Casey: All right, you know what I need here -- yes! And I'll see you another $50. Oh, all right. You are so bluffing. Another $50. Yes! Hi --

Maddie: Hi. Who are you talking to?

Craig: Good morning.

Margo: Good morning.

Craig: Well, isn't this the time where you're supposed to say, "How are you feeling?" Show some concern?

Margo: Oh, yes. How are you feeling?

Craig: Like hell. It's an improvement. Now you're supposed to say, "Itís really great that you got your sense of humor back."

Margo: Hmm.

Craig: Maybe this is official business. Oh, I see. It must be that you're here to tell me that all your police cronies have done a wonderful job to put an airtight case together to prosecute Dusty Donovan to the full extent of the law. Now, that would be better than flowers.

Margo: Yeah, wouldn't it? I know your deep respect for the law. But I know you wouldn't want someone to get off on a technicality.

Craig: I want Dusty Donovan to rot in his prison cell for the rest of his life.

Margo: Right.

Craig: And it's not for revenge. It's for Johnny's sake. And I'm not the only one who feels that way. Dusty was denied bail because the judge felt, because of the custody case, that he would be a flight risk.

Margo: Well, my, my. For a man in ICU, you are remarkably up-to-date.

Craig: Yeah, I have to be. I owe it to my son.

Margo: And there isn't anything you wouldn't do for him, is there?

Craig: You know, Margo, your whole moral superiority thing -- nothing's going to change the fact that I just got to raise my right hand and testify that that man pointed a gun at my chest and pulled the trigger. And after that, no one is going to want him raising a son.

Margo: There. That, that, that is the part I love. You have this terrible, terrible thing happen to you, yet in the end, you get exactly what you want.

Dusty: So Jessica is not coming down 'til later?

Jack: That's right.

Dusty: Well, no more interrogation. Not without my attorney.

Jack: It's not interrogation, it's a favor. Don't make me regret it. I'll be right outside.

Dusty: I thought we said our good-bye.

Lucy: I know we did.

Dusty: You don't have to put yourself through this. I understand.

Lucy: No, you don't understand. I was wrong about everything.

Carly: And because I've been so cranky, you get to have anything you want. You can have hot chocolate. You can even have a big bowl of broccoli --

Sage: Mommy!

Carly: Then you can have two big bowls of broccoli. Sage, I'm so sorry that I shouted at you like that. I just -- I've been worried about something and something's been in my mind, but I know I should never take it out on you.

Simon: Ah, look at this. How is this? My two favorite girls in the whole world. How are you this fine morning? Good?

Carly: Yeah, we're peachy.

Simon: Good.

Carly: Top of the world.

Simon: Hey, listen Sage, there's some rolls over there and I can't decide which one I want. Can you do my a favor? Pick one out for me and grab one for yourself.

Sage: Can I, Mommy?

Carly: Yeah. Sure. I'll be sitting down over there, okay?

Sage: Thanks.

Carly: Really? Well, that's nice of you. Thank you. Well, maybe that's because I didn't sleep a wink last night because your ex-girlfriend might be turning us in for grand theft to my ex-husband. And then sleep-deprived and full of worry. I shouted at the most wonderful child in the entire world. Nothing like being a rotten mother in addition to a wanted criminal.

Simon: Okay, you worry too much.

Carly: Simon, do you have any idea how much I wish I had never met you?

Simon: Okay, why don't you believe me when I say that you have nothing to worry about?

Carly: Have you noticed? Have you been paying attention to anything that's been going on around you?

Simon: Vienna is not going to go to the police. She's bluffing.

Carly: You know that vein that was bulging in her forehead when she was shouting at you last night?

Simon: Okay, listen. I know Vienna very well, all right? And if there's one thing I know about her, she's all talk and no action.

Vienna: Good morning, Detective. Surprised to see me?

Jack: Bowled over. Excuse me.

Vienna: Well, excuse my appearance. At this brutal hour of the morning, I must look a sight.

Jack: I think you know exactly how you look. So what is it I can do for you?

Vienna: I think it's more what I can do for you. I would like to report a robbery.

Carly: Oh, now I feel so much better. I've been reassured by Simon Frasier. I mean, look at all the other times that you told me everything was going to be all right. And just like that, we're out of money, the building's going to collapse, we're being chased by a sadistic loan shark, I'm in car with a prince who thinks he's Dale Earnhardt, Jr. --

Simon: Stop being so negative, okay? You and I, we dodged every one of those bullets.

Carly: Simon, when you are in the first circle of hell, and then you move on to the second one, and then the third, and the fourth -- that is not dodging a bullet. That is not progress. Hey, Sweetie.

Simon: Hey.

Sage: Simon?

Simon: Yes.

Sage: Do you like cinnamon or chocolate better? Chocolate?

Sage: Hot chocolate.

Simon: Cinnamon, I think.

Sage: Me, too.

Simon: Perfect. Okay, listen, listen, listen. I know Vienna and she's not going to do or say anything to hurt me. We have too many memories.

Carly: Simon, Katie has, like, truckloads of memories. And she wrote a book trying to nail you to the wall.

Simon: Okay, there is another reason why Vienna will not say a thing, okay. She's in a catch-22.

Carly: How so?

Simon: She knows she can't tell anybody about that diamond. Because the prince who gave it to her is her meal ticket and she can't risk him finding out that she introduced him to the ex-lover who stole her jewels, all right? Because Vienna, above all else, is a pragmatist.

Carly: Oh, oh, so now I'm relying on the fact that Vienna is a money-grubbing, self-serving, high-priced gold-digger?

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

Vienna: You see, Detective, you were right. The crown jewels of Leonia were stolen that night. The ones that are in Prince Adolpho's vault are fake.

Jack: I thought you said those jewels were checked by security every time they were returned to the vault?

Vienna: Detective, I lied.

Jack: To police. Wow, that can be serious.

Vienna: I only lied to protect Simon Frasier. Once again, I was led astray by my foolish, foolish heart.

Jack: I see, and now your heart wants revenge?

Vienna: I don't think my motives concern you.

Jack: No? The way I see it, you're only telling me all this to get back at Simon.

Vienna: I think it would be simple to find out if I were lying, wouldn't it? But I think you know I'm telling the truth. It's just that you don't want it to be true.

Jack: Well, putting Simon away, that would make my week. Actually, my year.

Vienna: I know, but the case doesn't end there, does it? You know, common sense tells us that this wasn't a one-man job. Think you need to understand that you will have absolutely no input about the conduct of this investigation.

Vienna: So there will be one.

Jack: Oh, sure. Absolutely. Fill this out and I'll investigate.

Vienna: I'm afraid I have to ask. You're not going to try to protect your wife, are you?

Jack: I don't have a wife.

Vienna: Because she's into this up to her eyeballs. When Simon was trying to get me drunk, Carly was out there distracting Prince Adolpho. And you, out of everybody, should know exactly how distracting she can be --

Jack: Who exactly are you going after here? Simon or Carly?

Vienna: I just want to see justice served. So where do we go from now?

Jack: That's entirely up to you. You can just go back to your hotel. Or its dollar days at the outlet mall if you want to update your wardrobe.

Vienna: You know, I know I will be sleeping much easier knowing that I finally did the right thing. And I think that you will, too.

Jack: By the book. As always.

Vienna: I could have reached out to anyone in this department. But I felt that you were the right man for this job.

Jack: Damn it, Carly. What have you done now?

Casey: Man, I hate it when people catch me talking to myself. I was just checking my grades online. And I saw my grade and I had a little reaction.

Maddie: Oh, well, that's great. I mean, at least you were actually studying when you blew me off that night.

Casey: Whoa, whoa, I didn't blow you off.

Maddie: Whoa, whoa, I was joking.

Casey: Well, you better have been.

Maddie: How about we get some light in here? It's a little like a cave.

Casey: Oh, okay.

Maddie: It's depressing.

Casey: Sure.

Maddie: Whoa, did you pull another all-nighter?

Casey: Yeah, I want you to be here.

Maddie: Really?

Casey: Yeah, why? What's that supposed to mean?

Maddie: I'm not trying to get you to say something, this is a real question. I mean, if you want to hang out with your college friends and you think I'm in the way, you -- please tell me, I will understand.

Casey: Mad, Mad, maybe I'm a little fried from saying up all night, but I am glad you're here.

Elwood: Sorry. Remind me to fix that. Hey, did you win?

Maddie: Win?

Casey: Ah, no, you did. Yeah, see, we had a bet going. He bet that I was going to get an "a" on my test and I thought I was going to get a "b" and -- and you won, Dude.

Elwood: Oh.

Maddie: You bet against yourself?

Elwood: Well, yeah, he's always underestimating himself. I'm going to walk over here now.

Casey: Yeah, I'll pay you later, Dude. Hey, since I got my paper done and I don't have class today, do you want to go shopping since we never went shopping?

Maddie: Sure. It's up to you, though. I mean, if you're up for it.

Casey: No, yeah.

Maddie: Great. Okay. Bye, Elwood.

Elwood: You told her I was betting you about your grades?

Casey: Yeah. Hey, can I borrow your poli sci notes?

Elwood: Yeah, sure. Okay, so what happened?

Casey: All right, so last night, about 3:30 in the morning, I was so far down, I couldn't catch a break. Then, straight flush. I'm rolling in it.

Craig: I'm your brother. A man shot me. I almost died, and you're on my case?

Margo: I merely pointing out how this whole shooting thing could work out well for you.

Craig: You know who it's going to work out well for? Johnny. My child.

Margo: Your child. What about your other child? What about Lucy? Have you once thought about what you've put her through since you've been back here?

Craig: Have you asked Dusty what he put her through? She was there, Margo. Arm out of the way. What a coincidence.

Craig: What is -- what is going on here?

Margo: You know, one of these days, and soon, Lucy and I are going to have a little conversation about what happened. How it was that she turned out to be there at the precise moment that that happened.

Craig: You can go. You can go. Please.

Margo: No, no, no, no, no, no, Craig. I'm not done. I have other questions. So how is it that father of the year didn't ask how she was doing? How she's holding up?

Craig: She's fine. And after all this is over, I'm going to have both of my kids back.

Margo: Oh, two bird with one bullet, huh?

Craig: Margo? You're my sister. You're the one person on this earth who's supposed to know who I am.

Margo: Yeah, I thought I did. Once.

Craig: I haven't changed. I know I made mistakes. I don't deny it. But I love my children and I would never, ever hurt them.

Craig: So how can you take his side against mine?

Margo: When you talked about how well this whole custody suit was going for you, you didn't look happy. You looked triumphant.

Dusty: Have a seat. Please, listen to me.

Lucy: I came here to talk to you.

Dusty: Me first. Sit down.

Lucy: What is it?

Dusty: When you're in jail, you got a lot of time to think. I think about my son and I think about you. I understand you have a sense of duty to your father. And to my son. Maybe even to me.

Lucy: The duty?

Dusty: Yeah, to do what's right. You think Johnny should be with me, so you try helping me out. You love your father, so you try to get through to him. It's all going to tear you apart, you understand? So your first instincts are and I mean it. I don't want you to worry about me. I shot your father. I'm not the man you thought I was.

Lucy: I think that's the most I've ever heard you say at one time.

Dusty: And you're a good person. Your father doesn't deserve you and I certainly don't deserve you.

Lucy: So you finally figured that out?

Dusty: Don't cry.

Lucy: I wonít. So you've had your say, you know, now it's my turn. First, I will never, ever condone what you did.

Dusty: Why should you?

Lucy: Yeah, well, it was a lot easier when I didn't have the whole story.

Dusty: What does that mean? What are you trying to say?

Lucy: I'm saying I was right all along. My father was behind it. You shot him because he wanted you to.

Dusty: Your father wanted me to kill him?

Lucy: No, there's a big difference between shoot and kill. He was setting you up and you fell for it.

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

Maddie: I cannot believe you did this. This is every Alfred Hitchcock movie ever. And I haven't seen "The Paradine Case."

Casey: So, this Fridayís pretty much planned then, huh?

Maddie: You know what? As much as this means to me? It means even more to me that you want to sit and watch them with me.

Casey: Eh, it's a strategy. You know, guys like to have their girlfriends scared, so they can hold them and comfort them.

Maddie: Mm-hmm. Strategy.

Casey: Yeah, that was. But this isnít.

Maddie: Casey. What is this? You did to -- this is too much. You need to take it back.

Casey: No, I canít. Because it's engraved.

Maddie: This is amazing, but it's so --

Maddie: But I do. And I know where you got this money from.

Casey: You do?

Maddie: Yeah, you can't keep spending your book and food money on me. Your parents give you that money for college.

Casey: Well, you don't have to worry about because the money I bought this with -- I earned it.

Maddie: How?

Dusty: I don't understand --

Lucy: It's not easy to understand. Most people don't think the way my father does. Most people don't put other people through living hell to get what they want -- you know, the good daughter that I am, I went by his room at the hospital last night. He wasn't alone, he was talking with Emily.

Dusty: Mm-hmm. And?

Lucy: Oh, it was great. Just what you want to find out about you dad. He had planned the whole thing. He pushed every button he could think of to get you to shoot made sure that Emily switched the gun's bullets with blanks. I mean, he planned all this. He got you to shoot him. He made sure that you would shoot him, and so you would be in jail and he could have Johnny and not only that, he had Emily come and find me and let me know that you had a gun. And that, and that, you were going to make sure that you were going to meet him. And he wanted me to see it happen. He wanted me to see you shoot him!

Dusty: I'm sorry he did that. Are you sure you heard right?

Lucy: You think I'm making this up? Who would make this up except for him?

Dusty: I didn't shoot him with a blank. I shot him with a bullet. Not a blank --

Lucy: But none of that matters. What matters is now we can do something. You were set up.

Dusty: Well, I guess you were right from the start. That he played me.

Lucy: I don't want to be this right. I mean, now we can do something about it. You're not much help to me in here.

Dusty: Lucy? None of what you said changes what I did.

Lucy: You know what? When you're at home and with Johnny and my father is paying for what he did, then we can have a nice, long chat about the ethics of the situation. But don't think I'm a pushover. If you ever try to shoot my father again, I wash my hands of you.

Dusty: Thank you.

Lucy: Don't thank me yet. Wait until I've done something. Wait until I make my father pay for what he did.

Simon: Carly, let us not forget that we got rid of the one piece of evidence that connect us to those jewels.

Carly: After everyone saw me wearing it.

Simon: And in less than a few hours, you will be wearing an exact replica that you can prove to the world as a fake.

Carly: You know what? I don't think that's going to be enough. I think that will just make Jack more curious. And Simon, I cannot lose my children because of this. Oh, hi.

Simon: Hey.

Carly: Oh, my and thanks.

Simon: You sit down here. Take a seat. This looks delicious. I will not let anything happen to you, okay? Sage, this looks incredible. What did you get? Um, cinnamon. Perfect choice. Listen, I got to eat and run. You have fun with your mom, okay? I'll see you soon. Bye.

Sage: He's fun.

Carly: Yeah. You have to watch out for that.

Sage: Huh?

Carly: Nothing. Nothing, just enjoy your roll, okay?

Sage: Mommy? There's a lady outside -- she was looking for food in the garbage.

Carly: Oh, no. Oh, Honey.

Sage: I'm not really hungry. Can I give this to her?

Carly: Do you know what you are? You're just the best kid in the entire world. Yes, you may give that to her. Grab a napkin, okay?

Jack: Hey, gorgeous. You're a vision in pink. Carly, what's up?

Sage: I'm giving this to that lady.

Carly: Hi. I'm going to go with her. I'm going to keep an eye on her okay?

Sage: This is for you.

Jack: Sage is fine. Mary's harmless.

Carly: You know her?

Jack: Yeah, she's here a lot and so's most of the department. We watch out for her whenever we can. Don't worry. Benson, Benson, keep an eye on Sage for a minute.

Carly: Okay. Well, I have to go anyway.

Jack: Carly, do you know what this is?

Carly: Um, no, should I?

Jack: I think so. It's a theft report, filed by Vienna Hyatt. She says that you helped Simon steal the prince's jewels.

Carly: So, if she wrote I which --

Jack: Listen to me. Because I'm only going to ask you this once. And I'd think carefully before you answer it, knowing your life depends on it. Is this true?

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

Jack: Where's the diamond necklace Simon gave you?

Simon: Perfect. And thank you for getting it done so quickly as well.

Mary: This is for you.

Adam: I lent you $1,000 yesterday to pay off your debts. And today, you buy your girlfriend presents and you're lying about where you got the money. So, why don't you just go and tell me whatever it is you're not telling?

Lucy: No matter what you hear, what you see me do, I'm on your side. Promise you won't forget that.

Dusty: Your father made a big mistake.

Lucy: Yeah, you think? You think talking to Emily about this was a good idea? Or, even enlisting her in the first place. I need an accomplice. Here's a totally unbalanced woman with a big mouth. I'd choose her.

Dusty: He definitely underestimated you.

Lucy: Feeling angry feels great. I am not longer torn in two. I am focused.

Dusty: What are you going to do with all that focus?

Lucy: I'm working on that. But my main advantage is that my father doesn't know I know. He thinks I saw you shot him.

Dusty: You did.

Lucy: He thinks I'm reeling. He thinks I'm vulnerable. He thinks I'm a fool.

Dusty: That you are not.

Lucy: Doesn't matter. What matters is, that he thinks his little girl's going to need a daddy. He's going to trust me with his life. So, I'm giving you fair warning. No matter what you hear, what you see me do, I'm on your side. Promise you won't forget that?

Dusty: You're going to do all this for me?

Lucy: For you, for Johnny, and for me.

Dusty: Are you going to listen to me when I tell you its dangerous?

Lucy: Nothing's going to happen to me. Something's going to happen to him.

Margo: What exactly do you think you're doing?

Craig: Yes, and I want it done today. Right. Lawyers. They always have an excuse not to do what I want them to do.

Margo: Yeah, like obeying the law?

Craig: Need I remind you, that Dusty not only broke the law, but a fairly important commandment.

Margo: Thou shalt not cross Craig Montgomery.

Craig: Well, I guess my near-death experience didn't change you at all.

Margo: Right back at you, Brother. So, he's going to make it?

Resident: Well, the fact that he's still alive is amazing. Walking, talking -- man, you beat the odds.

Craig: I want to go home.

Margo: Don't you just wish that you could put money on him?

Craig: I want to go home now.

Resident: Yeah, me, too. But it isn't going to happen any time soon.

Craig: Well, then get Bob Hughes in here, I'll talk to him.

Margo: Well, I think he's trying to intimidate you.

Resident: It won't work. As much as our entire staff would love to be saying goodbye.

Craig: Well, then how about if I was to go home in a care of a relative?

Margo: Oh, Dear, look at the time. I have so much Christmas shopping yet to do. Very nice to see you, Doctor. Always a pleasure to spend time with you.

Craig: Come on, Margo, don't do this.

Margo: Craig, like it or not, you're going to have some down time. You might want to use that time to think about what kind of father would be right for Johnny. And if you really think you're the man.

Maddie: Casey, these cost a ton and I -- you just cut back working at Crash --

Casey: Look, I said don't worry about it, okay?

Maddie: I know, but how can you afford to buy something like this?

Casey: Because I just -- I can, all right? I've been working with Adam on Gwen's demo.

Maddie: It's done already?

Casey: No, but he gave me an advance. You know, that's how they do it in L.A.

Maddie: Okay, maybe you should keep your advance until or maybe you just don't like it, take it back --

Maddie: No, I love it.

Casey: So, then, stop thinking about the money. And think about me.

Maddie: I already do. A lot.

Casey: Good. And the feeling is mutual.

Adam: Attention shoppers, there's a special on public displays of affection in aisle three.

Casey: Hey, Adam.

Adam: I wasn't interrupting anything, was I?

Maddie: Hi, Adam. Look at my beautiful bracelet.

Adam: Very nice.

Maddie: Yes, it's beautiful. And I have you to thank for it.

Jack: Carly, is it true?

Carly: Let me ask you a question, Jack. When that little tramp dragged herself to the station, did you demand that she tell you the truth?

Jack: Answer the question, please.

Carly: Or, did you just take what she says to face value because you wanted it to be true?

Jack: What?

Carly: You heard me.

Jack: And another quoting you should mention tactics. Like the best defense is a good offense.

Carly: If you think I should be harassed, you should've asked another cop to come down here because you cannot be objective.

Jack: Yeah, I'm not getting off the point. Is it true? Yes or no?

Carly: I won't even dignify that accusation with a response.

Jack: Maybe not -- but I've already got my answer.

Carly: And what does that mean?

Jack: It means I'm moving on to question number two. Where's the diamond necklace Simon gave you?

Simon: Oh, wow, this is great. That is perfect. Perfect. And thank you for getting it done so quickly as well.

Jeweler: Always happy to oblige a good customer, Mr. Frasier.

Simon: Ah, but you don't remember my name, do you?

Jeweler: Why, I've never laid eyes on you.

Simon: It's always a pleasure to deal with a professional. Here. You'll find that most rewarding. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Jeweler: You know, I think I will.

Vienna: Knew what?

Simon: I knew you'd come crawling back.

Jessica: Maybe you didn't understand. That was yesterday. I allowed you to talk to Dusty. You don't ever talk to him again without talking to me first.

Lucy: Well, you won't have to worry about it again. You shoot a man in cold blood, and you don't see what's wrong with it?

Jessica: Good-bye, Lucy.

Lucy: You just remember what I said. Forever.

Jessica: Lucy. What was that all about? And what was she doing in here?

Dusty: Jack set it up.

Jessica: Okay, I need to have a long conversation with Jack about procedure --

Dusty: Just let it go. It's not that big a deal.

Jessica: I decide what is and isn't a big deal. And talking to the victim's daughter is a very big deal.

Dusty: Well, like she said. It's not going to happen again.

Jessica: What's going on here, Dusty?

Dusty: Nothing.

Jessica: You talk to Craigís daughter without checking with me?

Dusty: I guess I didn't see what harm it could do.

Jessica: She saw you shoot her father, he almost died. It didn't occur to you that she might have come here to help him nail you

Dusty: As a matter of fact, that did cross my mind.

Casey: Come on, mad, don't get him started about producing, he'll never stop.

Maddie: Oh, I'm interested, though. Especially since you are working together.

Adam: Yeah. Us working together. It's very interesting.

Maddie: Yes, and also the advance helped pay for my beautiful bracelet.

Adam: Really? That's great.

Maddie: Yes, it's more than great. I feel like Jean Harlow in "Dinner at Right."

Casey: No one ever knows what she's talking about, Dude. Come on, Maddie, we are going to go see a movie, right?

Adam: Sorry, case, but that advance I gave, that's for working, right?

Casey: Yeah, but --

Adam: It's time to work.

Casey: But Maddie and I --

Maddie: Yeah, I don't want you to get in trouble with the boss, okay? I have to go home anyway. Bye, Adam.

Adam: Okay, what the hell is going on?

Casey: Look, I don't know why you're so bent out of shape?

Adam: You don't? I lent you $1,000 yesterday to pay off your debts. Today, you buy your girlfriend presents and you're lying about where you got the money. So why don't you just go and tell me whatever it is you're not telling me?

Vienna: One thing I never, ever need to worry about -- your ego.

Simon: Well, if you've come to apologize, I accept.

Vienna: Do you know what I did this morning?

Simon: Regretted what you said last night?

Vienna: I went down to the police station. And I had a very nice chat with Detective Snyder.

Simon: Really? Well, listen, be careful not to operate heavy machinery after talking to him.

Vienna: Oh, well, it was a fascinating conversation. All about how you stole Prince Adolpho's diamonds. With Carly's help, of course.

Simon: Well, listen, you didn't say anything, did you?

Vienna: Oh, it's nothing.

Simon: Well, you shouldn't have. Don't you see?

Vienna: What, that you and the blonde will be spending time in jail?

Simon: No. No, you could get into some very big trouble. You see, it's against the law to file a false charge, Vienna.

Vienna: Right, your concern is very touching, but I'll worry about that tomorrow. Today, I am going to pour myself a glass of wine, light some candles and soak in a hot tub, thinking about you in prison. What a beautiful morning.

Carly: Why do you care about my necklace? What does that have to do with anything?

Jack: It has to do with what Katie said about Simon's M.O. -- that he liked to keep one jewel as a souvenir.

Carly: Well, that wouldn't be so, not this necklace.

Jack: Did you have it examined? Appraised?

Carly: It was a gift, Jack. I didn't have it examined. That would be pretty tacky, wouldn't it?

Jack: Also, it would have proved that it was one of the crown jewels of Leonia.

Carly: You think that I would waltz around town wearing stolen jewelry? Jewelry stolen from a prince? You think that I'm that stupid?

Jack: You seem to be asking a lot of questions instead of answering mine.

Carly: Okay. Well, I'll keep it really simple for you, then, Jack. I am not in possession of any stolen jewelry.

Homeless woman: That was delicious. Thank you.

Sage: Would you like anything else?

Homeless woman: No, Sweetheart, thank you. But maybe I could give you something.

Sage: You don't have to.

Homeless woman: I know. That's why I want to. I was down by the river yesterday looking for pretty rocks. And look what I found. This is for you.

[The homeless woman takes out of her pocket Carlyís necklace]

Casey: Besides, you know what? You're the one who told me I was neglecting her. So I did something nice for her.

Adam: You could have sent her a card. Maybe you could have afforded that.

Casey: I could afford what I got her.

Adam: How? You're broke. Or you said you were.

Casey: I was then, but I'm not now, okay? So just let it go.

Adam: Let it go? That fellow you owe money to -- is he just gonna let it go?

Casey: I paid him back. And I can pay you back, too --

Adam: How?! How can you pay me back one day later?

Casey: Look, if you don't want the money, that's fine, but I got stuff to do, so --

Adam: Are you gambling again?
