Margo: You haven't heard of mischief night? I mean, come on. They're just kids. You don't arrest them unless they do something really, really, really stupid.

Rookie #1: We didn't know.

Margo: How long have you been on the force?

Rookie #2: Nine months.

Margo: Yeah, well, if you don't know the difference between mischief night and the St. Valentine's Day massacre, you're not going to make a year. What? Is there a problem?

Rookie #1: What's the St. Valentine's Day massacre?

Margo: When Al Capone’s guys took out five gangsters and took control of Chicago?

Rookie #2: Al Capone?

Margo: Oh, my God, you don't know who Al Capone is? He's just the biggest mobster of the century. The last century. You know what, why don't you rent "The Untouchables?"

Rookie #1: Could we stream it?

Margo: Yeah, you can stream it. Just not here when you're on duty. And please, just give the kids a break, okay? Go, go, get, go. Go away, go away. What are you so cheerful about?

Tom: Well, aside from your little history lesson, you know that Casey’s at a party tonight. He's probably going to be out till dawn.

Margo: Yeah, so?

Tom: Well, we got the house to ourselves. We can turn the lights down, put on some jazz, stream a little romantic video.

Margo: Do you actually know what that is?

Tom: Hell no.

Margo: No. Listen, we can't do anything unless I feed myself. I'm starving.

Tom: That's a good idea. You're gonna need your energy.

Margo: What? What are you -- why, what's up? What's going on?

Tom: You didn't hear?

Margo: Huh?

Tom: It's mischief night.

Casey: Hey, guys. You sure you haven't seen my costume? I paid for that. I really, really need to find it.

Joel: Come on, dude, one more round.

Casey: Done. Done. Hey, where's your other girlfriend?

Kevin: What girlfriend?

Casey: The doc chick you were with all night.

Kevin: She's not my girlfriend. I was just talking to her.

Casey: Do you know where she is?

Kevin: Casey, I have no idea.

Casey: Okay. Sorry to bother you. You know. I can vouch for him. There's no other girlfriend.

Kevin: Are you done? Or do you got more stuff to say?

Casey: I'm just trying to help out, bro.

Alison: Okay, I don't care if this is mischief night, this isn't funny. What are you doing? Get this thing off me!

Mark: Chill, or you'll wreck the surprise.

Alison: Who are you? Where the hell are you taking me?

Mark: You'll find out.

Alison: What is this? What do you want?

Mark: Don't worry, we're not going to hurt you.

Alison: Why did you bring me here?

Mark: Well, it's an honor to meet such a big star like you.

Alison: What are you talking about?

Mark: We all saw your movie. We thought you were great. We were hoping you'd give us an autograph.

Guy #1: Yeah, sign any body part you want.

Alison: This isn't funny! Who are you?

Mark: Isn't it obvious? We're your biggest fans.

Liberty: How do I look?

Parker: You look great.

Liberty: No, I meant the costume.

Parker: Yeah, so did I.

Liberty: Parker, is anybody home?

Parker: Yeah, my mom and my sister. Why?

Liberty: That's it? Not like the whole high school marching band?

Parker: Yeah, well, they're in the kitchen. They can't hear us, all right?

Liberty: Okay.

Jack: Hey, what is going on in here?

Liberty: Nothing.

Parker: Absolutely nothing.

Liberty: Hi, Mom.

Janet: Oh, you're so cute. Doesn't she look adorable in this costume?

Jack: She does.

Janet: I love it. I know, I'm just so happy, what can I say?

Carly: Hello.

Janet: Hi.

Carly: I thought I heard voices out here. What's up?

Parker: Yeah, that's a great question.

Jack: Actually, we need to talk to you a minute. In private.

Parker: Why don't we go up to my room?

Carly: No.

Jack: No.

Janet: No.

Liberty: We'll go outside.

Carly: Okay, so, what's the big mystery?

Janet: Well, it's official. We're engaged. And it wouldn't have happened without you. I know we've had our rocky moments, and I would be lying to you if I said I wasn't still worried that you were in Jack's life, but you've been so nice to me, most of the time, and generous, usually, and since we're going to be family almost, I just want you to know that I appreciate just about everything you've done.

Carly: Well, thank you, mostly.

[Laughter]

Jack: Should we tell the kids?

Carly: Yeah, sure. J.J.'s at a friend's house, but I'll get Sage, okay?

Jack: Guys? Hey, yeah. Come on in.

Parker: Where's Mom?

Sage: She said she'd stay in there to give you some privacy.

Parker: Yeah, for what?

Sage: I don't know.

Jack: There's something very important that Janet and I would like to tell you.

Parker: Yeah, you guys are getting married.

Liberty: We all know I have self-control issues, sorry.

Sage: It's true?

Jack: Yes, Sage, it is.

Sage: Does Mommy know?

Jack: We just told her, yes. She's very excited for us. And we hope that you will be, too. From the very first day I met Janet, she's made me happy, guys. She's a great mom. She's a tremendous cook and a very smart lady. And I love her very much. I hope some day you will grow to love her as much as I do, and make Janet and Liberty feel like they are a part of this family.

Parker: Can we go now?

Jack: I thought we'd all go out and celebrate.

Liberty: Yeah.

Parker: Yeah, whatever. You coming?

Liberty: Yeah, okay. Well, I think that they make a pretty great couple. I mean, my mom is always talking about finding the perfect guy. I can't believe it's your dad. How wild is that?

Parker: It's a nightmare.

Liberty: Why?

Parker: You heard them. We're going to be family.

Liberty: Yeah, I know. I kind of like it.

Parker: You're not totally creeped out?

Liberty: No. Why?

Parker: Well, you're going to be my stepsister. It may not be blood, but still, that makes things --

Liberty: Different.

Parker: No, horrible. Liberty, think about it.

Liberty: I have thought about it. I thought about it. I kind of like it. I don't mind it.

Janet: Sage, I want you and your brothers to know how much I love your dad. And I am going to try and make him happy, no matter what. You want to see the ring? It's pretty, huh? Ooh, shiny. Hey, Sage, you and I, let's talk girl-to-girl, huh? Shall we? Just you and me. Okay. I know you love your mom, and I am not trying to replace her, I promise. Because I'm already Liberty's mom, and that's just enough for me, because she's a handful, you know what I'm saying? Huh? Mm-hmm. Okay, listen, what's really happening here is now you're going to have three parents instead of just two. And you know what the best thing about having an extra parent is?

Sage: No.

Janet: Well, say you want something really, really bad, like a new dress or a cool pair of shoes or a piercing, and Mom and Dad say no. Well, you know what, here's what you do. You come to me. I take you to the mall and I buy it for you. Huh? See, that's the cool thing about an extra parent. How's that sound? Right, right? I draw the line at tattoos, though.

Carly: All right, who's up for some lemonade?

Jack: Sounds good.

Sage: Mom?

Carly: Yeah?

Sage: Why are you letting this happen?

Casey: Can I talk to you?

Kevin: Why?

Casey: It's personal.

Kevin: All right, don't go anywhere.

Casey: Who's the girl?

Kevin: I don't know her name yet.

Casey: So you just blew off the other girl?

Kevin: Why are you so interested in my social life?

Casey: I thought she was hot, okay?

Kevin: She is.

Casey: No, I'm talking about the other girl. The doctor. Do you know where she is?

Kevin: Not a clue. She probably went home with someone else. You know, from what I hear, she doesn't like to fly solo too often.

Casey: Yeah, that's why I'm asking.

Kevin: All right, you'll get your shot.

Casey: Let's hope so, right? Later, man.

Alison: You guys are making a big mistake.

Mark: We don't think so.

Alison: Everyone says I look like this girl in this porn movie. I don't know, I have never seen it. But if you think that is who I am, then you're wrong.

Mark: Well, why don't we play it and find out? Turn it on.

Alison: See? That's not me.

Mark: Sure looks like you.

[Cell phone ringing]

Mark: I don't think so.

Alison: That has got to be my boyfriend. If I don't answer, he's going to know something's wrong.

Mark: His name's Casey?

Alison: That's right. He's a cop.

Mark: Nice try, but Casey Hughes is no cop.

Alison: Who's Casey Hughes?

Mark: We know who you are, and what you've been doing. We saw you with Hughes and the fairy boys.

Alison: This is about the election?

Mark: What election?

Alison: You screwed up. You do anything to me now, and the cops'll know how to find you.

Mark: No, we're not going to do anything to you. You're going to do it to us. It's not like you haven't done it before.

Alison: I told you, that isn't me.

Mark: No, I think we need more evidence. Let's see all of you. Then we'll decide.

Alison: No, please, just let me go. I swear I will not say anything. I promise I'll forget this every happened.

Mark: No, I don't think so. We want you to do what you did in that movie. Only live and in person. It out.

Guy #1: Let's get this party started.

Alison: Just stay away from me!

Guy #1: Bitch!

Guy #2: Take your damn clothes off!

Mark: Here. Go slow. Like a stripper. To the music!

Alison: No, I can't! Please!

Mark: That's it, Honey. Game over. It's showtime!

Alison: No --

Mark: Do it! Nice! Now the pants.

Alison: Okay? Have you had your fun?

Mark: You got to learn to relax, girl. We're going to be here a while.

Margo: Hey -- you know what? Asking me out on a date was the best idea you've had in a long time.

Tom: Well, we got a lot to celebrate.

Margo: Why, what's that?

Tom: It's almost Halloween. Nobody's burned down the town yet.

Margo: There you go. Party on.

Tom: We're healthy. Casey's healthy.

Margo: And Emily is finally out of his life.

Tom: And nobody had to get killed to accomplish that.

Margo: I told you, I wasn't really going to shoot her. You know, it is amazing that Emily got out so quickly. It would have been the perfect way for Casey to stick it to us.

Tom: Yeah, but maybe he just doesn't feel the need to rebel anymore. You know, maybe annoying us is enough.

Margo: That's great. I'll take that in a heartbeat.

Tom: Well, here's to annoying children.

Margo: Oh, there ya go.

Tom: So, what do you think about this election campaign?

Margo: I think it's great that he's involved in something positive. He's going to classes. He's involved on campus.

Tom: Staying out of trouble. Think maybe he's growing up?

Margo: Let's not go that far.

Casey: Come on, Ali, you've got to be home by now. Hey, Ali, it's me. Um, I know I've been a pain lately, but I just talked to Kevin and he was acting really weird. Did something happen? Is that why you split? Just call me back, so I know you're all right, and I'll stop calling, okay? I promise.

Janet: Do you want to help me with these glasses, Sage?

Sage: No, thank you.

Janet: Oh, great! Well, I get to have all the fun myself.

Jack: Thank you. Honey, you know how much I love you, right? I know you're upset, but how many times -- how many times did your mother and I tell you that we weren't getting back together. Did you not believe us?

Sage: I don't know.

Jack: Listen, all I ask is that you give Janet a chance. She's going to be a big part of my life from now on. And yours, too.

Carly: I think it might be fun to have somebody like Liberty to take your side against those boys.

Sage: I guess.

Carly: Sweetheart, why don't you go into the kitchen and tell Janet you've changed your mind, and help her with those glasses, huh?

Sage: Do I have to?

Jack: No.

Carly: But we'd like you to.

Jack: Thank you.

Carly: You got to give the kid credit. She doesn't give up.

Jack: Wonder where she gets that from?

Janet: Hey, Sage, when you come to our house for dinner, I promise you, you'll get to do the dishes every time. Okay, maybe not so much. Um, could you help me with these, please? Ah, thank you, thank you. There you go. This one. Thank you. Thank you. All right. Hey, listen, I'm not going to push you. Okay? I just want you to know that I love your daddy, and I'm going to make him very happy. Thanks for helping me out.

Liberty: Please, just look at me. Please, look at me. No matter what happens, you're going to be so special to me.

Parker: Yeah, but you don't love me.

Liberty: I'm 16 -- and you're younger than me.

Parker: And I embarrass you?

Liberty: No. You don't embarrass me. We're just in different grades, and we have different friends, and I'm probably going to go to a different college --

Parker: We don't have to!

Liberty: That -- I don't know, that's change. And that's probably not a bad thing. And even if we grow to be these totally different people when we do, who knows how we'd feel about each other then?

Parker: Well, I do.

Liberty: You're not making this easy.

Parker: Why should I? You're breaking up with me!

Liberty: No, I'm not. That's the point. We're going to be family now. And we'll be together for good.

Parker: Yeah, well, I don't want this to be a family thing!

Liberty: Well, that's what it has to be.

Parker: No, it's because it's what you want it to be! Well, it's not what I want -- I mean, this is totally you!

Jack: Hey, everything okay out here?

Parker: No, everything's not okay! Everything sucks! Thanks to you!

Kevin: You want to get out of here? Go someplace private?

Mark: Splitting?

Kevin: Where you been?

Mark: Just taking care of a problem.

Kevin: And?

Mark: We're cool.

Kevin: All right, great. I'll see you tomorrow.

Alison: Casey!

Casey: Ali. Are you okay? Here, put this on. Are you hurt? Are you sure? Come on, let's get you out of here.

Jeff: Fang come beautiful.

Casey: They fit?

Alison: Uh, they're fine. Thanks. Yes. Thank you for everything. I don't know what I would've done if you hadn't found me. I would've had to go to Al's in my underwear.

Casey: We should call my mom.

Alison: No, she hates me already.

Casey: No, she doesn't.

Alison: I'm Emily’s sister. She hates my whole family.

Casey: This has nothing to do with that. She's not going to blame you for what those creeps did.

Alison: Please, just leave the cops out of this. Okay?

Casey: Why don't you tell me what happened?

Alison: It was awful.

Casey: Did they -- did they hurt you?

Alison: Not physically, no.

Casey: Did they do anything else?

Alison: They kept saying they were going to, but they never did.

Casey: So what would they do this?

Alison: I don't know. And they were playing one of my movies. But they kept saying they wanted to do the same stuff to me.

Casey: But they didn't, right?

Alison: No.

Casey: But why then? Why?

Alison: He said he knew who I was. And what I was up to.

Casey: He said that? About you spying on Kevin? But Kevin was at Yo’s the whole time. It must've been his boys.

Alison: I don't know. I never saw their faces.

Casey: Do you remember their voices?

Alison: Maybe.

Casey: How about the room? Do you remember what the room looked like?

Alison: Um, I think it was a dorm. The walls were painted blue. Cinderblock. And I could hear traffic outside.

Casey: Slaughter hall. That's on the main road into campus. Yes, it has blue -- blue walls. Yes.

Alison: The guy who was in charge, he had a key.

Casey: He brought you to his own dorm room?

Alison: I don't know.

Casey: Well, if we can find him. Yes.

Alison: Okay, then, let's go.

Casey: No, wait! No, no, we'll go tomorrow. You need to get your rest.

Alison: No, I need to go while it's still fresh in my mind.

Casey: Are you sure? The cops are a lot better at this.

Alison: No! Please!

Casey: Okay, I'll get my keys. I'm sorry this happened.

Alison: It's not your fault.

Casey: I was the one who asked you to spy on Kevin. I'm sorry.

Alison: Thanks, Casey.

Margo: Oh, hi --

Alison: I'm waiting for Casey.

Margo: He's here?

Alison: He's upstairs.

Casey: Hey! Uh, we'll see you later.

Margo: You're going back out?

Casey: Another party.

Alison: Bye.

Margo: Bye. Another party, another Stewart.

Tom: Oh, come on. They're just friends.

Margo: She was wearing his clothes.

Tom: You sure? You're sure.

Margo: So much for staying out of trouble.

Jack: You don't want to be found, you better pick a different hideout.

Parker: I'm not hiding.

Jack: Good.

Parker: Why are you here?

Jack: Liberty told me what happened.

Parker: She blew me off because you're marrying her mom.

Jack: That's not quite how she put it. She's upset, Parker.

Parker: Look, I know it's weird. But she's not my real sister. And I don't understand why we have to have a completely new relationship just because you do?

Jack: Okay, look, I know you don't want to hear this --

Parker: When has that ever stopped you?

Jack: You're young. Both of you are young. And you guys are going to go through like ten different identities before you figure out which one you want to keep.

Parker: That's exactly what she said. Does that make her more mature than me?

Jack: Let me ask you this. Are you the Parker Snyder you want to be for the rest of your life right now? All I'm saying is she probably feels the same way. But if you two end up wanting to be together, there's nothing that can stop you. Other than the fact that she's older and wiser. I'm sorry I made things complicated for you. I didn't plan it that way.

Parker: Can I ask you something?

Jack: Sure.

Parker: This whole thing with Janet -- is it going to work? Or is Mom just going to mess it up like always?

Janet: Parker will come around. Okay?

Liberty: I mean, I hope so. But what about when you and Jack get married and we spend the night at the same time at the house.

Janet: Okay. All right. Listen, we will make sure that doesn't happen. We'll do alternating nights for both of you.

Liberty: Awesome. Good. Because the idea of sharing a bathroom with him is like all kinds of disturbing.

Janet: Do you think Jack's kids will ever stop hating me?

Liberty: You gotta give them a little time, you know? Sage really wanted her mom and dad to get back together. And Parker was not thinking about you at a. So, I just think once they get to know you they'll have to love you as much as I do.

Janet: Oh, that's a nice thing to say.

Liberty: Well, it's true.

Janet: How long do you think it'll take?

Liberty: Ten years, tops.

Janet: That's funny! I ought to give you a nice --

Liberty: Dude -- where's your -- where's your engagement ring?

Janet: Oh my God! It's gone!

Carly: How about a game of monopoly? Life? Parcheesi? You found him.

Jack: Wasn't hard. I'll see you later.

Carly: Would you like to talk?

Parker: Not really.

Carly: Would you like to play a board game with us?

Parker: Even less.

Carly: How about you, Sage? Would you like to talk?

Sage: Definitely not.

Carly: Well, then, how about you just listen, huh? Sweetheart, I know that you got your hopes up because Daddy and I have been getting along lately. I think I got my hopes up, too. But we were both wrong. Daddy and I are just not going to get back together.

Sage: You always tell us never to give up.

Carly: I know. Now, I guess I'm telling you to be realistic. The point is -- you have to be able to recognize when something that you really want just is not going to happen.

Sage: Well, they're not married yet. What if she did something that made dad really mad?

Carly: Sage, what do you know that I don't?

Casey: This is the last floor.

Alison: I can't tell.

Casey: It's okay.

Alison: Well, they had that thing over my face the whole time. I couldn't see anything.

Casey: Close your eyes.

Alison: What?

Casey: Close your eyes. Maybe you'll remember the smell, or something you heard.

Alison: Okay. It still smells the same. Beer and some vomit.

Casey: Yes, every dorm smells like that. Come on.

Alison: I guess. Wait. That music. That's what they were playing.

Casey: You sure?

Alison: I'll never forget it.

Casey: Isn't this a surprise.

Mark: Stop it! What are you doing?

Casey: What's the matter, man? You can only beat up on a girl?

Mark: What are you talking about?

Alison: Casey! Stop!

Security guard: Break it up! Break it up!

Casey: Come on, man! It's him!

Mark: He attacked me! He's crazy! I want him arrested! You're going back to jail loser!

Security guard: You reside in this dorm?

Casey: No. No.

Security guard: Then you're coming with me.

Casey: What?

Margo: Oh, that's the station. Casey set up special ringtones.

Tom: So, they'll leave a message. The mayor's car probably got egged, or something.

Margo: Oh, I can only hope. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Hughes. What? Oh -- yes, I'll be right down. Casey beat somebody up again. A student. And the campus security brought him in, and he's under arrest again.

Tom: That's a violation of his parole. He could go back to prison.

Margo: Yeah, well that didn't take long.

Liberty: Hey, Mom -- it's not in the car.

Janet: It has to be here! I haven't been to many places today!

Liberty: I'll get it. Who is it?

Jack: It's Jack.

Janet: Oh, great. Could he have picked a worse time?

Liberty: It's okay --

Janet: Not a word about this! It is not okay!

Liberty: Mom --

Janet: Hey, do you want those new shoes I promised you?

Liberty: He'll have to beat it out of me. Hello, Uncle Jack. Long time, no see!

Jack: Hello there, Liberty. Hey. What's wrong?

Janet: Nothing.

Jack: Nothing? You look like you lost your best friend.

Janet: I did. The ring! I lost the ring!

Liberty: I want it on the record that I was not the one who cracked.

Janet: Oh, I'm so sorry. I know you'll never forgive me, and I don't blame you. No wonder your kids hate me.

Jack: No -- okay, let's slow down for a second. My kids don't hate you. They just need to get used to the idea that we're getting married.

Janet: No, we're not getting married, because I don't have a ring!

Jack: We'll find the ring.

Janet: What if we don't?

Jack: We will! It's -- who cares -- it's just a ring!

Janet: No, it's not. It's an omen. It's an omen that this whole thing is wrong. We should call off the wedding before I ruin your life and your children like I ruined mine!

Liberty: Excuse me?

Jack: No, hold on a second. Let's slow down, okay? Slow down. We will find the ring. And you might as well stop trying to talk me out of marrying you, because it's not going to work. You're stuck with me, lady. Whether --

[Jack laughs]

Jack: Whether you like it or not. Mmm.

Carly: Chocolate chip? I made them this morning.

Sage: No thanks.

Carly: Come on Sage, have one. I know they're your favorite.

Sage: I'm not hungry.

Carly: Sage, you have to stop hoping that your dad's not going to marry Janet. He's going to marry Janet. They love each other, and they want to be together. And we should be happy for them.

Sage: We'll see.

Carly: What have you got in your hand?

Sage: Nothing.

Carly: Sage. Show me what's in your hand. Now.

[Carly gasps]

Carly: Sage! Where did you get this?

Sage: From Janet.

Carly: How?

Sage: Well, it fell off in her glove and she didn't notice.

Carly: Why didn't you tell her?

Sage: Because Daddy hates when we lose stuff.

Carly: So you thought if she had to tell him that she lost her ring --

Sage: He would be really mad.

Carly: And not marry her. Sage, I know you know how wrong this is. And you know what else, it's not going to work.

Mark: He's an animal! He just started hitting me for no reason!

Casey: Are you serious?

Margo: What is going on?

Casey: This lowlife here kidnapped Ali.

Mark: Prove it! I have witnesses, he doesn't!

Casey: You're so pathetic!

Mark: He's not even denying it!

Casey: Because I'd do it again, right now --

Tom: Yo, yo -- shut up! Is he being charged?

Mark: He better be!

Margo: What's your name?

Mark: Mark Vero.

Margo: Did you get his statement?

Rookie #1: Not yet.

Margo: How'd you make the arrest?

Rookie #2: We got the call from campus security. They saw him beating up Vero. And so did these guys.

Mark: Are you going to do your job now?

Margo: Get him out of here.

Mark: I want to press charges!

Margo: You can come back in the morning, and we'll get your statement along with everybody else. Go on. You. Tell me what happened.

Casey: They kidnapped Ali. They blindfolded her and dragged her back to their dorm room.

Margo: Is that true? You think you can you identify any of the perps?

Alison: They wore masks.

Casey: It was them. She led me right to Vero’s room -- dorm room.

Margo: And then you went right in and beat him up?

Casey: They threatened to rape her!

Margo: Did they rape you?

Alison: No.

Casey: They did make her take off all of her clothes, though.

Margo: Oh, Casey. Well, then what happened?

Alison: And then they threw me against the wall. And I hit my head.

Margo: Ali, did you see any of their faces?

Alison: They had masks on the whole time.

Margo: Is there any chance you could identify any of them in a lineup?

Alison: I don't know. I don't think so --

Casey: Mom. Mom, it was them! Vero is working for Kevin, you know, for his campaign? She was trying to get some information about them, you know, for Luke.

Margo: Were you?

Casey: Yes. I talked her into it!

Margo: How come I don't find that hard to believe?

Casey: Mom, the point is, it was them! Do you see what kind of morons they are, they brought her back to their dorm room.

Margo: And Casey, what kind of moron are you, to violate your parole like this? You know what's going to happen now?

Casey: Yes, it can get revoked.

Margo: And you go back to prison.

Alison: But that's not fair! He only did it because of what they did to me!

Margo: No, he did it because he never thinks before he takes any action! You'll have plenty of time to think now, won't you, when you serve your full sentence?

Jack: Okay, wait a second, it didn't just disappear. Where did you go after Carly’s?

Liberty: Here.

Jack: And you searched the house?

Janet: We tore it apart! We tore apart the car, too!

[Door bell rings]

Liberty: Oh, I'll get it. More volunteers for the search party, yeah!

Jack: Great, great, great, great, great. Hey. Relax, its okay. It's okay. Relax.

Liberty: Hi.

Carly: Hi!

Jack: What's wrong?

Carly: Oh, I thought that someone might be looking for this.

[Janet gasps]

Janet: Oh my God!

Jack: There you go!

Janet: You found it! Thank you so much! Where did you find it?

Carly: In one of the other gloves there that you were using when you did the dishes.

Janet: Why didn't I think of that?

Carly: I knew you would be frantic.

Liberty: You have no idea, Carly.

Janet: Wow. I hadn't found it, I don't know what I would've done. I probably would've committed hari-kari, or something.

Carly: Well, I'm certainly glad that I got here in time, then.

Jack: Yeah. Thank you.

Carly: Oh, my pleasure.

Liberty: Bye.

Janet: Would you -- put it back on for me, please?

[Jack laughs]

Jack: I'd be happy to.

Janet: Oh.

Liberty: It's so pretty. Oh my God.

Janet: Ahh!

Jack: There you are.

Alison: Margo, Casey was just defending me. I may not be able to swear to it in court but I know it was them. They knew me, they knew about the movies I made, and they knew what I was doing now for Luke’s campaign. And Mark is the other candidate's campaign manager. And that can't all be just a coincidence.

Margo: Look, I don't doubt that it happened, and I'm sure it was terrifying --

Casey: Yes, then why am I being treated like the bad guy, huh?

Margo: Because they have proof, and you don’t.

Casey: That -- is bogus!

Alison: Oh, so you can't do anything to them?

Margo: Not without evidence. Listen, why don't you go home, and you sleep on this, and maybe in the morning, you can tell me something that I can use.

Alison: Well, what happens to Casey?

Margo: Casey stays here for the night. We call his P.O. in the morning.

Casey: You're kidding, Mom!

Margo: No, Casey, I am not kidding you. We'll have a uniformed officer take you home.

Alison: Thank you for everything, Casey.

Margo: What the hell were you thinking?

Casey: That my friend was kidnapped, threatened and humiliated, and I'm the one getting arrested!

Mark: Pretty hot, huh?

Kevin: What, have you lost your mind?

Mark: What?

Kevin: That's evidence, Mark! Anybody sees that, you're going to jail. Look, you got to get rid of that, now!

Casey: You should've seen Ali the way I found her. They dumped her in Old Town without any clothes on. For God's sake, Mom -- that's why I took her home and gave her some sweats.

Margo: And then when you saw us come in, you didn't -- you decided not to tell us?

Casey: She asked me not to.

Margo: Why?

Casey: She knows how you feel about Emily. She was afraid that you would think she was another crazy Stewart woman.

Tom: Oh, come on. You know that's not fair.

Margo: Casey, you know how I feel about abused women! You think I would just disregard Alison because her last name is Stewart?

Casey: I don't know what you would've done.

Margo: So instead of coming to us, you decide it's better to violate the terms of your parole, and go in, and beat this guy up?

Casey: Okay, I didn't think it that far in advance.

Margo: No, you didn't think it through at all, Casey. Instead, you just let your father and me clean up your messes, don't you? I need a uniform in here. Put him in a cell.

Casey: Unbelievable. I don't believe this.

Margo: Casey, go with the officer, now!

Casey: Mom --

Jack: I'm sorry for the way my kids reacted tonight.

Janet: Oh, come on, they were fine.

Jack: No, no, they weren’t. They weren’t. You don't deserve to be treated like that.

Janet: Sage is young. She doesn't understand.

Jack: What's Parker's excuse?

Janet: His girlfriend's about to become his sister?

[Janet laughs]

Jack: Stepsister.

Janet: Almost as bad.

Jack: You're a lot more understanding than I am, though. And I promise you, I promise you, they'll come around.

Janet: Well then, I'm not worried. Because when Jack Snyder makes a promise, he keeps it.

Carly: I see you changed your mind about playing games. Thank you for entertaining your sister. Okay you guys, listen up, please. I know this news is hard to take, for a lot of reasons. But we all love your father, and we want him to be happy, and he's happy with Janet. I'm not going to let you ruin it, just because he's not doing what you want him to. Have I made myself clear? Then go do your homework.

Sage: I don't have any homework.

Carly: Well then, go to bed.

Parker: I don't believe you.

Carly: What?

Parker: That you want Dad to be happy with Janet. You can say it as many times as you want, but we both know that it's a lie.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Kevin: Drop out of the race.

Luke: Are you serious?

Kevin: You and I both know you're not winning this thing.

Mark: I'd like to file charges for assault and battery.

Alison: Casey, he just came to my rescue.

Margo: How far are you willing to go to help him out?

Paul: It's our baby.

Meg: Yeah, I know.

Dusty: You want to come after me? Here I am.
