Brad: Henry!

Henry: Bradley!

Brad: I'm buying.

Henry: Oh --

Brad: How about a hand or two of cards? I am feeling lucky tonight.

Henry: Hey! Have cards, we'll travel. And I never turn down a free drink. Unless I have other plans.

Vienna: You're mine and don't forget it.

Brad: Ouch. That's got to hurt.

Vienna: I would never hurt my henry.

Brad: Yeah, but that leash you've got him on has got to pinch a bit.

Henry: Oh, brad, let me tell you something. When a woman makes you as happy as vienna makes me, you don't need a leash. Because you don't want to stray.

Brad: Henry, you are a domesticated animal.

Henry: Brad, you are a lonely guy.

Brad: Me?

Henry: Yeah.

Brad: Me? I could have any woman I want.

Vienna: Except me. And katie.

Jack: He's done this before, we just wanted to put the word out. So if you hear from him or you see him, can you give me a call, please?

Carly: Or me.

Jack: Or carly. We're at the farm. Thank you.

Katie: If he comes to the diner, please call me immediately. Thank you.

Jack: Any sign of him?

Katie: Not yet.

J.J.: He's gone. I told you.

Carly: He's somewhere. We're going to find him.

J.J.: Was he at al's? No. Was he with lily and holden? No. Was he with paul? No.

Jack: Somebody has to have seen him.

Carly: Faith! Thank god. Have you seen parker?

Faith: No, I haven'T. I was at dance class. And I came as soon as I got your message.

Carly: Have you heard from him?

Faith: I haven't really talked to him since -- the accident.

J.J.: I told them it was me. That I put the gun out there.

Carly: You knew about this?

Faith: Yeah, J.J. Told me. But I promised him I wouldn't tell anybody.

J.J.: Well, she was the one who told me to tell you guys -- don't be mad at her.

Carly: No, of course not. Honey, you're the one who got hurt. How are you feeling?

Faith: I'm fine. So what happened? Parker left?

Jack: Yeah. He was upset about the situation and he took off.

Carly: Would you call him? Please, from your phone. I've been trying, but he won't pick up. But maybe if he sees the call was from you --

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. We left him messages. I don't want to trick him, that'll just make things worse.

Carly: We have no idea where he is.

Jack: Faith, do you have any idea where he is?

Faith: Maybe.

Guard: Museum's closed, kid.

Parker: Oh. I'm sorry.

Guard: You here by all by yourself? Where're your parents?

Parker: My parents? They're -- they're over there, waiting for me. I just wanted to get a poster.

Guard: The museum opens up at 10 A.M. Come back then.

Parker: 10 A.M.? Great. Thank you. Museum opens at 10:00 A.M.

Parker: Where am I supposed to spend the night on $7.00?

Minister: We have come together in the presence of god and all these witnesses to bless the joining together of this man and this woman in holy matrimony. Marriage is a sacred covenant. Marriage is not to be entered into lightly or unadvisedly but deliberately and reverently, in accordance with the purposes for which it was instituted by god.

Lucinda: What do you think you're doing! You'll spoil everything!

Minister: Do you have the rings?

Craig: Yes, my sister's very reliable in that department but first there is something I want to say. I know a lot of people think that this wedding is problematic. At least, not traditional, but i want you to know that for me, this is the real deal meg. I love you. And I promise you, before our friends, before our family, before god, I will do everything I can to make all of your dreams come true.

Faith: One time parker and I were talking about running away, a long time ago and paul had shown us a picture in one of his art books of a gypsy and a lion?

Carly: Oh, I think I know that painting. The gypsy has a striped robe?

Faith: Yeah, and the lion's standing right over him, but you know he's not going to hurt him. And it's so peaceful and we liked the painting so much and parker especially. Paul told us it was hanging in the art institute in chicago for a special exhibit. And maybe he's there, I know it's not a lot to go on --

Carly: It is, honey, it's a good start.

Jack: Okay, listen I'm going to call a buddy of mine at the chicago P.D. -- See if I can get some unofficial help.

J.J.: You think that parker would go all the way to chicago to see a stupid painting?

Faith: I know it sounds stupid but, there was just something about it, that was so cool. I mean you look at it and you just feel safe. I can show it to you if you want. It's probably online.

Carly: Yeah, okay why don't you kids check it out. All right, go ahead and we'll call you if we need you. I need to ask you a favor.

Katie: What do you need?

Carly: I don't want to ask you but -- I really, I really want to go to chicago to look for parker, I'd like for you to stay here with the other kids if you can. And we'll be home soon or I can call brad --

Katie: No, no, don't do that. I'll do it.

Carly: You will?

Katie: Yeah.

Carly:Because I can't leave them alone. Especially sage, you know I know they trust you. I know they'll feel safe here with you.

Katie: It's not a problem.

Jack: They're sending a squad car over to the museum, but I really think --

Carly: Yeah, we have to go to chicago. Because if he see's them, then he'll be gone and we won't ever find him.

Katie: I'm going to stay here with the other kids.

Jack: What about your brother's wedding?

Katie: I'll catch the next one. Really I'll stay here and call me if you hear anything, I'll call you if I hear anything.

Carly: J.J.!

Jack: You're unbelievable, you know that. You're amazing.

Katie: He's your son. He needs you.

Jack: I'll call.

Katie: Okay.

Jack: Carly --

Katie: All right, who's starving? Me.

J.J.: I could eat.

Faith: Maybe a salad?

J.J.: We're talking about real food, not rabbit food.

Katie: Well, I actually happen to be an expert on rabbit food, so -- salad's no problem. J.J. For you something else coming right up. Why don't you guys go watch a movie or something, and I'll get dinner started.

Brad: I don't need a woman to make me happy, okay, and if I did, it certainly wouldn't be katie.

Henry: Oh lord -- yes, yes, he's got it bad.

Vienna: I just don't get it.

Henry: What honey?

Vienna: Why so many men fall for katie. It doesn't seem to last, which is a shame. She really deserves to be loved.

Brad: But not by me.

Henry: That's right. That's right, brad. Save yourself. I know you're going to find the right girl one of these years.

Brad: I'm not looking, okay, so you can keep your free advice. The only reason why I offered to buy you a drink and win a little money off you is because, I used to like you.

Henry: You still like me, brad. You just don't like that I'm right.

Brad: You know for your information, okay, there are more important things in trying to find miss right, I've got my career to think about.

Henry: Now that, my darling, is what happens when a men fall for katie peretti.

Vienna: He's right.

Henry: About what?

Vienna: He has a career.

Henry: No, katie has a career. He's just along for the ride.

Vienna: Well still, he has something to do when he gets up the morning.

Henry: Am I boring you, darling?

Vienna: No, never. I just thought it might be nice to do something.

Henry: Well we do things. We wake up, you kiss me. I kiss you. We see where that leads. And then we take a shower and see where that leads. And then you take out the lingerie and I pick something for the day. And then we go have breakfast, unless we're too busy taking off lingerie. And then we go out and shop and go to lunch, we go to movies, we do lots of things, what are you talking about?

Vienna: But wouldn't it be great to be something?

Henry: What do you mean? Besides happy?

Vienna: No, have you ever had a career?

Henry: Yes, yes, I've -- well I had a brief stint in television production. I was a private eye for a little while. A card shark. There's also the limo --

Vienna: Uniforms! We have to find something to do with uniforms. Because you know what, I love it when you wear that little hat when your driving.

Henry: Okay honey, I'll buy you a hat.

Vienna: No, it's not just a hate henry. I want to have something I've never had before. And one thing I've never had is a job. You know, don't you think that would be amusing.

Henry: Can I have two martinis please. Make mine a double. Yeah --

Paul: She can't marry that guy.

Lucinda: That is not your decision to make, if you go into the church right now you will put meg in grave danger.

Paul: Lucinda, if she marries craig, that's the danger.

Lucinda: You will spoil things if craig knows the two of you are still together. The plan is that you whisk her away after the ceremony, after she turns worldwide over to me.

Paul: It's too dangerous. It's too much of a risk.

Lucinda: If you go into the church right now, craig will go ballistic. Just think about rosanna? Think what he did -- do you want that to happen to meg?

Paul: Lucinda I had a vision and if meg puts that ring on her finger, something terrible is going to happen.

Lucinda: Yes, to craig. He's going to be out of everything. Out of a wife, out of a company, out of -- come on. That is the plan and we're going to stick to it and you go back to -- back to the lakeview.

Paul: I can't, I can't, I can't leave her alone.

Lucinda: She's not alone, she's safe. We're all with her. We're there with her. And darling as for your vision, I'm sorry, I'm really sorry, but they don't always work out the way you think they are. We don't know what the hell this one means. You go back. Go back to the hotel. And wait for us.

Minister: Do you, meg, take this man to be your lawful husband? Will you love him, honor him, keep him in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, for as long as you both shall live?

Craig: Meg?

Meg: I will.

[ Lucinda sighs ]

Minister: Place the ring on her finger. Bless the giving of these rings that they who wear them may live in peace, and continue in favor all the days of their life. Inasmuch as meg and craig have given themselves to each other by solemn vows, with the joining of hands, and the giving of rings, I now pronounce them husband and wife. Those whom god has join together, let no man put asunder. You may kiss the bride.

Brad: Hey, what are you doing here? There's eggs on the floor.

Katie: Yeah, I know. Here, make yourself useful.

Brad: That's a good look for you.

Katie: Thanks.

Brad: We should -- we should feature it on the show. I'll speak to wardrobe.

Katie: Not tonight, brad, please.

Brad: So what's going on? Where is everybody? And what're you doing here?

Katie: Meg is getting married. Emma's at the wedding. Parker ran away. Jack and carly are looking for him. And I'm making dinner.

Brad: Oh, well, no wonder you're in such a bad mood, jack and carly off on their own. I mean, you know what that means.

Katie: Yeah, they're looking for their son.

Brad: Yeah, whatever you say. I mean, you know how kids get when they want their parents to get back together. They're always coming in with one crisis after another.

Katie: Just so you are up to speed -- faith was shot with B.B. Gun. Parker got blamed for it, it wasn't his fault, it was an accident. But he took off before all of the facts came out. Faith seems to think he's in chicago, so jack and carly went looking for him there. Any more questions?

Brad: Is faith okay?

Katie: She'll be fine. It's just a flesh wound.

Brad: So you're here holding down the fort while jack and carly are --

Katie: Look for parker.

Brad: Hey, parker, it's your uncle brad. Hey, give me a call, okay? Yeah, you know, I'll come and get you, man -- bail you out, no questions asked, whatever. Just call me. And be safe. And no talking to beautiful blondes. He's going to be okay. He's a smart kid.

Katie: I know, but he's still a kid. He's scared and he's upset.

Brad: He grew up on a farm, his dad's a cop. He knows how to look after himself. But maybe that's not what's really got you worried.

Katie: Why do you always ruin it when you're ahead?

Brad: I was ahead?

Katie: Yeah, well, now you're not.

Brad: Well, why? Because I was wondering if you're worried about jack and carly spending the night?

Katie: He's not spending the night with her.

Brad: Well, do you think they're going to be home before morning? Because I sure don'T. I mean, not with carly all teary and needing comfort. I mean, you never know what can happen.

Katie: I'll tell you what's going to happen. If you don't shut up, I'm going to throw you out.

Brad: You and what army?

Katie: Brad, don't tempt me. I have got three scared kids waiting for dinner. Okay? I can't find the can opener, there is no microwave, and I can't figure out how to light this old stove. So if you're not going to pitch in and help me make a meal for these kids, get out!

Carly: The storm's coming.

Jack: Just a summer shower.

Carly: We don't even know if he has a jacket.

Jack: So he'll get wet. He'll be fine.

Carly: You don't know that.

Jack: Carly, he's grown up a lot since you left. He finds his way to school most mornings by himself.

Carly: When he goes.

Jack: And when he doesn't, he's apt to be anywhere from the lake to al'S.

Carly: He goes to the lake by himself?

Jack: Paul used to live near there for a while. And he and faith used to hike through the woods to his cabin.

Carly: Well, chicago's not the woods. He's scared. He's upset and he's alone.

Chicago cop: No one inside. I checked the grounds. I'll cruise the streets once again. I'll let you know if I spot him.

[ Thunder ]

Margo: Wait, wait, wait -- could you wait? Congratulations, both of you.

Meg: Thank you.

Craig: Thank you again for standing up for me. I noticed that katie didn't make it, though.

Margo: Well, craig, it was so last minute.

Craig: That's all right, it doesn't matter. We all got what we wanted, didn't we, meg?

Meg: Yes.

Lily: You look beautiful, meg.

Meg: Thank you.

Lucinda: You look so happy, craig.

Craig: Well, I am happy. I've married the woman I love.

Lucinda: Yeah. I just can't wait for my sit-down with the new mrs. Craig montgomery.

Craig: Well, the new mrs. Craig montgomery knows why you want to have a sit-down, and so do I. And I think it's all in due time. But right now, I think, is a time for champagne and for toasts. So why doesn't everybody just go over for a little reception at the lakeview, okay?

Meg: Mama --

Emma: Sweetheart --

Meg: Thank you for being here.

Emma: What's the matter?

Craig: Hey, what's the matter, what's wrong?

Meg: Nothing. I just remembered, I forgot my watch in the dressing room.

Craig: Oh, fine, I'll just have somebody go get it for you.

Meg: No, no, no, no, I'll do it.

Craig: But the car's waiting, babe.

Board member: What's this I hear about you stepping down, craig?

Craig: Well, no, I wouldn't say that it's stepping down. It's just --

Emma: Are you okay?

Meg: Yeah --

Emma: All right, all right.

Meg: Are you crazy?

Paul: Let me see this ring.

Meg: No, not here, not here! Let's go inside -- let's go inside. Craig could find you here!

Paul: Have you looked at that ring?

Meg: I tried not to.

Paul: This is the ring that i had made for you.

Meg: That's not possible.

Paul: Yes, it is. I brought it back to the jeweler, and the jeweler sold it to craig, and you remember why i returned it in the first place.

Meg: Yeah, you had a vision.

Paul: Yes, and this -- this is the ring from the vision. Meg, something terrible is going to happen.

Meg: Yeah, if craig finds you here, he's going to kill the both of us. You need to go.

Paul: Come with me.

Meg: But the company --

Paul: Forget the company. Forget about craig. We'll be long gone before he even knows what hit him. I've got a plane waiting. Come with me. Where does it hurt ? New aleve liquid gels can make it better. I have copd with chronic bronchitis which makes

Paul: Let's go now, while we have the chance. Come on.

Meg: No, no, I can'T. I've put too much into this, and there's just one more hour left. Look, you go back to the lakeview and I'll go to the reception and have the papers signed over to lucinda --

Paul: As soon as you have the papers signed over to lucinda, craig will be on to you.

Meg: As long as he thinks he still has me.

Paul: You don't think he's going to be suspicious?

Meg: What can he do? The room is full of people. I'll tell him that I have to go change, and then that's when I'll slip away and meet you.

Paul: What if he has you followed?

Meg: Well, then he'll know that we're here and we're both in trouble. Look, you've got to go, okay? If we change plans now, something could go wrong.

Paul: Something's already gone wrong.

Please, please, come with me.

Meg: I can'T. I promised lucinda. Look, as soon as I get the company signed over to her, I will come to you. We will be together. I promise.

But you have to go. If craig finds out that we tricked him, then we're finished. And I couldn't bear that.

Henry: You're serious, then? Thank you. You're serious? You want a job?

Vienna: Yes, yes, of course, I'm serious.

Henry: Why?

Vienna: Well, because I look at it as a new adventure, a new experience.ŅI you don't have anything against that, do you?

Henry: No, honey, you know me, I love new experiences. But look, you're the kindest, gentlest, most generous woman I have ever met. And you make everyone you meet feel better, so isn't that enough?

Vienna: You know, it's my hands -- my hands. I'm really good with my hands.

Henry: Yes, yes, yes, I know that. But I'm not going to share the wealth. And besides, I think that's illegal.

Vienna: No, no, no, no, no. I mean massage. You know, everybody keeps telling me that, that I'm very talented.

Henry: I -- I don't need to know the names. Ah, don't stop, vienna!

Vienna: I could wear, like, a white jacket, and white pants, and -- oh, a turban, a turban. That's kind of like a hat, isn't it?

Henry: Honey, no one is going to be paying attention to what you're wearing. Their eyes are going to be closed in ecstasy.

Brad: Al right, all right. You need help -- you need help, I'll help you. Can you holster that thing, please? Please? Thank you. All right, so what are we having, crazy woman? What are we having, eggs a la floor?

Katie: You're hilarious.

Brad: All right, no, seriously. What is all of this?

Katie: Well, I was going to make pancakes. I realized there wasn't any mix, so I thought, "I'll do it from scratch!" There's a cookbook, there's eggs, there's flour, there's milk. And then, I was reaching for the flour when the eggs were rolling on the floor, and hence the mess.

Brad: That's why I have my pancakes at al's -- which I think is a really good idea. We could take the kids to al'S.

Katie: I told jack I wouldn't leave the house. I promised.

Brad: Well, what did he promise you? Well, don't get touchy. I'm just, you know, looking for an update. You know, obviously, you two have an understanding. He gets to go out and spend the night with his ex, and, well, you get to babysit.

J.J.: Is dinner ready?

Brad: We're almost there. You just -- you -- give us a sec. Go outside on the porch and watch the heat lightning. The sky's all lit up. It's amazing.

Katie: So, what are we going to make in just a sec? Because faith wants a salad, yet there's not one vegetable in the refrigerator.

Brad: Because all the vegetables are in the garden, genius.

[ In french accent ] At the snyder's, we like to eat fresh! But not tonight, no! So start spreading.

J.J.: I messed everything up.

Faith: No, you didn'T. Parker, he was mad way before the B.B. Gun thing. Yeah, but I made it worse.

Faith: J.J., Everybody makes things worse sometimes. In our family, we just take turns.

J.J.: You don't understand. I haven't been with my family that long. And my mom died, and jack thought he could just take me. And if I start to be problem, he's not going to want me anymore.

Faith: That's not true. Jack, he loves you. He would never let anything happen to you. And carly, I know she left, but she's back. And she loves you, too. Nothing's ever going to change that.

J.J.: But what if parker gets hurt? What if we never see him again?

Faith: Okay, I know parker can do stupid things sometimes, but he's really smart. Nothing's going to happen to him.

[ Car approaching ]

Jack: Parker, wait!

Carly: Parker!

Jack: Parker, stop, stop. Stop!

Carly: Oh, thank god. Parker, stop it!

Jack: Stop. Parker --

Jack: Would you stop it? Just stop! We want to take you home.

Parker: Why? So you can send me away?

Jack: No, we're not sending you away.

Carly: Parker, we know what happened. J.J. Told us that you put the gun away like you were supposed to.

Jack: I was wrong. You were telling me the truth, and I didn't believe you -- I didn't believe your mother. It was my fault. I should've listened to you.

Parker: Yeah, I put it away!

Jack: I should have let you explain. Yeah, I know you did. And your brother took it out -- why, it doesn't really matter, okay? But the point is, when we found out the truth, we wanted to come and make things straight with you. That's when we found your note.

Parker: And you're really not sending me away?

Carly: We're really not sending you away.

Parker: Ever? Or just until the next time that I make a mistake

Jack: I am not going to send you away! I'm not going to send you away. I'm not going to threaten to send you away, okay? That was a stupid idea. It was my stupid idea. It's just that I couldn't -- I couldn't help you. And you're so filled with anger, I didn't know what to do, okay? But we will figure this out. I promise, we'll do it together. We'll make this right.

Parker: So J.J., He took out the gun?

Jack: Yes. And he's really sorry.

Parker: He has been mad at me for a while.

Jack: Yeah, well, we all make mistakes, parker.

Parker: So he makes a mistake and I get sent away?

Jack: Yell at me, yell at me. Go ahead. You want to hit me? Take your best shot! I screwed up, and I'm sorry. I let you down. Listen, we've all been through a couple of crappy months. And we've all made mistakes. But I can tell you for sure that running away, that's not the thing to do. You've just got to get through this the best you can. And I know it feels like the pain is never going to end. But let me tell you something -- running away? It's just going to make things worse. Because you're going to be all alone, instead of being at home, and slugging it out with your family that loves you. And I know it doesn't feel like that right now. But I love you. Don't leave me, parker. 'Cause I don't think I could take it.

[ In french accent ]

Brad: Viola! Dinner is served. We even have peanut butter and banana for the health nuts on the team.

Katie: Yeah, sorry, faith, we don't have any salad. I just didn't want anyone picking vegetables outside while it's lightning.

Faith: It's fine, I'm not really hungry.

Sage: Did mommy and daddy find parker?

Katie: Well -- they haven't called yet, but don't worry about him, he's a big boy, he's going to be fine.

Sage: He's in trouble.

J.J.: Is not.

Sage: Is too.

J.J.: Is not!

Brad: Sage, you dissecting my work over there?

Sage: This banana is brown.

Katie: That just means it's sweeter.

J.J.: I hate brown bananas.

Brad: Katie must've made that one. You know, don't tell anybody, but she's not much of a cook.

Katie: Excuse me?

Brad: Yeah, just the other day, she tried to make pie out of my face.

J.J.: Your face?

Brad: Oh yeah, yeah. Yeah, she pushed my face right into a pie shell. It was like brad meringue.

Katie: Well, believe me, he deserved it.

Brad: She thinks she's so smart. But one of these days, watch out.

Katie: Oh, I'm watching, brad. And I'm not seeing anything.

Sage: One time, J.J. Put shaving cream all over my head.

J.J.: That doesn't count, you were in the bathtub.

Sage: Daddy was so mad.

J.J.: Was not.

Sage: Was too.

J.J.: Was not!

Faith: Watch out!

Katie: Oh, oh! Yes, girl power! Thank you very much.

Brad: Traitor! Traitor! You shall perish!

Katie: Face it, brad. You're never going to get one over on me.

Faith: Yeah, give it up.

Sage: Girl power!

Faith: Yeah!

Vienna: You see? I'm wonderful.

Henry: Oh, there's no question about that.

Vienna: No, what I mean is, people would pay me to do this. And oakdale doesn't really have a decent spa. We should open one. I'd do the massage and beauty treatments. I always used to give my girlfriends facials and makeovers. And you could do all the bookings, and hand out towels, and get the money!

Henry: Yeah, and fend off all the men who will be pushing you up against a wall because you've had your hands all over their bodies.

Vienna: They will get a massage, and that's it. The rest is for you.

Henry: All right. Okay, okay, so where do we do this, this spa?

Vienna: We'll start small. We'll get a room here at the hotel. We buy uniforms. And we'll print up a list over the different services we're going to have. Et voila! We're in business.

Henry: All right. But first, I think it's only business-like that I sample your services. So I know what we're selling. Let's start with the full-body massage, shall we?

Craig: Meg!

Meg: Hide, hide. I'm coming! Go, go back to the lakeview as soon as we pull out, and then I'll meet you in your room.

Paul: I'm not going to leave you.

Meg: You have to. Please go. Please!

Paul: I have a really bad feeling about this.

Meg: Okay, you know, I'm going to be real careful, okay? Just go, before it's too late! All right? I'll be there as soon as I can.

Meg: Craig, you startled me.

Craig: What took you so long? I was starting to get worried.

Meg: You know, it's really hard to maneuver in this dress.

Craig: Did you find what you had lost?

Meg: Yeah. I'm all set. Thanks. Let's go to the reception.

Craig: I think you're forgetting something.

Meg: Oh, you know, I was afraid I was going to forget it in the dressing room, and I left it here. Thank you. There's going to be a lot of single girls who'll want to catch it.

Meg: Where is everyone?

Craig: Well, you were taking so long, I just sent everyone ahead to the lakeview.

Meg: Oh, okay. I guess I'll throw the bouquet there.

Craig: I don't think that's going to happen.

Meg: Why not?

Craig: We're not going to the reception.

Meg: Well, everyone's expecting us. My mother, lucinda --

Craig: Shhh, I'm sorry. There's been a change of plans.

(Announcer)

get ready for something cool.

Jack: So what do you say? Can we go home?

Carly: Do you want a burger or something for the ride home?

Parker: Yeah, a cheeseburger.

Carly: Whatever you want.

Parker: And I really don't want to go back to the farm. There's always too many people there, and J.J. Will be there. And I really don't want to see him, not now.

Carly: Okay, I understand. Maybe if it's okay with your dad, you could come back to the house with me. And I won't say anything. I won't talk. We don't have to talk at all, unless you want to.

Parker: I'll never want to talk.

Carly: All right, that's fine. I know, for me, I just want a nice hot bath and watch a little tv. And then I'm going right to sleep. And maybe in the morning, we can talk about things after everyone's had some rest.

Jack: Sounds good to me. What about you?

Parker: Whatever.

Carly: Thank you.

Jack: It wasn't just me. It was both of us.

Brad: All right, that's his nose.

Sage: That's not a nose, it's too big!

Brad: It is if you're a duck-billed platypus. They're, like, a mile long. Have you seen their noses?

Sage: Nobody's nose is a mile long.

Brad: Betty buzzkill, his is. Okay? In fact, you know what? I think he's getting ready sneeze. You better close your eyes, cover your ears! Oh know!

[ Brad sneezes ] He blew his nose right off. Did you see that?

Katie: I think it's time for you to ge to bed, missy. You don't want to catch a cold from your duck-billed platypus.

Sage: I love you, uncle brad.

Brad: I love you, too, sugarbun.

Katie: You don't have to take a bath tonight.

Sage: Yay!

[ Phone rings ]

Brad: Yeah?

Jack: Brad?

Brad: Hey, jack, is that you?

Jack: Sure is. Found parker.

Brad: Oh, that's awesome, that's great. Hey, they found parker! Is he okay?

Jack: Yeah, he's fine. We're bringing him home. How's everything there?

Brad: Well, you know, katie was a little a bit out of her league, but, you know, I came to the rescue.

Jack: Well, when you're finished patting yourself on the back, can you put her on?

Brad: Well, she's putting sage to sleep. Can I take a message?

Jack: Yeah, tell her that

we're very grateful. And thank you, and that I'm going to be taking parker over to carly's for a little bit. You sticking around?

Brad: You asking me to babysit?

Jack: Yeah, I'm asking you to babysit.

Brad: I'd be happy to.

Jack: And tell katie I'll call. Hello?

J.J.: Wait, did you just say they found parker?

Brad: Yeah, yeah. That was your dad on the phone. Your brother's fine, and they're bringing him home.

Faith: Told you!

J.J.: Is he okay?

Brad: He's okay, he's okay.

J.J.: You know, I don't care -- no matter how bad things he does. I'm just going to let it slide.

Katie: What is going on?

Brad: You didn't hear me?

J.J.: Dad called, they found parker.

Faithz and they're bringing him home.

Katie: Oh, thank god, that is so wonderful!

J.J.: Let's go put the screensaver on the painting. Come on.

Fath: All right.

Brad: Actually, jack is taking parker over to carly's for the night.

Katie: Oh. Okay, great. Did he say anything else?

Brad: Just that he was going to be awhile, and that probably you should head home.

Katie: Okay. That's what I'll do.

Brad: I know it's upsetting that jack is headed over to the house with carly. But you know, katie, you've just got to remember, with those two, those bonds, they go deep.

Katie: You were batting 1,000, brad. The peanut butter and bananas, and the duck-billed platypus. Don't ruin it.

Lucinda: Hey, hi! It's that time! Let's celebrate! Champagne all around!

Margo: You don't think we should wait for the bride and groom?

Lucinda: Oh, they'll be here momentarily. Your brother said that we should party.

Emma: Well, they should be here by now. I mean, there wasn't any traffic.

Margo: Well, didn't you just say that meg had to go back for something?

Emma: Yes, for her watch. I don't know.

Lucinda: Oh, my heavens. Is there any food, by the way? I'm starving -- starving!

Lily: Mother, you have to remember, this is not your party, it's thiers.

Lucinda: It's my party in every way that counts, darling. And yours, and yours! For heavens sake! Here! Here is to the bride!

[ Glasses clinking ]

Paul: Just get the plane on the runway. We're leaving as soon as we get there.

Paul: Hello, could you please tell me if the montgomery wedding reception has begun? Well, you could look. I don't know, is there a big black limousine outside? I mean, the bride would have walked right by your desk.

Margo: I know this is a marriage of convenience for meg, anyway. But for my brother, I think he really cares for her.

Lily: They've been friends a long time. I just hope craig is not shocked when she does not return his affection.

Emma: Margo, do you have craig's cell phone number? I've been trying to call meg, but she won't pick up.

Margo: Oh, well -- yeah, I'll call him.

Emma: They really should be here by now. It's been too long.

Lily: It has been awhile.

Board member: And you're sure you're coming back? Because montgomery seemed to feel that he's here for the long term.

Lucinda: Oh, no, money in the bank. Oh, excuse me. I thought I told you to stay in your room.

Paul: They're gone. There's no sign of them. They've disappeared. I checked outside, there's no limousine. I called meg, she's not picking up.

Lucinda: Of course she's not picking up. She's in the back of a limousine with craig. For heaven's sake, go back to your room and stay calm. She'll be here.

Paul: Hi.

Margo: Hi.

Paul: Something wrong?

Margo: I hope not. Emma's kind of worried about meg. She's not answering the phone, craig's not answering, either. So I'm just calling the limo company to see if the driver's checked in. Excuse me.

Lucinda: Well, craig is probably drinking a toast out of her tiny slipper.

Paul: They're not coming.

Lucinda: What do you mean they're not coming? She's coming, because she's going to sign the papers to give me back my company.

Paul: He's onto us. He figured it out. He's taken her somewhere.

Lucinda: We better hope not, darling. Because if he -- if he's onto her, you may not see meg again.

Announcer: On the next "as the world turns" --

Jack: We need you.

Carly: You don't know how much it means to me to hear you say that.

[ Door opening ]

Luke: It happened again.

Maddie: What did?

Luke: I've fallen for the wrong guy.

Paul: Craig did not whisk meg away for her honeymoon. He's abducted her, and he's going to punish her for betraying him.
