I chose you

good choice indeed,
because now that I got you, nobody else is gonna touch you.

convinced she pulled the plug on C.C.'s life support. Cruz comes to the Orient Express.
They're dancing cheek to cheek to The Change In Me making small talk. Looking into each
C: Eden, do
you think about me?
E: I think it's bound to be that way sometimes.
C: I've been dreamin' about what it would be like to
hold you again --
(movement stops) even when I'm alone, I feel the place where
your waist would be and your shoulder, how it fits under my arm
E: Cruz, this is very dangerous.
C: Baby, I miss you.
E: I'm sorry I hurt you.
C: Would it do any harm if we just put this behind us
for a while?
E: I don't know.
C: Do you want me to let you go?
E: I don't want you to talk any more. (hug-dancing again-cheek to
The dancing ends-they begin discussing
Cruz being taken off of C.C.'s case.
C: Why are we
talking about this?
E: Because I don't want you to have to hide things. I
don't want you
lying for me. The man I loved would never do something like that.
C: The man you loved.....still loves you. It's funny
isn't it? You were
always afraid I'd stop and now that you want me too, I can't.
E: I'm sorry.
C: Do you love him?
E: I don't want you to be alone.
C: You know, I just can't believe the that all the
things you used to
say to me meant so little, they could disappear overnight.

you know why.

E: I wanted to talk about where we stand with each
other, what we
mean to each other.
C: I don't see what good this could do.
E: Well, I'm tired of pretending. Aren't you? I mean
every time we see
each other there's so much going on below the surface, so much
we don't say.
C: That's the way it has to be Eden. I thought you understood
E: I just can't take this dishonesty another second -
it's eating away
C: I'm married - I can't change that.
E: Look at me - I just need to hear you say it. I need
to hear it -- it's
been so long since I've heard the truth. I just want to hear you
C: You KNOW how I feel.
E: Can you stand there and tell me that you don't want
to touch me?
C: What do you THINK?
E: I know one thing......every time we talk about how
dangerous it is
to be together, I feel like it would be worth it if I could just
love to you one more time. I dream about you at night----almost
every night, I do....about you're hands on my body, your mouth on
mine. Sometimes it's so real that I think it could almost be
C: I can't listen to this.
E: Cruz, please, I just.......need you.......so much.
Do you still love me?
C: If I told you I did, what would it mean?
E: Everything, it would mean everything to me. Are you
in a hurry to
be getting back?
C: I don't understand why you're doing this but I can't
give you what
you want..........even if I do want the same thing.

fought many battles and endured a bit of pain, we claim the right
do this. Even when there was an easier way, we stood by each
other and our beliefs. Over time, our respect for each other has
grown, our love has continued to deepen. To the extent in which
we have the power to control, we intend to stay together for the
rest of our lives. We ask for your grace. Amen.

C: I promise to always be where you are. I will comfort
you, and take
your comfort. Ill protect you and be your companion. I will
honor you, and be honored so long as you choose to be with me.
E: I wonder if you know how much you've changed me.
Only you, in
my whole life, have never given me reason to doubt you. You
have kept every promise. You loved me no matter how unworthy
of it I may have felt
or acted that way. I didn't think such
was possible. Before you, I didn't care about my life. I was
and selfish, and I thought that all the good things like trust,
love, was some terrible lie that people made up so they would
have something to look forward to, even though they didn't exist.
think I was hoping that someone would come along and show me
that I was wrong. And then I met you. You seemed too good to be
true. I put you through every test. I showed you the worst sides
but still, you were there. And you never ran. And when I
you chased me down and you brought me back, and you showed
me the good things. Until one day, I finally believed them. I
that I will never lose faith in that again. I promise that I will
remember the good things, because you showed them to me. And I
promise to love you as long as I live. I want to have our
and I want to try and make you happy. I hope I live a long life,
can make you as happy as you've made me...

hiding out in a sea grotto.... (unintelligible here, then) I
to you and I would bring you food and clothes and you would build
a big fire and we would hold each other and sit in front of it

sitting there and your telling me that you can't remember me, and
want you to remember.

E: I really
want to believe that everything is going to be exactly the
way we wanted it to be.
C: Oh, it will be, eventually. I would give anything in
the world if I
could change what happened, but you know I can't. I also, can't
help but think about the other times when we thought there was
no hope, when you couldn't walk...you were convinced that we
would never be together again, but we got through that, it was
tough, but we did and we will get through this.
E: This is just something that I thought we should be

Oh, you know there may have been times when it seemed like God
E: I know, I know (she's now smiling with joy as well)
C: I just don't believe it....I love you, nobody has
ever been as
honored as i am, to have you.
E: (she's now feeling better, upon noticing that he's
happy about the
news, she smiles with delight and says..) "I haven't thought
anything, I havent thought about names, or baby furniture,
job, or whether it was gonna be a boy or a girl..I
about anything. (she starts to slow down and pause with that last
sentence, upon realizing that his expression had changed and he
was just silent I guess). What? (looks of worry and sadness
to show again on her face...gosh, Marcy was brilliant during all
these scenes I remember, all the ups and downs, all the mixed
emotions that she portrayed SO WELL!)
C: Well, I just hope you've been doing what needs to be
E: Nothing needs to be done
C: Well there's regular doctors appointments or
E: Oh, it's too early for that(he pauses for a while,
C: How early is it, how long have you known?
E: Not very long (her answers were kinda abrupt and
were in a tone
in which you could tell she's worried and sad about the
conversation getting further, cause she knows what he's thinking)
C: Why didn't you tell me ?
E: Because, I wanted it to be perfect, I didn't want
there to be any
sadness, I didn't want anything to touch it.
C: So you just found out for sure? (she now gets sort
answering the questions, more so,
E: No I knew before, what does it matter
C: It doesn't. I just...I mean, did the doctor give you
E: No I didn't see a doctor (she now is in a total
state of worry and is
so sad and disheartened that they are even discussing this)
C: So what...you gave yourself a test?
E: No, I didn't have to, I just knew, I'm more sure
than any tests could
C: 'nods a yes and looks worried'
