As The World Turns Best Lines Thursday 7/8/10


Provided By Eva

Barbara: How long have I been asleep?

Chuckles: Not long enough. You're still here.

Barbara: Did you say something?

Chuckles: I did. What of it?

Barbara: Henry, is that you?

Emily: Thank you for doing this for me.

Paul: You're welcome. It's just a Christmas card. I don't see what the big deal is.

Emily: It's a big deal. It means the three of us are gonna be together on Christmas.

Paul: Why wouldn't we be?

Emily: There's been a lot of uncertainty, and I -- I thought I was gonna lose you.

Paul: I'm right here.

Emily: And I'm right here. This is a fresh start for us. Now that Barbara and Meg are gone.

Paul: Oh, Barbara is not gone.

Emily: I meant that she's -- moved back into the Lakeview, you know, and it's just -- it's just the three of us, and it feels really, really good.

Paul: Yeah, it feels good. I'd feel better if I wasn't in a turtleneck.

Chris: Mom, this has nothing to do with Katie. Even if it did, she'd probably be better off if I go.

Kim: Why would you think that?

Chris: Because I was just with her. She practically told me to go. In fact, if she could have, I think she would have packed my suitcases.

Kim: I don't believe that.

Chris: Ma, you weren't there. She was like one of those recruiting people. According to Katie, I'm the perfect candidate -- no commitments and no intention of making any.

Kim: She said that?

Chris: Yeah, she did, among other things. She thinks that I want to go, so I should go today, as soon as possible.

Kim: And after she said that, did she turn on her heel and stomp away?

Chris: As a matter of fact, she did. But she got a call from Vienna.

Kim: Oh my god, imagine that! Oh, Christopher! You have absolutely no understanding of women!

Chris: Uh, excuse me?

Kim: Do you not realize what was going there? She said all those things to you because she was scared.

Chris: Mother, I know women very well. [Laughs]

Chris: What?

Kim: Right. You have a perfect track record. Please.

Chris: I'm sorry. What are we doing here? Were you channeling tom?

Kim: Forget about tom. Think about Katie.

Chris: What should I think about, mom?

Kim: Think about how she felt for brad, how she loved him with all of her heart, and on a day that should have been one of the happiest days of their lives, he was murdered.

Chris: I know this, mom. But does that mean that she has to stop living?

Kim: Christopher, opening herself up to you means that she also has to open herself up to the possibility of another loss. It is terrifying!

Chris: Wait, mom. If she's so afraid of losing me, why would she send me off to another country? Ma, that does not make any sense.

Kim: It makes perfect sense! Number one, she wants you to want to stay here for her. And if you're gonna go anyway, then she wants you to get the hell out of here before it hurts too much. It's like ripping a band-aid off your arm instead of pulling it off slowly. She wants to take all the pain all at once before she gives her heart to you and you run away! Now, please, you tell me that that makes sense.

Chris: That makes sense. But here's what doesn't make sense. How do you know all this? You weren't even there, and you know. Me, I was standing right there. I don't have a clue. Please, mom, tell me. How do women know this stuff?

Kim: The question is, how do men not know it? The only way you have any chance with Katie is to let her know you're not going anywhere. What the hell are you waiting for?
