Mallet: I called the agency to let them know if anything available came up in the future to think of me. They called a little while ago, and they have something overseas. I'd have to leave tonight.
Judge: Henry, you seem to have two very devoted parents. Congratulations.
(Cheers and applause)
Alan: I could donate my bone marrow to you.
Phillip: Dad, I appreciate you wanting to do that, but there is no way in hell that I can let you.
Reva: Look at that. Oh, you are going to have so much fun. This is your first birthday party with Henry. Ooh, won't that be fun? (Knock on door) Oh, hey, my goodness. Josh? Josh? Come in...
Josh: Yeah, come outside.
Reva: No, you come inside, because I need help with these decorations.
Josh: Reva, just come outside. I want to show you what I got for Henry.
Reva: Oh, what in the world? Why can't he just come in here? Okay, baby, come on, let's go. Ooh, you're getting to be such a big boy. You are. Okay, let's go outside and see what Josh has.
Josh: What do you think, huh? Pretty great. What, is there something the matter?
Reva: Oh, no. I think it's perfect.
Josh: I think so, too. Nothing but the best for my first grandson.
Reva: Yeah, there's only one problem.
Reva: I got him the exact same thing. The exact same thing. You don't believe me, look in my car. Go on, look.
(Knock on door)
Marina: Come in!
Shayne: Knock, knock.
Marina: You don't need to knock, especially today.
Shayne: So where's biggin? Where's he at? What's he got?
Marina: He's upstairs sleeping. And, in fact, I'm hoping he'll sleep just a little bit longer, because we'd rather have a rested, happy baby at the party, than a cranky, tired one. Come in here, I'll show what's going on.
Shayne: All right.
Shayne: So show me what to do.
Marina: Okay, well, your mom said she'd stop by the party store and pick up the balloons.
Marina: I've already hung up most of the signs. I'm sorry.
Shayne: It's okay.
Marina: No, this has got to be so awkward for you. Maybe you wanted to have this somewhere else. I should have consulted you. I'm sorry.
Shayne: No! No, no, no, no... no. This isn't awkward for me. It's not. I'm glad it's here. This is Henry’s home.
Marina: All right.
Marina: All right, good.
Shayne: Oh, you got a faller here. Do you have some tape?
Marina: Yeah, yeah. Here.
Shayne: Thank you.
Agent: You're going to a place we call the uberflak shack. It's a little one-man station outside Vietznitz.
Mallet: Vietsnitz? Okay, how do you spell that, sir?
Agent: No need to spell it. You're going to be in the middle of nowhere about 29 miles from the Austrian border. And here's your map. Outside is your vehicle. There's a GPS installed with the coordinates. Think you'll be able to find it?
Mallet: Absolutely. Thank you, sir.
Agent: Good luck.
Buzz: Watch it with that stuff.
Frank: (Laughs) That's a lot of food, Pop.
Buzz: Yeah, it's a lot of food. It's not just food, it’s... stuff.
Frank: What do you mean "stuff"?
Buzz: Well, it's secret stuff. Stuff, stuff... the food's for the family's get together, but the stuff is for Henry’s day.
Frank: You know, we could have postponed this, right?
Buzz: What, you think Marina's not up to it?
Frank: I think it's too soon.
Frank: Yeah. And Henry, he really wouldn't know the difference, so...
Buzz: Well, yeah, but she will and she needs to move forward... Frank?
Frank: Okay, Pop. You know what? We will support her and Henry.
Buzz: All right. Well, then you wrap, and I'll take care of the food and stuff, okay?
Buzz: Hey! What are doing here? You should be with the Spaulding’s after Phillip’s announcement.
Lillian: Oh, I just wanted to be here with you today.
Buzz: So you want to be on this island of happiness in this sea of woes?
Lillian: Well, what could be happier than a grandchild's first birthday?
Buzz: My face when I see you. Well, big news for the Spaulding’s all around, huh?
Lillian: Are you talking about Phillip?
Buzz: Well, no, I mean, Alan’s a match for Phillip...
Lillian: I didn't know.
Buzz: Forget I mentioned it.
Phillip: Yeah, Dad, I heard you and I'm sorry that you got tested. I didn't want anybody to go do that.
Alan: I can be your donor, Phillip. I can be you donor!
Phillip: Look, I've already been through this with James. I don't want any of you to take the risk.
Alan: Look, when I found out about it, I would... I did not come forth immediately. I was frightened, Phillip, but not anymore. You see, son, I want to save you! I want to save your life.
Phillip: Dad, it's not about what you want.
Alan: Phillip, are you not hearing what I'm telling you?
Phillip: Look, I said no. Okay?
Alan: Think for just one minute what will happen to this family if we lose you.
Phillip: Listen, you don't need to make some sort of grand gesture just to try to prove to everybody that you're a great father.
Alan: All right, all right, all right. I deserve that, Phillip. But I want to think about one thing: You and I are not blood relatives. The odds against me being a match for you, son, are staggering, but I am a match for you. Now I think that means something.
Phillip: I can’t... I can't let you do it. I can’t.
Alan: Listen to me. If you were in my position, you would be first in line to save your children and you know it, Phillip.
Phillip: Maybe... maybe it's just my time. Maybe nobody is supposed to save me.
Alan: Maybe it's not your time, Phillip.
Phillip: Nope, it's not going to happen.
Lillian: Is that for Henry’s birthday party?
Daisy: Oh, these? These are just sandwiches for the workers at Bill and Lizzie’s house. You okay?
Lillian: No. No. And I'm terribly worried about James.
Lillian: Did he tell you about Phillip?
Daisy: Yeah, um... he's having a really hard time.
Lillian: Yeah, I know. I mean, he wants to help and Phillip won't let him, so he's angry. He's just so brave and stubborn. He's just like his father.
Lillian: You'll help him, won't you?
Daisy: I mean, I'll try.
Lillian: No, I know you will.
Cyrus: Can you take this to the party from me to Henry?
Buzz: Well, take it yourself.
Cyrus: I wasn't planning on going.
Buzz: You're a Cooper now. You're a member of the family. You go to the parties that we...
Buzz: Get this food out for me, would you please?
Buzz: Wash your hands first!
Josh: So, what are we going to do about this?
Reva: Well, I think it's obvious. You take yours back.
Josh: Why don't you take yours back?
Reva: Because I have to take care of the decorations and the balloons. I don't have time.
Josh: Reva, this is my first grandchild. I would kind of like to get him a rocking horse.
Reva: Okay! Okay, how about this? You help me with the decorations and the balloons, and then I'll go and get another gift. And we'll say that all of it is from both of us. Okay?
Reva: Put these in the cars. And I will go take care of the balloons, and you can call Marina and ask her an idea for another gift.
Josh: Anything else?
Reva: Yeah, wrapping paper. We're going to need wrapping paper. If there's another gift, it's going to have to be wrapped. Now you see why I'm mad?
Shayne: All right, look around, kiddo, what do you think? Look at all the decorations, huh? Look what your mama did for you. It looks pretty good, right? Yeah.
Marina: Yeah, you like it? Yeah, this is going to be fun.
Shayne: He's into it.
Marina: Yes, it is. Okay...
Shayne: You think he's going to get a real mitt from anyone?
Marina: Yeah. I think so.
Shayne: I mean, a real mitt, you know?
Marina: I think he'll get like two or three.
Shayne: You better get to it. You know why? Because you're going to be a ball player. That's right you are. (Phone ringing) And your daddy knows a few things about that. I've got a few tricks up my sleeve.
Marina: Can you get the phone, please?
Shayne: Well, you wait, because I'm going to show you all about it. (Phone ringing) Hello? This is Henry’s happy birthday party, how can I help you?
Mallet: Hey, it's Mallet. Is Marina...
Shayne: Hey Mallet.
Mallet: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I wanted to call and wish Henry a happy birthday.
Shayne: Yeah, yeah, of course, man, hold on a second.
Mallet: Hey. How's Henry doing?
Marina: He's good.
Mallet: Great. I was kind of hoping that... I was kind of hoping I could talk to him. You know, Marina...
Marina: Hey bud, listen up on the phone, okay? Your... friend is calling you all the way from Germany.
Mallet: Hey, buddy. Hey, happy birthday. Happy birthday, congratulations, one year old. You made it, dude. I'm sorry I'm not there to celebrate with you. I wanted to, but... hey, buddy, listen, you do me a favor, okay? Take real good care of your mama, okay? She loves you. Take really good care of her. Happy birthday, boodah, boodah, boodah, boodah. Happy birthday.
Marina: Hey, there, um, he's smiling.
Mallet: Thanks for that. And thanks for being such a great mom to him. He deserves that.
Marina: I'm sorry.
Lizzie: Are you going to have them paint over that weird spot on the south wall today?
Bill: Weird spot on the south wall... are you talking about under the bedroom window? No!
Lizzie: It's hideous.
Lizzie: Yeah, it looks like they were testing paint colors or something.
Bill: I don't know about that. I'll take another look.
Lizzie: Okay. I don't know if I want to go to the party.
Lizzie: I'm just worried about dad and I don't know if it's appropriate.
Phillip: Go to the party.
Bill: Did you hear that?
Phillip: I heard it.
Bill: She's worried about you.
Phillip: (Laughing) I heard it, I heard it.
Lizzie: How are you feeling?
Phillip: I feel good. I feel... certainly good enough to make myself useful for a few hours.
Lizzie: I think that's probably a little too risky.
Phillip: Honey, when you know basically when your time is coming... you know, it takes risk out of the picture. I can do whatever I want.
Phillip: I'll be careful, all right? But seriously, you two should go to the party. I don't want anybody to change their plans because of all this. That would make me very unhappy. Life goes on. So I'm going to go to work. Make her go to the party.
Bill: I... yeah... gotcha.
Lizzie: Be careful.
(knock on door)
Shayne: Come in. Let's see your curveball. You ready? Oh!
Josh: Hey guys, how are we doing?
Shayne: Say hi-ho! Hi, Grandpa. "Hi, Grampy."
Josh: Grampy? Really?
Shayne: Yeah, Grampy, just like that.
Josh: No, I don't think so. No, no, no, no.
Shayne: Say Grampy, you're early for the party. You're early for the party.
Josh: Hey, bud, how are you doing? Yes, well, your mother and I... your crazy mother and I were having gift issues. So we were wondering if there is something else that Henry needs.
Shayne: Yes, there is something else he needs. There he is. He needs a mitt, a real mitt, a serious mitt.
Josh: He's too small for a mitt, son. Seriously, I mean...
Shayne: He's not too small for a... what are you talking about? I got a mitt when I was his age. He'll grow into it, it'll be fine.
Josh: (Laughing) Okay, all right. We'll get him a mitt. Boy, look at the baseball decorations, huh? The same stuff that I used when you were this age, I think.
Shayne: Say Daddy raided Grandpa's garage.
Josh: If he loves baseball, then he's going to have a great father for it, right? Hey, have you thought anything more about that coaching job over at the high school?
Shayne: I'm too busy right now, Dad. I am. I will think about it, though. It's just, you know, this is the first time in a long time... whoa! Whoa! This is the first time in a long time that I've felt complete, you know? Here with him, I'm happy right now.
Josh: Well, I think you're going to be a natural at this. I was thinking about it, you know, how weird it is that you wouldn't have even known that you had a child if it hadn't been for... well, for Dinah.
Shayne: Yeah, you know. Come here, buddy. Come here.
Shayne: This has been the most awesome... you have been the most awesome thing that I've ever done with my whole life. Aren't you, buddy?
Josh: I know the feeling.
Lillian: Alan? Alan? I saw you from across the park. Are you okay? I hear you came back a match for Phillip.
Alan: Yeah. He won't do it, though. He said no.
Lillian: Well, of course he won't do it. But I am so proud of you for wanting to put his life ahead of your own. That's so brave of you. I think there's hope for you yet.
Phillip: Hey! Those for me?
Daisy: It's just food for the work crew.
Phillip: Well, I'm working. I'm definitely hungry.
Daisy: All right, well, if the door's open, I'll just leave it inside. You can help yourself.
Daisy: Um... I'm sorry you're dying.
Phillip: Me, too. I'll miss everybody.
Daisy: And I just wanted to tell you that, um... James really is upset. No matter what he says, he just... he doesn't want you to know.
Phillip: I got it.
Daisy: It's just that he's just kind of like me. He doesn't act how he feels. Does that make sense?
Phillip: Yeah, it makes perfect sense, but I appreciate you saying it. I'm glad he has you in his life. Okay.
Reva: Okay. I got the balloons. Did you call Marina about an idea for another gift?
Reva: Oh, well, then it's a good thing I got something. Look, isn't this cute? (Laughs)
Josh: That's fantastic. That can be from you.
Reva: No, no. It's going to be from both of us, and so is the horse. That's going to be from both of us.
Reva: Okay? I'm going to go inside. I'm going to get the centerpieces.
Josh: No problem. I'll get stuff out the car.
Reva: Okay, wait! No, no, wait.
Josh: It's okay...
Reva: Don't, don’t...
Reva: Don't open it! Oh! Catch those.
You're climbing a mountain and I don't know why.
Just like a fool chasing the wind
looking for answers way up in the sky
but I think it's time to come back down again
and tend to my garden
Shayne: Hey, hey, hey. Say, hey Grandpa.
Frank: Oh! Who's the birthday boy, slugger? Come here, come to Grandpa.
Shayne: Here's the guy himself, right there.
Frank: Yes, yes. Wow. What's up, big boy? Happy birthday. That's a very big day in the Cooper family, you know that? Yes! (Laughs)
Shayne: Wow, he's giving you the business. How are you doing, Frank?
Frank: Yes, he is. I'm all right, I'm all right.
Shayne: Hey, you be nice to your grandpa.
Frank: Hey, um...
Shayne: He's got a killer arm.
Frank: Yeah, I know. Somebody like baseball around here?
Shayne: Marina went a little overboard with the baseball motif, but that's all right, isn't it? That's all right.
Frank: Did... I think he wants to be with you.
Shayne: Yeah? All right.
Frank: You guys did a good job.
Shayne: Yeah? Thanks.
Frank: You're a good man, Shayne. Being here, doing all of this. I want you to know that. It’s... I know it's been tough for everybody, but I'm kind of in the same boat. You know, I'm about to have a kid, about to enter a family that's not very traditional at all, so... thank you for stepping up. Thank you for being a man and for doing this. It means a lot.
Shayne: Thank you, Frank. Thank you very much.
Frank: You look beautiful, baby girl.
Marina: Thank you.
Frank: Holy smokes.
Shayne: You do look great.
Marina: Thank you. I think I'm ready now.
Marina: You ready, boy? You ready, birthday boy? (Laughter) Are you ready for your birthday party?
Shayne: Who is that? Is that your mama? That's Mama.
Frank: Happy to see you.
Shayne: He lights up when she walks in.
Lizzie: Granddad, hey.
Alan: How are you, Elizabeth?
Lizzie: Good. Are you okay? Is this about Dad?
Alan: No, I'm just walking. I have to keep walking, that's all.
Bill: Do you need a car? You know where you are?
Alan: Yeah, of course, I'm fine. Look, thanks for your concern and everything. Why don't you all just go to the party and I'm going to be all right, really.
Lizzie: Wow, this is going to be a lot harder than I thought it would be. Thank goodness I have you.
Bill: Yes, you do. Come on, we'll check on him after the party.
Mallet: (Speaking in German) Braken sie hilfe? Excuse me, ma'am, braken sie hilfe?
Dinah: I need help.
Wake up and face the wind
Alan: Phillip, I can't lose you now, son, I can’t. There so much that can be changed now. I get it! I see it! You've been right. All along, you've been right. I've been totally selfish. But it's because, son, I... because I've been afraid. I've been afraid all my life. Afraid of losing the things, the people that I love. Afraid of losing you.
Sometimes in my head, I've been such a fool
Alan: Oh, son, I know I... I know I haven't been the father that you deserve. I know that I pushed you when you were young to be like me, be successful. You know, son, you and I have never had the father/son relationship that you or I have wanted and the relationship that you deserve from me. I was the father that pushed you to succeed and be a success. And yet, when you were like me, I was threatened by it. I was paranoid... paranoid that you were going to take control away from me. Here you are, son, facing your own mortality, your own death... with open arms, embracing it. It's as if you crossed over a threshold and become the man that you were truly meant to be. Well, son, I want to crossover my threshold. I now have the courage, but you are the only person that can allow me to do that. You have to let me go through this procedure with you, to take the risk, so that I can be the father to you that I've always wanted to be. That I could become the man that I've always wanted to be. If you don't, son... if I lose you, then I'll lose myself.
And my dream carried me away like a song
yes, my dream carried me away like a song.
Frank: Are you sure you're up to this?
Lillian: Of course I am. There's nothing more I can do to help Phillip.
Reva: Help him with what?
Lillian: Oh, nothing.
Josh: No, no, no. What are you talking about?
Reva: Hey, you have to tell us now.
Lillian: You're going to know anyway. He’s... oh, God, he's so sick, he's dying. And they've tried all treatment and he has a few days.
Reva: Oh, my God. Oh, how can we possibly go in there and do this?
Lillian: We have to go in there. We have to.
Reva: It's Henry’s birthday. We'll have to pull it together.
Josh: Thank you for telling us. Thank you.
Frank: Let's go.
Mallet: What are you... are you kidding me? What are you doing here?
Dinah: My car is broken.
Mallet: I can see that.
Dinah: This is where I landed. Why are you here?
Mallet: This is where I landed. I'm on my way to a new job. Get out of here!
Dinah: You're not with the SPD anymore?
Mallet: No, I'm with the agency. I got special assignments all over the place.
Dinah: How is Marina taking that?
Mallet: She's okay with it. We're not together anymore.
Dinah: What happened?
Mallet: I guess it wasn't meant to be.
Dinah: Wait, you and her... very happy couple. You were a very happy couple.
Mallet: You know when we were talking about how you thought you were a screw-up? And how you destroyed people's lives and everything? Do you remember that? Well, looking back on that, I think all of your actions led people to where they're supposed to be. I think everybody is in the right place. I mean, if you think about it, you let me go when Marina needed me. You found Shayne and brought him home when no one else could. You made him walk again. You found his baby when he didn't even know he had a baby. And you found that baby a safe, loving home with a good, caring mother. You told Shayne he was the father when the timing was right. Shayne gets to be a father to his own son. I think everyone's where they're supposed to be.
Dinah: What about you?
Mallet: I think I'm where I'm supposed to be, too.
Lillian: Where's Buzz?
Cyrus: He just loaded up the car with food and then took off.
Lillian: Ooh, for me?
Cyrus: Yeah, for you.
Lillian: Thanks. (Bell rings) What in the world is that?
Shayne: I think it's coming from outside.
Marina: It's a clown, Henry!
Cyrus: It's Buzz the clown. (Laughter) You know when I tickle your belly...
Reva: Make a wish.
Marina: Okay, let's make a wish. Are you ready? Are you ready?
(Cheers and applause)
Shayne: Happy birthday, buddy.
Josh: Are you one? (Laughter)
Daisy: All right, everybody, everybody. Our resident clown has a request. All right, so we're going to pass this around, and everybody take a box.
Reva: Do they open?
Daisy: Then open the box, right, and they take out what's inside and you give it to somebody else. And once you do that, you make a wish. (Laughs)
Marina: Aww, this is so cute. Look, bud, there are all kinds of baseball chocolates.
Marina: Yum-yum. Oh, cute.
Shayne: So, a lot has changed in the last few weeks, but I can't say I wish for much. One wish I would make is that everything could stay exactly the way that it is today.
Marina: Thank you. And I say, things are good. I didn't know they could be this good, but they are.
Mallet: Okay. All right, I'm not much of mechanic, but I think it'll get you to the next town. Where are you headed?
Dinah: Where are you headed?
Mallet: Vietznitz. If I can find it.
Dinah: It's that way.
Mallet: Oh, good.
Dinah: Yeah, several miles. How long are you going to be there?
Mallet: You know, I don't know. I don't know. And you... you didn't tell me where you were headed.
Dinah: Well, I try to keep on the move. Some days I have a plan. Some days I don’t. You know, I just keep driving until something tells me to stop.
Mallet: Uh-huh. And what told you to stop today?
Dinah: The radiator. You?
Mallet: I couldn't understand my GPS.
Mallet: So you don't know where you're headed next?
Dinah: No. No, I keep trying to find that place, but... unlike you, you've made some pretty definitive choices about your life and you feel that you are where you are supposed to be, but I have left Springfield and I don't know... I haven't really felt settled. I don't know where I'm supposed to be.
Mallet: Well, you know, you'll figure it out when it's due.
Dinah: Yeah. Thank you for fixing my car.
Mallet: You're welcome and thank you for showing me the way.
Dinah: Sure. So I'm going to see you soon, I hope.
Mallet: Yeah, I'll guess I'll see you sometime.
Dinah: Okay. Get a hug?
Mallet: Watch my hands. Good to see you.
Everything would be okay if we just stick together
Cyrus: Peace offering?
Frank: All right, Cyrus. I wish you peace.
Reva: Did you make a wish?
Josh: No, actually, because there is nothing I could wish for that could happen.
Reva: Well, we both have things that are good in our lives, right?
Josh: That's true. And the things we don't have...
Both: ...Are the things we don't have.
Josh: Thank you, just one?
Reva: Just one.
Lizzie: Well, we are very, very, very happy, but I think we have a lot to wish for.
Bill: Finishing the house?
Lizzie: Yeah, and I want Sarah back, and I want to have a baby with you.
Bill: Baby with me. Then I guess we're going to have to wish for a little more time alone.
Lizzie: Most of all, I just want my dad to be okay.
You help me keep it together
you get so heart strong and I can't turn away
because this is what we dream of
It's everything that we are so I need to know
Lillian: You're the most incredible man. Look at the day you did for your... Henry and your whole family. And I cannot tell you how happy I am to be a part of it. I wish that Phillip would live.
I can hear you oh, it's all right
Phillip: I'm sorry, Dad. I'm not going to let you risk your life to save me.
Alan: It's not about you, Phillip. It's about saving me. Don't you understand, son? You see, I'm still selfish. But I don't want to be anymore.
Phillip: Okay, Dad. I know how you feel about me. You don't have anything to prove.
Alan: Phillip, I have never been the father to you that you deserve. But I now have the courage to take that step, but only you... if you allow me to go through this procedure, can I achieve that, son.
Phillip: Dad, you have to stay here and take care of this family.
Alan: Family? What good would I be to the family if I lose myself?
Phillip: You're my father. How can I not want you to live?
Alan: And you are my son, Phillip. How can I not do everything in my power as a father to want to save my son? And I can do that, son, if you will allow me to acquire the courage that I want, that I need, that I have lacked all of my life, by allowing me to go through this procedure with you, son. You can help me. Only you can help me, son!
Alan: Phillip, thank you, son. Thank you. Son, can I have that balloon?
Phillip: (Laughs) I don't think so.
Alan: You know, you're not being grateful to someone who's just saved your life.
Phillip: You haven't saved it yet.
Coming up on "Guiding Light"...
Jonathan: I want to ask you something. I figure you'll give me a straight answer. I'm thinking we want to live here. Do you think it's safe?
Phillip: Dad, it's not too late to change your mind.
Alan: I'm not backing out this time.
Edmund: Check the surveillance video of Springfield. Make sure O’Neill hasn't gone anywhere near Reva.
