Cristian: You know, it still doesn't feel right, Jen -- you not being there at the loft.

Al: You think that, as soon as I can walk, Jen's going to run right back to Cristian.

Allison: Today is the day that we break the news to your poor, little Jessica.

Gabrielle: How do you think Blair's going to feel when she realizes that the baby you told her was dead was very much alive?


Al: Jen, what are you saying? I -- I really need you to spell this out for me.

Jen: I'm saying that Ė

[Jen sighs]

Jen: Al I care about you -- in the only way that counts. And I want to be here by your side. Baby or not, I'm not going to leave you.


Natalie: So, what did that punching bag ever do to you?

Cristian: Do you mind? I'm trying to work out here, ok?

Natalie: Yeah. I don't mind at all. So, tell me, who is it?

Cristian: Excuse me?

Natalie: Well, obviously something's got you ticked off -- or more like somebody. So, tell me, whose face do you see on that punching bag?


Jen: I'm not going anywhere, I swear.

Al: Yeah, well, neither am I in this stupid wheelchair.

Jen: You're going to get used to it, don't worry.

Al: Right. So, since when are you such an expert on my wheels?

Jen: I'm not, but Iím getting to be an expert on you, and it seems like you can pretty much do anything you want to do, as long as you want it badly enough.

Al: Well, I guess I can try, now that you're here.


Jessica: You're sick?

Roxy: Yeah, I'm very, very sick.

Jessica: But -- well, what's wrong with you?

Roxy: It's all right there in that report. But wait --

Jessica: What? If something's wrong with you, I want to know all about it.

Roxy: Why would you say that?

Jessica: Because you're my -- you're important to me.

Roxy: I am? That's really nice. Well, you know, you can look at that, but, you know, before you do, I just want to tell you that I feel terrible for bothering you with my problems.

Jessica: You're not bothering me.

Roxy: Yeah, well, whatever we are to each other -- you know, mother and daughter -- we just met. And, you know, normally I don't just drag someone into this mess of a life that I have got. But --

Jessica: What? But what?

Roxy: Well, baby, you might be sick, too.


Starr: Aunt Viki?

Viki: Yes, Honey?

Starr: Which one of these is your real kid?

Viki: Oh. Well, actually, they're both my real kids. You see, the one in the baby picture -- Natalie -- she's my biological child. And that means that I --

Starr: I know what that means.

Viki: You do? Wow. They'll have to promote you in school. Anyway, she's my biological child. And Jessica -- I'm going to adopt Jessica.

Starr: Kind of like me and Jack. Jack is adopted, and Iím biological.

Viki: Yes, exactly. Just as you and Jack are both really, really loved by your mom and dad, I love Jessica and Natalie.

Starr: Yeah, but --

Viki: But what honey?

Starr: Who do you love the most?

Niki: Wow! Out of the mouths of babes, huh? How do you like them apples, kid?


Gabrielle: Would you care to take a look, Blair?

Blair: At that, your resume? Now, why would I want to do that, Gabrielle? You probably made everything up in it.

Gabrielle: Oh, I think she would believe everything in here, don't you, Todd? Go ahead, open it.

Gabrielle: As you will see, I wrote down in detail everything I overheard on the docks last night between you and David Vickers. I think your wife should read my resume. Don't you think she should read it? I mean, after all, she did show some signs that she didn't quite believe my qualifications for the job of style editor.

Blair: Oh, you know what? I don't doubt your qualifications because you don't have any.

Gabrielle: Then you must be very curious as to why Todd is willing to offer me this job. Why don't you read it? Honestly, it'll clear everything up.

Blair: Let me get this straight. Right now I think that you are a bed-hopping, fortune-hunting, Brit-talking con-bimbo who's in between prison sentences, but you think after I read that so-called resume of yours, I'm suddenly going to think that you are the greatest thing since Lois Lane to the journalism world, hmm?

Gabrielle: Well, I wouldn't go that far. What I would say is that what's in my hand will explain to you the reason why I came here without any doubt in my mind that Todd would hire me.


Starr: Who do you love the most, Jessica or Natalie?

Viki: Starr, I don't even know what kind of question that is.

Starr: An easy one.

Niki: What, are you kidding? It's a no-brainer!

Viki: Be quiet!

Starr: Ok, let's say Jessica's in this hand, and Natalie's in this hand. Which hand would you pick?

Niki: I like this kid!

Viki: Shush!

Starr: Ok, which hand would you pick?

Viki: What? What do you mean, which hand? Honey, love isn't like that, ok? I mean, I love them both.

Starr: The same way?

Viki: Well, no. No, of course, not the same way. I mean, they're different people, aren't they?

Starr: So, you mean, one of them is prettier or smarter or something? Is that the one you love the most?

Niki: This kid's going to drive you nuts! I'm going to stick around for this.

Viki: What are you even doing here?

Starr: My mom left me here, remember?

Niki: Man, are you racked!

Viki: Just go away.

Starr: I can't. I can't even drive yet.

Niki: Hey, you! Kid asked you a question. Answer her! Who do you love most, huh?

Viki: Will you shut up?

Starr: I was just asking you a question. You don't have to be so mean!

Viki: Oh, Staer. Honey, Iím really sorry, ok? I didn't mean it. I wasn't even talking to you.

Starr: But I'm the only one here, unless you count Jack.

Niki: And Niki makes three! Of course, the kid can't see me because I'm a part of you. In fact, Iím the part of you that's wondering the same thing that the kid is wondering -- I mean, do you even like your real daughter, Natalie?

Viki: You listen to me. I love Jessica --

Starr: Why didn't you say so in the first place?

Niki: Come on, of course you love Jessica. I mean, that's the easy part, isn't it? It was all those of years of mother/daughter bonding bull.

Viki: And I love Natalie.

Starr: Oh, we're back to that again.

Niki: Get out of here. You don't love Natalie. You love Jessica because she's a wimp and she's so good all the time. Personally, I'd pick Natalie. That's my kind of girl. She's got some guts! You would never pick her, would you? And she's your own flesh-and-blood.

Viki: I love them both!

Starr: Ok, you don't have to yell.

Niki: Yes, you don't have to yell. Who are you trying to convince, for God's sakes? Her? Me? You?

Viki: I love them both!

Starr: Ok!

Viki: I love them both.

Ben: What's going on?

Viki: Nothing.

Ben: Well, I heard someone yelling. Did Starr do something?

Viki: No. It's nothing, really. I -- I was just Ė


Natalie: Now, come on, Cris. I saw you destroying that punching bag. Who are you thinking of?

Cristian: Don't you have something better to do?

Natalie: Hmm. No, in fact, I can't think of anything. Ok, so you're not going to tell me? Then I'll guess. Hmm. Mrs. Rappaport? Oh, yeah, you're too much of a gentleman. You wouldn't hit a lady.

Cristian: Lucky for you, huh?

Natalie: Oh! Oh, Al Buchanan. Bingo.

Cristian: This isn't a game, ok? So why don't you just knock it off? Jeez.

Natalie: That's for sure. You know, when Seth dumped me and went off with Jessica, I wanted to smash her face, too.

Cristian: Hey! Now, hold on a second. Jessica's my friend, ok?

Natalie: Lucky you.

Cristian: And for your information, Natalie, no, I don't want to smash Al's face in. I put the guy in a wheelchair. That's more than enough, don't you think?

Natalie: Look, I just wanted to make sure that you knew you weren't alone.

Cristian: Yeah, well, maybe I want to be alone. You've already made a mess out of your own life, so why don't you stay the hell out of mine?


Al: Sorry. I'm sorry. I thought that -- I mean, I didn't --

Jen: No, it's --

Al: I'm sorry.

Jen: It's ok. You didn't do anything wrong.

Al: Man, what was I thinking?

Jen: I just wasn't ready.

Al: Yeah. Yeah.

Max: Jen, welcome to the party. Doesn't Al look great?

Jen: He looks terrific.

Al: Aw, come on. Every chick digs a guy with a new set of wheels.

Max: Hey, listen, you really should check out your room. Jessica did a great job of setting it up.

Jen: I can take you if you want me to.

Max: Well, actually, Jen, I'd like to show you some exercises that Larry Wolek prescribed for Al's physical therapy.

Jen: Oh. Are you going to be ok?

Al: Me? Yeah. Yeah, sure. No problem. I got to learn how to work this stupid contraption sooner or later. It's just me, learning.

Max: Nice of you to drop by.

Jen: Sorry I was late.

Max: Al was starting to worry you weren't coming.

Jen: I just got a little sidetracked.

Max: With Cristian Vega? Thought so. Now, you listen to me. Vega broke my son's body. I'm not about to let you break his heart.


Gabrielle: Come on, Blair. Open it up and have a laugh.

Todd: Ok, fine. Look, you know, fun's fun, but enough is enough. I really do, believe or not, have to run a newspaper. And there's got to be something in the world more interesting to do than this.

Blair: No, wait a minute. Just for a laugh -- oh, yeah, you know what? It might be a hoot to see what she can considers qualifications. This would probably be the first resume in history that mentions sleeping your way to the top. Now, did you put that under "experience" or "education"?

Todd: Ok. Hey, hey, you want a laugh? I'll tell you a joke. All right, "Three cowboys walk into a bar, singing 'Westward --'"

Blair: What?

Todd: Oh, wait, I can't tell you that one. You know what? Never mind. I don't have time for this.

Gabrielle: Then I must be hired.

Blair: No way! Todd called security, and they should be here by now, and, well, you know what? This is your last opportunity just to leave on your own steam, Gabrielle.

Gabrielle: But Todd wants me to stay. Don't you, Todd?

Blair: Why don't you just throw her out?


Ben: You want to tell me what happened?

Starr: I'll tell you what happened. First, Aunt Viki told me to go away --

Ben: Starr --

Starr: Then she told me to shut up!

Ben: Starr!

Starr: What?

Ben: It's not nice to talk that way about people who love you, especially when it's not true.

Starr: It is true! Even ask her yourself! Everybody's going wacko around here.

Viki: Ben, I think I said those things to her. I'm very sorry, Starr.

Starr: See?

Ben: Listen, Starr, why don't you go --

Starr: I know, I know. Lois, kitchen, cinnamon rolls.

Ben: Hey. What happened?

Viki: I don't know. Starr was talking to me, and then all of a sudden, out of the blue, Niki Smith was here.

Ben: She came out?

Viki: No. No, no, no. No, not that. No, she was here like before, in my mind, but she was talking to me. It all started when Starr was asking me these "Starr" questions.

Ben: What did she ask you?

Viki: She was talking about Jessica and Natalie. She wanted to know who I loved the most. Well, Niki Smith had a field day with that one, didn't she? I don't know why she was here, Ben. I don't get it, ok? I don't get it. I mean, I had known why she came back the last time, when Allison reappeared in our lives, because Allison had tried to set her up for the kidnapping.

Ben: Well, Natalie is tied to Allison.

Viki: Yeah, I know, and that's why it made sense the last time. But it doesn't make any sense now. Why was she here? She only comes when I'm really, really upset!

Ben: Well, maybe it's because Natalie and Jessica haven't been getting along.

Viki: But I've been handling that. I've been dealing with it very, very well! No, I don't get it. And it scares me now, you know, I'm frightened.


Jessica: I might be sick, too?

Roxy: I'm afraid so. It's all in that report. Oh, what is that word, that word, you know, when you could inherit a bad disease from your parents? Uh --

Jessica: Genetic?

Roxy: Genetic. Yeah, you know, something in the genes. So that means if I got it, then maybe you got it, too. You know, figures that would be the only thing that I would leave a kid of mine.

Jessica: Well, what -- what is it, exactly?

Roxy: Oh, it's bad. It's really bad. I got this blood sugar thing.

Jessica: You have a problem with your blood sugar level?

Roxy: Yeah, it's either too high or it's too low or it's not the right kind. I don't understand anything in that medical report. But, baby, it's bad. They told me that I might not make it.

Jessica: I'm sorry. That's why you were at Llanview Hospital, wasn't it?

Roxy: I didn't want you to see me there. I didn't want you to know. But, honey, just know that you got to get tested. You got to find out if you have it, too. Life is like a roll of the dice. And I'm just praying to lady luck that you don't come up with snake eyes.

Jessica: Well, I'm going to be fine. And so are you. Come on, blood sugar problems, they're treatable, right? Yeah, they are.

Roxy: You sure?

Jessica: Well, that's what Iíve heard. And I hear a lot of medical talk because my step dad used to be a doctor, and my Uncle Larry -- I'm going to call him. I'm going to call him because he'll drop anything for the case right away if I ask him.

Roxy: Oh, baby, that's a great idea.

Jessica: Yeah.

Roxy: Except for one thing.

Jessica: What? What? What could possibly be wrong with me calling my uncle?


[Knock on door]

Cristian: What are you doing here?

Natalie: You forgot your gym bag.


Todd: I'm going to throw Gabrielle out. It's just that I was hoping security would come do it because I'm wearing a nice suit. And I think maybe you should go get Jack and Starr and get them away from Viki because she's a terrible influence on them.

Blair: Todd, I just came over here to talk about maybe coming back to work --

Todd: Well, fine. Look, whatever you want to talk about, we can talk about later.

Blair: You know, if she weren't here, we could've worked this out by now.

Todd: Well, she won't be here long. And when security comes, they might take her hair out of the French twist. And you don't want be here for that.

Blair: Fine. I'll go. I'll see you at home.

[Door opens and closes]

Gabrielle: It's remarkable. You two have a remarkable relationship. You do. Wonder if you still will after I tell her the truth.

Todd: You're not going to tell Blair anything because, if you tell Blair the truth about baby Jack, you won't have anything to hold over my head.

Gabrielle: Todd, I have nothing to lose. Nothing. So if you're not going to give me this job here, believe me, I shall enjoy bringing you down immensely. So why don't you give me something to lose, or get ready to say goodbye to your precious, sweet, little wifey.

Todd: You don't have the guts.

Gabrielle: Oh, yes, I do. And you know I do. Now, let's stop the games. Hire me now. Hmm? Or shall I tell Blair everything I know? Hmm? What's it going to be, Todd? Hmm? Zen directions?


Jen: I'm sorry if Al was worried about me. I don't want to hurt him.

Max: I saw you just now, when he tried to kiss you roll away like he was poison.

Jen: I just broke up with my boyfriend. You have to understand --

Max: Can't get over Cristian. Yeah, I got it. But you made a promise to Al. You said you'd be there for him in whatever way he needs you to be. At least that's what he told me.

Jen: Yes, that's what I said.

Max: Did you mean it?

Jen: Yes.

Max: Oh, yes, you do. And Al's counting on it.

[Jen sighs]

Jen: I know.

Max: You do you know that he's been sitting here, talking about a future with you?  I don't want to see my son get disappointed.

Jen: I won't disappoint him. I'm going to be here to help him. No matter how long it takes for him to get on his feet again.

Max: That could be a long time, if ever.

Jen: However long it takes, I'll be with him

Max: I'm glad to hear it. I just want to make sure you understand what a promise like that could mean.

Al: Hey.

Max: Hey.

Al: What's going on?

Jen: Nothing much.

Max: No, just going over with Jen all the exercises she needs to work on with you to get in shape.

Jen: I got it.

Max: Well, listen, why don't I drive you two overheat strings? You can start helping Al right now.


Cris: What the hell did you do that for?

Natalie: For being the jerk of the century. You know, I try to be friendly --

Cristian: That's what you call being friendly?

Natalie: Well, yeah, and you blow up at me for no reason! Hah!

Cristian: Well, how about this for a reason? I just lost my girlfriend and thatís a big joke to you?

Natalie: You know, you were in this mood. I was trying to help you out of it.

Cristian: Well, you didn't.

Natalie: Ok, give me an F for people skills. But at least I was trying. You know, I just broke up with my boyfriend, and do you see me taking it out on everyone else?

Cristian: Do you really want me to answer that?

Natalie: You ok?

Cristian: Well, you threw a mean gym bag. But, yeah, fine.

Natalie: I didn't plan that. Actually, I just planned to get an Apollo.  Slamming the gym bag at you kind of  just happened.

Cristian: Well, yeah, things always happen when you're around.

Natalie: And what is that is supposed to mean?

Cristian: Oh, wait a minute.

Natalie: Does this have anything to do with when I told Al about Jen not being pregnant? You know, that was a mistake.

Cristian: Whoa, who whoa -- hold on a second. I know that. I was there, remember?

Natalie: Yeah. Yeah, I remember. You stuck up for me. And, you know, I thought you were a nice person then.

Cristian: Look, I'm sorry about going off on you before.

Natalie: Thanks.

Cristian: Me, I have no excuse, but I was angry. I was angry about Jen being with Al. And I still angry. I mean, I know I don't have the right to be, but I am.


Ben: Whatever is, we'll deal with it. Together.

Viki: Thank you. Ok don't worry because it's not like Niki's going to take over or anything. I control my personalities, and Niki damn well knows that.

Ben: So why do you think she showed up?

Viki: I don't know. I mean it must've had something to do with Starr's questions know, Jack and Natalie. Niki hates kids, and she's always made fun of me for loving my children.

Ben: If Niki has a problem with that, she can go back to where she came from. Matter of fact, you can tell her that.

Viki: I love you such. Ben: I love you. All of you.

Blair: Oops.

Viki: It's all right, Blair.

Blair: How was my little boy?

Viki: He was an absolute angel. Always is.

Viki: Ah. How'd it go?

Blair: Well, I hit a snag.


Gabrielle: Friendless shoplifter to -- fashion editor? What a difference a day makes; yes.


Roxy: Don't bother your Uncle Larry. I don't want to mooch off your family.

Jessica: Roxanne, it's not a big deal. My Uncle, he's a doctor. That's what he does.

Roxy: We got plenty of doctors here in Atlantic City.

Jessica: Yeah, but --

Roxy: Hey! I got my pride.

Jessica: Ok. Ok, but can you please see somebody? Because this is treatable. You can get medicine for this.

Roxy: I don't think it's treatable right now because I let it go on too long. I didn't have any medical insurance, and now the treatments are going to be really, really expensive.

Jessica: Well, don't worry about that. The important thing is that you get well.

Roxy: Hey, look, I don't want to bother you with my troubles.

Jessica: You're not bothering me. Come on, you're my --

Roxy: What, baby?

Jessica: You're my mother.


Viki: Are you serious?

Blair: Oh.

Viki: Gabrielle asked Todd for a job? She'd have had a better shot with me.

Blair: Like you want to have anything to do with that woman?

Viki: Yeah, well, unfortunately, we don't always have a choice regarding who we have to deal with, you know? Like Allison Perkins.

Ben: No, wait a minute. Allison Perkins, we don't have to worry about her anymore, do we?

Viki: I don't know. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, you know? Well, I'm glad that Todd got rid of Gabrielle.

Ben: Well, you might not be that glad.

Viki: Why?

Ben: She may come bother us next. Don't forget who's moving into the carriage house.

Viki: Oh, Lord.


Al: Man, Iím really starting to get the hang of this thing.

Jen: Great.

Al: Just like you said I would.

Jen: That's good.

Al: Uh-huh. Jen, what was going on between you and my father before?

Jen: It's like he said --

Al: Yeah, yeah, I heard what he said. Now I'd like to hear it from you - did he pressure you into this? Ok, too hard a question. How about this one. Are you here because you want to be? Or would you rather be someplace else?


Natalie: You have every right to be upset. I mean, even angry. We both do. We both just got dumped by people that we love.

Cristian: Oh, I didn't get dumped by Jen. I walked away because I'm trying to do the right thing.

Natalie: How can it be the right thing to give up someone you love? Someone who loves you?

Cristian: Well, because sometimes there are certain things that are more important than being happy. And you just got to accept it.

Natalie: Oh, oh, that's what you're doing? Accepting it? Get real. You were just destroying a punch bag half an hour ago.

Cristian: So, I'm trying to accept it. I didn't say it was easy.

Natalie: This totally bites. You know, every time I see Seth with Jessica, I picture, like, someone stabbing me in the heart with a knife.

Cristian: Yeah.

Natalie: I don't know, I just feel like sometimes I can't even breathe hardly, you know? I get sick to my stomach.

Cristian: It'll get better.

Natalie: When? You know, I'm still waiting. Seth and I, we've been broken up longer than you and Jen. I mean, this has got to be 10 times worse on you.

Cristian: So, what if it is 10 times worse? There's nothing I can do about it.

Natalie: Oh, what the hell are you talking about? Of course there's something you can do about it.


Roxy: She bought that whole story, lock, stock, and peanut clusters. Hey!

Allison: Will you stop scarfing down all that sugar!

Roxy: Hey, Iím not sick, you know.

Allison: You have to stay in character. I don't want another slip in front of Jessica, like that Larry Wolek blunders.

Roxy: I covered for it.

Allison: Barely. We have to remember, we don't want any real doctors involved in this. So far, everything's going according to plan.

Roxy: Did you see her face when I told her that I didn't have medical insurance?

Allison: I sure did. Jessica's probably already on her way to the A.T.M.

Roxy: Whoo.


Viki: Well, thank you very much for coming by. It was lovely to have little children in the house again.

Blair: Oh, I bet it was, and I should thank you.

Viki: Hi, Jessie.

Blair: Hi,Jjess.

Jessica: Hi.

Viki: What's wrong?

Jessica: Um, nothing. I'm fine. Ben, could I talk to you?

Ben: Excuse me.

Ben: What's this?

Jessica: Roxanne's sick. She may not make it.

Ben: Oh, yeah? Is that what she told you?

Jessica: Well, she didn't want me to know, but she thought that I might need to get tested.

Ben: You should. But usually this condition can be controlled with medication.

Jessica: She says it's probably too late for that. Is that possible?

Ben: Possible? Yes.

Jessica: Well, she is the one who gave birth to me, so if there's anything I can do to help her, I want to.

Ben: Well, that is if she's really sick.


Viki: Thank you for coming, my sweet boy.

Blair: Say, "You're welcome. I had a good time."

Starr: It's about time you're here.

Blair: Well, what's wrong, sweetie? Didn't you have a good time here?

Starr: Not with Aunt Viki acting all weird and yelling.

Blair: Yeah, like, that's the Aunt Viki we know.

Starr: Tell me about it.

[Doorbell rings]

Viki: Excuse me.

Blair: Well, hello --

Viki: Todd. You look terrible.

Todd: Thanks.

Viki: Gabrielle must've been a handful.

Todd: No. Piece of cake.

Viki: You took care of her?

Todd: Oh, yeah, I got rid of her. Let's just say I took care of her real good.


Gabrielle: Al, hi, it's mom. Listen, I hope you're out enjoying yourself. I'm so sorry that I wasn't available to help you settle into the carriage house, but I was working on a pop-- I was working an opportunity that paid off. It's such wonderful news. It's such good news for both of us. I can't wait to share it with you. So, I'll see you very, very, very soon. Love you. Bye.


Al: Jen, did my father say something to make you feel guilty?

Jen: No, this is not because of him.

Al: Great. You feel guilty all on your own. I hate that even more.

Jen: Nobody forced me to come here, not even myself. Al, I'm here for one reason.

Al: What's that?


Cristian: Look, Natalie. Jen is with Al now. And after what I did to the guy, what can I possibly do about it?

Natalie: Whatever you have to. You lie, you fight, and you scheme.

Cristian: I already tried that. And that's how this whole thing has happened. I fought Al over Jen, and now the guy may never walk again.

Natalie: Yeah, so, you get the guy out of the way. What, do you want to give up now?

Cristian: You know what? That's really sick.

Natalie: Well, do you have a better idea? I mean, crying yourself to sleep at night? That doesn't work, trust me. And punching a bag, making your fingers bleed? That doesn't work, either. And you know what? I think you know that.

Cristian: Well, maybe there's nothing you can do. Maybe you just got to live with it.

Natalie: How? How do you get over the end of your life? I mean, what do you do? Do drugs? Do you drink six-pack after six-pack every night? Watch cartoons? I mean, tell me, Cristian. What do you do? How -- I need to know. I really need to know before --

Cristian: Hey, look. Natalie, it'll be ok.

Natalie: No. Cristian, what are we going to do? How are we going to get over these feelings?


>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "One Life to Live."

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

Jessica: Natalie? You got to be kidding.

Ben: You seem awful confident that you're going to beat these charges, Asa.  Asa: You just watch me.

Keri: Antonio and I -- it's just not going to work.

Lindsay: I got this. And don't think I don't know who sent it!
