 Previously on "One Life to Live" --

Asa: Do we get rid of our wives, or what?

Max: I'm still in, whatever it takes.

Viki: She doesn't know about Mitch, does she -- I mean, that he's her father?

Seth: No, and she wonít. I won't say a word.

Mitch: You will not leave me until I say you can.

Bo: It's okay, Viki. We'll get her out. You just keep him busy.

Natalie: Cristian, what are you doing here?

Cristian: I came to get you out.

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

Jessica: I thought you were sleeping.

Seth: I know you did. Jess, what are you doing?

Jessica: I'm going to get towels. Remember, I was going to take a bath?

Seth: Come on, Jess. We got tons of towels.

Jessica: Not clean ones.

Seth: Jess, come on. I know you were trying to sneak out.

Jessica: You're right. I was. I'm leaving, Seth. One way or another, I'm getting out of here tonight.

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

Mitch: You're lying. What is it you really want?

Viki: I told you why I'm here.

Mitch: What, do you think I'm stupid?

Viki: Look, can you just hear me out?

Bo: Viki, you say the word, I'm in there.

Mitch: You said you came here to offer me a monetary settlement -- money.

Viki: Yes, exactly.

Mitch: You want to buy Natalie back?

Viki: Yes. I'm willing to give you any amount of money.

Mitch: You should know you can't buy Natalie from me.

Viki: Well, can't we at least discuss this?

Mitch: And you do know that. So what do you really want?

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

Natalie: No, you -- you can't do that. You can't take me away.

Cristian: Natalie, calm down. Everything's going to be okay.

Natalie: No, Cristian, it's not going to be okay. Mitch is right downstairs.

Cristian: Yeah, I know. I know.

Natalie: If he finds you --

Cristian: What? What's he going to do?

Natalie: Cristian, please, you just -- you got to go.

Cristian: Wait a minute; you think he's going to hurt me? Is that what you're afraid of?

Natalie: I don't know what he's going to do. What do you think he'll do? If he finds my ex-boyfriend standing in my bedroom, he's not going to be happy.

Cristian: Well, that's all? That's it?

Natalie: Cristian, please, you have got to go. He's going to go crazy.

Cristian: Crazy? How crazy? Come on, Natalie, tell me. What's he going to do?

Natalie: Please, Cristian, just get out.

Cristian: Okay, okay. Fine, I'll leave, as long as you come with me.

Natalie: No!

Cristian: He wonít even know you're gone, Natalie. We can jump out the window.

Natalie: What?

Cristian: There's a shed just a couple feet below. We'll be fine.

Natalie: Cristian --

Cristian: Natalie, look, I'm not going to let anything happen to you, I promise.

Natalie: No. I'm not going anywhere with you.

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

Rae: Oh, I feel so wonderful this Christmas season. I wish everybody felt this way.

Nigel: You don't say.

Rae: Except, of course, Renee. I am worried about her. Excuse me. Is Ms. Divine here?

Bartender: I'm sorry, Mrs. Buchanan.

Rae: What? What is it? Has something happened?

Bartender: I really can't say.

Rae: Please. I want to help her. Tell me -- where is she?

Bartender: She's drinking.

Rae: What? Where?

Bartender: Break Bar. She doesn't want her employees to see her.

Rae: Nigel, we have to find her.

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

Renee: Evening, Max.

Max: Nice outfit there, Reba.

Renee: Quit the chitchat. Just give me a fifth of something.

Max: Got it all ready for you.

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

[Phone rings]

Max: Hello.

Roxy: When are you coming home, Max?

Max: Late. Late as possible.

Roxy: You got to come home now.

Max: Why?

Roxy: Mitch Laurence is alive.

Max: So?

Roxy: So I ratted him out. He's going to come and get me.

Max: You ratted him out. About what?

Roxy: Well, I told the cops that he probably knocked off my husband -- my other husband. He's going to kill me.

Max: And how would he know that you went to t p police?

Roxy: Hey, look, guys like this, they have a way of finding things out. And the front door is broken. I've been waiting for the locksmith all day long.

Max: You don't need him. Listen, whoever this guy is, look, he doesn't give a damn about you.

Roxy: Oh, he doesn't? Okay, well, I'm coming there.

Max: No, no. Donít.

Roxy: Max! Maxie! I can't stay here all alone.

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

Mitch: Well?

Viki: All right, all right. It was -- it was foolish of me to think that I could offer you money to buy Natalie out of this marriage. I think if that's what you had wanted, you would already have come to me.

Bo: Good, good. Keep him talking.

Mitch: You're right; I would have, so why are you trying to buy me off?

Viki: Because I miss Natalie. I love her. She's my daughter and I know that she's unhappy here.

Mitch: Now, why would you say that? You heard her at the police station. She's completely happy.

Viki: No, I mean, she did seem to be happy, but --

Mitch: No. She's found a true calling, a good, safe place for her love.

Viki: You?

Mitch: Yes. She understands me and she very much wants to be my wife in every way.

Bo: Don't let him get to you.

Viki: Well, you always did have a certain way with women, didn't you?

Mitch: Except with you, Viki, aside from our one indelible rendezvous.

Viki: You can't tell me that that truly matters to you after all these years.

Mitch: No, it doesn't, now that I have Natalie. And although I have greatly enjoyed this delightfully unexpected visit from my mother-in-law, I would like to be with my wife now, alone, upstairs in our bedroom. I'm sure you can see yourself out.

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

Cristian: Look, Natalie, I know why you want to stay.

Natalie: Because I'm married?

Cristian: No, because you're scared. Mitch threatened to hurt me if you left him, didn't he? Was it someone else? Jessica? Your mom?

Natalie: Why would you think that? How could you think something like that of my husband?

Cristian: Oh, Natalie, come on, I know you and you don't want to be with this guy. You would never be with someone like that.

Bo: You got to move it, Cristian.

Cristian: Look, I'll hide you. I'll keep you safe.

Natalie: I don't need you to. I don't want you to!

Cristian: Mitch won't be able to find you, okay, or hurt you. Natalie, I'll never let anybody hurt you.

Natalie: Cristian --

Cristian: All you got to do is go out that window with me.

Natalie: I canít.

Cristian: Natalie, come on! Come with me. Come with me and we can be together for the rest of our lives.

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

Rae: Thank you, Nigel. You're learning now -- that's good. Thank you. All right, we have to find Renee. She has to be here somewhere. Nigel? Pick this up for me, will you?

Nigel: With pleasure, Madam.

Rae: Oh, my God. This is some of the pages from the self-help books I've given Renee.

[Country music plays]

Rae: There she is. She is drinking, Nigel.

Rae: Renee? My God, what's happened?

Renee: Oh, Rae. This is what happens when you lose the one person in your life that means the whole wide world to you.

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

Roxy: I got to get out of here. I'm not going to let him find me.

[Doorbell rings]

Roxy: It's him. Stay calm.

Roxy: That's not Mitch Laurence.

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

Seth: Jess, I know you want to go home. I swear -- I swear to God if I could let you go, I would.

Jessica: Why is it that you get to decide who stays or who goes?

Seth: Jess, you know why. Your mom wanted me to make sure you were safe.

Jessica: Yeah, but wouldn't she want to make sure that Natalie is safe, too? It doesn't make any sense, Seth. Something is wrong. I know it.

Seth: I know. I wish we could help her, I really do.

Jessica: Okay, so let's go.

Seth: Jess, come on, you think I like -- you think I like doing this? You think I like the fact that I can't take you home and I can't take you back to your family?

Jessica: Fine. Then I'll go. You don't have to do anything.

Seth: Jess, look --

Jessica: I'll go by myself.

Seth: Come on, I can't let you do that, okay? I'm trying to protect you!

Jessica: Protect me? What -- it's the exact same thing you were trying to do when you thought rex was scamming me. You were trying to protect me.

Seth: I just thought that --

Jessica: I'm sick of it, Seth. You don't have to protect me. I'm an adult. I can handle the truth.

Seth: I know that.

Jessica: So why don't you treat me like one instead of some hopeless little incompetent who needs to be taken care of 24 hours a day?

Seth: Jess, I know that you could handle anything. I know you're strong, okay, but there's something going on that you just can't know about, something really bad, and you just can't know till the right time.

Jessica: What?

Seth: I mean --

Jessica: You know something?

Viki: I have to keep Jessica far away from Mitch Laurence. He's her father.

Seth: No, Jess.

Jessica: You know something and you're not telling me.

Seth: Your mom knows something really bad is going to happen, okay? That's why she wanted me to take you away.

Jessica: Okay, and that is why I need to be with her -- because she needs me and so does Natalie. Natalie just married Mitch Laurence. How awful is that?

Seth: I know. I can't believe it, either.

Jessica: Exactly, so she needs me. Natalie needs me. And I understand my mom is trying to -- I don't know -- keep me safe, but I can't do this.

Seth: Jess, it's going to be okay. Come on.

Jessica: I wouldn't do this, Seth, if I had another choice.

Seth: What are you doing?

Jessica: I'm asking you to choose between me and my mom.

Seth: Jess, that's not fair. Come on, I love you. You know that.

Jessica: I'm leaving. I'm going home. So, please, you have to break that promise you made to my mom. You have to treat me like an adult, please? Like your girlfriend. Like your lover. Please, choose me, not my mother's child.

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

Bo: We need more time, Viki. You can do this.

Viki: Mitch, wait.

Mitch: We have nothing more to say, Viki. You're not going to offer me the only thing I truly want.

Viki: Well, now, what makes you say that?

Mitch: You are willing to allow me to know my daughter?

Viki: Yes. Yes, I'm willing to allow you to get to know Jessica.

Bo: Good news, Cristian -- Viki just bought us some more time.

Natalie: Cristian --

Cristian: Natalie, come on. We got to go.

Natalie: No. I told you I'm staying with Mitch because I love him.

Cristian: No, you donít.

Natalie: Yes, I do!

Cristian: Natalie, come on!

Natalie: Cristian, you don't know me, okay? What, because we kissed a couple of times and I told you I loved you? Well, I donít. I love Mitch and I'm staying with Mitch.

Cristian: Yeah, right. Well, you can say that all you want, but I know it's not true. I mean, come on, look at you -- you're scared.

Natalie: Do you listen? I'm not scared.

Cristian: Natalie, everything's going to be fine. We planned this out.

Natalie: "We?"

Cristian: Yes. Your uncle, Comm. Buchanan -- he's waiting outside.

Natalie: What?

Cristian: That's why your mom came -- to distract Mitch.

Natalie: Everyone's trying to get me out of here?

Cristian: Yes, and everything is going to be fine. Laurence won't be able to get to you or me or anyone you love.

Natalie: No, I'm Mitch's wife.

Cristian: Okay, fine, you're his wife because he tricked you.

Natalie: No, Cristian. I married Mitch because I wanted to. How many times do I have to tell you that?

Cristian: That's not why you're staying.

Natalie: I told you --

Cristian: And I told you that I don't believe you.

Natalie: Cristian --

Cristian: Natalie, I know you. I mean, you can say I don't, but I do. And I can prove it.

Natalie: How?

Cristian: Well, if you really wanted to stay, you would've called out to Mitch a long time ago, and you havenít.

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

Mitch: Why are you suddenly going to allow me to know the daughter that we've created?

Viki: Because I don't really see any other way out of this.

Mitch: No, there isnít.

Viki: Right. However -- ahem -- I have a few conditions.

Mitch: Yes, I expected there might be. And they are?

Natalie: Mitch!

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

Rae: Oh, Renee. Oh, go back to your good time! This isn't a show here. This woman is suffering. Go on! Go! How could you let her make a spectacle of herself like this?

Max: Well, she was -- you know, I tried to help. I tried to stop her, but she was in so much pain, I didn't know what to do.

Renee: Oh, Rae. Rae. I remember when we were dear, dear friends. That was a happier time.

Rae: Well, don't just stand there, go make some coffee. Go on. Nigel, please, get some ice water for her.

Nigel: Of course, Madam.

Rae: Come on. Now, sit right here, all right? I gave you those books, those self-help books, so you could get on with your life and get over Asa.

Renee: I can't, I canít. That's why I made an appointment at St. Annís.

Rae: St. Ann's? Why?

Renee: Electroshock therapy. It's my only hope for being free -- free of the memories, free of the love. Free of the pain.

Rae: Oh, Honey, that's good. Let it out. You know, you'll feel better. Listen; do you want to talk about your pain?

Renee: You want me to talk about my pain -- the pain of losing Asa to you? You?

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

Nigel: How much has she drunk?

Max: Who?

Nigel: Ms. Divine, of course.

Max: She hasn't had a drop.

Nigel: And she actually put on that ensemble stone cold sober?

Max: We are trying to pull off a scam here, Nigel, remember? She's just acting.

Nigel: And, my word, she's doing an awfully convincing job of it.

Max: Listen, thanks for getting Rae over here.

Nigel: Oh, I finally got to use the kettle drum Mr. Buchanan gave me last Christmas. Just kidding. Anything else you need me to do?

Max: Oh, no, not at the moment.

Nigel: Because if there's any way I can expedite Mr. and Mrs. Buchanan's divorce, short of actually marrying Gretel myself, of course --

Max: We'll get there, Nigel. Don't worry; we'll get there as long as Asa holds up his part of the bargain.

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

Asa: Ah. Ah!

Roxy: Oh, I'm so sorry. I was so scared. I thought Mitch Laurence was going to come in here and kill me because I ratted him out to the cops.

Asa: Well, I got to tell you; you have strong hands for such a little gal.

Roxy: Yeah, I clocked you pretty good. I'm real sorry, Babe.

Asa: Well, I tell you, it's not good, but I do -- I do admire women who can take care of themselves.

Roxy: Yeah, well, I had no choice. It's not like Max was going to come and help me.

Asa: He isn't?

Roxy: Nah, he's not going to come home.

Asa: Well, I'll tell you -- don't you worry, Darling. I'm here now.

Roxy: Well, yeah, that's better than nothing.

Asa: What?

Roxy: I thought you were going away. Weren't you going to St. Haze Island?

Asa: St. Blazeís.

Roxy: Yeah, well, whatever. Couldn't leave town because Mitch Laurence is back from the dead, huh?

Asa: I don't care about that weasel Laurence. That's not why I stayed.

Roxy: Hey, I'm a pretty lousy hostess because you look like you need a drink, and I know that I need a drink, too. You're a step ahead of me because you already got ice.

Asa: No, don't you want to know why I didn't go?

Roxy: Hey. Where'd these flowers come from?

Asa: I brought them.

Roxy: You did? What for?

Asa: "What for." For you.

Roxy: For me?

Asa: Mm-hmm.

Roxy: You brought me flowers? Why?

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

Mitch: Natalie?

Bo: Viki?

Viki: Oh, come on, that didn't sound serious.

Mitch: Natalie, what's going on?

Viki: Look, can we just sit down and settle this, please? I mean, you say you want to get to know your daughter, right?

Mitch: Natalie, I'm coming up.

Viki: I guess I didn't make myself very clear. There's an offer on the table now, and if you leave this room, I will not be here when you come back. And any opportunity you might have had to get to know your daughter, Jessica, will be gone!

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

Natalie: Get out of here before Mitch sees you. Please, just go!

Cristian: No.

Natalie: Cristian, I told you I love Mitch.

Cristian: And I told you I don't believe you.

Natalie: He is going to be here any second.

Bo: Get out of there.

Cristian: Did you think I'd run away when you called out to Mitch?

Natalie: I want you to go.

Cristian: See, there you go. You're trying to protect me.

Natalie: Cristian, if he finds you here --

Cristian: Look, I don't care. Let him find me here. I'm not going anywhere.

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

Mitch: My wife needs to learn I don't come when called. If she wants to speak to me, she should come down here.

Bo: That's it, Viki, keep him down there.

Mitch: So what are the conditions I have to agree to to see Jessica?

Viki: It's been a terrible, terrible year for Jessie. When Natalie came into our lives, I mean, we all believed that Jessica was no longer my child.

Mitch: Yeah, tell me something I don't know

Viki: And then we all believed that Roxanne Balsom was her biological mother.

Mitch: Well, whose fault is that? You couldn't even remember you gave birth to twins.

Viki: Yes, you're right, I blocked it out. Nevertheless, all these things really hurt Jessica. I mean, you say you're her father --

Mitch: I am her father, damn it, and you know it.

Viki: Well, fine, but being a father is more than just biological. You have to understand you have to place your child first.

Mitch: Yeah, I do understand that.

Viki: Perhaps.

Mitch: Yes! I let you raise her, didn't I, instead of forcing her to live a life on the run with me? That doesn't mean I forgot her.

Viki: No, I suppose not, knowing that she was growing up without you. Well, look, there are some things you need to know about Jessica. She's very fragile. A few years ago, she lost a baby and she had a breakdown.

Mitch: And what do you expect? She got half her genes from you.

Viki: She had a breakdown! Don't you care?

Mitch: She seems fine to me now. Just get to the point. What do I have to do to see my daughter?

Viki: Okay. All right, okay. All right, I will bring Jessica back from where she is if you agree that I can be the one to tell her that you are her father. The worst thing that could possibly happen -- the thing that would hurt her the most -- would be to hear that news from you.

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

Jessica: Come on, Seth.

Seth: Jess, don't do this.

Jessica: Just choose.

Seth: It's not like that. I can't choose between what you want and what your mother wants.

Jessica: Yes, you can.

Seth: No, I can't, because you're asking -- what you're asking me to do is to choose to hurt you.

Jessica: And I told you that I can handle it.

Seth: If I let you go home before your mom is ready, it's going to be bad, Jess.

Jessica: What do -- what do you mean, "bad"?

Seth: It can destroy you.

Jessica: Please, come on.

Seth: It's serious, Jess.

Jessica: So, okay, fine, I'll call my mom and I'll let her know that I'm coming so she can get ready.

Seth: It's not that simple.

Jessica: It is to me. I'm leaving. I'm going home with or without you.

Seth: Okay, Jess. Okay. We're going home.

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

Max: This has got to work. Rae has got to feel for Renee this time.

Nigel: Oh, I should think. That outfit is utterly ghastly.

Max: It's not the outfit, Nigel. She -- she's pouring out her soul.

Nigel: Oh, indeed. No, no, I agree completely but you see, the outfit, dreadful as it is, is an outer manifestation of the inner horror, so to speak. Oh, just forget about it, Sir.

Max: Right now she is telling Rae she's on the verge of having electroshock therapy because she won't get over Asa.

Nigel: Oh, perish the thought.

Max: It's not for real, Nigel.

Nigel: Oh, I should hope not. My sister did it -- several times, in fact. I never saw the slightest improvement.

Max: Rae's going to fold. Just you watch.

Nigel: Oh, I think I should pray.

Max: Pray? Why?

Nigel: Oh, you don't know the new Mrs. Buchanan very well, do you? If you had to drive a stake through her heart, well, you'd be hard pressed to find it.

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

Rae: You know, Renee, you didn't actually lose Asa to me. I mean, the two of you had been apart for a long time, remember? In fact, he married someone else in between.

Renee: Yes. Gabrielle Medina.

Rae: Yeah, that style editor of "The Banner." I mean, I don't know what Viki is thinking. It's so stupid.

Renee: You're right. You're right; I was imagining that Asa and I were soul mates. I can't be soul mates with anyone. I'm a madam. I'm just a whorehouse madam. That's all I am.

Rae: Renee, no, you're not. I mean, your life has gone way beyond your past. You're -- you -- you -- you have a hotel.

Renee: I met Asa when I was a madam in Las Vegas.

Rae: Really?

Renee: He was looking for uranium and he found me. When I'm finished with the shock treatments, I'm going back into the life.

Rae: The life? You're going to be -- you're not going to become a madam again?

Renee: I'm going to start selling desperate women to hungry men again.

Rae: Oh, Renee, no, for God's sake, don't say things like that.

Max: I just called the emergency number I found in Reneeís things. The doctors from St. Ann's are on their way over here.

Renee: I love you, Max.

Rae: No. No.

Max: What?

Renee: No, let me go. Let my mind go away from this pain.

Rae: Well, we have to do something. We have to help her, and I don't mean just get some number off of some stupid card.

Max: I was trying to help.

Renee: No. No, you know, Rae -- Rae, you're sweet, but you don't have to do anything.

Rae: Yes, I do. I have to do something for you and -- and even for myself. I know I lied about being a therapist, but I really am a good person. I -- I'm not a liar and a cheater. I'm not. I need to prove that to you.

Renee: Really?

Rae: Yes. Yes. I want to help you. What can I do? Please?

Renee: Well, there is something.

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

Asa: You don't know why the hell I brought you flowers?

Roxy: Should I?

Asa: Are you always this slow?

Roxy: Slow, as in stupid?

Asa: No, no, no, I mean -- you know, slow, like, not quick on the uptake.

Roxy: I'm better on the intake. I need a drink. I think you do, too.

Asa: Wait, will you? Don't you want to know why I brought you flowers?

Roxy: Obviously for my funeral because Mitch Laurence is going to kill me.

Asa: Please, please -- will you please forget that piece of slime, Laurence!

Roxy: How can I? How can I? Because the minute you leave here, he's going to come after me!

Asa: Don't you worry, Honey. I ain't going nowhere!

Roxy: Why, because you're a little woozy from where I clocked you?

Asa: No, no, that's not why I'm staying.

Roxy: Well, then why are you staying?

Asa: Shoot; do I have to spell it out for you?

Roxy: Yes, spell it out for me because I'm so slow and I'm so stupid! And why are you yelling me?

Asa: I'm yelling at you because why -- because you're not hearing me!

Roxy: Well, maybe I would hear you if you would talk like a regular person. Maybe I would understand. So how about it?

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

Jessica: Thank you. Thank you for respecting me enough to do this.

Seth: I've always respected you.

Jessica: I know that. And I love you.

Seth: I love you, too. I'm going to call your mom and let her know we're heading back.

Jessica: That sounds good.

Seth: Oh, wait, I'm sorry. Your mom told me we can't call her. She's busy or something.

Jessica: What?

Seth: I -- I totally forgot. Can we just go in the morning? What?

Jessica: You're stalling.

Seth: No, I'm not.

Jessica: You were never going to take me home, were you?

Seth: Of course I'm going to take you. Jess, I swear I'm not --

Jessica: Seth, you have to believe me. I have this feeling that Natalie needs me. Please.

Seth: I'll go pack.

Seth: Jess! Jess, what are you doing?

Seth: Jess, come on, what are you doing? Jess, open up! Jessica! Jess, open up!

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

Mitch: All right.

Viki: All right?

Mitch: Yes, all right, you can be the one to tell her I'm her father, but I want to be there when you tell her.

Viki: Why?

Mitch: Because it'll be the first moment that I can truly be her father, okay? And I don't want to miss it.

Viki: You can't seriously think that she's going to be happy about this. This news is going to break her heart.

Mitch: You don't know that.

Viki: Yes, I do know that. She's my daughter, and I happen to know exactly what it will do to her.

Bo: Keep going. You're doing great.

Viki: Which is why I have to insist that I be the one to tell her, alone.

Mitch: Right. So you can poison her mind against me, right?

Viki: Oh, no, I'm quite sure you'll do that all on your own. She is very vulnerable. So I will simply break the news to her as gently as I possibly can. And -- and after that -- I don't know -- it's up to you.

Mitch: You're going to actually allow me to know my daughter?

Viki: Yes. Absolutely.

Mitch: Something's not right here.

Viki: What? What's not right?

Mitch: How do I know you're telling me the truth? I mean, for all I know, you may have shipped her off to some deserted island in the south pacific with a new identity and a new name. You may have no intention of ever letting me know her, for all I know.

Viki: Well, I suppose you're just going to have to trust me.

[Mitch laughs]

Bo: What's happening?

Viki: Who are you calling?

Mitch: Oh, I'm not calling anyone. You're calling Jessica.

Viki: Now?

Mitch: Yes, now. Call her and tell her, gently, that I'm her father.

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

Natalie: Looks like today is your lucky day. Mitch didn't come up here.

Cristian: Yeah. We're lucky. Now I can get you out of here.

Natalie: No, Cristian, I told you I'm not going anywhere. If you want to save someone, save yourself.

Cristian: Natalie, please --

Natalie: Get out!

Cristian: No!

Natalie: Cristian, please. If you -- if you want to make me happy, then just leave me here. Just forget that you ever knew me.

Cristian: I can't do that.

Natalie: Cristian, please, okay? Just -- just go. Go on with your life. Do what you have to do. Be happy. You know, that'll make me happy. That's enough for me. Please.

Cristian: Yeah, well, it's not enough for me. And I don't believe it's enough for you.

Natalie: If you don't, I'm going to call for Mitch again, and this time I'm going to scream.

Cristian: Fine, go ahead.

Natalie: Cristian, please don't do this.

Cristian: Natalie, listen to me. Everything's going to be fine.

Natalie: What -- what are you doing?

Cristian: Just trust me.

Natalie: Cristian, what -- what are you doing? Stop it!

Cristian: Shh.

Natalie: Cristian, no, don't! Cristian, stop!

Cristian: Natalie, I'm not going to let anything happen to you, okay?

Natalie: No! No -- aah!

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

Rae: Renee, please --

Renee: No, no, I couldn't ask you --

Rae: Tell me.

Renee: No, I canít. I canít.

Rae: No, you can ask me. Please, ask me. What can I do to help you?

Renee: Well -- you can give Asa a divorce.

Rae: Um Ė

Nigel: Will my prayers be answered? Is it possible?

Max: This is it, Nigel. Hope you're ready to watch my victory dance.

Nigel: I shall treasure the memory.

Asa: The reason I was yelling at you is because -- well, because what I have to say is not going to be easy for me, especially if you're hellbent on not understanding.

Roxy: Understanding what?

Asa: Oh, shoot. You know, you are just one impossible woman, you know that? May God help me. I'm nuts about you.

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

Seth: Come on, Jess, open the door! Jessica, open up!

Jessica: I'm really sorry, Seth. I really, really am.

Seth: Jess, come on, if you want to go, we'll go. I wasn't stalling, I swear. Come on!

Jessica: No, you were stalling, Seth, but I need to leave. I need to get to my mom now.

Seth: Jessica, don't do this without me! Come on!

Jessica: I have to.

Seth: Come on, I want to be there with you, please!

Jessica: Natalie and my mom need me, Seth.

Seth: Jess -- Jess, don't go alone. Come on! Open the door! Jessica. Jess!

Mitch: Do it, Viki. Call Jessica. Call my little girl.

Bo: Just another minute, Viki.

Viki: No. No, I'm not going to call her and -- and tell her that you're her father on the telephone. I'll do that face to face.

Mitch: If you don't call her, I will find her and I will tell her myself.

Viki: No, we had an understanding!

Mitch: You know that I will. I can do anything I want. I got you pregnant without you even knowing it. I took one of your daughters from you and I gave her to Roxanne Balsom to raise. I rose from the dead, and when I came back, i found that same daughter and I married her!

Viki: I want you to listen to me.

Mitch: Now, are you going to do what I told you to do and call Jessica, or are you going to wait to see what I do next?

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

[Natalie mumbles]

Cristian: Natalie, don't fight me. I don't want you to get hurt. Now we got to get of here. All right, we're out of here.

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

Bo: It's okay, Viki. It's almost over.

Mitch: Call Jessica.

Bo: Damn!

Jessica: Well, now I'm coming home.
