Teri: All right. Enjoy. Excuse me.

Rosanna: Hi.

Teri: Hey. If you're here for dinner, the salmon turned out really good.

Rosanna: Oh, thank you very much. But actually, I've already made my famous soupy vegetables and dry, crusty chicken for myself and the kids.

Teri: No, I'm sure it wasn't that bad.

Rosanna: Oh, trust me. You should ask Parker and Sage. They are the reason that I'm here, actually.

Teri: Oh, what's up?

Rosanna: Well, um, I, uh, watched them try to force down my dinner and pretend like they liked it for the very last time, and I really realized then I just -- wow, I need help.

Teri: Oh. I don't know anyone offhand.

Rosanna: Well, no, no, no. I don't want just anybody. I need you.

Teri: Okay, Rosanna, you know, I'm always happy to help, but I just --

Rosanna: Good. Okay, great.

Teri: I can't take a second job right now.

Rosanna: Look, Teri, listen. I know that I have not been the easiest on you. But I want to make it up to you, because I'm completely desperate. And Parker and Sage are really self-sufficient. They're in school right now, and they're really not a lot of work. So with your talent, I'm sure that you could do it. And I'll pay you twice your salary.

Teri: Well, that's generous.

Rosanna: Oh, so you'll do it?

Teri: No. I mean, I would if I could, but this job is taking up all my time, and I'm so glad that we're successful. But I'm, like, living in the kitchen.

Rosanna: We'll adjust to your schedule. How about that? Whatever works for you.

Teri: I really am sorry. Actually, well, I'm not really sorry. I'm glad we're doing well. But I -- I can't do it.

Craig: Do what?

Rosanna: Nothing. Nothing, okay? Thank you. Sorry. I'm going to the ladies' room. Excuse me.

Craig: What was that all about?

Teri: You got me. She said she wants me to come back and work for her, looking after the kids.

Craig: Really? That's weird.

Teri: She said she was desperate.

Craig: Well, I haven't heard any complaints from Parker -- aside from the food.

Teri: Well, I told her I was busy. So if you know anyone --

Craig: I'll let her know.

Teri: I'm gonna go back to the kitchen.

Craig: Okay. I think we should have a drink.

Rosanna: I don't think so. No.

Craig: Let's anyway.

Rosanna: Why?

Craig: So I can keep you from making a fool of yourself.

Janet: Hi, Sweetie. I'm back. We got done at the studio a little early today.

Brad: Hey, Jack.

Jack: What brings you here?

Brad: Look, I don't mean to interrupt your downtime.

Janet: That's okay. It's important.

Brad: Janet just told me that Liberty moved in with Ryan and Emily Stewart.

Jack: Apparently, yes.

Brad: We got to get her out of there.

Jack: Well, kidnapping's illegal.

Brad: We're her parents, damn it.

Jack: If she's old enough to get pregnant --

Janet: Jack --

Jack: I'm just saying.

Janet: I know, but --

Brad: Well, hold on, okay? I -- I think that the three of us go over there, and we talk to her. We tell her to come home. Don't you think she'll listen to us?

Jack: No, that's not the way to handle this.

Brad: There's no way in hell that I'm letting her be a baby-making machine for those two whack jobs.

Jack: You haven't told me your plan, have you?

Brad: What plan?

Janet: I was waiting to talk to Liberty first.

Brad: What plan? What?

Jack: He can help you convince her.

Brad: What? What did you tell him? Listen, I'm her father, okay? If you got a way of getting her out of there, I want to know about it.

Jack: This isn't just about getting her out of there.

Brad: What's it about?!

Jack: Tell him, Janet.

Janet: Okay. This is about the baby.

Brad: What about it?

Janet: We would like to raise it ourselves.

Brad: You two? That's the plan?

Jack: That's the plan.

Brad: Are you out of your minds?

Holden: Look, look, we're gonna get out of here.

Maeve: This is Skaggs' house. He's dead. No one's coming down to his root cellar!

Holden: Eb knows that we're here.

Maeve: He wants us to die!

Holden: You said that Eb wasn't a killer.

Maeve: He wouldn't care if it happened. We're dying. We're going to die. We've got to face it.

Holden: There's got to be a way out.

Maeve: There's only one way out.

Holden: Let's at least look around.

Holden: Just wish we had some more light.

Maeve: Uh, well -- I can do something positive about that. Oh!

Holden: That's a great idea.

Maeve: I dreamed about this all my life.

Holden: What's that?

Maeve: Having money to burn.

Damian: Faith, Faith, don't worry. He won't hurt you.

Eb: You sure about that?

Damian: Just let the child go, and I'll do whatever you want. I'll give you whatever you want.

Eb: How am I supposed to believe you?

Damian: You can't believe I want us all to get out of this alive?

Eb: How much did you care about that when you pushed me over that cliff?

Damian: You were pointing a gun at my son.

[Faith screams]

Damian: No.

Eb: Now it's pointed at this little lady. Difference is, this time, you're not getting in my way.

Damian: Listen, if its money you want, I have it, all you want. Just let the child go. She isn't part of this.

Eb: She is now.

Damian: No, this is between you and me.

Eb: And you're gonna shut up and do what I tell you!

Damian: Yes, I will. Just don't hurt her.

Eb: Then go get the kid's mama, now!

Lily: Damian -- Damian?

Damian: Mrs. Snyder's not here. But I have access to unlimited funds.

Eb: Stop yapping and get that woman in here, or her little brat's the first one to die.

[Faith sobs]

Damian: See? Nobody. If you want money, you have to deal with me.

Eb: And trust you, after last time?!

Damian: Last time, I -- I didn't know what you wanted.

Eb: What I want is for you to go get this kid's mama.

Damian: I'm not doing that.

Eb: Then I guess you don't care what happened to her.

[Faith screams]

Eb: Shut up!

Damian: Faith, Faith, please. Do as he says, Honey.

Eb: That's the smartest thing you said so far.

Damian: You're not gonna hurt the child, right?

Eb: I'm calling the shots here. Now, go get me the rich lady.

Damian: How many times do I have to tell you? She's not here.

Holden: It's good to see you smiling.

Maeve: I guess I got out of practice, all those years with Eb.

Holden: They're over.

Maeve: Well, I'd say so.

Holden: No, that's not what I meant. What's so funny?

Maeve: Sorry. I just --

Holden: What?

Maeve: I got this picture of Eb finding out that I found all his money, and I burned it.

Holden: All his dreams, up in smoke.

Maeve: Oh, I wish he could be here to see this.

Holden: Oh, he'd shoot us to death.

Maeve: Uh, probably. But you know, we're gonna die anyway. So at least if he were here, we'd get the last laugh.

Holden: We're not gonna die.

Maeve: I know this isn't the fairy-tale ending you expected with Lily.

Holden: Maeve --

Maeve: But we are gonna die. This is it. We have to be honest with ourselves.

Holden: Okay, listen to me. You said you'd love to see Ebís face if he saw us burning up his money. Think about his face when he sees that we get out of here.

Maeve: That would be a sight.

Holden: Then let's make it happen.

Craig: You think I don't know why you asked Teri to come back to work for you?

Rosanna: It's no secret, Craig. I told you. I -- I need help.

Craig: No, you donít.

Rosanna: What do you mean no, I don't? What, you think you know what I need better than I know?

Craig: Yes, I do.

Rosanna: Well, okay. Well, why don't you tell me, then? Why -- why did I ask Teri?

Craig: For protection.

Rosanna: From what?

Craig: From me. Go ahead and laugh all you want. We both know you're afraid you'll give into your desires.

Rosanna: My desires? My desires? What is this, a Harlequin romance novel? My desires for what, for you?

Craig: That's right.

Rosanna: Don't be so crazy.

Craig: It's not that I blame you. It was pretty amazing.

Rosanna: For you, maybe.

Craig: No, for both of us.

Rosanna: Oh, typical man. Don't flatter yourself.

Craig: Come on, admit it.

Rosanna: All right, Craig. All right. It's hopeless. I -- I, uh -- can't stop thinking about you.

Craig: I knew it.

Rosanna: The reason that I asked Teri for help was so that she could save me from myself. Because if you ever come near me again, I swear to God, I will kill you.

Brad: I don't believe this.

Janet: It's not that unusual.

Brad: You're right. It's totally nuts.

Janet: Hey!

Brad: Its nuts.

Janet: Let me explain.

Brad: What is there to explain? Besides wrecking our daughter's life, what, you want to screw with her head?

Jack: Okay, that's a little unfair.

Brad: Wait, you're gonna tell me that you're on board with this?

Jack: I am on Janet's side 100%.

Brad: Nice way not to answer the question.

Jack: Okay, you -- you know what? The two of you should discuss this by yourselves.

Janet: Sweetie, you don't have to leave, okay?

Jack: I was thinking more that you should.

Janet: Wait. You're a part of this plan.

Brad: Whether you like it or not.

Janet: Listen, this happens all of the time.

Brad: Not in my family, Janet!

Janet: Oh, right, like you Snyders have never done anything weird.

Jack: She's got a point there.

Brad: Nothing like this! I mean, have you -- have you thought this through?

Janet: Of course I have.

Brad: Okay, if we go ahead, if -- if you do this, all right, Liberty's kid will be her brother or sister and cousin, and, uh, my grandchild will be my niece or nephew, and my new kid's niece and nephew and cousin. And it hurts my head to even think about it.

Janet: Okay, all right. So it's a little unconventional.

Brad: It's unconventional?! It's Jerry Springer, Janet!

Jack: Time-out, time-out! I know this is important. I do. And I love Liberty, too. I do. But I'm really -- I had a really bad day and a -- a rotten week and a miserable month since Holden died. So if you two just wouldn't mind taking this someplace else, I'd appreciate it.

Janet: Jack --

Jack: I'm serious. Honey, please. Just go, now.

Damian: There's no one else in this house and no money. But I can write a check right now for as much as you want.

Eb: A check? Are you kidding me?

Damian: Yeah, I have it right here.

Eb: Hey, hey!

Damian: Look, we can go to the bank and cash it right now.

Eb: It's nighttime. Banks are all closed.

Damian: I'll call my banker.

Eb: No, just shut up! Shut up! I know how you rich folks live. There's cash hidden in this house somewhere, tucked away in a safe or -- or something.

Damian: That's not true.

Eb: Well, I want to hear from her!

Damian: She's not here.

Eb: One more chance. Aah!

[Faith screams]

Eb: Shut up!

Damian: Faith, no, don't! Don't!

Lily: Faith?

Holden: Hey, I found something.

Maeve: Oh, get out of here.

Holden: No, it might be enough for us to break down the door.

Maeve: Seriously?

Holden: Oh, okay, you're right. Let's not even try.

Maeve: Of course we can try.

Holden: Okay, good, good. There's the positive attitude I was talking about. It's pretty heavy. Two of us are gonna need to do this.

Maeve: I can do this. Let's go. Let's just do it. Let's get --

Holden: All right.

Maeve: Okay. Oh, gee. No.

Holden: You okay?

Maeve: No. I got it. I'm -- I'm a country girl. I'm used to heavy lifting.

Holden: I like that in a woman.

Maeve: Well, then, you've come to the right place.

Holden: All right, listen. Here's what we're gonna do. We're gonna ram it against the door, all right?

Maeve: Okay.

Holden: You ready?

Maeve: Uh-huh.

Holden: On three. One, two, three. Again. Again.

Damian: Just put the gun down, and I'll do whatever you want.

Eb: You'll do it anyway.

Damian: Of course. Just -- just don't hurt the child.

Lily: I thought I heard something.

Damian: Lily --

Lily: Faith!

Faith: Mom!

Lily: Let my daughter go.

Eb: Not here, huh?

Lily: Who are you? What do you want?

Damian: He's the man from Kentucky who said he had Holden.

Lily: Oh, my God. Is Holden alive?

Eb: I want you all to shut up!

Lily: Okay, l -- listen to me. Just let her go. Baby, it's gonna be okay. What do you want? Let her go.

Eb: Back off.

Damian: Lily --

Lily: Let her go.

Eb: I said back off!

[Damian pushes Eb and Eb hits the fireplace and goes down]

[Faith screams]

Lily: Faith, baby, run, and find Jack!

Damian: Get out of here, Lily! Aah, run!

Craig: Don't worry. You won't need any protection from me. I won't be coming anywhere near you.

Rosanna: How many times have I heard that before?

Craig: This time I mean it.

Rosanna: Oh, you're not gonna just drop by every time you get the urge?

Craig: Trust me, that urge has passed.

Rosanna: Now that you've taken liberties, you're not gonna just feel free?

Craig: "Taken liberties"? What are you, Jane Austen?

Rosanna: You know what I mean.

Craig: Yes, I do. But what about me?

Rosanna: What do you mean, what about you?

Craig: I mean, how do I know you won't come and try to have your way with me again?

Rosanna: That is so not funny.

Craig: All right, look. We both said that we'd forget about it. I have. In fact, what the hell are we even talking about?

Rosanna: Nothing, apparently.

Craig: Good. Are we done?

Rosanna: Oh, yes. We are so done.

Craig: Thank you.

Teri: What was that about?

Craig: What was what about?

Teri: You and Rosanna. You two really hate each other.

Craig: Is that what it looked like?

Teri: Are you kidding? I feel bad for Carly. Her sister and her fiancť going at it like rabid dogs all the time --

Craig: You know what? You're absolutely right.

Janet: Liberty isn't having this baby because of me. She's doing it because it's the right thing.

Brad: Come on.

Janet: Why can't you just accept that?!

Brad: Liberty already told me what her choice was. That was to end the pregnancy. You moved heaven and earth to make sure that she didn't go through with it.

Janet: I just made sure she had all the information she needed.

Brad: From priests. And from what, from Katie, who's older, married, and desperately wants to have a child? Who are you gonna get to ambush her next, huh? A -- a psychic?

Janet: Nobody is ambushing her.

Brad: You dragged her out of that clinic.

Janet: Okay. Obviously, we're never gonna see eye to eye on whether or not she should have the baby.

Brad: No, we wonít.

Janet: We should at least be on the same page about Jack and me raising it.

Brad: No, we canít.

Janet: Why are you being so pigheaded?

Brad: Because it is a terrible idea.

Janet: Why?

Brad: Have you even thought about where Liberty fits in that scenario?

Janet: Oh. Liberty is all I think about. And this was the best solution I could come up with.

Brad: Because you ruled out the better one. I can't accept it. I'm not gonna accept your so-called scenario, okay? It's ridiculous, Janet.

Janet: What?! Where are you going?

Brad: I'm done.

Janet: You're gonna tell her, aren't you? Don't you dare!

Jack: There's got to be a pencil in here someplace.

Faith: Uncle Jack, there's a man in our house with a gun!

Jack: What?

Faith: You have to come quick! Mom's still there!

Jack: Is the man still there?

Faith: I think so. He was fighting with Damian when I got out.

Jack: Okay, listen. When I leave, I want you to lock the door behind me, okay? You -- you stay put. I'm gonna call a squad car, and an officer will be here any minute, okay? Remember, lock the door!

Damian: Lily -- are you okay? Hey, Lily --

Maeve: I can't, I can't, I canít. I need a break.

Holden: Okay. All right, we'll take a break.

Maeve: Oh, my hands are cramping. Oh, shoot.

Holden: Here. Let me help. Let me see.

Maeve: Oh. Aah!

Holden: Still hurt?

Maeve: Yeah, a little.

Holden: Stretch out your fingers a little bit.

Maeve: I'm used to hard work. I think I just was squeezing that thing too hard.

Holden: How's that?

Maeve: Yeah. Nice touch.

Holden: Lily said I should have been a massage therapist.

Maeve: She was wrong. You're exactly what you should be. Holden --

Holden: Yeah.

Maeve: I need you to do something for me.

Holden: Okay.

Maeve: Make love to me.

Holden: Maeve --

Maeve: No. Please. I know what you're gonna say. Can you do it for me? Just I want to know once in my life what it's -- what it's like to make love to a good man, please.

Holden: You will. But it can't be me.

Maeve: But you're the only one here.

Holden: Maeve, when we get out of here, we're gonna meet plenty of good men. I promise you, you're gonna have a life that you've always dreamed of.

Maeve: I wish I could believe you.

Holden: Ask anyone. I never lie.

Maeve: Still, you're the only one here.

Holden: See? It's unanimous.

Maeve: Okay. Just -- let's just say we get out of here. What do we do about Eb?

Holden: Robbery, kidnapping, extortion. I'd say he's going to jail for the rest of his life.

Maeve: I helped him with the kidnapping.

Holden: It's his word against ours. We'll get a lawyer. We'll make that word stick.

Maeve: You make it sound so easy.

Holden: One thing I learned from Lily -- when you have money, anything's possible. And we have enough of it to make sure he never goes near you again.

Maeve: But you won't either.

Holden: I can't, Maeve. I'm sorry.

Maeve: Don't be sorry. I don't care how rich your wife is. If she were to lose it all tomorrow, she would still be the luckiest woman in the world. She has you.

Damian: Lily, can you hear me? Lily, answer me! Oh, thank God you're all right.

Lily: So, where is he? Oh, my God! Is he dead?! What happened?

Damian: It doesn't matter. You and Faith are both safe.

Lily: I need to call her and let her know I'm okay. Oh.

Damian: Oh, no. Stay here. I'll call 911.

Jack: Police, freeze! Drop the weapon!

Damian: Jack, its okay. It's over.

Jack: Everybody all right?

Damian: Lily is hurting.

Lily: I'm fine.

Jack: No. A -- an ambulance is on its way.

Lily: Where's Faith?

Jack: She's at the farm.

Lily: Alone?

Jack: No. I sent somebody to stay with her. Well, it's our buddy from Kentucky, huh? Turns out he wasn't dead after all. Not until now. Jenkins? Call off the code. Tell the coroner to send a wagon. So, what happened?

Damian: He got in here and grabbed Faith. He was holding a gun on her and demanding money. When Lily got out, came down from upstairs, she distracted him. And, uh, that's when I jumped him. Faith got out, was able to wrestle the gun away from him, but then he, uh -- he fell right on that poker.

Jack: Ebberly Stone. His name is Ebberly Stone.

Jenkins: CSU's on the way.

Jack: That's great. All right, I want you to stay with the body until they get here. And, uh, make sure they know that I got this out of his pocket. I'm taking the license to run it. Make sure that EMTs checks on, uh, Mrs. Snyder, okay? I'm gonna have an officer stay with Faith until, uh, they get the body out of here. I'm glad you're okay.

Lily: Thank you, Jack. I need to call Faith and let her know I'm okay.

Damian: I'll grab the phone. You're shaking.

Lily: When I think about what could have happened --

Damian: It didnít. Everything is all right. Everything's all right.

Teri: Brad?

Brad: Are you busy?

Teri: Yeah, kind of. What's up?

Brad: I need your help.

Teri: Oh, what is Janet doing now?

Brad: She wants to adopt Liberty's baby?

Teri: You're kidding.

Brad: I wish I was.

Teri: Well, what about Jack? What does he think?

Brad: Well, he's on board with it, but I get the feeling that he is not too thrilled.

Teri: What does Liberty think?

Brad: They haven't told her yet.

Teri: I thought -- I thought that those people that she was staying with are gonna adopt her baby.

Brad: Look, I don't blame Janet for not wanting that to happen. I blame her for not letting Liberty choose to do what she wanted to do in the first place.

Teri: You know, after everything that my parents put her through, you'd think --

Brad: You know, whatever the reason -- listen, whatever the reason, all right, she's about to cause our daughter some serious damage.

Teri: Listen, maybe not. You know, I mean, what if Liberty wants her mom to raise her baby?

Brad: We know what Liberty wants.

Teri: She said she changed her mind.

Brad: Janet changed her mind.

Teri: We don't know that for sure.

Brad: Yes. Yes, we do. You've been on Liberty's side from the start.

Teri: Yes, and it almost cost me my entire relationship with my sister.

Brad: Listen, I don't blame for not wanting to get in the middle, all right? But you got to -- you got to talk to Liberty. You got to be there for her. She needs you now more than ever.

Teri: Do you really think I can change Janet's mind?

Brad: You owe it to her to try.

Teri: You know, maybe I owe it to Janet to stay out of this.

Brad: You know -- listen to me, okay? This whole adoption idea came from your uncle. You brought your uncle in on this. I know -- I know that you -- you meant well, okay, all right? But since he's -- it's been worse, okay? He's made things worse. You got to talk to her, for Liberty.

Janet: What are you doing here?

Brad: Well, I'm guessing the same thing you are.

Janet: Are you on his side?

Brad: She's on Liberty's side.

Janet: Oh, really? How do we know that? Don't tell me whose side she's on.

Teri: I don't want to be in the middle of this, guys.

Brad: Well, you know what? You are, all right? And you need to convince your sister that she's not making any sense.

Craig: Hi. I'm here to see Carly Tenney.

Receptionist: Visiting hours are over, Sir.

Craig: I understand, but it's important. Urgent, in fact. It's a family crisis.

Receptionist: You've been here before. What's your name again?

Craig: Craig Montgomery.

Receptionist: I'm sorry, Sir. You're not on our approved visitors list.

Craig: T -- that's impossible. I'm her fiancť. You told her about us, didn't you?

Rosanna: I don't want to talk about it.

Craig: Did you tell her?

Rosanna: Let me go!

Janet: Why can't you see that this is the perfect solution for Liberty's problem?

Brad: Liberty already has a solution. The fact that you don't like it -- that is your problem.

Teri: Okay, what are you doing here, Janet?

Janet: I wanted you to come with me to talk to Liberty.

Teri: About this idea of you and Jack adopting her baby?

Janet: Well, Honey, she respects you. And I think it would be nice for her to hear your perspective.

Brad: What makes you so sure that she agrees with you?

Janet: Do you?

Teri: Please, just don't put me in the middle of this.

Brad: Wait. She just doesn't want to tell you how wrong you are.

Janet: Is that true?

Teri: Don't put words in my mouth.

Brad: Then tell her.

Janet: Is he right?

Teri: Janet --

Janet: Do you know what I would have given for our mother and father to offer to help me raise Liberty? No, they threw me out.

Brad: You wanted your baby. Liberty is not ready for that.

Janet: She will be.

Brad: You don't know that.

Janet: Yes, I do know that, because I am a mother, and I would have died without my baby. And once Liberty gets over being scared, she will feel the same way.

Teri: What if she never feels the same way? What if she wants to go to college or go to New York for a career?

Janet: She will. She -- she can.

Teri: Knowing that her baby is here every day of her life? How is she gonna feel about leaving.

Janet: So she won't leave.

Brad: That's what this is about. You just want to hold on to your little girl forever.

Janet: That is not true.

Brad: You think that if you have her baby, then she will never be able to leave. Am I wrong?

Teri: I am not a psychologist.

Janet: That's right. She is not a psychologist. She is my sister. And I would appreciate it if I could speak to her alone.

Brad: Fine. Fine. All right. Just don't let her convince you. She's really good at that.

Teri: Bye.

Janet: Do you believe him?

Teri: I know you don't want to hear this, but maybe he's right. Maybe this is really just all about you.

Holden: How are you feeling?

Maeve: Better.

Holden: Ready to get back to work?

Maeve: No.

Holden: We got to get out of here.

Maeve: I don't think I want to.

Holden: Why?

Maeve: Because I'm afraid I'm never gonna see you again.

Holden: I told you, I'm gonna stand by you.

Maeve: I know what you said.

Holden: Then you have to believe me. You have to trust me.

Maeve: I don't know why, but I do.

Holden: Then let's do this.

Maeve: Okay.

Holden: Just like before. On three, okay?

Maeve: Got it.

Holden: You ready?

Maeve: Uh-huh.

Holden: One, two, three. I think I felt it give a little. Let's do it again.

Maeve: Okay.

Jenkins: Ebberly Stone had a wife named Maeve.

Jack: Was she at the house when the Kentucky cops got there?

Jenkins: No sign of her. But they faxed over this photo.

Jack: Church newsletter.

Jenkins: She sang in the choir.

Jack: You know what? Let me see the stills we pulled off the security cameras at the bank when that woman showed up with the phony authorization letter from Holden. Okay. Now, you tell me that's not the same woman.

Lily: Faith!

Faith: Mom!

Lily: Oh, baby! Are you okay?

Faith: I'm fine. Are you?

Lily: Yes, I'm fine. I'm just so happy that you're here.

Faith: Mom, I was so scared. He kept saying he was gonna shoot me.

Lily: I know, baby. It's okay. He's gone, and he is never coming back.

Faith: Is he dead?

Lily: It doesn't matter.

Faith: Is he? Did Jack shoot him?

Lily: No. It happened before Jack got here. He and Damian were fighting.

Faith: Damian, did you kill him?

Damian: I was trying to keep him away from your mother, and, uh, he fell.

Faith: You saved us.

Lily: Yes, he did.

Faith: Thank you.

Damian: I'm just so grateful no one got hurt.

Lily: When I think what could have happened to you, to all of us -- but -- but it's over now. That -- that animal is gone, and we never have to think of this again.

Faith: Okay. Thank you. Thank you for saving us.

Jack: Medic said you wouldn't go to the hospital.

Lily: I'm all right, Jack.

Jack: What about you, Faith? You good?

Faith: I'm fine. I'm just a little shaky. I think I'm gonna go upstairs and lay down for a little bit.

Lily: Okay, baby. I'll be up as soon as I can.

Faith: Okay.

Jack: Tough kid.

Lily: Did you find out who that lunatic was?

Jack: His name is Ebberly Stone. He's a small-town grifter. Kentucky cops said he pulled off a bank robbery a few weeks ago with a -- a con who broke out of one of their jails. They still haven't recovered the money.

Damian: Well, if this Ebberly Stone had it, then why would he be so -- so desperate to extort it from Lily?

Jack: Stone had a wife named Maeve. She was the one who tried to pull off the whole phony letter from Holden at the bank.

Lily: They were husband and wife?

Jack: Yeah. She was up here doing the whole bank hoax thing while he was down there, doing the ransom thing.

Lily: So the handwriting on that bank letter wasn't Holden's?

Jack: They were con artists, Lily. They were profiting off your loss.

Lily: So they never had Holden at all?

Jack: Holden died in that car crash, like we thought all along.

Craig: What the hell are you doing here?

Rosanna: Can I come in?

Craig: You want to gloat over how you turned Carly against me?

Rosanna: No.

Craig: What did you say to her, anyway? That her evil fiancť seduced you, that I tied you up, drugged you? What?

Rosanna: No, I -- of course not. I --

Craig: You know, did it even occur to you that what you had to tell her was probably the worst thing she could hear right now? Well, no. You didn't think about that. Not as long as you could cover your --

Rosanna: Craig, I didn't talk to her, okay?

Craig: I saw you there.

Rosanna: Well, she wouldn't see me, so I didn't get any further than you did.

Craig: You -- you didn't talk to Carly?

Rosanna: That's right.

Craig: That's why you came here -- to tell me that?

Rosanna: Yes. I thought you should know.

Craig: Why do you care?

Rosanna: Well, I thought you should know that you were -- you were right about Teri, that the only reason that I wanted her to come back was to, um, protect me from myself and from my feelings. And that's the reason that I went to see Carly. Not -- not to tell her about us, but to remind myself that there's a very good reason that we can't be together ever again.

Craig: Thank you for being honest.

Rosanna: Why were you there?

Craig: I -- wanted to make sure Carly knew how much you and I hate each other.

Rosanna: We donít.

Craig: I know.

Rosanna: That's the problem.

Craig: I know. And I -- I guess I wanted to find out if maybe you were right all along.

Rosanna: Really? About what?

Craig: That when Carly sobers up, she'll realize it's a mistake to be with me. And if I could believe that, I wouldn't feel so bad about betraying her.

Rosanna: You don't believe that?

Craig: No. Which makes me feel so much worse, because I can't stop thinking about you.

Rosanna: We both -- we both know that it can never -- it can never happen again.

Craig: No, no. It canít.

Rosanna: Okay. Well, thank God we agree on that.

Craig: Yeah. Thank God.

Janet: What's this?

Teri: Something I learned in Italy. Try it, please.

Janet: Mm. Ooh! Strong.

Teri: Yeah. They use it to calm the nerves of hysterical mothers at weddings.

Janet: I am not hysterical.

Teri: Nobody said you were.

Janet: And I am not trying to make this about me. Nothing in my life has been about me since Liberty was born.

Teri: I believe you.

Janet: So you don't think that it would be a good idea to keep the baby in the family?

Teri: What does Jack think?

Janet: He's behind it 100%.

Teri: Of course he is. 'Cause he loves you. But if he had to be completely objective, what would he think about this plan?

Janet: It wouldn't be his first choice.

Teri: I respect your feelings on this. I really do. And maybe it's because I'm not a mom, and I'm closer in age to Liberty. But I just can't help but see it from her perspective.

Janet: She's confused.

Teri: No, she's not. She's smart. She's savvy. She has hopes and dreams for her future. And she knows that she is not ready to have a baby in her life, no matter who is raising it.

Janet: She can have it all.

Teri: She doesn't want it all. She doesn't want a baby. And if you force her to keep it in her life, you could lose her. Maybe even your husband, as well.

Brad: Hey.

Jack: What brings you back here?

Brad: I didn't make much headway with Janet.

Jack: Listen, I really hate doing this again, okay? It's been a really rough night.

Brad: I thought you'd been relaxing.

Jack: Not quite.

Brad: I just -- I need to ask you one question.

Jack: I really wish you wouldnít.

Brad: Am I right to think, you know, that you don't think much of this adoption scheme?

Jack: I really don't want to talk about it, Brad.

Brad: What's wrong?

Jack: I don't want to talk about that, either. It's Holden. I finally realized tonight that he's -- gone.

Brad: Just tonight?

Jack: I didn't want to believe it at first, but I guess it's -- its true. Holden's gone. And I don't know what I'm gonna do without him.

Holden: Do you hear that? I think we're getting close.

Maeve: I don't know.

Holden: You know what? Stand back.

Maeve: What are you gonna do?

Holden: I'm gonna try and find the weak spot.

Maeve: Holden!

[The door breaks and it lands on Holden]

Lily: I don't even want to think about what could have happened tonight. Seeing that gun -- if anything had happened to Faith, I couldn't survive.

Damian: Lily, I wasn't going to let that happen. I was ready to protect her with my life. I won't ever let you lose someone close to you again, I promise.

Lily: I don't know what I would do without you. I need you so much.

Damian: Then marry me, Lily, right now. There's nothing to hold us back anymore, nothing to stop us.

On the next "As the World Turns."

Janet: How would you feel if Jack and I adopted the baby and raised it as our own?

Emily: Jack and Janet want to steal our baby, and something tells me Mama Ciccone's not gonna let up until she gets exactly what she wants!

Damian: When will you know when it's no longer too soon?

Lily: I guess it will just feel right.

Maeve: The wall collapsed in on you, but don't you worry. I'm gonna get you out of here, Holden. Holden!
