Blake: Yeah, food poisoning. Can't be pregnancy if you're with Olivia.
James: Hi, Officer. Did I do something wrong?
Reva: My husband is very good at what he does.
Shayne: I hope your husband is very good at what he does, Mom, because Dinah is with him. Her life is in his hands.
Emma: I'm here. I'm here. I hope you didn't start without me.
Olivia: Never. I would never do that. You need to wash your hands. So, what do we do?
Emma: Where's the little saucepan.
Olivia: It's next to the pots. And we need glasses. We need butter.
Emma: We need butter and wax paper.
Olivia: Okay, butter is in the fringe.
Emma: Wax paper is in the drawer. I know.
Olivia: Excellent. Now what?
Emma: Now we need a spatula.
Olivia: Okay. It's in the sink. It might need to be washed. All right. There you go.
Emma: This is going to be so exciting. I hope everybody at the barbecue loves them.
Olivia: They're going to love them. They're going to love, love, love them. Are you kidding?
Emma: Can we do the egg toss tomorrow? And then the three legged race? And then eat five hamburgers each?
Olivia: Yes, yes and no. We're not going to eat five hamburgers. It's going to make your tummy sick.
Emma: I'm so excited.
Olivia: I am so excited. It's going to be a great fourth of July. It's going to be the best one ever.
Emma: I never heard you say that. You always complain about barbecues. You say it's too hot. Your feet hurt. And the food stinks.
Olivia: What's your point? Do I say all that really?
Emma: Yeah. Why are you so into it this year?
Olivia: Because I'm going to be with my two favorite girls in the world. How could I not be? (Emma giggles) Here. Read that to Mommy. She can't see.
Reva: Hi. Look at you. You woke up, didn't you? You're my big boy. Yes, you're my big boy. Oh, I know. I know. You miss your daddy, don't you? I know. I miss your daddy, too, but he had to go away for a little while. He did. He had to go away so he could protect you and keep you safe. And we have to be brave and strong while he's gone. Can you do that? Huh? Can you be brave and strong? Can you be brave and strong? Of course you can. Because you're my brave and strong little boy, aren't you? You're my brave and strong little boy. Yes, you are. Yes, my brave boy.
Buzz: Oh Bessie, dammit! I needed this for the barbecue tomorrow. What am I supposed to serve, raw vegetables? Rick is going to love that!
Alan: You want me to alert the fire department?
Buzz: Do you see a fire?
Alan: No, Buzz, but it sounds like you needed some backup.
Buzz: My oven is on the fritz. Rick is depending on me for half of tomorrow's menu.
Alan: Look, all you have to have is Rick order some more of those horrible hot dogs he's so fond of.
Buzz: What about dessert?
Alan: Well, you can have that catered.
Buzz: I am the caterer!
Alan: Well then you should have a better oven, Buzz.
Buzz: Unless you have something constructive to offer, would you please leave my kitchen?
Alan: As a matter of fact, I do have a piece of advice for you. Stop caring so much about this barbecue. It's the same old nostalgic display every year.
Buzz: Then why do you come every year?
Alan: I come to realize how lucky I am that I don't have to mingle well these people the rest of the year.
Buzz: That's why James is so critical. You're feeding him this crap, aren't you?
Alan: I'm teaching James how to be a strong man.
Buzz: Really, why don't you teach him how to be happy? But you wouldn't know anything about that, would you?
Frank: Thank you, Liz. So what happened, James? Don't you usually get involved with white collar crimes.
James: Would you just fingerprint me, please?
Frank: Well, you know what? You're actually entitled to one phone call. Wouldn't want your grandfather accusing me of denying you of your personal rights, you know. So who's it going to be? You got a big shot attorney on your speed dial?
James: How about Daisy Lemay?
Frank: That's not going to happen.
Phillip: Guess they left it here for a reason. (Cell phone rings) Hello.
Frank: Phillip, Frank Cooper here. I'm at the police station with your son.
Phillip: What happened?
Frank: He was just picked up for a DUI, an open container.
Phillip: I'll be right there.
Natalia: Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, amen.
Emma: Where's Natalia? I want to start mixing.
Olivia: She is upstairs. Her tummy is not feeling so good, okay? Give her a minute.
Emma: Maybe I should check on her.
Olivia: All right, go check on her. (Knock on the door)
Emma: Natalia, are you okay? What are you doing in there?
Natalia: I'm going to be out in just a second, Em, okay?
Emma: Are you okay? Mom said you're sick. Is it your stomach?
Natalia: Yeah, I'm going to be right down, just one minute.
Olivia: Hey, are you okay? Maybe.. maybe you have food poisoning. That sandwich you ate was a little dicey.
Natalia: Yeah, I don't think it was the sandwiches.
Emma: We can't start making the rice crispy treats without you.
Olivia: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Are you okay?
Natalia: Yeah. I'm fine. You guys worry too much. I'm fine, see.
Olivia: Really? Because you look a little pale.
Natalia: No, I think that maybe it was just the heat today and I didn't drink enough water. I'm fine. Did you get everything all set and ready?
Olivia: Wait, wait, wait. Why don't you go lie down? The treats can wait.
Natalia: No, I'm fine. I promise. And we're going to go downstairs and we're going to make the most patriotic rice crispies anyone has ever seen.
Olivia: All right. All right. I'll guard the marshmallows because somebody tries to steal them.
Emma: Who? You?
Olivia: Snap. (Laughter)
James: What is he doing here?
Frank: He is your father. I'll let the two of you talk.
Phillip: I know you're still angry with me.
James: You have to care to be angry.
Phillip: James, we can fix this, but we have to be able to talk to each other to do that.
James: Fix it? Fix what? You can't fix something that never worked in the first place.
Phillip: You don't believe that?
James: Maybe I do. So are you going to ground me for two weeks? Have me pick up more trash on the highway?
Phillip: I didn't come here to punish you.
James: So you're not mad that I got caught drinking and driving?
Phillip: I'm not mad. You know, James, you have this all wrong.
James: You had me arrested, okay. It's kind of hard to get that wrong.
Phillip: You know, you think I did that to be cruel and to punish you, but I didnít. I did it because I care. Because the only thing in this world that matters to me is that you and your brother and sisters are okay. And you... you don't have to forgive me for all the things that have happened in the past. But you do, at least, have to believe that I love you.
Alan: You know, Buzz, just because you've fought in the war and served this country, you think you have the right to give everyone advice, don't you?
Buzz: No, not everyone, Alan, just you.
Alan: You hang that flag like you know something, know something the rest of us donít.
Buzz: Yeah, I know something. I know the fourth of July is tomorrow. That's what I know.
Alan: Yes, you think I've made a lot of bad choices in my life, don't you? But you don't know what it's like to be me. You don't know what it's like to have to fulfill goals and expectations that are placed upon you. Goals that are much more significant than this stupid barbecue. You know, Buzz, there's a reason why you ended up the way you ended up here in a diner, you can't even meet its bills.
Buzz: There is a reason why you are you. But I don't need to point out what you already know, do I? (Cell phone rings)
Alan: Excuse me.
Buzz: Hey, you.
Reva: Hi, hi, hi.
Buzz: And you, and you, and you. Is he absurdly cute or is it just me?
Reva: I knew coming here was a good idea.
Buzz: How are you holding up?
Reva: I'm fine. I was just wondering, this my famous green bean salad.
Buzz: What, for the before barbecue?
Reva: Yeah, I won't be able to be there, and I just thought maybe you could take that with you.
Buzz: Well, I could call it mine because Bessie is on the fritz.
Reva: Bessie? Is that your new dishwasher?
Buzz: No, that's my old oven. We're going to miss you. Can't you make it?
Reva: Itís... it's a long story. Just be sure to tell everybody I said hi.
Buzz: Reva, look, you know, I'm here if you need to talk about Jeffrey, about anything.
Reva: Yeah, you know what, he's going to have a meltdown. He hates this sling, so I'm going to have to get him home. But have a happy fourth.
Buzz: Happy fourth.
Emma: Will you do the three-legged race with me?
Olivia: What about...? I got my leg all ready. Look.
Emma: No offense, but Nataliaís faster. And I really want to win. But you can be on Rafe's team.
Olivia: Oh, I can, can I? Fine! I'll be on... I want to be on Rafe's team. You know that? I want... I want us all-- you and me and Natalia and Rafe-- to be a team one day, not just at the barbecue, but every day.
Buzz: Why do you quit on the day before the barbecue? You're quitting on me!
Josh: Who quit? A waitress or...
Buzz: No, not a waitress. The oven. I'm responsible for half of the menu at Rickís barbecue. I can't bake a potato.
Josh: Have you thought about replacing it?
Buzz: The oven? I can't afford to replace the oven. I can't afford a burner off the oven.
Josh: Well, this looks pretty good. Is that... is that Revaís bean casserole?
Buzz: How did you know that?
Josh: I don't know.
Buzz: Yeah, she dropped it off. It's for tomorrow.
Josh: Because she's not going to be there?
Buzz: Yeah, I guess so. I don't know. Why wouldn't she want to be there? Is she afraid people are going to ask about Jeffrey or what?
Josh: Well, I think that might be part of it, yes.
Buzz: I mean, you think she's all right? I'm mean, she acted upbeat when she was here, but I think a little too upbeat.
Josh: I think she's going to be fine. She's got a lot of people supporting her. Could you do me a favor, though?
Buzz: As long as it doesn't involve cooking, sure.
Josh: If you see her again if she comes in, just keep an eye on her.
Buzz: Yeah, absolutely, yeah.
Josh: Thank you.
Delivery man: Delivery for Buzz Cooper?
Buzz: That's me.
Delivery man: Sign here and you'll have a brand-new oven in your kitchen.
Buzz: Huh? What?
Delivery man: It's an oven, mister, not a new car.
Buzz: Who... who... who would... Mother Teresa?
Delivery man: No idea.
Josh: Yeah, son, it's me. I'm standing outside of your hotel. Just wondering if you're there, if you cooled down a little bit. Because I would like to talk to you about... your mom.
Reva: So Shayneís not here?
Josh: Doesn't look like it.
Reva: Darn. We came to wish him a happy fourth.
Josh: Because you're not going to be at the Bauer barbecue?
Reva: How would you know that?
Josh: Rick told me.
Reva: Oh, that's right, because you're checking up on me.
Josh: I was not checking up on you. Reva, I just... have you heard from Jeffrey?
Reva: Why would you ask me that question when you already know the answer? No. And I won't hear from Jeffrey until he finds Edmund. He's doing his job and I'm doing mine.
Josh: I think you should go to the Bauer barbecue.
Reva: Oh, now that's funny because I was just thinking that you should jump off a cliff.
Phillip: You know, I've been exactly where you are right now.
James: Bored? And hungry?
Phillip: Mad at the world.
James: I'm not mad at the world. Just you.
Phillip: I've been there, too. I used to get so angry with your grandfather, you know what I used to do?
James: Hide in his humidor, rearrange stuff on his desk?
Phillip: On second thought, you're doing pretty well on your own. Maybe I shouldn't give you any ideas.
James: Maybe not.
Phillip: What did you think, if you drove drunk and got caught you'd get my attention?
James: Granddad sent me to work. I got bored. So I had a beer.
Phillip: James, I spent years of my life fighting against my father, just hating him. And at the same time wishing... more than anything that he would just see me, notice me.
Phillip: Well, I'm telling you right now, I notice you. In this moment, I notice.
James: If you didn't come here to lecture me, what do you want?
Phillip: I talked to my lawyer. James, we're going to get you out of here. We're going to straighten this thing out in no time.
Phillip: What do you mean, why?
James: I mean, why do you want to get me out this time?
Phillip: James, I never wanted you to be in here. I want to... I want to take you home. I want to start working through all this.
James: All right, sounds great.
Phillip: Okay. Hey, what do you say tomorrow we go to the Bauer barbecue?
James: Are you serious?
Phillip: Why, you got plans?
James: You want to take me to the barbecue tomorrow? That's your solution to fixing all of our family's problems?
Phillip: No, not the family. Maybe just us. Maybe that's where we need to start, eat a little apple pie, play a little tug-of-war. You and me against other father and sons, that's something we've never done before.
Alan: You can thank me later.
James: Yeah, for what?
Alan: I arranged for your release.
Phillip: You paid bail?
Alan: I didn't have to. I made the arrest go away, just like it never happened.
Emma: It's perfect.
Olivia: Should we try one?
Emma: No, we can't cut it. It's supposed to stay perfect for the barbecue.
Natalia: Well, you did an amazing job, Emma.
Emma: I had help from you.
Olivia: What happened to me? What did I do, nothing? Especially when...
Emma: Can we go get ice cream now?
Olivia: Uh-huh, we'll all go. How's that?
Natalia: Well, actually, I'm going to hang back here, just clean up a little bit. But you guys go for ice cream.
Olivia: Okay. Would you take that out... put your hands under it, baby. Under it, okay? Take that out to the car and I'll be right out, okay? Okay. So, I was just thinking and realizing as we were doing this that, you know, we're a family. Because we do things together. Not that I know much about the real kind of family thing. This is the first bona fide experience I've had.
Natalia: Me, too.
Olivia: That's why I know when we talk to Emma, everything's going to be okay.
Olivia: It will be okay. Because she loves you so much and you love her. It shows. I just know. I know this is going to be a great day tomorrow. I can't wait.
Natalia: I know.
Olivia: What is in there, a Ferrari?
Buzz: No, even better, an oven. Courtesy of some anonymous benefactor. It wouldn't be you, would it?
Olivia: You know I love you, but I... this stove, oven thing is not my specialty. It's more Nataliaís.
Buzz: Are you okay?
Olivia: Yeah, great, why?
Buzz: You look incredibly happy.
Olivia: Oh my gosh, call a doctor!
Buzz: Okay. (Laughs)
Doris: People are beginning to see that little twinkle in your eye. You're going to have to think up some explanation.
Olivia: No. No, I'm not. Because Natalia and I are going to the Bauer barbecue together.
Doris: Together? As in together together?
Doris: So you already told Emma?
Olivia: No, no, we're going to do that tonight. But then after that, she and I are going to get on with spending our lives together and being happy.
Blake: Natalia? Hey. Are you okay?
Natalia: Blake, you were right. I'm pregnant.
Blake: Oh, you're pregnant.
Natalia: It was before Olivia and I even, you know, told each other how we felt.
Blake: This is Frank's baby? When did you find out?
Natalia: I just found out. I took a home pregnancy test. I really need... you can't tell anyone.
Blake: I wonít. I wonít. Frank is my friend, but you are my friend as well, so I just want to help. I think you should get checked out. You should go to Cedars and take a real test because these home pregnancy tests sometimes are just not accurate. And who knows, maybe you're not even pregnant.
Josh: Look, I realize it's none of my business whether you go to the Bauer barbecue or don't go to the...
Reva: Well, that's funny. You have a funny way of showing that you don't really care whether I go or not.
Josh: I do care. I care. And the fact is Jeffrey went to look for Edmund so you could live your life, so Colin could live his. And you're not doing that.
Reva: How do you know that? That's right, because you sit outside my house every day.
Josh: Jeffrey would want you to go.
Reva: Don't tell me what Jeffrey would want or wouldn't want, okay? This is all your fault that we're in this mess to begin with.
Josh: What? My fault that you're safe, that Colinís safe?
Reva: Your fault that my husband is gone, and I don't know when he's coming back. And that I have to lie to all of our friends about why.
Josh: Okay. I'm sorry about that. I really am. I wouldn't want that for you.
Reva: Join the club.
Josh: Tell me you'll at least think about going to the Bauer barbecue.
Reva: No can do. Because Hawk is coming for a visit, and I promised him that we were going to sit in front of the TV and watch the baseball game and gorge ourselves on microwave popcorn and hot dogs. And make sure that this little guy has a happy holiday. Unless of course you have a problem with that.
Alan: The car's outside so we can all go home and pretend this day never happened.
Phillip: That's what you think we should do? We should show James, once again, that actions have no consequences.
Alan: I'm just trying to bring a little balance to the situation, Phillip, that's all. After all, last time you put him in jail and threw away the key.
Phillip: It wasn't like that and you know it.
Alan: Well, then why don't you describe how it was, huh?
Phillip: Do you really want to have this same fight again?
Alan: That would be up to you.
Phillip: I can't do this. Not anymore.
Alan: Would you like for my assistant to call you and set up an appointment, maybe?
Phillip: Are you enjoying this? Your grandson has been arrested twice in one month. You think that's fine?
Alan: I'm not the one who sent him to jail.
James: I'm going to go.
Phillip: No, James. I was actually getting through to him before you showed up.
Alan: Oh, blame me. Not the father who left him for years and expects him to forgive him for that. James?
Beth: I just heard. Where's James?
Phillip: Not here.
Beth: What? Where is he?
Phillip: Well, by now I would imagine he's having a cigar in the back of Alanís limo. He showed up and got the charges erased. Got him released.
Beth: What happened?
Phillip: Beth, I was so close to getting through to him before Alan showed up. I think he was going to go to the barbecue with me. Eat the hot dogs and play the games. I know it's just a barbecue, but I thought we should do it once before we canít.
Beth: There's next year and... hey, come on. We'll have to have faith that he'll come around.
Phillip: Next year's not good enough. I got to do this now.
Beth: Do, do, do what?
Phillip: I got to make sure what happened with me and my father doesn't happen with me and my son.
James: You must love this, fathers and sons battling it out, fighting each other to the death.
Alan: No, no, no. I'm not... I didn't say that. I said that sometimes situations like that are needed. Now letís... let's talk about tomorrow, what do you say?
James: Let me guess, the barbecue. You want me to go with you, be on your touch football team.
Alan: Do I look like anyone who wants to be touched at a barbecue?
James: Okay, so what, more boring investors?
Alan: No, James, I have something else in mind. An island off the Caribbean. I have friends who are owners.
James: Of the resort?
Alan: No, it's not a resort. They own the entire island. You and I can lay around the pool, play a little tennis, golf. Be a heck of a lot better than apple pie and horrible hot dogs.
Josh: That was Billy.
Reva: Did he say you were an ass?
Josh: No, but I'm going to say it. I am an ass.
Reva: You said it, not me.
Josh: And I think I owe you an apology.
Reva: I'm listening.
Josh: I'm sorry I butted in.
Reva: That's good. And?
Josh: And you were right.
Josh: Spending the day with your dad and your son, watching a baseball game, sounds like an excellent fourth of July. How was that?
Reva: It was good.
Josh: Thank you.
Reva: But you could have also added something about how you can't help yourself from adding your two cents. You need to get a hobby, Josh. One besides always watching me.
Josh: Okay. You want the truth?
Josh: This is the truth. Rick sent me to look for you because he needs another able body for the three-legged race which, by the way...
Reva: (Laughs) I win every year.
Josh: You always win.
Reva: Always, every year. (Laughs) I need to go. I have to get him home. ( Laughs)
Josh: Have a good time with your dad and your son.
Olivia: I was just picturing the look on people's faces when we show up at the barbecue together. I mean, I know that Reva is going to have a crack or two.
Doris: And Alan.
Olivia: Well, you know, Phillip understands. He supports us. So he'll have our back.
Doris: I wonder what Ashlee is going to say when she hears.
Olivia: Maybe she'll be the first one to congratulate us?
Olivia: I am a little nervous thinking about it, though.
Doris: That's the point, right?
Olivia: No, I want people to see how normal we are. How we're just like every other couple except-- unlike half of them-- we actually like being together.
Doris: You are absolutely giddy. I think I need another drink.
Olivia: You can have what I have, you know.
Doris: Yeah, sure I can. And I can also wear a size 2.
Olivia: Natalia and I weren't looking for this. It just happened. And now I can't imagine my life without her. When we're together it's like things are how they're supposed to be. And I've never felt this way with anyone else.
Reva: We're going to have so much fun tomorrow with your grandpa. Your grandpa Hawk and you and me. I don't want to go to that old barbecue anyway. You know what? It will be a whole lot more fun if we watch the ball game here with your grandpa. How's that? How's that? Although it won't be as much fun without your daddy here, yelling like a crazy man at the TV. You know what? When your daddy gets home, we're going to go to a ball game. Yes, we are. And we're going to get you a hat. We're going to get you a mitt. We're going to get you the works. Yes, we are. Yes, we'll get you the works. Your daddy, he's a Sox fan, but I tell you a secret. I like the Cubs.
Alan: The jet is all set. We'll be leaving tomorrow morning. Believe me, James, you're going to be happy that you chose this trip to the Caribbean instead of that pathetic little barbecue. (Cell phone rings)
James: Hi, Mom.
Beth: James, I'm glad you picked up. We need to talk about what happened today.
James: You didn't need to worry, Mom.
Beth: Well, I did. And I am. And not just me, but your father, too.
James: We'll talk when I get back, okay?
Beth: Back? Back from where?
James: I'm going on a trip with Granddad.
Beth: Did you know about a trip? He says he's going on a trip with Alan.
Phillip: Why does my father want everything that I have?
Beth: Okay, okay, well, it's just a business trip. It's not the worst thing in the world. At least we know he won't be getting into trouble.
Phillip: I need to spend time with James.
Beth: You'll spend time with him as soon as he gets back.
Phillip: Not if Alan sucks him in, I wonít.
Beth: Let's look at the bright side. Considering the way James has been acting, we would be lucky if he found a focus. So maybe he does work for Alan for the summer and then he goes back to school in the fall.
Phillip: Summer may be all I have.
Beth: Well, just because he's going to college doesn't mean he's not going to be around. You'll see him. You'll work this out. You have plenty of time.
Frank: So there's no card?
Frank: You sure this for you?
Buzz: Frank, who else would it be for?
Frank: I don't know, Pop. It looks like you have a guardian angel.
Buzz: But it's a recession. Who has the money for something like this?
Frank: I don't know. But you know what? I'll call the manufacturer and see if I can get a name off the invoice.
Buzz: Okay. Hey, Frank, get me a beer while you're at it.
Frank: All right.
Buzz: I feel like celebrating.
Natalia: Thank you. Not just for the water. Thank you for being here with me.
Blake: You're going to be fine. You know that, right?
Doctor: Miss Rivera.
Blake: Oh, hi.
Doctor: The blood test confirmed that you are pregnant.
Blake: How far along is she, doctor?
Doctor: Well, we'll schedule a sonogram to determine that, but I'd say at least several months. Congratulations Miss Rivera. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Natalia: It's true. How did I not know this?
Blake: Sometimes we just don't see it.
Natalia: It should have been pretty obvious, I mean the symptoms, the nausea and dizziness. I think maybe I did know and maybe I just didn't want it to be true.
Blake: I'm going to be right outside, okay?
(Cell phone rings)
Olivia: Hi, what's up?
Natalia: Some errands.
Olivia: That's okay. Listen, Emmaís going to be home from a friend's house in, like, a couple of hours. I thought that we would order some dinner and have a regular, you know, family night, and then we would sit down and talk to her together.
Natalia: Oh, that sounds great. I just... I can't do that tonight.
Natalia: Something came up.
Olivia: Is everything okay?
Natalia: Yeah, of course. No, yeah, I just... I have to take care of it.
Olivia: Okay. We'll just... we'll tell her tomorrow before the barbecue. I'm really looking forward to walking in there together, you know, like a real family. And I know I'm being a big cheese ball, but I'm just so happy for us.
Natalia: Me too.
Olivia: Okay. Call me later. I love you.
Natalia: I love you, too.
Coming up, on "Guiding Light"...
Lizzie: No one is going to beat us at that three-legged race, no one.
Rick: No, no, no. Now that Philís back in town, you're going down.
Lillian: Don't you want someone to know? Someone like Beth.
Natalia: I really don't want her missing out on anything just because of me.
Olivia: I really want to talk to her before we show up together.
Blake: Everybody eventually comes back to Springfield because it's such a magical place. I'm so happy you're here.
