Brad: Ooh -- need fresh meat.

Katie: Eww!

Brad: Preferably blonde.

Katie: Stop it, now! How old are you, like six?

[Brad making scary noises]

[Katie screaming]

Brad: Zombies have no age!

Katie: Put me down! Put me down! Put me down!

Brad: Ohh! You are a zombie prisoner! I have you now.

Paul: Rosanna, I just asked you a question. Are you ready to marry me? Okay, what's going on? Is this wedding going to happen?

Meg: I just washed my hands.

Craig: Well, good to know. I've always been a fan of personal hygiene.

Meg: After I dried them, I put the towel on the second rack, not the third rack where I found it. I hope that's all right. You know, I could always put it back on the third rack.

Craig: Am I supposed to know what the hell you're talking about?

Meg: If you have no objections, umm, I'd like to call room service and get something to drink. Well?

Craig: Well, what?

Meg: What should I get to drink?

Craig: The antidote for whatever it is you're on. What the hell is wrong with you?

Carly: I am so sorry.

Gwen: I wish people wouldn't say that. It makes me feel like a charity case.

Carly: You're right.

Gwen: And you're the last person I should be dumping on. I mean, after everything you've been through, it's amazing that you're even here.

Carly: You know that being treated like a charity case thing you just mentioned?

Gwen: Right.

Carly: Okay, so I'll pick the topic.

Gwen: Okay.

Carly: Lovely wedding.

Gwen: Yes. You come here often?

Carly: Your hair is beautiful.

Gwen: That's sad.

[Both laughing]

Carly: It's sad, but it beats "I'm sorry" any day, doesn't it?

Gwen: Yeah, definitely. What happened to Jack?

Carly: You know, I don't know. He just -- he stepped out, he had something to do, but I thought he'd be back by now.

Katie: Down! Put me down! Down means now, not when you feel like it.

Brad: I have a cramp. Ahh --

Katie: Put me down!

Brad: Okay! Ow! You play dirty.

Katie: I -- I play dirty?

Brad: Holy cow, I think you scratched me. I'm telling Kim.

Katie: Oh, you're such a big baby. Let me see this supposed scratch?

Brad: Yeah, it's like -- right behind that huge bulging muscle. Right there, you scratched me. That's horrible.

Katie: Where? Where is this mortal wound?

[Brad wincing in pain]

Brad: Ow! You're horrible.

Meg: I can order tea. If you don't have a problem with my ordering tea?

Craig: I have a problem with you acting like some kind of Stepford wife, Meg.

Meg: Oh, but isn't that what you wanted, Craig? You made it very clear that you don't like me being independent, going off on my own.

Craig: You're not on lockdown.

[Slamís phone]

Meg: Then stop treating me that way. I'm not going to break, Craig. I'm just pregnant.

Craig: Yeah, you are pregnant with my child. And don't you understand, I'm doing all this because I love you?

Paul: Look, if this is about me going out before, I swear that had nothing to do with you. This is the most important night of my life. And I just needed a little time to think, that's all.

[Paul remembering]

Paul: You're asking me to leave Rosanna on our wedding day. In the off chance that you might be pregnant with my child.

Meg: Yes.

Rosanna: Is there anything you need to -- tell me?

Paul: Yes there is. I want to marry you. Right now.

Rosanna: Okay. That's all I needed to hear.

Paul: You had me worried. For a minute there I thought you changed your mind.

Rosanna: Do you really think that I could let you go?

Paul: You're everything to me. No one else even comes close.

Carly: Oh, Rosanna, there you are. Look, if you want to get married tonight, you have to come with me.

Paul: And the next time you kiss me, you'll be my wife.

Rosanna: And you'll be my husband -- forever.

Katie: Okay, it's a little red. There's nothing there.

Brad: Well, I am touched that you care enough to look. I thought for sure that you would leave me here to rot with all the rest of the ghouls.

Katie: Don't say rot, okay? Not when we're standing where we're standing.

Brad: Are you -- are you afraid of ghosts? Oh, sorry. You are.

Katie: No! No, it's just -- I get the whole Halloween, skeleton, ghost thing is supposed to be a joke. It's just, these used to be real people. And being here just feels wrong.

Brad: Well, let's get a move on and let these guys rest in peace.

Katie: Really?

Brad: You think I'd like some jerk goofing around on my grave? Think again. Come on, we're out of here.

Craig: I don't intend to lose you or this child, Meg. I protect the people I love. Now, sometimes that means I overreact --

Meg: It was your overreaction that caused you to lose all your other children.

Craig: What do you want from me?

Meg: It's not what I want Craig. I need to know that you really intend to change. I need to know that this time, it's going to be different.

Carly: You look spectacular.

Rosanna: Thank you so much for being here. I'm so grateful that you're here.

Carly: I'm not going anywhere. Not for a long time. I brought you something. Every bride needs a handkerchief. I don't know why no one designs these dresses with pockets. But -- Jack gave this to me when we were married in Montana. Consider it your something borrowed.

Rosanna: Thank you.

Carly: I didn't think you were going to make it back in time. What happened?

Jack: I was delayed. Sorry.

Carly: But you went looking for Rosanna, and she was back much before you were, so -- so --

Jack: Shh --

Minister: Please join hands with the person next to you. We will now have a moment of silence to honor the friends and family here today, in body and spirit, who share in Paul and Rosannaís joy. Marriage is more than simply recognizing that love exists, or blindly hoping that it will be everlasting. Marriage requires faith and commitment. Tolerance and understanding. It demands that a couple be able to stand together and face the unknown that is life. Together Paul and Rosanna will be their own new family. If anyone here can show just cause why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now, or forever hold your peace.

[Paul remembering]

Meg: I believe this baby is ours, that we conceived out of love. Will you look at me? Here, this -- this is what matters.

Minister: I'm honored to be here, bearing witness to Paul and Rosanna, pledging their hearts, and their lives to each other. This is an occasion that should bring hope to all of us that it is never too late. That there is no obstacle that is insurmountable to keep two people apart, who are destined, as Paul and Rosanna are, to be together.

Brad: Thank you for giving me a ride home.

Katie: Hey, what are friends for?

Brad: See, we had a good time after all. Katie?

Katie: I shouldn't have come here.

[Katie remembering]

Jack: What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labor, minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, and to be with each other in the silent unspoken memories.

Katie: I didn't think it would hurt so much remembering how happy I was. Right here. I was standing right here when Jack and I vowed to love each other for the rest of our lives.

Brad: Don't think about that now.

Katie: I don't know how not to. Everything here just reminds me of Jack. This is where we fell in love. We had our first kiss here.

Brad: You have to let that go. As hard as it is.

Katie: But this was -- is Jack's home. And in a way it was going to be mine too. I needed that. I wanted that so badly. To be part of a family -- a warm and loving place. And now it just reminds me of everything that I've lost.

Brad: This isn't just Jack's home. This is mine too. And you have to know, you are always welcome here.

Katie: Thanks. Really. But it's not the same.

Brad: Maybe it's not supposed to be.

Paul: Look, my whole life I felt like there was a piece missing. That there was some part of me that wasn't there, and if it was there, then I would feel whole. And you, Rosanna, you are that part. You are the reason that I fought to come back to this life. So that I could be with you, so that I could hold you. So that I could love you. I think that this is a new beginning for both of us. And nothing before now, before this moment, really mattered. Really had any meaning. And from now on, I get to stand by you, and I get to be a better and a stronger man for you, and because of you. And I know that I've made a lot of mistakes, and I've done a lot of stupid things, and I've done -- I've done some things that defy explanation. But not this. Because this -- being with you, marrying you, is right. And for the first time in my life, I'm really just at peace.

Craig: I keep telling you I want a family with you. I want to share my life with you. I keep hoping that's going to be enough.

Meg: Not when you put restrictions on me. You don't own me, Craig. And you don't own this child either.

Craig: I don't want to own either one of you. And I want to be a better father to this child than I was before. I want to be a better husband to you. But to do that, I am going to need something from you too.

Meg: Like what?

Craig: I need you to start being a better wife to me.

Paul: Are you okay, Rosanna?

Minister: Do you have anything to say?

Rosanna: You know, for a long time, I was in darkness. I didn't know where I was. No one could help me or hear me. No one even knew that I was alive inside. And then I looked up, and I saw you. Before I could remember who I was or -- or how I got in the hospital bed, I remembered loving you. You were my light in the darkness. And you -- you have been that for me ever since. I know that we have been here before, we have promised to love, honor and cherish each other before. But this time, we know how precious a gift that love is. We know that we have to fight to protect it. And that is why the bond between us now is stronger than it has ever been. It is unbreakable. I know what it's like to be in that darkness, I know what it's like to be without you. And I won't go back to it again. And I know that -- that you won't let me. After tonight, nothing, no one -- past, present, or future -- will ever come between us again.

Minister: Repeat after me. I give you this ring as the symbol of my love --

Paul: I give you this ring as the symbol of my love --

Rosanna: And with all that I have, and all that I am, I honor you.

Paul: With it I wed you and commit my life to you --

Rosanna: Forever. In the name of the father, and of the son, and the holy spirit.

Minister: Now that Paul and Rosanna have given themselves to each other by solemn vows, with the joining of hands and the giving and receiving of rings, I now pronounce them husband and wife. You may now kiss the bride.

Craig: I thought marriage was supposed to be about compromise.

Meg: Of course it is.

Craig: Well, then how can you doing whatever it is you want to do, whenever you want to do it, is always right, and my wanting to take care of you is always wrong? Can't we meet halfway?

Meg: That's what I want.

Craig: Well, then, in the interest of compromise, let me put my cards on the table, and my heart on my sleeve. My life, before you, Meg, it had a tendency to change in an instant. Sierra left me. A few words from Bryant on an answering machine, and the next thing I know, he's dead. My daughter leaves town, taking another child of mine with no word. I don't know where they are --

Meg: I understand all of that.

Craig: No, people that I love have a tendency to disappear. And I'm hoping to break that trend with you.

Meg: I can't give you back what you lost, Craig.

Craig: No, but you can keep me from losing something else. I don't want to lose you and this baby. Meg, do you understand? That's why I'm upset when I come home, and you're not here. You're not the only one that needs assurance that history is not going to repeat itself.

Carly: Here's a radical idea. You could actually tell me what's wrong, so I don't have to drag it out of you.

Jack: Okay. When I went to go find Rosanna, I ran into Katie and Brad.

Carly: And they said something to you?

Jack: No, they didn't know I was there. And I really didn't want to interrupt them.

Carly: I don't understand.

Jack: They looked like they were a little more than friends, okay? They were laughing, and carrying on like a couple of kids.

Carly: Well, Katieís been through a lot. Maybe hanging out with Brad, acting like a kid, is just what she needs.

Jack: Right.

Carly: You seem -- almost jealous that they were together.

Jack: Yeah. Maybe I am.

Katie: I should probably be getting back.

Brad: It's okay.

Katie: No, it's not. I can't keep losing it like this. For a moment there I was standing here, feeling like I used to. Felt like I was just waiting for Jack to come home.

Brad: Instead you're here with me.

Katie: No, it's not your fault! It's nobody's fault. But I can't keep doing this. I can't keep dumping my moods on you, and relying on you. I keep thinking that maybe I should go somewhere. I should just clear my head, but honestly, I don't think it will help.

Brad: I wish there was something I could do to make the pain go away.

Katie: I wish that too.

Craig: You say you want me to be honest with you, and then when I am, you pull away.

Meg: Sometimes when you open up to me like that, it's just so out of character it's -- it's overwhelming. But you're right. I haven't been a good wife.

Craig: That sounds like the start of a confession. Is it?

Meg: No. I have nothing to confess.

Paul: Your vows were very powerful.

Rosanna: Oh, I just spoke from the heart. And I meant every word. We're unbreakable now.

Will: Hey, we can get out of here if you want to. We don't have to stay.

Gwen: No, I'm fine.

Barbara: I am so sorry about the adoption fiasco. I just want to make it up to you. I will find a better agency, or maybe you might be able to adopt privately. No agency at all.

Gwen: No, please, stop. You know whose fault it is? It's not yours, it's not the agency's -- it's mine.

Will: Gwen, stop --

Gwen: And no matter how much I keep telling myself that kids just aren't in the cards for some people, I just feel like there's got to be something wrong with me.

Barbara: I don't want to see her upset like this. Let's think about a private adoption, okay? Please --

Will: Mom, no one is going to let a former mental patient adopt a child -- publicly or privately.

Jack: I'm going to top this off. You want anything?

Carly: No.

Brad: You deserve better than this. You deserve better than me, even. And if you ever tell anybody I said that --

Katie: Your secret's safe with me.

Brad: So cry, yell, throw a punch -- you have a really good punch by the way. I'm here for you. Katie --

[Cell phone ringing]

Katie: You should probably get that.

Brad: Carly.

Carly: Are you still with Katie?

Brad: Well, not right now. How did you know?

Carly: Jack saw the two of you together.

Brad: Did he like what he saw?

Carly: No!

Brad: Good.

Carly: Bad. Instead of letting this wedding remind him of the times we've shared, he spent the entire time worried about her.

Brad: He should be worried about Katie. This whole thing has been so hard on her, and your lies have really messed up her life. And she's not the only one hurting.

Carly: Failure to die is not a crime.

Brad: Well, why don't you let my brother, the detective, decide that one?

Carly: Brad, I want him to know the truth just as much as you do. It's just the time has not been right.

Brad: Yeah, well, I've been there. But you got to bite the bullet and get it done.

Carly: I will. I will tell him very soon. I'm so close. That's why I called you.

Brad: Talk fast.

Carly: Is there any way you can get Katie to leave town for a little bit? You know, some story for "Oakdale Now"? Brad? What is it you're not telling me?

Brad: Katie was just talking about leaving town for a little bit.

Carly: That's perfect! Convince her to go!

Brad: Hello! I don't want her to go. I want her with me.

Carly: Well, go with her. Brad, this could be the chance we've both been waiting for.

Will: Do you need help getting out of that?

Gwen: No, I'm good.

Will: I'm going to go take a shower, unless you want to go first.

Barbara: Gwen wasn't feeling well, so Will took her home.

Rosanna: Oh, I understand. But at least she was able to be here for the ceremony. Yes?

Maid: You have a phone call, Mrs. Ryan.

Rosanna: Mrs. Ryan. It feels so good to say that, to be that again. Excuse me.

Barbara: I understand why you were asking about Rosanna. She does a little -- intense.

Paul: Yeah, well, we're both a little emotional. I think it's because we never thought we'd get this chance again.

Katie: I'm sorry.

Brad: Isn't there something about being co-stars that means you never have to say "I'm sorry"?

Katie: No, I'm sorry because I'm taking all my confusion out on you, and it's not fair. I should've known coming here would mess with my head.

Brad: You know, I've been thinking, maybe you were onto something, when you were talking leaving town. Going someplace where nothing reminds you of Jack.

Katie: You think?

Brad: Yeah, it can't hurt.

Katie: I spoke to my mom earlier today. She's doing some shows in the Bahamas.

Brad: Great idea! I love that! Sandy beaches, you know, drinks with umbrellas, tan lines -- I'm in.

Katie: No, you're not.

Brad: Look, I know, I know, you're thinking of the show. I'll talk to Kim about, you know, we'll do great story on the Bahamian beaches. I guess I should find out if it's Bahamian or Bahamanian?

Katie: Brad, it doesn't matter because you're not coming with me!

Rosanna: There's only one person I wanted to have this.

Carly: Rosanna, thank you. I know you know what this means to me.

Rosanna: Enjoy the time you have together. You never realize how precious it is until it's gone.

[Barbara is at the cemetery at Halís grave]

Barbara: Fake flowers. You'd think, for the chief of detectives, they could do something a little classy, don't you? I know, I know, I know, I can hear you. "Barbara, get to the point." I used to hate it when you said that. Drove me crazy. But even though it would take me a long time to get to the point, you'd like what I had to say. You always listened. And now it's too late. I just wish I could hear what you had to say. Because I've made a mess of things. I failed our son. I know, I know, you warned me, everyone warned me. And I just didn't listen because I manipulated Will's life for years because I thought I knew what was best. But now I know that I was wrong. It was self-serving. And Hal, I've hurt our son so badly.

Will: Gwen?

Barbara: He deserves to be a father. The wonderful father that you taught him to be. He deserves a normal life, Hal. And I swear, I swear, I will do whatever it takes to make sure that that happens.

Rosanna: Alone at last.

Paul: Mm-hmm.

Rosanna: Paul, is something wrong?

Paul: Rosanna, there is something wrong. Look, I made a mistake. And I don't know if I'll ever be able to make it up to you, but at least I have to try. I have neglected to ask my beautiful wife if she would please dance with me.

Iris: Well, well, well -- if it isn't my fellow mommy-in-law. Barbie, this must be your lucky day.

Barbara: What do you want, Iris?

Iris: Barbie, you and I, we got something in common. See, we both want our children to be happy, and we -- well, we know they're not going to be until they have a kid of their very own. So, I've come up with an idea on how to help them.

Barbara: God help us.

Iris: I got the lead on a baby. I thought you should be the first to know.

Barbara: And why is that?

Iris: Because it's going to cost you.

Gwen: When we got married, you gave -- I felt like anything was possible. And you gave me things that I'd only ever dreamed of -- a home, somebody who loved me, and a future.

Will: You still have all of that.

Gwen: What have I given you? Nothing.

Will: How can you say that?

Gwen: Because you're too nice to say it, so I will. This isn't the life you imagined when you married me.

Barbara: It's always about money with you, isn't it?

Iris: All righty, well, I'll just tell the stork to forget it then.

Barbara: What sort of stork is this?

Iris: You see, that's the beauty of it. It's my grandbaby.

Barbara: You mean, it will be.

Iris: No, it is my grandbaby. See my son, Cole, he accidentally got this girl knocked -- well, in a family way. You see, they're just -- they're not ready to have a family. So with your Will and my Gwennie just crying their eyes out for a kid. It's a win-win!

Barbara: I can't believe it.

Iris: I know! I know! Talk about luck!

Barbara: Talk about tacky! You actually expect me to buy your grandchild from you? Are you completely insane?

Iris: Now you see -- that would be you and Will, you would know something about that, huh? Just thinking about it. Okay? It might make a whole lot of people happy.

Will: That's not true. I love you and I love our life together.

Gwen: Why?

Will: What kind of a question is that? You think I married you just to have kids?

Gwen: No. But you didn't marry me thinking that you'd never be able to have a child. I saw how great you were with Johnny. You love kids.

Will: Not more than I love you.

Gwen: Never is a really long time, Will. We can never have kids. I don't know how we're supposed to deal with that.

Brad: No, you do. You do want me to go with you. Think of the ratings. And I -- I could really use a break from Oakdale myself. And you'll be miserable without me. I make you smile.

Katie: Yeah, you do. Against all odds. But I have to do this for myself, which means I have to be there alone. If you're there, I'll lean on you. And when I'm vulnerable, I -- make mistakes.

Brad: Mistakes?

Katie: I don't want to ruin --

Brad: If you say ruin our friendship, girl or no girl, I'm going to bop you one.

Katie: Please don't bop me. And please tell me you understand.

Brad: I do. I'm gonna miss you.

Katie: I'm gonna miss you too.

Carly: It was nice of her to give this to me, huh?

Jack: Yeah, it was.

Carly: Oh, you know, I loaned her my handkerchief. The one that you gave me at our wedding. Something borrowed.

Jack: I bet she didn't have any pockets in her wedding gown either.

Carly: You remember that?

Jack: I remember everything about that day. My life's never been the same since. I'm going to go check on the kids. Make sure Sage didn't fall asleep in her costume.

Carly: Well, I'll be up in a minute to help you peel her out of it. I'm just going to put this in some water. [Phone rings] Hello?

Brad: You got your wish. She's not on the plane yet, but she's definitely going.

Carly: And you don't sound very happy about that. I take it you weren't invited.

Brad: You take it right.

Carly: Well, don't worry. She'll come back. And she'll come back to you. People have a way of ending up exactly where they belong.

Meg: I'm sorry, but I still don't feel very well.

Craig: Oh, yeah -- okay. It's pretty common in the first trimester. See -- I've been reading up. When you're ready to pop, I will be an expert on you and everything there is to know about this baby.

Meg: I don't know if I should be flattered or terrified.

Craig: Probably a little of both.

Meg: So with all this knowledge, I assume you're okay if we don't --

Craig: Yeah. As long as I got my arms around you and our beautiful baby, I'm a happy man.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Jack: Really I forget -- I forget about you being sick.

Paul: Think about what you could do with all that money.

Rosanna: When you went to the cemetery last night before the wedding, why were you with Meg?

Meg: If it does prove that the baby is Paulís then everything will change.
