Brad: Well, hair and make-up think I'm innocent.

Katie: Good. Once Dani finds Spencer alive and well in Chicago, everyone will know it.

Brad: What's taking her so long?

Katie: Cops have to be thorough. Did you look over the notes?

Brad: Yeah. I mean, do you think we should tape this segment now that, you know, Kim's out of town? She did fire me.

Katie: Once you're cleared of Spencer's murder and Kim sees that we still have our on-air couple mojo, she's gonna hire you back in a second.

Brad: I don't know how you can be so positive after everything that's happened.

Katie: Because I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Spencer's alive. It's only a matter of time before she's found. And then Henry will be released, my mystery cyber-bully will stop making threats. And best of all, you will no longer be a murder suspect.

Brad: It's good all around.

Katie: Right. Okay, let's roll!

Assistant: Places, everyone.

Margo: Yeah, I don't want to jump the gun either. But just send me the forensics report over to me, and I'll look at it. Thank you. So you just get back from Chicago?

Dani: Mm-hmm.

Margo: Did you find the delivery guy that Brad and Katie said could positively I.D. Spencer?

Dani: I did.

Margo: And?

Dani: I hate to say this, but I'm afraid that the Spencer that Brad and Katie saw in Chicago is nothing more than a figment of their imagination.

Margo: Oh, I was so afraid of that.

Tom: Hey, morning. Looks like somebody's been busy.

Casey: Yeah, but you know what they say about breakfast being the most important meal of the day. You want to join me?

Tom: I can't, actually. Speaking of which, what are your plans today?

Casey: Basically, this. You know, look how much food I have. It's gonna take me a while. It's not like I have any pressing engagements.

Tom: Perhaps you should use this time to set some up. You see, your mom and I made a decision last night.

Casey: Oh, that doesn't sound good.

Tom: You've have exactly two weeks to find a job, or you find somewhere else to live.

Alison: Luke, wait! Are you avoiding me?

Luke: I don't want another lecture, Alison.

Alison: I wasn't going to give you one.

Luke: Oh, yeah, right. You and Casey enlisted Noah on lecture duty.

Alison: The only reason Casey had Noah call you was because we were worried about you. I mean, you were really trashed the other night when you left Yo's.

Luke: Well, I'm fine now.

Alison: Good. Because you know, drinking can really wreck your kidneys. And --

Luke: All right. You know what, Alison? Please, spare me the diagnosis. You're not even real a nurse yet.

Alison: Luke!

Luke: I'm fine.

Alison: You just almost passed out. I'm going to call your parents --

Luke: No, no, no! Please, you can't do that!

Lucinda: Lily, Darling?

Lily: Yes? Is everything all right?

Lucinda: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Lily: How did you enjoy your first night in our home?

Lucinda: Of course, it was just fine, darling. Darling, this morning is my post-op visit at the hospital.

Lily: I remember, Mother. I won't be upset if you don't want me to go with you.

Lucinda: No, on the contrary. It would like it very much if you would come with me. If you would --

Lily: Of course. Of course I'd come.

Lucinda: Because I have a lot of questions about the reconstructive --

Lily: I know.

Lucinda: I just need someone with me.

Brian: Hello.

Lucinda: Oh, hi.

Brian: Ready to go?

Lucinda: Brian, why don't you sit this one out? Why not? Because Lily has offered to take me to the hospital, and you have foundation work. Why don't you take a break from --?

Brian: I don't need a break.

Lucinda: Well, I'm just trying to save you from all the tedious medical procedures.

Brian: I am your husband. It is my job to be with you every tedious step of the way. And I love my work.

Lucinda: Okay, fine. But Lily's coming, too.

Brian: The more the merrier.

Lucinda: Okay.

Katie: Since they say the ultimate test that you're wearing the right perfume is how your significant other responds to it, we have blindfolded Brad.

Brad: Aka, Katie's significant other.

Katie: And we're going to see how he responds to some of my favorite perfumes. What do you think of that one?

Brad: It stinks.

Katie: I wear this all the time.

Brad: No, that smells really foul.

Katie: I'm sorry. Cut for a second. Can we take five? Listen, I know Kim likes it when we banter. But isn't that going a little far?

Brad: You don't smell that?

Katie: Oh, God. That is not perfume.

Brad: Yeah, it smells like rotten garbage or something. Hey, excuse me, Dana. Do you know where that smell's coming from?

Assistant: No, but everyone's been complaining. And it seems to be coming from your locker.

Katie: Oh, Dana was right. It's definitely coming from your locker. Did you forget to clean it out before you left?

Brad: I don't know, I was kind of hoping I'd be back.

Katie: God knows what is, the way he eats.

Brad: That is not a food smell. That smells like a mouse, like, crawled in there and died in there.

Security guard: Any chance you still have the key?

Brad: Yeah, guess I forgot to turn it in after I got fired.

Security guard: Go ahead, open it up.

Katie: Oh my God!

Brad: Spencer.

Security guard: Keep the crew out.

Brad: How the hell did that get in there?

Security guard: I'm calling the police.

Brad: How is this even possible? We just saw her yesterday.

Katie: We don't know its Spencer.

Brad: But the hair and the build --

Katie: Just look at her face. That's how we're going to know if it's her or not.

Brad: Right. You go ahead.

Katie: She was in your locker!

[Phone rings]

[Both gasp]

[Katie gags]

Dani: Katie's still not picking up, huh?

Margo: It's just going straight to voicemail.

Dani: This must be so hard from you -- Brad being a murder suspect and your brother-in-law.

Margo: Yeah, well -- I can't believe he would lie about Spencer McKay, and that he would get Katie to lie, too. She's had so much trouble with all of her marriages. I was just so hoping this one would work out.

Cop #1: We just got a call from WOAK. You better get down there now.

Margo: Now what are -- oh! Oh!

Katie: Yeah, there was this horrible smell.

Brad: When I opened up the locker, then --

Katie: And she fell out.

Brad: Yeah.

Margo: And you had no idea how she got there?

Brad: Well, how could I? I haven't opened that thing since before I was fired.

Margo: Did you touch it?

Brad: Well, I pulled back the plastic.

Margo: Oh, Brad, didn't you learn anything from the last time?

Brad: How else were we supposed to see if it was Spencer or not?

Katie: Except we still don't know, because whoever that is does not have a face anymore. And we saw Spencer yesterday. What? You found her, didn't you?

Dani: No, I didnít.

Brad: Well, what about the delivery guy at the diner? I mean, did you talk to him?

Dani: I did, yes.

Brad: Well, didn't he tell you where she was?

Dani: No. What he told me is that he hadn't seen Spencer in months, and that he was getting worried that something bad had happened to her.

Brad: That doesn't make any sense. He's the one that told us that she was alive!

Dani: Maybe you misunderstood, or --

Katie: We are not making this up!

Margo: Oh, would you please just call forensics so we can get a positive I.D.?

Dani: Yeah.

Margo: Come on, Brad. You're coming with me, down to the station.

Brad: Oh, I don't believe this!

Katie: No, you can't think that he put that there!

Margo: Let's go.

Dani: Hi. Yeah, everything went according to plan. Poor Spencer. It wasn't pretty. Yeah, well, you owe me for this one.

Casey: I get why you and Mom are mad.

Tom: I don't think you do.

Casey: So this is what the ultimatum is about -- teaching me a lesson?

Tom: Well, you haven't learned any on your own, have you?

Casey: Do you know how hard it's going to be for me to look for a job with that little stint at Statesville on my resume?

Tom: There are plenty of organizations that help place people with prison records.

Casey: Yes, yes, I got that list you gave me.

Tom: Then you should refer to that. Or talk to your parole officer about other options.

Casey: What options? Busboy? Dishwasher? Janitor?

Tom: Are you in position to be picky?

Casey: So I should just accept anything --

Tom: Well, you're an ex-con who got expelled from college and has no job. You know, a little menial labor might be just what you need right now.

Casey: Okay. So if I don't find a job in two weeks, that's it? I'm out on the street?

Tom: If you don't exhaust all your possibilities, there will consequences.

Casey: I cannot believe you're doing this right now.

Tom: Your mom and I don't want to do this right now.

Casey: Yeah, all right, okay.

Tom: However, it's the only way we can come up with, to try to make you understand what it's like to finally become a responsible adult. So if you would like to talk about this later, when mother and I are both here, we can do that.

Casey: Can't wait.

Tom: Hey, good luck.

Casey: Thanks. For nothing.

Luke: Hey, you feel better??

Alison: You're the one who could barely stand.

Luke: Alison, I just got a little bit dizzy. Don't be such a drama queen about it.

Alison: Are you drunk? Is that why you're being such a jerk? You are! Why would you do that, like, when you know that --?

Luke: Okay, Alison, Alison -- please, just stop. You sound like Noah. Or worse, you sound like Brian -- my step-grandfather's taken a very keen interest in my well-being.

Alison: Well, Noah loves you. And Brian, I don't really know him. But I'm sure, because of your grandmother, he really cares about you.

Luke: Oh, yeah. Brian cares. Although I'm not sure it's about my grandmother. So you see? I'm fine. You've got nothing to worry about.

Alison: Okay, okay. No more lectures. I know better than anybody, that nobody's going to stop you from self-destructing but you. But I can't ignore the dizzy spells.

Luke: Alison --

Alison: Even if I'm not real a nurse yet, I know that it could be a serious symptom. Like maybe your blood pressure's dropped, and maybe you do have a kidney infection.

Luke: Okay, well, then I'll drink tons of water.

Alison: Okay, if you won't let me call your parents, would you just let me get you checked out by a doctor?

Luke: No. No way.

Alison: Okay. What if I promise to make it completely confidential? If you can't do this for you, Luke, just please do it for me. I couldn't live with myself if something happened to you because I let you go.

Luke: Okay. Fine. I'll go. I have to wash up first.

Alison: Okay. Are you gonna -- you're not gonna try to, like, sneak out the back way, are you?

Luke: Well, if I do, would you let me go? Promise me that you won't call my parents.

Alison: I promise. Hey, it's Alison. Luke's in trouble again. Can you meet me at Memorial? And now.

Luke: You didn't think you could handle me, Ali? Had to bring in the big guns?

Casey: You think I'm a big gun?

Alison: Actually, I thought you might need a punching bag.

Luke: Look, I'm -- I'm really sorry about the other night. I shouldn't have gone off on you guys.

Casey: Hey, no, forget it.

Alison: Oh, wait, there's Joshua -- the resident I told you guys about. Okay, so you guys get in there, and then I'll just get him up to speed. Okay?

Casey: He looks like he's checking you out. Are you sure he doesn't want to be a little more than friends?

Alison: Okay, just shut up and get in there. Hey, thank you so much for doing this.

Joshua: I'm not sure that such a great idea. I'm just an intern and I should really have an attending present. If someone finds out --

Alison: They wonít. Believe me, Luke doesn't want anyone knowing about this any more than you do.

Joshua: What exactly do you want me to do?

Alison: Just take a look at him, check his vitals. And if you really think he's sick, you know hopefully, I can convince him to get a legitimate appointment, okay? Okay, Luke, this is Joshua. Joshua.

Joshua: Hi, Luke.

Luke: I already told Alison that I'm fine.

Joshua: She's hard to say no to, huh?

Casey: You want to go to the cafeteria? Do you?

Alison: Only you would think of food right now.

Casey: I didn't eat -- I didn't eat breakfast! Luke? Joshua? You guys want anything? Don't say I never offered you anything.

Lily: Casey?

Casey: Hey, Mrs. Snyder. Hi.

Lily: Lily. How are you? Is everything all right?

Margo: Honey, I can't begin to tell you how bad this looks.

Katie: I know, but Brad didn't do it!

Margo: It looks like Brad did do it! Now, I need something -- I need evidence, I need a witness, I need something to prove that he didnít.

Katie: The only thing I can give you, Margo, is my word. I saw Spencer. I saw her with my own two eyes. And less than 24 hours ago.

Margo: Then, how come Dani couldn't find her? How come the guy who told Brad and you where to find Spencer said that he hadn't seen her in months?

Katie: I don't -- he must have been lying.

Margo: Oh, Katie!

Katie: Look, I know that Brad hasn't always been as upfront with you as he should be. But can we forget that right now? Can you remember you're my sister? 'Cause I'm not Craig. I wouldn't just lie to you.

Margo: Even if telling the truth means your husband goes to prison?

Katie: But he's innocent.

Margo: Katie, listen, I know how stressful it can be in a situation like this. Trust me, I do. And I think that maybe you wanted so much to see Spencer, you just convinced yourself that you had.

Katie: No! No! That is not what happened.

Dani: It's the forensics report on the body found in Brad's locker. I thought you'd want to see it.

Katie: Well, it's not Spencer. Please, tell me it's not Spencer.

Brad: Did they I.D. the body and find out it was someone else's?

Margo: Dani ran a dental. We compared it against the file we have on Spencer to the body belonging in your locker.

Brad: They aren't they can't be.

Margo: They are.

Lily: I know that your dad had a heart attack a couple of months ago. I hope that he's okay.

Casey: It's a job. I'm -- I'm here for -- to find a job.

Lily: Oh. Wow, good for you. That must make your parents very happy. You know, after being expelled from school, that you're out there, taking the bull by the horns.

Casey: Yeah, nothing really makes them happy after being kicked out of college.

Lily: Yeah. Well, I just -- you know, selfishly, I wish that Luke would be a little bit more proactive. Does he know that you're here?

Casey: No. Why would he?

Lily: I just thought maybe you'd talked to him --

Casey: No, I havenít. He must be fine. He has to be fine. Why wouldn't he be fine?

Lily: Are you okay?

Casey: I'm great.

Lily: Oh, good. Well, good luck.

Casey: With what?

Lily: The job search.

Casey: Yeah, the job. Yes, thank you. Yes, job.

Lily: Okay. See ya.

Casey: Okay, that was close.

Alison: What happened?

Casey: I just ran into Luke's mom.

Luke: What? My mom? She's here?

Casey: Yes, across the hall.

Luke: Is she okay?

Casey: She's fine. She's with your grandmother.

Luke: Aw, damn it! I knew I shouldn't have come here.

Alison: No, you need to get checked out.

Luke: No, Alison, what I need is to get out of here. Right now.

Lily: Do you think I should go out there and let Dr. Harry know that we're waiting?

Lucinda: Darling, I thought that's what you were doing out there.

Lily: No, actually, I was talking to Casey Hughes.

Lucinda: What's he doing in here?

Lily: Well, he said he's looking for a job. But he was really just blocking the door over there. Do you think he's got a girl in there?

Lucinda: It wouldn't surprise me.

Lily: Yeah, you'd think everything that's happened with Luke, that Casey would be on his best behavior and staying out of trouble.

Brian: This is a friend of Luke's?

Lucinda: Not a good influence.

Lily: Hi.

Doctor #1: Hi. You're looking well, Lucinda. How are you feeling today?

Brian: Well, other than being completely stubborn about doing everything herself, she's doing great.

Lucinda: Excuse me, Brian. I'm perfectly capable of answering my doctor's questions myself.

Brian: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to speak for you.

Lucinda: Yes, but you did. If you'll just -- pardon me, I would like to discuss my options with Dr. Harry by myself. In private.

Brian: Of course. I'll be outside if you need me.

Lily: Brian, wait! It's not you. She's afraid of overwhelming you, of being overwhelmed. I think that's why she didn't want you to come today.

Brian: Yeah, and why she would so kindly kick me out just now.

Lily: My mother is not at her best when she's afraid. I'm sorry.

Brian: Don't be. I get it. It's just hard for me to think of Lucinda as being so self-conscious.

Lily: She's more vulnerable than you know.

Brian: That's just it. There's still so much about her I don't know. You know, but I plan to make it my life's mission to change that.

Lily: You really love her, don't you?

Brian: Don't tell me you still have doubts.

Lily: Not anymore.

Brian: Great. Now I've finally got you on my side, and Lucinda doesn't want me around.

Lily: Oh, don't say that.

Brian: Look, I'm going to take a walk while I wait. But you'd better get back inside. She shouldn't be alone right now. And just in case she asks, please let her know that I haven't abandoned her.

Lily: I will.

Brian: Okay.

Luke: Are you sure she's gone?

Casey: I don't see her. I'll go out first, okay?

Brian: Luke?

Luke: What are you doing here?

Brian: Lucinda's having her post-op. I was going to go for a walk and I forgot my -- are you all right?

Luke: I'm fine.

Brian: You look sick.

Luke: Brian, just lay off.

Brian: Hey, what the hell is going on here?

Alison: He had a dizzy spell --

Luke: Alison --

Alison: So I made him come here to get checked out.

Joshua: Are we finishing your exam or not? I've got rounds.

Brian: No, he'll be right in.

Luke: Oh, like hell I will.

Brian: Listen, just let me take it from here, okay?

Luke: Brian, this is none of your business.

Brian: Yeah, well it will be, unless you want your mother to find out that you're here.

Luke: Are you blackmailing me?

Alison: He's trying to help you.

Luke: You don't know the half of it.

Alison: Casey? Could you back me up here?

Casey: If he doesn't -- if Luke doesn't want to go with him, we don't have to force him.

Brian: Hey, look Casey? Didn't you just tell Lily that you were here about a job? How do you think she'd feel if she knew the truth?

Luke: Look, Brian, don't threaten my friends.

Brian: Hey, friends wouldn't let you get out of an examination before it's over.

Alison: He's right.

Brian: The doctor's waiting.

Luke: All right. All right, fine. Alison, Casey -- go. I'll be fine.

Alison: Okay.

Casey: I'll call you later, okay?

Luke: Yeah. Don't touch me!


Tom: So you're sure the body found in Brad's locker belonged to Spencer?

Dani: I've got the matching dental records right here.

Brad: That doesn't mean I had anything to do with it.

Dani: Yes, but you still had a key to the studio and to your locker.

Katie: What are you doing? I thought you were supposed to be helping Brad's case?

Margo: She's stating facts, Katie.

Brad: So I forgot to turn in my key after I was let go. That doesn't mean I was coming in there after hours to hide dead bodies.

Tom: Do we even know no other keys exist?

Margo: We donít.

Brad: How stupid do I have to be to put a decomposing body in my locker anyway? Come on!

Tom: The body appeared and disappeared. There is proof that Brad's the one who transported it.

Margo: Well, none of that really matters now, because the reason the charges were dropped in the first place is because we couldn't find Spencer's body. Now that we have it, I have no choice but to place you under arrest for the murder of Spencer McKay.

Katie: No, no, you can't do that.

Margo: Give me one legitimate reason why I shouldn't? Brad, you are under arrest for the murder of Spencer McKay. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Brad: Stop, stop. We have to tell her.

Margo: What? Tell me what?

Katie: Brad --

Brad: We don't have another choice.

Margo: What is he talking about? Is there something you haven't told me? Because if that is the case --

Tom: As your lawyer, I advise you not to say another word.

Brad: But this might clear --

Katie: Tom's right. We should not be talking about any of this in front of Margo. I'm sorry.

Margo: Katie, you promised me you weren't going to lie to me.

Katie: I'm not lying. I'm not. I'm just trying to protect the people I love -- all of them. I just need a little more time. I will tell you about this, as soon as I am ready. But I just need a little time.

Margo: To do what?

Katie: I think I have a way to prove Brad's innocence.

Margo: Is it legal?

Katie: Of course.

Tom: You know, if you want to reinstate the charges against Brad, there are some things that need to be done first. I mean, I know you know this, but a search warrant could take hours. If -- if you want.

Margo: All right. Fine. You've got a half an hour.

Brad: That's all?

Margo: That's more than you had five minutes ago.

Katie: It's enough. Thank you, Margo.

Brad: All right. All right, well we should go.

Margo: Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no. You stay, Katie goes. I'm not risking you making a run for it.

Katie: It's fine. It's fine.

Margo: All right, just so we're all clear here -- sooner or later I'm going to have to make an arrest.

Katie: I understand. But if Brad can't go with me, can I have a minute alone with him?

Margo: Yeah, why not? Why not? Why not?

Brad: Why don't you want to tell Margo about that mystery instant messenger?

Katie: Because I'm not sure yet if he's behind all this.

Brad: Well, of course he is. He's been, like, one step ahead of this nightmare since day one. You're scared, right?

Katie: Yes, he told us not to go to the police with this.

Brad: How much worse could things get?

Katie: I would rather not find out. Please, just let me end this my way.

Brad: Do I have a choice? You have to promise me you're going to be careful. If anything would ever happen to you --

Katie: I'll be fine.

Brad: I love you so much.

Katie: I love you, too.

Joshua: Your blood pressure is a little low. It's hard to know if it's the alcohol consumption or a kidney infection without a blood test. Unfortunately, I'm not authorized --

Brian: I'll make sure he gets one.

Luke: Aw, thanks, Grandpa.

Brian: We really appreciate all that you've done.

Luke: You happy?

Brian: Do you have a death wish or something?

Luke: What I need you to do right now is take a look outside, make sure the coast is clear, and I can get out of here.

Brian: Okay. And where do you think you're going?

Luke: Why do you even care? You've done your good deed for the day. You can check me off your to-do list, Brian. Oh, come on, man.

Brian: Luke, you are drunk. What is the matter with you?

Luke: Well, at the moment -- you.

Brian: Oh, I am not going to let you walk out of here like this.

Luke: Brian -- why do you care? Are you trying to impress my grandmother? Or maybe -- you're angling for another little make-out session?

Brian: You are way out of line, Luke.

Luke: I'm out -- I'm out of line? I'm not the one who tried to make out with his grandson. Oh, oh, oh, I'm so sorry. Are we still pretending that you didn't try to kiss me?

Brian: You are seeing things because of your drinking that just aren't there.

Luke: That is so funny. Because that's exactly what Noah said. The thing is though, Brian -- I was drunk, not unconscious.

Brian: Okay, we're not going to discuss this here. Your mother and grandmother are just about step out of that room. Here -- here's some cab fare to get you to the Lakeview.

Luke: Why would I want to go the Lakeview?

Brian: To sleep it off. I still have a room at the Lakeview.

Luke: How convenient.

Brian: Yeah, and if you're still light-headed when you wake up, I'm going to insist on bringing you back here for a full examination.

Luke: I am not going to go to your room in the Lakeview.

Brian: Okay, where else are you going to go where you won't tip off someone that you've been drinking again? It's your choice.

Casey: I feel really bad leaving that guy with Luke.

Alison: Brian seems like he really cares about Luke.

Casey: But Luke acts like he basically hates the guy.

Alison: Well, I'm personally relieved that someone in Luke's family is finally clued in to how much trouble he's in. You know, if he's mad at us for trying to help him, then too bad. You know, at least he's alive.

Casey: When did you become so self-righteous?

Alison: I am so not self-righteous!

Casey: You're annoyingly right all of the time, and it's starting to really bug me.

Alison: Then maybe I should leave.

Casey: No, sorry. Sorry. It's just -- I've been wrong a lot these days. And it's just -- it's ticking me off.

Alison: I could be wrong about Luke. And if forcing him to get help pushes him over the edge, I mean, he'll just be one more guilt trip I get to take on.

Casey: No, no, no. Don't be too hard on yourself. He was your friend, you just tried to help him. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnít.

Alison: Like when I forced you to tell your parents about getting expelled?

Casey: I thought that went pretty well, considering they were gearing up to drop their own bomb.

Alison: What happened?

Casey: Basically, if I don't find a job in two weeks, they're kicking me out.

Alison: Oh, God. Casey, I should've just kept my mouth shut!

Casey: No, it's not your fault I keep ruining my life.

Alison: Like I keep ruining my own?

Casey: What do you mean? Oh, wow.

Alison: Yep. I'm officially divorced -- again. I think this makes me the champion in "Whose life is more pathetic" sweepstakes.

Casey: You definitely win this round.

Tom: Hi, Margo's gone. Perhaps you'd like to tell me what Katie didn't want to say in front of her.

Brad: The only thing that I can tell you is that I haven't done anything. Someone is doing it to me.

Tom: So you think you're being set up?

Brad: No, I don't think, Tom. I know.

Tom: Any idea who's behind it?

Brad: Well, at first we thought it was Spencer -- you know, because -- just trying to get back at me for rejecting her. But you know, there's no way she could have pulled some of these stunts off alone. So if she is behind it, someone's helping her. And I just wish to hell I knew who that help was.

Katie: Okay, as his screen name? Screen name, screen name? Ah yes, there it is. Okay. "I don't have to tell you what's happened to Brad and Henry. I have no doubt now you're behind all of it. But I don't know why you're doing this to us. Maybe putting that poor dead woman's body in Brad's locker was your way of punishing us for trying to prove Spencer was really alive. If that's the case, it worked. We're being punished. Brad could go to prison for murder and I could lose him forever. So I get it. I know your threats were real. But I'm begging you to stop and I'll do anything to make you stop -- anything at all. Just tell me what you want from me and I will do it."

Luke: Brian? Brian, are you here?

Lucinda: I snapped at you today.

Brian: You did? I didn't notice.

Lucinda: Well, it's nice of you to take it that way. But it's going to get worse before it gets better. So if -- if you want out --

Brian: I donít.

Lucinda: I wouldn't blame you if you did.

Brian: I'm the one who said I would be with you every step of the way. Those weren't just words. I'm not going to leave you. Or do you want me to? Is that the real reason you pushed me away today?

Lucinda: You know, I just sensed that you were a little distracted.

Brian: Stop thinking for me, Lucinda. I'm here because I want to be. And I can handle it. All of it. You look a little tired.

Lucinda: I am tired.

Brian: I'm going to go back to the hotel to pick up a few things I left there. Why don't you rest while I'm gone?

Lucinda: I'll do it. I will.

Brian: Okay.

Lucinda: All right.

Lily: Here's your tea.

Lucinda: I knew it was too good to be true.

Lily: What?

Lucinda: Marriage. Him. Everything.

Luke: Carolyn Wheatley? Who the hell is that?

Alison: I think there's something toxically wrong with me, because every relationship I've had, it just ends in a bloodbath.

Casey: Hey, maybe -- maybe you're just with the wrong guy.

Alison: You can't keep doing that.

Casey: What?

Alison: Touching. Flirting with me. My personal life is an Armageddon and yours is a disaster zone.

Casey: Thank you for reminding me.

Alison: Seriously, Casey. The last thing either of us needs is each other.

Dani: It's kind of sad, isn't it?

Tom: Excuse me?

Dani: You know, the way he's holding onto the whole seeing Spencer thing.

Tom: Sounded pretty convincing to me.

Dani: Well, I mean, the dental records, they prove that Spencer --

Tom: You know, how hard did you look for Spencer when you were in Chicago?

Dani: Excuse me?

Tom: Katie and Brad seemed pretty adamant about seeing her.

Dani: Yeah, well, you would be adamant, too, if it meant staying out of prison for murder.

Tom: Well, that didn't answer my question.

Dani: I looked damned hard, but came up with nothing, just like every other lead that Katie and Brad have given me.

Tom: Just checking. Thanks.

Dani: Your client's guilty. Might as well face that now and prepare yourself for the worst.

Katie: Come on. The least you could do is answer me.

[Computer beeps]

Katie: No, I don't want to download the newest version of ustube. Come on.

Assistant: Katie, do you know your car's waiting outside for you?

Katie: I didn't order a car.

Assistant: The driver says he's not leaving without you.

Katie: All right, fine. I'll deal with it. This is the last thing that I need.

Casey: If you thought I was making a move on you, I wasn't, I swear. I wouldn't do that, I know how you feel about that.

Alison: Well, now I'm the jerk.

Casey: No, no, you're not.

Alison: But you were just trying to lighten the mood, and I totally just flipped out.

Casey: Okay, maybe you overreacted a little.

Alison: A little?

Casey: I'm just trying to be nice.

Alison: I just -- I really don't want anything to mess up our friendship.

Casey: Yes, I don't want to mess that up either. And I'm definitely going to need your help finding some gainful employment.

Alison: Right. Like I've done such a bang-up job so far.

Casey: You're really good with moral support. And I'm definitely going to need this after I tank on some of these job interviews. Come on, still friends?

Alison: Still friends.

Lucinda: Just try to rethink from his point of view. You know, I want to be a better person after all this has happened to me. I don't want anyone around me who's around me for pity or duty.

Lily: Mother, he loves you. I know you don't trust that.

Lucinda: No.

Lily: I didn't trust it at first, either. But I've seen the way he looks at you. I've watched him take care of you. He loves you, mother. He wants to be here. If I ever doubted that, I don't doubt it now.

Lucinda: You are so sweet.

Lily: Because I love you.

Lucinda: I want this to work. I want it more than I ever realized.

Luke: It's none of your business, Luke. What the hell? "Brian, I received your alimony check. Thank you. Please send it to my accountant next month. Carolyn." Alimony? That means he was already married.

[Door opens]

Brian: Oh, hey.

Luke: Hi.

Brian: I didn't mean to wake you. I didn't knock in case you were still sleeping.

Luke: Oh, no. I only meant to lie down for a little bit.

Brian: How you feeling? Any better?

Luke: Yeah, yeah. Thank you.

Brian: Good. Listen, you don't have to leave.

Luke: Yes, I do.

Brian: Are you sure you don't want me to take you back to the hospital for a follow up, just to be safe?

Luke: No. No, I'm fine. But thank you.

Brad: Did Katie call?

Margo: No. And since she hasn't been able to pull a last minute reprieve out of her hat, I've gone ahead and ordered a search warrant for your dressing room at WOAK and for your home.

Brad: She's not going to be happy about that.

Margo: You know what makes me unhappy? You. You promised my sister, you made a vow that you would love and protect her. And ever since you've been married, you've dragged her through one mess after the other. First there's was that young daughter of yours that you never even knew you made, she shows up. Then there's that whole fiasco with Leo Morrissey. And now this.

Brad: Margo, I know that I've made some mistakes. But this time, I didn't do anything wrong.

Margo: Brad, this time, I'm going to let the jury decide.

Katie: There must be some mistake. I didn't order --

Craig: It's good to see you, Katie. How's my baby sister doing?

Katie: Craig.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Lisa: I can make sure you and Jack have the ballroom for say $20,000.

Jack: 20 grand? Have you completely lost your mind?

Katie: You want me to lie to get you out of an attempted murder charge?

Craig: In a nutshell.

Spencer: Drop the gun, Detective, or your bright, young protťgťís going to end up in the morgue, just like I did.
