Carly: Party hats, noisemakers --

Kit: Hey, how about here?

Sam: Yeah, that sounds good.

Kit: Okay, "Ring in the new year at Metro. All profits are going to be donated to the policeman's holiday fund" -- does it really have to say all that?

Carly: I told Jack we were donating all the profits and that's what we're going to do.

Sam: Okay, put that up --

Kit: Okay, you take that side, I'll take this one.

Carly: Streamers, I forgot the streamers.

Sam: You know, it's not even the real holiday.

Kit: Well, sure it is. It's federal or something.

Sam: That doesn't make it real. Basically some guy just picked a day and said this is when the calendar changes. Have a party. It's like saying daylight savings time is a holiday.

Jack: I hate to interrupt this deep philosophical discussion, but you're going to have stop what you're doing.

Kit: Okay, now this here is harassment.

Sam: Oh, whoa, we're not breaking the law --

Jack: Actually, yeah, you are, Sam.

Kit: Oh, let me guess. The "Don't get in Jack Snyder's face law?" I mean, come on, ain't it bad enough you guys are taking all our profits, you've got to harass us every chance you get too?

Carly: Hey, whoa, what's going on?

Jack: I was just telling your friends here that putting posters on these windows is against the law, so --

[Carly laughs]

Carly: You're not kidding? Well, okay, Officer, putting the posters up was my idea, so if you're going to arrest somebody, arrest me.

[Kit laughs]

Emily: Hey.

Chris: Hey. Hey, Danny boy, how's it going?

Daniel: Hey, Uncle Chris. Did Grandpa wake up again?

Emily: He's been asking non-stop about your dad. I told him if there was any news, you'd be the one to know, so --

Chris: Well, unfortunately, we have no way of knowing when Dad's going to be able to talk again.

Daniel: But he's getting better, right?

Chris: I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure of that. He's a pretty important patient to me, too.

Daniel: Maybe, I can be a doctor.

[Both laugh]

Chris: Grandpa would love that.

Daniel: He can be proud of me just like he's proud of you.

Chris: Right. Right. But hey, you know what the best part about being a doctor is, my friend? It's the equipment. We just started this brand new lab here. We've got these two really awesome electronic microscopes.

Daniel: Can I see it?

Chris: Well, only if it's okay with your mom.

Daniel: Can I?

Emily: Who am I to stand in the way of science? Okay, so while you two are off advancing the course of medicine, I'm going to go look for my mom and say hi, okay?

Daniel: Okay.

Emily: Meet you back here?

Chris: Great.

Emily: Okay. Have fun.

Daniel: Thanks --

Chris: All right, let's go.

Emily: Hi, excuse me. Is Dr. Stewart around?

Nurse #1: Oh, you're her daughter, right?

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Nurse #1: I'll page her for you.

Emily: Thank you very much. What the hell do you think you're doing?

Lily: Hello, hi. Hi.

Holden: Hi.

Lily: I exchanged that game that I got for Faith.

Holden: It would've been a great gift if she hadn't nagged me to death to buy it for her.

Lily: She nagged me, too. Leave it to our daughter to cover all her bases.

Holden: Yeah.

Lily: Yeah. Okay. I'll leave this here. Thank you.

Holden: You're welcome. What'd I do?

Lily: You have no idea how much it meant to me to spend the holidays with the family. And Luke walking -- did you have any idea that was coming?

Holden: No. I didn't. It was a surprise to all of us.

Lily: It was the best Christmas present I could've imagined. It made me believe in miracles. Believe there's always hope.

Holden: Yeah. Lily, I'm glad that you came by. Because we should talk. About the future.

Dusty: I hear Bob's talking again.

Emily: Yeah, he said Merry Christmas. That's all, Dusty.

Dusty: Well, maybe he's ready to say Happy New Year.

Emily: How are you trying to kid? You want to hear Bob Hughes say, my son gave me the stroke. And that's not going to happen.

Dusty: We'll see. Your boyfriend hasn't been telling the truth. I look forward to seeing what Bob has to say.

Holden: Being together as a family, for the first time in a long time --

Lily: It felt good, right? The way it used to be.

Holden: Yeah, yeah, it felt -- how it used to feel.

Lily: I'm so glad to hear you say that.

Holden: The way I hope that it will always feel, whenever we're all together.

Lily: Always.

Holden: But we do need to talk about the future. And since we don't have one together after New Year’s, I think we should finalize the divorce. I think that we should do it as soon as possible.

Carly: They're just posters, Jack. Announcing a fundraiser to benefit your police department. How can that possibly be against the law?

Kit: Yeah, they just make this stuff up as they go along.

Jack: I don't -- I don't write the laws, Kit. I'm just doing my job.

Carly: All right, all right -- I'm not going to go down this road. I'm really not. Because one of the reasons for having this party, for opening Metro on New Year's Eve was to start this year off fresh. And that's exactly what I'm going to do.

Jack: Good for you.

Carly: And isn't that what you're doing, Jack? But starting the year off with the woman you love? The only reason you got WOAK to cover the opening so that you can spend the evening with Katie.

Jack: No, that wasn't the only reason. Like you said, the publicity helps the Oakdale PD as well as Metro.

Carly: Did I happen to tell you the band that I booked for the evening?

Jack: No.

Carly: Yes.

Jack: No.

Carly: Mm-hmm. Infection.

Jack: Get out of town. How did you get them to come to Oakdale? On New Year’s, are you kidding me?

Carly: A little persistence and a lot of charm.

Jack: I've been working on turning Katie into a fan. Now she's going to have a chance to see them for herself.

Friend: Isn't that the freaky dude? Does that stupid act with the dummy?

Parker: Yeah. He's staying with my mom.

Sam: That cop needs to back off.

Kit: Well, he is Carly's ex. She can't exactly tell him where to go.

Sam: Well, if he's an ex, then maybe he should start acting like one. And let her get on with her life.

Kit: You got somebody in mind you want to get it on with?

Sam: Oh, yeah. "Cowboy Jack" is just dying to come to her rescue.

Kit: Baby, I think I see her with somebody taller. And a lot more flexible, you know.

[Kit laughs]

Sam: Really?

Kit: Yeah.

Emily: Why are you pushing this?

Dusty: Why would Chris lie to his mother about a fight Chris had with Bob just before Bob collapsed?

Emily: No, no. Not telling someone something isn't lying.

Dusty: Really? I guess you changed your position on that.

Emily: No, my position is none of your business, Dusty.

Dusty: It is, if it has to do with the Evan Walsh/Craig Montgomery shady research project.

Emily: Excuse me, there is nothing shady going on here. You don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about, do you?

Dusty: Bob knew what he was talking about. And he was against it.

Chris: There's a secret stash of homemade cookies at the nurse's station, why don't you go help yourself, all right?

Daniel: Cool.

Chris: I thought I made it clear to you that my father's room is off limits to you, Dusty.

Dusty: I visit whoever I want.

Chris: He's in no condition for visitors.

Dusty: Really? That's not what I heard. I heard he's up and talking.

Chris: Well, I'm not going to risk a relapse by subjecting him to unnecessary stress.

Dusty: I didn't know talking the truth was stressful.

Emily: Would you cut it out? You're not a doctor. Why won't you let Chris do his job and take care of his father?

Dusty: 'Cause that's not what he's doing. Somebody's got to keep an eye on him. Looks like it's got to be me.

Holden: You signed the separation agreement, you knew what the next step would be.

Lily: I just didn't think this step was going to happen so quickly. Was it Bonnie? Is she the one rushing things through?

Holden: No, Bonnie, as my lawyer, she wanted me to take it slow. She wanted me to try and work things out.

Lily: But you don't, obviously.

Holden: Lily, you weren't around when Natalie asked me if we were going to get back together. She saw how we were acting over Christmas, and she thought it meant that things were going back to the way they used to be. I don't want to do that. I do not want to give our kids false hope.

Lily: No, we wouldn't want that. Would we?

Holden: I think we need to make a quick, clean break. I think it would be best for everyone.

Lily: How quick are you talking about?

Holden: I was thinking that maybe we could fly to Reno after new years, and finalize the divorce.

Lily: Oh. Okay, we've spent most of our lives together, but you know, let's have a quick divorce in Reno over a couple of hours. Why not?

Holden: I think we need to make a fresh start.

Lily: What if I don't want a fresh start?

Daniel: Hey, can I see Grandpa now?

Chris: I'm afraid not. But I did wish him a Happy New Year for you.

Emily: Aww. Are you going to tell your Uncle Chris about your big plans for New Year’s Eve?

Daniel: Oh, me and my dad are going to go see the ball drop, bang some pots and pans. It's kind of dorky, but he's into it. What are you doing for New Year’s?

Chris: Well, I'll be here at the hospital for a while, taking care of your grandpa, but then -- I plan on toasting in the New Year. How about you, Emily? What are your plans?

Emily: Uh, Same as yours.

Holden: Why would you want to put things off?

Lily: I guess if you can't see a reason, then there isn't one.

Holden: I'll have Bonnie contact your lawyer.

Lily: You do that.

Holden: Lily, I don't want to rush you. If you want to talk, we can talk.

Lily: There's nothing left to talk about, obviously.

[Cell phone rings]

[Door closes]

Lily: Hello?

Dusty: Is this a bad time?

Lily: Actually, your timing couldn't be better. How are you? I haven't heard from you in awhile.

Dusty: Good. I'm glad you spent Christmas with your family. Heard Luke’s walking again. That's great news.

Lily: Yeah, at least something good came out of Christmas. How was your holiday?

Dusty: Great. You know, Bob Hughes woke up. Christmas miracles all around. No thanks to his son.

Lily: What, Chris? What did he do?

Dusty: He's doing business with Craig Montgomery, and running the hospital like it's his own personal kingdom.

Lily: Well, that can't be good.

Dusty: I'm worried about the hospital's reputation. You know, I have Jennifer’s foundation there. I got to find a way to rein Chris in before things get out of hand.

Lily: The only people that can do that are the ones on the board.

Dusty: Is it possible you could get me in on the next board meeting?

Lily: Maybe you should become the newest board member.

Dusty: The chances of that happening are nil while Chris is chief of staff.

Lily: Ah, my mother just walked in. Let me talk to her.

Dusty: I don't know if that's a good idea.

Lily: At least let me try, Dusty. All right. Buh-bye. Hello, Mother.

Lucinda: Hello, Dear.

Lily: Oh, you sound annoyed. What is it?

Lucinda: Oh, Darling. What else do you expect from me, when you continue to let Dusty ruin your life?

Parker: Dad.

Jack: Hey, Parker. Something wrong?

Parker: I was just in Old Town. And I saw Mom hanging out with those two losers staying with her.

Jack: Yeah, I saw them too. They're out getting ready for the Metro opening.

Parker: That guy Sam really creeps me out.

Jack: You're not the only one.

Parker: Then why do you let him hang out with Mom and stay in our house?

Jack: Because it's not up to me. Hey, listen, if Metro's a hit, and they start making money, then Kit and Sam will move out.

Parker: Then I hope they get rich really quick. And that Sam takes his stupid dummy and gets far away from Mom.

Sam: Hey. I'll get -- let me help you with that.

Carly: Thank you. We're never gonna be ready in time, you know that?

Sam: Oh, yes, we are. We'll be fine. So your ex was pretty rough on you today.

Carly: He was just doing his job. Protecting the fine citizens of Oakdale from unauthorized posters.

Sam: Kit said he's coming tonight?

Kit: Yeah, with his new honey.

Carly: Yeah, I'm okay with that.

Kit: Yeah, right.

Carly: I am. I want Jack to be happy. Even if he'll be ringing in the new year with Katie.

Sam: Well, you got us.

Kit: Yeah.

Carly: And you have each other. And that's great.

Sam: They say the way you spend your new year's, is the way you spend the year.

Carly: Well, I guess I'll be spending the year running the hottest club in town. So, who cares if Jack'll be spending it with Katie, huh?

Jack: I have to admit, Sam making that angel for you to give your mother was a real red flag for me.

Parker: See? The guy's completely weird. He can even make an angel seem creepy.

Jack: Listen. I wouldn't worry about it. All right? I warned him to stay away from the farm, and I warned him to stay away from you guys.

Parker: Did you warn him to stay away from Mom?

Jack: Your mother can make her own decisions.

Parker: No, but she keeps making the wrong ones. And I bet she messes up again -- big time.

Lucinda: Dusty wants to be on the hospital board? Dear.

Lily: What? Why? Why shouldn't he be?

Lucinda: Oh, Honey, let me count the ways. I mean, he's completely unsuited for the position. Oh, my heavens! I thought when I came in here, I was hoping --

Lily: What?

Lucinda: That seeing you here, making yourself at home at the farm again, that maybe Christmas wasn't entirely over for you and Holden.

Lily: No, your hopes are in vain. Holden wants a divorce ASAP.

Lucinda: And Dusty has what to do with this?

Lily: Nothing! Holden wants this divorce. I didn't not want it. I didn't ask for it.

Lucinda: So long as Dusty is in your bed, Holden won't be.

Lily: Dusty is my friend.

Lucinda: I didn't fall off a Christmas tree, Honey.

Lily: Dusty's been there for me, some of the worst times in my life. I will not turn my back on him.

Lucinda: Yeah. Yeah, but you turn your back on me, you turn your back on your family, and everything like that. For heaven's sake, Honey. Look at you. Holden is not a sophisticated man, Sweetheart. He will not tolerate, tolerate a friendship with Dusty. He won't!

Lily: I love Holden and nothing would make me happier to put my family back together.

Lucinda: But?

Lily: You -- nor Holden can tell me who my friends are.

Lucinda: Don't you have any sense of loyalty? Don't you owe him something? Some reassurance? I give up. Do whatever you want to, of course you will. Say hi to Emma. And, Darling, take it from me, caveat, warning, if you let this go on too long, and you let this divorce happen, Holden may well be gone for good.

[Knocks on door]

Carly: Beware of ex-wives bearing gifts.

Jack: What is this?

Carly: Free tickets to the party tonight for any off-duty police officers.

Jack: Oh, that's very generous of you. Thank you.

Carly: Well, we're donating all the proceeds anyway.

Jack: What do your partners think of your generosity?

Carly: Partner. Singular. And Kit is just fine with it. Why do you ask?

Jack: Because Parker was just here. He was wondering about the relationship between you and -- your non-partner.

Carly: Sam? Sam?

Jack: Yeah.

Carly: You got me, Jack. 'Cause when I see Sam, and his little dolly, I get weak in the knees. I do.

Jack: Yeah, but I've seen the way he looks at you though, Carly.

Carly: Oh, come on. He's completely devoted to Kit. And if you heard what I hear through the bedroom walls, you'd know what I mean.

Jack: Okay, all right, all right. That is way too much information. Thank you.

Carly: Parker doesn't like Sam, so he's seeing things that aren't there. But I really believe that underneath it all, Sam's a decent guy.

Jack: And I'm supposed to take your word for that?

Carly: He just wants to entertain people. He wants to make people happy.

Jack: Yeah, but I got to agree with Parker. It kind of creeps me out. And his dummy's worse.

Kit: Okay, you take the rest of the glasses out to the car while I get dressed, and then we can trade off, okay?

Sam: All right. Hey, Cowboy.

Kit: Baby, Baby, we don't have time for you to play with Cowboy Jack.

Cowboy Jack: Hey! Even a cowhand like me needs a little time to get ready for a shindig.

Kit: You're not taking that to the party, are you?

Sam: Well, of course he's going. Cowboy Jack's going to be the star of the show!

Cowboy Jack: Yee-haw!

Carly: All right. I admit it, that Cowboy Jack is not my style. And he may not be yours, but kids love it.

Jack: No, not Parker.

Carly: Well, Parker's not inclined to laugh at anything right now. And neither one of you took Sam's gift in the right spirit.

Jack: And what spirit is that?

Carly: He was trying to give Parker an opportunity to patch things up with his mother.

Jack: You know what I think? I think he wanted to give it to you, and he was using Parker to do it.

Carly: Wow, you really have been giving this a lot of thought, huh?

Jack: Because of the kids. Because of the benefit. And you better damn well hope that he keeps that dummy out of my sight tonight though, that's for sure.

Carly: Okay, I will make sure that Sam knows that Cowboy Jack is not invited. Okay? Now, I'm going to go home and get gussied up.

Jack: Hey, Carly.

Carly: Yeah?

Jack: Good luck tonight.

Carly: Thanks.

[Telephone rings]

Jack: Jack Snyder. You've got to be kidding me!

Carly: Oh, hey, Lily! Just the woman I wanted to see.

Lily: Oh, thanks.

Carly: Tickets to tonight's opening night festivities.

Lily: You don't have to do that.

Carly: Yes, I did. Because you are on official keep the owner sane duty tonight. And I hear she's going over the edge.

Lily: Oh, with an invitation like that, how can I say no?

Carly: You can't. And as you see, there are two tickets, so you can bring somebody along.

Lily: I don't know.

Carly: Yes, you do.

Lily: No, I don't.

Carly: You have bring somebody. I need a lot of people there, and you don't want to spend New Year’s Eve alone, do you?

Lily: Uhh. Okay.

Carly: Okay?

Lily: I'll bring somebody.

Carly: Great.

Lily: I'll see you there.

Carly: Okay.

Lily: It's going to be fun.

Carly: Thanks.

Lily: Good luck. Okay. Dusty, hello. Yes, you were right about my mother.

Dusty: Well, at least she's consistent.

Lily: Oh, that's a nice word for it. She is dead set against you being on the board.

Dusty: Oh, don't worry about it. I'll find another way to keep my eye on Chris.

Lily: I know you're really busy, and everything, but it is New Year’s Eve, and I have some tickets to the reopening of Metro. I thought you might want to go with me and check out your old stomping grounds, see Carly's done with the place.

Dusty: Uh, I'm not too big on parties.

Lily: I know that. But I also know that no one wants to be alone on New Year’s Eve.

Dusty: All right, it's a date. We'll drink to better times in '08.

Lily: Sounds like fun.

Dusty: Okay, I've got some things to do, I'll call you later for the details.

Lily: Okay. So I'll see you then. Oh! Hi.

Holden: Hi.

Lily: Sorry.

Holden: No, no, no. I'm the one who should be saying that. Lily, our conversation earlier, it didn't really go like I had hoped.

Lily: I agreed to sign the divorce papers and move along. Isn't that what you want?

Holden: Yeah, but I don't want us to be at each other's throats. I want us to be able to talk to each other.

Lily: I want that too.

Holden: So maybe we can sit down, maybe we could talk.

Lily: Sure. Yeah.

Holden: Okay.

Lily: Okay. I'd like that.

Holden: Are these yours?

Lily: Oh, yeah. Carly just gave me two tickets to the opening night at Metro tonight.

Holden: Oh, Jack gave me a pair.

Lily: A pair. You gonna go? Bring a date?

Holden: No. Are you?

Lily: Well, it's not really a date. Really.

Holden: Oh. So, you're going with Dusty.

Emily: Hi. Can I get a bottle of your very best champagne and two glasses, sent to Dr. Hughes' room? Thanks.

Dusty: Don't pop your cork just yet. You don't even know how the new years' is gonna turn out.

Emily: You know what, Chris and I have every reason to celebrate. He's doing a great job running the hospital, his father is on the mend. And when Bob wakes up, he's gonna be very proud of his son.

Dusty: Will he?

Emily: Yeah.

Dusty: Or will he grab his son by the ear and toss him out of the hospital like he should?

Cowboy Jack: Woo-eee! If my eyes weren't painted on, I'd be pickin' 'em up off the floor! You are one fine lookin' lady!

Kit: Thank you, Baby.

Sam: But Cowboy Jack's the one with the silver tongue, not me.

Cowboy Jack: Wait until you see the way those ladies fall all over themselves tonight at Metro! When they see me at Metro.

Kit: Oh.

Carly: Well, as much as I'd like to see the ladies of Oakdale at your feet, Cowboy Jack, I'm afraid you're not invited.

Cowboy Jack: You tellin' me I ain't welcome at your establishment? Well, if I didn't know better, I'd say this purty little lady didn't like me.

Carly: No, no, no. [Doorbell rings] It's not that, Cowboy Jack. It's just that we -- oh, hi. I was just talking about -- what's wrong?

Jack: This is U.S. Marshal Brewster. He's a warrant for Kit's arrest.

Carly: There's got to be some kind of mistake here.

Sam: And your ex made it.

Kit: Look, Sam, just calm down, okay?

Marshal: There's no mistake. The warrant is for one Katherine, aka Kit Fowler.

Carly: Well, what's the charge?

Jack: Well, apparently someone filed a report with the Idaho police accusing Kit of forging checks.

Kit: Forging checks? Man, that ain't my deal. You got the wrong woman.

Carly: You see? Just like I said, a mistake has been made.

Marshal: The checks were sent across state lines. And I've processed all the necessary papers with the local authorities.

Carly: You helped him do this?

Jack: Carly, it's my job.

Kit: But I didn't do anything.

Marshal: It's not my decision whether you're innocent or guilty. That's up to the people of the state of Idaho.

Sam: Wait, wait. You're taking Kit back to Idaho?

Carly: When?

Marshal: Tonight, Ma'am.

Kit: You got to be kidding me! No!

Carly: No. No, please. It's New Year’s Eve! We have a club to open! Please. Please don't do this to me! Look, Jack, give us a little more time. There's got to be something you can do.

Jack: Carly, there's nothing I can do. This is out of my hands.

Kit: Yeah, well I bet it was all your idea to start with. You've been trying to get rid of me all along.

Lily: I'm going to the reopening of Metro with Dusty, so if you wanna take a date, I'm fine with that.

Holden: No. Faith, Nat, and I have a date to watch "The Twilight Zone" marathon.

Lily: Ah. Well make sure you cover Natalie’s eyes at the scary parts.

Holden: She says she wants to keep her eyes open this year. I guess a New Year calls for new traditions. Happy New Year. Have a great time with Dusty.

Lily: I intend to.

Dusty: Your boyfriend's headed for a fall. It's only a matter of time.

Emily: I refuse to have this conversation with you. Nothing you do or say is gonna change my mind about Chris.

Dusty: You're standing up for this dude who doesn't even deserve you.

Emily: What are you afraid of? You afraid he's gonna sleep with my sister and then not tell me? Oh, that's right -- that was you.

Dusty: None of you guys ended up in the hospital because of me. Can your boyfriend say the same?

Emily: I know that Chris will never hurt me the way you did.

Dusty: Of course he can't hurt you. You don't care enough about him.

Emily: That's ridiculous.

Dusty: The only reason you're with him is 'cause you're too scared to be with me.

Emily: No, I'm too smart to be with you.

Dusty: The passion isn't quite there though, is it?

Emily: Infuriation is not love, Dusty.

Dusty: What do you have with Chris?

Emily: You have no idea what I feel.

Jack: All I did was process the paperwork and escort the marshal here. None of this was my idea.

Carly: Jack, can't you at least talk to him? Get us a little more time?

Jack: I'll see what I can do. No promises.

Carly: Okay, I know. Just even a day would help.

Jack: A word?

Kit: Carly, I'm not dressed for jail.

Carly: I know. You look beautiful. And all the customers at Metro are going to say the same thing tonight.

Kit: You really think so?

Carly: Yes. Yes! I'm sure that Jack can get us a little more time, you know?

Nurse Jan: I've got it Dr. Hughes, I won't let Dusty Donovan near your father.

Chris: Thanks.

Emily: Hey. Hey. How late are you gonna be here tonight?

Chris: Longer than I'd like, but I got to make sure things are covered here. Dusty's out to get me, and I can't let my father get caught in the crossfire.

Emily: Why is it every conversation we have the focus is Dusty?

Chris: Because every time I turn around, the guy is on my case. What happened? You were fine when you left here with Daniel and now --

Emily: Ugh! I was in the bar, I was ordering us a bottle of champagne --

Chris: What is it? What is it?

Emily: And I realize, it's gonna be like a week until we actually get to enjoy the champagne. I want to be with you. Alone, with you. Okay? Nobody else. I want a Dusty-free night. Is that too much to ask?

Carly: Sam, well, you'd be going too, wouldn't you?

Kit: No, no, no. No, I can't let you do that, okay?

Sam: Well, no I can't let you go by yourself.

Kit: Sam, Sam, Sam. We can't leave Carly here to open the club by herself, okay? If they take me tonight, you got to promise me you're going to stay here.

Sam: No, I really should --

Kit: Promise me, please!

Sam: I promise.

Carly: Okay. All right. But it's not going to come to that. Okay? [Door opens] Jack?

Jack: My hands are tied. Kit's got to go, now.

Kit: If that's the way it is, then that's the way it is.

Carly: No. You'll fight this.

Kit: Yeah, we will. But for now, we got to kill our opening. So just make sure you take lots of pictures, okay, Partner?

Carly: All right, I will.

Kit: Okay. Bye, Baby.

Sam: Bye. Take care.

Kit: You know, I always do. Just look after yourself, okay? And look after Carly too.

Sam: I will. You'll be all right.

Kit: I will.

Sam: All right.

Kit: I know.

Marshal: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.

Sam: Why don't you go along with your buddy?

Jack: Why don't you whittle a partner for Cowboy Jack while I talk to Carly alone, please? Unless of course, you're aching to spend New Year’s Eve in jail yourself. Are you going to have to cancel this opening tonight?

Carly: I'll be fine.

Jack: You sure? Least I can do is call Katie, and I call the rest of the press --

Carly: No, no, no. Katie and her crew are welcome to film the grand reopening of Metro. We're gonna make a ton of money for that charity. Don't you worry about a thing, Jack. You're in good hands.

Jack: Yeah, your hands. And his. Maybe we should cancel.

Lily: Do you suddenly have a desire to go shopping?

Lucinda: Oh, Honey, for heaven's sake. I ran into Holden outside the door there.

Lily: That's a coincidence, because so did I.

Lucinda: He told me!

Lily: Yeah, what?

Lucinda: That you're going out on New Year’s Eve with Dusty.

Lily: Yes! I'm going out with Dusty. And who I go out with is none of your business.

Lucinda: Darling, of all the old acquaintances that should be forgot, he tops the list.

Lily: I remember not too long ago, that you really liked Dusty, and you hated Holden. Hmm?

Lucinda: Well, Sweetheart, Holden has grown on me. And yes, indeed I have always loved Dusty, however, if he is the friend that you claim he is, he would leave you alone.

Lily: Okay, wait. I have to get the score card straight. Dusty is bad, Holden is good. But the good one doesn't want anything to do with me any more.

Lucinda: Sweetheart, when you get tired, and you will, of the wrong man in your bed, I hope it's not too late. And don't say "Mother never told me."

Lily: Oh, you're predicting the future now?

Lucinda: Yes.

Lily: Okay.

Lucinda: Absolutely. Absolutely, it's inevitable. If you continue this affair, it's just going to be a mess across the board. And, Honey, I want to wish you a Happy New Year, I do. I do wish you a Happy New Year, but if you persist in this -- it's not in the cards.

Emily: Nobody is going to listen to Dusty. Ugh! Can we just stop having this conversation, please, and start having some fun?

Chris: Oh, I don't know. I don't know.

Emily: Please? Listen, if anything -- if anything goes wrong, if you're father needs you, the nurse will beep you, okay? You could be here in a matter of minutes. Please?

Chris: I just think my arm has just successfully twisted.

Emily: Good. I thought I was going to have to get rough with you.

Chris: Ah, you promise?

Emily: If you promise to fill me with the very best champagne.

Chris: Emily Stewart, I'm going to give you a New Year’s Eve you will never forget.

Carly: Just wait until you see it, Jack. It's completely remodeled, the place looks great, Infection up there on the stage, rocking the house.

Jack: That alone will have everybody waiting in line to get in, you're right.

Carly: So, you should probably head home and change up. You know, cop or no cop, there is a dress code.

Jack: I will see you later.

Carly: Okay. Oh! Oh! Tonight is going to be a complete disaster!

Sam: No, it's not.

Carly: You look great.

Sam: Well, why don't you run upstairs and change so I can say the same thing about you.

Carly: Uh, no. No, I can’t. There's too much to do --

Sam: No, no. Nothing is going to happen tonight that the two of us can't take care of, together.

Carly: And you almost make me believe that.

Sam: Why don't you work on believing it while you're up there getting dressed? Go!

Jack: Hmm.

Parker: I found these. Do they help?

Jack: Nice try, but I think they kind of clash with dress shoes. No, your uncle Brad keeps a spare pair hidden around here someplace. Oh, and I expect you to be on your best behavior for Aunt Emma tonight.

Parker: Oh, about tonight, I was thinking --

Jack: No.

Parker: I haven't even asked yet.

Jack: You have a curfew for a reason, and I don't want you out on the streets, especially on a night like this.

Parker: Where are you taking Katie?

Jack: I'm not taking Katie anywhere. I am going to see her at the party at Metro.

Parker: You're going to meet Katie at Mom's party?

Jack: Well, it's not your mom's party, it is a fundraiser to benefit that policeman's holiday fund.

Parker: That's how Mom got you to go, isn't it?

Jack: No, she didn't -- okay, but it's also how I got Kim to agree to send Katie. I told you that I was planning on getting Katie back by New Year’s, and by my watch, I still have a few hours left.

Parker: That's great, Dad, but --

Jack: But?

Parker: Mom's mom. So lots of luck getting back together with Katie at her party.

Carly: All right. We need to be sure that we have enough champagne glasses, right? Oh, has the champagne even been delivered? Do you know? Have you seen it?

Sam: Uh, don't worry. We'll just serve them beer instead. They're both yellow and fizzy.

Carly: Sam, you're not helping.

Sam: What do you need me to do? Kit may not be here, but I still am.

Carly: I know. Sam, it must be hard for you, being without her.

Sam: Don't worry about me. I just don't want to let you down.

Carly: And I don't want to let Jack down.

Sam: Why are you so hung up on what he thinks?

Carly: Because I'm the one who talked him into getting the police station to sponsor and publicize this event. If it doesn't work out, then he's gonna look bad.

Sam: Oh, and that's all that matters?

Carly: No. It's not just that. I have a lot riding on this, you know? I've had a lot of failures over the last year, and I don't want this to this to be another one.

Sam: I won't let that happen.

Carly: Really?

Sam: Yeah.

Carly: Well then, why don't you go in the back and see if the champagne is there.

Sam: Okay, I'll do that.

[Elevator dings]

Emily: Let me help you. Here. Here. Oh, these cufflinks look so good with this shirt.

Chris: Oh, what can I say? My girlfriend has great taste.

Emily: That's so funny, my boyfriend has great taste. No, really. I love my necklace. Thank you.

Chris: It's what I feel for you, Emily.

Emily: Well, I'm just happy I convinced you to take a night off at the hospital and spend New Year’s with me. Come on.

Lily: Oh, Steve, just the man I wanted to see.

Steve: Anything I can do for you, Mrs. Snyder?

Lily: Yes! You can bring the Lakeview deluxe breakfast up to Mr. Donovan's suite in the morning, but don't bring up the tray too early.

Steve: Brunch it is. Have a Happy New Year.

Lily: I certainly hope I do. Same to you. [Cell phone rings] I'll be right down, Dusty.

Dusty: Hey, I'm running late. Can I meet you at Metro?

Lily: Sure. Sure, I'll meet you there.

Jack: Aha! Success!

Parker: Brad's extra pair?

Jack: Never try to hide anything from a cop. Okay, behave yourself. And please, don't tell Sage that if she crosses her eyes and jumps up and down at midnight she can fly. That's dangerous.

Parker: It's J.J.'s idea, not mine.

Jack: I don't care. Don't do it. Happy New Year, Parker Snyder.

Parker: Happy New Year, Dad. And tell Katie I say Happy New Year too. And that I'm sorry.

Jack: For what?

Parker: For whatever Mom's going to do to mess up your night.

Carly: Oh, come on. Oh, who the hell invented electronic cash registers anyway? No, I don't have a password! I shouldn't need a password!

Sam: And people look at me funny because I talk to a dummy.

Carly: Apparently I need a password.

Sam: I know, I heard. Well, maybe just call the company.

Carly: I did. I tried. And who would put something as important as a password on a packing slip? And then Kit had to hide all the packing slips somewhere! And I don't know where they are!

Sam: Okay, okay. Relax, relax! Okay. We'll just work around this.

Carly: Oh, I don't know. I don't know because if we can't get the cash registers to work then we can't sell drinks. If we don't sell drinks then we can't make money. And Carly Tenney is a failure one more time!

Dusty: Bob. Bob.

Sam: Feeling better?

Carly: I think so. A little bit.

Sam: Well, I found the champagne. And I also I reprogrammed the cash register, so now we can serve as many drinks as our patrons can pour down their throats.

Carly: Oh, thanks, Sam. I have to admit though, I'm still a little bit worried that we're not going to be ready in time. People are going to start arriving any minute now, you know?

Sam: We're gonna be ready. And we're gonna give them a night to remember. I will not let you end your year as a failure.

Dusty: Bob. Do you remember being with Chris right before your stroke? Do you remember what happened?

On the next -- "As the World Turns"

Dusty: He remembers what happened right before his stroke.

Jack: Carly, is something going on that I don't know about?

Noah: This would be a really nice time to dance.

Luke: Yeah?

Emily: Oh, I hate you! I hate you!

Dusty: No, you don't. You know what your problem is?

Emily: No, Dusty, tell me what my problem is.

Dusty: You still love me.

All: Happy New Year!
