Alison: Thanks for coming. They won't let me check out unless I have someone with me.

Emily: No, I'm glad -- I'm glad I could be here for you. How you feeling?

Alison: You know, shaky. Being high again was -- was so scary.

Emily: Don't be scared, okay? You're the bravest person I know, Ali. Don't be scared. I'm so proud of you, Baby.

Alison: Wow, I didn't think you still had working tear ducts.

Emily: I love you more than my life. You're my baby sister. I don't want to lose you -- most of the time.

Alison: Believe it or not, that helps a lot.

Emily: So, have you spoken to Matt?

Alison: Yeah.

Emily: He saved your life, Ali.

Alison: I know.

Emily: And got beat up for it.

Alison: Casey didn't realize.

Emily: Does he ever?

Alison: Okay, let's not do this now.

Emily: Matt really likes you, you know?

Alison: He's a good friend.

Emily: That's it?

Alison: Yeah.

Emily: How does he feel about that?

Alison: He understands that I have to see where things can go with Casey.

Emily: Again?

Alison: Yeah, he -- we've been talking about it.

Emily: Whoa, whoa. What about Jade?

Alison: He's dealing with that. Look, I know how you feel about me seeing Casey.

Emily: No, no, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter how -- it doesn't matter what I think. Honestly, all that matters is that you're happy.

Matt: All right, I'll serve you because it's my job. But don't expect a conversation, okay?

Casey: I'm came to apologize.

Matt: You already did. At the hospital.

Casey: I don't think you believed me.

Matt: What's the difference?

Casey: I am really sorry. You know, I was dead wrong about you.

Matt: Yeah, you were.

Casey: It's just -- there was that "M" on that note we found in Elwoodís room. And I got it in my head that it had to be you.

Matt: 'Cause, who wouldn't jump to that conclusion?

Casey: Yes, I know I shouldn't have gone there. I don't know why I did.

Matt: You don't know why, huh? Maybe, it had something to do with you wanting me out of the picture.

Casey: This has nothing to do with Alison.

Matt: Don't insult my intelligence. You want her, you thought I was in the way, next thing you know, I'm a drug dealer.

Casey: There is no way I was going to try to send you back to jail.

Matt: Is that right?

Casey: You know me better than that.

Matt: You know what I know? It doesn't matter. You're not going to get back with Alison no matter what you do.

Emily: You know, you're a big girl. Ali, you can see whoever you want to see.

Alison: I know, I just -- I know how you feel about Casey --

Emily: Felt. Felt, I'm over it, I swear. I just don't want you getting hurt again. After everything you've been through.

Alison: I wonít.

Emily: You sure? You know, you're just fighting off these drugs. And -- you're vulnerable. And you're emotional. And I don't want Casey taking advantage of that.

Alison: Well, if all he wants is sex, he has easier options than me.

Emily: Whoa, that's not what I meant.

Alison: Look, this is always going to be a touchy subject for us. I just wanted you to know, but we don't have to keep talking about it.

Emily: Okay. Okay, works for me.

Alison: Okay.

Emily: Can I give you a ride home now?

Alison: Uh, my car's here, actually. And I have some stuff to take care of.

Emily: Are you sure? You should go home and rest.

Alison: I will. But, thanks again for checking me out.

Emily: Don't thank me, okay? I love you. And if you need me, I'll be at my office.

Alison: Watch out, I might take you up on that.

Emily: Love you.

Alison: Love you.

Emily: It's me. Get your butt up to my office right now!

Carly: Hiya. Whatcha you doing?

Parker: Going out.

Carly: Where to?

Parker: It's personal.

Carly: Oh, okay, well, when will you be back?

Parker: Whenever. I'm not a prisoner yet.

Craig: Hey, Parker.

Parker: Hey.

Craig: Oh, still tension city around here, huh?

Carly: Just don't try to cheer me up, okay?

Craig: Wouldn't dream of it. It's such a lost cause.

Carly: I have a question for you.

Craig: Hit me.

Carly: It's not that I don't appreciate you bringing the kids home.

Craig: But?

Carly: How did you know where they were?

Craig: Remember, Jack asked me that same question?

Carly: Yes, you said that it was a coincidence.

Craig: But you don't believe that?

Carly: No, I donít. Come on, Craig. Just tell me the truth, okay?

Craig: What's the difference?

Carly: Well, it just bothers me that you were able to find my son when I wasnít.

Craig: Well, don't blame yourself for that.

Carly: Tell me how you knew where they were.

Craig: Lucy told me.

Casey: I liked it better when you said we weren't going to have this conversation.

Matt: I'm not going to let Alison get hurt again.

Casey: She wonít.

Matt: What's different about this time?

Casey: Me.

Matt: Right. Aren't you still doing Jade?

Casey: Matt, you're crossing the line.

Matt: I'm just trying to figure you out, I'm sorry. You're with Alison, and then you're not. You're with Jade, and then you're not. You try to get me set up, and then you're really sorry about it. I mean, do you ever think about what you do before you do it?

Casey: Are you done?

Matt: Alison deserves better than you.

Casey: Like who, huh? You?

Matt: I already saved her life. You're just trying to wreck it.

Casey: Much as I like talking to you, I have to go.

Matt: She's not going to give you another chance.

Casey: How the hell do you know what she's going to do?

Matt: She told me. She realizes it's a mistake.

Casey: She talked to you about me?

Matt: That's right. She said she's done with you, man. It's over.

Alison: Hey!

Casey: What are you doing here?

Alison: I just came to see Matt.

Casey: Well, I'll be out of your way.

Alison: Casey? Whoa, what was that?

Matt: Casey being Casey.

Carly: Why would you take credit for something Lucy did?

Craig: I just told you, didn't I?

Carly: A day late. After I treated you like some kind of hero. Why would you do that?

Craig: Because I like it when you treat me like a hero.

Carly: What is wrong with you?

Craig: You mean in terms of substance or style?

Carly: I mean in terms of the fact that have to make everything like ten times more difficult than it has to be.

Craig: I'd say that's style.

Carly: I -- I'm trying to be serious.

Craig: I already told you. I enjoy your appreciation.

Carly: I hope it was worth it.

Craig: You're not going to make a big deal out of this, are you?

Carly: Out of what? Your fundamental dishonesty which makes it impossible for me to trust you?

Craig: Well, I'd say that's pretty big.

Carly: I'm not in the mood for your jokes, Craig.

Craig: Well, is there anything I can do?

Carly: Yeah. You can go.

Alison: Well, what was Casey doing here?

Matt: I wish I knew. He came in here, he said he wanted to talk. I started talking, he freaks out, that's when he saw you, and then he's gone.

Alison: Oh, I don't get it. I thought we were getting somewhere.

Matt: Well, you never know with him from one minute to the next, right?

Alison: Yeah, I guess.

Matt: How you feeling?

Alison: Pretty good. Finally that junk is all out of my system. Now I just -- have to make sure I don't go back for more.

Matt: Hey, you're tough. You can handle it.

Alison: How about you?

Matt: I, uh, I feel better than I look, I think.

Alison: Yeah, let's hope so.

Matt: I'm glad you can joke about that after what you've been through.

Alison: Yeah, if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be doing anything at all.

Matt: Just thank God I found you in time.

Alison: Yeah. I'll never forget it.

Matt: Yeah, I don't think I will either.

Alison: Well, at least Casey apologized.

Matt: I think that was more for your sake than mine.

Alison: Well, I don't think so.

Matt: You really going to give him another chance? Why?

Alison: I just need to know if there's anything there.

Matt: Even if there is, how many chances does he get to ruin it?

Alison: Well, I don't think he will this time.

Matt: Isn't that what you thought last time? And then you saw him with Jade?

Alison: It's different now.

Matt: Is that what that whole nice, friendly greeting was about before?

Alison: I don't know. I'll have to ask him.

Matt: Can I make a suggestion?

Alison: Sure.

Matt: How about you give me a chance instead?

Alison: Matt --

Matt: Look, I know I'm not looking my best right now, okay? But I still have my charm. And my fantastic sense of humor. And let's not forget about the amazing display of physical courage I showed when I saved your life.

Alison: I haven't forgotten.

Matt: So how about this? Let's just go away for a couple of days. Separate rooms, whatever, you know? No pressure. But just -- give us a chance to get out of here, get some fresh air, you know, spend some time together. Casey'll still be here when we get back.

Alison: It sounds tempting.

Matt: Could be fun.

Alison: And maybe I do owe you something for that amazing display of physical courage.

Matt: I wasn't going to bring it up again, but since you did --

Alison: Okay. Let's do it.

Matt: Really?

Alison: Yeah, really.

Matt: All right, I'll make the plans. Meet me back here when I'm done, okay?

Jade: What's your emergency?

Emily: My sister and Casey are getting back together.

Jade: Yeah, I heard.

Emily: I paid you a lot of money to make sure that wouldn't happen.

Jade: And you got your money's worth.

Emily: That's not how I see it.

Jade: Look, I did everything I could, okay? Everything.

Emily: Well, apparently, you're not very good at it.

Jade: Oh, go to hell!

Emily: I want to know what happened, Jade.

Jade: Ask your sister. Me and Casey were fine until she decided to yank on his leash again, and he went running.

Emily: Well, why don't you stop him?

Jade: How, exactly?

Emily: I don't know, use your imagination! Or do I need to give you a lecture on what Casey likes these days?

Jade: I thought you didn't like the idea of me sleeping with him.

Emily: I donít. But desperate times call for desperate measures.

Jade: Can I just point out how sick this is?

Emily: I'll pay you double what I paid you the last time.

Jade: Double? Really?

Emily: If that's what it takes to get my sister to look someplace else.

Jade: You've got a serious problem.

Emily: Yeah, well, that's my problem. Are you going to do it or not?

Jade: You know, I'd do it for nothing. But I like getting paid.

Carly: Lucy, you busy?

Lucy: No, I just finished my rounds.

Carly: I want to thank you.

Lucy: For what?

Carly: Your father told me that you were the one who found Parker and Liberty.

Lucy: Oh, well, but he was the one who brought them back home safely.

Carly: After you tracked them down. Why would you let him take all the credit?

Lucy: I figured he needed a win.

Carly: I'm sure there was some negotiation.

Lucy: Uh, we talked. That's all.

Carly: Well, I just wanted to thank the right person, that's all.

Lucy: I'm glad he -- that your son got home safely.

Carly: Me too. So, if there's anything I can do to repay you, let me know. Okay?

Lucy: Actually, I did. I asked you to put in a good word for me with my father and -- you shut me down.

Carly: Well, I'm sorry about that. I just thought your father would resent me, if I tried to give him advice.

Lucy: Can I get you to reconsider? Because I could really still use your help patching things up with him.

Carly: Do you really think that's possible?

Lucy: Do you think that I'm crazy for hoping that it is?

Carly: What I think is that your father's extremely hard-headed about certain things. And when it comes to you, I'm not sure I can influence him at all.

Lucy: Well, that's not the answer I was hoping to hear, but I appreciate your honesty. And I'm glad you got your son back home. Enjoy every minute you get with him. You never know when it might end.

Parker: You know my parents cannot afford to send me to Eastlake. They can barely keep J.J. there. So they're using my trust fund to send me.

Liberty: So?

Parker: So there's a clause that says the funds cannot be used for a purpose that isn't conducive to the welfare of the beneficiary.

Liberty: Do I look like I went to law school, or something?

Parker: It means that the money cannot be used for anything that isn't in my best interest.

Liberty: Okay, well, who decides?

Parker: Well, my mom, since she's the trustee.

Liberty: I don't see how that fixes your problem.

Parker: Well, that's because you haven't read sub-clause six.

Liberty: Oh, how'd I miss that one?

Parker: I know, seriously. But, what it says is that I can have my attorney challenge any expenditure, and a judge has to deem it in my best interest.

Liberty: Okay, you have an attorney?

Parker: Well, I found one on Craigslist. And he'll be here any minute.

Liberty: Here? Doesn't he have an office?

Parker: You know what, if he can help me from going to boarding school, I don't care if he works out of his car!

Liberty: Do you really think he can do that?

Parker: Well, we're about to find out.

Craig: Any reason for me to say hello?

Carly: What?

Craig: Why I assumed you're still not speaking to me. So, I'm just wondering if I should waste my breath.

Carly: Do you mean I've actually discovered a way to shut you up?

Craig: That's all I needed to hear.

Carly: Okay, Craig, wait. I guess, maybe I was a little hard on you at my house.

Craig: You think? What changed your mind?

Carly: Well, you did manage to bring Parker and Liberty home safely. However you managed to locate them, you do deserve credit for that.

Craig: Humbly accepted.

Carly: Good.

Craig: But you really hurt my feelings.

Carly: Well, you lied to me.

Craig: Oh, call it what you want, but it was for a good cause.

Carly: Which was?

Craig: To score points with my beautiful business partner.

Carly: Well, you did. Despite yourself.

Craig: It's not good enough.

Carly: Excuse me?

Craig: I think you should buy me lunch.

Carly: You're not serious?

Craig: Oh, I can't think of a better way to repair the rift between us.

Carly: I didn't realize there was a rift.

Craig: All the more reason that you should take me out.

Carly: Okay, well, if you want a free lunch that badly, I have another errand to do, and then I could meet you at the Lakeview?

Craig: I'll be waiting.

[Cell phone ringing back]

[Cell phone ringing]

Lucy: Lucy Montgomery.

Carly: Hey, Lucy, it's Carly. You're on.

Lucy: What do you mean?

Carly: Well, you wanted me to help you fix things with your father. He's going to meeting me at the Lakeview in a few minutes.

Lucy: Thank you so much.

Carly: Oh, all I did was set up the ambush. The rest is up to you.

Emily: Sorry it took so long, I don't leave this kind of cash laying around.

Jade: Yeah, and I don't do business on credit.

Emily: Okay -- just make sure it gets done.

Jade: Look, I got him to sleep with me once. I can do it again.

Emily: I don't need to hear the details. Just make sure that Alison finds out about it, okay? Like the last time.

Jade: I'll do my best.

Emily: No, no, no. I'm sorry, that's not good enough.

Jade: Well, I can't give you a guarantee.

Emily: And I don't pay for maybes.

Jade: Fine, get someone else to do it.

Emily: Fine.

Jade: I'll keep you posted.

Alison: What the hell is wrong with you?

Emily: Alison. Uh, how long have you been standing there?

Alison: Long enough! How could you do that to your own sister?

Craig: I am sorry you felt I took advantage of Parker's disappearance. I just saw an opportunity to do something for you because I know your kids mean everything to you.

Carly: I understand.

Craig: You sure?

Carly: Mm-hmm. I just hope you understand that I'm doing exactly the same thing for you.

Craig: When?

Carly: Right now.

Lucy: Hi.

Craig: I can't believe you set me up.

Carly: It was the only way I could think of to get the two of you together.

Craig: Well, keep thinking because this didn't work.

Carly: No, would you sit down?

Craig: Not with her.

Carly: She's your daughter.

Craig: Is this how you repay me for finding your son?

Carly: That's right. You found him. The two of you found him together. So, build on that. End this ridiculous war you've been fighting, Craig, before somebody else you love gets hurt!

Emily: Ali, I swear, I am not trying to hurt you.

Alison: Are you insane? You know what it did to me to see Casey and Jade together the first time? How could you pay her to do it again?

Emily: I was just -- I'm looking out for you.

Alison: Oh, don't give me that crap!

Emily: What difference does it make if I paid Jade to seduce him! What matters is that -- he let her! I just -- I didn't want him to break your heart again like --

Alison: What like he broke yours?

Emily: That's not what I meant.

Alison: That's because he didn't break your heart, Emily. Mainly because you don't have one! But he does. He does and you broke his! And now that he's finally ready to move on, that he's finally over you, you can't stand that, either.

Emily: No, only because it's with you, Ali.

Alison: Well, this has nothing to do with me! This has to do with your ego. You didn't want Casey, but you don't want him to want anyone else!

Emily: That's not true. If that were true, why would I -- why would I pay -- why would I pay Jade?

Alison: Because you are sick in the head!

Emily: No, no, because I was trying to protect you!

Alison: I don't need your protection! And now that I know what you did, I'm going to make damn sure that you can't ever do it again!

Parker: I know I'm only in high school, but it sounds to me like a judge can stop them from using my money to send me to boarding school.

Mr. Shrink: If he's convinced it's not in your best interest.

Parker: It would ruin my life.

Liberty: Do you think he really has a chance?

Mr. Shrink: Well, I'll need some time to study the case law.

Parker: Well, we don't have time. I'm getting shipped out tomorrow. There must be something you can do right away.

Mr. Shrink: There is, but it could get very ugly.

Craig: You know what she did to me. And you want me to just forget that?

Carly: I do.

Craig: Well, I canít. And neither could you.

Carly: There isn't anything I wouldn't do for my children. Especially forgive them.

Craig: Really, is that why you're shipping Parker off to boarding school?

Carly: It's what's best for him.

Craig: You don't believe that.

Carly: I do. And it has nothing to do with you and Lucy!

Lucy: Carly, forget it. Thanks for trying.

Carly: No, sit down, please! You two have done horrible things to each other. Your father was devastated when you ran off with Johnny. He never stopped looking for you. But Johnny is back now because Lucy brought him home. You don't have to shut her out of his life. Or your own.

Craig: She's a liar.

Carly: Well, that's one more thing you have in common.

Craig: You know what, I really resent what you're trying to do here.

Carly: Why? Because you'd never interfere in anyone else's business?

Craig: No, Carly, because you have no right to try and force someone on me.

Lucy: Carly, you were right the first time. It's hopeless.

Carly: It is not. You're family! This is the daughter you've always adored.

Craig: Not since she hooked up with Dusty Donovan.

Carly: Okay, well, that's another ancient feud that's going to end after this one.

Craig: Oh really, don't count on it.

Lucy: He doesn't want to make peace with anyone, just --

Carly: I refuse to believe that.

Lucy: Thank you for trying. And don't worry. I won't be bothering you again.

Carly: I'm ending our partnership.

Craig: Excuse me?

Carly: I refuse to be in business with someone who can be so cruel to their own family.

Craig: What?

Carly: You heard me! I'm out!

Jade: Hey.

Casey: Hey, nothing personal, I'm just not really in the mood for company right now.

Jade: Don't you know that's exactly when you need someone to talk to.

Casey: No, that's totally not what I need.

Jade: What's wrong?

Casey: I'm not getting through to you, am I?

Jade: Friends don't let friends wallow in self-pity.

Casey: Even if that's all that friend feels like doing?

Jade: Especially. Here, talk to me.

Casey: It's nothing. It's just that my whole life sucks.

Jade: Yeah, let me guess? We're throwing this pity party because of Alison?

Casey: Yeah, I just can't figure it out. You know, when she and I had that conversation, I thought we agreed to try again.

Jade: Sure seemed that way when you blew me off for dinner.

Casey: No, I was just trying to be fair with you. It was -- you know, it was before I knew Matt saved her from Mark, and I beat the crap out of him for his troubles.

Jade: Scoring major points with the drama queen, I'm sure.

Casey: Are you having fun with this?

Jade: I'm trying to lighten the mood.

Casey: Well, try something else.

Jade: Well, last time this happened, we found a pretty nice way to deal with it. We can try that again.

Casey: Uh, I don't think this is a good idea.

Jade: Well, it feels pretty good to me.

Casey: Wait, wait -- I don't want you to think I'm using you.

Jade: I know that. I'm using you.

Casey: Oh, okay.

Alison: What kind of person are you?

[Alison pulls Jade off of Casey and slaps her face]

Casey: Alison! Alison!

Jade: She's crazy, Casey!

Alison: Well, I'm not the one who's taking money to have sex with him!

Casey: What?

Alison: Tell him how much my sister's paying you!

Jade: I don't know what you're talking about.

Alison: Oh, you're not only a dirty whore, you're a dirty liar!

Jade: Go to hell!

Casey: What are you -- what are you talking about?

Alison: Tell him! Or why don't you show him the pile of cash that you took out of Emily's office!

Jade: Well, you messed with the wrong girl --

Casey: Hey, hey, let's all chill out and figure out what's going on here!

Alison: There's nothing to figure! Emily is paying her whatever to keep us apart! She admitted it!

Casey: Is this true?

Jade: It's not the reason I'm here.

Casey: Is she paying you or not?

Jade: To do what I would've done anyway!

Casey: Are you crazy?

Jade: If she's going to pay me to do what I want to do, then why shouldn't I take it?

Casey: Listen, I think you should go.

Jade: Casey --

Casey: Get out of here! Now!

Alison: I'm sorry.

Casey: Don't be, okay?

Alison: I just -- I thought you should know. I didn't realize she would be here already.

Casey: Well, she works fast.

Alison: I guess I should go.

Casey: Wait, wait, don't go.

Craig: You're not serious.

Carly: Don't test me.

Craig: You would pull the plug on a lucrative business over this?

Carly: Oh, I would.

Craig: I don't believe you.

Carly: Then you don't know me.

Craig: Why do you even care, Carly?

Carly: I almost lost my son yesterday. So when I see somebody turn their back on their child, it just doesn't sit too well with me.

Craig: No, you can't compare your situation with Parker to mine with Lucy.

Carly: Well, you're right about that. Parker hates me. Lucy doesn't hate you. You made such a big deal about getting your son back. Well, your daughter wants you back.

Craig: It's too late for that.

Carly: It's never too late.

Craig: I'm still trying to figure out what any of this has to do with you.

Carly: Lucy asked for my help. And given what I owe her for bringing Parker home, I'm helping.

Craig: By blackmailing me. Not the best basis for a reconciliation.

Carly: Maybe not, but Lucy'll take it. And so should you.

Craig: Are you always this good at manipulating people?

Carly: Oh, I'm not nearly as good as you are. It's your choice, Craig. Work things out with your daughter or start looking for another partner.

Parker: So you're saying a judge can even remove a trustee who's not serving the best interests of the beneficiary.

Liberty: You're talking about your mother, Parker.

Parker: Yeah, I know who I'm talking about.

Liberty: Parker, you can't send your mom to court.

Parker: The only problem is, they're going to argue that everything they're doing is in my best interests.

Mr. Shink: Well, you'll have to convince the judge they're wrong.

Parker: That shouldn't be hard. They're always wrong. And I think boarding school would ruin my life.

Liberty: You're going to need better reasons than that.

Parker: Well, J.J.'s told me some horror stories.

Liberty: Hey, no, he likes it there.

Parker: Yeah, well, he won't be in court. And if the judge finds a pattern, they'll remove my mother as the trustee. The only problem is, how do we do this before they ship me off tomorrow?

Casey: Anyway, thank you for caring -- caring enough to come over.

Alison: You sound surprised.

Casey: Well, after you changed your mind about the do-over --

Alison: Who said I changed my mind?

Casey: Matt.

Alison: He did?

Casey: Wait, it's not true?

Alison: No. If anyone changed their mind, I thought it was you, when I saw you at Yo's.

Casey: No, it was because Matt had just told me you don't want anything to do with me anymore.

Alison: Okay, I think we have to stop listening to other people.

Casey: Yeah, especially to liars.

Alison: I'll deal with that. But I need something from you.

Casey: Anything.

Alison: The next time some woman just throws herself at you, don't make it so damn easy!

Casey: Listen, I thought it was over between us --

Alison: Okay, no excuses. Just donít.

Casey: I promise.

Alison: So what happens now?

Casey: The do-over.

Alison: What does that mean?

Casey: Well, I think it means we wind the clocks back to when we were having fun.

Alison: Oh, you mean, back when you'd say these really rude things to me and always make me laugh.

Casey: And you keep smacking me down and then coming on to me later.

Alison: Yeah, that was fun.

Casey: Maybe for you. No, it was fun for me, too.

Alison: Okay, so let's do it. Where do we start?

Casey: You go take care of Matt and then meet me in the park.

Lucy: What are you doing here?

Craig: I came to see you.

Lucy: Really?

Craig: Carly's right. This is -- stupid.

Lucy: Do you -- do you mean that --

Craig: Yes. You're my daughter, Lucy, and I'll always love you.

Lucy: I love you, too.

Craig: You know, you were the one pure thing in my life. When you and Johnny disappeared --

Lucy: I know, it hurt me, too -- but I thought it was best for Johnny.

Craig: Because of me.

Lucy: I hated taking him away from you.

Craig: I was out of control.

Lucy: I still loved you. We just couldn't be around you.

Craig: Well, what about now?

Lucy: You seem different.

Craig: I am. I don't expect you to take that at face value. I'll need some time to trust you again.

Lucy: Well, let's prove ourselves to each other.

Craig: That's a lot of work.

Lucy: I know.

Craig: You sure you're up to it?

Lucy: I'm sure.

Craig: Then I have to ask something of you, right up front.

Lucy: You've got conditions?

Craig: This is the only way it'll work.

Lucy: What is it?

Craig: You have to cut Dusty Donovan out of your life.

Lucy: I can't believe you're already giving me ultimatums.

Craig: Just one because this won't work any other way.

Lucy: Dusty's my friend.

Craig: You can make new ones.

Lucy: What about Johnny? You can't deny that they have connection.

Craig: Johnny is 5-years-old. By the time he turns 6, he'll forgot Dusty even existed.

Lucy: Why would you do that?

Craig: Because I don't trust him. And I have to know because he will always try to take Johnny away from me, that you won't help him.

Lucy: I would never be a part of that.

Craig: I can only be sure if I know once and for all he's out of your life. I'm sorry to make you choose, but there it is. It's Johnny and me, or him.

Lucy: Okay.

Craig: Do I have your word on that?

Lucy: Family comes first. I didn't always know that, but I do now.

Craig: Thank you.

Lucy: But can I ask you for one thing?

Craig: Of course. What?

Lucy: Don't rule out the possibility that you might one day change your mind?

Craig: Well, I wouldn't bank on it. But all right, I won't completely rule it out.

Lucy: Thank you, Daddy. Thank you. It's good to be home again.

Matt: All right, I'm almost done. Okay, just give me a few more minutes and then we'll split. I booked this really nice bed and breakfast. Where's your bag?

Alison: I can't go.

Matt: You feeling okay? They didn't release you too soon, I hope.

Alison: No, it isn't that.

Matt: It's Casey.

Alison: Why did you tell me that I changed my mind about him?

Matt: Because I thought that you should.

Alison: That wasn't your call.

Matt: I just -- I don't want to see you make the same bad decision again.

Alison: Look, I appreciate that, but Casey and I have something. And I just -- I have to find out what that is.

Matt: You'd be better off finding out about me.

Alison: I like you a lot, Matt. You know that. And I'll never forget that you saved my life. And I know that good things will happen for you.

Matt: Just not with you.

Alison: No. Not with me.

Emily: You talk to Alison?

Casey: That's right.

Emily: So would you believe me if I told you she misunderstood what she thought she heard?

Casey: Jade admitted you paid her.

Emily: What do you want?

Casey: That's what I came to ask you. You don't want to be with me, but you don't you want me to be with anybody else?

Emily: No, not necessarily anyone else.

Casey: Oh, just Alison.

Emily: Yeah, it's a little too close for comfort.

Casey: I don't get it. You dumped me, but I still want you to be happy. Why can't you feel the same way about me?

Emily: I do. I just don't want it to be with my sister.

Casey: You love her, don't you?

Emily: Of course I do.

Casey: Then why can't you understand that I might love her, too.

Emily: I do understand. But that doesn't mean I have to be happy about it.

Casey: Look, I wasn't looking to go there. Hey, you know, I know its crazy enough. It was crazy enough between you and I, but it doesn't mean it wasn't supposed to happen.

Emily: Okay. Okay, I'll back down.

Casey: That's not enough.

Emily: Well, what else do you want?

Casey: Your blessing would be good.

Emily: You're kidding, right?

Casey: No. You love your sister. You used to love me. Can't you wish the best for both of us and mean it?

Parker: So? Will the judge see you?

Mr. Shink: I'll call you as soon as we're done.

Parker: It's going to happen!

Liberty: Okay, if he can get the injunction.

Parker: Well, he said the judge won't want anyone touching the money until he can review the case. That means I'm not going!

Liberty: Do you know what your parents are going to do when they find out?

Parker: I don't care. At least I won't be at Eastlake. I'll be here with you.

Liberty: Yeah, if you can get past the guard dogs and the electric fence.

Parker: Nothing's going to stop me from seeing you.

Craig: If there's one thing I hate more than admitting I'm wrong, it's admitting I'm wrong on an empty stomach. And you still owe me lunch.

Emily: The deal's off. Okay? I want you to stay away from Casey.

Jade: Would you mind telling me why?

Emily: Well, for one thing, it keeps backfiring. So maybe, you know what, maybe we just need to let Casey and Ali spend lots of time together so they just get sick of each other.

Jade: What makes you so sure they'll come to that conclusion?

Emily: Two people in love, Jade? What else is going to happen?

Jade: God, I thought I was cynical.

Emily: Will you trust me here? Take away everyone who wants to pull them apart, and they'll be bored in like two months. You'll be able to pick off Casey like low-hanging fruit.

Jade: Not interested.

Emily: Yeah right.

Jade: Falling in love is dangerous. I'd rather take what I want when I need it.

Emily: Since when?

Jade: Since this.

Emily: Well, that's admirable. But there's only one problem.

Jade: Yeah, what's that?

Emily: With an attitude like that -- you're going to end up like me.

Jade: You don't seem so bad off.

Emily: Well, I work hard to give off that impression. And wear fabulous clothes, I might add.

Jade: So you're serious? You're done trying to break them up?

Emily: Yes, I'm done. So, you can give me my money back and I will be on my merry way.

Jade: Are you kidding? You should be giving me extra for combat pay.

Emily: The job's over, Jade.

Jade: Yeah, the job was done. I told you I couldn't give you a guarantee. And it looks like you got what you wanted, so you should stop complaining.

Emily: You're right. Fine. Keep the money.

Jade: I plan to. I'm going to buy some fabulous clothes.

Alison: Hey. Sorry I'm late. Whoa. What's this?

Casey: Um, last time we had fun together we were on these bad boys.

Alison: Yeah, I remember. Think that was the time that I beat you to the swings.

Casey: Oh, yeah -- no, I don't think so.

Alison: No? No? Well, I guess this is where our whole downward spiral began. You just can't get past it.

Casey: Yeah, but I think this is a good place to start the do-over.

Alison: Okay, you're on.

Casey: Rock on.

Alison: Wait.

Casey: For what?

Alison: For this. Okay, come on.

Casey: Yes.

Alison: Pick it up, dude. Go!

Casey: You are so going to pay!

Craig: I still can't believe that she chose me over Dusty though.

Carly: You made her chose?

Craig: Well, I told her I couldn't trust her if she was still involved with him.

Carly: Craig. How could you do that to her?

Craig: Carly, think of everyone involved here. That's the only way this would work.

Carly: And she agreed?

Craig: She swore to me that she would stop being friends with him.

Carly: Oh, boy. Well, I hope for your sake she was telling the truth.

Lucy: I think my father's going soft in his old age. Yeah, I'm his beloved daughter again. That's right. We're in business.

On the next -- "As the World Turns."

Luke: What are you so happy about?

Noah: I'm proud of you.

Lucinda: Brian.

Brian: Hello, Lucinda.

Brad: Vienna dropped an egg.

Katie: Vienna? Hi. You're ovulating?

Vienna: Yes! Yes!

Brad: Swim for it boys.

Henry: Oh, would you please --

[Tray hits the floor]

Vienna: Oh!

Henry: I'm so sorry.
