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

Roxy: You think you can drive me out of here? You're never going to get rid of me.

Emily: Did you tell Nora about Joanna?

Man: That beach. You'll see it hasn't changed a bit.

Keri: This photo was taken in Hawaii?

Niki: What if Natalie suddenly got D.I.D. and one of those personalities just happened to kill her stepfather?

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

Natalie: There's Max Holden.

Rex: That's our mother's new husband?

Natalie: Yeah, whatever that's about. Anyway, he's the owner of this bar, so he's the one you need to talk to about a job. Ready?

Rex: As I'll ever be, I guess.

Natalie: Hi, Mr. Holden.

Max: Natalie.

Natalie: This is Rex, Jessica's brother. He's looking for a job.

Rex: Hi. Rex Balsom.

Max: Balsom? I wouldn't hire you if you were the last busboy on earth.

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

Niki: Niki, this is, like, the greatest idea you have ever had, kid! This is brilliant! See, I just make everybody think that Natalie has a split personality. Then I knock Benji off and I pin the whole thing on Natalie's alter. And then Ben's gone and Natalie's in the slammer and nobody knows I'm Niki Smith. Oh, Benji, Benji, Benji. Don't worry, sweetheart. You won't even know what hit you.

Renee: Viki?

Niki: Oh! Ooh.

Renee: Darling, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you.

Niki: [As Viki] that's ok, that's ok.

Renee: Lois let me in.

Niki: Yeah --

Renee: Sounds like you have a surprise in store for my son? What is it?

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

Rae: You, Hawaii. It's another lifetime. Please, God, let it stay that way.

Hank: Ah, Rae. I'm glad I ran into you.

Rae: Hi.

Hank: Hi. So, listen, I hope today is a better day.

Rae: Hank, I really do owe you an apology about last night. I was like a bear. I'm grateful you're even willing to talk to me right now.

Hank: Don't even worry about it. We all have days like that.

Rae: Thank you. What are you doing here again at the university?

Hank: Well, I'm just dropping off a note for Keri.

Rae: She's out of town. Antonio took her on a surprise trip.

Hank: Yeah, I know. I'm just giving her some options for a day when we can have dinner when she returns.

Rae: Oh, great. Great. I guess you and your niece are getting along a little better now.

Hank: Seems that way.

Rae: Great. I know how important it is to you.

Hank: Yeah, very.

Rae: So, you have any idea where she and Antonio went off to?

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

Troy: It's just all this talk about the talisman -- it reminds me of someone.

Nora: Who? The Masai chief who gave it to you?

Troy: No. Not the chief. Someone I was in love with once before.

Nora: Well, it would be very sad if we'd reached this point in our life never having been in love.

Troy: Yeah.

Nora: And from the look on your face, I'd say it was major.

Troy: It was major.

Nora: What happened?

Troy: It ended. It ended very badly.

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

Keri: Thank you for bringing me to Maui.

Antonio: Thank you for coming.

Keri: You know, I think we should quit our jobs and not go back to Llanview.

Antonio: I could learn how to surf, maybe become a professional surfer. And you could become a --

Keri: Hula dancer.

Antonio: Oh, yeah. No, I could definitely see you as a hula dancer.

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

Nora: I'm guessing since the talisman reminds you of this woman, it was someone you knew in Africa.

Troy: Yeah.

Nora: And?

Troy: And I didn't treat her very well. I regret it very much. Nora, when I told you -- when I told you I never thought I would be this happy again, I meant it. You make me very, very happy, and I would never treat you badly. And I would never hurt you. I promise you that.

Nora: Troy, I can't imagine -- what could you possibly have done to make you feel this badly?

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

Niki: [As Viki] as a matter of fact, I do have a big surprise for Ben. But if I told you what it was, it wouldn't be a surprise anymore, would it?

Renee: Oh, darling, I can't tell you how happy I am that everything is ok with you two and that you and Ben still have romance in your busy lives.

Niki: Oh, definitely, definitely. But please don't say a word to him about the surprise, ok? He's going to die when I spring it on him.

Renee: My lips are sealed. But now I have good news for you.

Niki: Oh, great!

Renee: Mm-hmm. The votes are in. The Chamber of Commerce has now decided who is Llanview's new woman of the year.

Niki: Oh, I couldn't!

Renee: Viki, it's not you.

Niki: No, of course it isn't.

Renee: You were on the nominating committee.

Niki: Yeah, I knew that. I was just kidding.

Renee: But when you find out, you're going to feel like you did win. The woman of the year is Rae Cummings.

Niki: Rae! Oh, wow, that's wonderful!

Renee: And you are responsible for her being nominated.

Niki: That's right. I did that, didn't I?

Renee: Yes, you did. I'm on my way over to the university to tell her the good news. I thought you might want to help me deliver it.

Niki: Oh, no, you can handle that alone.

Renee: Don't you want to be there and see her face when she finds out?

Niki: I'll imagine it. Besides, I would love to go, but I have an awful lot of work to do. I'm swamped with all the stuff I have to do with "The Banner," so unfortunately you're going to have to do this one alone.  [Normal voice] I am not going anywhere near that shrink Rae Cummings. She's the one who let me out in the first place, and no way am I going to risk her figuring out that I didn't go back in. Besides, I'm very busy. I got a lot of work to do. Ok, let's see. What kind of alter should I give old Natalie?

[Niki gasps]

Niki: Oh! Oh, Niki, you are getting smarter and smarter! I love you, Niki! Now, I'm just going to have to start planting some crazy seeds in that nosy little redhead.

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

Natalie: I understand that you have reservations --

Max: Reservations? You are kidding, right?

Natalie: No, look, if you're short-handed, Rex is --

Max: I'm not going to hire a kid of Roxy's. End of story.

Natalie: Well, he isn't. Ok, technically he is, but Roxy didn't raise him.

Rex: I hadn't seen my mother for years until recently.

Max: Oh, lucky you.

Natalie: And Rex is nothing like Roxy. He doesn't gamble or steal or drink the profits. He's honest.

Roxy: How dare you talk about me like that, you low-level little witch.

Max: Oh, this just gets better.

Natalie: You know what? I can talk about you however I want to, and you can't stop me or get one of your dirt bag boyfriends like Greevey to do it for you, either.

Rex: Nat --

Roxy: You know, I have half a mind to sue you for scandal.

Natalie: Huh. It's slander, and you can't because I'm telling the truth. You are such a lousy mother that anyone has your last name, put three strikes against them.

Rex: Oh, easy, Natty. Seriously. You don't have to do this for me.

Roxy: Thank you for defending me, baby.

Rex: I'm not defending you. I agree with everything Natalie said. I just don't want her getting all upset. You're not worth it.

Roxy: What did you say?

Max: Ok, all right. That's enough. Hey, kid, you're hired. Any enemy of Roxy's is a good friend of mine.

Rex: Thanks. I'll work hard, I promise.

Max: Sure. You just go out back, talk to Chad. He'll get you the paperwork you need to fill out.

Natalie: Congratulations.

Rex: Thanks, Sis.

Natalie: See you at home.

Roxy: Those ungrateful little brats ganging up on me. Excuse me, baby. I need a drink.

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

R.J.: Max Holden. Here I am thinking we're friends. But I have to read about your wedding in the newspaper?

Max: The obit section?

R.J.: Oh, come on. Is paradise in jeopardy already?

Max: Don't ask.

[R.J. Chuckles]

R.J.: Well, when do I get to see the current little woman?

Roxy: Hey, Maxie, where'd you hide the jar with the olives with the little red things in them?

R.J.: Is -- is that --

Max: Uh-huh.

[R.J. Laughs]

Max: Go ahead, go ahead. Come on, come on, come on. I know you're dying to say it. Come on, come on.

R.J.: No, no, no, no, no, really. Really, it's just that that particular tiger print she's wearing is doing something really magical with all the zebra running around in here.

[R.J. Laughs]

Max: This is serious, ok? Help me out here.

R.J.: Oh, well, sure. Absolutely. What can I do for you?

Max: Get rid of her.

R.J.: Get rid of your wife, that delicate flower? You want to put a contract out on her?

Max: Oh. Oh, what am I thinking? I can't -- no, I can't put a hit on her. I can't have her killed.

R.J.: Right.

Max: I can't. It's -- I mean, as appealing as it sounded to me a moment ago --

R.J.: Well, then, what?

Max: Can't you just make her disappear? What? You're good at that sort of thing. Scare the spots off of her. You know, make her run away -- far, far, far away.

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

Roxy: Hey -- hey, baby. Look, I'm sorry about what happened before. I really don't want you to get the wrong impression about me.

Rex: Oh, I doubt it. So far you're living up to everything Natalie and Jessica said about you.

Roxy: Jessie said bad things about me?

Rex: She told me all about how you tried to scam her out of 100,000 bucks.

Roxy: Oh, yeah. Well, man, you know, that was a total misunderstanding.

Rex: Jess was real clear about one thing -- she wishes she had listened to Natalie from the beginning. Then she wouldn't have gotten mixed up with you in the first place.

Roxy: Jessie wouldn't say anything like that. I know. She loves me.

Rex: Whatever. I'm not going to make the same mistake she did. Now, if you don't mind, I'm working.

Roxy: Hey, Natalie! Hey, Nat! Where the hell is she?

Rex: She went home.

Roxy: She wouldn't go home. She has no home. Nobody wants her around.

Rex: Go away. I'm trying to fill these out.

Roxy: If that cheap little tart thinks that she can come waltzing into my bar --

Rex: Your bar?

Roxy: And trash me in front of everybody in here, she's got another thing coming.

Rex: Hey, Natalie was going easy on you. You're much worse than I expected.

Roxy: You know, you'd better think again, buddy boy. She dissed me in front of you. She dissed me in front of Jessie. Now she's badmouthing me in front of my husband.

Rex: He seemed to agree with her.

Roxy: And she is poisoning this whole town against me. I mean, it's Natalie's fault that nobody likes me. You know, I'm worth liking. And, you know, you should love me because I'm your mama.

Rex: Well, don't hold your breath.

Roxy: Ok, I'm going to stop her right now.

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

Max: Name your price. I'll pay anything.

R.J.: Well, I can certainly feel your pain, but I'm sorry I cannot oblige. I am no longer in that line of work.

Max: Oh, come on. I know you told Keri that, but you're not serious.

R.J.: Look, I promised Keri that I was not going to work on that side of the law anymore, and that's one promise I have no intention of breaking.

Max: Since when? Hey, come -- it's me. Come on. You can do this. You can come out of retirement just for a minuscule, little, tiny job. It's a humanitarian mission.

[R.J. Laughs]

R.J.: No, no, no. No, my brother, I cannot help you.

Max: Oh, come on, this living the straight and narrow is not helping you out, either. Keri and Antonio are tighter than ever.

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

Antonio: Yes, hi. I -- I would like the most romantic table you've got, please. Yes, yes, that sounds perfect. Oh, and can I get a bottle of your most expensive champagne waiting for us, please?

Keri: I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful beach. Have you given any thought to how you want to spend the rest of the day?

Antonio: Yeah, yeah. I -- I've given it a lot of thought.

Keri: Well, are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Antonio: Well, that -- that depends. What are you thinking?

Keri: That if we're going to find Rae's long-lost love, we've got to start somewhere.

Antonio: You're kidding, right?

Keri: Not at all.

Antonio: Honey, look, I know I -- I said I would help you find this Mark guy for Rae, but I -- I didn't mean tonight. And, besides, has it occurred to you that Rae may not want you digging up her old boyfriend? I mean, she tore up the photos, after all.

Keri: Because the memories are so painful. And that's because Mark's not just some boyfriend. He was Rae's soul mate. She thought this guy was the love of her life. Why wouldn't she want us to find him?

Antonio: Well, I -- I could think of a million reasons.

Keri: I'll make you a deal. If we find this guy Mark and for whatever reason we decide Rae's better off never seeing him again, she never has to know. Deal?

Antonio: Sure. Deal.

Keri: I'm telling you, Antonio, I have a feeling about this. Once we find this guy Mark, Rae's life is never going to be the same.

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

Renee: Ha! Just the professor I'm looking for.

Rae: Hi.

Renee: Special personal delivery. Hey, Hank.

Hank: Hey, Renee.

Rae: What is this?

Renee: Well, open it and find out.

Rae: Oh, my God.

Renee: Dr. Rae Cummings has just been named Llanview's Woman of the Year.

Hank: Well, congratulations. Wow.

Rae: I don't believe this. What did I do to deserve this?

Hank: Oh, come on. What haven't you done? I mean, all the people you help, your work at St. Ann's, the court-appointed sessions, everything.

Renee: You deserve a Nobel Prize for getting Asa on the couch.

Hank: Oh, absolutely.

Rae: Thank you. Thank you, both of you, truly.

Hank: You know what? Listen --

Rae: What?

Hank: I have to drop these papers off to Nora.

Rae: Oh.

Hank: But if you would allow me, I would be honored to escort you to that awards dinner.

Rae: I would be honored to have you escort me.

Hank: Then it's a date.

Rae: Ok.

Hank: See you soon.

Rae: See you soon.

Hank: Bye. Bye, Renee.

Renee: Bye, Hank. Whoa, ho, ho -- things are looking up, there, doctor.

Rae: Oh, stop that. Hank and I are just friends.

Renee: Just friends. Yeah. Mm-hmm.

Rae: Oh -- oh, my God, Viki will be so excited about this.

Renee: She knows already.

Rae: Yes. Well, of course she does. She nominated me, but -- but then they chose me. Oh, I know she'll be so happy.

Renee: Well, "happy" is not exactly the word for it.

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

[Door opens and closes]

Niki: [As Viki] Natalie. Hello. I'm so glad you're here.

Natalie: Why? You hate my guts.

Niki: Oh, Natalie, I don't hate you. You're my daughter.

Natalie: So?

Niki: And I feel terrible that we argued earlier. Could we try and get past that?

Natalie: Fine.

Niki: Natalie, I hope that your trip to the gym today helped you work out some of your anger toward me.

Natalie: I didn't go to the gym.

Niki: Really? Oh, I thought that --

Natalie: You thought what?

Niki: Well, I mean, I just assumed you went to the gym since you were wearing gym clothes when you left here.

Natalie: I've been wearing the same thing all day.

Niki: That's so odd. I mean, I know it's from a distance, but I could have sworn it was -- that wasn't you in a red sweat suit?

Natalie: No, it wasn't.

Niki: Oh, wow. I -- I must be mistaken. Maybe it was Jessica I saw, but --

Natalie: Whatever. Wasn't me.

Niki: [Normal voice] You think it wasn't you? We'll just see about that, won't we?

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

Roxy: Hey, Natty! Natty, get your butt down here right now!

Natalie: What are you doing here? Did your hubby throw you out of his bar?

Roxy: You think it's a joke, don't you?

Natalie: Well, if I were him, I'd change the lock and forget to give you the key.

Roxy: Now, listen, I have had it with your smart mouth and your badmouthing me in front of my kids. And now you're trying to turn my husband against me?

Natalie: You know what? I don't have to convince anyone that you're a loser. You tried to steal $100,000 from Jessica. And as for Rex -- well, you threw him out before he was old enough to go to school.

Roxy: You better take that back.

Natalie: And Max? Well, the only way you got him was by pouring booze down his throat. Rude awakening for him.

Roxy: I smacked that smart mouth of yours when you were a kid. Don't think I won't do it again.

Natalie: Why don't you let one of your boyfriends with the roaming hands do it for you like you used to, huh?

Roxy: I can handle that big mouth of yours. I could do it then, and I can do it now.

Natalie: All right, then come on and do it, Roxy. Do it, and I'll have you arrested like I should have when I was a kid.

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

Niki: Oh, man, this is too easy.

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

Matthew: Come on, Emily. Let's go back in.

Emily: Oh, Matthew, you wore me out. Let's just dry off for a bit.

Nora: I think my son is part fish.

Matthew: Dr. Troy, do you want to play Marco Polo again?

Troy: Marco Polo? How can I refuse that? But this time, you're it. Let's go. Whoa! Oh!

Emily: Oh.

Nora: Boys and their games.

Emily: I haven't seen Troy this happy in a long time.

Nora: I keep trying to imagine what it'd be like when he was younger. What was he like?

Emily: The same -- smart, fun, gorgeous, and incredibly popular.

Nora: Popular? Oh.

Emily: Oh, yeah. He and Colin were surrounded by girls all the time. Couldn't keep up with their girlfriends. But they went through them so fast, didn't really matter. I didn't -- I shouldn't have said that. I shouldn't even be talking about Colin in front of you.

Nora: No, no, no, please. It's really -- it's ok. I've made peace with what Colin did to me, and Troy certainly has helped me out.

Emily: When we were growing up, you could already tell that Colin was different. I mean, Troy, he was always kind and gentle. But Colin -- he did go through women. I used to spy on him sometimes. And for him it was more about the conquest than the actual relationship. You know what I mean?

Nora: Yes, unfortunately I do.

Emily: Troy -- he always cared about who he was with, you know? He wasn't superficial. Neither were the women that he was with, you know? Girls were crazy about him. It was a bit of a problem.

Nora: Why, because he liked more than one girl at once?

Emily: Yeah, but he was young then. He learned, you know. He figured it out. That'll never happen again. I'm really glad that he's with you.

Nora: Me, too.

Emily: I think I'm going to go in after all.

Nora: Ok.

Nora: Troy MacIver, you are becoming even more of a mystery to me.

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

Renee: So, who would have thunk it? Little Gretel Cummings becomes woman of the --

Rae: Did Asa tell you to call me Gretel?

Renee: No. No, the town historian did. And I was working on the -- look, I'm sorry. I didn't realize that this was such a sore point with you.

Rae: Sit down, ok?

Renee: Sure.

Rae: Look, if you're going to do any kind of biography on me, I'd really appreciate it if you didn't call me Gretel. I mean, "Gretel." What kind of name is that? What kind of parents call their kid such a hideous name?

Renee: Well, sure. I mean, ok. Rae it is. And I promise you, you have my guarantee that no one will use the name Gretel throughout your entire reign.

Rae: Thank you. Thank you.

Renee: So, what we do is I'm in charge of the catering and the room.

Rae: Ok.

Renee: Then you have approval for the entire evening. So I thought you would want to come up with ideas for speakers.

Rae: Oh, I don't know. It's strange to ask people to say nice things about you in public.

Renee: I'll tell you what.

Rae: What?

Renee: I'll take care of the whole thing. How's that?

Rae: Thank you.

Renee: Great. Ok, now, first thing -- I think we should cover your kind of whole, entire life. So why don't we start with a colleague here at the university. Say -- what's that gal -- Keri Reynolds? Keri Reynolds.

Rae: Right. Ok.

Renee: I have a great idea. Let's go back in your past, get somebody from school.

Rae: No!

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

Antonio: So, what do you expect me to do, go through the entire Hawaii white pages and call every Mark in the book?

Keri: Do you have a better idea?

Antonio: You find the guys named Mark, I'll make the calls. But maybe I should call the concierge first and see if we can extend our stay by, say, maybe about six months?

Keri: Ok, the white pages are not practical. But you're the detective. You do this for a living. Don't you have a better idea?

Antonio: I say we leave well enough alone. I can think of so many other things I'd rather be doing on our vacation.

Keri: That's your better idea?

Antonio: Mm-hmm.

Keri: Maybe you're not the hotshot detective I thought you were.

Antonio: I guess I'm not. You're really set on this, aren't you?

Keri: I thought it would be fun, you know? A little mystery story for our vacation.

Antonio: Mm-hmm.

Keri: And it would be the two of us, together.

Antonio: You're planning on wearing me down, aren't you?

Keri: No, no, not if you really don't want to do it.

Antonio: But you really do?

Keri: Kind of. And, besides, the sooner we solve this case --

Antonio: Mm-hmm.

Keri: The sooner we can start enjoying those other parts of our vacation you keep mentioning.

Antonio: Hmm. Having you as a partner -- how can I resist? And guess what -- I know exactly where to start looking for this guy, Mark.

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

Nora: Hey, Matthew, how about go getting a cup of water and putting those in it so they stay beautiful.

Matthew: Ok.

Nora: Ok? No running!

Troy: He's definitely his mother's son.

Nora: Why, because he's always on the run?

Troy: No, because he's a joy to be around.

Nora: Oh.

Troy: How was that? Was that smooth?

Nora: It was smooth. Yes, that was really smooth. That was on a scale of --

Troy: It was a great day.

Nora: It was a wonderful day. It really was. Thank you so much for sharing your past with me. I just want to know everything there is to know about you. So if you ever want to tell me anything --

Troy: Look, Nora, I don't.

Nora: Ok. No --

Troy: No, I -- listen -- someday I will tell you everything, ok?

Nora: Mm-hmm.

Troy: But for right now, I just -- I just want to enjoy today.

Nora: Ok.

Troy: Ok. And who knows? Maybe tomorrow. I mean, I don't have anything planned, so --

Nora: Yeah, you do.

Troy: I do?

Nora: Yeah, you're coming to the country club with Matthew and me. He insisted on it, you know.

Troy: Oh, well, I mean, if Matthew insisted, how can you say no?

Nora: Yeah, he insisted. You know, he wanted to spend the day with you, you know.

Troy: I love you.

Nora: I love you.

Troy: You know what? I'm thinking I should get out of here before I forget where I live, so --

Nora: Ok.

Troy: I am -- the chair --

Nora: Yeah, I see.

Troy: This way. Yeah. All right.

Nora: Thank you, thank you.

Troy: Bye, Nora.

Nora: Bye.

[Doorbell rings]

Nora: Ah. Back for more. Hank. Hi.

Hank: Hello, Nora.

Nora: Come in.

Hank: Thanks. I just thought I'd bring these settlement papers by for you to take a look at.

Nora: Oh, right. Yeah, right, thanks. Thank you, thank you.

Hank: And I'm guessing that you were expecting someone else.

Nora: Yeah, sort of. Well, not really. Kind of.

Hank: Yeah. And I'm guessing that that someone else was Troy? I passed him on his way out of here.

Nora: We had a great day. We had a fabulous, perfect day.

Hank: Well, there's that happy look that I remember. So, I'm guessing that that means Troy's not such a mystery man after all?

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

Keri: What? What did you find? What are you writing?

Antonio: No, no, no, no, no. This information's going to cost you. One kiss per answer.

Keri: You're distracting me.

Antonio: Mm-hmm, that's the general idea.

Keri: Thank you for keeping my priorities straight.

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

R.J.: Every time I see Keri and Antonio together, it makes my skin crawl. But the last time I tried to break them up, it backfired.

Max: You've never been one to give up.

R.J.: Sooner or later a golden opportunity will present itself, and I'm going to be ready. And I will enjoy watching Keri break Antonio's heart. When she does it, I hope she does it into lots of little pieces.

Max: You sound very confident.

R.J.: No daughter of mine can be confused by his egomania. She can't think it's love forever. I mean, this relationship was doomed from the start. Look, I'm sorry you can't say the same about you and -- what's her name?

Max: Roxanne?

R.J.: Right. Why don't you just divorce her?

Max: Oh, long story. Nora's working on it. She says it's going to be months before she can undo the damage.

R.J.: Months?

Max: Yeah, not an option. I can't take another week of this, or I'll be making art out of cotton balls at St. Ann's.

R.J.: Well, I'll leave you to it. Good luck with -- that.

Rex: I think I did it right.

Max: Oh.

Rex: Anything else you need me to do, Mr. Holden?

Max: No. Rex, Rex -- yeah -- no, listen, I just want to apologize for the way I acted earlier. It's just -- me marrying your mother was an accident.

Rex: I kind of figured.

Max: Yeah, well, you seem like a good kid. How did you manage that?

Rex: Well, my aunt brought me to live with her when I was still pretty young.

Max: Hmm, lucky you. You know, I get the feeling that Roxy wouldn't be so dead set on being with me if she had a chance to get together with the guy she really loves.

Rex: What guy?

Max: Oh, I forgot his name. I believe Natalie mentioned it when she was here earlier. Sounds like Greeley or greedy --

Rex: Greevey.

Max: Greevey, yes. That's it, Greevey.

Rex: I wasn't around for any of that, but Natalie talked about him. According to her, he's a real first-class dog.

Max: Oh, sounds about right. Well, listen, why don't you head home, call in tomorrow, and get your shifts?

Rex: Will do. Thanks for taking me on.

Max: All right.

[Computer beeps]

Max: Well, Mr. Greevey, I have found you.

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

Natalie: Go ahead, Roxy, hit me! I'm a lot stronger now than I was when I was little.

Niki: [As Viki] what on earth is going on here?

Roxy: Your precious daughter's messing up my whole life.

Niki: I think you might have that a little backwards, Roxanne. You came very close to messing up Natalie's life before I was around to defend her. Well, that's all different now. And I don't want to hear another unkind word about her.

Roxy: Well, what about me?

Niki: And you are never to lay a hand on her again. Not here, not anywhere. Is that understood? Now, you get out, and I don't ever want to see you in this house again.

Roxy: Don't mess with me, Chickie. I'm warning you.

Niki: What are you looking at?

Natalie: That almost seemed like the Viki that I thought I knew, the one that I was starting to be close to. Almost, but not quite.

Niki: [Normal voice] and that, kiddo, is the reason why you got to go. And now I got all the help I need to do it.

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

Renee: I am so happy for you.

Rae: Thank you. Really, thank you.

Renee: See you later.

Rae: Ok.

R.J.: Oh -- hey, Rae.

Rae: Hi.

R.J.: Keri asked me to stop by and grab her mail while she's out of town.

Rae: Ok. Fine.

R.J.: Oh, listen, if anybody comes looking for her, would you let them know she'll be back from Hawaii next week? Thanks.

Rae: Hawaii? Oh, my God. Come on, don't be silly, Rae. Hawaii's big. There's a lot of islands. No, there's no way that they could find out.

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

Keri: So, are you going to tell me where we're going or is it going to cost me another kiss?

Antonio: Ah, gee, that's a tough one.

Keri: Remember where we ended up last time.

Antonio: Ok, hold that thought, all right? All right, Rae and Mark went to the same college and the picture was taken on Maui. So, where do we go next?

Keri: The university.

Antonio: Exactly.

Keri: You really are a good detective.

Antonio: Yeah, I know.

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

Nora: Well, he's starting to shake some of his mystery. He actually told me about an old girlfriend of his.

Hank: He told you about an old girlfriend?

Nora: Yeah.

Hank: Oh, wow, that's crass.

Nora: He wasn't speaking badly of her. As matter of fact, he was telling me about how lousy he'd been to her.

Hank: He told you that?

Nora: Yeah. He just wanted me to know that he would never hurt me that way.

Hank: Hurt you what way? What do you mean? Not cheat on you?

Nora: I don't know. I guess, maybe.

Hank: "I guess, maybe"? What, you don't know?

Nora: Well, he wasn't really specific, you know. It was obviously difficult for him to talk about it.

Hank: Then why bring it up anyway?

Nora: Ok, if I thought I was going to be ruthlessly cross-examined, I would never have opened my mouth. It's a good thing, Hank.

Hank: If you say so.

Nora: Ahem. I know that you're just looking out for me. Troy's a good man. I'm happy, see?

Hank: Then I'm happy for you.

Nora: Then get the D.A. look off your face. Oh, come on. We all make mistakes. God, I've made plenty of them. I'm the queen of mistakes. I'm not about to start holding some long-ago infidelity against him.

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

Emily: Oh. You sent these back from Africa. I know how much you loved Joanna. You were good to her, Troy. I mean, you never looked at another woman. I'll shut up now.

Troy: I tried to tell Nora today. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I can't tell Nora anything about Joanna. Not even her name.

Emily: Troy --

Troy: No, Emily, please.

Troy: Nora would never understand what happened.

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

Natalie: Hey. Break Bar's newest employee.

Rex: I guess so. Speaking of which, I left my sneakers in the trunk of your car. I'm going to need them for work.

Natalie: I was beginning to feel like I really had a mom. What happened? Why can't things be like they used to be?

Rex: You left this in the trunk. Thought you might be looking for it. Something wrong?

Natalie: No. Thanks. I just -- I don't remember leaving that in the car, that's all.

Niki: Yes, yes! Two points! It's not enough that Natty thinks she's going crazy. Somebody else's got to know, too, and I'm going to need a little help. I know who to call.

Niki: [As Viki] hello, this is Viki Davidson.

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

Roxy: Save it. I'm in no mood for your holier-than-thou bull.

Niki: Well, actually, I called to apologize. I feel I was a little harsh earlier.

Roxy: "Harsh"? "Harsh"? You were flat-out nasty.

Niki: Yes, well, I am very sorry, but I was holding something back.

Roxy: What, a butcher knife?

Niki: Roxanne, we need to talk about Natalie.

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

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

Nora: About your past --

Troy: I don't want to talk about that right now.

Nora: Well, I do.

Jen: What's important is us. Are we ok?

Niki: [As Viki] Natalie is a terrible, terrible problem.

Blair: Todd is dead to me.

Téa: We got to find him! We got to find him!
