Chad: This is so right. You belong here.
Whitney: No, I shouldn't be here.
Chad: Yes, you should. You belong here with Miles and me. I love you so much, and Miles needs his mother.
Whitney: But it's wrong, Chad.
Chad: I don't care what's right or wrong. This is where you should be.
Sheridan: I can't believe how fast James fell asleep. He sure is excited with all his presents.
Chris: He really wore himself out, but I've never seen him this happy.
Sheridan: Hmm. He had a wonderful Christmas, didn't he?
Chris: The best.
Sheridan: I'm so glad.
Chris: Hey. You're the reason that James is so happy, Sheridan.
Sheridan: Only because the two of you have made me so happy.
Chris: You've brought incredible joy into our lives.
Sheridan: I never thought I could be this happy again.
Chris: Are you truly happy? Because it's the only thing I want in this world right now.
Sheridan: Yes, I'm truly happy.
Chris: I can't hide my feelings for you. I want you. I want to make love to you. Are you ready to be with me?
Gwen: Honey, how are you feeling? Can I get you anything else?
Ethan: Honey, I'm fine. Really, I'm fine.
Gwen: This is just the biggest miracle in the world to have you here. You're alive, you're awake. I am pinching myself.
Gwen: Do you know how much I love you?
Ethan: I love you, too. I'm just frustrated, Gwen. I have no memory whatsoever as to what happened to me. None. And when everyone told me how long I was in this coma, I was really surprised.
Gwen: Well, it was a nightmare. But it's over, and thank God you're here, you're ok.
Ethan: Gwen, what happened to me? Why did I fall into this coma?
Gwen: Well, honey, it was Theresa. She is the reason that this happened to you.
Little Ethan: Mommy!
Theresa: Hey, sweetie! Wow! I am surprised you are up this late, hmm?
Fox: Well, Paloma let us in and then she went to bed. Little Ethan wanted to stay up and say good night to you, so --
Kay: Yeah, we let him open a couple of his gifts. I hope that's ok.
Theresa: Oh, absolutely. It's Christmas, right?
Little Ethan: Look what I got!
Theresa: All right.
Fox: He's excited.
Pilar: Hey, Maria! Come to Grandma!
Kay: Oh, your Grandma!
Pilar: Come to Grandma! Hi, pretty girl! Yes! Hello! Let's sit over here.
Kay: Maria has a present for you.
Pilar: Oh, thank you! Hey, did you see what Grandma got you, huh? Did you?
Kay: We wanted to wait for you.
Pilar: Oh, you did? Ok, let's go see what we find under the tree. Come on! Let's go! Come on, let's go see what's there!
Fox: Have fun. Boy. Talk about a Christmas no one's ever going to forget, huh, Ethan showing up at the church like that?
Kay: I know I'll never forget it.
Fox: Me neither, me neither. It's not every day you get to witness a true miracle, right?
Theresa: It was definitely a miracle.
Little Ethan: Are we going to see Ethan soon?
Theresa: Yes, yes, we are, very, very soon.
Little Ethan: Ok.
Pilar: Here, she's tired. There you go.
Kay: Come here. Come on, let's go.
Pilar: Theresa? Que esta haciendo? What are you telling the child? You swore to God that if Ethan recovered you would leave him alone. Now, Ethan is not coming to see him and he's definitely not coming to see you. You must never see Ethan again.
Judge Reilly: I can't believe that woman is back. Oh, I shudder to think what Alistair will do when he finds out.
Alistair: Reilly. What the hell is going on around here?
Judge Reilly: Alistair, you -- you heard so soon.
Alistair: Of course I heard. I know everything that goes on in this town. You know that. I just hope you have a very good excuse about releasing Noah Bennett in direct defiance of my explicit orders.
Judge Reilly: She was here. She made me do it. She threatened me.
Alistair: Who threatened you?
Judge Reilly: You know exactly who I'm talking about! We both know what was done to her. So you'd better be on guard because she is out to destroy you, Alistair.
[ Sizzle of electricity ] Ow! Ow!
Alistair: You're wrong. She couldn't have come back.
Judge Reilly: I'm not imagining things, Alistair. She's back. She was here. I'll never forget that face, those eyes. It was just unnerving to see her again. I couldn't, I just couldn't believe it. But damn it, she was here. I mean, why else do you think I would've defied your orders and signed Noah Bennett's release papers?
Alistair: That's why I'm here, to find out why. I wanted that Bennett kid buried in that jail to keep him away from seeing my granddaughter.
Judge Reilly: I know what you wanted and I was perfectly prepared to do your bidding.
Alistair: Oh, but you got scared off by some kind of a ghost, is that what you're telling me?
Judge Reilly: No, no, what I'm telling you is that it was no ghost. She was here. She was in my office. She threatened me! She's in Harmony and she's mad as hell! You'd better watch your back. Oh, my God. You know, don't you? She's back and you know it.
Alistair: That's ridiculous.
Judge Reilly: You can't pretend with me, Alistair. You've had some kind of encounter with her. She's back and you know about it, don't you?
Alistair: Oh, my God. Oh, my God!
Chad: You know this is where you should be. We're a family -- me, you, and Miles. I don't care what the world says. This is how it should be.
Whitney: No. No, Chad. God, stop it.
Chad: You love me. I know you do.
Whitney: I can't love you. Chad, you are my half brother. I can't believe I almost let you pull me into making love to you again.
Chad: You want me. I know you do.
Whitney: It doesn't matter what I want. It doesn't matter. Don't you understand? We could never be together. I can never make love to you ever again.
Chad: I'm not letting you go. Ok, look, how could something this wonderful be bad? How could the way we feel about each other be wrong? How could we have made this beautiful baby if it's wrong?
Whitney: I don't know. I don't know, but I know it is wrong. It's a sin against God, Chad. Look, I can never be alone with you, not ever again.
Pilar: Theresa, you know very well that you cannot turn your back on your word to God. It's sacred.
Theresa: Mama, I know I promised God that I would stop trying to come between Ethan and Gwen, but does that mean that I can never see him again?
Pilar: Theresa, you know what will happen if you do see Ethan. No, just stop. Stop trying to get out of your promise to God. You must never see Ethan again.
Theresa: I don't think I can do that.
Pilar: Ay, dios mio, Theresa. I'm warning you, if you go back to stalking Ethan, to trying to convince him to leave his wife for you, God is not going to forgive you this time.
Theresa: Look, I can't talk about this right now. I really need to go see Jane.
Pilar: No. Don't you dare go back to that mansion. Alistair is there and he's going to be very angry that you brought little Ethan here.
Theresa: Well, he can't keep my son from seeing you, Mama, ok, even if he is trying to adopt him.
Pilar: You signed a prenuptial agreement. He made a public declaration. He is -- oh, God, he is going to adopt little Ethan and make him his sole heir.
Theresa: No, he thinks he will, but I'm going to stop him. Look, I got to go. I've got to see Jane. It's Christmas, Mama.
Pilar: And you are not going to go by the hospital to see Ethan?
Theresa: No. I'm going to go to the mansion and I'm going to see my daughter.
Theresa: Hey, buddy? I'm going to go see your sister and wish her a Merry Christmas, so Grandma is going to tuck you in tonight. Is that ok?
Little Ethan: Ok. Good night, Mom.
Theresa: Good night, baby. I love you.
Theresa: Merry Christmas.
Fox and Kay: Merry Christmas.
Kay: Say "bye."
Fox: Good night.
Theresa: Good night.
Pilar: Be careful, mija.
Theresa: I will be, Mama.
Pilar: Dios santo, please stay with my daughter. Please give her the strength she needs to not break her promise to you.
Ethan: Theresa? What do you mean? What do you mean she was the one that put me in a coma?
Gwen: I know it's hard for you to believe, but it's true. And it happened when she tried to murder Alistair.
Ethan: What are you talking about?
Gwen: Honey, she put poison in some guacamole. She meant for Alistair to eat it, but somehow you wound up eating it.
Ethan: I remem-- oh, my God, Gwen, I remember this. I was on the phone. There was -- there was guacamole right in front of me when I was on the phone.
Gwen: Exactly. And you ingested so much that it put you in a coma.
Ethan: My God.
Gwen: It could've killed you.
Ethan: This is incredible. This is unbelievable, Gwen.
Gwen: I know. I know. I mean, we all know that Theresa's insane, but to try to murder someone, even Alistair, in cold blood? She belongs behind bars.
Ethan: No, Gwen, what I meant was, I mean, it's unbelievable how tortured Theresa must have felt to feel like she had to kill Alistair to just be free of him.
Gwen: Oh, please don't tell me after all that you've been through, after all the pain that she has put me through, that you are still defending her.
Sheridan: Chris, I -- I don't know what to say.
Chris: Don't say anything, at least not yet. I've made no secret of the fact that I've fallen in love with you, Sheridan. And I can hardly believe it myself that it happened so fast, so soon after losing my wife. And I've thought long and hard about this because I want to be sure that my feelings are true and this is not just some love on the rebound.
Sheridan: And you don't think it is?
Chris: No. This is not something that's going to fade away, Sheridan. I'm not going to ask you to marry me.
Sheridan: Marry you?
Chris: At least not yet, because I don't want to hear you say no. And I know this comes very soon on the heels of you losing Luis, and I'm not trying to rush you, but if you feel what I'm feeling, if you'll just let me show you how happy I can make you, I promise you I will spend the rest of my life trying to do just that.
Sheridan: Chris, your coming into my life when you did was a miracle for me. Having you and James around is -- it's made me want to live again. For a while there, I didn't want to go on. You have been so wonderful, so kind. And I think I'm ready, too. I want to be in your arms. I need you, too.
Gwen: I cannot believe that you are still trying to defend her when she just almost killed you --
Ethan: Gwen --
Gwen: When she is still trying to break us up. You know, look, I can just walk away. I can just walk away and let you two have each other.
Ethan: Gwen, no. Honey, listen, listen, all I said was that I can imagine how desperate Theresa must have been to try to poison Alistair.
Gwen: Because she is desperate and she'll do anything to get you back.
Ethan: You know I can't speak for Theresa, but I know she knows how I feel. She knows. I've told her over and over again I'm not going to leave you.
Gwen: Well, she's obviously not listening.
Ethan: Honey, I -- I can't imagine how terrible this whole ordeal has been for you, but nothing's changed. You're my wife, and it's going to stay that way.
Gwen: Ethan, I am so furious with her for what she did. Every time I think of the pain that she put us through and what she did to you and the fact that I almost lost you because of her --
Ethan: Well, I'm here and I love you very much, and I don't want you to doubt it anymore, please.
Gwen: Ethan, I love you. I love you so much. You know, I never thought I was going to feel these arms around me ever again. I thought you were completely lost to me.
Ethan: Well, I am here. I'm not lost and you are never, ever going to lose me.
Gwen: Hey, is something wrong? Should I call a nurse?
Ethan: No. No. Everything's fine. Everything is fine.
Theresa: Come here, pumpkin. Oh, yes. How are you? Merry Christmas. See, Mommy was hoping to give you a better present for Christmas this year -- your daddy. I was really sure that he would leave Gwen and he'd come back to us so we could be a family. But he got sick, and I made a promise to God that I would give him up if he let Ethan live. So guess what -- it's going to be you, me, and little Ethan. Alistair. Is that how the rest of my life is supposed to be? Married to that monster? God, help me, how do I do this? I love you. Yes, I do.
Judge Reilly: Why don't you say something, Alistair, huh? Too scared to admit it? She's back and you know it, don't you?
Alistair: You're a fool, Reilly. Someone's having some fun with us by putting that ridiculous ad in the newspaper.
Judge Reilly: What ad?
Alistair: Oh, you mean you haven't seen it?
Judge Reilly: No, actually, I haven't had time to read the paper today.
Alistair: Well, here you go.
Judge Reilly: "A murder is announced --" and the rose. Oh, my God, Alistair. This is -- this is the proof that she's back!
Alistair: It's proof of nothing but some kind of a hoax. Now, you stop acting like a scared little girl. She is dead. End of story.
Judge Reilly: No. No, she was here, Alistair! She was here in my office and she threatened me! And you must have known that she was back!
Alistair: Stop it, stop it, stop it! She has never been here! I don't want to hear any more about this. She is dead. She is dead.
Judge Reilly: All right, all right.
Alistair: Ok. That's better. Now, if you ever go against me again, you'll pay the price. Do you understand that?
Judge Reilly: I do understand it.
Alistair: All right. Reilly, this is just some kind of stunt by somebody, that's all it is. Now, all you got to do is relax.
Judge Reilly: Ok, well, I'll -- I'll try.
Alistair: What do you mean, "try"? Just do it! Do it!
Woman: The nightmare is only beginning, Alistair, and you know it.
Sheridan: No. Stop. Wait.
Chris: What is it? Something wrong?
Whitney: I have to get back to the convent now. I have to get out of here.
Chad: No, Whitney, you can't go back there. That's what's wrong, Whitney, not being here with me.
Whitney: I can't be here with you, Chad. I can't ever come back here.
Chad: What, are you saying that you're going to walk out the door and never see your son again?
Whitney: I have to.
Chad: You're going to go to the convent and lock yourself away from the world and you think you're never going to think about Miles again, never think about what he looks like when he grows up or how he's doing or if he's happy? Or if he's a sad little boy who knows his mother abandoned him?
Whitney: Ok, stop. Stop trying to make me feel guilty here. I mean, I'm doing what we both know needs to be done. Why don't you look at yourself for a second? You are the one who's sitting here living in a fantasy world, a world where it doesn't seem to matter that we've committed incest and that we have a child together.
Chad: Whitney, we didn't know we committed incest at the time.
Whitney: But we know now, Chad. And look, as much as I do love my son, as much as it's going to break my heart not to be able to watch him grow up, I can't be around you without, you know, without wanting to make love to you. And I can't do that. I can't live with that kind of sin on my soul all the time. So the only way that I can ever be free is if I never see you again.
Chris: Sheridan, is it too soon?
Sheridan: No, no. No, I do want to make love with you. It's just that this is a very important moment for both of us. I want it to be special.
Chris: It can't be anything else.
Sheridan: Then you'll give me a moment?
Chris: I'm not going anywhere.
Sheridan: There's a bottle of champagne in the small refrigerator.
Chris: Is there?
Sheridan: Yes, would you open it, please?
Chris: My God, you're beautiful.
Sheridan: You make me feel beautiful. Thank you.
Chris: To you. To your beauty, your kindness, your grace, and your loving heart.
Sheridan: To you and your love.
Chris: May we have many years of nights like this.
Fox: Somebody looks sleepy.
Kay: Well, she should be at this hour.
Kay: Mommy's going to take you to bed in a little bit, ok, honey?
Fox: I love watching you two together, you know, just imagining that you're my family.
Kay: That is so sweet.
Fox: I got to tell you, I'm glad we were able to work past our problems, you know, and just be together again.
Kay: So am I.
Fox: Yeah, I'm going to do my best to make sure that nothing comes between us.
Kay: I hope nothing ever does.
Ivy: You and I, we're not that different. I had Ethan, I married Julian, and all I could do was think about running away to get back to Sam. What about you? Have you thought about that? If Miguel comes back to town, would you just throw Fox aside to jump into Miguel's arms?
Fox: Kay? Something wrong?
Kay: No, nothing's wrong. Everything's fine. Everything's fine. Ok, go to Fox.
Fox: Come on. Here we go.
Kay's voice: It's silly to worry about Miguel. He's never coming back, at least not without Charity.
Pilar: Oh, boy. Little Ethan was so tired, he fell asleep before I could get him into the pajamas.
Kay: I know, he was really tired, and so are you, honey. Let's go take her back to bed.
Fox: Say, "bye, good night. Merry Christmas!"
Miguel: Mama, it's Miguel. Merry Christmas.
Pilar: What? Ay, dios mio!
Alistair: Where have you been, my wife, hmm?
Theresa: Look, I just need to get to bed. Excuse me.
Alistair: Ah, that's exactly what I had in mind. I've had a very upsetting evening. I need a distraction.
Theresa: Come on, get off! Let me go!
Alistair: Just shut up and kiss me!
Pilar: Where are you? Are you coming home?
Kay: Pilar, who is that?
Miguel: Mama, don't tell anyone I'm on the phone. I don't want anyone to know I called.
Alistair: You don't know how much this turns me on.
Theresa: Leave me alone!
Alistair: Not a chance!
Theresa: Stop! Don't do this!
Theresa: Don't ever touch me again!
Alistair: Ugh. Just where do you think you're going, back to Ethan, hmm?
Theresa: Anywhere as long as I'm away from you!
Alistair: You've got nowhere to go and nowhere to hide, nowhere to hide at all. Do you think that Ethan will ever want to lay eyes on you again, huh?
Theresa: Of course he will!
Alistair: Oh, no, not after Gwen tells him that you tried to murder me with poisoned food and instead Ethan was the one who ate it and ended up in a coma, right?
Theresa: You make it sound like I was trying to kill Ethan! It was you!
Alistair: No, you did try to kill him! You did. That's the reason he's been in that coma for so long. The man will never forgive you.
Theresa: Oh, yeah, he will once he knows that Gwen wanted to take him off life support but I wanted to keep him alive! Now, get off of me!
Alistair: Theresa! Someone is playing a big joke on me, and if I find out you're involved, I will destroy you! Do you hear me?
[Knock on door]
Nurse: Time for your medication, sir.
Ethan: Great. What am I taking now?
Nurse: A sedative because Dr. Russell wants you well-rested before she'll release you from the hospital. Would you like a cot brought in so you can sleep here tonight, Ms. Winthrop?
Gwen: That is a wonderful idea.
Ethan: Wait a minute, that's not a good idea, no. I can't allow you to stay here, honey. You're exhausted. You need to go home and get some sleep.
Gwen: I want to.
Ethan: Please don't make me feel guiltier about this whole thing.
Gwen: Guilty? What do you have to feel guilty about?
Ethan: Honey, you haven't slept in days. I can see it in your eyes. Please, I'll be fine.
Gwen: Honey, I just got you back. I do not want to leave you.
Ethan: I will be fine. It's not like I'm going to go into another coma, right? Right, nurse?
Nurse: It's highly unlikely.
Ethan: See? There you go.
Gwen: Look --
Ethan: I'll be fine. I just need some rest, that's all.
Gwen: Honey, I really hate the thought of leaving you.
Ethan: One more time -- I will be fine. Ok?
Gwen: All right, well, I'm at least going to stay here till you fall asleep, ok?
Gwen's voice: I know you'll be fine. I'm just so worried that Theresa's going to try to sneak in here again.
Nurse: He'll be well taken care of, Mrs. Winthrop.
Gwen: I know he will. Thank you.
Gwen's voice: If I catch Theresa trying to see Ethan again, I am going to kill her.
Sheridan: Make love to me, Chris. Make love to me.
Chad: Whitney, don't go.
Whitney: Please stop asking me to stay, Chad. My heart is already breaking. I'm never going to see my son again. I love you. I love you so much. And I'm sorry that I can't be with you.
Chad: What am I supposed to tell him about his mother when he starts asking questions?
Whitney: Well, tell him that I love him very much and that I did what I had to do so that I wouldn't completely ruin his life. And that his family will always be there for him. They love you so much. Look, I know it's going to be a long time before you completely understand this, but I know one day you will. I'm not strong enough. I can't stay away from your father. I'm not strong enough to resist temptation.
Chad: Hey, I can be strong enough for both of us, baby. Please, don't leave.
Whitney: Chad, you're not strong enough, ok? You know what's going to happen if I stay here.
Chad: Look at Theresa. She didn't give up on Ethan and a miracle happened. He's back, he's alive, Whitney.
Whitney: But what about my miracle? Huh? Why didn't I get what I prayed for? Because without my miracle, I can't be with you.
Woman: Where are you, Alistair? I have another surprise for you.
Second woman: Mr. Crane. There you are. Can I get you a drink?
Woman: You all right? You're not still upset about that ad in the newspaper, are you?
Alistair: No, I'm not upset at all. Just a little annoyed. Ah. Thank you. I think I'll have everyone in Harmony over at my place for New Year's Eve. I can see who thinks that this ad is so funny. I guess I'll just assemble all of my enemies.
Woman: Your enemies?
Alistair: Yes, the usual suspects -- the Bennetts, the Russells, the Lopez-Fitzgeralds, and even some of my family members who have betrayed me like Sheridan. They have no idea what kind of pain is coming their way.
Woman: No, Alistair, you have no idea of the pain that's coming to you.
Sheridan: Oh, Chris.
Chris: I love you, Sheridan. I love you.
Gwen: Good night, sweetheart. I will see you first thing in the morning.
Theresa: It's a good thing I'm in this uniform.
Theresa: My God. It's Gwen. If she sees me, I'm dead.
Sheridan: Oh, Chris.
Chris: I love you, Sheridan.
Whitney: I have to go.
Chad: No, no, no, wait, wait. I need to know what you prayed for. What Christmas miracle did you pray for?
Whitney: It'll never happen, Chad.
Chad: What was it?
Whitney: Nothing's going to change. I mean, you're my brother. Nothing can ever change that.
Chad: You prayed that somehow that we weren't brother and sister?
Whitney: It's stupid. It doesn't matter anyway. I have to go.
Chad: Please, don't go.
Whitney: I can't stay here, Chad. It's wrong. Goodbye.
Kay: Pilar, who is that?
Miguel: Mama, please don't tell them it's me.
Pilar: All right. It's just one of my cousins calling to wish me Merry Christmas, that's all. I haven't spoken to him in a long time.
Kay: Oh. Ok.
Pilar: Where have you been? We haven't heard from you in such a long time.
Miguel: I know. I'm sorry. I have a lot to tell you, Mama.
Pilar: So, are you coming home?
Miguel: Yes, but don't tell anyone. I want it to be a surprise.
Pilar: Ok. This is the best Christmas present ever. So did you find Charity? Are you bringing her home, too?
Theresa: Thank goodness.
Theresa: I love you very much, Ethan. I made a promise to God that I would give you up. I don't think I can. How can I?
Woman: Open your present, Alistair. That gift will remove any doubt you still have about me.
Second woman: Oh, I almost forgot -- there was a gift for you under the tree in the living room that you never opened.
Alistair: A gift from whom?
Woman: I don't know.
Woman: There's no card, but it is beautifully wrapped.
Alistair: All right. Let's see what we have here. Ok. Ah. Ok. What the hell is this?
Woman: Mr. Crane, this is very strange. Red rose petals? That scent?
Alistair: Got to be something else in here.
Woman: My God, it's a knife? You could've been hurt. Who would send something like this?
On the Next Passions:
Tabitha: If we had any sense, we'd get a bed and stay there until New Year's is over.
Theresa: Did you tell him that you tried to kill him? Wouldn't your husband just love to know that.
Alistair: All the secrets of Harmony are going to come out tonight.
Ivy: We're not going to this party, and that is that.
