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

Janet: I've come to move the children to foster care, pending the hearing.

[Jack cries]

Ben: How's he doing? He doesn't sound too happy.

R.J.: I'll tell everyone that you're lying.

Shawna: And I'll tell everyone who put me up to it.

Natalie: I've lost Seth forever.

Jen: Marrying Al is the right thing to do.

Sam: Even though you love somebody else?

Al: If she finds out I can walk, I'll lose her, Mom.

***********************************************

Todd: Hello? Oh, look, we're all alone. No baby-stealers here yet.

Blair: Please don't antagonize the social worker.

Todd: Don't forget the judge. They're in on this together now.

Blair: Todd, please don't antagonize anybody. We could lose our children.

Todd: No, we're not. There's no way I'm going to let a social worker or some guy in a robe take our kids away from us. Those are our kids and they are always going to be with us.

Blair: I know that you love our children, but I'm telling you right now -- and don't yell at me, all right? -- If the judge finds out that we've adopted Jack illegally, we could lose both of our children.

Todd: You need to shut up now. Here they come.

Judge: Mr. and Mrs. Manning?

Todd: Yeah, what do you want?

Judge: Are you ready to begin?

***********************************************

[Jack cries]

Niki: "Man born with third elbow"? Cool. For crying out loud, will you shut up? I'm trying to read!

[Crying continues]

Niki: Hey, kid, when I say shut up, I mean you! How come you're still so hot?

Ben: Well, Starr's off to school. But the bad news is Jack's babysitter called in sick.

Niki: [As Viki] Oh, dear.

Ben: Yeah, looks like we can't go to Jenís wedding.

Niki: Oh. Well, you know what -- you should just go by yourself. I'll be here.

Ben: I don't want to do that. That wouldn't be fair to you. Besides, I don't think I'll be missed.

Niki: But, Ben, she's your niece.

Ben: Yeah, I know, but trust me, Jen won't notice. So how's he doing? He doesn't sound too happy.

***********************************************

Natalie: Thanks for coming with me, Cris.

Cristian: Natalie, come on, talk to me.

Natalie: There's nothing to talk about.

Cristian: I know that seeing Seth and Jessica together --

Natalie: I don't want to talk about them.

Cristian: Oh, come on, it's obvious. It's obvious that you're bugged about seeing how close they've gotten. And you know what --

Natalie: Look, I really just want to go see my mother, ok?

Cristian: Yeah. Yeah, sure.

Natalie: Look, I know you're just trying to help. Thank you.

Cristian: I just want to know you're ok.

Natalie: I'm never going to be ok.

***********************************************

Dean Baker: Prof. Reynolds, you've denied the charges. Can you provide supporting evidence?

Keri: Evidence that I didn't do something? How am I supposed to do that?

Dean Baker: Then if no one has anything to add --

Antonio: I do. Plenty.

Dean Baker: Sir, you have no right to address this panel.

Antonio: But liars and cheats do? Never mind, Dean Baker. You don't have to answer that because it stops. Right now.

***********************************************

Gabrielle: Asa, I realize that you have difficulty with this concept, but Bo and I are friends.

Asa: I know you, Gabrielle. You've always got some scheme going, always looking for a man.

Gabrielle: Oh, what nonsense that is.

Asa: You listen to me, and you listen real good -- you're not going to do to my son what you did to me.

Gabrielle: What I did to you?

Asa: He already knows about your twisted little brain. The only man you've ever liked is Max Holden.

Gabrielle: Oh, for pity's sake.

Asa: Bo will not be your next fall guy. And the only damn reason he invited you into his house was to get back at me. He can't stand the likes of you.

***********************************************

Man: You the guy getting hitched? What's the wheelchair ramp for? We both know you can walk.

Jen: Al? What is he talking about?

Al: He says that he saw me walking. And he did.

***********************************************

Antonio: When so-called witnesses come forward to testify against one of your professors, wouldn't it be useful to check out who they are or whether or not they're credible?

Dean Baker: Mr. Vega, we are not going to allow any name-calling here today. These young people are here --

Antonio: Like Prof. Reynolds can be called names, is that it?

Dean Baker: These young people are here --

Antonio: These young people are lying, Dean Baker. Or don't you care?

Dean Baker: Do I have to call security and have them --

Rae: No, don't you dare. If he has proof, I for one would like to hear it.

Woman: I agree. If we're going to take the word of these young people, we should let Mr. Vega show us whatever he has that's relevant.

Antonio: Oh, it's relevant, all right. Jonathan Mark Little. Jon here is a transfer student. If you check your records, you'll see he came to campus from California in late January.

Rae: Late January?

Antonio: Exactly, months after he supposedly saw Prof. Reynolds involved in inappropriate activity. Marsha Jane Harper. You didn't arrive to Llanview until late in the second semester, either, right, Marsha?

Marsha: I don't really think that's relevant.

Antonio: I'm sorry. Try that again?

Rae: The witness will answer the question, thank you.

Marsha: I did six months at Harrow House, August 1 to February 1.

Antonio: A drug rehab facility over a hundred miles away. So much for two eyewitnesses. Jake Evans. Want to tell them about your arrest record, Jakey?

Jake: Hey, man, that's not fair. I wasn't brought in here --

Antonio: Shawna, you obviously didn't tell your friends what I do for a living. You see, Jake, police records, they're my business. Drugs, drugs, petty theft, possible date rape, and more drugs. Oh, this is a good one. Your own father refers to you as a pathological liar.

Jake: Hey, man, he's got it in for me. I hate the cheap son of a --

Antonio: Yeah, I bet you do. Irene Alice Barber.

Irene: Look, I just came here to help out a friend. Are you going to just let him insult me?

Antonio: Is it or is it not true that you have a history of fabricating stories about teachers?

Irene: That is such a crock.

Antonio: Irene, it's in your school record. It started with a seventh-grade gym teacher, and it just keeps getting worse. Yes or no?

Irene: Shawna made me lie. She paid me 50 bucks.

Antonio: 50 bucks, for the good name of someone you never even met. I'll let the panel decide if that was a good price.

Dean Baker: But why? Why are these young people lying?

Antonio: Well, I was hoping we could find that out, Dean Baker. Right now.

***********************************************

Niki: [As Viki] Oh, no. He's absolutely fine.

[Jack cries]

Niki: He's so sweet. You know, he's been making all those lovely little baby noises. He's so dear. Actually, he's quite calm now. He's almost asleep.

[Crying stops]

Ben: Are you sure he's all right?

Niki: Oh, absolutely. He's fine. Hey, I've been checking on him every two seconds. I would know. See? Now he's asleep. You should go to the wedding alone. I'll be fine by myself.

Ben: I don't want to do that and I don't want to leave you with all the work.

Niki: What work?

Ben: Jack.

Niki: Oh. Oh, no, no, no, no.

Ben: You seem tired.

Niki: Ben, why don't you just come out and say what you're thinking. You don't want to leave me alone with that child because I'm a terrible mother.

***********************************************

Cristian: You and Seth broke up a long time ago.

Natalie: Yeah, but I thought he was coming back to me.

Cristian: Did he say that?

Natalie: Yes! I mean, maybe not in those words exactly, but -- but Jessica didn't believe him. She thought that he took the money from the Break Bar, and he knew that I believed him and that I always would.

Cristian: So you figured that the next step would be --

Natalie: Look, I've lost him forever! I don't know what I'm going to do.

Cristian: Well, I guess you're going to have to do whatever you've been doing for the past few months. You know, Seth and Jessica, they've been together. They were together all that time.

Natalie: But don't you see? I'd lost him, but I knew that there was always a way I could get him back. I mean, I pulled every trick in the book!

Cristian: What are you talking about? What tricks did you pull, Natalie?

***********************************************

Jen: You were walking?

Al: Yeah. And Tony saw me. But it was a while ago. See, Tonyís a custodian at the university. He works nights. He didn't know anything about the accident, the wheelchair -- none of it.

Jen: Oh, ok. So you haven't seen Al since his accident?

Tony: Yeah, I was surprised to see him in the chair. Well, listen, take care and good luck, huh? I got to go.

Al: All right. Thanks a lot, Tony. I'll see you. Nice guy. So I thought that I wasn't supposed to see you until you were walking down the aisle.

Jen: You forgot something.

Al: I forgot something? What'd I forget? I got my tie and my cufflinks. I know I brought my tuxedo.

Jen: Open it.

Al: What is this?

Jen: Check the cap.

Al: "Jen and Al, April 12, 2002." Our wedding date.

Jen: Well, I thought you'd want to have something to sign the license with.

Al: This is just -- come here. Come here. Oh. You are the best thing that ever happened to me, ever. The best thing that ever will.

***********************************************

Judge: Mr. And Mrs. Manning, I must say I'm disturbed that you knowingly concealed the fact that you had a second child. The original subject of the investigation by child services was your daughter --

Janet: Starr, Your Honor.

Judge: Yes. Starr. But when I learned that you had concealed the infant, I felt compelled to remove to both children from the home until the matter could be resolved. Have you and your lawyer, Mr. Dailey, been provided copies of Ms. Major's reports?

Todd: Yeah, it's all right here.

Judge: May I inquire as to why Mr. Dailey isn't present?

Todd: Oh, he's got another case in Seattle with Greta Van -- somebody. Look, you can watch, if you like. It's on trial TV.

Judge: But if you knew Mr. Dailey couldn't be here, why didn't you seek postponement of this hearing?

Todd: Because I didn't want to be separated from our children any longer than you already did. It's just not going to happen.

Blair: Todd, please.

Todd: You people are unbelievable, you know that?

Judge: Excuse me?

Todd: You got kids, Judge?

Judge: Mr. Manning, you're out of order.

Todd: How about you, Janet? Oh, why do I even bother asking you? No, of course you don't have children, because if you did have children, you wouldn't be taking other people's families away from them.

Janet: I resent that, Mr. Manning.

Judge: Mr. Manning, you're way out of bounds here. If this is the kind of example you set for your daughter, there's no wonder she feels free to flout the normal rules of behavior.

Blair: Todd, you cannot say things like that. Now please stop.

Judge: We have rules that we all work under, and if you don't follow those rules --

Todd: I don't follow rules. I donít. Blair -- well, for the most part, Blair follows the rules, but I donít.

Judge: Then perhaps today should be the day you start!

Todd: Because the rules don't work. I've been to prison, ok? I've hurt a bunch of people. I've probably hurt a lot of people that didn't deserve to be hurt as badly as I've hurt them.

Blair: Todd, would you please just stop?

Todd: And I'm not a nice guy and I have no idea what the word "flout" means. Now, you probably think that makes me a bad parent, but that's where you would be wrong.

Blair: Todd, please, please --

Todd: Because I want what's best for Starr and for Jack. I want them to be happier than -- every parent wants their children to be happier than they were. Every parent wants their kids to have a better situation than they ever had. Of course, you don't know anything about that because you don't have kids, do you?

Judge: Mr. Manning --

Todd: I fight every day, not so that my kids can be happy, but so that my kids can have an idea that being happy isn't some weird kind of thing that happens to other people, but it does, it happens to people, normal people, and they think that's normal. Some people in this world think that it's really great to be great to other people.

Blair: Would you please do something to stop him, Sam?

Todd: And you know what -- it's working. I mean, these kids, they're -- well, they're ok kids.

Judge: I'm sure they are, Mr. Manning, but --

Sam: Stop Todd? If you know how to do that, tell me.

Todd: I'm not going to let some guy in a funny black robe take my kids away from me. You got another thing coming.

Judge: Are you threatening me, Sir?

Todd: No, you're threatening me. You're threatening to take my family away from me! And if you think I'm going to let that happen -- there is no way in hell I'm going to let that happen!

***********************************************

Ben: How can you say that? You're a terrific mother. Look how Jessica turned out.

Niki: [As Viki] Jessicaís not mine.

Ben: Yeah, but you raised her. You were her mother. Where's this coming from? How can you say that you're a bad mother?

Niki: Well, I mean, look at Natalie.

***********************************************

Cristian: What tricks did you pull to get Seth back, Natalie?

Natalie: It's a 50/50 exchange. You use your friendship with Jessica to break up Seth and Jessica, I let you keep Jen.

Natalie: I arranged for Jessica to find out that Seth spent the night with me, even though he was passed out drunk. And I threw myself at him. You know what? I really don't want to talk about this. I just need to go see my Mom, ok?

Cristian: Yeah. Yeah, sure. Ok. If you need anything --

Natalie: I'll call. Thank you.

Cristian: Ok.

***********************************************

Ben: That's absurd.

Niki: [As Viki] Well, it may very well be absurd, but it's the way I feel. What can I say?

Ben: Natalie isn't proof of anything. Now, she had a rotten mother, but that was Roxanne, not you.

Niki: Oh, Ben, Ben, let's face the facts, please -- if I were any kind of a decent mother, I couldn't possibly hate Natalie the way I do.

***********************************************

Dean Baker: Ladies and gentlemen, the affidavits in support of Shawna Quinlanís accusation are obviously worthless. Ms. Quinlan, would you like to withdraw your complaint?

Shawna: No. How was I supposed to know that my friends were all lying to me?

Antonio: If I may, I'd like to address the second part of Ms. Quinlan's complaint directly.

Dean Baker: Proceed.

Antonio: Did I have a personal relationship with Keri Reynolds while I was still her student? I wanted to, believe me, but time and again, she told me we had to go by the rules, and we did. Of course, it wasn't that hard for her since I was acting like a total jerk. And just to give you an example of how big a jerk I was, take a look at my first draft. You'll notice all the notes on it. See, when I saw that, I lost it and said some things that I still regret. I think it would be fair to say that Prof. Reynolds didn't think much of me at that point.

Shawna: Look, I still saw what I saw, and if he thinks that he can just --

Rae: Shawna, you had your say, so shut your mouth.

Antonio: Here's the second draft, which she also hated. The third.

Rae: Thank you.

Antonio: The fourth.

Woman: Well, looks like you were improving.

[Rae laughs]

Antonio: Yes, yes, I was, because Prof. Reynolds kept pushing me. You see, good enough was never acceptable, but that wasn't favoritism. It was -- it was a great professor pushing a student to reach her high standards.

***********************************************

Gabrielle: I don't have any delusions about Bo. I know he has no romantic interest in me.

Asa: You are damn right.

Gabrielle: I realize that when he looks at me he probably sees an ex-con who, well, is willing to lie and cheat whenever she's desperate.

Asa: Or any other time it suits her.

Gabrielle: Bo is a man of integrity and honesty, unlike his father, all right? So you don't need to worry about me because I know my place, Asa. Besides, Bo would never look at me in that way.

***********************************************

Max: Ahem. Where's Renee? She asked me to get these so they could put them out.

Gabrielle: That would be my job. Thank you very much.

Max: There goes the icing. All right, what'd I miss?

Asa: Oh, she's all in a twist because she can't get her way with Bo.

Max: She never learns, does she?

Asa: Uh-uh.

Max: Listen, where's my son? I'd like to have a few words with him before the ceremony.

***********************************************

Jen: Well, I'd better go get dressed.

Al: Thank you for the pen. It's -- well, it's the best gift I think I've ever gotten. So, I'll see you soon.

Jen: Very soon, for the rest of our lives.

Al: Ok, you can come out. Thanks for not blowing my cover. Here.

Tony: That's it?

Al: What, that's not enough? It's what I gave you last time.

Tony: Al, you've got some scam going and now I'm part of it. I don't like that one bit.

Al: Ok, ok. All right, here. This is all I have, ok? Take it and please don't say anything.

Max: Want to tell me what's going on here?

***********************************************

Rae: Dean Baker, I think we've all heard enough evidence to render a decision here. A young woman fabricates everything, gets her friends to lie for her. I think if anyone should be facing disciplinary action, it should be Shawna Quinlan.

Woman: Yeah, I think Dr. Cummings is exactly right.

Dean Baker: Then it is unanimous. This panel sincerely apologizes to you, Prof. Reynolds, for the ordeal you have been forced to endure. We are declaring the complaint against you to be without merit and having no basis in fact. You remain one of our finest professors in good standing.

Rae: In excellent standing.

[Dean Baker pounds gavel]

Rae: See? I got to go.

Keri: Thank you.

Hank: Hey, you. Congratulations.

R.J.: Yeah, it's great news.

Carlotta: You won! You did it!

Keri: I am still in shock. I'm still in shock. 30 minutes ago, I thought my career was over.

Carlotta: Oh, it was my son. You know, he can wax so eloquent sometimes. Is this the same young man who was tongue-tied in kindergarten?

***********************************************

Shawna: This is bogus. You know something -- I feel like transferring out of this podunk little school and going somewhere where they don't treat you like you're --

R.J.: Ahem.

R.J.: We have something to settle.

***********************************************

Natalie: You hate me?

Ben: Whoa, whoa. No, no, no, it's not what it sounded like. It's not.

Natalie: That's what she said.

Ben: No, Viki can explain. Viki, right? You can explain?

Niki: [As Viki] No -- yes, absolutely. Of course. It -- it's something that Rae Cummings said. You must not misinterpret this.

Natalie: No, I didn't misinterpret a thing.

Niki: And don't go anywhere because we can talk about this.

Natalie: No. No, you don't have time. Why don't you go see your other daughter, the one that you care about, the one that you love. She's at the hospital in the E.R.!

Niki: What -- Natalie? Natalie!

***********************************************

Judge: Mr. Manning, I see a lot of emotional outbursts in my courtroom. Let's both take a step back. I'm interested in facts, not melodrama. Now, I have two simple questions. First, did you or did you not lie to ms. Major about having a second child?

Todd: Well, of course I lied. She was trying to take my kid away from me. Who wouldn't lie?

Blair: Please, Sam.

Todd: What was I supposed to do, say, "Oh, yeah, you know what -- don't forget the other kid we got upstairs, don't forget to take him, too"?

Judge: Thank you, that's all I need to hear.

Todd: I'd do the same thing again.

Judge: Yes, I'm sure. Now, my other question. Your second child, John Cramer Manning, was adopted by you and your wife three months ago?

Todd: Yes.

Judge: May I see the adoption papers, please?

Sam: Are you sure you want to do this, Todd?

Judge: Everything seems to be in order.

Sam: Actually, Your Honor, that's not quite true.

***********************************************

Tony: I'll be in touch, Al. Have a good wedding.

Al: Yeah. Thanks a lot, Tony. Look, Dad --

Max: Uh-uh, uh-uh. What scam's this guy talking about?

Al: Scam?

Max: Oh, come on, Al, I heard everything. Why you paying that guy to keep quiet?

Al: I -- I'm cooking up a surprise for Jen, ok, and I just didn't want anybody to -- look, it's none of your business, ok. Don't worry about it.

Max: Don't try and con me.

Al: It's my wedding day. You think you could cut me a little slack?

Max: You shouldn't have to pay someone to keep quiet about a surprise, Al.

Al: Dad, if you're going to lecture me, save it for later.

Max: No.

[Al sighs]

Max: I'm not ok with this, Al. I'm not ok with this at all. I want an answer from you. What are you doing?

Al: You want to know what I'm doing?

Max: Mm-hmm.

Al: You want to know what I'm doing? I'll tell you, ok? I am making sure that I get to marry the woman that I love today, ok, so just leave it at that. Just don't ask another question, all right?

Max: You're moving your leg.

Al: Fine.

Max: Al --

Al: You want to know the truth? The truth is I can walk. I've been able to walk for a while now.

***********************************************

Judge: Mr. Rappaport, I didn't realize you were acting as co-counsel.

Todd: He's not.

Sam: No, Your Honor, I'm not. I'm simply here as a friend of the court and of the family.

Judge: Very well. What is it you wish to say?

Sam: Your Honor, I'm simply offering a reminder that there is a provisional period of one year before the adoption becomes final.

Judge: Yes, of course.

Sam: And if I may, I'd also like to add that I have been in the Manning home on many occasions and I can testify that the children are extremely well cared for.

Judge: Thank you, Mr. Rappaport.

Sam: And just one more thing, Your Honor. Ms. Major had already ruled in the Mannings' favor before she found out about baby Jack, and that's the only reason we're having this hearing.

Judge: Quite right.

Todd: You know, the adoption's legal, it's final and everything, you know, and -- and, by the way, my attorney, F.A. Dailey, he told me to tell you that if we don't win this case that you're looking at the mother of all civil suits -- and do you have any idea how much money he's won for his clients this year alone?

Judge: No, nor am I remotely intimidated. Incidentally, if you want to meet someone who's beaten daily -- several times, in fact -- talk to Mr. Rappaport. But none of that matters, Mr. Manning. You won't need Daileyís services. I hereby rule that Mr. and Mrs. Manning shall retain custody of both children, subject to ongoing supervision by child services. This case is concluded.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Blair: Thank God! Oh, Todd, it's great!

Sam: Todd, can I speak to you outside for a minute?

Blair: You did it. Judge, thank you so much. I can't believe how relieved I am. If you ever run for public office, my husband will contribute.

Sam: Happy?

Todd: Sure, I'm ecstatic. How about you?

Sam: Good, good, good, but don't get too comfortable because we both know those adoption papers are fake.

Todd: So what?

Sam: So I'm going to fix things. But the next time something like this comes up, I don't want you and Blair having to pull another fast one.

Todd: Nobody hired you, Sam, to stick your nose into this business.

Sam: Blair wants it that way and I'm going to make it happen. I'm going to track down that birth mother and I'm going to get this adoption made legal. End of discussion.

Todd: Right. Good luck finding Nellie. I'm going to make sure that never happens.

***********************************************

Niki: [As Viki] Oh, my goodness, how could I have said such a thing when she was there. Why didn't you warn me, Ben? The last thing I need is to be dealing with her.

Ben: My back was to the door. I didn't know she was standing there.

Niki: Oh, I'm so sorry. I'm sorry. Here I am snapping at you and you're the one that I love. I don't know what's going on. I think I'm losing my mind. Maybe having these children in the house is just too much.

Ben: I can see it's getting to you, I'm sorry.

Niki: Boy, talk about the wrong thing to say. When I make a mistake, I really make a mistake.

Ben: Viki, don't you think we should find out about Jessica?

Niki: Oh, my God! She said that Jessica was -- oh, I'm shattered!

Ben: She didn't say what's wrong with her.

Niki: Oh, my God, I have to go find out what's wrong with her! But one of us has to stay here with Jack.

Ben: Don't worry, I'll stay.

Niki: Oh, thank you. I'll be back just as soon as I can.

Ben: Call me, let me know what's going on.

Niki: I will. I promise I will.

[Normal voice] Hospital? I hate hospitals!

***********************************************

Cristian: Natalie, come on, what happened? I'm sitting in your driveway, trying to get my car started, and here you come running like you've been burnt or something. What happened? What's wrong?

Natalie: Nothing much. My mother hates me, that's all.

Cristian: What?

Natalie: That's what she said.

Cristian: Well, I'm sure you heard wrong.

Natalie: Quote -- "I hate Natalie."

Cristian: Natalie, I've know Mrs. Davidson since I was a kid. She doesn't talk like that.

Natalie: Well, ask Ben. He was there.

Cristian: Yeah, well, she was probably talking about how she felt when you first showed up last year.

Natalie: Cris, I saw the look on her face. She meant every word -- "I hate Natalie."

Cristian: Yeah, but --

Natalie: And she wasn't talking about the past. She meant now.

Cristian: Natalie, listen to me -- look, you're a good person. You don't deserve this. If there's anything I can do, just tell me.

Natalie: You're wrong, Cris. I do deserve this. I deserve every rotten thing that's happening to me.

***********************************************

Al: Yep, you heard me right. I can walk, I can dance, I can jump up and down. So now you know the truth. What are you going to do? You going to go outside, you going to ruin my wedding for me?

Max: Wait, wait, wait. You've been in this chair all this time when you could -- I don't believe this.

Al: Well, believe it. Here I am. What do you want me to do, jumping jacks?

Max: Why? Why? Why would you do something like this, why, to your mother, to me, to Jen?

Al: I didn't to this to Jen. I did it for Jen so that she would stop chasing Cristian. That guy is never going to -- he's never going to give her the time of day, ok? I love her and she'll love me, too, if we just have the chance. Dad, we are going to have an incredible life together.

Max: I -- I can't sleep at night because I'm spending night after -- day after day going to doctors, hoping, praying for a miracle so you can walk!

Al: Oh, Dad --

Max: I'm aching and crying over you, and there's nothing wrong?

Al: Yeah, well, I ached and I cried for years when you couldn't find the time to care about me or Mom. So let's call it even.

Max: Oh, this is insane. You know Jenís bound to find out.

Al: No, she's not. Dad, we're going on a honeymoon to Europe, remember? I go and see the specialist and, poof, miracle healing.

Max: No. No.

Al: Yeah. You just be sure to act surprised when I tell the good news and everything will be ok.

Max: No!

Al: Dad, this is my one chance, my one chance to love her, my one chance to have her love me back!

Max: No!

Al: Dad, stop saying that!

Max: I can't let you do this!

Al: You? You can't let me do this, after all the stuff you pulled around town? Are you kidding me?

Max: I can't let you do what I did. I can't let you make the same mistakes I've made.

Al: You can't stop me.

Max: Oh, yes, I can.

Al: No. Dad? Wait! Dad? Damn it. Dad, wait!

***********************************************

Keri: You were so incredible. I wanted to just cheer every time you scored a point.

Antonio: So why didn't you?

Hank: Antonio, what you did in here today, getting to the truth the way you did -- it was very impressive. Keri's career could have been totally destroyed. Good work.

Antonio: I've learned from the best. Let someone make something out of that kiss.

Carlotta: What I don't understand is how you got all the information about all those kids so quickly.

Antonio: Oh, man, it was a lot of people. I had people over at the department run their names through the computers, I had a friend of mine at the administration run a check on their transcripts, and then another buddy of mine at "The Banner" dug up the rest.

Carlotta: Amazing.

Keri: Would I sound too corny if I had said you were my hero?

Antonio: Yeah, but don't let that stop you.

Keri: Oh. Where's R.J.?

***********************************************

Shawna: Some idea you had. What a complete flop.

R.J.: Hey, I told you to drop it. Don't blame me because you screwed it up.

Shawna: Oh, is that what this is about? You scared I'm going to rat you out, tell your daughter what Daddy was really up to? Maybe I should. Maybe I should tell her that you're the one who paid me to make this all happen.

R.J.: Listen, little girl, don't you ever cross me.

***********************************************

Blair: Look, I know that Jen is getting married today and it wasn't easy for you to make time for us.

Sam: It was my pleasure, Blair.

Blair: And what you said really swayed the judge.

Sam: Well, no, actually, I think Todd did that, turned things around, and frankly, I've never seen anything quite like that.

Blair: Well, I really appreciate what you did. I know that it wasn't easy for you to not say anything about those phony adoption papers.

Sam: Yeah, well, I'm going to -- I'm going to deal with that problem.

Blair: And I also know that you did all of this for me. And I'll never forget it, Sam. Thank you. Thank you so much.

***********************************************

Ben: That's good news.

Todd: Yeah. Look, Viki's got to know that I appreciate this and, well, you got to know that I'm never going to do anything like this to you again because I'm never going to let anything like this ever happen again.

Ben: Ok. Well, hopefully he'll be happy to see you.

Todd: Well, could you blame him?

[Jack cries]

Todd: Hey, Jack. All right, calm down. How long's he been like this?

Ben: Like what?

Todd: He's burning up!

***********************************************

Niki: God, I hate hospitals. There's sick people here. Where the hell is the stupid E.R.? What is wrong with you, Niki? Like there's a rush to get to Jessica? Chill out, kid! How dense am I? I can't chill out, not with Ben around. I got to find a way to get that guy off my back.

***********************************************

Cristian: You got to take it easy on yourself.

Natalie: I'm getting everything I deserve.

Cristian: None of this is your fault. You're a good -- you're a terrific person. I mean, look how determined you were to find Seth and Jess. If it wasn't for you, they'd still be stuck in that cave, fighting for their lives. I'm never going to forget how hard you worked to save them.

Natalie: You don't know the truth.

Cristian: What truth?

Natalie: I'm a bad person. And I've done terrible things to Seth and to Jessica and to you.

***********************************************

Al: Dad? No! You can't do this, all right? We are not done talking. I am getting married today.

Max: No! You can't, not this way.

Jen: What's wrong?

Gabrielle: Al, darling, what's happened?

Max: Do you want to tell them or do you want me to do it?

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

***********************************************

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

Blair: Honey, who else was mean to Jack?

Starr: Aunt Viki.

Todd: How come you let my kid get sick?

Niki: All I got to do is get rid of Ben.

Al: I've been lying to you about my legs.

Natalie: I did something, something unforgivable.
