Previously on "Guiding Light"...
Bill: I remember everything. I remember fighting with him when I went to rescue Lizzie.
Billy: Well, then you must know who it is.
Bill: No, but I do know that it wasn't me.
Edmund: Lara was my daughter, and now she's gone.
Shayne: My plans just changed.
Dinah: Because of Edmund?
Shayne: I've got to make sure my family's safe.
Dinah: If you piss him off, none of us are safe.
Matt: Hey. How are you doing?
Dinah: I don't have time to talk to you. Yes, I do. You are very out of line.
Dinah: I have tried to call or even just talk to my sister since the whole shoplifting fiasco, and you are treating me like a telemarketer.
Matt: We've got some serious issues going on. She's doing after school work with Coop, seeing a counselor.
Dinah: You know what? She needs family. That's what she needs. She's my sister. I can help. I have made mistakes, but I have learned from the mistakes. I can help Maureen.
Matt: Thanks for the offer. Your coffee's getting cold.
Dinah: I want to talk to my mom.
Matt: You do that. You do that, Dinah.
Dinah: You're going to be real sorry if you don't let me help you with her. I understand things that some other people don't get, okay?
Reva: Hi, hi!
Shayne: You okay?
Shayne: Here, just sit down. Sit down.
Reva: I'm fine. It's just been one of those mornings, you know? I broke a plate, and then I dropped coffee all over the floor, and I'm having a really bad hair day. (Laughs)
Shayne: All right, your hair looks great.
Reva: Thank you.
Shayne: Are you okay? What's wrong?
Reva: I'm fine. I don't know. Take your pick. The pregnancy, the chemo, it's a toss-up. It just... it catches up with me every so often.
Shayne: What you need, is you need to lay down here and rest.
Reva: I'll rest when I'm dead.
Reva: I don't have any imminent plans of that.
Reva: I'm fine. Hungry? There's tons of food in the fridge.
Reva: Come on. Just a snack. Snack.
Shayne: I don't need a snack.
Edmund: Something comforting about a graveyard. Peaceful. I don't even know where my daughter's buried.
Josh: I'm sorry.
Edmund: Are you?
Josh: Edmund, you have to understand, you coming back to town, being Lara’s father, it gave us a shock.
Edmund: Well, I never leave town under the best of circumstances.
Josh: I'm sorry for the loss of your daughter. I really am. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a child.
Edmund: Thank you.
Josh: But the bottom line is it's my job to protect my son. I'll do whatever it takes to keep him safe.
(Knock on door)
Dinah: Is this what the government pays you for?
Dinah: Well, I see that Shayne isn't here.
Dinah: Neither am I.
Jeffrey: Well, you were my next stop. Dinah, when Shayne found out that Edmund was Lara’s father, I saw you two sharing a look. Dinah, if you know something, now would be the time to share.
Dinah: What I know is that you were supposed to ship Eddie off to his little paradise island, but you caved. Why?
Jeffrey: Oh, don't worry, I've got my eye on Eddie boy.
Dinah: Well, I don't believe that for a second, because you're all wrapped up in Reva and that little baby.
Jeffrey: Well, that's exactly why I'm keeping tabs on Edmund.
Dinah: I can help.
Jeffrey: No, Dinah, you need to stay out of it.
Bill: (Sighs) Home sweet home.
Billy: You know, the next time you decide to go traipsing around in the woods, do it in the summertime, because I caught myself a cold.
Bill: You got yourself a deal.
Billy: You okay?
Bill: Never been better.
Billy: Well, it's about time, isn't it?
Bill: Oh, there's a little lady that loves me. Hey, how was your day with Wanda, huh? Is she okay?
Billy: You know what? You need to go get Lizzie, and then you need to get yourself a proper sized dog. (Laughter)
Cyrus: So tailing Coop Bradshaw presents no challenge whatsoever. He's a pretty boring guy.
Lizzie: Huh, not according to my mother.
Cyrus: How are you doing today?
Lizzie: As opposed to yesterday, when I wanted to...
Cyrus: You were feeling a little vulnerable yesterday. You needed someone, and I just happened to be there.
Lizzie: Except you weren't there. Yeah, no, you weren't there. You bailed.
Cyrus: Well, maybe next time.
Lizzie: Not likely.
Cyrus: My loss, then.
Lizzie: I really hope you got a good long look at me with my guard down. Because it won't happen again.
Billy: Hey, I'm going to go.
Bill: Okay, well, hey, thanks for everything.
Billy: Um... you okay?
Bill: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Never been better.
Billy: You've been through a lot, friend.
Bill: Yes, I have.
Bill: Well, just like you and everyone else. But I'm going to be fine. Don't worry about me.
Billy: Oh, worrying about you is my job.
Bill: Haven't made it easy, have I?
Billy: You think?
Bill: I don't know. Maybe it was the bump on the head or something, but I realized what I've been doing wrong. Everyone I love, everyone I care about, I've been pushing away. I've been doing it to you, Mom. At the same time I'm blaming you that you've been deserting me. So I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I've been doing the same thing to Lizzie, too.
Billy: Fix it while you still can. I'll see you.
Bill: I will give it my best shot.
Cyrus: Believe me, it wasn't easy to walk away.
Lizzie: Right. You were being a gentleman when all I wanted was for you not to be. But I'm grateful now.
Cyrus: Listen, I'm sorry if I upset you. I don't want to just work here. I want to be indispensable.
Lizzie: Don't worry. I'll live. In fact, you know, you shouldn't worry about my feelings at all.
Cyrus: I want to. I want to know everything that you're thinking, everything that you're feeling. The more connected we are, the more we can accomplish at work.
Lizzie: You want to be helpful?
Lizzie: Tail Coop, please. Get my mother out of this cougar phase.
Cyrus: Okay, that's not a problem. But I'm looking for something a little more challenging.
Lizzie: One step at a time, okay?
Cyrus: For now.
Lizzie: Can you please help me find this annual report? Because I have been looking...
Cyrus: Oh! I'm really sorry. Sorry.
Cyrus: Can I help?
Lizzie: Just stop. (Scoffs) I have to go change.
Dinah: Edmund has always had an agenda. So if he is claiming to mourn his daughter, I'm betting that it's a big cover for something else.
Jeffrey: Well, unfortunately, we're pretty sure that Edmund is Lara’s father.
Dinah: Shayne's bad luck gets worse.
Jeffrey: If he stays in town we'll keep an eye on him.
Dinah: How do you keep an eye on a guy who is aiming to stab you in the back?
Jeffrey: Well, you know what, Dinah? You're right. All I really care about is that Reva is happy, and Reva’s happy when Shayne’s happy. And if that means Eddie boy stays in town for a little while, so be it, for now.
Reva: Look at you.
Reva: You're the one with the bum leg, and here you're waiting on me.
Shayne: Hot, hot, hot. Well, the minute you're cancer-free and not pregnant it's all on you again. Until then, you're going to have to deal with me.
Reva: I guess we both have a hard time accepting help. But the way I'm feeling right now, I'm not even going to fight you.
Shayne: I'm sorry, Mom. Edmund's back in town because of me, and I'm sorry.
Reva: Life is full of crazy coincidences. I'll deal.
Shayne: I know you will.
Shayne: But, um, you know, he'd still be in another time zone if he didn't want to know more about Lara. Maybe I should go talk to him.
Reva: Would that help you deal with your grief?
Shayne: Maybe. The thing is, I don't know. I think I need to go talk to him.
Reva: Okay. You do what you feel you need to do to make this right for you. If that means talking to Edmund, then by all means talk to him. Because whether we want to acknowledge it, he is-- and was-- a part of Lara’s life. Until he crawls back under that rock he came out of, he's a part of your life, too.
Edmund: You keep asking me about my plans.
Josh: Yes, and I'm going to keep on asking until you give me an answer.
Edmund: How can one possibly make plans when they're dealing with the death of a child? It's a process.
Josh: Edmund, I know something about loss.
Edmund: So I heard right. Cassie's moved to Hawaii.
Josh: Yes, she's very happy there.
Edmund: And Reva’s married Jeffrey. Can't say I saw that one coming.
Josh: Things change. Life goes on.
Edmund: But no one accepts that Lara changed me, that she's the reason I recovered. Well, now she's gone, and all I have are questions. Which is why talking to Shayne is so important to me.
Josh: Your last link to your daughter.
Edmund: Which is why I can't exactly walk away.
Josh: Okay. Find out about your daughter. But if you hurt my son in any way, you'll be sorry you ever set foot back in this town.
An open book
Bill: So I got a tip. I ended up climbing this mountain looking for Lizzie’s father.
Daisy: Phillip, wow.
Bill: Yeah. I thought maybe he could help keep Alan away from Lizzie. Now I'm running through the woods, and I hit my head. Yes!
Bill: (Laughs) Yes, again. But it doesn't matter, because there's no coma this time, it's just a concussion.
Daisy: That's good, I guess.
Bill: But here's the good news, and this is why I'm so happy, because all my memories? They came flooding back.
Daisy: That is so romantic!
Bill: (Laughs) Romantic? Hitting my head?
Daisy: Well, yeah, yeah! Are you kidding? Because now you remember everything. You know you didn't do it.
Bill: I'm sure of it.
Daisy: I am so happy for you guys!
Bill: Oh, thank you! Thank you very much. But there's still a long road ahead of us. Look, Lizzie and I, we've played a lot of games, okay? There's always this stupid competition between us. And I know it's my fault, and I didn't always put her first. So I don't know, maybe I don't deserve to be with her. I don't know.
Daisy: I think that you're over thinking this. What did Lizzie say when you told her?
Bill: I haven't told her.
Daisy: What? What the heck are you doing sitting here talking to me?
Bill: I don't know. You're such a good listener, I just needed to say it out loud before I...
Daisy: No! Get out of here! Lizzie needs to hear this! Lizzie wants to hear this!
Bill: Oh, I don't know. You think?
Daisy: I know.
Bill: You're right. So what am I doing sitting here telling you this?
Daisy: I don't know. You guys...
Bill: I know.
Daisy: ...Your passion, your devotion; you're my heroes.
Bill: (Laughs) Aw, Daisy, thank you.
Daisy: You're welcome. Go... go tell her. Good luck!
Bill: I will. Get the coffee?
Reva: Here. All righty?
Shayne: Thank you.
Reva: Okay. Very good. Hi! Dinah, hello. I've been seeing an awful lot of you these days.
Dinah: Nice to see you, too.
Jeffrey: You going somewhere?
Shayne: Yes. I'm going to go talk to Edmund.
Dinah: About Lara? I think that's a big mistake.
Jeffrey: What made you change your mind?
Shayne: The more I've thought about it, I just... I think it's something I need to do.
Dinah: Shayne, write him a letter, send him something, but I don't think you should go see him at all.
Reva: (Clears throat)
Dinah: I'm trying to keep your son safe, that's all.
Reva: He's a grown man.
Shayne: Okay, okay, everyone, listen. I go see Edmund, we talk, then it's over. He leaves town, everyone's happy, right? Right?
Dinah: It's just not that simple.
Reva: I really wish Dinah would find another playmate, leave my son alone.
Dinah: Suddenly now you're social?
Shayne: Okay, she's trying to hide it, but you know my mom is stressed that Edmund’s back in town. So I'm going to go ask him to leave.
Dinah: This not a land mine that you can just diffuse. Edmund has made it his career to destroy people. And once he finds out that you're behind Lara’s death...
Shayne: What do you think I'm going to do? Give me a little bit of credit, okay? I'm not just going to volunteer that information.
Dinah: I'm giving you credit. But he's going to ask how Lara died. He's going to keep asking until you cave and admit that you were responsible. Once he knows that, he's going to try to hurt you.
Cyrus: Hey, you okay?
Lizzie: Yeah. Yeah, just, um... let me get changed and we'll get back to work.
Cyrus: Okay, I'll meet you in the study.
Bill: What are you doing here? Where's Lizzie?
Cyrus: She's busy. Maybe you should call first next time.
Bill: Call? Who, you?
Lizzie: Can you give us a minute?
Bill: Um... (clears throat) You and Cyrus? Really? What's up with that?
Lizzie: I like him, and he likes me. It's simple, for a change.
Bill: I see.
Lizzie: I'm sorry. Why are you here? We already said our good-byes, Bill.
Bill: I came back here because I needed to tell you something. I went out of town to look for...
Lizzie: What? Look for what?
Bill: So you and Cyrus, huh? I mean, this guy is a professional con. He's a player; he's a cad. If you don't want to listen to me you should listen to your Aunt Alex.
Lizzie: You know, I think that he deserves a second chance. How many did I give you? 50?
Bill: Oh, that's Roxy's.
Lizzie: So what?
Bill: Well, you're still you, right? You don’t...
Lizzie: I was going to have it messengered over to you. Take it.
Bill: You don't want it?
Lizzie: No, I don't want it. And I don't want her, and I don't want you. So look, Cyrus and I are going out, so I just need to finish getting ready. So if there's nothing else...
Close my eyes, see your
Bill: No. No, there's not. I just wanted to make sure you were okay.
Lizzie: I am.
Bill: I get it.
...Makes me feel alive
open all these golden moments
in your eyes I live alone
those who wanted you...
Cyrus: I'm looking for my brother.
Daisy: Hmm. This isn't exactly his favorite hangout.
Cyrus: I know, but I figured you might be able to point me in the right direction.
Daisy: Um, have you tried the mayor's office?
Cyrus: Right. Yeah, I still have a hard time wrapping my head around that.
Daisy: Well, is there a message I can pass along?
Cyrus: No, it's just some extra work I thought he might be interested in.
Daisy: Oh. Something I can do? I could always use some extra cash.
Cyrus: I don't think so. It has to do with my work for Lizzie at Spaulding.
Daisy: Oh. Yeah, what exactly do you do for her?
Cyrus: Uh, it's hard to describe. But we're having fun.
Daisy: You and Lizzie?
Daisy: You need to stop. You need to stop messing with people's lives. First it was Marina, then Harley, then Cassie. You need to leave Bill and Lizzie alone!
Shayne: I'll be fine.
Dinah: Shayne, look, you can't handle Edmund.
Shayne: Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Dinah: Listen, I get you. I get you. You... you hide your feelings behind this strong, silent act, and you're like me. You're like me. We have great intentions, but we have big mouths. We speak before we think.
Shayne: I can handle Edmund.
Dinah: He's going to mention Lara too many times, you're going to lash out, and then boom! Armageddon.
Shayne: Goodbye, Dinah.
Dinah: Shayne? Shayne!
Reva: What's wrong?
Dinah: Um, this is not good. Do you have a car? I need... I think I might need it. I need to stop Shayne from being Edmund’s next target.
Reva: You really think it could be trouble?
Dinah: Yes! It's Edmund, for God's sakes! What is the problem?
Reva: Okay, I have my car. I know where they're meeting. Come on.
Matt: How you doing, sport?
Matt: You buying?
Bill: (Laughs) Sure.
Matt: I was supposed to meet Josh here. He's running late. Now he wants me to meet him at Company. I just got back from Company. Saw your sister. Thank you. Sure.
Bill: That's great. Good.
Matt: You okay?
Bill: Uh, yeah, yeah. I've just got a lot going on right now.
Matt: Anything you want to talk about?
Bill: Oh, hey.
Daisy: Hi, Matt.
Matt: Hi, Daisy. How you doing?
Daisy: I'm okay. Oh, hey, Coop told me about Maureen, and I just wanted to say that if you need any help, if you want me to talk to her, I've pretty much been in her shoes. I could tell her what juvie's actually like. Scare her straight a little bit, maybe.
Matt: I'll keep that in mind. Thank you, Daisy. Well, I, uh... better meet Josh. I'll leave you two...
Matt: ...And I'll talk to you later. Thanks for the coffee.
Bill: Yeah. Take care, Matt.
Matt: Daisy, good seeing you.
Daisy: You, too. Okay, so what happened?
Bill: Uh-uh. (Clears throat)
Daisy: What, she didn't believe you?
Bill: Um... (sighs) I didn't tell her. Cyrus was there, and they were upstairs, and...
Daisy: But you climbed a mountain for her.
Bill: Yeah. I mean, really, if I told her that I had my memory back, she'd never believe me. She'd just think I'm just saying it to keep them two apart, that's all.
Daisy: Not necessarily.
Bill: (Sighs) I don't know, Daisy. You know, I don't have any proof that I got my memory back. I just... I just... I just do.
Daisy: But you could... you could tell her that you want to change; that you want to be the kind of person who she really deserves.
Bill: Yeah, but you know what? I don't think I'm that person. I don't know. I don't know. Not yet, anyway. I've got a lot of work to do. So...
Bill: I know what I have to do.
(Knock on door)
Dinah: Shayne? Shayne, open up. (Knock on door)
Shayne: So... I'm here. Let's talk, and I'll drive you to the airport.
Edmund: Wow, I see you have your father's manners. Those are from Lara. Tell me what you know about her.
Shayne: Tell me when you're leaving town.
Edmund: Did she like her work? Did she have friends?
Shayne: Yes, and yes.
Edmund: What else?
Shayne: You know my mother's fighting cancer right now? Did you know that? She shouldn't have to fight you, too.
Edmund: I'll leave after we talk.
Shayne: Lara was wonderful. And now she's dead.
Edmund: Lara was full of hope. She could have walked away when she found out what kind of man I was. And she didn't, because she had hope for me, too. Now, do you think she'd want you to walk away from me? Or do you think she'd want you to have some compassion for a man who just lost his only child?
Dinah: Okay, I couldn't have beat him here. They're not here.
Reva: No, they're not.
Dinah: You lied?
Reva: (Laughs) Well, as if you've never bent the truth a little? (Laughs)
Dinah: So we drove up here for nothing? What's wrong with you?
Reva: I know what it's like to bottle up my feelings and pretend like they're just going to go away. They don’t.
Dinah: Okay, if this is going to be another Josh and Reva history lesson, you can spare me.
Reva: Shayne needs to talk about Lara. He won't talk to me about her, he won't talk to Josh about her. So if Edmund can get him to open up, then I'm all for that, and you will be, too. So sit down! Read about striped bass, or learn to whittle... but you're not going after Shayne.
Josh: Thanks for coming in. I'm sorry about...
Josh: What is that? Are we expecting a storm or something?
Billy: Um, well, I... I just got them for Bill. Hey, Matt, how are you doing?
Matt: Good, Billy how are you doing?
Billy: Good, good. How's that little girl of yours?
Matt: She's a handful.
Billy: Oh, yeah? Spitfire like her mom, huh?
Matt: One way to look at it.
Billy: Hey, parenting's tough.
Josh: Uh, I thought that Bill was staying at the Towers, land of 24-hour room service.
Billy: Yeah, well, you know, we took a little road trip, and we had kind of a breakthrough. So I just kind of wanted him to have his favorite things.
Josh: What happened?
Billy: We talked, and he didn't go ballistic, he didn't push me away. ( Laughs) It was real good.
Josh: Sounds like a breakthrough.
Billy: Yeah. And he got his memory back. And he didn't kidnap Lizzie. So, I got my boy back.
Josh: That's great, Billy.
Josh: I'm happy for you. Yeah, I remember when, you know, Shayne and I, we used to be so close. I knew everything about his life, what was happening, his hopes, his dreams.
Billy: And now?
Josh: Now I just miss him.
Bill: It just doesn't make sense, Daisy. You know, it doesn't make sense at all to go to someone and tell them that you're going to change. I mean, it doesn't mean anything if you can't back it up.
Daisy: I don't know that that's true.
Bill: Yeah, but if I tell him that I have my memory back, it doesn't mean anything if I can't prove it.
Daisy: So you don't want to just say that you're different? You want her to see it.
Bill: Exactly. I've got to walk the talk. I went up a mountain to find someone who could help Lizzie, but I came down that mountain knowing that it was me.
Cyrus: So how'd it go with Bill?
Lizzie: (Sighs) I'm sorry that I had to use you to get rid of him. I just needed to do something drastic.
Cyrus: Hey, I don't mind lying for a good cause.
Lizzie: Is that you being indispensable?
Cyrus: Hey, you're catching on.
Lizzie: Do you think that I will ever be able to see Bill and not feel this sadness?
Cyrus: If you need to talk, just... call me. Anytime.
Lizzie: Thank you. It's nice to have a friend.
Cyrus: Were you looking for something?
Lizzie: It was nothing. It's just this... just this picture thing. But it's nothing, it's nothing. (Laughter)
Josh: I talked to Edmund. He's not going anywhere soon.
Jeffrey: Of course not. Not until he's good and ready. Reva's not with you?
Josh: No, why?
Jeffrey: Well, she usually rests at this time every day. I don't know where she is. She's not answering her phone.
Josh: Doctor's appointment?
Jeffrey: No, it's not the doctor. I called the doctor. I have no idea where she is.
Josh: Well, that's never good.
Dinah: You're pregnant and you are hormonal, but this is crazy, even for you.
Reva: I saw you fighting with Shayne.
Dinah: You were spying on us?
Reva: You claim to be his friend, and yet you don't know when to leave well enough alone.
Dinah: Okay, Shayne is not ready to tangle with Edmund. He is still one raw nerve.
Reva: You love the drama, don't you? You just hate it when you're not smack dab in the middle of the crisis.
Dinah: Okay, believe it or not, Shayne is the first friend I have made in a long time, and I'm going to make sure that I keep him healthy.
Reva: Where are you going?
Dinah: To find your son. Keep him from walking into a buzz saw.
Reva: You're not going anywhere. I'm having car trouble.
Reva: And you can't get any phone service up here.
Dinah: So we're trapped? You're kidnapping me?
Reva: No. Oh, no, no, no! I've got a car service coming. I called them. They'll be here in about an hour, which will give Shayne enough time to talk to Edmund.
Dinah: By then, it would be too late.
Reva: Stop it. Shayne is a grown man.
Dinah: And Edmund is Edmund.
Edmund: I know there's been bad blood between me and your family. But now there's Lara. We have stories to share. We can help each other.
Edmund: There's something you need to see. A letter from her. This is the one she wrote telling me how much she loved you. These could very well be the last words you ever hear from her. Are you telling me you can really turn away?
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Edmund: You can't know what it's like to lose a child, just as I can never know your loss.
Shayne: Wait. Just... wait a minute.
Dinah: Your guilt is keeping you from seeing that anyone else could be good for him!
Reva: It wasn't fate that you found him. It was our bad luck. Dinah? Dinah!
