Casey: Hey, hey.
Alison: Hey, what are you doing here?
Casey: Nothing. You want to go get some coffee?
Alison: I'm just coming on.
Casey: Come on, 15 minutes. Please?
Alison: I canít. Some kid almost ODíd. and they think he might be suicidal. I guess he's sleeping it off, but they want someone to stay in the room with him.
Casey: Wow, that was way too much information. I'll see you later, okay?
Alison: Oh, wait. You didn't tell me what you're doing here.
Casey: Yeah, I know.
Alison: Is everything okay?
Casey: You mean, like, my health and --
Alison: That is why some people come to the hospital.
Casey: Really? I thought it was for the food.
Alison: Casey, what's going on?
Casey: I just -- I had some business to take care of.
Casey: Yes, that's right. Me.
Alison: Isn't that usually connected to having a job?
Casey: Yeah. Yes, at least -- you know -- with getting one.
Casey: Yeah, my grandfather runs the place. So I figured he's the only person that can't say no about me being an ex-con.
Alison: Well, what did he say?
Casey: I haven't asked him yet.
Alison: What are you waiting for?
Casey: The nerve.
Alison: Oh, come on, he's your grandfather.
Casey: I know, but I hate asking my family for favors.
Alison: Yeah, I hear that.
Casey: But my dad's pretty serious about kicking me out of the house if I don't get a job. So here I am.
Alison: You should look on the bright side.
Casey: Yeah? Ten bucks if you can find one.
Jack: Hey, I didn't know you were coming over.
Carly: Well, I got your message. And it seemed like something important.
Jack: Yeah, yeah. I was going to come over the house.
Carly: I was out anyway, bringing Sage to a friend. So here I am.
Jack: Good, good. You want something to drink? Coffee? Something cold?
Carly: No, no thanks. I think I know what this is about.
Jack: You do?
Carly: You don't want me there.
Carly: It's okay. I completely understand.
Jack: Carly, what are you talking about?
Carly: Youíre wedding. I understand why Janet wouldn't want me there.
Jack: She didn't say that. Are you kidding me? The woman has no idea how to carry a grudge.
Carly: Unlike me?
Jack: No, Carly, I didn't say that either.
Carly: You didn't have to. So then, what is it about then, Jack? What are you so afraid to say?
Jack: I am not afraid to --
Carly: You seem kind of afraid.
Jack: I want to take out a second mortgage on the house.
Carly: Our house has probably lost, like, half its value in this market.
Jack: No, I don't know about that. I think it's a good time to get out some of our equity.
Carly: For your wedding?
Jack: For whatever.
Carly: Come on, Jack. You and I both know that you cannot afford this extravaganza that Janet is planning.
Jack: Okay, I know you don't approve of the wedding. You're entitled. All you need to worry about is whether I'll meet my obligations to the kids.
Carly: That's exactly what I'm worried about!
Jack: And I will.
Carly: All right. Then why are you even talking to me about this? It seems quite clear that you've made up your mind.
Jack: I need you to co-sign the mortgage papers.
Carly: You gotta be kidding.
Jack: I'm not. Will you do it?
Liberty: Hello, anybody home?
Janet: The invitations came!
Liberty: Already, huh?
Janet: Yep. I paid extra to have them rush delivered, and it was worth every penny. They are beautiful!
Liberty: So Liberty, how was school? It was great, actually. Did you get your math test back? Yeah, but I can't talk to you, because I have some stupid invitations!
Janet: All right, I get it. I know you're -- I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Did you get your test back?
Janet: And what'd you get?
Janet: Good for you, Honey! That's great!
Liberty: Yeah, I could've done better. But we have this, like, trig unit next. It's really hard.
Janet: Oh, that's okay. You'll do well.
Liberty: Maybe you could help me?
Janet: Honey, the only thing I understand about math is "20% off."
Liberty: Well I think my teacher might be able to give me some, like, after school help. So I'm going to e-mail him now.
Janet: Liberty, Liberty, Liberty!
Liberty: Just kidding. Show me. Beautiful. So beautiful.
Janet: I know! I know! Aren't they great?
Janet: My family is going to be so impressed! I can't wait to see the look on their faces when I walk down the aisle in that dress.
Liberty: You know, some of them might actually be impressed by Uncle Jack, maybe.
Janet: Yes, I know, Uncle Jack too. Yes, yes, yes, yes. Oh, my God, this is working out perfectly. Oh, Janet the screw-up makes good!
Liberty: What happened to, like, your new dream, "The past is the past," you're not going to care what other people think?
Janet: Okay, I lied.
Liberty: All right.
Janet: I can't believe this is really happening!
Liberty: Well, it is. Yay!
Janet: Yay! Hey, you know what? I made some strawberry shortcake. So why don't you cut yourself a slice, and I will be back later.
Liberty: Okay. Where are you going?
Janet: I'm going to go show Jack the invitations!
Liberty: Yay -- love you!
Janet: Bye, love you.
Alison: There is always a bright side to everything, Casey. I mean, take me, for example. I was a mess. A drug addict. And I know I don't have to remind you about my fabulous career in porn.
Casey: At least you had a job.
Alison: Okay, shut up. The point is, if I was able to pull myself out of that and wind up here, then you have nothing to worry about.
Casey: That -- that's your idea of the bright side?
Alison: That's right. No matter how far down you go, you can always climb back up. So give me my $10, please.
Casey: That's so lame. No!
Alison: Too bad. Pay up.
Casey: As soon as I get my first paycheck, okay?
Bob: Ah, they told me you were here. What a nice surprise.
Casey: Hey, Granddad.
Bob: To what do I owe this pleasure?
Carly: You're asking me to co-sign for a second mortgage?
Jack: That's the only way I can get it.
Carly: I cannot tell you what a bad idea I think this is.
Jack: But you're going to try.
Carly: No, I'm not. Surprisingly. I'm going to take Holdenís advice.
Jack: Which is?
Carly: Which is to let you live your life and not interfere.
Carly: Seriously. If you want to risk your children's home just to keep Janet happy, then that's just fine with me. I won't say a word.
Jack: This is your idea of not interfering?
Carly: I'm just saying, as long as the children aren't forced out of their house.
Jack: They won't be.
Carly: And as we can still afford to send them to college.
Jack: We will be.
Carly: Without touching the money that Rosanna heft for Parker.
Jack: I'm not going anywhere near it.
Carly: Well fine, then. Look, if you want to risk everything on a party, then that's fine. Really.
Jack: I'm so glad you're taking Holdenís advice to heart.
Carly: I just want to make sure you realize what's at stake here, Jack.
Jack: I told you. I will meet every obligation I have.
Carly: You better. Because if you don't, I'm going to make you regret this the rest of your life. I cannot believe that you are literally going to mortgage the future for an event that lasts one day.
Jack: I'm going to pay off the loan, Carly.
Carly: I mean, you have done some really stupid things in your life, it's true. But this --
Jack: Yeah, after all, I married you a couple of times, didn't I?
[Janet comes to the door and hears voices and listens]
Carly: That is not nice. Just think about what I'm saying. This is incredibly selfish, Jack! Think of the kids, what it means for them.
Jack: Are you going to sign the damn papers or not?
Carly: I said I would, and I will. Just don't expect to come and help you when this all comes crashing down on your head.
Jack: Believe me Carly, the last person I'd ask for help would be you.
Bob: So what are you doing here? You're not sick, I hope.
Casey: No, no, I'm fine. Actually, I came to see you.
Casey: Yes. I don't know if you heard, but I kind of ran into a little speed bump at school --
Bob: I heard you were expelled.
Casey: Yes, that's another way of putting it. But I've been kind of trying -- trying to strategize my future and --
Casey: Yeah, you know, plan things out, move forward. That kind of thing.
Bob: What have you decided?
Casey: The thing is, with my record and my history, a lot of the places that I would have been down with working at, are kind of closed off at the moment.
Bob: Whoa, I would think so.
Casey: Okay, especially in areas of gainful employment. Which is why I have that problem, as far as, you know, strategy is concerned. That's why I came to see you and talk to you.
Bob: Now listen, I don't have all day, so I'm going to move this along. I know that your dad told you to get a job or move out.
Casey: You do know that?
Bob: Yeah. I assume that's why you're here?
Casey: It is.
Bob: Okay, I have a question for you. Why would you want to work at a hospital?
Casey: Because my awesome Granddad runs it?
Bob: Fair enough, fair enough. But that's not exactly a sign of deep commitment.
Casey: No, I will work hard. I promise, I won't let you down.
Bob: I know you wonít. So go ahead.
Casey: With what?
Bob: Well, if you want me to give you a job, you got to ask me.
Casey: Will you say yes?
Bob: There's only one way to find out.
Casey: Right. Okay. Will you give me a job?
Bob: I think we could find something for you to do around here.
Bob: Easy, easy, easy, lad. Easy. We were looking for a thoracic surgeon, but that job's been filled. But we're in the market for an orderly. Now, you have any experience emptying bedpans?
Bob: No, huh? Well, since you have a lot of pull around here, maybe we can give you a break. Not that you deserve it -- and bump you up a bit. How about custodial assistant? How does that sound?
Casey: No, no. But you got to start somewhere, right?
Bob: Yes, you do.
Casey: So when do I start?
Bob: Right away. The maintenance department is in the basement. You go down there and tell them I sent you. And I'm sure that they could find a nice pair of overalls for you.
Casey: I made your day, didn't I?
Bob: I don't have this much fun usually around here, I tell ya. Hey. I think you're okay.
Liberty: Hey, what happened? Mom, did Jack not like the invitations or something?
Janet: I didn't show them to him.
Liberty: Why not?
Janet: You know, I was thinking on the way over there. It's just -- this whole thing is getting way out of hand.
Liberty: What whole thing, Mom?
Janet: The wedding. It's ridiculous. It's just -- I'm over it.
Liberty: What are you talking about?
Janet: Look -- it's too self-indulgent. It's not the kind of example we should be setting for you kids, anyway.
Liberty: Mom, since when have you ever worried about that? Once before --
Janet: Hey, Liberty.
Liberty: Sorry, okay. All right. How many times do I have to remind you that you've been dreaming of this your whole life?
Janet: Honey, maybe my dreams are a little over the top.
Liberty: You're Janet Ciccone. "Over the top" is your middle name!
Janet: I have to draw the line somewhere.
Liberty: Why? Why with this? Mom, what about -- what about showing your family that you made it?
Janet: Yeah, well, it's not like I've found a cure for cancer or anything. You know?
Liberty: Yeah, no, you didnít. You just -- you just raised a daughter all by yourself without help from any of them and she's amazing!
Janet: Yes, she is. She is amazing. But it's not worth rubbing their noses in the cost of this wedding. You know?
Liberty: But I thought Jack said not even to worry about the money.
Janet: I know, he did. And he's a wonderful guy. And I love him for that. But Liberty, you gotta remember, he's got three kids that he has to send to college on a cop's salary. It wouldn't be fair to him to have this big wedding.
Liberty: No, no. It's not fair for you not to have one.
Janet: Liberty, I can live with it.
Liberty: You shouldn't have to, Mom. Come on, let life be unfair for someone else, just for once.
Janet: I don't need a big wedding to make me happy. I am going to have a fabulous husband. And I have the most wonderful, incredible daughter in the whole world. And that's all I need. Okay?
Janet: Hey. Don't go getting any stupid ideas.
Liberty: Like what?
Janet: Like going to see Jack behind my back.
Liberty: Why would you ever say that?
Janet: Because you've done it before.
Liberty: Fine, point taken.
Janet: Swear on your credit cards.
Liberty: I swear on my credit card that I will not talk to Jack about the wedding.
Janet: Thank you.
Liberty: I think that it sucks, though.
Janet: Well, I donít. I have made my decision and I'm happy about it.
Jack: I know credit is tight, but you were just trying to sell me a second mortgage last month. Well, I still have a job. I make all my payments. And you told me yourself, there's a lot of equity in the house. Yes, I read the papers, I know we're in the middle of a recession. So -- so there's no chance? No, I understand. It's not your fault. Thanks anyway.
Liberty: Hey, what's up?
Parker: Trig test tomorrow.
Liberty: You don't have Trig until next year.
Parker: Advanced placement. You may have heard of it?
Liberty: Sorry, geek boy. I forgot how brilliant you are.
Parker: So is that why you're here? Justo insult me?
Liberty: No, I had to get out of the house. I couldn't watch my mom give up on the biggest dream of her life.
Parker: That happens a lot around here.
Liberty: She's canceling the wedding.
Parker: They're not getting married?
Liberty: No, don't get your hopes up. We're still going to be related. She's not calling off the marriage, just the party afterwards.
Parker: I don't understand. She was so into it.
Liberty: I know. She just doesn't think your dad should have to pay for it.
Parker: Well he never said anything like that to me.
Liberty: I don't think he said anything to her either. She just kind of came up with it on her own. I just thought, for once in her life, she was going to get something she wanted, you know, for herself. That never happens. Thanks to me.
Parker: Okay, how is this your fault?
Liberty: I'm kind of like a big, black cloud that just hangs over her entire life.
Parker: Well, she doesn't think that.
Liberty: I just wish I could do this for her, you know?
Parker: Do what?
Liberty: Pay for the wedding. But it's $20,000. And unfortunately, I don't really know any millionaires I could hit up for that kind of cash.
Parker: Actually, you do.
Alison: You missed a spot.
Alison: I'm sorry I couldn't resist. I think it's great that you have a job.
Casey: Yeah, quite a career move.
Alison: Well, you got to start somewhere.
Casey: You know, but I don't think the bright side's really working out for me.
Alison: It will.
Casey: Yeah, you're right. And don't worry, I'll give you your ten bucks.
Alison: Oh, I am not worried. I'll see you later.
Casey: Yep. Actually, you'll see both of us later. Me and my new best friend here.
Alison: Hey, Fay. Hope I'm not too late. Is he giving you any problems?
Fay: No, he's been asleep since I got here.
Alison: Well that's good, right?
Fay: As long as nothing beeps.
Alison: Okay. Well, I'll check his vitals. And thanks, I'll see you later, Fay
Mark: That's it, Honey. Game's over. It's showtime!
Alison: No --
Mark: Do it!
Casey: What's wrong?
Alison: It's Mark Vero.
Alison: The O.D. patient.
Alison: I can't sit in there with him, Casey! I just can't!
Liberty: Okay, yeah, unless somebody at school won the lottery, I don't think I know any millionaires.
Parker: Yes, you do.
Liberty: Okay, who?
Liberty: That was a joke. Funny, Parker.
Parker: No, I'm not joking. See, my aunt left me a bundle. And it's in a trust fund. And I mean, we all like it's not there. But it has a lot of money in it.
Liberty: Why would you never tell me this?
Parker: It's just -- it's not something that we really talk about.
Liberty: I don't -- I don't believe it. No.
Parker: It's the truth.
Liberty: But its money that you can just spend however you want?
Parker: Well, it's my money. My mom's the trustee, but I know where the checks are.
Liberty: That is so cool. That is so cool. But I -- I mean, I could never pay you back, though.
Parker: Don't worry about it.
Liberty: You're serious? You would do this for me? And for my mom?
Parker: And for my dad. I mean, it's his wedding, too. And he does want your mom to have whatever she wants.
Liberty: This is for real?
Parker: This is for real. Although I do have one condition.
Parker: I shall never, ever, ever, ever be referred to as "Geek boy" again.
Liberty: That's it? That's your one condition?
Parker: That is it.
Liberty: Parker, you are the best!
Parker: Don't you forget that.
Janet: I thought you had the late shift.
Jack: Yeah, I'm on my way. I want to talk to you.
Janet: Good, 'cause I'm glad you're here. I wanted to talk to you, too.
Jack: Okay. You go first.
Janet: You go first.
Jack: Okay. You know I wanted to give you the wedding of your dreams.
Janet: I know.
Jack: Honey, I canít. I just can't afford it right now. I'm sorry.
Janet: Oh, no, no, no. No, it's okay. Don't be sorry. I was thinking about the same thing. That's what I wanted to talk to you about. You know, I mean it would just -- it'd be crazy. They're called dreams, they're not real. But what is real is our marriage. And I don't care what kind of a wedding it starts with.
Jack: What changed your mind?
Jack: Did you talk to Carly?
Janet: Oh, why would I do that?
Jack: Well, I don't know. It just seem kind of sudden, this change.
Janet: You know what? It's just not something we need in our lives at this point, you know? And I think it would be ridiculously crazy for us to spend that kind of money on one day.
Jack: Yes, Darling.
Janet: One day.
Jack: People do ridiculously crazy things when they're in love. I wanted this for you.
Janet: I know. And I love you for that. But I swear, this really is one of those times when it is the thought that counts.
Jack: You're sure about that?
Janet: Yes, I'm sure. I'd be very happy with a small wedding, just our close family and friends. Then, I want you to take me away to some beautiful tropical island for a few days, where nobody knows us. That's all I want.
Jack: You're amazing, you know that?
Janet: Get used to it, 'cause I'm going to be around for a long time.
Jack: Okay, all right. I'll see you later.
Jack: Thank you.
Janet: Love you.
Jack: I love you.
Parker: You're here.
Carly: I am here. What are you guys up to?
Parker: Nothing. Liberty was going to help me with my trig.
Carly: She was going to help you with your trig?
Liberty: No. Oh, no. Actually, no. He meant he was going to help me with my homework.
Parker: Right. But you said you wanted a snack first.
Liberty: No, I'm not really --
Parker: You said you were hungry, remember?
Liberty: Right, no -- yeah, I am pretty hungry.
Parker: I told her she had to taste my mom's nachos.
Liberty: Yeah. He said that they're like, the best.
Carly: They are. They're good. You know, I'm sorry I don't have any cheese. I'd be happy to go get you some, okay? I have to go out anyway. I'll be right back.
Parker: No, no, no. No, wait. You don't have to do that.
Carly: No big deal at all, really.
Liberty: Thank you.
Carly: Okay. I'll be right back.
Liberty: You're good.
Parker: So are you. All right. Who am I making this out to?
Liberty: The Lakeview Hotel.
Parker: And it's for $20,000, right?
Liberty: Yeah. Parker -- are you sure you want to do this?
Parker: Are you sure that your mom wants to have the wedding?
Liberty: Yeah, I'm sure.
Parker: It's done.
Casey: How can they make you take care of that jerk after what he did to you? Can't he get somebody else?
Alison: I should, right?
Alison: Hey, Fay? Could you do me a favor? Could you please keep an eye on the patient in room 51until I get back?
Fay: Sorry, I got to get to my other job.
Alison: I just need to ask Brenda for a different assignment.
Fay: She's not really in that good of a mood.
Alison: Oh. Okay.
Alison: Well, now what do I do? Brenda is not my biggest fan.
Casey: You can't give her a reason to think you can't do your job.
Alison: I don't know if I can.
Casey: Hey, Mark is just a patient. That's all, right? If he causes any trouble, call security.
Alison: You're right.
Casey: Yeah, I know. I'm really good at giving other people good advice.
Casey: Hey, Ali?
Casey: Way to look on the bright side.
Alison: Go and talk to your mop. Oh, my God!
Carly: Hey, kids, I'm back! Parker? Hey, Parker? Liberty? Are you up there? That's weird. Where'd they go? $20,000 to the Lakeview Hotel. What the hell? Hello. Hi, this is Carly Tenney calling. I know that my husband -- my ex-husband, Jack Snyder, he was interested in a second mortgage. He spoke with you today -- it wasn't accepted? No, no. That's quite all right, I completely understand. Thank you. Jack, now you have gone too far.
Alison: Have you seen any patients wandering the halls?
Nurse: I just came on. You want me to call security?
Alison: No, no, it's okay.
Nurse: Maybe he went for a walk and got lost. They do that sometimes.
Alison: Right, thanks. I'm sure I'll find him. Damn it, Mark! Where are you?
Liberty: Hey Parker, Parker, can I see it? Come on, come on. Show me.
Liberty: $20,000. Hey, you signed your mom's name.
Liberty: I thought you said this was your money.
Parker: It is. But she's the trustee until I'm 21.
Liberty: Won't the bank notice the difference?
Parker: The school never did when I signed her name.
Liberty: I don't know about this.
Parker: Look, your mom wants to have the wedding, right?
Parker: Then let's go pay for it. Hey, I'd like to leave this for Mrs. Grimaldi.
Clerk: She's in her office.
Parker: We're just dropping it off.
Clerk: I'll see that she gets it.
Parker: Thank you.
Carly: Are you out of your mind?
Jack: Not that I'm aware of.
Carly: Please tell me you didn't do it. Please tell me that you did not put that kind of pressure on your own son.
Jack: You want to tell me what the hell you're talking about?
Carly: I'm talking about Parker forging my name on a check to pay for your wedding!
Jack: What? I didn't do that! What?
Carly: I did not sign this!
Jack: Who did?
Carly: I think we both know who did!
Jack: Parker? You think Parker forged your name?
Carly: You put him up to it, didn't you?
Jack: The hell I did!
Carly: I know they rejected you for that second mortgage, Jack. And I know how much you hate to say no to your beloved.
Jack: What are you talking about? I didn't see Parker all day, Carly.
Carly: Then she must have done it herself!
Jack: Janet? You think she asked Parker for the money?
Carly: No, I think she sent her little daughter to ask him. And it's not hard to imagine how she got him to say yes!
Jack: You're out of your tree, Lady.
Carly: Maybe. But are you sure I'm wrong?
Jack: I told Janet I couldn't afford the wedding, and she was fine with it.
Carly: You believe that?
Jack: She doesn't lie to me.
Carly: Well all it would take was her to cry on Liberty's shoulder long enough to give Liberty the idea herself.
Jack: She wouldn't do that, Carly.
Carly: Just a little bit ago, Liberty was with Parker, they concocted some plan to get me out of the house. When I got back, they were gone, and I found this.
Jack: But Janet didn't have anything to do with that.
Carly: Well, what else would make Parker write a $20,000 check to the Lakeview?
Jack: I don't know. Let's go find out.
Janet: Hi, Lisa. It's Janet Ciccone. I was just calling to thank you so much for the wonderful offer for Jack and me to have our wedding reception at the Lakeview. But unfort -- what check? From who? Carly? Are you kidding me? Yes, it's very generous of her. I wasn't expecting it either.
Casey: All right. Break time. I'm sorry.
Casey: Vero! What are you doing up here?
Mark: You stay away from me!
Casey: Okay, just get your butt back in your room, man.
Mark: I canít.
Casey: Why -- why?
Mark: Because they won't let me.
Casey: Dude, there's nobody there.
Mark: You can't see them, but I can.
Casey: Are you -- are you kidding me? Are we talking, like, green aliens here? Pink elephants?
Mark: No, no! Them, them! Right there!
Casey: All right, okay. If you want to freak out, that's fine. Just come with me and we'll --
Mark: You stay away from me or I'll jump!
Casey: Are you -- seriously?
Mark: You just stay away!
Casey: Listen, I'm warning you, man. I'm not going to ruin my break on you. Come on, just --
Mark: Just stay away from me!
Casey: Are you serious? If you want to jump, jump.
Alison: Mark? Where are you? Mark?
Alison: Oh, my God! Casey, we have to get him away from there.
Casey: I'm trying. He has make-believe friends up here telling him to jump.
Alison: Is that what he said?
Alison: Casey, we can't let him do this.
Casey: Why not?
Mark: Hey. Hey, I know you.
Casey: Oh, you're not too wasted to remember what you did to her?
Mark: She's the porn queen.
Mark: You were in my room that night. I remember. We made a big mistake.
Alison: You think so?
Mark: We shouldn't have let you go without getting the good stuff.
Casey: See what I mean? We should just let him jump.
Alison: No, don't say that. He might do it.
Casey: What does it matter? Is it going to ruin your grade?
Casey: Do you hear that?
Casey: Huh? If you take a dive, Alison's GPA goes down. You listening to me, man?
Mark: I have to do what they say. If I don't -- if I don't jump, they'll hurt me. They'll kill me if I don't jump!
Casey: Okay. Okay, before you go over, can I just ask you something? These people who are talking to you -- who are they?
Mark: I don't know.
Casey: Do you know them?
Mark: No, no, I'm not --
Casey: So then why would you do what they tell you?
Mark: Look at them!
Casey: I can't see them, remember?
Mark: He's right behind you, right there?
Casey: Who? What?
Mark: Right there, right behind you.
Casey: I don't see anything!
Mark: They're from that -- that movie!
Casey: What movie? What movie?
Mark: The one with the aliens. Look, look, he's right there. Right behind you!
Casey: Yes, right there. Right there.
Mark: No, no, no! He's behind you!
Casey: Behind me? Where?
Mark: Right there! Get off of me! Get off of me! Let me go! Let me go! They'll kill me if you don't let me go!
Casey: Calm down.
Janet: Well, I got the check back from Lisa.
Carly: Wow. He is good.
Janet: Was it Parker?
Carly: The question is, who put him up to it?
Janet: Well, did you ask him?
Jack: He's not answering his cell.
Carly: Maybe you want to talk to your daughter?
Janet: Why, you think she had something to do with this?
Carly: Well, I just -- I'd be surprised if Parker agreed to pay for your wedding without some kind of incentives.
Janet: She would never do anything like that!
Jack: Can you call her for us?
Janet: No need.
Liberty: Oh, this can't be good.
Jack: Hey, did you write this?
Parker: Yeah, so? It's my money.
Carly: It's my signature.
Parker: Yeah, because you don't trust me with it.
Carly: I wonder why!
Parker: It's a wedding gift, okay?
Carly: Parker! It's $20,000!
Parker: Yeah, well, what's the difference? There's more of it. I just wanted you guys to have a nice wedding.
Carly: And whose idea was that?
Carly: You just decided all on your own to finance this circus?
Parker: I decided that I was going to help pay for a celebration. Which the rest of us want, even if you don't!
Alison: Well, let's hope he stays asleep for the rest of my shift.
Casey: You're going to stay with him?
Alison: I have to now.
Casey: I still say we should have let him jump.
Alison: Believe me, I was tempted. Come on, let's talk outside. I don't want to wake him up.
Bob: Well, I was wondering how you were doing. Where's your mop?
Casey: It's in the stairwell.
Bob: It's supposed to be in your hands.
Alison: Casey just helped me get a suicidal patient down from the roof.
Casey: Yeah. I wish we didnít. But you know, he's a real jerk.
Bob: You know him?
Casey: From school. He kidnapped Alison, almost raped her.
Bob: Are you all right?
Alison: I'm fine.
Bob: Well listen, I want you to chart that for the attending.
Alison I will.
Bob: And then I want to hear all the details, so find somebody to cover for you.
Alison: But it's -- it's my shift.
Bob: Just say that I authorized it. Take a break, and then meet me in my office.
Casey: I think we're going to get a raise.
Bob: Is it okay if we wait until you finish your first day here before I put you on the board of directors?
Casey: You're a tough boss, Granddude.
Bob: Believe it. My office, 15 minutes.
Jack: It was really thoughtful of you to want to help out with this wedding. But that money is supposed to be for when you get older. That's how Rosanna wanted it. And it was really, really wrong of you to forge your mother's signature.
Parker: I know.
Carly: Parker, you should've asked me.
Parker: Oh, yeah, like you would have done anything to help make this wedding happen.
Jack: That is not the point. And forgery is a crime.
Parker: You going to arrest me for trying to spend my own money?
Liberty: Can I say something?
Liberty: This is because of me, too. Parker said he had this money, and I let him forge the check.
Parker: I did it because I wanted to.
Liberty: No, you did it because of me. And I really appreciate that, but I shouldn't have let you. So Uncle Jack, if you're going to, like, bust him you should probably bust me, too.
Jack: I appreciate that, Liberty. But I'm not busting anyone.
Janet: That still doesn't make it right. I love the fact that you wanted to do this for me, but it's not your money or mine.
Liberty: I know that now.
Jack: Okay, so we can all agree that this was the wrong thing to do for the right reasons. We can tear up the check, learn our lessons, and move on.
Carly: Move on? I couldn't agree more.
Alison: I can't believe we pulled that off! I was petrified that he was going to jump.
Casey: I did my best to convince him.
Alison: You were smart, Casey. I mean, most people would have been all sympathetic and tried to talk him down. I mean, I would've. But you got him to play deeper into his fantasy so that he couldn't even see us coming.
Casey: Well for an assistant janitor, I guess I did pretty good, didn't I? Huh?
Alison: You know, that would've been it for me with Brenda. You saved my butt.
Casey: Well, I couldn't have let anything happen to that cute little butt of yours.
Alison: Okay, let's not take this into the gutter.
Casey: Oh, I'll take it anywhere you want me take it.
Casey: What? Okay, I guess. I just -- I'm glad that jerk didn't mess up your life. Again.
Alison: Does give you perspective, though.
Casey: On -- on what?
Alison: I mean, this is a guy who literally held my life in his hands, in that dorm room. And now look at him.
Casey: Yeah. It does make me see the bright side of pushing a mop.
Alison: I'm serious. It couldíve been a disaster up there. But you made it come out all okay.
Casey: No, we did. Together.
Janet: They meant well. They know what they did was wrong.
Jack: I'm sure all the chores they'll be doing will hit that fact home.
Carly: Well, at least we can still agree on something. I better go.
Janet: Do you want to stay? Have some strawberry shortcake?
Carly: No. No, I donít. Thank you. Parker. Let's go.
Carly: I have to pick up your sister.
Parker: I think I'm going to stay. I'll see you at home.
Janet: Let's cut in to this sucker. Come on.
Liberty: You guys better be ready for an out-of-body experience.
Janet: Because then, when you get back into your body, you're going be at least ten pounds heavier. Trust me.
Jack: That's a price we'll have to pay, right?
Janet: That's right. All right.
Liberty: That's amazing! Oh, good job!
Janet: You're destroying my cake. What are you thinking?
On the next "As the World Turns" --
Lily: Why don't you have the wedding here?
Carly: As a matter of fact, if Janet wants me there, it would be my pleasure to be there.
Josie: Your husband hired me to pretend I had a psychic connection to Jennifer.
Meg: You need to look me in the eye and tell me what you did to Dusty.
