Henry: I call.

Vienna: Call me what?

Henry: Aces.

Vienna: What kind of name is that?

Henry: Mm. Queen-high.

Vienna: Well, that's more like it.

Henry: I see you, and I raise you four "Gs." I win. Come to Papa. What?

Vienna: No! Henry, you lose!

Chris: Hallie's fever's down, she responding well to the medication. She's going to be okay.

Gwen: Good. Can we take her home?

Chris: I'd like to keep her overnight for observation, but she can go home Tomorrow.

Gwen: Why Tomorrow? Come on.

Chris: It's just one more day and then she's all yours.

Gwen: I know, I'm sorry, it's just that we almost lost her. It's kind of hard.

Will: She's safe now that Sofieís behind bars.

Chris: Now that Hallieís out of the woods, what do you intend to do about Sofie?

Sofie: I don't want to see him.

Aaron: Sofie, hear me out.

Sofie: We have nothing to say to each other. Let's go.

Cop #3: You really want to go back down to the holding?

Aaron: Talk to me, come on.

Sofie: What do you want?

Aaron: Are you okay? Do you need anything?

Sofie: Yeah, you've done enough.

Aaron: Listen, I'm gonna hire a lawyer, okay? So we can schedule a bail hearing. Get you out of here by today. I asked my dad, he's going to loan me some money.

Sofie: No, I don't want your money. I don't want your help.

Aaron: Sofie --

Sofie: All I want is for you to get out of my life.

Gwen: I've been so worried about Hallie, I didn't even think about Sofie.

Will: She kidnapped Hallie.

Chris: Well, she brought Hallie home and got her the medical attention she needed.

Will: So what?

Chris: Maybe you shouldn't be so hard on her.

Will: It's none of your business.

Gwen: I'm sorry, look, we're obviously still very freaked out about what Sofie did to us.

Will: She belongs in jail.

Chris: Well, I think there's another side to Sofieís story and you need to hear it.

[Cell phone rings]

Casey: Matt.

Matt: Hey, Man. You got the money?

Casey: Yeah, I got it. You can have it today.

Matt: All right. I am hanging out over at a place called Yoís.

Casey: Are you going to be there for awhile?

Matt: Uh, I don't have all day. And I really need that money.

Casey: Chill. I'll head over and drop it off in a few. Hey, Alison, what's up?

Alison: Hey. Hallie was admitted to the hospital last night.

Casey: Yeah, I heard. Have you talked to Will and Gwen about it?

Alison: Uh, not yet, but I'm gonna head over there now and see if they need anything. I'm sure they're just really fried after everything they've been through with Hallieís kidnapping.

Casey: Yeah. How is the kid doing?

Alison: She's better. Thank God.

Casey: Yeah.

Alison: Why don't you come with me, see for yourself?

Casey: Uh, sorry. I canít. But tell them I'm glad the baby's okay. Okay?

Alison: Wait, wait, wait. You can't take five minutes out of your day to check on your friend's baby? What's up with that?

Carly: It's good to be home, isn't it?

Parker: Yeah, I guess.

Jack: That arraignment went fast. Tom's experience is really gonna pay off. I have this feeling that he's gonna get the charges dropped in no time.

Carly: And then you'll go back to normal things -- like hockey practice and homework, taking out the garbage.

Parker: You think things are gonna be normal? Mom, I just spent the night in jail.

Carly: You must be starving. I'll get you something to eat, okay?

Parker: I'm going to go take a shower.

Carly: Okay. What are we gonna do?

Jack: He just needs time.

Carly: He told us, Jack. He told us that Sam was a liar, that we shouldn't trust him. But I didn't believe. Why didn't I believe in him?

Jack: Everything's going to be okay, Carly.

Carly: No, you know, you don't know that. I'm the mother. I'm supposed to be able to fix this, and I canít.

Jack: So I called school, and I let them know that you weren't going to be in today. And that J.J. was going to pick up your homework assignments.

Parker: Okay.

Carly: Hey. You know, we've been through bad stuff before.

Parker: Not this bad.

Jack: I'll call Tom. And we'll get a strategy together for how we're going to help you, all right?

Parker: Good luck with that.

Carly: Parker, don't be so negative, Honey. No one is going to punish you for saving me.

Parker: Wanna bet?

Jack: Parker, we are doing everything we can to protect you. You know that, right?

Parker: It's too late. Sam's dead. I killed him.

Jack: Okay, we are going through all the formalities because we have to. But in the end, everyone will understand that you did this to help your mom.

Parker: What if they don't?

Carly: Hey. Look at me. You saved me from a horrible man. No one will punish you for that.

Kit: Well, ain't this sweet? I hate to interrupt family time, but now I get my say.

Casey: You caught me at a bad time.

Alison: Casey, your best friend's baby was just kidnapped.

Casey: Yeah, I know that, but she's back now. I'll call them later.

Alison: You're not dressed for work, so it can't be that.

Casey: Are you a detective now?

Alison: Okay, if you don't want to tell me, fine, no problem. I'll just tell Will and Gwen you were too busy to see their sick kid.

Casey: Oh, come on, give me a break.

Alison: You give them a break. Now would be a good time to show that you're still a friend. I mean, unless you don't feel that way.

Casey: You don't know how I feel. Besides, I don't want to bother them. If they've got a sick kid on their hands, the last thing they need is me hanging around.

Alison: Okay. Whatever. I get it, you're busy, you got a lot of stuff to do. Don't let me stop you.

Casey: No, no, no. You can't guilt me into this.

Alison: Don't worry. I'll tell them you had important plans you couldn't break.

Casey: You're something else. Okay. I'll go with you.

Chris: You could give Sofie a break. You could influence the judge, maybe get her some leniency.

Will: Look, there's no excuse for kidnapping. Gwen's a mom too, but I guess that doesn't count.

Gwen: Listen, we just, we haven't had a chance to talk this over yet. We can't answer these questions right now. I'm sorry.

Chris: Yeah, you're right. You're right, I'm sorry guys. I'll check on Hallie later.

Will: What's his problem?

Gwen: Sofie reached out to him, he probably feels a certain level of responsibility to her.

Will: Well, I'm his cousin, I think family should count for something.

Gwen: Well, we can figure that out later.

Will: There's no way I'm letting Sofie get away with what she's done.

Aaron: Sofie, I know you don't want to talk to me, but I'm only trying to help. You should know that by now.

Sofie: All I know is that you let me down.

Aaron: So I'm still going to hire a lawyer to get you out of here. You don't deserve to be in jail.

Sofie: You know, I wouldn't even be in jail if it weren't for you. You told Gwen and Will where I was.

Aaron: I thought you were leaving the country. I only did it because I was concerned about you and Hallie.

Sofie: Now I lost everything because of you. The last thing I want is your help. I'll get out of this on my own.

Henry: Maybe a little sugar will sweeten you up.

Vienna: Not only were you gambling yesterday, you were dreaming about it and I do not approve. If anything, you should be dreaming about me, not some inside straight with deuces wild.

Henry: I know, I know, I know, Leibshin. How can I make it up to you? I know you want me to. How bout if I find that special little place that drives you crazy? Wow. It get chilly in here, or is it just me?

Vienna: No, it won't work, Henry.

Henry: What? What won't work? Give me a chance here, Honey. Come on.

Vienna: Why should I? If I give you anything, you just gamble it away.

Henry: No, that's not true. Let's, let's start over here. All right? What do you say that we, uh, you know that --

Vienna: No! Forget it, Henry. You know what? No more sex as long as you're gambling!

Henry: But I'm not.

Vienna: Better yet, no more sex as long as you're thinking or dreaming about gambling!

Kit: Sam's dead and you didn't even call me, Carly?

Carly: I am so sorry.

Kit: I'm out on the road and I get call from a cop telling me my Sam is dead. Do you have any idea how that made me feel?

Carly: I know. It's awful. It is.

Kit: Yeah. It is. 'Cause your Parker killed my Sam.

Jack: Hey, you need to calm down.

Carly: Kit.

Kit: Don't you tell me what to do.

Carly: There are things about Sam that you don't know.

Kit: Oh, like what? He's dead, Carly. He's dead! What else is there to say?

Jack: I mean it, back off, Kit.

Kit: Oh, like your boy? Did he back off when he blew Sam away?

Carly: Hey! He said stop it.

Kit: Yeah, he should have been locked up the minute he started spreading rumors about Sam. He's a murderer.

Jack: All right, that's it. You got to go. Now.

Kit: Sam loved me. All he wanted to do was make people happy, and your son goes and kills him.

Carly: This is not Parker's fault. This is Samís fault! He's dead, Kit, because he tried to rape me!

Tom: Hey. I got here as soon as I got your message. So much for quality family time last night, huh?

Margo: Yeah, no kidding. It's gonna take a while before we can reschedule.

Tom: What's that?

Margo: Parker. Tom, the D.A. wants to charge him as an adult.

Tom: You can't be serious. He's a kid.

Margo: I know. Legally, he meets the criteria to be tried as an adult. And the D.A. wants to present it as murder one, premeditation.

Tom: Well, the D.A. is making a mistake. He was protecting his mother.

Margo: He got the gun before he knew Carly was in trouble.

Tom: Hey. You're taking the wrong tackle on this.

Margo: This is not my call. I present the evidence, the D.A. runs with it.

Tom: Then you use your influence to help Jack. He's one of your best friends. You've known Parker his entire life.

Margo: I would do anything for Jack or anyone in his family. There's a pattern of behavior here. Parker has been acting out against Sam for some time now. I mean, he stole his dummy, he set it on fire.

Tom: You only know that because Jack confided in you.

Margo: If the D.A. wants to try him as an adult, there is nothing I can do about it.

Tom: Well then you better know, I'm going to fight ya on this one.

Kit: You're a liar. Sam ain't no rapist. You led him on.

Jack: That's it, you got to go.

Kit: Get your hands off me!

Carly: He attacked me, Kit.

Kit: Oh, you've always been so jealous of me and Sam. So Parker goes and kills him so you and Jack can get --

Jack: Sam tried to force himself on Carly! Parker stopped him!

Kit: Oh, that's bull! Your son is a cold-blooded murderer. I'm gonna make sure they throw the book at you, Kid! They're going to lock you up and throw away the key!

Jack: Get out! Get out! Get out!

Henry: How can I control what I'm dreaming about?

Vienna: No, I would prefer if you were dreaming about me.

Henry: I do, I do. I dream about you all the time. One of my favorite recurring dreams is with you playing the star forward on O.U.'s women's basketball team. I mean, the hoops I go through for you.

Vienna: You're dreaming about me and other women?

Henry: Well, I think they're the cheerleaders, actually. They're cheering for us. They're saying, "Go, Henry, go Vienna, all the way. Rah, rah, rah! Sis-boom-bah!" You know?

Vienna: You know what? This is even worse than I thought it was. Not only are you gambling in your sleep, but you're unfaithful to me in your dreams.

Henry: Vienna, Honey, Honey, Honey, Honey!

Aaron: Sofie, we're friends. Can't we work this out?

Sofie: There's nothing left to say.

Aaron: Well, if you need anything, you can call me. Hey, Chris. Sofie won't let me hire a lawyer or help her fight the kidnapping charges, so maybe -- if you're heading in there, maybe she'll listen to you.

Chris: Yeah, I'll see what I can do.

Aaron: Okay, great. Thanks, man.

Chris: Yeah, yeah. Sofie?

Sofie: How's Hallie?

Chris: She had an infection, but I gave her some antibiotics. She's going home tomorrow.

Sofie: Home. I'm glad she's okay.

Chris: I didn't come here to talk about Hallie. I'm here because I'm worried about you.

Gwen: Hey! What are you -- what is all this? You have to stop spending all your money on Hallie.

Alison: How is she?

Gwen: She's doing a lot better.

Will: Thanks for coming by, man.

Casey: I thought you could use all the friends you could get.

Will: Yeah, tell me about it.

Casey: Pretty rough, huh? [Cell phone ringing] Sorry about this, Guys. Hey.

Matt: You get lost?

Casey: Not exactly.

Matt: I've been waiting. If you don't have the money, just tell me, straight up.

Casey: No, I got it. I had to stop at the hospital to check on a friend.

Matt: Are you done?

Casey: I just got here. I said I will meet you, and I will. Hang tight.

Matt: This is not cool, Casey.

Alison: What the hell are you doing?

Chris: I think there's a reason why you took Hallie.

Sofie: There is. I wanted my baby, and Will and Gwen wouldn't let me see her. I never should have given her up.

Chris: Did your doctor talk you about post-partum depression?

Sofie: No.

Chris: It's a very real condition. Your doctor should have told you.

Sofie: Well, I don't have my baby, so it doesn't matter.

Chris: Yes, Sofie, it does. It's affecting you more than you realize. Remember -- remember when we first met at the hospital? I could tell you were sad.

Sofie: I lost my baby. Of course, I was sad.

Chris: No, but post-partum depression is a very real condition. You could lose sleep. And it can affect you when you're trying to make rational decisions.

Sofie: Like deciding to kidnap my daughter? I knew what I was doing, and I don't need a medical condition to justify it.

Chris: I'd be willing to testify for you. And a judge would probably only give you probation if you got yourself into some sort of treatment program.

Sofie: Look, I appreciate that you are trying to be nice to me, but I didn't ask for your help, and I don't want it.

Casey: Why are you getting in my face?

Alison: You don't just waltz into a hospital, visit your friend's sick baby, and then answer your phone the minute it rings. It's rude.

Casey: No, it's none of your business what I do. I told you I had plans, and I forgot to cancel them. You don't have to jump down my throat.

Alison: Okay, I didn't realize this would be such an imposition for you.

Casey: No, no, what's with you? I already have one mother. I don't need another one.

Alison: I shouldn't have invited you here.

Matt: Hey, Hughes!

Casey: Matt! I didn't expect to see you here. What's up?

Matt: Hi, there. You don't look sick.

Alison: I'm not.

Matt: Aren't you going to introduce me to your friend? I'm Matt.

Alison: Hi, I'm Alison. I used to be Casey's friend. I won't keep you.

Matt: You move fast, Man. Good going.

Casey: You should not have come here.

Jack: Kit's got a big mouth. She's can't do anything to you.

Parker: You don't know that.

Carly: She wasn't there, Honey. She didn't see Sam attacking me.

Jack: Parker, she was just mouthing off. Nothing -- nothing she says matters. Nothing.

[Doorbell ringing]

Tom: Hey, sorry to drop by unannounced.

Jack: Is there news?

Tom: Parker, I'd really like to talk to your parents privately.

Carly: Parker, take your plate to the kitchen, okay? Tom? What is it?

Tom: The D.A. is thinking about trying Parker as an adult.

Jack: What?! Can't Margo do something?

Carly: What exactly does that mean?

Tom: If Parker's convicted, we're looking at 20 to life.

Cop: This just came from forensics.

Margo: Are they sure about this?

Cop: Absolutely.

Margo: Well, this definitely complicates things.

Carly: Go talk to Tom, Jack. I'll be right there.

Jack: Okay.

Parker: I'm okay.

Carly: You don't have to be so brave, you know.

Parker: I want to hear what Tom has to say.

Carly: Okay.

Tom: Jack, Margo's gotta do this by the book.

Jack: Well, can't she speak to the D.A.? Isn't she on our side here?

Parker: I heard what you told my parents.

Tom: Yeah, Parker, I'm going to do everything I can to fight that, but I did want to let your parents know so there weren't anymore surprises.

[Doorbell ringing]

Jack: Excuse me. Margo.

Margo: I am so sorry to intrude, but I have to go over a few things with Parker.

Jack: You covered the bases last night.

Margo: I know, but I have a few more questions.

Carly: Tom told us about the D.A.'s plan.

Margo: It's a tough situation, but nothing's written in stone yet.

Jack: So why are you here?

Margo: I want to take Parker to Metro. I have to clarify a few details.

Carly: Oh, no, no. No, he does not need to go through this again. Do we have to do that, Tom?

Tom: Your son is a suspect in a murder investigation. I highly recommend that you cooperate at this point.

Jack: Can't we do this at the station?

Margo: No.

Parker: I -- I don't want to go back there.

Carly: Then you don't have to, Honey.

Jack: Carly, maybe we should do what Margo wants. Maybe this will help Parker.

Carly: He just got home, Jack. He's exhausted.

Margo: We should go over the details while they're still fresh in his mind.

Jack: I'll be right there with Parker.

Carly: I don't like this. This feels like some kind of set-up, Jack.

Jack: Let Parker walk through it, and then maybe Margo will wake up and realize that Parker shouldn't be charged with a crime at all.

Chris: There's medication that can help you with the depression you're feeling. I can recommend a very good therapist.

Sofie: No, I don't want medication. I don't want to feel better. I don't want to -- I don't want to fight the charges. Just leave me alone.

Chris: You'll never be able to cope with losing Hallie unless you get help.

Sofie: You know, I did not lose Hallie. I gave her away.

Chris: Hey, I know you miss your baby. Okay? But you got your whole life ahead of you. Come on, come on, think about your future.

Sofie: You know what? I have no future if I don't have my baby. So please, just leave me alone.

Chris: How's Hallie?

Gwen: She's a lot more alert than she was last night.

Chris: Good. Hey, can I talk to you guys privately? It'll only take a minute.

Alison: I'll stay with her.

Gwen: Thanks.

Will: What's up?

Chris: I went to see Sofie.

Will: Good for you. Did you give her our best?

Gwen: Will --

Chris: She's being held in jail until her preliminary hearing. She's refusing help. She won't see a lawyer.

Will: Okay.

Chris: I think Sofie's suffering from post-partum depression. She needs to be checked out by a doctor.

Will: You're a doctor.

Chris: She needs a psychiatrist. You know what? I know what she did to you was a terrible thing, and you have every right to be upset, but I'm asking you. Could you just consider giving her a break? If you don't, I'm afraid of what's going to happen to her.

Casey: I know you wanted the money, but I was coming. You could have waited a few more minutes.

Matt: Hey, when you said you were at the hospital, I just figured I'd just make it easier on you. Sorry if I interrupted you and your friend Alison.

Casey: I don't need anyone to know my personal business. It's all there.

Matt: You wouldn't be here if we hadn't have paid off that guard.

Casey: Okay, so now we're even.

Matt: I'm sorry if I gave you the squeeze, Man, but I was under a little pressure of my own.

Casey: Yeah, yeah, I get it.

Matt: Are we cool?

Casey: Yeah, no hard feelings, it's over. Good luck with everything, Matt. You know, stay out of trouble.

Carly: Are you okay?

Parker: I don't want to be here.

Carly: Margo, I think that you need to know what I was going through before Parker got here, how Sam was attacking me.

Margo: Yes, yes, and you will get your statement on record, but right now, I need to know Parker's version of the events. So can you start at the beginning?

Parker: I wanted Sam dead.

Jack: Parker.

Tom: Parker, not another word.

Will: I don't care about Sofie's problem. She ran away to New York, and Hallie got sick. That's all I need to know.

Chris: Sofie's suffering, and you guys are the only ones that can help her. It's the only way she's gonna get over giving up her baby.

Will: Chris, why you are pushing us on this?

Chris: Because I know she's a good person. And I think you do, too. I'm going to go check on Hallie.

Will: I still don't see why we should give her a break.

Gwen: She brought Hallie back. She deserves credit for doing that.

Will: The only reason Sofie came back was 'cause she didn't have any money. She had a plane ticket that Aaron bought for her, but if she had money, we might never have seen Hallie again.

Gwen: But she didnít. She came back. How can you tell your daughter that you put your birth mother in jail?

Will: Sofie belongs in jail. She kidnapped Hallie.

Gwen: We did the same thing when we ran away with Johnny. I think that she deserves another chance, especially if she's suffering from post-partum. Come on.

Will: So you think we owe this to her?

Gwen: I think it's honestly the only way that we can really get past it.

Will: Fine.

Gwen: Will, we have our daughter back. It's all that matters now.

Will: Okay, but if we go through with this, and we help Sofie out, then I have one condition. She never goes near Hallie again.

Tom: Parker, I need you to answer questions about what happened that night. Nothing more.

Parker: Yeah, but you know what I meant.

Jack: We do, but you gotta be careful about what you say, Buddy.

Tom: Margo, you need to give us a little leeway here. He's just a kid.

Margo: I know, but he's a prime suspect in a murder case.

Tom: Well, he says he showed up, saw someone attacking his mother and put a bullet in him.

Margo: There were two bullets in Sam.

Carly: That's not true. Parker shot Sam once.

Margo: Forensics found two bullets.

Jack: I assume the bullets that were tested came from the same gun?

Margo: Yes. Parker, how many times did you shoot Sam?

Carly: One! He shot once! I heard it!

Margo: Carly, please, I'm asking Parker.

Carly: I knew it. I knew it. I knew this was some kind of set up. Parker was not some crazed killer on a rampage! How could you do this to us?

Jack: Carly, you got to calm down.

Carly: I'm not going to calm down! She won't even take my statement. I was almost raped for God's sakes! If she'd listen to what happened here, she wouldn't push it this far! You cannot do this to my son!

Alison: Are you sure you guys want to do this?

Casey: Do what? Sorry I took off. I had something to take care of. What I miss?

Will: Gwen wants to drop the kidnapping charges.

Casey: Are you cool with that?

Will: Yeah.

Casey: Did you call the D.A.'s office yet?

Gwen: Is that what we need to do next?

Casey: Sure, yeah. Once she's in the system, the D.A. will handle the case. You should call. You know, I actually have the number memorized, it used to be my dadís.

Gwen: Thank you. You just made our lives a lot easier.

Casey: Once you call to the D.A.'s office though, you can't change your mind.

Gwen: Don't worry, we wonít. We're definitely doing the right thing.

Lawyer: Officer, hold on, I'm Sofie Duranís attorney.

Sofie: I told Aaron that I don't want a lawyer. I just want my baby.

Lawyer: I don't know who Aaron is, but I read about you in the paper. Ms. Duran, I can help you get your baby back.

Will: Do you need us to come by the office and sign some papers or something? Okay. Let us know. Bye. So, it's a done deal. The D.A. is going to drop the kidnapping charges.

Gwen: We did the right thing. I promise. Hey, thank you again so much for the phone number. Thank you.

Casey: Yeah, no problem. I'm glad I could do something good today.

Gwen: I want to go see Sofie, tell her what we decided.

Will: Now? Well, what about Hallie?

Gwen: She's in good hands. I've been speaking to the nurse on the floor. Her shift's over, but she volunteered to stay on. We're not going to be gone that long.

Alison: I could stay with her.

Gwen: No, no, no. You guys have already done way too much. And just thank you so much for coming. Really, you're the best.

Alison: Look at you, coming through for your pals in the end. I guess you can be a good guy.

Casey: Thanks. So, can I buy you lunch? Unless you have something better to do?

Alison: I can't say no to a friend.

Henry: What do I have to do to make you believe me?

Vienna: No, this is serious, Henry. If you keep gambling and roving around looking at other women -- well, then, you and I, we are in serious trouble.

Henry: Listen -- wait a second now. When you fell in love with me, you fell in love with the whole package. Do I like to play the ponies, and play a little poker? You bet your sweet patootie I do. But -- playing poker got us the diner, and you love Al's, don't you?

Vienna: Yes, I do! But I don't love that your dreaming about the women's basketball team!

Henry: Wait, what -- what about the women's hockey team? Is that a deal breaker? Just kidding! I'm kidding! Please, please, come on! Look, I'll be honest with you, I have been dreaming about beautiful women since I was old enough to suck my thumb. Look what it got me. It got me you. You are all my dreams come true. I -- this is going to sound very corny -- whenever I thought about loving someone so beautiful and so perfect, I thought it was going to be just a fantasy, yet here you are. And I can't help myself, Sweetheart. I think about you. I dream about you every day and every night.

Vienna: You do love me. Don't you, Henry?

Henry: I more than love you. Whenever I'm with you, I can't control myself. I'm kind of out of my mind. You better watch out because I'm not really responsible for my actions.

Vienna: Yes, Henry, you're mine! You know what?

Henry: What, what, what?

Vienna: Better yet -- I'm going to teach you a lesson.

Henry: You're going to teach me a lesson? I like that. Why don't I be the shy, little student, and you be the star basketball player? The ball is in your court!

Jack: I know you think you're protecting Parker, but you're making it harder for him, Carly.

Carly: Parker shot Sam once, Jack. I was right here. I heard it.

Tom: Jack, you know the drill. Margo's allowed to ask these questions. As hard as it is, let her just do her job.

Jack: I realize that, Tom. I just didn't -- I didn't realize how difficult it would be.

Tom: And if you keep interrupting, she's going to order you out.

Jack: We don't want to make things harder for Parker. Okay?

Carly: I'm sorry. Hey, just answer Margo's questions, okay? Tell her everything because the sooner you do, the sooner we can leave.

Parker: I don't think I can.

Jack: We'll be right here.

Carly: It's all right.

Margo: Okay, Parker, can you show me exactly what happened? Do you think you can do that?

Parker: I'll try.

Margo: Where did you enter the club?

Parker: I came in the front door. Sam had my mom on the couch over there. He was grabbing her, and she was screaming, and he just wouldn't stop. She had this look in her eyes --

Margo: Where were you standing?

Parker: I was right here. My mom was over there. She couldn't stop him.

Margo: Okay, Parker, do you remember holding the gun? Can you show me?

Parker: He was on top of her, he was pulling at her clothes, he was kissing her, but then he sat up for a second. And I pulled the trigger and he dropped. I heard him hit the floor.

Margo: All right, thanks. I know this is really hard for you. You're doing a good job. I need you to be very clear with me now. How many times did you shoot Sam?

Jack: Tell the truth, Buddy.

Parker: I don't know.

Jack: We need to take Parker home, now.

Margo: Yeah, I'm sorry, Jack. I had to do this.

Jack: Doesn't make it any easier for him.

Margo: Don't leave town.

Jack: By the book. I know.

Margo: Tom, I'll see you later.

Carly: Why won't she let me make a statement? The man was attacking me.

Tom: Margo has to establish a timeline. She will hear your side of things. Parker, why didn't you say anything to anyone about Sam's threats before this happened?

Parker: I did! No one believed me.

Jack: We didn't listen to him, Tom.

Carly: We thought he was making it up because he was so angry with me.

Parker: I didn't want you to get hurt.

Tom: Listen, you guys have been through enough today. Why don't you go home, and get some rest. I will be in touch if there's any news, okay?

Jack: Thanks. Come on, let's go home.

Casey: God, it's good to be reminded how important friends are. You know, it's so crazy, they got the new baby. And I just didn't expect that when I came home.

Alison: Yeah, you did act kind of weird the other day when you didn't want to hold her.

Casey: Well, it was a lot to take in at once. Our lives just went in different directions.

Alison: Yeah, well, I apologize. I didn't mean to push you, and I think sometimes I need to think before I speak a little more.

Casey: No, no, no. I can take it. I just spent a long time at a place where social skills weren't exactly valued.

Lisa: Hello, you two, sit down, Darling. It's so good to see you both. Have you any news about little Hallie?

Alison: Oh, yeah, we just came back from the hospital. She's doing great.

Lisa: I'm so glad. I will tell Barbara. I know she'll be relieved because she felt terrible about what happened. Those poor kids have gone through so much. They just have to put all the bad stuff behind them. Right, Casey?

Casey: That's right, Grandma.

Lisa: Oh, Darling, how are you enjoying your bartending?

Casey: Oh, I love it. I owe you so much. Everyone's been so cool, and the tips aren't that bad either.

Lisa: Well, I'm glad to hear it. But don't like it so much you forget about college.

Casey: Oh, don't -- don't start. Come on, you need me here to take care of you.

Lisa: I wish you'd been here last night.

Casey: What?

Alison: Why, what happened?

Lisa: Oh, well, I had to fire one of the bartenders. There was money missing from the register.

Alison: That's terrible.

Casey: Maybe someone miscounted or something.

Lisa: No, no, no. Nothing like that. But it's nothing for you to worry about, is it Sweetie?

Casey: No.

Sofie: Hi, why are you guys here? Did something happen to Hallie?

Gwen: No, she's fine. We have good news. Will spoke with the D.A. they can arrange for you to plead guilty to a lesser charge.

Will: You're going to need to hire a lawyer to arrange it.

Sofie: I have a lawyer. He just left.

Gwen: Oh, we thought -- we thought that you didn't have one.

Sofie: I didn't at first, but he found me. And I think he can really help me.

Will: What's he doing for you?

Sofie: Helping me getting my baby back.

Tom: Why didn't you tell me about the two bullets before you strong-armed my client in there?

Margo: You think I want Parker to suffer? I mean, for God's sake, he's Halís son.

Tom: Then do something about it.

Margo: Well, Hal would play this by the book. So, my report stands. Parker is known as a troubled teen. He broke into a locked cabinet, he took a gun, he went to Metro, he shot and killed a man.

Tom: He was protecting his mother. Get Carly's statement on record. She's a victim, too.

Margo: Honey, there's no way that Parker could have known that Sam was trying to rape Carly. This has premeditation written all over it.

Tom: You're going to do this? That young boy? You're going to throw the book at him and ruin his life? You of all people should know what that can do to a family.

Margo: I feel sorry for all of them, especially Parker, but I cannot change facts.

Carly: I'm proud of you, Parker. You told the truth.

Parker: It's really bad, isn't it?

Jack: Well, it's not as open and shut as I thought it would be. Tom's a great lawyer. We just have to hope that Margo will stand up to the D.A.

Parker: But there's still a chance I could go to jail, isn't there?

Carly: We're not going to let that happen.

Parker: I'm trying to believe you, Mom, but it's hard. I'll be upstairs.

Carly: Okay. 20 years to life? How can they even consider doing that to him?

Jack: I'm just as scared as you are. I'm a cop. If I can't protect my own son, what's the point?

Carly: If only I'd listened to him, Jack.

Jack: Hey, you're not alone in this. I'm just as responsible as you are. We both failed Parker before. But I swear, we won't fail him again.

On the next "As the World Turns."

Craig: I am not giving up on getting Lucy and Johnny back. I am not giving up on you, Meg.

Paul: I might just have a plan that could solve both of our problems.

Emily: I just thought you'd want to find your son.

Meg: What?

Paul: Congratulate me. I own Worldwide.

Casey: What do you like?

Matt: I'll take whatever you got.

Henry: Gray's eyes have practically been undressing you. And I'm not going to let him get away with it.

Gray: You give me one night with Vienna, and your debt will be forgiven.
