Carly: And why didn't you call for help?

 Gabriel: Because I lost my phone in the car.

Craig: I'm telling you, Ellis, I'm gonna have to pay Gabriel whatever he wants. Punk has me over a barrel. If he tells Carly that I used Parker's trust fund to get Monte Carlo up and running, she's gonna filet me like a trout and serve me for dinner.

Ellis: So put the money back in Parker's trust and get out. It's not like you've got a shot with her anyway.

Craig: As long as I'm breathing I have a shot.

Ellis: Craig, blackmailers rarely settle on a single payment.

Craig: Yes, but one payment buys me time -- maybe give me time to figure out how to get this little gnat out of my hair for good.

Gabriel: Sorry, am I interrupting?

Craig: No, not at all. We were just wondering how to ship you off to Patagonia without you noticing.

Gabriel: Well, you wouldn't -- you wouldn't want to do that, Craig. You'd miss me too much.

Craig: Why are you here?

Gabriel: Just to work. You guys can continue plotting your next big scam. I'll just pretend not to listen in. [Chuckles]

Faith: Parker, hey.

Parker: Hey. Hey, how's it going?

Faith: Good. Actually, really good. I'm finally free.

Parker: What does that mean?

Faith: Well, I moved back to the farm, which means I'm away from my mom, which means I'm very happy.

Parker: Well, congrats, then. See you later.

Faith: Parker, hold up! Want to get a burger or something?

Parker: Um, sorry, I canít.

Faith: Something better to do?

Parker: Liberty's got a doctor's appointment and kind of a big one.

Faith: So you're gonna go meet her there?

Parker: No. No, I wish. I don't think she really wants me there today.

Faith: You've practically been with her throughout her whole sickness. Why wouldn't she want you there?

Parker: She said that she needed a break from me.

Liberty: You're nervous because you think it's gonna be bad news.

Janet: No, I'm excited because I know it's gonna be good news. Don't you think we deserve a little good news for once?

Liberty: Mom? What's wrong?

Janet: I don't know.

Liberty: Is it the baby?

Janet: No. No, I just, um -- I -- I don't know. Something happened. I can't explain it.

Liberty: Do you want to sit down or something?

Janet: No, Sweetheart. It's, um -- it's fine. It's nothing to worry about.

Cop: Mr. Donovan, we're gonna need a statement.

Dusty: I'll meet you at the station.

Janet: I'm probably just anxious because of all this waiting.

Liberty: You sure?

Janet: Honey, I should be fussing over you, not the other way around.

Liberty: Hey, we Ciccones look after each other.

Janet: Amen to that. Have I told you that I am so proud of you? You are so brave and so strong.

Liberty: I get it all from you.

Janet: Oh, no. You're my hero, Honey. And this baby is gonna be so lucky to have a big sister like you.

Liberty: This baby will be lucky just to have you as a mom.

[Janet giggles]

Liberty: Remember how you always said it was sort of easier when it was just the two of us?

Janet: Yeah.

Liberty: I always thought you were right. And -- and I was totally cool with how things were when I was growing up. But now it's kind of cool to be part of a big family. And it's even better now that you won't have to go through having this baby all alone.

Janet: Amen to that, too.

Carly: Why can't you just admit it, that you used every excuse you could think of to keep Janet and Liberty here because you want them to be here?!

Jack: I never used any excuses, Carly! It doesn't matter if I like it or not. Living here is their only option right now. They got nowhere else to go.

Carly: What about a hotel? They could stay with her father. They could live in the house that Dusty bought for them!

Jack: Why is it wrong to make sure that my baby's protected and safe?

Carly: It's not. I just want you to admit the truth, that you want Janet to live with you because you still want to be a part of her life while she's carrying your baby?!

Jack: Okay, all right, you're right! I do. Just so we're clear, I'm not apologizing for wanting to take care of my unborn child.

Carly: Well, nobody is asking you to apologize. I just don't want you to act like you've been forced into this situation. You chose to have them live here!

Jack: Please. What choice did I have? Janet's feeling overwhelmed with everything right now with Liberty's cancer, her father having a heart attack, Dusty being shot. So yes, I feel a sense of responsibility for Janet even though we are divorced.

Carly: Please don't list for me the trials and tribulations of Janet! I heard it all!

Jack: And why are you so completely unsympathetic?

Carly: 'Cause, Jack, there comes a time when enough is enough!

[Cell phone ringing]

[Carly sighs]

Jack: [Sighs] Snyder. Yeah, all right. I'll be right there. I have to go.

Carly: Of course you do.

Jack: Carly, it's my job.

Carly: I know, I know. It just seems like it's always something these days.

Jack: We'll finish talking about this later.

Carly: Maybe you can think about what we've already talked about.

Jack: Carly, I know this isn't easy for you, and I know I'm asking a lot.

Carly: Yeah, you are.

Jack: But it is not gonna be like this forever.

Carly: Oh, because it will be so much easier when Janet actually has the baby?

Jack: We've been through so much, you and I, and we have always found a way back to each other.

Carly: That's why this is so frustrating. It just -- it feels like we're not gonna make the last step.

Jack: No, we will, soon. I promise. Just hold on a little while longer, okay? I won't be long.

Carly: Go. Do what you got to do.

Dusty: I guess it was my idea to go after the guy who shot me.

Cop: You're not sure?

Dusty: Rocco knew where to find him. I didn't want him coming with me 'cause he just had a heart attack, but he insisted.

Cop: Then it was his idea to tag along, not yours?

Dusty: He said he was up for it. He felt strong. Am I done? I got to make a call.

Craig: Give me that!

Gabriel: What's the matter? You worried I'm gonna find something else I could use against you?

Craig: You are unbelievable.

Gabriel: See, that's your problem, Craig. You're not taking me very seriously, okay? Unless you want me to tell Carly that you're stealing her son's money to fund this little project of yours --

Craig: I took you seriously enough to hand you $20,000 the other day.

Gabriel: [Laughs] That's pocket change. Actually, it's already gone. I'm gonna need some more.

Craig: How do you go through that kind of money in a couple of days?

Gabriel: Well, it's easy. I used it on a down payment for a sweet ride -- beautiful sports car loaded to the max. You're gonna love it.

Craig: You're enjoying this, aren't you?

Gabriel: More than you know.

Craig: And this is all just payback for Bryant?

Gabriel: I guess you still feel, uh, pretty guilty about his death, huh?

Craig: Yes, I do. Not a day goes by I don't miss him.

Gabriel: I suppose you think that gives you a free ride to do whatever you like.

Craig: You have no idea what it's like to lose a son.

Gabriel: Ow, ow! Damn it! Ow.

Faith: Liberty told me how you didn't want to be just friends with her.

Parker: That's great.

Faith: She also told me that you're her best friend in the whole world.

Parker: Well, if that's true, then how come she's trying to push me away?

Faith: Maybe she just feels a little smothered because she knows how much you care about her.

Parker: I want to be there for her. I want to help her get through this.

Faith: Sometimes people just need a little space, even if you don't think they need it.

Parker: That's great.

Faith: You know what? Forget I said that. You should be with her today.

Parker: I don't know. I don't want to just show up there and make her even more mad at me than she already is.

Faith: What if I come with you? That way, it will just be a casual visit from friends. What do you say?

Parker: It sounds like a good idea.

Faith: So let's go.

Parker: Well, is there anybody that you should check with first?

Faith: No. Not anymore. I can do what I want when I want.

Parker: Let's go.

Janet: Okay, the nurse at the station said the doctor had an emergency, so it will be a few more minutes.

Liberty: That's fine. I'm okay.

Janet: Look at you, all tranquil. When did you finally find Zen?

Liberty: Well, if nothing else, cancer has taught me to be patient.

Janet: Well, can some of that rub off on me, please?

[Cell phone rings ]

Janet: Oh.

Liberty: Is that -- Dusty? Why aren't you gonna take it?

Janet: I don't feel like talking to him right now.

Liberty: Is something wrong?

Janet: Nothing you need to worry about. It's a long story.

Liberty: I think we have time.

[Janet sighs]

Liberty: What did he do? What did you do?

Janet: Oh -- we're just having some issues right now. It's, you know, I'm -- I'm a little mad at him.

Liberty: Well, avoiding him is not gonna solve anything. You and Dusty are great together. Whatever's wrong, work it out.

Janet: Later.

Liberty: No, now. Call him back. I mean it.

Janet: Yes, Ma'am.

Liberty: Okay.

[Cell phone rings]

Dusty: Hey, Janet.

Janet: What do you want? I'm kind of in the middle of something.

Dusty: I need to see you. Can you come to the police station?

Janet: Why are you at the police station?

Dusty: I don't want to tell you over the phone.

Janet: Well, I'm with Liberty. So whatever it is, it's gonna have to wait.

Dusty: It can't wait. Please.

Janet: All right. I'll see what I can do.

Liberty: What's wrong?

Janet: It was Dusty. He's at the police station. He wants me to meet him there.

Liberty: Then you should go.

Janet: Well, I don't want to leave you alone.

Liberty: Mom, I have survived much worse than waiting for the doctors by myself. And look at that. I won't even have to. Here come reinforcements. Hi, guys. What are you doing here?

Faith: Uh, we bumped into each other in Old Town and thought we'd stop by to see what the doctor had to say.

Liberty: Well, nothing yet. I'm still waiting to see him.

Parker: Well, you want some company while you do?

Liberty: You bet. My mom was just leaving. Right, Mom?

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

Liberty: Go. Dusty said it was important.

Janet: It better be. Come here, you. See you later.

Liberty: Okay.

Dusty: Janet --

Jack: Sorry, just me.

Dusty: You know what happened?

Jack: Pretty much.

Dusty: If I knew how weak Rocco really was, I wouldn't have let him come with me.

Jack: But you did let him.

[Dusty sighs]

Dusty: He said he was up for it.

Jack: Did it ever occur to you that he was wrong, that maybe you should have let the police department handle this? A man is dead, Dusty, because of you and your bad decisions.

Dusty: I know.

Jack: You're gonna have to face Janet and tell her.

Dusty: I just called. She's on her way.

Jack: Well, I'm gonna process the shooter, but this is far from over.

Dusty: Look, I feel bad enough, you know?

Janet: Bad enough about what? Dusty, what's going on?

Gabriel: You -- you got a first-aid kit or something?

Craig: Well, you see, grown-ups know how to be careful. We don't play with fire.

Gabriel: I'm not kidding, man. This really hurts. I need some burn cream or something.

Craig: Tell that to someone who cares.

Carly: Hey. What's going on?

Craig: Uh, junior had himself a little accident. Oh -- oh! This is bad.

Craig: Tell him to put some ice on it and quit whining.

Carly: Craig, this is a serious burn. He should go to the emergency room.

Craig: Brought it on himself. He can take care of himself.

Carly: Don't listen to him. You really should go and have this looked at.

Craig: I'm not paying workman's comp for carelessness.

Carly: What is the matter with you? Are you -- are you trying to get back at him because he ratted you out to me?

Craig: Well, maybe that burn is some sort of cosmic payback.

Carly: Gabriel, as your boss, I insist that you go to the emergency room and you have that hand looked at. And the company will pay whatever it costs.

Gabriel: I can pay my own bills.

Carly: Let us know what they say.

Gabriel: You bet.

Carly: Well, you really enjoy seeing people you don't like get hurt, don't you?

Craig: Oh, I give that kid about as much thought as I would a mosquito. What? Have I rendered you speechless? Where is the, uh -- the lecture on how I should have compassion for the hired help?

Carly: I just don't have time for that. I have to focus on the designs for the new line. I've been thinking about that idea you had.

Craig: I've had so many brilliant ideas, I can't imagine which one you mean.

Carly: The trip to Milan.

Craig: Oh. So you still want to go.

Carly: I think it could be productive.

Craig: So do I. That's why I suggested it. Kids or no kids?

Carly: Kids. Absolutely kids. It will be fun.

Craig: Okay. But before I go and spring for first-class airfare for all of us, you want to tell me what Jack's done now?

Liberty: It's really nice of you guys to stop by. I'm glad you're here.

Faith: See? Told you.

Liberty: Told him what?

Parker: Nothing.

Faith: Parker thought you didn't want him around anymore.

Parker: Faith --

Liberty: Parker, that is so not true. You've been great, my best friend through all of this. Look, I'm sorry if I made you feel like I didn't want you around. This chemo has definitely messed with my moods.

Parker: Faith's exaggerating a little bit. I just didn't want to crowd you.

Liberty: You haven't and you donít. I'm glad you both are here, seriously.

Gabriel: Hey. How's it going?

Liberty: What happened to you?

Gabriel: Uh, nothing. Well, I mean, I burned my hand at work, but, uh, it's no big deal.

Liberty: Right. No big deal.

Faith: They know each other?

Parker: Yeah, and unfortunately, he has a habit of showing up when nobody really wants him to.

Liberty: What are you guys talking about?

Parker: Nothing. No big deal.

Doctor: Sorry to keep you waiting, Liberty.

Liberty: That's fine. You're here now. And I'm definitely almost ready to hear the news.

Gabriel: Uh, is it all right if we come in with her, Doc? I mean, so you don't have to hear the news alone.

Liberty: I have a fairly large support group.

Doctor: I don't see why they can't all come with you.

Janet: This better be important, Dusty. I was just at the hospital with Liberty. We're waiting on some very important test results.

Dusty: Couldn't wait.

Janet: Okay, so what is it already?

Dusty: After you left the hospital, I stayed with your father. He told me he wanted to make things right.

Janet: He did. You were there when he apologized for treating me so badly when I was pregnant with Liberty.

Dusty: He was talking about my shooting.

Janet: Well, why would he talk about your shooting?

Dusty: He said he wanted to help me find the guy who did it, that he owed it to me, more important that he owed it to you.

Janet: Well, you didn't listen to him, did you? I mean, he's in no condition to go out and play a hero.

Dusty: It was about justice.

Janet: "Was"?

Dusty: He knew where to find the guy.

Janet: No. No, no, no, no, no. No, no, it was Uncle Ralph who sent that guy after you, not Pop.

Dusty: Well, your father set things in motion with Ralph.

Janet: Set things -- no, no.

Dusty: I know it's hard for you to accept, Janet, but it's the truth. That's why he wanted to set things right.

Janet: Set things right how?

Dusty: He was feeling strong. We went after the guy together.

Janet: What?! He just had a heart attack! He was in no condition to go after any guy!

Dusty: He said he was up for it.

Janet: Oh, this is ridiculous. I can't believe you. I'm gonna go to the hospital and find my dad.

Dusty: He's not in the hospital, Janet.

Janet: Then where is he? Well, what is going on?!

Dusty: Sit down.

Janet: You're scaring me.

Dusty: Your father was a hero. We got him. Jack's booking him now.

[Voice breaking]

Janet: I don't care about any other guy. Where's my dad?

Dusty: Gone.

Janet: No. No. No.

Dusty: I tried to resuscitate him. Janet, it was too late.

Janet: Oh, my God.

Dusty: It was just too late.

Janet: Oh, my God!

Dusty: I'm sorry.

Janet: No!

Dusty: I'm sorry.

Janet: No! No, it's -- it's not possible. He can't be dead.

Dusty: Janet, I wish I could take it back.

Janet: But you can't, can you? I got to get out of here.

Dusty: Janet, Janet, wait, wait, wait.

[Voice breaking]

Janet: I can't be around you right now.

Jack: Okay, do me a favor and -- file that, thanks. Janet --

Janet: Tell me it's not true. Tell me he's okay.

Jack: I'm sorry.

Janet: Why? I just got him back.

Jack: Janet, have a seat. I'll grab you a glass of water.

Janet: Jack, I want to see him. Where is he?

Jack: You really got to try to take it easy right now, okay?

Janet: I want to see him, Jack. Where is he?

Jack: The morgue.

Janet: Will you take me to him? Please.

Jack: Come on.

Craig: Why don't you just talk to me like a friend? I know you, Carly. You're obviously about to pop over something.

Carly: I'm just -- I'm tired of feeling like a monster in my own home.

Craig: Because Janet's there?

Carly: I feel for her. I really do.

Craig: Yeah, but you're at the end of your rope.

Carly: Yes, I am trying really hard to be sympathetic. But Jack and I have no privacy. Whenever I turn around, there she is! So I -- I, um -- I blew up. I said what I had to say. I -- I said everything I was feeling.

Craig: I bet that was colorful.

Carly: Mm.

Craig: So who'd you blow up on? Was it Jack?

Carly: And Janet.

Craig: Oh. How did they take that?

Carly: Jack was not impressed. We're not even close to being on the same page.

Craig: Why am I not surprised? God forbid the guy should ever back you up.

Carly: Maybe I -- maybe I did go a little overboard.

Craig: With what? Attacking a pregnant woman whose father just had a heart attack and whose daughter has cancer?

Carly: Thank you, Craig. I can always count on you to make me feel worse than I already do.

Craig: Well, maybe you did go overboard, but Jack still bears a little bit of blame for what happened.

Carly: How do you figure that?

Craig: Look what he did. He put you between a rock and his ex-wife. I mean, you had no place to go but ballistic.

Carly: I certainly didn't disappoint.

Craig: Yeah, well, maybe you shouldn't have gone off on Janet, given her situation, but you shouldn't have had to go off at all.

Carly: And I hate the situation. I hate her situation. I hate my situation. I hate that she's living in my house. I hate that she's carrying Jack's baby. I hate that she needs him. And you know what I hate even more than that?

Craig: What's left?

Carly: I hate what it's turning me into.

Craig: What?

Carly: An angry shrew. And the worst part is, I can't even be an angry, drunken shrew.

Craig: Well, it wouldn't help if you could. But I do know a few things that can make you feel better.

Liberty: Don't hold back. I'm ready. Whatever the news is, I can take it, good or bad.

Doctor: Luckily it's good. The cancer seems to be retreating.

Liberty: Are you serious? I'm gonna be okay?

Doctor: We'll ease off the chemo and just do maintenance radiation.

Parker: I knew it. I told you.

Faith: This is great news.

Liberty: God, I've got to tell my mom!

Faith: I'm so happy for you.

Parker: You beat it. You did it.

Liberty: Just like you always said I would. I can't believe it.

Parker: I never had a doubt.

Liberty: Come here, you.

Janet: Oh, Pop -- it hurts to see him like this.

Jack: I know it does. I'll give you a minute alone, okay?

Janet: No. Please stay. It's ironic. For so many years, I wished that he was dead. At least I thought I did. But what I really wanted was to hear him call me his daughter again and to tell me that he wasn't ashamed of me.

Jack: You got that wish.

Janet: But now he's gone. There's so much left unsaid.

Jack: He died knowing that -- that you had forgiven him.

Janet: I hope so.

Dusty: He knew. Jack, can you leave us a minute?

Jack: Yeah. Uh, I'll be upstairs.

Dusty: I don't know what to say.

Janet: I want to know how you could let a sick man leave the hospital.

Dusty: He said he was fine. I was wrong.

Janet: Yeah. [Janet laughs] Yeah, you were wrong. And now he's gone. I will never have him back. He will never know Liberty or this baby. You took him away from me. Because of you, my father is dead.

Dusty: Listen, there was nothing I could have done to stop your father from going after this guy.

Janet: Is that what you think?

Dusty: He was determined to make things right.

Janet: How is any of this right, Dusty? My father is dead, and there is nothing you can say that's gonna justify to me what happened.

Dusty: He loved you. He wanted to make amends.

Janet: He already did that. He didn't have to go chasing after some guy to prove it. And maybe you think that you couldn't have stopped him, but maybe I could have if you had just come to me first to tell me what was going on.

Dusty: I'm sorry.

Janet: I had a chance to get to know my father all over again, and he would have made an amazing grandfather to this new baby and to Liberty. And now he'll never get the chance.

Dusty: What can I do?

Janet: Nothing. You've done enough.

Jack: Janet --

Dusty: Don't shut me out.

Janet: I can't even look at you anymore.

Liberty: Mom, why aren't you answering your phone? [Liberty groans] Anyway, call me back as soon as you get this, okay? Love you. Bye.

Gabriel: So, what do you guys think?

Faith: About what?

Gabriel: My new ride.

Faith: Get out. This is yours?

Gabriel: Yeah. Just got her today.

Faith: Sweet!

Liberty: Hey, Parker, it's just like the one you had.

Parker: Yeah, let's not go there, okay? I'm trying to completely erase that from my mind.

Liberty: Right. Sorry. Forgotten.

Parker: You know, a car like this isn't cheap? Did my mom and Craig just suddenly quadruple your salary?

Gabriel: Yeah, actually, they just made me a partner. Turns out I'm a fashion genius.

Faith: Seriously, Dude, how can someone your age actually afford a car like this?

Liberty: Maybe he's been saving for a long time. Some people do that.

Gabriel: Does it really matter how I got it, huh? Point is it's mine. So, who's up for a ride?

Faith: Me.

Liberty: Me too. I call shotgun.

Gabriel: Shotgun? Hell, you just got good news. You get to drive.

Liberty: Are you serious?

Gabriel: She's all yours.

[Liberty laughs]

Liberty: Thank you.

[Liberty laughs]

Craig: Oh, I'm telling you, Carly, you have no idea what you're missing here.

Carly: For the last time, Craig, I am not having a couple's massage with you. It's way too weird.

Craig: It's not couple's massage. Its two singles.

Carly: Okay. Call it whatever you want. Still, I'm not gonna lie down naked next to you. It's the middle of the work day, for Peteís sake. I should be focused on my designs here.

Craig: Well, you can't create if you're tense. Oh, right there, right there. Right -- oh! Oh, that's it. Perfect. Oh, man. I tell you what, there is nothing better to relieve tension. Alan, just give her a little bit of your magic. You know, work on her neck or something.

Carly: No, Alan, really, I don't -- I would really prefer it if you didn't -- ooh. Oh, that is nice.

Craig: I told you so. Come on. Nirvana is just a few deep-tissue rubs away.

Carly: Okay, well, maybe a little -- a little rubdown wouldn't hurt anything.

Liberty: Let's order. I am starving. And I can finally break my stupid cancer diet. I'm gonna have a mound of fries and a big chocolate shake.

Gabriel: Well, maybe you should ease yourself off the diet, uh, instead of jumping full-fledged into fast-food land.

Parker: I think she should get whatever she wants. You should give yourself a treat for the first time in a while.

Liberty: I want to, but maybe Gabriel's right. I don't want to get sick to my stomach now that I'm finally off chemo.

Gabriel: I think that's a smart choice. You know, fries are too greasy. Chocolate has caffeine. If I were you, I'd go vanilla.

Parker: What are you, a health nut or something?

Gabriel: No, no, no. I eat a lot of junk food. I'm just looking out for Liberty.

Parker: She does a pretty good job of looking out for herself.

Gabriel: I think you're right. She also does a mean parallel parking job. [Chuckles]

Craig: Oh. Am I a genius or what?

Carly: I don't deny this feels good.

Craig: Yeah, but you're still gonna slam me with some sort of complaint, aren't you?

Carly: Just can't believe I still let you talk me into all these crazy things.

Craig: Wait a minute. How is taking care of yourself crazy? You know, I'm just looking out for you, so I'm not about to be the bad guy. And apparently, I look out for you a little bit better than certain people, I might add.

Carly: Oh, you be careful, Craig. If we compare all the times you lied to me and hurt me to the times that you've looked out for me, you might not come off looking as great as you think.

Craig: You know what else I think? I think you really appreciate how devoted I am to you.

Carly: Devoted to me?

Craig: Devoted, yeah.

[Carly laughs]

Craig: Who's the guy that urged you back into the business you love so much? Who's the guy who believes in your career so much, he backs it with everything he had, who always puts you first and foremost? Always.

Carly: Hmm. I see you've conveniently forgotten that you dumped me for my sister.

Craig: No. Biggest mistake I ever made.

Carly: You know, we probably shouldn't be having this conversation right now.

Craig: No, it's the perfect time. You're naked on a table. You can't run away.

Carly: [Chuckles] Alan, do you have any earplugs I could borrow? Thanks.

Craig: Pay no mind to her, Alan. She needs to hear this. Carly, do you really think I don't know what an idiot I was to get involved with Rosanna again?

Carly: Well, I'm sure she'd be touched to hear that.

Craig: Well, not because of her. Your sister is a vibrant, exciting, sexy, beautiful woman.

Carly: You're not helping your case here, you know?

Craig: What I'm saying is I was an idiot because I didn't that you are everything that I want. You always have been. And now I wake up every day wondering what things would have been like had I not been so weak. But then I realize that I was weak because you weren't with me.

Carly: Okay. [Carly groans] You should stop right there, okay?

Craig: No, I'm not finished. Carly -- I've been a cad and a philanderer and a ruthless, deceitful man far too many times in my life. But I know I'm a much better man when I'm with you.

Carly: Craig --

Craig: If I just stayed strong and waited for you, we'd be together right now and life wouldn't be so damn complicated. But I didn't, and it is. And for that, I'm an idiot. Well, I hope the massage at least rejuvenated you.

Carly: Oh, it did. I feel wonderful, actually.

Craig: Good.

Carly: And you're right. When you're relaxed, you can think more clearly. And now I know what I have to do.

Craig: Dump Jack and marry me.

Carly: No.

Craig: Okay. We don't have to get married. We can just live together.

Carly: [Laughs] Craig, come on. Stop it. I have to talk to Jack.

Craig: Boy, I must be slipping. I pour my heart out, and you run right back to the guy who doesn't understand you at all.

Carly: Craig, everything you said, it really -- really touched me. It did. But I just can't think about the what ifs. You and I are business partners. Jack and I are together. And regardless of what you say, he does understand me better than anyone.

Craig: That's where you're wrong, Carly.

Carly: Jack and I will work this out. And thanks to you, I am relaxed and clear-headed enough to take the first step. I'll see you later.

Craig: Yeah, sure. No problem. Glad to help.

Liberty: Thank you for being hear with me to celebrate. You are the best friends ever, old and new.

Faith: So, what do you want to do now?

Liberty: Go find my mom and tell her the good news. I -- I can't believe she hasn't called me back yet.

Gabriel: Oh, yeah. You need a ride?

Liberty: Sure.

Parker: You know, I'll come, too, because we are going to the same house.

Gabriel: Faith?

Faith: Um, I'm actually headed in the other direction. Uh, thanks anyway.

Parker: You know, we could actually walk, because you probably have to get back to work, don't you?

Gabriel: No, actually, I'm good.

Waitress: Parker, I need your help. Remember that trick you have for unclogging the sink drain?

Parker: Barely.

Waitress: Sink's backing up again. Could you take a look at it?

Liberty: Parker used to work here.

Gabriel: Oh, Parker the plumber to the rescue.

Parker: Fine.

Liberty: Do you, uh, want us to wait?

Parker: No, you go ahead. I'll catch up with you later.

Faith: Uh, I'm in no rush. I'll stay and keep you company.

Parker: Thanks.

Liberty: So we'll meet up later?

Parker: Sure. I just wanted to say that I'm really happy for you. It was great news today.

Liberty: I couldn't have made it without you. You are the best.

Parker: That's what friends are for.

Liberty: Okay.

Faith: You know something? You deserve better.

Parker: What's that supposed to mean?

Faith: After all you've done for her, I think she should appreciate you a lot more than she does.

Craig: Are you sure this investment is solid? It's gonna provide a quick return? Enough for me to replace what I took out of Parker's trust?

Ellis: If we act fast. In the meantime, you've got to cut back on your expenses.

Craig: Uh, no can do. Had a bit of a breakthrough with Carly today, so I need to keep up the momentum. I'm gonna have to supply her with whatever she needs, which might include a trip to Milan. What I need to do is figure out a way to get that little blackmailer off my back.

Gabriel: Hey, hold up. I know its April, but it is cold out. And good news or not, you should probably stay bundled.

Liberty: Look at you, being all protective.

Gabriel: This is what I do.

Liberty: Good to know.

Gabriel: Okay, you ready?

Liberty: Yeah. You know, my mom can wait a while before she gets the good news. Is it cool if you don't take me home just yet?

Janet: You know, it's funny. I should hate the guy 'cause he hurt me more than anybody else in my life ever did. You know, he threw me out of the house like he was throwing out the garbage.

[Voice breaking]

Janet: So why does it hurt so much to know that he's gone? [Sobs]

Carly: Dusty --

Dusty: Hey, Carly.

Carly: Have you seen Jack? I need to talk to him.

Dusty: Did you hear the news?

Carly: What news?

Dusty: Rocco had another heart attack.

Carly: Oh, no. Is he all right?

Dusty: No, he didn't make it.

Carly: Oh, my God.

Dusty: Janet just found out.

Carly: And where's Jack?

Dusty: Where do you think?

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Liberty: You are amazing. Whoa, Chris, what are you doing?

Vienna: It is a vintage B.R.O.

Henry: Isn't that --

Vienna: Yes, it's Barbara Ryan Originals.

Henry: We've got a problem.

Emily: She is sick, and she belongs in a hospital.

Emma: Hello, Doctor. I have come to take my daughter home.

Paul: Where's Eliza?

Nanny: With Meg and her mother. I thought you knew.
