Katie: Good morning, Vivian.

Vivian: Are you sure about that?

Katie: Working on it.

[Vivian laughs]

Katie: We are here for Jacob's checkup with Dr. Blanchard.

[Jacob laughs]

Vivian: Oh! Oh, I guess you didn't get my message. Dr. Blanchard was called into an emergency.

Katie: Oh, no. He was sleeping, and I forgot to turn back on my ringer. Well, when can we come back?

Vivian: Oh, you won't have to. There's another pediatrician covering today's appointments.

Katie: Uh, you know, actually, Jacob's just so used to Dr. Blanchard, I think we should probably just come back.

Chris: Well, there's no need for that. Jacob and I are old buddies. Right, little man? We connect, like me and your mama. [Laughing] Yeah.

Reid: Am I the first one here?

Bob: Hey. You're early for a change.

Reid: I was early to the last one.

Bob: Listen, I'm glad we have a few minutes before the rest of them get here. I'm really sorry that I had to make you choose between Memorial and Luke. We're at a crossroads, and what's best for the hospital comes first, even if that involves sacrifice.

Reid: Whatever you say, Bobbo. Who else is coming to this meeting?

Bob: Mona Cross from Invicta.

Reid: Right. The corporation that's gonna swallow us whole.

Bob: I didn't realize that you weren't in favor of it.

Reid: You never asked. You just paraded me out in front of the woman like I was best in show. Look, if you want to sell your hospital, you're gonna sell it. Everybody knows the independent hospital's on its way out. But you gave me a chance to set up my department my way. I'm grateful. I'm not leaving anytime soon. So let's, uh -- let's move on. Who else did you bring me here to impress?

Bob: No one. Luke will be joining us. You okay with that?

Reid: Like you said the other day, there's medicine, and then there's everything else.

Noah: Hey.

Luke: Hi. You got your job back.

Noah: Yeah. I'm a talented barista.

Luke: You should be making films.

Noah: Yeah, well, maybe with my next million-dollar paycheck. Um, so yeah, I just came over to tell you that, uh, we have a special. It's -- it's two for one lattes before 11:00.

Luke: Um, thanks. I -- I won't be needing two.

Noah: Oh. It's good all week.

Luke: Well, I don't think that special's gonna apply to me for a long time.

Noah: How are things between you and Dr. Oliver?

Luke: They're not.

Lily: Well, did the D.A.'s office give you any indication if the rest of the charges against Craig would be dropped? No, no, he can stay here as long as the judge allows it. I mean, that's the whole point of it. I'm hoping that if Gabriel and Craig live under the same roof, they'll learn to deal with each other. Tom, I've got to go. Will you keep me posted? Thanks.

Holden: Don't hang up on my account.

Lily: We were finished. What are you doing here? I thought you had a wedding to plan.

Holden: Faith told me that you have a new house guest.

Lily: Sort of. Craig is staying here as a condition of his bail.

Holden: What about Gabriel?

Lily: What about him?

Holden: Is he still here?

Lily: Yes. Holden, he has nowhere else to go.

Holden: Lily, I don't want to hear it. I know you feel guilty about keeping Craig's son from him, but that's not my problem.

Lily: So what's yours?

Holden: Honestly, I'm worried about my kids and how once again you did not think things through before you put them at risk.

Lily: So now Natalie and Ethan are your children? I am their mother, and you know damn well I would never put them in danger.

Holden: Oh, really? Because --

Lily: Don't you dare throw Damian in my face or I swear I will lose it. Damian is gone, and this situation with Craig is nothing like that.

Holden: Okay, what about Gabriel?

Lily: What about him?

Holden: What if he lashes out at Craig and you and the kids get caught in the cross fire?

Lily: That whole thing is done. Gabriel's not a threat to anyone. And Craig is just staying here until all of his charges have been cleared.

Holden: If he's cleared.

Lily: Well, if he's not, he'll be moving to Statesville. So either way, it won't be forever.

Holden: Lily, I -- I know that you're trying to make up for a past mistake. I get that. But there's got to be another way. Faith is freaking out.

Lily: About what?

Holden: She's afraid of Gabriel. She doesn't want to run into him.

Lily: Faith isn't afraid of Gabriel.

Holden: That's not the feeling I get from her. She doesn't want to be living in the same house as a stranger.

Lily: Let me get this straight. It's not okay for Faith to be around Gabriel or Craig, but it's perfectly fine for her to be living with a murderer?

Molly: [Cries, screams] Oh, God.

Chris: You're big and you're strong and you're healthy. That doesn't happen by accident, right? What's that? What did you say? Your son says he worships you.

Katie: Oh, really?

Chris: Yeah, yeah. Either that, or he said he wants a puppy. I don't know. They're so tough to understand these days.

[Baby fusses]

[Katie laughs]

Chris: Oh, it was the puppy? Is that what it is? Okay, okay.

Katie: You're right. We do have a connection. Or a shared secret, that is. Thank you for letting me change Vienna's medical records.

Chris: I don't think you should be thanking me for that now. [Clears throat]

Katie: Well, it was a big risk, you looking the other way. If your father found out, he would fire you. You might lose your license.

Chris: Yeah, let's not talk about it, okay?

Katie: I'm just saying it was for a good cause.

Chris: Well, like I said, let's not talk about it.

Katie: But you don't know Henry and Vienna like I do. They are my best friends, and they are meant to be together. So for them not to spend a happy life, long life together would be a tragedy.

Chris: You're right. When two people are meant for each other, it's criminal that anything stand in their way.

Katie: I just hope you realize that I'm not doing this to make up for losing Brad.

Chris: Well, somehow I don't think he would be on board with it.

Katie: Look, I just -- I want my friends to be happy, and I appreciate your help, and I know Henry and Vienna will someday, too, whether they know it or not.

Chris: Well, I didn't do this for them. I did it for you.

Noah: So, what's going on? Did you and Dr. Oliver break up or something?

Luke: I don't want to talk about it, Noah.

Noah: Okay. That's -- that's fine.

Luke: Reid's a jerk.

Noah: What, you didn't know that before?

Luke: No, I did, but I thought, you know, it might be an act or something. But it's not. He's a jerk. And what's worse, he's a user.

Noah: What do you mean?

Luke: I mean that now that he has his fancy new hospital wing, he doesn't need me. I'm just a distraction with money. You know, and God forbid he feels anything for me when he can go back to being the -- the tortured genius he always was.

Noah: You know, you can spare me the gory details.

Luke: You asked.

Noah: Well, I wish I hadn't.

Luke: Well, yeah. Look, I -- I'm sorry. I should not be dumping all of my personal baggage on you.

Noah: It's fine. You moved on. That's what people who split up are supposed to do, right?

Luke: Yeah. But it's humiliating. And if I were you, I'd probably say that I deserved it.

Noah: I'm not you.

Luke: Aren't you glad?

Noah: Luke -- for what it's worth, um -- I am sorry.

Luke: Thank you.

Bob: Dr. Oliver has, uh, been able to outfit the neurological suite with the best of everything. In fact, through some contacts of his, we managed to get some equipment that's not even on the market yet.

Reid: Yeah. It was -- it was easy. We get the prototype. The company gets all the P.R.

Bob: Yeah, but you had to know the outstanding expert involved in that field.

Reid: We went to medical school together. I couldn't help but know them.

Bob: You're too humble, Doctor. Well, as you can see, he has taken charge of the neurological wing with total commitment.

Mona: Invicta's all about commitment -- [Chuckles] -- To people and profit.

Reid: Good luck with that.

Mona: They're not mutually exclusive, you know? We like to think of ourselves as creating a symbiotic relationship between you, the artist, and us, the agents. If both parties do their job, then the patients are happy and the profits are inevitable.

Reid: I didn't become a surgeon for the money. The word "Profit" has never entered my thinking or my medicine.

Bob: Of course not. Who said it did?

Luke: I did.

Bob: You remember Luke Snyder.

Mona: Of course. Nice to see you, Luke.

Bob: Well, it seems that these two young men are debating the financial accountability in medicine.

Luke: Well, Dr. Oliver's only accountable to Dr. Oliver. He's made that abundantly clear.

Reid: It works for me. That's how I save lives. What did you expect?

Luke: Something better. I don't know why. People don't change.

Mona: Is this about the hospital?

[Pager beeps]

Bob: Oh. I'm sorry. Excuse me. There's multiple casualties coming into the E.R. I have to go.

Reid: I'll come with you.

Bob: No, that's okay. The on-call team can take care of it.

Reid: Are you serious?

Bob: Yes, I'm serious. And if I need you, I'll have you paged. Why don't you discuss with Mona your respective missions in this project? He, of course, would like to have the best neurological facility in the country. And Luke --

[Pager beeps]

Bob: I'm sorry. I've got to go.

Mona: We'll speak later, Bob.

Bob: Right.

Mona: Uh, so, Luke, moving forward, how do you see your role in all of this?

Luke: Well, I have the same goals as Dr. Oliver.

Mona: Well, excellent.

Luke: But where we differ is in approach. Reid is clinical. Mine is personal -- very personal.

Katie: You've been a good friend to me at a time when I really needed it, and I just want you to know how much I appreciate that.

Chris: I do.

Katie: And Jacob adores you. He's usually nervous around new people.

Chris: Well, I'm hardly new.

Katie: I know. You're just good with him. That's all I'm saying.

Chris: Well, Jacob's a great kid.

Katie: I know.

Chris: And, Katie, you and I -- we, uh -- we're not friends.

Katie: What do you mean?

Chris: Well, whatever this is, whatever is going on between us went way beyond friendship weeks ago.

Katie: Yeah. I mean, we had great chemistry on the air before you quit.

Chris: No, I'm not talking about the chemistry on air, okay? I'm talking about me risking my career to help you. I mean, do you think I would do that if -- if it was just about you and me working well together on camera or because you have a cute kid? Do you know how many kids I see throughout the day? Do you know how many moms I see?

Katie: I have an idea.

Chris: Well, you know very well this is not about work or Jacob or the fact that you let me crash at your place when I threw out my back.

Katie: Well, you didn't really give me any choice. Short of calling the paramedics, what was I supposed to do?

Chris: Well, if I didn't want to be there, I would have left. And if you didn't want to -- want me there, then you would have figured out a way to get rid of me. But you didn't.

Katie: I told you, it was no big deal. Reid was working.

Chris: No, that is bull. That is bull. There is something going on here, and you know how I feel about you.

Katie: Yeah, 'cause you said some things when you were delirious on pain medication and beer. That's not reality.

Chris: Yeah, but I am stone-cold sober right now, and I still feel the same way. And I don't see you going anywhere. I mean, you're willing to risk prison for Henry and Vienna. Why not give us a chance?

Katie: Jacob's tired. I got to put him down for his nap.

Chris: No, listen to me. Jacob is fine. Katie, you need to take this off.

Katie: Excuse me? That is not your decision to make.

Chris: Look, I'm not asking you to forget about Brad or what he meant to you. But you've got to start living again. Come on. Why not -- why not see what -- what's going on between us? I am not afraid if you aren't.

[Voice breaking]

Katie: I wear this because I still feel like Brad's wife.

Chris: Do you think that's healthy? Look, Brad is gone.

Katie: It doesn't matter to me. Jacob and Brad are my family, and I'm not gonna betray him with you or anyone else, okay? So whatever this is that you think is going on between us, it's not, okay? It's not. It's never going to.

Chris: Wait a minute. I'm not finished yet.

Katie: What part of no don't you understand? We're not gonna have a relationship, Chris. Not now, not ever.

Holden: If Molly hadn't shot Whitman, he would have raped her.

Lily: I've heard the story.

Holden: It's not a story. It's a clear-cut case of self-defense.

Lily: If you say so. You were there, after all.

Holden: What are you trying to imply?

Lily: Nothing. Forget it.

Holden: So you think Molly would have gotten away with murdering a congressman in cold blood?

Lily: I don't know, Holden. It's hard to say. She wasn't exactly a role model before.

Holden: Craig stole from Parker. He burned Carly's business to the ground.

Lily: Allegedly.

Holden: Allegedly? He barely denies it. And what about what he did to your mother? He assaulted her, twice, left he in her office tied up, only for Faith to find her.

Lily: Look, I'm not saying what he did was right, but you don't know what she did to him.

Holden: You're taking Craig's side over your mother's?

Lily: She's the reason that Gabriel falsely accused Craig of attacking him before the fire.

Holden: I don't care. You're putting your guilty conscious ahead of our children.

Lily: [Sighs] I'm not the one that should feel guilty.

Holden: I'm just trying to do what's best for our kids.

Lily: I'm not talking about our kids. I'm talking about you and Molly.

Holden: What about us?

Lily: I saw the two of you destroying evidence.

Holden: What?

Lily: By the pond. You were burning DVDs in a fire. Don't tell me I imagined it, because I know what I saw. And when it comes to breaking the law, you and Molly are no better than Craig.

Holden: We weren't destroying evidence.

Lily: Come on. Why else would you be burning DVDs in the middle of nowhere?

Molly: You want answers, Lily? Ask me.

 [Door closes]

Holden: Molly, you don't have to do this. We don't owe anyone any explanations.

Lily: Are you sure about that? If you've done nothing wrong, why all the secrecy?

Holden: When were you out at the pond? And what were you doing?

Molly: Holden, it's all right. I don't want you defending me. I actually like taking care of myself, unlike Lily.

Lily: Glass houses, Molly.

Molly: Do you want the truth or not? Okay. You're half right about what you saw. We were destroying some old DVDs, but not because we were trying to cover anything up.

Lily: You couldn't just throw it in the trash? Whatever you were trying to get rid of had to go up in flames?

Molly: Yeah. Actually, it did. Because, uh, it's part of my past, a part I'm not proud of.

Lily: I guess I don't have to ask what was on those.

Molly: No. I suppose you don't.

Lily: And this is the environment you want to bring our kids into?

Holden: It's like Molly said. It's all in the past now.

Lily: And thanks to you, destroyed.

Molly: If I never think about what was on those tapes ever again I can be happy, because it's over now.

Lily: [Scoffs] Molly, you can't walk away from your bad deeds like that. Trust me. It'll come back to haunt you.

Molly: Can you honestly say that you're proud of everything that you've ever done?

Lily: No. There's a lot that I'd like to take back, starting with keeping a father from knowing his son.

Molly: Playing God is never a good idea.

Holden: All right, you know what? We're not gonna resolve this today.

Lily: Obviously.

Holden: Just remember what I said and consider the consequences.

Lily: You do the same.

Molly: Do you have any more questions, or may I have my fiancÚ back so we can plan our wedding?

Lily: Go. Just both of you go.

Holden: I'm sorry Lily went after you like that.

Molly: It's all right. I understand.

Holden: You do?

Molly: She loves you. She's not ready to let you go.

Luke: The thing that sets Memorial apart is that every person who works there takes the time to know each patient as a human being. Nobody is just a statistic or a condition, from Bob Hughes to the board of directors to the surgeons all the way down to Bob's grandson, Casey, who works there as an orderly. Everybody cares. And no amount of money or prestige takes precedence over the good, everyday human compassion that is shown to each person who walks through those doors.

Mona: Well, that's, um, quite a testament to Bob's leadership.

Luke: Well, I think he deserves it. He loves his family and his job, and I think that everyone who works in this new wing should look at him as an example of what a good doctor is.

Reid: I should go see if they, uh -- if they need my help at the E.R.

Mona: I had no idea that Dr. Oliver was so emotional.

Luke: He does an excellent job of hiding it.

Chris: Here. Take this.

Katie: What is it?

Chris: Well, you said he's prone to earaches. It's a prescription. You can have it filled out next time one comes on.

Katie: Okay. Thanks.

Bob: Well, look who's here. Hi, Katie. Hi, Jacob.

Katie: Hi, Bob.

Bob: How's the little guy doing?

Chris: Well, I'm happy to report that Jacob passed his physical with flying colors.

Bob: Well, I'm glad to hear that. You know, he gets to look more like his dad every day.

Katie: Well, I'd better get him down for his nap, or he'll be impossible for the rest of the day.

Bob: I remember that like it was yesterday.

Chris: Yeah, well, before we start with the embarrassing stories, um, I'll fill in Dr. Blanchard about Jacob's exam, so --

Katie: Okay. Thank you. Good to see you, Bob.

Bob: You take care of yourself, Katie.

Chris: Well, I'm due for a break. Can I buy you a coffee?

Bob: No, no. I'm waiting for some x-rays of a patient in the E.R.

Chris: Okay. I'll see you later then.

Bob: Hey, Chris?

Chris: Yeah?

Bob: Uh, you can tell me to mind my own business. But I'm concerned about you and Katie.

Lily: Sweetie, how did you know that I needed to see you?

Luke: Well, maybe because I needed to see you, too.

[Lily sighs]

Luke: You go first.

Lily: Your father is marrying Molly.

Luke: I kind of thought that might happen.

Lily: You saw it coming?

Luke: Well, after all that stuff that happened with that creep Whitman --

Lily: What do you know?

Luke: Well, just what I read in the newspaper and online. I really feel bad that I haven't gone to the farm to see them, but everything's been so crazy.

Lily: Molly's recovering just fine.

Luke: Are you really upset?

Lily: Sweetie, your father and I are divorced. He is free to get married again if he wants.

Luke: Mom, its okay to feel really bad about this. I mean, you and Dad thought you had that kind of love that was gonna last forever. And now it's over, and that's really sad. It would be weird if you didn't feel anything.

Lily: I feel a lot of things, but -- I need to just let go, 'cause your father has officially moved on.

Luke: Do you think you'd be able to do the same?

Lily: Of course. Your father and I had our time. It was a beautiful time. But it's over. It's really over.

Luke: You still love him, don't you?

Lily: Does it show?

Luke: [Sighs] Mom, I feel terrible for you. And I -- I don't want you to hate me for saying this, but if Molly really and truly makes Dad happy, then I guess I just have to wish him well. Unless, of course, there's something you're not telling me. Mom, what do you know that I don't?

Molly: Want a cup of coffee?

Holden: No. I'll have some juice. I'll get it.

Molly: No, I got it. You go sit down.

Holden: I never realized there were so many of these magazines.

Molly: [Chuckles] That's just the tip of the iceberg, my handsome fiancÚ. Pretty amazing when you consider that you're only supposed to get married once, in theory. I mean, it's not like a lifetime subscription is gonna do you much good, right? Here. Are you okay?

Holden: Yeah. You? I know Lily can be a --

Molly: Yes, she can. But I don't really care, as long as I get to come home with you.

Holden: Always. But I don't want to talk about Lily or those DVDs or Silas Whitman anymore.

Molly: I never did want to talk about them.

Holden: Good. Then let's focus on planning our wedding, okay?

Molly: Yes.

Holden: Am I allowed to look at these magazines, or is that bad luck?

Molly: I don't believe in luck. I believe in determination and love and us.

Holden: Where did this come from?

Molly: I got it at the newsstand. I couldn't help it. I just wanted to know what they were saying about me.

Holden: Why? You already know what happened.

Molly: Yeah, but when people give me funny looks in the checkout line, I kind of want to know what they're thinking.

Holden: I don't buy it, Molly. You never really cared much about what people think.

Molly: I fake it well. I just can't get that night out of my head. It just keeps replaying over and over again in my mind -- how the gun felt in my hand, the smell after it went off, the sound. It was just a pop. It was softer than I expected. And then all of the blood and Silas' face. [Voice breaking] I still can't believe I killed him. [Sobs] I mean, when you pull the trigger, it should feel more significant. When you end someone's life, it should be -- I don't know, but -- but it shouldn't be like that.

Holden: It's okay. It's over.

Molly: Not if Lily has anything to say about it. It will never be over -- never.

Holden: Molly, you're safe. There's nothing to be afraid of. I'm not gonna let anything happen to you.

[Voice breaking]

Molly: You can't protect me from my thoughts. Silas is in my mind. And every time I turn around, when I least expect it, I can hear him calling me a whore, threatening to show those disgusting videos to the whole world. He even threatened your children. That's why I pulled the trigger.

Holden: Molly --

Molly: What? We both know it wasn't self-defense.

Holden: Silas was obsessed with you. He wasn't going to change his mind. He wasn't going to give up. And if he couldn't have you himself, he wasn't gonna let anyone else have you either. Now, if that's not self-defense, I don't know what is.

Molly: I don't even know how to answer that.

Holden: The sheriff was convinced enough not to charge you. That's all that matters.

Molly: Not to Lily.

Holden: I don't care what Lily thinks. I love you, and I want to marry you.

Molly: It's not that simple. I told Lily that we sent the past up in flames and walked away, but that's not the truth. There's no way that I was gonna look her in the face and tell her that she was right. But you can't walk away from the bad things you do. You can't. They follow you. They never go away. Look, I messed up my life. I did. And I'm stuck with it. But I can't inflict that on you.

Holden: What are you talking about?

Molly: My past is full of ghosts, and if you have me around, it's only gonna bring you pain and heartache.

Holden: Listen, I'm not sure where you're going with this, but you better tell me.

Molly: We need to call off the wedding.

Lily: Your father proposed to Molly on the night of the shooting.

Luke: Before or after?

Lily: After.

Luke: That's kind of strange. There must have been so much going on. Why would he pick such a crazy time?

Lily: I don't know, Sweetheart. I wasn't there.

Luke: But you think that there is something else going on. I mean, you can tell me, Mom.

Lily: You were right about what you said before. I still love your father, and I want him back. But if he wants to be with Molly, then I need to find a way to let him go and move forward.

Luke: Well, I think that's a good plan.

Lily: You and Noah set a good example. I know how much you loved him. It just wasn't meant to be. And you moved on, and -- and now you found Reid.

Luke: Yeah, I don't really think that's exactly gonna happen.

Lily: Why? What are you talking about?

Luke: Let's just say we have irreconcilable differences.

Lily: Luke, why didn't you tell me? You let me go on and on about me. I feel terrible.

Luke: Oh, no, no. It's okay. Don't.

Lily: Well, do you want to talk about it?

Luke: There's not really much to talk about. I mean, you know how Reid and I were working together on the new hospital wing.

Lily: I thought it was going well.

Luke: Well, yeah. It -- it is. It's going too well maybe. This big corporation is interested in buying the hospital now, so they have all these businesspeople walking around, asking questions. It's kind of like there's a microscope on the entire hospital. And Bob doesn't want anything that looks a little dicey.

Lily: Bob Hughes thinks being gay is dicey?

Luke: No, no! Mom, no! Nothing like that. It's just I am a major financial contributor to the new wing, and Reid is in charge of it, so it looks like there could be a conflict of interests. So, Bob talked to Reid and gave him an ultimatum. He either gets to head this new neuro wing, which is his dream job, or be with me. Guess which one he chose?

Lily: Sweetie, I am so sorry. He doesn't know what he's missing.

Luke: [Chuckles] Yeah, you know what? I think he does.

Lily: And he's not very smart for being a brain surgeon. Listen to me. Don't you give up. You still have plenty of time to find the person you can love who can love you back the way you deserve.

Luke: So do you.

Chris: Uh, don't know what you're talking about, Dad. Katie and I -- we're -- we're friends. Although sometimes I even wonder if we're that.

Bob: I know what I see, Son.

Chris: Well, then, did you see the ring on her finger? Pretty tough to miss. She still thinks of herself as Mrs. Brad Snyder, and the way she's hanging on, I don't think that's gonna change anytime soon.

Bob: I'm not passing judgment.

Chris: Well, there's nothing to judge.

Bob: If you say so. Look, you're a very handsome couple. If the situation were different --

Chris: I don't understand. You think we're good together, but you think it's wrong.

Bob: I know Katie pretty well, and your mother looks upon her as -- as family. And I was with her when Brad died. No, that -- that ring on her finger is not just for show. She's still deeply grieving, and she's doing the best she can to be the best mother she can for that little boy.

Chris: I know that, and I -- I feel for her. But she shouldn't mourn forever. I mean, she's got to figure out a way to start living again.

Bob: I agree. But it has to be in her time, not yours. All I'm saying is slow down, build your practice, put down roots. And if there is to be a time between you and Katie, both of you will know.

Katie: Hey. What are you doing home in the middle of the day?

Reid: Katie, what is wrong with me?

[Whispering]

 Katie: Shh, shh, shh, shh. Jacob's asleep.

Reid: Oh, please. That kid could sleep through anything. I asked you a serious question. What is wrong with me?

Katie: What are we talking about? Looks, personality?

Reid: I made the right choice. I made the only choice. I am a surgeon. Luke knows that. I uprooted my entire life to come out here and set up that new neuro facility for Memorial because I can do it better than anybody else. The patients who are going to go through that facility deserve the best chance that only I can give them. I made a commitment to make this happen. I can't just turn my back and -- and walk out before it's up and running!

Katie: No, of course not.

Reid: You understand this. Why can't Luke?

Katie: What are you talking about?

Reid: I broke things off with Luke.

Katie: Why?

Reid: Bob Hughes made me choose between running the best neuro facility in the region and being Luke Snyder's boyfriend. I mean, it was obvious which was the right choice. It was a no-brainer. Why do I feel like I'm crawling out of my skin?

Katie: You feel that way because you're falling in love.

Reid: Well, then, the sappy greeting cards have it all wrong, 'cause I've never felt worse in my life.

Katie: Well, welcome to the human race, Reid. We've been waiting for you.

Reid: You think this is funny? I did what I had to do. It's over. I just want to go back to my work, forget it ever happened.

Katie: You don't get to choose love. It chooses you. I mean, you think you've finally settled into your life, and then all of a sudden, you start wanting things that you didn't think you'd ever want again, because that part of your life was over, right? And then this guy comes into your life and gets you thinking again and gets you wanting to be happy and believing that that can happen. And sometimes you want it, and sometimes you'd rather die. But then you think, "Maybe I should just let my feelings take over. Maybe I should just let it happen and hope and pray that my heart won't be broken into a million pieces again." What?

Reid: Yeah. Are we still talking about me?

Katie: This is all about you. I've already had my one great love. It was Brad. You still have yours to look forward to.

Reid: If it feels anything like the way I feel right now, no, thank you.

Katie: It only feels bad because you're not together.

Reid: But that's not my choice.

Katie: What? You just stood there and told me it was and you made the best one. Oh, you're infuriating. No wonder you drive Luke crazy.

Reid: This isn't my first relationship, you know?

Katie: Yeah, you know, when you first got here, all you talked about was you and how great you are and all you cared about was you. I mean, who would want to date that guy?

Reid: Thanks.

Katie: I'm serious. Who would be good enough? But you have changed, Reid. Luke brought out the best in you.

Reid: What are you -- he's brought out the worst in me. I had it all figured out before I came here. I knew who I was, what I wanted. I don't even remember what that was like anymore. I can't choose to walk away from the hospital. If I'm not Dr. Reid Oliver, I don't know who I am.

Katie: Maybe it's time you found out.

Reid: What if it's not worth it?

Katie: I loved my husband with all my heart and soul. I'm telling you, this is your chance.

Reid: That's my beer.

Katie: Take a deep breath and trust me. Just do it. Go for it. It's worth it. [Sighs]

[Knock on door]

Katie: Oh, please. Tell me you didn't chicken out already.

Chris: Hey. I'm sorry I didn't call first.

Katie: It's okay. Come in.

Chris: No. That's okay. This won't take long. I want you to know that your -- your secret is safe with me. As far as I'm concerned, Vienna is pregnant.

Katie: Thank you.

Chris: And I heard what you said before about you and me, and I'm sorry I put you in an awkward position. But don't worry. From now on, I am out of your life.

Reid: Hey, Bob, can I have a minute?

Bob: Sure. Oh, listen, Mona Cross was glowing after that meeting. Whatever you said and whatever Luke said --

Reid: I didn't say anything. And that was my last meeting. I quit.

Noah: Hey. Thought you had a meeting.

Luke: It's over. Thank God. I could not get out of there fast enough.

Noah: I guess Reid was there, too, huh?

Luke: Yeah. You know me too well.

Noah: Yeah. You know, I wish I didn't have such a good memory when it came to you.

Luke: Aw. I'd be sad if you didn't. You know, I talked to my mom today. My dad is getting married to Molly.

Noah: Really? Is that a good thing or --

Luke: Well, I guess it is, for my dad at least. My mom is still in love with him, so she's gonna be sad for a while. But she told me something interesting today. She said that they had a beautiful time together and it's over, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't important.

Noah: "Beautiful time." I get that.

Luke: Yeah. Me too. Except I --

Noah: What?

Luke: [Groans] I just wish I could go into my memory banks and erase the image of you kissing that freak Zac, the whack attack. [Chuckles]

Noah: Okay, uh, he kissed me. It's really not the other way around.

Luke: Oh, come on, Noah. Admit it. You secretly loved it.

Noah: Oh, yeah. I don't think so. If I ever make a horror movie, I -- I'll know where to start -- Zac.

Luke: Zac.

Holden: Molly, we are not calling off the wedding just because Lily is unhappy.

[Voice breaking]

Molly: That's not the reason, Holden. I don't want to get you in more trouble.

Holden: What trouble?

Molly: You're an accessory to murder. You'll go to jail if the truth comes out.

Holden: Nothing is going to come out. There were only three of us at that restaurant, and Silas Whitman is not coming back to testify.

Molly: I love you. I love you for wanting to stick by me. But I can't ask you to lie for me, because that changes who you are, and I don't want that on my shoulders.

Holden: Molly, if you hadn't killed Silas, he would have found a way to ruin your life. That's all the truth that I need.

Molly: You're not listening to me. I don't want this, okay? I'm not gonna get away with what I did. I never do. But I -- I can handle whatever happens, as long as I'm not responsible for your children losing their father.

Holden: There's no way things are gonna turn out like that.

Molly: It could if Lily doesn't stop asking questions.

Holden: She's grasping at straws. She doesn't know anything about what happened that night.

Molly: I've got a really bad feeling.

Holden: You know what? Forget about Lily. I love you. I want to keep you safe. No more talk about canceling the wedding. In fact, you know what? Let's just do the opposite. Let's get married today.

Slocum: Where's Lucinda?

Lily: Uh, she's not here. I haven't seen her yet this morning. I'm Lily Walsh. You've worked for my mother before. You're a private investigator, right, Mr. Slocum? Is there anything I can do to help you?

Slocum: You could let me leave this. Save me another trip.

Lily: Do you mind if I ask you what's in there?

Slocum: Forensic report on the Silas Whitman shooting.

Lily: Did my mother hire you to get this for her?

Slocum: Your mama was right to ask a lot of questions. That rinky-dink sheriff left a lot of loose ends.

Lily: Thank you.

Slocum: Mm-hmm.

[Lily sighs]

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Luke: You can't just pretend I don't exist. We're bound to run into each other all the time.

Reid: Not for much longer.

Noah: Reid quit his job at Memorial.

Luke: What?

Noah: He didn't choose his job over you.

Lucinda: This document gives us what we want. We can drive a wedge between Holden and Molly for good.

Holden: I love you, and I want to fall asleep tonight next to my wife. So what do you say?

Molly: I say I do. I do.

[Both laugh]
