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

Emily: I wasn't sure you'd ever let yourself fall in love again after Joanna.

Keri: Remember that old camera you gave me? There was still a roll of film in it, and I went and had it developed, and the pictures came out.

Gabrielle: Asa, I'm not interested in Bo.

Niki: [As Viki] you have a genetic predisposition to D.I.D.


Troy: There's something I have to tell you about.

Nora: Ok. Go ahead. Trust me, I'm not going anywhere.

Troy: Ok. You remember when you told me you wanted to know everything about me?

Nora: Mm-hmm.

Troy: Well, there's a part of my past that I haven't told you about.

Nora: I got a feeling we're not talking about stamp collecting.

Troy: No, Nora, this is bigger than that. This is something much, much bigger.


Rex: It's great how you guys showed me all around Llanview. Thanks.

Seth: We've barely scratched the surface. How long are you staying?

Rex: Hmm -- not sure. I'd really like to stay long enough to get to know my sister better. Jessica, I mean.

Seth: Be careful what you wish for, Rex. You're about to see a whole other side of Jessica Buchanan.

Jessica: Ok, hi. I'd like to dedicate this to the guy who made me do this, the one I'm going to kill when this is over.

The look of love is in your eyes the look your smile can't disguise the look of love is saying so much more than these words could ever say and what my heart has heard well, it takes my breath away I can hardly wait to hold you feel my arms around you how long I have waited waited just to love you now that I have found you you've got the look of love it's on your face the look that time can't erase


Roxy: Time to go to work, Roxy.


Antonio: You always pack this fast?

Keri: Well, I figured the sooner I was ready, the sooner you would tell me where we're going. Not that I don't have a few hints.

Antonio: Like what?

Keri: Well, you didn't ask me to bring a passport, so I know we're not leaving the states.

Antonio: Good thinking, Det. Reynolds.

Keri: Mm-hmm. And you didn't ask me to pack a parka, so I assume we're not vacationing in Fairbanks.

Antonio: Maybe some other time.

Keri: And the way you kept mentioning a bathing suit indicates that there'll be some water involved?

Antonio: Or maybe I just want to see you in a bathing suit.

Keri: So? Are you going to tell me where we're going?

Antonio: Close your eyes.

Keri: Oh, that tickles.

Antonio: Open.

Keri: Hawaii. We're going to Hawaii?

[Keri screams]


Rae: Natalie. Natalie? Hi.

Natalie: Oh, hi.

Rae: You sounded so upset on the phone. What is it?

Natalie: Well, maybe something. Maybe nothing. Depends on what you tell me in the next few minutes.


Bo: Uh --

Gabrielle: Hi.

Bo: Hi. You know, Gabrielle, that date that I had tonight?

Gabrielle: Yeah?

Bo: It's still on.

Gabrielle: Oh, I know. I know. Asa did all this for you and your date.

Bo: Pa? He -- he did all this?

Gabrielle: Yes. It's very generous of him, don't you think?

Bo: Yeah. Just for a minute there, I thought maybe --

Gabrielle: You thought that I had something to do with this? Well, to be honest with you, my taste tends towards a night on the town. And, well, hence the dress. You actually caught me on the way out. I thought I'd give you a little private roommate time.

Bo: Ah. Well, it's just, you know, today has been a day of misunderstandings.

Gabrielle: Oh, what else happened?


Niki: Dumb. Just dumb, dumb, dumb. I really screwed things up with Bo. Man, I should've known he'd never fool around with his brother's wife.

Viki: And you should've known that Ben will never, ever leave me. We took a vow -- "till death do us part."

Niki: Yeah, well, you're half dead already. And as for big Ben, that can be arranged.

Viki: You wouldn't dare.

Niki: Try me, kid! I got to get him out of the picture somehow and hitting on Bo didn't pan out, so --

Viki: I won't let you.

Niki: You can't stop me. And knowing that a part of you killed your own husband -- that would, like, totally finish you off. And I'd be rid of you for good!

Viki: Niki --

Ben: Viki?

Niki: [As Viki] oh! Whoo!

Ben: Looks like you're here, lost in your own thoughts.

Niki: Yeah.

Ben: Well, I hope they're happy ones.

Niki: Oh. Oh, yes. Oh, very happy.


Natalie: Look, I know Viki's got this whole multiple personality thing, and I did this research on the net for it.

Rae: Sit down. Well, if it's because you're worried about her, you don't have to be. You know, she's perfectly healthy now.

Natalie: That's great, but that's not what I mean.

Rae: What do you mean?

Natalie: Look, all the research that I've done -- it says nothing about it being -- about the D.I.D. being hereditary.

Rae: That's because it's not.

Natalie: It isn't?

Rae: No. D.I.D. is the result of traumatic abuse suffered at a very early age, and it's almost always over an extended period of time.

Natalie: Ok, you mean, like, a really bad childhood, right?

Rae: Well, no, I don't exactly mean that. I mean a hideous abuse, far more than normal childhood experience.

Natalie: You mean, Viki -- she went through something that bad?

Rae: Yes. Oh, yes. And, Natalie, I know about your childhood. I know it was bad, but it wasn't that bad.

Natalie: Ok. So you're telling me that I'm not going to turn into some army of Natalie's, right?

Rae: No, and certainly not because your mother did. Whoever told you that is mistaken.

Natalie: Or lying.

Rae: Well, I mean, whatever was said, I'm sure it was a misunderstanding. I can't imagine anybody being that cruel.

Natalie: Neither can I.


Ben: So, tell me about these happy thoughts of yours.

Niki: [As Viki] who wants to know?

Ben: Your husband.

Niki: And why should I tell him?

Ben: Well, because if you don't, I just may never let you go.

Niki: Ah. In that case, I think you better guess.

Ben: Oh. Ok, well, let's see -- you're happy because you get to be with me day in and day out.

Niki: Oh, you're close.

Ben: You're happy because you get to be with me right now, all alone.

Niki: You are so close.

Ben: Oh, I don't know. I give up. I have no idea.

Niki: I was thinking that you might be the only person who could figure out who I really am.

Ben: Who are you?

Niki: [As herself] I'm Niki smith, and you're dead!

Bo: Viki, I'd like to ask you a few --

Niki: [As Viki] oh, Bo. He flew into a horrible rage, worse than ever. He came at me!

Antonio: You feared for your life?

Niki: Very much.

Bo: So you killed Ben in self-defense?

Niki: That's exactly how it happened.

Antonio: Well, there's only one problem with that story, Mrs. Davidson. Mr. Davidson's been stabbed in the back. And that's not self-defense. That's murder.

Niki: [As Viki] I was actually thinking about that lovely, lovely bath you were fixing for me.

Ben: Oh, right. Yeah, well, my pager went off before I could get to the tub, so it looks like I do have to go in to the clinic.

Niki: Oh.

Ben: Yeah.

Niki: How disappointing.

Ben: Because of this heat wave, we have a lot of emergencies.

Niki: Oh.

Ben: But I'll get back as soon as I can.

Niki: Ok.

Ben: Then we can plan out the rest of our evening and plan out the rest of our lives.

Niki: [As herself] Benji -- ahem -- if I were you, I wouldn't be making any long-range plans.


Keri: I still cannot believe we're going to Hawaii. This looks incredible.

Antonio: Oh, it's supposed to be even better in real life.

Keri: Oh, goodness. Oh, look at that beach.

Antonio: Oh, hey, you know what? That reminds me -- here. You dropped this. It's -- it's one of those old pictures of Rae that you had developed. It's her and that guy on some shore.

Keri: Yeah, that was a killer beach, too.

Antonio: So, was she surprised when you gave her the other ones?

Keri: Yeah, she was surprised, but not pleasantly.

Antonio: Why? What'd she say?

Keri: Actually, she didn't say anything. She just took one of the pictures, ripped it up, and threw the rest away.

Antonio: What?

Keri: Yeah. I'm sorry I ever developed those pictures. I mean, it really hit a nerve with Rae.

Antonio: Honey, you had no way of knowing she was going to act like that. It's not your fault.

Keri: Yeah, but I had no way of knowing she wouldn't. I called and apologized, but she hasn't called me back.

Antonio: Oh. Well, you know, I mean, those pictures are from ages ago. I mean, I could understand if she had some bad memories of the guy why she wouldn't be thrilled to death, but to get so upset after all these years?

Keri: Yeah. Well, some people just don't want to be dragged back into their past.


Troy: Look, Nora, you are the most moral person that I've ever known.

Nora: Oh, God, that sounds terrifying.

Troy: Well, it shouldn't because that's one of the many things that I love about you. You're a woman of principles.

Nora: Please don't make me sound like the self-righteous prig Lindsay makes me out to be, please?

Troy: Lindsay does that because Lindsay doesn't understand you. That's because Lindsay is motivated by her own -- her own fears and her own insecurities. But not you, Nora. You're motivated by your -- by your passion for justice.

Nora: And not a day goes by where I don't think that I fall short of that, you know.

Troy: I do know that, Nora. Look, Nora, you have such high standards of right and wrong. When you fall short of that, how does that make you feel?

Nora: Disappointed, dissatisfied with myself.

Troy: And what if you found out that someone you love didn't live up to those high standards? Would that disappoint you?

Nora: Ok, Troy, where is this going? Hmm?

Troy: I've done something, Nora. I've done something in my past, something that makes me think that just maybe I don't deserve you.


Jessica: Don't ever go don't ever go I love you so

[Cheers and applause]

[Roxy whistles]

Roxy: Hey, way to go, baby! Hey, everybody, that's my kid.

Jessica: What is she doing here?

Seth: Making everyone wish she wasn't.

Roxy: Look, my two babies are out. Isn't life great?

Jessica: Yeah, well, it was.

Roxy: Hey, if you're going to stay mad at me forever, you know, one day you're going to regret that.

Jessica: And what day is that?

Roxy: That is the day when my chips cash in, which almost was tonight. I had a spat of hypoglycomo -- oh, man -- I just about nearly bit it. You know, I was, like, dead to the world.

Rex: What?

Seth: Roxy has hypoglycemia.

Rex: What's that?

Jessica: It's a low blood sugar thing.

Rex: Well, is it dangerous?

Roxy: Oh, man, I was, like, this close to the grim reaper.

Jessica: Really? That doesn't surprise me, considering the way you take care of yourself.

Roxy: You know, I swear, you know, after the scare and that, I am on the wagon and I am buckling my seat belts -- no more beer benders, no more afternoons on the express line at burger world. I got a lot to live for now. I got my real kids and I got a great hubby.

Jessica: Oh. Yeah, where is your hubby now?

Roxy: You know, I'm not stuck to him like press-on nails. You know, the secret of a good marriage is to give each other a lot of freedom.

Jessica: Freedom from what? From responsibility? From your family?

Roxy: What?

Jessica: Roxanne, you didn't want your children when they were growing up, so don't expect them to want to be your kids now. Go away.

Roxy: Ok. I'm gone.

Rex: Wow, you -- you really came down on her.

Seth: Rex, Jessica has some big time reasons to be angry with Roxanne.

Rex: You got to fill me in. Seth started to tell me some.

Jessica: Yeah, I think it's about time you know the whole story.

Roxy: Hey, everybody, you just heard my kid sing, and now you're going to hear the original.


Nora: You don't deserve me? Why do you say that?

Joanna: Troy, are you coming?

Troy: I'm coming, Joanna.

Troy: Because I know who I am, Nora.

Nora: Ok. Where is this coming from, Troy? I mean, does this have something to do with what happened between you and Lindsay? Is -- is that what this is about? I mean, I don't -- I mean, it's true. I didn't like the way you got her to confess, but you know that.

Troy: I do know that, Nora, and that's exactly what I'm talking about. You have these high standards of what's right and what's wrong.

Nora: And that's exactly what I'm talking about when I say I fall short of them myself. Hey, my -- my objections were pretty hollow, you know? I knew exactly what you were doing with Lindsay, and I didn't really try hard to stop you.

Troy: Oh, come on, Nora. You really think you could've stopped me?

Nora: I didn't even make the effort to find out if I could. That makes me a co-conspirator with you. I'm not proud of that, but I've made my peace with it. Hey -- what we did was wrong, but it set something right. And trust me -- I don't think & anything like that could ever happen again.

[Knock on door]

Emily: Troy, you in there? It's Emily. Open up.


Gabrielle: Bo, I am your friend. If there's something bothering you, you know you can tell me.

Bo: It's just been a weird day. It's -- it's been very weird.

Gabrielle: Well, it looks like you're going to have a lovely night.

Bo: Looks like you are, too.

Gabrielle: Well, I hope so. I'd better be on my way.

Bo: Oh --

Claire: Going somewhere fabulous -- I hope?

Gabrielle: Yes, it will be when I get there. I'll call you before I come home.

Bo: Ok.

Claire: What was that, the swing shift?

Bo: Oh, that's just my housemate.

Claire: Really?

Bo: Yeah.

Claire: Hmm. I admire her self-control.

Bo: It's good to see you. Would you -- would you care for a glass of wine?

Claire: I'd love one.

Bo: Ok. I hope it's not too hot in here. I've got the A.C. cranked all the way up.

Claire: Oh, I can take the heat.


Niki: [As herself] Let's see -- Niki Smith with the letter opener in the library. Forget it. Ain't going to work. I got to pull this off without leaving fingerprints.

Ben: Viki?

Niki: [As Viki] Ben. I wasn't expecting you back so soon.

Ben: I've been shot. I took two slugs to the heart. My past is catching up with me. A hit man from the mob. But someone set me up. Who?

Niki: I can't imagine.

Ben: Mother mercy, is this the end of Ben Davidson?

Niki: [As herself] That could work.

[Ben hits the floor]

Niki: But how am I going to find a good hit man?

Natalie: Viki?

Niki: [As Viki] Natalie.

Natalie: What the hell are you trying to do?


Keri: I just have to post some grades and I'll be ready to go.

Antonio: Ok, great. I'll call a cab.

Keri: Ok.

Rae: Keri --

Keri: Hi.

Rae: Hi. Listen, I really owe you an apology.

Keri: No, Rae -- Rae, you don't. I am the one who opened up all those old wounds.

Rae: No, honey, you had no way of knowing that showing me those pictures were going to bring back all those memories. In fact, you know what? It even surprised me. I -- I really thought I closed the chapter on Mark.

Keri: Mark would be the man in the photo?

Rae: Yes. He was my first love. We were students together at college. For a long time, it was a wonderful thing. We were inseparable.

Keri: But you broke up?

Rae: Well, we were broken up. His parents. They didn't think I was good enough for their son.

Keri: And Mark let them?

Rae: Well -- I mean, he didn't really want to. His father was ill. It's pretty hard to defy a parent who you think is dying, so -- so we ended it.

Keri: Rae, I am so sorry.

Rae: No, honey, please. It really was a long time ago.

Keri: The pictures took you right back, didn't they?

Rae: Yeah.

Keri: No wonder you destroyed them -- painful reminders of a lost love.

Rae: Yes.

Keri: Well, Rae, you certainly don't need anything to stir up those memories again, and I promise you nothing will.


Gabrielle: And for the main course, I'll have the chateaubriand.

Renee: That's for two.

Gabrielle: Medium rare would be awfully nice.

Renee: Are you expecting a friend? Oh, how rude of me. You don't have any. Please, I'll leave you alone, let you pick out a dinner for one.

Gabrielle: Renee, you're so wrong. I do have a friend. That's why I'm sitting here having dinner alone -- for the best friend I've ever had.


Claire: And that's the last time I dated a taxidermist.

[Bo laughs]

Bo: Claire, you are a very interesting woman.

Claire: You're a very interesting man.

Bo: Hmm. Not really.

Claire: Oh, no? All of Llanview is fascinated by you. You're a regular local celebrity.

Bo: I'm just the police commissioner in a small city in Pennsylvania. I don't think that really elevates me to celebrity status. I'm not a movie star.

Claire: No. You're much more interesting in every way.

Bo: Name one.

Claire: I'll name several. To begin with, movie stars pretend to be heroes. You're the real thing.

Bo: But not when I can avoid it.

Claire: You could avoid it completely. You come from a powerful family. You could have any job you want or no job at all. But you chose to serve the public.

Bo: I'm going to let you in on a little secret. It's the station house coffee. I can't get enough of that stuff.

[Claire laughs]

Claire: And he's modest. You'll never find that in Hollywood. But there is just one little thing you share in common with those boys.

Bo: What?

Claire: Well, I understand you've been involved with some -- shall we say -- colorful women?

Bo: I think that would be the word to describe them -- yes, colorful.

Claire: In fact, I'm kind of surprised you're not involved with anybody right now.


Niki: [As Viki] What do you think I'm trying to do?

Natalie: Well, that's what I'd like to know. You told me that I was going to lose my mind, that all these other personalities would come popping out any day now.

Niki: Oh, that.

Natalie: Yeah, that! You scared me half to death by saying what, that I have this genetic predisposition to D.I.D. just because I'm your biological daughter?

Niki: Well, sweetheart, I'm afraid you do.

Natalie: No, that's bull. Because I did all this research and I spoke with Dr. Cummings.

Niki: You talked to Rae?

[Viki chuckles]

Niki: What did that -- woman tell you?

Natalie: That D.I.D. is not hereditary.

Niki: Hmm.

Natalie: Not even remotely. You cannot pass it on to me.

Niki: Well, let me tell you something. Rae Cummings must be a wonderful woman to talk to about some things, but take it from me -- she is no expert on D.I.D.

Natalie: All the articles that I read and the web sites, the chat rooms, the case histories -- they all backed up what she said. You lied to me!

Niki: How dare you!

Natalie: How dare you. You lied to me, and I want to know why.


Roxy: Well, now I'm going to sing a song, and I'm going to dedicate it to the most important people in my life -- who happen to be in this room. And, you know, I know that I never did much for you, but the truth is I never could.

Jessica: Oh, give me a break.

Roxy: So, I'm going to sing this song from the bottom of my heart. Hit it, Cesar.

[Music plays]

Roxy: You keep sayin' you got somethin' for me somethin' you call love but confess you've been messin' where you shouldn't have been messin' and now someone else is gettin' all your best these boots were made for walkin' and that's just what they'll do one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you


Roxy: You keep lyin' when you oughta be truthin' and you keep losin' when you oughta not bet and you keep samin' when you oughta be a-changin' and what's right is right but you ain't been right yet these boots were made for walkin' and that's just what they'll do one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

[Cheers and applause]

Roxy: You keep playin' when you shouldn't be playin' and you keep thinkin' that you'll never get burnt ha! I just got me a brand-new box of matches yeah! And what he knows you ain't had time to learn these boots were made for walkin' and that's just what they'll do one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

[Cheers] Are you ready, boots? Start walking.



Roxy: Whoo!

Jessica: Let's get out of here so she can't follow us.

Seth: Rex, you dropped -- what the --

Seth: Oh, no.


Renee: You haven't touched a thing.

Gabrielle: I don't suppose you'd have a doggie bag.

Renee: You're kidding. We've got one with your name on it.

Gabrielle: Renee, even for your standards, you're being extremely unpleasant to me this evening.

Renee: I understand that Asa is paying for this meal.

Gabrielle: Yes, he is.

Renee: That's very nice of him, considering that he can't stand you. The way I see it, there can be only two explanations for his generosity -- a lobotomy or blackmail.

Gabrielle: And, of course, you wouldn't want to consider the third -- reconciliation.

Renee: What?

Gabrielle: Actually, it's much more than a reconciliation. Asa and I are very close again. Very close.

Renee: Uh-huh. You're the one with the lobotomy.

Gabrielle: Reconciliation with Asa -- what a repulsive thought. Still, if it ruined her evening, it was worth it. Oh. I still have time to go and catch the late show. I'm going to check on Bo first, see --

[Phone rings]

Gabrielle: Seems like Bo and his lovely date have possibly gone out. Hmm -- maybe I could just go home.


[Phone rings]

Claire: You don't want to get that?

Bo: I don't think it's anything urgent.

Claire: No? No police business or anything?

Bo: No. They -- see, they would call me on my cell phone. And other than that, then --


Bo: When I have a guest here, she has my undivided attention.

Claire: Oh. Oh, in that case. We've had dinner. We've had drinks. We've had dessert. What should we do now? Hmm. I have an idea.


Bo: Oh -- uh-oh.

Claire: What on earth was that?

Bo: That's the A.C. -- I think it went completely out.

Claire: Oh.

Bo: I'll -- I'll check it.

Claire: Oh, no. Don't worry about it, Bo. There's plenty of A.C. at my place. Or we could stay right here and figure out some other way to get cool.


Emily: Hey.

Troy: Hey.

Emily: The campus tour didn't take that long -- oops. Bad timing, huh?

Nora: Oh, no. No, no. I'm just -- I have to -- I'm going now. I have to leave. Because my son is going to be home. So I'm going. Anyway, it's really nice that Troy's sister is in town, and I hope we see each other again soon.

Emily: Me, too.

Nora: Ok.

Emily: Ok. Bye.

Nora: Bye.

Troy: I'll be right back.

Nora: Thank you for your honesty. And maybe -- maybe I don't deserve you as much as you deserve me, huh? If you don't deserve me, it doesn't matter. You're stuck with me.

Nora: Ok?

Troy: You're the best.

Emily: So, I better get the keys to that loft upstairs ASAP, huh?

Troy: Huh? Yeah, yeah.

Emily: Honest about what?

Troy: Uh --

Emily: I couldn't help but overhear. Did you tell Nora about Joanna?

Emily: Hey -- I'm not pushing you to tell Nora anything. It's just -- well, she's crazy about you, you know.

Troy: You think so, huh?

Emily: I know so. In fact, there's only one other person I know who's that much in love.

Troy: Who's that?

Emily: You. Now, what you tell Nora -- that's up to you. But, Troy, there's nothing about you that's going to push her away. I'm sure of it.

[Troy sighs]

Emily: Not even what happened with Joanna. Think about it, big brother.

Troy: Yeah.

Troy: I appreciate the confidence, Emily. Unfortunately, even you don't know the whole story.


Antonio: You're not making this a working vacation, are you?

Keri: Absolutely not. I just want to have everyone's address so I can send post cards.

Antonio: Uh-huh. You sure you're going to have time to do that?

Keri: Well, we'll have to see.

Antonio: Hawaii, here we come.


Gabrielle: Whew. It's hot in here.

Gabrielle: Oh. Well, it looks like Bo had a good time. I wonder when he'll be home. Hmm.


Seth: Where's Jessica?

Rex: Making a pit stop. Man, that was weird in there. My mom singing away and you and Jess telling me about all the lousy stuff she did. I had no idea what a creep my own mother really was.

Seth: Like mother, like son.

Roxy: Hey, did you like my song, baby?

Jessica: Don't call me "baby."

Roxy: Whatever you say, baby -- Jessie. Look -- can we start all over again? You know, I don't want to fool you anymore. I know it's wrong and it was really a bad thing to do, but you know me so well, I'll never get away with it.

Jessica: Yeah, that's the truth -- in case you still think you might.

Roxy: Hey, look, I'm happily married now and I care about this family stuff, so why don't you give me a second chance?

Jessica: I gave you a second chance, Roxanne, and a third chance, and --

Roxy: Well, why don't you give me a fourth chance, then? Ok, I'm your mom, and nothing's going to change that.

Jessica: And nothing's going to change you.

[Woman gasps]


Niki: [As Viki] Natalie, what you are saying is -- is very hurtful.

Natalie: You tell a lie that sends me out of mind, and I'm the one being hurtful?

Niki: I was not lying. You are my daughter. I'm trying to prepare you for all possibilities. Mental illness runs in families.

Natalie: But not D.I.D.

Niki: Well, you can never be sure.

Natalie: Oh, come on! That would've been the first thing you asked when you found you had this thing.

Niki: Of course, and I told you, I was so worried about Jessica.

Natalie: You are lying.

Niki: I beg your pardon?

Natalie: You lied to me, completely freaked me out of my mind for no good reason! Not even Roxanne did that to me. There is something not right going on here. It hasn't been right for quite a long time now. I know you, Viki. You are not --

Niki: You don't know me!

Natalie: I guess not. And I guess you don't know me very well, either. I don't just take what people dish out, Viki. If I did, I never would've made it out of Roxy's alive. And there is something very strange going on here, and I'm about to find out what's going on.

>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "one life to live."


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

Bo: You don't have to go. I'd like it if you stayed.

Al: Cristian and Natalie are together all the time. What are you going to do if it happens again?

Antonio: I can't wait for you to meet Keri.

Téa: You guys are going to love it here.

Todd: Starr, don't say a word.

Starr: Daddy!
