Carly: Hey.

Holden: Hey.

Carly: I'm so sorry. Have you been waiting long?

Holden: No, not really. Where's Sage?

Carly: She's not coming.

Holden: What about the riding lesson?

Carly: I know. She said that she has a sore throat. I think she's faking it.

Holden: Ahh -- well, did you tell her that we were going to take it slow, let her get used to the horse first?

Carly: Yeah, I told her she didn't even have to climb on if she didn't want to, that you were going to teach her how to brush the horse and put the saddle on, but it didn't work.

Holden: Hmm. Well, we can't force it.

Carly: Yeah. You know, it's funny. When I was her age, I was on horseback all the time. One of the perks of growing up in Montana, I suppose.

Holden: Well, maybe she'll come around in time.

Carly: Yeah. Well, I'm sorry for the trouble.

Holden: That's okay. Hey, while you're here, want to help me give these guys a workout? Want to go for a ride?

Meg: Hi. I'm here to see Barbara Ryan.

Clerk: Iím sorry. She's out at the moment.

Meg: When will she be back?

Clerk: I'm not sure. You can ask Mr. Ryan.

Meg: Hey.

Paul: Hey.

Meg: I came to see your mother. How is she?

Paul: Better. Thank you. Yeah, she says she wants to go back to work, and I keep telling her that she should wait, but she wants to help me plan this party that we're having for Sofieís jewelry line.

Meg: Oh, you and Sofie are working together now?

Paul: I'm an investor. It's business.

Meg: Well, I wish you much success with the party.

Paul: Thanks. Curried shrimp. I met with the caterer. There's gonna be Thai chicken satay -- and if you're not hungry, an open bar. I'm just saying, you know, on the remote, terribly slim outside chance that you want to stop by, you should feel free.

Sofie: Paul? I have a surprise for you.

Barbara: Surprise, it's me.

Sofie: Barbara, hi. What are you doing here?

Barbara: This was my studio, the last time I looked.

Sofie: Yes, yes, yes, of course, and I thank you for letting me use it while you were in New York. How was your trip?

Barbara: It was very hectic. So, are you all ready for your big debut tomorrow?

Sofie: I'm swamped.

Barbara: And yet you have time to work on a surprise for Paul?

Sofie: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. No, no, it's not for him. It's a piece -- it's a piece -- "Evening surprise. I had this idea to give a name and a story to each of my pieces, and Paul jumped all over it. He thinks it's a great marketing strategy.

Barbara: Well, I happen to agree with him, and this piece is beautiful.

Sofie: Have you talked to Paul since you got back? I hope he's still coming to the party.

Barbara: As a matter of fact, he's over at the Lakeview talking to the caterers right now, but if you think you're going to be spending any time with Paul at the party, you'd better think again.

Paul: Come on, Meg, it's just a party. It's not a seminar on the sub-prime mortgage crisis.

Meg: It's a little bit more complicated than that. I don't think Sofie would want me there.

Paul: She won't even notice. She'll be so busy, you know, pushing her jewelry, trying to make a name for herself.

Meg: Well, good for her.

Paul: It would be great if you could come. I mean, if nothing else, to prove that we can be in the same room together without me being hauled off in handcuffs.

Meg: You mean the two of us having a civil conversation, kind of like now?

Paul: Yeah, like now. Two times in the same week. That's like a record for us.

Amy: Hey.

Alison: Hey. This is so not my day!

Amy: Come on, it could be worse.

Alison: Yeah, Brenda could post our exam scores. Did she?

Amy: Like five minutes ago.

Alison: Oh, God, I'm afraid to look. If I fail physic, I'm flunking out! Not to mention my mother will kill me.

Amy: Want to know how you did?

Alison: I'd rather have my spleen removed.

Amy: Well, before you donate your vital organs to science, there's good news. You passed! Just barely, but you made it.

Alison: Oh, I don't care if it was by the skin of my hippocampus. I passed? Yay, thank God!

Amy: I don't think the hippocampus has skin.

Alison: Well, whatever. Either way, mine right now is shouting for joy! Yay!

Chris: So, you've posted the exam scores?

Brenda: If you're asking about Alison Stewart, you already know the results.

Chris: Did she pass?

Brenda: On paper, yes. But is she showing me what it takes to be a good nurse? Far from it.

Chris: She's working really hard.

Brenda: That's what you keep saying. And that's why I keep cutting her slack. But we both know, under normal circumstances, she'd be failing.

Chris: I'm sure she'll get her grades up.

Brenda: She's already gotten breaks other students would never get. And Memorial's nursing program has a national reputation, Chris. We didn't get it by giving struggling students a pass.

Chris: Give her a chance to prove herself. I'm sure she'll surprise you.

Alison: Hey, Aaron. Hey, I guess I missed you, but I have some great news -- and, seriously, thank you for getting Meg to help me study. I owe you guys both. And I would like to thank you in person soon, so give me a call. Bye.

Chris: Hey!

Alison: Hey.

Chris: Heard you passed your exam. Congratulations.

Alison: Yeah, it was kind of like surviving a near death experience, but, you know, considering the alternative, I will take it.

Chris: Well, this calls for a celebration. Can I buy you a nonalcoholic diet beverage at the bar of your choice?

Alison: Of course. How can I turn you down?

Carly: It's beautiful. I miss this.

Holden: Well, you can come down to the stables anytime. I'll put you to work.

Carly: Don't tempt me.

Holden: So, why don't you ride Angie? I picked her out for Sage. She's a bit more gentle.

Carly: Hey, do I look like I need gentle?

Holden: Well, this is Zeke. He can be a handful.

Carly: That's okay. I happen to love a challenge.

Holden: Up you go.

Carly: Oh, he's nice. You coming?

Holden: I am.

Paul: It's not a big deal. It's just a party invitation. It's a yes-or-no question. All you have to do now is say yes.

Meg: It's a little more complicated than that.

Paul: Right, because of the restraining order, which is something that I've been meaning to talk to you about, because, you know, you and I, we've been running into each other a lot, and I know it's nothing that I've done, so I just want to know, are you following me?

[Meg chuckles]

Paul: Are you?

Meg: No.

Paul: Okay, just checking. I screwed up. I know. And that thing with Sofie --

Meg: That thing?

Paul: I'm an idiot. It just proves what an idiot I am. I felt like I had nothing left to lose, and I know that's no excuse.

Meg: No, it's not.

Paul: I've told Sofie that it could never happen again. And my relationship with her is strictly business.

Meg: Maybe on your part. But I think Sofie can't say the same. I mean, if she's still hung up on you, isn't it gonna be a problem working together?

Paul: No, I don't think so. I think once her jewelry line takes off that she'll feel really good about herself. She won't need me. She won't even need the idea of me. She'll be happy. That's -- well, that's my big plan, anyway.

Meg: You know, you're a really good guy when you put your mind to it.

Paul: I think I've changed. [Paul sighs] I know I've said that to you, like, 1,000 times.

Meg: But this time is different?

Paul: It's just an invitation to a party, okay? I don't want to put any pressure on you. It's just, you know -- it's a peace offering. It's a -- it's a white flag. You want to come to a party?

Meg: You know, before I give you an answer, there's something I have to do. I'll be right back.

Sofie: Nothing -- nothing is going on between me and Paul. Not anymore. It's -- it's strictly professional.

Barbara: I hope so.

Sofie: I owe you both so much, so -- I made you -- made you this.

Barbara: Oh, my.

Sofie: And these.

Barbara: Ohh --

Sofie: I would love for you to wear them at the party, if they go with what you're wearing.

Barbara: I think they will go with anything. They're beautiful. Thank you very much. I will treasure them.

Sofie: You and Paul have been so good to me. I want you to know how grateful I am.

Barbara: Sofie, you shouldn't be thinking about us right now. You should be thinking about tomorrow night. You have a lot riding on this party, so mixing business with pleasure would be a very big mistake. Do you understand?

Sofie: Of course I do.

Chris: All right. This is only the beginning. Here's to passing every test from here on out.

Alison: Oh, I wish. You know, don't take this the wrong way, but I am really proud of myself for doing this without your help.

Chris: Good for you.

Alison: No. Not just good for me, good for us, because if there's a chance for us to start going out again, it shouldn't complicate things.

Chris: Well, on the other hand, we're kind of going out right now. I hope that's allowed.

Alison: Hmm -- only if you let me kill you in darts.

Chris: Not if I kill you first.

Alison: Yeah.

[Alison laughs]

Chris: I guess we both killed.

Alison: Yeah? Well, how about a rematch?

Student #1: You guys want a real challenge, try it blind.

Alison: What? You mean, like, drunk?

Student #2: Nope. With a blindfold.

Chris: Ah. Think you can handle it?

Alison: Oh, yeah! Prepare to be spanked.

Chris: Well, ladies first. Ready?

Alison: Okay, yeah. Yeah. All right. Out of my way. Give me some room.

Chris: Okay.

Alison: Okay.

[Chris laughs]

Alison: What? How did it go?

Chris: No, nothing. It was perfect. You're doing great. Try again.

Alison: All right. Okay.

Chris: Yeah.

Alison: Good?

Chris: Way to go. Way to go.

Alison: Where'd they --

Alison: Fine, you think you can do any better?

Chris: Well, how tough can it be?

Alison: Come here. You try it. And no peeking.

Chris: Mm-hmm.

Alison: All right.

Carly: Your horse looks whipped. You better let her get her rest.

Holden: I think you're the one who needs the rest. You all right?

Carly: Yeah, I'm a little sore. I'm out of practice.

Holden: Come on over here.

Carly: And I'm starving. No fast food out here, though, huh?

Holden: I think I have something. Beef jerky.

Carly: Why not?

Holden: Why not?

Chris: Oh, thank you.

Alison: You totally cheated.

Chris: No. I swear I didn't cheat. The trick is to use your muscle memory, let your sense of direction guide you.

Alison: Okay, if that was true, people could drive blindfolded.

Chris: No, I wouldn't recommend that. Oh, that's -- that's double the points. What's the score? What's that, 14 -- 14 to zip?

Alison: Not for long. Come here. Let me see this. Help me out. All right.

Chris: Why don't we -- why don't we double the stakes? Winner gets to pick the punishment.

Alison: Oh. I am so there. Just let me get my darts. I think I need my darts. And I promise -- I promise you, I am going to make it hurt, okay?

[Chris grunts]

Alison: How'd I do?

Chris: Well -- well, you said it would hurt.

Alison: Where did it go?

Chris: I hope that's not a poisonous dart.

Alison: Oh, my God! You're bleeding!

Meg: Hey.

Paul: Hi. Where'd you go?

Meg: I had some important business to take care of.

Paul: Business?

Mike: What the hell is going on here, Ryan?

Meg: Hey, Mike, I can explain --

Mike: This guy doesn't know when to quit. You think you can just keep breaking the restraining order and get away with it?

Paul: Who died and made you Megís Snyderís babysitter?

Meg: Okay, okay, okay. Time out, Guys. I just spoke to Margo, and I had the restraining order lifted. I was about to deliver the news to Paul. He's off the hook.

Meg: Okay, look. The restraining order is just getting in the way, and if I'm going to come here to check on his mother, why should Paul be chased out of her suite just to comply by some papers that don't make sense anymore.

Paul: Meg, thanks. I'll try not to screw it up this time.

Paul: I got to get this contract to the caterer.

Meg: Don't keep me in suspense. Go ahead, say it.

Mike: Okay, I will. I think this is a mistake.

Alison: Well, I'm glad you trust my nursing skills, but it doesn't take an R.N. to see that this needs to be disinfected. And I don't think Yoís is the most sterile environment.

Chris: Yeah, well, lucky for me, I have all the first-aid supplies I need back at my house.

Alison: Yeah, well, good luck using them with your one free hand. Look, I stuck you with this -- pun intended. So I'm going to help you out of it, okay?

Chris: You sure you don't mind coming back to my room?

Alison: No. I mean, it's the least I can do.

Chris: Thank you.

Alison: Okay? Hold that.

Susan: Aaron, what brings you here?

Aaron: I just got a message from Alison. She said she had news. Was it about her exam?

Susan: They just posted the grades. She passed.

Aaron: Yes!

Susan: Just barely.

Aaron: Hey, that's fine. Fine.

Susan: Yeah, definitely. I heard Meg helped out at the last minute. That was nice of her.

Aaron: Yeah. Well, it's better than Chris helping out.

Susan: That's for sure. Alison's trying to keep her distance there. Oh, Amy, have you seen Alison around?

Amy: Yeah, uh -- I saw her leaving earlier with Chris Hughes.

Chris: Ready for the procedure, Nurse?

Alison: Ready, Doctor. Okay. I may -- I need you to take off your shirt. I mean, I could cut it off, but then you wouldn't be able to wear it again.

Chris: Yeah. Not sure if the bloodstain's going to come out, so --

Alison: Well, try hydrogen peroxide. I got that covered, too.

Chris: You're good to have around.

Alison: Yeah.

Chris: Okay.

Alison: Let me see it. This may sting a little.

Chris: No, you have a gentle touch.

Alison: You know, this is the part of nursing I actually get. But if I stabbed you with a dart, would you want me passing you a scalpel in the middle of surgery?

Chris: Well, not if you're wearing a blindfold.

Alison: Just think, a routine appendectomy -- God knows what it would turn into.

Chris: Yeah. Maybe, like, a sex change.

Alison: Okay. Hold still. We are almost finished, Christine. Here we go. Let me just get this. Okay. There you go. I didn't even hit a vein.

Chris: Yeah. The dart-throwing definitely needs work, but the nursing skills rock.

Alison: Well, you're an excellent patient.

Chris: Do I get a lollipop?

Alison: Well, next you'll want me to kiss your boo-boo.

Chris: Well, sounds good to me. But don't feel obligated.

Alison: No. You definitely deserve it.

Holden: You want some more?

Carly: No, I'm good.

Holden: What's the matter? You don't like it?

Carly: Are you kidding? No. I used to live on that stuff back in Montana.

Holden: Hmm, I'm sure you did. We better get back home before it gets too late.

Carly: Yeah. I have to fix supper for those kids.

Holden: Want me to send over some beef jerky?

Carly: No, that would really scare Sage. Come on.

[Horse neighs]

Holden: I think we might have a problem here. I think Angie might have sprained her hind leg, probably chasing you showboating over that fence.

Carly: Oh, it's my fault?

Holden: No, no. She favors that leg. I should have been more careful with her.

Carly: Will she be all right?

Holden: Yeah, I think so. But just to be on the safe side, I should probably walk her back.

Carly: The whole way? Come on, Holden. Why don't you ride with us?

Meg: Honestly, I think I'm doing the right thing. Paul seems to be in a better place.

Mike: I hope you're right, but I don't trust the guy.

Meg: Well, I'm going with my gut on this one.

Mike: Meg, you are a great person. You're patient, forgiving, but I don't think Paul deserves this kind of a chance. What if he screwed it up again?

Paul: Well, I'm going to try not to. Look, Mike, I understand why you're skeptical. Really, I lack self-discipline, but it's something that I'm working on, and now that we're business partners, I'm hoping that I can show you with my actions instead of just -- instead of just words.

Mike: Well, I'm willing to meet you halfway.

Paul: You know, we're having a party here tomorrow night, and before you got here, I invited Meg. But it would be great if you could come, too, Mike. You want to come to a party?

Holden: You don't mind, do you?

Carly: Not at all.

Holden: You comfortable?

Carly: Uh-huh. How about you?

Holden: I'm good.

Paul: Mike, think of it this way. It might be really good for business. I mean, anybody that can come to a fancy jewelry party is probably somebody that can afford to buy an ecofriendly home like the one we're building out at the Snyder farm. Might be something that's really great for Emma.

Meg: Paul may be right.

Mike: I'll think about it. Here. I need you to sign these work orders.

Paul: You got it. Look, you know what? I'm gonna sign these papers without even reading the fine print. That's how, like, calm I am about everything, you know, because Mike -- he's an honorable guy. He's trustworthy. And all I'm asking for is a chance to show you that I can be seen in the same light. See you guys at the party.

Meg: I think we should go together. It might be fun.

Mike: I just -- I can't figure out why Paul would invite me. I mean, doesn't he usually want you all to himself?

Holden: Ohh.

Carly: Why are we stopping?

Holden: To give Angie a rest.

Carly: You know, poor Zeke here is gonna be on crutches after lugging us all the way back.

Holden: No, Zeke's tough. Besides, you're light. You don't count.

Carly: Is that right? Even after eating all that beef jerky?

[Holden laughs]

Holden: That stuff was disgusting. I only ate it because you did.

Carly: Really? Are you serious? That's something one of my kids would do, you know.

Holden: Are you calling me a kid?

Carly: I guess so.

Holden: Let's go.

Carly: Do you ever ride with Lily?

Holden: Not in years, actually.

Carly: You should. You know, you do something outdoors, it's -- you're not on anyone's turf, you know? You're on neutral ground. It can help communicate, you know? I don't want to sound like a shrink.

Holden: No, I appreciate that. When I see Lily, I'll, uh -- I'll talk to her about it.

Barbara: Hi, Honey.

Paul: Hey.

Barbara: Hey.

Sofie: Hi. How's it going?

Paul: Oh, great. I just met with the caterer, and we're all set. How you feeling?

Barbara: I'm -- I'm okay. I'm okay. Sofie suggested we stop in for a cup of tea, and I wanted to see how the party preparations were coming.

Paul: Everything's under control, and with any luck, we'll be able to add two more names to the guest list.

Barbara: Oh, really? Great, who?

Paul: Mike Kasnoff and Meg Snyder.

Mike: There's a reason that I make Paul sign every work order that I get. With any other partner, a verbal agreement would be fine, but with Paul, it's different. I need it in writing so he doesn't pull a fast one, and you should do the same thing.

Meg: I know. You're right. It's one thing to drop the restraining order. It's another thing to let myself get too involved again.

Mike: So you'll be careful?

Meg: I have to be. I've been burned too many times to let it happen again.

Alison: I'm sorry. Okay, I canít. I can't, I canít. I don't know what's wrong with me. I never should've let it go this far. I don't know why I keep doing this.

Chris: That's what I would like to know.

Alison: I just -- I just felt so close to you today that I thought I could go through with it this time, but I canít. Please don't be upset with me.

Chris: What's your problem, Alison? Are you deliberately trying to torture me or what?

Carly: I'm sorry that Lily took the kids and moved away from the farm. I know that my advice had a lot to do with it.

Holden: Carly, I don't blame you or Lily for what happened. I'm just trying to make the best of it. I'm hoping that, over time, things will get better.

Carly: I hope so, too. You know, I only want what's best for you, Holden.

Holden: Thanks, Carly. I appreciate that.

Chris: It just feels like you're trying to get back at me for something so you come here, you get me all turned on, and then you just shut down. Does it give you some sort of sick thrill to watch me sweat?

Alison: I swear, I didn't mean to do that again.

Chris: Is it because I slept with Emily?

Alison: No, I told you, it has nothing to do with my sister. Please, Chris, just understand. This is nothing against you. I just -- I just don't really feel good enough about myself right now.

Chris: Why don't I believe that? Am I really supposed to understand you can't be with me but you can get it on with some guy when the cameras are rolling? You know, porn -- porn is okay, but making love to someone who really cares about you -- that's just a deal breaker, right?

[Knock on door]

Aaron: Alison, what happened to you?

Alison: I didn't know where else to go. Can I come in?

Aaron: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Come in. I just -- I just got your message, and I heard you passed your exam, but you don't look very happy about it.

Alison: I really messed up.

Aaron: Hey, at least you didn't flunk out, right?

Alison: It's not about the exam, Aaron.

Aaron: Someone saw you at the hospital leave with Chris Hughes. What did that jerk do now?

Susan: Chris, what are you doing?

Chris: Trying to inoculate myself.

Susan: Against what?

Chris: Your daughter, Alison.

Alison: So I went home with him, and we both got a little carried away. And we were kissing on the bed, and then when I tried to stop Chris, he just really lost it.

Aaron: Who the hell does he think he is? I mean, if you said no, then he's got to respect that.

Alison: Yeah, but I get why he didn't, Aaron. I've been sending him mixed signals, and this isn't the first time. Maybe Chris is right. Maybe I should see a shrink.

Aaron: No, no, no, no. No way, okay? This is not your fault, okay? It's Chris, and he should know not to push you if you're not ready.

Alison: He didn't even push me that hard. But he just got so angry. And he said -- he said terrible things.

Aaron: What? What did he say to you?

Alison: He knows I did porn. And he said that if I could do it with a stranger on camera, then why couldn't I --

Aaron: How does he get off talking to you this way?

Alison: I felt so ashamed.

Aaron: You have nothing to be ashamed about, okay? You made some mistakes -- that's fine -- but that doesn't give him any reason to treat you like dirt.

Alison: What he said was awful, but I was awful, too, to keep leading him on. I don't know why I do that. I think I'm fine and I think I want to be with to him, but then all of a sudden, I just freeze.

Aaron: Listen, Alison, I don't -- I don't have all the answers, okay? But it might just be this simple. Maybe you just don't care about him enough.

Barbara: Um, I'm gonna go find Lisa and see if she has press passes for tomorrow night, okay?

Paul: Okay, okay. Two more seats for Mike and Meg -- don't forget.

Barbara: I -- I know.

Mike: Let's get out of here, okay?

Paul: Uh, did you two get a chance to think about what you wanted to do tomorrow night?

Meg: Uh, we'd love to come. Thank you for inviting us.

Paul: No problem. I'll look forward to seeing you both.

Sofie: So, why did you invite them, Paul?

Paul: It's time to let bygones be bygones.

Sofie: Oh. So, Meg and Mike are coming together?

Mike: I need to be honest with you, Meg. Am I just gonna be acting like some sort of a beard, an escort, so that Paul can have some face time with you? Because if that's the deal, you can count me out.

Holden: Well, Angie made it back. Good girl.

Carly: She gonna be all right?

Holden: Yeah, I think so. She's pretty tough. That's what I like about her. Let me help you down. So, here we are.

Meg: Okay, call me crazy, but I am giving Paul the benefit of the doubt.

Mike: Sounds crazy to me.

Meg: Look, he gave us an olive branch. We should just accept it and see if he behaves himself at the party.

Mike: I still think that Paul only invited us to get you there.

Meg: Well, then, I have a little surprise for Paul, because I am not going to the party to be with Paul. You and I are going together, and I intend to make sure that we enjoy ourselves together.

Mike: You mean, like, a date?

Meg: Yeah, why not?

Mike: Well, now that you put it that way, count me in.

Meg: I can always count on you, Mike.

Paul: Thank you.

Sofie: It was very nice of you to invite Mike and Meg. I'm sure they'll have a lovely time at the party.

Paul: Yeah, they're gonna have a great time.

Alison: Thank you for listening, Aaron. And for saying what you did about Chris. Maybe I've just been expecting myself to have feelings for him that I just don't have anymore. And that's why, when we get to that certain point, it doesn't feel right.

Aaron: So, then don't let him make you feel guilty. You have to do what's best for yourself.

Alison: I know. I just wish I didn't feel so confused all the time. You know, sometimes, I think the problem isn't Chris, but it's me. I get, I don't know, scared.

Aaron: Scared of what?

Alison: Myself. My life. School. It just can get so overwhelming. It wears you down, you know? Like, right now, I am just so exhausted. I feel like I could sleep for days.

Aaron: So, then do it. Take it easy. Sleep for days.

Alison: I would, but really can't stand the thought of going home right now and seeing my mother after this disaster with Chris. She should have a big "I told you so" tattooed on her forehead.

Aaron: Well, you can always stay here.

Alison: With you?

Aaron: Yeah. I mean, you know what I'm saying. Grandma's got a ton of rooms upstairs. You find a room, you chill out.

Alison: No, I can't. What would Emma say?

Aaron: Grandma would probably say, "If a friend needs you, then you take care of her."

Susan: Now, the least you can do is give me an explanation.

Chris: Thanks.

Susan: Don't mention it. Now, how did my daughter expose you to tetanus?

Chris: She stabbed me with a dart.

Susan: Why? What did you do to her?

Chris: Nothing. It was an accident.

Susan: Then why are you so set?

Chris: Because I can't win with her. No matter what I do. If I give her space, if I'm there for her, if I'm not there for her -- it just doesn't matter. She keeps setting up these situations where I think we're getting somewhere, and then she'll just kick me to the curb, and you know what? I'm just -- I'm just sick and tired of it.

Susan: Well, no matter what happened, there are always two sides to it.

Chris: Yeah. And I'm always wrong, ask Alison.

Susan: I will. Where is she, by the way?

Chris: I have no idea. And you know what? I don't give a damn.

Henry: Well, I was flabbergasted to hear about the Snyder farm project. I never thought, in a million years, that Emma would give up with land.

Mike: Yeah, especially to an evil developer like me.

Henry: One of these days, you're gonna have to tell me how you talked her into it.

Mike: I didn't really do that much talking.

Henry: Really? It was just your manly charm, Mike? Come on. Emma doesn't fall for that sort of thing.

Mike: I'm like catnip to women. I really am. Now that I've conquered the mother, I think I may move on to the daughter.

Henry: Meg? Are you serious?

Mike: I'm taking her to a party tomorrow night, if you call that serious.

Henry: Does Paul Ryan know about this?

Mike: He invited us.

Henry: Oh, Boy. I don't like this. I don't like this at all, Mike.

Mike: Why not?

Henry: Um, I don't know if you've noticed, but Paul can be quite possessive, in the psychotic sense.

Mike: Meg says he's changed.

Henry: Okay, all right. Before you take that to heart, make sure you have a note from his shrink.

Mike: Yeah, thanks, Henry. Can't you just, you know, be happy for me? I mean, this is the first date I've had with a beautiful woman in months.

Henry: Right, and the last beautiful woman in your life stomped on your heart pretty badly, as I recall.

Mike: If you're talking about Katie, I am finally over her. So just say "Congratulations, Mike." And get me some ketchup.

Henry: Congratulations, Mike. I hope you have a wonderful time tomorrow night. And carry a weapon, just in case.

Carly: So, what time is good for you tomorrow? I mean, if I can talk Sage into coming out for one of your horse-appreciation classes.

Holden: Tomorrow. Tomorrow's actually no good. I, uh -- I might be busy.

Carly: Oh. Okay. Well, thanks for the ride. See you around.

Announcer: On the next "As the World Turns,"  

Luke: Do you think he'd hurt her?

Noah: Luke, I think he'd hurt whoever got in his way.

Colonel Mayer: Don't you dare go against me, Boy.

Noah: Where's Ameera? Tell me where she is!

Meg: Alison stayed at the farm last night with Aaron.

Paul: I was thinking about how nice it would be to kiss you.
