Aaron: I didn't mean to startle you.

Alison: What are you doing here?

Aaron: Well, I came to see my wife. And to see how my little brother's holding up.

Alison: Well, see for yourself.

Chris: I'm gonna need you to use all your super strength and let me hear your loudest cough, okay? One, two, three --

[Ethan coughs]

Chris: All right. Looks like your superhero's gotten all his powers back. He's been through a lot, but his lungs, his throat are clear. Physically, he's good as new. I'm gonna go get the discharge papers ready. Good job, Super Ethan! High five. All right.

Holden: Anything special we need to do?

Chris: Yeah, keep him away from holes in the ground.

Lily: Did you hear that, Sweetie? Mommy and Daddy get to take you home today.

[Emma humming]

Jack: It's good to hear someone happy in this house.

Emma: There's a lot to be happy about.

Jack: So, how is Ethan?

Emma: Well, Holden called a while earlier. He was very scared when he went to the hospital, but he is bouncing right back. Pretty soon, he's gonna be running us ragged in no time.

Jack: So, you're bringing this to the hospital?

Emma: I hope I'm bringing it to Lilyís.

Jack: Ethan may be coming home today?

Emma: Well, that's what I'm praying for.

Jack: Really?

Emma: Yeah.

Jack: Oh, that's great. Especially after the hell everyone's been through.

Emma: Yeah, all because of that damned development project.

Jack: Yeah, but that's been put on hold indefinitely, though, right?

Emma: I am gonna make sure it's put on hold for good! Time things got back to normal around here. For everybody.

Jack: Almost everybody.

Aaron: Can we see him?

Chris: Yeah, Lily and Holden are actually getting ready to go.

Aaron: Today?

Chris: Yeah.

Aaron: Yes! You hear that?

Chris: I better go get those discharge papers ready.

Aaron: My dad and Lily must be wiped. I should go with them. You know, get Ethan settled and see how the girls are, especially Faith. I mean, this has been so hard on her.

Alison: Well, she'll feel a lot better once she sees the little man is back in action.

Aaron: Come with me.

Alison: I have to finish my shift.

Aaron: But you're family. You're family now. Let me go talk to your supervisor --

Alison: You already strong-armed Bob to get all those days off for our honeymoon.

Aaron: I wouldn't exactly call it strong-arming.

Alison: Well, I'll come by later, okay? All right?

Aaron: There's my man!

Alison: Yeah! He looks good!

Lily: Chris said that it had something to do with you. Thank you so much.

Chris: Sign these. Leave them at the nurse's station on your way out. I'll check with you later, see how Ethanís doing.

Lily: Great.

Chris: Bye, Super Ethan! Bye! All right! See you, Buddy!

Holden: Okay, you guys.

Lily: See you.

Alison: Bye.

Holden: Come on, Bud.

Aaron: Wait, Guys. I'm going with you, okay?

Aaron: Come to the house when you're done?

Alison: Okay.

Aaron: Okay.

Chris: Everything okay?

Alison: I just wanted to thank you again.

Chris: Please, donít. I'm up to my armpits in thank yous.

Alison: You saved Ethanís life.

Chris: Just doing my job. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be such a hero.

Alison: You would have caught that obstruction within like two seconds.

Chris: Okay, maybe we both deserve a medal. Can we just leave it at that, okay?

Alison: Okay. You going home?

Chris: Yeah, I have to go feed Morty before he chews up the rest of the carpet.

Alison: Well, he doesn't like his chew toys?

Chris: Not when he can do enough damage that'll cost me next month's salary. Ha, ha, ha. Go ahead and laugh. I'll send you the bill right after I get kicked out for having a dog.

Alison: Poor little guy. He's probably just upset 'cause he's alone. I wish I could help.

Chris: Well, you can come by for a visit, make his whole day.

Alison: I don't know. I'd have to get someone to cover my shift.

Chris: See what you can do. He'll be there.

Paul: Meg! Meg!

Barbara: You can't just walk away and leave him down there!

Mike: Barbara, I know how hard this is for you.

Barbara: That is my son!

Mike: There is no way that anybody could have survived that.

Barbara: You just rescued the Snyder boy! Someone's got to rescue him now!

Mike: I know this has to be hard for you, and we'll call you if we find anything.

Barbara: I'm not leaving here until you pull my son out of there!

[Cell phone rings]

Barbara: What!

Paul: Mom.

Barbara: Paul? Is it really you?

Paul: Yeah, it's me.

Barbara: Oh, God. They said that you wouldn't be able to survive anything. Tell me -- thank God you're okay!

Paul: Mom, cut it out. Is Meg with you?

Barbara: No, I took her home. Remember, you told me to take her home? How are you even getting a signal down there?

Paul: I'll explain everything. Get to Fairwinds.

Barbara: No. I am not leaving until they pull you out of that hole!

Paul: I am out! Mom, get here now!

Mike: Hey, what happened? Was that Meg?

Barbara: Paul's alive.

Mike: What?

Barbara: I just talked to him.

Mike: I can't believe that.

Barbara: It's true, no thanks to you.

Mike: Well, if he found a way out, he didn't let us know.

Barbara: He just did.

Maid: Mr. Ryan, are you all right?

Paul: Have you seen my wife?

Maid: Last time I did, she was with your mother.

Paul: Did anybody else come here after my mother left?

Maid: I was upstairs cleaning, but I didn't hear anyone.

Paul: You left her alone? You left Meg alone? She's pregnant! Why would you leave her alone?

Maid: I'm sorry. Did something happen --

Paul: Get out. Get out! Damn it, James! What did you do to my wife?

Paul: Meg? Meg?

Barbara: Oh God. Oh, thank God you're home. I thought I'd imagined that phone call. Are you okay? What happened? How did you find another way out? Why didn't you call us and let us know you were out?

Paul: I was told not to call anyone.

Barbara: By who?

Paul: By Derek.

Barbara: What?

Paul: Mom, all of it -- the loan shark, the deadline, the rescue through some tunnel that nobody else heard about, it was all engineered by my lunatic father.

Barbara: He let that little boy suffer for nothing?

Paul: How else was he gonna get me out of the way long enough to make his move on Meg?

Barbara: Oh, God.

Paul: He has her. Mom, that son of a bitch has my wife.

Emma: Well, her things are still here.

Jack: Excuse me?

Emma: Janet's makeup, it's on the bathroom counter, so I assume that means she hasn't left yet. Although, it's quite clear that the two of you are having trouble.

Jack: It is?

Emma: Well, you didn't take her to work this morning, and you came by after she was gone. Is she one of the reasons that you're resigning from the force?

Jack: Wow. Is there anything you don't know?

Emma: It's hard not to keep up-to-date when you're living under the same roof as someone. My poor sweetheart. You look as if your life has been turned inside out.

Jack: No. I should be used to that, though, right? Inside out's pretty much my status quo the last couple of years. But you know, I'm due for a change.

[Telephone rings]

Emma: Oh. Hello?

Holden: Your prayers were answered.

Emma: He's home?

Holden: And already asking for you.

Emma: Oh! Tell him I'm on my way. Oh. Ethan is home!

Jack: That's great. You called it.

Emma: Why don't you come with me, okay?

Jack: You know, I've got --

Emma: Good to spend some time with the family.

Jack: I have things to do. You give him a hug for me.

Emma: Well, I'm sure that he'd much rather have a hug from you. Come on.

Jack: Let me help you with the stuff.

Emma: No, no, no, no. Listen, I can manage.

Jack: All right, okay.

Emma: You know, Jack, I remember, when you first moved out here after your divorce, you never thought you'd be able to adjust to being away from Carly and the kids and the house, but you did. You managed. 'Cause you have my strong heart. You're a strong, strong boy. You are my strong boy. And so I'm not worried about you because, whatever happens, I know that you can make the best of it. Listen to me, you always, always do. See ya.

Barbara: What does James possibly want with Meg?

Paul: What do you think, Mom?

Barbara: Have you called the police?

Paul: The police? The police -- when have they ever been able to stop James?

Barbara: Well, you can't go about this yourself. It could be another trap for you. I just heard that Jack Snyder resigned from the force. You've got to call him. Call him. He can help you with this. Yes, yes. He's a good detective. He's had experience with your father. The two of you will be way ahead of anyone else. You've got nothing to lose, Paul.

Emma: He's such a good, sweet, brave boy. Yes, he is. You a brave boy?

Lily: Emma, you didn't have to do all this.

Aaron: I'm glad she did.

Emma: You didn't have time to make all that food and do all those things. Think about that.

Lily: Oh, my goodness. My mother! My mother and Luke. I didn't call them!

Emma: No need to worry. No need to worry. I called her from the car. She said she'll be over as soon as possible.

Lily: Thank you so much.

Emma: You're so welcome so much.

Lily: You're the best.

Emma: So, now who's gonna help me put out all this food?

Faith: I will!

Emma: Good. Come on. Let's go. Let's go, Geronimo.

Ethan: What are you doing?

Holden: So, how are you holding up?

Lily: I'm just afraid that this is a dream and I'm gonna wake up and he's still gonna be trapped down that hole.

Holden: It's not a dream. I promise.

Lily: Excuse me.

Alison: Hey.

Chris: You made it!

Alison: It took me longer to get someone to cover my shift than I thought.

Chris: But you still made it. Morty will be psyched.

Alison: Oh, hi! Hey, come here!

Chris: I told you.

Alison: I missed you, Boy!

Chris: Not as much as he missed you.

Alison: Where you going there? Yeah, it's good that I came by today because, you know, I'm not gonna have that much free time now that I'm married. And any time I do have, I'm gonna be spending at home, obviously.

Chris: You're gonna become a professional housewife now.

Alison: Well, I didn't mean to make it sound like work. I mean, Aaron and I are great. We have a great time together. He actually just got, you know, our honeymoon -- a trip to Lake Michigan.

Chris: He went all out, didn't he?

Alison: Yeah, it was great. The trip was great. I mean, not just the trip, the marriage, in general.

Chris: Alison, what are you doing? Why are you telling me all this?

Aaron: You okay?

Holden: Yeah, yeah. I'm good. I'm good. Ethan's home, we're all together under one roof.

Aaron: Except for Lily.

Holden: Yeah, well, we're still a family, otherwise, I wouldn't be here right now. But Lily and I decided to live separate lives. We both accepted that.

Aaron: Well, it doesn't mean it doesn't bother you to see her with somebody else. You know, I felt that way with Alison. Maybe that's why I decided to get married so fast.

Jack: You didn't say anything to Emma about this, did you?

Paul: No, of course not. I called Emma looking for Meg, but I didn't tell her that I thought James had her.

Jack: Good, good. Let's keep it that way, and I'd appreciate it if you didn't talk to any of the other family members about this. Not after everything they've been through.

Barbara: I agree. So you think you can resolve this quickly enough that no one else will know?

Jack: I'm damn well gonna try.

Paul: Jack, what do we do?

Jack: The loan shark that threatened you, Derek Coburn.

Paul: Derek?

Jack: He was on James' pay roll, yes?

Paul: If anyone would know where Meg was, it would be Derek.

Jack: Okay, and how did you usually get in touch with him? Did you -- cell phone, e-mail?

Paul: No. He would just kind of show up and let me know that time was running out.

Jack: But you had to make initial contact?

Paul: No. That was Henry Coleman. Henry contacted him, and the next thing I know, Derek showed up with all the money I needed.

Jack: All right, well, that's where we start. In order to find Derek, we have to find Henry.

Holden: Hey. Hey, wait a minute. You're not telling me the only reason you married Alison was because you didn't want her to be with someone else.

Aaron: No, no. No, no. I was kidding. There is no one else.

Holden: 'Cause marriage is no guarantee that there won't be someone else. Neither is having kids. Lily and I are proof of that.

Aaron: You know, Dad, it's, like, the last thing I want to hear after my honeymoon.

Holden: You're absolutely right. Don't listen to me.

Aaron: Okay.

Holden: Okay.

Lily: And he wouldn't tell you how he got out?

Mike: No. He didn't seem to feel like sharing that with anyone. But I wanted to let you know that he was out so you don't worry about the hole anymore, and that I boarded it up again, with extra barriers this time.

Lily: Good.

Mike: And I've also arranged for around-the-clock surveillance in case Paul or anyone else should decide to revisit the site.

Lily: Trust me, I am not letting my little boy anywhere near that site ever again.

Mike: He seems to be recovering very well.

Lily: Yeah, like nothing ever happened.

Mike: How about you?

Lily: I'm still a little shaky. When I think about how close I came to almost losing him -- I should get back in there.

Mike: Yeah. Well, I'll call you later?

Lily: Okay.

Mike: And don't forget, I'm here if you need me.

Faith: Please, please, please, can we go to Grandma's and help her make cookies?

Holden: Faith, your brother just got home.

Faith: So?

Lily: What he needs more than cookies is a nap.

Aaron: And if you ask me, looks like you and Dad need a nap.

Emma: You know something? I think it'd be good for them to go. I mean, after all this craziness, it'll be something normal, and I think you two can get a little rest, okay? Please, Mama? Please, Daddy? Please?

Aaron: All right, yeah!

Emma: Yay! Whoo-hoo! Okay, wait for me! Wait for me! You're welcome. Wait up!

Lily: When Aaron said I needed a nap, I must have scared him. Do I look that bad?

Holden: No. You look beautiful. But I can understand not wanting to sleep. It's pretty hard to turn off the switch after this adrenaline rush we've had for the past couple of days. Anyway, I'll look out for the kids. I'll go pick them up and bring them home.

Lily: I wasn't worried about that.

Holden: No, what I'm saying is, if you want to go catch up with Mike, go ahead and do that. It's not a problem.

[Door opens]

Henry: Yes, come in, Liebchen. Let the healing process begin.

Jack: Excuse me?

Henry: Don't tell me you're the new nurse.

Jack: No, it's Jack Snyder, Henry.

Jack: Oh, oh. Oh, great! A cop and a spawn of Stenbeck. Just what the doctor ordered.

Paul: We need your help, Henry.

Henry: No, I don't think so. No, the last time I helped you, I ended up in a wine-tasting marathon with daddy dearest.

Paul: He kidnapped my wife.

Henry: Really? I would thought, as a son, you're exempt from that.

Paul: No. Not in this lifetime.

Jack: You hooked Paul up with Derek Coburn?

Henry: Great! First your dad tortures me, and then you throw me to the wolves!

Jack: Anything you say is off the record, Henry.

Henry: Says the detective.

Jack: I'm not a detective anymore.

Henry: You're not? What happened, Jack?

Paul: Can we sort out Jack's little career crisis some other time, please?

Jack: What did you know about Stenbeck's connection to Coburn?

Henry: Nothing until I was a prisoner.

Jack: Would you say they were close?

Henry: Like a poisonous snake is close to its prey right before it strikes. Yeah.

Jack: You think Coburn was working for him against his will?

Henry: That's the feeling I got, but he was not a very forthcoming thug, okay? I asked why he was releasing me, and he said, "If he told me, he'd have to kill me," so I didn't press it.

Jack: Any idea where I can find him?

Henry: Not a clue.

Paul: You helped me find him the first time.

Henry: That was through a friend of a friend. Actually, an acquaintance of an acquaintance.

Jack: You got a number for me?

Henry: No. But I think I know someone who does.

Faith: Ethan's eating all the chocolate chips!

Emma: You let Ethan do what he wants. You, on the other hand, you help Natalie pour the flour.

Aaron: Pretty soon, you're gonna be ordering my kids around your kitchen.

Emma: Well, not too soon, I hope.

Faith: Is Alison pregnant?

Aaron: Not yet.

Emma: You know, there's a reason why they call this the honeymoon period. It's because the husband and wife get to know each other before children get into the mix.

Aaron: Oh, come on. Ali and I have pretty much known each other since we were kids. I know everything there is to know about her.

Alison: It's getting late.

Chris: You can't leave yet. Don't you want to tell me how deliriously happy you are with your new husband?

Alison: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to rub your nose in it.

Chris: Didn't you?

Alison: I guess I just wanted you to know that everything is working out.

Chris: And I need to know that? Why, exactly?

Alison: Because it seemed like you thought I was making a mistake marrying Aaron.

Chris: After what happened in this room the day before your wedding? Do you blame me?

Alison: No.

Bonnie: Henry warned me about this guy, and by that time, it was too late.

Jack: Yeah, but before that. When you and Derek did meet, did you ever go to his place?

Bonnie: No. No, never. I asked him once or twice where he lived, and then he just changed the subject.

Jack: Yeah, what about his phone number?

Bonnie: No, no. He always called me.

Jack: So, his number should be stored in your cell phone, yes?

Bonnie: Yeah, yeah. Here it is.

Jack: How do you feel about calling him and asking him to meet you?

Bonnie: Jack, the guy locked me in a warehouse and left me for dead with Vienna. I mean, I really didn't want to see this guy face to face!

Paul: Well, you think you could get over that and save my wife?

Jack: Derek -- Derek may be our only hope to finding Meg and James.

Bonnie: Okay, so I ripped into him the last time I saw him, so even if I did call him, he might not come.

Paul: Tell him you're sorry. Tell him anything. Please, just get him over here.

Derek: I didn't expect to hear from you again. Except maybe through the cops.

Bonnie: Yeah, I'm a little surprised to be calling myself.

Derek: Does this mean that you forgive me?

Bonnie: No. I really wouldn't go that far.

Derek: I told you I wouldn't let anything happen to you or your friends, and I meant it.

Bonnie: I know, and you also said you didn't really have a choice.

Derek: And that's the truth, too.

Bonnie: Well, I want to believe you.

Paul: Get him down here. Get him down --

Derek: How can I make this right, Bonnie?

Bonnie: Maybe if I saw you, face to face.

Derek: It can't be in public. I'm laying low these days.

Bonnie: Yeah. Metro isn't open yet, so why don't you just come here.

Derek: You gonna make me a sandwich, for old time's sakes?

Bonnie: Okay, look, don't push it, Derek!

Derek: I know, I know. I'll be there as soon as I can.

Bonnie: He's on his way.

Holden: I just figured that you didn't invite Mike in because of me.

Lily: That's not why.

Holden: Well, I want you to know that I'm not going to give you a hard time. I know I have in the past.

Lily: You've apologized for that.

Holden: And I mean it. So don't worry about the kids. They're having fun at my motherís. I'll pick them up. You can go and relax.

Lily: Relaxing does sound nice.

Holden: Good. You deserve it.

Lily: I don't want to leave.

Holden: Oh, right. You want Mike to come here. I'm sorry. I wasn't thinking. I'll go.

Lily: I don't want to be with Mike.

Holden: You don't?

Lily: No. I want to be here, Holden, in my home, with my kids safe at their grandmothers, and -- I want you to be with me.

Bonnie: Well, that was fast.

Derek: I don't like to keep a woman waiting, especially one who's willing to forgive and forget.

[Derek grunts]

Paul: Where is she?

Derek: Who?

Paul: My wife?

Derek: I don't know!

Paul: Liar!

Jack: Ooh.

Derek: Get him off me, Man!

Jack: No, I don't think so.

Paul: Where is she?

Derek: I told you, I don't know!

[Derek grunts]

Jack: Ooh. The longer his wife stays missing, the more insane he's gonna get, Buddy.

Paul: Tell me where she is!

Jack: The guy's got Stenbeck blood running through his veins, so, if I were you, I'd tell him where his wife is before he kills you.

Paul: Tell me where she is!

Derek: I told you, I don't know where he took her!

Paul: He took her. He took her! He took her!

Derek: That was part of the plan, yes!

Jack: You know what? He's not good to us dead. Okay?

Derek: I told you, I don't know anything else, and that's the truth!

Paul: You work for James. You work for James!

Jack: Paul.

Paul: Were you there? Where you there when he took her from my house?

Derek: I had nothing to do with it!

Paul: If you're lying to me, I will kill you!

Jack: All right. All right. Okay. Okay. All right. Where do you think you're going?

Derek: You got nothing on me!

Jack: I got kidnapping. Bonnie, call Dallas. Tell him Christmas is coming early this year.

[Vienna laughs]

Henry: Mmm. Best solid food ever.

Vienna: Well, I brought a whole box in case you get any visitors.

Henry: I already had some visitors, actually. Jack Snyder and Paul Ryan.

Vienna: I didn't even know they were friends.

Henry: They're not friends, but it seems that Stenbeck didn't limit his kidnapping to just us chickens. I guess he made off with Paul's wife, as well.

Vienna: Meg's been kidnapped?

Henry: So it seems. Jack's trying to find her. He's not a cop anymore, but he hasn't lost his touch. In fact, he gave me quite a grilling over Derek Coburn.

Vienna: Oh, poor Henry. How dare he grill you when all you need is sleep.

Henry: I need a little something more than that.

Vienna: What? Another cookie?

Henry: No, you're not even close. Come here.

Vienna: Feel better?

Henry: Like Superman. At this rate, I'm gonna be released within the hour. Hey.

Vienna: What?

Henry: I'm sorry.

Vienna: For what?

Henry: Can you forgive me for not being there to protect you?

Vienna: You did protect me. You saved me while it counted. You know, even an explosion didn't stop you. And so, for that, I am going to sing you a Swedish lullaby!

Henry: Goodness.

Vienna: It'll put you to sleep.

Henry: I should check in to the hospital more often.

Holden: Well, it's been a rough couple of days. I can certainly understand wanting to stay close to home.

Lily: You know what I really want? I want to get out of these clothes. Sleeping in a tent doesn't exactly leave you feeling shower fresh.

Holden: I know what you mean.

Lily: Well, you could change here. I still have some of your clothes in one of the drawers upstairs.

Holden: That's okay. I don't want to put you out.

Lily: Holden, this is your home, too. I mean, after all the times you fixed that showerhead, you've earned the right to use it.

Holden: Okay. You go first.

Emma: Ah, ah, ah. Not so fast, young man. Not so fast.

Aaron: Okay, I confess. I ate the rest of the cookie dough.

Emma: Well, I'm glad that mystery is over. But that's not what I wanted to talk to you about.

Aaron: This must be the day I get lectured.

Emma: You know that marriage is not the same as dating.

Aaron: Really, Grandma? I didn't know that.

Emma: Don't you get fresh with me. It's a very serious commitment.

Aaron: Does anybody in this family remember seeing me say my vows?

Emma: And with that commitment comes a lot of, lot of pressure. Trust me, now. It takes a long time to get to know somebody. You don't know them until you live with them for a while, and that's why it's a good idea to wait till you think about having children.

Aaron: Okay. Well, I was just throwing it out there. If she's not ready, fine. But when she is, I'm going for it.

[Emma chuckles]

Alison: No, I canít. I can't, we can't! I don't even know what I'm doing here.

Chris: No one forced you to come.

Alison: I know that.

Chris: Why did you, then?

Alison: I wanted to see Morty. Okay, this is stupid! I don't know what I am doing!

Chris: Yes, you do. So do I. We're doing what we want. What we've wanted since we first ran into each other after all those years apart.

Alison: That was forever ago.

Chris: You are adorable.

Alison: I don't know why you've always acted like I'm too young for you.

Chris: I was scared what I fell for you. I've done a lot of stupid things over the years because of that fear.

Alison: You're not the only one.

Chris: I don't know why we never got it right the first time, but, finally, after all this time, we both know what we want.

Alison: And it's too late.

Jack: Dallas, this should make your day.

Dallas: Too bad it's not making yours.

Jack: As long as we find my cousin, that's all that matters to me.

Dallas: All right, let's go. I got it from here.

Jack: Hey, hey, hey, hey. You worked him over enough. Let Dallas have a shot at him.

Paul: I'm not gonna just sit around while that guy asks him the same stupid questions over and over.

Jack: You don't have a choice. Listen, we are gonna find James, and, this time, I swear to you, he will stay found.

[Shower running]

[Shower stops]

Holden: I like these pink pants. I can wear pink.

Lily: You found them.

Holden: I did. I'm sorry. I didn't expect you to be out of the shower so soon.

Lily: I usually take forever, right? I didn't want you to have to wait that long.

Holden: Thanks.

Lily: I'm also exhausted, all of a sudden. I thought, if I stayed in there too long, I might collapse. I think I'm just gonna lie down while you take your shower.

Holden: That's a good idea. Lily -- thanks for keeping these.

Emma: Smell good!

Aaron: Perfect timing! We're just eating cookies and milk!

Emma: Alison, come join us. They're all -- there's plenty here.

Alison: Thank you, but I'm not hungry. Can I see you for a minute in private?

Aaron: Yeah. Is everything okay?

Alison: Yeah, everything's great.

Emma: Okay. I think they're cool enough to eat now.

Aaron: Hey, save me some!

Faith: Nice.

Emma: There we go.

Natalie: I bet I know what they're gonna do.

Faith: Do not.

Natalie: Yes, I do. They're married.

Ethan: What do married people do?

Emma: Well, never mind. You just eat your cookies now.

Alison: Here. Help me get these off the bed.

Aaron: Whoa! What's gotten into you?

Alison: I want to make a baby.

Aaron: You do?

Alison: Now.

Jack: What are you doing here? I thought you wanted nothing more to do with this guy.

Bonnie: I don't, but I helped him get arrested, and I want to see him when he gets carted off.

Jack: Hey, where are you going?

Paul: Meg could be halfway around the world right now, and I want to know what he's saying.

Jack: Time out. You go in there, and you're gonna do more harm --

Paul: All the times that Derek was stalking Meg, the Lakeview. He showed up at my house. He was working for James that whole time! He was reporting back to James, and I let that happen!

Jack: Don't do this to yourself. That's exactly what your father wants you to do.

Paul: You remember when you said that I had Stenbeck blood running through my veins?

Jack: I was trying to get Derek to talk.

Paul: No, Jack. You were right. You were right. I've dealt it my whole life. It's there, and I know it. And if I saw James right now, I'd tear him apart with my bare hands, and I wouldn't have a second thought!

Paul: Did he say anything about Meg?

Dallas: I'm sorry.

Jack: What did he say?

Dallas: Just that he wants to speak to Bonnie.

Bonnie: Me? Why?

Dallas: I don't know. I don't have a clue.

Bonnie: What do you think, Jack?

Jack: Obviously, you're his chosen confessor.

Bonnie: Well, I'm not sure that I want to be.

Paul: Bonnie, none of us want to be anything. We don't want to be here!

Bonnie: Okay.

Paul: Look, if getting this lowlife to talk will save Meg --

Bonnie: All right. All right, fine. I will go see what he wants. You want to see me?

Derek: Yeah. Well, I shouldnít. After the way you set me up.

Bonnie: I'm out of here.

Derek: I want you to be my lawyer.

Lily: Please don't go.

Bonnie: Working for Stenbeck has obviously warped your mind.

Derek: Look, look, look. I need a lawyer, and you're a good one.

Bonnie: Oh, I don't practice anymore.

Derek: Did you resign from the bar?

Bonnie: No.

Derek: Then you could practice if you wanted to.

Bonnie: What, for you?

Derek: Why not?

Bonnie: Well, aside from the fact that I cannot stand the sight of you, there's one slight conflict of interest.

Derek: Come on! Because we went out a few times?

Bonnie: Oh, no! Because I'm a victim of the crime that you committed and I could have you put away if I wanted to.

Derek: Yeah, but you wouldn't do that.

Bonnie: Oh, wouldn't I?

Derek: No, because a good lawyer would have to give me the best defense possible, and I think you're that good.

Bonnie: Well, that's too bad you'll never find out.

Aaron: Slow down, Ali! Whoo!

Alison: What? I thought this was what you wanted.

Aaron: No, no, no, no. Believe me, this is what I want. I just want to know what made you change your mind.

Alison: What difference does it make?

Aaron: Did something happen?

Alison: Why would you think that?

Aaron: I don't know. When I brought the whole idea about having kids up earlier, it's like it was too soon to talk about it.

Alison: So, I changed my mind. Is there a problem with that?

Aaron: Just that some people say it would make more sense to wait.

Alison: Well, I don't believe this. Now you're on the fence?

Aaron: No, no, no. Ali, I'm not on the fence. Just, I feel bad. I feel like I pressured you.

Alison: Well, I don't get it. I thought a baby was what you really wanted.

Aaron: I do.

Alison: Then stop talking and make love to me.

Chris: What do we got?

Nurse: Weren't you here this morning?

Chris: What about it?

Nurse: I thought you'd be done for the day.

Chris: I was. Plans fell through. Might as well do somebody some good.

Jack: Okay, Dallas has everything under control here. Listen, I need to take off and take care of some loose ends on my end before we kick this operation into high gear.

Paul: Hey, where are you going?

Jack: Listen to me, we'll reconnect later, and you can tell me what Derek wanted with Bonnie.

Paul: Don't take long.

Jack: I wonít. In the meantime, you stay away from Coburn. You go after him in here, you'll wind up in the cell right next to his.

Dallas: Jack was right about that cell, you know.

Paul: What did he say?

Bonnie: The man is delusional.

Dallas: How so?

Bonnie: He wants me to represent him.

Dallas: He's got nerve. I'll give him that. Okay.

Bonnie: I told him to forget it.

Paul: Tell him you'll do it. I'm serious.

Bonnie: You're as crazy as he is. Look, I did my part. I'm out of here.

Paul: Bonnie, please, please.

Bonnie: Look, I know you'll do anything to save Meg, but I don't really care --

Paul: You might be my only shot at doing that. Look, if he is gonna say anything at all, isn't he more likely to say it to his lawyer? Please, I'm begging you. Please don't walk away.

Lily: You must be exhausted, too.

Holden: I'm getting there.

Lily: Come lie down here beside me.

Holden: You are so beautiful. What? What is it?

Lily: I'm just so happy you're home.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Chris: Us and no one else.

Barbara: I didn't want to upset you any more, but I do believe your father is through testing you. In fact, I think he intends not to bring Meg back at all.

Janet: But there's a part of you that will always belong to Carly.
