Bill: Disgusting. Phillip.
Lizzie: I want you.
Cyrus: You want me? You sure about that?
Lizzie: Yeah. You're the only person here. It's all about knowing what you can change and what you can’t.
Lizzie: Do you find me attractive?
Lizzie: Then tell me you want me.
Cyrus: What man wouldn't?
Lizzie: Do you want me?
Cyrus: Of course I do.
Lizzie: Then right now. I want you to make love to me right now. (Music playing)
(knock on the door)
Natalia: Hi. How are you?
Buzz: Oh, a home of your own.
Natalia: Pretty amazing. Let me take your coat.
Buzz: The ups and downs and the mortgage and the loans, but I have to say I'm pretty darn impressed.
Buzz: A house warming gifts for you and for the trouble-maker.
Natalia: Olivia's not a trouble-maker-- she's not always a trouble-maker. Oh!
Buzz: I figured, you know, you could see Rafe and record a message, and when you go to bed.
Natalia: Oh, I can listen to his voice. That is a great idea. Thank you so much.
Buzz: This is for you, too, and the big one. How did Em's speech go? She was at the restaurant. She was all excited about it.
Natalia: It was surprising. Yeah, it got an interesting reaction.
Beth: Coop, Coop, Coop, I've got to go. I've got to go.
Coop: You want me to stop? You want me to stop right now?
Beth: Coop, it's not going to solve anything.
Coop: Tell me to stop. Tell me that this isn't what you want?
Beth: I can't always have what I want.
Coop: Why not? Why can't you? What? What? What is it?
Beth: Nothing. It's nothing, I guess. Nothing.
Coop: Do you want me to lock the door?
Beth: (Laughing) No! I should go. I should go. I should go.
Olivia: All right, you want to talk about the Emma situation? Talk. You asked me here, remember? Alan, you're as white as a ghost. What's the matter?
Lizzie: This is good. This is good. We were friends; we work together. This is good.
Cyrus: Is it?
Cyrus: Are you okay?
Lizzie: Yes. Yes, I will be because I know what I'm doing this time.
Cyrus: Do you?
Lizzie: I do, so stop asking me questions.
Lizzie: Why? Because...
Cyrus: Because you know you're going to regret this, probably tomorrow.
Lizzie: I think you should let me worry about that.
Cyrus: I work for you. I'm just learning the ropes and I'm trying to figure out how I can be more useful to you.
Lizzie: Useful to me? Golden opportunity to be more useful.
Cyrus: But I might mess things up.
Lizzie: Are you joking right now?
Cyrus: What if you wake up tomorrow and say, "What the hell have I done? I never want to see this guy again?"
Lizzie: I won’t. I won’t.
Cyrus: And if that happens, you'll have to fire me and I need this job.
Lizzie: Let me give you a little insight into this job.
Lizzie: Rule number one: Lizzie gets whatever she wants.
Cyrus: Lizzie, I think we can really build something substantial together if we do this right. Do you understand?
Lizzie: Yeah. Yeah, I understand. You don't want to get fired tomorrow. So I can take care of that this very minute. You're fired.
Bill: I missed him. (Rock music playing) (footsteps approaching) Phillip? Phillip?! Phillip?!
Natalia: So Emma’s family is unique. Obviously her presentation was going to be a little bit different.
Buzz: How so?
Natalia: Well, the title was "My Two Mommies."
Buzz: You and Olivia?
Buzz: Okay. (Laughs)
Natalia: So... some of the parents -- well, you know, some people in general kind of, um... they thought the mommies were not just regular mommies.
Buzz: Well, Olivia runs a hotel, and you run yourself ragged, so...
Natalia: No, that's not really what I meant. Some of the parents and Emma’s teacher kind of jumped to the wrong conclusions.
Buzz: The wrong... oh! Oh! You and Olivia...
Natalia: Yeah. Yeah. It's just outrageous.
Buzz: Yeah, you bet it is.
Natalia: I mean, who would have thought everyone would think that? I mean, can you imagine? Okay, obviously, you can.
Natalia: It's fine. It happened. It's over -- almost. It's almost over.
Natalia: Yeah, well, Alan read Emma’s paper on the internet, and now he is all over Olivia, going on and on about what is best for his granddaughter.
Buzz: You know, you've got to hand it to Alan, whatever the situation is, he'll find a way to overreact.
Olivia: Hey. Hey, you need to talk to me. Is it your heart?
Alan: You might say that.
Olivia: You breathless? You dizzy? Do you want me to get an ambulance?
Alan: No. No ambulance. I'll be all right.
Olivia: Okay. Let's go inside.
Alan: No, Olivia, it's closed.
Olivia: Let's talk about Emma--
Alan: If you want to talk about Emma, we'll go to your house. I'll be able to see if she's all right there.
Olivia: No. I don't want to upset her, Alan!
Coop: You just going to go running off now?
Beth: No. You were right?
Coop: I'm sorry, what?
Coop: Say it again?
Beth: You were right.
Coop: Okay, what was I right about?
Beth: What these past couple of weeks have meant. The fact that I can't walk away from you. I told you that I needed time to figure out things, but time isn't what I need. I'm not going back to Alan.
Coop: You mean, right now?
Beth: No. Alan and I are finished. I want to be with you.
Coop: What just happened? I mean besides this, and that over there.
Beth: It doesn't matter.
Coop: Yeah, Beth, it really does matter. I think we should talk about this.
Beth: Okay. (Clears throat) These last couple of days without Alan have been incredible. And I can't go back to living a lie. I just can’t. It's over.
Coop: Well, then, I think we should march right over and set the record straight with Alan. I can't wait to see his face--
Beth: No. Coop, listen to me. If we're going to do this, we have to be careful.
Coop: I told you, I'm not afraid of Alan.
Beth: Well, you should be. If not for yourself, for your father. Alan owns this place now, and he can shut down Company, just snapping his fingers. If he knows I'm leaving him for you, he'll want revenge.
Coop: No one man gets everything he wants, not even Alan.
Beth: I have to do this myself.
Coop: No, you don't have to do anything yourself.
Beth: He is waiting for an answer to his proposal. I'll tell him that I've given it a lot of thought...
Coop: But the answer is no.
Beth: I'll soften the blow. I'll tell him that I love him, but we just don't belong together anymore, which is true. I do care about him. I just need a different life. And... after I tell him, I'll move out.
Coop: You can stay here with me. Then we can go find a place.
Beth: No. I need my own place. If for no other reason, then to keep Alan from knowing. I think we'll just play it very low key for a while.
Beth: And then we'll just --
Coop: We can pretend that we just bumped into each other, and we started dating.
Coop: One problem: There are a lot of people that know about us already, Beth. Lillian knows, my dad knows, Lizzie knows.
Beth: They're not going to say anything. They know better.
Coop: Okay, sure.
Beth: Alan can never know. That's the key.
Coop: Okay. Okay. This can work.
Beth: Yes, I think it can.
Natalia: Hi. How did it go with Alan?
Natalia: Hi, Alan. This is a surprise. How are you? Alan?
Olivia: Come on, Alan, let's sit.
Alan: Where is Emma?
Natalia: Upstairs. She's doing her homework. She's going to be really excited to see you.
Alan: Frankly, I don't mind telling you I'm having a hard time understanding all of this. One moment I'm sitting here being interviewed by Emma about our family, and the next moment..
Olivia: The next moment what, Alan.
Alan: The story comes out and it's about you two.
Olivia: Wait a minute. There is no "you two." We live together and she helps me with Emma.
Alan: So you say.
Olivia: She does the marketing, I do the cooking, I get Emma up in the morning, and she puts her to bed. Two people sharing, something you no nothing about.
Alan: Some things I will never share.
Natalia: It's a good arrangement. It helps me pay the mortgage.
Olivia: It's a loving home. Even Emma sees the value in it--
Natalia: Especially after living in a hotel.
Olivia: I'll stack it up against your dysfunctional family any day.
Alan: I'm going up to see Emma.
Natalia: I'll get her for you. Or I can make some tea and we can visit together, Alan. What's wrong with him?
Olivia: I don't know, but it's scaring me.
Cyrus: You're firing me? Unbelievable.
Lizzie: You rejected me. It's totally unbelievable.
Cyrus: I didn't reject you.
Lizzie: Really? Because that's what it felt like. I'm feeling alone, okay? All I want to do is just connect with another human being...
Cyrus: I just didn't want you to do anything you'd feel sorry for in the morning.
Lizzie: I got it. Yes, I got it. Thank you.
Cyrus: Why are you firing me?
Lizzie: I was taking your clothes off and you practically threw me off the bed. I think you can figure it out.
Cyrus: You're being unreasonable. I think we can work this out.
Lizzie: Too late. You blew it. See ya.
(Rock music playing)
Grady: Oh, what's up with you?
Cyrus: Lizzie Spaulding is what's up with me.
Grady: She can drive you crazy. I should know. Hey, what happened?
Cyrus: She wanted me to sleep with her.
Grady: Go, Cyrus.
Cyrus: We're in bed, we started kissing, and then I pulled back. Told her we shouldn't go any further.
Grady: You're nuts, man.
Cyrus: I work for her.
Grady: So what. Maybe it's part of your job.
Cyrus: I can't get distracted. I've been working an angle since I started working for her.
Grady: What kind of angle?
Cyrus: Let's say if I play my cards up, there is a massive payday, enough to set us both up for life.
Cyrus: Yeah, you think I would leave you out?
Grady: You have before.
Cyrus: I haven't worked a con this big before.
Grady: Then why didn't you sleep with her?
Cyrus: She was just starting to trust me.
Grady: Then why didn't you sleep with her?
Cyrus: I decided to play the gentleman. Bad call, obviously. She fired me. And now it's all out the window.
Natalia: Did you have a nice visit with Emma?
Alan: She's a wonderful child.
Olivia: So are you satisfied she is not being corrupted by our decadent lifestyle?
Alan: I've known you two for quite a while.
Olivia: You've known us? Alan, I was married to you. Natalia is the mother of your grandson.
Alan: Will you let me finish. If we were strangers and I read that article, I would have no trouble thinking that you two--
Olivia: What, that we were a couple? That's what you would assume, that Natalia and I were involved. That we are lesbians. Say the word, Alan. It's not a bad word.
Alan: I'm not saying that I think you are...
Natalia: Because we're not.
Alan: The world can be very harsh. What people think can ruin your reputation.
Natalia: You're worried that Emma is going to suffer because of what people think?
Alan: People can be very cruel. They can surprise you, do things that are unexpected. Take a direction that could end in...
Alan: Yes, tragedy.
Olivia: Okay. Look, we have no control over what other people think.
Alan: I just think it would be best if you two stopped living together.
Olivia: Why? Why should we? We like this arrangement. It works for us. If there was something that you wanted, Alan, and somebody tried to step in and take it away from you, you would fight to get it back. And don't tell me that you wouldn’t.
Beth: I've got to go.
Coop: Wait. Wait. Look, are you sure you don't want me to come with you?
Beth: Yes, I'm positive.
Coop: You're positive. Do me a favor. Promise me when you go home you're going to talk to him right away.
Coop: No butts.
Beth: I'm going to talk to him. I'm not going to lose my nerve. I've thought about this from the beginning -- because it doesn't make any sense, but you make me happy and you make me feel alive. I'm not going to deny myself--
Coop: Why should you? Mm. Let me at least walk you to your car.
Beth: We've taken a lot of risks because Alan was out of town. But now that he is back, it is time to play it smart.
Coop: This is my dad's restaurant, Beth. It's not going to be a big deal if people see me walking you to your car, which is in a public parking lot.
Coop: What? Fine. Go. All right. I will work on my patience.
Beth: You should work very hard on your patience if you care about your father and his restaurant. I will call you later?
Coop: Yes. Beth, wait. Just before you go, come here. Mm. We can do this.
Beth: I think you're right.
Coop: We can do this. Wow. Wow.
Lizzie: Are you insane?
Beth: How long have you been standing there?
Lizzie: Long enough. Oh, by the way, I read Coop's book-- or enough of it to make me nauseous.
Beth: Lizzie, I'm sorry you're unhappy with my choice.
Lizzie: I get it. Coop's a great guy. I know that. I almost married him, remember?
Beth: Can we talk about this?
Lizzie: You don't need to explain anything to me. Obviously, you are going through some mid-life crisis.
Beth: This is not a mid-life crisis.
Lizzie: You are dating a strong, young writer who wants to protect you from the world. It does not take a brain surgeon to figure this out. It's about you and dad.
Bill: (Groans) Phillip?
Billy: Guess again.
Beth: That is just plain insulting. This is not about Phillip. My life hasn't been about Phillip in a long time. I have to go.
Lizzie: You never got over dad.
Beth: That's crazy.
Lizzie: How many men are there in the world? Millions, right? Millions. And you married his dad. And then his best friend. And now you are clearly with a younger version of him--
Beth: Lizzie, that's enough! Your grandfather's plane just came in, and it would be awfully nice if someone was there to greet him, don't you think.
Lizzie: Granddad loves you. What are you going to do when he hears about it? I read the book.
Beth: I don't know how you got that book. That book is not going to be published.
Lizzie: Mom, listen, I know it is hard for you to imagine, but I'm actually trying to help you. Put yourself in Granddad's place. What if he was dating Daisy?
Beth: I love your grandfather. I always will, but I don't want to be married to him anymore.
Lizzie: So you're just going to leave him? It will break his heart.
Beth: Yes, he will be hurt, he will. But I'm not going to humiliate him. I'm not going to parade this thing with Coop in front of his face. Give me a little credit for knowing what I'm doing.
Beth: Honey, it's going to be okay. Trust me.
Grady: I like your plan. Too bad you blew it.
Cyrus: There is always another plan, Grady.
Grady: You can get in with Lizzie again. She’s vulnerable, alone. I say you apologize to her, she'd go for it.
Cyrus: I could find her kidnapper. She would love me for that.
Grady: Great. Real funny.
Cyrus: I've still got your plan.
Grady: I say you go for Lizzie.
Cyrus: It's too late. I've got to find a new plan fast.
Olivia: Emma is happier than she's ever been. I'm sure she told you that.
Alan: I've said what I have to say, Olivia. You know how I feel.
Olivia: I kind of expected more of a fight.
Natalia: Yeah, he seems...
Olivia: A little weird.
Natalia: He's got something on his mind.
Olivia: Well, the at least it isn't us.
Coop: Definitely not.
Buzz: Buying a present? Not for me, I presume.
Coop: Beth likes dark chocolates.
Buzz: As much as you like playing with fire.
Coop: We're not going to have to worry about Alan anymore, Dad.
Buzz: Oh, I don't want to ask.
Coop: Beth is leaving Alan. She told me today. She said she doesn't want to go back to him. It's really happening, Dad. Beth and I are going to be together.
Alan: Beth! Beth, are you up there? Damn it, Beth, where are you? (Rock music playing)
Natalia: Is Emma okay?
Olivia: Yeah. I just wanted to make sure Alan didn't leave any permanent psychological scars.
Natalia: Oh, please. She's stronger than both of us.
Olivia: You got that right. Just seeing him makes me want to drink my way through the Beacon wine seller. Is that wrong?
Natalia: That's not good for you or your heart. You've got to take your pills. So this is probably all over, right?
Olivia: What would give you that idea?
Natalia: Well, it was basically two people-- not everyone had the same reaction. It was the teacher and Alan, and we took care of them.
Olivia: Actually, it was a third. Christina, my trainer.
Olivia: She just assumed because we are living together, that we are together.
Natalia: Okay, so there are three. There is no reason we should think it would get any bigger than that. So that's a relief, right?
Coop: So what do you think, Dad? It's brilliant, right? Beth is going to break up with Alan, and then...
Buzz: I heard you the first time.
Coop: Dad, wait, wait, wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on. I know you have been concerned, but, please, everything is going to work out.
Buzz: Oh, tell that to Alan.
Coop: Must I remind you of everything he has done. It's like karma, Dad.
Buzz: Please tell me, tell me you're not stealing his woman out of spite because that would be so stupid and dangerous.
Coop: Oh, how shallow do you think I am here? What Beth and I have is worth whatever it takes to get there. Come on, didn't you feel the same way about my mother?
Buzz: Beth is not your mother, thank God.
Coop: That was just a joke, a joke. Everything is going to work out. We have a plan, all right? The business is going to be fine.
Buzz: I'm more concerned about you!
Cyrus: I got your message. What's up?
Lizzie: I'm going to need to hire you back.
Cyrus: What changed your mind?
Lizzie: Right now my focus needs to be on my family, especially my mother.
Lizzie: Yes. She's involved with Henry Cooper Bradshaw, something that could blow up and end very, very badly. So I'm going to need you to follow him, possibly get him out of town for a little while, while I do some damage control. Can I count on you?
Bill: How did you find me?
Billy: Rick. So, um, tell me, what happened?
Bill: I don't know. I-- I finally found the place. I was here, and I thought I heard Phillip, and I ran to chase him, and I guess that's when I hit my head. He was here.
Billy: Yeah, was. Hey, he could be anywhere now.
Bill: That's right. That's right, he could be. Maybe-- maybe-- maybe Springfield. Yeah, he's gone a few weeks, a few months, and that's just enough time.
Billy: Bill, you're not making any sense.
Bill: Listen, listen, the kidnapping-- Phillip left here with a plan. He wanted to get Lizzie, but he didn't want her to know it was him.
Billy: Why would he do that?
Bill: I don't know. He wanted to scare her. Yeah, that's it. He wanted to scare her. It's leading up to something-- something big. I don't -- I don't know--
Billy: Listen. Hey, Bill, you're not well. Take a drink of water and sit down.
Bill: No, Dad, I can’t. I've got to find Lizzie.
Billy: Whoa, wait, wait.
Bill: I've got to find Lizzie. I've got to find Lizzie before Phillip gets to her.
Billy: Whoa, wait, wait, wait. Catch your breath, okay? Look at me. There you go. You're right here. Good. Good. Good. All right, let's go back inside. Let's go. That's good.
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Coop: Beth is going to go ahead and break up with Alan. We're going to give it a reasonable amount of time, and eventually we'll start dating again. Alan won't have a reason to go after any of us.
Alan: I was stabbed in the back, caught off-guard, betrayed.
Beth: Betrayed? I don't understand. By whom?
