Rosanna: Hey. Good morning!

Carly: So you say.

Rosanna: Had a rough night?

Carly: Nothing a strong cup of coffee won't fix.

Rosanna: Well, I just made a fresh pot. Let me pour you a cup.

Carly: No, that's all right. I'll get it. Thank you.

Rosanna: Okay. Are you okay?

Carly: Yeah. Yeah. I'm -- I'm fine -- fine. Why -- why do you ask?

Rosanna: You don't look so good.

Carly: Well, I -- I told you I was going to be up half the night finishing my wedding dress. That's all.

[Rosanna gasps]

Rosanna: It's -- it's done?

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Rosanna: Oh, I want to see it. Can I -- can I go upstairs and just sneak a peek?

Luke: Oh, hey, Case, what's up?

Casey: Nothing. Noah not here?

Luke: No, he took the day off today. His father is being sent to a maximum-security prison this morning.

Casey: Wow. I cannot say I feel sorry for him.

Luke: Oh. No, I -- I understand, especially after what he did to your mom. I mean, I'm not going to miss the guy, either.

Casey: How's Noah doing?

Luke: He's okay. You know, he's -- he's trying to hang in there. I think he just wanted to be alone today.

Casey: Is he going to see his dad before he gets shipped out?

Luke: Oh, no. No, no, no. He doesn't want to. He just wants to put that all behind him.

Casey: I feel for him. It sucks finding out someone in your family's crazy.

Luke: Yeah, I know. And you've had some experience with that, right? I mean, with Adam -- everything he did to you and Will and Gwen.

Casey: Yeah, I guess you can never really know about some people.

Luke: Yeah. And speaking of that, what ever happened with that Riley Morgan? Did you ever find out who he really is?

Casey: No. No. I just kind of hit a dead-end.

Luke: So he's still living with your family?

Casey: Yeah, and it doesn't look like he's leaving any time soon.  

Riley: Everyone's up.

Margo: Oh, yeah. We're early risers here. So, what can I get you? I make a mean bowl of cereal.

Riley: No, I'm okay. All I need, actually, are the classifieds.

Tom: Margo put the paper over there.

Riley: Oh, thanks.

Margo: What are you looking for?

Riley: I can't keep freeloading off you guys forever. It's about time I got a job and at least tried to pay for some of the rent.

Margo: You don't have to pay us rent.

Riley: Please. I like to earn my keep.

Tom: What kind of work are you looking to do?

Riley: You know, at this point, I'll take anything.

Margo: Well, if there's anything we can do to help you, let us know.

Riley: Actually, as corny as it sounds, with everything you've done for me -- it's sort of been inspiring.

Tom: Ah. Your dream is to run a halfway house?

Riley: Well, maybe as a backup. Actually, I was looking for a career in law enforcement. Unless you think that's completely crazy.

Carly: I'll show you the dress later.

Rosanna: Why can't I see it now?

Carly: Because there -- there's still some detailing that needs to be done.

Rosanna: I thought you said it was finished.

Carly: It's mostly finished.

Rosanna: Well, okay. Okay.

Carly: It's very special to me. It's my wedding dress. I don't want anybody to see it until it's perfect.

Rosanna: I'm sure it's perfect, Carly, even if the hem isn't like --

Carly: You are worse than Sage, you know that?

Rosanna: Am I? Is that a yes?

Carly: No. It's a no.

Craig: Good morning, ladies. How's my beautiful wife-to-be?

Carly: If I see her, I'll ask her.

Craig: No need. She's as gorgeous as always.

Carly: You're in a good mood.

Craig: Why wouldn't I be? By tomorrow afternoon, we'll be husband and wife.

Carly: That's the rumor.

Craig: All of our dreams are on the verge of being realized.

Carly: The only dream I have right now is to finish this coffee.

Craig: What a romantic. So, how long will that take you?

Carly: Why?

Craig: I was hoping you'd come to the florist with me. We need to pick out our arrangements and take them over to Margoís.

Carly: Oh, no, I canít.

Craig: Oh, you don't want to leave this up to me. You could end up with carnations.

Carly: The florist wouldn't let you do that. And -- and a bouquet won't mean anything if my dress isn't finished.

Craig: Oh, I really need a woman's perspective on this.

Carly: You could go!

Rosanna: No.

Carly: Yes.

Rosanna: No. I don't think so.

Craig: Oh, come on, Carly. This is something we can do together.

Carly: No. I -- you know what? I have too much to do. Please? You have great taste. I trust your judgment. You'd really be helping me.

Rosanna: Okay. Okay. I'll do my best.

Carly: Thank you. Thank you so much. Great.

Craig: All right. Then I guess we better get going.

Rosanna: Okay. Let's do it.

Carly: Bye.

Craig: Take a deep breath. Come on, for me.

Carly: Okay.

Craig: Good. I don't want you to worry. Everything's going to be fine. There will be plenty of time for everything. Trust me.

Carly: Oh, I do.

Craig: Good. I'll call you later.

Carly: Okay.

Craig: Ready?

Rosanna: Yeah, let's go.

Craig: Okay.

Rosanna: Bye.

Carly: Have a great time.

Margo: You -- you never mentioned that you were interested in law enforcement before.

Riley: I don't know. I've just been sort of thinking about it a lot lately.

Tom: I think it would be a natural fit.

Riley: Really?

Tom: Absolutely.

Margo: Tom --

Tom: Well, with his military experience, I think the academy would be a cakewalk. Plus, he has you to help him get his feet wet.

Margo: What? You lost me.

Tom: Weren't you hinting around last night that you want to go down to the station today and check on things?

Margo: You picked up on that?

Tom: Loud and clear. So I figured that Riley could give you a lift down there and you could show him around.

Margo: Oh, I'm sure that Riley has better things to do with his day.

Riley: Actually, I donít. So, if you're up for it, a guided tour would be great.

Margo: Great.

Tom: Great. I'm going to get myself down to Lakeview, and I'll see you later.

Margo: All right. Honey, I love you.

Tom: Love you, too. See ya, Riley.

Riley: Bye.

Margo: Adam!

Riley: Mom, you can't keep calling me that.

Margo: But there's nobody else here but us.

Riley: Are you okay?

Margo: Where was all this drive and ambition a few years ago? We'd be in a much different place right now.

Riley: I know.

Margo: Well, it doesn't really matter, because it's not going to happen.

Riley: What?

Margo: No, you can't be a cop.

Riley: Why not?

Margo: Because the first thing they do is a background check, and then the truth would come out.

Riley: That Riley Morgan died in Afghanistan --

Margo: And you didnít. We can't take that risk. Adam, why don't you -- why don't you go back to music? You loved music.

Riley: No, I'm done with that. Not an option.

Margo: All right, all right. Fine.

Riley: I have to do something positive with my life. You know, worthwhile. I have so much to make up for.

Margo: Yeah, you do.

Riley: I just -- I really want you to be proud of me again.

Margo: Oh, baby, I am. I am so proud of you. I am.

Casey: As far as my mom's concerned, Riley Morgan can do no wrong.

Luke: Even though she knows he's not who he says he is?

Casey: She's made up her mind already.

Luke: Well, what did your dad say?

Casey: He doesn't know.

Luke: You haven't told him?

Casey: No. My mom asked me not to.

Luke: Are you serious?

Casey: Yes. She -- she gives me this whole speech about like how Riley deserves a second chance and we're going to be the ones that give it to him.

Luke: That's so weird.

Casey: See, yeah. If it were up to me, my dad would know already.

Luke: Well, I agree. I think he deserves to know.

Casey: Yeah. You can tell him.

Luke: Me? Oh -- no. No. No, no, no, no, no.

Casey: You already saw the picture from the V.A. You know Riley's pretending to be someone else.

Luke: Yeah, but I kind of think that this is a family thing, you know? I feel like maybe I should not get involved.

Casey: You are already involved. Riley was working with Colonel Mayer. How do you know there wasn't other people planning to kidnap Noah?

Luke: Wait. So, you think that Noah could still be in danger?

Casey: I'm not saying it's out of the question, you know? Do you really want to take that risk?

Luke: Okay.

Casey: You'll do it?

Luke: Yeah. I'm not going to take risks with Noah's safety.

Casey: Thank you. Thank you, man. Oh -- oh, you could still, uh -- meet my dad at the Lakeview right now.

Luke: Wait. You want me to do it now?

Casey: Yeah.

Luke: Okay.

Casey: Yeah. And -- and, please, remember -- don't -- don't tell my dad I sent you, 'cause if my mom finds out, she'll flip.

Luke: Don't worry. I won't mention your name.

Casey: Thank you.

Margo: Wow. What's this?

Craig: Flowers, for the wedding.

Margo: The wedding's tomorrow.

Craig: I'm trusting you not to kill these overnight.

Margo: Oh, I -- I wouldn't, you know? I'll try not to.

Craig: Do you mind if we do a little prep work?

Margo: I'm sorry. Yes. Come -- come in. Prep away.

Craig: Thank you.

Rosanna: Listen, I -- I heard about the shooting. I'm -- I'm really glad that you're okay. How are you feeling?

Margo: Oh, I am much better now. Thank you so much. And Riley -- you remember Riley. Riley is just about to drive me down to the station.

Craig: You're going back to work already? No. No, no, no. You don't want to overdo it.

Margo: Oh, you mean now that I have your wedding to host?

Craig: I'm being sincere.

Margo: Hence my look of surprise. You know what? I think being with Carly really has changed you.

Craig: Well, I hope so. It's too late to back out now.

Margo: Yeah.

Riley: Margo.

Margo: Hmm?

Riley: Sorry. We should really get going.

Margo: Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Uh, go ahead and do whatever you need to do. I won't touch anything. Make it pretty.

Craig: Bye.

Riley: Bye.

Rosanna: Goodbye. Nice to meet you.

Craig: Would it kill you to crack a smile?

Rosanna: I beg your pardon?

Craig: You're so glum.

Rosanna: Well, I'm sorry. I'm sorry I'm not festive enough for your floral arrangements.

Craig: Well, if you can't muster any fake happiness for me --

Rosanna: Trust me, Craig. I have --

Craig: -- Could you muster some for your sister?

Rosanna: Craig, I need to say something.

Craig: Don't tell me. "I don't want Carly to marry you, Craig."

Rosanna: Well, not that exactly. Um, I just feel that Carly's moods have been so extreme lately, that maybe it's a sign.

Craig: A sign? Of what?

Rosanna: Maybe she's not as into this as you are.

Craig: This is what Carly needs.

Rosanna: What does that mean? What is that supposed to mean?

Craig: It means it's time she had someone in her corner, someone who loves her unconditionally, someone who will be there for her 100%.

Rosanna: Oh, that's so selfless of you.

Craig: I understand your skepticism.

Rosanna: Do you?

Craig: But I'm in love with your sister, and that makes me want to be the kind of man that she deserves.

Rosanna: Right. Well, Margo clearly seems to think you've changed.

Craig: She's known me longer than anyone. Listen, I, uh -- I have a few more errands to run. Would you mind checking in on Carly, once you're done here?

Rosanna: Whatever I can do to help, Craig.

Craig: Thank you. See ya.

Rosanna: Bye.

Carly: There you go. Thank you. Perfect.

Saleswoman: Are you sure you don't want a hanger for that?

Carly: Oh, no. This is fine the way it is. Thanks.

[Vehicle door closes]

Rosanna: Hey!

Carly: You're back.

Rosanna: I am, and I think you'll be very happy with the flowers. Is this your dress?

Carly: Yeah. Yes, it is.

Rosanna: Oh, Carly, it's stunning. You've outdone yourself.

Carly: No, it's -- it's no big deal.

Rosanna: Oh, it's amazing. I can't believe you did this in two days.

Carly: Making a dress in two days isn't that unusual, actually.

Rosanna: I mean, this is flawless. I mean, it's -- it's so professional.

Carly: I am a designer. You don't have to sound so surprised.

Rosanna: I'm sorry. I -- I didn't mean it like that. It's just this part right here -- I mean, it's incredible. It's so detailed. You would think that it would take days -- this part -- you know, just by itself.

Carly: Right. Well, I guess that -- that's why I'm so tired today.

Rosanna: Oh.

Carly: But it's -- it's time to focus on you.

Rosanna: Me?

Carly: Yeah. Well, you're my maid of honor. I want to make you something special.

Rosanna: Oh, Carly, I -- I already told you. You don't have to do that, really.

Carly: Are you sure that you don't mind buying something?

Rosanna: I donít. I donít. I tried to find something with Parker last night, but all I came home with were shoes.

Carly: Okay. Well, thank you for being so understanding about it.

Rosanna: No, it's no problem, really.

Carly: Here. Take this.

Rosanna: Oh, no.

Carly: And get yourself something really fabulous, okay?

Rosanna: Oh, Carly, I am not taking your credit card.

Carly: Please take it. I -- I want to do this for you. I do.

Rosanna: Okay. On one condition -- you come with me.

Carly: I canít. I have way too much to do before the wedding. I canít.

Rosanna: Sweetie, you're getting married. And a couple of months ago, I never thought I'd see you again, and here we are together, and -- and I'm going to be in your wedding. It's important. Please do this for me. I -- I want to choose this -- something -- some part of the wedding -- with you.

Carly: Rosanna --

Rosanna: Come on! Just do it. I'm not going to take no for an answer.

Luke: Hey, Mr. Hughes.

Tom: Hey, Luke. And it's Tom, by the way. When you call me "Mr. Hughes," it reminds me of a time when we were both a lot younger.

Luke: Okay. Okay. How's Margo?

Tom: Actually, she great. She's home. She's out of the hospital.

Luke: Oh, that's fantastic.

Tom: Yes, we got really lucky on this one.

Luke: Yeah.

Tom: Is there something else on your mind?

Luke: Uh, yeah, but I don't really know how to say it.

Tom: Well, my advice would be to just go ahead and, you know -- put it out there.

Luke: Okay. Um, Riley Morgan, the guy living in your house --

Tom: Yeah, what about him?

Luke: He's lying to you. He's not who he says he is.

Tom: What do you mean, he's not who he says he is?

Luke: I saw a picture of the real Riley Morgan, and he looks nothing like this guy we know.

Tom: Okay. When and where did you see this photograph?

Luke: Uh, well -- I can't really tell you that.

Tom: Well, I think it's important. I mean, if it was an internet search that just pulled up some random photograph of Riley Morgan --

Luke: It wasn't an internet search.

Tom: Luke --

Luke: I'm sorry. That's all I can tell you.

Tom: Why are you coming to me with this? Why not go to Margo or the police?

Luke: Because Margo just got out of the hospital, and you know how close she's gotten to Riley recently.

Tom: Well, yeah, they are getting pretty tight.

Luke: Yeah, so I -- I didn't want to upset her, especially if it turns out to be nothing.

Tom: Only you don't think it's nothing.

Luke: No. I donít.

Rosanna: So, you ready to do some serious shopping?

Carly: Uh, you know -- why don't you go on in, and find the perfect dress and I'll come back in a bit to pay for it, okay?

Rosanna: I thought we were going to do this together?

Carly: Yeah, I -- I know, but I just realized that I -- I haven't gotten Craig a wedding present yet.

Rosanna: We can get him something afterwards.

Carly: Yeah, I know, but this is just more efficient time-wise, you know? Two birds with one stone and all that?

Rosanna: I was really looking forward to spending some time with you today.

Carly: Well, we will -- later, okay?

Rosanna: Okay. Where are you going to be, uh -- if I finish first?

Carly: The jewelry store around the corner -- I saw some men's watches in the window. I'll be there.

Rosanna: Okay. Great. I'll meet you later.

Carly: Great.

Rosanna: Okay. Have fun. Hi. I'm, uh -- looking for a dress that I could wear as a bridesmaid.

Saleswoman: Ah. We have a number of them I think you'll like. Let me show you.

Rosanna: Great. Thank you.

Saleswoman: Beautiful, isn't it?

Rosanna: "Beautiful" is not the word.

Saleswoman: I sold one exactly like it earlier this morning.

Margo: So, what do you think, huh?

Riley: Yeah. I -- I saw the memorial on the back wall to my -- to Hal. It's really nice. It says a lot about how much he meant to everyone.

Margo: Yeah. We put that up to mark the anniversary of his death.

Riley: I'm sorry I missed it.

Margo: Me too. I thought a lot about you that day.

Riley: He's on my mind all the time.

Margo: I'm sure he is.

Riley: That's part of the reason why I was hoping I could work here with you -- to continue what he started. You know, plus, the academy will be a wonderful place for me to get the structure --

Margo: No. No, no. You're going to have to find another way. We can't risk the truth coming out. We can't expose your identity. We canít.

Riley: I know. I'm sorry. I don't mean to put you in this position.

Margo: No, I don't care about me. I just want to keep you in my life. And there's my husband -- my beautiful husband. Hi.

Tom: Hi, Riley. Hi. Mind if I borrow my wife for a moment?

Riley: Not at all.

Margo: Why? What's up?

Tom: In private? Close the door, please.

Margo: What's going on?

Tom: Luke Snyder came down to see me at the Lakeview.

Margo: What did he want?

Tom: He wanted to talk to me about Riley.

Margo: About Riley?

Tom: Yeah. I don't think you're going to like what he had to say.

Margo: I'm not?

Tom: He said that he saw a photograph of Riley Morgan and the young man in that picture is not the one that's standing out there. I think we have an imposter living in our house.

Carly: Oh. Ah, fancy meeting you here.

Craig: I thought you were at home.

Carly: No, what, am -- am I not allowed out? Hey, you.

Parker: Hey.

Craig: You alone?

Carly: No, actually, I'm -- I'm with Rosanna. She's in Fashions. She's picking out a dress.

Craig: Oh. Are you going back in?

Carly: I was hoping you would. I was hoping you would go in and -- and pay for whatever she picks out. If that's okay?

Craig: Oh. Well, okay. Where will you be?

Carly: Well, I'll be getting something else.

Craig: Like what?

Carly: That is none of your business. It's a gift for you, so quit asking so many questions. You're going to ruin the surprise.

Parker: Do I really have to be here for this?

Craig: Yes, yes. Actually, you do. I need you to do me a favor.

Parker: Oh, what now?

Craig: Well, while I go in and take care of Rosanna's dress, why don't you go on this mystery errand with your mom and I'll see you both back at the house?

Carly: He doesn't have to do that.

Parker: No, no. It's cool. No big deal.

Craig: Great. This is all coming together.

Carly: Great. Let's go.

Craig: See you at home.

Rosanna: Craig.

Craig: Oh. I was just going to come in and pay for that.

Rosanna: How did you know I was here?

Craig: Oh, I -- I just ran into Carly.

Rosanna: She sent you here to pay for this?

Craig: Yeah. I thought it was a nice gesture.

Rosanna: Well, you would.

Craig: Sorry.

Rosanna: It wasn't a nice gesture, Craig. She was covering her tracks.

Craig: What are you talking about?

Rosanna: She lied to me and to you. She couldn't go in the store because she knew she'd get caught.

Craig: Caught how?

Rosanna: You know the wedding dress that she told you and told me that she was up all night making? Well, she didn't make it. She bought it -- here, this morning.

Craig: Are you sure?

Rosanna: I'm positive. I told you -- she has not been acting like herself lately, and this is just further proof.

Craig: I think you're blowing this out of proportion.

Rosanna: Really? Well, you would think that, because I think that there is something wrong with my sister. And I'm going to find out what it is, whether you like it or not.

Margo: So -- so you -- you think that Riley is masquerading as someone else?

Tom: I'm just relaying what was told to me.

Margo: But he saved my life, Tom.

Tom: He's also the reason that Mayer was in our house.

Margo: So, now you have doubts.

Tom: Well, don't you?

Margo: No. No, I donít. I think I know where this is coming from.

Tom: Really?

Margo: Yeah.

Tom: Where?

Margo: I think that Luke was talking to Casey.

Tom: Now, you can't seriously believe that.

Margo: Oh, Casey's been so hard on Riley.

Tom: Well, being hard on someone is one thing, but calling their entire identity into question -- it just doesn't seem like something Casey would do.

Margo: Well, I hope not, but it all seems so calculated. And you, of all people, would never accept an unsubstantiated claim as fact.

Tom: That's true. I wouldnít. That's why I called in a favor on the way over here.

Margo: What -- what kind of favor?

Tom: A former client works for the armed services. I asked him to go into Riley Morganís file and fax a photo.

Margo: Here? They're sending it here?

Tom: Any minute now.

Margo: Good, good. You did the right thing.

Rosanna: This is the exact same dress I saw hanging on the rack at Fashions.

Craig: And maybe Carly saw it, too, and got inspired.

Rosanna: And copied it -- the whole thing -- down to the last stitch?

Craig: That doesn't prove she didn't make this herself.

Rosanna: You are either completely blind or in total denial.

Craig: Oh, let's refrain from the name-calling, okay? What is that?

Rosanna: It's a price tag for the dress. Do you believe me now?

Craig: Rosanna, I don't care if Carly marries me wearing a burlap bag she swiped off a potato cart, as long as we get married. It's not just about the dress. The dress is -- is a symptom of a bigger problem.

Craig: You're right. There is a bigger problem, and it's called "Pressure." She's tried to do too much in too little time. She probably just doesn't want to admit that she couldn't handle it.

Rosanna: Why do you keep making excuses for her behavior?

Craig: I'm not excusing anything.

Rosanna: She lied. She lied. She told both of us that she made this dress.

Craig: For God's sake, Rosanna, it's not as if the sky is falling, all right?

Rosanna: Don't patronize me for caring about my sister. You know that this isn't like her and you bend over backwards defending her.

Craig: Yes, because I understand her.

Rosanna: Really? Is that it? Or is it because you do all the talking for her now?

Craig: What did you say?

Rosanna: You heard me. You don't think I've noticed? And the way you refuse to let her anywhere out of your sight -- that's why you asked me to move in here, isn't it? You wanted somebody to keep an eye on her when you couldn't be around.

Craig: No. I asked you to move in with her because I thought it would be good for you two to reconnect. But all you're doing now is undermining her. You're letting how you feel about me cloud your perception of my relationship with Carly.

Rosanna: How do you get up in the morning without tripping over your own ego?

Craig: Trust me, it's easy. I just keep apologizing to you over and over again for what happened that night.

Rosanna: Oh, you mean the night that you tried to kill me, because if you're going to bring it up, you might as well just call it what it is.

Craig: I've done everything I can to make amends for that. Now, you can either accept my remorse or you can hold on to your anger for the rest of your life. That's your choice. But don't take this away from Carly under the misguided belief that she'd be better off without me. Trust me. That's so far from the truth.

[Cell phone ringing]

Craig: Hello. Well, that was fast. No. No, no. I better come down and sign off on it. Yeah, I'll be right there. Bye. I have to go. Rosanna, please, let it go.

[Door opens, slams]

Margo: You know, it could be a while before your client finds that photo.

Tom: No, he said he'd send it as soon as possible.

Margo: Yeah, but he didn't give us a definite time, so why don't we just -- let's go home. And when they fax it over here, we'll have a messenger bring it to our house, okay?

Tom: Oh, five minutes is going to hurt?

[Knock on door]

Cop: Hello? This fax just came for you.

Margo: Thanks. Yeah.

Tom: Let's see. Well, that's not the Riley Morgan we know.

Margo: No, it's not, but, you know, maybe he pulled the wrong photo.

Riley: It's not the wrong photo. The guy in that picture -- that is Riley Morgan.

Tom: Well, I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but if that's Riley Morgan in that photograph, who the hell are you?

Riley: I'm -- Riley Morgan.

Tom: Well, I'm going to need a better explanation than that.

Riley: Like I told you, I was with Adam when he died.

Tom: And what does that have to do with this?

Riley: Everything. We were in the same abandoned building when the bomb went off. Adam was buried, and -- and somehow I was pulled out alive. I was horribly burned -- my face, parts of my body.

Tom: What?

Riley: I was -- I was taken to the army's burn unit, not that I remember most of it. I was there for what seemed like days. And months later, when I was finally released after the eight-millionth procedure, I was left with a new face and these.

Margo: Oh, my God.

Riley: That's why the man in the photograph looks nothing like the man who's standing in front of you.

Tom: Riley, I -- I don't know what to say. Why didn't you mention any of this before?

Riley: It seemed wrong. I mean, why should I complain? I'm alive. I thought I should just shut up and be grateful.

Tom: I know what you mean.

Riley: You do?

Tom: When I got back from Vietnam, all I could think of was my buddies -- the ones that didn't make it out of there alive. And how do you grieve for people like that when, by some chance, you made it out of there in one piece?

Riley: Yeah.

Tom: Listen, if you ever need to talk about this --

Riley: No. I -- I appreciate it. Thanks.

Tom: I'd like you to accept my apology.

Riley: There's no need to apologize.

Parker: I'll be upstairs, okay?

Carly: Okay. Oh, hey, would you put this in my room, please?

Parker: Sure.

Carly: Oh, hi. How was the shopping? Did -- did you find your dress?

Rosanna: Yeah, yeah. I -- I found my dress and -- and yours.

Carly: Mine?

Rosanna: You didn't make this dress, Carly. You -- you bought it -- at Fashions.

Carly: No, I didnít.

Rosanna: Really? Then how come I saw the exact same one when I was there?

Carly: I went in to the store, I was blocked, I -- I couldn't come up with anything. I saw the dress. I copied it.

Rosanna: You copied it, down to every last stitch?

Carly: I tried.

Rosanna: Well, then, did you -- uh -- copy the price tag, too? 'Cause, boy, that would've been a really thorough job. Why are you lying to me, Carly?

Margo: Casey, I want to talk to you.

Casey: What did I do?

Margo: You know exactly what you did. You sent Luke to talk to your father. You promised you weren't going to say anything.

Casey: And technically I didnít.

Margo: You put your brother at risk.

Casey: I wasn't the only one who knew Riley was hiding something. Luke saw the photo, too, from the V.A.

Margo: And -- and it took a gentle, little shove from you to get Luke to talk to your dad.

Casey: He was worried about Noah.

Margo: Noah is not in any danger from Riley and you know it.

Casey: Why are you so determined to protect this guy?

Margo: Why wouldn't I?

Casey: Because he's turned you into an accomplice.

Margo: Casey, he's your brother.

Casey: I don't care!

Margo: Look, he suffered in ways that you don't even know.

Casey: But he's committed crimes and many of them, Mom, and you're -- you're just helping him? That's not like you.

Margo: Will you please find a way to get along with him? Because if I have to lose him again -- just find a way.

Carly: So I bought the dress. What's the big deal? I was under a lot of pressure. I -- I couldn't come up with anything in time.

Rosanna: And you don't feel that you could just tell me that? Why in God's name did you feel like you had to lie to me?

Carly: I was embarrassed. I'm a designer. I should be able to come up with a design for my own wedding gown.

Rosanna: Honey, I -- I just don't think the dress is the real problem here.

Carly: You're imagining things, okay?

Rosanna: Am I? Because I think I've been watching pretty closely what goes on around this house -- the way Craig is constantly defending you.

Carly: That is not true.

Rosanna: Oh, come on. And when he doesn't, you overreact to the slightest word. You're just blowing up at people, lying when you don't need to.

Carly: Okay, why -- why don't you let me ask you something? Why did you bother to give me your blessing to marry Craig when it's more than obvious that you didn't mean it at all?

Rosanna: Woo, there you go.

Carly: It's more than obvious that you're trying to do everything you can to actually ruin my wedding.

Rosanna: Honey, I just want what's best for you.

Carly: What's best for me is Craig.

Rosanna: It's just so weird because he said exactly the same thing.

Carly: Why can't you see that he -- he makes me feel better about myself?

Rosanna: Since when did you need somebody else to do that for you? And since when is it that you can't talk to me and tell me what's going on? Please. Please talk to me.

[Cell phone ringing]

Rosanna: Just -- just ignore it.

Carly: No, I canít. Hello?

Craig: Any chance you could meet me at Metro?

Carly: Right now?

Rosanna: No!

Carly: Okay. I'll be there. I'm sorry. I got to go.

Rosanna: Carly --

Margo: I talked to Casey.

Riley: Well, what did he have to say for himself?

Margo: I'm worried about him.

Riley: Why?

Margo: Because he is so angry with you, Adam. If he ever tries anything like this again, I --

Riley: You know, Mom -- look, you're exhausted. Why don't you just go up and get some rest?

Margo: What, are you trying to get rid of me?

Riley: I'm trying to take care of you like you used to take care of me. So please do me a favor and go lie down.

Margo: I will. I will. I will take you up on it, thanks.

Riley: Okay. We need to talk.

Casey: What's there to talk about, bruh?

Riley: Why did you send Luke to talk to Dad?

Casey: Well, I think Dad has a right to know who you are. Adam.

Riley: It's Riley now.

Casey: Like I give a damn.

Riley: Have you ever stopped to think about what you're doing to Mom?

Casey: Well, I'm not the one making her lie for me.

Riley: I never asked her to do that.

Casey: Well, you're not making her stop, either, so --

Riley: You know what, Casey? If you have such a big problem with me, why don't you just tell Dad? Tell Dad everything and then just send me off to jail.

Casey: And -- and how great is that going to be for you, huh? So you'll -- you'll like the little victim all over again?

Riley: Well, I'm not going anywhere, Casey.

Casey: No kidding.

Riley: You know, all I want is a chance to be a part of this family again, but that seems to be up to you. So you know what? Just do me a favor and let me know when you decide.

Rosanna: Come on, candle, where are you? Ah. Gotcha.

[Rosanna finds a bottle of vodka]

Carly: What -- what is all this?

Craig: The place is closed for a private party.

Carly: I didn't okay that.

Craig: It's all right. I paid in full.

Carly: You did this?

Craig: Mm-hmm. For you.

Carly: Why?

Craig: Well, because Parker pointed something out to me, and it really hit home.

Carly: Really? What's that?

Craig: That we've both been here before -- with other people, with each other. And just because this is happening so damn fast doesn't make this time any less important.

Carly: Oh. You know, I had a similar conversation with Parker myself.

Craig: And you are important to me, Carly. Along with Johnny and Lucy, you're the most important thing in my life.

Carly: Craig --

Craig: I realized I never properly proposed to you.

Carly: Oh, that -- it doesn't matter to me. You know that.

Craig: It matters to me. Carly Tenney --

Carly: Oh!

Craig: Would you do me the honor of becoming my wife?

Craig: I know the odds seem stacked against us and a lot of people have doubts about what we're doing. I don't care about any of that, because I know we have what it takes to make it. It really is you and me against the world, kid. I promise you -- I will take care of you for the rest of our lives together. I love you. Will you marry me?

Carly: Yeah.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Carly: I am not an alcoholic!

Rosanna: Then what is this, Carly?

Parker: Where's Mom?

Craig: Don't tell me. She's waiting in the car, waiting for everyone to take their places before she comes in.

Rosanna: She didn't come with me.

[Cell phone ringing]

Driver: Are you answering that?

Carly: Does it look like I am? Just start driving.
