Casey: Listen. Ali, I --

Alison: Don't --say anything. Please.

Casey: This is why I was trying to warn you. I didn't want you to get hurt.

Alison: I know, Casey. Okay? You were right. Is that what you want to hear? You were right about Matt and I was wrong. How could I be so stupid?

Casey: Take it from me, it's not that hard.

Luke: They released Casey. They dropped all charges.

Noah: Oh, thank God. You know, I can't believe he was arrested in the first place. He's not into drugs, he never was.

Luke: Yeah, sometimes I really wonder what his mother's thinking.

Noah: Well, probably when she found the pills in his backpack, you know, what else could she do?

Luke: Well, maybe she could act like her son's not a walking crime scene.

Noah: Yeah, but Luke, she can't ignore the evidence.

Luke: Yeah, but why just assume that he's dealing? That there can't be some good explanation?

Noah: We're still talking about Casey, right?

Luke: Yeah, I think so.

Noah: All right, just making sure.

Luke: Why do you always have to be so smart?

Noah: I'll work on it.

Luke: Hey.

Kevin: Hey, what's up?

Luke: Well, I've been texting you for days.

Kevin: Yeah, it's uh -- it's been a little crazy.

Luke: Look, I just wanted to say that I'm -- I'm really sorry about Elwood. I know that he was your friend.

Kevin: I know -- not so much.

Noah: Didn't you guys used to hang out, like, all the time?

Kevin: We had -- we had a lot of the same friends, I guess.

Luke: I just feel like it was my fault.

Kevin: Well, you weren't driving the car.

Luke: Yeah, but I was the one he was supposed to meet at that bridge. I just wish that I could have gotten him to talk to the cops.

Kevin: Well, that was Elwood.

Luke: Well listen. You should know that they, uh -- they traced the car.

Kevin: They did?

Luke: Yeah. It belongs to that Matt OíConnor guy. You know that note I found that was signed "M"? They think that he was Elwood's supplier. And that he found out Elwood that was going to talk.

Kevin: Did they -- did they catch him?

Luke: No.

Kevin: Good.

Noah: Uh, good? He may've killed two kids and he's still on the loose. How is that good?

Margo: Yes. Well thank you, Warden. Yes, we already notified his P.O. I'll let you know as soon as we pick him up. I hope so, too. Thank you.

Cop: It's definitely the car.

Margo: Is there any sign of OíConnor?

Cop: No, but there's something I think you should see.

Kevin: I didn't mean, it's good that they haven't caught him. I'm glad they know who did it. I just -- I just want this to be over so I can stop thinking about it.

Luke: Yeah. I hate thinking about it too.

Kevin: Yeah, it's freaking depressing. Well, I gotta go.

Noah: Well, what can I get you?

Kevin: What?

Luke: Well, didn't you come in here for a coffee?

Kevin: No, I didn't -- I didn't realize what time it was. I just -- I don't have the time.

Noah: Is it just me, or was that way too bizarre?

Jade: So it's not that expensive, but the food is supposed to be really good. I think Casey will like it.

Lily: You said it's in Chicago?

Jade: Yeah, Lincoln Park, on the north side. He probably hasn't had a decent meal since his mom arrested him. I just want his first dinner to be special.

Lily: Does he know that you're taking him?

Jade: Not yet.

Lily: Ooh. Well, what if he already has something planned for his first night out of jail?

Jade: You mean, something that doesn't include me?

Lily: The two of you weren't exactly on the best of terms before he was arrested, Jade.

Jade: Yeah, we werenít. But it's different.

Lily: Are you sure?

Jade: Positive.

Lily: I just don't want to see you get hurt, Honey.

Jade: I'm asking him to dinner. I'm not asking him to marry me.

Lily: Good.

Jade: I'll save that for the second date.

Casey: They never had anything on me dealing. And they -- they dropped the possession charges.

Alison: That's great.

Casey: Yeah, my P.O. said that even a misdemeanor would've thrown me back in prison. I think they -- they had the papers already written up.

Alison: What happened to "Innocent until proven guilty"?

Casey: If you figure that one out, will you let me know?

Alison: Well, at least you can laugh about it.

Casey: Well, what else can I do? I did a lot of thinking when I was in jail. And I realized, you know, if I'm walking around with all these grudges, I might as well just check myself back in.

Alison: Wow, you seem really centered.

Casey: Uh-oh. Psych class?

Alison: No. Rehab counselor.

Casey: That's what the prison shrink says to me all the time, you know? "Stay in the middle ground. Don't let the highs get too high, don't let the lows get too low."

Alison: Well, that's tough. You know, especially the second part.

Casey: Are you talking about Matt?

Alison: I hate feeling like a fool.

Casey: No, it happens to everyone.

Alison: No, I keep thinking there's something wrong with me that I could just -- I could let him play me like that.

Casey: Well, that's what he does. And he's really good at it.

Alison: I know, but even after you told me about catching him in the med supply room, I -- I still bought his story. You know, he just seemed -- he seemed different this time. And I know, I know that's what he does.

Casey: Don't beat yourself up about this. If believing in the wrong person is a crime, a lot of people would be in jail.

Alison: How come you're being so nice to me?

Casey: When I was doing a lot of thinking in jail? I was thinking about you. You know, how we used to be so amazing, and then we messed up everything.

Alison: Yeah, I've been trying to figure that out myself.

Casey: You get anywhere?

Alison: Maybe we're just too damn good at messing stuff up?

Casey: Yeah, yeah. Well you know what they say, if you're good at something, it's better to stick to it, right? See, I miss this. Me and you, just hanging out.

Alison: Yeah, I miss it, too. So, with all that thinking you did, do you have any idea how we could get back there?

Casey: As a matter of fact, I do. It's a little sophisticated. You know, part of the new, mature Casey Hughes I'm working on.

Alison: Oh, I can't wait to hear it.

Casey: Yeah? Well, I call do-over.

Alison: A do-over?

Casey: Yeah. I think we should go back to the way things were, you know, before this crap started and pretend like it never happened.

Alison: Just like that?

Casey: Just like that.

Alison: What makes you think it won't happen again?

Casey: Oh. We'll know what to look for. And if either one of us sees it coming, you know, we have to promise to each other we'll talk it out, right away.

Alison: What makes you so sure we can get it right?

Casey: It's different now.

Alison: How?

Casey: First of all, Matt's gone.

Alison: Okay, our problems had nothing to do with Matt.

Casey: Well, he was playing us from the minute he got here.

Alison: Maybe he was, Case. But I mean, we were shaky before he ever showed up.

Casey: No, he made it worse. He wrecked our friendship. But look, now -- it's just me and you again.

Alison: Is it? What about Jade?

Casey: She's just a friend.

Alison: Huh, that is not the way it looked the night I went to your house and saw the two of you together.

Casey: That -- it didn't mean anything.

Alison: Maybe not to you.

Casey: Her, either.

Alison: You have to be sure about that.

Casey: I am, I am.

Alison: Okay, you need to talk to her, Casey. You know, make sure things are clear with her, so she knows where things stand.

Casey: I don't think I have to do that.

Alison: I do. Make things clear with Jade. And then, maybe we can talk about a do-over.

Lily: I'm just saying you ought to be careful. I mean, you've gotten your signals crossed with guys before.

Jade: I'm tough. And I'm also not wrong about Casey.

Lily: You didn't think you were wrong about Will, either.

Jade: Yeah, well Casey's not Will. And he's not Ricky. He's not married. He's not seeing anyone. And he's not wanted dead or alive anymore.

Lily: Wow. Some catch.

Jade: Look, when he wanted to prove that those drug charges were bogus, he reached out to me. He trusts me.

Lily: Well, just make sure that his feelings aren't just gratitude.

Jade: Oh, don't worry. He's going to be feeling a lot more than that tonight.

Noah: It seemed to me like Kevin couldn't care less about who killed Reg or Elwood.

Luke: Well, he just said that he wanted to stop thinking about it. And I don't blame him.

Noah: He also said he hoped that they didn't catch Matt.

Luke: I don't think that's what he meant.

Noah: Why are you defending him?

Luke: Why are you attacking him?

Noah: I'm not. I just think that something happened in between the two killings that really freaked him out.

Luke: Like what?

Noah: Like maybe he figured out who really did it.

Luke: But we know who did it.

Noah: Maybe we're wrong.

Luke: Well then so are the police.

Noah: Exactly. Which would totally freak me out.

Cop: Matches the car ID'd by the witnesses on the bridge. And it's registered to Matthew OíConnor.

Margo: Well it looks like he ditched it here after he killed Elwood. You said there was something else? Oh, yeah, this has been forced. And hotwired. So why would he hijack his own car? Hey you, who is the new guy?

Lily: Casey! It's so good to see you.

Casey: Is -- is Jade here?

Lily: Yeah! Jade?

Jade: I'm so glad you came!

Lily: I'll leave you guys alone. Casey, I just want to say that I'm really sorry for what you had to go through. And it's great to have you back where you belong.

Casey: Thanks, hey.

Jade: See, I knew your mom would realize you were innocent.

Casey: What? You knew then? Because I didnít.

Jade: Whatever. It's worth celebrating, though, right? I want to take you to this great restaurant in Chicago. I'm buying.

Casey: Listen. I don't -- I don't think we should do that.

Jade: Okay. Another night.

Casey: I'm not just talking about tonight.

Jade: Why?

Casey: You know, we've been really good friends lately, and I don't want to lose that.

Jade: Yeah, but we're already more than friends, aren't we?

Casey: We tried. You know, and that's where all these bad vibes started.

Jade: Yeah, but we're past that.

Casey: I -- I don't want it to happen again.

Jade: I get it. This is about Alison, isn't it?

Casey: No. No, it's not.

Jade: Matt's gone, and you're going to go back to her. Right?

Casey: We're going to try again, yeah.

Jade: You're an idiot.

Casey: Yes, I know I deserve that.

Jade: No, open your eyes, Casey. It's not going to work. She's going to keep you around until the next guy shows up that she wants.

Casey: Maybe. But I can't just give her up.

Margo: Alison, Alison, I need a minute. It's important.

Alison: Um, I already told you everything I know.

Margo: No. No information. I need help.

Alison: With what?

Margo: We found Matt's car. It was broken into and hotwired.

Alison: So he was telling the truth?

Margo: Well, it looks like he was. Because the prints that we found were on the lock weren't his.

Alison: Okay, so then it couldn't have been him who was driving the car when Elwood was killed?

Margo: However, he did take off. And that's a problem.

Alison: Well, maybe he was just scared.

Margo: I need to talk to him.

Alison: I don't know where he is.

Margo: Well have you called him?

Alison: Not recently.

Margo: Would you?

Alison: You think he'll answer?

Margo: Yeah, he would. He trusts you.

Alison: And you want to use that?

Margo: Yeah. I do. I need to talk to him. If he didn't do this, he might be able to lead us to whoever did.

Alison: Yeah, I don't think I want any part of this.

Margo: Alison, please. Please. I know that he's a very dear friend of yours. But if he killed those two boys, he doesn't deserve your friendship. If he didn't, he needs your help. Because he's running scared.

Alison: He'll be arrested either way.

Margo: Well if all he did was panic, I'm not going to hold that against him.

Alison: You mean that?

Margo: I wouldn't say it if I didnít.

Alison: What do you want me to do?

Luke: You really think that Kevin knows something?

Noah: I do.

Luke: And that's based on the way he was acting just now?

Noah: No, it's not just that. It's the way he -- it's the way he ran his whole entire sleazy campaign.

Luke: Yeah, but -- but I'm not sure that's all Kevin. I think that was Mark Vero. You know, he was so messed up on drugs, he didn't even know what he was doing.

Noah: Well, he should have made it his business to know. Everything your campaign manager does, he does with your name on it. Problem was, Kevin didn't take the time to figure out what was being done with his name.

Luke: And that's why you're suspicious of him?

Noah: It not just that. You saw him before. He was acting so jumpy, it wasn't just -- it was more than just because of a death of a classmate. Look, I know you really want to trust him. But I think you need to really let that go. Before someone else gets killed.

Casey: I don't know what's going to happen between me and Alison, okay? Maybe you're right, maybe she'll dump me.

Jade: It's not a maybe.

Casey: But it doesn't mean we --

Jade: If you're going to say we can be friends, I don't want to hear it.

Casey: But I think we can be.

Jade: I think you have to go.

Casey: Jade --

Jade: You said what you came to say. Now leave.

Casey: I'm sorry.

Alison: Hey, Matt, it's me. Please give me a call as soon as you get this. I think I can help you. There's a warehouse on Fourth Street. And we can meet there. And it's safe. And -- just call me so we can set up a time to meet. Please. This is very important. Okay.

Margo: Wow. That was good. Thanks.

Alison: This better not be a trap.

Margo: I promise you -- I promise, if Matt can help us figure out how Elwood Hoffman and Reg Addington lost their lives, then he is off the hook, and we're one step closer to getting a killer off the streets. All right? So call me as soon as he contacts you. Thank you.

Mark: Hi, Alison.

Alison: Mark! What are you doing here?

Mark: I'm just looking for you.

Alison: Why? I don't have the key to the meds, if that's what you're thinking.

Mark: I already told you, I am clean.

Alison: Yeah, I know you said that, but -- are you okay?

Mark: Me? I'm great. I just need you to come with me.

Alison: Uh where?

Mark: I can't tell you that, Alison.

Alison: Why not?

Mark: Because I am a junkie, and we both know that junkies never tell the truth.

Alison: You're high, aren't you?

Mark: No. But that could also be a lie, couldn't it?

Alison: Okay. Let me go get you a doctor.

Mark: What for?

Alison: You need help.

Mark: I don't need help, Alison. I need you. You don't have to worry, Alison. I'm not going to jump off a building or anything, okay?

Alison: Yeah, I'm not going anywhere with you.

Mark: Are you sure about that? Because I can give you and your boyfriend a lot of trouble.

Alison: I don't have a boyfriend.

Mark: The cop's kid.

Alison: Casey? What about him?

Mark: You walk out of here with me like everything is fine, and he doesn't get hurt.

Alison: Where is he?

Mark: I will show you.

Alison: I'm not going anywhere with you until you tell me where he is!

Mark: Well, then he's dead.

Alison: Mark!

Mark: Let's go!

Alison: You promise Casey won't be hurt?

Mark: Sure, I promise. But you know what? That could be another one of those junkie-lie things, couldn't it?

Alison: Why are you doing this?

Mark: Do you ever want to see Casey again? Stop asking me so many questions. Now, let's go.

Casey: Hey, I'm looking for Alison Stewart.

Resident: She was just here. I don't know where she went.

Casey: Okay. Thanks.

[Cell phone ringing]

Casey: You checking up on me?

Margo: Yes.

Casey: Well, I'm at the hospital, I'm looking for Alison. Did you find Matt?

Margo: No, not yet. Is Alison there?

Casey: Uh somewhere.

Margo: Ask her if Matt called and then call me back.

Casey: Why would he?

Margo: She left him a message.

Casey: How do you know that?

Margo: Because I asked her to. I need to talk to him.

Casey: You're using her as bait?

Margo: Casey, it's just a phone call. You know, she's setting up the meeting, and then we'll take it from there. She won't be anywhere near him.

Casey: He's a cri -- he's a criminal, maybe even a murderer!

Margo: We're not so sure of that now.

Casey: What are you talking about?

Margo: We found evidence that it might not be Matt.

Casey: You're kidding me!

Margo: That's why Alison agreed to call him. She wants to be sure he's exonerated.

Casey: She said that?

Margo: Yes, she wants him to be treated fairly. And he will be.

Casey: What -- what if you're wrong? Then he'll have her! And who knows what he'll do to her!

Margo: I told you, she's not going to be anywhere near him.

Casey: Well, I'm going to make sure you're right! And then I'm going to ask her to stop doing favors for people that don't give a damn about her.

Margo: Casey.

[Casey calls Alisonís cell phone]

Alison: This is Alison. Please leave a message.

[Voicemail beeps]

Casey: Hey, it's me! Um, where are you? I need to talk to you right away.

Lily: At least he was honest with you.

Jade: Yeah, I guess.

Lily: It would've been worse if he'd strung you along.

Jade: I wouldn't have minded.

Lily: Of course you would have. At least now, you can feel free to move on.

Jade: Why should I?

Lily: Sweetie, he has feelings for somebody else.

Jade: Because she's letting him think there's a chance with her. How many times does he have to do this before he realizes that she's using him until someone better comes along?

Lily: Maybe not this time.

Jade: Why? Because people change?

Lily: Sometimes they do.

Jade: No, they donít. They get worse.

Lily: You don't believe that.

Jade: Just watch. Alison's going to dump him. And I intend to be there when she does.

Luke: Noah, I just think I should give Kevin the benefit of the doubt.

Noah: Okay. But you know he was acting weird before.

Luke: Yeah, because all of his friends are dropping dead all around him. I know the feeling.

Noah: I hope that's all it is.

Luke: When have I ever been wrong about people?

Noah: You want a list?

Luke: You keep one?

Noah: I do, just in case you need a reminder.

Luke: Oh. What would I ever do without you?

Noah: You'd probably fall apart.

Luke: I probably would.

Noah: Yeah, I'd probably fall apart without you.

[Cell phone ringing]

Luke: Hey.

Casey: Have, have you seen Alison?

Luke: No. It's Casey. He wants to know if you've seen Alison. Noah hasn't, either.

Casey: I need to talk to her.

Luke: What else is new?

Casey: I'm serious, Luke.

Luke: Is it about Matt?

Casey: My mother's trying to find him by using Alison as bait.

Luke: Why would she do that?

Casey: She doesn't think he's the killer.

Luke: Then who is?

Casey: She doesn't know.

Luke: We'll, I'll let you know if I see her.

Casey: Thanks.

Luke: You're never going to believe this. All of a sudden, the cops think the murderer might not be Matt.

Noah: No way. Well, who do they think it is?

Luke: They don't know.

Noah: Wait a minute. Whoever it was, had to know that Elwood was going to be at the bridge. If it wasn't me, and it wasn't you --

Luke: No, Noah! It's not Kevin. Kevin's not a murderer, or even a drug dealer.

Noah: It would explain why he was so jumpy before when we told him the police thought it was Matt. He thought he was getting away with it.

Luke: No, it -- it can't be him.

Noah: You can't be sure.

Luke: Well, we have to go ask him.

Kevin: Hey, Mark, it's me. I've got to talk to you! The cops aren't looking for you. They're on OíConnor. You're safe. All right, I've got to go.

Luke: No, you've got to talk to us first.

Kevin: About what?

Noah: Who were you just talking to?

Kevin: No one. A friend.

Noah: We're done playing games with you.

Kevin: And you're done bossing me around! And it's none of your damn business who I was talking to!

Noah: It was "M," wasn't it? You know who he is.

Kevin: No!

Luke: Kevin, he's a murderer. Why would you try and protect a murderer?

Kevin: I don't know anything! Hey, all right -- give me -- give me back my phone!

Noah: Oh, my God. The last number he dialed was to Mark Vero!

Luke: "M"!

Kevin: You don't know what you're talking about!

Luke: Is it Mark, Kevin?

Kevin: Let go of me!

Luke: Did he kill Reg? And Elwood? Oh, my God! How long have you known?

Kevin: I just found out.

Luke: And didn't you tell anyone?

Kevin: He's -- he's my friend. All right? I stick with my friends.

Noah: Yeah, well, it stops now.

Alison: Where is he? Casey? Mark, where is he?

Mark: I have no idea.

Alison: You said he was here.

Mark: I lied.

Alison: Why did you bring me here?

Mark: Well, I couldn't have your friend getting suspicious, could I?

Alison: You just said he wasn't here!

Mark: Your other friend. You know, you've got a lot of them.

Alison: You, you mean Matt! Oh, you heard me tell him to meet me here!

Mark: Pretty smart for a porn girl.

Alison: You know, if you heard that call, then you know it was for the police. And that they're going to be here soon.

Mark: Well, not unless you call them and tell them he called you first. Which I don't think you're going to do.

Alison: What do you want with him?

Mark: It's a long story, Alison.

Alison: Mark, you need to get help.

Mark: It's a little late for that.

Alison: No, it's not! We can go back to the hospital. I can just say that I came here with you voluntarily. And you can go back into treatment.

Mark: Alison, there are dead bodies involved.

Alison: What bodies? You got Reg and Elwood. You gave Elwood those bad pills?

Mark: Those pills were not bad! Everyone else who took them had a great time. The kid must've been allergic or something.

Alison: Then what about Elwood?

Mark: He was going to talk.

Alison: Oh, my God, Mark!

Mark: You know what, Alison? That's -- that's water under the bridge.

Alison: And you think you can frame Matt for all this?

Mark: Well, how hard can it be? He's an ex-con. His name starts with "M." And Casey will sell his mom on the story 'cause he wants OíConnor out of your pants.

Alison: Shut up!

Mark: I don't think I like the way you talk to me.

Alison: I don't think I like the way you talk to me, either. You think you've got this all figured out?

Mark: Yeah, pretty much.

Alison: It's not going to work, Mark. Just come back with me. Didn't I help you that time on the roof? Me and Casey? We'll help you again.

Mark: And why would you want to do that?

Alison: Because I'm huge on second chances, okay? I got one. More than one. And we'll make sure that you get one.

Mark: And what have you ever done that's so bad, huh? The porn?

Alison: Among other things.

Mark: You know, I thought you were amazing in that video. And that night in my dorm, you put on a hell of a show for me and my boys.

Alison: Okay, Mark, let me help you.

Mark: No, no, no, I want you to put on a show on for me right now.

Alison: I'm not going to do that.

Mark: I think you are.

Alison: Oh!

Alison: What are you doing? What the hell is that?

Mark: This is going to help chill you out. We'll do a little dance, we'll party, and we'll wait for your boyfriend to get here, all right?

Alison: Don't! Mark, please!

[Cell phone ringing]

Alison: That -- that's my phone! It's probably Matt! If I don't answer, he's not going to come here!

Mark: Don't try anything!

Alison: I won't, I swear! Hello?

Casey: Ali! Thank God! Where are you?

Alison: Hey, Matt. I'm glad you called.

Casey: No, no, it's Casey.

Alison: Oh, did you get my message?

Casey: What message?

Alison: Yeah, I'm already at the warehouse.

Casey: What -- what warehouse?

Alison: Yeah, that's right, the one on Fourth Street. Okay, Matt, I will wait here for you.

Casey: No, it's not Matt! What's wrong with you?

Alison: Hurry. It's really important. He's coming.

Mark: Good job. Here's your reward.

Alison: No! What was that? Crystal meth, heroin?

Mark: Just go with it, just go with it.

Alison: What did you give me? How much was it?

Mark: Just a pop.

Casey: Come on, Ali! Answer!

Alison: This is Alison. Please leave a message.

Casey: Damn it!

[Voicemail beeps]

Casey: Ali, call me! It's Casey.

Lily: Wow, you look great.

Jade: Thanks.

Lily: Where you going?

Jade: You're not going to like it.

Lily: Casey?

Jade: I figured I'd go to the hospital. Catch him before he leaves work.

Lily: You're right. I don't like it.

Jade: I told you. I'm going to be there when Alison dumps him.

Lily: As a friend?

Jade: As whatever.

Lily: Jade, you are a beautiful, intelligent girl. And he's made it perfectly clear that he's not interested in you. Why can't you just let him go?

Jade: He'll change his mind.

Lily: What if he doesn't?

Jade: He wanted me before. Hey, with Alison out of the picture, why wouldn't he want me again?

Lily: Because he already had you.

Jade: Don't take this the wrong way. But that is so 20th century.

Lily: Jade, there are some things that don't change. Like heartbreak. And that's exactly what you're going to feel if you don't let him go.

Luke: Kevin, you need to tell us everything you know about Mark Vero.

Noah: Starting with where he is.

Kevin: I don't know where he is.

Luke: But you think he's involved in this? Kevin, come on! For God's sake, before he hurts somebody else!

Kevin: Look, I -- I thought he was clean when he came out of rehab. I mean, he seemed different. I figured that was the point. But after a while, I -- I got the feeling he was using again. But I couldn't prove it.

Noah: Was he dealing?

Kevin: I can't prove that, either.

Luke: But you think he was.

Kevin: I guess.

Luke: And did you think about this before Reg died, or --

Kevin: No, after Elwood, I swear. That's when he started getting really weird.

Noah: Why didn't you tell someone?

Kevin: I wasn't sure. I was afraid if I did anything, he would totally freak out. You know he tried to kill himself once.

Noah: So you decided to wait until he kills someone else?

Kevin: No. No. God, no, I couldn't live with that.

Luke: Well then you have to help us stop him.

Alison: Mark, please. You don't want to do this.

Mark: Sure I do.

Alison: I know it's hard to get clean. But I did it. And you can, too.

Mark: Oh, you are such an inspiration, you know that?

Alison: I'm just trying to help you.

Mark: This isn't the junkie ward, Alison.

Alison: I know that.

Mark: So how about that show?

Alison: I'm not going to do any show.

Mark: Well, I think you just need a little bit more of an incentive.

Alison: No, please! Oh, God, stop!

Mark: Feels good, right?

Alison: No.

Mark: Well, don't worry. After this, I think one more will do the trick.

Alison: Why are you doing this?

Mark: It's all part of the plan you said I couldn't come up with. Cops are going to walk in here, find you OD'd. And what are they gonna think? O'Connor, right? It's a no-brainer.

Alison: No. Please, no more.

Mark: Don't you worry. After this one, you won't feel a thing. Ever.

Alison: Please!

Mark: You know what? I'm really sorry we didn't have time for our party. But I always thought you were so hot.

Matt: Hey! What the hell are you doing? What did you do to her? Hey! Ali! Are you okay? Hey, hey, hey! Talk to me! Please! Ali!

Noah: Call him, Kevin. Find out where Mark is.

Kevin: I just tried. You heard me. He didn't pick up.

Luke: Well then try him again! Now!

Matt: Hey, hey! Hey!

Alison: Matt?

Matt: Yes, it's me! Stay with me, okay?

Alison: Matt.

Matt: Ali, Ali! No, no, no. No, no. Okay, hang on. Hang on. I'm going to bring you to the hospital! Okay? All right. They're going to need to know what he gave you. Now come on. Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.

Casey: Alison! Hey what the hell are you doing to her, man?

Matt: Dude, it's not what it looks like --


Casey: Hey, look at me. He's not going to hurt you. Hold on to me, hold on!

Noah: Did Mark tell you where he was going? What he was going to do?

Kevin: No.

Kevin: This is him.

Luke: Well, find out where he is!

Noah: And don't give it away!

Kevin: Hey. What's up?

Mark: Dude, you tell me. Your voicemail sounded pretty urgent.

Kevin: I just wanted to check in. Where are you?

Mark: Chilling. Listen, I need a favor. I need to borrow some cash.

Kevin: Sure. Eh, how much?

Mark: $500?

Kevin: Yeah, I think I can, uh, swing that. I have to go to the ATM around the corner. Where do you want me to meet you?

Mark: The bridge.

Kevin: You mean the bridge where Elwood --

Mark: Yes. Why? Too sentimental for you?

Kevin: No, no, no. The bridge is fine. When?

Mark: Just as soon as you can get there.

Noah: Good job.

Cop: Officer Berger. For you, Lieutenant.

Margo: Lieutenant Hughes.

Noah: It's Noah. Matt OíConnor isn't the killer. It's Mark Vero.

Margo: Are you sure?

Noah: Yeah. And he's headed for the bridge. The same one where Elwood was hit by the car.

Margo: Where are you?

Noah: Al's diner.

Margo: I'll let you know when we have him in custody.

Noah: Okay.

[Luke sighs]

Noah: They're going to get him.

Kevin: I still need to go. I mean, if Mark sees the cops and not me, he's just going to disappear.

Luke: Well, we can't let that happen.

Noah: I don't think Margo wants us there.

Luke: Yeah, but we can't let him get away with this.

Noah: No. We canít.

Luke: Okay, Kevin, get down there where he can see you.

Noah: And you've got to keep him talking till the police arrive.

Luke: And be careful.

Kevin: Right. Okay. Mark? Mark, are you there? Mark?

Mark: Kev, I told you to come alone!

Kevin: No, you didnít.

Mark: Did I have to spell it out for you?

Kevin: It's -- its okay.

Mark: It's not okay! What are they doing here?

Kevin: Look -- we all want to help.

Mark: Bull! Did you bring the cash?

Kevin: No.

Mark: Why the hell not?

Kevin: Because this has to stop before someone else gets hurt!

Mark: Stop? Are you kidding me? After everything that I did for you, I ask you for one thing, and this is what I get back!

Kevin: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, but it has to end.

Mark: You know what, Kev? You're right. It does have to end. [Grunting]

Noah: Don't you move, Mark!

Mark: Stay back!

Luke: Drop the pipe!

Mark: Stay away from me!

Noah: You give it up!

Mark: Shut up, both of you!

Luke: What are you doing?

Noah: Get down from there, the cops are coming!

Mark: He called the cops?

Noah: No, I did. You're sick, Mark. You need help.

Mark: You faggots think I'm the one who's sick?

Luke: I don't know. Maybe we should just let him jump. No! Mark!

Resident: She's stable. I'll tell her mother she's here.

Casey: Thanks. Please wake up. You promised me a do-over, remember? I'm going to hold you to it. Hey, hey.

Alison: Where am I?

Casey: Uh, you're -- you're in the hospital. You're safe. Matt can't touch you here.

Alison: Matt -- what are you talking about?

Casey: I know what he did to you. And I made sure he'll never be able to do it again.

Alison: Casey. It wasn't Matt.

Noah: Take my hand!

Mark: I'm not touching you!

Noah: Then you're going to die, you moron!

[Police siren wailing]

Luke: Noah!

Mark: Don't touch me!

Luke: Give me your hand, dammit!

Mark: No!

Noah: Get up here!

Mark: No!

Luke: Get up!

Margo: Luke! Noah!

Noah: This is him! Mark Vero!

Margo: Cuff him! [Coughing]

Noah: You okay?

Kevin: My back!

Margo: Don't move. Don't move. Just an ambulance, and then read him his rights!

Luke: Tell the lieutenant what you told us.

Kevin: He said he did it. Sold Reg the drugs. [Coughing]

Kevin: Forced Elwood off the bridge.

Luke: Is that good enough?

Margo: All right, we'll get his statement at the hospital. Do you mind my asking what you two were doing here?

Luke: Mark was expecting to meet Kevin here. We were afraid he wouldn't show if Kevin didn't come.

Margo: All right, well that's smart. But next time you two want to play cops, why don't you apply to the academy?

Luke: Only if I get to be Starsky.

Noah: You are so totally Hutch.

Margo: I withdraw the statement.

Luke: Can we leave now?

Margo: Yes, you can. Guys, thank you.

Kevin: Luke? Luke, Luke? I'm sorry. I'm sorry about everything.

Luke: Let's get out of here.

Casey: I can't believe it was Mark all along.

Alison: Matt had nothing to do with it.

Matt: Hey, you're awake. You all right?

Alison: Yeah, I'm okay. How about you?

Matt: I've been worse.

Casey: Hey, man, look, I, I -- I don't know what to say. I, I, it -- it was wrong.

Matt: Yeah. You were.

Casey: I'm sorry.

Matt: So who was that guy at the warehouse?

Alison: Mark Vero. He killed Reg and Elwood. He was going to kill me, then you, so you would get blamed for everything.

Matt: And you knew who he was?

Alison: It's a long story. You need a doctor.

Matt: I'm okay.

Alison: You saved my life.

Jade: Casey! Are you all right?

Casey: Nothing happened to me.

Jade: What about Alison?

Casey: She'll be fine.

Jade: Thank God. I'm so glad you're all right!

Casey: If you count me being a loser as all right.

Jade: You want to get out of here?

Casey: Yeah, I do.

On the next "As the World Turns"

Katie: She could have any man she wants. And she wants only you.

Henry: Yes. After she cross-pollinates with Brad.

Vienna: Oh, yeah.

Henry: I knew it! It's not just the chromosomes that are co-mingling! It's everything else!

Dusty: Hey, John -- you think you can draw a picture of me?

Craig: Who's this?

Johnny: Daddy.

Emily: Don't do this!
