Emily: Hey. What are you doing here? Shouldn't you be at work?

Alison: Um, I called in sick.

Emily: Really? That's not like you. What's going on?

Alison: Nothing.

Emily: Ali, look at me. What's going on? You look upset. Tell me.

Alison: I really don't want to get into it again, all right?

Emily: No, it's not all right. I love you, Honey. You can't just sit here looking like death warmed over and expect me to just walk away. What's got you so upset?

Margo: All right, great, thanks. I'll take it from here. So, how are you doing?

Casey: I love it here. Not as nice as Statesville, though, right?

Margo: Look, I'm sorry that you had to stay the night.

Casey: Just doing your job.

Margo: You got a problem with that, Casey? Do you see any reason why I should treat you any differently than anybody else --?

Casey: I'm sorry. I don't think it's a crime to defend a woman who's being attacked by a bunch of lowlifes. You might call them "Frat boys" or whatever, but they're a bunch of thugs. So, if anyone should be arrested here, it's them.

Margo: I'm going to be really clear about this. You got into not just a fight, Casey, but a drunken brawl --

Casey: A drunken --

Margo: You went after this guy, you didn't even have any evidence that he attacked Alison --

Casey: We know -- are you kidding me?

Margo: She couldn't positively id one of them -- not one of them. Because they were wearing masks.

Casey: We know it was them, Mom.

Margo: And can you present that evidence to a judge?

Casey: Ali led me straight to Mark Veroís room. Mark, who happened to be the campaign manager for the guy who's running against our friend. This was retaliation, Mom. Him and his goons thought -- they should punish Ali because she was on the wrong camp.

Margo: I'm really sorry, Casey. But there's no proof. It's your word against his.

Casey: So, what are we going to do?

Margo: Well, your father has been on the phone all morning with your parole officer. And he thinks he's found a way around this, to keep it off of your permanent record.

Casey: How?

Margo: Well, this Vero hasn't come into file any charges, so if I can get this reduced to a misdemeanor, then the parole officer is willing to look the other way.

Casey: I don't think that's going to happen.

Cop: Can I help you?

Mark: Yeah. I would like to file charges for assault and battery.

Kevin: Hey.

Luke: What? No mask?

Kevin: Hey, I didn't want to start anything. I just came to grab something.

Luke: Oh, grab something? Like your boys grabbed Alison Stewart last night?

Kevin: All right, hold on, Luke, all right --

Luke: Look, I understand you're running a smear campaign against me online. I'm your opponent. I should expect that. But to go after one of my friends? To take her to some dorm room and -- I didn't think you were capable of that, Kevin.

Meg: Terri, hey, can you let Dr. Schiller know that I'm here for my appointment?

Nurse: Absolutely. I know she's expecting you.

Meg: Great. Thank you.

Paul: Aren't you missing something?

Meg: What's that?

Paul: Derek Coburn, your bodyguard.

Meg: You know, he doesn't have to take me to my doctor's appointments.

Paul: No, all he has to do is stop me from bothering you.

Meg: What am I supposed to say to that?

Paul: I don't know. You're right. I deserve it.

Meg: I'm not trying to punish you, Paul. I'm just trying to do what's best for the baby.

Paul: Our baby, right? Can I ask you something?

Meg: What?

Paul: Are you really afraid of me?

Psychic: Are you here to make trouble? Because I don't want trouble from anyone --

Dusty: Well, you shouldn't have to ask. You're a psychic. You should just know.

Psychic: I seem to have made you angry. I'm sorry. It was never my intention to upset you.

Dusty: Why are you stalking me?

Meg: You know, you may frustrate me and you may confuse me, but I'm not afraid of you, Paul.

Paul: Okay, then you don't need a bodyguard.

Meg: I have a bodyguard to keep you away from me. Because every time you're around, my body tenses up. And I can't take the stress of going through another fight.

Paul: And the only way we can keep from fighting is --

Meg: Is if you stay away from me.

Paul: Okay --

Meg: I'm sorry.

Paul: You know, what I don't understand is why Derek -- why is he the guard dog?

Meg: Paul --

Paul: The man worked for my father, Meg.

Meg: Yeah, and he was also decent enough to tell me what you were planning to do to Dusty.

Paul: Was it Dusty's idea to hire him?

Meg: Okay, you know what. This is exactly what I'm talking about --

Paul: No, hold on a second --

Meg: I really don't want to do this with you!

Paul: Meg, please, just wait one second. All I wanted to say is that if it was Dusty's idea, I think it's a great idea.

Meg: Really?

Paul: Yeah, sure. I mean, if it makes you feel safe and okay, then I'm all for it.

Meg: Well, that's a big change.

Paul: Yeah. Are you impressed?

Meg: Well, curious is more like it. What's going on?

Paul: Well, I have perspective. I just had a session with Dr. Michaels.

Meg: Oh, you're going to therapy?

Paul: Yes, I am. And I'm thinking I might actually go more than once this time. Dr. Michaels seems to like me. That might be because I'm paying her, but --

Meg: Probably.

Paul: Yeah. Well, either way, talking to her seems to be helping. I feel like a different person already.

Psychic: I'm not stalking you. I work here.

Dusty: I don't think so.

Psychic: It's true. I was hired by Lisa Grimaldi. You can ask her yourself.

Dusty: Hired to do what?

Psychic: Entertain the guests. It's Halloween. People get a kick out of flirting with the supernatural.

Dusty: So, is your act for sale?

Psychic: I don't have a problem making money from what I do. But that doesn't mean it's an act.

Dusty: I got you.

Psychic: What I'm able to see is nothing I ever asked for. It just came to me. And if it allows me to help people, then I think it's my duty to share this gift with others.

Dusty: Share or sell? How much do I owe you so far?

Psychic: You are under no obligation to listen to me --

Dusty: I don't feel obligated. I feel bothered, that's all.

Psychic: I know how much you miss your wife and her little boy --

Dusty: Is this a joke to you?

Psychic: No --

Dusty: How much did he pay you?

Psychic: I don't know what you're talking about.

Dusty: Paul Ryan.

Psychic: I don't know any Paul Ryan.

Dusty: Oh, no? Warn him. I'm on to him. Let him know.

Meg: Paul, I really want to believe that therapy is helping you --

Paul: But you don't believe me. That's okay -- it's okay. It's all right. I understand. I've made a lot promises to you that I haven't kept. And I said I was going to change things, and then I don't change anything. But this time, I'm sticking with it. I'm not going to stop going to therapy.

Meg: Well, as long as you're doing it for yourself.

Paul: I'm doing it for you. I'm doing it for the baby. I'm doing for all of us.

Meg: Paul, you know --

Paul: I just want you to know that I'm completely committed to this. And maybe that's not the best word to use, but -- you're really beautiful. You and this baby, you're my family. You mean everything to me.

Dr. Schiller: Meg, hi. Sorry to keep you waiting.

Meg: No, no problem.

Dr. Schiller: We're all set up in here, whenever you're ready.

Meg: Okay.

Paul: Okay, it's just routine, right?

Meg: Yeah, a sonogram.

Paul: Well, could you do me a favor?

Meg: Yeah.

Paul: Could you call me when it's over? Let me know how it went?

Meg: Sure. I can do that.

Paul: Thanks.

Meg: Paul? Would you like to stay for the sonogram?

Paul: You have no idea how much I want to stay.

Alison: And then, this one guy, the leader -- he took out his cell phone and he ordered me to strip. And he started recording --

Emily: Oh, my God -- Alison, please tell me they didnít. I mean, they didn't --

Alison: No. They didn't touch me. They just wanted to humiliate me. And mission accomplished.

Emily: Baby, why didn't you call me?

Alison: I couldnít. They had my cell phone. And then they just left me in the middle of Old Town in my underwear.

Emily: My God, those bastards! Tell me they were arrested.

Alison: No.

Emily: You didn't go to the police?

Alison: Casey found me first and we went back to his place and he gave me clothes. And then we went back to the dorm.

Emily: Why did you do that?

Alison: Casey wanted to find them.

Emily: Did he?

Alison: Yeah, he got into a huge fight. And he messed up this one guy's face pretty bad.

Emily: Ali, what were you doing with these guys in the first place?

Alison: I -- Luke Snyder is running for student government president. Casey is his campaign manager. And I was just helping them out.

Emily: Helping -- helping them how?

Alison: I was supposed to make friends with the opposition in order to get a preview of their strategy.

Emily: You were spying on them?

Alison: They found me out. Believe me, I'm sorry that I got into this whole election mess and I'm sure Casey is too.

Emily: Casey? Why? Well, what's going on with him?

Alison: Security had to come and break up the fight. Casey got arrested again.

Emily: Oh my God. Wait a minute, Casey -- Casey was arrested but the guys who attacked you weren't?

Alison: They wore masks the whole time so I couldn't make a positive id. So, Margo said there isn't anything she could do so she sent them home.

Emily: She what? That's un -- that's unbelievable. She runs the whole damn police department and she says there's nothing that she can do?

Alison: Emily --

Emily: No. No, no, no -- there's only one reason why she won't help you, and it's because you're my sister.

Alison: That's not true, Emily.

Emily: The hell it isnít.

Alison: Okay, Emily, please come back -- Emily!

Kevin: I didn't have anything to do with what happened to her.

Luke: You can keep saying that. You can say whatever you want, but I know you. And I know when you're lying.

Kevin: You want to make this personal?

Luke: You made it personal when you trashed me in that video.

Kevin: I said I'd take it down, didn't I?

Luke: Only to score points with Alison.

Kevin: You think -- you think I thought that was funny?

Luke: For all I know, you thought it was true.

Kevin: Don't be an idiot.

Luke: What? You sure you don't want to be the big, tough guy compared to me?

Kevin: Are you for real?

Luke: Once a bully always a bully.

Kevin: Well, maybe. At least I didn't pimp my friend out to get information. You did.

Margo: I am doing everything I can to get you out of this. Would you please just let me do my job? Please.

Casey: Fine. Yes. I'll be a model prisoner.

Margo: Fabulous. Take him.

Cop: Come on, Casey.

Margo: So, Mark, how's it going?

Mark: Done. Here you go.

Margo: Great. Great, great. So, you want to tell me what happened last night?

Mark: Oh, it's all there in my statement.

Margo: I know, but see the way it works here, is I compare it to your statement to see if there's anything you left out.

Mark: I didnít.

Margo: Okay. So, Casey just showed up at your doorstep and attacked you?

Mark: Pretty much. Yeah, just kind of went off.

Margo: Really? Casey said that it was provoked.

Mark: Well, he's lying.

Margo: He said that you and your friends tricked Alison into leaving Yoís and then got her into your dorm room, forced her to undress and then you taped it all on your cell phone.

Mark: Well, I don't know who did that to her. I don't know why they think it was me, but it wasnít.

Emily: I really don't care what Lieutenant Hughes is doing --

Margo: Get her out of here!

Mark: Hughes? Your Casey's mom?

Margo: Yes.

Emily: I am talking to you.

Margo: Remove her!

Emily: You touch me, I will sue. How could you do this to Alison? You want to hate me, you go right ahead. But don't you dare take this out on my sister!

Dr. Schiller: In a moment, we'll hear a heartbeat. Excellent. Look. The baby is at least 70 grams or more.

Paul: Is that good?

Meg: That's very good.

Dr. Schiller: Yeah. You know, Meg, considering that this has been a difficult pregnancy for you, everything looks to be pretty good. So, you keep up the good work.

Meg: I intend to.

Dr. Schiller: All right. Do you want a photo?

Meg: Yeah, could we have two?

Dr. Schiller: Sure, I'll make sure that they're at the front desk. Meanwhile, I'll leave the three of you alone for a moment.

Paul: It's amazing.

Meg: You know, I am really glad you stayed.

Paul: Yeah, me, too. It's our baby, huh?

Meg: Yeah, I know.

Paul: I should go. Um, listen, you know, after you get all your stuff together, may I walk you out?

Meg: I'd like that.

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

Paul: I'm not coming after you -- I don't even know what you're talking about?

Dusty: That psychic at the Lakeview. Tell me you don't know her.

Paul: I don't know her.

Dusty: How did she know about Jennifer and Johnny?

Paul: I don't know how she knew about Jennifer and Johnny.

Dusty: Why'd she say Jennifer might still be alive?

Paul: Dusty, I don't know. I don't know why anybody would say anything like that to you. It's got nothing to do with me.

Dusty: You're lying.

Paul: Look, if some psychic approached you -- I'm sorry, but I didn't do that. I called a truce, remember? I meant that.

Dusty: You did it. I'm going to find out why.

Margo: What the hell do you think you're doing?

Emily: What am I doing? I am standing up for my sister. You obviously don't care what happens to her.

Margo: It's my job to care, Emily.

Emily: Really? Is that why you told her there was nothing you could do for her? She was attacked for God's sake!

Margo: She can't positively id any of her attackers.

Emily: They dragged her back to their room. They forced her to strip, Margo. She was humiliated. We both know what that's like.

Margo: But she was not raped.

Emily: Well, that doesn't make what happened to her any less vile.

Margo: I totally agree with you.

Emily: Really? Then how the hell can you just ignore this?

Margo: I can't possibly ignore it. My son has been dragged right into the middle of it.

Emily: Casey? You think -- you think Alison dragged Casey into this? That's not the story I heard. But you know what -- you can read all about that story in the paper tomorrow.

Margo: Oh great. How can you possibly think that that is going to help here? My hands are tied.

Emily: You're just going to let these boys get away with this?

Margo: She can't positively id any of them.

Emily: Oh, right. So why bother? You know what? If this was anybody else, you'd be all over it. But no, no, it's a Stewart woman, so who cares.

Margo: Your sister saved my life. I would do anything I could to make sure that she gets the justice she deserves.

Emily: Really? But not at Casey's expense. No Casey comes first.

Margo: Oh for God's sake -- whatever. Emily, do you know anything about last night that I don't know? No, I don't think so. And unless Alison comes in here with anything, you are once again simply wasting my time.

Emily: Fine -- have it your way.

Luke: Look, Kevin, wait up.

Kevin: I have nothing to say to you.

Luke: Okay, well, then just listen. There have been mistakes on my side, too. Alison Stewart never should have been sent to spy on you. And I'm sorry. But I just want you to know that it wasn't my idea.

Kevin: Just like that video wasn't mine. And I was nowhere near what happened to Alison last night.

Luke: This is crazy. This is a student government election. We don't need to be doing this to each other.

Kevin: I've been saying that all along. Right when I shook your hand and I said, "May the best man win," I meant that. I just wanted a clean fight.

Luke: Well, I wanted that, too. Is there anything we can do to get it?

Kevin: Well, yeah, there is.

Luke: What is it?

Kevin: Drop out of the race.

Luke: Are you serious?

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

Margo: Alison. Well, what a surprise.

Alison: Hi. Look, Emily called me -- I don't know what she told you --

Margo: You know what? You know what? She's just concerned for you, okay? I have something you need to see. Campus security found this on the quad and they found your phone youíre wrapped up inside clothes. They checked it for prints.

Alison: And?

Margo: I'm sorry, nothing. Is there any chance that I could talk to you alone?

Emily: No, no, no, no. You are not kicking me out. Anything you want to say, you can say in front of me.

Alison: Emily, please. You want me to stand up for myself? I can do it. Then let me handle this.

Emily: Okay. All right, I'm sorry. Just call me, okay? As soon as you hear anything.

Alison: I will. I'm sorry about that.

Margo: I'm so used to it. Mark Vero is here.

Alison: He is?

Margo: Yeah, he's inside proof-reading his statement against Casey.

Alison: I am so sorry, Margo. I never meant for any of this to happen. I got myself into trouble and Casey -- he just came to my rescue.

Margo: I know. My question for you now is -- how far are you willing to go to help him out?

Paul: All right, look, I am not responsible for every bad thing that happens to you, Dusty. All right, and you accusing me isn't going to change anything.

Dusty: I'm not accusing you -- I'm telling you. I know you did it. This is your routine, remember? You sent that psychic to Jennifer. Drove her crazy.

Paul: Oh, okay.

Dusty: Stick with what works, right?

Paul: People call me paranoid --

Dusty: You set me up. Admit it.

Paul: That's enough. Get out of my face.

Meg: Hey, hey, hey, Paul! Stop! What is going on here?

Paul: Nothing.

Dusty: He's lying to you, Meg.

Paul: No, I'm not. Please, don't you say that to her.

Dusty: He's hired a woman to pose as a psychic. To start talking to me about my wife.

Meg: Jennifer?

Paul: No, it's not true. He's trying to turn you against me.

Meg: Okay, you know what? Stop it. I thought you said you were changing.

Paul: Well, I'm trying.

Meg: Okay, then, tell me the truth. Do you know this woman that Dusty's talking about?

Paul: Yes, I do. Meg: You said you weren't going to obsess about Dusty anymore. You told me that you let it go.

Meg: I have.

Dusty: You told me you had nothing to do with this psychic.

Paul: I don't have anything to do with her. I only know her because she approached me, too.

Meg: She did?

Paul: Yeah, at the Lakeview. She talked to me. Same way she talked to Dusty.

Dusty: How convenient.

Meg: Well, how did she know about Jennifer? And Johnny? Did you say something to her?

Paul: No. I would never abuse my sister's memory like that.

Dusty: Well, what did she say to you?

Paul: I'm not going to tell you.

Dusty: Why not?

Paul: Because it's personal.

Dusty: See this spin?

Paul: I'm not spinning anything. It's private. And I'm really sorry that this woman upset you. But this is not my fault, Dusty.

Dusty: What did she say to you?

Paul: What do you care? It's not like you believe anything she has to say anyway. You think she's some kind of a joke.

Meg: You don't?

Paul: Me? No. I have visions. I have premonitions. Who the hell am I to say what's true or not true.

Dusty: He's crazy.

Meg: Okay, Dusty, that's enough.

Dusty: You really think Lisa hired this woman to entertain guests? No, Paul planted her there.

Meg: Did you ask Lisa about her?

Dusty: No.

Meg: Well, maybe you should. And until then, you should keep your accusations to yourself.

Dusty: When I find out the truth, you'll be the first to know.

Luke: Do you really expect me to just drop out?

Kevin: I'm just being realistic.

Luke: You know what I think? I think that you're terrified that you might actually lose to me.

Kevin: Luke, you got into this for one reason. So the gay film festival would survive. There are other issues.

Luke: Like what? Keggers and toga parties?

Kevin: Have you reached out to any of the other groups, aside from gay-straight alliance? Tell me.

Luke: I'm not dropping out of this race, Kevin.

Kevin: You know what? Do what you have to do. But at least be man enough to admit what this is really about. You don't care about being president. You just want to say you beat me.

Mark: I've read my statement three times now.

Margo: So everything in there seems accurate?

Mark: Yes. So I can go now? Listen, I promise when this comes up in court, I'll show up. I want to make sure justice gets done.

Margo: Oh, I can't tell you what I think of your sense of civic duty.

Mark: Great. So, I can go?

Margo: Not quite yet. There's someone who wants to see you.

Mark: What is she doing here?

Margo: You got a problem with Alison?

Mark: I don't have anything to say to her.

Margo: I'm sorry, come again? You know, and he was so chatty earlier. See, here's the thing, Mark. Alison can't positively id any of the attackers. Because they were all wearing masks. Trick of treat. But they did talk to her, a lot. They ordered her around.

Mark: And what does that have to do with me?

Margo: She can still make a positive voice id.

Mark: A positive voice --

Margo: Yes, and that would back up Casey's statement that the attack was provoked.

Mark: I didn't do anything to her! I didn't even speak to her that night. She was all over three other guys, including your son. I don't know, talk to them!

Margo: What do you think, Alison? Does that sound familiar?

Alison: I don't know -- a little. Could you have him read something else?

Margo: Yeah, yeah. Actually, I can have him read something from Alison's statement here. Okay? Mark, can you just repeat the following for me? "We're not going to do anything. You're going to do it to us." No, you don't like that one? Okay, "We want you to do what you did in that movie. Only live and in person." Here, either one of those is fine.

Mark: I don't have to.

Margo: I'm sorry, come again?

Mark: I said, I don't have to. I'm not under arrest. You can't do anything to me.

Margo: No, but the judge can. And that is exactly what's going to happen if you continue to press charges against Casey for assault and battery.

Mark: You know what? Forget it. It's not worth it.

Margo: Well, I'd say that was worth it.

Alison: Just a little.

Dusty: I'm looking for Lisa Grimaldi. She around?

Emily: Just missed her. Left for the day.

Dusty: Damn it.

Emily: What's wrong with you?

Dusty: Nothing.

Emily: Nothing? You know what? You're worse than my sister. Sit down. I'm buying you a drink. Scotch, neat, please. So, what's got you in such a mood?

Dusty: Paul Ryan.

Emily: What a surprise. What did he do now?

Dusty: Hired some woman to pose as a psychic. She starts talking to me about Jennifer and Johnny --

Emily: Well, you don't mean the psychic here? Madame Penelope? Isn't that it?

Dusty: How do you know her?

Bartender: Thank you.

Emily: Thanks. Drink. I overheard Lisa mention her name.

Dusty: What did Lisa say about her?

Emily: Nothing, just that she hired a psychic. She thought it'd be a hoot to have a real, live psychic here at the hotel.

Dusty: So, this was Lisaís idea? Paul had nothing to do with it?

Emily: You thought he did?

Dusty: Yeah. Can you blame me?

Emily: No, I guess not.

Dusty: I mean, when she started talking to me about Jennifer and Johnny -- I thought for sure Paul was trying to mess with my head.

Emily: Looks like he succeeded.

Dusty: I don't like the idea of some stranger talking about my wife.

Emily: You don't like anyone talking about Jennifer. It shouldn't still be this painful, Dusty.

Dusty: You think this woman's insights are legit?

Emily: I don't know. I mean, you just told me you're still not over Jennifer.

Dusty: I know what I said.

Emily: Well, maybe she picked up on that.

Dusty: Please.

Emily: You know what? You radiate this pain sometimes. I know you try to hide it, but sometimes you just can't, Dusty.

Dusty: My wife died too soon.

Emily: It's unfair, I know.

Dusty: And then I lost Johnny boy --

Emily: And you haven't felt complete since and maybe that's because you haven't really let anyone in your life since.

Dusty: I guess I'll move on when I'm ready.

Emily: So when's that going to be?

Dusty: Who knows?

Emily: You gotta find some way to put this behind you.

Dusty: Do me a favor, all right? Don't play life coach with me. I don't need it.

Emily: I think you're wrong.

Meg: Thank you for seeing me home.

Paul: Oh please, thank you. It gives me a chance to say thank you.

Meg: Well, it is your baby too. You have every right to be at the sonograms.

Paul: Still. You didn't have to ask me to stay.

Meg: It wouldn't have felt right without you there.

Paul: There's something else I want to thank you for. You sticking up for me with Dusty? I didn't expect that.

Meg: Yeah, well, to be honest -- I was surprised about that too.

Paul: You just get kinda got caught up in the moment?

Meg: I hope not. Were Dusty's accusations unfounded?

Paul: Completely.

Meg: So -- why didn't you tell him what the psychic told you?

Paul: Because I knew he would never get it. I'd be more than happy to tell you, if you want to hear it.

Meg: You're not afraid that I won't get it?

Paul: No, um, the ends don't justify the means and I'll never get what it is that I want if I keep going the way I'm going.

Meg: That's it?

Paul: Yeah, I know, I know, it sounds like a bumper sticker, but it made a lot of sense to me --

Meg: How?

Paul: How? I want to be your husband. I want to be the father to our baby. I won't get either of those things if I keep doing what I'm doing. The more I go after Dusty, the more it pushes you away.

Meg: So, all you needed was a psychic to tell you this?

Paul: Apparently. Yes, but I finally get it. I do. I see how much my obsessions have come between us. And I know how much I have to lose. I'm not going to let that happen.

Margo: You kept my son from going back to prison, so I owe you. I just wish there was some way that I could repay you.

Alison: What do you mean?

Margo: Well, it is so obvious that that kid attacked you and I'd like to see him get what he deserves, but I just simply don't have any evidence.

Alison: I understand.

Casey: Hey, Mom?

Margo: Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.

Casey: What's up? Cheer up, I've got some good news for you. Your friend Mark? He's not pressing charges.

Casey: I'm free to go?

Margo: You're free as a bird. I talked to your father, who has already talked to your parole officer and he's willing to look the other way -- you are so lucky.

Casey: Why is Mark dropping the charges?

Margo: You're gonna have to ask your friend Alison, here. I couldn't have done it without her.

Casey: You did this?

Margo: She'll explain it all to you on your way out. Okay?

Casey: I am more than happy with that.

Margo: Wait a minute, can you just give me a second?

Casey: What?

Margo: Um, you do me a favor, never show up here again.

Casey: What if -- what if I need money for pizza or something?

Margo: Get out of here.

Casey: Thanks, Mom.

Margo: Get out, go, go, go!

[Casey yells]

[Dusty remembering]

Dusty: Wear this ring, forever.

Jennifer: Wear this ring, forever.

Casey: I cannot believe you convinced Mark to drop the charges.

Alison: It was your mom's idea.

Casey: Yeah, but if you hadn't, you know -- you really put yourself out there for me and I appreciate it.

Alison: Well, it was my fault you were in jail in the first place.

Casey: That's funny, I don't remember you throwing any punches.

Alison: You know what I mean.

Casey: Either way, yeah, you came through for me, and I'll never forget it.

Alison: Well, I just wish I could forget the whole thing.

Casey: Yeah, I know I said this before -- but I'm sorry. I started this by asking you to spy on Kevin. If he had -- if he had hurt you, I would never have forgiven myself.

Alison: Well -- they didnít. And I don't blame you, case. Really, I donít.

Casey: How could you not?

Alison: I'm a big girl, I could've said no. I knew what I was doing. And, it's not all your fault. Okay?

Casey: Okay, thanks.

Luke: Alison -- I heard what happened. I am so sorry. Is there anything I can do?

Alison: I'm fine. Really.

Casey: Um, hi. I spent the night in jail, but yes, I'm fine. Don't worry.

Luke: Oh come on, Casey, I care about you too. I was all set to smuggle you in some hair gel.

Casey: You really think he's funny?

Luke: Look guys, I'm gonna prove it to both of you that these guys are not going to get away with what they've did.

Casey: Damn right you are. We're going to kick their butts in this election.

Luke: Ah, Casey, have you gotten a chance to talk to Mr. Lewis?

Casey: Our faculty advisor? No. Why?

Luke: Well I -- I just came from talking to him and he says I need to find another campaign manager.

Casey: What? Why?

Luke: Because of your fight with Mark, and your previous record -- Casey, I hate to say this to you, but you've been suspended from school.

Mark: I can't believe the little porn queen put herself on the line for Hughes.

Kevin: Good, I'm glad she did.

Mark: What do you mean, good?

Kevin: You want to go to court over this? Dude, what you did grabbing Alison like that? You're lucky you're not the one in jail right now.

Mark: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I did this for you, man. You remember how mad you were when you found out she was spying? You wanted her out of there.

Kevin: I didn't tell you to drag her back to your dorm room and force her to strip.

Mark: Some people need to be taught a lesson.

Kevin: Mark, you did a really stupid thing.

Mark: Hey, you're the one that's going to look stupid if you let that little homo beat you.

Kevin: Would you stop calling him that? You think I care whether Luke Snyderís gay or not? What is wrong with you?

Mark: What's wrong with you, Kev? I thought you wanted to win this thing.

Kevin: I do.

Mark: Well then you need to grow a pair. You're playing with the big boys now. This is politics. Things get ugly.

Casey: I've been suspended?

Luke: I'm sorry, Casey.

Casey: Oh, man. My parents are going to flip out.

Alison: No, they'll understand if you just --

Casey: No, they wonít. The last two words my parents want to hear is arrested and suspended.

Alison: I would think it would be drugs and porn.

Luke: I was going to say gay and paralyzed.

Casey: I need new friends.

Luke: Look, Casey, I know this doesn't help, but I tried to talk to Mr. Lewis, make him see the situation, but he said there's nothing he could do.

Casey: Damn it.

Luke: You know what? Maybe Noah and Kevin are right. Maybe I should just drop out.

Alison: What? No. Luke, you can't do that.

Luke: Why? Look how badly everything's gone. This wasn't what I was planning for. It's just not worth it.

Casey: Then make it worth it. Win this thing. Show them you're not going to sink to their level.

Alison: Casey is right. If you give up now, you will show them that intimidation works.

Luke: You really think I can win?

Alison: You'd better. We didn't go through all this for nothing.

Luke: Great. No pressure.

Casey: Don't quit, okay? We all still believe in you.

Luke: You do?

Casey: Hell yeah.

Alison: One hundred percent. And I'm not even qualified to vote.

Casey: So are you in this or not, huh?

Luke: Yes.

Casey: I'm sorry, what'd you say? I can't hear you. Are you in this?

Luke: Yes! I'm in this. I'm in it to win it. No matter what it takes.

Paul: I'm going to put it on the mantelpiece at Fairwinds. Maybe it'll make that big house seem more like a home.

Meg: Paul --

Paul: Yeah I know. It is something worth fighting for though, don't you think? I know you've had your doubts about me. I know you still do.

Meg: Yeah, it's just because we've been here so many times, Paul, and we made so many promises to each other.

Paul: Well, I'm the one who broke those promises every time.

Meg: I'm not keeping score.

Paul: I am. But it won't be like that forever. I'm going to keep working. I'm going to keep going to therapy. I'm going to stay until it sticks this time. I have the best reward in the world waiting for me at the end of the road.

Meg: Paul --

Paul: You're worth fighting for. You and our baby -- that's all that matters.

Meg: If it helps -- we do want you back, we miss you.

Paul: Well, I miss you too. Unless I get better, I'll never get you back. See ya later.

Meg: Bye --

[Dusty remembering]

Jennifer: If you weren't here, I wouldn't feel this.

Dusty: Feel what?

Jennifer: Whole. Not be in love.

Dusty: Jennifer.

Jennifer: Yeah?

Dusty: Will you marry me?

Jennifer: Yeah.

Dusty: Don't make me ask again.

Jennifer: No, that's my final answer. But I need you to let go and help me die.

Dusty: Why Red -- why can't I let you go?

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Dusty: A redhead in a hospital in Sandusky, Ohio has got the same initials as my wife.

Jack: One thing I know about Janet, she has a way of making people like her.

Janet: Looks like I have time for that drink after all.

Carly: Where's Janet?

Sage: In the bar drinking with some man.
