Emma: Hey, Luke, your dad and I are going to go out and fix that stall door in the barn. The one that you were supposed to help me with. If you two want to take a little break there, there's some lovely fresh-baked cookies over here on the counter.

Luke: Word to the wise, Noah, you do not turn down my grandma's cookies.

Noah: Are you kidding? I've been distracted by the smell since I got here.

Emma: Help yourself.

Holden: Ethan's sleeping. You ready?

Emma: Yeah.

Holden: Ooh, oatmeal raisin?

Luke: Dad, come on, leave some of the rest of us.

Holden: You know what? Make your own.

Emma: Have to be nice and give those to your mama. You can have one, here you go.

Holden: Thanks, Mama.

Emma: We'll be back.

Noah: Okay, they're gone. You ready?

Rosanna: I think we should take my bag up the stairs --

Paul: No, no, leave them right there. I'm going to ask the maid bring them upstairs later. I --

Rosanna: Are you all right?

Paul: Yeah, I'm fine. I have a surprise for you.

Rosanna: You do?

Paul: Yes, I do. You'd think I would bring you home from the hospital without a few bells and whistles?

Rosanna: Ooh, bells and whistles, I like --

Paul: How about flowers? Do you like flowers?

Rosanna: Oh, my gosh. Paul -- ooh, they're lovely.

Paul: So are you. And so is that smile. I have missed that smile. I've missed you. Promise me that you will never leave me again.

Rosanna: I promise.

Gwen: You know what's going to happen if you do that, don't you? [Phone rings] You got three seconds, that's a new record.

Will: Hello?

Barbara: Oh, Will, oh thank God you picked up. I have been so worried. I have been calling and calling.

Will: And no one's been answering. Maybe that should tell you something, Barbara.

Barbara: Please, Will, I am not Barbara. I am your mom.

Will: And speaking of calling? If you call us again, then we'll sue you from harassment. You got that, Mom?

[Will hangs up the phone. Barbara sees Alison]

Barbara: You Ė

[Knock on the door]

Aaron: Sofie? Sofie, open the door. Come on. Open up, please. Don't be mad. I just wanted to stop by and make sure you were okay.

Sofie: I'm fine. But Aaron, you better go. Cole will be back any minute, and --

Aaron: Sofie, Cole is not here. I talked to the guy at the front desk. Have you heard from him?

Sofie: No. What are you doing?

Aaron: Packing. You're coming with me.

Sofie: No, I'm not.

Noah: Just like last night, okay? Come on. There you go. You've got it. Okay. Come on, easy. Easy.

Luke: Don't let go.

Noah: I won't. I'm not going anywhere. You did it.

Barbara: So what part of leave Gwen and Will alone didn't click with you?

Alison: I'm sorry, but you don't get to blame me for what's happened. This is all your fault.

Barbara: What I did was private. It was a family matter. And now, because of your interference, my family is ripped apart.

Alison: If that's true, and I hope it's not, you have nobody to blame but yourself.

Gwen: Do you think she'll call back?

Will: No, I meant what I said. I don't want to talk her.

Gwen: Will, look -- I'm really mad at her --

Will: Gwen, I don't want her in our lives after what she's done. When we do have a family, I don't want her to be a part of it.

Gwen: Okay. Will? I'm not sure I want that anymore.

Will: What?

Gwen: I don't want a baby.

Barbara: Oh, I know you just got home. I don't mean to intrude.

Paul: Great, so you'll leave then?

Barbara: I just don't know -- I don't have any place else to go.

Rosanna: Barbara, its okay. You don't have to apologize. You're family.

Paul: What's wrong, Mom?

Barbara: I've done something -- I've done something terrible. And I don't think your little brother is ever going to forgive me.

Dr. Bullock: It's nice to see you, Mr. Montgomery. Why don't you go in? I'll be with you momentarily.

Meg: Sounds good. Hey, are you coming?

Craig: Yeah, yeah -- I just got to call the office real quick and I'll be in as soon as I can.

Meg: Okay.

Craig: Hello, Eli.

Eli: Oh, Mr. Montgomery, hello. How are Meg and the baby doing?

Craig: Oh, my wife and child are doing just fine, thank you.

Eli: I'm glad to hear it.

Craig: You know, I was hoping you and I can have a word. In private.

Eli: About your wife?

Craig: No. About my ex-wife. Rosanna Cabot.

Craig: Oh, come on, Eli. Don't lie to me. I saw you together engaged in what seemed like a very, serious conversation. And that just made me curious. What would you and Mrs. Ryan possibly have to talk about?

Eli: I was talking with her about the possibility of getting some funding for my research at the hospital.

Craig: Networking a patient?

Eli: Is that frowned upon?

Dr. Bullock: Mr. Montgomery? I'm ready to get started. Still planning on joining us?

Craig: Oh, absolutely. Anything that happens to this child is of the utmost importance to me.

Paul: So the bottom line is that you bought a baby for Will and Gwen?

Barbara: They were desperate to have a family. I was just trying to help them. That's all -- let me explain.

Paul: Well, that should have been your first clue to back off because you don't help people very well, do you, Barbara?

Barbara: I owe it to Will. All he's ever wanted is a family. The kind of family that I failed to give him as a little boy. So, yes, that's what I was trying to do. All I was trying to do, I swear. I swear --

Rosanna: Oh, Barbara.

Barbara: You know what? I was trying to give him that. After everything I put him through when he was growing up. I lost his trust. It took me years to get it back. But I got it back. I've finally got it back and now -- now I'm afraid that I've lost him and I can't lose him again. I can't.

Paul: Well, I hope you didn't come here, hoping that I would help you. Because that's the last thing I'm gonna do.

Gwen: Will, I think it's time that we face that the fact that we might not be able to have a baby. You know, it's cost us too much.

Will: What have I lost?

Gwen: Well, we've both lost time, time we could have spend together happy. And you've lost your relationship with your mom.

Will: Gwen, she lied to you.

Gwen: Will, I -- look, I can't help feeling like I don't bear some responsibility in this. I'm the one who pushed so hard to have a baby. You know, in a way, I'm the reason she did this.

Will: Gwen, I'm not going to let you blame yourself anymore, it's just wrong.

Gwen: I love you, okay, but I'm not going to be the reason that you lose your mom. No matter what she's done to me, to you -- to anyone.

Sofie: I don't need you to take care of me.

Aaron: But I want to.

Sofie: You know, it's not about what you want. It's about what I want for once.

Aaron: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to sound like I'm trying to control you. You've obviously had enough of that in your life. So, listen, just tell me what it is you want me to do, and I'll do it.

Sofie: I want you to go.

Aaron: What?

Sofie: Aaron, I'm grateful to you. I am. You -- you've figured out that Cole was making a deal about my baby and you stopped him. And I can't thank you enough for that. But I just can't be around you right now.

Aaron: Sofie, you're not making any sense.

Sofie: You know what? Trusting Cole was the biggest mistake of my life. But when you step in and try to fix things -- it just reminds me of how much I've messed everything up.

Noah: So, when are you going to tell your parents?

Luke: Um, about the walking? I was thinking around Christmas -- maybe a Christmas surprise, but I don't know.

Noah: Why not? They'd be so happy.

Luke: I don't know. I just feel like everything's different this year because of the divorce. I don't even know if my mom is going to be here for Christmas.

Noah: Oh, come on, your mom is not going to miss out on Christmas with you.

Luke: Oh, she skipped out on Thanksgiving to go be with --

Noah: Sorry. I didn't mean to bring that up.

Luke: No, no, it's okay. So, what are you doing for Christmas?

Noah: I don't know. I guess I've got to check someone with school to see which dorms are going to be open through break.

Luke: No, don't do that. Spend Christmas with me.

Alison: I just wanted to see how the two of you were doing.

Gwen: We're okay.

Alison: Yeah? Good.

Will: How about you?

Alison: Oh, you know -- got up, showered, had breakfast, ran into Barbara.

Gwen: How'd that go?

Alison: Pretty much as expected. She was crazed. And she said it was all my fault because I kept asking questions about the adoption.

Will: She always does that. She places blame, but you didn't do anything wrong.

Alison: It's kind of hard not to feel guilty. I mean, you guys aren't going to get to have your baby because of me.

Gwen: No, Alison, the reason why we're not adopting the baby because she belongs to my brother and to Sofie. Not because of anything that you've done. I mean, the truth is, is that she was never our child to begin with.

Noah: You really want me to spend Christmas here?

Luke: Yes. Yeah, of course I do. Well, I mean, if that's what you want too.

Noah: Yeah, why wouldn't I?

Luke: Because -- if we spend Christmas together, it's kind of like -- I don't want to assume anything and I don't want you to feel any pressure, so --

Noah: You wouldn't be. It's not like I have any family to go home to anyway. And Christmas alone, in front of the TV, eating old Chinese takeout -- it's only really glamorous in old movies, so -- you know, if I do stay here, I do have one condition.

Luke: Oh, yeah, what's that?

Noah: Yeah, you better not hog all the covers.

Paul: You know what I did to Jennifer. You know how much I hurt her when I kept the information about Johnny away from her. And you turn around, and you do the same thing?

Barbara: No --

Paul: What is the matter with you?

Barbara: No, Sofie was giving the baby up for adoption. It was her decision. I did not influence her.

Paul: Great, so why didn't you tell Will and Gwen whose baby it was?

Barbara: Because they not would have taken the baby. Is that what you want to hear? Okay, yes, I decide to keep quiet about it because I knew how much this baby could mean to them --

Paul: And you think that justifies what you've done? Will and Gwen should have been able to make the decision about whether or not they wanted that baby on their own. With everything out in the open. But you deprived them of that. It's the biggest decision of their lives and you took it out of their hands. And now you're going to have to live with the consequences. But don't you come here and ask for sympathy, Barbara, because that is the last thing that you deserve.

Rosanna: Paul, that's enough. Leave your mother alone.

Rosanna: I am saying that I agree with you. I think that what your mother did was wrong.

Paul: That's right --

Rosanna: But I'm just asking you to try to understand why she did it.

Paul: Because she's insane.

Rosanna: But her heart was in the right place. All she wanted was to help Will and Gwen have a family.

Paul: Instead, what's she done is she's torn the family apart.

Rosanna: You know what that's like, don't you? To hurt the people that you love to want their forgiveness more than anything? I mean, it took Jennifer being on her deathbed for her to forgive you for what you did with Johnny -- I mean, do you want to wait that long to forgive your mother?

Barbara: Paul? Do you think you can forgive me? Please?

Dr. Bullock: Now, I haven't had the chance to go over the full results of your CVS test, but there is something that I can tell you. Would you like to know the sex of the baby?

Meg: I don't know. Do we?

Craig: It's up to you.

Meg: Okay. Tell us.

Dr. Bullock: Congratulations. It's a boy.

Craig: It's a boy. A son.

Holden: I'm going to check on Ethan.

Emma: Hey. Cold. What happened to all my cookies?

Noah: That -- that would be my fault. I guess I just can't say no to your cooking. Sorry.

Emma: Oh, my goodness, what a smooth talker, huh, Luke? Can't say no to my cooking, well, I guess that means you want to stay for dinner, huh?

Noah: I would love that. You know, I also just have to -- take some books out to my truck, so I'll be right back.

Emma: Okay.

Luke: Well, Grandma thanks for inviting Noah to dinner, Grandma. You know, he had a really, really good time at Thanksgiving.

Emma: Oh, that's wonderful.

Luke: He hasn't even stopped talking about it.

Emma: He's welcome here anytime -- anytime at all.

Luke: Well, I am glad to hear that because I was kind of hoping that Noah could stay with us for Christmas.

Emma: Well, you know, we kind of have a full house with Jack and the children, and Brad, and your dad, and your brothers and sisters, I'm going to -- I don't think we have a single room left.

Luke: Well, that's okay. Noah can stay in my room.

Aaron: Okay. So let's say I do what you want me to do and I leave you here alone. What are you going to do?

Sofie: I don't know. I haven't thought about it.

Aaron: Well, maybe you should think about it.

Sofie: Maybe you should stop telling me what to do. I can think for myself, you know.

Aaron: I'm just trying to show you that you have a lot of other options.

Sofie: Yes, you're right, I do. I can keep listening or I can ask you to leave. And I'm asking you to leave. I mean it, Aaron. Go.

Gwen: Listen, no matter what Barbara says to you, you're not allowed to feel guilty about this. You did a good thing.

Will: Alison, Gwen's right. If anything, we should be thanking you.

Alison: I don't know about that.

Gwen: No. Imagine if we would have brought the baby home, and then bonded with her, and then found out the truth, it would have been much worse.

Alison: Either way sounds pretty awful to me, but -- look, I'm just going to go. Please do me a favor? Just take care of each other, okay?

Paul: You did an awful thing. And you know it, whether you want to say it or not. Will and Gwen have every right to ask you to leave their lives forever. But what you did do, you didn't do to me. So, you don't have to ask me for forgiveness.

Barbara: Thank you, thank you.

Paul: You're welcome. I'll go talk to Will, but don't expect a miracle.

Barbara: You're the last person I thought would come to my defense.

Rosanna: Well, sometimes people do unimaginable things to hold on to the ones they love.

[Rosanna remembering]

Rosanna: It's on tape?

Eli: You switched Meg's DNA test results. Because you want her to think her husband is the father of her baby -- but the real daddy is someone else. And I don't need a PhD to figure out that Mr. Other is your husband.

Barbara: If Paul does get through to Will, and Will forgives me, I don't think I'll be able to forgive myself. Thank you. I'll let myself out.

[Barbara leaves and Rosanna calls Eli]

Rosanna: I need to see you. Now. It's time to end this.

Aaron: I went to see Sofie earlier today at the Wagon Wheel. Cole bailed on her. Just walked off and left her. She's pretty messed up about it.

Gwen: Wait a minute, she's staying there all by herself?

Aaron: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I asked her if she wanted to stay at the farm until she can figure out what she wants to do.

Alison: You did? What did she say?

Aaron: She didn't want my help. She kicked me out.

Will: Well, maybe she just needs time to process. I'm sure she'll be okay.

Aaron: Yeah, I hope so.

Noah: Uh, what's with the face?

Luke: I talked to my grandma about you staying for Christmas and she didn't really go for it.

Noah: Ah. Did she say why?

Luke: No, but I get the feeling that she's not exactly comfortable us -- being together.

Noah: What, you mean us seeing each other?

Luke: No. I mean us -- being together.

Noah: Oh.

Holden: Hey, Mama. What's wrong?

Emma: You know, I think I just made a terrible, terrible mistake with Luke.

Will: You thinking about Sofie?

Gwen: Yeah. I feel really bad for her. You know, I know we were really hurt by what our mom's did, but she must have been just completely blind-sided by all of this.

Will: Yeah, probably. But there's not much we can do about it now. I mean, even if we tried, I think we're the last people she'd accept help from. I don't really blame her.

Gwen: I just -- I know what it feels like. You know, that was me a few years ago. I was so scared and alone and I had no idea what to do. I'm so lucky I have you.

Emma: I just -- I feel terrible. I feel terrible about not saying yes to Luke.

Holden: Why?

Emma: Well, it makes me seem like I really don't approve of the relationship. And that's just not so. I love Luke. And whoever he is, I'm behind him 100%.

Holden: Nobody doubts that.

Emma: I mean, I might have had some unease about it to begin with, but I am not some -- I'm not some homophobe! I think that Noah is a wonderful young man. I mean, the way he saw Luke through this terrible time, he's just been so caring and so committed. I mean, to tell you the truth, I wouldn't want anything less for my grandson.

Holden: Well, of course not.

Emma: But the thought of them -- being in bed under my roof, it just makes me uncomfortable. Now, if that makes me some kind of a prude, so be it. It is just -- it is just not how I was raised.

Holden: We weren't raised like that either, Mom. If Meg had come to you and asked if some boy could sleep over when she was Luke's age, you would've marched him down the driveway by his ear. And you weren't so easy on me and Lily when we were teenagers.

Emma: Oh, the things you two kids put me through. The sleepless nights. Oh, my Lord. I don't think I've ever really fully recovered.

Holden: You know what? It's not all that different with Luke.

Emma: I don't know -- maybe I'm just so sensitive because he's -- because he's gay. I think that's pretty insulting too, to tell you the truth.

Holden: Listen, Luke has made it very clear that he didn't want to be treated differently just because he was gay. You haven't done that. So why would you start now?

Meg: Hey, are you all right? You are pretty quiet, and that's very unlike you.

Craig: I guess, I just need to hear you say it again.

Meg: We're having a baby boy.

Craig: I would've been thrilled with anything, but this is just -- I guess I just can't quite believe it.

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

Eli: This is some place. How many people live here?

Rosanna: I'm not in the mood for small talk, Eli. Particularly with you. That's all yours. Provided you have what I want.

Eli: You mean this?

Will: You know, I can't believe you. Out of all the people, I figured you would understand how I am feeling.

Paul: I understand. Really, Will, I get it.

Will: And that's why you're here, because you get it. This is my life that she's messed with, Paul -- my marriage. And I grew up watching her do it to me, to you, Jen, Dad -- this sick need to control everything! And I didn't see this coming.

Paul: Yes, Will, stop. I understand. Really, really, I understand. But I was hoping that maybe you could give Mom a break this time.

Will: Why would I do that?

Paul: Because. Look, she's lost a lot of people that she loves. We all have. But, well, she's terrified she's going to lose you too.

Will: Good. She should be.

Emma: No, no, please. Sit down. I'm not here to make you leave. Here you go Sweetheart.

Luke: Thank you.

Emma: In fact, just the contrary. I would uh -- I would like to ask you to stay -- stay and have the holidays with us.

Noah: Really?

Emma: But you know, I do have certain ground rules.

Luke: Oh, what like he has to sleep in the barn?

Emma: No, no, I'm going to put you in the barn.

Luke: Oh, you are? Do I at least get a blanky?

Emma: No, no, don't push it. If you can stay, you're going to have to -- well, you're just going to have to stay on the couch in the parlor. I mean, Luke's room is going to be off-limits, at all times.

Noah: Okay.

Emma: Now, I want you to know that -- it's not because you're gay. I mean, I would be the same way with any young suitor who came calling, especially -- especially someone as handsome as you are.

Luke: You know, I do have to agree with her on that. About the equal treatment and about the handsome part.

Noah: I accept. Okay, Mrs. Snyder.

Emma: Okay. So thank you, thank you so much for changing -- for doing so much to help Luke these last few weeks. I think all that change has been because of you. You know, it's going to be wonderful, wonderful to have you with us on Christmas.

Aaron: The last thing I wanted was for Gwen and Will to get hurt, but I think we did the right thing.

Alison: I know. I know, I just hate feeling like I robbed them of something really great.

Aaron: You didn't do anything, Alison. Barbara did.

Alison: Well, that's what Gwen said. But I feel like she was just trying to be nice.

Aaron: You know what I hate? Seeing you take this on yourself. We got to do something about that.

Alison: Oh, yeah? Like what?

Aaron: Whatever it takes to cheer you up.

[Knock on door]

Gwen: Hi.

Sofie: Hey.

Gwen: How are you doing?

Sofie: I'm fine. I don't really feel much like company right now. It's nothing personal, I just need to be by myself.

Gwen: Um, wait. Actually, please. I just need to say this one thing and then I'll leave. I'm sorry.

Holden: Okay, here's the last of the Christmas decorations.

Emma: Oh, these old, old things. Oh, boy. Oh, boy, oh, boy. Boy, the mantel piece is going to be real gridlock with all these stockings toe-to-toe. So many people here.

Holden: It's gonna be just like when we were growing up.

Emma: Yes. Very loud. To think, I have to put up a stocking for Mr. Montgomery.

Holden: They're going to be here?

Emma: Oh, now, don't be like that. I mean, he's family now. Meg's married to him, and she's gonna have his baby.

Holden: Yeah, but --

Emma: No buts. No buts. If your sister can open her heart to him, I can open my home to him. For one day.

Holden: Fine. But the lump of coal -- is coming from me.

Emma: You're terrible. You're terrible. Oh, Lily's stocking. With all this talk about who's spending who, where, and what -- I mean, have you given any thought about Lily?

Meg: I'm going to take a shower.

Craig: Okay, while you do that, I will order some room service and have some food delivered up, okay?

Meg: Oh, good. 'Cause your son is craving a cheeseburger. With bacon and extra cheese.

Craig: He has his mama's appetite, huh?

Meg: Yes, he does.

[Craig picks up a picture of him with Bryant]

Craig: Bryant.

Paul: Will, you can't just cut Barbara out of your life. Trust me, it won't work. It just -- it won't. Rosanna made me realize that what Barbara did, what she did -- ultimately she did out of love.

Will: Don't give me that! I was on the receiving end of this, and it did not feel like love.

Paul: She wanted you and Gwen to have a baby so badly, and she knew that you couldn't adopt because of the time you spent in the hospital. And frankly, she feels responsible for that time.

Will: Good! She should feel responsible! She put me there!

Paul: I know. She knows that. That's why she's trying to make it up to you.

Will: Well, she can't! And you know what? I get it now. I understand why you're here, and how you think you can defend her after what she's done -- because you're the same way. The whole, I did it out of love excuse. It's the same one you used to keep Jennifer away from Johnny.

Craig: I haven't seen this picture in so long. But boy, oh boy, do I remember that face. I miss you, Buddy. [Meg comes out of the bathroom and sees Craig talking out lout to the picture and stays by the wall] Hey, I'm gonna be a father again. We just found out it's gonna be a little boy, too. What do you think of that? I want you to know that whoever this little guy turns out to be, he'll never replace you in my heart. And if I'm lucky, maybe he'll teach me to forgive myself. For all the things I did to you I didn't have the chance to say I'm sorry for. And if I am really lucky -- maybe it'll help bring us both -- a little peace. Shh.

Rosanna: Forgive me for asking, but one can never be too careful when it comes to extortion. Is that the tape from your lab?

Eli: Oh, yeah. You don't look as perky as you do right now. You were kind of under the weather at the time. But it's you, all right. Switching the DNA test results on Meg's baby. I took the tape from security as soon as I realized someone had been messing with my computer.

Rosanna: Well, give me the tape. Thank you. You can have your money now.

Emma: Have you given any thought about how you're spending the holidays?

Holden: Well, right now I'm just taking it day by day. The kids have made it pretty clear that they want to spend Christmas out here, so I think that's what we're gonna do.

Emma: What about Lily? She included? You know how she loves to spend the holidays out here, you know, all the time. I know she'd love to be with the kids.

Holden: Well, I'm not trying to keep Lily from her kids -- it's Christmas. If she wants to be with the kids, she's more than welcome to come here if she wants to be.

Emma: Have you told her that? Hmm. Maybe you should. It might be just what she wants to hear about now.

Gwen: Um, I just wanted to say that -- that Will and I, we didn't -- we didn't know that the baby was yours. Barbara told us that it was a private adoption and we had no reason to think it was you. And if we had any clue, we would've stopped it sooner. Look, what my mom and my brother did to you is really horrible, and I can't imagine what it must have felt like when you found out. So, whatever it's worth, I am sorry. That's all I have to say.

Sofie: Gwen, wait.

Aaron: Come on.

Alison: Where are we going?

Aaron: It's a surprise. What? Come on, you don't trust me?

Alison: No, I do.

Aaron: Then what are you waiting for? Come on.

Luke: Hey. Are you okay?

Noah: Yeah. Yeah. I was just thinking about your grandma. I've never met anyone like her. Somebody so -- honest and kind, and both at once. I'm so happy that I'm going to be spending the holidays here with you. I think it's going to be my best Christmas ever.

Sofie: I should've listened to you. I mean, you told me to leave Cole, and you said he'd be a terrible father. You were right.

Gwen: I really wish I hadn't been.

Sofie: Yeah, but what difference would it have made? I'd still be in the same place I am right now. Pregnant, alone and wondering how I'm going to take care of this baby.

Gwen: I don't think it's -- gonna make you feel any better, but I have been there. And I know what it feels like, so if there's anything that I can do to help --

Sofie: There isnít.

Gwen: Okay.

Paul: I can see it was a mistake to come here. I think maybe you just need some more time.

Will: Why do you feel so bad, Paul? If you did all of it out of love? I mean, that is the Ryan way, isn't it? Who cares if you lie or people get hurt? It's just your sister. Or your son. You know, as long as you did it all out of love. Right? If you really feel that then -- I'm sorry for you and Rosanna.

Rosanna: I want you to promise me something, Eli.

Eli: Anything.

Rosanna: That this is the only copy of me changing those test results.

Eli: That's it. I swear. You have my word.

Rosanna: Well, I hope for your sake that counts for something. Because you know it's funny, deep pockets cannot only buy happiness. It can also buy a lot of justice.

[Telephone rings]

Meg: Oh, I'll get that.

Craig: Oh, wait. I thought you were too stuffed to move.

Meg: I think I could get the phone.

Craig: Oh, couldn't get the remote for me.

Meg: I'll just pace myself. Hello?

Dr. Bullock: Meg, its Dr. Bullock. I just finished a full review of the results of your CVS test. Is there any chance you and your husband can come in later today to go over them?

Meg: Is there a problem?

Dr. Bullock: No. No, not really. A small abnormality in your genetic testing. Nothing to be alarmed about, but I would still like to go over them with you.

Meg: We'll be right over. That was Dr. Bullock. He wants to talk to us about my CVS test.

Craig: Why? What is it? Is there something wrong?

Meg: No. No. He said there is nothing to worry about. Craig. Hey, look at me. Our son is fine. Okay? Okay?

Dr. Bullock: Because after going over a full spectrum of your CVS results, we discovered that you are a carrier for Gaucher's disease.

Eli: He doesn't think he's a carrier, now he's demanding another test to make sure there's no mistakes.

Katie: I want a baby. You're helping me make one -- let's get this show on the road.
