proofread by Laurie
Man's voice: Your father's got plans for you in Mexico, lady. Maybe funeral plans.
Luis: Thank god you're back in my life. Sweet dreams.
[Sheridan is dreaming about time she spent with her Mother, Katherine.]
Katherine: See the big dipper right up there? That's mine. And do you see -- see, if you look, you see the handle and the cup?
Sheridan: Yes, I see -- I see it.
Katherine: Oh, good! And see that one there? That's the little dipper, and guess whose that is -- that's yours.
Alistair: What the hell? Get back in the house! You'll catch your death.
Katherine: Sheridan couldn't sleep, Alistair, so we came out to count the stars.
Alistair: You're mad. Enough of this tomfoolery.
Katherine: No --
Alistair: Silence, Sheridan. Cranes don't cry.
Katherine: Don't be so rough with her, Alistair, please! Oh!
Sheridan: Mommy! Mommy!
Katherine: Did you hear that??
Katherine: I swear I heard a child crying for her mommy. Did you hear that?
Martin: Honey, it was probably a bird. Or maybe it was a dream.
Katherine: Oh, maybe. Maybe it was a dream. But it sounded so real. It was so real.
Alistair: To you, big dipper. And you, little dipper. Soon Katherine and Sheridan will join you in the heavens with their paramours Martin and Luis, and then ay you all burn out!
Alistair: Small wonder an idiot wife bears an idiot daughter. Stargazers, dreamers, both of them. I, for one, have my feet firmly on the ground. You are welcome to the lot of them. Once they're gone, they'll be no threat to me whatsoever.
Whitney: You know, I don't care what your father had to say. I don't love you, Fox. I'm in love with Chad. This is -- this is so ridiculous.
Fox: Maybe, but you sure are mad about it.
Whitney: Yeah, well, maybe my father's right about the Crane men, you know, being all alike. I cannot believe your father was talking the same stuff, like I had feelings for you. This is --
Fox: This is what? Crazy? Maybe. But maybe he's got a point, you know, because I haven't done anything to make you mad. But you're mad, so maybe deep down inside, you love me as much as I love you.
Whitney: No. Sorry.
Fox: You're not going anywhere. Hold on a second.
Kay: Hello? Tabitha? Hello? Ugh. That old witch hung up on me. All I can say is that Tabitha had better stop Miguel from seeing Charity, or else I am -- ah!
Miguel: Why don't you want me to go next door to check on Charity?
Tabitha: Well, it's not that I don't want you to, but you've just arrived, and you haven't checked on Maria, and you know that little lambikins needs her daddy.
Miguel: But you said that she was sleeping.
Tabitha: Yes, well, I'll wake her. I mean, no, she'll wake herself.
Miguel: I'll just be a minute, all right? I'll see her when I get back. Look, I'm going to leave my backpack here. Can you just watch it for me? It's got my wallet in it.
Tabitha: Oh, dragon's teeth! Miguel better not stop Charity from leaving Harmony now. Endora, be mummy's darling little demon and practice your spells of confusion, hmm? Try the third one, all right? One, two, three!
Miguel: Where did this come from? What the heck? [A bat seems to swoop at Miguel.]
Ivy: Well. So, this is it. You're -- you're leaving.
Charity: Yeah. There's nothing left for me here, you know? Miguel's got Kay and the baby, and no matter how much we love each other, I just get in the way. So I'm going to leave and I'm going to stop causing so much unhappiness here.
Ivy: Good luck.
Charity: Thanks. Maybe I can find happiness somewhere else with someone else. Well, I'll miss you.
Ivy: Yeah. I wish I had the courage to do what you're doing.
Charity: Leave Harmony? Why? What are you afraid of?
Ivy: The truth.
Irma: Eve's a whore, you fool. She's a jezebel and a harlot who pretends to be something she's not and never has been -- an upstanding woman!
Julian: Dear god, it's going to be a bloodbath.
T.C.: Eve, is your Aunt Irma crazy? Why is she calling you all these horrible names?
Irma: Why? Because it's true, you fool. She's a jezebel and a harlot. I mean, you seem like a nice young man. You don't belong with a skanky hooker like her. She's a drug-addicted, cocaine-sniffing, booze-swizzling whore. Has been ever since she was 18. You're a disgrace!
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.
Julian: My poor Eve. This is so much worse than I ever thought it could be.
T.C.: Eve? Eve, honey, talk to me. Why is your Aunt Irma spitting these horrible lies?
Liz: Careful, T.C. You know, I don't think it's very good for poor Aunt Irma to get upset like this. Just the sight of Eve seems to make her crazy.
T.C.: Liz, but why?
Irma: Why? Wake up, Porgy. Are you deaf as well as stupid? Your wife's a tart, as easy as a rabbit in heat! How long has she been taking you for a ride, huh? Open your eyes. Look at her. She's a whore in sheep's clothing.
Charity: Ivy -- Ivy, what do you mean you're afraid of the truth? What truth?
[Ivy flashes back to her talk with Eve.]
Eve: So far, Liz hasn't been able to find a way to blow me out of the water, not without T.C. seeing her for the nasty piece of work that she is. But eventually, she will find a way to bring me down. And when she does, I'm taking you with me.
Ivy: Oh. Just don't pay any -- any attention at all. I've had a -- I've had a little too much to drink. But trust me, you're right to get out of Harmony because love -- it's just not all it's cracked up to be.
Charity: You're the one who used to always say love was the only thing worth living for.
Ivy: So now we've both wised up. You know, I -- I've come to realize that the only person you can ever count on is yourself. I'm fond of you, Charity. I really, really am, and that's why I want you just to get out of here, and you find a new town, and you make a fresh start, and you make our dream come true when you become the biggest fashion designer in the world.
Charity: I don't know if that's ever really going to happen.
Ivy: Whatever you do, you're going to make me proud. But more importantly, you're going to make yourself proud, and I want you to promise me that every morning when you get up and you look in the mirror, you tell the person looking back at you that you're the only one who matters, ok?
Charity: Ok. I'll try.
Tabitha: Oh, you're such a talented little demonita. You're doing an a-plus job keeping Miguel away from that horrid Charity. Oh, this one's going to be a handful when she reaches puberty.
Tabitha: Huh? All right. Now let's try another one -- the fifth one, all right? The fifth spell -- yes, ye..
Miguel: This is insane. I've never seen fog like this.
Miguel: I can't even tell where the Bennetts' house is. Ah! Why am I so nervous? It was just an owl. Ah!
Whitney: Get your hands off me!
Fox: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to grab you. I just -- I guess I came on a little too strong. I apologize.
Whitney: Yeah, a little. I guess I should have expected a Crane man would take a woman by force.
Fox: Take a -- what are you -- I don't do that. You know I'd never do that.
Whitney: I know the Crane reputation, ok? Ok, so what is all this talk about my feelings, huh? What exactly are you accusing me of?
Fox: Well, Whitney, I'm not really accusing you of anything. I'm just telling you that I love you.
Whitney: Yeah, but, see, I don't want to hear that.
Fox: Ok, fine. Fine. Look, I just want you not to be mad at me, ok? Whitney, listen, I can't help that I love you, all right? I tried to keep it a secret and I tried not to come between you and Chad. You're so mad at me. Just -- just tell me what you want me to do, and I'll do it.
Whitney: Oh --
Fox: What? What is it? What's wrong? And as, keep kids playing for fun
Martin: Only 20 miles to the airport. You all right?
Katherine: I'm fine.
Martin: You can't lie to me, darling. What's wrong?
Katherine: The child that I heard crying -- maybe it was a dream. But it sounded like Sheridan, like she was crying and screaming.
Martin: Come on, don't let that upset you. For weeks, we've thought of nothing but Harmony, and now, well, I'm on my way. You know, all sorts of memories are being stirred up for both of us. It's perfectly natural they're popping up in your dreams.
Katherine: Martin, please be careful when you're up there. Alistair is so much more dangerous than we knew. He killed your son Antonio. Martin, I couldn't bear it if you didn't come back to me.
Martin: I'll do my best, but I'm taking him down at all costs. I made a vow, and I'll do what I have to do.
Katherine: Facing those we loved, the people we left behind -- that could be so much worse.
Martin: True. And we can't blame them for their anger. We've hurt so many. But I'd do it again, Katherine. Your life was hell, and I had to get you away from Alistair. But Pilar and Luis, Theresa, Miguel -- they may not understand, or Paloma, for that matter.
Katherine: Or Sheridan or Julian.
Luis: You know, with all the troubles, there is one bright spot. I get to see my sister who I never got to know. She's going to love you.
[Sheridan continues to dream about her mother and father.]
Sheridan: Mommy, mommy! You hit mommy!
Katherine: Alistair, please -- please put her down.
Alistair: The hell I will. We've already established you're a terrible wife. As a mother, you're worse. We have nannies to take care of this child! Your place is in my bed! You're a disgrace to the house of Crane!
Sheridan: Daddy, put me down, please.
Alistair: Be quiet! And don't use that appalling nickname. It's "father" to you. You're a Crane, not some common street urchin. Behave!
Katherine: No --
Sheridan: No! No!
Katherine: No! No, Alistair! Oh, Sheridan, no!
Fox: What? What is it? What's wrong, Whitney? You look so upset.
[Whitney flashes back to happy times with Fox.]
Whitney: How's this?
Fox: Well, a little closer. All right -- and perfect. Absolutely perfect.
Whitney: Wait -- no, no, it can't be. I was just missing Chad, and I was probably just projecting my feelings for him onto Fox. I mean, that --
Fox: What the hell are you talking about?
Whitney: God, Fox, just leave me alone, ok? You're just confusing me.
Kay: Charity has to leave town! If I don't get Miguel, I'll have nothing. I'll be alone and barren in the swamp, living on pork and beans and stuck working in that cannery forever. Maria will grow up. She'll be too ashamed to bring her friends home. "Gee, your mommy smells like a tuna fish sandwich." What are they going to say about me when I die? "Old Kay Bennett -- she could gut a mackerel like nobody's business." No, no, I have to see what Tabitha's doing.
Tabitha: Oh! Look, my little puppet. You did such a bang-up job, Miguel has entered the twilight zone. Oh, I can't wait for you to sit your examinations. You'll tie those demonic professors' tails in knots.
Tabitha: Oh -- Lenox residence.
Kay: Where do you get off hanging up on me?
Tabitha: Don't take that tone with me, young lady. Endora and I are here pulling your feet from the fire.
Kay: Sorry. Sorry. What's going on? Where's Miguel?
Tabitha: Well, he came home and I tried to stop him from going next door to see Charity, but --
Kay: And did it work?
Tabitha: Unfortunately, no.
Kay: Oh, no! He cannot see her! Is she gone yet?
Tabitha: No. No, not yet. But soon, very soon. She's just saying her goodbyes to Ivy. and Miguel seems to be batting zero.
[Looking outside, Tabitha can see Miguel rolling on the ground fighting off a "bat".]
Miguel: Get off of me! This is crazy!
Charity: Ok, well, thank you for everything you've done for me, and everything you've taught me, and I just hope you get everything you deserve, Ivy.
Ivy: Yeah. That's what I'm afraid of.
Charity: Well, would you -- would you say my goodbyes to Sam, please?
Ivy: Oh, yeah. Sure, of course, of course. Do you know where you're going?
Charity: No, no. I guess I'll just decide when I get to the bus station. But I'll keep in touch.
Ivy: Ok, I understand. You take care of yourself, and don't look back. Good luck.
Irma: Thankless little slut. Thought she knew it all. Broke her mama's heart and broke mine, too. Spit on everything that we taught her. Spit on the Lord's path. Huh. She went from singing in the church to singing in a roadhouse. Only 18, and she had to go up north to become a great singer. Ended up singing in some dirty nightclubs, high on booze and drugs, getting men to pay her for sex to supply her nasty habits. Oh, I reached out the blessed hand of forgiveness, but you threw it away.
[Flashback to Eve singing in a nightclub when Irma comes to visit her.]
Eve: And my baby's gone mmm my baby's gone
[Cheers and whistles]
Eve: Singing is thirsty work. [Eve staggers offstage.]
Man: Whoa, watch yourself, gorgeous. You don't want to hurt yourself. Here you go. Take a sip of this.
Irma: You should've seen her -- high as a kite on booze and drugs, showing off her nasty self to any yahoo with a dollar and mischief in his heart. But that wasn't the worst of it. She got her hooks in some rich white man.
Liz's inner voice: Gentlemen, a drum roll, please.
Irma: Got him to pay for her diamonds and her drugs, and then he sets her up in an apartment and makes her his mistress.
Alistair: What a thrill it must've been for great-grandfather to steal this land from those upstart Russells. A pity I've become such a public figure. If someone betrayed great-grandfather, he'd simply take out a gun and shoot them, while I must dispense my justice in secret through underlings. What pleasure it would give me to take out those traitors, Katherine and Martin, personally. To wrap my hands around her lovely, adulterous neck, feel her terrified pulse in my hands like some quivering bird, and then --
[Alistair laughs while he pretends to strangle Katherine.]
Martin: Whoa, what's wrong? Honey, are you all right? Should I stop the car?
Katherine: I can't breathe! [Katherine is strangling and struggling desperately to draw a breath.]
Martin: I'll stop the car.
Katherine: I'm choking! No! No, we're almost to the airport. You can't miss your flight.
Martin: Ok, listen, breathe. Just breathe, breathe. Relax. Oh, it's ok. Huh? There you go.
Katherine: Ok. Ooh, better.
Martin: Is that better?
Katherine: I was choking. Oh.
Katherine: I don't know what that was.
Martin: You'll be fine.
Katherine: Oh --
Katherine: My protector. You know, we've never spent a night apart.
Martin: I know. I'll miss you terribly.
Katherine: I'll miss you.
Luis: Sheridan -- Sheridan, you're ok. You're ok. Look -- nothing's wrong. Was it a bad dream?
Sheridan: No. No, this time --
Sheridan: I was remembering a time when I -- I couldn't have been more than 5 or 6. I couldn't sleep, so my mother brought me out to the gazebo to count stars, and I was so happy. Then my father came out and found us out there and he -- he screamed at her for bringing me out at night. And he grabbed me and he -- he slapped her and knocked her to the ground.
Luis: Alistair's a pig. Hey, that's all over now, ok? And once we get Paloma back to Harmony, we'll take care of Alistair. We're going to make him pay for Antonio's death and for trying to keep us apart, ok? Nothing's going to harm you now.
Sheridan: Please don't ever leave me.
Luis: I won't. Hey -- look, you don't have to worry, ok, about your father or anything else. Nothing is going to hurt you again, ok?
Flight attendant: Ok, guys, we're landing! Buckle up! Tour luggage. [She runs down the aisle with maraccas.]
Kay: Well, what's going on now? Can you see anything?
Tabitha: Well, Charity's leaving, and Miguel is right nearby on the ground!
Kay: Oh, no.
Tabitha: Not to worry. Oh, Endora is so advanced, she's cooked up this little spell -- yes! She's cooked up this little spell to make Miguel think that he's in a dismal fog, surrounded by bats in a feeding frenzy! The fog is so thick, he can't see anything. He can't see Charity leaving the Bennett house, and she can't see him! She's walked right past him down the street carrying the bags!
Kay: Thank god.
Tabitha: Oh, no. No, god has nothing to do with it, dear. [Playing with Endora] Eensy, weensy spider should we try spiders next, huh? Eensy, weensy spider
Miguel: Charity? Where are you?
Ivy: Oh! Well, here I am. I have been drinking all night and I still feel terrible. I'll tell you, Charity's the lucky one getting out of this town while she still can.
[Pounding on door]
Ivy: Ahem. Oh, yeah.
Miguel: Mrs. Winthrop. Where did that crazy fog come from? It's like pea soup. There was all these bats flying around my head.
Ivy: Bats? Oh, Miguel, you shouldn't drink the cheap stuff.
Miguel: No, look.
Ivy: Ok -- no bats, no fog.
Miguel: But it was right out here.
Ivy: Well, that's the great thing about Harmony -- you don't like the weather, you just stick around. And you, young man -- you should stick to soda.
Miguel: What? Well, anyway, I just came to check on Charity.
Ivy: Oh. Well, you're too late. She's gone.
Miguel: Gone? Gone where?
Ivy: I don't know.
Miguel: Well, when?
Ivy: You know -- well, just a minute ago. I'm surprised you didn't see her.
Miguel: No, I told you, I couldn't see anything because of that fog. I -- I've got to stop her. I can't let her leave Harmony.
Ivy: Well, good luck. Oh, you know what? It's the bus station. She's going to the bus station because she's leaving town for good.
Miguel: What? No! I can't let her leave. I got to stop her.
Fox: Well, I got to tell you, I don't see what's so confusing about it. I've been saying the same thing to you over and over and over again since we were standing up there on the cliff -- that I love you. I come down here, and I say the same thing to you. What's so confusing about that?
Whitney: Well, nothing. I -- I just wish you would just back off!
Fox: Are you mad because I said I love you, or am I right, and it's something else?
Whitney: Just stop it, ok?
Fox: You're shaken up, you're questioning your love for Chad, and you're thinking about us.
Whitney: Shut up, ok? Just shut up.
Clerk: Where to, miss?
Charity: Hey. I don't know. Do you have those -- the tourist passes that allow you to go anywhere in the state?
Clerk: Not just the state, it's the whole country. You want one of those?
Charity: Yeah, please.
Clerk: That's $85.
Clerk: There's a bus leaving in five minutes for New York that'll take you anywhere you want to go.
Clerk: Ok, let's see -- there you go.
Charity: Thank you.
Clerk: All right.
Charity: Well, wish me luck.
Clerk: Pretty girl like you? You'll make your own luck.
Miguel: Charity, wait!
Guard: Sounds like a friend of yours is calling you.
Charity: I've said my goodbyes.
Miguel: No, Charity, don't leave!
Miguel: Charity! Wait! I love you, and I know that you love me. Please don't leave.
T.C.: What the hell are you talking about? My wife was some white man's mistress?
Irma: Swear on my grave. I saw her myself in that nasty apartment.
[Flashback to a time in the apartment.]
Eve: Oh, Julian, where are you?
Irma: What did I tell you? Where's Daddy Warbucks now? Left you as soon as he found out you had his bun in your oven? You should've seen her -- drunk and high as a kite. And --
Liz's inner voice: Come on, Aunt Irma. Tell him about the baby.
T.C.: This is making me sick!
Eve: I know, T.C. I'm so sorry.
T.C.: Honey, you have nothing to be sorry about. This woman is spitting all of this filth. Now, I know that she's old, I know that she's senile, and I should understand. But, lady, I want you to apologize. Apologize to my wife right now!
Kay: Hello? Tabitha, are you there? Tabitha?
Tabitha: Eensy, weensy spider
Kay: Tabitha, pick up the darn phone!
Tabitha: Oh, Kay, are you still there?
Kay: Of course I'm still here! My life's hanging in the balance! Now, tell me, what is going on?
Tabitha: Oh, Charity's long gone.
Tabitha: Yes, she hopped a cab, and off she went. And Miguel went screaming after her like a bat out of hell.
Kay: Oh, no, no, no, no, no! He cannot catch her! Oh! Ow --
Miguel: Charity, please. Just don't go.
Guard: Hey, are you -- you sure you don't want to wait for your friend?
Charity: Yeah, I'm sure.
Guard: You better hurry if you want to catch that New York bus.
Miguel: Charity, wait!
Guard: Whoa, whoa, where's your ticket? [The guard stops Miguel and won't let him go into the boarding area after Charity. Miguel yells from the door and looks on through a window.]
Miguel: Look, I don't have my wallet, ok? Can you please just let me in? It's a matter of life and death!
Guard: You ain't getting in here without a ticket. That's what they all say. Whoa, whoa, back off, kid, or I'll call a cop! If she wanted to talk to you, she'd have waited.
Miguel: Charity! Charity, please don't go! I love you!
Charity: I love you, too, Miguel, but I can't stay. I just cause you pain. [Charity sobs, uncontrollably.]
Charity: Hello? [Charity answers her cell phone.]
Miguel: Charity, stop. Ok, they won't let me in. All right, can you at least just -- just come out here and just talk to me? Give me -- give me a chance. Give me a chance to change your mind. I love you.
[Charity hangs up her cell phone, looks at it, then drops it into a trash can.]
Miguel: No. Charity. Charity! Charity! Charity, don't go! Charity!
Fox: I'm right, aren't I? Whitney, you wouldn't be so nutso if I hadn't touched a nerve.
Whitney: No. I'm in love with Chad, Fox, ok? [Whitney leaves.]
Fox: My god, I'm right. She does have feelings for me. Maybe we do have a chance together.
Liz's inner voice: Dear god. T.C. heard it straight from the horse's mouth. What's it going to take to get through to him?
Julian: Oh, thank god he doesn't believe the old bat. Eve may be safe. [Julian is watching from the window.]
T.C.: You come into my house and you talk trash like this? I want you to apologize to my wife this instant!
Irma: I would rather eat dirt and die! She is an evil sinner!
T.C.: The hell she is. My wife is a wonderful, warm --
Irma: Oh, open your eyes, sap! She knows the color of the ceilings in half the bedrooms in Boston!
T.C.: Old lady, you better shut up, or I'm going to shut you up.
Eve: No, T.C.!
T.C.: No? Sweetheart, I am not going to listen to these lies one more second!
Eve: She's not lying.
Eve: What she's saying is true.
Alistair: Peaceful night in Harmony and all's right with the world -- my world. My plans are humming along, and best of all, before the final curtain, Sheridan and Luis will never set eyes on Katherine and Martin.
Katherine: Martin, I really don't want you to go. We don't know what Alistair's going to do. This might be the last time I see you alive.
Martin: Don't you bet on it. Soon we'll be together forever, and since we have a few minutes, why don't we make every minute count.
Katherine: Ok. [Katherine and Martin kiss.]
Sheridan: Oh -- oh, Luis, look. Look! Isn't that sweet? That couple kissing each other goodbye? Oh, I hope we're that much in love when we're their age. [Sheridan watches Katherine and Martin kiss.]
Luis: What, are you kidding me? We'll still be at it in wheelchairs.
Katherine: Martin, oh, my god.
Katherine: There's our children!
NEXT ON PASSIONS:
Sheridan: Why does that woman look so familiar to me? I know you!
Whitney: Unlike my mother, I'm a one-man woman.
Theresa: And you're sure that man is Chad?
T.C.: You lied to me all these years, Eve!
