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

Cristian: I'm falling in love with Natalie.

Natalie: I'm in love with Cristian.

Jen: There is no Natalie and Cristian, and there never will be because I am going to get pregnant.

Lindsay: Troy was married.

Gordon: I can tell you about Joanna, all about Joanna.

Téa: You're getting back on that raft to go home to be with Blair.

Sam: You're still in love with him.


Jen: Damn it. I'm not pregnant.


Nora: Why in the world would you have thrown away your beautiful African amulet?

Troy: I did it for the same reason I packed up all my artwork from Zambia. I have a new life now, Nora.

Nora: But they had such memories for you.

Troy: Yeah, but not all of them were good. It reminded me of somebody I hurt very badly, Nora.

Nora: The woman you told me about?

Troy: Yeah.

Nora: Ok. Well, you don't have to talk about it anymore. I understand.

Troy: No, I -- I want to talk about it.


Lindsay: Troy's wife was named Joanna? Are you sure?

Gordon: Of course I'm sure.

Lindsay: And did you know her well?

Gordon: That depends.

Lindsay: On what?

Gordon: On why you want to know about her. Are you a bill collector? Or a cop?

Lindsay: Neither. I just know him, that's all.

Gordon: Well?

Lindsay: Very. And I never heard him talk about a wife.

Gordon: I'm not surprised.

Lindsay: Why do you say that?

Gordon: If you have to ask, then you don't know MacIver as well as you think you do.

Lindsay: Then what don't I know?

Gordon: Only what matters -- who he is and what he did.


Blair: Yes, it's true, beautiful boy. I still love your daddy. Yeah. I still love Todd Manning. What am I going to do, huh? What am I going to do? Is there no getting rid of you, Sam?

Sam: I heard what you said about Todd. Maybe I can help.

Blair: I think once you've fallen under Todd Manning's spell, no one can help.

Sam: What I was thinking was I can help you find Todd.


Ross: Is that a storm out there?

Ross: Don't do it, Téa. Don't go with him.

Todd: You're right. I do. I still love Blair.

Téa: I figured that.

Todd: No, I -- Delgado, I wish --

Téa: No, it's -- you know what, it's great you got that out. I'm glad you -- I'm glad you -- you said that.

Todd: I tried not to care about her, but --

Téa: Oh, I know. Boy, do I know. But if you still love Blair --

Todd: I do.

Téa: Then it's really not a matter of choice.

Todd: Delgado, I'm -- I'm really --

Téa: Todd, you don't have to apologize. You never have to be sorry for loving anyone.

Todd: So I still need to know. You going to come with me?


Jen: I can't believe this. I come on to Al and I sleep with him twice, and I'm still not pregnant. Does this mean I have to go through this all again next month? I don't think I can take it. Another month of trying to keep Natalie and Cristian apart, of them making a fool of me. Wait a minute. Ok, ok, maybe I took the test too soon to get a positive. I've got another stick. I can just try it again later. In the meantime -- Natalie and Cristian thought they felt guilty before. Just wait.


Chad: All right! Everybody looks great, don't you think? Including you. Natalie? Natalie?

Natalie: Hmm? Oh, did you say something?

Chad: Yeah. Who you looking for, anyway?


Shawna: This is really boring. Let's go clubbing.

Rex: Oh, with whose money?

Shawna: Well, not mine. My allowance is still cut off.

Rex: Bummer. So we're stuck here all night. Six hours of soft drinks.

Shawna: It's like a kid's party. I can't wait till they break out the ice cream cake and balloon animals.

Rex: I think I just found the answer to our problem.

Shawna: What, is your sister an A.T.M. Now?

Rex: Something like that. Be right back.


Seth: How about I go hit the refreshments for us?

Jessica: Sounds good.

Rex: Hey, Jess.

Jessica: Hello.

Rex: Seth, how's it going?

Seth: Fine. I'll get that drink.

Jessica: Sounds good. Thanks.

Rex: Well, he looks sharp. But you --

Jessica: And you --

Rex: Wow. Well, Logan’s finest. Got to look my best if I'm going to get the big tips from the girls at Break Bar.

Jessica: You're working tonight?

Rex: Yeah, I -- I just stopped by to say hi, then I'm off. 9:00 till closing.

Jessica: You've already worked a lot this week, though.

Rex: Well, college is expensive. I have a bunch of books and supplies set aside. I'm picking them up first thing tomorrow, but if I don't have a payment by then, I'm out of luck, so --

Jessica: All work and no play.

Rex: Oh, so now you're calling me dull?

Jessica: No, I'm just saying that you need to have fun once in a while.

Rex: Oh, I have a whole year for that.

Jessica: Why don't we start tonight? I'll give you the money for the books you need.

Rex: Well, no way. No. I've taken enough. Thanks.

Jessica: It's just for your books.

Rex: Jess, you've paid for the shirt on my back, literally.

Jessica: Consider it --

Rex: Not to mention tuition.

Jessica: It's a loan. How's that sound? How much do you need?

Lindsay: What did Troy do, Mr. Cashman?

Gordon: Gordy.

Lindsay: Gordy. What did Troy do?

Gordy: Joanna never really liked it here in the bush. I don't know -- it wasn't exciting enough for her. But the great Dr. Maciver said they had to stay, so they stayed.

Lindsay: You sound like you knew her pretty well.

Gordy: Yeah. MacIver let me show the wife some of the local sites now and then when he was too busy saving the world.

Lindsay: What was she like?

Gordy: Oh, gorgeous. And lively as hell. Oh. Joanna wouldn't take guff from nobody, including MacIver, and they fought like two rhinos in a one-rhino water hole.

Lindsay: Oh, really? About what?

Gordy: Going home. Other things. Everything, eventually.

Lindsay: Who started it most of the time?

Gordy: Just how well do you know MacIver? Are you a friend of his?

Lindsay: A friend? No, I don't think that that's the word that I would use.

Gordy: Then pick another one.

Lindsay: How about "bitter enemy"?

Gordy: In that case, you're a good judge of character.

Lindsay: I'd like to see Joanna.

Gordy: You -- you can't.


Blair: Find Todd?

Sam: I hired a private investigator, one of the best. I've used him before.

Blair: No, Sam, call him off.

Sam: He's first-rate. Come on, Blair. You still love Todd. You just can't turn your back on that and pretend you don’t.

Blair: Well, I sure tried, didn't I? Throwing myself at Chad. You know, I was even thinking about throwing myself at you. It's another little thing that you can hate me for, Sam.

Sam: I'm flattered that you were interested, even if it was denial.

Blair: Why can't I just stay in denial?

Sam: Because you wind up doing stupid things.

Blair: You're an amazing man, Sam Rappaport.

Sam: I'm glad you think so.

Blair: You're especially amazing to still be here after I just admitted that I still love the monster. Oh, Sam. Can you believe it? I still love him.

Sam: Well, being honest with yourself will help in the long run. I really believe that.

Blair: Well, I think it has already.

Sam: Oh, yeah?

Blair: Yep.

Sam: How?

Blair: It's made me realize that love is not enough.


Téa: I can't believe you are asking me to risk my life just so that you'll have some company.

Todd: No, no, no, it's not that at all. It's just -- hey, look, I can't stand the idea of you staying here with him.

Téa: Wait. After what you just admitted to me, are you telling me you're jealous?

Todd: No.

Téa: Relax, ok? I'm not an either/or sort of gal. I'm not going to run off with Ross just because I can't have you. Although -- no, that's something I would've done in the past. Not anymore.

Todd: Oh, don't tell me. You're not actually going to try and be the guy's friend, are you?

Téa: You know, he's a pretty ok guy. He's actually a pretty good guy to be stuck with on a deserted island. But that is if -- if I stay and you go. And, Todd, I'm asking with everything in me -- please, please don't go.


[Music plays]

Jessica: Just pay me back when you get a chance, ok?

Rex: Deal.

Jessica: I am so happy you're going to Llanview U. I'll do whatever it takes to make sure you do well.

Rex: You believe in me. I don't need any more than that.

Jessica: You know what? There's the girl I need to talk to from class. I'll be right back.

Rex: Ok.

Seth: How much you talk her out of this time?

Rex: I never ask her for a nickel.

Seth: No, why should you? You're way too good for that.

Rex: If Jessica doesn't mind giving me money, why does it bother you?

Seth: Because you're using her.


Cristian: Nice turnout.

Jen: Yeah. Look who already showed up. Hey, guys. Sorry we couldn't double date.

Chad: Well, we're all here now. Cris, what do you say we go get some drinks, man?

Cristian: Sure.

Jen: You and Chad are such a cute couple.

Natalie: Yeah, he's a -- he's a nice guy. It's good to see Cristian and you.

Jen: Too bad we had to be late.

Natalie: Oh, you got stuck in the traffic, too, huh?

Jen: No, no. We were on schedule when I put on this outfit, but, well, it doesn't take much to get Cristian interested. I'm just lucky my clothes didn't get all wrinkled.

Chad: Here you go, Natalie.

Natalie: Thanks.

Chad: If you just give me, you know, one more minute, ok?

Natalie: What for?

Cristian: Here you go.

Jen: My hero.

[Ballad plays]

Jen: Oh, I love this song.

Cristian: You do?

Jen: Yes. It's so romantic. Dance with me, Cristian.


Troy: I was young when I left for Africa. Young. It was another lifetime. I dreamed of doing good back then.

Nora: That's not such a bad dream.

Troy: No, it's not. Unfortunately, I was a little bit too driven. I wasn't willing to let anyone or anything stand in my way. I would have sacrificed anything to make a difference.

Nora: What's wrong with that?

Troy: Nothing, if it was just my sacrifice. Unfortunately, I forced someone else to sacrifice -- someone who had her own dreams, someone who was very close to me. It ended badly, and I've been haunted by it ever since.

Nora: Troy, I've made a lot of mistakes, plenty of them right here in Llanview, hurt people that I loved.

Troy: Yeah. Yeah, but you've made your peace with it.

Nora: No. No, I wouldn't say I've done that. I've made a truce with myself that I wasn't -- I wasn't going to be tortured by my past mistakes. And instead, I've resigned myself to undoubtedly making mistakes in the future.

Troy: You're a treasure, you know that?

Nora: Oh, if you think so.

Troy: You are. Oh, I think so. You know, that's exactly what I need to do. I need to put the past behind me. And now with you, I can.


Lindsay: Of course -- Joanna hated it here. She probably left a long time ago.

Gordy: No. She's still here.

Lindsay: She is?

Gordy: Yeah. The final irony. After all those arguments, Troy flies back to the states and Joanna stays in Africa forever.

Lindsay: Well, that's perfect for me. When can I see her?

Gordy: No one can see Joanna now. Don't you get it, lady? Joanna is dead.


Blair: I love Todd with all of my heart and all of my soul, Sam.

Sam: I know.

Blair: Completely out of control with no boundaries.

Sam: He loved you, too, Blair -- in his way.

Blair: Yeah, his way. Which way is that? To take my heart and to tear it into little, bitty bits? Now, if I continue to love him, what then? I mean, is that going to stop him from being the monster that he is?

Sam: I used to believe so. I'm afraid I don't anymore.

Blair: Well, I'll tell you what, I can't take it. I can't take that. I can't go back there. I have to think of my children.

Sam: Of course.

Blair: I have to find a way to -- I've got to find a way to stop loving him.

Sam: Easy to say, not so easy to do.

Blair: Yeah, well, you know what? You should watch me.

Sam: Helps that he's not around.

Blair: Yeah, it does, and that's why I think that you should call off the private investigator. I want you to.

Sam: But what happens, Blair, if Todd comes back?


Todd: You're not serious. You want me to stay here?

Téa: Yes.

Todd: You don't have the guts to come with me, so you're going to try and talk me into not going?

Téa: Oh, for heaven's sakes, it's not about having guts or being scared. It's not about -- even about you being in love with Blair.

Todd: Well, then what's it about?

Téa: Ross said that you would die!

Todd: Who cares what Ross says? Ross doesn't know anything!

Téa: He knows a lot, actually. Look, Todd, I don't care if you don't love me and you never will. I don't want you to die. Stay. Please.

Todd: Delgado, I've been through a lot worse than being stuck on a raft in the middle of the ocean. I can't stay. I have to try. I have to be with my family. Hey.

Todd: Nobody's going to die. Not me. Not you, either.

Ross: Manning, you in here?

Todd: No.

Ross: Hey, look -- listen, if you're still going to take that raft, you better think about taking it now.

Téa: Why?

Ross: There's a storm passing out over the horizon. Moving away, chances are there will be some clear weather behind it. A few days, anyway. This -- this is your best shot.

Todd: You with me?

Téa: I can't go with you, Todd.

Todd: Ok. Thank God I finally get some time alone, you know, so I can think about everything. Well, you'll at least come down to the beach, see me off? I'll see you.


Seth: So, what did you tell Jessica the money was for?

Rex: Look, diss me all you want. The only person whose opinion counts is Jessica’s. You can't turn her against me. You tried and failed, so give it up.

Seth: No way. I'm going to keep on looking out for Jessica, and anyone thinking about hurting her better think again.

Jessica: Seth -- hey, guys -- you want to dance? Um -- Seth?

Rex: Uh, you know, it takes two to dance, not three. Thanks, again, Sis. Seth, be seeing you.

Seth: That's right. You will.

Jessica: You guys were at it again, or was it just you?

Seth: You gave him money, Jess.

Jessica: He's my brother. I like helping him.

Seth: Your brother is running a scam, Jess. Believe me, I know the type.

Jessica: Yeah, I guess you do.

Seth: Is that what you think? That I did the same thing?


Rex: Why do you do it? Why do you put yourself through this?

Natalie: Because I need Cristian to know that I am not in love -- interested in him anymore. I mean, that's why I came to this party with Chad.

Rex: Well, I can tell from across the room that you're in love with Cristian. But lucky for you, he can't see anything but Jen.

Natalie: Yeah, lucky for me. I'm ok. Go. Have fun.

Rex: I plan to, as soon as I find -- oh, there she is. Bye.


Cristian: Whoa, hey, what was that for?

Jen: The usual.


Ross: Don't waste energy trying to fight the waves. You'll lose your strength and it doesn't work, anyway. You listening?

Todd: Yeah.

Ross: I've been out there, Manning -- in a boat, not some Huck Finn raft like this. You want my advice; you go back to the bunker there and tell Téa you changed your mind.

Todd: What's wrong with you, Rayburn? You don't like me.

Ross: It's still better knowing you're alive.

Todd: I can't stay. I got kids, you know?

Ross: No, I don’t. But it must be something, huh?

Todd: It is.

Ross: Huh? Look at this. Told you it'd come in handy. I mapped you out a route. Follow it as best you can. Now, the currents are going to be pulling you south, so keep paddling east. The shipping lanes are southeast. You got it?

Todd: How do I know where I am?

Ross: The sun. When it rises, that's the east, when it sets, that's the west.

Todd: No kidding?

Ross: Ok, Captain. I -- well, I packed you some cooked fish. Got a lot of berries in there. Put some water in there for you. Sweater. Just kidding on the sweater.

Todd: Thanks, Ross. Thank you.

Ross: You're welcome. Well, hey, good luck. I guess we better get this raft out there.

Ross: I could use your help.

Ross: All right, on three. One -- one's good.


Blair: If Todd comes back to Llanview, I would -- I would pack up the kids and I'd leave town. I have to think of the safety of my children and of my safety.

Sam: And what if he swears he's changed?

Blair: Of course he's going to swear he's changed. Of all the lies Todd has told, that's the one he tells the most. He can't change, Sam. But you know what? I can and I have. In fact, you know what, if I had those divorce papers in front of me, I'd sign them right now.

Sam: You don't, but I do.

Blair: What?

Sam: I have the divorce papers.

Blair: You mean the ones from my office?

Sam: They were causing you way too much pain, so I figured I'd hold on to them until you were ready.

Blair: Well, I'm -- I'm ready right now.

Sam: You sure?

Blair: Yes.

Sam: It's a very big step, Blair. I don't want you ever to regret  it. You need to be very sure about your feelings right now.

Blair: If it were about my feelings, Sam, then I would --

Sam: What?

Blair: I wouldn't be able to go through with it.

Sam: Maybe we should hold off, then.

Blair: No, this is about a marriage that won't work. This is about a man who can't change. I thought he could, but he can't. And I can't live with the man that he is. Sam, if Todd comes back into my life, if I let him back in my life, he will destroy me. That's why you have to call off your private investigators. If Todd comes back, that's the worst thing that could happen.

Sam: Ok. Consider it done.

Blair: I guess the fairy tale is over. I don't believe in Santa Claus anymore. It's time for me to sign these papers.


Téa: Todd! Todd! Todd! Todd! Todd?


Seth: You're right. I did lie to you, and I did set you up. But then something didn't go according to plan. I saw how much I was hurting you and I felt sick about what I was doing. Then the money meant nothing, and you were everything. Jess, I'm sorry. I just -- I don't see that in Rex.

Jessica: He's a kid. I don't understand how you can be down on somebody so -- he's sweet and he's innocent.

Seth: How innocent was it for him to come here on a lie?

Jessica: That was in the beginning. He apologized for that. I mean, yes, it was dumb, but it wasn't evil. I think -- you know, I think he's ashamed of being poor.

Seth: Oh, no, he definitely doesn't like to be poor. But I don't think Rex is ashamed of anything.


Rex: Here you go, baby. Our ticket to a night at the clubs.


Jen: I could dance with you like this all night.

Cristian: I tell you what -- let me go check on my brother and it's a date. Be right back.         


Nora: Oh, wow. This -- this has gotta be the most beautiful view in all of the town.

Troy: I like to sit out here when I've had a rough day at the clinic, or sometimes when I'm just so darned happy that the whole loft can't hold me.

Nora: Does that happen often?

Troy: More and more lately.

Nora: Me, too. And now that I know that Lindsay’s leaving town -- oh, ye-hoo. Wow, what a night.

Troy: Yeah.

Nora: God, from here, it doesn't look like there's a problem in the world, does it? Everything just looks beautiful and perfect.

Troy: Yeah, it does.


Lindsay: Joanna's dead? Are you sure?

Gordy: Quite sure. It -- it was bad. If he's got half the soul God gave a cobra, it's killing him.

Lindsay: Troy? What did he do? What happened, Gordy? How did she die?


Jessica: Forget it. We can't agree about Rex. We're better off not talking about it.

Chad: Seth, whatever you just said, man, I'd take it back.

Seth: It's too late for that. She knows exactly what I think about her brother.

Chad: Rex? Seems like an ok guy to me.

Seth: Yeah, I don't trust him. I knew a kid just like him once.

Chad: Who?

Seth: Me. I gotta protect Jessica from him whether she wants me to or not.

Chad: How are you going to do that, Seth?

Seth: By taking a little trip to Michigan. You know, drop into Rex's hometown. If he's hiding anything, that's where I'll find it.

Rex: No. No, no, no.


Jen: Do you know where Natalie is?

Jessica: She left.

Jen: With Chad still here?

Cristian: Hey. Natalie, wait a second. Why did you take off like that?

Natalie: Please, just leave me alone! I can't this anymore!

Cristian: You can't take what?

Natalie: Any of this! It's killing me. Don't you get it? I'm in love with you!


Nora: Wow.


Nora: I used to be afraid of lightning. You know, lightning and thunder. Every now and then, that fear kind of creeps back.

Troy: Well, it's pretty far off. It's just heat lightning.

Nora: God, you have no idea how safe and warm I feel in your arms.

Troy: Me, too.

Nora: Don't tell me you were ever scared.

Troy: Not now. And not ever again.


Lindsay: How could Troy live with himself?

Gordy: It's true. Every word. There are other people who can back me up. I can give you their names.

Lindsay: No. No, no, no, that's not necessary. It's just that it's so --

Gordy: Exactly. I've seen plenty of cruelty since I've been in Africa, things I wish I could forget. But what happened to Joanna -- that tops them all.

Lindsay: Troy. Troy. I got you.


Todd: Hey, Delgado. I'm glad you changed your mind.

Téa: No. I'm not coming with you.

Todd: So you just came to say good-bye?

Téa: And to give you this.

Todd: I needed this.

Téa: Keep it in a safe place.

Todd: Close to my heart.

Téa: Good-bye, Todd.

Todd: See you around, Delgado.


Sam: You don't have to do this tonight, Blair. It's a big step. Maybe you should --

Blair: There. It's done. It's over. It's finally over. Good-bye, Todd.


Ross: I'm sorry, Téa. But I knew you'd never leave me for him.

Téa: Don't start.

Ross: Oh, I think it's a very good beginning.

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


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

Antonio: All that matters, honey, is that we're back together.

Liz: There is something wrong, and I've got to go make it right before it's too late.

Al: How could you betray me like this?

Jen: I know exactly where Cristian is.

Shawna: Oh, really?

Cristian: You're in love with me?
