Carly: It's after midnight.

Jack: Officially making it a new year.

Carly: Funny how that works.

Jack: People are kissing all over the world.

Carly: I'm sure.

Jack: It's what you do.

Carly: So I've been told.

Jack: How many New Yearís Eves have we spent together?

Carly: I can't even begin to count.

Jack: So it's nothing new to us. I mean, ringing in the New Year and all. What?

Carly: You're still married.

Jack: Is that what I have? A marriage?

Carly: Yeah. And it's waiting for you to go home and put it back together.

Jack: I'm not sure that Janet will take me back now.

Carly: Yes, she will. She loves you, Jack. You're all she wants.

Jack: I'm not sure she feels that way anymore.

Janet: Oh my God!

Dusty: Hey, we have lights.

Janet: Oh, my God.

Dusty: Where you going?

Janet: Uh, home!

Dusty: Are you okay?

Janet: No, I'm not okay! Do you realize what just happened?

Dusty: Listen, you did nothing wrong.

Janet: What do you mean "Nothing wrong"? Come on, it was bad enough that I kissed you but this -- this is -- this is -- oh, God, I'm pathetic!

Dusty: Are you done beating yourself up? Let's talk about it.

Janet: No! I don't want to talk about this with you.

Dusty: Why not?

Janet: Because I-I have to go home.

Dusty: Listen, I think you should calm down.

Janet: Let me go!

Dusty: Listen. You're not pathetic. Or desperate. You have nothing to be ashamed of.

Katie: Hey! What are you doing here?

Henry: A happy and joyous new year to you, too. You want to get that out of my face, please?

Katie: Oh, sorry.

Henry: Yeah.

Katie: The lights went out.

Henry: Yeah, Katie, I noticed.

Katie: Do you know what happened?

Henry: Uh, they said there was a lot of ice, I think just brought down the power lines.

Katie: Yeah, that's what I figured.

Henry: Mm-hmm. And I figured I would come over here and check on you and Jacob and see if you were all right.

Katie: We're good. We're great, actually. He slept through the whole thing.

Henry: Lucky kid.

Katie: Where were you?

Henry: I was at the diner, waiting for a drunken crowd that never showed arrived. You have no idea how much fun it is to keep a generator running for three people drinking coffee.

Katie: Well, I guess everyone just stayed home.

Henry: Yeah. I'm expecting a baby boom in September.

Katie: Oh, good, lots of new friends for Jacob.

Henry: Mm-hmm. Can I ask you something?

Katie: Hmm?

Henry: Why did you look like you were a little disappointed when it was me that was at the door?

Katie: I wasnít. I just wasn't expecting you. That's all.

Henry: Really? 'Cause I have a feeling that you were disappointed that it wasn't Simon who came a-knocking.

Jack: Believe me, Carly, I know what I put Janet through, okay? She's been more patient than I deserve.

Carly: Well, it's not gonna last forever.

Jack: No, I know it wonít.

Carly: Well, then I guess you know what your new year's resolution should be.

Jack: Yeah. I know what I have to do.

Carly: Happy New Year, Jack.

Jack: Happy New Year, Carly. [Rumbling] Oh, that's got to be a plow. Oh, yeah, they're finally clearing the roads.

Carly: Oh, well, all we need now is some light.

[Both laugh]

Jack: You think maybe you can order the car to start working, 'cause --

Carly: [Chuckles] I guess we're not gonna die here after all.

Jack: No. No, I guess not.

Carly: Craig? Wake up.

Craig: [Coughs] God, I feel awful.

Jack: But you look fantastic.

Carly: They're plowing the roads. We're gonna be able to get out of here soon.

Craig: Oh, thank God. I had the most horrible dream. I was in a tub, naked, and you were giving me a sponge bath.

Carly: How do you feel, Craig?

Craig: Like I've been run over by an 18-wheeler.

Carly: Well -- oh, you're not so hot anymore, you know. I think your fever's broken.

Jack: Guess that dunk in the pond was a miracle cure.

Craig: I'm sure you would've preferred if I drowned.

Jack: Yours words, not mine.

Carly: Oh, stop it, now. You did as much to help him as I did.

Craig: You mean the tub, the sponge bath? I didn't dream that?

Carly: We had to get you warmed up as quickly as we could.

Jack: And believe me, if it was a bad dream for you, it was a nightmare for me.

Craig: All right. What happened in this cabin stays in the cabin. As soon as we go out that door, we never speak of it again.

Jack: You're not gonna get argument here.

[Knock on door]

Ranger: You folks okay in here?

Jack: Yeah, we're fine. Our cars are stuck.

Ranger: Well, you're gonna need a truck for the one off the road.

Jack: Hey, can we get a tow back to town, maybe a ride?

Ranger: Sure can. But I only have room for two people. So one of you is gonna have to stay behind.

Dusty: You have no reason to feel guilty.

Janet: Don't tell me how I'm supposed to feel.

Dusty: Sometimes things just happen.

Janet: This didn't just happen! Dusty, this wasn't a random accident, okay?

Dusty: I'm glad you stayed.

Janet: Oh, I'll bet you are.

Dusty: I didn't mean it like that.

Janet: I'm sorry, I -- I'm sorry. I didn't either.

Dusty: I wish you weren't so upset about it.

Janet: Oh, boy, this was a huge mistake, okay?

Dusty: And you regret it.

Janet: Of course I do! This was so wrong.

Dusty: Come on, you're acting like you committed a crime.

Janet: Adultery is a crime.

Dusty: Well, if that were true, everybody would be in jail.

Janet: Okay. All right. Let me put it to you this way. I am married. I took sacred vows.

Dusty: Yeah. You're married. Your husband stood you up on New Yearís Eve. You stayed here with me. What do all these things say about your marriage?

Jack: Okay, he's ready. Are you ready?

Carly: You know, I think that Craig should go back with the ranger, Jack.

Jack: Are you kidding me? It's his fault we got stuck out here to begin with.

Carly: He needs to see a doctor.

Jack: Come on! The tow truck will be back for him eventually.

Carly: What if he gets worse, Jack?

Jack: How is that my problem, Carly?

Craig: Compassionate as ever, Jack.

Jack: Hey, Craig, whatever compassion I had for you died a long time ago.

Carly: Stop it! This -- this is why you should just go on ahead, and I'll hang back with Craig, and we'll come later, okay?

Jack: Carly, the kids are gonna miss you. They're gonna be worried about you.

Carly: What if his fever comes back? I can't live with that on my conscience.

Craig: Thank you, Carly.

Jack: Okay, h-he's ready.

Carly: Just go, Jack. There's someone else who needs you to save her tonight.

Jack: Okay. Have fun. Oh, and, Craig, your clothes reek of pond scum.

Craig: Where are they?

Jack: I trashed them.

Craig: Are you out of your mind? That's a $4,000 suit!

Jack: Not anymore.

Janet: You don't get to pass judgment on my marriage.

Dusty: Maybe the mistletoe was a moment of weakness, but this wasnít. You wanted it to happen. I wanted it to happen.

Janet: You don't know what I want. You really donít.

Dusty: You won't admit what happened between us meant something.

Janet: You don't know what you're talking about.

Dusty: Then why can't you look me in the eye right now?

Janet: Because I don't want to talk about this!

Dusty: Why not?

Janet: I'd rather just forget that it ever happened!

Dusty: Well, the more try to forget it happened, the more you can't think about anything else.

Janet: You are wrong. You are so wrong.

Katie: I saw Brad.

Henry: You did? For real?

Katie: Yeah. For real. He came to me on Christmas Eve. And we said goodbye.

Henry: Oh, Bubbles --

Katie: He's really gone now.

Henry: Yeah. Yeah, I think he is. I, uh, I had a goodbye with him myself. Are you okay?

Katie: I'm sad. But it feels right. I mean, I wish he was here, but I know he can't be anymore. And at least we got to say a real goodbye. It was really wonderful. We needed to let him go.

Henry: Well, believe me, he didn't want to let you go. But he loved you and Jacob enough to know that that's what he had to do.

Katie: Yeah, he did.

Henry: I missed that.

Katie: What?

Henry: That smile. It has been a long time since I've seen that smile.

Katie: I know.

Henry: Oh. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Your smile can light up a room. I think -- I think that's a sign.

Katie: I think it's time we put that kind of stuff to rest for a while. Are you thirsty? You want something to drink?

Henry: No. No, thanks. You know, you never really answered my question.

Katie: What question?

Henry: Well, when you opened the door, you were hoping that it was Simon, weren't you?

Katie: Oh, first you're a ghost whisperer, now you're a mind reader?

Henry: It's okay. It's okay. You don't have to answer me.

Katie: I asked Simon to leave. Why would I want him to come back?

Henry: You tell me.

Katie: I donít. I mean, I do feel bad that I asked him to leave, but even he agreed that it was best for both of us that he did.

Henry: Okay, then.

Katie: So, is he still sleeping on your couch?

Henry: Why do you ask?

Katie: Oh, no reason. I just -- he told me that he was only staying for a couple more days. I was just wondering if he was okay.

Henry: Oh, you don't have to worry about Simon. The man is bulletproof. Whatever he's doing, he's not spending New Yearís Eve alone.

Katie: No, I'm sure he's not.

Henry: And you're okay with that?

Katie: Why wouldn't I be?

Henry: No reason. Hey, you want to get a burger?

Katie: Now?

Henry: Yes, now. I didn't have a chance to eat before the power went out, and I'm starving. What do you say? That's no way to start a new year. Let's -- let's go over to Al's, get something to eat.

Katie: Are you serious?

Henry: Yes, I'm serious. Al's is open all night. And the roads are clear.

Katie: I can't take Jacob out now.

Henry: Okay, I'll tell you what. I'll call them for a takeout order, and then you can go pick it up.

Katie: Why me?

Henry: Because you've been cooped up in here, and you need to get out and have some fresh air. Don't worry, I will look after the little guy.

Katie: It would be kind of nice to get out for a bit.

Henry: Mm-hmm. I thought so. Go ahead. Go. I'll tell them to have it ready for when you arrive.

Jack: Janet? I cannot believe you're still here! I cannot believe that you waited here this whole time. It's been hours. I'm -- I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I missed our new year's date.

Janet: It's okay.

Jack: No, it's not. It seems like I've been doing that a lot to you lately, keeping you waiting.

Janet: No.

Jack: Yes. Yes, I -- yes, I have. Want to hear something funny?

Janet: What?

Jack: The entire time I was in that cabin, I think I finally got my head straightened out.

Janet: While you were in a cabin with Carly and Craig?

Jack: Well, maybe because of it. Yeah. Being there with them in the cold, in the dark, I got a chance to figure out what really matters in my life. Everything I thought about started with you.

Janet: We don't have to talk about this right now.

Jack: No, we do. Listen, I've got to say this, and you've got to hear it. You've been waiting for this. You deserve it. I love you. I would be honored if you let me come back home.

Janet: Jack --

Jack: I put a lot of strain on our marriage. I know that. And on you. I'm sorry. I really am. But it's a new year. We can start all over. And I wasn't really sure that you wanted to. I mean, you could have just written me off altogether. But when I came in and I saw you sitting there, I -- well, I hope that the fact that you had waited here this long means that you're willing to give me second chance.

Carly: Ah, here we go.

Craig: You're not serious.

Carly: Try it on. It looks like it'll fit.

Craig: That's not the point. You don't know how long it's been in there.

Carly: Craig, you have to wear something.

Craig: No, thanks. I'll take my chances.

Carly: Stop being a baby, and put it on!

Craig: Turn around.

Carly: Seriously?

Craig: I'd like some privacy.

Carly: Oh, for Peteís sake. You know, Jack probably did save your life. You could have thanked him.

Craig: Yeah, well, I'll send him flowers.

Carly: I'm serious.

Craig: You know, maybe if he hadn't acted as if he'd rather I didn't make it out of that pond.

Carly: That's Jack.

Craig: Unlike you, the rest of the world doesn't need to see past his many flaws.

Carly: Or yours.

Craig: Fair enough. You can turn now.

Carly: You look good.

Craig: It smells like the '80s.

Carly: [ Laughs ] Seriously, why did you go out there and try to be a hero when you're so sick?

Craig: I was thinking that I didn't want anything to happen to you.

Carly: You could've drowned in that pond. You could have died from hypothermia.

Craig: Tell me the truth. Would you have cared?

Henry: I think she's doing a lot better now, don't you? Yeah. It was a little dicey there, with your dad hanging around, but he did the right thing, and he moved on, and now your mom can move on with her life. I know you miss him. Yeah, we all miss him. [Chuckles] But you know what? I'm gonna do everything I can to be there for you. Whatever you need, whatever your mom needs, I'm gonna make sure you have it. I promise. I'm gonna be there for you two. For the rest of your lives.

Katie: I thought you were leaving.

Simon: I decided to stay.

Katie: Why?

Simon: I like it here.

Katie: Oh, now I see why Henry sent me for the takeout.

Simon: What do you mean?

Katie: Come on. What did he do, call right after I left?

Simon: I don't know what you're talking about.

Katie: Oh, really. You want me to believe that you weren't in on it.

Simon: In on what?

Katie: Henry sent me over here to run into you.

Simon: Oh, you know Henry. The guy's always on his own trip.

Katie: Okay, but how would he even know you were here? [Clears throat]

Man: Think you could give me that coffee before it's ice-cold?

Simon: Oh, yep, yep, yep. No worries. I'm on it. I'm on it.

Katie: What are you doing?

Simon: Working.

Katie: Here?

Simon: Yeah, you want to know tonight's specials?

Katie: I don't believe it.

Simon: Now you know why Henry knew I was here.

Katie: Why are you doing this?

Simon: Um, well, the main reason is -- I don't want to live the life I used to live. So I donated all the money I earned illegally to charities. Therefore, I needed a regular job. Henry needed a waiter. Here I am.

Katie: I don't believe it.

Simon: It's only until I find something more permanent.

Katie: Permanent? You're staying in Oakdale.

Simon: As I said before, I like it here. It's not a problem, is it?

Katie: Yeah, it's a problem. A big one.

Janet: You want me to give you a second chance after you spent New Year's Eve with Carly?

Jack: And Craig. Stuck in a cabin. Janet, look, I know you're upset. So was I.

Janet: About what?

Jack: About you kissing Dusty. And I understand that it doesn't compute. I've been spending weeks on my ex-wife's couch, okay? And all you did was kiss a friend once under the mistletoe. Let's just forget the whole thing.

Janet: What, just forget about the past?

Jack: Well, not forget, per se, but learn from it. Get our marriage back on track.

Janet: Is that what you really want?

Jack: Of course it's what I really want. You know, I learned something else, too. I've been playing with fire.

Janet: With Carly?

Jack: With you. You're a beautiful, desirable woman. I can't expect you to just sit around and wait for me. You're better than that.

Janet: I wouldn't be so sure.

Jack: I am. Let's not wait around anymore. Let's get on with it. Let's get our marriage going again.

Janet: Do you really mean it?

Jack: I do.

Janet: What happens when Carly calls again with some sort of an emergency or a crisis, huh?

Jack: All right, unless it has something to do with the kids, then she's gonna have to find somebody else.

Janet: Do you really mean that? Because that's the only way this is gonna work, right? You have to commit to us.

Jack: I know. It's not too late. We can still have that New Yearís date? Come on, I'll get us a room, champagne. Let's do this right.

Janet: We can't stay here.

Jack: Why not? What's stopping us?

Janet: We've got a bedroom at the farm. What do we need to spend money on a hotel room for?

Jack: It's okay to be impractical every once in a while. Come on, it'll be fun. We'll have all the privacy we need. It'll be just the two of us. And I hear they have new beds here with Jacuzzis.

Janet: Jack, I want to go home.

Jack: Why?

Janet: Because it's late and I'm tired.

Jack: Then why did you wait all this time for --

Janet: I've got my car out front, okay? I'll meet you at home.

Carly: Of course I would have cared. Put them on.

Craig: Is that the truth?

Carly: Yeah. I mean, how would I have explained all this to the police?

Craig: That's not the reason.

Carly: You're can think whatever you want.

Craig: You care about me, Carly. Why can't you just admit that?

Carly: How do they fit?

Craig: Perfectly. And if you didn't care about me, you would've left me here. And I appreciate that you stayed to look after me.

Carly: Well, you shouldnít. I would've done it for anyone.

Craig: We both know that's not true.

Carly: You know what I know? I know that you slept with my sister while I was in rehab, and then you broke her heart because, apparently you hadn't gotten me out of your system.

Craig: Yeah. I don't think I ever will.

Carly: Oh, enough. And I don't even want to get in to how we ended up here.

Craig: I thought you didn't want to talk about that.

Carly: You're right. I donít. It's not worth it.

Craig: I said I was sorry that I tricked you about the meeting.

Carly: Good. 'Cause if tricking me into spending time with you is your way of trying to start some relationship, you're worse off than I thought.

Craig: I don't think that.

Carly: Good.

Craig: I'd just like to think that we could still be friends.

Carly: I have enough friends.

Craig: I donít.

Carly: And you know something? The friends that I have, they wouldn't abduct me in the middle of a storm.

Craig: Okay. Everybody in the world is a better person than me. I get it. I just want to know if there's a chance.

Carly: There's no chance for anything.

Craig: Because of Jack?

Carly: Because of you!

Craig: And you'll never be healthy until you can get rid of him, too.

Carly: I don't need your advice.

Craig: I can help.

Carly: You want to help me? Stay the hell out of my life. [Knock on door] The ranger's back. We should go.

Craig: I meant what I said.

Carly: So did I.

Dusty: What are you doing here?

Teri: I can ask you the same question.

Dusty: It's late. Go home.

Teri: Happy new year to you, too.

Dusty: Yeah, right. Whatever.

Teri: Wow. Somebody's in a good mood.

Dusty: Well, I don't like seeing my top business asset wearing herself down.

Teri: That's probably the sweetest thing you've ever said to me. What happened? Did you get stood up?

Dusty: No, she was there.

Teri: Anybody I know?

Dusty: Would I tell you?

Teri: Sorry I asked.

Dusty: How'd we do tonight?

Teri: Not well. I mean, the band could only do one of their acoustic sets, and after that, everybody left. It's gonna take us weeks to make up what we lost.

Dusty: Don't worry about it.

Teri: There's a ton of food that went to waste, too.

Dusty: It's okay. Did it spoil?

Teri: No, the power wasn't out long enough. The refrigerator stayed cold.

Dusty: Food's good. We'll give it to Four Wheel Feast. They can give it to the food shelters around town. We'll pack it up in a second. What?

Teri: Nothing. You just -- you keep surprising me.

Jack: You are so right. It'll be great to be in our bedroom.

Janet: Jack --

Jack: I don't there's any champagne, but I know for a fact there's wine. So why don't you go upstairs, and I will bring you a glass. But first, come here.

Janet: Donít.

Jack: What's wrong?

Janet: I'm gonna take a shower.

Jack: Now?

Katie: You really want to go legit?

Simon: I want to give it a shot. Yeah.

Katie: Why here?

Simon: Okay, you know when people ask me where my home is, for that one split second before I lie, I always want to say Oakdale.

Katie: I just don't want this to be about you and me. But it is, isn't it?

Simon: No, not entirely. I mean, it's also about that little boy of yours. I think he's awesome.

Man: Honey, if he doesn't want you, I'll take you!

Simon: Excuse me? What?

Man: No, no, no! I'm just saying. 'Cause she's hot, and -- and I'm looking to party.

Simon: All right, man, I think your partying days are over. Come on. You're out of here. Let's go. Let's go. Let's go. Let's go. Hey, hey, pal, pal --

Man: Let go of me! Hey, where's my watch?

Simon: Hey, you're out. Go on. Happy New Year, Brother! Have a good one! How's that guy?

Katie: You wouldn't happen to know what happened to his watch, would you?

Simon: Oh. It was too classy for him anyway.

Katie: So much for going legit.

Simon: Hey, come on. Baby steps.

Katie: You can't keep it. You got to give it back.

Simon: But it's so nice! Okay, I'll take it to the police station and say the drunk fool left it here.

Katie: Say whatever you want. You're not keeping it.

Simon: See? You're just so good for me.

Katie: Is my takeout ready?

Simon: Oh, I'll check with the kitchen. That's where they make it. I'll be back in one second. All done. Do you want me to carry it?

Katie: Aren't you working?

Simon: Nah, I'm done.

Katie: Well, would you like to come back and share it?

Simon: You wouldn't mind?

Katie: Henry will be so disappointed if you donít.

Simon: Then I would love to.

Henry: Simon! What are you doing here?!

Katie: Oh, shut up. Where's Jacob?

Henry: He is clean and fed and sleeping in his room.

Simon: What are you watching?

Henry: What am I watching? This is "The Twilight Zone," my friend. They're doing a marathon. Episodes all night!

Katie: Oh, I wish I could watch TV all night. I have a baby.

Henry: What, I'm here to help. We can take turns zonking out. You know how much you love "The Twilight Zone."

Katie: I do. But only for a couple hours.

Henry: Okay, well, prepare to embrace the best of American culture.

Simon: Weren't these made, like, 50 years ago?

Katie: You've heard of it?

Simon: Yeah, I've heard of this mystical thing called American TV.

Henry: Yeah, I supposed in the outback, all you had to watch were crocodiles mating.

Simon: [Laughs] What?

Katie: Henry, help me with the food. Simon, you just make yourself at home.

Simon: Thank you.

Katie: You totally set me up!

Henry: I don't know what you're talking about!

Katie: Oh, really. Don't give me that. You knew Simon would be there, because you're the one who hired him!

Henry: Oh, did I forget to tell you that? I'm sorry. When I get hungry, I get absent-minded. I almost had some of Jacob's formula.

Katie: I don't need you running my life, Henry.

Henry: I want you to be happy.

Katie: Well, why don't you let me decide what that is.

Henry: Okay, fair enough. Come on, now you're missing it!

Katie: Oh, is this the one where that lady gets terrorized in her home, and then you find out she's a giant?

Henry: Don't ruin it!

Katie: Sorry. Sorry.

Simon: Don't worry about it. No worries.

Henry: Well, I'm sure they have television shows in Australia, but you've never seen anything like this!

Simon: So tell me something. Are they gonna show the one about the con man who can change his face to look like other people? That was my favorite. Oh, yeah, we used to wire the crocodiles for cable TV.

[Both laugh]

Craig: [ Coughing ] It was a costume party, okay?

Carly: Relax, Craig. You look great. Like you just won a couple of gold medals from the '84 Olympics.

[Laughs]

Craig: You coming up?

Carly: Why would I do that?

Craig: New year's Eve nightcap?

Carly: I'm an alcoholic, Craig. But thanks for the offer.

Craig: How about to see the view from my room?

Carly: Oh, I've seen the view. And while impressive, and I am no longer interested.

Craig: Carly -- thank you again for staying with me at the cabin. It means a lot to me.

Carly: Don't worry about it.

Craig: I didn't deserve it.

Carly: No, you didnít.

Craig: Carly?

Carly: What?

Craig: If you ever tell anybody that Jack Snyder gave me a sponge bath --

Carly: [Chuckles] Don't worry, Craig. Your secret is safe with me.

Craig: [Sneezes]

Jack: Oh! I poured you a glass.

Janet: It's -- it's too late. I just want to go to bed.

Jack: That sounds good to me.

Janet: Jack --

Jack: It feels good to me, too. Come here.

Janet: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Jack: No. Listen, I-I know I'm the reason for this distance between us. But I promise you that I am gonna do everything I can to fix that, and we are gonna be closer than ever.

Janet: I don't believe you.

Jack: Janet --

Janet: You ignore me for months, and then you disappear over and over again. You don't tell me where you're going, and now you're living with your ex-wife, and you want me to just forget about that?

Jack: I'm not asking you to forget it.

Janet: You're not asking me -- good! Because I can't! And taking me to bed isn't gonna make anything better, either.

Jack: That's not what -- Janet, that's not why I want to start this over.

Janet: It's too late, Jack. You're too late.

Jack: Okay, wait a minute. Y-you told me that you wanted to start over. So w-what changed? What happened between the shower and right now?

Janet: It's not as simple as that, okay? It's not as simple as that. You can't just waltz in here and expect us to get our lives back on track. You can't have your life back!

Jack: Janet, what is -- what is going on?

Janet: I can't explain it.

Jack: Try!

Janet: I think you should go. I want you to leave.

Jack: No. J-Janet, I'm not going any -- I'm not leaving you like this.

Janet: Really? It's not like you haven't left me before. As a matter of fact, you did it tonight.

Jack: Is that what this is about? Janet, talk to me. Please.

Janet: It's too late to talk. It's too late for everything.

Jack: No. No, it's not.

Janet: I can't do this anymore.

Jack: Janet.

Janet: I canít. Go! Go!

Katie: That was the best! Which one's n -- oh, good, you're asleep. My three boys.

Teri: Hey, Jan. Oh, my gosh. You will not believe what Dusty did tonight. He had me give all of our extra food to the homeless. It was like, I thought he would have me just throw it out, you know? But then he -- hey, are you okay, Jan?

Janet: [Sniffles] I think my marriage is over.

Teri: What? What happened?

Janet: I don't want to talk about it, okay? I just want to go to bed.

Teri: Okay. Okay. We can talk about it in the morning.

Janet: Okay.

[Sniffles]

Teri: Jan?

Janet: Yeah.

Teri: What's the story with you and Dusty?

Janet: What?

Teri: I mean, I know you guys spend a lot of time together, and, uh --

Janet: There's nothing going on between me and Dusty!

Teri: O-okay. Okay. I mean, that's -- that's good. I just -- you know, I think he's a really cool guy, and, you know, I mean, I know he's a bit older than me, but I think that wouldn't be a deal breaker for me. It wouldn't bother me.

Janet: Wait, wait. You and -- you and Dusty?

Teri: Well, I mean, I don't know how he feels, but I am so into him. And --

Janet: Theresa, he's your boss.

Teri: Well, I know, but I think we could make it work. I just -- I don't want to step on your toes, 'cause I know --

Janet: What are you talking about? I told you, there is nothing going on between me and Dusty! I'm married.

Teri: Oh. I thought you just said that your marriage is over.

Janet: I -- I can't talk about this right now, okay? I'm sorry.

Craig: I'm not giving up on us. Not yet, Carly.

[Knock on door]

Jack: Hey. Is that sofa still available?

Carly: Yeah. Come in.

Jack: All right.

Carly: What happened?

Jack: I'm not really sure. I told Janet that I wanted to come back for good, and she didn't want any part of it.

Carly: That doesn't make any sense. What did you say?

Jack: I tried to apologize, to tell her that I wanted things to be different, and she kicked me out. Said too much had happened, that I was too late.

Carly: After she waited all that time for you to come back?

Jack: I know. I don't get it, either.

Carly: Something must've happened, Jack.

Jack: Something did. My marriage ended.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Henry: Simon settled in here. He's not going anywhere. And I think you should be open to that. You should be open to him.

Clarissa: Simon Frasier. Looks like I came just in time.

Noah: I have to see again, and that's all that matters to me right now. Everything else is secondary.

Luke: Including me?

Lilly: God, could I be --

Lucinda: Pregnant?

Meg: Alone at last.
