Passions Transcript Friday 3/19/04
Ivy: Oh, jessica. Do you know, is charity home?
Jessica: She's in her room "studying" with reese. Anatomy, no doubt -- his.
Reese: Charity, we'll take a break later. We've got a lot of studying to do.
Charity: I don't really feel like studying.
Reese: Well, be that as it may, you really need to pull that history mark up. You tanked that last exam.
Ararity: Did I?
Reese: Come on, charity. No, when you asked me to come over, you said we were going to study.
Charity: I lied.
Kay: Oh, look at my hands. They're covered with calluses and cuts.
Woman: Hey, rookie, you look like you're going to cry. What's the matter, you never do an honest day's work before?
Kay: Well, not like this. I mean, I helped out at home sometimes, but my dad always did everything really for me.
Woman: Aw, daddy's wittle girl has to work hard scaling those mean old fish.
Second woman: Maybe daddy can come down here and do for you.
Third woman: Oh, hey, that sam bennett's a stud. He can scale my fish anytime!
Fourth woman: You finding this work tough going, are you?
Kay: Well, working at the cannery isn't exactly the easiest job around.
Woman: Yeah. But you know the best part about scaling fish?
Kay: No, what?
Woman: Tomorrow, you can come back and do it all over again.
Julian: It all makes sense now.
Alistair: What are you talking about, julian?
Julian: Why you gave chad money to take whitney out on valentine's day, why you've been so complimentary about him.
Alistair: I told you he has qualities I admire, which is more than I can say about you.
Julian: I know what you're up to, father.
Alistair: Do you?
Julian: It's all about eve, isn't it, father?
Eve: Oh, gosh. Theresa's attorney didn't tell me what courtroom the custody case was in.
Chad: Hi, dr. Russell.
Eve: Hi, chad. Hi, whitney.
Whitney: We're kind of in a hurry, so maybe we should just --
eve: I know you're here to support theresa and her custody case.
Whitney: That's right, because I'm loyal to the people that I love, unlike you.
Eve: Whitney --
whitney: What are you doing here, anyway? I mean, did julian call you so that you could meet up here for another little courtroom tryst?
Eve: No. Theresa's attorney called me so I could be a character witness for theresa.
Whitney: You a character witness? Who would believe a lying, cheating tramp like you, mom?
Judge: Well, counselor, why should I give your client back her son? She's homeless, unemployed, a convicted murderer. Tell me one good reason why this court should award custody of that boy to her.
Rebecca: Theresa will never get her child back, gwen, never.
Fox: Come on, woody, say something.
Ethan: Woody, don't you freeze up now.
Woody: If your honor will permit and allow me, as to the question of theresa's conviction, I would like to point out that the supposed, alleged murder victim, jujulian crane, is walking, squawking, and talking here in our fair city of harmony.
Judge: So? The fact is your client was convicted. She's still homeless. She's still looking for a job. What possible reason could I have to give her custody?
Rebecca: There's no reason on earth. By the end of this hearing, I am going to have custody of little ethan. And thanks to my job as acting as the stepmother from hell, ethan will jump at the chance for the two of you to adopt the little boy.
Gwen: Seems like it.
Rebecca: It's in the bag. I've taken her job, her home, and now her child.
Gwen: Just like she took my little sarah way from me.
Rebecca: That's right. Revenge is sweet, isn't it, gwennie?
Theresa: Fox, they're going to take little ethan. I'm going to lose my little boy.
Pilar: Thanks again, hank! And you too, sam. Thank you so much for helping us put all our things in the truck.
Sam: I'm just sorry about why.
Pilar: Well, it's over now.
Luis: Yeah, it's official. We're homeless.
Pilar: No, mijo, we're not, we're not. You're going to be staying with hank, miguel's going to be staying with kay and tabitha, theresa's with whitney, and I will be taking care of the bed-and-breakfast while grace --
sam: Is in europe with david. It's ok, pilar, you can say it.
Pilar: I'm sorry.
Sam: Nothing I can do about it.
Luis: I know what you're going through, sam. Going through the same thing with sheridan. Look, you know, I think we just have to respect their wishes. Even though I know alistair and dr. Ackland had her brainwashed in the psych ward.
Sam: But you don't have any proof.
Luis: Not yet, but there's got to be a way to make sheridan remember she loves me. There's got to be a way.
Beth: I agree, sheridan. I totally agree.
Mrs. Wallace: Oh, this is it, precious. Alistair said that if sheridan saw the baby again, she could remember everything, like how much she loves luis and the fact that this little bambino is really theirs. Well, guess what -- I'm going to make that happen. I'm going to put this sweet little angel right back into his mommy's arms -- his real mommy! Hallelujah! Come on.
Sheridan: I know it will never happen, I know that my baby's gone, but, you know, that's my fantasy, that's -- that's my dream -- that someday someone will just walk through the door and place my baby back in my arms. My boy.
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
Reese: Charity, come on. We really have to study.
Charity: I am studying. I'm studying your chest. I'm studying your biceps. I'm studying --
reese: No, no, no. See, my grades are down, too. I'm not exactly lighting it up in the classroom right now.
Charity: You're no fun.
Reese: But see, my dad, he's already taken away my car, and if I don't pull my grades up to where they were last semester, who knows what he's going to take away next.
Charity: I've already had everything taken away from me.
Woman: Hey. Rookie. You look kind of sick.
Kay: I'm just tired.
Woman: Oh, don't worry about it. The first thousand fish you scale are the hardest.
Second woman: Yeah. After that, it's a piece of cake -- fish cake! "Fish cake."
Kay: Simone, thank god you're here. Get me out of here.
Simone: Hmm, that bad, huh?
Kay: I'd tell you how bad, but I'm too tired.
Simone: Ooh, and you smell, too.
Simone: Ooh, kay, when you thought about seducing miguel and getting pregnant, did you think that everything would turn out like this?
Julian: I should have figured this out sooner, but I was distracted when I first came in here and found you plotting to kill my sister again.
Alistair: I told you I would back off on sheridan as long as she stayed with antonio.
Julian: It was when I asked you to tell me where eve's and my son is --
Julian: Chad comes in, I find out that you've given him money. Me, eve, chad. Now whitney's involved? It's clear to me now, father.
Alistair: What is?
Julian: You bastard. I know why you gave chad harris money.
Whitney: Theresa, honey? Hey.
Theresa: You guys, thank you for coming.
Chad: How's it going?
Theresa: Not good.
Judge: The court is waiting, mr. Thumper.
Woody: Ahem. That's stumper. As you know, your honor, theresa lopez hyphen fitzgerald is the mother of the little boy, ethan.
Judge: The biological mother, yes. We know that, mr. Stumper. The question before this court is, why should she regain custody?
Woody: Well, your honor, I was just getting to that.
Judge: You were certainly taking your time about it.
Little ethan: Mommy!
Woody: There! There it is, your honor! You asked for a good reason why theresa should be awarded custody of her son. There it is! There it is! There's a good reason -- the unbreakable bond between a mama and her child. What heart -- what heart could beat so cruel that would want to rip asunder those tender ties?
Ethan's voice: All right, good job, woody. No way the judge can ignore that. Maybe theresa will get her son back.
Rebecca: We have got to do something, gwen. We cannot let this happen.
Beth: Um, ahem. Sheridan, just give me one minute to check on my boy, and then maybe you and I could talk a little more about how you're going to help me get back together with luis, ok?
Sheridan: I just -- I have to see the baby first.
Mrs. Wallace's voice: Finally. Sheridan is going to remember everything. Judge who ordered a gun be given to a woman the rcmp once described as alcoholic and suicidal, joy wants to know when we'll get to start electing judges. John says the judge has opened up a good debate. The judge said people should have guns to protect themselves against animals in the wild and robbers and rapists in the city. John wonders if that means we should stop depending on police and start arming ourselves. We haven't heard
Simone: Is getting miguel worth all this?
Woman: Hey. Rookie, did you say you got a man at home? Because if you do, coming through the door reeking of fish is no turn-on, believe me.
Second woman: Miguel? Is that the name you said?
Third woman: Miguel lopez fitzgerald?
Fourth woman: Pilar's kid?
Woman: Ooh, that boy worked here for a while. Now, that boy's a hottie! Sss!
Second woman: He'll cool off real fast if you come in smelling like fish.
Third woman: Don't move. Got something for you.
Second woman: That's right, give her the industrial.
Third woman: Here you are, honey.
Kay: What is it?
Woman: Use it in the shower. It kills the smell of eau de tuna so you'll have a nice night of "oh, miguel."
Sesecond woman: Ooh!
Woman: Oh, don't thank me. Just give me the details tomorrow.
Jessica: I'm leaving. I am not going to stand out here in the hall, waiting for the moaning and groaning to start again.
Ivy: Oh, jessica, I'm so sorry. I --
Ivy: Hi, it's me. Sam, I think you'd better come home.
Sam: What happened?
Iv it's charity. We got a letter, and I think you need to discuss it with her.
Sam: A letter about what?
Ivy: Well, you'll find out when you get home.
Sam: All right, I'll be right there. I got to get home.
Luis: All right. I'm going to go grab some coffee. You'll still be able to help me and hank unload the truck at the church, right?
Sam: I'll be there.
Luis: Thanks, friend. See you.
Sam: I wonder what's going on with charity now.
Miguel: Hello, maria. How are you? You're a big girl, huh, maria? Huh? Seems like just the other day that you were born. Pretty soon, you'll be crawling and walking. Where's all the time go? Where's all the time go, maria? Where's it go? You want some juice? I know you want some juice. You're getting excited about juice, huh? Where'd daddy put your bottle? There it is.
Miguel: Charity. What happened to you? What happened to us?
Rebecca: Don't give her the kid. Don't give her the kid.
Judge: This is all very touching. The boy obviously has deep feelings for his mother. But I have to make a decision based on logic, not emotion. The question is, what would be the best environment for the child? In order to answer that, I'll need to hear witnesses from both sides. But beforehehey're called, I'd like to hear opening statements. You may remove the boy for the rest of the proceedings.
Woman: Come along, little ethan.
Theresa: Bye, sweetheart.
Little ethan: Bye, mommy.
Judge: Mr. Stumper, the court will hear your opening statement.
Fox: Theresa, everything's going to be ok.
Theresa: God, don't let them take my son, please. Don't let them take my son.
Beth: Um, sheridan, I am so grateful for everything that you did for lite e martin. Giving him your breast milk probably saved his life. And, well, he's -- he's doing just fine now, so I don't really need any help taking care of him, ok?
Sheridan: I'm so sorry, beth. Of course, of course. I'm sorry. Just go to your child.
Beth: Thank you. Come here, baby.
Mrs. Wallace: Angel.
Beth: Get over here! What the hell do you think you're doing?
Mrs. Wallace: I'm giving sheridan back her baby!
Beth: Damn it, mother, martin is my baby --
mrs. Wallace: Yeah.
Beth: And sheridan is never going to get him back!
Mrs. Wallace: Hello, pilar! Hi, honey!
Beth: Pilar, hi. How long have you been standing there?
Singer: You are my passion for life
woman: And don't you leave a thing out, kay. We want to know all about your night with miguel.
Second woman: Details.
Third woman: Blow-by-blow.
Second woman: Blow-by-blow!
Kay: Hey, miguel.
Miguel: Hey, kay. It's your mommy, maria. How's work?
Kay: It's over, thank god.
Miguel: You sound exhausted. It was tough, huh?
Kay: I've had better days. But, hey, I'll be home soon.
Miguel: Ok, well, we'll be here.
Kay: Ok, bye.
Simone: You really have made a mess of your life, girlfriend.
Kay: Oh, what a sweet thing to say, simone.
Simone: But true.
Kay: No, it isn't, ok? It's hard right now, but the bottom line is this -- I've got miguel and charity doesn'T.
[Knock on door]
Charity: Go away.
Sam: I'm not going anywhere. We need to talk.
Charity: About what?
Sam: Open the door.
Charity: What is it?
Sam: I really don't like your attitude, you know, and I really don't like this. Now, what are we going to do about it?
Julian: I should've seen this before.
Alistair: Cut the drama, julian. What should you have seen? What exactly do you think you've figured out?
Julian: You gave chad money to cause eve more pain.
Julian: Right, you knew that she didn't want whitney and chad to be together, so you gave him money so he could romance whitney because you knew it would make eve suffer.
Alistair: Nonsense. All I wanted to do was help two young lovers be together, as I said before.
Julian: The hell you did. God, I know you, father.
Alistair: Oh, you'd better get that. It might be the lovely eve.
Eve: Julian? Hi, it's me. I'm down at the courthouse. Theresa's custody case was unexpectedly scheduled for today and her attorney asked me to be a character witness for theresa.
Julian: Today? Rebecca didn't tell me.
Eve: I feel like what's going on is all my fault.
Eve: Yes, it is. I know that you're only doing this because rebecca threatened to expose our past affair, but isn't there something that you can do to stop her? She's only doing this to get revenge on theresa.
Julian: I'm not sure there is anything I could do to stop her, but I'll come down there and we'll see if we can come up with something. I am little ethan's father, after all.
Alistair: Running off to eve again, julian? You'd better be careful. One of these days, T.C.'S going to kill you.
Julian: That's a risk I'll take. Stop making eve suffer. Because I promise you, if you don't, I'll see that you suffer the tortures of the damned.
Alistair: Oh, julian. When you finally learn the truth about chad, you'll be the one suffering the tortures of the damned.
Woody: Theresa loves her son dearly! It would be reprehensible, not to mention incomprehensible for you not to award theresa custody of her son. Your honor, if you have a heart, you must not keep them apart.
Attorney: Your honor, I submit that theresa lopez fitzgerald is a loose cannon, emotionally and morally unfit to raise a puppy, much less a child, a woman convicted of murder, a woman with no income, no home, a woman whose obsessive pursuit of ethan winthrop caused mr. Winthrop's wife to lose her baby.
Theresa: I never meant for that to happen!
Woody: Dr. Russell, how long have you known theresa lopez hyphen fitzgerald?
Eve: All her life.
Woody: So obviously, you have seen her interact with her son?
Eve: Oh, she loves little ethan to death. She would give her life for him.
Woody: Thank you, dr. Russell! Your witness!
Attorney: Dr. Russell, thereshas exhibited erratic behavior in the past, hasn't she?
Eve: I'm not sure what you mean.
Attorney: Oh, come now, doctor, she's a convicted murderer.
Eve: But julian is alive and well. She didn't murder him. It was just a big mistake.
Attorney: And her obsession wiwith ethan winthrop? The way she stalked him caused his wife to lose her baby. I suppose that was all a mistake, too?
Eve: I don't know what happened with gwen's baby. I know that theresa has said that it wasn't her fault and that she is terribly sorry that gwen lost her baby.
Attorney: And that makes it all right?
Eve: I didn't say that.
Attorney: Well, would you say that theresa is a woman who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted?
Eve: I'd say that theresa is a passionate young woman whose only desire is to love and to be loved.
Attorney: No matter who she hurts in the process? No further questions, your honor.
Eve: No, I didn't say -- theresa dearly loves her child.
Judge: You may step down, dr. Russell.
Eve: The love between a mother and her child, the bond between them should never be broken by anything or anyone. Nothing should keep them apart.
Judge: Thank you, doctor. You may step down.
Rebecca: And I just adore little ethan. Oh, I would treat him as if he were my own.
Theresa: You are a liar, rebecca!
Fox: Theresa, theresa.
Theresa: No, I heard you. You were yelling at him, rebecca! I heard you hit him! Your honor, she threw a firecracker to my son!
Judge: You will keep quiet, ms. Lopez fitzgerald. This isn't an open forum.
Theresa: I'm sorry, I can't just stand here and listen to the lies that are coming out of this woman's mouth!
Woody: Theresa, you're not helping us.
Theresa: No, no, you -- you abused my son! And when I get my hands on you, I'm going to make you pay, rebecca!
Rebecca: Oh, your honor, you see how violent she is. Oh, please, I would feel so much safer if you'd put her in restraints.
Theresa: You bitch!
[Judge pounds gavel]
Judge: If you don't sit down and be quiet, I will take your son away from you right now!
Fox: Listen to what he's saying, ok?
Theresa: But --
judge: Knock it off!
Theresa: Your honor, she's lying! Your honor, she's lying!
Judge: All right, all right! I warned you, but you wouldn't listen. You leave me no choice but to take your son away from you right now.
Theresa: No, no, please --
woody: No, your honor --
theresa: No! No, please!
It's decision time.
Now people have that sense of trust. Political experience is necessary. But I don't have the political baggage.
This saturday, they'll learn which one of them got the job. But not before you do. Live coverage, conservative leadership convention, saturday.
Theresa: Please, please, your honor, plsese don't take my son from me.
Judge: Then no more histrionics.
Woody: You're hanging by a thread here, theresa. Step out of line again, you'll lose your boy forever.
Fox: Listen to woody on this one, ok?
Rebecca: Well, surely you're not going to continue the trial, your honor, I mean, not after that outburst.
Judge: Are you trying to tell me my business, mrs. Crane?
Rebecca: Uh, no, sir, no, sir.
Judge: In the first place, this isn't a trial, it's a custody hearing, and in the second place, it's time for you to step down.
Now. Mr. Stumper, do you have any more witnesses?
Woody: Yes, sir, I do. I call to the stand to testify on her own behalf ms. Theresa lopez hyphen fitzgerald.
Rebecca: This is too perfect.
Gwen: How? What if she sways the judge?
Rebecca: Oh, that little slut will never hold it together. No, theresa is going down in flames.
Ethan's voice: Come on, theresa, you can do it. Just be yourself and let the judge see what a good mother you really are.
Pilar: What is going on?
Beth: What do you mean?
Pilar: Why are you and your mother arguing?
Beth: No, we aren'T. It's just that martin has a cough and I didn't want him to be taken outside, and I got irritated at my mother because she brought him over here instead of just calling me when he got fussy. Isn't that right, mother?
Mrs. Wallace: Well, you know --
beth: Two words -- sweet serenity.
Mrs. Wallace: Yes, pilar, I guess I got a little flustered, you know, when martin started coughing, you know, and I just didn't think. You know, it's my mistake.
Pilar: Wait, but if you didn't want the baby to be outside, why didn't you want your mother to bring him into the book cafe?
Luis: Yeah, I just figured I'd grab us some coffee before we unload the truck. Yeah, sam's coming. Yeah, I feel bad for him and grace, too. Well, I got to say I think he's doing a good job of keeping his emotions in check. I actually told him I don't know if I'd be able to do the same thing if I ran into sheridan. Yeah, I might just grab her and hold her and make her remember that I'm the man she loves. Anyway, look, I'll get out of here as soon as I get the coffee and I'll see you there, ok, buddy? All right.
Charity: What is it?
Sam: A letter from the dean of your school.
Charity: Yeah? So?
Sam: So it says if you don't get your grades up, you're going to flunk out of school.
Reese: Gee, hope I don't get a letter. I'd better get home and check the mail.
Jessica: So, you got what you wanted from charity and now you're hitting the road, huh?
Reese: Oh, no, jessica, it's not what you think. It's not like that at all.
Reese: No, I swear. But ever since the ski lodge, it's like I just can't resist charity.
Jessica: I don't want to hear it, all right?
Reese: No, jessica, it's --
jessica: All charity has to do is say "jump" and you do, right into the sack with her.
Reese: No, no, chief bennett, it's not what you think!
Jessica: Kay always said you were too good to be true, and she was right. You're nothing but a rotten, lying slut!
Simone: You could've had such a great life, kay. I mean, you're smart, you're a terrific athlete. You could've gone to the state university on an athletic scholarship, graduated, maybe traveled the world before settling down and having a family.
Kay: Enough simone, ok? I'm tired. All I want to do is just get into a bath and use this jug of god-knows-what to get this fish smell off me, ok, and then I just want to crawl into bed.
Simone: Look, just answer me one question -- is it worth it? I mean, having this hard life, is it worth it?
Julian: How's it going?
Eve: Well, I don't know how the hearing's going, but I'm certain that my daughter hates me and is going to hate me forever.
Woody: In your own words, theresa, tell the court how you feel about your son. Suave.
Theresa: Little ethan means everything to me. He's my world. I've had to sit here and listen to people talk about me not being fit to look after my son because I don't have a job, because I don't have a home, or because of things that have happened in my past. Well, I do have a place to stay with the russell family. They're a wonderful, loving family. And as far as a job goes, I know that I'm going to get a job very soon. I understand that my situation looks pretty bleak right now, but it's temporary. But my love for my son is permanent. It's real. And that's never going to change. And as far as the things in the past, well, that's just the past. You know, everything changed for me the moment that my son was born. And I looked into his eyes and I swore at that moment that I would always protect him, that I would always keep him safe, and that I would always, always let him know how much I loved him. Your honor, you saw what happened earlier when little ethan was brought in. Did he go to rebecca? No. Your honor, he didn't even look at her. He went straight to me. Doesn't that prove the love that we have, that my child should be with me, wiwith his real mother?
Rebecca: Not when his real mother is a certifiable psycho!
[Judge pounds gavel]
Judge: Order. There will be no more outbursts, mrs. Crane! Ms. Lopez fitzgerald?
Judge: I understand fully what you're saying. The bond between mother and son is very special. I don't know what my own life would be like if I had been separated from my own mother.
Theresa: Ok, well, then -- then you understand. You're going to give me my son back, aren't you? Thank you. Your honor, thank you so much.
Miguel: It's mommy, maria!
Kay: Hey, you! How's my little girl? Hi.
Miguel: How you feeling?
Kay: Hi. Good. It's so good to be home. Hey! Hey!
Simone: Maybe it is all worth it for you, kay.
Jessica: You're nothing but a tramp!
Ivy: Honey, you have to calm down.
Jessica: Hopping into bed with reese right next to my room, where I have to listen to you carrying on?
Sam: You know, you and I should go outside for a little talk.
Reese: Sorry, I can'T. Got to go!
Jessica: I hope you do flunk out of school, charity. I hope your whole life falls apart and gets destroyed, just like you destroyed mine.
Sam: What do you have to say for yourself, charity?
Charity: My life's already fallen apart, jessica.
Julian: Looks like I'm not going to have to do anything to stop rebecca. It appears theresa's about to get her son back.
Theresa: Little ethan will be mine again? Thank you, your honor. Thank you so much.
Judge: You're getting ahead of yourself, ms. Lopez fitzgerald. I understand fully your point of view. But the fact remains I have to make a decision about what's best for the child.
Theresa: Ok, so what does that mean?
Judge: That I still have a decision to make. You through with her, counselor?
Woody: Yes, your honor.
Judge: You may step down, ms. Lopez fitzgerald.
Theresa: Thank you, your honor.
Judge: I suppose this case boils down to what every other case in the harmony courts comes down to -- the cranes against someone. In this instanceththe cranes against the lopez fitzgeralds.
Fox: Your honor, that's not entirely true. I'm a crane and I'm on theresa's side.
Rebecca: Well, he's sleeping with her, your honor. Of course he's on her side -- among other places.
[Judge pounds gavel]
Judge: That's enough!
Fox: Listen, if my aunt sheridan were here, I'm sure she'd be on theresa's side as well.
Ethan's voice: I'd like to help, woody. I'm on theresa's side. There's just nothing more I can do.
Judge: Thank you, mr. Crane. You have helped me immeasurably. I was going to my chambers to at least give the appearance I was about to deliberate, but I've decided to stop wasting everyone's time. I've made a decision as to who will receive custody of the child, ethan crane.
Beth: Um, the reason that I didn't want to take martin into the cafe is because sheridan is inside. She's been talking about losing her baby, and I just -- I didn't want to upset her, having her see martin and how happy I am with my child.
Pilar: There's more to it than that. There's another reason you don't want sheridan to see the baby, isn't ther b beth?
Sheridan: Luis, please!
Luis: No, sheridan. I know you remember I'm the man that you love.
Sheridan: Yes. Yes, you're right. I remember. You are the man I love. You're the man that I want to be with.
