He’s a jerk, but a talented jerk.

— Bob (to Kim)

Transcript | 12 March 2010

HappyInChintz72’s Reid Oliver Story Parts TBC

Anthony D Langford March 12, 2010 Parts TBC


Reid: What’s this?

Katie: It’s something to remind you of Oakdale.

[Both laugh]

Reid: Handcuffs?

Katie: Well, a keychain with little, mini handcuffs.

Reid: Yeah.

Katie: Now, I know you’re not gonna keep in touch, but I am. I’m gonna send you pictures of Jacob every month.

Reid: Digital pictures only. I can’t get baby pictures in the mail. It’s bad for my image.

Katie: Okay, yeah. Well, I’ll keep that in mind.

Reid: So long, sport. Bad luck having to grow up in this town, but you sure did ace it in the mom department. You know that? You keep her out of trouble, all right?

Reid: Don’t try to do everything yourself. Make sure you get out, take some you time.

Katie: Or what? You’ll come back and kick my butt?

Reid: Don’t get your hopes up.

Katie: I really wish you didn’t have to leave. If Henry would just donate that money to the hospital, you could stay. I don’t understand why he’s being so selfish.

Reid: It’s just Hank being Hank. All right. Don’t get all weepy. I got you something, too. I didn’t wrap it, though.

Katie: Okay. [Gasps] A business card. You shouldn’t have. That’s what I’m thinking.

Reid: Turn it over.

Katie: What’s this, your home number?

Reid: That’s my beeper number. Nobody has that except the hospital and now you, and you call that anytime if you have any kind of problem day or night. You know, Mr. Snyder, you’ve been eavesdropping long enough to figure out that this is a private conversation. Go away.

Henry: You know, I think I’m gonna use some of the inheritance for the diner to sort of spruce it up a little bit.

Barbara: Are you sorry you didn’t grant Katie’s wish and give a big donation to the hospital?

Henry: No, I’m not sorry about that. If she wanted money to heal the sick, that would have been a no-brainer. I would have signed a check in a heartbeat, but she wants that money to keep Reid Oliver in town, and I can’t stand that guy.

Barbara: No. Well, I think that you have earned the right to enjoy your wealth any way you want, however you want.

Henry: I want you.

Barbara: Do you?

Henry: Mm-hmm.

Barbara: Mm-hmm. So, what are you doing later?

Henry: What did you have in mind? Oh. That’s funny, ’cause that’s exactly what I had in mind, too.

Barbara: Well, I was thinking about that after some dinner.

Henry: You want to — you want to go out to dinner? I — I thought we were keeping this thing private.

Barbara: Well, we can find a private restaurant where we don’t know anyone. I mean, it’s just dinner.

Henry: This is just sex.

Barbara: Exactly. The arrangement won’t change anything, you know. Just two adults enjoying each other.

Henry: I can do that.

Barbara: Aah!

Henry: I got to go. I got to go to the diner, okay?

Barbara: Okay.

Henry: But I want you to stay here as long as you want to.

Barbara: Okay.

Henry: And let’s have an early dinner, just so that we can have as much time afterwards for whatever, yeah?

Barbara: Yeah.

Henry: Oh, yeah.

[Elevator bell dings]

Vienna: Hi, Henry.

Henry: Vienna. How? W-when?

Henry: Sorry about that. You’re here. You’re right here in front of me.

Vienna: Mm-hmm. It’s good to see you, Henry.

Henry: It’s good to see you.

Vienna: How are you?

Henry: Fine.

Vienna: Are you gonna ask how I am?

Henry: I don’t have to. You’re — you’re spectacular. I’d tell you to trust me on that, but you don’t, trust me, that is. It was really nice running into you.

Vienna: No, no. Henry, wait. I’m here to see you.

Henry: Why?

Vienna: Because I want to tell you how proud I am of you, what a wonderful, generous, and noble man you are. When I heard what you’d done, I just knew I had to see you, and I knew that my Henry was back.

Henry: What did I do?

Vienna: Well, you know, you donated your inheritance to the hospital to build a new wing.

Henry: Who told you I donated the money to the hospital?

Vienna: Well, who do you think? Katie, of course, and she was so happy about it.

Henry: I bet she was.

Vienna: Finally, you’re doing the right thing about this money, and I always knew that you had it in you.

Luke: I wasn’t eavesdropping. I’ve just never seen you be nice like that before.

Katie: Yeah. I’ve been trying to work on that with him.

Reid: Some people deserve kindness. Others are like you.

Luke: So, are you saying that you’re rude to me because I deserve it?

Katie: No. That’s not what he’s saying. Would you stop?

[Cell phone beeps]

[Katie gasps]

Katie: Oh, my God!

Reid: What is it?

Katie: I’m not sure yet. You’re not leaving for an hour or so, right?

Reid: At least. Why?

Katie: Okay. I have to go. Just make sure you do not leave without saying goodbye.

Reid: I thought we just did that.

Katie: That was a warm-up. Stay put. I’ll see you soon. Bye, Luke.

Luke: So, are you and Noah driving to the airport together?

Reid: What am I, a seeing-eye dog? Are we joined at the hip?

Luke: Will you be sitting next to him on the plane? Hey. I’m talking to you.

Reid: And yet I’m not listening. Oh, come on. You got to be kidding me.

Luke: What’s wrong? Is it Noah? Did something happen to him?

Reid: There’s nothing wrong with your boyfriend, all right? My flight to Dallas got delayed. It’s like this town has tentacles. I need a drink.

Luke: You know, Dr. Oliver, I think I could help you with that.

Reid: Going the rest of the day without seeing your face in this God-forsaken town would be helpful, indeed.

Luke: I can let you borrow my private plane. That way you and Noah can get to Dallas whenever you’d like.

Reid: As tempting as the offer is, it has one very large drawback.

Luke: What’s that?

Reid: It comes from you.

Reid: Seriously? Is there no place in this town that I can go to avoid you?

Luke: Look, if you don’t want to take my jet, that’s fine, but could you for once think about Noah?

Reid: Noah can get to Dallas however he wants to. I’m gonna fly commercial.

Luke: Why? Because I’m offering this to you? Do you have any idea how childish that sounds?

Reid: Yep, but it’s not as ridiculous as you chasing me all over town, whining that I’m not gonna play with your toy. Oh, my God. You’re sitting down?

Luke: You know, I think that there’s something else going on here.

Reid: And what would that be?

Luke: You tell me. You’re so anxious to leave Oakdale. I give you a solution that could cut three hours off your travel time and you turn me down because it comes from me. Now, who does that?

Reid: I’m unique.

Luke: No. See, I don’t think this has to do with me throwing my money around or how I got you to Oakdale.

Reid: And your keen instinct tells you what?

Luke: You wouldn’t treat me this way if I was the straight husband or wife of one of your patients. You don’t respect me and Noah because we’re gay. That’s it.

[Reid laughs]

Luke: This isn’t funny.

Reid: You think I’m homophobic? That’s hysterical.

Luke: Well, why don’t you let me in on the joke, Doctor? What? Is your best friend gay or your mom or your dad? Who?

Reid: Me, Mr. Snyder. I’m gay.

Vienna: Did you miss me?

Henry: What do you think?

Vienna: I think we hurt each other very badly.

Henry: And you left, and when you did —

Vienna: I was lonely for you, too, my love.

Henry: Vienna, what I’m trying to say —

Katie: Vienna!

Vienna: Katya! My sister! I missed you!

Katie: I missed you, too! I’m sorry. I would have been here earlier, but it was time for Jacob’s nap, so I dropped him off at Nancy’s.

Vienna: Oh, my God. I can hardly wait to see him. He must be so big by now.

Katie: Yes, and growing by the second. Look at you! Wow! You look amazing! Doesn’t she look amazing?

Henry: Always.

Vienna: Thank you. Thank you so much for calling. I mean, Henry’s doing such a wonderful thing, and I didn’t want to miss this. So, thank you so much.

Katie: Oh, absolutely. It was my pleasure.

Vienna: So, is there gonna be, like, a special ceremony, a ribbon cutting, or a groundbreaking?

Henry: That is an excellent question.

Katie: Well, the details haven’t been worked out yet, but now that you’re here, you can help Henry with that.

Vienna: I’d love to! I’d love to! We could — you know what? We could have a party here to celebrate his donation to the hospital, and maybe I could get some of the old recipes and put together a new menu or something? Oh, my God! Don’t you just love giving away millions of dollars? It’s so much fun!

Henry: That was a dirty trick you pulled, calling Vienna.

Katie: So?

Henry: So? So, I told you I was not giving my money to the hospital. It’s my inheritance. Forget it. I won’t do it.

Katie: Really? And when are you gonna tell that to the woman you love?

Henry: The woman that I love doesn’t love me. She left me, remember?

Katie: She came back. Henry, she has stars in her eyes for you! Isn’t that worth donating money you don’t need to save lives?

Henry: I suppose so.

Vienna: I just love this place. It feels like I never left.

[Cell phone ringing]

Vienna: Are you gonna pick up?

Henry: Yeah. Let’s — let’s take a look at those recipes.

Vienna: So, why don’t we walk back through the park, huh? You remember that little grove we used to go to? Oh, and what about the gourmet — the gourmet store. Is that still there? Do they still have that chocolate sauce I used to love so much?

Henry: Yes. I’m sorry, Baby. I got to make a phone call, okay? Sorry.

Vienna: Do you think he’s happy I’m back?

Katie: Why wouldn’t he be?

Henry: Hi.

Barbara: Did you get my message?

Henry: I haven’t had time to listen to it.

Barbara: Oh. Well, I was just getting ready to slip into a nice hot bubble bath so I’m all relaxed and ready for our night this evening, and I found this lotion that tastes like chocolate, because I know you like to nibble.

Henry: Barbara, I’m sorry. I’m gonna have to take a rain check on our plans for tonight.

Barbara: Why? What’s happened?

Henry: Something — something came up at Al’s that I have to deal with.

Barbara: Well, tomorrow, then.

Henry: That might not work either. Do you mind if we just play it by ear for now?

Barbara: Don’t we always?

Henry: So, we’re okay.

Barbara: Of course we are. That’s the beauty of our arrangement, Henry. No pressures.

Henry: Right. I’ll — I’ll see you soon.

Katie: Okay. Well, I am going to leave you two alone. I’m sure you have a lot to talk about.

Vienna: Yep. I missed this place, and I’ve missed you, Henry.

Luke: You’re messing with me. You’re not gay.

Reid: You’re requiring proof? How would that work, exactly?

Luke: Well, you never mentioned anything. Are you really that deep in the closet?

Reid: Mr. Snyder, I’ve known that I was gay since I was 9 years old. I can assure you that in all that time I’ve never once hidden, apologized for, or been ashamed of who I am.

Luke: Well, that I can believe, but you never said anything to Noah or me.

Reid: Why would I?

Luke: Well, because it could have helped!

Reid: What? So that we could share the secret handshake?

Luke: It’s called relating, Dr. Oliver. You meet someone. You learn things about them. You find what you have in common, and then you get along better.

Reid: So, you’re telling me that if I had told you that I’m a Pisces yet ironically allergic to fish, you and I would have bonded?

Luke: Maybe.

Reid: Here’s the thing, Mr. Snyder, I didn’t want to bond with you, and unlike you, I don’t feel obligated to spill my guts all over who happens to be within range.

Katie: What do you want more than anything?

Reid: To wake up and discover that the last few months have been one tragic nightmare.

Katie: Henry decided to donate his inheritance to the hospital. He’s gonna build that wing for you. So, I just have to get Bob to sign on and you are good to go, or good to stay, as the case may be.

Reid: I’m sorry you went to all that trouble for nothing.

Katie: What do you mean? Even if they build the wing, you’re not gonna stay?

Reid: I don’t belong here. My life is back in Dallas. The sooner I can get the hell out of here, the better.

Vienna: Listen, listen. I know this isn’t easy. I left you more than once.

Henry: Yeah, you did. You did, and it crushed me.

Vienna: Yes, and I thought about that decision every day since I left, but I was afraid, Henry, and I couldn’t deal with being hurt by you again, and the lies were just too much.

Henry: I’m afraid I’m gonna disappoint you again. It’s what I — it seems to be what I do.

Vienna: No, Henry. Don’t say that. Listen, you’re a good man, and I fell in love with the very best part of you, and I know that you can be that man again, and this donation to the hospital proves that.

Henry: I’m — I’m touched by your faith in me, and it means a lot to me, but I —

Vienna: You mean a lot to me.

Next week on "As the World Turns" —

Luke: I need more from you, and if you can’t give me that, I can’t do this anymore.
