Simone's voice: Dear diary, I finally know how I'm going to break up Whitney and Chad.

Whitney: Gosh, I wish you were upstairs just now. Liz was just telling us about her horrible older sister and how she completely ruined her life.

Chad: How she ruined Liz's life?

Whitney: Liz was the weaker, younger sister, and she got betrayed by her older sister. She's been carrying this hurt around with her for all these years. And the only thing I could think about was Simone. I can't let this happen to her, Chad. You understand me? I just can't. 3E5BE7B6.JPG

Chad: It won't.

Simone: Good. Now I know exactly what I can use to keep Whitney and Chad apart. If you think you're going to wreck my life the way Liz's sister wrecked hers, you're sadly mistaken. I'm going to end up with Chad, not you.

***************************************

Liz: It's not that I hate my sister so much for abandoning me and running off with her rich lover. I hate my sister for the real crime that she was involved in.

Liz: Incest.

T.C.: My God.

Eve: No.

Liz: I don't even like saying the word, much less remembering. I've kept this locked up so long inside of me. I never even said the word out loud until now. But I need you all to understand just how deep my sister's betrayal went and why I can never forgive her. 3E5BE81B.JPG

David: Do you know what she's talking about?

Eve: I don't have any idea.

Liz: I want you all to hear just how much my sister hurt me and why I can't let go of the unspeakable things that I suffered because of her.

T.C.: Are you saying that your sister --

Liz: No, T.C. not my sister. My father. My sister left home, and my father started abusing me -- physically. He stole my innocence. He ruined me. He ruined me forever.

***************************************

Sheridan: Wait a minute. Are you sure he moved his hand?

Luis: As sure as I'm on the phone with you now. Sheridan, Hank saw it, too. This is our miracle. Antonio is coming out of his coma. He's coming back to us. 3E5BE85E.JPG

Sheridan: Thank God. I'll be right there. I don't believe it. Antonio moved his hand!

Beth: Neither can I.

Sheridan: God heard our prayers. Antonio is getting better.

Beth: Ok, but listen. I don't want to put a damper on your high hopes, but just be careful about getting too excited, ok? I know it's great that Antonio moved his hand, but I just wouldn't really call it a major miracle.

Sheridan: Are you kidding? I would. I mean, this is a real breakthrough. I just know it's a sign that everything's going to be all right. I've got to get over there.

Beth: Well, I'm coming with you, then. 3E5BE87C.JPG

Sheridan: Ok.

Beth: Damn it to hell. I was so close to getting rid of her and having Luis for myself.

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

Luis: Come on, bro. Don't stop now, all right? Look, if you can move your hand, you can do more. Antonio.

Hank: The neurologist is on his way. Did he do anything else? 3E5BE945.JPG

Luis: No, not yet. But I got a good feeling about this, Hank. I think he's coming back to us.

Pilar: Luis, what happened? One of the nurses came to get me in the chapel.

Luis: Well, mom, you're not going to believe it.

Pilar: What?

Luis: Actually, come to think of it, maybe you are. He moved! He moved his hand! I think 'he's waking up.

Pilar: Dear God -- I knew he would hear my prayers. Mijo, it's mama. I'm right by your side. Can you hear me? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. It's a miracle. Antonio has come back to us.

***************************************

[Knock on door]

Whitney: Who is it? 3E5BE974.JPG

Chad: It's me. May I come in?

Whitney: Um -- sure. Hurry. Hey. Nobody saw you?

Chad: Not a soul. I mean, your parents are both out, and Simone's door is shut tight.

Chad: What's wrong?

Whitney: Well, I hardly slept wink last night, and I was -- I was a mess at practice this morning.

Chad: You're still thinking about Liz's sad story, aren't you?

Whitney: I can't help it. It's like hearing what my future's going to be.

Chad: Look, just because Liz's sister did her wrong and she hasn't forgiven her doesn't mean that's going to happen between you and Simone. 3E5BE99E.JPG

Whitney: Why wouldn't it? What I'm doing is even worse. Simone loves you, and I'm carrying on with you right behind her back.

Chad: Look, I wouldn't call what we're doing carrying on. I'm in love with you. And as far as I knew, you felt the meme way.

Whitney: I love you with all my heart. But it doesn't mean that I'm not scared. If Simone were to find out about us before we were ready to go public, it would kill her. And I can't do that to my baby sister.

Simone: That's what I'm counting on, Whitney. Time to make sure you keep feeling that way.

***************************************

Liz: My sister and I had always been so sheltered that I didn't know the first thing about sex. Nothing happened till she left home. That's when daddy started visiting my bedroom after ma went to sleep. The first time I was confused and scared, so I put it out of my mind. I knew it was wrong, so I just thought I imagined it. But then he started visiting regularly after mama went to sleep and he would stay up drinking. I cried and I begged him to stop. But he just said to hush up, that mama would wake up and she would beat me for being a horrible, bad girl. The only person I could turn to was my sister. But she'd run off, and I didn't know where she was. 3E5BEA1C.JPGMy sister was the only person that I could imagine telling something so shameful to. We were always so close and we told each other everything, but she was gone. I felt so helpless. I couldn't get him to stop. He hurt me. He hurt me so bad --

Eve: No, you are lying. Dad would never do something like that!

T.C.: Did I just hear you call Liz's father "dad"?

T.C.: What's going on here? Why did you call Liz's father "dad"?

Ivy: I don't think Eve meant it the way it came out. I know what she meant. She meant that she can't believe any father would ever do anything so horrible to any child.

T.C.: Yeah, neither can I. Liz, I am so sorry. 3E5BEB46.JPG

Liz: You really don't believe me, Eve?

Eve: I just -- I just don't know what to say.

Liz: I'm not sure that there's anything you can say. But it's true. My father hurt me in ways that I still can't speak about. So if you think that I could make up something like that --

Eve: No. Oh, God, no.

Liz: Maybe now you all understand why I hate my sister so much.

T.C.: Liz, you don't have to explain, ok? Everybody in here understands. But what I don't understand is, when you found your sister at that nightclub, didn't you tell her what had happened?

Liz: She didn't give me the chance. She was involved in her new life, so she pretty much sent me packing. Drugs, the man she was sleeping with, and the alcohol -- those were obviously way more important than the little sister that she left back home. My sister was having way too much fun to help me. 3E5BEB9F.JPG

***************************************

Sheridan: Is it true? Is Antonio coming out of his coma?

Luis: Looks like it.

Sheridan: Oh, my --

Luis: Sheridan, he moved his hand. And then when mama spoke to him, he took her hand in his.

Sheridan: Could the experimental drug finally be kicking in?

Luis: Looks like it. Sheridan, this is what we've been waiting for.

***************************************

Eve: Your sister didn't know what was going on at home. If she had, she would have done everything in her power to rescue you. You must know that.

Liz: All I know is what actually happened. My sister turned me away when I needed her most. That hurt. That hurt just as much as what t my dad did. Back then, I didn't blame anyone but myself. Couldn't even look in the mirror, I felt so dirty and ashamed. So many times, I would go to sleep at night praying that I would never wake up. All I wanted to do was die. My sister might as well have put a gun to my head and shot me. Sometimes I wish she had. 3E5BECE6.JPG

***************************************

Whitney: Simone is a lot more fragile than she seems, ok?

Chad: I don't buy it. She's young, but she strikes me as a true survivor. I mean, yeah, she's been knocked down a couple times, but she always got back up fighting. You want to know what I think? I think we need to stop treating her like a baby. Look, I don't care what you say. Simone is a lot tougher than you and your mother give her credit for -- and stubborn, too. Look, I'm telling you, Whitney, your sister's grown up enough to handle the truth about us. We're just not giving her the chance to.

Whitney: Well -- ok. How can I take that risk, huh?

Chad: How can you not? What do you want to do, keep lying to her, sneaking around behind her back? That's not right for anyone. You know that as well as I do. 3E5BED0A.JPG

Whitney: I know. So you're saying that I should just -- just tell her, right?

Chad: I'm not going to make you do something you don't want. Simone is your sister, so you have to make the choice. I'm just saying, if I were you, I'd tell her right now.

Whitney: Oh, God. Maybe I should just -- just tell her. You're right. It's time.

Chad: Way past time, if you ask me.

Whitney: Ok. Well, wish me luck, then.

Chad: You want me to go with you?

Whitney: No. No, I think this is something that I need do on my own. Like you said, she's my sister.

Whitney: I can do this. I can tell Simone the truth about Chad and me. 3E5BED58.JPG

Whitney: Oh, my God.

***************************************

Sheridan: Oh, I was so afraid that I had made the wrong choice by telling them to administer the experimental drug.

Luis: Well, it looks like it was more than right. Dr. Wirtz.

Dr. Wirtz: I hear there's been some change in your brother's condition.

Luis: He moved his hand on his own.

Dr. Wirtz: And has he spoken or communicated in any other way with any of you?

Luis: No, but it was obvious when he took my mother's hand that he knew who she was.

Dr. Wirtz: I'm afraid we can't jump to that conclusion quite so hastily.

Pilar: I know that he knows I was here. That's got to be a good sign, doctor, no? 3E5BED7D.JPG

Dr. Wirtz: Of course it is. I just don't want you to get your hopes up too high. Your son's gesture -- what appeared to be his taking your hand -- may have been merely a reflexive response.

Luis: No, no -- Dr. Wirtz, I'm telling you, you should have seen it.

Pilar: He knew what he was doing. I could tell.

Dr. Wirtz: If I may finish -- when the muscles have been inactive for an unusually long time, they can sometimes have involuntary spasms which we -- because we're so desperate for signs of progress -- take to be something more significant.

Pilar: Well, that's not what happened here. He knew that it was me. I think he still does know that I'm here. 3E5BEDA4.JPG

Dr. Wirtz: I'd like that to be so as much as you would, Mrs. Lopez Fitzgerald, but we can't determine that definitively without a full examination.

Sheridan: How long will that take?

Dr. Wirtz: Not long. I don't want to dampen your hopes but until Antonio actually regains consciousness or speaks, there's no reason to believe he's making a recovery.

***************************************

3E5BEE5B.JPG

Whitney: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. What have you done? Honey, wake up! Wake up, please! Please! I'll never forgive myself if anything --

Simone: Hey.

Whitney: Oh, God.

Simone: Oh.

Whitney: Here. Get up.

Simone: Hey, what are you doing?

Whitney: Thank God, baby. Are you ok? Are you all right? Let me call mom so she can come over here --

Simone: For what?

Whitney: And take a look at you.

Simone: I don't need mom. What's wrong with you, Whitney?

Whitney: The aspirin -- just tell me, how many did you take, ok? 3E5BEE79.JPG

Simone: You thought I OD'ed on aspirin?

Whitney: Well, I came in here and you're looking so still, and this bottle is empty. What did you do?

Simone: I couldn't get any sleep last night, so -- I've been tired all day and I've had this raging headache, so I took a couple of aspirin. When they didn't work, I took a few more.

Whitney: Honey, you can't do that. It's dangerous to take more than it says on the bottle. Honey, you know that.

Simone: I didn't think I took that many. It just feels like someone has taken a hammer to my head.

Whitney: Well, why? Why couldn't you sleep last t? What's going on? 3E5BEEAF.JPG

Simone: You want the truth?

Whitney: Look, I wouldn't have asked you if I didn't. What's up?

Simone: You and Chad. I couldn't stop thinking about you two, finding you two together the way that I did.

Chad: What the hell --

Whitney: Simone?

***************************************

Liz: The day my sister abandoned me, every hope and dream I ever had was shattered. Can't tell you the number of times I thought about taking my own life.

T.C.: Liz, suicide never solved anything.

Liz: I know. I was raised that way, too. Maybe that's why I never did it. But, still, sometimes I can't help but wonder if somehow I was marked at birth, that if some part of me was so bad or wicked that I deserved to lose my sister and I deserved what my father did to me. 3E5BEF01.JPG

Eve: Don't say that. Don't ever say that.

Liz: Why not, Eve? I have never had a healthy, happy, lasting relationship. The closest that I got was with Antonio. I loved him. I really did.

T.C.: But I don't understand why you two broke up.

Liz: It was all my fault. I and, Antonio needed someone who was emotionally available, and since I was afraid to trust, I lost him. I lost the someone who could've erased some of my pain with his love, the man who would've become my husband and father to my children. What's the point? You know, I really should be more like my mother. She always used to say, "there's no use crying --" 3E5BEF40.JPG

Liz and Eve: "Over spilt milk."

T.C.: My mother used to say the same thing. Liz, enough, ok? We've talked about this enough, and -- and it's really upsetting you.

Liz: No, I'm ok.

T.C.: Honey, would you take a moment with Liz? I think she's been through a lot. Just try to calm her down. Ok?

Ivy: Well, there's another person who'd better hope that Eve keeps her mouth shut. T.C. would rip him to shreds if he knew the part that Julian played in Eve's past. Which begs the question -- why is he sticking around here?

***************************************

Pilar: I don't care what the doctor says. Antonio reached out for me because he knew I was there. 3E5BEF8E.JPG

Luis: Yeah, that's how it looked to me, too. I don't buy that it was a reflex. Antonio knew exactly what he was doing.

Sheridan: I hope you're right.

Pilar: Me, too. Excuse me.

Hank: I know the doctor has to be guarded, but I think it's a good sign that Antonio moved.

Beth: Of -- of course.

Hank: Imagine what this could mean -- not just for Antonio but for Luis and Sheridan. Could be the miracle they've been praying for. Oh, Beth, I'm sorry. I wasn't even thinking.

Beth: No, Hank, it's -- it's all right. I was just thinking that myself. 3E5BF07B.JPG

***************************************

Simone: I couldn't sleep because I kept seeing you and Chad together in my mind.

Whitney: Well, I -- I understand that.

Simone: I mean, I know it's silly. I get how you landed together on the couch. You tripped and fell on top of him in the dark. It must be Liz's story that's got me all shaken up.

Whitney: Well, it -- it shook me up, too.

Simone: I mean, it really blew me away. I mean, how could one sister do something so hurtful to another sister that she supposedly loved? If you ask me, it's the worst kind of betrayal there is. Anyway, I guess that's why I couldn't get a wink of sleep last night. I kept thinking about how I would feel if you ever betrayed me the way Liz's sister betrayed her. 3E5BF0B5.JPG

Whitney: Hey, I love you --

Simone: Oh, I know that! I know that now that I can think straight in broad daylight. But at night, when you're tossing and turning, your mind can go on some terrible tangents. I kept trying to picture what it would feel like if Chad ever left me for somebody else. Especially for you. I mean, Chad is all I ever had for myself, you know? And the idea of losing him and you -- I mean, that would just be unbearable. I mean, I know boyfriends come and go, but I only have one sister. And I don't want to end up like Liz -- alone and bitter. I guess that's why I have this splitting headache. Maybe I should try one of mom's painkillers. 3E5BF0FB.JPG

Whitney: No, no. You already took too many aspirin. You can't take anything else. You know, you could really hurt yourself. But don't worry. What happened between Liz and her sister is not going to happen between you and me because I'm not going to let anything come between us. Ok? Ever.

***************************************

Eve: Why didn't you tell me?

Liz: What difference would it have made?

Eve: "What difference would it have made"? Our father raped you. If I had known --

Liz: You would've done what exactly?

Eve: I would have protected you. We would have gone back together to the house and I would have fought him. At the very least, I could have offered you a safe haven, some refuge from this horror. 3E5BF13D.JPG

Liz: You mean if you weren't stinking high on drugs or booze or hopping in the sack with your rich boyfriend?

Eve: Liz, I don't deny that I had a problem. I just wish that you would've told me what you were going through. I mean why didn't you tell me when you came to the club to see me that night where I was singing?

Liz: It was pretty easy to see where your priorities were, Eve. And you're lying if you think you would've given a damn.

Eve: No, that is not true! I would've taken care of you! I know, I know -- I was a mess and I wasn't thinking clearly. But so help me God, Liz, at least if you had told me, you wouldn't have been alone. You wouldn't have had to bear that horrendous secret all by your little self. I'm so sorry. You have no idea how sorry I am. 3E5BF179.JPG

Liz: Actually, I believe you. Only your apology doesn't make it right. Your actions back then spoke a lot louder than any words you can come up with today, Eve. You know, it's easy to say, "I would've done the right thing," but the fact is you didn't. You were a terrible sister, Eve, and I'm still paying the price, and I think it's time that you paid, too.

Eve: Liz, I understand your anger now. I understand it. I do. But your trying to punish me is not going to erase all those awful things that you went through.

Liz: Maybe not. But it will give you a firsthand look at how it feels to be stabbed in the back by your sister. I think it's time that you saw the pain and suffering that I dealt with almost my entire life. I think it's time that you lost what was most important to you. And I'm going to make sure you do. 3E5BF1C2.JPG

Eve: I am so sorry that I wasn't there for you when you needed me. But that doesn't mean that I have to be a doormat now. I'm not going to let you blackmail me -- not for one more day than you already have. You cannot have my husband. You cannot have my family. I was already determined to tell T.C. the truth about my past.

Liz: Even if it means losing the things you really want to hold on to?

Eve: Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith. That's what I'm going to do. I'm going to tell T.C. the truth and and I'm going to pray that -- that he'll understand and that he'll forgive me.

***************************************

Luis: I'm convinced Antonio's coming out of his coma. Sheridan, he's going to make a full recovery. 3E5BF200.JPG

Sheridan: I hope you're right. I want that more than anything -- for him and for us. I have a confession to make.

Luis: What's that?

Sheridan: I was seriously thinking about leaving Harmony forever.

Luis: What are you talking about?

Sheridan: I felt it was the only option that I had, that I needed to take Antonio and leave here so that you can move on with your life, find happiness with someone else.

Luis: Sheridan, that's crazy. Where would you get an idea like that? Huh?

Sheridan: You know, it doesn't matter. I just felt that it was the only fair thing to do for any of us, even though the thought of not seeing you again just killed me. 3E5BF229.JPG

Luis: All right, well, you just get that idea right out of your head, ok, because that's not going to happen. Now, look, we're going to make it through this obstacle just like we've made it through all the other obstacles. We're going to be together, all right? You'll see.

***************************************

Hank: This back and forth with Luis has got to be pretty rough on you, Beth.

Beth: Well, I've always loved him, Hank. That's never changed.

Hank: That's some powerful kind of love, to be able to put your feelings second to his, loving -- loving him enough to let him go back to Sheridan if that's how things pan out. You're an incredible woman.

Beth: Thanks. But I think it's still too soon to know how things are going to come out. We don't know for certain that Antonio will even recover. 3E5BF267.JPG

Hank: Of course not. It's just I'd hate to see Luis and Sheridan disappointed again. They've been through so much already.

Beth: Not half as much as what I've had to endure.

Pilar: Thanks.

Beth: Oh, Pilar, how are you holding up?

Pilar: As best I can. I just wish the doctor would finish examining Antonio.

Hank: You never give up on your family do you?

Pilar: No, never. Faith is what gets me through the darkest hours. And God will answer my prayers. I know he will.

Hank: We, I know he'll hear your prayers.

Beth: And I'm praying for you, too.

Pilar: Thank you, Beth. You're such a good girl. 3E5BF295.JPG

Sheridan: Dr. Wirtz.

Hank: What's the story, doctor? Is Antonio coming out of his coma? Is he waking up?

***************************************

Chad: What happened? What'd she say when you told her we're in love?

Whitney: Look, I couldn't. Ok, I didn't tell her anything.

Chad: Why not?

Whitney: You were completely wrong about Simone. She can't handle the truth. If I were to tell her the truth about us, it would've pushed her completely over the edge.

Chad: No, no, I don't buy that.

Whitney: No, you didn't walk in on what I just did. She was so upset after seeing us together last night that she went in there and took too many aspirins. 3E5BF370.JPG

Chad: On purpose?

Whitney: She said that it wasn't on purpose, but she's really scaring me. She's my sister, ok, and I can't -- I won't hurt her.

Chad: I don't know what she said to you up there, but you're overreacting.

Whitney: I don't think so. And if you really think k that, then we're a lot more different than I thought.

Chad: Meaning?

Whitney: Meaning -- look, I don't know! Just what I said! I don't care what's at stake right now! The most important thing to me is my sister's well-being.

Chad: More important than you and me?

Whitney: Maybe we should take a break from each other.

Chad: No. 3E5BF397.JPG

Whitney: It's not that I want to. It's just that I don't really see any other choice for us right now. And it won't be for long, ok? Just long enough for things to cool down with her and for us to figure out what we're going to do next. And in the meanwhile, I won't have to be sneaking around behind her back, risking breaking her heart.

Chad: Is there anything I can say to change your mind?

Whitney: No. Right now, Simone needs to come first.

Simone: It worked. Yes.

***************************************

Julian: So, what are you going to do now?

Eve: The same thing I was going to do before -- I'm going to tell T.C. that I'm Liz's sister. It's more important now than ever. 3E5BF3CD.JPG

Julian: You're not thinking clearly. After Liz's confession, her sister sounds as guilty as her father.

Eve: I guess in a way, I am. I think that when I tell T.C. what I was like then, then he'll understand that it wasn't intentional and that I would've never let anyone hurt Liz.

Julian: It'll never get that far if you tell T.C. I was the man you were involved with.

***************************************

Ivy: I wonder if the good doctor will purge her guilty conscience now.

David: I don't know. I mean, it was difficult enough, but after Liz's story, it's just even tougher.

Ivy: Well, you better hope it's tough enough to keep her quiet for good -- for both our sakes. 3E5BF406.JPG

***************************************

T.C.: How are you feeling?

Liz: I'm still a little shaky, I guess. I never told anyone about the things I told you about today.

T.C.: I can't begin to fathom what you went through. No one should ever endure what you did.

Liz: If only I'd had my sister to turn to. Talking about it has made me face some very painful memories that I thought I had locked away forever. The only reason I told you was so you could finally understand why I feel the way I do about my sister. T.C., I want to ask you something.

T.C.: Anything.

Liz: Before I told you my sordid story, you said that you thought that my sister's husband could probably forgive her because he loved her. Do you still feel the same way now? 3E5BF457.JPG

***************************************

Luis: For god's sake, doctor, please! Is Antonio going to make a recovery or not?

Dr. Wirtz: It's not for me to say.

Pilar: What does this mean?

Hank: Can you be more specific?

Luis: Yeah, if you can't tell us, then who can?

Antonio: How about me? Wouldn't you rather hear it from the horse's mouth?

Pilar: Oh, my God. Oh, my God!

Sheridan: Antonio!

Pilar: Oh!

Sheridan: You're awake!

Antonio: There she is -- my beautiful wife.

Sheridan: My God.

Pilar: My son. Thank God. Oh, thank God.

Luis: Antonio. 3E5BF481.JPG

>>On the next Passions

Antonio: I'm home now, and nothing is ever going to take me away from any of you ever again.

Grace: No, Sam, this is all out you and your undying feelings for Ivy.

Theresa: Not only does Ethan hate me, but I could go to prison for trying to kill his mother.
