Katie: Come on, Brad. Come on! If you're here, just make the chair move.

Brad: I'm over here.

Katie: Please, just make it move once. Please don't make me believe that Henry was lying about seeing you!

Brad: He didn't. Oh! Damn it!

Katie: Maybe the chair's too much. That's okay. That's okay. What about a pillow or -- or just rattle a window or something! A real ghost would be able to do that without breaking a sweat!

Brad: Well, I wish I knew how!

Katie: Or maybe I'm just crazy, talking to people who aren't even here!

Brad: I am here!

Katie: Who else do I have? [Baby cries] Oh, Jacob. Of course I have you. I'm sorry, baby. I'm coming.

Brad: Oh, why is this not working?

Katie: It's okay. Its okay, baby. I'm so sorry I woke you. Your silly mommy was ready to believe in a ghost. I just wish he would give me one sign!

[Doorbell rings]

Katie: Oh, my God.

Brad: Did I do that?

Katie: Brad, did you do that?

Brad: I don't think so.

Katie: What do I do now?

Brad: Answer the door.

Katie: Right, I'll answer the door.

Janet: Hi. I hope I'm not interrupting.

Katie: No. Hi, Janet.

Janet: Oh, good, good, good, 'cause I brought you some supplies, you know, things you might need. I brought you some veal parm in case you're hungry. I brought you some -- are you expecting somebody?

Katie: No. No, I'm not expecting anyone. Not anymore.

Henry: The justice system is trying to get me killed and my best friend doesn't want me within a hundred miles of her! [Sighs] Okay. Fine. They want me to testify against a murderer, I will do so with impeccable hygiene.

Dusty: You don't answer your phone anymore?

Teri: My phone's probably on vibrate. I didn't hear it.

Dusty: I've been calling you.

Teri: I'm sorry.

Dusty: What are you doing here?

Teri: Working on tonight's specials. We're gonna have Chicken Savoy and chili and sea bass.

Dusty: That's not what I mean, and you know it.

Teri: Well, that's the answer you're gonna get.

Dusty: You're supposed to be at the courthouse. Your uncle's hearing starts in ten minutes.

Teri: Yeah. I'm sure my uncle will be just fine without me there.

Dusty: You can't ignore this. You're supposed to testify against him.

Teri: So?

Dusty: So, they'll hold you in contempt.

Teri: Yeah, that's about how I feel about them right now.

Dusty: If you're afraid of your uncle --

Teri: I'm not afraid --

Dusty: The police will protect you.

Teri: Really?

Dusty: Yeah.

Teri: Really? They'll protect me?

Dusty: Yes.

Teri: Well, where were they when he sent me this?

Dusty: "Dear Theresa, I'm sorry I left Oakdale without saying good-bye to my favorite niece. I'm sure you're hearing all kinds of crazy stories about me, and they're probably pressuring you to back up their lies. Just remember, my girl, nothing good ever comes from putting strangers ahead of your family. Love Uncle Ralph." This is a threat.

Teri: Yeah. You want to know what? It's a really effective one.

Dusty: You have to take this to the police.

Teri: No, I don't.

Dusty: Yes, you do, before your uncle hurts anyone else.

Jack: Excuse me. Can I ask you a question?

Man: Oh, we have audio guides you can rent if you're interested.

Jack: No. Actually, I'm interested in this guy. He's a con artist who poses as an art dealer.

Man: Are you an insurance investigator?

Jack: Something like that. Have you seen him around?

Man: Sorry.

Carly: I never took you for an art buff, Jack.

Jack: What are you doing here? You're supposed to be keeping an eye on Molly.

Carly: She's okay.

Jack: You left her alone with a congressman trying to kill her?

Carly: He's behind bars. Who says she's alone?

Molly: I was supposed to report on this morning's surprise announcement from Congressman Silas Whitman. He's running for governor. Yeah, working hard to pass himself off as the "Family values" candidate when, in face, he's been having an illicit affair with a certain New York City anchorwoman. That would be me, Molly Conlon. With that on-air confession, Molly Conlon ended her broadcast. Congressman Silas Whitman has since been charged with attempted murder. Sources say Conlon was the target. She wouldn't confirm reports that she assisted in the arrest.

Molly: Why should I give you a story you won't even let me cover myself? Losers!

[Knock on door]

Molly: Carly? It's about time. Where the hell have you been? Oh, my God! Holden?

Holden: Hey, Molly. It's been a long time.

Molly: Holden! Oh, my God! I can't believe you're here! What are you doing here?

Holden: Carly asked me to come keep an eye on you.

Molly: Where is she?

Holden: Pittsburgh, I think.

Molly: Ah, chasing Jack.

Holden: You're not too disappointed, are you?

Molly: Are you kidding me? It is so good to see you.

Holden: You too.

Molly: Oh, my God. I'm barely dressed.

Holden: I didn't notice.

Molly: Oh, you better be lying. Come in. So, can I get you something to drink or eat?

Holden: No, no, I'm good. I had something at the airport.

Molly: So, Holden, I heard that you were dead and came back to life.

Holden: Not quite.

Molly: Well, I'm really sorry I didn't get in for your funeral, but next time, I promise.

Holden: I'll hold you to that.

Molly: So, Carly called you to babysit me?

Holden: She told me about what happened on TV, how you nailed that congressman.

Molly: It made the Oakdale news?

Holden: Well, you are a New York news anchor. You're big-time, Molly.

Molly: Which means Abigail will see it and be disappointed in me yet again.

Holden: Abigail would never hold that against you.

Molly: I know you're just saying that. Thank you.

Holden: You didn't do anything wrong.

Molly: Yeah, except sleep with a married man and freak out on TV.

Holden: Okay, okay. Maybe that.

Molly: I really appreciate you coming here. I really do. But it wasn't necessary.

Holden: He tried to kill you.

Molly: I know, but the cops have him admitting it on tape.

Holden: He's a congressman. He's out on bail. I'm sure he has an incredible lawyer, and I'm sure the judge is one of his hunting buddies. He will walk.

Molly: I thought I was cynical.

Holden: I just think you need to get out of here. Just get out and wait till the dust settles.

Molly: I have nowhere to go.

Holden: Yes, you do. Oakdale.

Molly: [Scoffs] Like hell!

Jack: You convinced Holden to look after Molly?

Carly: It wasn't that difficult, really. I think he wanted an excuse to get out of Oakdale. There seems to be a lot of that going around these days.

Jack: So, how did you find me again?

Carly: I followed the same leads you did, and here we are.

Jack: It was that easy?

Carly: I know how your mind works, Jack.

Jack: You shouldn't be here, Carly. I can find Simon on my own.

Carly: How's that going for you? It's time to admit you need my help.

Jack: What makes you so sure that you could find Simon if I can't?

Carly: Easy. I know how his mind works, too.

Dusty: This is exactly what your uncle's counting on.

Teri: What is?

Dusty: His threats getting to you.

Teri: Yeah, well, I've never let him down before, so why should I start now?

Dusty: Well, you know who he is. You know what kind of damage he can do to people.

Teri: Yeah, I do.

Dusty: Then testify against him. Put him away.

Teri: You really think that whatever I have to say is gonna stop him?

Dusty: Yeah. It's a good start.

Teri: What if it doesn't? What if it doesn't stop him?

Dusty: The police will protect you.

Teri: It's not me that I'm worried about. You see what he does. He doesn't go after the people who've betrayed him. He goes after the people who are closest to them, and that's not a risk I'm willing to take, not with Janet or Liberty's life. No way.

Dusty: This is exactly what he's counting on, that you care about your family so much. It's what he's hiding behind. It's what he did with Brad in that warehouse.

Teri: That's not fair.

Dusty: Well, what is fair? I really thought you were braver than this.

Teri: Well, maybe I'm not.

Dusty: You're gonna have to be.

Teri: I told you I wasn't gonna testify.

Dusty: Well, what happens when your uncle hurts more people? How you gonna face them? 'Cause sooner or later, you're gonna have to face them. And "Sorry" is not gonna cut it.

Janet: Hi, little one! Hi, little peanut! Oh, you're awfully cute, aren't you? It's your Aunt Janet! Yeah, it's your Aunt Janet! Oh, is that okay?

Katie: Yeah, of course.

Janet: Oh, good. How's he sleeping?

Katie: Fine.

Janet: Do you need anything?

Brad: Everything.

Katie: Nothing.

Janet: Are you sure?

Katie: Yeah. We're both great.

Brad: Janet, don't believe her.

Janet: Because I know what it's like to have a newborn at home and be alone.

Katie: Oh, I'm not alone. Margo's here all the time and my friends.

Brad: One friend who's court-ordered to stay away.

Janet: Listen to me. If you need to take a long, extended nap or you need to go shopping, get some new shoes or something, you let me know, okay? I'd be more than happy to take care of this little one. Got lots of free time since Jack's been gone.

Katie: He's still gone? Where is he?

Janet: Last I heard, he was in South Carolina visiting Mike Kasnoff.

Katie: Mike? Why?

Janet: I don't know. I don't even think he knows.

Katie: I wish he would stop blaming himself. What happened to Brad was not his fault.

Brad: On the other hand, he did put a bullet in me.

Janet: I don't believe that he'll ever think it wasn't his fault, at least not yet.

Katie: Don't give up on him, Janet. He's a good man, and they're hard to find. When you have one, you should never --

[Baby crying]

Janet: Oh, Katie. Did I wake him up?

Katie: No, no. He's been fussy. It's okay. You know what? I'm gonna put him in his crib.

Janet: Do you want me to do it?

Katie: No, I got it.

Brad: Okay, Janet. It's just you and me now and the connection that we've had since the eighth grade. I need you -- I need you to hear me! You've got to see that Katie is drowning, and you have to help her.

Henry: Whoa! Hey, ho, ho, ho, ho! How did you get in here?

Man: Mr. Manzo says he's real sorry for your memory loss.

Henry: My memory -- wait a second, wait a second. I don't want any trouble here, okay, but if I don't testify against him, I'm going to jail.

Man: Things could be worse. A lot worse.

Carly: So, what's our next step, Jack?

Jack: Our next step is finding you a way back to Oakdale.

Carly: Even though you won't find Simon without me.

Jack: I'll take my chances.

Carly: Obviously.

Jack: What is that supposed to mean?

Carly: Well, Jack, let's see, you've already jumped off a building. You've driven a racecar at 100 miles an hour. You've nearly been killed by a congressman. What's next, skydiving without a parachute?

Jack: I know what I'm doing, Carly.

Carly: Then why don't you tell me?

Jack: It's not your problem.

Carly: If you get yourself killed, I'm the one who will have to explain it to our kids, and right now, I don't even know what I would tell them if they asked me why.

Jack: Just looking for Simon.

Carly: For Katie, because of Brad. Do you have any idea how crazy that is?

Jack: I don't need your opinion, Carly, okay? I don't need you here at all.

Carly: Well, you need someone, and you won't let your wife in, so it looks like you're stuck with me.

Jack: Why are you so hot to help me find Simon, anyway?

Carly: You think I still have a thing for him.

Jack: Do you?

Carly: He was the worst mistake I ever made, and that's saying a lot.

Jack: So, if it's not that --

Carly: I told you, after everything you've done for me, I want to return the favor.

Jack: I don't need your help, Carly.

Carly: I think you do.

Jack: And I think you're running away.

Carly: From what?

Jack: Craig and Rosanna, maybe?

Carly: Wrong.

Jack: Well, let's not forget, I know how you think, too.

Carly: Maybe.

Jack: How about this, you don't question my reasons for being here and I'll stop questioning yours.

Carly: Do you mean that?

Jack: I do. Now why don't we find this loser so we can both go home?

Katie: Shhh! Stop crying, baby. It's okay.

Janet: Maybe he's hungry.

Katie: No. I just fed him not long ago.

Janet: Yeah, but if he's got Brad's appetite -- you know what? I'm sorry.

Katie: Jacob, its okay. It's okay! It's okay!

Brad: He's crying because she's stressed out and he feels it.

Janet: You know, sometimes babies are sensitive to our moods.

Katie: Are you saying this is my fault?

Janet: No! Of course not! I'm just saying that if you're tired or maybe you need a break or something, they can sense that.

Katie: He just gets fussy when strangers are around.

Janet: And that's my cue.

Brad: No, Janet. No! Don't let -- no! Don't let her scare you away!

Katie: Thank you for the food.

Janet: If you need anything --

Katie: Please just tell Jack to come home so I can stop worrying.

Janet: I will.

Katie: Call me when he gets back.

Brad: Why are you doing this? She wants to help you. She's been where you are. Why do you keep pushing her away?

Katie: We're gonna be okay, right? Just the two of us?

Brad: No, Katie. You're not.

Molly: So, you and Carly decided that you should bring me back to Oakdale, huh?

Holden: We talked about it.

Molly: Yeah, well, maybe you should have talked to me.

Holden: You'll be safe there.

Molly: I'm safe here.

Holden: No, you're not, and why would you even want to stay here?

Molly: I have a life here, thank you very much.

Holden: A blown affair with a married man and a job you lost freaking out on TV?

Molly: I see you still do that.

Holden: Do what?

Molly: Throw my own words against me.

Holden: Maybe it's because it's something you already know.

Molly: I can get another job.

Holden: Nobody's gonna hire you here after everything that you've been through.

Molly: I can go back to L.A.

Holden: You didn't burn your bridges there?

Molly: Not all of them, no. Not as many as I burned in Oakdale.

Holden: Molly, Oakdale is your home.

Molly: I think Lily will have a few choice lines of her own if you come riding back into town with me.

Holden: I'm not with her anymore.

Molly: Oh, come on. You're always with Lily.

Holden: She's married to Damian Grimaldi.

Molly: Huh? When did that happen?

Holden: When she thought I was dead.

Molly: That's cold.

Holden: So, you don't have to worry about her reaction.

Molly: No, just the rest of the citizenry.

Holden: Like I said, it was all a long time ago, and I'm sure everyone will be as glad to see you as I am.

Molly: Some things never change, do they? You still think the glass is half full even when it's been completely shattered.

Holden: I thought you said I was cynical.

Molly: It must have been rough for you, coming home from an ordeal like that to find her with someone else, especially him.

Holden: I'm dealing with it.

Molly: Yeah. It looks to me like you could use some looking after yourself.

Holden: So, does that mean I don't have to carry you out to the car?

Molly: I'll go willingly, sheriff.

Holden: All right. Go get packed. Put some clothes on.

Molly: Yeah. Sure thing. I'll just be a minute.

Jack: Thank you for letting us use the museum database.

Man: Let me know if you need anything else.

Jack: We will. Find anything?

Carly: Not yet. This is a list of the registered dealers. None of them sounds like Simon.

Jack: Obviously, he's not gonna use his real name.

Carly: Obviously. He spent a good long time creating his aliases. I knew most of them.

Jack: Any of them look familiar?

Carly: Not yet.

[Cell phone ringing]

Carly: Janet?

Jack: Yeah.

Carly: Don't be an idiot.

Jack: Can I call you back?

Janet: You won't.

Jack: I promise.

Janet: Jack, where are you?

Jack: Pittsburgh.

Janet: Why?

Jack: Janet, I'm in the middle of something.

Janet: Well, can you tell me what it is?

Jack: I'll talk to you later, okay?

Janet: Jack, this is important.

Jack: Something wrong?

Janet: I just saw Katie.

Jack: How is she?

Janet: Not good. She is overwhelmed taking care of the baby all by herself and she won't take help from anybody.

Jack: Well, what can I do?

Janet: Well, Katie told me to tell you to come home. Maybe you can get through to her. Nobody else can.

Jack: I'll be there as soon as I can.

Janet: What are you doing?

Jack: I can't explain that right now.

Janet: Then when?

Jack: Janet, I'll talk to you later.

Janet: Jack!

Carly: Good for you.

Jack: Find anything?

Carly: Yeah, actually. So, Bartley Symington.

Jack: One of Simon's aliases?

Carly: One of his all-time faves.

Jack: You're sure it's him?

Carly: I can't think there'd be two.

Jack: Let's find out.

Dusty: Let me guess, you spoke to Jack?

Janet: Not now, please.

Dusty: Sure.

Janet: What are you doing?

Dusty: I'm just sitting here.

Katie: Why, why, are you crying? And why did I let Janet go? She's such a good mom! She could figure this out! I don't know how she raised Liberty alone, I really don't, because without your daddy here, I'm sorry, baby, I am trying so hard, but I don't know if I can do it!

Henry: Listen, tell your boss I got the message and I won't say a word against him and that my memory loss is complete! It's irreversible!

Brad: What's going on, Henry?

Henry: Oh, would you get out of here?

Man: What did you say?

Brad: Tell him you're not afraid of him.

Henry: What are you, crazy? I'm sorry. I'm not talking to you right now. I'm sorry.

Man: I'm the only one here.

Brad: Tell him, Henry!

Henry: Actually, you're not. My friend here, he's a ghost. If you're gonna do something, now would be the time!

Brad: I don't know how!

Henry: What? You're just thinking of that now? Please, just hear me out, okay? Ooh.

Brad: I did it.

Henry: You did it!

Brad: I moved it, Henry! I moved it!

Henry: I know, I know! I was right here! I saw it! How did you do it?

Brad: I don't know! It just happened! It didn't work before with Katie, but I just did it now!

Henry: Ah. Not so tough now are we, tough guy? Go tell your boss Henry Coleman will see him in court!

Brad: We have to go see Katie.

Henry: Brad, will you let go of me, please?

Brad: You feel that?

Henry: Yes, I feel that.

Brad: You feel that?

Henry: Yes, I feel that. Stop, stop.

Brad: Sorry.

Henry: What's different?

Brad: I don't know. It just happened, you know. But we have to get to Katie before it stops.

Henry: What do you mean, "We"? A restraining order, remember?

Brad: I don't care about that.

Henry: Of course you don't care about it, but some of us can't walk through walls, Brad!

Brad: If it stops working, you have to tell her about the vase!

Henry: She won't believe me!

Brad: Well, we have to try.

Henry: Fine. But when the time comes, you better figure out how to unlock jail cells, okay?

Katie: Jacob, come on, baby! Please, stop!

[Doorbell rings]

Katie: Janet! Oh, thank God! Thank god you came back! Are you out of your mind? What the hell are you doing here?

Henry: Katie, listen.

Katie: Get away from me now or I will call the police!

Henry: Katie!

Dusty: We need to talk about your sister.

Janet: What about her?

Dusty: She's in trouble.

Janet: What kind of trouble?

Dusty: Well, she's scared to testify against your uncle. He's threatening her if she does.

Janet: I can't deal with this right now.

Dusty: You want to see Ralph go free?

Janet: What does it matter? It won't bring Bradley back. The bullet won't go back into Jack's gun.

Dusty: Jack and I have had our differences, but I know what he would say to Teri if he were here. So do you.

Janet: Well, he's not here.

Dusty: Well, then, somebody else has to do it. Somebody she can trust to be on her side all the way.

Carly: The poster on that art scene website said the benefit is for the greater Pittsburgh community food bank.

Jack: You sure he'll be there?

Carly: A gallery full of people, rich people, ready to give away their money? If Simon is within like a 500-mile radius, he'll be there, seducing the ladies and their daughters.

Jack: I know how he operates.

Carly: Anyway, I'm sure there's a guest list inside, and I'll bet you a jelly doughnut the name Bartley Symington is on it.

Molly: I don't know. I really thought this time was working out. I had a job I loved. I had friends. I know I shouldn't have gotten involved with a married man, but he swore to me he was gonna leave his wife. He said that we were soul mates.

Holden: Where have I heard that before?

Molly: I know. I should have known better. I just can't seem to take "Yes" for an answer, you know? Every time I have a good thing going.

Holden: He was the sleazebag, not you.

Molly: No, Holden. I threw myself into it. I bought every little line that jerk sold me, and then, of course, I had to go postal and lose my job.

Holden: You never were able to hold back from anything. I'm sorry. Is there something I can do for you?

Man: You're that TV reporter, right?

Molly: That's right. You from New York?

Man: I was there a few nights ago. I heard there's naked pictures of you and that congressman.

[Molly groans]

Man: No offense, but are they on the internet?

Holden: You know what? Why don't you take a walk while you still can?

Man: I said "No offense."

Molly: Now I know why Carly called you.

Holden: You don't deserve to be disrespected like that.

Molly: I appreciate that, Holden. I really do. But if you insist on bringing me and my baggage back to Oakdale, you better get used to it. Watching you stand up for me like that really brought back memories.

Holden: For me, too.

Molly: Is that really how you want to live your life? Because if you bring me back to Oakdale, it can turn into a full-time job.

Holden: Because of your baggage.

Molly: Yeah.

Holden: You know what? I can deal with your baggage if you can deal with mine.

Janet: Hi.

Teri: Janet, what are you doing here?

Janet: Dusty told me about Uncle Ralphy's letter.

Teri: Well, he shouldn't have. This is my problem. It's not yours.

Janet: Hey, we're family. It's not just your problem or my problem. It's our problem. And besides, you were right. I fell for his schtick, too, all that hugging, kissing, and pasta. We're suckers for that stuff, aren't we?

Teri: Yeah. Hey, how did you know I was gonna be here? I told you I wasn't gonna testify.

Dusty: I had faith.

Teri: Still, I'm not sure about this, Janet.

Janet: Oh, I am.

Teri: What if he comes after you or, God forbid, Liberty?

Janet: Hey, he comes after one Ciccone girl, he comes after all of us.

Teri: Are you sure?

Janet: All his talk about family, we'll show him what family really means.

[Doorbell rings]

Henry: You didn't call the police.

Katie: Because all they would hear is the baby.

Henry: What's wrong?

Katie: He won't stop crying.

Henry: You look like you're ready to drop, Sweetheart.

Katie: No, I'm fine.

Brad: Oh, here we go again.

Henry: Do you want me to hold him?

Brad: Say yes, please, Katie! Say yes!

Katie: Okay.

[Baby crying]

Brad: Make sure you support his head.

Katie: Make sure you support his head.

Henry: I raised my sisters, remember? I've held a baby before.

Brad: Be careful.

Katie: Be careful.

Henry: Will you two relax? Both of you? Both you and Jacob, just relax and sit down, okay?

Katie: Okay, yeah.

Henry: I'll see if I can get him to stop crying. Then we can all relax.

Brad: Look how tired she is.

Henry: Come on, little guy. Enough with the screaming already.

[Crying stops]

Katie: How did you do that?

Henry: I told you, I've done this before. Why don't you go inside and lay down for a little bit, all right?

Katie: Are you sure?

Henry: Absolutely.

Katie: Yeah. Maybe I'll just take like five minutes.

Henry: Take ten.

Katie: Oh, he likes "Get along, little dogies." Brad's mom used to sing it to him, so I sing it to Jacob.

Henry: "Get along, little dogies" it is. Go, go.

Brad: "Get along, little dogies." I think it's sweet. It's adorable! All right, shut up and sing it.

Henry: I don't know it.

Brad: Are you kidding?

Henry: What about Audrey makes you think that she used to sing cowboy songs to me? Come on.

Brad: Okay. Just follow me. Okay.

[They sing]

I woke up one morning went walking for pleasure

I woke up one morning went walking for pleasure

I spied a cowpuncher riding along

I spied a cowpuncher riding along

His hat was thrown back and his spurs were a-jingling

His hat was thrown back and his spurs were a-jingling

Whoopie-ti-yi-yo get along you little dogies

Jack: Is this really necessary?

Carly: You look like you've been sleeping in your car.

Jack: It's not that bad. Seats fold all the way back.

Carly: Well, you can't crash a charity benefit at a fancy art gallery looking like that.

Jack: Well, you don't exactly look like you're ready to go to a formal occasion yourself.

Carly: I brought something with me. Did you?

Jack: More jeans and t-shirts.

Man: Hi. Can I help you?

Carly: Please, yes. We need a suit. Something tasteful, elegant, conservative, is a must.

Man: Try right over here.

Carly: Oh, that's very nice.

Jack: It is very nice. 2,000 bucks? My last suit cost a tenth of that, seriously.

Man: I don't doubt it. Suit Warehouse is right down the street.

[Jack laughs]

Carly: Do you want to find Simon or not?

Jack: We don't even know he's gonna be there for sure.

Carly: Do you have any better ideas? Jack, if you want rich people to accept you, you have to try to look like you're one of them.

Jack: Carly, I'm not rich. I'm unemployed. And I'm not gonna spend two grand on a suit.

Carly: Well, you don't have to pay for it.

Jack: What? Steal it?

Carly: Of course not!

Jack: I'm not gonna let you buy me a $2,000 suit!

Carly: I'm not gonna buy it either. Whoops. I guess I forgot to give this back to Craig.

Jack: Excuse me, my friend. You're right. This suit is nice, but do you have anything for, say, $4,000?

Jack: Tell me again how we had to get dressed up for this? People are in jeans.

Carly: How do your $500 shoes feel?

Jack: I'm never taking them off. See our boy?

Carly: Not yet.

Ella: Hello. Welcome to the food bank benefit. I'm Ella Vandenberg.

Carly: Hello. I'm Carina Morgan. This is my husband, Richardson. Not the banking Morgans, the internet Morgans. We just moved here to Pittsburgh. We love it so much. We're still decorating our country home as well as our apartment and we'd like to mix in some local artists with the masters.

Jack: And it's such a great cause.

Carly: Yes, well, Richardson is a great believer in helping those less fortunate, especially in these troubled times. He's worked extensively with Feeding America. Haven't you, Darling? I'm so proud of you. And he's also worked with the food centers in Greenville.

Jack: In Philadelphia. That's right. Yes, and we've just visited your food bank here. Very impressed. We'd like to support your cause in any way you can.

Ella: All you have to do is buy something.

Carly: We plan to. As a matter of fact, we were just looking here at this. This artist is very intriguing.

Ella: Oh. He's one of Pittsburgh's rising stars.

Jack: Talented fellow.

Ella: We have three of his works already.

Man: I'm Peter Dell, and this is my wife, Marcy.

Carly: Carina and Richardson Morgan.

Ella: The internet Morgans.

Man: You're new to the area?

Carly: Just moved here. Still decorating.

Man: You should talk to our dealer, Bartley Symington. He's already found us a Campobello. I'm sure he can get you whatever you want.

Jack: Yes, I'm sure he can. Is he here?

Man: He's right over -- that's strange. He was standing right there a minute ago.

[Katie dreaming]

Katie: Brad?

Brad: Hello, baby. Hi, baby.

Katie: I can see you.

Brad: Well, I hope you can see me. I'm here.

Katie: Oh, I can feel your kiss.

Brad: I hope so.

Katie: So, you're really here.

Brad: I'm sorry that I was gone so long, but I'm here, and I'm not leaving. So, how's our little boy?

Katie: Oh, Brad, he's beautiful, isn't he? And look. He's so peaceful. Finally.

Brad: I hear he's been giving you some problems.

Katie: Nothing I can't handle.

Brad: You can handle anything, but you're not gonna have to do it alone, because we're gonna do it together.

Katie: Brad? Brad? I thought you were gonna wake me.

Henry: I didn't want to wake him.

Katie: Here, I'll take him.

Henry: I have to go testify against Ralph Manzo. I want to make sure that everybody who's ever hurt you gets put behind bars.

Katie: Except you.

Katie sings: Whoopie-ti-yi-yo get along you little doggies it's your misfortune none of my own whoopie-ti-yi-yo get along you little doggies for you know Wyoming will be your new home.

Janet: I'll be right back.

Teri: Okay. Hey. Thanks for bringing my sister over here.

Dusty: After all the things this guy did to you, I want to see him pay.

Teri: Oh, so it's just about you.

Dusty: Yeah. Always. Always about me.

Teri: Whatever you say.

Janet: They're ready for you.

Teri: Will you go in with me?

Janet: You just try and keep me out.

Holden: Why are you so quiet?

Molly: I'm still not sure that going back to Oakdale's such a great idea.

Holden: I wouldn't worry about it.

Molly: I don't care if Lily's married or not. She won't be thrilled.

Holden: That's Lily's problem. It's not mine. It's not yours.

Molly: No. Holden, you're in the middle of a giant custody battle. You've got all kinds of issues. When she sees me, your problems are gonna be worse.

Holden: I don't know why you're so worried about Lily. She's not the only one that's gonna be unhappy to see you once you get back in Oakdale.

Molly: Oh, that makes me feel better. Thanks.

Holden: I'm just saying.

Molly: It's just not quite the triumphant return I always imagined.

Holden: Well, for whatever it's worth, I'm glad you're coming home. Don't ask me why, but I missed you.

Molly: Don't ask me why, but I missed you, too.

Carly: He's gone.

Jack: Must have seen us. Scotch, rocks, please. You want something?

Carly: I'll pass.

Jack: Right, sorry. Two club sodas.

Carly: At least we know he's here.

Jack: Yeah, and he knows we're here, which means he's probably miles away by now.

Carly: Probably.

Jack: Any idea where he might go?

Carly: It could be anywhere.

Jack: Could you be a little more specific?

Carly: Well, Jack, you tried. You did your best. Your wife needs you. Your kids need you. Katie and Jacob, they need you.

Jack: I found him once. I can find him again.

Carly: Do you remember that?

Jack: How could I forget?

Carly: The bar on the roof.

Jack: Piano player just kept playing it over and over again.

Carly: I thought it was the only song you knew.

Jack: It was the only one we needed.

Simon: Mind if I cut in?

Next week on "As the World Turns" --

Jack: You have no idea how happy I would be to use this right now.

Carly: Jack!

Jack: Give me a reason, please!

Molly: Hello, Lily. It's been a long time.

Lily: You ran out in the middle of everything to get her?

Brad: I am telling you to stop it!
