Brad: Answer me, Jack. How can you justify trying to take Dianeís child away from her?

Jack: He's my child, too. Or had you forgotten that?

Brad: I'm not saying you don't have a right to be with the kid.

Jack: Oh, well, thank you very much.

Brad: Look, we all know Diane has made some mistakes. But from what I understand, when she stole that sperm, you were not the target.

Jack: So what now, you're an expert on the situation?

Brad: Last time I spoke to her, she had no clue as to who the father was.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa -- what are you doing talking to Diane?

Brad: She came to me for some help a while back.

Jack: Is that so?

Brad: She felt that Nikki might be up to something, figured I could pry it out of her.

Jack: And what? You're such a good friend, you agreed to help?

Brad: No, I refused. Told her she was overreacting, that no one was trying to take her child away from her. But apparently, I was wrong. Wasn't I, Jacko?

Diane: Oh, Gina, you were right. What an adorable little boy!

Gina: Well, you'll get no argument from me.

Diane: Look at that face. What a little heartbreaker.

Gina: Just like Danny.

Diane: Phyllis? Gina and I were just looking at pictures of her nephew, Daniel. Have you seen him? Oh, that's right. How silly of me. He's your son.

Phyllis: How stupid do you think I am?

Diane: Well, I gotta run, Gina. Thanks. Bye, Phyllis.

Gina: Bye, Diane.

Phyllis: What the hell was that about?

Gina: I just happened to be showing her some photographs of Daniel.

Phyllis: You were showing Diane Jenkins photos of my son?

Gina: We were having a conversation about how cute her little son is. And I just wanted to show off my nephew. Do you have a problem with that?

Phyllis: Yeah, you know what, I do have a problem with that, Gina. I have a huge problem with that.

Gina: Well, do me a favor. Take it someplace else. I have important customers to take care of.

Ashley: Well, hello there.

Victor: Well, hello to you, too.

Ashley: Aren't you taking your life in your hands -- showing up in the hallowed halls of your archenemy?

Victor: I never think of you that way. [Chuckles]

Ashley: Well, I didn't mean me. Is that why you're here?

Victor: You've been on my mind.

Ashley: Why's that?

Victor: At Malcolmís funeral, you didn't seem yourself.

Ashley: You and I didn't even speak to each other that day.

Victor: I was watching you. Something seemed to weigh on your mind, other than the sadness of the day.

Ashley: You know, it's scary sometimes how well you can read me.

Jill: [Screams] Oh, my God! What in the name of God are you trying to do?

Sean: Just what I was about to ask you.

Jill: What?

Sean: These.

Jill: Oh. Why are you here? You're not supposed to be home at this time of day.

Sean: I left something upstairs. What's your excuse?

Jill: I was just -- exercising.

Sean: I thought we were supposed to exercise together.

Jill: Uh, yeah. That was the original plan.

Sean: Oh, I didn't know it had changed. Since when have you been sneaking in those sessions in on the side?

Jill: Sean, I have a few years on you, okay? I am going to catch up with you if it kills me.

Sean: You want to leave me in your dust, huh? I was planning on making this a quick trip, but on second thought, seeing you there all sweaty and breathless --

Jill: Are you going to hit the treadmill?

Sean: Not exactly what I had in mind.

Jill: Oh, no, no -- no, no, no. I have to go back to the office.

Sean: The office can wait.

Jill: Oh, baby, no! No, we -- what're you doing?

Sean: Getting my exercise.

Jill: Stop it! Sean!

Sean: Be quiet.

Jill: Don't drop me!

Sean: I'm gonna hurt you.

Jill: That's what I love about you.

Amanda: I know you're frightened, sweetheart. I am, too.

Mackenzie: Mom, what if he's out there?

Amanda: We don't know it's Ralph.

Mackenzie: We don't know it isn't him, either.

[Knock at door]

Larry: Hey, Mac. Hey, Mandy. How's it going? Whoa, whoa, what's wrong?

Mackenzie: Remember what happened at the coffee house?

Larry: Yeah. This is about that creep?

Amanda: You told him?

Larry: Look, I helped Mac go after the guy. We went looking for him, but he got away.

Mackenzie: Look, the thing is, I remembered something when I went back to school. Remember that shirt I told you about?

Larry: Yeah, yeah. What about it?

Amanda: Ralph -- my husband -- used to wear the same shirt. It was orange plaid -- very distinctive.

Larry: So you think he's the one that's been following you? What kind of a creep is this guy?

Amanda: Larry, the point is we just have to find out whether Ralph is here or not, okay? That's all.

Larry: I'll tell you what -- if he shows his face, I'll make it really clear to him that he's not wanted or welcome around here.

Amanda: I appreciate that, but I don't want you getting into trouble, okay?

Mackenzie: I think we should call the police.

Amanda: You really think we should do that?

Mackenzie: Yes. He's out there, Mom.

Larry: I don't know, Mac. It sounds like a bad idea to me. I mean, you get the cops involved, things can kind of get out of hand, you know.

Amanda: Yeah, you mean, if it's not Ralph and the police try to investigate --

Larry: You never know. I mean, I'm sure they'd go, maybe look him up, let him know there's a woman back in Genoa City that's got concerns. And that would tip him off to where you are. I just -- I don't think it's a good idea.

Mackenzie: We can't do nothing. We have to figure out if it's him.

Larry: Maybe there's something else we can do. You said you lived with the guy until last year, when you moved from St. Louis, right?

Amanda: Yeah. So?

Larry: Well, do you have anyone back in your old hood that you could call, maybe get in touch with? You know, someone you could trust to find out what old Ralphie boy's been up to?

Amanda: Yeah. Yeah, I guess there is someone I might be able to call. Someone who could help.

Paul: Oh, come on, Charlie, give me a break. I've been up for like two days. I will stop by first thing in the morning and give you my statement. Listen, I gotta go. All right. Bye. May I help you?

Isabella: I know we've only been talking about the idea of getting married before the baby arrives, but just in case --

Paul: So you're checking my date book?

Isabella: I want to make sure there's no conflicts.

Paul: Well, as you can see, this weekend's booked.

Isabella: You've already made plans?

Paul: Well, I didn't know I might be attending a wedding.

Isabella: Well, you know what this means? It's only a few weekends left before the baby arrives.

Paul: Look, if we do decide to go through with this, you're not thinking about a big ceremony, are you?

Isabella: No, of course not. But I would like to go on a honeymoon.

Paul: Well, I doubt that's gonna happen.

Isabella: Why not?

Paul: You're the one that keeps reminding me the baby's on the way. I really doubt Dr. Thompson's going to let you leave town at this point in your pregnancy.

Isabella: Yeah, you're right. What would I do without you?

[Knock at door]

Lynne: Excuse me, boss.

Paul: Yes, Lynne.

Lynne: Mr. McCarroll's on line one.

Paul: All right. I'll have to take that.

Isabella: Another call?

Paul: Yeah, he's one of my best clients.

Isabella: How long are you gonna be?

Paul: I don't know. An hour.

Isabella: Okay. Well, we can finish this later.

Paul: All right, see you later. At home, maybe.

Isabella: Lynne.

Paul: Yes, Lynne?

Lynne: Never mind.

Paul: No, no, no. You have something on your mind. Say it.

Lynne: Why would you tell Isabella that you might be an hour when you know it'll only be a few minutes?

Paul: Yeah, Martin. What can I do for you? Yeah, I know. I was on a stakeout.

Victor: I can't believe what Iím hearing.

Ashley: That's how I felt when I found out. When I went in for that mammogram, the last thing I thought they'd find was a tumor.

Victor: Have you told your family about it?

Ashley: Actually, no. I'm telling them tonight.

Victor: This must be a terrible thing to go through alone.

Ashley: I haven't been alone. Brad's been incredible. He's been by my side every step of the way.

Victor: As well he should be. He is your husband.

Ashley: Why do I get this feeling?

Victor: What feeling?

Ashley: Maybe you're dealing with some issues of your own perhaps?

Victor: None that parallels what you're going through.

Ashley: But there is something going on with you.

Victor: We're talking about you.

Ashley: Which means that you're not gonna talk to me about it.

Jack: Bradley, stay out of this, okay? It's none of your business. I'm Kyleís father. I have rights.

Brad: It doesn't mean you have the right to tear him away from his mother.

Jack: Well, if you were in my shoes, you would do exactly the same thing, and you know it.

Brad: Come on, you're rationalizing.

Jack: It isn't like Diane is the victim here. What she did was criminal. She brought this on herself. Whether I was the target or not is not the point. Kyle is my son. That's what I'm focusing on right now.

Brad: You're sure about that? Look, despite the fact that Diane has made mistakes, she loves that little boy. And the thought of losing him is devastating for her. Besides, after what I've seen and heard, she's a pretty damn good mother, Jack. Look, isn't there a way that you can be involved in your son's life without totally cutting Diane out of the picture? Not just for her sake, Jack -- for Kyleís.

Jack: There are other factors involved.

Brad: What's more important than your son?

Jack: You know what? Back off! Stay out of this! I have been civil with you up to this point out of respect for my sister. You push this any further, Iím telling you --

Brad: And what, Jack? What? Are you threatening me?

Jack: I'm telling you to stay out of my life.

Brad: I can't do that. Not when there's an innocent child's welfare at stake.

Amanda: You're sure? Great. Thanks, Lyla. Yeah, you, too. Bye-bye.

Mackenzie: What did she say?

Amanda: Lyla's a friend of Ralphís and mine.

Mackenzie: Did she see him?

Amanda: She said she hasn't seen him since last summer and that he was heading out of town on his way to Tucson.

Larry: The question is, did he go?

Mackenzie: And even if he did, it doesn't mean he stayed there. Mom, we have to be sure.

Larry: Mandy, what kind of work did Ralph do?

Amanda: He worked in a factory making telephone equipment. Switchers and stuff.

Larry: Was he any kind of a foreman or anything?

Amanda: He was a team leader at his last job. He'd been doing that for years.

Larry: So if he did move to Tucson, he'd probably look for a gig like the last one.

Mackenzie: I get it. We can call and see if there's a factory like that there.

Larry: Yeah. Let me handle this one.

Marissa: No luck? Paul and Isabella are still the happy, expectant couple?

Lynne: You know, I don't know what's going on. Paul's acting really weird. It's almost like he's trying to get rid of her.

Marissa: Really? I wonder why.

Lauren: Hello, ladies.

Lynne: Hello, Lauren. If you're looking for Paul, he -- well, he was on the phone.

Lauren: Hmm.

Paul: Lynne, you want to send --

Lauren: Hey, stranger.

Paul: Hey, Lauren. What are you doing here?

Lauren: I came to see you. Do you have a few minutes?

Paul: Yeah, come on inside.

Lauren: Yeah, yeah.

Paul: You want to send Roger over to McCarroll and Associates.

Lynne: You got it, boss.

Paul: So, what brings you by?

Lauren: Actually, I wanted to know what happened with your mother.

Paul: Oh. Well, you were right. She ended up going to Australia and she told Chris everything. Including that Isabella is carrying my child. I swear to you, I have never been more furious with her in my entire life.

Lauren: Did you lay into her?

Paul: Did I ever.

Lauren: Did she listen?

Paul: She never has before.

Lauren: I know. I'm sorry. This is probably the last thing you need. With everything you've got going -- a baby coming, making things work with Isabella. What is it? Is there something else with your mother?

Paul: No, no. It's not my mother. It's Isabella.

Lauren: What about her?

Paul: You know, maybe Iím overreacting. I don't know. I suppose she does have a point.

Lauren: About?

Paul: This.

Lauren: Legal documents?

Paul: Yeah, it's official. The waiting period is over. My marriage to Chris is a thing of the past.

Lauren: And so now she thinks that it's time for you to move on with your life - with her.

[Knock at door]

Diane: Who is it?

Isabella: It's me, Diane.

Diane: Isabella.

Isabella: Hi.

Diane: What a pleasant surprise.

Isabella: Well, someone's in a chipper mood.

Diane: With good reason. The last time we got together, the messenger showed up with the judge's rulings on visitation.

Isabella: And being the caring mother you are, you took Kyle right over to see his father.

Diane: As fast as my little feet could carry me.

Isabella: So I take it the first visit went well?

Diane: Wonderfully. Not only is Jack bonding with our son, but it's getting under Phyllisís skin big time.

Isabella: So far, so good.

Diane: Of course, the hearings are coming up. There'll be a lot of character assassination going on.

Isabella: Oh, that's unfortunate. But I'm sure you can give as good as you get.

Diane: Still, I have to be careful.

Isabella: You don't want to attack Jack too hard.

Diane: No, it could turn him off.

Isabella: So what's your plan? You have to counter somehow.

Diane: Actually, I just fired a shot across Phyllisís bow. Gave her some idea of what she's in for.

Isabella: Really? Tell me more.

Diane: No. The last time we got together, we said that we'd talk about both of our lives. And from the look on your face, I take it things are going well for you, too?

Isabella: Well, let's just put it this way -- how would you like to be my matron of honor?

Diane: Wow!

Phyllis: Busy?

Jack: Yeah. Just wrapping up a few things.

Phyllis: What?

Jack: I thought you were gonna go straight to Brad and Ashleyís from Ginaís. Something happen with the food?

Phyllis: What food?

Jack: Honey, remember? You promised Ashley you would pick up the food she ordered from Ginaís.

Phyllis: Oh, right, right. I forgot.

Jack: Hey, what is it? What happened?

Phyllis: When I got to Ginaís, who did I see but Diane and Gina, like best friends.

Jack: So?

Phyllis: They were looking at pictures, Jack. That awful bitch Diane had pictures of my son in her hands. And that wasn't it. To make matters worse, she had to rub it in. She acted like she forgot that Daniel was my son! I had to get out of there. I couldn't take it. I mean, I had to get out of there.

Jack: It's okay, it's okay.

Jill: You are a bad, bad boy.

Sean: I thought you were heading back to the office?

Jill: Well, I am. I'm just trying to catch my breath here.

Sean: It's all the more reason to get into shape.

Jill: Mmm-hmm.

Sean: Hey, what's this? Course material? Etiquette 101?

Jill: Very funny.

Sean: How is our star pupil?

Jill: Oh, Larry Warton is an obnoxious pig, Sean.

Sean: Glad to see you're making significant headway.

Jill: No, I am serious. I was this close to throwing in the towel.

Sean: How come?

Jill: I gave him his first assignment. Told him to read "Sense and Sensibility."

Sean: By Jane Austen?

Jill: Yeah. He called it a "chick book."

Sean: But he agreed to try?

Jill: Only because he claims his girlfriend is an avid reader. I'm sure. Probably the tabloids. I will give him this, though. The man does seem sincere about improving himself.

Sean: Careful. Sounds like you're getting into this Pygmalion thing.

Jill: Only until I find out what Katherineís up to, okay, and what Larry has to do with it.

Sean: Mmm-hmm. I'm gonna go get some juice. Do you want anything?

Jill: No. I'm fine with the water. Thanks, baby.

Larry: Yeah, I was wondering if you could help me. I'm an old friend of Ralph Hunnicuttís. We used to live in St. Louis together. Right. Anyway, he's got a letter here at my house. I think it's from the bank. It might be a check or something. I was trying to get it to him. Does he still work there? Oh, cool. Look, you wouldn't happen to have an address for him, would you? I could just drop it in the mail. Great. Okay, fine. No, no, no. That's perfect. Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.

Mackenzie: He's there?

Larry: Not only is he there, he's been working on the floor all day.

Amanda: Oh, you hear that, sweetheart? So he was definitely not the person that you saw at the coffee house today. Oh, God.

Jack: I want to know what the hell Diane is doing with pictures of Daniel. I'm calling Gina.

Phyllis: No, no, no! Don't do that, please. I already talked to her.

Jack: And what did Gina say?

Phyllis: She said that they were talking about Kyle and that she wanted to show off Daniel. And so she pulled out some pictures.

Jack: Wait, wait, wait a second. Wait. Keep in mind Gina does not know we're going for custody. It could've been very innocent on her part.

Phyllis: I'm sure it was innocent on her part. But Diane was clearly sending a message. I'm telling you, they're going to rip me apart in that courtroom. They're gonna tell the world that I was an unfit mother.

Jack: Just because Diane is looking at pictures, honey --

Phyllis: What? Do you think it's a coincidence? Is that what you're telling me? No! It was intentional, Jack! What, do you think Iím imagining this? Do you think they're not going to throw this in my face?!

Jack: I know. We both know they're gonna bring this up. Only if we go for full custody. Sweetheart, I've told you before. I'm willing to consider partial custody. You told me to stay the course.

Phyllis: I know. I know what I told you. She was looking at pictures of my son! Who knows what Dianeís gonna do. I mean, maybe she'll talk to Gina and get Gina to call Danny and have him and Daniel testify against me. I have to walk into that courtroom and see my son.

Jack: Come here.

Phyllis: I swear, Jack, I canít. I couldn't bear it. I swear, it would kill me. [Sobbing]

Victor: I feel so helpless.

Ashley: Well, I think this is one time when you actually are.

Victor: You know I hate that feeling. [Laughs]

Ashley: Uh-huh.

Victor: Are you sure there's nothing I can do?

Ashley: I don't know what it would be.

Victor: Well, I could fly in some top specialists and make sure that the most recent treatment is available to you.

Ashley: I appreciate that, but I am already receiving state-of-the-art treatment. And my doctors are fabulous. I love you for wanting to help, but I'm in excellent hands.

Victor: Well, it never hurts to know that there are other hands out there willing to help.

Ashley: Oh, that's true. It doesn't hurt to know that.

Victor: You won't hesitate to ask now, will you?

Ashley: If I need something, I will not hesitate to ask. What is that about?

Victor: What?

Ashley: There's something's going on with you, Victor.

Victor: Yeah. I look at you and I think back on all that you and I have shared.

Ashley: Well, please don't make it sound like it's over.

Victor: It isnít. It's just a moment when I'm reminded. That's all.

Diane: Isabella, that's incredible! When's the big day?

Isabella: I'm not sure yet.

Diane: But you have set a date?

Isabella: Well, I just came from Paulís office, and I think we both agreed that marriage is the best way to go.

Diane: And so you said, why not do it sooner, rather than later?

Isabella: The baby is going to be here before we know it.

Diane: Isabella, I am so happy for you. Especially since the last time we got together, you said there was a little cloud on the horizon.

Isabella: Yes, the ex-wife. But actually, I have her to thank.

Diane: How so?

Isabella: When I was at Paulís office earlier, the divorce papers arrived, stating his six-month waiting period is over. So it is official. His marriage has ended.

Diane: And realizing he's a free man, he wanted to get married right away?

Isabella: I have to admit, it was my idea.

Diane: But he responded positively?

Isabella: More or less. I mean, it was difficult for him at first, dealing with the finality. And of course, I was sympathetic and caring.

Diane: When inside, your heart was screaming, "yes!"

Isabella: You know, but the best part is, in the past, something like this would've freaked Paul out.

Diane: Which in turn, would've freaked you out.

Isabella: But I don't feel that way anymore.

Diane: Why should you? You're carrying the man's child.

Isabella: Yeah. You know, I never thought this day would come. Christine is finally a thing of the past.

Diane: Well, as far as standing up for you, I'm there. You just tell me when.

Isabella: Thank you. You know, there's only one downside to getting married now.

Diane: What?

Isabella: No honeymoon.

Diane: Oh, right, it's too close to your due date.

Isabella: Yeah. I just think it's so important to get away right after the wedding. It kind of helps cement things.

Diane: Well, not to be a wet blanket, Isabella, but I wouldn't put too much stock in that.

Paul: So, when Isabella read the papers, she saw it as a sign that Iím a free man.

Lauren: She's not suggesting that you jump into another marriage with her? Oh, Paul --

Paul: Things have been going very well for us lately.

Lauren: So you've told me.

Paul: Then you realize that the idea isn't that far-fetched.

Lauren: Perhaps down the road, but not now.

Paul: There's a baby on the way.

Lauren: I understand that. But that doesn't mean that you have to just jump into this kind of commitment. Look, I'm all for parents being married when they have a baby, but this isn't the dark ages. If the baby comes and you're not married, it's not the end of the world.

Paul: You know, there's more to it. I told Isabella about my daughter, Heather, and how much I regretted not being a family with the two of them, April and Heather.

Lauren: But let's relive the course of that history, okay? I mean, you felt this way years later. You didn't want anything to do with April. She pressured you, and you caved into that pressure. And then look what happened. You were miserable. I'm not shooting down this marriage thing, okay? I just -- I would hate to see you jump into something you're not ready for.

Jack: I realize you and Danny have had your issues.

Phyllis: He took my son away from me.

Jack: Sweetheart, he is not going to testify against you.

Phyllis: How do you know that?

Jack: What, you think he's gonna come all the way over here from Europe for what? To do Diane a favor?

Phyllis: I don't know, maybe Gina could talk to Danny --

Jack: Sweetheart, we both know how close Gina and my father have become. I highly doubt she's gonna do anything to upset my family. Honey, I know you're under a lot of stress -- you need to slow down and think about this rationally. Nothing we have done yet is set in stone. We can always change our mind and go for shared custody --

Phyllis: Oh, yeah! And then I get Diane Jenkins in my life at all times!

Jack: Phyllis, what do you want from me?! I told you Iím willing to consider shared custody or full custody. What else can I do? And what the hell does that look mean? Wait a minute. You're not -- you're not actually asking me to step away from my son now? Phyllis?

Phyllis: I need to get some air.

Mackenzie: I was so scared it was Ralph at the coffee house earlier.

Amanda: Well, now we know it's not. Not if he was in Tucson all day. Still, there's something weird going on. I think you should tell Katherine.

Mackenzie: Why?

Amanda: Well she, maybe she could hire someone. You know, like a bodyguard, someone to keep an eye on you.

Mackenzie: Mom, I don't want to freak Grandma out. Especially if it's some loser at school pulling a prank.

Amanda: Yeah, well, Iím still concerned, sweetheart.

Mackenzie: I'll be careful. I promise.

Larry: Look, Mac. You let one of us know if you see anything strange, okay?

Mackenzie: You have my word. I should get back to school. I have a set to finish painting.

Amanda: Okay, well, Iíll going with you.

Mackenzie: Mom, that's not necessary.

Amanda: I insist.

Mackenzie: Okay. Of course, everyone'll think Iím totally bizarre now.

Larry: Well, now why do you say that?

Mackenzie: The way I ran out of there. Wait a minute, I forgot. I was going to talk to Ned. See if I could borrow the metal plate in the back for a prop. I'll only be a second.

Amanda: Okay, Iíll be here.

Mackenzie: Thanks, Larry.

Larry: Any time, any time. Look, um, Mandy, would you happen to have a picture of this Ralph dude?

Amanda: Why?

Larry: Well, even though we know he's in Tucson. Just in case, you never know. You know, better safe than sorry.

Amanda: Well, I --

Larry: You carry a picture of him in your purse?

Amanda: I forgot I even had it until you asked. I should've gotten rid of this thing a long time ago. Guess it's a good thing I didn't.

Ralph: Hi.

Jill: Hi, may I help you?

Ralph: Yeah, I understand youíre having trouble with your phone line.

Jill: No, I was just on it. It was fine. And to be honest with you, Iím on my way out.

Ralph: This shouldn't take long ma'am.

Jill: Okay, come in.

Ralph: Thank you.

Jill: The phone's over there.

Ralph: Great, thank you.

Sean: What's going on?

Jill: Oh, somebody from the phone company.

Sean: Oh, by the way. I was checking up on the Glow by Jabot kids earlier.

Jill: Were you able to confirm our cast?

Sean: So far we have Billy, J.T., Raul and Brittany.

Jill: Yes, no Mac.

Sean: Well, I haven't spoken to her. But everyone seems to think she'll pass -- since she and Billy are no longer an item.

Jill: Well, thank God. Now, if I could only get her and her grandmother out of this house.

Sean: Jill, come on.

Jill: Excuse me, are you through yet?

Ralph: Yes, ma'am. Everything's just fine. Thank you.

Jill: Thank you.

Ralph: I'd still like to check where the line comes into the house.

Jill: Fine.

Ralph: Okay, great.

Victor: You and I have some wonderful memories, don't we?

Ashley: Yes.

Victor: I remember when I first met you. You showed such natural proclivity for business. I wanted to be your mentor. And hone those natural skills

Ashley: So what do you think? Was your project a success?

Victor: Look at you. President of a highly successful company. Happily married, beautiful child.

Ashley: What more could anybody ask for?

Victor: What indeed? I'm making you uncomfortable.

Ashley: Victor, I just know that something's going on with you.

Victor: Yeah. You know, I don't know what it is, maybe a man and his moods, that's all.

Ashley: But it's just not like you to dwell in he past. You're the type of man that only looks towards the future.

Victor: Don't look back, just move forward. Let bygones be bygones. That has always been my mantra. Yet lately, for one reason or another, I can't help but reflect upon the past, think of what might have been.

Lauren: Look, Iím on your side. I just want you to be happy. And there was a time when I thought that I was gonna be the one to give you that happiness.

Paul: You did, Lauren. You know, and if things had worked out differently --

Lauren: I know, but, you know, circumstances certainly have prevented us from that, huh? Look. About you and Isabella, I really hope that you work through this. Because happy parents make happy children.

Paul: So, you're telling me not to get married right away?

Lauren: What I'm saying is that if you wait, you might have some explaining to do. But it is not as if you're going to emotionally scar your child.

Paul: As long as mom and dad love each other. I get your point.

Lauren: That is the important thing. What about Isabella? Have you given her an answer?

Paul: I told her I'd think about it.

Lauren: She pressuring you?

Paul: You know, Lauren. You might try putting yourself in her shoes. You might feel the same way she does.

Lauren: You know, I want you to think about this long and hard. I want you to think about what's best for you, Isabella and the baby. I don't want you to marry her unless you are truly in love with her and want to spend the rest of your life with her. Otherwise, it won't last. It won't be good for any of you.

Isabella: You're not a fan of honeymoons?

Diane: Let me tell you a little story. I had the most spectacular honeymoon with Victor Newman.

Isabella: I can only imagine.

Diane: He whisked me away in his private jet. And married me en route to our secret destination in the Greek islands, where we spent the most incredibly romantic week together. That was the beginning. But it certainly didn't cement our marriage.

Isabella: So you're saying -- don't overrate the honeymoon.

Diane: I'm saying forget about it. Grab the ring. Grab a preacher. Get the job done.

Isabella: Paul and I do love each other. I really believe that.

Diane: And with that little bun in the oven, Iím sure you'll be saying, "I do" before you know it. Seriously, Isabella, that baby is your ace. Play it now. Don't wait. Isabella? Honey, what is it?

Isabella: Oh, my God. I think it's a contraction! Oh, my God. I think I'm going into labor.

Diane: Okay, okay, okay. Just breathe. Try and relax. Okay?
