Meg: Penicillin, 500 milligrams. Propanadol, 60 milligrams.

Paul: You shouldn't worry. I'm sure you didn't miss anything.

Cheri: Stop right there. What exactly do you think you're doing?

Casey: I know you want to think that I wouldn't set Will up. And that I'm a better person than this, but I'm not.

Maddie: You are. You look out for other people.

Casey: Not this time. I owed way too much money, I didn't know how to make things right.

Maddie: There's got to be more to it than that.

Casey: More than stealing from my own mom, and then stealing from my best friend? Trashing my grandma's club? And then embarrassing my mom in front of everyone she works with. And I blew you off to gamble. I mean, I can go on and on.

Maddie: There has to be a reason, though.

Casey: It's because I couldn't face what I'd done. All right, I let down every person that ever trusted me. You know what that feels like?

Maddie: It has to feel terrible.

Casey: Yeah, and the worst part is it doesn't even matter that I'm sorry.

Maddie: It matters to me. And I just wish that you would have told me what was going on.

Casey: So, you could've worried?

Maddie: No, I could've helped you.

Casey: Nah, no one can help me.

Maddie: People want to try. And you need to help yourself by admitting what really happened with those bonds.

Casey: I just did!

Maddie: You left something out.

Casey: Like what?

Maddie: Like the fact you weren't the one that made Will look like a thief and a liar.

Will: Go away, Jade.

Jade: Just listen.

Will: What? To you defend Casey and trash my brother? Forget it.

Jade: Everything I've told you about Adam is true. He's the one who set you up. He's scamming you.

Will: Well, I guess you haven't heard, but Casey just confessed to that.

Jade: Well, if he did, he lied.

Will: You're the one who's lying. You just want to get back at Adam because he dumped you.

Jade: This is not about me. This is about you! Ever since your brother's been home, he's been working you. You can't trust him.

Will: And I can trust you? I'm sorry. I made that mistake before. It's not going to happen again. So, please just leave me and my brother alone.

Jade: Will, Will, if Adam is all about helping you and being loyal, tell me one thing. Why is he leaving town tonight?

Gwen: What are you doing out here all by yourself?

Adam: I was just going to ask you're the same thing.

Gwen: Well, I've been looking all over for you.

Adam: Yeah?

Gwen: Yeah, I called everywhere I could think of. Why aren't you picking up your phone?

Adam: I forgot to charge my battery. Why are you looking for me?

Gwen: I thought maybe you could help me talk to Will. Hey, what's with the backpack? Are you going somewhere?

Adam: Yeah, this was totally last minute, but I've got to go to London.

Gwen: Wait, tonight? Why? What's the rush?

Adam: This guy, this record exec I know from L.A. You know, he gave me a call and he listened to some of your songs and he's thinking he might want to sign you.

Gwen: What, what guy? What record company? What songs --

Adam: Martin at Coram? You remember? Oh, you might not. Anyway, I sent him the unfinished demo, you know the first five tracks.

Gwen: Wait, without telling me?

Adam: Yeah, I wasn't sure he'd be open to a pitch, but if he liked it, I know I'd be able to get the financing to finish it -- I just didn't want to tell you, because if it didn't work out, I didn't want you to be disappointed.

Gwen: So you were only going to tell me if it was good news?

Adam: Yeah, that was kind of the idea. You know, I'll call you from over there. I got to get to the -- I can't miss the flight --

Gwen: Whoa, whoa, wait, hey! Look, you can't leave right now. There's way too much going on here.

Adam: Look, Gwen, I really can't pass this chance up.

Gwen: It's not for my sake. Your brother just arrested. I think you need to be here for him.

Adam: I canít. You know, you and me, we've already lost a momentum on our career. I can't let this go by.

Gwen: Whoa, hold on. What are you going to do? Walk to the airport?

Adam: Yeah, I was going to hitch. The battery in my car died, and I couldn't call anyone because my cell phone was dead.

Gwen: Wow. Batteries are just dying all over the place.

Adam: Besides, you know, you were with Will, and my parents are tied up with Casey --

Gwen: What are you so angry about?

Adam: I'm fine.

Gwen: No, you didn't look fine when you were arguing with Jade. I went to Tom and Margoís looking for you. And I showed up when I saw what looked like a pretty nasty fight.

Adam: I didn't see you.

Gwen: Well, you took off before I had a chance to catch up with you.

Adam: What about Jade? Did you talk to her?

Gwen: No, I should've gone after her and made her tell me where Will was. She always seems to know these things.

Adam: Stay away from Jade, okay? She's toxic. And whatever crap she says about me, don't believe it.

Gwen: Don't worry, believe me, there's not a word that could come out of that girl's mouth that I would believe.

Jade: I told Adam that I was on to him. That I knew that he lied to turn Gwen against you.

Will: And you've never done anything like that.

Jade: All right. Fine. I deserved that. But I know how he thinks. And you can give me that, at least.

Will: No, I don't think you do.

Jade: He didn't even deny setting you up.

Will: Well, maybe he felt like he shouldn't have to defend himself to you.

Jade: Or maybe he wanted to shut me up so he can get out of town before the truth comes out! Which is going to be a little difficult without his keys.

Will: How's that?

Jade: I tossed them in the bushes at Margo and Tomís. He's probably still crawling around looking for them.

Will: And you're proud of that?

Jade: I'm helping you out.

Will: No, you're just jealous because he took interest in Gwen, because he believes in her talent.

Jade: No, that's why you're jealous. Adam is a user and he should be stopped.

Will: So you're going to rope me in to fight your battle for you? You can forget it!

Jade: You're not listening.

Will: Do you want to fight with me, with Adam, with anyone who's going to take you on. But I'm not going to do it.

Jade: You'd rather fight with Gwen?

Will: I just got back from seeing Casey. And he confessed to everything. To breaking in at Crash, planting the bond --

Jade: Yeah, that's because he's too decent to turn in his own brother, which is more than I can say for Adam.

Will: You can save your conspiracy theory, Jade.

Jade: Fine. Don't listen to me. But look at the facts. Look at your marriage. It's falling apart. And look how the robbery brought Adam and Gwen closer together.

Will: Yeah, it's like you had a hand in it.

Jade: I saw how much my lies about being pregnant hurt you and Gwen. And I'm trying to make up for that.

Will: And make Adam suffer.

Jade: So you don't even care that when I flat-out accused him of trying to make it look like you were jealous of Gwen's success, he didn't even deny it?

Casey: I really wish it wasn't true, but I stole those bonds.

Maddie: And I get why you did it. I grew up around gamblers, remember? My mom was always about to make a killing on the next big race, or the next number that was going to hit. It was the wrong kind of hope, and it made her do stupid things.

Casey: This was beyond stupid.

Maddie: You honestly believed that you were going to be able to pay everyone back.

Casey: I know, how crazy was that?

Maddie: At least you wanted to make good on what you owed.

Casey: And I still have to -- somehow.

Maddie: And you're going to. Okay? And that's why no one, not even you, can make me believe you would set Will up. You wouldn't do that to your best friend. You wouldn't let him take the fall for something that he didn't even do.

Casey: Why? I already have. Remember when I got Gwen pregnant?

Maddie: Come on, that was -- you've changed since then.

Casey: Obviously, not that much.

Maddie: But if you didn't want to point the finger at Will, who did? And why do you want to protect them?

Casey: It's not like that.

Maddie: Who are you covering for?

Casey: No one! All right, I'm still the same screw-up I've always been. Ask my parents. They see it, and so should you.

Jack: Yeah, I'm back. I can handle Caseyís booking if you want me to.

Margo: Yeah, you brought him in. You should carry through.

Jack: I hated arresting him, Margo. You got to know that.

Margo: It's your job, Jack. I've been there myself.

Jack: Yeah, with me. When Carly left the country and you looked the other way when you heard my story.

Margo: Apples and oranges, Jack. Besides, Carly was being sought be Leonian law enforcement --

Jack: I just wish there was something I could do for Casey.

Margo: Well, you can. You can pray that Tom can convince the judge to grant an immediate bail hearing.

Jack: Oh, that's going to be a tough call. Judge doesn't want to show favoritism.

Margo: Yeah. And being my son isn't going to be a real plus for Casey in lock up.

Jack: I can make sure -- can make sure there's a guard down there.

Margo: Look, I don't want my son here overnight.

Jack: I can make sure there's a guard there at all times --

Margo: All right, all right thanks, thanks, thanks.

Jack: Can I do anything for you? Do you want anything?

Margo: Yeah, I'd like a break. I think I'm due for one, don't you?

Meg: You're right. I am on top of everything, this time.

Paul: Why are you so out of sorts?

Meg: I'm tired, okay? I've been pulling some extra shifts. Why are you here, Paul?

Paul: I have an appointment with my neurologist, Dr. Kipner.

Meg: Well, he's heavy into research.

Paul: That's what my mother heard. I'm hoping he can make it so visions of pools of blood don't just appear suddenly in front of my eyes.

Meg: Well, I hope it works for you. I mean that.

Paul: Can I ask you a question?

Meg: What now?

Paul: Well, you said before that you were on top of things this time? Don't you usually triple check a dose?

Meg: Yes.

Paul: So what's different?

Meg: Nothing. Why are you harping on this?

Paul: No, I'm just curious.

Meg: Well, don't be.

Paul: What is okay? It's not okay to be concerned about you?

Meg: How many different ways do I have to tell you we're not together again?

Craig: How is Oakdaleís Florence Nightingale?

Meg: Feeling more like Typhoid Mary.

Craig: Stop. You're a terrific nurse.

Meg: Terrific nurses don't kill their patients, Craig. And if anyone finds out, I will never work again.

Craig: Do you want to keep your voice down? I think there's more cops in this hospital than doctors. And I thought we agreed that you didn't kill anyone.

Meg: I know. You keep saying that, but it doesn't make it true.

Craig: What happened was a tragic accident.

Meg: Caused by my negligence.

Craig: It's over, Meg. Put it behind you.

Meg: I can't! You covered up what I did with a fake diary. But I know my patient wasn't suicidal. I know it was my fault that she died and I'm the one who has to live with that.

Craig: And you think that guilt and shame is going to resurrect her?

Meg: How can you be so callous? And not just about Sarah? Both of us could end up in jail if they found out what we did.

Craig: I knew the risks, and it was worth it, if I can keep you from feeling responsible for something that was out of your hands. I just -- I just wanted to take that away.

Meg: I know you did it for me.

Craig: Great. Then make peace with it. And remember you're not alone. For now on, we're in this together.

Emily: I'm having a cocktail. I don't know why that is any of your business.

Cheri: From what I saw, it looked like you were about to do a little business of your own.

Emily: Exactly what are you implying?

Cheri: Oh, I'll come straight out and say it. This is my territory. Exclusive to me and my girls.

Emily: Excuse me?

Cheri: I don't know who you work for, or if you fly solo.

Emily: I don't work for anyone. And I haven't done anything wrong. Now, get out of my way.

Dusty: Is there a problem?

Emily: No, no, there's no trouble here. Nothing wrong. I accidentally took this nice lady's seat when she was in the ladies room. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. It won't happen again.

Cheri: Oh, it's all right. I'm just a creature of habit. I like my spot.

Emily: Well, that was weird. Hey, Chaz. How's it going?

Chaz: How's it going?

Emily: Good.

Dusty: I never expected to see you here.

Emily: It's funny. I've never been. This is my first time.

Dusty: Mine too. This guy wanted to drink scotch somewhere other than the Lakeview.

Chaz: Well, let's order already. Emily?

Emily: A vodka martini, thank you.

Chaz: Two single malts neat. And another vodka martini for the lady.

Dusty: How about you? How did you end up here?

Emily: Me? I'm going to make right on those promises I was tossing around at the Worldwide meeting. Increase circulation. I'm meeting a source.

Dusty: Oh, so you're doing a story? That's good.

Chaz: I hope it's not a happy hooker.

Emily: Why would you think that?

Chaz: You don't have any clue who you were just talking to?

Emily: She is?

Chaz: She calls herself Cheri. She runs a high-priced call girl operation right out of here.

Emily: What are you kidding? I had no idea.

Chaz: She's very polished, but she is one tough broad. You do not want to cross paths with this chick.

Dusty: Are you speaking from personal experience, Chaz?

Chaz: Donovan, don't be a wise guy, all right? I like the ladies, not working girls.

Emily: Okay, okay, I will certainly steer clear of Madame Cherie in the future.

Dusty: That would be smart.

Darian: Hey, that last minute shot at the buzzer, awesome.

Luke: Yeah, but you had like, four team rebounds. I mean, coach is going to make you M.V.P.

Lucinda: Hey, hi.

Luke: Oh, hey, Grandma.

Lucinda: Fresh young face. Do you have time to hang out with me?

Luke: Yes, please. Please, please slide in.

Lucinda: Slide in.

Luke: But a question, since when did you ever go to al's?

Lucinda: Oh, well, -- well, when I was undergoing chemo, I had one of the oncologists said that I should have milkshakes. You know, a milkshake. To keep up my strength and -- I'm addicted.

Luke: Hey, I'll never tell.

Lucinda: Thank you. So, do you and Darian, Shamar -- do you come here after practice every time?

Luke: How do you know their names?

Lucinda: I've been to six games this season.

Luke: Yeah, but I don't expect you to memorize the team roster.

Lucinda: Shamar's a little streaky, but he makes a decent lay-up. Gary, Gary, you know he's not bad at the free throw line, when he focuses. Of course, you, my Darling, you -- they don't hold the candle to you because you are the star.

Luke: Oh, and I guess you being my grandmother wouldn't make you biased or anything?

Lucinda: Not at all. Not at all. So, where are the guys rushing off to?

Luke: They have plans.

Lucinda: Plans that didn't include you?

Luke: They had dates, Grandma. With girls. Somehow, I'd be a little out of place.

Paul: So, the MRI didn't show anything abnormal?

Dr. Kipner: I'm sorry, Mr. Ryan. But there's no physiological explanations for you --

Paul: I don't need for you to explain anything to me, I need for you to make them stop. Like, please shock me, drug me, whatever.

Dr. Kipner: I think our best course is to give this time.

Paul: I don't want to spend any more time in this twilight zone. That's why I came to you.

Dr. Kipner: Well, you might be better off with my colleague. She specializes in emotional causes --

Paul: No, no. No more shrinks. You don't understand. When I have these visions, my whole life stops. I can't take it anymore.

Dr. Kipner: Just give it some time. Excuse me.

Meg: Knowing you and I are in anything together really isn't a comfort.

Craig: You know, I really wish that you didn't make me out to be such an ogre.

Meg: Oh, it seems to me that you earned that reputation all on your own.

Craig: Oh, really? As I recall, I've consistently been a gentlemen where you're concerned.

Meg: That's true.

Craig: Yes, it is. After all, I didn't let you embarrass yourself when you had too much to drink.

Meg: I guess I did throw myself all over you.

Craig: In a very charming way. And as tempted as I was, I didn't want any regrets between us.

Meg: I appreciate that.

Craig: I'm glad. Don't think I didn't kick myself after.

Jack: Meg, are you still on duty?

Meg: I just finished a shift.

Jack: Can I borrow you for a couple of minutes?

Meg: Fine. I guess.

Craig: I'll let you have some privacy so you can discuss the latest crisis in the clan --

Jack: No, it's not a family matter. It's a police matter, Craig, and it concerns both of you.

Casey: Well, I'm not in jail yet, so I take it the bail hearing is coming through?

Tom: Well, it's a little more complicated than that. Because of the additional complaint that Will Munson filed against you for obstruction of justice, you are going to have to be rebooked on every charge.

Casey: So, what does that mean?

Tom: Well, you see, it speaks to intent. When you set up a friend, it makes you look like a very calculating human being.

Margo: And that will be a consideration before the judge can consider a decision.

Tom: And I already had to speak to the judge to ask him not to make any exceptions for you because you're my son. I just never thought I'd have to do that.

Casey: I'm sorry, Dad. I really am.

Tom: So tell me, how did we get here? I mean, stealing money, that's one thing --

Margo: That can be, you know, an act of desperation. Not that it's okay.

Tom: But to try to make Will Munson look culpable, that requires some real thinking.

Casey: I really wasn't thinking.

Tom: And Will Munson of all people, he's been like a brother to you.

Margo: And he just lost his father just a few short months ago. And what does this going to do to his marriage to Gwen?

Tom: You're aware that this marriage might not survive this, right? So tell me something, how did it get this far?

Casey: I'm sorry.

Tom: What!

Margo: You know what I'm going to say, don't you?

Tom: Yeah, just save your breath.

Margo: This is exactly the kind of stress you were told to avoid.

Tom: My son is going to have a criminal record for deliberately implicating a lifelong friend. So, I'm supposed to, what? Ignore that?

Margo: But it's not going to help anybody if you go back to the hospital with another heart attack. So, please, Tom, there's got to be a reason for this. We just don't know it yet.

Tom: So, you want to believe that?

Margo: I will believe that.

Tom: And here's what I believe, I have to face the fact that somewhere along the line, I failed that kid.

Margo: No, no, no.

Maddie: No bail, huh?

Casey: No, and the worse part is that they hate me.

Maddie: You can't let them think those things about you. You have to tell them who made Will the fall guy. And you have to do it now!

Will: Adam, open up! Open the door, dammit --

Jade: He's not in there. I told you he's probably -- he's probably taken off in a cab by now.

Will: Yeah, or he's hiding like a coward! Adam? Adam?

Adam: Of course you wouldn't get sucked into Jade's lies. You know better than anyone how destructive she can be.

Gwen: Yeah, first hand.

Adam: I can't believe she took my keys. Threw them in the brush so I wouldn't ever find them.

Gwen: I thought you couldn't take your car because the battery died?

Adam: Yeah. Yeah, I know I did say that. I didn't want to get into the whole blowup I had with Jade.

Gwen: Why lie about it?

Adam: You know, can we just forget about Jade? You know, it would really be a good idea if you just forgot you ran into me here too, okay?

Gwen: Wait a minute. You don't want me to tell anyone that I saw you tonight?

Adam: Yeah. Yeah, that's what I want.

Gwen: You're not really making any sense. Did you do something?

Adam: Me? Casey's the one who got caught.

Gwen: Casey's the one that got caught? Did your brother have help setting up Will? Is that why you're in such a hurry to get out of here?

Adam: Gwen, I told you why I was leaving.

Gwen: Tell me this. Did you help Casey steal those bonds?

Adam: No. I was with you when it happened.

Gwen: Oh, I remember. I also remember thinking when I found that bond, I was like, wow, he really doesn't seem as freaked out about this as I do. Why is that, Adam? Because you already knew it was going to be there?

Adam: It was the only way.

Gwen: Casey didn't plant that bond, you did.

Adam: Not directly.

Gwen: But you knew about it.

Adam: Look, Casey told me he'd taken Will's money, okay? He was begging for my help.

Gwen: So you set up Will to look like a criminal?

Adam: Casey's my brother. I had to do something.

Gwen: Will is your brother. You knew what was at stake for him, you knew what this could cost him.

Adam: No, he was never happier than when those bonds went missing.

Gwen: That is not true!

Adam: Are you sure about that?

Gwen: Wait a minute. You didn't do this for Casey. You did this for me.

Maddie: I love you, okay? No matter what you've done, I'm will not stop loving you. Because I know you are a good person. I feel it when I look at you, and when you hold me. So, please, trust what we have. Trust me with the truth. Come on.

Casey: Okay. Adam did it.

Will: Adam's not here.

Jade: I told you he's gone.

Will: Well, he's about to get slowed down. Where are you going?

Jade: With you.

Will: No. I told you, this is between me and my brother.

Jade: You wouldn't even know what Adam was trying to pull if I hadn't stepped in. And this is how you thank me?

Luke: Well, the good thing is that the team knows and everybody's cool with it.

Lucinda: Oh, you were afraid that they wouldn't be?

Luke: Oh, hell yeah. I was more afraid of telling the guys on the team than anybody at school. But, as long as I work hard, and act the same way on the court as I always did, they treat me just the same.

Lucinda: I think that says a lot for you and a lot for them. High school is not the most tolerant place.

Luke: Yeah, well, I mean, I still get some looks. But, mostly it's from people that I wouldn't want to be friends with anyways. So I think, yeah, for the most part, I'm pretty much comfortable with everybody. I mean, except some of my teachers. But --

Lucinda: Why? You feel they've been discriminating against you?

Luke: No, well, there's this one teacher, Mrs. Goodwin. She doesn't know, she's trying to be nice --

Lucinda: Well, that answers that question. But what does she do?

Luke: She tried to get me to join the drama club. Because I'm so sensitive and she can tell that I have talent.

Lucinda: Oh, Dear.

Luke: Yeah, yeah. Just because I'm gay, I've got to be artistic, right? It's like, in the bi-laws or something.

Lucinda: Oh, people, Darling, people and assumptions. Oh --

Luke: Yeah, I just wish they wouldn't do it.

Lucinda: So, have you said to Mrs. Whatever-her-name-is, no, you're not going to do this --

Luke: Well, she wanted me to try out for some part in this play, and I told her that I would think about it. But then I didn't show up at the auditions.

Lucinda: Maybe you should have.

Luke: Are you kidding me? I can't act. I hate it when we even have to like, read aloud in lit class.

Lucinda: Oh, you don't have to do that, you can do something else. You can be a stage manager. You can work on sets. You can --

Luke: Why?

Lucinda: Well, that's so you would -- you would have your sports friends, and then you, also on the other hand, you have --

Luke: Oh, now, you're doing it, too.

Lucinda: What?

Luke: You think that, you know, I have a much better chance of meeting a nice boy like me if I get involved with one of the plays. But, for all you know -- for all you know, there could be more gay guys involved in sports than in the drama club, and the show choir combined.

Lucinda: Touchť. You're absolutely right. You're absolutely -- I'm stereotyping -- Honey, I don't want you to do anything you don't want to do. All I want is for you to be happy.

Luke: You know what? I am happy. I mean, yeah, things could be better, but compared to last year, when I was walking around and hiding, just terrified of who I was. Well, compared to that, I'm on top of the world.

Jack: A call came into the station earlier today from Sarah Shaughnessyís sister.

Craig: I hope she was making an apology to Meg.

Jack: No. She's not on board with this suicide angle.

Craig: She'd rather have someone else to blame?

Meg: What exactly did she say?

Jack: First, that her sister was a model patient. She was very well-informed.

Craig: Well, I guess she'd have to be, to make sure she was given drugs that would cause a fatal reaction.

Jack: Maybe. But the sister is convinced that Sarahís diary is a fake.

Meg: Why?

Jack: She said Sarah never kept a journal or anything like that.

Craig: Well, what does that prove? There's plenty of things that my sister doesn't know about me.

Jack: Yeah, the thing is, that she was so adamant about this being a hoax, that it got me thinking about the husband.

Meg: I'm not sure I follow --

Jack: Was there anything he might have said to either one of you at the blood drive that would make you think he planted the diary?

Craig: Absolutely not. The man gave no indication that he was anything but grief-stricken by his wife's death. Isn't that right, Meg?

Meg: Actually, it isnít.

Dusty: This is different.

Emily: What?

Dusty: Finishing a drink with no interruptions. Where nobody knows your name. I'm not talking about you.

Emily: Well, you are just lucky that I was here to pick up the slack when Chaz had to leave.

Dusty: You're right. Because I don't like drinking alone.

Emily: Who does?

Dusty: So, where's your source?

Emily: I don't have a clue.

Dusty: I hope I didn't scare him off.

Emily: No, I don't think you did. I think he probably got tied up somewhere.

Dusty: You ready to call it a night?

Emily: No, no, I'm going to stick around, maybe he'll show up.

Dusty: Want me to wait?

Emily: No, that's okay. Maybe you just have to make yourself scarce if he does show, so --

Dusty: Chaz doesn't think it's the right atmosphere for a single woman.

Emily: Oh, Chaz doesn't think so? I can take care of myself.

Dusty: Obviously, you can. You handled that boardroom like a pro today.

Emily: No, Dusty, I was a floundering idiot until you started asking the right questions.

Dusty: Lucinda was speechless. You did great.

Emily: Well, I don't know if that's a good thing.

Dusty: She's loves you, she's totally invested in you. She wants to see you succeed.

Emily: Well, I hope I can.

Dusty: I know you can. She doesn't back losers.

Emily: Thanks.

Dusty: Well, don't stay out too late.

Emily: Okay, I'll be home by curfew.

Dusty: Goodnight.

Emily: Goodnight.

Meg: When he had that gun pointed at my face, he was furious. He felt his wife was taken away from him, that her deepest fears were being realized. He said nobody listened to Sarah, nobody took her allergies seriously, and he was right.

Jack: So, he's looking for a scapegoat? An eye for an eye kind of thing?

Meg: Definitely.

Jack: Well if that's the case, that doesn't help his position at all, planting the diary. He's trying to get back at the hospital, right? But the diary makes it seem like she took her own life.

Craig: So, what do you make of it?

Jack: Well, maybe there was negligence after all. And this diary is just an attempt by someone at the hospital to cover it up.

Craig: More likely, the sister just can't face what really happened. No one wants to believe the ugly truths about their family.

Jack: All right. Whatever it is, we'll figure it out. But if anything comes to mind, you'll give me a call?

Craig: Of course.

Jack: Okay. I'll be in touch. Thanks.

Meg: He's figuring it out.

Craig: No, he just asked a few questions.

Meg: This is never going to be over. I thought my life was cleaner once I got paul out of my life. But it's still full of lies.

Craig: That's just the fear talking.

Meg: Because I'm afraid. I'm always afraid now. That someone will know who I really am, what I really did.

Craig: Meg, you just made a mistake.

Meg: It's not the first time, okay? And I can't blame Paul for my bad choices. I did this to myself. And I'm still doing it. I'm lying the police! I'm lying to my own family!

Craig: Meg, calm down. It's all right. I'll find a way --

Meg: Don't, okay? Don't ever help me again!

Lucinda: Oh, how your grades, by the way?

Luke: They're good. They're very good, actually. In history, I'm up for this thing.

Lucinda: What thing?

Luke: It's called the Develbus prize. They give it out every year and my essay is one of the finalists.

Lucinda: That's wonderful. Oh, and you can add that -- add that to your college application --

Luke: Yeah, well, I haven't won it yet. And the judge, Mr. Ladeux, I don't think he likes me very much. But, it is the best thing I've ever written, so who knows? Maybe I'll make you proud.

Lucinda: Honey, you make me proud every single day. Okay.

Luke: Let's go.

Casey: Well, Adam figured the only way to get me off the hook was to make someone else look responsible for the robbery.

Maddie: Yeah, well, that someone was your best friend. His own brother.

Casey: Yeah, but at least he knew that Will couldn't be arrested for robbing himself.

Maddie: Arrested or not, Will still looked like a criminal. And people doubted him, including his wife. How could you let this happen?

Casey: I didn't know about it until after the fact.

Maddie: I knew this wasn't you.

Casey: Yeah, but Adam's going to make everything okay with Will. He should be here any minute.

Maddie: Well, you can't wait for him. You have to tell your parents how all this went down.

Casey: No, no, we can't tell my parents, all right? We can't do anything until we hear from Adam.

Maddie: Your mom and your dad deserve to know.

Lisa: Oh, Honey.

Casey: I'm sorry, Grandma.

Lisa: I know you are.

Casey: How can you forgive me? I can't even forgive myself.

Lisa: I love you, Darling. That will never change.

Casey: I love you, too.

Lisa: I know. Look, I don't want you to do any more worrying. Now, I've been giving some thought to this, and I think I know how to fix it.

Gwen: Tell me it's not true. Tell me you didn't set up Will.

Adam: Gwen, he was never really onboard with your career. You had to see that.

Gwen: He got us the money to finish the demo. We got through his entire trust fund. What else was he supposed to do?

Adam: He only did that because he thought he had to, to hold onto you. It's not because he wanted to share you with the world.

Gwen: Oh, come on. I don't need that. I don't need to get my ego stroked. I'm trying to figure out what happened.

Adam: Just know its better this way.

Gwen: For who? You tried to take me away from husband. And I let you.

Adam: Why? Why, Gwen? Maybe because this is what you wanted all along.

Gwen: You cannot honestly believe that. Adam, you didn't think that you and I?

Adam: Come on, you didn't let that fantasy play out in your mind?

Gwen: No, no, I'm married.

Adam: To a husband who isn't good enough for you. The minute you make it big, and you're touring, you're on every award show there is, Will's going to be lost and you know it. Okay? He's never going to feel at home in that world.

Gwen: Oh, and you feel at home?

Adam: Yes. I'm at home with success. Me and you, Gwen. We're equals. There's no limit to what we can do together.

Gwen: No, not anymore. Not after what you've done to Will.

Adam: Look, I took a big risk. But I did that for you. I saw what was coming. And Will, he's only going to hold you back with all of his fears and insecurities.

Gwen: You're delusional.

Adam: Don't you see? I mean, it's only a matter of time before you have to cut him loose.

Gwen: So you decided to do that for me?

Adam: Yes, I'd do anything for you. We can make this work.

Gwen: No.

Adam: Gwen, this is your chance to start over. To have the life you've always wanted. Take it, and leave with me tonight.

Meg: You want to help me? Get away from me! Leave me alone!

Craig: No, no, no. I'm staying right here until you get a grip. You're drawing attention to yourself --

Meg: I don't care.

Craig: You better. There's no need to raise suspicions about your stability, is there?

Meg: No.

Craig: No? Good. Good. Good. All right. Just take a couple of deep breaths. I'll go get us some water. Then we'll discuss how we'll handle Jack and his idle theories, okay?

Emily: What now? I thought I made it clear that I wasn't trying to infringe on your -- whatever.

Cheri: Oh, I believe you. I think I just overreacted before.

Emily: Well, it doesn't matter now, does it?

Cheri: You handled your friends very smoothly. You got rid of all their questions. So, it occurred to me, if you're not -- dating professionally --

Emily: I'm not.

Cheri: Well, maybe you should be. The men here obviously like what they see. You got a great smile, sharp look, sophistication -- put it all together, and that makes for a fabulous package.

Emily: I don't know what to say.

Cheri: Think it over. Call me if you're interested.

[Cheri gives Emily her business card, Emily looks at it for a second and than put it on the bar and walks out]

Lisa: Now, since the bonds were stolen from my safe at Crash, I figured if I just drop the charges, it would all just disappear, right?

Tom: It doesn't work that way, Mom.

Lisa: Well, why not?

Tom: Because it wasn't your property that was stolen.

Margo: Making the vandalism charges go away would help, but even so.

Tom: You cannot fix this for Casey. He is the one that broke the law. He broke a lot of things and he will deal with the consequences from this. [Cell phone rings] It's the judge. Tom Hughes. Yes, your honor. I'll be right there. Looks like we're going to find out if there's a bail hearing after all.

Casey: Oh, Man.

Lisa: Now, Darling, your father wants to help you. But he just doesn't know how. Now, please don't worry yourself about this. Because, well, your family, we will get you through this. We will see to it.

Casey: Thanks, Grandma.

Lisa: Let me know if there's any change or news.

Margo: All right, Sweetie.

Casey: You don't have to stay, Mom.

Margo: Yeah, I do.

Jade: I told you. He's not coming back.

Will: Don't make this your rescue mission, Jade. And don't go deciding that I owe you anything.

Jade: I have my own reasons for wanting Adam to pay for this. He didn't just dump me. He treated me like dirt.

Will: I thought you said this had nothing to do with you?

Jade: The point is, Adam is a user and we both played right into his hands. That's something you and I both have in common, whether you like it or not.

Will: I don't. Don't follow me, okay?

Jade: Wait, wait. Let me try something.

Will: What now?

Jade: I'm going to give the police an update on Adam's role in all this. Even if we can't track him down, I'm sure they can.

Gwen: I trusted you. I opened myself up to you.

Adam: Because we connected.

Gwen: No, because you made me think we wanted the same things. You couldn't be more wrong. I want my marriage to last.

Adam: At the expense of your career?

Gwen: I don't have to choose. I can have both. You made me believe it was possible --

Adam: What? Made you believe what? That I could make the world see you the way I do? I can, Gwen. Stick with me, and I'll prove it. Together we can do anything.

Gwen: No, not anymore.

Adam: Don't walk away from me. Not from what we can be together.

Gwen: I don't want to be anywhere near you. I love Will.

Adam: You're fighting what you really feel.

Gwen: Are you insane? You used Will's money to turn me against him. You made me think that he was deceiving me behind my back when it was you! Who are you? I don't even want to know.

Adam: Don't leave.

Gwen: You couldn't say anything that would make me want to be anywhere near you. Get out! Get off of me! Get away from me!

[Adam falls as Maddie hit him over the head with a piece of wood]

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Jack: You're taking that job.

Brad: You know, this is blackmail.

Meg: So, now I'm with Craig.

Paul: Now you can look me in the eye when you lie to me.

Meg: He's not accusing me of murder.

Paul: Neither am I.

Meg: Kind of sounded like it.

Casey: Did Adam call?

Margo: No.

Casey: I think you really need to find Adam.

Gwen: All right, I think he's dead.
