Craig: You were supposed to be at your exercise class. What are you doing back to the hospital?
Meg: I didn't want to upset you, Craig. It's about the baby.
Craig: Is something wrong? What's the matter? What happened?
Paul: She was in a coma for two years, and that -- that can't happen again.
Nurse: We're doing everything we can.
Paul: Yeah. Well, what if that's not enough? Hello. Can you put me through, please. It's an emergency. It's an emergency. This is a matter of life and death. I don't care where he is, find him. I need to speak with him.
Paul: This baby can't be Craig's. It has to be mine.
[Rosanna tries to open up hospital door where Meg and Paul are]
Rosanna: No! No! Hey! No!
Carly: I'll do the dishes. J.J. and Parker, you go do your homework, okay?
Parker: I'm done already.
Carly: Well, then you can help Sage with her Thanksgiving art project.
Parker: Do I have to?
J.J.: I'll help her.
Sage: Thanks, J.J.
Parker: You're trying to make us feel like everything's normal, but it's not.
Carly: It's a school night. You're going to do your homework, and then you're going to go to bed.
Carly: Hi. Well, it's -- certainly nice to see you.
Jack: I'm taking the kids back to the farm.
Bonnie: Well, just remember. If you change your mind, I can serve Lily with the separation papers.
Holden: No, that's okay. I think I need to do it.
Bonnie: Well, at least let me buy you some dessert first. What's your favorite?
Holden: Ha, ha, that's easy -- pie.
Bonnie: Of course, you're a Snyder. Your mom's, like, famous for her pies. But you know, Al's diner is a close second. So why don't we go get a slice or two?
Holden: Sounds like a plan. Let's do it. And I promise, I won't talk about Lily.
Lily: Lisa owns the place. She gave me the key. I knew it would come in handy some day.
Dusty: Here we are.
Lily: Yeah. It's amazing, isn't it?
Dusty: It's been a long time.
Lily: Yeah. A lot of things have changed, but somehow this feels the same.
Dusty: This calls for a toast.
Lily: Yes, it does. A toast. So, here we go. So tell me, what should we toast to?
Dusty: What else? To old times.
Meg: Nothing is wrong with the baby. I was on my way to my exercise class, and I was getting some minor cramps, so I thought I'd come in to see Dr. Bullock, just to be safe.
Craig: Look, I am your husband and you are carrying my baby. Now, you don't think that deserves a phone call?
Meg: This is exactly why I didn't call you, because I knew you would overreact.
Craig: So you deliberately kept me in the dark. What else aren't you telling me?
Paul: No, this is not Craig Montgomery. My name is Paul Ryan, and Rosanna and I were married a few days ago. And she needs your help. She had another seizure. She's lost consciousness, and they can't wake her up.
Dr. Cutler: I'm sorry to hear that. When we gave her the drug, there was always a danger that the effect might only be temporary.
Paul: Yeah, I know. Look, I know you treated her before, and I want you to treat her again. So, how soon can you get here?
Dr. Cutler: I just finished a medical conference in Minneapolis. I'm at the airport now.
Paul: Great. Stay right, there and I'll have the Cabot jet pick you up, okay?
Dr. Cutler: Good. The next few hours are critical.
Meg: If I can prove this baby is yours, would you leave Rosanna?
Paul: If this baby's mine, of course I want to be with you. We'll raise this child together.
Carly: I won't let you take the kids, Jack. I was away from them for too long.
Jack: Whose fault was that?
Carly: Mine. But I came back to them. No matter what I've done, I'm still their mother.
Jack: You'll always be their mother, Carly. That's not the point.
Carly: They need me.
Jack: What? So you can teach them how to lie?
Carly: I told you the truth.
Jack: Your lies hurt so many people, Carly. Most of all, the kids. I won't let you hurt them anymore.
Carly: I know I hurt the kids when I went away. And you will be hurting them all over again if you take them away from me.
Jack: After everything they've been through, they need stability in their lives. And right now, I'm the only one that can give that to them.
Carly: Before we found out that I was going to be all right, you were the one who said how important it is to keep our family together. Are you going to tell them that you were wrong about that? Are you going to break your word to them?
Paul: Is there any sign she could be waking up?
Nurse: Sorry, there's been no change.
Meg: I swear I'm not keeping anything from you, Craig. I'm just being extra careful with this pregnancy.
Craig: So then why keep me out of the loop?
Meg: Because I know how paranoid you get. And if it was something serious, of course I would tell you. But in the meantime, why should I worry you for no good reason?
Craig: Look, I don't think you understand what would happen to me if we lost this baby. I will not let that happen.
Meg: Nothing's going to happen to this baby. The baby will be fine.
Craig: I hope so, but I'm going to talk to your doctor about this, just to be sure.
Lily: We used to have such a blast here, remember?
Dusty: I remember everything.
Lily: We were so young. We had no idea what was ahead of us.
Dusty: We still don't, but we didn't turn out so bad.
Lily: No, I know. I've had a wonderful life. Being married to Holden, my beautiful family. But look at us now.
Dusty: Stuff happens.
Lily: I know. Oh, I'm horrible. I have nerve talking about my life and you're -- been though so much yourself. You had such high hopes with Jennifer, and you lost her, and then losing Johnny so soon after that --
Dusty: If this is your best shot at good ole times, you're doing a horrible job.
Lily: You're right. You're absolutely right.
Dusty: We gotta change your frame of mind.
Lily: You're right.
Dusty: Right now!
Dusty: Can we do that?
Lily: Wow! That's still here! I can't believe it!
Dusty: Let's see if it still works.
[ďEvery time you go away" playing]
Lily: That's the song! Do you remember that song? That's the song that was playing at my mother's house. Remember that party? When we were kids. Oh, the '80s. Greatest hits, right?
Dusty: Just like us.
Bonnie: Mmm. Apple crumb is to die. How's your pecan?
Holden: It's good. Not as good as my mother's, but it's good. You know, I have to ask. Why would you want to come here? All that bad blood between you and Vienna.
Bonnie: I'm getting to like the place. Especially when miss thing isn't around, you know?
Holden: So what's the deal with you two, anyway?
Bonnie: Men love Vienna. With women, it's another story. We were just definitely in competition.
Holden: Who was on the losing side?
Bonnie: Okay, I didn't give up without a fight.
Holden: Relationships are tough when there's a third party involved. If Dusty Donovan hadn't been around, I think that Lily and I probably would have been able to make things work out. Sorry, I said that I was not going to mention you-know-who.
Bonnie: No problem.
Holden: So tell me, how are you adjusting to life in Oakdale?
Bonnie: After my divorce, I just needed a fresh start, so I came home. Now if I can just get my law practice off the ground, that'd be great.
Holden: Well, I can definitely recommend you.
Bonnie: Thanks. But eventually, I'd like to get out of family law. If I could just pick up a high-profile criminal case, I could really make a name for myself here in Oakdale. It's just, the trouble is, is my mom is a tough act to follow.
Holden: Well, I'm sure that you're going to make Jessica proud. You've got a lot going for you. It's only a matter of time before all the good things start to happen. You deserve it.
Bonnie: So do you, Holden.
Lily: This song -- oh this song. Always makes me cry.
Dusty: Where'd I take you everytime you cried?
Lily: Because a hot dog just does make you feel a little bit better. Although my mother did not approve of the cuisine.
Dusty: She didn't approve of a lot of things.
Lily: No, that's true. Rolling around in the hay with her stable boy was not her idea of a good thing. But let's not go there right now.
Dusty: Remember that time I took you dancing without her permission?
Lily: You know, you're going to burn in hell for that one. Underage, sneaking in, and the very sketchy location.
Dusty: She thought I was a bad boy.
Lily: Not much has changed, has it?
Dusty: This song's gotta change.
Lily: I know, it's killing me.
Dusty: Gotta go.
Lily: Something with a beat. Like something upbeat.
Dusty: Want to dance?
Lily: Sure. Why not?
[ďDancing in the dark" playing]
Dusty: I'm going to dip you.
Lily: You are?
Meg: Okay, fine. Fine. Find Dr. Bullock and ask him why I came to see him. Not only will you embarrass yourself by checking up on your wife, you will also confirm what I've been saying all along, that you don't trust me. We don't have much of a marriage without trust, do we?
Craig: Okay. Okay, I'll take you at your word. Just, you promise me that you and the baby are going to be all right.
Meg: You have nothing to worry about.
Craig: I'll get back to work, okay? I gotta find Bob. I'm trying to get him to green-light the lab here in the hospital.
Meg: Yeah, let me know how it goes.
Craig: It's not going to be long. Why don't you just wait for me? I'll drive you home, okay?
Meg: My car is in the garage. I'll go home on my own. In regards to Bob Hughes, I think you wasted your trip. I heard them say that he's over at the Lakeview with the hospital board. Something about a trustee retiring.
Craig: Okay, I'll try to catch up to him. I'll see you at home, okay? You take care of yourself, and our sweet little one, all right?
Paul: Hey, I spoke with Dr. Cutler. And he's going to try and help you, the way he helped you before. I'm going to go check and see if he's on his way, all right? I love you.
[Paul leaves the room. Rosanna opens her eyes]
Carly: Please don't make the children suffer for my mistake.
Jack: Living at the farm with me is not what I'd call suffering, Carly. They've got a routine there, they've got security there. They trust me.
Carly: Are you still planning to adopt Parker?
Jack: Of course. Why would I change my mind? I've been wanting to do that for a long time.
Carly: I just want you to think about what it means that you want to adopt my son. This family is important to you.
Jack: Of course it's important.
Carly: Then don't break us up. When you thought I was dying, you did everything you could to keep this family together because you knew it was the right thing to do. It still is. Jack, the kids lost me once before. Please don't put them through that again.
Jack: I didn't put them through that, you did. You could have gone to jail, but I stopped that from happening, too.
Carly: I know. I am grateful for that, Jack. I know I probably have no right to ask for another chance --
Jack: No, you had your last chance, Carly! Your last one, and you blew it. Now, you may not be going to jail, but I can and will take custody of those children because you're not fit to be a parent. J.J., Parker, Sage! Can you come down here? I'd like to tell you something.
Eli: It's open. Come on in. You can leave the specimen. I'll get to it later.
Meg: Um, Eli? It's me, Meg.
Eli: Oh, no, no. No, I can do it. Later. Wow, it is so great to see you.
Meg: It's been a long time, right? I'm sorry I've been a stranger, but I don't work here at the hospital anymore, which I'm sure you know.
Eli: Yeah, I didn't get an invite to the going-away party.
Meg: Well, there wasn't one. It wasn't really anything to celebrate.
Eli: Don't tell me. You need a favor.
Meg: How'd you guess?
Eli: Well, I do have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, but this was really a no-brainer. So what's the favor? I hope this time it doesn't involve bending any rules to get DNA results?
Meg: Yeah, funny you should mention that. No rule bending this time, but it is about DNA testing. And this time I know for sure who the mother is -- it's me.
Eli: Whoa -- I had no idea! Does that mean? [Whistles] You're married.
Meg: Yes, I am.
Eli: Should've seen that coming. Okay, let me go out on a limb here. You want to determine paternity. So if there's more than one possible father, obviously, you don't want your husband to know, right?
Craig: Bob, Bob, Bob.
Lucinda: Ahh! You looking for someone?
Craig: Yes, but not you.
Lucinda: I think I heard you say, "Ba-ba-ba Bob Bob." Bob left early. He had to go to the hospital. There was an emergency. We finished the party without him.
Craig: Oh, the party. Was the party for you? I mean, you do look ready to retire.
Lucinda: Yes, I'm tired, but not so tired that I can't count the days until your forced retirement from Worldwide or Montgomery Enterprises.
Craig: Okay, you know what? I really would love to just stand here and just trade insults with you, but I really do have to find Bob.
Lucinda: What is it, that is so urgent?
Craig: It's about that project I am working on with your step-grandson.
Lucinda: Do not call -- why are you calling him --
Craig: All right, fine. Okay, fine. Whatever he is to you, he's a potential Nobel Prize winner, if you ask me. And all that Bob has to do is give him a small research lab, and then kick back, relax and bask in reflected glory.
Lucinda: Okay, you don't need Bob for this. I can handle it as senior member of the board. I can give you the answer right now. It is no, 'cause it'll never happen!
[ďAgainst all odds" playing]
Dusty: What is it?
Lily: I'm sorry.
Dusty: Don't be sorry. What's wrong?
Lily: I'm just thinking about Holden.
Bonnie: You know, sometimes I just felt like I was naive for coming back home. I just thought I'd come back, and then cases would just start rolling in. But it's proving to be a lot harder than I thought.
Holden: Well, I would certainly hire you again. Hope I don't need a criminal attorney any time soon, and I certainly don't want to go through another divorce. I guess that means another marriage is probably not in the cards for me.
Bonnie: That's a shame. Great guys like you are rare, Holden. Lily was a fool to let you go.
Lily: I'm sorry.
Dusty: Nothing to be sorry.
Lily: No, we're supposed to be having a good time. I shouldn't be bringing us both down because my marriage imploded.
Dusty: It's all right. You gotta talk about it.
Lily: No, we donít. I don't want to talk about it. Holden's having a good time. Why shouldn't we?
Dusty: 'Cause, you know --
Dusty: That's how we are.
Dusty: We were always like this.
Lily: What? I fall apart, and you pick up the pieces?
Lily: Yes, yes. I have a fight with Holden. I go talk to you, I feel better. How many times have we done that in our lives?
Dusty: Old habits die hard, I guess.
Lily: The first time was at the carriage house. After I had that big fight with Holden. I came to cry on your shoulder, and the next thing we knew --
Dusty: That was a great night.
Lily: It was the first time I made love.
Paul: So now that you've been cleared to work at Memorial, you're going to take this case, right? Because you helped her before. And I know you can do it again.
Dr. Cutler: I can't guarantee that, Mr. Ryan.
Paul: Well, why can't you just give her what you gave her the last time?
Dr. Cutler: I'm sorry. Giving her the same drug again could be life-threatening.
Paul: So what can we do?
Dr. Cutler: I've ordered more tests to assess her neural function. When we get back the results, we'll have a better idea of what we can do.
Paul: So you can't tell me when she's going to wake up?
Dr. Cutler: Not with any certainty. Right now, our only hope is that she comes out of this on her own.
Meg: Okay, the baby is coming. The baby's coming, Paul. Promise you won't leave me.
Paul: I'm right here. I'm right here. And I'm not going to leave your side. I'm here every step of the way, all right? Just breathe, okay? Come here, come here.
Meg: Okay, okay.
Parker: What's up?
J.J.: Is Mom okay?
Jack: Okay, we are going to go live at the farm. So, I want you guys to go pack a couple things, okay?
Sage: But what about Mommy? Can she come, too?
Jack: She's going to stay here.
Sage: But she'll be lonely.
Jack: Honey, it's getting late. Will you please go pack a bag?
J.J.: Are we ever going to come back here?
Sage: We can't leave Mommy here.
Jack: Honey, we are going to live at the farm, and your mom's going to stay here. That's just the way it is. So go pack enough things for tomorrow. We'll come back for the rest.
Carly: You can have them until Thanksgiving. This is not permanent.
Jack: You're giving me ultimatums now?
Carly: I'm their mother. We will share custody.
Jack: Good luck with that.
Carly: I will take you to court. I will fight you! I'm not giving up my children!
Jack: You do whatever you need to do! But I guarantee you, it's not a fight you're going to win!
Jack: Does everybody have their clothes and their homework?
Parker: I'm all set, but J.J. left his math book upstairs on purpose so he'd have an excuse to come back.
J.J.: Shut up!
Parker: You shut up.
Jack: J.J., go get your math book, please. Please. Sage, Honey, where is your bag?
Sage: I don't want to go. We can't leave Mommy all alone!
Carly: Jack, let Sage stay with me for a little while. I'll help her pack her stuff. I'll have her over to the farm by bedtime.
Jack: Okay. I'll see you later, Honey, okay? You be good. J.J., come on, let's go.
Carly: You boys be good!
Sage: Don't be sad, Mommy.
Carly: I'm sorry, Babe. I'm just going to miss you all so much.
Sage: It's okay. Don't worry. I can help you get Daddy back.
Meg: I really need the DNA tests to be confidential.
Eli: Your files are protected, and I won't tell anyone. Scout's honor.
Meg: I trust you, Eli. You're a good friend. But just to be on the safe side, could you not mark the actual names on the paternity samples?
Eli: I was just about to input the data. We already ran the tests on the two hair samples. You want to use code names or what?
Meg: Just mark Craig Montgomery as husband. And mark the second sample "Other."
Eli: Got it. So which one is your money on? I mean, obviously, you're married and everything. But what about this other dude? Who's the lucky guy?
Meg: Just run the tests, Eli.
Paul: You've treated hundreds of cases like this before. You must have some kind of gut feeling on this. What do you think the chances are that Rosanna's gonna come out of this on her own?
Dr. Cutler: She does have certain factors working in her favor. She responded well to the experimental drug for a time. She's still young and healthy. If her will is strong enough, she may be able to pull through.
Paul: So what can we do to improve her odds?
Dr. Cutler: At this point, that may be up to you.
Carly: That's a nice picture, but Mom and Dad are not getting back together.
Sage: What about my wish? All I want for Christmas is for us to be a family again.
Carly: We are still a family.
Sage: But you and Daddy need to get married again.
Carly: That's not gonna happen, Honey. I did something very wrong, and Dad is very angry with me.
Sage: I know, but he has to forgive you. He always forgives you.
Carly: Not this time. You need to think up another Christmas wish, okay? I'm gonna go pack your things.
Sage: Don't worry, Mommy. I know how to get Daddy back.
Dusty: You were so beautiful that night.
Lily: Stop trying to make me feel better.
Dusty: I'm not. I thought you were perfect.
Lily: Well, I'm not that girl anymore. Even back then, I was far from perfect.
Dusty: I said I thought you were perfect. I was a kid. What did I know?
Lily: Not much, I guess.
Dusty: But one thing's for sure. You're as beautiful as ever.
Bonnie: I'm sorry. You just said not to talk about Lily, and what do I do?
Holden: That's okay. If you hadn't brought her up, I'm sure I would've found a way. For as long as I can remember, my first thought in the morning, and my last thought at night, was always about her. I'm not sure that that's a habit that I can change overnight.
Bonnie: Give it time. I mean, I know it's painful, but you'll get used to it.
Dallas: Hey, Bonnie, need a ride home? Sorry. Am I interrupting something?
Dusty: You're as beautiful as the night I beat up your date. Remember? I remember everything about that night.
Lily: Yeah, you were sweet. You defended me. I remember.
Dusty: I remember the light shining off your eyes.
Dusty: I could say I shouldn't have done that, but whatever.
Lily: Being here with you tonight, this feels right. I want to be with you again, like that night.
Dusty: We're not teenagers anymore.
Lily: Maybe we can be. Just one night. Just one.
Bonnie: Holden and I are just having a business meeting. He's a client.
Dallas: Meeting at Al's with pie? Yeah, that's one way to rack up those billable hours.
Holden: Bonnie was just trying to cheer me up, and I appreciate it very much. I gotta go. Gotta get home to my kids.
Bonnie: Just let me know when Lily signs those papers, huh?
Holden: I will, good night.
Bonnie: Yeah, take care of yourself.
Dallas: Okay. So what's really going on with you and Holden?
Bonnie: Nothing. It's just work, that's all.
Dallas: You were holding hands! You don't think it's a little soon to be putting the moves on the guy?
Lucinda: I do have some clout with the hospital board. And I will not allow them -- I will not allow the hospital laboratory to be used for the dubious research of Evan Walsh. I won't.
Craig: You do see what you're doing here, all right? You are allowing personal animus to get in the way of actual progress. That is really sad.
Lucinda: Whatís sad is you. All you want to do is line your pockets.
Craig: Okay, that's not good. That's really not very fair.
Lucinda: What's fair, using Lily and Lily's vulnerability? That's fair? When I vote "No" as a member of the hospital board, it will be for the sake of the hospital, for its name and its reputation.
Craig: You really have no heart, do you?
Craig: Okay, all right. Okay. You want to know why I'm doing this? It's for the child that Meg and I are having so that he or she can have a safer, healthier future. I would like that to be my legacy.
Lucinda: After I throw up, let me just say that you stole my legacy, so you cannot expect help from me for yours.
Dr. Cutler: You were instrumental in bringing her out of the coma the first time. You were willing to do anything, even pose as her ex-husband.
Paul: I really am her husband now.
Dr. Cutler: I'm sure you were both looking forward to a long, happy and healthy life together. My advice is that you spend as much time as possible reminding Rosanna of that. Let her know you need her to get well again.
Paul: Okay, I'll do that.
Dr. Cutler: I'll go check on those tests.
Paul: Hey. I need you to come back to me. I just got an idea, and I'll be right back, okay? I'll be back soon.
Meg: Isn't she beautiful?
Paul: She sure is. She's our little girl!
Carly: All right, Sage, you ready? Sage? Hey, Sage, are you ready? Where did you go?! Ohh.
[Cell phone ringing]
Carly: Hi Jack, it's me.
Jack: When are you bringing Sage over?
Carly: I canít. She's gone.
Carly: Thanks for coming so quickly.
Jack: I swear to God, Carly, if this is another one of your tricks --
Carly: It's not a trick, Jack. She's gone. I found this note.
Jack: It's supposed to be a ransom note. Obviously, she wrote this herself.
Carly: She wants to get our attention, but who knows where she went, Jack? It's dark. She's a little girl. We have to find her.
Bonnie: You're a real pig. And not only that, you have a dirty mind.
Bonnie: Okay, I'm not putting the moves on Holden. I was trying to be his friend.
Bonnie: Do you even know what that is? Oh, that's right. You have no friends.
Dallas: I play gin with the guys once a week.
Bonnie: Okay, how come I'm never invited. Okay, what are you afraid, I'm gonna win the who's-gonna-get-a-life-first bet?
Dallas: No, no. See, question is, how far are you willing to go to win?
Bonnie: I guarantee I'll beat the pants off you, but not by hooking up with Holden. He's a client, period. And no matter what he says, he's still hopelessly in love with his wife.
Lily: Hello, you've reached the Snyder residence. Leave a message, and we'll get back to you.
Lily: Thanks for bringing me back here.
Dusty: We couldn't sleep in Mabelís.
Lily: I didn't say anything.
Dusty: Are you regretting what we did?
Lily: No. Not at all. I won't pretend it didn't happen, and I'm not sorry.
Dusty: Nor am I.
Lily: Do you mind if I stay here tonight? Because I have no one to go home to.
Dusty: Lily, you're never alone. You have me.
Carly: No sign of her?
Jack: Not a trace.
[Rosanna wakes up]
Rosanna: Oh no -- I can't let that happen!
[Rosanna disconnects the pads on her chest and gets out of bed]
[Machine beeping faster]
Lucinda: By the way -- by the way, if you think that a mere baby is going to ensure your legacy, honey, with your track record with children, you can just kiss that legacy good-bye. It can be taken from you.
Meg: Eli, any news?
Eli: I've been looking for you, Meg. The preliminary results will be in soon.
Meg: And I'll finally know who my baby's father is.
On the next "As the World Turns."
Sophie: You help me find the couple that wants to adopt my baby.
Gwen: The thing is, I would just feel a lot better if I could just meet the mom.
Carly: So when we find her, when she comes back, would you give me a chance to make this up to her?
Meg: I know you want to feel responsible about what happened to Rosanna, but it doesn't change the fact that this baby I'm carrying could be yours.
