Katie: Listen, I know it's awkward, but you have got to call Kim right away and tell her what Spencer did.

Brad: Even if nothing happened?

Katie: Something did happen. The woman came onto you in a hotel room paid for by WOAK. You two were supposed to be there on assignment, and she turned it into something else. It's called sexual harassment in the workplace, Brad.

Brad: I know, I know, but I don't know. I just don't want to come off -- I don't want to sound like a tattletale. I don't want to --

Katie: Oh, okay, let's just put me in this situation, then. I show up at work, and some guy leers at me and makes suggestive comments. But no, I'm just supposed to forget about it because I don't want to sound like a tattletale.

Brad: I'd kill him, okay? No, of course not. But it's different for a guy.

Katie: No, it's not, that's what I'm saying. Inappropriate behavior goes both ways. And to buy trashy lingerie to seduce a guy you work with -- unless you enjoyed that part?

Brad: No, I didn’t. I don't want Spencer. I'm a married man. I only want you.

Katie: Good. Then you need to nip this in the bud now. Seriously, how are you ever going to work with Spencer again, when you're always worried she's going rip her clothes off and throw herself at you?

Brad: Okay, okay, okay. Well, I have to talk to Kim, and explain to her why we're not in Chicago like we're supposed to be. So I'll just tell her that I can't work with Spencer anymore.

Katie: Good. Want me to come with you? Back up your story?

Brad: No, no. I'm the one that got played, and it's my mess. I gotta fix it.

Katie: It's not your fault, it's hers.

Brad: Yeah, well, she's not gonna get away with it.

Spencer: I'm so sorry, Kim. I just couldn't stay in Chicago, not after what Brad tried to do to me.

Kim: Do you think there was maybe some kind of a misunderstanding? I just cannot imagine that Brad would betray Katie that way.

Spencer: I know, Kim, but he did. He threw himself at me. I was so shocked, I didn't even know how to respond. But I knew I had to get out of there. I don't even know how I'm going to go on camera with Brad anymore? I can't trust him.

Kim: Okay, you know, I really need to understand the circumstances a little better. Neither one of you were drinking, right?

Spencer: I told you, Brad brought champagne. He opened it, but we didn't have any. And then, the next thing I knew, he was just all over me. And that's not even the worst part.

Kim: Oh, Lord. There's more?

Spencer: I'm just -- I'm just really sad. When I started working here, he was so nice to me. I thought it was because he wanted me to succeed, not because he wanted to use me --

Kim: Okay, all right, all right. Wait minute now. Just a minute. Just take it easy. I think the best thing for you to do for your own sake is to go home, calm down, try to collect yourself and let me take care of Brad, okay?

Spencer: What are you going to do?

Kim: I'm going to ask him what happened in Chicago. If what you said is true, there are going to be serious consequences.

Spencer: I never wanted this to happen. Do you believe me?

Kim: Right, right. Now you just go on home, okay? Promise me you'll take care of yourself. Okay, good girl. Good girl.

[Cell phone ringing]

Brad: Hello?

Kim: Brad, its Kim. We need to talk about what happened between you and Spencer in Chicago.

Brad: You read my mind. I'll be right there.

Katie: Good luck.

Brad: Oh, don't worry, I'm not the one in trouble.

Casey: Hey, Mom. I just went down and voted. First time. It felt pretty good.

Margo: Wow, congratulations.

Casey: Pretty messed up I can't vote in the student election, but I get to have a say in who becomes the next president of the united states.

Margo: It's a wonderful thing to vote. You're very lucky, because if your parole had been revoked, you wouldn't be.

Casey: Yes, I know you're upset that I got suspended, but somebody had to stand up for Alison.

Margo: You know what? I really, really don't care about a bunch of out-of-control frat boys. I mean, what they did to Alison was horrendous. But what you did was stupid. You could have ended up back in Statesville.

Casey: Those creeps kidnapped her. They got her to think they were going to rape her.

Margo: I don't care. I don't want to talk about this anymore. You're all right, you're fine, and that's what counts for me. And I've got to go off and vote because I've got to get to work. Oh, work -- now there's an idea. How about you go to work, get a job, because you're not going to hand around here now that you're not in school.

Casey: Wanna bet?

Luke: Hi, I'm Luke Snyder. I'm running for student government president.

Courtney: And we should vote for you, why?

Luke: Well, I will make sure that every student on this campus has the same rights and privileges as every other student.

Courtney: How are you going to do that?

Luke: Well, I'm going to get the student body to petition the university board of trustees to create a diversity statement. The anti-discrimination policy in hiring and admissions should be extended to team sports, clubs, and fraternities.

Courtney: Sounds cool.

Joe: You vote for Luke Snyder, and everyone a fair shot.

Jay: But if Kevin wins, we get free beer.

Luke: What do you mean?

Jay: They're having a victory party at Yo’s. A vote for Kevin gets you a mini-keg.

Alex: Hey, guys, check it out -- vote right, party all night!

Luke: That is so sick. He can't get away with this!

Noah: I think he just did.

Alison: Hey, Casey, are you deaf yet?

Casey: I'm busy! Yes!

Alison: Well, glad you're making good use of your free time.

Casey: Alison, I'm sorry. I thought you were my mom.

Alison: Thanks a lot.

Casey: You sounded just like her. "Casey, are you deaf yet?" It was kind of creepy.

Alison: Please, I am not here to give you a hard time. I already feel bad enough for getting you kicked out of school.

Casey: I wasn't going to let them get away with what they did.

Alison: Well, at least you didn't end up back in jail. I really owe you, Casey.

Casey: Mark Vero is disgusting. I wish we could make him pay.

Alison: Me, too. But there's another way. We can make sure his candidate gets beat in the election.

Casey: I'm officially off the campaign.

Alison: I'm not a student at O.U., either. We can still go and help Luke win the election.

Casey: I know. Can't we just make Kevin disappear and no one ever find him?

Alison: No, this time we go by the book. No lying. Nothing dirty.

Casey: Why not? Kevin's asking for it.

Alison: Luke can't stoop to that level. If he wins, it's because he's a really good guy. And you've already gotten into enough trouble. So, let's not tempt fate. Okay?

Casey: Okay. Aye-aye, mom.

Kim: No, we had to cancel the remote in Chicago. Well, we're just going to handle the election returns on the local news. Right. Okay, bye.

Brad: Kim, I'm sorry that I bailed in Chicago, but after what happened, I cannot work with Spencer anymore.

Kim: Well, I completely agree with you on that. She told me all about it.

Brad: She did?

Kim: Yes. You have to understand this is completely unacceptable. You have single-handedly created a huge problem for the station.

Brad: Wait. What did I do?

Kim: Well, Spencer said that you came onto her and tried to seduce her.

Brad: What? No, no, no! She came onto me. I had to fend her off.

Kim: Well, that's not Spencer's version. According to her, you practically forced yourself on her.

Brad: Are you kidding me? No, Kim, it was the other way around! You know, she got half-naked and totally threw herself at me! Come on, come on. You can't take her word over mine.

Alison: Hey, guys, how's it going?

Noah: Well, this might come as a shock, but it seems most students at O.U. care more about getting free beer than Luke's platform of fairness and diversity.

Casey: Free beer, huh? We should have thought of that.

Alison: Would you be serious?

Luke: This is so not right. Where's Kevin?

Casey: He's in Java.

Noah: Hey, Luke, don't go in there. Don't look for him. If he wants to buy people's votes with beer, that's his problem.

Luke: Half the kids people he's buying for are underage, Noah. That proves that he's not fit for office. And I'm going there and make sure he gets the message.

Noah: You'll just going to make it worse.

Luke: It can't get worse than this.

Kevin: Party tonight, right?

Luke: Is this really how you want to win, Kevin? Bribing people with drinks?

Kevin: Face it, Luke. I won this election a long time ago -- as soon as you started running against me.

Luke: Oh, yeah? I wonder what put you over the top. Maybe it was that stupid homophobic video that your so-called campaign manager put up on the internet? I've got news for you -- people don't buy that crap anymore.

Kevin: You know what they don't buy is your holier-than-thou attitude. You think you're better than everybody else. But you know what? No one wants to listen to any of your lectures. School is tough enough. You know, at the end of the day, they just want to kick back and party. That's what we're doing here.

Luke: No, what you're doing is irresponsible and illegal.

Mark: What are you going to do, call the cops?

Luke: Yeah, somebody should, maybe.

Kevin: We're just having a victory party, all right? My supporters have the right to celebrate. Look, all I'm saying is that college is supposed be fun, and they shouldn't feel guilty about it.

Luke: No, you're the one that should feel guilty.

Kevin: Look, you gave it your best shot, and you lost. Now it's just time to make a graceful concession and call it quits.

Luke: Yeah, we'll see who makes the concession speech --

Noah: Come on, let's go.

Alison: We have got to get Luke's voters to the polls.

Joe: How about one last big rally?

Luke: Well, according to Kevin, it won't make a difference.

Noah: Luke, don't let him get to you. You ran a really great campaign on some important issues. Now it's just -- it's out of your hands.

Luke: So you agree with Kevin, there's nothing I can do.

Noah: I didn't say that. And you should be proud no matter what happens. I got to go drop off a paper for class, but I'll meet you at Al's later?

Luke: Sure.

Noah: Hey, you're still a winner to me.

Alison: So what exactly did Kevin say to you?

Luke: Well, they're planning their victory party. He thinks there's nothing we can do.

Casey: What does he know?

Luke: You know, we knew that this was going to be a really tough race. They had a really nasty campaign, and I tried to stay above it, but I'm thinking that maybe this is just how politics works. Like you can't win by playing fair.

Casey: We could always stuff the ballot boxes.

Alison: Great plan, Case.

Casey: What, the other side's not going to play fair, why should we?

Luke: Because two wrongs don't make a right.

Joe: No, but in the end, it might justify the means. I mean, it's your call. But if you change your mind, I do work-study in student affairs. I could access the ballot templates and print out some extras.

Luke: No, no.

Joe: Whatever. Kevin wins with free beer.

Luke: No, no. That is not going to happen.

Katie: What's wrong?

Margo: Oh, what isn't? Casey's suspended from school. You know, it's a long story, and I don't want to talk about it. You tell me something good.

Katie: Well, I don't know how good it is. I'm sorry about Casey. You sure you don't want to talk about it?

Margo: Yep. Pretty sure I don't want to talk about it. You talk to me.

Katie: Okay, well, as you know, I was telling anyone who'd listen that Spencer McKay is up to no good. And guess what?

Margo: What?

Katie: I was so right.

Margo: How so?

Katie: Well, I saw her buying some sexy lingerie. She took it with her to Chicago, and tried to use it to get Brad into bed!

Margo: Oldest trick in the book. So Brad didn't fall for it, huh?

Katie: No, not only that, he told her that he would never cheat on me. And now he's refusing to work with her. He's actually at the station right now talking to Kim about it.

Margo: Well lucky you, no wonder you're so happy.

Katie: The only thing that would make me happier is for you to arrest Spencer. I would love nothing more than the pleasure of seeing you put her in cuffs and read her rights.

Brad: I'm not perfect, Kim. I'm far from it, but this time, I am innocent. I'm in Chicago, in the hotel room and then the next thing I know, Spencer sashays out of the bathroom wearing practically nothing --

Kim: And what were you wearing at the time?

Brad: Exactly what I am wearing right now. You know, I handled it the right way. I was really nice about it, I pushed her away. I said we're not going to happen.

Kim: I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I have your version, I have Spencer's version of it, and they are two diametrically different stories.

Brad: Except mine happens to be true.

Kim: Which is exactly what Spencer said. Look, it certainly wouldn't be the first time that a man was tempted by an attractive woman. And frankly, you two do have a certain amount of chemistry on the air.

Brad: You're going to use that against me?

Kim: Well, I've seen you flirt with her. You like it when she flatters you. You have taken her side of arguments you're having with Katie.

Brad: Okay, okay, yeah. Yeah, there was a time when I sided with Spencer. But that's because she was hurt that Katie was suspicious of her. You know, but I'm telling you, I did not encourage her in any way.

Kim: All right, maybe not, but you certainly didn't discourage her, either.

Brad: Yeah, okay, okay, in hindsight, I didn't send up any red flags. But Kim, I swear to you, I swear, I did not see this coming. I hate that I got played. She was pretending that Katie was her idol, and the whole time she was trying to break up our marriage!

Kim: You don't feel any sense of responsibility for this?

Brad: For what happened in Chicago? No way. That was 100% Spencer. I'm telling you, Kim, she's not a professional. You gotta let her go. Otherwise, we're going to have a real problem at the studio.

Kim: Actually, Brad, the way I see it, you're the one with the problem.

Casey: Are you going to eat that?

Luke: No, knock yourself out.

Alison: So are we still planning a big Luke Snyder rally?

Luke: Yeah, but I'm not sure it'll be enough to beat Kevin.

Casey: It will if you let Joe come up with extra ballots.

Alison: Stop. That is not happening, right?

Luke: Right. There has to be a way to win without cheating.

Joe: Well, if you change your mind, I printed out enough ballots to put you over the top. All we need to do is fill them out, and then someone needs to take them down to student affairs to be counted.

Casey: I'll do it. I'd do it. I don't even go to school anymore. I've nothing to lose.

Alison: Only your integrity. And yours, too. You can't do this, Luke. It's not you.

Casey: We are fighting fire with fire. Why sit back and let these jerks win?

Alison: Because it's wrong.

Casey: Okay, so they can be wrong and win, and we be right and lose? No, that's bull, actually.

Alison: You know, we need to talk, in private. Excuse me. Come on.

Noah: What's going on?

Joe: Well, Luke is trying to decide whether we should use the ballots I printed up.

Noah: You're kidding, right? How could you even go there?

Joe: Well, like I said, if you change your mind --

Noah: Are you really considering this?

Luke: I'm just so angry with watching Kevin cut every corner and still ending up on top. Look at what his buddies did to Alison. They should be in jail. Instead, Casey gets kicked out of school and almost sent back to Statesville. That's not fair, is it?

Noah: No, it's not. But Casey should've called the cops, not gone off on his own.

Luke: So, what? We just sit back and reward Kevin for playing dirty? Let him keep playing on people's prejudices? Let him put himself over the top by buying drinks for kids who aren't even old enough to drink? You know what, if Kevin loses this election, it will be a great thing for the school. Because if he gets any ounce of power, he's going to abuse it.

Noah: Can you tell me how stuffing ballot boxes isn't abusing power just as much? You can't sink to his level.

Luke: From day one, Kevin turned me into a joke. A dancing fairy in a tutu. They knew that I could beat them on the issues. So instead, they had to make fun of me. They had to get people to mock me and laugh at me because I was different. The bottom line, Noah, is that they don't deserve to win, and I do.

Noah: But you won't be winning, not if you cheat.

Luke: Well, what did Colonel Mayer used to say? Didn't your father say that winning was the most important thing, no matter the cost?

Noah: You know, you are the last person I ever expected to be quoting the colonel. He did a lot of bad things in his life. And he always had some self-righteous excuse. But you -- were better than that.

Kim: Brad, ever since you came to work here, you have been at the center of one crisis after another.

Brad: I know, I know. I have. I have really messed up, a lot, but this is not my fault.

Kim: Yeah, well, Spencer is prepared to go public with this if she has to. And so that means it doesn't matter what the truth is. It means that I could be underneath such an enormous lawsuit here at the studio. And I don't have the money for that. We cannot afford that in this economy.

Brad: So you're expecting me to take back what I said? She threatens you, and then I get punished based on lies?

Kim: I don't know what I'm going to do. But I'll tell you one thing. If you are going to stay on here, there are going to be some ground rules. I do not want you to have any interaction with Spencer outside of the studio. And when you're here in the studio, you make darn sure that you two are not alone. No personal contact. You have to be professional all the time. And I've got news for you. This better resolve itself cleanly and neatly, or you're going to be out of a job.

Margo: I am so sorry about the interruption. You know, so much crime, so little time.

Katie: I really do think you should open a case against Spencer.

Margo: Oh, Katie, just forget about her. Just concentrate on having your husband back. You know, he didn't fall for Spencer's tricks. You won. Go home. Do a little victory lap with your husband, huh?

Katie: I'd just feel better with her in lockup.

Margo: Oh, Katie.

Katie: Or just plain gone. That girl has been out to steal my life since day one. Thank God she overplayed her hand. But if she gets away with all of this without having to pay?

Margo: What, are you planning on getting some sort of revenge?

Katie: No. No. If you can't do anything, then I'll just leave it up to Brad. He and I will just have to settle for Kim firing her.

Margo: What if Kim refuses?

Katie: Then Brad will think of plan B. But he certainly is not going to let this slide.

[Knock at the door]

Brad: Spencer, I know you're in there.

Spencer: Brad, go away, I'm busy. I can't talk to you right now.

Brad: Why not? Are you afraid I'm going to throw myself at you again? Like you told Kim?

Spencer: I have nothing to say to you.

Brad: Fine. I'll talk, you listen. What the hell is going on with you? You try to get me fired because I won't have sex with you?

Spencer: All I did was tell Kim the truth.

Brad: Are you insane? Seriously, are you insane? The truth is, you came on to me, all right, not the other way around. I was there, remember? So what you're going to do is, you're going to go down to the studio, and you're going to tell Kim what really happened.

Spencer: I am not going anywhere with you. You manhandled me enough back in Chicago. I am not going to let you do it again!

Brad: Hey, easy. Look, I am not going to let you rewrite history.

Spencer: No, you have to get out of my room! Ow! What kind of animal are you? Get out of here! I'm calling the cops right now!

Brad: What kind of games you playing here? That was an accident. I didn't come here to hurt you.

Spencer: I want you to leave.

Brad: Believe me, I cannot wait to get very far away from you. I'm warning you, Spencer, you better make this right.

Spencer: Oh, don't worry, I will.

Katie: All right, I've got to get over to the station. I'm sure now that Brad's gotten Kim up to speed, the Spencer show has been canceled. This is my chance to get her to put "Oakdale Now" back on the air.

Margo: Okay, good luck with that.

Katie: Thank you.

Cop: Sorry to interrupt, Lieutenant. A call just came in you may want to handle. It's that TV talk show woman, Spencer McKay. Line three.

Margo: Thanks, Burns.

Katie: Put it on speaker.

Margo: Lieutenant Hughes, how can I help you?

Spencer: Brad Snyder was just here. He forced his way into my room, and he -- he attacked me.

Margo: That's a pretty serious accusation, Ms. McKay. Brad Snyder attacked you? How so?

Spencer: He shoved himself through the door, and he grabbed onto my shoulders, and he wouldn't let go. I had to fight him off.

Margo: I'll be right over to take your statement.

Katie: She's lying, Margo. Brad would not manhandle a woman like that.

Margo: Well, obviously, something happened. And what was he doing in her room in the first place?

Katie: I don't know.

Margo: He shouldn't have gone anywhere near her. Would you just keep an eye on him and keep him from doing anything else stupid? And I'll let you know what I know when I know it.

Noah: I don't know anybody with a better sense of right and wrong. How can you even consider this?

Luke: I tried taking the high road. Look where it got me. And Kevin gets to slander my name, and lie and cheat and buy votes, and he still comes out the winner.

Noah: This is getting way too personal. What is it about Kevin that pushes your buttons so much?

Luke: I just can't let him do this to me again.

Noah: Do what?

Luke: Make me feel like a nonperson.

Noah: Are you kidding me? You are 100 times a better person than he is. That's what knocked me out about you. How honest you are. How comfortable with yourself. I would not be who I am today if it wasn't for you, so don't let some hypocrite like Kevin change that about you.

Luke: I guess these old wounds go a lot deeper than I thought they did. I see Kevin doing what he's doing, and how it's so easy for him to just bash me, or bash anyone, for that matter, because he feels like he's entitled. And it just -- it brings up all these feeling of hurt and self-doubt that he made me feel in high school, and I don't want to feel that again, Noah. I don't want to feel that ever again. Nobody should.

Margo: Hi, I'm here to take your statement.

Spencer: Wait a minute. Aren't you Brad's sister-in-law? Maybe I should talk to someone else.

Margo: No, no, no, no, no. That won't be necessary. I'm not paid to take sides. I just want to know what happened.

Spencer: I told you. Brad Snyder attacked me.

Margo: Why would he do that?

Spencer: Because I wanted to tell our boss the truth, that when Brad and I went down to Chicago to cover the elections, he cornered me in my hotel room and tried to have sex with me.

Margo: And you realize that Brad has a completely different version of this story?

Spencer: Of course he does. If the truth came out, he would lose everything -- his wife, his career. Without Katie, he'd be nobody.

Margo: How'd you get your clothes torn?

Spencer: Brad was threatening me. He tried to push me through the door to make me go back to the studio to tell Kim that I made up my story, but I said no way. And when I did, he grabbed me and he ripped my clothes, Lieutenant. I thought he was going to hit me or worse. Brad Snyder belongs in jail. You have to arrest him.

Katie: What the hell were you thinking, Brad? Why would you go up to Spencer's hotel room?

Brad: How do you know about that?

Katie: Because I was with Margo when she called to report it. She said you attacked her. Is that true?

Brad: This is great. This is really great. First, Spencer lies to Kim, and now she lies to Margo?

Katie: She talked to Kim before you did?

Brad: Oh yeah. I told her all about how I tried to seduce her in Chicago.

Katie: She said you tried to seduce her?

Brad: Mm-hmm. And now it's her word against mine. How do I fight that?

Katie: Kim has to know she's lying.

Brad: I wish, but she's so caught up in trying to be fair. And I have no proof.

Katie: Well, I'm sure it didn't help your cause by going up to her hotel room! Why would she say you attacked her?

Brad: I don't -- I mean, okay, she was -- all right. I'm in there. She's trying to push me out the door. I guess, I think, you know, and somehow, her blouse got ripped, okay? It was an accident. It was an accident. I was trying to push her off of me.

Katie: Brad, how could you put yourself in that kind of situation when you already knew she was trying to make you look bad?

Brad: I had to do something about it, didn't I? I mean, after Kim got an earful from Spencer, I mean, she was, like, this close to firing me. So I went to Spencer, I said, "Look, I know what you're doing. I'm not going to let you get away with it." But I did not lay a finger on her.

Katie: Yes, you did. Her blouse got ripped.

Brad: That -- that was an accident. Stop making me sound like I'm some sort of sex maniac.

Katie: I'm sure that's what Spencer's telling Margo right now.

Brad: I cannot believe she went to Margo. I didn't do anything to the woman.

Katie: Yes, you did! You went up to her hotel room, you got into a fight with her, her clothes got torn. You could be in big trouble, Brad, and you know what? You're not going to have me or Jack to help you out of it this time.

Kim: Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse.

Katie: Yeah, I guess we were both wrong.

Kim: Just a minute!

Brad: Well, I got to explain to --

Kim: Not so fast. You do that on your own time. I warned you to stay away from Spencer, and what did you do? You went up to her room. You leave me no choice. You are fired.

Noah: I get that you still have issues with Kevin, all right. Coming out is -- it's not easy. We both know that. But you have got to deal with it. Don't let that change what I love about you.

Luke: Noah, maybe that's why I need to win this election -- for us. And every other kid that was picked on and made fun of. I'm serious. I got into this race because of you and me, because I want to stand up and be who I am! And maybe then, all of the nasty videos and talking behind our backs and laughing at us will finally just stop!

Noah: You can't stop people from being small-minded. All you can do is control yourself and do the right thing. I mean come on, we're supposed to be the good guys here.

Luke: Are we? Are we really? Or, are we just some big joke? I want to prove to people that I'm proud of who I am.

Noah: Well, I am proud of us. And you know what? I won't be if you cheat and neither will you.

Joe: Luke, you gotta come with me -- now! Come here! You've got to see this!

Alison: It's one thing to make a mistake by accident. But to deliberately do something that you know is wrong -- it's a trap. And you always feel bad afterwards. So bad, that you start to think it doesn't matter if you do something even worse next time.

Casey: Yeah, I know what you're saying, but I can't just sit back and let these jerks win. If I help Luke, he could do something really good.

Alison: But it's not worth it if you cheat. It's just going to come back to bite you.

[Casey laughs]

Casey: I thought we were hanging out. When did this turn into "Project: Save Casey"?

Alison: Stop. I like hanging out with you, and I don't want that to stop. But I just don't want to see you do something reckless that I know you're going to regret.

Casey: Why would I regret it if Luke gets the chance to do something terrific that we both know he could do? You know, he earned this. I don't know why this is so important to me, but it is. Maybe because, I wish I could be more like Luke, sometimes.

Alison: If you're saying you look up to him, then why not keep it that way? Don't make him do something that goes against everything he stands for. Okay, I have to go vote. I will see you at Al's, and by then, we should know for sure if good guys really can finish first.

Casey: Yeah.

Alison: Bye.

Mark: All right guys, free beer. Drink up.

All: Word.

Luke: What's up with that? Why are they celebrating? Is it over?

Joe: No, they're just seriously over-confident.

Mark: All right guys, let's face it. Victory is sweet, but it's not that hard when you're running against a wimp like Snyder. Am I right?

[All laugh]

Alex: Let's hear it for Kevin -- he's the man!

[All cheer]

Reg: I filled out the ballots. They're ready if you want to teach these losers a lesson.

Luke: Go ahead.

Casey: Hey -- where are you going so fast?

Joe: I got to cast my vote for Luke. Or should I say votes?

Casey: Luke okayed this?

Joe: Yeah, just now.

Casey: Let me do it.

Joe: Are you sure?

Casey: Yeah. What are they going to do, suspend me?

Alex: Almost time for the results to be posted. Got your acceptance speech ready, Kev?

Kevin: Yeah, why wait? All right, everybody, listen up! I wanted to thank everybody here who worked so hard on this party -- I mean -- not party -- uh, campaign. Look, I know you guys all came to celebrate a big win, so let's show this campus how --

Mark: Hey man, you're not going to believe this.

Alison: Hey, how's it going? Any news?

Luke: Not yet, but the results should be out soon.

Joe: Apparently, it's taking them longer to count than they thought. I'll keep checking.

Alison: Hey, Case. You okay?

Casey: I just ran into this guy on his way to post election results. Luke did it. He won! He won!

[All cheering]

Joe: It's official. Luke's the next president of the student government at Oakdale U!

Casey: Congratulations, man.

Alison: Oh, it's so awesome! And it was all, fair and square, right?

Joe: Yeah, of course, definitely.

Alison: Well, see? It pays to run a clean campaign.

Luke: Yeah, well, cleaner than the opposition, anyways.

Alison: Okay, come on, we have to celebrate. I bought some of these just in case.

Casey: Ooh! Let's give it up for Luke Snyder!

[All cheering]

Katie: Kim, I'm sorry to bother you, have you seen Brad?

Kim: Not since I fired him.

Katie: You fired him?

Kim: Yeah. I warned him never to be alone with Spencer. And what did he do? He went right up to her room, and got into some kind of a brawl with her. The man -- he's out of control.

Katie: I know, I know. I don't know why he gets himself into trouble. Why doesn't he think before he does these things? Margo, what are you doing here?

Margo: Hi. I'm looking for Brad. Do you know where he is?

Katie: No, Kim fired him, so he took off. I'm sure he was very upset.

Margo: Well, he's going to be even more upset when he finds out that Spencer is pressing charges. So, you know, why don't you come with me? We'll go find your husband. We'll keep him from making a bad situation worse, okay?

Brad: Is Henry here?

Bartender: No, not yet, but he should be coming back soon. Would you like a drink while you wait?

Brad: Yeah, I would. Could I get a beer? On second thought, I need a boilermaker.

[Cell phone ringing]

Bartender: One of those days, huh?

Brad: Yeah. Oh, yeah. And it keeps getting better. What do you want now, Spencer?

Spencer: Brad, I really need to talk to you.

Brad: I got nothing to say to you.

Spencer: I'm really, really sorry. I know I messed up. I should've never come onto you in Chicago.

Brad: So, suddenly you admit that's what happened?

Spencer: I don't know what got into me. When you turned me down, I lost it.

Brad: You think?

Spencer: Please, Brad, I want to be civilized about this. Can you meet me? I need to speak to you in person.

Brad: All right, but it's got to be in public. You know, witnesses.

Spencer: Fine. Why don't you come down to the Lakeview? I'll meet you in the lounge.

Brad: I'll be right there.

Spencer: I'll be waiting.

Katie: Brad? Brad, are you here?

Margo: Katie, his car wasn't outside.

Katie: I know. He hasn't been back here. Oh, he must be on such a short fuse right now. Where could he be?

Margo: Well, maybe he went to the farm to talk to Jack.

Katie: No, I called there already. No one's seen him. Oh, I have such a bad feeling about this.

Margo: Oh, Honey. Just relax, relax. Maybe he's had some time, he's been able to cool down a little bit.

Katie: No, no. That's the problem. Once Brad reaches his boiling point, it's not that easy for him to cool down. And that's when the real trouble starts.

Brad: Excuse me, I'm looking for Spencer McKay. Have you seen her?

Bartender: No, Sir, not today. Can I get you anything while you wait?

Brad: No, I'm good. I'm good, thanks.

[Elevator dings]

Brad: Spencer, you there?

On the next "As the World Turns."

Jack: Carly suggested that we put the wedding off for now. For the kids.

Brian: There's something wrong, and I want you to tell me what it is.

[Katie gasps]

Margo: Based on the evidence I've received, I have no choice but to arrest you for the murder of Spencer McKay.
