As the World Turns Transcript Thursday 2/14/02
Nancy: Who sent these beauties? "Happy Valentine's Day, Mom. Love, Bob and Kim." "To my wife on Valentine's Day." "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways."
Singer: Love is in the air everywhere I look around love is in the air every sight and every sound and I don't know if I'm being a fool
Nancy: Chris? Oh, Chris, I'd know you anywhere.
Singer: Don't know if I'm being wise
Nancy: I only wish I could kiss you back.
Singer: But it's something that I must believe in
Nancy: Happy Valentine's Day, darling.
Singer: And it's there when I look in your eyes Love is in the air, in the whisper of the trees
Katie: "If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were loved by wife, then thee. If ever wife was happy in a man, compare with me, ye women, if you can!
Simon: You rule! Yeah!
Katie: Yeah! Thank you. So do you.
Simon: "Always be mine."
Katie: So sweet!
Simon: You're amazing, it's like these conversational hearts are psychic. This one, too. Oh, what do we have here? The all too rare double heart.
Katie: How odd.
Simon: And it says -- "Simon Frasier is absolutely crazy for his wacky wife, Katie."
Katie: How on earth did they fit all that on there?
Simon: I don't know. It's amazing.
Katie: Do you ever wonder what would have happened if you never came to rescue me from that island?
Simon: That's an absolutely crazy question. I mean, you're the one who said from the beginning that we always belonged together.
Katie: I know, but if you didn't get on that plane, and you didn't come to rescue me --
Simon: Well, we would have found each other, wouldn't we?
Woman: That was beautiful. Maybe we can go someplace a little more -- private -- when you finish here?
Simon: I'm flattered, but I really can't.
Reporter: Ms. Peretti, a comment for your fans?
Photographer: Ms. Peretti, look this way. Ms. Peretti?
Dahlia: No, no, no. No photos, boys. And no comment about the seven-figure deal.
Reporter: Seven-figure deal?
Katie: Yes, for the movie rights to my best-selling autobiography detailing my daring escape from a desert island.
Dahlia: And her subsequent rise to fame.
Katie: Okay, no more, boys. You know how tiring these worldwide press junkets can be.
[Romantic music plays]
Simon: Katie, it really is you.
Simon: You remembered.
Katie: Of course. You were my husband at one time. Although not much of a marriage, I'm sad to say.
Simon: You're right. I was rotten. I should have dropped everything and scoured the Atlantic searching for you.
Katie: Why didn't you?
Simon: I was stupid. You were right all along. We belong together, Katie. I miss you so much. And I love you, I love you more than I have loved anyone.
Dahlia: You're kidding, right? This woman is a major star. She has more important things to do than waste her time with some Australian boy toy. Now Miss Katie, come with me.
Simon: Don't. Stay, stay. Please, stay. I can make it up to you, Katie. I can make you love me again.
[Romantic music plays]
Craig: Here's looking at you, kid. Morning, monkey face. Breakfast in bed?
Carly: With a man-sized portion of eggs Benedict -- or shall I say, Benedict Arnold!
[Craig screams] tell me, darling, does the shoe fit?
Craig: And what has yours truly done to deserve such apprehension?
Carly: As if you don't know. You've been a perfect ass, Montgomery!
Craig: Well, we all achieve perfection in some arena.
Carly: You are a first-class, grade-a stinker, you know that?
Craig: Why, I have half a mind to take you over my knee.
Carly: Darling, you haven't that much mind to spare!
Craig: Come here.
Carly: Hey! Get your mitts off me, you big palooka! You have a lot of nerve trying to maul me with that boozehound's cheap perfume stinking up the place.
Craig: Where are you going?
Carly: To crack a window.
Craig: She's jealous. Daddy likes that.
Carly: You do, do you?
Craig: It means you like me. Very appealing in a dame. But I'll tell you what daddy doesn't like?
Carly: Do tell.
Craig: You drive me to drink making goo-goo eyes at that gloomy gumshoe.
Carly: You mean my ever-loving g-man? Trust me, handsome, I wouldn't give him a second glance if you hadn't spent the night with that widow with the large endowment.
Craig: And she says she's not jealous.
Carly: Watching you grovel for a woman so obviously beneath you? Don't make me laugh.
Craig: Well, beneath me, yeah. But did you catch a gander at the size of that endowment? Oh, come on, sugar lips, you don't want to do that. Huh? Come on, cookie. We're a team. You're my girl. I'm your guy, your dreamboat, your reason for purring. Admit it.
Carly: I am fond of you, Montgomery --
Carly: -- From time to time. I think they call it temporary insanity.
Craig: What temporary? You're brazen, unpredictable, unfathomable and totally irresistible. And heaven help the fool who tries to tame you. But I'm dizzy for you, doll face. I mean it. You're pure platinum, pussycat.
Carly: Gee, baby. It does sound like you mean it.
Craig: Hello, you.
Carly: Hello, you. You see something you like?
Craig: The whole gift-wrapped package. Come on, Cannoli, what do you say? Am I forgiven?
Carly: Do you have to ask?
Craig: What a girl. How about a kiss?
Carly: Sure thing. I know how much you love fresh-squeezed. But heck, you're lucky that's the only thing that got the life squeezed out of it.
Craig: Oh, baby. What a blonde! Yowzah!
[Michael Park sings]
If I could save time in a bottle the first thing that I'd like to do is to save every day till eternity passes away just to spend them with you If I could make days last forever, if words could make wishes come true I'd save every day like a treasure and then again, I would spend them with you but there never seems to be enough time to do the things you want to do once you find them I've looked around enough to know that you're the one I want to go through time with When this old world starts getting me down and people are just too much for me to face I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs and all my cares just drift out into space
Adam: You probably want to be alone. I was gonna leave, but then I looked at you.
Abigail: Well, I'm glad you didn't leave.
Adam: You sure?
Abigail: Yes, I'm sure. Some things are meant to be shared. Look.
Kristina: And there the world below can't bother me
Adam: It's a shooting star!
Abigail: There are millions of them. It's like magic, isn't it?
Adam: Yeah, magic. Aren't we supposed to make a wish now?
Abigail: I already did. But don't ask me to tell you what it was about, because then, it won't come true.
Adam: Well, then, it's my turn. Do you realize, Abigail, just how much you've changed my life?
Abigail: You've changed me. You've helped me keep hoping. And that I should never give up no matter what.
Adam: And you have given me something to wish for. I guess that makes us about even, doesn't it?
Kristina: I keep telling you right smack dab
Kristina: In the middle of town
Kristina: I've found a paradise up on the roof
Lucy: Dear Diary -- major question to ponder for Valentine's Day. "What is love?" I know all about sex. I mean, they make us take three classes a week on that. It's love that has me completely confused. How can you tell if you're in it? Or if someone's in it with you?
[Romantic music plays]
Lucy: Is it the way he'll look at me? The way he'll say my name? Will I know he's the one the moment my eyes meet his? I know everyone has a soul mate, the person they're destined to love for life, no matter what. I wonder if I'll ever meet mine? And if right this very moment, he's wondering if he'll ever meet me? I may not know him yet, but I already know his heart. We'll find each other soon. And when that happens, I'll never let him go.
Lily: "The moment I laid eyes on you, you branded yourself into my mind and heart --"
Lily: "-- And I knew I could never let you go --"
Holden: Not so bad -- for a guy who trains horses for a living, huh?
Lily: You think I'm surprised to find poetry in that soul?
Lily: It was always there. Don't buy it when it's clear this time you've found the one you never let him go 'cause you know and you know that you know you can feel love's around you like the sky 'round the moon this is how love has found you now you know what to do when you know that you know who you need, you can't deny it or go back
Lily: And you've never, ever been out of my heart since. Thank you. For the cards, for the flowers -- oh, and especially for you.
Lily: There was a time when I didn't think we'd spend another Valentine's Day together. But I never gave up hope.
Holden: And I knew that you'd come. Even on the darkest days, I knew. And it's the faith and the love and downright stubbornness that keeps us together. Always will.

Lisa: "Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song, a medley of extemporanea. And love is a thing that can never go wrong -- and I am Marie of Romania."
Bonnie: Okay, two cupid's arrows for the barfly and her lowlife boyfriend in the corner. I tell you, Isaac, your clientele has reached a all new low -- sub-basement. And by the way, that shirt -- what, bargain discount at gangsters 'R us?
Isaac: Valentine's Day really brings out the bitter in you.
Bonnie: Look, there is nothing special about this day, okay? It's just like any other day of the week. And tell me, how am I supposed to come in here all bright and sun shiny, when I work in a dungeon with someone like you?
Isaac: You really don't know how good you have it, do you, duchess?
Lisa: Is that the way you talk to a man you're crazy about? Or is this the way you talk to Isaac when you know that the duke is in the picture again?
Bonnie: Was it that bad? Well, Lisa, it's not the easiest thing in the world to take a leap forward with Isaac when I know that if I just say three little words a thousand times, I could be a duchess.
Lisa: Oh, darling, you don't know a thing about royalty.
Jennifer: Cinder Bonnie, did you hear? The prince is on his way! He is on his way here!
Bonnie: But why?
Jennifer: Well, he'll marry the girl who lost her glass slipper at the ball last night! And now he's going door-to-door in search of the shoe's rightful owner. And when he finds her, she will become a princess!
Bonnie: My shoe.
Jennifer: This is your chance to get out of this dump and marry the most eligible man in all the land!
Jessica: Cinder Bonnie? Taking a break?
Bonnie: No --
Jessica: You already had a break last week! And we are having royalty to tea, so this house must be spic 'n' span! Someone is getting married!
Bonnie: Do you really think I could marry royalty?
Jessica: Of course, darling!
[Evil laughter] not in your wildest dreams! Girls? Girls?
Lucinda: Yes, me first! Me, first! Me, first! Me, first!
Barbara: No, me! Me!
Lucinda: Age before beauty.
Barbara: Oh, well, then, by all means!
Jessica: All right! Simmer down. Simmer down, Barbarous. And Lucifer.
Barbara: When they take one look at this foot, he's gonna fall madly in love with me.
Lucinda: One whiff of that foot and he'll fall off his horse!
Jessica: All right, all right! Now, now, now, now. I shall choose who shall go first. We shall do "one-potato, two-potato."
Barbara: My favorite game!
Jessica: One potato, two potato, three potato, four. Five potato --
Barbara: What's that doing in here!?
Lucinda: That's a scrawny foot!
Barbara: And all those ashy, trashy clothes!
Lucinda: You want to hear something funny? Somebody here wants to be a princess!
[Trumpet fanfare] why, lord high chancellor, sir. What a surprise! Please come in!
Ben: His majesty, the prince, has requested that every woman in the kingdom shall -
Barbara: Give that to me!
[Talking over each other]
Ben: -- With the youngest.
[Barbara and Lucinda fighting] may I?
Jessica: It's not possible!
Ben: There's someone who's dying to meet you. I bow. You bow. We all bow for the one, the only -- give it up for prince charming.
Bonnie: You? You're -- charming?
[Twinkling noise] well, you're not at all what I expected.
Isaac: Well, life is full of surprises. Wait until you see what I have planned to make you forget all about that dusty, musty little duke, my princess.
Isaac: Bonnie? Bonnie? Finally. You have these two cupid's arrows on table number three. Can you handle that? Because I've got a number to announce, duchess.
Bonnie: Don't you mean princess?
Isaac: Ladies and gentlemen! May I present, the one, the only Lisa Miller Hughes Aldridge Shea Colman McCall Mitchell Grimaldi Chedwyn!
Lisa: Why, thank you so much, Mr. Jenkins. I loved the marvelous introduction. I know, some of you wonder, how in the world was I ever able to marry eight men? Oh, darlings, it was simple. I was in love. Well, I was in love, not with all eight of them. I was in love with six of them -- two I hated. But don't worry, I kept all of the rings. If I took those rings and melted them all down, I would have enough gold to have -- well, Fort Knox would just come and ask me for a handout. Right, boys?
Dancers: Right, gorgeous!
Lisa: Oh, dear! Aren't they precious? Are we ready for a roll call?
Dancer: Yes, ma'am.
Lisa: Well, all right then. Husband one! Husband two! Three -- bad. Four! Five! Six! Seven -- rotten. Eight.
[Music from "It's Raining Men" plays]
It's raining men hallelujah
It's raining men every specimen
Tall, blonde dark and mean rough and tough and strong and lean
God bless mother nature she's a single woman, too
She took on a heaven and she did what she had to do
She taught every angel to rearrange the sky so that each and every woman could find her perfect guy
It's raining men hallelujah
It's raining men amen
It's raining men hallelujah
It's raining men amen
Stars shining bright above you night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
You miss me, sleepyhead?
Paul: You're back! You're here! You were --
Rose: Oh, I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but right now, all I am is the girl in your dreams?
Paul: You mean, you're not real?
Rose: I know it's not perfect, but I mean, think about it. In your dreams, you can say whatever you want and do whatever you want.
Paul: Hey, whoa, whoa. Wait, wait. There's something I got to tell you.
Rose: He brings me all the way here for a Valentine's dream, and now he wants to talk to me.
Paul: Yeah, I finally realized how much of an idiot I was before you left.
Rose: No. You finally got it through that thick head of yours there's never been anybody but you for me?
Paul: I should've listened to you. Think you can forgive me?
Rose: Mmm. I guess I'm gonna have to. Seeing as it's your dream and all.
Paul: I miss you so much. And if I see you again, I will never, ever stop showing you how much I love you.
Rose: Welcome back. And I got plans --
Paul: Oh, yeah?
Rose: -- For you. For us.
Paul: Yeah? That's interesting. See, 'cause I got a few plans of my own.
Tom: Hey. Would you please stop? Can't you even take five minutes for the man of your dreams?
Margo: I don't get a break, Tom. I get grief. I get ignored by my kids. I get buried up to here in paperwork. I'm buried by bills and buried by grocery lists and laundry that I never seem to get done and --
Tom: I know. And if you take five minutes for yourself, you get buried even deeper. Well, perhaps I could put a smile on that beautiful face before you go back to work?
Margo: Well, nice try. But every day, I get up, I go to work. You show up with a cup of black coffee and a muffin from Java. The next day, it's the same --
Tom: Yeah, but you know, I didn't bring you coffee.
Margo: Well, then, what's in that bag?
Tom: Happy Valentine's Day. And don't ever say there's not enough excitement in our lives. Because you do excite me. In fact, you give me fever, baby.
Margo: I give you fever?
Tom: Yes, you give me fever. Disco fever.
[Singer] Whoo girl, I've known you very well. I've seen you growing every day, I never really looked before but now you take my breath away. Suddenly you're in my life, a part of everything I do, you got me working day and night just trying to keep a hold on you Here in your arms, I found my paradise, my only chance for happiness and if I lose you now, I think I would die. Say you'll always be my baby, we can make it shine, we can take forever just a minute at a time more than a woman, more than a woman to me; more than a woman, more than a woman to me more than a woman, more than a woman to me
Molly: Jake? McKinnon, are you aware that this place is closed for the winter?
Jake: Don't turn around. Don't turn around. And don't ask why, there's a method to my madness. Comfy?
Molly: Am I allowed to answer?
Jake: You can answer. You just can't turn around.
Molly: Okay. Yes, I am so comfy.
Jake: I think you can actually be comfier. How's that?
Molly: You tell me.
Jake: I can't, I'm speechless.
Molly: You are never speechless. Can I please turn around?
Molly: Suppose I want to kiss you.
Jake: That's funny you should mention that because that brings us to the burning question. Why did I bring you here when this place is closed? Need a hint?
Molly: A hint?!
Molly: Ha! You think that I need a hint to remember that this was the first place that you ever kissed me, McKinnon?
Jake: Glad you remember that. Let's go back there. Let's go back to that night. Let's pretend that the only thing that matters is how lucky we are we have found each other, because that has not changed.
Molly: I love you.
Jake: I love you. Would you dance with me?
Molly: All right.
[Singer] My girl, my girl, my girl -- talking 'bout my girl my girl! I've got so much honey the bees envy me
Kim: How long have you been standing there?
Bob: Long enough to realize that the most beautiful woman in the world is standing in my kitchen. In my kitchen. I keep waiting to hear sirens.
Bob: Yes. "We know you're in there, Hughes. Come out with your hands up." Come and get me, copper. When they do, they come in and they read me my rights. And they tell me that I'm accused of stealing your life when you were destined -- hear me? -- Destined to be with someone in a higher place.
Kim: "Higher place"?
Bob: Like a guy who owns a Ferris wheel.
Kim: Dr. Hughes, I think you're having a very severe case of Valentine-itis.
Bob: Well, I love you. I love you on Valentine's Day, and I love you every day.
Kim: Honey, I love you, too. Only you didn't steal anybody's life. I ended up right where I was supposed to be.
Bob: Don't you know there are times instead of just counting my lucky stars for what we have, I wish that -- I wish that we'd married sooner.
Bob: Now I know that's pure greed. With all our happiness, it is what I wish sometimes.
Kim: Well, I just figured it wasn't our time. We had to wait until we were both a little older and a little wiser.
Bob: In my case, just a little older.
Kim: Oh, you fruitcake, you. What do you suppose our younger selves would think if they could hear us now?
Bob: Who cares? They're kids. What do they know?
Kim: You got a point.
Bob: Dance with me.
Kim: Is this a trick?
Bob: You're taking your life in your hands.
Kim: I probably am.
Nancy: "I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears of all my life. And if God chooses, I shall but love thee better after death." It's true, darling. Everything the poet said is true.
Singer: We will be as one God bless our love. God bless our love. Grow old along with me; two branches of one tree.
Chris: There's only one Nancy in the whole wide world for me.
Singer: Face the setting sun when the day is done God bless our love. God bless our love.
