Noah: Okay, one more. Got to work off that Hubbard squash, right? Hey, come on, that was funny.

Luke: I'm -- I'm sorry. I'm just -- I'm just a little zoned.

Noah: Yeah, I noticed. Is everything okay?

Luke: Yeah. Yeah, I just have a lot on my mind.

Noah: Do you want to talk about it?

[Noah goes outside]

Luke: I told him I loved him.

Holden: Did you mean it?

Luke: Yeah. Yeah, but I -- I guess he doesn't feel the same way. I think I said enough.

Noah: Well, if you change your mind -- you know you can tell me anything, right? You're not going to scare me off.

Lily: Bonnie? Hi.

Bonnie: Lily.

Lily: Hi.

Bonnie: Hi.

Lily: Tough day in the courtroom?

Bonnie: Yeah, just this personal injury case and the client is so obnoxious. I just want to hurt him myself, just slap him with one of those accordion files.

Lily: Well, then the drink is on me.

Bonnie: No, Lily.

Lily: Oh, please. You're Lisa's goddaughter -- my husband's divorce attorney. It's the least I can do.

Noah: You know, I don't think these exercises are challenging you enough. You barely broke a sweat.

Luke: What, you're some sort of doctor? You go to med school between sets?

Noah: No, I just know everything.

Luke: Okay, so it's not challenging enough. Any ideas?

Noah: One, but I don't think you're going to like it.

Luke: Hit me, Doc.

Noah: What do you say we take this public?

Lily: Your mother must be so happy that you're back here, working at her firm.

Bonnie: I think so. She calls 15 times a day. The one time was just to tell me where she hides her good pens.

Lily: Oh, that's good. Now that you're here, though, is Isaac going to relocate from Florida?

Bonnie: Oh, no. I thought Lisa would've told you.

Lily: No --

Bonnie: Isaac and I got divorced.

Lily: Oh. Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.

Bonnie: Lily, I just need to say this. I feel awful about you and Holden. You two are the last couple I ever thought would need me.

Lily: Oh. I don't need you. Holden needs you. I have my own attorney.

Bonnie: I just don't want to see this situation turn bitter.

Holden: Bonnie, hey, I've been looking for you Ė

Will: This thing is heavier than it looks.

Gwen: I know. That's why I had you carry it. I'm not a dummy.

Will: No, you're not. Come here, Miss Smarty-pants.

Barbara: Oh, I barely got out of that store alive. You found the perfect Christmas tree?

Gwen: Yeah.

Barbara: I found the perfect present. And I know it's not quite Christmas, but I want to give it to you. Now here anyway. So here.

Gwen: Oh, cool.

Barbara: It's for the baby. It's an ornament. Because I thought it would be lovely if you had something to put on your perfect Christmas tree for our newest family member.

Gwen: That would be -- that would be great, Barbara, if we had a baby. But that's not definite yet.

Barbara: Why are you thinking that way, Honey?

Gwen: Because birth mothers can have second thoughts. You know, what if she changes her mind?

Barbara: She wonít.

Will: But how do you know that?

Barbara: Why are you thinking -- Will?

Will: No, I'm not. I just -- I see where Gwen's coming from. We've had a lot of disappointments and I just don't know how you can be so sure that it's going to work out this time.

Barbara: Because it is.

Aaron: What do you got there?

Sofie: This?

Aaron: Mm-hmm.

Sofie: It's -- it's just a hat I made for the baby. It's kind of cute, right?

Aaron: Yeah. No, it's very cute. Very, very cute. But how are you going to give it to the baby? I mean, I thought this was a closed adoption. Did Cole change his mind?

Cole: What's it going to take, Snyder, if you just mind your own damn business?

Barbara: I spoke to my attorney this morning. He's drawing up the papers as we speak. There is nothing to worry about, believe me.

Gwen: I'm sorry. I just need a minute to myself.

[Gwen goes outside]

Alison: Hey, don't tell me the stores are that bad already.

Gwen: No, it's just Barbara.

Alison: Ah, say no more. Is she driving you nuts with holiday cheer?

Gwen: No, it's -- she's buying presents already for the baby and -- I don't know, I just feel like its bad luck or something.

Alison: The baby? What baby?

Gwen: The baby Will and I are adopting.

Aaron: Relax. Okay, I'm just asking a question.

Cole: Yeah, I'm getting real tired of you just asking questions. What is that?

Sofie: It's a hat. I made it for the baby.

Cole: Sofie, we can't have any contact with the kid. That was part of the deal. I've gone out of my way to keep it that way. You start doing stuff like this, you're going to ruin everything!

Sofie: I don't understand. When you say you've been going out of your way to make this work, what exactly have you been doing?

Cole: Nothing. And that's what you should be doing too, but you're sitting here knitting hats and talking to him.

Aaron: Do you want to take it down a notch?

Cole: This is a closed adoption, Sofie. That means no contact, no presents, no nothing! You understand me?

Gwen: So after Will and I found out that we couldn't adopt through an agency, Barbara contacted this lawyer, Gary Bradshaw, to handle a private adoption for us.

Alison: And he's found you a baby?

Gwen: That's -- that's what he says.

Alison: Gwen, oh my God! Congratulations!

Gwen: Thank you. I'm just -- I'm really nervous that the mother is going to change her mind at the last minute.

Alison: So, maybe you can talk to her and try to get a feel for how she's doing.

Gwen: I would like that, but the mother's insisting on a closed adoption. She doesn't want to have any kind of contact with us.

Aaron: Sofie spent a lot of time making that hat.

Cole: Don't --

Aaron: Don't touch me.

Sofie: Aaron, stop, okay? Cole's right. I shouldn't have made the hat. It was stupid.

Aaron: No, no it wasn't stupid --

Sofie: Yes, it was --

Aaron: Sofie, if you don't want to do this --

Sofie: Yes, it was. I'm just making things more complicated than they need to be. We both agreed to a closed adoption. And we have to keep up our end of the bargain.

Gwen: The baby is going to be here soon, though. I mean, the mother is in her third trimester.

Alison: Third trimester? Wow, you're really starting to show.

Sofie: Thanks.

Will: Hey, you can come back now. Mom's gone. Hey, Alison.

Alison: Hey.

Gwen: I just -- I just told Alison about the adoption.

Will: Oh, you did?

Gwen: Yeah.

Will: It's pretty amazing, isn't it?

Alison: Yeah. Yeah. Amazing.

Holden: I got your voicemail. Your office told me that you were here.

Bonnie: Yeah, it was just a clerical issue, it could've been -- [Cell phone rings] Would you excuse me? Thanks. Hey, Dallas.

Lily: Clerical issues can be very tricky.

Holden: Oh, yeah. So, this Saturday, it's the holiday fair -- school fair.

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Holden: Girls would love it if you could be there.

Lily: I have it on my calendar already.

Holden: Well, good. Hopefully you won't have to work this weekend.

Luke: Wow, I haven't been here since --

Noah: Halloween?

Luke: Well, I was going to say the day that I fell, but Halloween -- that sounds nicer.

Noah: Yeah, much better. Here, let me get this for you.

Luke: No, no, leave it. So you say I need new challenges?

Noah: Um.

Luke: What do you think about that?

Noah: I'm pretty much blown away.

Luke: Great. That means that I get a reward. And I chose hot chocolate with the most whipped cream.

Noah: Are you kidding? After that, you can have anything you want.

Ben: Noah, hey.

Noah: Hey, Guys.

Greg: You coming tonight?

Noah: Tonight?

Ben: Yeah. Fake I.D. party at Yo's.

Noah: Oh, I -- I don't know.

Greg: It's going to be a blowout. You both should come. I'm Greg, by the way.

Noah: Oh, sorry. You guys say party, my mind just goes blank. This is Greg and Ben, from my Mass-Comm class.

Luke: Hi, nice to meet you.

Noah: This is my -- friend, Luke.

Lily: If by work, you're referring to Dusty --

Holden: I'm just calling it what you did, when you told the kids you had to leave early on Thanksgiving.

Bonnie: Fine, forget it. Sorry about that.

Holden: Everything okay?

Bonnie: Yeah, Dallas and I were supposed to play basketball, but he just bailed.

Holden: You seem pretty bummed.

Bonnie: Yeah, it's this little thing we're trying to have called a life, and we're in a race to see who's going to get one first.

Holden: Yeah, who's winning?

Bonnie: Not me. Anyway, I should get going.

Holden: Hold on. You said something about a clerical issue?

Bonnie: Oh, Holden, it can --

Holden: No, no, no, just tell me what it is.

Bonnie: I just wanted to see if you'd given Lily the separation papers.

Lily: He has, but I'm not signing them until my attorney looks them over. No offense.

Cole: I'm sorry.

Sofie: Why did you get so mad at me?

Cole: No, I'm not mad at you, Sof. This -- this freaks me out. You know, what we're doing. I just -- I want it to be over with. Once we get out to L.A., everything will be better. I promise.

Gary: Hey, I'm so glad I found you guys. I have something for you. All right.

Sofie: What's this?

Gary: It's your adoption agreement.

Alison: Oh, Barbara!

Barbara: Alison, I'm very tired. I just want to go upstairs and relax.

Alison: You canít. Not yet. I have to talk to you about the baby. About Will and Gwen's baby.

Noah: You didn't want to go to the party?

Luke: No, I'm not surprised that you didn't want to go. I mean, your friends seem -- what's the word? Friendly?

Noah: Okay, I get it.

Luke: You do?

Noah: Yeah. You're upset because I called you my friend in front of them.

Luke: Well, should I be? Is that all we are?

Noah: No, you're my --

Luke: What? What, what? I can't -- I can't hear you.

Noah: You're my boyfriend.

Luke: Yeah, I am. In private. When it's just the two of us and nobody can hear you say it.

Noah: Hey, I don't have to say something out loud for it to be true.

Luke: Yeah, but -- let me ask you something. Your new friends at school, do they know?

Noah: That I'm gay? I don't know.

Luke: Well, have you told them?

Noah: It's not exactly the first thing I say to someone when I meet them.

Luke: Yeah, but Noah, you just don't say it at all.

Noah: So what? That doesn't mean that they don't know. I mean, they asked us both to go to the party. So it's pretty obvious to me they assume that we're together. Look, I'm here with you. I'm holding your hand. I know that people are looking at us, I know what they see. And I know what they're thinking. I'm not hiding you.

Sofie: I'm not signing these.

Cole: You have to.

Sofie: No, I donít.

Will: Hey, what do you think? Does this look right?

Gwen: Uh, yeah.

Will: This part is kind of lop-sided over here, but I figure once we get some stuff on it, it won't look so bad. Seems like a good reason to open up Mom's present. You want to?

Gwen: No. Not really.

Alison: Look, I just need to say this first. I know that we haven't always gotten along.

Barbara: Oh, that's a bit of an understatement.

Alison: Right. But I just -- I need you to know that I would never want to cause problems for Will and Gwen, okay? I want them to be happy and have a family just as much as you do.

Barbara: Okay. Fine. What is it?

Alison: There's something not right about this adoption.

Barbara: What do you mean, "Not right?"

Alison: Okay, this is going to sound really out there, but I think that the baby Will and Gwen are waiting for might be the same one Gwen's brother and his girlfriend are putting up for adoption.

Gary: No, Sofie's right, Cole. Legally, she can't sign the adoption papers until after the baby's born. I just wanted Sofie to take a look at them beforehand so she could see that everything was in order. So, no second thoughts?

Cole: Nope.

Sofie: Mr. Bradshaw, I have something I want to give to you, too. For the baby, I mean. Would you make sure the adoptive parents get this?

Gary: I don't know if that's a good idea --

Sofie: Please? Please, please, please. Our baby may never know us. But if some day, someone said to him that this hat -- that this little -- little thing came from us, it would mean so much to me.

Gary: I'll see what I can do.

Luke: Noah, I have to say something.

Noah: Okay.

Luke: Look, first off, I know that you're not trying to hide me. And I should've apologized for that earlier, so I'm sorry. But can I be honest with you about something?

Noah: What? Like you've ever held back with me before?

Luke: I just feel like -- like I say things that you don't say. Or you haven't said, or you can't say --

Noah: Like what?

Luke: Like -- like when we were at the police station, and I said how I felt about you. And maybe that was the wrong time or it was the wrong place or something. So I'm sorry.

Noah: No. No, don't be sorry, Luke. What you said was great. And I -- well, you know that -- I don't want you to take it back. Okay?

Barbara: Do you realize what you're saying is --

Alison: It's insane, right?

Barbara: Yes, it is. And yet, you're going around talking to people about this?

Alison: No. No, no, no. I mean, for one thing, I didn't even know Will and Gwen were adopting until tonight.

Barbara: Uh-huh. And yet, you jumped to the conclusion that the baby is her brother's girlfriend's?

Alison: Well, there are a lot of similarities here, that's all.

Barbara: Such as?

Alison: Well, Will and Gwen are doing the adoption through a lawyer, right? A closed adoption. And the birth mother's in her third trimester.

Barbara: So?

Alison: So, Cole and Sofie are also doing a closed adoption. And through a lawyer, too. And Sofie's in her third trimester.

Barbara: You know that Sofie's in her third trimester?

Alison: Only because I work at the hospital. I was there when she came in, I saw the chart --

Barbara: Okay, okay, okay, I hear you. Listen to me. I hired that lawyer. I've been involved every step of the way. So when I tell you this, you believe it. There is no way that's the same baby. Do you understand me?

Holden: Mama took the girls into town for dinner, so it looks like it's just you and me tonight. Saw Noah leaving as I was coming in from the barn.

Luke: Yeah, he went to a frat party.

Holden: And you didn't want to go?

Luke: No, I wanted to go.

Holden: Why didn't you?

Luke: Well, for once, it wasn't this. These guys came up to us in Old Town and asked if we wanted to go to the party, and Noah introduced me as his friend.

Holden: Well, you are friends, aren't you?

Luke: No. No, he's my boyfriend, Dad. There's a difference. And he should be able to say it.

Holden: You know, I'm not taking sides here, but I think you need to be patient with Noah. This is all very new to him.

Luke: I get that. I get that. Really, I do. It's just -- when he only acknowledges things halfway, it drives me crazy. Just now, I brought up that thing I had told you about. You know, how I -- how I told him that I loved him at the police station and he didn't say anything.

Holden: And?

Luke: And he didn't say anything. Again.

Holden: He didn't say anything at all? I find that hard to believe.

Luke: I mean, he said something, but I guess I just kind of dismissed it.

Holden: What was that?

Luke: He said he doesn't have to say something for it to be true.

Noah: Hi.

Dusty: Hey, what's going on? What are you doing here?

Noah: Oakdale U fake I.D. frat party.

Dusty: Guess that explains it.

Noah: It's kind of pointless, since they don't even card at the door.

Dusty: Are you drunk?

Noah: No. You don't have anything to worry about.

Dusty: Good, let's keep it that way.

Noah: So, you sticking around?

Dusty: No. No, I'm just settling up. Getting out of here. Go have fun with your friends.

Noah: See ya later.

Dusty: See ya.

Stacy: Hey, you want to dance?

Noah: I'm gay.

Stacy: I'm Stacy. And you still really didn't answer my question.

Noah: You don't mind that I'm gay?

Stacy: Not as long as you can dance.

Dusty: Maybe we shouldn't have done that.

Lily: Why?

Dusty: Because we're not alone.

[Dusty points over to Noah]

Barbara: After everything that Will and Gwen have been through, I don't think they need you running around looking for trouble where there is none, so drop this.

Alison: I don't want this to be true anymore than you do. But don't you think you can maybe, I don't know, call the lawyer or something? Just to be 100% positive that I'm wrong about this.

Barbara: Okay, I will call my lawyer. And I will confirm that everything that I told you is true. All right?

Alison: Thank you. And thanks for listening to me.

Barbara: Let's just keep this to ourselves, all right?

Lily: Noah was here?

Dusty: Yeah, it's college night. I don't see him now. Maybe he left.

Lily: Was Luke here?

Dusty: No, he's alone.

Lily: Oh, thank God. I mean, if Luke had seen us --

Dusty: Well, if that's how you feel, maybe we should reconsider what we're doing.

Barbara: We have a problem. Alison Stewart is figuring out what's going on here.

Iris: That little blonde girl?

Barbara: Yes. Somehow, she has information about your son's adoption plans.

Iris: Hey! Cole knows how to keep his mouth shut.

Barbara: Even around the little blonde girl?

Iris: Stupid --

Barbara: You have got to cut this off at the pass. If anyone else catches on that the baby that Gwen and Will is adopting is really Sofie and Cole's, we're going to be in big trouble.

Iris: What do you want me to do?

Barbara: I want you to get Cole and Sofie out of town. Immediately. Without arousing suspicion. The further away they are when she has the baby, the better.

Iris: Well, you know, they were supposed to go to L.A. I suppose I could really try and push them, but Babs, relocating -- it ain't cheap, Honey.

Barbara: Just make it happen. And Iris? If this whole deal backfires -- you won't see one penny more out of me. Am I clear?

Cole: Your fries are getting cold. [Cell phone ringing] Hello?

Iris: We need to talk. You alone?

Cole: No, and I'm eating. Later, okay?

Iris: No, not later. Now!

Cole: Why?

Iris: Well, Cole, Sweetie -- well, I'm here with Babs. And she's giving me the evil eye. So no questions asked. Just ditch the girl, ditch the food and get over here, all right?

Noah: What -- what are you doing here?

Luke: I'm the bouncer. Can I check your I.D.? Look, you're not going to make me apologize in front of my dad, are you?

Noah: You came here to apologize?

Holden: Excuse me, can I just say something? I have serious reservations about you guys hanging out at Yoís.

Luke: Dad --

Holden: Luke, you're both underage. You shouldn't be drinking, especially you.

Luke: I'm not going to drink. And I don't think you have to worry about Noah. Everybody knows you can't drink and wheel somebody around in a wheelchair. You might bump into walls.

Holden: Oh, very funny.

Noah: Seriously, I was just leaving anyway, the party's kind of lame.

Stacy: You coming back inside to finish that dance?

Noah: No, I uh -- I'm going to be taking off, sorry.

Stacy: Okay. Well, have a good night.

Noah: You, too.

Lily: I am not ashamed to be with you. I just wanted to go somewhere where no one knows who I am. Because I'm tired of people weighing in on what I do.

Dusty: What are you doing?

Lily: What I want to do.

Dusty: You sure about that? Because it's starting to feel like we're sneaking around.

Lily: No -- no, that's not what we're doing. Holden does know what we're doing. But my kids donít. And I should not have to explain my personal life to them.

Dusty: Well, if Noah saw us, you're going to have to explain something to someone.

Holden: So, is it okay if I take off?

Noah: Oh, it's okay. I'll take him home.

Luke: Yeah, yeah, go Dad.

Holden: All right. I'll see you later. Be safe, Guys.

Noah: So, you ready to go home?

Luke: Don't you want to go in?

Noah: No, it's really lame in there. Seriously, it's a train wreck, that party.

Luke: What? You don't want to been with a kid in a wheelchair?

Noah: No, that's not it at all.

Luke: So, do you want to go dance with that girl in front of me?

Noah: What does she have -- she knows I'm gay.

Luke: Really?

Noah: Really. She asked me to dance before and I said, "I'm gay."

Luke: Well, I guess I am never going to understand you.

Noah: Probably not.

Luke: So, why don't you want to go in? Just tell me.

Noah: Your mom's in there. With Dusty Donovan.

Cole: I'm telling you, I don't know any Alison Stewart.

Iris: Come on. She's petite. She's blonde. She yammer, yammer, yammers. She's a friend of your sisterís.

Cole: I don't know her. Honest.

Iris: You are so much like your dad sometimes -- I guess that's why I love you so much. All right, so here's the skinny, Buckaroo. It seems that Alison is starting to figure things out, and well, that's kind of freaking out Barbie, which is freaking me out. So you and Sofie have got to go.

Cole: Go? Where are we supposed to go?

Iris: L.A. like we planned.

Cole: What? No way! Ma, Sofie was never supposed to go to L.A. with me.

Iris: Yeah, and I wasn't supposed to be a grandma for another 10 to 20 years, but I'm dealing.

Cole: If I have take her out there with me, things are only going to get worse. She knitted the baby a hat, Ma. This kid's real to her.

Iris: You want to know what's real? The trouble we're going to get into if we get caught and this thing blows up in our faces.

Luke: She was kissing him?

Noah: Yeah.

Luke: I can't believe this.

Noah: I'm sorry. I didn't want to tell you.

Luke: No, no, no, it's good that you told me.

Noah: You okay?

Luke: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. I was just -- just holding out a little bit of hope.

Noah: Do you want to get out of here?

Cole: Good, you're still here. I have the best news.

Sofie: What?

Cole: Remember my friend? The one in the music business with all the connections? He finally came through. He's got a solid lead on a job for me.

Sofie: Oh, my God, Cole! Cole, that's so amazing!

Cole: I know, I know. It's not 100%, but the job's as good as mine. There's one catch -- it's in L.A. and if I want it, we have to leave tonight.

Sofie: Tonight? Come on, Cole, we can't -- we can't afford to just up and move to L.A. right this second.

Cole: No, it's cool. I told you, my mom's helping me out. She's getting the money together right now.

Sofie: Cole, wait. If Iris has all this money she's willing to give us, and you already have a job out there, doesn't this mean we get to keep the baby?

Lily: What are you doing here, Luke?

Luke: Surprised?

Lily: A little.

Luke: Well, I bet you would've been more surprised a couple minutes ago when Dad dropped me off.

Lily: Your father was here?

Luke: Yeah. He was a little bit nervous about leaving me and Noah here, but I bet he would've felt so much better if he knew that you were inside with your boyfriend.

Lily: Luke, this is not what you think.

Luke: This is exactly what I think.

Lily: I'm not going to have this conversation here with you right now.

Luke: Why? Because you don't think I deserve an explanation? You know what? I don't even need one. I know exactly what's going on.

Lily: Luke, this is my personal business.

Luke: And it's my family that you're destroying.

Cole: Sofie, you have to stop doing this.

Sofie: Doing what? I just asked --

Cole: -- If we can keep the baby. We can't. The decision is final. We can't go back on it.

Sofie: But if you have a job --

Cole: I think so, yeah, but I still gotta go out there and make sure the situation's right. Plus, we have to find a place to live, get the lay of the land. I mean, there's still a lot of adjustments. And a lot of opportunities in L.A. that we can't go after if we have a kid. You know that.

Sofie: I know, but --

Cole: I want you to be happy. You know that I do. And if things work out for us in L.A. the way that I think it will, then we can have kids some day. Lots of 'em.

Sofie: Just not this one.

Cole: Sofie, please don't look at it this way. Please. I really want this for us. Tell me that you do, too.

Lily: Dusty and I -- we didn't happen until your father ended our marriage. And I don't -- I don't know what to say. I just -- I just needed someone to be there for me. Can you understand that?

Luke: No, I can't! Because basically, you're telling me that you had an affair.

Lily: It isn't -- no, it's not an affair.

Luke: Well, then what would you call it?

Lily: I don't know.

Luke: Does Dad know?

Lily: Yes.

Alison: Yeah, you should know I ran into Will and Gwen tonight. Gwen said they're adopting a baby.

Aaron: Really?

Alison: Aaron, they're doing a closed adoption.

Aaron: And you know this for a fact?

Alison: Yeah. I also know that the birth mother is in her third trimester.

Aaron: Just like Sofie. You don't think -- no --

Alison: I don't know. As soon as I found out, I went to Barbara. She's the one who got them the lawyer who's handling this whole thing.

Aaron: What'd she say?

Alison: She said that I'm crazy and a troublemaker. But then she calmed down and she said she would call the lawyer just to make sure that I was wrong.

Aaron: Good.

Alison: But if it is, Barbara's never going to let them adopt Sofie and Cole's kid. There's just no way.

Gwen: Hey, I thought I smelled popcorn. Is it for the tree?

Will: Oh, yeah.

Gwen: You know, I was thinking, ever since we met, you've always been the optimistic one. You know, you'd always tell me not to worry that things were going to be okay, that things would work out. And even if they didn't, you'd always do everything you could to make me feel better. So maybe it's about time I started doing the same thing for you. Which is why -- I was thinking it would be a really good idea to open this.

[Gwen opens the ornament box]

Will: Okay.

Gwen: Wow. It's really beautiful.

Will: Yeah, Mom's good got taste.

Gwen: No. Our baby's grandmother has spectacular taste.

Luke: So Faith was right on Thanksgiving? You weren't going to work. You were going to go see Dusty.

Lily: I did leave to see Dusty. Yes.

Luke: And you lied to all of us.

Lily: Faith is a child. There is no way she could understand what's going on.

Luke: Yeah, but you could've told me.

Lily: She was there right next to you!

Luke: I might've understood. I might have helped you feel less lonely.

Lily: I'm sorry.

Luke: No. No, Mom, you're not! Because you just tried to lie to me again!

Lily: I was caught off guard. That's all.

Luke: No, you were just caught. God, I'm beginning to understand what Dad's going through.

Lily: Please don't say that.

Luke: If being with Dusty is worth lying to all of us, then maybe you should just stay with him.

Aaron: Sofie -- what are you doing here?

Sofie: I came to say good-bye.

Lily: Are you saying that you don't want to see me again?

Luke: No, Mom, I'm not -- I'm not kicking you out of my life. But it's pretty clear that you've made your choice. And as long as you can't be honest about it, I don't want to be around that.

Lily: Luke --

Luke: Mom, lying about who you want to be with -- it's just not worth it.

Holden: You're not popping your wrists enough.

Bonnie: Really? What does a born-and-raised farm boy know about shooting hoops?

Holden: Well, my son plays. Played, in high school.

Bonnie: Yeah, I didn't.

Holden: I'm sure you're a fast learner.

Bonnie: Yeah, I try. So, what are you doing here?

Holden: Well, you told me that Dallas couldn't make it, I thought maybe I'd come by -- I thought maybe we could play a little one-on-one.

Bonnie: With you?

Holden: Yeah, why not?

Bonnie: Well, you know, Dallas didn't show up because he doesn't like getting beat by a girl, right?

Holden: Oh, yeah, I figured it was something like that.

Bonnie: Okay. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Holden: What you got?

Bonnie: Ooh. Yeah.

Holden: Pretty good. Okay.

Bonnie: Come on.

Holden: Ah. Ah! I am not going to lose to you.

Bonnie: Here we go. Here we go. Here we go. Here we go. Here we go --

[Laughter]

Sofie: Cole got a call about a job in L.A., and if he wants it, we have to leave tonight.

Aaron: That's crazy.

Sofie: Aaron, I have to go. I can't say no. I mean, this -- this could be Cole's big break. And we were headed there anyway, so --

Aaron: Sofie, please don't -- don't.

Sofie: I have to. You know why. I'll never forget you. You've been a really great friend.

Cole: Hand it over. The money Barbara gave you to get us to L.A.

Iris: Oh, right. Of course, so silly of me. There you go, Sweetie.

Cole: Mom.

Iris: Fine. Fine. Fine. Here you go. Oh, look at -- there she is. Just look at you, Sweetie. Ooh, you're just all -- excited to go to L.A., huh? Yeah, my boy here -- boy, he is going to be a big shot, huh?

Sofie: Yeah.

Iris: And you know, Sweetie, it's going to be much easier for you, you not having the baby here and everything. It really is. All righty then. Well, since you're both leaving tonight, you better go on and get packed, okay? So go. Bye-bye. You better not mess this up.

Alison: Hey, I got your voicemail. What's wrong? You sounded upset.

Aaron: You're not going to believe this. Okay, Cole and Sofie? They're leaving town. Tonight. For L.A.

Alison: So? Wasn't that the plan?

Aaron: Yeah, after the baby was born. But then out of the blue, Cole gets a phone call, and now they have to leave tonight.

Alison: When did this happen?

Aaron: After I talked to you.

Alison: Which is right after I talked to Barbara -- who was going to call the lawyer.

Aaron: Yup. Still think this is all just some big coincidence?

Gwen: Hey. You can't put that on there yet.

Will: Why not? You hungry?

Gwen: Ha, ha, very funny. No, I was thinking we should put something else on there first. Like -- like this. In fact, I'm going to make a new rule.

Will: You are?

Gwen: Yes. From now on, we always put our baby's ornament on first.

Will: I like the way you think.

Gwen: Great.

Alison: Something's not adding up here.

Aaron: I know. I feel real bad for Sofie. She's getting really attached to this baby. You should've seen her. She knitted this little green hat with a dog on it.

Alison: What about Will and Gwen? They're getting attached, too. Aaron, if this is the same baby, we need to find out. Now.

On the next "As the World Turns"

Alison: What a sweet little hat.

Gary: One of my birth mothers made that for her baby.

Cole: We have a problem.

Barbara: What's wrong?

Aaron: You've got to shut up.

Gwen: It's about the baby, isn't it?

Katie: I can't hurt this much ever again.

Carly: All is forgiven. Jack?

Parker: Brad's not doing nothing.

Katie: Why do you have a picture of our -- that house?

Brad: I just bought it.
