Lily: What happened to you?

Holden: The new mare decided to jump the fence and play in the mud.

Lily: And you decided to play with her?

Holden: Right.

Lily: Don't -- don't touch me.

Holden: But I thought you liked kissing muddy cowboys.

Lily: I'd like it a lot better after you've taken a shower.

Holden: Oh, okay.

Lily: Have you talked to Luke yet today?

Holden: Is that who you were calling?

Lily: Yeah, I thought maybe he'd like to go to the hospital with me to see my mother.

Holden: Oh, well, that's a good idea. I think he'll like that. Why don't I shower up and we'll go together?

Lily: You're coming with me?

Holden: Yeah --

Lily: I thought you had to work.

Holden: No, I did all my work this morning at 4:00.

Lily: Oh, so sweet.

Holden: Call Luke. We'll pick him up on the way.

Lily: Voice mail. Hey, Luke. It's your mom. Your grandmother is doing well, but she has some news. I'm sure she'd like to tell you herself.

Brian: Good morning, Mrs. Wheatley.

Lucinda: Hey, I like the sound of that.

Brian: Here's the wedding breakfast I promised you.

Lucinda: Ha, ha, ha, can I have champagne yet?

Brian: Oh darn, one of the flutes is broken. Are Lily and Holden still coming?

Lucinda: Um, as far as I know.

Brian: I'll have to scrounge up a plastic cup.

Lucinda: Champagne in plastic?

Brian: Yeah, well, actually it's sparkling cider. At least until you're out of here. Then, we'll really celebrate.

Lucinda: Where are you going now?

Brian: To find another glass.

Lucinda: Oh --

Brian: Oh, oh, there's something else I forgot.

Lucinda: What?

Brian: This.

[Luke remembering Brian trying to kiss him]

Luke: Did that happen?

Carly: There you are. You were in there awhile. I was starting to worry.

Sage: I thought I was going to be sick.

Carly: Does your stomach hurt?

Sage: Do we have to go to court today?

Carly: Sage, there are a lot of people involved in this. It's not just me and your dad. There's the judge, and the lawyers, and -- it's not so easy to reschedule.

Sage: Even if I'm sick?

Carly: Are you sick or are you nervous?

Sage: I'll be fine. But could we maybe have muffins and hot chocolate later after court? When I don't have to see Janet anymore, I'll feel lots better.

Carly: Okay, I'll get the order to go, okay? Oh, would you like a peppermint? Make your tummy feel better. I'll take that order to go, please.

Sage: It smells like coffee in here. Can I wait outside?

Carly: Yeah, sure. I'll be right out. Just stay close to the door, okay?

Janet: Hi, Sage. Hey, I'm really glad I ran into you.

Sage: Why?

Janet: Well, I know that you must feeling pretty tense about the hearing this afternoon. I know I am.

Sage: You are?

Janet: Yeah. But you know what? It's not too late to call the whole thing off.

Lily: Jack.

Jack: Hey.

Lily: Come on in.

Jack: You -- are you on your way out?

Lily: To see my mother.

Jack: Yeah, I heard about Lucinda. How is she?

Lily: Recuperating. But she's doing well. Thank you for asking.

Jack: Good, good, good --

Lily: We're on our way to the hospital now.

Holden: Hey, Jack.

Jack: Hey, you know what, you're in a hurry. I'll get out of your hair. Call me later, okay? --

Holden: Wait, wait, what's going on?

Jack: No, um, you've got enough to worry about right now.

Lily: Jack, what is it?

Jack: I may need your help. Carly has sued for sole custody of Sage.

Lily: I'm going to let you two talk. I'll call Mother and tell her we're running late.

Jack: Lily, I didn't mean to -- sorry, I should have called. Carly's probably still a pretty sticky subject for you guys.

Holden: Not so much anymore. When's the custody hearing?

Jack: This afternoon.

Holden: What do you need me to do?

Jack: Help me stop Carly.

Janet: Sage, you and I are the only ones who know for sure that I really didn't hit you.

Sage: I'll call my mom. She's right inside.

Janet: You know what? Nothing bad will happen if you tell the truth. But if you keep on saying that I hit you when I didn't, you might not be able to see your dad so much anymore.

Sage: I can see my dad any time I want.

Janet: Okay, I'm not trying to scare you.

Sage: Yes, you are.

Janet: No, baby, I kind of understand why this is happening. Change is really scary for everybody. But I love your dad and he loves me. And I think that if you gave me just half a chance, you could find out that we can all be just one big, happy family.

Carly: You are not my daughter's family. And you never will be.

Holden: A character witness? That's what you need?

Jack: Yes, that's it.

Holden: Have you tried to talk to Carly about all of this?

Jack: Absolutely, Holden. Until I'm blue in the face. Listen, I was just hoping --

Holden: What?

Jack: You know what, I've taken up enough of your time. And I've got to meet Tom anyways.

Holden: You know what, I'll keep my cell on. Call me if you need me, I'll be at the courthouse in 20 minutes.

Jack: Thank you. My love to Lucinda.

Holden: Listen, um, I might have to cut out from the hospital a little early. Jack might need me as a character witness.

Lily: He needs more than that.

Holden: What do you mean?

Lily: He needs you to talk to Carly.

Holden: He didn't ask me to talk to Carly.

Lily: I think you should.

Carly: You have no business talking to my daughter. Sage, why don't you go inside and wait where it's warm, okay?

Janet: Ask her what I was saying. I really wasn't trying to make her feel bad.

Carly: I can't wait to tell the judge about this. You stalking Sage, bullying her.

Janet: Whoa, where do you get that? We were just having a nice, quiet conversation.

Carly: Uh-huh, what exactly did you say to her? Besides the part where you told her that you'd all be one big happy family without me?

Janet: I didn't say without you. I meant, all of us. You, me, Jack, all of us. I'm just trying to stop this stupid situation before it gets to court and we all end up getting hurt.

Carly: There's a simple way you can stop it.

Janet: How?

Carly: Just agree never to see Sage again.

Janet: How do you want me to do that when I'm marrying Jack?

Carly: Figure it out.

Janet: Hey, why are you doing this to him?

Carly: I am protecting my daughter.

Janet: How? By making sure he gets supervised visitation? To make sure that he can never come over our house, they can't hang out on super bowl, Father's day, his birthday?

Carly: It was his choice to believe you and not her.

Janet: Why do you hate me?

Carly: You know something, Janet? I'm actually really glad that you pulled this little stunt today.

Janet: I just asked her to tell the truth.

Carly: You spoke to Sage without Jack or me present. Big mistake. See you in court.

Holden: You want me to talk to Carly? Why?

Lily: Why not? You two were friends before you slept together --

Holden: Yeah, well, you say that like it's nothing. Lily, we almost got divorced because of all of that.

Lily: But we didnít. We're fine. And if there's a chance that you can help Jack -- why are you looking at me like that?

Holden: Because we're just starting to rebuild our lives. We're just starting to get back on track.

Lily: Is what we're building so shaky that you can't even have a conversation with Carly --

Holden: You know what, let's just go, okay? Your mother, she's waiting for us.

Lily: Holden, I want our marriage back.

Holden: We are back. We're living under the same roof, we're sleeping in the same bed.

Lily: No, we are tiptoeing around each other. We're so afraid to make the wrong move. We're polite. Even when we have sex.

Holden: It takes time.

Lily: It takes trust and passion. And we're both so afraid of arguing that we barely even speak.

Holden: Yeah, well, you're not having a problem with that now, are you?

Lily: I hate that we're so cautious. So careful not to mention the affairs or our separation or anything unpleasant --

Holden: Okay, so you're saying that you want to argue?

Lily: Yeah, I want to fight with you. I want to laugh out loud. I want to have crazy, wild sex while you're muddy. I want us back.

Holden: What does that have to do with Carly and Jack?

Lily: I don't want to turn out like Carly and Jack. Using our kids and court battles to gain any kind of contact.

Holden: Do you think they still love each other?

Lily: Don't you?

Holden: I do.

Lily: Then why are you afraid to talk to Carly?

Holden: Why don't you talk to her, if it's not a problem?

Lily: Because she would see it as an attack and not as if I was trying to help her --

Holden: Lily, what if she needs me for something?

Lily: Needs you for what?

Holden: I don't know. What if she needs me to spackle a wall, fix a heater -- what if she needs me -- what if she needs a shoulder to cry on?

Lily: Then you'd help her out. You're her friend. Holden, we need to trust each other again. We used to do that.

Holden: We're getting there.

Lily: Then you'll talk to Carly?

Holden: I don't believe this.

Lily: And look, I promise that I won't make anything out of it. I trust you. I'll see you when you're done, okay?

Holden: And what I want really doesn't matter here, right?

Lily: That's all that matters.

Luke: When did I leave this here? Gee, Mom, call much?

[Luke listens to the voicemail]

Lily: Hi, Luke. It's Mom. Your grandmother is doing well. But there's some news. I'm sure she'd like to tell you herself. So hopefully I'll see you at the hospital. Please come, Sweetie. It would mean a lot to her.

Lily: Hey.

Lucinda: Hey.

Lily: Don't stand on my behalf. Morning, Mother. You're looking remarkably well.

Lucinda: Thank you --

Brian: See, I told you so. I'm glad you're here. Now we can eat.

Lucinda: Where's Holden? I hope he's coming because he's got a lot of food.

Lily: He had something he had to take care of.

Brian: Should we wait?

Lily: No, no, we can start without him. I think he'll be here soon.

Carly: What are you doing here?

Holden: It wasn't my idea, all right? Is Sage here?

Carly: She's next door helping Sandy Lebo. I take it you know that she's out of school today?

Holden: I heard about the hearing.

Carly: I'm going to kill Jack. Why did he have to go running to you? I'm sure he told you to come over here and talk some sense into me, right?

Holden: No, Carly, it wasn't Jack --

Carly: I just got Lily to start talking to me --

Holden: Carly, it wasn't Jack. It was Lily.

Carly: Why?

Holden: Hell if I know. I was working at 4:00 this morning, so Lily and I could spend the day at the hospital. I hadn't eaten and she starts in on me about all this stuff --

Carly: About your relationship?

Holden: What is it with women? It's like everything is going along fine and then all of a sudden, bam, they hit you with things you've been doing wrong. A list of things you've been doing wrong for the last 20 years.

Carly: So what did you wrong, Holden?

Holden: I'm not fighting with her.

Carly: Oh.

Holden: You understand that?

Carly: Sure.

Holden: Well, why is not fighting such a bad thing?

Carly: Well, it depends. How often did you fight when you first started dating?

Holden: Constantly.

Carly: And how often did you fight when you first got married?

Holden: At least once a day. We know each other better now.

Carly: And how often were you wearing your wedding band back then?

Holden: Lily's not wearing hers yet, so --

Carly: Then why don't you make the first move then?

Holden: Thanks for the advice.

Carly: Anytime. Okay, so now you can go on and start your lecture about how I should back off this custody thing, right?

Holden: Jack asked me to be a character witness and I agreed to do before I had a chance to think it through.

Carly: Oh, he is your cousin, so -- do you think Tom is going to ask you about our affair? What will you say?

Holden: I'm going to tell him that I was the one who was married and that you were the one trying to convince me to go back to my wife.

Carly: Thank you. But no matter how you spin it, I'm the one who slept with her best friend's husband.

Holden: Why risk losing, Carly? Just walk away.

Carly: My child told me that someone hit her. If I don't believe Sage, if I don't stand up for her -- I really don't deserve to be her mother.

Tom: Carly has a couple of strikes against her. A couple of arrests, that affair with Holden.

Janet: Hi, how's it going?

Jack: Hey, you look very sedate. Are you sure you're my fiancťe?

Janet; oh, let me -- let me remove all doubt. Remember me?

Jack: Yes.

Janet: Hi, Tom.

Tom: Hi. Good call on the wardrobe. Everything matters in the eyes of the court.

Janet: Well, in that case, I think I should tell you I ran into Carly this morning. We had words.

Jack: Why?

Janet: She caught me talking to Sage.

Lucinda: Honey, why don't you give Holden a call?

Lily: I don't want to interrupt him. I'm sure he'll get there as soon as he can.

Brian: Let's toast.

Lucinda: No, I think we should wait. I think we should wait and toast real champagne.

Brian: This from the woman who rushed me to the altar. I'm sorry, but I have -- I can't wait to say this.

Lucinda: If you insist.

Brian: I have had what some might consider an interesting life. But I never really looked toward my future. Expecting it to be, well, expected.

Lucinda: Surprise.

Brian: Indeed. I am truly surprised and blessed by loving you, Lucinda. We're going to have a wonderful future.

Lucinda: And I intend to see to it that it lasts a long, long time.

Brian: I wouldn't have it any other way. To my beautiful bride.

Jack: Why would you do that? Janet, why would you talk to Sage?

Janet: Because when she lied about me hitting her, she had no idea it would turn into something this big. I was just trying to stop it. I'm sorry.

Jack: No, your heart was in the right place.

Janet: Did I kill the case, Tom?

Tom: No, no, we'll just have to hit harder than we planned. They'll keep trying to make it about you. I'll keep bringing it back to Carly. Either way, you both need to be prepared.

Jack: To lose?

Tom: No, to win. Once I go through the litany of Carly's mistakes as a mom, not only does she not a have a snowball's chance in hell of getting sole custody, the judge may remove all three children from her care into yours.

Carly: Janet hit her. I saw the mark on her face.

Holden: Just how stupid do you think she is?

Carly: Janet? Not at all. She knows what's what.

Holden: Do you really think that she would risk losing Jack by slapping his kid?

Carly: She lost control. It happens.

Holden: Around Jack? Your ex-husband, the detective? Not likely.

Carly: Holden, I know what I'm doing.

Holden: And instead of working it out, you file for sole custody?

Carly: Because Jack is going to marry Janet and Sage is terrified of her.

Holden: Do you honestly believe that it would be better for Sage not to see her father as opposed to facing Janet?

Carly: She'll see Jack.

Holden: Supervised visits with somebody there watching? Jack won't be able to take her to school. Won't be able to go horseback riding with her.

Carly: I didn't start this.

Holden: No, but you can finish it.

Lily: Luke, I'm so happy you could make it. You look tired, Sweetie.

Luke: I -- I must have heard something wrong. I thought Brian called Grandmother --

Lucinda: Old Brian and Lucinda got married last night.

Luke: And nobody told me?

Lily: Oh, I tried. I left you tons of messages, Honey. You didn't pick up your phone. Are you okay?

Luke: Yeah, I'm fine.

Lucinda: It's a shock, I mean, to everyone. But not to us. Isn't it wonderful?

Luke: Well, you look wonderful. I'm glad the surgery was a success. But I think --

Brian: Its okay, Luke. Don't worry about it. I mean, we are bound to get a lot of stunned reactions. From this point on, we'd better get used to it.

Lucinda: Yeah. Join us in a toast. It's cider, Darling. Anybody can have it.

Luke: No, I'm okay.

Lily: It's a celebration.

Brian: Look, I'll get another glass.

Luke: Will you -- will you excuse me for just one minute? Brian!

Brian: Keep your voice down. I don't want her upset.

Luke: She was nice to you. She defended you. She never hurt you.

Brian: What are you talking about?

Luke: About you trying to rip off my grandmother. What happens when you grant a wish?

Brian: I love Lucinda. She loves me.

Luke: You lied to her.

Brian: In what respect?

Luke: About what you did to me last night?

Brian: You were in bad shape and I took care of you.

Luke: Is that what you call it?

Brian: You were drunk. I took you home and I tried to comfort you.

Luke: You kissed me.

Brian: Did I do that?

Lucinda: Tell me about the argument you had with Holden.

Lily: I never said -- I pushed him to do something he didn't want to do. Now I wish I hadnít.

Brian: I won't argue with you, Luke. It's possible I kissed you.

Luke: On the lips.

Brian: Well, even if I did, don't read more into it than what it really was.

Luke: What am I supposed to think?

Brian: I come from a touchy-feely family. We hug, we kiss. But I'm sorry it made you uncomfortable. Now, go in and be with your grandmother. I'll find another glass and then we can all have a toast.

Luke: Are you kidding me?

Brian: Look, she just got through major surgery. She's happy. Don't take that away from her.

Lucinda: I can't wait until I'm well enough to get out of this hospital.

Lily: Mother, I know how much you love to work, but you're going to have to take --

Lucinda: Work? No, not work. I'm looking forward -- I'm looking forward to a little stretch of happy, married life.

Lily: Have you slept with him?

Lucinda: No. We didn't get to it. But it will be okay, I know that, I know it.

Lily: Lucinda Walsh so declares and so it is.

Lucinda: It is, he's attractive. And I -- my reconstructive surgery, if he likes them out to there, they'll be there --

Lily: Mother, you make it sound so easy.

Lucinda: Well, it is, unless you make it difficult.

Lily: I can't believe some of the things I said to Holden.

Lucinda: What -- what set it off?

Lily: Things are fine. Good, great. I pushed for perfect.

Lucinda: Perfection's nice. But if you want it, you've got to be prepared to give it.

Janet: This is awful.

Jack: We can handle all the kids if we have to.

Janet: Sure we can. But taking them away from their mother? Jack, poor little Sage. And Carly, what about Carly?

Tom: You're worried about hurting Carly?

Janet: Yes, I am. Aren't you?

Jack: Tom, are you sure there's no other way?

Tom: Let's just stick to the matters at hand. We're going to hope that facing a judge is going to have a positive effect on Sage, and she'll change her story. But if Carly's been coaching her --

Jack: No, she hasn't -- she hasn't -- Carly would lie through her teeth to get what she wants, but she wouldn't lean on Sage to do it. The only reason she's pressing this is because she believes Sage.

Tom: Then the judge looks to Carly and weighs her effectiveness as a custodial parent. So, Sage tells the truth, she lies, either way, she still may come home with you.

Janet: So even if you win --

Jack: I'll hurt -- I'll hurt my daughter.

Carly: Go home, Holden. Go back to Jack and Lily and tell them your mission was a success.

Holden: Carly, what do you think I'm doing here?

Carly: You're here to make me doubt myself and my daughter.

Holden: Carly, no.

Carly: I was going to go into that courtroom strong. Protecting my child. And now I've got me worried about you on the stand. I cannot lose. I cannot lose my baby.

Holden: If I put my arm around you right now --

Carly: I'll break it off. And then I'll send it to Lily so she could beat you over the head with it.

Holden: That's what I thought.

Carly: It's just not fair. Jack's moved on to Janet. You've moved back to Lily. And here I am.

Holden: Carly --

Carly: No, I'm not asking for sympathy and I'm really trying not to feel sorry for myself, but sometimes being so alone can be real hard.

Holden: And sometimes you make it easier on yourself by making it hard on everyone else. ,

Carly: Get out, Holden.

Holden: What did I say?

Carly: You think that I'm putting my daughter through a custody battle so I can get revenge?

Holden: Isn't that at least part of it?

Carly: Get out of my house.

Holden: It's a reasonable question, Carly.

Carly: Sage told me that Janet hit her.

Holden: I realize that --

Carly: And if this had happened to one of your kids, forget court, you would have pounded somebody into a bloody pulp and asked questions later. But if I try to do the right thing, I'm some sort of some selfish, vengeful shrew?

Holden: I know you think what you're doing is right --

Carly: I left my kids. I left them. And no matter how many cookies I bake or how many school plays I attend, I cannot make up for that.

Holden: And you think that this will?

Carly: All right, say I back off? Say I lay off the court case and I try to make nice with Jack and Janet? What if I do all of that to make my life easier --

Holden: Carly, here's what I think --

Carly: And what if Sage was telling the truth all along?

Holden: I think that Sage is a little girl who wants her mommy and daddy back together again. How far do you think someone would go to make that happen? And better yet -- better yet, how far would you go to make sure that you got something that you really wanted?

Janet: Well, we have a little time before court. Do you want to get something to eat or something?

Jack: How do I stop this? There's got to be a way.

Janet: Go back to Carly.

Jack: I did that. That's how we got into this mess.

Janet: No, Honey, we got into this mess because I volunteered to baby-sit for Sage. She locked me in a closet and claimed I hit her.

Jack: No, you didn't start this. And neither did Sage. I can't even blame Carly on this one.

Janet: What, are you blaming yourself?

Jack: Hey, I walked out on her. I moved out. I told her it was over. And I meant it. I really meant it. But I never stayed gone.

Janet: Why not?

Jack: She needed me. And I wanted her. And there was a guilt about breaking up the home, and what it was doing to the kids. And I tried living there, I've tried not living there. There was so many mixed signals. It's no wonder that Sage is confused.

Janet: Are you confused, Jack?

Jack: No. Janet, I am not. Loving Carly was complicated and it was painful at times.

Janet: Well, there must have been some good times.

Jack: Yeah, there were. Of course, there were. But with you, it's all good. Especially the food.

Janet: And the sex --

Jack: No --

Janet: Don't forget about the sex.

Jack: The sex is unforgettable.

Janet: Go talk to Carly.

Jack: Talking won't do any good. No, I've got to get through to Carly once and for all that what we had was broken and it can't be fixed.

Janet: What? What are you thinking?

Jack: I know what we have to do. We need to get married.

Brian: Sorry, Luke, this is the best I could find. But I want to get back to Lucinda.

Luke: Stop acting like nothing happened.

Brian: Oh, stop making such a big deal out of it. Don't you have friends that joke around with you like this?

Luke: This wasn't a joke, Brian. And I can't ignore it. I'm going to tell my grandmother.

Lily: Your bride is asking for you.

Brian: I'll go right in.

Luke: This marriage is a mistake.

Lily: Your father and I felt the same way.

Luke: And you didn't stop it?

Lily: Stop Lucinda Walsh? Besides, she's a good judge of character. And Brian isn't after her money.

Luke: Well, how do you know that? Mom, you barely even know the guy.

Lily: He drew up a pre-nup without even being asked. And Luke, when I got here this morning, they were in bed together.

Luke: No way.

Lily: Nothing was going on, but he was holding her. And he's so sweet to her.

Luke: I've got to go talk to her.

Lily: Luke, I know you don't like him.

Luke: Mom, the guy is a snake.

Lily: And you know this how? That's what I thought. You have an opinion about Brian based on instinct, not fact.

Luke: Mom --

Lily: Luke, this isn't about you. Do you know how terrifying this cancer recurrence was for your grandmother?

Luke: Of course I do --

Lily: He's not only nursed her through this, he's made her excited about life.

Luke: Yeah, but Mom --

Lily: He loves her, Luke. And you need to accept that and allow your grandmother and Brian to be what they are, happily married newlyweds.

Janet: Let's get something straight, Mister. You and me getting married is about the two of us joining together forever and ever amen. It is not about Carly, making sure she knows that you two are done. Do you got it?

Jack: Got it.

Janet: Good.

Jack: Can you forgive me?

Janet: Maybe.

Jack: Come here.

Janet: A little to the left and I'm yours.

Jack: Good and let's get married right away.

Janet: No, I'm not doing that --

Jack: We keep easing Sage into this, waiting for her to get used to the idea that we're together, it's not working.

Janet: So what -- is our wedding supposed to be shock therapy for your daughter?

Jack: We need to send a signal. That's what I'm saying. A clear signal that there is no point in making up stories or playing tricks to try to get me and Carly back together. Carly will move on with her life. It will work, Janet. It will work.

Janet: All right.

Jack: You mean that?

Janet: All right, yes, I mean it. Let's get married. Whenever you want to. Let's get this hearing over with.

Jack: I love you.

Janet: You owe me. And you're going to pay up by telling me you love me every day for the rest of your life.

Jack: It's a deal. It's a deal.

[Cell phone rings]

Jack: Snyder.

Holden: Hey, Jack. I just wanted to let you know that I spoke to Carly.

Jack: You did?

Holden: Yeah, Lily thought it might help.

Jack: How did it go?

Holden: It didn't go so well. She's dug in and I sort of don't blame her.

Jack: You can't exactly -- Janet didn't hit Sage, Holden.

Holden: Oh, you're sure of that but she isnít.

Jack: I know.

Holden: You know, Jack, I really don't want to hurt her. Talking about the affair and all of that. But I'll be there if you need me.

Jack: I need you. There's no way around it.

Holden: All right, I'll meet you at the courthouse.

Carly: Come on, Sage. It's time to go. Oh, don't you look pretty? Very grown up.

Sage: Thanks. After court, can we go to Al's? Just you, Daddy, and me?

Carly: Sage, you have to understand something. No matter what you say to the judge, it's not going to stop your father from marrying Janet.

Sage: Even though she hit me?

Carly: He doesn't believe that happened.

Sage: But it did!

Carly: Well, then let's stop it from happening again, okay?

Sage: Mom, Janet told me something today.

Carly: What's that?

Sage: That maybe the judge would say I can't see Daddy anymore. I don't want to see Janet, but I want to see Daddy.

Carly: Honey, you'll see your father. It won't be like it was before. They'll be somebody there to supervise the visits.

Sage: Like you. You could be there.

Carly: No. Not me. It would be an officer of the court. I don't think your father will want to be around me after today.

Sage: Ever?

Carly: But I can take it, okay? If it keeps you safe I can deal with anything. Come on, let's go.

Sage: Mom, wait.

Carly: What is it, Sage?

Sage: I don't want to talk to the judge.

Carly: Why not?

Sage: Because I want to be able see Daddy.

Carly: What about Janet? Aren't you afraid of her? You don't think she'll hit you? Has she ever hit you? Oh, Sage. Why?

Sage: Mom, are you mad at me?

Carly: I am very -- I am very sad about what you've done. Do you know how wrong it was, don't you?

Sage: I don't like Janet. I just wanted you and Daddy to be together.

Carly: Sage, your father and I are divorced. We are not going to be together.

Sage: You might.

Carly: No. Never. We don't love each other that way anymore. Your father loves Janet. Can you please, please try to like her?

Sage: I don't think so.

Carly: Go to your room. We'll talk more about this later.

Sage: I don't want to apologize to Janet.

Carly: Neither do I.

Lily: I'll be right there. Bye.

Luke: Was that Dad? Is he coming?

Lily: No, he wants me to come home.

Luke: You guys aren't having problems again?

Lily: I hope not. Listen, will you tell your grandmother that I'll op by later?

Luke: You expect me to go in there by myself?

Lily: I expect you to do the right thing.

Luke: Run Brian out of town?

Lily: I want you to go in there and tell your grandmother how happy you are for her.

Luke: But I'm not.

Lily: Pretend.

Lucinda: Where did Lily and Luke go?

Brian: Actually, I wanted this moment alone with you. Because I have a surprise. It's -- its private.

Lucinda: Oh, you had time to buy me a ring?

Brian: I bought us rings. What's the point of marrying the most amazing woman in the world if I can't brag about it?

Lucinda: What's the point, indeed?

Brian: It's simple and if you would prefer something more elaborate --

Lucinda: I love it.

Brian: Can I have my Princeton class ring back first?

Lucinda: I have to give up Princeton?

Brian: Put it in my pocket.

Lucinda: Ohh. Are you having second thoughts?

Brian: No. I'm just looking at this beautiful hand that you are giving me in marriage. It's like you.

Lucinda: Curiously well preserved?

Brian: It's smooth, strong, elegant. Mine.

Lucinda: Compassionate, pushy, loving. Mine.

Carly: Hi.

Jack: Hi.

Carly: I was hoping I could have a word with you.

Jack: We were on our way to the hearing.

Carly: There isn't going to be a hearing, Jack. I'm no longer filing for sole custody of Sage.

Jack: What changed your mind?

Janet: Uh, I'll let you guys talk.

Carly: No, stay, Janet. I owe you an apology. Sage admitted she lied.

Janet: Oh, thank God.

Jack: How is she? Where is she?

Carly: She's at home. She's fine. She's in her room. She knows what she did was wrong.

Jack: I want to see her, Carly.

Carly: And I'm sure she'll want to see you, too. But I think today, she just needs a little time. If that's okay?

Jack: Yeah, sure. Of course.

Carly: I should go. I never meant -- I'm very sorry.

Jack: Carly? I'm sorry, too.

Janet: Well, we dodged that bullet. What should we do now?

Jack: What do you say we go home and get you out of those sensible clothes?

Janet: Hey, I thought you wanted to get married as soon as possible.

Jack: Hey, just tell me when.

Holden: How's Lucinda?

Lily: Ecstatic. Luke showed up. He was a little shocked at first. But so was I. He'll come around when he sees how good Brian is for my mother. I'm sorry.

Holden: What for?

Lily: I never should have pushed you to go see Carly.

Holden: True.

Lily: And all that stuff about us being too careful with each other was --

Holden: That's also true. Guess what? Jack called. Carly dropped the suit.

Lily: That's wonderful. What did you say to her?

Holden: I don't know. I don't really remember. I do remember something else she said, though. She asked me how often I wear my wedding ring these days?

Lily: What did you tell her?

Holden: Never.

Lily: Did you tell her why?

Holden: I told her that you don't wear yours. When you have something as precious as a ring or a marriage, you shouldn't keep it in your pocket or --

Lily: In your jewelry box.

Holden: Right. What you need to do is keep it close, where you can see it.

Lily: This has quite a few scrapes on it.

Holden: Increases the value. I like it that way.

Lily: I love you.

Holden: I love you.

On the next "As the World Turns"

Henry: What the hell are you doing here?

Dani: I'm conducting a police investigation and you are under arrest.

Katie: They got to Henry to send a message to you.

Paul: We're having a little girl.

Meg: I know.

Dusty: What I feel when I'm with you is real. Whether it's Jenniferís spirit or not. Whatever it is, I don't want to lose it.
