As The World Turns Best Lines Tuesday 6/8/10


Provided By Eva

Casey: Really? Daniel's doing okay?

Tom: He's better than okay. He's on the debating team. Look like they're gonna be competing against Exeter next month.

Casey: Wow! That's impressive.

Tom: Hey. Also, on the baseball team, varsity, shortstop. He's -- he's thrilled. So am I.

Casey: That's it. Just keep rubbing it in. But I can still take him in arm-wrestling.

Tom: This is not a competition. I'm proud of all your accomplishments, as well.

Casey: Oh, really? Which -- which one's your favorite -- jail or my failed engagement? 'Cause I'm gonna go with jail.

Tom: Cut it out. Your grades are improving. You've turned your life around. Stop being so self-deprecating. I'm proud of all my sons.

Henry: It's okay. It's okay. I just need a minute. I don't want you to stick around watching me make a fool of myself.

Barbara: Oh, come on, Henry. I've seen you in a superhero cape. Nothing can embarrass me. Not a paper bag. Besides, I owe you.

Henry: You owe me?

Barbara: Yeah, 'cause you were with me when I was having a panic attack of my own, waiting to find out if my cancer was back.

Henry: This is different.

Barbara: How so?

Henry: I don't -- I don't feel comfortable talking to you about it.

Barbara: Because of Vienna and the baby? Well, lucky for you, I'm over it.

Henry: You are?

Barbara: Well, yeah. You and Vienna are getting married. You're having a child, and I have to accept it and move on.

Henry: That's, uh -- that's good for you.

Barbara: Not like I had any choice, but -- I'm hoping we can still be friends.

Henry: I hope so, too.

Barbara: Then don't push a friend away when you're in trouble, even if it's just a panic attack.

Henry: I really feel foolish.

Barbara: Oh, don't. Why don't you tell me what happened?

Henry: I was -- I was on my way to the hospital to see Vienna. She's seeing her ob-gyn. I stopped by a baby store to get her something. A surprise, you know. And I was getting in the car, and I saw this park.

Barbara: What about it?

Henry: Well, when we lost the baby, Vienna and I came out here, and we, uh -- we let some balloons loose. It was a -- I don't know. It was a ceremony, sort of.

Barbara: Like a goodbye.

Henry: Like a goodbye. And I -- I don't know. I just stood out here and thought about all those balloons and them floating away.

Barbara: It reminded you of what you lost.

Henry: Yeah, Barbara. I got really scared, 'cause if it could happen once, it could happen again.

Barbara: No, no, no. Fate is not gonna be that cruel. It's not gonna take away your chance to be a father.

Henry: I'm not so sure that it can't happen again.

Barbara: Oh, come on. Come on. I mean, look at me. I beat all the odds when they weren't in my favor. You can handle this. I know you can

Barbara: What a gorgeous day. It's hard to believe that anything in the world can go wrong when it's so beautiful like this.

Henry: Yet they do.

Barbara: Yeah, they do.

Henry: Thank you, though, for trying to cheer me up.

Barbara: Is it working?

Henry: Eh, it's--

Barbara: You know, you have no reason to be having panic attacks, because the baby's going to be fine, and you're gonna be a wonderful father.

Henry: You think so?

Barbara: Oh, I do. And trust me, I was married to the most loathsome father on the planet.

Henry: James Stenbeck, Daddy Dearest.

Barbara: Yeah.

Henry: Yeah. I'm just lucky that I didn't have to go through that.

Barbara: You have no idea how lucky.

Henry: Sometimes I feel for Paul. Trust me.

Barbara: Well, Paul turned out okay.

Henry: That depends on your definition of okay.

Barbara: Paul's complicated.

Henry: Mm.

Barbara: But he's a good man. And so are you.

Henry: Thank you. I mean that.

Barbara: I mean it, too.

Henry: Well, no more panic attacks for me. I'm, uh -- I'm done heaving for the day. It's time to get back to the real world.

Barbara: Yeah, yeah. Unfortunately, I guess we should. But one more thing. I don't want what happened between us to keep you from moving on. I want you to give everything you have to Vienna and that baby, 100%, because they deserve to be happy, and so do you.

Henry: I hope you find what you're looking for, too, Barbara.

Barbara: I thought I had.

Henry: I'm sorry
