Beth: I can't go away with you. We have to end this thing before it gets any worse.
Dinah: We have no way of knowing if Edmund is for real.
Shayne: His grief seems for real to me.
Buzz: Beth did not want to leave you. Alan did force her.
Beth: It's done.
Dinah: Of all people, why Edmund?
Shayne: Why not Edmund? Who else is there?
Dinah: Me. You think Edmund understands you?
Shayne: I think we both lost Lara.
Dinah: What happened to that day when I found you in Germany, and you were a lost soul. We connected.
Shayne: Ah, that's right. Strangers on a train who never thought they'd see each other again.
Dinah: I told you things. Risky things, like my involvement in Lizzie’s kidnapping, and you told me about Lara’s death and the guilt. What does that tell you?
Shayne: That life's kicked us both in the teeth?
Dinah: Well, I think that it's probably that we actually have something in common.
Shayne: Oh, battle scars.
Dinah: More than that.
Dinah: I don't know how it happened, but I trust you. And I think you trust me, too.
Dinah: You know, when you save somebody, you're connected forever.
Shayne: You think so?
Dinah: Uh-huh. I do. I don't think every girl you care about is going to leave you.
Shayne: Then... what I need to do next is make peace with Lara. And I need Edmund for that.
Dinah: What if this is just a scam?
Shayne: I'm going to test him. I'm going to tell him that Lara died because of me.
Dinah: No! You can't do that!
Shayne: Yes. Dinah, it's the truth.
Dinah: If you do that, I'm gonna lose you. And I don't want to lose you.
Edmund: He seems sincere. The kind of man you always said he was. But how do I know that Shayne is not just another Lewis. My enemy's son is still my enemy, right?
Josh: Hello, Edmund.
Edmund: Hello, Josh. Come on in.
Josh: Unbelievable. You wanting to work with my son, honoring your daughter's memory. It's all just a lie, isn't it? Who is it? Who is your partner? Who is your partner in crime?
Reva: I can't believe we're here. And that this day has actually arrived.
Jeffrey: I know. And to think it only took a little bit of faith, and, well, one hot, very sexy night.
Reva: H'mmm. And now that Dinah is looking out for Shayne, I can concentrate on my breathing.
Jeffrey: Breathe in, breathe out. I think, you know, you've got that one.
Reva: I should just warn you, though, that sometimes these birthing classes can be a bit graphic.
Jeffrey: (Laughing) Reva, come on. I'm a government agent, after all.
Jeffrey: I've seen a the lot of blood and guts before, okay? I've survived in the rainforest. I've dodged enemy bullets. I can kill a man with a toothpick.
Reva: Well, I don't think you're going to have to be doing any of that, but I'm glad you're in on this with me.
Jeffrey: Are you nervous?
Reva: Yes, I'm a bit nervous. It's like being on a roller coaster at the top when you know what's coming.
Jeffrey: And right before you take the plunge.
Reva: Exactly. (Laughing)
Jeffrey: So let's just... let's go in there, and we're going to be star pupils, okay?
Woman: Are you here for the class?
Jeffrey: Yes. We're having a baby.
Woman: Come on in then.
Buzz: Don't do it.
Buzz: Alan has guards. He has big, tough guards. And he has gates, big, steel gates, and weapons.
Coop: Dad, give me a break. I'm not going to break down the door or the gate, and then run in there and carry Beth off. That's not what I'm planning.
Buzz: All right.
Coop: I plan on sneaking in there, grabbing Beth, and getting out of there before Alan even knows what is going on, which is why I need you to create diversion for me.
Buzz: Absolutely not.
Coop: Dad, I need you, okay? Come on. Please.
Alan: I have a very special gift for you, Beth. It's an emerald bracelet, and I know how much you love emeralds.
Beth: Keep it. I don't want it.
Alan: You know, I remember a time when you used to love it when I touched you. When you felt safe with me, and happy with me.
Beth: I broke up with Coop. What more do you want from me?
Alan: I think I will feel better when we're married.
Beth: Fine. Fine. Then let's go down to the City Clerk's office, sign a license, and be done with it.
Alan: Our wedding will not be a back-road ceremony. Our wedding will be as public as my humiliation. Here, something for your scrapbook.
Beth: An invitation to our wedding? Alan, you can't be serious.
Alan: This time tomorrow, you will be my wife again.
Dinah: I'm not going to let what I put into you just turn into some self-destruction, so...
Shayne: I don't understand, because screwed up guys like me are a real catch. Hold on tight.
Dinah: (Laughing) Don't get crazy.
Dinah: But you do have potential.
Shayne: I'm a challenge.
Dinah: Yes, you are.
Shayne: You better be careful with that. Every dysfunctional, no-reason- to-live guy around is going to be beating a path to your door.
Dinah: Don't you worry. I'm all yours.
Shayne: Lucky me.
Dinah: Edmund, when he finds out about Lara’s death, that you're responsible, you know, I think all of my hard work will go out the window. He'll take you out.
Shayne: Okay. I won't tell him... for now. For now I won't tell him.
Dinah: Good choice. So you're going to say away from Edmund?
Shayne: No, I can't promise you that. Dinah, whether he is scamming me or not, I'm working on this project with him.
Dinah: Okay, what if I can prove you can't trust him?
Shayne: I know I can't trust him.
Dinah: You should probably take your cane.
Shayne: No. I'm walking pretty well without it.
Dinah: Great. But this will make an excellent weapon, though. You need all of the ammo you can get, if you're going to be hanging out with Edmund.
Shayne: Thanks for caring about me.
Dinah: Shayne, Edmund is as dangerous as anything you've seen before, I'm betting. Just be careful, okay?
Edmund: This is how I spend my days, Josh, talking to a picture. Taking the edge off of things. Care to join me?
Josh: Why did you call my son your enemy?
Edmund: That's what we've all been, isn't it? You, me, Reva, Jeffrey? And everyone else who has gotten caught in the cross-fire.
Josh: Not everyone.
Edmund: Look, I know you think I'm the bad guy. But what if Shayne is a fraud? How do I know his love for Lara was real?
Josh: Look into his eyes, Edmund. You can see his pain.
Edmund: True enough. It's like looking into a mirror.
Josh: Look... look, this idea you have of working with my son, let it go. Please! Let him get back to his life, back to his family.
Edmund: I'm not trying to replace the child I lost, Josh. I could never do that.
Josh: So what's your angle?
Edmund: I'm using this project as a way to test Shayne’s love for Lara.
Josh: Shayne doesn't have to prove anything to you. In fact, it's you that has to prove...
Edmund: Look... look, I know you hoped to come here and find me pulling the wings off of flies, or plotting the downfall of western civilization. But the only thing I'm looking for is a deeper connection to my daughter. Believe it or don't believe it.
Reva: I feel ancient.
Jeffrey: Well, that's because we're the only people who remember the first Bush president.
Reva: You're not helping.
Woman: Okay, today we are going to go over the importance of breathing during labor, so let's all get on our mats and get comfortable.
Reva: Easy for her to say, she can still see her toes. You're not very good at this.
Woman: Do you need any help?
Reva: Thank you. (Laughing)
Woman: You folks need a breather?
Jeffrey: No. We've got it. I don't think we need our walkers, either, do we?
Reva: You know, when you think of it, the breathing and relaxing thing is very important. I can do that.
Jeffrey: Well, then, you go, girl!
Reva: Well, you can do it, too.
Jeffrey: Okay, I can breathe, but it's the relaxing part I'm not sure about.
Woman: Okay. Everybody relax. It is time for a little film.
In the final stages of labor,
contractions are more intense.
Controlled breathing helps the
body focus on the delivery, not
And, finally, the baby's head
crowns with one last push.
Reva: Isn't it incredible?
Coop: We'll drive to the Spaulding’s, and we'll...
Buzz: No, no, no! I can't do this.
Coop: You can, Pop! You have to do this, okay? I'm not asking you to go five rounds with the security guards. I just need you to go to the gate and make a little bit of noise and distract them.
Buzz: What am I supposed to do? Like sing Greek drinking songs? Recite the daily dinner menu specials?
Coop: Anything. Anything, Dad! I just need to get inside the house. That's all.
Buzz: Coop, stop! Think. She made a choice and she picked Alan.
Coop: She doesn't pick Alan. That's the thing, she didn't pick him. Dad, he bullied her into it. Actually, he probably threatened to do something to Peyton. I mean, you know how Alan is.
Buzz: That's why I’m scared to death for you.
Coop: And that's why she is scared to death, too. That's why she is pushing me away, Dad.
Buzz: Or maybe she always wanted a life with Alan. Maybe it wasn't real with you.
Coop: No, no, no. That is not true. Because I was there. I felt it. It was real!
Buzz: You can't give her what she is used to.
Coop: But I can give her what she wants. I can give her an independent life. I can be supportive and be confident for her with her law career. I can be there for her. I can give her a future with me, Dad. I'm not afraid of him.
Buzz: Coop, there's a fine line between being brave and being stupid.
Coop: How is it stupid if you risk everything for love? You're the one, yourself, saying that love is worth every risk.
Buzz: And you pick now to listen to me! Listen to this, there are risks and there is Alan!
Coop: I am not turning my back on Beth. I am not giving up on her!
Beth: Alan, listen to me. I know that I hurt you, and I'm sorry, but you can't want me this way.
Alan: Beth, I want you any way I can get you.
Beth: We had a real marriage once, right? Do you remember our vows? We said that we would always love and respect each other.
Alan: And I have never stopped loving you. I have also never broken our vows. I think, Beth, that one day you and I will be happy together again.
Beth: Alan, please... please. I wish that it could be different. I do. I wish that we could go back in time to when it was just the two of us, and I felt safe. And I loved being with you. And I will always appreciate that time, but things have changed.
Alan: Beth, we share a beautiful daughter together. Now, don't you think that Peyton deserves to grow up in a home with her mommy and her daddy.
Beth: Peyton... Peyton deserves to see me happy and independent, having a life.
Alan: What better life could you want than that of being a Spaulding? Of course, our lives are lived out in the public eye. Everyone has seen our dirty laundry, but... here is our opportunity to wash it clean. Beth, this wedding will put to rest all doubts that you and I are meant to be together.
Coop: Beth! Beth, wait! No, no, no. Wait...
Beth: Coop, I... I...
Coop: I know Alan knows everything. My dad told me. That's why you are breaking up with me, right?
Beth: I can't talk to you right now.
Coop: Yes... no, you can. Please, stop! Stop! It all makes sense. You're pushing me away. He made you do this. I understand that now. It makes sense to me.
Beth: It's not what you think.
Coop: What did he say? He threatened you, didn't he? He threatened me... something. He was just blowing smoke, Beth. Listen to me. Listen to me. The only power Alan has over us is the power that we give him.
Beth: Coop, he'll do it and he'll get away with it. You're living in a dream world.
Coop: So what if I'm living in a dream world? Beth, the moment we stop dreaming, we're dead. And that's it.
Beth: You're so lucky to be able to believe that. I envy you.
Coop: Don't do that. Don't you dare do that. Don't you start giving in. Don't you start, because the moment you start, you're never going to stop.
Beth: I'm sorry. I wish that it...
Coop: No! Don’t... don’t... don't do that! Don't you wish, Beth. You need to believe.
Beth: I can’t.
Coop: Beth, stop. You need to believe. Just believe. Believe, please.
Josh: Hey. Look at you. No cane, nothing!
Shayne: Just my own two feet.
Shayne: I came down to see if that job offer was still good?
Josh: You're serious? You'd work here?
Shayne: I would, if you'd have me.
Josh: I'm... I'm thinking yes, we can work out something. I'm sure we have some space around here for you.
Shayne: Good. Do you have space for the both of us?
Josh: Both of you?
Shayne: Edmund and I? We're working on this project together. It's a pediatric care center in Lara’s memory. He's talking to the hospital today about it.
Josh: Yeah, he did mention something to me about this.
Josh: Son, are you absolutely certain that you want to work with Edmund?
Shayne: I keep thinking that maybe this is what we need, you know? Everyone working together for something good. It's better than fighting, isn't it?
Josh: Yes, it is. I think that would be great.
Jeffrey: Okay. I did not faint, okay? I was just resting my eyes.
Reva: Of course you were. My super-spy tough guy, taken out by an itty-bitty baby's birth.
Jeffrey: Okay, that was not the miracle... the happy miracle of birth that we were watching. That was... that was like a car accident. I can still hear the screams. Is this really what we're headed for? Because I think enemy torture would be better for you.
Reva: Oh, calm down, my dear.
Jeffrey: Are you sure they should even be showing that stuff to women?
Reva: You know what? Can I tell you something? For the first time since my diagnosis, I feel normal.
Reva: Normal. I feel normal. Look at us. We're not worrying about chemo and cancer. We're like a husband and wife going to their first birthing class, just like all of those other husbands and wives in there, waiting for the arrival of their first child.
Jeffrey: Did you see those young twerps in there? I mean they were like...
Jeffrey: They were like sadists. They were having fun.
Reva: No. You know what they were really doing? They're out in the parking lot right now, crying or throwing up or something, or looking for a stiff drink. That's what they're doing.
Jeffrey: So you're not scared?
Reva: I'm terrified. I am terrified. But in the end, we're going to get our little boy. No pain, no gain, right? I am still freaked out about one little thing, though.
Jeffrey: What's that?
Reva: When we get into the delivery room, you're not gonna be a runner?
Jeffrey: A runner?
Reva: A runner.
Jeffrey: Um, no. No, no, I'm not. I will not.
Reva: Okay. So this is a good day, right?
Jeffrey: It's a good day.
Reva: Yes, it was a good day.
Edmund: I have great news.
Edmund: Take a look.
Reva: Lara Winslow Pediatric Care Center?
Edmund: We're going to break ground here by next month. Hasn't Shayne told you about this?
Jeffrey: Why would he?
Edmund: Because he is my new business partner.
Jeffrey: If you've got something on Edmund, just show me, and I promise I'll take care of him.
Beth: I have to go.
Beth: I have to (sobbing). I have to go.
Coop: Stop. He's got you on such a short leash. Unless you start running right now, this is what you have to look forward to. You realize that, don't you?
Beth: This is my decision...
Coop: Look at me! Stop! Look at me. Beth, where are you? I look at you, but I don't see you. Where are you?
Beth: It's me. It's me, believe me! Okay? It will make things a lot easier.
Coop: How? How does this... how does this make it easier, all right? Especially with you with him, how does that make it easier for me, knowing this!
Beth: When are you going to Stanford? I want... I want you to go to Stanford. I want to think about you writing in California. I want to think about that, and you teaching students to hope and dream.
Beth: Say something.
Coop: Coward. You are a damn coward, Beth.
Beth: You're right. And I guess it's better that you found out now. Good-bye.
Coop: If you think I'm just going to step back and wish you two well, and say have a nice life, you're wrong, Beth. You are dead wrong.
Reva: How did you do it?
Edmund: How did I... I don't understand.
Reva: How did you get Shayne to agree to help you with this?
Edmund: This is a good thing, Reva. It will be helping children in Lara’s name. It might even help your baby one day.
Reva: I guess this means you'll be staying in town?
Edmund: For a little while, yes. Reva, my daughter would want me to do this. And, fortunately, so does your son.
Reva: This is not good. This is not good for Shayne. This is not good for any of us.
Jeffrey: Well, maybe... maybe he has a point. Don't you want to hear me out?
Reva: You cannot make a single argument to keep Edmund here. He tried to kill one of my sons before. I won't let him do it again.
Shayne: Okay, so what do you think? This is the Lara Fasano Pediatric Care Center. Complete with everything, a play area in the middle for the children. It has an on-site research facility available. What do you think?
Josh: I think it looks great. I do.
Josh: Yeah. Funding's a little tight right now, but...
Shayne: Are you saying that because Edmund is involved?
Josh: No, son. I'm saying it, because it's an economic reality. I'll tell you what, I'll put some things together, crunch some numbers, and we'll see if it is feasible. How's that?
Shayne: I really want this, Dad.
Josh: I can see that.
Shayne: This is the only thing that I can do for Lara, except mourn her. This is the only thing that doesn't make me feel so helpless. And with this, she’s... with this, she'll never be forgotten.
Josh: I understand, son. We'll make it happen, okay?
Josh: Talk to Dan McGreedy down at the bank. He's a good guy. He used to watch you playing ball when you were a kid.
Shayne: Thank you. Thank you.
Josh: You're welcome. Hey, you in a hurry? Can I buy you some lunch?
Shayne: No, I'm gonna have to take a rain check on that one. I'm going to go talk to McGreedy right now.
Edmund: It's genuine, Dinah. Forgery never was one of my strong cards.
Dinah: Lara was pregnant?
Edmund: That's the one thing I knew about Lara that Shayne didn’t. She was pregnant, and he was the father.
Dinah: Lara was pregnant?
Edmund: When I met her, yes, she was. The fact that she was expecting her own child started her thinking about family. So she went looking for her father. I'll never forget the first time I met her. I was heavily medicated. So at first I thought I was hallucinating. She was so beautiful, so familiar. Her eyes. I knew those eyes. But how? And then she spoke.
Lara: I'm Lara, Lara Fasano.
Edmund: And then it hit me. Rachel Fasano. She worked in the palace when I was about 16. She smiled at me with those same, sparkling eyes. Rachel...
Lara: I'm her daughter, and yours.
Edmund: She sat by my bed, willing me back to life day after day. I wondered why she had come. Why I was given this gift after years of living a less than honorable life. And then she told me.
Lara: I'll submit to a D.N.A. test, if you want, but I'm yours. And my baby will be your grandchild. I know it's a lot all at once. So what are you thinking?
Edmund: I think I've been given a second chance.
Lara: Do you believe me?
Edmund: When she told me Shayne was the father, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Fate. Connecting me to the Lewis’s once again.
Dinah: What happened to the baby?
Edmund: Died with its mother.
Dinah: Shayne never knew. Why haven't you told him? Because you are... still testing him, aren't you? You're worried that he is not worthy enough of Lara.
Edmund: I owned that secret. That's the one thing of Lara’s that was all mine. I wasn't sure I wanted Shayne to know. I wasn't sure if he deserved to know.
Dinah: And now?
Edmund: He loved her. I can see that. And now when I'm working with him, I'll tell him the whole truth.
Dinah: No, you won’t.
Beth: Hello, Buzz.
Buzz: Hi, Beth. Coop's not here. I'm a little busy, so you need...
Beth: I'm not here to see Coop. I'm here to see you.
Buzz: You're marrying Alan again?
Beth: Yeah. I couldn't tell Coop. I didn't have the heart, or the nerve.
Buzz: He loves you.
Beth: I know.
Buzz: Do you love him?
Beth: I don't even know what love is anymore. I don't know if it's risk or duty or losing yourself or finding yourself?
Buzz: It's all of those things.
Beth: I was hoping to find that out again with Coop.
Buzz: What do you need from me?
Beth: Look, I need you to stop Coop from finding out about the wedding until after its over.
Buzz: Until he can't do anything about it?
Beth: Yeah. Alan... Alan and I are what we are. But Coop... Coop should have more. He deserves that. I want that for him. Because I do love him.
Coop: Hey, I'm just visiting Lizzie. I'm an old friend of hers.
Guard: No one gets in without authorization.
Coop: There sure are a lot of cars coming in and out. What's going on?
Guard: There's going to be a wedding tomorrow.
Coop: I've got to get in there.
Guard: No. No. No.
Coop: I just need... Beth! Beth! Beth! Let go of me. Come on.
Dinah: Is this your plan? To hurt Reva’s family by pushing her son over the edge?
Edmund: I'm not here to hurt anyone. Do I have to wear a sign?
Dinah: He has already lost the love of his life. If he learns that there was a child, it will destroy him. (Knock on the door)
Shayne: Hey, hey. Good news from Dan... hi. What's going on?
Edmund: So, everything went well at the bank?
Shayne: Yes. Everything went very well at the bank. We got the loan. Did I pass your test?
Edmund: Did I pass yours? Have you accepted me yet at Lara’s father?
Dinah: What are you two talking about?
Shayne: Nothing. We're just feeling each other out, that's all. You never picked up that hobby we talked about. And since I'm not going to be jumping off any buildings any time soon, why don't you work for us?
Edmund: Think about it. We could actually do some good. Surprise everyone.
Dinah: Fine. I will join your little do-gooder party. I just hope we all don't regret this.
Jeffrey: Hey, hey, hey. What happened to this being a nice, normal day.
Reva: Nice? Normal? Edmund Winslow? It doesn't work that way.
Jeffrey: Maybe... maybe this project will help Shayne out of his funk. It will give him something to do.
Reva: You thought that child-bearing video was scary. So is this Lara project. Edmund's latest scam? Hey.
Josh: Hey. Yeah. When I heard about this, when Shayne told me about it, I was scared, too. But maybe I was wrong.
Reva: It's Edmund Winslow! Homicidal, baby-snatching, arsonist Edmund! Have you both lost your minds?
Josh: Reva, I know. I know. But when Shayne was here before talking about it, there was something in his eyes. There was hope. This project... this is the first thing he'd been excited about since he got home.
Jeffrey: If he makes one wrong move... one wrong move... we'll nail him. But maybe it won't come to that.
Reva: You believe that?
Jeffrey: Reva, people change. Look at me.
Reva: You're a person. Edmund Winslow is a different species.
Alan: Do you like it?
Beth: Does it come in black?
Alan: You will wear this, and you will look beautiful, Beth.
Beth: You can get me to the alter, Alan, but you can't make me love you again.
Alan: All in due time.
Beth: You're deluding yourself.
Alan: No. You're the one having the fantasy.
Beth: It doesn't matter anymore, does it?
Alan: You will wear this dress. And when the minister asks you, "Do you take this man, forsaking all others?" You will look me in the eyes, and you will say "I do."
Beth: Alan? I'll say it, but when I do, I'll be thinking of Coop.
Coop: Marina, I got your message. Are you here? You said this was about Beth. I need to stop her! Marina, are you here? You're finally getting around to putting away those Christmas decorations, aren't you? Marina! Hey! Hey, the door is locked! Come on, open the door! Alan! Alan, you can't do this! Let me out! You can't stop me from seeing her, Alan! Open the door!
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Alan: We have to show this town that the Spaulding’s are stronger and more unified than we've ever been before.
Coop: This wedding is not going to happen!
Alan: No one will ever laugh at me again.
Coop: I can't have you stopping me.
