Meg: Ssh. She fell asleep in the car.

Dusty: You know, I wasn't even thinking. It's probably way past her bedtime.

Meg: Are you kidding me? This is the first time she's fallen asleep before midnight since she was born.

Dusty: Well, I thought Al's was better than showing up at the farm.

Meg: Did my big brother scare you off?

Dusty: Whatever. How you doing? You getting used to being a mom?

Meg: Well, aside from being totally sleep-deprived, I love it.

Dusty: I'm not surprised. I remember that Home-Ec class we took in high school?

Meg: Yeah. Where we pretended to be parents to a watermelon.

Dusty: You took it very seriously.

Meg: Yeah, and you didnít. I remember thinking you'd be a horrible -- I'm sorry.

Dusty: No, no, it's okay. We both know I was never interested in having kids. Until Johnny came along.

Meg: Yeah, things don't always turn out the way you think they will, do they?

Dusty: They donít.

Meg: I'm still having a hard time accepting that I'll be raising Eliza alone. Paul and I had so many plans -- well, I guess there's no point looking back, right?

Dusty: You did the right thing.

Meg: Do you really think so?

Dusty: I know so. I only wish I could say the same about myself.

Maddie: If this doesn't win Casey back, nothing will.

Casey: Wow.

Maddie: You weren't supposed to see that!

Casey: Why not?

Maddie: It's a New Year's surprise.

Casey: About New Yearís, I want to --

Maddie: You're not going to cancel, are you? I mean, you're still going to celebrate with me, and Luke and Noah?

Casey: Yeah, I'll be here. It's just, I have to have dinner with my parents at the Lakeview. It's kind of a tradition.

Maddie: I remember. They invited me when we were dating.

Casey: Right. I forgot. But it's cool if we hook up here when I'm done?

Maddie: As long as you show up, I'm fine.

Casey: Okay, well -- I'll see ya.

Maddie: See ya.

Casey: She's back.

Henry: It's great, isn't it? Did I hear him say he'll see you later?

Maddie: He's coming to the party.

Henry: Finally.

Maddie: What?

Henry: Well, I was just wondering why you suddenly showed up on my doorstep. And now I know. You want Casey back, don't you?

Alison: I just wanted to check in.

Lucy: We have to be quiet. Johnny's sleeping.

Alison: It's kind of early.

Lucy: He said he was tired.

Alison: But you know it's more than that.

Lucy: He's getting weaker. We have to find a donor soon.

Alison: The samples I got yesterday are already at the lab. And I'm going to try and nail down Margo and Casey tonight -- maybe even Barbara.

Lucy: I'm sorry. I know you're doing everything you possibly can.

Alison: I know, I just -- God, I wish I could've gotten your father when I ran into him yesterday.

Lucy: I'm just happy you managed to get him away from my door. I almost lost it when Johnny started laughing.

Alison: You and me both.

Lucy: The last thing I need is for my father to know we're here.

Alison: You might not have a choice.

Lucy: What do you mean?

Alison: If it turns out that no one else is a match, we're going to have to convince Craig to be tested. We won't have a choice.

Lucy: That doesn't mean he needs to know where we are.

Alison: Hey, Craig made it perfectly clear that he's not interested in helping any random child. So tell me how we're going to convince him to donate bone marrow without telling him it's for his own child?

Dusty: I should have handled things differently.

Meg: What do you mean, in what way?

Dusty: With Craig.

Meg: What made you think about Craig?

Dusty: I've missed so much of my son's life already. Maybe if had made peace with him.

Meg: How does anybody make peace with a guy like Craig?

Dusty: For my son's sake, you know, I should've found a way.

Meg: You know, you shouldn't beat yourself up wondering, "What if?"

Dusty: Don't you?

Meg: All the time. And it doesn't do any good. We both did what we did, for all the right reasons.

Dusty: I thought so.

Meg: Okay, you know what? Come on. It's the beginning of a whole new year. A year where there's still hope that you will find your son.

Dusty: I just hope when I do, it's not too late.

Paul: Why won't Dusty just believe me?

Barbara: Give him time, Honey.

Paul: Time is something we don't have. Johnny's in trouble. Jennifer -- is Johnny okay?

Josie: Johnny's missing, Paul. We don't know where he is.

Paul: What?

Josie: Lucy took him a while ago and we haven't been able to locate her. That's why, when you said you had a sense that he was in danger, I asked if you had any idea where he might be.

Paul: All I see is what I told you. Airplanes and parachutes. I don't know what that means, I just know that's what comes into my head when I think about Johnny.

Josie: Can you come up with anything more specific? Just try to concentrate, see what happens.

Paul: My head's all full of cotton. I would be much better if we could just get off this medication, don't you think?

Barbara: The doctor's not going to go agree with that, Honey.

Paul: Yeah, well maybe we should talk to him again. Because somebody needs to do something. If I don't come up with something soon, Johnny could die!

Dusty: Craig's out there roaming free, Paul's had another breakdown and I'm living in the past. Nothing's changed.

Meg: Sure it has. We all know what's going on with Paul this time. He can't fool anyone. And yes, Craig may have gotten away with attempted murder. But if he's here, he's no closer to Johnny than you are.

Dusty: That's true.

Meg: Okay. So stop talking about dead ends. You made a promise to keep to Jennifer, that you would raise Johnny as your own. And I think you could still keep that promise.

Dusty: Thanks.

Meg: I know you. You're not going to give up until you do.

Dusty: No, I wonít. I canít. Thanks for reminding me.

Paul: I know I've done a lot of really stupid things. But I wouldn't lie about Johnny. I swear to God --

Josie: You're his mother. Do you think that these premonitions could lead us to Johnny?

Barbara: Based on Paul's history, I'd say yes. But in his current condition, I don't know. It could be the illness talking.

Josie: Well, we have to check it out. At least if it's nothing, then we can let go of it.

Barbara: I tried to do that. Johnny was all I had left of Jennifer. And when I lost him, it was like losing her all over again.

Josie: That must've been so painful.

Barbara: It was devastating. And I've tried to move on. But the thought of opening that wound again -- the only thing that has gotten me through this nightmare is knowing that Johnny's with Lucy. She's a good doctor, a good person. And so I know he's being well taken care of, and that he's safe.

Lucy: I have no clue how I'd handle if we ended up needing my father's help. I'm just praying that someone else ends up being a match so that we can find a donor for Johnny and leave before anyone finds out we were here.

Alison: What about Dusty?

Lucy: What about him?

Alison: Are you planning to stay hidden from him too?

Lucy: I don't have a choice.

Alison: He's not Craig, Lucy.

Lucy: But he's connected to him through their son. I don't want to get Johnny involved in another battle between then. What? You think I'm wrong?

Alison: No. But knowing what Dusty went through to find Johnny -- and to think that he's so close, and for Dusty not to be able to even see him -- it just feels wrong.

Lucy: I'm truly sorry for what this has cost Dusty. I never meant to hurt him. And maybe, one day in the future, he can see Johnny. But right now all I can afford to focus on is finding a donor and saving my little brother's life.

Alison: I'm on it, okay? Next stop, Casey Hughes.

Lucy: You won't tell Dusty, will you? I mean, I know you're friends --

Alison: I gave you my word that I won't tell anyone. And I wonít.

Maddie: What do you think of the color?

Henry: I don't know if it goes with the flushed cheeks you got when I asked you about Casey. Yes or no, Maddie. Is he the reason you came back?

Maddie: Can't I visit my brother without having my motives analyzed to death?

Henry: No. Not when it's obvious you didn't come back to visit me.

Maddie: Okay, it's true. I wanted to see Casey too.

Henry: Why?

Maddie: I dated the guy for over a year.

Henry: And you stopped dating him a long time ago. Why revisit that?

Maddie: What do you have against him, anyway?

Henry: Do you want a list?

Maddie: Forget it.

Henry: No, he's trouble, Maddie. And he's going nowhere fast.

Maddie: Just because the guy did time doesn't mean his life is over.

Henry: I don't see signs of him jump-starting it anytime soon.

Maddie: Did you take the world by storm when you were his age?

Henry: I'm just -- you deserve someone who's worthy of you. And he has changed. He's not the same person he was.

Maddie: Neither am I.

Henry: Somehow, I think that freshman orientation is a little less taxing on the soul than life behind bars.

Maddie: I hope that wasn't supposed to be funny.

Henry: Look, it's a new year, okay? Why not throw out the old once and for all and start fresh?

Maddie: Who says I can't start fresh with Casey?

Henry: How? How, Maddie? By quitting school and giving up your dreams? By coming back here and earning change at the Save-n- Shop? Come on!

Maddie: You don't understand.

Henry: Yes, I do understand, actually. I do, because I wasted a lot of my time in a dead-end relationship, waiting for someone to be who I needed them to be.

Maddie: You mean Katie.

Henry: And it wasn't until I stopped waiting and moved on that things began to happen. And look at me. Look at me now. I have a wonderful woman who loves me as much as I love her. I own a diner, I have a stake in this nightclub. My bestseller is about to end on every bookshelf in America.

Maddie: And I'm happy for you. But being with Casey isn't going to stop me from pursuing my dreams. Look, I know you don't trust him because he was an ex-con but --

Henry: You think that's what it is?

Maddie: What else?

Henry: He broke your heart, Maddie! Have you forgotten that? Because I havenít. And I'll be damned if I'm going to stand around and watch him do it to you again.

Casey: Hey, Alison. What's up?

Alison: Hey, can you meet me at the hospital?

Casey: What happened? Are you okay?

Alison: Oh, yeah, I'm fine. I just need your help on a little project I'm working on.

Casey: See, I've got to meet my parents at the Lakeview. And I'm about to jump in the shower.

Alison: Fine. I'll come to you. Do not leave until I get there, okay?

Casey: Okay.

Alison: Barbara? How are you doing?

Barbara: I'd be doing a lot better if my son were not in the hospital for the holidays.

Alison: I'm really sorry.

Barbara: If you talk to Gwen or Will, please don't say anything to them. I don't want to ruin their Christmas.

Alison: No, no, of course not.

Barbara: Thanks. This is Josie Anderson. Alison Stewart.

Alison: Wow, you look so much --

Barbara: We know, we know how much she looks like Jennifer. I'll tell Paul that you were asking about him, thank you.

Alison: Actually, I have a favor to ask of you. My friend's little girl is really sick -- she needs a bone marrow transplant. And I'm trying to help her by finding a donor match.

Barbara: I'll drop a check in the mail for you, Alison --

Alison: No, no, I actually -- I don't need money. I was wondering if you would allow me to draw some blood to see if you might be a match.

Barbara: I don't think I'd be a very good candidate, not after my cancer.

Alison: Well, I'll check that out. But while we're here, you would mind if I could just get a sample?

Josie: I'm happy to be tested.

Alison: Well, that would be great. After I'm done with Barbara, yes, I'll come find out.

Barbara: Let me call my doctor, and I'll get back to you, okay? Please?

Alison: This child is only 5 years old and I would like to see her make it to her sixth birthday. But I really have only a small window to test as many people as possible.

Barbara: Johnny would be 5 -- okay, I'm all yours.

Alison: Thank you. Why don't we go in here?

Alison: After Barbara, I'll just have to get some more syringes. Will you be here?

Josie: Yeah, I'll be here.

Alison: Great. I'll come back to find you.

Barbara: I'll call you?

Meg: You've helped me get through a lot of trying times in my life. And you made me feel something that I haven't felt in a long time -- strong. I would like to think that I can do the same for you.

Dusty: You do.

Josie: Sorry to interrupt. Do you have a minute?

Dusty: Whatever you have to say, you can say it in front of Meg.

Josie: It's about Paul.

Meg: Maybe I should go --

Dusty: What did you say about being strong?

Josie: Look, I know you said you didn't want to hear anything that Paul had to say. But after what he told me last night, I thought you might change your mind.

Dusty: Paul's a psychopath. I don't care what he says.

Josie: Can you at least listen?

Dusty: To what? If you want to hang out with him that's fine. Just keep me out of this.

Josie: I'm not hanging out with Paul because I want to. I'm trying to help you find your son.

Meg: What?

Josie: Paul is convinced that Johnny's in danger.

Meg: Paul said that?

Dusty: He's lying.

Meg: Why would he do that?

Dusty: Because I delivered your baby, he didn't, now he's saying my kid's in trouble.

Josie: Maybe this isn't about Paul getting back at you. What if your little boy really does need help?

Dusty: Paul never said where Johnny is.

Josie: Maybe he can.

Dusty: No. I'm not going to listen to this.

Meg: Hey, hey, hey. Dusty, you have to listen. For Johnny's sake, you don't have a choice.

Casey: Okay! I'm coming!

Alison: Oh, nice.

Casey: Oh, did you just rush over here?

Alison: No, you just take really long showers.

Casey: You want to find out?

Alison: I'll pass.

Casey: Oh, come on. I know you want a piece of this.

Alison: Actually, I do.

Casey: Ha-ha! I knew it!

Alison: Your blood, not your body.

Casey: Oh, oh, thanks a lot.

Alison: I'm trying to find a donor match for a sick kid.

Casey: Yeah, yeah. Your friends' kid from L.A., right?

Alison: You saw it?

Casey: Mm-hmm. I saw the picture on TV.

Alison: Oh, yeah. That was really embarrassing.

Casey: No, don't be. It was -- it was really hot.

Alison: Yeah?

Casey: Mnm-hmm.

Alison: All right. So, uh, how 'bout it? Gonna let me take your blood?

Casey: I don't know why, but there's something sexy about that.

[Laughter]

Alison: Can you please for once not have your mind go to the gutter? I'm trying to save a kids' life here.

Casey: I'm with ya. Okay, just -- just do it quick.

Alison: All right, all right. I know. You have dinner with your parents, right?

Casey: Mm-hmm.

Alison: That sounds like a fun way to spend your New Years.

Casey: Yes. And you know how my mom and dad are party animals. I think they're actually going to stay up till like 9:00.

Alison: Well, um, what are you going to do after?

Casey: I don't -- ow! Ow! Oh. You didn't even warn me there.

Alison: I didn't want you to give you a chance to tense up.

Casey: Oh, that's sweet of you.

Alison: So, uh, if you're not too tired from your rocking dinner with the folks there is a New Years party going on at Metro that I think you might like.

Casey: Yeah, I'm going to be there.

Alison: Oh, you are?

Casey: With Maddie.

Johnny: Lulu?

Lucy: Oh, hey, Angel, I'm right here. Thank you. How you feeling? You better after your nap?

Johnny: Can we go outside and play now?

Lucy: Oh, Honey, we really need to -- you're really sick of this room, aren't you? All right. Well, maybe we can go out for just a little while. Okay?

Dusty: Okay, what new garbage did Ryan come up with?

Josie: Airplanes and parachutes.

Dusty: What?

Josie: He thinks that Johnny's in a place with airplanes and parachutes.

Dusty: Like an airport?

Josie: He doesn't know.

Dusty: Of course he doesnít.

Josie: Well, I thought that it might strike a chord with you.

Dusty: No, you thought wrong.

Meg: Okay, look, this whole time you've been searching for Johnny, are you sure that there hasn't been a place that Paul might be referring to?

Dusty: About a hundred airports.

Josie: But what if you --

Dusty: Does that narrow it down?

Josie: Went through your notes again or you called your investigator.

Dusty: Why? What good would that do? It means nothing, and you know it.

Josie: I don't know it. I'm just telling you what Paul said.

Dusty: You accomplished your mission. Tell your boss if he wants me to take the bait, he's got to work a lot harder.

Josie: You know that I'm not working for him anymore.

Dusty: Yeah, right.

Josie: Okay, for the record, I was trying to help. I'm sorry, again, for interrupting.

Dusty: You see? You see why I never mention anything?

Meg: Okay, okay, what if -- what if, and I know Paul is in bad shape right now, but he can see things that nobody else can.

Dusty: No, no, no. He's messing with me.

Meg: But you're not sure. How would you feel if there's some truth in this? You've been searching for your son for so long, can you really take any chances on losing him for good?

Casey: Are you mad at me?

Alison: Why would I be mad at you?

Casey: I don't know, because maybe I'm going to the party with Maddie?

Alison: Don't be ridiculous. I think it's great that the two of you are going out again.

Casey: It's one party.

Alison: Well, you never know where it might lead.

Casey: Well, what about you?

Alison: Me?

Casey: Yeah. You mentioned Metro. Are you going to be there too?

Alison: Uh, yeah, I don't know. I might head over for a couple minutes. I mean, um, we might. Me and my date.

Casey: What? You? A date who with?

Alison: Some guy from work.

Casey: What -- what guy?

Alison: He's a resident. You don't know him.

Casey: Wait, what happened with your big decision to stay away from men for a while?

Alison: What can I say? It's New Yearís Eve. Time to make new resolutions.

Casey: So I guess I'll see you at Metro?

Alison: Maybe.

Casey: Is there another party I don't know about?

Alison: No. We just might want to stay in. I don't know. Either way, I won't be sitting at home feeling sorry for myself.

Casey: Well, glad to hear it.

Henry: If Casey hadn't left you never would have gone to college. Now don't trade that for an ex-con who already hurt you once and probably will hurt you again.

Maddie: Like you hurt Vienna? You guys were going to get married, but you bailed on the wedding. And she could have written you off then and there, but she didnít. And because she didn't, you turned into the man she always knew you could be. That's what I want to do for Casey.

Henry: What does he want to do for you? That's what I thought.

Maddie: Look, can't you just give us the same chance that Vienna gave you, to make things right?

Henry: Fine. Fine. I will give it a shot. If he hurts you though, just a little bit --

Maddie: He wonít.

Casey: So, you'll call me and let me know if I'm a match?

Alison: It's a big commitment if you are. Are you sure you're up for that?

Casey: Sure. I'm sure. Yeah, this could be the first thing I've done in months that's actually contributed to society.

Alison: Well, you can contribute now by talking your mom and your uncle Craig into getting tested as well.

Casey: Well, I don't think my mom's not a problem. I'm sure she and my dad would be more than happy to get on board. Uncle Craigís that's -- that's a different story.

Alison: I thought you two got along.

Casey: We did until, you know, he pushed my mom that one step too far. Now, she acts like she doesn't even have a brother.

Alison: Yeah, but I'm sure if you talk to him, you could smooth things over. And while you're at it, if you could convince him to let me get a sample of his blood that would be great.

Casey: What do you even need with him anyway?

Alison: He -- he just fits our basic ethnic type we're looking for.

Casey: What type is that? Middle-aged white guys? I didn't realize there was a big shortage.

Alison: Just try to convince him, okay, Casey?

Casey: Okay. I'll give it a shot.

Alison: Okay, I should go.

Casey: Wait, are you -- are you getting ready for your big date?

Alison: Right. Yeah. Bye.

Casey: Happy New Year, Alison.

Dusty: You going to be okay?

Josie: I don't bite.

Meg: I'm fine. So, uh, how is he?

Josie: Not great. Barbara thinks it helps if I pretend to be Jennifer but I'm not sure it's doing any good.

Meg: I'm not sure Paul can be helped.

Josie: Is that why you left him?

Meg: I deluded myself for a long time because I didn't want to face how sick he was. And now for my daughter's sake, I can't take any more chances.

Josie: I can understand that.

Meg: And you should be careful too. Don't get sucked into an emotional situation where it ends up being a bottomless pit.

Josie: It's hard to walk away when Paul keeps talking about saving that little boy.

Meg: And you believe him?

Josie: I do.

Meg: But you've seen what he's capable of when it comes to getting what he wants. I mean, you helped him do it.

Josie: I'm not proud of that --

Meg: No, I'm not condemning you. I'm just curious. Isn't there any part of you that thinks maybe Dusty is right, that Paul is using Johnny to get back at Dusty?

Josie: Obviously, Paul is suffering from a lot of delusions right now. But when it comes to Johnny, I have no doubt that he believes he is telling the truth. Why are you here? I know that you're trying to be a friend to Dusty, and -- is there any other reason?

Meg: No. Why else?

Josie: Paul is still your husband. It's only natural for you to want to check on him and see if he's getting better.

Meg: I'm not sure if Paul could ever get better.

Josie: But if he did -- are you hoping the three of you could be a family again?

Meg: You know, you were right the first time. I'm here for Dusty. And if Paul could lead Dusty to Johnny, then he could right so many wrongs. And as for being a family with Paul -- whether he gets better or not, it's never going to happen.

Paul: Dusty? I -- did Jennifer tell you what I saw?

Dusty: What does it mean?

Paul: I don't know what it means. I just know what I saw, airplanes and parachutes.

Dusty: I need more. That's not enough.

Paul: I'm sorry. I don't know what it means.

Dusty: Try harder.

Paul: I'm sorry.

Dusty: I'm out of here.

Paul: Wait. A lion. I see a lion.

Dusty: A lion?

Paul: That's what I saw.

Dusty: Where?

Paul: I don't know.

Dusty: At the zoo? In the jungle?

Paul: I don't know --

Dusty: Oh, when are you going to stop playing games --

Barbara: Dusty --

Dusty: Huh? Am I the only one seeing this?

Paul: You're wrong --

Dusty: Am I?

Paul: I'm just trying to help.

Dusty: No, you're not. I'm done.

Josie: What happened?

Dusty: This is the last time I want to hear about visions or whatever you call them, got that?

Meg: What did Paul say?

Dusty: He saw a lion.

Josie: A lion?

Meg: What does that mean?

Dusty: Don't ask me. Maybe you know. You two come up with that together?

Josie: How can you ask me --?

Dusty: Why are you even here? You're not Jennifer. You never will be.

Meg: Dusty, I'm so sorry.

Dusty: For a second I'd thought, oh, man, it's like losing my boy all over again. I've got to get out of here. Come on, I'll take you home.

Meg: No, I'll grab a cab.

Dusty: I'm not going to leave you here. What if Paul sees you or the baby --?

Meg: He wonít. And besides, I want to take Eliza up and show her off to my friends on the nursing staff who haven't seen her yet.

Dusty: You sure?

Meg: Positive.

Paul: Why won't Dusty just believe me?

Barbara: Because he's scared.

Paul: Yeah, well, I'm scared too. I'm scared for Johnny... and I wish I could see more but I canít. Is that Meg? Is that Meg? Meg?

Barbara: Meg, wait!

Lucy: Hey, I bet Mr. Lion was happy to get out of the room too, huh? So --

[Cell phone rings]

Alison: Hey, I'm just on my way up.

Lucy: Oh, we're not there.

Alison: What happened? Don't tell me someone saw you.

Lucy: No. Johnny was just going a little stir crazy. How's it going on your end?

Alison: Uh, pretty productive, actually. I got samples from Casey and Barbara. And I left Margo a message.

Lucy: That's great.

Alison: Unfortunately, I still haven't been able to get a sample from your father. I even tried to have Casey work on him and convince him but I guess Craig is on the outs with that branch of the family, too.

Lucy: One of many reasons I'm hoping someone else will be a match. Which reminds me, I found some information on anonymous donor registries online. I left my computer on if you don't mind checking it out.

Alison: Yeah, no problem. Oh, except I don't have a key.

Lucy: Well, the room is registered in your name. If you tell the desk clerk you lost your key, I'm sure he can give you another one, no problem.

Alison: Will do.

Lucy: I'll see you in a bit.

Alison: Okay. Bye. Hi, I'm Alison Stewart and I'm staying in room 1020 and I lost my room key.

Clerk: I need to see some I.D.

Alison: Sure. Here you go. I promise I won't lose this one.

Casey: Hey, Jerry, my man. How are you doing?

Clerk: Can't complain.

Casey: Was that Alison Stewart I just saw get a key from you?

Clerk: She lost hers.

Casey: What room is she in? Come on, you've been hanging out a lot lately. I just want to go up and say hi.

Clerk: I'm not supposed to give out that information.

Casey: Do you really think I'm going to do anything to get you in trouble? Okay, how about this? I'll put in a good word to my grandma the next time you're up for a raise.

Clerk: 1020.

Casey: Yes, you're the best, man.

Henry: You sure he's the right guy for you?

Maddie: I am.

Henry: Then I hope tonight is everything you want it to be.

Maddie: Well, I promise I'll give you all the juicy details when you and Vienna get back from your romantic getaway.

Henry: Okay, not too many details, please, all right?

Maddie: Happy New Year, Henry.

Henry: Come here, happy New Year.

Maddie: It will be. I know it.

[Knock on the door]

Casey: Hey, it's me. I know you're in there. I saw you come up.

Alison: Uh, I'll be right there. Uh, just hold on!

Casey: What's going on in there?

Alison: Uh, one minute.

Casey: I don't mean to bother you or anything --

Alison: Uh, what's going on?

Casey: You tell me. I was down in the lobby about to meet my parents and saw you get a key -- wait, what are you doing here?

Alison: Uh, I was about to get in the shower so --

Casey: No, no, I mean, here. What are you doing at Lakeview in this room?

Alison: It's New Yearís Eve.

Casey: Yeah. And what? Did your mom kick you out of the house or something?

Alison: No. I got it for my date.

Casey: You got this room for a date with a guy you've never even talked about before?

Alison: Well, if we decided to not end up going to the party or even if we do, you know, we could just -- come back here afterwards.

Casey: What? And like have sex on the first date --

Alison: Okay, excuse me, Mr. Sleeping-with-my-boss-who's- old-enough-to-be-my-mother -- don't act so shocked.

Casey: Whoa, whoa! And I need to get in the shower and get ready so if you could just --

Casey: I do not believe you.

Alison: Excuse me?

Casey: I can buy that you're going on a date with a guy you met from work -- but I do not believe you got this room so you could jump in the sack with him.

Alison: Believe what you want.

[Maddie remembering]

Casey: Why don't you just tell me what you're really doing here?

Maddie: I thought you'd forgotten our song.

Casey: I couldnít. Any more than I could forget you. I tried, nothing worked. I'm never going to stop loving you, Maddie.

Maddie: You know nobody thinks you and I are going to make it.

Casey: Well, I guess then we're going to have to prove them wrong.

Maddie: Now that's what I call a happy new year.

Alison: Why are you even here? Don't you have a date with your old flame?

Casey: No, I'm not leaving this room until you tell me why you really got it.

Alison: Fine. You want to know the truth?

Casey: Yes, I do.

Alison: I got it -- because of you.

Casey: Me?

Alison: Yeah, I was hoping you would come.

Casey: Oh, come on, Ali.

Alison: What? You don't believe me?

Casey: No. I donít.

Alison: Fine, then I will prove it to you.

Casey: Okay, how are you going to do that? Huh? Prove it.

Barbara: She has her daddy's eyes, you know.

Meg: Yeah, I know. We should go.

Barbara: May I hold her, please?

Meg: Yeah.

Barbara: Come here, you. Oh, what a little bundle you are. Yes. Yes. Say hi to your Nana. I used to hold your daddy like this when he was not quite this small. I used to tell him how much I loved him. I still do. And he loves you. Yes, he loves you. May I take her in to see her daddy?

Meg: Paul is in the hospital for a reason, Barbara. And I am sorry for you and for him. But until he gets better, if he gets better, I can't let Eliza near him.

Paul: Was I right? Was it them?

Barbara: Yes, it was them. Eliza is beautiful and very fussy so they couldn't stay.

Paul: Meg doesn't want me to see Eliza, does she?

Barbara: She's concerned, Honey.

Paul: Concerned about me?

Barbara: Yes, she is. She needs for you to get well. And if you get well, then you can be with Eliza and Meg won't be worried.

Paul: What if I got out of here and Meg still won't let me see her?

Barbara: Honey, you don't have to think about all that right now. You just have to get well. Come on, it's a new year. It can be a whole fresh, new start. You need to get well for your sake and your baby girl --

[Paul cries]

Barbara: You need to get well.

Johnny: Mommy!

Josie: No, I'm still not your mommy.

Lucy: Come on, let's go, okay?

Josie: I'm the one who found him earlier at the Lakeview.

Lucy: Oh, thank you.

Josie: It's so strange. He called me mommy then too. But you and I don't look anything alike.

Lucy: He hasn't been feeling well. Uh, I really got to take him home.

Johnny: I don't want to go back to the hotel, Lulu.

Lucy: But Sweetie, but it's late and you really need to get your sleep, okay?

Josie: So you're not his mother?

Johnny: She's Lulu.

Lucy: Thank you. Come on, baby. Come on.

Johnny: Mr. Lion.

Lucy: Oh, thank you. Can't go anywhere without it.

Meg: What did Paul say?

Dusty: He saw a lion. Yeah, I need to know something. With all the date we've collected, is there anything to suggest that Johnny might be in a place where he would come across a lion? Yeah, feline. Well, not just in Africa, you know, you got those mountain lions out west -- we've got to through here. No. No, that's what I thought. That's it. Thanks.

Josie: Can you tell me how long you keep staff directories?

Nurse: Not longer than five years in the system.

Josie: And do they still include photographs of the doctors in residence?

Nurse: Yes, they do.

Josie: I'm trying to track down a doctor who I met a while ago. I'm pretty sure she was a resident here at Memorial. Actually, maybe you know her, Lucy Montgomery?

Nurse: Oh, I remember Dr. Montgomery. But she hasn't been here in a long time.

Josie: Do you still have the directory for the year that she left?

Nurse: Yeah, sure.

Josie: I just want to make sure it's the same Dr. Montgomery.

Nurse: The list is alphabetical.

Josie: Thank you. Oh, my God! Oh, my God, that's her. That little boy has to be Johnny.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Noah: If you don't knock him dead tonight, I don't know what will.

Lucinda: Why don't you want to be alone with me?

Luke: So, tonight, really, is the night.

Noah: Finally.
