Previously on "Guiding Light"...

Dinah: I really can help you if you just... if you let me. He hasn't called anyone, not even his lawyer?

Officer: Not even his girlfriend.

Dinah: He doesn't have a girlfriend.

Beth: Coop means the world to me.

Buzz: And he seems to feel the same way you do. Do me a favor, don't hurt him.

(Knock on the door)

Beth: Hey there.

Coop: Hi. How are you? You have perfect timing. There is something here I want you to see.

Beth: You are my good luck charm. You know that?

Coop: Yeah?

Beth: Oh, I can't believe that I... I stood up to that pompous jerk of a lawyer, and I actually gave the client advice that got her everything that she wanted. And I just... I feel like I could be good at being a lawyer.

Coop: I think that you could be great at being a lawyer. So I take it that you won your case, yes. So this is the first of many. You are amazing.

Beth: Oh, and get this. Gerald Brooks, the pompous...

Coop: Ass?

Beth: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. He is recommending me to the Dean. How weird is that? I actually got his respect in all of this. Oh, Coop... oh, Coop, I just feel. I feel really, really good.

Coop: Well, you always feel good. (Laughter) Come here. I love seeing you this happy. I don't know, it's just the way your eyes sparkle.

Beth: Well, I stood up to him because of you. I have you to thank for it. So get ready to be thanked properly. (Laughter) Do you want to save anything?

Coop: No. It can wait. It can totally wait. Are you kidding?

Lillian: Oh, Alan. I mean, it's just lovely. But what's the occasion?

Alan: Well, I just wanted to thank you for reminding me that I need to put Beth first.

Lillian: Well, when I reminded you of that the other day, you acted like I was crazy.

Alan: Hence the expensive present. I admit I was wrong.

Lillian: You admit you were wrong?

Alan: Uh-huh.

Lillian: Now I'm suspicious.

Alan: Well, I'm in a generous mood these days. If you don't believe me, ask Buzz.

Lillian: I know. Thank you. Thank you for bailing him out, Alan.

Alan: Well, Buzz was there when I needed help, and I was glad to it. But the real reason I did it was for Beth.

Marina: I came as soon as I heard. What did you do, fall on the ice and hit your head?

Buzz: Where did you hear that?

Marina: Why else would you go into partnership with Alan Spaulding? I'd rather deal the devil.

Buzz: Let's just say that I gave him a place to stay when he was down and out, and he's returning the favor. It's just business, that's all.

Marina: Have you ever heard of banks?

Buzz: Yes, I've heard of banks. They turned me down.

Mel: Hey.

Mallet: Hey, Mel.

Mel: Look, if you're going to ask me about the arson case, I have been in court since the wee hours, and my feet are killing me. So just ask at your own risk.

Mallet: Hold on, Mel. Can I... can I ask you something? It won't take long. I just... I just want to ask you one thing.

Mel: Do I need my lawyer pin stripes or my scrubs?

Mallet: Um... Marina and I would really like to have a baby. So how do I make that happen?

Jeffrey: She's very pretty.

Dinah: Yeah, she sure is.

Jeffrey: A friend of yours? Is she in some kind of trouble?

Dinah: I love how you assume that even my friends are screwed up. Actually, she belongs to Shayne. This is the girl he left behind, or she left him. Either way, he is not so chatty on the subject.

Jeffrey: So she's the reason for all of the attitude?

Dinah: Probably. All I know is that he has been carrying his picture around with him everywhere. It means something to him.

Jeffrey: So what do you want from me?

Dinah: You have tried to knock some sense into him. I know that. And so has Josh, and so have I, and nothing. I want to help him. I know I can help him. Maybe this girl can get some results. Will you help me find her?

Shayne: Yo! Do you want to keep it down! You're ruining my spa experience.

Reva: Oh, then put me down for a pedi and a mani. I want the works.

Shayne: Mom?

Reva: Yeah, they said you weren't seeing any visitors, but I'm not really a visitor. You can think of me as your neighbor.

Beth: Mm, I have lots and lots of good news.

Coop: Uh-huh. And lots and lots of buttons again. You know I can't do buttons. Can you get snaps?

Beth: (Laughing) Alan has backed off the wedding. What a relief.

Coop: That's great. That's really great. That is great. Wow, I like it when you win cases because you seem to have so much more energy.

Beth: Yeah?

Coop: Wow! So when are you going to be moving out of the house?

Beth: Well, I would like to, but I canít. Because I just got Alan to help your dad, and I can't get him all riled up now.

Coop: I don't care. I don't care. I don't care. I can take Alan.

Beth: Sure, in a fair fight, but he doesn't fight fair.

Coop: Beth, Beth, Beth, you don't need Alan. You don't need him.

Beth: Yeah, well, unfortunately, I do. Hey, Coop, we have the best of everything right in this little room. Why ruin it? Come on, we can have it all.

Coop: Beth, this may be enough for you, but it's not for me. Not anymore.

Buzz: I am so, so, so sorry about that. I just... with all of these money problems and everything, I just forgot about you and Mallet... or what Mallet canít...

Marina: It's okay. It's okay. Mallet has been nothing but honest with me from the start, about this whole baby situation. I went into this with my eyes wide open.

Buzz: Any luck with the doctors?

Marina: No. No. We thought that there may be a chance that we could reverse things, but it turns out it's not meant to be. You know? So we just have to find another alternative.

Buzz: It's tough.

Marina: You know, when I think about it, there is no one on earth that deserves to be a father more than Mallet.

Buzz: Why is it that every... every single thing doesn't turn out the way it is supposed to be.

Marina: I'm sorry. Grandpa, please, it's okay. I'm sorry if I seemed bummed out. It's okay.

Buzz: No, honey, it's not you.

Marina: What is it? Money troubles?

Buzz: No. Alan solved that.

Marina: If you don't tell me, I'm going to go upstairs and I'm going to ask Coop.

Buzz: You canít.

Marina: Why? No one can disturb the genius writer at work?

Buzz: Because he's not alone.

Marina: That little sneak. He has someone up there?

Buzz: Beth Raines.

Mallet: Do you remember, Mel, when this all seemed so simple. I mean, you know, you got married, you went on your honeymoon, and the next thing you know everybody is whispering about the bun in the oven. (Laughter) I just want Marina to be able to carry the baby and deliver the baby.

Mel: Even if it's not...

Mallet: Well, it would be mine. I would walk the halls with him at 2:00 A.M. to get him to fall back to sleep again, and teach him to throw a football and ride a bike and get the girl. I mean, you don't be a complete gentleman around girls.

Mel: Right. You know, Marina is really lucky to have you.

Mallet: Thank you. I'm really lucky to have her. I'm the lucky one. I don't want Marina to miss out on the most amazing experience you can have in your life just because she picked me.

Mel: Well, I think a donor is the best bet then.

Mallet: Right. Well, then, I need you to put on your lawyer hat and fast forward.

Mel: I know what you're going to ask me. What if the kid grows up and wants to know his or her birth father?

Mallet: Yeah, exactly. Or worse. What if we raise him and love him, and he grows up and he wants to live with his biological father. You know, that would break Marina's heart.

Mel: Just Marina's?

Mallet: And it would break my heart, too. So what can we do? Can we protect ourselves? Are there any guarantees that that won't happen?

Mel: You can't do that.

Dinah: You know, thank you for listening, but I know that you're not going to help me...

Jeffrey: Dinah! Dinah... I'll do it.

Dinah: Really? Just like that? I don't have to sell you?

Jeffrey: Well, not that I wouldn't have found your efforts entertaining, but... there's another issue that I'm concerned with here. You know, after a lifetime of putting myself first, I finally realize that there is something more important than me. And that would be my wife and the baby that she's carrying.

Dinah: So you'll make a few calls?

Jeffrey: If this girl can help Shayne to solve his problems, that's going to be one less thing for Reva to worry about, and that's all that matters to me.

Shayne: What the hell are you doing here?

Reva: I was littering, right underneath the "Do Not Litter" sign. And I should probably warn you, Officer Diaz has absolutely no sense of humor.

Shayne: You got arrested for littering?

Reva: Yeah, well, I might have kicked the officer in the shins a couple of times when he was giving me my summons.

Shayne: Yeah, that's what I thought. So Marina sold me out. You did this on purpose.

Reva: Hey, it worked, didn't it! You honestly think I'm going to let you stay in here all alone?

Shayne: Is that supposed to be funny? You're in the middle of a high-risk pregnancy, Mom.

Reva: Look, Shayne, if the chemo isn't hurting the baby, then neither will a stay in a jail cell. Besides, you'll always be my baby. And if you're in trouble, I will be here. So you're just going to have to deal with it!

Shayne: Look, I deserve to be here. All right? You donít.

Reva: No, no! You're in here, because you were trying to help a girl who was being accosted in the park.

Shayne: No. I'm in here, because I assaulted a man who is pressing charges, and I don't need my mommy baby-sitting me while I'm in jail.

Reva: Okay. If you don't like it, then post bail and leave! Otherwise, you're just stuck with me.

Shayne: What kind of weird parenting trip is this? Like, quality time in the clink? What is next for us? Matching mom and son shanks?

Reva: Actually, we could talk. Because every time I try, you run away as fast as those wheels will take you. At least in here, you can't get very far!

Shayne: Because I do not need to talk!

Reva: Really? You could have fooled me!

Officer: You two have company.

Shayne: This is good. Ah, this is good. Yeah, it's good. Hi, Dad.

Beth: Can't you just put your pride aside and do what's best for us?

Coop: For Alan? What you mean is what's best for Alan.

Beth: Just because I'm not leaving Alan, doesn't mean that I don't care about you. I'm not putting you second. I'm not.

Coop: That's funny. Because right now, Beth, it certainly feels like you are. You get to stay a lawyer, you get to have all of the power and privilege of still being a Spaulding, and when you feel guilty, you can run back here, where you can ask Alan for a fistful of green.

Beth: You're father needed that money. I did that for you. I... I... that was not to soothe my conscience. It wasnít. I don't feel guilty about this.

Coop: Well, maybe that is worse.

Beth: I am doing this to protect you because I care, Coop. Do you have any idea what Alan would do if he found out?

Coop: Don't you get it? I want Alan to find out. I need Alan to find out!

Beth: That is not...

Coop: And I don't need you coming back in here, crawling into my bed, just to thank me for getting you some points at law school. If you want to do me a favor, why don't you just send me a thank you card instead.

Marina: Does Alan know?

Buzz: No, not yet.

Marina: Thank goodness. This is... this is bad. This is really, really bad. Grandpa, this is bad. Coop is shacking up with Alanís wife.

Buzz: His ex.

Marina: Okay, then, Coop's first girlfriend's mother. The granddaughter of Alan. This is a soap opera.

Buzz: More like a horror movie.

Alan: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, watch out, Buzz! I don't want you to burn yourself. My goodness. I'm thinking about expanding this place, and I don't want my main cook to be hurt.

Buzz: I'm touched.

Alan: Where is Beth?

Marina: Beth?

Alan: Yeah, where is she?

Buzz: Your... your Beth?

Alan: Yes. I mean, I saw her car parked out in the lot, and I was just wondering where she might be.

Buzz: Oh, Beth, look who is here.

Beth: Hi. Um... I thought I saw you come in here. Um, I'm actually finished with my classes for the day.

Alan: Good.

Beth: So why don't we go home and have cook whip us some lunch.

Alan: Well, we don't need to go home. I own this restaurant. Why don't we have a meal right here, huh?

Beth: I want to check on Peyton. So... I'll see you all later.

Alan: All right. Listen, the next time I see you, I want to talk to you about this menu. There's a couple of suggestions I'd like to make, Buzz.

Mel: You know, I wish I could give you an easy answer, but there is no guarantee on how a kid will turn out, or who your kid will be.

Mallet: All right. So it's just kind of a roll of the genetic dice?

Mel: Yeah. You can get an Einstein or a Mozart or not. You know, but isn't that the fun of having kids? The great unknown? The hope? The surprise?

Mallet: Right. So even if a kid has your chromosomes, he can still decide to grow up and hate your guts.

Mel: Pretty much. So if this is at all too risky for you, I think you should stop shopping for those minivans right now.

Mallet: Uh-huh. Is this the doctor talking or the lawyer?

Mel: It's neither. It's a mother. Because, um... having kids changes everything.

Jeffrey: Okay. We're all set. I sent her photo to some high-level info people I know in Washington, so...

Dinah: Oh, good. It sounds official. All right. Give me a call when you hear something?

Jeffrey: Yeah.

Dinah: Great.

Jeffrey: Dinah, I told you my reasons for doing this. What are yours? Do I need to be worried?

Dinah: You know what? Um... for too long, I have been the center of my universe. Whenever I would love somebody, like Hart or Mallet, on even my brother, I messed it up. So maybe it's time to do some good somewhere for once in my selfish life.

Jeffrey: Redemption's a bitch, right? You take it where you can get it.

Dinah: I'm really just trying to help Shayne. That's it.

Jeffrey: There is one condition to my helping you.

Dinah: Okay. Name it.

Jeffrey: In this great need to cleanse karma, just make sure Reva doesn't get hurt. Are we clear?

Josh: Help me to understand this, son. How is it that we keep ending up in this place? And why did you drag your mother into this?

Shayne: Me? No, no, no! She followed me here.

Reva: He's right. I got arrested all on my own.

Josh: Well, you must be very proud of yourself, then.

Reva: Here comes the lecture.

Josh: Why do you always go to extremes, Reva? You got yourself arrested on purpose? Why didn't you just call me and let me handle it?!

Reva: I can take care of my son.

Shayne: And your son can take care of himself.

Josh: Well, you're both doing a bang-up job so far.

Reva: He needed to talk to someone!

Shayne: I'm not the one who assaulted a cop to get some face time with her son. I think that you need to talk to someone.

Josh: Son, just don't talk to your mother like that.

Shayne: Don't talk to my mother like that? What, am I ten?

Reva: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Don't put him on the spot like that. He's suffering.

Shayne: Suffering? Do either one of you listen to me?

Mallet: Would you guys keep it down! We can hear you all the way in booking. Thank you!

Josh: What, are we bothering the pimps and prostitutes down the hall?

Shayne: They've been model citizens compared to us.

Josh: Look, my son was trying to be a Good Samaritan, and you threw him in jail. Why don't you think about arresting the criminals.

Reva: I agree with that.

Mallet: Look, Josh, just step inside and join the family.

Josh: Oh, come on. What's the charge?

Mallet: For being a royal pain.

Reva: Is that legal?

Shayne: No. No, no, no, no, no. Wait a minute. Mallet, I need some quiet time. Can I get my own cell?

Mallet: These are the cells.

Reva: Hey, you know what? We tried to give you your own space, and that didn't exactly work out so well, did it?

Josh: Okay. Maybe this is a good thing. The three of us will stay in here, we'll talk a little bit, go through some things. Maybe we'll get some answers.

Reva: Mallet, I need my pre-natal vitamins and a big glass of water, maybe with ice... ice cold. A pregnant woman in a cell; prenatal vitamins and a big glass of ice water.

Mallet: You're getting all of that? You're hearing this, right?

Coop: Throw it away. Throw it in the pizza oven, recycle it. I don't care.

Buzz: Coop.

Coop: Dad, get rid of it!

Buzz: You worked day and night.

Coop: I know I worked day and night on it, because I thought it was going to be the next great American classic. But now I know it is nothing more than a fairytale.

Buzz: Don't be too hasty. Look, I've got things burning, but we haven't finished talking about this.

Coop: He told you, didn't he?

Marina: Coop, I'm the one...

Coop: He told you. Thatís... that's great.

Marina: Please, okay?

Coop: You know what? I don't need another lecture from another Cooper, so whatever your going to say, just save it, okay?

Marina: Coop, I picked Alan-Michael Spaulding, right? I picked Danny Santos. I picked Cyrus Foley. I'm the last person to throw stones around here. But Alan does... he throws big ones.

Coop: I'm sick and tired of hearing how people are so scared of that man. He goes on his merry little way, buying up real estate, or even people for that matter. I'm not one of those people who can be bought.

Marina: You've got that look in your eye. You are not going to head over to his house on a bulldozer again, are you?

Coop: Maybe.

Marina: Coop, no! No, you are not alone in this. You remember that, okay? Your father has been dragged into this... hey! Coop! You know those dramatic types. So moody.

Blake: Yeah. Um, coffee, milk, two sugars.

Alan: Well, you sure were quiet in the car. Are... are you starting to have second thoughts?

Beth: I'm sorry, what?

Alan: Second thoughts about me buying Company? I mean, you couldn't wait to get out of there earlier.

Beth: You know, when you do something nice for someone, you need to try to be protective, and you'd think they would be a little more appreciative.

Alan: Yeah, but you know something, Beth, he's not like you and me. He's never been a person of vision or big dreams.

Beth: No, no. You're wrong. He does have big dreams and big ideas.

Alan: Well, I mean, he's a good cook, but he's not Wolfgang Puck.

Beth: Buzz... right. Right. Of course you're right.

Alan: You know, I really shouldn't be too hard on him. He's going through a tough time now, and God knows, we have all been through those. And he was there for me when I went through mine. And I'm happy to be able to help him out now.

Beth: That almost sounded sincere.

Alan: Well, you see, I can afford to be generous. For once in my life, no one, except your mother, is dating a Cooper.

Beth: You know, I'm... I'm kind of tired. Would you have Hilda make me a pot of tea?

Alan: Of course. I'll be right back. Okay?

Lillian: There's a wonderful quote: "Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive."

Reva: Mallet...

Mallet: Uh-huh?

Reva: Really, my son should not be in here. He was just being a good citizen.

Mallet: With his fists?

Shayne: Is there no quiet corner in this...

Jeffrey: Reva!

Reva: Hi, honey. I can explain.

Jeffrey: No, no, no. I think I've got the picture. Shayne got into trouble again. Shayne got thrown into jail again. You two, feeling guilty, came after him, and now we have the Lewis family reunion. How am I doing so far? Did I leave anything out?

Reva: I just... I didn't want to abandon him.

Shayne: Abandon me? Please... Jeff...

Jeffrey: You should have known better. You should have dragged her out of here before they locked her up!

Josh: Come on, Jeffrey, nobody controls Reva. If you haven't figured that out, you haven't been paying attention.

Reva: I'm not leaving here.

Jeffrey: You most certainly are.

Reva: No. Jeffrey, this is something I have to do.

Jeffrey: We'll talk about that later. Right now I'm going to go upstairs to arrange bail to get you out of here. Josh, take her to the courtroom and keep her there, by force, if necessary.

Reva: I'm worried about my son.

Jeffrey: I'm worried about mine.

Reva: Shayne, are you going to be okay?

Shayne: Go home, Mom.

Josh: Let's go, Reva. Come on.

Jeffrey: Thanks, Mallet.

Mallet: Uh-huh.

Jeffrey: Do you know how many people are trying to help you? Dinah came to me, desperate to find someone to get through to you. So I'm using my contacts to locate your girlfriend. I thought she could talk some sense into you.

Shayne: No! No! Jeffrey, no! Jeffrey! We need to talk! Guard! Guard! I'm ready for my phone call now! I need a lawyer! Guard! Guard! I need to get out of here!

Mallet: Hey, babe! Wow, and I thought I had a bad day. Been a little bit of a crazy day?

Marina: H'mmm.

Mallet: How crazy was it?

Marina: On a scale of one to ten, about a hundred. Promise me... promise me this is going to stay between you and me.

Mallet: Yeah, that's kind of the married guy's oath. I promise.

Marina: Coop is doing the horizontal hula with Beth Raines.

Mallet: Whoa! Wow!

Marina: My grandfather is a mess. He's a total mess. He's known all along. He has to keep covering for Coop.

Mallet: Oh, wow. Well, Coop better come to his senses before Alan gets a clue.

Marina: Yeah, no kidding. And my grandfather needs a break, you know? He has been through so much. He just... he needs something hopeful in this life instead a front row seat to a complete train wreck.

Mallet: Maybe a baby would do the trick.

Marina: Yeah, I don't think that's really good for him right now. He's really busy running the joint. Maybe a nice bottle of expensive scotch.

Mallet: Maybe... maybe our baby would do the trick. I think we should take the leap.

Marina: How?

Mallet: Look, I want to have a baby with you. So I'm thinking artificial insemination.

Marina: No.

Mallet: I thought that you wanted a baby.

Marina: All I want right now is my husband.

Blake: Whoa! Did you see these condos they're putting up on the lake? Do you know how much those puppies are going for?

Buzz: Did you see a stack of papers here? Do you know what happened to them?

Blake: No. Sorry.

Buzz: Oh, Coop must have come back and got them. I guess that's what happened. He was just bluffing me.

Lillian: I understand what you're doing. I know that there is nothing more addictive, more exciting, more wonderful than forbidden love, and nothing more dangerous.

Beth: My situation's different. Your best friend died.

Lillian: Don't you dare go there, Beth!

Beth: I'm sorry. I just... I thought that you... you would understand.

Lillian: I do understand. I do understand! I know how exciting it is, and I know how disastrous it is for everybody.

Beth: You know, I donít... I don't need a lecture. I don't need a warning. I don't need a big scarlet letter "A." I just need...

Lillian: More men. More men and more men!

Beth: I need my mother! I just need my mother. (Sobbing)

Lillian: Oh, sweetheart. Oh, precious, I'm always here for you. You know I am.

Beth: But you just can't kiss it and make it better like you used to.

Lillian: Did I ever really made it better?

Beth: Of course you did.

Lillian: I just feel all these things you do are all my fault at the root of it.

Beth: It's not fair, you know? It's not fair.

Lillian: Talk to me.

Beth: I know that it's wrong, but I just... it just feels so right. It's like these last few years I've just been living on the sidelines of my life. And Coop comes along, and... and I'm alive again. You know?

Lillian: What about Alan?

Beth: He loves me, but he thinks that he knows me so well, that he doesn't really see me anymore. Not like Coop. He sees me with his whole heart and soul, you know? Tell me it will get better.

Lillian: Sweetie, I can't tell you that. I know you're going to suffer. And I know you're going to make one of those men suffer and suffer and suffer.

Alan: Beth, is something wrong?

Lillian: She's so tired, you know? She's been working so hard at law school and the baby.

Beth: I'm sorry I'm just being silly. You know, I'm fine. I just need that tea, I guess.

Lillian: I'll go get it. I'll go get it.

Alan: Beth, is this only fatigue, or did someone hurt you? Did Gerald Brooks bully you in any way? Because if he did, I will go over there right now and straighten him out if this school is not treating you fairly, I will have it shut down. Do you understand?

Beth: Nothing extreme, right?

Alan: Beth, please... you mean everything to me. You are my whole world. I hope... I hope you know how much I love you.

Coop: Hi. I hope I'm not interrupting.

Reva: I feel like I'm sitting in the principal's office. Do you feel like that?

Josh: This is ridiculous.

Jeffrey: Sit! I've arranged bail for the two of you.

Reva: I'm not leaving without Shayne.

Jeffrey: That's the wrong answer.

Josh: Reva, just let me handle this, okay? I'll call our lawyer, and I'll have him come down here and arrange bail.

Reva: Okay. That works.

Jeffrey: You know, Shayne isn't my kid, but that baby you're carrying is, and it gives me a very large stake in this, Reva. So if Shayne can't stay out of trouble for more than five minutes, I'm going to send him back C.O.D. to any country that will take him. That way I won't have to take my time and energy getting my sick, pregnant wife out of jail.

Reva: You wouldn't do that, would you?

Jeffrey: Don't tempt me! There is one more thing I've got to do upstairs. Then I'm going to come back here, and I'm going to take you home. And you can yell and scream and throw a tantrum, but I am not going to let anything happen to you. I'm expecting a fax. I may have some information about Shayneís girlfriend.

Reva: Really? Oh, that would be great.

Jeffrey: Don't move.

Shayne: It's my life! My private life! What part of leave me alone aren't you understanding?

Dinah: Well, then I guess you don't want me to bail you out? One hour ago you were desperate to stay in jail. Here. And now you're practically ripping the bars off to get out.

Shayne: What do you want from me?

Dinah: Can you give me a minute? Thank you. I would like the truth? I told you the truth. And now you tell me. What is the deal with the girl? It's very obvious you're crazy about her. But she doesn't call you. Did she dump you? Is that why you go all incredible hulk when people look at you the wrong way?

Shayne: She's just a girl. Now, would you get me out of here. Please get me out of here.

Dinah: Shayne, if you are so in love with her, then why hasn't she come to your rescue? Instead of little old me. Why?

Marina: You know this... us? I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

Mallet: Good. Me, either.

Marina: I do want a baby, but it's not like my biological clock is ticking. No more baby talk for a while.

Mallet: Okay. You've got it. That's a deal. From now on, I'm just... sports talk.

Blake: Margot? How is my favorite publisher? Hi, sweetheart. Listen, I have a hot property. Do you remember that author I was representing a while ago? Yes, Henry Bradshaw. Well, he did it again. He's got another gem. And I'm going to give you 24 hours to, um, pick this thing up, otherwise it's going to auction. Um, well... what's it about? Um, well, it's a true story. It's a love story. It's about this young man who is inspired by the love of a beautiful, older woman. In the book, she's a blonde, but in real life, she's a red head.

Alan: Well, what brings you here, Mr. Bradshaw.

Coop: We have something in common, and I think we should settle it right now.

Beth: Coop.

Coop: You asked me to be the point person for this loan. So I had a financial arrangement drawn up. Have your lawyers look at it and get back to me.

Alan: Well, that sounds great. And, you know, I happen to be standing by a budding new lawyer right here. So why don't you and Beth go over this together? That is, if you're up for it.

Beth: Yes. Yes, that's fine.

Alan: Good. Good.

Beth: Give us a few minutes.

Alan: Yeah. I never thought a Spaulding and a Cooper would have an arrangement like this, but I think it's going to work out just fine.

Beth: Oh! Oh, God, I thought you were going to tell him everything.

Coop: No, Beth. I'm going to let you do that.

Beth: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you. I've been happy... I guess I got carried away. We shouldnít. We shouldn't, not here. We shouldnít.

Josh: Jeffrey?

Reva: Is this something about Shayneís girlfriend? What is it? Oh, no.

Coming up on "Guiding Light"...

Beth: Itís not what you think.

Lizzie: You slipped. Coop caught you with his lips. You should tell Granddad. I mean you guys aren't married anymore, right? What's the harm in it.

Beth: Lizzie, don't tell! Don't tell him!
