Janet: I'm just counting down the hours until I become Mrs. Jack Snyder.

Jack: Me, too. I only wish that we could be together tonight instead of both of us working. But hey, that's what you get for throwing a last-minute wedding.

Janet: Oh, come on now, I've waited this long for the man of my dreams. One more night can't hurt.

Vienna: You need to hang up, Janet.

Janet: Excuse me?

Vienna: Now.

Janet: I think I'm in trouble.

Jack: Tell Vienna to give the bride-to-be a break.

Janet: I better not push my luck. I gotta go. Call me later, okay?

Jack: Will do.

Janet: Okay, love you. I'm sorry, Vienna. I'm so excited about the wedding tomorrow, I totally lost track of how long I was on the phone.

Vienna: Well, if you're having that much trouble concentrating on work, you might as well just leave.

Brad: Oh, you're here!

Henry: Thank God!

Jack: What's wrong?

Henry: We need you to come with us.

Brad: Now!

Jack: You've been free men for all of 48 hours. What the hell kind of trouble have you gotten yourselves into now?

Janet: No, wait, Vienna, I can't go. I can't go. I really need the money. I'm gonna start a nest egg for Jack and me, and it's very important. We need all the money we can get.

Vienna: Don't, don't! Don't give me your sob story. I am the boss! And what I say goes.

Katie: I wouldn't argue. Vienna on the warpath can be frightening. Let's go.

Janet: Wait. You want me to come with you?

Vienna: Yeah, let's go.

Jack: Well, I'm waiting.

Brad: We can't tell you here.

Jack: Why not?

Henry: It's personal.

Brad: Extremely personal.

Jack: You know what? I don't even want to know.

Brad: You don't have a choice. You're already in.

Jack: In what?

Henry: If you come with us, you'll find out.

Jack: I can't just leave. I'm in the middle of a shift.

Henry: Actually, you can.

Brad: We already cleared it with Margo.

Jack: You what?

Brad: Trust me.

Jack: Famous last words.

Henry: All right, all right, all right. Trust me then. Grab him.

Jack: Hey!

Jack: Come on, enough stalling, guys. Just tell me what kind of trouble you're in and why I had to come to Yo's to find out.

Henry: We're not in trouble.

Brad: You are.

Henry: Big time.

Jack: What are you talking about?

Henry: You're getting married again.

Brad: And we're going to make your last night of freedom one to remember.

[All shouting, clapping]

Jack: Very nice, you got me. Revel in it, because it's the last time it's gonna happen.

Brad: Oh, come on. Did you really think we were going to let you tie the knot without throwing you a bachelor party? Let's get this poor sucker a beer. Let's get this party started!

Janet: You're firing me, and now you want to buy me a drink?

Vienna: No, nobody's getting fired.

Katie: But somebody's getting married. Surprise!

Janet: Oh, my God!

Katie: Welcome to your bridal shower/bachelorette!

Janet: Oh, my God. So does this mean I still have a job?

Vienna: Well, me and Henry are counting on it.

Janet: Oh, thank God!

Lily: And we can't have a bridal shower without a veil.

Vienna: And you can't have a bridal party without drinks. Bartender, hello! Anybody there?

Katie: Wait until you see what we've planned for you.

Janet: This is so amazing. You guys, this is the best bachelorette, bridal shower party I've ever had. Even if it is the only one I've ever had. But it's the best, by far.

Vienna: What the hell is she doing here?

Carly: If my being here is in anyway offensive to you, I --

Janet: It is not offensive to me, Carly. Please, I want you to stay. Enjoy the party, have a drink. I mean, it's going to be great, right? And all of us girls, we can all help with the bartender duties --

Carly: I wouldn't want to make the girls uncomfortable. I'll stay behind the bar and try to remain invisible.

Lily: Let's sit.

Katie: Yes, letís.

Janet: Thank you. Oh, great.

Lily: I think it's time we get the bride a drink.

[All shout]

Katie: That's a fantastic idea --

Lily: What's your pleasure, Janet?

Janet: Okay, don't laugh, but a chocolate martini.

[All shout and clapping]

Vienna: Do you even know how to make that?

Carly: Chocolate martini, coming right up.

Katie: Well, make it a pitcher in honor of the bride.

Vienna: Now, do you think you can handle that?

Carly: I certainly hope so, Dear.

Lily: Wait, if we're having martinis, I think we should open the presents while we can see straight.

Janet: Oh, that's a great idea --

Vienna: The first one is a practical one.

Janet: Thank you very much. Practical, huh? Okay, let's see what --

[Laughter]

Janet: This is practical?

Vienna: Yes, every woman must have something to keep her man in line.

Janet: Oh, I like that. All right, what's next here? Oh, my God --

Vienna: Every woman needs something to get her man out of line.

Janet: Ooh, am I sensing a theme here?

Vienna: Yes, and the theme is s-e-x.

Janet: I'm all about that, Baby. Yeah!

Holden: So are you nervous?

Jack: About what Brad's got planned?

Holden: No, about getting married?

Jack: Holden, it's not like I haven't done it before.

Holden: Well, that makes two of us. Or rather, three of us. Right, Brian?

Brian: How did you know that?

Holden: Lily told me that you were married once before.

Brian: Uh, well, I'm just hoping that the second time's a charm.

Luke: Can I get a seltzer with lime, please?

Bartender: Smart move. Wouldn't want to have to toss you out on your ear again.

Noah: Oh, looks like I missed the big surprise moment.

Luke: Oh, well, you made it. That's what counts. Do you want to get a drink?

Noah: Later. I see that Brian is here.

Luke: Yeah, Dad insisted.

Noah: Things any better between you two?

Luke: Uh, well, he thinks I'm a spy. I think he's a closet-case. But yeah, yeah, things are great.

Noah: Okay, I still think that you should let it go.

Luke: Well, you know, it's kind of hard when he's doing this whole doting husband routine.

Noah: You told me that you didn't want to mess things up for your grandmother.

Luke: Noah, I didn't mess it up. Brian did by marrying her and hitting on me.

Noah: Okay, why are you jumping down my throat about this? Are you drunk?

Luke: No. Maybe I should be. Look, I didn't -- I didn't mean it.

Noah: I'm going to go congratulate Jack.

Brad: Well, you've got nothing on my brother who's turned walking down the aisle into a hobby, which either makes him most optimistic man in the world --

Henry: Or the dumbest.

Jack: Oh --

[Laughter]

Brad: Or the dumbest -- anyway, hey, there are wedding crashers and singers. And then there's my big brother -- the wedding addict. But I really -- I really think that he has found his cure. A woman who can keep him happy and never let him down.

[Cheers]

Janet: Jack is so going to love me in this.

Vienna: Yeah, and then he's going to love you again.

[Laughter]

Lily: You are so bad.

Vienna: That's what makes me so good.

Katie: Okay, stand up, Janet. Hold it up, let me take a picture. I'll send it to Jack, so he can see what he is in for.

Janet: Here you go.

Katie: Hot. Okay, everybody up. A toast.

Janet: Oh, okay.

Katie: To Janet, the best thing to happen to Jack and the Snyder family. May you two finally have the happiness you deserve.

Janet: Ooh.

Vienna: Cheers!

Janet: Cheers!

Brian: Can I buy you a soda?

Luke: Are you serious?

Brian: Why not?

Luke: So does this mean you're not mad at me any more for getting in contact with your ex-wife?

Brian: Well, what you did was a gross violation of my privacy. But for the sake of this party and for the sake of Lucinda, maybe we -- and the least we can do is be civil to each other.

Luke: Yeah. Yes, we should do the right thing, for my grandmother's sake.

Brian: Scotch. Straight.

Henry: Looks like the entertainment has just arrived.

Brad: She's perfect.

Henry: Yeah, but Brad, are you sure you want to do this?

Brad: Look, my brother needs to loosen up. Can you talk to her? I'll take care of Jack.

Henry: So, do you want to get undressed in the ladies' room?

Mary Lou: Excuse me?

Henry: Oh, you just want to rip it off all right here and get down and dirty right off the bat?

Husband: What did you just say to my wife?

Henry: Isn't she the stripper?

Husband: What?

Henry: No, I just -- I don't know about you, but when I see those kind of heels, it leads me to one conclusion --

Brad: Henry, Henry, how many times do I have to tell you, you have to wear your glasses? I'm sorry, I'm sorry, please excuse my friend. He can't see two feet in front of his face.

Husband: Come on, Mary Lou. Let's get out of this dump.

Brad: I thought you knew what she looked like.

Henry: I got her off the internet.

Brad: Did you even see her picture?

Henry: No, it was a little fuzzy. But she was wearing a boa -- fuzzy thing.

Jack: After one taste of the pie, you know you got to marry --

Female stripper: You're Detective Jack Snyder, right?

Jack: Can I help you?

Female stripper: Well, you already have. You arrested that horrible man that robbed me.

Jack: I did? I'm sorry, I don't remember --

Female stripper: Well, I've been trying to think of a way that I can repay you --

Jack: Oh, please, seriously. I can't take any money.

Female stripper: Well, if you can't take money, will accept this?

[Cheers]

Jack: I thought we agreed, no strippers.

Brad: She's an exotic dancer.

Henry: Yes, she is.

[Cheers]

Jack: I'm never going to forget this.

Brad: That's the idea.

Brian: Another scotch.

Brad: She's an animal! Start the wildcat!

Brian: Oh, shake it, baby!

[Cheers]

Katie: That one is gorgeous.

Lily: I obviously went in a more conservative direction.

Janet: It's beautiful.

Lily: Good.

Janet: And I love pink. It makes me feel all girly.

Katie: Guys love lace.

Janet: One time, I had this baby blue. Every time Jack sees me in it, he tells me he just wants to rip it off and -- never mind.

Carly: What? Oh, come on, share your sexy bedroom story.

Katie: I think you have one more present, Janet.

Janet: Thank you.

Carly: No, Janet, really, come on. We don't have any secrets. Besides, whatever Jack said, I'm sure it's nothing that some of us haven't heard before, hey, Katie?

Katie: Oh, you just don't know when to stop, do you?

Carly: What? No, unlike Janet, of course, who knows when to cut her losses -- so you could hold on to your man.

Lily: Cut it out. What the hell has gotten into you?

Lily: I think you should stop, for your sake, and for Janetís.

Carly: Come on, how drunk can you possibly get on a chocolate martini?

Lily: Better you not find out.

Carly: Go back to your friends, Lily. I'm fine. Uh-oh. What now?

Male stripper: I'm looking for a Ms. Janet Ciccone.

Carly: Oh, um, the blushing bride with the veil.

Male stripper: Ms. Ciccone?

Janet: Um, I haven't seen my Uncle Dom since my first holy communion. I swear to God I didn't know anything about his construction business.

Katie: Why don't you let the officer tell you why's he here.

Vienna: Yeah, that's a good idea.

Male stripper: It's been reported that you've been seen inappropriately touching a member of the OPD detective team.

Janet: Jack is my fiancť.

Male stripper: Why should he have all the fun?

Janet: Huh?

[Cheers]

Janet: Yes, please.

Katie: Yeah.

Janet: Oh, yes, please.

[Cheers and clapping]

Janet: Oh, there's more? Oh, no. Oh, no. Jack! Okay, okay.

[Cheers]

Brian: Yeah, Baby. Give me some of that!

Jack: Okay, okay, you see that guy over there? His wedding was so sudden, he never even got a bachelor party. So, I think at this point, he needs right now more than I do.

[Cheering]

Brian: Okay! Don't tell Lucinda!

Holden: Don't worry, your secret's safe.

Luke: Okay, even you have to admit that he's overcompensating a little bit.

Noah: Why can't you cut the guy some slack? He is obviously confused.

Luke: Noah, why do you defend him all the time? Is it because he reminds you of the good old days when you pretended you were straight?

Holden: Hey, is everything okay?

Luke: Everything's fine, Dad.

Holden: Brian's having a good time, isn't he?

Luke: Yeah, it looks like he's trying to, at least.

Holden: What?

Luke: Nothing.

Noah: I'm getting out of here.

Luke: No, Noah, Noah, please. Don't leave.

Lily: Go, Janet!

Katie: It's probably a good thing Jack's not here.

Vienna: Oh, he's too busy with his own dirty dancer to worry about this one.

Lily: What -- they have a stripper? Holden insisted it was just going to be beer and pool.

Katie: Oh, I don't think Holden had anything to do with it. I'm sure Brad and Henry are to blame.

Vienna: Wow, she better keep her hands off my man.

Janet: Come on, you wallflowers, get over here!

[Cheers]

Janet: Come on!

Carly: You know something, you were -- you were right. This is too hard for me. I'm going to go.

Lily: I'll call you a cab.

Carly: No, no. I was sort of hoping that you could go for a walk with me. Maybe over to Yo's for a drink or something?

Lily: No, no, I don't think that's a good idea.

Carly: Why not?

Lily: Well aside from the fact you're in no shape to go anywhere to go anywhere, um, Jack's having his bachelor party there and we're not invited.

Carly: It's a public place.

Lily: Carly, what's this really about?

Carly: I just have to get out of here.

Lily: Let me take you home.

Carly: No, no, no, I just -- I think what I need is some nice, fresh air. You know, so can you ask Vienna to cover the bar? Because I swear to God, if I have to talk to her one more time, I'm going to pluck every shiny, long, healthy hair out of her head.

Lily: Okay.

Carly: Thanks.

Holden: Hey, is your party as crazy as this one?

Lily: Yours is about to get crazier. Carly left and I'm pretty sure she's headed over to Yo's.

Holden: What was she doing at Janetís shower?

Lily: Drinking too much, for starters. Holden, you've got to do your best and keep her away from Jack. Otherwise, we may not be hosting a wedding tomorrow.

Luke: Look, Noah, maybe I am obsessing a little bit about Brian.

Noah: You think?

Luke: It's just -- I'm not drinking right now and it's just making me feel so edgy.

Noah: Yeah.

Luke: And that's why I said that I wish I was drunk because maybe that way I wouldn't have to think about what a total wreck my life is right now.

Noah: And being wasted would help?

Luke: Temporarily.

Noah: I can't listen to this.

Luke: No, Noah, it's just that I'm -- I'm so lost right now. Especially about us.

Noah: Luke --

Luke: And I know -- I know --

Noah: I don't think this is the time --

Luke: I know you said that you didn't want me to push you. But could you -- could you please just -- just think about giving me another chance?

Noah: I canít.

Luke: Noah, please --

Noah: I'm sorry. I've got to go.

Brad: Come on, come on, you've got to admit, the stripper wasn't that bad.

Jack: She was fine.

Brad: Yeah, see, I told you he'd warm up to the idea.

Jack: Oh, I'm all warmed up. So prepare to be humbled. Holden, you're on my team. Rack them, boys.

Holden: I'll be right there, Jack. Carly --

Carly: Shhh! Nobody's supposed to know I'm here.

Holden: What are you doing here?

Carly: Well, I just came to see what a real bachelor party is like, you know?

Holden: You know what? You should probably just go home.

Carly: Probably. But you and I both know that I rarely do what I should do.

Holden: This is not the time -- this is not the time for you to pay Jack a visit.

Carly: You know what, Holden? This is not the time for you to interfere.

Holden: You know what? Let me take you home.

Carly: No! I need Jack!

Holden: You can't have him. He's not yours. Not anymore.

Carly: Ooh, I see. So now that things are straightened up and cleaned up for you and Lily, you wouldn't want things to be messy for anybody else.

Holden: Is that what you want to do, Carly? You want to mess things up for Jack, is that what you want?

Carly: Let me go.

Holden: Carly? Don't humiliate yourself like this.

Carly: You don't care about me.

Holden: That's not true.

Carly: You sure as hell never loved me, not like Jack. He still does, you know that? He loves me just as much now as he ever did.

Jack: Carly?

Carly: There's my G-man.

Jack: Are the kids okay?

Carly: Yeah, the kids are fine. I just came to see you, to ask you something.

Jack: What? Okay, what's -- what's going on? Why are you here?

Carly: Dance with me. One last dance. Before you marry somebody else.

Jack: Carly, I don't think that's --

Carly: Please, please, just give me this one thing. For old time's sake.

Vienna: We are out of vodka.

Lily: I will go see what's keeping her.

Vienna: Okay. Good.

Katie: Okay, now I see why Brad always called you juicy Janet. The way you were dancing -- I'm sure he wasn't the only guy who wanted to take you to prom.

Janet: Oh, come on, I was just joking around tonight. But yeah, back in the day, I really did think Bradley was the one. Little did I know the real thing was way down the road. And it was between me and his brother.

Katie: I know. But it's worth the wait, right? Jack is crazy about you.

Janet: I hope he stays that way.

Katie: Why wouldn't he?

Janet: Oh, a little lady named Carly.

Katie: You have nothing to worry about. I mean, when Jack and I were together, I don't think he was ready to be over her. But he finally is.

Janet: And what about Carly? Do you think she's ready to move on?

Katie: She won't have a choice.

Jack: You know, I'm not really in the dancing -- in the dancing mood. Why don't we have a seat and get a cup of coffee?

Carly: Do you hear that? Oh, I love it. Reminds me of Scampy's, remember? Remember that night? We danced the night away. That's when I first knew I really liked you.

Brad: What the hell is she doing?

Holden: She said she needed to talk to Jack.

Brad: It doesn't look like talking to me.

Jack: That's good. Side to side.

Carly: Whoa --

Jack: Big turn -- all right, okay, are you okay?

Carly: Yeah, just woozy, woozy, woozy --

Jack: Come on, let's have a seat.

Carly: No, you know what? I think it's a little bit late for that.

Jack: Carly --

Holden: Hey, hey, she'll be fine --

Jack: Holden -- she's sick.

Holden: You know what? You need to let her go --

Brian: I think I had one too many scotches.

Luke: Just one?

Brian: But I'm happy to see that you're not drinking.

Luke: Yeah, well, I'm not doing it for you, Buddy.

Brian: Listen, since you're abstaining, do you -- could you give me a lift home?

Luke: You really think that I want to be alone in the car with you?

Brian: Oh, I thought -- I was hoping we could get past -- never mind, never mind. I -- I'll call a cab.

Luke: You know what? Okay, okay, forget the cab. I'll take you home.

Brian: Oh, thank you, thank you. Thank you, thank you.

Jack: Are you all right?

Carly: Not really. Do you have a mint?

Jack: Come on. Let me get you home.

Carly: No, no, Jack, I don't want you to leave your own party.

Jack: No, its fine, its fine, Carly. I can come back.

Holden: What are you doing?

Jack: She's in bad shape, Holden. I'm taking her home.

Holden: Jack --

Jack: I have to do this.

Lily: Janet, you should get your rest. Tomorrow's your big day.

Janet: Yea!

Vienna: She wasn't out of there, was she?

Janet: Who?

Vienna: And I'll bet I know where she went.

Katie: No, you think Carly went to Yo's?

Janet: Carly went to Jack's bachelor party?

Lily: Even if she did, I'm sure that she realized quickly that it was a bad idea.

Vienna: Yeah, says the woman whose husband she seduced.

Katie: Vienna!

Vienna: No, I'm sorry, but she has a history with all the women in here. Carly -- Carly tried to steal Holden from you and she did. She did steal Jack from you and Simon from me. Along with my jewels. I mean -- no, there's no reason to trust her.

Janet: You know what? If she wants to make a move, let her.

Katie: We just agreed there's no reason to trust her.

Janet: But I trust Jack.

Carly: I can make it from here.

Jack: You sure?

Carly: Yeah. I feel awful about your car.

Jack: It happens. Just feel better.

Carly: Okay. I'm sorry I took you away from your party.

Jack: It's okay --

Carly: It's not. I should have listened to Holden. He told me I shouldn't --

Jack: Carly, let it go.

Carly: Okay. I'll see you tomorrow.

Jack: Right.

Carly: At the wedding. Your wedding.

Jack: Good night, Carly.

[Jack leaves]

[Carly sobs] Jack walks back in]

Jack: Hey -- come on, come on. Let's go.

[Jack picks up Carly and carries her upstairs]

[Carly comes out of the shower dressed her pajamas and robe]

Jack: Feeling better?

Carly: A little. I don't think I'm going to be able to eat chocolate again.

Jack: Here. It's to help with the headache you're going to have in the morning.

Carly: Thank you. I'm sorry about before. It just hit me when I walked in here -- you won't be coming back.

Jack: I'm getting married, not moving away.

Carly: You know what I mean.

Jack: I do. Come on, let's get you into bed. Anything else I can do for you?

Carly: Yes.

[Carly lies down and she reaches out for Jack and Jack lies down next to Carly]

Janet: Hi, Jack. It's me and we are all still over here at Metro. So I thought maybe if you wanted to stop by on your way home, um, I'll still be here. So, I hope you're having fun and I hope I see you soon. Bye.

Katie: Don't worry.

Janet: I'm not worried.

Lily: I'm supposed to pick up Holden so I'd better get going. I'll see you tomorrow?

Janet: Oh, I'll be there.

Lily: And so will Jack. Bye.

Janet: Bye.

Vienna: Well, not if Carly has anything to do with it.

Carly: Can I ask you something?

Jack: Anything.

Carly: Do you still love me?

Jack: Yes. But that doesn't change the fact --

Carly: You're getting married tomorrow. I know.

Jack: I should go.

Carly: This was the last time you're going to lie with me in this bed, isn't it?

Jack: We had our time, Carly.

Carly: Yes, we did. It wasn't so bad, was it?

Jack: A lot of it was pretty wonderful. Good-bye, Carly.

Carly: Good-bye, Jack.

Janet: I told you there was nothing to worry about.

Henry: Hey, where's my liebchen?

Vienna: Hi!

[Cheers]

Janet: Where's Jack?

Henry: Where's Jack, he said he had to go back to the police station, right, right?

Brad: Yeah, yeah, I'm sure he'll be here soon.

Janet: Bradley --

Brad: What?

Janet: Be honest with me. Is he at the police station or is he with Carly?

Jack: Has anybody seen my bride-to-be?

Janet: Ooh --

Jack: How are you?

Janet: I'm good. Oh, it's good to see you. I thought you were with Carly.

Jack: Actually, I was.

Brad: It's late, yeah.

Katie: Yeah, we should go --

Henry: We'll be right behind you.

Janet: Why were you with Carly?

Jack: She showed up at Yo's. Very drunk. And then she got very sick. In the bathroom, on the floor of my car.

Janet: Oh, so you took her home?

Jack: Yeah, and I put her to bed.

Janet: And?

Jack: And that's it. So tell me about your night.

Janet: It's not too late, you know.

Jack: For what?

Janet: For you to change your mind about the wedding.

Brian: I want to thank you, Luke, um, for driving me home. I don't usually get this -- drink this much.

Luke: Yeah, well, it happens to the best of us.

Brian: I -- guess I just needed to, you know, let loose a little bit. Lucinda -- you know, everything's that she's been going through -- it's been difficult. And scary.

Luke: Well, I'm glad to know that my grandmother's health is your top priority.

Brian: Oh, it has been. Yeah. I feel so lucky to have found her. Hey, how about a drink?

Luke: Hey, hey, how about some water, huh?

Brian: Water?

Luke: Yes.

Brian: That's a good idea. Hey, thanks.

Luke: Oh --

Brian: I'm sorry. When did I get so clumsy? You're -- oh, God.

Luke: Come here, come here, you know what? You are a complete mess. Brian, you don't want to do this.

Brian: Yes. Yes, I do.

Lily: What's going on?

Brian: Forgive me. It seems I had just a little bit too much to drink tonight and Luke was kind enough to give me a ride home. And expressing my gratitude, I got us both soaked.

Lily: Why don't I make you a sandwich, Brian?

Brian: Oh, thank you, but no, I think -- I think I'll just go to bed. Luke, thanks again for the ride home.

Holden: You're a good man, Luke.

Lily: He was in bad shape.

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

Holden: Listen, I know tonight didn't turn out like you expected.

Luke: Its okay, Dad. But thank you.

Lily: What was that about?

Holden: Noah. He came to the bachelor party tonight.

Lily: Well, that's a good thing.

Holden: It was until they got into a fight.

Lily: I'm just grateful he's not drinking.

Holden: Yeah, I think Brian had enough for both of them.

Lily: He's not the only one. Do you think we should call Jack and make sure Carlyís all right?

Holden: No, no, no. I think we should mind our business. You know what else I think?

Lily: What?

Holden: I think you should come to bed with me.

Lily: I'm coming.

Janet: Jack -- did you hear what I said earlier?

Jack: Yes, I was trying to pretend that you didn't say it.

Janet: I don't want you to feel obligated.

Jack: Oh, will you stop and listen to me for a second? I want to feel obligated. And committed. And connected. And married. To you. That's not going to change. Not now. Not ever.

Janet: You sure know how to sweet talk a girl.

Jack: Oh, Lady, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Vienna: Oh, my Lord! How dare you break into my chamber on this night of all nights?

Henry: I can't help it, my lady. For you have reawakened my heart. And various other parts of my body. And tomorrow -- tomorrow you must give your hand -- not to mention the flower of your maidenhood -- to the wealthy yet unattractive duke, whose vast fortune will protect your destitute yet genteel family from the downward spiral into poverty and degradation. Which brings me to why I'm here.

Vienna: Finally!

Henry: I must have you. Now. Before you give yourself to another man. I must! I must have you. I must! I must --

Vienna: Henry? Do you think we're making a big mistake?

Henry: Oh, man. I knew it. You wanted to play headmistress to my pupil tonight, I'm sorry --

Vienna: No, no, no, I'm talking about marriage. Do you think we're making a big mistake by not getting married?

Henry: That it's a mature, responsible thing to do.

Vienna: Is that what you want?

Henry: Is that what you want?

Both: No!

Vienna: My Lord!

Henry: My lady!

Luke: I don't know what your story is. But whatever you're hiding is your issue, not mine. But you married my grandmother. And I will not watch her be taken for a fool.

Brian: Luke, that's not what --

Luke: Consider this a warning, Brian. If you ever come on to me again, I will tell her everything.

Brad: Was the party that bad?

Katie: No, no, it was great. Great, until Carly got drunk and reminded everyone that she and I have both slept with Jack.

Brad: Yeah, I could have done without that reminder myself tonight.

Katie: It's just that knowing that she was running over to Jack brought back a lot of bad memories.

Brad: You're okay with him marrying Janet, right?

Katie: Oh, yeah. More than okay. It's just that I realized what I didn't realize then, and that's that Carly did me a favor. If she hadn't kept Jack from me, I never would have gotten to be with you.

Brad: No regrets?

Katie: No.

Brad: Good answer.

Janet: You know, in traditional Italian weddings, the groom comes over the morning of the wedding, picks up the bride and they walk to the church together.

Jack: Oh, really? What else happens in traditional Italian weddings?

Janet: Well, after the groom picks up the bride, as they're walking along the path, the townsfolk place obstacles in their way to make sure they can weather any challenge.

Jack: Oh, we've taken a walk like that -- a few times. And we know that we can handle whatever the world throws at us -- as long as we're together.

Janet: Even Carly?

Jack: Even -- even Carly.

Janet: Well, I'm going to hold you to that.

Jack: Hey, wait a second. You know, she's going to be a part of our lives, though. But you're the woman I'm going to go to sleep with every night. And you're the woman I'm going to wake up with every morning.

Janet: Speaking of -- I've got to go before I turn into a pumpkin.

Jack: One more spin around the dance floor, just for good luck?

Janet: Oh, I'm starting to think we don't need luck.

Jack: And why is that?

Janet: Because for the first time in a long, long time, I think the world is really on our side.

On the next "As the World Turns"--

Paul: What my wife does is none of your business.

Craig: From the look of things, whatever she's doing, she's doing it without you. Just the person I was looking for.

Brad: Hey!

Meg: I'm afraid of you, Paul. I can't let you near my child.

Janet: Is this really happening?

Jack: Yeah.
