Previously on "Guiding Light"...
Alan: Forgive and forget, huh? This coming from a girl who just had her father arrested.
Lizzie: This is my family's fault.
Alan: Stop right there, Elizabeth. We have nothing to be sorry about. The fault lies with the people in this room.
Buzz: Get out of here! (Yelling)
Olivia: Just slow down.
Natalia: But we're late for Coop's memorial. This is disrespectful, you know, with Buzz hurting...
Olivia: They're strong people, and we're going to be there to help them.
Natalia: Losing a child. I mean, can you imagine. I had to go see Rafe as soon as I found out, and I prayed all night and... I mean, think about it.
Olivia: No. I'm not going to lose Emma. I'll never lose her.
Natalia: I'm sorry. I know you're worried about Phillip.
Olivia: As long as he's in jail, that's where he belongs.
Buzz: Out, Alan, now! (Yelling)
Lizzie: Stop, stop, enough!
Alan: It's all right, Elizabeth. But I am not leaving until you hear what I have to say.
Beth: Alan, stop this!
Lillian: Don't you realize people are hurting, Alan!
Alan: It's not my fault!
Daisy: Oh, yeah? Who else?
Alan: You know something? You're all delusional.
Daisy: You're the one who is delusional!
Josh: People, please!
Mallet: Just... just get him out of here. Just get him out of here.
Marina: We are trying to mourn somebody that we love.
Lizzie: I am so sorry. I'm sorry. That's why we came.
Buzz: This isn't about you. It's about him.
Alan: You know, Buzz, you've hated me a long time, and my family, and now you think you have a reason. Well, I am not responsible for what happened to Coop.
Buzz: One more word...
Frank: Enough is enough! (Yelling)
Lizzie: Buzz, please... (screaming)
Phillip: Now that I have your attention...
Alan: Frank, let him go!
Frank: Alan, stay out of this.
Phillip: It's all right, Frank, I'm not here to hurt anybody.
Frank: Really? Well, you'll have to pardon us. It's a little hard to buy.
Olivia: What is he doing here? He's supposed to be locked up.
Mallet: What are you doing? I don't get this.
Phillip: I made a deal. I'm out just for the day so that I could come here. Blake, I'm so sorry.
Blake: Donít... don't you say his name. Ross loved you.
Frank: Let's get him out of here.
Phillip: Wait a minute! Wait, please, Frank! Look, I'm sorry. I know that I shouldn't have done that. I just needed you all to listen to me. Just, please, it will only take a minute.
Frank: Yeah, we know. Spaulding's good, Cooper's bad, and it's our fault that Coop died. We got it. Get him out of here!
Alan: Elizabeth, wait here.
Mallet: Huh, you stay put!
Alan: Wait. You can't keep me here, Mallet.
Mallet: Watch me. You watch me.
Natalia: Are you okay?
Olivia: Do I look okay?
Beth: What was he thinking?
Rick: I don't know. He's obviously got a long way to go.
Phillip: Stop, please.
Marina: Diaz, go get the prowler.
Phillip: Look, I'm sorry about the gun.
Marina: You're sorry?
Phillip: Yes. But everybody was yelling and fighting, and I felt like I just needed to try to make everybody understand for one second, that what they're doing in there doesn't make any sense. They just need to understand, Frank.
Frank: What, understand that you're still dangerous? Well, guess what? Message received.
Marina: I need you to understand something, okay? Coop, he was as good as they come. And now he is gone, and now you and your father come in here expecting us to... I don't know what! We're supposed to take the blame? It makes me sick!
Marina: No, you wait! You need to stop doing this, okay? You and your family need to stop!
Phillip: I'm sorry. I am. I really am.
Frank: Well, you know what? Sorry just isn't good enough anymore.
Buzz: Frank, wait. Let him back in.
Mallet: Ah, ah, ah!
Alan: First you try to kick me out, and now you're not going to let me leave?
Mallet: Another minute or two, Alan, until we get Phillip in the car. And then, believe me, I will be thrilled to push, drag or carry you out of here myself.
Alan: Can you believe this?
Lizzie: Not now.
Alan: Phillip obviously needs our help.
Lizzie: Not now, okay?
Alan: It's going to be all right, Elizabeth.
Lizzie: When I saw him holding that gun, I just...
Alan: I'm not going to let him hurt you.
Lizzie: He already has.
Lillian: What was he thinking?
Beth: I don't know, Mom. I don't understand anything anymore.
Lillian: What you said about Coop was just beautiful. Where's Buzz?
Daisy: Why don't they just leave?
Ashlee: I know one thing. Coop would have taken this, and turned this into the best story ever.
Josh: Rick, can I talk to you for just a minute?
Rick: Sure. What's up?
Josh: Listen, I think when things settle down here, we need to get people out of here. It's not going to do anybody any good to linger in this place.
Rick: No, that's a good idea. You want to go to Company?
Josh: Yeah, that's a... a smart idea. Phillip? What's going on with Phillip?
Rick: I don't know Phillip the way I used to, Josh. In fact, I really haven't known him for a very long time.
Josh: Do you think he would have really hurt anyone?
Rick: I don't know.
Buzz: Frank, just please, okay?
Frank: Are you kidding me. You saw what he did.
Buzz: We're all here for the same reason. Maybe he has something to say.
Marina: I don't think we need to hear what he has to say.
Buzz: Maybe it is something we all need to hear, okay? For me? Frank? For me.
Frank: Let's go.
Natalia: Why don't you sit?
Olivia: No. I'm okay.
Natalia: You're not okay.
Olivia: If he stayed just one more minute...
Olivia: All I could think about is getting that gun out of his hands, and I swear I would have shot him.
Phillip: Excuse me. Um... I'm sorry about before. I just need your attention. Everybody's attention. There is so much going on here today, so much emotion, so much anger, and I see these two families going at each other. And I get it. I understand it better than anybody. But it's time for it to stop. I'm sorry about all of this. I'm sorry about what brings you here today. I know that you... all of you loved Coop. So to say that he touched the lives of everybody in this room, and what has happened to him is terrible and tragic. And I'm especially sad for you, Buzz. No one should ever have to bury a child. No one. But when you came to me in the jail, when you told me that you wanted to get Alan, and that he had to pay, and you wanted me to help you do it...
Phillip: ... I knew that that was just grief talking.
Alan: I don't care it was. Wait a minute, Buzz, you approached...
Phillip: Stop! Stop! Because you came to me less than two hours ago with almost the same speech! We have to stand up against these people! Remember? "These people" are us! Switch the names. Switch the anger, the need for revenge. There is no difference. We have to stop this... before it's too late. Before it's later than it already is. Now, I'm sure that a lot of you are wondering why I came back, and you're worried that I haven't changed, and I don't blame you a bit. But if I can just get you to see how pointless this all is, and how destructive, then maybe coming back, and even going to jail will be well worth it. We had a chance today, all of us, to pick which way this leads us, which road we're going to be on, who we're going to be with. You know, all of my life I heard people say that Springfield is a special place, but that is not true. This place is not special, anymore than any other place. It's us. It's everybody inside this room. Everybody outside those doors. We all have it in us to make it special, but have to make that choice. We have to want that. We have to be willing... to look at somebody who has hurt us, somebody who has wounded us as much as a human being can be wounded, and say, "I will not hate. I forgive. I don't fear. I embrace. I don't close my heart; I open it. I open it." That's what I wanted to say.
Buzz: That's it? Nothing about what he did? About what he deserves?
Buzz: My son is dead, and I can't bring him back.
Phillip: And I can't bring him back. No one can.
Buzz: My son is dead. This is unbelievable!
Frank: Pop, take it easy.
Buzz: It is unbelievable!
Marina: Let's go, okay? Let's go back to Company. Let's forget about Alan.
Buzz: How can we forget about Alan?
Daisy: Yes, Marina's right.
Buzz: He and Coop are linked! Don't you get that? He is supposed to get what he deserved today. What are we treated to? Why can't we all just get along?
Frank: Pop, slow down.
Buzz: If he doesn't want to help, fine! But we all are have a job to do. We all love Coop, and we all know what happened to him. And we all know who did it: Alan!
Natalia: We should go.
Natalia: Buzz is gone. The whole family is gone.
Olivia: I need a minute. I need your gun.
Officer: Ma'am, you can't touch that gun.
Phillip: Lizzie. I didn't mean to scare you.
Lizzie: Why are you here?
Phillip: Are you all right?
Lizzie: No, no, no, no, no. Do I look all right to you? I'm not all right.
Phillip: I'm just glad I found you. I thought...
Lizzie: You thought what? You thought I would take one look at you and run as far away from you as I could? Why would I do that? Tell me. Tell me, why would I think that I need to do that? Oh, yeah, that!
Phillip: Listen to me. I don't know how much time we have. I didn't come here to make a speech today.
Lizzie: You didn't?
Phillip: No... yes, I meant what I said up there, I meant every word of that. But the reason I cut the deal was so that I could see you.
Lizzie: To see me?
Phillip: Yes, because I am worried about you.
Lizzie: Well, I am a little worried about me right now, too.
Phillip: Honey, I can see how much you're still hurting. And it kills me to know that I'm responsible for most of that.
Lizzie: Not all of it?
Phillip: Look, we have so much in common, the two of us, aside from the obvious. You and I... you and I are alike. Now, I know I haven't been back home that long, and I know my take on everything is obviously limited. But there are some things I do know. I know the pressure that you are under. I know what it is like to have a dozen people pulling you...
Lizzie: You have no idea.
Phillip: I know what it did to me, and I don't want that to happen to you.
Alan: Well, Buzz, that was some speech that Phillip made, wasn't it?
Buzz: What do you want now?
Alan: Weren't you moved? I mean, I was.
Buzz: A comet from outer space couldn't move you.
Alan: Buzz, let's not do this. Let's think about what Phillip said and take it to heart.
Buzz: Don't lecture me.
Alan: I'm not lecturing you.
Buzz: No, it's harassment.
Frank: Hey, Pop, you got this?
Buzz: Yeah. He's all finished.
Frank: All right. We'll be back.
Alan: I'm not finished, Buzz. I'm just getting started.
Beth: Why are you doing this?
Alan: Did no one out here hear what Phillip just was talking about in there?
Lillian: We heard him.
Daisy: You're making things worse.
Marina: Just go, Alan.
Alan: I will go after I give you this, Buzz.
Rick: Stop putting Buzz through all of this.
Alan: That's my plan.
Alan: I don't want it anymore, Buzz. You can have it back.
Marina: What doesn't he want?
Buzz: He's giving me Company.
Alan: I'll speak with my lawyers tomorrow and make it official.
Buzz: Any other calls to make?
Alan: What do you mean, other calls?
Buzz: The newspaper, the television station? You can make the afternoon news.
Alan: I'm not doing this for publicity. Didn't you hear what Phillip said?
Buzz: You're not doing this because of his speech. You just don't want to be on the wrong end of bad publicity. Everyone in this town blames you for what happened to Coop.
Alan: I didn't do anything to Coop, Buzz, and you know it. Now, I am already on the wrong end of the publicity nightmare with what Coop did to me with her.
Rick: Stop it!
Beth: It's all right, Rick. He can't hurt me now.
Alan: Buzz, please, let's get past this, all right? Think about what Phillip said. Take your restaurant and go with God.
Natalia: What were you doing?
Olivia: I wanted to scare him.
Natalia: Well, you're scaring me.
Olivia: Well, look, now he is gone. No one knows where he is, and I'm scared!
Natalia: Okay. No, you're right. You should be scared. But you can't just go off like that. You have to think.
Olivia: I don't have to think. There's no time to think. He took my daughter away from me once before.
Natalia: Okay, Emma... if you get in trouble and you end up in jail, what's going to happen to her? What's going to happen to us?
Natalia: I'm... I'm saying that you have to start doing the right thing for Emma.
Olivia: No, no, no. What you said...
Natalia: I didn't say anything. I'm... you're worried about him?
Natalia: Because of Doris from the publicity getting their hands on Emmaís story?
Olivia: He's going to use it against me.
Natalia: Let me try to fix it.
Olivia: How? What do you mean?
Natalia: I will talk to Phillip. I will make him see that there is nothing between us, nothing.
Buzz: Wait. I don't want it.
Marina: Grandpa, just hold on.
Buzz: I'm not going to be a part of this, of this project. My son's blood is on this. So I don't want your restaurant. It's yours.
Alan: Don't be a fool, Buzz.
Buzz: I'm moving out today. I won't be used.
Phillip: Honey, what happened to me at the end... there is not a day that goes by that I don't think about it.
Lizzie: Funny. Me, too.
Phillip: You have a right to be angry.
Lizzie: Oh, I know that I do.
Phillip: And scared! But I may be the only person who can help you right now because I may be the only person that really understands you.
Lizzie: Well, I don't think that I'm all that mysterious.
Phillip: Listen to me! You know what I'm talking about. You do. You may not want to admit it right now, and that's fine. But you know that I'm right. You're special. You are very special. And the weight that you feel, and the pressure that you feel because of who you are, because of what you are, it can be crushing.
Lizzie: Stop! Stop!
Phillip: It can be crushing. It was for me. And I don't want that to happen to you. Do you understand? Because I love you. I care... honey, this is going to sound crazy to you. But right now, I may be the only person that you can really trust.
Frank: Phillip, don't make a move.
Mallet: Did he hurt you?
Lizzie: I'm... I'm...
Mallet: Lizzie, are you okay?
Lizzie: I'm okay. I'm okay.
Frank: Get him out of here.
Mallet: Let's go.
Frank: Come on.
Natalia: You're not saying anything.
Olivia: What am I supposed to say?
Natalia: It's just an idea, and it's not a bad idea.
Olivia: You'll go talk to Phillip?
Olivia: And you tell him that all of that talk that he is hearing about us is just that, it's talk?
Natalia: Yeah. I think I can make him understand.
Olivia: Yeah, I'm sure you could.
Natalia: Why is this a bad idea?
Olivia: Is that what you think that everyone wants to hear? Is that what you think he wants to hear? I donít... I don't understand the way you think sometimes. I just...
Natalia: Okay, I'm trying to help. I don't understand why you have to be mean.
Olivia: I... I don't need your help, okay? This is my problem.
Buzz: Can you believe him! My son, some deal. My son for a restaurant! He thinks he's going to wake up in a big, brass bed with crisp, bright linens on it, and it's like nothing is going to happen! Like nothing is gonna happen! This guy gets no deal! Not from any of us, not for a million bucks...
Lillian: Are you all right? Are you okay? Are you okay? Let me get you a glass of water.
Buzz: No, I don't need any water. I want to pack. I'm fine. Let's get packing. I'm fine.
Daisy: Wow, he's actually doing it.
Ashlee: He'll change his mind. He has to.
Daisy: I... I don't know. I don't know. He's different since... he's different.
Ashlee: I know. I mean, I seen him angry, but this really isn't the same. I'm really sorry about everything. About Coop and the restaurant.
Ashlee: No. Um, never mind. Forget it. I have sort of a confession to make. After Coop... I just need you to know the truth.
Daisy: The truth?
Ashlee: About Grady. I sort of like him.
Daisy: I... I don't get it.
Ashlee: Well, Grady, you know... I guess it's been going on for a while. I mean, it started when he helped me with the mugger and all of that. I can't stop thinking about him. It's not like it was with Coop, really...
Daisy: Um... you're talking about Grady? Grady, Grady?
Ashlee: Yeah. I mean, Doris called it first, of course. It's not like I've done anything. I really havenít. I don't even talk to him when you're not there. But I guess that's why I asked you guys to come and live with me, because I wanted him around all the time. I'm sorry.
Daisy: You're sorry?
Ashlee: I know this is a bad time, and... and... the thing is... I had to say good-bye to one friend today, and I don't want to lose another because I'm not being honest with her. It was weird that Grady didn't come to the memorial.
Daisy: Yeah. Yeah. We had a fight. I thought my family probably wouldn't want him at the service, so he left.
Ashlee: I'm sorry.
Buzz: I could use some help in here.
Daisy: Yeah, of course. We were hoping you'd change your mind.
Buzz: Not a chance.
Out of life, the queen would love.
And take your word straight
from the start.
And if that word fell short of
Alan: Well, there you are.
Alan: Elizabeth, I went looking for you. I wanted you to know that the police have taken your father back down to the station. He's back in jail now. You know, I don't think that there was a person there who actually heard what your father was talking about.
Lizzie: Did you?
Alan: Yes, I did. And that's why I gave Buzz his restaurant back.
Lizzie: You did?
Alan: Well, I gave it back to him, but he didn't take it. He said the only reason I was giving it to him was because of publicity. Now, if anyone else in this town, besides a Spaulding, had made that speech, they would have wanted a transcript of it or create a holiday for it. But no, no, because it was a Spaulding, it is somehow suspect and tainted. I gave this man back his restaurant, and he doesn't take it, as if I want it.
Lizzie: I can't deal with this right now.
Alan: Of course. Sweetheart, I'm sorry. It's your father. I know. I just I want you to know that... it's gonna be all right. You're going to be safe.
Frank: No, no. So you're just walking away.
Buzz: Frank, we're being kicked out. All of us are being kicked out of here.
Frank: You know what, Dad? I just don't get. You are this restaurant.
Buzz: Not anymore, Frank.
Frank: Pop, you know. Fine, how can I help you?
Buzz: Clean up the loose stuff. There was a load taken over by Rick and Josh. Oh, I don't think I even asked. Look, we have to leave the boarding house, so I don't know.
Marina: No. No. Of course, you are going to live with us. And both of you are, you'll live with us.
Mallet: That's fine. There is plenty of room.
Buzz: Well, look, I'll get a room as soon as I can.
Marina: No, no! Don't you dare!
Mallet: Buzz, nobody is going to come to this place without you being behind the counter.
Frank: Dad, Alan is going to get stuck, and he asked for it.
Ashlee: Should I take this out for you?
Ashlee: Daisy, don't be mad at me, please. I didn't do anything.
Daisy: Listen, um, I think Grady and I should move out, so...
Ashlee: No, no. Please don't do that. It really doesn't bother me.
Daisy: Well, it bothers me.
Frank: What do you want me to do? You want me to bring a load over or...
Buzz: No. Pack upstairs. We're gonna get this done.
Buzz: We're going to be okay.
Frank: I feel like we're leaving Coop here.
Buzz: No, son. He's coming with us, Frank.
Beth: I just feel like this is my fault. That the deal was my idea.
Buzz: I remember.
Beth: So I... I just...
Buzz: Back then, I would have lost it, no matter what. No doubt. Now I'm walking out. So you didn't cost me anything.
Beth: I miss him.
Natalia: Frank? I saw you headed this way.
Natalia: What's going on? I saw all these boxes in the window.
Frank: It's done. My dad turned over the entire restaurant to Alan, every last stick.
Natalia: Oh, no.
Frank: Oh, yes.
Natalia: Are you all right? Just tell me what I can do to help.
Alan: You want something?
Alan: Well, neither do I. Let's talk about your father.
Lizzie: No. Granddad, please!
Alan: Elizabeth, I watched you when he entered the room. You... you got very scared.
Lizzie: He had a gun.
Alan: I know that. I know it's going to be a while before we find out just exactly how he is doing. But I want you to know that you have nothing to worry about. I'm going to make sure that you feel safe.
Lizzie: You sound just like...
Alan: Sound like who?
Lizzie: Oh, forget it.
Alan: Where did you go?
Alan: Well, after your father's speech, you disappeared. Did you come here?
Lizzie: Yeah. Yeah, I came straight here.
Olivia: All right.
Phillip: All right, what?
Olivia: I can't wait. I need you to be straight with me about your intentions. Why are you here? And no speeches, no nothing. Just tell me the truth.
Buzz: Well, I guess we've got a load. Let's get going.
I tried wishing on a star I'm still here, you're so far away.
Said a prayer on my knees, nothing happened that I can see.
I said, oooh, I'm waiting on a miracle. Oooh, I'm waiting on a miracle.
Next on "Guiding Light"
Olivia: You want to know if I'm corrupting our daughter?
Phillip: I didn't know anything about your alternative lifestyle.
Lara: Think he's going to be surprised when I tell him the news? But I'm not worried, Shayne loves kids.
Shayne: You have a video of Lara?
Edmund: Would you like to see it?
