[Carly remembering]

Carly: Go home to Rosanna. She's waiting for you.

Craig: I can't. You'll still be there. You'll be right in my head!

Carly: How is that my problem?! What is it you want me to do?

Craig: Sleep with me. Tonight, one last time. Let me put this behind us so we can just walk away from each other for good.

Jack: Careful.

Carly: Huh?

Jack: You can swallow one of those things.

Carly: Oh.

Jack: The pins in your mouth? Yeah. Wow. This is really getting to you, isn't it?

Carly: I -- I just want Rosanna's dress to be perfect.

Jack: You know, in some cultures, what you and Craig are doing -- it would be considered sadomasochism.

Carly: I'm not doing anything with Craig.

Jack: Not for his lack of trying.

Carly: I told you about that in confidence. I dealt with it, and with him.

Jack: I'm just saying, it's not every day that your ex-fiancé offers one last roll in the hay on the eve of his marriage to your sister.

Carly: Would you let it go?

Jack: I'm surprised that you could let it go, because just last night, you were all set to tell Rosanna about this.

Carly: I changed my mind, all right?

Jack: Why?

Carly: Because I -- I wasn't in the mood to see her heart break. Is that okay with you?

Jack: And what about when she broke yours?

[Knock on door]

Craig: Everybody decent?

Jack: Not anymore.

Johnny: Jack!

Jack: Hey, there, Johnny. How you doing?

Johnny: Daddy's marrying Rosanna today.

Jack: Yes, I heard about that. But I haven't seen the bride-to-be all morning. Perhaps she's getting cold feet.

Rosanna: [Gasps] Oh, Craig, no!

Janet: Okay, so come to the ceremony if you finish in time.

Teri: Listen, I -- I'll try, but, um, don't count on it. So don't save me a seat, okay?

Janet: Ah, don't worry. I won't be alone.

Teri: Oh, really? Anyone I know?

Janet: As a matter of fact, I'm going to the wedding with my husband. So listen, I will have my cell phone on me. If you need anything at all, just give me a holler. Okay, bye.

Liberty: So you're going to the wedding with Jack?

Janet: Uh -- he's my husband, Liberty.

Liberty: Right. Who treats you like dirt and killed my father.

Teri: Mmm! You are so good.

Dusty: Do all chefs self-congratulate?

Teri: When we kick butt, we do. And this -- this kicks butt. What are you doing here so early?

Dusty: I just wanted to check the books, see how we did last night.

Teri: Are you gonna stay for the reception?

Dusty: No.

Teri: Well, not as a guest, as our boss, just to kind of see how we do.

Dusty: You can fill me in later.

Teri: Well, you're gonna miss one heck of a meal.

Dusty: No doubt. Smells fantastic. Give me some of that.

Carly: Jack, why don't you take Johnny upstairs to Parker's room and help him get dressed?

Jack: Well, you don't have to hit me over the head. Johnny and I can take a hint. Come on, young man.

Craig: Thank you for doing that. I wanted to spend some time alone with you -- to apologize.

Carly: Don't apologize. Meet me at your hotel room.

Craig: What?

Carly: You heard me.

Jack: Hang on a second, kid. I'll see if Carly has cuff links for you.

Carly: Last chance.

Jack: Everything okay in here?

Carly: Uh-huh. Uh, Craig just left.

Jack: For good?

Carly: Johnny needs cuff links?

Jack: Yeah. I couldn't find a thing in Parker's room. That place is a mess. You understand that?

Carly: Okay, I'll handle it.

Jack: No, I -- I can run over to the house.

Carly: It's okay. I have to go out, anyway.

Jack: Now?

Carly: Yeah. Um, I have to get a gift for Rosanna. Something very special.

[Rosanna dreaming]

[Rosanna groans]

Craig: Rosanna? What is it?

Rosanna: Uh -- how did you get back so fast?

Craig: You're shaking. What's wrong?

Rosanna: Well, I just, uh, found something, and I guess you could say it startled me.

Craig: Huh? What was it?

Rosanna: The baby's footprints -- the ones that the nurse gave us of Gwen's baby.

Craig: Our baby. What about the footprints?

Rosanna: I had a feeling, but now I -- I know.

Craig: What do you know?

Rosanna: I know what you've done, Craig. I know. I've got to get away from you. I've got to get away from you. [Gasps]

Craig: Why, Rosanna? I mean, come on. This isn't doing either one of us any good. Now pull the car over, and let me talk to you.

Rosanna: No. That's what you said before, when I was driving, and -- and it's what you said right before I crashed.

Craig: Don't run away again, Rosanna. You have to trust me. You have to trust me.

Rosanna: No! No! Craig, no! No! Aah! Let go of me! '

Jack: Rosanna, come here. Look at me. Look at me. You were having a bad dream.

Rosanna: I'm sorry, Jack.

Jack: No, it's okay. Are you okay?

Rosanna: Yeah, I'm good. I was just dreaming about the crash. It was -- it was awful.

Jack: I can imagine. Do you remember much of it? The dream, I mean?

Rosanna: Well, I was -- I was driving. It was just like before, only I was -- I was wearing my wedding dress. Thank you. And Craig -- he was -- he was behind me, but he wasn't behind me in the car, like before. He was in the back seat, and he was talking, and he was telling me to trust him. And I -- I looked in the rearview mirror, and I saw his eyes, and they were like headlights. They were blinding me. And I swerved, and I -- I went off the road. Doesn't take Dr. Freud to figure that one out, does it?

Jack: You have these dreams often?

Rosanna: More than I'd like.

Jack: Perhaps you should give them a little more weight than you do.

Rosanna: What do you mean, Jack?

Jack: Well, I'm, uh -- I'm not one for shrink talk or anything, but if your subconscious is trying to tell you something, I -- I think maybe you should listen.

Rosanna: No, I'm marrying Craig today.

Jack: No, I know. I know that.

Rosanna: But you still think I'm making a mistake, don't you?

Jack: I'm not saying a thing. I just want you to be happy.

Rosanna: Craig is not the same man that drove me off the road that night.

Jack: Yes, he is. But it's up to you to decide whether or not that's okay. Johnny's here. I'm gonna help him get ready.

Rosanna: Okay. Thank you. Where's Carly?

Jack: She, uh -- she stepped out for a bit, but she's gonna be back soon.

Rosanna: Jack, can I just ask you something, just for the sake of argument? Are you the same man that you were when you got married?

Jack: No.

Rosanna: Okay. Then -- you can see that people can change.

Jack: I'm worse.

Liberty: I just think you're asking for trouble, going to this wedding with Jack.

Janet: I'm not asking for your opinion, Liberty.

Liberty: Yeah, I told you, I'm not gonna sit back and watch you get hurt.

Janet: And I told you my marriage is none of your business. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get to the restaurant and help Teresa.

Liberty: Okay, I just -- there's one thing before you go.

Janet: If it's about Jack, forget about it.

Liberty: No, it's not. It's not. It's -- it's about me. I -- decided that I'm not gonna go to college.

Janet: What?!

Liberty: And I'm dropping out of high school.

Janet: What?!

Liberty: And I know you're not gonna support me. That's why I'm getting a job and taking care of myself.

Janet: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Back up, back up. Before you lost your baby, you were dead set on getting an abortion because you wanted to finish high school and go to college with all your friends. What changed?

Liberty: Mom, my whole life changed, actually.

Janet: You don't think I know that?

Liberty: Which made my plans change.

Janet: So what, you decided to become a high school dropout?

Liberty: Stop with the drama, Mom, really.

Janet: Listen -- no, Liberty, I understand that you're going through a tough time, okay? But this is unacceptable. You have to go to college, for yourself and to honor your father.

Liberty: He's gone, Mom. He's gone, and I can't do it. I can't.

Janet: Liberty Louisa Ciccone, if you walk out that door -- Liberty!

Teri: Sounds to me like you are not so big on weddings.

Dusty: Not big on ceremonies in general.

Teri: Yeah, yeah. Who wants to be tied down, right?

Dusty: No. It's not that.

Teri: So what, you're just not that much of a sentimentalist?

Dusty: Believe it or not, I used to be, with one girl.

Teri: Really?

Dusty: Oh, yeah. But things change when you grow up. You'll see.

Teri: Wait -- is that how you see me, like some kind of kid?

Dusty: I'm just busting your chops, "T." Aw, come on. What is it now? You quit.

Teri: No. I just -- I have to get basil, and it can't look like seaweed.

Dusty: I'll get it for you.

Teri: Really? But, Dusty, it has to be basil, not cilantro, not parsley, and it has to be über-fresh.

Dusty: I'll go to the farmers market, okay -- Kid?

[Janet sobs]

Dusty: Janet?

Janet: Oh -- I know. I'm late. Go ahead. Fire me. Be the cherry on my sundae.

Dusty: Fire you? What's with you Ciccone women? I don't get it.

Janet: Oh! [Sobs]

[Knock on door]

Craig: So, what happened between last night and this morning?

Carly: I changed my mind. I hope that's not gonna be a problem.

Janet: I just had such high hopes for Liberty. I wanted her to have every opportunity that I never had.

Dusty: She's still got it.

Janet: Not if she drops out of high school.

Dusty: Well, maybe it's just a phase.

Janet: Right. She hates my husband, she's decided to give up on her education, and she's using her father's death as an excuse to give up on herself.

Dusty: Maybe she needs time.

Janet: Maybe she needs a spanking.

Dusty: Well, it will all work out.

Janet: Gee, thanks.

Dusty: It will.

Janet: So what am I supposed to do, just think of rainbows and butterflies?

Dusty: Most people think that when they see me.

Carolers: Deck the hall with boughs of holly fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la.

Janet: Did you pay them to do that?

Dusty: No. You think if I pay them, they'll go away?

Janet: Stop it! When Liberty was a kid, she loved this stuff.

Dusty: Well, things change when you grow up. Fantasies just kind of crumble apart, you know?

Janet: I know.

Carolers: Troll the ancient yuletide carol fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la.

Janet: They're not stopping.

Dusty: Well, you're encouraging them, I think.

Janet: What do you mean, I'm -- joy to the world the lord is come let earth receive

Janet: Come on, Dusty. Try it out.

Dusty: No, no. I don't know this one.

Janet: Come on. Yes, you do.

Dusty: No, I don't.

Janet: Let every heart prepare. Come on, come on.

Dusty: No, no!

Janet: You can do it, Dusty.

Dusty: No, no way. And heaven and nature sing and heaven and nature sing and heaven and heaven and nature sing joy to the world.

Jack: You know how you know you're a man? You get to wear a real tie. I wore a clip-on till I was about 18. Promise me something, and I know you can handle this -- try not to grow up too fast. Stay a kid as long as you can. Rosanna -- she's gonna be able to help you with that. She's gonna be a great mom.

Johnny: Daddy says we're gonna be a family now.

Jack: Yeah, you are. And family is really important. A family takes a lot of work, you know? If you take it for granted, then things stop mattering. And once that happens, well, then, it's really hard to fix. That's why it's really important that everyone in the family is on the same page.

Johnny: Like in a book?

Rosanna: Like in a book with a very happy ending. Come here, you. Your daddy and I are gonna make this family right, okay? I promise you. You'll see.

Craig: You changed your mind?

Carly: Uh-huh. Have you?

Craig: Is this for real?

Carly: Do I not look real to you?

Craig: What I mean is, is this your decision? You didn't have a drink, did you?

Carly: Completely sober. And you're not giving yourself much credit if you think I'd only sleep with you if I was drunk.

Craig: Well, last night, you practically tore my head off when I told you I wanted to do this.

Carly: I slept on it -- or didn't sleep, rather. I can't get you out of my head, either. Now, I don't know. You're marrying my sister in a couple of hours, and it's now or never. Like you said, to end this thing between us once and for all.

Craig: I don't know what to say.

Carly: We never say the right things to each other, Craig. That's part of our problem. But this -- this was never, ever a problem for us, was it?

Craig: Hmm-mm, hmm-mm! No, no. I can't do this. I can't do this to Rosanna or to me.

Carly: Or me?

Craig: And I take full responsibility for telling you that I wanted you when I did. But not at the risk of what I'm about to begin with your sister. I'm sorry, Carly. It's -- it's not closure. It's just wrong. And you can hate me if you want. I would if I were you, too.

Carly: You son of a bitch.

Craig: Yeah, you're right. Sorry about that.

Carly: Don't be. You pulled it off.

Craig: What?

Carly: I wasn't gonna sleep with you, Craig.

Craig: Oh, Carly, I was here. You were here. We were just about --

Carly: It was a test. And you passed.

Craig: Carly, don't do this. You don't have to protect yourself or protect your ego. You're beautiful. I've always wanted you. But this isn't right. It's just not what I want.

Carly: Craig, read my lips. It was a test, I swear it. I cross my heart.

Craig: So if I didn't stop us just now --

Carly: I would have.

Craig: You're not just saying that?

Carly: I would have stopped. I would have called you a dozen or so vile names. I would have gone straight to Rosanna and insist that she call off the wedding.

Craig: This was unbelievable.

Carly: No. What's unbelievable is that you are not quite the creep that I thought you were.

Craig: Just so I have this clear, so this test -- that's it? You're just gonna drop it?

Carly: I don't know. I was thinking about that on the way over. I was wondering, if you did pass, should I go ahead and tell Rosanna, anyway? It's not like you didn't think this up and ask for it, beg for it, and go for it, until you got your brains out of your boxers.

Craig: Just hold it. You really think telling Rosanna what I said and what we didn't do is in her best interests?

Carly: No, I don't. And don't look so relieved. You're still a supreme jerk for propositioning me.

Craig: I know, I know. I said I was sorry.

Carly: If you mean that, don't ever do it again.

Craig: I won't.

Carly: I have your word, for whatever that's worth?

Craig: You have my word.

Carly: All right, then. This handshake will hereby be the most intimate thing that ever passes between us again. Deal?

Craig: Deal.

Dusty: That was beautiful. I'd like you to sing for me at the children's ward, okay? Merry Christmas. Don't tell anyone I joined in on "White Christmas."

Janet: You knew all the words.

Dusty: I'm a huge Bing Crosby fan.

Janet: Well, even though the look on your face was of pure, utter pain, excruciating pain while you were singing, it made me feel better. So did this. Thanks.

Dusty: Uh, keep it.

Janet: What? You don't want it back?

Dusty: Uh, at this point, with all the -- nah. You, uh, hold on to it.

Janet: All right. Well, maybe Santa will get you a new one for Christmas.

Dusty: I hope so.

Janet: You can't carry a tune. You know that?

Dusty: I do know. I bet you can't dodge a snowball.

Janet: Really? Is that a dare?

Dusty: You never know.

Janet: Ow! How do you run so fast?!

Dusty: You run like a girl.

Janet: Hey, that's not fair! I've got heels on.

Liberty: Mom?

Teri: Dusty, what -- what did I miss?

Dusty: Nothing. My manager's late to work.

Janet: Oh, so sorry, Sir. It will never happen again. I need to start. Thank you for the laugh, Honey. And thanks for the off-key singing.

Dusty: No problem, Bruiser.

Teri: You sang?

Dusty: No!

Janet: Well, I'm surprised to see you here.

Liberty: Well, I can tell that.

Teri: Did you get my -- my basil?

Janet: You were supposed to get basil?

Dusty: I got sidetracked.

Teri: Dusty, I need it.

Dusty: I'll get it right now, now that the streets are clear, I can sing off-key again.


Teri: Just so you know, there's a lot to do before the reception, okay, Jan? FYI.

Liberty: Hmm, hmm, hmm.

Janet: She's mad at me, just like you are.

Liberty: Well, I'm not so much anymore.

Janet: Really? Isn't that nice?

Liberty: Mom, I'm sorry, okay? I really did come to apologize.

Janet: Really? So this whole talk about you dropping out of high school is just a bad memory?

Liberty: How about we just, I don't know, talk about it some other time, like after the holidays, huh?

Janet: Oh, oh, really? Oh, so you think I'm gonna think differently about my kid being a high school dropout after a little Christmas pudding?

Liberty: Mom, I'm trying, okay? I mean, I know I started it, but I really don't want to fight.

Janet: Neither do I, Sweetie. I need this Christmas.

Liberty: Me, too.

Carly: Hello? Hi.

Jack: Hi.

Carly: Don't you look sharp.

Jack: Thank you.

Carly: Where is everybody?

Jack: Well, Johnny's upstairs, rehearsing his part for the ceremony, and Rosanna's getting dressed.

Carly: Oh. I should go and help her. How is she holding up?

Jack: How are you holding up?

Carly: I'm fine. Why?

Jack: You said you were getting Rosanna a present. And you look present-less. And may I assume cuff link-less?

Carly: Oh. I forgot Johnny's cuff links. You know what? I'm sure I can sift through that mess in Parker's room.

Jack: Yes. And what about Rosanna's present? What were you really doing, hmm? Oh!

Craig: How's everybody doing here?

Rosanna: Carly, are you back yet? I need help getting into this -- [Gasps] -- Dress. Craig! You're not supposed to see me before the wedding. Can't we do something mildly traditional?

Craig: Superstitions aren't traditional. They're dumb. You look beautiful.

Rosanna: Oh -- I guess it's too late now.

Craig: No. It's actually right on time. It's for you.

Rosanna: Oh?

Craig: I thought maybe it could be your something new. I put Johnny's picture on one side, and I thought maybe we could put our wedding picture on the other.

Rosanna: Oh, it's great. It's beautiful.

Craig: It's -- it's a family heirloom. Okay, it's a new family heirloom. I was going for sentimentality.

Rosanna: Why don't you go for not lying?

Carly: Okay, so, why don't we go on up and -- and get you in that dress, huh?

Rosanna: Uh, yes. That's a very good idea. Thank you very much for the -- the bad luck and the locket.

Craig: Our bad luck is over.

Carly: You don't have to try so hard. You got her, for some reason.

Craig: Something wrong, Jack?

Jack: Why don't you tell me?

Craig: I'm gonna go check on my son, see if he needs any help getting dressed.

Jack: He doesn't. I helped him, because his father was too busy tending to the maid of honor.

Craig: Something you want to get off your chest, Jack?

Jack: I know you propositioned Carly last night. Uh, you see? I -- I knew that would get your attention.

Craig: You do realize that on not one single level that is any of your business?

Jack: I -- I told Carly to tell Rosanna.

Craig: Well, thankfully, she's not taking your advice.

Jack: Yes, I know that. Because despite the fact that she knows you better than anyone -- well, outside of me and possibly your fiancée -- what a complete jackass you are, she actually wants this wedding to happen.

Craig: She loves her sister.

Jack: Do you love her sister?

Craig: Very much. And I plan on spending the rest of my life making her happy.

Jack: You mean now that Carly's turned you down?

[Cell phone rings]

Craig: Margo, hi. Yes, we're just about ready to go. We'll be meeting you at the courthouse, right? All right. Is that the real reason? No, no, no, no. I understand. Uh -- no, I'll think of something. I will. Okay. Thank you for calling. My sister, who was going to be my best man, can't make it to the ceremony.

Jack: Uh, she's on a case. That happens.

Craig: Yeah, I guess.

Jack: So, what -- did she give you an excuse, or --

Craig: No. I just -- no one in my family or your family, or any family, for that matter, seems to support my marriage to Rosanna.

Jack: Bummer.

Craig: Your compassion is overwhelming.

Jack: Come on, Craig. What are you gonna do about a best man?

Craig: I'll pay a stranger to do it. There's no one else.

Jack: Craig, I'm here. I'm in a suit and tie, and that doesn't happen often. I'll do it.

Craig: You'll be my best man?

Jack: Yes.

Craig: Are you out of your mind?

Jack: Probably. So -- hand over the rings.

Carly: Damn, you look good.

Rosanna: It's beautiful.

Carly: I wanted you to like it.

Rosanna: I love it. I really do. Thank you so much.

Carly: My pleasure.

Rosanna: I just -- I can't believe this is happening.

Carly: Neither can I. Come on. Come sit down. I -- I have something for you. I know that that locket covers the old and the new. I -- have the borrowed.

Rosanna: What is this?

Carly: It's my 30-day coin. I know that it's not really wedding-ish, but it's -- it's my most prized possession, and I want you to carry it for luck.

Rosanna: Are you sure?

Carly: You stood by me when I wasn't seeing straight. You should have the first marker from when I was.

Rosanna: Thank you.

Carly: You're welcome.

Rosanna: You've thought of everything.

Carly: Yes, I did. 'Cause I also have -- blue. This is -- it's a piece of Parker's first baby blanket. I want you to carry that, too.

Rosanna: I know he doesn't approve.

Carly: He's protective of me, and he's mad at Craig, but he loves you. So you can have a little bit of him with you, even though he won't be there today. Okay?

Rosanna: Okay. Carly, I know that I've asked a lot of you, you know, asking you to accept Craig and me as a couple, and I feel so terrible that I lied to you when you came back from rehab about it. I want you to know that.

Carly: I know you do.

Rosanna: I do. And I'm -- I'm really not sure that I could have been as -- amazing as you have been about all of this.

Carly: We'll never have to find out. You're my family. You're my sister. I will always protect your heart.

Rosanna: I'm so sorry I didn't take better care of yours.

Carly: You fell in love.

Rosanna: I really did.

Carly: So did he.

Craig: Why would you do that for me?

Jack: I think Rosanna deserves to be happy and have the wedding of her dreams.

Craig: Even if it's with me?

Jack: She's gonna be upset if you don't have a best man.

Craig: And?

Jack: And Carly wants to support this, and I would like to support Carly, 'cause this is gonna be hard for her, no matter how big and brave of a front she puts up. So I would like to be there for her. What do you say?

Carly: Hey.

Jack: Wow. You look great.

Carly: Oh, thanks. Well, you won't even notice me when you get a load of this.

Craig: You are the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

Carly: [Laughs] I'm sorry. Jack clearly wanted me to laugh, and he succeeded.

Jack: You don't believe me?

Rosanna: Well, what did he say?

Carly: It's -- it's too ridiculous to repeat.

Jack: Margo canceled, and I offered to be Craig's best man.

Carly: [Laughs] You see?

Jack: No. But he hasn't given me an answer yet, though. His only other option, he said, was to pay a stranger.

Rosanna: Craig?

Craig: You promise you won't ruin the day for us?

Jack: Me?

Craig: All right. I accept. Now, would you mind going over to the courthouse and making sure that everything is ready?

Jack: Not at all.

Craig: Thank you.

Jack: I'll see you there.

Rosanna: Jack -- thank you very much.

Jack: I told you. I just want you to be happy, Rosanna.

Carly: Okay, well, I guess I'll, uh, go upstairs and see if Johnny needs any help.

Rosanna: Okay. Thank you, Carly.

Carly: Hey, I just want you to be happy, too.

Rosanna: Oh!

Craig: Are you sure you're okay with this?

Rosanna: Yeah. I think it was great of Jack to sort of step up to be your best man.

Craig: You're not second-guessing your decision?

Rosanna: Are you?

Craig: Not in the least.

Rosanna: Then neither am I. And I am ready to be your wife.

Liberty: Hi, hello. Um, I'm gonna go to see if she needs help.

Janet: Don't read anything into that. We had a little fight earlier. She came to give me a peace offering. Wow. You look very handsome.

Jack: Why, thank you. Um, I'm hoping you're not gonna be upset with me.

Janet: Why would I be upset with you?

Jack: Because I have to back out on our plans to escort you to the wedding.

Janet: I don't get it. You're dressed for the wedding.

Jack: Yes, because I'm in the wedding.

Janet: What?

Jack: Hmm. Margo had to cancel. Craig needed a best man.

Janet: Oh, my God. No, no. Craig asked you to be his best man?

Jack: Oh, no, no.

Janet: Then I don't get it.

Jack: In a moment of -- I don't know what you would call it -- I offered, and Rosanna seemed okay with the idea, so Craig agreed.

Janet: Well, why would you offer to be his -- oh, yeah, I get it. Right, right. Because this is gonna be a really hard day for Carly to get through, and even though she says it's not gonna be hard, it is gonna be hard, and who better to hold her hand through the tough parts than you?

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait, wait. Janet, I'm still gonna be there with you, and I'm gonna be here at the reception with you.

Janet: You don't have to justify it. Jack, I -- I get it.

Jack: So you're -- you're not upset?

Janet: No. I'm not even surprised.

Jack: Okay. Well, I -- I have to go over to the courthouse and take care of some last-minute things for Craig with the justice of the peace.

Janet: Yeah. You'd better hurry up, then.

Jack: I'll see you then? Okay. Uh, you -- you look fantastic, by the way.

Janet: Your dress.

Jack: It looks great. I'll see you in a bit.

Liberty: I don't really think you should have been going with him, anyway.

Teri: Yeah, Libby's right. It was a low blow.

Janet: You two should not have been eavesdropping.

Teri: Well, he shouldn't have just dropped you like that.

Liberty: Yeah.

Janet: It's okay. I'm not going. What? You really think that I want to watch him be the best man while his ex-wife is the maid of honor? Hell, no. No. Now, I'll just finish up, uh, helping you here, and then I'm gonna get going and go home.

Dusty: That would be a waste of a beautiful dress. You should go to the wedding.

Janet: I'm not gonna go alone, Dusty. No way.

Dusty: I'll take you. Fresh basil, flown in from California this morning.

Teri: Thanks.

Dusty: No problem. So?

Janet: I, uh, appreciate you making me feel better earlier, but, uh, I'm not a charity case.

Dusty: Do I look like I give charity?

Janet: You did this morning to the carolers.

Dusty: That wasn't charity. That was a bribe.

[Janet scoffs]

Dusty: Look, I'm an invited guess, not an intruder, so come with me. Forget about Jack.

Liberty: Yeah, I think you should go with him.

Janet: That's enough out of you.

Teri: Hey, Dusty, I thought that you wouldn't be caught dead at Craig and Rosanna's wedding. What about Johnny, you know, giving him his day?

Dusty: Well, I can keep an eye on him this way.

Teri: Seriously? I just -- I don't think it's such a good idea.

Dusty: What are you talking about? Your sister looks like a million bucks! She should show it off.

Liberty: Mm.

Janet: You know what? I'm in. Let's go. You can handle the rest from here, right?

Teri: Absolutely.

Liberty: Great news, you guys. You look great. Have so much fun. Dusty, fun -- have it. This is so awesome.

Teri: Yeah, awesome. Awesome. Idiot! He got cilantro.

Rosanna: Oh!

Jack: Hey! Well, am I a good best man or what? Craig, I've got your boutonniere right here. Rosanna, your bouquet. Carly, yours. What do you say, Kid? I even got you and I a flower of our own.

Rosanna: Oh, that's so nice. Thank you, Jack.

Jack: Uh, no problem at all. I -- I talked to the judge. He's on his way. I even procured a back room there for any last-minute girl dress-type stuff. So --

Rosanna: Okay.

Craig: Well, thank you very much, Jack.

Rosanna: I guess I'm gonna go to that little back room and, um, pace. [Laughter] Um, I will see you very soon, my husband to be.

Craig: I'll be the guy in front, smiling. I should be easy to pick out in this crowd.

Rosanna: Stop.

Craig: All right. Let's see if we can get this boutonniere on you, huh?

Carly: You are a pretty good last-minute stand in, Jack.

Jack: Yeah, I'm pretty good at the short term. Long term, not so much.

Craig: Ow!

Jack: Did you prick yourself?

Craig: Mm-hmm.

Carly: Don't get any blood on your shirt and your tie. Here, I'll do it.

Craig: Thank you. Are you sure the judge is on his way?

Jack: I can check again.

Carly: He wants you to check again, Jack.

Jack: I'll check again.

Craig: Thank you.

Jack: You made it!

Janet: I was invited.

Jack: Yes, I know that, but I was afraid that when I -- I told you I couldn't take you, that you wouldn't want to come alone. So --

Dusty: She didn't. She's with me. It's a nice day for a wedding, isn't it?

Carly: Very handsome, Johnny. Will you go check in that room back there and ask Rosanna if she needs me to do anything?

Johnny: Okay.

Carly: Thanks. Bleeding stop?

Craig: I think so.

Carly: Good. Here. Why don't you let me get this for you? I don't -- I don't trust that you won't poke an artery.

Craig: You always had that touch with me.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Katie: I'm putting the house on the market. The sooner, the better.

Brad: Please let me borrow your body one more time. Let me have at least one last dance with my wife. Please, please!

Rosanna: You've never once looked at me the way you were looking at Carly a few minutes ago.
