Jack: Carly? What are you doing here?
Carly: Rosanna called the clinic to tell me about Brad. I can't believe he's gone.
Jack: Yeah. Me, either.
Carly: I'm so sorry, Jack.
Jack: Thank you. Are you here to stay?
Carly: It's time. I missed the kids so much. And losing Brad -- I couldn't let all of you go through that without at least showing up to see what I can do.
Jack: Yeah. You're very generous. But if youíre not ready --
Carly: No. I need to be here. Brad drove me crazy, but I loved him. I want to say goodbye. Is the service over?
Jack: I don't know.
Carly: You don't know?
Jack: I just came out to get some air. You should go in, though. Talk to Katie. She's pretty broken up.
Carly: Your family's inside, Jack. How come you're taking off?
Jack: Just let me go.
Carly: No, Jack. You're not getting off the hook that easy.
Craig: Did you just say you're in love with me, too?
Rosanna: You know, let's not talk about this here.
Craig: This is the perfect place to talk about it.
Rosanna: We're at a funeral.
Craig: Brad's death was a tragedy. But doesn't it make you appreciate how precious life is?
Rosanna: Well, uh, not when it scares the hell out of me.
Craig: You're not afraid of anything.
Rosanna: I'm -- I am. I'm afraid of Carly.
Craig: We promised each other we'll tell her the truth as soon as we can.
Rosanna: It's not gonna be pretty.
Craig: Well, look at it this way. As soon as that's over with, everything else will be a cakewalk.
Rosanna: I don't know. I have a bad feeling about this.
Craig: Rosanna, we were at each other's throats before Carly left, but now we've fallen in love with each other again. I'm not gonna give you up without a fight.
Rosanna: Don't say that.
Craig: We're together. I'm not going anywhere. Now, can we just work on being happy?
Jack: Carly, donít. Just let me go.
Carly: Rosanna told me what happened. The shooting.
Jack: I know what you're gonna say. That it wasn't my fault. I was just doing my job.
Carly: I wasn't gonna say that.
Jack: Good, because it's bull. My job is to protect innocent people, not let them get caught in the cross fire. I took my brother's life. I'll never have the chance to make that right.
Carly: Oh, Jack. You expect to have x-ray vision, superhuman strength, and if you don't, you can't forgive yourself. I understand that.
Jack: Good, then you understand why I have to get the hell out of here.
Carly: No, I do. But it's a mistake.
Jack: You're the expert. Iím sorry.
Carly: Don't be. You're right. I know a hell of a lot about giving in to your worst impulses whether it's taking a drink or walking out on the people you love. Which are pretty much the same thing, when you think about it.
Jack: I can't stay here after what I did.
Carly: You're not gonna feel any less guilty someplace else. It's better just to face it. Besides, Katie and the kids -- they need you, Jack. Stick around.
Jack: I'll think about it.
Carly: In the program, they call that "Stinkin' thinkin'."
Jack: Quite a catchphrase.
Carly: It's easy to remember. And it's true. Sometimes thinking can be dangerous. Come on. I'm going in.
Craig: What can we do to help?
Margo: Well, people are going over to Katie and -- to Katieís. I've arranged for some food to be sent over there. Someone should be there to sign for it.
Rosanna: I'll go. Do you have a key?
Margo: There's a key taped under the mailbox.
Craig: Where do you want me?
Margo: Well, we can't go anywhere until we find Katie.
Katie: Brad, I miss you so much --
Brad: Baby, I'm right here.
Katie: Why did you leave me?
Brad: I didnít. I would never leave you, not in a million years.
Katie: We should be here with our son, planning his christening.
Brad: I know. Little Jacob.
Katie: You should have been here to name our boy.
Brad: I was. That old-school notebook wasn't just lying around the house by accident. Henry put it there. The only reason why he found it is because I told him where it was. I need you to hear me. I want Jacob to grow up to be just like Jack. The kind of solid, good guy that people can count on -- that's why I named him that. It's a wish for our son's future. Because no matter what happened, Jack is -- Jack is still the best guy that I've ever known. And, he will never let you down.
Katie: I don't think I can do this without you.
Brad: Yes, you can.
Katie: I don't want to.
Brad: I'm here, Katie. Can't you feel me? I'm still here. Just -- just turn around, and -- and you'll see me. You do see me!
Katie: Go away, Henry. You don't belong here. Not today.
Henry: I know that. I know that. I couldn't stay away, though. I want a chance to make things right with you, Katie.
Katie: How? Can you bring Brad back to life?
Brad: Only halfway.
Katie: What is that look?
Henry: It's nothing.
Katie: My husband just died. I'm sorry if you feel like I'm overreacting!
Henry: I don't -- no. I -- no, of course not. Of course not.
Brad: She's never gonna be able to see me, is she?
Henry: I don't know.
Katie: You don't know? I know exactly what this is. You want me take away your guilt, and I'm not gonna do that. I hope you feel terrible every second of every day of the rest of your life. 'Cause that's what I have to look forward to. A lifetime of missing my husband, thanks to you.
Brad: Do something, Henry.
Henry: What? What can I do? What can I do?
Katie: I told you already, nothing. But you won't get out of here, so I will.
Margo: Nobody saw Katie leave the church.
Rosanna: You know, why don't I just go check the ladies' room? I'm sure she's --
Craig: No, here she is.
Margo: Hi, baby, how are you?
Katie: I'm fine, fine. I just want to go home.
Craig: Well, you know, you can ride with me.
Janet: Why don't you two catch a ride to Katie's with the others?
Liberty: Mom, I don't know if I can I want to be there for Katie, but if I just start bursting into tears every two seconds, I'm gonna make it worse for her.
Parker: Look, I'll -- I'll be there with you, okay? We can hang out for a little while, but if you really can't stand it, I'll take you home. Okay?
Liberty: Okay. But if I start to lose it, Parker --
Janet: Okay, understood. Go on. I'm gonna go back to the farm and see Jack's there.
Jack: I know you mean well, Carly, but there are a lot of things you don't know about what happened.
Carly: Then tell me.
Jack: You just got out of rehab. You don't need to deal with my issues.
Carly: I've been wandering around in my own head long enough. Amends and sobriety 24/7. Thinking about somebody else would be nice for a change.
Jack: You look good. Rested. Do you feel better?
Carly: Um -- I feel. Which is a better way to live, so they tell me.
Jack: Well, I'm glad you got sober. I'm sorry I didn't realize it was happening sooner.
Carly: Not your job.
Jack: I just wish I could've spared you some of the pain.
Carly: It could have been a lot worse. There are a lot of people who think they're taking a harmless drink -- or six -- and then, before they know it, they're in the middle of some horrible tragedy. That's not meant to be funny. What's the matter with you?
Jack: You're right. We should go inside and be with the rest of the family.
Brad: She almost saw me, but it's just -- oh, man, it's just -- it's just no use. I can't get to her. And you're the only person that knows that I'm still here.
Henry: You're not here. You're just a figment of my guilty conscience.
Brad: I am real, Henry. Accept it.
Henry: No, why -- what -- look. The baby has a name. Would you please stop haunting me?
Brad: I'm not haunting you, because I'm not a ghost.
Henry: Then what do you want?
Brad: I have no idea. I have no experience in being dead or undead or whatever the hell I am. All I know is that I'm here and I have something that I have to do. And since you're the only person that can see me, I'm gonna be sticking around you until I figure out what that is.
Jack: Looks like everyone's gone.
Carly: They probably went over to Katieís. Are you going?
Jack: I have some things I have to take care of first.
Carly: Bull. I still know when you're lying.
Jack: It's not much of a homecoming. We should be celebrating the fact that --
Carly: It doesn't matter. This is a horrible thing to come back to, but I'm glad to be home. I was away a long time.
Jack: We noticed.
Carly: I hear that you came up to see me, but you changed your mind and left. How come?
Jack: I got a call. Liberty was in trouble.
Carly: Is she okay?
Jack: Yes and no. Long story. It was a rough summer.
Carly: Still, you didn't drive all the way up to the clinic just to say hello. It must have been important.
Jack: You're here now. That's all that matters. I'm proud of you, Carly. It takes a lot of courage make it through rehab.
Carly: Yeah, it does.
Jack: Hold on to that. You fought hard to get sober. Donít let anything take it away.
Carly: Like what?
Jack: Just wishing you well, that's all. Stay strong.
Katie: There's a grass stain that never came off. Your dad said it was from the championship-winning touchdown.
Liberty: Are you sure you don't want this?
Katie: It's yours.
Liberty: Thank you. What's this?
Katie: Jack was always the one that got the good grades, but Brad was the all-star athlete. He never, ever felt that he could live up to his brother's example, but when he looked at this, it reminded him that everybody's good at something. And you are good at so many things. Your father was amazed by you.
Liberty: Not lately. But he was so excited for me to go to college, and I blew it, and he's gone, and I can't fix it.
Katie: No, that's not true. That is not true he was so proud of you, of the way you handled yourself this summer. So, when you feel like you can't do something or that you're not good enough, you look at this and you think of your dad, okay. Because you can do anything you set your mind to, just like he did.
Liberty: Thank you. It's just so sad to me that he looked up to Jack so much, and he's the one who took him from us.
Margo: Liberty, what happened to your father was a tragic accident. I hope you know that.
Liberty: There's a difference between an accident and a mistake.
Margo: Yes, there is. But I can tell you, as a cop, Jack did everything he was trained to do. And I would have done exactly the same.
Liberty: You wouldn't say that if you knew everything.
Janet: Thank God. I was just about to call you again. I was worried about you. Why didn't you show up for the service?
Jack: I'm fine. Honey, I'm here now.
Janet: Well, I was scared that you would -- that --
Jack: That I what? Went out drinking? Drowned myself in a keg?
Janet: I wasn't gonna say that.
Jack: Sorry. The truth is, I saw Carly.
Janet: What? You drove to the clinic?
Jack: No, she's back in Oakdale. I ran into her when I was leaving the church.
Janet: Whoa. Hold on. You were there? Jack, I was so worried about you, I couldn't even pay attention to what anybody was saying. Why didn't you come sit by me?
Jack: I couldnít.
Janet: How's Carly?
Jack: Better. Sober.
Janet: Well, I think that's the point.
Jack: I just hope she stays that way when she finds out about Rosanna and Craig.
Janet: You didn't tell her?
Jack: I thought about it. Last week, I would have. I was so sure that I was right and Craig was wrong -- why pass up a chance to prove Jack knows best, right? Even if it meant that Carly got her heart broken.
Janet: You did the right thing, Honey. You don't want her to show up clean and sober just to be humiliated.
Jack: Well, and more than that, I couldn't pass up the chance to gloat about how morally superior I am, and guess what. I'm not. Far from it. I have no right to pass judgment on anyone. Not anymore.
Liberty: I'm s-- I'm sorry. I just -- I can't be here right now.
Katie: It's okay. I understand. Call me.
Liberty: I love you.
Katie: I love you, too.
Katie: Take care of her.
Parker: I will. I promise.
Margo: Um, do you -- do you need me for anything else right now?
Katie: No. I'd actually really like to be alone and just have some rest. There've been so many people in and out of here.
Margo: You don't need to explain anything. I think rest is the best thing for you. And there's something that I need to check out. So, take care, okay?
Katie: I love you.
Margo: I love you, too, so much.
[Door opens, closes]
Brad: Where are you going?
Henry: I'm going home, Brad. And, no, you cannot live with me.
Brad: I-I want to go home, too.
Henry: Fine, fine. Walk right over there. You see this grassy area with the stone slabs? Okay, there's a slot with your name on it.
Brad: I'm not ready for that yet.
Henry: Okay, I'm sorry. I don't know how to handle this, all right? How to handle you. I don't know what Iím supposed to do.
Brad: Well, join the club, Henry. Look, I want to see my wife. Maybe -- maybe -- maybe that's why I can't rest in peace. Because I-- I -- I have to get to her. Make it better.
Henry: Then why aren't you spooking her instead of me? She should be the one that sees you. That just makes more sense.
Brad: I don't like hanging out with you, either. But here we are. Henry, please help me reach my wife.
Henry: I hope this works out for you, I do, but Katie can't stand the sight of me. You're on your own.
Brad: Fine. Fine, I'll do it myself. I know Katie better than anyone. I'm gonna reach her. I'll use my whole heart, and I will find a way. What am I doing? All right, Brad, here goes nothing. Honey, I'm home.
Rosanna: Well, it's good to have a little walk, help me clear my head.
Craig: Yeah. It sounds sentimental, but days like today make you appreciate the little things.
Rosanna: You know, you're not as tough as you pretend to be, Mr. Montgomery.
Craig: No, I'm not.
Rosanna: These kinds of days you just got to get through, you know? Worry about real life tomorrow.
Craig: Does that mean you're taking back what you said earlier?
Rosanna: Just the opposite. I'm so grateful to have you in my life.
Craig: I feel the same way.
[Rosanna clears throat]
Carly: Thank you for letting me know about Brad.
Rosanna: Oh, of course. Of course. I wanted to tell you myself, but the clinic wouldn't let me.
Carly: It's fine. And it was just the push I needed. Part of me was scared to come home. Your message convinced me it was time.
Craig: Well, this is a wonderful, wonderful surprise. You look absolutely beautiful.
Carly: I'm very glad you're here. It is finally time for me to get on with my life, such as it is. And you are my first order of business.
Craig: That sounds -- very businesslike.
Carly: We need to talk about our engagement.
Margo: Liberty, how you doing?
Liberty: Very terrible, actually.
Janet: Hey, guys. Why don't you guys go inside, okay? Hi, Margo. Can I help you?
Jack: Janet. She's here for me. We have some things to talk about at the station.
Janet: Well, if you guys need some privacy, I can go inside.
Jack: No, its okay, Sweetheart. Let me do this.
Craig: You can tell me anything, Carly. You don't have to worry. As long as we're honest with each other.
Carly: You make it sound so easy.
Craig: Well, it's easier than living a lie. You have to do what's best for your recovery. That's what's important.
Carly: Well, I'm glad you feel that way, because -- oh, this is so much harder than I thought it would be. The thing is, Craig -- just -- oh, it's Sage. She doesn't know I'm home.
Craig: Answer it. Please, take your time.
Carly: Okay. Hi, baby! It's Mom.
Rosanna: I think I'm gonna have some coffee.
Craig: You know, that sounds good.
Rosanna: Have to tell her. We have to tell her about us.
Craig: Not if she's about to break up with me, which she's obviously about to do, so we should let her do it. And we can fill her in about us later.
Rosanna: When's later gonna be? We can't let somebody else tell her.
Craig: Of course not. But she should be the one to break it off. That way, it'll be better for her, because it will help her save face. I think that's the least we can do.
Brad: Baby, why can't you hear me?
Katie: You always smelled so good.
Brad: Sweetie, you -- did you -- that was freaky. Please talk to me. I am right here. There is so much that I want to tell you. You changed my life. You changed my whole world way before I even knew what was happening. Back when I hated you. Remember that? Even when you made me so mad, you made me so happy. I wanted to grow old with you. And there you'd be, just sunny and smart and beautiful as you were the day I met you. My dream girl. Katie? Did you just feel something? You did. You did. You just -- you just felt something. It's me. It's me. It's me -- Brad. I'm right here. I didn't go anywhere. I'm right here. I'm with you right here.
[Knock on door]
Henry: Listen, I know you don't want to see me. I know you've told me that a dozen times. I just want to make sure you're okay.
Katie: Nothing's changed. My husband still dead. And it's still your fault.
Brad: Thanks a lot, bud. You just blew it for me again.
Jack: I lied to you when I said there weren't any unusual circumstances in that warehouse. It might have happened anyway, but the truth is, I had a couple of beers before I shot Brad that night. Maybe it clouded my judgment, maybe not, but I'll never know.
Margo: A couple? How many?
Margo: I, um -- I don't know what to say.
Jack: Don't say anything.
Liberty: I hope he tells her everything.
Parker: You know what? Why don't you just come out and say what you've been thinking about instead of dropping hints every five seconds?
Janet: All right, that's enough, you two. From now on, this subject is officially off-limits.
Liberty: Mom, no. Parker needs to know.
Janet: Are you sure about that, Liberty? Because once it's out there, you can't take it back. It's out there forever. Is it really worth it?
Liberty: He deserves to know. He shouldn't be the last one.
Parker: To know what?
Liberty: Jack was drinking the night he shot my dad. He never should have had a gun in his hand.
Parker: No. No, there's no way that my dad would go out on a call while he was drunk.
Liberty: It wasn't an official call.
Liberty: It was a personal, and he was trying to rescue Katie.
Parker: Look, Liberty, you're just looking for someone to blame this on. That's why you're saying all of this.
Liberty: No, ask my mom. Or ask Jack.
Parker: You know what? I will, okay?
Janet: I begged you not to do it.
Liberty: It's not fair.
Janet: I know it's not. But the unfair part isn't that Jack's still alive. It's that Brad is gone and your baby is gone, and there's nothing you can do about it except grieve.
Henry: You know, you're not the only person who lost the woman that he loves. I don't even know if she knows what happened.
Brad: Why didn't you call her?
Henry: I did call her. She changed her number. I think she's really over me this time.
Brad: Where there is life, there is hope, Henry. As opposed to my situation.
Henry: Then -- then why don't -- why don't you cross over, okay? Eternity awaits.
Brad: I'm not ready for eternity yet. I have an incredible wife, a beautiful daughter who needs me, a brand-new baby boy that I can't -- I can't touch any of them. I can't even have a damn beer. As far as I'm concerned, of eternity sucks.
Henry: I am sorry. I am sorry. There is nothing I can do about that, though.
Brad: You know, maybe this whole thing is a colossal mistake.
Katie: Jack, hi.
Katie: Come on in.
Jack: Thanks. Sorry I didn't make it to the funeral. I couldn't face it. Not after what I did.
Katie: Oh, it's okay.
Jack: No, please, Katie. Let me -- let me finish, all right? I don't want you to feel obligated to name your son after me. I don't deserve it. And I think it's just gonna be a constant reminder of everything that happened.
Katie: Oh, stop it. I do not feel obligated. I did what I wanted to do. I'm glad Brad wanted to name the baby Jacob.
Jack: But Brad made that choice before he had any idea what I would end up doing to him.
Katie: He wouldn't blame you for what happened.
Jack: Yeah, he would. And you will, too, once I tell you everything.
Katie: What are you talking out?
Jack: I had a couple of beers that night. Before I went to the warehouse after you. And it might have all gone down exactly the same way, with or without the alcohol. But who knows?
Katie: I do because I know you. And I've loved you. And there's one thing that will always be true about you, Jack -- and that's that you're harder on yourself than anyone else ever would be. You'd never trust yourself with at a gun if you thought you were the least bit unsteady.
Jack: Yeah. Well, I want to believe that, but I'm not so sure.
Katie: Then let me be sure. Brad's -- Brad's death was not your fault. Please stop blaming yourself.
Rosanna: Yeah, you know what? I should go and let the two of you talk, okay?
Carly: No, please stay, Rosanna. I want you to hear this, too. Craig, I need to give this back to you
Carly: We got engaged under false pretenses. Not on your part. I was a drunk. I was not capable of making an important decision like that at the time. I put you through so much --too much, and I'm so sorry.
Craig: No, Carly, it's all right. I understand.
Carly: It was entirely unfair.
Craig: Well, I don't actually see it that way.
Carly: You know what? I don't have a lot of experience with this amends stuff, so if I could just say it, and then you can --
Craig: You're right. Just take your time. Say whatever you need to.
Carly: Thanks. I know it must have hurt when you came to visit me and I wouldn't see you. I thought that I was ready, but me when I saw you coming up the front walk, I-I just couldn't do it. I couldn't face you. I wasn't strong enough yet. And it was the same with you, Rosanna. I left you with my kids, I dumped you with my life, and I ran away.
Rosanna: It's okay. You -- you had an illness. And as for the ids, I was grateful to have time with them. And that's what family's for, right?
Carly: I can't thank you enough, both of you. But I'm afraid it's not over. I'm afraid now that I'm back, I'm probably gonna need you now more than I ever have. It helped me so much to get sober knowing that you were here, waiting for me. Especially you my best friend, my lover, my future husband. I'm gonna be so proud, so happy to be your wife.
Jack: Brad was a lucky guy.
Katie: He would have been such a good father. You know, when I got pregnant -- after beating all the odds -- I thought, "Thank you, God. I finally got it right this time." Right guy, right time, after all the misfires -- Simon and Mike and you --
Jack: Oh, hell, that was my fault.
Katie: No, it wasnít. I knew you were still in love with Carly. I just would never admit that I wasn't your first choice. But I was Brad's first choice, always from the very beginning. And I am gonna treasure the way he made me feel. God, I can't believe I'm never gonna feel like that again.
Jack: I wish there were some way I could make it up to you.
Brad: Okay, in the movie, the hero -- he comes back to life, and everyone lives happily ever after. You just have to find out how he did it.
Henry: It's impossible, Brad. Unless you want to sell your soul to the devil like James Stenbeck.
Brad: Where do I sign?
Henry: Oh, my God.
Brad: Oh, man. I just want to be with my wife and kid. I don't care about my soul.
Henry: Listen, read my lips, Brad. I can't do it.
Brad: You have to. You owe me.
Katie: Brad? Are you here?
Janet: I love you.
Jack: Sweetheart, I have to go away for a while. I'm not sure how long, but one thing I couldn't bear is you thinking you had anything to do with it. You don't, Janet. Not in any way. This is about me and what I did. I need to make peace with it somehow. Take care of Liberty. I love you.
Craig: I-I-I don't understand. You gave me the ring back. How can I be your future husband?
Carly: I want you to ask me to marry you again. Properly. And this time, I will properly, soberly accept. I know what I want. I have no doubts.
Parker: Mom? You're home.
Carly: Is that a good thing?
Parker: Yeah. Yeah, I missed you.
Carly: I missed you, too, babe. That's why I want to remember this moment forever. Things are finally as they should be.
Parker: Really? You didn't tell her.
Carly: Tell me what?
On the next "As the World Turns" --
Carly: Aren't you at least a little happy to see me?
Rosanna: Maybe your feelings for me have changed. Maybe you don't love me anymore.
Luke: He already admitted that he's attracted to Noah, and now he's using this film to undermine our relationship.
