Episode #32 ~ Anatomy of a Divorce
Provided By Suzanne
Someone will be right with you. There's coffee on the service station if you want. Try not to touch anything.
Do you know what this is, Leo?
It's my church, it's where I belong. Where I truly feel like myself. I know how Kennedy felt in the white house, how former child stars feel in rehab. I'm home.
I'm going to get a coffee. You want anything?
I need neither fruit nor drink, this room nourishes me. An acting chair. David Vickers Buchanan productions. My star on the Hollywood walk of fame? Yes, thank you. Where will it be placed? Next to Charlie chaplain? What television show was he on.
David. Stages are a magical place, aren't they?
Yes, they are. They truly are. I'm so glad I'm not the only one that thinks that. The history, the legacy. My sense memory breathing in all the things that must have been shot in these walls, actors, directors, crews, moments of inspiration, I can feel them filling me creatively now, knowing I will be part of the history of this building. It humbles me.
It is a reality show.
So it won't be filmed here.
Why would it be in this place.
I find them wonderful place ss create and dream.
Sound stage or not, you supply the lights, you supply the cameras, I'll supply the action.
You want everything?
I haven't found the entire amount I lost.
If something happened to me and the person I loved did that for me, I would be thrilled. I think everyone I know would be thrilled.
Not this woman, no.
It is like an act of kindness.
Think of it this way. Your father thought taking a restraining order out against john McBain was also an act of kindness.
Except for it was manipulating and controlling.
Yes. And all the while he was claiming everything he was doing was for my own good.
Like he did to me.
Well, you're about to taste the bet -- best Italian food in all of pa.
I am going out.
You have a date?
Those heels? Jewelry and makeup? It's a date.
I have to go. Have fun with dinner, guys.
Text us if you're bringing home a frat boy.
You are so far off.
What will it be, drinks, dinner?
Hopefully a little of both.
Todd, this is hard. Jack is still very upset. I'm sure he's going to come around. Have you heard anything? It is on for tonight? Call me the minute you know anything, all right?
Don't. Don't you dare say a word to me. Don't speak. Good evening, Blair.
Aunt Dorian, I had no idea you were going to grace us with your presence tonight.
Believe me, I had to give it a lot of thought, with the veteran gala coming up, I can't stay away from here forever, but after what I saw on that dance floor.
Yes, now I know what you're talking about here, I'm sure it is very difficult for you to come in here.
You've got no idea. And that's why this is going to be the game changer. It is about that chick.
I don't want to hear her name, see her face ever again, and that's the solution.
Solution to what?
You have a wonderful, engaging personality and light up the screen. I understand why people are drawn to you.
Colorful life. Lives. I am always re-inventing myself.
We are demoing women 18 to 59.
18 to infinity, I am kind of like cat nip to them.
The show can't be about you every week. We need to zero in on where the conflict is.
Pretty much where I am.
What is he doing?
I don't go anywhere without my camera. Why get out of bed if you don't film it.
I love it. You are a total narcissist.
Who is this cameraman?
Leo. Everybody needs a Leo. He is like Tonto to my lone ranger.
I loved your work on the sizzle reel. You know how to move a camera. Stick with me, I'll get you an Emmy.
Know your place, Tonto, you're replaceable.
Jill, I thought maybe you should tell me your ideas about me.
I was fascinated by your home life.
Never a dull moment.
No. And also I am absolutely obsessed with your wife.
She's a firecracker. I love that you have such a volatile relationship.
Dorian, the show can't be about her.
No, of course it won't just about her, it will be about both of you. We'll follow your marriage.
No, that's not possible. We hit sort of a rough patch.
Try 40 grade sandpaper. We separated.
I forgave him. You can, too.
No, not this time. I have learned my lesson.
The wedding is off, it's over.
I'm so sorry.
You know what, I'm sorry, too, but I cannot do this again. I don't trust him. What are you going to do? Where are you going to go?
Nowhere. I am staying here in Llanview where I belong. I gave your father back the ring but kept his money, I had to. All those people at the banner would have lost their jobs.
What are you going to do at the veteran's gala?
Dad is man of the year, you're on the steering committee.
We're adults, we can work together, just can't live together.
Shoot, I'm sorry, I have to go.
You have dinner plans?
Actually, I am meeting someone for drinks.
It is nothing, it is nothing. It is the guy I told you about before. I like him and I like the destruction and the -- distraction.
I am absolutely ready to move on. I think I waited way too long. Really, really need to get --
Don't say that.
Oh, no, no, I was going to say I need to get out and have fun.
Fun, yes. Fun is good. Fun. I need some fun, too.
I love you.
Oh, honey. Oh, my baby, I love you.
So what's the verdict?
Awesome. Seriously. Find the best food for the least money anywhere in the world.
He means I know how to be cheap.
You know how to eat, dude. Remember that Indian place in London?
Yeah, that's right. This doesn't compare to this place. And that place next door that had the --
The spoon and the --
Do you remember that Jamaican restaurant, they had killer jerk chicken.
Yes, said the killer jerk, get it?
That he is a jerk, if that's what you mean.
Hey, what's your problem?
Nothing. I'm just tired of hearing about your travels around the world together. Sorry, I never left Llanview.
I thought you were from Toronto. Isn't that another country?
Something wrong with me since I am Canadian?
No, just can't keep your story straight.
Hey. Can you stop? You're making it worse.
Matthew, thank you, but don't talk about me like I am not here.
I'm sorry. We can see you are a vision in pink.
What's that supposed to mean?
You're like a big piece of pink bubble gum.
I'm sorry. He's a really nice guy, I swear, he's just joking around too much.
Matty, don't have to talk about me like I'm not in the room either.
Come on, let's go get a beer.
Just the two of us?
Okay. These are warm anyway.
Bye. Enjoy yourself.
Oh, my God, I so have to see you.
That doesn't sound good.
Let's say I am not a favorite --
It will blow over.
Where is she, I'll handle it.
She's at the bar. Good luck. Be on my side.
I'm on it.
Good evening, senator lord.
That would be dr. Lord to you, Mr. Wentworth.
I understand you have a problem with one of my employees?
One of Blair's employees, yes.
Rama is my hire. What's the matter?
I'll cut to the chase. I want her fired.
Absolutely not. Rama stays. Anything else?
Oh, please remember who I am and that I know everybody who is anybody in this town.
I'm sure you used to, but after the scandal, how many of them are sticking around? Now, if you pressure me into firing Rama, she will sue me for wrongful termination, I in turn will sue you. Do you want another barrage of humiliating publicity?
Pulling out the big guns, are you?
I like to play nice, but if you cross me, I can be ruthless. I suggest you go home and don't come back until you're ready to accept that you don't tell me how to run my business ever.
You know, you're really very endearing when you're threatening. Okay. Rama can stay as long as she stays away from me.
I was a little surprised to hear from you.
A good surprise I hope?
I am here. Yeah, I ended up keeping that, if that's okay.
That's okay. I told you take anything you want.
I was afraid I reminded you of Briana.
I don't want to forget about her. You want to drink anything? A glass of wine?
I should probably look at the menu first. I haven't eaten all day. My mother just walked in..
Only reason I am here is I decided to forgive you.
Forgive me for what?
Oh, hello. How are you, Dorian?
So good to see you.
Nice to see you, too.
Long time. You look wonderful as always.
I love her. I do.
I have a feeling you two have something you would like to talk about. Excuse me, will you?
So glad to be here.
Have you heard from Todd?
Yes, the plan is a go.
I hope it works because if it doesn't, we're both in a hell of a lot of trouble.
Tell me about it. Until we hear from Todd, there's nothing we can do. You have to wait.
Pray I guess. And drink.
I have to get out of here.
Is there anything wrong with us having dinner together?
No, she's wound up pretty tightly. I don't want her to get the wrong idea and freak out.
Do you? Help me sneak out.
I will pay the check and meet you outside. Go.
Any chance you might reconcile?
Absolutely not. This time is different. I hate to use the d word, but --
You're heading towards divorce?
It may be inevitable.
Why are you smiling?
Am I? Sorry. You must think I'm awful.
No beautiful woman is ever truly awful. Why don't you help me understand.
My mom actually collapsed the other day, I freaked. I complain about the woman so much, I can't imagine losing her.
Is she all right? She seemed okay to me.
The doctor said it was a panic attack. What gets someone so nervous that they can't breathe?
Worrying about their beautiful daughter.
Yes, I'm sure that's it, blame it on me.
Hey, my own mother says she hasn't slept one good night since the day I was born.
What? She still worries about you even at your age?
Hey, not that old.
Yeah, you are.
Perhaps you have to help me down the street, young lady.
Come, old man.
For years I had this notion of a show where the audience sees both sides of a breakup and I titled it anatomy of a divorce.
It is like a he said she said kind of thing, but I think with your on camera charisma we could sell it just from your perspective.
So you would tell this from the point of view of my eyes and my eyes only.
That's the idea.
So you want me to strip naked and lay bare all of the graphic details as my marriage disintegrates?
Unless it is too personal.
You want me to share the gut wrenching details, and share them with the entire public, millions of viewing g
I didn't grow up in that mansion.
Trailer park, Atlantic city.
Talk about a culture shock.
You don't know the half of it.
We're not that different, two kids from the wrong side of the tracks.
Yeah. Roxy wasn't the best at parenting, once in a while had decent advice. She liked to say that in life, just leave a hand to the top.
I say deal your own hand.
If you have to throw one up your sleeve once in a while?
The lady thinks I'm a cheater.
Depends on the game.
Don't try it if you're playing.
Keep that in mind.
You didn't get your dinner. You must be starved.
Is this open?
Yes, thank you.
So, this may sound strange and if it makes you uncomfortable in any way, just too bad, all right? Okay. Seriously, couple months ago I bought tickets for the veteran's gala.
Everyone is going.
Good. I mean, well I have two tickets, I was going to take Briana, now I have two tickets, I was going to go myself. Do you wish to accompany me?
I'm asking you.
Yeah, I'd love to go.
Great. What if your mother is there? I mean --
Briana's uncle straight from Italy.
If my own mother only knew the lies I've told. Hey.
I'll get the menu.
Sit down, sit down! I want to get you something.
You've given me too much already.
What, the scarf?
Plus I had taken more things.
You what? I am messing with you. I told you you can take anything you want. Those were Briana's things. I want you to have something that's yours. A token of my appreciation for everything you've done.
Oh, my God. These are beautiful.
You could wear them to the gala.
This is too much. I can't accept this, I'm sorry.
No, no, no, no, no, please, no strings attached. A simple gift from one friend to another. I'll be offended if you don't accept and I won't buy you dinner.
All right. I don't know what to say.
Just letting you know I am in need of a friend now and that you are as happy as I am that we're getting to know each other.
Okay. I can say all of those things.
I am going to fetch that waitress to get some food.
I got word victor died tonight.
