Meg: Hey there.

Craig: Hey yourself.

Meg: You let me sleep in late, Mr. Montgomery. You know, this is the part where you make a comment like you let me sleep in late too, Mrs. Montgomery.

Craig: I thought you preferred us on a first name basis.

Meg: I've kind of gotten used to you adding Montgomery to my name. What? Where are you going?

Craig: Oh, it's late, like you said.

Meg: Have you forgotten that you're in bed with the CEO of Montgomery Enterprises? You can go in as late as you like. Besides, you probably need the rest after yesterday. How's your hand doing?

Craig: I'll live.

Meg: How's your head?

Craig: You know what? Okay. You know what, if I promise not to ever mix alcohol and medications again, will you stop asking me how I am?

Meg: Maybe. Oh, my God.

Craig: What's the matter? You all right? Is it the baby? What's the matter?

Meg: He moved. Here, here, feel. What's wrong?

[Cell phone rings]

Bonnie: Why does this phone always ring at the worst -- basketball's world famous Bonnie McKechnie speaking?

Holden: How are you? Did I catch you at a bad time?

Bonnie: You bet you did. If you would have called about 10 minutes ago, you could've saved me some major damage on my credit cards.

Holden: I'll try to schedule my calls better in the future.

Bonnie: Oh. So what is the reason for this unscheduled call? You ready for that rematch you promised me?

Holden: Actually, I was thinking that maybe we could take in a movie. If you're free.

Bonnie: Holden, are you to ask me on a -- oh, what's that word? Date?

Holden: Yeah, I guess that's what they're calling it these days.

Bonnie: All right. Last I heard, a date between two adults usually involved some sort of food or beverage. And before you ask, popcorn and soda do not count.

Holden: Well, I suppose that I could buy the candy, if you insist.

Bonnie: Big spender. Well, since you are clearly out of practice here, I gonna take pity on you and say yes.

Dusty: Margo.

Margo: Oh, Dusty Donovan, what the hell are you doing here of your own free will?

Dusty: I need your help.

Margo: Why? What's happened?

Dusty: I got to get in to see Bob.

Margo: Well, I'm a cop, not a nurse. I have no control over the visiting hours at Memorial.

Dusty: The hours aren't the problem. It's the access. Your brother-in-law locked me out.

Emily: Uh, we're here.

Chris: The next time I threaten to take an overnight shift, remind me of last night and this morning.

Emily: I can't make any promises. But I will do my best.

Chris: Oh, I know what you can do. That's why I want some more.

[Cell phone rings]

Emily: You better get your phone.

Chris: Oh, I swear if I wasn't the acting chief of staff, I'd break this thing into a million pieces. Dr. Hughes. What time did they get out of surgery? Uh-huh.

Emily: Hi, Lily. It's a pleasant surprise.

Lily: Really? Wasn't that little loving couple routine -- wasn't that for my benefit?

Emily: No. Chris and I don't have to make a show of our relationship.

Lily: Relationship? Is that what you're having with Chris? A relationship?

Emily: Uh, yeah.

Lily: Really? I thought Dusty and I were having a relationship. Until you slept with him.

Dusty: I managed to see Bob once, until Chris had security throw me out.

Margo: Oh, so you're asking me to pull rank on hospital security?

Dusty: Well, since you're family, can you talk to him? I just want a chance to see Bob. After that, Chris can throw me out again.

Tom: From what I understand, Chris had every right to throw you out of my father's room. Apparently after your visit, my dad wound up stressed and sedated.

Dusty: I'm not the reason Chris drugged your father.

Tom: Are you trying say that my father's condition is somehow Chris's fault?

Dusty: That's exactly what I'm saying.

Emily: Stop making it sound like I'm some kind of a home wrecker because I'm not.

Lily: I didn't do that.

Emily: No, I'm not. You and Dusty were not having a relationship. You were having an affair.

Lily: Really? What would you call what you did with Dusty?

Emily: A mistake.

Lily: A mistake?

Emily: Lily, it never should've happened.

Lily: Oh, really. Why did it happen? Just to prove that you could do it? Get him back?

Emily: I'm not going to have this conversation with you.

Lily: You know, you're not a home-wrecker, you're just a whore.

Meg: Why'd you pull away?

Craig: Bad hand, remember?

Meg: Sorry. Here, let's use the other one. You know, once your son starts -- what now?

Craig: Look, I'm just -- I'm just not up to this, okay? Maybe I'm just a little tired still from yesterday.

Meg: When you had your bout of food poisoning a few weeks back, you practically tackled me so you could feel the baby kick, but now you're too tired?

Craig: All right. Maybe later.

Meg: Maybe?

Craig: You know, I would appreciate it if you didn't dissect every single word, since I've already told you I'm just not feeling very well.

Meg: Okay. What gives, Craig? It's not that you're just not jumping to touch the baby and feel it kick, but you snatched your hand away like you can't bear to touch the baby or me. Well, you can't be angry at the baby. He hasn't done anything. So, that leaves me. What's going on with you, Craig?

Craig: Meg, I know --

Meg: What is it?

Craig: I know I haven't been acting like the best dad this morning. Okay, I just -- chalk it up to still feeling sick about -- recent events.

Meg: Where are you going?

Craig: I need to take a shower.

Emily: What did you just call me?

Lily: You heard me. A whore. You know, that's somebody who sleeps with anybody that she can get her hands on.

Emily: Okay, since we're throwing around accusations, Lily, how about adultery? Or did you happen to get a divorce from Holden while nobody was looking?

Lily: Holden knew about Dusty and me. Does Chris know that you brought the New Year in with a big bang?

Emily: Leave Chris out of it.

Lily: Why should I do that? Why should I let you ruin his life the same way you ruined mine?

Tom: Now that is one hell of an accusation you just leveled at my brother. So, if you don't want to be slapped with a slander suit, you better have something to back that up.

Dusty: Tom, your father's stroke doesn't sit right with me.

Tom: Oh. And you base this on what? Your vast medical knowledge?

Dusty: Chris knows more than what he's letting on. That's why I got to talk to Bob.

Margo: Well that's not going to happen, Dusty. Bob is just now regaining consciousness. So, if the family doesn't want you in the room during recovery, you're going to respect their wishes.

Dusty: Bob woke up and started talking, and Chris had him sedated. Am I the only one who thinks that's a little off?

Tom: My brother is devastated about my father's condition. He's not only trying to give him the best care he can, but he's trying to run a hospital. So, you picked this family tragedy as grounds for, what, a personal attack?

Dusty: Why would I do that, Tom?

Tom: I don't know. 'Cause of Emily.

Emily: Look, I don't want Dusty. Chris and I are very happy.

Lily: Do very happy women have one-night stands?

Emily: It was a mistake, okay? It was a mistake. You want Dusty, he's all yours. I'm not going to get in your way.

Lily: You already have. You've always been there between me and Dusty because he wants you. He never wanted me, he always really wanted you.

Chris: Hey, my father seems to be doing fine this morning. Which is more than I can say for you. What's wrong?

Emily: No, no. I'm fine. I'm fine. We're good.

Chris: Am I interrupting something?

Emily: No, not at all. Not at all. Don't you need to get to the hospital? I think you're already running late, right?

Chris: And whose fault is that? I can wait for you, drop you off at the Intruder?

Emily: No, no. That's okay. That's okay, Babe, I'll catch up with you later, okay? Bye.

Lily: You are a pro.

Emily: Stop saying that.

Lily: You're a pro. The way you looked at him right in the eye, and you lied to him like that. Well I shouldn't be surprised. That's exactly the way you treated Dusty.

Emily: I told Dusty. I was honest about the way I felt. But it's not my fault he wasn't listening to me.

Lily: Maybe it was the timing. Hmm? Did you tell him before or after you slept with him that you weren't interested in him? How could he not understand your message? Wasn't it perfectly clear? You were so honest with him. Flaunting your relationship with Chris in front of him for months, and months, you just wanted to be a challenge. You wanted Dusty to fight for you, all along. That's what you wanted to do!

Emily: Lily.

Lily: All along!

Emily: Lily, you are making a scene.

Dusty: Did Chris tell you that? That I have it in for him because of Emily?

Tom: Well, what other reason do you have for this personal vendetta?

Dusty: Ask Chris.

Margo: Well, what -- what exactly are we supposed to ask Chris?

Dusty: Ask him about the fight he had with Bob just before Bob collapsed.

Margo: What is he talking about?

Tom: I don't have a clue. I don't think he does either.

Dusty: I overheard the two of them going at it.

Tom: Okay, okay. So they were working under severe strain. It's not a secret, it's not a cause for concern.

Dusty: You got to understand that your brother isn't as cute as he used to be.

Tom: Now, you know nothing about my brother.

Margo: All I hear are accusations and insinuations. Nothing solid.

Dusty: I understand that you guys are trying to do what's right for your family, but Chris isn't. He's out for himself.

Margo: Donovan, you are skating on some pretty thin ice here.

Dusty: The first thing he decided to do when he became chief of staff was green light the Evan Walsh/Craig Montgomery research project, which everyone knows Bob was against. You telling me all of this is a coincidence?

Bartender: What can I get you?

Lily: Vodka. Very little soda.

Jay: That's a pretty classy drink for this place.

Lily: Oh, please. If you're going to say, what's a classy lady like you doing in a joint like this --

Jay: Nope, I just thought I'd just sit over here and build a fire to ward off the chill.

Lily: Oh, sorry, I didn't mean to say that.

Jay: That's okay. It looks like you're having one of those days.

Lily: One of those lives.

Jay: I know what you're going through.

Lily: I doubt it.

Jay: Feeling like that one person you thought had your back just stabbed you in it? I've been there.

Lily: So what do you do? Come here and drink your troubles away?

Jay: That's one of my tricks. I've got a few others up my sleeve. But I'm not quite sure it's something a classy lady like you would go for.

Lily: You'll never know unless you ask.

Meg: Jan. Hey.

Nurse Jan: Oh, Meg. How are you and the baby?

Meg: Just fine, thanks.

Nurse Jan: Did you manage to get that husband of yours calmed down?

Meg: Actually, that's why I'm here. I know this could get you into trouble, but I need your help.

Nurse Jan: What kind of trouble are we talking about?

Meg: I need to see my husband's medical records.

Nurse Jan: Meg, that would be putting my job on the line.

Meg: I know, I know, I know it's a lot to ask. But Craig has been acting really strange lately.

Nurse Jan: Strange isn't the word for it. He was flipping out over a doll at a little lunch party.

Meg: Yeah, I know. I know and it's not usually like him to do that. And that's why I'm worried about him, and I think maybe he's keeping something from me.

Nurse Jan: What do you think it could be?

Meg: Chris Hughes treated him just recently. They both said it was for an infection, but maybe it wasn't.

Nurse Jan: You think it's something more serious?

Meg: Craig has been so excited about the baby. He's been micromanaging my vitamins, touching my belly all the time --

Nurse Jan: That's so sweet.

Meg: Yeah, it's kind of making me crazy. But now Craig's whole attitude about the baby has changed. It's like he's scared. He's afraid that he won't be around to watch our son grow up.

Nurse Jan: This is just standard issue pregnancy paranoia, Meg.

Meg: Probably. But I have all these crazy thoughts going through my head. And I just need some answers.

Nurse Jan: You're really worried, aren't you?

Meg: He's my husband and the father of my baby. I need to know what's going on, and if there's anything I can do to help him. I know I'm asking for a lot.

Nurse Jan: Yeah, you are. I'll see what I can do.

Lily: You're right, it's really -- this is not my thing. I'm not being judgmental or anything, but I kind of had a small problem with these not too long ago. So, I said, no more. Never again.

Jay: Of course, I understand. Major props to you.

Lily: Lily. My name is Lily.

Jay: Jay. But, just so you understand, these little babies aren't addictive.

Lily: Right.

Jay: Cross my heart. Do I look like I want to end up like that?

Lily: Who does?

Jay: These are just for a little recreational relaxation. For when things get a little too heavy for me to handle without a little chemical help. Like when my friends stop acting like my friends, when my family gets on my case, when my honey keeps sending these mixed signals and getting mad when I misread them -- it helps put things back on an even keel.

Lily: And which of those things got you here tonight?

Jay: All of the above. You?

Lily: Yeah, the same. So, those help?

Jay: Check it out. Steady as a rock.

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Jay: You sure you don't to try one? Come on.

Lily: No, thanks. No.

Jay: Come on. What have you got to lose?

Lily: Nothing. All right, just one. One.

Tom: So Chris is sleeping with Emily, big deal. So you're going to make him pay for that by hurting our father.

Dusty: That's complete nonsense.

Tom: Then where's your proof? Back up one of your accusations that Chris has done something to cause my father harm.

Margo: Come one, Honey.

Tom: No! He's not going to talk about my family like this.

Dusty: I apologize. I shouldn't have come to you with this.

Margo: No, you shouldn't have.

Tom: I'll tell you this, I am 100% behind my brother on this one. So you stay the hell away from my father. I will slap you with a harassment suit that will make you wish you were the one in intensive care.

Dusty: What happens when I get proof?

Tom: I'm not holding my breath, Dusty. Back off! Stay the hell away from my family! Don't be the one that winds up sorry.

Jay: Oh, good choice.

Lily: Ahh, thank you. Thank you. I feel good. I feel really good.

Jay: If you feel half as good as you look, you must be on the moon right now.

Lily: Hmmmm. Thank you very much. This song just makes me feel free. I haven't felt that way in a really long time.

Jay: You know what's even better than being free?

Lily: What's that?

Jay: Not being alone.

[Cell phone rings]

Holden: Hey, Faith. How was dance class, Honey?

Faith: Fine. Have you seen Mom?

Holden: Isn't she with you? It's her day to pick you up.

Faith: That's what I thought. But I've been here at Al's for 20 minutes.

Holden: Well, maybe she's running late. Did you try her cell?

Faith: It went straight to voicemail.

Holden: All right, I'm on my way. Stay put.

Lily: I think the music stopped.

Jay: Did it?

Lily: I must've run out of quarters.

Jay: Well, maybe that's a sign it's time for us to blow this joint and find a place where quarters and music won't be needed.

Lily: I thought you were just trying to cheer me up.

Jay: I thought it'd be nice if we could cheer each other up. You interested?

Lily: I'm very interested.

Faith: Hey Dad. Did Mom call you?

Holden: Afraid not.

Faith: I bet she just forgot.

Holden: You know what? I bet something came up and she just couldn't reach us.

Faith: Can we go home?

Holden: Sure.

Bonnie: If this is your taste in fine dining, I better get to pick the movie.

Dusty: I'm not in the mood.

Emily: Do you have a death wish?

Dusty: I'm really not in the mood.

Emily: Yeah, you know what, neither am I, thanks to your girlfriend.

Dusty: My what?

Emily: Lily. Call her off, Dusty. Or I won't be responsible for what happens next.

Nurse Jan: You so owe me, Meg. I took a peek, and it's just an infection. You're just paranoid. He'll take the medication, and he'll be fine in a few days. Are you satisfied?

Meg: Okay, it says here there was xyphorex in his system. What's that?

Nurse Jan: It's a new drug, it came out in the market after you retired from nursing.

Meg: Thanks for the tact. So what is it used for?

Nurse Jan: I've only seen it prescribed a couple a few times.

Meg: Is it experimental?

Nurse Jan: No, but there are some side effects. Doctors are discouraged from prescribing it to women of child bearing age because it can cause miscarriages.

Meg: Okay, well there's no record here that it had been prescribed. So if it wasn't ingested, how'd the xyphorex end up in his system?

Nurse Jan: Meg, an infection is an infection. Okay? Are you done?

Meg: No, no, no, no. Wait, wait, wait. Look, apparently the xyphorex was the cause of the infection. So how could something like that happen? The xyphorex must have come in contact with this wound.

[Meg remembering]

Craig: And to our baby.

[Meg goes to take a drink and Craig knocks the drink out of her hand and the glass breaks cutting Craig]

Nurse Jan: Well, it's just a good thing it was him and not you.

Meg: What?

Nurse Jan: If you had come in contact with the medication you might have lost your baby.

Dusty: Lily's my friend, not my girlfriend.

Emily: Okay, whatever, Dusty. I'm not going to argue semantics with you. She cornered me at the Lakeview and made a scene.

Dusty: No she didn't. She wouldn't do that.

Emily: Yes, she did. She did, and it's all because of you. Why the hell did you tell her about what happened New Year’s Eve?

Dusty: Why do you have a problem with the truth, Emily?

Emily: I told you I didn't want to be with you --

Dusty: Start by being honest with yourself.

Jay: You okay?

Lily: Yeah, I'm okay. I'm okay, I'm okay. I'm just a little whoo. Feel a little sick, my stomach. And my head, so maybe, you know, this isn't a good time. You know, maybe we should --

Jay: Okay, I'll call you a cab.

Lily: Okay.

Holden: I'm sorry. I got so distracted I forgot to call.

Bonnie: Well, is everything okay?

Holden: I hope so. Lily was supposed to pick up Faith after dance class, she didn't do it. So I had to come get her. Is there any way we could do this some other time? I have to take Faith home.

Bonnie: Yeah, and track down Lily to and see if she's all right. And yeah, I understand. We'll just do this another time.

Holden: Sure you're okay with it?

Bonnie: Yeah, come on. I'm a lawyer, I'm used to adjournments, right?

Holden: Thanks. I owe you.

Bonnie: You bet. And I intend to collect.

Holden: You ready, Sweetie?

Faith: Sure.

Emily: I'd get off that high moral ground of yours, if I were you. After the things you've done.

Dusty: You've done worse. Trust me.

Emily: Did you tell Lily? Did you tell Lily what I used to do?

Dusty: No. Of course not. Should I have?

Emily: No! But you never should have told her that we slept together. You had no right being so damn honest with her at my expense.

Dusty: I thought I was doing the right thing.

Emily: Why? Why now? Why? Just to hurt me?

Dusty: I love you.

Emily: Well, I don't love you.

Dusty: Was I alone in the car on New Year’s Eve? Was all that my imagination?

Emily: Would you just face it? Okay, we are not destined to be together. Okay? It's just the way it is. So what now? Because of that, you're going to make me and Chris pay for it for the rest of our lives?

Dusty: Don't turn me into the bad guy. Your boyfriend's pulling all the strings here.

Emily: No. No, that's not true. There are no strings. There are no manipulations. He's just a decent guy who is treating me, finally, the way I deserve to be treated.

Dusty: That decent guy of yours is all an act. He's a sham! And I'm surprised you'd fall for a guy like that.

Holden: You're sure you saw Mrs. Snyder go in there?

Bellhop: Just a little while ago.

Holden: Was she alone?

Bellhop: She was.

Holden: Unlock it. Look, Mrs. Snyder is part-owner of this hotel. She could be in trouble. Open the door.

Bellhop: Sir --

Holden: Please. Lily. Lily, wake up. Lily, wake up! Lily, come on, wake up!

Craig: Where have you been? I got out of the shower, you were gone.

Meg: I had a doctor's appointment. And since you weren't feeling well, I thought I'd go by myself.

Craig: I think that was good thinking.

Meg: I have another appointment next week, so if you want, you could come with me then.

Craig: Next week I am really busy.

Meg: Aren't you gonna even ask what the doctor said about the baby?

Craig: I assume that your pregnancy is progressing as expected.

Meg: I got another sonogram today. You know, I could tell our son's gonna be the spitting image of you.

Craig: Don't be ridiculous.

Meg: Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating. But when I was looking at it, I suddenly got a thought of the perfect name. Craig Montgomery Junior.

Craig: Absolutely not.

Meg: Why not? Why shouldn't our son be named after his father?

Craig: I just that -- there must be a million names for boys. You know what, I will buy you one of those books, you can pick any name you like.

Meg: But I want my son to have a name that connects him to his family.

Craig: Then use your father's name. But Craig Montgomery Junior is not on the table.

Meg: I thought you'd be happy for your son to bear your name.

Craig: You have no idea how much. Not this baby.

Meg: Why not?

Craig: You know what? I really, I've got to go. I'm so behind. I lost a lot of time with the infection and then my bad reaction to the medication.

Meg: Okay, you know what? You never did explain why you felt the need to drink on antibiotics.

Craig: Okay. I guess I really didn't understand the total effect, but I do learn from my mistakes. I will be at the office if you need me.

Meg: Okay, you know what, just wait -- I'll just change and I'll --

Craig: Okay, I really -- I really have to get out of here. Just take your time, relax and I'll see you there. Okay?

Meg: Okay.

Craig: Okay.

Meg: He really doesn't want this baby. Why? That's impossible!

Lily: Hey. Holden. What are you doing here?

Holden: Lily, I had to have somebody on staff let me in. I was knocking on the door, I was calling your name, but you didn't answer. Then when I came in, and I saw you lying here, so unresponsive, it reminded me of when you were in that coma. Don't ever do that to me again.

Lily: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to do that.

Holden: Are you okay?

Lily: Yeah, I'm fine.

Holden: Your cell phone was off.

Lily: Oh, well, I just couldn't handle anymore bad news today.

Holden: Did you forget that it was your day to pick up Faith?

Lily: Oh, no.

Holden: It's all right. It's all right. I did it. She's fine.

Lily: Is she okay?

Holden: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Lily: She's all right?

Holden: She was just a little confused when you didn't show up.

Lily: Oh, I feel terrible.

Holden: You look terrible.

Lily: I didn't feel well, so I took an antihistamine -- I just took a rest, I had a bad reaction I guess.

Holden: Yeah, okay. Well, you do look a little pale.

Lily: I feel terrible. I didn't mean to forget about Faith. I've just been so stressed, and it was just one pill.

Holden: You know what? Things have been rough lately. You okay?

Lily: I'm just a little groggy.

Holden: You know what, if you're sick, then maybe you should come down to the farm. Why don't you let me take care of you?

Emily: The only one playing mind games here is you, Dusty.

Dusty: I've always been honest with you. And you know how much I want you.

Emily: Stop it. Just stop it. Just leave me and Chris alone. And tell Lily to be quiet about what happened New Year’s Eve.

Dusty: I don't control Lily.

Emily: Well, you better! Because if she ends up ruining what I have with Chris, it'll be your fault. And I will never forgive you.

Lily: You have no idea how happy it makes me to hear you say that.

Holden: I only want what's best for you. That's all I've ever wanted.

Lily: I know that. It'll be good to be out at the farm. I know I've made things so difficult on you. It'll be good to be at the farm. You know, spend some time with the kids, spend some time as a family.

Holden: You know, I want to look out for you, but just until you're okay to do it yourself.

Lily: Of course.

Holden: The way you were talking --

Lily: I'm just not all right in the head right now. I'm just a little tired. I shouldn't -- you know, I shouldn't go out to the farm, it wouldn't be a good idea for the kids to see you taking care of me. As you said, we don't want to give them false hope. I should stay here at a hotel, where I can get 24 hour service, I can get hot tea and soup. I'm not going to get that kind of service out at the farm.

Holden: Are you sure you're okay?

Lily: Yeah, I'm fine. Fine.

Chris: Hey, I was just about to call you. I just checked on my –

Nurse Jan: Did you ask him how the xyphorex got into his system?

Meg: I'm working on it. But what I really do need right now is to reach Eli.

Nurse Jan: He quit not too long ago.

Meg: He quit? But he loved his work at Memorial.

Nurse Jan: That's what we all thought. But then one day out of the blue, he just announced that he was going to spend some time in Europe, enjoy life. None of us thought Eli knew what enjoying life even meant.

Meg: How could he afford to quit? Let alone travel?

Nurse Jan: Well, word is, he came into some money. Maybe it was a rich relative?

Meg: Or a payoff.

Nurse Jan: What did you say?

Meg: Nothing important. Thank you for your help, Jan.

Nurse Jan: From now on, let's keep the favors to the non-job threatening kind, okay?

Meg: Okay. Bye.

Voicemail message: Your party is unavailable. Please leave a message at the tone.

[Beep]

Meg: Hey, Eli, it's Meg Mont -- Snyder. I know you're probably miles away from Memorial right now, but if by some miracle you get this message, can you call me as soon as possible? I want to talk about the DNA tests. Is it possible somebody might have switched them? I just need to know --

Voicemail message: The subscriber's mail box is full. Please try again at another time.

[Phone rings]

Holden: Hello? You almost finished?

Faith: Just started math.

Lily: Holden, could you put Faith on the phone please?

Holden: Yeah, sure thing. It's your mom. Faith.

Faith: I'm busy.

Holden: You are never too busy to talk to your mom. Come on.

Faith: Hey, Mom.

Lily: Hi, Honey. I know you're upset that I didn't pick you up.

Faith: It's all right. Dad came and got me.

Lily: I know. You can always count on your father to do the right thing. Even when your mother messes up. Look, I wasn't feeling well, and I decided just to put my feet up and I must have drifted off and I went to sleep till your father came by and woke me up.

Faith: It's all right. I have math homework.

Lily: Well I'll let you get back to math. But hey, if I'm feeling better tomorrow, maybe the two of us could go out and do something?

Faith: Okay.

Holden: What'd she say?

Faith: That she took a nap and forgot all about me. Happy now?

Margo: You almost decked Donovan in there.

Tom: Well, the things he was saying, don't make any sense.

Margo: All right. I was hoping I wouldn't have to do this, but I'm going to have to, especially with a lawyer.

Tom: Do what?

Margo: Be the devil's advocate.

Tom: Oh, don't. Please, don't.

Margo: All right. I have gotten to know Donovan reasonably well through the years, of all the interrogations and where is he may shade and evade every once and a while, it's usually only to protect himself or someone he loves. And that just doesn't apply here. And grant it, he may still have the hots for Emily, but that doesn't account for his attacking Chris like that. So it makes me wonder --

Tom: You know, just stop wondering. I mean, Chris would never do anything to hurt our father. How can you even say something like that?

Margo: Because I'm a cop, and doubt is a necessary evil that comes with the job.

Tom: You have no reasonable basis for doubt here. Okay, Chris is ambitious. My dad and he have certainly had their differences. But the bottom line is, he idolizes my father. It's the reason he became a doctor in the first place.

Margo: I know, I know, I know. But, Honey, what if Chris's ambitions have just gotten away with him? After all, he didn't stop Emily from raking Bob over the coals in the Intruder, did he?

Tom: Well, there's a big difference between some public scrutiny for my father and winding up in a hospital bed. Devil's advocate, you got no case here. Dusty's accusations are biased, they're baseless, and there the rantings of a jealous man.

Chris: What was that for? Not that I'm complaining.

Emily: Just following instructions, Doctor.

Chris: And which instructions were those?

Emily: To remind you not to take the night shift tonight.

Chris: Wow. Well that was the nicest reminder I've ever gotten. You and Lily seemed pretty intense before. Was that about Dusty?

Emily: Yeah. She and Dusty broke up, and she's pretty upset.

Chris: Dusty messes up every life he touches, doesn't he? Maybe we should take her out to dinner, you know, show her that we're here for her.

Emily: No. No, you know, I don't think that's such a great idea. She's being completely irrational, throwing blame everywhere. I really think it's best if we both just stay far away from Lily and that entire mess.

Dusty: Bob? Bob?

Kim: Oh, my God.

Dusty: Bob, can you hear me?

Kim: Honey. Honey.

Dusty: Bob? Hey, it's Dusty Donovan. I need something analyzed.

Meg: What else could it be? Paul, call me as soon as you get this. I've got news. It's about the baby.

Next week on "As the World Turns."

Katie: I want to be in a relationship.

Brad: Well it's funny that you should say that, because I was thinking --

Katie: But it can't be with you, Brad.

Chris: Your friend Dusty, he fights dirty.

Alison: He's fighting for my sister. He's in love with her.

Meg: That means that you're the father.

Craig: I swear on my life, I will never let Paul Ryan have you.
