Katie: Mike, please, ignore them. Let's just go home.

Mike: Okay, I don't have a home anymore.

Katie: Of course you do. Just come back to the house with me. Let's just go.

Carly: Maybe we should go someplace else, huh?

Simon: That's a good idea.

Carly: Yeah.

Katie: Mike!

[Mike punches Simon]

Carly: Oh!

Holden: That's right. I want the single rose on my wife's plate when we get there and the gift box delivered at dessert. Thank you. Yeah, that'd be great. We'll see you soon.

Faith: What'd you get Mom?

Holden: Faith, I thought you were helping Nat put on her PJs.

Faith: It's not Mom's birthday or anything. Why'd you get her a present?

Holden: You know what? You'll find out tomorrow. Now, scoot. If we're going to pay you to start babysitting, you need to earn it.

Faith: I know, I know. Nat? If you don't have your pajamas on by the time I get up there, you can't watch any TV tonight!

Lily: Oh --

Faith: I hope you like it.

Lily: What?

Faith: Sorry, it's a surprise. `†††††††

Lily: What is she talking about?

Holden: Hey, aren't you getting dressed? We're supposed to be there in a half an hour.

Lily: I know. I'm going to have to take a rain check, because I'm not leaving this house tonight.

Paul: I asked you point blank, and you told me everything except what was most important.

Meg: Because it was the opposite of important. Craig tried to kiss me, and I slapped him. It was stupid and forgettable. And besides, there was enough drama that night with Johnny and Dusty. I didn't want to add to that.

Paul: You and I, we have always been nothing but honest with each other. Did Craig change all the rules when you were up there with him in his hotel room?

Meg: I wasn't with him. Look, if this is the way it's going to be, how you're going to react every time we talk about Craig, I don't want to tell you anything!

Paul: Don't do that. You can't do that. Don't put this on me.

Meg: You act so irrational every time we talk about him.

Paul: Because he's dangerous, Meg, and he's using you.

Meg: To get to you. And you're letting it happen!

Paul: Because I walk in here and you're sitting next to the guy in your underwear. You can forgive me for being a little irrational.

Meg: I was sick.

Paul: You were vulnerable, and he saw an opening and he pounced. And he's building up to something. He's building up to something big.

Meg: To what?

Paul: I don't know, but I'm going to keep my eyes open, and you can call me irrational if you want, but I am never going to stop fighting for you. That's not going to happen any time soon.

Henry: Refill, Miss?

Emily: What, are you moonlighting now?

Henry: What, are you kidding me? I could never wait tables. I don't have the stamina. It's too hard on the feet. What's up, Doll? You look like you've had too much coffee already.

Emily: More like too much of men. Especially the kind that snap their fingers and expect you to jump.

Henry: Tell Paul Ryan that your jumping days are over -- literally.

Emily: It's not -- it's not Paul this time. It's Craig. [Henry sings] Will you stop? It's too late. The damage is done.

Lucy: We have nothing to say to each other, Daddy.

Craig: Saving it for the hearing?

Lucy: Please leave.

Craig: Since Dusty seems to have more influence over you than I do --

Lucy: Stop. Nobody is influencing me.

Craig: I know you, Lucy. You wouldn't do this if it weren't for him.

Lucy: I wouldn't do this if it weren't for Johnny.

Craig: Please, just give me a minute of your time.

Lucy: Why? I've heard all the denials.

Craig: I love you. Lucy, just give me a chance to prove that I'm not a monster. And no matter what you think of me right now, I'm still your father.

[Dusty moans]

Dusty: Damn. Hey! Hey! I need help!

Lucy: Okay, you love me. They're words. There's nothing behind them.

Craig: I'm trying to keep us a family.

Lucy: Then keep us a family and let Dusty raise Johnny.

Craig: Johnny's a part of this family, too. It's a biological fact. Please, please. Don't walk away from me.

Lucy: You're the one walking away, Daddy. I'm going to go into that hearing and I'm going to tell the truth. And then it's up to the courts to decide.

Craig: Can't you have just a little faith that I could be a good father to Johnny?

Lucy: No. No. But if you're in the mood to control something, try controlling the outcome of the hearing.

Craig: And how do I do that?

Lucy: Agree to let Dusty keep Johnny, and its case dismissed. If I were you, I'd be talking to my lawyers, not trying to change my mind and wasting your time.

Craig: Lucy, I am here because I believe that we have a solution to this problem. Together, we can find it.

Lucy: I've offered you my solution. Take it or leave it.

Paul: Think about it, Meg. What was Craigís real motive? To make a pass at you or to make sure that I knew that he made a pass at you?

Meg: You know, I thought the whole thing was pretty pathetic. When men like Craig try to come on to a woman, it's never about the woman. It's about reassuring himself that he still has the power.

Paul: He knew that you wouldn't tell me.

Meg: Because there was nothing to tell. I love you.

Paul: He wanted for there to be a secret between us. That's what he wanted. He knows that secrets do damage.

Meg: All right, so maybe I shouldn't have played into his hands by not saying something.

Paul: Look, I'm -- I don't want to fight with you anymore, all right? Okay, from now on, if Craig does anything else -- no matter how pathetic you may think it is -- promise me that you'll tell me about it and that you'll share it with me and that we'll deal with it together.

Meg: Okay, you made your point. Look, if I'm going to go to work, I'd better get started.

Paul: Okay. You're not going to work, come here. Come on, I'll get you to the couch.

Meg: No, I'm fine.

Paul: You are so not fine. And you are not going to that hospital. Unless you're going to get yourself a room.

Meg: I just -- I need a minute. Just a minute.

Paul: Okay. All right. Look, you know what? I'll go out. I'll get some air and I'll give you some space. Promise me that while I'm gone, that you'll rest. And that you'll think about what I said.

Meg: If you'll think about believing in me for a change.

Paul: Oh, I believe in you. But I'm going to war with Craig. And I need you on my side. And I don't want you caught in the crossfire.

Henry: Far be it from me to give anyone advice on gainful employment, but I am sure -- I am sure that there are other jobs out there that don't involve dancing with the devil, Em.

Emily: I like my job.

Henry: Great, I like lobster. I know that if I eat it, I'm going to get hives. There are some things that we like that are not good for us.

Emily: Thanks for the tip.

Henry: Okay, what does Craig want you to do, and how illegal is it?

Emily: I don't want to talk about it.

Henry: What do you mean you don't want to talk about? That really scares me, Emily. Does he want you to take x-rated pictures for the paper or something?

Emily: No, Henry, this has nothing to do with "The Intruder".

Henry: Then tell him to take a hike.

Emily: I canít.

Henry: Okay, you know what? I got an idea. I'm going to make a little graph here, all right? Now, what we're going to do, is we're going to put all the good things that Craig has done over here on this side. Good. And then over here, we're going to put all the bad things. And look, there's nothing on the good side. But let me show you right here, there's a really wonderful thing on the bad side. Rosanna Cabot.

Emily: You don't understand.

Henry: I understand collateral damage when I see it.

Emily: Maybe what you see isn't the whole picture, Henry. What if what Craig wants gets me what I want, too?

Holden: Lily, you should have told me that you weren't feeling well.

Lily: I feel fine.

Holden: Well, then go upstairs and put on that black dress that I like, and let's get out of here --

Lily: Oh, there -- there's the problem. That black dress that you love so much? I can't quite get the zipper all the way to the top. I'm pushing maximum density in that little black dress.

Holden: I see. That's not true.

Lily: It is true. I put it on, it doesn't fit. I put on some pants, shirts -- nothing fits.

Holden: That's because you just had a baby.

Lily: I've had babies before. But then I was able to get up and walk around after I had the babies. This time is different. All those months, laying flat on my back. My muscle tone has gone on a permanent vacation.

Holden: Bob did say you could start working out soon.

Lily: That's true.

Holden: And if you want, we can put in a gym, I can hire you a personal trainer --

Lily: You're gonna hire me a personal trainer? Can he get here before we go to dinner tonight?

Holden: All right, you know what? Let's go. Let's get to your closet and find you something to wear.

Lily: Yeah, there's a tent in the garage, when Luke used to be a cub scout. We can use that.

Holden: You don't want to miss this dinner.

Lily: I don't need a 5,000-calorie dinner right now.

Holden: It's not about the food, it's about us. It's about spending time together.

Lily: I know that. But you're a guy. You're a guy. You have a baby, the next day, you get back in your favorite pair of jeans. For women, it's different. I'm trying to be a good sport about this. I really am. But I -- I can't go out feeling like I do right now. I'm sorry.

Jade: Lily? Ooh, is she okay?

Holden: I don't know.

Carly: Mike, what are you doing?

Simon: No, it's fine. Its okay, I'm used to it.

Carly: It is not okay!

Katie: Let's go, Mike. Please, let's go!

Simon: Don't bother, all right? You know what? We're leaving.

Carly: No, not until I find out what is going on here.

Mike: Ask your boyfriend. Ask him if he's comparing notes.

Carly: On what?

Mike: He slept with my wife last night. And it looks like I'm not the last to know.

Carly: Is that true? When?

Simon: Can we just go somewhere and talk about this, please?

Carly: When I was trying to call you? When I wanted to talk to you about our future? When you were too busy to get back to me?

Katie: We didn't mean for it to happen.

Carly: Oh, that is just the kind of thing I'd expect to hear out of your mouth.

Simon: I went to see Katie to try and clear the air about us --

Carly: And you thought you'd have one last quickie before you called it quits?

Katie: How can you judge me? After what you and Mike did the night before you were supposed to marry Jack?

Mike: Whoa, whoa, whoa, let's not dredge up ancient history. This is not about Carly and I right now.

Katie: I'm just saying that people make mistakes. People do stupid things, things that they regret the second they have a chance to think about it. This was not a choice, Mike. I didn't mean for this to happen. I love you.

Simon: She's telling you the truth, Mike, all right? We just caught up in some --

Carly: Caught up? Like we got caught up the night before? You're disgusting. It makes you feel a little dirty, doesn't it?

Mike: Why don't you two just both admit it? Admit to everybody that you wanted each other as soon as you ran into each other on that cruise ship again.

Katie: No. I tried to get away from him, Mike. You know that.

Mike: God, stop lying! Tell the truth for once.

Carly: No, you know what? There's no point. Nothing she can say will change anything. Well, I hope you're happy, Katie. Simon's all yours.

Jade: Hey, is Lily okay?

Holden: Very quiet.

Jade: Hmm -- did Natalie go to sleep?

Holden: Yes. Faith is doing her homework and Ethan is sleeping, too, so --

Jade: I'm sorry Lily's upset. How can you feel so bad about herself when she's so beautiful?

Holden: The most beautiful woman I know.

Jade: Do you want me to talk to her?

Holden: I'm not sure that's such a good idea. But if she comes down, give it try. You never know. I am -- I'm heading out to take care of some business. I have a client in town. So, I'll see you soon.

Jade: Uh-huh.

Lily: Where's Holden?

Jade: Oh, he just went out on some business thing. Are you okay?

Lily: Yeah. I'm going to give you some advice about those chips there. One day you could be wearing them in all the wrong places.

Henry: Since when can Craig get you what you want?

Emily: Nevermind. Nevermind, okay? I know what I'm doing.

Henry: No, you don't have that "I know what I'm doing" look about you, Em. And I don't see how Craig can help you with anything when he can't even help himself. You know, his own daughter is bringing him up on kidnapping charges, for crying out loud.

Emily: You heard?

Henry: What do you mean, I heard? It's all over the "City Times." Lucinda's having a field day.

Emily: Oh, I'm sure she is.

Henry: You think now is the time to throw in with this guy?

Emily: It's complicated, Henry.

Henry: No, no, no. Don't give me complicated. Do not give me complicated, give me the truth. Give me the truth or I will track down Craig and find out what the plan is for myself.

Emily: Wow. When did you develop a hero complex?

Henry: You like it? I think it fits me.

Emily: Henry, Craig isn't going to hurt me.

Henry: Hurting is his best event. I just want to find out who the target is this time.

[Knocking at door]

Jack: Hey.

Meg: Hey.

Jack: Glad I found you. Nice shoes.

Meg: I didn't know you were looking.

Jack: What -- what's going on?

Meg: Nothing, I just came down with something. I don't know what. And it was kind of brutal for a while there.

Jack: Contagious?

Meg: This from a guy who gets shot at for a living?

Jack: I hate being sick, Meg, you know that.

Meg: Of course you do. Show me a guy that doesn't take to his bed with the sniffles, and I'll show you a woman.

Jack: Oh, that's very cute. Is that your professional opinion?

Meg: Personal. Too many brothers.

Jack: Yeah. Hey, Paul came by the farm a little while ago looking for you.

Meg: Yeah, he found me. He just left.

Jack: Everything okay?

Meg: Okay is a relative term.

Jack: Yeah, listen, I don't know what's going on with the two of you, but for what it's worth, I kind of agree with him about Craig.

Meg: Oh, not you, too.

Jack: Do you want my history with the guy?

Meg: Not particularly. It seems the whole town seems to have a history with Craig.

Jack: Yes, they do. And none of it any good.

Meg: Well, you know what? I don't have any complaints. At least not today. He's done one good deed for me. I got sick and he drove me home.

Jack: And hung out here until Paul got home?

Meg: Yes, and I was grateful.

Jack: What about Paul? Was he grateful?

Meg: No, Paul gave me a lecture on Craig's ulterior motives.

Jack: Good.

Meg: You know, I can handle him, Jack. I wish Paul and you would just give me a little credit.

Jack: Well, you want credit, go to a bank, Meg. But the next time you get sick, you're better off having a rattlesnake nurse you back to health than to end up grateful to Craig Montgomery.

Lucy: Why are you still here?

Craig: I was hoping that we could go somewhere more private.

Lucy: I can't, I'm admitting a patient.

Craig: Lucy, how can you ask me to sacrifice the relationship with one child in order to keep another. Is that fair?

Lucy: You taught me a long time ago that life isn't fair. Look, it's not that I don't love you. It would be a lot easier if I didn't, but I do. Thank you. Then how can you do this?

Lucy: Because it's the only way to save Johnny. And you.

Craig: You're asking me to abandon my son?

Lucy: You abandoned your son the first second you switched him with Gwen's baby at that nursery.

Craig: You'll never understand until you have a child of your own.

Lucy: No, I'll never understand it, Daddy. I just -- the way you see the world, I don't understand.

Craig: And you see Dusty as a hero. And he's not. He's small time crook who's trying to show the world that he's found redemption.

Lucy: I have to go back to work.

Craig: Lucy, Lucy, please. Your testimony is going to hurt a lot of people, not just me. Are you prepared for that?

Lucy: That's starting to sound an awful lot like a threat, Daddy. Is it?

Dusty: Over here, hey! Hey! Here! Over here!

Paul: Dusty -- let's get you an ambulance. Hey, no, no. Come on, come on. Stay with me, stay with me. Hey.

Announcer: Coming up on "As the World Turns" --

Simon: The point of your computer confession was also to make Carly run for the hills? Congratulations, it worked.

Dallas: Mr. Donovan, do you know anybody who might want to do something like this to you.

Lucy: Yes, my father.

Dusty: No ambulance.

Paul: Dusty, come on --

Dusty: You drive.

Paul: No, you need emergency care. What happened?

Dusty: My brakes.

Paul: Your brakes, what?

Dusty: No brakes!

Paul: All right, look, I need an ambulance. There's -- somebody's been hurt. It's a car accident. I'm on route 30. I'm about 2 1/2 miles west of the Old Mill. Yes, he's conscious, but he can't move one of his arms and he's got a gash on his head. Yeah, I'll hold. Dusty, what happened?

Dusty: My car -- my car --

Paul: What about it?

Dusty: It was sabotaged.

Paul: The ambulance is on its way. Wait, you think somebody did this to you?

Craig: Of course I'm not threatening you. Threats are for people with no other options.

Lucy: Yours are running out fast. Kathy, let me have the Carson chart. Thanks.

Craig: Lucy, I will never, ever hurt you again. You have my word.

Lucy: I've had your word so many times, I've lost count. And I won't drop the charges. You can't intimidate me anymore.

Craig: I'm not trying to intimidate you.

Lucy: Oh, yet you let me know, or warn me about the fact that these people might get hurt? What other people, Daddy? Who are you angry with?

Craig: I'm not angry with you.

Lucy: Oh, but you're angry with Dusty. And you wouldn't think twice about hurting him if you thought it would keep me from testifying.

Craig: I never said that.

Lucy: You didn't have to.

Henry: Em, with this guy, the whomping comes standard. You take someone like Craig, you mix him with your recent escapades, it's like a marriage between nitro and glycerin, sweetheart.

Emily: Would you stop it? Even I know my limits. [Henry laughs] I mean, things I'm willing to do and --

Henry: And things you're willing to let other people do.

Emily: Maybe.

Henry: Emily, there isn't a prize on this earth worth putting that kind of malice back into your heart.

Emily: My heart is the problem, Henry.

Henry: No, Sweetheart, Paul is the problem. Again.

Katie: Can we all just keep our voices down, please?

Carly: Why? You don't want everyone to know the town's got itself a new tramp?

Mike: No, let's not go there, Carly.

Carly: No, let's, Mike. You see, I knew from the beginning that you couldn't stand the idea of a man moving on past Little Miss Sunshine.

Katie: I did not mean to hurt you, Carly.

Carly: Oh, well, then it must be okay. Katie didn't mean it. Katie's sorry. And when Katie cries, we all better come running with a hanky.

Simon: All right, Carly, come on, that's enough.

Carly: It is not enough! It's no near enough, and I'm getting to you!

Simon: Listen, it didn't mean anything, all right? It was a twisted way of saying good-bye.

Carly: Oh, a roll in the hay as a way to say good-bye. Well, that's really -- that's brilliant, Simon. You know, Mike, why didn't we think of that?

Mike: You know what? Let them have each other.

Katie: No, Mike, don't say that. I don't want Simon, I want you.

Mike: Okay, it's a little bit late for that.

Katie: I made a mistake. I'm sorry, I love you.

Mike: Really?

Katie: Let's just go home. Let's just talk, or go somewhere, just you and me.

Mike: Okay, maybe we can go somewhere, you can convince me how much you love me? Maybe we can have a little makeup sex. How many times did you wish it was him instead of me?

Katie: Never! I swear, Mike, I love you! I made a mistake!

Mike: God, I didn't let myself see that. I had that gut feeling and I ignored it. All because I thought you loved me.

Katie: I do.

Mike: Yeah, well, part of you loves him, too. I don't need that kind of crazy in my life.

Katie: Mike, wait!

Simon: You want to hit me, too?

Carly: Yeah, would you mind?

Simon: Listen, Carly, I'm not gonna make any excuses, all right? I messed up. We messed up, okay? I went to go to see Katie to get some kind of closure, all right? And that's exactly what happened, trust me.

Carly: You just took a little detour along the way, huh?

Simon: I got back and I got your message, all right? And then --

Carly: The message that I left you when you were showering off your mistake.

Simon: I got the impression when I left your house that we were done, okay? That message changed everything, all right? I totally regret what happened. I wish I could take it back, all right? But -- hear me out, please, just give me chance.

Mike: I've said everything I have to say.

Katie: I havenít.

Mike: Then go tell it to Simon.

Katie: I don't want to talk to Simon.

Mike: No, you just want to have sex with him. So you did. You grabbed him and you took it.

Katie: That is not true.

Mike: No, that is true. You wanted a husband? Marry Mike. You wanted to get pregnant? Go to a fertility clinic. When I think about how you guilted me into seeing that specialist -- but you had to have your way, because God help us all if Katie doesn't get exactly what she wants. Well, now you want Simon, take him.

Katie: I don't want Simon.

Mike: Grow up. The world won't end because you don't get your way.

Carly: So, while we're on a -- what, a 24, 48-hour timeout, you thought that it would be a good idea to go and have sex with Katie one more time?

Simon: That is so not fair. Not fair. I heard you tell Jack that I meant nothing to you, that we were just a simple -- what did you say, business arrangement?

Carly: Well, since when do you believe everything out of my mouth? I don't believe half of what comes out of yours.

Simon: Well, shoot me for not taking you at your word.

Carly: Well, what about afterwards? What about the whole "sex with me, sex with her, sex with me again" thing?

Simon: Okay, I should have told --

Carly: Disgusting!

Simon: I should have told you as soon as you walked in the room.

Carly: Yeah, you should have told me. You're damn right you should have told me. But you didn't, did you?

Simon: You know what, Carly? We're not married, okay?

Carly: No, we're not. And thank God for that. But Mike is. And you didn't care about that either, did you? He is my friend. And this hurts me, but it hurts him a heck of a lot more.

Simon: I am sorry, okay? Hurting you was not what I set out to do.

Carly: Well, Simon, maybe you should have thought about that before you got caught up in that moment, huh? It's been fun. See you around. I guess you can't have too much of a good thing. You're living proof of that.

Katie: Why are you looking at me like that?

Simon: Why did you tell Mike, Katie? Hmm? You and I, we could have worked it out. Man, why do I just keep messing up my life?

Jade: How was the shower?

Lily: Relaxing. You don't need to hide the chips. I ran from every snack the kids ate, I'd have to move out.

Jade: That wouldn't be good.

Lily: I'll let you get back to your reading, I'll just go.

Jade: No, no, no, no. We can talk, if you want.

Lily: I don't think you'll understand what I'm going through right now, Jade.

Jade: I want to try.

Lily: Okay. I'm having a little hard time accepting my body. I feel uncomfortable in my own skin.

Jade: Oh, Lily, stop it. You're gorgeous. And you just had a baby. Would you give yourself a break? And in the meantime, maybe we can go shopping or get some new clothes?

Lily: No! No, no, no, that would be a surrender. No, no new clothes. No.

Jade: How can you be so down on yourself when you've got a guy that's crazy about you, no matter what you've been through?

Lily: I love Holden. He is amazing. But I'm looking in the mirror -- and I know this seems really vain --

Jade: No, no, no, no. It doesnít. Sometimes I look at a mirror and I feel bad, too. Like nothing's wrong, but nothing's quite right, either.

Lily: I'm so grateful to be alive, and so happy that my son is healthy and my family loves me. This is so silly, to be worried about a couple extra pounds.

Jade: I hope I look as good as you when I'm --

Lily: Oh, don't -- when you're my age? Don't say that, please.

Jade: I wasn't going to say that, I was going to say when I'm having kids.

Lily: Speaking of kids, where is Luke?

Jade: He's at Java. I'm supposed to meet him there.

Lily: Good. Well, then go. You go meet him.

Jade: Are you sure?

Lily: I'm absolutely sure. I am fine. And thank you for the talk, really.

Jade: Did it help?

Lily: It didn't hurt.

Jade: Okay, well, we won't be late.

Lily: Okay.

Henry: So, what's the deal? You help Craig and you get Paul? Is that it? Is that the cut and dry?

Emily: No.

Henry: That's really convincing, Emily.

Emily: I just wish I could forgive him, Henry.

Henry: I do, too. I really do. He's a virus, that Paul. He sits in your system, and then he acts up and he makes you sick. You need to get over that virus, Emily. I can't help you do that.

Emily: No, no. Where are you going?

Henry: I am going to find a phone book and see if I can locate an exorcist.

Emily: You are the only human being on this earth who could make me laugh at a time like this.

Henry: Yeah. This may be the last time I do it. I can't watch you self-destruct again, Emily. I canít. And next time, there may not be enough of you left to put back together again.

Emily: I know what I'm doing.

Henry: Paul Ryan has said that he doesn't want you in his life in every language known to man. It doesn't matter if you won't listen to it. Now, if you are so desperate that you are willing to consort with Craig to do God knows what, then trust me, the worst is yet to come.

Meg: So, you and Paul on the same side. Planets may collide.

Jack: This isn't funny, Meg.

Meg: But you're smiling.

Jack: Because I want to believe that you can handle yourself.

Meg: Poor, innocent me?

Jack: Okay, you know what? You see, Carly thought she could handle herself, too. A few years back, Craig was really into her. And everywhere she turned, there he was, and he made damn sure I knew about it. Does that sound familiar to you?

Meg: Yeah, a little.

Jack: And you and Paul, you're fighting about it?

Meg: A little.

Jack: Everything Craig does has a purpose, right down to what he orders for breakfast. I swear to you, the nicest of gestures turns into a knife in the middle of your back if you're not careful.

Meg: Hmm, two men I love telling me the same thing.

Jack: Well, maybe it's time to start listening.

Meg: I am listening. It sounds that life is one sick game for Craig. And this game is about to end.

Jack: My work is done here.

Meg: I have to get to the hospital.

Jack: Come on, I'll drive you.

Meg: No, I'll drive myself.

Jack: You sure?

Meg: You know what? I hate being played.

Jack: The question you have to ask yourself is, what are you gonna do about it?

Meg: Maybe I'll play Craig instead of having him call all the shots.

Jack: No, don't waste your time. Just steer clear of the guy.

Meg: You know what? If Craig knows what's good for him, he'll steer clear of me. Coming?

Lucy: Leave, Daddy. We've got nothing else to say.

EMT #1: We've got a possible concussion, bp stable, heart rate 110.

Lucy: Dusty?

Paul: I found him by the side of the road.

Lucy: Oh, my God, what happened?

EMT #2: There's a deep laceration to his right forearm, possible fracture.

Lucy: Okay, has he been conscious the whole time?

EMT #1: Yes, but there was a loss of consciousness after the crash.

EMT #2: And a lot of discomfort in the left rib cage. Possible fracture there, too.

Lucy: All right. Well, look, everything's going to be okay. I'm going to make sure that its okay. Alert radiology. I need a full ct scan and a brain scan. Take him to cubicle four. I'm gonna get -- I'm gonna make sure -- I have to check that arm.

Dusty: Wait a sec --

Lucy: We'll talk later.

Dusty: Listen to me. It was no accident.

Lucy: What?

Paul: The police showed up with the ambulance. They're investigating.

Lucy: Why, was there another car involved?

Dallas: Mr. Ryan, Officer Griffin.

Paul: Yeah, hi.

Lucy: Paul, you'll take care of this?

Paul: Sure, go.

Dusty: No, no, no.

Lucy: You need to get into a room, Dusty.

Dusty: I want to answer questions.

Dallas: And you were on the scene?

Paul: Yes, but I got there after it happened. I didn't see anything.

Dallas: Excuse me, Doctor, you mind if I ask Mr. Donovan a few questions?

Lucy: No, he needs medical attention.

Dusty: I want to --

Dallas: Mr. Donovan, I just talked to my guys at the scene. They checked your brake lines. Something went wrong.

Paul: What, his brake lines were tampered with?

Dallas: That's what we suspect. Mr. Donovan, do you know anybody who might want to do something like this to you?

Lucy: Yes, my father.

-------------------------------------------

Lily: Oh, Faith, I wish your father were here. He's so much better at math than I am.

Faith: You're not as bad as you think.

Lily: Is that a compliment? 'Cause I could really use one tonight. Am I keeping you up?

Faith: No, I'm not tired. Yawning just means that the lungs need more oxygen.

Lily: Did you learn that in science?

Faith: We're doing a unit on the human body.

Lily: Can we not talk about the human body tonight? I'd kind of like to forget that I have one.

Faith: Why did you and Dad change your mind about going to dinner tonight?

Lily: I just wasn't in the mood. I didn't feel like getting all dressed up.

Faith: I thought you like getting dressed up.

Lily: You know, Faith, remember when Grandma took you to her hairdresser, and her hairdresser gave you this cute little haircut that you hated?

Faith: It was gross.

Lily: It was fine, actually. But no matter how much Daddy or Luke or I told you how pretty it was, you still didn't feel pretty. That's kind of how I feel right now.

Faith: Mom, that's crazy. You're beautiful.

Lily: Thank you. Oh, thank you so much.

Jade: Poor Lily.

Katie: Oh, I'm so sorry. I didn't think Mike would actually look at my computer files.

Simon: How could you write about us in the first place, Katie.

Katie: It was supposed to help me sort out my feelings.

Simon: Okay. Confessions, good for the soul, not so good for a marriage.

Katie: Yeah, well, I have to earn Mike's trust back. I have to start telling him the truth.

Simon: Well, if the point of your computer confession was also to make Carly run for the hills -- congratulations. It worked.

Carly: Emma has excellent taste in houseboys.

Jack: Yeah, you should see what I can do with a pot roast.

Carly: So, you're cooking a lot these days?

Jack: Are you here to talk about my cooking?

Carly: No, I just -- I wanted to know how Parker's doing.

Jack: He's doing fine. Why?

Carly: He seemed a little sad when I left.

Jack: Yeah, we talked, and then it was over.

Carly: Okay. Well, maybe I'll just go in and give them all a quick kiss before I go.

Jack: Carly, you're not here to talk about the kids. So what's going on?

Carly: You already know, Jack. It's the story of my life. I make a mess of everything and I have no one to blame but myself.

Lucy: Dusty, that sling is temporary. Your arm has to be set.

Dusty: How long has he been here?

Lucy: It doesn't matter.

Dallas: I know it's a bad time right now --

Dusty: No, no, it's a good time. Let's do it.

Dallas: Why would Craig Montgomery want to kill you?

Craig: Good to see you up.

Paul: Get out of here, Craig.

Craig: I couldn't help overhearing.

Dallas: Yeah, well, your daughter and Mr. Donovan here seem to think that you tampered with his brakes.

Craig: That's absurd.

Lucy: You were making threats earlier about people getting hurt if I went through with my testimony.

Meg: Oh, my God. What happened?

Paul: Craig tampered with Dusty's brakes.

Dallas: Where were you before the accident, Mr. Donovan?

Dusty: Java.

Dallas: What time?

Dusty: 8:00. I left by 9:00.

Craig: Well, that proves I have nothing to do with it. I was with Meg Snyder. Isn't that right, Meg?

Announcer: On the next "As the World Turns" --

Jack: I'm gonna give you a choice. You can leave here right now on your own, or I can help you leave.

Mike: Here's something you need to know. Once I walk out that door, I'm never coming back.

Meg: What good is destroying Craig if I can't live with myself? Or even worse, if I can't live with you?
