Passions Transcript Tuesday 6/4/02

By Suzanne

Nick: You cost me a bundle, brian. You ruined my business.

Brian: Your business? Is that what you call it? How about calling it your scam? See, you can't scam people out of their retirement funds. I wasn't going to let you do that.

Nick: I want my money, brian.

Brian: I don't have your money. It's their money. I don't owe you anything.

Brian: Diana.

Nick: Diana may be beautiful, but she knows nothing about playing cards. She and her lover boy, brian, haven't a clue how much she owes me. But they'll find out soon enough. Oh, yeah. Now they both owe me. These markers will remind you that you owe me money, brian, old buddy. You'll come around soon -- real soon.

Doc: Who you staring at, liz?

Liz: New guy. Just checked in to 117?

Doc: Oh. Why?

Liz: Someone from brian's past. Brian wants him out of here.

Doc: Yeah? What's brian got against this guy?

Liz: Oh, he worked for him one time. Guy ran an illegal pension fund, scamming retirees out of their money. Brian exposed his scam.

Doc: Can't imagine the guy was too thrilled about that.

Liz: No.

Doc: You want me to toss him out on his keister?

Liz: No, doc, i have another idea, but I need your help. Take this passkey. Go take all of his stuff out of 117 and bring it down here.

Doc: You got it.

Liz: Thanks, doc.

Liz: Excuse me. I have some bad news. There's a problem with your room.

Nick: A problem?

Liz: Yes. This is an old place, and the pipes burst. Big septic backup. You can't possibly go back in your room. Unfortunately, i don't have any other rooms, so you'll have to leave. I'm really sorry.

Reporter: Mrs. Crane, will you give a statement?

Second reporter: Look, how can you explain the verdict?

First reporter: Theresa, why did you kill your husband?

Simone: What are whitney and chad doing there together?

Zombie charity: I'm so sorry you had to see this, simone -- your sister draped all over the man that you love.

Simone: There's got to be a good explanation.

Zombie charity: Well, yeah, there is.

Kay: Charity --

zombie charity: Whitney stole your boyfriend, simone, right out from under your nose.

Judge: Order!

[Judge pounds gavel]

reporter: Something for the public?

Rebecca: Theresa is going to die. Our plan is working.

Ivy: Adios, terror-sita.

Pilar: My baby. My baby is going to die! Dear God --

luis: You call this justice?

Judge: Order!

Luis: My sister has been railroaded!

Judge: I'll have order in this courtroom.

Luis: How can there be order when there is no justice?

Judge: I understand what you're going through, ofc. Lopez fitzgerald, but you're instructed to control your temper or leave this courtroom immediately.

Ethan: I agree with ofc. Lopez fitzgerald. Rushing sentencing the way you have makes a mockery of this court, and i won't allow it.

Judge: You won't --

ethan: No. Your honor, I demand that you set aside your sentence, recuse yourself from this case, and let another judge hear it.

Judge: My decision has been rendered and it's irrevocable.

Ethan: Nothing is irrevocable.

Judge: Sit down, counselor.

Ethan: No, I'll have it overturned.

Judge: Sit down or I'll find you in contempt. The sentence stands. Theresa lopez fitzgerald crane will be executed by lethal injection directly after her baby his born.

[Gallery murmurs]

singer: I would hold the hand of the one who could lead me places and kiss the lips of the one who could sing so sweet and i would fly on the wings of the bird i knew could take me highest breathe in, breathe out you keep me alive you are the fire burning inside of me you are my passion for life

kay: Hey. I'm really, really sorry. Simone, I tried to tell you before, but you just wouldn't listen to me. I knew you couldn't trust whitney and she was after chad.

Simone: No. You're wrong, kay. My sister is not after chad.

Kay: Ok. What do you call that?

Simone: There has to be a good explanation for that.

Kay: Sweetie -- whitney wants chad. That is the explanation.

Simone: No. It's theresa. Whitney is theresa's best friend and she's just been sentenced to death. Whitney is upset and chad is just comforting her like a friend would do.

Zombie charity: It'd say a little too close for comfort. I mean, look at them. They're all over each other.

Chad: Everything's going to be ok. Ethan's going to get that thing reversed. You'll see.

Ethan: Your honor, somehow you have concluded theresa's waived her rights to be treated fairly. Well, allow me to disabuse you of that notion.

Judge: I don't know what you're so exercised about, counselor. You do recall that mrs. Crane confessed to murdering her husband and asked the court to move swiftly in disposing of the matter, which is precisely what i did. No one has cause for complaint -- except the dead man, perhaps.

Ethan: I fail to see the humor in this, your honor.

Judge: I was merely making an observation.

Ethan: You've merely turned this into a courtroom farce.

Judge: And you, sir, have been warned.

Ethan: Well, this is an utter and total miscarriage of justice.

Judge: One more word and you'll spend the night in jail.

Ivy: He means it, eth.

Ethan: I don't care.

Ivy: Don't be foolish. You can't help theresa if you're in jail. Look, I know you're upset, but jeopardizing your career isn't going to help anything.

Ethan: You're right. I need to be available to help theresa. I just can't believe this is happening. I thought for sure that we could free theresa before an execution date was set.

Luis: Theresa. Theresa, please, time is running out. I know that you didn't kill julian. Why are you doing this? Who are you protecting?

Nick: When did this happen? I was just in my room a little while ago and everything was fine.

Liz: It just happened. One of the maids just reported it to me.

Nick: Pipes burst?

Liz: I'm having your bags packed and brought up here. That way none of your things will be ruined. And I feel so badly about the inconvenience that last night will be on the house. Of course, there won't be a charge for breakfast this morning. I'll even throw in a bag lunch for the plane later.

Nick: Plane?

Liz: Yes. Maybe you can come back and visit our island some other time, when it's less crowded.

Nick: Yeah, but I wasn't planning on leaving yet.

Liz: Well, I wish you didn't really have to go, but i called the other hotels on the island and they're all booked up, too. Not even a bed-and-breakfast. So, you see, you really will have to leave. I'll see you get a taxi to the airport.

Nick: How do you -- how do you stay in business pulling this?

Liz: "Pulling"?

Nick: What's really going on, liz? May I call you liz? What are you up to?

Liz: Nothing. I just told you.

Nick: I know what you told me, and it's a crock. I want the truth.

Liz: Look, I want you out of here.

Nick: Why? Brian. You're in love with brian.

Brian: Diana, i'm really sorry. I had no idea it was you.

Sheridan: Boy, i'm glad to hear you say that.

Brian: Well, are you all right?

Sheridan: Aside from my heart being in my throat, yeah.

Brian: I'm sorry. I saw the knife and I just --

sheridan: Which I need.

Brian: For what?

Sheridan: This. You could use a break.

Brian: Yeah. You're right, as always.

Sheridan: Open up.

Brian: Thanks. Really, I apologize. I didn't mean to jump you like that.

Sheridan: Who did you think i was?

Brian: Nobody.

Sheridan: Come on, brian, who could you possibly hate that much? You thought I was that guy from the cafe earlier, the one that i was waiting on who thought that he recognized me.

Brian: Yeah.

Sheridan: Who is he?

Brian: He's my past.

sheridan: The man in the cafe was the one that you used to work for, isn't he? The one who ran all those pension scams?

Brian: Nick.

Sheridan: I'm so sorry.

Brian: Why are you sorry? I'm the one that hooked up with the idiot.

Sheridan: I know how much you want to put it all behind you.

Brian: I thought I was home free, but you can't run away from youpast forever.

Sheridan: What does he want from you?

Brian: He says he doesn't want anything. He said he's here to collect a debt from someone else on the island.

Sheridan: I guess we should just take him at his word and believe that he's not here for you.

Brian: The trouble is that nick's word doesn't mean very much, which is exactly the reason that I want you to stay away from him.

Sheridan: But he says that he recognizes me. Maybe he can give me answers about my past.

Brian: You want to know who you are -- and i understand that, diana -- but nick doesn't have the answers. He wouldn't tell you the truth if his life depended on it.

Sheridan: Well, what if he's telling the truth this time?

Brian: He's not. Nick uses people and then he gets rid of them. I've seen it happen more times than i can even count. That's why i had to get out of it before he killed me. And that's the reason I don't want you anywhere around that stuff, ok?

Sheridan: What was it like? That whole world?

Brian: You don't want to know.

Sheridan: Hey. I asked, didn't I? Tell me, please?

Brian: At first it was like i hit gold, the mother lode. Anything you could possibly want. Anything money could buy. But then you start to wise up and you realize that there's a price to pay for all that fun. A heavy price.

Nick: You know, I may not be a ph.D., But i am a student of human behavior and I can see that you're crazy about brian.

Liz: Well, I'm a student of human behavior, too, and I can see you're a total bastard.

Nick: No wonder why brian likes you.

Liz: Brian loves diana.

Nick: Now it all makes sense. You know what? You may not realize this, but I could end up being your best friend.

Liz: You're nuts.

Nick: Brian dumped you for diana --

liz: He did not dump me. We had no commitment.

Nick: That's my brian -- beautiful woman in every port. Sometimes two.

Liz: You know, shut up and leave.

Nick: Truth hurts, doesn't it?

Liz: I am brian's friend and I am not going to let you do anything to hurt him.

Nick: Didn't you hear me? Don't you get it? I can end up being your best friend by doing you a big favor -- giving brian back to you.

Kay: Ok, you know what? Just don't watch anymore. Forget about it. Ignore it. It's obvious that chad is not a good person, simone. He's telling you he loves you and then going after your sister?

Simone: You know what? I got to get down to that courtroom.

Kay: What good would that do? Come on.

Zombie charity: What's it going to hurt? Let her go. Let her confront her two-timing sister.

Kay: No -- I cannot believe that you just did that.

Zombie charity: Why, kay? I told you i was going to bring pain to everybody in harmony, including the russells. Besides, i'm just speaking the truth. When chad told simone he loved her, he thought he was talking to whitney.

Kay: Yeah, well, simone doesn't know that.

Zombie charity: Poor deluded soul. She thinks she's the one that chad loves.

Kay: It's not her fault.

Zombie charity: No, but I want to take advantage of it, watch the fallout. All that pain. I can't wait.

Luis: Theresa, you need to listen to me and you need to listen to me good, ok? You need to stop this right now. You need to tell everyone who really killed julian.

Theresa: I already have, luis.

Luis: No, theresa --

theresa: I did it.

Luis: This is not a game.

Theresa: Don't you think i know that?

Luis: Theresa, whoever you're covering for isn't worth it. Theresa, this is a matter of life and death. This judge isn't kidding. Unless you change your story and you change it fast, you're going to be executed. Oh, theresa, what do you think that's going to do to mama and to everyone else who loves you?

Theresa: I won't be executed!

Luis: Theresa -- what makes you say that? Barring a miracle, you are going to be executed.

Theresa: No, luis.

Luis: Theresa, right after your baby is born, they are going to stick a needle in your arm and it's going to shut down all your vital organs -- for good. Do you understand that? You're not going thave a life with this baby. You're not going to grow up with it or with anyone else, for that matter, because you're going to be dead!

Pilar: Theresa, please tell the truth. You must.

Luis: Theresa, for God's sake, for all our sakes, please, tell us who really killed julian.

Theresa: All right, i'll tell you the truth. I'll tell you the whole story.

Luis: Ok.

Ivy: Oh, God. My God, she's going to tell everyone that ethan killed julian.

Sheridan: So, what was it like back then when you were working with nick?

Brian: Well, like i said, it was let the good times roll. It was a party every night. It was intoxicating. The lifestyle, the money, the wine --

sheridan: The women?

Brian: Yeah. I'm not going to lie to you. I mean, just about every night i had a different woman on each arm. It was like pleasure island -- pure, unadulterated, 18-karat hedonism. But then i started to wise up. Things got crazy. The lights got too bright. The people -- they got too greedy. The music -- it got too loud. All those people care about -- that'sll they care about is just money. And when i realized that and realized that they were living the life of riley off of those poor, innocent people's pension funds, those people's life savings, I quit. I got out.

Sheridan: What did they have to say, all those people you were hanging out with?

Brian: As soon as the money stopped coming in, they dropped me like a hot rock. My so-called girlfriends, so-called business associates -- they just disappeared.

Sheridan: So, do you ever misst?

Brian: No. I mean, the one thing that i didn't reali back then was how lucky I was. Because if i hadn't gotten out of it, i wouldn't have ended up here and i would have never met you. And that would have been the real tragedy in my life. You're my soul mate, diana. Forever.

Liz: I don't know what you're talking about.

Nick: Your mouth keeps saying you're not interested in brian but your eyes keep telling me something totally different. You love him.

Liz: No.

Nick: Oh, yes. And you want that man for yourself, don't you? But diana's got his undivided attention right now.

Liz: Of course she does. He loves her.

Nick: Yeah, but brian used to care about you before diana came along and stole him away, didn't he? I mean, not that i don't understand her allure, shall we say. I mean, that woman is really put together. There's something very intoxicating about diana, almost addictive, and brian's hooked.

Liz: Look, I already said that he loves her, so I don't know what the point of this is.

Nick: Point is, liz, i can change all that. I can take her away.

Liz: You?

Nick: Yeah, me. I can take her away from this island.

Liz: Diana would not leave. She loves brian too much and he would never let her go.

Nick: We'll see. But if i can do it, if i can find a way to take her away, brian will be left all alone, just pining away, just waiting for someone to comfort him, to love him. You think you could be that person, liz? It'd be sweet if you could, wouldn't it? So sweet.

Ivy: This is all your fault, rebecca. You doctored that tape to make it look like ethan killed julian, but he didn'T. Now, if you don't do something quick, it's all going to blow up in our faces.

Rebecca: Yes, theresa. Tell them who did it. Let the person who did this pay for the crime. Let the person who did this die a horrible, grisly death.

Ivy: Oh, yes, theresa. Save yourself. Make the guilty party pay for their crimes.

Ethan: Why, theresa? Why did you turn me in? I could have got off on an appeal. We could have been together for the rest of our lives. Now we're never going to be together. I'll be dead.

Theresa: No! No!

Officer: Hold it!

Theresa: No!

Pilar: Teresita, come away, mija.

Theresa: No!

Miguel: Theresa, it's too late.

Luis: Hey, don't be sad.

Theresa: No! We were going to be together!

Luis: I know you love him, but ethan was ready to let you die for a crime that he committed!

Theresa: No!

Luis: You are better off without him.

Theresa: No, I am not! Luis, I love him!

Luis: Shh.

Officer: Let the drip begin.

Second officer: Coming out.

Theresa: No! No!

Ethan: No.

Theresa: No! No, I can't let him die! Stop it please! No, ethan!

Ethan: No. God, don't --

theresa: Oh, my God, no! Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God. No. Please, please, come back to me. Please.

Luis: Come on.

Theresa: Please! No! No!

Luis: Come on.

Theresa: Please! No!

Luis: Let's go.

Theresa: No! No!

Luis: It's ok. Just tell us the truth, theresa. Tell us the truth now. |

Singer: You are my passion for life

simone: Whitney. What are you doing here?

Whitney: Simone, isn't this awful? I mean, theresa's been sentenced to death.

Simone: I know, it's terrible. But what are you doing here with chad? I saw you two together on tv. I mean, if mom and dad saw you, they're going to be furious.

Chad: No, simone. They won't.

Ethan: Theresa, please. Just tell the truth, for everyone's sake.

Theresa: I will, ethan. I will do the right thing. I'm not going to change my story. I can'T. No one would believe me if i did. There's no point in lying. I'm guilty. I did it.

Rebecca: That was close.

Ivy: Thank God ethan stepped in when he did.

Rebecca: He saved the day -- and himself, even though he didn't have a clue that that's what he was doing.

[Phone rings]

davis: Davis here.

Alistair: Everything going according to plan, davis? No glitches?

Davis: Not a one, alistair. The judge did exactly as you told him. Theresa's going to be executed right after the baby is born.

Alistair: Excellent. Now I know what color to buy for the baby's christening -- black.

Sheridan: I love you so much, brian.

Brian: Whenever you say that, my heart stops.

Sheridan: Well, what do i have to do to get it started again?

Brian: Yep. That did it. And I love you. You are everything that I've ever wanted in life and more. I'm so blessed to have you.

Sheridan: I'm so glad you got away from nick when you did.

Brian: Yeah. He's not a nice guy. That whole lifestyle -- it's corrupt and it's dangerous.

Sheridan: He sure seems convinceto know me from someplace.

Brian: He'll say anything, diana.

Sheridan: What if he did? What if I was a part of that lifestyle -- the corruption, the danger?

Brian: You?

Sheridan: I mean, he says that he knows me from someplace like paris or london with diamonds around my neck.

Brian: Diana --

sheridan: What if I was one of those people that you were talking about, someone that's just interested in money and what it can buy?

Brian: Hey, you could never be like that.

Sheridan: God, what if that's who I really am?

Nick: Your mind's working overtime but you're not saying anything.

Liz: You're the perfect con man, nick.

Nick: I am?

Liz: Tell people what they want to hear and then you try to lure them in. But it's not going to work with diana. She is not going to fall for that smooth talking you hand out.

Nick: You never know about people, liz. Everyone has their price.

Liz: Not diana.

Nick: Why? Because she has amnesia and she wouldn't know what her price is? Wouldn't have any frame of reference?

Liz: No, because she just wouldn't be interested in you, that's all.

Nick: Oh, really? Well, that makes her even more interesting. Doesn't know who she is or where she's from. How often does one of those come along?

Liz: What do you mean?

Nick: She's a fascinating woman, liz, and I love being fascinated. Yeah. There's something about diana i like. Something I want.

Liz: Dream on, nick. She would never be attracted to you. As a matter of fact, she would never even give you a second glance.

Nick: Hey. Don't you ever laugh at me. I'm a man who gets what he wants, and I want diana.

Liz: Take your damn hand off of me. Don't you ever lay a hand on me again. You got that?

Nick: Sorry, liz. Lost it there for a moment. I've got temper issues.

Liz: I don't care what you've got. Don't you ever so much as lay a finger on me.

Nick: You know, I love a woman who will go toe-to-toe with you, especially if that woman's beautiful -- and you sure are that.

Liz: Skip the sweet talk, nick.

Nick: You really are something special, liz, and you deserve the best. And maybe you'll get that with brian -- if i'm successful.

Liz: With diana? Never.

Nick: Don't be too sure, liz. I can be very persuasive, you know. Ask brian. You know, I used to think i needed brian to get what i wanted, but now I'm starting to think long-term and brian doesn't even figure into my plans anymore. Someone else does -- diana. That's right. I think diana's going to be much more valuable, a real treasure.

Sheridan: What if I was some kind of party girl from london or paris?

Brian: Diana, you are nothing but sweet and good.

Sheridan: How else could nick remember me unless i ran with his tawdry crowd?

Brian: Come on.

Sheridan: No, really. I mean, I could have been some awful woman.

Brian: Diana, don't do this to yourself. None of what you are saying is true.

Sheridan: Well, how do you know that?

Brian: Because I know you. And everything you're using to describe yourself -- that's just not you.

Sheridan: You can't be sure of that.

Brian: I am more sure of that than anything else in this world. Look, you have allowed me to get close to you, so close that I can see into your soul, and it is beautiful. You are nothing like any of those women that I used to hang around with. They were in it for one thing -- penthouses on easy street.

Sheridan: I told you i had this feeling that I had money.

Brian: Yeah, honest money. You said you came from money. It's not the kind of money that nick has, that dirty money that he just takes from innocent people.

Sheridan: I want to believe that.

Brian: Well, I can assure you that it's true.

Sheridan: Well, I need to know now more than ever who i am. Nick remembers me, and he is going to tell me everything that he knows so that i can finally find out who --

brian: Diana, no, i said.

Simone: What are you talking about, chad? My parents won't be upset? If they saw what i saw on tv -- whitney hugged up all over you -- they're going to be furious. They still hold you responsible for drugging whitney.

Chad: No, simone, that's not true. Your parents know that it wasn't me.

Simone: How do they know?

Chad: Well, one of your mom's patients confessed to doing it.

Simone: Oh. Well, that's good. But why would anyone want to put drugs in my sister's drink?

Chad: Well, I don't know, but your mom thinks that they're trying to get back at her for something.

Simone: That's weird. But that's great! My mom and dad know that you didn't do it. I knew it all along, of course. And I'm the only one who trusted you. I'm the only one who believed in you.

Chad: Yeah.

Simone: That's why you told me that you loved me, isn't it? It's because i was the only one who always believed in you.

Chad: Well, yeah, yeah, you -- you always did believe in me.

Simone: This is perfect, chad. I mean, now that my parents aren't mad at you, we can start going out.

Chad: Hey, you know what, simone? Shh. We got to talk about that, ok?

Simone: Ok.

Chad: Right now.

Simone: Ok, sure, sure.

Whitney: You know what, chad? Can I just talk to you for one quick second first? Two seconds.

Simone: Sure.

Chad: Ok. All right. Hey, simone, why don't you just wait over there and we'll be right back, all right?

Simone: Oh, oh, ok. See? You and kay were wrong. Chad loves me and we're about to start dating.

Whitney: All I'm saying is i don't think now a good time to tell her.

Chad: She's got to know now, whitney.

Whitney: Her heart is going to be broken. Everyone in here is going to see her. Everybody's going to know.

Chad: All right, you know what? Then i'll take her outside. No one here has to know. I don't want to hurt her, either, all right? But this whole misunderstanding has gone on way too long -- way too long. No. Simone has to know the truth.

Whitney: Ok, maybe we can just wait until after --

chad: Now.

Whitney: Please --

chad: Whitney, she's got to know now. Hey, simone. Let's go outside, ok?

Simone: Ok.

Zombie charity: Goody. It's all going to hit the fan. Just can't wait to see how far it splatters.

Judge: You will escort mrs. Crane back to her cell. Court adjourned.

Bailiff: All rise.

Ethan: Please, just give us a second. Davis, you got to do something here. Get this overturned.

Davis: I wish i could, ethan. It's just not within my power. Theresa insisted on rushing this through the court, and as her attorney, you should know as well as i do that we were compelled to oblige her. We can't just turn around to the judge now and say, "sorry, we'd like to change."

Ethan: All right, then you're fired. All right? I will be defending theresa. I'm taking over this case and I'm going to file an appeal immediately.

Theresa: Ethan --

ethan: Theresa, don't worry, all right? I'm going to get this thrown out somehow. I'm going to take care of you.

Theresa: I know.

Brian: Diana, haven't you heard a word i said? Nick is nobody you want to mess with. He's a liar, a cheat, and he fights dirty.

Sheridan: Yeah, but how else am i going to find out about my past?

Brian: I don't know, but all he's going to do is try to scam you. You can't believe anything he says -- and i mean anything.

Sheridan: It's just so hard not knowing who I am or where i come from.

Brian: I'm sure it is. But stay away from him, ok? We're both going to stay away from him.

Sheridan: How are we going to do that while he's still here on the island?

Brian: Because he's here to collect a gambling debt from someone else. It has nothing to do with us. We don't have anything to do with that score.

Nick: There you are. I've been looking all over for you guys. Starting to think you were avoiding me.

Brian: We are.

Nick: Ouch. That really hurts my feelings. You know, but in my line of business, you can't afford to wear your heart on your sleeve, brian.

Brian: We don't give a damn about your business, nick.

Nick: You should. You know, in fact, i insist.

Brian: What are you talking about?

Nick: The reason why i came here.

Brian: To collect the gambling debt -- that's what you told me.

Nick: That's why.

Brian: Well, it wasn't me because I know better than to lie down with dogs like you.

Nick: Did I say it was you, brian? Uh-uh. No. I'm talking about your lady friend here -- diana.

Brian: Yeah, that's a good one. Like she would ever gamble in one of your clubs.

Nick: Oh, but she did, brian. And I'm here to collect.

Ivy: Any moment now theresa will go into labor, and once that child is born --

rebecca: Then it's

hasta la vista, taco-sita.

Kay: You're not going to hurt my friend, you --

zombie charity: Demon from hell? That's what I am, kay. A demon that you created. Pain and suffering are my stock and trade, but i do think that simone will appreciate my telling the truth. Once she finds out that whitney betrayed her, stole the man she loves right out from under her, she'll feel justified in anything she does. She might even be mad enough for murder.

Kay: Murder?

Zombie charity: Sistercide.

Simone: It is going to be so great, chad. We're going to be able to do everything together. Go everywhere. This is great --

chad: Simone, shh. Listen to me, please.

Simone: Ok.

Chad: Ok? There's something you need to know first.

Simone: Ok. What?

Chad: Um -- this is something I should have talked to you about a long, long time ago. But the truth is i didn't --

[theresa screams]

pilar: Theresa?

Luis: What's wrong?

Miguel: What is it?

Theresa: Oh. Mama, I think I'm in labor!

Theresa: It's ok.
