Barbara: Oh, Emma --

Emma: Is this a bad time?

Barbara: Oh, no, no, I was just kind of picking up after the whirlwind and the nanny took Johnny down so, please, come on in. Would you like some coffee or some tea?

Emma: No, no, no, thank you. This won't take long.

Barbara: I'm actually glad you called. I was going to stop by and see you today anyway.

Emma: Oh?

Barbara: To apologize, for my behavior yesterday at the wedding -- or almost was a wedding. I was very upset about what Meg did and I spoke out of turns at things I shouldn't have said.

Emma: Yes, we both did. We both did, Barbara. But I don't think that anyone was more upset than Meg. I heard her crying all night long.

Barbara: Did she give you any indication why she changed her mind?

Emma: Holden didn't tell you anything?

Barbara: No, no, but I don't think we have to worry. I'm sure we can get those two married.

Emma: That's not why I'm here, Barbara.

Barbara: What? I thought --

Emma: No, I came to ask you to use your influence with Paul. I want you to keep your son away from my daughter.

Meg: Hi.

Nurse #1: Hi, you're supposed to be on your honeymoon.

Meg: Yeah, well, there's not going to be a honeymoon.

Nurse #1: You're putting it off 'til the weather's warmer?

Meg: No, it's not happening. The wedding, the honeymoon, the marriage. It's all been cancelled permanently.

Nurse #1: What happened?

Meg: You know, I don't want to talk about it. So, if you don't need my help here, I'll go check supplies, make sure we're fully stocked. Okay?

Paul: Hi, I'm Meg Snyder’s fiancé. Have you seen her?

Nurse #1: She went that way.

Paul: Thank you. You didn't want me to marry Meg. I get that. But you didn't think things through.

Emily: What do you mean?

Paul: Well, you wanted to stop it. Did you think somehow that that would bring me back to you?

Emily: No, I don't want you. Not anymore.

Paul: That's too bad, Em. Because you've got me. Now you've got me as an enemy. You happy now?

Lucy: I don't understand.

Craig: I want you to pick up your baby brother and bring him to me.

Lucy: Why?

Craig: Why? How many times do I have to tell you, he is my son.

Lucy: Okay, he is also a toddler. And you're in the hospital. Why can't you just wait until you're released?

Craig: I'm released today, thanks to you.

Lucy: So you want me to bring him here?

Craig: That's right. So, the two of us can take him to Fairwinds together.

Lucy: You know what? Leaving me to have to take care of both of you. Look, Daddy, when I told the resident that I would be responsible for taking care of you, I didn't sign on to take care of both of you and Johnny.

Craig: So until you're well enough to the state of my health, or helping me get custody my son?

Lucy: Both. You were in critical condition a couple of days ago. And now, you want to take Johnny, that's just -- are you testing me?

Craig: Yes. As a matter of fact, I am.

Katie: Okay, good, there she is. Listen, all you have to do is look -- Henry, come on!

Henry: What if someone I know sees me?

Katie: You're dressed up as a clown, and a tall, ugly nurse. Why are you suddenly so concerned about wearing a goatee?

Henry: Just a second here. I was never ugly!

Katie: Okay, let's go.

Henry: What about her? How ugly is she?

Katie: Who?

Henry: This Vienna person. Simon doesn't want her. Mike doesn't want her.

Katie: She's not ugly.

Henry: Okay, what's wrong with her? Something has to be wrong with her.

Katie: Nothing is wrong with her!

Henry: Have you thought about that?

Katie: I'm willing to take that risk. Let's go.

Henry: Think this through for a second. What if the diamonds of Leonia are safely stashed in Leonia? I mean, the police don't seem too concerned.

Katie: Well, Vienna suddenly showed up in Oakdale, right after Jack called her to ask her about the diamonds. If it has nothing to do with the diamonds, what is she doing here?

Henry: Visiting friends?

Katie: No. Vienna knows something about Simon and those diamonds, and we're going to find out what it is.

Henry: We? You go ahead. I'm gonna stay right here.

Katie: Vienna does not like me any more than I like her. She does like tall, strong men.

Henry: Is that her over there? Well, maybe I could help you out just this once.

Carly: What did the nice lady give you, Sage?

Sage: A present. It's really pretty. And it's magic!

Jack: Sage, Sweetie, your mom and I are in the middle of something pretty important here. Do you mind if you show it to us later?

Sage: Okay, Daddy. But I'm bored.

Carly: Yeah, you know what? I have paper and pencils in here. Would you like to draw a picture for your daddy maybe?

Sage: Okay!

Carly: All right!

Simon: So what's the problem here, Jack?

Jack: I had some questions about Carly’s necklace.

Simon: Which are?

Jack: I asked you where you got the diamond.

Simon: And she said?

Carly: Of course, that I don't know.

Simon: There you go, here we go. There's your answer.

Jack: That's cute. Maybe you could tell me? Did you steal this?

Simon: All right, Jack. Katie's a pretty good writer, she's an okay writer, but don't believe everything you read.

Jack: I don't know if I believe Katie's book, but I believe what I see with my own eyes. You were broke and then you weren’t.

Simon: So maybe I should write a book about how I sold some real estate. You can read that too. If you're worried about this diamond, it's not from Leonia, okay?

Jack: Then you won't mind if I take it and have it analyzed.

Carly: You want the necklace, you can take it. Simon, help me take it off.

Simon: Listen, listen, wait a minute. I gave this to Carly as a present, you're not just taking it off with you.

Jack: But if it's stolen property --

Simon: That's a pretty big if. Jack, you're not taking the diamond.

Carly: I want Jack to take the diamond.

Simon: Why?

Carly: Because it'll prove, once and for all, that I'm not lying.

Simon: So he called you a liar?

Carly: No, no, he just --

Simon: No, he just doesn't believe you? So you asked her if the diamond was stolen and she said no. I mean what are you going to do, Jack?

Jack: What do you think?

Simon: Well, considering you were once upon a time married to her, I would say you should believe her.

Simon: Jack, if Carly says the diamond isn't stolen then it isn’t.

Jack: Problem with that is, Carly didn't say that, you did. And I don't take your word for anything.

Simon: Fine you're still not taking it.

Jack: And since when do you tell me what I can and can't do?

Carly: Oh, come on, you guys that's enough. All right?

Simon: Well, he is questioning you.

Jack: Yeah, that's all I'm doing. Questioning. I'm not arresting. To make an arrest, I need evidence. Hard evidence.

Simon: Yeah I know that.

Jack: Now, I can get a search warrant, but that would just make you look guilty.

Carly: It's okay.

Jack: Are you sure?

Carly: Yes.

Simon: Yeah, well, get the search warrant. That's a good idea. And since how I gave her the necklace --

Jack: Yeah, you gave it to her. She can do with it what she wants.

Simon: Fine, all right? It's up to you. What do you want to do?

Carly: Jack? Now or later makes no difference to me. But if it makes a difference to you --

Simon: We'll take the search warrant, yup, thanks.

Henry: Pardon me --

Vienna: Yes?

Henry: Wow.

Vienna: Oh. I thought you were European when you first spoke to me, but you're American?

Henry: No, no, no of course not. I was just -- how do you say? I was fitting in with my surroundings. I saw you from afar, and I was not prepared --

Vienna: Prepared for?

Henry: So close. Your beauty, it's -- it's dazzling.

Vienna: Oh, well thank you. But you've seen me?

Henry: On formal occasions, with the Prince of Leonia.

Vienna: Here?

Henry: Everywhere. I am S.P.D. of L. The special police division of Leonia.

Vienna: What exactly is --?

Henry: You've heard of the KGB, the CIA, the NSA? Yes?

Vienna: Yes. But I've never heard of --

Henry: Of course you've never heard of it. We keep our activities secret.

Vienna: Well, you certainly got here quickly.

Henry: I did? Yes, yes, I did! Yes.

Vienna: Did Detective Jack contact you?

Henry: Not exactly. We intercepted some of his communications.

Vienna: Wow, so you're here to take my statement?

Henry: Yes, I am. How about your phone number? In case I -- we need to get more details later.

Vienna: Of course. I'm ready and willing to give you everything you need. But I'm a little thirsty.

Henry: What would you like to drink? Another cocktail? You tell me.

Henry: One favorite drink coming right up. Quick. What's her favorite drink?

Katie: Anything that costs more than $500.

Henry: Okay, okay, come on. I've got to prime the pump here, Baby.

Katie: Okay. Just make sure I get my money's worth.

Henry: Yeah, you will.

Barbara: Paul chose Meg over Emily and Emily was acting out, causing trouble.

Emma: You're missing the point.

Barbara: No, I'm not missing the point at all. I heard you. You said that you want me to keep Paul away from Meg, now -- I hope that you're going to reconsider all of this because Meg is a very good person, and Paul loves her very much.

Emma: Oh, he does? How do you know that? Because of the way he always puts her first. I mean, have you ever seen him do that Barbara? I haven’t.

Barbara: Emma, you can't deny that they've been very happy together.

Emma: And Emily?

Barbara: That was all in the past.

Emma: And that is exactly where I want to keep it. I don't want my daughter going into an unhappy marriage because she had the bad luck of falling in love with your son.

Barbara: Okay, okay. I don't believe that my son has made your daughter unhappy. There have been a lot of outside influences here as well! Craig, Emily, Dusty as much as I love him --

Emma: Barbara, stop! Just stop it! Stop making excuses for Paul! He's a grown man.

Barbara: And Meg is a grown woman. So, when she changes her mind, and realizes she's made a mistake, I certainly hope you won't stand in the way.

Emma: That is exactly where I'll stand. Between my daughter and anything that I know will hurt her. So Barbara, keep Paul away from Meg -- or I will.

Lucy: Look, I know you miss Johnny, but maybe we should wait.

Craig: Wait? For what?

Lucy: If you could get a court order or something may make it easier --

Craig: I already have visitation rights to Johnny.

Lucy: But now Dusty's in jail, and Barbara is acting as the baby's guardian, so doesn't that change things?

Craig: It could. Yeah, I suppose you're right.

Emily: So Meg called off the wedding? I didn't realize --

Paul: Don't do that. That's when you do it. You wait until Meg is practically walking down the aisle. And that's when you do it. That's when you tell her a whole bunch things that, Emily, you had no business telling her.

Emily: She deserved to know the truth. It hurts being dumped right before your wedding, doesn't it?

Paul: I love her. Why couldn't you just be happy for me? Why couldn't you just accept things and move on?

Emily: I tried. You stood right here and talking about this special connection, this special bond we have.

Paul: Hey, I told you straight up that we do not have a future.

Emily: You made me think we did. You know what? Meg deserved to know your dirty little secret before she pledged to love, honor and cherish you.

Paul: My secret? You're the one who goaded Dusty into shooting Craig.

Meg: Paul? What are you doing?

Paul: Emily and I have some unfinished business.

Meg: Is that true?

Emily: No. No, I am definitely done with him.

Meg: Well, you heard the lady. Leave her alone.

Vienna: And were you guarding the prince on his trip to Monaco last month?

Henry: Oh, yes of course. We members of the S.P.D. of L must be near the prince at all times.

Vienna: Don't play with me after you've seen me naked.

Henry: I would never do that. Unless of course, you insisted.

Vienna: I just love your goatee. Maybe you and I could recreate that moment in Monaco -- and swim naked in the moonlight.

Henry: I know of a hot springs very near here.

Vienna: What is it?

Henry: I was just signaling to the bartender to bring us another bottle of champagne.

Vienna: Oh so we could take that with us when we go for our swim. A hot spring in the cold and the moonlight it makes me so -- hot.

Henry: Me too. But first, let us take care of this annoying business, quickly. What happened the night that you stayed with the prince and unfortunately, we'd been waiting for quite a while.

Vienna: I had a little bit too much champagne. That makes me very -- pliable.

Henry: Oh, yes? Does it?

Vienna: And so that's when I saw this awful man from my past. And I didn't -- Mikey! How wonderful to see an old friend. I've been so lonely. Enrique?

Henry: Just doing my job, moving along.

Mike: Henry? What are you doing? Why are you wearing that stupid beard?

Jack: You're acting like someone who's got something to hide.

Simon: No Jack, just someone who knows his rights.

Carly: Oh, Jack is not violating anyone's rights.

Simon: No, well he is accusing us of stealing the diamond. Based on what? I mean has the prince filed a complaint?

Jack: No.

Simon: No? So essentially, we're under suspicion because Katie and Vienna accused us?

Jack: That's part of it.

Simon: All right, all right. Here's a tip, Jack. Scorned women don't exactly make reliable witnesses.

Carly: Simon, stop it!

Simon: No, you know what? I think we should defend ourselves here, all right? What's your probable cause?

Carly: Jack's just doing his job. He doesn't have to take my word for anything -- not anymore. Jack, if you want the necklace, take it.

Jack: Simon's right. You don't have to cooperate without a court order. I'll be back when I have one. Bye, Honey.

Simon: It's always fun going head-to-head with the cops. I think we fooled him.

Carly: Will you stop it! Don't do that. Don't make fun of Jack.

Paul: We need to talk.

Meg: You need to stop bullying Emily. With you bullying her for what she said last night. I'm grateful to Emily for setting me straight about you.

Paul: Okay, but now please, you get to hear my side of the story.

Meg: I don't want to hear it! I am sorry I ever got involved with you, that I let myself be fooled by you.

Emily: I couldn't have said it better myself.

Paul: Hey, nobody's talking to you.

Emily: I know, I know, I was just leaving. I'm actually looking for my mom. Have you seen her?

Meg: Yeah, she's in the lounge.

Emily: Thanks, Meg.

Paul: Please, please wait.

Meg: I've nothing more to say to you.

Paul: Okay, then don't say anything. But after everything we've shared will you please just listen to me one last time?

Lucy: I'll check on your release orders so we can get you home.

Craig: One of the other doctors can handle that, while you're picking up Johnny.

Lucy: But we just decided --

Craig: That it was best to handle it through the legal system. And I agree with you. In fact I've already set some things in motion. Ahh, Cassandra. Right on time, as usual.

Cassandra: How are you feeling?

Craig: Much better, thanks. You know my daughter, Lucy.

Cassandra: Cassandra Willis. I'm representing your father in his custody case.

Lucy: I remember you from the hearing.

Craig: Cassandra, do you have what I need?

[Cassandra chuckles]

Cassandra: Just got it from the judge moments ago.

Lucy: What's that?

Cassandra: An order for equitable relief so that Craig can have Johnny for an overnight visit.

Craig: Only over night?

Lucy: May I see that?

Cassandra: Hey, with such short notice, it's miraculous you got a non-restricted twenty four hours.

Craig: All right, so we're covered legally right? No loopholes?

Cassandra: Yeah, none.

Craig: All right, Sweetness. So there's nothing to stop you from going and picking up Johnny and bringing him to me.

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

Simon: If being with me is making you feel worse about all this, just tell me. 'Cause we don't have to stay together.

Katie: We have to steal Carly’s necklace.

Henry: We?

Lucy: This doesn't make this not any more difficult.

Barbara: Oh, I'll make it difficult. I will go to my grave before I let you lay a hand on that baby.

Lucy: You know, there's no telling how Barbara Ryan will react.

Cassandra: We have a court order.

Lucy: That won't keep her from slamming the door in my face. But you know, I'll give it a shot.

Craig: Lucy? You don't think I'd send you off to face Barbara alone, did you?

Lucy: Nothing really ugly. And it could really frighten Johnny. So why don't you just send me first, and then we'll see --

Craig: No, I'm gonna send you with Cassandra.

Lucy: Oh --

Craig: She can make sure all is done according to the book. And if the police need to be called --

Cassandra: I won't hesitate to do so. Hey, you know, that could work in our favor. Shall we?

Craig: Lullaby? I want you to know how much it means to me that you're on my side.

Lucy: I'll be back soon.

Craig: With Johnny.

Paul: I never got to tell you how beautiful you looked in that dress.

Meg: My shift started, I need to get back to work.

Paul: Please, Meg, please, please -- could you take a little break, please?

Meg: Just take a little break and spend some time with me alone?

Paul: Yeah, you're probably right. If you were alone with me, you know I would do everything I could to try and get you to remember that you love me. You do still love me?

Meg: Yes.

Paul: I have an explanation for why I did what I did.

Meg: If you're going to start in on the evils of Craig Montgomery --

Paul: No, no. I'm evil. I'm the one -- I'm evil.

Meg: No.

Paul: No, look, I did whatever I could to get Dusty to shoot Craig. And then, when that didn't work, and I saw him lying in there alive, I took a pillow --

Meg: Okay, I don't want to hear this.

Paul: And I held it over his helpless face. That -- that's evil.

Meg: Why did you do it, Paul? Were you jealous? Did you hurt him because of me?

Paul: Absolutely, yes. But that's not it entirely.

Meg: Then why?

Paul: And then, he was still alive. And I saw him lying there, recuperating. And my sister is dead. And my daughter is dead. And he gets to live? Him? He gets to live years? He get's to live a decade? Do you have any idea what my sister would do with that kind of time?

Meg: She would raise Johnny, love her family. But Paul --

Paul: And instead, Craig is going to take Johnny and erase Jennifer. He's going to take that little boy and he's going to raise him in his own image and it'll be like my sister never even existed. And I am not going to let that happen. I only wish I could get you to understand.

Meg: I do. I do understand.

Henry: Look I'm undercover, okay? I'm just doing a job.

Mike: Since when?

Vienna: Enrique, you lied to me?

Henry: No --

Mike: Katie. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Where are you going?

Katie: Simon needs to be in jail where he belongs so that you and I can be together --

Vienna: Is that what this is all about? Simon stealing the diamonds?

Mike: He really stole them? You can prove that?

Vienna: Well, not exactly prove, but -- you should have just asked me, instead of sending this -- person, who's trying to seduce me with champagne.

Henry: You know, about that -- I am still up for that swim, if you are.

Katie: Wait, hold on. But you said -- you told Jack --

Vienna: Yeah, I know what I told Jack, that the jewels were in the royal vault, and I was mistaken.

Henry: That's great. About that swim.

Vienna: So you and your wife are trying to put Simon in jail?

Mike: No, I didn't have anything to do with this. Katie and I are --

Katie: No, you don't need to tell her.

Vienna: What is it?

Henry: Mike and Katie are separated. You know, about that swim --

Vienna: Really?

Henry: Oh, man --

Vienna: Well, then, who cares about the stupid diamonds? You know, you are here, and so am I, and we're both unattached. Maybe we should --

Mike: Look, its good seeing you, okay? There's something I got to do.

Vienna: You lied to me.

Vienna: Well, I find that very intriguing in a man.

Henry: I lie all the time. I can't seem to stop myself.

Katie: Hey! Isn't that great about the diamonds? It proves that I'm right, that Simon's still a thief.

Mike: And you are still obsessing over him.

Katie: No, I'm obsessing over you. You're my husband, I love you. I'm only trying to gather this evidence against Simon so that --

Mike: To what? To prove something to me? Katie, you slept with the guy. That's all the proof I need that we don't belong together anymore.

Vienna: Well, maybe if you lose the goatee.

Henry: Consider it gone.

Katie: Sorry, Henry.

Vienna: So, are we going swimming or not?

Henry: I'm afraid not. Here.

Vienna: Ah, well.

Henry: Mike? You go home and -- we'll get together tomorrow, huh?

Katie: No, no, no, I have to do something tonight. The faster Simon is in jail, the faster Mike will forgive me.

Henry: But you just --

Katie: No, he has to forgive me! I can't lose him, Henry.

Henry: Okay, you figure out what you want to do and give me a call.

Katie: Let's go to the police.

Henry: Jack already has Vienna’s statement --

Katie: Then why hasn't he arrested Simon? Let's go find out, please?

Henry: Oh, come on.

Simon: All right, I am not making fun of Jack.

Carly: He was trying to help us.

Simon: What, but accusing us of grand theft? Carly, if that diamond had been real --

Carly: Jack thinks that it is real.

Simon: All the more reason to force him to get a warrant. Okay, innocent people don't just hand over expensive jewelry without legal incentive.

Carly: Jack is the person who brought up the warrant in the first place, remember? He was trying.

Simon: Because it ticked me off, him doubting you like that.

Carly: Well, he has a right to doubt me, doesn't he? We did steal the jewels.

Simon: You don't think I see how much it hurts you when he calls you a liar.

Carly: That's what I am, isn't it? Jack's just trying to protect me.

Simon: Yeah, 'cause he still loves you.

Carly: Because he doesn't want to see the mother of his children go to jail.

Simon: Well, neither do I, but we're not just going to hand it over to him. He'll think it was a setup then.

Carly: Oh, Simon, don't you get it? He's already onto us. He knows that something is up.

Simon: So, by getting a search warrant --

Carly: He was giving us a chance to get rid of evidence, if there was any.

Simon: Well, there is none, 'cause we dumped it. Why aren't you happy about this?

Carly: Because I don't like lying to Jack.

Simon: You're having regrets.

Carly: I like where I ended up. Business is off and running. It's just how I got here --

Simon: And who you got here with. Regrets about that, too?

Carly: Can we just -- can we not talk about this now?

Simon: No, no. Seriously. I mean, if being with me is making you feel worse about all this, just tell me. 'Cause we don't have to stay together.

Carly: Simon, this isn't about us.

Simon: Sure sounds like that way to me.

Carly: I was married to Jack. I loved him for a very long time. I don't enjoy making him look like a fool.

Simon: So you'd rather confess to Jack and spend the next few years in prison?

Carly: No, of course not. You know that I want to get away free and clear. But Simon, Jack was working security the night we stole those diamonds. Gonna end up looking bad. I just -- I have a hard time dealing with that.

Simon: Jack's gonna be fine, okay? He'll do his job by the book, he'll get his little search warrant, he'll discover that this is a fake. Probably give you grief for dating a guy who would give you a fake, and then it's over. It's done. The theft of the leonia diamonds goes away as an unsolved crime.

Carly: With Jack's name attached.

Simon: We can't undo what we've done. Will you please stop worrying about Jack?

Carly: You make that sound pretty easy.

Mike: So Vienna really did give you a statement?

Jack: Yeah, according to her, Simon stole the diamond necklace she was wearing the night of the gala.

Mike: So what happens next?

Katie: Okay, when are you arresting Simon?

Jack: I need more information, Katie.

Katie: Well, Vienna is saying now that the jewels really were stolen --

Jack: The thing is, they weren't Vienna’s jewels, so she can't give me an official statement. Only the prince can do that.

Katie: Henry, what are you doing? You need to stay here in case you need to be a witness.

Henry: Witness to what?

Katie: I don't know. Police incompetence.

Mike: Katie --

Henry: I think you're very competent, for the record.

Katie: You need to call the prince and tell him what's going on.

Jack: Thank you, Katie, I know what I need to do. And I have called the prince, he's on holiday and I'm waiting to hear back.

Katie: Oh, come on. Nobody in Leonia can get a hold of him? That's ridiculous. Tell them that it's urgent! Get him on the phone, now!

Henry: Katie, stop yelling at the nice detective.

Jack: I am doing the best I can with what I got.

Katie: Well, call in Vienna. Bring her in here. She'll tell you.

Mike: Katie, stop!

Jack: I can't arrest Simon on just Vienna hearsay's evidence. I need more time to build a stronger case. Please, all of you, go home. The wheels of justice will still be turning without you gathered around my desk.

Katie: We still think alike. The way we both showed up here, wanting the same thing.

Mike: Katie, I came here because I wanted to make sure Vienna went to Jack. You came here because you want to punish Simon. There's a big difference.

Mike: Henry.

Henry: Yeah?

Mike: Will you make sure she's okay?

Henry: Yeah.

Mike: And don't tell her I --

Henry: That you still care about her? I won’t. But I think you should.

Paul: You understand? That's great. You do?

Meg: Yes. But that's nothing new. I've always understood you, Paul. The way you treated Jennifer, Emily, it always made sense to me. And it shouldn't have.

Paul: Meg --

Meg: Because you hurt them. Again and again. And I watched you. I helped you. How could I do that?

Paul: You love me.

Meg: Yes, I do. And it nearly got Dusty killed -- in the name of your love. It drove Emily crazier in the name of your love. And if you had murdered Craig --

Paul: Look, look, Meg stop. Come on, I know that you're angry now --

Meg: I'm angry at myself! I chose you. I knew what you were. I just thought --

Paul: You thought what? You thought we could get past it. You did. You thought when the whole thing was over that we could have some kind of a future. That we could have a home. That we could have kids. And we can have all of that, we still can, Meg.

Meg: We can't! Because you won't change, Paul.

Paul: I don't know, I think I've learned a lot, lately.

Meg: I think you skipped a few lessons.

Paul: I don't know. I think I've changed.

Meg: You were gonna murder Craig.

Paul: I promise you that I won't try and murder anybody. Just please come back to me. I love you so much.

Meg: I was so desperate to find someone who loved me. Who would accept all my faults that I decided to ignore yours.

Paul: I don't know what you're saying. What are you saying?

Meg: I'm not saying I'm better than you, Paul, 'cause I'm not. But I just found out there's something more I want than to be loved.

Paul: Okay. Tell me whatever it is that you want I'll try and give it to you, Meg.

Meg: I want to be a better person, Paul. And if I'm with you, no matter what you promise me, I never will be.

Jack: Is Katie really gone or should I still be filing things?

Mike: She's gone. I'm sorry she got so --

Jack: Insulting? Obnoxious? Rude?

Mike: Yeah. It's about us. She thinks if she does everything she can to get rid of Simon --

Jack: You two will get back together? Yeah I figured.

Mike: You know Katie.

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Mike: Is Carly involved in this thing, too?

Jack: She says she isn’t.

Mike: What do you think happened the night of the ball?

Jack: That's what I'm trying to figure out.

Mike: But you really don't want to know, do you?

Carly: Hey, Sage, get your stuff together, okay? We're gonna go.

Simon: Listen, from experience when I used to do this a lot -- I've spent years terrified of getting caught.

Carly: Simon, what we did is not normal. And I can't pretend that breaking the law is just some sort of a easy way of getting things done.

Simon: What a lovely way to put it.

Carly: You are incorrigible. I'd like to think that maybe I'm not.

Sage: Hi.

Carly: Hey, you have everything?

Sage: Yes. Wait, I forgot my magic crystal!

Simon: So, where are you headed?

Carly: Home.

Simon: I'm guessing you probably don't want company?

Carly: No, no I really don't. I need some time to figure out what's really important. Okay, Sage? Come on, Hon. Come on, come on.

Simon: See ya kid.

Katie: I know Simon stole those diamonds. It's driving me crazy!

Henry: You've done everything you can to prove that. But it's out of your hands now. Jack is investigating.

Katie: Well, that's just gonna take forever then. Because by the time Jack comes to them, Simon and Carly will have ditched that diamond she's been wearing around her neck.

Henry: You really think that's part of the heist?

Katie: Yes, I know it is. There's no other reason that Simon would give Carly a diamond like that. And Jack is not putting 100% into this because I think he'd just as soon see Carly get away with it.

Henry: Would that be such a terrible thing?

Katie: Yeah, if Simon gets away with it too!

Henry: Oh, come on, enough with this vendetta thing please! Let's just let this end up the way it's gonna end up?

Katie: I need to end up with Mike.

Henry: Well, you heard Mike. Going after Simon is not going to get your husband back.

Katie: Yes it is. You don't understand. If Simon's behind bars, and I'm the one who put him there, Mike is gonna realize that he is the only one I loved and he will forgive me.

Henry: Sweetie, even if that were true -- even if that were true, what makes you think you can do more than Jack is doing right now?

Henry: We?

Barbara: Lucy? I wasn't expecting you. Do you have a message?

Lucy: From my father, yes. I just left him.

Barbara: Come on in.

Lucy: This is my --

Cassandra: Cassandra Willis. I'm an attorney.

Barbara: How do you do? I don't understand. An attorney?

Lucy: I've come to take Johnny for a visit with his father.

Barbara: I see, you're going to take Johnny to see Dusty?

Lucy: No, to --

Cassandra: To Craig Montgomery. The boy's biological father. Where is the child?

Lucy: I know that his nurse takes him out --

Barbara: I knew it! I knew it from the very beginning and you almost had me convinced --

Lucy: Is Johnny here or not?

Barbara: You know what? That was pretty good little innocent act --

Cassandra: Ms. Ryan --

Barbara: You stay out of this! Dusty trusted you. And you, you are already your father's daughter, aren't you?

Lucy: Barbara, let's not make this any more difficult.

Barbara: Oh, I'll make it

Paul: Do you think that if you leave me that you'll somehow be a better person?

Meg: I just can't be with you, Paul.

Paul: Craig got to you. Didn't he?

Meg: No.

Paul: He will. He'll come after you. Believe me, Meg. Craig is a whole lot more dangerous than I am.

Meg: I am not going to get involved with Craig Montgomery.

Paul: You won't be able to stop. Any of it. I want to apologize to you for what I've done. There are times when the only way to fight evil is with evil.

Meg: There is no excuse for cold blooded murder, Paul. Ever.

Paul: Meg, Meg --

Craig: So you think I'm dangerous, huh? How right you are.

Announcer: Next week on "As the World Turns" --

Tea: Come on.

Katie: We got it!

Henry: Hello, Gorgeous.

Katie: Simon, you are so going down.

Carly: Someone came in and took the necklace. And I bet I know who that someone is.

Craig: I know that you changed the bullets, so what am I going to do now?
