Vienna: We're going to miss Jack and Katie's engagement party if we don't stop.

Henry: Who?

Vienna: Oh Henry, you're terrible.

Henry: I think -- listen to me -- I think that after a long day of serving our loyal customers and earning an honest buck, we owe it to ourselves to enjoy all the perks of being our own bosses.

Col Mayer: Oh, pardon me? I'm sorry. I must be in the wrong place. I'm looking for a Henry Coleman.

Vienna: Oh, no, no, no, you found him. Henry, this very handsome man is here to see you.

Henry: Hi, hi, how's it going? We're closed.

Col. Mayer: The sign outside said open 24 hours.

Henry: Yeah, well, it's kind of private party, you know what I'm saying? Can you come back tomorrow?

Col. Mayer: Perhaps I should introduce myself. I'm Colonel Winston Mayer. My son, Noah, is moving in with your sister. And I thought under the circumstances, we should probably meet.

Henry: Absolutely, yes, yes. It's a pleasure -- pleasure to meet you, Sir. Maddie has told me so -- you're a Colonel.

Vienna: Colonel, please sit down.

Col. Mayer: Oh, no, no --

Vienna: And yes, you're right. We should get friendly.

Col. Mayer: No, thank you. That's -- that's -- no, I mean, look, you and Mr. Coleman seem very busy.

Vienna: Oh, no, no, we were just fooling around. We can do that anytime. Please sit. Sit.

Maddie: And it's really great because they have all of these cute, little one bedroom apartments right near the campus.

Luke: Oh, so, you guys are getting a one bedroom?

Maddie: Well, I mean, that's all the space we need and that's all we can afford. But we think we found the perfect place, right?

Noah: Yeah, we liked it so much, we were ready to sign the lease right there.

Luke: Well, I've heard once you find the right one, you know. Dad, Dad -- hey, what's going on? I thought you and Mom were going to a party at the farm?

Holden: Yeah, in a bit.

Luke: Is everything okay?

Holden: Yeah, everything's fine.

Luke: Okay. Uh, well, you know, Maddie and this is Noah.

Maddie: Hi.

Noah: Hey, how are you?

Holden: Luke's mentioned you before.

Noah: Nice to meet you, Sir.

Holden: Nice to meet you, too.

Luke: Dad, really, what's going on? You're acting very strange.

Holden: Have you heard about the shooting at the Lakeview?

Luke: What? No, let me see this.

Maddie: Oh, my God, Noah, look -- that's the woman that we saw Dusty arguing with. He grabbed her and said she'd be sorry, remember?

Noah: Yeah, I know. That's crazy.

Holden: Wait. You heard Dusty threaten her?

Maddie: We walked in on it. Your mom must be freaking out.

Luke: Yeah, probably. I mean, it's her hotel, and Dusty's a good friend of hers.

Maddie: Right, but not only that, I mean, she was --

Holden: She was what? Maddie --

Maddie: She was there, too.

Lily: I just heard. Rosanna's at the Lakeview with Paul? She's awake, Paul is alive, what are you wearing?

Carly: This old thing?

Lily: It's a little -- yeah, it's a cute little number. Where're you going?

Carly: Jack and Katie's engagement party. I was invited.

Lily: So was I. It's a casual attire affair. It's a barbeque.

Carly: So, I can't look nice?

Lily: You can't look like that. What are you doing?

Jack: Come on, Guys, put a little muscle in it.

Parker: Well, this is supposed to be a party, can we do something fun?

J.J.: Yeah, like burn something on the grill.

Parker: Oh, yeah, and we could get the flames to shoot up. That would so rule.

Jack: You could help Sage and Katie with the balloons if you like?

J.J.: No, that's girl stuff.

Jack: Okay, then forget that pyromania and let's get the benches.

Katie: How many balloons do you think we need? Obviously, I can guess what your favorite color is, because we used up all the pink ones.

Sage: Mommy and I both like yellow best.

Katie: Well, luckily, we have a lot of yellow ones left, where do you think we should put them? How about on this chair here? So I was thinking, when I marry your dad, I'm going to need a flower girl. What do you think? Are you interested?

Sage: Really?

Katie: Really, of course. Who else would I ask? Oh, but I do have to say one thing, you cannot show up the bride. You have to promise, because that would not be cool.

Sage: I promise, I wonít.

Katie: Okay, you're in.

Sage: Daddy, Daddy! Katie said I could be the flower girl at your wedding.

Brad: Darn, I was hoping that you would ask me to be your flower girl.

Katie: Oh, no, you? You would definitely take attention away from the bride.

Brad: That's impossible. Hey, where are you going?

Katie: There's still more setting up to do for the party. Why?

Brad: Well, I've hardly seen you since you've been back.

Katie: Well, weren't you supposed to be looking at the dailies from Hawaii shoot? Doesn't that count as seeing me?

Brad: No. Oh, yeah, yeah, you know, the hula segment. That was wow, Man, that was some mind altering TV right there.

Katie: That's nice. What is that supposed to be? A compliment?

Brad: Hey, aren't you going to thank me?

Katie: For what?

Brad: For protecting your territory. Slowing down the Carly express. Man, I single-handedly, you know, saved your entire future with Jack.

Carly: I'm not up to anything. I was invited to a party and I'm going.

Lily: Carly, give me a little more credit. I know how you operate. This is not just some little black dress.

Carly: All right, so the dress is special. Jack's favorite. He could never resist me in this dress.

Lily: Or out of it.

Carly: Oh, come on. Stop making it sound like I'm going to pounce on the man if he asks if I want a burger. I'm not.

Lily: Don't tell me that you're not trying to get Jack's attention in that dress. This is an engagement party. To Katie.

Carly: But he's not in love with her.

Lily: Carly --

Carly: He doesn't love her the way that he loves me. I've seen the way that he still looks at me. He feels what I feel. The pull. The connection. And no matter what he says, that will never change.

Lily: You do know that this is crazy, don't you?

Carly: It's not crazy. It's called fighting for what I want. And for what I know, deep down inside, Jack wants too.

Holden: What exactly did you hear Dusty say to this Cheri woman?

Maddie: Well, she said something like she was -- she meant to hurt him and she was glad that she did. And then, he told her that she would be sorry and that's when Mrs. Snyder interrupted them.

Luke: Wait, Mom didn't tell you about any of this?

Holden: Well, I've barely seen your mother lately. Anyway, we talked about it briefly.

Luke: Well, did you hear what this woman said? Like how she was going to hurt Dusty?

Holden: Cheri Love was the one responsible for posting that video of Dusty and Alison Stewart online.

Noah: Man. That explains why Dusty was so upset. I mean, putting his personal life out there for everybody to see and talk about.

Maddie: You know what? I'm so sorry. I told Henry that I'd meet him so he can co-sign the lease.

Noah: Oh, do you want me to come with you?

Maddie: No, that's fine. Besides, you wanted to edit some "Invisible Girl", right?

Holden: Is that the project you've been writing?

Luke: Yeah, yeah. Noah's directing and editing and Maddie, as you know, is our star.

Maddie: Well, it's a very tough job I have. Are you guys going to be back at the studio?

Noah: Well, I did need to do some editing. I didn't know Luke was going to --

Luke: Well, I was going to do some writing --

Noah: I don't --

Luke: No, no, no, it's okay. Go, go, I have to talk to my dad anyways.

Noah: Okay. It's very nice to meet you, Sir.

Holden: You, too.

Maddie: Bye.

Noah: Bye-bye.

Holden: Is everything all right at work?

Luke: Yeah.

Holden: Something just seemed a little off. You didn't want to help with that edit.

Luke: Uh, Noah knows what he's doing. He doesn't need me looking over his shoulder.

Holden: Seems like a good kid. Don't you like him?

Luke: What? Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah.

Holden: What's going on?

Luke: Dad, I really, really don't want to talk about this with you.

Holden: I just don't want to see you unhappy, especially after everything that happened with Kevin.

Luke: Kevin, that was completely different. You know, Kevin wasn't -- it was just different.

Holden: Yes, this is different. You work with this guy. He's dating Maddie, she's your friend --

Luke: Dad. I know. I get it. And I have it under control. So don't worry, okay?

Holden: You're my son. One day you'll be 52 and you know what I'll be worried about? You.

Luke: I'm fine.

Holden: All right.

Luke: So, why didn't Mom tell you about this fight between Dusty and this Cheri woman?

Holden: You know, things just have been crazy with me and your mom lately.

Luke: Right. Look, what's going on between you two?

Holden: You know what? Don't worry about it.

Luke: Dad, one day you'll be 52, and you know what I'll be worried about?

Holden: What?

Luke: That you didn't do everything you could to fix things with Mom.

Lily: Carly, you know Jack. He's not throwing this party to get to you. He's doing it to celebrate the fact that he's in love with Katie. And he's going to marry her. He's moved on.

Carly: No, he hasnít. He's just -- he's trying to convince himself that he has.

Lily: But he's doing a pretty good job of it.

Carly: I wish you could see him when it's just the two of us. When we were together, looking for J.J., we were in sync. Working together. We were reading each other's minds.

Lily: Your child was missing. Of course, there's going to be a connection between the two of you. Who wouldn't be connected?

Carly: It was more than that. When he was here, and Katie was gone, there were times when we were a family again. We were Jack and Carly. He wanted me.

Lily: Did something happen between the two of you --

Carly: No. No, nothing like that.

Lily: Carly --

Carly: I can -- I can just tell that he still wants me.

Lily: Carly --

Carly: I know what I feel.

Lily: Carly --

Carly: And I know --

Lily: Carly, you have to stop! None of this helping. Nothing happened with Jack when he was here because he's in love with Katie. I'm sorry. I know that's harsh. But I don't know how else to get through to you.

Carly: You really think this marriage is going to happen.

Lily: You don't?

Carly: I know Jack. And I know when he accepts that what he feels for me is real, he'll come back to me.

Lily: It's like talking to a brick wall. But I do love you.

Carly: I love you too. But you know as well as I do, that Jack belongs with me. Not Katie.

Katie: My relationship with Jack doesn't need saving.

Brad: Well, not anymore, I mean, thanks to me. I told you I was going to keep an eye on Carly, especially since Jack was all -- you know, laid up and helpless on Carly's couch.

Katie: I specifically told you not to do anything.

Brad: Do you know how many things you tell me not to do?

Katie: Apparently not enough, because you keep doing them anyway. You don't listen.

Brad: What? I listen to you. You didn't see what Carly was trying to do!

Katie: I don't care. I don't care, Brad.

Brad: Really?

Katie: Really.

Brad: Really?

Katie: And you know why?

Brad: Enlighten me.

Katie: Because Jack and I are adults. We have an adult relationship based on respect and openness and communication.

Brad: Whoa, wow, you'd better stop talking like that, you're getting me all hot and bothered.

Katie: And we love each other. When we got together, we didn't have to manipulate people or situations, like you and Carly are so hell-bent on doing. It happened, naturally and slowly and beautifully, because it's meant to be.

Brad: Well, I'll tell you what? Carly sure doesn't see things that way --

Katie: Carly is only a problem because you keep throwing her in my face. And I'm tired of it.

Brad: Okay. Okay, okay. I overstepped the bounds, the lines. You know, but what I did, I did for you. Don't laugh. So you could be -- have a happy future with Jack.

Katie: Oh.

Brad: You know, and considering how I feel about the two of you together, I thought that would prove to you that I was being sincere.

Katie: Do you want to prove to me that you're sincere? Apologize.

Brad: For what?

Katie: For interfering in my life when I keep telling you not to.

Brad: Fine. I am sorry. It will never happen again.

Katie: Just out of curiosity, what did Carly do?

Vienna: How did you manage to get lipstick all the way over here?

Henry: Well, some things must remain mysteries, Sweetheart. So, I -- I'm really glad that you stopped by, Sir. Colonel. Colonel Sir.

Col. Mayer: You can call me "Win."

Vienna: Oh, Win! That's a fantastic name. You must be a lucky man.

Col. Mayer: Not as lucky -- I suppose, yes!

Vienna: Oh well, you most certainly are a very handsome man. No wonder our dear Madeline is so crazy about your son! Oh, and Henry's right, it's so good to meet you!

Henry: Sweetheart, down. Let the man breathe, yeah?

Col. Mayer: Thank you. Your sister tells me you recently acquired this establishment?

Henry: Yes.

Vienna: Well, Henry actually won it with the most glorious hand in - -

Henry: Oh, I don't think the Colonel needs to hear all the boring details.

Col. Mayer: And did you always want to be in the service industry?

Henry: No. I just sort of fell into it.

Col. Mayer: What did you do before?

Henry: Oh, a little of this, a little that.

Vienna: Oh, please. Don't be so modest, Henry. Before, Henry -- he was a card shark, he was a TV producer, a private investigator, and he was a limo driver. So, you might say that I have a thing for a man in uniform?

Henry: And what is it that you do, Colonel?

Col. Mayer: I'm a Colonel. In the army. Retired, of course.

Henry: Ah, yes, of course. Of course! Semper fi! Wait a second -- that's the marines, I'm sorry.

Col. Mayer: It doesn't matter. Considering your fondness for uniforms, I must say that is certainly quite the outfit you have on.

Vienna: Yeah, isn't it amazing? You should have seen what they were wearing before.

Henry: Coffee?

Col. Mayer: Please.

Maddie: Henry, thank you so much for co-signing this lease. Otherwise Noah and I would not be able to get this apartment. Ask me again how happy I am that you're finally a legitimate business man.

Henry: Madeline --

Maddie: Yeah, it's right here --

Henry: Madeline --

Maddie: What?

Henry: We have company.

Maddie: Colonel Mayer. What are you doing here?

Col. Mayer: I, you know, since you're moving in with my son, I thought I should meet your family -- and words fail to describe the experience.

Noah: Hey.

Luke: Hey.

Noah: You came. I didn't think you were going to.

Luke: Are you sorry that I did?

Noah: No. No, not at all.

Luke: I believe you.

Noah: Okay.

Luke: I just wish it didn't make you so uncomfortable.

Lily: Holden, I am so sorry. I didn't mean to keep you waiting, but I was caught up --

Holden: Doing what? Breaking up another fight? Like you did between Dusty and Cheri?

Lily: Who told you about that?

Holden: I can tell you who didnít.

Lily: Holden, I'm --

Holden: Lily, I want to know when you were planning to tell me you not only saw Dusty with that woman, but you heard him threaten her.

Lily: Can we not do this here?

Holden: No, we are going to do this here, because I want answered, now. When we talked about this the other night, you had nothing to say.

Lily: I -- I was just waiting for the right time.

Holden: The right time? It's never the right time for you. You were never going to tell me about it.

Lily: If you'd just let me explain, please --

Holden: I'm tired of your explanations, and I'm tired for hearing your stories second hand.

Lily: I wasn't -- [Lily sighs] itís not like I wasn't telling you. You were just so angry with me when I hid Dusty's gun from the police - -

Holden: So, you keeping anymore secrets?

Lily: Yes, because I knew you'd be upset about the situation -- about Dusty. I just -- I couldn't take it.

Holden: So, you kept quiet.

Lily: What was I supposed to do? I couldn't tell the police.

Holden: Why not?

Lily: Because they could've misunderstand the entire situation!

Holden: Yes, like me? What am I not getting here?

Lily: Dusty was furious with Cheri, after she posted that video, online, of him with Alison. He had every right to be angry with her, but he did not kill her, Holden!

Holden: Right. Right. That's why you took the gun. That's why you tried to hide it from the cops. You know what, you're lucky that you didn't get charged with obstruction. Am I the only one who's putting us first here?

Lily: Dusty needed me. And he still needs me. I have to be there for him. He doesn't have anybody else.

Holden: Yeah, well maybe there's a reason for that. Maybe there's a reason nobody wants to stand up for the guy.

Lily: I can't -- I can't do this. I canít. Why don't you go to the party, and I'll meet you there, later?

Holden: Where are you going? Answer me.

Lily: I'm going to the police station to post bail for Dusty.

Katie: So, what did Carly say?

Brad: Well, she thinks she and Jack are inevitable, and it's just a matter of time before he comes back to her, and wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah.

Katie: I see.

Brad: Look, if you ask me, if it was going to happen, it would've happened by now. He was on the couch for, like, what, a few days? If she couldn't make it then, it's not going to happen. You okay?

Katie: I'm fine. Yeah. I'm just going to go say hi to some of the other guests. Thank you, Brad. For what you did. However unnecessary it was, it was sweet.

Brad: That's me.

Carly: Katie. Hi.

Katie: Carly.

Carly: I bought you and Jack an engagement gift. Congratulations.

Katie: You didn't have to do that.

Carly: Well, you were kind enough to invite me for the kids' sake. It was the least I could do. [Door opens] Hello, Jack.

Jack: Carly. I'm glad you could make it.

Carly: The place looks great.

Jack: Thank you. Sage helped Katie with the decorations.

Carly: How fun.

Katie: It was.

Jack: Listen, I'm sorry, I gotta steal you away. I want to introduce you to Sarah Foster. She's new to the force. Huge fan of the show.

Katie: Oh, yeah. I want to meet her.

Carly: Don't you want to open my gift? I know it's not much --

Jack: Yeah -- if you don't mind, could you just put it there on the porch with the rest of them? We're going to open them all later.

Carly: Sure. Yeah. No problem.

Jack: Thank you.

Noah: Luke, we've talked about this before. I can't -- I can't be gay, okay? It's not going to happen.

Luke: Because of your father?

Noah: Because of a lot of things. Why can't you just let it go?

Luke: This whole parent thing, I've been through it. I tried to hide it from my parents for a really long time. My mom even wanted to send me to this camp that was supposedly make me straight.

Noah: You didn't go?

Luke: Well, obviously. I even used Jade as my beard once.

Noah: Maddie is not my beard, okay? She's my girlfriend.

Luke: Noah, I'm sorry, I didn't mean --

Noah: We're in a relationship. We go out, we have sex, we're moving in together.

Luke: Well, that must be great for your father. He finally get a son that he gets to show off, you know, the one with the hot girlfriend that he's living with.

Noah: Do you know how long it's taken for my dad to say that he's proud of me? My whole life. And for once, he's not telling me to become a man, he's saying I already am one.

Luke: And you weren't before? Look, Noah, this thing you're fighting, I understand. I fought it too.

Noah: I know what I'm doing.

Luke: Yeah, so do I. You're telling yourself over and over and over in your head that you can make this work.

Noah: It is working.

Luke: Yeah, but for who? For your dad? But what about you? My God, what about Maddie? Can you really do this to her?

Noah: Maddie's happy. I make her happy.

Luke: Yeah, but Noah, what would make you happy?

Noah: I don't know.

Luke: Okay. So Maddie gets to be happy, even though she's living a lie. And your dad gets to be happy because he has a supposedly straight son.

Noah: Me and my dad, we're none of your business.

Luke: Yes, yes, you are. You made it my business when you kissed me. And when you told me that's what you wanted to do and you meant it.

Noah: I don't want to talk about this.

Luke: Okay, you know what? Maybe you're right. I mean, how hard can it be to fake a life with somebody, sharing a bed and meals. Sex. You and Maddie on vacation with dear old dad.

Noah: That's the life I want.

Luke: For now. But you know what? One day you're going to wake up and you're going to realize that the one thing you can't lie to yourself about anymore. Is that you've made this -- this life or this relationship or whatever you want to call it. With somebody that you've never been in love with.

Maddie: Well, this is a surprise. I didn't know that you'd be here.

Col. Mayer: It was a spur-of-the-moment visit.

Maddie: Oh, I don't think so. I think you came by purposely without me. It was a covert operation.

Col. Mayer: And you caught me. Is Noah here?

Maddie: Uh, he's at the studio.

Col. Mayer: He's hard at work. I really do like the effect you're having on him, Maddie. I couldn't be happier than you two moving in together.

Maddie: Good, thank you.

Col. Mayer: Perhaps maybe we can celebrate your new living arrangements tonight over dinner.

Vienna: Or, maybe, Henry and I can join you guys and we can make it a family --

Henry: Actually, we love too, but we have plans, I'm afraid. It's Jack and Katie's engagement party and it would be really rude to cancel on such short notice.

Col. Mayer: I agree. And please don't rearrange your evening on my account.

Henry: Maybe another night.

Col. Mayer: Yeah, yeah. Maddie, I'll be in touch.

Maddie: Okay.

Col. Mayer: Henry. Miss Hyatt.

Maddie: What happened before I got here?

Henry: Nothing.

Maddie: Henry --

Vienna: No, it was no big deal. The Colonel just walked in on us.

Maddie: He walked in on you?

Vienna: Yeah, just fooling around.

Maddie: Well, no wonder why he was acting all weird. The Colonel is very --

Henry: Uptight.

Maddie: Formal. He's very conservative.

Henry: Really? And yet he doesn't mind that you and Noah are living together?

Maddie: He likes me.

Henry: Go figure. Well, here's the lease here. Sign it so you can start living in sin with Noah.

Maddie: Okay, will you stop calling it that? What Noah and I have, it's very sweet and loving. Kind of what like you and Vienna have?

Vienna: I've never seen you this happy. You truly deserves this.

Henry: Here you go.

Maddie: Thank you.

Henry: I don't know why, but I have feel like I'm giving you away.

Maddie: Oh, Henry. Noah is going to be very good to me.

Henry: Yeah, if he's half the man you say he is, I'm sure everything will be fine. And if he's not, I know people.

Maddie: That won't be necessary. Okay. I'll see you guys later. Thank you again for this. I love you.

Henry: I love you, too. There she goes. My not so little sister about to embark on a life of sin. Speaking of sin, where were we, hm?

Vienna: Right here.

Holden: You cannot be serious.

Lily: I cannot leave Dusty sitting in a jail cell. He's an innocent man.

Holden: Why can't you see the situation for what it is?

Lily: Why can't you give Dusty the benefit of the doubt?

Holden: Because ballistics ID'd Dusty's gun as the murder weapon -- the gun that you took off him after he was arrested. If you go and bail him out, you know what that's going to look like?

Lily: It's going to look like I think he's innocent.

Holden: Or that you're more involved in this case than you're l know what that's going to look like?

Lily: It's going to look like I think he's innocent.

Holden: Or that you're more involved in this case than you're letting on. Why are you putting yourself out there for this guy -- he doesn't deserve it!

Lily: He did not kill Cheri. Besides, Dusty's partly in this mess because of me.

Holden: You?

Lily: Yes.

Holden: Why is this your fault?

Lily: Because Cheri -- Dusty told the cops about her little operation at the Avalon hotel. She came to the Lakeview and wanted to rent rooms from me. I was going to give her the rooms, but Dusty came to me and told me what she was up to. That's when Cheri went online and posted that video of him with Alison.

Holden: Yeah, but he didn't stop there. He still went into her room, didn't he?

Lily: Cheri said she wanted to meet with him. I tried to stop him from going.

Holden: You did?

Lily: He wouldn't listen to me.

Holden: Yeah, well that's enough. You did all you could do to help the guy out.

Lily: Dusty went out on a limb to protect me. Can't you understand why I have to stand by him?

Holden: No, I donít. And nothing you have told me makes me believe that you were helping an innocent man.

Brad: I have got to give you credit for not giving up. I mean, the way you keep going after Jack when it's so obvious that he's over you.

Carly: Don't you have a keg to tap somewhere? Preferably far away from me?

Brad: Come on, Carly. Don't be mad at me. I'm just trying to keep you from deluding yourself.

Carly: The only thing I was deluded about was thinking I could rely on you.

Brad: You wound me. I mean really, you really wound me.

Carly: I wish I could.

Brad: Oh hey, Carly? That's a beautiful dress.

Carly: Hello Baby.

Sage: Guess what? I'm going to be the flower girl at Daddy's and Katie's wedding.

Carly: Oh my goodness. That's wonderful. Did Daddy ask you to do that?

Sage: No, Katie did. Isn't that cool?

Carly: Yes, yes it is. And you are going to be the most beautiful flower girl ever.

Carly: Hello.

Parker: You left this inside.

Carly: What is all this?

J.J.: Dad got us poles because we helped out with the party.

Carly: Oh, that's very nice of him, and I hope you thanked him.

Sage: We did.

J.J.: Hey -- do you want to come with us? We're going down to the pond.

Carly: Oh that's a very tempting offer. You know, I think I'll stay here with the grownups, huh?

Parker: You're staying?

Carly: Why wouldn't I?

Parker: It's just that you're, you know a little over-dressed for a barbeque.

Sage: I think she looks really pretty.

Carly: Well thank you, Sweetheart.

Parker: I didn't say that she didnít. It's just -- this is Jack and Katie's engagement party, Mom.

J.J.: Mom, you look nice. You just look sort of -- fancy.

Carly: I'm sorry, I just didn't realize that this was going to be quite so casual. But look at it this way -- I'll be easy to spot in the crowd.

Sage: Can we go now?

Parker: Yeah. Come on. Let's go.

Carly: See you later.

Jack: Can I have your attention, please? Just really, really quick -- Katie and I, first of all, would like to thank you all for coming here today. It means a lot to have you all here, sharing our happiness.

Brad: Hear, hear!

Jack: Yes, and I want you all to know that because of this incredible, beautiful woman standing right here beside me, I am the luckiest man alive.

Lily: You've known Dusty since we were practically children. How could you think he could take someone's life?

Holden: How can you not? Look at who he's become -- since he came back to Oakdale. Since Barbara brought him back here to break up your sister's engagement to Paul.

Lily: I'm not excusing that.

Holden: And what about that boxing match that he rigged? Aaron almost got killed.

Lily: I know.

Holden: And then he hurt Aaron again by sleeping with Alison.

Lily: I know how easy it is for someone to make mistakes.

Holden: No, these aren't mistakes. This is a pattern. It's self-destructive, and Dusty has perfected it. And he's dragging you into it.

Lily: He did not do this!

Holden: Really? He didn't do it? Just like he didn't pull a gun on Craig Montgomery and put a bullet in his chest? You and I both know that he is capable of doing this. And maybe this time he actually succeeded.

Lily: No! No -- he didn't do this. He is innocent. And I need to help him.

Holden: Why can't you do me one favor and put your family first? Just this once.

Lily: Why -- why do I always have to choose between one or the other? Why do I always have to make a choice?

Holden: You know what? If you have to ask that -- then you need to take a step back and look at what you're doing.

Lily: You're asking me to abandon a friend who needs me.

Holden: No, I'm asking you not to abandon us.

Noah: So you don't think I can love Maddie?

Luke: I think you were born one way and no matter how hard you try to change it, you canít.

Noah: Oh, so because you kissed me, I can't love Maddie now?

Luke: Do you?

Noah: Yeah -- in a way, I do.

Luke: In what way?

Noah: I don't know -- I just do. Because I wouldn't want to hurt her.

Luke: And you think once she finds out the truth it's not going to hurt her?

Noah: She wonít. You promised.

Luke: Noah, sooner or later you're going to have to deal with your feelings.

Noah: Yeah, well, then later.

Luke: Noah --

Noah: I'm sorry you don't get that.

Luke: Look, Noah, I get that you're scared and that you're not ready to admit you're gay --

Noah: Look, you don't know how I'm feeling. Stop pretending like you know everything.

Luke: Okay, you're right. I donít.

Noah: So just get over yourself, Luke.

Luke: Noah, wait --

Noah: Leave me alone Ė

Jack: I'm going to embarrass you now.

Katie: Thanks for the warning.

Jack: Before Katie came into my life -- my life, if you want to call it that, was -- not -- not good. I mean, I had three great kids and a great job, but that was about it. I was sleepwalking through the day. And what I needed, what I didn't even know I needed, was a friend. And those of you who know Katie know that's what she does best. She listened and she didn't judge and she was there. No matter what. And it took awhile for me to realize, I'm a little slow on the uptake, but it took a while for me to realize that I had this really amazing person in my life. And one day I was looking at her, and I thought -- if I lose her, if I let her go, if I don't kiss right then and there, then I am the world's biggest idiot. So I did. I kissed her, and that was that. I was sold. I was gone. One kiss and I was completely woken up.

Katie: Stop it. You're going to make me cry in front of all these people.

Jack: No. No, no, no. No more crying for either one of us. Thank you. Thank you for taking a chance on a broken man. I don't think I can ever thank you enough. But, I did get you this --

Katie: Jack --

Jack: No, go on. Open it.

Katie: You're making me feel bad, I didn't get you anything.

Jack: You gave me everything the day you said yes.

Katie: Oh Jack -- it's beautiful.

Jack: It's to remind you of all the time we have to look forward to spending together.

Katie: I love it. I love you, so much.

Jack: I Love you, too. Here come on, we'll put it on.

Katie: Okay.

Jack: No. No. What?

Katie: It doesn't fit.

Henry: Oh my God.

Vienna: Oh my darling, I feel the same way!

Henry: No, no, Honey. I just -- I just realized that between the Colonel's unexpected visit and then Maddie stopping by with the lease and then all of this, and we are missing the engagement party.

Vienna: Oh, but Katie will understand.

Henry: No, no. The girl holds a grudge, believe me.

Vienna: Not when it comes to true love, and the passion between two people who feel as deeply as we do. She'll understand why we couldn't pull away from each other.

Henry: She is a very forgiving woman.

Vienna: You know what I want to do right now?

Henry: Oooh! Prep cook and saucy waitress?

Vienna: No, better.

Henry: What? What could be better than prep cook and saucy waitress right here on this table?

Vienna: You and me.

Maddie: Noah? What did I just walk in on?

Noah: Nothing.

Luke: Yeah, we were just --

Maddie: You were just what?

Noah: Talking -- right?

Luke: Yeah. We were talking about "Invisible Girl" and we had creative differences.

Maddie: No, you weren't.

Noah: What?

Maddie: You weren't having a creative disagreement. Because every time that we have meetings about the show, you two are on the same page. But then, when you two are alone and I show up and it's weird, like it is now, you say that that's what it is. But I know that it isn't. You guys have been acting like this for awhile now and I want to know why. And this time, I want the truth.

Katie: Bye Guys.

Jack: Thanks for coming, Guys. Appreciate it.

Guest: See you later.

Katie: Well, Mr. Snyder, you sure know how to throw a party.

Jack: I don't know about that. The party favors could've been better.

Katie: What are you talking about?

Jack: The watch. I wish the band had fit.

Katie: Oh, that is such a non-issue. These things are so easy to get fitted. If Vienna were here, she would've called her jeweler friend, and it would already be around my wrist.

Jack: That doesn't make me feel better.

Katie: Well, how about this? I love it. And I love you. And I can't wait to marry you.

Jack: Okay, well now everything's perfect.

Katie: Good. All right, I'm going to go put this back in the box so we can have it sized in the morning.

Jack: All right.

Katie: Thank you.

Carly: Jack --

Jack: Hey. Kids all right?

Carly: Yeah, they're looking forward to fried fish for breakfast. And since they're spending the night here with you --

Jack: Yeah, I guess I get to clean them. You know, I'll have the boys do it. They'll find that fun.

Carly: I want to talk to you.

Jack: I kind of have my hands full right now.

Carly: I could help.

[Phone rings]

Jack: You know what? Why don't you just give me a minute, let me throw this stuff in there and answer the phone, okay?

Brad: Ouch.

Jack: Hello?

Holden: Jack, its Holden.

Jack: You and Lily missed the party.

Brad: Hey, tell Holden that I saved him and Lily a couple of beers if they're headed over here.

Jack: Brad saved you a couple beers.

Holden: Yeah, I -- I heard. Listen, I'm sorry that we weren't there, and I just wanted to call and apologize for that.

Jack: Holden, you don't sound so good. Everything all right?

Holden: Actually, things are pretty far from all right.

Cop: Ma'am, can I help you? Ma'am?

Lily: Yes. I'd like to post bail for Dusty Donovan.

Holden: No, no -- don't worry about it. Really.

Jack: You sure?

Holden: Yeah, yeah. Everything's fine. I just wanted to call, see how the party went. Wish you the best.

Jack: Well, I -- I gotta tell you, it couldn't have gone better.

Carly: Lovely party. I was just leaving.

Katie: Without talking to Jack? That is why you were sticking around 'til the bitter end, isn't it?

Carly: Katie, I really do not want to fight.

Katie: Neither do I. That's why this has to stop. Now. Seriously, Carly. You didn't think I would notice the way you're dressed tonight? You didn't think I'd hear about the little stunt you pulled while I was away?

Carly: I happen to like this dress. And given the circumstances I wanted to feel good, okay? And as far as this stunt goes, I really don't have any idea what you're talking about, so --

Katie: I know you love Jack. I know Jack knows you love him. But did you hear his toast? Carly, you know who he wants to be with. And I'm not saying this to hurt you. Really, I'm not. But you need to listen to me -- for everyone involved. If you love Jack -- I mean, truly love him, which I believe you do, you need to let him go.

Next week on "As the World Turns."

Doctor: You might want to consider finding an egg-donor.

Alison: Let me do it.

Craig: Rosanna has frozen all of my assets. We're broke.

Lily: I think I know who killed Cheri. The thing is, that person's still out there.

Luke: We weren't arguing about the project -- there's something else.

Katie: It just never occurred to me that you wouldn't want to have children.
