Will: It's okay. We didn't jinx anything by putting it on the tree.

[Knock at the door]

Gwen: Hey, could you get that?

Will: Hey.

Barbara: Hi. I just wanted to let you know that the adoption papers have been delivered.

Gwen: Yeah?

Barbara: Yeah. And that the birth mother is going to sign them as soon as the baby -- oh, Honey. Thank you.

[Alison puts a pillow under her shirt to pretend she’s pregnant]

Aaron: Back up, back up. You're lopsided.

Alison: Boy, I really hope my mother doesn't come walking in.

Aaron: Are you sure you want to go through with this?

Alison: Well, I think it's the only way we're going to find out what Cole and Sofie are up to.

Aaron: She's not up to anything, I think that's Cole and Barbara's department.

Alison: Well, I sure have a good feeling about this lawyer. Trusted him as soon as he said we should meet in a bar instead of his office.

Aaron: Well, I've got to go and try to keep Sofie from leaving town, okay?

Alison: Okay, okay. God, poor girl. I'm not even really pregnant, I already feel sad myself.

Aaron: Yeah, I don't get her. I mean, after all the times he's let her down, she still trusts a jerk like Cole.

Cole: Sofie, our bus leaves in 20 minutes. We don't even have our tickets yet.

Sofie: I'm sorry.

Cole: Don't be sorry, just move it.

Sofie: Cole! I can't -- I can't do it.

Barbara: It's like you really believe this is going to happen.

Gwen: Yeah.

Barbara: But just a little while ago, you were worried about everything.

Gwen: I was. But seeing you in the doorway just now -- I realized I could trust you.

Alison: Would you stay where I put you?

Gary: Miss Stewart? Hi, I'm Gary Bradshaw. Do you mind if I sit down?

Alison: No. Please. Hi.

Gary: Hi. Wow, you're a very pretty young woman. I bet you're going to have a beautiful baby.

Alison: Thank you.

Gary: What I'm saying is, is this. I don't think we're going to have any trouble finding your baby a wonderful home. You've got nothing to worry about.

Carly: Hey, Kit? Dinner's ready.

[Doorbell rings]

Carly: Hi.

Delivery guy: Where do you want this?

Carly: I did not order that nice beer.

Delivery guy: Looks like you've got an admirer.

Carly: Hmm, thank you. [Carly reads the note] All is forgiven. Jack?

Margo: So, Katie was right. You're not ready to let go.

Jack: No. I'm not.

Kit: Where'd that come from?

Carly: It's Jack's favorite beer. The card says, "All is forgiven."

Kit: You think he's trying to make up?

Carly: Hmm, I think we should check the beer for arsenic.

Kit: Let me see that. Oh Honey, this beer ain't for you. It's for me.

Brad: Don't freak out, okay?

Katie: Isn't that my decision?

Brad: I just thought you could use something to help cheer you up after yesterday's drama.

Katie: It is beautiful. This is from Brad. He was too shy to give it to you himself. Call him.

Brad: That was mean.

Katie: She knew I was kidding.

Brad: Mean to me.

Katie: Oh, really? Guess I'm about as concerned for your feelings as you were for mine.

Brad: You said you forgave me.

Katie: Doesn't mean I'm just going to forget what happened. Okay, here's a rundown of tomorrow's show. You can do that one alone.

Brad: I guess something needs my special expertise. How to save a marriage.

Margo: I told Katie from the very beginning, you had this unusual connection to Carly. And you would think after this last stunt --

Jack: I meant I'm not giving up on Katie.

Margo: Oh.

Jack: It's just -- it's going to be hard since she said she doesn't want to see me anymore. But, I don't think she really meant that. Not really.

Margo: Oh, really?

Jack: Really.

Margo: Yeah?

Jack: So, that settles it. If I can't say it in person, I'll say it with flowers.

Margo: No, no! Jack, you don't want to send flowers. No, that's the last thing you want to do.

Barbara: It means the world to me that you trust me.

Gwen: I do. And I'm really sorry that I freaked out when you gave us the ornament.

Barbara: Oh Honey, we don't have to talk about it, all right?

Gwen: I want to. The reason I have such a hard time believing anything good is going to happen is because whenever my mom would say something like that, she was conning me.

Barbara: Oh Honey --

Gwen: I realize now, you're nothing like my mom.

Will: Mom, that's a compliment.

Barbara: I just want you guys to be happy, that's all.

Gwen: My goodness, we are. Thanks to you.

Gary: So, how far along are you?

Alison: Seven months.

Gary: Gonna be a real bruiser. So, how much do you know about the adoption process?

Alison: Not a lot.

Gary: Well, before we get to that, I'm your lawyer. And I'm the little one's lawyer. And everything that I do will be to make sure that both of you end up in a really good place.

Alison: The only thing I want.

Gary: Kid. Listen. Never say to me "Only thing that I want," all right? We're making a list.

Alison: Okay, well, the most important is that the baby finds a good home. And I would like the parents to be about my age.

Gary: Okay, well the big money's in couples in their 40s and 50s.

Alison: So you can't do that? You can't find parents my age?

Gary: Didn't say that. As a matter of fact, I'm working on a case like that right now.

Aaron: So, I went by your hotel and you weren't there. They said you checked out. Sofie, call me back as soon as you get this, okay? Please.

Cole: Sofie, we have to go, we're going to miss the bus.

Sofie: I can't, Cole. I'm cramping.

Cole: Since when?

Sofie: The last few hours. Here comes another one.

Kit: This can't be good. I mean, if he sent this, it means he knows where I am.

Carly: It can't be good that who sent it?

Kit: Sam.

Carly: Who's Sam?

Kit: Look, I'm sorry this wasn't from Jack. I know you got your hopes up.

Carly: Oh, no, I didn't. I'm too smart for that. Well, I used to be.

Margo: Do you really think that after everything Katie has been through, that sending her flowers is going to change anything?

Jack: Start to change things?

Margo: No, no. Not in a good way. I mean, if anything, it'll make things worse.

Jack: I don't want to lose her, Margo.

Margo: And Jack, she doesn't want to put herself in the same position that she was five months ago. You sent her flowers then, and look what happened.

Jack: No, it's different. It's different this time! I'm over Carly. How do I get Katie to see that?

Margo: I don't know! You just wait and give her time and finish your paperwork.

Brad: I get that you're not exactly thrilled to do a segment on marriage. But I'm not sure this is something that I should do solo.

Katie: Why not, Brad? You know everything there is to know about everything. You told me so.

Brad: Maybe we could do it together? You know, maybe it could be a chance for you to talk. Get your feelings out.

Katie: Oh, come on. I am not going to talk about saving a marriage. It would be hypocritical.

Brad: Hypocritical?

Katie: 'Cause I don't think they should be saved. In fact, I think we should just get rid of the institution altogether.

Carly: Okay, so, you're getting a case of beer and a greeting card from someone who, "A," doesn't know that you stopped drinking, and "B," you didn't bother to tell that you moved away?

Kit: Yeah, well, our relationship is complicated.

Carly: Why should anything ever be simple around here? Okay. He's not a stalker?

Kit: No. No, no, no, no. It's just -- I don't know, we have time-outs.

Carly: Time-outs?

Kit: Yeah. I kick him out, he waits long enough for me to forget why I did, then -- he shows up and he's sweet --

Carly: Yes, of course. This is the oldest story ever told. And this time, the chump will be played by Kit.

Kit: Look, I've started a new life. I'm not falling back into old habits.

Carly: All right. Well, you hold onto that thought.

Kit: I will. It's the first day of the rest of my life. That's right. First day of the rest of my life. [Knock at the door] Sam?

Sam: You are a sight for sore eyes. Come here.

Brad: You believe in marriage.

Katie: Don't tell me what I feel.

Brad: You're just mad at it. Like you get mad at me sometimes.

Katie: Sometimes?

Brad: But you always get over being mad at me, just like you'll get over being mad at men in general.

Katie: No, I'm not mad at men in general. I have no problem with the Dalai Lama. Snyder men -- that's a different story. I don't even know why I bother talking to you and I wish I didn't have to work with you, but I do, so here's the deal. Tomorrow, you're going to do that segment alone and you're going to try to stay as far away from me as you possibly can. And if you ever, ever show up again with one single, perfect rose, you know where you can put it.

Flower man: Ms. Peretti -- these are for you.

Katie: Flowers. Thank you. Just what I wanted. 'Cause flowers fix everything, right? Right? Flowers fix everything! Give a girl flowers, and she just has instant amnesia.

Flower man: Have a nice day.

Katie: You are in such big trouble.

Brad: Not me.

Katie: No. No.

[Katie throws the flowers in the trash can]

Alison: So, those young parents whose adoption you're handling, do you think maybe I could talk to them? Or maybe the birth mother at least?

Gary: Honey, I have to respect their privacy. Just like I'm going to respect your privacy when the time comes.

Alison: Right.

Gary: But I can go over their adoption agreement with you. And when you see the kind of incentives that we're talking about, I really think it'll help you make up your mind.

Alison: Well, if I can't talk to them, could you at least tell me something about them?

Gary: For example?

Alison: I don't know. Like, where they're from, how far along the birth mother is?

Gary: Let's put our cards on the table. You didn't come here just to talk about giving up your baby, did you?

Barbara: You're making such a big fuss about all of this.

Gwen: Oh, come on, I get to you. You're giving us the most wonderful gift possible.

[Cell phone rings]

Barbara: Excuse me for a second.

Will: You're in a good mood.

Gwen: I know. It's weird, huh? It's like the Christmas spirit and the baby spirit kicked in at exactly the same time.

Barbara: Hello?

Cole: We have a problem.

Barbara: What's wrong? Where are you?

Gary: I'm right, aren't I? There's more to this than just the adoption.

Alison: I --

Gary: You're thinking about afterwards. About how you're going to feel. About yourself.

Alison: Yeah. Yeah, I guess --

Gary: Yeah. And you want to talk to a young woman your age who's going through this same thing. But I can't let that happen.

Alison: But you just said --

Gary: But I can recommend a good therapist. And let me be clear, the adoptive parents will probably want to help you with that expense.

Alison: Really?

Gary: Well, the older clients. Who are more --?

Alison: Desperate?

Gary: Settled. You know, I still think we need to go through contracts, so you can see how much you --

Alison: Can make?

Gary: Can provide for your baby. See, I think I'm in the win/win business, everybody profits.

[Alison sees Sofie’s hat she made for the baby in the lawyer’s briefcase]

[Alison remembering]

Aaron: And she knitted this little green hat with a dog on it.

Sofie: Why do you keep taking my blood pressure? Is the baby okay?

Nurse: You need to talk to the doctor about that. I'll get you some fresh water.

Sofie: Is my blood pressure too high? [Cell phone ringing] Cole, where are you, why did you leave?

Cole: Calm down. I'm here at the hospital. There's just something I have to take care of.

Sofie: They won't tell me anything.

Barbara: What happened?

Cole: We were on our way out of town, but she started getting cramps. They kept getting worse so I brought her here.

Barbara: Just tell me the baby's okay.

Gwen: She left really fast. She seemed upset.

Will: It's okay.

Gwen: You don't think it's about the baby, do you?

Will: No of course not. I mean, Mom gets like that when the dry cleaning's not ready.

Gwen: You're right. I mean, besides, if we just act like everything's fine, everything will be fine.

Vienna: Ah, I was wondering when you'd have a nerve to show up here.

Brad: I need your help.

Vienna: No. You wouldn't dare.

Brad: Look, I need to find a way to make Katie feel happy again.

Vienna: Ah -- join a monastery. That would make her very happy.

Brad: No, I'm serious, Vienna. I'm worried about her. It's not that she's just mad at Jack or me, she's mad at the whole world, off men, down on marriage.

Vienna: Down on marriage? Brad, if she said that, she's lying through her teeth.

Katie: Why did you do it?

Jack: Um, do what?

Katie: The flowers! After everything you've done, after everything I said to you, did you really think some stupid bouquet and a card with a smiley face on it was going to make everything all better!

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa -- hey, I don't do smiley faces.

Katie: I'm not kidding, Jack! It has to be over. And cards, and flowers, they just hurt too much.

Jack: I didn't send flowers! I was going to send flowers, but Margo said it was a bad idea 'cause she thought it might make you mad.

Katie: Well, if you didn't send them, then who did?

Vienna: Katie can say she's swearing off men all she wants, but it's only a defense mechanism.

Brad: I thought it was something like that.

Vienna: You see -- it wasn't just the marriage she wanted. It wasn't just Jack. She wants a house full of love. And children. And she wants more than just one rabbit.

Brad: Well, Jack's a great father. It's part of his attraction.

Vienna: But she wanted a baby with Mike. And she wanted one with Jack. And when all that fell apart, it wasn't just men she lost, she lost her future.

Brad: I'm fascinated by people who think about the future. I should try it.

Vienna: Darling, you should try thinking sometime.

Brad: You can't always get what you want, but you can get what you need. Oh, yeah –

Carly: I've heard a lot about you.

Sam: Hey, Sweetie, those beers aren't getting any colder just sitting over there.

Carly: But I didn't hear why you got kicked out just this last time.

Sam: My fault. Absolutely my fault. But Kit has a very forgiving nature. And a hell of a lot of nerve! I saw you on the news last night. Awesome, just awesome! Idaho woman ten, bad Santa nada.

Carly: That was on the news in Idaho?

Sam: What are you like a journalist or something, with all the questions?

Carly: Well, I'm like Kit's friend. And the owner of this house. And we don't seem to be getting off on the right foot.

Katie: Okay, so, you didn't send the flowers. Sorry for the false accusation.

Jack: Hey, Katie! If you're this upset about it, it might mean --

Katie: That I'm protesting too much? Could be. This is the way we have to play it, Jack. It's over. I just -- I can't hurt this much ever again.

Margo: I told you --

Jack: I didn't send the stupid flowers. But I'm going to find out who did.

Aaron: How you doing?

Sofie: Okay, I guess. The doctor said I had something called -- Braxton Hicks, which is like a fake contraction. Um, it's not serious. But he and Cole have been gone for so long.

Aaron: What? What is it, Sofie?

Sofie: I'm afraid something is wrong with the baby.

Cole: The doctor's running tests, he hasn't come back yet.

Barbara: Then why did you order me down here?

Cole: I just want to make sure you're still going to pay me, even if there's something's wrong with the kid.

Barbara: You are unbelievable!

Cole: Yeah, whatever, a deal is a deal. Oh, hey Doc, my girlfriend, she's a little shaken up. Can you tell me what's going on so if there's anything wrong, I can be the one to tell her?

Sam: I'll put a couple of these in the freezer so we can have one before dinner. And I certainly understand if I'm not invited to the party.

Kit: See, he's changed.

Carly: What? He didn't used to put beer in the freezer?

Kit: No, no, he's given us our privacy so you can -- you can tell me if he's not welcome. You know?

Carly: Well, no, you're the one who needs to do that. Decide that.

Kit: Thanks!

Carly: That he's not welcome! You need to be the one to kick him out, not me!

Kit: Yeah, you're right. You're right. Of course you're right.

Carly: So we're on the same page?

Kit: Sure. Sure, sure, I'll tell him. I hope you don't mind if he just sits down long enough to have a beer before he goes.

Instructor: Another lovely afternoon. Thank you.

Nancy: Thank you.

Katie: New boyfriend?

Nancy: Dream on. He's one of the instructors over there where I take dance lessons. He insists on walking me over here when I come to visit my friends and play bridge with them.

Katie: Oh, that's very sweet. And proves my point.

Nancy: Which is what?

Katie: That you don't have to be married to have a full life.

Nancy: But I had a full life simply because I was married for so many, many years. And Chris and I had a wonderful family together. And that was the most precious thing he ever gave me.

Jack: Hey, didn't you think the flowers was a bad enough idea?

Sofie: Aaron, I can't take this anymore. I have to know.

Aaron: Sofie, stay in bed. Relax. I'll go see if I can find Cole, okay?

[Aaron leaves Sofie’s room goes out in the hallway]

Cole: You mean we just cancel the trip to L.A. --

Doctor: She can't travel in her condition. I'm sorry.

[Cole goes into Sofie’s room]

Sofie: Cole, what did the doctor say? Is everything okay?

Cole: No. Everything is not okay, got it?

Will: You know what? I should put on some music.

Gwen: Yeah. It's a good idea.

Will: Mom.

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

Barbara: It was about the baby. It's a girl.

Gwen: What? It's a girl? It's a girl!

Cole: And since the baby's getting so big and you're so small, you can't leave. We're stuck here.

Sofie: But the baby's going to be okay, right?

Cole: Yeah, she's fine. I'm the one losing work every day we waste here.

Sofie: She? The doctor said it's going to be a girl?

Cole: Yeah.

Sofie: Hey, baby girl.

Cole: Oh, wow. Great. Thanks.

Sofie: What?

Cole: I just told you, you screwed up all my plans for L.A. and you're talking to your stomach. I've got to call my friend who's setting up the gigs for me, and tell him to find somebody else.

Aaron: Something's wrong with the baby?

Sofie: The baby's fine, just -- coming a little earlier than we expected. It's a girl.

Will: It's official. Next Christmas is going to be the happiest one ever.

Barbara: Are you going to call your brother?

Will: No, actually, I'm going to call Alison. I mean, she was really there for us and everything she was ready to do with the in vitro --

Barbara: No. Don't!

Alison: What a sweet little hat!

Gary: Yeah -- one of my birth mothers made that for her baby. You see, there are all kind of ways that you can make this process more personal.

Alison: You know what? I think I see how it works now. I'll just need time to think about it.

Gary: But I thought you said --

Alison: I'll tell you, since I got pregnant? I change my mind six, seven times a day! I'll be in touch.

Nancy: I just wouldn't want to see you lose all of that simply because things hadn't worked out with Jack.

Katie: I know I just -- I can't see myself getting close enough with anyone for that to happen.

Nancy: You young people. You give up so easily.

Katie: No one's ever accused me of that.

Nancy: It didn't use to be true.

[Cell phone ringing]

Katie: Excuse me. I'm sorry. What now?

Brad: Where are you?

Katie: And that's your business because?

Brad: Because I need to talk to you. Come on, Peretti, we still work together, we have to talk.

Katie: I'll be in my room in about five minutes.

Brad: Good. Stay there. I'll be right over.

Nancy: Is something wrong?

Katie: No. No, just more of the same.

Brad: Flowers. How lame is that?

Jack: Did you really think that I wouldn't know that I didn't send Katie flowers?

Parker: Well, I thought that by the time you figured that out, maybe she'd be not so mad at you.

Jack: Pal, she's so mad the flowers just made matters worse.

Parker: Well, she shouldn't be. You didn't do anything. Mom did.

Jack: Okay, I'm going to ask you a question and I want you to tell me honestly. This whole matchmaking. Are you doing it to get me and Katie back together? Or are you doing it to punish your mom?

Kit: Look, I know you're not thrilled that he's here.

Carly: We're supposed to be turning our lives around. This guy does not seem like a big step forward.

Kit: I know, I know. It's just --

Carly: Of course a case of beer, and a generic card. What woman wouldn't be swept off her feet?

Kit: Carly. Look, if you tell him to go, he's just going to come back. It's got to be me. Okay?

Carly: Yes, it does have to be you! Good girl!

Kit: All right. Just give us a moment to be alone, okay? Just so he knows it's my decision. Please!

Carly: Okay.

Kit: Thanks.

Carly: You are woman. Hear you roar.

Kit: Okay.

Carly: Great to see a woman taking control of her own destiny.

Parker: You think Mom should just get away with what she did.

Jack: Parker, she didn't. There's nothing that you and I can do to make her hurt any more than she's hurting right now.

Parker: What about you and Katie? You just give up? You guys were happy until Mom screwed everything up. Like, when you were going to get that house -- it could still be for sale, Jack. Dad, Dad, you should check it, if you get the house --

Jack: Parker. Son. Back off! Listen, right now I've got to do something that hurts more than anything I have ever done in my entire life.

Parker: What do you have to do?

Jack: Nothing.

Parker: Bet Brad's not doing nothing.

Katie: Okay, you have five minutes. It better be about work.

Brad: Of course it's about work. Except that it's not.

Katie: That's it.

Brad: Here.

Katie: That's our -- that's the house. That's the house Jack and I were going to buy. Why do you have a picture of our -- that house?

Brad: I just bought it.

Jack: I wouldn't worry about Brad. Katie's got his number.

Parker: Then why is she hanging out with him all the time?

Jack: Oh, Parker. Come on, you're just a kid. You shouldn't be talking about stuff like this unless, of course, it's your stuff like this.

Parker: Oh, yeah. I just can't wait to get advice about girls from you.

Jack: That would be so out of line if it weren't so true. Okay, listen. This is how we're gonna play this, okay? I'm laying down the law right now. No more flowers, no more candy, no more anything else trying to help us out. Got it?

Parker: Okay, I'll back off. But Dad, you shouldn't.

Katie: Why would you buy a house?

Brad: Not a house. Your house. I bought it because you love it, and you should have it.

Katie: That's probably the nicest things anyone has ever done for me.

Brad: Probably?

Katie: But I can't accept it.

[Jack remembering]

Parker: Bet you Brad's not doing nothing.

Jack: That Brad is really getting on my nerves. Ohh. Oh, I'm sorry.

Carly: Oh, sorry. Jack.

Jack: "Going solo: Strong women making strong choices for a strong future." Oh, there is only one thing, one thing that could cheer me up today, and that is finding out that you are in need of self-help books.

Carly: It's not for me.

Jack: Right.

Carly: It's for Kit.

Jack: Oh, that's even better. Is there anything in there that says aiding and abetting is not a strong choice?

Carly: Why can't you accept that she's trying to turn her life around? I don't think that's funny!

Jack: I don't think it's funny that she's living in your house. No, but J.J. must be getting a big kick out of it.

Carly: You know something? You know what, never mind. I am not going to defend myself to you. It's a waste of my time.

Jack: Finally something we agree on.

Carly: Oh, Jack, I didn't really want Kit living with me. I was just looking for a way so you could feel even more superior. Oh, good, that's good. Good. Things'll get a lot better now.

Aaron: Yeah?

Alison: I just left the lawyer. You won't believe what I saw.

Will: Mom, why shouldn't I tell Alison?

Barbara: I'm -- I'm sorry. I shouldn't be telling you what to do or not to do, but it's just -- you know, I thought maybe the two of you should just have this between yourselves for a while before you start sharing with anybody else.

Will: I'm not really getting this.

Gwen: Hey, guess what? It's not the two of us anymore, it's the three of us. And one more time, thank you so much for everything.

Aaron: Listen, I've got to go, okay? Try not to worry.

Sofie: Okay.

Aaron: I'll be back.

[Aaron goes out in the hallway and overhears Cole on the phone]

Cole: Don't give me that "I'm your mother" crap. I'm not giving up everything I want just because you say so. It doesn't make any difference where she has the kid, it makes a hell of a lot of difference that I'm not in L. A. right now. Okay, all right, I'll stay. But we're re-negotiating my cut.

Barbara: I just want you to turn your phones off, all of your phones off, and just have a quiet night. This is going to be one of the last ones you ever have, okay? Okay, good night, Sweetie.

Gwen: Good night. I'll talk to you in the morning. Quiet night.

Will: I wonder why she wants to keep everything so secret.

Gwen: I get it. She's still scared something could go wrong.

Will: But what?

Alison: So at the very least, we know the hat proves that Bradshaw is the lawyer who's dealing with Sofie.

Aaron: But it doesn't prove any connection to Gwen.

Alison: So I guess this means Sofie isn't leaving Oakdale.

Aaron: No, she can't, thank God. I mean, they told her that the baby's coming earlier than they thought.

Alison: What?

Aaron: I'll tell you, I wanted to take that jerk -- you know, they found out that it's a baby girl, perfectly healthy, and all he can think about --

Alison: Aaron. Better than beating him up is stopping him.

Aaron: We can do both.

Alison: First things first. I think I have an idea.

Aaron: What?

Alison: You know how every time something happened on Sofie's end, it managed to ripple down to Will and Gwen? Let's just see if that happened this time.

[Phone ringing]

Will: Hey. I was just going to turn off my phone.

Alison: Sorry, is it too late?

Will: No. Actually, we're just celebrating. My mom just came by. Don't tell anybody, but she said it's gonna be a girl!

Alison: You know that for sure?

Will: Yeah, and it seems like things are going even faster than we thought. It looks like we're gonna have her for Christmas.

Alison: That -- that's wonderful.

Will: So, what's up, why did you call?

Alison: Look, you two celebrate. And I will catch you later. Everything they told Sofie at the hospital, Will and Gwen already know.

Aaron: We wanted proof. I think we just got it.

Carly: Kit!? Kit!

Kit: Oh, Sam.

Sam: Tell me you're not happy to see old Sam again.

Carly: Oh, Lord. Oh, do I really deserve this? "Chapter one. Hitting bottom."

Jack: So, you just sold the house without even asking me? Mm-hmm. Yeah, well, thanks for absolutely nothing!

Margo: Whoa, Man. I'm really sorry, Jack, but maybe this is proof that you just gotta let go.

Jack: Hey, listen. If Katie wants space, she'll get space. If she wants time, she'll get all the time in the world, but I am not giving up on her!

[Crashing]

Margo: Ooh, it's gonna be fun around here.

Brad: Listen, Peretti, somebody buys you a house, you take it. It doesn't happen that often.

Katie: You didn't buy me the house.

Brad: Yes, I did, and the garage.

Katie: You're trading the house for -- you know.

Brad: I'm not asking anything from you. I want you to be happy about something, instead of being sad about everything. Okay, it didn't work out between you and Jack, but that doesn't mean you have to give up the house and the rabbits, the kids.

Katie: The house comes with a garage, Brad. It doesn't come with kids.

Brad: True, okay, but this is where -- this is a two-part gift. I buy the house, you buy the rabbits.

Katie: And the kids?

Brad: The kids -- we make.

Aaron: He knew it was a girl, and that it was coming soon. Sofie found that out less than half an hour ago.

Alison: And Barbara was the one who told them.

Aaron: Right, who has money and will do anything to make Will and Gwen happy.

Alison: If they find out, it's going to make things even worse for them. I mean, maybe --

Aaron: No, no, Alison -- they have to know.

Gwen: It's okay. I'm sure if I was talking to Alison, I'd have to tell her, too.

Will: I don't know. I guess I thought she'd be happier about it, that's all.

Gwen: She wasn't?

Will: No, she said all the right things, but I just got this feeling -- [Knock on door] You know, I think maybe we should move someplace quieter. Like Grand Central Station.

Alison: Hey. I have to talk to you guys.

Doctor: I can't induce labor, there's no reason.

Cole: The reason is, I can get to L.A. and start making a life.

Doctor: My job is to take care of the baby and her mother, not you.

Cole: Hey, so how long is this going to take, anyway? I gotta make plans.

Aaron: You gotta shut up.

Will: Alison, what's wrong?

Alison: On the phone, you told me that the baby was a girl and that she was coming early.

Will: Yeah, but it's fine, it's not that she's premature. She's just ahead of schedule. Was that what was bothering you?

Alison: No. But your mother was the one who told you, right?

Gwen: Look, Alison, what's going on here?

Alison: I -- there's something you need to know about the adoption.

Next week on "As the World Turns"

Brad: Are you saying what I think you're saying?

Katie: Yes, get me pregnant. What the hell are you doing here?

Carly: I'm hoping to keep you from making the biggest mistake of your life.

Gwen: Whatever deal you two made, Will and I don't want Cole's baby.
