Alan: Everything that I am is because of an act of cowardice.
Mallet: I love Marina. It's really hard to be around her, though, thinking she's lying to me.
Olivia: Do you think Natalia is going to come back?
Blake: I don't know.
Olivia: We're going on a little field trip to Chicago.
Alan: Gerald Pierce is the man who took my place and went to war. He never came back.
Mallet: There can't be a special of meat loaf dinners.
Dinah: Yeah, these are for Reva. I'm trying to help her any way I can. I don't know what else to do for her.
Mallet: I'm sure she'll appreciate it.
Dinah: Well, it's not like she's really going to notice. She really is somewhere else these days.
Mallet: Well, that's understandable. She lost her husband.
Dinah: Speaking of husbands, how are you and Marina? How are things?
Mallet: Good. I mean other than the times I'm wondering if she is a murderer or not, other than that I would say pretty damn peachy.
Dinah: Happiness. We had a pact, didn't we?
Mallet: Yeah, I know. Yeah. I'm happy. I'm happy. I can be worried and happy at the same time.
Dinah: No, I've tried that, doesn't work. One emotion always wins out over the other.
Mallet: Well, I'm not worried about her. I'm just worried for her. I mean, I'm worried about her...
Dinah: Just stop. Come on, you promised me. Marina loves you. And she loves that baby, and that's all that matters. Okay?
Mallet: I know. I'm doing...
Dinah: Just leave it alone. Please, just leave it alone.
Mallet: I'm doing the best I can. I really am. I just want it to be okay, you know. And you're right, she's a wonderful person. She's a wonderful mother. That counts for a lot.
Dinah: It does.
Mallet: Coffee, got to get some coffee. Thanks.
Olivia: Come on, Em, let's go, let's go. We have to hit the road early. Go pack your toothbrush.
Emma: Why do I have to miss camp?
Olivia: Because, sweetie, this is important. It's going to be fun. It's going to be an adventure. Did you pack everything on your list?
Emma: I think.
Olivia: Come on, Emma, this is important to me.
Emma: You told me we were going to make cupcakes today.
Olivia: Enough, all right? It's going to be fun. It's going to be like a scavenger hunt. Now go pack your toothbrush, use the bathroom, because we're not going to stop. We have a plan, okay? Everything's going to be good.
Marina: One more? You make Mommy very, very happy. One more. Good! All right. Yeah, I know, sweetheart. I miss your daddy, too. He had to work late last night at the station again because he has to work very hard, so he can protect you and make this a safer and better world for you to grow up in. (Knock on the door) Who is it?
Reva: Marina, it's me. It's Reva.
Marina: Hey. I'm sorry.
Reva: That's okay.
Marina: I thought it might be Edmund.
Marina: Come in.
Marina: Come in, please. Sit down.
Reva: No, no, I don't want to sit. And I'm actually not here to leave Colin or anything. I just... I just need to get out of the house.
Marina: Yeah, are you sure? You don't want...
Reva: No, no. I just... I needed to get out of the house. I needed to get away from all the photos and all the things that Jeffrey and I bought together and, you know, the life we had and...
Marina: I know what you need. You need some tea and some cookies, and Colin needs some milk.
Reva: That would be great. That would be really great, thank you. I just need something, something to keep me distracted.
Marina: You're being so brave, Reva. And I just can't imagine what you must be feeling right now.
Reva: Anger. I'm so angry. Like in the middle of the night when I reach over for Jeffrey and he's not there, I... I want whoever did this to my husband to suffer.
Alex: It sounded like you when you were a boy, dropping down the stairs.
Phillip: Hey, I'm really glad you're here. I wanted to talk to you about Dad.
Alex: What's happened now?
Phillip: No, nothing bad. You... we went camping, did you hear that?
Alex: Yes, I did hear that.
Alex: How was it?
Phillip: Actually, it was really good. It was really, really bonding. A little like a page from "Boy's Life" magazine, oddly enough. We spent some real good father and son time together.
Phillip: Yeah, we did. Yeah. He told me about Vietnam.
Alex: I'm not quite sure what we're talking about here.
Phillip: He told me about how he got drafted, and how Brandon found a way for another boy to go in his place. And how that boy died.
Alex: I don't know what... I just don't think Alan would tell you that.
Phillip: No, he wouldnít. But he did. And I can see from your reaction that it's true, isn't it?
Alex: Well, I think that was probably the defining moment in Alanís life. And I think that was the moment I realized I lost the brother that I absolutely loved and adored.
Phillip: What's that?
Alex: This is a cancelled check sent. It was sent to Joanne Pierce ever since Alan read in the obituary column that Gerald had died in Vietnam. This check was sent to his widow and his young son. You notice no signature, no name. It was always sent from his offshore account that did absolutely nothing else but send these checks.
Phillip: So Alan sends money to his widow and her baby. Who is probably my age by now. God. All this... all this time he's been carrying this around with him, this guilt over somebody dying in his place. I don't think I have ever known who my father was... until this moment.
Alex: I'm not sure any of us ever knows who our parents really are. I mean, maybe we're not supposed to.
Alan: Well, I see we have some coffee. I'll take mine black, Alex.
Mallet: Hey, Ashlee.
Ashlee: Oh, hey, Mallet. Oh, you know, you can't order anything hot because...
Mallet: Yeah, no, no. I know, and... not a lot of coffee either. What are you working on?
Ashlee: It's a project I'm doing about Jeffrey OíNeill. It's going to run on WSPR.
Mallet: Well, he deserves that.
Ashlee: Yeah, he does. Dinah was just saying that, actually. She's a wreck over this whole thing.
Mallet: Yeah, well, we all are.
Ashlee: Well, we should be. I mean, this never should have happened. Jeffrey's death was a tragic byproduct of Edmund Winslowís murder. I mean, he was just a hero. He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Ashlee: Whoever is to blame, they deserve to be punished.
Marina: Oh, bud, here you go. There you are. Gosh, I cannot believe how big Colin' s getting. I swear, he's bigger than yesterday.
Reva: Henry, too. I'm afraid to look away for even a second for fear I'll miss something.
Marina: Oh, tell me about it. You know, I actually will get up in the middle of the night and walk up into his room, just to watch him sleep. I'm afraid he's going to wake up at like 3:00 in the morning and say some new word that I've never heard him say before. It's crazy. It's crazy.
Reva: No, it's not crazy. I do the same thing. Some people might think it's crazy, but we're moms. Being obsessed with our children is what we do best.
Marina: Yeah. You sure I can't watch him? You could go home. You could take a nap, go for a walk.
Reva: Are you trying to get rid of me?
Marina: No, gosh, no. No, I love the company. What is up, fussy man, huh? You want your Timmy the Tiger, huh? Is that who you want?
Reva: Thatís... that's the one that Jeffrey and I got him, isn't it?
Marina: It is. Yeah, it is. You guys brought him over as soon as we got him, and you came to baby-sit. I think it's one of the favorite toys.
Reva: Jeffrey picked it out. I wanted to get the lamb, but Jeffrey insisted on the tiger. He said every little boy needs big, strong animals to play with. And he was right, you know? All little boys need to have a male influence. Unfortunately, Colinís not... hey, is he... (Henry shrieks) (laughter)
Marina: Oh, goodness.
Reva: Do you have any laundry or that needs folding or dishes to do?
Marina: Yes, actually.
Reva: Because I need to keep busy. That would be really great.
Marina: I have enough laundry to last us a week, if you want.
Reva: Oh, good. I would love to watch you little bouncer boy. Are you a bouncer boy? Are you? Say bye-bye Mommy. See you in a little bit. Mommy will be back. Mommy will be right back.
Emma: I want to see my friends at camp.
Olivia: Honey, I know you do, but you're going to be a great helper to me. You're good at navigating and you can sing songs and keep me awake. We're going to go find Natalia and we're going to tell her we want her to come back home.
Emma: We're going to find Natalia?
Olivia: We're going to find her and we're going to bring her home.
Emma: Why can't we just call her?
Olivia: That's not the way it works. She has to... she has to see us, you know. She has to see that we care about her. And then she's going to give us hugs and kisses and... why don't you pick a song, okay? Just pick a song now and start singing, and then we'll just get there faster, okay, Em? Come on, sing. Why aren't you singing?
Emma: Because you're scaring me.
Alan: Leave it to you two to create some kind of drama. You know, Alexandra, I told you to stop having those mimosas at breakfast.
Phillip: Somebody is sending his widow money. Are you saying it's not you?
Alan: I send money to the IRS every April. I send money to my ex-wives for alimony. I send money to over 50 charities.
Phillip: It's a little different though, don't you think? This check is going to the family of the man who died in your place. He may not have meant anything to your father, but he meant something to you. He was real to you. He had a name and a face and a family.
Alan: I may have instructed my accountant to send this woman a check, but I can assure you, Phillip, it was nothing more than just for publicity.
Phillip: The check's anonymous.
Alan: I don't know where this woman or her son live. I haven't thought about them in years. So what you call conscience, or guilt, is really nothing more than a good tax shelter. Sorry to disappoint you, son.
Reva: Thank you for this, really. I'm sorry I just kind of barged in on you.
Marina: Oh, please, stop. We love the company. And you're a great folder. Who knew?
Reva: I haven't been really getting much sleep lately. I mean, it's not Colinís fault, obviously. I mean, he's an angel. He sleeps right through the night. Don't you, sweetie pie?
Marina: Why don't you just leave him here? I'll watch him sleep. I have to be up with Henry anyway. You can go upstairs in the guest room and just take a nap.
Reva: I don't think I could sleep, even if I tried.
Marina: How about I get you something to eat? You know? Or we could have those cookies and the tea?
Reva: It's okay. Really, I canít. I canít. I just... I canít. It's fine.
Marina: I just wish that there was something I could do to help.
Reva: Well, you canít. I'm sorry. I don't mean to sound.... it's just that Colin and I have to figure this out on our own. And actually, I think I'm about ready to go home now. There you go.
Reva: Thank you. Thank you, really, for everything that you've done. You've been very sweet. And I'll be in touch, we'll play.
Marina: Yes, please do.
Reva: Okay, baby. Bye, Henry. Bye, Henry.
Cop: I got something for you. Lab doesn't need it. You can do whatever you want with it.
Mallet: No, I don't want it. I don't want it. I mean, the family doesn't want it back because they know it was part of an investigation.
Cop: Still a pretty good stroller, even with the crack.
Mallet: Well, you got kids, you take it.
Cop: We do have a brand-new one.
Mallet: Then donate it. I just don't want to see it again.
Dinah: The picture looks really good. Put that after the first one and see if you can't trim the second clip.
Ashlee: Okay, how's that?
Dinah: Yeah, that's a lot better. Let's see if it times out with my voice over. Okay. Let's record it again.
Ashlee: Okay. Okay, rolling. Go.
Dinah: Jeffrey OíNeill came to our town as a mysterious stranger. He was hard to get to know, but the town won him over and he made a home here. He brought a lot to the town-- bravery as he battled organized crime with our police force, passion and determination during his time as our District Attorney. For years his career was his life. But his heart was changed by the love and laughter of the woman who brought him a happiness he never knew existed. Jeffrey OíNeill lived in our community, but he truly became a part of Springfield when he married Reva Shayne. Jeffrey and Reva shared a love that most of us only hope to find...
Ashlee: No, no, no, you were doing good. You should... you should just keep going.
Dinah: No, I like the last take that we had before this one. Why don't you just use that? Thank you.
(Knock on the door)
Shayne: I know you keep trying to kick me out. Just figured you could use some help putting groceries away.
Reva: Actually, I could use help eating it.
Shayne: I'm always good for some meat loaf.
Reva: That girlfriend of yours is pretty spectacular, you know. I wasn't sure about her at first, but I think she's okay, you know? She knew what I needed. A kind gesture, no hovering.
Shayne: She's good like that. She knows what people need.
Reva: You're lucky you found her. You take good care of her because a good relationship is worth so much more than anything else.
Marina: Hey, it's me. You know, on your way home today, do you mind going to the store and picking up some of those baby biscuits? I was thinking about taking Henry for a walk today and, you know, he loves to eat those biscuits when we're strolling around the park. You know, if you're not busy, maybe you could come with us. Okay.
Olivia: Yeah, Jane, thanks for taking Emma to camp. You okay to stay with her until I get back? Great. Tell her she can call me, okay? Great, bye. Hi, hello.
Jonesy: Hi, hey.
Olivia: Are you Jonesy?
Jonesy: Jonesy, that's me, hi.
Jonesy: Do we know each other?
Olivia: No, we donít. We have a mutual friend, Natalia Rivera.
Jonesy: Nat, yeah, great girl. I think she married Nicky.
Olivia: Yeah, she did. Nicky's dead.
Jonesy: Nicky's dead?
Olivia: Yeah, sorry. Natalia is really upset, obviously. And she took off and nobody knows where she is, and I thought maybe she came back here?
Jonesy: Well, I haven't seen her.
Olivia: See, I think you're lying to me.
Olivia: Yeah, I think you are. I can see it in your eyes. She's been here, you've seen her, you know where she is, so why don't you just tell me?
Jonesy: Look, lady...
Olivia: I want to know. I need to talk to her, do you understand? So I need you to tell me, just tell me where she is and I'll go.
Jonesy: Well, like I said, I don't know...
Olivia: Okay, fine, you know what? I've got time. I can hang out here, so don't mind me, all right? Hey, Josh, it's me.
Josh: Well, be still my beating heart. You up for a little pool today? I'm feeling lucky.
Olivia: Well, if you come and get me, I'm in?
Josh: Oh, I see. You're already ahead of me on the drinking thing, and you need a ride, okay. Where are you?
Olivia: Chicago. I have my car. I just need some bail money.
Shayne: You know... well, I probably shouldn't be telling this because I think Dinah wants it to be a surprise, but she's working on a thing for Jeffrey. She's going to air it on WSPR.
Reva: A story about Jeffrey?
Shayne: Yeah, a story. His story, to honor him. It's about his life, his love. It's about him. She's been working real hard on it, and I think you're really going to like it.
Reva: I really appreciate everything she's been doing.
Shayne: She really cares about helping you right now.
Reva: I know. It helps me, you know, because she was the last person that we know who was with Jeffrey, so having her around really helps.
Shayne: Okay. I'm glad.
Marina: I was thinking about
taking Henry for a walk today
and, you know, he loves to eat
those biscuits when we're
strolling around the park.
You know, if you're not busy,
maybe you could come with us.
Ashlee: Hello, little cutie. Oh, you dropped that. That is so sweet. Where did you get that?
Marina: Oh, it's from Jeffrey and Reva.
Ashlee: Oh. So are you serving hot things yet?
Marina: No, no, no, no. We're having a special on peanut butter and banana sandwiches, right, Lynn? Just to make up for it.
Ashlee: Ah, well, sold. I almost forgot to eat. Dinah has been working me so hard on this tribute to Jeffrey OíNeill.
Marina: Wow. For the memorial?
Ashlee: No, well, for the station. It's going to air on the same day that... of the service, you know. And then I'm clipping together a shorter version to air every year after his death.
Marina: Every year?
Ashlee: Yeah, you know, I mean, Dinah just wants everyone to know that he was a good man, and he died a hero.
Marina: Yeah, yeah, no, I agree. Jeffrey was a great man. He really was. And quite the hero. I just... I just wish everyone could just move on, you know? Move on with their lives. See ya.
Dinah: Feel better after you whacked that last one? That was a good one.
Mallet: Thanks. Yeah, I feel a little better.
Dinah: Who was that ball?
Mallet: Well, you know, I take turns. Some balls I whack, I pretend it's Marina for being a murderer. And sometimes I whack a ball believing it's me for thinking she's a murderer.
Dinah: Mallet, come on, you got to move on. You got to just... you got to move on. That's what I've done. I made a video about Jeffrey and I stopped. I moved on. And you have to do the same. You got to work it out. You got to get the tension out of you, and you just got to go forward.
Mallet: I'm trying.
Dinah: You want to hit another?
Mallet: Somebody ought to pitch.
Dinah: Go ahead.
Mallet: Let's go.
Dinah: All right.
Reva: Dinah, oh, hi. Come on in.
Dinah: I hope I'm not bothering you at all.
Reva: No, no, I'm glad you're here. Thank you, you know, so much for the gift. Shayne already ate one of the meals.
Dinah: Oh, well, those are for you.
Reva: Can I get you something?
Dinah: No, no. I just... I stopped by so that I could talk to you about something very important. I actually wanted your permission...
Reva: Oh, this is about the piece you're doing on Jeffrey? Shayne mentioned it to me. Oh, I'm sorry, I hope... I hope I didn't blow some big surprise or he didn't blow some big surprise.
Dinah: No, I would never ask Shayne to keep a secret from you, not at all, not ever.
Reva: He's lucky to have you. I'm lucky to have you. You know, you're like my link to Jeffrey. You know, you were the last person to see him. So I feel close to you. Makes me feel close to you.
Dinah: Reva, I'm going to make sure that you have everything you need to get through this time, okay?
Dinah: I promise.
Shayne: Hey, Ashlee.
Ashlee: Hey, how are you?
Shayne: Hey. I'm well, thank you.
Ashlee: Looking for Dinah?
Shayne: I am looking for Dinah, is she around?
Shayne: Okay, then I'm looking for this ham sandwich then.
Ashlee: You are such a nerd. I had to go all the way to Company for that.
Shayne: It's worth it. It's really good.
Ashlee: Yeah, I'm sure it is.
Shayne: Is that the Jeffrey piece?
Ashlee: Uh-huh, uh-huh. Yeah, it's going to be really good. I'm just waiting on some notes from Dinah. I don't know, she poured her heart into it, and you know that Dinah has a lot of heart.
Shayne: Yes, she does. May I see it?
Dinah: I was one of the last
people to spend time with Jeffrey OíNeill.
It was great to see this one-time loner fall so in love with his family.
He made me believe that we can all have that.
And we can if that's what we want.
Shayne: Thanks a lot.
Marina: Time to say bye to the tiger, huh? Okay. Bye-bye. Hey.
Marina: Reva came over before, with Colin. She's not okay. She's trying so hard to make it seem like she's okay, but she's not. I just wish that there was something I could do to help her, you know, help her move forward.
Mallet: Yeah, it's going to take some time. What are you doing? Why did you throw this away?
Marina: No, just leave it. Please leave it.
Mallet: Henry loves this.
Marina: Leave it.
Mallet: Henry loves this.
Marina: I know. It's from Jeffrey, okay. And I don't want it in my house anymore. I can't take this. I can't take constant reminders in my home of people that are gone now. I just want it gone.
Mallet: Well, you know what? That makes sense. Because we all want to move on. But guess what, it doesn't help to hide or to run away or to take things out on other people or to keep secrets. Doesn't, especially from each other.
Mallet: You can tell me anything. You know that, right?
Marina: Of course. You can tell me anything, too.
Phillip: No, that's it. I don't have a good address. All I've got is a P.O. Box in New Jersey, so that's what I need. I need a current address and a phone number for Joanne-- one word-- Pierce. P-I-E-R-C-E. Yeah, thanks. Hey.
Alan: Am I interrupting anything?
Phillip: No, I was... actually just thinking about another trip.
Alan: Oh, you're going camping?
Alan: We really showed them how it was done, didn't we?
Phillip: Yeah, it was fun. It was fun. You liked those s'mores, didn't you?
Alan: The s'mores were pretty good, yeah. So when are you leaving?
Phillip: You know, I'm not even really sure that I'm going anyplace. I was just doing some research. I always sort of fantasized about trying to see some of the classic old minor league ballparks, before they tear them all down and replace them with these retro reproductions. But you know, if I did it, I would be maybe a couple of weeks.
Alan: That sounds like a lot of fun.
Phillip: Yeah, I had originally been planning to do with James, but after the camping debacle... I think it might take more than a car to get him to go this time. So, I don't know. I guess I'll be buying hot dogs for one.
Alan: Why don't you make that for two, and I'll come with you.
Phillip: It's pretty much going to be baseball and beer and bleacher seats at five bucks a pop. I'm starting in St. Paul and going to work my way to New Jersey.
Alan: Are you going to drive all this by yourself?
Phillip: Yeah, why not. I think I can handle it.
Alan: The way you handled your driving on the camping trip, huh?
Phillip: Hey, Dad, look, I'm not saying I wouldn't enjoy the company. I'm just fairly certain that after a couple of days of driving the back roads and staying in lousy motels and pulling splinters out from the old seats at the ballpark, you'd probably be pulling a James on me.
Alan: Is that a challenge? Or are you afraid that I might catch the first foul ball, huh?
Phillip: Okay. You're on. I'll let you know when we're going.
Alan: Baseball, huh? I don't think so. What are you planning, son?
Olivia: Thank you so much. That guard was unbearable.
Josh: He said the same thing about you.
Olivia: How much do I owe you for this?
Josh: I'm not going to tell you.
Olivia: How am I going to pay you back?
Josh: Oh, you'll pay me back, Olivia, you will pay me back.
Olivia: All right, I at least owe you an explanation because you came all this way to bail me out.
Josh: Stop. You don't owe me anything at all, okay? I have several scenarios in my head of what was going on. I like them all. I think I'll stick with that.
Olivia: It was a good explanation.
Josh: I'm sure.
Marina: I really don't want there to be so much distance between us anymore.
Mallet: I don't either.
Marina: Promise me something?
Marina: You can always tell me. Whatever is going on in your head, or if something's wrong, you can tell me whatever you're feeling.
Mallet: You mean that?
Marina: Of course, I do.
Mallet: So no more secrets?
Mallet: I know what you did. I know you killed that man you thought was Edmund.
Dinah: What are you doing...
Shayne: Hi. Come here.
Dinah: ...With all these balloons?
Shayne: I thought I'd take you back to your carny days.
Dinah: Oh, you know how much I loved my carny days. Hi.
Shayne: Yeah, hi. Hi.
Shayne: How are you?
Dinah: I'm okay.
Shayne: I thought these would make us happy. There's a lot been going on. And I know balloons can make you happy and they can make you know that everything's going to be okay.
Dinah: How do you know that? How do you know that with everything that happened to Jeffrey and Reva? I mean, how do you know that for sure?
Shayne: I got a good feeling about it.
Shayne: What's your favorite color?
Shayne: Red, isn't it?
Shayne: I know, I got a bunch of blue ones. What's wrong with me?
Dinah: I love blue.
Shayne: No, yeah... do you?
Shayne: Well, I think there's a red one here. I think I got a red one.
Dinah: There's not a red one.
Shayne: Yeah, look around...
Dinah: There is a red one.
Shayne: There is a red one right there.
Shayne: Dinah Marler, will you marry me?
Next on "Guiding Light,"
Shayne: I want the ring. I want the license. And I want it all.
Mallet: Running away is not the answer. This is a serious issue.
Marina: You think that I killed Edmund?
Rafe: You didn't care about her or care about what made her happy. You just wanted someone to love you, and you couldn't find somebody so you chose my mother.
