 Previously on "One Life to Live" --

Bo: Mitch Laurence is Jessica's father?

Viki: I need  you to go away from here. I need you to leave Llanview immediately.

Jen: I'm going to go home and see Cristian.

Marcie: Then what?

Jen: I'll listen to him tell me how much he loves Natalie.

Natalie: 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.


Natalie: What did you just say?

Mitch: It's time, Natalie, to consummate our marriage. 3DF11038.JPG

Natalie: God, you can't be serious.

Mitch: Au contraire, my dear. Marriage is a very serious commitment.

Natalie: Well, we're not really married.

Mitch: No? We have a license that says otherwise.

Natalie: That doesn't mean anything.

Mitch: It means that we entered into a conjugal contract before God.

Natalie: No.

Mitch: Oh, yes. "The man shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh."


Bo: Your ear stuck to that door?

Rex: Comm. Buchanan.

Bo: I know.


Viki: Jessie, I told you, Natalie will be leaving town soon. 3DF11071.JPG

Jessica: But why is she still there? You were so worried about Mitch Laurence hurting us so -- has something happened to her, Mom?


Antonio: Are you sure you're not reading Natalie wrong?

Cristian: Uh-uh. She meant it. She's not leaving this guy. She's staying married to him.

Jen: Natalie got married?


Natalie: Stay away from me.

Mitch: Is that any way to treat your husband?

Natalie: If you so much as touch me --

Mitch: I have every right.

Natalie: What, to rape me? I don't think so.

Mitch: No, as the good book says, "Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, for the husband is the head of the wife."

Natalie: Stop it. Stop using the Bible like that. It's sick. 3DF110A1.JPG

Mitch: I'm not the one committing blasphemy here. You took a vow before God to love me, to honor me, and to obey me.

Natalie: I'm not sleeping with you.

Mitch: You are my wife.

Natalie: On paper. That's it.

Mitch: Well, that's about to change.

Natalie: Over my dead body.

Mitch: How about over Cristian's body?


Roxy: You want to do something? Just you and me?

Asa: Yep. And the deep blue sea.

Roxy: Oh, Captain Nemo's fish and chips on highway 20.

Asa: I had something a little further in mind. Did you know I have my very own tropical island?

Roxy: Get out of town. 3DF11187.JPG

Asa: It's called St. Blaze's.

Roxy: Oh, way out of town. You got gambling there?

Asa: St. Blaze has everything.

Roxy: Do you have piņa coladas in a pineapple with a little umbrella on top?

Asa: Everything your little heart desires. But the best part is --

Roxy: There's more?

Asa: It is smack dab in the middle of nowhere. Nobody can bother us. So what do you say? You on, or what?

Roxy: Hey, hang on, there. I know what's going on. And nobody makes a fool out of Roxy Holden, no how.


Renee: Max, before we get down to business, I just need to know one thing.

Max: Sure. What?

Renee: How does Asa plan to get Roxanne to divorce you? 3DF111BC.JPG

Max: Well, I mean, you know Asa better than I do. I mean, he has his ways, but that's besides the point here. I need your help to get Rae to turn him loose. Now, are you still in?

Renee: You know, I was supposed to have a nice, quiet, little intimate dinner with him that night, the night that they got married.

Max: You mean the night she blackmailed him into marrying her.

Renee: I still don't understand why he let her get away with that.

Max: Well, don't be mad at him. I mean, she's a veteran at being a con artist. She snowed the entire town, practically the entire country, into believing she was a therapist. 3DF111E3.JPG

Renee: And what happened to Ben is the result of that. She deserves everything that's coming to her.

Max: Let's get to work. It's showtime.

Renee: Oh, leave me alone, Max! It's killing me! I don't want to talk about it anymore!

Max: Oh, here. That got her attention. This just might work.


Natalie: You would kill Cristian if I won't sleep with you?

Mitch: Did I say that?

Natalie: Answer me!

Mitch: I'm merely reminding you of your wifely duties, wife.

Natalie: Look, I said that I would stay married to you so that you wouldn't hurt Cristian. But sleeping with you is not a part of that deal ever. 3DF11217.JPG

Mitch: Oh, yeah? Saving yourself for Cristian? That ain't never going to happen, darling, unless you want to see him dead.

Natalie: Don't you dare ever hurt Cristian.

Mitch: That's in your hands, Natalie.

Natalie: You -- you really killed those other people, didn't you?

Mitch: Those other people?

Natalie: Dr. Balsom, the man I thought was my father.

Mitch: Oh, the man who brought you and Jessica into this world. Yes, he did meet a rather untimely and tragic death, as did both the nurses who helped him, in fact.

Natalie: Why don't you just kill me, too?

Mitch: Now, why would I want to do something like that? 3DF11247.JPG

Natalie: Because I would rather be dead than sleep with you.

Mitch: Huh. Well, we seem to be at a bit of an impasse. I want to consummate our marriage and you don't. What are we going to do about that?


Jen: Did you just say that Natalie's married?

Cristian: What are you doing home, Jen? I thought you were supposed to be in class.

Jen: It got canceled. So who's Natalie married to?

Cristian: Some -- some guy named Michael Lazarus.

Jen: Never heard of him. Does he go to L.U.?

Antonio: Jen, you know what? I'm sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but Cris and I -- we were right in the middle of something. 3DF1126F.JPG

Jen: What's going on?

Cristian: I just need to get into some stuff with my brother. Look, I know that we were supposed to talk and all, but --

Jen: No, it's ok. I've got a zillion things to do anyway. I'll see you later, ok?

Cristian: Ok.

Jen: Bye, Antonio.

Antonio: See you later, Jen. All right. You still need to tell Jen about Natalie.

Cristian: Yeah. And I will.

Antonio: Mm-hmm.

Cristian: But, first, I got to straighten this out with Natalie.

Antonio: Ok, well, I -- you know, I don't know what to tell you. I mean, this whole thing with Natalie and why she's married to this guy -- it just doesn't make any sense. 3DF11291.JPG

Cristian: Yeah, tell me about it.

Antonio: You know, I mean -- look, are you sure she's not still upset about you and -- and Jen?

Cristian: No. No, no. We worked all that out.

Antonio: All right. Well, maybe I can find out something for you at Llanfair.

Cristian: What, are you going to Llanfair?

Antonio: Yeah, I'm doing some security detail there.

Cristian: What for?

Antonio: Good question. I haven't got all the details yet, but I know something big's going down.

Cristian: Do you think it has anything to do with Natalie?

Antonio: I don't know. I'll know more when I talk to the commissioner.

Cristian: I'll go with you. 3DF112B4.JPG

Antonio: All right, look, Natalie might not even be a part of it.

Cristian: Yeah, I know. I just want to talk to Mrs.. Davidson, find out what the deal is with Natalie and this Lazarus guy.

Antonio: All right. Let's go.

Cristian: All right, hold on. Let me get my keys.


Jen: I need a number for a Michael Lazarus.

Jen: Ok, I'm sorry. What was that? This is the Michael Lazarus on Center Street, right? Oh, ok. 125 Elm Street. Ok, thank you so much.

[Phone rings]

Jen: Hello? Marcie, hey. I'm feeling great. Let's just say that things aren't exactly over between me and Cristian. 3DF113BF.JPG


Renee: No, just go, Max! No one can help me! You can't help me!

Max: Here she comes.

Rae: Renee?

Renee: What do you want?

Rae: What's wrong?

Renee: I don't want to talk about it!

Rae: What did you do to her?

Max: Me?

Rae: Well, she's not crying for nothing.

Max: I didn't do anything.

Renee: It's not Max.

Rae: What is it? I mean, tell me. You can.

Renee: You are the last person that I could talk to.

Rae: Renee, I know you don't think much of me right now.

Max: Understating it a bit, aren't we?

Rae: Oh, would you stay out of it?

Renee: I just want you both to stay out of it, please! 3DF113DC.JPG

Rae: Renee? Renee? We were friends once, good friends. I still care about you. I can't stand to see you like this. You can tell me, please. Why are you so upset?

Renee: All right. You want to know? It's Asa! It's Asa!


Asa: Playing you for a fool? Why on God's green earth would you say something like that?

Roxy: Oh, let me think about this for a second. First of all, you're being so damn nice to me.

Asa: You have a problem with that?

Roxy: Yeah, I got a problem with that, because you're working me. You know, I should have known something was fishy when you invited me to the lodge and everything. 3DF11408.JPG

Asa: I just wanted to have some fun.

Roxy: Oh, yeah, you're having fun, a lot of fun setting me up.

Asa: Setting you up for what?

Roxy: Yeah, to make Max Holden single again, that's what.

Asa: Where did you ever get an idea like that?

Roxy: You invite me to a remote little island, nobody there, just you and me and the devil and the deep blue sea. I'm onto your plan, Bucko.

Asa: Plan? There's no plan.

Roxy: Hey, give it up. You know, I already figured all of this out.

Asa: I just wanted you to see my yacht, maybe try your hand at marlin fishing, a little scuba diving.

Roxy: Oh, yeah, down in Davey Jones' locker. 3DF11429.JPG

Asa: "Davey Jones' locker"?

Roxy: Sleeping with the fishes?

Asa: What?

Roxy: You can't get rid of me that easy.

Asa: Wait a minute. You think I'm going to kill you?

Roxy: Or strand me or something like that, but you can forget about it.

Asa: Why would I want to do something like that?

Roxy: Because of what I did to your precious Jessie, and you're trying to get back at me.

Asa: Oh-ho, Lord!

Roxy: Oh, great, and now you're making fun of me.

Asa: You are priceless. You know that?

Roxy: Oh, great. You're calling me cheap?

Asa: I told you to forget about that. I don't blame you for what happened to my granddaughter. I blame that quack doctor you were married to. 3DF1144F.JPG

Roxy: All right, that's the first thing you got right. His creepy friend Mitch Laurence.


Rex: Comm. Buchanan. I didn't hear you come in.

Bo: Oh, I see that. What's so interesting on the other side of that door?

Rex: I didn't want to barge in on Mrs.. Davidson.

Bo: Ah, so you're thinking of her, were you?

Rex: She really hates it when people interrupt her.

Bo: Aha.

Rex: No, I'm not kidding. One time a few months ago, I went in without knocking, and she totally went off on me.

Bo: But that wasn't Mrs.. Davidson. That was an alter named Niki Smith.

Rex: Yeah. Yeah, that's right. No, I know that now. 3DF11476.JPG

Bo: So you must know that Niki Smith is gone now.

Rex: Right, but, well, sometimes, it gets confusing.

Bo: Why don't we just clear it up? Why don't we start with you telling me what you're trying to pull here.


Viki: Jessica, I don't want you to worry, ok? Natalie will be leaving town soon.

Jessica: When?

Viki: Well, I'm going to take care of it, and so is Uncle Bo.

Jessica: What are you doing?

Viki: Darling, you have to trust me, ok? We're going to deal with Mitch Laurence and then you'll be able to come home and that will be the end of it.

Jessica: Why do I get the feeling that you're still not telling me something? Mom? Mom, are you still there? 3DF114A2.JPG

Viki: Yeah. Honey, I have to go. I'm very sorry, but we really shouldn't be talking this long anyway. I'm going to call you later.

Jessica: But --

Viki: I'll call you in, oh, a couple of hours, all right? I love you very much. Take care. Bye.

Jessica: I don't believe it.

Seth: What?

Jessica: My mom just hung up on me.

Seth: Well, are you sure it wasn't a bad connection? Maybe you just got cut off.

Jessica: No. She's never done that before.

Seth: Well, maybe she had to. That Laurence guy might have been there.

Jessica: No. She wanted to. 3DF114CD.JPG

Seth: What'd she say?

Jessica: It's not what she was saying. It's -- something's wrong.

Seth: What, you think it's about Natalie? Oh, you said that she was still in Llanview?

Jessica: Yes, but my mom won't tell me why.

Seth: Well, she must know what's she's doing. Maybe Mitch is leaving Natalie alone.

Jessica: That doesn't make any sense, though. Why would he be more interested in me than Natalie?

Seth: Beats me.

Seth: Are you ok?

Jessica: No.

Seth: Well, what is it?

Jessica: I don't know. This is so strange, this feeling that Natalie's in trouble. I don't know, it's weird, this twin thing. 3DF11503.JPG

Seth: Jess, if something bad happened to Natalie, your mother would have told you, ok? She's not hiding something from you.

Jessica: Yeah, but what if it hasn't happened yet? What if it's going to?

Seth: Maybe you're just worried about your sister.

Jessica: I am. I am worried about her.

Seth: Well, don't be. She's got your mom, she's got Cristian and your Uncle Bo and the whole police force looking after her. They're not going to let anything happen to her.

Jessica: Ok, then what is it that my mom's hiding from me? Don't tell me it's nothing because she's keeping something from me. I know she is.


Viki: What's going on? 3DF1152B.JPG

Bo: Well, Rex here was just about to explain that. Go ahead. Why don't you tell her why you had your ear glued to that door?

Viki: What?

Rex: I didn't want to bother you.

Bo: Or he thought he'd just spy on you instead.

Viki: Oh, Rex. Is that true?

Rex: Ok! I'm worried about Jessica.

Viki: Why?

Rex: I really think that Seth is going to screw things up for her.

Viki: Seth?

Rex: You told me that he took her away somewhere. She has finals coming up.

Viki: Rex, we have been over this already.

Rex: Well, you're just going to let her throw away her grades, I mean, for some guy that she almost broke up with? 3DF11549.JPG

Viki: But she didn't, and this trip is her business.

Rex: Don't you care?

Viki: What did you say? Don't I care? Yes, I care. I care a great deal more than you could ever imagine. My daughters mean everything to me, and there is nothing that I wouldn't do for them.

Bo: I think we've just about settled things here. You can go now.

Bo: Don't even think about snooping around here again.

Viki: Bo, I'm so scared for those girls.

Bo: Look, Jessica's safe, and we're going to make sure that Natalie's safe, too.

Viki: Do you think we can?

Bo: Well, I'm going to do everything I can and then some.

Viki: I don't think Rex overheard anything. Well, at least he doesn't know that Jessie's Mitch's daughter. 3DF11586.JPG

Bo: Well, it's only a matter of time before it comes out.

Viki: Well, no, it doesn't have to, you know? There are only three people who know -- you and me and Seth.

Bo: And Laurence.

Viki: Well, he hasn't told her yet.

Bo: Yeah, but it's impossible to stop him from telling her. So sooner or later, she's going to hear about it. Now, I think it's the best thing if she hears it from you.

Viki: What is that going to do to her? You know how upset she was when she thought that Roxanne was her mother. It almost destroyed her.

Bo: Yeah, but it didn't because you wouldn't let it.

Viki: Yeah, and then she was so happy when she found out that I was indeed her mother and Clint was her father. 3DF115A9.JPG

Bo: Are we absolutely sure he's not?

Viki: We saw the D.N.A. Results, Bo. Oh, god, she adores Clint.

Bo: I know, and he loves her more than anything. But that's not going to change. She is always going to be a Buchanan.

Viki: We told her that, you know, when we adopted her, Clint and I. Only recently, she told me she never really felt that way until now. How do I take that away from her again? How do I tell her that this man that she just adores is not her father, but this horrible, evil man who wants to destroy the whole family is?

Bo: I don't know, but you'll find a way because you have to.

Viki: I'm not going to do it now. I'm not going to do it until he's out of our lives. 3DF115DA.JPG

Bo: And I'm going to make sure that happens.

[Phone rings]

Bo: Um -- I've been waiting for this call.

Viki: Ok.

Bo: Excuse me. Buchanan. Yeah. All right, is she there right now? Ok, good, I'm on my way. Viki, I have to get going.

Viki: Go, go.

Bo: All right, I'll keep you up to speed on everything.

Viki: If you hear anything, please.

Bo: I will call you.

Viki: Thank you.

Bo: You know that.

Viki: Hey, thanks again for everything.

Bo: Viki, you know, they are my nieces, and I'm not going to let anybody hurt them. 3DF115FB.JPG

Viki: Thanks, Bo. Thanks.

Bo: Ok. Hi, Cristian.

Cristian: Commissioner.

Bo: Come on in.

Viki: Thanks.

Bo: I'll see you.

Viki: Bye.

Cristian: Mrs. Davidson, is there something going on? I mean, why is the Commissioner here, and why is my brother watching the place?

Viki: Have you seen Natalie?

Cristian: Yeah, actually, and I wanted to talk to you about that, about her and this new husband of hers.


Natalie: You want to know what we're going to do about it? Nothing. I am not going to bed with you, and you cannot make me.

Mitch: Awfully sure of ourselves, aren't we? 3DF11623.JPG

Natalie: You want to know why? Because you are way more interested in getting your hands on my money than getting your hands on me.

Mitch: Oh, I sincerely hope you don't think I married you just for your money.

Natalie: Oh, revenge. That, too.

Mitch: No. I had desired that our marriage be more than that.

Natalie: Our marriage is a joke.

Mitch: Well, I'm truly sorry you feel that way.

Natalie: You knew that I loved Cristian.

Mitch: And yet you married me.

Natalie: Well, you tricked me.

Mitch: Nobody put a gun to your head. 3DF11646.JPG

[Knock on door]

Mitch: Go get that. I'm not in the mood for company.

Natalie: I'm not your maid.

Mitch: What if it's Cristian?

Mitch: Don't do anything you might regret.


Asa: Don't you ever mention Mitch Laurence to me. I've got half a mind to dig up his corpse and shoot it full of holes.

Roxy: Sounds great, as long as you don't use me as a stand-in.

Asa: I don't want you dead. You're too much fun to put six feet under.

Roxy: You're not just pulling my chain, are you? You swear?

Asa: On my first dollar. I assure you, Roxanne, there's nothing up my sleeve.

Roxy: So that offer about going to this private little island, it was on the level? 3DF11787.JPG

Asa: I want to make up what we -- that party we started the other night.

Roxy: Yeah, before your kid busted us.

Asa: Nobody, and I'll tell you, nobody is going to spoil this party.

Roxy: What you were saying, it's just the two of us?

Asa: Well, all it takes is just two, and, you, you're a one-woman fiesta.

Roxy: I know how to party hearty, all right.

Asa: So, what do you say we get a move on?

Roxy: You mean, like, right now?

Asa: Well, my jet's fueled and, you know, ready to take off.

Roxy: Hey, are you hitting on me?


Rae: Asa upset you. What did he do? 3DF117B0.JPG

Renee: Oh, stop being so innocent about it! You know exactly what he did!

Rae: No, I honestly don't.

Renee: Oh, come on! He broke my heart, and you were part of it!

Rae: Are we still talking about the fact that I married him?

Renee: You know that I was hoping that we would get married again. You know, I can't sleep, I can't eat, I can barely get out of bed in the morning. I don't know what I'm going to do! Oh, God, just let me have another drink!

Rae: She -- she's drinking?

Max: Yeah, and it's getting worse.

Rae: Well, how long has this been going on?

Max: Since you and Asa tied the knot, it's been one long nosedive. 3DF117D7.JPG

Rae: But every time I see her, she seems fine. I mean, she's a little hostile, but she doesn't look like she's falling apart.

Max: Well, that's Renee for you, you know? She puts up a very brave facade, and, you know, when it goes, it goes completely. She's hitting bottom.

Rae: You really think that's happening?

Max: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, she needs help.

Rae: Is there anybody she can go to?

Max: I volunteered, but, you know, she doesn't want to hear anything from me for obvious reasons. What she really needs is a therapist.


Asa: So now you think I am making a pass at you?

Roxy: Oh, come on. "My jet is fueled, and it's ready to go." Come on, who the hell do you think you're kidding? 3DF117FE.JPG

Asa: I'm a married man!

Roxy: Yeah, to a broad you can't stand!

Asa: And you're already spoken for! And I don't hit on other men's wives! Even though you could have done a hell of a lot better than the no-good, no-account thing you married.

Roxy: So then why'd you invite me along to this little remote island of yours?

Asa: A friend can't take another friend on a little trip?

Roxy: Just friends?

Asa: A male and female cannot be pals? And they think -- they think I'm old-fashioned, hmm.

Roxy: I don't know where I get these ideas from.

Asa: Well, I'll tell you, you're a little hot tamale. You must get hit on all the time. 3DF11823.JPG

Roxy: Yeah, well, you know.

Asa: So I'm glad we straightened this out. Now, you're going to St. Blaze's with me? What the hell do you want? Why don't you knock?

Bo: Police business.

Asa: Look, there's nothing illegal going on here -- no gambling, no nothing. Now please go.

Bo: I need to talk to Roxanne.

Asa: How'd you even know where she was?

Bo: I had my people track her down.

Roxy: Well, whatever it is, I didn't do it.

Asa: You heard the lady. Now go.

Bo: This involves both of you.

Asa: Bo, we're having a private conversation here, huh? You get my drift? 3DF1184F.JPG

Bo: It's about Mitch Laurence.

Roxy: Mitch Laurence?

Asa: What does that snake got to do with anything? He's dead and buried.

Bo: Yeah, we all thought he was dead, but it turns out we were all wrong. Mitch Laurence is still alive.


Natalie: Jen, what are you doing here? And how did you know where to find me?

Jen: I called information.

Natalie: Because?

Jen: I heard you got married.

Natalie: Who told you?

Jen: Cristian.

Natalie: When did you see him?

Jen: Just a little while ago. I came right over. So tell me all about Michael.

Natalie: You know what? I really don't feel like talking right now. 3DF11877.JPG

Jen: No, I'd love to meet him. Where is he?

Natalie: Oh, well, he was right there a minute ago.

Jen: He must be amazing -- I mean, for you to get over Cristian so quickly. You are over Cristian, right?


[Viki locks door]

Viki: Cristian, just how much do you know about Natalie and her husband?

Cristian: Well, I know his name is Michael Lazarus. Natalie just met the guy. He's old enough to be her dad. What I don't know is why suddenly Natalie decides that she wants to stay with him.

Viki: She told you that?

Cristian: Yeah, yeah, and I don't get it. She loves me. I mean, we love each other and we were going to be together as soon as I tell Jen and she tells this Michael guy. But then she does a 180 and decided she wanted to stay with him. 3DF118A7.JPG

Viki: Oh, when was this?

Cristian: Less than an hour ago.

Viki: Was he with her?

Cristian: Oh, yeah, like glue.

Viki: Well, I'm sure he put her up to it, don't you think?

Cristian: Well, that's what I want to think. But then she plants a kiss on him right in front of me.

Viki: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Cristian: Mrs. Davidson, what's going on?

Viki: Natalie had no idea what she was getting herself into.

Cristian: Is that what all this security's about?

Viki: Cristian --

Cristian: Mrs. Davidson, I love your daughter. You need to tell me. Please. Look, if Natalie's in danger, if this Michael Lazarus can hurt her, then I need to know. 3DF118D7.JPG

Viki: Yeah, you do. Ok, in the first place, his name is not Michael Lazarus. His name is Mitch Laurence, and this is a man who has hated me for over 20 years, and he came back for one reason -- to hurt us all.


Roxy: Mitch Laurence is alive?

Asa: It is not possible.

Bo: He faked his death, and then he's been hiding out all these years.

Asa: Well, I hope you locked him up and threw away the key.

Bo: Oh, I wish.

Asa: He must have broken every law in the books.

Bo: He waited until the statute of limitations ran out.

Asa: Let me get this straight, Bo. You haul me in on a little gambling charge, and you let this sicko, Laurence, walk free. 3DF119B9.JPG

Bo: I'm not letting him do anything.

Asa: You're not stopping him. Why? Because you're out arresting your own flesh and blood.

Bo: Pa, this has nothing to do with you.

Roxy: If Mitch Laurence isn't in jail, where is he?

Bo: He's here. He's in Llanview.

Roxy: He is?

Asa: If you're not going to do anything about it, I am.

Bo: No, you're going to let me handle this.

Asa: Yeah, if you can.

Bo: I can and I will. And this is where you come in.

Roxy: Me? Why? Is he here looking for me? Because, you know, I barely even know the guy. He was a friend of Wally's. I mean, you know, I never had nothing do with him. 3DF119DA.JPG

Bo: Well, I doubt that he wants much to do with you, but, see, what I need right now is information about your husband's death.

Roxy: Yeah, well, what's Wally got to do with it? He's not back from the dead, too, is he?

Bo: Not that we know of.

Roxy: Because that S.O.B. was always jerking me around. I mean, you know, I don't want to dis the dead or nothing. What do you want to know?

Bo: No, no, not here. My office.

Roxy: It's that serious, huh?

Bo: Let's go.

Roxy: Ok. I guess this messes up our little trip. Sorry about that.

Asa: Uh. Not as sorry as I am. Damn. 3DF11A0C.JPG


Seth: Jessica, your mother isn't hiding anything from you. She's just trying to keep you safe from this Mitch Laurence.

Jessica: There's more to it. I'm sure of it.

Seth: Why do you say that? She's just taking precautions.

Jessica: No. There's something she doesn't want me to know. But what? What would make her keep secrets from me?


Viki's voice: You can't ever 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.


Jessica: Do you know?

Seth: Huh?

Jessica: What's going on with my mom? Do you know anything? 3DF11A3F.JPG

Seth: Why would I know?

Jessica: Did she say anything to you?

Seth: Why would she tell me and not you?

Jessica: Because she asked you to protect me, so --

Seth: From Mitch Laurence, and that's what I'm doing.

Jessica: And you don't know anything else? You swear?

Seth: Jess, I love you, ok? If I knew something that would hurt you, I would tell you, ok? I wouldn't hide something from you. You believe me, don't you?

Jessica: Yeah. Yeah. Sorry. I'm just going a little crazy.

Seth: Just, look, don't worry about anything, ok?

Jessica: I'll try not to. Can you do me a favor? Do you think you could run downstairs and get me a bottle of water? 3DF11A75.JPG

Seth: Sure. Just don't let anyone in that door, ok? I'll be right back, ok?

Jessica: Why are you lying to me?


Cristian: This Michael Lazarus guy, he's the one that had that cult, right? The one that Allison Perkins was in?

Viki: Yeah, Mitch Laurence, that's right, and he's the one who forced Allison to switch Natalie and Jessica.

Cristian: I tell you, I didn't like that guy the second I laid eyes on him. Now I know why. But he's married to Natalie. What's that about?

Viki: Revenge for things that he thinks I did to him.

Cristian: This is bad. This is really bad. Natalie's married to Mitch Laurence? I got to go tell her. 3DF11AAC.JPG

Viki: Cristian, no, wait.

Rex: Natalie's married?

Cristian: Mrs. Davidson, Natalie thinks her husband's name is Michael Lazarus. Once she finds out it's Mitch Laurence --

viki: She already knows.

Cristian: She couldn't. I mean, she wouldn't have married the guy if she did.

Viki: She didn't know when she married him. She does now.

Cristian: I know why she won't leave him.


Jen: Well, that's just a stupid question to ask. Of course, you're over Cristian. Why would you marry someone else if you weren't?

Natalie: Well, yeah, you got your answer, so you can leave now.

Jen: I know things haven't been great between us lately. 3DF11ACF.JPG

Natalie: "Lately"?

Jen: We'd started to become friends. At least that's what I thought. And now you're with someone else. Well, you just must be so happy. Let me see your ring. What's wrong with you?

Natalie: Nothing.

Jen: I want to hear all about your wedding.

Natalie: Jen, I don't want to talk to you about my wedding or my ring or Cristian, ok? I don't want to talk about anything.

Mitch: Well, hello there.


Rae: Renee?

Renee: Go away.

Rae: I know you don't want to hear anything I have to say, but I have seen this before, and you could be hitting rock bottom.

Renee: And there isn't anything that you or anybody else can do about it. 3DF11BDE.JPG

Rae: Well, maybe there is. I mean, maybe I know of something that I can do for you, something that could help you.

Max: Oh, that's it, that's it. Tell her you're going to divorce Asa.

Renee: You have something that could help me?

Rae: I have the answer to all your problems.

Renee: You do?

Rae: Here. This. You know, these books helped me enormously when I hit rock bottom, and I think they can comfort you, too.

Renee: But I --

Rae: No, no, no. Just read them. Oh -- and "Flunking Life" -- that was particularly good. Hey, you take good care of yourself. 3DF11C16.JPG

Max: What just happened here?

Renee: Your foolproof plan made fools out of both of us.


[Phone rings]

Rex: Hello.

Jessica: Rex? I'm so glad you picked up.

Rex: Jessica?

Jessica: Listen, I need your help.

Rex: Look, where are you? Are you ok? I've been looking all over for you.

Jessica: I'm fine. But, listen, something's going on, and nobody will tell me what, not even Seth.

Rex: I will.

Jessica: You know?

Rex: Natalie got married.

Jessica: What? To who? Cristian?

Rex: No. I don't know. Some guy named Mitch.


Mitch: Pardon my wife for walking out on you like that. 3DF11C5F.JPG

Jen: You're Michael Lazarus?

Mitch: Surprised?

Jen: You're just not what I --

Mitch: Not what you expected? What exactly did you expect?


Cristian: Well, there's only one reason Natalie would stay married to the guy.

Viki: What do you think that is?

Cristian: Well, you said he came back here because he wanted to hurt you all, right?

Viki: Yes.

Cristian: Well, she's trying to protect you. You and Jessica.

Viki: Or you. Cristian, she might be trying to protect you.


Jen: I don't really know what I was expecting.

Mitch: Well, obviously not me. 3DF11C88.JPG

Jen: No. I mean --

Mitch: Well, that's understandable. I mean, there is an age difference. You probably expected your friend to be interested in someone younger. Did say something wrong?

Jen: No. It's ok.

Mitch: No, it's not ok. You're upset. Did Natalie and you have a falling-out?

Jen: Why would you think that?

Mitch: Just the way she scampered away like that.

Jen: I didn't come here to fight with her.

Mitch: Yeah. You know, my wife has, shall we say, a temper problem. But maybe I can help you. 3DF11CB7.JPG

Jen: Maybe you can.


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

 On the next "One Life to Live" --

Todd: You almost blew everything, and you don't even know it!

Natalie: What did he want?

Rex: To know where Jessica is.

Cristian: I'm not letting Natalie spend one more day with this guy.

Mitch: Now that I'm married to Natalie, that puts a different slant on you and Cristian, doesn't it?
