    We're Just Close

    Tuesday, November 20 2007
    Gus is torn between two families, Harley is finding it harder to hide her feelings, Marina and Frank try to reconcile, Daisy and Beth are trapped in an elevator.

    At the mansion, Alex flatly tells Harley that she seems to have a 'thing' for Cyrus. Harley insists that they are just 'close.' Alex chuckles. 'Close? That's a loaded word.' Harley explains that even if she had feelings for the Australian, what kind of person would she be if she acted on them? Alex asks her what happened between them while they were under the rubble. Harley remembers kissing him, but only tells Alex that they played rock, paper, scissors. She walks out and bumps into Gus. She invites him over for the holidays, but he probably has plans with his other family so... He'll come, he insists. They share some awkward laughs and she leaves. He walks into the sitting room and pulls out the engagement ring he offered Natalia.

    Dylan arrives at Harley's and starts knocking on the door and calling in. Daisy finally hears him over the music and lets him in. She starts reading him her speech for a pep rally. He stares at her, happy to see that she's back to being a good girl. 'You're incredible,' he smiles as she tells him all about the shoe drive. She felt like she had to do something that means something; she can't let one choice define her life. The abortion changed Rafe and she doesn't know how to get him back. Later, Daisy runs into Beth in the elevator at Towers. Beth says that Jim would miss Daisy so much, he'd be so happy to see her now. She starts talking about babies and the elevator stops. The baby starts to kick and, as time goes on, they become anxious. Daisy tries the emergency phone. Beth slumps and falls onto the floor. Daisy sits down beside her and Beth asks her if she wants to feel the baby kicking. That makes Daisy uncomfortable. She asks Beth about what it's like to be pregnant. Beth says that everything feels very settled with Rick. The emergency phone rings to see if they are still there. Beth is getting hot and breathing deep. She calls Alan by accident and tells him what's happening. He jumps up to run over. Daisy asks her why she called Alan. Beth doesn't know. They talk about Daisy's father for a moment until Alan starts calling. He pries the door open and pulls Beth out. He puts his arm around her and tells her how worried he is. When he offers to take her to Cedars, she says that Rick can check her out at home. She thanks him and rushes away. Daisy goes up to Dylan's room at the Beacon and sits in the dark alone.

    Rafe meets Alan for dinner at Towers. Alan lets his grandson know that he is on his side. He tells him that he doesn't like the way that Gus is treating him. Rafe tries making some excuses for him. Alan tells him that they will be spending Thanksgiving together. But who knows which family Gus will be spending the holidays with? Meanwhile, Gus tracks Natalia down while she works at The Beacon. He interrupts her bed making to give her a cinnamon roll. 'I will wait as long as you need me to,' he says, taking her hand and telling her that he wants to spend Thanksgiving with her and Rafe. She tells him that he'll have to find him first. Later, Rafe tracks his mother down. She asks him to spend the holiday with her and Gus. He's surprised Gus isn't spending it with Harley. Later, when she's back at the mansion, Gus runs in and tells her that Harley invited him over to hers for the holiday, and not just him, but all of them. Natalia thinks that's a bad idea, but he should go and see the boys and not worry about her and Rafe. He thinks they should do both. Rafe overhears this and finally steps in, launching into a sarcastic attack on his father. Gus asks to talk to his son alone. Natalia leaves and Gus tries to explain himself. Harley's sons are like sons to him and he can't just leave them. Rafe says that they'll get over it, he did. Zach and Jude already have dads, but he and Nat only have Gus 'and most of the time, we don't even have that.' After his son storms away, Gus sits on the desk and stares at the ring again. Marina walks in. He tells her that he proposed to Natalia. Meanwhile, Natalia tells Rafe that she's been offered extra work for the holiday. If they work together, they can make more money and use it to buy Christmas gifts. He agrees and she hugs him close.

    At CO2, Marina gets a coffee when Frank runs up to her. She tries to avoid him as he butters her up, telling her that they are due to crush Coop and Harley in touch football. He can't do this anymore, he admits. 'I love you and I miss you,' he tells her as Cyrus watches nearby. The father-daughter share a few laughs and coffee and sit down. She tells her father that she and Cyrus love each other more than ever. They start arguing again and Frank reminds her that Cyrus robbed a charity. She stands up and Cyrus walks over. 'Hello chief,' Cyrus smiles. Frank buries his fists in his pockets. He tells Cyrus that he's just lucky that he's still there. Cyrus reminds him of how much he's hurting his daughter. Frank throws it back at him and walks away. Marina feels bad and wishes that she didn't care so much, but he's her dad. Later, Marina runs into her aunt and asks her if she should bring anything to the holiday meal. They ramble through a conversation and Marina suggests that her aunt invited Gus just to get back with him. When she tells her aunt that Cyrus isn't coming anymore, Harley seems disappointed. Marina didn't think things would be like this, she admits. All that she thought about in captivity was life with Cyrus... now she has it and it's all thanks to Harley. She hugs her aunt and hops away leaving Harley gritting her teeth. She does her shopping and heads home to find Cyrus waiting at the door. He helps her carry the turkey in and she jokes that it's probably not good that he come tomorrow— Frank carries a gun after all. He starts teasing her and offers to help cook potatoes. They start cooking together and she tells him that she invited Gus. 'You still love him right?' he asks. She nods and looks away. After spilling some pie mix on his shirt, he takes it off and she tries to stop herself from staring.

    Hi bremarie, mom6, guyfromSTL, and Aussie:
    What a strange show today. Is Gus and Nat going to be engaged or is Gus just playing with her feelings again? Does he want Harley or not? He is getting on my last nerve. When is Alan going to learn about his baby? What is with Rafe these days? Don't think I like his character anymore.

    Hi 3pups
    I can't wait till Alan finds out about the baby, that should be fun. I wonder if they are going to make Thanksgiving hard for Lizzie b/c Sarah was born on that day.
    Hi b, guy, and aussie

    OMG Harley, could you possibly be any more obvious???? I hope she didn't buy that turkey frozen if she plans on cooking it right away. But if she does it should be ready by Thanksgiving.
    We need to get this Cyrus thing over with once and for all. I certainly hope that Nat didn't spill any crumbs on the guests bed at the Beacon. But of course someone that noses into guests private belongings probably doesn't care.

    Nice to see Daisy finally went back to school. Pep rally, shoe drive, please, don't make me laugh ha ha.

    Hey Mom6:
    What happened to the good old days of the Bauer dinner parties? And, why does Mel have the house, didn't it belong to the Bauer kids? I have another question, why does Daisy have a room in the hotel? Who is Lizzie having Thanksgiving dinner with this year? Just too many questions unanswered.

    Harley doesn't want Gus anymore..that is so obvious. She is all into Cyrus now. Harley didn't appreciate Gus when she had him. Allen needs to know that Beth's baby is his. Cassie needs to pay for changing the DNA results. Josh needs to stop covering for his mentally ill wife. I hope Edmond lives, so he can really stir up trouble for all of them. They think what they do is okay, no matter how evil it is. At least Edmond doesn't claim to be good. Ha!

    3Pups, Mom, aussie and of course guyfromSTL and all my fellow posters
    this is my last day of work before the holiday, so I want to
    wish you guys a Happy Thanksgiving, even if you don't celebrate it in your country.

    If you are driving, (like to Springfield) please take care.

    Harley needs to reign in her hormones.

    Kind of a strange mix today. Will anyone be together for Thanksgiving? I don't get Harley and Gus. It's just bye-bye nice knowing you, move on to the next one?

    Hay 3pups,
    When your husband cheats on you - you get the house. So much for the Bauer BBQs.

    Happy Thanksgiving bremarie and anyone driving to Springfied should have Thanksgiving with the Coopers - good food I'm sure. Just don't plan on sitting next to Cyrus the seats are already taken.

    Isn't it strange that Alan was the one Beth called?

    Cyrus seems more natural and at ease with Harley than he does with Marina. Why wouldn't Gus just tell Harley that he'd already made Thanksgiving plans with Natalia and Rafe instead of Harley dragging it out of him. Also, why would he choose the day before Thanksgiving to tell Harley he's proposing to Natalia? I would think your feelings for someone when you were sixteen are quite different after not seeing him/her for seveteen years. Natalia must have a strong faith to keep herself in tact for "Nick". Gus, however, is another story.

    Dylan could have stayed where he was. Daisy, Daisy, doesn't everyone in Springfield know you've had an abortion and you were a bad girl that ended up in Juvie?
