Ivy: Ethan, honey. It's ok, it's ok. We had security take Theresa away, and she won't be coming back to the hospital anytime soon.
Sam: Are you sure that's what he'd want?
Ivy: Of course it is. Sam, if he has any awareness of his surroundings at all, she is only making everything worse, if that's possible. Don't tell me you're defending Theresa, the woman who put our son in this state in the first place.
Sam: I just feel sorry for each and every one of us who love Ethan.
Ivy: But she is to blame for this. If he dies, his blood will be on her hands, and if he never recovers normal brain function, then she has committed an even more horrific atrocity.
Sam: Let's not talk about Theresa right now, ok? Let's concentrate on our son.
Ivy: I know, Sam, it's not just Theresa I blame. It's me, you know? If I just hadn't fallen for her lies all those years ago when I hired her as my personal assistant? Ugh, I practically handed Ethan to her on a silver platter. I entrusted her with my family and everything I had and --
Sam: Ivy, don't.
Ivy: No, Sam. Sam, our beautiful, beautiful son. This can't be happening to him. And what if his condition never improves? What if this is his life from here on in?
Sam: Listen, don't go there, ok, not yet. You know, believe it or not, he might be aware of things right now. You know, I've heard that hearing is the last thing to go. Instead of beating ourselves up over what we should and shouldn't have done, we should be using this precious time to talk to Ethan, encouraging him to fight with everything he's got so he can come back to us.
Kay: My dad's right, Ivy.
Fox: Ethan, it's Fox, your brother. Listen, man, you can pull through this, all right? You can do that, huh?
Kay: Hey, Ethan. It's me, your sister Kay. I love you.
Sam: I can't tell you what it means to me that you and Kay have put your differences aside. At least something good's come out of this terrible, terrible situation.
Ivy: Not in the way you think, Sam. Kay will not be with my son, not as long as I have breath left in my body.
Tabitha: Here you go, my little munchkin. Oh, look at Ivy and her sons. I see you vowing to destroy Fox and Kay's relationship. Oh, Kay, Kay. You'd think after all the time you've spent under our roof you'd be less gullible. On the other hand, she is Sam Bennett's daughter, and he's obviously a chump or he wouldn't have asked Ivy Crane to marry him. If he knew the lengths to which that woman went to destroy his marriage to Grace -- well, I can't be bothered with him now. But I do feel bad about Kay. You know, Maria's mommy -- she's not going to know what's hit her by the time Ivy's finished with her.
Sheridan: Come back to me. Please come back to me. I can't lose you. I need you. Come back to me. You've come back. I thought it was just my imagination. Oh, thank God, Luis, you came back to me. Thank God you came back to me. Chris.
Chris: You thought I was Luis?
Sheridan: He was just here. He spoke to me, he held me in his arms. He was just here.
Sheridan: I don't know. He must've left. Oh, God. He's left me all over again. What's wrong with me? Am I losing my mind? I can't take this anymore. I can't take the pain.
Chris: It's going to be all right. Everything's going to be all right. I wish I was Luis. If I could somehow magically turn myself into him, I would. But I can't. I would do anything to end your pain.
Sheridan: I know.
Chris: And maybe Beth will call back and -- and we can trace her whereabouts this time.
Sheridan: Beth said I would never see Marty again. She sounded so confident, so cocky, so sure of herself.
Chris: She's probably just bluffing, just trying to get you upset.
Sheridan: Well, it worked.
Chris: Sheridan, don't let it get to you like this. Luis may be gone, but Marty is still alive. He can still be found. The police and the F.B.I. haven't called off their search for him yet.
Sheridan: If Luis couldn't find Marty, then how can the police or the F.B.I.? Look, my father is the one pulling the strings here, Chris. He gets whatever he wants, and he wants to keep me away from my son.
Chris: I wish there was something I could do. Maybe I can pick up the search where Luis left off. I can leave for Morocco tomorrow.
Sheridan: No! I can't bear to lose you, too. And James needs you. There's nothing that anyone can do.
Chris: You don't know that for sure.
Sheridan: I do. That's what Luis told me. I know that you don't believe me when I say that he was here, but he was. At least his spirit was, and he told me that it was time to move on, it was time for me to forgive myself, but I'm just not sure that I can do that.
Chris: Just give yourself a chance, Sheridan.
Sheridan: I try. Every morning I wake up and I vow to be a good, brave soldier because I know that that's what Luis would want. But I'm just so tired. I'm so damn tired. I just don't think I can take this anymore. I -- I just want to curl up in a ball and die.
Chris: It's ok.
Tabitha: Oh, foolish mortals. Well, I suppose they can't help the way they're born. But Kay's a special case. She actually has powers! Although, she always seems so loathe to use them. Silly girl. She still believes that love conquers all. That's what my Timmy believed, and look where it got him. Not to mention Sheridan and Luis. They always thought that love would bail them out of anything, and time after time it only got worse. You'd think that Kay would learn from other people's mistakes, but, oh, she's too enamored of Fox now to cut her losses. She thinks she was hurt by Miguel. This breakup with Fox is going to be a lot more painful. Oh. Oh, I know. I'm getting soft in my old age. But even I'm appalled at the lengths to which Ivy will go to keep Fox and Kay apart. I can't imagine any mother so dedicated to ruining her child's chance of happiness. Ivy Crane will certainly go to hell when she dies, no matter how hard she tries to hide her deadly fangs.
Sam: I'm going to see if I can track down Eve.
Ivy: Do you think the second set of results are back yet?
Sam: There's only one way to find out.
Ivy: Please don't be long.
Sam: I won't.
Sam: But remember, you're not alone. Kay's here and your son.
Fox: I got to -- I got to make a phone call for work. I'll be right back.
Kay: Yeah, I just want to say that I'm really glad that we're not at each other's throats anymore.
Ivy: Yes, well --
Kay: It means a lot to me that you accept me as Fox's girlfriend. And I'm sure you always thought that he was going to get involved with some debutante from a good family. Well, you know what I mean -- a family with money.
Ivy: Don't be silly, Kay. I'm thrilled that you and Fox are together.
Kay: Well, thanks. You know, I didn't know that we would ever be able to get past what you did to break up my mom and dad.
Ivy: Well, I couldn't have done that without you, Kay. Let's just call it even on that score.
Kay: Yeah, well, I don't want to think about that anymore, either, ok -- and we don't need to. I just wanted to thank you again for sticking up for me. You know, I really didn't mess up that whole Singapore project file.
Ivy: Then how did the virus get loose?
Kay: Well, I've actually done a lot of thinking about that, and there's really only one way it could've happened.
Ivy: Which is?
Kay: Someone set me up. You know, someone who didn't want me to succeed at Crane sabotaged me. And I'll be honest. At first, Ivy, I thought it was you. But now I realize that I was wrong. I don't know who it is that's out to get me, but I'm not going to let them get away with it. Fox and my career are way too important to me.
Fancy: This is ridiculous. I don't know what I'm doing in a tub with you, let alone kissing you.
Noah: You're jealous as hell of me and Esme, that's what.
Noah: Ha. You couldn't stand the thought of me actually getting it on with your pal. So you did the only thing you could think of doing, which was pretty extreme, if I may say so myself. I mean, really, posing as a rich, stuttering English lord just so you could be alone with me?
Fancy: Esme bought it, didn't she?
Noah: Yeah, she's cute, but she's not that bright.
Fancy: Well, I could've told you that and saved you lots of trouble.
Noah: Uh-huh. You know, I wouldn't change a thing about today. I like the way it's turned out.
Noah: Why don't I help you get out of those wet things and you and I can get a little more comfortable.
Fancy: It's true, I am feeling rather soggy.
Noah: Hmm, allow me. Hey! What the heck was that for?
Fancy: For thinking you're God's gift, that's what. I'm glad you think so highly of yourself, Noah, but you're the only one in this tub who does.
Fancy: Take that!
Noah: Oh, my God. Oh! You think you're pretty slick, don't you?
Fancy: Oh, you should only know.
Noah: You don't know who you're messing with, kid.
Fancy: Oh, really?
Fancy: Oh. Are you ok?
Noah: Ugh! What are you trying to do, kill me?
Fancy: I should be so lucky.
Noah: God! Oh, I get it now. If you can't have me, then you're going to make sure nobody else can have me, either, huh?
Fancy: I don't believe your ego. Ugh!
Tabitha: Oh, dear. Sometimes I think Kay is as thick as molasses. She's bright in so many respects and she's a wonderful mother to Maria, but here she is spilling her guts to the one person in the world who wishes her harm. Of course, Ivy wants Sam to think she's a saint. But really, she'd rather see Fox dead than married to his daughter.
Ivy: You -- you really think someone is intentionally trying to make you look bad?
Kay: Mm-hmm, I'm positive. And like I said, first, you know, I thought that it was you, but now that we've talked --
Ivy: You know, Kay, I feel awful that you think I could stoop that low.
Kay: Well, it wouldn't be the first time, Ivy, that you manipulated people's lives to get what you wanted.
Ivy: I thought we weren't going to talk about your mother and David Hastings. But, you know, since you brought him up, I want to tell you that that was the old me, the extremely desperate me. I would never do anything like that now. Your father's love -- it's changed me.
Kay: Well, that's good to know.
Valerie: Don't expect me to believe that you want Chad to win top spot here at Crane Industries. I'm not that stupid. Now, if you want this little alliance to continue, you need to tell me what you really want.
Ivy: I want that bitch Kay Bennett out of my son's life for good. Oh, I can't imagine how awful you must feel if this is true.
Kay: Oh, it's true, it's true. You know, right after it happened, I thought that maybe it was some computer glitch that zapped the Singapore project files. But then the more I thought about it, the more I realized that somebody actually had to go onto my computer to mess everything up. And I know that I didn't do it, so it had to be someone with access to my computer or Fox's computer.
Ivy: I'm going to have to warn Valerie to be more discreet.
Kay: Did you find Dr. Russell?
Sam: No, I didn't find her, but I ran into a nurse and she told me she would let us know as soon as the lab results are back.
Fox: I'm going to get some fresh air. Do you want to --
Kay: Yeah, I'll go with you.
Sam: Hey, I want to thank you for taking care of my little girl.
Fox: Absolutely, yeah.
Sam: You know, everything that's happened with Ethan and all this horrible business with Jessica, I guess I'm just a little overprotective.
Fox: No, I understand. Not to worry, I love your daughter way too much to ever let anything happen to her.
Sam: That's good to hear. At least one of my children is safe and sound.
Chris: I can only imagine how you must feel.
Sheridan: I'm not the only one that's lost a lot in my life. I can only imagine what it cost you when Maureen left with James.
Chris: I was afraid I'd never see them again. In fact, I never saw Maureen alive. But I got James back. And now I've even got hope for the future. To my immense surprise, I've learned that even the worst things pass in time. And if you hang in there, you'll learn it, too.
Sheridan: I believe time helped you, but I'm just not sure that it can help me.
Chris: Trust me, it will if you just give it a chance. You can't stop living just because life looks bleak and hopeless. There's an expression that I've heard -- "don't give up before the miracle." Now, I've found one in my life, and so can you.
Sheridan: Maybe I've made too many mistakes to deserve one. Beth was right when she said that it was my fault that Luis was dead, because it was my hurt, it was my anger that sent him off in search of Marty, which is what eventually killed him. Now, even if I get Marty back, how can I explain that to him? How could he ever forgive me for killing his father?
Chris: Hey. Look at me. You didn't kill Luis. You're probably right about one thing -- it wasn't a random accident.
Sheridan: I'm sure that it wasn't.
Chris: Chances are one of your father's henchmen took Luis' life. Which means it had nothing to do with you or what you said to him before he left. You've got to get rid of this guilt that you're feeling.
Sheridan: But Beth said --
Chris: Forget what Beth said! You can only let her hurt you if you want to. You've got to be strong, you've got to stand up to her, and in the end, you'll win this fight.
Fox: I was in there, I was thinking about Ethan and how I spent my whole life jealous of him, you know? He was always, always better than me at everything, and just watching him, seeing him lying there staring off into space just -- thinking that he may never come out of it.
Kay: I know. When I found out he was my older brother, I freaked out at first. But the more I got to know him, I was so proud of him.
Fox: Yeah. You know what, if he comes out of this, if he can fight through this, I think I'm going to make an effort to just start over with him, you know, really just -- just be a good brother. It's probably asking too much, huh?
Kay: No, it isn't. I love you, Fox.
Fox: I love you, too.
Fancy: I've had enough of your overinflated ego. I'm out of here. Let me up!
Noah: All right, be my guest. I had nothing to do with that one.
Fancy: It's slippery in here.
Noah: Yeah, I know, it's called soap. Oh, come on, let me help you out.
Fancy: No, I don't need anything from you.
Noah: I just don't want to see you get hurt.
Fancy: Did you know more people die from falls in the bathtub than any other household accident?
Noah: Really? Did you know that you are just a font of useful information today?
Fancy: Oh, perfect, make fun of me when I'm in need. You'd probably be thrilled if I cracked my head open and died.
Noah: Actually, no, I hate the sight of blood.
Fancy: How gallant.
Noah: Ok, I'm not the one who's trying to kill the other one, all right? Look, I have an idea. Since I kind of like having you around, how about a truce?
Fancy: What kind of truce?
Noah: The kind where you stop trying to kill me and I'll do the same for you.
Fancy: I'm not trying to kill you. I'm trying to get away from you.
Noah: Oh, really? Liar! Is that why you conned Esme out of her hotel room by posing as some English lord with a bad stutter just to be alone with me?
Fancy: For your information, that is not why I called Esme away.
Noah: Ok. I'm waiting for an explanation.
Fancy: I don't need to explain a damn thing to you. It's none of your business.
Noah: All right, well --
Fancy: Ah! Damn it, Noah, stop it!
Noah: Now is it my business?
Fancy: All right, all right, I'll tell you the truth.
Noah: All right, you get five seconds and then you get the shower again. You ready?
Fancy: Ok, but don't get a swelled head over this.
Fancy: I like you.
Noah: I knew it. So then why are you acting like such a kindergarten brat for the last few days?
Fancy: You hurt my feelings.
Noah: How? Wait, when?
Fancy: I overheard you at the book cafe the other night. You were on the phone with some friend of yours.
Fancy: And I heard you say that there's no one interesting in Harmony, that all the women here are nothing but big fat zeros.
Noah: I mean, did you really think I was talking about you when I was on the phone with my old friend?
Fancy: What else would I think?
Noah: And that's why you turned on me all of a sudden. We were finally starting to make things happen together, and then all of a sudden you're giving me the cold freeze.
Fancy: Well, I have pride, too, Noah. You're not the only one. I thought you really cared about me.
Noah: I do. I mean, I did. Look, I don't even remember the conversation that you're talking about, but if I actually said the things that you're saying that I said, it was only because I was mouthing off to an old college friend. I would never call you a big fat zero. Come on, I would never call you that.
Fancy: Well, then you shouldn't have said it.
Noah: You're right. I shouldn't have. It was wrong. Just male macho bull. Come on, I would never hurt you. You have to know that. Big fat zero. Really, you are more precious than a pot of gold. Fancy, you're -- you're beautiful and you're funny and you're intelligent, and you're sweet when you're not trying to drown me.
Noah: Honest. How could you ever think that I felt any different? But it isn't all my fault, you know. If I was blowing off steam, it was only because I didn't know how to handle your rejection of me.
Fancy: I didn't reject you.
Noah: All that stuff with your grandfather? It was a slap in the face, like you didn't respect who I really was. Look, the way I see it, we both have some responsibility here, right? And if you can accept that, then we really got a shot. But if you can't, we're back to where we started.
Chris: There. Is that better?
Sheridan: Yes. Thank you for this.
Chris: What's that?
Sheridan: Picking me up when I'm down, coming along when I don't think I can put one foot in front of the other. It's almost as if you know when I need you most. You're a real lifesaver. I don't know how I will ever thank you.
Ivy: Sam, how long can those results take?
Sam: Ivy, I don't know. It could take hours.
Ivy: I don't know what I'm going to do if they confirm the early results. If --
Sam: Ivy, don't go there, ok, not yet. We just have to hold on to the belief that he'll come back to us just the way he was. We just have to.
Kay: It's getting chilly out here.
Fox: Yeah? Ok, well, you know what, you just wait right here and I'll get you a cup of coffee, ok?
Kay: Ok, thanks.
Fox: Be right back.
Kay: God, in a million years, I would've never thought that this could happen to Ethan. And Theresa? I mean, she loves him. I can't even imagine what she's going through knowing that it's her fault.
Woman: You know what they say. You always hurt the one you love.
Kay: I didn't know anybody was here.
Woman: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you.
Kay: Oh, no, no, that's ok. I usually don't talk to myself, just so you know.
Woman: Don't worry about it. I've been known to do it myself on occasion. I'd forgotten how beautiful the view is from here.
Kay: Yeah, yeah, it is.
Woman: You're Jessica Bennett, aren't you?
Kay: No. No, that's my sister. I'm Kay Bennett. Do I know you?
Woman: No. But I've been away for a long time. Too long I see now. Then your father is police chief Sam Bennett?
Kay: Well, he's not the police chief anymore. Alistair Crane had him fired a couple months ago. I'm sure you know who he is.
Woman: Yes. Yes, I do.
Kay: Alistair Crane hates my dad -- well, my whole family, really -- so my dad wasn't really the least bit surprised when he got fired.
Kay: Excuse me?
Woman: Never mind. Forgive me.
Kay: Hey, thank you.
Fox: A cup of coffee for you, extra hot. Should be all set there.
Woman: Fox Crane.
Fox: Yeah, that's right. I'm sorry, do we know each other?
Woman: No. But I remember your family.
Ivy: I am so sorry I denied you your legacy for so long, Ethan. I just thought I was doing the right thing telling everyone you were a Crane, but now I know. I know the true gift would've been telling you that you were Sam Bennett's son.
Sam: Ivy, don't.
Ivy: You're so much like him, Ethan. You're strong and you're good and you're noble. You're such a good man. Please come back to us, Ethan, so that I can make up for the time I cost you with your father. Please come back.
Sam: He will, Ivy. He will.
Tabitha: I wouldn't be too certain of that if I were you, Sam Bennett. You haven't exactly got the best track record in the world for going with your gut instinct, have you? I suppose you can't blame them for wanting a full recovery for their son. Lucifer knows I'd want the same for you, Endora. But really, Eve is just trying to let them down gently, to soften the blow of the bad news, because that Theresa really walloped her true love with that pill-laced guacamole dip. Her prince charming may never wake up.
Chris: I'm glad I could be of service.
Sheridan: Don't be so modest. It's true. You always seem to be here when I need you most.
Chris: Well, if you want to show me your appreciation, you can show me that beautiful smile of yours.
Sheridan: I'm sorry, but I don't feel like smiling. I'm always going to miss Luis and Marty.
Chris: Look, life goes on. Otherwise, we'd let the bad things win. Stick with me, it'll get better.
Sheridan: You know something? When you put it that way, I almost believe you.
Noah: How did you expect me to react?
Fancy: You didn't have to turn against me just because I asked you to consider a job at Crane.
Noah: Yeah, but you didn't just ask, Fancy, all right, you made me feel lousy -- first, for even thinking I'd stoop to that level to actually say yes, and then when I turned it down flat, it was as if you didn't know who I really was. And --
Fancy: I never meant to --
Noah: Yeah, I --
Fancy: Too late.
Noah: Maybe, but -- but you did.
Fancy: I'm sorry. I was so confused. I thought I was doing such a good thing by going to my grandfather to talk to him about you.
Noah: Yeah, I'm sure you thought that.
Fancy: It just felt like some way I could help out, you know? And when you threw it in my face, when you got mad at me for doing something nice, I went ballistic. I said some things I wish I hadn't.
Noah: Ok, so did I. As long as you realize now what an evil creature your grandfather is. I mean, I realize that he is family, but the man is despicable.
Fancy: Stop it. I understand the way you feel, but please don't start in on him.
Noah: Here we go. It's the elephant in the living room, Fancy. I mean, we're never going to be able to get anywhere if we, you know, can't clear the air about this guy.
Fancy: Ok. Just not now. If I don't want him to mess up our relationship and you don't want him to, then we just won't let him.
Noah: All right. Where do we go from here?
Fancy: I don't know where we go from here. Right now, I don't care. All that matters is now, this moment.
Noah: I like where I'm sitting right now, this moment. I like it very much.
Chris: You know, I understand how you feel better than you think I do.
Sheridan: I believe you.
Chris: And the last thing I want to do is pressure you, push you into something too quickly or too soon.
Sheridan: What are you saying?
Chris: I'm saying I want to just lighten your load. I want to make you feel happy and peaceful inside again. And, if God willing, I want to do more. I want to make you happy someday.
Sheridan: You already have, Chris.
Sam: You know, in the meantime, while we're waiting for the news of Ethan, you and I have so much to be grateful for.
Ivy: We do?
Sam: Kay and Fox. I mean, haven't you seen how close they've gotten? It gives me so much joy to see how happy they are. Finally, Kay has finally met a man who truly loves her, and I couldn't be more proud of the man she's picked, either. You know what, who knows, they might even get married. Wouldn't that be something?
Ivy: Yeah. That would be something.
Tabitha: Despite your best efforts, my little munchkin, Fox and Kay don't stand a chance. If my spell doesn't tear their love to smithereens, then Mother Ivy surely will. Oh, Endora. You naughty girl. Listen, I know you've worked hard to help Fox and Kay, but one doesn't always get what one wants in this world -- not even if you're witches.
Tabitha: Now what? Amazing. Just when you think you've seen it all, another twist appears on the horizon. Look who's back in town, Endora! Oh, just wait until everyone hears about this.
Fox: Oh, you're cold. Uh, well, here, have my coffee.
Woman: Oh, I couldn't.
Fox: No, no, no, it's fine, really. I can go get another one. It's not a problem, ok? Be right back.
Woman: He's a real gentleman.
Kay: Yeah. Yeah, he is.
Woman: You love him, don't you?
Kay: Is it that obvious?
Woman: To me, anyway. Well, am I right? Do you love him?
Kay: Yes. Yes, I do.
Woman: Then why don't you look happier about it?
Kay: Well, it's not Fox. There's just so many other things going on right now. My brother -- well, actually my half brother -- is in I.C.U. in a coma right now. They're saying that he might be permanently brain-damaged.
Woman: I'm so sorry.
Kay: Yeah, I mean, and there's just these other complications with me and Fox. If you know the Cranes and the Bennett's, you know that they're just from completely opposite sides of the tracks, just two totally different worlds.
Woman: I see.
Kay: I'm sorry. I don't know why I'm telling you this. I don't even know you.
Woman: They say sometimes it's easier to confide in strangers. You didn't ask me for advice, but I'll give you one tidbit anyway. If you love Fox, don't give up on your love, no matter what.
Kay: You sound like you're talking from personal experience.
Woman: I am. I was young and foolish once myself, and I gave up on the love I should've fought for. It was the biggest mistake I ever made. It didn't just ruin my life. It almost killed everyone I loved.
Kay: I feel like I'm supposed to know who you are. Who are you?
On the Next Passions:
Woman: I've learned what it takes to teach you a lesson and I will, starting tonight.
Alistair: Oh, my God.
Paloma: What if the place is raided before we hand over the drugs and we get arrested?
Liz: I want you.
