As The World Turns Transcript Monday 9/27/04
Proofread by Emma
Parker: Aunt Rosanna left?
Carly: Yeah. Come sit by me. I could use a little cuddle. So, how are you feeling? Did you get a nap?
Parker: No. I tried, but I kept thinking about that lady and the boy.
Carly: That's okay. You've been a real champ lately. How 'bout I go in the kitchen and I get you something gooey and sweet?
Parker: Really? Before dinner?
Carly: Mm, it'll be our secret.
Parker: I'm sorry I can't find Jack anymore.
Carly: Oh, honey -- don't be. I'm the one who should be sorry.
Carly: Well, you shared a very special connection to Jack and I pushed you to use it. I think I was being a little bit selfish.
Parker: I didn't mind.
Carly: But it was too much for you. I got very scared when you fainted like that.
Parker: I'm sorry, Mommy.
Carly: Oh sweetie -- let's make a deal, okay? Let's just put a freeze on the phrase "I知 sorry." What do you think? Okay, and speaking of freeze, why don't I go and get that cherry ice cream that you like and I'll put chocolate and nuts and bananas all over it. What do you think?
Carly: All right, you scoot upstairs and I値l bring it up to you, okay? I think it's time to put you two away -- for good.
[Carly puts the drawing of Julia and her son in the desk.]
Carly: I'm sorry.
Parker's been going through a lot. He lost somebody very important to him.
Julia: I'm sorry to hear that. Don't worry about it. You have such beautiful children.
Carly: Yeah? Thanks. Sage here I think has a smile just like her daddy.
Jack: What's a guy gotta do to get a bowl of ice cream around here?
Lucy: You can hang around out a little while longer, right? Dusty should be back any minute.
Ethan: You got anything else to eat?
Lucy: I'll see what I can do. Hey. What happened when you went to the gym?
Dusty: I must have looked at half a dozen flyweights. No luck.
Lucy: Well, then, it's a good thing you have me. Meet your new fighter. Ethan Cobb.
Dusty: You a flyweight?
Ethan: Depends on my last meal.
Dusty: Where you find this guy?
Lucy: The internet.
Alison: Chris, it's your turn. You're supposed to say something.
Tom: Nerves -- brother, do me a favor -- if you feel like you're gonna pass out, would you fall the other way?
Reverend: Your reply is "I do." I'll repeat the question. Do you, Christopher Hughes, take Alison Stewart to love and to honor --?
Chris: I'm sorry, I知 sorry.
Alison: No, it's okay. You just have to let him finish the question.
Chris: Alison -- this isn't what I wanted.
Alison: Chris, you didn't mess up. And I thought I was nervous.
Chris: No, you don't understand. I did mess up. And if we go through with this, I'm gonna mess up your life even more.
Carly: Hi, Rosanna.
Rosanna: I'm back.
Carly: Yeah, is everything all right?
Rosanna: Yes and no. I couldn't stop thinking about what you're going through. And, obviously, Emma couldn't either, because when I got home, I found this plate of cookies with a little note asking me to please bring them to you.
Carly: Oh, that's sweet. You didn't have to come all the way back over here.
Rosanna: Well, yes, I did. Because I hate you thinking that you're not allowed to hope anymore.
Carly: I'm not giving up hope. I'm just gonna stop this search for Jack.
Rosanna: Is there a difference? Carly, I don't mean to upset you, but you haven't put this sketch away. That means you're having second thoughts.
Carly: What if Jack really is with that woman and that little boy?
Rosanna: Then it would be a shame not to circulate that picture as much as possible. We could take it to Lucinda and have her to publish it.
Carly: I can't do that. I'd get 900 crank phone calls. Or worse, some nutcase would come up on my doorstep again. How do I justify doing that to Parker? To myself?
Rosanna: Do you remember when Cabot was taken away from me the first time? And everybody told me that I should give up looking for him. And I couldn't, because every moment without him was painful, so I kept trying.
Carly: I know.
Rosanna: And I searched and I searched until I found him. And that moment when I had him in my arms -- we both knew that I was been right to not to give up looking. And even though things ended in the horrible way that they did, having my child back for just a little while was worth every moment that I spent searching for him. And it's the same with you and Jack. You have to keep looking.
Carly: And Parker?
Rosanna: Well, we'll just keep him out of it. He's a child, he should be protected. But as long as you have one shred of evidence, you can't give up.
Julia: I keep dropping things. I don't know what's wrong with me.
Jack: Well, maybe some leftover nerves from the wedding. It's not every day you get married.
Julia: Or your ex shows up.
Jack: Listen, I took a vow this afternoon to love and honor you. That means I知 not gonna let anything bad happen to you. What is going on? I'll keep you safe, you and J.J. both. I just hope that I can be as good a Dad as you are a Mom.
Julia: You're already a great Dad.
Jack: Yeah, well, being there for him feels natural. You and J.J., you just feel right to me, that's all. What -- hey, you're not having buyer's remorse already, are you? I mean --
Julia: No. I'm sorry, no. It's not you, honey. I just -- I just keep worrying, I can't stop --
Jack: About what?
Julia: Same old thing. You know, about your past.
Jack: Come on, I'm a clean slate, remember? The only thing Jack Jackson has now is a bright future with his wife and little boy. Honey, we're a family now.
Julia: But what if there's another family, Jack? What if there's another family that you don't remember?
Dusty: You went on the internet to find me a fighter?
Lucy: Yeah. Golden gloves finalist, 2002. 17 amateur fights. All wins, right, Ethan?
Ethan: 15 TKOs.
Lucy: That's "technical knockouts."
Dusty: I'll take --
Lucy: What do you think? Pretty resourceful, right?
Dusty: I think you're killing me, you know that?
Lucy: Why, 'cause you think I don't know how to pick a winner?
Dusty: No, it's not that. It's just that, when did you become such an expert on fighting?
Lucy: Okay. Why don't you just give him a try? See what he's made of? You can thank me later.
Dusty: Well, let's see if he can fight first. If he can fight, I値l thank you all night.
Lucy: I'll make sure it's a very long night.
Alison: Chris, I need to know why?
Chris: Look, Alison, I am not doing this to you, okay? You are an amazing girl, and you deserve better than this. You are gonna make some guy very happy.
Alison: What does that mean? I don't want another guy! I want you! I want to marry you! Please -- please, give me the truth! I need the truth! What did I do? What did I do?
Chris: You didn't do anything. It was me.
Susan: Alison -- Alison stop. Sweetie.
Bob: Friends, I知 sorry, but it appears that there isn't going to be a wedding today.
Susan: You despicable jerk! There is no excuse for what you've done! And to think some people didn't think you were good enough for my daughter? My daughter was good enough for you!
Alison: Is there payback for lying about the baby?
Chris: No, no, no. God, no, Alison. I loved you. I still love you, I just can't marry you.
Bob: Look, this isn't doing anybody any good.
Reverend: Perhaps the couple would like to talk in private. You can use the anteroom.
Bob: That's a good idea.
Chris: Whatever Alison wants.
Alison: I want to get married! I want to -- no, I need to talk! I need to understand why!
Emily: I'll go with you, sweetie.
Alison: No, I need to talk alone!
Aaron: Don't even bother talking to her unless you finally tell her the truth. She deserves it.
Chris: Alison, if you want to hit me, go ahead.
Alison: I just want to know the truth, Chris. I need to know why. Is there someone else?
Carly: Parker is so fragile right now, so exhausted from looking for Jack. When he collapsed like that, that really shook me up, you know? And I'm afraid -- I'm afraid if there's just one more thing, he might break.
Rosanna: Well, maybe it's the not knowing that's the most difficult for him.
Carly: Oh, I think it is. But how do I reassure him. He asks me every day if I think we'll ever see Jack again. He tells me that he feels him moving farther and farther away, and he's worried that I'm not doing enough to bring him home. Well, how long do I push and search and hope? How do I know when it's time to give up? How do I find that balance?
Rosanna: Well, maybe balance is overrated. Maybe you have to go out on a limb to find the thing that you're looking for. You know, it's like that sketch though that you haven't put away. There's something inside you that isn't ready to give up. Because if you give up now, you're going to wonder. For the rest of your life, you're gonna wonder and regret. And how is that going to be for a sensitive child like Parker to deal with?
Carly: Hell. For him to know that his mother thinks that Jack is still out there, that believes that he might come home.
Rosanna: And isn't doing anything about it. And he'll feel for the rest of his life that something isn't right.
Carly: Thank you I'm glad you came back. And will you do me a favor and just watch those little kids for me? While I bring this sketch to Lucinda.
Rosanna: Yeah, don't think twice about it.
Jack: Julia, we've worked through this already, haven't we? I mean, why would I go back to a wife who tried to kill me?
Julia: You know, Jack, the mind can play tricks. Maybe that wasn't the whole memory. I mean --
Jack: Who plays third on J.J.'s little league team? Third base, hot corner? Third base? Corey Baker. He told you that last week. You see, nobody remembers everything. As far as I'm concerned, I致e settled the question of my former wife once and for all.
Julia: Hey, what if you were married more than one time, Jack? It's possible. Are you sure that you don't have any memories of, you know, family?
Jack: You know, one does spring to mind -- a beautiful, persistent brunette with a son about, oh, yah high. Yeah, we all dance together at this fabulous wedding. You and J.J., you're my family now. The only one I remember, the only one I want.
Julia: I love you.
Jack: I love you.
Julia: And he does, too, so much. Which is why it would be really hard if someone showed up at the door and --
Jack: Shh. Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. Stop. Honey, feel this. This is home now, and no one is gonna take me away from that. Oh, honey, you're my sweetheart forever. Forever and ever.
There is something written. "To Jack, forever."
Jack: Come here. Come here, come here, come here, come here.
Jennifer: Mike, I like to dance. Do you?
[Mike remembering dancing with Katie]
Mike: I'm not much of a dancer, I知 afraid.
Henry: Aw. I, however, am known far and wide for my ability to trip the light fantastic. Would you care to try me on?
Nikki: Maybe we should find a table first.
Mike: There's an empty one right over here. Come on.
Nikki: You read my mind.
Henry: All right. So, I'll get us some drinks.
Mike: Nothing with olives, Henry.
Henry: Okay. Two bottles of your finest champagne, please. Okay. All right, Henry, that's -- that's funny. I seem to have misplaced my wallet.
Bartender: They're open. So unless you want to wash dishes --
Henry: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I remember, I left it in the houndstooth. I'll pop home, I値l get it. I'll be right back.
Bartender: Where have I heard that one before?
Henry: No, no, no, no. Wait, no, no, it's an honest mistake. I'll be right back. Um -- you see that gorgeous brunette over there? She's my collateral.
Bartender: Nikki Munson is your date?
Henry: Yeah. Eat your heart out. So you can understand why maybe I don't her to find out about this. Just give me a sec. I'll go home, I'll get the money, and I値l come back and pay the bill. Please?
Bartender: If you don't come back, I'm having your date put an APB on you, man.
Henry: Oh. Okay, that's good.
Chris: I'm sorry.
Alison: Stop it! Stop saying you're sorry!
Chris: Alison, I'm sorry I let things go so far.
Alison: Things go so far? What does that mean? What does that mean? Chris, just tell me the truth! Okay, please? If it's somebody else, I need to know! Please!
Chris: Look, it doesn't mean that I don't love you, because I do, okay? You have to believe that. But it's just --
Alison: So then it's true! There's another woman?
Hal: Well, almost everybody's gone.
Margo: I called Lisa. She canceled the reception at the Lakeview.
Susan: Thank you, Margo.
Hal: I've got Nancy in my car, Bob. I'll drop her off, since you'll probably want to take care of things here.
Margo: So what now, Emily, now that Chris is free?
Emily: Margo. Chris and I -- I壇 like to say we're over, but you know what? It never really existed, so I can't. I love my husband. I adore him. You've got to believe that.
Margo: It doesn't matter what I believe. What about Chris? Does he think that ending it with Alison opens the field for the two of you?
Emily: He couldn稚.
Margo: How do you know? You couldn't have predicted what he did up there on the altar. How do you know that he's not back there right now telling Alison that he wants to be with you?
Chris: It doesn't matter.
Alison: It matters to me! I deserve to know who wrecked our marriage before it even started!
Chris: That -- that's not what I知 trying to make you understand, okay? This person, she wasn't responsible for what happened.
Alison: She broke us up!
Chris: No, Alison, I did, okay? I try to make it work, but I couldn't.
Alison: Will you just tell me the slut's name!
Chris: Look, don't call her that, please?
Alison: How can you stand there and defend the woman you cheated on me with?
Chris: Ali, we never slept together, okay? We never crossed that line. We --
Alison: How can you be in love with someone you never even slept with?
Chris: We didn't plan on falling in love, okay? We didn't plan on doing anything, but it wasn't her fault. So please -- please don't blame her.
Emily: You told her?
Alison: Oh, my God, it's you. Chris is in love with you!
Announcer: Coming up on "As the World Turns" --
Rosanna: Are you gonna go find the sketch artist?
Carly: No, but I know what I have to do now.
Dusty: There's a lot about this business that you don't understand yet.
Lucy: He's fantastic. What am I missing?
Emily: Alison, listen to me, honey.
Alison: You're the reason that he won't marry me?
Chris: Alison, we never meant to hurt you.
Alison: Oh, what a load of bull!
Emily: No, just -- would you let me talk, okay? Nothing happened between me and Chris.
Alison: Spare me! All those times that I thought you two were planning some surprise for my wedding -- well, I guess I got it, didn't I?
Emily: No, honey, it wasn't like that. It wasn't like that.
Alison: Emily, you helped me get ready this morning. You said all of those incredible things, and then you stood there next to me, knowing that he was gonna ditch me!
Emily: No, I didn't know that. I swear. I begged him not to mention this.
Alison: You begged him?! So you two talked about me behind my back?! What were you doing? What were you doing, laughing about how clueless I was? "Break it to her gently, Chris. You know how -- how fragile she is, how unstable she is!"
Chris: Alison, your sister loves you. I --
Alison: In what universe?!
Emily: Please, Chris, let us talk. Ali and I need to talk this through.
Alison: I don't have anything to talk about with either of you ever again.
Susan: Is everything all right?
Emily: Alison, please, just --
Alison: Don't you touch me! Everybody just stay away from me!
Emily: Alison -- Alison, wait.
Lucinda: Hi. Has anyone seen Lucy Montgomery this evening?
Jordan: Hi, Jennifer. How are you?
Jordan: I was hoping maybe we could talk for a minute.
Jennifer: About what? We've already said everything and then some.
Jordan: Jen, we loved each other. Doesn't that mean anything to you? If you think I知 just gonna let this all fall apart, you're wrong? I'm not gonna do that.
Jennifer: You don't get the last word on this, Jordan. Sorry. I love this song. Let's dance.
Jordan: That went well.
Nikki: If you're looking for sympathy, call your shrink, okay? As far as I'm concerned, you blew it big time.
Jordan: Right. Thanks for the support.
Lucinda: I'd ask you to dance, but tongues might wag. Should I buy you a drink instead?
Rosanna: Hey. What happened?
Carly: The sketch just -- it just blew right out of my hands. I tried to chase after it, but I -- it's like everything I do, every lead I have just flies away, just like that sketch.
Rosanna: Come on, now. Don't read too much into it. We'll just call the sketch artist and have her make you another.
Carly: No, I think maybe this is some kind of sign. You know, maybe the universe is telling me to back off.
Parker: I can't sleep.
Carly: Oh, why don't you go up and pick out a book, and I'll come up and read it to you, okay? What's that?
Parker: Jack's compass. I don't need it anymore.
Rosanna: What is it?
Carly: Oh, would you mind reading to Parker?
Rosanna: No, not at all, not at all. You're gonna go find the sketch artist?
Carly: No, but I know what I have to do now.
Jack: That's more like it. What? Julia, you've got to talk to me. What's got you spooked all of the sudden?
Julia: You know, I think I've lived in fear for so long, and it's just gotten to be second nature.
Jack: Yeah, I know, I know, but you're just gonna have to learn to live without it. I kicked your ex out so he wouldn't hurt you and J.J. anymore, and as long as I've got breath in my body -- let me tell you something -- you don't have to worry about him or anybody else. You don't have to worry about anything.
Julia: We don't really know that, Jack, until you get your memory back completely.
Jack: Well, you know, who's the one who has amnesia here, 'cause obviously, you're forgetting that this is our wedding night, little miss happy. Now, as much as I like ice cream -- I love ice cream -- but I want you back in the bedroom while we still have the house to ourselves. Come on!
Julia: Jack --
Jack: No Jack nothing, Mrs. Jackson. We've got some honeymooning to do. Come on, please.
Lucy: Yeah, that's right. Keep them coming, Ethan. Yeah, no. Good move. Whoa, show him what you've got.
Dusty: All right, that's it. Hit the shower. You, too, Ethan. I'll talk to you later, all right?
Lucy: Didn't I tell you we have a winner?
Dusty: You're looking for a pigeon.
Dominic: Worthy challenger.
Dusty: Someone with more brawn than brain matter, someone who will make your boy look good, right?
Dominic: It'd be a clean fight.
Dusty: How about a fair fight?
Dominic: Life is rarely fair. It's a sad lesson we all learn.
Lucy: We have a winner, right?
Dusty: Baby, there's a lot about this business that you don't understand yet.
Lucy: So teach me. He's fantastic. What am I missing?
Lucinda: Aren't you too smart a guy to be brooding over girls? Haven't you got something better to do?
Jordan: No, actually, not at the moment, but if you give me a job, Mrs. Walsh, maybe I'll be too busy to brood.
Lucinda: A job? You're suggesting that I invite James Stenbeck's spawn into my inner circle?
Jordan: Well, weren't you the one who lectured me about the irrelevance of biology?
Lucinda: Hey, you heard me. I'm just so flattered, you listening.
Jordan: Of course I was. So are you ready to put your money where your mouth is?
Lucinda: I do like your spirit, Mr. Sinclair. Perhaps I can find something at Worldwide. We'll see if you're up to it.
Jordan: I'll be in touch.
Mike: I told your sister I didn't dance. You think she'd forgive me?
Jennifer: I don't think she's the type to hold a grudge. Why'd you fib?
Mike: I don't know. Ever since Katie痴 been out of my life, I just haven't felt like dancing.
Jennifer: I know what you mean.
Nikki: Can I get a Cosmopolitan?
Jordan: Why don't you put that on my tab? Look, you can hate me if you want to, but at least you can let me buy you a drink.
Nikki: I don't hate you. I just don't like the way you treated my sister.
Jordan: Well, I understand that, but the situation was complicated.
Nikki: Aren't they always?
Jordan: Look, I wasn't trying to start any trouble. I just -- I just wanted to talk to her, that's all.
Nikki: Can't always get what we want.
Jordan: Maybe not, but Jennifer痴 gonna have to get used to seeing me around, because I'm not going anywhere.
Susan: Do you see what you've done? You've blown my entire family to smithereens! I hope you're proud of yourself!
Chris: Susan, wait, wait, wait.
Aaron: Ali -- Ali, let's get out of here.
Alison: Who else knew?! How long have I been this town's joke?
Emily: No, listen to me.
Kim: Nobody is laughing at you.
Emily: Please don't say anything else. Don't say anything else.
Hal: Oh, Tom, Casey forgot his keys. Did I miss something?
Alison: You think that my sister, that she changed 'cause you married her? Think again. She's still as big a slut as ever.
Susan: Aaron, go with her. She shouldn't be alone.
Hal: What's she laying into you for?
Bob: You were the other woman?
Kim: What other woman?
Margo: We should let Emily and Hal have some time alone. Hal, we'll take Gram home.
Kim: Apparently, my son is not the only one to blame for this.
Hal: This is some sort of misunderstanding, right? Please, Emily, tell me it's not true.
Dusty: The guy's not what I知 looking for, that's all.
Lucy: Why not? He floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee. He's incredible. Is this because I found him and you didn't?
Lucy: Then what then? He has everything it takes to beat Dominic Ramsey痴 guy.
Dusty: Sweetheart, it's not that he's such a bad guy.
Lucy: Don't sweetheart me. Tell me the truth.
Dusty: The truth is, Ramsey痴 guy, he's supposed to be the winner, not my guy.
Lucy: I don't get it.
Dusty: There's always a winner and a loser, and my job was to find a loser.
Jennifer: Oh, sorry I had to drive mike up like that. I just -- I had to get away from Jordan.
Nikki: No problem.
Jennifer: I knew you'd understand.
Nikki: Just as long as you understand, I have dibs on Mike, okay?
Jennifer: Of course, Nikki. I never -- I never meant --
Nikki: Since we're going to be roommates, I just wanted to make sure we don't get our signals crossed.
Jennifer: Believe me, the last thing I want right now is another relationship.
Henry: Big bills? Is that all right? Great. The next round is not me. I'm sorry about that. I just had to go check the pressure in my tires.
Nikki: You were gone?
Henry: Yeah, yeah. You didn't notice?
Nikki: Yes, we noticed. We missed you, Henry.
Henry: Oh, okay. Good, thanks.
Nikki: Well, if you're getting the next round, aren't we ready?
Henry: Yeah, okay.
Emily: Hal, honey, it's not what you think.
Hal: Really? What do I think? I'll tell you what I知 thinking, Emily. I'm thinking it looks like the Chief of Detectives is the last one to know.
Alison: Why doesn't anything ever work out for me?! Is my life just a big, fat joke to you?!
Aaron: Ali? Ali, no! You don't have to do this. Chris isn't worth it.
Alison: What are you trying to do, kill me?
Aaron: I'm trying to keep you for killing yourself. You have so much to live for.
Alison: I'm not trying to drown myself, you idiot! I'm trying to drown this stupid dress! I hate it! My perfect wedding, my perfect wedding! I hate this dress! I hate it! I hate it!
Aaron: Come on, Ali. Let's just go.
Alison: I'm not staying here, but I sure as hell am not going anywhere with you.
Carly: Hey, g-man. It's me.
Carly: Hi. You were my true north, g-man. No matter how far astray we wandered, we always managed to find our way back to each other. This little compass always did its job, didn't it? But you know why I came out here? I was gonna throw it in the river. I thought maybe somehow, you would find it and use it to come back to Parker and Sage and me. But I can't let it go. It was a crazy idea anyway, right? I mean, what are the chances of you finding it, huh? But it doesn't matter, because even without it, I know deep in my heart that somehow, someway you will find your way home.
Jack: Mrs. Jackson. Paging Mrs. Jackson. Your presence is requested in the bedroom, where your husband is waiting for you. Come here.
Julia: And the wife is waiting for you.
Carly: Please come home to me, g-man. I'll be waiting. Good-bye, for now.
On the next "As the World Turns" --
Emily: I'm telling you the truth. We never had an affair.
Hal: So you've said that.
Chris: I'm in love with your wife.
Barbara: Hello, darling.
Lucy: I need to understand exactly what's going on.
Dusty: And why is that?
Lucy: Because I知 gonna be the one bailing you out when Dominic gets you thrown in jail.
