Paul: And of course my mother will only drink bottled spring water, so we had a cooler moved in on that floor. And if you have any other questions, there's a whole staff here that should be able to help you out.

Nurse: I think we can make Mrs. Ryan very comfortable here, sir.

Paul: Well, that's what we want. Thanks.

Sofie: She's a good nurse.

Paul: Oh, really? That's -- that's your professional opinion?

Sofie: Okay, don't you start laughing at me. I've learned a lot about hospitals in the past month. I know a good nurse when I see one.

Paul: Right. Well, thank you for helping her get home.

Sofie: Oh, you're welcome. I really think it's a great thing that you're doing for your mom.

Paul: Yeah, well, you would expect that a son would take care of his mom, right?

Sofie: Yes --

Paul: But you wouldn't expect that out of the Paul Ryan that Chris Hughes told you all about --

Sofie: That's not what I meant --

Paul: It's okay. I can explain, Sofie. Truthfully, a year ago, none of this would have been possible. I was angry and -- bitter, and full of rage.

Sofie: And what happened to make you change? Wait, actually, I think I know. Meg.

Mike: Anybody home?

Meg: Hey, Mike -- come on in. Um, Mama's away, if you need any answers on the property.

Mike: Oh, no, thanks. I just brought a crew by to do a survey. We're also going to be doing some drilling.

Meg: For oil?

Mike: Don't you wish. No, we're taking core samples of the soil to see what we'll be building on.

Meg: Do you need anything?

Mike: No. Just want to let you know we'll be making some noise.

Meg: Mike, hey -- um, are you okay?

Mike: Yeah. Why?

Meg: You seem a little down. Nothing to do with the project, I hope?

Mike: No. Everything's fine. It's -- its personal stuff. I didn't think it showed.

Meg: Should I ask? Katie, right?

Mike: I just -- I can't believe she's getting married.

Meg: Mike, you've been away for a long time. I mean, are you really surprised that she found somebody else?

Mike: I guess not. The only surprise is how much it bothers me.

Margo: Yeah, I need the O’Connell case file sent over. Now! Thank you. Hey, Katie, how did you find me?

Katie: I called the station. They said you were working.

Margo: Oh, that made it easy. What's up? What do you want?

Katie: Well, I know you had issues with me marrying Brad -- even though you went to all the trouble to throw us that amazing engagement party.

Margo: And I did that because I wanted you to know that I support you no matter what you choose.

Katie: Good. Because things are happening a lot faster than we originally thought.

Margo: Oh, really, you set a date? When?

Katie: Um, right away.

Margo: You're -- you're eloping?

Katie: No, no. We want to have a nice little wedding with all of our closest family and friends. But I can't do it if I don't have your help.

[Knock on the door]

Henry: I'm coming, I'm coming! Oh, it's you. I thought it was a police raid. Why are you battering down my door?

Brad: Okay, it's a done deal. It's a done deal, Henry. We set a date.

Henry: Well, that's great. You know, I had my worries.

Brad: Was there any doubt, my man?

Henry: The spine, the ribs, the buttocks -- the punctured lung --

Brad: Okay. Serious question.

Henry: Yeah?

Brad: Will you be my best man?

Henry: My what?

Brad: My best man.

Henry: Brad, that's -- wait a second, what about -- what about Jack? I mean, isn't it traditional to have the brother be the best man?

Brad: Henry, my brother is the recently annulled husband of my bride.

Henry: That's a good point. That is all sort of enmeshed, isn't it? Well, if Jack is out of the running, then I would be honored. No more hugs -- no more hugs, okay --

Brad: I'm sorry, I'm just -- I'm happy. I just -- I'm happy.

Henry: Yeah, great. When is the big day?

Brad: As soon as Katie gets a dress and we can find someone to perform the ceremony.

Henry: That's -- right, no long engagements for you. Not with Mike Kasnoff in town. You need to make her Mrs. Brad Snyder immediately, if not sooner.

Katie: So, are you going to help me or not?

Margo: Uh -- yeah, I'll help you. I'll help you. I'll give you a piece of friendly advice. Um, don't rush into this wedding. Especially now.

Katie: What does that mean, especially now?

Margo: Especially now that Mike is back in town. You should talk to Mike before you go rushing down the aisle, again.

Katie: I did talk to Mike. And he and I agreed that we need to move on.

Margo: Okay, so Mike comes back to town. You want to marry Brad yesterday and you want everyone to think that that's a coincidence?

Katie: I don't care what everyone thinks.

Margo: Ooh --

Katie: I care what Brad thinks and I care what I think. And Brad and I think that we don't want to wait. I'm getting married one way or the other, and I would love for you to be my matron of honor, but I can make other plans if that's what you want. So, will you do it or not?

Brad: Mike Kasnoff has got nothing to do with this. And Margo hadn't stopped us from eloping, Katie and I would already be married.

Henry: That -- that might have been better.

Brad: No, no, no -- she wants to have a ceremony with all of our friends and family there to support her. Mike has gotten nothing to say about this. We're getting married, and she's going to have the perfect day she always dreamed of. Now, are you down with that or not?

Henry: Perfect day for Katie? I'm definitely down with that.

Brad: Who are you calling?

Henry: I'm calling my tailor. If we're going to have a perfect wedding, we're going to need tuxes, and soon. Okay.

Margo: I would never stand in the way of your happiness. But I am your big sister and I will worry.

Katie: Well, stop worrying. Brad and I really are good together. I promise you. It's taken me a long time to get to this place and please, please, please just support me. Be happy for me. Please!

Margo: Poof, I'm happy!

Katie: Okay, yeah -- will you help me get a dress?

Margo: Okay, let's go.

Katie: That was easy. Stop!

Margo: What?

Katie: Thank you.

Margo: You're welcome. I really hope you know what you're doing.

Meg: Mike, I am so sorry. I mean -- I've been there. Hell, I'm still there. Why is it so hard to let go of people?

Mike: Maybe it's because deep down we know letting go of them would be a mistake.

Meg: I guess with certain people -- like Paul is for me, or Katie is for you -- you don't really get over them. Yeah, your feelings might be abused or damaged, but the love doesn't really go away.

Mike: Even after you've messed it all up.

Meg: My trouble is that one day I see a future with Paul and it's beautiful. And then the next, I think I must be some kind of masochist to think of getting involved again. I can't seem to make a decision and stick with it.

Mike: Well, if I'm going to make a decision, I don't have much time. Katie's getting married soon. Do I move on like Katie says she has, or do I do something about the way I feel?

Sofie: I envy Meg.

Paul: Why?

Sofie: She made a real difference in your life. She helps you be a better man. And I tried that with Cole and it was a disaster.

Paul: Well, maybe there wasn't any good in Cole to bring out. I'm sure if you meet the right guy, you can work wonders.

Sofie: I hope so. [Cell phone rings] Sorry. Aaron, hi.

Aaron: Hey, I just heard you called in sick. What's wrong?

Sofie: Nothing. Nothing -- I'm not really sick. I've just been helping Paul move his mom into Fairwinds.

Aaron: Okay, well, um -- I'm glad you're all right. Do you need any help?

Sofie: No, no, that's okay. I think Paul and I got it covered. Thank you, though, for calling to check in on me. Um, bye, Aaron.

Meg: Well, it doesn't look like you're going to let Katie go.

Mike: No. Not any time soon, anyway.

Meg: Okay, so how do you plan on changing her mind?

Mike: Damned if I know. If you have any ideas, don't keep them to yourself. In the meantime, thanks for the coffee and the sympathy. I'm going to get back to work.

Meg: Okay.

Aaron: What's up, Mike?

Mike: Hey.

Meg: Aaron, hey.

Aaron: Hey.

Meg: Okay, first Mike, and now you. Um, is something wrong?

Aaron: Nothing.

Meg: Yeah, right. What's up?

Aaron: It's Sofie. She's with Paul at Fairwinds.

Meg: Really? What's that all about?

Aaron: Probably nothing. She said she was there because she wanted to help Barbara move in. But --

Meg: But?

Aaron: I kind of got the feeling like she was blowing me off for Paul. I mean, you know Paul Ryan a hell of a lot more than I do. I mean, is there something going on here that I should be worried about?

Meg: I know there is one sure way to find out.

Paul: Well, I think my mom's got a great attitude. I just hope she can keep it up.

Sofie: She will. She's going to get better so much faster here, Paul.

[Phone rings]

Paul: Hello?

Meg: Hey, it's Meg. I hear you brought your mother home to recuperate. How's that going?

Paul: Oh, so far, so good. She's got full-time care. She's -- she seems settled in.

Meg: Did you have any trouble getting her home?

Paul: No, it’s no big deal. Sofie helped out. You know my mom, she's very particular. But we're getting everything squared away.

Meg: Well, I hope you're not too tired for lunch out on the farm.

Paul: With you? Never.

Meg: I am so glad to hear you say that. Oh, and of course, I want you to bring Sofie.

Paul: We're on our way.

Meg: Well, guess who's coming to lunch?

Margo: Lisa, Katie needs a wedding dress.

Lisa: Well, congratulations. Who's the lucky fellow?

Katie: Brad Snyder.

Lisa: Brad?

Katie: I'm looking for something very chic this time --

Margo: Do you have anything in black?

Katie: Margo, I -- I need it to be a perfect fit also because it's -- I don't have any time for alterations.

Lisa: Oh, well, uh, why the big rush, darling?

Katie: No rush. No, Brad and I just -- we've been wanting to get married for quite some time and we don't see any need to wait.

Lisa: Okay -- uh, how about this one, huh?

Katie: Um --

Lisa: Yes, come on, come on, come on --

Katie: Well, that's not exactly --

Lisa: It's more beautiful on than it is on the hanger. Come along, Girls. Rush, rush, rush. Come on, come on --

Margo: All right --

Lisa: Yes --

[Cell phone rings]

Mike: Hello?

Lisa: Mike, its Lisa.

Mike: Hi, Lisa. How are you doing?

Lisa: Uh, well, not -- not doing very well. Listen, I -- I need to ask a favor of you. I have just discovered that I have some -- well, they're bugs -- termites -- they're termites and they're here at Fashions and could you have a look?

Mike: Well, I'm at the Snyder farm right now, but I could come down later today.

Lisa: No, no, no -- that won't do, Mike. My customers can't see them -- you can't imagine the business I would lose if they did.

Mike: Okay, Lisa, we can't have that. I'll be down as soon as I can.

Lisa: Oh -- Katie, today is your lucky day. Wait until you see what I've got for you.

Henry: You understand, Signore? We need the tuxedos soon. Quick. Pronto.

Tailor: Your friend is a huge.

Brad: A huge? What's a huge?

Henry: It's Italian for grande.

Brad: Oh! Oh, what -- come --

Tailor: Why did he jump like that?

Henry: He's -- he's just ticklish. Brad, look, he's just trying to measure the inseam of your trousers. Okay, it's nothing personal. Don't get worried.

Brad: Henry, it felt personal.

Henry: Brad, you're getting married. Now be a man and let the tailor measure your inseam.

Lisa: Uh, here.

Margo: Oh, look, Katie. More.

Katie: I'm sorry, Lisa. None of these are working. I just -- I guess I just don't have time to do this right now. I've got to get back to the station --

Margo: Yeah -- I've got to get back to work, too --

Lisa: No -- now, wait just a minute. Katie, you must make time to do this because we're talking about your wedding, Sweetheart, and that is not a decision you want to rush into.

Mike: I have to run into town. I just got a call from Lisa. She has termites and she's all bent out of shape.

Meg: So why is she calling you when she should be calling an exterminator?

Mike: Uh, don't worry about it, I'll be back soon. In the meantime, the crew is going to keep working.

Meg: Okay. See you later.

Paul: Hey, Mike. You sure are spending an awful lot of time here at the farm.

Mike: All in the line of duty. Hi, I'm Mike Kasnoff.

Sofie: Sofie. Sofie Duran.

Mike: Well, I'll see you later, Paul. Nice to meet you, Sofie.

Lisa: Oh, come on, Mike!

Lisa: Now, where's the wedding going to be?

Katie: Uh, we haven't quite nailed that down yet.

Margo: I thought you had it all worked out?

Lisa: Honey, you can always postpone it to a later date.

Katie: No. No, if Brad and I can produce an hour television show every day, we can plan a wedding.

Meg: Well, Sofie, thank you for coming.

Sofie: Well, thank you for inviting me, Meg.

Meg: Yeah, any friend of Paul's is welcome here at the Snyder farm.

Sofie: Hey, Aaron, I didn't expect -- did you invite me? Was it your idea?

Aaron: Oh, don't look at me. No -- I didn't set this up.

Meg: He's telling the truth. It was all my idea. Oh, we're babysitting Aaron's little brother, Ethan. Aaron, would you mind going -- taking and bringing him in here?

Aaron: Yeah, I'll go get him. Sofie, do you want to come with me? Ethan's got a soft spot for pretty girls --

Sofie: No -- I don't -- I don't think --

Meg: Go on. Really.

Sofie: Okay, okay --

Paul: You know, you're not fooling anybody. I know exactly what you're up to.

Margo: It's uglier than the first one --

Lisa: You're absolutely right. It's hideous. Take it off. I don't know what's wrong with me today. I just don't -- I just don't seem to be picking any winners whatsoever.

Margo: Lisa, you usually have such a good eye when it comes to what looks good on people.

Lisa: I know, I know -- I guess everybody has an off day. This obviously is mine, but we'll just keep on looking. Now, wait a minute. You know I'm bound to find something. We're bound to hit the jackpot, right? We just have to keep on --

[Coughs]

Margo: Lisa, are you all right?

Lisa: No --

Margo: Lisa?

Lisa: Uh, water.

Margo: Water -- where do I get --

Lisa: Out -- out --

Margo: Out?

Lisa: Bottled water.

Katie: There's a market -- get the market across the street --

Margo: All right, I'll be right back.

Meg: And what is it you think I'm doing, Paul?

Paul: I think that you engineered this whole cold chicken thing, so that you can push Aaron and Sofie together.

Meg: There wasn't much engineering involved.

Paul: You know what I mean.

Meg: Okay, fine, what if it's true? I mean, they're both young and unattached. It seemed like a natural match to me.

Paul: I don't think you should get involved in this.

Meg: Why not? You're involved, aren't you?

Paul: No. I'm just helping Sofie out. She's going through a rough time right now. That's all.

Meg: And I'm helping out my nephew. How does that make me more involved than you are?

[Ethan crying]

Aaron: He got bigger last time I saw him.

Meg: You just saw him this morning.

Aaron: Well, in that case, he's going to be a fullback pretty soon. Sofie, do you want to hold him a second?

Sofie: No -- no.

Aaron: What's wrong -- no?

Sofie: No, I'm sorry.

Aaron: Paul, can you hold him for a second?

Paul: Hey, hey --

Aaron: Sofie!

Paul: What's the matter?

Aaron: Sofie!

Paul: Here -- you know what? You can stand on Emma’s counter.

Lisa: Well, now we're talking. I think this is going to be the one.

Katie: I hope so. Is that another customer?

Lisa: Uh -- well, we'll just have to see, won't we? I'll go find out.

Brad: Henry, thank you so much for the tuxedo.

Henry: Hey, Brad, to introduce you to a life of sophistication and elegance, it's what I live for.

Brad: No, I'm serious. You know, I really want to look good -- for Katie. And you know, I just -- it's just good that I can count on you. You're a really -- you're a good friend.

Henry: Okay, okay, you're welcome. I had enough of this manly sincerity. Have a seat. Have something to eat. It's on me.

Brad: I wonder if Katie picked out a dress yet.

Henry: Please, please, please -- these are women's mysteries. They're best left alone. Don't even think about it.

Brad: No, no, no, no -- I have to think about it. Because when she does, that means we tie the knot.

Henry: No --

Brad: I'm going to go see if --

Henry: No, Brad -- no, no. Brad, no, no! What are you insane, man? It is bad luck to see the bride --

Brad: Oh, get real -- it's the 21st century -- okay, we don't need luck. This wedding is a go. It's going to happen. It's going to happen.

Mike: So where did you see the termites? Point me in the direction.

Lisa: One of the dressing rooms. I don't remember which one. But --

Mike: Is anyone in there?

Katie: We were so right. This is definitely the --

Mike: Hello, Angel. You sure do look beautiful.

Paul: I'm a little worried about Sofie. You know, maybe I should find her. Make sure she's okay.

Meg: You know, I'm sure Aaron can handle it. He won't let anything happen to her.

Paul: Yeah, but I should at least call her, don't you think?

Meg: You know, what happened to not getting involved? I think Aaron should take care of it and we should stay out of it.

Paul: Okay, you're right.

Meg: Well, I'm just telling you what a wise man told me about ten minutes ago.

Paul: So does this mean I don't get any cold chicken?

Meg: I think we should go wake up Ethan and take him out for a walk, just in case Aaron brings Sofie back here to the house.

Paul: A walk? Do you mind if I tag along?

Meg: I thought you'd never ask.

Aaron: Hey, Sofie! Sofie, Sofie! Hey, I'm sorry. Hey, I'm so sorry --

Sofie: No, no, no --

Aaron: I'm sorry --

Sofie: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I didn't -- I feel terrible. I didn't want to make a scene like that. I couldn't help it.

Aaron: Listen, I didn't think holding Ethan would freak you out like that.

Sofie: Well, it's just -- I can't be around any baby right now. It's -- it's too hard.

Aaron: Okay, listen, I won't pressure you, okay? Just tell me what I can do to help.

Sofie: You want to help? Just -- let me go back to Fairwinds. Let me take care of Barbara. Leave me alone. Let me do some good for somebody.

Aaron: I'm sorry, Sofie, okay, but you're asking me to do the one thing I won't do.

Henry: Oh! Oh, look what you made me do. It's all over the place -- it's a disaster!

Vienna: Oh, what are you getting so upset about? It's just a little bit of salt.

Henry: What -- no, no, no --

Vienna: We'll just get a broom --

Henry: No, no, no, no broom. No broom. Just step back, okay?

Vienna: Henry, what has gotten into you? Are you okay?

Henry: I'm fine -- I'm fine. I just -- I just need to get a pinch here.

Vienna: Oh, a little bit of pinch right there?

Henry: No -- nothing like that, Sweetie. Sweetie -- a pinch of salt. Okay. Was that the right shoulder though -- maybe it's the left shoulder. I can't remember what it's supposed to be.

Vienna: Okay -- have you been drinking? Because you promised me no martinis this early in the morning.

Henry: No, I'm as sober as a judge. I'm as sober as the Supreme Court. I just -- I know a bad omen when I see one, all right?

Vienna: Oh, Dear, and I thought my language was getting way better.

Henry: Your language, your English, everything is fine. I'm talking about cultural tradition here. Now, when you spill salt, you're supposed to take a little pinch. You toss it over your shoulder or there will be hell to pay. It's bad luck. Do you understand bad luck?

Vienna: Yes --

Henry: What --

Vienna: I just didn't know you were this superstitious.

Henry: Some things you don't question, my darling, okay? Like Brad -- he went to see Katie -- there was a 60/40 chance that he would have seen her in the wedding dress. That is the worst bad luck you can possibly have. Now, you add some spilled salt to that, and you're a dead duck, my friend.

Vienna: No way! It's bad for him to see her in the wedding dress before the wedding?

Henry: Oh, good God, Woman. Do you know nothing?

Vienna: All I know is that is some silly wedding dress have no power over the happiness between Katie and Brad. They are going to have a wonderful life together.

Henry: Yeah, how do you know this?

Vienna: Because I know Brad and I know Katie and I know that they're meant for each other. Just like you and me.

Henry: You're very persuasive.

Vienna: Do you remember when you bet me that Katie wouldn't accept his proposal? Well, who was right and who was wrong?

Henry: Well, I was wrong. It turned out to be one of the best nights I ever had in my life.

Vienna: Well, would you like another night like that? Promise me that you will stop worrying. They're going to be just fine.

Mike: You take my breath away, Katie. You always did.

Katie: What are you doing here?

Mike: Lisa called and asked me to come. She said she had termites. Wait a minute, where'd she go?

Katie: I have no idea. But she sure was in a hurry to get out of here and leave us alone.

Mike: I think somebody wanted me to see you. Well, it worked. I am -- I am blown away. All I can do is think about the day we got --

Katie: No, no, don't! Don't even go there!

Lisa: Oh, Margo, good. Thank you so much.

Margo: I thought you couldn't leave the store.

Lisa: Well, I can't -- I can't, I -- well, I got sick and tired of waiting for you. And here -- open that, please.

Margo: You're not coughing anymore.

Lisa: No -- oh, comes and goes. Comes and goes --

Margo: Oh, good. So you're better? All right -- I think we should get back to the store then --

Lisa: No, wait, wait. Margo, please -- I don't want to do that. Not just yet --

Margo: Well, then fine, you stay. I -- I need to go and make sure that Katie picks out her dress.

Lisa: You wait.

Margo: What is the matter with you?

Lisa: I had the most horrible night last night. I've had these terrible nightmares. You know, I dreamt I was in this little bitty dollhouse. No doors whatsoever -- and at the end, this big giant lobster was --

Margo: Hey, is that Mike Kasnoff?

Lisa: Oh, gosh, I don't know. Is it?

Margo: How could you do such a thing, Lisa? And don't play innocent, because you're not very good at it.

Mike: You were my bride, Katie. And not all that long ago -- do you think I can just forget about that?

Margo: Mike! What you -- what are you doing here?

Mike: I think you should ask Lisa that one.

Lisa: Uh, well, I -- I called Mike because you see I have termites. And you can't let those little critters get out of hand.

Margo: You're the only little critter that is getting out of hand.

Katie: Lisa, what did you think was going to happen? No, no, this can't happen. No -- Brad, you cannot see me in my wedding dress --

Brad: Okay, okay --

Katie: You'll ruin everything!

Lisa: Don't you know that it is very bad luck to see the bride in her wedding gown --

Brad: I heard that. I heard that, but if there's bad luck here, it's got nothing to do with the dress!

Katie: What is wrong with me? What am I doing?

Meg: You know, you have a very interesting idea of what constitutes a walk, Paul.

Paul: Uh, this is my interesting idea of what constitutes lunch, which was something you promised me and didn't give to me --

Meg: Yeah -- well, look at him going.

Paul: He's a little restless -- maybe we could let him out of the high chair?

Meg: Well, you know, ever since he started walking, he just can't sit still.

Ethan: Mommy --

Meg: Yeah --

Paul: Oh, Mommy's not here, Sweetpea. Here, do you want the ball? Can we take him out?

Meg: Sure --

Paul: It looks like the big lunch push is over. There's nobody here.

Meg: Good idea. Freedom it is. Oh, come here. There you go. All right.

Aaron: Taking care of Barbara Ryan is just an excuse.

Sofie: What's wrong with wanting to help somebody?

Aaron: Nothing's wrong, as long as you're not using it as a way to hide from life.

Sofie: Hiding from life sounds pretty good right now.

Aaron: Of course it does. You're hurting and you want it to stop.

Sofie: Is that so hard to understand?

Aaron: No, I understand that, okay. But it's not the answer. You can lock yourself away at Fairwinds, okay. But the pain is just going to be waiting there when you get out. Okay, you have to just face the music. Live through it and then just let it go. Come on, let's go home.

Sofie: No, I can't -- I can't face Meg and Paul after I ran out like that --

Aaron: Meg and Paul aren't judging you. Can you please trust me? Let me help you. Come on.

Sofie: Okay. I'll try.

Paul: It's nice to see you having fun.

Meg: Well, what's more fun than taking the baby on an outing on a beautiful day? Ethan?

Paul: He's over there.

Meg: Ethan?

Paul: He's --

Meg: Oh, my God, where is he? Ethan!

Paul: Ethan?

Meg: Ethan!

Paul: Uh, excuse me, hi. Have you seen a little boy walking around?

Meg: Uh, yeah -- he's a toddler. Two years old.

Clerk: I haven't seen any children, Ma'am.

Meg: Call the police. What if somebody -- [Elevator alarm rings] We have to find him -- we have to find him.

Paul: We'll find him.

Clerk: Sir, I think I found your son.

Paul: Well, he's not my son, but --

Clerk: I think he's between floors one and two.

Meg: Oh my God! He's all alone.

Paul: He's tall enough to push the stop button.

Meg: So, he's stuck on that elevator -- we have to do something. Paul, you've got to do something.

Paul: Okay.

Mike: I'm sorry if I've caused any trouble. I had no idea Katie was here.

Lisa: No, it's really my fault. I called Mike. I'm to blame.

Brad: I'm not blaming anyone. I just hate to see my fiancé upset.

Mike: Me, too. I'll get out of your way. Congratulations. You -- have a beautiful bride.

Brad: I know it.

Margo: Wait, wait, wait, wait --

Brad: What now?

Margo: I just -- let me talk to Katie for a minute first. I don't want you to see her in her wedding dress. We don't want any more bad luck, do we, Lisa? So, you're -- you're not crying because Brad saw you in the dress, are you?

Katie: No.

Margo: What is it?

Katie: Mike just called me --

Margo: What --

Katie: Nothing, no -- it's -- it's silly. It doesn't mean anything.

Margo: I think it probably does mean something. What did he say?

Katie: He called me Angel. It was like a little pet name. He just said it to me now --

Margo: And what?

Katie: Nothing. It just -- pushed a button.

Margo: What does that tell you, Honey?

Katie: Not a damn thing, Margo. Please don't start.

Margo: Don't start? Don't lie to yourself. You still have a thing for Mike Kasnoff. Why don't you take it as a sign?

Katie: No, what -- what sign? My ex-husband just called me Angel and it made me sad. Why wouldn't it? It reminded me of a terrible time. A time that I failed another marriage and it was my fault. But I have a chance now to make it up. I have a chance to be with Brad and have a wonderful marriage. Thank God. And so I'm going to -- wipe away my tears, consider myself a lucky woman and marry Brad Snyder. And I'm going to be happy.

Margo: You sure?

Katie: Positive.

Margo: Okay, then let's get this wedding started. You can even have it my house, huh?

Katie: Oh, Margo, really? That means so much! I have to hug you again! Okay, go out there and you tell Lisa to fire up that register because I've found my wedding dress.

Meg: When will the fire department get here?

Clerk: They said right away.

Meg: We can't wait that long. I mean, that baby is stuck on the elevator. We need to do something.

Paul: Okay, come here. Come here. Hey, I'm not going to let anything bad happen to Ethan. I promise you. Stay here. Call 911 again, all right?

Meg: Okay --

Paul: I'll be right back.

Meg: Oh, thank God, you're here. The baby's stuck on the elevator.

Fireman #1: Just stay calm and don't worry, we'll get him out.

Fireman #2: You said the car was stuck between floors?

Meg: Yeah, yeah, look. Oh, my God, Paul?

Aaron: Anybody home? Meg? What's this? Dear Aaron and Sofie, Paul and I have taken the baby for a walk. If you're hungry, there's plenty to eat in the fridge. Meg. You see? You had nothing to worry about after all. No music to face.

Sofie: Okay, okay, you're teasing me, but I'm relieved. I was embarrassed.

Aaron: Okay, well, now you can relax. You hungry? Because I am starving. Oh, here's something real special.

Sofie: What is that?

Aaron: This is Grandma's fried chicken. Hot or cold, it's the best thing you've ever tasted.

Sofie: Well, it does look great and I am hungry.

Aaron: Well, you know what makes fried chicken taste even better? Since it's so beautiful outside, I think we should have a little picnic.

Sofie: That sounds fun.

Aaron: Yeah. And you know what? Fun is what we're going to try to remember to have from now on.

Meg: Hey --

Paul: Hey, look, its Auntie Meg.

Meg: Oh, Ethan, oh, my God -- oh, Paul, thank you so much.

Ethan: Mommy --

Meg: Oh, little devil, he gave me the worst scare of my life.

Fireman #2: How did you get to him?

Paul: I went to the second story and then I pried open the doors, hopped on to the top of the car.

Fireman #1: That was pretty dangerous.

Fireman #2: You should've waited for us.

Meg: We didn't know how long it would take for you to get here. Don't listen to them. I think you're great, Paul. Yeah, it's okay.

Paul: She's prejudiced. Listen, thanks for coming.

Fireman #2: Hey, good job.

Paul: Thank you.

Fireman #1: Next time, just wait for the pros.

Paul: All right, I'll do that.

Meg: They were just jealous. I don't know what would have happened if you didn't -- thank you.

Aaron: No --

Sofie: I'm sorry. That is such bad manners.

Aaron: Are you kidding? Grandma gets hurt if you don't lick your fingers.

Sofie: It is so beautiful here. So peaceful. I could get used to this.

Aaron: Well, you know, I've got pretty solid connections with the management here. I could make that happen for you.

Brad: So, how is she doing?

Margo: She's fine. She's fine. Lisa, we're going to take that last dress.

Brad: What did she say? I mean, is she mad at me for coming in here?

Margo: No, not at all.

Brad: Then why is she still hiding in the dressing room?

Margo: Because um -- women are very emotional before they get married. So, you know, you have to make allowances.

Brad: I can do that.

Margo: Okay. And she's going to be all right, really, she is. She'll be out in a minute. And in the meantime, Lisa, you and I are going to take a little sit on the bench and we're going to talk about nightmares. That was so mean, what you did to Katie.

Lisa: No, I saw these bugs --

Margo: Oh, you did not! Come on, you think I can't see through that?

Lisa: Okay. Okay. Look, I was just really trying to help Katie. Mike is back. Katie has suddenly gone from zero to I do within ten seconds. Now, something's wrong there, don't you think?

Margo: Yes, I do think, but Katie's made it very clear to me that she doesn't care what anybody thinks. So, my little sister wants a wedding and that's what I'm going to give her.

Henry: Hey, Mike. You thinking deep thoughts?

Mike: Yeah.

Henry: What's the problem?

Mike: I was just went down to Fashions and I saw Katie in her wedding dress.

Henry: Ouch. Wow, that is -- that is unfortunate. To say the least.

Mike: Yeah, it brought back so many memories.

Henry: Yeah, uh-huh. Memories -- memories, that's the key word. As in things that happened in the past. Things that are over. Not happening now in present.

Mike: You're a little jumpy, Henry. What's your point?

Henry: My point is that Katie is marrying someone else, Mike.

Mike: Yeah. I'm aware. All too aware.

Brad: I'm sorry. I'm sorry -- I did not mean to bust in on you. Look, I swear -- I didn't even notice what you were wearing. So you see, nothing has been ruined.

Katie: I know. In fact, everything is right on track. Because I found the most beautiful wedding gown. And Margo agreed to be my matron of honor. And she even said that we could get married at their place.

Brad: Wow. Talk about progress. Look, I've got my tux and Henry agreed to be my best man.

Katie: He did? Oh, that's great!

Brad: So I guess we have everything we need to get married.

Katie: I guess we do.

Brad: Are you as happy as I am?

Katie: I am.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Kim: I'm under serious pressure to come up with something that will give us a great big kick in the seat of the pants. Something big.

Brad: Like an on-air wedding?

Margo: Couldn't be better timing. Thank God you're -- here. Where's Katie?

Brad: I have no idea. I was sure she would have been here by now.

Katie: Mike, get out of here! Get out of --

Sage: Is Daddy going to leave?

Parker: Who knows --?

Sage: But they said we were going to be a family again!

Jack: You're just mad because I won't sleep with you anymore.
