Lizzie: Hurry, hurry, hurry. We've got to make it back to the wedding. We have to change. I want to call my dad after the wedding and tell him how much we love the house.
Phillip: Hey, Ed, it's Phillip. If you get a chance, could you give me a call back and let me know what's going on with that blood work.
Dinah: You can't turn in Marina. She didn't do anything. She did not kill that John Doe. I did.
Bill: So how big a housewarming party are we talking about here, hmm?
Lizzie: I was thinking about the whole town.
Bill: The whole town?
Lizzie: They were involved in the wedding, so, you know, why not?
Bill: Well, because I am selfish, and I don't want to share the house with anyone-- except maybe our ten kids.
Bill: I will show you eww. Silly.
Alan: Did you do this?
Beth: I told you he was gifted.
James: You like it?
Alan: It's terrific, James. This is exactly what the company needs. I'm very proud of you, son.
We come from different places but we move together...
Alan: Ladies and gentlemen, if I could have your attention. I would be remiss if I didn't remind us all why we are here. Raise our glasses. To my beloved Phillip: May his memory live in our lives forever.
Alan: Ed Bauer? Hello:
Ed: Phillip, it's Ed.
Ed: Phillip, listen, we must have one of those crummy connections, so if you don't follow anything I'm saying, let me know, okay? Look, I got the results of those latest blood tests. There may not even be time to consider that experimental treatment we were talking about. I know you said you didn't want to go there anyway, but we're not giving up. We can make you comfortable. We will treat the symptoms as they present themselves, and try to get you as much time as possible.
Bill: Did we put central air on that list?
Lizzie: Yeah, both times.
Bill: Well, I think we're going need to put it on one more time. I feel like it's 110 degrees in this place. You're going to want a door knob...
Lizzie: Yeah. I think I'm going to need another one.
Bill: Oh, well, it's a project, baby, I admit it. But we knew that going in. But we've got our whole lives to make it perfect.
Lizzie: It doesn't have to be perfect.
Bill: But it's going to be. It's going to be. And this is where we're going to raise our family, our kids, Sarah.
Bill: Someday, I promise.
Lizzie: I love you.
Bill: And I love you. Now let's go plug in some of these fans, all right?
Lizzie: Seriously. You know, I thought planning a wedding was hard. I don't even know where to start with this.
Bill: That is easy. What is the one thing every newlywed couple needs?
Lizzie: I have no idea. What is that?
Bill: That's our bed.
Everyone says it's your heart not your head
that brings you where you need to be
and I know I've read but I'm feeling misled
and I don't know how much I believe...
Mallet: This is your wedding day. You shouldn't even be here.
Dinah: Marina didn't do anything. She did not kill that man. Neither did Jeffrey, neither did. I did it.
Mallet: No. Uh-uh.
Dinah: Yes, yes! I have been the one you have been looking for all along.
Mallet: Why are you saying all this?
Dinah: I don't know. I've been wanting to keep it a secret. Then I made a choice before the wedding, but...
Mallet: But what? But what?
Dinah: I'm sick of watching her suffer, Mallet. I'm sick of watching Marina suffer. And I couldn't do that to you and your family.
Mallet: Sorry, I don't yeah, no it's great. Sorry, I don't believe you. I think you're telling me all this because you don't want me to turn Marina in.
Dinah: I wish. I wish that was it.
Mallet: Just stop. You just need to stop, okay? First of all, we're in a public place and someone could hear us, so just stop.
Dinah: It's you and me.
Mallet: I don't want to hear it!
Dinah: It's just you and me.
Mallet: I don't want to hear it!
Dinah: It happened at the shopping center.
Mallet: Dinah, Dinah...
Dinah: Near the river park. I saw Marina holding Henry. He looked so beautiful, so happy, so content. I couldn't get my eyes off of them. Suddenly, something told me to turn around. It was Edmund-- or at last someone who looked like Edmund. He knew that Henry was his grandson, and he wanted him, and he said that he was going to go after Marina and that baby-- your baby, the baby that we have worked so hard to bring in to this country. I didn't know what to do. So, you know, Henry’s stroller was sitting right there, and I had to stop him. Marina had left it when she went into the park. I picked up the stroller, and I don't know, I don't know how I did it, but you can figure out the rest. After I got the body in the water, I just... I went home, you know. I went home to wash it all off. I didn't want anyone to pay for my mistakes. I thought I could just sit on it, I could wait it out. And then you decide it's Marina? You want to turn in your own wife? And I couldn't do that to you. I couldn't let you do it. If you're going to turn anybody in, it should be me. You turn me in.
Lizzie: Is it supposed to sound like that?
Lizzie: I said, is it supposed to sound like that?
Bill: Yeah, I'm almost done.
Lizzie: Good. My teeth are going to fall out. Is it done?
Bill: No, it's still soft. It's not really working well. I don't know if it's the plug or the outlet or...
Lizzie: That thing looks a little sketchy. Be careful.
Bill: Don't worry about that, baby, it's fine. I'm a trained professional. Yeah, look at ol' Bill Lewis go!
Beth: Oh, oh, I'm sorry.
Matt: Hey, that's all right. I'll live. But you may not if you wander out into the street like that.
Beth: Should've gotten the cart.
Matt: Where are you going with all that?
Beth: To Lizzie and Bill's new house-- or Lizzie and Bill's new old house.
Matt: Yeah, I know the house.
Beth: You've seen it, huh?
Matt: Yeah, yeah. It's got good bones, but it's going to need a little work.
Beth: Well, I am determined to help them whip it into shape.
Matt: Aren't you a little overly ambitious there?
Matt: Well, they don't even have running water there, and the laundry room is like... you don't want to go there.
Beth: Are you kidding me?
Matt: Nope. Oh!
Beth: Oh, oh, oh, oh!
Matt: I got it, I got it. I got it. Here, hang on. There you go. You just hold that, and I'll... I'll just take that. I'll get the rest. Are you okay? All right.
Ed: Oh, look, I hate talking about this on the phone. I mean, I know that you must get your hopes up every time we run another series of tests, but the time line remains the same.
Alan: Time line?
Ed: Well, the disease has progressed. I think it's time for you to maybe cut that road trip short. I think it's time for you to tell your family what's going on, make the best of the time that you've got left. Phillip, you okay?
Phillip: Hey, Dad. This is more than my easy button. So how did it go with Jerry's family?
Alan: It went all right. We met, and we talked a little.
Alan: I did the best that I could for now.
Phillip: You all right?
Alan: I don't know.
Phillip: Well, that's understandable. I'm proud of you, Dad. I'm really proud of you for taking this step with his family.
Alan: Let me ask you something, Phillip. What was your impetus for us taking this journey into the past?
Phillip: I told you, I want you to feel better. I know that this thing has been a source of, you know, pain and guilt for you for a long time, and I just think that maybe today will be the start of you finally getting over it.
Alan: And then you and I can have that perfect father-son relationship that you've always wanted, and we can make up for lost time?
Phillip: We can try.
Alan: How much time are we talking about?
Alan: While you were out, you got a phone call from Ed Bauer. He left you a message. Let me see if I can remember what he said: The diagnosis is the same, as is your time line. You're still dying.
Lizzie: I'm going to need another pad.
Bill: Okay. I just went down to the basement.
Bill: You're going to want to stay away from the place for a while. Not pretty.
Lizzie: What about electricity?
Bill: My expert opinion?
Bill: We've got to call in an electrician.
Lizzie: I can handle no TV. I can handle no lights. But no air conditioning and no fan in August is too much. We need to go to a hotel.
Bill: Wait a minute. Are you giving up on me? I mean, you're going to give up just like that?
Lizzie: We can stay somewhere while we just do some of the work. We'll be nice and cool. Cool-- wouldn't that be nice?
Bill: I have an idea.
Lizzie: What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing?
Bill: I will cool you off, okay? Feel better?
Lizzie: Uh-huh. Yeah.
Mallet: I'm done. This is done.
Mallet: This conversation is over. This conversation, we're never going to have it again, okay? It's over, done.
Dinah: What are you talking about? Have you not been hearing anything? I'm telling you, I...
Mallet: Oh, I heard you, I heard you. I heard you loud and clear. And now I'm making a choice to bury it.
Dinah: You're going to pretend like you don't know anything-- anything I just told you?
Mallet: Yeah. You know what? Everybody's been telling me from day one just to let it go, just to let it go. And you know what? They're right. They're right. If I allow it to, this case will just die on the vine. The number one prime suspect, Jeffrey O’Neill, he's deceased.
Dinah: You're going to let everybody believe that, that it's Jeffrey?
Mallet: It doesn't matter! It doesn't matter. People are going to believe whatever they want to believe. Edmund did it, Edmund set it up, Edmund didn't set it up-- doesn't matter.
Dinah: Okay, you're not thinking straight. Okay, I can't believe what you're saying. You were ready to turn in your own wife, but when it comes to me, you're just going to let me go? That's it? Just like that, like it didn't happen?
Mallet: You just got married today. Go be with your husband. Have a great life.
We all know a little bit
of underarm stubble...
Shayne: So how are we doing?
Mallet: You two are doing great. You're doing great. And I want to say again how happy I am for the both of you.
Mallet: Congratulations, and I count on you that you'll take good care of the bride.
Shayne: Same to you.
Mallet: Get going, you two. You've got a lot of celebrating to do.
Dinah: Thanks, Mallet.
Mallet: Yeah. Yeah, anytime.
Shayne: Are we ready?
Dinah: Yeah, we're ready.
Matt: I thought you said they were supposed to be here?
Beth: Well, I thought that they were. I saw their car.
Matt: Are you trying to take advantage of me?
Beth: No, I'm not trying to take advantage of you. Maybe they're out back.
Lizzie: We were hot.
Lizzie: We were hot because the power went out because of the bed, because... well, we couldn't sleep on the floor, because that would be a nightmare, so, just, without the power, it's like 90 degrees. So Bill was cooling me down, and...
Bill: Ah, Lizzie, no.
Lizzie: Yeah. Hi.
Bill: Hey. What are you guys doing here?
Beth: I came with some supplies for your house. They're in the car.
Matt: And I come to offer my contracting skills. It looks like maybe you could use one, you know.
Bill: Could you just give us a second, because I'm just going to...
Lizzie: One sec.
Matt: Yeah, take your time.
Beth: Yeah, please, please.
Bill: Oh, Matt?
Matt: Yeah, pal?
Bill: As long as you're here, do you think maybe you can get the power up and running?
Phillip: Why are you answering my phone?
Alan: That's not the question here. What is wrong with you, Phillip?
Phillip: Okay, look, Ed probably made it sound a lot worse.
Alan: Ed thought I was you. He was very blunt, so there's no denying this.
Phillip: Okay. I'm sick.
Alan: How long have you known this?
Phillip: For a while. I got an infection while I was away, and, you know, it was dormant. And now it isn’t.
Alan: Listen, he said something about a time line. What is that about?
Phillip: I'm dying, Dad. The infection is progressive, and there isn't any cure.
Alan: There has to be a cure!
Phillip: There isn't, believe me. We've been looking.
Alan: How much time are we talking about, Phillip?
Phillip: It's anybody's guess. Doctors don't really like...
Alan: How much time!?
Phillip: Months, maybe less. Now you understand the urgency why I wanted to make things right with James, and with you.
Alan: Get away from me, son.
Alan: Do you realize, do you realize how selfish you have been? How many lies you have told me?
Phillip: I wasn't ready for you to know.
Alan: You weren't ready for me to know? Who cares what you're ready for? You've taken me on this trip. You made me believe that we were... you know what this trip is about? It's about you checking off things in your life before you die.
Phillip: That is not...
Alan: Yes, it is. The baseball game, Gerald’s family -- it's all lies.
Alan: None of it was real!
Marina: Just leave it.
Mallet: I can’t.
Marina: Did you get what you wanted?
Marina: At the police station, did you get the warrant for my arrest?
Mallet: No, that's not going to happen.
Marina: Oh. So you're just going to send me off to Ravenworth, huh, just to get a little evaluation? That's all right. You know, I actually could use some time off. Been a little stressed out.
Mallet: I want to tell you something, and I need you to hear it.
Marina: What now?
Mallet: I'm sorry for doubting you. It was... it was wrong.
Mallet: I'm your husband, and I should have believed in you more, despite the evidence. That was a huge mistake. This case turned me into something I don't recognize and I don't like, and I took it out on you. And I want to make it up to you. I promise to do that. I'm so sorry.
Marina: You mean that?
Mallet: Yes, I do. I mean that.
Marina: You know, when we were investigating the case, every time I thought something would change and get better, it just seemed to get worse and worse, until I just didn't know what to do anymore.
Mallet: We can work it out, if that's something you want to do.
Marina: Yeah, I'd like to try. I love you. And you know how much I love Henry, and I would like us to be together to raise our son. So what changed your mind? Dinah?
Marina: Yeah, seeing Shayne and Dinah get married made me think about our wedding day, our marriage.
Mallet: Yeah, I think maybe that was it.
Shayne: You okay?
Dinah: Yeah. Why?
Shayne: You've been quiet since we left.
Dinah: Just thinking. Just thinking, an emotional day.
Shayne: It's not a bad thing, right?
Dinah: No. I just want to live in the moment, be here with you on our wedding night.
Shayne: Where else would you be?
Dinah: Nowhere, nowhere.
Shayne: You know, when you met me in Europe, I couldn't walk, right? But now, now I'm a whole man again, in every meaning of the word. So I'm going to carry my bride through the threshold. I never thought I would have a heart attack.
Matt: Hey, sorry about the timing.
Bill: Oh, well, no. It could've been worse. So are you sure you want to take on this house project?
Matt: Yeah, why not? I need a fun project. All right. Well, listen, I'll start to work on the plans, and in the meantime, you might want to think about moving out.
Bill: No can do.
Matt: It's going to be messy.
Bill: I know. But I promised Lizzie that this is the place where we are going to live. I'm going to keep that promise. And by the way, I want to do some of the work myself, okay, with my own hands.
Matt: You sure about that?
Bill: No doubt. It's going to be fun.
Beth: This is going to be a beautiful home for you and your new family.
Lizzie: I think so, too. Have you heard from Dad?
Beth: Well, you know, he doesn't check in with me.
Lizzie: Are you playing hard to get?
Lizzie: No, he loves you. He loves you, Mom. Life is short.
Beth: And I'm sure he has made it very clear that he has no intention of spending that life with me, and that's fine. I have a life.
Lizzie: Okay. So you haven't heard anything?
Beth: He called the house once from stop one on the magical mystery tour, told Alex that he and Alan were at a minor league baseball park having cracker jacks.
Lizzie: I know you're speaking English, but I don't understand the words.
Beth: I guess we'll learn all about it when your father gets home.
Phillip: Dad, stop! Dad!
Alan: I don't want to hear anything else that you have to say, Phillip.
Phillip: What does it really matter that I'm sick?
Alan: You're asking your father that question?
Phillip: So I'm dying. We're all dying. Right? You could walk across the street and get hit by a bus. Life is short. That's the way it goes.
Alan: What do you want from me, Phillip?
Phillip: I want you to finish what we came here to do. I want you to face this thing in your past. I want you to close this wound that has been gaping in you for 40 years. Maybe it'll change you. Maybe it'll change everything.
Alan: You really believe that?
Phillip: I do. I think that we have a chance to break this cycle in our family, this thing had has been going on for generations-- father against son, again and again.
Alan: I think it's a load of crap. You're not here to save me or to help James or anybody.
Phillip: What do you think I'm doing it for?
Alan: It's all about you, Phillip. You're trying to save yourself and feel better about yourself before you die.
Phillip: Oh, Dad...
Alan: Yes, listen to me. You're playing the hero again. You're going to save the family until your dying breath.
Phillip: Yeah, there is so much left to do.
Alan: Well, it'll just have to stay that way, because I'm finished with you, and I'm finished with this trip.
Phillip: Dad, listen. Let's just finish what we came here to do.
Alan: No, you don't get to do that, Phillip. You don't get to fix your father and then die on me. It's a little late to become my son after 40 years, because we're finished! I'll get my own ride home.
Shayne: To the happiest day of our lives. What's wrong?
Dinah: I'm just afraid.
Shayne: Okay. What are you afraid of?
Dinah: That I just am not everything that you think I am. I don't want to let you down. I don't want to fail you.
Shayne: I'm not worried about any of that.
Dinah: Why not? Everybody else is.
Shayne: Because I'm smarter than everybody else.
Dinah: Everything you said to me today at our wedding meant so much to me. To have your family take me in the way they did, it's just amazing.
Shayne: You're part of my family now. You're one of us. Are you ready for that?
Dinah: You know, I've always dreamt of that for myself.
Shayne: Baby, we're going to have an amazing life together. You know that, don't you?
Dinah: Yeah, yeah.
Shayne: Yeah, yeah. Wow, you can do so much better than that, okay? Dinah, darling, baby, we're going to have a surprising, exciting life together. Yeah, we're going to still be grounded and stable. We're going to travel a lot, a lot of traveling. We're going to help people. Yeah, we're going to be homebodies. We're going to climb a mountain, and we're going to take Henry to the zoo. Do you see where I'm going with this?
Dinah: Yes, yes.
Shayne: Okay, good.
Dinah: And I believe every word that you say, I do. I believe that we are going to have a happy, long life together.
Shayne: We are.
I reach for you, baby you know I do.
(Knocking on door)
Frank: Is this a bad time?
Marina: Hey, Dad.
Mallet: Hey, what's up, Frank?
Marina: Everything okay?
Frank: Yeah, no, everyone's fine. I just need to have a little conversation with Mallet here, police stuff.
Marina: Yeah. Yeah, I'll go for a walk.
Mallet: What's up, Frank?
Frank: A little while ago, I was on my way into the station, and I overheard a conversation, a conversation I don't think I was meant to hear. I heard Dinah confessing to you that she's the one who killed the John Doe.
Bill: Oh, baby, let me tell you something. When it's done-- spectacular.
Lizzie: It's going to take a really long time. Are you sure about staying here?
Bill: Yeah. Are you?
Lizzie: I am if you are.
Bill: Yeah. I mean, we just have to think of it as one big adventure.
Lizzie: Right. (Water trickling) Do you hear running water?
Bill: Yeah, I'm sure it's nothing. But I'll... stay, I'll check it out. Okay, a little leak coming through the ceiling underneath where the where the tub is.
Lizzie: How little is a little?
Bill: Maybe we need some towels and some buckets, you know, nothing we can't handle I'm sure. You know what I am going to do? Call Matt.
Lizzie: Good idea.
Charlie: Hey, nice to see you again.
Alan: No, Charlie, my son and I are heading home.
Charlie: Thanks for telling me about my dad. I don't know much. Every word means a lot. He would have loved this place. He would have loved to come meet here.
Alan: I want you to know I am really sorry about your loss, Charlie.
Charlie: I never knew him, but I couldn't be prouder of him.
Frank: Okay, so here's the deal. Were you ever going to turn Dinah in or were you going to bury it and let Jeffrey take the blame?
Mallet: Frank, now's not the time to deal with it.
Frank: No, the time to talk about it was the time Dinah said something to you.
Mallet: Frank, she just told me okay? I just found out. Alright? Come on, it's Dinah. Don't you think I'd check out the story first? Anyway she just got married, you know? I figured I would give her a break until tomorrow.
Frank: Tomorrow? Well, here is the plan. You are going to arrest her tomorrow.
Mallet: Yeah, yeah, that's the plan.
Frank: Yeah, you are. You know why? Because she's a flight risk. Handle this.
Mallet: I'm handling it, Frank!
Shayne: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. We've got to get these babies refitted so you don't lose them. Let me hold on to them. Get it done tomorrow?
Dinah: Yeah, yeah, that's okay.
Shayne: You sure?
Shayne: Alright, come here. Just two seconds, okay.
Dinah: Okay. Be right back.
Mallet: Dinah, it's me. We got a problem.
Mallet: Frank overheard us in the parking lot and he knows that you are the killer.
Dinah: Oh my God.
Mallet: Yeah, I didn't know he was there. And we've got a problem.
Dinah: I have to go. Oh my God.
Shayne: Hey, hey... come here, you. Now where were we?
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Mallet: We can fix this. You okay?
Josh: Only been a couple days since Jeffrey’s funeral.
Reva: Today was a good day for me.
Dinah: I don't want to go away on an exotic honeymoon. I want to go away because I have to.
Mallet: I was just on my way to find you.
Dinah: I'm here now.
Dinah: I'd like you to cuff me.
