Lily: Aah! What?

Damian: So, Meg hasn't attempted to contact you at all?

Paul: Nope, not at all. Damian, I haven't heard from her, okay?

Damian: Meg escaped from a psychiatric hospital, Paul, after attacking my wife in our home. You saw the way she came after us in court. She had to be restrained.

Paul: Okay. What does that have to do with us?

Damian: Emily, have you heard from her? Has Meg asked you for help?

Meg: He's right upstairs, Sweetheart. We can't let Damian know that we're here. I won't let them take you away from me.

Barbara: Where did you get this?

Mick: You gave it back to me a long time ago. I was hoping perhaps this time you might keep it.

Barbara: James gave this to me.

Mick: Yes, I did, after an indiscretion, which we really don't need to rehash.

Barbara: And I gave it back to him and said that --

Mick: I would never change, so a diamond necklace was a meaningless gesture.

Barbara: And it still is.

Mick: Are you sure about that?

Barbara: Yes, I am. So, you know a little of my history with James.

Mick: Because it's my history, as well.

Barbara: But if you think -- if you honestly think that you can convince me that you are James, you are wasting your time and your money.

Mick: That's a shame. Turn around. I want to see this on you. As lovely now as then.

Barbara: Who are you, and what do you want?

Mick: I'm James Stenbeck. I want a second chance.

Janet: [Remembering] Every bar needs mistletoe.

Dusty: What was that for?

Janet: It's Christmas. Parker, hi.

Parker: Hi. Did I leave my calculus book here?

Janet: Uh, I don't know. I'll check for you.

Parker: Is that mistletoe?

Janet: Yep, yep. It fell. I'm surprised you know what it is.

Parker: Well, my mom hangs it every year. She always grabs me underneath it all the time. It makes me crazy.

Janet: Oh, I think that's cute. Uh, how's your dad?

Parker: Okay.

Janet: Is he feeling better?

Parker: I guess.

Janet: Well, I bet you guys had a good Christmas, huh? I'm sure Carly liked having him around. Did they talk a lot?

Parker: Janet, please, okay?

Janet: What? Parker, I'm just asking how your dad's doing.

Parker: No. You're trying to figure out if he and my mom are hooking up. They're not, okay?

Carly: Oh! What did he ever do to you?

Jack: Hey, remember this guy?

Carly: I don't think I have a single picture of Sage before the age of 5 without him.

Jack: We gave him to Sage on her first Christmas, I think.

Carly: Yes, we did. It's been nice having you around, Jack, especially this time of year.

Jack: You're just saying that 'cause I cleaned your basement.

Carly: That's exactly why I'm saying that. [Both laugh] Really, though, you do seem better.

Jack: I do feel a little better. I emphasize "A little."

Carly: Have you talked to Janet?

Jack: Not since yesterday, but I know I need to. I need to take care of a lot of things, and I will.

Carly: Do you think maybe you could do that after you clean the attic? [Laughs]

Jack: We'll negotiate after I shower.

Carly: That sounds good. Aww. Oh, I can sew that.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Eh. Craig, go away, okay?

Craig: I'm sorry. I have to talk to you about the business.

Carly: We don't have any business to discuss.

Craig: I have to talk to you about a meeting for Midday Sun.

Carly: You could have called.

Craig: I figured you'd hang up.

Carly: You were right. And now I'm gonna close the door in your face. Craig! What the hell do you want?

Craig: You.

Carly: Craig, what do you want?

Craig: I need you for this meeting, nothing more, nothing less.

Carly: I'm sure whatever the meeting is you can handle it on your own.

Craig: Would you listen to me, I'm -- Carly, I have the world's worst cold.

Carly: Mm-hmm. All the more reason for me to let you win, right, so you can spread your germs around.

Craig: Do you feel how cold it is out here? Please, I'm begging you.

Carly: All right. Make it snappy.

Craig: Thank you.

Carly: I mean it. What meeting, where, what do you need from me? And don't touch anything without washing your hands.

Craig: Do you have to be so hostile? I'm not the one who called off this wedding, if you remember.

Carly: No. Rosanna called off the wedding after she caught you giving me the fish eye before the ceremony.

Craig: It takes two to give good fish eye.

Carly: All right, that's it! Get out!

Craig: I know you were hurt, too, when she called us out at the wedding.

Carly: Craig, she didn't call me out! She called you out, and then she came to her senses and she left you.

Craig: I'm not the only one she left.

Carly: Really? Did she call you when she landed in Germany? 'Cause she called me.

Craig: Did she mention me?

Carly: No, not a word. Allow me. What is the matter with you?

Craig: I want to talk to you. You owe me that.

Carly: I don't owe you anything. Get out.

Jack: She asked you to leave, Craig, so, either you can do that on your own or I can see you out.

Craig: Why, Jack, that's awfully proprietary for someone who's crashing on the couch while his marriage is falling apart.

Jack: You really want to dance with me right now?

Craig: I have business with Carly.

Jack: You gonna go on your own or not?

Carly: Jack.

Jack: Carly, just say the word.

Carly: Jack, what are you doing?

Janet: I'm sorry.

Parker: Forget it.

Janet: No, you're right. I should not be involving you in this at all. I'm just worried about your dad, you know?

Parker: He seems okay.

Janet: Well, we had a difficult holiday here.

Parker: Yeah, I know. How's Liberty?

Janet: Oh, I think she's starting to make peace with everything that's happened. I'll bet Sage had a good time with your dad, right?

Parker: Yeah, she did. I mean, we all did, but it's really not the same as it was before. It's just --

Janet: Yeah, I know. I get it. So, did your dad and Carly, did they get along?

Parker: They got along fine. It was normal.

Janet: Like when they were married?

Parker: Janet, can I please have the book?

Janet: Sorry.

Parker: Look, I don't know what's going on with them or with you guys, but I would really, really, really appreciate it if you wouldn't ask me anything about it, because I don't want to get involved. Thank you.

Barbara: I don't know what you're doing, but you are Mick. You are not James. I am very clear on that.

Mick: The necklace looks beautiful on you.

Barbara: Stop that.

Mick: You seem very distracted.

Barbara: Maybe that's because my son is in the middle of a potentially dangerous situation.

Mick: I don't approve of Paul's hiding Meg, either.

Barbara: Her escape from Deerbrook is all over the news, and if she's as unstable as they say she is, I don't want my granddaughter anywhere near her.

Mick: Paul and Emily won't let anything happen to Eliza.

Barbara: Emily? Emily can't take care of herself, let alone a baby.

Mick: So, you don't approve of the women in our son's life.

Barbara: His life would be a lot less complicated without Emily or Meg.

Mick: His life or yours?

Barbara: I know how that sounds -- controlling, possessive.

Mick: It sounds like the Barbara I've always known and loved.

Barbara: Don't do this, okay? Don't do this.

Mick: Can't help it. It's true.

Damian: Emily, if you know something about Meg --

Paul: She doesn't.

Damian: Do you see how serious this is? She's called the house. She's threatened me.

Emily: What? When?

Damian: After she escaped.

Paul: You're making that up.

Damian: I wish I was. I haven't even told Lily about the calls because she's terrified as it is.

Emily: Are the police involved?

Damian: Not yet, and when they almost were, I covered for her.

Paul: Oh, how big of you.

Damian: Look, I only intervened on her behalf because I thought I could keep my family safe from her. That's why I'm here, because I don't think I can do that anymore.

Paul: Really? Why not?

Damian: Because if you choose to protect Meg, it's not only putting my family at risk but yours, as well, and I don't want that on my conscience. So think about it.

Emily: Okay, that's enough. That's enough. This has to stop right now.

Carly: Didn't you say something about talking to Janet? Why don't you go and do that, okay?

Jack: All right, I will. I've been ignoring my own life long enough.

Craig: You were incredible with him!

Carly: Oh, Craig, really, I do want you to go. Please don't make me ask you again.

Craig: I heard what you just said. You're still on my side, even after everything that's happened.

Carly: I'm not on your side. I'm done with you, personally, professionally -- everything in between. As a matter of fact, why don't you sell that stupid vitamin water company so we never have to speak to each other again?

[Knock on window]

Janet: Hi.

Jack: Hi.

Janet: Did you forget your key?

Jack: No. You going out?

Janet: Yeah. I have a shift at Metro.

Jack: Do you have a few minutes?

Janet: Sure. Come on in. What's going on?

Jack: How was Christmas?

Janet: Sad.

Jack: I'm sorry.

Janet: Well, I got the gift you left me. I was kind of surprised about that.

Jack: Janet, you're my wife.

Janet: Am I, Jack? I'm sorry. It's just it was Christmas. We missed Christmas.

Jack: I know that. I've asked you to put up with a lot lately, more than I've had any right to, and you've been phenomenal.

Janet: Well, I thought that maybe I was pushing you too hard and that's why you stayed away.

Jack: Janet, you didn't do anything wrong, okay? I couldn't think of anything except myself for weeks.

Janet: What happened was terrible. It takes time to get over that.

Jack: Yeah, I know. Listen, if I tell you something, I hope you won't think I'm nuts.

Janet: I'll try.

Jack: I had kind of a spiritual experience on Christmas Eve. I saw Brad. You think I'm losing it, don't you?

Janet: No, actually, I don't.

Jack: And he said that I should stop blaming myself for his death, and I don't know if it was real or in my head or what, but after it happened, I felt different. I felt lighter, and suddenly I felt this gap that opened between us. I don't know. I started to believe that I could bridge it with you.

Janet: Wow.

Jack: I mean it. He said that I got to forgive myself, and I'm not really at that point yet, but I thought that if I could forgive me, maybe you could, too.

Janet: Uh.

Jack: Janet, we don't need mistletoe to make up. Janet.

Janet: I saw Brad, too.

Jack: You did?

Janet: I did. He told me that I need to take better care of myself.

Jack: It felt real, right?

Janet: Uh-huh.

Jack: What else did he say?

Janet: He said I deserved to be happy.

Jack: You're right. So, why is it you don't look very happy?

Janet: Because this amazing, incredible thing happened. I don't -- I mean, I don't know what it was, but it moved me. It really affected me.

Jack: Okay.

Janet: And it made me feel like -- like I want to be happy again, and so I did something that I thought would make me happy, and I did it without thinking.

Jack: Which was?

Janet: I kissed Dusty.

Craig: Carly, this company can be Parker's legacy.

Carly: Parker has a trust fund to protect him for the rest of his life, Craig.

Craig: It's the ad guys, Carly. They like you. They like Parker. They just want to pitch you some new ideas for the ad campaign. [Coughs] Would you listen to me? I need backup. Just come take the meeting. Just hear the pitch. If you don't like what you hear or if you don't want me involved, fine. Then I will sell the company.

[Door opens]

Parker: Seriously?

Carly: Parker, Craig wants the two of us to go to Chicago with him for a meeting with the Midday Sun advertisers.

Parker: Why?

Craig: Because if it works out, you'll have more money than you have now.

Parker: I have money.

Carly: See?

Craig: Okay. If it works out, then you'll never have to see me again.

Parker: When do you need me? I have hockey practice now, but --

Craig: One hour.

Parker: Great. I'll leave early. Are you sure this is okay with you?

Carly: No, but whatever.

Parker: Okay. I'm late. I need to get my gear.

Craig: Well, you've poisoned him against me nicely.

Carly: Oh, no. You did that all on your lonesome.

Craig: Yeah, you're right. I'm gonna go drive, so you can get ready, and I'll come back. Thank you.

Carly: This is the last time, Craig, seriously.

Craig: Got it. Not.

Emily: Damian suspects we know where Meg is. That's great. He's right, isn't he?

Paul: Meg is the mother of my child. I am not gonna let Damian get her arrested or committed or both or worse!

Emily: What about our child?

Paul: What child?

Emily: The child I'm trying to have, thank you very much! And you know what? If we get arrested as accessories, I really don't think the state penitentiary's gonna be offering me IVF treatments in the infirmary!

Meg: Okay. I am so sorry I'm causing so much trouble for you guys.

Emily: Well, then stop doing it and get the hell out!

Paul: She's not going -- excuse me. She's not going anywhere. But you really shouldn't be up here.

Meg: I heard Damian here before.

Paul: Yeah, Damian is no threat to you, okay? I promise. And you, you need to relax, okay? Meg isn't a threat to anybody. Both of you just stay here. I have somewhere to go, and I'll be back as soon as I can.

Damian: Cara, what is it?

Lily: I don't know.

Damian: You're frightened.

Lily: I've been nothing but frightened ever since Meg broke in here and threatened us.

Damian: That's it.

Lily: What are you doing?

Damian: I'm gonna ask the police to put out an APB on Meg.

Lily: No. I promised Holden that I wouldn't do that to his sister.

Damian: You're not doing it. I am.

Lily: For Emma's sake, they're still my family.

Damian: Lily, I am worried about you, all right, and you're living in terror.

[Knock on door]

Damian: Do you have anything new to tell me?

Paul: No. I just -- I want to make sure that we're clear about something.

Damian: All we need to be clear on is this -- I'm calling the police and filing charges against Meg. This is a criminal matter now.

Paul: I wouldn't do that, Damian. If you do, you'll have to answer to me.

Lily: We have enough to deal with, Paul, without you threatening us, too.

Paul: I'm not threatening you. Look, I know that she scared you and I know that it looks bad, but please don't take Eliza's mother away from her.

Damian: You do know where she is, don't you?

Paul: No. I didn't say that. Look, Meg isn't gonna hurt you or you or your children. You have my word.

Damian: Your word.

Paul: Yes.

Damian: In exchange for what?

Paul: Let me go find her. Let me talk some sense to her. Let me help her get the help that she needs. Don't turn this in to a manhunt.

Lily: Go find her, Paul. Get her the help she needs.

Paul: Thank you.

Damian: This was a mistake.

Lily: Please, Damian. Just a little bit longer. Let Meg's family try to help her. Please.

Emily: You playing house is putting our lives in jeopardy.

Meg: This isn't about you, Emily.

Emily: No, it's about you, like always. You didn't get what you want, which is Damian, and now you're out to make the whole word think that everybody's out to get you, and you know what? It's pathetic, and if I wasn't so concerned about Paul, I'd call the cops on you myself.

Meg: Well, how long have you been standing there listening to our private conversation?

Emily: Yeah, just ignore her.

Meg: No, no, no, no, no. Who exactly are you and what do you want?

Janet: Are you gonna say anything?

Jack: I think I'd rather say it to Dusty.

Janet: Did you hear what I said? I kissed him.

Jack: What do you mean you kissed him?

Janet: Don't be a guy about this, okay? He had nothing to do with this. It was all me. I kissed him.

Jack: Why?

Janet: Because it was Christmas and I felt like you dumped me.

Jack: No, Janet. That's not what happened!

Janet: What do you mean that's not what happened? You moved out of this house and in with your ex-wife!

Jack: Yes, I was crashing on her couch!

Janet: You spent Christmas with her! Do you know how many times I looked at that door and waited for you to walk through it with an arm full of presents and that goofy reindeer sweater that I knit for you last year? But what did I get? I got nothing! I got to spend Christmas by myself. I saw your dead brother, and he told me to stop wasting my life.

Jack: By kissing Dusty Donovan?

Janet: No! By not sitting around here and waiting for you to tell me that you still love me! [Sobbing]

Jack: Why would you even tell me this?

Janet: Because. Because, okay. We've never -- we've never lied to each other, Jack, and I don't want to start now.

Jack: Yeah, well, this is not what I thought we'd be talking about when I came here tonight.

Janet: What did you -- what did you think we'd be talking about?

Jack: I have no idea. I thought that I would say that I wanted to try.

Janet: Try?

Jack: That's pretty much all I can offer right now.

Janet: Offer? Jack, for God's sakes, you make it sound like coming home is a job!

Jack: That's not fair at all.

Janet: Why? Why?

Jack: Because I want to work on this!

Janet: Okay. Let me get this straight. You want to work on this but you can't tell me that you want to come home or if I'm the one you want to be with.

Jack: Janet, okay, listen. It's not you.

Janet: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Don't finish that sentence. It's not enough, Jack.

Jack: Saying I want to try is not enough?

Janet: No. Saying you're not sure whether you want to come home and that you still love me is what is not enough.

Jack: Janet, I do -- I do love you.

Janet: Then I -- I wish you would remember what it was like when you didn't have to try to make me believe it. I have one more thing to say. If you do come home and you decide to leave again, I won't be able to handle it.

Jack: Okay. But I'm such a mess right now. I can't make any promises.

Janet: Well, at least we still have that.

Jack: What do you mean?

Janet: At least you still care enough about me to tell the truth. I think you should go.

Parker: Yo, Richie. What's up?

Richie: Hey, man.

Parker: Yo, did you hear that they canceled hockey practice? Trent just texted me something about the wind chill being too dangerous.

Richie: Yeah.

Parker: Wusses, right?

Richie: No, seriously. You want to go grab a burger?

Parker: Actually, I told my mom I'd go to this lame meeting with her in Chicago.

[Cell phone beeps]

Parker: Well, her business associate just texted me, saying that the meeting was called off due to bad weather. Still hungry?

Richie: Starving.

Parker: Let's go.

Richie: All right.

[Doorbell rings]

Craig: Wow. You clean up good.

Carly: Oh, zip it, Craig. I'm bringing a suit jacket for Parker.

Craig: You think of everything.

Carly: Well, with you, you have to.

Carly: You just missed the turn.

Craig: Hmm?

Carly: You missed the turn to Parker's high school.

Craig: Oh, oh. Guess I forgot to tell you.

Carly: Forgot to tell me what? Turn around and go pick Parker up!

Craig: Parker sent me a text. He can't make it.

Carly: Excuse me?

Craig: Something about hockey practice running late? Something like that.

Carly: And you're just telling me this now?

Craig: I forgot. Sorry.

Carly: Well, then let's forget the meeting. The whole point of the meeting was for Parker, and if he can't even be there --

Craig: No, no, no. It's all right. We can do this meeting on our own. I feel confident.

Carly: Yeah, then the cold medicine must be going to your head. Look, if Parker can't be there and the roads are obviously getting worse, let's just reschedule the damn thing.

Craig: We can do this on our own. We're on our way there now. It'll be fine.

Dusty: Hey, Jack.

Jack: Dusty. Well, hey, before I forget, let me thank you for making the moves on my wife while she was vulnerable. That's classy.

Dusty: You're lucky she's still your wife, considering how you treat her.

Jack: Stay the hell away from her.

Dusty: Your wife works for me.

Jack: Then keep it professional.

Dusty: I'm not doing this with you.

Jack: Don't do whatever you do with other women with my wife. You got it?

Dusty: You want to blame me for your marriage falling apart? Go ahead. You keep drinking. That always works.

[Cell phone ringing]

Janet: Oh, now what? Hi.

Jack: Hi. You at work yet?

Janet: I was on my way. Are you okay?

Jack: Yeah. Listen, I'm really, really sorry about before.

Janet: So am I. I guess we just keep talking, right?

Jack: Yeah, I guess. In the meantime, there's something I want to ask you.

Janet: Okay.

Jack: You don't have any plans yet for New Year’s Eve, do you?

Janet: No. Not yet.

Jack: That's good to hear.

Janet: Are you asking me out on a date?

Jack: Yes, I am.

Janet: Well, you stood me up last time.

Jack: Janet, I'm not gonna do that again.

Janet: Yes.

Jack: No, Janet, I will not.

Janet: I mean yes I will be your date for New Year’s.

Jack: Excellent.

Janet: I hope so.

Mick: I just came by to see if you were having any adverse side effects to the treatments.

Meg: What treatments?

Emily: None of your business.

Paul: Meg. It would be great if you weren't here.

Emily: Oh. So, now we get to put our whole lives on hold because of her.

Mick: No. It's all right, Emily. I obviously came at a bad time. You are juggling a lot here, but you're making sure that you do the right thing by everyone, and I admire you for that.

Paul: Oh, terrific. Thank you.

Mick: I'll see you later.

Paul: All right. So, I talked with Lily and with Damian, and they have agreed to not involve the police.

Emily: Okay. When's this all gonna end, because it's really disruptive?

Paul: You know what? Why don't you and I go out and we'll have a nice meal and we can discuss how disruptive it all is, okay?

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Paul: And you, you need to go down to the wine cellar, all right? Do you have everything that you need for Eliza?

Meg: I do, but I was thinking that maybe I could just --

Paul: The more you hang out up here, the more vulnerable you are.

Mick: Please! You have to send someone! There's a woman here, and she's crazy! Yes, she's dangerous! She escaped from the insane asylum, and I'm just so terrified that she's gonna hurt the people I care about! Please, before someone gets killed! The address? It's Fairwinds, 100 Stone Ridge Road. Hurry!

Damian: I can't stand thinking that you might be in danger.

Lily: You don't think it's hard for me to have to think about what Meg has been saying, all those horrible things, that you knew Holden was alive when you married me? She's so desperate to have you look bad in my eyes.

Damian: I think we should put this away and not look at it. At least for tonight.

Lily: You think we can do that?

Damian: Oh, with the right bottle of wine and a room full of candles, I think we might.

Lily: You're so sweet.

Damian: I'm so in love. You want to find us a good bottle of wine?

Lily: I'd love to.

Meg: Hey, Sweetie. I love you so much.

[Police sirens wailing]

Meg: Okay, Eliza, we've got to get out of here. I will not let them take you away from me.

Emily: Oh, great.

Barbara: Hello to you, too, Emily.

Paul: Can I please just have a nice, quiet meal with my wife?

Barbara: Did you hear me ask to join you?

[Cell phone rings]

Emily: We didn't have to.

Paul: That's me. That's the house phone.

Barbara: Eliza home alone?

Paul: No, she's with a sitter. Hello, Liz. Wait, what? When did that happen? Hold on a second. She took her with her? No. Don't do anything. Just call me when they come back.

Barbara: What?

Paul: Cops showed up looking for Meg.

Barbara: Oh, no.

Paul: So Meg took off with Eliza.

Emily: What?

Paul: Yeah. I wonder who tipped off the cops.

Lily: Oh, my God. What --

Damian: She was here.

Lily: Meg?

Damian: That's it. That's it. Enough is enough. This is Damian Grimaldi. Somebody broke in to my house and vandalized it. Yeah. We're pretty sure we know who it is. Meg Snyder. That's correct. She's been harassing my wife and family for weeks now, and -- what? When? She wasn't there. Very well. Thank you. Please keep me informed of anything you hear, and I want a squad car in front of my house. My family's in jeopardy from this woman. Thank you. They had a lead on her and went to find her but she was gone.

Lily: Where was she?

Damian: Fairwinds. Cara, listen to me. I want you and the kids to pack a bag and leave town right now.

Lily: Now?

Damian: Yes, and don't come back until I tell you it's safe to do so.

Lily: I can't.

Damian: Lily.

Lily: No, no. I won't leave you.

Paul: Did you actually see Meg leave with the baby?

Woman: No.

Paul: So, how do you know that she took her?

Woman: The car seat is gone, and the diaper bag is missing.

Paul: Could you give us a minute?

Woman: Of course.

Paul: Thank you. Thank you.

Emily: How could she do this?

Paul: Can you blame her, after what you did?

Emily: What?

Paul: You called the police, Emily?

Emily: No!

Paul: Well, then how the hell did the police know that she was here?

Emily: Do you really think I would jeopardize Eliza's life? I wanted Meg gone, not the baby.

Paul: Do you know what those roads are like? She's driving around with my daughter, and she is not right in the head! She's not thinking straight! How could you do this?

Emily: I didn't! I didn't.

Mick: What's the matter? You look upset.

Barbara: The police discovered that Meg has been hiding out in Paul and Emily's. Before they could get to her, she took off with the baby.

Mick: Well, this could be for the best.

Barbara: Excuse me?

Mick: The police will find her and put an end to this.

Barbara: And what if something happens to my grandchild before they put an end to it, huh?

Janet: Hi. Oh, sorry.

Dusty: It's okay. Are you?

Janet: Am I what?

Dusty: Okay. You seem, I don't know --

Janet: No, I'm not.

Dusty: You're not okay?

Janet: No, I'm okay. I don't -- I'm -- look, about what happened before --

Dusty: Oh, that. I forgot it.

Janet: Good. Me too. Yeah. I was just -- I was angry at Jack. I was trying to prove a point. I don't know to who, though.

Dusty: That's great.

Janet: Good. I'm gonna go help Teri in the kitchen. I think she needs me.

Jack: Oh, man! It is freezing out there!

Parker: Yeah. Yeah, I know. They called off hockey practice because of it. This is really weird.

Jack: What is?

Parker: Craig asked me and Mom to come with him to Chicago for a meeting about the vitamin water campaign, but then he texted me later, saying that the meeting was called off.

Jack: So?

Parker: Well, I just found this note for you from Mom.

Jack: "Jack, gone to Chicago for that meeting with Craig and Parker. Sage is sleeping over at the Lebows', so you're on your own for dinner. Sorry about before. Carly." Maybe she left this before the meeting was canceled.

Parker: I guess she could have, but if she did, then where is she now?

Jack: There's only one way to find out.

[Cell phone ringing]

Carly: Jack, hi.

Jack: I just got your note. Where are you?

Carly: I'm on my way to that meeting that I told you about. I guess Parker got held up at some practice.

Jack: Yeah. Thing is Parker is standing right here in front of me saying that practice was canceled due to weather.

Carly: What?

Jack: And he also said that Craig texted him saying that the meeting in Chicago was canceled, as well.

Carly: Sorry?

Jack: Are you with Craig?

Carly: You miserable low life!

Craig: Carly, I need to -- I need to concentrate here.

Carly: You lied to me, didn't you, just to get me alone in this car with you!

Jack: Carly? Carly, listen to me. Just do me a favor. Pull over to the side of the road and tell me where you are. Carly? Carly?

Parker: What happened?

Jack: Lost the call.

Parker: Well, where is she?

Jack: With Craig. I think he's kidnapped your mother.

Carly: How could you do this, Craig?

Craig: 'Cause I didn't think there was any other way to get the time for you to talk to me.

Carly: I'm not gonna talk to you now! Turn the car around and bring me home!

Craig: Would you calm down?

Carly: I'm not gonna calm down! This is so completely, entirely juvenile! I swear to God, if you do not turn this car around and bring me home this instant --

Craig: Take the trip. Just take the trip. Talk to me. And then if you still hate me --

Carly: I already still hate you! Slow the car down and pull it over. Pull it over, Craig!

Craig: No, Carly! Don't do that! The roads are slick!

[Tires squeal]

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Craig: I guess we're stuck here till morning.

Carly: If you think I'm spending the night here with you, think again.

Margo: Do you really think that Carly's in danger or are you just ticked off that she's with Craig?

Casey: Handle it.

Hunter: Good, because I didn't tell her anything about the engagement.

Alison: You already know what's wrong with you, don't you? Tell me.

Mick: You wouldn't understand.
