Bill: [Groans] Ugh.

Brooke: How are you feeling?

Bill: [Groaning] Like, uh... my eyeballs are going to explode in my head.

Brooke: I see.

Bill: And the life-force will drain out of my eye sockets.

Brooke: Mm. Hangover and a bump on the head.

Bill: [Groans]

Brooke: Luckily for you, I have just the antidote.

Katie: So, he's been fed, and he's changed. He'll probably just drift back off to sleep. Neither one of us got very much sleep last night.

Donna: I should have stayed. I mean, you seemed so sure that Bill was gonna come home.

Katie: Well, maybe this isn't his home anymore.

Donna: Katie, don't -- don't assume that.

Katie: Certain assumptions have to be made when your husband spends the night with another woman.

Donna: How is Brooke justifying this to herself?

Katie: I don't know. Listen, if he wakes up and he's hungry, just give him some of that, uh, sweet-potato puree. That's his favorite.

Donna: Are you sure you want to go there and confront them?

Katie: [Sighs] Well, what alternative do I have? [Sniffles] I can't just walk away. Last time I did that is how this all started.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, I noticed my dad's car isn't here. Is he...coming back?

Donna: I couldn't say. Um, you know, maybe he's at the office.

Liam: No, I checked. I mean, he was the one who wanted to meet here for privacy. We have some strategizing to do before the union talks tomorrow.

Donna: Strategy? [Chuckles] I thought your dad did whatever he wanted.

Liam: Well, even that takes some finesse.

[Footsteps approaching]

Hope: Hey, Stranger.

Liam: Hi.

Bill: [Groans softly] All right. What the hell is this?

Brooke: [Sighs] It's a concoction of mine.

Bill: It's like a tangy, herbal...

Brooke: Well, it does have some cilantro in it.

Bill: I hate cilantro. What else is in here?

Brooke: Just drink it.

Bill: Mm.

Brooke: Not so bad, is it?

Bill: [Groans] [Sighs] Wow. I feel a little... a little bit better. Are you a witch? Aah!

Brooke: Yeah. I know. It's cold.

Bill: Yeah.

Brooke: That's why they call it a cold compress.

Bill: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: But your head is about three times too big right now.

Bill: Hmm.

Brooke: You'll get used to it.

Bill: I should call Katie.

Brooke: Yeah, you should. It was a terrible conversation I had with her last night.

Bill: Well, you were frazzled.

Brooke: I was scared.

Bill: It's understandable. You're concerned about a scandal.

Brooke: No. I was worried.

Bill: I'm okay. I'm too mean to kill.

Brooke: Mm. Don't joke.

Bill: You did everything right last night, Brooke. You took great care of me.

Brooke: I doubt Katie will think that. You should probably drive straight home instead of calling her.

Bill: Can my car even make it that far?

Brooke: [Chuckles] That's a good point. I'll call you a cab. And Lieutenant Baker's not there anymore. I looked.

[Door closes]

Brooke: I wonder if that's Hope.

Bill: You said she left.

Brooke: Yeah, she did, but maybe she forgot something. I really think that you and Katie are gonna be fine, but its Katie and me that I'm -- I'm worried about. Would you put in a good word for me? She is my sister, and I love her very much.

Katie: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I knew I shouldn't have come here. Oh, my God.

Brooke: Katie, wait. I-I didn't explain about --

Katie: Shut up! You make me sick! You both make me sick!

Hope: This is my morning with Will.

Liam: It is?

Hope: Yeah. Every week. I mean [Chuckling] I don't want to wait and meet him when he's 10. Didn't Katie say anything to you?

Donna: No, but, you know, um, if this is your morning, I was gonna go to work, so do you mind?

Hope: No, of course. Go back to work before Pam colonizes your half of the desk.

Donna: Great.

Liam: Uh, you know, I can -- I can stay 'cause my dad was gonna meet me here anyway.

Donna: Um...okay. Sure. You guys work it out however you want. So, all right, um, there's formula and soft food in the kitchen, but, you know, he's not gonna need to eat for at least an hour or two, and I just changed a big one, so...

Hope: Lovely. Great. Thank you.

Donna: Okay.

Hope: All right, well, don't worry about anything. He's gonna be fine.

Donna: Okay. Bye-bye.

Hope: Say "Bye."

Donna: Love you.

Hope: [Chuckles]

Liam: Um... I really can stay.

Hope: Did you get all the diaper-changing training?

Liam: It was not rocket science.

Hope: No, of course not, and you listened because you'll need that information...soon.

Liam: Yeah. Um, you know, I-I really don't mind if you go.

Hope: I mind giving up my morning with Will. [Chuckles] And what if your dad calls and wants you to meet him somewhere else? That could happen easily.

Liam: Yeah, that sounds like him.

Hope: Yeah. Well, okay, then... I guess we're playing house.

Liam: [Chuckling] Yeah.

Hope: [Chuckles]

Liam: Pbht!

Hope: [Chuckles]

[Will laughs]

Hope: Yeah. Yeah. [Chuckles]

Brooke: Katie, you have to listen to me.

Katie: Oh, I'm gonna be sick.

Bill: Katie.

Brooke: There was an accident.

Katie: I'm gonna be sick.

Bill: Katie, Katie, listen --

Katie: Don't touch me!

Brooke: He was hurt.

Katie: Wha-- what happened to you?

Brooke: That's exactly what I'm trying to tell you.

Katie: What did you do?!

Bill: I crashed the car.

Katie: You -- you what?

Bill: I-I-I crashed the car. After you -- you reamed Brooke out for texting me, I told her to meet me at the house. I wanted the three of us to hash this out.

Katie: Oh, it looks like you're getting your wish!

Bill: The -- the -- the point is that I should not have gotten behind the wheel.

Katie: You drove?! You drove after having all those shots?!

Bill: I have never done that before, and you know that.

Katie: Oh, my God.

Brooke: Some kind of drinking game you were playing.

Katie: Oh, okay. I get it. So -- so how long do I have to wait before your driving drunk becomes my fault?

Bill: Br-- Brooke's car is totaled, apparently.

Katie: You ran into each other?

Bill: I lost control. I-I sideswiped Brooke. We both went off the road. She drove me here.

Katie: You drove him here -- not home, not the hospital?!

Bill: I said no doctors.

Brooke: And the car could barely make it here, and we didn't want the police to get involved.

Katie: Right. Right. You didn't want a DUI and all the headlines that go along with it.

Brooke: No, of course not. And as it was, Lieutenant Baker showed up at the door.

Katie: Why didn't you tell me this on the phone last night?

Brooke: Because I didn't want you to worry. You would have rushed right over here, and of course, Lieutenant Baker would have thought there was something fishy going on.

Katie: So, you think this -- you think this is -- is better? This is the lesser of two evils?

Brooke: Nothing happened.

Katie: [Chuckles]

Bill: It's the truth, Katie.

Katie: Why would I believe anything that comes out of your mouth?!

Bill: I swear to you. Yes, I spent the night in this bed. Brooke was not in it!

Katie: [Sobbing] You should have come home to me! You should have come home to your son! You should have been in my bed, not hers! [Sobbing]

Bill: Katie.

Liam: So, is it, like, amazing that he's already eating solid food a little bit?

Hope: No, it's about right.

Liam: Yeah?

Hope: Uh-huh.

Liam: Is Katie waking up every few hours to feed him, still?

Hope: Uh, probably, yeah.

Liam: Wow. It really does change everything in your life.

Hope: It does. It really does. And people forget that. But I saw it with R.J. I mean... people can get so impatient with mothers, and, you know, they can think, "Can't you just give it a rest for one second and pay attention to me," but babies are really just a little big bundle of need. So you're gonna have to be really...just really patient, you know, with Steffy when the time comes.

Liam: Yeah. I... yeah. I guess my concern is just...

Hope: Very patient. [Chuckling] What?

Liam: I'm saying... what if I'm not cut out to be anybody's father?

Hope: Liam... you'll be perfect.

[Will fusses]

Liam: Oh, I know.

Hope: You're gonna be some little boy or girl's dream father.

Liam: [Baby voice] Yeah, well, they don't really address that question in Lamaze class, do they?

Hope: [Chuckles] Trust me, all you have to do to be a good dad is be yourself. What, you don't believe me?

Liam: [Normal voice] I, uh, I made a new year's resolution not to argue with people who say nice things to me, but -- 'cause there's so few of them left -- but why is it you're so comfortable around babies?

Hope: I don't know. I guess it's because I thought of R.J. as a baby long after he was one. And I always watched my mom with other people's kids. I feel like babies are her natural peer group. That sounded weird. That's not what I meant. I just mean, like -- I mean, she's so good at baby talk and acting silly, and babies just get her, and she gets them.

Liam: Yeah.

[Rattle shakes]

Hope: [Chuckles]

Liam: [High-pitched voice] What is that?!

Hope: It's an angry flower.

Liam: [Normal voice] Clearly, I belong exclusively to the "Acting silly" school of thought, which I'm sure doesn't shock you.

Hope: Well, I'll tell you what I think if you really want to know. This is... what I thought the life we'd have would always look like. And I can't help think we'd be really good at it.

Katie: [Sighs]

Brooke: The way that you're thinking of me right now -- that is not the person that I am.

Katie: I don't know who you are. You covered for him when he did something so incredibly reckless. Do you think that makes you a good friend?! Do you think makes you a good sister?!

Bill: How about leaving Brooke out of this? This is about our relationship -- yours and mine.

Katie: What relationship, Bill? And we can't leave her out of it because she's your confidant now, right? Isn't that what you told me? She's here to make all your bad choices seem okay, because I'm the one with the problem, right? Because I'm too rigid. I'm too uptight. I mean, "Just let him have a drink every now and then, Katie. He's not an alcoholic." "Nothing happened. We were rolling around in a bed together, but nothing happened." "I got drunk and crashed the car, but nothing happened."

Bill: All right, enough, Katie. Enough. Are you saying you don't believe us?

Katie: What difference does it make?

Bill: The difference it makes is that you're then calling me a liar.

Katie: You are lying to yourself if you think that there is nothing going on here. It doesn't take a genius to figure out where this is going. How long do you think I'm gonna stick around while you say, "Nothing happened"? Meanwhile, you're just creeping closer and closer to that line without actually crossing it.

Brooke: [Sighs] Whatever you think's gonna happen between Bill and me is not going to happen. Ever. You are my sister. And your happiness means more to me than anything.

Katie: Do I look happy to you?

Bill: Not for lack of trying on my part.

Katie: [Scoffs]

Bill: I mean, unless I completely change who I am, nothing is good enough for you.

Katie: Oh, my God! How selfish can you be?! Poor Bill -- so misunderstood. Stuck with a wife who's just not any fun anymore. It's not just about you. We have a child. I have to take care of my son. I have to do what's best for him, and I'm sorry, Bill, but I just don't trust you anymore. [Sniffles] [Sighs]

Liam: [Sighs] Damn.

[Cell phone beeps]

Hope: Did you get a hold of him?

Liam: My dad? No. Maybe he's getting old and forgetful.

Hope: No. I just think he's inconsiderate.

Liam: Ah. [Chuckles] Maybe I'm getting old and forgetful.

Hope: [Laughs]

Liam: So, did you, um -- did you give him a bath?

Hope: Oh, no. He was just spitting up when I burped him.

Liam: Oh. Uh-oh.

Hope: Oh, don't worry. Everything about babies is cute and sweet-smelling until they're like 14, and that's when they get really gross.

Liam: Yeah, but then you got your early bloomers who start smelling gross around 11 or 12. I think I was one of those, actually. I never smelled good.

Hope: What are you talking about? You smell great. You smell like soap. It's good. Until you get all, like, sweaty and stuff, and then it's... [Laughs] Oh, poor Will. We wore him out.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Oh, man.

Liam: Sometimes I wish I could get back to that thing that little kids do where they can just, you know, fall asleep in the middle of whatever it is they're doing.

Hope: Mm, right.

Liam: You get older, and life gets so compartmentalized. Like, oh, this is the room we eat in. This is the room we sleep in. This is the special place where we go potty.

Hope: [Laughs] It's true. I mean, everything is -- is well and good and sweet-smelling for a few years, and then you have to...straighten up and start... coloring between the lines.

Liam: Yeah, well, I'm sorry I'm on one side of the line and you're on the other.

Hope: Me too.

Liam: [Sighs]

Bill: Selfish? Are you sure that's just a one-way street, Katie? Nobody loves spending time with Will more than I do. And I appreciate your attentiveness as a mother. I'm just asking for a little balance -- some time that is devoted to us in a day...or a week or two weeks. But you don't want to hear it. You don't want to hear anything I have to say. So, what now? What -- the usual? You gonna walk out or threaten to? Has that ever gotten you what you wanted, Katie?

Brooke: Katie, listen to me. Bill loves you.

Katie: You're right. I have walked out in the past. And I always come back. And maybe that was my mistake. Maybe I should have just kept walking. I won't make that mistake again because I'm done. I'm done with all the secrecy. I'm done with the deception. I'm done with the juvenile acting out. I am done watching over my shoulder, wondering what lies I've been told, wondering who's gaining on me. Life is too short. He wants someone he can play games with. He wants someone he can drink with, someone who will write him an emotional blank check for whatever he wants to do, and that someone, clearly, is you. You are far better suited for him than I am. He's yours. You can have him.

Brooke: God, no.

Katie: I mean it, Brooke. Take him. He's yours.

Brooke: What are you talking about? Bill and I are just friends.

Katie: You don't have any friends. Stephanie was your friend. I was your friend. Women don't trust you, and men either want to sleep with you or they already have. You and Brooke are just friends.

Bill: How about you stop making this about me and Brooke and making it about you and me?

Katie: How about you stop dodging my questions? You don't have to answer. It's written all over you. Take him, Brooke. I mean it.

Brooke: Stop saying that, Katie. This is not what you want.

Katie: It doesn't matter. None of it matters. The only thing I want right now... is a divorce.
