Lucas: What do you want? For you.

Chloe: Thank you.

Lucas: Yeah, it's a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.

Chloe: I don't know how you did it -- living with Sami, E.J., and John.

Lucas: It wasn't so easy, you know, but having Allie there made it less painful.

Chloe: So, have you figured out where you're gonna live yet?

Lucas: Actually, yeah. Stay at the Horton cabin for a while.

Chloe: That's great.

Lucas: I was kind of hoping that you'd come with us.

Kate: Are you out of your mind?

Lexie: Oh, great.

Daniel: Tough day?

Lexie: Yeah.

Daniel: Difficult patients or pain-in-the-butt staff?

Lexie: Try difficult patients, whiny staff, Abe, Theo. It's just all very difficult.

Daniel: Sounds like you could use a coffee break.

Lexie: Well, actually, I was thinking along the lines of a tropical vacation.

Daniel: Well, that could be arranged, you know.

Lexie: Yeah, right. I wish. There's too much going on here at the hospital.

Daniel: So we're back to the coffee.

Lexie: Well, actually, that'll have to wait. Abe and I have an appointment soon. Excuse me.

Daniel: Oh, well, then, we'll just keep this brief.

Lexie: I'm sorry. Keep what brief?

Daniel: Your unloading session.

Lexie: What are you talking about?

Daniel: The other day, you did a hell of a job listening to me while I went on about Chelsea.

Lexie: Yeah, well, that's what friends do.

Daniel: Well, now it's my turn to listen to you, so you go ahead. You just unload.

Lexie: [Chuckles] Well, Daniel, I didn't realize we were taking turns.

Daniel: Well, now you do.

Lexie: I-I don't think I can talk about it without getting upset.

Daniel: Well, that's exactly why you should talk about it.

Lexie: [Sighs] I know. [Sighs]

Daniel: Hey, come on. Hey. What's going on, Lexie?

Lexie: Theo is in therapy. The hospital review board has asked for a meeting with me regarding my responsibility for what happened during the lock down.

Daniel: Yeah, the press is all over that. They're looking for a fall guy.

Lexie: Yeah, that would be me.

Daniel: Hey, if you need anyone to speak on your behalf, you just say the word.

Lexie: Thanks. Thanks. I just might take you up on that. And, you know, I mean, of course Abe and I just haven't seen eye to eye for months. I just -- oh, Daniel, I just feel like my life is spiraling out of control.

Daniel: Hey. Hey, come here.

E.J.: There you are. I've been trying to call you.

Sami: Really? Um, I guess I must have left my phone off. What's up?

E.J.: I just came from the courthouse. I have some news. Your custody hearing has been moved to today.

Sami: It has? What time?

E.J.: Relax. Relax. Your presence is not required.

Sami: I don't understand. Doesn't the judge need to interview me?

E.J.: Apparently not. He seems to think he can make a decision based on the deposition that you and Lucas gave.

Sami: Wow. This is happening fast.

E.J.: It is. I would imagine that by the end of today you'll have a decision about Allie's custody.

Sami: Does Lucas know?

E.J.: I don't think so. Mickey was talking to his lawyer when I left the courthouse.

Sami: This is so surreal. E.J., what happens if the judge rules in Lucas' favor?

E.J.: Come on, let's not get ahead of ourselves, shall we?

Sami: I mean, I'm the one who feeds her when she's hungry. I'm the one who takes care of her when she's crying. The other night, she -- she finally said, "Mama."

E.J.: She did?

Sami: Can you believe it? She finally said my name. Not Lucas'...mine.

E.J.: Samantha, you're a wonderful mother. The judge is fully aware of that.

Sami: I just don't want to lose her, E.J.

E.J.: What about Lucas?

Sami: What?

E.J.: Are you afraid of losing him, as well?

Kate: Lucas, you can't get involved with her right now.

Lucas: Mom, you got to stay out of this.

Kate: No, you need to listen to me. [Coughing]

Lucas: You all right?

Abe: Lexie.

Lexie: Abe.

Abe: Daniel.

Daniel: I haven't seen you around here in a while. Criminals in the city keeping you busy?

Abe: You could say that.

Lexie: Oh, honey, you're early.

Abe: Thought we might grab a cup of coffee before our appointment.

Lexie: Yeah, yeah. Sounds great. Um, we'll talk later.

Daniel: All right, sure.

Abe: Actually, Daniel...if I could have a moment, I'd like to have a word with you.

Daniel: Sure, I got plenty of time for the boss' husband.

Abe: I want you to stay away from my wife.

Kate: [Coughing]

Chloe: I'll go get you some water.

Lucas: Good idea. Thanks.

Kate: Thank you.

Lucas: Mom, you okay?

Kate: Yes, I'm fine.

Lucas: You don't sound fine. How long have you had that cough?

Kate: Awhile.

Lucas: Well, don't you think it's a good idea to go to the doctor or something?

Kate: I will, I will. Lucas, I will. Thank you.

Lucas: You know what? I'm gonna call Lexie, see if she can fit you in today.

Kate: No, please don't. I said that I'm fine. Lucas, we need to talk. You finally got out of this relationship with Sami. You're getting your life back on track. Do you really want to jeopardize your future getting involved in another doomed relationship?

Sami: E.J., I have a lot of regrets, but losing Lucas isn't something I can control.

E.J.: Yeah, but you and Lucas have been down this trail before.

Sami: And look where it's gotten us.

E.J.: Well, it certainly seems like he's moving on with Chloe.

Sami: Which is a big mistake. But you know what? Lucas is trying to take my daughter away from me, and that is all I care about. As long as I don't lose Allie, I don't care who he's with.

E.J.: Look, I'm not worried about Lucas getting hurt. I'm worried about you.

Sami: Me? Why?

E.J.: Are we, uh -- are we gonna talk about what happened in the stairwell?

Sami: I thought we already did.

E.J.: Samantha, a few words quickly exchanged immediately after the fact hardly constitutes a conversation.

Sami: What are you talking about? We were open and honest with each other about our feelings.

E.J.: Okay, but now that a little bit of time has passed, there's been a little bit of distance between it, I'm just gonna ask you again -- do you regret it?

Sami: No.

Kate: Lucas, I'm telling you, you are making a mistake if you get involved with Chloe.

Chloe: Okay, I think I'm gonna leave now.

Lucas: Wait, wait, wait. Don't go. Come on, please.

Chloe: Lucas, I am not gonna sit here and listen to your mom trash me.

Lucas: I know. We need to talk, though.

Chloe: Okay, you need to deal with your mother first. Just call me when you're done.

Lucas: All right, all right, all right. Um...can you at least just do me a favor first?

Chloe: Sure.

Lucas: Can you get the keys to the boat and the boathouse from Maggie?

Chloe: Of course.

Lucas: All right, cool. Thank you. I appreciate it. I'll see you soon.

Kate: [Clears throat]

Lucas: What is your problem with Chloe?

Kate: Aside from the fact that she turned Brady into a drug addict and tried to seduce and use your brother?

Lucas: You're wrong about that. She did not turn Brady into a drug addict and we talked about what happened between her and Philip, so you're wrong about that, too. Now you're gonna gloat, right?  

Kate: Honey, I am not gonna gloat. I'm just happy that you --

Lucas: Finally wised up and learned something after all these years. Go ahead. Hit me hard with it.

Kate: Okay, so now are you just gonna have a conversation with yourself, or can I talk, too?

Lucas: Fine. Go ahead.

Kate: I know you don't want to hear this --

Lucas: But you're gonna tell me anyway, so let's hear it.

Kate: Because you need to listen to me.

Lucas: No, I don't have to do anything.

Kate: Lucas, I want to help you, and I want to help Allie. That's it.

Lucas: What does this have to do with Allie?

Kate: You are in the middle of a custody battle. Do you realize that judge is going to be looking at every aspect of your life, including the people that you surround yourself with?

Lucas: Yeah, yeah, I understand. What's your point?

Kate: My point is Chloe is not mother material.

Lucas: Neither were you.

Abe: In the future...I would appreciate it if you keep your contact with my wife strictly professional.

Lexie: Abe.

Daniel: For the record, Lexie and I are just friends and colleagues. So I'm sorry you feel threatened by that.

Lexie: Daniel, would you excuse us?

Daniel: Sure.

Lexie: What was that all about?

Abe: You know, I could ask you the same question.

Lexie: We were talking, Abe.

Abe: About our relationship.

Lexie: Yeah, among other things.

Abe: If you're upset, if you want to discuss some issue that's bothering you, I'd prefer you come to me.

Lexie: Honey, come on. You know we're just not connecting.

Abe: So you turn to Daniel.

Lexie: Daniel's not the issue here, Abe.

Abe: The hell he isn't. Now, you're doing it again, Lexie, and I will not stand for it.

Lexie: What are you -- what are you talking about?

Abe: You know exactly what I'm talking about.

Lexie: No, I don't.

Abe: Well, then, let me freshen your memory. Brandon, Tek.

Lexie: I thought we moved past that, Abe.

Abe: Well, so did I. I'd say for the last...several months, you've been withdrawing from our relationship. And until now, I thought it was because you were under so much stress at work and, of course, this situation with Theo. And now I see you with Daniel today, and...I'm not so sure.

Lexie: So you immediately assume we're having an affair?

Abe: This is not the first time that I've seen the two of you together like this.

Lexie: As he said, Abe, we are friends. That's it.

Abe: Oh, I hear you. I'm just not sure I believe you.

Maggie: Chloe?

Chloe: Oh, hi, Maggie.

Maggie: I thought that was you. I forgot how big this park was.

Chloe: Oh, I'm sorry. I should have told you I was waiting near the sandbox.

Maggie: Oh, it's okay. I mean, I had a nice little walk. But if you don't mind, I'd like to join you for a while till I catch my breath.

Chloe: Of course. Sit down.

Maggie: Oh, and, listen, I almost forgot -- um, here are the keys. The little key is for the padlock on the boathouse, and the big key is for the boat. It should be all gassed up. And there are spare keys in the drawer next to the sink in the cabin.

Chloe: Got it.

Maggie: [Laughs] I know that was a lot.

Chloe: No, it's okay. I'll make sure that Lucas gets them.

Maggie: Okay.

Chloe: So...did he tell you that I was going with him?

Maggie: Yes. But Lucas and I -- we didn't speak for very long. Um, I gathered that he and Kate were having a heated discussion.

Chloe: Yeah, she's upset that Lucas and I are together.

Maggie: Kate is very protective of her children.

Chloe: I wish she would just leave us alone.

Maggie: Well, I know that would make things a whole lot easier.

Chloe: Yes, it would.

Maggie: Well...what you did, leaving them alone, was a good thing during their heated discussion, because if you had been there, it probably would have complicated things.

Chloe: Oh, I think things are already pretty complicated.

Maggie: What do you mean?

Chloe: Well, I don't know how much you know about me and Lucas or how we got together.

Maggie: Well, Lucas has never discussed it.

Chloe: Well, it happened when he was living at the mansion.

Maggie: Hmm. Well, I kind of figured as much.

Chloe: And, needless to say, Sami wasn't too happy about it.

Maggie: I can imagine. Sami and Lucas -- they have a long history.

Chloe: Too long.

Maggie: And it's beginning to get a bit too much, isn't it?

Chloe: How'd you know?

Maggie: Oh, Chloe, ha ha, been there, done that. Let's just say it wasn't easy.

Chloe: So, what happened in your situation?

Maggie: Long story short... oh, I fell in love with a man -- his name was Don Craig -- when I was still married to Mickey. Oh. Of course, at the time, I thought Mickey was dead. Stefano -- he staged his death, which is really beside the point. Once I realized that Mickey was still alive, I tried to convince myself that the love I felt for Don...was stronger than the feelings I had for Mickey.

Chloe: But they weren't?

Maggie: No. But, of course, I didn't figure that out until after I had divorced Mickey. You know, looking back, I guess I realized don -- he's what you call a, um -- a rebound guy. I know that sounds awful, but he was someone that filled the void that Mickey had left...when I thought he was gone for good.

Chloe: So, you think that Lucas might be my rebound?

Maggie: Chloe, only you can answer that.

Kate: I may not have been the best mother, but I always put the interest of my children first. There's nothing I wouldn't have done for you.

Lucas: I know. I'm sorry I said that.

Kate: I just want what's best for you.

Lucas: Then let me make my own decision here.

Kate: I know. I know I should, and I'm trying. I really am. It's just so hard for me to sit back and watch you make the same mistakes over and over again. [Door closes]

E.J.: Mickey.

Sami: Mickey, so, has the judge made the decision?

Mickey: Not yet.

Sami: This is like torture, waiting for someone else to determine my child's future.

Mickey: I know it's hard, but you should just try to relax. It's out of your hands now.

Sami: I know.

Mickey: I still need to talk to Lucas. He doesn't know what's going on yet. Will you run by the office and take care of that issue we discussed earlier?

E.J.: I'll do it now.

Mickey: Hang in there.

E.J.: Okay. Are you going to be all right?

Sami: I guess.

E.J.: Are you sure?

Sami: Yeah.

E.J.: All right. I'll be back as quick as I can, okay?

Sami: Call me if you hear anything.

E.J.: I will -- the moment.

Lucas: Mickey, what's up?

Mickey: Ken Matthews asked me to give you a message.

Kate: Ken Matthews?

Lucas: Yeah, he's the lawyer on my custody case. E.J. works for Mickey, so if he represents me and E.J. and represents Sami, there's a conflict of interest.

Kate: Okay, I get it.

Lucas: What's the message?

Mickey: Judge Holland is currently reviewing your case. We'll have his decision by the end of the day.

Lucas: Well, great. There it is, then. Does Sami know about it?

Mickey: You haven't seen her? She's right there.

Hope: Daniel...just the person I was hoping to see.

Daniel: Oh, what can I do for you, hope?

Hope: Well, you can tell me what happened between you and Chelsea that made her leave town and go to France.

Chloe: Honestly, Maggie, I don't know, but I do care about Lucas 

Maggie: Well, of course you do. Have you given any thought to how you feel about Brady?

Chloe: Brady and I are divorced.

Maggie: Yes, but have you moved on emotionally?

Chloe: I believe that I have.

Maggie: And Lucas -- has he cut his emotional ties to Sami?

Chloe: He says he has.

Maggie: And what do you think?

Chloe: I don't know for so many years. And they have two kids together. I imagine it would be really difficult to emotionally disconnect from the mother of your children.

Maggie: Hmm, well, that's a fair assessment.

Chloe: So, what does that mean for our relationship?

Maggie: I don't know. But now might be the time for you to think long and hard about what you really want.

Chloe: What do you mean?

Maggie: Lucas is in the middle of a custody battle with Sami, and there's a possibility that he will gain custody of Allie. Now, have you even thought about what this would mean for you or your relationship?

Chloe: No, I-I haven't. I just was hoping that he would get to be with his daughter.

Maggie: Well, it's hard raising a child with two parents, but being a single parent -- it involves a whole set of sacrifices.

Chloe: I never even thought about that.

Maggie: Well, maybe you should. Um...I have the deepest respect for Lucas. And any woman would be lucky to have him as a partner. Having said that, like everyone, Lucas comes with his own set of baggage. Now, I encourage you to take this time while you're at the Horton cabin to -- to figure out what it is you both expect from this relationship.

Chloe: Thank you, Maggie. You really do care about Lucas, don't you?

Maggie: You bet I do. And you. Lucas -- he's been through so much in his life. I mean, he deserves some peace and happiness. And, you know, I really hate this, but I got to be going. I promised Alice I'd stop by for tea. [Chuckles]

Chloe: Thanks for everything. I really appreciate it.

Maggie: You're most welcome, Chloe. Tell -- tell Lucas I said hello.

Chloe: I will.

Maggie: Bye-bye.

Chloe: Bye.

Nicole: Was that Maggie Horton you were just talking to?

Chloe: Yes. I asked her to meet me here. She had something to give Lucas.

Nicole: Well, we know it wasn't booze.

Chloe: What's your excuse?

Nicole: For being at the park? I thought I'd take Pookie for a walk.

Chloe: Well, did you lose her?

Nicole: No. She's with her bonded, certified, and insured dog walker. I don't poopy-scoop. So, what were you and Maggie talking about? Lucas, right?

Chloe: Maybe.

Nicole: Maybe? Come on. We're best buds now, right?

Chloe: No.

Nicole: Okay. Well, share anyway. I would love to hear what Maggie had to say.

Chloe: [Sighs] She was giving me relationship advice.

Nicole: Oh, you poor thing. Come on.

Chloe: What? Where are we going?

Nicole: To the pub for a drink. I'm sure you could use one by now.

Lucas: Sami.

Sami: Lucas.

Lucas: Where's Allie?

Sami: Home with Johnny.

Lucas: The housekeeper's watching them?

Sami: Please don't start with me.

[Cellphone rings]

Mickey: Hello?

Sami: Is that about our case?

Mickey: All right, I'll tell him. Thanks. That was Maggie. Lucas, Maggie gave Chloe the keys to the boat you need to get over to the cabin. You and Chloe can stay there as long as you like.

Sami: You're going to the Horton cabin?

Lucas: Yeah, not that it's any of your business, but yeah.

Sami: With Chloe? I don't believe this.

Kate: I don't, either.

Mickey: Kate, can I talk to you for a moment? There's something I need to discuss with you. It's about your company.

Kate: Okay.

Sami: I can't believe that you're taking Chloe to the Horton cabin.

Lucas: Why don't we just drop it, all right?

Sami: How long have you been seeing her -- for what, a couple weeks?

Lucas: I said drop it.

Sami: Don't you think it's a little bit early to be, like, shacking up with her?

Lucas: You know what? This conversation is over.

Sami: Don't walk away from me. If you get visitation, and that is a big if, I don't want Allie anywhere near Chloe.

Lucas: That's too bad.

Sami: Look, Lucas, come on. You know what she did to Brady, what she did to your brother Philip. I just don't want that kind of person around our daughter. She's not a good role model.

Lucas: And you are?

Sami: I'm her mother.

Lucas: And Chloe will be her stepmother someday. Listen to me. I care about her. I don't know what's gonna happen in the future, but you know what? I want her to be a part of my life. That means she's gonna be a part of Allie's life, so it's time that you get used to that.

Nicole: Wow. It looks like Lucas already signed you up for mommy duty. Do they make poopy-scoops for babies?

Dr. Carrington: Well, first off, I'd like to thank you both for agreeing to meet me in Dr. Evans' office. The plumber assured me that my office will be ready in time for next week's session. I'm sensing a lot of tension between the two of you. Care to tell me why?

Lexie: My husband doesn't trust me. He thinks I'm having an affair.

Dr. Carrington: Abe, is this an accurate statement of how you feel?

Abe: Yeah.

Dr. Carrington: Trust is obviously an important component in any successful relationship. Now, we've talked about Lexie's infidelities in previous sessions, but I do think it's time we address this issue now.

Nicole: You're awfully quiet.

Chloe: Am I?

Nicole: You still thinking about what Lucas said earlier?

Chloe: Yeah.

Nicole: I wouldn't worry about it, Chloe. I was step mom to his son, Will. It wasn't that big of a deal.

Chloe: Yeah, but you guys were married. Lucas and I are just dating.

Nicole: I hate to break it to you, Chloe, but when you date a man with a kid, the rules of the game change.

Chloe: I'm beginning to realize that. What if I'm not ready to be a mother to Allie?

Nicole: Then you've got a problem.

Chloe: I just feel like everything's happening so fast. I mean, Lucas and I -- we're just getting to know each other.

Nicole: Do you care about him?

Chloe: Yeah, I do.

Nicole: Then talk to him, Chloe. Tell him your concerns.

Chloe: What, I'm just supposed to tell Lucas that I'm not ready to be a part of his child's life?

Nicole: If that's how you feel, yes.

Chloe: [Sighs] I don't know if I can do that, Nicole.

Nicole: Why not?

Chloe: 'Cause... then I would force Lucas to choose between me and Allie, and I don't want to lose him.

Mickey: I've had a chance to review the plans to expand hearth and home.

Kate: And?

Mickey: Well, they're very impressive.

Kate: Thank you. But are they doable within the bylaws of the corporation?

Mickey: There are a few things we need to clarify, but in the short answer, yes. And I'd like your permission to go ahead and consult with a friend of mine who's experienced in mergers and acquisitions. He's a good man -- definitely discreet. He's someone we want on our side when you decide to move forward with your plans.

Kate: Okay, that's fine with me. [Coughing]

Mickey: Kate. Kate, are you all right?

Kate: Yes, I am fine. I'm getting a chest cold, I think. [Coughs]

Lucas: You know, I really don't want to fight with you.

Sami: Good, 'cause I don't want to fight with you, either. I just want to talk about our daughter's future.

Lucas: It's not what this is about. It's about your hatred for Chloe.

Sami: Oh. Oh, hey, any word from the judge?

Daniel: Chelsea left for France?

Hope: We just left her off at the airport.

Daniel: I had no idea.

Hope: But you do know why she's upset?

Daniel: Well, obviously, she didn't tell you.

Hope: No. She said something about wanting to see Max and Stephanie and helping them. But, clearly, it was more than that. She was upset -- really upset... enough to leave the country. What did you do to her?

Dr. Carrington: Abe, you said in one of our previous sessions that one of the worst days of your life was when you found out that Lexie was having an affair.

Abe: Yeah. It was. Then after that, I shut down. Took me a long time before I could trust my wife again. But I did. And now...

Dr. Carrington: So, what happened to make you suddenly doubt Lexie?

Lexie: He saw me hugging another doctor.

Abe: Wait, wait, wait. It wasn't just that. You have been distant for months. And, yes, I have noticed how close you and Dr. Jonas have become.

Lexie: Daniel and I are friends. It was an innocent hug.

Dr. Carrington: Okay, so, look -- you both have brought up important issues here. But what I'd like to do is focus on what I believe is at the heart of this current crisis... and that's Lexie's past infidelities.

Lexie: Why are we talking about this?! I've lost my little boy, and all we can talk about are the affairs I've had?

Dr. Carrington: Lexie, what do you mean you've lost your little boy?

Lexie: Forget it.

Abe: That's exactly what I'm -- you won't talk to me.

Lexie: I had the most wonderful daydream. Theo and I were in the park, playing in the park in the little sandbox, and he had a toy, and he was showing me how to use the toy. And we were laughing and talking, and we just -- just doing all the things that I've seen mothers do countless times with their children. And then the dream was over. And all I could think was, "why can't my little boy be like everybody else? Why -- why -- why does he have to have autism? Why did this have to happen to him? Why?"

Lucas: How many drinks have you two had?

Chloe: [Chuckles]

Nicole: Enough to get Chloe thinking we're best friends.

Chloe: I'm not that drunk yet.

Nicole: Well, then, I should get us another round. Pete! Pete!

Lucas: Actually, I'd like to talk to Chloe.

Nicole: Oh. Well, pull up a chair and join us.

Lucas: Alone.

Nicole: Oh. Is that code for "Nicole, get lost"?

Lucas: Mm-hmm.

Nicole: [Clicks tongue] Okay. I'm going.

Lucas: Thank you.

Nicole: You're welcome. If you need me, call me.

Chloe: I will.

Lucas: Guess she was telling the truth. You two are friends now.

Chloe: Well, I wouldn't say friends yet, but we're definitely not enemies anymore. Mm, hold on. From Maggie.

Lucas: Ah, thank you. Looks like they're gonna decide on the custody of Allie any minute, so I hope it's me. That way all three of us can head to the cabin tonight.

Chloe: Uh, there's something that I need to tell you.

Lucas: What? What is it?

Chloe: I'm not going with you to the cabin.

E.J.: Pete, sorry. When you have a second, could I get a coffee, please?

Pete: Sure.

E.J.: Thank you. Hey.

Nicole: You should change your drink order. Pete makes a mean martini.

E.J.: It's a little early for a martini for me.

Nicole: It's 5:00 somewhere.

E.J.: [Chuckles] I'm sure it is.

Nicole: So, are we gonna talk about it? Or would you like to continue discussing my drink preference?

E.J.: I'm sorry. I have absolutely no idea what you're referring to.

Nicole: You know...exactly what I'm talking about.

E.J.: Yeah, you're right. I do.

Nicole: Well?

E.J.: Well, what?

Nicole: Did you mean it?

E.J.: When I said I couldn't get you out of my system? Yes.

Nicole: Then why try?

E.J.: Because it's complicated.

Nicole: You're just making excuses.

E.J.: I'm not making excuses. But Samantha is an important part of my life. She's the mother of my child.

Nicole: Look, E.J., I like you a lot. And I think we could be really good together. But I'm losing my patience, so you better figure out what you want, and you better do it sooner rather than later.

Nicole: Pete?

Pete: Another martini?

Nicole: Please.

Pete: Coming up.

Dr. Carrington: Why don't we stop here today? I'll leave you two alone so you can talk.

Abe: Thank you. Thank you, doctor. Sweetheart, come here.

Lexie: I'm sorry.

Abe: I'm sorry, too. It's just all the tension.

Lexie: Yeah, I know.

Abe: Well, thank you for being honest about your feelings.

Lexie: God, I'm just a -- I'm a horrible mother, Abe.

Abe: No, you're a wonderful mother. Look, I am -- I am so sorry if I've done something to make you feel otherwise. You just want what's best for Theo. We both do.

Lexie: I just feel so helpless.

Abe: I know how you feel. We're both looking for answers. Why? Why? What's the reason this happened to us? There just aren't any.

Lexie: I just wish that I knew that everything was going to be okay.

Abe: So do I. You know, we just to do what's best for Theo... what's best for each other. And we just have to pray that's good enough. Come here.

Daniel: I'm afraid I can't tell you. It's personal. If Chelsea wanted you to know, she would have told you.

Hope: You're not doing yourself any favors, Daniel -- not with me and certainly not with Bo.

Daniel: Well, I'm sorry, but this is between me and Chelsea. And to be honest, you and Bo -- you're gonna think what you want to think.

Hope: Listen, if there's something I need to know or something Bo and I can do to help, I'd appreciate it if you'd tell me.

Daniel: Look, I know you care about Chelsea, and I hope you still believe that I do, too, because I do. What happened is regrettable, but it is something that we're gonna have to work through by ourselves.

Hope: You think you will?

Daniel: I tried. Chelsea left. Next move is up to her. Now if you'll excuse me...

Sami: What is taking the judge so long to decide?

E.J.: Well, there are a lot of things that need to be taken into consideration.

Sami: E.J., listen, I'm -- I'm sorry for snapping at you before.

E.J.: No, there's no need to apologize. I know that you're just worried about what's happening with Allie.

Sami: That is no excuse for my behavior. I really want you to know that I appreciate everything you've done, okay?

E.J.: Sure.

Chloe: Lucas, I'm not going with you to the cabin because I think you should spend this time alone with Allie.

Lucas: It's not about what my Mom said earlier?

Chloe: You know I don't care what Kate thinks.

Lucas: Then what is it?

Chloe: I honestly believe that my staying here is the best thing for your daughter. I know it's kind of a touchy subject, but the truth is you've been gone more than you've been around, and Allie really deserves this time alone with her father.

Lucas: I know. I know. You're right. I just hope the judge grants me custody.

Chloe: I do, too.

Lucas: No matter what happens today with the judge, no matter what they decide, I hope you know that I still want you in my life.

Mickey: Lucas.

Lucas: Yeah?

Mickey: The judge has decided to grant joint custody.

Sami: No. There is no way in hell I am agreeing to that.

Lexie: Family or not, Father's not just gonna sit back and let you take over his empire. You need to walk away now.

E.J.: I'm not gonna have you pulling any of these stunts around Johnny.

Sami: You're threatening me?

John: I don't want you seeing him.

Marlena: Are you jealous?
