Carly: And so I know that tonight is going to be a huge success, and everything is going to go off without a hitch, right? [Sound of glass breaking] Does anyone have an aspirin?

Sam: Uh, here you go. Right here.

Carly: Thank you.

Sam: You know, they say you can't make an omelet without cracking a couple of eggs.

Carly: Sam, I'm not making an omelet. I'm opening a club here. Do you have any idea how much those glasses cost me?

Sam: I know, Carly. Breathe. It's going to be all right.

Carly: The list I gave you --

Sam: All done.

Carly: My horoscope said this was no time for new ventures. I shouldn't have done this. I should have gotten a degree in library science or something.

Sam: Oh, well, then the library would be packed. With guys.

Carly: Shouldn't the band be here by now? Don't you think -- they said they wanted to do a sound check. They should be here, I think.

Sam: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll call and see where they are. Okay. Whoever wrote that horoscope obviously hadn't seen that dress.

[Lily walks in]

Lily: The place looks good.

Carly: Hey --

Lily: You look good.

Carly: You look good.

Lily: Thanks. Thanks, is Dusty here?

Carly: No, no, he's not here yet.

Waiter: Uh, Carly? I need the keys for the wine cellar.

Carly: Okay. Stay here. Have a drink --

Lily: Okay --

Carly: On the house --

Lily: Good --

Carly: I'll be back.

Lily: I like that.

Carly: Okay.

Lily: Dusty, where are you?

Dusty: Bob, do you remember what happened right before your stroke? You do remember, don't you?

Chris: I'm really sorry.

Emily: It's okay.

Chris: No, it's not. I know you don't want to be hanging out here tonight.

Emily: I said its okay. Really. Go check on your dad, and make sure his chart looks okay. And I'll go say happy New Year’s to my mother.

Chris: Where the hell were you?

Nurse Jan: I was just --

Chris: I gave you explicit orders not to leave my father alone.

Luke: Hey, what are you doing here all alone?

Holden: I got stood up. Faith and Natalie are going to a slumber party. I'm going to have watch the "Twilight Zone" marathon -- alone.

Luke: Well, why don't you come to Metro with us?

Holden: Are you kidding me? Its New Year's, you and Noah are going to the hot new club in town. The last thing you need is to drag your old man along with you.

Luke: Well, it's not like we'd talk to you or hang out with you or anything. No, seriously. Come on. It's New Year’s. It's a party. Have fun.

Holden: Nah, I'd rather not.

Luke: Because you don't want to see Mom there with Dusty.

Lily: Hi, it's Lily Snyder. I was wondering, is Mr. Donovan waiting in the lounge for me? We might have gotten our signals crossed. Oh. Of course, I'll try his cell phone. Okay. Thank you.

Dusty: We don't have much time. Tell me what you remember.

Bob: Chris.

Carly: Hey, did you talk to the band?

Sam: I did. I left a message with the manager. But, as long as you confirmed, we're going to be all right. I mean, there's no way the band's going to blow off a gig on New Year’s Eve. Why are you looking like that?

Carly: Oh, Sam. I think I forgot to confirm.

Sam: Okay, well, that doesn't mean they're not going to show up.

Carly: Right, no, because they have to. They're the reason that Jack agreed to do this. The band is the reason that Katie is coming to cover the opening. Oh, Sam, this could be very, very bad.

Jack: What could be?

Katie: Um, how about right around here, is that good?

Cameraman: Yeah.

Brad: Sure seems good to me.

Katie: I thought I made it perfectly clear that I didn't want you here.

Brad: Katie, Katie -- you're embarrassing Fred.

Cameraman: No, she's not.

Katie: Go away.

Brad: I can't let you do New Year’s Eve without a date. You don't everyone thinking you're a loser, do you?

Chris: I hope you know you are in serious trouble. You son of a -- call security, get them up here immediately -- what the hell do you think you were doing?

Dusty: He remembers.

Bartender: Can I freshen that up for you?

Lily: Um, no, thanks. I'll wait for my date. He'll be here soon. Thank you.

Bartender: No problem.

Katie: You really think having you as my date keeps me from looking like a loser? I'd say it would be conclusive proof.

Brad: I remember when you used to mean the mean things you said.

Katie: Brad. I am working. I'm not at the party, I'm not on a date, I'm working, so, adios. What are you still doing here?!

Brad: Hey, the party's just getting started. And you know how I feel about parties.

Carly: There's no problem, Jack. It's just that -- the noisemaker person sent the wrong noisemakers.

Sam: Yeah, they're kind of quiet.

Jack: The noisemaker person?

Sam: They're kind of --

Jack: Okay, if the noisemakers don't make any noise, I can live with that. But I'm out at the end of a very large limb here, so everything else has to go right.

Carly: It will. It will, Jack. You and your cop friends will all have a wonderful time.

Jack: Where's the band?

Carly: What?

Jack: I wanted to see the band before they -- before they went on. J.J. wants an autograph from the lead guitarist, what's the -- what's the guy's name?

Carly: No, no! No, no, no, that's very bad luck. Didn't you know that?

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

Carly: Look, there's Katie with a little camera. Why don't you go and give her an interview, I'm sure the donations will come rolling in. Okay, so, if the band doesn't show up, maybe Jack won't notice.

Jack: I really appreciate you covering this.

Katie: Well, the show's called "Oakdale Now" and this is Oakdale Now.

Jack: Hey, look -- the band -- you're going to love the band. You still have that CD I burned for you?

Katie: I do.

Jack: Maybe, when they play that song that I know you like -- you could save me a dance?

Katie: I don't know, Jack, I am working --

Jack: You can't work all night. Just one dance, okay?

Katie: Sure, why not?

Jack: Thank you. You just made my night. Now, I've got to go do one of my favorite things in the world, give a speech.

Holden: Luke, you know me. I'm not a big fan of parties.

Luke: Especially ones where Mom's there with some other dude. Look, we don't have to go to Metro. We could go somewhere else -- somewhere more depressing --

Holden: You know what? I'm perfectly fine staying here, watching the marathon.

Noah: Hi. Happy New Year, Luke. Happy new year, Mr. Snyder.

Holden: Oh, same to you. Go. Get out of here. Cut a rug.

Luke: Oh, oh, cut a rug?

Holden: Yeah, leave me alone -- me and my cocoa. Go. Get out of here.

Luke: Wow. You look great.

Noah: So do you. I actually brought a change of clothes. I was afraid we might be dressed alike.

Luke: Will you just hold on, one second? Dad, look, I know this is in direct violation of orders, but I'm going to give you some advice. If she's moving on, so should you. Don't sit here and feel sorry for yourself. Next to me, you're the coolest guy I know.

Chris: What are you talking about? What did my dad say to you?

Dusty: I got to say, you look scared. And you know what? You should be.

Chris: You're the one that should be scared. What you just did to my father was criminal.

Dusty: I asked him a question. And he answered.

Chris: He can't answer questions. Get him out of this hospital now! If you ever come near my father again, I will have you arrested.

Security officer: Come on.

Emily: What happened?

Dusty: Ask your boyfriend.

Jack: So, please designate a driver and have a great time tonight, everybody. Happy New Year.

[Cheers and applause]

Luke: It's okay.

Noah: I'm just a little nervous, all right?

Luke: Why? It's just a date.

Noah: Could you cut me some slack, okay? This is technically my first date in public with a guy. Hey, there's your mom. She doesn't look too happy.

Luke: What she looks is alone.

Lily: Hey, Guys.

Luke: Mom, you look beautiful.

Lily: You look great. Look at you both.

Luke: So, where's Dusty?

Lily: Um, he's not here yet. But he'll be here soon.

Luke: Do you want us to wait with you?

Lily: No, no, no, you, Guys, what -- you want to hang out with your mom tonight? No, I don't think so. You go have fun. He'll be here any minute.

[Holden remembering]

Luke: If she's moving on, so should you.

Holden: He's not always wrong.

Dallas: Well, another productive year, spending New Year’s Eve with my cousin.

Bonnie: Oh, come on, whatever happened to that nurse?

Dallas: Uh, oh, no -- she -- she --

Bonnie: What?

Dallas: She wasn't a Bulls fan.

Bonnie: Oh, Dallas, I'm so sorry. [Cell phone rings] You know what? She should have told you that first thing.

Dallas: Next time, she will.

Bonnie: Hello?

Holden: Bonnie, Holden.

Bonnie: Oh, hey, hey, what's up?

Holden: Uh, nothing, really. I just -- I was wondering if you had any plans tonight. I know this is kind of last minute.

Bonnie: Well, actually, I was heading to Metro with Dallas. Why don't you join us?

Holden: You know, I'd rather skip Metro. You go ahead. You have a good time.

Bonnie: Wait, no wait, wait, wait you know there is more than one place in town. How about Lakeview? Lakeview, how about Lakeview in half an hour or so?

Holden: My night just got more interesting.

Bonnie: Yeah, mine, too.

Carly: Oh, stay. Have another glass of champagne, the band will be here any minute. This is going well.

Sam: Carly, so, I got a hold of the manager. When you didn't confirm, he booked them another gig.

Carly: But I gave him a deposit --

Sam: He said he mailed it back to you.

Carly: I -- I have a stack a mail on my desk.

Sam: You've been busy. Look, I've been a performer.

Carly: Oh, no, no --

Sam: No, no, no --

Carly: No, Sam, really. Jack is going to be mad enough when he finds out there's no band. If he had to sit through Cowboy Jack, he's going to go ballistic. I'll take care of it.

Jack: Here you go.

Brad: You can't be too careful with alcohol when you're trying to get pregnant.

Katie: You know, there's no one like your brother when it comes to breaking the ice.

Brad: It's good.

Carly: Gwen, it's me. Um, would you give me a call? I'm sort of in a situation where I need a singer immediately. So, please, when you get the message, call me, okay? She's got some nerve, going out on New Year’s.

Katie: Is something wrong?

Jack: Making any resolutions this New Year’s? I have a few suggestions for you.

Brad: You're not helping her.

Jack: Stop being a jackass 24/7.

Brad: She didn't think she was going to be working this New Year’s. She thought she's be at home, with her husband.

Jack: Oh, that's right. Yeah, we were married and then the whole world blew up.

Brad: Stop following her around, stop making her rise to the occasion.

Jack: Stop telling me what to do.

Brad: I mean, she wants to move on. Let her. Let her move on with her life.

Jack: So you can keep on getting on with her. Its funny how my moving on works out so well for you. Always did.

Carly: So you can see how excited the crowd is.

Jack: Right.

Carly: Well, excuse me, I have to go. I've got lots to do.

Jack: Something's definitely wrong.

Katie: Fred, take a break.

Cameraman: Okay, I'll be outside.

Katie: Thanks.

Jack: Would you mind sitting down? There's something I want to ask you. Please, just -- just a minute.

Katie: Sure, yeah.

Jack: Um, I was wondering -- well, um --

Brad: Don't mind me.

Carly: I don't think I have a choice. I just have to tell everybody that -- that I messed up. Not that anybody would have trouble believing that.

Sam: Carly, let me do this. Let me do it.

Carly: Okay, but just you. No little wooden friends, right?

Sam: This just might turn out better than you think.

Carly: Nothing ever turns out better than I think.

[Noisemaker blows]

Jack: You better back off, or we will be taking this outside.

Brad: Ooh, it's not a police state, Jack. As much as you'd like it to be.

Bouncer: Jack, there is a problem with the guest list, can you come take a look?

Jack: Fine. Yeah, now's your chance to exit gracefully. Use it.

Brad: How about them Bulls, huh?

Katie: How about you making all my decisions for me, huh?

Brad: Huh?

Katie: Don't "Huh" me. You butt in every time Jack tries to talk to me. You do everything you can to tick him off. Just, stop acting like a jealous brat or the whole baby-making thing is off.

Jack: Carly? Carly, I need a copy of the guest list. People are leaving.

Carly: Some -- some are.

Jack: When are you going to tell me what's really going on here?

Carly: Now?

Luke: Hey, Mom, are you leaving?

Lily: I am going to leave. I spoke to Dusty. I'm meeting him at the Lakeview.

Luke: Oh, okay. Well, Happy New Year.

Lily: Happy New Year to you, too. Have fun, okay?

Luke: That jerk just stood her up. And she's too embarrassed to say anything about it.

Chris: I don't know how long he was in that room. I don't know what he said to my dad --

Emily: I can't believe this. Is your dad okay?

Chris: It has to have upset him. I ordered a new evaluation to make sure there's no repercussions.

Emily: I am so sorry, Babe. I'm so sorry.

Chris: Donovan -- he's not going to stop until I'm out of this hospital.

Emily: No. I'm putting an end to this right now.

Chris: Emily, I don't want you dealing that guy. It's not your problem.

Nurse Jan: The doctor's finished.

Chris: Sorry, I have to go talk to the neurologist.

Emily: It's okay. It's all right. You -- you go take care of your dad, go. Go.

Dusty: You're getting rid of the wrong guy. You know that, right, Nick?

Guard: Remember what Dr. Hughes said. Next time, there'll be criminal charges.

Dusty: Yeah, you might be right about that. I'll see you. You forgot to call Lily.

Emily: What the hell did you think you were doing?

Jack: So, I got all these people here, charged them the moon for -- well, for nothing.

Carly: Not nothing.

Jack: Okay, it seems like it, Carly.

Sam: So, Oakdale. Happy New Year! Happy New Year.

Jack: No, no, tell me this isn't happening.

Sam: I know you've been waiting a long time. But I think that, what's going to happen next, will be well worth the wait.

Jack: He pulls that dummy out, I've shoving it where the sun don't shine!

Sam: I'm going to be gone just for a couple of minutes, but then I'm going to come back, and introduce you to a friend of mine.

Jack: You stop him. You stop him or I will.

Dusty: Did your boyfriend send you to find out what Bob told me?

Emily: No, Dusty. I came here on my own, to tell you to leave that poor, sick man alone.

Dusty: Oh, so, you're protecting Bob. That's what you're doing.

Emily: Dusty, this thing with Chris. It has to stop. Right here. Right now.

Jack: I just have to handle this, but I still want to talk to you, okay?

Katie: Okay. Fine.

Brad: There's no band, there's nothing for you to cover, and he wants you to stick around so he can talk --

Katie: He's not the one I'm mad at, Brad. You are.

Brad: Okay, be mad at both of us. But be mad someplace else. You don't have to stick around here until he has time for you. You don't have to keep smiling. You don't have to be around a bunch of people who know what happened to you.

Katie: All right, shut up, okay? And get me out of here.

Sam: Carly, I can do it. I can do it.

Jack: Carly, make him stop.

Carly: Go for it.

Sam: You won't be sorry.

Jack: Yes -- yes, you will.

Sam: Okay, B.B. King has Lucille. I want to introduce you to Esther. And she rocks.

[Electric guitar plays]

Bob: Chris.

Chris: I'm right here, Dad.

Nurse Jan: Is there anything you want me to do, Dr. Hughes?

Chris: Just leave us alone, okay? Dad, I can tell you're trying to say something, but it can wait. I don't think it's a good idea for you to be pushing yourself right now.

Bob: No -- important --

Chris: Look, it's your health that is important. Whatever Dusty said, it doesn't matter. It just –

Emily: Do you have any idea how serious what you did was? Bob is at risk, stress is what caused the stroke in the first place --

Dusty: Yeah, stress, caused by Chris.

Emily: Oh, that's right because now you know -- you know everything and you can do anything, right? Because you're God -- Dusty's God, Chapter 465.

Dusty: Well, Bob wants me to know what happened. I'm trying to protect this hospital, in which I have a lot invested.

Emily: You're not. You're trying to punish Chris because I'm with him and not you.

Dusty: You know, Chris is acting like he's trying to protect his father but that's not what he's doing.

Emily: You're lying. You're lying, Dusty. To me and to yourself.

Chris: His BP spiked, get me two and a half milligrams of Enalipril, stat.

Resident: Two and a half? Should we consult with Dr. Foster?

Chris: You just got a direct order from the chief of staff.

Resident: But Sir, that dosage could bring on another episode. Or worse.

Chris: Do as you're told. Now. It'll be okay. It's going to be okay.

Dusty: All right, you want the truth? I didn't like it when you came back with him.

Emily: You didn't like it?

Dusty: Yeah, I was worried. About you.

Emily: You were worried about me? You walk all over me, you sleep with my sister, and you're afraid that Chris is going to hurt me?

Dusty: Well, you can't trust me, I guess you got me there. But that doesn't mean you can trust him.

Emily: You can't -- you can't compare the two of you, you can't! Chris will never hurt me, not the way you did --

Dusty: Chris --

Emily: Nobody could --

Dusty: Chris is dangerous. He's a liar. He won't even let his old man get in the way.

Emily: What happened to Bob is killing Chris.

Dusty: And Chris is killing Bob!

Emily: I hate you. I hate you.

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

Emily: Yeah, I do -- no, Dusty, tell me what my problem is!

Dusty: You still love me. Just like I still love you.

Bonnie: Hey, Lily.

Lily: Bonnie, hi. It's like Valentine’s Day around here. Everybody travels in twos.

Bonnie: Oh, right. I know, I mean, during -- after a divorce, holidays can be really rough.

Lily: Yeah, you seem to be doing all right. You look beautiful.

Bonnie: Thank you.

Lily: They're having a party at Metro. A New Year’s Eve party, you should go by there. You definitely wouldn't be alone.

Bonnie: Yeah, I -- I actually have plans.

Lily: Oh.

Bonnie: Happy New Year, Lily.

Lily: Happy New Year.

[Sighs]

Holden: It's just like riding a horse. It'll come back.

[Electric guitar playing]

Luke: So, do you want to -- as my dad so nerdily put it, go cut a rug?

Noah: Why, that would be a no.

Luke: Are you scared?

Noah: No.

Luke: Liar.

Noah: You're on a cane. Okay, the last thing I want is for you to get hurt.

Luke: No, the last thing you want is for people to think that this isn't just two guys hanging out. That we're actually on a date.

Noah: Hey, Luke, you know sometimes you make me feel like I'm earning a gay merit badge.

Luke: Well, that could be fun.

[Applause]

Sam: Thank you. Thank you.

Carly: Well, looks like the holiday fund has a hit on its hands. And you'll probably get loads of donations when Katie plays this on "Oakdale Now."

Jack: But -- yeah, wait a minute. Where -- Katie? Excuse me. Where --

Sam: Here's one of the couples in the crowd. Sweet little love song.

Luke: I can't possibly hurt myself dancing to this.

Noah: You think I'm a coward, don't you?

Luke: No, I don’t. And I shouldn't rag on you. You're here with me and that's enough. Really.

Noah: Hmmm.

Luke: Hmmm, what?

Noah: I was just thinking. This would be a really nice time to dance.

Luke: Yeah.

Noah: Just one question. Who leads?

Emily: That's some ego you got there. This is not a discussion about us. This is me telling you to leave Chris and his father alone.

Dusty: I'm telling you that Chris is dangerous. And I don't want you to be next.

Emily: Dusty, listen carefully to me. I'm not your concern any more.

Dusty: Well, that's not really your call, Emily. Because nothing you say to me changes the way I feel about you.

Emily: Maybe I can't change how you feel. But I'm not going to stand here and let you harass Chris.

Dusty: You won't consider the possibility that Chris is dangerous and he could end up hurting you?

Emily: Hurt me -- what, so you think he's going to go off and sleep with my sister or something?

Dusty: Is that all you got? Me and your sister? Me and your sister? It doesn't make me wrong about this guy.

Emily: Okay, clearly this conversation is going nowhere. So, I am finished talking.

Dusty: No. Don't go.

Emily: Let go of me, Dusty.

Dusty: Don't go.

Emily: Dusty, let go.

Dusty: I can't. And I don't think you want me to.

Chris: I'm sorry.

Noah: No one even noticed.

Luke: See? Nobody cares.

Noah: Luke, are you happy?

Luke: Yeah. So, you want to go somewhere -- somewhere else, a little more private?

Noah: Yeah.

Holden: Hey.

Bonnie: Hey. Have you been waiting long?

Holden: No, no, I just got here.

Bonnie: I hear that you're supposed to keep guys waiting. But, seeing that I'm wide open on New Year’s Eve, I don't think delay tactics would fool you.

Holden: You know what, you just got into town. I can guarantee you, this time next year, you won't be alone.

Bonnie: I'm really glad you called. I don't really like New Year’s Eve parties --

Holden: Oh, you know, you can always count on me for a quiet, boring evening. I always used to tell Lily -- you know, I'm not going to say that.

Bonnie: Holden, you've been together forever. You have four kids together. You're going to talk about her. Unless you have one of those memory erasers.

Holden: I don’t. Sometimes I really wish I did.

Bonnie: Me, too. So, you know what? I think the two of us have something in common. Besides basketball.

Holden: Yeah, what's that?

Bonnie: I don't think either one of us is going to mind saying goodbye to 2007.

Holden: You know what? You're right about that. And I think we should drink to it.

Lily: Damn. That's a good idea. Let him feel sorry for you. Happy New Year, Holden.

Katie: I keep telling you, it's closed.

Brad: Vienna gave me a key. So we could have a private party.

Katie: I don't feel like partying in any sense of the word. Will you please take me home?

Brad: I will. After some ice cream.

Katie: Okay, after ice cream, after you take me home, then you leave. Understood?

Brad: Peretti, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Carly: Thanks for coming. Come again. Tell your friends.

Patron #1: We're going to --

Patron #2: Especially if that guy plays again.

Sam: I have said this before, you gave me a break when most wouldn’t. I hope I didn't let you down.

Carly: Let me down? Sam, you were great! You were great!

Emily: You are wrong. You're wrong. I want you to leave me alone.

Dusty: All right, tell me this first. Why did you come after me?

Emily: I told you. I came here to tell you to leave Chris alone.

Dusty: Is that all?

Emily: What else would there be, Dusty?

[Dusty kisses Emily. And Emily kisses him back]

Lily: So you haven't seen Mr. Donovan at all?

Desk clerk: No, sorry.

Lily: Uh, I was going to have a breakfast set up to Mr. Donovan's suite tomorrow morning. We can just cancel that.

Desk clerk: Of course. Happy New Year, Mrs. Snyder.

Lily: Happy New Year.

Sam: You're not mad at me?

Carly: I'm -- I'm confused. I mean, what's with the doll when you can sing and play like that?

Sam: You liked it, huh?

Carly: Liked it? I think I should book you for the next five weeks before somebody else snaps you up.

Sam: I wouldn't leave you for anyone else.

Carly: Well, that's no way to negotiate.

Sam: It's the truth.

Carly: What are you doing?

Sam: Come here, come here. Come here. Hey, everyone, could I have your attention, please? I want you to give a big hand for the person who pulled off this evening. Her name is Carly Tenney. Give it up. Here we go. [Cheers and applause] That's right.

Katie: No coconut, right?

Brad: Duh. No anchovies, either. What do you think I am?

Katie: I don't know. I have no idea what you are.

Brad: I am what you call an enigmatic.

Katie: Ooh, you've been saving that one up for a long time.

Brad: For months. When I was 11, I broke my leg.

Katie: A ballet injury, no doubt.

Brad: And the cast had this little rubber heel thing and I got pretty good at getting around on it. And I thought, no problem, I'll play a little basketball. Well, I broke it again.

Katie: That is so you. The fact that you had never seen anyone play basketball with a cast before didn't clue you in that wasn't a good idea.

Brad: It was a terrible idea. And it took twice as long for it to heal. If you get back in the game too fast, you're not going to heal.

Katie: I'm not back in the game. I'm just taking it day by day.

Brad: Jack wants to forget the past. And he wants you to, also.

Katie: I would love to.

Brad: But not too fast. Maybe you start putting up a front for Jack. I mean, your heart -- it's not -- it might not set right. Katie, I don't know what we're doing exactly. But I don't want to hurt you. And we both know, I'm not too smart on emotional stuff.

Katie: I think you're better than you think you are.

Brad: Coconut. I mean, after how -- you know me, and you think I would put coconut on ice cream. You make me crazy.

Katie: You, too.

Carly: Thank you! Thanks for coming. Thanks. Been an awful long time since anything I've done got an applause.

Jack: I think Parker may be right.

Carly: About what?

Jack: I think Sam’s got a little thing for you.

Carly: Sam has a thing for Kit. He's just helping me.

Jack: Be careful, okay?

Carly: I didn't know you still cared.

Jack: Just remember, you're a lousy judge of character.

Carly: Right. You should find Katie. She should interview Sam.

Jack: She left.

Carly: I'm sorry.

Jack: Me, too. About Katie and about you.

Katie: You pushed all my buttons to get me to leave Metro, didn't you?

Brad: I guess I did.

Katie: Thank you.

Brad: So, we'll count down, say Happy New Year. I'll drive you home, go sleep, start taking care of yourself.

Katie: Oh, wait, we'll count down, and say Happy New Year, and then -- what about the kiss? We have to kiss at midnight.

Brad: I thought you didn't like that.

Katie: It's just a tradition, that's all.

Brad: Okay. Okay, I mean, it doesn't mean anything. It's a tradition.

Katie: What else could it be?

Jack: I know I've been pretty hard on you lately. And I'm sorry.

Carly: And for no good reason, either. Imagine that, being mean to a sweet, simple girl like me.

Jack: Sam was right. All this is because of you. It was great. Carly -- it's really -- it's great.

Carly: Jack --

Sam: Okay. Here we go --

All: 10, 9, 8, 7 --

Carly: This always makes me think of the Poseidon Adventure --

All: 4, 3, 2, 1 -- Happy New Year!

[Cheers]

Brad: Oh, damn it. Oh, damn it.

Katie: What's wrong?

Brad: Oh, damn it -- me, I'm what's wrong. I mean, I talked to you about my broken leg, and the next thing I do is make you play basketball with me.

Katie: That was basketball?

Brad: Okay, listen, okay -- I got you to listen to me about watching yourself with Jack. But you need to watch yourself with me, too.

Katie: Really?

Brad: You know -- New Year's -- I'll be telling the truth. I don't think I can be trusted with you. Get it?

Katie: Got it.

Brad: Good. From now on, we sleep together. That's it. All right, no more damn ice cream, at all.

Emily: Hi, it's Emily Stewart, I can't take your call right now. But leave a message and I'll get back to you.

Chris: Hey, hey, it's me. I'm really sorry, but I'm not going to be able to leave my dad tonight. Sorry to ruin your New Year's.

Dusty: I'm sorry. I had no right. I just miss you.

Next week on "As the World Turns."

Doctor: Barbara?

Barbara: Tell me what's wrong with me.

Paul: Could you tell me please how proudest papa on the planet is turned into a raving lunatic?

Dusty: I was with Emily. We slept together.

Holden: Lily, come on. Wake up!
