Vienna: Where is he?
Vienna: Don't play dumb! What have you done with Henry?
Henry: Help! Somebody get me out of here!
James: Henry, Henry. Save your vocal cords. No one's gonna hear you. The walls of Fairwinds are very, very thick.
Henry: Oh, James, James. You are the one who is thick if you think you can get away with first-degree kidnapping, okay?
James: Have some breakfast. It'll improve your outlook.
Henry: I'm not hungry.
James: Not even for omelet aux fine herbes prepared by moi?
Henry: Herbs? Herbs? What do you mean, herbs like arsenic? You'll do anything to keep the world from finding out that James Stenbeck is still in circulation.
James: Very wise on your part, Henry, not to totally trust me, you see, but the choice is yours -- survive or starve.
Vienna: Henry never showed up at Metro! He's not at the diner! He never came home! I've been calling his phone for every 15 minutes, and he doesn't pick up! And the last time I spoke to him, he was supposed to meet you, so what have you done to him, Bonnie?
Bonnie: Did it ever occur to you that maybe you scared him off with your constant fits of paranoid jealousy?
Vienna: Did it ever occur to you that I could scratch your eyes out if you don't tell me where he is?
Waiter: Ladies, break it up! Break it up, please! Please!
Paul: I need a backhoe at the construction site. No, not an operator, just the big piece of machinery. I don't care. I don't care what it costs. Just get it there!
James: Very good, Paul. I'm very proud of you.
Paul: I'm very sick of you. I'm gonna dig up that treasure that you buried or die trying.
James: That's the way. Good. Take action. Take the bull by the horns. But how are you going to do it?
Paul: The Snyders and Mike Kasnoff are all busy today, some kind of a family wedding.
James: Well, it is a beautiful day to go digging for buried treasure.
Paul: Get out. Get out.
Paul: Hey. What are you doing up? What are you wearing?
Meg: We can't miss Aaron and Alisonís wedding. Come on, get dressed.
Paul: No, no, no, no! No, we're not going.
Emma: Wow! Look at this handsome guy.
Jack: Thank you.
Emma: Listen, would you finish up here for me, Sweetheart? Take these out for me?
Emma: I got to go finish up dressing.
Janet: You look amazing.
Jack: Thank you.
Janet: Well, what do you think? Too much? Too little? Not enough?
Jack: Are you kidding me? I think there's enough food here to feed an army.
Janet: Not the food! The dress!
Jack: You look fantastic.
Janet: Thank you. Hey, do you want to try some of my melon balls before I pack them up?
Jack: I'm sorry. What?
Janet: Wow. It's a good thing Brad and Katie are away on location today.
Janet: If they're not at the wedding, then you won't be reminded about losing the evidence against Brad.
Jack: Do me a favor -- don't mention that subject ever again.
Carly: Oh, Sage, you look beautiful! Your brothers are gonna be so sorry to miss this wedding.
Sage: They'd rather be playing soccer. How about you, Mommy? Why aren't you dressed for the wedding?
Carly: Because I wasn't invited.
Holden: So, how's the groom to be?
Aaron: Pretty good. Pretty good. Hey, Luke, can you help me with this flower thingy?
Holden: So, anything you need your best man to do?
Holden: No? Got the rings. They're right here. So, how's it feel? Your big day? You're not getting cold feet, are you?
Aaron: No, no, no, no. It feels pretty good. I mean, now that it's here, its like, "What took so long?" You know? But it's pretty obvious. Ali and I were always meant to be.
Susan: It's gonna be a beautiful wedding!
Emily: Yeah, well, I just hope Ali's dress fits. She's never even tried it on.
Susan: Listen, everything will be fine as long as we follow procedure.
Susan: You take the something new, borrowed, and blue. I've got the old thing covered.
Susan: Ali, are you with us? Ali?
Alison: I'm sorry. What?
Susan: Could we have a little enthusiasm, please? After all, you're about to marry the man of your dreams.
[Alison remembering having sex with Chris]
Casey: Can you just ask my grandma? It'll be okay with her.
Chuck: Mrs. Grimaldi's out, but I'll ask a manager for you. Thank you. Thank you, chuck.
Chris: Hey, Case. How's it going?
Casey: Hey, I'm just trying to borrow some sound equipment for the -- for Aaron and Alisonís wedding.
Chris: Oh, the wedding's still happening.
Casey: Yeah. Is there any reason it shouldn't?
Alison: I'm sorry if I look a little spaced. I guess it's just -- you know, the whole day, it's a little surreal.
Susan: Oh, Honey. It's perfectly normal. Come on, Emily. Let's go get those gifts.
Emily: You sure you're okay? Okay.
Dani: I know why you feel weird. Marriage is huge. Commitment with a capital "C," right?
Alison: No kidding. And, unfortunately, commitment has never been my strong suit.
Dani: Then maybe you're making a mistake. Don't do it, Alison. Don't marry Aaron.
Alison: Where the heck did that come from?
Dani: Come on, Ali. As if you don't know.
Emily: Is there a problem in here?
Alison: No. Of course not. Dani was just wishing me luck.
Emily: Dani, can you do me a favor? Run downstairs and see if Caseyís back. He might need help.
Dani: Sure. Be happy, Alison. That's what matters, right?
Casey: Did you really think the wedding's gonna get called off?
Chris: Just, I saw Alison yesterday, she seemed overwhelmed.
Casey: You are crazy if you think Alisonís gonna bail. Time to move on, Man.
Chris: Hey, Man, you know --
Casey: No, Alisonís gonna get hitched whether you like it or not.
Meg: Aaron's my nephew. We can't miss his wedding.
Paul: Well, we should at least call a doctor.
Meg: No. That's not necessary. I will sit the whole time, but I have to be there, and so do you. So you need to go get dressed, and I'll finish up.
James: Complications, huh? You're gonna have to think fast, Paul. Your loan-shark friend is turning the screws, and we don't want anything to happen to your wife and child.
Vienna: Tell me where my Henry is or I'll call the police!
Bonnie: Oh, go ahead. I'll file harassment charges.
Vienna: And I'll report you for kidnapping!
Bonnie: Come on, Vienna! Relax! Henry's probably out gambling or something.
Vienna: No, no, he wouldn't do that! Not without telling me because he knows how worried I'd get. And why doesn't he call?
Henry: Hey, hey. I am sorry I doubted you, okay? Do I still get another shot at breakfast?
James: Why should you?
Henry: Because, whatever this test is, I'm not gonna pass it if I'm starving to death.
James: Oh, you know, I put in a lot of effort to prepare these meals for you. I invest a lot of my time, my energy, my skill, my intelligence, and you refuse me!
Henry: Sorry. You know, I have an idea of how we can just get rid of this trouble altogether. Just let me go, James. I swear on my mother's life, I won't turn you in. I'll be as silent as the grave.
James: Graves are silent. You want out of here, is that it?
Henry: Yes, yes, yes, please. Pretty please.
James: Pretty please? Okay, I'll give you your freedom. You're gonna have to earn it.
Bonnie: I'm sure Henry will turn up soon enough, but, in the meantime, I have a date with Derek, and I want you gone by the time he gets here.
Vienna: Henry thinks your friend Derek is bad news.
Bonnie: Well, Henryís not a good judge of character. Look at you.
Vienna: Well, have a wonderful date. I hope it's a disaster.
Bonnie: Hey. Would you like to try our best bubbly?
Derek: Sounds good. But first, I'd like to try this.
Jack: All the food's in the kitchen. I don't think anyone's gonna go hungry.
Lily: Oh, good. Don't the flowers look beautiful? Mike built that arbor just for the wedding.
Jack: Really? Nice work, Mike.
Mike: Thank you.
Lily: Listen, I'm sorry that Brad and Katie couldn't make it, but I'm glad you're here, Jack.
Mike: Let's grab a drink.
Jack: Hey, Holden.
Holden: Jack. You think I deserve this, don't you?
Jack: I didn't say a word.
Holden: Exactly. We've barely said a word to each other in weeks. Are we okay or what?
Jack: I'll never forget what you did with Carly, but, lately, I'm trying to be less judgmental, so, yeah, we're okay.
Holden: Good. What's the change in attitude?
Janet: Hey, Jack, could you come in here for a second? I need you to taste my gravy, see if it's got enough kick.
Jack: I'm gonna go taste her gravy.
Carly: What do you have there?
Sage: A magic flower.
Sage: These purple ones have special powers. You make a wish and close your eyes, and then, when you open them, you'll see your true love. Try it.
Carly: I already see my true love, Sage Snyder. You have a wonderful time, okay?
Sage: Bye, Mommy.
Holden: Hey, Carly.
Carly: Hi. I'm just dropping Sage off. I know I don't belong here.
Holden: Yes, you do. I want you to stay.
Carly: I didn't get an invitation.
Holden: That's okay. I don't think anybody will mind. You see, Lily and I, we've come to an understanding.
Carly: Well, good for you. But I'm clearly not dressed for a wedding.
Holden: You look perfect. You always do.
Lily: Carly, thank you for dropping Sage off.
Holden: I invited Carly to stay.
Carly: But I canít. It's really not appropriate. Give Aaron and Alison my best, please.
Emily: Okay, moving right along. Something new. The new shoes we bought you. Open it up. There's a little something else in there.
Alison: Tickets to Coldplay?
Emily: Yeah, it pays to have a press pass.
Alison: Thank you, Emily.
Emily: Aww, Honey, you're welcome. I'm not done. Hang on. One more thing. Something blue, because there's this little thing called a honeymoon after a wedding. Here you go.
[Alison remembering having sex with Chris]
Susan: Sweetie, what's wrong?
Alison: Me. I don't deserve any of this.
Casey: Sound system all set!
Aaron: Okay. I guess that's my cue.
Casey: Good luck.
Aaron: All right.
Casey: Dani, what's wrong?
Dani: It's Alison. She slept with Chris Hughes yesterday, and Aaron has no idea. I got to tell him.
Susan: Honey, please stop. You're marrying a wonderful guy who is absolutely crazy about you. Of course you deserve it.
Alison: Mom, you have no idea. I have made so many mistakes.
Susan: That's all in the past. You've got a whole new life now, and you have every right to a happy ending. You do. You do. Now dry those tears, and I'll see you downstairs. Don't keep Aaron waiting.
Emily: Is there something you need to tell me?
Alison: No. I'm fine. Really.
Emily: Okay, 'cause if you want to get married, Ali, no one's gonna stop you.
Casey: Dani, Dani! Don't do this! Don't ruin the wedding!
Dani: Aaron needs to know the truth! Alison cheated on him.
Casey: Shh! Okay, if Alison goes through with this, she'll have to stay away from Chris, you know? And won't that work out for you?
Dani: I don't know. I don't know. Maybe.
Emily: Everything okay?
Dani: Yeah, we're cool. I'm gonna go get a seat at the wedding before it starts. See you guys later.
Emma: Meg! What are you doing here?
Paul: Don't look at me. I did everything I could to get her to stay home.
Meg: I couldn't miss Aaronís wedding. Don't worry, I'm fine!
Holden: Are you sure? You sure it's okay?
Meg: Yes. I think it is the best thing for me and the baby. Aaron, you and Alison are gonna be so happy together.
Aaron: Thank you. Thank you.
Paul: Come on. Let's get you off your feet. Jack.
Paul: Any idea how long this is gonna take?
Jack: Probably as long as it's gonna take them to get married. Why?
Paul: Just want to make sure Meg gets home and gets some rest. That's all.
[ďHere comes the bride" plays]
Susan: I love you, Sweetheart.
Minister: Dearly beloved, we come to gather today to ask God to bless the union of Alison Stewart and Aaron Snyder in holy matrimony. The joining together of husband and wife in heart, mind, and spirit is the fulfillment of God's will and serves as a beacon of God's love to all those gathered here to witness. Heavenly father, hear our prayers for Alison and Aaron as they pledge their love today. Alison and Aaron have chosen freely to be joined together in holy matrimony.
Dani: Chris, what are you doing here?
Chris: Alison's making a mistake.
Dani: Oh, my God, Chris. You cannot be here. Come on. Come on.
Minister: Speak now, or forever hold your peace.
Henry: So, what's it gonna be? Texas hold 'em? Omaha high? Caribbean stud?
James: Gin rummy.
Henry: What, are you kidding me? Why don't we play go fish, James?
Henry: Okay. Rummy it is. At least it's got gin in it. So, the deal is, if I win, you let me go, correct?
James: That's the deal.
Henry: Bring it on.
[Cell phone ringing]
Bonnie: Bonnie. Yes, I'm at Metro, but Henryís not here. Can I help you? Yeah, I'll go check that out.
Henry: I should play this game more often. Gin.
James: The game's not over yet, Henry.
[Cell phone rings]
Derek: We have a situation here.
Meg: Paul, what is it?
Paul: It's work. It's an emergency. I got to take care of it. I'll be back soon. I promise.
Aaron: Marriage is a big deal, and you have to be ready. And I know now that we are, Alison. I know what we have can last because we understand things we didn't understand before. We know now that marriage is about being patient, being able to put another person first. Most of all, it's about being loyal and trusting each other. Alison, I swear that you can trust me with all your heart and that I know I can trust you with mine. I love you, and I want to be with you forever.
Chris: Dani, do me a favor. Don't tell anyone that Ali and I were together yesterday.
Dani: Your secret's safe with me.
Chris: Thanks. I should go.
Dani: Sure you don't want any company?
Chris: I think I should be alone right now.
Alison: Aaron, you were my first love, and you are the kindest, most generous, most caring and loyal person I know. You deserve the best, and I promise I will try to be the wife that you deserve and I will try to be worthy of your love.
Minister: Aaron, do you take Alison to be your wife to love, comfort, honor, and keep her in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to her until death do you part?
Aaron: I do.
Minister: Alison, do you take Aaron to be your husband to love, comfort, honor, and keep him in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to him until death do you part?
Alison: I do.
Minister: Now Alison and Aaron will exchange rings.
Emma: Is everything okay?
Aaron: Alison, I give you this ring as a symbol of my love. With all that I am and all that I have. I pledge myself to you always.
Alison: Aaron, I give you this ring as a symbol of my love. With all that I am and all that I have, I pledge myself to you always.
Minister: In the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit, I now pronounce you husband and wife. Those whom God has joined together, let no one put asunder. You may kiss the bride.
[Cheers and applause]
Minister: Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Snyder.
Casey: What happened to you?
Dani: I'll tell you later.
Lily: I don't know why weddings always do this to me.
Meg: Paul had to leave.
Emma: In the middle of a wedding? Why?
Meg: It was some kind of work emergency. Whatever it is, I'm sure it was important.
Emma: Well, that emergency, does it have anything to do with something back at the farm.
Meg: I'm not sure. I'll call him.
Emma: What's that noise?
Meg: He's not picking up.
Lily: My girls look so beautiful.
Holden: They sure do. Come on. Let's get a pic.
Mike: When I look at you, it is hard for me to remember that I am here just as a friend. I wish we could be alone for a minute.
Lily: Well, on the way to the farm, in the woods, past a big copper beech tree, I will meet you there. Just slip out before they cut the cake, and nobody will miss us.
Mike: I like the way your mind works.
Janet: I just love your dress. You are such a beautiful bride.
Jack: I concur. Listen, your father wants to record all of this for posterity. He's got the camera down there all fired up and ready to go.
Aaron: Yeah. All right.
Janet: Have fun.
Jack: There she is!
Sage: I want to go pose with Faith and Natalie.
Jack: Okay, go ahead.
Aaron: I got some cider.
Alison: Thank you.
Aaron: Can you believe we finally did it?
Alison: No, I canít. But I meant what I said, Aaron. I really want to make you proud of me.
Aaron: I already am. How did I get so lucky?
Sage: If you make a wish and close your eyes, when you open them, you'll see your true love.
James: Gin. I win again.
Henry: Oh, you cheated, James! Where'd you get the fourth ace?
James: It was just meant to be. But the good news is I get the pleasure of your company a bit longer. Excuse me.
Derek: We've got a problem.
James: Ms. McKechnie and Ms. Hyatt.
Derek: Yes, yes. I think they're working together, looking for this one. We may have to deal with them.
Henry: No! Don't you dare lay a hand on either one of them!
James: Henry, relax. I'm not going to do anything to your lady friends. You will.
Emma: You hear that noise? I think it's coming from the farm. I sent Jack over a while back to see what it was, see if he could stop it, but he hasn't come back. Could you check into it for me?
Mike: Um, sure. No problem.
Emma: Thanks a lot. Thank you.
Jack: What are you doing out here, Carly?
Carly: Waiting for the reception to be over so I can bring Sage home.
Jack: What's this?
Carly: Sage gave it to me. She says it's magic. If you play your cards right, it can conjure up your true love.
Jack: That's good to know. Come on.
Luke: To Aaron and Alison. You give us all hope that if you try hard enough, you can make it in the end. So thank you. Hear, hear!
Faith: Now cut the cake!
Aaron: Don't worry. Don't worry. I'll be good.
Alison: You're always good. Aww.
Casey: Do you know where dad is? He was supposed to make that speech.
Emma: No. I don't know where he ran off to. Or Lily, for that matter.
Lily: You're the last person I expected to see here.
Holden: This used to be our favorite place when we were kids, remember? You dared me to climb up this tree.
Lily: And you fell and broke your collarbone. We were so young.
Holden: Yes, we were. What's that?
Lily: It's a wildflower. I think it's called "Love in idleness." It's supposed to be magic.
Holden: Can it turn us into two innocent kids again?
Lily: Is that what you want?
Holden: Yeah. Maybe.
Carly: I was thinking about mistakes, the ones I've made. The worst was losing you.
Jack: We've all done things we're not proud of.
Carly: Not you.
Jack: Carly, you, of all people, know I'm not perfect. Far from it.
Carly: At least you're making a new life for yourself. You seem happy, Jack.
Jack: I'm getting there.
Carly: Janet's a good person. No agendas. If anyone had to take my place in your life, I'm glad it's someone like her. You deserve to be happy. I should go.
Jack: No, wait. Wait a second. You got something wrong there.
Carly: What's that?
Jack: No one could take your place in my life.
Holden: No way. I don't think I would ever want to be a kid again, because then I would have to repeat all those dumb mistakes I've made.
Lily: You know, I was thinking about what you said yesterday. Just because our marriage didn't work doesn't negate all the good things in our lives, like our kids and all the wonderful memories. We were a great couple, Holden. I miss that.
Holden: So do I.
Lily: We better get back.
Carly: Why did you come out here, Jack?
Jack: I was supposed to be running an errand for Emma, but I could give you a drive home if you want.
Carly: No, I'm fine. You should get back to Janet. She'll be worried.
Bonnie: What the hell are you doing here, Vienna?
Vienna: I don't trust you, Bonnie. I still think that you know where Henry is.
Bonnie: Well, as usual, you're dead wrong, because I don't have a clue! Now, if you were that worried, you'd be out looking for him somewhere.
[Cell phone rings]
Henry: Hello, Liebchen. Guess who?
Vienna: Oh, Henry! Thank God! Where are you?
Henry: Don't be mad. I've been on a bit of a gambling binge here. Been playing blackjack. In fact, I'm at a blackjack table as we speak.
Vienna: Blackjack? Oh, Henry, this is not good.
Henry: Don't worry, Sweet Lips. I'm on a roll here. Blackjack winning streak. I don't know when I'll be home, but I love you. Don't you forget that? Bye, now.
James: Good work, Henry. I hope she bought it, for your sake.
Henry: Me too.
Bonnie: Nothing to worry about. Henry just went out gambling. Didn't I tell you?
Vienna: No, there is. There is something to worry about because Henry doesn't play blackjack. He was trying to tell me he's in trouble!
Mike: Paul, what the hell are you doing?
Luke: Come on, Grandma. The bride and groom are leaving.
Meg: Paul, why aren't you picking up? Please call me.
Janet: Hey. There you are, big guy. What happened to you?
Janet: Are you sure?
Jack: Yeah, I'm fine.
Holden: Thanks for letting us have the wedding here.
Lily: It was my pleasure. We're still family, right?
Emma: Well, my goodness. You two seemed awfully civil. What's going on?
Holden: Nothing. Nothing at all.
Chris: Yeah, I miss her, too.
Alison: Ooh, wow! You better put me down before your shoulder starts to hurt.
Aaron: Oh, I can do this forever.
Alison: I really, really love you, Aaron. But there's something I have to tell you.
Aaron: I know what you're gonna say. Yeah, I know the wedding was rushed, and if you're not ready to make love, I get it. I love you so much, Alison. Just being married to you is all I need.
On the next "As the World Turns" --
Meg: Paul, Mike -- stop!
Henry: I have your word that they will be okay?
James: Any reason to doubt me so far?
Vienna: It's locked!
Margo: Find my damn evidence and close the case!
Carly: Something is wrong with Jack, and I think you know what it is. I don't have time to worry.
