 Previously on "One Life to Live" --

Mitch: I'm trying to reach Jessica, and I wondered if you could tell me where she was.

Lindsay: I don't think there's anything that's going to be able to keep Cristian from Natalie now.

Jen: Don't say that. There has to be.

Mitch: If you leave me for Cristian, I will kill him.

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

Natalie: I don't want to be with you. I'm going to stay with Michael.

Natalie: See, Cristian? Are you happy now? You've seen it with your own two eyes. I want to be with my husband, and I don't want to have anything more to do with you.

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

Seth: You okay, Jess?

Jessica: No, I'm not. Why are we here? This is crazy.

Seth: I know it seems that way.

Jessica: And it's just -- my mom suddenly tells us we need to leave town. We're going from place to place using fake names. It's --

Seth: It's going to be over soon, I promise.

Jessica: When? She said we can't come home until she's dealt with Mitch Laurence, whatever that means.

Seth: Jess, just --

Jessica: I know -- I know Mitch has had is vendetta against my mom since before I was even born, but why is he so interested in me?

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

[Doorbell rings]

Viki: Antonio.

Antonio: I'm sorry to bother you.

Viki: It's not a bother. Come in, please.

Antonio: I just wanted you to know the house is under guard per the commissioner's orders.

Viki: Thank you.

Antonio: Undercover officers are stationed all over the area, watching the house and grounds.

Viki: That's very reassuring.

Antonio: I haven't been fully briefed on the whole situation, but, Viki, I promise you that you and your family will be safe under my watch. You have my word.

Viki: Thank you.

Antonio: I'd understand if -- if you'd rather have someone else in charge after --

Viki: After what happened to Ben?

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

Asa: Where the hell is that blonde bimbo? With Gretel out shopping, this is the perfect time to get my plan moving.

[Knock on door]

Asa: Come in.

Nigel: Mrs. Roxanne Holden, sir.

Roxy: Sorry, ace, that I'm a little late.

Asa: No matter. I'm just glad to see you.

Roxy: So you wanted to see me, huh?

Asa: You bet your life, I do. No interruptions, Nigel.

Nigel: Never, sir.

Asa: Roxy, I'm going to make you quite an offer.

Roxy: Oh, you're going to make me an offer that I can't refuse, huh?

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

Max: Renee. I left a half a million messages for you. Didn't you get them?

Renee: I got them.

Max: Well, why didn't you call me back?

Renee: A more perceptive person might conclude that I might have returned your calls if I had any desire to speak to you.

Max: You don't?

Renee: But then again, you are not a perceptive person, are you? No, you're a con artist and a swindler, but you're not a perceptive one. Why don't you just get the hell out of my bar!

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

Marcie: 1,001, 1,002, 1,003, 1,004 --

Jen: Hey.

[Marcie gasps]

Marcie: Oh, Jen! You scared me! I was really concentrating! Inventory is very important ever since somebody trashed this place.

Jen: I hate this! I hate Cristian!

Marcie: 1,005, 1,006 --

Jen: This is important, too.

Marcie: 1,007 -- well, I didn't mean to seem like I wasn't happy to see you. I'm always happy to see you. We're B.F.F.

Jen: Best friends forever.

Marcie: So, what's going on?

Jen: Remember how I was pretending to be sick so that Cristian wouldn't break up with me and you said you could give me a sedative or something?

Marcie: And I could administer it myself. Yeah, sure.

Jen: And you've seen Dr. Conklin do it thousands of times, right?

Marcie: At least. It's a breeze.

Jen: Great, because I'm going to need you to do it.

Marcie: But Cristian knows you're not sick. How's that going to help?

Jen: The sedative's not for me. It's for somebody else.

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

Cristian: Natalie, this -- this is crazy. What's going on? This doesn't make any sense.

Mitch: My wife has ma her feelings known, quite passionately, in fact. She wants to be with her husband. I hope you can find the inner strength to accept that. My wife and I will pray that you do.

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

Antonio: Not a day goes by I don't think about Dr. Davidson and what I took away from him and from you.

Viki: Well, he's never far from my thoughts, and I miss him terribly.

Antoni I'm sure.

Viki: I guess the worst times are late at night when the house is quiet and I'm all alone. And then I remember what a miracle it was that we had met. I walked into Crossroads and I looked at his face. I thought, "Oh, boy, am I in trouble."

Antonio: I know the feeling.

Viki: Yeah. Yeah, we danced there. We played pool there. He was a very, very good pool player. Did you know that?

Antonio: No, no, I didnít.

Viki: Antonio, the one thing that I never ever think about is the shooting and whose fault it was.

Antonio: Viki, you don't have to say that. I --

Viki: You know why? Because no one person is responsible for what happened to Ben, and that includes you.

Antonio: Yes, but there's no avoiding the fact that I was the one who pulled the trigger.

Viki: Yeah, but that was the result of a very twisted sequence of events, engineered partially by me. And that had been set in motion well before you became involved.

Antonio: Still, I let it get too personal that night. It affected my judgment.

Viki: Come on. We're all human, aren't we? Thank the Lord for that.

Antonio: I can't help thinking if only -- if only I'd taken myself off the case.

Viki: Yeah, okay. Well, you and I can make ourselves totally crazy with guilt if we live for the if-onlys or what-ifs. And where would that leave us? Better off? No, not at all, and Ben wouldn't want that.

Antonio: If I wouldn't have showed up at the cabin that night, Ben might still be here.

Viki: Or he might not. Somebody might have died. Allison Perkins was going to kill us all. She might have. I know perfectly well that you came to the cabin that night to help me. I have never doubted that ever.

Antonio: Viki, I -- I don't know if I'm ever going to be able to stop blaming myself.

Viki: Well, I know how you feel, because that's how I feel. I blame myself for what happened to Ben because of Niki Smith, and I blame myself because of what's happening to my daughters, Jessica and Natalie, and what happened to them years ago. But, Antonio, I can't change anything. So what's the point in blaming yourself? My girls need me now to be strong and focused for them. There comes a time when you have to just get rid of the blame and get on with your life. And you might want to consider that.

Antonio: I'll try.

Viki: Yeah.

Antonio: I should go check in with my crew.

Viki: Okay. Antonio? I feel very safe knowing that you're in charge of the security of my family, and I know that Ben appreciates it.

Antonio: Thank you, Viki.

Viki: Okay.

Rex: Mrs. Davidson?

Viki: Oh.

Rex: Can I talk to you?

Viki: Yeah. I need to talk to you, too, actually. Have you seen Natalie? I'm trying to reach her.

Rex: No, I havenít. But the truth is right now I'm a lot more interested in where Jessica is.

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

Seth: Look, Jess, your mother is just trying to protect you, okay? This Laurence guy -- he's a complete psycho.

Jessica: Who's obsessed with our family.

Seth: Exactly, and your mom doesn't want him coming after you.

Jessica: So we have to spend our lives in hiding?

Seth: Well, just for now, but, yeah.

Jessica: No. There is more to it.

Viki: Seth, you can't tell Jessica this, ever. I will tell her myself as soon as I figure out how I'm going to deal with it. I have to keep Jessica far away from Mitch Laurence. He's her father.

Seth: Look, look, the point is, Jess, your mother loves you, okay, and so do I, more than anything.

Jessica: I know that.

Seth: And I'm not going to let anyone hurt you. I'll die before I let that happen.

Jessica: No, no, no. Don't do that.

Seth: I'll try not to. But we're going to get through this, okay, together. Where's that smile I love so much, huh? You know, we do have a problem, though.

Jessica: We do?

Seth: Yeah, yeah. You see, we're all alone in this romantic place, far away from everyone and everything, and we haven't even taken advantage of it yet.

Jessica: Any idea as to how we can?

Seth: I can think of a few things.

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

Cristian: Natalie, what's going on?

Natalie: I told you, Cristian. Michael and I are meant to be together.

Cristian: What about us?

Natalie: There is no us. You're still with Jen.

Cristian: We talked about that. I told you I'm going to handle her.

Mitch: My wife tells me that you still have some feelings for her.

Cristian: "Feelings"? I'm in love with her.

Mitch: And perhaps she even had some feeling for you at some time, but she's made her choice. Natalie has chosen to honor and commit herself to her marriage, to live in God's light and grace. I really think there's nothing more to say about it.

Natalie: Michael's right. You should go.

Cristian: Natalie, you got to listen to me.

Natalie: No, Cristian, I want you to go, and I don't want to have anything more to do with you.

Cristian: Something else is going on here. There has to be.

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

Marcie: So you want me to drug somebody?

Jen: What I need to do is stall Cristian so he can't break up with me.

Marcie: Right. So how can I help?

Jen: I need you give me something that I can slip Cristian. Not to hurt him, but so he'll fall asleep, and then I can crawl into bed with him and --

Marcie: What? He'll be out cold.

Jen: I know that, but he'll wake up and he'll be groggy and confused and --

Marcie: Then? Yeah?

Jen: And then, I don't know, maybe -- who am I kidding? He's going to wake up and he's going to tell me how much he loves Natalie!

Marcie: He'll also realize he was drugged, too.

Jen: God, I am so pathetic!

Marcie: No, you're not. You're amazing.

Jen: No, I'm a loser, okay, and I lost my baby, I'm about to lose Cristian, and -- I never even got to get Natalie and Cristian back for what they did to me.

Marcie: Jen --

Jen: What -- what is wrong with me?

Marcie: Nothing. You're talented and beautiful and very smart.

Jen: Then why did Cristian cheat on me with Natalie? Why did he stop loving me?

Marcie: Jen --

Jen: Am I that terrible? Don't I deserve to be loved?

Marcie: Of course you do you're beautiful and you're talented and you're a great friend, and some men are just jerks.

Jen: They're all jerks.

Marcie: And Cristian is the biggest jerk of all if he can't realize how great you are. He is the loser, Jen, not you.

Jen: I think I know what I have to do.

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

Max: Where is this coming from? What did I do?

Renee: Nothing. Nothing, nothing. You are a perfect human being.

Max: Renee, I'm serious. What did I do?

Renee: For starters, you pretended for months to be my son when you werenít.

Max: That was three years ago. I thought we were getting past that.

Renee: Max, I can't get past it. My real son was shot. My real son is in a real coma, and he may never come out of it.

Max: Renee --

Renee: I lost a lot of precious time with him, and it may never come back because of you, Max.

Max: I never thought of it that way.

Renee: Well, maybe you should think of it that way now. You knew that ben was my son and you robbed me of the time with him because you wanted money. All because you wanted to get your hands on Asaís money.

Max: You're right. What I did to you was unforgivable. I just want you to know I'm so sorry.

Renee: I've always loved you, Max. It's as if I lost two sons. Maybe that -- maybe that's why it hurts so much.

Max: I love you, too. And if I could give you back your time with Ben or get him out of the coma, I'd do it in a heartbeat, but I canít. All I can do is just say I'm sorry. I'm so truly sorry.

Renee: Max, Max, I know -- I know you're sorry.

Max: Yeah.

Renee: Max, it's a crazy time. Why don't you tell me why you were trying to get a hold of me?

Max: It doesn't seem all that important right now.

Renee: No, please, please. Tell me.

Max: Well -- well, there might be a way I can help you. Not that it'll make up for what's going on with Ben, but --

Renee: What is it?

Max: I can help you get Gretel Rae Buchanan out of Asaís life.

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

Nigel: Madam, you're home. Oh, rather earlier than expected. Mr. Buchanan is very busy at the moment.

Rae: Well, I'm sure he can spare just a few minutes for his wife.

Nigel: Oh, no, I do apologize, but he really cannot be disturbed. I mustn't have him be disturbed.

Rae: Really? I'd like to see you stop me.

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

Roxy: Hey, hold it, Ace. You know, before you make me some fabulous offer that I can't refuse, you know, I just want to thank you, you know -- the gambling at your little lodge? I mean, that was better than any lucky roll that I ever had in Atlantic City.

Asa: Except for the getting arrested part.

Roxy: No sweat. You know, I've been arrested a lot of times in A.C.

Asa: For what? Gambling's legal there.

Roxy: Drunk and disorderly, indecent exposure, swimming in the fountain -- you name it.

Asa: But you didn't spill your guts to the cops, right?

Roxy: Hey, look, I didn't know those guys at Rodiís, that they were off-duty cops, and, you know, they'd call Bo and that we'd both end up in the clink.

Asa: Well, my son plays it by the book.

Roxy: Yeah. That's why I brought you this little gift.

Asa: Oh, wow. That's my favorite brand.

Roxy: Yeah, well, you know, nothing gets by me. I watched you slugging it down at your little casino.

Asa: This doesn't come cheap.

Roxy: No, I took from Maxie's bar. His regular customers -- they like the cheap stuff, so I don't think he's going to miss it.

Asa: I tell you, I like your style. You're really something else, Roxy.

Nigel: Wait --

Rae: Your butler need-- well. Isn't this interesting? What is she doing here?

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

Marcie: So what are you going to do?

Jen: The only thing I can do. I'm going to go home and see Cristian.

Marcie: Then what?

Jen: I'll listen. I'll listen to him tell me how much he loves Natalie, worships her, adores her and not me. And then it'll be over.

Marcie: You're giving up?

Jen: What choice do I have, you know? The baby was my only hope, and it's gone.

Marcie: Well, you're at least going to tell Cristian off, aren't you?

Jen: You better believe it. I'm going to tell him exactly what I think of him and his precious Natalie.

Marcie: They should both be ashamed of themselves.

Jen: They are nothing but lying, cheating cowards who didn't have the guts to face up to what they were doing. They had to sneak behind my back.

Marcie: You can do so much better than Cristian Vega.

Jen: The one thing I'm never going to tell Cristian is that the baby wasn't his. I want him to suffer over that baby's death for the rest of his life.

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

Mitch: You made the right decision, Darling. You should be very proud of yourself. You just saved Cristianís life.

Natalie: I hate you for what you just made me do.

Mitch: You don't mean that.

Natalie: Oh. Cristian seeing us together broke his heart. Did you not see his face?

Mitch: Priceless, hmm?

Natalie: I lied to Cristian. I had to make him think that I wanted to stay married to you.

Mitch: And very convincingly, I might add. That kiss was especially effective.

Natalie: I held up my end of the deal. Now, how do I know you're going to hold up yours? How do I know that you are not going to hurt Cristian?

Mitch: You donít.

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

Rex: Lois said that Jessica went away somewhere? With Seth?

Viki: Yeah, she did.

Rex: Where'd they go?

Viki: I don't actually know. It's a trip that apparently was planned a while ago. I'm sorry; you'll have to excuse me. I have to find Natalie.

Rex: Do you know when they'll be back?

Viki: No, I donít.

Rex: But what's Seth thinking? I mean, taking Jess away now. What about school? Finals are coming up.

Viki: Well, I expect they'll be back in time for finals, and if they're not, Jess is a grownup. She makes her own decisions, right?

Rex: Except Seth probably pressured her into it.

Viki: I don't think so.

Rex: Hey, I like Seth and all, but he's not exactly Mr. Work Ethic. I mean, he doesn't care about school or about anything much, except having a good time.

Viki: You don't like Seth at all, do you?

Rex: He's okay. I just worry about Jess. I mean, you don't want to let him drag Jessica down with him, right?

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

Seth: Jess, you know, I hate that we're here because you need protecting from Mitch Laurence, but I have to admit, I've thought about you and I just taking off like this, just traveling from place to place, maybe even starting a whole new life someplace else.

Jessica: You never told me that.

Seth: Yeah, well, the trouble is, where would I take you? I mean, you've been all around the world. I've spent my whole life living in Pennsylvania.

Jessica: Seth --

Seth: You know, when I was in reform school, I used to stare out the window at the birds flying by, and I used to think, man, they are so lucky. They can just take off and see anyplace they want to. I promised myself I would see the whole world someday.

Jessica: Where would you go?

Seth: You name it. Amsterdam, Barcelona, Hong Kong, the -- anywhere. And I'd want to see it all with you. And who knows? Maybe when all this is over, we can actually do it.

Jessica: Yeah. I would love that -- someday, not now. We have school and --

Seth: Well, yeah, I know, of course we'd have to finish school first, but it's only a couple years away. And I'd make sure you'd see your family as much as possible. Your happiness comes first with me, Jess, always.

Jessica: I don't know what to say. I feel so lucky.

Seth: I'm the lucky one, Jess.

[Jessica chuckles]

Jessica: I better call my mom. It's getting late, right? She's probably worried. Oh, I have three text messages. They're all from Mitch.

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

Mitch: I'm afraid there's no way you can know for an absolute certainty that I won't harm Cristian. I guess you'll just have to take my word for it.

Natalie: Your word doesn't mean a damn to me.

Mitch: O, ye of little faith.

Natalie: Yeah, and neither is your so-called faith. All you care about is power and revenge -- power over me and revenge over my mother.

Mitch: Well, those aren't the only things I care about. There's also the money. I mean after all, as a Buchanan heir, you're a very rich woman. Yes, and you can make me a very rich man.

Natalie: So that's what this is about. You want my money.

Mitch: Well, money grants us the freedom to do so many things.

Natalie: Then you're not getting a dime of it, not until I know that Cristian is safe. Until then, we have nothing more to talk about.

Mitch: I beg to differ. There is still one other thing I want from you.

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

[Knock on door]

Antonio: Whoa! What happened here?

Cristian: I lost it.

Antonio: Oh, so your conversation with Jen went good?

Cristian: Oh, yeah, it went great.

Antonio: Yeah?

Cristian: Yeah. Yeah, I told her that the marriage was off.

Antonio: How'd she take it?

Cristian: She told me that she wasn't feeling well. The miscarriage.

Antonio: Right. But you told her about you and Natalie?

Cristian: No, no, I didn't tell her. She never even gave me the chance, man. But you know what? It doesn't matter.

Antonio: Look, I -- so why are you acting so strange?

Cristian: Because there is no Natalie and me, Antonio, not anymore.

Antonio: Oh, so that's why this happened. Okay, look, you told me that Natalie had something to deal with before you guys could be together, but I thought it wasn't going to be a problem.

Cristian: So did I.

Antonio: So?

Cristian: So, I guess I was wrong.

Antonio: I don't get it.

Cristian: Yeah, well, get this -- Natalieís married.

Antonio: Really? What? You're kidding. To who?

Cristian: Some creep named Michael Lazarus.

Antonio: Okay, look, relax, okay? I mean, why would she marry --

Cristian: It was all a huge mistake to begin with. Natalie thought that I was marrying Jen, that I married her, right? It was, like, this crazy impulse thing.

Antonio: You know, that's one hell of an impulse.

Cristian: Yeah, tell me about it. But then we talked about, you know, everything that happened at the wedding, you know, that I wasn't going to marry Jen, and everything was cool, man. We were going to be together. And she was supposed to tell this Michael guy that their marriage was over.

Antonio: Sounds good. So what happened?

Cristian: I don't know, man. All of a sudden she decides she wants to stay with the guy. I mean, she kissed him in front of me, man. I swear, I felt like grabbing that guy by the neck and strangling him.

Antonio: Wait, wait, she kissed him?

Cristian: Yeah. You know what the worst about it is? She initiated the kiss. It's like she was doing it just to hurt me.

Antonio: Well, I mean, is she in love with this guy?

Cristian: No! She can't be! She's in love with me! I know it, man. Look, she says she loves this guy as a friend, and I get that, you know? He helped her out. He made her feel better when, you know, everything that was going on with Jen and me. But to stay married to him?

Antonio: Well, Cris, she's got to have a reason.

Cristian: You're right. And I'm going to find out what it is.

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

Rae: Why is Roxanne Balsom in your study?

Roxy: It's Holden, Dr. Know-nothing, Ms. Woman of no year whatsoever.

Rae: All right. I thought you couldn't stand her.

Asa: I despise this two-bit baby snatcher.

Roxy: Baby snatcher? I didn't snatch any baby. It was Wally.

Asa: You put my Jessie through hell! That's why I called her over here -- to let her know I'm not letting her getting away with what she did. You messed with the wrong people, lady. You hurt a Buchanan. You're going to pay for it!

Roxy: Yeah, but --

Asa: Sit down! I got whole lot more to say to you.

Rae: Well, okay. I guess I'll leave the two of you alone, but, first, would you sign this, please?

Asa: What the hell is this?

Rae: Oh, well, a letter of recommendation. You're nominating me for the hospital board.

Asa: Board of directors? Why would you want that?

Rae: Because I want to pay back those stuffed shirts who got me fired. Actually, I can't wait to see the look on their faces when I walk in that first day. And, Asa, just think about it. We'll be working side by side. Now, won't that be fun?

Asa: Oh yeah, yeah. That'd be as much fun as a root canal.

Rae: Hey, hey, hey. Let us not forget our marital duties. Make me happy, give me everything I want, or you know what.

Asa: Okay. What the hell do I care?

Rae: You know what, Honey? You really shouldn't be drinking this early in the day. But then again, what the hell do I care? Thank you. Nigel, let's go.

Nigel: Yes --

Rae: Shut the door.

Nigel: Oh, yeah.

Asa: You see what the hell I have to do deal with, huh?

Roxy: What the heck is going on here? Did you really call me here to yell at me?

Asa: Not on your life, Roxy!

Roxy: So then why'd you lie to your wife?

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

Renee: You have a plan to get Rae out of Asaís life?

Max: He's miserable with the woman.

Renee: Yeah, well, one might say, "You make your bed, you got to lie in it." And why do you care if he's miserable?

Max: Asa and I have a deal going.

Renee: Oh, boy. You and Asa have a deal?

Max: Yeah, we -- we agreed to help each other with our marital problems. You know, he helps me get rid of Roxy, and in return --

Renee: You help him get rid of Rae.

Max: Exactly. Now, I have this great idea to get Rae to leave him, but for it to work, I need your help.

Renee: What makes you think that I would want to participate in a plan that you and Asa had? And why would I agree to help you get Rae out Asaís life?

Max: Because you still love him.

Renee: What makes you think that?

Max: I can't say I understand it, Renee. But I do know you. And I do know that you're still in love with him.

Renee: Why don't you tell me about this idea of yours?

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

Jessica: They came in a few hours ago, but my cell phone was turned off.

Seth: Well, what do they say?

Jessica: They all pretty much say the same thing -- that he wants to see me. He wants to get together and talk. What's there to talk about? And what makes him even think that I'd want to talk to him?

Seth: This guy's out of his mind.

Jessica: I just -- I wish he would leave me alone.

Seth: Hey, you know, Jess, this is a good sign, actually.

Jessica: How?

Seth: Well, obviously, Mitch Laurence has no idea where we are, so, you know, he wouldn't be trying so hard to get in touch with you if he did, right?

Jessica: Instead, he'd be following us? Yeah.

Seth: Look, the important thing is to just ignore his messages, okay?

Jessica: I just -- I don't understand what Mitch Laurence would want from me. I got to call my mom.

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

Viki: Rex, I really appreciate your concern for Jess, but I know for a fact that Seth loves her, and I don't believe he's dragging her down.

Rex: Well, if he loves her so much, he has a funny way of showing it.

[Phone rings]

Viki: Excuse me. I have to get that.

Rex: If it's Jessica, can I talk to her?

Viki: If it's -- whoever it is, it's private.

[Ring]

Viki: Jessie? You all right?

Jessica: Mom, it's so good to hear your voice. I'm fine.

Viki: Oh, God.

Jessica: Mitch Laurence keeps sending text messages to my cell.

Viki: You're not answering him, are you?

Jessica: No.

Viki: Oh, good.

Jessica: What about Natalie? Has he tried to contact her?

Viki: I don't think so, no.

Jessica: But she's safe, right? You got her out of Llanview, like me? Mom?

Viki: I'm right here, Darling.

Jessica: Natalie did leave town, right?

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

Renee: Thanks.

Max: Pretty genius, huh?

Nee: Hmm. It has possibilities, maybe.

Max: Well, are you onboard? Are you going to help me?

Renee: I don't know, Max. I mean, if I go down that road, I'm sinking as low as Rae. I don't -- I don't know.

Max: Well, you better make your mind up quick. According to Nigel, Raeís supposed to be having a meeting here today. So it's just a matter of -- speak of the devil.

Bartender: Good afternoon, Dr. Cummings.

Rae: Well, I'm neither a doctor nor a Cummings. I'm Mrs. Asa Buchanan now.

Bartender: Yes, of course. I'm so sorry.

Renee: Mrs. Asa Buchanan my foot. Let's do it, now.

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

Asa: The thing is this wife of mine has a real ugly, jealous streak, and that's why I had to lie to her.

Roxy: So, then you're not going to yell at me, huh?

Asa: What'd I just say?

Roxy: All right, so she's jealous, but there's nothing to be jealous of. I'm a happily married woman. You and me? We're buddies, strictly sardonic.

Asa: You can say that again.

Roxy: Yeah, I know how to turn a phrase.

Asa: Please.

Roxy: Oh, thanks.

Asa: Let's get back to my offer. Hopefully, you won't refuse.

Roxy: Well, bring it on, Asa.

Asa: How would you like to have another wild time with me again?

Ro: Gambling?

Asa: Among other things.

Roxy: What about Raeís ugly streak? Oh, Gretel, I mean.

Asa: Like you said, why should she be jealous? You're a very happily married woman. How about it, Roxy?

Roxy: Sure. Are Tex and big Vern going to be there? Because I love those guys.

Asa: Well, Honey, this time I kind of thought it would, like, just be the two of us.

Jessica: Mom? Natalie's okay, right? Nothing's happened to her?

Viki: Honey, Natalie will be fine. You just stay safe.

Jessica: "Will be fine"? What do you mean by that? She did leave town, right?

Viki: No, no, she's still here, but she'll be leaving soon.

Jessica: She hasn't left yet? I don't understand.

Viki: Well, Darling, I'll explain everything to you --

Jessica: Mom, you were so sure that I needed to leave Llanview for my own safety, so why is Natalie still there?

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

Antonio: So, do you have any idea why Natalie would want to stay married to this Michael guy?

Cristian: No. Not a clue. You should have heard her, man, going on about god's plan and her faith in the greater good. It wasn't like her at all.

Antonio: Well, do you -- maybe this Lazarus guy -- he brainwashed her. You know, guys -- I mean, people become part of these weird cults all the time.

Cristian: No. No, no. Natalie wouldn't let anyone control her like that. When she told me go, she meant it. No one was pulling her strings. It's what she wanted.

Antonio: All right, well, it doesn't make sense.

Cristian: And a couple of days ago, we were finally going to be together. And I know that's what Natalie wants. So why the hell is she married to somebody else?

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

Natalie: What else do you want from me?

Mitch: That kiss earlier -- I can still taste it on my lips.

Natalie: Oh, you are so disgusting. That kiss made me sick. I only had to do it because I had to convince Cristian that I wanted to stay married to you.

Mitch: I don't believe you, Darling. I think you enjoyed kissing me as much as I enjoyed kissing you.

Natalie: What else do you want from me?

Mitch: Simple. I want us to go upstairs and consummate our marriage.

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