don't care who his brother is.

Lily: Really?

Jade: Yeah, and you know, if it makes it any better, it was just a one-time thing. I doubt I'll ever see him again.

Lily: Whatever. Excuse me.

Luke: Jade, I'm really sorry about all of this.

[Doorbell ringing]

Jade: Maybe that's Lucinda back for round two.

Mike: You okay in there?

Katie: Yeah, I'm all good.

Mike: Well, is anything pink or blue, double lines, plus sign?

Katie: No, not yet.

Mike: Because once we find out if you're pregnant, we're gonna have to draw up some new plans. The job in Chicago is out. I'll find another job just as good close to home.

Katie: I'm not worried, Sweetheart. Everything is gonna fall into place as soon as we know there's a baby on board.

Mike: Okay, just hurry up. I'm not very good at this waiting thing. Especially when it's something that's gonna change our lives forever. Did we make a baby?

Simon: Listen, Jack, whatever you want to say, I'm sure you can say it in front of me.

Jack: Fine. I came back because JJ was asking a lot of questions in the car about you and Simon. And I saw the kiss, so don't tell me nothing's going on. The kids deserve an answer. Carly, are you and Simon together or not?

Craig: Do you know who I am? I'm your daddy. Can you say Daddy? We're going to have the best day. That's right.

Tom: Okay, then if there's nothing else --

Craig: All right. Thank you. Thank you so much, tom, for your help.

Tom: Just doing my job.

Craig: Right. Hey, you know what? I think I'll take him over to see Margo, so he can get to know his aunt.

Tom: Make new plans. You're not one of Margo’s favorite people right now. She does not like the way you handled this with Dusty and the baby.

Craig: Oh, well, she'll get over it. I can't wait to get you home in Fairwinds. We got the nursery all set up. And we got so many toys, more than a toy store!

Tom: Okay, then, I'll be in the office if you need me.

Craig: Tom, take the day off, all right? This day is just for me and my son. Good boy. That's right.

Emily: So, you got what you wanted.

Craig: Not quite. There's one more thing you're going to do for me.

Dusty: The one thing I thought he could never do, he pulled it off.

Lucy: It's only for a few hours.

Dusty: Yeah, he might be on his way to South America with my kid right now.

Lucy: Daddy's playing it by the rules this time. Which is good, because we can fight him by the rules. There has to be some way that we can deny my father access to Johnny.

Dusty: There is. And you're it.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Jack: Are you together or not?

Carly: No, it is strictly business.

Dusty: Only one thing is gonna stop him -- prison. And you're the person who can put him there.

Paul: What the hell are you doing here?
