[Doorbell rings]

Carly: Parker, would you get that? Parker! Get the door! I have something on the stove in here. Don't strain yourself now.

Parker: Hey, Liberty.

Liberty: What took you so long?

Parker: I was helping my mom in the kitchen. So where's Van the man with his hot ride? Got to love a guy whose car is older than he is.

Liberty: I didn't come here with Van.

Parker: Sick of him already?

Liberty: I have to ask you a question.

Parker: Sounds serious.

Liberty: Yeah, it kind of is. Are you trying to mess with my mom's engagement to your dad?

Parker: What?

Liberty: Because if you are, I'll have you know that it's totally working.

Janet: Hey, Lois! Who sent the flowers?

Jack: I did.

Janet: Oh.

Jack: They're your favorites, right?

Janet: I suppose.

Jack: Had a hard time finding them. Do you know how rare lavender roses are? But is guess if I'm really sorry I should have gone the extra effort.

Janet: What can I get you?

Jack: I'm not here to eat.

Janet: Okay, well, I have other customers.

Jack: Janet, come on. Are you going to be mad at me all day?

Janet: Well, you were pretty mad last night.

Jack: I know, I know. And I'm sorry. I'm lavender roses sorry.

Janet: Does this mean you don't think I'm a slut or an evil stepmother-to-be?

Jack: Excuse me, excuse me. I never said that. I never thought that. Although that's exactly what Sage wanted me to think.

Janet: Sage?

Jack: Running into your ex wasn't the coincidence you thought it was.

Janet: She set me up?

Jack: She did.

Janet: How did she even know that George was my ex?

Jack: Still trying to figure that out. Bottom line is she wanted me to catch you with another guy.

Janet: Wow. I don't why I'm so surprised. She did lie about me leaving her alone in the lobby.

Jack: Yes, and I jumped to the worst possible conclusions. I hope you forgive me.

Janet: Oh, Honey. You had me at lavender roses. She really must have hated that Halloween costume I put together for her.

Jack: It wasn't the costume.

Janet: She really hates me.

Jack: She's just having a tough time getting used to her dad being with somebody else.

Janet: Well, I hope she gets used to it really quick because I really want her to be the flower girl in our wedding. She doesn't even want to be in the wedding?

Jack: Carly suggested that we put the wedding off for now -- for the kids. And I thought it might be a good idea.

Janet: Carly suggested, huh? Well, how sweet of her?

[Cell phone rings]

Lucinda: Yes, Brian.

Brian: So you haven't forgotten me. I was beginning to wonder after I didn't hear from you.

Lucinda: Well, I've been busy. As a matter of fact, I'm still busy.

Brian: Is everything all right?

Lucinda: Why shouldn't it be?

Brian: Well, when you canceled on me the other night you sounded a little abrupt.

Lucinda: Must've been all that skating nonsense. I've got to go now.

Nurse #1: Dr. Berg has something for you to read about breast cancer recurrence. It'll only take him a couple few minutes to print it out.

Lucinda: Oh, loveable Dr. Berg. Okay, I'll go and have a cup of ghastly hospital coffee.

Lily: Excuse me. You were just in that room with my mother. Why is she here?

Nurse #1: I'm sorry. You'll have to ask her that.

Katie: Well, that didn't help my headache.

Margo: Here, Honey, take these. So tell me what happened.

Katie: I was right. Brad did go to Metro looking for Henry. He knows if anyone can get through to me, Henry can.

Margo: Wow, I never pictured Henry as a marriage counselor, but I guess to each his own.

Katie: Unfortunately, Henry wasn't there. But the bartender did say that Brad got a phone call before he left.

Margo: Who called him?

Katie: He said he heard Brad say the name Spencer -- right before he left.

Margo: Oh, man --

Katie: It doesn't necessarily mean he went to see her.

Margo: Well, the woman filed assault charges against him. She got him booted out of a job. I mean, the last place he wants to show up when he's frothing at the mouth is around her.

Katie: I'll call him.

Margo: Let's pray that you can talk some sense into him, so his temper doesn't get the better of him.

[Cell phone ringing]

Katie: It's going straight to voice mail. Why couldn't he just leave her alone?

Margo: Well, maybe he did.

Katie: You think he's with her.

Margo: Yeah, I do.

Katie: Well, if he is, it's because Spencer figured out another way to get back at him for rejecting her.

Margo: If that is the real story.

Brad: Are you going for an academy award now? Come one, Spencer. You shouldn't be messing around with your scarf like that. That's dangerous, you know. Come on, Spencer. No, no, no. No, no. No, come on. No.

Margo: I'm sorry, Katie. But have you at least consider Spencer's version of the story -- it might be true.

Katie: No! No, Brad would never do that.

Margo: Well, you said yourself that things have been really tense between the two of you ever since Spencer came to work at WOAK.

Katie: Yeah -- no, no. I can't do that. I can't let myself go there. I just want Brad to get home before things get any worse.

[Cell phone rings]

Katie: It's Brad. Hi, before you say anything, please, tell me you're not with Spencer.

Brad: Actually, I am.

Katie: What?

Brad: Katie, just listen to me, okay?

Katie: What is it?

Brad: She's dead.

Katie: What did you just say?

Brad: Spencer --

Katie: How?

Brad: I don't know.

Margo: Is everything okay?

Brad: Is that Margo?

Katie: Yes.

Brad: Don't tell her anything. We need to figure out what to do first.

Katie: Everything's fine.

Brad: Please, just come to Spencer's room at the Lakeview. Now.

Katie: Okay.

Margo: What's wrong?

Katie: Brad's just really upset about our fight. He wants me to meet him --

Margo: Well, then why don't you let me give you a ride?

Katie: No! You've been babysitting me long enough. You go back to work. I'll call you.

Lily: Hello, Mother.

Parker: I cannot believe that you think that I tried to hurt your mom.

Liberty: I don't know. I didn't accuse you of anything.

Parker: Well, it sure sounds like it.

Liberty: I just think it's pretty weird that we ran into my mom's ex who said he was going to be at the Lakeview and then your sister started begging my mother to take her trick-or-treating there.

Parker: What's so weird about that?

Liberty: Dude, trick-or-treating at the Lakeview?

Parker: I've done it.

Liberty: Oh, okay.

Parker: I have. So that was just some weird crazy coincidence?

Parker: It's a small town, Liberty. People run into each other. It happens to us all the time.

Liberty: Yeah, I'm not so sure that that's really a coincidence either.

Parker: What?

Liberty: You know what? Never mind. Okay, thanks, bye.

Parker: Hold on. You're just going to leave?

Liberty: Yeah.

Parker: Where you going?

Liberty: Java, probably. I have a lot of homework to do.

Parker: You could do that here.

Liberty: Um, no thanks.

Parker: I promise it would just be studying.

Liberty: Parker, I'm really not in the mood to be hanging out right now. Sorry, I'll see you later then.

Parker: Right. Were you listening?

Carly: Not intentionally.

Parker: Can't anyone get any privacy around here?

Carly: Parker! You didn't answer her question -- did you try to interfere with your father's engagement. Did you?

Jack: It doesn't matter whose idea it was --

Janet: Not to you, maybe --

Jack: Listen, in light everything that's happened with Sage and Parker -- it kinda makes sense to wait -- at least until they've had time to adjust to the idea.

Janet: And how long do you and Carly see this adjustment period taking?

Jack: We didn't discuss that.

Janet: Really? Well, Carly didn't give you a ballpark? Like maybe a month? Six months? Never?

Jack: There was no timetable.

Janet: I don't know what the big a deal is. So Sage tried to make me look bad in front of you. That's okay. It's not like she's tried to do anything else. Has she?

Jack: Remember when you lost your engagement ring?

Janet: Yes. But Sage had nothing to do with that. I was washing the dishes in the sink and the ring slipped off my finger.

Jack: And who was helping you with the dishes? Sage, right?

Janet: Oh my God -- she took my ring?

Jack: She thought I'd be so mad at you for losing it that I'd call off the wedding.

Janet: Wow, that little one's a real family welcome wagon, isn't she?

Jack: Don't take it personally.

Janet: How could I not?

Jack: Listen, it's just that no matter how many times Carly and I tell her that we're not getting back together, she just -- she just won't accept it.

Janet: Sounds like she's not the only one.

Carly: You get back here. Liberty was right, wasn't she? You found out that Janet's ex was going to be in town and saw your chance to make trouble for the happy couple. And who better than Sage to help you? Since you know Sage doesn't want your father to marry Janet any more than you do.

Parker: What are you getting all fired up about? It's not like you want them to get married either.

 [Katie gasps]

Katie: How did this happen?

Brad: Sure as hell wasn't natural causes.

Katie: Brad, what did you do?

Brad: You don't think that -- are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? I came in here and I found her like this, Katie. She had a scarf wrapped around her neck. She was strangled. I didn't do it. Please tell me you believe me.

Margo: Nobody move!

Margo: Both of you just stand back over there where I can see you with your hands in front.

Katie: Margo, we're not criminals.

Margo: Then don't behave like one, Katie.

[Margo sighs]

Margo: So I'm guessing that she was already dead when Brad called you, and you just neglected to tell me that?

Brad: Katie had nothing to do with this.

Katie: Neither did you. Brad found Spencer like this when he got here. She had that scarf tied.

Margo: Just stop talking. Do you understand?

[Phone ringing]

Dani: Oakdale Pd.

Margo: This is Hughes. I need forensics at the Lakeview. We have an apparent homicide.

Brian: Hey. I didn't expect to see you. I trust you finished whatever had you so busy?

Lucinda: Yes, I did.

Brian: And just in time for a drink. I hope you'll join me.

Lucinda: No, no, no, no. I think we should keep our noses to the grindstone.

Brian: Okay, fine, fine. I can bring you up to date on all the projections for the foundation over a drink. Oh, hello. This, another surprise.

Lucinda: Hello, Darling. Are you following me?

Lily: As a matter of fact, I am.

Lucinda: We're busy.

Lily: Is that why you ran off without a word when I saw you at the hospital?

Brian: Perhaps I should leave you two alone.

Lucinda: No, no, no, no. It's not necessary at all. Lily has made it perfectly clear that she doesn't want to have anything to do with me. And Darling, I was just honoring your wishes.

Lily: Unbelievable. You alienated me, and somehow you've turned this around so that I'm the bad guy?

Lucinda: Think whatever you want.

Lily: I can't believe I was actually worried about you.

Lucinda: I can't, either, considering that I'm dead to you.

Lily: Why do I even bother?

Lucinda: Okay. Are you going to show me the projections or are you not going to show them to me?

Brian: So this business you had to take care of was at the hospital?

Lucinda: Yes, I'm on the board. I had a meeting.

Brian: You know, for a seasoned manipulator, you're a lousy liar.

Lucinda: I beg your pardon?

Brian: I mean, you could snowball your daughter all you want, but I'm not going to be that easy.

Lucinda: I have no idea what you're getting at.

Brian: Oh no? Your daughter finally gives you the opening you've been looking for ever since she cut you off, and you send her packing? There's something wrong, and I want you to tell me what it is. Now.

Janet: Carly tried to stop you from marrying Katie, too, didn't she?

Jack: That's not what she's doing.

Janet: Oh, really? That's not what she's doing? You sure about that? I'm sorry. I'm sorry. It's just that I've been neck-deep in bridal magazines since you asked me. I've been so excited and just -- never mind. It doesn't matter.

Jack: No, it does. It does matter. It matters to me. And if getting married right away means that much to you, then let's do it.

Janet: What about Sage?

Jack: Well, I'll find a way to get her to jump on board. At least long enough for her to be your flower girl.

Janet: You'd do that for me?

Jack: Of course I'd do that for you. I want you to be happy.

Janet: Yeah, but you won't be happy if your kids aren't 100% behind this. So, I'll wait.

Jack: Hey, are you sure?

Janet: No, I'm not sure. But I'm trying to be a good sport about this.

Jack: Come here. I love you.

Janet: I love you.

Jack: And I better get back to work before Margo starts wondering why she hired me back.

Janet: Oh. Thanks for the flowers.

Jack: Anything for you, sweetness. Bye.

Janet: Bye. All right. That's enough, Carly. You're going to suggest me right out of a husband if I let you. Hey, Lois? I'll be right back. I've got something to take care of.

Carly: I'm not going to lie to you.

Parker: That'll be a first.

Carly: Your father being engaged to Janet is very tough for me to swallow. But Parker, I've accepted that he's happy with somebody else.

Parker: Yeah, right.

Carly: This isn't even about me. The issue here is you. You don't want Jack to marry Janet, so you used your sister to try and stop it from happening.

Parker: It's not exactly like I had to twist her arm.

Carly: I don't care. You still encouraged her to lie. And what's worse, you did it for completely selfish reasons.

Parker: Okay, so now you're going to give a lecture --

Carly: Because if your father marries Janet, it limits your options with Liberty, doesn't it?

Parker: No, I am not talking about this with you.

Carly: Parker, I am not finished here.

Parker: Yeah, well, I am.

Carly: Teenagers.

Janet: You've definitely got your hands full. It's a good thing Jack and I are back on track. One less thing for you to worry about.

Carly: So things are okay between the two of you?

Janet: Why wouldn't they be?

Carly: I just thought after what happened last night --

Janet: You mean, after you accused me of ditching your daughter to hook up with an ex?

Carly: Look, I know things got way out of control, but I think I finally understand what happened so I can explain it to you.

Janet: Don't bother, don't bother. Jack told me what happened with Sage. And the way Parker couldn't even look me in the eye just now, I had a feeling he was in on it, too.

Carly: I'm sorry.

Janet: Why should you be sorry?

Carly: Well, they're my children. And they put you and Jack in a very tough situation.

Janet: Well, they were just doing what their mama asked them to.

Katie: How could this be happening?

Brad: That's the way I felt when I came in.

Katie: Why did you? Why didn't you stay away like you were supposed to?

Margo: That scarf was around her neck when she was found.

Dani: I don't understand. If it was around her neck, how did it come off?

Margo: Obviously, the crime scene was compromised. All right, I want a complete CSI. I want blood and hair samples, carpet fiber and a quick estimate for time of death.

Dani: Okay, I'll have the M.E. call as soon as he has one.

Margo: All right, that's all for now. Let's get out of here, too, Buddy.

Brad: You can't arrest us. We didn't do anything.

Margo: Don't talk. Don't talk. Just go. Don't talk.

Carly: Do you honestly think that I would use my children to try and make trouble for you and Jack?

Janet: Well, from what I've heard, it wouldn't be the first time. And now, thanks to Sage, you've got a really good reason for Jack to put off the wedding.

Carly: I know putting things on hold is troublesome for you.

Janet: Please, don't play the gracious lady, Carly. Not after what you've done.

Carly: Now wait a second. Just wait a second.

Carly: My conscience is completely clean. Can you honestly say the same?

Janet: What is that supposed to mean?

Carly: What it means, Janet, is that when it came down to it, you showed your true colors, didn't you, by dumping my daughter for some guy!

Janet: I did not dump Sage.

Carly: Okay, I guess leaving a child in the lobby of a busy hotel while you make time in the bar is okay with you.

Janet: Excuse me?

Carly: It's really no wonder that my children are concerned about you being their stepmother. And the way you pounced on their father without even knowing him. Well, they don't think you're good enough for him, and you know something? Neither do I.

Janet: And who is, Carly? You?

Carly: I didn't say that.

Janet: It was all an act, wasn't it? Pushing me and Jack together. You said I was the best thing that ever happened to him. You remember that? But really, what you wanted to know, was that he still loved you best.

Carly: What sort of sophomoric psychoanalysis is that?

Janet: What's the problem? Are you upset that I'm right? Are you ticked off that your plan didn't work? Because Jack and I are getting married, Carly, whether you like it or not. And we are going to do it when we decide. Not you. So walk away, bitch. For good this time.

Carly: "Bitch." Charming.

Liberty: Parker?

Parker: Hey, look, I know you said you weren't in the mood to hang out.

Liberty: I have a lot of homework to do.

Parker: Right, but I needed to see you.

Liberty: You already did.

Parker: Yeah, but you seemed kind of mad when you left.

Liberty: I guess I was.

Parker: Right, because you still think I did something to hurt your mom. But I didnít.

Liberty: Do you even remember the promise we made to each other? That we wouldn't be like our parents and we wouldn't sneak around? Do you even remember that?

Parker: Yeah, I remember. Okay. I did it.

Liberty: I knew it.

Parker: Yeah, but I didn't do it to hurt your mom. I already told you, this whole stepsister thing is a nightmare.

Liberty: I know, Parker. But things are already different for us. Even if our parents weren't getting married, you and I weren't going to be together like that. It's just not going to happen.

Parker: Don't say that.

Liberty: I have to, because you're not getting it. You keep thinking we're going to go back to the way things were, and we're not. I'm not doing this to be mean to you, either. I'm sorry, and I don't want to hurt you.

Parker: Please, please, just donít. All right? Just donít.

Lucinda: I don't owe you an explanation about anything. Anything. And anyway, there's nothing to explain.

Brian: I know you too well to believe that. There's something you don't want Lily to know.

Lucinda: My relationship with my daughter is none of your business.

Brian: Fine. But your relationship with me is. Or are you going to deny that we have one?

Lucinda: We're business associates.

Brian: Business associates?

Lucinda: Yeah.

Brian: Well, I think we're a little more than that and you know it. I kissed you. You kissed me back. But ever since then, you've been pushing me away.

Lucinda: Why don't you just let it go? Let it go.

Brian: I can't let it go, I have to know. Am I just a horrible kisser or is there a bigger reason why you're pushing me away?

Lucinda: You're a wonderful kisser.

Brian: That's a relief.

Lucinda: Okay, all right, 'cause you're such a good kisser, I'll tell you. And then I'm going to watch you walk away.

Carly: Hi.

Lily: Hey. You're in a hurry.

Carly: Yeah, well, I have sort of an emergency.

Lily: Oh, I hope it's not the kids.

Carly: No, it's Janet.

Lily: She needs another dress for the ball?

Carly: Well, if she does, she won't be asking me.

Lily: Oh, you and your new best friend have a falling out?

Carly: Big one. In fact, right now, I think that she's talking to Jack and telling him that I tried to use my kids to destroy their relationship.

Lily: Well, did you?

Carly: No, I did not, okay?

Lily: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, it is something you would do.

Carly: Okay. Well, I didn't this time. Especially now that they are engaged.

Lily: Emma told me. Are you okay?

Carly: I don't know. I guess so. I mean, I will be if my kids would stop freaking out and if Janet would stop thinking that I'm out to destroy her happily-ever-after. I've got to talk to Jack before he totally hates me.

Lily: No, you can't stop Janet from saying what she's going to say.

Carly: I can certainly try.

Lily: No, no, it's just going to make you look guiltier.

Carly: Well, what do you suggest I do?

Lily: Come with me.

Carly: Where to?

Lily: To a bar for a drink or two or three.

Carly: Sounds like your day has gone just as well as mine has.

Lily: Yeah, I've had better. What do you say, Carly?

Carly: I don't know. First coffee, now drinks. If you're not careful, I might start to think we're friends again.

Lily: Is that a yes?

[Margo sighs]

Margo: What were you doing in Spencer McKayís room?

Brad: I went to Metro to look for Henry. He wasn't there. I was on my way out, when Spencer called me.

Margo: And what did she say?

Brad: She said that she felt sorry that things got so out of hand. And that she wanted to meet up with me and "Repair the damage." Her words, not mine. I'm thinking, "Hell yeah!" My career is in the toilet and my marriage is hanging on by a read, all because of her. So I'm thinking, whatever I can do to turn things around --

Margo: All right. Well, whose idea was it to go and talk in her room?

Brad: Well, no oneís. We were supposed to meet in the lounge. She wasn't there. I asked the bartender if he'd seen her, he hadnít. So, I -- you know, I went up to her room.

Margo: How did you get in?

Brad: The door was open.

Margo: So, you say she was dead when you found her?

Brad: Yeah, she was. I mean, at least -- I think so at first. I thought she was messing with me, trying to scare me or something. But then, when I realized that wasn't the case, I did what I could to help her.

Margo: Meaning?

Brad: I took off the scarf off her neck, and I gave her CPR. I'm sorry for messing up the crime scene, but I had to try and save her, didn't I?

Margo: All right, so the hotel surveillance camera will verify what time you arrived there, and the bartender will tell us what time you went up to Ms. McKayís room.

Brad: Great, that's fine.

Margo: And any prints or marks found on her body, will I.D. the killer.

Brad: I hope it does.

Margo: Brad -- Spencer filed assault charges against you. She said that you attacked her after she rejected your advances.

Brad: My -- I didn't make any advances. She came after me!

Margo: And because of her lies, you stood to lose everything. Don't you think you were pretty angry?

Brad: You're damn straight I was angry! Margo, yeah, but not angry enough to want her dead. I did not kill her.

Margo: And you did not throw Leo Morrissey into the reservoir.

Brad: Oh, come on, Margo, that's not fair. He assaulted my daughter.

Margo: It presents a pattern, Brad!

Katie: I can't believe he went back to her room.

Jack: He was there before?

Katie: Yeah. Spencer had lied to Kim about him, so he went to confront her, and apparently, she was pushing him out of the door, and somehow, her blouse got ripped. It was an accident.

Jack: It's okay.

Katie: This is insane. I know it sounds insane.

Jack: Okay. Promise you won't get angry if I ask you something?

Katie: What?

Jack: Any possibility that he and Spencer were --

Katie: What?

Jack: I know the two of them were working together pretty closely. And you and Brad, from what little I gathered, you were having a tough time with things --

Katie: Brad was not having an affair with Spencer McKay!

Jack: Okay, I'm just playing devil's advocate, here. What if she threatened to tell you about them?

Katie: Stop it, okay? Jack, he didn't kill her!

Jack: I'm sorry. I get paid to look at all the possibilities. Can I get you a cup of coffee, or something?

Katie: Okay, yes -- I -- I might've had some suspicions. A little. And Margo has, too. But I can't believe he would do something like that!

Jack: Can't? Or don't want to?

Lily: Ugh.

Carly: Oh boy, did I need this.

[Glasses clink]

Lily: Cheers, mmm.

Lily: Janet really got to you, huh?

Carly: Ahh. Oh, it's not just her. I'm mad at myself.

Lily: You didn't do what I told you, and talk to Jack, did you?

Carly: No, I did, actually.

Lily: Well, what did he say?

Carly: "Will you marry me?"

Lily: What?

Carly: Not to me, though. To her. I walked in right as he was proposing to her.

Lily: Oh, Carly.

Carly: I know. It's completely pathetic, I know. And even after that, I gave it my best shot. He turned me down flat.

Lily: I am so sorry. I really thought you guys were going to work it out this time.

Carly: So did I. When I found him on that island, he wanted to give us another chance and I pushed him away.

Lily: You didn't just push him away. You, like, pushed him into Janet.

Carly: That's nice. Thank you for reminding me. Thank you.

Lily: To failed relationships.

Carly: Oh.

[Glasses clink]

Carly: Oh, wait, no. I thought that you and Holden were working things out.

Lily: We are. We are. I'm talking about my relationship with my mother.

Carly: What did she do?

Lily: What she always does -- she sticks her nose in where it doesn't belong. But this time, I had enough. And I -- I shut her out. From me, from the kids.

Carly: That must have been hard. You two have always been very close.

Lily: Yeah, maybe too close. She thought she could play God with my life. When Holden and I were arrested for Dusty's murder -- she just stood by and watched, knowing full well that he was alive.

Carly: Ooh. No wonder you shut her out.

Lily: I thought I was doing the right thing, but then, I see her at the hospital today, and it's like none of it matters. She's my mother and I'm worried about her.

Carly: Did she tell you why she was there?

Lily: Mmm. No. She barely even looked at me. I mean, it's no big surprise. I've been pretty brutal to her lately.

Carly: I can imagine.

Carly: Did she tell you why she was there?

Lily: Mmm. No. She barely even looked at me. I mean, it's no big surprise. I've been pretty brutal to her lately.

Carly: I can imagine. You've been dishing it out pretty good to a lot of us these days.

Lily: It's not like you didn't deserve it.

Carly: I know I did.

Lily: Hey Eddie, we need some more drinks over here.

Lucinda: You're going to regret asking me!

Brian: Didn't I tell you to stop telling me what I'm going to regret?

Lucinda: I am a cancer survivor. I mean, I was. But, it's recurred -- the cancer is back.

Brian: Oh --

Lucinda: That means, probably, a mastectomy. And -- you know, another one --

Brian: The whole nine yards.

Lucinda: Yeah, that's it.

Lucinda: Now I am an Amazon! You know, rrr -- with one breast. Of course, the other one is reconfigured and all of that. I will now be -- hmm -- I'll have to take up crossbow lessons. Or, I'll be dead.

Brian: Okay.

Lucinda: All right? So, I thought -- I thought I had beat this, but the beast is back, I do not know, now, whether I will be able to win this time.

Brian: You have to believe you can.

Lucinda: Under these circumstances, you can understand that I was rather happy that Lily has cut herself off from me, because that way we'll both be spared good-byes.

Brian: No, no, no, no. You're not going to say good-bye. You're not going to say good-bye to Lily, not to me, not to anyone. I'm not going to let you.

Lucinda: Oh, you're not going to let me? Please. I'm a very sick old lady.

Brian: No, no, no, no, no, no. You're a bold, brilliant, beautiful woman, and you are going to get through this, and I'm going to be there to see it happen.

Lucinda: You mean --

[Lucinda clears throat]

Lucinda: The hair falling out, and the nausea, and --

Brian: I don't care about of that.

Lucinda: Then what about me? I might care. So, okay? Whatever loveliness we might've found --

Brian: Just, just -- would you just --

Lucinda: Whatever things that might've been nice about --

Brian: Just, just do me a favor.

Lucinda: What?

Brian: Shut up.

Dani: The room contained evidence of only two sets of fingerprints. The victim's and Brad Snyderís.

Katie: Are you sure they were his?

Dani: Yeah, we have them on file from his last arrest.

Katie: Well, he's been in the room, before. Maybe the person who killed her was wearing gloves.

Dani: There's no evidence of anyone else being in the room at the time of the death, so --

Margo: What was that time?

Dani: According to the medical examiners, sometime between 5:15 and 5:45.

Margo: Surveillance cameras?

Dani: Brad entered the lobby at 5:21, he went to the bar at 5:28. He headed for the elevator.

Margo: Leave the file on my desk.

Dani: I'm really sorry.

Katie: No, no. There's no way. He could not have done this.

Janet: Jack, I need to talk to you about Carly --

[Katie cries]

Katie: What's wrong?

Jack: It's Brad.

Brad: Am I free to go?

Margo: I'm afraid not.

Brad: What is it? What happened?

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

Margo: You have the right to have an attorney present during any and all questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you. Do you understand?

Brad: I do.

Janet: Jack, you can't let this happen.

Jack: There's nothing I can do for him this time.

Brad: So, where are we going?

Margo: Down to holding.

Katie: Wait, Margo, please.

Margo: Oh -- five minutes.

Brad: Listen to me. Someone is playing a sick game here. I'm being used.

Katie: But who?

Brad: I don't know who, I don't know why --

Katie: I don't know what to believe any more. This is like a horrible nightmare and I can't wake up!

Brad: Listen to me. I did not try and seduce Spencer. I did not kill her. Katie, please. You are all I have. If you're not behind me, I have got nothing.

Katie: I believe you.

Janet: This is ridiculous. I've known Brad since high school. There's no way he's a murderer.

Jack: A few months ago, I would have said no way. Now? I just don't know.

Brian: You think you've got me figured out? Well, I don't scare off that easily. I'm not just going to be there for your chemo, I'm going to be in there with you -- I'm going to hold your hand, I'm going to read you boring magazine articles. Hell, I might even help you fit a wig.

Lucinda: Not necessary.

Brian: Well, I'll do whatever is necessary and then some. And not because I pity you, Lucinda. Because I like you -- a lot. And I think you like me, too.

Lucinda: Well, it's not that -- that's not what I'm talking about.

Brian: No, no, no, no. I know. You have trouble trusting people.

Lucinda: Yes. Yes.

Brian: Well, maybe I can help you get over that. Now, tell me everything the doctor said.

Lucinda: Oh, this is going to be really boring. Medical staff --

Brian: I know, I know, I know. And I promise you, it's the last time you'll have to get me up to speed. Because from this day forward, you are never going to another doctor's appointment without me.

Lily: I don't like being like this.

Carly: Oh, you mean cold and withholding and stubborn?

Lily: Got anything else you want to add?

Carly: I'm just calling it like I see it.

Lily: Well, I've learned something. Being cold and withholding makes people work harder to get back in my good graces.

Carly: People like Holden?

Lily: And my mother.

Carly: And people like me? Well, how am I doing? Am I making any progress?

Lily: Maybe.

Carly: So, despite the coffee and the drinks, we're still not bosom buddies?

Lily: Nope.

Carly: It's all right. I can wait.

Brad: Are you with me, no matter what?

Katie: I'm with you.

Brad: Good. Because if we're together, we can get through anything.

Margo: Okay, it's time.

[Katie cries]

Jack: What's your take on all this, boss?

Margo: Oh, man, he left a trail of evidence that leads directly to the crime. If Brad is innocent, and I pray for Katieís sake that he is, he's going to have a hell of a time proving it.

[Katie cries]

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Liberty: Why are you wearing those?

Henry: Brad did not kill this girl that means, someone else did.

Katie: Who?

Henry: That's what we have to find out!

Dani: Lose something?

Josie: I'm not your wife.

Dusty: I know, of course not. My wife's dead.

Emily: You hired a Jennifer lookalike in Ohio, and then you had that psychic send Dusty after her!
