Jack: So what's going on here?

Vienna: Hi, Jack! We were just chasing the chicken. Did you see her?

Brad: Chicken.

Jack: She flew out into the yard as I was coming in. I take it you didn't notice.

Vienna: Well, at least she's out of the house.

Brad: Yeah.

Vienna: Thanks for your help with everything. I'm gonna go and have a bath.

Brad: I could help you with that.

Vienna: You know, I think I can manage.

Brad: I'm loving farm work.

Jack: Oh, so you're actually doing farm work, then?

Brad: Oh, what are you getting all twisted about?

Jack: I thought you were going to help out a little more with the chores, Brad. Taking care of the stock, doing repairs. You know, it's bad enough that every time I come in here you're sitting on your duff. And now you've decided to take up rolling around with Vienna?

Brad: You got a problem with that?

Jack: Yeah!

Brad: Why? Why, because you wish Vienna was rolling around with you?

Faith: Having a snack?

Lily: No. We're having company. Holden!

Holden: Hey there.

Lily: Hey.

Holden: How are you, Gorgeous?

Lily: Oh, thanks better now.

Holden: Hey, Sweetie. What's wrong with you?

Faith: Mom invited company for dinner.

Lily: Uh, excuse me. Your father and I both wanted Brad to come over for dinner.

Holden: Brad.

Lily: You invited him? You invited him and Jack and the kids?

Holden: I'll be right back.

Lily: You forgot?

Holden: You know what, I'll get them to come.

Lily: What if they're busy?

Holden: Brad -- he's never busy. And Jack -- he'll come. I'll be right back.

Lily: Well, that certainly throws off my schedule.

Faith: Aren't those for Cousin Brad?

Lily: Right. Just Brad. Thank you for saving me from myself.

Susan: Hey.

Emily: What are you doing here?

Susan: I'm here to see my grandson before he heads off to boarding school, if you don't mind.

Emily: What, did Tom call you?

Susan: No, Daniel called me. Why, are you angry?

Emily: Angry? Tom announces that he's decided to send my child off to boarding school without a warning? Yeah, I'm a little angry.

Susan: Honey, Honey. You know Daniel hasn't been himself since the kidnapping. He can't sleep, he can't concentrate.

Emily: Mom, he just needs time.

Susan: You've been worried about him yourself.

Emily: I don't want him to go! He's my son. I can't go months without seeing him.

Susan: But if it's best for Daniel --

Emily: So what? Who knows what's best? You? Tom?

Susan: I think you do.

Emily: Yeah. I just don't know if I can go through with it.

Casey: I've got to catch up to him and tell him.

Adam: Tell him what?

Casey: That I'm the one who messed up. I took those bonds.

Adam: What?

Casey: Yeah. I followed Will to Crash. He locked up like he said. He set the alarm. And then I went in there and turned the alarm off, took the bonds and trashed the place.

Adam: Why?

Casey: To cover my gambling debts.

Adam: Oh, Man.

Casey: Yeah, I know, I know. I can't believe I did this. But I did. I can't believe I messed this up for Gwen. The demo, the record exec, everything. Now I've got to go and tell him.

Adam: You're not going anywhere.

Casey: I've got to tell them.

Adam: You owe people, Casey. Way more than you owe Will and Gwen.

[Banging]

Gwen: Who's there?

[Iris looks around to see where to put the bond and drops it on the floor by the bedroom and hides there when she sees Gwen and than sneaks out the door]

Gwen: It's probably just a mouse. Just a stupid, stupid mouse.

[Gwen screams]

Will: What's wrong?

Gwen: You scared me.

Will: You scared me. You okay?

Gwen: Yeah. I think we have a mouse. I want you to get rid of it.

[Gwen chuckles]

Will: Okay. What do you want me to do?

Gwen: Catch it, and take it into the woods and humanely release it.

Will: All right. I'll get one of those be nice to mouse traps when we leave. Are you ready to go?

Gwen: You want to go already?

Will: Yeah. You said you wanted to register for classes.

Gwen: Yeah, you know, I don't know. I mean, I wish I was really excited about going back to school, you know, at least get my mind off of other stuff.

Will: That's not happening, huh?

Gwen: No. I can't really get my head to stop. I mean, for months, my whole life was about music and rehearsing and recording - - it's over now.

Will: I'm sorry.

Gwen: I'm sorry. I told myself I wouldn't put you through this. It's not your fault.

Will: I'm the one who lost the bonds.

Gwen: You didn't -- you didn't loose them. Just forget that I said anything. You're right. I should go back to school.

Will: No. Take some time, veg out a little bit, wait for some inspiration.

Gwen: I love you. I love you so much.

Will: I love you, too. It's freezing in here.

Gwen: Yeah, I was going to make a fire. I thought we could make popcorn, get cozy.

Will: I like where your head's at. But you know what, we need more wood.

Gwen: I am going to come with you.

Will: Why, are you scared of a little mouse?

Gwen: Yep.

Adam: You think this is about money? I went out on a limb to cover for you, Casey. Lent you over $1,000, I didn't tell anybody, and all because you promised you'd quit gambling.

Casey: Yeah, and I tried to stop. But I couldn’t. I kept getting sucked back in.

Adam: You think this is coming clean? You gamble because you like it. And if you'd won instead of lost, you wouldn't be itching to tell anybody anything. Not me, not Will and not Gwen.

Casey: Okay, yeah, you're right. I went off the deep end a little bit. I already tried to get it under control, and I couldn’t. And then I took Mom's money.

Adam: No, you stole it, you mean.

Casey: Yeah, but I was gonna tell her. And I'm still gonna tell her. I just need to tell Will and Gwen first.

Adam: Would you just wait a minute? What do you think is going to happen when you tell Mom and Tom this, huh? He just had a heart attack.

Casey: I know!

Adam: A heart attack brought on by stress, Casey. What do you think this will do to him?

Casey: I don't know! I don't know what to do. I know I don't want to stress them out any more, but I've got to tell them.

Adam: Well actually, no, you don’t.

Tom: You two coming in, or are you gonna stand out here all day?

Susan: We'll be right there. You're a good mom. You'll do the right thing. Hey, Tom. How are you doing?

Tom: I'm okay. I think the heart attack was harder on everybody else, actually. Em? This is important to Daniel. He wants to do this.

Emily: Is he up in his room?

Tom: Yeah. Hey, Daniel! Your mom and Grandma are here.

Daniel: Grandma!

Susan: Hey. Hi, Sweetheart!

Daniel: Hi.

Susan: I hear you're all excited about that new school you're going to.

Daniel: Yeah, yeah! They got cool dorms. And lacrosse team and a hockey team and even a rugby team!

Emily: Oh, rugby? Wow. I didn't know that. How about a hug for your mom?

Daniel: Hi, Mom.

Emily: Hey, Honey. Oh, you. So, you all packed?

Daniel: Almost.

Emily: Great. I was thinking, maybe instead of Margo and Tom driving you to school, I can take you?

Daniel: I don't know.

Tom: I don't think that's a good idea, Emily.

Emily: Why not? Why not? I think it's a great idea. We could spend some time together. And I'll take you to all those greasy spoon truck stops. And then when we get to your school, you could show me your room and I could help you get everything ready.

Tom: You know, why don't you do it some other time? There'll be a parents' weekend coming up.

Emily: No, I want to be with my son now. What's wrong with that? Were you trying to keep me from him?

Tom: No, I'm not.

Susan: Tom, why don't we go in the other room and give these two some time alone, okay?

Tom: Sure.

Emily: Hey, sit down. I want to chat with. So, this school thing. It was quite a surprise, huh? Your daddy said that it was your idea. You would tell me if it wasn't, right? You would tell me? Daniel, I know you were so scared when that man tried to take you. I was scared, too. But I promise -- I promise that you're safe. And you got Margo in charge of all those detectives. And they'll protect you. And Daddy will always protect you. And I will always protect you.

Daniel: I know.

Emily: So then why do you have to go away? I know Grandma's house is small and it's not fun to have friends over or anything. So I was thinking, maybe we could get a house of our own, just the two of us. In a new neighborhood with lots of kids. Would you like that?

Daniel: I guess.

Emily: And see, then you wouldn't have to go away. Because Daniel, I don't want to lose you. I'm sorry, but if there's anything I can do to make you stay, anything at all --

Daniel: Mom – Mom, don't cry. If you don't want me to go, I won't go.

Emily: Oh, God, Daniel, thank you. Thank you.

[Door opens]

Luke: Hey, Faith.

Faith: Hi.

Luke: What is up with the hors d'oeuvres?

Faith: We're having company.

Luke: Mmm. These are good.

Lily: Hey, hey, hey. No, no. Those are for guests.

Luke: What? I just had a couple.

Lily: Couple --

Luke: Who's coming?

Lily: Brad's coming. Brad, Jack and the kids. How was school?

Luke: Mom, you've got to stop doing that.

Lily: What?

Luke: Asking me about school like you're expecting me to say that I got beat up by a bunch of gay bashers between fourth and fifth period.

Lily: I just worry about you. If someone gives you a hard time --

Luke: You will be the first to know.

Lily: Really?

Luke: No. I'm just trying to make you feel better. Hey, call me when dinner's ready.

Lily: Okay, okay. Teenage boys have a very interesting interpretation of a couple. The plate is practically empty.

Faith: At least you have time to make some more.

Lily: Yes, that's true. Want to help me?

Faith: You're the one who's all into food. Not me.

Lily: Okay, I know you might be a little moody --we all have our bad days. But you don't have to be rude.

Faith: Sorry.

Lily: Okay.

Jack: This is not about Vienna, Brad. I got a lot on my plate right now.

Brad: I get that.

Jack: And I do want to thank you for cleaning up the kitchen. I really do appreciate that.

Brad: Well, Vienna did most of the work. But I supervised.

Jack: Yeah, I bet you did.

Brad: So are you into her or what? What am I saying? Of course you're into her. She is so hot. It's freaking me out.

Jack: You know what your problem is? You just talk too much. Seriously.

Brad: Come on, I've been gone for years, Man. I thought you'd miss me.

Jack: Think again.

Brad: So how are we gonna work this out? I mean, it's obvious that she wants me -- [Jack scoffs] I know you're in a bad place right now, so if you want -- I could back off.

Jack: Would you just shut up about Vienna? Please just shut up!

Brad: Why are you so sensitive?

Jack: For one thing, she's Emma’s guest, not some toy we picked up for your amusement.

Brad: Okay, if you don't make a move on her, I -- okay, I know, I know, I know. You're afraid of getting rejected.

Jack: No, the one thing I'm afraid of is that my kids might walk in on something that should not be happening on the kitchen floor!

Brad: The kids weren't here.

Jack: They could have been. That's what I'm saying. You gotta start using your head.

Holden: Hey, hey. What's going on?

Brad: Instant replay. Jack and I are into the same woman.

Jack: This is not about a woman. It's about the fact that my brother has the mind of a 12-year-old.

Brad: Jack can't take a joke anymore, you notice that?

Holden: Maybe you should tone it down, then.

Brad: Yeah, yeah. All right, I am sorry. It's just talk. You know me. Come on.

Jack: I'm sorry, too. I guess when Carly left, my sense of humor left with her. What's up?

Holden: Dinner. Lily wanted me to invite you guys over. The kids, too. Where are they?

Jack: J.J.'s at basketball practice, Parker's studying with a friend, Sage is at a play date.

Brad: I don't know how you keep all that straight.

Jack: I'm their father, Brad. I was just gonna have dinner here.

Holden: Well, put that away for some other time. Lily will be pretty upset if you guys don't come. I was supposed to invite you earlier and I forgot.

Brad: I never turn down a free meal. Do I have time to get cleaned up?

Holden: Yeah. Just come over when you're ready.

Jack: Okay.

Holden: Tell the kids what's going on.

Jack: Yeah, all right, you're on.

Brad: Hey, you know what, Man? I'll take care of this. You've been working all day. Go have a beer, relax.

Jack: Thanks, Brad. Appreciate it. I'll see you later.

Holden: Got it. Do me a favor. Can you try to keep things civil tonight?

Brad: Sure, Man. There's nothing to fight about, right? Wow, wow. Where are you going?

Vienna: Just here. I like to look good.

Brad: I like what you like.

Vienna: So I see. Making a salad?

Brad: I was. But then I got invited to Lily and Holden’s for dinner.

Vienna: Oh.

Brad: Want to join me?

Emily: You don't want to go?

Daniel: Not if you don't want me to.

Emily: No, I don't want you to go. I want you to stay around me at least until you're 115 years old. Maybe older. But that wouldn't be very good, would it? You'd be this rickety old man who never learned to play rugby, living with your mother, and that would be --

Daniel: Gross.

Emily: Yeah, that would be gross. So you know what I want? I want you to go away to that school and learn great things and meet great friends. And promise to call me once a week.

Daniel: Okay.

Emily: Where are you going?

Daniel: I printed this out for you. It's a picture of my school and the phone number in case you want to call me if you get sad.

Emily: Come here. You know what? Whenever I think of you, I'm going to be the opposite of sad, okay? I love you. Go to your grandma, okay, and your daddy. Tell them to come back in.

Daniel: Okay.

Tom: Right, all set? So, why don't you run upstairs and finish packing.

Daniel: Okay. Bye, Mom. Love you.

Emily: Oh, I love you, too. I love you. Go have fun, okay?

Daniel: Bye. See you later.

Susan: I'll go help Daniel.

[Emily sobbing]

Tom: Hey, I know. I know. Thank you for loving him enough to let him do this.

Emily: Don't.

Tom: I didn't mean that to sound like --

Emily: No, you make me sound like you're giving me a medal for being mother of the year?

Tom: I know you love him.

Emily: You know something, that's not why I did it. I didn't do it because it's the right thing or it's a good thing. I didn't even do it because I love him. I did it because that child loves me. And I never want that to change.

Casey: I can't put it off anymore. Mom and Dad are going to find out eventually.

Adam: They don't have to. Just let me take care of it.

Casey: How?

Adam: I'll handle it, okay? That's all you need to know.

Casey: No, I'm not going to let someone else get in trouble for what I did.

Adam: Would you just leave everything to me? And don't say anything to anybody. Promise me?

Casey: Why do you want to help me?

Adam: You're my little brother. I've been looking out for you my whole life. I can't stop now.

Casey: Yeah, but you can't give them the money back. It's already gone.

Adam: Hey, don't worry about it. You just let me take care of it.

Casey: All right. Thanks, Adam.

Adam: Yeah. You know, we're doing this for the right reason, you know? We don't want Tom back in the hospital.

Casey: Right.

Adam: So relax. It's all going to turn out just fine.

Will: All right, I'll start the fire and you can get naked.

Gwen: Wait a minute. Why can't I build the fire while you get naked?

Will: Okay. Sounds good.

Gwen: Uh-huh. Ah, sneaky. Very sneaky. You build the fire while I put this stuff away.

Will: I liked my plan better.

Gwen: Tough. But if you're good, I'll get the popcorn naked.

Will: Sweet. I know. It could have been amazing.

Gwen: Yeah. Yeah, it could have been.

Will: Well, it still can be. It's not over.

Gwen: Yeah, right. Will?

Will: Yeah?

Gwen: What is this?

Will: It looks like one of the bonds my mom gave me. Where'd it come from?

Gwen: It was -- it was right over here, like someone dropped it.

Will: Well, how could that have happened? I don't understand this. I mean, maybe my mom came by --

Gwen: Your mom hasn't been here, not with the bonds.

Will: Well, we don't know that for sure.

Gwen: I mean, why would she come by? I mean, how would she get in? Did you give her a key?

Will: No. Okay, let me just -- let me think about this. I mean, I had the bonds and I took them to Crash, I locked them up. I never even had them here.

Gwen: That's what I thought.

Will: So where did this come from?

Gwen: You're asking me?

Will: No! I mean, I'm thinking out loud. This makes no sense, it's crazy. I just can't figure it out. It's like the person who stole them must have brought them --

Gwen: What, brought them back here and then dropped one?

Will: Well, I don't know, what do you think?

Gwen: I don't know what to think. I mean, I don't understand how bonds that you supposedly never brought home --

Will: What, supposedly?

Gwen: You know, bonds that, you know, disappeared from Crash, suddenly ended up back in our house.

Will: Are you accusing me of breaking into Crash and stealing my own money?

Adam: Not a good idea.

Iris: I thought maybe you'd like a little report.

Adam: So call me. We shouldn't be seen together.

Iris: Who's going to see us? Who's going to care?

Adam: My brother was just here.

Iris: Yeah? I saw him leave. What do you think I am, stupid?

Adam: Did you get it done?

Iris: Yeah, I got it done. Right now, little Gwennie’s probably looking at that very expensive piece of paper and wondering if her good guy husband is really such a good guy after all.

Adam: Nice to see a mother take such an interest in her daughter's happiness.

Iris: Yeah, I don't see you so choked up over your brother's happiness. Don't make like you're better than me. You're not.

Adam: If you say so.

Iris: Look, we want the same thing, right? What's best for Gwen? So, you know, if I happen to make a little money on it, and you get a little closer with my daughter, what's the harm in that?

Adam: You took the words right out of my mouth.

Susan: Are you all right?

Emily: You know, because of me, my son was kidnapped and terrorized, and now he wants to go to a school hundreds of miles away to get rid of me.

Susan: Oh, well, you kids. From the moment you can walk, you're always trying to run away from us.

Emily: Think he'll grow out of this?

Susan: Did you?

Emily: Yeah, way to make me feel better. Thanks.

Susan: Well, this could be an opportunity for you. You could do something positive with your life.

Emily: Yeah, again. What is this? Like, the 4,000th second chance? I've had every opportunity to get my life back together, and I never do. You know, maybe I'm just not wired to be a good girl. Maybe -- [Cell phone rings] Hello? Oh, yeah, hi, Dusty. Yeah, sure, I'll meet you over there. Okay, okay, bye. It was Dusty. He wants me to meet him.

Susan: What? What's up with you two?

Emily: It's just business, business. Actually, maybe it's that opportunity you're talking about. So, can you do me a favor? Can you stay here in case Daniel needs something?

Susan: Well, sure, but don't you think you should do that, too?

Emily: It was hard enough to do the right thing the first time. I don't know if I could do it again.

Natalie: Jack!

Jack: Natalie, how's one of my all-time favorite girls?

Natalie: Where's Sage and Parker and J.J.?

Jack: Well, J.J. and Sage, they're having dinner at one of their friends' house. But Parker's going to be here.

Faith: Parker's coming?

Jack: In a little bit, yeah.

Lily: How about saying hello to Jack?

Faith: Oh, yeah, hi.

Jack: Hi.

Lily: Oh, hi!

Brad: Hey, folks, let's get this party started!

Lily: Brad, it's so good to see you. Welcome back.

Brad: Look at you, wow.

Lily: Hi, how are you?

Brad: You look magnificent.

Lily: Oh, well, thanks.

Brad: Where are your girls? Where are they?

Lily: My girls are right here.

Brad: No.

Lily: Yep.

Brad: No, no. You're way too young to have girls -- they're not girls. You are young ladies.

Vienna: Very lovely young ladies.

Brad: Oh, I'm sorry, Babe, I got distracted. Well, Lily, Natalie, Faith, this -- well, you know, you've met Vienna.

Lily: Actually, I have not met Vienna. How do you do?

Vienna: Very well, thank you.

Brad: Oh, I'm sorry, I just assumed you guys met because she's staying at Emma’s.

Lily: You're still staying at Emma’s? With Jack, Brad and the kids?

Vienna: Yes. Emma, she's been so kind. I'm helping to look after the place while she's away. You know how helpless men are.

Lily: I've heard those rumors.

Vienna: Excuse me. You know what? I'm going to go powder my nose.

Lily: Okay.

Faith: Natalie and I can show her the way.

Lily: You can?

Faith: Sure.

Lily: Okay.

Vienna: Okay.

Vienna: Oh, and Jack? Can you pour me some wine, please?

Jack: Sure, yes.

Brad: Oh, I hope you didn't mind me inviting Vienna. I mean, there is always room for one more, right?

Jack: You should have check with Lily first, though.

Lily: Nope, I've got my water right over there. Thank you.

Brad: Look, I'm sorry, Lily. I just didn't want to leave Vienna, you know, alone at the old farmhouse with nothing but a salad while we're up here on this hill, you know, all feasting like kings. Did you make those? Yeah, did you make those?

Lily: Those? Yes, I did make those. Enjoy, have one.

Brad: Can I? Oh, awesome.

Lily: Of course, please.

Brad: Thank you, I'm starving.

Holden: Hey, you guys made it.

Jack: Yeah, Brad brought company.

Holden: Who?

Lily: That girl that's been staying at your mother’s. Vienna? What's her name?

Holden: Oh, well, that's good, right?

Jack: If it's okay with Lily, it's okay with me.

Lily: The more the merrier. So, Brad, how have you been?

Brad: Terrific, terrific. I've been working down in North Carolina for the past few years.

Lily: Oh, did you like that?

Brad: Loved it. It was great. You know, it was a great company, upward mobility, you know? And they hated to lose me. But when I found out my bro here ran into some rough water, I decided to come back to Oakdale and lend him a hand.

Lily: That's sweet.

Jack: Yeah, lucky me.

Faith: Are you Brad's girlfriend?

Lily: Faith, don't be impolite.

Vienna: No, its fine, she's just curious. You know what? I'm so glad I came. I'm having a wonderful time. They look delicious.

Lily: Canapé, here?

Vienna: Thank you.

Lily: No, have some more.

Vienna: One's my limit.

Lily: I admire your willpower.

Brad: Vienna's good at chasing chickens, too.

Holden: What was that?

Brad: This hen got loose in the house, right, and it's running all over the place and probably thinking we're going to eat it for dinner. And Vienna trips, I fall on top of her, and you know, Jack walks in and thinks we're about to --

Holden: Brad, Brad, Brad --

Brad: Right. He totally jumps to conclusions, you know? And I'm not talking about chickens. Anyway, you know, that's my brother the cop. Always busy doing the right thing to have any fun.

[Brad laughs]

Brad: Thank you, Sweetheart. Okay, then there was this time that -- Jack and I -- [Brad laughs] Snuck into this racing competition. [Jack sighs] Oh, yeah. Remember that, remember that? But we were too young. But Jack could drive like a son of a -- Jack could drive like a son of a gun, and, you know, we were going to make a killing and split the profits.

Jack: Yeah, what was the split on that again?

Brad: 80-20.

Jack: 80-20!

Brad: 80-20! Hold on a second. I found the races, I got him the car to drive. Only fair, only fair.

Jack: I was a sucker.

Lily: Everybody hungry?

Brad: You bet.

Lily: Good, good, good. Holden, can you go refresh everybody's drinks?

Holden: Yeah, sure, sure, sure.

Lily: And Natalie, can you go get Faith for me, please? Okay?

Natalie: Sure.

Lily: Thanks, Honey. Thank you so much.

Vienna: Do you need any help?

Lily: No, no. I got it covered. Thank you.

Holden: Here you go, Brad.

Brad: Oh, thank you. This place looks different.

Holden: Yeah, we had a fire and then we had to do a little redecorating.

Brad: Did you do it yourself? Or did you get some queer type to do it?

Lily: I beg your pardon?

Brad: Well, I mean, no insult, the place, it looks great. I just figured that you maybe got someone who was, you know -- [In an effeminate voice] Fabulous with fabrics and colors.

Holden: Brad -- the thing is --

Lily: What you just said was completely offensive. If you're going to talk like that, I'd like you to leave my home.

Holden: Lily, I'm sure that Brad didn't mean it.

Lily: Brad, I hope you're going to apologize, please?

Brad: Okay, sure, yeah. If you want. But, I mean, what did I say that was so bad? I mean, do you have something against gay decorators?

Jack: Okay, all right, outside, now. Outside, now. Please, now.

Emily: Hey, have you seen Dusty Donovan? I'm supposed to be meeting him here.

Bartender: Hi, Ms. Stewart. Mr. Donovan called and said he's running late.

Emily: Oh --

Bartender: Martini?

Emily: You read my mind. Thank you.

Bartender: Any time.

Steve: Another?

Emily: One's usually my limit, thank you.

Steve: If you're willing to make an exception, I could keep you company.

Emily: And if I don't want any company?

Steve: Then I'll just have to figure out a way to admire you and your empty glass from way over there.

Emily: Well, that could be very lonely.

Steve: So, rescue me. Have another drink. I'm buying.

Casey: Hey, Dad. You don't look so good. You all right?

Tom: Just a little sad about Daniel leaving.

Casey: Where's he going?

Tom: Boarding school, today. You didn't get my message?

Casey: No, my battery died. I've been kind of all over the place. Today, huh? I knew you guys were thinking about it, but --

Tom: Yeah, well, it's a good school, good timing. He got his friends up there. It's a great opportunity for him.

Casey: Well, sign me up.

Tom: I just have to talk myself out of being depressed about it, because I'm going to miss him.

Casey: Yeah, me, too. I mean, I know I don't hang out with him as much as I should, but it's going to be kind of weird not having him running around.

Tom: Yeah.

Casey: Is he upstairs?

Tom: Yeah.

Casey: I'm going to go talk to him.

Tom: Hey, Case.

Casey: Yeah?

Tom: You ever regret not going away to school when you had the chance?

Casey: No. No, O.U. Is a good school, and my friends are there, my girlfriend's in town --

Tom: Yeah. I know there's been a lot going on with you working at Crash, and with your brother, and trying to help Maddie get through that situation. A lot of responsibility. I guess not the -- party-hearty freshman year you expected, huh?

Casey: I've learned a lot. I've messed up a lot too.

Tom: Yeah, what did you mess up?

Casey: I probably could have studied more.

Tom: There's always next semester. Listen sometimes when you have a heart attack you feel the need to say certain things -- I'm not going to get too sappy on you. But, it's been really nice having you close to home. Knowing that I can count on you. You're a great young man. And I'm very, very proud of you.

Gwen: Look, I'm not accusing you of anything.

Will: Yes, you are.

Gwen: No, I'm not. I'm just trying to figure things out.

Will: No, that's what I'm trying to do. What you're trying to doing is -- you think I'm lying to you.

Gwen: No, I never said that!

Will: So you believe me when I say that I have no idea how this got here.

Gwen: You want me to believe that bond just appeared out of nowhere?

Will: Well, what would be the point -- what's the point of me building up your dream and then trashing it?

Gwen: I don't know -- quit putting words in my mouth!

Will: Okay, so do you believe me or not?

Gwen: You've just been so happy since we quit working on the demo.

Will: What?

Gwen: All this talk about me going back to school. And we get to spend more time together.

Will: Yeah, I want to spend time with you. I love you, you're my wife! And then you're disappointed, so I was trying to cheer you up. How does that become incriminating evidence against me?

Gwen: Look I just don't know how that bond ended up in our house unless --

Will: Unless what? Unless I brought it here. Which makes no sense, at all? I went to the club and planted it there, and then I steal my own money, just so I can sabotage your career. Is that what you think of me?

Luke: People say things. And sometimes they think about it first and sometimes they don’t. But I have to learn to handle that. Mom, you're not always going to be there to run interference.

Lily: Did you expect me to just stand there and take that, from that bigot?

Holden: Lily, there's a happy medium between shutting the guy down and going off on him.

Lily: He insulted our son!

Holden: He didn't know that Luke is gay.

Lily: So that makes it right?

Holden: He wasn't trying to be malicious.

Lily: I don't want him here. No, never again.

Luke: Mom, Mom we really don't have to go there. I mean the guy's willing to apologize.

Holden: Brad he can be rude, but his heart's is in the right place. He loves his family.

Lily: Did that sound like love to you, Holden?

Luke: Mom, why are you making such a big deal out of this?

Lily: I don't know. I'm just anxious. It's been a long time since we had a dinner party.

Holden: Just try to relax, okay?

Lily: Okay. Okay thanks. Thank you.

Brad: Luke is gay?

Brad: Luke is gay? Why didn't somebody tell me?

Jack: Well it just never occurred to me that you would start spouting off like some kid of homophobe in the middle of a party.

Brad: I'm not a homophobe. I mean some of my best friends are gay. I just didn't know. Wow, Cousin Holden, he's got a son who's light in the loafers.

Jack: Brad, please!

Brad: You know what, now that you mention it, I should have seen it right off.

Jack: Would just shut -- stop, shut your mouth!

Vienna: Jack, no, no! He's your brother! The two of you have to stop fighting over me.

Holden: Hey, hey, hey. No need to be stressed out, okay. It's just a family dinner.

Lily: I know, I know.

Holden: I'll go check on Ethan.

Lily: Okay. I'll check on dinner. Girls don't go to far, dinner's going to be ready in a few minutes.

Faith: Okay.

Natalie: Are you going to eat dinner?

Faith: Why wouldn't I?

Natalie: I heard you throwing up.

Faith: I'm fine.

Natalie: How could you be fine if you were barfing five minutes ago?

Faith: Don't say anything. Promise not to tell Mom or Dad.

Lily: I hope everybody's hungry.

Emily: I appreciate the offer, but I'm expecting someone.

Steve: And he's kept you waiting? The guy's an idiot.

Emily: Oh no, no, it's not a date. It's business.

Steve: But you're not in the mood.

Emily: I've had a pretty rough day so far. So, no, I'm not exactly feeling up to it.

Steve: All the more reason why you should have another drink with me.

Emily: Now, what would my business associate say if he walked in and saw me having a drink with a complete stranger?

Steve: Then how about we have that drink where no one can see you.

Emily: What did you have in mind? A cozy corner somewhere?

Steve: That could work. But if we go up to my room, privacy's guaranteed. Shall we?

Emily: Why not?

Gwen: Hey. Look, I'm sorry, okay? I'm -- I just -- I don't know what to think.

Will: You should. You should know me better than that. I didn't stage the break-in at Crash, Gwen. I went there, I put the bonds in the safe, and I turned the alarm on. You think I'm lying about that?

Gwen: No.

Will: Now who's lying?

Gwen: Okay, it just doesn't make any sense will. I mean come on, you want me to take something at face value, and I can't!

Will: So great! So my wife thinks I'm a thief and a liar!

Gwen: I never said that.

Will: You didn't not say it either.

Gwen: Oh come on Will it's not like you've never lied to me before!

[Adam is outside their door and overhears them]

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Gwen: Did you do it? Did you steal the bonds?

Vienna: Well I want Jack.

Brad: I want you to have him.

Vienna: How bad?

Brad: Real bad.

Lucinda: Where is our partner Emily.

Dusty: She should be here.

Steve: Take you clothes off.
