Jen: She paid Chad to set up that hottiebaresall web site!

R.J.: You will get the other half when Vega is leaving town for good.

Natalie: So we'll work perfectly.

Ben: We seem to have a problem here.

Natalie: We do?

Troy: If my being here is going to harm you in any way, then I'll leave.

Ben: Did you think you were just going to slip out of here and nobody would notice?

Natalie: I don't understand. I mean, I was going over to the carriage house, work on some more of that stuff, and --

Ben: Yeah, well, what would this work entail, Natalie?

Natalie: Are you angry with me?

Ben: You're not going anywhere, not with what you have in that purse.

Natalie: My purse?

Jessica: Hey, guys. They wouldn't let us in to see al, but we're going to go back tomorrow. Maybe after they take him out of the -- is everything ok?

Ben: Your friend here has been playing you, Jessica.

Jessica: She's been what? Playing me?

Ben: Actually, she's been playing all of us. Come on, Natalie, you want to tell Jessica what you've been up to, or do you want me to do it?

Sam's voice: "Nora, call me the second you get in. It's about Troy MacIver."

Nora: Matthew? Matthew, sweetie, are you all right? Matthew?

Troy: Ok, Nora --

Nora: Matthew?

Troy: Nora, let me take a look at him.

Nora: No. You stay away from my son. Don't you touch him.

Troy: Nora, I am not Colin. I am not Colin. I am a doctor. Now, you need to calm down and you need to trust me. I can help you.

Melanie: Hey, Commissioner. Looks like we're both working late again. Why don't we make some plans for the weekend, something fun and sexy.

[Melanie giggles]

Melanie: Love you.

Melanie: Hmm. Yes. I can think of some very good plans.

Jen: Aunt Lanie.

Melanie: Hi. Jen.

Jen: Hi.

Melanie: What are you doing here?

Jen: I just came to visit a friend. He crashed his motorcycle.

Melanie: Oh.

Jen: But I think he's going to be ok.

Melanie: Oh. That's good.

Jen: Yeah. So I just came to say hey.

Melanie: Hey.

Jen: You working late?

Melanie: Yeah. Lucky me.

Jen: I'm just waiting for Cristian. He should be back pretty soon.

Melanie: Oh. So, things with you and Cristian are still --

Jen: Definitely.

Melanie: Good.

Jen: I really think he's the one.

Melanie: Oh. That couldn't make me happier. So I guess Lindsay backed off, huh?

Jen: Not really. She's doing just about everything she can think of to do to ruin things for us.

Melanie: Still?

Jen: You don't even want to know the rotten things she's done. But I thought you should know, I'm not talking to her ever again.

Melanie: Oh. Wow.

Jen: How long is it going to take her to realize that she can't break us up?

R.J.: Oh!

Lindsay: You do realize that Cristian and Jen will be leaving for Cape May any minute now.

R.J.: You know, thanks for dropping by unannounced, as usual.

Lindsay: You promised me that you were going to do something to break them up.

R.J.: Lindsay, you should try to remember that patience is a virtue. Oh, wait, now I've said "virtue" and "Lindsay" in the same sentence.

Lindsay: Yeah, and since when are you patient with someone that's been working undercover with the cops to ruin you?

R.J.: That boy will get what's coming to him.

Lindsay: When?

R.J.: You know, I have no intention of holding your hand and reassuring you tonight.

Lindsay: Ok. Fine. By the way, you never did say exactly what it is you're planning on doing to him.

R.J.: I'm not going to do anything to him. I have people to do that for me. Bye, now.

Troy: Here's what I need you to do -- I want you to place both hands right here.

Nora: What, on the shoulder like that? Ok.

Troy: Firmly right there.

Nora: Ok. Oh, God, hard?

Troy: Now, Matthew, I want you to do me a favor. I want you to be brave for me, ok? It's going to hurt for a second, but then it's going to be fine.

[Matthew whines]

Nora: All right, Sweetie, don't cry. It's ok. He's a doctor, Sweetie. He's going to make you feel better.

Troy: Ok.

[Matthew moans loudly]

Troy: Ok. Ok.

Nora: Is that it? Is it better?

Troy: That feel better?

Nora: Does it hurt anymore, Sweetie? No? That's it.

Troy: How does that feel, Matthew? Does that hurt?

Nora: No?

Troy: Good. I want you to do me a favor, ok? I want you to move your legs for me. Can you do that? Good. Good, good. Ok, now grab my hands and I want you to squeeze as hard as you -- oh, ok.

Nora: That's good.

Troy: Good job. Good job. One more favor, ok, because I forgot. Can you tell me your mommy's name?

Matthew: Her name's Nora.

Nora: Well, you shouldn't get up, Sweetie. I guess he's fine.

Troy: Yeah, obviously, his neck's ok, nothing's broken. Ok, buddy. I'm going to call the E.R. And alert them that we're coming in. He's going to need a head C.T. Since he was unconscious. He's going to be fine.

Nora: Thank you very much.

Matthew: I'm sorry I didn't hold on, Mommy.

Nora: Oh, Sweetie, let's talk about that later. Right now I just want to hold you and love you because I do. I just love you so much.

Matthew: Doctor man is nice.

Nora: Yeah.

Sam: Beautiful and rare, just like you, Nora.

Lindsay: Oh, isn't that nice. Kind of reminds me of high school decorating the gym.

Sam: Oh, Lindsay, what are you doing here?

Lindsay: I saw your car and decided to stop by. But Nora as homecoming queen -- that's hard to imagine.

Sam: Well, you can take the sarcasm and don't let it hit your you know where on your way out the door.

Lindsay: We have to talk, Sam.

Sam: I have nothing to say to you.

Lindsay: Oh, yes, you do. We've got to talk about Jen.

Sam: Oh, you mean how you interfered in her life so much you made her absolutely miserable?

Lindsay: That was not my intention.

Sam: Or maybe you'd like to discuss the sleazy details of how you tried to ruin Cristian's life and as a reward your daughter cut you out of hers, hmm? Quite a success story, Lindsay. Maybe you could write a book on what not to do.

Lindsay: How could you be so cold when you know how sorry that I am?

Sam: Oh, gee, I see. You've come to give the speech about how awful you've been and how you want to change, complete with a tearful apology. You know what you can do? You can leave it on my machine next time. Ok?

Lindsay: Ok, if I thought that I could get Jen to break it off with that loser, I would do the same things all over again.

Sam: Yeah. I bet you would.

Lindsay: Jen's about to get her heart broken, and you don't care?

Sam: Why do you think that?

Lindsay: Because she's about to find out who he really is. That boy is headed for a fall; I guarantee it.

Sam: You guarantee it? What have you done now?

Melanie: Well, I'm sorry that you and your mother couldn't find a way.

Jen: Well, it's not my fault.

Melanie: I'm sure it isn't. I've known Lindsay a few years, remember? She just keeps pushing and pushing.

Jen: Well, she can stop pushing me. I don't want to deal with it anymore.

Melanie: I hear you. Well, maybe in a little time.

Jen: No. How am I supposed to forgive her for what she did? What if she tried to break up you and Bo?

Melanie: Well, actually, she tried before you came back from Switzerland.

Jen: But it didn't work, did it? Because you and Bo are solid, just like me and Cris are. Did you guys set a date yet?

Melanie: No. Not yet. But very soon. Possibly this weekend.

Jen: Good. That's so great. Cris and I are going to dance all night at your wedding.

Melanie: Does he know about that?

Jen: Not yet. I don't know where he is. Jessica said he was going to the bank. Maybe I should just meet him down there.

Melanie: Oh, well, you go ahead, but if you miss him, you just -- I'll be here.

Jen: Ok. Thanks.

Melanie: Ok.

Jen: See you later.

Melanie: Ok.

Keith: How you feeling, Amigo? You having a bad day? Well, consider this the first of many bad days if you don't listen up. See, I got a little message for you.

Cristian: I've got a message for you!

Natalie: I'm -- I'm not. Mr. Davidson --

Ben: Come on, Natalie, don't make me do this. You must know that lies aren't going to work anymore.

Jessica: Ok, will somebody please tell me what's going on?

Ben: Nothing to say, Natalie?

Seth: Mr. Davidson, why are you so angry with Natalie?

Ben: Ok, fine. I'll start at the beginning. First, I caught her in our bedroom upstairs.

Jessica: What were you doing in their bedroom?

Natalie: I already explained that --

Ben: Oh, right, the stamp story. She was in our bedroom looking for stamps.

Jessica: Were you looking for stamps?

Ben: Of course she wasn't, but she even had me fooled. I even felt sorry for her. I gave her a cell phone so her and your mother could stay in touch whenever they needed to be.

Natalie: And I thanked you for that, and, I mean, you have been so nice to me --

Ben: Yes, yes, Natalie, we've all been so nice to you -- Jessica, Viki, and myself -- and this is how you repay us?

Jessica: Ok, wait. Tell me, what did she do?

Ben: After she left the room, I noticed a drawer was open, a drawer that is always locked.

Natalie: I didn't open it.

Ben: And I also noticed that a key I keep for the drawer under a lamp was missing, but what I didn't notice was a diamond emerald bracelet that I gave Viki for her birthday. All right? That -- it was in there last time I looked.

Jessica: No, no, Ben, it's not what it looks like.

Natalie: I didn't steal her bracelet.

Ben: Look, no more lies, ok? You've been casing this place out since you started working here! Now, hand over the bracelet, Natalie, now!

Sam: So what did you do to Cristian, Lindsay?

Lindsay: I -- I didn't do anything.

Sam: They why did you say you guarantee he's going to take a fall? Huh?

Lindsay: All I meant was that -- get off the balloon. He's going to eventually prove me right and she is going to see what a lowlife it is that she's been involved with all this time.

Sam: He's not a lowlife.

Lindsay: Well, why can't she be involved with someone who at least has some prospects?

Sam: Oh, I'm not even going to go there with you. Good night, Lindsay.

Lindsay: Yeah, I wonder how you're going to feel when Cristian turns Jen against you because that's coming next, you know.

Sam: Lindsay, when are you going to face the fact that people turn against you because of the things you do?

Lindsay: Oh, I am so not in the mood for a lecture about my sins.

Sam: You know, think about it, Lindsay. Your entire family cuts you off, you ruin your relationship with Jen, your sister, with me --

Lindsay: I didn't not ruin our relationship. No, Nora did that from the very beginning.

Sam: Oh, here we go. Here we go!

Lindsay: Yes, you were moaning over the loss of Nora since the first day that we got married, and she is still trying to find ways to hurt me. You should have heard what she said to me when she found out that Jen wasn't speaking to me anymore.

Sam: Uh-huh.

Lindsay: I mean, she was positively gloating.

Sam: Nora has been out of town, Lindsay. She doesn't even know about that. I mean, but when she finds out -- wait a minute. Have you seen Nora? Lindsay, answer me. If you've seen her, you have to tell me.

Lindsay: Why? So you can run off with your first love instead of staying here and talking to the mother of your children?

Sam: Lindsay, answer me. Nora could be in danger.

Nurse: How about I show you some real neat stuff we've got in the other room?

Nora: Ooh. It's like Matthew's big adventure, isn't it? You can go there and then you can tell all your friends at school everything that happened, right?

Matthew: Ok.

Nora: Ok.

Troy: A head C.T., Standard neuro protocol, plus the other tests I've listed.

Nurse: Yes, Doctor.

Troy: Thank you.

Nora: I'll be right here, honey. Ok? Not going anywhere.

Troy: What a cute kid, huh?

Nora: Yeah.

Troy: Nora, I just have a couple questions for you.

Nora: Ok.

Troy: Has Matthew ever had any accidents like this before?

Nora: No. Uh-uh.

Troy: No. Never any bad falls?

Nora: No. I meant -- well, he's not a shrinking violet. He is a little boy. I mean, you know, at the end of the day, he does have a couple of new boo-boos to show me, but, you know -- I mean, nothing like this. This is, you know --

Troy: Has he ever complained of dizziness or headaches?

Nora: No.

Troy: Had any seizures?

Nora: No. Why are -- is something wrong? Because you're kind of starting to scare me a little bit.

Troy: Oh, no, no, no. It's just routine. Any time a child has an accident like this, we just want to make sure we get a good history.

Nora: Ok.

Troy: I'll be right back.

Nora: Ok.

Melanie: Nora.

Nora: Hi.

Melanie: Was that Matthew that they just brought in?

Nora: Oh, yeah. He dislocated his shoulder.

Melanie: Is he all right?

Nora: Well, yeah, he's fine, thank you.

Melanie: Well, how did it happen?

Nora: Oh, he was on the swings swinging a little high and he fell.

Melanie: Oh, you must have been terrified.

Nora: Oh, no, I was so calm, cool, and collected. Amazing mother. Actually, Troy was there when it happened, and he -- he, you know, fixed it immediately.

Nurse: Doctor, the tests you ordered aren't exactly routine. Do you suspect something?

Troy: Now, do me a favor. After you run those tests, make sure you give me those results personally, ok?

Nurse: Ok.

Troy: Thanks. Hey, little man. No more playing monkey in the treetops, ok? We don't want to give Mommy any more scares, now, do we?

Matthew: No.

Troy: No.

Troy's voice: My only agenda for coming here to Llanview was to try and make up for some of what my brother did. I'm not here to hurt anyone.

Nora: You already have, lots of people, including me, because you're a constant reminder of what Colin did. You know what? It's not your fault that you're his twin. It doesn't matter. You are his twin, and I have to sit here and look -- I have to see his face in the town that I live -- I -- how am I supposed to live with that?

Cristian: Who the hell are you? Huh? Why'd you come after me? Of all the so-called "complete" boxed dinners out there,

Cristian: I asked you a question! You said you had a message? What kind of message? Huh?

Jen: Cris! Oh, my God. Oh, my God. What happened? Oh, my god, you're bleeding. You've got to go upstairs to a doctor.

Cristian: No, no, I'm ok.

Jen: Why were you fighting?

Cristian: I was walking down here and some guy just jumped me. He hit me good, too.

Jen: Why? Why would he do that? Did he know you?

Cristian: I don't know, I don't know, but he had a ski mask on. I got a pretty good idea why he came after me.

Lindsay: Oh, I see. When anything in this world goes wrong, let's blame it on Lindsay. If Nora is in danger --

Sam: I ask you a question. Have you seen Nora?

Lindsay: It's got to be my fault. If Jen is about to have her heart broken, well, that's got to be my fault, too.

Sam: Will you please answer my question?

Lindsay: This is so typical of you, Sam, because the one person you should be thinking about right now is Jen. But, no, with you it's all Nora all the time.

Sam: Forget it. I'll find out myself.

Lindsay: When are you going to take time to think about Jen?

Sam: Oh, you can forget about the guilt trips, Lindsay. They lost their effectiveness a long time ago.

Lindsay: And when Cristian -- when he ruins her life, you're going to do what?

Sam: You know, I'm going to tell you this once and only once, so try to remember -- Cris and Jen are together. That's a fact. Another fact is I think they're great together. They have my blessing.

Lindsay: That's appalling!

Sam: And no matter what you do, you can't break them up. And you know what? I will never forgive you for the things you pulled to try to break them up.

Lindsay: What?

Sam: Yeah, and while I'm at it, I really don't appreciate the mind games you've been playing on me regarding Nora's return.

Lindsay: I quit reading minds in high school. I thought you understood that I talked to Nora when I told you how cruel she was to me.

Sam: Wait -- quiet! Quiet! Quiet! Quiet! She left me a message.

Lindsay: Oh, great. You know, I'd like to know how we got to this point. I really would.

Sam: All right. Time's up. Lindsay, I've got more important things to do than talk to you, and, yes, before you ask, Nora is more important.

Lindsay: Where are we going?

Sam: You're going anywhere you like. I'm going to the park to find Nora.

Nora: Sam, it's me, Nora. Matthew and I -- we were -- we were out, and I -- could you call me? I really need you to call me. It's important. Ok. Bye. Oh. There's nothing like trying to leave a cryptic message for someone so they don't worry that's only going to make them worry.

Melanie: Hmm. I know. It's always better to explain details to someone in person, right?

Nora: Yes. Oh, God. How long have they been in there?

Melanie: I know. I know how you feel. It's difficult to see him as a different person.

Nora: Matthew thinks he's great.

Melanie: Yeah, well, Colin's patients loved him, too. I mean, he was a very caring and devoted doctor, and, apparently, Troy is, too.

Nora: Is he?

Melanie: Well, it's not easy to work with him at the hospital. I mean, every time I see him, my stomach does back flips. I suppose it's even harder on you.

Nora: Oh, it's just this decision to stay in Llanview --

Melanie: I know, I know, but I guess he's here to stay, whether we like it or not, and there's nothing you can do about it. Excuse me.

Nora: Maybe there is.

Troy: We need to talk.

Nora: Yes, we do.

Jessica: Ben, Natalie's not a thief.

Seth: Maybe Mrs. Davidson took the bracelet with her.

Ben: No, she didn't take it with her. The clasp was broken.

Jessica: Ok, Ben, it's not what it looks like.

Ben: Open the purse, Natalie!

Jessica: No, Natalie, you don't have to open the purse. Ben, is this what you are talking about?

Ben: How -- how did you get this?

Jessica: Mom called and asked me to get it fixed. When she comes home, she wants to surprise you with a dinner, and she wanted to wear that.

Ben: So she -- oh, no.

Jessica: I'm sorry. I should have told you about it. I just didn't think you would notice. It was supposed to be a surprise. I'm sorry.

Ben: You're sorry? Natalie, I -- I don't know what to say. I -- I'm so sorry. I feel like such a fool right now.

Natalie: It's ok, Mr. Davidson.

Ben: No, no, no, it's not ok. I -- I don't know what I was thinking.

[Phone rings]

Ben: I just saw that opened drawer. I -- I said some terrible things. I really -- please accept my apology.

Natalie: Well, just so you know that I would never, ever steal from Mrs. Davidson, or anyone for that matter. I mean, you guys have been so incredibly nice to me. How could I even think of something like that?

Ben: I know, I know. I -- it's me. I just feel terrible. Please --

Jessica: Ben? Excuse me. It's Robin from the crossroads.

Ben: Ok, thank you. Listen, please accept my apology. I don't know what I was thinking. I'm so sorry. Hello, Robin. Yes.

Jessica: I've never seen him act that way.

Seth: Kind of weird, wasn't it?

Natalie: It was ok.

Jessica: No, it's not ok. That was downright mean. Will you guys wait here a second?

Seth: Sure.

Natalie: Tell him I'm cool with it. That was so close.

Seth: I know. I thought we were finished.

Natalie: You know, I didn't even know he was talking about her bracelet.

Seth: I don't know what he was talking about, but I knew we were in trouble.

Natalie: Yeah, some guy just thinks because I work for his wife he can treat me like dirt and say, "Oh, sorry"?

Jessica: It was kind of cool, though, how Jessica came to your defense, wasn't it?

Natalie: Don't even get me started on her. I mean, did you see the way she flipped that bracelet around like it was nothing?

Seth: Come on --

Natalie: I mean, it had to have been worth at least a quarter of a mil.

Seth: She did not.

Natalie: That Ben guy -- I mean, I thought I had him eating out of my hand, and then he just turns on me like that, says I'm stealing.

Seth: Were you stealing?

Sam: I said where is it?

Troy: Where's what?

Sam: You know damn well what.

Troy: Look, if you're talking about your money, you may want to count it again. It's all there.

Woman: Gentlemen, this is a hospital --

Sam: I'm not talking about money, and you know that.

Woman: Ok, why don't I just let you two settle it, huh? I'll be right here.

Troy: You belong in a psych ward.

Sam: There was a picture of Nora in here, and now it's gone.

Troy: Are you talking about this? It fell out of a wallet. I didn't have a chance to put it back in.

Sam: Funny. I think you wanted to keep it for yourself.

Troy: And why would I do that?

Sam: That's a very good question.

Sam: Hey, Nora. Hi. It's me. I got your call about going to the park, but I -- somehow I must have missed you. Call me as soon as you get this, will you, please? It's very important. Thanks. Oh, hey, George.

George: Evening, Mr. Rappaport.

Sam: How you doing?

George: Good. Your little boy ok?

Sam: What are you talking about?

George: I saw Ms. Buchanan a while ago with that MacIver fellow? And she was heading out of the park carrying the little boy like -- well -- maybe like he was hurt.

Sam: Matthew?

Nora: I'm not sure I know where to begin, Troy.

Troy: Well, then why don't you let me say what I have to say first. It's about Matthew. He's fine.

Nora: Good. I love good news.

Troy: He's a great kid.

Nora: Thank you.

Troy: And he's very proud of his mom.

Nora: Of me?

Troy: Oh, yeah. He knows that you helped reset his shoulder.

Nora: Oh, I didn't do anything.

Troy: Well, somebody did because I couldn't have done it alone. I'll tell you what, why don't you go in and say hi to him, and I am going to write his discharge order, and then you'll be able to take him home shortly.

Nora: Ok. Thank you very much.

Troy: It was my pleasure.

Nora: Ok. Excuse me. I'm looking for Matthew Rappaport. He's my son. You're not Matthew Rappaport, right? No, now. Are you sure? I don't see how that's possible because this morning my son was this high.

Matthew: I'm sitting on a table, mommy.

Nora: You're right! That's it! That's the difference. You are my Matthew. Hey, sweetie pie. Now, listen, you, you big boy, you. I'm going to be able to take you home pretty soon, and when I do, after I stop hugging you to pieces and after you finish the ice cream that you're allowed to have and anything else that you want, you and I are going to sit down and have a little talk.

Matthew: Because I was bad?

Nora: Oh, Sweetie. No. Because when Mommy asks you to do something or tells you not to do something like swing too high on the swing sets, it's really important that you listen to me, right? Other than that, you're going to drive your mommy crazy.

Matthew: Can Troy be my doctor?

Nora: Troy -- I -- don't -- well, no. I mean, boys and girls have special doctors, sweetie, and -- I mean, so -- no. I mean, it's not -- it's just not up to me. Or maybe it is. I love you. You wait right here, ok? I'll be right back. Excuse me. I'm just going to be a minute. Don't go anywhere. Melanie, have you seen Troy? Do you know where he is?

Melanie: He just left the hospital. I'm not sure where he went.

Cristian: This is what he hit me with.

Jen: Cris, he could have killed you. You've got to go see a doctor right now.

Cristian: Jen, I'm ok.

Jen: What are you talking -- you don't know that. He hit over the head with a pipe.

Cristian: I'm fine. Really, I'm cool.

Jen: You said you know why he came after you. Did he tell you?

Cristian: No. No. He was throwing out all kinds of trash talk, but I know he was after my money.

Jen: Because he saw you with all that cash?

Cristian: Trip money, yeah. Yeah, he must have seen me take my wallet out upstairs.

Jen: He was there, he saw us.

Cristian: Yeah, had to be that. And he probably saw me headed this way, took off before me, got here, and --

Jen: I don't even remember seeing anybody. Did he get your wallet?

Cristian: No. No. He thought he had me, but I think I got him by surprise. I'm going to have to call the cops.

Jen: Ok, you can do that, but right after you go upstairs and see a doctor.

Cristian: Jen, I'm ok. Really.

Jen: No, you're not. Look, you're cut. You're cut. And you're bleeding.

Cristian: No, it's ok. Look, it's not even bleeding anymore. It stopped. See? I'm fine.

Jen: What's so funny?

Cristian: I can't wait to see his face when he takes off that ski mask.

R.J.: Well, Keith! You're right on time! I'm assuming that Cristian is on his way out of town.

Keith: Not yet. His damn girlfriend showed up and saved him!

R.J.: Well, it looks like she saved you.

Keith: Don't screw with me, Gannon!

R.J.: Look, I was told that you could handle this. Apparently, I was misinformed.

Keith: I will finish the job, all right?

R.J.: I think I need someone else. This is very important --

Keith: Listen to me. Vega is mine. I told you I would take care of him, and I will.

Ben: Yeah, that's fine. We'll just take the shipment tomorrow, ok? Thanks, Robin. Ok, I'm ready.

Jessica: What happened?

Ben: I don't know. I saw an empty drawer.

Jessica: Ben, Natalie is my friend, ok? She's really happy to be working for my mother. She would never steal anything.

Ben: I know, I know. I just -- the bracelet was missing, she was acting suspicious, and -- and I jumped to the wrong conclusion.

Jessica: Well, it was partially my fault, too. I mean, I should have locked the drawer again. I just didn't think you'd see it, and I certainly didn't think you'd react that way.

Ben: Ok, I'll apologize to her again if you think that'll help.

Jessica: No. No. I just will be surprised if she ever talks to me again.

Ben: I don't just know what it is. You know, it's one minute she's, like, this sweet, hard-working girl, the next minute, there's something off about her.

Jessica: What has she ever done?

Ben: She's done nothing. It's me. I'm paranoid. I mean, this whole thing. Your mother and I just dealt with Gina Russo, and now we got Allison Perkins coming around. I guess I'm just on edge.

Jessica: Ok. All right. Let's drop it. But please remember that Natalie is my friend and I trust her. I trust with anything in this house.

Natalie: Did I steal something from up there? Man, did I. I have gotten exactly what we need. There'll be no stopping us now.

Sam: Nora!

Nora: Hi. Hi.

Sam: Where's Matthew?

Nora: He's in there. He's fine. He's fine, really. Everything's ok, thankfully, you know?

Sam: Did MacIver do it?

Nora: Do what?

Sam: Hurt Matthew? I talked to a cop who said that he was there.

Nora: No, Sam. Calm down, relax. Matthew's fine. Didn't you get my message to meet Matthew and I in the park?

Sam: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I got it, but I got it way too late.

Nora: Ok, well, Matthew was swinging on a swing, and he got a little rambunctious, swung too high, and he fell. And Troy happened to be there, and he tended to him right there on the spot, and everything's fine. But he suggested that we come here and get some cat scans because he was passed out.

Sam: Why didn't you call me, Nora? Why didn't you call me?

Nora: Have you checked your messages recently?

Sam: No.

Nora: Ok.

Sam: Ok. So, ok. Everything's all right?

Nora: Yeah. You can let your blood pressure drop about 100 points. The CAT scan was normal, Sam.

Sam: Ok. What was MacIver doing in the park? Was he following you?

Nora: Wow. He's right. You really are suspicious.

Sam: Well, you bet I am, ever since he made his sudden decision to stay here in Llanview.

Nora: Which, by the way, why didn't you tell me that when I was in Chicago?

Sam: Have you checked your messages lately?

Nora: Oh.

Sam: I didn't want to worry you on your vacation. But I called you earlier to tell you to call me as soon as you got in, and then I left a message at your house, you know, warning you to be on the lookout.

Nora: Thank you. I should have known that you'd try to run interference.

Sam: Yeah, well, I wish I could have run something else right through that guy.

Nora: Ok, Sam, you know what's really important for you to remember? Matthew was hurt, Troy was there, and he was a godsend.

Sam: So what? I mean, everybody said that Colin was a great doctor, but that didn't stop him when it came to you, Nora. Now, Troy is playing games, just like his brother.

Nora: Sam --

Sam: I mean, starting with this decision --

Nora: Ok, you know what? I have been traveling all day, I'm stressed out about Matthew, and I really don't want to argue with you about this.

Sam: You're right. You're right. We can talk about MacIver some other time. I'm going to go in and see Matthew now.

Nora: Ok. Hey, don't blow a gasket when he tells you that he thinks Troy's great, ok? Good to see you.

Troy: Dr. MacIver.

Nora: Doctor? It's Nora Buchanan.

Troy: Nora. Hey.

Nora: I didn't get a chance to thank you for everything you did for Matthew when you were here at the hospital.

Troy: Oh, please. I'm just glad that everything turned out ok.

Nora: Me, too.

Troy: Well, I do appreciate the call, Nora. Thank you.

Nora: Well, there is one other thing that I wanted to talk to you about. You left me with quite a decision to make. You said that you would leave town if I asked you to?

Troy: That's right, I did.

Nora: Well, I've made that decision. I don't think it's fair. I don't think I can ask you to do that.

Troy: I guess I'm staying.

Nora: I guess I'll then see you around from time to time.

Troy: I hope so, Nora. Good-bye.

Nora: Good-bye, Troy.

Jen: If you won't go see a doctor, at least let me clean you up a little bit. You must be hurting everywhere.

Cristian: No, not everywhere. Not here.

R.J.: Are you sure you can handle Vega?

Keith: I told you his girlfriend showed up, ruined it, that's it. Hey, trust me. The next time he'll be begging to get out of town.

[Phone rings]

R.J.: Hmm. Yes.

Lindsay: R.J., it's been one of those days, so give me some good news. Tell me that Cristian is out of my daughter's life.

R.J.: Look, I told you. My people are handling it.

Lindsay: Ok, but that just means that they're getting him out of town, right?

R.J.: Isn't that enough?

Lindsay: I told you that I don't want him to be hurt, and I meant it.

R.J.: Just relax, ok? I told you. My people are just going to do a little convincing. That's all.

Keith: Punk thinks he can play me for a fool? Nobody plays me for a fool, Cristian Vega. You're a dead man.

R.J.: I just don't want to have to see him anymore.

Keith: And I told you I've got it covered.
