Whitney: This isn't some kind of joke or something, right? I mean, I'm really your mystery woman?
Fox: Yes. It's you.
Whitney: But, Fox, how, you know? Why me?
Fox: Because you're perfect. Because you're my dream girl. Because you're so beautiful. And because you're so smart. You have my heart, Whitney. You always have.
Liz: Those crazy soap operas that Eve tivo's are a godsend. Aunt Irma loves them. What are you doing, T.C.?
T.C.: Well, since aunt Irma and Eve have been out of touch for so long, I thought I would just take some of the great family photos we have here, and put together a nice scrapbook, so aunt Irma can catch up.
Liz: That's terrific.
[Liz flashes back to Irma's opinions of Eve.]
Irma: Whore! Drug addict! Trollop! Tramp! You'll rue the day when you strayed from the lord's path!
Liz: That's a marvelous idea, T.C. You're a genius.
Miguel: Dr. Russell, will mama be ok?
Eve: I can't make any promises, Miguel. Your mother's disease is so unpredictable, I don't know what's going to happen.
Miguel: Dr. Russell, please, we just lost Antonio. I can't lose my mother, too. Is there anything that I can do?
Eve: Just stay here and pray. Your prayers and your strength, that's what she needs right now.
Miguel: I'll do that.
Miguel: Can you hear me, mama? I'm praying for you. We all are.
Eve: Poor Pilar, just lying there so ill. And yet all I can think about is how any minute, Liz is going to destroy my life.
Ivy: You poor guy. You are so tense. Your shoulders -- they're all knotted up.
Sam: Oh, just when you think things are back to normal, something horrible like that plane explosion happens. It comes out of nowhere. Poor Pilar. Her family's had more than their fair share of tragedy, and now that Antonio's dead, to lose a child -- and Luis and Miguel to lose their brother, Theresa -- ooh. Oh, yeah, that feels good. I mean, you're a parent. You can imagine what Pilar's going through. I mean, to outlive Ethan, Kay, Jessica, or Noah. I mean, even Charity. I feel like she's my own child now. I couldn't bear it.
Ivy: That is not going to happen, Sam Bennett. Do you hear me? It will not happen.
Sam: Let's just pray that it doesn't. Poor Liz. Ooh! Oh, oh. Wow. You're really strong.
Ivy: Uh -- what about poor Liz?
Sam: Oh, you know that she and Antonio were very close at one time. You know, they were still very close friends. You know, it's complicated. Oh! Oh, wow. Here. Thank you.
Ivy: Hmm. [Sam kisses Ivy.]
Sam: Look, you know what I think we should do? I think we should go over to the Russells' and offer our condolences to Liz.
Ivy: Oh, yeah. If that's what you think we should do, yeah.
Sam: Well, I'll check the station house, see if everything's clear, and then we'll zip over there, ok?
[Flashback to Ivy's talk with Liz.]
Liz: I want eve to be rejected by everyone, shunned by her daughters, and abandoned by her husband. And if my sister decides to take you down with her, it's no skin off my nose.
Ivy: Only Alistair can drop a bigger nuclear bomb on my life than Liz. If she exposes Eve, I'm going to lose everything.
Alistair: Prince charming and sleeping beauty. Hmm. Time's almost up. Tick, tick, tick. Soon -- very soon -- Luis, you, and my lovely daughter will be dead. [Alistair watches Luis and Sheridan from the hospital room door.] Julian! What the hell do you think you're doing?
Julian: Must I spell it out to you? I'm here to stop you from hurting my sister. You will never harm her ever again.
Sheridan: You're still here.
Luis: I told you I wasn't going to leave you.
Luis: Ok? No more nightmares?
Sheridan: No, they stopped. I think I was dreaming of you.
Luis: I love you. I don't know what happened when you were a little girl, but I'll tell you something -- I am going to protect you. I'm never going to let anything happen to you again, ok?
Sheridan: Luis, there's something that you can't even protect me from, something that will ruin me, destroy my life. There's nothing that you can do to stop it.
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.
Whitney: No. No, Fox, I'm sorry, this isn't -- this isn't right.
Fox: It's destiny.
Whitney: Yeah, but you could have any woman you wanted to.
Fox: Well, then I choose you. Whitney, look at the moon. You know, the same god that created that moon, the same god that created this earth, the same god that created you and me made me love you. Whitney, it's more than chemistry. This is magic.
Whitney: No. No. This isn't right. It's -- it's not real.
Fox: Whitney, this is real. This is the most real thing that I've ever known. This is love. It's a fact. It's carved in stone. And I want you to believe in my love for you, Whitney, because it's never going to go away. It's never going to go away. Thank you, god! Thank you, Theresa!
Fox: Yeah. Yeah, I can't believe that she told you, but it's good that you know. It's good that you know, yeah. You have no idea what it was like for me to walk around with my heart in my hand and not being able to share it with you.
Whitney: So all this time, I mean --
Fox: You hear all these funny clichés about love, right, like -- like how you just fall into it or -- or how it strikes you like a bolt of lightning. And I'm telling you, all those clichés are true, Whitney. They're all true. Because ever since that night I heard you singing --
[Flashback to the night Fox heard Whitney sing.]
Whitney: Something about him moves me the way that he softly speaks my name
Fox: She's so beautiful. Her voice is like an angel's.
Whitney: Something about him shakes me the way that he always reads my mind
Fox: And then -- and then wham. I knew that I'd never get you out of my soul. What can I say? You're in there. Whitney, you're in there forever.
Alistair: Laying your hands on me has become a bad habit, Julian. Some bad habits can be fatal.
Julian: I mean it, father. You leave Sheridan alone or I'll --
Alistair: You'll what? Hmm, never forget the evidence of your past crimes can be in the hands of the authorities at any moment of my choosing. You won't be able to protect your pretty black mistress from prison.
Julian: You bastard. You're destroying Eve, and all she wants, all we both want is the name of our son.
Alistair: You waste valuable time on things that mean nothing. Direct your energies to one purpose and one purpose only -- expanding and conserving the Crane holdings for future generations.
Julian: My son with Eve is part of that future generation.
Alistair: Never! Do you think you're the first Crane to spread his seed in the pursuit of pleasure? Hmm, hardly. Over the centuries, Crane men have littered the globe with their illegitimate offspring. But no dusky bastard will ever be a part of the Crane empire.
Luis: Well, whatever's out there, don't you worry about it because I'll protect you. Come on, what could possibly ruin your life?
Sheridan: You, Luis. You'll ruin my life.
Luis: How can you say I'll ruin your life? I love you.
Sheridan: I'm sorry, Luis. Look, you won't -- you won't do it on purpose. It's just how you'll eventually think of me. That's what will kill our love. That's what will destroy me.
Luis: No, nothing is going to stop me from loving you forever.
Sheridan: Yes, Luis, something will. Look, ever since I came back from St. Lisa's with Antonio and remembered my former life, I've lived in fear that one day you'll realize that I am the one who tore your family apart.
Luis: Sheridan, you're not making sense here.
Sheridan: Just listen to me, Luis, all right? I'm a jinx. I'm some kind of Jonah. Bad things happen when I'm around. Who's to blame for the rift between you and Antonio? Me.
Luis: Listen, you cannot blame yourself. You had amnesia. You didn't know that Antonio was my brother. Sheridan, come on, think logically, ok?
Sheridan: Luis, logic is all well and good, but you know as well as I do what matters is what's in your heart, and my heart is telling me that I am to blame. Look at all the fights, all the arguments. You two almost killed each other so many times, and now Antonio is dead because of me. This is my fault.
Luis: No, it's not, Sheridan, and you can't beat yourself up for something that you can't control.
Sheridan: My father tried to kill me. Antonio is dead because of me. God, talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I should've just made him get off that plane.
Luis: Sheridan, you can blame your father. You know, whenever something goes wrong, he's around. Sheridan, please, the man is a monster.
Julian: You're speaking of my son, father, your grandson. I want to know where he is. I want to know his name.
Alistair: Most children stop whining for what they can't have by the age of 10. You'll never find him.
Julian: You know, it's so unwise of you to be lurking around this hospital tonight. If Luis sees you, he will kill you.
Alistair: There's always one enraged peasant or another out for my blood. It's part of the spice of life. You should be the worried one. T.C. Russell is after you, Julian, and when he finally catches up, you'll be dead.
Alistair: Good luck finding your missing son then.
Sam: Hey, Liz.
Sam: We came by to offer you our condolences. We know how important Antonio was in your life.
Liz: That's really kind of you. It still feels like a bad dream, you know? God, I wish you'd all known him on St. Lisa's. He was so sweet, charming, funny. I can't believe he's dead.
T.C.: It's those damn Cranes. Everything they touch just seems to rot from the inside.
Sam: T.C. --
Ivy: It's ok, it's ok.
T.C.: Sorry, Ivy. Didn't mean to offend you.
Ivy: No, really, I totally understand.
Liz: I still can't believe he's dead. You're a good man, Sam Bennett. Thank you for your kind thoughts.
Sam: It's the least I could do.
T.C.: Sam, listen, I want to show you something. Come here. There's some great old photos of your kids. Man, I found this one picture of Noah when he was a cub scout, and he had a black eye.
Ivy: Who's that?
Liz: Oh, someone you should be very interested to know. That's Eve's Aunt Irma, and she knows every nasty little detail about Eve's life.
Ivy: Such as?
Liz: Oh, she knows that Eve was a drunken, drug-addicted whore, and, as Aunt Irma likes to say, she got a bun in her oven from a white man who wouldn't marry her. We're just waiting for Eve to get home so that Aunt Irma can tell T.C. everything she knows.
Ivy: You can't do that. If you expose Eve, then you'll expose me, and I'll lose Sam!
Liz: Sorry, ivy. Seems your time has come. All of Harmony's liars, cheats, and whores are going down tonight, and there is nothing that you or Eve can do to stop it.
Miguel: Just lie here and get better, mama. I'm right here. I'm not going anywhere. Mama, mama, don't try to get up. Don't try to get up.
Pilar: Miguelito, I love you.
Miguel: I love you, too, ok, but don't talk. Just conserve your energy. You need to rest. Mama? Help! Somebody help! Mama? Mama?
Eve: Oh, she's in v-fib. Get a crash cart, stat.
Miguel: Is she going to be ok, Dr. Russell?
Eve: Miguel, get out of here now.
Miguel: Please, god, let my mother live.
Whitney: No, Fox, this is -- this is insane. This is completely insane. I mean, I can't be your mystery love. No. And what about Theresa? I mean, this is --
Fox: Whitney, Theresa? Theresa and I, we were honest with each other from the start. I knew that she was never over my half brother Ethan and she knew that I had a mystery love. Now, granted, she didn't know that it was you, but, Whitney, she knew there was somebody.
Whitney: So you've felt this way about me ever since that first night at the Blue Note? I mean, that was a good year ago.
Fox: Yeah, ever since then.
[Flashback to the night Fox first heard Whitney sing.]
Whitney: Never want to leave him now never want to say goodbye
Fox: Oh, my god. Whitney.
Whitney: Only want to hold him near for the rest of my life so you've loved me all this time?
Fox: Yeah, I guess I have. Whitney, I loved you then. I know that I love you now. I'm always going to love you.
Whitney: Damn you, Fox. Damn you to hell. [Whitney slaps Fox.]
Julian: Old man!
Alistair: You mean "father"?
Julian: You let me worry about T.C. Russell, but you will listen to me. You're going to stay away from Luis and Sheridan. I promised mother that I would protect her. That's exactly what I'm going to do.
Alistair: Don't mention your mother in my presence. And you've certainly been lax in your so-called protection. Only a twist of fate saved your sister from death on my plane while taking the life of young Antonio.
Julian: Damn you.
Alistair: Protect yourself, Julian. Very soon, T.C. Russell will come for you, and you won't survive. As for Sheridan, more tragedy is on the way -- for her, for Luis, and his family. Pity, there's nothing you can do to stop it.
Julian: You watch me.
Alistair: Yes, I'll watch you.
Luis: Sheridan, you can't blame yourself for Antonio's death. I don't blame you. You can't take on the guilt of the world. Your mother's death all those years ago -- you have to realize it had nothing to do with you, honey.
Sheridan: Luis, I'm guilty of so much. And what about your mother even?
Luis: My mother? What do you mean?
Sheridan: Her disease. We all know that stress is what made her so much worse. She even said herself that she'd kept it quiet because she didn't want to worry any of us, when all the time she was beside herself because of you, me, and Antonio. My god, don't tell me that it isn't my fault, because it is!
Luis: It isn't your fault, ok? All right, Sheridan, my mother, she wasn't just stressed out about us -- Theresa, little Ethan, Miguel and Charity. And besides, ok, she's going to be fine.
Sheridan: Ok, what if -- what if she dies?
Luis: Oh --
Sheridan: Can you not tell me that there won't be some part of you that will blame me if she does die, that two members of your family -- Antonio and Pilar -- are dead because of me?
Miguel: Luis, come quick.
Luis: What's wrong?
Miguel: It's mama. She's dying.
Nurse: Her heart rate's dropping, doctor.
Eve: Give her one amp atropine. Come on, now, Pilar, we can't lose you now.
Nurse: Her blood pressure's falling fast, doctor!
Eve: Get that heart rate up, Pilar. Come on, get that heart rate up!
Nurse: We're losing her, doctor.
Fox: What was that for?
Whitney: All the time we were together, Fox, you were just acting. Playing the good friend, while all the while, you were thinking about me, you know, looking at me, fantasizing about me.
Fox: Wait a second. Don't get all bent out of shape, ok? It wasn't like that, Whitney. What was I supposed to do, huh? Chad was always there, and if I would've told you, it would've just been a burden for you to carry.
Whitney: You could have been honest with me.
Fox: How? How was I supposed to be honest with you, huh? What'd you want me to do? You want me to arrange a romantic dinner, light a bunch of candles, give you some roses, fine wine, play some opera? A real fantasy land?
[Whitney thinks about a romantic dinner with Fox.]
Whitney: I don't understand. This is all so beautiful, but why? Why did you do all this for me?
Fox: Because. Because you deserve the perfect setting for what I'm about ready to tell you. What I'm about ready to tell you is going to change your life.
Whitney: What is it?
Fox: I love you. I love you with all my heart and soul.
Whitney: No. No, no, it's -- it's the moonlight, the scent of roses. This is midsummer madness.
Fox: No. No, Whitney, this is love. You're my one true love. You're my destiny.
[End of Whitney's fantasy.]
Fox: So if I'd gotten all duded up for you, gotten you alone, told you how much I loved you, even though you were with Chad, would it have made a difference?
Sam: That's amazing, isn't it? I thought all of Eve's relatives were dead.
T.C.: Same here.
Sam: Well, she looks nice, right?
T.C.: Don't believe it, Sam. I think "battle-ax" is the word. She's cranky. I mean, she sits around here, she mumbles all the time, and I can't understand a word she's saying, but I know she doesn't like me.
Sam: Hey, you just turn on that charm.
T.C.: I'm way ahead of you, partner. I mean, that's what I'm doing. I'm putting together a scrapbook to show her the life that Eve and I had together. I mean, it's the only family that she has. Maybe she can connect to her.
Sam: Listen, don't worry. I'm sure she'll love you just as much as she loves Eve.
T.C.: That's the plan.
Irma: Ha. Revenge -- a dish best served cold as ice.
Liz: A family evening with good friends. Look at all of us. No one would know that disaster is about to strike.
Ivy: You are unbelievable. A man you used to love is dead, and this is all you can think about? What is wrong with you?
Liz: Nothing that my sister's destruction won't cure. Eve was very lucky tonight. She avoided her doom at every turn. But she can't escape the inevitable. I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. If I only wait long enough, something wonderful will happen.
Ivy: Well, then just get it over with. Let the old woman tell T.C. everything now.
Liz: Oh, I don't think so. I want Eve here when it happens. I want to see her face when her life falls apart, when she loses her husband and her family. I want to see the disgust on T.C.'s face when he realizes that Eve is not the perfect little woman.
Ivy: You're obsessed.
Liz: Oh, you bet I am. I want to see her pain. I want to see her torn apart and suffering, just like I was when she abandoned me to that pervert! Eve deserves everything that I am going to do. And when she gets on that train to her own personal hell, I want her to know that I'm the one who bought her the ticket.
Julian: Eve what's wrong? What is it?
Eve: Oh, my poor, dear Pilar.
Luis: Eve? How's mama? What happened?
Eve: Luis --
Sheridan: Oh, no. Pilar's dead, isn't she? She's really dead.
Fox: Come on, Whitney, if I would've surprised you with a romantic dinner and told you what was in my heart, you would've hauled off and slugged me, you know it. I was afraid you never would've spoken to me again. So I just kind of figured, you know, if I couldn't have you, at least I could be close to you.
Whitney: Like Cyrano de Bergerac.
Fox: Exactly, yes.
Fox: I mean, not quite as glib, but I think much better looking. Look, you have no idea what it was like for me in L.A, to love you and not be able to tell you. Whitney, those days we had together, they were -- they were wonderful, but you were always waiting for Chad to get back home, you know?
Fox: It was torture. Every day since I fell in love with you has been torture.
Whitney: No. Ok, Fox, I want you to stop. Please just stop this because I'm with Chad right now and I'm really in love with him, so --
Fox: I know that. I think Chad's great, Whitney, and I wouldn't hurt him for the world. You know, my grandfather would probably call me a fool and tell me that a Crane's supposed to go after what he wants and take it, regardless of the consequences. Maybe I'm no Crane, huh? So anyway -- uh -- now you know. Whitney? But there's one thing that you'll never know, Whitney. That's how hard it was for me not to say anything, when all I wanted to do was touch you, hold you in my arms and tell you that I love you more than the world.
Whitney: No. Just --
Fox: You're in my heart, Whitney. You're in my soul, and I love you more than life itself.
Ivy: Don't think for one minute that you are going to get away with this. There is no way in hell I'm going to let you bring me down when you bring down Eve.
Liz: Oh, my. Better make it decaf for you.
Ivy: I have waited too long and worked far too hard to give up on Sam now. No, if you expose Eve and, in turn, expose me, I am going to make it my life's mission to make sure that your life is just one unspeakable horror after another! I will destroy you, Liz! I will destroy you!
Sheridan: No. She's dead, isn't she? Pilar's dead.
Eve: No. No, she's all right for now. We managed to stabilize her.
Miguel: Well, is she going to be ok?
Eve: Well, Miguel, her condition's tentative. Her disease has progressed to a volatile state, but we're going to monitor her closely.
Luis: So will we.
Sheridan: Julian, what are you doing here?
Julian: Uh -- I came by to check on a friend and I just stopped by to see if Pilar -- if there's anything that I can do for your mother or your family -- the hospital bills, perhaps --
Luis: No, no. We'll take care of our own. Thank you. If you want to do me a favor, you can tell Alistair to watch his back. I know that he's responsible for Antonio's death, and he will pay.
Julian: I understand. I'll pass it on.
Luis: Now, we'd like to go check on mama.
Eve: Of course. It'll make her happy to see you when she wakes up.
Sheridan: I want to help, can I get you, Luis, or, Miguel, some food or coffee from the cafeteria?
Eve: Yeah, that's a very good idea. If we can't get these two to sleep, then at least we can get them something to eat. I'm going to get some medication I need for your mother, but I will be checking in on her.
Miguel: Thanks, Dr. Russell.
Luis: Thanks, doctor.
Eve: I don't want to worry them, but I'm not at all happy about Pilar's prognosis. She's very ill.
Julian: Yes. Well, I'm worried about you. I wish there was something I could do to help. Have you -- have you heard from T.C. or Liz?
Eve: No, but I can't worry about that now. Pilar's critical. I've got a patient to take care of. Will you excuse me, Julian? I have to get to my office.
Julian: All right, well, I'll come with you.
Luis: Sheridan, stop. You're doing the same thing again. Now, listen to me -- mama's illness had nothing to do with you, ok?
Sheridan: I want to believe that.
Luis: No, she got sick, ok, that's all. You had nothing to do with it. You hear me?
Sheridan: Yeah, I hear you. Look, I'll -- I'll go get some sandwiches. I'll be right back, ok?
Sheridan: Oh, Luis. All I've ever done is cause you pain.
Alistair: How ever did I end up with such a sap for a daughter? Oh, Sheridan. You make it too easy to cause you pain. No challenge there, and so easy to finally get rid of you and that damn Luis forever.
Luis and Miguel: Holy marry, mother of god, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Luis: Mama, you're always begging for us to pray more, and now you' m missing your big chance to see it. Mama, you've got to make it through this, ok? I'm telling you, you're going to do it. We're going to do this together as a family, ok? I promise you. You've got to make it, ok? Please.
Alistair: Good evening, Sheridan.
Sheridan: Father. Damn you! Antonio is dead! I'm a widow tonight because you killed him!
Alistair: Show some respect when you speak to your father.
Sheridan: Respect? What about Luis and his entire family, the pain that they're going through all because my father is a monster, a murderer!
Alistair: I'm not the monster, my dear. I didn't have a hand in any of your troubles. You are the monster, Sheridan.
Alistair: A monster of bad luck and misery. If you care to see the cause of your lover's pain, look in the mirror.
Fox: Whitney, I love you.
Whitney: Please, Fox. Look, I need you to stop, ok? I can't hear it any more of this.
Fox: No, I can't stop. Whitney, I love you. I think that you're perfect. You are everything I've ever wanted in a woman and in a partner and in a wife. And I know that deep down inside, you feel the exact same way that I do. Otherwise, you wouldn't stand here and listen to me for so long.
Fox: And you're hiding. Whitney, you're hiding behind your feelings for Chad because it feels safe and because it's familiar. I see the way you look at me. And I've seen your eyes light up when I walk into a room, and I have felt you melt in my arms when we dance.
Whitney: Uh-uh, no.
Fox: I know that you love me. I know that you love me. All you have to do is admit it to yourself. Just take a risk, ok? I will be here for you if you fall.
Whitney: All right, Fox. Yes, I do love you. I love you so much.
Ivy: If you expose me, I will ruin your life. I will take you down so far, you will never get up again!
Liz: That's what I think of your threat, Ivy. You can't do anything to me. You are not a Crane anymore. You don't have the power to stop me from jaywalking.
Ivy: You're not going to get away with this.
Liz: You snotty little bitch! This is war! And sadly in war, innocent people get hurt. But you are not an innocent, are you? Eve will lose T.C. You will lose Sam. And there's not a damn thing you can do to stop me.
T.C.: Look, Sam, I'm going to show this to Aunt Irma now. That old woman's going to like me once she sees the life that Eve and I have together. Hell, Sam, we're Harmony's version of "The Cosby Show."
Sam: Wait a minute, wait a minute. I thought Liz wanted us to wait until eve got home.
T.C.: Sam, I can do that when she gets back. She'll see it again. But I want aunt Irma to see this now. I can't wait to see the expression on her face.
Eve: And there's nothing that I can do to stop it. It's my doom. It's coming. It's bearing down on me like a train. I'm the damsel in distress tied to the tracks. And I hear it coming around the bend, and it's getting closer and closer, and any second, it'll hit.
Julian: The hero always saves the maiden in the nick of time.
Eve: Not this time. This time, she gets cut to pieces.
NEXT ON PASSIONS:
Miguel: If Charity left Harmony, I don't think I'd be able to go on.
Ivy: You and Miguel? You're not going to work out.
Julian: We can't just sit back and let Liz win.
Eve: Liz has already won, and there's nothing I can do about it.
Sheridan: I'm taking my bags, I'm getting in my car, and I'm leaving you forever.
