Katie: Hey.

Henry: Hey! Hey, there's my roomie. You just missed the morning rush. What can I get you?

Katie: Oh, uh, coffee and a croissant to go, please.

Henry: Okay. You off to the studio?

Katie: Yes, a mountain of paperwork awaits me.

Henry: Ah, the life of a TV personality. So many headshots to sign, so little time.

Katie: Remember when that was all I ever wanted?

Henry: Remember? You're looking at the guy who went to some incredible -- not to mention illegal -- lengths to make that happen for you.

Katie: Yes you did, didn't you?

Henry: Mm-hmm.

Katie: Now all I want is to be a mom, and you're helping me with that, too.

Henry: I don't know if "Helping" is really the right word.

Katie: Yes, it is. You are the best, and you know it. Where's Vienna? In the back? I want to invite her for lunch today.

Henry: Uh, no, she's not, actually. She's at home.

Katie: She is? I didn't see her before I left.

Henry: Well, she's feeling a little under the weather, so I let her sleep in.

Katie: She's not feeling well?

Henry: No, it's nothing. It's just a little cold.

Katie: Vienna has a cold?

Henry: Now, it's a couple of sniffles, a sneeze or two. That's it.

Katie: Well, why didn't you say anything before you left? Brad and I are right down the hall. You could knock on the door and tell us she was sick.

Henry: She's not sick. It's a runny nose. That's all.

Katie: That is not all. Vienna is carrying our child. That is a very big deal.

[Vienna coughs]

Brad: Oh, man, Vienna. Oh --

Vienna: Oh, stop yelling. Stop yelling.

Brad: What's wrong?

Vienna: I'm sick. I got a cold.

Brad: Oh, here, here. Come on, come on, come on, come on. Over here.

[Vienna coughs]

Brad: You sit down.

Vienna: I thought that by sleeping late, I would fight it off, but now I feel worse than what I did two hours ago.

Brad: Well, I think sleeping in only works with hangovers.

Vienna: Oh.

[Doorbell rings]

Brad: Hold on.

[Vienna coughs]

Joe: Hey.

Brad: Hey, Joe, what's up? What are you doing here?

Joe: Kim wants us to start shooting today.

Brad: Oh! The reality show.

Vienna: Who's at the door?

Brad: Give me a minute. Uh, it's Joe, the cameraman. I forgot, we're supposed to start shooting today

Vienna: No, Brad. I can't be filming today. I look like a mess. Look, I'm sick, I'm sneezing.

Brad: You're pregnant, and you're beautiful. I'll get rid of him.

Vienna: I think I love you.

Brad: Listen, Vienna's not feeling very well, so I think you're gonna need to come back later. Thanks, Bro. Oh, look at you.

Vienna: I know.

Brad: I mean, is there anything I could do to make you feel better?

Vienna: Yes, there is. You can rub my chest.

Lily: Luke, I wish you wouldn't let Damian get to you like this. I know its difficult having him around --

Luke: Mom, it's not just that he's around, it's that he's everywhere. He's here, he's in Java, he's in Old Town!

Lily: I know. I feel the same way you do.

Luke: No, you donít. Because you don't see what he's doing to you.

Lily: What is he doing?

Luke: He's working you, just like he's working Noah. He wants the two of you on his side.

Lily: There are no sides here, Luke. We all want the same thing. To find whoever's responsible for what's happening --

Luke: Mom, we know who's responsible! It's Damian!

Lily: Luke! Do you really think that he would run you down with his car or hire somebody to do it? I don't think so. And now that he knows how important this foundation is to you, I can't imagine him trying to sabotage it.

Luke: Well, you know what? I'm not so sure. You know what the bigger question is? Why are you defending him?!

Lily: Because I know how much he loves you.

Luke: Mom, will you listen to yourself! Please! How much he loves me? He doesn't love me! He can't love someone like me. I don't deserve it.

Lily: You stop it right now! I love you. Your father loves you. Noah loves you --

Luke: You know, I don't want to talk about Noah right now, Mom.

Lily: You've got to try to work it out with Noah.

Luke: You know, I would try. Maybe. If I could get a hold of him. I haven't heard from him since he left here the other night.

Lily: What?

Luke: He won't return any of my calls, and -- I don't get it. I mean, I didn't think our fight was that big.

Lily: He won't stay mad at you for long. How could he?

Luke: Easily.

[Doorbell rings]

Lily: Maybe that's him right now.

Damian: Hello, Luke.

Luke: Oh, I'm so out of here.

Lily: Luke!

Damian: Let him go, Lily. I need to talk to you alone.

Zoe: Hey, Luciano!

Luke: Zoe, its Luke.

Zoe: Okay. Sorry.

Luke: No, look, I'm sorry. It's not you, I'm just -- I'm in a mood.

Zoe: I can tell. Is there anything I can supply to help take the edge off? Well, you can't blame a girl for trying.

Luke: Must run in the family. I'm pretty sure your brother said the same thing to my boyfriend.

Zoe: Zac's really sorry about the other night. We both are. Sometimes we just get carried away, you know? Cross the line? If it makes you feel any better, he's working on making up for the night as we speak. He's trying to track down this guy who will be able to figure out who's been messing with the foundation's accounts.

Luke: You think he'll get anywhere?

Zoe: Hopefully. See? He's trying to show you and Noah that his heart's in the right place. Speaking of, where's Noah?

Luke: I don't know. We're not exactly on speaking terms right now.

Zoe: Luke, what happened with Zac doesn't mean anything.

Luke: Look, Zoe, I know that! I told Noah that. I told him that Zac was just messing with him.

Zoe: And he didn't see it that way?

Luke: Lately, Noah and I don't see eye-to-eye on very much.

Zoe: Okay, so he's got some things to work out. He's taking some Noah-time. It happens, even with me and "Z," and we're more inseparable than you two.

Luke: No. Not Noah. When he gets upset about something, he likes to talk about it.

Zoe: All right. So let's make him talk. First we have to find him. You're lucky I'm good at that. Let's roll.

Damian: I just got off the phone with my jeweler in Malta.

Lily: Did he examine the ring?

Damian: Yes.

Lily: What did he say?

Damian: He confirmed it was from a set he made for the Grimaldi family years ago. Lily, those rings -- they were never duplicated.

Lily: Well, besides yours, who else in the family has one?

Damian: Luke does.

Lily: Luke?

Damian: Yes, I gave it to him myself.

Lily: You couldn't possibly think --

Damian: No, Lily, no. I know it seems --

Lily: No, no! If you're suggesting that my son put this nightmare in motion, you can just get the hell out of my house right now!

Damian: I'm not accusing Luke of anything.

Lily: It doesn't sound that way to me.

Damian: I'm just saying this is one possibility we need to consider.

Lily: You're that one that's been saying someone's targeting Luke. Now you think he just wants to make it look that way so he could get revenge on you? Luke wouldn't do that, not to you.

Damian: Not to me? You mean his father? He's never thought of me that way, Lily. He sees me as an intruder, a threat to his real family.

Lily: So he tries to implicate you in a series of crimes to drive you out of town?

Damian: Is it really so impossible?

Lily: Damian, these crimes started before we even knew you were back.

Damian: What about afterwards?

Lily: Oh, so he purposely sets out to destroy his foundation? He trashes this house? He stabs you?

Damian: I don't know.

Lily: I do. Luke is not like you, Damian.

Damian: Lily, I think our son may be more like me than you're willing to admit.

Zoe: Hey, hi. Is Noah working today?

Barista: He's supposed to be here right now.

Luke: He's late?

Barista: Try a no-show. His shift started two hours ago.

Luke: He didn't call in?

Barista: No, we called him, but he didn't pick up. So, if you see him, tell him I'm not happy.

Zoe: We'll be sure to pass that along. Thanks.

Luke: This isn't good. This is so unlike Noah. He's too responsible not to call in.

Zoe: Everybody plays hooky once in a while.

Luke: Not Noah.

Zoe: Maybe he's sick?

Luke: Well, that wouldn't explain well, that wouldn't explain why he didn't answer their call or any of mine.

Zoe: He could be like me and "Z". When we get sick, we sleep like the dead.

Luke: Well, I'm trying him again. Voicemail.

Zoe: Luke, I'm sure he's fine.

Luke: No. No, he's not. Something is very, very off.

Katie: I know if Vienna was really sick, you wouldn't leave her.

Henry: Yeah, right, I wouldnít. Otherwise, she would kill me.

Katie: It's just this baby changes everything.

Henry: I know.

Katie: And I know it probably feels like that's all any of us ever talk about or think about, but I don't want you to feel like you're not part of it.

Henry: Oh, trust me. I'm a big part of this pregnancy. Huge.

Katie: Yes, you are. And don't forget it. I know we joke about it all the time, but it's really true. What we're doing makes us a family.

Henry: Well, I don't do that great with families.

Katie: Henry, I'm serious.

Henry: So am I.

Katie: We need to learn how to embrace this part of the journey.

Henry: Really? Embrace it how?

Katie: By taking care of each other.

Henry: Okay, Mama Bear. We're in a suburb, not a commune.

Katie: I have an idea. What's your soup of the day?

Henry: Chicken noodle. Why?

Katie: I think it's about time you and I made a house call.

[Vienna coughs]

Brad: What is that?

Vienna: This is something my mother always made when we were sick.

Brad: It smells. I mean, what is it supposed to do?

Vienna: This is gonna get rid of the congestion.

Brad: It's about to get rid of my breakfast. Okay, look, why don't you just eat as much of that stuff as you need to, and I'm gonna be in the other room?

Vienna: No, this is something you're gonna rub on my chest.

Brad: [Laughing] You know what? A little warning, please. Okay? Yeah. I don't think that's a good idea.

Vienna: I'm gonna lay down, and you're gonna rub this on my chest.

Brad: Yeah, maybe we should just wait for Henry. I mean, Henry can do it or Katie. Katie could rub it on you. I mean, you know, I think we'd all be down with that.

Vienna: Brad, the sooner I can breathe, the better it is for your baby. So, why don't you just think about this as your first parental act?

Brad: Okay. Fine. I'll just do that.

[Clears throat]

Vienna: Brad?

Brad: What?

Vienna: Yeah, you're going to need to look at what you're doing.

Brad: Uh, yeah. I don't want to right now.

Vienna: Brad.

Brad: Okay. All right, just give me a minute.

[Vienna coughs]

Brad: Just give me a minute here. All right. All right.

Brad: This is -- this is wrong, Vienna. This is wrong.

Vienna: Oh, yeah. Oh, I can feel it starting to work.

Brad: Already?

Vienna: Yeah.

Brad: Mm-hmm. You know, I've been told that I have magic hands.

[Both laugh]

Katie: What are you doing?

Henry: Unbreast -- unhand her!

Brad: Katie!

Katie: What the hell is going on?

Vienna: Hey, Darling.

Brad: Okay, this is not -- this is not what -- this is not what it looks like.

Katie: What is all over your hands?

Henry: Who cares what's on the hands? Why were they all over Vienna?

Vienna: 'Cause he was helping me breathe.

Brad: I thought you were gonna be at the studio today.

Katie: Obviously.

Brad: Look, she's sick. Vienna -- she's sick.

Katie: Oh, really? So you were just warming her up with your hands?

Brad: No, it's some kind of home remedy.

Katie: No, this is a home remedy!

Brad: It was for the baby.

Katie: Oh, right. For the baby. Vienna's carrying our baby, so you get a free pass.

Brad: Katie --

Katie: Don't let me get in the way of your magical, healing hands!

Brad: Katie, Katie! Katie, come on!

Vienna: Those two, getting all worked up over nothing. Thank goodness you're not like that.

Henry: Guess again, Sweetheart.

Zoe: Luke, slow down. Where are you going?

Luke: I need to go to Noah's dorm room. I have to make sure he's all right.

[Cell phone rings]

Luke: It's Noah. Finally. Where are you?

Noah: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to worry you.

Luke: Why didn't you answer your phone?

Noah: I couldnít.

Luke: Why not?

Noah: Because I was on a plane.

Luke: A plane? You want to repeat that?

Noah: Look --

Luke: What?

Noah: The last couple days, it just really felt like we were getting on each other's nerves, you know?

Luke: We had a disagreement. It was a little -- it was a difference of opinion. I mean, that's what I thought.

Noah: I know. I just -- I think we both could use some time away from each other.

Luke: Where are you?

Noah: Lisbon.

Luke: Lisbon, as in -- as in Portugal? You got to be kidding me.

Noah: Just for a couple days. Maybe -- maybe more.

Luke: What are you doing there?

Noah: When I got back to the dorm a couple guys were there from my film class, and they said they were coming here for a festival.

Luke: So you decided to just go? Just get on that plane without calling me?

Noah: I'm -- I'm sorry.

Luke: What do you have to be sorry about? You're on vacation.

Noah: It's not a vacation. It all happened so fast. I barely had time to pack.

Luke: Gee, that must really suck for you.

Noah: Look, we were just both fighting so much over Damian.

Luke: I don't care about Damian. I care about you. Why are you doing this?

Noah: Please, don't be mad at me.

Luke: It's just -- you do this all the time. You just leave.

Noah: Damian -- he's your father, your family. I shouldn't be involved.

Luke: Noah, you're my family. And I'm yours.

Noah: It's -- you just need to figure this out on your own. I'm getting in the way.

Luke: You're not making any sense.

Noah: I have to go. They're waiting for me. I'll call you later.

Luke: Wait, Noah, don't --

Zoe: You okay?

Luke: I don't know.

Zoe: I'm sure once you guys get together and do the whole talk-it-out-thing --

Luke: We're a little too far apart for anything right now.

Zoe: You'll work this out, Luke. You and Noah are so close.

Luke: We were close. We were closer than ever. Then Damian showed up. Why does he always do this? Why does he ruin everything?

Brad: We need to have a talk, my dear.

Katie: No, you need to wash your hands. I could smell you coming from a mile away.

Brad: It's not really sexy, is it? Is it?

Katie: No.

Brad: No. You really don't believe that there's something sexual going on between me and Vienna, do you? I mean, especially not when I'm covered in this goop.

Katie: No.

Brad: All right, then what is it? I was just doing what you asked me to do -- I was taking care of her. I mean, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that why we asked them to move in to the house?

Katie: Yes, it is. I just got finished telling Henry the same thing. That's why we came by with the soup.

Brad: Okay, so? All right, so what happened between the soup and the meltdown?

Katie: I walked in, and I saw you taking care of Vienna, and it hurt.

Brad: Because?

Katie: Because it should've been me.

Brad: Well, I told Vienna, I said, you should wait and let Katie put that stuff on your --

Katie: No, it should've been me you were taking care of. Don't you get it? I want to be Vienna.

Brad: You do. You do.

Katie: I want to be pregnant with our baby. I want to have you rubbing stuff on my chest to make me breathe. I'm sorry! I'm a horrible person!

Brad: Why are you horrible?

Katie: Because she's the pregnant one, and I'm the one having a meltdown. It's not funny. It's not. She's doing this wonderful, amazingly selfless thing for us, and I'm acting like a jealous freak.

Brad: You're the mother of my child, and I wouldn't have you any other way. Don't you know that you mean more to me than anyone?

Katie: Except Vienna. It's true, Brad, at least for the next six months or so. Months, it's true. She's the one that's pregnant.

Brad: I had no idea this was hard on you.

Katie: I'm trying not to let it be. It's just so hard watching her go through all the things that I want to go through and experience, and knowing that I'm never gonna be able to feel any of those things, to feel what it's like to have your baby --

Brad: When the day comes and that doctor puts our baby in your hands, in your arms, you're gonna know. And no one's going to be able to take that away from you.

Katie: Yeah.

Brad: Okay. Is there anything that I can do?

Katie: Just tell me you love me, meltdowns and all.

Brad: Are you kidding? Meltdowns are the best part. I love you.

Katie: I love you, too.

Vienna: I'm not having this fight with you. I didn't do anything wrong.

Henry: You let Brad put his hands all over you!

Vienna: He was helping me breathing. I felt like I was suffocating.

Henry: You were smiling.

Vienna: I was happy to see you.

Henry: Yes, and in the state you were in, I'm sure Brad was happy, too.

Vienna: Okay, you're being rude and disrespectful.

Henry: I'm being disrespectful?

Vienna: Yes.

Henry: I'm being disrespectful?

Vienna: Yes!

Henry: Okay, what should I do, Sweetheart? Next time I come home and see some guy helping you breathe, what should I do? Should I hang a sock on the door?

Vienna: Why don't you put a sock in it right now? And Brad is not just some guy, okay? I'm carrying his child!

Henry: No, you're not.

Vienna: I beg your pardon?

Henry: That's not his child in there. That's mine.

Vienna: We've been over this, Henry. Yes, you got me pregnant, but this child is Katie and Brad's, and they think it's theirs.

Henry: Okay, all right. When it's born, it's all theirs. But up until then --

Vienna: Until then, what? What? You gonna pretend it's yours?

Henry: I don't have to pretend! That's my biological baby in there!

Vienna: Okay, okay. So, I'm having your baby. What does that mean?

Henry: It means -- that Brad has no right to touch you! That's right. I said it.

Vienna: Why not?

Henry: Because you don't belong to Brad! You're mine!

Vienna: Oh, oh, I see. I'm your woman. It's your baby.

Henry: That's right.

Vienna: Okay, only you don't want to be the father of your baby, do you, Henry? You know, you can't have it both ways.

Henry: Wait just a second, Vi --

[Vienna screams]

Henry: Vienna!

Damian: I am not trying to upset you, Cara. But you have to admit, in many ways, Luke is very much my son.

Lily: By birth. That's all!

Damian: You don't see my temperament in him?

Lily: No, I'm sorry, I donít. You're just looking for what you want to see.

Damian: I heard that he was expelled from school because he tried to win an election illegally. Is that true?

Lily: It was an impulsive mistake.

Damian: Really? Was it? Or was it just instinct, to win at all costs?

Lily: There was nothing honorable about what Luke did. And he'd be the first one to tell you that.

Damian: Didn't you say that he lied to the immigration authorities to protect Noah?

Lily: He did that out of love. There was a young woman's life at stake!

Damian: And how many things have I done out of love, Lily? How many questionable acts have I committed and then justified with the same excuse?

Lily: Stop it! Luke is not you!

Damian: But he is a Grimaldi. His blood is my blood. We come into the world expecting things to go our way. And when they don't, we seek the most expedient path to get what we want, Lily. That's it.

Lily: I am all too familiar with the way your family operates.

Damian: So, you're saying you don't see any of those traits in our son?

Lily: Why are you doing this?

Damian: Because I need you to help me, damn it!

Lily: By getting me to agree that our son has criminal tendencies?

Damian: By being honest with me.

Lily: All right, fine! Luke goes after what he wants. I am proud of him for that. But he is not cruel or vicious or self-destructive.

Damian: We both know that's not true.

Lily: Excuse me?

Damian: Luke has lied, cheated, and on more than one occasion, he's gotten drunk, knowing that could kill him. Isn't that self-destructive?

Lily: He was just a teenager then.

Damian: And he hasn't had a drink since? He hasn't touched a drop? Stop making excuses for him, Lily.

Lily: I am not. But I'm telling you right now, my son didn't do this.

Damian: So, you're convinced it's somebody else?

Lily: Yes.

Damian: Do you think it's me?

Lily: No. But if you pursue this, you are just gonna push Luke further away.

Damian: I don't want that.

Lily: Then trust me, please. Yes. There have been times when Luke has gotten out of control and was angry and hurt, but he's not like that anymore. Ever since he found Noah, everything's changed. He's found happiness and peace of mind, and he would never risk anything to lose that.

Damian: I believe you.

Lily: Thank you.

Luke: If you came here to ruin my life, Damian, congratulations! You did it.

Vienna: Oh --

Henry: Vienna, Sweetheart, are you okay?

Vienna: Yes, I think so.

Henry: Sit up slowly. Slowly, slowly, slowly.

Vienna: I think I slipped on something.

Henry: What? Oh, my God. Easy. Some of that stinky goop. Brad must have spilled it all over the floor. Are you all right? Are you dizzy?

Vienna: I'm fine. No, no.

Henry: Does anything hurt?

Vienna: No, just my chest and my nose.

Henry: Your nose?

Vienna: From sneezing and coughing.

Henry: Right, right, right. What about the baby?

Vienna: The baby's fine.

Henry: Are you sure?

Vienna: Yes.

Henry: Well, you never can tell. We should get you to the hospital just to be on the safe side. I don't want to take any chances with the baby.

Vienna: You don't?

Henry: No, because, like you said, Brad and Katie are counting on us, right?

Vienna: Right.

Henry: Right, okay.

[Doorbell rings]

Henry: Hello. Who are you?

Vienna: Oh, that's our cameraman for the show.

Henry: What? No. No, no, no, no. We don't have time for that. I got to get Vienna to the hospital. Come on, baby.

Vienna: All right.

Lily: Luke, Luke, calm down!

Luke: No. I want to know what you said to him. Did you threaten him? Is that why he's gone?

Lily: What? Who's gone?

Luke: Noah.

Lily: What?

Damian: What are you talking about? I didn't threaten Noah.

Luke: You went to see him, right? You wanted his "Help," right?! Right?! Answer me!

Damian: No. He came to the Lakeview. We had a good talk. He believed my efforts --

Luke: The only reason he believes anything you say is because he doesn't know you.

Damian: Luke, everything I've done is to try and help you.

Luke: To help me? To help me? And you do that by getting rid of my boyfriend?

Damian: No.

Luke: You knew we were fighting about you, so you drove a wedge between us, and it worked. You drove him away!

Lily: What are you talking about? Where's Noah?

Luke: Thanks to Damian, he's gone.

Brad: Hey.

Katie: Joe, what are you doing here?

Brad: Oh, I told you to come back, didn't I? Well, he was here earlier to start shooting for the show, but then Vienna didn't feel well, so --

Katie: Oh, yeah. Well, she's not gonna feel like doing this today. Why don't you call Kim? I'll go check on her.

Joe: Henry took her to the hospital.

Katie: What?

Henry: What?

Joe: She said she was fine, but, I mean, Henry was a little worried.

Katie: Oh, my God. What if something happened to the baby?

Brad: Wait, hold on, hold on. We don't know anything for sure. Joe?

Katie: We got to get to the hospital.

Lily: Noah's in Lisbon?

Luke: Yeah. He went to a film festival with some kids from school.

Lily: And he didn't tell you he was going?

Luke: I just heard about it when he called me.

Lily: Oh, Sweetie, I'm so sorry.

Luke: Don't be. You're not the reason he's gone.

Damian: Neither am I, Luke.

Luke: He said that he needed to leave because we were spending too much time fighting about you.

Lily: Well, Damian's not going to be an issue anymore, are you?

Damian: No.

Luke: Please.

Lily: When Noah gets back --

Luke: No, I'm not waiting for him to get back.

Lily: Wait, where are you going to do?

Luke: I'm going to find him.

Lily: Slow down.

Luke: Why?

Lily: Noah said he needed space. If you go racing off after him --

Luke: But, Mom, I love him. I can't lose him.

Lily: You wonít. He will come back to you.

Luke: How do you know?

Lily: Because you are worth coming back to.

Damian: Your mother's right.

Luke: Damian, you can just shut up. Of course you don't want me going after him. It would do away with all the hard work you put into splitting us up.

Damian: You couldn't be further from the truth, Luke.

Luke: I don't believe you. And what are you still doing here?! Noah is gone! You won! Get out!

Damian: How can you ask me to walk away when I can see how much pain you're in?

Luke: You've had plenty of practice.

Lily: Luke, that's not fair.

Luke: I don't care. You say you don't like seeing me in pain? Have you ever thought that you're the one person in my life who has caused more pain than anyone else? You ever think about that, Damian?

Lily: Luke, where are you going?

Luke: I'm going out!

Lily: You don't have to leave.

Luke: Why?! It's obvious you're not making him leave! Wow. I can't believe it. He's finally gotten to you.

Lily: That's not true.

Luke: Then why do you keep letting this man into our house after everything I've said to you, after everything Dad said to you?!

Lily: Because I don't think he's a danger to us.

Luke: He is the man that drove Noah away, and until he is gone, so am I.

Damian: I know how much Noah means to Luke. I would never try to take that away from him.

Lily: I wish I could believe that.

Damian: I talked to Noah because he has a connection to my son. I wanted to get to know him.

Lily: You wanted to get closer to Luke, and Noah was expedient. You went for it. Knowing how Luke feels about you and how much Noah means to him. You crossed the line, Damian.

Damian: I never saw it that way, but, yes, you're right. And I'm sorry.

Lily: I'm not the one you should be apologizing to.

Damian: It's going to take more than an apology to make this right.

Lily: What are you going to do?

Damian: I'm going back to Malta.

Lily: Just like that?

Damian: Not for long. I'm gonna talk to my jeweler. I want to ask him exactly how many rings he's made for the Grimaldi family and who has them.

Lily: And then you're going to come back?

Damian: No, I have one more stop to make.

Lily: Where?

Damian: Lisbon.

Lily: Oh, Damian, no.

Damian: Look, I'm gonna find Noah, and I'm gonna convince him to come back home and reconcile with Luke.

Lily: Didn't you hear what Luke was saying? Your interference is the last thing he wants.

Damian: Listen, Noah will listen to me.

Lily: Damian, you can't force them back together. If you try, you'll just make this worse.

Damian: My son's in pain, and he blames me for it. So, look, if I can do something -- anything -- to bring Luke and Noah back together, my son will see maybe that I'm not the enemy he thinks I am.

Katie: Oh, thank God. Are you okay?

Brad: What happened?

Vienna: I fell.

Henry: She slipped on some of that goop that you spilled.

Brad: Oh, Vienna, I am so sorry.

Vienna: No, donít. It's not your fault.

Henry: Actually, it sort of is.

Vienna: Henry.

Katie: Is the baby okay? Is Sven okay?

Vienna: Sven's fine.

Katie: Oh, what a relief.

Brad: You should have called us, man.

Vienna: It wasn't that serious.

Brad: Well, yeah, but think about us. We were coming home. Then we find out from the cameraman that you're in the hospital.

Henry: She said it was no big deal, all right?! Why don't you back off? She's not under house arrest!

Brad: Hey, well, no offense, Henry, but that's our baby that she's carrying around. I think we have a right to know when something's going on, when something's happened, okay?

Henry: Actually, Brad, no, you don't because --

Vienna: Henry!

Brad: Because what, Henry?

Henry: Forget it. Forget it.

Katie: What? Henry!

Brad: What the hell?

Katie: Vienna, what's wrong?

Vienna: Nothing. Nothing. Just let him go.

Brad: No, no. I can't do that.

Zoe: So, what are you going to do? Are you going to go after Noah?

Luke: I don't know. My mom doesn't think I should.

Zoe: And what do you think?

Luke: I don't want to pressure him to come back. And it's not like anything changed. Damian's still here.

Zoe: Well, you probably don't care what I think, but I say wait it out.

Luke: A couple hours ago, you were doing everything you could to help me find Noah.

Zoe: That was before we knew why he left. Look, if he needs some time to himself, it doesn't mean he doesn't love you. Look at me.

Luke: You?

Zoe: I'm totally enjoying a Zac-free day.

Luke: Yeah, but that's different. You're going to go home, and your brother's going to be there. My boyfriend's going to sleep in a completely different country. It's not the same thing.

Zoe: You could think of it this way -- you have an entire bed to yourself.

Luke: Oh, great.

Zoe: It is great. More room for me.

[Luke sighs]

Zoe: Can we not do this right now? It's really not helping me.

Zoe: Sorry.

[Cell phone rings]

Luke: It's my mom. Hi.

Lily: Oh, Luke, I'm so glad you answered. I was worried sick. The state you were in when you left --

Luke: Well, I'm not the one who should've left.

Lily: I know that. And I would really like to talk to you about that. Would you come home please?

Luke: Is he still there?

Lily: No, he left. He's going back to Malta.

Luke: Are you serious?

Lily: Yes. And so is he.

Luke: Okay, I'll see you soon.

Zoe: Ditching me?

Luke: My mom wants me to go home.

Zoe: And you're going to go? Isn't biohazard dad still there?

Luke: No. Apparently, he went back to Malta.

Zoe: For real?

Luke: Yeah.

Zoe: See? Things are already starting to turn around. Now Damian will be nowhere in sight when Noah comes home.

Luke: If Noah comes home.

Zoe: Film festivals don't last forever. But you and Noah? You guys will.

Luke: Well, thank you for saying that.

Zoe: It was worth it to see you smile.

[Both laugh]

Zoe: Damn, Noah's freaking lucky.

Luke: Bye.

Zoe: Bye.

Katie: I'm so sorry, Vienna. I know nothing's going on between you and Brad. You were just sick and have a cold, and he was taking care of you.

Vienna: Yeah. I'm sorry, too. I'm sorry, too. But Henry should never have snapped like that at Brad.

Katie: Well, I think I know why he did.

Vienna: You do?

Katie: It's the same reason I reacted the way I did. We kind of feel left out.

Vienna: Left out?

Katie: Yeah, you and Brad made this baby together, and all Henry and I can do now is just sit back and watch.

Vienna: You're right. I can't imagine how hard this must be for the two of you.

Katie: Oh, hey, listen, you're the pregnant one. I'm sure it's a lot harder on you.

Vienna: I want you to know something, Katie -- that everything I'm doing, I'm doing so I can deliver a healthy, vibrant baby for you and Brad. And that's what Henry wants, too.

Katie: And you know how beyond grateful I am to both of you. But do you think, from now on, maybe you could just include me a little more on some of the decisions you make?

Vienna: Done.

Brad: Listen, what is going on with you, man?

Henry: Go away, Brad. I don't want to talk to you right now.

Brad: No, too bad, because I'm not going anywhere. I know this isn't easy. This is a weird situation for all of us.

Henry: Well, some of us are adapting better than others.

Brad: Okay, well, you're just gonna have to accept the fact that, until my baby is born that I have a right to know everything involving Vienna. Okay?

Henry: Anything else?

Brad: Yeah. Yeah, there is. I think that I've been really nice about it, but you bite my head off all the time, and I really don't think that's making it easy for any of us.

Henry: Excuse me?

Brad: You know, look, we've talked about this, and, you know, I get it. I get it. I really do. It's got to be hard dealing with the fact that I, you know, got Vienna pregnant.

Henry: Will you listen to me, you walking monkey wrench, that is my --

Brad: Youíre what?

Henry: That is my woman, okay? Vienna is my woman, and I don't like you talking about her like that way, okay? Do you understand that? Huh?

Brad: Yeah, well, that's what I'm trying to tell you. Yes, I do respect that. But I'm asking you to respect that your woman is carrying around my baby, okay?

Henry: Okay. We'll call next time.

Brad: All right. I mean -- are we good?

Henry: You stink.

Brad: What?

Henry: Your hand -- it stinks.

Brad: Oh.

Henry: And, yes. Yeah, we're good. We're good. We're good.

Brad: Good.

Henry: Okay.

Zoe: "Z," you here?

Zac: Right here. So?

Zoe: So, things are going better than we planned. So much to tell you. First off, Luke blames Damian for chasing Noah off.

Zac: Aw, poor guy. He misses his little monster.

Zoe: Yeah, to the point where he was gonna fly all the way back to Lisbon just to get him back. Mommy had to talk him out of it. But the best part? Damian's gone.

Zac: Wait. What do you mean, gone?

Zoe: Sucker's gone all the way back to Malta.

Zac: This is better than we could have hoped for. Now nothing's gonna wreck our plans for Luke. You hear that, Monster? We're free and clear.

Noah: You leave Luke alone! Do you hear me! You leave him alone!

Katie: I'm so glad Vienna's going to be okay.

Brad: Me too.

Katie: Why didn't you offer to give them a ride home from the hospital?

Brad: Well, I think its better that Henry bring her home himself. You know, Vienna is his woman.

Katie: His woman?

Brad: Yeah, you know what I mean. You know, he wants to be the one to take care of her. I understand that.

Katie: Do you think that's why he didn't call us when she fell?

Brad: Probably. I mean, I think he just needs to feel like he's a part of this, like a certain someone else I know.

Katie: Who?

Brad: This really hot blonde chick.

Katie: Oh, I just can't wait for this part to be over.

Brad: What part?

Katie: This, right now, when our baby is close but so far away at the same time.

Brad: Okay.

Katie: I just want to hold our baby in my arms and feel him or her and know, for sure, that that little, little baby is really ours.

Henry: Hey, I talked to the doctor. You're all checked out.

Vienna: Good. I can't wait to go home.

Henry: Brad and Katie's?

Vienna: Do you have a problem with that?

Henry: You're carrying their baby.

Vienna: So, nothing has changed?

Henry: No. Nothing's changed.

Vienna: Okay.

Lily: Have you heard from Noah?

Luke: No.

Lily: He is going to come back.

Luke: I wish I could believe that. But the fact that he didn't call me before he boarded that plane, it makes me think that he's not. He's not just taking a break, he's running away.

Lily: Look, whatever Noah is going through, he needs to work this out on his own.

Luke: Great. What do I do until then?

Lily: You've got to stay strong for the both of you. And just remember that wherever he is, he loves you very, very much.

Noah: Why are you doing this? What do you want with Luke?

Zoe: You think we should tell him?

Zac: Sure. The answers are simple. Answer number one -- you'll find out.

Zoe: Answer number two -- because.

Zac: Answer number three -- you'll see.

Noah: Those aren't answers, you freaks!

Zac: Aww. You're worried about your little boyfriend, aren't you, Monster? Don't worry. As long as Luciano plays along, nobody will get hurt.

Noah: And if he doesn't?

Zoe: We're just going to assume he will.

Noah: Wait. Wait, wait, wait, wait! Where are you going? Where are you going?! What are you -- why are you doing this?! Leave Luke alone!

On the next "As the World Turns".

Alison: I looked at Casey today, and he wants me. I'm sure.

Carly: I just finished promising Parker that we weren't gonna ambush him any more.

Craig: This isn't an ambush. This is strategy. Nothing makes a kid change their mind faster than saying yes.

Jack: You think it'll work?

Craig: If you stay out of the way.
