Fox: Astrology. You said no to my marriage proposal because the--the--the planets are out of whack, right?
Kay: Well, yeah.
Fox: Yeah. Yeah, no--no this is great, are you kidding? I thought there was a real reason why we couldn't get engaged. I was freaking out there for a second.
Tabitha: If Kay starts wearing your ring, Fox, you'll be freaking out all right. The dark side doesn't play games, you know.
Gwen: Oh, look at all these beautiful co-ops for sale in New York.
Ethan: Yeah, you see the prices though?
Ethan: Yeah, there's no real estate bubble in Manhattan. Will you consider Connecticut, maybe New Jersey?
Gwen: No, are you crazy? Honey, it's always been a dream of mine to have an apartment in New York. And if we can swing it, Central Park West. Just picture it, ok? I'm going to paint you a picture.
Gwen: We will have a view of the park. You'll be able to take walks with Jane to the Museum of Natural History when she's older, Mozart at Lincoln Center, the whole thing. The whole thing.
Ethan: I can't say no to you. I can't do it. And you're in luck because Lawrence Grant--not only was he willing to hire me away from Crane, but he was not stingy when it came to my starting salary. So, I suppose we can go apartment hunting as soon as we get to New York.
Gwen: You mean it? Is this really going to happen? Are we finally--finally going to be away from Theresa? Oh, God! Why are you not saying anything? Oh, please tell we are never going to have to see Theresa again?
Theresa: There must be some kind of a mistake. This says that Ethan has already landed a job in New York with our strongest competitor. Who the hell does Lawrence Grant think he is? I thought that Alistair made it perfectly clear to everyone in this industry that Ethan is off limits.
Man: All that I know is that Grant has always been a thorn in Mr. Crane's side. F.Y.I., he is in Harmony at his branch office all this week.
Theresa: All right. I want you to call Alistair's driver. I am going to pay Mr. Grant a visit.
Sheridan: Chris, wake up. Oh, no. Who did this to you? Oh, God. Oh, my God, you contacted those people you know in the mob to help me find Marty. It's my fault Luis was killed and now you're dead, too.
Fox: This is fantastic! No, this is the most--this is the best news I've ever heard in my entire life, Mrs. Nicholas- Foxworth-Crane-to-be.
Kay: Don't call me that!
Fox: Why--why? No. What you are talking about "don't call you that?" Now that I know why you turned down my marriage proposal, we can get engaged today. What do you feel about a summer wedding?
Kay: No--no, you don't understand. I am serious. We--we can't really get engaged right now. We can't even start talking dates or anything yet.
Fox: You are really serious about this whole planet-out-of-alignment bunk, aren't you?
Tabitha: Watch what you are calling bunk, boy.
Kay: You were just really mad a minute ago.
Fox: No, no, no. Now, hold it--don't confuse. I wasn't mad, I was disappointed. You have to understand, I thought you were still hung up on Miguel, but, you know, now that I know the real reason why you turned down my marriage proposal, we can get married whenever you want, baby.
Kay: Did--didn't you hear what I said? The planet--
Fox: Yeah, the planets. I know. They're--they're not in its align--they're jacked up, I understand that. But you know, they are going to get back and aligned eventually, right? That's what they do, right?
Kay: I--I guess so.
Fox: You guess so? Hold on a second. Why don't you know so? Kay, what the hell is going on here?
Sheridan: Chris, please wake up. Please, you can't be dead. Chris.
Sheridan: Oh, thank you, God.
Chris: You're gonna have to do that solo, I'm afraid. At the moment I don't feel like thanking anybody for anything.
Sheridan: Oh, I am not surprised. Can you move at all?
Chris: Oh, I am not feeling too agile at the moment.
Sheridan: Let me help you to the bed. Come on. That's it. How's that?
Chris: Ah, it's better.
Sheridan: Ok, now tell me, who did this to you? I knew it. You contacted those people you know in the mob to help you find Marty and they turned on you, didn't they?
Chris: What gave you that idea?
Sheridan: I am so sorry. This is all my fault.
Chris: How's that--how is it your fault when I am the idiot who contacted them against your wishes? I just thought them being on the wrong side of the law, they might be able to give us a shortcut at Beth and Marty.
Sheridan: See what happens when you involve yourself in my life? I almost got you killed the same way I killed Luis and Antonio.
Chris: Shhh. You didn't kill them, Alistair did. And I am very much alive, if not kicking. It's not half as bad as it looks. See? Ah! Well, not that bad anyway.
Sheridan: We should get you to a hospital. You should be checked by a doctor.
Chris: Forget it. Forget it. I'll be fine once you clean me up. That's a hint, by the way.
Sheridan: You really should be checked by a doctor.
Chris: No way. I mean it, Sheridan, I am not going.
Sheridan: All right. Let me get a washcloth.
Chris: Now you're talking. I couldn't ask for a prettier nurse.
Sheridan: Thank you for risking your life to find my son. Just because you didn't learn anything doesn't mean--
Chris: Who said I didn't learn anything?
Sheridan: You found Marty? Where is he?
Gwen: What is going on here? Is there something you're not telling me?
Ethan: No, not at all. It is just that things are not as cut and dried as you would like them to be.
Gwen: How can you say that? Because Theresa is either in our life or she is not.
Ethan: What I am saying is Theresa has been abused, ok? With broken promises and lies, and not to mention some brutal rapes, Gwen.
Gwen: Wait a second. She knew exactly what she was getting into when she married Alistair. Honey, nobody--nobody twisted her arm.
Ethan: She was desperate to be near Jane, you know that.
Gwen: No--no she was desperate to be near you. And you want to make a list of unspeakable suffering? How about mine at her hand? She's responsible for the death of our daughter. She stole our embryo then tricked you into sleeping with her. She had to abort our unborn son so she could give birth to her child with you.
Ethan: Calm down.
Gwen: Calm down? I am not going to calm down. 'Cause we're right back to where we started, and I cannot live like this Ethan, not another day, not another second. And if you're not going to protect me and Jane from that woman, then I have to do it myself. I don't ever want to see her ever again, even if that means never seeing you.
Lawrence: Thank you, Gracie. Well, you made excellent time, Mrs. Crane. Do sit down. First of all, let me extend my deepest sympathies regarding Alistair. It must be devastating for you.
Theresa: Not really. My husband's merely getting a small dose of just what he deserves. We're all hoping that he never makes it out of the hospital.
Lawrence: I see. Well, I must say I find your honesty quite refreshing. The truth is, I've rather been hoping I would never have to deal with your husband again myself. He has undercut my company in innumerable ways for years.
Theresa: Well, isn't that what business competitors do?
Lawrence: Yes, but in Alistair's case, it was never about healthy competition, more like a blood sport.
Theresa: That sounds like him.
Lawrence: So, how may I help you?
Theresa: Well, you've hired Ethan Winthrop.
Lawrence: Yes, in fact he's due to start in our New York office the beginning of the week. I am looking forward to it--
Theresa: Don't. I want you to rescind your job offer.
Lawrence: I am not going to do that. And if that was your only reason for coming here, then you have wasted your time. Good day.
Chris: Sheridan, you misunderstood.
Chris: What I meant was, after Lenny and fat Harold--their nom de plumes, I am sure--after they finished pummeling me into this bloody mess that lies before you, they did promise to keep their ears and eyes open about Marty and Beth.
Sheridan: Do you think they meant it?
Chris: Who knows? That's all we got. The good news is those boys know the island like the back of their hand. If Beth and Marty are here, they'll get word.
Sheridan: Chris, thank you.
Sheridan: Oh, I am so sorry. I'm such an idiot. Did I hurt you?
Chris: Bad news is I am a little sore. But any time you want to show your gratitude, don't let a little assault and battery stand in your way.
Sheridan: You won't be able to pull me off of you if you find my little boy.
Kay: Ok, the thing is, is that I am--I am really into astrology. I'm just not into the charts and the moons and stuff like that.
Fox: Ok, isn't that like the whole thing though? I mean--so, is that why you don't know when the planets are going to line themselves up?
Kay: Right. Right, I just know that right now is not a good time for us to get engaged.
Fox: Are you sure this is really the reason you turned down my proposal? Because...
Kay: Of course--of course it is. I love you, and I can't wait to marry you one day.
Fox: Yeah--yeah, I know. It's just--I mean talking--it kind of seems you are covering, you know, for maybe--maybe another reason.
Kay: I would never do that.
Fox: All right--all right, ok. So, how do we do this? I mean, how do we--how do we find out when these planets line themselves up again?
Kay: Tabitha. Tabitha--she--she would know because she's into this kind of stuff, so...
Fox: Ok, perfect. Where is she? Let's go get her. Well, you know, if we can't get engaged today, maybe she can tell us when we can?
Kay: Yeah--yeah, that's a good idea.
Fox: Yeah, look, I mean, here's the thing. You know, I just--I just love you, you know? And there is nothing I want more than for you to wear my ring.
Kay: Me neither.
Tabitha: Don't hold your breath, Fox. I'm just wondering what the boys in the basement are going to make of all this.
Theresa: You do know I'm acting C.E.O. of Crane Industries.
Lawrence: How could I not? It was the lead story in this morning's "Wall Street Journal."
Theresa: Then I am going to ask you to reconsider your answer to me just now.
Lawrence: Let me tell you something, Mrs. Crane. All of my professional life I've had to kowtow to the wishes of your megalomaniacal husband. I've had to think and rethink every deal I wanted to close. I've had to hire extra security just to stay one step ahead of Alistair's hired-gun industrial spies. I'd even had to carefully monitor my own personal life just to make sure I didn't give him anything he could possibly use to blackmail me. Do you have any idea what that's like? Having Alistair Crane's shadow hovering over you all the time, just waiting for a chance to do harm to you and your company?
Theresa: Better your company, Mr. Grant, than your person. Nobody knows better than I just how despicable Alistair is. He's ruined my life, and he's ruined the lives of my friends and my family, and I hate him with every cell in my body.
Lawrence: Well, then you'll understand why I am jumping at a chance to sever any and all ties with Crane Industries. Never again will they control or oversee a move I make, either personally or professionally. And hiring Ethan Winthrop away from Crane was nothing short than delayed and much deserved justice. Our meeting is over. And don't call me. And I have no intention of ever calling you.
Fox: Oh, Tabitha, excuse me.
Tabitha: Oh, what a nice surprise. I gather you two have mended your fences.
Fox: Yeah. Yeah, ever since I found out why Kay turned down my marriage proposal, we've never been better.
Tabitha: Oh, you don't say.
Fox: Yeah, turns out the woman that I am madly in love with-- Kay here--is addicted to astrology. I barely know what sign I am. What sign am I?
Tabitha: Leo. You can tell just by looking at him he's a Leo.
Fox: Great. So, uh, which brings me to my next point, actually. Kay seems to think that we can't get formally engaged until the planets are realigned, ok? I was wondering maybe if you could clue me in as to when-- when that might be?
Tabitha: Oh, well, I have to consult my charts to give you an exact date.
Fox: Could you--could you do that? Because we are kind of anxious to get this whole thing under way.
Tabitha: Oh, yes--right. Well, you'll have to give me a moment while I dig out my astrological charts.
Fox: Ok. Do you mind if I put on some coffee?
Tabitha: Oh, please be my guest, dear. This won't hold him off forever, you know?
Kay: Yeah, well, I don't want it to be forever, remember? I can't wait to marry him and spend the rest of my life with him. It is killing me to postpone this engagement for one day, let alone a week or month or however long it's going to take. How long is it going to take?
Tabitha: I told you, the boys in the basement don't play by the rules. They make up their own rules.
Kay: Ok, so what you are saying is even when the planets line up...?
Tabitha: Yeah, they still expect their pound of flesh. There's no telling when or even if they'll allow you and Fox to stay together.
Fox: What the hell was that?
Sheridan: I'll never be able to repay you for what you've done for me.
Chris: Tell me that when I've actually found your boy.
Sheridan: I am amazed at how far you'd go to help me.
Chris: I'll do anything for you, Sheridan. I love you.
Sheridan: I love you, too. You should rest.
Chris: I've got a better idea.
Sheridan: I said rest.
Chris: I can rest later.
Ethan: You don't mean that.
Gwen: Ethan, if you are willing to defend Theresa, even now after everything she's done to us, then yes, I do. Now, I am willing to do anything to protect our marriage from her, but I can't fight with you, too.
Ethan: You don't have to.
Gwen: Then why do I feel like I do? I do not want to leave you. You and Jane are my whole world. But I have suffered more than enough at Theresa's hand. Now she's the head of Crane. Every opportunity we have, she's going to stop. We were supposed to be in India today starting a brand new life, and look what she did.
Ethan: I know. We are not going to India, all right? But we are going to New York.
Gwen: But it's still in the same continent as that bitch. It's still on the east coast. And if I knew and felt secure in the fact that--that you were going to help me never to see Theresa ever again, then maybe I'd be ok with it. But the way you are talking, you are already entertaining ideas of seeing her now and again, and I am not going to take that. I refuse to live that way. And listen, here's the deal, ok? You are either 100% on my side with this, meaning keeping Theresa out of--out of our life for good, or you're not. And if that's the case, I would rather go it alone with Jane.
Lawrence: You'll have to excuse me. I have work to do.
Theresa: The thing is, Mr. Grant, I understand your position. From personal experience, I am well aware that my husband is a monster. Like I told you earlier, he has done unspeakable things to me and my family. I've been through hell and back at Alistair's hand. He's hurt everyone that I've ever loved and cared about, including my two children. But as you can see, I'm a survivor. And apparently, Alistair recognized that, which is why he named me as his successor.
Lawrence: Well, as I said, Mrs. Crane, that is your business. You run yours, I'll run mine.
Theresa: You talk about the hoops that he's made you jump through over the years. That's nothing compared to the humiliation and degradation that he has heaped on me. You talk about his shadow hovering over you, keeping an eye on your every move. Well, I had to endure a great deal more than that. I survived being married to the bastard. I survived everything that that pig had to dish out. In other words, Mr. Grant, if I could survive Alistair, I certainly can survive you. If he couldn't break me, then a run-of-the-mill business shark like yourself certainly won't. I am not going anywhere, Lawrence. I am not leaving here until you rescind your job offer to Ethan Winthrop.
Tabitha: I know my charts are in here somewhere.
Fox: Never mind the chart. What the hell was that noise in the basement? It sounds like you got a pack of wolves living down there.
Tabitha: Oh, mercy no. I don't even like poodles. No, that's just, um, my old furnace acting up again.
Fox: Yeah, I'm not sure I'm buying that one.
Tabitha: Why not?
Fox: Well, I have got to be honest with you, you have been telling me it is your furnace acting up since I have been coming over here. Why don't you just spring for a new one?
Tabitha: You Cranes--really. How lucky you are never having to worry about where your next meal is coming from. A woman alone on a tiny fixed income... I know I need a new furnace, but with the high price of heating oil this winter, I've had to make some difficult choices. Maybe next winter.
Fox: Sorry... about that. I really hope you can, though, you know, buy a new furnace. I don't know how you two get a decent nights sleep around here, much less the girls. I'm sure the coffee is--you want any coffee?
Fox: Tabitha? Ok.
Kay: Never mind the boys in the basement. Nothing is going to ruin my relationship with Fox. He is everything that I have ever dreamed of for Maria and me.
Tabitha: Oh, yes, I know. I've heard it all before. He's smart, he's funny, he's devilishly handsome. As a matter of fact, he reminds me of one of my old beaus, Barnabas. Did I ever tell you about Barnabas Collins? Oh, he was a tad eccentric but he was so sexy, and he had the most devastating smile.
Kay: [Fumbling] Shh! Not now. We're talking about me, remember? And the planets.
Fox: Find that book?
Tabitha: No. Oh, uh--uh, yes. Here it is. Mm-hmm.
Fox: All right. So... great. What does it say? When do the planets line up so we can get engaged?
Tabitha: Not long. Not long, just a few months.
Fox: Few months? Are you kidding? Well, at least wear the ring until then, huh?
Tabitha: No, absolutely not.
Fox: Why absolutely not?
Tabitha: Because. It's just as Kay said. Wearing the ring would indicate acceptance of your proposal, and that just can't be until the time is right.
Fox: Oh, for crying out loud. I got to tell--I think the two of you are blowing this whole astrology thing way out of proportion. The planets--planets, are you sure that's the reason that you rejected me? Planets?
Kay: Yes, yes, I promise. She's right. We just have to wait just a few months.
Fox: I want to get engaged now.
Kay: Me, too, but... ok, you're probably going to think I'm nuts, but the truth is is that I have become very superstitious. A lot of things in my life haven't exactly gone my way in the past few years.
Fox: Well, that's because you've been trying to do everything by yourself. And what I'm saying is that's all going to change once we get engaged and then married.
Kay: I know, and I want to protect that. I can't imagine if something went wrong for us. I don't think I would be able to take it. That's why it's just really important that we start things off on the right foot. Just humor me on this one.
Fox: Yeah, ok. So, we'll wait till the planets, you know, line themselves up in that order that they need to be in, and then I'll ask you again.
Kay: Thank you. And when you do, I will say yes.
Chris: I love you, Sheridan.
Sheridan: Oh, Chris. Oh, God, we can't be doing this. You are in pain.
Chris: No, really I'm fine, ok? Those are just muscle spasms. Don't stop.
Sheridan: Look, I don't want to stop, but this is crazy. We shouldn't be making love, you should be resting.
Chris: Well, maybe there's a way we can do both. Come with me.
Sheridan: The hot tub?
Chris: Well, you are concerned about my aches and bruises, aren't you? Heat should help, and especially if I have somebody to apply it.
Sheridan: Why do I have a feeling you are bringing me here for more than medicinal purposes?
Chris: There's all kinds of medicines, you know?
Lawrence: Bravo--or should I say brava? Most impressive.
Theresa: Excuse me?
Lawrence: From what I understand, you've only been married to Alistair Crane a few months. You must be a very quick study.
Theresa: Among other things.
Lawrence: "Oldest daughter of Pilar and Martin Fitzgerald. Born and raised in Harmony. Mother, a house keeper. Father abandoned the family when she and the siblings were very young."
Theresa: Where did you get that?
Lawrence: "Fell in love with Ethan Crane, now Winthrop. Almost made it to the altar with him, but the wedding was cancelled by Ethan when he learned that she had contacted tabloid newspapers with information that she had not given him, i.e., that his real father was police chief Sam Bennett and not Julian Crane, as everyone thought."
Theresa: I wasn't the one who sent the information to that gossip column.
Lawrence: In the pain of your rejection by Ethan you followed his ex-father, Julian, to the Bahamas, where you both ended up drunk and believed that you were married.
Theresa: That was a trick that one of Julian's friends played on him. The marriage was never legal.
Lawrence: Mm-hmm. Still, it did have its repercussions. Namely your first born--a son, fathered by Julian, named of all things, little Ethan.
Theresa: All right, I have heard enough!
Lawrence: And your island shenanigans didn't do anything to help your case with your true love Ethan, did it?
Theresa: That has nothing to do with you. And that has nothing to do with our discussion.
Lawrence: Come now, Mrs. Crane, you have even got Ethan's name on your charm bracelet.
Theresa: That is my son's name, Mr. Grant, and my personal life is none of your concern.
Lawrence: Oh, no? I'd say your personal life is why you're here.
Theresa: Ok, fine. Why don't I tell you the rest of the story? That way you'll get your facts straight.
Lawrence: Keep it short.
Theresa: I love Ethan, yes. I always have, I always will, and I will continue to do whatever I can in order to be with him.
Lawrence: All to no avail, it seems.
Theresa: I'm not giving up. And anyone who thinks that I should is selling me short. I even married a sick and perverted man who did hurtful things to my family in order to be close to him.
Lawrence: Not to mention your daughter. I understand Ethan and his wife have custody of your little girl.
Theresa: Yes. And Alistair promised that he would help me get her back. But he didn't because he lied. He tricked me.
Lawrence: Well, surely that came as no surprise.
Theresa: Well, it doesn't really matter now, does it? Because here I am, head of Crane Industries, in charge of everything that Alistair owns and controls, personally and professionally.
Theresa: Meaning that you'll not hire Ethan Winthrop. Ethan is to be at Crane Industries under our payroll.
Lawrence: Now you're underestimating me. You and I both know this has nothing to do with business. You remind me of my 5-year-old daughter playing dress up, pretending to be an executive. What are you going to do when I say no again, stomp your feet and have a temper tantrum? Well, it won't work, Theresa, because I'm a real businessman. And no matter what you might have learned from Alistair, the bottom line is this--I have hired Ethan. He's about to start working for me, and none of your drama queen theatrics are going to change that.
Theresa: You call it what you like. And yes, I may not know everything about the business, but trust me, I'll learn.
Lawrence: Well, call me when you do.
Theresa: Well, you're willing to take the chance that I'm not going to leave you alone until then?
Lawrence: You don't scare me.
Theresa: Well, then you're not as smart as you claim to be. You think that Alistair gave you a hard time over the years? Well, trust me. You're going to think that Alistair is a real pussycat by the time I'm through with you.
Lawrence: You got a lot of brass, Mrs. Crane, I'll give you that. But a word to the still green behind the ears--no more threats.
Theresa: Oh, they're not threats, Mr. Grant, they're promises. And I promise you, if you don't give my what I want--in this case Ethan--than I will sink you and your company.
Fox: Ok, so, I tell you what. If you're not going to wear the ring, then--then I'll wear it.
Tabitha: Remind me to find you a diamond tiara to match.
Fox: Yeah, I'm not going to wear-- I was thinking about putting it on a chain around my neck under my shirt until you agree to wear it.
Kay: Aw, you would do that for me?
Fox: Yeah, I would. Just, you know, can you not tell anyone?
Kay: I won't. Oh, you have got to be the most romantic and beautiful man I have ever known.
Fox: Thank you. Just hold that thought. I'm going to get a refill, ok? Tiara...
Tabitha: Stop swooning, dear, you are playing with fire again, you know.
Kay: Why? I'm not going to be wearing the ring, Fox will.
Tabitha: They might think that's cheating. That you're trying to have your cake and eat it.
Kay: Yeah, well, you know what? I don't care they think anymore. I have given up enough for them already. No more.
Tabitha: The boys in the basement don't want to hear that, Kay. They're still expecting payment for the success spell that you had me cast on Fox, and at the time, you said you were willing to pay, whatever the cost.
Kay: Yeah, well, at that time I didn't think the boys in the basement would be so hateful. I still believe that true love is stronger than anything they can dish up.
Tabitha: Oh, what fools these mortals be.
Kay: You'll see, Tabitha. We'll just see.
Tabitha: I'm afraid you're the one who will see, Kay.
Sheridan: Feeling better?
Chris: Excellent. Keep this up, I can enter the Winter Olympics. You know, it's amazing how healing a hot tub and a beautiful woman can be.
Sheridan: I look a wreck.
Chris: Never. You have a glow about you. A radiant, soft glow that no other woman I've ever met has.
Sheridan: You're embarrassing me.
Chris: I don't mean to. I just--I don't have the words to describe how much being with you means to me. I don't deserve you, Sheridan.
Sheridan: I'm the lucky one, Chris.
Ethan: Sit down. I love you. I love you. I want to spend my life with you no matter what.
Gwen: You say that you love me, but you don't say what I need to hear the most--and that is that you don't love Theresa.
Ethan: I have never lied to you about that. She and I were very, very close once, and I'll always care about her, Gwen.
Gwen: I think you're always going to love her.
Ethan: I will never jeopardize what's important to me--our marriage and our family. I really want what's best for you, for me, and for Jane.
Gwen: Then you will agree that getting Theresa away from us is the right thing to do?
Ethan: Honey, that's why I took the job in New York. Yes.
Gwen: What about after we move? You know her. She's going to come up with every excuse in the book to see Jane.
Ethan: It doesn't mean that we have to be around if and when that happens. I'm telling you, the last--the next time we see Theresa, it is going to be at Jane's wedding.
Gwen: That would be a dream come true. And I guess if we need to communicate with her for any reason, we can do it through lawyers, right?
Ethan: Exactly. Once we're in New York, Theresa is out of our lives completely.
Lawrence: You're bluffing. You don't have what it takes to play hard ball.
Theresa: Oh, really? Do you think that you're the only one who has done his research? I know more about you than you think I do.
Lawrence: I don't buy it. Frankly, you gave yourself away when you called here to make this appointment. Alistair would never have lowered himself to coming to see me here. He would have summoned me to his office or sent one of his lackeys.
Theresa: Well, like I said before, I haven't learned all the tricks yet, but I do know a few things. For example, when Ethan started working at Crane Industries, he signed a contract with us, it's a binding agreement. He's not free to accept other employment.
Lawrence: Well, let's let our legal department sort out your corporate raiding claim, shall we? In the meantime, Ethan will be in New York working for me.
Theresa: Or not. I propose to leave my legal department out of this one. No--no, I'm going to turn this issue over to quite a different department at Crane.
Lawrence: What department is that?
Theresa: The one that Alistair used to solve sticky issues. The one that he used to overthrow pesky governments around the world. The one that he used to have high-ranking foreign officials assassinated. The very same one that he used to have my two brothers murdered in cold blood! That department, Mr. Grant.
Lawrence: Those are the tactics of a cold-blooded monster, Theresa, not a nice catholic girl who was raised knowing right from wrong.
Theresa: Well, you have heard of the separation of church and state, Mr. Grant? I believe in the separation of business and church. Although, you'll probably be seeking solace in one by the time I am through with you.
Lawrence: Surely you realize that you are not Alistair. Just because you're in charge of Crane for the moment does not give you the authority to use that same evil power.
Theresa: Are you willing to take that risk, Mr. Grant? I suggest you contact your legal department for advice. And in the meantime, I will contact my special department. And I think we both know which one has the better track record.
Lawrence: You're bluffing again.
Theresa: It's your gamble to take, Mr. Grant. Now, since you obviously have done your research on me, I would suggest that you read through it more carefully. After everything that Alistair has taken from me and from my family, I've got nothing left to lose. It is about time that I've been given the power to get what I want, and you damn well better believe I'm going to use it all. I want Ethan to work here for me in Harmony and not for you in New York. It's your choice, Mr. Grant. Either you call Ethan and tell him that your job opening has been filled, or I turn Alistair's special department loose on you and yours, any way they see fit. Do you still think I'm bluffing, Mr. Grant?
Fox: So, I'm glad you like my idea about wearing the ring.
Tabitha: I have a rather nice man's chain in a wooden box on my dresser upstairs. You can borrow that if it works.
Fox: Ok. I'll give it a whirl. Let's just keep it on the down low. I'll be right back.
Kay: You see? Fox and I are still together. And even if we're not engaged, at least we're informally engaged to be engaged.
Tabitha: And that, my dear, is the closest you're going to come to the altar with that young man if the dark forces have anything to say about it.
Kay: Yeah, well, they don't. And if they do, I don't want to hear it.
Tabitha: Don't antagonize them, Kay. You can't pull the wool over their eyes, and you certainly can't fool around with the stars and the planets.
Kay: Oh, shut up. I am sick and tired of all of this gloom and doom! My life is wonderful right now, and it is going to stay that way. Soon, Fox and I are really going to be engaged to be married.
Gwen: You really mean that? We are not going to have to see Theresa till Jane's wedding? You know, because I don't think that Jane should get married till she's about 35.
Ethan: I was thinking more 40, actually.
Gwen: Even better.
Gwen: Ooh, we are going to have a wonderful life in New York. Theresa's going to be so busy running Crane, she won't even be able to hunt us up there.
Ethan: Exactly, exactly. I got to admit, this job in Manhattan was a godsend. If Lawrence Grant hadn't had the guts to hire me away from Crane, it'd be a heck of a lot harder to start a whole new life without Theresa.
Gwen: Well, I owe him a big, big "thank you."
Theresa: I may not know much about business but I have learned from the most ruthless, power-mad executive in this world. I know the full extent of the Crane name and power, and you damn well better believe I'm going to use it all to sink you. So, if your business means anything to you, if you feel the least bit responsible to your family and your shareholders, don't go to the mat on this. Simply call Ethan and tell him that you've rethought your job offer... now!
On the Next Passions:
Gwen: We are going to New York and there's nothing Theresa can do about it.
Maya: If those thugs come back, somebody could end up dead.
Noah: Fancy, watch out!
