Molly: Hi.

Holden: Hey.

Molly: How are you?

Holden: I'm a little busy.

Molly: Oh. Well, I have a long break from work. I don't have to be back for hours. You weren't expecting me to come by, probably.

Holden: You know what, it just doesn't matter.

Molly: Well, I mean, I was thinking since you're here and I'm here, we could go on a hike, maybe pack a picnic, find a secluded spot to --

Holden: Molly, listen, I -- I got a lot of work to do, okay?

Molly: Yeah, but that's not why you don't want to go with me, is it? It's because you're still mad about what I did with Silas.

Luke: What -- what happened? Is Noah okay? Did he -- did he wake up?

Reid: Don't have a coronary. I don't do cardiology.

Luke: Oh. Really? 'Cause I thought you were, like, über-doctor, like know all, see all, cure all.

Reid: Just on alternate Wednesdays. They're taking Noah down to radiology.

Luke: Really? What's wrong?

Reid: Well, this might be nothing, but we think he's showing signs of coming around.

Luke: Really? He's getting better? Are you sure?

Reid: Well, we're not sure about anything yet.

Luke: But you said there were signs. Like what, did he open his eyes, can he talk? Are you sure there's no brain damage?

Reid: We don't know anything, Luke. That's why we're doing the tests.

Luke: Yeah, but if there is brain damage, then what are you gonna do next?

Reid: Try to relax, okay? We need to take this one step at a time. I'll come back when the tests are done.

Lily: Is something going on between you two?

Emily: Oh, God. Eliza? Eliza, where are you? Oh, God. Okay. Oh.

Carmody: You stay away from me, lady.

Emily: What did you do with my baby?

Carmody: What are you talking about?

Emily: What did you do with my baby?

Carmody: What?

Emily: Was this all part of your plan? You grab me -- you grab me, and then you got one of your friends to take my baby?

Carmody: Get away from me!

Emily: What did you do with her?

Carmody: Are you out of your mind?

Emily: Oh, my God, I know you did something with her. Tell me where she is!

Carmody: I don't know nothing about a baby, all right? Are you trying to set me up, bring the feds down on me? [Voice breaking]

Emily: Oh, God, Eliza, where are you? Where is she? Oh. Oh, God. Oh! Excuse me. Stop. Did you -- did you see someone take a baby in this car?

Passerby: No, no.

Emily: No, you didn't! You had to have seen something.

Passerby: I don't know anything about that.

Emily: Please don't -- don't just walk away from me! Help me, help me! Somebody took my baby! Oh, God. Eliza! [Sobbing] Eliza, where are you?

Paul: You are Eliza's mother. That is never gonna change.

Meg: It already has. I've lost so much time in the hospital, and now that I'm back --

Paul: So going back to work, you're gonna spend even less time with Eliza.

Meg: I need to act like a normal mom, and then maybe --

Paul: And then what? Then you'll take Eliza away from me?

Meg: I want her to have both of us, Paul.

Paul: She does. That's what she has now. You can see Eliza whenever you want.

Meg: No, whenever you and Emily want.

Paul: That's not what I'm saying.

Meg: Shared custody would be better. Look, I need to get my job back so I can look like I'm completely well to the judge.

Paul: Going back to nursing full-time, it's very stressful, right?

Meg: You think I can't handle it?

Paul: No, no, no, no. Come on. I think you're a great nurse. I just -- I think you should ease into it. Eliza needs her mom.

Meg: I need her, too.

[Cell phone ringing]

Paul: Hey.

[Voice breaking]

Emily: Paul -- Paul, you have to come right away.

Paul: Why? What's wrong?

Emily: It's Eliza. She's gone. Oh, God.

Emily: Thank God. Thank God you're here. Oh, God, Paul.

Paul: What the hell is going on? What happened here?

Emily: I just left her in the car. I left her in the car.

Paul: You left her in the car?

Emily: Five seconds! No, no, I didn't -- I just -- I ran out to peek in on a window.

Meg: You went window shopping here?

Emily: No, no! I ran after a -- it was a robber, okay? It was a story I'd done on the guy. And then he came behind me with a gun.

Paul: You were chasing a robber, and you brought my daughter along for the ride? What the hell is the matter with you?

Emily: She was never in any danger, I swear to you --

Meg: She's gone!

Emily: I know she's gone! I know! My God, I know she's gone. Oh, God. Maybe she got out of her car seat. Maybe she got out and got out of the car. Someone must have seen her.

Meg: Well, maybe somebody took her!

Paul: I'm gonna go find her, okay? You two --

Emily: Hurry. Just go.

Paul: Just stay here, all right?

Meg: How could you do this? How could you do this? She's a baby! You don't leave her alone in a car! How could you be so stupid and careless?

Emily: Are you kidding me? Are you calling me irresponsible? You took her out in the dead of night with half your wires uncrossed! If she could survive you, I think she can survive this!

Meg: Oh, yeah, she can't survive you. Is this how you raised your son? Is this why Tom never lets Daniel live with you?

Emily: God, I love my son.

Meg: Because you can't stop thinking about yourself!

Emily: And I love Eliza. And the only reason this happened is because someone held me at gunpoint. Did you find her? Did anybody see anything?

Paul: I called the police.

Meg: Oh, my God.

Emily: Are they gonna come here?

Paul: No, no, we have to go down to the station.

Emily: Wait, wait. No, no, but they should come here and -- and talk to people or get fingerprints or something.

Paul: Emily, let's go. Let's go.

Emily: Maybe -- oh, God.

Luke: Thanks, Mom.

Lily: So, they haven't brought Noah back yet? We can talk about what just happened?

Luke: About Reid?

Lily: Oh, it's "Reid" now?

Luke: Mom --

Lily: Luke, what is going on?

Luke: He told me that he has feelings for me.

Lily: What? I can't believe it. You're worrying about Noah, and for his doctor to take advantage of that --

Luke: He's not taking advantage of anything, Mom. He's been completely honest this whole time.

Lily: So you're encouraging him? What about Noah?

Luke: Mom, we broke up. You know that. He said he needed his space. He couldn't have that with me there, so we ended things.

Lily: You said that Dr. Oliver has feelings for you. What about you? Do you have feelings for him?

Luke: Yeah. But I'm not really sure what they are right now. Reid's sure, though. What?

Lily: I just -- I can't imagine you with anyone other than Noah.

Luke: Yeah. I used to think that, too.

Lily: He doesn't seem like a very nice man.

Luke: Dr. Oliver? He's not. He's rude, and he's cold. He's rude.

Lily: And you find that attractive?

Luke: No, it's just -- he's in your face, like -- he's like, "Okay, here I am, and this is what I'm feeling. Deal with that." And to have a guy like that, a guy who says exactly what he feels at all times -- to have somebody like that say that he likes you, I mean, it feels nice for a change. Why are you so sad?

Lily: Because I wanted things to work out with you and Noah, okay? I wanted you to have that kind of love that lasts forever.

Luke: Yeah, but people thought that you and Dad had that kind of love.

Lily: Yeah. So did we.

Luke: But how does that even work? Is it possible?

Lily: Well, it takes two people that want it to work, that believe it will work and make it work.

Luke: Yeah, well, who stopped believing, you or Dad?

Lily: We both took turns.

Luke: Whose turn was it this time?

Lily: Do you want forever with Reid Oliver?

Luke: I want Noah to wake up.

Lily: So do I. And I want you to be happy, Baby.

Luke: Happy and Noah -- they used to mean the same thing.

Molly: Hey. I have some lemonade for you. Unless you're still too mad at me to drink it.

Holden: I'm not mad.

Molly: You just haven't forgiven me.

Holden: Molly, you tried to manipulate me.

Molly: I know what I did was wrong.

Holden: You know, if that wasn't enough, you tried to do it with a guy who could really hurt you.

Molly: He wouldn't hurt me.

Holden: He already tried to kill you once, and now you're giving him a second chance? That's just -- I thought we had something real going on here.

Molly: Oh, my God. We do.

Holden: Well, then, why would you go to Silas?

Molly: You're really gonna make me say this?

Holden: Yeah.

Molly: Because I was feeling pretty desperate for your attention. I figured out a way to get it. I'm stupid, okay? I know. I'm sorry.

Holden: Me, too.

Molly: What for?

Holden: My focus -- it's been -- elsewhere.

Molly: Yeah. I kind of noticed that.

Holden: I've been worried about my family. And Lily -- she needed my help.

Molly: I know.

Holden: But I want to be with you.

Molly: You do?

Holden: Yes. Let's just get one thing straight, all right?

Molly: Later, okay?

Holden: No, now, now.

Molly: Make it fast.

Holden: I want this to work out, but we need to start trusting each other. No more games.

Molly: Okay. No games, I promise. Now do I get my kiss?

Holden: I want you to just make me one promise, okay?

Molly: What is it?

Holden: I'm gonna do everything I can to let you know that I care about you so that you don't do any more of those little tricks. Okay?

Molly: Thank you. Now?

Holden: Now.

Molly: Now.

[Holden laughs]

Luke: I'm gonna go wait in Noah's room. You can come with if you'd like.

Lily: You go ahead. It sounds like you've got some thinking to do.

Luke: Mm. Thanks, Mom.

Lily: I'll check in on Noah later. I'm praying for good results.

Luke: Well, I'll tell him you said that. I don't know if he can hear me, but I keep talking to him like he can.

Lily: You do that. I'll talk to you soon.

[Cell phone ringing]

Holden: I should get that.

Molly: You should get that.

Holden: It's Lily.

Molly: Oh, yeah.

Holden: [Sighs] Lily.

Lily: Hey. I'm sorry to bother you. Is this an okay time?

Holden: What do you need?

Lily: I'm on my way home, and it just dawned on me that I don't know what might be waiting for me there now that Craig’s out of jail.

Holden: All right, I'll tell you what. I'll meet you over there, okay?

Lily: Are you sure you can? I mean, if you can't, don't worry about it.

Holden: No, no, I'll see you there.

Molly: Yeah, I know. You gotta go. If you gotta go, you gotta go.

Holden: Gotta go. But remember, we're building trust.

Molly: Trust. Got it.

[Holden sighs]

Molly: Silas, we need to talk.

Paul: Hi, my name is Paul Ryan. I called before. I spoke with somebody. My daughter is missing. My wife left her alone in a car, and now she's disappeared.

Cop: Did you do that?

Meg: No, no. I'm the baby's mother, not his wife. I would never do anything to endanger my child.

Paul: My wife was parked on Main and Crescent. Maybe we go down there now, we look for her.

Cop: No, let's talk about this in the interrogation room.

Paul: I don't think there's time for us to talk about anything. I think we go down there now in the squad car, and we look for her.

Cop: Let's talk in here.

[Emily gasps]

Molly: Why wouldn't you meet me at my office?

Silas: This is the only place we can have privacy.

Molly: I don't need to be alone with you, Silas.

Silas: I thought I was yours exclusively.

Molly: Oh, God, don't start.

Silas: I'm talking about my story. Every time I leave the hotel, the paparazzi follow. You don't want them stealing your journalistic thunder, do you?

Molly: That's actually one of the things I came to talk to you about.

Silas: Hold on. I thought I'd heard your angry farm boy clopping toward the door.

Molly: No, Holden won't be coming by this time.

Silas: Excellent. Let me pour you a drink.

Molly: No. No, no thanks, Silas. Will you please just listen to me for a second?

Silas: Anywhere, anytime.

Molly: I want to come clean with you. I never really wanted to do the interview.

Silas: Then what do you want?

Molly: And I also don't want anything personal with you, not anymore. Everything was an act for Holden to make him jealous. It was infantile and stupid, and I'm sorry if I misled you.

Silas: Thank you for the apology.

Molly: You're welcome. Good-bye.

Silas: I don't believe a word you've said.

Lily: Hello?

Holden: You can come in. It's all clear.

Lily: Holden, I really appreciate this.

Holden: Not a problem. You just never know with Craig. Did he try to call you?

Lily: No, but I'm sure he's still furious with me for not telling him about his son.

Holden: If Gabriel’s mother didn't want Craig to know, it wasn't your secret to tell. How is Gabriel?

Lily: Still in serious condition. Last I heard, his lung collapsed, and they had to take him into surgery.

Holden: I'm sorry.

Lily: [Sighs] Holden, I know it must seem like I'm overreacting, asking you to come over here and check out the place for us.

Holden: You know what? You were right to be worried. Craig -- he's all about revenge, and you just never know how he's gonna get it. Look what he did to your mother.

Lily: Thank you for taking this so seriously and for being here for me.

Holden: I told you that I'm gonna make sure that you and the kids are safe. And I'm gonna do that.

Lily: I just hope you being here to protect me and the kids doesn't interfere with your own life.

Holden: It's not going to. But it's pretty clear that you need help right now. Just not from me.

Luke: So, how did the test go? Is there any change? Is Noah gonna be all right?

Reid: One step at a time. First do the tests, then analyze the tests. So if you'll back off, I will go do that now.

Luke: Look, I'm sorry. I don't mean to walk all over you. I just want Noah to wake up.

Reid: Me, too.

Luke: Why, so you can declare your surgery an official success?

Reid: Among other things.

Luke: Noah -- Noah, do you hear me? They say that you might be making some headway, so if that's true, if you can hear me, just -- just open your eyes, Noah. Please wake up. Please. Noah, it's me. Can you see me?

Emma: Apparently, a policeman was patrolling by Emily's car. The baby was inside alone. She was crying, by the way. Where were you?

Paul: You know what? Why don't we get into this later? Is Eliza okay? Hi.

Emma: She's fine.

Meg: Hey, Sweetheart. Come here. Come here, Sweetie. Oh, oh, Baby. Oh. How did they know where to find you?

Emma: Fortunately, Margo was here when they brought her in, and she recognized her, and she gave me a call.

Emily: I'm glad she's safe.

Cop: Are you the wife?

Emily: Yes, I am.

Cop: All right, we're gonna let you off with a warning this time, but don't let it happen again.

Emily: It won't, I promise. Thank you. Thank you very much. Oh, God. Thank God that's over. Oh, Eliza, Honey, I'm so --

Emma: What do you think you're doing? Don't you go anywhere near my granddaughter. I cannot believe the nerve of you two.

Paul: Okay, you -- we can't do this right now.

Emma: Waltzing in here like you've done nothing wrong. I mean, pretending to be the model family just because you have a lot of money and a huge house. I mean, you think that makes you perfect parents?

Emily: What are you talking about? We never claimed to be perfect.

Emma: No, no, just better -- better than my daughter.

Emily: Your daughter just was released from a psychiatric hospital.

Paul: Okay, you know what? Why don't we all just calm down?

Emma: Now, look, no matter what my daughter has done, the two of you have done much worse. And this child, you have nothing to offer her except more of the same carelessness.

Meg: Mom, Paul had nothing to do with this.

Emily: You're right. He didn’t. Obviously, this whole thing was my fault. But how do I know you didn't set this whole thing up?

[Emma scoffs]

Meg: I didn't! I would never put Eliza at risk like that.

Paul: Meg had nothing to do with it. She couldn't have had anything to do with it. She was with me the whole time.

Emily: What? I thought you had a business meeting or something.

Paul: Well, my plans changed. Meg needed my help.

Emily: Oh. Of course she did. Of course she did, because she needed you to supply the perfect alibi so she could arrange to have the baby snatched from me.

Meg: That's ridiculous!

Emma: You know, you're sounding a little crazy, my dear. You were the one who left the baby in the car.

Emily: Because there was a man behind me with a gun, Emma.

Meg: You got out of the car and left her, Emily. Nobody told you to do that.

Emily: Really? Really? That's funny, because I think the two of you could have plotted this whole thing.

Meg: You think my mother hired a gunman to threaten you?

Emily: In a word, yes.

Paul: Okay, you know what? Eliza does not need to hear any more of this. I am taking her home now. Emma, I have custody. We are in a police station. Don't you think we've all had enough trouble with the law for one day?

Meg: Okay, Sweetie.

Paul: Hey.

Emily: Hi.

Meg: She left my baby alone in a car!

Emma: Never, never again, Sweetheart. Never again. Come on. We have some calls to make.

Luke: Noah, are you okay? Can you see me? If you can hear what I'm saying, just say something or nod your head.

Noah: I see -- I see your eyes. You're the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life.

Luke: You're you. You're still you.

Noah: Who else would I be?

Lily: So what are we gonna do?

Holden: What we're gonna do is hire a private security firm. I've done that. Here's the number. This way, you can relax, and I don't need to be here so much.

Lily: When did you think of that?

Holden: Today, after we talked.

Lily: But you said you weren't busy and that it wouldn't be a problem.

Holden: Lily, I think it's gonna be best to have a security team here protecting you guys around the clock.

Lily: I don't think the kids are gonna be happy having security guards around all the time.

Holden: I think that they'll get used to it. Just -- we can't make assumptions about what Craig might do next. We need it.

Lily: No, we can’t.

Holden: What? What is it? You seem upset about something.

Lily: I just feel like I've inconvenienced you.

Holden: I haven’t.

Lily: I should have thought of hiring a security team on my own. I just --

Holden: What?

Lily: Nothing. What do you think Craig’s next move will be?

Holden: Well, I don't think he's gonna come after you like he did with your mother, but I think he's gonna definitely want revenge for you not telling him about Gabriel. So we need to just stay alert, and we need to be prepared.

Lily: "We"? You're not gonna be around.

Holden: No, I'm still gonna be involved. The security team will be here protecting you and the kids, and I'll be trying to figure out what Craig’s next move is.

Lily: That's a great idea. We can do it together.

Molly: Oh, my God, you're delusional!

Silas: What am I misinterpreting here, Molly? You're here in my room. You've made it clear that your farm boy won't be joining us.

Molly: Yeah, because I'm not trying to make Holden jealous anymore.

Silas: Because you want me.

Molly: No. No, I don’t. Any feeling or affection I had toward you pretty much faded away when you insulted me and lied to me. Oh, and let's not forget how you tried to kill me so I wouldn't wreck your career.

Silas: Molly, you know I would have never gone through with that. I was up against the wall. I reacted. There is nothing to stop us from being together now all the time, in the open.

Molly: Oh, my God. Is that what you think I want? Because it's not. Being with you, Silas, is the last thing on my mind.

Silas: Is that a fact? Let's see.

Reid: You're awake.

Luke: He can see.

Noah: Sort of.

Reid: Well, if you'll excuse us, Mr. Snyder, I need to examine my patient.

Luke: Yeah, of course. I'll be back later, Noah.

Noah: See you then.

Reid: What's your name?

Noah: Did you forget?

Reid: I'm checking to see how much you've forgotten. Follow the light. You've been unconscious for a long time. Name?

Noah: Noah Mayer.

Reid: Year?

Noah: Star date 2010. Still sounds funny to say. And you are Dr. Reid Oliver. But you're gonna have to come closer so I can see the -- the comb-over, buck teeth, and, beer belly you were talking about before.

Reid: You remember that? You were pretty high on anesthesia. So, what do you see?

Noah: Well, I see you. Just, you're really blurry. This is way better than it was before, but, I don't want to sound greedy, but is this as good as it's gonna get?

Reid: No. Your vision will continue to improve, but it's gonna take some time. You need to be patient.

Noah: Thank you.

Reid: Just doing my job.

Noah: I never thought I was gonna be able to see again. You and Luke -- Luke made this happen.

Reid: Oh, I think I had a little more to do with it.

Noah: No, but he brought you here. This whole time, I've been -- I've been pushing him away. I'm gonna make it up to him.

Reid: Okay, well, great. I'm interested in your vision, so, you know, you can save your true confessions for somebody who, I don't know, cares.

Noah: Some things never change. Your bedside manners still stinks.

Reid: That's a relief.

Luke: How is he?

Reid: All yours.

Luke: What did he say? Are you on the road to recovery?

Noah: I'm great. I can see shapes and colors and details, too, you know, if they're close enough. But Dr. Oliver says that will improve, too.

Luke: So, Noah Mayer, you just had a successful surgery, and you're getting your sight back. What do you want to do now?

Noah: Everything.

Luke: Be more specific.

Noah: I want to go outside.

Luke: Noah, you just got out of surgery. I don't know if that's a good idea.

Noah: I haven't been able to see in months. Come on, help me out.

Luke: Well -- let me ask Dr. Oliver if it's okay.

Noah: Dr. Oliver's gonna say no. He says no to everything.

Luke: Well, maybe there is a reason for that. I can't just haul you out of here.

Noah: Who cares what the doctors say? You asked me what it was I wanted. This is it, Luke.

Luke: I'll go get you a wheelchair.

Lily: I don't want the kids growing up surrounded by security guards, and I don't want to spend the rest of my life looking over my shoulder. And you're never gonna be able to anticipate Craig.

Holden: Why not?

Lily: The guy probably set his own business on fire. He sat around and watched me get addicted to diet pills. He stole my mother's company. Holden, you're nothing like Craig. You could never be like him.

Holden: Oh, oh, and you can?

Lily: I'm not gonna wait for him to mount a subversive attack on the kids or me or you.

Holden: Me? It's you that he wants to come after. He doesn't want anything to do with me.

Lily: Why not?

Holden: Lily, we're divorced. He knows how you feel -- that we're not -- we're not close anymore.

Lily: What if he's acquitted of these arson charges? And don't tell me that he won't be. I mean, Craig is a master of getting out of jail. Then the kids and I will be the ones imprisoned or guarded, maybe for years.

Holden: What are you suggesting?

Lily: Look, I think that we should just work together, Holden, to figure out a way to get through to Craig or to stop him.

Holden: Okay, okay, fine. We can do that.

Lily: Thank you.

Holden: If you think of anything that might help, just call me or e-mail me. But I need to be very clear about something. I cannot spend a lot of time here. I can't do that.

Lily: Because of Molly?

Holden: Partly, yes.

Lily: What's the other part?

Holden: [Sighs] Who we were, what we had. Spending so much time together --

Lily: Brings it all back, how much we meant to each other, how we thought it was gonna last.

Holden: Yeah. And we can't go back. We can’t.

Silas: Why won't you let me kiss you?

Molly: Because I'm with somebody else now, somebody who treats me with respect, somebody who I love.

Silas: You remember that night in Vegas?

Molly: Oh, God. Shut up, Silas.

Silas: That little, red thing you almost wore when you came to my door?

Molly: That was a long time ago.

Silas: That woman, that seductress, is who you are. That woman could never be satisfied being a farmer's wife, no matter how much he respects you.

Molly: You know, I'm not that woman anymore!

Silas: You love the fast life, the excitement. We both do. We both need that adrenaline rush.

Molly: Stop with the assumptions, okay? You don't know a damn thing about me or my life. Whatever we had together, whatever you want to call that, it's done, over, gone.

Silas: Let me get that for you. And Molly, the next time he's respecting you, you think of me.

Emily: I'm sure she's exhausted. Long -- long afternoon. Can you do me a favor and pour me one of those? I could sure use one. Can't you look at me? Okay. Can I have a word or two with the look?

Paul: No, not now.

Emily: No, no, don't do -- don't do this. Do not do this. You're not gonna sit and stew. It's unhealthy.

Paul: I'm not stewing. I'm gonna go check on Eliza.

Emily: No, no. Eliza is just fine. But if the two -- if we do not talk about this, we are gonna be in big trouble, okay? So whatever -- whatever it is you're thinking, just say it.

Paul: She's my daughter.

Emily: And she's like a daughter to me, too. Going after that -- going after that robber, it was a spur-of-the-moment decision, and I don't know what happened to me. My reporter instincts kicked in, and I didn't think. I just took off. And I am sorry.

Paul: You have an entire staff.

Emily: I know that.

Paul: I have one daughter.

Emily: I know that. But see, I knew what the guy looked like. I had done all the research. I knew exactly where he was gonna go.

Paul: Do you think I care about that? Do you think I give a damn about any of that?

Emily: No.

Paul: You should have called me.

Emily: I tried to call you. I tried to call you to come pick up your daughter, but you didn't pick up your phone.

Paul: Then you should have called Meg.

Emily: Well, I didn't think of that.

Paul: Why not? Because she's crazy? I'll tell you something! Meg has never taken my child with her while she was chasing after some gun-toting lunatic! She's never left her alone in a car! And she's certainly never lost her! And you call Meg crazy?

Emily: Yes.

Paul: And I'm calling you a hypocrite.

Emily: You are not being fair. Meg has done much worse.

Paul: Worse than shooting me?

Emily: Oh, that's just great. That's just so big of you. How -- why do you always defend her and bend over backwards for your -- I am your wife!

Paul: Yeah, and Eliza's my daughter, and she's barely 2 years old. And I trusted you. I completely trusted you.

Emily: I made a mistake.

Paul: Yeah, you made a big mistake.

Emily: What about you, hmm? What about what you did in New York? Did you not leave Eliza in the car unprotected in the freezing cold?

Paul: You, this is -- this is great. You completely screw up, so -- so what, now you're gonna try and hurt me?

Emily: No, I'm not trying to hurt you. I'm just trying to explain to you that we all make mistakes.

Paul: Yeah, but not now. Not now. Eliza is everything to me, and I could lose her now because of what you did today.

Emily: No, that's not gonna happen.

Paul: We are in the middle of a custody battle, okay? Emma Snyder is gunning -- gunning for me with everything that she has. And if she wins, I lose Eliza. I could never see her again. Do you understand that?

Emily: That's not gonna happen.

Paul: And I thought that we had turned a corner. You know, I thought that we were -- we were being good parents. And you completely jeopardized that.

Emily: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I don't know how many times to tell you, I don't -- I wasn't thinking. But when I turned around and I saw Eliza was not in that car, I was terrified. Don't you realize how much I love her? She's like a little girl to me. I am sorry, okay? Just forgive me. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Where are you going?

Paul: I heard Eliza.

Emily: Eliza is sleeping.

Paul: No, I heard her.

Emily: Okay, fine. Fine. We will go get her. We will go get her together.

Paul: I'm gonna go get her, and I'm -- I'm gonna -- I'm gonna take her out for some ice cream.

Emily: Okay. Let's do that. She'll love it. We'll take her to Al's. Let me grab my coat, and we'll take her to Al's together.

Paul: No, Emily, you're not invited.

Emma: Yes. The patrolling officer did file a police report. [Sighs] They gave Emily a warning. Yeah, I agree, I agree. Now, I think this will really be to Meg's advantage in court. Yeah. Okay, let's make the most of this. All right. Yeah, thank you.

Meg: So does the lawyer think this one incident will make a difference?

Emma: This one incident, with Emily's past history -- oh, Sweetheart, it really adds up. I think your baby will be home soon. Home to stay.

Salesgirl: Lovely choice. Will you be taking it with you?

Silas: I want it delivered immediately, please.

Salesgirl: She must be a very special woman.

Silas: You bet she is.

Holden: Surprise!

Molly: What are you doing here? I thought you'd be spending the whole day with Lily.

Holden: I kept it short. I'm not gonna be spending so much time over there, except to see my kids.

Molly: Why's that?

Holden: Keeping promises, making changes, building trust.

Molly: If you're gonna be worried about Lily being in danger all the time, Holden, you're going to be just --

Holden: It's already taken care of. I hired a private security firm.

Molly: So Lily can call them and not you?

Holden: Which means I'll be more available to you.

Molly: Are you sure that's what you want? I know how responsible you feel for your family.

Holden: And I'm gonna own up to those responsibilities. But I owe you.

Molly: Well -- I've been keeping promises, making changes, and building trust, too.

Holden: Really? How?

Molly: I let Silas know that I'm not now nor will I ever be interested in him.

Holden: Good. I'm proud of you. And happy for me.

Molly: [Laughs] Oh.

P.A.: Molly, sorry to interrupt.

Molly: It's fine. What do you need?

P.A.: This package just came for you. It's marked "Urgent."

Molly: Oh, thanks. It's probably about a story.

Holden: Go ahead. Open it up.

Molly: Do you mind?

Holden: No, not at all.

Molly: It's got me so curious. [Clears throat]

Holden: What is it?

Molly: Something that I had forgotten about for a show that I'm not doing anymore. It's not important. You are.

Holden: So are you. Don't you ever forget how much you mean to me.

[Lily sighs, sighs]

Doctor: Dr. Oliver, congratulations.

Reid: On?

Doctor: Everybody in the hospital's talking about your miracle case. You must feel good about finally proving yourself to be the brilliant genius you always insisted you were.

Reid: I haven't given it much thought. That case is done. I'm moving on to the next one.

Luke: How's this?

Noah: It feels so good.

Luke: How are your eyes? Do they hurt?

Noah: It's still blurry, but I can make out which blob is the sky and which blobs are the buildings. I can see colors.

Luke: That's great.

Noah: I know how hard I've been on you. I'm so sorry, Luke.

Luke: Look, Noah, don't apologize. The accident was my fault. If I hadn't distracted you that day --

Noah: I can see again, Luke, because of you, because you stuck with me through all this.

Luke: Whether you wanted me to or not.

Noah: I know it hurt you when I asked you to back off, but you did it anyway. And when I needed you to be there for me through the surgery, you were. A lot of people talk about love, but you do it. And I am so grateful to you, Luke.

Luke: Look, Noah, you don't have to apologize because you didn't want to be with me. It happens.

Noah: That had nothing to do with you or the way I feel about you. I was so afraid that this moment would never come again. Look, I know we've got a lot to work through, but I hope our relationship is -- is strong enough to survive this.

Luke: Noah -- that's not important right now. You have to focus on your health, not on our relationship.

Noah: Okay. I know I may not be able to see the expression on your face, but I can feel it. Something's changed. What is it?

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Chris: You're not gonna get over Brad's death by taking over my life.

Barbara: What are you doing here?

Henry: I'm waiting for you.

Vienna: I'm not giving up on you, Henry.

Casey: Okay.
