Téa: Thanks for coming.

Blair: Well, I got your message, and I decided to overlook the fact that you didn't see fit to invite me to your wedding.

[Téa chuckles]

Téa: It was kind of spontaneous.

Blair: I know. Jack told me, and look who didn't stop it.

Téa: You must really love eli.

Blair: Mm-hmm. We almost eloped yesterday.

Téa: What stopped you?

Blair: You. I mean, come on. We've shared todd all these years. I mean, did we really need to share a wedding anniversary? Ha ha! How are you?

Téa: Not great. I need to ask you a favor.

Blair: Well, sure, anything. What?

Téa: When I'm gone, will you be daniella's mother?

[Knocks on door]

Dani: Oh, go away, mom!

Todd: Dani, it's me. Can i come in?

Dani: No. You cannot unlock my door. Get out.

Todd: Dani--

Dani: No. If she wants to crawl off by herself and die alone, then fine. I don't want to talk about it.

Todd: Well, neither do I.

Cristian: Hey, how's it going?

Layla: It's going. You remember that box of evangeline's we brought back from maryland?

Cristian: Yeah, yeah. It's right here. I was just about to put it away.

Layla: Can you check it for a file?

Cristian: A file?

Layla: I saw one in there. It's labeled "bennett thompson." I need it at the station for a case.

Cristian: Oh, yeah. Yeah. It's right here. I got it.

Layla: Thanks.

Cristian: Uh!

Layla: Cristian? What was that? Cristian, please answer me. Cris.

Kelly: Can I talk to you in your office? I have a confession to make.

John: Uh--

Layla: Cris.

Natalie: You've got it. Jessica has been looking all over for that book. That's her bible. What, you looking for a few pointers, what to expect when your twin sister is expecting?

Natalie: Heh. Speaking of, i heard you popped the question.

Natalie: And she said yes. Can you believe it?

Natalie: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, of course. She loves you.

Natalie: She didn't always, but now it seems like that drunken night you and I spent together never even happened.

Natalie: Yeah. Anyway, congrats.

Natalie: Thanks.

Natalie: Hmm.

[Natalie sighs]

Ford: What are you doing here?

Nate: Don't ask me. What are we doing here, mom?

Inez: I need to speak to you and your brother.

Ford: No. Not gonna happen.

Nate: Hey, don't talk to her like that. I'm the one that took the money. She made good on it.

Inez: This has nothing to do with money.

Nate: Then why are we here?

James: Hey, what's going on out here?

Layla: Cris, are you there?

James: Come on in. I hope that you didn't come back for that 50k, mrs. Salinger.

Inez: No. That's not why we're here.

Nate: Why are we here?

Inez: Bobby--

Ford: Don't call me that.

Inez: It's time. James and nate deserve to know who they are, who I am, and you're not gonna stop me.

Gigi: Did you tell john you're pregnant?

Natalie: Yeah. Yeah, and he's really happy.

Gigi: That's great, but you're still worried.

Natalie: It could be brody'S.

Layla: Cristian, are you there? Pick up. There's something wrong with your cell. Cris!

John: I not communicate well? I mean, please tell me because i could've swore I specifically told you not to tell blair about the connection between eli and bennett thompson.

Kelly: I know, but I had to.

John: No. No. That's it. You didn't have to. She was here. You told her everything.

Kelly: She was gonna elope with the guy. What was I supposed to do, let her marry a killer?

John: You're lucky she didn't tell him.

Kelly: Did you find any more evidence, enough for a warrant?

John: Kelly, I know you want to find out who killed your mother, and I know you think eli did it, but until this investigation is resolved, you get nothing. You understand me? Nothing.

Layla: Excuse me, john. Cristian's phone went dead while I was asking I'm to bring in that file on...

John: Layla--

Layla: Bennett thompson.

Téa: The last few months, between the musical and the prom, she has really been letting me in. You know, we've gone on-- had these long talks about starr and cole and, well, you know, everything that's gone on between them, and now that she has a new boy in her life, i know that what she really wants to know is...

Blair: I see. If he really loves her or she really loves him--

Téa: Yeah, which is not something that you can talk about with your dad.

Blair: Well, certainly not her dad.

Téa: No. Ha ha ha! Certainly not her dad, and she-- ha ha! She really likes you, blair. She trusts you. You know, through that whole ordeal with ross, she turned to you. I saw her do that.

Blair: I'm gonna make a promise to you right now. Dani will never ever be alone, ok? She will have me. She will have todd. She'll have her brothers and her sisters.

Téa: What I'm really afraid of is that when I die, I know what that's gonna do to her, and i don't want her to shut down, act out, or hurt herself. You know, I know I can't control it. Ha ha ha! I can't control anything anymore, but it would make me feel a lot better if i knew you were there for her.

Todd: This is crazy. She wants to go off to a hospice by herself and not let us know where it's gonna be. It's so stupid and selfish, totally controlling.

Dani: She's so controlling.

Todd: Of course, it's all about her, always about her. We don't exist.

Dani: No.

Todd: I'm her husband, for god's sake.

Dani: I'm her only child.

Todd: She just wants to walk off into the sunset like some kind of diva.

Dani: She's such a diva.

Todd: I think she's just afraid to lose this fight, dani, or have us see her lose this fight, but as far as I'm concerned, who cares about a little drool or whatever? I mean, god, if that's the case, I can hire 15 people to walk around her all the time and wipe her face.

Dani: So what are we gonna do? How are we going to stop her?

Téa: I'm running out of time, especially for, you know, arrangements, these sort of things, things that require a clear head, and, blair, I know this is a lot to ask. You already have 3 kids.

Blair: Listen. It would be my honor to look after your beautiful, smart, tough little girl...

Téa: Thank you, blair.

Blair: Because I know how to deal with people who are tough, who shut down, won't let you in. Sometimes you just have to give them some space and let them have it. Other times, you just have to hold them tight and hope that they trust you enough to just let it go.

[Téa sobbing]

Ford: Talk to you for a second? Why is it, after all these years, you decide to come clean?

Inez: I have a new job. I have a new boss, and we were talking, and he said I should just tell you guys the truth.

Ford: I don't care if god told you. Leave it alone.

Inez: No. We can move past this, bobby. We can be a family. We just need to heal.

Ford: You can't heal scars, inez. It's done. It's over. Move on.

Inez: Not until all three of you know who you are.

Ford: Who we are has nothing to do with you!

Inez: That's not true. You are my sons. I pray for you every day.

Ford: It's touching.

Inez: Bobby... I was hoping that you could give me your blessing and help your brothers through this.

Gigi: Does brody know you're pregnant? Because, like I said, he'll do the math.

Natalie: I know, which is why i convinced john to keep this a secret until I know for sure, which, obviously, is not the reason I gave to john. I mean, i lied to him, and I hate this, you know, but I know it is what it is. I just got to keep the secret long enough to get the paternity test, and you know what? It could be john's, right?

Gigi: Brody is gonna figure out you're pregnant long before the baby is old enough for you to take this test. You're gonna start showing in a couple weeks.

Natalie: I don't want to lay this on brody unless I know it's his.

Gigi: You both did what you did. It wasn't just you. The sooner brody knows, the better.

Layla: I'm gonna run home and check on him to make sure he's ok. Can you call me if he shows up?

John: Sure. Go with her.

Layla: Why? Do you think something is wrong?

John: No, no. Brody can take a squad car and he'll get you there and back faster.

Natalie: Come on. I'll let you blow the siren.

[Door closes]

Kelly: Evangeline has a file on bennett thompson?

John: She had a file. Evangeline is dead.

Kelly: I'm sorry.

John: Me, too. Now, you can either leave the premises on your own or I'll have someone escort you off. What's it gonna be?

Téa: I don't want daniella to see me like that.

Blair: I know that it's gonna be tough for you, but--

Téa: I can't just have her see me like that. I can'T.

Blair: Ok. I guess you're just gonna have to rely on your gut, then.

Téa: And my gut tells me to say good-bye to her when I can look in her eyes and still be there.

Blair: You have a plan?

Téa: Yeah. I'm going to a hospice by myself.

Blair: Oh, Téa, todd is never gonna let you do that.

Téa: Oh, they're upstairs right now plotting.

Dani: You know, mom says that she doesn't want us to see her lose it, but I don't care. If she won't know me, I'll know her, and I want every minute that I can get.

Todd: Of course. So do I, but i don't know how to stop her.

Dani: What do you mean, you don't know how to stop her? You're todd manning. You can do anything.

Todd: Not quite.

Dani: Oh, come on. When nate needed half a million dollars, you brought it in cash. When that psycho pulled a gun on us, you shot him. When you wanted to marry my mom, you had a jp here by nightfall. If anyone can do this, you can.

Todd: Yeah, but this is a little different--

Dani: No. It's not different, and you've got money and, like, your own personal army.

Todd: More like a platoon.

Dani: Ok. So tell them to kidnap mom and bring her to some place where we can all be together. Or--I know--we can get dr. Evans to say that her tumor is making her incompetent or whatever, and then we can take her to court and get custody of her and bring her back here. Please?

Ford: You want my blessing?

Ford: You want my blessing? What you did is unforgivable. You left us. We don't want any part of you. Now get the hell out of here.

Nate: I told you already, don't talk to my mom...

James: Hey, get off of him. Get off him.

Nate: Who the hell do you think you are?

Inez: He's your brother. He's my son. Bobby is my son.

James: Bobby, what--

Inez: It's true. He's--

Nate: What?

Inez: James and bobby are your brothers. James... I'm your mother.

Natalie: There is no point in telling brody anything until i know for sure, at least until he figures out that I'm pregnant. Why ruin his happiness? He and jess just got engaged. He's on cloud 9. I don't want to ruin it for him.

Gigi: For him or for you?

Layla: Baby, are you decent? I'm here with brody. Oh, my god.

Natalie: Stay down.

Layla: Baby, wake up. Wake up. Oh, thank god. Are you ok? Who did this to you? What happened?

John: I'm asking you nicely. Please go home.

Kelly: I'm sorry. I'm not going anywhere.

[Telephone rings]


John: Yeah?

Natalie: Anybody else know that file was at cris and layla's?

John: Why?

Natalie: Somebody knocked cristian cold.

John: And the file?

Natalie: It's gone.

Téa: I wrote everything down in this book. It has all of her doctors' names, medical information, school information, and then, you know, just random things that I could think of.

Blair: I can never replace you, Téa, and I'm not even gonna try, but I promise you that I will always be there for dani.

Téa: God, I feel bad even asking you to do this.

Blair: Why?

Téa: Well, because you've just, you know, gotten free of todd and now I'm asking you to throw yourself back into his orbit.

Blair: Oh, please. We have 3 kids together. There's no way I'm blasting out of todd manning's orbit anytime soon, all right?

Téa: It's a good thing that eli does love her, you know?

[Doorbell rings]

Téa: Oh, I just hope todd and eli don't kill each other.

Kelly's voice: I don't want you to get hurt, and eli will hurt you.

Blair's voice: How? Why?

Kelly's voice: Because it's what he does.

Blair's voice: Because he's not who he says he is?

Kelly's voice: Because I have reason to believe he is a murderer.

Téa: Hey. Hi.

[Door closes]

Todd: That's a great idea, having her declared incompetent.

Dani: Ok. So should we get it started and call eli? You know, I think it would be better than having her trucked off by one of your goons. That might scare her.

Todd: Yeah, but I think having her declared incompetent in court, honey, is-- that's kind of your mom's world, you know?

Dani: Well, I'm not saying she's gonna like it.

Todd: No. She won't like it.

Dani: Maybe we should just lock her upstairs.

Todd: Lock her in her room?

Dani: Yeah. You got a better idea?

Todd: Uh-uh. I think-- dani, I just want her to be happy, and I feel like I have to do whatever it takes to make sure that she gets whatever she wants.

[ Sighs ]

James: What is going on here, bobby?

Ford: What she said is true.

James: That is the woman from the hospital, the one that you kept throwing out. She's our mother?

Inez: James--

Nate: No, no. No. No way. Mom, this is crazy. You said my father took off. What are you saying, you left him? You left your kids?

Inez: Your father, their father, was a sweet, charming, handsome boy when I met him, and I loved him, but he got himself involved in some nasty business, and he changed, nate. He became jealous and paranoid. He started to hit me. He would wreck the whole house, and I was scared of him. Then I found out that I was pregnant with you, and he didn't believe that you were his, and you were. I was never with anyone else, but he wouldn't listen to me, and he threw me out. I tried to tell your brother. I wanted to see you. He wouldn't let me see you. I tried, but your dad had connections all over dayton, and I had nothing. I had no money. I had no job. I had a baby on the way.

Nate: So I have two brothers and a father you stole me from.

Ford: Trust me. He's not much of a prize.

Nate: So you're saying you lied to me. Mom, you've been lying to me since the day I was born?

Ford: Hey, knock it off. You had it easy. James had the short end of the stick.

James: Damn it, bobby. Just give the woman a break already.

Layla: Oh, first, ford was attacked here. Now you.

Cristian: Hannah o'connor went after ford. This has nothing to do with that.

Layla: Brody, are we assuming this has something to do with that file that's now missing?

Cristian: I thought bennett thompson was just some lawyer that helped evangeline work on that living will. Why does anyone care about him?

Layla: Brody?

Natalie: We're gonna need to get forensics in here, so if you guys could try not to touch anything--

Cristian: What are you looking for?

Natalie: Well, something to I.D. Whoever hit you--a fingerprint, a hair, a fiber.

Layla: So, brody, are you thinking this has something to do with bennett thompson?

Cristian: Who the hell is bennett thompson?

Eli: So as soon as Téa discovered that I knew about her condition, she asked me to draw up her will.

Téa: Yeah. He made the mistake of asking if there was anything he could do for me.

Eli: So I came by today so she could sign it.

Téa: I have one more favor to ask the two of you.

John: Want you to go over to the palace and poke around, see if anyone saw elijah clarke coming or going, but don't let him catch wind of it. Cop: I'm on it.

John: Thanks.

Kelly: You should call blair, see if she's with eli.

John: Blair is not talking to me, thanks to you.

Kelly: Then I'll call her.

John: So she can alert clarke? No, thanks.

Kelly: The file is gone. Every time we get a jump on this guy, he gets a jump on us.

John: Kelly, go home.

Kelly: Wait a minute. Evangeline was a lawyer. One of the bennett thompsons in boston was a lawyer. Eli is a lawyer.

John: So? A lot of people are lawyers.

Kelly: Evangeline obviously knew something, even if she didn't know she knew it. See what I mean? I mean, somebody wanted that file enough to break into layla's apartment, hit cristian over the head, and steal it. There's got to be something in that file that bennett thompson doesn't want us to know. I'm thinking it's proof that eli and bennett thompson are the same person.

Gigi: Natalie, I think you're making this worse for yourself. It's bad enough keeping a secret from john, but to add brody to the list, it's too stressful, and that is not good for the baby.

[Cell phone rings]

Natalie: It's john. Hang on a sec. Hey, john, can you hang on one sec?

Gigi: Talk to him. I got to run. I got to preregister for classes.

Natalie: Ok. You go, you hot coed.

Gigi: It's gonna be ok.

Natalie: Ok. Hey.

John: How you feeling?

Natalie: Pretty good.

John: Yeah? Good enough to take on an assignment?

Natalie: What you need?

John: Can you grab your kit, head over to cristian and layla's apartment?

Natalie: Something else happened there?

John: Let's hope not.

Téa: After I'm gone, dani will still be a minor, and if anything happens to todd before she turns 18, she'll be alone, so if it's ok with you, blair, I'd like to ask you to be dani's legal guardian.

Blair: Of course. Absolutely. Téa asked me to look after dani.

Eli: That's great. She's a really good kid, Téa. I certainly enjoyed being her uncle for a while there. Our home is her home, anything she needs. That's a promise.

Blair: I have myself a keeper. Ha ha!

Dani: If you tell her that you just want to make her happy, she's gonna think that you're gonna let her go.

Todd: You know, before when you were throwing out all those ideas, I was thinking to myself, "of course. I can just pick up the phone and make this little problem disappear by tomorrow afternoon"...

Dani: Ok. So let's do it.

Todd: But last night, I made a vow to honor and respect my wife, and this is what she wants, and we can disagree with her, we can hate it. But.. you know, she's dying, and i think that if you're dying, shouldn't that be the one time in your life when you get to call all the shots?

Dani: No. She's always calling the shots.

Todd: Not in this, honey. I don't think she feels like she has any control over this. I think maybe that's why she needs to do this. She wants to feel like herself again. You know, she was always so in control and smart, and I think i have to respect that. I have to respect her last wishes.

Dani: So you're just gonna let her go?

Todd: I have to. ,,Ll hi, anne.

Nate: Are you defending her?

James: Dad said that you left with a guy and that he didn't want us.

Ford: The point is that she left you!

James: You left me, too, bobby, because of dad, because he beat the crap out of you!

Ford: Yeah, but if she hadn't left, maybe he wouldn't have done that!

James: Dad always said that you were no good, that I should hate you because you left us.

Inez: James, your father has a very serious problem.

Ford: A problem? And you left two kids to fend for themselves?

Inez: It wasn't my choice! Don't you understand that? I would never have left you! I love you! You're my sons!

Kelly: There was something in that file, ok?

John: Mmm.

Kelly: Social security number, a photo, something linking eli and thompson, and if evangeline has proof, ok, then somebody else has got to know how eli and thompson are connected.

John: Bruno, would you escort ms. Cramer off the premises?

Kelly: Could I get my purse, please?

Inez: I tried to stay close to you. I did. I would hide behind the fence and watch you play on the playground at school. Well, your father was too powerful. It wasn't safe for me to stay in dayton, so I left. And then we found out that you were here in llanview, bobby, and we came.

Nate: That's why you took me out of school, because of him?

Inez: I wanted you to know your brother.

Nate: And you couldn't tell me? I took my own brother's money! I almost got us killed! Ford hates me!

Inez: No! He didn't know who you were.

Nate: Because of you, mom! Because you didn't trust me! You didn't trust me!

Inez: Nate. Nate! Wait!

Ford: So much for one happy family.

Inez: Bobby. Please don't take my mistakes out on your brothers. Nate is a really good boy. He's a wonderful boy, and he didn't do anything wrong, and he needs you. He's not gonna talk to me now, but he might talk to you. You could go after him and make sure that he's ok. He's your brother.

Layla: Brody, please tell him he has to go to the hospital.

Natalie: Cristian vega, get that hard head of yours examined. That's an order.

Layla: You were married to him. How did you ever get through to him?

Natalie: I didn'T. Yeah, your eyes are looking there kind of funny. Might be a concussion. You should go.

Cristian: Ok. Ok, fine, fine. I'll go.

Layla: Thank you, thank you.

Natalie: You're welcome.

Natalie: You really think he has a concussion?

Natalie: No. It's just a lot easier to get work done if they're out of here.

Natalie: We'll canvas the neighbors, see if anybody saw our perp.

Natalie: Great.

[Door closes]

John: As soon as we have enough to establish a connection between clarke and bennett thompson and enough to bring him in, you'll be the first to know.

Kelly: I hope that you stay on top of blair if you don't want her to get married anytime soon. I don't think she will wait much longer.

John: Bruno.

[John sighs]

Téa: Thank you, guys, so much. Knowing that dani will have you in her corner, that makes this a little easier for me.

Eli: It's not a problem. I'll just...make those changes in the will and bring it back to you in a couple days.

Téa: I don't have a couple days. I'm going to a hospice tonight.

Eli: Oh. I'm so sorry. I had no idea.

Téa: Yeah.

Eli: Uh, you know what? That's ok. We can just fill in blair's name right here.

Téa: Ok.

Eli: There. Let's see. "Blair cramer." You know what? This pen's almost out of ink. Let me--let me get you another one. Da da da da. Ch ch ch ch. Ok. This will work. I just need you to fill in your name here and sign right there.

[Eli sighs]

Eli: That's it.

Téa: Thanks for making this so easy.

Eli: My pleasure. Call me if you need anything.

Téa: I have your number.

Blair: I'm gonna stick around a while, ok?

Eli: You stay as long as you need. Take as much time as you want. Oh, my god, Téa, I guess this is good-bye, huh? Well, you've been a worthy adversary in the courtroom, and a fine neighbor at the palace.

Téa: Ha ha!

Eli: And my brother was lucky to have been with you all those years.

Blair: I don't--I really just don't know how to say good-bye to you. You have been the best damn frenemy a girl could ask for.

Téa: Mmm.

Dani: So you did come up here to manipulate me into letting my mom go. Yeah, great.

Todd: No, that's not it at all. I came up to figure out a plan to make her stay.

Dani: Yeah, well, we've got at least 3!

Todd: Yeah, we do.

Dani: Yeah, and they'd work! We'd keep her!

Todd: Only for a little while.

Dani: Look, I don't care if it's even two days. You don't want to spend as much time with her as possible?

Todd: Of course! I want my whole life with her, dani! She gets me. And I get her, have to let her go is gonna be...

Dani: So why won't you--why won't you try to stop her?

Todd: Because I love her. Because I can't do that to her. Can you?

[Knock on door]

Kelly: Hey, eli, I left my computer on the chair. Can you let me in? Sir? Could you help me? Please?

Dani: No, no. What if this is a mistake? Ok, she gets there and she's scared and she's lonely and she needs us.

Todd: Well, then she'll come home, won't she? We'll go get her. It's not like she's going to the ends of the earth. She's in some hospice somewhere with real doctors and nurses.

Dani: Well, and they're gonna take care of her? They're gonna make sure she has socks? You know, her feet get really cold at night.

Todd: I know.

Dani: And a glass of water before she goes to bed. She needs a glass of water. She doesn't--she doesn't even drink it. She just wants it there!

Todd: We'll make sure she has all those things. Ok? Come on.

Dani: No, no, no, no.


Dani: I can'T. I can'T.

Todd: Yes, you can. You can do it. You can do it. We can do it. You have to be strong for her. We can do it.

Téa: Whenever I am near floor-to-ceiling windows, i think of you.

Blair: Ha ha!

Téa: Ha ha! You have made my life a living hell!

Blair: Right back at you.

Téa: But I give you this. I probably wouldn't be here right now if you hadn't been such a pain in the ass about me getting treatment.

Blair: Well, hell, it's always life or death with us, isn't it?

Téa: We actually have a lot in common, blair.

Blair: Oh, don't make me puke.

Téa: Ha ha. It's true. We're both strong, smart women who don't take anything from anybody.

Blair: I'll give you that.

Téa: Under different circumstances, we might even be friends.

Man: I never used to notice we were friends taking them for granted especially how words that go unspoken speak so loud to me these are the moments to remember
