Previously on "Guiding Light"...

Alan: No Grady Foley?

Daisy: I don't think he's coming.

Lillian: Throwing Alan away or putting him in jail isn't going to change anything. Coop will still be dead.

Jeffrey: You going to pretend all day long?

Reva: I'm not having the c-section.

Jeffrey: I'm looking for precedents-- husband forcing his wife to have a procedure.

Messenger: These are for you. They're from the D.A. office.

Reva: That bastard.

Olivia: Jane, it's Olivia. Do you have her? Emma! No, I... no, you weren't supposed to have her. I just thought maybe... I don't have her. And I called her school, and I... never mind. Thanks. Hi, Mrs. Cullen, it's Olivia Spencer, Emma’s mom. Yeah. Look, I know that Emma and Sofia were talking about a play date. And I just wondered if Emma, you know, went over to your house after school without checking with me? No? All right. Thank you. Phillip, you took my little girl, you bastard.

Natalia: How long has he been like this?

Daisy: Um... ever since Grady didn't show up to testify against Alan. Buzz just caved.

Natalia: Buzz should have known better than to put his faith in someone like Grady.

Daisy: Grady's coming back, unless, I mean, Alan hurt him and he's lying in some ditch somewhere. I mean, if he's just scared, he'll be back.

Natalia: I know... I know you're young and you want to believe, and that's a good thing. It's a good thing to have faith, Daisy. But you just have to be careful where you put that faith.

Daisy: He'll be back.

Natalia: Look after your grandpa. If you need anything, call somebody, please. Call the doctor or Lillian. Call me, okay? Tell Marina I really like new babies and I'll baby-sit?

Daisy: Sure.

Daisy: Grandpa, you want some lunch?

Buzz: No.

Daisy: Hi, it's Daisy. Um, I need some help, and I didn't know who else to call.

Remy: Hey, can we go over your classes in a little bit? That was Daisy. She sounds really freaked out.

Christina: Yeah, sure, no problem. I have to read the class descriptions anyway. I don't want to make any wrong decisions.

Remy: What, like getting drunk and marrying someone dangerously handsome?

Christina: Ah, yeah. I don't know how I feel about that one still.

Remy: Okay.

Christina: Do you need my help?

Remy: No, no. I'll take care of it.

Christina: Okay. Well, I'll just narrow down my class list, and then you can help me with my final picks.

Mel: Final picks?

Remy: Yeah. Mrs. Boudreau here is making a class list for her first semester at Johns Hopkins.

Mel: Ooh, I'll do it. I mean, I'll help you do it. You need an objective opinion, right?

Remy: Yeah. That's perfect. Mel loves making decisions, especially other people’s.

Mel: Shut up. Go. I'll be done when you get back-- I mean, we'll be done. So, what do we have?

Doris: Well, I think you do have the precedents here to back you up, but you are going to need a lot more medical information if you want to beat Reva.

Jeffrey: The goal is not to beat her, Doris. It's to save her life. I love my wife, okay? It's not about winning.

Doris: It's always about winning.

Colin: Jeffrey, I'm so glad you called. Look, I think if we can sit down and go over all of this, you will understand it. This course of treatment is in Reva’s and the baby's best interests. I've got all of the results here from Reva’s current course of treatment, as well as the results we project for this round of radiation. Given her response last time, there is a high chance that Reva will survive. But we do need to treat this cancer aggressively in order to ensure Reva’s survival.

Doris: All good.

Colin: Look, I've got records here from her OB/GYN, who is completely on board with this, and who has gone over the risks with me. Statistics for c-sections in women with cancer, as well as survival rates for babies not in the final weeks of gestation.

Doris: Also good.

Colin: We're flying in a neonatal I.C.U. pediatrician from Chicago, just to take every precaution and ensure the best possible care for the baby.

Doris: Well, this should just about do it. Reva won't know what hit her.

Colin: What are we trying to hit her with?

Doris: Jeffrey is suing Reva for sole custody of the baby so that she will deliver it early and save her life.

Colin: That is the worst idea I have ever heard.

Lillian: So, you're supposed to go to court today and face Jeffrey?

Reva: Isn't that what the papers say? But, you know, I... I don't know what to do, Lillian. That's why I called you.

Lillian: This is huge.

Reva: No kidding. A part of me wants to get in my car right now and find Jeffrey and run him down, because I'm a fighter, right? When somebody pushes me, I push back.

Lillian: And what about the other part of you?

Reva: The other part understands, because if somebody told me that Jeffrey was about to make a decision that would cost him his life, I would do everything I could to stop him.

Lillian: So, which part of you is winning?

Reva: The mom part, I mean, because this decision can't be about winning. It can't be about my life, it can't be about Jeffrey’s life, it has to be about the baby. But I need medical information, Lillian. I need you to tell me exactly what my chances are and exactly what the baby's chances are.

Lillian: No, no, no, this is medicine. I can't give you exact answers. I can tell you about procedures and statistics, but I can't give you any guarantees.

Reva: I don't like that answer!

Lillian: Of course you don't like that answer. But you're going to have to choose with your heart.

Reva: Okay.

Colin: Look, I know you're her husband, I'm only her doctor. But I have been her doctor for a long time, and forcing Reva to do anything is a big mistake.

Jeffrey: I know how stubborn Reva can be. I'm hoping that this hearing will allow Reva to see how far I'm willing to go to keep her alive.

Colin: Well, even if she does understand that, it could still have a very adverse effect on her, the baby. And on top of all of that, we're... we're talking about Reva. She is the most unpredictable person I have ever met. She could...

Jeffrey: Thank you for bringing these medical records over, Doctor. If I need you to testify regarding these documents, can I count on you?

Colin: I don't know. I'll have to think about that.

Doris: You have two hours to do your thinking.

Colin: I'll let you know.

Jeffrey: Thank you.

Doris: Don't worry, Jeffrey. With all of this information, this case is a slam-dunk. I mean, I haven't been this excited to walk into a courtroom in a long time. I think you're going to break all sorts of precedents here-- I mean, maybe even get written up in a law journal.

Jeffrey: I don't care if we turn the legal world upside down. I just want to bring my wife and my baby home safe and sound.

Doris: Of course.

(Knock on door)

Jeffrey: Lillian.

Lillian: Um... I was just with Reva, and when I arrived, she was in tears.

Jeffrey: How was she when you left?

Lillian: Well, there was some talk about running you over.

Jeffrey: I figured.

Lillian: Look, I get what you're doing, and understand why you're doing it, and you may be right. But you could also be really wrong.

Jeffrey: We need her around, right? I... I need her.

Lillian: Yes, but she needs you, too, Jeffrey. Just remember that.

Doris: Don't worry, Jeffrey, you're going to win.

Colin: Hey.

Reva: Hi.

Colin: I just left your husband.

Reva: So what, you guys are going to team up together to take my baby away from me?

Colin: No. I told him he was making a big mistake, possibly the stupidest thing a man has ever done to a woman.

Reva: So, you're on my side?

Colin: No. I think Jeffrey is right. You need to deliver this baby as soon as possible and start this next round of radiation. I know forcing you to do anything makes any situation ten times worse.

Reva: You know what? Why don't you and me go and hit the bar, you know, sing some karaoke?

Colin: As much as I would love to do that... you need to figure this out. Your body is sick. You can pretend that it's not, just like you thought that hiding the cancer before would somehow make it go away. But sometimes, things won't fix themselves. Sometimes you have to take control. That's what Jeffrey is trying to do-- he's just trying to take control.

Reva: Well, you know how much I like to be controlled.

Colin: I know. Which brings me back to my original point, which was that maybe forcing you to do this is not the right move.

Reva: So what are you telling me I should do?

Colin: I don't know. That's why I'm an Oncologist, not a marriage counselor.

Reva: You're a big help. Mel. Hi. It’s... it's Reva O’Neill calling. I need a lawyer, and I... I need her to be a woman. Is there any chance that you might be able to meet me at the courthouse? Um, like now. Great. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much.

Mel: I am so sorry, I have to run. But we're only half done for this year's schedule.

Christina: That's okay. This was more help than I... I'll finish up.

Mel: You sure?

Christina: I am sure.

Mel: Okay.

Christina: Thank you.

Mel: Take care. Hi, sweetheart. Oh, listen, I have to run to the courthouse, okay? But buy yourself some fries, and I'll be back as soon as I can. Let me just give you some money here. All right. I love you.

Leah: Love you, too. Hi!

Christina: Hey. What's up?

Leah: Not much.

Christina: How you doing? What are you doing here?

Leah: My mom was supposed to help me pick out classes for next semester. Springfield U. freshman year.

Christina: You're going to Springfield U.? I went there, too. Let's sit down. I'll help you pick out your classes.

Leah: Okay.

Remy: She's worried about you. Didn't know who else to call.

Buzz: I'm fine.

Remy: As far as I can see, you're physically okay. Your vitals are cool, and your color is good.

Buzz: Thanks for stopping by.

Remy: Not so fast. I have some questions. So which is it, Buzz-- is it the sadness or the anger? When I wanted to kill Alan, all I did was drink and play poker. Sometimes it helped, sometimes it didn’t.

Buzz: And after a while, it feels okay?

Remy: No. No, the anger got worse, actually. Yeah, I just learned how to control it. But honestly, I wish I hadn't listened to everyone. I wish I'd gone after Alan. When Alan killed Tammy, I thought I was going to explode. When my son died, I thought I was going to die. So if Alan killed my son... look, Buzz, I'm not telling you to kill Alan. I'm just saying if you don't find a place to put the anger, it's going to kill you.

Buzz: You're good at saving people.

Remy: That's my job.

Buzz: Daisy, we've got some things to do, okay? Come on, get down here!

Natalia: What is that?

Olivia: It's a .9 millimeter.

Natalia: What is it doing in my house?

Olivia: I have it for protection, okay? I have a license, and I practice at the shooting range.

Natalia: I don't know if I like that. I don't know why you chose not to discuss this with me the fact you had a gun in this house.

Olivia: I never told you because I never needed to use it.

Natalia: So, you're going to use it right now?

Olivia: Yes, I am.

Natalia: What are you doing?

Olivia: Emma is missing. I called Jane, I called the school. I called everyone. Nothing. Phillip has her. Okay, I said that he was going to come back and take her away. No one would listen to me, so I'm going to get her back.

Natalia: Olivia, please don't be crazy.

Olivia: He has my little girl!

Natalia: All right. Well, you can't shoot him, because you're going to end up in jail!

Olivia: What am I supposed to do? He's going to take her out of the country.

Natalia: You can't shoot Phillip. You'll be the one behind bars. And you can't keep that in here.

Olivia: I'll put it away later. So, what am I going to do?

Natalia: You're going to go to the police station, and I am going to go out looking for her.

Olivia: Call my cell.

Natalia: Okay.

Olivia: Phillip Spaulding has my daughter.

Doris: What?

Olivia: Emma Spencer, my little girl, is missing, and Phillip, the one who kidnapped her before-- he has her.

Doris: Okay, wait, wait. Just calm down a minute, breathe. Just tell me all of the details.

Olivia: I told you everything I know.

Doris: Let's backtrack here a little bit. Did you call all of Emma’s little friends?

Olivia: I called everyone. I will go over your head if I have to.

Doris: Okay. There is no need, okay? I will send out a cruiser for her immediately, and we'll put out an A.P.B.

Olivia: Then, I want you to put Phillip in jail for the rest of his miserable life-- do you have that?

Doris: One step at a time.

Olivia: That's not good enough. How am I supposed to protect my daughter? Hello? What? Where? I'm on my way.

Reva: All I'm trying to do is protect the baby. You understand why I need what I need, right?

Mel: Jeffrey is taking you to court because you want to carry your baby full term? You're just looking out for your baby.

Reva: I knew you'd understand. I knew it. I mean, there are some health risks for me, but my baby's health is my first priority.

Mel: Well, it would be mine, too. It's not like your physically or mentally incapacitated. No judge is going to give him custody if you can walk in that that courtroom and state your case in front of the judge. We're going to win this thing. It's going to be a piece of cake.

Reva: Good. I want to win it. But I also want to make sure that Jeffrey doesn't suffer too much, either.

Mel: Well, we might not be able to avoid some injury. Current paternal rights state that Jeffrey has 50% control over the baby that's growing inside of you. So, if you want to make sure that only you can make the decisions surrounding the baby, then you're going to have to counter sue for sole custody.

Jeffrey: Thanks. Lillian, I need to show the judge the admitting papers so he knows that we're prepared to go forward with the procedures as soon as the hearing is over.

Lillian: I don't want you to hurt her. It's going to take such a toll on your relationship, Jeffrey.

Jeffrey: More of a toll than her dying?

Don't where we went wrong again

but I'm ready to give a goodbye

Jeffrey: You and I need to have a little talk, man to man. I know I'm asking a lot of you. You're going to come into this world with a lot harder fight than the rest of those guys in there. But you have ten toes and ten fingers. I've listened to your heartbeat, I've seen you suck your thumb. You're going to be okay, kid. I mean, look at your parents-- Reva Shayne and Jeffrey O’Neill, for God's sake. You're meant to be a fighter. I'm going to ask you to help me with your mother. Women are different, you know? You're going to find that out. Especially your mom. That's why I need her to be around for a long, long time. I wouldn’t... I wouldn't ask this of you unless I knew it was the right thing. I owe you.

Mel: Hello, Counselor.

Jeffrey: Mel. Hi.

Mel: Hey.

Jeffrey: What's this?

Mel: It's a motion to suppress any medical records gathered without my client's permission.

Jeffrey: Okay.

Mel: I can't believe you want to cut her baby right out of her body.

Jeffrey: It's my baby, too, Mel.

Mel: Well, you're going to have to prove that in court.

Jeffrey: Mel.

Mel: Yeah?

Jeffrey: I love her. I love Reva. I didn't want to, I didn't expect to, but I do. And loving her has been the most amazing, wonderful thing that has ever happened to me. I can raise this baby on my own-- I realize I have that in me, but I don't want to. I want to do it with her, with her right by my side, holding her hand, hearing her laugh. I love her, Mel.

Mel: Wow! No man has ever loved me like that.

Jeffrey: I'm sorry.

Mel: Me, too.

Doris: Reva. I just want to thank you for not giving in to Jeffrey. I mean, this is really one of the most fascinating cases I've worked on in a long time. I don't think I've had this much fun since, I don't know, the Annie Dutton trial. You were on that, too, weren't you?

Reva: Wait a minute. You're working with Jeffrey?

Doris: Yeah. I mean, being mayor has its own kind of high, but there is nothing that beats the adrenaline rush of the courtroom.

Reva: I'm sorry. So, you're using my baby and my cancer to get your rocks off?

Doris: Well, something like that.

Reva: How can you do that? You have to understand how I'm feeling. You're a mother, for God sake. You carried Ashlee.

Doris: Yes, of course.

Reva: Well... and you wouldn't knowingly let anyone do anything to hurt her.

Doris: Of course not.

Reva: Well, then I... you have... (groans)

Doris: Whoa! Here, sit, sit, sit. Let me help you.

Reva: Ooh, ooh!

Doris: (Gasps)

Reva: What?

Doris: Oh, my God. I felt the baby kick.

Reva: Pretty good, huh? Yeah, it's good, it's good. Strong.

Doris: Oh, my goodness. (Laughter) That's amazing.

Reva: I know.

Doris: Wow, it is amazing.

Reva: Yeah, I know. He's actually a miracle. And it's my job to take care of him.

Doris: I got it.

Lillian: Are you writing me a love letter?

Buzz: Uh... no. I was just...

Lillian: (Laughs) I'm glad to see you. I really am. I mean, you look like you're feeling a little better. Let me read my love letter.

Buzz: I didn’t...

Lillian: "Lillian, be back in a few days, Buzz." Oh, not where you're going or why?

Buzz: I didn't want to worry you.

Lillian: Oh, and you think this is not going to let me worry? I mean, this from a man who just had a heart attack and had just lost his son, and who has been ranting about Alan Spaulding? Where are you going?

Buzz: I'm going to get Grady.

Lillian: That's a terrible idea, Buzz.

Buzz: Daisy's coming with me.

Lillian: And that makes it better-- to take your granddaughter on a wild goose chase all over the country? To find a man who doesn't want to be found?

Buzz: There's something I have to do, and I'm going to do it.

Emma: This is fun.

Remy: Yeah. Yeah, it is fun. You know you should have told your mom where you're going, right?

Emma: Do you think she's mad?

Remy: Well, if she's anything like my mom, she'll hug you and yell at you at the same time.

Natalia: Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh! Emma! I was so worried about you! Don't ever do that to me again!

Emma: I'm sorry.

Remy: I saw her walking down Main Street. I asked her where she was going, and she said she was headed to the bus to see her dad.

Natalia: Emma, you know it's not safe for you to go see your dad by yourself.

Olivia: Emma, don't you ever do that again! I was worried sick about you!

Emma: That's the same thing Natalia said.

Natalia: She went to go see Phillip, and then Remy found her.

Olivia: Thank you.

Remy: Any time. So what's our deal, lady?

Emma: Every time I go out, I have to tell Mom first.

Olivia: You ask Mommy. You ask me or you ask Natalia.

Remy: If you can't find them, you call me.

Emma: And you'll let me ride in your truck?

Remy: Yes, with sirens on.

Emma: Cool!

Remy: You guys okay?

Olivia: Barely.

Natalia: We'll be fine. Thank you.

Remy: Okay. Call me if you need anything.

Natalia: Thank you.

Olivia: Thanks. You are in big trouble, young lady!

Emma: Oh!

Natalia: Don't look at me. You're on your own.

Doris: Jeffrey, I can't help you.

Jeffrey: What?

Doris: This case. Look, I know that you have a really good shot, but you're on your own.

Jeffrey: You're kidding me, right?

Doris: No.

Mel: Reva, we have to talk.

Reva: Okay, good.

Mel: No, not good.

Reva: Oh, don't tell me-- the court said no to suppressing my medical records?

Mel: No. I can't take your case, Reva.

Reva: And... and you're just telling me this now? We're supposed to meet with the judge in 20 minutes.

Mel: I know. I know. I talked to Jeffrey.

Doris: I just saw Reva, okay, and put my hand on her belly, and I felt the baby move.

Jeffrey: So?

Doris: Look, that is a life growing inside of her, okay? It's a little miracle.

Reva: Now I get it. The way he gave you that talk, the one about "she's hormonal, she can't make rational decisions"-- that one?

Mel: No. No. He said he loves you.

Reva: Of course he loves me. He's my husband.

Mel: No, I'm talking about something different, Reva. Men don't love women the way Jeffrey loves you. They're not usually capable of it. Now, I've known Jeffrey a long time, and before you, this would have never happened to him. You can't ask him to live without you. You can't waste that kind of unconditional love. Or at the very least, I'm not going to help you do it. I'm sorry.

Doris: I cannot be a part of separating that mother from that baby.

Jeffrey: This is a whole new you, Doris.

Doris: Don't worry-- it'll go away after a while. It always does.

Mel: I hope everything works out.

Reva: Thanks.

Olivia: Emma, come on. I thought I made myself clear. We talked. Your father is just not...

Natalia: Some... some people have sickness in their tummy or they have, you know, a cold in their nose and they have the sniffles, and some people have...

Olivia: Have a sickness in their head.

Emma: My daddy has that?

Olivia: Yeah, he does.

Emma: Does he need medicine?

Olivia: No, he needs shock treatment.

Natalia: He needs some time to get better.

Emma: Can I make him a card?

Natalia: Yeah, that's a good idea. You can make him a card. We'll make him a card when we get home. Do you want to go down the slide one more time?

Emma: Uh-huh.

Olivia: Phillip is not getting a card from her.

Natalia: Of course not. But you've got to let her love her dad for as long as she can.

Olivia: I get that she needs to love her dad. But, unfortunately, he's a monster.

Jeffrey: How are you feeling?

Reva: My feet are swollen.

Jeffrey: Why don't you sit?

Mel: I thought you were helping Jeffrey?

Doris: I thought you were Reva’s lawyer.

Mel: I couldn't do it. Jeffrey loves her so much. They've got to figure out a way to work this out. What about you?

Doris: Oh, I didn't have time.

Mel: You're here.

Doris: I felt the baby move.

Judge: O’Neill versus O’Neill. All right, let me see if I've got this straight. You, Mr. O’Neill, you want custody of your unborn child so that you can force your wife to have a c-section today?

Jeffrey: That is correct, your Honor, in order to save her life.

Judge: It looks like you, Mrs. O’Neill, have filed a countersuit for full custody?

Reva: Yes, your Honor. My baby is not at full term yet, and I just want to protect his health and well-being.

Judge: Well, you have yourselves in a pickle. Have either of you retained counsel?

Reva: Yes, yes. I mean, I had a lawyer, but she quit.

Jeffrey: I am an attorney, your Honor, and I will be representing... myself.

Judge: Well, it should be interesting. And, um, which one of you would like to go first?

Lillian: Can we talk about this just a little bit?

Buzz: Well, you can talk all you want; I'm not going to change my mind.

Lillian: I'm not asking you to change your mind. I'm asking you to think about the consequences of what you're doing.

Buzz: Do you think Alan Spaulding thinks about his consequences of what he's doing?

Lillian: You and Alan are very different men.

Buzz: Maybe not.

Lillian: Don't do this. Don't try to change into Alan Spaulding for some dark purpose you have. What are you going to accomplish by finding Grady?

Buzz: When I find Grady, I'm going to ask him to testify against him. If he won't do that, then I'm going to get Grady to kill him.

Lillian: No, you won't, because I'm not going to let you go.

Buzz: You can't stop me. Sorry I'm a little scary right now.

Lillian: Yeah, you're scary. You reminded me of Bradley when he used to abuse me every day. I don't think I can be in that place, Buzz.

Buzz: Well, that's where I am.

Lillian: Well, I can't live there.

Buzz: You don't have to worry-- I'm not going to be here. When I get back, you know...

Lillian: If you can't talk to me about what just happened right now, then I'm not going to promise I can be here when you get back.

Buzz: Well, that's okay.

Lillian: Who are you?

Buzz: I don't know.

Daisy: Hey, I got the prescription. Are you ready?

Buzz: Yeah. Go ahead.

Leah: Thank you for lunch and for everything. You knew so much about the teachers and everything. Thank you.

Christina: Any time. Listen, any time your mom is too busy to help you with your homework, you just give me a call. What's an aunt-in-law for?

Leah: She is so cool.

Remy: Yeah, she's -- you're cool. You're cool.

Leah: I would love to go to the mall with you. I'll ask my mom for her credit card, we can go shopping.

Remy: It's a good idea.

Christina: Give me a call. (Laughter) I'll see you soon.

Leah: Okay. Bye!

Remy: Bye, apple head. You're bad. You are so bad. And not in a good way. I mean, like, you're bad.

Christina: What did I do?

Remy: What... you totally chose her classes because my sister chose yours.

Christina: No!

Remy: Yes! Yes, you did. Listen, I am not getting stuck in the middle of a war between you and my sister. No! No way!

Christina: Well, who's side would you be on?

Remy: See, now that's not even fair. That is not even fair. I refuse to dive in that pool.

Christina: Fine.

Remy: Fine.

Christina: Buy me an ice cream.

Olivia: Why? Why do you do that?

Natalia: What?

Olivia: Try and smooth things over with Emma when it comes to Phillip. When you know his history. When you know I don't want him anywhere near her.

Natalia: Because that's hard on a little girl. We need to let her love her father, and figure out how to keep him out of her life.

Olivia: So, you agree with me about Phillip?

Natalia: I don't know Phillip. And I don't know that I will ever understand what you went through. But today, when Emma went missing, and I thought for one second that he took her, I wanted him locked up. We can't let him near her until we are positive he's okay.

Olivia: If ever.

Natalia: If ever. So we have to figure out how to handle this.

Olivia: Okay. So, now that you finally get it, how are we going to keep Phillip away from Emma?

Jeffrey: A neonatal specialist has been arranged to provide immediate care for the child. And then, Reva can begin the intensive treatments that she needs, your Honor, to save her life. I have documents here...

Judge: No, that's all right. I think I've got it. You want me to give you custody of the baby so that you can have your wife's stomach cut open, and they can take your premature baby out, so she can start a course of medication that she doesn't want to take.

Reva: I... I object, your Honor.

Judge: What?

Reva: I'm sorry, but he's only doing this because he loves me. And you make it sound so cold and clinical. He's been with me every step of the way through a very difficult pregnancy. And all he's ever done is... is everything in his power to take care of me and the baby. He's the best father, he's the best husband any woman could ever want. And for you to make him sound like he doesn't have a heart, it's just... it's not acceptable to me.

Judge: Well done, Mrs. O’Neill. Well, you just made the argument for the other side.

Reva: Oh.

Judge: So if I understand your case, you want me to give you custody of the baby so that you can carry it to term. But going through the last few weeks of your pregnancy will keep you from being able to go through the treatment that could keep you alive. So that when the baby is born, you, the sole custodian of this child, might not be there to raise it. Now, I don't see how that is looking after the welfare of your son.

Jeffrey: Excuse me, your Honor, Reva’s only thoughts throughout the course of this entire pregnancy has been exclusively for the well-being of this baby. Reva is a wonderful mother to the children that she already has. And I just... I just want to bring my wife and my baby home from the hospital happy and healthy! I'm sorry.

Reva: That's what I want, too.

Jeffrey: Well, how do we do that?

Reva: I... I don't know. Um... I could have blood tests taken every day, and if the count is too high, then I could consider having a c-section.

Jeffrey: And we could... we could have the baby measured every day. They... they can do that.

Reva: Yeah, they... they grow every day.

Jeffrey: I want you with me, Reva. I made a... a deal with our son today. I told him that we were going to ask a little favor of him. But he told me he's going to be strong, just like his mother. He's going to make it.

Reva: So am I.

Jeffrey: That's all I wanted to hear.

Judge: Looks like you two have worked this out. Case dismissed.

Next week on "Guiding Light"...

Everyone: To Dinah!

Phillip: I know. I know everything.
