Jason: Sam -- Sam?
Robin: I didn't know you were working today.
Patrick: Well, my dad's volunteering at the clinic. Which is just as well, because if he was in town, he'd be tempted to drink.
Robin: So, all alone on Thanksgiving, huh? Any plans?
Patrick: No, I've got big plans. After I'm done here, I'm going to go home and celebrate with a turkey sandwich in front of the TV.
Robin: Well, that sounds great, but I have a better idea. Why don't you come spend Thanksgiving with me and my family?
Luke: Well, there is a beautiful, familiar sight -- you and a Christmas tree. Laura? Laura?
Laura: Isn't the Christmas tree beautiful?
Elizabeth: You're still a little feverish, but it's definitely going down. I got you some antibiotics.
Jason: Thank you.
Elizabeth: You realize this is insane? You were shot. I may have gotten the bullet out and done what I could to stem the bleeding, but a lot could go wrong.
Jason: It's ok, you did a good -- you did a great job. Ahem.
Elizabeth: Well, you still need to be in the hospital.
Jason: I canít. I got to find this computer guy, Spinelli.
Elizabeth: Sonny has a lot of people working for him. It doesn't have to be you who proves Sam is innocent.
Jason: Yes, it does.
Elizabeth: How you going to do that? You can barely stand. Do you have anything resembling a plan?
Nikolas: Hey. We come bearing gifts.
Luke: That was fast work, boys.
Lucky: Well, I do have an eye for picking out gifts you all love.
Nikolas: You picked out? Where do I come in in all this?
Lulu: Your credit card.
Laura: This is a wonderful treat.
Lulu: Where's grandma?
Luke: Oh, she's spending the night with Barbara Jean so we can have run of the house.
Laura: She wanted to give us time for our honeymoon.
Nikolas: Is that -- is that a turkey I smell in the oven?
Luke: It is. Mike buys a bunch of them for the homeless every year for Thanksgiving, and he was good enough to give us one. So once we open the presents, we're going to sit down to a holiday feed.
Laura: So -- so, what are we going to do now? Open the presents?
Luke: Yeah. Let's start with you, darling.
Laura: Oh, no, no, no. You start because I like to see your faces when you open the gifts.
Nikolas: I -- I think Lucky should open the first one. You'll -- you'll understand when you see it. Here you go.
Lucky: Works for me.
Lucky: A digital camera?
Nikolas: We need to take as many photos of this evening as possible.
Lulu: I agree.
Lucky: All right, mom, let's start first. Smile.
Lulu: Mom? Mom?
Luke: It's ok. This happened earlier. Just -- she's fine. Just give her a minute. Sweetheart? Sweet-- Laura? We're opening presents.
Laura: Oh. So -- so we're -- we're opening the presents now, right?
Luke: Yes, yes.
Nikolas: Yes, yes, we are. So, Lulu --
Lulu: Oh. Thanks.
Laura: Luke? I think -- I think we should call the doctor. I'd like to see how much time I have left.
Lulu: You know, mom's a long way from sitting silently in a chair. Maybe there's some other medicine that they can give her to keep her going.
Nikolas: Yeah, well, let's -- let's not get our hopes up until we hear what Dr. Drake has to say.
Laura: Thank you for coming over to the house on Thanksgiving. That was awfully nice of you.
Patrick: It's not a problem. I just wish I could've done more.
Lulu: What does that mean?
Laura: I -- I want my family to hear the diagnosis, please.
Patrick: Laura is relapsing into psychomotor disassociation. These episodes of stillness will occur with increased frequency. It's remarkable that you can call your mother back, but soon that won't be possible.
Luke: Thank you, doctor. We'll take it from here.
Lucky: Well, let's get going on some presents so I can have some good photo ops.
Laura: I'm afraid that this Christmas celebration is over now.
Nikolas: Hey, well -- it smells like that turkey's almost done. So why don't we just sit down, have a nice dinner --
Laura: No, no, honey. Dr. Drake feels that it would be best for me to go back to Shadybrook now, while I'm still able to get there by myself. Um -- I'd like to go now.
Lulu: How can you say that?
Laura: It's going to be all right.
Lulu: No, it is not going to be all right! How can you just give up and leave?
Emily: Didn't Alice tell you that dinner's ready?
Ned: She called us twice. No one seems to want to move to the table.
Emily: Did she mention that there's a turkey waiting with all the trimmings? For once we don't have to eat pizza.
Dillon: Nobody's hungry.
Alan: Who wants to fake their way through saying grace anyway?
Emily: "Fake their way"? What -- what about giving thanks for all our blessings?
Monica: Well, as Tracy so clearly pointed out, there really isn't a heck of a lot to be thankful for, Emily.
Emily: Huh. Alice?
Alice: Miss Emily? You're the only one in the house who doesn't bellow, so there must be an emergency?
Emily: Yeah, it is. Pack up everything on the table, every scrap of food, all the china -- the works.
Emily: Since the family can't be bothered to give thanks for all they have, we're just going to give the dinner away to people who will appreciate it.
Lulu: All of my life, I have heard about your love and your courage and your strength. And -- and now when really matters, you're giving up without a fight? The doctors say you need to go back to Shadybrook, and you just say "Fine, ok, no problem"?
Lucky: Lulu, that's not --
Lulu: No, this is not fair! We finally get mom back after years of missing her. And -- and, what, we've had her less than a month, and we're just supposed to accept that it's over?
Nikolas: Lulu -- Lulu, we're all doing the best we can here.
Lulu: No, mom, you fought for dad, didn't you? You jumped out of planes; you faced mobsters and Nikolas' nut-case family. Why isn't dad worth fighting for now? Why aren't we?
Laura: You are all worth it.
Lulu: How can you claim that you love us so much and turn around and leave us so easily?
Luke: Stop it! You think this is easy for your mother? It's hell, damn it. Give her a break.
Laura: You have every right to be angry. I'm sorry, Lulu.
Lucky: Can you stay one more night, mom? We'll take you to Shadybrook tomorrow.
Laura: It's happening a little too fast, Lucky. I should go now.
Laura: I'm sorry. Maybe it is a little bit selfish, but I -- I can't bear the thought of the staff of Shadybrook coming here to collect me.
Nikolas: Mom -- mom, I wouldn't let that happen.
Laura: I know you wouldn't. That's why I need to go now. I'm still capable of getting there on my own and I can sign my own name. Lulu, I'm very sorry. There is no plane to jump out of this time. This is the only way that I can be courageous -- is to face what's happening to me with a certain amount of dignity.
Jason: Stan arranged for the studio to be rented in your name. He -- he back-dated the lease so it looks like you've been here since August.
Elizabeth: Ok. I can bring over some art supplies so I can take care of you without raising any suspicion.
Jason: No, Elizabeth, you don't have to do that. You have risked enough for me again, and I --
Elizabeth: You just said it was my apartment, didn't you?
Jason: I just want you to take care of yourself and your baby.
Elizabeth: I am. And the baby's fine, so you can stop worrying.
[Knock on door]
Elizabeth: Who is it?
Emily: It's Emily. I -- I brought you some food because I know how you lose track of time when you're painting.
Elizabeth: Hi. Come in.
Jason: How --
Elizabeth: I didn't think you'd want her to worry.
Emily: Now, I know that you probably don't want me to know about this.
Jason: No, it's -- it's ok. There's cops everywhere. The idea is for me to be hiding out, not having visitors.
Emily: Jason, the family's afraid that you're dead. Mom and dad are grieving. I mean, grandfather hounded the mayor to drag the river for your body. If -- if I could just tell them that you're all right --
Jason: No, no. I'm sorry. The more people who know, the greater chance I have of being caught.
Robin: I was starting to think you stood me up.
Patrick: I wouldn't do that.
Robin: I may have laid it on a little thick about passing inspection with my Uncle Mac. But he is very excited that you're coming, I think because he's so proud of his Thanksgiving dinner.
Robin: He makes, literally, the best --
Patrick: I just got back from examining Laura Spencer. She's regressing rapidly.
Robin: I was hoping she'd have a little bit more time.
Patrick: I questioned you at first for pushing so hard to give Laura LS-49, and I understand now. She's a remarkable woman. I mean, she knows she's slipping away, and she's dealing with it with such grace and integrity. It makes me feel --
Epiphany: They need you both in E.R., stat. Car accident -- two adults, three children.
Patrick: We're on our way to prep.
Robin: And please call Mac and tell him we won't be making it to Thanksgiving dinner after all.
Lulu: It can't be happening already.
Luke: She faded on the ride over, went silent for about 20 minutes. Then she focused long enough to sign the admittance papers and walk to the room. But as soon as she sat down, she slipped away again.
Nikolas: Well, is there any way to get through to her now so we can at least say goodbye to her?
Luke: We'll try. Laura? Laura, sweetheart, the kids are here. They need to talk to you. Can you come back? Just a little while? Yes. Yes, hello.
Laura: Luke -- oh. What -- I'm in the hospital. What am I doing --?
Luke: You wanted to come here, sweetheart.
Laura: That's right, I -- I signed the papers.
Luke: Yes, you did.
Laura: Oh. My kids -- I want to say goodbye to the kids. I want -- Nikolas. I want to start with Nikolas. Please? Luke, leave me alone with Nikolas for a minute.
Nikolas: I -- I know you're tired. You should save your energy for Lucky and -- and Lulu.
Laura: Oh, Nikolas. That's so much like you -- you always putting your brother and sister ahead of yourself.
Nikolas: Well, I'm the oldest. I -- I suppose I feel like it's my responsibility.
Laura: Hmm. That's a wonderful quality in a man. But please don't spend your life putting everyone ahead of you.
Laura: You have so many wonderful qualities. You're steady and you're calm. I'm so impressed with the generosity of your spirit, Nikolas.
Nikolas: I get that from you, mom.
Laura: Oh, no. I can't take credit for it, I didn't raise you.
Laura: But, Nikolas, it's strange. I feel like I understand you better than my other two. And you know why?
Laura: It's because we have the same heart.
Nikolas: Oh, God.
Laura: We will never be far apart, you know that? I'll always be with you. If you want to know what I would say, or what I think, all you have to do is listen to your heart.
Nikolas: I want you to know, mom, that no matter everything that's happened, I am so blessed to be your son.
Laura: And I am blessed to be your mother.
Nikolas: I love you so much, mom. I -- so much, and --
Laura: I love you.
Nikolas: I will cherish all the memories that I have of you. And I will share them with my son -- I will share them with my son because I want him to know how incredible his grandmother is.
Laura: Thank you.
Elizabeth: I brought you some soup. I can heat it up on a hot plate for you.
Jason: I'll do it -- I'll do it later. You have better things to do with your Thanksgiving than stay here with me, that's for sure.
Elizabeth: Actually, I already covered it with Gram.
Jason: What'd you tell her?
Elizabeth: That I had been hired as a private nurse for the day.
Jason: Huh. Well, I appreciate the thought, but I want you to spend Thanksgiving with your family.
Elizabeth: But, Jason, if your fever goes up, then I really should be here -
Jason: The medicine you brought me -- it's working. Ok? So, go. So go tell your grandmother the patient didn't need you after all. Spend some time with Cameron. I know it's not much, but it's my way of saying thank you for saving my life.
Laura: Oh. Lucky.
Lucky: I love you. That's all I wanted to say.
Laura: I love you. I'm so proud of you.
Lucky: Yeah, well, I haven't given you much reason to be lately.
Laura: Oh, honey, we all have to face our demons in life. And now you know that you have this addiction. Oh, Lucky, there will be days when you don't want to fight it anymore, but you keep going. You have more resources inside yourself than you realize.
Lucky: Spoken like a true mother.
Laura: When you were a little boy, and your dad and I were traveling around the world -- that was hard on you. It was tough. But, Lucky, you could always adapt. You were so strong, and you still are. All of those qualities are still inside you. So please don't let yourself be knocked down by the setbacks.
Lucky: I promise I will always see the good in everything, because you've seen the good in me.
Laura: Hmm. There's so much good to see. I know how much family means to you, too. And I think that there's a good chance that you and Elizabeth can work it out.
Laura: If it's meant to be, it will be.
Lucky: I love you -- forever.
Lucky: I love you more.
Laura: Oh, Lucky. Oh, Lucky. Oh.
Lucky: I love you.
Laura: I love you.
Lulu: Oh -- mom?
Laura: What? Oh, I'm not slipping, I'm not drifting. I'm -- I'm ok.
Lulu: I'm scared. I don't want to lose you.
Laura: I know, honey. It's going to be all right. It's going to be ok.
Lulu: I'm sorry. I shouldn't have yelled at you. I was so wrong.
Laura: That's ok. I'm sure that everybody tells you that you look like me. Huh. Although, I'm sure I was never as beautiful.
Lulu: You are still the most beautiful woman in the world, mom.
Laura: Oh, when I look at you, I see your father. Hmm -- smart, feisty, resourceful, rebellious -- hmm -- ready to take risks. But, Lulu, you are always protecting your heart.
Lulu: It's gotten me into a lot of messes.
Laura: Hmm. I'm glad you know that about yourself.
Lulu: There have been so many times that I needed to talk to you, where if I could just get your advice, I'd know that everything would be ok.
Laura: You got shortchanged, Lulu. I'm sorry. But you are a survivor. You are, so you believe in yourself. And, Lulu, this is important. When the time comes for you to fall in love, don't be afraid. You go for it.
Lulu: I'll try.
Laura: Good girl.
Lulu: Mom? Mom? Mom?
Laura: I'm -- I'm not slipping, I'm not. I'm trying to decide --
Lulu: Decide what?
Laura: I didn't want to tell your father this because I didn't want to upset him. I think he believes that I -- I killed my father out of self-defense, but something just doesn't ring true. I -- I think I'm innocent.
Lulu: Don't worry, mom. I'll prove that you're innocent.
Laura: Thank you.
Lulu: I love you.
Laura: I love you.
Dillon: Pizza's here. Come and get it.
Alan: Oh, yay. It's about time.
Edward: About time.
Alan: What kind did you bring?
Skye: I'm hungry.
Monica: Is that going to be enough for everybody?
Tracy: This --
Dillon: We got --
Skye: What do we have here?
Monica: Ham and pineapple?
Monica: Nobody ordered that.
Emily: I did.
Skye: Who eats that?
Edward: This pizza is stone cold.
Tracy: You don't need to put your hand on it.
Ned: Probably sitting around for hours.
Tracy: That's disgusting.
Dillon: The pizza is warm, and if you want to put it in the microwave to heat it up, you can go ahead and do that.
Skye: There is a plain, thank goodness.
Monica: Oh, look at that -- three pieces of broccoli and they call it "vegetarian."
Ned: That looks good.
Alan: Ah, that last is the best.
Tracy: If you're hoping to get a piece of turkey, too late. Emily gave our whole thanksgiving meal away.
Ned: Unless you'd like some pizza?
Nikolas: No, no, thank you. I'd like everybody to know that Lauraís had her relapse and is back at Shadybrook.
Emily: Oh, my God, Nikolas, I'm so sorry.
Dillon: Is -- is Lulu ok?
Nikolas: She insisted on going back to the house. I don't know.
Alan: We're all very sorry, Nikolas.
Edward: Yes, your -- your mother's a fine woman.
Monica: I'm sure you wish that you could've spent more time with her.
Nikolas: I do. But we'll have our memories. Unfortunately, that's just not good enough.
Edward: Oh -- don't, don't -- hey, don't answer the phone. It's just more bad news.
Monica: It could be the hospital, Edward.
Edward: Oh, come on --
Emily: Hello? Um -- yeah. Just -- just a second. She's -- she's right here. It's -- it's for you, mom.
Monica: Thank you. This is Dr. Quartermaine.
Jason: It's me.
Monica: Oh, my God. Oh. Are you all right?
Jason: I -- I can't say where I am. I just -- I wanted you to know that I'm alive, and I'm sorry I worried you. And I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving.
Monica: Well, we will, now -- now that you've called. Jason would like to wish us all a happy Thanksgiving.
Edward: Wow! Well, now we can all give thanks!
Elizabeth: Hey. Is everything ok?
Lucky: I just -- I just had to say goodbye to my mom.
Elizabeth: So soon?
Lucky: Yeah, she want-- wanted to go back to Shadybrook while she could still make her own decisions, so we took her back.
Elizabeth: Honey, I'm really sorry.
Lucky: You know, it's just so strange to me now that I ever worried about my mom judging me or being disappointed in me. She -- it was truly amazing -- totally accepting me, reminding me that of all the good she sees in me -- and I just -- I just need to live up to that.
Elizabeth: All she would want is for you to live life the best you can.
Lucky: My mom said the same thing. All the good things in my life, to appreciate everything that's happened. Thank you for all you did during my mom's recovery. I know it meant a lot to her.
Elizabeth: Yeah. Lucky? Do you have any plans for Thanksgiving?
Luke: The kids have gone. Whatever you said to them seemed to help. Now it's just us. Just us, with me knowing there's no way that I can keep you with me. I need to find a way to say -- sweetheart -- Laura, come back. Laura, come back. Oh.
Luke: I want to say something to you, and I don't even know what. I wish I could express how amazing the life that we have together has been for me. But it's impossible. All I have is my love. It's all I ever had. And our love -- it's the only thing I've ever valued. I love you, Laura. I love you, and I always will.
Laura: I love you. I want to stay with you. Oh. But if -- if I can't -- uh -- can't see where I'm going, but I know it's beautiful. Oh, nothing's as beautiful as looking in your eyes and knowing that we love each other, and always will.
Edward: We gather
All: Together to ask the Lord's blessing he chastens and hastens his will to make known the wicked, oppressing now, cease from distressing sing praises to his name he forgets not his own
Singer: All the things I've done before this they don't mean a thing and all the words spoken before this won't be said again suddenly, so much of me has no need to pretend there's nothing like the truth to bring her back to you and everyone I've met before this ain't seen me with you angel angel angel
Lucky: Oh, I do, I do, I do.
Singer: My angel my angel
[Knock on door]
Singer: You're the only one who knows what I go through
Lulu: Dillon, what's up? Come in.
Singer: Sometimes you need to feel
Dillon: Nikolas told us about -- uh -- your mom.
Singer: I don't
Dillon: I just want to say I'm so sorry.
Lulu: Well, my mom was very brave. I totally lost it, of course. I flipped out and had a tantrum like some 5-year-old. God forbid I make things any easier for anyone.
Dillon: Lulu --
Singer: And every night I
Dillon: I think you get to be upset about the fact that your mom's fading and there's nothing you can do about it.
Lulu: But there is something I can do. I can prove that my mom's innocent.
Luke: Laura? Can you hear me, angel?
Singer: My angel my angel
Luke: Well, I hope that you've gone to that place you were talking about -- the one you couldn't see but that you knew was there.
Singer: What the world thinks about me
Luke: I'm picturing you in a garden --
Singer: In the corner
Luke: Your garden --
Singer: Whoo, you're always surrounding me with your
Luke: Surrounded by flowers and sunlight. Wherever you are --
Singer: Oh, angel
Luke: I'm there with you --
Luke: In my heart.
Singer: And if we
Luke: And I will be until the day I die.
Singer: But I just hope the pieces are up so I'll reach out to you to find my angel ooh, angel my angel angel my angel my angel ooh, ooh all the things I've done
Lukeís voice: I, Lucas Lorenzo Spencer, take thee, Laura Webber Baldwin, to be my wedded wife.
Laura's voice: I, Laura Webber Baldwin, take thee, Lucas Lorenzo Spencer, to be my lawful wedded husband.
Ministerís voice: You may kiss the bride.
Singer: Of me has no need to pretend there's nothing like the truth to bring her back to you and everyone I've met before this ain't seen me with you angel angel angel
Singer: Angel my angel my angel
