Previously on "Guiding Light"...

Ashlee: "She looked at him; tears in her eyes." This must be about your new girl.

Jeffrey: I just dropped him off at the McAvoy Center. He's going to be a volunteer. Maybe even a mentor.

Shayne: You Byron?

Byron: Nobody calls me that.

Lillian: Coop is not Phillip.

Beth: This is not about Phillip!

Lillian: Yes, it is about Phillip!

Shayne: Dinah, get out of here!

Natalia: Anyone seen the matches to these?

Olivia: Ooh!

Emma: (Giggles) Mom, did the washing machine eat them again?

Olivia: Oh, just throw them in the top drawer of my dresser, will you?

Natalia: Maybe we should just throw them away. Hello? This is Natalia Rivera.

Olivia: Oh, so you're supposed to, um... you're supposed to write about your family?

Emma: Our family, and what makes it unique.

Olivia: Okay.

Emma: I don't even know what "unique" means.

Olivia: It means... it means one-of-a-kind. There's no other one like it.

Emma: Like socks?

Olivia: (Laughs) No, not like socks!

Natalia: Dahlias or Lilies of the Valley? The fundraiser next week.

Olivia: Dahlias. And don't take their first offer.

Natalia: Okay. Okay. I will be in touch with you, then. Thank you Darren. Bye-bye. Could you just sign and initial the top page, please?

Olivia: Is there anything you aren't on top of?

Natalia: Nope.

Olivia: Okay. You know what? I have a good idea. Why don't we get out the family photo album?

Emma: I already looked at it. Wait, I know! We could do an interview like those cool ladies in TV.

Olivia: That's a great idea. Okay. Let's do it now. What do you want to ask me?

Emma: Not you, Mommy.

Olivia: Well, Ava just moved to San Francisco, sweetie. I don't think she has the time right now.

Emma: Not Ava, either.

Olivia: Well, who? Who do you want to interview?

Emma: Granddad Alan.

Natalia: Well, he is unique.

Alan: Have you spoken to Elizabeth today?

Beth: Uh... only for a minute.

Alan: Uh-huh.

Beth: She obviously wasn't up to it. She's just crushed.

Alan: Yes, I know she's crushed. And that's why we should be celebrating.

Beth: Excuse me?

Alan: Beth, Bill Lewis has moved out. He has removed himself from her life. Now, then, our life can finally get back to normal. Elizabeth will run the company. I will be by her side. You and I can focus on Peyton and James. We will be together as a family again, like it was meant to be.

Beth: I hope you're right.

Alan: Well, of course I'm right. Um, let me ask you something. The ring I got you, um... has it gone out of style?

Beth: No. (Laughs) No, of course not. Why?

Alan: Well, I notice that, uh... you're not wearing it. And if you didn't like it, all I have to do is call the jeweler, you can go down and pick out any ring you want.

Beth: The ring is beautiful, Alan. That's not it.

Alan: Then what is it? Because, Beth, every time I mention marriage to you, you change the subject.

Buzz: Let me guess. Your writing...

Coop: About Beth?

Buzz: Uh-huh.

Coop: You can say it, Dad. It's not going to kill you.

Buzz: Well...

Coop: It's not so much a novel anymore as it is more of a stupid, long-winded story that has absolutely no ending I could come up with because the real-life ending is too pitiful to recount.

Jeffrey: Hey.

Reva: Hey. This is going to be so much fun! We're going to get to take movies of the little guy eating his applesauce, and movies of you changing dirty diapers...

Jeffrey: Great.

Reva: (Laughs)

Jeffrey: Actually, it is going to be great, you know, because I missed all of that with Ava.

Reva: I know. I know how much you wish you'd been there for all of that.

Jeffrey: But that's okay. I'll make up for it this time around with extra diaper duty, and I won't mind at all with this little guy.

Reva: Oh, I like that! (Laughing)

Josh: Hello! Hi, there.

Reva: Hi.

Josh: Sorry. Hope I'm not interrupting anything. The door was open, by the way.

Jeffrey: Did you come for those Christmas decorations?

Josh: Let me guess. You threw them away in the garbage?

Jeffrey: Oh, no, no, no. We've got way too much Christmas spirit around here to let that kind of thing happen. But I will need some help carrying that light-up reindeer out of here.

Reva: (Laughs)

Jeffrey: He's heavy.

Josh: Ah, yes.

Reva: Guess who tweaked his lower back...

Jeffrey: Yeah.

Reva: ...Trying to get all of the tinkly lights down? Or twinkly? Twinkly? Whatever they are. You know what? Don't you think it's about time we retired that reindeer, anyway? Give it to Goodwill, or something.

Josh: Are you crazy? When Shayne was a kid, Rudolph was his favorite, Reva.

Reva: Ah, that's right. He used to love it. He used to love the way the nose blinked on and off and on and off for hours, all night!

Jeffrey: Okay, if we're done reminiscing, maybe we can take care of this reindeer, and we have just enough time to get to Cedars.

Reva: Oh, yeah.

Josh: Everything okay with the baby?

Reva: Yeah.

Jeffrey: Yeah, oh, no, it’s... it's not that. It's just, well, they're having a prenatal workshop there, and you can learn everything you could ever possibly want to know about having a baby.

Reva: (Laughs)

Jeffrey: Well, that's what they say in the flier, right?

Reva: Yeah. I'm going to have to meet you there, though, because I have some errands I have to run.

Jeffrey: Well, I'll go with you.

Reva: No. You'll only slow me down. Can you do me a favor?

Josh: Yeah!

Reva: Can you take that mistletoe down with you, take it with you? Take it out of here?

Josh: Sure.

Reva: Good. Okay, see you.

Josh: Bye.

Jeffrey: Bye. Okay, let's go break the bad news to Rudolph. He's going into deep storage.

Josh: I'm right behind you.

Shayne: What were you thinking coming here?

Dinah: Me? You're the one with the death wish.

Byron: Shut up, Blondie. So you love a challenge, huh? You think it's fun coming over here, messing with somebody who's got it worse off than you? Betcha it ain't fun now. You know, too bad you can't keep your damn mouth shut. Your girlfriend's real hot.

Shayne: Not my girlfriend, By...

Byron: Yo, you call me that one more time...

Dinah: He will call you what ever you want! Just would you please do something?

Shayne: There's really no point to it, Dinah. I've known a hundred guys like Byron, here, and I've got to be honest with you, Blondie, you're screwed.

Byron: Yo, you don't know anything, man!

Shayne: Yo, I know more than you think, man! I know that you hate your name, Byron. I know that you even hate your life. That's why you're going to go out with a big bang, right? You're going to make a big splash now! Well, guess what, yo? You hit the jackpot. This chick's the head of a television station. Which means not just one measly line in the paper when you go to trial for her murder... I'm talking prime time coverage, Byron. Maybe they'll even preempt stuff for you. Your life story, running 24/7. But you know what the crazy part is? It's bananas. Everyone is going to have to know your actual name. Your actual name! That's kind of ironic, isn't it? Everyone is going to know the name Byron Skiddel!

Dinah: Oh!

Byron: Yo, if you don't shut up right now, I'm doing it, man.

Shayne: Do it, man! What's stopping you?

Dinah: Shayne!

Shayne: Do it! You don't want to do it, do you? You know what, I'm giving you permission to do it. Just one little thing. You've got to go through me first.

Byron: Oh, cripple's a real hero, huh?

Shayne: Well, that's what they tell me. But, you know what, really? I'm just like you. I don't give a flip what happens to me! You think your life is worthless? Come over here and sit in these boots for a day. You know why I hang with low life’s like you? Because after what I saw over there, it would just make your skin crawl. You'd lay down on the railroad tracks, and you'd wait to see what happens next! You know what else I learned over there, Byron? Picking fights is fun. So come on, man! Come on! Show me what you've got, Byron!

Byron: You never saw me, you got that? You never saw me!

Dinah: That's how you talk down a dude with a knife?

Shayne: I don't know. That was my first time. Ah! Hmm, yeah. You shoved a cripple. Real cool.

Dinah: Yeah, and you know what? You think I won't do it again? In a heartbeat!

Shayne: This is the thanks I get for saving your life?

Dinah: You practically dared that guy to do it! What the hell's wrong with you?

Shayne: It worked, didn't it? Byron never knew what hit him.

Dinah: You have some serious issues, you know that?

Shayne: And yet you came to see me. What does that say about you?

Dinah: That I need a hobby.

Shayne: How about whittling?

Jeffrey: Okay, I think that's it. (Laughs) Ah, but do me a favor? Next year, can I keep the reindeer at your house?

Josh: (Laughs) Yes. Yes, we can. And, in fact, I'm planning on having my own house by next year.

Jeffrey: Listen, there’s... there's something I wanted to talk to you about.

Josh: You need some baby advice?

Jeffrey: No, it's not about my kid. It's about yours.

Josh: This is the medal that Doris Wolfe gave Shayne, isn't it? Where... where did you find this?

Jeffrey: Well, I was out taking a run by the lake this morning.

Josh: Well, what are you thinking? That Shayne just pitched this into the lake? I mean, why would he... (sighs) he hates being called a hero.

Jeffrey: It must be hard, you know, getting all of that praise when you feel like you failed. When you feel like you have a job to do, but you can't do it.

Josh: Yeah. I just didn't know it was this bad.

Jeffrey: I know you asked me to keep my distance, but, uh, there was this volunteer outreach program down on Fifth Street. I hooked Shayne up. I thought it would be good for him.

Josh: Well, you know, you could have run that by me first. That would have been nice.

Jeffrey: We're not going to do this again, are we?

Josh: (Laughs)

Jeffrey: Because I happen to like this suit...

Josh: No, no. Relax. I'm not mad about it. It will probably be a good thing for Shayne to do some work like that, so thank you.

Jeffrey: Well, I am going to try to keep my distance, and if you'd keep an eye on Shayne, because Reva has so much to worry about right now.

Josh: Well, it sounds like we actually agree on something. How did that happen?

Jeffrey: It must be the moon. I hear it's going to be full tonight.

Josh: Thank you. Really. I'll see you.

Buzz: (Laughs)

Coop: Dad, would you just toss it?

Buzz: No! You spent hours, years working on this thing. I can’t... no, I'm not...

Coop: Really? Even if it's about Beth?

Buzz: Well, you know what? Some day some guy ... some biographer is going to kill himself to find Henry Cooper Bradshaw’s unpublished novel.

Coop: Yeah, right. They'll think I wrote it back in grade school, about my first crush.

Buzz: Oh, well, you know, I'm glad you got it out on orbit before Alan is the main character of this thing, just before he broke your fingers or something worse. Will you do me a favor?

Coop: What? No. You know what, I'm not...

Buzz: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. The financials.

Coop: Financials?

Buzz: Yeah.

Coop: You want me to... Dad, this is the company payroll and last year's accounting.

Buzz: Right.

Coop: Who organized this thing, Zach?

Buzz: I'm not really good at money, you know?

Coop: I know you're not. Well, it looks like it.

Buzz: Well, could you just... would you mind taking a look at it?

Coop: Okay. I'll tell you, if this is your lame attempt to try to get my mind off of Beth, I've got to tell you...

Buzz: I'm shocked. I'm actually shocked.

Coop: You're shocked?

Buzz: I'm shocked.

Coop: You can be shocked if you want to. I'm going to put myself on payroll if I'm going to do this for you, though.

Beth: Ah, Peyton is finally asleep. I don't know why she's so fussy.

Alan: Well, maybe she's fussy because her mommy won't accept her daddy's proposal, huh?

Beth: I'm sorry, Alan, you just... you took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting you to propose like that.

Alan: Well, if you'd like, we can get violins or I can take you to the countryside of Italy. I mean, it could all be arranged with one phone call, Beth.

Beth: I just need time to process.

Alan: You need time to process, huh? I would have thought you would be processing this from the day you found out that Peyton was our daughter. I am aware, though, that you have preoccupations.

Beth: Preoccupations?

Alan: Beth, I know... these law studies have become a full-time job for you.

Beth: Right. Right. Actually, it's more like a job-and-a-half. Speaking of which, did my phone ring while I was upstairs? I'm expecting a call from Gerald Brooks.

Alan: Gerald Brooks? Of Gold, Dunn and Brooks?

Beth: Yeah. It's for my work study.

Alan: Oh.

Beth: He is handling a pro bono tenant grievance case, and I am shadowing him.

Alan: Pro bono? Why would Gerald Brooks do something like that? Something that's so inconsequential?

Beth: It's not inconsequential to the tenant. (Cell phone rings) Excuse me. Ah, that's him.

Alan: Hmm.

Beth: Mr. Brooks, Beth Raines. You want to meet at Company? May I suggest Towers? You like the coffee at Company? Doesn't everyone? Company it is. I have to go. But I'm not... I'm not avoiding you. We will discuss this later. I promise.

Alan: I hope so. (Cell phone rings) Alan Spaulding.

Emma: Granddad, it's me, Emma. I want to interview you for a paper.

Alan: Well, hello, Emma. Well, I would love it if you would interview me. I... I wasn't aware that you were old enough to work for the "Springfield Journal," though.

Emma: Not the paper! A paper, for Social Studies class. All about our family.

Alan: Well, I would be honored. I think it's time that you found out the real meaning of what family is.

Olivia: Let the brainwashing begin.

Reva: So, it's always so weird talking to a camera. But then things have been crazier than usual around here anyway, so... whoo! I've had quite a life. More life than most people ever have. But I never imagined that I would be pregnant and fighting cancer at the same time. And I guess, since you're watching this, I'm not around anymore. And I'm so sorry about that. Because, believe me, kid, there is nothing I wanted more than to watch you grow up. So, instead, I'm going to fill you in on some stuff. Some... some Reva Shayne stuff. Stuff about me, stuff about life, where you come from, stuff about... well, everything.

Olivia: All right, don't take too long, because I want to be done in time for the People's Choice Awards, okay?

Alan: Well, fine. Go right ahead. I just want to make sure that Emma gets an accurate account of what our family is really like.

Olivia: Sure. So say what you're going to say and then scram.

Alan: All right.

Natalia: I'd be happy to take your coat.

Alan: Yeah, great.

Emma: Granddad!

Alan: Hey, Emma! Oh! I want you to know that you made me very proud when you called me today.

Emma: I did?

Alan: Yes. Because if there is one person who knows the true meaning of family, it is your granddad. So why don't we get started?

Emma: The question is...

Alan: Mm-hmm?

Emma: What makes our family unique?

Beth: (Sighs) Please don't let him be here. Please don't let him be here. Please don't let him be here.

Coop: I am here, Beth.

Beth: You're here.

Coop: Yes.

Beth: Hi.

Coop: You were praying that I wouldn't be.

Beth: I'm not here to see you. I have a meeting for school.

Coop: But I see you're not wearing the ring. I guess you didn't say yes.

Beth: It doesn't mean that I'm not going to.

Coop: You know what? Quit the semantics and save it for court. I've got a lot of work that I have to do, okay?

Beth: I'm sorry. I... I didn’t... I didn't mean for it to end like this.

Coop: Then don't end it.

Beth: It's not that simple.

Coop: Beth, it is that simple. It's that simple to me, at least. You chose a guy that doesn't deserve you. Worse yet, a guy that doesn't even get you. As opposed to a guy who sees you as being irresistibly stunning and beautiful, and I get everything about you.

Brooks:(Clears throat) Beth Raines?

Beth: Yes. Yes, that's me.

Brooks: Let's get going. I've got a court time at five.

Reva: Okay. I feel like I should be imparting the wisdom of my years, which, to most people, happens to be a lot, seeing as I am on the older side of the mommy pool. It's a miracle, too, apparently, that... that I'm even pregnant with you. I mean, as far as my doctors are concerned and the general scientific community is concerned. But I don't know if I believe in miracles, really. I believe in love. Love, and its power to heal. And its power to make the world better, and its power to change people. Like your brother Jonathan and your daddy. Oh, your daddy, he loves me so much. He loves you, too, kid. In fact, he's pretty much crazy about you. You know, I don't think your daddy ever thought he believed he was cut out for this stuff, you know, changing diapers, and driving you to football practice. And don't tell him that I told you this, but I think it scares the heck out of him. So I'm going to ask you to do me a favor. Cut him some slack. You know, because he's bound to fumble a few times along the... along the way. I mean, he’s... he's going to forget to pack your lunch. He... he will. He'll do that. And he... he won't be able to explain things to you the way you want to hear them at times, you know? And you're going to want to yell at him, but... but that's okay, you know? But just remember what he's going through. And remember that this isn't going to be easy for him, you know, doing it alone. Okay. I'm going to stop now because I'm going to get all weepy on you, and I don't want to do that. So I'll be back, though. I'll be back real soon. And I love you, kid. I do, and I always will.

Jeffrey: Reva?

Reva: Hey. Hi.

Jeffrey: So...

Reva: (Laughs)

Jeffrey: ...You ready to go to Cedars to learn everything there is to know about being parents?

Reva: You really think we can do all of that in two hours? (Laughter)

Dinah: You fit in so perfectly here. Why don't you see if they'll just let you stay? I think you and Byron would make awesome roomies.

Shayne: I didn't ask you to come over here.

Dinah: No, you didn’t. But, you see, someone had to make sure you didn't jump off a building. Or maybe you were going to stop in the middle of some tracks again. That was so cool.

Shayne: Or maybe I can start a fire. They're a lot of fun, too.

Dinah: I don't know why I bothered.

Shayne: I don't know why you bother, either, so stop!

Dinah: You know why? Because I owe you for a favor.

Shayne: You owe me?

Dinah: Yeah, for helping my brother! So why don't you let me be nice to you?

Shayne: Is this your version of being nice? Because it could use a little work.

Dinah: Can you ever take anything seriously?

Shayne: Yeah. I can be serious. Whew! I seriously want you to leave me alone.

Josh: Hey! I've been waiting for you. I've got some stuff for your new place. Are you going to let me in? (Laughs)

Shayne: You know, you really didn't have to do that.

Josh: Yeah. Well, dads don't actually have to do anything. We choose to do things. We need to do things. It's, uh... it's kind of like therapy for us. Here.

Shayne: Let me guess. To keep me all warm and fuzzy.

Josh: (Laughs) Well, Remy just... he told me that the heat in this place is on the fritz most of the time. So I figured I better get you something. Here. You got a spot for this?

Shayne: Yeah. On the counter, wherever. I don't care.

Josh: Okay. You know, I could... I could help you get a nicer place than this, if you would let me.

Shayne: Why? What's wrong with this place? The deli is around the corner. It's got a wheelchair ramp and everything. It's not your fault that I'm in this place, Dad.

Josh: I understand that. I do. But I'm still your father.

Shayne: And I'm still a grownup man. I'm not a kid anymore. I'm okay. And what is this? What is this? This is going to have to go. Come on Dad, what will the ladies say?

Coop: When was the last time you looked at your accounts payable?

Buzz: I guess a month...

Coop: Month? Months? As in maybe 12?

Buzz: Possibly, yeah.

Coop: Uh-huh. I'm going to need some more coffee.

Beth: So you wanted me to pull the Tyson versus Crawford case, correct?

Brooks: You're back on that? That was five minutes ago. Raines, keep up.

Beth: It's just a lot of information. I want to make sure I fully understand the case.

Brooks: What's to understand? The tenant didn't have heat for a month and refused to pay rent.

Beth: And the landlord retaliated by trying to evict the tenant, um... Lori Wilson.

Brooks: Why Ms. Wilson didn't check herself into a hotel is beyond me.

Beth: Maybe she couldn't afford to.

Brooks: Could I get some coffee over here?

Buzz: Looks like I'm being summoned.

Coop: I don't like that guy Beth is with.

Buzz: Would you like any guy Beth was with?

Coop: Why don't you just go get me the accounts receivable, okay?

Brooks: Where are the other briefs I gave you?

Beth: Ah, they're... they're right here. They're in my bag.

Brooks: Do you want to be a successful lawyer?

Beth: Yes, of course I do.

Brooks: Then learn the first lesson of the law-- time is money. We're only here because I need a deduction on my tax return. So you'll have the briefs ready when I need them, and we can get this over with as quickly as possible.

Beth: I'll be sure to tell that to your client.

Buzz: Do you want to see the mortgage?

Coop: I'd rather see the meat grinder.

Alan: So there is a little bit of our family history. I think now you probably understand why the Spaulding’s are so respected here in Springfield. Not only because we're wealthy, but because of our character. And people here also really envy our close-knit family bond.

Olivia: I can't take anymore of this. I'm going upstairs... to die.

Natalia: Well, I'll let you know when it's over-- if I can... if I can take it.

Alan: Another thing, Emma, about family that you should know-- we always put family first. We're very loyal to family, and trusting. Now, you are a very lucky little girl to be... to be born into a family like the Spaulding’s because we never, ever forget our own. Now, do you think that's enough information for your interview?

Emma: Yes. Thanks, Granddad.

Alan: You're welcome, sweetheart. Run along.

Natalia: That was quite a speech.

Alan: Well, I'm always happy to talk to Emma about our family. If she ever has any questions, Natalia, you just have her call me, okay?

Natalia: I have one. How do you do it?

Alan: Do what?

Natalia: How do you just lie right to a little girl's face like that?

Natalia: Emma is very young. So, of course she's going to believe everything you say when you speak like that, with such authority. But one day she is going to grow up, and she's going to realize that you just fed her a bunch of hypocritical nonsense.

Alan: Hypocritical? How can you say that?

Natalia: You just sat there and told her that the Spaulding’s are always there for each other. That the Spaulding’s never, ever forget their own. Too bad you forgot all about Rafe.

Alan: Let me ask you a question. How quickly you have forgotten about me taking in you and Rafe when you were all alone and destitute to the world.

Natalia: And now? Rafe doesn't mean anything to you.

Alan: That is not true. He's in jail.

Natalia: Yeah, well, you spent a little time there, too, haven't you?

Alan: Well, there's nothing I can do for him now.

Natalia: Yes, there is. You could call. You could write. You could come visit. You could ask me about the grandson that you once claimed the future of Spaulding, the great hope.

Alan: Look, it's not my fault that he committed a felony and landed in jail.

Natalia: And one day if Emma makes a mistake, what happens then? Is she just going to be off your list?

Alan: Are you finished?

Natalia: Yes.

Alan: Good. Because you're quickly removing yourself from my list.

Olivia: Um... I'm sorry?

Natalia: Why? This is the best I've felt all year. (Laughter)

Coop: You're Gerald Brooks, right? You work at that fancy law firm down the street? Look, you've won a lot of cases in the area.

Brooks: I've won more than I've lost, why?

Coop: You know the assistant that you have working for you?

Brooks: What, the ditzy law student? What about her?

Coop: Yeah. You know, it doesn't seem like you've really given her much to prove herself with. She can contribute a lot to your case if you would just let her do it. You know? This may come as a shock to someone like you, but she really does care about people and helping them.

Brooks: You're not a law student, are you?

Coop: No.

Brooks: First year of law school, they all want to save the world. Wait until your friend graduates. She'll learn that helping people doesn't pay.

Coop: Pardon me, but I think you've got it wrong about Beth.

Brooks: What's it to you? You're a little young for her, don't you think? More power to you, my man, she does have a...

Coop: You know what? I would stop talking right about now if I were you.

Brooks: Or what? You're going to sue me? (Laughs) Why are you still sitting here?

Beth: Anything else, Mr. Brooks?

Brooks: No. Let's get out of here. Oh, I almost forgot to leave a tip.

Woman: Oh, it was a shock to us, too. Oh, a third kid is going to cost us a fortune. You know how much private school costs these days? No, if I have another boy, I don't know what I'll do. Uh-uh.

Reva: Excuse me.

Jeffrey: Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me.

Woman: Hold on, Stephanie. Yeah, who... who are you?

Jeffrey: I'm just some guy who's having a baby. Well, I'm not having a baby. My... my wife is having a baby. That's her. This is Reva. She's a... she's a handful.

Reva: (Laughs)

Jeffrey: Yeah, I'll bet... I bet our kid's going to be, too, right? He's going to... he's going to cost a fortune, right? He's going to eat us out of house and home. He's going to end up in detention the whole time. But... but who cares? Because the fact of the matter is, our kid is somewhat of a miracle. And I bet your kid is, too. But I don't have to tell you that because you're a parent, right? And it's going to be worth it, every penny. All of the heartache, just to see him smile. Anyway, I'm sorry to bother you. Please go... go back to your thing. Ready to go?

Reva: (Laughs) Yes. Where?

Jeffrey: Anywhere you want.

Reva: (Laughs)

Josh: Okay. The box is unpacked, the food is in the fridge. The bear is... on his way back to where he came from. I guess I might as well go, too.

Shayne: Okay. Sounds good. Thank you... for the stuff. The place feels more... homey now.

Josh: Sure. If you need anything else, you let me know, okay?

Shayne: Will do.

Josh: Um, is there anything else you want to talk about before I go?

Shayne: Nope. All good.

Josh: Okay. I'll see you.

Shayne: Okay.

Dinah: You want to help your kid?

Josh: Uh, doesn't every parent want to help their kid?

Dinah: Good point. Come with me.

Josh: Okay.

Olivia: Hey, do you have that... that other contract?

Natalia: Yes, I have it right here. And I made copies and I sent it to every single board member.

Olivia: Good. I want to get the ball rolling on this.

Natalia: Do you know where Emma’s ballet schedule is?

Olivia: It's on the fridge. The recital's next Monday.

Natalia: Oh, Monday, good. Because then I can drop her off...

Olivia: And I can be there in time to see the curtain go up. Groovy! Hey! Hey, what's up?

Emma: Grandpa talked about a lot of stuff, but I don't think he really answered my question.

Natalia: Hmm. Well, that's because your grandfather was doing a lot of talking. And I think if you're trying to tell someone something, you should show them, rather than using a bunch of big, fancy words. Do you know what I mean?

Olivia: Hmm. Good.

Natalia: Oh, will you do me a favor?

Olivia: Mm-hmm?

Natalia: Please remind me to check on Rafe’s medication because I don't want any mix-ups at the prison.

Olivia: I already took care of it.

Natalia: You did?

Olivia: Yup.

Natalia: Thank you.

Olivia: You're welcome.

Natalia: You're such a lifesaver.

Olivia: Hey, we'll have to do something about this bid. It's just not going to be good enough.

Natalia: Oh.

Olivia: Can you check on that for me?

Natalia: Yeah.

Olivia: Em, you want a sandwich?

Emma: Sure.

Reva: Do you know there is pre-natal yoga? There's post-natal yoga. There's mommy and me music and meditation. I mean, I knew things have changed since the last time I did this. But, come on, there's a million different ways now-- and rules-- for rearing a child. It's ridiculous!

Jeffrey: I can't wait to learn each and every one of them. I hope there's a pamphlet so I can study it.

Reva: There is! It's not exactly the LSATs. (Laughs)

Jeffrey: Well, that's too bad because I'm a whiz at standardized tests.)Cell phone rings) It's Colin, and I'll handle it...

Reva: Oh...

Jeffrey: ...Okay? And I'm going to set up next week's appointment.

Reva: I'm very impressed!

Reva: Okay. Hi. Just a little addendum to that last thing I said. I think your daddy is going to do just fine.

Dinah: I like your son.

Josh: And?

Dinah: Nothing. I like him. I like him, and I want to help him out. God knows why, but I do. Only I think I'm the wrong person to do it.

Josh: I'm not really following you.

Dinah: Your son's has, um... a bit of an attitude problem, if that's what you want to call it.

Josh: Well, he is confined to a wheelchair, you know? He's in a lot of pain. He's hurting, he’s...

Dinah: He needs some tough love, maybe. Or maybe just a really good friend. Whatever he needs, I, uh... can't give it to him. I think you are a better candidate.

Josh: You do?

Dinah: I do. Look, we both know that Shayne is not going to let you close enough to him to help him out. So I think you have to help him without letting him know you know he needs help. Say that five times fast.

Brooks: We're suing your landlord for the entire cost of the medical bills, as well as the psychological toll this effort took on you.

Ms. Wilson: But that hospital stay was for a foot surgery. It was totally unrelated.

Brooks: Do you want my advice, or not?

Beth: I think what Ms. Wilson is trying to say is that she would like this case to remain as civil as possible.

Brooks: This is court, not the playground.

Beth: But it doesn't have to be done this way. In a similar case, a deal was reached outside of the courtroom. Perhaps if you spoke to your landlord one-on-one, you could reach a solution that would be comfortable for both of you.

Brooks: What the hell do you think you're doing?

Beth: I'm serving our client. You ought to try it sometime.

Alan: Buzz, have you seen my wife?

Buzz: Your... wife?

Alan: Beth.

Buzz: She left with a hot-shot lawyer.

Coop: Dad, can I talk to you for a second?

Buzz: Yeah, sure, kiddo. What?

Coop: You know, maybe we could go upstairs and talk in private.

Buzz: What... what, is this about the finances? Did I screw up that bad?

Coop: I think we might be losing the restaurant.

Coming up on "Guiding Light"...

Buzz: How the hell can I be on the verge of losing the restaurant?

Coop: You owe more money than this place is even worth, Dad.

Alan: Your son's right, Buzz. You're up a creek.

Beth: Is something wrong?

Coop: It's Pop. We're just having some money problems.

Beth: You're telling me he could lose Company?

Lillian: Not if Alan comes to the rescue.

Alan: Me?
