Susan: You're getting their release papers ready. And like I said, Luke and Noah will be sore for a few days, but I think any long-term effects will be mainly psychological.

Holden: I still can't believe this happened.

Susan: Lucky you got there when you did. Thank God for that.

Lily: Do you think it was just a coincidence that they were on their way to see Colonel Mayer?

Holden: Look, I'm no fan of Winston Mayer, but I don't think he could have known about Noah's truck breaking down.

Lily: He sent a message for Noah to come visit him.

Holden: Noah didn't even want to go. Ameera was the one who wanted to see him.

Lily: Exactly. What do we really know about this girl who just shows up out of nowhere?

Holden: You think she had something to do with what happened?

Lily: I don't know. What if -- what if the whole thing was a set-up? And what if Colonel Mayer sent Ameera here to find a way to hurt Luke and Noah?

Alison: Hey, you shouldn't be doing that. Your stitches aren't set.

Casey: Yeah, well, Matt disappeared and no one is here to cover the bar so I had no other choice. Shouldn't you be at work?

Alison: Well, my shift's over and I wanted to catch up with Matt. Where did he say he was going?

Casey: Um, he didnít. When I got here, another bartender was covering.

Alison: Well, that's weird. When I left him in Old Town, he said he had to come back to the bar.

Casey: Something must've came up.

Alison: Or I was right and he is hiding something.

Bonnie: Brad? Brad? Hey, where are you? Brad, I got your message -- whoa -- [Laughter] Very funny, very funny. You got me, okay? Get up. Brad? Brad? Brad, Brad, wake up. Brad, please -- please, wake -- Brad? Wake up.

Kit: Oh, damn it! Wrong blonde.

Carly: Katie! Katie! Katie?

Lily: We can take you home.

Luke: Great. I've had enough of hospitals.

Noah: Yeah, me, too.

Holden: Ameera, can we speak to you a minute? How are you? I'm sure this was very traumatic for you.

Ameera: I feel terrible. This is all my fault.

Lily: What do you mean?

Ameera: I'm the reason we were on that road in the first place.

Lily: Why were you so anxious to see Colonel Mayer?

Ameera: He was like a father to me in Iraq. I couldn't believe when I heard he was in jail.

Lily: What do you mean he was like a father to you? What do you mean?

Ameera: Why are you asking me all these questions?

Holden: We can't help but wonder if Colonel Mayer was behind this.

Ameera: Behind what?

Lily: Did he hire those men to beat up Luke and Noah and use you to carry out his plan?

Bonnie: Brad, come on, come on, come on --

Brad: Where am I?

Bonnie: Brad, we're in the studio. Can you remember anything that happened?

Brad: Ooh, my head hurts. Oh, man, did we do shots again?

Bonnie: No, Brad, I came in and you were on the ground. Look, I'm going to call 911. Don't move. Hi, yes, I need an ambulance at WOAK. Someone's been hurt. No, no, he was unconscious and now he's awake. Yes, please, please, as soon as possible. Thank you. Thank you. Brad, help is on the way. Do you remember anything?

Brad: I think someone knocked me out.

Carly: Katie! Katie, can you hear me?

[Kit sneaks out the door with her bat]

Jack: Carly?

Carly: Jack!

Jack: Yeah? Katie -- Katieís unconscious. I can't wake her up.

Jack: What? Katie? Katie? Katie, Katie -- Katie. It's Jack.

Katie: Jack?

Jack: Hey --

Katie: What happened? Ow, somebody hit me in the back of the head.

Carly: Do you think Kit did this?

Jack: I wouldn't know. Margo called off a guy I had tailing her. Listen, hey, don't worry, I'm going to take care of you. Go out to the farm and check on Parker.

Carly: Yeah, yeah --

Jack: I've got to get her to the hospital. Let's sit you up.

Katie: Oh, my head --

Jack: I know, nice and slow. There we go. There we go.

Ameera: I understand you hate him, but that's why I wanted Noah to take me to him. So I could see, try to understand. But what happened today had nothing to do with the Colonel or me. Those men would have hurt me, too.

Lily: I'm not saying that you intentionally wanted Luke or Noah to be harmed. I'm saying, is it possible the Colonel had you lure them to that place?

Ameera: I haven't see the Colonel since he left Iraq. I was the one those men were after, they tried to take me in their car. Luke and Noah protected me.

Holden: She was just as much a victim in all this.

Lily: You're right.

Holden: Look, I'm sorry. We didn't mean to upset you. Just wanted to make sure that the Colonel didn't trick you into helping him.

Susan: I've got release papers for you to sign.

Holden: Okay, I'll take care of it.

Lily: I'm just upset. I shouldn't have blamed you. I'm sorry.

Ameera: I haven't known Luke or Noah long, but they've been really good to me. Noah is the closest thing I have to a brother.

Lily: Come on, let's see if they need help.

Casey: I don't get why you're so suspicious.

Alison: Do you know of a customer that -- a special customer that Matt has here?

Casey: We've got a lot of regulars if that's what you mean.

Alison: He's run into this guy twice, and he gets all weird around him.

Casey: Weird how?

Alison: Well, the first time we saw him, he said he didn't know him. And then the next time, he said he knew him from work and he was a big tipper.

Casey: What's so strange about that?

Alison: Well, how many of your customers go around hounding you because you make such a great martini?

Casey: It's about time, man.

Alison: Where have you been?

Susan: Oh, what's going on?

Bonnie: I found Brad unconscious at WOAK.

Susan: Brad, what happened?

Brad: From this goose egg on my head, I'd say someone knocked me out. I sure didn't see it coming.

Susan: Put him in here. Let's take a look.

Holden: That sounds rough.

Bonnie: Yeah. He scared me half to death. I think he's going to be okay, though. He was already making bad jokes in the ambulance, so -- what are you doing here?

Holden: Uh, Luke and Noah were beat up.

Bonnie: Oh, my God.

Holden: Yeah, Lily and I -- we got there just in time. It was horrible. But thank God they're going to be okay.

Bonnie: Well, how are you?

Holden: Me? I'm fine. We were just about to take them home.

Bonnie: We?

Holden: Yeah. Looks like Lily and I are going to try and work things out.

Bonnie: Yeah, I always knew that's where your heart was. You know, I'm going to see how Brad's doing. Take care of yourself, okay?

Matt: I had to stop by the bank before it was closed. I'm really sorry to leave you hanging, man. Let me -- let me wash up and I'll take over, okay?

Alison: What happened to your pants?

Matt: Oh, man, what --

Casey: It looks like the WOAK logo.

Alison: Yeah, that's exactly what it is.

Matt: Yeah, well, what is it doing on my butt?

Alison: Good question.

Casey: Oh, my gosh, wait, you're telling me someone turned you into a walking ad without you even knowing?

Matt: Yeah, I guess. You know, they were stenciling them around town, I think I just bumping into one. I hope it comes out.

Alison: Hey, don't tell me that's not suspicious.

Casey: Actually, I think it's pretty funny.

Holden: Bonnie was just giving her good wishes.

Luke: I can't wait to get out of here.

Holden: Is Brad okay?

Susan: Nothing a few aspirin and an ice pack can't cure.

Lily: Brad's here?

Holden: Yeah, I'll explain on the way out. Let's get these guys home.

Lily: Okay.

Susan: Take it easy.

Nurse #3: Is that room free? We're backed up in emergency.

Susan: It's all yours.

Jack: Susan, hey -- the E.R. sent us up here. Would you mind taking a look at Katie?

Susan: What is going on? I just gave away my last room.

Katie: Its okay, I'm fine.

Jack: No, you need a doctor. She was whacked on the head pretty hard.

Susan: I'm going to double you up. There's an extra gurney in there. Take her in there, Jack.

Jack: Sure --

Susan: And I'll take a look -- could you help her up on that gurney?

Jack: You got it --

Katie: Oh, you've got to be kidding me.

Brad: Were you in an accident? Why are you here?

Susan: Excuse me, I kind of like to know how this happened myself.

Katie: I -- someone hit me from behind when I was at Carly's house. And no, it wasn't -- ow -- it wasn't her.

Susan: Oh, sorry.

Brad: Who hit you?

Katie: I don't know who it was. I didn't see them. What happened to you?

Brad: Never mind about me. Are you okay?

Katie: Yeah, I'm fine.

Brad: What are you doing at Carly's?

Katie: I was picking up a book for Parker.

Jack: Okay, enough of the third degree. She was unconscious when I found her. I don't think she was out very long.

Brad: Well, I guess you're lucky your white knight showed up.

Jack: Will you let Susan do her exam, please? What are you doing here anyway?

Brad: I got whacked on the head, too, at the studio. You know, which you'd think that my -- my brother the detective, oh, I'm sorry, ex-detective, would be concerned about.

Katie: Are you all right?

Bonnie: No, he's fine. I found him and called 911.

Katie: You just happened by?

Bonnie: No, Brad called me to meet him for a date.

Katie: Oh, I guess you're lucky she was there.

Brad: Yeah, I was.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, wait a second. You both were hit on the head near around the same time in different places?

Brad: Yeah, what's up with that?

Katie: It must be a coincidence, right?

Susan: Excuse me, could you people please give me two minutes to finish my job?

Matt: Where'd Alison go?

Casey: She had to leave. And you should be glad. Because she's asking a lot of questions about you.

Matt: Oh, yeah? Do you think she's into me?

Casey: Um, she's into wondering why you've been hanging out with some guy you said was a special customer. What's that about?

Matt: It's no big deal, that guy's nobody.

Casey: Hey, man, it's me you're talking to. Your old cellmate. What are you up to?

Matt: Give me a break, man. I ran into a regular and I was being friendly to him.

Casey: No, I know I owe you, man. But I'm tired of lying to my friends and family about how we met. You know, why can't you just come clean and tell them we were in Statesville together?

Matt: You're not going to say a word to anyone.

Margo: Jack! Where's Katie? Where is she?

Jack: Hey, she's -- she's fine. She's a little shaken up, but Susan's in with her now. She'll be out in a minute.

Margo: Well, what the hell happened?

Jack: Carly found Katie unconscious on her kitchen floor. Katie came by to get a book for Parker and we think that Kit attacked her.

Margo: Kit? So Kit is your go-to for every crime that happens in Oakdale now?

Jack: Margo, there is something that you don't know. Carly provoked Kit. She told Kit that we had evidence to prove that she was the one who killed Sam.

Margo: Why? Why would she do that, Jack? I was very clear, telling both of you to stay away from Kit. Let me handle the investigation of Parker's case --

Jack: The point is, I think Carly was the target, only Kit attacked Katie instead. And when she found out her mistake, she took off.

Margo: That is exactly why I wanted you to stay out of this. If Kit is involved -- that's a big if Kit, then innocent people could get hurt. Innocent people like, oh, say, my sister.

Jack: There was no way to know that Katie was going to be in her kitchen. Are you kidding me?

Margo: Exactly, my point. Where is Kit now?

Jack: Well, that's the $100,000 question, isn't it, Chief, since you called off the tail I had on her.

Margo: Well, I wasn't going to waste manpower on trailing a suspect that we have no credible evidence against. But let's just say that your theory does have some sort of merit. And you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to put Carly under 24 hour protection starting now --

Jack: No, no, don't do that.

Lily: Hi, Honey.

Faith: Hey. What happened to you two?

Luke: Oh, we're fine. You should see the other guys.

Faith: Did you get in a fight?

Luke: Uh, it's -- it's no big deal.

Noah: Looks worse than it is.

Holden: Actually, it is a big deal, and I think Faith should know about it.

Lily: Honey, Luke and Noah were beat up by some very prejudice boys who were giving Ameera a hard time.

Faith: Because you're not from here?

Ameera: Yes. But your brother and Noah were very brave. They defended me.

Holden: That's not the whole story.

Luke: Dad, I really don't think we need to go there.

Holden: I do. Luke and Noah were beaten up by some guys because they're gay.

Faith: They beat you up because you love one another?

Luke: Yeah, basically.

Faith: I hate them.

Holden: Well, we're going to make sure that the ones who did this are punished.

Margo: You are so messing me, Jack. First, you want the police involved when they shouldn't be. And now, I offer you help and you refuse.

Jack: I want Carly safe, but if there's a chance that we can catch Kit in the process, I don't want to scare her off. Let me protect Carly.

Margo: Oh, the way you protected Katie? All right, let's say this is all true, then you know what? I just can't afford another murder on my watch. How is Katie?

Susan: Uh, she'll have to take it easy and watch for signs of a concussion, but she'll be all right. Why don't you go on in?

Margo: Hi, hey, I came as soon as Jack called me. Are you all right? What's going on?

Katie: I'm all right.

Margo: What is he doing here?

Brad: How about a little sympathy? You know, I got conked in the head, too.

Margo: Somebody want to tell me what the hell is going on here today?

Lily: They're chatting in there like nothing happened.

Holden: We were right to explain it to Faith. And I'm glad that they're home. I'm glad that they're safe.

Lily: Um, maybe I want to change the subject, just for a second. At the hospital, I remembered something.

Holden: What's that?

Lily: A lot of things, but seeing you with Bonnie, I think she still has feelings for you.

Holden: I told you there was nothing going on between me and Bonnie.

Lily: That's because of me, I'm sorry.

Holden: Of course it's because of you. And there's nothing to be sorry about.

Lily: I just wondered if you regret letting her go.

Holden: What are you saying? If you want me to find someone else because you don't think that our marriage is going to work out, then just tell me.

Margo: Well, that is a coincidence that both of you were attacked and hit on the head at the same time, but I just can't really see how they could be connected. I'll look into it, at any rate. Nothing was taken from your office, your wallet, anything?

Brad: I'd have to check and see, but it doesn't look the place was robbed.

Susan: Your release papers are ready. Now, I want both of you to take it easy tonight, but don't go to sleep for eight hours or so, in case of a concussion. And don't forget to check in at the desk.

Margo: Okay, Toots, so, you're going to come home with me tonight, then, okay?

Katie: Oh, thank you, Margo, but I'm just going to go back to the Lakeview and relax. I will have the front desk call every hour, if that makes you feel better.

Margo: All right, all right, all right, I won't argue with you. I've got to get to the station and get your reports started. Um, somebody's coming to come over to WOAK and look around to see if there's anything suspicious. And, you, you call me every hour, okay?

Katie: I will, I promise.

Margo: Every half hour --

Katie: Thank you. I'm okay.

Brad: I'm sorry I was a jerk before. I'm glad that Jack was there to help you. And I'm really glad that you're okay.

Katie: And I'm really glad that you're so thick-headed.

Brad: Yeah, you've got to admit, it's kind of weird that, you know, we're both here at the same time. Maybe it's the universe trying to tell us something.

Katie: Yeah, trying to knock some sense into us for what we did before. I'm going to go get the release papers.

Brad: Wait. Just wait. Wait. Maybe I'm hard-headed, but I have a hard time -- I have a hard time believing that you're not feeling the same thing I am. We can't pretend that nothing happened.

Katie: Are you talking about getting knocked out?

Brad: Don't act like you've got amnesia. I'm talking about what made our heads spin earlier

Katie: Whoa -- sit down. Sit down. You okay?

Brad: You know, when I'm close to you, I can't help it --

Jack: Everything okay?

Katie: Yeah, no, it's good. Brad was just getting dizzy. He was going to fall, so I caught him.

Jack: You shouldn't be exerting yourself like that.

Bonnie: Should I get Susan back in here?

Katie: No, no, he wouldn't want to drag this out any longer, right?

Jack: Okay, well, you're free to go any time.

Katie: Okay, let's go.

Bonnie: Are you sure you're okay?

Brad: I'm fine, I just moving too fast, yeah.

Bonnie: Okay, you're all right?

Brad: Mm-hmm.

Noah: So, after what happened today, are you sure you want to stay in America?

Ameera: It was terrible. But there are bad people everywhere. I do want to stay in America, but I canít.

Faith: Why not?

Ameera: My visa expires soon and I'll have to go back.

Luke: But you have nothing to go back to.

Ameera: I have no choice. I thought the Colonel could help me, but he's in prison.

Noah: I'm not sure the Colonel would have had any answers.

Ameera: I just have to face the reality, I have to go back to Iraq whether I like it or not.

Matt: I'm sorry, you're right. Okay, I'm a jerk. I can't tell you what to do. But I feel like I'm making some headway with Alison here and I don't want to blow it by having her find out about my past.

Casey: Dude, you're an idiot. She already thinks something's up. Whatever she imagined is probably worse than the truth.

Matt: What could be worse than being an ex-con?

Casey: Okay, she told you about her past. What makes you think she's going to care? You know, she knows I was in jail and she's still my friend.

Matt: It's different, man. Everyone sees you as a good guy. They just think you messed up.

Casey: They would do the same for you.

Matt: Yeah, I wish I could believe that, Dude. My whole life, I've been a screw-up, okay? Even when I don't do anything wrong. That's just the way people look at me. It's been really nice, you know, getting the benefit of the doubt for a change. And now, I'm being treated like a regular guy.

Casey: Yeah, I know it's kind of hard coming back and feeling like you're an outsider. But you know, lying to everyone about how we met, it makes me feel cut off.

Matt: I swear, I'm going to tell Alison the truth, okay? As soon as the time is right. I'll tell everyone.

Margo: You'll tell everyone what?

Lily: I'm not hiding anything from you. I just know that I'm the one with the problem right now.

Holden: I told you, I can wait.

Lily: Can you? What kind of wife am I right now? I mean, why should you be punished for my hang-ups?

Holden: I didn't realize I was being punished.

Lily: No, not on purpose, you're not being punished. But if you don't wait to wait around for me anymore, I understand.

Carly: Hi.

Lily: Hi.

Carly: I'm sorry to interrupt, I just want to make sure Parker was okay.

Holden: Yeah, he's upstairs. I'll get him.

Carly: Oh, you look as bad as I feel.

Jack: Okay, why don't you go sit down, I'll get one of your cold compresses ready.

Katie: No, no, you don't have to.

Jack: I want to.

Katie: I really just need to rest alone.

Jack: No resting, Katie, or sleeping. You still have a concussion. Let me stay with you. I owe you that much.

Katie: Actually you owe me about a quarter million, but who's counting.

Jack: Yeah, right. I hate how much my problems have hurt you. I'll find a way to get you that money back --

Katie: Oh, stop it --

Jack: No, I will --

Katie: Stop. I was just kidding. I don't care about the money.

Jack: Well, I do. And I'm not going to forget about it.

Katie: Okay, you need to focus on Parker right now. I can take care of myself, I've gotten really good at it lately.

Jack: I'm sorry. I'm sorry you ever got dragged into this mess. And I bet you're sorry you ever gotten involved with me or my family.

Katie: I am anything but sorry.

Bonnie: I shouldn't have let you talk me into coming here. You shouldn't even be drinking, Brad.

Brad: I had some sense knocked into me. Um, another double scotch.

Bonnie: You're just upset about seeing Katie with Jack.

Brad: Katie and I are over. Come on, come on, come on, come on, Bonnie -- I've got to drink to my Florence Nightingale. I didn't get to thank you for coming to my rescue.

Bonnie: No, thank you. Brad, I can tell when a guy is hung up on a girl, and you've seriously got it bad for that girl.

Brad: Not for long.

Bonnie: Okay, look, I'm not interested in dating someone on the rebound.

Brad: Same here. I saw the way you were looking at Holden at the hospital.

Bonnie: Okay, that's totally different. That relationship never even got off the ground. Holden and Lily are meant to be together, nothing will ever change that and certainly not me.

Brad: Well, I thought the same about Jack and Carly, but they found other people.

Bonnie: Carly may have strayed, but she came back with a vengeance.

Brad: Yeah, Jack hasnít.

Bonnie: If you think Jack is your competition for Katie, I have one word of advice for you. Wait.

Katie: I love your family, Jack. That's the problem. I'm not sorry that I'm involved. I don't care about the money, and I'm glad I was hit instead of Parker.

Jack: Parker? What would you think someone was after Parker?

Katie: Because he told me that you and Carly didn't want him going to the house. That's why I went to pick the book for him. I figured you were worried that Kit was going to come after him.

Jack: No, she wasn't after Parker, she's after Carly.

Katie: Why would she be after Carly?

Jack: Well, because we were trying our best to provoke Kit -- to get her to make a move on Carly, so we could catch her in the act and get a confession out of her.

Katie: Wow. Sounds like you two are really working on this together.

Jack: Parker's our son. No one cares about him as much as we do. Certainly not Margo, or Tom, not even Brad or --

Katie: Or me?

Jack: Katie, I know you care about Parker.

Katie: But not as much as you and Carly.

Jack: Look, I'm sorry that you got hurt, especially because of my family problems.

Katie: It's okay. Your family comes first. I know that and I respect that.

Jack: Yeah, and I will do anything for them.

Katie: You know, my head is really starting to throb. Why don't you go check on Parker? Please make sure that he got the book that he needed, and tell him that I'm going to be fine and not to worry, because I know he's going to.

Jack: I still care about you, Katie. But maybe -- maybe it is selfish of me to want you in my life when all I do is hurt you.

Katie: Well, then, let's make a deal. From now on, I will stay away from you. I will stay as far away from you and your family as possible.

Holden: Parker will be down

Holden: Parker will be down in a minute.

Carly: Thanks. What is going on with you two?

Lily: Oh, Carly, come on, you've got enough going on right now, I don't worry you with my problems --

Carly: I want to think about something else for a change.

Lily: Okay, all right. Well, Holden and I are trying to work things out, but we've stalled and it's my fault.

Carly: How so?

Lily: I can't stop thinking about Dusty. And what happened -- I want to be with Holden, but I can't be with him as a wife -- you know what I mean?

Carly: You mean sex?

Lily: Uh, yeah.

Carly: Oh, Lily, you give yourself a break. You know, that's going to take time.

Lily: Dusty was one of my closest friends. And it was so awful, what happened with him. And I just can't seem to get past it. But I don't want to lose Holden.

Carly: You wonít. He will give you all the time you need. He loves you so much.

Lily: What if he can't wait?

Parker: Mom, why are you here? Whatever you and Dad were planning didn't work, did it?

Matt: You know, I really wanted to wait for the right time, but I guess now is good, right, case?

Casey: Sure. Go ahead.

Matt: I finally convinced Casey to go back to college. He's enrolling for classes this semester.

Margo: Ooh! That is -- that is -- why didn't you tell me? You'd know how happy I would be?

Casey: Uh, because I haven't really decided --

Matt: Until just now, actually --

Margo: Oh, you know, I just came in to see how you guys were doing. I get the best news in the world! Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, Matt.

Matt: I didn't do anything.

Casey: Oh, you've done a lot.

Margo: Oh, my God, I am so thankful. I'm so grateful. I'm so happy for you, and I'm so late. I've got to get going, but I'll see you guys at home. Yes!

Casey: Okay, bye-bye. That was really low, man.

Matt: Come on, it's not a big deal. You can just tell her you changed your mind.

Casey: No, you don't know my mom. She's actually going to expect me to go through with this.

Matt: Dude, I forgot to tell Alison something. Can you just cover me? I'll be right back --

Casey: Wait, where you Ė

Luke: There must be something we can do.

Noah: Maybe we could find an immigration lawyer that can help.

Faith: I know how you can stay. I went online and found out you can get a study visa to go to school here.

Luke: Oh, thanks, Faithy, but I don't think it's that easy.

Luke: It's a really good idea, but when you're enrolled in college, it takes a lot of requirements.

Ameera: He's right. I don't have my records or any way to get them. And how would I pay for tuition?

Holden: Well, there might be a way around that. Lucinda's on the board of Oakdale U. Maybe she can put in a good word. See if they can bend the rules.

Luke: Grandmother can be very persuasive.

Holden: Especially with a well-timed contribution.

Ameera: I'm afraid to even get my hopes up.

Lily: We'll catch up later.

Carly: Yeah.

Lily: Okay?

Carly: I just wanted to make sure you were all right.

Parker: Could you please tell me what happened?

Carly: Someone hit Katie when she went to get your book, but she's all right.

Parker: Well, can I go see her?

Carly: No, no, Jack is with her now. And we both think you're safer here.

Parker: Yeah, well, now other people are getting hurt because of me -- someone's outside.

Carly: Did you hear something?

Parker: No, no, I just had a feeling --

Carly: No, no, no, you're not going out there. You get back inside.

Parker: Let me go and check --

Carly: Go inside! Who's there?

Carly: Is anybody there?

Jack: Hey.

Carly: Oh!

Jack: Oh.

Carly: Jack! You almost gave me a heart attack.

Jack: Where's Parker?

Carly: He's inside. He thought he heard somebody out here, it must have been you.

Jack: No, I was -- hey. No, I was just checking around the house, making sure everything's secure. Here's that book you wanted.

Parker: Is Katie okay?

Jack: Yeah, she's fine, she's fine. She sends her love. She doesn't want you to worry.

Parker: Yeah, well, everyone keeps saying that, but it doesn't help.

Carly: I'm sorry Katie got hurt. I know Kit was after me. Parker is safe here. If you want to be with Katie, that's fine, go --

Jack: Katie's better off without me. Besides, if our plan is working, I need to stick close by. If Kit's coming after you, I'm not letting you out of my sight.

Bonnie: Katie won't want to be alone forever. All you have to do is be patient, Brad.

Brad: I've tried that. I'm tired of being the consolation prize.

Bonnie: Well, so am I. Look, look, I'll tell you what, Brad, you have my number. So if you want to call me for something more than, oh, bail or a ride to the hospital, do it. Call me.

Brad: Bonnie, Bonnie, you know what? I owe you a real date.

Bonnie: I'm ready when you are, just not until you're over Katie.

Lily: I am so proud of you, Faith. Yes, of course, Grandmother can pull some strings, I'm sure make some calls and we can make a huge donation to Oakdale U.

Ameera: I don't know how to thank you.

Lily: I'm just sorry that you've been through all this trauma.

Luke: Mom, you're the best and you, too, Dad. And you, too, Faith. And you know what? How about we take Ameera on a hay ride?

Faith: Yeah!

Lily: Oh, that's fun.

Luke: Come on.

Lily: Be careful. Stay warm.

Luke: Thank you.

Holden: See ya.

Lily: Wow. What a day.

Holden: What a day. You know, we can't protect them from all the bad stuff in the world, but at least we can be there for them when things do happen. And how about Faith helping out Ameera? All the family working together, it's got to be a good thing, right?

Lily: It is. But what about us? I mean, seriously, Holden, am I -- am I enough for you?

Holden: Do I want us closer? Yes. But if you need more time, I can deal with that.

Lily: I don't how I could have gotten through this without you.

Susan: Oh.

Alison: Hey.

Susan: Haven't seen much of you around today.

Alison: Oh, I've been spending most of my breaks with Matt, or searching for him.

Susan: I hope you're not going too fast with that guy.

Alison: Don't worry, Mom. I'm being careful. Maybe even to the point of paranoid.

Susan: It must run in the family because if I didn't know better, I would think that half my patients today were pulling some sort of publicity stunt. What are the odds of both of Oakdale Now's co-hosts showing up here with the same head injury from unrelated incidents?

Alison: Brad and Katie?

Susan: Yeah, Brad was knocked out over at WOAK and Katie was --

Alison: Brad was attacked at WOAK?

Susan: Yeah.

Alison: Do they know who did it?

Susan: The police don't have a clue. Brad didn't see it coming. And when he woke up, the guy was gone. I think I better get back to work.

Alison: Okay. Matt, what are you doing here? Casey's going to get so mad if you ditch him at work again.

Matt: Casey's cool. You left before I got a chance to ask you something important.

Alison: No, I don't know how to get paint off pants.

Matt: That's very funny. Because they were ruined. And these are another bartenderís.

Alison: Do you know where that paint came from?

Matt: Can I please ask you this question?

Alison: Sorry, I'm listening.

Matt: Will you go out with me again? This time, after dark?

Alison: I don't know. Can I trust you?

Matt: Yeah, definitely.

Alison: Okay, then -- call me.

Matt: I will. I will. I got to get back to work, but I'll see you around. And I have your number.

[Knock on the door]

Katie: Who is it?

Brad: It's your hospital roomie. I just wanted to see how you were doing.

Katie: I'm fine, but I'm already undressed and in bed.

Brad: Sounds dangerous.

Katie: Don't start.

Brad: No, I mean, aren't we supposed to be on concussion watch? Maybe you could let me in, I promise I wouldn't -- I wouldn't let you go to sleep.

Katie: That won't be necessary.

Brad: Why are you so hard-headed?

Katie: One of us has to be.

Brad: Come on, let me in. We'll just -- we'll talk.

Katie: I'm not going to let you in.

Brad: Don't you think it's kind of weird that we both got knocked out? Like it was a sign or something?

Katie: I think it was a coincidence. I'll see you tomorrow.

Brad: Okay. I'll see you then.

Carly: You really think Kit is going to come back for me?

Jack: If she does, Carly, she's not going to want to come back a third time. And that may be our only chance to nail her.

Carly: I'll be ready for her.

Jack: Hey, I'm not going to let anything happen to you.

[Doorbell rings]

Margo: I placed a unit outside. I don't want any more surprise attacks.

Jack: Why did you do that? I told you, I've got it covered.

Margo: Jack, it's not your call. You're not on the force anymore, so please don't interfere with police procedure, and consider this your final warning.

Carly: Kit is never going to show with cops outside the door, Jack.

Jack: I know, Carly. This is not good.

Carly: Parker's right, you know. We keep telling him that we're going to help him, and then whenever we try, we fail. I've never felt so helpless in my entire life, Jack. What if we lose our son?

On the next "As the World Turns."

Brad: He's a mess. This whole thing with Vienna, it's a terrible situation. We have to find a way to fix it.

Vienna: Henry's flown the coop.

Alison: Did you meet Matt in prison?

Casey: Yes.

Paul: I'm checking myself out today.

Chris: Not on my watch.

Meg: I got a job with a private nurse service.

Emma: Oh, you should have no problem with that.

Meg: It's not the injuries, Mama, it's Paul.
