proofread by Laurie
T.C.: Look on the bright side, Eve. Now that you've been caught, you can go shack up with your ex-lover, Julian Crane -- that is, if he's really your ex.
Eve: I'm not going home with Julian.
T.C.: Why not, Eve? Now's a good chance.
Julian: You're always welcome there, Eve.
T.C.: You see what I mean? The father of your bastard baby is inviting you. Go on. Go on before I change my mind and choke the living daylights out of this creep.
Eve: Julian, would you please leave? Please, for my sake?
Julian: I'll go, but I'll be waiting outside.
Liz: What a gentleman.
[Door opens and closes]
Eve: I understand all of your disappointment in me, and your anger. I'm not the woman that you thought I was.
T.C.: You're not even close.
Eve: But I am begging you, don't throw away everything that we have -- our beautiful family --
T.C.: We're not throwing anything away, Eve. You did this on your own.
Eve: I made a terrible mistake, and I'm so sorry, but I was afraid to tell you all the truth.
T.C.: It's too little, too late. I thought you were leaving.
Eve: Simone? Whitney?
Whitney: Don't. Don't.
Eve: You have to believe me. All the times that you saw me with Julian, it wasn't about an affair. It was just about the son that we had together.
Whitney: Is that supposed to make me feel better? Because it doesn't. Mom, go to hell, ok, and don't come back.
Eve: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Irma: You were right, child. This was better than the Mohican Sun.
Liz's inner voice: Just like hitting the jackpot.
Sheridan: You can't mean that, Luis.
Luis: Yeah, I can, and I do. I'm telling you, Alistair better have killed my father because if I find out he walked out on our family, he's nothing but a lowlife bum.
Sheridan: Look, whatever made him leave, he's still your father.
Luis: You know what? That's no excuse. If my father walked out on mama and us kids, just left us to fend for ourselves while he was out living the life of Riley, I'm telling you, I will hunt him down and I'll kill him myself.
Luis: I'm serious, Sheridan. There was never a phone call, never a post card. He never sent us any money. Uh-uh -- any man like that is no kind of man at all. And mama swears that he loves us so much?
Martin: I do love you all. I do. [Martin and Katherine listen to Luis and Sheridan talking.]
Katherine: Shh, shh. You don't want them to hear you.
Luis: My father's disappearance is the whole reason that we had to send Paloma down here to Mexico. There was no money to feed her, or to clothe her, or to send her to the private schools like mama wanted. I'm telling you, my father better be dead, otherwise I got a score to settle with him.
Sheridan: Look, I don't know what happened to your father, but personally, I hope that he's alive.
Luis: Why? If he is, that means he's nothing but a lowlife bum.
Sheridan: Maybe he just couldn't contact your mother for some reason -- maybe, you know for some reason that we just don't understand.
Luis: Yeah, well, I'm not buying that.
Sheridan: I just can't believe that your father would willingly leave your mother. Pilar is such a loving and giving person. I don't think that she would fall in love with your father, and marry him, if he wasn't such a good man. You know, she wouldn't light a candle in the window every night for all these years if he wasn't worth it.
Luis: Love's a strange thing. Maybe she was blinded to the man that he really was.
Sheridan: I don't think so. I know you. I know Miguel. I knew Antonio. I don't think any lowlife bum would have three amazing sons if he wasn't pretty incredible himself. You'll never convince me that your father wasn't a good man, no matter what happened to him.
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.
Sheridan: You look drained, Luis.
Luis: I'm just tired.
Sheridan: It's no wonder.
Luis: What do you say we hit the sack, hmm?
Martin: There you are.
Sheridan: Hey. We were just heading to bed.
Katherine: I know you've had a long day, dear. Get some sleep.
Sheridan: Yeah, we will. See you in the morning.
Martin: Don't be late. Tia Maria makes the most wonderful breakfast burritos.
Sheridan: Can't wait.
Luis: Good night.
Katherine: Good night.
Sheridan: Good night.
Katherine: Good night. [Luis and Sheridan go upstairs to their room at the Inn.]
Martin: You heard him. My son hates my guts.
Katherine: No, he doesn't. He doesn't hate your guts. If Luis knew the truth, he would understand that his father is an honorable and noble man. Martin, a man so brave that he gave up everything he loved to help a friend in need. I never could have escaped Alistair without you. You saved my life. You are a hero.
Martin: Yeah, hardly. A hero doesn't abandon his wife and small children for any reason. No, Luis will never understand, not in a million years.
Katherine: Give your son some credit.
Martin: All he'd see is that I left my -- my wife, him, and his brothers and sisters, all to go live in paradise with another woman.
Katherine: It wasn't like that.
Martin: You know that and I know that, but that's not how it would look. I wouldn't blame any of them for never being able to forgive me ever again.
Luis: Well, it's a tough day. I'll tell you, I'll be glad when morning comes.
Sheridan: Look, I -- I know you were hoping for a different reception from Paloma.
Luis: Hmm. I didn't expect her to run and jump in my arms, but I just had no idea how rejected she felt.
Sheridan: Well, you know, you can't blame her. All she knows is that she was the only child in the family to be raised away from home.
Luis: I just thought she understood how much we all loved her and missed her. Mama would have done anything for her to be able to stay in Harmony. If only her paycheck was bigger, and -- I don't know, maybe I just didn't contribute enough.
Sheridan: Oh, don't -- don't take this on your self, all right? You have helped your mother out with the family ever since you were a little boy. You've done more than your share.
Luis: Well, it wasn't enough. You know, I should have put in more overtime on the police force. I could have brought Paloma back to Harmony years ago. I got no one to blame for Paloma's hurt but myself.
Sheridan: That is not true.
Luis: Well, it's not mama's fault. This all goes back to my father. If he hadn't run out on us, Paloma would still be in Harmony. We'd be together as a big, happy family. Bastard.
Sheridan: Luis --
Luis: Ok. You're right. We don't know whether my father left intentionally, or he was killed. I guess it's just not knowing that's so damned frustrating, and I just wish I hadn't taken it out on Paloma.
Sheridan: Look, don't blame yourself, ok? You were shocked when you saw her at that nightclub.
Luis: You think she's ever going to forgive me for being so harsh on her?
Sheridan: Of course she will. Just give her time to digest everything that she's learned tonight. You know, when she realizes how much you all love her, she'll come back to Harmony with us.
Luis: I hope so.
Sheridan: You get some sleep.
Luis: What about you?
Sheridan: Um -- I'm still really wired. I'll just sit by you here for a while.
Luis: I feel bad. The first night in Mexico should be a little more romantic.
Sheridan: You're romantic even when you sleep. Close your eyes.
Luis: Sheridan --
Sheridan: I know you love me. I love you, too.
Whitney: I'm sorry you had to go through this, daddy.
T.C.: I am, too, honey. But don't worry about me. I'm just worried about you two. I want you two to understand that this was not your fault.
Simone: I know, daddy.
Irma: Well, just hope they turn out to be more like their father and don't become sluts like their mama.
T.C.: That is enough, old lady.
Irma: Hey, don't shoot the messenger, mister.
Liz: Aunt Irma, I think T.C. is just upset. It's been a terrible shock, everything that's happened tonight.
Irma: Hmm. Well, then he's a bigger sucker than he looks. You-all got anything to drink around here?
Liz: I'll get you something.
Simone: You didn't know any of this about mom?
T.C.: Not a thing, sugar bear.
Simone: I don't understand it. All my life, all I've ever wanted to do is grow up and be like her. And now I don't know what to do.
T.C.: None of us do. But I tell you this -- this is my last day, this is my last night, being played for a fool and a sucker. After your mother leaves tonight, she is never coming back here again.
Eve: I don't even know how I'm supposed to do this. I -- I can't pack up a whole lifetime of memories and just walk away. Oh, god. My husband and my daughters. My whole life. My whole life.
T.C.: I don't know what I would do without you two girls.
Whitney: You're never going to have to worry about that, daddy.
Simone: I love you, daddy.
T.C.: I love the both of you, too.
Whitney: I hate her. You know, I really do.
T.C.: Honey, please.
Whitney: Why? What? What, I shouldn't say anything? I mean, look what she's done to her family, to the people that she supposedly loves more than anything else in the world. You know what? I think she does deserve to move into the mansion with Julian Crane.
T.C.: The man who destroyed my life, and the woman who took away my marriage. They're a perfect couple. I'm sorry. I shouldn't be talking like this around you two.
Whitney: Why not, daddy? It's true. She deserves to be alone and miserable. I mean, that's what she gets for not loving us, right?
T.C.: Honey, you just feel bad just like I do. Just --
Simone: It's like she died or something. It's like my mother died. [Simone runs out.]
Whitney: I'll go talk to her.
Chad: I'll come with you.
T.C.: No, I should talk to her.
Liz: No, T.C. Let them try and work it out by themselves. Come on, they need some time to absorb what they've learned tonight. Their beloved mother, their perfect role model, is not who they thought she was at all. She's nothing but a phony, a sinner pretending to be a decent wife and mother.
Sheridan: Sleep tight, my darling. I'll be back.
[Sheridan slips out as Luis begins to dream about time with his father.]
Luis: Did you get one yet?
Martin: No, my impatient son. Catching a fish is just like many other things. It takes time and peace and quiet. Hey, you want to know a little secret? Fish don't like a lot of noise, especially early in the morning.
Luis: Ok, so, how long do we have to wait?
Martin: Well, that's the fun part. You never know. It's always a big surprise when you feel that little tug at the end of your line. I love you, son.
Luis: Don't talk so loud, papa. You'll make them mad.
Martin: Oh, ok.
Luis: I feel something! Is it a big fish, papa?
Martin: I don't know; it might be. Now, just hold on to your pole real tight, and reel him in nice and easy, ok?
Luis: I got one, I got one! I caught myself a big fish!
Martin: Oh! Oh, Luis! Luis!
Luis: Papa! Papa! Help! Help me!
Katherine: Someday, someday soon when we go back to Harmony, we'll find a way to make Pilar and your children understand why you had to leave, and I want to help you, Martin.
Martin: Thank you, Katherine. Thank you, my darling, but even your support won't be enough. Our families will never understand. Even Sheridan will blame me for you being gone just the same way that Luis blames me.
Katherine: But I can tell that she feels close to me.
Martin: That's because you're a warm, compassionate, a loving person just like the mother she remembers, the mother she thinks is dead. If you tell her who you are, that you've been here in Mexico, happy with me all these years, while she's endured god knows what at Alistair's hand -- don't, Katherine. You and I have no choice. We must remain dead in our children's mind. We can never tell them the truth. After all these years --
Katherine: Please, Martin, don't say that to me. I have to believe that Sheridan will love me enough to forgive me.
Martin: And I'd love that to be true for the both of us, but it doesn't work that way. It's better that our children believe we died than to tell the truth, and they hate us forever.
Julian: What's happened to me? I should be dancing in the street now that T.C. knows about Eve and me and is throwing her out. It's my chance to have her back. Why do I feel so lousy?
Eve: Well, I don't know why I'm so shocked. I knew that you couldn't keep a secret like mine hidden forever. I knew T.C. and the girls would hate me. Damn Liz for outing me. But then again, it's like she says -- I don't have anybody to blame but myself.
Whitney: Simone, it's going to be ok.
Simone: Don't touch me!
Whitney: Look, I just want you to know that you're not alone.
Simone: It sure feels like I am. How long have you known about mom and Julian? How could you not tell me that our mom had a baby before we came along?
Whitney: Well, I didn't know that part. Honest, ok? And about mom and Julian -- I only suspected.
Simone: And you didn't tell me? Did you think I wasn't old enough to handle that our mom is a liar and a tramp?
Whitney: Look, I didn't want you to get upset.
Simone: Please, Whitney. You couldn't possibly care about my feelings. You stole my boyfriend right out from under my nose.
Whitney: Ok, can you please stop saying that?
Simone: What kind of genes run in this family, anyway? Is daddy the only person with any sense of honor at all? At least now we know where you get it from!
Whitney: Simone, please --
Simone: If the shoe fits!
Whitney: Ok. You know what, Chad? Maybe you can get through to her, because I certainly can't. [Whitney leaves Chad to talk to Simone.]
Fox: Whitney, listen, I'm -- I feel horrible. I'm so sorry.
Whitney: You know, if it wasn't for your father, none of this would have happened.
Fox: That's a low blow, don't you think?
Whitney: Well, it's true. And please don't try to defend him, ok, because I don't want to hear it. You know, I actually do believe one thing that my mother said. Before she met your father, she was a nice girl, but thanks to him, she turned to drugs and alcohol and having a baby out of wedlock. Oh, my god, my poor father -- I don't know how he's going to handle this.
Fox: Yeah, well -- listen, I feel bad for your father, really, but I'm not going to stand here and badmouth your mother, Whitney. From what I've seen, she's a wonderful woman. She's a caring doctor, and like it or not, she's a loving mother. So you stand there and you blame my dad -- you do it all day and all night. But do yourself a favor and ease up on the woman who raised you, huh?
Whitney: Oh, well, you don't have to worry about that because I still blame your father, and the rest of the Cranes. As a matter of fact, all of you can go straight to hell.
[Luis continues to dream.]
Luis: Papa, papa! Help! Help me!
Martin: Don't panic, son!
Luis: I'm scared, papa!
Martin: I'm coming!
Martin: You know, I'm still planning to go back to Harmony.
Katherine: Oh, Martin, I was hoping you were going to change your mind.
Martin: No. No, I just postponed it while Sheridan and Luis were here. As a matter of fact, you know what? I have to go and change my airline reservation.
Katherine: Oh, do that in the morning.
Martin: It's better tonight. Why don't you come inside with me, hmm?
Katherine: No, I think I'll just stay out here for a bit. It's quiet and so pretty. I'll be fine. I'll be fine. You go.
Martin: Don't be long, hmm?
Katherine: I won't.
Katherine: I can't let Martin see how frightened I am. It'll only make it harder for him. Oh, dear god -- please, god, don't let Sheridan hate me. I love my daughter with all my heart and soul.
Sheridan: What did you say?
Katherine: Sheridan, how -- how long have you been there?
Sheridan: Oh, I just came out. Why? Are you ok?
Katherine: Oh, I'm fine. I -- I'm really fine.
Sheridan: You know what? I interrupted a private moment. I'm sorry. I'll --
Katherine: Oh, no, no. Don't leave, please. I love talking with you.
Sheridan: I love talking with you, too. You know, isn't it funny how you can meet someone for the first time and instantly feel like you're kindred spirits?
Katherine: Yes. Yes, it is.
Sheridan: You know, I -- I don't mean to pry, but earlier when I mentioned that I'd lost my child, I heard you say that you lost a child, too. And just now when I came in, I thought I heard you say your daughter?
Katherine: That's right. I -- I was thinking about my little girl.
Sheridan: I'm so sorry for your loss. How did she die?
Katherine: She's not dead. She didn't die. She's very much alive.
Sheridan: Oh, I just assumed --
Katherine: Oh, well, of course you did. I mean, why wouldn't you? It's just that I haven't seen her in such a long time, and I miss her terribly.
Sheridan: Well, where is she? Why haven't you seen her?
Katherine: It's complicated. She was raised by her father.
Sheridan: And he won't let you visit her?
Katherine: Well, as I said, it's complicated. If I showed up in her life, out of the blue now, it would just confuse her.
Sheridan: If you say so. Personally, I don't know how you do it.
Katherine: It's not easy.
Sheridan: I'm not judging, believe me. If I'm ever lucky enough to have another child, I don't care who it is, I wouldn't let anyone come between us.
Katherine: It's hard to understand. My husband -- I mean, my first husband -- was a very cruel, ruthless man. He abused me verbally, emotionally, mentally, even physically.
Sheridan: God, that's awful. Why did you marry him?
Katherine: I was young. I didn't know what he was like.
Sheridan: I -- I am so sorry. It's no wonder you left him. Why couldn't you take your daughter with you?
Katherine: I was afraid. I knew that if I took her away from him, he would move heaven and earth to find us, and I knew that he would not only punish me, but he would punish her.
Sheridan: I am so sorry. It just must have been agonizing for you. For your little girl, too.
Katherine: It was.
Sheridan: I lost my mother when I was very young.
Katherine: So you said.
Sheridan: Everybody says that it's easier in time, being without her, but that's just not true. It just gets harder. I miss her so much.
Martin: He's not breathing! Luis? Luis? My god, please don't die. Luis, please don't die.
Martin: Oh, thank you, god. Thank you for not taking my son!
Chad: Um --
Simone: I don't want to talk to you, either, Chad.
Chad: Simone, I just --
Simone: Not now, ok?
Chad: Uh -- you know, what's going on?
Fox: Yeah, I don't know. I don't know. She's more upset than she was before. I didn't mean to --
Whitney: Is that what all you Cranes say when you ruin people's lives? Why don't you go ahead and tell me what it is with you people, anyway. I mean, are you so arrogant and self-centered that you don't realize what you're doing to people? Or you do realize it, and you just don't care, and everyone else be damned? Is that it?
Chad: Whitney, why are you taking all this out on Fox?
Fox: It's ok.
Chad: No, no, come on, baby. Apologize. He's been a friend to both of us.
Whitney: If that's what you think, Chad, you don't know anything.
Chad: And what's that supposed to mean?
Eve: So, I'll -- I'll let you know where I'm going to be.
T.C.: I don't give a damn where you go.
Eve: Please don't say that. You know I --
T.C.: I've already heard it, all right? Just -- just go, ok?
Eve: But the girls --
T.C.: I don't think the girls are too interested in goodbyes, Eve.
Eve: Would you tell them that I -- I said I love them?
T.C.: For whatever it's worth. I'll get the door, and just leave your keys.
Liz: No, no, T.C. let me see her out.
Eve: I'm never, ever going to forgive you for this.
Liz: Gee, I wonder why I don't give a damn.
Eve: You ruined my life.
Liz: And I thought I'd only just begun. It's not over, Eve. Your key.
Eve: T.C. --
Liz: Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Julian: Please don't do this to yourself.
Eve: You should have left. I have to go. Oh, god. Oh -- I left my car keys in there. Oh, and I just can't go back in there and see those looks of hatred on their face again.
Julian: You don't have to. I'll drive you.
Julian: It's up to you.
Eve: Well, there's no room at the B&B. Pilar told me that was full before she went to the hospital.
Julian: Come to my place.
Eve: I can't do that.
Eve: Rebecca. You're a married man, Julian.
Julian: Yes, Rebecca. I'd almost forgotten.
Eve: No, it's ok. I just -- I'll just stay in the on-call room at the hospital and figure out what to do tomorrow.
Julian: We'll talk about it in the car.
Liz: T.C., I'm so sorry. You know, I should have left Harmony the minute I realized that my sister was here and pretending that she was something that I knew she wasn't. None of this would have ever happened.
T.C.: It would have come out some way, Liz.
Liz: Yes, but it wouldn't have been my fault. Eve is right. This is all because of me.
T.C.: No, Liz. If anything, I owe you a thanks.
Liz: For what? Ruining your life?
T.C.: No. For saving me from being an even bigger fool than what I was. Liz, I want to thank you for helping me see the truth.
Fox: Look, Whitney --
Whitney: Just leave me alone, Fox. Please.
Fox: Ok. I'll even take off, if that's what you want.
Whitney: As a matter of fact, it is what I want.
Fox: Really? Just so you know, Chad's right, all right? No matter which way you slice this, it's not my fault. My only crime here is falling in love with you.
Whitney: God, will you please stop saying that?
Fox: Why stop saying it? Why stop saying it? It's true.
Whitney: Because a Crane man in love with a Russell woman means only one thing -- a life full of pain, lies, and regret. My mother is a perfect example of that, and I'm not going to follow in her footsteps.
Fox: Whitney, come on. Your mother and my father --
Whitney: Fox, please just leave, ok? And don't come back.
Chad: Whitney, baby, you got to cool it. Hey, man, I'm sorry about this.
Fox: It's all right. It's ok. Whitney, I really do hope you feel better. Really.
[Luis continues to dream.]
Luis: Papa, what happened?
Martin: Oh, Luis, thank god.
Luis: I was scared, papa. I couldn't remember my swimming lessons.
Martin: It's all right. I'm right here. I wouldn't let anything happen to you.
Luis: But the fish, papa. The fish got away.
Martin: Yes, he did, my impatient son. Next time maybe don't fight it so much. Just reel it in a little bit at a time. You think you can do that?
Luis: Yes, papa.
Martin: All right, then, come on. We better get you home to mama, huh?
Luis: Daddy? Do we have to tell her what happened?
Martin: I won't tell if you won't.
Luis: You're late for work, aren't you?
Martin: Oh, that doesn't matter, son. Come on, but we better get you home.
Luis: I don't need you to walk me home, papa. I'm a big boy now.
Martin: Ah. Yeah. Just a moment ago you almost drowned, and now you're so grown up that you can see yourself home.
Luis: I can, papa. Honest, I can. You better go. You don't want to be late.
Martin: You sure that you can find your way home?
Luis: Of course I can, papa. I'm a big boy.
Martin: I know you're a big boy. All right, then. Now, listen to me -- I want you to make sure that you take the back way home, and you stay off the highway.
Luis: I know.
Martin: Ok, all right. All right, I know you know. My boy.
Luis: Papa, I'm scared.
Sheridan: I was just telling Luis how amazing it is to have just met you and feel like I've known you forever.
Katherine: The feeling is mutual, dear.
Sheridan: So, will you be going to Harmony when your husband goes?
Katherine: I'm -- I'm not sure.
Sheridan: Oh, I hope so. I would love to show you around, introduce you to my friends and family, especially Luis' mother.
Katherine: Yes, Pilar sounds like a very special woman.
Sheridan: Oh, she's great, and she will just love you. The whole family will. I mean, they're just so wonderful.
Katherine: Well, knowing Martin, they'd have to be.
Sheridan: Martin? Martin Fitzgerald? Do you know Luis' father?
Liz: You thank me now, T.C., but I'm afraid in the morning you're going to hate me when you realize what I've set in motion.
T.C.: No, Liz. Nonsense. That is nonsense. This would have come out sooner or later. It better come out in front of you, her sister, than anybody else. You know, Eve has no one to blame but herself.
Fox: My father was right. It's like a bomb got dropped on this house tonight. Can't blame Whitney for being upset, though -- all those lies and deceptions. I got a new half brother out there somewhere. So does Whitney. I wonder who he is.
Chad: It's ok, baby. Hey, it's going to be ok.
[Luis continues to dream.]
Luis: Papa? Don't leave me! Please come back!
Martin: Thank you. [Hanging up the phone.]
Martin: I do love you, Luis. I love you so much, son, that I'm going to Harmony to do what I should have done a long time ago. I'm going to get Alistair and get rid of him once and for all.
Sheridan: Tell me, please. Do you know Martin Fitzgerald? Do you know Luis' father? Where is he? Is he here?
NEXT ON PASSIONS:
Martin: It's me, Luis. I'm your father.
Katherine: Promise me you won't do it. Promise me you won't leave Luis.
Eve: This is the beginning of the end
