James: I want to be a good man.
Alan: I could be the man to help you become great.
Shayne: I loved her. Why did she do this to me?
Mallet: I don't know Shayne. She was protecting the kids.
Josh: I am afraid that one day you're going to need me to save you, and I'm not going to be able to do it.
Jeffrey: Edmund, don't move! You're under arrest! (Gunshots) I need someone to check on Reva and my son.
Shayne: Sorry, I didn't know anyone was here right now.
Beth: Oh, gosh, no. You know what? I don't need to be here, if you need...
Shayne: No, no, no, no, you're fine. You're fine. I just... I just have to sign some paperwork. Lawyer said he couldn't get to it for a couple of days, so I'm going to do it myself. Lawyers, always making things more complicated.
Beth: I'm studying to be a lawyer.
Shayne: Sorry. No, sorry. I...
Beth: What kind of papers?
Shayne: Annulment papers.
Beth: That's not good.
Shayne: Better than being married to somebody who's not here, right? And if I sign this, it will erase the whole thing.
Beth: Legally, but will you feel like it never happened?
Alan: I thought you'd be ready to go by now.
James: Go where?
Alan: To the office. We're a team, remember?
James: Well, if we're a team, then we can make a plan together.
Alan: Okay, fine, fine. You want to start with contracts or budgets?
James: No, no, it's a nice day out. I'm going to go outside.
Alan: Outside. What about the office?
James: How about this? I'll come to the office with you. And then you come to the park with me. A little work, a little Frisbee.
Alan: Frisbee? I don't think that that's going to work.
James: Team. There's no "I" in team, Granddad.
Alan: Team, huh? Okay, I will... are you telling me that you're going to come to the office?
James: If you're coming to the park.
Alan: All right, I'll be there.
James: All right, we'll start with contracts.
Alan: Excellent. Let's go.
Phillip: I brought you back something from my trip. I thought about a sombrero, but I didn't think you'd wear it.
Ed: Phillip, in order for us to try to keep you alive as long as possible, you need to be monitored. You need to stick to your treatment schedule. What were you thinking?
Phillip: Obviously, I wasn’t. I panicked. I wanted there to get different answers than the ones you were giving me. I didn't want to hear, "No, it's not possible." I... I wanted there to be answers.
Ed: We all want there to be answers. And believe me we are trying, but you... you got to stick around.
Phillip: I know. I know. And I'm here, and I'm not going anywhere. I came back to get my affairs in order, and I know it's time to tell my family that I'm dying.
Marina: Hey, Reva? It's Marina.
Marina: Hey, I'm sorry to call you so early. It's just Lillian got called in to work this morning earlier than she had thought she would. So she dropped Colin off with me.
Reva: Oh, I'm... I'm sorry.
Marina: Oh, no, no, no, that's not a problem at all. I, actually, was just calling to see if you guys wanted to join us later on. I was thinking I was going to take Henry over to the petting zoo.
Reva: No, actually, thanks for the offer, but I have stuff to do here today, stuff around the house.
Marina: All right. Well, I'm just heading out of the house now. Do you want me to stop by and drop him off now?
Reva: That would be great.
Marina: Okay. I'll see you soon. Hey.
Marina: What are you guys doing up there?
Mallet: We're going to do the slide.
Mallet: Yeah, yeah, we were going to do the slide. You want to catch him?
Marina: Sure. Wiieeeee! There you go.
Mallet: You guys look good together. It just looks right.
Marina: Well, thank you. Well, I'm sorry to break up the fun, but we are going to the petting zoo later, right? Want to say bye-bye to Daddy, huh? Say, bye-bye. (Laughs) Bye-bye. See ya.
Daisy: Oh, hi. The usual?
Josh: Yes, please. I'm a creature of habit.
Daisy: Oh, don't worry about it. All old people are.
Josh: Well, actually I have no argument for that. By the way, have you seen your Grandma Reva lately?
Daisy: Have you seen her lately?
Josh: Yeah, yeah, a couple of times.
Daisy: Okay, yeah. Just I... I went by the house, and she wasn't home. Did you see her at the house or...
Josh: No, I just saw her around town. Why do you ask?
Daisy: Nothing. Just, she wasn't there, so I guess I'll try again later.
Josh: Okay. Call first. You know, I think she needs a little space these days.
Daisy: Yeah, that's an excellent idea.
Josh: So how's everything else going for you?
Daisy: Like what? I'm here all the time.
Josh: Well, that's not right. It's summertime. You should be hanging out with your friends.
Daisy: Yeah, well, all my friends are busy, too. I guess life is just a little bit more complicated than back when you were a kid, way back when.
Ed: You know, I think you're making the right decision. I mean, if there's anything we can do to help around here, you know, if you want to call people in and tell them in the hospital. If you want a grief counselor standing by, you want me there when you tell them, either way.
Phillip: Are you talking about today?
Ed: Well, that's what you meant, isn't it?
Phillip: No, no. I mean, I know they have to know, but I don't want to do it today.
Ed: Well, then so what are you waiting for?
Phillip: I'm not going to die tomorrow, right?
Ed: Phillip, any of us could die at any time.
Phillip: Ed, I know that. And I'm not asking for any guarantees, but you don't have any reason to think that my body is going to shut down tomorrow, right?
Ed: Well, I don't know, do I? Because I haven't been allowed to run any test because you took off from... my best guess would be that you still have a few weeks.
Phillip: Okay. Then you run the tests. I'll be a cooperative patient.
Ed: That's nice.
Phillip: Well, no, Ed, I just need a little bit of time with the people that I love, okay?
Phillip: I'm not talking about a lot. I'm talking about a day or two, and just the kids and Rick and Beth, all right? Seriously. A couple of days, and then I'll tell them, all right? You can get the grief counselor in, get out the tissues and the violins, the whole enchilada.
Ed: You're not an easy patient, you know that, don't you?
Phillip: Well, you're my doctor, and I'm dying. So what does that say about you?
Ed: Not a whole hell of a lot, buddy.
Beth: Josh, hi.
Josh: Hi, Beth. Wow, look at you.
Josh: A student. When am I going to be able to put you on retainer?
Beth: Soon, I hope.
Josh: Good for you.
Beth: I just saw Shayne at the courthouse.
Josh: I hope he wasn't in handcuffs.
Beth: No, no, nothing like that. He was filling out papers for his annulment.
Josh: Good. Well, I...
Beth: No, no, no, I... I understand. It's just... just feel bad for him, you know? You fall in love with someone and you have an expectation about how things are going to be, and then it doesn't happen, you know?
Josh: Yeah, I just want him to get on with his life as quickly as possible, that's all.
Beth: He is certainly lucky to have such a wonderful family around him, you and Reva.
Josh: Actually, Reva has got a lot on her plate right now. I don't know that she can really help him. I'm not sure she can handle a whole lot more.
Reva: Okay, guys, this was just between us, right? No one needs to know. Oh, oh, no. Hey, sweetie. How are... I'm so glad to see you.
Daisy: Oh, okay, good. I'm glad you said that because I wasn't sure if this was going to be a good time.
Reva: You can drop by here any time you want.
Daisy: Okay, actually, Ashlee and I did come by yesterday. You weren't here.
Reva: Oh. Yeah, I'm... I'm sorry I missed you. I was in and out all day.
Daisy: You look good. How are you feeling?
Reva: I'm fine, really, you know. Nothing that a little gardening won't help, you know? I was actually thinking of taking Colin to the petting zoo, a little later, with Marina.
Daisy: Oh, fun.
Daisy: Yeah. Everything's fine?
Reva: Fine and dandy. Fine and dandy.
Daisy: I saw them.
Reva: Saw what?
Daisy: I... when Ashlee and I stopped by, the door was open and I was worried and... yeah, we went inside, and I saw all the pictures.
Reva: Oh, that was...
Daisy: Yeah, you know what? You don't even have to explain. I don't want you to explain. I just... I need to check. I need to know that you're okay.
Reva: I'm okay.
Reva: I'm okay. Or I will be.
Daisy: Okay. You're good.
Reva: Yes, I'm good. Good.
Daisy: Okay. I have to go.
Reva: Okay. Daisy, you and Ashlee, you didn't say anything to anybody about the pictures?
Daisy: No, no. I mean, not yet. If you start acting weird, I'll have to say something, okay?
Reva: Fair enough.
Ed: Okay, I'll call you with the results of the blood work as soon as it comes in, but I can tell you right now that the B.W.D. has progressed.
Phillip: Not surprised. I'm feeling a little ragged when I came back.
Ed: Yeah, you're probably going to start experiencing a certain shortness of breath pretty soon, too.
Phillip: You're just a ray of sunshine.
Ed: I'll call you with the results.
Phillip: Okay, thanks.
Beth: Oh, hey, guys.
Ed: Hi, sweetie, how are you?
Beth: Good. Good to see you. When did you get back?
Phillip: Just... just got back.
Beth: How did it go?
Phillip: Good. Yeah, I think I've got a few things figured out.
Beth: Anything having to do with your son because right now he thinks you're a jackass.
Phillip: That’s... you know, I'm going to spend some time with him. Actually, I'd like to spend some time with everybody.
Beth: Yeah, I think that’s... that's great. That's great for the kids. I mean, not... I'm really busy right now, so I don't think that will work.
Phillip: Well, it's okay. I mean, I'm flexible.
Beth: I have to go find my mother and see if she has time for lunch. It's good seeing you, Ed.
Ed: Hope it works out with the one on one.
Alan: So I think that's all you need to know, at this point, about contracts.
James: That's it?
Alan: Well, for now. I'll teach you more in time. So what do you want to do next?
Alan: Budgets, huh? You want to jump right in.
James: Bring it on. I'm here to work with you.
Alan: You're here to work with me, huh? Well, that's kind of a unique trait for a Spaulding.
Alan: Yeah, usually I get the sense that they're trying to take over the company or they want to fight with me.
James: Not me. I don't like fighting. I want my life to be fun.
Alan: Well, you are going to have a lot of fun in your life. But, of course, there is more to life than just fun, James.
James: Why? Why do you guys all have to make it so complicated?
Shayne: Bad time?
Marina: No, it's snack time. You want apple sauce or bananas.
Shayne: Trying to quit, thanks. So I came over to tell you I've been thinking a lot about what you said. And you're right. I want to be a good example for Henry. I mean, I'm a mess right now, and I know that. But that's no excuse. I have a kid. And I want him to have... to have a dad that can be proud of.
Marina: Good. I'm glad you're feeling better.
Shayne: I filed for an annulment today. I'm not saying that this whole mess with Dinah is just going to get up and go away, but it's a start, you know? I'm on my way.
Marina: Don't tell me that. Tell him. Hey, bud, look who's here.
Shayne: Hey there, handsome. How you doing? Little buddy, I want you to know I'm going to be there for you. Yeah, you. Whatever you need. Whatever you need. Where did you get that?
Marina: Oh, Dinah gave that to Henry.
(Music box plays)
Shayne: Do you hear that? Do you hear that? It's beautiful, isn't it, buddy? A very special lady gave that to you. She knew that you belonged here. She's the one that brought you to be with your mommy. Yes, she is.
Phillip: Hey, Daisy, how are you today?
Daisy: I'm good. What can I get for you?
Phillip: You haven't seen James today, have you?
Daisy: I never know how to answer that.
Phillip: It's a simple question.
Daisy: No, it's not. Not coming from one of you. Because I don't know if you're actually just looking for James, or if you want me to manipulate him, or you want him to manipulate someone else, or maybe you're just trying to get him thrown in jail.
Phillip: That's true. In my family, it could be any of those things.
Daisy: Exactly. You want some coffee, I can get you coffee.
Phillip: No, no, no, that's okay.
Reva: You guys are going to have to go to the basement. Okay. Okay, you can stay. (Screams)
Jonathan: (Screams) (screaming) (laughter)
they make little
Reva: What are you doing here?
Jonathan: I came to check up on you.
Reva: Oh, oh.
Jonathan: From the looks of it, not a moment too soon.
Reva: Oh, this is nothing.
Jonathan: What is that supposed to mean?
Reva: It means, I'm barely holding on, which is why I'm so glad you're here. Oh, where's Sarah?
Jonathan: I couldn't bring her, it's not safe. And I can't have anyone else know I'm here.
Reva: But the family. And Lizzie.
Jonathan: No one. I'm just here to check up on my mama. (Laughter)
Marina: Hey. I thought that you were at work?
Mallet: Yeah, I... I forgot my phone.
Marina: Oh. Shayne just stopped by to say hi.
Shayne: No, actually I stopped by to talk to you. I need to thank you. I've been going through a lot and it's no excuse. You really cut me a lot of slack yesterday, and I really appreciate it. Thank you.
Mallet: Sure, yeah, no problem. Good, I found my phone, got no messages. And so I guess I'll head back to the station. You know Frank, he's a stickler for punctuality.
Marina: Yep, that's my dad.
Mallet: Are you still planning on going to the petting zoo later?
Marina: Yeah, yeah, we are, this afternoon.
Mallet: Oh, okay, yeah. I might... I don't know, maybe I'll get off work early, or something, and try to meet you there.
Marina: Well, that would be great, huh? I'm glad that you're doing better.
Shayne: I almost forgot, here. I got him something. I hope it's okay.
Shayne: It's a bear cub.
Marina: What's that? Oh, it's very cute.
Shayne: Yeah? I had one of these when I was growing up, and I loved it. Hey, buddy, what do you say?
Marina: Can you say thank you?
Shayne: It's as big as you are, I know. But...
Marina: You like it?
Shayne: All right. All right.
Marina: Thank you.
Shayne: All right, buddy.
Ed: Got a sec?
Alan: I'll talk with you later, all right? Ed, I'm very busy at the moment.
Ed: This won't take long. Phillip is planning on talking to the family about his illness.
Alan: Well, it's about time. When is he planning on doing this.
Ed: Soon. And when he does, you should be there. Because they're not going to be prepared for what they're going to hear. They're not going to know what hit them.
Alan: They will deal with it the way we Spaulding’s deal with everything, with strength and dignity, Ed.
Ed: That's fine. But they're also going to be in shock. And they're not going to be able to do what you do, which is pretend that it doesn't matter.
Alan: Of course it matters, Ed. But there's nothing I can do about it. We will rally, support each other, and then we will move on.
Ed: That's good. You do that. But you be there.
James: Okay. You stalking me?
Phillip: What are your plans for the rest of the day?
James: I'm meeting Granddad at the park. A little Frisbee.
James: I'm not kidding.
Phillip: Okay. Would you rather go to the driving range with me?
James: Granddad booked me first.
Phillip: Blow him off. You can do that with him any time.
James: Not today. I'm actually pretty busy. Maybe some other time?
Phillip: Might not be able to do it some other time.
James: Driving range is open until, like, November. We'll go over Thanksgiving, before we go to that big dinner Bill and Lizzie have already been planning.
Phillip: Pretty excited about that, aren't they?
James: It's a holiday. Family time. I got to go. Can't keep Granddad waiting.
Phillip: No, no.
Phillip: Quite an outfit.
Alan: Yes, well I'm off to spend a little time with James.
Phillip: So I hear. Would you do me a favor, please? Tell him that you can't make it.
Alan: Why would I do that?
Phillip: Because I need to spend some time with him, and I can't if he is spending the day with you.
Alan: He asked me, so I'm going to spend some time with him.
Phillip: Dad, I'm not going to be here that much longer. I really need to spend the time with him.
Alan: You know something, Phillip? You should have thought about that before you went gallivanting off to Mexico.
Ed: It's very impressive. Very impressive.
Beth: I haven't graduated yet.
Ed: Yeah, but you will. Must be really time-consuming though, huh?
Beth: Yes. But it's good. It's good. I am finally at a point that I'm strong enough to stand on my own two feet, and I don't need a man to take care of me.
Ed: Well, it must be a little bit like medicine though, huh? It could take over your life.
Beth: Oh, I hope so. I... I need something just for me.
Ed: Well, that's great. I mean, as long as you don't forget about the people around you that are important, too.
Beth: Oh, please. Lizzie and James are happy that I have something else to worry about, and besides Peyton, nobody else really needs me.
Daisy: Hey. I'm open. So how come you asked Alan to play Frisbee and not me?
James: Didn't really have a choice, we were going to spend the day together. It was either this or all day at the office.
Daisy: Okay. I was a little freaked out when you said you were going to be spending more time with your grandpa, but I saw him earlier and he seems really happy. So, I guess you're doing a good thing.
James: What do I get for it?
Daisy: I don't know. What do you want?
Marina: This is going to be so much fun at the petting zoo. Yes, it is. They have piggies, and they have cowsies, and they have llamas. We just have to make sure they don't spit on us.
Mallet: Yeah, you got to watch out with those spitting llamas.
Marina: I didn't know if you were going it to be able to make it.
Mallet: Yeah, quiet day. So they will call me if anything crazy happens.
Marina: Well good, I'm glad. You know, I just packed some snacks. I could run back in the house and make some sandwiches.
Mallet: Oh, no, no, let's just keep it simple. You know, we'll get a hot dog or something.
Marina: Sounds good to me. All right. You know, I think the park is less than a mile away, so I thought we would walk.
Mallet: Yeah, a walk would be good, yeah. Come on, Henry.
Mallet: What's this bear? You got a new bear?
Marina: Yeah, Shayne gave it to him. I don't know. He likes it.
Josh: I ran into Beth earlier. She told me you were here filing for your...
Shayne: Annulment. Never been married. I signed that paper this morning. I bring it in here. I hand it to someone. He hands it back to me, and that's it? That's it. I feel like there should have been a ceremony or something.
Josh: Maybe you need to talk to people about it. You know, maybe it will make it more real for you.
Shayne: Yeah, maybe.
Josh: Tell your mom. No, tell her. For her, it might be good news. Might help her. I don't know. But don't tell her that you didn't use the lawyer, okay? He was a friend of Jeffrey’s.
Reva: Look who's here, Colin. Look who's here. This is the guy I've told you so many stories about.
Jonathan: Be careful. I'll tell him a lot of stories about you.
Reva: Do you want to hold him?
Reva: Go fly!
Jonathan: I forgot how little they are. Sarah's almost four.
Reva: Do you have pictures of her?
Jonathan: I have one or two. I don't really take that many.
Reva: Well, I'll trade you then. I'll get his baby book, and you can show me whatever pictures you have of Sarah.
Jonathan: Don't rush. Colin and I have some bonding to do.
Reva: Oh, I bet.
Jonathan: You're adorable. Okay, buddy, phone call time. Hey, it's me.
Jeffrey: What are you doing? Why are you calling?
Jonathan: Well, I'm holding your kid. He's pretty cute, but then again, of course, he is my brother.
Jeffrey: How is Reva?
Jonathan: You know, like you'd expect. It's tough, but she's hanging in there. She's Reva.
Jeffrey: Any sign of Edmund?
Jonathan: Not yet. I'll call you.
Jeffrey: No, I'm going to have to call. I got to dump this phone.
Jonathan: Okay. She's coming back.
Reva: Right after he was born. That was right after you were born, right?
Reva: Oh, and this is Jeffrey. It's the day he came... to the hospital to take him home. I couldn't go home yet. I had to stay in the hospital because I got sick again. But it was okay, you know, because Jeffrey had set up a webcam so that I could see him every day. I could see Colin every day, right? Yes, I could. Look at this outfit. How cute does he look in that?
Jonathan: Oh, yeah.
Reva: Huh? Actually, Jeffrey got him that outfit. New York Jets jersey. Yeah, baby, yeah.
Jonathan: All right, all right.
Reva: Daddy loves his New York teams, huh? Yeah. Colin's going to love the New York teams, too, right? Yes, you are. Yes, you are. You miss your daddy though, don't you?
Alan: You know, this is a very good stress buster after a long day in the office.
James: Yeah, it's fun.
Alan: Yeah. Speaking of office, well, how did you like your first day, huh?
James: Wasn't that bad.
Alan: Yeah, yeah. I noticed you have a real gift for numbers. I think that coupled with your personality is going to take you far. That is, unless, you let someone or something get in your way.
James: There's nothing in my life to get in the way, Granddad.
Alan: I'm glad to hear that.
Beth: So? What are you doing here? Oh, who would have guessed? Is this your idea?
Phillip: No, I think it was James.
Beth: He's growing up so fast. This give you hope? You two can work it out. It's just going to take a little time.
Marina: Henry is out. He loved the pigs. It's true, I never knew that pigs really do eat anything. This is really great. Today, you being able to be there and everything. Glad you got the time off.
Mallet: Yeah, nobody called. So I can stay.
Marina: That's great. Good.
Mallet: It's good.
Marina: I've got... I've got some pork chops for dinner if you'd like, or...
Mallet: Pork chops would be great.
Marina: You know what? You could throw some hamburgers on the grill.
Mallet: Yeah. Yeah, you know what? I'll throw some hamburgers on the grill and you can make a salad, and we'll keep it simple.
Marina: Good. Simple is good. This is good. Simple, uncomplicated. This is how things are supposed to be, right?
Mallet: Yeah. Yeah, I think this is the way things are supposed to be.
Josh: Bourbon and branch. Make it a double, please.
Ed: That's a serious drink. I remember those.
Josh: Hi, there.
Ed: Weight of the world?
Ed: Some things never change.
Josh: Yeah, yeah. Thank you. I'm just a little worried about her, that's all. She... she's going through a tough time.
Ed: Well, look, at least she's got people around her who love her, want to take care of her. Especially you.
Josh: Especially me, yes. Cheers.
Reva: And then the deer ate all the cupcakes, so there was no food at all. But it didn't stop Jeffrey. He moved the whole celebration to the weenie wagon.
Jonathan: You got married at the weenie wagon? (Laughs)
Reva: It wasn't bad. It was great. It was great, actually. It was!
Jonathan: All right.
Reva: Because that's how we lived our lives, you know? It was, "What the hell?" You know, we used to say that all the time. "What the hell?" I have pictures. I have a whole slew of wedding pictures.
Jonathan: All right. Bring them out.
Through shadows of tall buildings
until I slowly disappear
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Olivia: "I hope these flowers are as beautiful as you are. Love, Natalia."
Vanessa: I don't need to be nervous about a date with Billy, but I guess we all have somebody like that in our lives.
Shayne: I just think it's great timing. Two years, and after all the Edmund hysteria passes, you just happen to wander back into town. Edmund has people out there trying to hurt her. I don't know who's working with him.
Buzz: What the hell do they want me to find?
Buzz: Jenna, Coop.
