Alison: Aren't you Jesse?

Jesse: For you? Yeah, I'll be Jesse. Or Harry or whoever you want. And you would be?

Alison: Alison.

Jesse: Hello, Alison.

Alison: Yeah, same old Jesse. Too bad you didn't think I was all that in high school.

Jesse: You went to Latin? No way.

Alison: Yeah, and you wouldn't give me the time of day.

Jesse: Oh, I must have been blind.

Alison: You were busy. You had a pretty hopping candy business going out of your parents' basement.

Jesse: Candy? I don't know what you mean.

Alison: I mean, I wasn't a customer back then, but I might like to be one now -- you think you could hook me up?

Paul: Alison Stewart? Hey, Alison. When did you get back in town?

Margo: Hey, I talked to Danny last night, and he said to tell you that you were right.

Casey: About what?

Margo: Some advice that you gave him about school -- it really helped him out this semester. Something about -- remember that this is boarding school, not boring school?

Casey: Danny's probably the only one who still thinks my jokes are funny. Might want to tell him to get his advice from somewhere else from now on. 'Cause look where he might end up.

Margo: Hey, I didn't bring up your little brother to make you feel bad.

Casey: Everything makes me feel bad, Mom, all right, especially you using the small talk to try and make me feel better.

Margo: All right, all right, okay, okay.

Casey: No, I'm sorry -- that's still what I love about you the most -- you're always trying to cheer me up.

Margo: Don't apologize to me, please. This is really hard for all of us. And I just brought up your little brother so that you know he feels safe and he's okay, and it's just one less thing for you to worry about.

Casey: When I'm in prison.

Margo: Don't jump the gun here. You don't know what -- what the sentencing is gonna be. I mean, you could get probation. You could get community service.

Casey: Or ten years.

Margo: Or ten years. But your father, he submitted a brief on the obstruction of justice charges, and he made it very clear Adam's role in it.

Casey: But without Adam here, it doesn't really do much, does it? It's just hearsay.

Margo: Well, you don't know. The judge could still consider it.

Casey: I wish he'd call me in already. What's taking him so long?

Margo: I'm sure your dad has probably heard something by now. I'll go find out what's going on. You take care.

Casey: Did you see Mom? She's looking for you.

Tom: Yeah, put down the phone, Son.

Casey: No, I want to call Maddie. She's going to be worried sick about me. I want to let her know I'm all right.

Tom: Sorry, Casey. I can't let you do that now.

Maddie: I didn't really know where else to go.

Gwen: That's fine, you're always welcome here. Do you want something to eat? Will and I were about to --

Maddie: No, I can't eat. I can't even think straight.

Will: Hey, what's going on?

Maddie: Casey was told last night that he's being sentenced today.

Gwen: Today?

Maddie: Yeah. He could be going in front of a judge any minute.

Gwen: Well Maddie, why aren't you there?

Maddie: His parents -- they won't let me near him.

Will: Why not?

Maddie: I don't know -- after Margo caught us together, she's convinced that something really bad will happen if I go near him.

Will: Like what? He's arrested.

Maddie: I know. She thinks, I don't know, like I corrupted him or something.

Gwen: I don't understand. I mean, the two of you guys had sex. You're not the first people on the planet to do it.

Will: Maybe they're just really freaked out about Casey and I guess this is their way of trying to keep control of everything.

Maddie: I know. I know that they're scared, but I'm scared, too, and I know Casey has to be the most terrified out of all of us. And I just -- I can't stand it. I can't -- what if they take him away before I even get to say good-bye to him?

Will: Okay, come on, let's go.

Maddie: Where?

Will: The police station.

Maddie: Margo's the chief of police.

Will: Yeah, well, it's a public place. She can't keep you away.

Maddie: She can try.

Will: Well, we'll try harder.

Jade: You ran away to --

Cleo: New York.

Jade: With?

Cleo: With Will.

Jade: Because?

Cleo: Because they were trying to take my baby.

Jade: Whose name was?

Cleo: Billy.

Jade: Mm-hmm. Except somebody came to get you. Who?

Cleo: My sister, Carly. Only we didn't know that we were sisters yet.

Jade: Right, because?

Cleo: Because pupil was messing with our heads. Come on, do we have to do this? I already know all of it.

Jade: No, you don't. Not if you're calling your mother pupil. Her name is Iris.

Cleo: I know. I was making a joke. Didn't it ever occur to you that everything would fall into place if I could just get out there and practice?

Jade: It's not going to fall into place if you don't know your family members' names.

Cleo: That's ridiculous. People mess up their family's names all the time. My mom used to call all of us by the same name. She'd be like, "Ruth, no, Delbert, I mean, Cleo." And then she'd just give up and ask one of us to get her a drink.

Jade: That's not how Gwen is.

Cleo: I am Gwen.

Jade: The real Gwen knows all her family's names.

Cleo: You know, I have to say, you're making this about as fun as studying for an exam.

Jade: Cleo, this is like studying for an exam. Except I'm paying you. So can we please focus on getting you a good grade?

Cleo: Okay. But I want to go outside and get some fresh air first.

Jade: No, Cleo, no.

Cleo: Excuse me, I am not your prisoner.

Jade: Cleo, somebody could see you.

Cleo: And what? Arrest me for breathing free air? That's ridiculous.

[Knock at the door]

Jade: Shh. That's probably the manager saying we're making too much noise. Be quiet. Luke?

Luke: Where have you been?

Jade: How did you know I was here?

Luke: I didn't. I saw your car coming back from basketball practice. And I described you to the manager.

Jade: Just remind me never to use a front lot.

Luke: Look, Jade, I was really worried about you. You didn't show up for dinner last night or you weren't there for breakfast this morning --

Jade: Oh, I decided to take a break.

Luke: From me?

Jade: I didn't say that.

Luke: You didn't need to. Look, I know I slammed you really hard about giving my mom those pills, but I don't know -- I thought maybe we could talk about it? So can I come in?

Jade: No -- we can talk here.

Luke: You really are mad at me, aren't you?

Jade: No, I'm not mad at you.

Luke: Well then why are you staying at this dump?

Jade: Listen, the place is not that bad, okay? And you know me better than that. How often have I ever held a grudge after one of our arguments?

Luke: Off the top of my head? Like three times.

Jade: You are so lame. Just come on, get out of here.

Luke: You really want me to go, don't you, Jade?

Jade: I'm busy.

Luke: Why are you so eager to get rid of me? Wait, you have somebody in there, don't you? I'm right, aren't I? You've got somebody in there.

Jade: Yeah, yeah, you're right. I'm a big slut.

Luke: Hey, I didn't call you that.

Jade: Yeah, but it's what you think. You think some guy picked me up and he took me back here and we're having a hell of a time.

Luke: Okay, Jade, I'm sorry that I came down really hard on you, but I'm really stressed out with what's happening with my mom. You know, I thought you might like to know she checked herself into rehab last night.

Jade: Oh, my God, Luke, I'm really sorry.

Luke: Yeah, well, it's probably the best thing she could do for herself right now. So, where can we go that's like some place to talk that's not a hallway?

Jade: Nowhere.

Luke: Are you sure you're okay?

Jade: Yes, I was fine until you interrupted.

Luke: Because when I came to the door, I thought I heard arguing. If there's some guy giving you a hard time I feel --

Jade: Luke, no, there was no guy. It's the maid.

Luke: The maid?

Jade: Yeah, she's a thief.

Luke: A thief?

Jade: Yeah. You know that silver bracelet that I have? I left it on the night stand, and when she came to clean, it was gone.

Luke: Well, then why did you tell me the story about the one night stand?

Jade: Because I thought it's what you'd believe.

Luke: Oh, my god, we are really, really out of synch. Look, I feel really terrible.

Jade: About what?

Luke: Because I feel like it's my fault that you're sitting here getting robbed in some fleabag motel.

Jade: Luke, Luke, its okay. I just need to deal with this. I just don't want her to leave until I get my bracelet back, okay?

Luke: Then let me help.

Jade: I don't want to open up a federal case. I can handle it.

Luke: Why?

Jade: Luke, there are so many things you just don't understand. Okay, I know what it's like to take something from somebody because you don't have anything nice of your own. All right, let me just handle this my way.

Luke: Okay. I mean, if you say so --

Jade: Yeah. But if you want to talk, I can meet you somewhere.

Luke: Okay, where?

Jade: I can meet you in Old Town in like 20 minutes. Let me just deal with the maid, all right? And Luke, I'm really sorry about your mom.

Luke: Okay. Then see you there.

Cleo: Sorry. Who was that? Was that your boyfriend?

Jade: That was my cousin.

Cleo: Oh. Hey, where are you going?

Jade: I'm going out, all right? Now you study these names.

Cleo: Wait a minute, hold on a second, I'm really hungry.

Jade: There's a soda in the mini-fridge. You can have this.

Cleo: Ew. Hey, I have an idea. Do you think that we could kick this meal up a notch? That's from Emeril. He's my favorite chef.

Jade: Cleo, this'll tide you over until I can get you something when I get back. But don't go anywhere, I mean it.

Cleo: Okay. [In Gwen voice] Don't go anywhere, I mean it. Stupid.

Margo: Simmons told me you came from seeing the clerk?

Tom: That's right. The judge made his decision.

Casey: Hey, it's not like we didn't know it was going to happen.

Margo: I just want you to know, whatever the judge's decision is that we love you and we're family and we're going to see you through this.

Casey: Look, Mom, Dad, I don't want you to be worried about me. I'm gonna be fine in there.

Tom: We ready?

Casey: Yeah.

Maddie: Casey, you're still here. I'm so glad we're not too late.

Casey: Yeah, we're on our way to see the judge now.

Maddie: We want to go with you.

Tom: I wish you'd have respected our request and stayed away from these proceedings.

Will: Wait, don't blame Maddie. This was my idea to come down here.

Margo: I don't think it helps to have --

Casey: It helps me.

Tom: Look, we can't keep the judge waiting.

Casey: Dad, whatever my sentence is, he's already made up his mind. Is two minutes really going to matter?

Tom: Okay, two minutes.

Casey: You guys don't know how much it means that you're here.

Maddie: I want to be here when you hear your sentence.

Will: Yeah, we all do.

Gwen: We know that you got your parents, but we really care about you. Been through a lot together.

Maddie: We want to be here for you.

Will: Look man, it was my idea to come down here. I figured you'd want us to. But if it's too much pressure, then we understand. We just want what's best for you.

Casey: You know what I really want right now?

Will: What?

Casey: Is for you guys to take Maddie to Al's.

Maddie: Casey --

Casey: It's what I want. It's what I want, okay? I'll call you when I find out.

Maddie: Okay.

Tom: Casey, the judge is waiting.

Casey: Maddie, I'm always going to love you. Don't forget that.

Maddie: I love you, too.

Alison: Did you by any chance happen to notice I was in the middle of a conversation?

Paul: Sorry, I didn't mean to chase away your friends.

Alison: They're not friends exactly -- they're just kids I went to high school with.

Paul: Didn't think they were a crowd you wanted to hang out with.

Alison: How do you know what I want?

Paul: You're right, I don't. I'm sorry, none of my business.

Alison: You're right, it isn't.

Paul: Why don't we go back and start over again. Hey, Alison, it's great to see you.

Alison: Yeah, whatever.

Paul: Aaron come back with you?

Alison: Why do you care?

Paul: Well, I'm just wondering. You back for good, or is it just a little visit?

Alison: Like I said, why do you care?

Paul: Well, for one thing, Emily's really missed you. She was very upset when you decided to leave.

Alison: But not as upset as when you left her holding her wedding bouquet.

Paul: If I could go back and undo some of the mistakes I've made with Emily and a whole bunch of other people, believe me, I'd jump at the chance.

Alison: Look, if you ask me? The best thing you could do for Emily is steer clear of her. And you know what, the next time you run into me? You can just leave me alone, too.

Paul: What did you just say?

Alison: I said, leave me alone. Hey? What's up with you? Are you okay? Do I need to call a doctor or something?

Paul: No, no, I'm okay.

Alison: Maybe you should just sit down --

Paul: I'm fine.

Alison: No, you're not. You look like you've seen a ghost.

Paul: Yeah, well, for a second there, I -- you remind me of somebody.

Alison: You've known me most of my life.

Paul: I know, which is why it's really weird. I don't think I can tell you why --

Alison: Don't worry about it. People always think they know me from somewhere. When I was out in Vegas, there was this guy who swore I looked like this movie star that I didn't even know her name. You know what they say about everybody having a double. Well, I'd better get going.

Paul: Yeah, catch up with your friends.

Alison: No, actually, I'm job hunting.

Paul: Hey, well, good luck with that.

Alison: Thanks. Although, I think I'm going to need a little more than luck. If you know anything --

Paul: I thought you wanted me to leave you alone.

Alison: Right. So forget it.

Gwen: What do you want to eat, Maddie?

Maddie: I don't want anything.

Gwen: Come on, you've got to put something in your system.

Maddie: No, I don't. I can't eat and I can't sleep. I just keep thinking the same thing that I've been thinking since the day Casey turned himself in -- that I'm going to lose him.

Gwen: You don't know that.

Maddie: He could get ten years.

Gwen: That's at the absolute worst. He'll probably get less, right? I mean, a lot less.

Maddie: No, I should've -- I shouldn't have let him come back. I should've made him keep going north when he found us in that cabin.

Will: You couldn't have kept him from coming back. He wanted to do the right thing.

Maddie: The right thing would have been to change our names and go to Canada.

Gwen: And then what? You have no work, you have no friends, you have no one to count on if something goes wrong.

Maddie: Doesn't matter. We would have had each other.

Will: And you would've been fugitives. That's a really great life.

Maddie: We would have worked things out. At least we wouldn't be apart ever.

Gwen: Maddie, you can't say that things would've been better if you'd run away. Because it's just not true.

Will: And besides, Casey didn't want that kind of life for you.

Maddie: And this is better?

Will: At least you're safe.

Maddie: And I can't stay here. I need to be with him.

Gwen: Wait, what about Tom and Margo?

Maddie: If I can't see him at the courthouse, then I'll just wait for them at the house.

Gwen: And you really think that's a good idea right now?

Maddie: You two just told me not to worry. So I'm going to think positive and wait at the house and hope that he comes back and he tells me that he just got community service.

Will: Why can't we just wait here and see what happens?

Maddie: You think that he's going to be thrown in jail already, don't you?

Gwen: No, we're not saying that. We're just saying we don't know what's going to happen, and it'd probably be better if you were with friends right now.

Maddie: You know what, maybe it'll be okay. Maybe the judge will see the same thing that I see in Casey. That he's a good person who just made a really bad decision and he's going to get a second chance.

Gwen: And I honestly hope that you're right. But one way or another, you're not going to be alone right now. So either you're going to stay here, or we're going to come with you.

Maddie: No!

Will: No, we're going to wait with you until Tom and Margo at least get home.

Maddie: No, guys, no. You want to come with me because you think that they're going to put him in jail and I'm going to go crazy. Okay, he's going to come home. And when he does, I'm going to wrap my arms around him and tell him how much I love him.

Will: Are you sure you're going to be okay on your own?

Maddie: Yes, I'm sure I'll be fine.

Gwen: Will you do us a favor? If you get really upset, will you at least call us?

Maddie: Yeah. But he is going to come home.

Jade: Hey. Sorry I took so long.

Luke: Oh, that's okay. Did you get your bracelet?

Jade: Huh, what?

Luke: The bracelet that the maid stole.

Jade: Oh, yeah, I put it in the safe.

Luke: The Wagon Wheel has a safe? I guess you learn something new every day.

Jade: Yeah, I just don't want to be away from the room too long. I bet that creepy manager has a passkey.

Luke: Jade, why are you even staying there? You have a home with us.

Jade: Sometimes it's just easier to think about your life when nobody's around.

Luke: Why don't you just admit that you're still mad about what I said?

Jade: Because I'm not mad. I understand why you're worried about Lily.

Luke: But my mom is a grown woman. If she can't control how many pills she was taking, that's not your fault. I mean, they sell those things over the counter.

Jade: I know. I know they do. And I never thought that she was going to get into trouble with them. She's just always been so together, you know what I mean?

Luke: I know, it's just it is so weird for me to see her meltdown like that. But I'm sorry. I shouldn't have taken that out on you.

Jade: Luke, it's okay, we all blow up at friends sometimes.

Luke: Yeah, but Jade, you're more than a friend -- you're my family. And I blasted you so hard that you felt like you had to leave the house.

Jade: It's okay. It's really not a big deal.

Luke: No, it's like I didn't even think about how many times you stood up for me. Like when I was coming out and everything. You totally stood up for me to Kevin when he was treating me so badly.

Jade: Ooh, he really deserved it.

Luke: Well, you know, we're kind of actually friends again.

Jade: Well, he should worship you. You did save him at the lake last summer.

Luke: Yeah, but it was you who made him realize how petty he was. And Jade, I am never going to forget that.

Jade: You've really been thinking about this a lot, haven't you?

Luke: Yeah, I have. I've been driving around looking for you. I mean, I couldn't sleep thinking about what I said to you. You don't deserve that.

Jade: Luke, it's really -- it's okay. It's not worth it, Luke. Really.

Luke: So you gonna come home?

Jade: No.

Luke: Why?

Jade: I'm just not ready yet.

Luke: But you said you weren't mad anymore.

Jade: I'm not. I just need a break. I think it's better if I have some distance between me and you and your family right now.

Luke: Is this -- are you worried that told my dad that you gave my mom the pills? Because I didn't.

Jade: No, it's not that. I just need a break.

Luke: Look, Jade, I never meant to push you away. And you know, what am I going to tell my dad and the girls?

Jade: I don't know. Just tell them that I am staying with a girlfriend. They're not even going to notice I'm gone with everything that's been going on.

Luke: You sure I can't change your mind?

Jade: No, not today. I'm sorry. But I will call you. I'll call you.

Luke: Okay. But you better make it soon.

Jade: Yeah.

Cleo: Hey.

Jade: What are you doing? I told you to stay put!

Cleo: And I told you that I'm ready to go public.

Jade: You are ready to go public when I say you are. Would you stand back?

Cleo: Why? Who is it?

Jade: It's Casey's dorky roommate.

Cleo: His roommate? His name's Elwood, right?

Jade: Yeah, Elwood.

Cleo: He's supposed to have a crush on me, right?

Jade: Yeah, all the more reason for you to get out of here.

Cleo: I think it makes him the perfect guinea pig.

Jade: No way, Cleo. No way!

Cleo: Yes way. I think it's time that we kick it up a notch.

Jade: Forget it. I told you, you're not ready and I mean it. All right, good. He's gone. You can get back to the motel, Cleo [Cleo goes around the corner and puts on her Gwen wig]-- Cleo? Cleo? Cleo, get back here! Cleo?

Cleo: Hey, Elwood.

Elwood: Oh, hey, Gwen. Gwen -- which version of "Middle east in the 21st century" did Dr. Kramer want us to get again?

Cleo: Which version?

Elwood: Yeah, you know, there's the abridged and then there's the unabridged. They're both on the shelf.

Cleo: I don't remember.

Elwood: Okay, what, are you trying to bust my chops? You were the one who asked Kramer which one we should get in the first place. Really, which one is it?

Gwen: I keep thinking about what Maddie said -- what if it were you in that courtroom and some judge was going to decide how long it was going to be before I could see you again?

Will: It was me a few years ago.

Gwen: I honestly have no idea how that must've even felt.

Will: You know when you're so scared that you don't know how to feel? It was kind of like that. I was a lot younger than Casey when it was happening to me, and I was getting torn away from my family. I just kind of shut down. But it wasn't the first time that I'd been through something like that. I mean, I spent time at the psych ward at Memorial.

Gwen: Are you talking about when you were accused of setting that fire?

Will: Yeah.

Gwen: Well honestly, I can't believe that Alison let you take responsibility for that. I mean, you were just a kid.

Will: Well wait, she came clean eventually. And I know that she felt bad.

Gwen: Yeah, she should've. Wow, what a coincidence.

Will: You know, you guys used to be friends.

Gwen: I know. I know, I guess we just lost contact.

Will: Well, look at the good side -- if you guys hadn't have been friends, then she never would have introduced you to me.

Gwen: True.

Will: Hey, Alison.

Alison: Hey. Hey, Will, Gwen. How are the lovebirds?

Will: We're doing great. So how's Oakdale treating you? Are you keeping busy, or are you still bored?

Alison: There're a few things I'm interested in.

Gwen: Do you want to sit down, talk a little bit?

Alison: No, that's okay. You two have already ordered.

Will: Oh, no, no. We're just getting started actually. And the last time we saw you, we didn't get to catch up at all. So, excuse me?

Alison: Will, no! I'm not going to eat with you guys, okay? I gotta go.

Maddie: Please be home.

[Maddie remembering a series of flashbacks]

Maddie: He's Casey? He's your son?

Margo: That's right. I wanted you to get to know Maddie before she moves in.

Casey: Moves in?

Maddie: What happened today -- I don't know, it might not be such a bad thing. At least now we can see each other more.

Casey: I thought you couldn't stand me.

Maddie: Only occasionally. If you went away, I would've missed you.

Casey: Your hand is cold.

Maddie: Yeah, well, I guess it's freezing --

Casey: You know what you are?

Maddie: Oh, let me think --oh, the winner.

Casey: No, you are a sneak. Actually, you're worse than that. You were like real sneaky. You put on this whole front where you act like you're all cute and innocent, and it's just a disguise for a mean, mean person.

Maddie: Okay, it is not my fault that you're just really bad at this game.

Casey: Oh, that's really nice. Really nice.

Maddie: It just doesn't seem fair.

Casey: It's not. Not to you. But I brought this on myself.

Maddie: Do you know when?

Casey: No, my dad just said he was going to talk to someone about the calendar.

Maddie: So we don't know how much time we have?

Casey: We have right now.

Margo: Maddie?

Maddie: Oh, Mr. and Mrs. Hughes, hi. I'm sorry. I know that you really don't want me hanging around here, but I couldn't stop worrying about Casey. He's --

Casey: Maddie.

Maddie: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I prayed so hard. And then when I saw your parents coming and you weren't with them, I was scared they'd taken you away and I'd never see you again. Are you okay?

Tom: We'll be inside if you need anything.

Casey: Thanks.

Maddie: What happened? What did the judge say?

Casey: Well, it wasn't as bad as I thought.

Maddie: I knew it. I knew that he wasn't going to be tough on you. Especially because it's your first offense. So, okay, do you have community service?

Casey: Not exactly.

Maddie: What does that mean?

Casey: I didn't get community service at all.

Margo: It's always some other mother, isn't it, you know? At the police station, or at the courthouse who's crying 'cause their kid's done something rotten and they're going to prison. And they swear they never saw it coming. And I always said, "God, I'm glad that'll never be happening to me."

Tom: You can't blame yourself for this, Honey.

Margo: Well, Barbara was right, wasn't she, when she said I act so superior when it comes to my boys. My precious sons. Well, look what's happened now. Look how many people they've hurt. Look how they've hurt themselves, how they hurt each other. I mean, Adam -- he's lost to us. And Casey --

Tom: Six months --

Margo: Six months --

Tom: We thought it was going to be a lot worse than that, remember?

Margo: He's going to prison, Tom. Our little boy is going to prison.

Will: Its okay, Ali. No pressure. You don't have to eat with us.

Alison: That was kind of over the top, huh?

Will: Are you okay?

Alison: Yeah, I was just job hunting.

Will: Well, that's always stressful.

Alison: Yeah, and I'm supposed to go meet my mom and tell her the good news, except I don't have any. So I was going to grab a coffee with about ten sugars and hope it gets me through another lecture about why I should've gone to college. But next time, okay?

Will: Yeah, next time.

Gwen: She hates me.

Will: She doesn't hate you. She's probably just uncomfortable seeing the two of us together.

Gwen: Why? You said it, I mean, she's the one who introduced us.

Will: Yeah, but we're happy.

Gwen: So?

Will: So she probably wishes she had as much luck with her love life as we did with ours.

Gwen: You really think that's it, huh?

Will: You know, I don't want to think about her.

Gwen: I don't really want to think about her either. I'm worried about Maddie, though. I think we should go check on her.

Will: She made it pretty clear she didn't want us to.

Gwen: Well, I can't just sit here. I gotta go do something.

Will: Well, I have some activities in mind that we could do this afternoon.

Gwen: While we're in the neighborhood, do you mind if we stop at a bookstore? I have to get a book for my world politics class.

Will: That wasn't exactly what I was thinking. But that's okay, that's fine. We can do that, too.

Paul: Alison, I'm so glad I caught up with you.

Alison: What are you, stalking me?

Paul: No. I need you to say something for me.

Alison: Get lost, Paul, or I'm going to really start to think you're a freak.

Paul: I know that it's a little weird. But it'll only take a second and then I promise I will leave you alone. If you could just say something for me.

Alison: Like what?

Paul: Five little words. "I know what you did."

Alison: Fine. I know what you did.

Elwood: Well? I mean, if I got the wrong book, I can just go back and exchange it now 'cause I'm here.

Cleo: Um, let me see. Yeah, that's it. That's it. That's the one.

Elwood: Great. Not. 'Cause the abridged version is like 100 pages shorter.

Cleo: Well, you love to read, don't you, Elwood?

Elwood: Yes. I also like to be read to. Any time you feel like ditching that will fella and whispering the Middle East histories into my ear, then you're more than welcome.

Cleo: You know, Elwood, that's going to be very hard to refuse, but I think I'm going to have to stick with my husband on this one.

Elwood: Fine, have it your way. If you change your mind, you know where to find me.

Cleo: Did you see it? I mean, I totally nailed it. He totally thought that I was Gwen! He even hit on me!

Jade: You're pretty proud of yourself, aren't you?

Cleo: Yeah, pretty much. But I can't take all the credit. I mean, you did teach me everything that I know.

Jade: You know, I'm glad that loser didn't catch on, but the next time you pull a stunt like that, you're on the next bus back home.

Cleo: Are you threatening me?

Jade: Facts, Cleo. I'm giving you the facts.

Cleo: Well, here's a fact that you can hold on to, all your bullying? It's not working for me.

Alison: I know what you did.

Paul: Rosanna.

Alison: Hey, Jesse.

Rob: Yo, it's the hottie again.

Alison: We got interrupted before you could tell me if you could help me out with a little purchase I want to make.

Jesse: I'm sorry, but I don't know you.

Alison: Remember, I told you that we went to high school --

Jesse: Yeah, I know you told me we went to high school together, but I don't remember you. And I only do business with friends. Close friends.

Alison: Why would I lie to you? [Men laughing] You think I'm a cop?

Jesse: The whole we went to high school together thing is pretty typical 5-O.

Alison: Look, I'm not a cop, really. I could just really need to score some ice.

Jesse: I don't know what that is.

Alison: Crystal meth. Do I have to spell it out for you?

Jesse: Save your breath.

Alison: Why? Don't you have any? Do you know somebody who could help me?

Jesse: Maybe. How much green you got?

Alison: None. I mean, I have some, it's just not on me right now. But if you could just spot me, I could go and get it from an ATM --

Jesse: First, she wants what I don't have, then she thinks I'm a bank? Get real.

Alison: Please. I'm good for the money. Really. My mom's a doctor in town. I could easily --

Jesse: Forget it. Forget it. No cash, no candy. No excuses.

Margo: You remember when Casey was a little boy and he was taken from us?

Tom: Please, honey, don't torture yourself.

Margo: Well, I can't help it, because it's coming up. Do you remember when he was kidnapped?

Tom: It was the worst day of my life. I just turned around and he was gone, in an instant.

Margo: And do you remember in that instant, when you realized that he's not hiding, he's not lost, he really is gone? Do you remember how everything went into slow motion? And you said to yourself, "how could I have let that happen?"

Tom: I don't think we should be doing this. It's no more your fault now than it was then. Casey got himself into this situation.

Margo: But you remember that helplessness? Do you remember how you replayed every moment leading up to that, and you just prayed that you could go back and you could do it again, and you could do something different. Or, god, if you could just do anything different. But you can't. Because there's this weight on you, and you can't move. That's how I feel.

Tom: Me, too.

Margo: Baby, we should have done something different.

Tom: What? Live Casey's life for him? We did the best we could to protect him and to love him.

Margo: We can't protect him anymore.

Tom: No. We can't.

Margo: He's just going to go into that place and he's going to be all alone and there is nothing that you and I can do.

Maddie: Six whole months? How long do you have before you have to go? I mean, please tell me it's a few weeks.

Casey: I'm sorry I can't make this better for you.

Maddie: How long?

Casey: A few days.

Maddie: No.

[ Maddie sobbing ]

Jade: This is my project, Cleo, and I'm the one who calls the shots.

Cleo: But I'm the one who's playing Gwen. I'm the one who needs the practice.

Jade: Did it ever occur to you that while you were practicing on Elwood that somebody who knows Gwen a hell of a lot better could have walked right up, and you would've been lost in never never land?

Cleo: But nobody did. Why can't you just give me credit for doing a really good job?

Jade: Cleo, because you could've just as easily blown up the whole thing. It just -- you got lucky, okay? That's it. Dumb luck.

Elwood: Gwen, that's the abridged version.

Gwen: Yeah.

Elwood: Well, I just got the unabridged.

Gwen: Well, why did you do that? Weren't you listening in class when I asked the teacher which one we should buy?

Elwood: Yeah. But you just told me to get the unabridged version.

Gwen: When did I tell you to do that?

Elwood: Like, just now. Did you change clothes?

Will: Are you stoned, man?

Elwood: No, will, I'm not stoned. Are you two trying to pull the wool over my eyes?

Gwen: Why would we do that?

Elwood: Because everyone loves to play tricks on Elwood. Look, I know what I saw, and you were wearing something else.
