Meg: Craig's on his way. You'd better get going if you want to make that purchase.

Emily: Yeah, kind of a strange thing to buy New Yearís Eve, don't you think?

Meg: We don't have to go through with it.

Emily: Yes, we do, Meg. It's the only way we're going to get Dusty out of jail. So, what are you going to do to keep Craig occupied while I'm at Fairwinds planting evidence?

Meg: I have no idea.

Emily: Well, you'd better come up with a strategy or he's going to be suspicious. On second thought, you better know how to improvise.

[Knocking at door]

Meg: That can't be Craig already.

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

[Gwen remembering]

Jade: Seems like you kind of slipped off that pedestal you enjoy so much. Must have been a new experience for Will, being able to get up off his knees, not having to beg forgiveness from St. Gwen of the holy perfection.

[Gwen remembering]

Adam: Gwen. You did it!

[Gwen screams excitedly]

Adam: You were incredible!

Gwen: Yeah?

[Adam and Gwen kiss]

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

Maddie: Hey, how was L.A.?

Gwen: It was -- it was great.

Maddie: Good. So, how soon can I purchase your first cd?

Gwen: There's not going to be a cd. As of today, my music career is over.

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

Adam: So, you mad about it?

Will: I don't have to explain anything to you.

Adam: You're angry about the kiss.

Will: Yeah, and from what I hear, Jade's not too happy about it either. The only difference is, she's not married to you.

Adam: All right, look, you know what? It was a huge night for Gwen, okay? We just got carried away. Things happen.

Will: Yeah, well, it's damn well the last time it's going to happen with my wife.

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

Katie: Where did you get that?

Kim: Well, and a happy new year to you, too.

Katie: It is now. This is very important, Bob. Where did that come from?

Bob: Well, believe it or not, it was in a waste container at the hospital. I put up a notice about it, I kept it kind of vague for obvious reasons. But so far, no takers.

Katie: Well, you've got one now.

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

Simon: Buddy, how're you doing? Listen, you wouldn't happen to have a table for one, by any chance, would you?

Waiter: I'm sorry, Sir. The dining room's closed for a private party.

Lily: Are you ready to trip the light fantastic?

Holden: Honey, you and I are going to put this party on the map, okay? You and I. Let me go check and make sure they have the right music, I'll be right back.

Faith: Are you guys really going to go through with this?

Lily: Why? Are you too embarrassed to watch your parents dance in from of all these people?

Faith: No. It's just, if you think you think you have to put on a big performance just to show me that you two are okay, you donít.

Lily: I know that. We want to do it, that's all. And what better way to spend New Yearís than in the arms of someone you love?

Lily: Simon Frasier, how are you?

Simon: Happy New Year, Lily.

Lily: Thank you. You don't look so happy. I know it's difficult to see Carly with Jack, but Bob and Kim have gone through a lot of trouble to put this party together. So, I hope you don't --

Simon: Make a scene? Make a scene, me? I wouldn't dream of it.

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

Craig: Of all the calls I didn't expect to get --

Meg: Well, come in. What are you, a race car driver?

Craig: No, I was just in the car on my way home when you called. Was someone just here?

Meg: Oh, I think that's Jack, on his way to the station.

Craig: To protect and to serve --

Meg: Only you could make that sound like a bad thing.

Craig: Not at all. So, what is so urgent?

Meg: Well, why don't you sit down? Do you want something?

Craig: No, actually, I have plans. So, unless you've changed your mind about dining with me, state your business and I'll be on my way.

Meg: I hope your plans don't involve more visits to Paul's hospital room. He's still critical after his accident. And you standing by his bedside, taunting him, is not what the doctor ordered.

Craig: Ah -- well, there's just so much there to taunt.

Meg: This isn't funny, Craig. He needs to rest to make a full recovery.

Craig: Wow. For someone who just dumped the guy at the altar, you're awfully protective.

Meg: Believe me, it's not personal. I'm a nurse, and Paul's had several close calls. And the goal of the hospital staff is to keep him as calm as humanly possible.

Craig: Well, actually, I have no plans of inflicting myself any further on your patient. So, if this scolding is over, I have to get home to change for a party.

Meg: You know, that's right. It's New Yearís Eve. You know, I'd almost forgotten.

Craig: So you're not going to celebrate?

Meg: Well, not much to celebrate this year, I'm afraid.

Craig: Yeah, I know what you mean. You know, I'd invite you to be my guest at the party, but since you've already turned me down once today, I'm not a glutton for punishment.

Meg: Well, who knows? Maybe I'd surprise you.

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

Dusty: I hope you didn't come to wish me a happy new year, because I don't think that's going to be happening.

Jessica: Hey, I'm your attorney. Losing hope is not something you pay me to do.

Dusty: Did you find a way to get me out of here?

Jessica: I'm still working on it. But if I can't get you out of here, I'll settle for a reduced sentence.

Dusty: Is that different from what you've been saying to me all along?

Jessica: Okay, I'm sorry I don't have anything new to report. But that doesn't mean I can't come down here and reassure you that your case is my top priority.

Dusty: I don't need a babysitter.

Jessica: So, you just want to sit in your cell and feel abandoned?

Dusty: No, I'd rather be doing a lot of things. I'd rather be spending tonight with my son, but I don't know where he is.

Jessica: Well, the last I heard, Barbaraís hired a whole detective agency to look for him.

Dusty: Yeah, they're not having any luck. Go home, Jessica, and be glad you're not ringing in the New Year with a downer like me.

Jessica: But I haven't even started my pep talk.

Dusty: That's okay. There've been a lot of people coming in here trying to cheer me up. And it all adds up to nothing.

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

[Emily is at Fairwinds]

Emily: Oh, gosh, I hope these are the right blanks.

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

Adam: Okay, you want me to be honest? If it were me, and you'd kissed my wife, I guess the whole caught up in the moment thing wouldn't quite work.

Will: You think?

Adam: So let me apologize. Okay, I'm sorry I got carried away. But don't blame Gwen. It was all me.

Will: Whatever.

Adam: I'm serious, man. Don't punish her.

Will: I'm not.

Adam: You didn't pressure Gwen to give up her music?

Will: No, I did not.

Adam: Well, then you guilted her into it.

Will: I didn't guilt her into anything. I didn't even know she was going quit until you just told me.

Adam: Yeah, but she knows you're not happy, okay? And she wants to make you happy. So, she threw her career in the trash and you didn't stop her. You just let her do it.

Will: I didn't know what she was going to do. She didn't tell me.

Adam: I can't believe this whole thing blew up over one kiss.

Will: It wasn't just a kiss. Are you serious? It was between my brother and my wife.

Adam: Look, I didn't mean to disrespect your marriage, Will. I really didn't it. I just didn't think. All right? But please, don't let me acting like a jerk be the reason Gwen loses everything she's worked so hard for. It just isn't fair.

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

Gwen: It's not that big of a deal.

Maddie: Not that big of a deal? Since when? You have a major record producer interested in you. And all your dreams are about to come true.

Gwen: College was, you know, my dream, too. And since Will got in for spring semester, I'm going to give up music so I can be a, you know, student full-time.

Maddie: Give up as in give up, like forever?

Gwen: It just wasn't working for me.

Maddie: Okay, ever since I have known you, you have been composing and performing, and such a natural that your first appearance at this place, you became the major draw. And then L.A. comes, and the same thing happens, and you nail it on your first try.

Gwen: Look, the trip to L.A. wasn't perfect, okay? In fact, there's a lot that I wish that I could change about it.

Maddie: Is this about Adam?

Gwen: Why would you ask that?

Maddie: Well, he came down really hard on you on your first studio session. I mean, was he like that in L.A., too?

Gwen: No. In fact, it was the opposite.

Maddie: Uh-oh. Gwen, did something happen between you and Adam?

Gwen: No, it was nothing.

Maddie: Oh, it was something. Something big enough to make you want to shut everything down.

Gwen: It was just a kiss.

Maddie: Haven't you ever seen "Casablanca"? A kiss is never just a kiss. It stays with you.

Gwen: Well, you don't have to worry, because Adam didn't look at it that way.

Maddie: I don't really care how Adam looked at it. How did you look at it? That's what I want to know.

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

Elwood: Dude, what a waste.

Casey: What?

Elwood: Setting up the whole sound system just to listen to old fogey music.

Casey: That's funny coming from you. A lot of people think you're an old fogey, did you know that?

Margo: Hey, Guys.

Casey: Hey.

Tom: I heard that you lent a hand setting up the sound system.

Elwood: Yeah, for the eight-track generation.

Margo: Careful, Houseguest, I'll cut your rations.

Elwood: Sorry, Mrs. Hughes. And may I say, you're looking ravishing this evening?

Margo: Better.

Casey: Yeah, well, after all my hard work, I hope you guys least get out there and dance.

Margo: Sure we will. You know what? You are the best grandson in the world. Kim and Bob are going around town telling everybody that they got their own dj to set up their music.

Tom: You did us proud, Buddy. Honey?

Margo: Huh?

Tom: I believe we're getting flagged.

Margo: Oh, okay.

Tom: We'll see you guys later?

Margo: Bye-bye.

Casey: I wonder how good they're going to think I am after they find out how much of their money I lost online this semester.

Elwood: You know, I don't even get why you have to tell your folks, all right? Adam paid off the playpoker.Com guy. So, why can't you just leave it at that?

Casey: Because Adam said if I don't tell them, he will. So, I might as well tell them tonight.

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

Simon: What makes you think I'm going to make a scene?

Lily: I know you.

Simon: All right, okay, okay, you have my solemn vow that I will not do anything that Carly doesn't want me to do.

Lily: Oh, that makes me feel much better. Happy New Year, anyway.

Simon: Wait, wait, is it too late to say how absolutely gorgeous you look?

Lily: It's never too late for that.

Simon: All right, fine. You look absolutely gorgeous.

Lily: Thank you.

Simon: Happy New Year.

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

Bob: Are you saying this diamond belongs to you?

Katie: No, not exactly. But I'd like to borrow it to prove a point to somebody. Now, I know, before you say anything, I know. I know what you're going to say. But don't worry, I'll be extra specially careful with it. You can trust me, I'm Margoís sister.

Kim: Wait a minute, does this have something to do with your book? I mean, there was a jewel theft in that, wasn't there?

Katie: I promise, I will explain everything once the mystery is solved. But right now, I just really need that diamond, please?

Bob: Well, okay. You can have it 'til midnight. But if someone sees that notice, and then calls me about it, what do I say if you have the diamond?

Katie: I promise that won't happen. But if it does, I'll be sure to bring it back.

Bob: Okay. We should go.

Kim: Yeah.

Katie: Thank you.

Henry: Would you look at that? How did you get your hands on that?

Katie: Who cares? The important thing is, once Jack gets a hold of this, Simon will be going to jail before everyone can sing "Auld Lang Syne."

Henry: Oh, you sentimental fool, you.

Katie: What are you doing?

Henry: You might want to change your master plan there, Sweetheart.

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

Gwen: Why are you looking at me like that? Of course, it didn't mean anything. I mean, how could it? I love Will.

Maddie: Okay.

Gwen: I mean, I didn't handle certain things correctly, like I waited to tell him until I was afraid that he would find out from somebody else.

Maddie: Well, that is understandable. You love him. And you didn't want to upset him over a nothing kiss. Well, it's understandable.

Gwen: Yes, that's what I thought. But then Jade found out and she accused me of being a hypocrite.

Maddie: Okay, you know what? Who give a damn what Jade has to say? You know that she loves stirring up trouble where there isn't any.

Gwen: What did you mean before, when you said that a kiss is never just a kiss?

Maddie: I'm going to go wait outside for Casey.

Will: I just saw Adam. And he said you quit.

Gwen: Yeah, I thought it's what was best.

Will: Well, you thought wrong.

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

Jade: Hey. Hey, I came as soon as I heard your message. So, what's up?

Adam: Something big, according to my brother. The kiss heard around the world.

Jade: If you think that I told Will anything --

Adam: Look, there's nothing to tell.

Jade: Oh, so Iris lied? You and Gwen? Nothing happened in L.A.?

Adam: No, no, we kissed, okay? But it was no big deal. I mean, if you'd come to me when you'd heard about it, I would have told you that.

Jade: Well, I couldn't come to you.

Adam: Why not?

Jade: Well, I was scared.

Adam: Of me?

Jade: No. Of me.

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

Henry: Putting Simon behind bars is --

Katie: Will not guarantee that I get Mike back. Blah, blah, blah, blah --

Henry: There's a lot of truth in those blahs, Honey.

Katie: Well, what am I supposed to do, Henry? This is my only hope.

Henry: How about a nice little cooling off period, and then go to Mike with a nice Bordeaux and some flowers?

Katie: It's been weeks since Mike left me. He's already talking about starting divorce proceedings. This is the only hope I have. If I don't use -- would you stop?

Henry: Listen, would your forget about Simon, please? Vengeance is not an aphrodisiac. Now, if you keep on obsessing about him --

Katie: Wait a second. I know what this is.

Henry: What what is?

Katie: Simon plied you with martinis, didn't he? He asked you to get me to back off.

Henry: Okay, yeah, you're right about the martinis. But he did not talk about himself. He talked about Carly. I really think he's in love with her, I do --

Katie: Well, guess what? I'm in love with Mike. Whose side are you on?

Henry: Who helped you steal the faux diamond from Carly's house, huh?

Katie: All right, look, there is a bottom line here, Henry, and this is what it is. I may have committed the crime of ruining my marriage, but Simon committed a crime that is punishable by law. And I'm not going to stop until he pays for it.

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

Parker: That song -- is that the one you and Mom used to dance to in the living room?

Jack: Good ear, Buddy. Carly, what do you say? You want to -- you want to dance?

Carly: I'd love to.

Jack: Okay, I know it wasn't easy giving up Frasier.

Carly: Well, you made it pretty clear. It was either Simon or my children.

[Cell phone rings]

Jack: Snyder.

Katie: I need you to meet me in the lounge at the Lakeview.

Jack: Katie, can't you give it a rest? For just one night?

Katie: I've got it, Jack. I've got the proof you need to put Simon away for good.

Jack: I'm a minute away. Sorry to cut our dance short.

Carly: Police business?

Jack: I won't be long.

[Cell phone rings]

Parker: I'm going to hit the punch bowl.

Carly: Hello?

Simon: Either you meet me upstairs in my room in five minutes, or I'm going to come over there, take you in my arms and kiss you in front of this whole damn party.

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

Meg: I don't know, Craig. I'm not sure this dress works for me.

Craig: Well, it works for me.

Meg: I think I should've gone with the red one. You know, everybody's going to be wearing black. Would you mind if we just stopped off at the farm on the way on the way to the party so I can change?

Craig: This is what I miss about marriage. Constant second-guessing of the wardrobe.

Meg: This is the first night I've been out since Paul and I broke up. I want to look good.

Craig: Meg Snyder, are you fishing for compliments? I already told you, you look fine. Better than fine. You look breathtaking. So, no, we're not going to stop back at your place. We're already late as it is.

Meg: Okay, okay, you don't have to get yourself in an uproar.

Craig: I'm not. I'm far from it. In fact, I'm honored that you decided to be my date. Not to mention surprised.

Meg: Speaking about surprises, how did you manage to get an invitation to the party of the year?

Craig: Two words -- hospital board. And don't change the subject. Why did you decide to be with me tonight?

Meg: Well, no girl likes to be alone on New Yearís Eve. You know, you're right, Craig, we're already late for the party. You'd better hurry and change.

Craig: I'll be right back. What the hell?

Craig: My servants must have left the window open in the dead of winter. I should find out who it is and make them pay for the heating bill.

Meg: Craig, while you're upstairs changing, would you mind if made myself a drink?

Craig: Be my guest.

Meg: Emily!

Emily: What the hell did you two come in here for?

Meg: He asked me to go to the party with him! And I stalled as long as I could by getting dressed, but then he had to come home and change. I thought it would be okay. You were supposed to be done by now!

Emily: It took me a little time to find the blanks.

Meg: Okay, so did you have time to plant them yet?

Emily: Yes. Top drawer.

Meg: Okay, then, why are you still here?

Emily: I was leaving. I'm on the way to the Lakeview to talk to Tom.

Meg: Whoa, whoa, you and Craig and I can't show up at the same time.

Emily: Oh, you're right. You're right. Okay, so you need to stall him some more. You keep Craig here until I call and I say the coast is clear.

Craig: You ready?

Meg: Actually, Craig, on second thought, I don't want to go after all.

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

Dusty: Can you call someone to take me downstairs?

Jessica: Well, gee, I've heard of being kicked to curb on New Yearís Eve, but this is ridiculous.

Dusty: Yeah, I know. It's laughable.

Jessica: You know, I wish you were capable of laughing. But instead, it's like you've decided to lay down and die. When did that happen?

Dusty: When I realized there's no magic bullet. Do you still want to wait around to fight for what? Some appeal? For some new evidence to show up and save the day?

Jessica: New evidence? You know -- you know about some new evidence? If you do, tell me.

Dusty: No, I donít.

Jessica: So, why'd you bring it up?

Dusty: Because I don't think it pays to count on miracles. There are no miracles.

Jessica: Dusty, I've spent a lot of time in the courtroom. The legal system is full of surprises.

Dusty: And the darkest hour is just before dawn.

Jessica: Okay, okay. You win. I'll have somebody take you back to your cage.

Dusty: Sorry I'm not better company.

Jessica: Something's happened since the last time I was here.

Dusty: I decided to be a realist.

Jessica: Or maybe somebody let you down. Was it me?

Dusty: No, Jess. Not you.

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

Bob: Lily, I can't tell you how happy I am to see you looking like your old self again.

Lily: Oh, thank you. Holden and I have never had more to be grateful for.

Kim: Well, I have to say to you I can't think of two better people to kick off the new year in style. You ready to meet your public?

Holden: Um, I think so.

Kim: Maybe yes, maybe no.

Bob: Just let me know when you're ready and I'll introduce you.

Lily: Okay. All right. Are you sure you want to do this?

Holden: Yeah. Yeah, I do. You know, if only for Faith's sake.

Lily: She's just pretending it doesn't matter. Believe me, it's good for her to see us like this. She'll begin to believe in us again.

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

Elwood: Hey, Case, could you favor me? When you tell your parents about the whole gambling thing, can you leave my name out of it?

Casey: Why?

Elwood: You know moms have this thing where they tend to blame their kids' friends for being bad influences. And well, I still need a place to crash before the dorms re-open.

Casey: Yeah, man, I'll leave your name out of it.

Margo: Hey, I thought you and Elwood would have taken your eight-tracks and hightailed it to a hipper holiday fest. Isn't there a party over at Crash?

Casey: Yeah, but the thing is, I have something to tell you --

Bob: Ladies and gentlemen, Kim and I would like to thank you for joining us tonight to say good-bye to 2006 and welcome in 2007.

Kim: Yes, and to make this night, this special night even more special, we have a surprise for you.

Bob: We'd like to honor a couple that have had quite a few setbacks this past year.

Kim: This is a couple whose love has survived -- no, wait a minute. I take that back. It has flourished, in spite of all those setbacks.

Bob: So, I'm introducing Holden and Lily Snyder. A way you've never seen them before.

[Applause]

Luke: It's pretty amazing. This time last year, we didn't even know if they were going to get together, now look at them. Stronger than ever.

Faith: Put on a good show.

Luke: What's that supposed to mean?

Faith: Nothing. They've worked really hard and it paid off.

Luke: Yeah, they did work really hard. Not just on this performance.

Faith: I know.

Luke: So, I guess you can stop get all freaked out that they're going to break up again?

Faith: I guess.

Waiter: Excuse me, Miss. May I make a plate for you?

Faith: No thanks.

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

Jade: I never thought I could have feelings for anybody after Will. And when I heard about you kissing Gwen, I realized how much I care about you. And it kind of freaked me out. I'm not trying to get serious on you or anything like that. I just -- I don't want to get hurt again. So, if you do have feelings for Gwen --

Adam: For the last time, all right? All my feelings for Gwen are tied to her music. As for you? Are you still scared? So, are we going to celebrate the New Year together?

Jade: I'm ready when you are.

Adam: Okay. Look, I just got to stop by Crash first, make sure Will tried to convince Gwen to come back to work. It's business. That's all it is.

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

Will: I'd hate myself if you gave up your career because of me.

Gwen: What do you think? You know, you only get one break for a lifetime? I'm going to get other chances.

Will: This is kind of an once-in-a-lifetime thing.

Gwen: Why is everybody making such a big deal out of this? I'm not giving up anything because of you. I'm doing it for me. I love school. I can't wait to get back, especially theory class. All the other stuff, it's going to come later.

Will: Yeah, but you're like almost there. I mean, you have this great cd, you're out in L.A., you're a hit with the crowds. That's not easy.

Gwen: And you would know that how?

Will: I have a brother in the industry, maybe you've heard of him.

Gwen: Well, that's just it, Will. The last thing that I want is for you to feel weird about me working with Adam now.

Will: I donít. I talked to Adam and he said the same thing you did. That the kiss was about being all pumped up after the performance. And after I got over wanting to knock him out, then I believed him. So, there's no reason for you to quit. I want you to see this through.

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

Simon: Time's up, Carly.

Carly: Simon, if Jack knew I was here.

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

[Applause]

Margo: Hey, how come you never dance with me like that?

Tom: Well, I could.

Margo: Oh, you mad impetuous fool.

Tom: You wouldn't have me any other way.

Margo: Oh, Honey, what do you want to talk to us about?

Casey: Nothing that can't wait.

Tom: Uh, in that case, let's get out there and show the Snyders how it's done.

Parker: Hey, Faith.

Faith: Hi, Parker.

Parker: It must be pretty cool.

Faith: What?

Parker: Parents who are still so into each other.

Faith: I guess. If that's what they want people to think.

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

Margo: Oh, what a swell party this is, huh?

Tom: Really, because of who's here or isn't here?

Margo: All right, I'm rotten. I'm glad that my brother decided not to come.

Tom: Oh, Honey, the night is young.

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

Craig: Meg Snyder, you befuddle me.

Meg: Was it good or bad?

Craig: Well, in this case, it's damned annoying.

Meg: It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind, right?

Craig: That's another thing I miss about marriage -- I thought you didn't want to be alone for the holiday.

Meg: Well, I'm not. I'm with you.

Craig: So, why the sudden change of heart?

Meg: Well, while I was waiting for you to come downstairs, I was picturing us entering the party. All the people that I'm not ready to face yet. Barbara, who's going to beg and plead for me to take Paul back. And Holden and Lily --

Craig: Really? I thought you and your brother were very close?

Meg: We are, but sometimes he has this ability to do things that I can't and it's a little hard to take. I mean, God bless them, Holden and Lily are able to survive everything. And here I am, breaking off my second serious relationship since my divorce.

Craig: Well, I certainly can relate to that. Having just lost the two joys of my life.

Meg: Hey, you know, I don't want to get you down. So, if you want to go the party, just drop me off at the farm on the way.

Craig: Oh, there's no way that I'm dropping you off. We're here. Let's make a night of it. I have champagne on ice. Did you make that drink?

Meg: No, no, I was looking for wine. I assumed it was down in the cellar.

Craig: I have a few vintage bottles up here. Are you a merlot girl, Meg?

Meg: Absolutely.

Craig: Now, where did put that corkscrew?

Meg: Craig, stop!

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

Gwen: Now that's a kiss that meant something. And I don't want to ruin a perfect moment, but I'd probably should call Adam and tell him I change my mind and decided not to quit. I mean, if he's still interested.

Adam: Damn right I'm interested.

Gwen: Hey.

Adam: Hey.

Gwen: I can't wait to get back into the studio.

Adam: Me either. And Gwen, you too, Will, what happened in L.A., I promise it will never happen again.

Jade: Yeah, just so we're all clear on that. Adam, shouldn't we get going?

Gwen: Oh, you guys aren't going to stay for the party?

Adam: No, we've got other plans. But we can stay and watch you perform.

Gwen: Great. I should get ready.

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

Maddie: So, you ever have a girlfriend, Elwood?

Elwood: Oh, yeah, I've broken so many hearts.

Maddie: Really? Who knew?

Elwood: Oh, yeah, you just got to love 'em and leave 'em. You know --

Maddie: Yeah, I don't really know what it is about New Yearís, but it just seems wrong not to be with somebody.

Elwood: Well, I mean, you've got nothing to worry about. I mean, you have Casey.

Maddie: Oh, yeah, if he ever gets here. But whatever, as long as he's here to kiss me at midnight, that's okay.

Gwen: Hey.

Maddie: Hey.

Gwen: You, I need your help getting ready.

Maddie: The show's going on?

Gwen: The show's definitely going on. Hello, Elwood.

Maddie: Oh, Happy New Yearís, El.

Elwood: Hey, mega dittos, back at you. Who says mega dittos? Oh, hey man, your lady was looking for you.

Casey: All right, thanks.

Elwood: Hey, how did it go with your folks?

Casey: It didnít.

Adam: Are you trying to avoid me, little bro?

Casey: And why would I do that?

Adam: Because you didn't tell Mom and Dad about the gambling?

Casey: Do you know how long it's been since they've had any fun? You should have seen them out there on the dance floor. I haven't seen them like that in years.

Adam: And you didn't want to burst their bubble.

Casey: Plus, I got to thinking, since I've already quit betting, I promise you that I would never do it again -- maybe you can just let me slide this one time?

Adam: Okay. Why shouldn't I give my little brother a break? But, this is the receipt for the debts I covered for you. Just in case you think about slipping up again.

Casey: Thank you, Adam.

Adam: Looks like we both caught a break tonight.

Elwood: Way to go, Brother.

Casey: Go away.

Elwood: Sorry.

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

Maddie: I know why Adam kissed you.

Gwen: You know, can we lose that subject?

Maddie: He kissed you to forget about the man-eating witch waiting for him back home. Look at that. Look at that. She practically has him in like a hammerlock. You mean to tell me that he actually enjoys that? Please.

Gwen: You know what? I don't know what he enjoys and I don't care. Because he's my producer and he's my husband's brother and that's all he's ever going to be.

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

Henry: Hey, Maria? Over here. Over here.

Jeweler: Henry, my favorite bad boy.

Henry: Oh, Man, that's what they all say.

Jeweler: Now, the last time I saw you, you were about to pull off --

Henry: That's been a long time, hasn't it? Yeah, the reason I called you, and man, oh, man, don't you look delicious. The reason I called you, was I have something to unload and I figured you'd be just the person to talk to.

Jeweler: It is nice to be remembered. Oh, let's see here. Did Simon Frasier give this to you or did you lift it?

Henry: I do not know what you refer to.

Jeweler: Come on. We both know this is from the royal necklace that Simon fenced. Were you the one who helped him pull off the heist?

Jack: Henry had nothing to do with it. But you did, Ms. Bealer.

Jeweler: Hey, what is this?

Jack: May I?

Henry: Yeah.

Jack: I'm placing you under arrest. You have the right to remain silent.

Jeweler: Henry --

Jack: Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law --

Jeweler: You set me up.

Henry: Yeah, well, those are breaks, Sweetheart.

Jack: You have the right to an attorney --

Jeweler: Dirty double-crossing liar --

Jack: One will be appointed to you -- right, right this way.

Henry: Poor girl. She never knew what hit her.

Katie: Yeah, neither will Simon. This is finally the beginning of the end for him.

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

Carly: Simon, you're not going to believe this, but I came up here to tell you to back off.

Simon: Is that what you want?

Carly: No. No, of course not. But it's the way it has to be.

Simon: Because Jack says so, huh?

Carly: He's trying to protect me and the kids.

Simon: Oh, that's not true and you know it. Jack is clutching at anything to keep you close. But threatening to take your kids away from you? I'm not going to let that happen because I'm not going to get caught. Carly, we got rid of that diamond. Why won't you accept that?

Carly: Maybe because the last time we were certain it was gone, it showed up in my daughter's science project!

Simon: Okay, and listen, if by some wicked turn of fate it shows up again, there is nothing to trace it back to us. So, the only thing keeping us apart is Jack.
