Lily: There's my girl! Okay, I was thinking, since you have the day off from school maybe we could do something together. Just the two of us.

Faith: Why?

Lily: It's been a long time since it was just you and me. I thought, why not? Oh, it'll be great to get out of the house. We can have Faith and Mom's excellent adventure!

Faith: Mom -- I just got this.

Lily: I'm sorry. Did I make the pages flatter?

Faith: No.

Lily: I was thinking this morning, it's been a very long time since we went to Chicago. So, what do you think? We get all dressed up, drive into the city?

Faith: I don't know.

Lily: Come on, it'll be fun. We'll go to the Palm Court Hotel like we used to. We'll have high tea. We'll get all dressed up. We'll have some finger sandwiches, some raspberry cake --

Faith: Why would you want to do that? I thought you were on a diet.

Katie: Yes, I'm calling about Simon Frasier. How can you be having so much trouble finding him? He's an extremely tall man. Australian accent. Kind of stands out around here. Ohh, am I glad to see you!

Henry: Oh, I wish I could stay, but I canít.

Katie: Of course you can. I'll spring for coffee while we figure out how we're going to find Simon.

Henry: Okay, would you please tell me what it is you have against the police, huh?

Katie: I just spoke with them on the phone. They're hopeless. Besides, no one knows how Simon thinks better than you and me, right?

Henry: I canít. I can't -- I can't -- I can't-- I can't watch you go down this path again.

Katie: What path?

Henry: You don't think I see the stars in your eyes? You think if Simon ends up behind bars, that Mike is just going to come running back to you I can't watch you break your heart again, Sweetie --

Katie: All right, we need to adjust your attitude. Forget the coffee, I'm getting you a martini.

Henry: No, no, no, it's too early for me to drink. What are you doing?

Katie: You never turn down a martini. Are you feeling okay --?

Henry: Get your hands off of me! I can't drink because I have to drive.

Katie: What? You're chauffeuring again?

Henry: Yes. And, so I need to get upstairs and dust off the old uniform.

Katie: Who's your passenger?

Henry: Oh, you don't know him. I mean, you don't know her. She's a she. Just a reference from an old customer.

Katie: Where are you taking her?

Henry: I'm not sure.

Katie: She didn't say when she made the reservation?

Henry: No, that's not what I mean. I know -- I know where I'm taking her. I just wrote it down, and it slipped my mind. Anyway, I need to get out there. Look out world, Colemanís back on the road.

Katie: God help us all.

Henry: Oh, Bubbles, you have no idea.

Carly: Hey! Will you take the trash out please, before you go to hockey practice?

Parker: It's J.J.'s turn, isn't it?

Carly: Yes, well, Mrs. Kately already picked him up. He and Brian are going to go the movies. And Sage tagged along.

Parr: So I have to do his job for him?

Carly: Yeah, you have to do his job for him.

Parker: Fine. Mom?

Carly: Yeah?

Parker: Did you know there's a cop outside? Sitting in an unmarked car at the end of the driveway? Mom, why are we being watched?

Simon: Henry, come on. Come on. Come on.

Henry: Freebird. Freebird. I thought we worked out a code.

Simon: And I thought that you would bring me up a coffee. Where is it?

Henry: The dining room was a little occupied right now.

Simon: Police?

Henry: Peretti. I don't know which is worse.

Simon: Okay, she didn't follow you up, did she?

Henry: No. You know what? I'm getting a little tired of lying to her, though, Simon, okay? She's one of the very few semi-functional relationships I've been able to maintain. I want to keep that going.

Simon: Okay, all right. What about the other thing? Were you able to talk to Carly?

Henry: Well, I got a little problem there, too. It seems that Jack has put the entire place under surveillance. Including a cop parked at the end of the driveway.

Simon: All right, listen, we got to find a way around that, Henry. I really need to talk to her.

Henry: All right, well, I wouldn't bother calling her. I'm pretty sure Jack has got the phone lines tapped as well. Why don't you try smoke signals?

Simon: All right, I can light the fire, Henry. I just need you to blow the smoke in the right direction.

Emily: I still can't figure out why he did what he did.

Meg: Neither can I. But Craig never does anything without a reason.

Emily: Well, that's the scary part, Meg. He knows we set him up, we planted evidence. And he still decides to take the blame for something he didn't do. You think this is some part of a plan to retaliate against us?

Meg: No.

Emily: No? Why do you sound so sure of that?

Meg: Oh, listen, listen -- when I talked to him last night, there was something different about him. What I did, pretending that I was interested in him, acting like I could need him. He was honestly hurt to learn it was just an act.

Emily: Oh, Meg.

Meg: Emily, maybe, maybe, I got to him. Maybe he realizes that letting go of this vendetta is the right thing to do.

Emily: You need to wake up and smell my coffee. You did not get to him.

Meg: Okay, why do you say that?

Emily: Because I know the man! He doesn't take anything lying down. And if he's acting like all wounded, it's only so that when he lowers the boom, you don't see it coming. Trust me, Meg. This isn't over.

Jessica: It's hard to believe Craig removed the blanks from the gun and replaced them with real bullets. That he got himself shot on purpose.

Dusty: You have something against the truth?

Jessica: No, no, but one would think if it were true, you would have said something the moment you were arrested. Or when you found out that Lucy had run off with the baby.

Dusty: I told you why I didn't say anything.

Jessica: To protect Emily.

Dusty: Who cares? Craig confessed. Why am I not walking out of here a free man?

Jessica: There is the issue of you holding someone at gunpoint and pulling the trigger.

Dusty: Even if I thought the gun was loaded with blanks?

Jessica: You know what? Let's not do this. Craig is in there right now with the D.A. and he could be making an official statement, or he could be recanting his whole story. So, we need to be prepared for this to go either way.

Craig: Ms. Hamilton, what my lawyer is trying to say, is that we're looking to make a deal. One that benefits everyone involved.

Cassandra: If both sides agree, you understand the consequences of this deal?

Craig: I do. And I can live with them. Which is key, don't you think?

D.A.: I'm far from charmed, Mr. Montgomery. I would like to run this past Mr. Donovan's attorney.

Cassandra: Why? Do you have a problem with it?

D.A.: We'll see. Ms. Griffin, a moment please? Mr. Montgomery, if you won't mind waiting outside?

Craig: Oh, while you decide my fate? Anything to speed the process.

Jessica: Craig, try not to bait my client while you're out there.

Craig: Oh, I won't dream of it. Well, Dusty, looks like this means we're not going to be cellmates. So, just tell me something. What do you do to these women?

Dusty: What's that?

Craig: They're so willing to help you out. Even at their own expense. And Emily, she's risking her freedom. Planting evidence. Giving false statements to the police. And Meg, well, I'm sure I wasn't her first choice to ring in the New Year with. So, I'm just curious. What did you promise them?

Dusty: Well, all I know is your confession guarantee. I'm going to walk.

Craig: Are you sure about that?

Dusty: So, what's his game?

Jessica: I'll let the DA fill you in.

Craig: So what's the deal?

Cassandra: Well, given the circumstances, I'll think you'll be quite pleased.

D.A.: Mr. Donovan, Mr. Montgomery. As I'm sure your respective counsels have explained to you, we've been able to come up with a deal that I believe --

Craig: I'm sorry, I don't mean to interrupt --

Dusty: Then keep your mouth shut.

Craig: But there are some people missing whose lives are going to be affected by the decision. So, I think it's only fair that they're present to hear it.

Meg: You need to calm down?

Emily: Calm down, Meg --

Meg: You're not acting like someone who just came forward with the truth.

Emily: Because I didn't! Look, I was fully prepared to defend my story. I was not prepared for Craig to go along with it. I have a very bad feeling about all of this.

Meg: Okay, you know what? You're being -- [Cell phone rings] I'm sorry. It could be the hospital. Hello?

D.A.: Meg Snyder?

Meg: Yes.

D.A.: This is District Attorney June Hamilton. I'm handling the Craig Montgomery shooting. I need you to come down to the police station as soon as possible.

Meg: I'm on my way.

Emily: Oh, that was the D.A.'s office --

Meg: I'll do you one better. The DA herself.

Emily: So much for Craig not coming after us.

Meg: Okay, why do you always jump to the worst-case scenario?

Emily: Experience, Meg. Experience. Do you understand what this means? He has proof. He has proof that we set him up and he's probably recanted his entire testimony. Oh, God!

Meg: Will you calm down? Calm down. We don't know what's happened. We're going to go down there and find out. And no matter what happens, we stick to our story. Agreed?

Emily: Yeah, agreed.

Lily: Yes, I'm on a diet. Thank you so much for reminding me. But you know what's more important than that?

Faith: What?

Lily: You. Spending time with you. I'm not going to let a complete extra pounds stop me from doing that.

Faith: I just want to read my magazine.

Lily: All right, what's going on? I don't -- your father wanted to take all of us riding, you said no. How you'd rather read a magazine than spend the afternoon with me?

Faith: I just want to hang out at home. What's wrong with that?

Lily: Shopping? Do you want to go shopping? Iva sent you all the money for Christmas. We could go shopping, spend some of it.

Faith: I don't like shopping. I hate trying things on.

Lily: No, you donít.

Faith: Yes, I do! It takes forever. And the changing rooms are so small and they all smell weird!

[Doorbell rings]

Lily: I'll get that. Hi, Tea. Come on in.

Tea: I hope its okay that I stopped by. I just -- I couldn't wait to see the photos of you and Holden dancing together on New Yearís.

Lily: I haven't even looked at them. I've been so busy with the kids. Come on in. Come on in.

Tea: Hey, Faith.

Faith: Hi.

Tea: Did you have fun at the party? It must have been so exciting, watching your parents have their big moment. You must've been really proud.

Lily: I put them in the drawer so Natalie wouldn't rip them into shreds. Do you want to look at these, Faith?

Faith: Sure.

Lily: All right, here. Here's Bob and Kim, here at the party. There they are, Bob and Kim. It was their party, they're introducing us here. And there's all of us there.

Tea: Wow! Faith, look at you. That's a beautiful dress.

Faith: Thanks.

Lily: That's a -- that's a really bad angle of me. Whoa, maybe it's not the angle. I don't look so good.

Tea: What are you talking about? You look great.

Lily: I don't know. I don't know. I really could stand to lose a couple of extra pounds.

Faith: That's why you need to stay on your diet.

Tea: Well, you know, Lily, if you want, you could sign up for a couple of dance classes at the studio --

Lily: Me? No.

Tea: Yeah. It's obvious that you love to dance. And it's a great way to tone up, lose a little weight. Plus, it's a lot of fun.

Lily: Yeah, it works for you, obviously. But I don't know, I'm so busy with the kids and the baby, I wouldn't have time.

Faith: I do! Can I take some classes?

Carly: Just because someone is sitting in a car outside --

Parker: Told you. This because of son?

Carly: Simon?

Parker: Well, you said the police are here looking for him.

Carly: Listen, Parker, what's going on with Simon very complicated.

Parker: That's not answer.

Carly: I know Simon is in trouble. But just don't know how much.

Parker: Jack says you know where he is.

Carly: Well, I donít. I don't know where he is. But I don't blame Jack for not believing me. [Phone rings] Hello?

Henry: Hey, Carly. It's Henry.

Carly: Oh, my God.

Henry: Just listen to me, okay --

Carly: I cannot believe you're calling here! I know what you did. Now, you listen to me.

Henry: Uh, you know what? Now, would not be a good time to get into specifics --

Carly: You know what I think of the way you treat people? I think it stinks. And I think it makes you a creep and a lousy friend! Is that non-specific enough for you?

Henry: Hey! Now, wait a second. That's not true. I'm trying to help you here, okay? I'm on your side.

Carly: Really? Well, that's the last place in the world I would ever want you to be! Now, don't you call here again!

Henry: Wait a second, Carly. Carly -- she hung up on me.

Parker: Who was that on the phone?

Carly: Just someone I used to do business with.

Parker: You sounded pretty mad.

Carly: Well, things ended badly. I had something really good going and he ruined it. It happens.

Parker: Do you think Simon will show up?

Carly: No. No, I don't think we'll be seeing Simon for a very long time. Do you understand what I'm saying?

Parker: You're saying Simon is gone.

Carly: Right. Simon's gone.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Hello?

Henry: Look, please, just give me a chance to explain --

Carly: I'm hanging up now.

Henry: No, no, no. You canít. Mimi.

Carly: What?

Henry: The vase that you bought for the model apartment. You named it Mimi, right?

Carly: Yes. Yeah, I remember. How would you know about that?

Henry: Well, I know a lot of things. I know that when the vase broke, you were devastated. Carly?

Carly: I'm here.

Henry: Well, I stumbled across another vase. One I think you'd be interested in. But obviously, I can't bring it to you in person. So, if you would like to meet me at Java, I will bring you a brochure and then you can get in contact with the manufacturer.

Carly: Yeah, I'd like that very much. The place isn't the same without it. You said you wanted to meet me at Java?

Henry: Yeah, as quickly as possible. It's a much sought-after item. So, I wouldn't want you to miss out.

Carly: Of course. I'll be right there.

Parker: Back in business?

Carly: Well, let's hope so. Now, you go. You get to hockey practice. Have a good time, and don't worry about what's going on here, okay?

Parker: Mom? You'll be back here when I get back, right?

Carly: Yeah, sure. Of course. I will always be here for you. Now, go. Have a good time. Be careful of your beautiful face. Well, a girl's got to have her coffee.

Henry: It looks like that actually worked. Carly -- well, she didn't hang up on me this time. So, I'll go down to Java and maybe she'll actually show up.

Simon: All right, you got the phones?

Henry: Yes. I've got the phones. I've got one for you, and I've got one for Carly. And this -- there you go. This way you'll be able to talk as long as you want without fear of rollover charges or wiretapping.

Simon: Good, good, good. You're a good man, Henry. Excellent work. Thank you.

Henry: I may have not been the world's best private eye, but you got to love the toys.

Simon: Okay, listen, after you see Carly, you can just leave me back here alone, you know, give me time to talk to her?

Henry: Yeah, is there anything else you need, Simon? Anything else I can do for you? Do you have, like a sword, you need me to throw myself on, huh? Hide me from the police, get me coffee, get a message to Carly, get the hell out of here? You know what? I had to turn down a martini this morning. You're starting to wear on me.

Simon: I'm sorry, all right? I hate to do this to you. You know I do. The scary thing is, you're the only person I trust right now.

Henry: Gosh, you know, when I dreamed of the time that someone would say those words to me, she didn't look like you.

Simon: Yeah, well, I don't want to trust you. I should be stringing you up for selling me out to the cops like that.

Henry: Yeah, yeah, fine. Whatever. Okay. I'll give you as much time as I can.

Simon: Hey, whoa! Aren't you forgetting something?

Henry: I don't know. My spine, my will to say no to you?

Simon: Brochure, Henry. Listen, make sure the cop that Jack has following Carly doesn't see the exchange.

Henry: That's just insulting.

Simon: Look, I'm serious, all right? I don't want Carly to get in any more trouble because of me.

Henry: Don't you think we're a little beyond that now?

Simon: Just be careful.

Henry: Yeah.

Lily: I didn't know you were interested in dance lessons, Faith.

Faith: It sounds cool. And it looked fun that day I was there and all those girls came in.

Lily: What about your riding lessons? You begged us to get that horse, and now you're not even riding Stormy at all.

Faith: I told you. I'm just not into horses anymore. When could I start?

Tea: Well, I actually scheduled some classes for today, when I heard that the schools were closed.

Lily: Today?

Tea: And a lot of the classes are for beginners, just like Faith.

Faith: Jade, guess what? I'm going to take dance classes with Tea! Isn't that cool?

Jade: Girlfriend's going to get her groove on.

Faith: First mom has to say yes. Can I?

Lily: Are you sure you want to do this?

Faith: Yeah.

Lily: All right. I guess we should go shopping. We should go shopping, and get some leotards and some shoes and -- things.

Tea: Well, there's a little shop in Old Town. And Faith and I could stop in on the way to the studio.

Faith: That'd be awesome!

Jade: Well, looks like you have to say yes.

Lily: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Okay. Fine.

Faith: Let me get my coat. Don't leave without me!

Tea: Okay, I wonít. I can drop her off after class.

Lily: That'd be great. Thank you. Thanks you so much.

Faith: Let's go, Tea!

Lily: Bye. Have fun.

Craig: This whole started because Dusty and I had the same agenda. To discredit each other in the eyes of the court as to who was the best man to raise Johnny. Obviously, that worked out well for us. Lucy ran off with my boy and now they're both gone. So we both lost here. I think we can all agree with that. And while I still contend that my son is better off with me, that's not the point right now.

Dusty: What's the point?

Craig: The point is, that night in that garage, everything came to a head. And now, looking back at it, it was almost inevitable. And the people that were there, they know what happened. Everyone in this room, we don't need a judge and jury to place the blame. Do we? So the truth is, that night -- and what led up to it -- can't be undone. So what do we have to do? All of us? We have to move on from it, right? So that's why I've decided to let the matter go.

Emily: You're just going to let it go?

Craig: Yeah, just like that.

Emily: Just like --

Dusty: Excuse me, are you're okay with this?

DA: I'm willing to respect Mr. Montgomery's wishes in this case.

Craig: I would think so. I'm the injured party here. I'm the one who took a bullet in the chest. And this is how I wish to resolve it.

DA: My office will issue a statement later today that the charges of attempted murder against Mr. Donovan have been dropped. And as a result, the state won't be charging Mr. Montgomery as an accessory.

Craig: Look at that, I'll be damned. It's what I'd call a win-win.

Craig: Well, don't everyone thank me at once.

Dusty: I want to talk to you. So, help me out. What's the catch?

Jessica: There is no catch.

Dusty: There's always a catch with Montgomery.

Jessica: If he drops the charges against you, the state has no basis to charge him as an accessory. He did it to save himself. But in order to do that, he had to save you, too. So, you want my advice?

Dusty: We still on the clock.

Jessica: You don't have to thank him or anything, but if he's willing to let it go, you let it go.

DA: Ms. Griffin?

Jessica: Yeah?

DA: If you'd come upstairs, we can hammer out the specifics and get your client released.

Jessica: Think about what I said.

Dusty: What you did in there changes absolutely nothing between us.

Craig: I didn't think it would. That's not why I did it.

Dusty: I don't care why you did it. When I walk out that door, the first thing I'm going to do is track down your daughter and my son. And when I find him, we'll disappear. Someplace you'll never find us.

Cop #4: Donovan. Let's get started with your release papers.

Craig: I'm impressed, Emily.

Emily: Go away, Craig.

Craig: The lengths you would go to help Dusty. Now that I know you're on his side, I sort of feel sorry for the guy.

Emily: Yeah, well the feeling's mutual.

Craig: Don't feel sorry for me. The only mistake I made was trusting you.

Emily: And under-estimating me.

Craig: Unlike most people, Emily, I have a very very long memory. I won't forget what happened here.

Emily: I'm sorry. Was that a threat?

Craig: Simple statement of fact.

Emily: Can I quote you in the Intruder?

Craig: Put it above the fold. My attorney will pick up my personal effects and sign my release. Thank you, your hospitality was appreciated. Dusty.

Lily: I just wanted to spend some time with her. Just the two of us. She wouldn't give me an inch. It hurts, she would rather be with someone else rather than me.

Jade: I'm sorry Lily.

Lily: Thank you.

Jade: I know I'm not your daughter -- but if you want, your niece is available. I could spend some time with you.

Lily: Yeah, thank you. Yeah, I would love that. It will be great. I would like that very much.

Jade: Good. So, what do you want to do?

Lily: Letís see, letís have a grand family tradition. Let's have lunch.

Carly: Medium hazel nut, milk, one sugar please.

Henry: Oh.

Carly: Oh, let me help.

Henry: Oh, no please donít. Please donít. I've got it. There you go.

Carly: Well, I really appreciate you finding that vase for me.

Henry: It sort of found me.

Carly: Funny how that happens.

Henry: It's always the last place you look. Anyway, I'm glad I could help. For a change.

Carly: So am I. That piece -- it has sentimental value.

Henry: I'm so sorry that it broke. Something so rare. I hope you can fix it.

Carly: Me too.

Henry: Well, you've got about 10, 15 minutes before the store opens.

Carly: Right, right. Thank you for this, Henry.

Henry: Who am I to stand between a woman and her vase?

Lily: Thank you.

Jade: For what?

Lily: Spending time with me. Just making me feel better. Keeping my mind off things. Thank you very much. Helped a lot.

Jade: You were the one that told me being part of a family means you'll always have someone who's going to be there for you.

Lily: You listen to me?

Jade: No.

Lily: Oh.

Jade: Sometimes. Listen, Faith is really lucky to have you as a mom.

Lily: Thank you. I think it'll be a long time before she feels that way again.

Jade: Give her mood a day. You'll be back on the top of her list of favorite people in no time.

Lily: Don't let that sweet little face hers fool you. She's very stubborn. Very stubborn. Which she's inherited from her father, of course.

Jade: Since when is she so interested in dance? I thought she was all about horses.

Lily: Oh, she was. Until her interest piqued when I said I didn't want to take dance lessons.

Jade: Oh, really?

Lily: Yes. Faith is at the age now where anything her mother says and does, is the completely uncool. Being seen with me is a fate worse than death.

Jade: Oh, come on.

Lily: Yeah, it's okay. It's fine, really. She's happy -- she was happy, and -- it's good. It's fun, its good exercise. She inherited her stubbornness, but she inherited something else from me.

Jade: Your what? Your curves?

Lily: I was going to say my voluptuousness. But -- curves, okay.

Jade: Oh, my gosh. Lily, how many times do I have to tell you? You're beautiful, and your figure is hot.

Lily: Hot?

Jade: Hot.

Lily: No, I don't feel hot. Especially when I look at these pictures. From New Yearís Eve. I see anything but hot. I've just been -- I've been trying. I've been trying hard to lose the last 15 pounds. But every time I think I'm making progress, I see something like this, and it seems like I'm not.

Jade: Well, Lily, I think you look great.

Lily: Thank you.

Jade: But if you think you need to lose some weight, I think I have something that could help.

Emily: It must be nice, knowing you finally get to go home.

Dusty: There's not much waiting for me there.

Emily: Well, Barbaraís there.

Dusty: Yeah. Listen, what you did really could have backfired on you.

Emily: It was worth the risk. Given the chance, I'd do it again. I hope you know that.

Dusty: I do. You got a lot of guts, Stewart.

Emily: Coming from you, that's quite a compliment. Thanks.

Dusty: You did what no one else could do. You backed Montgomery up in a corner for me. I owe you.

Emily: Oh, no, no, come on. You be honest, I owed you.

Dusty: Well, I kept you from going to jail, and you certainly returned the favor.

Emily: Yeah. Well, I still have a lot to make up for with you, and Johnny and Jennifer.

Dusty: Well, we don't have to rehash all that.

Emily: No, I know, I know. Look, I know I haven't given you much reason to trust me. I just want you to know, if there's anything you need -- you or Johnny. All you have to do is ask.

Dusty: I'm glad you said that. 'Cause there's one more thing I need you to do for me.

Craig: I hope it's not too late for breakfast, Greg.

Maitre d': Not at all, Mr. Montgomery.

Craig: Excellent. Thank you.

Maitre d': Here you go.

Craig: Coffee. Black. And lots of it.

Maitre d': I'll bring it right over. Will you be dining alone?

Craig: Apparently not. Are you following me now, Meg? Talk about sending you mixed signals.

Meg: Well, then I'll be very clear. So there isn't any confusion. I want to know why you did it.

Craig: You lost me.

Meg: You had Dusty right where you wanted him. Behind bars, out of your way. You could have gone after Lucy and Johnny without any interference. But instead, you risk everything and corroborate Emilyís story.

Craig: Give yourself a little bit of credit there, Meg. Emily didn't do this whole thing on her own. It's all right. You don't have to say anything. I know, I won't tell.

Meg: You could have gone to jail, Craig.

Craig: Oh, suddenly you care? All right, you really want to know why I went along with it?

Meg: Well, that depends. Are you going to tell me the truth?

Craig: Always.

Meg: Okay, then, yeah, I want to know.

Craig: I did it for you.

Meg: So, you confess to changing the blanks in Dusty's gun for old bullets, you let him walk, for me?

Craig: Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but you did come over to my house and ask me to consider doing just that, right?

Meg: Yeah, and you said you'd never do it, that you wanted to see Dusty rot in jail.

Craig: Well, maybe beautiful women can do more than just change their own mind. On occasion, they can change a man's mind, too. You tell anyone I said that, I'll deny it.

Meg: So, that's all there was to it? You changed your mind?

Craig: Are you really here just to, like, rail on me for taking your advice? I did the right thing. Where's my reward?

Meg: What, you want me to thank you?

Craig: I guess that would be pushing it, wouldn't it?

Meg: Yeah, and you don't push.

Craig: Not today. And besides, like you said, with Dusty free and clear, he'll lead me right to Lucy and Johnny. And I'm counting on that.

Meg: So, once again, at the end of the day, it's all about getting what you want.

Craig: Let me let you in on a little secret. At the end of the day, it's all it's about for anyone. Wait, wait, wait, wait. While you have me in a moment of honesty -- last night -- Meg, the things you said, it made me think, examine the decisions I've made, actions I've taken. Grudges that I've held onto. I took a long, hard look at my life, I didn't like what I saw.

Meg: I did all that, did I?

Craig: I told you I was ready to make some big changes in my life. You pushed me to that. I'd like to show you what kind of person I'm capable of being.

Meg: You have.

Craig: I can be a better man, Meg. Let me prove it to you.

Emily: So, what do you need me to do?

Dusty: I need you to be careful. I heard what Craig said to you on the way out.

Emily: Oh, I barely paid attention to him.

Dusty: You got to be careful. He plays dirty. You, of all people, know that.

Emily: Yeah, I do. I certainly do. You know, if he has something planned, I'll be ready.

Dusty: Good.

Emily: So what about you? What's next?

Dusty: Me, I'm probably gonna pack up and head down to Montega.

Emily: Oh, are you going to go see Sierra?

Dusty: I'll pay her a visit. I'm sure she knows where Lucy and my son are. I got to get my son back.

Emily: I know. I hope you find them. Johnny needs his father.

Dusty: Yeah.

Emily: Dusty, you take care of yourself, too. Because you and Craig, you still want the same thing.

Dusty: Yeah. But look who I have in my corner. I'll see you.

Emily: Yeah.

Jade: If you're serious about losing weight, these might come in handy.

Lily: What are these? What, are these diet pills?

Jade: Yeah.

Lily: You take these, Jade?

Jade: Not all the time. Just sometimes, on special occasions, if I know I have a date with Adam and I want to wear my size 2 jeans.

Lily: Size 2? [Lily pretends to sob] It's been so long. I don't know. I don't know about this. I mean, I'm not a big fan of taking pills for any reason -- but for vanity?

Jade: That's not true. You took prenatal vitamins.

Lily: No, no. That's different.

Jade: It's not that different. Just think of this as a vitamin that helps you lose weight. Listen, I'm not trying to talk you into anything. Just, it works for me.

Lily: Size 2, huh? Oh, why not? Sure. Cheers.

Henry: "Who's laughing now" in the fourth. That's cute, I like that. "Payback patty" in the fifth. Whoa.

Katie: What do you think you're doing? You lied to me, Henry. You're not working today. At least, not as someone's chauffeur. I know that because I've been following you. That's right, I followed you. I want to know what the hell you just said to Carly.

Henry: Now, I --

Katie: No, don't even -- don't even think about lying to me, again. 'Cause I know what you said to Carly. There's only one thing you could have told her to get her to run out of here like that. You know where Simon is.

Carly: Henry, if this is a trap, I will squeeze your neck until your eyes pop out of your skull. [Cell phone rings] Hello?

Simon: Carly?

Carly: Simon -- Simon, are you okay?

Simon: Much better, now I hear your voice. I miss you.

Carly: Me, too. Oh, Simon, I'm so glad you're all right. I wasn't sure that I'd ever hear your voice again.

Simon: No, impossible. Man, I'm going crazy without you.

Carly: Me, too.

Simon: Look, Carly, I need to say this. I almost told you last night, but -- I didn't, and I wish I did.

Carly: You're sorry about this. I know, so am I.

Simon: No, it's not that. Although I am sorry. Of course I am. More than you'll ever know, but -- man, I hate doing this over the phone -- I just need you to know that -- that no matter what, I love you.

Carly: I love you, too. You know that. Simon?

Simon: Yeah, wait, Carly, there's more. I just don't know how I can bring myself to say it.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Adam: I kissed your wife and you can't get over it.

Jack: If Henryís helping Simon, he's going to pay for it.

Simon: Where the hell are we going?

Henry: You'll find out when we get there. Now, sit down and shut up.
