Holden: She's not picking up.

Lily: I never thought this could happen to Faith.

Holden: Neither did I.

Lily: How many times did we talk to her about drugs? Are you 100% sure?

Molly: The headmistress at the school told me that Faith was using drugs and suspended. That's what Damian used to hold over her to get her to go along with his plans.

Holden: Why didn't you tell me about this before?

Molly: Because Faith swore to me that she was gonna tell you both.

Lily: And you took that at face value? She's a terrified teenager.

Molly: I was just trying to stay out of your family problems, Lily, which is what I thought you'd want.

Lily: Oh, no. Don't you turn this around on me. If something has happened to my daughter, I swear to God, Molly, I will hold you personally responsible.

Parker: Faith.

Faith: Surprise.

Parker: What are you doing here?

Faith: Nice. Aren't you glad to see me?

Parker: Yeah, but why -- why aren't you away at school?

Faith: They gave us a few days off.

Parker: Really? 'Cause J.J. doesnít have any time off.

Faith: Only my dorm. Rodent problem.

Parker: Gross.

Faith: Tell me about it.

Parker: So what are you doing here?

Faith: Didn't I just tell you.

Parker: Well, don't you go to boarding school like 90 miles away?

Faith: I just came to hang out. I didn't think it'd be a big deal.

Parker: Well, it's not. But --

Faith: What?

Parker: How did you get in the house?

Faith: Hello. It hasn't been that long. I still know where your mom keeps the spare key. So, can I stay?

[Jack sighs]

Carly: Hey.

Jack: Hey.

Carly: What do you have there?

Jack: Uh, books on pregnancy.

Carly: That's a lot of books. Little light reading, huh?

Jack: I just want to get caught up again on what it all means.

Carly: Pregnancy?

Jack: Yeah.

Carly: Well, you know, the process hasn't changed much in the last 10,000 years or so.

Jack: Hey, when you were pregnant, did you ever pass out the way Janet did?

Carly: No. I was light-headed a couple of times.

Jack: Do you think it means there -- there could be a problem?

Carly: No.

Jack: I wonder if she's taking her prenatal vitamins.

Carly: You know, Jack, it's gonna be an awful long nine months if you keep this up.

Jack: Yeah, Carly, I just don't want to feel disconnected, you know, even with the circumstances being what they are.

Carly: I'm sure Janet will take care of herself. And beyond that, all you can do is wait.

Jack: Yes, but I want to help.

Carly: If Janet needs anything, I'm sure she'll ask.

Jack: You're right.

Carly: So -- why don't we do something for ourselves instead?

Jack: Like what?

Carly: Why don't we start letting people know about us?

Jack: You mean like make a public announcement?

Carly: [Laughs] Like a statement that we're together no matter what is happening. U -- unless you have a problem with that.

Dusty: So, you already seen a lawyer about a divorce?

Janet: Well, that's the legal part of it, but what I really want is an annulment, and those aren't easy to come by.

Dusty: There's got to be a bishop I can pay off.

Janet: Dusty --

Dusty: Well, it's just an idea.

Janet: I'm not gonna pay off a bishop so I can get an annulment.

Dusty: Not you. Me.

Janet: [Laughs] Come on, now. You're mocking my religion here.

Dusty: Well, maybe I can get to a cardinal better.

Janet: Oh, stop it. The crazy thing is, I think you actually mean it.

Dusty: I just want to be with you.

Janet: Well, I'm here in your hotel room, aren't I? Oh.

Dusty: Is something wrong?

Janet: I can't be with you. Let's get Chinese

Dusty: I'm sorry I made the joke about the bishop and the cardinal.

Janet: No, no, no, no, no, no. That's not what I'm talking about. It's just this is all happening so fast.

Dusty: It feels right. Doesn't it?

Janet: Yeah, but I've got so much on my mind. I've got so many things to worry about, you know? If I tell you something, will you -- will you try not to be judgmental?

Dusty: I hope so.

Janet: Okay. I've been praying for Liberty every day since she got sick.

Dusty: Why would I judge that?

Janet: And I feel like if I allow myself a little bit of happiness, then that's gonna jinx her ability to get better, you know? So it's kind of like I'm hedging my bets. I don't want to take that risk with her. It's too important. You understand?

Dusty: What are you trying to say, Janet?

Janet: I just can't be with you while I'm married to Jack. I'm sorry.

Dusty: Don't apologize.

Janet: I mean, it even feels strange to talk about being engaged when everything is still up in the air.

Dusty: I understand.

Janet: Dusty, I want to be with you. I really do. But right now, I just don't know how I can make that happen.

Dusty: I do.

Holden: Why didn't you tell me that Ms. Gibson called for me?

Lily: You really can't figure that out? She kept quiet because she was trying to score points with you, and it totally backfired.

Molly: Oh, please.

Lily: And now Faith is out there wandering around, alone and in trouble.

Molly: I did not use Faith to score points with Holden.

Lily: You were trying to be her new best friend, but you can't be. You already made that mistake with Abigail, and look how well that turned out.

Holden: Lily, donít.

Lily: Come on! She's playing up to be the good guy.

Molly: That is so not true. You need to get over yourself, Lily. You are completely misreading my intentions here.

Lily: I don't think so. Teenage girls always rebel against their mothers. And when there's been a divorce and the father starts dating a new --

Molly: Faith's rebellion has absolutely nothing to do with me.

[Lily scoffs]

Holden: You know what? This is not getting us anywhere. Can we just stop this, please?

Lily: Don't defend her to me! Our daughter is missing, and your new girlfriend is the reason why!

Holden: All right, you know what? That's enough. I'm gonna go try and find Faith.

Lily: Not without me you're not.

Holden: Do me a favor. Will you just stay here in case she comes back?

Molly: Of course.

Lily: Yeah, and -- and this time, if she calls, how about calling her mother and father, okay?

Holden: You know what? Let's go.

Parker: So, you want to stay here?

Faith: And hang, yeah.

Parker: Okay, sure.

Faith: Cool. You seem kind of off.

Parker: I guess I got a lot of stuff on my mind. Sorry.

Faith: I know how tight you and Liberty are. Her being sick, it must be really hard on you.

Parker: For me not so much. For her, I -- I can't even begin to imagine what she has to go through at the hospital every day. She's trying so hard just to focus on getting better.

Faith: I bet you help her out a lot.

Parker: I try. I mean, I went to Minneapolis to visit her on the weekends. It's funny, because the situation itself, it sucks, but I think that we've gotten so much closer because of it.

Faith: You're a good friend.

Parker: She'd do the same for me.

Faith: When you're in trouble and people step up, that's when you know who's really on your side.

Parker: I guess.

Faith: I'm kind of hungry. Are you?

Parker: I'm always hungry.

Faith: Why don't you go and get us some munchies?

Parker: Or we could both go downstairs, and you can pick out whatever you want.

[Car approaching]

Faith: I think I heard a car drive up.

Parker: It was probably just my dad.

Faith: And your mom?

Parker: Probably here, too. Why?

Faith: I just feel a little weird seeing them.

Parker: Why? It's never been that way before.

Faith: I just used a hidden key to let myself in. They might think that's weird.

Parker: Well, it is weird, but I'm not gonna tell them about it.

Faith: Why can't you just go down and -- and get some stuff and bring it back up here?

Parker: Well, I -- I could. I -- I just, um --

Faith: Oh, no. My parents are here.

Parker: Faith, what is going on?

Faith: Nothing. Just -- they cannot know I'm here. Will you promise not to tell anybody? Parker, please.

Parker: Faith, slow down. You need to tell me right now what's really going on.

Jack: It's not just our decision to make, Carly.

Carly: Oh, I'm sorry. Someone else has a say in whether or not we make our relationship --

Jack: You know I'm talking about Janet. I'm still married.

Carly: Yeah, technically, but you're ending it.

Jack: Yes, I am. But to put our relationship out there like that --

Carly: You don't want to do that.

Jack: I would like a chance to talk to Janet about it first.

Carly: Well, I don't want to have to run my personal life by Janet.

Jack: I'm trying to be respectful of her feelings. That's all.

Carly: Oh, while she's trotting around engaged to Dusty?

[Doorbell rings]

Carly: Hey. Good timing. Come in.

Lily: Faith is here?

Carly: Faith?

Holden: She's not?

Carly: No. I thought she was at school.

Holden: Well, she was, but she's missing now.

Jack: What? Since when?

Holden: This afternoon. We're just checking everywhere we thought that she might turn up. We knew she was close with Parker, so --

Jack: What happened?

Holden: Well, it -- it's kind of a long story. We drove her back to school. We did not walk in with her. And now she's gone. She's not answering her cell phone.

Lily: And because Molly seems to think she can play God, she's just made things worse.

Carly: What does Molly have to do with it?

Lily: She knew there was a problem, and she decided to keep it to herself.

Carly: No, she didnít. Molly would never do that.

Lily: She admitted she kept it quiet, Carly, and I will give you two guesses why.

Holden: Lily --

Jack: Why -- why don't we go to the station? I'll make a few calls, call in some favors. We'll get as many feet on the ground looking for her before we call in a missing person's, okay? I know you're scared, but please, she's got to be close by and safe. All right, let's go. Come on. I, uh -- I'll be back, and we'll talk more later.

Carly: Can't wait.

Parker: So, why did you get suspended?

Faith: Pot.

Parker: Pot? Are you kidding?

Faith: It's so not a big deal.

Parker: Since when is getting busted for pot so not a big deal?

Faith: It's not like I was dealing or anything.

Parker: But you ran away when you got caught.

Faith: Because I don't want to deal with my parents right now. Is that so wrong? You have no idea what kind of pressure I'm under right now.

Parker: Yeah, 'cause your life is just so tough.

Faith: Why are you being this way?

Parker: Maybe it's seeing Liberty go through chemo in an isolation room and the fact that she might get a bone-marrow transplant before she graduates high school that makes hiding from your parents just seem a little bit stupid.

Faith: Thanks a lot.

Parker: You should just talk to them.

Faith: I canít.

Parker: Fine. What else are you gonna do?

Faith: Just let me stay here for a little while, and I'll figure it out.

Parker: I can't do that?

Faith: What are you, a narc all of the sudden?

Parker: No. Look, if I get caught hiding you here, I will get in trouble, and then I won't be able to go visit Liberty anymore. That's not an option for me, okay?

Faith: Fine. I'll just climb out the window, and nobody will even know I was here.

Parker: Where are you gonna go?

Faith: Don't worry about it.

Parker: Faith, just wait.

Faith: So you'll help me? I knew you'd come through. And I promise I won't get you in trouble.

Parker: Okay, you better not. But just wait here, okay? I'll get us some food, and we'll talk.

Faith: Thank you.

Parker: Mom? Dad? Mom. I didn't know you were home.

Carly: Yeah, I'm here. The question is, who else is?

Parker: What do you mean is someone else here?

Carly: You've got a lot of provisions there.

Parker: Well, you said it yourself. I'm like a bottomless pit.


Carly: Yes, you are. I didn't know you were home. Lily and Holden were just here. They're looking for Faith.

Parker: Why?

Carly: Well, apparently, they brought her to boarding school, and she left.

Parker: Wow.

Carly: Yeah. We thought maybe she would try to contact you.

Parker: Well, I -- I haven't heard from her. If I was them, I wouldn't worry. She'll let them know where she is eventually. I mean, she always did.

Carly: I hope so. I -- I was gonna tell Lily and Holden about your dad and me, but they seemed pretty focused on Faith.

Parker: Yeah. Probably wasn't the right time.

Carly: I'm starting to wonder if there ever will be a right time.

Parker: Well, I guess telling people that you and dad are back together when he and Janet are having a baby together, it doesn't always go over so well.

Carly: Yeah. But just so you know, this is very real for your dad and me. We are back together. It's just -- it's a complicated situation.

Parker: I know.

Carly: Okay.

Parker: I just want you guys to be happy.

Carly: Well, thank you. That is a nice thing to say. I know this has been a tough year for you, and everything that's going on with your dad and me is very confusing. But you've been amazing. You've grown up a lot in the last year.

Parker: Not really.

Carly: Yes, you have. You are a fine young man. You're a great young man. And you always do the right thing. And I'm very proud. I got to run out, but I'll be back shortly, okay?

Holden: I appreciate it, Ms. Gibson. Yeah, we'll talk about everything that happened later. Right now, I just want to find my daughter.

Lily: Sasha, this goes beyond friendship. If Faith even sends you a text message, you need to contact me immediately.

Jack: No, I don't want to do that just yet. Put the word out to all your guys, though, okay?

Lily: Thanks.

Holden: You have my cell, right? Thanks.

Jack: Keep me posted, Bob. Okay, I put the word out with three state police precincts between here and the school.

Lily: And I called all of her friends at school and everybody she knows here in case she contacts them.

Holden: The headmistress said that Faith's roommates saw her, but then she took off. Lily, they're on this. They don't want any bad press.

[Cell phone rings]

Lily: Maybe that's one of your contacts. Maybe they found Faith.

Faith: Everything okay?

Parker: Yeah. I saw my mom when I was downstairs, and she told me about your parents coming here looking for you and everything.

Faith: Thank you for not saying anything and letting me stay here.

Parker: Yeah, that's the thing. You can't stay here. I'm gonna take you to the farm.

Faith: What?

Parker: Well, there are plenty of more places to hide there than there are here.

Faith: There are people all over that place.

Parker: Well, my mom's here, and she's got radar. I mean, she saw me with all of this stuff, and I swear she knew just for a second. I know a thousand places there where nobody's gonna find you.

Faith: Do you really think so?

Parker: Yes. I'm positive. And I know that if you stay here, they are going to find you. So come on.

Carly: I saw you through the window. You might want to find a dark booth or maybe even another state to have that cup of joe.

Molly: What?

Carly: Lily's on the warpath. I think you are her intended target. But don't worry, I defended your honor.

Molly: Thanks, but you should have saved your breath. I already had my own earful from her.

Carly: Are you okay?

Molly: I'm fine. Just annoyed, and worried about Faith, of course. Here I try to do the right thing by all of them, and somehow I wind up the bad guy.

Carly: At the risk of stating the obvious, are you really surprised? You are the other woman, Cuz.

Molly: No, I'm not. I am not. Saying I'm the other women implies that I got together with Holden while he was still with Lily, and that is not what happened. And I'm the mother of his child, just like Lily is, except I didn't leave him for Damian like she did, and I love him.

Carly: Okay. Right. You don't have to convince me.

Molly: No, but I have to convince Lily so she stays away from us and lets us have a life together.

Carly: Good luck with that.

Molly: I know. She has to come to terms that it's over with Holden, period.

Parker: Okay, so we'll find you somewhere to hide, but we should probably get you some food and water first.

Faith: Why couldn't we hide first and then you go do that?

Parker: Well, you don't think that if I went into the kitchen and grabbed a bunch of food and water, it wouldn't look suspicious, too? Come on. Let's just --

Faith: You set me up?

Holden: Parker did the right thing, Faith.

Faith: This is your idea of being a good friend?

Parker: Actually, it is.

Lily: Faith, Sweetie, we were worried sick about you. We're not angry. We just need to talk about what's going on and figure out a way to work this out.

Faith: I can't believe you sold me out like this.

Parker: I did it for you, Faith.

Faith: You did it for yourself, jerk!

Lily: Thank you.

Holden: She's just angry. Thank you. I won't forget this.

Dusty: It's impulsive, but it's legal and it works.

Janet: Hold on. You want to fly to Santo Domingo today for a divorce?

Dusty: It's not something you do every day.

Janet: You got that right. What about Jack? I mean, how can I do this without him?

Dusty: You fax him the forms. He faxes them back. He's not gonna be out of the loop.

Janet: I don't feel right about leaving the country when Liberty's still sick.

Dusty: We'll take my jet. We'll be in and out the same day. Teri's looking after Liberty tonight.

Janet: How do you know?

Dusty: I know everything that matters to you, Janet. Let's do this.

Janet: I don't know.

Dusty: What don't you know?

Janet: Everything. This is -- is all happening so fast.

Dusty: Do you want to be with me or not?

Janet: Dusty, I want to be with you, but please try and understand where I'm coming from. I feel like I'm on a speeding train.

Dusty: I got you.

Janet: I know you think that you can fix everything, but sometimes -- sometimes you just canít.

Dusty: I hear you.

Janet: I mean, come on. It seems like just yesterday, I was married to Jack, in love, together. And after brad died, everything changed.

Dusty: I want to be your husband, Janet. I want to cherish what we have. I don't want to waste any more time.

Janet: Neither do I.

Dusty: Let's do it. What do you say?

Janet: I say let's do it.

Dusty: Really?

Janet: Really, yes. Let's go to Santo Domingo today.

Lily: We have a lot to talk about.

Holden: Starting with how you lied to us.

Lily: Actually, I think we should start with the underlying problem.

Faith: What's that?

Lily: Your drug use.

Faith: Mom, oh, my God! I am not a drug addict!

Holden: No one said that, Faith. But you were suspended because you were caught with drugs.

Faith: It was pot, Dad.

Lily: It doesn't matter what it was. You should have known better. You know that I have a problem with pills. You know that your brother has a problem with alcohol.

Faith: I'm not you or Luke.

Lily: No, but there is a chance that you could be more prone to it because it runs in the family. Faith, I have told you a million times to stay away from drugs of any kind.

Faith: I get caught with a couple of harmless joints and this is where you go with it? I'm telling you, school is making a big deal out of nothing. I was just trying to fit in a little. That's all.

Holden: If you're trying to fit in, then you're running with the wrong crowd, Faith.

Faith: I don't have any friends there, and I wasn't planning on making any.

Lily: Then why?

Faith: I just don't want to feel like a loser 24/7. I hate that place.

Lily: Sweetie, it takes time to make new friends at a new school.

Faith: Not me. I don't belong there, and I never did.

Lily: Well, if you felt this way, why didn't you call us? Why didn't you talk to your mom and dad about it?

Faith: What, Mom? You couldn't have shipped me off fast enough.

Lily: No. You applied to that school without us even knowing. You -- you made this big pitch to us at Christmas.

Holden: You know what? I'm not gonna let you turn this on us. You were the one who was suspended. You were the one caught with drugs. Whatever your reasons, we don't care.

Faith: Well, neither do I. I don't fit in, and I'm not going back, and you can't make me.

Carly: I know this is a bad day, but it does sound like you and Holden have -- have come together.

Molly: Yeah. I guess we have. I mean, it does feel like we keep hitting roadblocks, but somehow, they're not stopping us from moving forward.

Carly: Then you and I are on the same boat there.

Molly: What do you mean?

Carly: Jack and I are -- are just about ready to go public with the fact that we are together again, the roadblock of his soon-to-be ex-wife's soon-to-be blessed event notwithstanding.

Molly: You know you're not exactly gonna shock the world with that news.

Carly: [Laughs] I guess what it boils down to is that it doesn't matter what happens when what is meant to be is meant to be.

Molly: Oh, please.

Carly: What?

Molly: This "Meant to be" stuff -- what does it mean? Seriously, people have been saying that about Lily and Holden for years, and I am telling you, Carly, they are so not meant to be. They're not. I'll tell you what they are. They're over. Sometimes you find what you're looking for, and sometimes you donít. But it's not fate. It takes work.

Carly: I know.

Molly: And Jack -- Jack, he's with you now, and you're on the same page and everything, but keep in mind he was on the same page with you when he slept with his wife on demand to make that baby. Yes, I know it was to save Liberty's life and everything, but just don't be so sure that he's gonna walk away from her and that baby so easily is all I'm saying.

Carly: Is that all, really?

Molly: Oh, God. Oh, Honey, I'm so sorry.

Carly: Why? No, don't be sorry.

Molly: No, no.

Carly: It's what you think, and you are entitled to your opinion. You really are.

Molly: No, Honey, I am just in a heinous mood, and I shouldn't be taking it out on you. I love you. Jack loves you. He does. And you guys are gonna work things out. You always do. Don't listen to me.

Jack: You okay?

Parker: Not really.

Jack: Come on. You did the right thing. It really shows your maturity that you weren't willing to go along with Faith the way she was asking you to.

Parker: Yeah, but she hates me now.

Jack: She'll get over it.

Parker: I don't know. Just the -- the idea of running around and hiding from her parents -- I mean, it didn't work for us when we were younger. Why -- why would it work now?

Jack: Oh, boy. You've come a long way. I'm proud of you.

Parker: Thanks. I still feel like a jerk.

Jack: Once Faith works things out with her family, then she won't be mad at you anymore. But that's where she needs to be right now -- working things out at home.

Parker: Can I ask you something?

Jack: Sure.

Parker: What do you do when stuff at home doesn't work?

Jack: What do you mean?

Parker: You know Mom wants to be back together with you.

Jack: Well, I certainly hope so, because I want the same thing.

Parker: Okay. How are you really gonna work this out with Janet having a baby?

Jack: [Sighs] Yeah, I know it's a lot for you. But you got to believe that me and your mom, Janet and Dusty, that we're adults, and we know what this is really about. This gives Janet hope for Liberty's recovery. That's the bottom line, right? And this isn't too far off from when you were little and it was me and Hal. Things were complicated at first, but we worked it all out.

Parker: Yeah, but that was different. You guys were friends. You worked together. You and Dusty, I -- I don't know if I see that happening. Do you?

Jack: True. It'd be easier if Dusty and I were friends. But, uh, honestly, I can't stand the guy.

Janet: This is nuts.

Dusty: Yeah, but in a good way. I can't believe all this traffic.

Janet: I know. Hey, I told Teresa. I told her what we were up to.

Dusty: What did she say?

Janet: She says we're nuts. [Laughs]

Dusty: But she supports us.

Janet: And we both decided not to tell Liberty about this until we get back.

Dusty: That's a good idea. Did you tell Jack?

Janet: No.

Dusty: No? That's a surprise.

Janet: I just -- you know, I -- I just -- just not yet. I mean, I had to call Teresa because, you know, Liberty and the hospital, just in case something happens, they need to know where we are.

Dusty: Just fax them the forms when we get there and tell them to sign.

Janet: Well, I texted him and told him what we were up to, so, but I just didn't want to have a discussion about it, you know? And it's what we both wanted, you know? We both want to move on.

Dusty: One question.

Janet: No, I didn't bring my bathing suit.

Dusty: That wasn't my question.

Janet: Okay.

Dusty: Are you happy? ]

Janet: [Sighs] I am happy and hopeful for the first time in a very long time.

Holden: All right. [Holden sighs] Let's not worry about when you're gonna go back to school, okay? Faith, your mom and I -- we love you. We love you very much. We want you to be happy. We want you to be healthy.

Lily: I know there's been a lot of instability here at home. It's been hard for everyone.

Faith: Yeah, kind of.

Lily: And I know that I haven't been as tuned in to what's going on in your life as I should be, and I'm very sorry for that.

Faith: Gee, thanks.

Holden: But none of that excuses what you did. Let's forget about blame, all right? Let's just figure out how we move forward, where we go from here.

Faith: Fine.

Holden: If boarding school was a mistake, then fine. But staying here is no reward. And I want you to promise me that you are not gonna do drugs again.

Faith: I promise. I swear. Thank you. I just want this to be over for good.

Holden: I need to take that conference call. Is that okay?

Lily: Yeah, of course. Faith, listen to me. I know that we have a lot of work to do to rebuild our relationship.

Faith: I guess.

Lily: And what your father said is true. I love you very much, and I want us to be close again.

Faith: We can try to be.

Lily: It makes me so happy to hear that. And that brings me to another point. I don't think it's appropriate for you to have a friendship with Molly. Don't give me that look, Faith. I know that you turned to her during this crisis, but we're through that, and I want you to stick closer to home.

Faith: Question.

Lily: Sure.

Faith: Is this why you want our relationship to be better, because of Molly?

Lily: No. I want our relationship to be better because I love you and I'm your mother.

Faith: And you're just jealous because Molly is dad's girlfriend.

Lily: That is completely untrue.

Faith: You are completely in denial.

Lily: Don't you speak to me that way, Faith.

Faith: You don't want me to lie, right? Then you can start by learning how to tell the truth.

[Lily sighs]

Molly: Hey, Holden, it's me. I hope everything's okay and that you straightened everything out with Faith. I just want you to know that I'm thinking about you. Call me when you get a chance, okay. I was just leaving Holden a message.

Lily: He's on a conference call.

Molly: Oh, okay. Is everything all right?

Lily: I'm not sure, Molly. Faith is home.

Molly: Oh. That's good.

Lily: We all talked. There's a lot that we need to put back in order.

Molly: I understand that.

Lily: And I can't do that with you in Faith's life.

Molly: Come again?

Lily: Stop trying to be her friend. I mean it. It only confuses her. It makes her think that you're there for her and I'm not.

Molly: But that's not the way it is.

Lily: That's my bottom line, okay? I have no control or interest in what you have to do with Holden. But that is not the case when it comes to who is in my daughter's life.

Molly: And you're telling me that I can't be?

Lily: Yes, I am.

Molly: I am sorry to tell you this, Lily, but you can't control me, and there's no way in hell I'm agreeing to this.

Janet: This isn't moving at all.

Dusty: It's my plane. They won't leave without us.


Janet: This is so weird.

Dusty: What?

Janet: I have to get used to being with a guy who has his own plane. You're spoiling me.

Dusty: Is that a complaint?

Janet: What do you think?

Dusty: I think we're gonna have it all. Gonna have a beautiful life with all of our children, everyone together.

Janet: Okay, now you're taking my breath away.

Jack: [Sighs] Faith is back home with her parents.

Carly: Good. Oh, you want some coffee? I just made a pot.

Jack: Yes, I would love some. Thank you so much.

Carly: Here. Have mine.

Jack: Oh. Great.

Carly: Be right back.

Jack: When did this come in?

Carly: I can get you -- is something wrong?

Jack: I just read a text that came in a while ago.

Carly: From whom?

Jack: Janet.

Carly: Does she need something from you?

Jack: She and Dusty are headed to Santo Domingo for a quickie divorce.

Carly: Why would that upset you? That's a good thing.

Jack: She did this without consulting with me first.

Carly: You agreed to the divorce.

Jack: Like this?

Carly: What difference does it make?

Jack: Oh, wow! Well, let's see. How about she's pregnant, and she's headed to some -- deserted island.

Carly: [Laughs] Okay. [Clears throat] Firstly, Santo Domingo is not deserted, Jack, okay? Secondly, she's not about to give birth, for Peteís sake. She's still in her first trimester. And thirdly and most importantly, she is with Dusty. She'll be fine.

Jack: Okay, okay. What if something goes wrong, though? What if something happens with the baby?

Carly: I'm pretty sure they have doctors there.

Jack: They should have discussed this with me before they took off.

Carly: She's getting the divorce. She's doing the right thing. Why does that upset you?

Jack: Because she's not the only one who gets a say in how this goes down!

Carly: What are you doing?

Jack: Fixing the problem right now.

Molly: You're not living in the real world, Lily. I hate to tell you.

Lily: Excuse me?

Molly: Yeah, I am with Holden. I'm in his life. And his life includes your kids.

Lily: Don't get too ahead of yourself, Molly. As usual, you are missing the point here.

Molly: Am I, really? Because I thought I was exactly on point. Holden and I are together, and I care about Faith, and I really think that I can help her.

Lily: [Scoffs] Please. All you care about is looking good for Holden, which you can do any way you want as long as it doesn't include any of my kids.

Molly: Man, that is really uncanny.

Lily: What is?

Molly: How much Lucinda was in that little speech. Like mother like daughter.

Lily: I am trying to protect my daughter. Nothing more, nothing less.

Molly: Trying to protect her from me? Where were you when Damian went after her?

Lily: Nobody regrets the mistakes made with Damian more than I do. But I do not want you in my daughter's life.

Molly: Well, too bad, Lily. Let me tell you something. You have a rebellious teenager, and I went through that with Abigail, so I can help Faith in a way that you can't, because you're her mother.

Lily: You can't force your way in.

Molly: Exactly.

Lily: What?

Molly: I'm talking about you, the way you're trying to force yourself into my relationship with your ex-husband.

Lily: I've told you, I don't care about you and Holden being together.

Molly: Yes, you do. Yes, you do. That's all this is about and you know it, so I'm gonna say this for the last time. Back off.

Holden: You okay? I'll take that as a yes. Where's your mom?

Faith: Probably buying me a new playpen.

Holden: Honey, come on.

Faith: Dad, I know why you're upset, and I get that I have to change like everything. But do you know what mom was on me about?

Holden: No.

Faith: Molly. Mom doesn't want me to hang out with her, and she says that she needs to keep an eye on me.

Holden: Well, your mom, she's just feeling a little overprotective because you were in trouble. Can you just cut her some slack? She loves you, okay?

Faith: What about this thing with Molly? She's not a bad influence on me, Dad.

Holden: Just try and stay out of trouble. Give your mom a break. Will you do that for me?

Faith: I'll try.

Holden: Thank you.

Parker: Hang in there, Liberty. If you can't sleep, watch some really bad movies. You know I'm right. Okay. Talk to you later. Bye. Damn it, that little --

[Doorbell rings]

Carly: Jack?

Dusty: Where is he?

Janet: How could Jack do this?

Carly: What are you doing here? I thought you two were on your way to Santo Domingo.

Dusty: They grounded my plane.

Janet: They said it was a police matter.

Dusty: It was Jack.

Janet: Did you know about this?

Carly: Hell no. Jack?

Jack: Hmm?

Carly: Did you seriously ground their plane?

Jack: I just called in a few favors at air traffic control. That's all.

Janet: How could you do that?

Jack: How could you fly off to divorce me and let me know by text?

Dusty: She doesn't want to talk to you.

Jack: Not good enough.

Janet: You can't tell me what to do.

Jack: I am not, but flying off with this guy to some remote island when you're pregnant with my baby is a problem with me, okay?

Dusty: No, actually, it's not okay.

Jack: You know what you can do, Donovan? You --

Janet: Ow! Oh, God!

Dusty: Janet, Janet.

Janet: Oh, God, the baby.

Jack: Have a seat. Come on. Sit, sit, sit, sit, sit.

Janet: The baby. Oh, my God.

Jack: Take your jacket off.

Janet: Oh, God. Oh!

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Barbara: I have a date, too.

Henry: Who?

Barbara: Hello, handsome!

Craig: You think she could know that I'm using Parker's trust fund, that she's setting me up? You really think she's working with the FBI?

Dusty: I'm gonna take her back to my place.

Jack: What are you talking about? You just heard the doctor. Janet's in bed. She can't go anywhere. She's gonna have to stay here.

Janet: But I will never, ever regret being married to you. A part of me will always love you.

Jack: And a part of me will always love you, too.
