Noah: So I’m still blind, right?
Reid: Never heard that one before.

— Noah and Reid

Transcript | 19 May 2010

Reid Oliver, Pillow-Hugger. Noah’s on the road to recovery. Reid goes completely passive-aggressive and starts telling Luke that they can’t tell Noah that they “kissed a few times and even almost had sex the day I cracked open his skull".” Then Luke takes Noah to the lake to skip stones and Reid goes home to drown his sorrows by hugging Katie’s pillow.

Luke: Hi.

Noah: Hey.

Luke: I brought you some lunch. And I, uh, put some new tunes on this for you.

Noah: Oh, thanks.

Luke: So, any changes?

Noah: Uh, it’s hard to tell. I mean, I — I can see light and dark and some colors, but shapes are still mostly blurry.

Luke: Yeah, but some of them are clear.

Noah: I think so. Uh, I can’t focus on anything. I — I try to focus, and nothing happens. It’s really frustrating.

Luke: Well, maybe you shouldn’t push it.

Noah: Yeah. It’s hard not to, though.

Luke: I know.

Noah: It’s like the other day. I was able to get out of the bed and even got out of the room by myself.

Luke: Well, that’s fantastic.

Noah: Yeah, I thought so, but then I overheard you and Dr. Oliver arguing in the hallway. I — I couldn’t make out what you were saying, but, you know, I just heard the tone.

Luke: Are you sure it was us?

Noah: Nothing wrong with my hearing, Luke.

Luke: Right. Sorry.

Noah: Yeah. I — I tried focusing on what you guys were doing, but I couldn’t. I couldn’t see.

Luke: Well, that will come.

Noah: I hope so. So, what were you guys fighting about anyway?

[Luke remembering]

Reid: What do you want from me? Tell me. You want me to pretend that nothing happened between us? That’s not the way I work. And we both know that’s not true.

Noah: So what was going on with you two? I thought you and Dr. Oliver were over your problems.

Luke: We are, we are. It’s just some days, I really have to try. He can be very hard to get along with.

Noah: So what was it this time?

Luke: Oh, you know, I can’t even remember. We were probably arguing about you. We argue about you a lot.

Noah: You shouldn’t fight with him.

Luke: I know. I just get protective.

Noah: Yeah, I never noticed. So, what were they, uh, doing to me that you didn’t like?

Luke: Um, honestly, I just — I can’t remember. You know, I really should, um, stay out of your care, but I can’t help myself.

Noah: You know, Dr. Oliver knows what he’s doing.

Luke: I know.

Noah: But if you want to worry about me, that’s okay.

Luke: Really? I thought you hated it.

Noah: I did at first, I mean, when I was still angry. But now I don’t mind so much. It’s who you are. It’s one of the reasons I love you. But could you do me a favor and, um, just steer clear of Dr. Oliver?

Luke: I will.

Noah: I mean, I — I know it’s not all your fault. I — I know how difficult it can be. If you ask him what time it is, he calls you interfering.

Luke: I know.

Noah: But he is also the reason I’m able to see at all right now.

Luke: I know. I’ll try.

Reid: I just, uh, need to check out my patient.

Noah: So, what do you see?

Reid: Your eyes.

Noah: [Laughs] Are they getting better?

Reid: Everything seems to be okay. I’ll — I’ll do, um — we’ll come back and do a more thorough exam later. Sorry.

Luke: That’s my bad.

Reid: I’ll — I’ll see you later.

Noah: That was really weird.

Luke: What was?

Noah: The way Dr. Oliver was acting? It was like he couldn’t wait to get out of here.

Luke: I didn’t get that.

Noah: You must have really ticked him off, Luke. I think you should maybe go apologize.

Luke: For what?

Noah: Just to be safe. For me?

Luke: Okay. I’ll be right back.

Luke: I hate lying to Noah.

Reid: So don’t.

Luke: I already have. He saw us in the hallway the other day.

Reid: So?

Luke: So if his sight had been any clearer, he would have seen that we were really —

Reid: That we’re really hot for each other?

Luke: That’s not funny.

Reid: You’ll know when I’m trying to be funny.

Luke: I have to tell him.

Reid: Tell him what?

Luke: About us.

Reid: I think that’s a really bad idea.

Luke: Noah is not stupid. He’s gonna find out soon enough.

Reid: Then he’s a lot smarter than I am.

Luke: I’m being serious.

Reid: So am I. Tell him what exactly?

Luke: Well, I’m not sure. But he thinks that we still hate each other.

Reid: Sounds like a perfect cover to me.

Luke: Yeah, but when he finds out, he’ll hate me.

Reid: Maybe he doesn’t need to find out.

Luke: Noah and I don’t keep secrets.

Reid: Maybe this is something you want to keep from him.

Luke: What’s wrong with you?

Reid: What’s wrong with you?

Luke: Nothing.

Reid: Then stop thinking about yourself for just one minute. If you tell Noah that something happened between us, you’ll pretty much be guaranteeing that he will never see you again.

Alison: So, how is everything?

Noah: Physically, fine. Emotionally, I’m — I’m not so great.

Alison: That sounds pretty normal to me.

Noah: Yeah, right. It’s amazing to me how some people can just make things so simple, like Dr. Oliver.

Alison: What do you mean?

Noah: He looks at your brain and sees what’s wrong, and then he goes to work.

Alison: I think it’s a little more complicated than that.

Noah: Yeah, well, not compared to my life.

Alison: Is this about Luke?

Noah: Yes and no.

Alison: Mostly yes. [Laughs] I thought you guys were gonna work things out.

Noah: I don’t know anymore. I mean, I just — I just wish things could go back the way they were before the accident. But, you know, so much has changed.

Alison: You still love him though, right?

Noah: As much as I ever did. I mean, hon — honestly I think more.

Alison: And I know he still loves you.

Noah: It’s not that simple.

Alison: Well, sometimes it is, or so I’ve been told.

Noah: Yeah. Those greeting cards can lie though, right?

Alison: Most of the time.

Noah: You know, what really gets me about this is that it’s — it’s my fault. The distance that Luke is keeping right now, I really hurt him when I pushed him away before.

Alison: Yeah, but he knows why you did it.

Noah: Understanding is one thing. Not blaming me is something else.

Alison: Yeah, so I’ve noticed.

Noah: Casey, huh?

Alison: I mean, I think he understands the whole thing with Mick as well as anyone can, I guess. But it doesn’t mean he’s ready to move on or, you know, pretend it never happened.

Noah: So you guys are — you guys are really over, huh?

Alison: We’re friends. Trying to be, I think.

Noah: See, I don’t just want to be friends with Luke. I’m — I’m sorry.

Alison: That’s okay.

Noah: I just — I hope Luke feels the same way.

Reid: No, hey, really. I think that’s a great idea. I think you should march right in there and tell that fragile man, whom you supposedly love, that we kissed a few times and even almost had sex the day I cracked open his skull. I think that’s gonna make him feel much better. Because then he can push you and me away. But, you know, hey, I’m only the guy who can give him back his sight.

Luke: I know that.

Reid: But what’s his vision matter compared to your confused little feelings?

Luke: You know, I almost forgot how much of a jerk you can be.

Reid: I’m a jerk? You’re the one who’s trying to sabotage Noah’s recovery.

Luke: No, I’m not!

Reid: Then don’t try to turn him into your father confessor. He doesn’t need that right now.

Luke: Yeah, but I have to be honest with him.

Reid: What is it about getting sick that makes everybody around them feel like that’s the time to unload their secrets on them? [Voice breaking] "I feel like I have to be honest with him at a time like this." No, you don’t. What you have to do is be there for him, help him deal. And if that means lying your butt off, then you damn well better lie your butt off.

Reid: Don’t rush the process. Healing has to happen on its own time.

Noah: Yeah, it’s just really frustrating.

Reid: I’m sure, but I think it’s gonna be worth the wait.

Noah: Huh.

Luke: Hey. How’s he doing?

Reid: As well as could be expected.

Luke: Does that mean he can go outside?

Reid: I don’t think so.

Luke: Just for some air. I won’t leave his side.

Reid: I’m sure you won’t.

Luke: Just for a few minutes.

Noah: I’ll be really careful.

Reid: Don’t forget that you’re still healing.

Noah: Don’t worry, I won’t.

Reid: Where are you planning on taking him?

Luke: Not far.

Reid: Don’t overdo it.

Luke: We won’t.

[Reid sighs]

Katie: You look as bad as I feel. Trust me. I’m gonna go pick up Jacob from the babysitter.

Reid: I’ll be here.

Katie: Why don’t you come with me?

Reid: Why?

Katie: It’s a beautiful day. We could go to the park, get some fresh air.

Reid: I’m not fond of air.

Katie: Come on.

Reid: No, I — I can’t right now. I’m really busy.

Katie: I see that.

Reid: Thanks for the offer.

Katie: Sure. Maybe next time.

Noah: It’s so beautiful. I can finally see colors.

Luke: That’s fantastic.

Noah: I know. It’s like I finally have something positive in my life, you know? You’re not smiling.

Luke: Well, I guess Dr. Oliver just freaked me out.

Noah: Forget about him. We’re out here, just the two of us. It’s the perfect time for us to just talk to each other.

Luke: Sure.

Noah: I mean it. You know, really talk.

Luke: Okay.

Noah: Luke, you know you can tell me anything, right?

On the next "As the World Turns" —

Luke: I think he’s confused about his feelings for me, with everything that’s happened.

Reid: I’m not.
