Craig: Carly, this isn't --

Carly: It's not what I think?

Craig: No, and I have a --

Carly: A perfectly reasonable explanation?

Craig: Yes.

Carly: And what might that be, Craig?

Craig: Rosanna was upset for interrupting us earlier, and I was trying to her.

Carly: Do you think that I'm an idiot? All I gave up in rehab was my vodka habit, not my brain, Craig, and not my temper!

Rosanna: Carly --

Carly: The only question is, who gets it first? You, for stealing my fiancé, or you, for having sex with my sister?

Jack: Whiskey, straight up.

Bartender: I would have pegged you for a beer man.

Jack: Used to be. Lost my taste for the stuff. Did this bar used to have a different name?

Bartender: Always been Tiredness. Why?

Jack: My brother Brad used to live in Philadelphia. Worked not too far from here, place called the Hideaway. He was gonna buy it. Anyway, you heard of the place?

Bartender: Never heard of it.

Jack: It was worth a shot. Thanks.

Bartender: Hey, check the food bank two blocks over. Guy who runs it knows everybody.

Ben: Hey! Jack? Jack Snyder!

Jack: Ben Harris. It's good to see you.

Ben: Is it? 'Cause I could have sworn you were running away from me.

Dusty: We meet again. It must be fate.

Teri: Or my bad luck.

Dusty: Why so angry?

Teri: Why am I so -- I'm so angry at you, Dusty! You!

Dusty: What did I do?

Teri: You tied me up and you left me on the ground!

Dusty: Oh, no. Not this again.

Teri: And you jumped on me and you nearly broke my ribs!

Dusty: I saved you. You should be kissing my feet.

Teri: Kissing your feet?

Dusty: That Uncle Ralph didn't blow you away.

Teri: He wouldn't -- I don't want to talk about this, okay?

Dusty: You're the one who brought it up.

Janet: Oh, hi. Are you doing some homework before you take the baby home?

Katie: Oh, this? No. It's not mine. I was just reading it. What are you doing here?

Janet: I'm looking for you. Margo called and said that you were taking the baby home today, and since she's out on a call --

Katie: Big sister wanted to make sure I didn't drop the baby or leave him on a bus or something.

Janet: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. She just thought you might need some help. So, I'm here. If there's anything I can do, I'd love to help.

Katie: Well, thank you so much for the offer, but Jacob and I will be fine.

Nurse: Here's the little man.

Katie: Hi. Hi, Jacob. Hey. It's me, your mommy. Remember me?

Janet: Hi, Sweetie. My gosh!

Katie: Thank you.

Nurse: You're welcome.

Janet: I just can't get over how much he looks like Brad. Oh, I'm sorry. That probably doesn't help you right now.

Katie: Don't be sorry. Every time I look at those beautiful eyes, I see Brad, too. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Henry: Brad! God! God! Can't I even bathe in peace?

Brad: Yeah! Why do you think I'm waiting out here instead of popping in to the shower? Besides, who wants to see you naked?

Henry: Great. Ghostly visitations in the bathroom. That's truly the stuff of nightmares, Brad.

Brad: Hey, Henry, you want me to stop visiting you, then get on the stick.

Henry: And do what?

Brad: Find a way to bring me back from the dead.

Rosanna: Carly, I am so sorry. I'm glad that you're angry because I was afraid that you would be so upset --

Carly: That I'd start drinking again? Over this? Over you?

Craig: Rosanna, I think this is between Carly and me.

Rosanna: No. I'm not going anywhere. We're in this together.

Carly: Such devotion. That's so sweet, although it kind of makes me want to throw up, because I know that this is really about payback. This is really about Mike Kasnoff, isn't it?

Craig: Carly, you're way off the mark here.

Rosanna: This has nothing to do with Mike or the past or any kind of revenge on my part, okay?

Carly: You came back to town broke and needy, and you moved in to my home and you cozied up to my children!

Rosanna: You know what? That's not the way it happened. That's not my game. That's your game. You're the one who plays the nice girl and then stabs somebody in the back. And, for your information, if you don't remember, I was married to Craig before you ever came along!

Carly: You told me that you hated him! You never stopped giving me grief when I told you that we were getting married!

Rosanna: Well, I was concerned, okay? I was concerned about you!

Carly: You wanted him for yourself! And the minute that I left for rehab --

Craig: What?

Carly: When did it start?

Craig: What?

Carly: "What?" This! You! Did you wait until I was in detox or did you start getting it on before I left?

Rosanna: Carly, we didn't sneak around behind your back.

Carly: Evidence to the contrary. You bought this for her, didn't you?

Craig: Yes.

Carly: While I was in rehab?

Rosanna: Carly, we didn't even realize how we felt about each other until after you left.

Carly: After I left? Rosanna, you were supposed to be looking after my kids, not going bump in the night with Craig!

Rosanna: It wasn't like that. I promise you it wasn't like that.

Carly: But why hide it? Why didn't you just tell me that you were sleeping together?

Craig: Because you were trying to get sober! We didn't want to interrupt that. I know how hard it was for you to go in to rehab.

Carly: Please don't give me this "We were concerned about you" bull! You didn't have to lie to me! You didn't have to pretend you hated each other!

Rosanna: Trust me, we weren't pretending.

Craig: You can say that again. I don't know. Maybe it was the flip side of all that hatred. I don't know.

Carly: Oh, yes, hate. Well, that's quite an aphrodisiac, right? First, you try to kill her --

Craig: I didn't try to kill her.

Carly: -- And then you try to get her into your bed. Foreplay isn't the same without attempted murder, is it?

Craig: All right, now you're trying to cheapen this, make it insignificant, and it wasn't. It isn't. We're in love.

Carly: In love?

Craig: Carly.

Carly: So, what you felt for me when you asked me to marry you, when you told me that you wanted to spend the rest of your life with me, that wasn't love? Well, thank you for clearing that up.

Katie: Maybe we should have let Janet come with us, huh? Might not be so lonely. Come on, Jacob. Let's run away.

Jack: It's been a long time.

Ben: And all I get's a handshake? Forget that. So, how you doing?

Jack: I'm good. I'm great.

Ben: Yeah? What brings you to Philadelphia?

Jack: I'm working a case, undercover.

Ben: Ah. Well, that explains the lousy shave. Look, I didn't blow anything by calling you out?

Jack: No, not at all. I'm off duty, so I thought I'd check out your neighborhood. What ever happened to the Hideaway?

Ben: Oh, that sleazy bar where Brad used to work, huh? It's a parking lot.

Jack: That's too bad.

Ben: So, how is that brother of yours, still getting in to trouble and expecting you to bail him out?

Jack: Listen, I'm holding you up, okay? I should take off.

Ben: When you heading back to Oakdale?

Jack: I'm not in a rush.

Ben: Great. Then you can hang with me for a while.

Jack: No, you're busy.

Ben: Come on. I insist. You know, I helped build this food bank. I love showing it off. We can talk about old times. Brad used to tell me some wild stories about when the two of you were growing up.

Jack: Did he?

Ben: Yeah. I'd love to find out whether or not they were true.

Jack: Well, it would be nice to remember the good times.

Ben: All right, then. Let's do it, huh?

Teri: Hi. I wanted to see how you were doing. I was waiting for you.

Janet: Why?

Teri: How's Liberty? God, she must be going through hell losing her dad.

Janet: Yeah, especially so soon after losing her baby.

Teri: Liberty had a miscarriage?

Janet: Oh, please don't try and be sympathetic.

Teri: What does that mean?

Janet: You were the one who wanted her to have an abortion.

Teri: I didn't want her to have an abortion. I didn't want her to do anything. I just was trying to help her.

Janet: Right, like you helped Uncle Ralph bandage his wounds after he got Brad shot?

Teri: I didn't realize what was going on when Ralph showed up.

Janet: Katie is taking that little boy home today alone. She's gonna have to raise that baby by herself because you got Ralph involved in their lives.

Teri: You're gonna blame that on me, too?

Janet: Oh, Honey, you were his biggest cheerleader. You were the one who wanted everyone to welcome him with open arms.

Teri: Ever since I was a little girl, he was nothing but good to me. How was I supposed to know he was gonna turn into a monster?

Janet: He was always a monster. You just refused to see it. You were too busy thanking him for putting you through college and paying your bills and making your life all nice and cushy.

Teri: You can't act like I was the only one. You loved him, too. You wanted him to be like a father to you.

Janet: Okay. Ralph may have fooled me for like a half a second, but I opened my eyes. You never opened your eyes. You never wanted to see him for what he really was.

Dusty: It's not Teri's fault.

Teri: No, not you. I do not need you to fight my battles for me.

Dusty: I thought you were supposed to be the nice sister.

Henry: Oh, God. God. Do you mind? It is rude to read over someone else's shoulder.

Brad: Do you think I give a damn about manners right now? I just want to leave this limbo land and live again. What does the book say?

Henry: What do you think it says? Dead is dead. I can organize a séance for you so you can move some furniture around, but I can't bring you back to life, Brad. So go haunt somebody else. Oh, don't. Don't do that.

Brad: I am stuck in this no-fly zone for a reason. There's got to be something unfinished and something I can do to earn my place back in the real world. Stop her. Stop her.

Henry: Katie, Katie. Wait, wait.

Katie: Give me one good reason.

Brad: Hey. Hi, Jacob. It's me. It's Daddy.

Henry: I just wanted to see the baby.

Brad: Oh, he's so little. Oh, he needs someone to protect him until he can stand on his own.

Katie: Okay, you've seen him. Now get away from him.

Brad: He needs someone to teach him how to be a man, a better man than his father ever was.

Henry: Don't say that.

Katie: I mean it, Henry. I don't want you anywhere near my son.

Brad: You need to talk to her. Get her to see me. She needs me. Jacob needs me.

Henry: Listen. Katie, Katie. Listen. I wish I could bring Brad back. I really do.

Katie: You wish? I just had to bring my baby home from the hospital for the first time and couldn't even go in to my house.

Both: Why not?

Katie: Because there's no home in my house. Homes are filled with love and laughter and hope, and the only thing that's filling my home is painful memories.

Henry: I'm sorry, Katie.

Brad: Don't feel sorry for yourself. Don't you dare.

Henry: It's not me I'm feeling sorry for. It's her! It's you. It's the baby. And I don't want you to give up hope, okay, because Brad may be gone, but his spirit is still here. It's right here.

[Baby crying]

Katie: That's nice. Why don't you put that in a greeting card, Henry. Maybe you can sell it somewhere.

Brad: If you don't get through to her, I am gonna haunt you for the rest of your life.

Henry: What else do you want me to do?

Katie: I told you, Henry! Stay away from me!

Henry: I'm not talking to you! I'm talking to Brad!

Dusty: It's Ralph's fault, not Teri's.

Janet: But she got people to trust him, and if anybody said anything bad about him --

Dusty: He's a charmer. Nobody does it as well as Ralph. If he came to you instead of Teri, you, too, would have been charmed.

Janet: Maybe.

Dusty: What's really going on with you?

Janet: Brad's dead. He was my first love, and we share a child together, and I know it was a long time ago, but it still hurts.

Dusty: Well, at least you and Jack still have each other.

Janet: No, I don't have Jack, either. He left to God knows where. And he lost his brother and his badge and his self-respect, and instead of turning to the woman who promised to love him in sickness and in health, in good times and bad times, he leaves.

Dusty: He'll be back.

Janet: How do you know?

Dusty: 'Cause he's got you waiting for him. How's he gonna stay away? In the meantime, don't disown your sister.

Janet: I can't believe I'm taking family advice from Dusty Donovan.

Dusty: Well, you never know. For once, I might be right.

Ben: So, we named the food bank "Philabundance."

Jack: I like the name.                   

Ben: I'll tell you something, this place gives me more than it gives them. They go home with free food, but I get to see lives change. Am I talking too much?

Jack: No, absolutely not. It's good to hear someone happy.

Ben: You're not?

Jack: What about medicine? Neurosurgery, huh? Did you give that up altogether?

Ben: I keep my hand in. What's going on with you?

Jack: I can't really talk about it.

Ben: Undercover, right?

Child 1: Why can't I have another apple?

Child 2: Because we're just supposed to take what we need, no extras. Three apples is enough for you, me, and Mom.

Child 1: Here, let's go.

Child 2: Put it back, Mark. Here, you can have mine.

Ben: Sound familiar?

Jack: I got to go. Thanks, but I got to run.

Carly: So, you don't love me, and you probably never did. Got it.

Rosanna: Where are you going?

Carly: Out, away from you.

Rosanna: No, please, please. Carly, listen. You have to understand that I am so incredibly sorry and I so wish that I had told you sooner.

Carly: What was stopping you?

Craig: You. Carly, you sealed yourself off from us. You wouldn't even let us visit.

Carly: This is my fault?

Craig: No, no. You needed time alone to heal, and I'm not just telling myself that, but when I didn't hear from you for months, I mean, not even a postcard, I could only assume that you were rethinking everything about your life, including our engagement.

Carly: Oh, what a crock. If you cared at all about what I was thinking, you would have waited and you would have asked me! So, what is it? What happened? You finally got me and then you realized that you didn't want me after all?

Craig: No, that's not what happened.

Carly: No? Then what? I turned out to be a drunk, so you traded up for a classier model? Although "Classier" might not be the word to describe you.

Craig: All right. You know what? All right, you can hate me all you want, but lay off Rosanna and everyone else who put you first.

Carly: What do you mean, "Everyone else"? Oh, Parker. That's why he couldn't even look me in the eye. You dragged my child into this?

Craig: We didn't want to.

Carly: Why didn't I listen to Jack all those times he told me not to trust you?

Craig: Okay, don't throw Jack into my face after all the times I stopped him from bullying you!

Craig: I'm surprised that he didn't sniff out what was going on between the two of you!

Rosanna: Actually, he did. Jack knew about us weeks ago.

Carly: Jack knew?

Ben: Jack, hold on, man.

Jack: Hey, I just remembered there's something I got to do, Ben.

Ben: I know it's been a long time since we've seen each other, but you're still my friend. Something's obviously --

Jack: Wait a minute. Hold on a second. Something big is going down here.

Ben: Yeah, but what?

Jack: Him. Looks like they got a jumper.

[Music throughout]

Ben: I know one of the cops over there. He filled me in.

Jack: Please tell me it's a publicity stunt.

Ben: No such luck. According to Sergeant McGill, the guy's a whack job. Went in to First National dressed like Ben Franklin, said he had a gun. Walked out with 100 grand.

Jack: And he thought his fastest getaway would be up there?

Ben: Well, he heard the sirens, panicked, and that's where he ended up. I mean, how bad could it be for a guy to want to end up on the asphalt in a few hundred pieces?

Jack: Are they gonna get a crisis counselor up there for him?

Ben: They already put a call out, but apparently the counselor's tied up with a hostage situation over in south Philly.

Jack: What did you say the sergeant's name was, McGill?

Ben: Yeah. Jack --

McGill: Hey, stay back!

Jack: You're in charge, right? You're just gonna let this guy jump?

Ben: This is a friend of mine, Jack Snyder. I already let him know you put a call in to the crisis counselor, so let's let Sergeant McGill do his job.

McGill: Yeah, let's.

Jack: Did it ever occur to you that your jumper might not want to wait for your counselor? There's got to be something you can do down here besides sit on your hands.

McGill: What the hell do you know about it?

Jack: More than you.

Ben: All right, excuse us. Sorry to bother you.

McGill: Get him out of here.

Ben: Man, what are you doing getting in the man's face like that?

Jack: I'm sorry. I see the guy up there. It just got to me, okay? You're right. It's not my jurisdiction.

[Cell phone ringing]

Jack: Take that. I need to go anyway.

Ben: Just hang on. We need to have a cup of coffee and talk, all right?

Jack: I've got some paperwork to catch up on, okay? And obviously, you're very busy. Some other time.

Ben: Look, are you sure you're okay?

Jack: Yeah, I'm fine. Ben, best of luck with the food bank, okay?

Ben: Yeah. Look, I'm on my way, all right? Yeah. You take care of yourself, all right, Jack?

Jack: I'll do that.

Ben: Tell Brad I said hey.

Jumper: Get back! I'm gonna jump! Get back! I'm gonna jump!

Jack: Excuse me. Excuse me.

Carly: There is no way that Jack knew about your affair and didn't tell me.

Craig: Yes, because you were locked away in that place and you weren't talking to anybody. And we were all trying and obviously failing to do what was best for you.

Carly: For yourselves, you mean. Jack isn't like that. He would not let you blindside me like that.

Rosanna: I'm going after her.

Craig: No, no, no. Just give her some time.

[Rosanna cries]

Craig: Oh, come on, come on, come on. Don't cry, don't cry. We both knew this was gonna happen.

Rosanna: Yeah, but we didn't know it was gonna be like this. I mean, we knew she'd find out.

Craig: It's gonna be okay.

Rosanna: No, it's okay. You know, you lost a fiancé and you're replacing her with me. I may have lost my sister!

Craig: You're not a replacement. You're the woman I love.

Rosanna: Yeah, well, maybe Carly is right. You go after things with a vengeance, and then when you get them, you slowly but surely lose interest.

Craig: Okay. If you want to question my staying power, look at my relationship with Johnny. I fought for him, I won him, and I won't give him up.

Rosanna: I'd expect you to feel that way about Johnny. He's your flesh and blood. But this is different. I've already lost you a couple of times. How is this time gonna be any different?

Craig: Because one thing's never changed about me. Years ago, I fell for a stubborn, vulnerable, powerful woman named Rosanna Cabot, and I never got over her. I never will.

Henry: Katie. Katie, wait. Wait! Do you want to know why I've been acting so nuts?

Katie: No.

Henry: No, listen! Please, Honey! Please! When I tackled Ralph, when I tried to keep him getting away, I hit my head.

Katie: And you're telling me this why? Not to get sympathy, I hope.

Henry: No, I'm just trying to say that --

Katie: Henry: That guy Ralph, the one you owed money to, the one I went to talk to to help you, he held my husband in front of him like a human shield. He got him shot and killed. So, forgive me if I can care less about a little bump on your head.

Brad: She's got a point.

Henry: This is not about the injury, okay? What I'm trying to say is that after I clonked my head, something changed. I began to see things. I began to see stars at first, and then I started seeing Brad.

Katie: Brad?

Brad: You're making headway. Keep going.

Henry: Yes, I've been seeing him ever since, and he's right here. He's right here beside me.

Katie: Don't do this to me.

Brad: Make her understand.

Henry: Listen, Katie. Brad's love for you did not die, okay? It is as real and as alive as your baby boy here, all right, and if you would just open your eyes or close your eyes or -- maybe it doesn't matter at all. If you would just trust in this love. If you would just open your eyes and trust in this love, you will see him standing here. He's not six inches from me.

Katie: I'm looking.

Henry: Do you see him?

Katie: All I see is a sick, cruel, self-serving person who used to call himself my friend. You really think that inventing the ghost of my dead husband would make me feel better?

Henry: No, I'm not inventing him.

Katie: Stay away from me! Stay away from me, Henry, for the last time!

Brad: I just have one thing to say.

Henry: What?

Brad: Boo. You may not want a ghost, but you have one for the duration, Henry.

[Knock on door]

Janet: Hi. Oh. Hi, Carly. I heard you were back. Come on in.

Carly: It's been quite a homecoming. I can't tell you how sorry I was to hear about what happened to Brad.

Janet: Yeah. What can I do for you?

Carly: Is Jack here? There's something I need to know.

Janet: I'm afraid it's gonna have to wait.

Carly: It's kind of important.

Janet: It always is with you, Carly. It always is. But he's not here.

Carly: Okay. Well, when you see him, will you have him call me, please?

Janet: Why don't you call him?

Carly: I did. It goes straight to voice mail.

Janet: Oh.

Carly: Janet, did Jack happen to mention anything to you about Rosanna and Craig having a thing?

Janet: [Sighs] Yes, he did.

Carly: Oh, God. Oh, I don't believe it, that he knew and then you knew and Parker knows. Is there anybody in this town who doesn't know?

Janet: Carly, you know what? Sometimes it's not all about you, okay?

Carly: Okay. Tell Jack I came by.

Janet: Wait. I can't. I can't tell him. He's not here. Brad's dead, and Jack is off somewhere licking his wounds, and he's not returning my calls, so I'm really sorry if I don't give a damn about who your boyfriend's sleeping with.

Jumper: I mean it! I'll do it! I'll jump!

Jack: I wish you wouldn't.

Jumper: Stay away from me! You stop or I'll jump!

Jack: Man, you call yourself Ben Franklin?

Jumper: Yeah. What's it to you?

Jack: I happen to be a fan of Franklin's. I know for a fact that there's no way that he would think jumping off the roof of a building is any way to keep yourself healthy, wealthy or wise.

McGill: Snyder, damn it! Come down from there!

Jumper: Sounds like your friends down below are talking to you.

Jack: Yeah. Well, "A," they're not my friends, and "B," I'm ignoring them. It's quite a view from up here. Definitely gives you a new perspective.

Jumper: You can save your spiel, whatever it is. I'm not coming down unless it's headfirst.

Jack: I believe you. Think maybe I can hang on to your 100 grand when you jump?

Jumper: What kind of a cop are you?

Jack: Who said I'm a cop?

Jumper: You look like one.

Jack: [Laughs] Still? I was hoping it might have worn off by now. Used to be a cop. Now I'm just a man from Illinois who's as messed up as you are.

Jumper: What did you do?

Jack: Why do you ask? What are you gonna tell me? What, that things aren't as bad as they seem? If I just give it some time, things will work out okay?

Jumper: Well, isn't there something that you should be saying to me?

Jack: And why would I? Would you buy it?

Jumper: There's nothing down there for me anymore.

Jack: I know the feeling.

Jumper: What are you doing?

Jack: I want to thank you for sharing your roof with me, Mr. Franklin.

Jumper: The name's not Franklin. It's Finsterwald, Irv Finsterwald.

Jack: Well, it's nice to know you, Irv. I'm Jack.

Carly: I'm really sorry about Jack, but maybe not answering his voice mail is his way of saying "Find me."

Janet: Oh, come on. We both know that's not his M.O.

Carly: Look for him anyway. What have you got to lose?

Janet: My daughter thinks that Jack murdered her father. I can't just leave her here alone. I can't just go off to God knows where.

Carly: Well, she knows that the shooting was an accident, doesn't she?

Janet: Of course she does, but, you know, she doesn't want to see it that way. Jack was drinking before Brad got shot.

Carly: No. Jack would never drink on duty. That would never happen. There has to be some kind of mistake here.

Janet: He was off that night. He was officially off, but when he got the phone call and found out Katie was in trouble, of course he had to go. He's not responsible officially, but Liberty knows about the beers, Parker knows, and Jack especially knows.

Carly: Well, it's no wonder he's punishing himself. He didn't live up to his own code of conduct.

Janet: Exactly. Yeah, something like that.

Carly: He needs you, now more than ever.

Janet: Please don't tell me what my husband needs.

Carly: Sorry.

Janet: Besides, Jack doesn't seem to want my help, and that's what hurts most of all. I gotta get dinner on the table.

Carly: I'll leave you to it.

Teri: Hey. You know, you were right. You were right. You were right about my Uncle Ralph, you and my sister, Janet. You know what you guys should do? You should get together. You should compare notes, talk about how great it is that you figured out how stupid and gullible I am.

Dusty: You want to talk? Sometimes it helps to just talk. If you want to feel sorry for yourself, you can do that on your own.

Teri: Wait. Don't go.

Brad: How hard is it to get Katie to see that I'm still here? Okay, I mean, not in body or whatever this is, but in spirit.

Henry: You're asking me questions I can't answer. No one can.

Brad: What happened to that special bond you're supposed to have with Katie? What good is it if you can't get through to her?

Henry: We used to have a bond, but then you died and she blames me, okay? She hates me now. You saw that. She's put up a wall, Brad.

Brad: Climb over it. She's lonely. You see how much she's hurting.

Henry: Yes, I see how furious she is, too.

Brad: Well, she's mad at you, man. I mean, just get through that. Who cares? Help her to see me, that I'm there, that I was there with her when she was having the baby! I helped her through that. I can help her through this.

Henry: Wait a second, wait a second, wait a second. You were there when she was having the baby? I thought that was Katie's fantasy.

Brad: You're hanging out with a ghost and you want to lecture me about what's real or not?

Henry: We've been barking up the wrong tree here. It's not up to me to make Katie see you. You have to do that yourself.

Katie: You know, one day, I probably could have forgiven Henry for getting involved with that disgusting man. I probably could have forgiven him for all his schemes and selfishness. I could have forgiven him for even taking your daddy away from us, but for pretending that Brad is some ghost like out of a movie -- I mean, of all the selfish, self-serving -- there's having it done.

Brad: It's true. For once in his life, Henry was actually telling the God's honest truth. I'm -- I am here. I don't know why. I'm right here. I guess we're unfinished. I mean, there's got to be something that you need or the baby needs or maybe something that I need, but I cannot leave you until I find out what my mission is and get it done.

Katie: Brad?

Brad: Yes. Yeah, I'm right here. Right here.

Katie: Oh. I wish it was true. I wish for once Henry was telling the truth.

Brad: He was. He was.

Katie: I wish you were here just like you were when the baby was being born.

Brad: I am. I am. Look. Look at me. Look at me. Look at me.

Katie: But you're gone.

Brad: Look at me.

Katie: Forever. And somehow, I'm just gonna have to find a way to accept it. Oh, my God!

Teri: Jan was right. I allowed myself to get duped. You know, I loved having somebody look out for me and take care of me so much that I never even thought to ask my Uncle Ralph how he did it or why. That makes me worse than naive. That makes me an accomplice.

Dusty: That's nonsense. Ralph's a true hustler. How you gonna see through a guy like that?

Teri: You're just trying to make me feel better.

Dusty: No. That's not me. Give your sister a break. She's dealing with a lot right now. She'll come around.

Teri: When?

Dusty: Whenever. Have fun at work. Don't cut yourself.

Teri: Hey, not so fast. Don't think that just 'cause you helped me out today you're entitled to a free meal whenever you want.

Dusty: I look forward to it.

Rosanna: Craig, I know you mean well, but really, I need to see my sister alone.

Craig: Okay, go ahead. I'll just wait out here.

Rosanna: You're making too much out of this.

Craig: I'm waiting. At least until I know you're all right or I know she hasn't talked you in to breaking my heart, too.

Rosanna: She's the one with the broken heart. We need to remember that and have compassion, okay?

Craig: Okay.

Rosanna: Go home. Carly.

Carly: Ah, you're here. Good. You can get your junk out of my house!

Rosanna: Carly, I really need to talk to you. I am so, so --

Carly: I swear to God, Rosanna, if you tell me one more time how sorry you are, you will be eating a coat hanger! You wanted my man, you slept with him, you took him. Get the hell out of my house.

Craig: What?

Rosanna: She's kicking me out.

Craig: Oh. Well, maybe that's for the best.

Rosanna: What are you saying? How can you say that?

Craig: You can make a clean break now, and you can make up for it later.

Rosanna: Craig, if I leave now, I've lost my sister.

Craig: Carly. Carly, don't you think we -- oh. Maybe another time.

[Telephone rings]

Carly: Hello?

Ben: Carly? It's Ben Harris.

Carly: Ben -- oh, Ben! Hi! How are you?

Ben: I'm doing great. I just ran in to Jack, of all people.

Carly: Where? Are you in town?

Ben: No, here in Philadelphia, at a food bank called Philabundance.

Carly: What's going on?

Ben: I was hoping you could tell me. My old friend seems to be in some kind of trouble.

Jack: So, how long have you been impersonating Ben Franklin?

Jumper: 15 years.

Jack: Really? How did you get started?

Jumper: Well, I had dreams of becoming the next de Niro, but now all I do is weddings and bar mitzvahs and shopping mall openings.

Jack: I know about dreams. They suck you in. Then you wake up one morning and you realize that you're not the man you thought you were.

Jumper: Exactly. That's why I decided to do something big, get my own pile of Benjamins. Check it out.

Jack: That's impressive, Irv.

Jumper: I made a big splash, but now what do I do? How can I go back down there knowing what they'll do to me? Then I'll regret what I did for the rest of my miserable life.

Jack: I've been asking myself that very same question.

Next week on "As the World Turns" --

Carly: I can take you away from her whenever I feel like it.

Man: What would you say if I told you that I found the fountain of youth?

Reporter: Coming to you live from city hall in Philadelphia, there's a life and death drama in progress on the roof.

Carly: Oh, my God!

Jack: Come on, Irv. Let's do this together.
