As The World Turns Best Lines Thursday 10/8/09


Provided By Eva

Meg: Watch where you step. I picked up the big pieces, but I still need to sweep up.

Jack: How the hell did that happen?

Meg: Obviously I dropped a plate, Jack.

Jack: Wow. Rough day?

Meg: You could say that.

Holden: How could you?

Lily: I was heartbroken. I'd lost you.

Holden: You didn't waste any time replacing me, did you?

Lily: Please, Holden, you know me better than that. We've spent most of our lives together.

Holden: Lily, I was a prisoner. I was chained up. I -- I almost got killed when I was trying to escape. When I make it home, I find you wearing a wedding ring that I've never seen before.

Lily: But how could I have known? How could I have had any idea?

Holden: And rose petals all over the bed.

Lily: I went to your funeral, Holden!

Holden: Yeah, and how long ago was that? A couple of months. Is that all it took?

Lily: Do you have any idea what those months were like for me? Night after night, I just laid in that bed, missing you, mourning you. My god, Holden, there were nights when I just wanted to end it permanently, to go wherever you were.

Holden: What about the children?

Lily: That's why I didn't give in to those thoughts. But, Holden, I was only half there, because without you, I didn't know how to be.

Holden: If that's supposed to make me understand, it doesn't even come close.

Lily: I hoped and I prayed that it was all just a lie, that you would come back to me, but everybody said I was delusional and that I just needed to move on with my life.

Holden: Is that what Damian was saying the whole time he was moving in on you?

Lily: None of this was Damian's --

Holden: Don't defend him. I went through hell to come back to you, and the minute I get back, I find you married to another man. Is this his doing or yours?

Lily: What are you asking me?

Holden: Lily, one of two things happened here. Either he pushed you into this, or the minute I was gone, you went running to him.

Holden: I don't want food. I want you to answer my question.

Lily: Do you really want answers, or do you just want to make me feel worse than I already do?

Holden: Who started it, Lily? You or Damian?

Lily: I don't know. I -- I really don't know how it happened. But I do know that when I lost you, I was devastated, and when I needed someone, Damian was there.

Holden: There were a lot of other people, too -- my mother, my sister, Jack.

Lily: I couldn't open up to them the way that I could with Damian.

Holden: Why not?

Lily: Because they reminded me of you, Holden. When I spoke to anyone who loved you, I -- I feel their loss, their loneliness, and I couldn't take it, because I -- I had enough pain of my own.

Holden: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I -- I should have known. I should have known.

Lily: That's okay. You're here. You're safe. You're home.

Holden: No, Damian -- he saw that you were vulnerable. He saw an opportunity, and he preyed on it.

Lily: I -- I wasn't a victim.

Holden: Oh, yes, you were. Don't you remember when I was telling you that I was suspicious of Damian, that I thought that he still had a thing for you?

Lily: No. He was with meg.

Holden: No, no, no. He pretended to be. But -- but he wanted you. He wanted you all along.

Lily: That's not true.

Holden: Lily, the minute I was gone, meg was forgotten, and he moved in on you.

Lily: That's not the way it happened. He didn't pursue me. He -- he supported me. He held me together. He made me strong for the kids. I wouldn't have survived without him, Holden.

Holden: Okay. So -- so what are you telling me here? You love this guy?

Lily: I love you.

Holden: Well, I'm glad to hear it. But answer my question. Do you love Damian?

Lily: I don't love Damian the way I love you.

Holden: But you do love him.

Lily: In some ways, yes.

Holden: Well, that about says it all.

Lily: Holden, he held the family together when I wasn't strong enough to do it myself. When I was falling apart, he took care of me. He's a good man.

Holden: And you've just discovered this? Or maybe you remember that from when you were married to him before.

Lily: I don't understand what you're saying.

Holden: Lily, normally -- normally, you don't rush into things. But today, I come back here, a -- and you're not dating him. You're not just living with him. [Laughs] You're married to him. And if you decided to do this that quickly, then you must have had feelings for him before.

Lily: Why are we even talking about this? It doesn't matter. You're home.

Holden: Lily, if you were falling for him before I went to Kentucky, it matters to me. I need to know.

Lily: It didn't happen like that.
