Passions Transcript Wednesday 11/13/02
Rebecca: You can't just leave. You can't just hand ethan to her.
Gwen: No, mother, I can see the writing on the wall. And for whatever reason, ethan has chosen theresa. And I am not going to crawl to him. I'm not going to beg him to take me back. That is theresa's M.O.
Rebecca: But you don't even know that he's chosen her. Why don't you wait till you find out for sure? There's still time.
Gwen: No, mother, there is no more time. I have got to finally get on with my life.
Gwen: Sheila. Hi, it's gwen hotchkiss. I'm fine, fine, thank you. Sheila, I know it's late, but I've been thinking about your offer, and I've decided to take it. Yes, yes, I will -- I'll call you tomorrow and we'll go over the details. Yes. Me, too. Thank you. Good night.
Rebecca: What -- what's this all about? What offer?
Gwen: I was offered a job, and I'm going to take it.
Rebecca: What kind of job? Where?
Gwen: In manhattan. If I'm not going to marry ethan, I'm going to move to new york.
Rebecca: Gwen, you can't just up and leave for new york.
Gwen: Why not? I have a great job offer, and there's no reason for me to stay here anymore. Ethan's made his choice, and he's chosen theresa. Mother, I have got to get on with my life.
Rebecca: Look, as I said before -- look, you don't know for sure that he's chosen theresa.
Gwen: Mother --
rebecca: You don't know that the reason he went to theresa's room was to propose to her.
Gwen: Get real, ok? What else could it possibly mean?
Rebecca: Well, maybe he went up there to break it to her gently that he's going to ask you to marry him.
Gwen: You know what? You keep dreaming while I keep packing.
Rebecca: Just stop this and just try and think here.
Gwen: What is to think about? Mother, this is completely out of my hands now and on theresa's finger.
Rebecca: Not yet. There is still time.
Gwen: No. It's a fait accompli.
Rebecca: Gwen, if you run off to new york, it is going to be a mistake that you are going to have to live with the rest of your life. Give ethan a chance. Give yourself a chance. Plead your case just the way theresa did. Fight fire with fire.
Theresa: Ooh, I'm sorry I'm babbling, ethan. Let me just put little ethan down, and we can talk, ok?
Theresa: This is it, baby. Ethan's either going to propose or he's going to say adios. Wish me luck. Oh, my -- this is it. Ethan's going to ask me to marry him. And then you, ethan, and I are going to be a family. Ok. Oh, good boy.
Theresa: The ring.
Theresa: You haven't given it to gwen yet.
Ethan: No. No, I haven'T.
Theresa: Well, why not? I mean, when we were at the hospital, you said that the ring was for gwen and you were going to propose to her. So why haven't you?
Sheridan: You know, antonio was having some pain tonight. A couple of memes, I could really tell that he was in trouble.
Luis: Hey, hey, hey, hey. I'm concerned about antonio, too, ok? Look, I don't want to hurt my brother. But I also don't want the woman I love sharing the same bed with him every night, ok? The only way to avoid that is to tell him the truth.
Antonio: The truth about what, luis?
Luis: Ahem. Antonio, I want you to sit down.
Antonio: Why? What's liz doing here and dr. Russell?
Luis: We're all here, antonio. It's all your friends and your family. We've got something to tell you, ok? It's something important. Come on.
Antonio: What are you doing?
Luis: Let's sit.
Antonio: I don't want to sit. Just tell me what's going on, luis.
Luis: Look, antonio, I am going to tell you, but I really think you should just have a seat, ok?
Eve: Antonio, luis is right.
Antonio: Just tell me what's going on.
Sheridan: Oh --
antonio: Sheridan --
luis: Sheridan -- hey, you ok? You all right?
Sheridan: Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. I just got a little lightheaded, that's all.
Antonio: Here, I'll get you some water.
Sheridan: No, no, I'm ok, really. I don't need anything.
Antonio: You sure you're all right?
Antonio: So go ahead -- tell me whatever you have to tell me, luis.
Theresa: Ethan? Did you hear me?
Theresa: So why haven't you given gwen the ring?
Ethan: Because I want to make sure that I'm doing the right thing this time.
Theresa: I'm not sure that I follow.
Ethan: Everybody I've talked to about getting engaged -- sam, julian -- they've all told me to make certain that I'm marrying the right woman.
Theresa: I see.
Ethan: And I agree with that. I -- I don't want to make a mistake --
Ethan: I mean, start building a life with the wrong woman -- not just for my sake, but for hers and for the children and our entire family.
Theresa: So are you saying that you don't think gwen's the right woman?
Gwen: You really think ethan could be just letting theresa down easy?
Rebecca: Yeah. Think about it. Remember how he came to you first to tell you that he had to break off your engagement so he could marry theresa? I think the same thing is happening here.
Gwen: I don't know.
Rebecca: Gwen, there's only one way you're going to find out. You have to go into theresa's room and interrupt them.
Gwen: No, I can't do that.
Rebecca: Why not? You said theresa interrupted you at least a dozen times when you thought ethan was going to propose to you.
Gwen: Yes, she did. But I'm not like her. I will not be that manipulative.
Rebecca: Well, it is high time you were. Look, if you want ethan to be your man, if you want to spend the rest of your life with him, then you have to stop being this goody-goody little society girl and get down and dirty. Look, do anything to get what you want. Anything. Whatever it takes.
Luis: I love you, bro. You know that.
Antonio: I know that you're making me really uncomfortable.
Luis: Look, we don't mean to.
Antonio: Looking at me with all this dread in your eyes.
Pilar: Antonio --
antonio: What? Mama, what's going on? Why are you all here?
Luis: It's because of sheridan and me. That's why we're all here.
Mrs. Wallace: How much longer before your plan to steal luis gets blown sky-high? What is it, another five, 10 minutes?
Beth: Shh! Mom, be quiet.
Mrs. Wallace: The moment antonio finds out about sheridan and luis, knows the truth, he's going to keel over dead, kaput. And then there'll be nothing standing between sheridan and luis being together.
Beth: And you say that I'm the cruel one around here? Wanting antonio dead is disgusting.
Mrs. Wallace: Oh --
beth: It's hideous, mother.
Mrs. Wallace: Yeah, right. Like you give a hoot. All you care about is havi luis to yourself. Well, you won't get him because you're a wretched girl and you don't deserve him.
Antonio: Ok, now, will somebody tell me what this is all about?
Pilar: Mijo, you just need to remain calm and be strong.
Antonio: For what? Why? Why does everybody look so depressed? Why is everyone being like this?
Luis: Antonio --
sheridan: Luis, wait.
Antonio: No, sheridan, let him finish. I want to hear what he has to say.
Luis: I wish there was an easy way to say this.
Antonio: Damn it, luis, just spit it out.
Luis: All right.
Antonio: Oh, wait a minute. I know what this is about.
Pilar: You do?
Antonio: Yeah. Of course. That's the whole reason that dr. Russell's here -- because she told you all the results of my latest test, didn't she?
Eve: No, I --
sheridan: Tests? What tests?
Antonio: Sheridan, you don't have to pretend like you don't know for my sake.
Sheridan: What did dr. Russell tell you?
Antonio: She told me the results of my latest test -- that I'm not going to be living as long as I thought.
sheridan: Oh, antonio --
antonio: That's ok, sheridan. You don't have to pretend like eve didn't tell you.
Eve: Antonio, I --
antonio: Itit's ok, dr. Russell.
Eve: But I --
antonio: Really. Really, it's ok. I don't mind that you told the people I love.
Eve: No --
antonio: I would have told them myself.
Eve: Antonio, I --
antonio: I know, I know. I couldn't keep something like this from them. I mean, I know I only have a short time left, and that time is very precious to me, and I do want to spend it with the people that I love.
Liz: Antonio --
antonio: It's ok, liz. It's ok.
Sheridan: Eve, antonio must have misunderstood the test results.
Pilar: He must have misunderstood what you told him, right?
Eve: I wish I could just say this was all a misunderstanding.
Pilar: Oh, God.
Sheridan: So it's true?
Eve: I'm afraid so.
Pilar: Wait. I know that he was having some test done earlier tonight, but I didn't know the results were --
sheridan: His condition is getting worse?
Eve: It's deteriorating much more rapidly than we thought at first. He hasn't long to live.
Rebecca: What are you waiting for?
Go. At least listen in. Put your ear to the door and find out what they're saying.
Gwen: Mother, I don't want to be a snoop, ok?
Rebecca: This is not what you want. It's what you must do. This is dog eat dog, and you have to go in there and swallow that little chihuahua bitch.
Theresa: Is that what you're saying, ethan? That gwen isn't the right woman for you?
Ethan: It's a complicated situation.
Theresa: Well, how is it complicated?
Ethan: You know how I feel about honesty, theresa.
Theresa: Yes, I do.
Ethan: And trust.
Theresa: They're the most important things to you, ethan.
Ethan: And I trust gwen completely.
Theresa: Well --
ethan: What is it?
Ethan: No, tell me.
Theresa: All this talk about trust and honesty --
Theresa: You don't think that you can get that from me.
Ethan: Theresa --
theresa: I was foolish to get my hopes up.
Gwen: I think he's choosing me, mother.
Rebecca: See, I told you.
Theresa: After all that we have been through, I still can't be completely honest with you, ethan.
Theresa: I'm still a liar.
Ethan: I -- I don't understand --
theresa: Ethan, you are the best, and you deserve the best, and I want that for you. I really do.
Ethan: I'm still not getting what you --
theresa: I -- I tried really hard. You know, I made all these resolutions. But I ended up breaking them because I was afraid of losing you. I lied, ethan. I knew that you didn't give gwen the engagement ring. I saw her tonight in the solarium. I saw that she didn't have a ring on her finger, and I asked her about it. We got into this big confrontation. And now here I am asking you about it like I don't know the answer. I don't know why I do this, ethan. You're the one person in this world that I cannot be completely open and honest with, and I know how much you hate that in me. And God knows that when it comes to love, I'm my own worst enemy. You know, whenever I lied to you, ethan, I thought I had a good reason. But the one thing that I never, ever lied about is being in love with you, and you have to believe that.
Rebecca: What are they saying?
Gwen: How can I hear if you're talking?
Rebecca: Oh --
theresa: I guess I slip into this bad habit I have of not being honest with you because I love you so much. Pretty much all of my life, I've dreamed about being with you, loving you, wanting you to love me, and you did. We were together.
Ethan: Until I found out --
theresa: That I had lied to you.
Ethan: More than a few times.
Theresa: And then when I had lost you, I was so desperate to get you back that I resorted to more lies. But I love you, ethan, and I want you in my life so badly. But now -- even though I'm sure that you're going to pick gwen, it would mean the worldo me if you could just forgive me. Can you find it in your heart to do that, ethan? I won't blame you if you can'T.
Ethan: You would do anything for me.
Theresa: Don't ever doubt that.
Ethan: Even being put to death to spare my life, throwing yourself down an elevator shaft to save me.
Theresa: And I'd do it again, gladly. I'd gladly sacrifice my own life for you, ethan. Well -- I said it all. I bared my soul. Not that it makes any diffenence. You don't have to believe it. You don't have to trust another word out of my mouth. If you won't, I'll understand.
Gwen: Go ahead, ethan, tell her. Tell her that you'll never believe another word out of her lying mouth.
Ethan: You may have made a breakthrough here, theresa. It took a lot of honesty to do what you just did -- admit to me that you knew I hadn't given gwen the ring. You didn't have to tell me that, but you did.
Antonio: Come on now. None of that. I've accepted what's going on with me. Actually, you know, I'm pretty happy -- mostly because of this woman right here. Sheridan, I never knew that someone could bring another person so much joy in their life. It's because of you that I came back to harmony, to introduce you to my loved ones. You make whatever it is that's going on with my brain -- you make it bearable. And for that, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Get no respect. so, it was called cattle point. Of the nation, and subsequentlyne of th here. Your cruise director, ron ç
singer: You are my passion for life
mrs. Wallace: The clock is ticking down on you, bethie.
Beth: Would you stop it.
Mrs. Wallace: Won't be long now before antonio is six feet under, and then the one who's going to be hugging and kissing sheridan is going to be luis.
Beth: Be quiet, please.
Mrs. Wallace: So say good-bye, lover boy, and hello, bedpan.
T.C.: You really care for him, don't you?
T.C.: Antonio. I can tell.
Liz: We were very close on st. Lisa's when he lived at the hotel. Very close.
Antonio: I just want to tell all of you that I love you very much, and I want to thank you all for your help and your support. It's really wonderful having friends and family like you. And dr. Russell, you're the best. Not only are you a wonderful physician, I also consider you a new friend. And I just wanted to thank you for being open and honest with me in telling my family and friends about my condition. And liz -- we're such good friends. We've had such wonderful times together, haven't we?
Antonio: The way you nursed me through after my race car accident -- I never would've made it through without you.
Liz: Well, I never would've made it through all those storms and hurricanes without you.
Antonio: We weathered a lot, didn't we?
Liz: I wish I had it all back. I wouldn't waste a single second of it. I would stick to you like glue.
Antonio: Don't say that. It's ok that you pulled away from me, and you always said that there was someone else out there for us. Well, I found my soul mate in sheridan. And I know that there's a soul mate out there for you, too, somewhere.
Antonio: And, mama, I'm so sorry for running out on the family all those years ago the way that I did.
Pilar: Please, just don't think about that now.
Antonio: It's the one regret that I have in my life. I didn't get to spend all the time that I should have with my brothers and sisters. I wish I could turn back the hands of time.
Pilar: I never felt like you left, mijo, because you were always in my heart.
Antonio: I know you didn't, and that means a lot to me. I felt that.
Antonio: And, beth, I wish I could turn back the hands of time for you.
Antonio: Because I messed everything up for you. If I hadn't left, by now you would be mrs. Luis lopez fitzgerald. Because when I left, I put all the family responsibility all on luis, and I'm very sorry. I just hope that you guys can make up what wonderful times that you missed together. I hope you can make them up very soon.
Beth: Don't worry about me, antonio.
Antonio: And, luis, I owe you the biggest apology of all.
Antonio: Yeah. I dumped everything on you, right square on your shoulders, and you took care of everything.
Luis: Hey, you just forget about it, ok? Just -- it's nothing.
Antonio: I want to make it up to you. And if I can't do it here on earth, I hope to do it wherever I end up.
Theresa: What are you saying, ethan? Have you changed your mind about trusting me? Do you think that you can believe me now?
Ethan: I'm closer -- closer to trusting you than I've ever been.
Theresa: It's so good of you to say that.
Ethan: It's the truth.
Theresa: I know, and I'm very grateful to hear it, even if it is too late for us.
Ethan: No. It's not too late.
Theresa: What do you mean?
Ethan: Look at me. I'm here talking to you, not to gwen.
Gwen: No, no.
Gwen: No --
Gwen: I lost him.
Rebecca: But -- you can't be serious -- no.
Gwen: This is all over.
Rebecca: No. Tell me what he said.
Gwen: He picked theresa.
Rebecca: He said that? He actually said that? I can't believe it.
Gwen: I'm just going to finish packing for new york.
Rebecca: No, no. You certainly are not. My child is not just going to call it quits, is not going to give up.
Gwen: "Give up"?
Rebecca: Yeah. A hotchkiss never does. It is not in our nature.
Gwen: Mother, how can I possibly compete with a woman who has gone to death row for the man she loves?
Rebecca: You can and you must.
Gwen: Mother, she threw herself down an elevator shaft to pull ethan back to safety.
Rebecca: I don't care if she leaps tall buildings in a single bound. She cannot have your man.
Gwen: Can't you see? This is impossible. The battle has been lost.
Rebecca: Never. No, never. You never show the white flag. You know, I think there was a mix-up at the hospital. I think they switched the babies. I think pilar got my baby and I got pilar'S.
Gwen: Mother, please.
Rebecca: You come from a long line of women --
gwen: Yeah, women who never give up. How many times have I heard that before?
Rebecca: And you are going to hear it again -- because we always get what we want and we never say die, so snap out of it and stop theresa from stealing your man.
Gwen: No, mother. I cannot do this anymore.
Rebecca: Fine. I'll take care of it myself. But, remember, you forced me to do it. Ah!
Theresa: Did you hear that?
Theresa: Well, what was it?
Ethan: I'm not sure.
Theresa: Think it was somebody crying out?
Gwen: Knock it off, mother. This isn't going to work. No more tricks, ok? Come on.
Rebecca: Just go get ethan and tell him that your mother has had a heart attack. Oh, and also tell him that it's congenital. It has nothing to do with weight or age.
Gwen: Get up.
Rebecca: Just go tell him that we have to go to the hospital and you're going to be in the E.R. For hours.
Rebecca: And then you just make sure that theresa is home with the bambino.
Gwen: Mother, I am not going to stoop to any trashy manipulations to get ethan back. It's pathetic.
Rebecca: But effective.
Gwen: Mother, if we're not meant to be together, I really just want to get on with my life.
Rebecca: You know, you need to have your head examined. You -- you are letting happiness just slip through your fingers.
Gwen: Do you really think that it's going to make me happy to force some man to be with me when he doesn't want to? Look, if ethan prefers theresa, so be it, because I can't do this anymore. Look, the sooner I get to new york and start this job, the sooner I can actually start to feel good about myself.
Rebecca: You can't move to new york. I won't let you.
Gwen: Oh, please.
Rebecca: Well, it's a big, bad city. It chews up young, innocent people and then just spits them out.
Gwen: Hmm. Well, then, I guess I'm off the hook because I lost my innocence a long time ago.
Rebecca: Don't be glib.
Gwen: Don't you be ridiculous. Mother, you love new york. You go there every chance you can get. They know your name in all the stores on fifth avenue. You adore the theater, the museums.
Rebecca: But it's not the same as living there. Ok, and if you're going to move to a big city, how about chicago? That is a great town -- the city of the big shoulders. Oh, and all the big-shouldered men who live there -- ah. I have had such fabulous times in chi-town. Oh, and there's a cold breeze coming off lake michigan. And you have to snuggle up to some warm, hard, muscular arms. Ooh, and the sweaty locker room of the chicago bulls.
Gwen: Mother, stop it.
Rebecca: What? Oh, oh, where was I? You can't move to new york.
Gwen: Mother, all I'm saying is we're going to get plenty of opportunities to see each other.
Rebecca: But it's too dangerous.
Gwen: I'm a lot tougher than I look. You know, battling theresa has definitely hardened me. I am ready for whatever new york has to throw my way.
Rebecca: Ok, fine, then go to new york. You just play the businesswoman to the hilt. You just eat, sleep, and breathe business. You can become a captain of industry. But when you come home, you are going to come home all alone, and the only thing that is going to keep you warm is the bottom line.
Gwen: I think I can do a lot better than that.
Rebecca: Well, look at all those girls on "sex and the city." They're not happy. Look, being alone is a lonely existence. That is no way to live your life, trust me.
Antonio: It's getting late.
Sheridan: You look tired.
Antonio: Yeah, I'm starting to feel like I'm running on empty, but I think I've got enough gas left in the tank to get us back to the house and love the woman of my dreams. Thank you so much for everything you've done for me.
Sheridan: Antonio, I haven't --
antonio: No. You are the light of my life. It's your face that I want to see every night before I go to bed. It's your face that I want to see every morning when I wake up.
Sheridan: Antonio, I --
Luis: I'll go. No -- hey, hey, I'll go.
Pilar: Antonio --
luis: I know what this is about.
Pilar: It'll be all right, mijo. Come. Let them have a few moments alone.
T.C.: Liz, I had no idea that you and antonio had such a deep, meaningful relationship.
Liz: Well, it was my fault it didn't work out. We had real feelings for each other. Something always got in my way. Something always prevented me from committing to him.
T.C.: That's too bad.
Liz: I wasn't so aware at the time, but now -- now I realize what was going on. A hurt I suffered years ago prevented me from ever finding happiness in life.
T.C.: Does this hurt have to do with this horrible woman who you said lives here in harmony now?
Liz: Yes. She did unspeakable things to me. Pretty much ruined my life.
Mrs. Wallace: Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. Shh. Do you hear that clock tick, bethie? It's in stereophonic sound just for you.
Beth: Shut up.
Mrs. Wallace: Oh, your days with luis are just about ended, and your days of being able to bear a child are just about kaput. Looks like you're a loser right across the boards.
Beth: If you don't shut your mouth --
mrs. Wallace: Uh-uh, uh-uh -- temper, temper. You certainly don't want everyone to hear what a really wicked witch you are, hmm?
Theresa: I can't tell you how glad I am that we had this talk, ethan.
[Baby ethan fusses]
Ethan: Somebody wants his mommy.
Theresa: Hello. Oh, mommy is here, little ethan. Hi. Did you have a bad dream? Yeah? Mommy's going to make sure that you have nothing but sweet dreams from now on, ok? Yes, she is. Yes, mommy loves you, little ethan.
Theresa: I -- I hate to seem pushy, but since you haven't given gwen the engagement ring yet, am I allowed to have some hope that we might have a future together? It is beautiful.
Ethan: Yes, it is.
Theresa: Have you decided who you're going to give it to?
Ethan: Yes, I have.
Gwen: No, I am not doing this anymore. I can'T.
Rebecca: Shh, shh, shh. It's gotten awful quiet in there.
Gwen: Maybe they went to find a justice of the peace.
Rebecca: Oh, that is not funny.
Gwen: Do you see me laughing?
Rebecca: If you don't do something, he is going to marry the wrong woman. You got to stop him now.
Gwen: Stop it, mother.
Rebecca: You are already out of time, gwen. If you don't do something, he's going to marry someone else.
Rebecca: What's wrong?
Gwen: I -- I just feel really sick.
Rebecca: Well, just shake it off. This is no time to go wimpy on me.
Gwen: I feel really dizzy all of a sudden.
Rebecca: Oh, yes! Gwen, that is perfect. You are so good. This is better -- you have the heart attack. Oh, I'm going to go get ethan and bring him in here.
Gwen: No, don'T. Oh --
T.C.: You know, it's times like these that makes me realize how incredibly lucky we all are. All of our friends around us seem to have so many problems, but I've got a lovely marriage and perfect children.
Mrs. Wallace: Hey, bethie, isn't this a joyous occasion? Because everyone is being just so honest around here, huh? Which means that no matter what, you will never get luis. Because even if they don't tell antonio the truth and sheridan winds up, you know, staying over, just be a matter of time before the poor guy drops dead. And then -- then luis will be right there, ready to sweep up the grieving sheridan in his strong, strong, loving arms.
Beth: If you don't zip it, I'm going to shut your mouth permanently.
Antonio: What could sheridan and luis be doing out there? It's been a while now.
Pilar: I'm sure they're just talking.
Antonio: You know what? I'm going to go see.
Pilar: Antonio, please, just let them --
antonio: No, I'll be right back.
Liz: Oh --
eve: I got him. There you go.
Luis: Sheridan --
Luis: You have got to go back in there.
Sheridan: No. I can't and I won't not after what just happened, after all the beautiful things that antonio said to each of us. I cannot tell him the truth tonight. It would be just -- it would be too cruel.
Luis: No, it's going to be too cruel if we don't tell him. Now, look, sheridan, I don't want to hurt my brother any more than you do, but we can't go around sneaking behind his back and lying to him, ok? Sheridan, he has got to know the truth. We've got to tell him, all right?
