As The World Turns Transcript Wednesday 4/7/04

Holden: For you.
Lily: Oh. Wow. What's the occasion?
Holden: The benefit for the Rose Foundation was a huge success.
Lily: Do I have to share these with Dusty?
Holden: Ah, no. You were the star of the show.
Holden: And the audience loved it.
Lily: They were being polite.
Holden: No. You knocked 'em dead, and I am very, very proud of you, so stop being so modest and say thank you.
Lily: Thank you.
Holden: That's better. Now -- we're alone, kids are asleep -- and it's been a very long time since I kissed you by candlelight.
Rosanna: Well, some men wear a tuxedo. Others, the tuxedo wears them. You, apparently, were born to it.
Jordan: Let's just say, in my business, it's not to hard to find a decent tailor on short notice.
Rosanna: And what was the occasion? Or are you just trying to make the rest of us feel underdressed?
Jordan: I was at a benefit for the Rose Foundation.
Rosanna: Oh, yes, I heard about that. You never got a chance to meet Rose, did you?
Jordan: No. No. But I -- I heard some pretty great things about her tonight. It was -- it was quite a party.
Rosanna: So tell me -- in the heat of your busy social life, did you have a chance to think about my job offer?
Jennifer: Ah, sorry it took me so long. I had some messages I -- oh, hello, Rosanna.
Rosanna: Hello, Jennifer. You look lovely.
Jennifer: Thank you. Jordan and I were just at the benefit --
Rosanna: Oh, yes, yes. I heard all about that. And a good time was had by all.
Jennifer: It was quite enjoyable.
Rosanna: Well, that's a very diplomatic view.
Jennifer: And your point?
Rosanna: Considering the way Rose died, I would imagine you wouldn't want to be around her family and friends.
Jennifer: Yes, at first I didn't want to go. But then Jordan said that it would be a gesture of goodwill, and he was right.
Rosanna: Well, that's no surprise. Jordan's one of those guys who always seems to make the right decision.
Jordan: Would you like to join us? We're gonna have one more drink before we call it a night.
Rosanna: Oh, thanks. But I -- I have a really busy morning. It was good to see you both. Good night.
Jordan: Good night.
[Cell phone rings]
Rosanna: Craig, it's Rosanna. Can you meet me at my suite? I need to see you right away.
Craig: Everything okay?
Rosanna: Just get there as soon as you can. Okay?
Craig: All right.
Mike: What are you doing?
Katie: Mike, I -- I didn't know it was you.
Henry: It wasn't. I mean, when did you get here?
Mike: Well, I have the same question for you, Henry. And you, too.
Katie: We were -- on assignment.
Henry: Right. That's -- we were on assignment.
Mike: For what?
Henry: For -- what?
Mike: You followed me here, didn't you?
Katie: No. Honest.
Pilar: If you didn't follow him, then they must've followed me.
Mike: Is that true?
Pilar: Oh, my god! This means he can find me, too.
Mike: No. It's all right, it's all right, it's all right. I won't let anything happen to you.
Katie: All right, I know you're in here. You might as well just show your face. All right, you asked for it. Aha! Aha! Okay. All right, where is he?
Mike: Where's who?
Katie: The guy that she is in cahoots with. The guy that was here before you showed up. What did you do? Throw him out the window the minute Mike got here?
Pilar: You're crazy. I was alone until Mike found me.
Katie: Don't lie to me. I know for a fact that the same guy I saw you with in town was --
Mike: Stop, stop, stop, stop! I can't stand seeing you like this.
Katie: Like what?
Mike: You're making a fool of yourself. I mean, haven't you done enough damage? Do you have to keep making it worse?
Henry: Mike, I'm not going to stand here and let you treat Katie with disrespect.
Mike: Fine. Get out.
Katie: No, stay right where you are. Don't let him talk to you like that. Look, I don't blame you for being surprised that Henry and I are here. But, as soon as he found out that Pilar was registered at this motel --
Mike: Stop -- I still don't know what you think Pilar's done to me.
Katie: Try playing you for a sucker since the minute she hit town.
Mike: Okay, you're so sure she's gonna hurt me. You tell me what you think she's gonna do.
Katie: Well, she's the only one who can answer that question. But let me tell you something -- she is setting you up for something, Mike. Why can't you see that?
Mike: You want me to see things through your eyes? Well, I don't. What I see is this woman who used to have so much to offer turning into this obsessive compulsive, inconsiderate little girl.
Henry: I'm sorry, Mike, but no one insults Katie in my presence.
Mike: I swear, Henry, if you say one more word to me, I will bury you.
Henry: Then again, I think he needs to get this off his chest.
Katie: All right. What about the guy I saw her in town with when she was supposed to be sick as a dog in bed? Did she explain to you why she snuck out of your house to go meet him?
Katie: She did?
Katie: Only if it was the truth.
Mike: Look, the guy's an ex-boyfriend of Pilar's --
Pilar: Mike, no!
Mike: He's an ex-boyfriend of Pilar's who's threatened to kill her. I'm trying to make sure that doesn't happen, but you keep getting in my way.
Pilar: I wish you hadn't said that.
Mike: Look, I had to. All right? Maybe now Katie will have the sense to leave you alone. Look, I want your word, and yours, you're not going to tell anybody where she's staying.
Katie: How can you ask me to do that, Mike? It's playing right into her hands.
Mike: If you don't, someone's life could be in danger. Is that what you want?
Katie: No. All right, fine, I won't tell anyone where Pilar's staying.
Henry: All right, me, too. Scout's honor.
Mike: Good. Get out.
Pilar: I don't care what they say, Michael. I still don't trust them.
Katie: What a coincidence. I feel the exact same way about you.
Henry: You know, Katie -- she's not a very good loser.
Pilar: No matter what I do, this just keeps getting worse. I promised myself I wouldn't get you involved in this, Michael, and that's exactly what I've done. If anything happens to you, I'll never forgive myself.
Lily: Well, it has been a long time.
Holden: I always knew that we would find our way back to each other. Because no matter what happens, that's what we do.
Lily: Oh, I've missed you so much. You're my lover, my partner, friend, my whole life.
Singer: That's why I need you to hear
I found the reason for me to change who I used to be
a reason to start over new and the reason is you
and the reason is you and the reason is you
Jordan: Jen, I know we haven't known each other that long. But if something's on your mind, I'd be happy to listen.
Jennifer: I don't know. Maybe it's nothing. I just feel like Rosanna's been acting really funny around me lately.
Jordan: Funny, how?
Jennifer: I feel like she resents me or doesn't like me. It's crazy, right?
Jordan: Well, I don't know.
Jennifer: Why? Has she said anything to you?
Jordan: No. But we both know how she feels about Paul. Maybe she's projecting some of that onto you?
Jennifer: Well, do you think I should talk to her?
Jordan: What would you say?
Jennifer: Paul and I are two different people.
Jordan: Yeah, thank god for that.
Jennifer: Excuse me?
Jordan: Come on, Jen, we both know that Paul's not the easiest guy in the world to warm up to.
Jennifer: Maybe not for you, but there are plenty of people who feel very close to him.
Jordan: He was supposed to be Rosanna's friend. He hurt her. He was engaged to Rose D'Angelo, he humiliated her.
Jennifer: Jordan, you were not even here. You're just talking about what people have told you.
Jordan: Are you saying that it's not true? No, you can't. Because, unfortunately, it is true. Paul happens to be one of those people who --
Jennifer: He happens to be my brother. And I will not tolerate you, or anyone else, talking against him while I'm around.
Craig: You know, it's funny, I just ran into Jack and Carly, and, wouldn't you know it, your name came up.
Rosanna: How nice.
Craig: No interest in what we were saying?
Rosanna: Not in the slightest. I handed you divorce papers last night. Have you had a chance to look at them?
Craig: You know, I'd like a drink. Hmm? No reason we can't be civil, is there?
Rosanna: Bar's right over there.
Craig: Ah -- what a day, what a day. You know, those bulbs you planted by the gazebo are coming up early this spring.
Rosanna: You know, I'm -- I'm putting things in business terms, because I feel at this point that there is nothing else between us. So, I've made a proposal. I would very much like your response.
Craig: Ah, yes, what you would like. I've been thinking about that quite a bit.
Rosanna: And -- ? Are you going to sign the divorce papers?
Pilar: This is a disaster! Katie and her friend know where I'm staying. Margo knows that my ex is after me. By tomorrow, it'll be a headline in the newspaper.
Mike: Come on, that's not going to happen.
Pilar: He's going to find me, mike. And when he does -- you have no idea how cruel he can be.
Mike: Look, Margo's a cop. Okay, you should be glad she's in your corner. And if Katie gave her word, she'll keep quiet, she will. She's not going to give you away.
Pilar: Katie's word means nothing! If she gets the chance, she'll do anything to get rid of me.
Mike: That's not true. All right, she can be reckless, but she would never hurt anyone on purpose.
Pilar: You still have faith in her? After everything she's done?
Mike: I know her heart. She's a good person. She just gets a little ahead of herself sometimes, that's all.
Pilar: Maybe I should leave tonight instead of tomorrow.
Mike: I already told you, you're coming home with me.
Pilar: Michael, I can't! I don't want you in the middle of this.
Mike: Look, if someone is trying to hurt you, I'm not going to leave you. Okay? So, either you come home with me, or I'm going to take you home with me.
Pilar: I've had so many bad things happen to me over the last few years. I lost faith, Michael. I stopped believing that there could be good in anyone's heart. But now that you're back in my life -- you remind me that there's kindness in the world. Thank you for that.
Mike: Any time.
Pilar: Maybe you're changing my luck. Maybe everything's finally going to be all right.
Katie: How could this have happened, Henry? You saw Pilar's new boyfriend go into that motel room, and then Mike comes out?
Henry: All right, I think I have an explanation.
Katie: I hope so.
Henry: I know for a fact that I saw the guy from the sketch go into Pilar's room. So, he must've left when I went to get the phone from the manager.
Katie: And then Mike shows up in a matter of minutes?
Henry: I don't know. Can you think of anything else?
Katie: No, that must've been it.
Henry: All right, that was a tough break, but at least we know that Pilar's a phony.
Katie: Yeah, well, that was the easy part. The hard part is gonna be convincing Mike.
Henry: Now, listen, are you willing to tell Mike everything I told you, hmm? About the sketch, the phone call, all the details?
Katie: No, 'cause he's gonna be so mad that I went investigating with all that stuff, especially after he and Margo told me to stay out of it.
Henry: Yeah, but now we have results. And when we show him the results, Pilar will be gone.
Katie: No, it's too late, Henry. He's all into protecting her. Needy women are Mike's weakness.
Henry: Alas, many of us have the same affliction.
Katie: And Pilar must've known that, which is why she knew her plan would work! She didn't count on me, and I'm not giving up.
Henry: Whether Mike wants you to or not, right?
Katie: He'll thank us later.
[Henry laughs weakly]
Katie: Now we just have to find out the perfect way to prove to Mike that Pilar's been lying to him this whole time.
Henry: And we do that -- how?
Katie: I'm working on it.
Jennifer: I've had to listen to a lot of bad things about Paul over the past couple months. And it hurt me, Jordan. Even when I knew that he deserved it. Paul is my big brother. Ever since I was a little girl, he's been like a god to me. So, maybe I am a little more sensitive than I should be. But that's just the way it is, and you're just going to have to accept it. You think I'm crazy.
Jordan: No. No, I think you're a very loyal, very loving person. But I just hope --
Jordan: I just hope that your loyalty to Paul is a two-way street.
Jennifer: Sounds like you're trying to tell me something.
Jordan: I haven't known this for very long, and I didn't want to believe it. But Paul hired Carly Snyder to design for B.R.O., behind your mother's back. He's planning on taking over the company and tossing Barbara out.
Jennifer: Is that all? Jordan, Craig Montgomery told that same story weeks ago. It wasn't true then, and it's not true now, either.
Jordan: I didn't hear this from Craig. I heard this from Rosanna, who happens to be Carly's sister.
Jennifer: And she got the story directly from Carly?
Jordan: I know this is the last thing you want to hear -- but Paul is stabbing us all in the back.
Craig: Drink, bub? You know how I hate to drink alone.
Rosanna: Just put -- put it down. I didn't ask you here to play games.
Craig: What games? I am not going to give up on you without a fight.
Rosanna: Look, I thought I made this clear. Our marriage is over. There is nothing left to fight for.
Craig: You made nothing clear! What do you think? That I'm just going to roll over because I meet a little resistance? Uh-uh.
Rosanna: Sign the papers, please. I want you out of my life.
Craig: A spare set?
Rosanna: Yes, in fact, I've made several of them because I know you better than you think I do, and I knew you were going to get cute with me.
Craig: What else do you know?
Rosanna: Sign the papers. They're not going to go away.
Craig: Sorry, bub, neither am I.
Rosanna: Are you telling me that you're not going to sign them?
Craig: We can have dinner tomorrow. I'll think about it. No? All right. Call me if you change your mind.
Rosanna: You have humiliated me. You have broken my heart. And all I'm asking for is a little peace! And you insist on torturing me?
Craig: You doubted me when I was true. You neglected me when I was there, and you left me. And I searched for you because you and I made a commitment. And I refuse to give up hope.
Rosanna: There's no hope. You know how much money I have. I swear to god I'll use every dime that I have to destroy you if you don't sign those papers tonight! Give me my divorce, and get out of my life!
Rosanna: Well, are you happy now? You've given me yet another magical moment to remember you by.
Craig: I promised us a lifetime of happiness.
Rosanna: You don't know how to make me happy. You only know how to make yourself happy. You do what you want, and then you just expect the other person to tag along. That's not love. I don't know what it is, but it's not love.
Craig: You can't tell me there's nothing I can do.
Rosanna: There's something you can do. Of course there's something you can do. You can sign the papers. Sign the papers. Sign the papers, and free us from each other once and for all. Please. Please, don't drag this out any more than it has to be.
Craig: All right. All right. I'll sign the papers. I will always love you.
Craig: It's not over.
Jennifer: Yeah, I don't care what Rosanna says or thinks. Paul is not trying to get my mother out of B.R.O. Especially now, since we all need to stick together -- and it's so important for us to stick together.
Jordan: Look, I know that we have a big show coming up, but Paul and Carly could be --
Jennifer: I'm not talking about that, Jordan.
Jennifer: I called Will's doctor this morning. And he seems to think that Will's reaching a critical phase in his recovery. And if he finds out that the family's fighting again, it could set him back years.
Jordan: I'm not sure that Will is Paul's first priority right now.
Jennifer: Oh, are we really going to take this seriously? Accusations from a woman who hates my brother?
Jordan: Is there any part of you that believes that Rosanna could be right? That Paul and Carly could be working behind our backs? Then don't you think we should do something to protect ourselves?
Jennifer: Like what? Tell my mother? Confront Paul? Then everything we've been building will come crashing down around us.
Jordan: That's a chance that we might have to take, Jen.
Jennifer: I can't. I just want this to go away.
Jordan: It won't. We're going to have to face it, Jennifer. And I'd rather we do it together.
Holden: I just had an inspiration.
Lily: Oh, really? All right, tell me. Oh, no, no -- show me.
Holden: It's not what you think.
Lily: Oh --
Holden: It's close.
Holden: I thought, maybe, we could go to Montana for a couple of days. We started over there before. I think it might be fun to do it again.
Lily: What about the kids?
Holden: My mother can watch them. And business is slow for me right now. So, there's no real reason not to do it.
Lily: Actually, there is. I have to go to Chicago. I have to go. I told Dusty I would pick up a check for the Rose Foundation.
Holden: Well, why can't Dusty do it?
Lily: Well, he could. But I already told him that I would. So --
Holden: All right, well, I'll go to Chicago with you. And we'll spend three days there.
Lily: I wasn't going to stay overnight. There's still so much I need to do for the foundation.
Holden: You deserve a vacation. The foundation will be here when you get back.
Lily: You're right. We should do it a few weeks from now. When we have some time -- to plan out all the details.
Holden: All right. Whatever you want. I'm gonna go downstairs.
Lily: You're angry.
Holden: Nope. Hungry.
Holden: Turkey sandwich, light mayo -- ?
Lily: Light -- yeah, with some chips, please.
Holden: Ah --
Lily: I'm not going to get any crumbs on your side of the bed. Don't worry. Right here. Draw a line.
Holden: All right, you got it.
Lily: Oh, and -- thank you. Thank you for being so understanding.
Holden: You know what? I -- the foundation, I know it's your thing, and I'm not going to get in the way of it.
Lily: Thank you. And, you know, there are lots of ways for us to spend some quality time together without going away.
Holden: I hope you're not counting on that turkey sandwich because all of the sudden --
Jordan: Do you want me to set up a meeting with Rosanna? Maybe it's better if you speak to her yourself.
Jennifer: No, I'm not doing anything behind Paul's back. The first person I'm going to talk to is him.
Jordan: That's a good idea. Let me know what he -- what you want me to know.
Jennifer: I will. You know, I guess I should've seen this coming. Everything was going so well.
Jordan: You're not one of those people who blame the messenger, are you? Good. Then we're still friends?
Jennifer: We're getting there.
Jordan: Hey, I'll take that.
Jennifer: Well, I don't know about you, but this conversation has wiped me out.
Jordan: Me, too. Come on, I'll walk you to your room.
Jennifer: You know, my mom's still might be up.
Jordan: Got it. I'm sorry that we had to end the night on such a downer. But up until the last couple minutes, I was having a really good time.
Jennifer: Thank you for being so honest. Even though it wasn't very pleasant, it's better that I know.
Jordan: I don't want to keep any secrets from you, Jennifer. I have the feeling that you've had enough of that in your life already. Good night.
Jennifer: Good night.
Katie: Henry, you are brilliant.
Henry: Well, well, I wouldn't say brilliant. Although I did well on all the standardized tests. Why do you bring it up?
Katie: Well, I was thinking about what you said about Mike, and I figured out the perfect way to expose Pilar for the phony she is.
Henry: Oh, we've said so much about old Mike in the last few days. Can you remind me?
Katie: Okay. Remember when you said that we should tell him about the sketch, you saw the guy here and followed him to her motel?
Henry: Yeah, you said that would fall on deaf ears.
Katie: Yeah, right, if we tell Mike. But what about telling Margo instead? I mean, she's gonna be a little bit more open to all the holes in Pilar's story.
Henry: Okay, what holes are those?
Katie: Okay, one -- why would you go meet a guy if he had threatened to kill you? Hole two -- if she was so worried about protecting Mike, why would she go back to his house, therefore exposing him to more danger?
Henry: Um -- her toothbrush. Or her favorite pair of PJs.
Katie: Hole number three -- if she was so worried about someone tracking her down, why would she register at a motel under her real name?
Henry: Ah, ooh! That's a good point. And it's very incriminating.
Katie: Thanks, I thought so, too. Now, I just have to hope and pray that Margo does not hang up on me.
Mike: All right. My car's outside. You ready to go? Hey, you okay?
Pilar: I don't know what's wrong with me. I can't get warm.
Mike: No, you're just scared. I don't want you to be afraid anymore. We're not going to let anything happen to you. I'll light a fire as soon as we get back to the cottage.
Pilar: Thank you. Without you -- I don't know what he would've done to me by now. I owe you so much. I owe you my life.
Rose: Encore! Encore! More, more, more!
Lily: Well, actually, I do have another song.
Rose: Well, come on, Tiger Lily! Come on! Let's hear it.
Holden: Lily? It's time to go.
Lily: But I was just about to -- to sing another song.
Holden: I have an early day tomorrow. And I sleep better when you're next to me.
Rose: Oh, come on, Tiger Lily. Come on, sing. Sing!
Holden: I need you. Lily, come on. It's over. I need you.
Rose: Oh, come on, Tiger Lily! Sing.
Holden: I need you.
Rose: Come on, sing!
Holden: I need you.
Rose: Oh, come on, Tiger Lily, come on.
Holden: I need you. And I love you. And it's good to have you back.
Lily: I love you, too.
Mike: Maybe I've been giving you the wrong idea.
Pilar: No, you haven't. But I've wanted to kiss you so many times since I came back. Tonight, I couldn't stop myself.
Mike: Well, I guess things could be worse. Look, I'm just not at that place right now. I hope you understand.
Pilar: Your heart's been broken. Some men heal it by jumping into bed with the first woman who comes along. Then there's someone like you. The kind of man who only comes along once in a lifetime.
Mike: Don't make me out to be a hero. All right? I'm just trying to do the best I can. You know, this would be a lot easier if Katie didn't keep popping up every time I turn around.
Pilar: You'll get there, Michael. One day, you'll be able to share yourself with someone else again.
Mike: Thank you. You're good for me, you know that?
Pilar: Then why aren't we still together? Don't answer that. I made the mistake of letting you go. And now I have to live with it.
Mike: We were different people then. I just think it's best for both of us if we just -- if we stay friends.
Pilar: It's ironic though. Sometimes I think we have more in common now than ever.
Mike: For some reason, I get the feeling you're not talking about us both giving up race cars.
Pilar: No. But we both got involved with other people who were much less than they appeared to be.
Mike: Ready to get out of here? Huh? Let's do it.
Pilar: If this ever gets too much -- protecting me --
Mike: Stop, stop. All right, anything I've done has been my choice. I'm not leaving you. That's the end of it.
Pilar: I knew you would say that. All these years and you still haven't changed.
Mike: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Let me go first, all right?
Katie: Margo's still not answering. I think we're gonna have to wait till tomorrow morning.
Henry: All right, what do you say to drinks at the Lakeview? I'm breaking in a new bartender.
Tom: Henry, Katie -- you guys mind if I sit down?
Katie: Hey, tom, what's going on?
Tom: Actually it was Margo's idea. She said you'd left a couple of messages on her voicemail.
Katie: Oh, good. Is she on her way?
Tom: Well, she's not, but she asked me to handle something on her behalf.
Katie: You sound majorly legal, Tom. What's going on?
Tom: A complaint was filed against you this evening by Pilar Domingo and Mike Kasnoff. Margo decided if you're not going to take care of yourself, she'll do it for you.
Katie: What is this?
Tom: That is a restraining order.
Tom: Consider yourself served.
Oscar: The usual, Mr. Montgomery?
Craig: Make it a double, would you, Oscar? I've had a particularly rough night. You married, Oscar?
Oscar: Yes, sir.
Oscar: Pretty much.
Craig: Good for you. I just signed my divorce papers.
Oscar: Sorry to hear that, Mr. Montgomery. Drink's on me.
Rosanna: You know how much money I have. And I swear to god that I'll use every dime that I have to destroy you if you don't sign those papers tonight!
Craig: Why now? Why now, Rosanna? Why did you want to get divorced now so badly that you couldn't wait another day?
Rosanna: Oh, hello. Headed to bed so soon?
Jordan: Well, I got some stuff I got to do in the morning. So did Jennifer.
Rosanna: Oh. Well, I guess that's good. It gives you a little more time to think about my job offer, hmm?
Jordan: Rosanna -- working for you would be a great experience and I'm unbelievably flattered by the offer. But I made a commitment to B.R.O., And I'm going to follow through on it.
Rosanna: Oh. So, you're not only smart, you're loyal, too?
Jordan: Well, I don't know about the smart part -- passing up an opportunity like this. But I just -- I hope there's no hard feelings.
Rosanna: Oh, come on. Not at all. Not at all. I wish you the best of luck. Hmm?
Rosanna: You know, in a way, this arrangement works a little better for me. It's easy for me to find people who work for me. Finding friends -- it's a lot more difficult.
Jordan: Well, I'm honored that you consider me a friend. Anything you ever need, all you have to do is ask.
Rosanna: Thank you. You, too. I mean, if you wanna call or stop by anytime -- I'll drop what I'm doing.
Jordan: That's quite an offer.
Rosanna: I meant every word. See you around the neighborhood.
[Rosanna sighs] I need you so badly, Jordan. You have no idea how much.
On the next "As The World Turns" --
Pilar: There she is. Arrest her.
Jennifer: Whatever you're going to do to mom, whatever plan you have, you better drop it! Unless you're planning on losing me, too.
Carly: What are you doing here?
Barbara: I need your help.
