The Bold and The Beautiful Transcript Tuesday 7/25/06
Proofread by Becky
Thorne: They did a good job -- would you give me a minute, please?
Thorne: You said you'd never leave me.
Felicia: Hey --
Thorne: Hey --
Felicia: Where's Alexandria?
Thorne: Why would I want her here? How can I explain to my daughter what I don't understand myself? That someone just mowed her mother down like a dog, and had more important things to do than to stop.
Eric: The police are working on it, all right? They're going to track him down.
Thorne: Oh, he'd better hope so -- because if I find him first, then God help us both.
Hector: Taylor, Phoebe and I are accessories. Her story was in the paper. I lied in my report, my sworn statement to the police.
Taylor: You really think a little more guilt is going to keep me in line?
Phoebe: Mom, if you go to jail, I don't care what happens to me.
Taylor: You know, Hector, you really have to stop putting phoebe in the middle of this, okay? My brother-in-law had maybe the only perfect marriage I've ever known. And my little niece, she only knew the world through her mother. This isn't a legal issue to me, you know? I can't be worrying about whether or not I'm a criminal. I'm somebody who loves those two people, and they have a right to know why they will never see that beautiful woman again. Phoebe, you're driving. Fine, I'll take a cab.
Hector: Do you think my heart doesn't go out to that family? But I see no sense in destroying another one. Do you?
Taylor: I'm going. With or without you.
Stephanie: I wasn't sure if you were going to come.
Taylor: Oh, yes, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Well, you've been so angry with me -- with everybody, I mean -- but family's family, isn't it?
Taylor: And right is right.
Thorne: I owe you an apology.
Taylor: Oh, Thorne --
Thorne: That first morning that you showed up at the house, I was half out of my head, and I was awful to you.
Taylor: Oh, please, no --
Thorne: But the truth is, Taylor, if you hadn't shown up, I would've lost it. I would've busted up the place -- I don't know. I found Alexandria's video, and I couldn't help myself, so -- it was Darla looking so --
Taylor: So -- so beautiful.
Taylor: And so loving you.
Minister: Let us pray. O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered, accept our prayers on behalf of your servant, Darla. Grant her an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of your saints, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Ridge: If I wasn't Darla's least favorite person in the world, I should've been. I didn't think she was smart enough or strong enough to travel with our pack. The weirdest thing about all this was that I knew I was wrong. I was jealous -- jealous of what she and my brother had. Of her devotion to him -- of how happy they were -- they just made it seem so easy.
Stephanie: Sometimes in life, we are fortunate enough to meet the real thing. It's someone who is genuinely kind and generous in spirit, who just shines with goodness and love. One day, god smiled -- and my son, Thorne, was fortunate enough to meet Darla. Thorne's wife completed him in every way -- spiritual and carnal -- completed him with their child, and began their child's journey down the path of life. She's gone, honey, but just for a short while. She waits. She watches over you and Alexandria. Honor her -- her love for you -- by living the rest of your life with joy. She would want you to do that. She was the real thing.
Sally: My name is Sally Spectra, and I am a selfish old broad, and you might as well know that. I ask myself how I can be thinking about myself at a time like this? But I am. I'm thinking of myself and my beautiful girls. My daughter Macy, my precious Darla, and they're both gone. And I will never see their sweet smiles again. Oh, Lord -- what on earth were you thinking? I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Minister: Is there anyone else?
Taylor: It's so strange now -- it horrifies me in a way I can't even begin to describe that Darla's gone from us -- I know that Darla loved me. She even came -- and she said that to me the night before she died. At a time when I needed to hear those words the most, she was the one person who came to me and she said that to me. But didn't she do that for all of us? She made us feel good about ourselves. She always lifted our spirits when we were feeling down. She had the best sense of humor. She made us realize that we have special qualities that are worth living for, even when we feel like there isn't any hope left. She never judged anyone. She just loved without expecting anything in return. That's the reason she died, because she was helping my daughter when she was feeling afraid and she was alone. And when I hold myself up in the light, I'm ashamed. Now I know what my task is -- to be the woman she saw in me.
Thorne: Thank you for that. Thank all of you, for your words today. And I want to thank you for your love and your support, but I especially want to thank you for reminding me today that my wife -- in her own quiet way -- was -- was very special. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Stephanie: Come on, honey. It's okay.
Minister: "Into your hands, o Lord, we commend your servant Darla. May her soul, and the souls of the departed, with God's mercy, rest in peace."
Hector: Hey, I've got to get back to the station. You'll take care of your mom?
Phoebe: Lieutenant Baker wouldn't stop looking at us.
Taylor: Let him look. It's his job.
Ridge: Hey. Are you all right? I've been worried about you, your drinking.
Taylor: I've got a handle on it. Really, I do.
Ridge: Okay, good. We haven't had a lot of time to spend as a family recently. I thought maybe we could do something this afternoon.
Ridge: You wouldn't mind?
Taylor: No, I think that would be good. Why don't you go ahead and take the kids with you now, though?
Ridge: Okay. Come on, kids.
Phoebe: Mom, I can't go with dad, I have to drive you home!
Taylor: Just let me wait 'til everybody else leaves. I need to take a cab, okay?
Lt. Baker: Nice service.
Taylor: Yeah, it was good of you to come.
Lt. Baker: I was hoping to have another talk with your daughter.
Taylor: Oh, I'm afraid she's all ready gone home.
Lt. Baker: Another time, then. Sad -- tragic, really.
Thorne: You're still here? Can I ask you something? It's Alexandria -- my daughter --
Thorne: I haven't told her yet. She still thinks that mommy is sick and that she's going to come home from the hospital, and -- I just can't seem to look in her little face --
Taylor: You just can't find the words.
Taylor: The most important thing you -- have to tell her or anyone -- and you just don't know how.
Thorne: Yeah. Will you help me? I mean, I know I don't have the right to ask, but -- Taylor, will you come home with me and sit with her and help me make her understand?
Taylor: Whatever you need. Yes, I'll do that.
Taylor: Now -- and for the rest of my life. Anything -- I mean that, anything.
