Jack: What did you pack in this thing? Free weights?
Carly: You know the weather in Montana this time of year. Hot and cold, and everything in between. If it's too much for you, I'd be happy to carry it.
Jack: No, it's okay. We're practically there.
Carly: Wow, this is just how I pictured it.
Jack: You've got to hand it to Hannah, finding us this place on such short notice. And you know what? It kind of reminds me of the good old double-X ranch.
Carly: Yeah. I was just thinking the same thing.
Jack: Come on, let's get you inside and get you to bed.
Jack: You were particularly asleep in the car.
Carly: Well, I always fall asleep in the car. I didn't come all the way out here to spend the day in bed.
Jack: Carly, you got to take care of yourself.
Carly: I'm feeling great. Aren't I looking great?
Jack: Yeah, you look great.
Carly: Come on, Jack, I'm serious. You don't have to worry about me. I'm getting better all the time.
Carly: Hannah's been here. Coffee, everything.
Jack: Yeah, she says she'll check back later to see if we need anything else.
Carly: Oh, I think we have everything we need right here.
Katie: Is that my toothbrush?
Brad: Yeah. Well, I didn't have time to pack, remember? Would you rather me not brush my teeth? What, you've never shared a toothbrush before?
Katie: Not if I wasn't sleeping with someone.
Brad: I spent the night.
Katie: On the couch.
Brad: Maybe tonight, I'll take the bed.
Katie: Maybe tonight, you'll take your own bed.
Brad: I am sorry. I know I wasn't much help.
Katie: I didn't say that.
Brad: You didn't have to. The all-night crying marathon gave me a clue.
Katie: I shouldn't have asked you to stay. That's part of the reason I was crying. I mean, what the hell is wrong with me? I'm a married woman.
Brad: There is nothing wrong with you. My brother's the one that lost his mind.
Jack: It's supposed to get chilly later. I should probably build a fire.
Carly: Oh, darn.
Jack: I'm going to get some wood.
Carly: Oh, I'll help you.
Jack: You kidding me, right?
Carly: Well, you can't do everything.
Jack: You really do seem so much better.
Carly: Well, I am. This trip is working its magic already. Just like I knew it would. I guess time's a gift, isn't it? It's really give me a chance to put things in perspective.
Jack: Me, too.
Carly: I've had to think about a lot of things. Some hopes and dreams that will never come true. I really wanted to make a difference in the world.
Jack: Oh, Carly, you have --
Carly: Only because of the kids.
Jack: No, that's not true.
Carly: Thanks for being here with me. If I had to choose from all the things that I really wanted to do with the time I had left, this was right at the top of that list. I'm just wondering --
Carly: Well, now that we've been given this gift, what are we going to do with it?
Katie: As angry as I want to be at Jack, he would be here if I hadn't told him I needed space.
Brad: Fine. If it helps you not to be angry with Jack, I'll be angry for you.
Katie: It's not his fault.
Brad: You told him that you wanted to take a break, not to move in with Carly. Okay. All right. I'll get you another toothbrush. You can use that one on Snickers. His bunny fangs are little scary -- no offense, Snickers.
Katie: None taken.
Brad: Oh, and I checked with the hotel, unlike the diner, they accept bunny guests.
Brad: And I am sorry about yesterday, having to pretend that we were going to turn Snickers into bunny stew.
Katie: You have nothing to apologize for. In fact, I think I owe you an apology.
Brad: What for?
Katie: For never giving you enough credit. Nobody but you could make me laugh right now. Nobody but you would want to be in the same room with me right now.
Brad: It's my pleasure.
Katie: I'm going to go throw this away.
Carly: If Jack still thinks that I need him to be with me, then that leaves Katie all alone. As you pointed out she's heartbroken.
Carly: So, she'll need some comfort. And who better to supply that than you?
Katie: You okay?
Brad: Yeah, yeah. Absolutely. Yeah -- you know what? It's getting late. We got to get to work.
Katie: We do have to get to work. Be a good boy, Snickers.
Brad: Need a ride?
Jack: This gift, as you call it, I wish I could find a way to look at it that way.
Carly: I'm so sorry, Jack.
Jack: So am I. For a lot of things. We can't change the past, can't count on the future. So, yeah, I guess today is that gift. Let's enjoy the hell out of it.
Carly: I was hoping that you'd say that.
Jack: So if you don't want to sleep, what do we say we go for a little stroll?
Carly: I'd like that.
Jack: Yeah. If you get winded, you just tell me, we'll turn right around.
Carly: All right. Let me just changed first. You know, I'm remembering the first time we were in Montana together. I was shameless, parading around in that nightgown in front of you.
Carly: Tough guy. G-man. Macho man. If you ever got near a woman who was available you wouldn't even know what to do.
Jack: You don't think so?
Carly: I bet the ranch on it.
Jack: You don't know me.
Carly: All talk and no show.
Carly: You wouldn't have a clue. I'm getting warm just thinking about it.
Jack: You kind of look flushed.
Carly: I'm embarrassed, thinking about the way I acted. How could you stand me?
Jack: I couldn't. But I also couldn't live without you. I'll be outside when you're ready.
Sandra: And all of this candy, this is fat-free.
Katie: Yes, and I saw on a couple of the packages that they are made with 2% fruit juice, so does that make it health food?
Sandra: Hm-mmm, nope. Sorry. You know, even like caramel, that's 100% pure sugar cane. Ditto on the marshmallows. Ditto on the cotton candy. Sorry.
Brad: Well, we're keeping all you dentists in the audience in business.
Katie: What is with your oral fixation today?
Brad: Well, you're the one with the sweet tooth, Katie. How about a chocolate eyeball?
Katie: Oh, that seems like something more for a real man. Or beast.
Brad: Really? Okay.
Katie: So, we only have about a minute left, Sandra. Do you have any tips on getting rid of those mountains of candy we cumulate at Halloween any time before Thanksgiving?
Sandra: Yes, I have a great recipe for a dessert. It uses six different kinds of chocolate, so you'll love it. And I call it Sealed with a Kiss.
Katie: Oh, that sounds good.
Brad: You can find the recipe on our website.
Sandra: Now it's really important that you make your presentation just as delicious as what you serve. So, pay attention to your tablescape, you know, make sure it's nice and pretty.
Katie: Well, thank you so much. That's all about the time we have right now. So, I'd like to thank Sandra Lee for being here. And giving us so many fantastic Halloween tips.
Sandra: Well, it wasn't hard work, but I have to remind you. On "Semi-homemade", we always say, keep it simple. Keep it sweet. Keep it smart. And always keep it semi-homemade.
Brad: All right, everybody, happy Halloween and please be safe out there.
P.A.: And it's a wrap.
Katie: Thank you so much. That was so fun.
Sandra: Thank you so much. Are you all right?
Brad: Oh, yes. Thank you. You did great.
Sandra: No, I'm staying for that workout segment later on.
Brad: Well, obviously, you definitely earned it. We'll see what we can do.
Katie: Not that you need it.
Brad: Licorice whip?
Katie: No. Thank you. I'm more of a chocolate girl.
Brad: Well, we have got chocolate. Lots of it.
Katie: I'm not really hungry.
Brad: Come on. You haven't eaten much.
Katie: Chocolate for breakfast? Not exactly healthy. I'm going to go change out of this adorable little get-up.
P.A.: Katie, you have a call on line five.
Katie: Oh, thanks. Hello? Oh, yeah, yeah. No, that's fine. Okay. Thank you for getting back to me.
Jack: You had that horse eating out of your hand.
Carly: That's what horse do.
Jack: You know what I mean.
Carly: He likes carrots.
Jack: He likes you.
Carly: I wish we could go for a ride.
Jack: Not in your condition. But I know something else we could do together. Do you think the owner would mind if we borrowed her for an hour or two?
Carly: I think people from Montana tend to be pretty generous.
Jack: So should we take her out?
Brad: That wasn't Jack on the phone?
Katie: No, costume shop.
Brad: Well, what are you doing, research for next year's Halloween show?
Katie: No, I ordered a costume for Sage.
Brad: Katie, her mom -- she's a designer.
Katie: Yeah, I know. But I'm a TV. star. So, I thought I would pull some strings and have something made that she was really wanting. I was really looking forward to going trick-or-treating with the kids -- now I guess I will just have to wait.
Brad: Well, you're still going to take it to her, aren't you?
Katie: No, what if Carly did make her something? I don't want to ruin her Halloween.
Brad: You don't want to ruin Sage's either. I mean, come on. You don't want to hurt her feelings.
Brad: Do you want me to take it to her?
Katie: No, thanks. I really want to see the look on Sage's face.
Brad: And Jackís.
Katie: I miss him, Brad. I thought that sending him away would make things easier, but it's made things ten times harder. I want to go see my husband. Don't I have the right to go see my husband?
Carly: How can there be another boat with the exact same name as that one you restored?
Jack: I guess it's just a coincidence.
Carly: I don't believe in coincidences, Jack. I believe in fate. I could stay here for the rest of my life.
Jack: Just us and the stars and the moon and the clouds. And modern technology jerking us back
Carly: I'm sorry. I set this before I left so it wouldn't gone too long.
Jack: Well, so much for the carefree life on the high seas.
Carly: Yeah. I should go.
Jack: Five more minutes.
Carly: I -- I can't. Five more minutes.
Jack: No, no, we should go.
Jack: Oh, wait. Here.
Carly: A compass? Why?
Jack: So you can find your way back to me when the time is right.
Carly: I'll be here.
Jack: I'll be waiting.
Carly: And here we are again. Another stolen moment.
Jack: I always felt guilty about what I said to you that day. It was wrong for me to want us to be together when you weren't free.
Carly: You weren't wrong, Jack. I might've been married to someone else, but we both know that my heart has always belonged to you.
Will: Hey! Hey.
Will: A little early for Halloween, isn't it?
Brad: Well, it hear it's how you get all the best candy.
Will: You guys want to come in?
Katie: Yeah, I just have something for Sage.
Will: You want to give it to her yourself?
Katie: Sure, I just don't want to interrupt anything.
Will: No, you're not interrupting. We're apparently boring. Hey, Sage! Katie's got a surprise for you.
Katie: Hi, Gwen.
Sage: Hi Katie! Nice costume, Uncle Brad.
Brad: What, what? Aww, Man! How did you know it was me? You are way too smart! You know what, Katie's got something for you.
Sage: Oh my gosh! It's awesome! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Katie: Oh, you're welcome.
Sage: I love it.
Brad: You think she couldn't tell?
Katie: I'm so glad you love it.
Sage: Can I try it on right now?
Gwen: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go ahead.
Katie: So, are Jack and Carly at a doctor's appointment, or something?
Will: Uh, Jack didn't tell you?
Jack: You warm enough?
Carly: Mmm. The breeze feels nice.
Jack: Sure does.
Carly: Hey. Like I said before, you have stop working so hard. Come on, relax.
Jack: You are not rowing the boat.
Carly: Well, can't we just drift for a while? There's no place we have to be, but here.
Jack: Good point.
Carly: It'd be a good time for me to get in that nap you wanted me to take.
Jack: I'm a little sleepy myself.
Carly: Put your head down.
Katie: Montana? They went to Montana together?
Gwen: Yeah. I'm sorry you had to find out this way.
Will: I just figured Jack would've told you.
Brad: You know, he left a message at the, at the studio. He had to. Oh, we have a new P.A. she's really a sweetie, but not bright.
Katie: Oh, you look beautiful.
Sage: I don't want to look beautiful, I want to look scary, like Uncle Brad.
Brad: Oh, you gotta work on your scary face! Arrrr! Come on, let's see it. Rrrr!
Katie: That's good! You got it. Well, so it fits and everything?
Sage: It's perfect.
Katie: All right. Well, we'll see you soon.
Sage: You're leaving already?
Katie: Yeah, we'll see you.
Brad: I bet that Jack left a message at the studio.
Katie: Come on, Brad, we both know he didnít. Jack took Carly to Montana, just the two of them, and he couldn't even be bothered to tell me.
[Carly dreaming that she and Jack made love]
Carly: Jack. Are you awake?
Carly: Open your eyes. I have something to tell you. I'm not dying. I was misdiagnosed. I'm going to live for a very long time.
Jack: Are you sure? Do you have any idea how hard I've prayed? I feel like I've been given my life back.
Carly: What do you mean?
Jack: You said this experience was a gift. I didn't know what you meant. But now, I understand. It's all so clear to me, now. I've had to be honest with myself. I never stopped loving you. And I never will.
Carly: But you're married to Katie.
Jack: It was a mistake. You're the only woman for me. You're the only wife I ever wanted. I'll never leave you again. Ever.
Jack: I didn't know there were so many wildflowers out this time of year. I remembered you liked these. Right? What were they called, again? Carly? Carly?
Carly: They're forget-me-nots, Jack.
Jack: Are you okay?
Carly: I love you, Jack.
Jack: No, no. Don't leave me, please? Please?
Carly: I'll always be with you. Always.
Jack: No, Carly. Carly. Carly. No, Carly -- no. No! Carly! Carly, please? Carly! Carly, no! No.
Carly: Jack. Jack. Hey. It's okay. You were just having a bad dream.
Jack: I dreamt you were gone.
Carly: I'm so sorry. But I'm not going anywhere. I'm right here with you.
Jack: I'm glad. Where are we? Okay, we can't be too far from where we found the boat. I remember passing the thicketed trees.
Carly: Oh. No, I don't think so. I think it was the other way.
Carly: Yeah. Yeah, but you're the one with all the survival training.
Jack: And you lived here half your life. Okay. You know what -- I'm just going to pick a direction, and start walking. I'm bound to find something I recognize.
Carly: Well, what about me?
Jack: Just stay here, and I'll come back for you. I'm sorry. I'm sorry I got us lost.
Carly: You didn't. And we're going find our way together.
Brad: So, Jack took Carly to Montana. He probably just wanted her to have some fresh, healthy mountain air.
Katie: If Jack wanted to take Carly someplace healthy, he could've taken her to Al's diner for a Swedish power shake. Thank you.
Brad: You're going to make yourself sick.
Katie: I'm already sick. Sick that Carly's dying, and those kids are going to be without a mother. And I'm sick of myself, because right now I feel like murdering a woman who's already on her deathbed.
Carly: Weren't we just here?
Jack: Ah, it does look familiar. Oh. I wish it weren't almost noon. Sun's practically straight overhead. Why wasn't I paying more attention?
Carly: I'm the one who said we should drift.
Jack: Yeah, I could've said no. I'm the one looking out for you, right?
Carly: It's not your job anymore, Jack.
Jack: It's the only reason I'm here.
Carly: Don't look at me like that.
Jack: If anything ever happened to you --
Carly: Nothing's going to happen to me.
Jack: Carly, we're lost.
Carly: How many times have we been lost before, Jack? And we've always found our way, haven't we? Come on.
Katie: What are you doing?
Brad: Cutting you off. You don't need to drink.
Katie: I need Jack, but he's not here. What would you do?
Brad: Get drunk.
Brad: But you're not me, okay? You're better than I am.
Katie: No I'm not.
Brad: Look, look. I know you're upset that Jack and Carly went away together, but they're going to be back soon. And then --
Katie: And then, what? You know, it's not even that they went away together, it's where they went. They went to Montana, Brad, where it all started for them. It's their special place.
Brad: It's Carly's special place. It's her home.
Katie: Yeah, I'm sure that's what she told Jack. Maybe she said she wanted to see it one last time. But I know, and I'm sure he knows. They only went there for one reason.
Katie: To reconnect. To find their way back to a time and place, where they thought that they would live happily ever after.
Carly: I wish I had packed my compass with me.
Jack: You're freezing, Carly.
Carly: You're the one without a jacket. Hey, Jack.
Carly: As much as I said I knew that we'd find our way, uh, I'm getting kind of scared, now.
Jack: Oh, you are like ice.
Jack: Is that better?
Carly: Yeah. It's better.
Jack: Okay, we just gotta relax, and put our heads together --
Jack: Like we did, when we found -- when we found J.J. in Idaho.
Jack: And we're downstream from where we started, because I remember passing that barn far in the distance there, you see?
Carly: I don't remember a barn.
Jack: You were already asleep. That barn. Right there, you see it?
Carly: Yeah. That's the Peter's place, Jack. I know where we are. I even know how to get home from here.
Jack: Lead the way.
Carly: This is it, right? This is where we found the boat.
Jack: Way to go.
Carly: And there's the cabin.
Jack: Yeah. Looks like Hannah started a fire for us. I see smoke coming out of the chimney.
Carly: I knew I loved that woman.
Jack: Come on. Let's go get you warm.
Carly: Uh, thank you.
Jack: Yeah, you're still freezing. I've got to do something to warm you up.
Carly: You're done enough.
Jack: Actually, I've got a really good idea. [Jack pours Carly a bath] Okay. I think we're ready.
[Carly turns around and starts unbuttoning her blouse]
Jack: Let me help you. Please?
Carly: Thank you.
Jack: Um. You all set?
Jack: I'll give you some privacy.
Carly: Where are you going?
Jack: I'll just be outside.
Carly: Why -- why are you here? I'm not done.
Jack: Yeah, I know. I forgot -- I forgot my ice cream. Mmm. Oh, that's good.
Carly: What flavor is that?
Jack: It's your favorite.
Carly: It's rocky road?
Jack: Mm-hmm. You wouldn't believe how far I had to go to get this. Do you want some?
Carly: I'll have a taste.
Jack: How's that?
Carly: Almost heaven.
Katie: Okay, you delivered me to my door. Your job is done. Thank you very much.
Katie: Why not? I can't have sex, I might as well have chocolate.
Brad: You know that jack and Carly are not having sex.
Katie: I don't know that. And you know, yes, I told jack that I needed space. Do you know why I told him I needed space?
Brad: Because you needed space.
Katie: No. Because I wanted him to talk me out of it. I wanted him to tell me that there's no way in hell he's going to leave his new bride for his ex-wife, no matter what. That's exactly what he did. And now he's off in Montana, walking down memory lane with Carly. And I'm sitting here by myself eating chocolate.
Brad: Well, you're not by yourself.
Katie: Oh, yeah. I'm sorry, I'm drunk. I'm not alone. Thank you for that.
Brad: Cold comfort, I know.
Katie: Oh, I wish he wasn't your brother.
Katie: Because I'm so mad at him.
Brad: I'm mad, too. I hate to see what this is doing to you.
Katie: You told me all along, didn't you? Why didn't I listen?
Brad: Because you're a big dummy --
Katie: No. Jack and I should have never gotten together in the first place. Because his love for Carly never died. And it never will, even when she's gone. Especially when she's gone.
Jack: Oh, hey, let me help you.
Carly: Thanks. Jack? Are you okay?
Jack: This isn't fair.
Jack: When you left me and you took off with Simon. I tried to convince myself that the kids and I were better off without you. That I could never forgive you. I actually told myself that I hoped you stayed gone.
Carly: I don't blame you.
Jack: Yeah, well, I do. Because now you're really going to leave -- for good. I don't want you to leave.
Carly: I'm here now.
Jack: Good night. Get some rest.
Katie: Why didn't I listen to you?
Brad: That's because nobody listens to me. I'm used to it.
Katie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I always treated you like the second best brother. Because you know, when I look back, it was always you that was there for me.
Brad: I'm used to that, too.
Katie: Well, that's wrong.
Brad: There's a lot of things that are wrong right now. And it's sure as hell wrong that you're always under Carly's shadow. I always thought that my brother was the smart one. But he is an idiot for treating you like this.
Katie: Thanks. That's really sweet.
Brad: You're going to go into sugar shock.
Brad: Katie, what are you doing?
Katie: I have a horrible track record with marriage. Horrible.
Brad: That makes both of us.
Katie: I spent a lot of time trying to become a better person for Jack.
Brad: Well, that's really funny, because I've spent some time trying to be a better person for you.
Katie: You don't need to be better. You just have to be you.
Brad: I think this is the chocolate talking.
Katie: No. Well, chocolate helps, but what I know what I really want?
Brad: More than chocolate?
Katie: Yeah. I want you to make love to me. Right now.
Announcer: On the next "As the World Turns."
Katie: What you think -- this trip to Montana, you think that my marriage is really over?
Carly: We've found each other again.
Jack: Too late.
Rosanna: That's the only reason that I'm talking to you at all, is because we share a mutual interest in keeping Paul and Meg apart.
Meg: I'm in love with you, Paul. For a day.
