Passions Transcript Friday 3/26/04
Mrs. Wallace: You --
[Knock on door]
Beth: Guess what -- luis is back.
Mrs. Wallace: What?
Oh, it was so sweet of you, but you don't have to apologize for leaving before we could even have dinner last night. I mean, I understand.
Luis: Oh, right. No, I'd completely forgot about that, beth.
Mrs. Wallace: Ego, bye-bye.
Luis: Couldn't think of anything else after I ran into stupid alistair on the wharf.
Beth: Alistair crane?
Luis: Yeah, alistair crane. He offered me and my family money to leave harmony for good.
Beth: You're not going to take it, are you?
Luis: Hell no. Told him I was going to ruin him and he laughed in my face.
Beth: I'm sorry, luis, but last time you tried to nail him, you failed.
Luis: Oh, yeah, but this time's different. Yeah, I'm going to get the goods on him this time, then I'm going to bring him down, and when I do, I'll get sheridan back.
Pilar: Eve? What did the lab have to say about my blood test results?
Eve: Pilar, why don't you have a seat here, honey.
Pilar: That bad, huh?
Eve: I want you to keep hold of yourself, ok?
Pilar: Just tell me, eve. Just tell me what's wrong with me, please.
Eve: Your white blood count is very high. Your red blood count is very low.
Pilar: What does that mean?
Eve: Well, it could mean a lot of things. So the lab ran an additional test so that they could rule out a worse-case scenario.
Pilar: Ok, what -- what did this test show?
Eve: Unfortunately, it confirmed it instead.
Pilar: What did it say?
Eve: I'm so sorry, pilar. You have a very rare, a very serious blood disorder.
Gwen: Oh, I hope you're right and theresa does something idiotic that will land herself in even more legal trouble.
Rebecca: Well, of course I'm right. Little miss desperado will behave so badly that ethan will finally agree to adopt little ethan. Theresa's son is as good as yours.
Whitney: Theresa, what's going on?
Fox: Yeah, you look like you're on a mission.
Theresa: Um, I found a way to stop rebea and gwen from stealing my child.
Fox: Ok, I'm dying to hear how.
Theresa: I'm going to take little ethan out of the country, and then no one can take my child away from me again.
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
Rebecca: What's going on?
Gwen: Well, I wanted to talk to you about something that sheridan mentioned earlier.
Rebecca: Oh, she can't decide whether luis or antonio is the better lover and she wants me to sleep with both of them and then let her know my opinion.
Gwen: No. Actually, she suggested that ethan and I try surrogacy. Look, if ethan and I use a surrogate, we could have our own biological child.
Rebecca: Of course! I didn't even think of it!
Gwen: Yeah, I hadn't thought of it, either.
Rebecca: Well, then it's settled. Right after you and ethan adopt little ethan, you can give him a brother or a sister through a surrogate.
Gwen: Well, actually, I was thinking we could, you know, use a surrogate instead of adopting little ethan.
Rebecca: No. No, absolutely not. Not after all the trouble I have gone to here. No, we are going to take theresa's son from her if it is the last thing we do.
Theresa: We're going to head south of the border, ok? Mama's family lives there and th will protect us.
Fox: Whatrere you going to live on?
Theresa: I'm going to get a job.
Whitney: Doing what? Honey, you never started college. You don't have any skills to speak of. What are you going to do for money?
Theresa: Mama's family will help us. And if they can't, then, I don't know, I'll dig ditches, I'll clean toilets. I'm going to do whatever I have to do for my child.
Pilar: Is this disease fatal?
Eve: Possibly, yes.
Pilar: Dear god. Not now.
Eve: I'm so sorry, pilar. I know that I've given you terrible news, but there's always hope.
Pilar: I'm not crying for myself, eve. I believe in god the almighty, an afterlife. I'm not afraid to die. I'm crying for my children. I can't leave them. Not now. Not when teresita has lost custody of ethan, and luis floundering without sheridan. And antonio, he's so full of rage towards his brother. And my miguelito, my god. He's lost charity and he doesn't have the ability to support his child. Not when we don't have a place to live and we have noononey. I can't die without seeing paloma one last time. I can't die without knowing what happened to my husband! I have to live, eve. I have to live for my family. I have to.
Eve: I'm going to set up another test and determine what stage the disorder is in, and you'll have a whole range of treatment options.
Pilar: It is no use. I have no health insurance. I have no money. I don't even have money to pay for my funeral expenses.
Beth: How can you possibly get the goods on alistair crane?
Luis: Know what the thing is, honestly -- I can't believe I didn't think of it sooner.
Beth: Think of what?
Luis: Ever since sheridan and I met, alistair has been hellbent on keeping us apart. He thinks if I get close to sheridan, I'm going to find out all the crane secrets, all the horrible things that he's done to people, including my father. You know what? He's absolutely right. And without crane to protect him, dr. Ackland will cave. Then I can get him to reverse whatever it is he did to sheridan in that psych ward, then sheridan and I will be together.
Beth: Luis, I don't want you taking on alistair. You could get hurt.
Luis: Well, what the hell else is he going to do to me? He's already cost me my job as a cop. In fact, my whole family's been fired from all their jobs. They've taken away my home. Now they're trying to take away theresa's son. I mean, seriously, what the hell else can the old man do?
Alistair: Luis has threatened me and my empire with ruin if he ever gets his manos on anything he can use against us. The key to keep that from happening is to make sure sheridan doesn't remember that she still loves luis and would do anything for him, even betray her own family to help luis destroy me. So, dr. Ackland, it's vital that my daughter continue to think her one true love is antonio. See that she does. If you don't, sheridan's death will be the price of your failure. Oh, and, ackland -- have a nice day.
Eve: Pilar, don't you dare start talking about funerals. Now, this disorder can be treated successfully.
Pilar: Not when there's no money to pay for the bills.
Eve: Just don't worry about that now.
Pilar: Eve, I know you're trying to help me, and I appreciate it, but I simply cannot afford more tests, much less treatment. That's just all there is to it.
Eve: Maybe not. Maybe not, pilar. Maybe there's something I can do.
Rebecca: I just wish sheridan would keep some of her opinions to herself
gwen: Well, she and ethan both think the same thing -- that it would be cruel to take theresa's child from her.
Rebecca: Cruel? No, what's cruel is what theresa did to you, literally stabbing you in the back when you delivered her son, then killing your baby and leaving you as barren as the land around chernobyl.
Gwen: Wow, ok? That's harsh even for you. God.
Rebecca: No, we are going to take theresa's son away from her whether you or ethan or sheridan wants to or not.
Ethan: I just hope woody keeps theresa under wraps. I'd hate for her to do something stupid to try to get little ethan back.
Theresa: Ok, you know, maybe you guys don't understand what I'm feeling because you don't have children, but little ethan is -- well, he means the world to me, and I just -- I can't imagine living without him. So, I don't know, I pretty would much rather die than lose him.
Whitney: Ok, I don't like you talking like this. I mean, come on, you're supposed to be the optimist, the one that always tried to make things work out in the end, right?
Theresa: Yeah, yeah, and that's what I'm doing right now, whit, is try to take matters into my own hands. I mean, I know that I don't money and I don't have power to fight rebecca in court, but what I can do is strike when she least expects it, right? So she would think that I would be completely crazy to kidnap my child again. So that's -- that's what I have to do. Ok? So, fox, whitney, are you in or out? You with a southpaw swing. Great champion he is. Who could have imagined
singer: You are my passion for life
beth: Luis, you can't just go after alistair crane. He's one of the most powerful men in the world, and he didn't get that way by letting people walk all over him. If you go head-to-head with sheridan's father, god only knows what could happen.
Mrs. Wallace: Bethie is right, now!
Luis: All right, all right, look, I appreciate your concern, ok, but alistair is just a hateful old man, ok? He's not some evil supervillain.
Beth: I wouldn't underestimate alistair if I were you, luis. I mean, from what little I know about him, he's capable of almost anything.
Alistair: Luis is a fool.
Alistair: If he dares to take me on, he'll pay a high price. Not only will luis cost sheridan her life, he will die, as well. Hmm.
Pilar: How can you help me pay for more tests, much less the cost of treating me?
Eve: The crane foundation. They have a discretionary fund at the hospital for the doctors to use as they see fit. I can arrange to have it pay for whatever you need.
Pilar: Oh, eve, thank you. Thank you so much. And I'm sorry. I'm sorry to be such a burden to you.
Eve: You codndn't ever be a burden to anybody. You know, the most important thing for you is your stress level. Now, if you just can keep this stress down, it can go a long way towards helping to curb the effects of this disorder.
Pilar: Yeah, right. I'll just pretend that I have a home and a job and that my family's not in turmoil. Right.
Eve: I know it won't be easy, honey, but there's a lot of studies that say a positive outlook can do a lot to improve the situation.
Pilar: Ok. Hmm. If you think it'll help, eve, I'll try to stay positive. But that's a tall order -- to have to fight this disease and rebecca.
Rebecca: Gwen, this is no time to get soft about adopting little ethan. No, you've got to find your backbone. You have to set your eyes on the prize and go for the gold. You got to make theresa pay for what she's done to you. You have to take her child away from her. And then you find some woman to bake your egg and ethan's stuff in her oven till the kid pops out.
Ethan: Ladies. I thought I heard voices in here.
Rebecca: Well, ethan, I was just talking to gwen about little ethan's boarding school. You see, julian and I have decided not to waste our time in checking it out. I mean, how bad can it be? And even if it is, well, little ethan won't have to read "oliver twist," he can live it. So if you'll excuse me, I want to go check out summer camps. I mean, we certainly don't want little ethan underfoot for three whole months.
Ethan: Honey, I can't believe how cavalier she is towards little ethan.
Gwen: Well, we could have changed that if you actually would've agreed with me to adopt littleththan, right?
Ethan: Right. I'll be in the library.
Rebecca: Gwen, what was that all about? Go on, make nice. Come on.
Fox: Ok, theresa, the last time you tried to take little ethan, rebecca had you arrested. This time she could have you shot.
Whitney: Fox is right, you can't try to steal little ethan from the mansion again. It's dangerous, honey, not to mention crazy.
Theresa: I know.
Whitney: Well, good.
Theresa: But I have to do it anyway.
Fox: Come again?
Theresa: Ok, and I got to do it by myself.
Whitney: No, theresa, wait a second, no.
Theresa: Look, I can't wait. If I don't act now, it could be too late, you know? Ok, so -- well, this is goodbye, then.
Fox: Wait, wait, hold on a sec! What do you mean, "this is goodbye"?
Theresa: Well, I mean, I got to get little ethan and then we got to get out of the country, and I can't, you know, talk to my family because they're going to try to talk me out of it, so could you guys, you know, say goodbye to them for me?
Whitney: Ok, just try to think about this before you go --
theresa: Can you also tell them that I love them, please, and that I'll be in touch as soon as I can? Ok. All right.
Fox: Theresa, no, wait a second. Hey, I'm not going to let you do this. D music] You sit down to dinner -- but what's left to eat? Avian flu, mad cow, farmed salmon. Almost everything has been tainted by scandal. Is it overblown? Or is our menu about to change? Tonight on global national with kevin newman.?W @ccxrúx
theresa: Please don't tell me that I can't do this, ok? Little ethan is my child. He's my flesh and blood, and rebecca stole him from me, so I have to get him back, ok, so just don't try to stop me.
Fox: I'm not.
Whitney: I'm sorry, what?
Fox: I can't let you do this alone, theresa. I'm coming with you.
Theresa: Fox, thank you so much.
Whitney: Am I the only one here that sees that this is a very, very bad idea?
Theresa: No. No, no, whitney, you just got to understand that I love little ethan more than my own life and I can't just abandon him because rebecca, she bewitched a judge and she bedazzled a judge into taking my rights away as a parent. I have to be with my son and he needs to be with me, not in that house of horrors.
Whitney: Yeah, well, even so, what you're planning to do --
theresa: It's the only choice that I have left. Look, when little ethan and I get where we're going, I'm going to be in touch, ok? I promise.
Whitney: God. I love you. I mean, you're the best friend I ever had.
Theresa: I love you, too. You know, no one's ever had a better friend than you. Ok. All right.
Gwen: Honey, when I said before that you had the chance to save little ethan from being raised by my mother and julian but refused, I'm sorry. I snapped at you and I did not mean to. It's just you know how my mother gets when it comes to little ethan. And even though I snapped at you, and I'm sorry for that, I still think that I'm right in wanting to adopt little ethan. Honey, I think it would be the best thing for him.
Ethan: Gwen, I really don't want to get into this again. I mean, you know how I feel.
Gwen: I know you don't want to take theresa's son from her. I know.
Ethan: That's right. Besides, I mean, theresa may well be able to overturn the judge's custody decision on appeal, and then no one will be able to adopt her son. So, look, either we wait to adopt or we have to come up with some other way to be parents.
Gwen: Well, actually, I think I may have come up with another way.
Gwen: Yeah. I was talking to sheridan earlier and she mentioned that you and I, you know, we could try surrogacy.
Gwen: Yeah, we could have another woman carry our biological child.
Ethan: I can't believe we didn't think of this before.
Gwen: I know. So you like the idea, then?
Ethan: I love it. No, I love it. It's a great idea.
Gwen: Oh, good!
Ethan: Honey, I mean, we can -- we can have a baby. I mean, we can have our own baby.
Ethan: This is great!
Luis: No, for me to sit back and let alistair ruin other people's lives? No, that's not going to happen. He g got to be stopped, and it might as well be by me.
Mrs. Wallace: Well, my ding-dong daughter, sunk yet again! Boy, I have never seen luis so determined! You know, the veins bursting, the nostrils flaring, and those muscles were so nice and tight. I liked that part. Boy, it won't be long before luis -- luis reveals all of alistair's secrets, including the fact that he was charlie, your accomplice in kidnapping sheridan and stealing her baby!
Beth: Could you shut up? I cannot think!
Mrs. Wallace: Luis is going to know that martin is his son with sheridan. They're going flying off into the sunset together, and you, little missy --
you're going to jail where you belong yeah, yeah, yeah!
Beth: No, that is not going to happen!
Mrs. Wallace: Oh, yeah, you're -- hey, bethie. Hey, hey, bethie, where you -- ugh! Oh, where's the gin? Precious better not have finished it all because I need a drink.
Pilar: So what happens next, eve?
Eve: Well, I'm going to order an additional test to assess where you are, and I'm hoping that you were diagnosed early enough so that we can just beat this thing together.
Pilar: I hope so.
Eve: And remember, avoiding stress is part of any cure.
Pilar: Ok. I understand.
Eve: Ok, good.
Pilar: Eve? I don't mean to pry. You seem really stressed lately, and I can sense the tension between you and whitney.
Eve: Yeah. Yes, there's -- there is a lot of tension between whitney and me right now, yeah.
Pilar: You're doing me this amazing favor to pay for my medical expenses, so if I could be like a sounding board or somebody you can turn to as a friend, please just don't hesitate to ask.
Eve: Thank you, pilar. That's so sweet of you. I appreciate it. But talking about my problems with whitney is not going to help me solve them.
Pilar: What about grace? Why don't you call her in italy? I know she had problems with the girls before she left and I'm sure she can empathize with your situation with whitney.
Eve: Grace knew a lot of my secrets. I mean, just secrets and things that you keep private, you know, for one reason or another.
Pilar: And now without grace here, you must feel so alone.
Eve: You know, pilar, a lot of people think that my life must be perfect, but it's not. My life, like me, is far from perfect. Well, the truth is whitney found that out firsthand.
Pilar: You can unburden yourself with me. I've kept ivy's secrets well over 25 years. I can keep yours.
Eve: Oh, god, that bitch, pilar. How did you put up with her for so long?
Pilar: Well, she was good to me and my family, although that kindness came with a price. I knew that ethan was sam's son almost from the beginning.
Eve: Oh, my god.
Pilar: Yeah, it was a terrible burden to car, an absolute terrible burden. I knew other things, as well, things I suspect have to do with you and whitney and julian.
Eve: Like what kind of things do you know?
Pilar: Ivy had photos of you and julian together, and she was using th t to blackmail you to try to win sam away from grace.
Eve: Oh, my god, you knew about that all this time? That's been more than five years ago! Oh.
Pilar: See, eve? You can trust me to keep your confidence.
Eve: Oh, god, pilar. I wouldn't even know where to start. I met julian when I was singing in the original blue note in boston. He came in there one night and just swept me off my feet. He said that he knew people that could make me a star -- and maybe he did, I don't know -- but after a while, it didn't even matter because we were so head-over-heels in love with each other. Anyway, that's how the photos came to be. When alistair found out that julian planned on marrying a woman of color, julian crane, heir to the crane empire, he bullied him and he threatened him until he left me and married ivy. God, I -- I used to hate him so much for abandoning me that way. But I don't anymore. I know he did the best he could with this monster that he has for a father. I still can't believe that alistair crane had our baby just kidnapped right out of the hospital the night he was born.
Pilar: You and julian had a son? Who is he? Where is he?
Chad: Whitney. What's wrong?
Whitney: I promised I wouldn't say anything, but I know I can trust you with anything.
Chad: With your life.
Whitney: First I lose my mother, and now it looks like I lost theresa.
Chad: Why? What happened?
Whitney: Well, theresa is planning on sneaking into the crane mansion, with fox's help, getting little ethan, and taking him out of the country.
Chad: Man. Look, I won't say anything to anybody. But I think theresa's making a mistake, a big one.
Rebecca: Who's there? Well, I guess I have to see for myself.
Rebecca: Why am I not surprised?
rebecca: What are you doing? You left the door open. You're letting all the heat out.
Fox: Right. Yeah, I forgot. Guess I didn'T. Look at that. Perfect. All right, I'm going to go see little ethan.
Rebecca: Oh, well, tell him how much you enjoyed boarding school.
Fox: Yeah, hated it.
Rebecca: Then lie. You just lied to me, fox. Hmm. Something is going on.
Fox: That was close.
Theresa: Yeah, rebecca almost saw me.
Fox: Yeah, well, she didn't see you. That's the important thing, right?
Theresa: Yeah. Thank you again for helping me get my little boy back.
Fox: I'm a fool in love. What can I say?
Theresa: You're my hero.
Little ethan: Mommy!
Theresa: Ok, honey, come here. Listen, you and I, we're going to go on a really big adventure right now, but we got to be really, really, really quiet, ok? All right, stand up right here. Ah, your jacket. Can put your jacket on for me? All right, this way.
Theresa: Ok, thank you again for sneaking me onto the estate in the back seat of your car, but we got to take it from here, ok? I mean, I don't want you getting into any trouble, so --
fox: Yeah, ok. Ok. All right. Listen, you two be careful, all right?
Fox: Be careful, and then you call me when you get wherever it is you're going, all right?
Theresa: I will. I will.
Fox: Here. Take this.
Theresa: Oh, money.
Fox: Take all that, ok?
Theresa: My goodness.
Fox: I want you to take my car.
Fox: I'm going to take the back stairs down and I'm going to distract dragon lady. You need to make tracks, ok?
Theresa: Ok. I -- I love you, fox. I love you.
Fox: I love you. Be careful.
Fox: All right, see you.
Theresa: Ok. Ready, sweetheart? Real quiet. Let's go. Come on. Quiet.
Pilar: Wow, you and julian have a son together?
Eve: Only we don't know who he is or where he is.
Pilar: This is why whitney's estranged from you? Because she found out that you and julian have a son?
Eve: No. See, whitney's caught me alone with julian several times very recently when we've been discussing how we can go about finding our son, but consequently she thinks that we're having an affair. And I'm afraid to tell her the truth because I don't think that she would forgive me for having kept it a secret in the first place, nor would simone, nor would T.C. They would just think that our whole life has just been one colossal lie.
Pilar: Oh, eve, but those girls, T.C., They love you so much, I'm sure they would understand.
Eve: Pilar, I have gone back and forth and debated this so much. The only thing I can hope is that if julian were to find our son, then whitney and simone could be made to understand what had happened and to forgive me for having been less than honest about my past. However, there is T.C. And no matter how much T.C. Loves me, I -- I seriously doubt that he would ever forgive me for having been with julian.
Pilar: But if julian finds your son, everyone will know, regardless, eve.
Eve: Hey, it could be all a moot point anyway because alistair knows who our son is and where he is, and he has blocked julian's search for him at every turn. He's just bound and determined that we're not going to find him.
Pilar: That man's cruelty knows no bounds. To keep a child from his parents?
Alistair: Sheridan and luis, both clueless that they're baby martin's true parents. Not only will you never be together with your son, you'll never be with each other. Hmm.
Luis: Hey, hank. Thanks for dropping everything to meet me. Did you get what I asked for?
Hank: It's all there. What are you going to do with it?
Luis: Yeah, I'm applying for a job at crane industries. Wish me luck on my interview.
Hank: Well, you're crazy to think that alistair will ever let you work for one of his companies.
Luis: Oh, yeah, I'm crazy -- crazy like a fox.
Alistair: Oh, beth, my dear. 'S always a pleasure to se a beautiful woman in my office, but I'm not sure it's wise for us to be seen together. People might get suspicious, wonder what our connection is.
Beth: I came to warn you. Luis is out to get you.
Alistair: Tell me something new.
Beth: This is new. Luis just left my house and he's determined to gain access to crane industries, learn all of your secrets, and use them to bring you down.
Alistair: Hmm, luis can't hurt me. He's tried countless times, only to fail. His latest attempt will yiel the same result -- nada. So relax, my dear. Come and have a drink with me. Tell me how that sassy simian precious is doing.
Beth: No, I'd better leave before anyone sees me.
Alistair: I see you're still the artful dodger whose survival instincts so enthralled and excited charlie. She had quite a thing for you, bethie.
Beth: But you were charlie.
Alistair: Indeed, I was. That made you uncomfortable when we kissed. Now there's no reason to be. 0
Eve: I'm so glad I confed in you, pilar. But you've got to focus now on you and your getting well. Finding my son is not your problem.
Pilar: Wait. Wait, your son. Oh, my god, I can't believe I didn't think about this the minute you talked about you and julian having a son. Well, he came to town looking for his parents and all he had was an old newspaper clipping from some harmony paper. Chad. Chad harris must be your son with julian.
Chad: Now, look, I know you're worried about theresa, ok -- I am, too -- but she did what she's doing knowing full well what can happen if she gets caught.
Chad: All right, there's nothing we can do but wish her luck on getting little ethan out of the country before rebecca finds out.
Whitney: Well, see, that's what scares me. I mean, theresa was already arrested for kidnapping before. If she gets caught this time, the cranes will make sure that she's sent away for the rest of her life. You know, except for fox and sheridan, that whole family is -- it's dangerous.
Chad: Baby, I know how you feel about the cranes. That's why I paid alistair back the money he gave me to take you out for valentine's day. And from now on, we're going to have nothing to do with the cranes.
Whitney: Hmm. You know what? I love the sound of that.
Chad: And I love you.
Gwen: Honey, I am so glad that you want to consider surrogacy. But that does not mean I've given up on wanting to adopt little ethan.
Ethan: No. No, gwen, I'm not taking theresa's son away from her.
Gwen: Ok, you promised me that we could adopt any child I want, remember, and I want to adopt little ethan. Honey, we have got to save that little boy from being raised by my mother and julian.
Ethan: Gwen, I said we could be a part of his life, but I'm not going to hurt theresa to do that.
Gwen: So theresa's feelings matter more than mine do. I mean, you still love her, don't you? You love her more than me and little ethan. You know what -- you always have and you always will.
Theresa: Oh, my god! Oh, my god! Oh, jeez!
Rebecca: Well, theresa. You've been caught red-handed trying to kidnap that poor child yet again.
Theresa: Ok, look, you cannot have my son, ok?
Rebecca: Don't you just love a happy ending? Oh, and believe me, theresa, this is the end -- for you.
Eve: The odds of chad being my son are infinitesimal.
Pilar: But possible.
Woman: We have a janitorial position that needs filling immediately.
Luis: [Disguised voice] I can start toda
officer: We had a report of a kidnapping.
