Will: Do you want milk or lemon in your tea?

Gwen: Neither.

Will: You want milk. Expectant mothers need all the milk they can get.

Gwen: You know, at the moment, I'm really not much than an incubator.

Alison: Oh, look at these maternity clothes. Aren't they so cute?

Gwen: It's adorable.

Will: Here, this is herbal. So, you'll be able to fall asleep tonight.

Alison: Is there anything else you need?

Gwen: Yes, you know, actually there is --

Will: I'll get it for you --

Gwen: No, no, no, please stay seated. This is something I need to do on my own. There you go. That's better.

Sofie: But you didn't even look at my resume before you turned me down.

Manager: I didn't have to. I looked at you.

Sofie: I don't think it's legal to turn me down because I'm pregnant.

Manager: Okay. Not enough experience. Have a nice baby.

Iris: It's a cold world, isn't it?

Sofie: You scared me.

Iris: Oh, you don't need to be scared of me, Sweetie. I could be the answer to your prayers.

Vienna: Now I know why the waitresses were always so cranky here.

Henry: You don't have to wear stilettos, you know.

Vienna: Oh, wonderful. Not only do I work in a diner, but I get to wear orthopedic shoes. What’s next? A hair net? Or a uniform made out of polyester?

Henry: Hey, I've got an idea. How about when we get home, I give you a nice foot massage.

Vienna: Ooh, but I love my life. And I love my job.

Henry: You've got the cutest mood swings in the whole wide world, you know that?

Vienna: Oh, Madeline!

Henry: Hey!

Vienna: Where are you going?

Maddie: Sorry, I didn't want to intrude.

Henry: Please.

Vienna: Come on, sit down and talk to us. We haven't seen you in ages.

Maddie: If by ages you mean since this afternoon.

Henry: We were just about to have something to eat.

Maddie: No, you weren't --

Vienna: Come on, talk to us and tell us everything that has happened since lunch.

Maddie: Well, nothing's happened. It's just -- I think it's time I finally make a decision.

Holden: Okay, so what do you want? Milk, soda --

Luke: Gee, Dad. Are you trying to change the subject?

Holden: Soda.

Luke: You and Mom. And specifically, how you're blowing it with her.

Holden: All right. You know what? Let's get one thing clear. I am the dad. I can butt into your life and give advice. But it is not a two-way street.

Luke: You know, I used to think that stuff like that was funny. But right now, I don't have much of a sense of humor.

Holden: Sorry.

Luke: Look, don't we all have so much more to worry about without you blaming her for what happened to me?

Lucinda: Hey, it's nice to hear that at least one other member of this family isn't a complete idiot.

Dusty: I think your mom's right. I'm not sure you should be here.

Lily: I am.

Holden: You know what, Lucinda? It's been kind of a bad day. And I don't need you or your attitude, okay?

Lucinda: My attitude? I just --

Holden: Love to shoot off at the mouth.

Lucinda: You're right. I do. Ah, Darling, do you -- hi, there -- do you know how to maneuver this thing yet?

Luke: No, Grandma, I don't. I'm a complete idiot --

Lucinda: Because I'd like to have a moment alone with --

Luke: I'm a complete idiot -- thank you. Thank you for helping me.

Lucinda: I won't lose my attitude! Careful. All right. Now, I'm going to tell you God's honest truth.

Holden: I can't wait.

Lucinda: I can't think of a man who is better equipped than you to help Luke through all this rough time. You are a great father.

Holden: You know what? If you're setting me up for one of your sucker punches, you can forget it.

Lucinda: Can we please be on the same side? Please? And you and Lily, you have to do it together. As much for your sake as for hers.

Holden: You know what? Thanks for weighing in.

Lucinda: You think I don't know how you feel? I'd like to throttle her myself. But, yet again, once more, you're going to have to be the grown-up here. And just push past it all.

Holden: You know what? There's a lot of all these days. The secrets. The lies. The new best friend with all the answers.

Lucinda: Would it make it easier for you if I could tell you that you don't have to worry about Dusty anymore.

Dusty: You're sure you should be here. Well, that makes one of us.

Lily: Please don't be mad at me, too.

Dusty: I'm not mad. I'm worried you're here with me. You're lying to your husband. I mean, isn't that what got you into trouble in the first place?

Lily: Dusty. Please. Just tonight. Help me.

Dusty: What do you want me to do?

Holden: You know, it's not Dusty I'm worried about. It's Lily.

Lucinda: Oh, come on, Darling. We both know what we're talking about. Lily has developed a dependency on him and it's causing problems.

Holden: Dependency. That's a tame word for it.

Lily: Well, it's just a word. Darling, Luke is here in a wheelchair. And he's not talking about his physical therapist. No, he's talking about his parents' marriage. Now, forget about words. Forget about semantics.

Holden: Did she say that she wouldn't see him anymore?

Lucinda: Well, I spoke to him. And he sees that he must steer clear of her.

Holden: Man, this day, just my wife's dependency needs to keep his distance.

Lucinda: Honey, enough, enough --

Holden: You know what, earlier today, I ran into Lily. I bumped into her at the diner. She was upset. She told me that she thought I was punishing her. She told that she was worried about the kids. What she didn't tell me was that she was there with Dusty. When I left, or after she thought I left, guess whose time it was.

Lucinda: Well, he knows this cannot go on!

Holden: Yeah, well, we keep finding ourselves at the same place. He knows that. But the question is, does Lily?

Lily: Can I have a drink?

Dusty: You don't want to drink my scotch. You drink that stuff, you'll end up in the trunk of a car.

Lily: I don't want scotch. What do I want though? Yes, this is Lily Snyder. I'm in Mr. Donovan's room right now. Can you send up that nice bottle of Bordeaux that we just got in? Thank you.

Dusty: I'm not sure that was a good idea.

Lily: I'm going to tell you what happened tonight, that's all. Have a drink, so --

Dusty: You went to the farm.

Lily: Yeah, and I found out that Holden's trying to turn Luke against me.

Dusty: Why do you think that?

Lily: Because he told Luke that I knew that Winston Mayer was dangerous. So, in effect, he made everything my fault.

Lucinda: You know, I haven't always been really fair to you over the years.

Holden: No, really?

Lucinda: I'm not talking now as me, you know, getting what I want. I'm -- I'm concerned about Lily.

Holden: I am, too.

Lucinda: Like I was wondering, when she came out of that coma -- where had she been? What had happened to her? We don't know. Is she the same person? I mean, she -- when you think about all the times, what she's gone through to be with you, she wouldn't hurt you like this, if she was really herself.

Holden: Lucinda, I've tried and tried.

Lucinda: I know. I've seen it. And I think you're such a strong man, that you're probably going to try again.

Holden: After all these years, don't you think I'm onto you by now?

Lily: You're not going to let me drink alone? Are you?

Dusty: Twist my arm.

Lily: Good. To old friends.

Dusty: I don't think Holden's going to appreciate this --

Lily: Can we not talk about Holden? For about 20 minutes. I'm just trying to regroup. Trying to calm down enough to figure out how to get back into my son's life.

Dusty: I don't think you're out of your son's life at all.

Lily: Luke said he doesn't blame me. But how could he not? I blame myself.

Dusty: Lily --

Lily: You know what? I'm really happy that I'm here. Because I know if I make a mistake, you'll just let it go. You know, when I left the farm, I mean, Holden wanted me to, but that's not why I left. I was so afraid that I would say something wrong. And upset Luke even more.

Dusty: I'm sorry I ever got you involved in helping me.

Lily: You know, I was thinking about that. I can not remember the last time Holden asked me to help him.

Luke: Hey, Dad, look who showed up.

Holden: Oh, hey, how you doing?

Noah: I'm good. I hope its okay. I didn't call.

Holden: Planning on hanging around for a while?

Noah: Well, I, um --

Holden: No, that's okay, that's all right. I have some stuff that I need to do, so if you could hand out with Luke for a while, that would be great. His therapist is going to show up a little bit later.

Noah: Great. Yeah. No problem.

Luke: Take your time Dad.

Noah: So, what was that all about?

Luke: Oh, parents, you know.

Noah: Luke. It's okay. It's actually good for me to watch your parents, shows me what normal looks like.

Luke: How are you doing?

Noah: Shouldn't I be asking you that?

Luke: Well, it's been a weird day, but about five minutes ago, it started looking up.

Henry: What's up?

Maddie: I called Wesleyan today. And I spoke to the registrar.

Henry: And?

Maddie: And they said that I can transfer mid-semester. And I can still keep my scholarship.

Henry: What? That's great!

Maddie: Yeah.

Vienna: We are both so proud of you.

Maddie: Yeah, I just -- I have to make a really quick decision. And so it's either now, or a year from now.

Henry: Sheesh, that's pressure.

Maddie: Yeah. Want to know what I decided? I decided that I'm really bad about deciding. I dated Noah because Casey dumped me. And then I didn't go to Wesleyan because Noah asked me not to. And than when I found out that Noah was gay, now I'm saying that I want to go to Wesleyan -- why?

Henry: Because it's a great school, and has everything you're looking for.

Maddie: Yeah, or maybe I'm just really embarrassed, and I want to run away. I don't know why I do the things I do.

Vienna: Good! I mean that shows that you're young, and that's wonderful. I mean, like, you're young in age, but you have a young heart. And Wesleyan is an adventure. And, we're going to miss you like hell.

Henry: Like hell.

Maddie: One thing, I know for sure. If I do go to Wesleyan?

Henry: Yeah?

Maddie: Nobody is going to have as much fun as I will at parents' weekend.

Will: So I guess we over did it a little with the TLC there?

Gwen: No, it's just that I don't want, you know, having a baby to turn me into some little wussy, you know, girl.

Will: Oh, I don't think that's going to happen.

Gwen: You know what? I'm feeling a little claustrophobic. I just need to go for a walk.

Will: Are you sure?

Gwen: Yeah.

Will: I didn't say anything. I don't want to be overprotective. But --

Gwen: No, I love that about you. I mean, it drives me crazy, but I love it. And I won't be gone too long, I won't overdo it. I promise.

Will: Well, it's a good thing you're here.

Alison: Yeah?

Will: Yeah, you can keep me from following her.

Alison: You know what Will? You're going to make a great dad. But I do not envy Gwen for the next nine months.

Sofie: If you are the answer to my prayers, then I am really in trouble.

Iris: But you are in trouble. I mean, you're pregnant, and you got no man. You got no money. You go no --

Sofie: Yeah, yeah, thanks -- thanks for reminding me.

Iris: Sofie, relax. You need help, I can help you.

Sofie: Unless you're hiring, I don't see how you can help me.

Iris: Simple. You need money, I got tons of it.

Sofie: Yeah, with no strings attached, right?

Iris: No! No, no, absolutely no strings attached. Just one condition.

Sofie: Yeah -- right, okay.

Iris: Look, I'll give you all the money that you need to have that little baby, and to get back on your feet. The only thing you have to do is just leave Oakdale.

Sofie: You are really something, aren't you? Does it mean anything, anything at all to you, that this is your grandchild?

Iris: Well, we only have your word for it, right?

Sofie: Yeah, well, I'm beginning to understand Cole a little better more now.

Iris: You can act as superior as you like, but just take it somewhere else, okay?

Sofie: You can't even stand for me to be in the same town as you?

Iris: I want my son home. And if you're here, he's not going to come home. So, it's really a simple exercise in logic, isn't it?

Sofie: Right.

Iris: But, listen, we're just totally getting off the main point here, which is that you're up against it. Right? You don't have any negotiating chips. So, look, Sweetheart, this should about cover your relocation expenses.

Sofie: Yeah, I don't want it.

Iris: Well, you know, as a mother there are a lot of things you don't want to. I know that better than anyone -- believe me.

Gwen: Hey, Mom. Why don't you leave her alone?

Iris: Oh, Sweetie, this is just a private little moment with Sofie and me.

Gwen: Are you okay?

Iris: Is she okay? She's better than okay! She's going to start a new life, just as soon as she leaves Oakdale.

Vienna: Are you testing me again? Because that's an easy one. That's a root beer float.

Henry: No --

Vienna: What? Don't try to fool me, Henry, because I have learned every single name of all the traditional American drinks.

Henry: Taste.

Vienna: That's not root beer.

Henry: No, it's not. It's cola. And you stick a little vanilla in there and you got yourself a black cow.

Vienna: A black cow -- and you make fun of the way I talk?

Henry: Have some more.

Vienna: Delicious.

Henry: Yeah it is. I made one of these for Maddie’s fifth birthday. She was in awe. She said I rocked!

Vienna: She still thinks that.

Henry: Then why is she leaving me?

Vienna: She has to spread her wings! We knew this would happen sometime.

Henry: Yeah, I knew that, but I was getting used to having her around.

Vienna: I know. It feels like I'm losing a sister too.

Henry: She's the only real family I've got left here in Oakdale. The only reasonably sane family I have here. What am I -- I'm sorry, what am I going on about, your family is like, what 4,000 miles away?

Vienna: You know, if you want more relatives around, there's something we can do about that?

Henry: Oh, yeah? What's that?

Vienna: Starting a family of our own.

Noah: Well, he seemed nice.

Luke: Yeah --

Noah: Certainly gave you a lot of exercises.

Luke: Uh-huh.

Noah: You don't want to talk about it, do you?

Luke: No, it's just -- this physical therapy --

Noah: What?

Luke: It scares me.

Noah: What? You don't think you're going to be able to do it?

Luke: No, it's just that if I try, and I can't, well then I feel like this is how it's going to be from now on.

Noah: Could I help? I mean, maybe if we do it together, it'll be more like going to the gym than, you know, some big deal.

Luke: Maybe.

Noah: Luke, look, I get it. I'm sorry, I'm probably the last person you want to see and now I'm talking about the gym --

Luke: No, no, Noah -- I told you. I want you her.

Noah: You know what I keep thinking about?

Luke: What?

Noah: That five minutes before, my dad did this to you, was the happiest time of my life.

Luke: Me too.

Noah: I want that back.

Luke: Me too.

Holden: Hey, Frank, I'm looking for Lily, she's not in her office.

Bartender: Oh, she just called from Mr. Donovan's room -- hey, I didn't realize it was you, Mr. Snyder.

Dusty: Did you eat tonight?

Lily: Bumping into Holden at the diner made me lose my appetite a little bit.

Dusty: Why don't we get some fresh air, and get you something to eat.

Lily: Oh, Mr. Donovan, I know what you're trying to do. You're trying to cut me off just as I'm starting to relax.

Dusty: You don't need this --

Lily: Oh!

Dusty: Sorry. Hey, sorry about that.

Lily: I'm okay. Sorry? You have nothing to be sorry about! Nothing is your fault. Everything is my fault! Remember?

Dusty: Hey, here's a robe, why don't you rejuvenate yourself by taking a shower. You cannot go home like this.

Lily: Home? I don't have a home anymore.

Holden: Why was she calling you?

Bartender: She just ordered a bottle of wine. [Phone ringing] Lounge, Frank speaking.

Dusty: Frank, it's Dusty. Send up some coffee right away.

Bartender: Sure, but --

Lily: I don't feel that good.

Dusty: All right, well, I'll get you something to wear, and I'll drive you home.

Lily: I'm just a little dizzy --

Dusty: Lil -- I ordered some coffee for you. It's time to sit up.

Lily: I'm tired. Just a few minutes.

Dusty: Hey, you can't go to sleep. Not here. Come on in.

Maddie: I'm sorry. I should have called.

Luke: No, no, no, it's okay.

Noah: How's it going?

Luke: Watch your feet.

Maddie: I brought some DVDs over for you, in case, you know, you're bored or whatever.

Luke: Great. Thank you.

Maddie: Also, I wanted to tell you something. You too, Noah.

Noah: Yeah?

Maddie: I'm thinking about transferring to Wesleyan. They still have a place for me.

Noah: That's, um -- that's great.

Maddie: You sound thrilled.

Noah: I sound like somebody who ruined your life. I mean, if it wasn't for me, you'd be there already.

Maddie: Well, I am. I think I can get right back on track. But I will miss you if I go.

Luke: No, you know what? I can wheel myself all the way out to the east coast.

Maddie: Thank you. I'd love that. That'd be great. That would be great. All right, I'm off --

Luke: Why? You just got here.

Maddie: I have a paper to finish. But I will let you know what I decide, one way or another, okay?

Luke: Cool.

Maddie: Noah. Will you to walk me out to my car?

Noah: Sure.

Maddie: Oh, and that DVD on top, if you don't like it, we're no longer friends.

Luke: Okay.

Maddie: Bye, Luke.

Luke: Bye, Maddie.

Noah: Maddie, I think it's really great.

Maddie: Noah, listen. Right now, I think that Luke needs people in his life that he can count on.

Noah: I know that.

Maddie: Do you?

[Noah walks back into the house]

Luke: So, what was that about?

Will: She's got a point. Gwen's never really been a tea and cookies kind of girl.

Alison: I don't think it was the cookies that got her.

Will: No, it was me. It was me.

Alison: It was both of us. I mean, I think she felt like she was being watched. And well, that's probably because she --

Will: Because we were watching her. She -- she just wants this so bad. And, so I go there, too. And I want it for her. And then I hover.

Alison: I was just as bad as I was watching her like -- are you pregnant now? Or how about now?

Will: No wonder she ran away.

Alison: Yeah, but you know what was one of the reasons why I said I'd do this? Do you remember that party? The one you guys had the -- oh, sorry.

Will: No, it's okay. The baby shower.

Alison: Yeah. Well, right before that I ran into you and Sage in Old Town. And you were so great with her. And I remember thinking, "Wow, Will and Gwen are going to be amazing parents."

Will: Thanks to you. Hey, can I ask you a favor.

Alison: Sure.

Will: Well, I should say another favor. And I promise this time no medical procedures are involved.

Alison: Good.

Gwen: Did you just offer Sofie money to leave town?

Iris: So now I'm in trouble for trying to help.

Gwen: You weren't trying to help. You were trying to get rid of her.

Iris: You know what? When you're expecting a little bundle of joy and you don't got any money, you don't got a man, you don't got a place to live, you don't got a job, well, you don't got a lot out of options. You know what I'm saying? So, you take whatever's offered.

Gwen: It doesn't have to be like that.

Iris: Oh, yes, um, do you have any offers?

Sofie: No.

Iris: No. So, why don't you keep this -- all right. And you know what Sweetheart? Why don't write me from your new address. I'll send you some more money, okay? At least I'm doing more than anyone else is.

Gwen: Who the hell do you think you are?

Iris: I'm someone who's raised two kids, and knows what she's talking about. All right? Sometimes a mommy has to do things she doesn't want to. She has to do a lot of things she doesn't --

Gwen: So why would she even have kids in the first place?

Sofie: It's okay. This is not your fight. This is mine, and you know, I need the money. And there's nothing for me here. So, thank you for everything. And I'll write you.

Iris: Bye, bye.

Gwen: I can't believe you just paid to send away your own grandchild.

Henry: This cleanser isn't going to cut it. I'm going to have to get something more industrial strength.

Vienna: No, no, you're not you're going to tell me what I said that scared you so much that you go into hide in the supply closet.

Henry: I -- just this whole making a family thing. It just sort of came out of left field.

Vienna: What?

Henry: So, you think we should be married first? I -- look, I can barely take care of me and you, and this pleasure palace that we have I can't be responsible for anything else.

Vienna: Are you sure that's all?

Henry: Yeah, what else could it be?

Vienna: I don't know, maybe -- maybe you don't think I will be a good mother.

Henry: Honey, you would put all other mothers to shame. Those Swedish cookies in the lunchbox -- the kid would be the most popular one in school. I love you. I love you, and I would be so blessed to have a child with you -- one day, just not this very second.

Vienna: Good answer.

Henry: Thank God!

Vienna: I'm going to go into the kitchen, and make Madeleine a farewell cake.

Henry: But she hasn't said that she's leaving yet?

Vienna: Yes, she has.

[Knocking on door]

Dusty: Here's we go. Hey. Here's to coffee. It's not what you think.

Holden: You don't know what I think.

Gwen: So you want Sofie to be alone when she has her baby?

Iris: No, I just don't want her here.

Gwen: You know, I'm sure that after you gave birth you, I don't know, slithered off, but most women, at least women who plan on taking care of their kids, they like to have people around, you know, people to share their joy with, help them that.

Iris: Don't you dare! Don't you dare tell me what it's like to be a mother since you don't know a damn thing about it!

Gwen: I can tell you one thing. I know I'm not --

Iris: You know you're not what?

Gwen: Nothing. It's been a real pleasure to see you.

Iris: Um, no, no, no -- what is it that you are not telling me?

Will: Hey! Hey, get your hands off her! You okay?

Gwen: Yeah.

Will: What did she do?

Gwen: You're honestly not going to believe it.

Will: Well, you don't need this, not tonight. Let's get out of here.

Gwen: I don't need her ever.

Iris: Oh, hi, Alison! You look so gorgeous. Listen, would you tell me why these two are acting like she's -- you got to be kidding me.

Will: Just sit down, breathe --

Gwen: I can’t. I cannot -- I can't even -- I couldn't explain to you how mad I am right now!

Will: Gwen, you need to calm down. Okay? She shouldn't be so mad.

Gwen: She -- she offered her money, Will, to leave town.

Will: I know, I know --

Gwen: And because my brother is such a little -- she doesn't have anybody, you know, she's desperate. She took the money. She's going to leave town.

Will: She's not going to leave, okay? We'll fix it. But not tonight. Right now you're going to go to bed. In the morning, I'll worry about Sofie, okay?

Gwen: Okay. You know what I really like about you?

Will: Everything?

Gwen: You don't say things you don't mean. If you say you're going to take care of Sofie, I know that you will.

Will: I'll try.

Gwen: I forgive you for following me.

Will: I wasn't following you.

Gwen: You just had a sudden urge to shop?

Will: Yeah, I was buying something for my girlfriend actually.

Gwen: Your girlfriend?

Will: My girlfriend. My wife. Mother of my kids. What have you.

Gwen: She sounds lovely.

Will: She is. So, I was going to give this to you later, but seeing as how I have to prove to you that I wasn't following you I guess I'll give it to you now. Come on, open it up.

Gwen: It's beautiful.

Will: It's for pictures of the baby.

Gwen: Thank you.

Will: What's the matter?

Gwen: Nothing. I just keep thinking about how happy having a baby is for us, and how sad having a baby is for Sofie. And I could really kill my mom right now.

Will: Oh, Gwen. Let me.

Luke: So, you're not going to answer my question?

Noah: I have to. Um, when I first met you -- when I was still following my father's playbook, the thing that got me about you was you have this calm thing, Luke. And I wanted to be near that.

Luke: Well, you're all the way across the room.

Noah: I wanted to be near that because I don't have it.

Luke: You didn't have it.

Noah: I'm not -- I'm talking about more than just coming out. I -- Maddie just told me she's afraid for you because she doesn't think you can count on me.

Luke: Well, what she thinks doesn't matter to us.

Noah: I think she's right. Luke, your parents are having these problems and it's out there, and you all talk about it, and you and your dad, you have like this secret language.

Luke: Okay, I don't think I know what you're talking about right now.

Noah: All my life has been a lie. Every second of it. And I do things and I don't know why -- and I don't want to tell you --

Luke: You know what? I think you should. Just spit it out.

Noah: After my father hurt you, I was scared to see you. And I went to see Maddie. And I came on to her. I tried to get her to sleep with me.

Luke: Oh.

Noah: She wouldn’t. But I would have.

Luke: Right.

Noah: And you know as well as I do that I wanted to be with you. But look what I did to you. Look what I did to Maddie. And you know, some part of me thinks that on some level, my dad's right --

Luke: Okay, no! No! Noah, please don't! Look, you may be messed up, and we may not have some nice, happy fairy-tale ending, but don't you for a second, tell me that man was right about anything! Especially about you.

Maddie: Well, maybe things are picking up a little.

Henry: Oh, yeah?

Maddie: Yeah, this is the first time all night that I haven't walked in on an intimate moment. Tell you what, it makes you feel like what the French call de trop.

Henry: Are you going to keep studying French at Wesleyan?

Maddie: You're so sure I'm going? Why?

Henry: Because it's a smart, gutsy thing to do and you do smart, gutsy things.

Maddie: Yes, well, are you sure it's not because I just walked in on my boyfriend with his boyfriend having a very private moment?

Henry: No.

Maddie: Yeah, I guess it's not the worst thing that can happen to you.

Henry: Not by a long shot, Sweetheart.

Maddie: Well, to be honest, it's a little disconcerting, but -- Noah. He has a boatload of problems. And then I see him and Luke together, and something just seems right. And makes me see once and for all that Noah and I are never going to have that. It's not that I don't have what I want. But I think I just need to go someplace else to find what I want.

Henry: Wesleyan maybe?

Maddie: Yeah, well, I hope so. And if it's not then --

Vienna: Well, you make another move. And another. If you have to.

Maddie: Right. Until I have what you guys have.

Henry: That's right. A diner that hemorrhages money?

Maddie: Knowing that you didn't give up until you got what you really wanted.

Henry: You know what I think? I think there's this guy at Wesleyan. Good looking guy --

Vienna: Very, very rich --

Maddie: Is he straight?

Henry: And he's good to his momma. And right now he has no idea that he's about to become the luckiest guy in the world.

Dusty: Hi, there, I'm going to need another room for tonight. That's right.

Holden: Another one. Make it a double.

Emily: Rough night, Holden?

Luke: You're right. Your father lied to you your whole life. About who you were. About who he was. About who your mom was. And then in one day, you find out the truth about all of it. And you go and you do something stupid? I mean, hey -- how could that happen, right?

Noah: It was wrong.

Luke: Yeah, it was. And you need to figure out why you did that. Like what was it inside of me that made you do that. And all that junk, but your father is a bigot. And your entire life, he's been telling you all the wrong stuff. And you may not know who you are, but he doesn't know one thing about you. And what he thinks about you, that doesn't matter. So, you want to know what you can do for me? You can prove to me that the man who put me in this chair didn't win. That you and me are stronger than he ever was. That's what you can do for me.

Maddie: Wow, you guys were so sure I was going.

Vienna: Yup.

Maddie: Okay, one thing. All this talk about the good-looking, rich straight guy -- I'm going to Wesleyan to find myself. Not to find some boy.

Vienna: Yes.

Maddie: And that's what's going to make you simply irresistible. What's going on Vienna?

Vienna: I'm sorry?

Maddie: Why?

Vienna: You kept saying that we're looking for what made us happy. And I'm happy, but it's not just because of Henry. I am a part of a family. A wonderful family. So, thank you.

Henry: Um, okay, somebody say something like really funny, or mean really fast.

Maddie: Okay, okay -- I got it. I love you. I love you both. And I'm really going to miss you.

Henry: That wasn't it.

Luke: I have those stupid exercises to try to undo what you did to me. You need to figure out how to undo what he did to you.

Noah: I don't know if I can.

Luke: Me neither. That's one more thing we have in common.

Noah: I can try.

Luke: Me, too.

Noah: It may take some time.

Luke: Time? Time is what I have.

Will: See how that looks. Hey, you okay?

Gwen: No. Something's wrong, Will. Something's really wrong.

Emily: I have a feeling there's a lot you're not telling me.

Holden: Emily, my life -- you don't want to know.

Emily: Apparently not. Well, it was nice seeing you again. I'm off to knock on Dusty's door -- if he's home. Surprise!

Holden: Oh, he will be. He's in his room. With my wife.

Dusty: Sweet dreams. Tomorrow's going to be a hell of a day for you.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Gwen: We better call the doctor.

Alison: Chris!

Dusty: You don't know Lily was here.

Emily: You know what? Maybe I should go.

Holden: Can you give me one good reason why you think that we should stay together?
