As The World Turns Transcript Monday 8/23/04
Proofread by Emma
Ben: I have the baby's DNA! Do I have to go ask doc for a sample, or are there other possible fathers?
Jessica: Ben, I couldn't --
Ben: No, you could, and you did. Because that baby you lost wasn't mine.
Jessica: Honey, I'm so sorry.
Ben: Sorry for what? For cheating, for lying about it, or for getting caught?
Jessica: I didn't lie. I didn't know -- it was just one stupid mistake with doc, one meaningless -- and with everything we were doing to make it happen. I -- I just believed it was your baby. I mean, we were trying so hard --
Ben: So, what, you figured you'd go to Doc Reese for insurance?!
Ben: Huh? What were you thinking?! It didn't matter who the father was, as long as you could pass him off as mine! You all had a good laugh about that?
Jessica: No! That's not what happened!
Ben: Then what happened?! You gonna tell me he raped you, too?!
Carly: Hey. Where did you learn that?
Parker: I don't know.
Carly: That's the music from when I married Jack, when we went to Montana.
Carly: That was a long time ago. How do you remember it?
Parker: Jack plays it.
Carly: He did. Yeah, but Jack hasn't played music for a long time.
Parker: He's playing it right now.
Julia: That's nice. Does that bring anything back for you?
Jack: Not really. I know I can't get it out of my head, but I don't know why I know it or what it means or -- damn it.
Julia: Jack, we just learned something else about you.
Jack: No, I remember how to cuss.
Julia: Yes, and you also know how to play the piano, and pretty well. You must have been doing it for awhile.
Jack: Yeah, I guess so.
Julia: We're gonna add that to the list, Jack. We'll just keep adding things until we figure out who you are and where you came from.
[Knocking at door]
Naomi: Get the door for me, would you please? Thank you.
TV announcer: Call now for item 27 from the Anna Nicole Smith collection.
Dusty: I'm looking for Naomi. Naomi, I'm Dusty.
TV announcer: Call now, 1-800 --
Naomi: Hey, get a load of that, would ya? Is that gorgeous or what? Tricolor gold. Only 22 of 'em left. But there are only 15 people online ahead of me. This is gonna be my lucky day.
TV announcer: Item 27 is going fast.
Dusty: That is gorgeous. Hang up the phone.
Naomi: Huh? Oh, listen, would you do the top of those, too, while you're at it? You know, dust collects up on the top of them just the same as anyplace else. Well, what is with that look? You know, I used to do your job twice as good at half the pay, honey.
TV announcer: Call now. 1-800-555-shop.
Dusty: Naomi, hang up the phone. We gotta chat.
Naomi: Who are you? What do we have to chat about?
Dusty: Room number 8. The Lucky Leaf Casino Hotel. Last month.
Naomi: Well, you think I'd remember a hottie like you.
Dusty: I think you'd remember, 'cause you used to work there. Remember, you used to clean rooms? Let's hang that up now.
Naomi: Listen, why don't you knock it off for awhile? I know, would you go downstairs and get me some peanut brittle and a diet soda? I'll pay you back when you get up here. Okay.
Dusty: I know about the money.
Naomi: What money?
Dusty: What money? The money in the room -- the room you cleaned up shortly after I split. Remember? Right before you quit your job? Looks like you're settin' yourself up here in style. Really. Now you're going to help me.
Barbara: You can't arrest me, Hal.
Hal: I just did.
Barbara: You can't arrest me because you don't have a shred of evidence to implicate me.
Hal: Really? How about we found the helicopter pilot, the one that you hired to help James break out of jail.
Rosanna: She was lying, I knew it!
Rosanna: She killed our baby!
Barbara: No! I didn't, I didnít.
Hal: I'm taking you in.
Nikki: Dad, let me take care of it. Look, you need to be here for Carly and the rest of the officers.
Hal: Are you sure?
Nikki: It would be my pleasure.
Hal: All right, take my cruiser. It's the one out front. Make sure that she's read her rights and she signs all the paperwork.
Nikki: You can count on it. Let's go.
Barbara: Jennifer, Jennifer, I swear to you. I didn't do this. I didn't do this.
Nikki: Let's go.
Barbara: You're wrong! All of you! You're wrong! I didn't do it!
Naomi: I don't know any Wade Larsen. I certainly have never been to that hotel, and I have never stolen money from anybody.
Dusty: How'd you go from being a maid to living like this?
Naomi: What are you, a cop? If it's any of your business, I hit a jackpot.
Dusty: I'm not a cop. And I don't care that you took the money. You can have the money. I just want to know if you found anything else in that room.
Dusty: Besides the money, did you find anything else laying around that room?
Naomi: Listen buddy, I keep tellin' you, I don't even know what money it is you're talkin' about, here.
Dusty: I may not be a cop, but I'll call one if don't cooperate. You don't know what I'm talking about? You clean those rooms. You clean those rooms. You go over every inch. What did you find?
Naomi: That man was a real pig.
Dusty: Yes, he was.
Naomi: Yeah, there were dirty clothes everywhere, stains all over 'em.
Dusty: All right. All right. What else? What else?
Naomi: Nasty lookin' toothbrush in the bathroom. I threw that out.
Dusty: Anything else?
Naomi: No just the bag with the money in it.
Dusty: The bag you took to carry the money?
Naomi: Well, I wasn't about to stuff it in my pockets.
Dusty: Where's the bag?
Naomi: I don't know, actually. It's probably around here someplace. Maybe it's in my closet.
Dusty: I'd like you to find it for me, Naomi. Now, please.
Molly: I don't even know what to say to her.
Holden: There's really nothing to say, just that you care.
Molly: Yeah. Sometimes it's the only thing you've got.
Holden: Molly, listen. What I was about to say earlier -- I told Lily -- hey.
Emma: Hi, darling.
Holden: Hi. Lucinda, thanks for coming.
Lucinda: Of course I'd be here, darling.
Holden: Aaron thanks for picking them up.
Aaron: Yeah, no problem.
Holden: How's Natalie?
Luke: Mom says she still has a fever.
Emma: Lily didn't think Faith should come. But Faith drew this little picture.
Holden: Wings and a cape.
Emma: Yeah, she wanted to make sure that Jack got up to the clouds.
Holden: I have just the perfect spot for it.
Hal: Listen, Tom, this could probably wait until after the service, but I wanted to give you a heads-up.
Tom: What's up?
Hal: We just arrested Barbara -- aiding and abetting a fugitive.
Tom: No. She did not help Stenbeck?
Hal: She hired the chopper that got him out. We have it cold.
Tom: My office will get into it right after the service.
Barbara: We'll see how you like it when I file charges for wrongful arrest! This is a mistake.
Nikki: Look. Please put your personal possessions in this bag so they can process you, okay?
Barbara: I get a phone call first, don't I?
Nikki: You get one. You can make it now or you can make it later.
Nikki: Knock yourself out.
Carly: I don't know what to do for him. The memorial service is starting and I've got people waiting for me.
Mike: So go, Carly. He's fine.
Carly: Fine? He's --
Mike: He's playing a song. That's all. He'll be okay.
Carly: How does he know it? That wedding in Montana must seem like a lifetime ago to a kid.
Mike: Kids remember things you'd never expect them to. Besides, he's been thinking about Jack. The song probably popped up in his head.
Carly: Mike, he doesn't read music. He's never had a lesson in his life.
Mike: So maybe he's got good ears. I don't know. You have a budding virtuoso on your hands. It'll be okay. You want me to call Hal or Holden to come and get you? I hate the idea of you going alone to the church.
Carly: No, no. No, I'll be fine. I'll be home as soon as I can. Okay?
Mike: Take your time. You need this.
Carly: No, I don't need this. This service was not my idea.
Mike: Then do what you have to do. But don't worry about us. Parker, tell your Mom we'll be fine.
Parker: We'll be fine, Mom.
Carly: I wish I could get him to do that. All right, sweetie. I'll see ya soon. Okay?
Carly: Mike, thank you. I don't know what I would have done today -- or a lot of days, lately -- without you.
Mike: It's what friends are for. Whatever you need, I'm here. What?
Carly: That's what Jack used to say.
Jack: You're saying all the right things, Julia. But come on, you're a nurse. You gotta be thinking, "this guy should be remembering more by now," right?
Julia: I'm really not, Jack. There are no rules.
Jack: I look in the mirror and I don't know who that guy is looking back at me. What kind of person he is.
Julia: He's a good guy.
Jack: Yeah? You're sure about that?
Julia: I am. Yes. Some things can't be erased. I can see it in your eyes, Jack, the way you are with JJ.
Jack: Yeah, okay. Julia, if I'm such a good guy, why is nobody looking for me? Have you thought about that?
Julia: Yes, I have. And, you know, you -- you could be on vacation, and they don't even know you're missing yet. Or they could be looking, but not in the right place. I mean, you know, it's not likely that you're from around here.
Jack: I went through every single name in that phone book looking for something familiar. Anything. And I know it's not going to do me much good, seeing I can't remember my own address, but --
J.J.: You don't you know where you live? That's easy. I learned that in like, pre-school.
Jack: Yeah, listen. JJ, the thing is, I -- I think I was in some kind of accident.
J.J.: Like a car wreck?
J.J.: You don't know?
Jack: Nope. And somebody found me and they brought me to your mom's hospital. And the doctors there -- they took really good care of me. They gave me medicine and taped up my broken ribs. And I'm healing okay, but my head was hurt, too. And that's still not better. There's stuff I can't remember.
J.J.: Like Patrick!
J.J.: On "Spongebob," when he got hit on the head with a coconut and he couldn't remember his name or anything. Did you see that one?
Jack: I -- well --
J.J.: You don't remember! Duh. Sorry. Don't worry, I have the tape. We'll see what Patrick did.
Julia: Hey, wait a minute. You gotta go to bed!
Julia: We just learned something else about you, thanks to JJ. You have a great laugh.
Ben: I shouldn't have said that. About being raped.
Jessica: You're hurt and you're angry and you have every right to be. Is there anything that I could say right now that you would listen to? Please? There was no "affair" with Doc. It was -- it was just that one time. I was in a strange, dark place -- I don't know. I was out of my mind with trying to get pregnant. And I was pushing to make it happen, and I was pushing you. I was frustrated and angry and hating myself and -- and it happened.
Ben: That's it? That has got to be the most pathetic explanation I have ever heard. You think that changes the facts? You're my wife. You made love to another man. Tell me something, Jessica. If I hadn't had Walker run those genetic tests, would you have ever told me the truth? What am I thinking? The woman was ready to let me raise another man's child as my own! Why wouldn't she let me mourn him?
Jessica: But, in my heart it was your child, Ben. In my heart --
Ben: Not in your body! The baby that was growing wasn't mine. I will never forgive you for that, Jessica.
Parker: No! When you get to the dungeon, you're supposed to hit reset.
Parker: That's what Jack does.
Mike: You really miss him, don't you?
Mike: Yeah, your mom misses him, too.
Parker: I hear her crying sometimes, when I wake up during the night.
Mike: It's hard when moms are sad.
Parker: I keep telling her, Jack's coming home.
Mike: You know what, Parker? Because -- because it could take a really long time, I think it makes Mom more sad to talk about it. But I have an idea.
Mike: Let's make a deal. All right, whenever you think about Jack and you want to say something, you can call me. Anytime. All right? We'll talk about Jack as much as you want. Can we try that?
Mike: All right. Let's write down my cell number. Do you have a piece of paper, a special place where you can keep it?
Parker: I have a "Spongebob" notebook, where I -- Jack gave it to me. That's where I keep my important notes.
Mike: Sounds like the place.
Parker: I'll go get it.
Mike: All right.
Parker: It won't make you sad to talk about Jack?
Mike: Not a bit. He's my friend.
Parker: Mine, too.
J.J.: I couldn't find the "Spongebob" tape, but we have other tapes. Or we could read or --
Julia: Wait a minute! Okay, listen, honey -- Jack's still not feeling great, and you need to get to bed.
J.J.: Aww, Lom --
Julia: "Aww, Mom --" no, I don't want to hear it. You go brush your teeth -- all of them, even the back ones. Put your PJs on and wash your face, okay.
Jack: If it's one thing I do remember, it's that moms rule the nest. You gotta do it, buddy. Come on.
Julia: Thanks. I'm sorry. He's -- yeah, he hasn't had a man's attention for a really long time.
Jack: No, no, please. Please. He's a great kid. I -- I like being around him. It feels -- it feels natural.
Barbara: Honey, its Mom. Don't hang up. This is my one phone call.
Jennifer: Then you wasted it.
Barbara: Jen, please, honey. You need to come down here. I need you.
Jennifer: I'm at a memorial service.
Jennifer: I have to go.
Barbara: Don't abandon me! Jennifer, I just Ė
Holden: I want to thank everybody for coming today. I'm sure Jack would appreciate it. Most of you who knew Jack -- Jack loved a good party. All of you would have been his favorite guests. Today is hardly a party, but I think what we should all try to do, if we can, is try to celebrate the life of Jack Snyder.
Naomi: I told you that man was a pig. Well, now look at this mess. I'll have to get that girl to come up here and vacuum all over again.
Dusty: Oh, I got you, Montgomery.
Announcer: Coming up on "As the World Turns," --
Carly: I will love you forever.
Jack: "To Jack, forever."
Dusty: There's something I have to tell you.
Craig: -- Most of us in this room.
Nikki: You have a visitor.
Barbara: Oh honey, you came!
Nikki: You sure you can do this?
Barbara: Of course she is.
Jennifer: I'm fine.
Barbara: That girl always hated me. Doesn't matter. You're here. And that's all that counts. Now, listen. You have to call the lawyers right away. You need to make them push for this arraignment as soon as possible. And then they have to set bail. I don't care what it is 'cause we'll make it. If there's not enough in my personal account, then we'll just take funds from B.R.O.'s account. I'm not going to spend the night in this jail, but, of course, Paulís going to have to sign the release forms for that.
Jennifer: Is that it?
Barbara: Well, for now, yes. If you can handle Paul, I'll have the attorneys handle everything else.
Jennifer: Actually, Paulís out of town. Not that it matters.
Barbara: Well, it does. It does. I need his signature.
Jennifer: Mother, I have no intention of helping you. As far as I'm concerned, they can lock you up here and throw away the key.
Holden: There wasn't anything Jack wouldn't do for me. I could always count on him. And if anybody ever needed anything, Jack was the guy to go to. But you all know that. Even when it came to picking up the check, Jack would be down to his last ten bucks, and he'd still say that your money was no good. He was the most generous man that I knew. He just loved helping people, even with the little things.
Jack: Hey, Julia, you have a crescent wrench or something?
Julia: Jack, what are you doing? You should be resting. You don't have to do that.
Jack: I know. I want to.
Holden: In the end, it was that big, generous spirit that filled the room that I think everyone responded to. And that is what I hope to keep alive for Carly, for Parker, for Sage and for my kids.
Margo: Whatever it was, if you were passionate about it, Jack was -- he'd go for it. He always had your back. He had my back for eight years. He never let me down. I wish I could say the same. Fortunately, Jack always forgave mistakes. He was -- he always understood. I'll miss that.
Hal: And so then, they tell me, "Weíve got a fed coming on board." And I'm thinking, "Well, this is the last thing that we need." And while I'm waiting for a blue suit with attitude to walk in, in walks this loose cannon in this leather jacket and these blue jeans. And he's mouthing off about, "well, I hear you got a lot of cases that you can't solve, and I'm here to help you solve them."
[Laughter] "Jack Snyder, Federal." And he starts talking like a cop. Now we don't really talk like cops, and we're ready to hate him. Do you remember, Jensen? Do you remember, Trixie, how much we were going to just hate this guy? But we should have known, just by the name -- Snyder. And he turned out to be a good cop. He turned out to be the best cop. And the best friend that I ever had.
Carly: I didn't plan to speak. I didn't even really want to be here today. But I'm so glad that I am. Thank you all. It's been -- hard with the children -- and everything, you know. But everywhere I've turned, I've seen nothing but people holding out their hands and their hearts, offering me anything they can. And whenever I feel like I'm about to slip into a black hole, I can see your hands, reaching out to me. Because of Jack. Because you know what I've lost. We can never fill the hole that's been left, but we will try. Because he would. All the good in my life -- all the good in me came because Jack Snyder loved me. And I will spend the rest of my life spreading that good around because he did. I love you, Jack. I will love you forever.
Jack: "To Jack, forever."
Jessica: Ben, I love you. There's nothing else I can say that makes any sense except that I love you so much. And I want to spend the rest of my life proving that to you, if you'll let me. It will get better. I know it doesn't seem like it now, but I swear it will get better.
Ben: We've got nothing -- no commitment. No trust. Even you can see that we have nothing. And I'm not gonna help you mourn Doc --
Jessica: Baby --
Ben: Don't! Don't touch me! You get away, you stay away from me!
Barbara: I know you're upset.
Barbara: And angry.
Jennifer: Mom, a little baby -- a sweet and innocent child -- was murdered because of you! Upset and angry don't cover it!
Barbara: I never thought that James cold kill his own grandchild. But I knew that he could kill your little brother because Will means nothing to him. He's simply a means of crushing us. And he's capable of that, you know that.
Jennifer: Only if you give him the chance.
Barbara: You don't understand.
Jennifer: No, you donít. He was going away, to solitary confinement, where wouldn't have a chance to get at anyone, ever again. It was a done deal until you decided to --
Barbara: When you're a mother, you'll understand! You'll know.
Jennifer: Here is what I know. Jordan's son is dead because you let a monster go free. You are as guilty as Stenbeck.
Minister: One final person has asked to speak tonight -- Craig Montgomery.
Craig: I see some of you are shocked to see me up here talking. Jack wouldn't be. He may not have been the quickest pony on the track, but he knew a thing or two about people. And we were buddies, in a way. We shared a passion for the people we love. And there was nothing old Jack wouldn't have done for Carly --
Dusty: Hey, there's something I have to tell you.
Craig: -- His kids. Most of you in this room. And I am proud to say that some of that meathead's compassion even spilled over onto me -- occasionally. I'll never forget him. But I will try to forgive him for leaving us too soon.
Lucy: So you weren't in Chicago on business?
Lucy: Then what's going on? Dusty?
Dusty: It's about your dad.
Jessica: Wait, Ben, no. You don't have to do this.
Ben: I'll have Curtis come by and pack a bag later.
Jessica: No, Curtis lives here, you live--
Ben: We'll get the rest of our things after we've settled in somewhere.
Jessica: Please, please, Ben -- I just lost my baby, I can't lose you too. Please, please, it can't be over, just like that, please.
Ben: You're right. It was over the day you got into Doc Reeseís bed.
Barbara: Why are you here, Jen? If you don't want to help me, you could've hung up the phone and let me rot in here. No, you're here because you know me. Inside out. And you know that even with all my faults, I would sooner die myself than let a child be hurt. If I'm guilty of anything, it's of being scared. Of not trusting the prison system to stop James when they never have before. Okay, I know I made a huge mistake. Huge. And I have to live with that the rest of my life. But do you really want to send me to prison?
Jennifer: It's not up to me.
Barbara: Oh, but honey, it is. You're the only one who has direct testimony against me.
Jennifer: I am?
Barbara: Yes. If I go to prison, it will only be because of you. Is that what you want?
Jennifer: Nobody wants to send their mother to jail.
Barbara: No, of course not.
Jennifer: What about the pilot?
Barbara: He has a criminal record, we can discredit him. You know, I was very upset. You were very upset. I don't really even remember what I said. I'm sure you don't either.
Jennifer: I remember every word. And when Tom Hughes asks me, I will tell him the truth. And now, I can tell him how you plan to get around it. You asked me what I came here for, Mother? That's what I came here for.
Julia: Someone wouldn't go to bed without saying goodnight.
Jack: Great. You saved me a trip upstairs. You ready for bed?
J.J.: I guess.
Jack: Yeah? You got your teeth brushed and you're -- washed everything. Everything Mom told you to do?
J.J.: I guess.
Jack: You guess. Well -- goodnight, J.J.
Jack: Goodnight, son.
Parker: Goodnight, Jack. Come home soon.
Emily: Ready to come home?
Hal: Yeah, I'd love to, but I've got to get down to the station and deal with Barbara.
Emily: Are you gonna be late?
Hal: Probably. Don't wait up.
Holden: So that's why I told Lily. About the kiss.
Molly: What did she say?
Holden: She was upset, but we really didn't have much time to talk about it, because I had to get here. But we're gonna work it out.
Molly: Sure, sure. Okay. Okay. I should go.
Jordan: You look like you're gonna fall over.
Rosanna: This has been the longest day of my life.
Jordan: Why don't you let me take you home?
Rosanna: No, you should go with Jen.
Jordan: She had to leave. Why don't you let me take you to Fairwinds?
Rosanna: No, I don't want to go back there. I can't face that place.
Jordan: It's okay. We'll face it together.
Margo: So you want to go get a cup of coffee, or --
Tom: No, I gotta get over to the courthouse and start on Barbaraís arraignment.
Margo: Oh, okay, yeah.
Tom: So maybe I'll stop by tomorrow and pick up those papers.
Tom: Yeah, the separation papers. If you haven't had a chance to sign them yet, I mean, it's no big deal. I know it's a lousy time. But I'll just stop by tomorrow night.
Margo: No, I'm not gonna sign them, Tom. I'm not gonna do it. I'm not gonna give up on us.
Hal: Tom, they need you down at the station right away to start processing Barbara.
Holden: Reverend, thank you. Thank you very much for coming. Something wrong?
Molly: My car won't start.
Holden: I'll give you a lift. You can call a tow truck to pick up your car in the morning.
Molly: No, it's okay. I'll just call a cab.
Holden: Look, just let me give you a ride. My mother can take Luke home. I'll drop you off.
Molly: Holden, I just think its better if --
Holden: Molly, it's not a big deal. It's a ride, okay?
Lucy: You know, I'm done talking about this --
Dusty: We don't have to talk. Just take a look at this.
Lucy: What is it?
Dusty: It's -- I'm sorry.
Lucy: What is it?
Dusty: Its proof, it's proof. That it was your dad, not your stepdad, who had you kidnapped.
On the next "As the World Turns" --
Barbara: You've got to help me get out of this.
James: Barbara -- I'd prefer to help you help me.
Craig: Just pretend I'm not here.
Carly: Sometimes you really tick me off.
Craig: I know, it's a gift.
Dusty: And the bad guys, they didn't just draw your name from a hat. They were paid by your father to grab you.
