Buzz: He said good-bye to me. How can you say good-bye to your son?
Lillian: He's breathing on a machine. It's up to you, now.
Buzz: Give me time with my son. I want you to help me get your father. I'm your dad. I'm going to look after you from now on.
Coop: I'm Henry Cooper Bradshaw. I'm your son.
Buzz: I love you, my son. I always will.
Olivia: Yeah. I'm on my way to the Beacon right now, okay? Natalia, I'll be there soon. All right. Bye.
There's a great new light.
It's cutting the blue above and the blue below.
And it's a long road.
Everybody sit at home.
And you alone are the one bright thing.
Alan: Oh, Elizabeth, I'm glad you're here.
Lizzie: Who was on the phone?
Alan: I have something very important to tell you. Your father has come home, but I just learned that he is in jail.
Lizzie: I know that. I'm the one that called the police.
Alan: How did you know he was here? I mean, you had already left the church when he showed up.
Lizzie: He came and found me. And I got scared, and I... are you mad at me?
Alan: No, of course not.
Lizzie: I didn't know why he was here or what he wanted. I didn't know if I could believe a word coming out of his mouth. Do you have any idea why he is here? Because he said he didn't know about the wedding before he got here?
Alan: No, I donít. But I'm glad you're here, safe, with me. There is a lot of confusion going on right now. I just spoke with Buzz earlier.
Lizzie: Great. Is Mom at the hospital?
Alan: Well, I think your mother is probably the most confused of everyone. I mean, this all could be avoided if only she had... (telephone rings) that's probably the press. They've been relentless all day.
Lizzie: I got it. Spaulding residence. Oh, hi, Nana. I'm sorry. We thought you were...
Alan: Elizabeth, what is it?
Lizzie: Coop died.
Lillian: I'm so sorry, Beth.
Beth: No, no, no.
Lillian: Sweetie. Sweetheart, he crashed. He just crashed. We couldn't get enough oxygen to his brain.
Beth: No, no, no, no. He was stable. I never would have left, but he was stable.
Lillian: He went stable, but then he crashed, sweetheart. There was too much damage. He fought so hard. He fought so hard.
Beth: No, no, no, no, no! Coop, come back to me. Come back. Come back. Come back. Please, come back. (Sobbing)
Buzz: I am sorry I had to do that. I took your brother away from you.
Frank: He was already gone, Pop.
Buzz: It was my call. My choice. Oh, God!
Buzz: I'm never going to talk to him again. Never.
Lillian: Tell me... just tell me what I can do for you.
Beth: There's nothing. I have to do this on my own. I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry. (Sobbing)
Alan: Elizabeth, I'm so, so sorry. I know how... how you must be feeling right now. I'm... I just want you to know one thing, that you do have your family. Now, situations like this can either break us or it could bring us together and make us stronger than ever, especially your mother.
Lizzie: What are you talking about?
Alan: Well, your mother is going to need a lot of our support right now. I mean, it was her choice that is the route of this tragedy. And she feels guilty enough without us reminding her of the role she played.
Lizzie: What makes you think Mom is going to want anything from you?
Alan: Who else does she have right now. I mean, she's angry at the wrong person. Now, it hasn't helped matters had that your father has come back, but I think you calling the police was a good idea because it will give us a good idea to figure out what kind of a mind-set he is in right now. Our family is in pieces right now, but at least all of the pieces are here. That says something.
Lizzie: I need to go to the hospital.
Alan: Why? I hope you're not going to offer your condolences to the Cooperís, because you will not be welcome there. They hate us.
Lizzie: I don't think that they're thinking about us right now, Granddad.
Alan: Elizabeth, our family is the measuring stick by which the Cooperís define themselves. They envy us.
Mallet: Hey, Olivia. Are you all right?
Olivia: It's like I was on auto pilot when I left the house. I was going to swing by the Beacon, and then I saw one of Emmaís dolls, and I just... I was wondering how long it was going to take him to come back and try to take my little girl away from me. The next thing I know, I'm just sitting outside the station, in the parking lot, trying to imagine what his face looks like.
Mallet: Why don't I have one of the guys here drive you home?
Olivia: No. I'm good. I'm fine, really. I can't do this.
Phillip: Hey Mallet! Mallet!
Phillip: It's dead around here today.
Phillip: Listen, have you heard anything about Coop? (Cell phone rings)
Mallet: Hold on. Hold on. Hey, baby, what's going on? How's Coop? Okay, I'll be right there. Yeah, I'm coming.
Phillip: Is he okay?
Mallet: Heís... heís... he's gone.
Phillip: Oh, no.
Frank: I can start making some calls.
Marina: I'll help.
Buzz: No, no. Wait a few minutes.
Frank: Somehow or some way we will get through this as a family.
Buzz: It's different this time, Frank.
Daisy: So... are you guys going over to Company?
Marina: Yeah. I think we'll head over there in a little bit. Why?
Daisy: Um, well, I was actually on my way there, and then I started panicking because I don't know what I'm going to say to Buzz.
Marina: I don't know if there is... if there is a right thing to say or a wrong thing to say. You know?
Daisy: He always knew what to say to me. You know, when we lost Gus. When my mom went away. When Rafe went to jail. Through all this stuff with Grady. He knew what to do for me. I just wish I knew what to do for him, you know? I don't even know what to do for myself. I mean, Coop's my uncle, but he was his son.
Mallet: I don't think Buzz is expecting us to be anything but there.
Daisy: I lost my parents, but kids aren't supposed to go first, even when they're grownup kids. I just don't know how a parent gets over that.
Marina: I'm not sure if they ever do.
Alan: Oh, how are you, Beth? I wanted to call you, but I thought it would be best if I gave you some space.
Beth: Why start now?
Alan: I think it's terrible, what has happened to Coop. I understand what you're going through.
Beth: The only man who understood anything about me is dead.
Frank: Hey, Pop. I... I went by your room. Did you even go up last night?
Buzz: No. I actually went for a walk. Not that long. I just started walking and walking until I wound up where it happened.
Frank: You walked to the accident site?
Buzz: Yeah. The sun was just coming up. It seemed wrong. It seemed like it should be dark. And then I walked home.
Lillian: I would have gone with you.
Buzz: I know. That's why I didn't tell you.
Lillian: Let me make some coffee.
Buzz: Okay. I called Lynne and told everyone.
Frank: Okay. Listen, I hope you don't mind. I called Blake. I didn't want her reading about it in the paper. Did you happen to make any other calls?
Frank: You know, Lucy, Rocky, or Harley?
Buzz: No, but it's time.
Frank: No worries. I can do that.
Buzz: No. I'm not going to dodge the hard stuff anymore. Look where it got us.
Frank: We're going to get through this, Pop.
Buzz: Hey. I've never been hugged so much in my life.
Daisy: I'm sorry.
Buzz: No. It's nice.
Daisy: It's just... I don't know... you said before that you didn't want any help. But whatever it is that you do want... I know it can be hard to know what that is...
Buzz: You're here. That's enough.
Lillian: Anyone want some coffee?
Buzz: Oh, coffee.
Daisy: I'll have some.
Mallet: Are you okay?
Marina: Yeah. I was thinking about what Daisy was saying before, you know, about kids going before their parents. I don't think I'd ever thought about that before.
Mallet: Yeah, most people donít. It's just not supposed to happen.
Marina: Yeah, but it could happen. I mean, here we are, and we're trying to have a family of our own and adopt a kid, and something like that could happen.
Mallet: Yeah, it could happen. But, you know, we've got to remember how excited we were to be put on that adoption list. I don't know if now is a good time, but maybe your family could use some good news. Maybe they could...
Marina: Hey, Mallet...
Mallet: Maybe they could use something that is hopeful. You know, it's hopeful.
Marina: I can't think of a worse time.
Tripped over my good deeds.
Fell down again.
My smile hit the dirt one more
Seem stuck here, but I can
It's only a shine, so it
shines in the darkness.
Melted away in the pure bliss.
Cyrus: Are you okay?
Lizzie: Coop died.
Cyrus: Yeah, I know. How are they, the Cooperís?
Lizzie: How do you think they are?
Cyrus: I wanted to do something, you know. I started to call Harley, but it just didn't seem right.
Lizzie: No, it probably wouldn't be.
Cyrus: Do you need anything else?
Lizzie: No. No, thanks. I'm fine. I was going to call Bill.
Lizzie: Because... I don't know why. Because my dad is back. Because Coop is... because Coop is dead. And my mom is... I don't know what my mom is. I guess I just wanted to hear his voice, hear him tell me that everything is going to be okay. But I can't hear... listen to a word that he says, anyway. So what am I doing?
Cyrus: Well, I think you're just reaching out.
Lizzie: No. I think I actually just hit rock bottom, and I'm just trying to dig and dig and dig, and see how much lower I can get.
Cyrus: You're really hard on yourself.
Lizzie: You have no idea. That is your job.
Lizzie: I think I'm going to add that to your list of duties. You are going to be my official butt-kicker. If you see that I need a swift kick to keep my on track, then you do that. You keep me away from Bill. Okay? I don't care if you have to rip my fingers off of the phone. Don't let me call him, okay?
Cyrus: I got it.
Lizzie: Do you think you can handle that?
Cyrus: You can count on me, Lizzie.
Alan: Beth, it's been my experience... that it's not wise to make decisions based on feelings. So I think that we should probably wait just a while to reschedule our wedding.
Alan: You said I do.
Beth: Yeah, well, I don't, not anymore.
Alan: Beth, we have been through this many times before. Every time you get upset, you want to break our relationship off, but it never takes.
Beth: Coop... Coop died trying to get to me, trying to get to the wedding.
Alan: But, Beth, it's not your fault that he didn't know when to give up.
Beth: He... he was going there, because he thought that I deserved better than you. And you know something? He was right. The least that I can do is honor who he was, and what he died trying to do.
Alan: Oh, please. You talk about him as if he was some paragon of virtue. He was sneaking around and having an affair like a coward.
Beth: He was not... he was not the coward! I was the coward! He hid because I wanted to. And he had patience in me, and he had faith that I would come around.
Alan: But your feelings for me stopped you.
Beth: No. Alan, my fear of you stopped me! Fear! Do you understand that? He wanted to tell the world how he felt about me.
Alan: But he wasn't brave enough for that, was he? He had to hide his words in some cheap novel.
Beth: My God, Alan! He just died.
Alan: It's very tragic when a young man, as young as Coop, is taken from us, Beth. But death doesn't wash away one's sins.
Beth: Well, you, of all people, had better hope that it does.
Lillian: Well, he just got off the phone with Rocky. I think that he needs a break.
Mallet: Yeah. We'll go make some calls about the service.
Marina: Hey Dais?
Daisy: Ah, yeah. I'm just going to stick around here and clean up a little bit more.
Buzz: It's clean, kiddo.
Daisy: I'm going to just double check the counter.
Frank: So, Pop, do you think Harley will make it to the funeral?
Buzz: What is Phillipís status?
Buzz: Will he make bail?
Frank: I don't know, Pop. That's up to the D.A. In my opinion, he's a flight risk. I don't think so. Listen, if you're worried about my sister, Phillip helping Coop isn't enough to clear him.
Buzz: I don't need him cleared. I need him out.
Frank: Exactly what did you and Phillip talk about yesterday?
Frank: Pop, stop. Stop. It's clean. What kind of justice are we talking about? What did Phillip say?
Buzz: Alan has to be taken down. Phillip is the one person who knows how to do that. That's what I told him. That's why I need him.
Frank: So you want to use Phillip as a weapon against Alan?
Buzz: If he's still dangerous, why not take advantage of it. Why not use it to channel it to heal his whole family.
Frank: You're going to have to try very hard to let this go. It was an accident. Nobody tampered with the car. Yes, we have a lot of reasons to go after Alan, but this is not one of them.
Buzz: Why the hell not? If I had done that before, your brother would still be alive. I mean, things have changed, or maybe they've stayed the same and I just didn't see it before. I'm sick and tired of keeping the peace in this town. When Alan lived here, I thought he could turn around. I should have known better. I could have done more.
Frank: You're wrong, you know?
Buzz: No. I've been wrong. For God sakes, Frank, I gave him the keys. I gave Coop the keys and sent him to his death. I've played devil's advocate for too long, because the devil has been sitting up there on the hill, in his house, laughing at us.
Daisy: Where is he going?
Frank: He just needs some time alone.
Beth: I have called James' boarding school, and I will send for the rest of Peytonís things later.
Alan: You know something, Beth, I've been thinking...
Beth: I don't care what you think. I thought I made that perfectly clear.
Alan: Tell me something, what did you and Coop have, other than sex?
Beth: We had something real.
Alan: I'm really sick of all of this sanctimonious crap about him being so inspiring, Beth! He was nothing more than a care-free writer. Did it ever occur to you that you weren't living Coop's fairytale? No, Beth, you were just trying to finish the one you had with Phillip. It was a game, that's all. A deranged game you were playing, pitting Coop and me in some kind of a competition.
Beth: Oh, please. It was never any contest.
Lillian: Lizzie, I just wanted to come by and see you. Oh, sweetie, are you okay?
Lillian: Oh, honey, I'm so sorry. I just wanted to check on you because when I was telling you before about everything, I was with Buzz, so I didn't have time.
Lizzie: It's okay. I'm just so glad that you called. I'm just glad that I heard from you and not from the newspaper. Are you going back to Company?
Lillian: I was just there. Yeah, I'm going to go back.
Lizzie: Okay. I want to come back with you. I was going to try to get some work done before I saw Buzz, but I just can't even think straight. So...
Lillian: Honey, I don't think today is a good day.
Lillian: Well, Buzz just doesn't feel like he's up to seeing anybody. I mean, it just happened.
Lizzie: Well, I'm not going to stay. I just want to see him. You know, I really, really loved Coop, and Buzz was always really nice to me. You know, he treated me like I was family.
Lillian: But you're not.
Lizzie: You're not family, either.
Lillian: Honey, that's different. I mean, I'm not going to tell you what to do...
Lizzie: But if you're last name is Spaulding, then you probably should just stay away.
Lillian: Buzz has always been fond of you, but today is different.
Lizzie: I was on his side about this. I didn't like this whole thing between Coop and Mom... is Mom allowed there?
Lillian: She wasn't there, honey. And it's not fair.
Lizzie: Well, okay. You know what I don't need? Is a life isn't fair speech, because I promise you I don't need any reminding.
Lillian: Lizzie, I will call you when it's the right time, okay? Trust me, sweetheart, please. Trust me. You know I love you. Are you going to be okay?
Lizzie: Yes, yes.
Lillian: All right, sweetie. I'm sorry. I really am.
Lizzie: Thank you for coming. I need Cyrus Foley immediately.
Olivia: Hi. Excuse me. I'm Olivia Spencer. I run the Beacon hotel. I understand you are the judge that was assigned Phillip Spauldingís arraignment, which means you'll probably be presiding over his trial, right?
The judge: I don't think this is an appropriate conversation.
Olivia: I just... I want to help. That's all. I want to testify. I'm one of the mothers of his children, and I know how dangerous he can be. And I think he belongs in jail.
The judge: You should speak to the prosecutor, Ms. Spencer.
Olivia: I know the prosecutor doesn't decide the case. I know how this system works, and how it doesn't work. And I just want to see justice served, whatever the cost.
The judge: I hope that's wasn't a bribe. Or you'll be looking at a trial of your own.
Lizzie: I almost called Bill, and there was no one around to stop me.
Cyrus: Yeah. Sorry about that.
Lizzie: Look, I know you're not happy. I know you couldn't possibly be happy. You want real, important work, and I've got you on Bill patrol.
Cyrus: Well, it's not your job to make my job more interesting. You've got enough on your mind.
Lizzie: Right, I do. And I have no one to bounce my ideas off of. I guess I feel like I just keep losing people. And the one person that I have, I keep shutting out.
Cyrus: Well, you're not going to lose me.
Lizzie: I'm not looking for reassurances, but thank you. What I am looking for is an ally at this company. What that will mean is more possibility, bigger budget projects. Basically, just a whole lot of time stuck with me.
Cyrus: I think I can handle that.
Lizzie: You really think that you're ready to step up? Be my number one person here?
Cyrus: I'm in.
Marina: The family photo album. Are you trying to make me cry?
Mallet: This one is mostly you. Look at this. I think this is your first pony ride. A nice shot with you and your mama. It looks like Frank's got you in the swimming pool with your pink swimmies on. That looks like a pretty big day there. It looks like you're learning how to ride a bike.
Marina: I know what I'm looking at.
Mallet: You've got your training wheels on. What are you looking at? You know what I'm looking at? I'm looking at life. Maybe not how it is today, but how life is on most days. You know, I donít... what happened to Coop was horrible. It was a horrible, horrible thing. And I don't know if we'll ever get over it, but I know that we're going to get through it. Because I don't want the lesson to be that we all take away from this is that somehow life is not worth it, because life is worth it. It is. And I know it's hard to stomach, but death is a part of life. I wish it wasn't like that, but it is. There is not much we can do about that. But life is also other things. It's the beautiful moments and really sweet moments. And really simple, wonderful moments that you wouldn't trade for anything in the world. Like you, running out with your pink swimmies on, smiling like an angel.
Marina: They're orange.
Mallet: No, that's pink.
Marina: The picture faded.
Mallet: Has the memory faded? Don't miss out. Don't miss out on making your own memories, making new memories, with your own child.
Marina: If we have a boy, can we name him Henry?
Phillip: I'm sorry about Coop.
Beth: Yeah, I wanted to thank you for risking your life so that he could have a few more hours of his.
Phillip: I wish there was something I could do, Beth.
Beth: I, um... I told your father that I'm leaving him, and I'm moving out. I wanted you to hear it from me.
Phillip: Is that the reason you came down here?
Beth: Yeah. I don't know where I'm going to go yet. I'll let you know when I know.
Phillip: I really wish that I could do more for you, Beth. That's not much I can do from in here.
Alan: Yes, do official visiting hours only apply to Phillip Spaulding? Well, then get me Chief Wolfe on the phone. Yes, it's Alan Spaulding. Look, forget about Chief Wolfe, and forget about your rules. I'm coming down there right now. No father should be kept from seeing his own son.
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Take care of yourself.
Buzz: Coop made a will. Why would someone so young make a will?
Bill: I'm here because of Lizzie. Phillip, I love your daughter.
Phillip: I was told that you kidnapped her.
Bill: I didn't do it.
Phillip: I'm interested in hearing more about your theory. Who is this mystery man?
Bill: Cyrus Foley.
