Craig: You know, you never cease to amaze me. Delivering a baby in an elevator --

Meg: Yeah, well, I couldn't have done it without you. Just promise me one thing. When our baby comes, that we won't be stuck in an elevator --

Craig: Oh, no, no, private VIP suite with an army of obstetricians.

Meg: A whole army?

Craig: Absolutely. I mean, imagine the clout we're going to have here when Montgomery Enterprises new research lab opens up. Speaking of which, I better go see Chris Hughes about that, see how he is doing. Will you -- will you wait for me?

Meg: Yeah. Don't be long. Baby's getting hungry.

Craig: I'll buy you two lunch.

Eli: You and your husband look pretty tight.

Meg: Well, he's the father of my baby. That has changed a lot of things for me. You know, I still wonder how he found out about the paternity test.

Eli: Anyone in the lab could've filled him in.

Meg: I suppose. You know, the important thing is that we've put all that stuff behind us now.

Eli: Can't have been easy, with another possible daddy in the picture or have you forgotten all about him now?

Craig: Hey, Chris, just the man I was looking for.

Chris: Uh, yeah, I don't have the patience to wait for the elevator.

Craig: Oh, yeah, I'm avoiding elevators myself, but that's a whole other story. Listen, was it your idea for Emily to write that story about Evan Walsh’s research in "The Intruder"?

Chris: No. No, no, but I'm very glad she did.

Craig: Oh, no, it's great publicity. I also think it's gonna help light a fire under your father to come onboard.

Chris: I agree. In fact, I plan to take the project to the next level today.

[Cell phone rings]

Eli: Sorry, I have to take this.

Meg: Yeah.

Paul: Rosanna Ryan is my wife, I wondered if her release papers were ready?

Nurse #3: The computer crashed and all our paperwork is backed up.

Paul: Okay, well, when you get it, maybe you can let me know.

Nurse #3: I'll see if I can speed it up.

Paul: Thanks.

Meg: Rosanna's well enough to go home -- good for her.

Paul: Yeah, we're very lucky.

Meg: Yeah, you are.

Paul: How are you? Those cramps you're having, it's nothing serious, right?

Meg: No, no. I'm fine. The baby's fine. Thank you for bringing me to the hospital.

Paul: I just did what anyone would do. Craig was a little upset, you should know.

Meg: Well, Craig can be -- overprotective. But I'm sure he'll be a wonderful father.

Craig: I'm glad to hear that the project's moving forward, but is this with or without your father's approval?

Chris: Oh, I don't see the need to ask for permission.

Craig: Well, hey, hey. Bob Hughes is still chief of staff. And as I understand it, he is dead set against a research lab here at Memorial.

Chris: This project is happening. I'm not going to let my father stand in the way.

Bob: Well, here goes my cholesterol, but it tastes great.

Kim: Vienna definitely has a way with pastry.

Bob: Mmm.

Kim: Wouldn't it just be wonderful if we could do this every day?

Bob: Unfortunately, I run a hospital, you run a television station, and it tends make coffee breaks almost impossible.

Kim: You got a point there. But you know, if Chris actually did take on some of your responsibility, I would pull back at the station, and that way you and I could go on that cruise we've been putting off -- the one to Majorca.

Bob: I would love to go to sea with you.

Kim: You. Well, you know, let's just do it. You've been so stressed lately, it's a perfect solution.

Bob: Oh, not now. Maybe in a month or two, but these hospital crises keep popping up. Oh, by the way, I have news about Chris.

Kim: Uh-oh. Not bad news, I hope.

Dusty: I'm sorry to interrupt. Kim, you look lovely.

Kim: Oh, thank you.

Dusty: Bob, I just wanted to let you know that I spoke with Emily, and there won't be anymore articles run in "The Intruder" about Evan Walsh -- not if she knows what's right.

Bob: Well, I appreciate that. That article wasn't exactly what I needed to keep peace with the boardroom.

Dusty: What's the status on the Walsh research deal, anyway?

Bob: Well, it's not going to happen at Memorial. And Chris will have to accept that.

Chris: Oh, I wanted you to see the facilities that Memorial has to offer. With a few upgrades, they could be state-of-the-art.

Evan: That's all well and good, but you still don't have the green light.

Chris: Not yet, but if everything goes according to plan, we'll have your entire project up and running very soon.

Evan: Yeah, how will you get your father to approve?

Chris: My father won't be a problem.

Katie: Your timing really sucks, Carly. Get out!

Carly: No, no. Katie, look. I know that you hate me. But I can't let you go through with this. Letting Brad Snyder get you pregnant has got to be the worst idea I've ever heard.

Katie: And I should listen to you because?

Carly: If you're trying to get back at Jack, this is not the way to do it. Sleeping with Brad will only make you miss him more.

Parker: Hey, Dad.

Jack: Hey, Parker.

Parker: Christmas shopping?

Jack: Yeah, I'm just trying not to put it off until Christmas Eve this year.

Parker: Is that for Katie?

Jack: Good guess.

Parker: You know, I don't get it. When I set you two up to go skating, you freaked out. When I got her the flowers and the chocolate, you freaked out again.

Jack: That's because it wasn't your place to do that.

Parker: So does that mean you two are getting back together?

Katie: Since when did my personal life become any of your business?

Carly: You're not over Jack. That's a given. Just don't make things worse by getting in over your head with Brad.

Katie: Do you know how stupid I would have to be to take your advice?

Carly: Katie, I told you that you ought to forgive Brad for lying to you, I didn't tell that you ought to procreate with him!

Brad: Carly, will you go home. Just go home. Just get out of here and leave Katie alone.

Carly: Katie's lucky that I'm here to stop her from making a huge mistake because you, Brad, are the worst thing that could ever happen to her! Katie, why would you want to have a baby with Brad when you're still in love with someone else?

Katie: 'Cause I can't be with Jack anymore.

Carly: So you want to have a baby with him?

Brad: Okay, that's it. If you're not going to leave on your own, I will personally escort you the hell out.

Katie: Brad, whoa -- Brad. You might want to put some clothes on.

Brad: Okay, but while I'm gone, don't listen to a word she has to say.

Carly: I'm doing this for you, Katie.

Katie: For me? For me? Let's review all the things you've done for me. You are the reason that I'm not married to Jack and having kids with him.

Carly: I lost Jack. I can never be with him again. But you could still have a chance with him. Just don't do this. Don't burn bridges with Jack. You'll regret it for the rest of your life.

Jack: It's not like I can just decide to go back to Katie. My situation with her is a little more complicated than that.

Parker: Well, I could tell that she had fun skating with you. You should ask her to go again.

Jack: It's not that simple, Buddy. There are some things that I'm not sure Katie and I can work out. Even if we could work them out -- it'll probably take a while.

Parker: I can tell that you both want to, but you're both too stubborn to admit it.

Jack: Yeah, grown-ups are like that sometimes. Listen, in a perfect world, I'll give her this present, we'll start dating again, and she'll realize that she can't live without me. And that would be outstanding. But, as you know, sometimes things don't always work out the way we hope.

Parker: Yeah, I know. Especially when my mom's involved.

Carly: Maybe you're still too mad at Jack to forgive him right now. But having a baby with Brad is no good way to get back at him. Well, think about it, Brad would make an awful father, anyway. He's barely more than a child himself.

Brad: Okay, okay, Carly, party is over. You wanna insult me, do it to my face, outside. Excuse us. What the hell is wrong with you, Woman? Whose side are you on?

Dusty: So the Evan Walsh and Craig Montgomery research project has no home at Memorial?

Bob: Not on my watch.

Dusty: Good. I couldn't bear the thought of having Jennifer's foundation at the same hospital.

Bob: We really appreciate your support.

Dusty: Thanks, Bob. And it's great working with you. But I have to let you know, and I say this with all due respect, I'll never be in favor of your son becoming chief of staff.

Bob: Well, that's up to the board. I mean, they are already starting to groom him for it, and I think he's got a pretty good shot.

Dusty: I can't see it happening.

Kim: Uh, I don't think I'd underestimate Chris, if I were you.

Dusty: Well, let's put it this way -- I hope it's a long time before Dr. Bob decides to step down.

Kim: I've got a good notion to go over there and -- okay, you were saying, you have some news about Chris. Am I going to like it?

Bob: I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Chris: That's phase one. The lab space can be expanded to meet your needs.

Evan: It's a great facility, but without approval from the board and the chief of staff --

Chris: I'll get approval, don't worry.

Evan: Not soon enough. Look, I'm sorry, Chris. I'd like to work with you, but I'm afraid we're gonna have to go with your competition.

Chris: Hey, I just need a little more time. Why don't we lay out the plans for stage one research? Give me a wish list of everything you need.

Evan: I don't want to spend a lot of time spinning my wheels here, Chris.

Chris: You're not. Just tell me exactly what you need and I'll do whatever it takes to get this project up and running.

Bob: I asked Chris to do an evaluation on some of the other department heads, and it's a lot of inside baseball, but the bottom line is, he did a hell of a job.

Kim: Bob, that's absolutely wonderful! But don't tell me, tell Chris. You two have been at growling at one another for weeks now.

Bob: I will. Just as soon as I see him. You know, he really does have the potential to be chief of staff someday.

Kim: Does this mean we have the potential to take that cruise, my darling?

Bob: Why not? You better get my sailor suit out and press it.

Kim: Oh.

Bob: I'll see ya.

Kim: Okay, Darling. Love you.

Bob: Love you, too.

Eli: Was that the guy formerly known as other?

Meg: It doesn't matter. I've made peace with the way things are right now. And if my husband is the father, then that's the way things were meant to turn out.

Eli: You really think so?

Meg: Yes. Yes, Eli, I do. And thank you. You've been great for the DNA tests and all your help, and I just need to move on, okay? It's over. So let's not talk about this anymore, okay?

Eli: You know me -- I'll do whatever you want, Meg.

Craig: Hey!

Meg: Thank you.

Craig: There's our mother-to-be. How you doing?

Meg: Hey. Craig, you remember Eli from the lab.

Craig: Of course.

Eli: Good luck with the baby. Take care, Meg.

Meg: Thanks. You too.

Craig: So, you and the little one must be starving. What do you say we go get something to eat?

Meg: Can't wait!

Rosanna: Well, I saw you with Meg. Is it hard for you to be around her knowing that you could have been the father of her baby?

Paul: No, no. Rosanna, look, I don't even want to think about it. Let's just get home, okay? Now, there's some kind of problem with your release papers, so, I'll go see if I can't get that sorted out.

Eli: Got a minute, Mrs. Ryan?

Rosanna: Um, what do you want?

Eli: I think you'll be very interested in hearing what I have to say.

Rosanna: You have no right to barge in here.

Eli: I think you know who I am. Eli King -- I work in one of the labs.

Rosanna: Okay. Well, what do you want? Is there a problem with one of my tests?

Eli: Do me a favor, don't waste time playing dumb. You'll definitely want to get this over with before your husband gets back.

Kim: Dusty, you have a minute?

Dusty: I have a foundation meeting at the hospital.

Kim: Oh, okay, I'm not going to hold you then. I just wanted to say that that foundation is -- it means a lot to me, you know? Jennifer was named after my sister, and she's always had a special place in my heart.

Dusty: I know. You were very important to her.

Kim: And the foundation is a great testimony to her memory. And Barbara's always talking about the wonderful work you're doing, and Bob feels the same way. I just would hate to see anything threaten that.

Dusty: So would I.

Kim: The thing is, if Chris does actually end up chief of staff, and you two don't get along --

Dusty: Your son has a habit of stepping out of bounds.

Kim: Yeah, well, you know? I just wonder, would you -- would you consider just giving him a second chance, okay?

Dusty: Why?

Kim: Well, because. As a favor to me. We go back a long time, you and I.

Dusty: I know that. And I respect you, and I always have, but your son's another story.

Kim: You know, Dusty, he's young, and he's passionate about his work. His heart --

Dusty: I'm not impressed with his work. He's out for himself. Someone's got to keep an eye on him.

Chris: Well, as far as I'm concerned, you should think bigger when it comes to lab space.

Evan: Well, I worked with all the space you had available.

Chris: I'd find the funds to double it, including staff and tech support.

Evan: Awesome. We could test twice as many drugs and get FDA approval much faster.

Chris: That is the idea, my friend. The more research we do, the more lives we can save. And if we keep it profitable, the whole thing pays for itself.

Evan: Yeah! That's what I call vision.

Chris: Well, that is why you and Montgomery Enterprises can't take your project to any other hospital. It has to be done at Memorial because we'll do it right.

Evan: So how do we get started when your father's a major roadblock?

Chris: Oh, don't worry. My old man's not gonna be calling the shots around here much longer.

Bob: I wouldn't count on that! This old man isn't going anywhere.

Rosanna: What do you want from me?

Eli: I checked your chart. For a while there, you were slipping in and out of consciousness.

Rosanna: Well, that's why I was hospitalized.

Eli: But you must have been awake a lot more than you were letting on.

Rosanna: Why would you say that?

Eli: Because you broke into my office when you were supposedly in a coma.

Rosanna: Oh, that's ridiculous.

Eli: Deny it. I know exactly what you did.

Craig: Well, you take eating for two very seriously. You want the rest of my steak?

Meg: Don't tempt me. You know, helping that woman give birth burns up a lot of calories.

Craig: Oh yeah? I know that you were scared, but so was I. And I wouldn't have missed that for the world. It's not often you get to witness a miracle.

Meg: You know, you kept a pretty cool head. Ever think about med school?

Craig: No, no, no. I'm a businessman. My only job is to make sure everything is ready for our child when he gets here. Or her.

Meg: So I see we're making progress on that front. And we're also looking for a house with a state-of-the-art nursery. And you've already started a college fund.

Craig: Well, it's gonna take a lot more than a college fund to secure our child's future. I spoke to Chris Hughes. He's going ahead and starting up the research lab here at Memorial. I think the project will be up and running by the time our baby gets here.

Meg: But I thought Bob Hughes said no.

Craig: He did, but Chris said he was going to talk to him, not to worry about it, Bob won't be a problem.

Bob: Chris, I told you, Evan Walsh is not doing his research at Memorial.

Evan: Whoa, we were just sharing some ideas. This wasn't anything official.

Bob: I'd like to speak to my son privately. I can't believe you did this again.

Chris: I didn't do it to defy you, Dad. I'm just thinking about what's best for the hospital.

Bob: No, no, no, you're thinking about yourself and your own advancement. You know, I came in here to see you, to tell you that I was encouraged by the work you're doing. And now, all I can say is, how deeply disappointed I am in you.

Jack: Oh! I can't believe we've made it all in one trip.

Parker: I can't believe you finished all your Christmas shopping. It must be some kind of record.

Jack: No. Are you kidding me? I am nowhere near done. With three kids, all my nieces, nephews, cousins, Aunt Emma --

Parker: You forgot Brad.

Jack: Yeah, him, too.

Parker: He's been hanging around Katie a lot.

Jack: So I've noticed.

Parker: That bugs you, right?

Jack: You could say that.

Parker: Well, on the upside, at least you don't have to spend a lot of money on his present.

Jack: Yeah. There's a thought.

Parker: So, this is what you got for Katie?

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, we went shopping before we were married. I could tell she liked it.

Parker: So when are you going to give it to her?

Jack: Well, I'm not going to rush things, but if all goes -- if all goes well, Katie and I may be spending part of Christmas day together.

Parker: Yeah, but if she says yes to that, she wants to spend a lot more than just Christmas day with you.

Jack: Listen to Mr. Love connection.

Parker: I'm serious. I think that you and Katie are going to get married again.

Brad: If I want to have a kid with Katie, you've got no say in it. I mean, why should you care anyway?

Carly: I'm doing this for Jack. He doesn't deserve to be hurt anymore.

Brad: Oh, don't try to be St. Carly. The halo does not fit.

Carly: I still care about him.

Brad: You care about yourself, and Jack is mad as hell at you right now. And I'll be damned if I'm going to let you score brownie points with him at my expense.

Carly: As usual, you have no idea what you're talking about! I am trying to do the right thing.

Brad: You wouldn't know the right thing if it came up and bit you in the butt. Okay, you feel -- you're feeling guilty. But don't think you can repair things between Katie and Jack. They're over, finito, kaput.

Carly: I don't know. I wouldn't be so sure about that, if I were you.

Brad: What is wrong with you? I mean, you pulled every trick in the book to try to get them apart. I mean, you told me if I stuck with you, you know, if I kept your secret, then I would end up with Katie as my reward.

Carly: Well, I was supposed to end up with Jack! And it didn't happen! So any deal that we had is null and void.

Brad: Well, that's just great, isn't it? You lose Jack, and now I'm supposed to lose Katie. So that's it?

Parker: That's cool. You should definitely get back together with Katie for Christmas.

Jack: Oh, listen, Bud, I don't want you to get your hopes up. It all depends on Katie.

[Phone ringing]

Parker: Hello?

Katie: Parker? It's Katie. Is Jack there?

Parker: Hey, Katie. He's here. Hold on. This could be your chance. Don't blow it.

Jack: Hey, Katie. What's up?

Katie: I cannot believe you would stoop so low as to send Carly over here to do your dirty work!

Jack: Hold on, Katie. I don't know what you're talking about.

Katie: You sent Carly over here for one reason and one reason only. To keep me and Brad from -- you know.

Jack: No. No, I don't know! What? Carly came to see you? Why did she do that?

Katie: When I think of all the ways that you and Carly have hurt me lately -- to think that you have some right to invade the most personal, private moments of my life.

Jack: Listen, Katie. Whatever Carly did, I swear, I had nothing to do with.

Katie: I don't believe you.

Jack: Okay, maybe we should take care of this in person then. I'll come see you.

Katie: No, no! No way!

Jack: Whatever you're upset about, whatever Carly did, you got to give me a chance to fix it.

Katie: That's your problem, Jack. You think that if there's something that you don't like, all you have to do is step in and fix it, and it will go back to the way you wanted it. But not this time. There is nothing that you and Carly can do to stop me. I'm doing this. I am having a baby with Brad, and you can't say one word about it.

Jack: This isn't about me, it's about you. And if you're going to have that kind of a relationship, you know, with Brad, it's not going to end well. Bringing a baby into this world, it's -- it's a huge thing. And if you don't do that with the right person, you could be paying for that mistake for the rest of your life.

Katie: You ought to know.

Jack: Look, I don't have all the answers. Obviously. I just can't stand to see someone do something for the wrong reasons.

Katie: I've made up my mind, Jack. I'm having a kid with your brother. Deal with it!

Jack: Katie? Katie?

Parker: Bad news?

Jack: Well, it wasn't good.

Parker: It's all Mom's fault, right?

Carly: I got news for you, Brad. You can't lose Katie because you never had her in the first place.

Brad: Maybe not, but if we have a kid together, who knows, things might change.

Carly: You're a sperm donor. That's not exactly a recipe for romance.

Brad: Hello? Look, are you as blind as you are dense? I'm not just some anonymous donor. Until you showed up, Katie and I were well on our way to Brad Snyder's guaranteed-to-please afternoon delight!

Carly: I really can't believe that she agreed to that.

Brad: Well, she did. And we would be rocking and rolling if you hadn't interrupted.

Carly: And I'm glad I did. Because as much as I hate to admit this, I think that Jack might actually still love her. And so today, I stopped you from doing something to your brother that you would regret for the rest of your life.

Brad: Well, I'm sorry. He lost his chance. You know, when Katie and I have a kid, she's gonna forget about him. Permanently. And that's a good thing. For me and for her.

Carly: If you honestly think this is going to work, you're out of your mind!

Rosanna: I have no idea what you're talking about.

Eli: Someone made unauthorized use of the lab computer. That someone was you.

Rosanna: Well, you can't prove --

Eli: Yes, I can. There's a security camera. I reviewed the tape, and there you were, sitting at my desk, messing with my computer.

Rosanna: It's on tape?

Eli: You switched Meg's DNA test results because you wanted her to think her husband was the father of her baby, but the real daddy is someone else. And I don't need a Ph.D. to figure out that Mr. Other is your husband.

Paul: Hey. Here you go. So, I can take my wife home now, right?

Meg: Mmm. This is delicious. Are you sure you don't want a bite?

Craig: Seeing you happy is dessert enough for me.

Meg: Well, then, I'd better enjoy it while I still can. You know, pretty soon you'll be lavishing all your energy on our little bundle of joy when you're not setting up trust funds, that is.

Craig: Oh, you think there's something wrong with securing our child's financial future?

Meg: Of course not, but I do hope you're right. I hope Evan's project does get the go-ahead. It's just that my sources over at Memorial aren't as sure.

Craig: Why not?

Meg: Well, Bob Hughes was on the warpath after a profile on Evan came out on "The Intruder."

Craig: And what would my wise CEO advise we do under these circumstances?

Meg: That you make sure that Chris Hughes doesn't overplay his hand with his father.

Evan: I'm glad I found you two. I think we have a problem.

Bob: This is the second time you've gone directly against my orders. I don't want Walsh's research in this hospital!

Chris: He's not working here. We were just having a theoretical discussion.

Bob: Oh, you're planning a new research lab that I won't support.

Chris: Evan is getting very good press.

Bob: One article by your girlfriend doesn't qualify as good press. No, this is about you -- you and your ambition.

Chris: This is not about my ambition. It's about finding new drugs to cure disease and putting Memorial on the map!

Bob: Memorial doesn't need you to get a reputation.

Chris: It's the 21st century, Dad. The advances in technology, the kinds of breakthroughs that Evan Walsh is working on -- that is the future! Opening his lab here will keep us competitive!

Bob: You know, you just made me realize that you're not seasoned enough to run a hospital. To run a hospital, you have to be a leader, and leadership means thinking of others, not just yourself.

Chris: I'm thinking about all the jobs, not to mention the lives -- the lives, Dad, that could be lost if we don't approve this project.

Bob: You know, I had hoped that some day you could take my place, but as things stand, I don't think that's ever gonna happen.

Chris: This hospital would be lucky to have someone like me running it! Someone with his eye on the future and not the past!

Bob: I see. You have no respect for me and my experience.

Chris: No. No, I have no respect for a chief of staff who is caught in the stone age. Change and adapt, or you deserve to be extinct!

Evan: Bob Hughes walked in while Chris and I were looking at plans for the research lab, and he hit the roof!

Meg: Well, I'm sure that wasn't a surprise to you.

Evan: No, but it's a damn shame, because there's no way for us to work at Memorial now. We're better off making a deal with Harvard. I can fly to Boston in the morning.

Craig: No, no. Take it easy. Don't -- just don't do that right away. Let me just talk to Bob Hughes first, okay? Maybe cooler heads will prevail.

Evan: Go ahead. I don't think it will do any good.

Craig: I won't be long.

Meg: Okay. Good luck. So, are you sure no one can change Bob's mind?

Evan: You didn't see how mad he was. When I left, he was geared up to really let Chris have it. Trust me, this won't be pretty.

Bob: You are way out of line, Son.

Chris: I don't understand what's happened to you. You used to be open to new ideas. You used to support me when I wanted to try new things. But now, I cannot even get through to you. Memorial will never be the major research hospital it should be if you keep holding us back, Dad.

Bob: So you think you can do this job better than I can?

Chris: I know I can. And if you won't let me prove it now, I'll be forced to prove it when you're gone.

Bob: You won't get that chance. The only thing you've proven to me today is you're not ready to run a hospital, not now and probably never.

Nurse: Mr. Ryan, I'm sorry, but the business office sent the wrong forms. Would you like me to call downstairs?

Paul: No, thank you, though. I'll take care of it.

Rosanna: I have to ask you to please not release that tape to anyone. There are things that you just don't understand. No one can know that Paul is the father of Meg's baby.

Eli: That's what I figured you would say. Meg and I are old friends.

Rosanna: Well, then let her live in peace. I mean, she and her husband are committed to each other, and they're looking forward to raising this child together. I mean, why turn their whole lives upside down?

Eli: Oh, so you're only thinking of them. Man, that's so sweet.

Rosanna: Is there anything that I can do to persuade you?

Eli: Well, I'm not the type of person who would ordinarily do anything like this, but I have developed some rather expensive habits lately, and my bills are piling up.

Rosanna: How much do you want?

Chris: Well, if that's how much faith you have in me, I might as well turn in my resignation now.

Bob: Oh, you do what you have to do. Unless you can give your word that you will respect my decisions and follow my orders from now on --

Chris: How can I, Dad, when I am convinced you are dead wrong?

Bob: Then clean out your office and turn in your keys to security.

Chris: Fine, fine. Whatever. But I swear, Dad, you're going to regret you did this.

Craig: Hi. Excuse me, I'm looking for Bob Hughes? He's not in his office.

Nurse: He could be on rounds. Would you like me to page him?

Craig: Oh, no, that's all right. I'll catch up to him later. Thank you.

Rosanna: You must have a very expensive habit. What if I refuse to pay?

Eli: I happen to know Meg Montgomery would love to find out that your husband is her baby's father. I could make Meg happy, or you could make me rich. You pick.

Rosanna: All right, you'll get your money.

Eli: All cash, please.

Rosanna: That may take a while. But when I pay you, I want the tape.

Eli: You got it. I knew we could come to terms. That wasn't so hard, was it?

Rosanna: You can leave now.

Parker: Don't give up on Katie. Look, this was Mom's fault. And what did she do, anyway?

Jack: It doesn't matter. Listen, tell Emma I went out for a while. Keep an eye on your sister, will you?

Parker: You're going to kill Mom for this, aren't you?

Jack: No, no, but very close.

Carly: You're dreaming, Brad.

Brad: And what's wrong with that? You know, some dreams are worth holding onto.

Carly: So what? You're going to give Katie a little baby, and then you'll all live in a nice, big house someplace with a big backyard, white picket fence?

Brad: I'm thinking more split rail. Something a little more rustic.

Carly: So you honestly think all you have to do is knock her up, and she's gonna be yours forever? That is beyond pathetic.

Brad: What's wrong? What's wrong? Oh, I know. Its sour grapes. You lost your chance with a life with Jack, so to hell with the rest of the world. Nobody's gets to be happy ever again.

Carly: You're not going to be happy here because Katie does not love you. She will never love you. She's going to love Jack forever!

[Carly leaves]

Brad: Ohh, what can I say? She had no right.

Katie: She never does. But this time I think Jack sent her.

Brad: You do?

Katie: I do. But it's not going to do either of them any good. I haven't changed my mind. I still want a baby.

Brad: With me.

Katie: Yes, of course with you. Brad, what's wrong?

Brad: I know I'm just a stand-in for Jack, and that you're just using me to -- to make a baby, and I'm letting myself be used, but all of a sudden, it doesn't feel the way I thought it would.

Carly: This is a pleasant surprise.

Jack: Pleasant? No. No, it's definitely not going to be pleasant.

Katie: Carly got to you, didn't she? You don't want to be with me now.

Brad: No, I'm not saying that. No. But it's like I was trying to tell you earlier. This isn't just any baby, it's your baby, and how it should happen should be a beautiful thing. And if we're just using each other, then I'm not sure --

Katie: What were you saying, Brad? You going to have a problem with this?

Brad: Come here.

Carly: I was trying to help. I told Brad that he doesn't belong with Katie. I thought I was doing a good thing.

Jack: It wasn't. It was the worst thing you could have done.

Carly: I don't understand that.

Jack: Katie thinks I sent you there. No wonder she had a bad reaction.

Carly: Well, I'm sorry, but what Katie was doing was wrong.

Jack: I admit that, but what you did made things worse, and it probably pushed Katie into bed with Brad.

Carly: Oh, no -- oh, I hope not.

Jack: Oh, cut the act, Carly. This is what you wanted all along.

Eli: When I get the money, you'll get the tape.

Craig: What was that all about?

Rosanna: And hello to you. Nothing. I -- one of the lab technicians -- I don't know, I forget his name -- expedited one of my tests, and I simply thanked him. Now I get to go home to my husband.

Paul: Okay. Here we go.

Nurse: Looks like everything is in order.

Paul: Great.

Nurse: You can take your wife home.

Paul: Finally. Thank you.

Rosanna: Hi.

Paul: Hi. You all set?

Rosanna: Yes. I can't wait to get out of here.

Paul: Terrific. Your limousine.

Rosanna: Is this really necessary?

Paul: Absolutely. From now on, I'm going to take great care of you.

Chris: Mom, Mom.

Kim: Hi.

Chris: What are you doing here?

Kim: I'm looking for your father. Do you know where he is?


Chris: I'm sorry, Mom, I just got a page. It's important. I have to go.

Dusty: Bob? Bob?

Kim: Oh, my God.

Dusty: Bob, can you hear me?

Kim: Honey? Honey?

Dusty: Bob?

Kim: Oh!

Dusty: Bob, can you hear me?

Announcer: Next week on "As the World Turns" --

Brad: That -- was awesome.

Jack: I want Katie back. I don't care if she slept with Brad! I still want her back.

Chris: Come on, Dad, don't you quit on me.

Kim: Oh. Oh!

Chris: I talked to my father. He was so angry, he fired me. That is why he had the stroke.

Gwen: You're in labor. We need to get you to the hospital.

Sofie: No, no, no. I'm not going anywhere with you.

Luke: Don't let go.

Noah: I won't. I'm not going anywhere.

Meg: This is your little boy in here. Our son.

Craig: I know that you changed the paternity test results. I know that your husband is the father of my wife's son. You afraid of me, Rosanna? You should be. --
