Chris: James, put on Sheridan's electric blanket, please. My coat is soaked. Let's wrap up in this.
Sheridan: Thank you.
Chris: Is that better?
Chris: Hey, why don't you go get your pj's and come back here, so I can help you get ready for bed? I want to keep an eye on Sheridan, ok?
James: I can do it!
Sheridan: Oh, go after him. It's ok. I'll be fine.
Chris: No, I'll deal with him later, after I run you a hot bath. You need to get out of these wet clothes right away.
Sheridan: Chris, can you help me? My fingers are so cold, I can't undo my buttons.
Chris: I'll -- I'll close my eyes so I don't see anything I'm not supposed to.
Mrs. Wallace: Oh, boy, oh, boy. Boy, to think these poor souls used to be network executives. Oy. Where is Norma? Tonight is the night we get to break out of this joint, and the old gal is late!
Mrs. Wallace: Oh, boy, I can only imagine what kind of a freak show this pageant is going to be. Norma, is that you?
Norma: Don't I look special?
Mrs. Wallace: You're going in that outfit to -- to kill Tabitha? Oh.
Kay: Maria's asleep. Dr. Spock left you this bill for a house call.
Tabitha: Huh. Damned if I'll pay that. Hmm, damned if I don't. Oh, I am one funny witch, huh?
Kay: Hilarious. Do you see me laughing?
Tabitha: Don't tell me you are still upset because of that spell I cast to bring Chris and Sheridan together.
Kay: You're darn right I am. If you can make it so they can fall in love, why can't you do that for Fox and me?
Fox: What happened to us, Kay? Why do you never want to see me again?
Ivy: That's good. That's really good. And I am still tingling.
Sam: Me, too. You were incredible.
Ivy: Well, you were pretty amazing. You were beyond amazing.
Sam: It's like old times, huh? The beach.
Ivy: And on your boat.
Sam: At the park.
Ivy: Oh, God, we're like college kids. And we can't even get to the bedroom.
Fancy: Try not to look so jumpy. Those cops will think we're hiding something.
Noah: We are hiding something, Fancy, all right? Our comatose half brother's in the bedroom, and Theresa's in the closet.
Dan: I know I heard something coming from that closet before. I mean, that Noah guy said it could have been a rat. Yeah, it sounded bigger than that. I say we check it out.
Officer: And I say we leave now before Ms. Crane calls her grandfather, and we both end up working security at the mall.
Theresa: Ok. All right, those cops know that I kidnapped Ethan. If they find me, they're going to find Ethan, and then Gwen's going to get Ethan back. She's going to take Ethan off life-support. Come on, Noah, come on, Fancy, don't let them find me here, please.
Theresa's voice: Oh, God, I'm about to be busted. And without me to protect Ethan, Gwen's going to let him die.
James: Are you ok?
Sheridan: I'm starting to be.
Chris: Your bath must be ready by now. Go soak in it while it's still hot. I'll take James downstairs and make us something hot to drink.
Sheridan: I'll be waiting.
Chris: Come on, son.
Sheridan: Maybe I've waited long enough.
Ivy: Oh, you always were the best kisser.
Sam: You've always had the sweetest lips. And neck.
Sam: And --
Ivy: Oh, Sam?
Sam: You love it and you know it.
Ivy: I do. And I love you. And I can't wait to be your wife.
Sam: I wish we could tie the knot right now.
Sam: But --
Ivy: Ethan's missing.
Sam: And Jessica's lost to Spike.
Ivy: I know, I just wish all of our children were well and happy.
Sam: Well, Fancy and Noah are happy, and Fox and Kay seem to be doing well.
Fox: Yeah. Actually, you're not going to believe this, but Kay and I aren't doing so hot. She said she never wants to see me again.
Kay: Answer me, witch. If you can hocus-pocus Sheridan and Chris into getting closer, why can't you conjure a spell to get Fox and me back together?
Tabitha: You know why, Kay. As you said earlier, the dark side can't conjure love per se. That's why I couldn't win you Miguel, and why your attempts to land him using evil failed miserably.
Kay: Forget Miguel! I want Fox back.
Tabitha: Yes. And I'd like to hook up with Hercules again, but it ain't going to happen. Face it, dear. This spell on Fox to make him successful is obviously one of the dark side's top performers. Any spell I cast to lessen its effect will have little or no impact.
Kay: What if you and Endora joined forces to cast a spell?
Tabitha: What? And risk another earthquake or tsunami? No, thank you very much. Besides, my supernatural power bill was astronomical that month.
Kay: Well, what am I supposed to do?
Tabitha: You're supposed to accept the consequences of your actions, Kay, and move on. You and Fox are finished.
Fancy: I don't recall giving you permission to search my family's cabin.
Dan: Well, if it's like you say and you're not hiding anything, what difference does it make?
Fancy: Shut that door now, or I'll have Crane Legal on you and your partner so fast your heads will spin.
Officer: Damn it, Dan, shut the door.
Dan: Look, I know I heard something in there, and it wasn't a rat.
Officer: I don't care. I'm not taking any chances. I want my pension. Now, shut that door! It's an order. I'm sorry, Ms. Crane. My partner's very thorough. But if you want us to leave, we will leave.
Fancy: I do.
Noah: Be careful out there, guys.
Fancy: And don't tell anyone we're here. Noah and I want to be alone. That was close.
Noah: A little too close.
Theresa: I'll say.
Noah: Theresa --
Theresa: How is Ethan?
Fancy: Still the same.
Noah: You know, after reading us the riot act for kidnapping Ethan, why didn't you just tell those cops that he was here, along with Theresa?
Sam: Wait a second. Kay said she never wants to see you again?
Fox: Yeah. Why, I have no idea, but she meant it.
Sam: Well, what happened?
Fox: Well, I guess it all started when we were --
Ivy: Fox, why don't -- why don't you just get some coffee and collect your thoughts?
Sam: Poor guy. I really thought they made a good couple.
Sam: Look, maybe you can help him see where Kay might be coming from. If Fox knew where her head is, well, then maybe he can work to fix things between them.
Ivy: I'd be happy to give Fox my insight into Kay.
Sam: Good. I'll give you guys some privacy.
Ivy's voice: Valerie said Fox was angry at Kay for mucking up a deal. So why would Kay break up with him? Well, I'm sure I'll find out. I just have to be careful not to look like I'm against Fox getting back together with Kay.
Kay: I refuse to give up on Fox.
Tabitha: You said that about Miguel. And here we are, six years later, and no Miguel. Do us all a favor, Kay. Just give up on Fox now.
Kay: No! I want to be with him. And you have to help me get him back.
Tabitha: I don't have to do anything of the sort. I warned you that the spell I cast on Fox was powerful. And I told you that it could mean you would lose him. But you said you loved him enough to let him go. So he's gone. You got your wish. Be happy.
Kay: I made a mistake. Won't you at least just try to help me make things right?
Tabitha: I think your request is more suited to your Fairy Godmother.
Kay: I don't have a Fairy Godmother.
Tabitha: Oh, yes. That's my fault, too, I suppose. Sorry, I forgot.
Kay: Wait. I had a Fairy Godmother?
Tabitha: Well, I caught her once trying to turn Timmy against me, so Sam Bennett's bug zapper has never glowed as brightly since.
Kay: You killed my Fairy Godmother?
Tabitha: Well, I was protecting my Timmy.
Kay: This is all the more reason why you have to help me.
Tabitha: It is not.
Kay: Yes! Please? Can't you at least try?
Man: Hey, you two, down in front.
Norma: Kill Tabitha in this? The way blood splatters? No, dear, I'm wearing work clothes for that.
Mrs. Wallace: Why don't you go change already? Because the time for us to break out of here is right now!
Norma: We'll leave as soon as I've done my number.
Mrs. Wallace: You're in the talent show?
Norma: I sing.
Mrs. Wallace: You do?
Norma: Oh. Daddy says I sing like a bird.
Mrs. Wallace: Oh. Giant loon.
Norma: What was that, dear?
Mrs. Wallace: We have a small window of opportunity to break out of here, and that is while the guard is busy with the pageant. Oh -- oh -- which is now! So go on, go on, put on your escaping clothes, and we can be on our way, nobody will know that we're missing for hours!
Norma: But I want to sing my song for Daddy.
Mrs. Wallace: Don't you want to see Tabitha more?
Norma: Norma is home for the holidays!
Norma: Norma's back, and ready to hack!
Norma: Aren't you going to ax me in? Yes, I want to see Tabitha. I want to see her die!
Theresa: Noah's right. I mean, you were all set to hike down to the nearest phone to tell Gwen and the police that we were here.
Noah: And then those cops showed up and you covered for us. Why? Did you finally decide that Theresa and I were right to kidnap Ethan and keep him alive?
Fancy: What you and Theresa did -- I still think it was wrong. But when I was alone with Ethan before, I started to remember things, moments we'd shared growing up that I'd all but forgotten -- playing hide-and-seek in the garden maze and doing stunts on the trampoline, putting on puppet shows. Other memories weren't quite so Norman Rockwell. There's one Christmas in particular that was especially horrible. I was about 10, and for whatever reason, my mother and father had forgotten to send for me at boarding school. Good thing I knew what it was to be a Crane even then. And so I called a number my grandfather had given me for emergencies, and the next thing I knew, the limo was pulling up to the mansion. And I thought I'd surprise everyone opening their presents in the living room. But no one was there. Hi, I'm home!
Fancy's voice: So I called the kitchen to see if everyone was having Christmas dinner.
Young Fancy: Hello? Where is everybody?
Fancy's voice: But the maid said the family had left. I had come home only to be alone. And there wasn't even a gift under the tree for me. And not getting a single present wasn't the greatest, but to be forgotten -- that was the worst. And if Ethan hadn't shown up when he did, I think I would have curled up and died. But Ethan did show up. And he made it the best Christmas ever.
[ Heartbeat ].
Fox: So Kay fixed it so Valerie couldn't get a hold of me when the Singapore project was about ready to go bust, right? So I exploded. I go back to Crane Industries with Valerie, we salvage the deal.
Ivy: Fox, that's wonderful. That's great. Oh, you are so lucky to have Valerie working with you.
Fox: Yeah. And then Kay decides that Valerie's concocted this whole mess just to get me away from her, right? So now she's at Crane Industries. She's in Valerie's face. She's accusing her of all sorts of crazy things, right? Oh, get this. Then she says she saw me kissing Valerie.
Ivy: Did she?
Fox: No. Never happened. I hugged Valerie after we saved the Singapore deal, that's all.
Ivy: Well, Fox, I believe you, of course. I'm just sorry Kay doesn't.
Fox: Yeah. Here's where it starts to get really weird, though, right? So she goes from being mad at me to blaming herself for -- for losing it, right? And she says we're finished, we're not going to see each other anymore. She blows out of the office, and that's the last time we spoke.
Ivy: Hmm. Well, I know this doesn't mean very much to you right now, because you're upset about Kay, but I'm very proud of you and Valerie for saving the Singapore project. You know, the teamwork you two have -- it's nothing less than remarkable.
Fox: Yeah. Yeah, we work well together. But that's beside the point. Who cares, right? If I don't have Kay, I've got nothing.
Ivy's voice: And I've got my work cut out for me.
Kay: Please, Tabitha, help me get Fox back.
Tabitha: I told you, to try and counteract the spell that Fox is already under just won't work.
Kay: How do you know if you won't try?
Tabitha: Because I'm a witch!
Kay: That's right, you are. So either cast a spell to help me get him back or I will tell everyone in town your little secret. So? What's it going to be? Are you going to help me? Or do the good people of Harmony get into the holiday spirit this year by burning you instead of a Yule log?
Tabitha: A -- oh.
Mrs. Wallace: We're almost free.
Norma: Tabby, here we come.
M.C.: Back by popular demand after her show-stopping number several years ago, the one and only Norma!
Norma: That's me!
Mrs. Wallace: Hurry before the spotlight is on us. Come on.
M.C.: Norma will reprise her signature song, "I've Written a Letter to Daddy," based on the movie, "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" Starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford!
Norma: My public awaits.
Mrs. Wallace: So does Tabitha's neck. Chop, chop.
Norma: But Daddy -- he loves it when I sing this song.
Mrs. Wallace: Wait a minute. You mean your real daddy is here tonight?
Norma: Daddy's been here all along.
Mrs. Wallace: Oh. Too bad we're leaving. I've been known to date older men, you know. Too bad you didn't introduce us.
Norma: Well, Daddy's right here.
Mrs. Wallace: Where?
Mrs. Wallace: Hmm?
Norma: [As Daddy] Evening, Edna. Norma's told me so much about you.
Mrs. Wallace: Ah!
Tabitha: Why must you always threaten me, Kay? The last time you did so was the night you forced me to cast that spell on Fox to make him successful. Now you claim that spell is ruining your life.
Kay: It is.
Tabitha: Well, you got what you wanted, didn't you? And so did the boys in the basement. They always prefer mortals to focus on anything but love. That's why they tricked you into seeing Fox and Valerie kissing in the magic bowl. And if you hadn't have gone over there to confront Valerie and realize your gaffe, then you and Fox might still be together.
Kay: If you can't undo the spell, undo me going to Fox's office and saying what I did.
Tabitha: Oh, if I could turn back time, I'd have invested in Microsoft when Bill Gates was a poor geek with a bad haircut.
Kay: Ugh -- I hate arguing with you, Tabitha. You've been good to Maria and me.
Tabitha: Yes, I have.
Kay: You do realize that if Fox and I don't get back together, Maria and I are going to be living here from now on.
Tabitha: Say what?
Kay: Yeah, when Maria grows up and she gets older and she gets married, she'll have a husband. He'll probably live here, too -- all of their kids. We'll be one big, happy family.
Tabitha: Well, on second thought, maybe I could soften that success spell enough to allow you a chance to woo Fox again.
Kay: Great. Then I won't have to tell everybody you're a witch.
Tabitha: Oh, you rude girl.
Kay: Being nice doesn't work with you, Tabs.
Kay: Look, I'm going to go next door. I'm going to see if there's any news on Ethan or Jessica. But when I get back here, things better be back on track with me and Fox.
Tabitha: Fine, fine. I'll cast a love spell. But I know it won't work. Oh, if only Kay would just accept the fact that she and Fox are history.
Ivy: Fox, how can you say you have nothing without Kay? Your job at Crane Industries -- it's very important. At the rate you're going, Alistair's going to let you take over the company any day now.
Fox: Mm-hmm. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Who cares, right? Who cares? If I don't have Maria and Kay to go home to, then it doesn't mean anything.
Ivy: Oh, please, don't say that.
Fox: Well, you know what I'm talking about, right? I mean, you're engaged to be Mrs. Sam Bennett.
Ivy: Fox, I'm in a different place in my life than you are.
Fox: Yeah, you are. That's exactly what I'm talking about. You're with the person you want to be with more than anything. I'm with no one.
Ivy: Honey, look, I'm sorry. It just sounds like maybe Kay has some issues.
Fox: Yeah. You know? Ooh -- here's an idea. You talk to her.
Fox: Yeah. Yeah, you talk to her. You know, you sit her down, right, and you just explain to her that she's as important to me as Sam is to you.
Fancy: I couldn't believe it. There I was, alone on Christmas, forgotten by both my parents, abandoned by everyone else. I remember feeling so worthless, unimportant, and unloved -- until I heard the door open, and I ran to see who it was. It was Ethan, laden with Christmas presents for me. He put them aside to hug me, and I remember holding on to him for dear life. I knew then I wasn't worthless and unimportant and unloved. Because Ethan loved me, and that was all that mattered. His hug was the best Christmas present ever. And he helped save my life that day. It's only fair I help save his life now.
Chris: All nice and warm?
Sheridan: Warmer, but not quite toasty. Will the blanket get any warmer?
Chris: It's on high.
Sheridan: Hmm. Will you get in bed with me, then? Help warm me up?
Chris: If you want me to.
Sheridan: I do.
Sheridan: Oh, I just got goose bumps again.
Chris: Mm-hmm, so you did. Let me rub some heat into your arms.
Sheridan: Oh, I'd like that. Thank you. That's much better.
Sheridan: Tonight has been a pretty unbelievable night.
Chris: It's been pretty awful for you.
Sheridan: It was, but not anymore. Tonight has turned out to be wonderful. Just wonderful.
Tabitha: I'm incognito because I don't want the boys in the basement to get their britches in a twist because I'm casting a good spell to help Kay get Fox back. Huh. Let's see, now. Sugar, honey, chocolate, stardust -- ooh, sweet. Kay and her threats. We witches don't get the respect we deserve anymore.
Tabitha: Right. Even those two loonies have threatened me -- Norma and Edna.
Mrs. Wallace: Ah!
Norma: Edna -- Edna, what's the matter?
Mrs. Wallace: Ah. Your father -- he -- he -- he --
Norma: He's glad to meet you, too. Look at him smiling.
Guard: Why are you screaming? Didn't make it to be changed in time?
Mrs. Wallace: No, would you --
Guard: Ah. I see you met Norma's father.
Mrs. Wallace: You mean, you -- you knew about "Daddy"?
Guard: Everybody knows Daddy. He and Norma are inseparable.
Mrs. Wallace: Oh, Sigmund, where are ya?
Guard: Norma, your public awaits. Shouldn't you take center stage?
Norma: Oh -- oh, did you hear that, Daddy? My public awaits. I have to sing for Daddy.
Mrs. Wallace: What about killing Tabitha?
Norma: She can wait. My public can't. The show must go on!
Mrs. Wallace: Ugh. "American Idol," you don't know what you're missing.
Norma: Oh, thank you.
Norma: I've written a letter to Daddy, the sender is your little girl, dear Daddy, I miss you so awfully, I wish you could see all my curls
Fancy: I was about to leave Ethan to find a way to contact Gwen, when the snow on the windowsill reminded me of that Christmas so long ago and how Ethan was there for me. It was then I'd realized that I'd never done anything to repay him. So instead of calling Gwen to have Ethan taken back to Harmony to be taken off life-support, I decided that maybe the best way to repay him for helping me get through that Christmas was to help him get through this Christmas. And to protect him, I had to protect you. Maybe what I'm doing is wrong. I don't know. All I know is I am at peace with my decision not to involve the police.
Officer: Damn it, Dan, let's go. It's cold out here.
Dan: I still think Ms. Crane and that Noah guy are hiding something.
Officer: Yeah, they're here on the sly together.
Dan: No. I can't shake the feeling it's more than that.
Officer: You know, you watch too many of those psychic detectives on Court TV. Come on.
Dan: Yeah. Hey, Geoff, look at this. That tire is slashed.
Geoff: Sure looks that way.
Dan: Look, I told you there was something going on around here. Now do you believe me?
Geoff: I'd be a fool not to.
Dan: So what are we waiting for? Let's go find out what Fancy Crane and Noah Bennett are hiding, huh?
[ Heartbeat ]
Chris: I don't know what I would have done if you had drowned tonight.
Sheridan: But I didn't drown. You saved me. And for the first time in I don't even know how long, I feel alive again, like I've turned a corner. I -- I feel reborn, I -- happy, optimistic. Most of all, hopeful.
Sheridan: That I could have a life after Luis' death. Hopeful that I could share that life with someone special. Someone very close to me.
Fox: So, Mom, what do you say, huh? Are you going to do this for me? Are you going to talk to Kay? Try to convince her that I want to be with her and not -- not Valerie?
Ivy: Fox, look, it's not that I'm not willing to talk to Kay. Of course I am. It's just I don't think my getting involved is going to help matters.
Fox: Of course it'll help. Are you kidding? Look, you're going to be her stepmom, all right? Here's an idea. Wait a second. What if you and Sam both get together and you both talk to her, huh?
Ivy: Fox --
Fox: That's a good idea.
Ivy: Fox, that is going to seem like Sam and I are ganging up on her. No, this turnaround of Kay's -- it just seemed to come out of the blue. I don't know -- for whatever reason, I think she just doesn't want to see you anymore.
Fox: Well, yeah, that's what I've been trying to tell -- look, it just doesn't make any sense.
Ivy: Well, maybe it has to do with something else, Fox. Maybe it has to do with Ethan or Jessica. Something else. Honey, look, I hate to say this, I really do, but maybe it's time you just forgot Kay and moved on.
Sam: Kay, honey, what's wrong?
Kay: Everything, Dad. Everything's just awful.
Norma: Here's hoping this note makes it to you without you life's empty and dull I'll come find you soon as I'm able to me, you're much more than a skull oh. Oh.
Norma: Oh. Edna, what -- what am I going to sing for an encore?
Mrs. Wallace: Have you seen the time?
Norma: I don't know that song. Can you hum a few bars?
Mrs. Wallace: Oh, would you just forget about performing? We should be halfway to Tabitha's by now.
Norma: Tabitha --
Mrs. Wallace: Mm-hmm.
Norma: [As Daddy] Kill her, buttercup.
Mrs. Wallace: Yeah.
Norma: Kill the witch.
[Normal voice] Oh, yes, Daddy. She must get the ax. My ax.
Mrs. Wallace: Yes, yes, yes, and the sooner we get going, the sooner you'll be able to give it to her.
Norma: What are you waiting for? Let's go.
Mrs. Wallace: Ugh!
Guard: Uh-uh-uh -- where do you two think you're going?
Tabitha: Well, here goes nothing. "Roses are red, violets are blue, love that was severed, make good as new."
Tabitha: Ooh. This spell could work. Oh, but if the boys below get wind of this, they could be blow me away.
Dan: What? Why are we stopping? That slashed tire proves that Ms. Crane and Noah are hiding something.
Geoff: Even if it does, Ms. Crane asked us to leave, so we're leaving.
Dan: But there is something --
Geoff: That's an order!
Dan: Ok, all right.
Dan: Geoff -- Geoff, look at this. These are tire tracks, big ones. You know, like from a truck or something. And they're not that old.
Geoff: Look, I don't care if they're alien footprints. Look, we're going to leave before Ms. Crane has both of our jobs.
Dan: Fine, you can go. I'm staying until I find out what's really going on around here.
Theresa: So now you understand why Noah helped me rescue Ethan from the hospital? If we hadn't acted when we did, he would be dead right now. He's not dead, Fancy. He's alive, and that means that there is still hope for him to recover someday. I just -- I want to say thank you. From the bottom of my heart, Fancy, thank you for protecting me, and Noah. And especially for protecting Ethan. Thank you.
Fancy: Don't touch me, Theresa. You are still the reason Ethan is in a coma. And don't think I'll ever forget that.
Fancy: Just because I think Ethan deserves a second chance doesn't mean I think you do.
On the Next Passions:
Fox: Are you trying to get me to break up with Kay?
Mrs. Wallace: Back! Back!
