Holden: If you really want to help Lily, then why don't you get the hell out of here?

Dusty: I'm sorry. I'm sorry that your son got hurt.

Holden: Yeah, you should be sorry!

Lily: Stop it! It is not Dusty's fault.

Holden: If either one of you had gone to the police and told them what you suspected --

Lily: We had no evidence, Holden.

Holden: If you had told them, they might've known to look for some.

Lily: Do you think Dusty wanted to get hurt? Winston Mayer almost killed him. If it helps you to be angry at somebody, be angry at the psychopath who wanted to hurt our son just because he's gay.

[Noah kisses Maddie]

Maddie: Noah -- what are you doing?

Holden: Our son is lying in a hospital bed paralyzed. Don't you have anything better to do than stand around and defend Dusty?

Lily: Don't you have anything better to do than to beat him up? How is this helping Luke?

Dusty: I shouldn't have come.

Holden: Yeah, you're right.

Dusty: I don't want to cause any more trouble. It's the last thing your family needs. If you need anything, you let me know.

Holden: Why don't you just leave us all alone?

Lily: Thank you, thank you. Us, us, us? Is there any us right now, Holden? Our son is going through the most difficult time of his life and you and I are barely speaking. What are we going to do about that?

Noah: I just want to be with you, like we used to.

Maddie: We canít.

Noah: What? You don't want me anymore?

Maddie: It doesn't matter if I do or not. You want Luke. And you belong with him now, not me.

Brad: You're late. That's my job.

Katie: Maybe not much longer.

Brad: What do you mean?

Katie: Remember that assignment I was offered in Hawaii?

Brad: Yeah --

Katie: I shouldn't have turned it down.

Brad: Well what are you saying? You and Jack are going to move to Hawaii?

Katie: Not Jack.

Brad: Hey, hey, hey, wait a minute. You got a great gig with a terrific partner like me, and not only are you going to throw that away, you're going to throw your marriage away too?

Katie: I'm ready, but the job is long gone. So you're stuck with me a little while longer.

Brad: You know what? You know, I have thought you were a lot of things, but never a quitter.

Jack: Hey, how'd you sleep?

Carly: Fine. Where are the kids?

Jack: Football game -- Oakdale High.

Carly: Oh well, you know I think they only have candy and nachos at that snack bar.

Jack: Yeah, I fed them before they left.

Carly: Thank you. I suppose that's why I was dreaming about roast beef. And apple pie?

Jack: Just a second.

Carly: Oh --

Jack: Yes.

Carly: This really is a dream come true.

Jack: Stop it, okay? Just --

Carly: What?

Jack: Acting so damn brave, like you have all the time in the -- I'm sorry. I should let you play this the way you want to play it. It's just that I have a hard time forgetting what's really happening.

Carly: Well, Jack -- things aren't always as tragic as they seem.

Katie: I'm not quitting anything. Jack and I are just taking a little break for a while. That's all.

Brad: A break? Wait, wait. You guys haven't even been married, what? Not even two weeks?

Katie: I just -- I'm doing what's best for everyone involved, okay?

Brad: Do you think it would be better if I was unemployed?

Katie: Is everything about you?

Brad: No. No, no, no, no. I'm -- look, I'm just kidding. I'm worried about you.

Katie: Don't be. Let's just do our job and get out of here.

Jack: I don't think I know anyone who's as strong as you.

Carly: Don't give me too much credit, Jack. There's something you don't know --

[Phone rings]

Jack: No, I'll get it. Hello?

Dr. Evers: Detective Snyder?

Jack: Yes.

Dr. Evers: It's Dr. Evers.

Jack: Dr. Evers. Hi.

Carly: Jack, let me talk to him.

Jack: Hold on. Just a second, she's right here, Doctor. Hold on.

Carly: Hello?

Dr. Evers: Hey, you out celebrating? Your family must be thrilled about the good news.

Carly: Uh, yeah.

Jack: I'll go warm up your dinner, okay?

Dr. Evers: Listen, you sound a little unconvinced about all this. And I don't blame you.

Carly: Why?

Dr. Evers: If five doctors told me I was dying, I'd have a hard time accepting my word too. Which is why I'd like you to come in for a few more tests.

Carly: More tests? What more could there be to do to me?

Dr. Evers: I want to get some more pictures of the abscess, confirm it's not growing, and see if we can't pinpoint the source of the infection.

Carly: Okay --

Dr. Evers: How you been feeling?

Carly: Better. Better now that I'm not taking medication I don't need.

Dr. Evers: I wish we could've spared you from that discomfort.

Carly: Well -- there are some silver linings, believe it or not.

Dr. Evers: So can I see you in about an hour or so?

Carly: I'll be there.

Jack: What are these doing in the trash?

[Jack is holding Carlyís medicine]

Lucinda: Hey, hey, Buddy. That's my bench.

Dusty: Hey, I pay my taxes and I was here first.

Lucinda: Now wait a minute, I had it first. I just got up for a seventh inning stretch, okay?

Dusty: Well, you don't leave a sign, so you're out of luck. Okay, I'll share. Come on.

Lucinda: Okay, I'll share.

Dusty: What do you got there?

Lucinda: Yeah, but you can't have a lick of my cone. I need this.

Dusty: It's dripping.

Lucinda: I need it, you know? I need the icy perfection.

Dusty: You just come from the hospital?

Lucinda: No. No, I'm on my way. I just -- I feel so bad. Poor kid -- I mean Luke. He's so young and so many awful things have happened to him.

Dusty: I'm more worried about his mother.

Lucinda: Why?

Dusty: Ask Lily. She needs all the support she can get right now. And she's not getting it from her husband.

Lucinda: Did something happen?

Dusty: Well, why don't you go down to the hospital? Talk to her. She'll tell you everything you need to know. I gotta go. I'll see ya.

Lucinda: Hey.

Dusty: Hey.

Lucinda: I could feel that -- that's --

Dusty: Maybe we'll trade.

Lucinda: No. Ice. Ice. Look, I thought that adorable smile was a little more crooked than usual.

Dusty: Whatever.

Lucinda: Yeah? Wait a minute. Holden popped you? Takes a lot to rile Holden.

Dusty: Enjoy your ice cream, Sweetheart.

Lucinda: Okay.

Brad: All right, so what happened between you and Jack? All that -- all that time that he has to spend with Carly?

Katie: Do you want me to have to redo my make-up?

Brad: No, no. I'm sorry. I know you don't want to talk about it. I just want to -- I just want to help you.

Katie: I know. Thanks. Actually, you can do something to help me.

Brad: What?

Katie: I didn't do my homework last night. So I was wondering if you could fill me in on the guest today.

Brad: Okay. Well, our first guest is a writer with a best-seller. I didn't read it either.

Katie: Great.

Brad: How could I, its chick lit. And I didn't take this job to stay up all night reading about -- it's a waste of time.

Katie: What's it about?

Brad: How to get back together with your lost love.

Jack: Are you not taking your medicine? Carly, I thought you were going to fight for every possible minute you could get with us.

Carly: Of course I am.

Jack: Listen, I know these pills have some pretty nasty side effects.

Carly: They sure do.

Jack: So what? Have you decided that it's not worth it?

Carly: No. No, I didn't even throw the pills away. The bottle must've fallen off the desk.

Jack: Are you sure?

Carly: Yeah. But now that you've reminded me, I suppose I should be a good patient and take my medicine, right?

Jack: Let me help you. Let me help you, please.

Holden: Lily, I don't want to fight with you. But I don't know how to stop history from repeating itself.

Lily: What do you mean?

Holden: How many times have we found ourselves sitting at a bedside? Ethan was sick. Faith was sick. You were sick. And I know you think that what I'm saying is that this is all your fault, but that's not what I'm saying.

Lily: What are you saying?

Holden: I just -- I don't want to keep going over the same ground. I'm going to go see Luke.

Lucinda: Darling?

Lily: Oh, Mother.

Noah: What happened with me and Luke -- it was a mistake. I never should've gone there.

Maddie: It's who you are.

Noah: Well, it's not who I want to be. Look at all the trouble I've caused.

Maddie: It's not your fault. The mistake would've been to deny who you really are.

Noah: I should've just stayed with you. I was happy. You were happy. You were, weren't you?

Maddie: Yeah. But I couldn't be now.

Noah: I should've just joined the army like my dad wanted me to. Then none of this would've happened. Luke would still be okay. And don't tell me that's not true, because you know it is.

Holden: You sure I can't get you something to eat?

Luke: No.

Holden: You know, you've got a lot of hard work ahead of you, and you're going to need to keep up your strength.

Luke: Does anybody even think that those exercises are gonna work? The physical therapist didn't even bother to come down here and show me how to do them.

Holden: No, he was here earlier, but you were asleep.

Luke: Look, Dad -- I'm just really tired of getting my hopes up and then having things just turn out like this. I can't do it anymore.

Holden: Luke -- come on, you don't -- you got better before --

Luke: Can you just -- can you just leave me alone, please?

Lucinda: I could fly in a specialist.

Lily: No, no, no. That won't be necessary. The people here are very good. I think so. Maybe Holden would disagree with me.

Lucinda: Maybe? Maybe? What do you mean? He hasn't expressed an opinion whether or not the care is adequate?

Lily: No, he hasnít. He's too busy blaming me for what happened.

Lucinda: That's ridiculous.

Lily: Uh no, maybe he's right. Maybe I should have come forward sooner about Noah's father.

Lucinda: Excuse me, what were you going to say? You don't have any proof.

Lily: No.

Lucinda: I mean, you were being a kind, imaginative mother, Darling. You didn't want to rock the boy's boat, you know? Until you had a real reason to. You're a good, good mother.

Lily: Holden doesn't think so. And it wasn't just that. I was trying to prove Dusty's innocence.

Lucinda: Well why not? He is innocent, he was innocent.

Lily: I know, but Holden's just very critical of me about everything these days, and he wonders why I can't tell him the truth.

Lucinda: He's a Snyder, Dear. They're always holier-than-thou. However, he's the man you married, he's the man you love. Right?

Lily: Yes, yes. I just feel like we're caught in this vicious cycle. And Luke is in the middle. And the truth is -- Holden and I both failed Luke.

Jack: So why is the doctor calling you?

Carly: He just wants to run some more tests.

Jack: What kind of tests?

Carly: Just scans, I think. Just to be sure to give me the right kind of medicine.

Jack: They haven't figured that out yet?

Carly: What do I -- what do I know, Jack? He wants to run more tests, I'm gonna have more tests.

Jack: Well it's a good thing I stayed then. I'll drive you.

Carly: No!

Brad: Emily, this is a terrific book.

Guest: Well thank you.

Katie: I really loved it.

Guest: Thank you, Katie. Everyone's had at least one great love, right?

Katie: I think in Brad's case, he's had more than one. What are you, in the triple digits now?

Guest: What about you, Katie?

Brad: Actually, Katie just got married. So anyway, these stories of yours, do you think they could really happen?

Guest: I think you could definitely fall in love with your best friend. You just start talking and laughing together. Sharing the good times and the bad. And it could just happen. You fall in love. And once you give your heart to your best friend, you never get it back.

Katie: Excuse me.

Jack: You can't drive yourself.

Carly: I can take a cab.

Jack: Why would you do that when I'm right here?

Carly: Jack, you need to talk to Katie. You need to go home.

Jack: Carly, I told you -- Katie wants some time apart while this is going on.

Carly: You mean while I'm alive.

Jack: Okay, listen. This is where I need to be right now. More importantly, it's where I want to be. So why don't we go see the doctor and find out what's going on.

Carly: Okay.

Carly: I just need a minute to get dressed.

Jack: Sure.

Carly: Jack, I'm really sorry to turn your life upside down like this.

Jack: You have nothing to apologize for. And the last person you should be worried about is me.

Carly: But I am. Just be a minute.

Brad: Well I'd like to thank Emily Giffin for being here with us.

Guest: Well thanks so much Brad. It's been a pleasure.

Brad: Absolutely. And please go pick up her book, "Something Borrowed" and the sequel "Something Blue" and her new best seller "Baby Proof." You'll be glad you did.

Stage crew: And we're out.

Brad: Awesome. You did fabulous.

Guest: Well thank you.

Brad: Aw, great.

Guest: That's great.

Brad: Thank you so much for coming.

Guest: Great to be here. Thank you.

Brad: Oh, Al, make sure you give her a copy of the show.

Guest: Oh, that would be great. Thanks.

Al: All right. Right this way, Ms. Giffin.

Katie: You wrapped already?

Brad: Yeah, well I just thought it would be easier for everyone. You're not mad, are you?

Katie: No. Grateful. Thank you. [Cell phone rings] Hello?

Jack: I was just checking on how you were doing.

Katie: I am in the middle of an interview right now. Sorry, I can't talk.

Brad: You're in the middle of an interview?

Katie: Jack and I have said everything we need to say at this point. He kissed her, Brad.

Brad: Jack kissed Carly?

Katie: Yeah. He still has feelings for her. I know -- big surprise. You tried to tell me at least a million times.

Brad: I had ulterior motives.

Katie: Yeah, but you were right. If I was honest with myself, I would've seen it all along.

Brad: Jack loves you, Katie.

Katie: Yes. But Carly is the one true love of his life. And even after she's gone, she's still going to have his heart. It'll never really be mine.

Lucinda: You will not spend any time or energy blaming yourself for this.

Lily: Tell that to Holden.

Lucinda: I intend to.

Lily: Don't say a word --

Burt: Mrs. Snyder?

Lily: Oh hi. Burt, this is Luke's physical therapist. This is my mother, Lucinda Walsh.

Burt: Pleased to meet you.

Lily: Are you here to see Luke?

Burt: Yeah, how's he feeling?

Lily: He tore up the paper of the exercises the nurse gave him.

Burt: Give him time. Give him time.

Lucinda: I think I'll get a cup of coffee for all of us.

Lily: Oh good, okay. Thanks.

Burt: Hey.

Luke: Hello.

Burt: I'm Burt. And you're Luke?

Luke: Good guess.

Burt: Can I get a few minutes alone with Luke?

Holden: Sure. I'm gonna go to Al's, get us some coffee.

Lily: Oh, my mom just went downstairs to get us some.

Holden: You know what, I -- I just need to get out of here, okay?

Burt: One thing we don't want you to do is push yourself too hard, especially not right away.

Luke: Well, seeing that I can't move, I don't really think we have to worry about that.

Burt: It's important to be consistent with your therapy, even if you don't feel you're making much progress at first.

Luke: Look, I'm not going to make any progress. You know that, I know that. Besides, I can't even start right now. I'm still too tired from the surgery.

Burt: Okay, I'll let you get a few hours rest. But I'll be back.

Lily: That was fast.

Burt: We need to work on Luke's attitude before we work on anything else. And I think I've got a secret weapon -- you.

Maddie: Noah, you care about Luke, don't you?

Noah: What kind of question is that?

Maddie: Do you want to help?

Noah: It's too late.

Maddie: No, it's not. Don't you think he wants to see you?

Noah: Why would he? My dad's the reason he's lying in a hospital bed right now.

Maddie: Okay, so you think that you're being punished is that it?

Noah: Maybe.

Maddie: You think Luke's being punished?

Noah: No! No, of course not.

Maddie: Pretending that you're straight isn't going to make Luke feel better. It's not going to make you feel better. Or me.

Noah: The last thing I want to do is hurt you any more.

Maddie: I know. I loved us together. But we're not meant to be. You know that.

Noah: I should go.

Maddie: Good night.

Lily: Remember when you were waiting for your kidney transplant and you were so sure you wouldn't get a donor? Look how that turned out.

Luke: Yeah, look how that turned out. Look Mom, I know you made so many sacrifices for me, and I thank you. But there's nothing you can do for me right now. There's nothing anyone can do for me right now.

Lily: There is something that you can do.

Luke: That physical therapy is not going to work.

Lily: How do you know that?

Luke: Because -- I mean, I knew -- I knew that things with me and Noah weren't going to work. I tried to keep convincing myself -- it's just so stupid.

Lily: Why? Why was it stupid?

Luke: Where is he now?

Jack: Dr. Evers, thanks for seeing us so late.

Dr. Evers: Hey, it's the least I could do.

Jack: May I come in with her for the tests?

Dr. Evers: Sure.

Carly: No, you know I prefer some privacy, if you don't mind.

Jack: No, that's fine. Okay, I'll wait out here.

Dr. Evers: Well, once the tests confirm your diagnosis --

Carly: Wait -- what do you mean confirm? You're not saying that there's still a chance that I'm dying?

Dr. Evers: Carly, I am convinced that you're not, okay? I just want to be 100% sure this time.

Carly: And then what?

Dr. Evers: Then we start you on a course of antibiotics. And before you know it, the abscess will be gone and you will be as good as new again.

Brad: Hey, listen -- Jack never would've married you if you already didn't have his heart.

Katie: Yeah, I have part of it. But like you said, after Carly's gone, I'll have even less. It's gonna be like she's -- a ghost haunting our marriage forever.

Brad: Forever? See, you're still thinking about staying married?

Katie: I'd like to. If he wasn't in love with another woman.

Brad: Did he tell you that?

Katie: Why else would he kiss her?

Brad: Because she's dying. She's alone. He feels sorry for her.

Katie: So do you, you didn't kiss her, did you?

Brad: No. It's not like he's jumping into bed with her.

Katie: It's not like he's jumping into bed with me.

Brad: I'll talk to him.

Katie: No, don't you dare. Thank you for today. I'll see you later.

Jack: How'd it go?

Dr. Evers: Fine.

Carly: Fine, yeah. So can we go?

Jack: Yeah, just a second. Dr. Evers, I just wanna -- I just want to say Carly's family -- we really appreciate everything you've done so far.

Dr. Evers: Well, that's very kind of you, considering.

Jack: So when do we see you again?

Dr. Evers: For what?

Jack: Chemo.

Carly: Jack --

Jack: Carly, I don't want to hear it. I don't want to hear it. There is no way I am letting you go through this alone.

Dr. Evers: Carly won't be going through chemo alone. She won't be going through chemo -- [Pager beeps] Sorry. You'll have to excuse me. I will call you with your test results.

Carly: Sure.

Jack: They still haven't nailed down what your course of treatment is going to be?

Carly: Not quite yet, no.

Jack: Carly, how many tests do they have to do? I mean, isn't it really important to start these drugs right away?

Carly: They're just being careful, Jack. You know, they don't want to treat me for the wrong thing.

Jack: I don't know if I trust this doctor. Are you sure he knows what he's doing?

Carly: I've gotten a lot of opinions.

Jack: He's a nice guy and everything. But his bedside manner seems a little weird, don't you think?

Carly: He's my doctor.

Jack: Okay, I'll back off. I'm sorry.

Carly: Thank you for caring.

Jack: Of course I care. [Cell phone rings] Hey Brad.

Brad: Are you with Carly?

Jack: I just drove her to her doctor's appointment, yeah.

Brad: Well, find somebody else to baby sit. I need you to meet me in Old Town. Now. Alone.

Realtor: Katie -- hi.

Katie: Oh, hi.

Realtor: I hope you don't mind me dropping in on you at work.

Katie: No, no. I was just -- just doing nothing. I'm sorry I haven't returned your phone calls.

Realtor: I understand. You're a newlywed. And if you've decided the house that I showed you isn't for you, that's fine. But if you want to make a formal offer, we'd better do it right now, or I'm afraid you're going to lose it.

Jack: What is your problem?

Brad: What do you think is wrong? When you called to talk to Katie, she wasn't in the middle of an interview. She was too upset to talk to you.

Jack: Okay, if you want me to come down there so you can lecture me, listen, I've got more important things to do right now.

Brad: You know what? You're right. You shouldn't be with me or Carly. You should be at home with your wife. But you know what? You don't even have a home.

Jack: That's nice, Buddy. I'm respecting her wishes. What about you? Does she know you're calling?

Brad: No.

Jack: Okay, then I don't think any of this is your business. Good bye.

Holden: Thank you.

Lily: Hi.

Holden: Hi. I was just getting Luke some food. He probably won't eat it. How'd the physical therapy go?

Lily: He doesn't think he can get better. The therapist said we need to get everyone he knows in there to encourage him.

Holden: Oh, so in other words, you want to call Noah. Lily, we talked about this. And Luke said he doesn't want us to do that.

Lily: He also didn't believe that Burtís exercises were going to help him. We are his parents. Sometimes we know what's better for him than he does.

Holden: Noah is the cause of Luke's problems, not the solution.

Lily: I thought I was the cause of Luke's problems.

Holden: I thought you didn't want to fight.

Lily: I donít.

Holden: I need to get this to Luke.

[Cell phone rings]

Holden: So I heard you were giving Ernie a hard time.

Luke: It's Burt.

Holden: Ah -- you were paying attention.

Luke: Dad, I'm always paying attention. Look, thanks for dinner, but I'm not hungry.

Holden: Luke, you want to feel like you're in control. I understand that.

Luke: What I want is an hour without somebody barging in here to take my temperature. Is that too much to ask?

Holden: Okay, fine. You want me to leave?

Luke: Yes.

Holden: All right. All right, I'll be back. I'll see you soon. Call me if you need anything.

Lucinda: Ah, there you are, Darling.

Holden: Thank you. If you're here to see Luke, he's resting.

Lucinda: Ah ha! That means you have a moment to talk to me.

Holden: What's this about? Lily? Of course, because it's always about Lily, isn't it? You know what, forget it.

Lily: Hi.

Dusty: I didn't think I'd see you here.

Lily: I'm just on my way back to the hospital.

Dusty: How's Luke doing?

Lily: Physically, the same. Emotionally -- you can imagine.

Dusty: I'm sorry I got into it with your husband.

Lily: Oh, like everything else, it's not your fault.

Dusty: Well, I'm going to be keeping my distance. Not that I don't care about Luke, I just think it's for the t& best.

Lily: No, no. It's not. Because I need your help.

Dusty: What can I do?

Lily: Could you find Noah and bring him to the hospital?

Dusty: What's going on?

Noah: This is all I have left of my father. The hotel manager gave it to me but I sure as hell don't want it. I should just give it to the lost and found.

Dusty: Did you go through it?

Noah: Why would I do that? I don't want any reminders. I just want to get out of here.

Dusty: Where to?

Noah: Anywhere. Just not Oakdale.

Dusty: Running away -- that's the coward's way out, isn't it?

Noah: You sound just like my dad. And he turned out to be the biggest coward of all.

Jack: I still think we should go to the University of Chicago. Or the Mayo Clinic.

Carly: Jack, I don't want to be away from the kids.

Jack: What if there's a treatment that you don't know about? I just don't like of this guy doing tests and more tests without starting you on chemo.

Carly: Here's the thing, Jack. I'm not going to have the chemo.

Jack: What do you mean, you're not going to have chemo? I thought you wanted every possible minute with the kids.

Carly: I do.

Jack: Listen, if these treatments make you feel worse, then you can always stop them.

Carly: Jack, I know that. Just let me explain, okay?

Jack: Carly, you are not going to go through this alone, you know that, right?

Carly: I do. I know that. Jack, listen --

Jack: Okay, maybe I'm being to selfish, but the thought of losing more time with you that we could have -- I'm not pushing you into doing anything you don't want to do, am I?

Carly: No.

Jack: Good.

Brad: Excuse me. Hi, I'm --

Nurse: Brad Snyder. Love your show.

Brad: Thank you. Thank you. Listen, I'm looking for my brother, Jack. He's with a patient named Carly Tenney.

Nurse: Oh, sorry. They left a little while ago.

Brad: Damn. Okay, wasted a trip.

Nurse: Not necessarily.

Brad: Really? So you like the show?

Dusty: You don't strike me as the kind of person who'd walk out on a friend.

Noah: You don't understand. I'm the last person he wants to see right now.

Dusty: How do you know that?

Noah: Because of my dad, what he did to him. My dad wanted him gone, and he tried to make it happen.

Dusty: Yeah, he did. Not you. What are you doing? You abandoned Luke. Does that make him feel better? No. Not according to his mother.

Noah: You talked to her?

Dusty: Yeah. Don't be a coward. Prove your father wrong. Don't run away.

Lucinda: Darling, you didn't really think you could outrun me?

Holden: I'm not running.

Lucinda: No, you're just afraid of what I might say to you because you're afraid that what I might say might be true.

Holden: All right, fine. Say it. Get it out.

Lucinda: You should see yourself. You look exhausted. You're exhausted. Physically and emotionally. So is Luke. And so is Lily. Come on. Why make things harder for the three of you?

Holden: Listen, I know you think that I'm being unfair to Lily.

Lucinda: She is his mother. Flesh and blood.

Holden: And I'm not. Youíre the last person I thought would play that card.

Lucinda: Don't you think that she would've if she could've, she would've done anything. Wouldn't she have?

Holden: She knew that Colonel Mayer might have murdered his wife. And for some reason, she didn't tell me about it. When she was at the police station, she didn't tell Margo about it. Why, Lucinda? You're a smart woman. Does that make any sense to you? Prayers at night, you'd bless everyone. The bees, the trees, the guy who ran the vegetable stand. But never yourself. I hope you can forgive me. Because I'm having a very, very hard time forgiving myself for what's happened to you.

Lucinda: You absolutely right. The whole thing is senseless, what happened to Luke. But surely, Lily has tried to explain the choices that she made. Why can't you try to put yourself in her shoes?

Holden: I'm trying. I am trying.

Lucinda: Well why don't you try a little bit harder? Why don't you go back to the hospital and find her and reach her?

Holden: How many times do you expect me to do that?

Lucinda: You love her, Darling. Just as many times as it takes.

Katie: Oh, I do love the house, and I don't want to lose it. It's just -- I'm not even sure if my husband and I are in the market for a house anymore.

Realtor: Well, I don't want to put any pressure on you. The way the market is right now, I'll have a buyer in seconds. I just thought -- a couple of newlyweds bunking in a hotel with three kids -- that's gotta be stressful. Hard to get on the right foot without your own space.

Katie: You know, I never thought of it that way. Maybe having a home will give us some sense that we really are a family, that it's --

Realtor: Permanent.

Katie: Yes.

Realtor: Well, I've got some other clients interested in the property, so whatever you plan to do you better figure it out today.

Jack: So you're going to have the chemo?

Carly: No.

Jack: Carly, I don't understand --

Carly: Jack -- Jack, listen. The doctors told me that I don't need it.

Jack: Why not?

Carly: He said that the new medication was controlling my symptoms. I'm feeling better. You can see that I'm feeling better.

Jack: Yeah, but --

Carly: The chemo was never going to be a cure.

Jack: But not having the chemo, what does that mean? How much time do we have left?

Lily: Hi.

Noah: I'm sorry --

Lily: Oh no, no, no, no. Don't -- shh. It's okay. All that matters is that you're here.

Noah: Is he --

Lily: He's sleeping, he's stable. It'll be very good for him for you to be here. So thank you for coming. I'll leave you two alone.

Dusty: I better get out of here before Holden gets back.

Lily: Thank you so much, Dusty. Thank you so much.

Dusty: Bye.

Lily: Bye.

Holden: What's he doing here?

Lily: He brought Noah.

Luke: What are you doing here?

Noah: I'm sorry. If you don't want me to be here, I'll --

Luke: No, no, no. Don't go.

Carly: I don't know. I can't answer that. I don't know how much time I have left.

Jack: But not having the chemo, does that mean you're going to be sacrificing -- what? Days, weeks, months?

Carly: No. No, I told you that I want as much time as I can get with you and the kids. I intend to enjoy every minute of it.

Jack: Me too.

Carly: I love what we have, Jack. I don't want it to end.

Katie: Thank you so much for coming. Really, you don't know how much I appreciate it.

Realtor: I take it you want to make an offer?

Katie: Yes. I'm going to talk to my husband, and then I'd like to come sign the papers. We really needed something to look forward to.

Brad: Here's my card. Give me a call, and I don't know, I'll show you around the set.

Nurse: Absolutely.

Brad: Bye. Doctor, hey.

Dr. Evers: Can I help you?

Brad: Yeah, Brad Snyder.

Dr. Evers: Yes, I remember.

Brad: I'm looking for my brother, and I guess I missed them. Did Carly start her chemo today?

Dr. Evers: Oh, she didn't tell you?

Brad: Tell me what?

Dr. Evers: Maybe she was waiting to share the news until she got the confirmation today.

Brad: Confirmation of what?

Dr. Evers: Well, Carly's not going to have chemo. What we thought was a lesion turned out to be something else. Something I'm very pleased to say is completely curable.

Jack: I knew it. I knew you wouldn't give up fighting.

Carly: Never.

Jack: What would you think of the idea of me moving in here?

Carly: What? You want to move in? Jack, nothing would make me happier than that --

Jack: I want to be here -- with you. Every minute that I can.

Next week on "As the World Turns."

Rosanna: A baby is exactly what she needs to shift her attention away from Paul.

Meg: I'm late.

Gwen: Yes! I'm sorry, you guys. Will and Alison just made a baby.

Will: That's great.

Jack: Because I've decided to stay with Carly until -- well, until the end.

Brad: Your doctor said straight up, you're not dying! So tell me, how come you're not bursting to tell the good news to everybody? Or would you like me to take a wild guess?

Katie: I want you to make love to me.
