General Hospital Transcript Friday 2/4/83


Provided By Suzanne

(Holly agrees to marry Robert so she won’t be deported; Luke recovers from surgery; Susan is outraged when she discovers Scotty’s interference with baby Jason’s investments; Blackie finds a place to hide Lou.)

Lou: Who is it?

Blackie: It's me, it's Blackie. Please let me in.

Lou: You know, this place is the pits.

Blackie: Oh, we didn't have time to check in a class hotel.

Lou: Yeah, funny.

Blackie: Well, you made it through the night, didn't you?

Lou: Yeah, but I've got to get out of here.

Blackie: Kid, the trouble you're in, you've got no place to go.

[Knock on door]

Holly: Who is it?

Rose: It's rose, can I come in?

Holly: Sure, uh... just a minute.

Rose: A spot of tea and a bit of toast this morning, dear?

Holly: Oh, you didn't have to do that.

Rose: Somebody's got to take care of you, because you're not doing it yourself.

Holly: You're so thoughtful, thank you.

Rose: Well, sit down, have it before it gets cold, you know, it's been so cold out, it's nice to have something hot in the morning, you know. Here you go. What's with the suitcase?

Holly: I'm packing.

Rose: Hey, if you need another bureau, I can get you--

Holly: No, it's not that, I'm leaving.

Rose: What? Why? What happened?

Holly: I'm being deported.

Nurse: Hello, Mr. Doe. How do you feel today? Well, you're looking better. Doctor Rochelle thinks your surgery was a great success.

Luke: Congratulate dr. Rochelle for me. Tell him I can't walk.

Nurse: Do you mind answering a few questions?

Luke: Why not? I've got a lot of time.

Nurse: Do you have any insurance?

Luke: No.

Nurse: Medical plan?

Luke: No.

Nurse: Are you vested in a pension fund?

Luke: No.

Nurse: Or do you have any available money to pay for your hospital and surgical bills?

Luke: No.

Nurse: Then I guess you're a charity case.

Luke: No. No charity, I'll pay my own way.

Nurse: How do you plan on doing that?

Lou: This place stinks. I'm going crazy.

Blackie: You've got some place better in mind?

Lou: Yeah, there's got to be, much better than this hole.

Blackie: Well, at least the food is good here.

Lou: Oh, right, yeah! If you like moldy cold cuts, and then stale bread. You know, I'm a human being! I need something hot, like-- like a burger, some soup or something.

Blackie: Yeah, well, I thought about that, but by the time I got over here probably it'd be cold, don't you think?

Lou: Yeah, yeah, that's another thing, there's no heat in this dump!

Blackie: I told you it was going to be like that from the beginning, all right? And this dump used to be my home.

Lou: Yeah, what was your mother? A cockroach or something?

Blackie: My mother's dead.

Lou: You told me last night. I'm sorry.

Blackie: All right.

Lou: It's just that I can't stand being cooped up in this place.

Blackie: Well, why don't you get out of here, all right? The door's right there, I ain't going to stop you.

Lou: How do I know?

Blackie: Because I just told you! And what would I want with you, anyway? You're just a big hassle, that's all you are.

Lou: Yeah, well, I still don't trust you.

Blackie: Why don't you just get back out on the streets, huh? Here, I'll give you a hand. All right, fine, you're a big girl, you can handle yourself.

Lou: After you get me some more food.

Blackie: Ok, all right, ok.

Lou: And make it hot! I'm freezing in here.

Blackie: All right.

Rose: Terrific, so you're just going to go without telling anyone.

Holly: There's no point!

Rose: So you just walk out of our lives, just like that?

Holly: I don't have any choice, they gave me 24 hours.

Rose: Who?

Holly: The immigration department, they're sending me back to England.

Rose: But why?

Holly: It doesn't matter, they've made their decision and there's no fighting it.

Rose: Look, there's got to be something you can do.

Holly: Well, I could stay if I married Robert.

Rose: What?

Holly: As the wife of an American citizen, they couldn't deport me.

Rose: And he asked you?

Holly: Only out of a sense of duty. As Luke's best friend, he feels that he should do that. I won't let him, I'm not going to let him ruin his life.

Rose: Now, wait, wait, what is all this talk about ruining lives? All right, come on, who put that idea into your head?

Holly: Does it matter?

Rose: Yes, it does matter, because it's simply not true. If Robert asked you to marry him it's because he wants to.

Holly: I've made up my mind, I'm going back to England.

Rose: Ok, look, you've made up your mind, but, holly... have you really thought this thing through thoroughly?

Holly: There's nothing more to think about.

Rose: Well, at least tell Robert.

Holly: Yeah, I will, and Bobbie and ruby, but you got to help me with that.

Rose: Yeah, I'll come, I'll get him to come over here.

Holly: No, no, I want to write them a note.

Rose: Oh, holly, that's not--

Holly: It's--it's better this way, we've all been through so much already.

Rose: But your leaving like this--

Holly: I must do it this way, you've got to promise me that you'll give it to them after I've left.

Rose: Holly...

Holly: Please.

Rose: You're determined to do this, aren't you?

Holly: Yes.

Rose: Ok, ok. Write your notes.

Holly: Thank you.

Rose: I'll just... I'll just wait for you downstairs.

Holly: I won't be long.

Rose: Ok.

Luke: No, no way, no way, I'll pay--I'll pay the bills.

Nurse: But you tell me you have no insurance, no medical plan, no pension and welfare benefits, and no money... do you mind telling me how you intend to pay for it?

Luke: But just don't worry about it, I'll pay for it.

Nurse: [Chuckles] I'm not worried about it, the hospital is. See, you require medical attention, and they're willing to provide that, but their staff gets paid regularly, they, uh, have to purchase their supplies, there's upkeep and maintenance for the grounds, there are utility bills--

Luke: Oh, please, please, nurse, stop, you're breaking my heart.

Nurse: Well, since you won't be able to take care of yourself and you acknowledge no family or close friends, um, then I guess you'll just become a ward of the state.

Luke: A what?

Nurse: A ward of the state.

Luke: I don't like the sound of that.

Nurse: It's not as bad as it sounds.

Luke: Ok, I'll take your word for it.

Nurse: Of course, there--um... there may be an alternative. Are you a veteran? We might be able to pass the bills through the veterans administration, or you might even be able to qualify for a VA hospital.

Luke: I don't remember.

Nurse: [Sighs] You're not very helpful, Mr. Doe.

Luke: I am so sorry, nurse.

Nurse: If you were sorry, you would give me some answers.

Luke: Look, I'd like to, you know, I really would like to, the problem is that I am suffering from selective amnesia, which means that I remember certain things and I don't remember other things, I just forget everything that I don't want to remember.

Nurse: Uh-huh. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Luke: You tell dr. Rochelle I congratulate his surgery.

Nurse: I can tell you, you are not going to enjoy the state hospital, that is for sure. Sign here, Mr. Doe.

Susan: The Quartermaines aren't about to give us anything until they see those papers.

They'll see them.

Susan: When?


Susan: Look, since I have to turn the papers over to them, why don't you just give them to me?

Because you're not going to see them until Friday either.

Susan: You don't trust me.

Do you trust me?

[Doorbell rings]

Susan: That'll be aunt Alice. I'll be right there! Go on, get out of here, take that cup with you too.

I'll be back.

Susan: Hi.

Alice: Oh, I'm sorry, the keys must be buried in the bottom of this purse.

Susan: That's ok, I need the exercise.

Alice: Jason's not up?

Susan: No, but he was up all night long with that tooth coming in.

Alice: Oh, that's terrible.

Susan: I know. No, it hasn't bothered me too much till lately.

Alice: Well, let's keep our fingers crossed.

Susan: Yeah.

Alice: Well, I see you've already had some coffee, can I make you some breakfast?

Susan: No, no, thanks, but, uh, tell you what, once the housekeeper comes, I do have a favor I'd like to ask.

Alice: Ok, provided it's not for me to check up on her, because I think she kind of resents me, anyway.

Susan: Oh, aunt Alice, don't be silly. Besides, who cares if she does? She just works here.

Alice: You know what they say, too many women in one house.

Susan: Yeah, well, this is my house, and if she gives you a hard time I want you to tell me.

Alice: What's this favor I can do for you?

Susan: I'd like you to take me to the bank.

Alice: Do you think--I mean, do you really feel you're strong enough?

Susan: Well, sure, I mean, I can-- I'll be fine if you're with me.

Alice: Oh, look, why don't I just go and--or if you just need some cash--

Susan: No, aunt Alice, I want to cash a check.

Alice: Well, honey, I am certain they would cash a check for me.

Susan: Yeah, I'm sure they would, but actually Jason's T-bills are due today too, and I thought it would be nice to go to the bank and, you know, kind of see how that all works and-- besides, it'd be good for me to let the bank know that I'm on top of this. Would you call us a cab?

Jimmy Lee: Oh!

Rose: Jeez! Ah!

Jimmy Lee: Missed me.

Rose: I'm sorry!

Jimmy Lee: Oh, that's all right, that's ok.

Rose: No, it's not ok, can I-- can I get you something else?

Jimmy Lee: Yeah, how about, uh... those eggs?

Rose: Hmm?

Jimmy Lee: Over easy.

Rose: Oh, gosh, you ordered eggs, I forgot!

Jimmy Lee: That's all right, forget about it, forget about it, it's all right, forget about it, I don't want it, it's all right! Forget it, ok?

Rose: Ok.

Jimmy Lee: Are you ok?

Rose: No. No, I guess I'm not, if I'm forgetting orders I'm not ok.

Jimmy Lee: there anything I can do?

Rose: No, no, it's what I should do, I...

Jimmy Lee: Sounds like you're not sure.

Rose: I know what I should do, but I promised not to do it.

Jimmy Lee: That sounds confusing.

Rose: Yeah, I made a stupid promise, and it's going to be a mistake if I keep it, I just-- I can't, I can't...

Holly: Here they are.

Rose: Holly...

Holly: After I leave, you promised.

Rose: Yeah, yeah, well... when will that be?

Holly: Any minute now, but I might have time for a cup of tea, though.

Rose: Ok, you've got it.

Jimmy Lee: Good morning.

Holly: Good morning.

Jimmy Lee: You're going on a trip?

Holly: Yeah.

Jimmy Lee: Not a long one, I hope?

Holly: A very long one.

Jimmy Lee: I'm sorry to hear that. I mean, after you helped me find out this place and everything, I though we'd get a chance to get acquainted.

Rose: Here you go.

Holly: Thank you.

Rose: I wish you'd change your mind and make that phone call, I mean, the phone's right here.

Holly: I don't dare.

Mr. Farrell: Miss Sutton?

Holly: Mr. Farrell.

Mr. Farrell: You ready?

Holly: Yes. Oh, rose, I don't think I'm going to have time for that tea.

Rose: This shouldn't be happening.

Holly: I'll be all right.

Rose: You'll write me, won't you?

Holly: Yes, as soon as I can.

Rose: This is awful, I feel terrible.

Holly: Me too. But take care of yourself and don't worry about me, I'm going to be ok.

Rose: Take care. Oh, damn! Robert, get off the phone! [Grunts] Jimmy Lee, would you do me a huge favor? I've got to get out of here, would you take over for me? It'll just be a minute, I promise, I won't be long, but I've got to go.

Jimmy Lee: Yeah, don't worry about it.

Rose: Thanks.

Jimmy Lee: Hey, my first costumer.

Blackie: What are you doing back there?

Jimmy Lee: Giving it to the griddle, now, what can I get for you?

Blackie: Uh, rose, where's rose?

Jimmy Lee: She's not here, now what do you want? A burger?

Blackie: When will she be back?

Jimmy Lee: No telling.

Blackie: Great.

Jimmy Lee: What do--what do you want?

Blackie: I'll get it myself.

Jimmy Lee: No, wait a sec, wait a sec, I don't think she wants anybody back there.

Blackie: I'm not just anybody, me and rose are buddies. Now, where--wait...

Jimmy Lee: Are you sure this is ok?

Blackie: It's fine, don't worry about it, I come back here all the time.

Jimmy Lee: Ok, if you say so...

Blackie: Just got a few things to get here. Some of this, this is warm.

Jimmy Lee: Are you sure this is ok?

Blackie: It's fine, don't worry about it.

Jimmy Lee: All that? What do you need it for?

Blackie: I've got a big appetite, I'm making it for, uh--school, school lunches, that's what I'm making it for.

Jimmy Lee: Some lunch.

Blackie: Yeah, I've got a big pit for a stomach, I've got to fill it. Now, let's see--do you have a pencil on you? A pencil.

Jimmy Lee: A pencil. What do you do? Eat those too? Wait, I was doing the crossword puzzle in that.

Blackie: Yeah, ok. I've got to make rose a note. Let's see, what did I get? Bread, sandwich... milk was in there... ok, "I owe you." Give this to rose, it's an IOU. I'm a little short on cash.

Jimmy Lee: Well, I thought you were delivering flowers.

Blackie: No, I got laid off, uh... after the Christmas rush, no one buys flowers except for weddings or wakes. [Chuckles]

Jimmy Lee: Uh, are you looking for a new job or what?

Blackie: Yeah, me and fifty million other guys.

Jimmy Lee: Hmm... I tell you what, maybe... maybe I can do something for you.

Blackie: No kidding?

Jimmy Lee: Yeah. You ever do construction?

Blackie: No, but I'm a fast learner.

Jimmy Lee: All right, let me talk to my boss, and maybe he can come up with something.

Blackie: That'd be great, yeah, that-- I got school.

Jimmy Lee: Well, that's why I thought of you, you see? We're working at the university, we're renovating the student union building.

Blackie: Oh, that's right, I heard they were, uh, doing it all over and that whole thing, that'd be great, I could stop by after classes.

Jimmy Lee: Great, I'll talk to my boss and see if we can get you something.

Blackie: Yeah, I appreciate that, jimmy, thanks a lot, you're a good guy. I've got to get out. This stuff's gonna get cold. See you!

Jimmy Lee: Don't get fat!

Rose: I've been trying to call you.

Robert: Yeah, well, you and half of port Charles, everybody just loves to rap with the commissioner.

Rose: Look, I've got to talk to you, I can't catch my breath.

Robert: It's all right.

Rose: No, no, there isn't time, there's no time, you've got to help her.

Robert: Who?

Rose: Holly.

Robert: What are you talking about?

Rose: She's gone, she's gone, an immigration officer came by... and here, this is for you.

Robert: What?

Rose: Look, she didn't want to tell you, I don't know, something about you feeling obligated, but you've got to do something!

Robert: She can't go to England, she's going to be all alone there.

Rose: Look, I tried to tell her that.

Robert: She's going to be in a whole lot of danger too. I've got to stop her. This is commissioner Scorpio here, I want a squad car outside of my apartment building immediately, move it! Thanks, rose, let's just hope we're not too late.

Rose: I hear you.

Roger: Hey, sport, how are you doing today?

Luke: Who are you?

Roger: I'm roger, your physical therapist, I'm here to discuss your rehabilitation program. You know, you've got to start using that Tarzan stuff on your bed.

Luke: Ok, pal. I--I really don't want to deal with it today, all right?

Roger: All right, you just name the day, and I'll be here.

Luke: Well, how about if we don't ever deal with it and you never come back?

Roger: All right. Then why don't we talk about lying in bed till your muscles turn to jelly? Then turn to nothing. Then your whole body atrophies, and you shrivel up and die like a dried beetle... or a coward. In the words of a great philosopher, "It ain't over till it's over," and your life's not over yet, unless you decide it is. You can still live a full life.

Luke: I'm sorry, pal, that's not quite true when you're dead from the waist down.

Roger: Look, you have to develop what you've got, you have to make it mean more. And you're not going to run in any races or ride bicycles, you'll still be able to go out--

Luke: What? What am I going to be able to do? Walk, huh? Am I going to be able to ski? Am I going to be able to enjoy a woman?

Roger: There are many ways to enjoy a woman, friend, but I think it's possible that you're not man enough to understand that.

Luke: Get out of here! Get out of here or come over here!

Roger: What's that going to prove?

Luke: I don't care what it proves! It'll just make me feel a hell of a lot better!

Roger: You want to fight?

Luke: Yeah, yeah, come here!

Roger: You really want to fight?

Luke: I want to fight, yeah!

Roger: Then fight for your life! Fight for what's left! You fight to make the most of it. You know, you can either fight, or you can quit, it's strictly up to you.

Mr. Carlson: Mrs. Baldwin, what a pleasant surprise.

Susan: Hello, Mr. Carlson, I believe you know my aunt, Mrs. Grant?

Alice: Ah, no, honey, I don't think I do, how do you do?

Mr. Carlson: It's a pleasure meeting you, why don't you sit down?

Susan: Thanks.

Mr. Carlson: I hope that's comfortable.

Susan: Oh, we're just fine, thank you.

Mr. Carlson: And to what do I owe the honor, Mrs. Baldwin?

Susan: Well, I just came in to cash a check and thought I'd drop in and say hello. Actually, I want to thank you so much too for taking care of my son's money.

Mr. Carlson: Well, it's our pleasure, Mrs. Baldwin.

Susan: I can't tell you how reassuring it's been to me just knowing that that money has been in your hands. And also, since I was here, I thought I'd ask about the interest.

Mr. Carlson: The interest?

Susan: Yes, Jason's T-bills came due today, and I just wondered how much interest they'd been earning.

Mr. Carlson: I'm afraid I don't understand.

Susan: Ok... this is kind of a first time for me, so I'm not familiar with the way it all works, but, um... I am letting it roll over, and does that mean now that the money will automatically be invested in a new T-bill? Or how does that work?

Mr. Carlson: Well, you may be slightly confused, Mrs. Baldwin, Jason doesn't have any T-bills due.

Susan: Oh, of course he does, I marked it down on the calendar.

Mr. Carlson: Ah, now I understand what's happened, they would have been due today had you not sold them.

Susan: Sold them?

Mr. Carlson: Yes, you sold all those bills last week.

Susan: Mr. Carlson, there's some kind of mistake here. My son has over half a million dollars invested in those bonds. I'm telling you again, I never authorized you to sell anything.

Alice: Honey, now, don't get yourself so upset.

Susan: Didn't you hear what he said? No, there's been some sort of mistake, I never gave orders to you to do that.

Alice: Well, perhaps it slipped your mind.

Susan: I was sick, but not that sick. First of all, I would never have allowed such a thing to happen, and if I had, I certainly would remember it!

Alice: Honey, please.

Susan: All right, all right, all right. I won't get upset, I will sit, very calmly, here, while Mr. Carlson figures out his mistake.

Mr. Carlson: Mrs. Baldwin, I remember the entire transaction perfectly.

Susan: Mr. Carlson, I never authorized that.

Mr. Carlson: Not in person, no.

Susan: What do you mean, not in person?

Mr. Carlson: Well, actually it was your husband that came in. We spoke on the telephone, surely you remember.

Susan: You and I?

Mr. Carlson: Yes, last week, your husband dialed the number himself.

Susan: Mr. Carlson, I don't know what went on here, but I never talked to you on the telephone.

Mr. Carlson: Oh, yes, Mrs. Baldwin, I made a note of it. Right here.

Susan: I don't know who you talked to, but it wasn't me.

Mr. Carlson: Well, as I said, your husband dialed the number.

Susan: Yeah, I bet he dialed the number.

Alice: Honey, maybe you should wait. Talk to Scotty.

Susan: Oh, I'll talk to Scott all right, but I'd like a little more information first, suppose you tell me just what went on in this conversation that we had?

Mr. Carlson: Well, I asked you if you understood about the loss of interest.

Susan: And what did I say?

Mr. Carlson: Yes.

Susan: Uh-huh. Go on.

Mr. Carlson: I wanted to be sure that you understood all the ramifications of the transaction, so I questioned you and you answered yes every time.

Susan: And Scott, my husband, was here during the whole thing?

Mr. Carlson: Every moment.

Susan: Mm-hm. What I don't understand, Mr. Carlson, and I hope you have a real good explanation for this, is what my husband was doing here discussing my son's money in the first place.

Mr. Carlson: Well, that's his right.

Susan: It most certainly is not his right, he has no right at all to have anything to do with my son's money.

Mr. Carlson: Well, he has your power of attorney.

Susan: He had my power of attorney, I rescinded that a long time ago.

Mr. Carlson: Yes, however, you reinstated it last week.

Susan: What?

Mr. Carlson: I have a copy of the form...

Susan: Let me see that. I never signed this.

Mr. Carlson: Well, that's your signature.

Susan: This is not my handwriting, this is a forgery.

Blackie: Here, that should hold you...

Lou: I was hungry.

Blackie: Easy, easy, easy, you're going to choke yourself eating like that.

Lou: Where's the jelly?

Blackie: Inside there.

Lou: Well, where's the drink?

Blackie: That's some milk. I should have brought the whole cow. Where are you putting all this stuff?

Lou: I've got to get out of here. I can't stand this.

Blackie: What's the matter? I should have brought the comics maybe. Girl strangled on the waterfront, body identified of a teenage girl found, s--strangled. You're in big trouble, aren't you?

Robert: What do you mean it left already?

Agent: It was full and it left. What is it with you? Most people complain when the plane's late.

Robert: So when did it take off?

Agent: I said it left, not that it took off. It's taxing down the runway.

Robert: So stop it, bring it back to the gate.

Agent: I can't do that.

Robert: The name is Scorpio, and I happen to be the commissioner of police around here, now you've got ten seconds to get that plane back here, otherwise your next job is going to be in the new harbor.

Agent: Yes, sir. Right away.

Woman: These things never take off on time.

Man: I've got an important meeting in New York, a real big job.

Holly: Robert!

Robert: Get your things.

Holly: Just a minute--

Robert: I said, get your things.

Holly: But how--how--

Robert: Don't ask any questions, just do as I say.

Holly: Now, look--

Robert: Now, listen, don't give me a hard time, pal, all right? Let's get out of here--

Man: You're not taking her.

Robert: Listen, port Charles police department, office of the commissioner, I'm not interested in that, come on, I'm taking this woman off this plane.

Mr. Carlson: I'm no expert, Mrs. Baldwin, but these two signatures look remarkably similar.

Susan: I'm telling you, it's a forgery.

Alice: Susan, don't get so excited, you're going to make yourself sick.

Susan: Sick? I couldn't be any sicker than I am right now. If you don't believe me, you call an expert. In fact, I'll call an expert.

Mr. Carlson: Mrs. Baldwin, I must insist that you leave that document with me, it's a bank's responsibility to verify that signature.

Susan: You just told me that these two signatures look alike, I'm telling you it's not mine.

Mr. Carlson: If the experts prove that right, we'll need that document as evidence, you're accusing someone of a very serious crime.

Susan: Not someone, Mr. Carlson, I know who signed my name.

Mr. Carlson: Well, the first thing we must do is ascertain for sure that that signature is not yours.

Susan: I guarantee it isn't. You take good care of this evidence, because I fully intend to use it. Come on, Alice. One more thing, I want the bank to know that from now on, not one more penny of my son's money gets touched by anyone unless my physical presence is here to change that.

Mr. Carlson: Well, the account will be frozen as of this minute.

Susan: Fine, until I say otherwise.

Mr. Carlson: As you wish. And Mrs. Baldwin, try not to worry, it's not all black, why, in good conscience I can say the money couldn't have been invested more wisely.

Susan: What?

Mr. Carlson: Well, the new waterfront mall should reap your son a grand profit.

Susan: The mall, I might've known, the mall... Mr. Carlson, I don't care if that mall is worth more than Fort Knox, I don't want one penny of my son's money in it.

All right, what is going on around here?

Robert: Official business.

Look, commissioner Scorpio, I have my orders.

Robert: Yes, and I happen to have some rather urgent business with Miss Sutton here, to which I would like to address to privately.

Mm-hm, well, it's highly inappropriate.

Robert: Yes, well, it just happens to be my jurisdiction, so I'll take full responsibility.

Great, you've got five minutes, and I call my office.

Holly: Why are you doing this?

Robert: Because you don't know what you're doing.

Holly: I'm doing what I have to, Robert.

Robert: Maybe. But does that mean you have to make a profession out of living dangerously?

Holly: I have to go back to England.

Robert: Oh, yes, you do. Where most of your family now reside underground, and we all know who is responsible for that. How long before your life's in danger? How are you going to live? What about money? How are you going to feed your child?

Holly: I'll manage.

Robert: That's a pathetic answer.

Holly: Listen, I've considered everything, and that's my decision.

Robert: Then obviously you really haven't considered the welfare of your child.

Holly: That's a cruel thing to say, of course, I have.

Robert: Then stay. Marry me.

Holly: I can't, and I won't.

Robert: Why not?

Holly: Because I don't want to do that to you, I don't want to take away your freedom.

Robert: [Laughs] What makes you think you could?

Holly: Robert, be sensible!

Robert: Darling, I'm always sensible. But you, apparently, are not.

Holly: I don't want to ruin your life.

Robert: I'll say it again, who says you could? But you've made one valid point, I'm free, and I'm more than capable of making a free choice.

Holly: Robert, stop it.

Robert: I know what I'm saying here.

Holly: Yeah, only out of a sense of duty. I can't let you do that for me.

Robert: Hey, wait, wait a minute. Not just for you.

Holly: I can't let you do that for Luke either.

Robert: Will you stop telling me what I can and what I can't do? Sure I'm doing it for Luke, I owe him. For him, for the baby. I care about that child and I care about you.

Holly: I know that, but I'm going to be all right.

Robert: Ah, will you, now? Whereabouts, back in jolly old England. Well, from where I stand, your future doesn't look too bright back there. No family, no friends. What friends you have got, all they want to do is dance on your grave.

Holly: Robert...

Robert: Well, let's talk about the child. What have we got here? No name, no security, no father, and you're trying to tell me you love that child.

Holly: With all my heart.

Robert: Then don't bring it into the world this way. For you, for the baby, and for Luke, I'm going to ask this question one more time. Will you marry me?

Holly: Yes, Robert, I'll marry you.

Luke: Nurse! Doctor! Great service!

Jedediah: Did you drop this?

Luke: I threw it. Oh, hi, what--what are you doing here?

Jedediah: I thought I recognized the voice, it was the tone that was unfamiliar. I might ask the same thing.

Luke: Oh, well, see, I was-- I was kidnapped by Corsican pirates, and I'm just waiting for my family to come back into power.

Jedediah: Hey, now, you wouldn't lie to a gullible old man, would you?

Luke: [Chuckles] Well, I'll tell you right now, I would lie, cheat, steal, just to get a drink of water.

Jedediah: Hey, you've got a whole pitcherful there on your bedside table.

Luke: Yeah, you noticed that too, but see, it's like this, pal. I might as well have that water in china, see? Thank you.

Jedediah: What happened, son?

Luke: Um, it was the avalanche.

Jedediah: Beautiful thing, an avalanche. Yeah, like a giant smoking tidal wave of snow moving across the land, all that power and glory just wasting itself on the side of a mountain. Beautiful thing to behold.

Luke: Are you out of your mind?

Jedediah: You ever seen Niagara falls?

Luke: A few times.

Jedediah: Beautiful thing to behold, but devastating if you get caught in it.

Luke: Oh, I see what you mean.

Jedediah: Jedediah Parkinson is the name.

Luke: John... John doe.

Jedediah: Sure enough, john doe. Did you forget your name? Or you're just hiding behind this one?

Luke: Well, I don't believe that's any of your business.

Jedediah: I understand, son. You decided to go with it alone, huh? You're not going to inflict your handicap on your family and friends, you're going to be a martyr. That avalanche must have broken more than just your body. Well, I better be getting along, I've got a friend to see here. He lost a foot race with that avalanche too.

Luke: Wait a minute. Just for the record, Jedediah Parkinson, I ain't no martyr.

Jedediah: No? Glad to hear it. Hypo analytical bunch, pretending to suffer, and all the time there enjoying it.

Luke: Oh... you think I enjoy this?

Jedediah: What are you doing to change it?

Luke: What can I do?

Jedediah: Son, when you're in a fight, you're either winning or you're losing, and right now you are in a fight.

Luke: Well, I guess I'm losing it.

Jedediah: But are you putting up the best fight you know how?

Luke: I'll tell you what it is, see, the problem with this fight, I don't really know what to fight for, because either way I ain't going to walk no more.

Jedediah: All right, give up on walking, give up on living like other people, but don't give up on yourself. You may lose a few battles here and there, but you can still win the war.

Luke: Look, pal, you don't know what it's like.

Jedediah: Yeah, you're right. I don't know what it's like for you. But I know what it was like when I had my first heart attack. It was the end of the world. Big strong man like me, a blacksmith with a forge to work and metal to heat and bend, and they telling me I've got to take it easy, you know? [Chuckles] I can't do this, I shouldn't do that, and those became the most important things in the world. All I could think about were those things, because they were the only things I wanted to do.

Luke: Like walk.

Jedediah: Like walking.

Luke: It's the only thing I think about.

Jedediah: It is time you start thinking about what's possible, and stop dreaming about what's not possible.

Luke: I'll think about it.

Jedediah: Yeah, that's the best place to start, right there. And if it doesn't make sense, don't do it.

Luke: [Chuckles] You... you're real big with the down home advice, ain't you?

Jedediah: [Laughs] People come to expect it when you're shooting their horses.

Luke: Oh...

Jedediah: Can you play chess?

Luke: Terribly. Very badly.

Jedediah: Next time I'm in town.

Alice: Susan! You can't mean all those things you say, the man's your husband.

Susan: Oh, yeah? Tell me one of the vows he's kept since we've been married.

Alice: I don't know, but he wouldn't do anything so awful.

Susan: Oh, on the contrary, aunt Alice, if there's one thing I know about my husband, it's that he'd stoop to anything to get what he wants.

Alice: Susan, forgery is a criminal act.

Susan: That's right, making Scott and your daughter heather criminals.

Alice: Now, you don't know that they had anything to do with this.

Susan: Oh, aunt Alice, come on! Who else could it be?

Alice: But heather would never become involved in anything--

Susan: Are you kidding me? This is exactly the kind of thing heather would become involved in. From the very beginning she and Scott wanted Jason's money, they were both after it, it was just a matter of who'd get it first.

Alice: I just think that you've got to have proof positive before you can go around making accusations.

Susan: For heaven's sake, you heard what Mr. Carlson said, it had to be them.

Alice: All right, then give them a chance to explain.

Susan: Explain? You mean, lie? Because that's all they're going to do again once we give them the evidence.

Alice: Susan, what about the investment? Mr. Carlson said--

Susan: Mr. Carlson is an idiot, not just for saying that, but for letting Scott get away with all this.

Alice: It might make Jason rich, honey.

Susan: Aunt Alice, you know, I never thought I'd say this, but I don't even care about the money anymore.

Alice: Oh, that's good, because you shouldn't get so upset.

Susan: You're right, because I've got something much more important going on right now, and it's something I should have pursued a long time ago. I'm going to get even.

Alice: Susan, honey, that's crazy, you've got a child.

Susan: What I've got is a list, a list of everyone who's ever stepped on me, and I'm going to step on them, every single one of them, starting from the bottom with the worst of them all, heather Webber and Scott Baldwin.
