Stage manager: Almost ready to roll. Let's clear the set, everybody.

Brad: You're amazing.

Katie: The magic of television.

Brad: No, I'm serious. You are. You came in all chipper today, I know you had a rough time. I mean, with my bullheaded brother breaking in your door.

Katie: Jack is not bullheaded -- all right, let's just not go there, okay? Your brother and I had an amicable parting of ways.

Brad: You call that amicable? I mean, you're pretty wrecked.

Katie: Well, I'm totally over it now. Jack and I are officially history -- which should be good news for you. But since you don't want to sleep with me anymore I guess that's that.

Brad: Actually, I've been thinking about that. That maybe that shouldn't be that.

Katie: Brad, have you met Dena Donatello? Hi, good to see you. She was just named lingerie legend at the Chicago loop sleepwear awards.

Brad: Big fan of your work. It comes off beautifully. Can you excuse us for -- just for a second?

Stage manager: Ten seconds.

Katie: Brad, Brad, your mark. There we go. Okay.

Stage manager: In five, four --

Katie: Hi, we're here with Dena Donatello, lingerie legend, and she's brought with her some of her amazing pieces -- they are hot.

Brad: Any of you ladies who want to spice things up in the bedroom, check these out.

Katie: And you men should take a little peek, too.

Brad: Yeah, if you model them.

Katie: Seriously, guys. This -- great, perfect gift idea for Valentineís Day.

Brad: You get one of these numbers for the little lady and you're both gonna get lucky.

Katie: Dena, tell us about this little number.

Dena: It's a cotton-poly mix for that sleek form-fitted look. Feels like silk sheets.

Katie: This one you've got to feel to believe. Will this drive your man out of his mind, or what? This one's like wearing nothing at all! Brad, what do you think?

Brad: I can't wait to get you back in the sack.

Gwen: She didn't cry once the whole time.

Will: Yeah, she had Dr. Rothman wrapped around her little finger.

Chris: Will, Gwen. I was hoping I'd run into you guys.

Gwen: Hi.

Chris: Is this your little girl?

Will: Yup.

Gwen: This is Hallie Jennifer.

Will: If you want to make a donation to her college fund you're more than welcome.

Chris: Oh, check's in the mail.

Will: Oh good.

Chris: You guys, I've seen my share of babies, but she is really beautiful.

Will: Yeah, I know. She's going to be a heartbreaker.

Gwen: Yeah, Will says she can't date 'til she's what, 30?

Will: 40.

Gwen: Oh.

Chris: Well, Hallie's a very pretty name. You know what, I just realized something, was this an open adoption?

Gwen: Yeah, it was. Why?

Chris: Well, I think I met the birth mother.

Sofie: I'm okay, really. It doesn't hurt when I breathe anymore.

Aaron: That C-section was serious.

Sofie: Yeah, well I think it made Lisa Grimaldi take pity on me.

Aaron: Hey, a room at the Lakeview and your old job back. Not too bad.

Sofie: Yeah, thanks to Gwen and Will.

Aaron: Well, I'm pretty excited to have you back at work. 'Cause it hasn't been that much fun without you.

Sofie: Less broken glass to clean up.

Aaron: No, seriously. I mean, I think it's a good thing that you're getting back into a routine. Come on, staying at the Lakeview beats the hell out of the Wagon Wheel.

Sofie: Yeah. I don't know how long I can stay.

Aaron: Lisa's cool with you staying as long as you want.

Sofie: No. I -- I meant in Oakdale.

Aaron: You thinking about leaving? What about the baby? I mean, can you handle not seeing her again?

Chris: Yeah, she was here the other day as an outpatient. I could tell she had a C-section and she told me her baby Hallie was born just before Christmas.

Will: Yeah, that must be Sofie.

Chris: She didn't introduce herself.

Will: Did she seem okay with giving up the baby?

Chris: She didn't mention it. Now I can see why. I mean, she's got to be missing this beautiful little girl.

Carly: Can I get you a beer?

Jack: No, thank you.

Carly: I thought maybe you'd want to celebrate. Our opening night was a huge success, a big moneymaker for the O.P.D.

Jack: Yeah, commissioner wants to give you a citation. No, it's a good thing.

Carly: Oh. You don't look very happy, Jack. What's going on?

Jack: Well, we have a problem. It's Parker.

Sam: Wait, wait, wait. Don't run off. I'm just leaving.

Parker: Where's your dummy?

Sam: He's at home. You know, we're not attached at the hip. Can I buy you a milkshake or something?

Parker: No. I don't like you.

Carly: What did Parker do now?

Jack: Second semester grades came out. He's failing two subjects.

Carly: Oh, no.

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Carly: Oh, he used to be such a good student.

Jack: I talked to his guidance counselor. She said that he's having trouble concentrating in class.

Carly: All right. Well, we'll make sure that he gets help. We'll hire a tutor, if that's what he needs. We'll make sure that he knows that it's important that he buckle down.

Jack: Yeah, definitely. But it may take more than that. It's not just his grades, Carly.

Carly: I know. I know that Parker's been acting out a lot lately. And I know it's because of me.

Katie: Thanks to Dena for her sexy sleepwear. A perfect way to spice it up for Valentineís Day.

Brad: Tune in tomorrow where you'll meet the author of a new book on psychic healing and stress reduction. I'm Brad Snyder --

Katie: And I'm Katie Peretti. Thanks for watching "Oakdale Now."

Stage manager: And we're out.

Katie: Tony, please tell me you can edit out Brad's tacky comment.

Stage manager: No worries, we'll clean it up in post.

Katie: Thank you.

Brad: I still think you'd look amazing in that leopard print number.

Dena: I'll leave you some samples.

Katie: Oh, thank you so much. You were great. And good luck with everything.

Brad: Thank you very much. I was all wrong yesterday. I mean, we can go back to making babies anytime.

Katie: Actually, Brad, I was thinking about that, too. And I don't want to wake up weeks from now pregnant and alone, so thanks, but no thanks. We won't be having sex again.

Brad: Wait a minute. We need to talk about this. What changed here?

Katie: Brad, I realized I was trying to have a baby with you for all the wrong reasons. I was married to your brother! It's completely inappropriate.

Brad: What is inappropriate about you and me? I think that we are very appropriate.

Katie: Think about it. Having a baby without being in a committed relationship, that would have been a complete disaster for you, for me, especially for the baby. Brad, we're great friends. That's all we should be.

Brad: Friends with benefits maybe?

Katie: No, no. Not anymore. Having sex with you over the past few weeks has been a revelation.

Brad: Really? Well, how so?

Katie: It reminded me of how important it is to be intimate with someone. I want to fall in love again. 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.

Sam: Now since I'm living with your mother, we should at least just try to get along.

Parker: You shouldn't be mooching off my mom like that. It's not right.

Sam: I don't blame you for feeling that way. And just so you know, it's not permanent. Okay, I'm gonna get my own place as soon as I get the money.

Parker: Yeah, that's an excuse. You don't want to move out.

Sam: I don't want to leave your mother in the lurch. No.

Parker: Is that what you told my mom? And she believed you?

Sam: Parker, the truth is, your mother asked me to stay. To help out at the club while Kit is away. I would never take advantage of her.

Parker: Yeah, right.

Sam: Well, it's true. I respect her too much. I mean, you can believe whatever you want to believe, but the truth is, I'm only trying to help.

Carly: Well, I'd love to be able to talk to him, but he doesn't listen to anything I say. So, I guess it's gonna have to come from you.

Jack: No, I think we need to talk to him together.

Carly: We do?

Jack: Yeah, we're his parents. We got to set him straight. Let him know that we understand what he's going through, but we expect more out of him.

Carly: Right. Yes, we should talk to him together.

Jack: Okay.

Carly: And we should do it as soon as we can. Do you know where he is right now?

Jack: Well, that's another problem. He knew the grades were coming out today, so he high-tailed it out.

Carly: Oh. You don't think he ran away again, do you?

Jack: Oh, I hope not.

Sam: Sorry to interrupt, but I think I may be able to help.

Jack: Well, we don't need your help.

Aaron: If you move away, you may never see Hallie again.

Sofie: You know, sometimes it's really painful to be around her.

Aaron: But moving -- all by yourself, I mean, that's a real big decision. I'm your friend, I'd miss you.

Sofie: I'd miss you, too.

Aaron: Think about it, hard.

Sofie: I will. I will, okay?

Aaron: Listen, I got to get going. I got to pick up my uniform at the dry cleaners before it closes.

Sofie: Okay, go ahead. I'm fine.

Aaron: And then I'll head back to the Wagon Wheel and we can move all that stuff out.

Sofie: Okay. Thank you, Aaron. For everything.

Aaron: You got it.

Chris: Excuse me. We met at the hospital the other day. Chris Hughes. I didn't catch your name.

Sofie: Sofie Duran.

Chris: I hope I'm not out of line, but when you told me about your C-section, and having a baby -- I had no idea you'd given the child up for adoption.

Sofie: Yeah, I probably should've mentioned that.

Chris: Well, I know the adoptive parents. Will Munson's a cousin of mine. I saw Hallie today, too. She's beautiful.

Sofie: I know.

Chris: Sorry about -- sorry about upsetting you the other day.

Sofie: You know, its okay. There's really no way you could've known. I mean, it's still really hard for me to say it out loud -- I gave her up.

Chris: Well, what you did was very brave. And generous. I know this is has to be a tough time for you. If you need help, we have support groups at the hospital.

Sofie: I know. The social worker told me. I didn't take the pamphlets though.

Chris: Well, if you call my office, I can give you a referral.

Sofie: Thank you.

Chris: Take care of yourself, okay?

Sofie: I will.

Katie: I made up my mind, okay? I'm gonna move on and find someone new, and if you are truly my friend you will accept that and support it.

Brad: I want you to be happy.

Katie: Thank you.

Brad: So, can I take you out for a drink and we can discuss where we go from here?

Katie: Actually, I have plans tonight. In fact, I might have a date with my new Mr. Right.

Will: Itís probably gonna take me a little while to get all the books for next semester, but I'll go as fast as I can.

Gwen: Oh, we'll be fine for a couple hours.

Will: Okay. You got everything? Got it covered?

Gwen: Moms have to juggle a million things. Go on.

Will: Okay, good. I think you're in good hands.

Gwen: I love you.

Will: All right. Bye, Sweetie. You, too.

Gwen: I'll see you at home.

Sofie: Hey. Need a hand?

Gwen: Yeah, if you could just grab that out for me, that would be great, and just set it down. Thanks. Um, hi.

Sofie: Hi.

Gwen: She had her first checkup today.

Sofie: Is she okay?

Gwen: Yeah. Yeah, she's perfect. And all the doctors and nurses, they love her.

Sofie: Well, who wouldn't?

Gwen: You want to hold her?

Sofie: Are you sure? I mean --

Gwen: Yeah, I'm positive. She's asleep, just -- you got her?

Sofie: Yeah. Shh.

Vienna: Katie, Sweetheart, you look fabulous. What's the occasion? Are you meeting Brad?

Katie: No. Actually, don't tell anyone, but I'm here for that speed-dating group, mate-date.

Vienna: Why? You don't have to go on any speed-date, whatever that is. Brad is more than willing to give you a baby and love you.

Katie: I know, but I need to date other guys. And my biological clock is ticking, so I figure with speed-dating the bad dates are over faster.

Vienna: No, Katie, don't do this.

Katie: Oh, I have to go sign in. Wish me luck.

Brad: Vienna, have you seen Katie?

Vienna: Yes! She's going on a dating spree, and you have to go stop her.

Carly: Jack, Sam hasn't done anything wrong. He's been very helpful. He saved me on New Yearís Eve.

Jack: That doesn't give him the right to interfere in our family.

Sam: I'm just trying to help.

Carly: You see? Sam is a decent guy, Jack. You got to give him a break.

Jack: Okay, fine, I overreacted. Sorry.

Sam: Apology accepted. If you're looking for Parker, I think I know where he is.

Carly: Oh, Parker, I'm so glad you're here. I thought you'd run off again.

Parker: How did you find me here? Your good buddy Sam tip you off?

Jack: This isn't about Sam. It's about you failing history and science.

Parker: You gonna to read me my rights and then throw me in jail, or what?

Jack: Don't joke about this, please.

Carly: Hey. I know that you've been going through a tough time, but if you keep falling behind in school it could affect you for the rest of your life.

Parker: Yeah, I better get it together so I can be perfect like you.

Jack: Wait a minute. Watch your mouth. Nobody's perfect here. Not your mother and certainly not me. But we are trying the hardest we can. We need you to try harder.

Parker: Okay. I'll try harder. Next quarter I won't fail any classes. Is that it?

Jack: I spoke to your principal. You can make up for the classes that you failed by getting extra help and taking the makeup tests. Now, it's not going to be easy, but you got to buckle down.

Parker: Yeah. Anything else?

Carly: Yeah. No hockey after school. And no hanging out with your friends either.

Parker: For how long?

Carly: As long as it takes for you to get your grades up.

Parker: I don't get it. You lie and we have to live with it. I fail a couple of classes and I'm grounded? Why?

Carly: 'Cause you're the kid, that's why.

Parker: That's the best you can do?

Jack: Parker.

Carly: Hey. You think that actions don't have consequences? You think my life's golden? I'm sharing my house with another woman's boyfriend who's got a doll in a bag instead of my husband and my children. You're growing up, and I'm missing it! I've messed up, I know that, but I'll be damned if I'll stand by and watch you do the same thing. You got it? Got it?

Parker: Got it.

Jack: Good. New rules start now. Go home and start cracking on those books.

Parker: Okay. Fine.

Carly: Parker, be mad. Please remember that I love you.

Parker: Whatever.

Carly: I wish I knew how to get through to him.

Jack: I think you just did.

Gwen: Go ahead. See if she'll -- even when she's sleeping, see if she'll grab your finger. Just --

Aaron: Hey, hey, hey. How's my goddaughter doing?

Sofie: Hallie's getting so big. You know, when I first held her, right after she was born, it was amazing. But now, it's like she's turning into a little person. Look at that. Did you see that? She just smiled at me!

Gwen: She's saying hello to her birth mother.

Sam: Hey, Parker. What can I do for you?

Parker: Quit spying on me. And don't rat me out to my mom and my dad.

Sam: Uh, first of all, I wasn't spying on you. Your parents were looking for you so I just told them where you were.

Parker: You just did that to get in good with my mom.

Sam: Parker, why are you so suspicious?

Parker: Because I don't trust you or your stupid dummy.

Sam: Leave Cowboy Jack out of this.

Parker: Stay away from me, and leave my mom alone.

Jack: Yeah, you were tough with Parker, but that's what he needs.

Carly: I'm glad that we talked to him together. He's lucky to have you.

Jack: And you. Hey, we got to raise three kids, Carly. We need to be a team.

Carly: I'd like to be there for them more. If you mean that -- about being a team, let's prove it.

Jack: What did you have in mind?

Carly: Let them stay with me more. Can you do that for me, Jack? Can you do that for our family?

Brad: This will never work.

Vienna: Just let me work my magic, okay? Come on. You stay right here, okay?

Brad: Well --

Vienna: Just -- oh, excuse me, are you here for mate-date?

Stan: Uh, yes, I am. You too? This is my lucky night!

Vienna: Well, I was going to join the group, but not anymore.

Stan: Oh, why not?

Vienna: Do you see that man over there? Do you know who he is?

Stan: Uh, he looks familiar, but I can't place him.

Vienna: He's from "Oakdale Now." The TV show. You know, his producer is in the ladies room. And they're doing a hidden-camera expose. And I don't want my personal life to be trashed all over tabloid TV.

Stan: Yeah, you're right. Uh, thanks for the head-up. I'm out of here.

Vienna: Excuse me. Your name tag.

Stan: You want to get a drink?

Vienna: Well, unfortunately, I'm working later. But if you stop by Al's diner, I'll give you free coffee and a pepperkakor.

Stan: I'll see you there. Whatever that is.

Vienna: Come on. Now, ta-ta. I did my job, and now it's all up to you. Go get a date --

Brad: Ow.

Vienna: With the woman of your dreams.

Audrey: Each dater gets five minutes with each potential date. When I ring this bell, everyone switches partners and meets someone new. When we're all finished, if you've met anyone that you would like to date, just write their name down on your personalized index card. Mate-date will expedite meetings, as long as your card matches someone else's. Everyone ready? Ladies, take a seat.

Katie: Brad, what are you doing here?

Brad: I'm looking for a hot date. Just like you.

Katie: You followed me here, didn't you?

Brad: That would be a yes. Is this like 20 questions?

Katie: So what? You thought you could just sneak in here and get a date with me?

Brad: Why not? I mean, this is totally legit, I swear.

Katie: Stan?

Brad: Would you believe that Stan is my middle name?

Katie: No. I'm not going to let you ruin this for me.

[Bell rings]

Audrey: Time's up. Ladies, stay seated. Gentlemen, move to the next table.

Katie: If you really are into this, you should go date someone else.

Joe: Hi, I'm Joe Rossiter.

Katie: Hi, Katie Peretti.

Joe: Nice to meet you.

Katie: Nice to meet you, too. Actually you look kind of familiar, have we met?

Joe: No, but -- I've been looking forward to this.

Ginny: Love your hair. I'm a stylist. And I know healthy follicles when I see them! Hi, I'm Ginny.

Brad: Nice to meet you.

Ginny: You remind me of that guy on TV. Brett or Branford. He's cute but he is a real blockhead. I like a man with more brain power, know what I mean?

Brad: Whoa -- did the bell ring already?

Ginny: Nope. Four minutes and 42 seconds left, big guy. Let's make the most of it.

Joe: I've seen your show.

Katie: Oh, please don't hold that against me.

Joe: No, I like it. You're the best part.

Katie: Thank you. You still look so familiar. What do you do?

Joe: Firefighter. Lakeside Station.

Katie: Oh, that's it. You're Mr. February!

Joe: Yeah, that was a benefit for the O.F.D. and the guys dared me. And you know --

Katie: Hey. I love it. And you were my favorite, I can't wait 'til next month!

Joe: Yeah, well, you know, I'll be glad when it's March.

Katie: You must work out a lot, huh?

Joe: Yeah, I like to work out.

Katie: Yeah, what else do you like?

Joe: Rowing -- on the lake in the good weather.

Katie: Ever take someone?

Joe: Not lately. But you know, when it gets warmer, it'd be nice to take a picnic to one of those little islands where there's no one around -- just rabbits and wildflowers.

Katie: You like rabbits?

Joe: Yeah.

Carly: Please, Jack. You haven't let them stay over.

Jack: You know why.

Carly: Kit is gone.

Jack: Yeah, but Sam's there. He's a felon, Carly.

Carly: A reformed felon, as am I. Sage and J.J., they miss being with me, and Parker's so distant. And you're trying to do everything on your own.

Jack: Not by choice.

Carly: I cannot change what I've done. But I can help with the kids if you let me.

Jack: It's just so hard trying to figure out what's best for them. And Parker -- I just don't know what else to do. Okay, yeah. I'm willing to try something new. They can visit you more.

Carly: And they can stay overnight?

Jack: Not if Sam's there.

Cowboy Jack: That kid who was here earlier, what's his name?

Sam: Parker? What about him?

Cowboy Jack: He knows you've got the hots for his mama.

Sam: Carly -- she's not interested.

Cowboy Jack: You ain't no quitter, Sam. You know you want her. So what are you going to do to get her?

Jack: I don't like the guy. It's not like he's a role model.

Carly: He's made mistakes, Jack. We all have. It's not like Sam hangs out with me and the kids. He has his own room. And most nights he's at the club.

Jack: How long is he planning on staying there?

Carly: Until I can pay him, and he can get a place of his own. Please, Jack.

Jack: As long as he steers clear of Parker. Okay? Listen to me, I don't want him making the situation worse.

Carly: Okay. All right. I promise. Can we start tonight?

Jack: Sure. Yes -- why not?

Gwen: I meant what I said. You come over any time you want for a visit, and I promise to bore you to death with all the details of her life.

Sofie: I wouldn't be getting in the way?

Gwen: No. Actually, I'd really like the company. Why don't you guys come over for dinner tonight?

Aaron: Well, I already promised Sofie that I was gonna help her move into the Lakeview.

Gwen: Well, that's not gonna -- oh, I don't know. I don't know how much time that's going to take, but you guys can just come on over afterwards.

Sofie: Are you sure you want the company?

Gwen: Listen. It's no big deal. I'm gonna make stew. If you can stomach it, we'll just bring out a couple extra bowls, and if you guys want to come by, give us a call. All right?

Sofie: Thank you. Thank you.

Gwen: Say bye.

Aaron: Bye.

Sofie: Bye-bye, baby.

Aaron: You want to go to dinner, don't you?

Sofie: I'm not sure if I can handle it.

Aaron: Well, you wanted a relationship with the baby. You know, I think now you, Gwen and Will need to figure out what that is. Got to get used to each other.

Sofie: Yeah, well what if it's too soon?

Aaron: Well, that's your call. Do whatever feels right.

Sofie: It felt so great holding her. I do want to see her again. I do.

Aaron: Okay. Come on, let's go move your stuff. We can still make it in time for dinner. Come on.

Audrey: Fill out your personalized index cards. Choose as many names as you like. But remember, quality beats quantity.

Ginny: My choice was easy. Later, big guy!

Brad: Holy cow. So it looks like you hit it off with Katie. Good for you.

Joe: Hey, you're on the show with her?

Brad: Yeah, yeah, yeah. She is really high-maintenance, I mean, if you know what I mean. But you know, if that's your type --

Joe: Yeah, she's the one I want.

Brad: Hope you don't regret it.

Joe: Yeah, I'll take my chances, all right?

Brad: Does that say Stan?

Katie: Dream on.

Vienna: Well, how did it go?

Brad: Not so good, actually. Look, I need your help. I need you to --

Vienna: Oh. It would be my pleasure. Excuse me. Audrey, right?

Audrey: Yes.

Vienna: Um, if I would like to book a mate-date party to have at my diner, what would I have to do? Valentine's is coming up, and I'd like to make it special.

Audrey: Results are in. Happy dating!

Brad: How'd you do?

Katie: No matches. Somehow you were the only one who picked me, Stan.

Brad: You know, all these other guys, they don't know quality when they see it.

Vienna: So it's settled then. You need to date Brad.

Katie: No, that is not an option. I can't believe that guy Joe, Mr. February, didn't pick me. I thought I felt sparks.

Brad: Probably just static electricity. Happens a lot this time of year.

Vienna: You really should give Brad another chance.

Katie: It's not gonna happen.

Brad: Hey, did you get Ginny? The things that woman can do with hair. Crazy.

Joe: I could have sworn Katie was into me.

Brad: Yeah. Well, like I told you, she's a little stuck-up. But better luck next time.

Joe: Whatever.

Brad: Hey, where you going in such a hurry?

Katie: Get out of my way!

Brad: Whoa, wait, wait, wait. I just don't get it. I mean, I think you should've been way more popular. You know what? You know what, it's probably because you're on TV. Guys are just really intimidated by that. But not me. You know?

Vienna: Oh, Brad is right. Because it takes a very special man to be with Katie. And his initials are B.S. B.S.

Brad: She meant that in a good way.

Katie: I'm not gonna date you, Brad. Get over it.

Brad: Okay, okay. Okay, all right, but at least let me buy you a consolation latte.

Will: Hey. Welcome, you guys.

Gwen: Hey. Thanks for coming.

Aaron: Yeah, this is for inviting us. Thanks.

Will: All right. I'll get a vase.

Gwen: Listen, dinner's gonna be ready in just a few minutes, but this little one is hungry right now. So, you want to feed her?

Sofie: I don't know. I've never --

Gwen: It's easy. I swear. And she's got the hiccups, so she's gonna need it.

Sofie: Come here, baby.

Gwen: You got her? Just -- there you go. Okay. I'm gonna grab her bottle.

Sofie: I got her. I got her. Shh.

Aaron: You okay?

Sofie: Every time I hold her, I get this overwhelming thing. I don't know how to describe it.

Aaron: Well, it's not bad, is it?

Sofie: No, it's wonderful.

Aaron: Here, sit down.

Gwen: Okay. We're good to go. All right. Here you go. Just make sure you keep her head up as much as you can. Just lift that up so --

[Knock on door]

Will: I got it.

Gwen: Hey, there you go. You're a natural.

Alison: Hey, sorry to barge in, but I want to spoil the baby. Oh, I didn't know you had company.

Gwen: Yeah, we're just about to have a little dinner. Do you want to stay and eat with us? You got to. It's gonna -- it'll just be really fun.

Katie: I can't believe I was a loser at speed-dating.

Brad: You're not a loser. You're hot-looking, unpredictable, fun to be with -- you kill at video games. You are the perfect date.

Katie: Too bad no one else thought so.

Brad: All you need is that one special guy.

Katie: Will you order me a large skim latte? I'll be right in. I just want to check my messages.

Brad: One latte coming up.

Katie: Thank you. Joe, right? Hey, it was nice meeting you earlier. Too bad we weren't a match.

Joe: Yeah. I wrote down your name, but --

Katie: I wrote your name down, too.

Joe: Then why didn't we --

Katie: I think I have a pretty good idea.

Alison: That stew was delicious.

Aaron: Real, real, real good.

Gwen: Thanks. Hey you guys, I'm gonna go check on Hallie for a second.

Alison: I'm gonna go -- I'm gonna go help her. Is she okay?

Gwen: Yeah, she's half-out.

Alison: I'm surprised you invited Sofie.

Gwen: Yeah, why?

Alison: I mean, do you really want Hallie's birth mother hanging around? Doesn't that feel a little weird?

Gwen: Um, I guess it does a little bit, but we promised her that she could come visit Hallie, so -- I don't know, I feel like we're dealing with it pretty well.

Alison: No, definitely. Definitely. Forget I said anything.

Gwen: I'm sorry that you had to see Aaron with Sofie, by the way.

Alison: I mean, I know I was the one who told him, you know, I can't be with him and he can date whoever he wants, it's just -- you know, seeing them, it's hard.

Gwen: Maybe you're not ready to let Aaron go yet.

Will: Hey, you guys want anything else? You want more soda?

Aaron: I'm okay.

Sofie: Yeah, thanks, Will.

Will: Yeah?

Aaron: You glad you came?

Sofie: Yeah, I guess. [Hallie crying] Every time I hear her crying, it breaks my heart.

Katie: Yeah, there must've been a mix-up with the dating sheet. So, if you still want to go out --

Joe: Call me. Any time. And soon, okay?

Katie: I will.

Joe: I'm really glad I ran into you.

Katie: Yeah. Some things are meant to be.

Joe: Definitely. I'll see you.

Katie: Okay. You are so busted!

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

Katie: Really? No idea? None at all? Guess who I just ran into outside? Remember Joe? Are these -- the cards from mate-date. Nice. That is really nice. That is so low.

Brad: I can explain.

Katie: I don't want your pathetic excuses, Brad. In fact, outside of work, I don't want to talk to you or see you again.

Sage: Mommy!

Carly: Hi!

Sage: Daddy said we can stay for dinner.

Carly: Yes, you can. Hey, Parker. You got your books?

Parker: Yeah, it's going to be a blast.

Carly: Where's J.J.?

Jack: He's at a sleepover at Eric's.

Parker: You know, I could've had a sleepover, too.

Carly: Oh, no you couldn't have. Not until your grades improve, Mister.

Jack: You're going to listen to your mother, and you're going to behave yourself tonight, right?

Parker: Whatever.

Sage: What kind of pizza do we have?

Carly: Oh let's see, there's a pepperoni and a cheese, just for you. And there's plenty for Dad, too. If you'd like to stay.

Gwen: Hey, thank you guys, so much again for coming over. We should do this soon.

Sofie: Thanks for dinner.

Aaron: Yeah, it was great.

Gwen: Hey, Sofie. Do you want to say good night to Hallie?

Sofie: You know what, I really don't want to wake her. Um, I should go. Thank you again.

Aaron: Good night, guys.

Will: Yeah.

Alison: I'm just gonna take these into the kitchen.

Gwen: Well, that went about as well as it could have. I mean, it might work out having Sofie around after all.

Sofie: I can't do this! It hurts too much to see the baby.

Sage: Please stay, Daddy, please.

Sam: Whoa, the pizza smells good. Trade you a slice for a cold beer?

Carly: Yeah, okay.

Jack: It's good.

Carly: You're okay with that, right, Jack?

Jack: That's fine.

Parker: Don't I get a say?

Jack and Carly: No.

Jack: No, you deal with it. And you do what your mother tells you. Listen, I'm gonna take a rain check on the dinner, all right? You have fun with the kids.

Carly: Oh, okay.

Jack: Bye, Pumpkin.

Carly: Thank you.

Jack: Mm-hmm. You behave yourself and be polite.

On the next "As the World Turns."

Meg: That's why Paul and I are leaving town. We need to get as far away from Craig and Rosanna as possible.

Paul: Did Craig try and kill my son? He's a dead man.

Joe: Morning, beautiful.

Brad: Well, I need to do something before Katie rides off in the back of Joe's fire engine. If I don't do something, I'm gonna lose her for good.
