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

Troy: We want someone, we go for it.

Al: I swear he will never know.

Jen: Oh, yes, he will because I'm going to tell him.

Keri: I'd really like us to go out and have dinner together.

R.J.: You sure?

Todd: What?

Starr: Mommy told me Cassie took the baby.

Todd: Well, that's because she did.

Starr: How could you let that happen?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Todd: All right, all right. Shh, shh, shh. I'm going to get you out of here, get you home where you belong. Because you are my son.

Todd: Uh -- so, how long you been standing there?

Cassie: Long enough.

Todd: Long enough for what?

Cassie: Long enough to have heard every word you said.

-----------------------------------------------

Cristian: Your mom's laying some kind of trip on you again, isn't she?

Jen: No, not this time.

Cristian: Jen, something is going on.

Jen: Just what my mom said. That's it.

Cristian: So the secret was just about what you're getting me for Christmas?

Jen: Something from her gallery. That's it.

Cristian: I got to tell you, Jen, you're scaring me.

Jen: What do you mean?

Cristian: Well, we just moved in together and now you have this secret with your mom. We shouldn't have any secrets.

Jen: Well, Christmas presents don't count, do they?

Cristian: And no way do I believe that she's trying to accept that you're with me now.

Jen: Well, it wasn't easy for her to find out that Iím moving in with you. You have to at least give her credit for trying to be nice.

Cristian: Yeah. Maybe. But you know she's not happy about this. No one changes that quickly.

Jen: Maybe not.

Cristian: So what did she say, what did she do? Is she trying to convince you that I slept with another girl?

Jen: No.

Cristian: Then what is it?

Lindsay: I want you to be happy.

Jen: But how can I be, because I have to tell Cristian about Al, and if I do I'll lose him.

Lindsay: Well, unfortunately, at this point I think that's probably true.

Jen: Mom!

Lindsay: Well, maybe if you had told him before you moved in, but now it's too late. It's just gone too far.

Cristian: So what's going on? What did she say, what did she do? There's something you're not telling me, Jen.

Jen: You're right. There is.

-----------------------------------------------

Lindsay: Wow.

Troy: I guess I should apologize for being so forward.

Lindsay: Wow.

Troy: But I'm not going to.

Lindsay: You're not?

Troy: Uh-uh. Nope. I've been wanting to kiss you like that for days.

Lindsay: You have?

Troy: Oh, yeah. Ever since we started working on that fundraiser together. In fact, it was all I could do to restrain myself this long.

Lindsay: Restrain yourself?

Troy: That's right. Although, I don't think Iím going to be able to restrain myself anymore.

Lindsay: Why bother?

-----------------------------------------------

Nora: I love you, Sam.

Sam: What did you say?

Nora: What?

Sam: Just now. Did you say something?

Nora: When?

Sam: Just now. I thought I heard you say something.

Nora: Oh, no.

Sam: No?

Nora: No.

Sam: Oh, I'm hallucinating. It's started. I warned you. I told you, assembling bicycles just -- it drives me nuts.

Nora: Ok. I'm sorry. I promise, the next bicycle I buy, it'll be preassembled.

Sam: Yeah, well, hearing voices is only the first step. It's quickly followed by the second step, which is loud cursing, and then finally it ends up with the throwing of miscellaneous bicycle parts.

Nora: Ok.

Sam: Consider yourself warned.

Nora: I'm warned. I got it.

Sam: I just didn't think Iíd get to this phase so quickly.

Nora: Oh, you didn't, you didn't.

Sam: I didn't what?

Nora: You didn't hallucinate. I did say something.

Sam: Oh, what a relief. So?

Nora: So.

Sam: What was it?

-----------------------------------------------

Starr: Come on, Mom, hurry up!

Blair: I told you that I would drive you over here so you could say good-bye to the baby, see it one more time, bring him his presents, but I also told you that I was not going inside.

Starr: But, Mommy, they're really heavy. I can't even carry some of them.

Blair: Well, how did you get them over to our house to begin with?

Starr: I shopped online. They deliver.

Blair: Well, ok.

Starr: What are you doing?

Blair: Starr, I told you I'm not going inside. Ring the doorbell; Cassie will help you carry them in. I'm going to wait for you out in the car.

Starr: No, but, Mommy, you have to bring presents in all together.

Blair: Why?

Starr: Because that's just how presents work.

Blair: Oh, you are being so silly.

Starr: No!

Blair: Ow, Starr! What?

Starr: You can't go!

Blair: I don't want to go in there.

Starr: Yes, you do.

Blair: No, I donít.

Starr: Yeah, you do. You want to see the baby just as much as I do.

-----------------------------------------------

Todd: I didn't say anything.

Cassie: Oh, no.

Todd: No. Hey, you heard me say something, then you'd better get yourself back to that loony bin in Switzerland because you're hearing voices.

Cassie: No, Todd, the voice I heard was very real.

Todd: Yeah, all crazy people say that.

Cassie: And it was yours, telling that little baby that he was your son.

Todd: Oh, no, no, no, that was -- I was singing to it the old childhood refrain, you know -- The sun's going to come up out of the sky in the morningÖ

Cassie: Todd, I'm not stupid and I'm not crazy. The voice I heard was yours. I know exactly what's going on around here.

-----------------------------------------------

Starr: Why don't you just admit it? You want to see the baby, too.

Blair: No, I donít. And if you don't stop all this nonsense, we're both going to drive home and you're not going to see the baby, either, ok?

-----------------------------------------------

Todd: All right, what do you think's going on?

Cassie: Do I really have to say it?

Todd: It would appear so.

Cassie: Todd, when I lost William, I was -- I was pretty devastated. And so was Andrew. And when I found River abandoned in the church creche, I thought he was my own. I thought God had given me back my baby. And I get the sense that this is what you're feeling right now. You're hoping that this little boy is your baby.

Todd: Well, he could be. I mean, you made River yours.

Cassie: Not until Andrew and I had mourned William, not until we were ready to move on.

Todd: Yeah, well, you know, I mean, I just -- I feel like Iím ready to move on.

Cassie: Yeah, Todd, you might be, but Blair certainly isnít. That's why you've got to let this go, got to let this baby go. Look, I know you love Blair. I know you're going to do the right thing for her, but you got to see what having this baby is doing to her. She can't handle being around someone else's child.

Starr: That's not true.

Todd: Starr.

Cassie: What are you doing here?

Starr: I came with my mom. She's right outside and she's dying to see the baby.

Todd: She is?

Cassie: Come here. Come here, Sweetheart.

Starr: Yeah. She's just too darn stubborn to admit it.

Todd: Blair?

Blair: Todd? What are you doing here?

Todd: Well, I could ask you the same question.

-----------------------------------------------

R.J.: Are you sure you want to have dinner with me?

Keri: Yeah, yeah, I do.

R.J.: Oh. Well, why the sudden 180?

Keri: Seeing you with those kids, with that little girl, made me think maybe there's more to my father than I gave him credit for.

R.J.: Well, that is what Iíve been trying to tell you.

Keri: I know, and I think it's time I started listening and time I got to know my father.

R.J.: I want that, too.

Keri: Good.

Girl: Excuse me, but you're not the only person who needs to talk to Santaís helper tonight.

Keri: Oh, I'm sorry.

Girl: Does that mean you're done?

Keri: He's all yours. I'll be over here.

R.J.: Ok. Hi. Let's see what we got in the bag here.

-----------------------------------------------

Renee: Excuse me. Are you a friend of Noraís?

Keri: Yes, Iím Keri Reynolds.

Renee: Oh, Renee Divine.

Keri: Hi.

Renee: Hi.

Keri: Did you come to give Santa your wish list?

Renee: Oh, no, I own The Palace Restaurant and Hotel. I donated the refreshments. I just wanted to make sure that everything turned out ok.

Keri: Oh, The Palace. I've been there. It's a beautiful restaurant.

Renee: Oh, the food was good, I hope.

Keri: I just had drinks, but everyone tells me that it is the place to go.

Renee: Good. Well, I'll tell you what -- whenever you're in the mood, you just give me a call and I'll make sure you have the best table in the joint and you can make up your own mind.

Keri: Well, you know, actually I need a good restaurant tonight if it's not too late.

Renee: Well, I'll call my maitre d'.

Keri: Wow, service.

Renee: Your wish is my command. A table for --

Keri: Two, please.

Renee: Two.

R.J.: Well, that was the last one of them. Santa's workshop is officially closed and we can go.

Renee: Excuse me; is this your dinner companion?

Keri: Yes, he is.

Renee: I'm afraid we're totally booked.

-----------------------------------------------

Nora: You have to keep working.

Sam: No, I can listen and work at the same time. It's no problem.

Nora: Yeah, but can you listen and count?

Sam: I finished counting. All the screws are right down here. I am now assembling. So --

Nora: Ok.

Sam: What's up?

Nora: Matthew's going to be so thrilled with this bicycle. I mean, it's all he's talked about for months.

Sam: Really? Ow! Ow, ow.

Nora: Ooh, are you ok? Are you all right?

Sam: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I'll be fine. But you'd better start talking, and fast. The cursing phase is about to give way to the throwing of miscellaneous bicycle parts phase.

Nora: All I wanted to say was --

Sam: Wait, shh, shh! Is that Matthew? Quick --

Nora: Young man, what are you doing out of bed?

Matthew: I thought I heard Santa.

Sam: Santa? No, it's way too early for Santa.

Nora: Besides, he only gives presents to boys who are sleeping.

Sam: So be a good boy and go back to bed.

Matthew: Will you carry me?

Sam: Will -- will I carry him?

Nora: Ahem.

Sam: Ok. Up we go! Ok.

Matthew: What's that?

Sam: What's what?

[Sam gasps]

-----------------------------------------------

Cristian: So what did your mom do to upset you?

Jen: It's nothing. Well, she's dating Troy MacIver. I can't believe she's being that stupid.

Cristian: Jen, come on, your mom can take care of herself.

Jen: Don't you get it? It's my fault. My dad hates her, Will and Aunt Lanie are gone, and when I turned my back on her she didn't have anybody left. That's why she's mixed up with this guy she barely knows.

Cristian: But you got mixed up with a guy you barely knew.

Jen: You're not a creep.

Cristian: And that reminds me -- I got to go to St. Jude's and light some candles.

Jen: What are you talking about?

Cristian: Well, I mean, I got to thank all those saints for bringing me such an incredible girlfriend. No, Jen, I mean it, man. I mean, after everything that your mom put you through, you're still worried about her. You should be up for sainthood.

Jen: No, I shouldnít.

Cristian: Where you going?

Jen: To drop these off at Dad and Noraís and Matthewís.

Cristian: Tonight?

Jen: Well, I'm spending Christmas with you and your family, right?

Cristian: Ok. Do you want me to come with you?

Jen: No, I'll be fine.

Cristian: Ok. Well, I'll use this time to finish wrapping your presents.

Jen: Great. I'll see you later.

Cristian: Bye.

-----------------------------------------------

[Knock on door]

Cristian: Hey.

Al: I'm sorry to bother you. We have to talk about Jen.

-----------------------------------------------

Lindsay: I can't believe Iím doing this.

Troy: Why, because it's so soon?

Lindsay: Partly.

Troy: And partly because you still think I'm like Colin.

Lindsay: Hmm, no, I told you; I've always been attracted to bad boys.

Troy: Hmm. Well, that's good because I have always been attracted to bad girls.

Lindsay: That's not true. Nora's not a bad girl.

Troy: No, but maybe that's why I lost interest so quickly. Maybe I need something a little bit more exciting.

Lindsay: Is that what you think you're going to get with me?

Troy: I think that you and I have both enjoyed some wild times.

Lindsay: Maybe once or twice. Why would you say that?

Troy: Well, because any woman who'd try and smother me with a pillow isn't afraid to break a few rules. And I admire that.

Lindsay: You admire that I almost tried to kill you?

Troy: I --

Lindsay: Not that Iím admitting to it.

Troy: I admire that you like to live dangerously.

Lindsay: So do you.

Troy: Yes. So do I.

Lindsay: What is it that you really want?

Troy: Guess.

-----------------------------------------------

Matthew: What is it, what is it?

Sam: Stop squirming, will you?

Matthew: Is it a horn?

Sam: Yes, a horn. Um -- yes, it's a horn. Mm-hmm. It's a horn. It's a -- a Santa -- a Santa horn.

Matthew: What's it for?

Sam: Well, I -- I -- did you -- oh, you grabbed it.

Nora: Yes, here's your horn.

Sam: Yes, well, see, I was about to show you what this is for. It's to signal Santa. You see what Iím going to do is Iím going to open a window like this when it's time for Santa to come and I'm going to stick the horn out the window and I'm going to go --

[Horn honks]

Sam: Like that and I'm going to pop my head out and Iím going to go, "hey, Santa, Santa, over here! Don't forget Matthew! He's been such a good little boy all year long and he deserves everything that he wants!"

Matthew: Especially the bicycle.

Sam: Especially the bicycle, yeah.

Matthew: Let me try.

Sam: Ok.

[Horn honks]

Matthew: Santa, over here! Don't forget Mommy!

Nora: Oh, what about Daddy?

Sam: Well, Daddy -- he has everything he wants.

[Doorbell rings]

Sam: Oh, there's the door. Why don't you get the door and I'll put our little adventurer to bed -- back to bed, ok?

[Horn honks]

Nora: Hey, Jen! Come on in! Merry Christmas!

Jen: Hey, hope I'm not too late.

Nora: No, no, no, Sam is upstairs putting Matthew to bed again.

Jen: Wow, what a beautiful tree.

Nora: Oh, thank you. I'd like to take credit for it, but I canít. Keri and Antonio did it all.

Jen: Well, whoever decorated it, I have things to go under it.

Nora: Oh, wow. Does that mean we're not going to see you at Christmas?

Jen: Actually, I'm spending Christmas with Cristian's family.

Nora: Yeah, I'm glad you guys are back together.

Jen: Me, too. Nothing is ever going to come between us again.

-----------------------------------------------

Cristian: We've already said everything we have to say about Jen.

Al: No, we haven't, not everything.

Cristian: What is that supposed to mean?

Al: Do you remember you asked me about making a move on Jen?

Cristian: When I was in New York?

Al: And I said that would've been crazy because she was only interested in you.

Cristian: Yeah, what of it?

Al: Well, it's not exactly true.

-----------------------------------------------

Starr: Ok, here's another present. Hey, you want to open it together?

Cassie: Starr, careful, honey, he's just a little baby.

Starr: So are you going to keep him?

Cassie: Yeah. Just for a little while.

Starr: I hope he comes back to my house. My Daddy really loves him.

Cassie: Oh, honey, your daddy would love any little baby boy right now because it would remind him of the baby he and your mommy lost.

Starr: No, that's not true. My daddy loves this baby in particular.

Cassie: Well, why do you say that?

Starr: Because.

Cassie: Because why?

Starr: Well, it kind of reminds him of our baby.

Blair: Starr insisted that I drive her over here so she could say good-bye to the baby, see him one last time. She even wanted me to go in, but I couldn't. So that's why I'm here. What about you? You said you were going off to rent your favorite movie, "Evil Dead" whatever.

Todd: Right. Yeah, well, somebody got there before me.

Blair: Oh.

Todd: And then Nellie called and I remembered that I had promised her that I would check on her kid for her.

Blair: Nellie, the birth mother?

Todd: Yeah.

Blair: Well, since when do you keep any promises, Todd?

Todd: Well, I keep promises -- sometimes.

Blair: Ok, you know what? I want to know the truth here. Is -- is there something more going on here that maybe I should know about? Do you have some connection to this baby, Todd?

Todd: Aw, come on, Blair, I can't do something nice without having some dark ulterior motive?

Blair: Todd, how did you find this Nellie and her baby?

Todd: I already explained that to you.

Blair: Well, you didn't quite make it clear enough to me the first time.

Todd: Look, you really bummed out about losing the baby, so I went and found an unwed mother and got you a new baby.

Blair: How and where?

Todd: What difference does it make?

Blair: Well, it could potentially make a big difference, Todd.

Todd: No, the only thing that would make a difference is if you would find a way to take this baby and let it be a part of your life.

Blair: Why are we going back to that?

Todd: Look, are you really sure? You know what? Don't even answer that. Think about this, will you? Think about it from Starrís point of view, what she wants. She got this kid a whole bunch of presents, right, and she said that if we kept the baby, that she didn't want anything for Christmas. Now, from Starr that's huge.

Blair: Just stop, please.

Todd: And you've always told me that we have to put Starr first.

Starr: What do you think you're doing?

-----------------------------------------------

Keri: I don't understand. A minute ago you said there'd be no problem getting me a table, and now suddenly you're booked?

Renee: Excuse us. Keri, you're new in town. You don't know everything there is to know about Llanview, so let me give you some advice -- stay away from R.J. Gannon.

Keri: I appreciate your concern, but I don't think you understand. I grew up in Chicago with Rachel Gannon and I --

Renee: She's a lovely girl, and a lot of that is due to her father.

Keri: Is that a fact?

Renee: Yes. Hank is an upstanding member of this community. His brother, R.J., on the other hand is --

Keri: Is an ex-con.

Renee: He's a criminal, he's a loan shark, a thief, he's an extortionist, he's --

Keri: He's my father.

-----------------------------------------------

Nora: Listen, if you and Cristian find that you have a few minutes, we'd love to see you. Come on by.

Sam: Yeah, we're going to be home all day.

Jen: Thank you for being cool with this. Have you heard from Will?

Sam: Yeah, yeah, as a matter of fact he called last night worried that his presents weren't going to arrive on time.

Jen: They got here.

Sam: I know. That's what I told him.

Nora: Speaking of presents, it's a little something for you for Christmas. Go ahead and open it.

Jen: Thank you. You know, I'm not a little kid anymore. I can wait till Christmas.

Nora: Ok, but I canít. Ok, open it.

Sam: Humor her.

Jen: Ok.

Nora: I love presents!

Jen: What is this?

Nora: Can you get it? Careful.

Jen: Wow!

Nora: Yeah.

Jen: This is great.

Nora: Yes.

Jen: Thank you so much.

Nora: It's a palm pilot! Ok, what you do is you get, like -- you can put, like, a calculator -- it's got a calculator and you can put your addresses and your appointments, things like that in it.

Jen: I think I'll read the instruction book.

Nora: Well, ok.

Sam: Hey, now, that's a great idea.

Nora: Yeah, this from a man. Would you like some eggnog or something?

Sam: Or how about helping the old man fix up a bike, huh?

Jen: I've got to get back to Cristian.

Sam: Oh. Ok.

Jen: Give Matthew a Christmas kiss from me.

Nora: I will, Sweetie, I will. Merry Christmas.

Jen: Bye.

Sam: All right, let me walk you to the door. So how's your mother taking you and Cristian moving in together, hmm?

Jen: A lot better than I expected.

Sam: Really? Well, that just goes to show you, Lindsayís always full of surprises.

-----------------------------------------------

Lindsay: I'm intrigued.

Troy: Intrigued? That's it? Because, you know, I was hoping you'd be a little more than that.

Lindsay: Well, I am a little curious as to why.

Troy: Why what?

Lindsay: Why are you trying so hard to get me to bed?

Nora's voice: I'm right, aren't I? You're going to get close to Lindsay so you can get her to confess to you.

Troy: Is that what you think Iím trying to do? You think I'm trying to get you into bed?

Lindsay: Well, aren't you?

Troy: Oh, I can be a whole lot more creative than just bed. But, you know, if bed is what you want, then your every wish is my command.

Lindsay: My every wish?

Troy: Mm-hmm, that's right. Well, we're both adults. We're both single. Christmas isn't the time to be alone.

Lindsay: No, it's not.

Troy: It's been a long time, Lindsay, since Iíve met anyone that I thought I could really care about.

Lindsay: Me, too.

Troy: Not since before I left for Africa.

Lindsay: So all of this bravado?

Troy: I like you. I like you just the way you are.

Lindsay: Really?

Troy: Really.

Lindsay: It's been a long time for me, too, since I've had any real companionship.

Troy: So then why should either of us be alone during the holidays?

Troy: If you want me to stop, you just tell me.

-----------------------------------------------

Cristian: So what are you getting at, Al? Are you saying that Jen was interested in you?

Al: No. Not at all.

Cristian: You lost me, man.

Al: I meant the part about me not going after Jen. The truth is I did.

Cristian: You did?

Al: Yeah, with you out of the way, I figured I'd might finally get a chance to be with Jen. But I didn't.

Cristian: Didn't what? Have a chance?

Al: No, not at all. She made that abundantly clear.

Cristian: So why are you telling me all this?

Al: Because I'd like the three of us to be friends and I don't want it to be based on a lie or a secret.

Cristian: Wow. I appreciate that, man.

Al:  Here. A combination together/moving-in-together present.

Cristian: Thanks. We'll have it at together dinner.

Al: Yeah, it's cider. My mom always serves cider at together dinner. I'm going to miss that this year.

Cristian: Why? No cider at the mansion?

Al: No together at the mansion. Asa's dead and I don't know where my parents are. I mean, Max and my mom, that is.

Cristian: So, what, you're going to be alone?

Al: Oh, man, it's no big deal. You know, I'll get the cook to whip something up, have a little chicken or turkey or stuffing or something. I'll be fine.

Cristian: You know what? Man, you're more than welcome to come here. I mean, it's just going to be me, Jen, and my family.

Al: Wow, that's really nice, but I don't know.

Cristian: Come on, come on, I'm sure Jen will be happy.

Al: Thanks. I'll -- I'll think about it.

Cristian: Ok.

Jen: Al.

Al: Jen.

Jen: What are you doing here?

-----------------------------------------------

Troy: Bed?

Lindsay: Bed.

Troy: Bed it is.

-----------------------------------------------

Renee: I'm sorry. I didn't know that R.J. had a child.

Keri: Well, now you do.

Renee: Yes, I do, and I apologize for what I said.

Keri: Because you didn't mean it?

Renee: No, because I spoke hastily. I didn't know that I was speaking to his daughter.

Keri: So you're not taking back the accusations?

Renee: If you would still like to keep that table at the palace, I would very much like you to be my guests.

Keri: You know, I don't think so. I think my father and I would prefer to dine elsewhere. If you'll excuse me, my father is waiting for me. So you ready to go?

R.J.: Yeah, yeah. I -- I couldn't help overhearing.

Keri: There are other restaurants in town.

R.J.: Yeah, it's -- I mean, what you said about -- about my being your father.

Keri: Well, you are, aren't you?

R.J.: Yes. Yeah. But, you know, you don't have --

Keri: I know. Let's go eat.

R.J.: Ok.

-----------------------------------------------

Todd: Could you just go take one last look at the kid?

Blair: What's the point, Todd?

Todd: Come on, Blair, he's -- he's beautiful. I mean, really, he looks exactly like what our kid would've looked like.

Blair: Just no.

Todd: And he's smart.

Blair: I know that he's smart. And I know that he's beautiful. And I know that he looks like he could be our biological son, but I --

Todd: You what?

Blair: I don't know.

Todd: All you got to do is look at him. That's all Iím asking. You just look at him one last time, please, for me. Ok, for Starr.

Starr: Spying is a very bad thing to do. Santa Claus isn't going to get you any presents this year!

Cassie: Starr, shh.

Blair: Hey, hey, hey. What's going on here?

Starr: Nothing, really. So are you ready to see the baby now? Mommy, he smiled at me. He looked at me and he smiled.

Todd: Go on, Blair. You know you want to.

Blair: No, I canít.

Starr: No, Mommy!

Cassie: Blair --

Blair: Starr, come on.

Starr: Mom!

Cassie: Blair!

Todd: Everything's going to be all right, ok? I'll take care of it. I'll figure out a way to change Blairís mind. Nobody's going to break up this family -- not now, not ever.

Cassie: Oh, my God.

[Bell rings]

-----------------------------------------------

Sam: It looks pretty hopeless, doesn't it?

Nora: No, it doesn't.

Sam: Well, love your optimism.

Nora: Anybody who can handle his kids the way you do, this should be a snap.

Sam: Well, wait until I try and put on the chain.

Nora: Jen and Cristian moving in together -- that can't be much easier on you than it is on Lindsay.

Sam: I wish that she waited until she was older and I wish that he had a clearer game plan for his future. But they're both good kids, and I've learned the hard way we all have to -- we all have to follow our own hearts and make our own choices and accept the consequences. That's what -- that's what makes us grow, that's what makes us learn. Loving someone means respecting that.

Nora: I love you, Sam.

Nora: Did I say that out loud?

Sam: I love you, too, Nora.

-----------------------------------------------

Troy: Wow. You really are a bad girl, huh?

Lindsay: Well, I think you bring it out in me. Maybe we really are a lot alike.

Troy: Maybe we are.

Lindsay: Why do I feel like I could tell you anything?

-----------------------------------------------

Al: I was just dropping off a together gift, that's all.

Jen: Well, that's sweet.

Al: And now I'm out of here. This Santaís got a lot more chimneys to drop down, so Iíll be seeing you guys, ok?

Cristian: Oh, and the offer stands.

Al: Great, Iíll think about it.

Cristian: Ok.

Jen: What offer?

Cristian: To join us for together dinner. He doesn't have anywhere else to go.

Jen: Aw, that's why I love you so much.

Cristian: So, did you drop off all your presents?

Jen: Safely under the tree.

Cristian: Cool.

Jen: And look what Dad and Nora got me.

Cristian: You just ran out of excuses for being late.

Jen: These aren't mine.

Cristian: No, my mom sent them. And they all better be displayed by the time she gets here for dinner. Here, sit.

Jen: Do you want some help?

Cristian: No. No, thanks. Why don't you play with your organizer? You want a soda?

Jen: Thanks.

Cristian: You know, Jen, you were right -- Al's not such a bad guy once you get to know him.

Jen: I'm 10 days late.

-----------------------------------------------

Blair: Ok. Go upstairs.

Starr: You promised I could visit the baby!

Blair: Yeah, and you know what -- you promised you wouldn't make me go inside.

Starr: I didn't promise, I said! It's not the same thing!

Blair: Oh, wait a minute, I distinctly remember sitting right over there, you said, "Mommy --"

Starr: Mommy, why can't we just keep the baby?

Blair: Because I'm the mommy and what I say goes.

Starr: Well, Daddy wants the baby, too. It's 2-1.

Blair: Well, you know what? You're just going to have to get over it.

Starr: I won't, and neither will Daddy. Not until the four of us are a big, happy family.

-----------------------------------------------

Todd: "Oh, my God," what?

Cassie: Why didn't I figure this out earlier?

Todd: Figure what out earlier?

Cassie: This isn't about Blair, about making her happy. This isn't about giving Starr what she wanted for together. This is about you, isn't it?

Todd: We already had this conversation. You remember? And I told you then that you were right, that I was so upset about having lost a kid that I made up this fantasy about this being my baby.

Cassie: But it's not a fantasy, is it? He's your son, isn't he?

>> On the next "One Life to Live" --

Jen: I just need to run to the drugstore for a minute. Cristian: What do you need?

Todd: How could that baby possibly be my biological son?

Viki: I have something for you and for you.

Keri: I'm with my father right now. Antonio: Why don't you invite your dad to come along?
