Gwen: No, I mean, it's true. This amazing day happened for me because of you.

Will: Well, Adam made it happen.

Gwen: Well, I mean, it was incredible that Adam brought in those musicians. They are, like, some of the best in the business, and they treated me just like I was one of them. They even told me to call them while I was in LA. I mean, maybe they were just being polite, but it was --

Will: You know they werenít.

Gwen: Well, it just made me feel really good, because I was terrified to go into the studio, and I was terrified of your brother, and then I guess I just ran out of things to be terrified of. Except, maybe now -- going on and on and ruining this wonderful surprise.

Will: It's okay. You must be beat, so --

Gwen: I'm actually really energized with excitement, so here -- look, this is great. Pasta will take me two seconds to cook, and I will make dinner while you tell me all about your GED day.

Will: Well, I put my pencil down before they called time.

Gwen: That's good. I hear that you get extra points for that. What else?

Will: Nothing, really. My day was a lot less interesting than yours was.

Gwen: Oh, but your day was huge. Hey, what was the essay question for history? Was it the industrial revolution? Because you own that.

Will: Stop it, Gwen.

Gwen: Stop what?

Will: Me taking the GED was because I got expelled from school, so this was all for you. It was all about you -- not me.

Gwen: Today was just as big for you as it was for me, okay? So, what's going on?

Will: Nothing.

Gwen: Hey -- we made a deal that we were going to be honest with each other, all right? Look, do you have a problem with what I'm doing?

Will: Yeah, I do.

Jade: Luke, thanks for meeting me so last minute.

Luke: Hey, you got stood up. What else are single, gay cousins good for?

Jade: It's not like Adam and I even had a first real date.

Luke: It was kind of like one of those "catch you later" type deals?

Jade: Kind of. I stopped by the studio where he's producing Gwen's demo, and he was so over the moon about her voice, he didn't notice me coming or going.

Luke: Well, how's your singing voice?

Jade: I was singing a lullaby to Natalie and she asked me to stop -- she said I was hurting her ears.

Luke: Yeah, well, you've got other good things going for you.

Jade: Yeah, like my single, gay cousin taking me out for coffee and desserts at the most expensive restaurant in town. How lucky am I?

Luke: Yeah, it's no big deal. When your mom's a part owner, you get a family discount.

Jade: You know what I just had a sudden craving for? Your mom made apple pie today. So, let's go home and do that instead.

Luke: Wow, Adam must have really gotten you bummed.

Jade: No, no, I just want something homemade. Come on, let's go.

[Cell phone ringing]

Tea: Hello?

Holden: Hey. Sorry to hold you up.

Tea: I was starting to think you weren't coming.

Holden: Just sit tight. I'll be there as soon as I can.

Lily: Hey, who was on the phone?

Paul: I wrote a poem that goes with it. It's about your rare beauty and your unnerving grace. All right, I'm thinking maybe I should just ask you if I can sit down. Can I sit down? So, I missed you last night, so I called you. And then I called you again, and again, and again, and then I finally just gave up, 'cause you weren't picking up your cell. Where were you?

Meg: Home.

Paul: Home is with me.

Meg: No, home is at the farm right now, Paul. Look, I just can't face one more argument.

Paul: I don't want to argue with you either. I'm sorry, I really am. I'm so sorry. I was way out of line.

Meg: Yes, you were. You insinuated I had some kind of private agenda with Craig.

Paul: Again, I'm sorry. But look, Craig is going to prison in a matter of hours, so there's no reason for us to argue about him anymore. And there is certainly no reason for us to be apart anymore. So, can I take you home and maybe we can think of a way to make each other smile?

ADA: Dr. Montgomery, you single-handedly brought charges that have resulted in this hearing. I need you to corroborate your allegation that your father paid a man named Wade Larsen to kidnap you.

Lucy: Well, that's what I thought at the time.

Judge: And what do you think about that years later?

Lucy: I'm not sure.

Judge: Dr. Montgomery, the whole purpose of this hearing is your accusation that your father arranged your kidnapping. Are you now going back on your sworn statement?

Dusty: No, she's not, your honor.

Judge: Mr. Donovan, I was not speaking to you. Dr. Montgomery, what have you got to say for yourself?

Lucy: After I was abducted, I was buried alive, your honor. Needless to say, it was very traumatic. So by the time I was rescued, I was not psychologically in the best shape. I was disoriented, confused.

Judge: The record shows that you didn't press changes then.

Lucy: Yes, your honor.

Judge: Why not?

Lucy: I was going away to school. I just -- I wanted to put the whole nightmare behind me.

Judge: And what has changed now? I see here that your father and Mr. Donovan are engaged in a custody suit in the matter of a minor child, John Dustin Donovan. Are you aware of that?

Lucy: Yes, your honor.

Judge: I certainly hope your bringing charges against one of the litigants in that case is not a malicious attempt to influence the outcome.

Lucy: No. No, and I'm sorry about taking so much time with my questions. It's just that -- I know that I'm under oath, and I want to be as accurate as I possibly can, but it's been such a long time since my kidnapping that I can't be so sure of my answers.

Dusty: You know the truth. Don't be afraid to speak it. Don't be afraid -- not of anything.

Meg: Paul, I just can't go home with you and pretend everything's all right.

Paul: You didn't you miss me last night?

Meg: You know I did.

Paul: Well, then what's the problem?

Meg: The problem is you asking what's the problem. We have issues we need to resolve.

Paul: No, no, no. Not after today. Today, Lucy finally does the right thing and stands up and gets her old man shipped back to the slammer.

Meg: Yeah, Lucy -- your hero. She does the right thing while I give Craig an alibi for when Dusty's brakes went out.

Paul: Oh, I'm not mad about that anymore.

Meg: You don't get to be mad. I told the truth!

Paul: No, no, no. Look, I'm not mad about it, because it doesn't matter.

Meg: Oh, it doesn't matter? Means, ends, it's all the same to you, right?

Paul: You don't want Craig to go to prison?

Meg: If there are bona fide reasons.

Paul: He's trying to take Dusty's kid away from him.

Meg: Your nephew.

Paul: There's no way my sister would want Craig to get his hooks into that kid.

Meg: Like it or not, Craig is Johnny's biological father.

Paul: No, Dusty is the man that Jennifer wanted to raise that child. And that was made legal long before Jennifer died. And now, Dusty is the only father that Johnny knows.

Meg: Okay, so for you, it's about family loyalty. And that's fine as long as you don't sacrifice the truth. That's what makes us slam doors and turn our cell phones off. You wanted me to lie about Craig to suit your purposes.

Paul: Yeah, but if the bad guy goes to jail, do the reasons really matter?

Meg: Of course they do, Paul. That's the same excuse you used a long time ago when you wanted me to help keep Johnny away from his mom. And I tried to justify it with every part of my body, but I knew it was wrong.

Paul: Well, then why did you do it?

Meg: Because you gave me the "it's for a good cause" argument, and I followed your lead. How long did it take me to get that we were playing with people's lives, calling shots we had no right? I don't want to be that person, the one that does the wrong things for the right reasons. Maybe you can excuse it, but I canít. Not for you, not for anyone.

Paul: Okay. And I'm sorry. Never again. But look, with Craig out of the picture --

Meg: Okay. You just don't get it, do you? The problem isn't Craig. It's you.

Gwen: Wait a minute. I don't understand, because from the beginning, you and Casey have been saying that Adam's the best shot that I've got at anyone hearing my music. I mean, I thought that's what you wanted for me.

Will: Yeah, I wanted that for both for us. But it's -- everything's been moving so fast. You're rehearsing constantly, and you're working with famous musicians, and it's like you're already a star.

Gwen: Yeah, I was standing -- I was getting coffee this morning, this woman wanted my autograph. I had to turn her away.

Will: Okay, you know what I mean. Ever since the night that we were in your dorm room talking about your career, it's like you've been living and breathing music 24/7, and it's great -- it's great for you, but --

Gwen: What?

Will: I just -- I thought it was going to be all of us in the studio, you know, working together -- and it's not, really. I just feel like I'm in the way.

Gwen: I couldn't do any of this without you.

Will: I'm not talking about the money.

Gwen: I'm not either.

Will: You have Adam producing you, you have famous musicians and engineers, and I just don't see where I fit into any of it.

Gwen: You don't?

Will: No, I don't, I'm sorry.

Gwen: Well, I'm sorry, too, Will. Because your logic is really scaring me right now.

Holden: That was a guy who's interested in breeding some mares.

Lily: Someone local?

Holden: No, out of town. So, I'm going to go meet him, and we're going to talk business.

Lily: Hello.

Luke: Hey, Dad.

Holden: Hey -- I thought you guys went out to have some coffee?

Luke: Jade changed her mind.

Jade: Yeah, I suddenly realized there was homemade pie right here. You know, why pass that up for something on a menu just because it has a fancy name or whatever?

Luke: Well, I'll go put the coffee on. Hi, Mom.

Lily: Oh, I do exist. Thank you, thank you.

Luke: Well, why don't you get Faith to help you with this?

Lily: Faith said I'm squandering her tween years by making her do this. I wonder where she learned that word, Jade.

Jade: Kids are so precocious these days.

Lily: Let's save Faith being precocious until she's in high school, thank you.

Jade: You got it.

Luke: You want some coffee, Mom?

Lily: Oh, no, no, thanks, it'll just keep me up.

Luke: Well, then, how about a slice of pie?

Lily: That is the last thing that I need. No, thanks, I'll pass.

Holden: Okay, Honey. I'll see you later. Won't be long.

Lily: Whoa, whoa, hold on. Stop right there. Why is there lipstick on your collar? †

Holden: Lipstick, on my shirt?

Lily: Yes, on your shirt. Right here.

Holden: How do you know that's lipstick?

Lily: Oh, I don't know. I've been wearing it since I was 14 years old.

Holden: Oh, well, then it's pretty obvious, right? You probably got a little on me when we snuck away, had a little moment together.

Lily: Not my shade.

Holden: Well -- I don't know what to tell you.

Jade: Oh, my gosh, you know, I think I know how it got there. That must be my new lipstick. I bought it because of the name. Autumn Rose.

Lily: Autumn Rose. And how did Autumn Rose get on the collar of my husband's shirt?

Jade: There was a pile of clean shirts in the laundry, and I just grabbed one to lounge around the house in, thinking that it was Lukeís and he wouldn't care. And I guess I must have gotten kind of sloppy putting on my makeup. I'd be more than happy to wash it out.

Lily: Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no. I'll just make it go away with my little pen here. You can squander some of your youth fluffing and folding later on.

Jade: Lucky me.

Lily: Excuse me.

Jade: You and I both know I lied for you. So don't walk away like nothing happened.

Will: You know what I sound like?

Gwen: Like someone who loves me and misses me? Want to give me a tough one next time?

Will: No, I'm sorry. I sound like a selfish idiot who's making way more out of this than he should.

Gwen: Come on, when are you not entitled to your feelings?

Will: Those aren't the only feelings I've been having. I'm really excited for you. It's great that you're cutting this demo -- it's been your dream forever.

Gwen: But it's not just my dream anymore. You know, because, you're in it. And we promised that we would share everything.

Will: Okay, fine. But we don't have to make my taking the GED the same as you cutting your first demo, because it's not.

Gwen: It is the same thing. I mean, it's both of us moving forward in our life. And when you do get the passing grade back, I get to make a big old deal about it, because that's my job, and I'm proud of you. But you are right. The record thing is going very fast, and to be honest with you, I wasn't sure if I would be able to handle it.

Will: What do you mean?

Gwen: Well, I mean, in the beginning, Adam was just this kind of selfish, you know, cocky know-it-all, and he treated you, me and Casey like we were in sixth grade. And he just kind of made me feel like I've felt my whole life. Like this talentless waste of time.

Will: Don't talk that way.

Gwen: It's true. He kind of just reminded me of my mom. You know, they both can't really see past themselves. The only interaction that, I mean, I would have with my mom in a given day was the two seconds where I'd be like, "Hey, Mom, don't drink." And she'd be like, "No, I am."

Will: You never really told me that.

Gwen: Nobody -- I don't think you know this -- nobody ever saw anything good in me until you came along. I mean, I never, I never believed in myself.

Will: That's not true. You knew you always had talent. That's what kept you going.

Gwen: No, music kept me going. You know, and I would listen to a record, and I just thought that if I could be that good, if I could be that talented, that if that many people loved me, then all the stuff that my mom said about me couldn't be true. But Adam never would have heard me if it weren't for you and Casey. And even though you might not be at the studio, you know, don't think for a second that I could do any of this without you, because you are absolutely everything to me. And I know what it feels like to love somebody now, and to be loved back.

Meg: I know what kind of man Craig Montgomery is. You don't need to lecture me like I'm clueless.

Paul: No, I'm just -- I'm warning you.

Meg: I don't need to be warned. He orchestrated that kiss at the Lakeview, and I saw through him. Dusty's brakes went out, and his hands were clean. I don't trust him for a moment. I don't trust him any more than you do.

Paul: Great, because if you did --

Meg: The only difference with Craig is he lets me know when he's using me. With you, I get a ten-second warning.

Paul: Don't compare me to Craig.

Meg: Then don't treat me like a child. In the ER, I make life and death decisions every day. I think I'm capable of handling Craig Montgomery.

Paul: He's lethal. Especially when it comes to people that he pretends to care about. Ask his daughter. Look at that relationship. Ask Rosanna. He put her in a coma. And if he had half a heart, he would have had the decency to kill her.

Meg: That's what this hatred for Craig is all about. Not just for staging that play for Johnny. After all this time, it's about Rosanna.

Judge: Mr. Donovan, you've been warned. Don't speak unless you're called on.

Dusty: Sorry, your honor. Would you please call on me so I can speak my piece? 'Cause it's obvious to me that being busted up bothers Dr. Montgomery much more than it does me.

Judge: You're referring to your injuries?

Dusty: Yes, your honor. Many injuries.

Judge: And what does that have to do with these proceedings?

Dusty: Scare tactics, your honor. Mr. Montgomery's way of saying, "Back off this hearing, or there's more where this came from."

Cassandra: Excuse me, but this is not a trial, and Mr. Donovan is not a witness.

Dusty: She's correct. Never a witness around when you need one. Right, Mr. Man with no fingerprints? 'Cause he's always using somebody elseís.

Cassandra: Your honor --

Dusty: I'll sit down and shut up. Just give Dr. Montgomery a chance to set the record straight.

ADA: Dr. Montgomery, have you anything further to add to your testimony?

Lucy: No.

Judge: In your own words, Dr. Montgomery, are you recanting your sworn statement?

Lucy: Yes. I am recanting my statement.

Cassandra: Your honor, since Dr. Montgomery is recanting the accusations she made in her deposition, there are no grounds to move to trial --

Dusty: She's recanting her accusations because she's scared of what her father might do to me.

Judge: Mr. Donovan, you promised to keep silent.

Dusty: How can I when you're about to let a guilty man go free? She's not talking because she grew up with a father who taught her what consequences mean the hard way.

Judge: There are also consequences for taking the court's time with unsubstantiated accusations. It wastes time and taxpayer money. This pretrial hearing is dismissed. With prejudice. Young lady, the next time you want to punish your father, forget the courts. Go see a therapist.

[Gavel bangs]

Dusty: I'm here, whatever you got planned. I'm ready for anything. Anything you got.

Coming up on "As the World Turns" --

Dusty: You promised me you'd go the distance on this.

Lucy: I saved your life, damn it.

Dusty: You put my son at risk. You hear me? You put my son at risk. He's free to now fight for my son in a custody battle.

Gwen: Who is it? Tell them to go away.

Will: I think you better come see for yourself.

Holden: What do you want from me, Jade? Thanks?

Jade: No, an explanation would be nice.

Holden: I don't think I owe you one.

Jade: I've only been a part of this family for a little while, but you owe Lily something.

Holden: I didn't ask you to lie for me.

Jade: But you didn't exactly come out with the truth, either.

Holden: So, why did you jump in and save me?

Jade: Because I saw you with that woman at Java and it seemed like you were having a very intimate conversation --

Holden: No, no, no, no, no. That's not what it was about. It was business.

Jade: Really? She didn't look like she raised horses.

Holden: Yeah, well, you're right about that. And this is something that I don't want Lily to know about.

Jade: Well, it's not something I want her to know about, either. That's why I didn't tell her. And when I saw that same woman at the Lakeview, I rushed Luke out of there as fast as I could, in case you'd show up.

Holden: Well, I appreciate that, Jade. And I'd appreciate it if you'd continue to keep this to yourself.

Paul: After everything you just said about the truth, I'm assuming -- I'm guessing that you want me to be as honest with you as I can be.

Meg: That's what I always want.

Paul: Well, I'll try. I do love you. And I don't want to lie to you. There's a part of me that will never get over Rosanna.

Meg: I think I already knew that.

Paul: When Craig ran her off of the road, I held her in my arms, and I could feel her heart beating. And I could feel her breathing. And I asked her to please stay with me. And she couldnít. She was gone. She was gone, and she is never coming back, and Craig did that.

Meg: I'm sorry.

Paul: No, I am. I'm sorry, because I knew she was in danger, Meg. And I didn't do enough. I didn't protect her.

Meg: You tried your best.

Paul: No, I didn't try my best. And for the longest time, I didn't think I was ever going to feel anything. Anything. Then you came along. And now I know that there's a God, because I have a second chance.

Meg: You know, you're not the only one that feels like they got a second chance. I did to.

Paul: I know. When I say to you that I'm never going to get over Rosanna, what I mean to you -- what I mean to say is -- look, I'm not going to forget that moment when life went out of her. I saw firsthand what Craig is capable of. And now I will do my best. I'm prepared to fight to the death to protect you. I'm never going to let anything bad happen to you. I am never going to let Craig Montgomery take anybody that I love away from me again.

Meg: Oh, Paul -- if there's one thing you should have learned, it's that you can't control anything.

Paul: I can try.

Meg: Even then, there are no guarantees. Look, I can't play by your rule book. I tried it once and it didn't work for any of us. Not Jennifer or the baby, not you or me.

Paul: Yeah, it's different now. Because Lucy has what it takes. Lucy can stand up and put her own father in jail. I've got to go.

Meg: Where are you going?

Paul: I'm going to the courthouse.

Meg: No, Paul, just leave this alone.

Paul: Hey, no, come on, look, I want to be there. I want to see it with my own eyes when Craig is finally shackled and dragged off for the rest of his unnatural life. I will finally be able to breathe the first breath that I've taken in months. And I promise you, when he's finally gone, I'll be able to show you just how wonderful life is.

ADA: Dr. Montgomery, I'm not sure what just happened here, or what you believe you accomplished.

Lucy: All I can tell you is that once I got into the courtroom -- everything was different somehow.

ADA: Our chances for going to trial would have been outstanding if you'd stood behind your statement!

Lucy: Okay, but there's always a chance that the wrong person ends up getting persecuted.

ADA: Well, you should have thought about that before you wasted the court's time.

Lucy: Dusty, I know what you must be thinking.

Dusty: Oh, Lucy, you have no idea.

Lucy: I just thought that I --

Dusty: We had him. He had you kidnapped, buried alive, and you just let him walk.

Lucy: Look, if it kept you from getting killed, it was the right thing to do.

Dusty: Is that what you think you did here today?

Lucy: Look, don't you? I mean, you're lucky that you got off with just a broken arm in that accident. Next time, who knows?

Dusty: You made it possible for a next time.

Lucy: Not since I dropped the case against him.

Dusty: Nonsense! With your father, there's always been a next time. Don't you get it? You promised me you'd go the distance on this.

Lucy: I saved your life, damn it!

Dusty: You put my son at risk. You hear me? You put my son at risk. He's free to now fight for my son in a custody battle.

Lucy: You don't know that.

Dusty: I saw what went down here today. That's what I saw.

Lucy: Well, hey, look, we'll hire the best lawyer. We'll get Tom Hughes. He's off my father's payroll.

Dusty: No! Your father's payroll? Nobody's working for your father -- no one's going against your father. He's got them all paid off.

Lucy: Okay, there has to be some way that we can keep him from going after Johnny.

Dusty: No, we had our chance. This was it. Our only chance.

Lucy: Dusty, I am sorry. But I love you too much to risk your life.

Dusty: I told you I could take care of myself.

Lucy: You don't know that. You could get in an elevator and have it drop ten floors. You could walk across the street and get hit by a car. All this could happen with my father behind bars.

Dusty: Behind bars, your father can't touch my son. That's where I needed your help. That's where you let me down.

Lucy: Dusty, wait!

Craig: Sweetness, I had no idea how much you love me until today.

Lucy: Look, your love is worth nothing to me.

Craig: You don't mean that.

Lucy: Test me. The next time you put your key in your ignition, maybe you'll be the one who ends up with a broken arm, or worse.

Craig: You would never --

Lucy: Yeah. Yeah, you're right, because I'm a doctor. I took an oath. "First, do no harm."

Craig: Right. That's not the only reason --

Lucy: No, the only thing that keeps you safe is that I am not, in any way, my father's daughter. So please don't flatter yourself about why I didn't push this case.

Craig: Lucy --

Lucy: I hate you. You make me sick.

Craig: Fiery, like her mother. I'll get her back on my side. I always do.

Paul: Lucy, your father just walked out of here. What the hell happened?

Luke: I thought you couldn't wait to get home and feed your face?

Jade: Sorry.

Luke: What's with you today? First you want to go to the Lakeview, where we never go, and then we get there, and you can't stop thinking about my mom's pie. So now, you have the pie and you're not hungry?

Jade: It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind.

Luke: And give me whiplash at the same time? Come on, Jade. Something happened today, and it's really bugging you.

Jade: Yeah, but somebody told me it's none of my business.

Lisa: Look, I know you feel like you have missed so much, but it's nothing compared to our missing you. It must have seemed like a blink to you. But darling, to us, it was just endless. It really was. And now you're here, and I'm so glad. We've got thanksgiving to look forward to, and then there's the Christmas bazaar. It wouldn't be the same without you.

Lily: Thanks. I just feel so out of the loop.

Lisa: Oh. Well, let me help you on that.

Lily: Okay.

Lisa: Okay. Well, no, I didn't have a love affair that I can remember. Or worth mentioning --

Lily: Ah, neither did I.

Lisa: Oh, no! [Laughter] Oh, wait, here's something. Here's something that has happened. The renovation of the gym.

Lily: Oh, okay.

Lisa: It's just fabulous. I've ordered all kinds of equipment. State of the art. And I have hired this absolutely marvelous trainer. You must give him a workout.

Lily: That's subtle, Lisa. Very subtle.

Lisa: Oh, well, Honey, I didn't mean it like that. No -- look, Lily, I know that it certainly was not your fault that when you were pregnant, you fell into a coma. But I must say, that is one heck of a way to just pack on the pounds.

Lily: Oh, that makes me feel much better. Thanks.

[Gwen humming]

Will: Encore.

Gwen: You want another jingle, or what we did before that?

Will: I'll take one of each.

Gwen: No, you owe me a dinner first. And I'm hungry.

Will: Okay. But first you have to promise me that you're still going to love me when you're rich and famous.

Gwen: I thought I got rich when I married you? Oh, my God, you were lying? I'm leaving.

[Will laughs]

Will: All right, famous, then?

Gwen: Sure.

Will: When are we ever going to see each other? We're not going to have any time. You're going to be on the road. When will I see you?

Gwen: You can ride on the bus.

Will: Gee, thanks.

Gwen: Well, when you're in school, I'll just have to have my tour manager fly me home to see you between concerts and hanging out with my groupies.

Will: Groupies? There's male groupies?

Gwen: Mm-hmm.

Will: That's it, I'm riding the bus. Hell, I'm driving it.

Gwen: Oh, yeah, your mom would love that.

Will: Well, I'll invite her along for the ride.

Gwen: If you do that, I will divorce you.

Will: What, can't you see Barbara coming along for the ride, asking us to stop at every outlet mall on the way to the stadium?

Gwen: Oh, yeah, I think there's a song in that.

Will: No, I don't think so.

Gwen: Cashmere-clad in a polyester place.

Will: Not so much.

Gwen: No, not really. So, I guess I'll just have to write about you.

Will: There's not enough for a whole song.

Gwen: Yeah, you are really one-dimensional. You're my inspiration, you know that.

Will: Really?

Gwen: I write every song about you.

[Knocking at door]

Will: Who is it? You know what? I bet it's Adam. He's firing you. You're done. You're done in this town. You're never gonna work again, kid.

Gwen: You're a jerk.

Will: Adam, whatever you want, now is not the time. Gwen?

Gwen: Uh-oh. Am I fired? It's history?

Will: It's not Adam.

Gwen: Who is it? Tell them to go away.

Will: I think you'd better come see for yourself. Make it fast.

Will: Gwen, are you coming?

Gwen: Yes! Our friends have the worst timing.

Iris: Hey, Gwennie! What's shaking, Baby?

Gwen: Oh, my God, Mom.

Lisa: Darling, give yourself a break. It's not like youíre just lying around ordering pizza and beer and ice cream.

Lily: I know, I know, I know.

Lisa: Now, you've got to just learn to be patient about this, and just concentrate on being in the arms, the loving arms of your family and your wonderful, handsome, adoring husband. How are things between you and Holden?

Lily: Hmm? What do you mean?

Lisa: Well, I mean in the bedroom department.

Lily: Lisa!

Lisa: Well, you know.

Lily: Please.

Lisa: Honey, don't be stupid, I'm serious about this. Please, please don't let this losing weight thing stand in the way of true love between you and your hubby.

Lily: Let's get back to the books, shall we, please?

Lisa: Yep, I can, if it turns you on.

Lily: I know. I believe me, I know what I have to do. I'm having a bit of a difficult time getting started. I don't know why, but --

[Lisa laughs]

Lisa: Oh, come on, Lily, stop that.

Lily: What?

Lisa: I mean, hey, just because she's a pretty lady doesn't mean that -- you, you are the most lucky woman in the whole world. You have this fabulous home to go home to. The rest is just window dressing.

Holden: Tea, we have to get out of here. That's my wife in there.

Tea: Of course. The last thing we want is to be seen together.

Holden: I know a place we can go.

Meg: Paul, hey, it's me. Look, I know you think we settled something, but -- I'm sorry, I donít. In fact, I think this has kind of taken us even further apart. And maybe, maybe things will change once Craig is in jail, but not for me. So, please call me. I really want to find a way to work things out.

Craig: Here, here, allow me to help.

Paul: Your father's strutting out of here free as a bird. What, they just let him go? There's no charges?

Lucy: Yes, they did.

Paul: You testified that he tried to kidnap you! When his own daughter perceives him as a threat, how does something like that happen?

Lucy: I didn't testify.

Paul: Lucy, you gave a deposition.

Lucy: And I recanted.

Paul: Did Craig threaten you?

Lucy: He didn't have to. You saw what he did to Dusty. You saw his arm. It could have been worse, Paul. I couldn't stand up in open court and testify against my father. It would have been signing Dusty's death warrant.

Paul: You don't know that.

Lucy: Yes, I do. In not so many words, my dad warned me that more so called accidents could happen. I couldn't take that chance.

Paul: You have no idea what you've done.

Dusty: Barbara! Chaz? "Now that Craig is no longer a threat, Chaz is taking Johnny to the Children's Museum while I run a few errands. See you back here later to celebrate."

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Iris: Home never felt so good.

Katie: Oh, I just finished the new pages for the re-release of "Oakdale Confidential" -- or, as I like to call it, "Sweet Revenge."

Lucy: Dusty, what are you doing?
