Previously on "Guiding Light"...

Doris: I have a lot of gay friends. I just... I want and need to be on that commission. This essay was "My Two Mommies." Fellow parents, we have a serious problem in this town.

Coop: I said no. No book!

Blake: I tried. Mr. Bradshaw will be giving you a reading.

Beth: Alan, what are you doing?

Alan: I know everything.

Doris: Before anyone asks, I will not be naming names.

Olivia: I don't believe this.

Natalia: I can't watch this anymore.

Olivia: No, donít. I want to see it.

Doris: I'm not interested in

outing these two women.

Again, I am not judging their


Olivia: Where the hell does she get off? She's making it sound like Emmaís... needs to be protected from me.

Natalia: I donít... I donít... it was just a school paper.

Olivia: Who tipped her off.

Natalia: It was... it was about family, and she's turning it...

Olivia: Wait, wait... hey, where are you going?

Natalia: I'm going, uh... Frank. I have a date with Frank, so... I'll see you later.

Remy: Look at that smile.

Christina: I just did a good thing. I turned down that married person's scholarship.

Remy: Why? Why did... why?

Christina: Because I never felt good about it. Yes, we're married, but not really. That spot should go to someone who's qualified, and now that I've got my spot at Johns Hopkins-- the one that you helped me get-- we don't have to pretend we're married anymore.

Remy: Um... Christina, uh...

Christina: I know. Look, I'm trying to say "thank you," okay? And that doesn't come easily to me. So just let me say it.

Remy: Okay, but you donít...

Christina: And I know that you got me that spot. I'm not saying that I'm not worthy, but you opened that door for me, so thank you.

Remy: You're welcome. And I'm sorry.

Christina: Johns Hopkins doesn't want me?

Remy: No, no, no, no. They want you, it's just there's no scholarship. You have to pay the full tuition, and...

Christina: (Sighs) A year?

Remy: A semester.

Christina: A small country couldn't afford that.

Remy: Yeah. Yeah, so you have to call this guy back and tell him your marriage is back on track. You have to tell him you deserve the grant, okay?

Christina: But I donít. And I just... I've got to get out of here.

Remy: (Sighs) Ok

Buzz: (Chuckles) What was that last bit? (Laughing)

Coop: Oh, man. I can't believe it. I mean, can you believe it? People are waiting in line this long just to say hello and get an autograph.

Buzz: Be proud of it. I am.

Coop: Sounds like a first.

Buzz: No, me? No, no. I've always been proud of you. I've always known how talented you were.

Coop: Uh-huh.

Buzz: Uh-huh.

Coop: But?

Buzz: What but?

Coop: There's a "but" in there.

Buzz: Well, after Frank left, I started talking to people, and, you know, asked them why they came, what they thought of the book. And, you know, they're really touched by it. Your book... I guess people need to feel love and hope and all that stuff, and believe in it. And, you know, it just... it matters to them.

Coop: Well, it matters to me. Dad, this is the first book that I feel like I've... I've really gotten into, and I just... I loved. I don't want to just... I don't want to tell a story. I mean, I just... I want to do it justice.

Buzz: You're done more than that.

Coop: Uh-huh. So, um, do you still think I'm crazy? I mean, wasting time with Beth? Is that what you said?

Buzz: Well, you know, I get... I get why you're into her now, but I'm still worried about you. I mean, that crazy book cover! I mean, could it look less like Beth? What did you do, give them a picture?

Coop: No, I didnít... no, Blake just said they took the description that I put in the book, and, I mean, I don't even think she knows about it.

Buzz: Well, I don't care what Blake thinks, I just, but Alan...

Coop: I would have thought she would have been back by now. She said she was just going to go over there and... and then take care of things. This is... this is... this is a special day for me, all right? I just want to share it with her.

Buzz: (Mumbling)

Beth: Let go of me, Alan.

Alan: Why, Beth? So you can run back to young Mr. Bradshaw-- your daughter's ex-boyfriend-- your new lover?

Beth: Coop? This is about Coop? What, you think that book is about me because there's a blonde on the cover?

Alan: No, no, not because of the cover. Because I saw you and him making love at Company. That's what I wanted to talk with you about. That's why we went to Towers. So I could tell you that I forgive your little indiscretion. God knows I've made mistakes; I'm not perfect. We could put this behind us and move on. Get married. And I could finally have the marriage to you that I have always wanted. But when we arrive at Towers, I hear him reading passages from; this book, and it dawns on me that this wasn't just a little fling or chance to try to renew your youth. No. You actually believe this is real, and you took my love and publicly humiliated me. The laughing stops now.

Beth: What do you want from me, Alan?

Alan: You will marry me, of course.

Beth: Marry?

Alan: Yes. It's the obvious solution.

Beth: Solution? Alan, we're talking about our lives here. Don't you want more than a solution? Look, we had something once, but let's be honest, that ended a while ago. We both know that.

Alan: Are you trying to tell me that you're in love with Henry?

Beth: I don't know what I have with Coop yet, but I know I want the chance to find out. Alan, I'm hurting you. And I'm sorry. That's not my intent. We have so much history, and we will always be connected by family. Please, please, can we part as friends?

Alan: Friends? Beth, you cheated on me with your daughter's ex-boyfriend, and you kept me in the dark while half the town knew about it.

Beth: No, no, that's not what happened.

Alan: And now, it's in this book-- the entire affair. Now, that doesn't sound like friendship to me. That sounds like marriage.

Beth: Alan, listen to yourself. You want to marry me just so you can save face!

Alan: No, Beth, no. I want to marry you because you and I are meant to be together. You may not know that now, but some day you will, and some day you will realize that this affair with Coop is nothing but a passing whim.

Beth: No, no. I won't marry you, no.

Alan: Really? Well, then, you don't care about him as much as you say you do.

Beth: No, what... didn't you learn anything from Tammyís death?

Alan: Yes, I did learn. I learned to be careful who I hire. Now you and I are going to get married, and no one will question it. Peyton will grow up in a home with her mommy and her daddy. And her mommy is going to have plenty of time to raise her, because you can forget about this silly notion of becoming a lawyer.

Beth: Alan, please.

Alan: Just like you've always said, Beth: Family first. You have an hour to decide.

Coop: No word from Beth yet. Maybe I should go look for her.

Buzz: I don't think you're finished with your fans yet.

Coop: I'm sorry.

Charlotte: Hi.

Coop: I'm Coop. Would you like me to sign a book for you?

Charlotte: Thank you, but this not why I'm here. Charlotte Davidson, with Stanford University.

Coop: Say no more; I know exactly who you are.

Buzz: I donít.

Coop: I'm sorry, this is my dad, Buzz Cooper.

Charlotte: Hi.

Coop: This is Charlotte Davidson. She's from Stanford University, from their creative writing department. It's legendary.

Charlotte: We do our best. That's why I'm here. We'd like you to be our next writer-in-residence.

Buzz: Fantastic! Wow! I... I'm sorry, I'm not just his dad. I'm sort of his manager, whatever you want to call it.

Coop: You... you know what? Could you excuse us for just one second?

Charlotte: Sure.

Coop: Dad, could we just...

Buzz: Oh, come on!

Coop: Pop...

Buzz: Come on! Give me good reason you can pass up an opportunity like this.

Coop: Stanford University-- it's thousands of miles away!

Buzz: Well, son, we'll miss you like crazy, but it's a great chance-- and you'll be thousands of miles away from Alan Spaulding.

Coop: I know that. But I'm also going to be thousands of miles away from Beth.

Buzz: Oh, come on! You gave up your fellowship to Oxford because of... I don't even remember who.

Coop: Ava.

Buzz: And that didn't work out.

Coop: It was Ava.

Buzz: And Ashlee didn't work out...

Coop: Yeah.

Buzz: Maybe Beth won't work out. I mean, come on, are you really willing to give up another chance like this? Come on.

Coop: Ms. Davidson, first off, I have to tell you that I am flattered by this offer-- I mean, honored, even. But... you're going to have to come up with something else if I'm going to really consider this offer of yours.

(Knock on the door)

Marina: Just a minute. Hey!

Remy: Hey! Going somewhere?

Marina: Yes, actually. Mallet and I have a couple days off work, so we are going to the mountains.

Remy: Ooh, skiing.

Marina: No, sex. Lots and lots of sex.

Remy: (Laughs) Okay, too much information.

Marina: Sorry. I guess we've just had our minds wrapped around these adoption agencies trying to get a kid.

Remy: Yeah.

Marina: We kind of forgot that we were newlyweds.

Remy: Got it. Lot of sex.

Marina: Yeah.

Remy: Cool.

Marina: I don't know. I figure we can't make the adoption agencies make up their minds any faster, so.

Remy: I hear you.

Marina: (Sighs)

Remy: So, do you need a house sitter?

Marina: Um, no, thank you. I don't even think we have houseplants, so... ah, you and Christina want to play house.

Remy: No, no, no, no, no. It's not for us. I have to convince a financial aid guy that this is our home, and he's actually on his way right now.

Marina: Right. I bet Christina doesn't know anything about it, either, huh?

Remy: Yeah, yeah, eventually she'll go along with it.

Marina: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Remy: Yes.

Marina: All right. Good luck.

Remy: Thank you.

Christina: Hi.

Marina: Hi, Christina. I love your new house. It's so you. Oh, sorry.

Christina: Our new house? What are you doing?

Remy: Carrying you over the threshold, madam.

Doris: Excuse me, do you have an appointment?

Olivia: You know, I would ask you who put you up to this, but it has Alanís name written all over it. So what did he promise you?

Doris: Hey, Alan had nothing to do with this, and I am not his puppet.

Olivia: Really? Then why are you doing it?

Doris: Because I am the mayor and a parent, and I'm concerned for our children.

Olivia: Oh, so, with unemployment and the sinking economy, this is what concerns you? And elementary school project?

Doris: Well, it certainly got your attention, didn't it?

Olivia: It's my daughter's project, and you're blabbing it all over town.

Doris: I did not mention any names.

Olivia: No, you'll just let people speculate and gossip, and make them think that Natalia and I are something more than just...

Doris: As I said in my address, your private life is your affair, okay? It's not personal. I know plenty of nice lesbian couples.

Olivia: We are not lesbians and we're not a couple.

Doris: Well, then maybe you should explain that to your daughter.

Frank: Are you sure it's not too cold to go out and have a picnic? You know, I could get us right into Towers, no problem whatsoever.

Natalia: No, I love a picnic. Picnic is good; it's good to go to the picnic. It's more private, and I don't have to...

Frank: Okay.

Natalia: ...Worry about people looking at me and wondering...

Frank: What's that?

Natalia: Did you... did you happen to catch the mayor's press conference today?

Frank: Oh, my God. Doris Wolfe. What she says goes in one ear and out the other, so, please. (Cell phone rings)

Natalia: Emma's school. Hello? Yes. Yes. No, no, thank you for calling. Yes, thank you.

Frank: What's going on?

Natalia: Oh... Emma. Emma's missing. She was on the playground with some friends, and now she's just gone.

Frank: What? Okay, just take it easy. Listen, all right? I found her once, I'll find her again.

Natalia: Okay, letís...

Christina: Put me down! Ooh! Ooh!

Remy: (Laughs) Want to hear about the plan?

Christina: I don't even know what your plan is.

Remy: I talked to Mr. Pearson, the financial aid rep.

Christina: Why, I already told him that I changed my mind about the grant.

Remy: Then your husband stepped in, told him you needed the grant and told him you had some... some old-school way about accepting things. That you have more pride than common sense.

Christina: Remy, that's ridiculous. It's not going to work.

Remy: He liked it.

Christina: He did?

Remy: Mm-hmm. Said it was admirable. That's why he's on his way to "our" house, to talk to us about getting the grant. (Laughter) Uh-huh!

Christina: Can I... can I just be happy? Do I have to tell you that you were right?

Remy: Yeah, I'll let it slide just this once.

Christina: Look, wait. He's on his way to our house? We don't have a house. ( Keys jingling) Here? Another lie?

Remy: Well, I didn't think it would impress him, him visiting us in separate places, but, hey, if you don't care about the grant, then you can tell him whatever you want. (Knock on the door) Would you like me to get that, darling?

Christina: No, I have to do this myself. Mr. Pearson, welcome to our home.

Olivia: My daughter was just doing what she was asked to do. She was writing about her family.

Doris: Right. "My Two Mommies."

Olivia: Come on! She didn't know what that meant. Natalia and I are friends, and because you want something, you're turning it into something salacious.

Doris: Two adult women living together-- I think I understand what that means.

Olivia: We live together to help each other out.

Doris: And I'm sure you do.

Olivia: I almost died this year. Did you know that? Did Alan tell you that?

Doris: I...

Olivia: My heart was failing, and Natalia, she was a maid at my hotel. The only thing I knew about her was her husband.

Doris: Right. Gus Aitoro.

Olivia: Mm-hmm. And because I didn't want to die alone-- me being me, I... I made a play for him.

Doris: Well, this story gets better and better.

Olivia: It's not a story, it's my life. And you know that Gus died in a motorcycle accident. And Natalia, she... she agreed to give me his heart. I mean, after everything I did-- after trying to steal her husband-- she agreed to do that for me. Would you have done that? I couldn't have done that. But see, that's just who she is. She's just innately good. She's decent, she's kind, she's warm, she's beautiful and she's a lot stronger than people give her credit for. She has worked her whole life-- and not for herself, but for other people. So even after I got out of the hospital-- and I didn't want to live-- she fought for me. She fought for me to live. And not just for me, but for my daughters, because she wanted them to have their mother there. And now we have a home, and it's different. but it's safe and it's warm and it's decent-- and that's because of her. That's because of who she is. That's because of what she makes it. ( Sighs) What are you looking at?

Doris: I wish a man would talk about me the way you just talked about her.

Olivia: I told you, we're friends. And if you do anything to hurt her or my daughter...

Doris: Relax, relax. This is not personal, okay? It's just politics. At least for me. Now, if you will excuse me, I am very busy.

Natalia: Thank God!

Frank: Hey, Emma.

Emma: Hey.

Natalia: Emma, you left the playground. You know you're not supposed to do that.

Emma: I don't want to talk about it.

Natalia: Hey, Frank? Will you call Olivia, just let her know that we've got Emma?

Frank: Yeah, yeah, yeah, of course. You ladies stay put, and we'll have that picnic another time.

Natalia: Okay. All right, sweetie, if you don't want to talk about it, you don't have to talk about it. But you know, if... if you do want to tell me, you can tell me anything. Right? You know? If you have a problem or anything.

Emma: It's Derek.

Natalia: Derek? From your class? I thought you guys were good friends.

Emma: His mom said that we can't play together. I don't know why.

Buzz: Yeah, we talk about everything, I know.

Alan: I hear it's going to be quite a page-turner.

Coop: Hey, gorgeous.

Beth: Hey.

Coop: How are you? What are you doing out here? It's freezing. Tell you what, let me take you back to my place, and I'll warm you up, just the way you like it.

Beth: I... I canít. I canít.

Coop: Alan. That's right. Did you tell him? How'd he take it?

Beth: Not well. Not well.

Coop: Well, yeah. At least you did it. The worst is behind you now. I mean, yeah, he may have taken it pretty rotten, but at least now we can... we can lay low for a little while and let things die down, and then we can finally be together and come out in public.

Beth: Um, Coop, we... we have to talk.

Coop: Yes, we do. Beth, I have some amazing news. I was just offered the writer-in-residence opportunity at Stanford University.

Beth: Stanford?

Coop: Yeah.

Beth: Because of your new book?

Coop: The book. (Laughs)

Beth: That's wonderful.

Coop: I know, isn't it great? It's amazing, and I know, Stanford-- it's such a long ways away, but... I told them I was only going to consider the opportunity if they would find a spot for you in their law program.

Beth: What?

Coop: They said yes. Can you believe it? This is it! This... it's happening. This is a go for me, it is a go for you, it is a go for us. Everything we want-- all we have to do is reach for it. All you need to do is just say yes.

Remy: Here you go. Hon, why don't you see if Mr. Pearson wants something to drink?

Christina: Sure.

Remy: Some soda, juice?

Christina: Do we have that?

Remy: Um... we work a lot of hours. We hardly get to the store.

Mr. Pearson: These photos don't really look like your family.

Remy: Well, that's because...

Christina: This isn't our house.

Remy: (Laughs) What my wife means is that we don't own this house. We're subletting from our friends, Mallet and Marina. We go way back.

Christina: That's right. They were at our wedding.

Remy: We are very proud that Christina got into Johns Hopkins, and I'm also very, very proud, which is why we need to talk to you, because we really need that grant.

Mr. Pearson: Well, I'll be frank. We have a lot of couples that need assistance, but with Mrs. Boudreau's wavering on her commitment to...

Remy: No, there must be some misunderstanding...

Christina: No one can question my commitment to becoming a doctor. The only thing that I've been reluctant about is this grant-- not medicine. I've wanted to help people since I was a little girl, and I am well aware of the importance of the medical community. And not just doctors. My husband? He's dedicated to his work as an EMT.

Remy: Wife's a little biased.

Christina: No! No, I'm not. I would have never done as well as I did on the MCATs if it weren't for him, and I wouldn't have gotten into Johns Hopkins medical school. I don't know about the other couples on your list. I don't know how solid they are, and I don't know how dedicated they are. But I do know about us. You don't know what it's taken for us to get to this point. So if there's someone else more qualified, and you want to give them the money, that's fine. We'll just figure something else out. Like we always do.

Natalia: You shouldn't be mad at your friend, Derek, or even his mom.

Emma: Why don't they like me anymore?

Natalia: Sometimes grownups just start to care way too much about what other people think, and they just... they forget what really matters.

Olivia: Hey.

Emma: Are you mad at me?

Olivia: No. Not mad. Frank told me what happened with Derek and his mom. Natalia's right. Sometimes you learn the hard way who your real friends are.

Natalia: All right, should we get her back to school?

Olivia: No, we should play hooky. Who wants to play hooky?

Natalia: Yes!

Olivia: Let's go, come on.

Natalia: Oh, good.

Buzz: You know, since you're here, why don't we talk about some improvements? I mean, we're in business together, and I was thinking, um... maybe a wood burning stove would be a good idea, or... now, don't laugh. How about franchising? I mean, think about a Company in every town.

Alan: Franchising? Buzz, I had no idea you were so ambitious. Maybe that's where young Coop gets his ambition from.

Buzz: He's young. We were young once; now we're old. Don't take it out on my son.

Alan: That would depend on you, Buzz.

Coop: You know, this could be a sequel to my book. (Laughs) Us, California. You ever been to Stanford?

Beth: No.

Coop: No? Oh, Beth, it is beautiful. They've got these quaint, Spanish style cottages, red tiled roofs. You'd be in one of the most prestigious law schools in the country, and of course, I'd be a teacher out there. We could take James and Peyton, put them in a great school system out there. It's right by the bay, so we could go do the cultural things. Oh, it's like a brand new world for us. It'll be beautiful, it'll be amazing-- miles away-- and the best part about it? There'd be no Alan, and we would be away from this crazy, cold town. (Laughs)

Beth: Sounds wonderful.

Coop: Exactly.

Beth: A new beginning.

Coop: It would be. But it would be more than that. It would be so much more than that, because I couldn't write something like this, because it's real. Beth, all you have to do is just tell me yes.

Beth: No.

Coop: No? No... no, as in "no?" Just like that?

Beth: No, no. I can't, I can't go away with you. What's more, we have to end this thing before it gets any worse.

Mr. Pearson: Your wife is definitely the type of person that we designed these fellowships for. I mean, the two of you, it's just... your marriage...

Christina: Does that mean I'm getting the grant?

Mr. Pearson: Well, I can't say for sure, but I would start planning my move to Baltimore if I were you.

Christina: Thank you, very, very much. Have a good day.

Mr. Pearson: You, too.

Remy: (Laughs)

Christina: Did you hear that?

Remy: Yes, I did, yes I... oh, my God, you are so proud! You were high and mighty! It was good!

Christina: I wasn't the only one.

Remy: Oh, man!

Christina: I mean, he practically called us the ideal married couple-- he totally thought we were in love.

Remy: Go figure.

Christina: Yeah. We sure showed him, huh?

Remy: Yeah. Yeah, we did. (Laughter)

Olivia: I'm sorry that your date got interrupted.

Natalia: Oh, no, it's okay. I mean, as soon as I got the call about Emma, I knew she needed me, right?

Emma: We're a family. That's what I wrote in my paper.

Natalia: I don't know what we got so riled up about. I mean, she... she knows better than we do. We're family.

Olivia: We are.

Natalia: Yeah.

Olivia: Because only family would tell you when you got a little... chocolate...

Natalia: Me?

Olivia: Mm-hmm.

Natalia: Where?

Olivia: Right here.

Natalia: My nose? How did it get on my nose? You did it!

Olivia: Come here.

Emma: No, I did not!

Natalia: Oh, God, I'm such a mess!

Olivia: It's sticky!

Emma: I didn't touch you!

Natalia: Look at you! You're a mess, too!

Olivia: Oh, this is brutal!

Natalia: Hey!

Buzz: Coop is a wonderful man. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body. Alan, what happened between him and Beth is just...

Alan: How long did you know, Buzz? How long did you sit there and do nothing while your boy put fantasies into Bethís mind. The same kind of fantasies that are in this book, huh?

Buzz: He's a great writer, and I know books.

Alan: Yeah, well, I know a lot of things.

Buzz: He just got an offer from Stanford. You can do anything you want to me, but keep your hand off my son.

Alan: Wait, wait, wait. Stanford? Buzz, there's an opportunity that could make us all happy. The only thing you have to do is make sure he takes that job.

Buzz: And forget about Beth.

Alan: He gets a career, I get my wife and you, Buzz, get a franchise. ( Laughs) Now, for once in your life, do something smart.

Buzz: Screw you! Screw you! You think I would sell out my son to keep this place? That's what you do; that's what the Spauldingís do, not the Cooperís. You can keep this damn place for all I care. Now get the hell out.

Coop: You... you talked to Alan, though. You told him it was over.

Beth: Yeah, yeah. I... I started to, and then I heard the words coming out of my mouth, and I... I realized that I was kidding myself. I mean, I... I can't leave Alan, the Spauldingís, all that represents.

Coop: Beth, stop, this is not funny. This is a joke...

Beth: It's not a joke. It's not... I'm not joking. You and me having a future, thatís... that's the joke. You're my daughter's ex-boyfriend.

Coop: (Laughs) And your mom is dating my dad. Life is complicated. We work through things. We make things happen; we make it work.

Beth: Yeah, life is a lot more complicated than one of your books.

Coop: What did Alan exactly say to you?

Beth: Alan... Alan didnít... Alan didn't do anything. It's you. It's you and... and your book. A book that you promised me would never be published, and then I walk into a book party where the cover practically has my face plastered on it.

Coop: I told you that was not my deal. I didnít... I didn't know about this, I didn't publish it. That was Blake. She did this behind my back.

Beth: Yeah, but Blake didn't write the book, did she? I mean, you see, that's what I mean about you being young and foolish. You do things and you don't think about the consequences. I think that's what our whole relationship has been like. It's been self indulgent, and careless and a selfish fantasy.

Coop: Stop. All right, you do not believe that. I know for a fact that you do not believe that.

Beth: Why? Why do you think that? Because you want a happy ending? I'm not a character in your book. I'm a grown woman. I have... I have children. I need a man, not a boy. I mean, not to say that it hasn't been fun, because it has been fun, but that's all that it's been. I see that now. Goodbye, Coop. Goodbye, Coop.

Beth: (Sobs).

Remy: If you were a bottle opener, where would you be?

Christina: This is not our house, nor our wine.

Remy: Well, you heard the man. Next stop, Baltimore. Let me guess, you are checking the weather in Baltimore.

Christina: No, the distance. Baltimore is 798 miles away.

Remy: Yeah? But it's a one-stop flight.

Christina: You checked?

Remy: I know my wife. I know she's going to need me to make sure she's relaxed and doesn't burn herself out studying.

Christina: You know I'm going to be in Baltimore for five years, and then there's the internship and residency...

Remy: So?

Christina: So? I appreciate you pretending to be married to me for the scholarship, but I don't expect you to stay married.

Remy: Hmm. Um, well, my mother always wanted me to be married to a doctor. Congratulations, Dr. Boudreau.

Natalia: All right, let me see you. Clean? Everything good? All right. I'm going to get her back to her babysitter, and then I think I'm going to try to get back to my date with Frank.

Olivia: Uh, yeah, sure. Would you mind just dropping her off with Jan? I need to talk to the manager about a party.

Natalia: Oh, for the Beacon?

Olivia: No, no, actually, it's a Valentine's day party. We're going to show this whole town what a loving family really looks like.

Natalia: Okay. Well, we can talk about that later. Are you ready? Come on.

Olivia: You have a problem with us, ladies?

Buzz: What are you doing?

Coop: It's over, Dad. Oh, you can go ahead and say it. You were right. You were right. You knew all along. You tried to tell me from the beginning. You knew how this was going to end, and I didn't listen to you.

Buzz: Beth ended it? Maybe it's for the best.

Coop: How? Huh? How is this for the best? This is not what... this is not what Beth wants! This is what Alan wants!

Buzz: But you said that...

Coop: I know what I said, Dad. She ended it, I know that. She said some hurtful things to me. She said outrageous things to me, and then I turn around and I see her crying? This is not what she wants! She said this to push me away! Alan was the one that wanted this; he was the one that made her. She's not happy-- I'm not happy! Alan is the only one that's happy here! Alan always wins! Always!

Buzz: Maybe not always.

Coop: Oh, come on! Don't even try to make me feel better, Dad. I was there! You weren't there!

Buzz: I'm not, I'm just telling you what I know. Beth did not want to leave you. Alan did force her, because he knows everything.

Coop: Everything? He knows... well... well, then. It's not over. Dad, this is... this is not over, then. This is a long way from being over. Thank you. Thank you. I've got to go.

Buzz: (Sighs)

Alan: Well?

Beth: It's done.

Coming up on "Guiding Light"...

Beth: What more do you want from me?

Coop: I'm not afraid of him!

Buzz: Coop, there's a fine line between being brave and being stupid.

Coop: If you think I'm just going to step back and wish you two well, you are dead wrong.

Alan: If you walk away from me now, you will know what cruel truly is.
