Jack: It's a little late to start asking questions. Unless you've changed your mind about getting married.
Carly: I want to be your wife again, more than anything.
Jack: Okay. All right, then come on, let's do this.
Carly: But do you really want this?
Jack: Carly, it's what you want -- -- and that's good enough for me.
Meg: Can you give me a sample for the paternity test?
Paul: Now, why would I do that if I know that this baby isn't mine?
Meg: You moved heaven and earth to make sure that Jenniferís baby didn't even know Craig. And now you can't even give me a few strands of hair to make sure that Craig doesn't end up raising your child --
Paul: Maybe I can't stand the idea of you being the mother of my child. Are you all right? Meg?
Craig: Meg? Meg, are you all right? What is it? What is it, our baby?
Meg: What? I don't know. I just couldn't catch my breath --
Craig: Thank God. Thank God.
Meg: It's okay. Don't worry. Our baby's fine.
Jack: The minister's ready. The guests are all here. Our children are in the church just waiting.
Carly: I'm waiting, too.
Jack: I just told you --
Carly: This can't just be about what I want. And I need you to say that it -- that isn't it. That when we go into that church and take those vows, it's because -- it's because you want forever with me, and not just a few weeks you think I've got left. Say you want forever with me, Jack.
Brad: You deserve better than this. You deserve better than me, even. If you ever tell anybody I said that --
Katie: Your secret's safe with me.
Brad: So cry, you know yell, throw a punch you really can punch by the way. I'm here for you. I wish I can keep that promise, Katie.
Jack: I am here marrying you because this is where I need to be.
Carly: That's not good enough --
Jack: Oh, I want to be with you. What I don't want is to give you a long list of reasons why when there's a whole bunch of people in there waiting for us.
Carly: I love you, Jack.
Jack: I love you, too.
Craig: Are you all right? What can I do for you? Do you want to sit down? You want some water?
Meg: I'm fine. I'm fine, Craig. I'm fine.
Craig: So what the hell did you say to my wife?
Jack: I just said that I love you. It doesn't usually make you sad.
Carly: I'm just thinking about the last time we got married. How excited you were.
Jack: I try not to think about that day. Words like forever. Always. They had different meanings then. Now, given to what's happening to you, it's just --
Carly: I'm just being silly. Let's go inside, huh? What is it?
Jack: Someone's sitting in the car over there. Katie? It's Katie!
Paul: You're the one who's upsetting your wife, Craig.
Meg: Craig, please. Don't do this. You know I've been -- actually even the littlest things sets me off. That's all it is.
Craig: What little thing did he say to you? And don't tell me you don't remember.
Paul: I remember. Do you want me to tell you?
Meg: Paul doesn't want me anywhere near him. He made that quite clear. Again.
Craig: If I need to get a restraining order to keep you from harassing my wife, I will.
Meg: Craig, stop it! Paul didn't approach me. I approached him.
Jack: Sorry. I thought that was Katie.
Carly: Are you sure it wasn't?
Jack: Well, whoever it was, it took off before I got there. Come on. Let's get you inside.
Carly: Why would it be Katie? How would she even know there was a wedding?
Jack: I called her and let her know that I was going married to you. For a split second there, I thought she might come here to --
Carly: You thought she might come here to stop you from going through with it?
Carly: Could she do that? If she came here and said she wanted you back?
Jack: It didn't happen.
Carly: If it had -- if Katie had shown up and asked you not to go through with it, would you still be marrying me?
Meg: I am tired of feeling all this tension every time Paul and I bump into each other. I didn't expect to see him here --
Craig: Why are you here?
Paul: Uh, well, the bride is my wife's sister. You remember my wife? She's the woman you tried to kill --
Meg: Okay, stop it! Both of you.
Jack: Only you would pick a fight with me seconds before our wedding.
Carly: Well, I bet sweet little Katie wouldn't do a rude thing like that. Well, I'm not sweet. I'm greedy. And I want you. All of you. And if that's not what you want --
Jack: It is what I want, Carly.
Carly: Then why did you leave me standing here in a wedding dress while you went chasing after somebody you thought might be Katie?
Jack: Because I hurt her! I hurt her. That's what's been tearing me up. Hey, you want all of me? You've got it. You've got my love for you, you've got my grief that I'm losing you, and you've got my guilt about hurting Katie. And make no mistake about it, you're going to get all of this when I take those vows. So are we going to do this or what? Huh? Come on. What?
Carly: Just promise me that we'll laugh like that at least once a day.
Jack: I do.
Rosanna: I was just looking for Carly.
Craig: I saw her outside with Jack when we came in. Come along, Sweetheart. I think Paul has some things to explain to his wife.
Paul: Craig was just starting trouble. Nothing was there.
Rosanna: I didn't ask for an explanation. I could use those tissues, though. Thank you.
Paul: Rosanna --
Rosanna: Um, I have to go find Carly. I think everyone's waiting.
Craig: You know we could have sat with your mother.
Meg: She doesn't like you.
Craig: My point exactly. It would be far more difficult for her to glare at me if we were sitting in the same pew.
Meg: Yeah, well why are you even here? I thought that we decided that your presence isn't welcome in my family --
Craig: Actually, no, you decided that. Because you think I'm a thorn in Carly's side.
Meg: She thinks you tried to kill her sister.
Craig: Be that as it may, I wanted to show that I was willing to rise above the problems in the past and show Jack and Carly that I supported them. And since you are now having my baby, I think it's time for your family to face the fact, I am here for the duration.
Rosanna: Well, hi. I thought you two had eloped.
Carly: Yes, well, Carly tried to back out of it. But I talked her out of it.
Rosanna: Well, it would have served you right. Don't you know that it's bad luck to see the bride before the wedding?
Carly: Well, then I guess we should break all the rules.
Katie: You were leaving? You were just going to take off without talking to me first?
Brad: I figured there was nothing I could say to make things better, so -- I just forgot my cell phone.
Katie: I went to the church and I saw Carly and she said --
Brad: I figured that's what happened. I'm sorry.
Katie: No, don't, no. You can't leave. Not yet.
Jack: It means a lot to me to have the best two Snyder men I know standing up for me today.
Holden: I still haven't been able to reach Brad. Do you want to hold off until we track him down?
J.J.: Maybe he's with Katie.
Parker: Shut up.
Jack: No, hey. J.J.'s right. If Brad's helping Katie through this, then that's good. I'm glad she's not alone.
Brad: Do you want to yell at me? Go ahead.
Katie: I --
Brad: Look, I know -- I know what you're going to say. You know, you trust someone, you believe in them -- they stab you in the back. It hurts bad. And I'm really -- I'm sorry about that. I really am. So, say what you're going to say.
Lily: You look beautiful.
Carly: I didn't think I'd see you. Should I be glad you're here?
Carly: Carly, it's not too late. Tell Jack the truth.
Carly: I tried to. Just now.
Lily: What happened?
Carly: It wasn't the right time.
Lily: Carly, what if he finds out?
Carly: He will find out -- after the wedding. And everything will be fine. I know you think I'm making a mistake, but this is not like you and Holden.
Carly: Holden is divorcing me because I kept things from him. How is this different?
Carly: Because Holden is so angry that he's forgotten how much he loves you. But Jack remembers. I'm not forcing him to do this.
Lily: I just want you to remember one thing when you walk down that aisle. And you look at Jack. You're not dying.
Carly: I don't understand --
Lily: Nothing about this day is temporary. If Jack finds out the truth on his own, he will despise you forever. And if you lose him because you're so desperate to keep him, you're going to regret that for the rest of your life.
Carly: Hey --
Gwen: Carly, you look amazing.
Sage: Is it almost time?
Carly: Oh, yeah. Yes. Very soon, your daddy and me, and your brothers, we're all going to be a family again.
Lily: Good luck.
Rosanna: Well, this is it. Are you ready? Carly, are you okay?
Carly: I'm about to marry the man I love. What could be better than that?
Katie: So Carly's going to get her wedding. It's so great, but I don't get it. Jack's going to find out the truth, whether I tell him or not. And then he's going to leave again, so what was the point of all this?
Brad: Well, she's got that covered.
Katie: What covered?
Brad: I got a plane to catch.
Katie: What is Carly planning?
Brad: I don't know, not for sure.
Katie: Well, then, why don't you tell me what you do know?
Brad: I didn't mean to make it sound like I have some inside track on Carly's plans. My guess is that, she set it up so, after the wedding, she discovers she's not dying.
Katie: Without ever admitting that she knew the truth the entire time.
Brad: That way Jack is happy about the news and never has to find out she lied to him.
Katie: Oh, my God, how could she do this to him? She's supposed to love him. Jack's gonna find out, Brad. And when he does, he's gonna be humiliated. I gotta stop her.
Brad: Katie, Katie, that is just a guess. I mean, I don't know if Carly's gonna do it that way.
Katie: If you thought of it, chances are, so did she.
Brad: Where are you going?
Katie: I should have stopped this when I had the chance. Hopefully, it's not too late.
Minister: You may be seated. Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to rejoin this man and this woman in holy matrimony.
Brad: Katie, are you sure you want to do this?
Katie: I can't let Carly make a fool of Jack. I love him too much to let that happen.
Brad: You're right. Even if Jack does love Carly, he deserves to know the truth.
Minister: As you two well know, marriage is not something to enter into lightly. In fact, the fact that you two have come together again speaks of your abiding love for each other, trust in each other and hopes for the future. And since I'm certain that all of those gathered here bless and support this union, I won't even ask if anyone has objections.
Jack: Actually, Reverend, I think we do need to stop right there.
Katie: Jack loves Carly. Why do I keep ignoring that? He loves her.
Brad: He feels sorry for her.
Katie: He loves her, Brad. That's why he left on our wedding day to be with her. That's why he moved in with her to take care of her. That's why he's marrying her today. It wouldn't matter if I told him the truth. He would forgive her, and he would stay with her. 'Cause that's exactly where he wants to be.
Carly: Jack, what are you doing?
Jack: I'm answering your question. Just before we came in here, Carly asked me if I really wanted to marry her. I thought that was a really silly question at the time. Wasn't it obvious how I was feeling? Or do you need to hear the words? I mean, granted, this past year, we've yelled when we should have listened. We've ran when we should have stayed. And at first, I thought that this wedding would be like celebrating the end of something, but I was wrong. You were right. It's like a beginning for us. A chance for a fresh start. In spite of everything that we've been through, to love without lies, without holding back. So to answer her question -- to answer your question, I want forever with you, Carly, but I'll take what I can get.
Minister: Now, there'll be time for that after the ceremony. Shall we proceed?
Jack: I'm sorry. You were saying?
Minister: So you do indeed take this woman to be your wife?
Jack: I do. As long as we both shall live.
Carly: I --
Jack: What is it?
Carly: You looked so sad just now. And it finally hit me -- it finally hit me how I would feel if I found out that you were sick. How much it would hurt. With every breath -- Jack, I have to tell you something. You need to know something. I need to talk to you.
Jack: Do you want to go someplace?
Carly: No, no. I need to do this. I need to do this right now, okay?
Jack: Okay, yeah.
Carly: When I first found out that I was sick, I realized that every moment is precious. And we have to make every minute count, whether we're just going to live to the end of next week or for another 60 years.
Carly: What I'm telling you is that I'm grateful. I'm grateful for my diagnosis, Jack. Hearing it, it scared me, and it woke me up. It made me see what's truly important. You and our children. Our life.
Carly: And because of that, I need to tell you now this, right now. I need to tell you and everyone here should know. Jack, I'm not dying after all.
Jack: Say that again?
Carly: The doctors were wrong, Jack. I'm going to live.
Jack: Oh, Baby! Oh, Carly!
Gwen: You're really going to be all right?
Rosanna: This is the best news!
Emma: Oh, Carly. Oh, I couldn't be happier. I couldn't be happier.
Brad: I'm sure the wedding's over by now.
Katie: Yeah, they're probably all in the car. Jack, Carly, and the kids. All piled in, laughing.
Brad: Let's get out of here. Drive to Chicago maybe.
Katie: It doesn't matter where we are, I'm still have these pictures in my head. Jack kissing the bride, still thinking it might be the last. Not knowing that Carly lied to him. Cutting the cake. Sleeping with her. Wait, you were leaving earlier.
Katie: I made you miss your plane. I'm sorry, I wasn't thinking.
Brad: Don't worry about it. Look, I'll see you at work. Okay?
Katie: No, no, wait. Don't go. Please, will you stay?
Brad: I don't think that's a good idea.
Katie: You're sick of me crying on your shoulder. I understand.
Brad: Katie, no. I hate seeing you hurt, but also, I hate when you treat me like I'm my brother.
Katie: You think I'm --
Brad: Like I'm going to do the right thing, which I hardly ever do. And like somehow, I'm better than Carly, which I'm not. Believe me, I am not.
Jack: You're sure?
Carly: I'm sure.
Jack: The doctors are sure?
Carly: They're sure, Jack. The tumor, it turned out to be something else.
Emma: How could the doctors make a mistake like that?
Meg: It does happen sometimes.
Jack: I'm glad it happened this time.
Rosanna: Is this what you meant when you said the other day that everything was going to be all right?
Carly: Yeah, I didn't want you to worry.
Jack: The other day? How long have you known?
Katie: You underestimate yourself, Brad.
Brad: Listen to me. When I say I'm a bad guy, believe it. I'm a bad guy.
Katie: Okay. Will you stay? If you leave, I'm gonna go to Jack, and I'm gonna tell him the truth.
Brad: Would that be so bad?
Katie: Because he'll leave her and come back to me. But it won't be because he loves me. It'll be because he hates her.
Jack: How long have you known?
Carly: I'll explain everything to you, Jack. Why don't we just finish what we started, okay? Reverend, I think we can probably skip the vows, right, and just go right to the rings.
Jack: How long have you known that you weren't going to die? How long?
Carly: For a while.
Brad: I guess I just always believed that there could be no one else for my brother but Carly. Not until today, seeing you here, worrying about him, I feel sorry for the guy.
Katie: He's marrying the woman he loves.
Brad: You're the woman that who loves him, I mean really loves him. And that's a hell of a thing to miss out on.
Jack: Would you mind taking the kids out of here?
Gwen: Come on, Sage.
Sage: I don't understand. I know Mommy was sick before, but if she's all better now, why can't they still get married?
Rosanna: I'll meet you back at the house.
Paul: Okay. I love you.
Holden: Have you guys seen Lily?
Craig: She snuck out right after Carly made her big announcement.
Holden: Jack's going to need us to be there for him when he gets back to the farm.
Meg: I'll be right behind you.
Craig: Hold on, I'll follow you, okay?
Meg: No! No, Jack needs to be around people he trusts, and you're not on that list, Craig. The last thing I want is for Jack to look across the room and see you gloating.
Craig: I wasn't planning to gloat. I just -- I wanted to be with you.
Meg: I'm sorry. That was an awful thing to say. I apologize.
Craig: Just take care of our baby, and take care of our baby's mama, okay?
Meg: Yeah, I'll do that.
Jack: Don't. Just don't.
Meg: I thought you didn't want to talk to me.
Paul: I don't. This is the sample for your paternity test.
Meg: So you really do think that this child may be yours?
Paul: And when you find out for sure, what I already know, that this is not my child, you don't even need to call me.
Jack: How long is a while?
Carly: Can't you just be happy that I'm going to be all right?
Jack: Before I proposed? Before the trip to Montana? How long?
Carly: Since the night Katie told you she needed distance.
Sage: So what's going to happen now?
Will: Your parents are going to take care of you. Like always.
J.J.: Dad seemed pretty mad. Do you think they're still going to get married?
Gwen: I think we should focus on the good news. I mean, your mom's not sick. Isn't that great?
Sage: Mommy said something good was going to happen, and she was right.
Parker: Because she already knew that she wasn't really sick at all.
Carly: I wanted to tell you. I tried that night and then so many nights since then. Right up until you proposed, I tried. And then you proposed. It was everything I wanted. I didn't want to jinx it. I just wanted you.
Jack: Even if you had to lie to keep me?
Carly: You're the one who came to all my medical appointments when I told you not to. When I tried to send you home to your brand new wife.
Jack: You expected me to abandon you, Carly?
Carly: What I didn't expect was that you would still love me. But you did. You loved my enough to leave Katie on your wedding night to hold my hand. You loved me enough to ask me to marry you.
Jack: And you said yes, knowing that I thought you only had a couple of months to live, at most.
Carly: Right outside this church, I gave you another chance to walk away. And you said you were here because it's where you said you wanted to be. And you know what I think? I think you were telling the truth.
Holden: You left early.
Lily: I wanted to check on Luke.
Holden: Can you believe that Carly's known that she's not dying, for a while now? And she decided it was okay to keep it from Jack.
Emma: I tell you, I don't know what to think. I don't know how Carly could be so incredibly selfish, I really don't? I'm going to go upstairs and change. Will you call me when Jack comes in?
Holden: I will.
Lily: Okay. I should go.
Holden: You knew, didn't you?
Lily: Yes, I did.
Jack: When were you planning to tell me about the misdiagnosis?
Carly: I hadn't given it much thought.
Jack: No you thought about it. You thought about it. I mean come on, you would have had to tell me about -- soon. You couldn't have waited too long because you were supposed to kick the bucket around the first of the year, so --if you weren't pushing daisies by New Years, then I would have put two and two together, so you would have had to tell me pretty soon, Carly.
Carly: But it's not New Years, is it?
Jack: You were lying.
Carly: I could have waited until then. But I didn't, did I? I could have pretended that we would hear the news together.
Jack: Oh, we would have gotten the miraculous news together? That's good. That might even have worked.
Katie: I can't fight what those two have. God knows I've tried.
Brad: I'm sorry.
Katie: You didn't do anything.
Brad: I didn't. I should've. I could've.
Katie: Honestly Brad, tell me what you could have done.
Jack: So, all your talk about new beginnings and hoping for a miracle, that was all just a setup for when you finally did get the good news. What made you do it? What was it that finally tipped your conscience in the direction of the truth for a change?
[Meg is at the hospital. Outside the door is the guy Rosanna paid to spy on Meg]
Meg: I know it's too early to do CVS testing on the baby, but I was hoping that maybe we could get started on the DNA profiling for these samples.
Lab tech: The lab's backed up Meg. It'd be better if you go through your gynecologist for this.
Meg: I can't. Is there anything you can do to help me out?
Lab tech: I'll see if I can squeeze you in.
Meg: Thank you.
Rosanna: Paul? [Cell phone ringing] Hello?
Fellows: Mrs. Montgomery just dropped off some DNA samples with the lab.
Rosanna: Samples? As in more than one?
Fellows: She had one with her before the wedding. Then your husband gave her something after the wedding. Now she has two.
Rosanna: Thanks for calling. I'll be in touch.
Paul: I hope that wasn't more bad news.
Lab tech: Meg, you're all set. After your prenatal procedure, we'll be ready to roll.
Meg: Thank you so much, Bailey.
Lab tech: No problem.
Rosanna: That was just Gwen. About the kids. They're very upset.
Paul: You could have told her to bring the kids over here.
Rosanna: I've been away for so long -- I think it's better that they're with Will and Gwen. They'll be more comfortable.
Paul: How are you doing?
Rosanna: I'm happy that my sister's going to live.
Paul: Yeah. I still can't believe she did that to Jack and the kids.
Rosanna: Well my sister was just trying to hold onto the person that she loved. A person that she was certain that loved her. I've done as much myself. So have you.
Holden: You knew what Carly was doing, and you didn't say a word?
Lily: She's my friend. I was trying to help.
Holden: Even though you knew that it might hurt Jack and the kids.
Lily: I was trying to convince her to be honest with Jack, which she was.
Holden: It's too late.
Lily: She didn't take the vows, Holden.
Holden: Why didn't you tell me?
Lily: Because it wasn't my secret to tell, Holden! If you want to make this one more unforgivable thing that I have done, so be it.
Carly: You said you wanted forever with me.
Jack: Stop throwing my words back at me.
Carly: I've waited so long to hear those words. And when you said them, I finally believed that you wanted to be with me because you loved me, not because you thought I was dying. And you do still love me.
Jack: I can't listen to this.
Carly: You're the one who made me believe in us again. And you're the one who can make me believe it's over. Just look me in the eyes, look me in the eyes and tell me you don't love me.
Brad: I could've shaken some sense into him. Told him that he was throwing away the best thing that ever happened to him.
Katie: So, after all these months of working together, you're finally starting to like me?
Brad: No. I'm just hoping that you'll still like me after all this is over.
Katie: How could I not? You're the one good thing that came out of all of this. You've gone above and beyond. You've been there for me like no one else could've. If I wasn't married, I'm not married.
Brad: No, you're not.
Jack: How could I love you? How could I after what you've done?
Carly: I don't know. I've never understood what makes us perfect for each other. I just know that we are.
Jack: Whatever we are, it's not what I want.
Carly: You love me. I'm the woman you married two, almost three times. The woman you stole from your brother. The woman you broke your marriage vows for. I am the mother of your children. And when you lay dying, your last thought will be of me, as mine will be of you.
Jack: Proving what?
Carly: That you should give me one more chance.
On the next -- "As the World Turns".
Barbara: The attorney that I hired has found a couple.
Brad: You know why I'm here. You know how I feel about you.
Carly: Jack, please. Please don't do this!
Jack: You knew? And you were going to let me go through with it?
