Vanessa: Well, this is kind of a nice idea of mine, isn't it, this dating?
Billy: This dating is really only fun.
Phillip: You're my best friend. You always have been, you always will be. You do know that.
Rick: Yeah, I do.
Marina: This is Henryís biological father.
Nurse: You can come in and help us fill out the family history questionnaire.
Phillip: Oh, not yet, old man. Still got a few loose ends to tie up. Just came up to sit and think for a minute. I'm starting to like it up here. I had a great day yesterday. I had a great day with Emma. And with Rick, my best friend. True friend. Today, it's James and Lizzie, and Beth. If I can squeeze all that into one day. So what am I doing sitting here talking to you? Oh, boy, okay, wish me luck.
Bill: You know, I was just telling Lizzie how happy I am to see my parents together again like this.
Lizzie: And I'm glad to see that are you still speaking to him after the wedding fiasco.
Billy: I told you not to bring that up.
Lizzie: I would like you to know that I tried. I did. And it is completely impossible to reason with a Lewis man.
Bill: Wait a minute.
Vanessa: You are forgiven. I know, what you say is true. But it's all right, it's okay. We talked about it. We worked it out. And I am officially being courted.
Billy: How am I doing so far?
Bill: That a boy, Dad. (Laughter)
Reva: Can you stay and watch him?
Jonathan: I'm superdad.
Reva: He wants to go to sleep. I'm just going to run to the mini-mart.
Reva: Are you sure? Because if you are not sure...
Jonathan: Beat it. Beat it.
Reva: Okay. Bye bye, baby.
Jonathan: And bring me back a six pack. Don't come home without it. I have been drinking through a straw for a week. (Door closes) (cell phone rings) Perfect timing. Hey.
Jeffrey: How's Reva?
Jonathan: She's a little better. How are things on the Edmund front?
Jonathan: Well, hurry up and kill the guy because you have a son here who needs his daddy. And I have a daughter.
Jeffrey: I'm working on it.
One step forward three steps again
watch myself fall to my knees soon as I think
I figured it out I realize I don't know a thing
I really don't know a thing.
Mallet: I can't do this any more.
Marina: Can't do what?
Mallet: Be a part of this family.
Marina: No, come on, come on, don't do this. Leaving is not the answer.
Mallet: Well, it just might be the answer.
Marina: You have worked so hard.
Mallet: Marina, you and I both know that what we've been fighting for, what we've been trying to stay together for, maybe is just never really going to be.
Marina: No, no, we are a family. Okay, you and me and Henry, we are a family. And families are worth saving. And sometimes they take a little sacrifice.
Mallet: Yes, yes, you are right. They are worth saving. And sometimes it takes sacrifice. Marina, I'm here to play ball with Henry until his dad shows up.
Marina: No, stop, stop, stop. Just because of what happened at the doctor?
Mallet: No, this is part of the problem. The thing that we're trying to build here, it's falling apart. We can keep building it higher and we can build it longer, but it's going to hurt more in the end. I donít... I don't think this is going to be fair for anyone, including Henry.
Jonathan: Reva's out.
Shayne: Are you alone?
Jonathan: Does it look like I'm alone?
Shayne: I'm surprised to see you watching Colin. She left you with him?
Jonathan: Duh. What are you here for?
Shayne: Just came for a visit. See my mom. My little brother Colin. Maybe get my mind off my own problems for a minute.
Jonathan: Yeah, Colin makes me miss Sarah.
Shayne: I have a question for you. Are you ever going to stop running?
Jonathan: Well, if running and hiding is what it takes to protect my little girl then no, no way. Of course not. Do you have any kids?
Jonathan: No. Then, you wouldn't understand but there is like a father instinct, just kicks in. Really makes me feel like a man.
Phillip: You look good. Hey, I know that you didn't have any time yesterday, but what do you say you and me and Lizzie do something today.
James: I'm good.
Phillip: I don't mean now. I can see are you busy. Maybe later?
James: Still busy. Lizzie is too.
Phillip: James, I just need to spend some time with you, any time that you are free.
James: When are you going to realize that I just don't like you? I don't, okay?
Billy: You scared the mailman. You scared the neighbors.
Bill: They were not scared. They were just jealous. (Laughter)
Phillip: I think Lizzie was about six years old.
Lizzie: Dad, what are you doing here?
Phillip: Hi, sweetie, do you remember this?
Bill: What, what, what?
Lizzie: I don't know.
Phillip: She used to sleep walk.
Billy: Oh, sleep walker.
Phillip: Oh, God, yeah, we used to find her all over the place. We would find her in the night, in the morning, all over the house. There was one night in particular. (Laughs)
Lizzie: No, no, you don't even want to hear this story.
Bill: I think we do.
Lizzie: It's not...
Phillip: We were out... Beth and I were late one night and we come back so, Beth goes to check to see if she is in her bedroom and she's not. So she is looking all over for her and can't find her anywhere. Finally...
Lizzie: Please, don't do this, please.
Phillip: Finally, Beth is like halfway down the block, Lizzie is standing on the curb, no clothes on with traffic going by right in front of her. She's just standing there. Here is the best part though. When Beth looks at her and says, "Honey, what are you doing out here"? She looks at her like she's lost her mind and goes, "I'm watching the cars goes by."
Bill: Oh, baby.
Billy: Oh, the shameless little streaker.
Phillip: "I'm watching the cars goes by."
Bill: You never told me that.
Lizzie: I didnít. Thank you, thank you for that. Thank you.
Phillip: Sweetie, it was cute. You were adorable.
Lizzie: I'm sure it was adorable.
Bill: That's how we met.
Lizzie: Funny. I'm never going to live this down. You realize this.
Phillip: You were never going to live it down anyway.
Bill: That was a good story.
Phillip: If you don't mind, can I steal Lady Godiva here for a couple of hours. (Laughter)
Lizzie: I'm not going anywhere with you. You know, with this family, I'm never going live this story down.
Bill: Hey, hey, hey it was a great story. He's your dad. Family comes first, remember?
Lizzie: Fine, I'll go with you. Where are we going, traitor?
Phillip: You'll find out. I'll have her back before supper time.
Jonathan: All right, all right. You don't have to tell me. I was just wondering.
Shayne: I don't wonder about you.
Jonathan: Good. No one's asking you to.
Shayne: That's because Mom has told me plenty of stories, all about it.
Jonathan: Well, you get a gold medal for that.
Shayne: Yeah, I do. Has... nobody has said anything to you about me.
Jonathan: Not much. She doesn't really talk about you.
Reva: Hey, look at this. Three of my four handsome sons.
Reva: This is great. This is like special. It's an historic event having you all in the same room together. I should get my camera. I saw your car outside. Are you okay?
Shayne: Oh, great.
Reva: Okay. Hey, I hope that's cereal.
Jonathan: Hell, no. I'm not giving bland cereal to my brother. Got a little mixed string beans with some oyster sauce.
Reva: Uh-huh. Did you mash it up well enough and no beer. I don't want him to have all those carbs. (Laughs) I'm going to put your beer in the fridge.
Jonathan: Mommy's being funny again. I'm not going to give you a beer until you are at least two or three. Yeah. He likes that.
Reva: You see how he treats me? You see how he treats me?
Reva: Are you sure you're okay? You look tired.
Shayne: Thanks. I'm fine.
Reva: You want something to drink?
Jonathan: Mom, he's fine.
Shayne: Good, good, you know, you two should talk. Catch up. It's been awhile. I'm going to go for a walk. I'll see you later.
Jonathan: (Scoffs) "I'm going to go for a walk..."
Reva: Hey, hey. (Sighs)
Marina: I knew it.
Mallet: What did you know?
Marina: I knew that as soon as you found out about Shayne, you were going to feel like this.
Mallet: Well, I guess you were right.
Marina: I don't want you feeling this.
Mallet: Baby, it doesn't matter what I feel. It is still true. The truth is the situation. I can see it. I know you can see it, too.
Marina: Then, let's figure out another situation, okay. We'll figure something else out for Henry.
Mallet: I think this is for Henry. I think we have two choices. Oh, Henry.
Marina: What if I don't like those choices, Mallet?
Mallet: We have two choices. The choices are we give Henry to Shayne or... or I go.
Marina: And if I don't want to choose either?
Mallet: Well, I don't like those choices either. Henry... he's a good kid.
Marina: No. I canít... I can't do any of this right now. Come on, bud. Come on.
Jonathan: Take it down.
Reva: I'm not gonna.
Jonathan: Take it down!
Reva: No, I'm not ready.
Jonathan: If you don't take it down, I'm going to take it down.
Reva: No, no, I'm not ready.
Jonathan: You have over a hundred pictures of the guy in here. I'm just asking you to take one down.
Reva: I've taken a lot down. I've already taken a lot of them down. And a lot of these have been here for a long time. Please. I'll take more down tomorrow, I promise.
Jonathan: All right, take a bunch more...
Reva: I will.
Jonathan: Ma, it's weird. Hey, are you going to take that down?
Reva: That's ancient history. Comes with the house.
Jonathan: Okay. Think fast!
Reva: Oh! (Laughter) You thought you had me, didn't you?
Jonathan: I thought maybe I could get you to put it in a box!
Reva: Why? Why? You know, you could have hurt me with this, it could have...
Jonathan: Yeah, sure.
Reva: Oh, now I'm going to...
Jonathan: Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no, no. It brings up bad memories.
Jonathan: Just kidding. Look at her. (Laughs)
Reva: Don't even talk about that.
Jonathan: I love you. How is she?
Reva: You know, she's happily married. You know, and she's really great. I mean, really. She had a lot of growing up to do and she did it. And they are... she and Bill are a stable, happy couple.
Jonathan: Good, good.
Reva: She misses Sarah.
Jonathan: Yeah, well, it's too bad. That's the way it's got to be.
Phillip: You know, it's been a long time since we've done this.
Lizzie: I know.
Phillip: This is fun.
Lizzie: Yeah, this is fun.
Phillip: I think marriage is good for you. You seem very happy.
Lizzie: You know something, this is good for me too.
Phillip: I'm glad.
Lizzie: It's nice doing stuff together. I miss it. You know, when you got...
Phillip: Sick? It's okay, you can say it. I was. I did a lot of bad things. We have had our ups and downs, haven't we?
Lizzie: Yes, we have.
Phillip: But today is up.
Lizzie: Today is up, definitely, definitely up. You know, I like being in this place with you. We can talk. We can hang out. I hope I'm this close with my kids.
Phillip: I do too.
Bill: Well, well. Pretty tough to play baseball by yourself. I guess with a swing like that you don't have to embarrass yourself in front of anyone. Oh, my goodness. Are you juicing?
Mallet: (Laughs) That would be cheating.
Bill: Hold up. Let me pitch you a few.
Mallet: No, I only got a few left.
Bill: Alright. I just want to tell you I know what you did.
Mallet: I don't know what you mean.
Bill: Dinah. Thank you for getting her out of town. Look, you don't have to tell me about it. I just wanted you to know that we are cool and she was in trouble and you did the right thing. So thank you. But I got to ask you, what the heck are you doing playing baseball in the middle of the day all by yourself, huh?
Mallet: Needed something to do. I guess old instincts die hard.
Bill: Well, you got some good instincts. Keep following them.
Marina: I don't know what to do for you right now, bud. (Henry cooing) I just want to make the right decision. Yeah. Mallet is the best man I've ever known. And I know he loves us a lot, yeah. I thought we could make all this work. I just want to make the right choice, you know? All right, let's get out of here.
Marina: Hey, Shayne. Hey, bud, look who it is.
Shayne: Hey, buddy. Hi. Remember me? I think he just smiled at me. Hey.
Marina: He's a friendly kid.
Shayne: Are you doing okay? You look like how I've been feeling.
Marina: Yeah, I'm fine. No, I am hanging in there. How about yourself?
Shayne: I'm not there yet.
Marina: Give yourself some time. You know, you're going through a lot right now. You've been through a lot. (Henry cries)
Shayne: Are you sure you're okay?
Marina: We all have stuff that we have to go through, Shayne. We'll survive. You will too.
Shayne: I want you guys to know that I do care about you. I want you want to know that you're okay, that's all.
Marina: We're okay.
Shayne: No, not okay. Um... the more that I'm seeing of Henry, the more that I'm realizing that my life needs to be about making his life better.
Marina: I feel like that all the time.
Shayne: I understand why now. But I hesitate because I'm in a hole right now. And my mom's life is a real mess, it is. And I don't know what I can do to help right now.
Marina: Just hang in there. Henry's not going anywhere. We're not going anywhere.
Shayne: Okay. Okay. You guys come here every day?
Marina: Sometimes. I don't know, I guess we don't have a very set schedule.
Shayne: No? Well, I'll see you around here sometime, right? I will see you, right?
Shayne: Alright, okay, bye, buddy.
Phillip: Hi. Do you feel like doing something?
Beth: I am doing something.
Phillip: What are you doing?
Beth: I'm studying for the placement exam at the start of the semester.
Phillip: I could help you study.
Woman: Shh, shh.
Beth: It's a library.
Phillip: (Whispering) Do you have to study here?
Beth: I'm not going anyplace with you, if that is what you're suggesting. I'm studying. I'm not... don't look at me like that. I'm not going anyplace. (Laughs) I hate you. I hate you.
Lizzie: Well, at least we know she's home.
Bill: Yeah. That's Shayneís car. Looks like he beat us to it.
Lizzie: Hmm, do you think we should join them or should we just come back later?
Bill: You know what we should do? We should take a little walk. We'll circle around and if he's gone then we could knock.
Lizzie: Okay. Well, you know that will give us time to talk about all the kids we're going to have.
Jonathan: I just took a walk around.
Jonathan: And I didn't see Edmund or any of his people.
Jeffrey: Are you sure?
Jonathan: I don't really know what I'm looking for, do I? So no sign of him means I just didn't see him anywhere.
Jeffrey: We need to be sure.
Jonathan: Well, it's not going to be that easy. I can't go too far, because I can't be seen.
Jeffrey: Alright. You've done what you needed to. So I guess you can get out of there.
Jonathan: Not yet.
Jeffrey: Is it your mother?
Jonathan: I just want to give it a few more days.
Jeffrey: Alright. Stay there. And whatever you do, stay out of sight and don't tell her anything.
Bill: Did you hear that?
Bill: Let's check it out. Come here.
Lizzie: No, Bill, wait!
Jonathan: Someone's coming.
Reva: Okay, something's bothering you. Why did you come back?
Shayne: How come you don't have any pictures of me?
Reva: Well, I do, sweetheart, I do. They're just not out.
Shayne: I've never seen them.
Reva: Okay, believe it or not, your grieving mama last week went a little nutso and if you look around, they're all of Jeffrey.
Shayne: I'm serious, Mom.
Reva: I'm serious. Look, look around.
Shayne: No, look at me. Listen, I know you love me. I do know that. You and I never connected.
Reva: Yes, we did.
Shayne: No, no, we didnít. Not like you and Jonathan are connected. Not like you've connected with Colin.
Reva: Shayne, listen to me. Just because he's here doesnít...
Shayne: Mom, stop it, please. I'm not complaining right now. I'm not whining. We just never really had a true connection, you and I. That's no one's fault. That's not from anyone not trying. I tried, you tried. Just... it never happened for us. How does that not happen?
Reva: How does what not happen?
Shayne: How do you not have a connection with your kid? How does a parent not have a connection with your kid? Because that scares the hell out of me.
Reva: I don't understand what scares you, because your daddy and I are both here for you.
Shayne: I'm not going to be that kind of dad, because I don't want my kid to feel the way I'm feeling right now.
Marina: Henry's asleep.
Mallet: Do you want to talk?
Marina: (Sniffles) Okay. I thought about what you were saying earlier. You're right. A lot has changed between us. But I still think that we can make that work.
Mallet: Yeah, we probably could. We're pretty decent, pretty smart people. But Marina, it's not just about you and me. It's about Henry and what's going to happen to him.
Marina: I know. But Mallet...
Mallet: His real father, Shayne, lives in Springfield. And his father already wants to be a part of his son's life. And his son has a right to get to know his father.
Marina: But we worked so hard.
Mallet: I know. We've worked really hard, because we both really want it. But it's falling apart. Because the truth is, we can't hide the truth. The truth is, we're never go to be that happy little family.
Marina: Why not?
Mallet: Because I didn't trust you. And I don't know why. I don't know why. Come on, Marina, we came back together, because we wanted to give Henry a family. We wanted to give him a mother and a father.
Marina: We can still have that. I still want that.
Mallet: Henry has a mother and Henry has a father whether I stay or whether I go.
Marina: Are those the only two choices?
Mallet: I think either we give Henry to Shayne...
Marina: I can't do that. I can't walk away. You know that.
Mallet: Yeah, I know. I know. I know. I know, I didnít... I didn't think you would be able to. And I don't blame you for that. I donít. I mean, the bottom line is, you are Henryís mother. You are. Lara's dead. But I'm not his dad. He has a real father.
Marina: No, no. You can be his dad too. He can have two dads. You can be just as much a father.
Mallet: I love Henry, I love Henry. And you know I love Henry. You know, I love him. But I... I love him and I can't deny Shayne access to his own son. Can you do that? Could you do that?
Mallet: Okay, no, exactly. And you know what? I don't think... I canít... I can't do this whole sharing thing with Shayne. I just canít.
Marina: So what am I supposed to do, huh? How am I... how am I supposed to do this?
Mallet: Baby, you're going to raise Henry. You're going to raise him. You got all of your family here to support him. You're strong. And you know Shayne, you seem to think he's a good guy. And he seems to be interested in being a good father. So you know what, good. Henry has two terrific parents in his life. Good. I don't really understand how I fit into that picture.
Marina: Right here.
Mallet: I love you. Henry... Henry deserves a chance to bond with both of his parents and that is his mother and his biological father. Baby, if I try to stay and fight and try to make something work, I don't know if that's right for everyone. I don't know if that right for anyone, including Henry.
Marina: I don't know how you can do this, Mallet. I don't know how you could just walk away and be so damn strong.
Mallet: Well, I'm not sure if I... if I am. I don't really know what to do here.
Marina: We really only have one choice, huh?
Mallet: Yeah, I think I'll go.
Billy: Uh-huh, yeah.
Vanessa: I'm not ready for this date to be over.
Bill: I guess no one's in here. Good.
Lizzie: What do you think they use this place for?
Bill: Well, I think mainly storage of junk. Used to be construction equipment, but it's just like junk.
Lizzie: How long do you think Shayne is going to be in there?
Bill: Long enough.
Lizzie: Long enough for what?
Bill: Well, I don't know. I thought maybe...
Bill: Just because we're alone and we could maybe...
Bill: Or we could talk.
Bill: About all those babies we want to have while we're maybe, I don't know, making a baby.
Lizzie: Ew, ew, ew. No, no, no, you are a horn dog.
Bill: No, that's gross, I'm joking. I'm joking.
Bill: 20 minutes, 15, eight.
Lizzie: Bill, Bill, no.
Bill: Six minutes, three, two.
Lizzie: No, listen me. If we're going to try to make a baby we're going to go home, okay.
Bill: Okay. I thought I'd try.
Lizzie: That's a nice try.
Bill: One minute?
Lizzie: Not going to happen.
Bill: You're one classy broad.
Lizzie: I know I am. Pervert.
Bill: I love you.
Reva: Cheers. You're going to be a great father someday.
Shayne: I don't know about that.
Reva: I do.
Shayne: How do you know?
Reva: Because you're a good person. Don't you forget that.
Shayne: Okay. What if I don't connect with my kid? What if I don't have the connection like you and I didn't have the connection.
Reva: Shayne, come on. I don't, because I am connected to you. I feel the connection. And I don't know why you don't feel it. Because it's there. Being your parent was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Do you feel a connection to your dad?
Shayne: Of course I do.
Reva: Okay, well, there you are.
Shayne: It's not enough for me. Because I want my kid to have everything, you know.
Reva: It will. It will have everything. This is so clichť but life is... life is a roller coaster, you know. I mean, especially parenting. No, listen to me. Parenting has it's ups and downs and all you can do, really, is just jump on, go for the ride.
Mallet: I think this is the hardest thing I've ever done.
Marina: I'm sure it is.
Mallet: I love you, Henry. I love you. I love you, too.
Marina: I love you, too. (Henry cries)
Mallet: It's okay, bud. I guess if things would have been different, I think we could have been happy. It's okay. Call me if you need anything. (Henry cries )
you know that you don't owe me anything
I wish that we could start again
can we start again can we start again?
Marina: It's okay. It's going to be okay.
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Holly: I've been meaning to visit, but you know, it's just hard to come by. So many memories.
Blake: They're not all bad.
Holly: Most of them are good.
Mallet: I've moved out.
Lillian: Does Marina's family know?
Mallet: I'm not sure. I haven't talked to her since I moved out.
Frank: I'm going to find Mallet right now and get him to tell me everything that is going on.
Marina: No, Dad, please.
Frank: Oh, no I'm not letting you guys make a mistake.
