Mick: There were women giving birth who were in their 60s. And it's not an empirical conclusion yet, but I can't help but feel that this serum helped them to conceive and carry a child to term when conventional wisdom and science would have said otherwise.

Emily: I've wanted another child for a very long time. Do you know what I'm asking?

Mick: All I need is your permission.

Emily: And you would start me on a course of treatments?

Mick: As long as I have your informed consent.

Paul: Okay, all right, stop. That's enough. Mick, you need to back off.

[Hunter whistles]

Alison: Hunter. What brings you here?

Hunter: I have a proposition for you.

Alison: Moi?

Hunter: The paper's looking for someone to write a relationship blog for the website.

Alison: And you thought of me?

Hunter: Yeah.

Alison: Hunter, I'm a nurse. I'm -- I'm not a writer.

Hunter: Well, I thought that you'd have tons to say, since you've had tons of relationships. Oh, that came out so wrong.

Alison: No, no. "Tons" is accurate.

Hunter: Oh, I just put my whole foot in my mouth. I'm so sorry.

Alison: Don't worry about it, Hunter.

Hunter: I really am sorry.

Alison: No, it's -- it's fine. Anything else?

Hunter: No. I -- I think I've done my job here.

[Indistinct conversation]

Maddie: What are you doing? Stop!

[Molly sighs]

Molly: Thank you.

Holden: So, I get the feeling that things did not go so well in California.

Molly: It was awkward, yeah. We were supposed to go to Abigail's friend's house for Thanksgiving dinner, and just as we were about to walk out the door, Abby changed her mind.

Holden: What did she say?

Molly: She wanted to stay home, just the two of us.

Holden: Well, maybe she wanted to spend some more time with her mother.

Molly: Yeah, right. No. She wanted to make sure that her mom's affair wasn't the prime topic of conversation at the dinner table, and I can't really blame her.

Holden: Oh, come on. You don't really believe that, do you?

Molly: Holden, I saw her on a gossip website, looking at all the latest news of what happened between her mom and the congressman.

Holden: Sorry.

Molly: That's okay. I kind of asked for it.

Holden: All right. You know what? That's enough. Pity party over.

Molly: You're kicking me out?

Holden: No, I am taking you out. Come on.

Lily: Well, this is interesting.

Damian: Let me explain what this is, Lily.

Meg: Okay, Damian, I know this is awkward, but it's better for both of us that it's out there.

Damian: T -- there's no "It," and nothing it out!

Meg: Damian, your wife doesn't want to be lied to. Just tell her the truth.

Damian: The truth is that your behavior is embarrassing, Meg.

Meg: Really?

Damian: You know -- I have tried -- I've tried to be patient, and I've tried to remain your friend, but clearly, that's not possible. You're unbalanced, you need help, and you need to leave.

Meg: Damian, don't try --

Damian: Don't to try to what, Meg, huh? You let yourself into this house, and before I know it, you're in -- you're in my wife's bedroom, taking your clothes off. I was about to change my shirt, and now what? Were you trying to use all that to try to convince Lily that I was about to what, have sex with you, in her bedroom, in our bed?

Meg: Damian, how can you do this?

Damian: Did you really think that you can just do a strip tease and I would fall in bed with you? I love Lily. I married Lily and had vows that mattered to me with Lily. This -- is a fantasy in your head, and itís sick.

Lily: Damian, maybe you should --

Damian: No, Lily, you know what? Please, I will not talk to you when she's in this house.

Meg: Damian!

Damian: Let's go right now, Meg.

Holden: See? Not one cross-eyed look from anyone yet.

Molly: Yeah, give it time. My scarlet "A" follows me pretty closely, you know? See? I was right. That guy's not even being subtle about it. Yes, you know what? It's me, in the flesh. What do you want, a picture? Maybe with our arms around each other even, so you can post it on some website and upgrade your status? "Look who I saw, dudes. Molly Conlon, whore of the week, right?"

Man: Mr. Snyder?

Holden: Yes?

Man: I was wondering if you were still selling horses.

Holden: [Laughs] I certainly am. What can I do for you?

Molly: Oh.

[Holden laughs]

Paul: Mick, we've been through this. I'm not gonna let you use my family, not my mother, certainly not my wife, as your human sacrifice.

Emily: Paul --

Paul: We are bankrolling this project, and that's all. That's it.

Emily: I brought it up.

Paul: I don't care. You're not doing it.

Emily: "You're not doing it"? Since when do you tell me what I can and can't do?

Paul: Since right now.

Emily: Really?

Mick: Paul, I'm sorry that this came up again. I mean it.

Paul: If it happens again, I'm gone, and I'm taking my money with me.

Mick: I understand.

Paul: Could you leave? I'd really like to talk to Emily alone, please.

Mick: Okay, but the FDA application --

Paul: No, stop, stop. No, not -- not now.

Mick: I'm sorry.

Emily: I'm sorry. You are overreacting, as usual.

Paul: Stop. Look, I want nothing more than for you to be the mother of my children. But I'm not gonna let you risk your life to do it, and you're not doing this anymore. I won't let you.

Barbara: Here. Drink this.

Henry: It's like a triple.

Barbara: Yes, it is.

[Henry groans]

Barbara: Better? Good. Then tell me something. Besides stalking hallways and talking to yourself, are you doing anything to relieve all this tension that you're feeling?

Henry: You mean like exercise?

Barbara: Yes, like exercise.

Henry: No, not -- not really.

Barbara: You know -- oh, my. You're like -- you're like a brick wall in there.

Henry: Yeah, it's -- it's a little blocked up back there.

Barbara: Wow! I'm just so surprised, 'cause, you know, it wasn't that long ago that you were so free, so open, so adventurous.

Henry: It feels like a lifetime ago.

Barbara: Sense memory can be a very powerful tool, Henry.

[Knock on door]

Barbara: Shucks.

Henry: I'm sorry. Uh, are you -- are you expecting someone?

Barbara: No. No, I'm not. I'm going to ignore that door completely.

Henry: Yeah, actually, you know, it could be something important. I think we should go ahead and check on it. [Clears throat]

Mick: Henry Coleman.

Henry: Do I know you?

Mick: Mick Dante. And I know you from TV.

Barbara: Mr. Dante, my friend and I were in the middle of something.

Henry: Actually, Barbara, its -- its fine. I -- I have something to do. Um, uh, thank you so much for the drink, though.

Mick: Bad timing?

Hunter: Hi.

Maddie: Hi. You look happy.

Hunter: Leonidas has been looking for Ladyhawke. Where has she been?

Maddie: Oh. I'm living in the real world the last couple of days. Sorry.

Hunter: Yeah, it kind of sucks out here, doesn't it?

Maddie: Ow! You're in a mood.

Hunter: Yeah, sorry. Can I ask you a question?

Maddie: I'm not sure.

Hunter: It's not that kind of question. The paper that I write for is looking for a new person to write an online column about relationships.

Maddie: Oh.

Hunter: Yeah, and they're looking for someone new, someone with a unique voice, someone who can grab people's attention, you know?

Maddie: Okay. I -- I think I see where you're going with this. So kind of like a younger, hipper Candace Bushnell.

Hunter: Who's Candace Bushnell?

Maddie: Oh, never mind. So, what made you think of asking me?

Hunter: Uh, you know, I was wondering if you'd help me come up with some ideas on how I could convince Alison to do it.

Alison: Oh. We keep doing this.

Casey: Probably gonna happen more often now that I'm on staff here.

Alison: You got your job back?

Casey: Different one. I'm an orderly now. What? I -- I asked you the other day if there's any jobs opening. You know, you told me to go to H.R. don't act like this is news.

Alison: What, and this is the absolute, only place in town where you can get a job, Casey?

Casey: You have a problem with me working here?

Alison: You know, why don't you just get yourself assigned to like a -- another floor, or wing, or, you know, building?

Casey: [Laughs] That is nuts! You can't work in the same building as me?

Alison: I think that I am here to help people.

Casey: And so am I.

Alison: Maybe, yeah, or you're just here to give me a hard time.

Casey: You're giving yourself way too much credit.

Alison: Am I?

Meg: How can you do this to me?

Damian: Meg, I need you out of this house now.

Meg: So it's been all lies? Is that what you're telling me?

Damian: Don't be a fool. I'm doing this for a reason.

Meg: What reason?

Damian: Just go to the Lakeview and wait for me there.

Meg: What?

Damian: So we can continue what Lily interrupted.

Lily: Damian?

Damian: I said out of this house now!

Lily: You're still here?

Damian: Now! I'm -- I'm so sorry, Lily. This was a horrible way to end a holiday. I don't know what got into her. I -- I had no idea she was so desperate. I mean, she thinks that I would leave you for her.

Lily: Maybe you gave her a reason to think that. Did you, Damian? Did you tell her that you'd come back to her?

Damian: I promised Meg nothing. She's living in a fantasy world.

Lily: She seemed pretty confident when she was standing in my bedroom with nothing between the two of you but her bra.

Damian: No, no, no. She thought everything would change when her brother came back, but -- she somehow convinced herself that you will end up with Holden and I would just fall into her arms, Lily.

Lily: You had nothing to do with this little fantasy world whatsoever?

Damian: Of course not.

Lily: [Sighs] Then you shouldn't have let her go.

Damian: Why?

Lily: Because now I'm gonna have to find her if I'm gonna pull the hair out of her head, strand by strand.

Damian: No, no, no. Lily, Lily, I'll go. I -- I just want her out of your house.

Lily: What are you gonna tell her that you haven't said already?

Damian: Don't worry. I'm gonna settle this once and for all.

[Lily sighs]

Paul: Emily, I love you. That's why I'm not gonna let you risk your life for some anti-aging formula that now all of the sudden is this super fertility drug.

Emily: You know what? Back up. You signed over a huge pot of gold for this experiment.

Paul: Yeah, that was before I knew that Dante was gonna sucker you and my mom into being his own clinical guinea pigs.

Emily: "Sucker"? Well, then, why did you give him the money in the first place?

Paul: Because it was a business decision. This is a health issue. Emily, think about it. What if it was a newspaper story? You'd say, "Oh, yeah. No, no, this is fine. I know enough about this." Or would you want the guy to do research till he was blue in the face to make sure that the formula was right and that this guy was aboveboard?

Emily: All right! Okay, I hear you, all right? Look what you did. Oh! Did your loud daddy wake you up?

Nanny: I don't know why she won't stay asleep. But I think she wants her daddy.

Paul: Come here. Hi, Eliza. Hello.

Emily: I'm gonna, um, run a few errands. Um, I'll be back.

Paul: No, no, no, no. Come on, don't do that. Stay here. Hang out with us for a little bit.

Emily: No, you heard what your nanny said. She wants her -- her daddy.

Paul: Emily, don't do that.

Emily: It's okay. I'm -- I'm not. I'm, uh -- I'm okay. And, uh, I heard you loud and clear.

Barbara: So, you line up your needles and your vials, and you expect me to roll up my sleeve and let you plunge a needle into a vein?

Mick: I assure you, I know what I'm doing. And this is the original formula. You know the results it can bring. You saw it for yourself.

Barbara: Perhaps, but this does not look very clinical or scientific, let alone safe.

Mick: I'd like for you to take a leap of faith with me, Barbara. I can't force you to, but I want you to.

Barbara: And what about what I want?

Mick: I think that you want to feel younger and more importantly stay healthy. I think that I'm offering you something that has been proven to provide both.

Barbara: [Scoffs] From the start, Mr. Dante, I have not appreciated your familiarity with who you think I am or what you think I want.

Mick: But am I wrong?

Barbara: It's just that this is a little out there.

Mick: Yes, but you're used to that. Look at the chance you took when you married James Stenbeck.

Barbara: You wait a damn minute. How do you know anything about my marriage to James?

Maddie: What makes you think that I know what's going on in Alison's head?

Hunter: Why are you mad at me?

Maddie: Why do you think that I want to help you with her? Man. Oh, save me, save me.

Henry: What, who, from Hunter?

Maddie: Yeah. He's clueless, about everything.

Henry: Uh, doesn't he like that whole virtual-reality, online stuff, just like you do?

Maddie: Yeah, but I have a life out here. He doesn't.

Henry: Don't you two get it on online?

Maddie: "Get it on"? What are you, like 100?

Henry: Well?

Maddie: Well, please. No, our avatars connect online, but that's it. Out here, me, him, no, no. And I'm with Casey anyway.

Henry: Really?

Maddie: Mm-hmm.

Henry: Well, I haven't seen him around.

Maddie: He's busy.

Henry: Uh-huh. Okay. If you're sure, I'm sure.

Maddie: I am, thanks.

Henry: So, the, um, virtual-reality love-in -- there's no crossover?

Maddie: No, hmm-mm, no. That would kind of be like having one foot here and one foot in the afterlife, you know?

Henry: Yeah, yeah, I do.

Alison: Davy, this isn't my idea. It's your doctor's. You have to take these pills.

Davy: I don't have to do anything.

Alison: You do if you want to get out of here. Your doctor prescribed these pills because it will help clear up your infection.

Davy: Until the next one.

Alison: Davy, please, just --

Casey: Hey, let -- let me get these.

Alison: Casey --

Casey: Oh, yes, this is exactly what the doctor ordered, I swear.

Alison: Casey, what are you do -- oh, my God.

Casey: It's a -- [Choking]

Alison: Casey --

Casey: [gasping] [Laughs] No, I'm joking. It's fine.

[Both laughing]

Casey: Let's take these for real, see what they can do.

Davy: Okay, okay.

Casey: Hmm? Booya! Yes! There you go. Bam!

Meg: This better be good, because you have no idea how upset I am.

Damian: I'm sorry.

Meg: You're sorry? You humiliated me in front of Lily.

Damian: What choice did I have?

Meg: How about the truth? You tell her that we're together, and you end it right there.

Damian: I can't risk losing my son, no matter how strong my feelings are.

Meg: What in the world does Luke have to do with any of this?

Damian: Look, if I throw our relationship in Lily's face, she'll lash out. But if I lead her to believe that this is her idea --

Meg: Her idea?

Damian: Yes. She's always been conflicted about whether we should be together. It won't be hard to awaken Lily's doubts again. If she's the one backing out of the relationship, then my connection with my son isn't put at risk.

Meg: Do you know how horrible you made me feel?

Damian: It was just an act.

Meg: It still hurt. And I don't know about this plan of yours, Damian. I don't buy it. In fact, I don't buy anything you say at this point.

Damian: Well, then -- I'll have to do something about that.

Meg: Not this time. Even I have it figured out that you can sleep with me just to prove a point.

Damian: I want more than that, Meg. Don't you get it?

Meg: Do you?

Damian: Do you want proof? Move in here with me, right now?

Molly: Stop it. Stop that smirking. Stop. How was I supposed to know the guy just wanted to see the local horse trader? So, is he gonna buy a mule or what?

Holden: Despite your best efforts, I believe so.

Molly: Oh, thank God. I would hate myself if I thought you lost business because of me.

[Cell phone ringing]

Holden: Oh, great.

Molly: Aren't you gonna answer that?

Holden: It's Lily. I've already talked to her enough today.

Molly: What if it's about the kids?

[Holden sighs]

Molly: See? I don't think everything is about me.

Holden: Lily, hi. I'm out.

Lily: I need you to come over to the house. I think we have a really big problem.

Damian: Look, as soon as I settle this mess with Lily, this is where we'll live. This will be our place, starting now.

Meg: So you'll keep me hidden here?

Damian: I was thinking more along the lines of you keeping it warm for us.

Meg: You really mean this?

Damian: Of course.

Meg: Then why didn't you tell Lily the truth?

Damian: I told you why. I have to protect my relationship with my son. But I am committed to you. Look, I'm asking you to live with me. What more can I do to convince you, to prove myself to you?

Meg: What about what I kept you from doing a few minutes ago?

Emily: Hi.

Alison: Em, what are you doing here?

Emily: Uh, seeing a doctor.

Alison: A checkup?

Emily: Just some tests.

Alison: W -- why? What -- what, is something wrong? Are you okay?

Emily: No. Everything's fine. I'm just having some fertility tests.

Alison: You're having fish?

Emily: Yes, I am. End of story. I got to go.

Alison: No. Em, the -- the results aren't just gonna magically change from last time. Your eggs aren't viable. And I know that's horrible for you to face, but --

Emily: Actually, there's new research, Ali.

Alison: What kind of new research.

Emily: What Paul and I are financing with Mick Dante.

Alison: Are you serious?

Emily: If he can make my dream come true and give me a baby, you bet I am.

Mick: This is very sensitive work, Barbara. I do my homework.

Barbara: So I'm "Homework"?

Mick: Well, you're a very important part of your son's life. Paul is potentially about to become the majority investor in an upcoming trial with the FDA. knowing about the people that I work with is part of my vetting process.

Barbara: You vetted my health?

Mick: Your health history is important if you're going to be a participant in the trial.

Barbara: You have insinuated that you know more about my life, not just about my health, but about my personal life. Have you vetted that, as well? Is that a part of your job?

Mick: You are a strong, opinionated woman. That I know from our short interactions. I understand your concerns, but I assure you --

Barbara: I assure you that our work together is done.

Mick: Barbara, I think there's been a misunderstanding.

Barbara: Yes, there has. I never should have agreed to be a guinea pig in your research project, and I should have listened to myself about my first opinion of you.

Mick: Which was what?

Barbara: That you are taking my son and his money for a long ride.

Mick: Well, I'm sorry that -- that you feel that way. And, uh, I wish you'd reconsider. I believe in what I'm doing.

Barbara: I'm sure you do. Now get out.

[Mick groans]

Meg: That was incredible. Damian? Wasn't it?

Damian: Always. You must forgive me.

Meg: Hey --

Damian: I have to --

Meg: Hey --

Damian: Meg, if we want to pull this off --

Meg: I just don't want you to go.

Damian: Me neither, Sweetheart. But I have to. And you must let me work this out with Lily my way.

Meg: Okay. I hear you. Just promise me you'll come back later.

Damian: I have to get dressed.

[Meg sighs]

Meg: Well, don't mind me. I'll watch.

Lily: Thank you for coming over so quickly.

Holden: When it's about the kids, I drop everything. You know that.

Lily: I didn't say it was about the kids.

Holden: What? I just assumed that there was a problem. Lily, come on. If this is about Damian, whatever it is, don't drag me into it.

Lily: It's your sister.

Holden: What about her?

Lily: Meg's in trouble, Holden. You need to help her.

Holden: Did something happen to my sister?

Lily: She came into the house, and she snuck up on Damian.

Holden: Then what?

Lily: Well, at first, I just thought that she was lonely and -- and desperate, but, you know, she's been having such a hard time accepting that Damian is with me and not with her. But it goes beyond that. She's delusional. And that is dangerous when you have a young infant to look after.

Holden: You think my sister would neglect her own child?

Lily: If what I saw here today is any indication of what she's thinking, she already is. Holden, you know me. I wouldn't say something --

Damian: Cara, I think Meg will leave us alone now. I didn't know you were here.

Holden: This is about you two having problems with my sister? Come on, Lily! When is this gonna stop?

Alison: I introduced you to Mick because I thought his work was -- was innovative and interesting. But I didn't think you'd be the person he was testing his formula on.

Emily: Alison, stop, okay? Mick has been monitoring the effects of this substance for a very long time. And in the process, he's seen women have babies well into their 60s.

Alison: That's not normal.

Emily: It's a huge advance in medical science, Ali.

Alison: You think he can help you and Paul conceive a child? Is that what this is?

Emily: I -- I think it's worth looking into.

Alison: He's in the developmental stages of this, Em. I don't want you to be his guinea pig.

Emily: I am going to look at all of my options. How's that?

Alison: Look, I know 4/= how much you want another child.

Emily: Okay, if you believe that, don't lecture me, okay? You're starting to remind me of Mom. Please, please, okay? You're the one who brought Mick to me. I choose to believe it was for a reason. I got to go.

Casey: Careful. The -- the keys are gonna pop off if you press any harder.

Maddie: Hey. Sorry, I'm on a roll. What are you doing here?

Casey: I'm on break, and I didn't want to spend it at the hospital, 'cause maybe I would run into -- patients. You know? What -- uh, what roll are you on?

Maddie: Oh, it's an audition for a job -- uh, a blog for an online newspaper that pays.

Casey: Oh! What -- what's the topic?

Maddie: Relationships.

Casey: Like a -- like a "Dear Maddie" column?

Maddie: Yeah. I'd even let them call it that lame name if they give me the job.

Casey: At least you have experience in one kind of relationship.

Maddie: Hmm? With you, you mean?

Casey: Maybe, yeah, you know? Perfect.

Henry: Hello.

Barbara: Hello. I'm sorry. We were interrupted earlier.

Henry: It's okay.

Barbara: You left so quickly, I didn't even get a chance to invite you to dinner.

Henry: Barbara --

Barbara: You know, I just want to make you feel better, like I did earlier.

Henry: Barbara, we need to talk.

Barbara: Please. There's nothing heavy about a dinner invitation.

Henry: It is heavy for us. Look, I think you're beautiful, and you're very, very desirable, okay?

Barbara: But I'm also too old for you?

Henry: No, no. You're too close. You're my brother's mother.

Barbara: So this is about a mommy complex? Oh, dear God.

[Henry stammers]

Henry: Look, I'm a mess right now, okay? I can't even begin to think about anything even resembling a relationship.

Barbara: I see.

Henry: No, everything I said is true. You are very, very sexy, and I am a complete mess.

Barbara: And I have my answer.

Henry: You do hear me though, right?

Barbara: Loud and clear, Henry.

Alison: Hey. Uh, I'm on a break, and I don't really have a lot of time, but I needed to speak to you.

Mick: Hello, Alison.

Alison: I introduced you to Paul and Emily because I thought that your work sounded intriguing.

Mick: I thank you for that.

Alison: Are you all right?

Mick: Hmm-mm. It's a little headache. I'm fine.

Alison: Oh, have you had any more, uh, nosebleeds?

Mick: No. What were you saying?

Alison: Um, look, Emily has been let down too many times, but she still thinks she has a shot at carrying a child. A -- and if she does, no one would be happier than I would. But if you're just feeding her a line because you think --

Mick: I have faith in my work, Alison.

Alison: Well, your work also needs the money Paul and Emily have to offer. Just promise me that you won't use that and hurt my sister. Because if you do, I'll hurt you worse than that headache will.

[Cell phone rings]

Mick: I have to take this. Um, Mick Dante.

Barbara: It's Barbara Ryan.

Mick: Yes.

Barbara: By any chance, are you free to stop by my suite?

Mick: I'll be right there. I have to cut this short.

Alison: She's my sister, Mick. I have to look out for my family.

Mick: I'll treat her like she's part of mine.

Lily: Holden, don't twist this around.

Holden: Twist it? You call me over here and let me assume that there's a problem with our children and then tell me that my sister is a danger to her own child when she's really just a fly buzzing around your heads, and you want me to swat her away.

Lily: That is not true.

Holden: The hell it isn't. You want my sister out of your lives, you tell her. I don't want anything to do with it. As soon as possible, we need to get this custody arrangement settled. It's pretty clear the less that we speak to each other, the better off we are.

Damian: You asked Holden to help with Meg?

Lily: I didn't think she'd take no for an answer from you. Is that right?

Barbara: I am not always this indecisive.

Mick: You were decisive when you asked me to leave.

Barbara: Yes, well, um -- I reconsidered. I'm willing to have the injection.

Mick: Henry?

Barbara: Excuse me?

Mick: I don't mean to presume.

Barbara: Oh, yes, you do. And as for Henry, if I had this injection and woke up tomorrow morning looking like Angelina Jolie, he wouldn't even notice -- not Henry Coleman.

Mick: Yes, well, all I can say is that when you were his age, a woman of your beauty would not give Henry Coleman the time of day.

Barbara: And how would you know that?

Mick: I just know.

Barbara: You say that as if you were there.

Mick: Ready?

Paul: Meg --

Emily: Hi? Hi. I -- I got to go out of town for a couple of days. I'm working on a story for the paper.

Paul: We had a little argument. You taking an assignment out of town? Is that what's going on?

Emily: No, no. Of course not. I promise.

Paul: I'm sorry that I got angry about Mick. I love you. I don't ever want anything bad to happen to you.

Emily: Thank you.

Paul: You know what? I'll put her down in her crib, and then I'll come back, and I want to hear all about this assignment.

Emily: Okay. Good night. Mick, it's Emily. Listen, um, forget about what Paul said. I want to start the treatments as soon as I can.

Casey: I didn't know you were still here. I'm sorry.

Alison: Casey, stop it. I'm sorry. I overreacted to you working here again. And you were so great with that little kid, getting him to take his medicine. Thank you for that. I owe you.

Casey: You don't owe me, but thanks for saying that.

Alison: No, I -- I gave you a hard time because you have a job where I have a job, and -- and I had no right to do that. And we're adults. We can deal with this.

Casey: Okay.

Alison: Okay.

Casey: Good?

Alison: Good. So bye.

Casey: Bye.

Maddie: I was thinking, have you ever met a guy who's just totally clueless? I have. You know the one. He says he's looking for something special and different, but he doesn't see it staring him right back in his face. That's why I'm here. Let me set you straight. Good, right?

Hunter: It's excellent.

Maddie: Excellent.

Hunter: I am clueless. But now I see you right in -- in front of me. What?

Maddie: Oh, my God. Not seriously.

Hunter: But you just said --

Maddie: No, I didn't say it! I wrote it. It's for my blog, you dork. It's my audition piece for the job.

Hunter: Oh, I -- I just thought you might have felt badly or something.

Maddie: Oh, you're impossible.

Holden: Oh, boy.

Molly: Oh. It went that well with Lily, huh?

Holden: It wasn't about the kids.

Molly: Doesn't really surprise me.

Holden: Oh, really?

Molly: Holden, Lily isn't over you.

Holden: That's not what this is about. Let's eat this pie.

Molly: Fine by me. I love pie. So, um, what was it about?

Holden: You ready for this? She wants me to help her keep Meg away from her and Damian. Went into this whole song and dance about how Meg is going off the deep end, how she's having an emotional breakdown.

Molly: Do you think there's any truth in that?

Holden: No. I'll tell you something else, this whole thing is getting out of hand.

Meg: Hey.

Holden: Hey.

Meg: Later.

Holden: Maybe I should go talk to her.

Molly: No way. She will never spill it to you. But maybe I can help.

Holden: Really?

Molly: Yeah. There is nobody more qualified than yours truly when it comes to helping somebody who's fallen for the wrong guy. I'm on it.

Damian: I did everything I could to dissuade her. I hope it worked.

Lily: She say she'd leave you alone?

Damian: She didn't say a lot.

Lily: I cannot tell you how angry I am at her, but part of me feels sorry for her. She's lost, Damian.

Damian: Yeah, and a little desperate. I think we should be careful.

Lily: Of Meg? I -- I told Holden that I thought she was delusional, but do you think she could do something to us?

Damian: I'm sure it'll be all right. Cara, it has to be.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Janet: I begged you to come home, and you said no. But you didn't say no to Carly.

Parker: Do you expect me to believe that you drove halfway across the country for Janet?

Rosanna: I'm sorry --

Craig: This marriage is between us, you and me. This wedding is supposed to be about us, not Carly.

Rosanna: I know that.

Craig: And I'm sick of it.

Simon: There's absolutely nothing wrong with admitting you need a little bit of help.

Brad: She said no. Now, just -- just get out, man.
