Today on As the World Turns ...
As the township board grants Paul 30 days to clean up the mess at the farm development, Mike discovers that the figures Paul's using to determine the level of toxicity are out of date and inaccurate.
Lily interrupts with a picnic dinner and invites him to go watch the sunset with her. He claims he's too busy which hurts her.
Later, Mike advises Paul and Meg that 30 days is not long enough to deal with their problem so Paul offers him whatever he needs to get the job done under the time limit.
Meg asks where he's getting the money from but he simply tells her to trust him. Later, after Henry gives him a phone number to call, mob financier Derek brings Paul cash for the project, warning him he has 30 days to pay it back plus the $20,000 handling fee.
Henry warns Bonnie to stay away from Paul.
Mike apologizes to Lily and insists that he is interested in starting a relationship with her. Admitting how proud of him he is, Bob warns Chris that now that he's back on staff, he wants him to stay away from Alison.
Chris insists Alison is a friend so Bob tells him to keep his pants on.
As she helps him into bed at the farm, Alison advises Aaron that she can't respond to his confession of love because she's afraid of losing his friendship.
Concerned his wound is developing an infection, Alison reluctantly okays Chris examining him. Chris and Alison agree to act professionally around each other at work.
Back at the hospital, Chris tells Bob he's not giving up on Alison but will do it right this time. Lucinda introduces Brian Wheatly to Luke and Noah as the possible head of Luke's foundation.
Luke confides to Lucinda that based on how much he talked about her, he thinks Brian's interested in Lucinda.
Lucinda hires Brian who takes her to Metro in thanks. There, they run into Noah and Luke who toast to the new foundation and celebrate with them.
