Faith: Mom, look at those boots! They would look so awesome on me with my new horse.

Lily: Oh, really? What's wrong with your old boots?

Faith: They're too small. And look at that helmet! It matches the boots. That is so cute! I'm going to need that, too. Mine is small.

Lily: Yours is small -- you are relentless. Are you taking lessons from your grandmother?

Faith: I promise I will only wear it for competitions.

Lily: Well, Christmas is coming up --

Faith: Is that a yes?

Lily: I think you're going to have to be patient. You never know what will end up under the tree.

Faith: Mom, you're the best!

[Holden laughs]

Jack: I heard you guys were looking for me. What's up?

Katie: I have something you need to look at.

Jack: Okay. Show me.

Katie: It's something you've been asking for.

Jack: What? A raise? We could all use one --

Katie: No, but it is worth a small fortune.

Mike: Just show it to him, Katie.

Katie: You wanted proof, you got your proof. Look.

Jack: That's Carly’s necklace. How'd you get it?

Katie: Don't worry about that right now.

Jack: Katie, Carly wouldn't just give you that necklace. So, tell me how you got that.

Katie: Well, it's not really Carly’s, is it? Not technically, really.

Jack: One last time. How'd you get the necklace?

Katie: How I got it is not important. How they did is.

Jack: Katie --

Katie: You know just as well as I do that Simon and Carly stole this diamond from the prince. And now we can prove it.

Carly: Wow. Oh, Sage, these are really terrific. I can't wait to see yours. Ah, there's Jill. Why don't you go and help her set up the solar system? And we'll come and check it out in a few minutes.

Sage: Okay!

Carly: You did not have to come to this thing.

Simon: Oh, are you kidding?

Carly: Well, I know that kids and erupting volcanoes aren't really your thing.

Simon: No, is this thing going to erupt? Look, understand, a trip to the Laundromat with you would be exciting. You know that.

Carly: Sweet talker.

Simon: And besides, you're hiding it very well, but I know you're still worried about that diamond.

Carly: Yes, well, I am worried, because someone broke into my house.

Simon: We don't know that for sure.

Carly: Right. Right, I don't know that for sure. Because it's quite possible that the necklace might have gotten up and just walked out of the house all on it's own!

Simon: Fine, fine, fine, okay? Let's say someone did break into the house --

Carly: That someone being Katie.

Simon: Fine, let's say it was Katie. So what?

Carly: What do you mean, so what?

Simon: I mean, so what. I mean, she stole a fake. We both know the real one is at the bottom of the river. It's never going to see the light of day again.

Jill's mom: That looks good right there. So everyone can see it.

Bob: Well, there's still some bruising, and also tenderness. But given that you were on the critical list for a gunshot wound a few days ago, I'd say you're recovering remarkably well.

Craig: Well, I don't understand. Lucy said that the wound was infected.

Bob: You know, that is surprising. Do you think that she could possibly be talking about some other wound that you have?

Craig: No, it was this wound. I mean, she leaned in, she gave me a hug and --

Bob: Craig?

Craig: I'm sorry, I have to go.

Lucy: I'm taking Johnny and getting us as far away from here as I can.

Lucinda: What you are doing is kidnapping that child.

Lucy: Okay, call it what you want, but it's the right thing to do.

Lucinda: It's crazy.

Lucy: No, you know, what's crazy is how so many people claim to love Johnny. And maybe, in their own way, they do. But they can only show that love by hurting each other.

Lucinda: How far do you think you're going to get?

Lucy: I called Mother.

Lucinda: And your mother didn't talk you out of it? Has she lost her mind, too?

Lucy: She's arranged a plane for us.

Lucinda: Dear God, you're not taking that child to Montega!

Lucy: No, that's not where we're going --

Lucinda: You think -- you think about what you're doing!

Lucy: I have. If we leave now, we can get away. We won't be followed.

Lucinda: Of course, you're going to be followed -- the police, the FBI -- you'll be a fugitive, Dear.

Lucy: Okay, if it means that Johnny has a chance for a real future, it's worth it.

Lucinda: Enough about Johnny, enough about him. What about you? Your life? Your career?

Lucy: Look, I don't care about any of that. Johnny is all that matters now!

Lucinda: Okay, I accept how you feel about Johnny. You're looking after him, but who's looking after you?

Lucy: You, Grandmother. You say that you love me. Then help me. Don't tell anyone about this.

Lucinda: Sweetheart, I'm sorry. You take a step towards that door with that child, and helping you is not what I'm going to be doing.

Lucy: You can't stop me.

Lucinda: Oh, the hell I can't!

Lucy: If you don't let me go, Johnny could end up like Bryant. Is that what you want?

Lucinda: Oh, Darling, that's such an unfair question. That's so --

Lucy: Or he could end up like me -- torn between two people who claim to love him most. I won't let that happen to him --

Lucinda: I cannot let you take the child out of the country. Even if it means that I've got to make the phone call myself.

Lucy: You can't do that! You can't -- you can’t.

Lucinda: All right, all right, for heaven's sake. Help me! Help me to understand!

Lucy: Okay, it was planned. Daddy set up Dusty to shoot him so that he could get custody of Johnny.

Lucinda: Your father wanted to get killed?

Lucy: No, no, he thought that there were blanks in the gun. But -- that's why he pushed Dusty to do it.

Lucinda: How do you know that?

Lucy: I heard him say it.

Lucinda: Oh, Darling.

Lucy: I mean, a man who could do that and call that love doesn't deserve to be a father. Not to me, not to Johnny.

Lucinda: You're not getting any arguments from me on that subject.

Lucy: And Barbara and Paul? They'll never let my father raise Johnny. There'll just be more fighting with Johnny stuck in the middle, just like with Dusty.

Lucinda: Well, what about Dusty? What about Dusty? You're taking his boy away from him.

Lucy: I believe that eventually he'll understand my decision.

Lucinda: Darling, he loves you. But that only gains you so much understanding.

Lucy: You don't think I know that?

Lucinda: Well, you claim that you love him. How can you steal his child?

Lucy: I do love him. I love him more than anything. And I loved him so much that I didn't see how much he hated my father. I wanted to pretend that it wasn't there. But it is. And it will always be there. My father may have pushed Dusty, but Dusty pulled that trigger.

Lucinda: Okay, you stay. You stay, and you unite with Dusty. The two of you together against your father, and maybe even these charges can be dismissed.

Lucy: No, no, because if Dusty gets out, he'll just go after my father again. And he'll say it's to save Johnny.

Lucinda: So, you're going to be Joan of Arc and you're going to go and save Johnny? Come on, Darling. Do you really believe that this will stop the animosity between those two men? You're smarter than that, Dear.

Lucy: At least Johnny won't have to see it. Neither of us will.

Lucinda: Honey? Honey, Honey, what about me? What about me? What about me? If you go, then I won't have you around anymore, I won't see you.

Lucy: I'm doing this for Johnny. For my baby brother.

Lucinda: Okay, but it's a decision that's going to change your life and maybe ruin it.

Lucy: This decision -- I make life and death decisions every day. The day I let Jennifer walk out of that hospital, I started this --

Lucinda: Stop it. You had nothing to do with the girl's death.

Lucy: I let her leave, and Johnny lost his mother! I owe it to her to do whatever I can for him. I've got to go.

Lucinda: Please, Darling, please. Please don't it. Please?

Lucy: Look, Daddy's going to be here any minute. And he's going to know that I tricked him. Please, Grandmother. Please, let me go.

Faith: I wonder if they have riding pants. They do! Mommy, can we go inside, please? Mom?

Lily: What, Honey? I'm sorry. I'm sorry. What did you say? I'm sorry.

Faith: Are you okay?

Lily: I'm fine. Now, don't look worried. I'm fine. I'm okay.

Faith: I was just going to show you the riding pants.

Lily: You're supposed to meet Janeen and her mother here to go shopping, right?

Faith: Oh, yeah. There they are.

Lily: Hi, hi. There they are. Okay. So, you're going to go shopping with them and then Janeen's mom is going to take you home, right? Go ahead.

Faith: I want to say here with you.

Lily: There's nobody I'd rather hit these stores with than you, believe me.

Faith: Great, so, I'll stay here with you. And they won't care.

Lily: Don't you want one of your Christmas presents to be a surprise?

Faith: You don't have to get me anything.

Lily: Now, I know that's not true.

Faith: I don't need boots or a helmet. It's just, we were having so much fun -- did I do something wrong?

Lily: Where's this coming from?

Faith: Why are you acting weird all of a sudden?

Lily: Parents act strange and weird around Christmas time, don't they?

Faith: Why do you want me to go?

Lily: There are just some things that I need to take care of before it gets too dark. That's all.

Faith: I don't believe you.

Lily: Okay, point taken. But there's something I do have to take care of all by myself. But I promise -- promise -- I will be home in time for dinner. Okay?

Faith: Fine.

Lily: Fine. Okay, go, go. Give me a kiss. Go on, have fun.

Jack: You've got to be kidding me. You broke into Carly’s house? Were you involved in this, Mike?

Katie: No, no, of course not. This was my idea.

Jack: Why are you here now?

Mike: To see what you'll do. How you'll handle this evidence.

Jack: Henry.

Katie: Why does it even matter if anyone was with you when I got it?

Jack: You guys come down here and you accuse Carly of committing a crime. And you run around doing the same thing!

Katie: Breaking and entering is hardly the same thing as stealing a million dollars worth of jewels --

Jack: You took this, Katie. You took it without Carly’s permission, without her knowing about it. That's theft.

Mike: All right, Jack. She gets it.

Jack: No, I don't think she does, Mike.

Katie: Fine! You want -- you want a confession? Yes, I broke into Carly’s house. Yes, I took the diamond. But I was stealing it back to prove that it was stolen in the first place.

Mike: Katie --

Katie: We all know where it came from. We all know that Simon did not buy that for her.

Mike: Look, regardless of how you came in possession of the diamond, there's got to be something you can do.

Katie: He can arrest them.

Jack: No, you little meddler, I can't!

Katie: What more do you need?

Jack: Well, first of all, you can drop the vigilante routine.

Katie: These were special circumstances. I had to act.

Jack: Without a search warrant, without probable cause -- you're not a cop, Katie!

Katie: Yes, but you are. That's why I brought it to you. So you could have it examined or traced, or whatever, to prove that it's from the royal jewels --

Jack: There are procedures that need to happen here, okay? We've got to follow some things. We've got to verify the authenticity. We've got to get an expert to come down --

Katie: So get the expert down here!

Mike: I doubt the Oakdale PD keeps guys like that on retainer.

Katie: Okay, fine. We just need someone to examine it and say that it's from the royal jewels.

Jack: I have half a mind to make you return this before Carly figures out what you've done.

Katie: Well, hopefully the other half of your mind would say that's a stupid idea.

Jack: All right, all right. Bottom line is this case is based on nothing more than personal bias and circumstance. And this diamond -- this diamond –

Vienna: I would recognize that diamond anywhere. It's from the royal necklace.

Carly: Katie must be so pleased with herself. You know, maybe I ought to teach her a lesson and call the cops.

Simon: Yeah, that's a good idea. Get Jack and the boys in blue over to search the house, ask a lot of questions. Is that what you want?

Carly: No.

Simon: No. And there's still no proof that someone actually broke into the house. I think there's a far simpler explanation.

Carly: What, like what?

Simon: That the actual thief actually never broke in. Okay, you know how fond I am of Sage. I think she's awesome, but she's a little girl who likes to play dress up. So, that means --

Carly: That she might want to borrow her mother's jewelry.

Simon: Well, she does want to be just like you.

Carly: You think that Sage took my necklace?

Simon: I'm not saying she meant any harm.

Carly: She wouldn’t. Simon, she would ask first.

Simon: Okay, all I'm saying is that she was there when you took the necklace off. Have you actually asked her if she'd seen it?

Carly: You know something, Simon? Sometimes, actually, you make sense.

Simon: I know. Scary, isn't it?

Carly: Terrifying.

Sage: Mom, come see our project! It's all set up!

Carly: Oh, terrific. You know, I'd love to, and I'm going to. It's just, I need to have a little talk with you first, okay? Come here, Honey. Hi, Dr. Hughes.

Bob: Hey, hi, Carly. Sage, look at you. You're all grown up and you're so beautiful.

Carly: Well, say thank you to Dr. Hughes.

Sage: Thank you, Dr. Hughes.

Bob: You're welcome. Do you have a project here at the science fair?

Sage: We made the solar system.

Bob: That's out of this world! I think I'm losing my touch.

Carly: No, not yet. Would you mind if we just use that room for minute?

Bob: Oh, sure. It's vacant. I'll try to get back and see your project.

Carly: So, I just -- I just need to ask you a question.

Sage: Am I in trouble?

Carly: No, no, no, no. No, you're not in trouble. I promise. It's just -- do you remember Mom's necklace? The diamond one, the really sparkly one?

Sage: Yeah, it's really pretty.

Carly: Yeah, it is. Well, I took it off, and now I don't know where it is. Sage, you didn't take it, did you? I mean, if you did, I'm not going to be mad. I just want to know.

Sage: I don't have it. Honest.

Carly: Okay, all right. I believe you. I just had to ask.

Sage: But I saw it.

Carly: You saw it? Where?

Sage: On the couch. I had my magic crystal and I was playing with it --

Carly: Your magic crystal? You're sure that you were playing with a magic crystal, right? And not my diamond?

Sage: Well, I was sort of playing with them both. I might have mixed them up.

[Holden and Tea laughing]

Lily: Oh, my God.

Holden: Lily, what are you doing here?

Lily: I was shopping -- with Faith. We were Christmas shopping. And I saw the two of you. She said something that made you laugh. My mother said I was silly. I was just playing into my own insecurities, but I knew something was wrong. I even asked you about it.

Holden: Lily, I told you everything was fine. And it is.

Lily: Now it all makes sense. The phone calls, the times I couldn't get in touch with you.

Holden: If you just give me a chance to explain.

Lily: Explain? Explain what? How Meg saw you in Oakdale but you were in Springfield? But you were never there, were you?

Holden: No.

Lily: And Jade knew that. Jade defended you. She was so adamant about it. She knew it was going on, didn't she?

Holden: No, no, not exactly. If you'd just calm down --

Lily: Calm down? Who is this woman? And why are you having an affair with her?

Katie: I may be the only woman alive who's ever been happy to see Vienna Hyatt.

Mike: She's not exactly the most credible source.

Katie: If anyone can verify that diamond, she can. She was wearing the necklace the night of the party.

Jack: She also said the necklace passed inspection before she returned it to the prince.

Katie: And then she told me that she was mistaken about that.

Jack: Well, it's a pretty big mistake -- at that level? These guys know what they're doing.

Mike: Maybe you shouldn't get your hopes up.

Katie: No, Vienna is going to back up everything that I've been saying. Simon and Carly stole that diamond and they've been lying to everyone since. He turned her into a criminal!

Mike: You know what? I know how much you like to be right --

Katie: No, this isn't about that --

Mike: I get that you want to be right about this. But dial it back a bit, okay? Not for me, but for Jack. Think about what it's going to mean to him if this is true.

Katie: Jack, I know how hard this is on you. I'm really sorry. You and Carly have kids. I mean, if this is true, then I don't even know how you'll begin to tell them about this.

Jack: No, Katie -- you know, I can't sit here and tell you that I don't have the same suspicions as you do. Truth is, this is Carly we're talking about, so anything's possible. It's not your fault. No matter how this turns out, I can't blame you -- at all. And if it turns out that you're right about this diamond --

Katie: I am right, Jack. There's no way that that diamond isn't one of the royal jewels.

Vienna: This diamond is not one of the royal jewels.

Katie: What?

Mike: Are you sure?

Vienna: This is nothing but a knock-off. A very good one -- it fooled even me at first. Which is not easy to do.

Jack: What tipped you off?

Vienna: Well, the shape is right, the color is very good, but I know my stones, Detective. And if any man tried to give me this, I would be offended for life.

Katie: So it's worthless?

Vienna: For me, yes. But to you? It's a well-spent 100 bucks. You know, its excellent work, but it's not the real thing.

Jill: Why isn't anybody looking at our project? And where's Sage and her mom?

Jill's mom: Why don't you go ask Carly's friend to see your project?

Carly: You think that you might have mixed up your crystal with my diamond?

Sage: Uh-huh. The one that lady gave to me. Remember?

Carly: Yes. Yes, right, she gave it to you because you were so nice to her.

Sage: I tried to show it to you a bunch of times.

Carly: I know. I know, I'm sorry. I wish I would've looked at it sooner.

Sage: That's okay.

Carly: But what I don't understand is how you could have mixed up your crystal with my diamond.

Sage: Well, they look the same.

Carly: Sage, I don't think that's possible.

Sage: Mom, I'm not making it up. It looks exactly like yours.

Craig: Lucy? Lucy!

Lucinda: No need to call in the marines, Darling. Lucy and the baby are fine.

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

Carly: I don't believe it.

Jill's mom: Doesn't it look like a million bucks?

Holden: May I have this dance?

Lily: I thought you'd never ask.

Craig: Where are my children?

Lucinda: I gave them one little thing -- a way out. So, we go to this new place...

Holden: I am not having an affair.

Lily: Well, who is this woman?

Holden: This is Tea. My dance instructor. Tea, this is my wife, Lily -- my beautiful, jealous wife, whom I love and adore.

Tea: It's a pleasure to finally meet you.

Lily: I don't understand.

Holden: Tea's teaching me how to dance.

Lily: That would explain the mirrors.

Tea: I'm sorry to meet you like this. I was actually looking forward to it, the way Holden talks about you.

Lily: Oh, did he use words like calm, and secure? I'm sure I'm living right up to your expectations. Sorry.

Tea: Given his insistence that we keep our lessons a secret, I'd say your reaction was pretty understandable. I probably would've swung one of those bags at him.

Lily: I still might do that.

Holden: Lily --

Lily: You're been taking dance lessons? Why wouldn't you tell me something like this?

Holden: Because I wanted to surprise you for Christmas.

Lily: You dance --

Holden: No, I hold on to you and sway side-to-side. Half the time, I'm not even on the beat.

Lily: You did this for me?

Holden: Dancing is something that you love to do. And you've been feeling so down. I didn't know how to help you out. And I've been saying all the wrong things --

Lily: No, no, you haven’t. I've just been so cranky and sensitive. No one could have said the right thing.

Holden: I thought this might make you feel better.

Lily: Oh, public humiliation is definitely the way to go.

Holden: These feet have ruined many a pair of shoes.

Lily: No, I was with you. I didn't care about the shoes.

Holden: Yeah, but I did.

Lily: Dancing?

Holden: I wanted a way to show everyone, especially you, that my wife was the most beautiful woman in the world. And how lucky am I? Here she is on my arm. This is the best I could come up with.

Lily: You're amazing.

Holden: Well, don't get too excited. I'm no Gene Kelly yet.

Tea: Yeah, but you are safe in a pair of open-toed shoes.

Lily: Oh, good. I don't have any left, but --

Holden: I planned the evening. Dinner, dancing. And hopefully no cry for ice at the end of the evening.

Lily: Oh, and I ruined it!

Holden: No, no, no, you didn't ruin anything. You know, when Jade saw me and tea together, I should've come clean. But I wanted it to be a surprise.

Lily: It is. I should've trusted you. I should've trusted us. But I come in here, barge in, accusing you of having an affair --

Holden: You know what? Forget about it. Just know that I love you, that I will always love you. That you're the only woman that I will ever want. Today, tomorrow -- always.

Katie: Vienna, listen, I don't mean to be rude --

Vienna: Well, it's nothing you can help.

Katie: But wearing diamonds, and knowing if they're real or not, are two very different things.

Vienna: Well, what can I say? Simon taught me well. Look, if you want to bring in somebody else to take a look at it, feel free. You won't hurt my feelings.

Jack: Great. Thank you very much. Hey, could you bag this, take it down to evidence, lock it up? Get a local jeweler to come down here and take a look at it.

Cop #1: You got it, Detective.

Katie: What, that's all you're going to do?

Jack: You know what I can do, Katie? I can arrest you for breaking and entering and petty larceny. How does that sound to you? Those are the crimes that have been committed here.

Katie: So far. You're leaving?

Jack: My daughter's science fair is starting. I promised her I'd be there.

Mike: Jack, listen -- for what it's worth, thank you.

Vienna: Yes. It was a pleasure seeing you.

Jack: Yeah. You want some advice? Let this go. 'Cause as soon as my guy confirms what Vienna has said, I don't want to hear the word diamond again.

Katie: Why are you lying?

Vienna: Are you questioning my judgment?

Katie: No, I'm questioning your loyalty. You may be in on this with Simon, huh?

Vienna: That's ridiculous!

Katie: Is it?

Vienna: You're not the only woman he's toyed with. I want to see that man brought to his knees and beg for mercy! And be denied it.

Katie: Then why did you lie and tell Jack that the diamond was a fake?

Vienna: Because it is. And thanks to you, I have much bigger problems than Simon Frasier. The prince is going to be furious at me. And I do not like to be yelled at.

Mike: You know, maybe Jack was right. Maybe we went to far with this.

Katie: No. Oh, my God, no, we didn't! I can't believe I didn't think about this before.

Mike: Think about what?

Katie: It doesn't matter if the diamond is fake. Simon and Carly have totally implicated themselves. Jack cannot stop this investigation.

Carly: So, your crystal and my diamond look the same?

Sage: When I had them together, I couldn't tell them apart.

Carly: Oh, well, you must have a very special crystal then. Sage, I'd like you to stay here for a just a minute. I'll be right back, okay?

Sage: I don't want to miss the science fair!

Carly: No, no, no. You're not going to miss anything -- I promise. I'll be right back.

Jill: Our project is the best one here.

Simon: Really? Okay, let's go check it out then.

Carly: No, no, you know what? Jill, that's just going to have to wait. For another minute, okay? Simon, I need you to come with me -- right now. Right now.

Simon: So, what's going on?

Carly: Sage, will you tell Simon about your magic crystal?

Simon: You have a magic crystal?

Carly: Yes, she does. That nice homeless woman gave it to her outside Java.

Simon: She did?

Carly: Tell Simon what it looks like, Honey.

Sage: It looks just like the diamond in Mommy's necklace.

Simon: Kind of like the diamond in Mommy's necklace? Just kind of?

Sage: No, exactly like the diamond in Mommy's necklace.

Simon: Right. And did this old, homeless lady -- did she tell you where she found the crystal?

Sage: No, she said it was a present. And she wanted me to have it. I said thank you.

Carly: Well, that was very polite of you, Honey.

Simon: Yeah, very polite, indeed. Listen, Sage, I would really, really love to see this magic crystal of yours. Do you think you could tell me where it is, and I'll bounce off to your home and pick it up?

Sage: You don't have to.

Simon: Yeah, yeah, but I want to.

Sage: No, I mean, it's not at home. It's here.

Craig: Would you like a drink? What are you doing here?

Lucinda: I certainly didn't come to see you. I came by for a visit with Lucy.

Craig: Yes, and where is she? And my son?

Lucinda: They went -- they've gone for a walk.

Craig: A walk? In the cold?

Lucinda: It's very pleasant out, really, and the air is refreshing.

Craig: Then why didn't you go with her? What happened to spending quality time with your granddaughter?

Lucinda: I decided to forego that and wait here for you so that I could give you a piece of my mind, Darling. Darling, I am not at all happy with this arrangement -- of Lucy, living here with you.

Craig: Well, Lucy’s a grown woman. She can make decisions on her own.

Lucinda: Yes, she can. Even if I don't always agree with them.

Craig: Where did you say they went?

Lucinda: I don't know. The gazebo -- I think. She likes it there.

Craig: You're lying.

Lucinda: You're right! I'm vamping. I'm vamping -- I'm buying time. Wouldn't you like to know why?

Lily: I am so sorry for the way I reacted.

Tea: You don't have anything to apologize for. I would've jumped to the same conclusions.

Tea: And you should know that Holden had a heck of a time counting out his steps.

Lily: He did?

Tea: Like I said, he just couldn't stop talking about you. The rendezvous in your mother's stable, your children, the way you two are a part of each other. I mean, that kind of connection -- it's very rare.

Holden: All right, all right, I think she's heard enough.

Tea: He buckled down eventually. He's determined to sweep you off your feet. And I think he just might pull it off.

Holden: I need to grab my coat. Because I gotta run out and get you another Christmas present.

Lily: Wait, wait, wait. So you wanted to sweep me off my feet?

Holden: Ah, yeah -- i did.

Lily: Okay, Snyder. Let's see what you got.

Holden: What, right now?

Lily: I think this is the perfect spot, don't you?

Holden: Yes, Ma'am, I do.

Lily: Whoa, whoa -- aren't you forgetting something?

Holden: May I have this dance?

Lily: I thought you'd never ask.

Katie: When Vienna walked in, she thought the diamond was one of the royal jewels.

Mike: Yeah, so? We all did.

Katie: Yeah, and she had to look at it for a really long time before she realized it was a fake.

Mike: Okay, maybe it's just me, but how does that implicate Simon and Carly?

Katie: Think about it. Why in the world would Simon and Carly have an exact replica of that diamond? The only reason they would is because they have the real thing and they're trying to hide it! Think about it. They're covering their tracks, it's a decoy. Jack has got to get a search warrant and go over to Carly's right now, before --

Mike: Katie, stop!

Katie: He needs to do this!

Mike: No, no, let this go.

Katie: I can’t.

Mike: You have to. We both have to.

Katie: It's too important.

Mike: Why? Why is this so important? Do you hear how you sound? Spinning conspiracies out of thin air? You're driving yourself crazy. And me. Look, stop obsessing over Simon and Carly. Let this go.

Katie: I can’t. I can't let it go, Mike. Because you have to see --

Mike: See what?

Katie: It's not about the stupid jewels, okay? He just takes whatever he wants and he doesn't care, but I do care, because what Simon took from me, I want. And I might not ever get it. But if I can prove that he did this, then maybe, maybe I –

Simon: Okay, Sage, you've got your magic crystal on you? That's awesome. Where is it? In your pocket? Can I have a look at it?

Sage: No, it's in our project!

Simon: Your project? Like, your science project?

Sage: Yeah, we used it for the sun because it's really shiny.

Carly: Simon!

Jill's mom: Oh, the girls have been dying for you to see this. Isn't it wonderful?

Craig: I'm waiting. What did you say to Lucy?

Lucinda: Oh, I didn't say anything. I didn't have to. I just listened. I just listen to the pain in her voice when she talks about you.

Craig: I've never done anything to hurt my daughter. Now, get the hell out of my house and stay away from my children!

Lucinda: You have no idea -- no idea of the damage that you inflict on those children, do you? And the appalling way that you've gone after Johnny.

Craig: He's my son.

Lucinda: No! No -- he's a pawn, he's a trophy. And what you have done -- the lengths to which you have gone to keep Dusty away from Johnny --

Craig: The man tried to murder me!

Lucinda: Well, if you had a heart, Darling, maybe he would've succeeded.

Craig: Oh, please --

Lucinda: You know nothing. Nothing about being a father. Nothing about it to talk about it.

Craig: All right, that's enough.

Lucinda: I mean, you think being a father is nicknames and ultimatums -- and things like that, but it's not!

Craig: Really? And you've never had an overbearing day in your life?

Lucinda: I teach my children to think! Now, what have you taught yours? Other than their father is very selfish and doesn't have a single honest emotion in him.

Craig: Anything else?

Lucinda: Yes! You take what is pure in people and you twist it around. And I've seen you. And I saw you do it with sierra for years. And you're not going to do it with Lucy!

Craig: Sierra loved me. And I loved her the best I could. And I'm not the best father or the best husband. And now I have a chance to make up for that. I have paid the price, Lucinda. I have earned a second chance.

Lucinda: You blew it.

Craig: Why? Because you say so?

Lucinda: Because it is so. Because you're just a bully. You bully people to get what you want.

Craig: I just want my family.

Lucinda: Oh, we all know. The world knows what you want! But it isn't owed to you. You haven't earned it. Possession isn't love. And you don't know that -- Lucy does.

Craig: What does that mean?

Lucinda: It means the girl's eyes are opened. You're not going to pull the wool over her eyes ever again.

Craig: You sound like she's already gone. Where are my children? What have you done?

Lucinda: I haven't done anything. Me? Well, maybe I have. Maybe I gave them one little thing -- a way out.

Craig: Where the hell are my children?

Katie: You're right. I do need a break from all this.

Mike: We both do.

Katie: But I'm not giving up.

Mike: Why do you keep putting yourself through this?

Katie: You know why. Even you have to admit it makes sense. Why would Simon and Carly have an exact replica of that diamond? Because they're hiding the real one someplace, and we need to find out where.

Carly: I don't believe it.

Jill's mom: Doesn't it looks like a million bucks?

Jack: Wow, look at all of these.

Sage: Daddy!

Jack: Sweet Pea!

Sage: I'm so glad you're here! Now you can see my science project!

Lucinda: Lucy and Johnny are gone, and they're never coming back. And you will just have learn to live with that.

Craig: Where are they?

Lucinda: I don't know. Lucy? Johnny? Come out --

Craig: Stop it! Where is my family!

Lucinda: Family? You were a better family man when you were locked away in prison!

Craig: You tell me where my family is!

Lucinda: They're someplace where I hope you can't get to them. And you will never see either of them again.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Jack: All right, Carly. Why the stalling? Why don't you want me to see Sage's project?

Simon: Smile, Jill.

Holden: You did put the horse in the barn?

Luke: Yeah, they brought the horse, we put some straw down -- made her comfortable. I think Faith went down there just a little bit ago.

Holden: Are you sure? Because the horse is gone, and Faith is nowhere in sight.

Craig: Where are my children? You tell me where they are!
