Margo: What is that?

Tom: My retainer.

Margo: Oh, man, Craig doesn't do anything halfway, does he?

Tom: Didn't even get a chance to deposit it. So, here it goes. That hurt.

Margo: But Honey, you didn't deposit it because you weren't really going to go through with this, right?

Tom: Yeah, 'cause I'm a chump.

Margo: I love you, chump.

Tom: Yeah?

Margo: Yeah, when you told Craig to take this job and shove it, I was more than proud of you.

Tom: Really?

Margo: Really.

Tom: Then, it was totally worth it.

Margo: Oh, yeah.

Casey: Ahh! What have I told you guys about public displays of affection?

Margo: Go away. Go back to college, go anywhere else.

Tom: You can't say that to him, because we actually came here to meet him.

Margo: You can't blame a girl for trying.

Casey: So, how'd you get yourself out of the doghouse?

Tom: You're not supposed to notice stuff like that.

Margo: Your father is no longer Craig Montgomery’s lawyer.

Casey: Already?

Tom: Yeah, it was tough to stick around when he decided to go after Johnny.

Margo: But, fortunately, Lucy brought kidnapping charges against him. So, that ought to put him away for a while.

Casey: Wow.

Margo: Wow, what? What?

Casey: It's just that Craig just got back to town, and already his sister and his kid want to put him back into prison.

Margo: No, I don't want that. I just think it has to happen.

Emily: Call me a pessimist, but I don't really see how your daughter charging you with kidnapping can be a good thing.

Craig: That's not what I said. I said what happened tonight could benefit me.

Emily: I think you're going to do hard time.

Craig: No, I see it all going another way.

Emily: You really are something.

Craig: No, I'm a father who wants to do what's right for his son. Cassandra, so good to see you.

Emily: You have a date in jail?

Craig: Emily, this is Cassandra Willis, Esquire. My lawyer.

Cassandra: If you'll excuse us --

Craig: No, no, it's all right. Emily's like -- family.

[Cassandra laughs]

Cassandra: Is that a good thing? 'Cause it sounds like it's your family who's trying to put you away.

Craig: Well, that's true enough. So tell me how we're going to get around that.

Cassandra: Well, I have good and bad news. Which do you want first?

Craig: Always start with the good.

[Cell phone rings]

Lucy: No.

Dusty: I gotta get that.

Lucy: I know.

Dusty: Emily. Yeah?

Emily: I don't know how to tell you this.

Dusty: What?

Emily: Craig. He's getting out on bail. Tonight.

Mike: Hey, it's okay. I'm not going to take that job in Chicago. All right? I wouldn't leave you like that. We'll try again.

Katie: No.

Mike: This isn't about getting pregnant, is it? Did something happen?

Katie: Kind of.

[Katie remembering Simon and her making love]

Katie: Mike, I'm so sorry.

 Carly: Oh, I am such an idiot. I leave this long and detailed message about how you were right and I do care about you and I want to be with you, and your response to that is not to call me back, it's to take a shower.

Simon: Well, you see, it just didn't seem like a phone thing. I was gonna --

Carly: Oh. Oh, you were going to shower up and put on a nice suit and come sweep me off my feet?

Simon: Carly, we talked -- okay? And you were adamant that there was nothing going on between us. So, when I left your house, I thought that was it. That we were, you know, done with.

Carly: Right. But I realized, among other things, that I wouldn't have been so adamant if I wasn't, you know, attracted to you.

Simon: Right.

Carly: This would be a really good spot for you to jump in with something about how you're equally attracted to me.

Simon: I told you so many times how attracted I was to you. I showed you so many times.

Carly: Well, what I'm saying now is, let's see where this takes us, see how it plays out.

Simon: And you're saying?

Carly: Okay. Okay, just as I thought, you're keeping something from me. Simon, I really hope that you don't make me drag it out of you. But I will, if I have to.

Simon: I'm going to go put some clothes on.

Carly: Now, that's the last thing I expected you to say.

Simon: I'll be right back.

Carly: Well, tell me something, Simon. Did you listen to the entire message?

Simon: Yeah.

Carly: So, you heard the part where I said that I was wrong? You know I never, ever admit when I'm wrong.

Simon: Yeah, you said that in your message, too.

Carly: Maybe you didn't hear the hidden message, which was, if I said something that hurt your feelings, I'm sorry. And that, too -- that's something that I very rarely say.

Simon: Why are you sorry?

Carly: Because I said mean things to you. And because I came very close to telling you to get lost.

Simon: Well, I said some pretty blunt things, too.

Carly: We don't really seem to be communicating very well here, Simon. You got through to me. And not just about us. Afterwards, when I was talking to Jack, I told --

Simon: Jack? Whoa, whoa. Afterwards, Jack?

Carly: He came back. He told me that he wanted us to try again.

Simon: After you left that message for me?

Carly: Right.

Simon: Right. Oh, so now you're afraid you're going to hurt my feelings if you want to take that message back.

Carly: Oh, no, no, no, no! I told him what I should have told him in the first place. That it is definitely not just business between you and me, and that as far as he and I are concerned -- well, that the ship had sailed.

Simon: Okay, so Jack wanted you back and you said no?

Carly: Simon, if you hadn't told me off about him -- if you hadn't made me look at that relationship in a whole new way, I never would have had the strength to say no to him. But because of you, I did. And it was the right thing to do.

Simon: Because of what I said?

Carly: Well, maybe not just because of what you said. I suppose that kissing might have had something to do with it.

Simon: Oh, I can't believe it. I can't believe you're telling me this now.

Mike: Hey, I mean this. I want you to stop saying you're sorry.

Katie: Mike, you don't understand.

Mike: No, I understand that you were upset and I shouldn't have left you, and I'm the one who's sorry.

Katie: No, no --

Mike: Don't be unhappy. I hate seeing you unhappy.

Katie: Don't be so nice to me.

[Katie screams]

Mike: Hey, hey. Whoa, what happened? Whoa, whoa. Come here, come here, come here. You got glass in there.

Katie: It's okay.

Mike: No, it's all over the floor. What happened?

[Katie remembering]

Simon: It's in a box filled with things that remind you of me.

Katie: It doesn't remind me of you, it reminds me of Mike. Give it back.

[Glass breaking]

Mike: Katie. Hey. What happened?

Dusty: He's already out?

Emily: Well, his lawyer is handling the paperwork.

Dusty: Tom must feel very good about himself.

Emily: Tom quit.

Dusty: What?

Emily: When they came back to the jail, Tom quit. He said he wasn't going to help Craig go after Johnny.

Dusty: So Craig already has a new lawyer?

Emily: Yeah. Well, I think he has them on tap. But there's more. This new lawyer of his said that the kidnapping case is going to move along pretty fast. I mean, much faster than is good for Craig.

Dusty: Time's not going to do him any good anyway, not against Lucy's testimony. So, what do you think? You think he'll back down?

Emily: Dusty, we're talking about Craig here.

Dusty: If he thinks it's a lost cause, he might not want to put his daughter through all of this. You know? He's got to know what he's doing to Lucy.

Emily: Craig doesn't think anything is a lost cause. You know that.

Dusty: That's true. You're right. Emily?

Emily: Yeah?

Dusty: I want to thank you. Thanks for helping us out.

Emily: Don't even think about it.

Lucy: So what wasn't I supposed to hear?

Dusty: Your dad's getting out on bail, tonight. And Tom quit.

Lucy: He did?

Dusty: Yeah. But that's a good sign, right?

Lucy: Yeah. It -- it all seems sad.

Dusty: It is sad. I'm sorry.

Lucy: Well, I don't want to stay here. I mean, especially if my dad's on his way home.

Dusty: I'm going to go home and check on Johnny.

Lucy: Good, tell him I love him.

Dusty: Why don't you tell him? I want you with me. I want us together.

Lucy: Okay. Yeah. That sounds good.

Craig: Emily -- Emily, focus.

Emily: Why did you make me do that? Why does Dusty need to know that you're getting out on bail?

Craig: He doesn’t. But he needs to think that he can trust you, rely on you.

Emily: But he can’t.

Craig: It doesn't matter. It's not important. What's important is that you trust me. And when I get what I want, you get to have what you want. And we live happily ever after.

Craig: Why are you alone? Why isn't there somebody with a key?

Cassandra: Hey, they are making this release as difficult and time- consuming as possible. If I didn't know better, I'd say they don't like you much.

Craig: Little minds -- they all have little minds! So how long is this going to take?

Cassandra: Well, I told them if it takes longer than 30 minutes, I'm going to file a harassment suit.

Emily: I'm out of here.

Craig: No, no, no, I need you. So, when can we get the court date?

Cassandra: Tomorrow, in all probability.

Craig: Fine by me.

Cassandra: Oh, really? Yeah, I would like time to prep for this. If we're going to discredit your daughter's testimony, it'll be necessary to discredit your daughter. I need to know how far you're willing to go.

Craig: Hmm. It won't come to that.

Cassandra: And how can you be sure of that?

Craig: Because I'm going to handle my daughter myself.

Mike: How did the glass get all over the floor?

Katie: I -- dropped something.

Mike: All right, I don't want to be a know-it-all or anything, but when you drop glass, you might want to put some shoes on, Sweetheart. Do you want to go to the emergency room?

Katie: No, no, it's fine.

Mike: All right. Okay, I want you to stay off of it so it doesn't open up again.

Katie: Right.

Mike: So, how do we play this?

Katie: What -- I don't know what you mean.

Mike: Yeah, you do. Obviously something is bothering you. You don't want me to talk to me about it. So, should I just ask you a bunch of questions or pretend like nothing's wrong?

Katie: No, you're right. Something's wrong. I made a huge mistake, Mike, and you deserve to know about it.

Carly: I'm confused. How was I supposed to tell you something that Jack said before he said it?

Simon: It's just weird, you know? I mean -- okay, so I'm at your house, and you're giving me reason after reason after reason of why we can't go any further. And then now you're telling me that you turned Jack down because of what I said.

Carly: I thought that's what you wanted?

Simon: Well, I'm really confused, as well, because I heard you. You said no, very clearly.

Carly: Right. But that was just a reflex. But then I thought about it and I saw how wrong I was. Come on, Simon. You've got to give me a break. I mean, earlier, you told me that what I've been basing my life on for a very long time here was bogus. And now you're mad because it took a little while for it to sink in?

Simon: Yeah, I am -- no, no. Why are you even listening to me, huh? I mean, God, you never listen to me.

Carly: Simon? Do you think that I'm asking you for some kind of commitment? Is that what this is about? This is cold feet, right?

Simon: No.

Carly: Because I am not stupid. I'm not looking for a rose-covered cottage and eternal domestic bliss with a commitment-phobic jewel thief. All I'm saying is what I thought you were saying, that we should see where this takes us, you know? Play it out.

Simon: Yeah, yeah, I know. I know, I know.

Carly: You're freaked out. I can tell that you're freaked out. And I understand, because I was freaked out when you were talking about how you thought that I was using Jack and the children to hide.

Simon: Oh, come on, why did you even listen to me? What the hell do I know about relationships anyway, huh? Me? I was just shooting off at the mouth, you know? I wanted you, so I said whatever came into my mind.

Carly: You always say anything get what you want, don't you? But this time, I think you were right.

Simon: Me? Right? Okay. I was?

Carly: Yes. Simon, if in the last few months, I hadn't felt more alive than I have in years, then those words that you said, they wouldn't have meant anything. What? I'm just repeating something that you said. Why do you look like this? Why do you look so upset about it?

Simon: All right, when I told you that I was crazy about you and that you are really beautiful, and funny and sexy -- all those things are true, okay?

Carly: Uh-oh. So why does you being crazy about me sound like some big, fat roadblock?

Simon: Because -- and this is fairly new to me -- because maybe I don't want to hurt you.

Casey: So Lucy's really taking Craig to court, huh? Are you going to prosecute?

Tom: I'm not the D.A. anymore.

Casey: Yeah, but now that you're not working for Craig, you can get your old job back, right?

Tom: I think that bridge is pretty well burnt.

Casey: No, they're going to want you back. You're the best.

Tom: Well, you see, that's not how it works. I quit my steady job to make some easy money, and then I quit that job before I got to spend any of the easy money, so -- maybe they're looking for a little help around here.

Margo: Come on. You had the easy money, you just didn't want it.

Tom: Actually, that is correct. All right, you heard enough about our troubles. So, what are you hear to see us about?

Casey: Oh, nothing.

Tom: Come on, you listened about your mom's diabolical brother and your dad's career falling apart, what do you need?

Casey: Really, it's not that big a deal.

Margo: Come on, Casey. What's up?

Casey: I think my timing stinks. I was actually going to talk to you guys about money.

Barbara: What happened?

Chaz: Is everything okay?

Dusty: It's okay. Slight change of plans. First, let's go upstairs.

Barbara: You didn't do it, did you? You didn't press charges against your father.

Dusty: Calm down. She did press charges. But her father is getting out on bail tonight. So, I think it's a good idea if we get him upstairs so he's safe.

Barbara: I'm sorry. I jumped to the wrong conclusion.

Lucy: We're all on edge.

Dusty: It's past his bedtime anyway. You want to come up and read him a story?

Lucy: You know what? Why don't you guys handle it tonight? I'm going to say down here and wait with Barbara.

Dusty: Okay. Give Nana and Lucy a kiss goodnight can you do that for me?

Barbara: Oh, Nana. Oh.

Dusty: All right.

Barbara: Okay, I'll see you in the morning, precious boy.

Lucy: Good night.

Dusty: Give him a kiss.

Lucy: Sleep tight.

Barbara: It's been a hell of a day. Do you want something strong?

Lucy: I'm fine.

Barbara: So, your father knows what you intend to do?

Lucy: Yes.

Barbara: So what happened?

Lucy: You know, I'd really rather not talk about it. It's been a hell of a day.

Barbara: Fine.

Lucy: But I want to talk about Dusty.

Barbara: Really? With me?

Lucy: Look, we're all under stress, and Dusty is getting it from all sides. I think, you and I, for Dusty's sake, should try to get along these next couple of weeks.

Barbara: We get along.

Lucy: Right. The way you jumped on me when we walked in, that was just old friends saying hi.

Barbara: All right, we can try something different. We don't have to pretend to get along. We can just speak the truth, put our cards on the table.

Lucy: What cards?

Barbara: I appreciate the fact that you stood up to your father. But he will not go down without a fight, and he will not fight fair. He has one weapon in his arsenal. Something that you and Dusty refuse to recognize.

Lucy: And that is?

Barbara: Your feelings for Dusty. Your father will get on that stand and say that there is one reason, and one reason only that you've taken him to court. To get Dusty to love you.

Craig: It's always nice to get home after a long, hard day at the office. How about we get a drink, huh? We can toast your loyalty, your ingenuity --

Emily: I'd rather cut this short and go home.

Craig: Are you really that exhausted?

Emily: I'm just sick and tired of helping you put Dusty through the wringer. And you know what? It's getting harder and harder for me to believe that you getting Johnny has anything to do with helping me get what I want.

Craig: I know. It's always darkest before the dawn. That's why it is very, very important to have faith and patience.

Emily: What is that?

Craig: This is a means to the end, for both of us.

Coming up on "As the World Turns" --

Emily: You're going to drug your own daughter so she can't testify against you?

Lucy: You and I should stop seeing each other.

Carly: I came here to tell you that I want you. Was I wrong?

Mike: What you said is right. I am in your corner, and nothing could ever change that.

Tom: What do you need?

Casey: Well, school's a little more expensive than I thought. [Margo and Tom laugh] Books --I had no idea how much they'd be.

Margo: Oh, now he wants books for college.

Casey: Yeah, and here's the part you're not going to like. Since Adam and I are producing Gwen's new demo, I kind of want to give up one of my nights at Crash to this new D.J.

Tom: Okay, this is not about money. Here's what worries me. You working with your brother, it's your freshmen year, your first semester. It's just really not a good time to split your focus.

Casey: Are you kidding? I have a chance to produce a demo with my brother. That's an internship in production that most kids would die for. There's no way I'm passing it up.

Margo: But you know, if he gives up a night of working, then he's got more time to study.

Casey: No, no, I can still do it now. That plan was before I knew about your job.

Tom: I'll have a check for you tomorrow.

Casey: Well, that was easy.

Tom: You know, an opportunity to work with your brother on something that you love -- I think it's pretty cool, as long as you remember to mention our names when you're accepting all the awards.

Casey: Yeah, right after assistants and stylists -- [Tom laughs] And Dad?

Tom: Yeah, what now? A new car?

Casey: Maybe -- maybe all this job stuff -- maybe you'll end up doing something you really love. And I think that'd be great. But now, I've got to go, because I have an exam in the morning. And I'm sorry about Uncle Craig. He doesn't deserve you.

Tom: See you, Bud. I think we did excellent work on that one.

Margo: Yes, we did. You know what's weird, though? Craig doesn't even know him. He never took time to get to know his own nephew. Family doesn't mean anything to him, but yet he's moving heaven and earth to make sure he gets Johnny. Why?

Tom: Can we go home?

Margo: Yeah, let's go home. [Cell phone rings] Sorry -- Hughes. What? Really? All right, all right. Oh, I just want this day to end.

Emily: Tell me what that is.

Craig: Insurance.

Emily: No more games, Craig! Tell me what's in the bottle!

Craig: I'm sorry. I can't pronounce it. But I can assure you it's very, very expensive.

Emily: You aren't serious, are you?

Craig: About what?

Emily: You're going to drug Lucy?

Craig: I never said that.

Emily: But that's what you meant. You're going to drug your own daughter so she can't testify against you?

Craig: I deal in contingencies. And I never commit to any course of action. But I can assure you that I am prepared to defend myself against anyone who ever tries to put me back into that hellhole known as prison. I'm sorry, I've scared you. And what I really want this evening is for two old friends to sit down and make plans.

Emily: Why?

Craig: Why? Because I like you.

Emily: Why did you show it to me? Why did you want me to know about this?

Craig: Well, I don't like secrets, do you?

Emily: I thought -- I thought there wasn't anything I wouldn't do to get Paul back, but this -- this is way too much. This is way too much.

Barbara: When he went to jail for what happened to Rosanna, you didn't say a word. But now, now when you and Dusty are getting close, now you step up to the plate.

Lucy: Is that what you think?

Barbara: It doesn't matter what I think. You know what stinks about trials? It's not about the truth, it's about what's perceived to be the truth.

Lucy: All right, you know what? People may think that, the judge may think that, but there's nothing I can do about that. I can't go back and press charges then. I can't change what already happened. So you know what? I'm just going to go forward and hope for the best.

Barbara: Oh, there is something you can do.

Lucy: Really, what would that be?

Barbara: Don't give them anything to talk about. Stay away from Dusty.

Lucy: I see.

Barbara: This schoolgirl crush of yours, Lucy, is a very dangerous thing.

Lucy: Okay, you know what? This schoolgirl is the best chance Dusty has to hang onto his son. Damn, you know what? I swore I wouldn't let you get to me.

Barbara: I didn’t. The truth did.

Lucy: Okay, okay, you know what? Let's just put our cards on the table. Complete honesty.

Barbara: At last.

Lucy: I know what you think, Barbara, and I am not trying to take Jennifer’s place.

Mike: Katie, this is me you're talking to. If you made a mistake, we can fix it.

Katie: Not this one. Okay -- after you left, I was on my way outside. I was going to the --

[Doorbell rings]

Mike: I'm gonna see who that is --

Katie: No, no, I'll get it!

Mike: Hey, whoa, whoa, you need to stay off that foot. All right? Hey, look who it is.

Lucinda: Well, there you are. For heaven's sake, I've been trying to reach you all day. Where were you?

Mike: A pleasant, good evening to you, Lucinda.

Lucinda: I need the new pages for the reissue of "Oakdale Confidential."

Katie: I know, I'm sorry --

Mike: Look, Lucinda, this hasn't been a good day. Maybe you can come by another time.

Lucinda: Darling, I'm just trying to expedite things. The deadline is fast approaching.

Katie: I know when the deadline is.

Lucinda: Well, good. Then let me see the pages, all right? I mean, let me have an idea, a preview of the direction you're headed in. And actually, I'm going to have to admit it, I'm human just like everybody else, and I'm longing, I'm dying to know what steamy affair you're going to expose next.

Carly: And how exactly are you going to hurt me?

[Simon remembering that he and Katie made love]

Carly: You would have me stealing the crown jewels and then jetting off to Morocco for some couscous!

Simon: You're damn right I would, because that's life!

Carly: And all Katie would have to do is crook her little finger and you'd leave me high and dry with some camel!

Carly: No response. Well, I can see that we aren't what we were.

Simon: Okay, Carly, you told me that what I said to you didn't register until after I left. Maybe it's just the same for me as well.

Carly: And?

Simon: I think you said a lot of really right things about me. I mean, for one, we're talking about me here. I am so not a guy you can count on.

Carly: Oh, no, no, really, you? So all those times that you lied to me and conned me and stiffed me for the bill, that was all part of a pattern? All those times that you left Katie high and dry, that meant that you were unreliable?

Simon: You really don't know the half of it.

Carly: I do. I know it all. And that's the beauty of it, Simon. We know the worst things about one another, and its okay. Me, for yes trying to be somebody that Jack wanted me to be, that wasn't okay. That was exhausting.

Simon: Okay, just because Jack was judgmental about you doesn't mean you should be with me.

Carly: He just made a mistake. He married me and he thought that he knew me. But he didn't really know me, he didn't know what I was capable of. But you do, Simon. You know all my weaknesses, I know yours. There's nothing you could do that would surprise me. And really, I expect very little of you. Just fun.

Simon: Well, we did have fun, didn't we?

Carly: Past tense.

Simon: You said it yourself, we were on a high. You know? It was just a one-shot deal.

Carly: And you said that the fun was indicating that something good was happening.

Simon: Carly --

Carly: Oh, no. No, no, no, no. No. No, I hate that, when I hear my name and it's low and sympathetic, like I'm being let down easy. And I especially don't want that from you. So here's the deal. I came here to tell you that I want you. And based on what you said earlier, I thought you wanted the same thing. Now, just give it to me straight. Was I wrong?

Katie: I have it almost finished. I just need to polish things before I want anyone looking at it.

Lucinda: And the check's in the mail.

Mike: Lucinda, I could've sworn I said this isn't a good time.

Lucinda: He's very persistent, isn't he? I need those pages, Darling. The deadline is very real.

Katie: I know. I will have something for you tomorrow, I promise.

Lucinda: All right. Possibly you should hand-deliver it to me, since my friend Mike doesn't like me dropping by.

Mike: I don't know where you go that idea from. Look, she really is going through a tough time. So if you could just ease up a little bit --

Lucinda: Darling, I'm so sorry. If there's anything I can do to help or anything at all that I can do, let me know. I do understand how artists suffer.

Mike: Well, that was exactly what we needed. Actually, it was what I needed. I totally forgot about your deadline.

Katie: What?

Mike: Well, I mean, that's what this is about, right? On top of trying to get pregnant, you've got this deadline to deal with, and I was oblivious.

Katie: God, do you know how good it feels to know that you are always in my corner. To know that no matter what happens, you're always on my side.

Mike: Hey, it's a two-way street. You'd do the same for me.

Katie: I want to.

Mike: Okay, look, I know you got yourself in some kind of state here. It's not that I'm not taking that seriously, but everything's all right. And what you said is right. I am in your corner. And nothing could ever change that.

Carly: I am not completely naive. Woman throws herself at guy, guy not thrilled but wants to act like a gentleman. So, the result? Many awkward pauses.

Simon: Okay, no, no, no. You didn't throw yourself at me.

Carly: No, see, you keep doing this. You're focusing on these minor details and you're not going to discuss the giant, stinky elephant in the corner?

Simon: Look, I told you, Carly. I don't want to hurt you.

Carly: Stop it. Stop. The next thing I know, you'll be telling me that you always want us to be friends. Boy, does this scream for a hasty exit.

Simon: Carly, just….

Carly: What? What is it, Simon? And it better be good.

Craig: Don't make more of this than there is. You know how you are, you have a terrible tendency to overreact.

Emily: You are showing me this so I know about it, so I'll be a part of it. But I don't want to be a part of it. I am telling you right now, I don't want to be a part of it.

Craig: You already are. And it's a good thing. We're working together for our mutual benefit. 'Cause that's the American way.

Emily: You can't make me do anything.

[Doorbell rings]

Craig: I'm not going to make you do anything. Once I explain it, you'll want to help me. Sis -- well, just come on right in. Are you off duty? Can I offer you a drink?

Margo: No, I'm on duty. Are you okay, Emily?

Emily: Oh, I'm fine.

Margo: Well, you certainly are a true blue friend. You show up at the jail, you drive him home. I guess she was your one phone call, huh?

Craig: Well, you certainly are on duty. That sounded like the beginnings of an interrogation. So I think I will have that drink, Emily.

Emily: I'm leaving.

Margo: Oh, not because of me?

Emily: No, I have a headache.

Craig: Well, feel better. We'll talk tomorrow!

Margo: She certainly beat a hasty retreat, huh?

Craig: Yeah, well, I think she knew that you wanted me alone with you so we could have a nice brother-sister chat.

Margo: Oh, how I wish we could do that. I wish we could do that.

Craig: Oh, so you're not here to talk, you're here to lecture?

Margo: I don't see how I can get through to you after what you did to Lucy. I don't think there is a person in there anymore.

Craig: Why are you here? You just can't get enough of feeling morally superior?

Margo: Well, that, and also to tell you if you try and jump bail, I will hunt you down, I will drag you back here.

Craig: I'm not going to jump bail.

Margo: Because of Johnny?

Craig: That's right.

Margo: That brings me to my second point. You go near that kid --

Craig: I have rights.

Margo: And you have a sister who will use all means at her disposal to keep you away from Dusty's son.

Craig: He's my son!

Margo: I will get a warrant, and I will trash this place.

Craig: That is harassment.

Margo: And that is exactly what you did to Lucy. You turn my stomach, Craig. I will never let you make Johnny as unhappy as you have made her. And that means keeping you out of his life.

Barbara: Dusty is grieving, and you are in the movie of your own life and Craig Montgomery is going after my grandson. And, so excuse me if I have no room in my life for sentiment or romance. Someone has to be clear and hard as nails, and I'm elected. And I'll tell you something. If I have figured this out, believe me, so has your father. So you ask yourself, Lucy, are you doing this for Johnny, or are you doing this for you? She's all yours.

Dusty: What was that about?

Lucy: I thought it would be a good idea to try to be honest with Barbara.

Dusty: Uh-oh. How'd that go?

Lucy: You know what's really scary about her is that she's not always wrong.

Dusty: What are you talking about?

Lucy: Dusty, I think you and I should stop seeing each other.

Carly: What did you want to tell me, Simon?

Simon: Just -- take care, okay?

Carly: You know, I didn't think it would last long. I thought it would be at least a couple of hours.

Simon: I'm sorry.

Mike: All right, come on.

Katie: Now what?

Mike: Well, I'm gonna take you up to bed. You're not gonna walk on that foot. You got a better idea?

Katie: No, no.

Mike: All right. Now, listen, I know it's a cliché, but everything's gonna be fine in the morning. You'll see.

Lucy: We're dealing with my father. We can't afford to be sentimental or naive.

Dusty: I wish my phone didn't ring when it did.

Lucy: Me, too. But we came to me sure Johnny was all right. He's what's important now.

Dusty: That's right.

Lucy: Or at least that's what Barbara thinks is right.

Dusty: Whatever. So, if we're gonna have to keep our distance, there's something I want to tell you. There's something I want you to know.

Lucy: Yeah, well -- I know you hate to talk.

Dusty: Well, I'm just not good at it.

Lucy: You do better than you think. You know, even though we're not going to see each other, at least we know we're still going to go through this together.

Dusty: So when does all this start?

Lucy: Right away, I think.

Dusty: Can you give me a second before the clock starts?

Lucy: You can't do that. You'll weaken my resolve.

Dusty: Bye, Lucy.

Lucy: Not good-bye. Never good-bye.

Craig: Go home, Margo.

Margo: I will stop you.

Craig: Would you let anyone keep you from Adam or Casey?

Margo: Drop dead, Craig!

Craig: Yeah, I love you, too, Sis! And next time, bring a warrant!

[Door slams]

Craig: [In Katharine Hepburn voice ] "Every family has its ups and downs." We didn't get a chance to finish our little chat, did we, Emily? But we will, and you'll do exactly as I tell you.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Carly: I'm gonna go, okay?

Simon: No, please, please, no, don't --

Carly: Please, I would like to go.

Simon: No, not until we work this out. Please?

Margo: Where are you?

Katie: With Simon.

Meg: Craig's in jail? Paul, what on earth did you do?

Craig: You misunderstood.

Emily: Did I?

Craig: I'm not drugging anyone, you are.
