Alison: Hi, Katie. It's Ali Stewart.
Katie: Is everything all right with the baby?
Alison: Oh, yeah. He's fine. I'm sorry. I should have said that right off the bat. The NICU supervisor says his o2 stats are way up, and he has been breathing on his own now for most of the time. I was just calling to ask if you were gonna stop by this morning before the funeral.
Katie: I'll be there.
Alison: How are you?
Margo: Hey. You want help with that tie?
Casey: Yeah. Thanks. I usually have it tied on the hanger so I can, you know, slide and fold. I was just a little distracted.
Margo: Casey, whatever's going on between the two of us, it can be put on hold. Today, it's all about Katie, okay?
Casey: I'm really sorry for what happened, Mom.
Maddie: Oh, sorry. It was open.
Maddie: Hi. I'm really sorry about Brad.
Casey: Maddie's coming with me to the funeral.
Margo: She is?
Maddie: Yeah. Brad was really great to me when I interned at WOAK, and, you know, he was just really sweet and funny. I feel so awful for Katie.
Margo: Well, my sister is devastated. So, you know what? I got to go now. I promised I'd help her get ready for the service. Nobody else from your family is coming today, are they? Good. I'll see you in church.
Rosanna: There you go. That's better.
Parker: Did you call Mom and tell her about Uncle Brad?
Rosanna: Yes. I called and left a message with her doctor, but she hasn't called me back yet.
Rosanna: Hang on. Come in!
Craig: You look good, Parker.
Parker: You know what? I can't deal with the two of you together right now.
Rosanna: Don't you need a ride to the church?
Parker: I'm going with Holden.
Rosanna: He hates me.
Craig: He'll come around.
Rosanna: He's too young to have lost so many people that he loves.
Craig: I agree, but he's a strong kid, and he loves you. And at the end of the day, he'll go to the mat for you.
Rosanna: Who's gonna go to the mat for him? Parker loved Brad. I keep trying to help him and he won't let me. And if it's this bad now, wait till Carly gets home.
Janet: I didn't hear you come in last night. Did you -- did you get any sleep at all?
Jack: I've been trying to write something for Brad's service, but everything I come up with sounds so trite.
Janet: You don't need to speak, babe.
Jack: Yes, I do.
Janet: Oh, my gosh. You guys were so handsome. The shower's free, so do you want to get up there? We don't want to be late for the service.
Jack: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Janet: Whoa. Honey, have you been drinking?
Jack: I had a couple beers. That's all.
Janet: Don't you remember what happened the last time you had a couple of beers?
Alison: You don't have a fever.
Henry: Are you sure? Maybe you should check the other ear.
Alison: They're connected to the same head, Henry.
Henry: Well, there's definitely something wrong with me, Alison.
Alison: I believe you. I mean, you took a fall, so -- could you roll up your sleeve for me?
Henry: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Alison: Have you been having any headaches lately?
Alison: Okay. Well, what is it then, your stomach? Trouble breathing?
Henry: I don't -- hallucinations.
Brad: Did you just see me?
Henry: Go away!
Brad: Are you seeing me?
Henry: Go away! Nothing! I'm just -- I'm not only seeing things, I'm hearing things, and I just want them to go away!
Maddie: The whole town hates my brother, don't they?
Casey: I wouldn't say the whole town.
Maddie: Oh, right. Just your mom and Janet's family and the Snyders.
Casey: If you don't want to go, we don't have to. People are mad at Henry and Audrey. They might take it out on you, and I understand if you don't want to deal with it.
Maddie: Do you want me to go?
Casey: Yeah, I do. I do.
Maddie: Good, 'cause I was gonna go anyway, even if you said no.
Alison: Okay, Henry. I am gonna go find the attending. Please just stay right here, and if you start to feel woozy, you can use this to call the nurse.
Brad: Henry! Look at me! Come on, man! I know you just saw me. All right. You want to play it that way, fine.
Brad: See? Come on. Was that so bad?
Henry: I don't know what you're talking about. You are not really here. You are just a residual effect of an overdone hash brown mixed with a hefty dose of abject guilt. That's all. It's nothing to worry about.
Brad: What happened? Why am I here? Why can't anybody else see me?
Henry: Simple, really. You're a Brad-shaped figment of my imagination. You are a sub-neural hematoma pressed against the worst-nightmare center of my brain. A doctor will simply drill in there, and poof. No more boo Bradley.
Brad: I'm not going anywhere.
Henry: I don't hear you. I don't see you. You're not here. You're not here. You're not here. You're not here. You're not here. You're not -- aaaaah!
Margo: I know I'm not Brad, but you can lean on us, Honey.
Craig: So, Rosanna and I will drive you over to the church.
Margo: No. I was gonna drive her to the church.
Craig: Your car's always such a mess. She shouldn't have to sit in a pile of overdue police reports.
Margo: I cleaned out my car. I wouldn't make her sit in that.
Katie: Thanks for the offer, but I called a car service. He'll be here any minute.
Margo: Honey, you really shouldn’t be alone today.
Craig: Yeah, but we were just being stupid. You can ride with whoever you want.
Katie: I want to ride alone. I have to learn how to get along on my own anyway. I might as well start now.
Margo: Well, you don't have to be sociable, but you shouldn't --
Katie: Margo, I've made up my mind, okay? Besides, I'm gonna go see the baby on the way, and I'm not gonna be alone. Brad will be with me.
Henry: [Singing] I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee I'm going to Louisiana my true love for to see.
Henry: Oh, Susanna, don't you cry for me!
Brad: Henry, that's really annoying.
[Henry continues singing]
Brad: Do you want them to throw you in the psych ward?
Henry: Yes, throw me in the psych ward, please, if that would make you disappear! They can throw me into the padded room and they can dose me to the gills!
Brad: Do what you want, but I'm not leaving.
Alison: Henry, I am so sorry. The doctor just got called in to the E.R., but he'll be here as soon as he can, okay?
Henry: That's okay. Don't even worry about it. It's not a really big deal. I'm fine.
Alison: Well, I'm sure you will be eventually, but for right now you need to stay here, okay? We cannot play around with a head injury.
Henry: I'm a bit of a hypochondriac, you know, and it's flaring up right now, and I'm sorry to waste your time. You are great. You're a great nurse. You're a regular Flo Nightingale. I'm gonna tell the boss that.
Alison: Okay, please don't go.
Henry: You don't want the likes of me haunting the hospital.
Alison: I'm worried about Katie. She's not spending much time with the baby.
Henry: What do you mean, "Not much time," by --
Alison: I mean, she's barely here at all.
Henry: Aren't there rules about preemies and seeing preemies?
Alison: Well, it depends, but Katie's baby is doing great. I mean, she could spend all the time with him that she wants to. She was even offered a bed, you know, so she could stick close by to him, and she said no.
Henry: That doesn't sound like Bubbles.
Alison: She hasn't even named him yet.
Henry: Look, I don't know if she'll see me, but I'll do what I can.
Alison: Okay. I mean, I'll go and hold him, but it's not the same thing. He needs his mother.
Brad: We're going to see Katie right now.
Jack: That was low.
Janet: I'm sorry.
Jack: Are you? Or do you honestly think that if I'd been stone-cold sober my brother would still be alive?
Janet: I don't know. I don't know.
Jack: Neither do I.
Janet: Jack, I didn't mean to come down on you so hard. It's just that I'm worried about you and, you know, if we're gonna get through this, we got to do it together, but I feel like you're off somewhere by yourself.
Jack: I'm just trying to come up with the right way to say good-bye to my brother.
Janet: I don't think there is a right way.
Jack: Well, I owe it to him to try.
Janet: This isn't about the speech, and we both know it. I'm sorry if I made it sound like your drinking is the reason Brad got shot.
Liberty: Oh, my God. The night my dad got shot you were drunk?
Janet: Liberty, calm down.
Liberty: Answer the question. Were you drunk when you shot my dad?
Janet: What happened to your father was an accident.
Liberty: Was it?
Janet: Of course!
Liberty: Oh, it's like the kind of accident where you chug a bottle of vodka, get behind the wheel of a car, and then accidentally hit somebody.
Janet: Jack wasn't drunk.
Jack: It's okay.
Janet: No. You lost your brother.
Liberty: He wasn't lost! He was shot trying to save his baby and his wife!
Janet: That's enough.
Jack: Let her say what she has to say. She has every right.
Liberty: Nothing to say. My dad's dead. Have another beer.
Jack: Go after her.
Janet: I'll meet you at the church.
Craig: We shouldn't have left Katie alone.
Rosanna: It's okay. You know, it's what she wanted.
Craig: I'm not so sure.
Rosanna: Listen, you know, she'll be all right. It's not gonna be easy. She just needs time. She'll bounce back.
Craig: Not everybody bounces back. She and Brad were so excited about the baby. Everything ahead of them and full of hope. And then their whole future just disappeared.
Craig: Stolen from them, just like that.
Rosanna: That's why when I woke up in the hospital, I swore I wouldn't waste another minute. Life is really short, you know?
Craig: Whatever you're thinking, it's all true.
Maddie: Hi, Alison.
Alison: I'm sorry about Brad.
Casey: Yes, thanks. It really sucks.
Alison: I came straight from work. I was worried that I was gonna be late, but we're practically the first ones.
Casey: Yeah. I don't know how these funeral things are supposed to go. Do they usually start late?
Maddie: People put off coming till the last minute, you know, like they can put off saying good-bye.
Casey: Do you want to sit?
Maddie: Yeah. Alison, why don't you sit with us?
Casey: Yeah. Ali, come join us, you know? Today's gonna be hard enough.
Henry: No, no, no!
Brad: You got to do something! Katie's in trouble, Henry!
Henry: I will only make matters worse!
Brad: Will you stop thinking of yourself? I got to get to my wife. I don't know how, so you have to help me.
Henry: Do you not understand why this happens since you -- Katie hates me! She blames me for your death!
Brad: Yeah, I'm pretty ticked off about that, too, but this is an emergency.
Henry: Would you listen to me, you figment, all right? I can't fix this! You're dead because I was money hungry. I lied. I cheated. I broke all Ten Commandments. I'm a rotten person, so just get back into my subconscious and haunt me the normal way!
Brad: The normal way?
Henry: Yes! Drive me to drink or gamble or whatever!
Brad: Will you just shut up?
Henry: Bradley, be gone! Oh, my God.
Brad: Seriously, man, I don't like this any more than you do, but for some reason, we're linked!
Brad: You're the only person that can see me, so, obviously, you're supposed to help me.
Henry: Even if I believe in you, I can't help you. Katie will not talk to me!
Brad: Just try.
Henry: I can't face her, Brad!
Brad: Will you just man up? You need proof that I'm real?
Henry: You're not gonna do something scary, are you?
Brad: Okay, look. I went to the farm last week and Meg was gonna give us some, like, newborn stuff of Eliza's. Okay, and I found an old school box of stuff when Jack and I were kids -- drawings, a compass, and an old notebook. I brought it home with me. I need you to find it and give it to Katie.
Henry: No, no, no, no, no! Forget it! No!
Brad: You can't say no to me, man! You owe me! It's the least you could do.
Holden: Brad would want you there. He loved you, Jack.
Jack: What I did --
Holden: What you did, you know what? That's -- that's not important today. What's important is honoring Brad.
Jack: I don't know what to say, Holden.
Holden: Just speak from your heart. Talk about what he meant to you. Talk about how proud you were of him.
Jack: You think he knew?
Holden: He did.
Jack: Why don't you go to the church. I'm gonna get dressed. I'll meet you over there, okay?
Henry: Katie, listen. I have -- no, no! Ow!
Katie: Henry, leave!
Henry: No. Not until you hear me out.
Katie: No! I don't want to ever see you again, ever!
Henry: Fine, fine! You can avoid me for eternity, Katie, but you cannot avoid your baby.
Katie: How many times do I have to say it? I don't want you here!
Henry: Listen, I won't stay long.
Katie: No, you won't stay at all! I have to get to the church to bury my husband!
Henry: Listen to me, listen to me. I heard you haven't been visiting the baby at the hospital.
Katie: Who told you that?
Henry: Is it true you have not even named him yet?
Katie: That is none of your business.
Henry: Maybe it's not my -- have you thought about what Brad would want?
Katie: Brad would want to hold his newborn child! He would want to tuck him in at night! He would want to tell him all the dreams we had for his future!
Henry: You can still have those dreams!
Katie: No, I can't! Not without Brad!
Henry: Listen, baby, I wish I could bring him back, Bubbles. I wish I could --
Katie: Don't -- don't you call me that ever again! I don't want you in my life!
Henry: I'm sorry! I am sorry! Just for Brad's sake, please!
Katie: Brad is dead and you're alive! What is so wrong with God that he got everything so messed up?
Henry: It's not -- it's not God's fault, okay? It's my fault. It's all -- it's completely my fault.
Katie: Well, at least we agree on something. If you don't leave now, I'm gonna call the police.
Henry: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my god. I think I'm having a panic attack.
Katie: Too bad!
Henry: Katie, listen. Listen, all I wanted to do was help you. Please, you got to understand --
Katie: Oh, my God. Brad.
Margo: When I saw the two of you together the other day, I thought, "Well, I'm imagining things."
Craig: I know it's unconventional.
Margo: What? The part where you're engaged to her sister or the part where you were accused of trying to kill her?
Rosanna: You're not exactly telling us anything we don't already know.
Margo: You're okay with this?
Rosanna: Well, I wasn't at first. I tried to push Craig away. But, you know, now we're here, okay? We're together, and we're not gonna apologize for that.
Margo: I guess it is serious.
Craig: We wouldn't be here if it weren't.
Maddie: I'm worried about Henry. He should be here.
Alison: Well, actually, I ran in to Henry at the hospital earlier.
Maddie: Was he all right?
Alison: I'm not really sure. He came in complaining about hallucinations and then all of a sudden he said that he made it all up and ran out before the doctor could examine him.
Maddie: And you just let him go?
Alison: I couldn't keep him there against his will. I warned him to be careful. Head injuries are --
Maddie: Are dangerous, yeah. I know. I'm gonna go find him.
Alison: I should just go find another seat.
Casey: No, no. Hey. She's just upset about her brother. She didn't mean to take it out on you.
Alison: If you say so.
Casey: Mom, you made it. Is Katie okay?
Margo: No, she's not, but she wanted to be alone, so -- I'm glad you're here, Alison. It'll mean a lot to my sister.
Alison: Of course.
Casey: I just -- I have the feeling my mom's gonna invite you to dinner, whether we're together or not.
Alison: Now all of a sudden she likes me. Go figure.
Casey: I know. Talk about bad timing.
Alison: So, how's school?
Casey: Don't faint or anything, but I'm actually doing great.
Alison: That's awesome. I knew you had it in you.
Casey: I doubt it, but thank you, Alison. Thank you.
[Knock on door]
Henry: Where are the Ghostbusters when you need them?
Maddie: Hey, big brother.
Henry: Hey, Maddie. What are you doing here?
Maddie: So, are you not planning on going to the funeral?
Henry: No. I can't. I couldn't. It wouldn't be right.
Maddie: Henry, Brad was your friend. You're gonna regret this forever if you don't go.
Henry: Honey, Katie won't even look at me. I'd only make things worse.
Maddie: How could you possibly make things worse?
Henry: Trust me, they can always get worse.
Maddie: Henry, you can't run from this. You have to show Katie how much you care about her and the baby and how sorry you are.
Henry: Look, I'm not safe to be around, okay?
Maddie: I can't believe what I'm hearing. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and do what you need to do.
Henry: You don't understand.
Maddie: Oh, no. I do understand, believe me. You messed up. But you know what? If you want to trace this back to the beginning, where it all started, it goes back to Mom, as usual. So, you know what we do? So what? We'll rise above it.
Henry: Yeah, Sweetie, not this time.
Maddie: Depends on whether or not you have the nerve to show your face at Brad's funeral. I will go with you.
Henry: I appreciate the thought.
Maddie: Henry, please. I am begging you. I know this is not gonna be easy, but if you bail on this, we'll never make this right.
Katie: You're so tiny and so perfect. I'm sorry I haven't been here. It's not that I haven't wanted to, but, oh, every time I look at you, I see your father, and it makes me miss him so much. And that's just too much for you. It's too much sadness. I'm sorry. Oh, gosh. You look just like him. That beautiful thing you just did with your mouth, that is Brad. He would be so proud. It's not fair that he never got to meet you. And I never got to say good-bye, and I don't want to say good-bye. Everybody's waiting for me at the church, but I don't want to go. I don't want to do it. So, they're just gonna have to wait, because I am not ready. Oh, my God! I love you! I love you so much! Help me!
Liberty: Mom, hey. Wait. I really don't know if I can do this, okay?
Janet: We have to, Honey. Come on. It's okay. They're waiting for us.
Liberty: I know. And they're all just gonna be staring at me with their sad faces, and I don't want their sympathy, you know. I just -- I just want my dad back.
Janet: So do I.
Liberty: Hey, do you think that there's something else we can do instead, another way to say good-bye without so many people?
Janet: Yeah, sure. We can do that, the two of us, later on, but right now, a funeral, it's important, you know? It makes things seem more real.
Liberty: Yeah. I don't really want it to seem real right now.
Janet: I know, Sweetheart, but as long as we have each other, we can get through this, okay? We'll get through it together. It's important. We owe it to your dad.
Liberty: Mom, I'm gonna say something, and don't freak out. I'll go in, but I just can't sit next to Jack. Not now.
Brad: I am so dead. I left the gate open again!
Jack: Where's Astro?
Brad: My life is over and you're going to eat?
Jack: Astro loves sausages. We can use it for bait.
Brad: No way, Jack. We'll be grounded for life.
Jack: I was gonna use my allowance money for hockey skates, but I'll use it to pay the butcher instead. You got to promise you'll never do this again.
Brad: You're always looking out for me, bro.
Jack: Not always.
Margo: Hi, Honey. Come on.
Craig: How's the baby?
Katie: He looks just like his daddy.
Margo: You know what? We're gonna tell him all about his daddy. Don't you worry.
Katie: Yeah. Oh, hey, Sweetie. How you doing?
Liberty: I just miss him so much.
Katie: I know. Me too. I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry.
Henry: I knew it. I shouldn't be here.
Maddie: Henry, these people are your family. Katie loves you more than Mom ever could.
Henry: A thug hitting me up for my wallet could love me more than that. So what?
Maddie: If you were Katie, what would you do?
Henry: I can't imagine. Poor Bubbles.
Maddie: So we're staying?
Henry: Yeah. As long as we don't sit in the front.
Preacher: Excuse me. Mrs. Snyder, are we ready to begin?
Janet: Brad's brother isn't here yet. We can't start without him. Holden, have you heard from Jack?
Holden: He said he was gonna meet us here, but -- well, he should have been here by now. He left me a few messages, but --
Liberty: Maybe he decided he couldn't handle it.
Janet: No. He'll be here. He's not answering.
Preacher: Katie, would you like us to wait?
Janet: We -- we can't start without Jack. It wouldn't be right.
Liberty: Mom, hey, if we don't start now, I'm gonna lose it, okay, and it's not fair to do to Katie. Look at her. Can we just please get this over with?
Preacher: If anyone would like to say something about Brad, please come up and share with us.
Margo: No, don't.
Craig: What do you think I'm gonna say? [Clears throat] Brad didn't like me. It's fair to say he hated my guts. But he loved my little sister more than his own life. We have that much in common. On the day he died, he extended an olive branch. He reached out to include me in the celebration of their new baby. That's the kind of husband he was. That's the kind of father he would have been. You were lucky to find a man that loved you that much, and I'll always be inspired by his generosity. I'm sorry I never had the chance to tell him that. But I will make sure that his little boy knows exactly the kind of man that he really was. I promise you, Brad will not be forgotten.
Janet: When I first met Brad, I was 15 years old, and he was a football star, all-state champion, and he was gorgeous, even if he did say so himself.
Janet: I fell in love with him at first sight, and I put him up on a pedestal so high it was really hard for anybody to live up to that, and he didn't, but then, when I saw him again, years later, he was a changed man, and it was all because of Katie. He had grown in to a good, decent man who was also an amazing father to his daughter. And we didn't always agree as parents, but one thing for sure, there was never any doubt of how much he loved her. I'm sorry. I told myself I was gonna keep it together, but I just -- I loved him so much.
Liberty: Hi. I only met my dad a couple years ago, and I wish I could have had more time with him, but it was the most amazing thing that's ever happened to me in my life, and I'm gonna miss him a lot, and I love you, Dad. I'll miss you forever.
Margo: Katie, you don't have to.
[Jack comes in the church and waits in the hallway]
Katie: No. I do, I do. It's important. I want to thank you all for the wonderful things that you've said about Brad. I don't even really know what I can add, but he was a wonderful husband and the best partner I could ask for, but I think he would have been such a wonderful father to our little boy, just as he was to Liberty. Before Brad died, he was trying to tell me what he wanted to name our son, but he never got the chance, and I've been desperately trying to figure it out. It's like he left me a clue as to how he wanted us to be, but I didn't know what it was until I found this notebook. Brad Snyder, sixth grade. "My hero. My hero is my brother, Jack Snyder." "Jack isn't scared of anything, and he never takes shortcuts, which is why sometimes it's hard to believe we're brothers, but our mom says we are, and I guess it must be true, otherwise there's no way a guy like him would hang out with a scrub like me. He's gotten me out of more jams than I can count, but when he does, he always says I'll do better next time. Sometimes I do. I want to make him proud of me. So far, no good, but they say, 'where there's life, there's hope,' so maybe someday if I work hard enough, I'll grow up to be just like him." I don't know why Jack's not here. I think maybe he blames himself for what happened, but I don't. I know how much Jack loved his brother, and Brad loved Jack so much. So, Brad, our son's name is Jacob, Jacob Bradley Snyder, after two of the best men I've ever known.
[Jack leaves the church]
Alison: That was so sad. Well, I'll -- I'll see you around.
Casey: Yeah, yeah. I'll see you soon.
Holden: Jack should have been here. I'm worried about him.
Parker: Tell me about it. I mean, he was up all night writing that speech. Why wouldn't he show up?
Holden: I don't know. It's not like him at all. Maybe I should help you look for him.
Parker: I'm actually gonna check on Liberty first and see how she's doing, but I'll catch up with you later, okay?
Liberty: Mom, what are you doing? Are you calling Jack?
Janet: Of course.
Liberty: Why bother, Mom? He didn't even make it to his own brother's memorial service. I don't know how he can live with himself.
Janet: That's not fair!
Liberty: I don't understand how he could blow this off. And I really don't understand how Katie could name her baby after the man who killed his father.
Janet: All right, stop it, Liberty! That's enough, okay? Jack loved Brad, and he is hurting just as much as you are.
Rosanna: You know, what you said up there, that was really amazing. Not what most people would expect of Craig Montgomery.
Craig: "Most" people?
Rosanna: Sorry. I guess I'm learning to expect the unexpected where you're concerned.
Craig: You inspire me to be a better man.
Rosanna: Come on. I haven't done anything.
Craig: Are you kidding? You changed everything. Don't you know that I love you, Rosanna?
Rosanna: Did you just --
Craig: I love you.
Rosanna: Oh. I think I love you, too.
[Jack is getting in his car and sees Carly]
Carly: Am I too late?
On the next "As the World Turns" --
Jack: Are you here to stay?
Henry: I want a chance to make things right with you, Katie.
Katie: Can you bring Brad back to life?
Brad: Honey, I'm home.
Jack: She's here for me. We have some things to talk about at the station.
Carly: We need to talk about our engagement.
