>> Previously on "One Life to Live" --

Keri: Glad to hear you're not rewriting your paper. It's not worth it to have to deal with you.

Antonio: I don't have to deal with Keri Reynolds anymore.

Bo: Did you have an affair or not?

Gabrielle: Yes.

Max: No.

Jen: I sometimes wish that we could just erase the past and not have to think about the future.

Blair: Are you asking me to marry you?


Nora: I want you guys to go off -- I just know you'll go off and have a wonderful time. As a matter of fact, I insist on it. I called ahead, made arrangements at Rodi's, and the evening is on me.

Keri: Oh, Nora, you didn't have to do that.

Nora: Well, what fun would it have been if I had to?

Antonio: Thanks.

Nora: Oh, no, not necessary. Are you kidding? You're both very good friends of mine, and you have so many things that are similar about you in so many ways. I just thought, what two people would enjoy meeting each other more than Keri Reynolds and Antonio Vega? Oh, boy.

Keri and Antonio: What?

Nora: This was a mistake, wasn't it?


Al: Are you ok?

Jen: Don't stop. What's wrong? You don't want to do this?

Al: No, I do. I've wanted to for a long time. I just -- I want you to want it as much as I do. Do you?


Gabrielle: I have to know, Max. Are you going to tell the police the truth?

Max: Whose truth, Gabrielle? Yours? Mine?

Gabrielle: Asa's would come in handy right about now. What the hell happened to him?

Max: Good question. You want to tell me?


Bo: Renee, we'll find out what happened to Pa.

Renee: Please just don't take anything for granted, Bo. I mean, that's the least that we can do for him now.

Bo: We will find out everything. Now, you have my word.

Renee: This has to be hard for you. I mean, it's not just any case. You're investigating the death of your own father.

Bo: Yeah, but we'll treat it like every case here. We'll -- we'll give it 100% effort, and I'll give it everything I've got.

Renee: You're a great tribute to your father, Bo, that he raised a son with such a sense of honor. Oh. Oh -- could I be the one to tell Ben?

Bo: Ben? Yeah, of course.

Renee: Yes. They weren't close, but he has to know.

Bo: Yes.

Renee: I think it's best that if I'm the one to tell him, it'll be easier for him. Don't you agree?

Bo: You're right. You should tell him.

Renee: Thank you.

Bo: All right. I'm going to go talk to Gabrielle. She may be the last person that saw Pa alive.

Renee: Bo, before you go and talk to the present Mrs. Buchanan, I think there's something that you need to know about that woman.


Blair: Are you?

Todd: Am I what?

Blair: Are you asking me to marry you?

Todd: Do you hear me asking?

Blair: Todd, I know that declaring your feelings isn't your favorite thing to do.

Todd: What feelings?

Blair: You're afraid of being hurt. I mean, who isn't? But, you know, sometimes you have to go out and take a chance and say what's in your heart. Otherwise the chance just maybe passes you by.

Todd: Don't get all philosophical on me.

Blair: Todd, you had a wedding ring hand-painted on my finger in the family portrait. I think that's a very romantic, sweet gesture.

Todd: Yeah? You like that?

Blair: But it's not enough. Come on, Todd, you've come this far. Why don't you take the next step? Just tell me -- is this a marriage proposal?

Starr: I wish I had been in Mexico.

Blair: You wanted to see the baby?

Starr: He was my brother, my whole brother.

Blair: I know, sweetie. I know that. But you know what? Your -- your daddy doesn't.

Starr: I wonder what kind of treats daddy would give me if I told him.

Blair: What are you doing?

Todd: Pick one.

Blair: Pick what?

Todd: One future or the other.

Blair: Come on. What if I pick the wrong one, Todd?

Todd: You're the one who just said that you got to take chances, right? So pick one.

Blair: Well -- look, I'm nervous as it is here. I don't want --

Todd: Blair -- pick one.

Blair: What? Ok.


Jen: Please, Al, don't ask me what I want.

Al: Because you want Cristian?

Jen: No. No, I don't want Cristian. But I did, and you saw what that did to me.

Al: I know it hurt you.

Jen: So much. So what I want doesn't matter anymore. I do want you, Al. So much.

Jen: I want you.


Keri: Everything is fine, Nora. I'm sorry I was acting weird. I just -- I just thought for a moment that Antonio was someone I'd met before.

Nora: From the look on your face, you'd think he was wanted in the 50 states.

Keri: It doesn't matter. I was mistaken. I don't believe we've met.

Antonio: No, no, we haven't.

Keri: Hi, it's very nice to meet you.

Antonio: Yeah. Yeah, you, too. You know, it's just that sometimes blind dates -- they don't live up to the hype. But this one definitely does.

Nora: Oh, and she's no cool cat, either. This one is as beautiful on the inside as she is out.

Keri: Pardon me while I die of embarrassment.

Nora: Ok, I won't say any more. Go. Get out. Have a good time. Enjoy.

Antonio: Thanks again.

Nora: Bye, guys. Ain't love wonderful?

Keri: Thank you for backing me up.

Antonio: Well, we didn't want to disappoint Nora.

Keri: I feel so bad about this. I mean, Nora set this date up because I've been complaining about the kind of guys I've been meeting.

Antonio: Like me.

Keri: No, no, I didn't mean -- ugh, I didn't think I could make things any worse, and I just did.

Antonio: I'll live.

Keri: You know, if you just want to go home --

Antonio: What are you going to do? You live here.

Keri: I'll go to the mall or go see a movie or go do some work at the office.

Antonio: And what happens when Nora checks up on us?

Keri: Would she do that?

Antonio: What do you think?

Keri: Ok, ok. I guess we could grin and bear it for a couple of hours.

Antonio: We could grin anyway.


Gabrielle: I have no idea what happened to Asa. I wish I did because then it would save us a lot of trouble. We wouldn't have to come up with a plausible story.

Max: That is the worst thing we could do right now. We just stick to the facts, ok? We heard a moan, a crash, found Asa dead on the floor -- short, simple, and true.

Gabrielle: All right, but do you think that's going to satisfy Bo's curiosity? Take it from me -- police get very pesky about details when there is a corpse involved.

Max: Well, we can only give the police the details we have, right? If they're not happy with that, well, it's not our fault. I mean, it's not like we're hiding anything from them, are we?


Renee: It's no secret, Bo, that marriage was not a love match.

Bo: Well, according to Gabrielle, it was. Do you have any reason to believe otherwise? Renee, if you know something, I have to know. This isn't the time for discretion, not for Gabrielle's sake.

Renee: Do you think that I'm keeping my mouth shut for that gold-digging witch?

Bo: Well, if not her, then who?

Renee: Who else?

Bo: Pa.

Renee: Yes. It's just telling tales on Asa -- now that he's gone, it makes me ill. It's like desecrating his grave.

Bo: Yeah, but if there was something between Gabrielle and Pa --

Renée: The only thing I know is that once Asa married that high-tone tramp, it was the stupidest thing that he ever did. And look what she's done to him.

Bo: What has she done, though, Renée? Tell me.


Gabrielle: I don't know, Max. Do we have something to hide?

Max: Why ask me?

Gabrielle: Well, who else am I going to ask? I mean, we were together when Asa collapsed. That's true. But just before that, I don't know where you were or what you did.

Max: And I don't know what you did, do I?


Renee: Asa came by the palace one day. He seemed to think that Gabrielle had spent the night before there.

Bo: She'd left the mansion?

Renee: Apparently. But she did not come to my hotel. She was not registered.

Bo: You know where she went?

Renee: No. Nor did Asa.

Bo: How did Pa seem?

Renee: Embarrassed. Upset. Hurt. He led me to believe that there was trouble in paradise.

Bo: I see. Anything else? Renee, you told me that you didn't want to say anything bad about Pa. So far you haven't, so that means there's something else.

Renee: I don't know how I can do this.

Bo: Just do it, all right? Renee, he's gone. You don't have to worry about his feelings now.

Renee: I went to the mansion one night, and Asa was acting drunk, roaring drunk.

Bo: He was "acting"?

Renee: I caught him faking it for the benefit of Max and Gabrielle. It was obvious that he did not trust them.

Bo: Was this because of the affair or was it something else?

Renee: I don't know. We fought. I left. But I can tell you this -- good luck getting anything out of Gabrielle because, in my book, that woman is despicable.


Gabrielle: Well, I will tell you exactly what I was doing before we were together.

Max: No, no -- not one word. Uh-uh, uh-uh. Not one, understand?

Gabrielle: As a matter of fact, I don't.

Max: I don't need to know anything outside of what we've already told the police. I don't want to. Got it?


Al: Wow. So incredible. You're so incredible. I don't mean just making love. It's just right now I feel so close to you. Feels so familiar. Like it's not the first time, you know? Like it's the hundredth, the thousandth -- I don't know. What's the matter? You ok?

Jen: Yeah, I'm fine.

Al: You just look like you got kind of sad all of a sudden. You're thinking about Cristian, aren't you?

Jen: It's kind of hard not to. Hasn't been that long ago.

Al: I get that. I know what it's like to be hung up on someone you can't have.

Jen: It's not really fair to you.

Al: I don't care, really. This meant a lot to me. You mean a lot to me. I don't want you to have to be anybody you're not with me or feel anything you don't want to feel. I just want you to be you. That's who I fell for, Jen. That's who I want.


[Salsa music plays]

Antonio: So, do you -- do you know how to salsa?

Keri: Sure. You just put it in a big bowl and scoop it up with corn chips. It was a joke. My way of saying no. Uh -- can we sit down?

Antonio: Right.

Keri: Thank you.

Antonio: You're welcome. So, I didn't -- I didn't know you knew Nora.

Keri: Yes. We go back a long way.

Antonio: She's a terrific lady.

Keri: So, how do you know Nora?

Antonio: Through Bo. And she was my -- my lawyer when I was on trial.

Keri: You were on trial?

Antonio: Yeah.

Keri: For what?

Antonio: Murder.

Keri: Oh. Well, you're here, so Nora got you off, huh?

Antonio: Well, being innocent was a big help.

Keri: Oh, of course. I'm -- oh, wow, this is really going badly.

Antonio: I've -- I've been on worse.

Keri: Really? Name one.

Antonio: Ok, you got me.

Keri: You might not believe it, but some people actually consider me fun to be with.

Antonio: I -- no, I do believe it.

Keri: You do?

Antonio: Yeah. I'm actually not so bad myself. I just think that we maybe, you know, get our wires crossed.

Keri: Oh, maybe we're just too different?

Antonio: Maybe we should find out if we have anything in common. Like -- I mean, like, for instance, what do you like and, you know, what do you hate?

Keri: Ah -- I love animals, poetry, onion rings. And I hate people who don't take responsibility for what they've done.

Antonio: Oh. Are you referring to someone in particular?

Keri: No. Don't worry, you're safe -- so far.

Antonio: Whew.

Keri: What about you?

Antonio: I -- I love to cook. I love to read. I love baseball. And I love to dance.

Keri: And you hate?

Antonio: I hate anyone who picks on anyone else. Oh, and I hate -- I hate people who talk on their cell phones in public. It drives me absolutely --

[Phone rings]

Antonio: See? See what I'm talking about? Now, watch. Some jackass is going to pull out his cell phone and start talking in public as if no one else was in the room.


Keri: Hello. Hi. Could you hold on a second? F.Y.I. -- I don't usually drag my cell phone everywhere I go, but it's the Dean. I should take it.

Antonio: Yeah.


Blair: Todd, that is the most beautiful ring I have -- I've ever seen. I think it's even prettier than the last one.

Todd: Is that a yes?

Blair: "A yes?"

Todd: Question, Blair -- come on, Blair --

Blair: Well -- I don't know.

Todd: What do you mean, you don't know?

Blair: I -- I don't -- know. I mean, look. Don't think that I'm not saying yes right away because of you or anything. It's me.

Todd: Well, you're not asking you to marry you. I am.

Blair: Todd, it's -- it's just the timing and everything. I mean, do -- well, why do I have to give you an answer right now?

Todd: No, no, no. No hurry, really. Take your time. I mean, you can answer me any time in the next 60 seconds.

Blair: Todd, we just got back from Mexico and I just lost my baby.

Todd: Ok, all right. Then you know what? Enough about the baby. The baby's gone. The baby's not coming back. But life goes on.

Blair: And I've accepted that. But have you?

Todd: What are you talking about?

Blair: Well, I'm talking about here you are asking me to marry you right after my son dies, and I just think -- well, I can't help but wonder if maybe you feel that you owe me something.

Todd: You're nuts.

Blair: Come on, Todd, you delivered the little boy and he died and -- maybe -- I don't know. Maybe you feel responsible.

Todd: Get rid of it.

Paloma: Senor --

Todd: You heard me. Just get rid of it. Why would I feel bad about the kid?

Blair: You shouldn't. I'm just saying that sometimes -- well, guilt doesn't always make sense.

Todd: You're the one who's not making any sense, Blair. Look, do you want it or not? I mean, it's not like I can bring it back, you know, because the guy I bought it from -- he probably packed up his cardboard box, moved to another corner by now. You want it?

Blair: I --

Starr: Don't do it, Mommy!

Blair: What -- what is it, Sweetheart?

Todd: Yeah, why can't I marry your mother? You know what? You can come this time, and I'll say, "I do" instead of calling the cops.

Starr: How do I know that? You even messed up this part!

Todd: Well, your mother doesn't seem to be minding.

Starr: You gave her the ring really mean. You didn't even do the knee thing!

Todd: Who are you, Steven Spielberg?

Starr: Don't you know anything about kissy stuff?

Blair: Well -- ahem -- I think she might have a point there.

Todd: No, I -- I don't. I don't know anything about kissy stuff.

Starr: Then you can't marry Mommy.

Blair: And I think she means that.

Todd: Ok, you're -- you're grounded until you're, like, 52. Now, get out of the way.

Todd: Blair?

Starr: Yeah?

Todd: I love you and I want to get married. So, what do you say?

Starr: That stunk even worse. Do it again.


[Salsa music plays]

Antonio: Hey, Whitney, what's up?

Whitney: I hope you are for a little dancing.

Antonio: Oh, no, no, no, I can't.

Whitney: Oh, come on. My partner punked out on me for the salsa contest. He said he had a cold, but I think he lost his nerve.

Antonio: I'm here with somebody else, Whitney.

Whitney: Who? The invisible woman?

Keri: No. Me.

Antonio: Uh -- Keri, Whitney was just asking --

Keri: It's ok. I heard and saw it all.

Antonio: So -- so, you see, Whitney, I can't.

Keri: Go ahead and dance with her if you want to. I'll be fine.

Whitney: Really? You heard the lady. Come on, we got to practice. I got to get the cop out of your system.

Antonio: Don't I get a say in this?

Whitney: Not a word, baby.

Whitney: All right, forget it. I'll drop out of the contest.

Antonio: Huh?

Whitney: Go after her, Antonio. When I dance with a man, I expect him to concentrate on the music -- and me.

Antonio: Thanks.

Keri: Hi, yes. Could you please send a taxi to --

Antonio: Whitney's a friend of mine. She's -- she's a friend of a friend. We've known each other for years. She acts like that with all the guys. Look, why don't you come back inside and dance with me?

Keri: No, thank you.

Antonio: Why? Because you can't?

Keri: I can. I just don't like making a fool of myself, and I don't know how to salsa.

[Slow music plays]

Antonio: That's not salsa. Come on, why don't we give it a try, and we can stop the second you feel uncomfortable.

Keri: I'm uncomfortable.

Antonio: You haven't even tried yet. All you have to do is take your hands right here. Put up here. See? It's easy.


Bo: Max and Gabrielle, thanks for coming by.

Max: I don't know what more we can tell you. We've already shared everything we know with you, including a very private matter that had nothing to do with this investigation.

Bo: Your little indiscretion?

Max: That's right. So can we bring this inquisition to an end?

Bo: This isn't about official business.

Gabrielle: Really? Then what's it about?

Bo: I won't have Pa's autopsy report until tomorrow, but I don't think there are going to be any surprises. So I thought that this might be my last chance to -- to talk to you about this. Was Pa happy the last time you saw him?

Gabrielle: He was -- yes. Yes, I would describe him as happy.

Bo: Really? Because you said that you had just told him about this slip-up with Max. Did he seem like he was still upset about that?

Gabrielle: No. No, as a matter of fact, he was very sweet to me the afternoon of his death. We had -- we had a lovely chat.

Bo: About what?

Gabrielle: Life, ironically. Jessica had stopped by, and it made us realize what was really important -- family, friends, things like that. You know, as a matter of fact, we held hands, and he told me that he loved me.

Asa: We had a business arrangement. You reneged, and you're going to end up with exactly nothing.

Bo: Thanks, Gabrielle. Now, you were with Gabrielle when Pa had his heart attack?

Max: That's right.

Bo: What did the two of you have to talk about? I mean, if you don't mind me asking.

Max: No, not at all, actually. I -- I think it might give you a little comfort to know. Gabrielle wanted to talk to me about us. She told me she loved Asa and that what we had done -- well, there's just no way we could ever do that again. We're going to stop him before he stops me. That's it.

Gabrielle: So, Bo?

Bo: Yes?

Gabrielle: So, do you still think that we have something to hide?

Bo: No. No. I believe that my father was a giant of a man, and I believe that you two aren't worth the dirt that he walked on. And when you are where he is now, I don't think that anybody will really care. They may not even notice. But I don't believe that there's any reason to think that you're withholding information about his death, so I'd like to thank you for coming by.

Bo: Yeah, I want Needleman and Manfredi to stake out my father's house. And if Holden spends the night there with Mrs. Buchanan, I want to know about it.


Al: Wow.

Jen: You keep saying that.

Al: Well, I keep feeling it. Are you cold?

Jen: Yeah, a little.

Al: Yeah, it cools off at this time of year up here. Should probably get back to our cars. Come on, get you warm.

Jen: Wait. Can I say something?

Al: Yeah, anything.

Jen: I kind of felt like my life was over after --

Al: I know what that feels like. I've had some bad breaks, too.

Jen: You have it worse. A life really is over.

Al: Yeah, but you got me through that. If I can do that for you, then that makes me happy.

Jen: You did. You showed me that the end of Cristian isn't the end of the world or me. I'll never forget you for that.

Al: Jen, that doesn't really sound like a "catch you later." That sounds more like a goodbye.


Nora: Well, this is a nice surprise. If I knew you were coming, I would've laid out the junk food.

Bo: Hello, Nora.

Nora: Actually, it's Halloween. What am I talking about? I did lay out the junk food. Candy corn?

Bo: No, thanks. I think I'll pass.

Nora: Oh, my word. Ladies and gentlemen, mark this moment down in history -- he has refused candy corns.  Ah. How about wax teeth, though? Bo, what's wrong?

Bo: I've got some bad news about Pa.

Nora: Oh, no. Is it his heart again?

Bo: Yeah, I'm afraid so.

Nora: Oh, dear. I mean, how is he? Where is he? Can -- can he have visitors?

Bo: This time was fatal.

Nora: God.

Bo: You ok?

Nora: Oh, this is ridiculous. You're the one that needs comforting.

Bo: You were close to him, too. He loved you -- especially when you stood up to him.

Nora: I'm so sorry. I am so sorry for you, for Clint, for Renée, Viki -- and me. He could drive me right around the bend, but I loved that old man. But nobody loved him more than you did, and he didn't make it easy.

Bo: Hmm. No. He's disinherited me so many times in my life, I've lost count. I just wish he was still here so he could write me out of his will one more time.

Nora: Oh, Bo, so do I. So do I.


Gabrielle: This place is still filled with his energy. Thank God you'll be with me tonight.

Max: I don't think that'll be a good idea, Gabrielle.

Gabrielle: Why not?

Max: We don't want to give Bo any more suspicions than he has already, do we?

Gabrielle: But he said he doesn't have them anymore.

Max: Oh, and you're buying that?

Gabrielle: Well, you have a point there. But, Max, you do live here.

Max: I still do not think it would be a good idea. Al's going to be here anyway, isn't he?

Gabrielle: Certainly hope so. With the servants off, I'll be in this place all alone.

Max: I'll tell you what -- I'll find him, make sure he comes home. If you need me, I'll be at the palace, although I don't think we should be in contact.

Gabrielle: You're not going yet, are you?

Max: It's just a house. You'll be fine.

Gabrielle: Hey, Max?

Max: Yes?

Gabrielle: About what happened to Asa --

Max: I don't think we should say any more about that. He died of a heart attack, ok?

Gabrielle: Heart attack. Ok.

Max: Good.


Todd: Ok, Blair, I would consider it a personal honor if you would consider being the next Mrs. Todd Manning again.

Blair: Todd.

Todd: Is that a yes? Look, Starr, this is as good as it's going to get.

Starr: That sounded so fakey.

Todd: All right. But this is the last time because my knees are killing me. All right. Blair, nobody likes me. And when I'm not with you I can really -- I can see their point. But when I am with you, I don't really care what anybody thinks. And I'm willing to put up with you for as long as you'll put up with me. And that -- that goes into forever or even longer. And if that's not love, then I don't know what is.

Todd: I promise you that if you marry me that you'll never regret it. Ok, that's not true. I mean, you'll probably regret it just about every day of your life, but -- but I promise you that I won't regret it. So, what do you say? We got a deal?

[Music plays]


Jen: I'm sorry, Al. No, I didn't mean anything by that.

Al: So, you weren't just letting me down easy?

Jen: No, not at all.

Al: So, what are you doing tomorrow?

Jen: I don't know.

Al: Ok, what are you doing this week?

Jen: I don't know. I used to plan everything, but now I can't even see to the next day or the next hour. The moment is pretty much all I can deal with.

Al: That's fine with me as long as we can do it together.

Jen: Thanks for tonight.


Nora: What is it you're not telling me about Asa's death?

Bo: I won't have anything to tell until I get his autopsy report tomorrow.

Nora: Hey -- I've been looking into that face of yours for years now, and I know when I see shock or grief and I know when I see something darker, like anger or suspicion.

Bo: I'm telling you --

Nora: I know what you're telling me, and I know you're trying not to. You think there's more to Asa's death than just a heart attack, don't you?

Ben: Birth mother's name, address, and photo.

Seth: I was hoping I'd run into you.  Jessica: I was hoping you wouldn't.
