Lindsay: Yes, we are.

Todd: I've got nothing left to lose, so now it's your turn.

Jessica: Grandfather rewrote his will. He left the entire estate to Mitch Laurence.

R.J.: Keri and this baby have a plane to catch.

Conrad: The plane crashed just as it was landing in Ohio. There were no survivors.

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

Nora: Hey, R.J. -- I don't mean to barge in, but you left your keys in the lock. R.J.? R.J., What's going on? What happened? What's going on?

R.J.: Keri, Elizabeth, and the baby -- they're gone. They're all dead.

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

Cristian: Hey. What's up, man? Hey, thanks for letting us stay here last night.

Antonio: Yeah, it's no big deal. I'll be out of here as soon as Jen leaves the loft.

Cristian: And that shouldn't be much longer, either.

Antonio: I hope so because I have -- I have a lot of work there.

Natalie: You redoing it?

Antonio: I'm adding a wall. I'm trying to make a nursery.

Natalie: Oh, Mr. Mom.

Antonio: Ah, ah, well, I'm going to be a part of my daughter's life whether Liz likes it or not.

Cristian: And maybe you can get another chance with Keri, too.

Natalie: Maybe if you just went over there --

Antonio: No, no, no, she -- she won't talk to me.

[Knock on door]

Jessica: Hi.

Antonio: Hey. I -- I talked to your uncle. He seemed fine. He said he was fine. He didn't know why you would be worried about him.

Jessica: Yeah. Figures he'd say that. Thanks, anyway, though.

Antonio: Yeah, sure. No worries.

Jessica: Is my sister here?

Antonio: Yeah, yeah. She's right there. Come on in.

Jessica: Natalie, I need to talk to you.

Natalie: What about?

Jessica: They're burying our grandfather today.

Natalie: Good.

Jessica: And you should be there.

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

Viki: I'm certainly glad you came back to town when you did.

Joey: Well, I'm glad I could be of some help. Be nice if you didn't need it, though. If Mitch Laurence hadn't shown up -- I mean, Grandpa Victor -- well, we're going to be fine.

Viki: Yes, we are going to be fine. You know, I've tried to call Kevin a whole bunch of times. He hasn't called me back.

Joey: He will. I'm sure he'd be here if he could.

Viki: At least most of the family's here, right?

[Door opens]

Todd: Well, hope we don't have to do this again anytime soon because I bet those plaques cost a fortune.

Viki: Todd?

Todd: Yeah. What, don't look so surprised.

Viki: I didn't know if you were coming.

Todd: No, no, I'm not here to pay my respects to the old dirt bag. Just to make sure that he's really dead this time.

Viki: Come on. We know he is.

Todd: Victor, you in there?

Viki: It's father's ring.

Todd: Oh, yeah, yeah.

Viki: So, why are you wearing it?

Todd: Well, because he gave it to me. You like it?

Viki: Ah, but why are you wearing it?

Todd: Because the Lord family is the only family that I got left.

Viki: What does that mean?

Todd: Ask Blair. She finally pulled the plug on me seeing the kids ever again -- like ever again, ever again.

Viki: Oh, my God. I'm so sorry.

Todd: No big deal. The Lord family's my family now. And as the man of the house, I think there's a few things we need to take care of.

Viki: Oh, no, no, no, no. No, I know what you're thinking --

Todd: Somebody's got to do something about Mitch Laurence.

Viki: Not you.

Todd: Why not me? I'd kill for my family, if that's what it takes.

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

Troy: Let me get a double bourbon, please.

Bartender: Long day, Doc?

Troy: Just got off a 12-hour shift that went 14.

Blair: Sounds like a killer.

Troy: Blair, hey. What are you doing here?

Blair: Oh, just having a meeting of the Wild Hearts Losers Club. Isn't that why you're here? I mean, after all, you are its new member.

Troy: That's right. You know, I almost forgot.

Blair: Well, this is the place for that -- to forget.

Troy: Yeah. So, how's it going with Starr?

Blair: It's been better. How about you and Lindsay?

Troy: Hmm. I wish I could say it's been better.

Blair: What happened?

Troy: Nah. I guess I'll spare you the details.

Blair: That bad, huh?

Troy: Yeah. I think I might be finally getting through to her.

Blair: You think?

Troy: No. No, not really. You know Lindsay. She never gives up without a fight.

Troy: What are you doing?

Lindsay: I love you more than anyone will. Please? Isn't that what you want??

Troy: No, no. Lindsay, listen to me! All I want is for you to get help.

Troy's voice: I don't feel anything for you except pity.

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

Todd: The only way we're going to get this over with is if we get this thing started.

Viki: Okay, we're not starting until everybody's here.

Todd: Viki, I don't know how to break this to you, but I don't think the whole town's going to show up for this one.

Viki: Jessica is coming, and hopefully Natalie is, too.

Todd: Any other members of the fan club?

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

Nora: R.J., are you sure that Liz and -- and Keri were on this plane?

R.J.: And the baby.

Nora: No, they can't. They couldn't have. Antonio had a restraining order out on --

R.J.: To hell with Antonio! What's he going to do now, arrest them?

Nora: I just meant that maybe they didn't get on the plane.

R.J.: No. They did. Keri called me from the airport to say good-bye one last time.

Nora: I'm so sorry, R.J.

R.J.: I am, too. I'm sorry. I'm sorry for screwing up. I'm sorry for hurting people. You know, when Keri first came to town, I promised myself I was going to be the kind of father that she deserved. Not because I was looking for forgiveness or redemption. I just wanted a better life with my daughter. Is -- is that so wrong?

Nora: She was happy.

R.J.: No. Antonio Vega tore her heart apart. She couldn't even die happy.

Nora: You made her happy. Oh, she loved you, R.J.

R.J.: I love her, too, more than I thought possible. Sometimes I would just look at her, wonder how she could've come from me. I mean, she's so beautiful and smart and kind and caring. Elizabeth and I got it right when we made her. She's one thing -- one thing right, just one good thing. And now what? How? How? How could this be happening? How can they all be dead?

Nora: R.J., R.J. --

R.J.: How could they all be dead?

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

[Phone rings]

Lindsay: Hello?

Jen: You are not going to believe this.

Lindsay: What happened?

Jen: I just got back from meeting with the judge. I know I lied about Cristian, but I apologized for that. I told them the truth. Cristian got out of jail. I don't know what else they want from me.

Lindsay: What's going on?

Jen: I got stuck with community service.

Lindsay: Community service? That's what you're so upset about?

Jen: I'm way past "upset." That's why I need your help.

Lindsay: Doing what?

Jen: Talk to Dad. Just tell him to get me out of it.

Lindsay: Why don't you just call him yourself?

Jen: I would, but I -- I thought maybe if I had you on my side--

Lindsay: Wouldn't make any difference.

Jen: You're not going to do it?

Lindsay: You got yourself into this mess, Jen.

Jen: What? Mom, I thought you of all people would understand this.

Lindsay: Oh, I understand. I understand that you got off really easy.

Jen: You think this is easy?

Lindsay: Compared to going to jail? You don't know what it's like. If you knew --

Jen: What, then I would've given up on Cristian, like you gave up on Dr. Troy?

Lindsay: Obsession is a really bad thing. Really bad. Nothing good can come of it. Not for anybody.

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

Natalie: Are you serious? I mean, why in the world would I want to go to that old psycho's funeral?

Jessica: For Mom.

Natalie: Hmm. Now, why didn't I think of that? Oh, maybe because I'm me and you're you. Of course.

Jessica: Listen, will you please just stop thinking about yourself for one second and think about Mom? Look, this is the second time she's had to bury her father. She's dealing with everything all over again -- everything that they went through, everything that he did to her. Look, she's having a really hard time, and you're not helping.

Natalie: Do you think she's going to be okay?

Jessica: You care?

Natalie: I'm not that cold.

Jessica: Well, then, come with me. Forget everything that's happened. It doesn't matter now. Mom needs us. All that she has are her kids. Okay. If you don't want to come, I can't make you. But Mom loves us -- all of us. And if you feel anything for her at all, you'll be there.

Natalie: Wait. I'll go.

Cristian: You sure you want to do this? The last time you had to deal with your grandfather --

Natalie: Yeah, he tried to cut my heart out and tried to kill me. But he's dead now and I want to help bury him.

Cristian: What if Laurence shows?

Natalie: I hope he does. I hope he does so I can throw him in the coffin with Victor Lord and they can both rot in peace.

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

Joey: This is a family gathering. You don't belong here.

Mitch: But I am family, Joseph. I'm still husband to one of your sisters and father to the other.

Viki: And I refuse to allow you to upset them anymore.

Mitch: Where is my lovely bride, anyway? Didn't have the heart to come?

Todd: Get out.

Mitch: What, and not pay my respects to the generous man who left me all his worldly goods?

Viki: Oh, and wasn't that a devil's bargain.

Mitch: Oh, then I must pray for his soul. Surely, Reverend, as a fellow man of the cloth, you can appreciate that.

Todd: All right, that's enough. You need to get out of here right now.

Mitch: Mr. Manning, if you really want to get rid of me, I'm afraid you'll have to follow through with shooting me this time.

Viki: What?

Mitch: What, your brother didn't tell you?

Viki: Todd, what is he talking about?

Mitch: Oh, you should've seen him. He came bursting into my home like some avenging angel hell-bent on killing me -- except he didn't have the guts.

Todd: Maybe I've changed my mind.

Mitch: Hmm. Well, go right ahead. Take your best shot.

Viki: Leave before we call the police.

Mitch: And tell them what, Viki, that your brother threatened to kill me? I believe he still has an outstanding violation for shooting poor Cristian Vega. I'm sure they would revoke his bail.

Todd: You're out on bail, also, and you're trespassing.

Mitch: On my own property?

Viki: This will never be yours.

Mitch: It already is.

Joey: I'm calling the police.

Mitch: Never mind. I'll leave. And I'll leave you good folks to lay your dearly departed father to rest. May his soul lie in peace.

Todd: I'm pretty sure his soul's already in hell. That's where your soul's going to be soon, if I have anything to say about it.

Mitch: Well, you don't, just as you have nothing to say about anything else in your sorry life, including your children.

Viki: Todd, don't!

Joey: As a fellow man of the cloth, take my advice -- get out.

Mitch: All right, for now. Until I'm back to take possession of the property.

Mitch: Yes, everything is coming together. Mm-hmm. I thought you'd be pleased. The only fly in the ointment right now is Todd Manning, but I think we'll be able to find a way to take him out of the picture. It'll all be happening very soon.

Todd: Should've killed him when I had the chance.

Viki: Will you stop.

Todd: Would've solved a lot of problems.

Joey: It wouldn't have solved anything, and you know it.

Viki: I beg you not to do anything stupid now.

Todd: I threw the gun away.

Viki: Thank God. And don't let him goad you into doing anything else. Please, think about your children.

Todd: Viki, that's all I do think about.

Viki: I'm really sorry.

Todd: Yeah. I'll never have my own children, ever. And even if Blair does croak, I got to wait for Cassie to die now.

Viki: I know that you love them.

Todd: All I ever wanted was to be a good father. Guess that's just not in the cards for any of the Lord guys, huh? Rest in peace, you old S.O.B.

Viki: Todd --

Joey: Mom, let him go. You can't control him. You never could.

Viki: I know, but at least he used to listen to me. Jessie. My baby.

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

Cristian: You sure you want to do this?

Natalie: Yeah. I mean, I need to. You don't.

Cristian: Well, I'm not going to leave you here alone.

Natalie: It's supposed to be just a family thing.

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

Viki: Natalie. I -- I didn't know if you were going to come.

Natalie: Yeah. I --

Viki: I'm very, very glad you did.

Natalie: Was that Mitch that I saw just driving out of here?

Viki: Yeah.

Natalie: Well, I'm sorry I missed him.

Viki: I'm not. I think it would be just wonderful if none of us ever had to lay eyes on that man again.

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

Lindsay: [Disguised voice] Hi, Sally, it's -- it's Nora. No, I know it doesn't sound like me. I've got a bit of a cold. I was wondering if you have any idea where Troy is? I'm -- I -- I need to speak to him. I'd like to work things out. Rodi's. Okay. Thank you.

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

R.J.: Just leave me alone.

Nora: No.

R.J.: I don't want anybody here.

Nora: Tough. Maybe you need somebody here, okay?

R.J.: No, I don't.

Nora: Well, then, maybe I do.

R.J.: Find somebody else.

[Phone rings]

[Ring]

Nora: I'll let you get that.

[Ring]

R.J.: What?

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

Blair: Oh, no. No, there will be none of that self-pity in the Wild Hearts Losers Club.

Troy: I --

Blair: Strictly against the rules.

Troy: Clearly my bad.

Blair: Problem?

Troy: I guess, you know, I never got my rulebook, so --

Blair: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm going to have to work on that. But I'll tell you what I can do.

Troy: What's that?

Blair: I'll show you the secret handshake.

Troy: Yeah? Well, let me see the secret handshake.

Blair: Put your hand up like this -- both of them, actually -- like this --

Troy: Are you going to have to kill me when you show me this?

Blair: No, no. Just put your hands up.

Troy: Okay. Here.

Blair: Intertwine. And then you do -- well -- start -- start over again. Goes like this --

Troy: You don't know the secret handshake, do you?

Blair: No, I do. This way around like that --

Todd: What the hell is going on here?

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

Hank: Ah, good. Nora -- hey, did you get that affidavit on the Jason's Landing witness?

Nora: Hank, I -- I have to talk to you about something.

Hank: Nora, if we sit on this thing, Laurence is going to walk.

Nora: Can we just go into Bo's office --

Hank: I don't have time for that. Look, I've got to talk to Blair, go over her statement with her, and I still have another possible witness --

Nora: Hank --

Hank: I want to depose.

Nora: Shut up.

Hank: Whatever you --

Nora: Shut up! Please, come to Bo's office now.

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

Antonio: Look, don't worry about the way Mami feels about Natalie, okay? She felt the same way about Keri in the beginning, remember?

Cristian: Yeah, but Keri is R.J.'s daughter. At least you could understand where Mami's coming from. But she didn't even give Natalie a break, and she still won't. At least with Keri, you know, she got to know what a great person she was and how much you loved her and -- sorry --

Antonio: It's okay.

Cristian: Look, Antonio, maybe when things cool down a little bit --

Antonio: It's -- they won't, Cris.

Cristian: We don't know that.

Antonio: It's not like my problems are going to go away. I have a baby. I mean, there's -- there's a child involved, and I got to start thinking about that.

Cristian: It's going to be hard making a clean break, huh?

Antonio: I don't think you can. I mean, not when you love somebody the way I love her. But I -- I got to move on, and I -- I have to make sure that I don't lose my daughter.

Cristian: Well, look, if you need anything, just let me know.

Antonio: Well, I could use your help with that wall. I'm going to go pick up the sheet rock tomorrow.

Cristian: All right. Got it.

[Phone rings]

Antonio: Yeah. You sure? Yeah, yeah, thanks for letting me know. Damn her.

Cristian: What's wrong?

Antonio: Liz was spotted at the airport last night. I think she took the baby.

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

Troy: Todd, hey, what are you doing?

Todd: Shut up. This isn't about you.

Blair: It's not about you, either, Todd.

Troy: Look, man, it's not what you think.

Todd: You put the screws on me in court and take my kids away from me, and you're not even with them. You're here celebrating?

Blair: You are so out of line.

Todd: Oh, really? You weren't just giving a manicure to Dr. Feelgood over here?

Troy: All right, first of all, don't tell me to shut up. Second of all, I'm going to let that go because you don't know what --

Todd: You were all over her!

Blair: And, again, you are so stupid!

Todd: No, you know what's stupid is what you're trying to do to me! They're my children! Okay, fine, look, I know that -- that Jack doesn't know me very well, but Starr is never going to forgive you.

Blair: Get out of here, Todd.

Todd: She is going to hate you for the rest of your life -- if she doesn't hate you already.

Troy: That's enough, all right? That's enough.

Todd: And you -- you're just a notch on her belt, right? You know what happened to Sam and to that big, tall, blond guy.

Blair: Shut up, Todd!

Todd: You -- you didn't really waste much time after Nora, did you? We, I guess you didn't really waste any time when you were with Nora, so why change?

Troy: Todd, why don't you get out of here and cool off for a little bit.

Todd: Or what? What, are we going to fight? You going to go to the mat for her?

Troy: You have a real jealousy problem, don't you?

Todd: You think? I don't know. If you're asking me do I want to see you and Sam gone? Yeah, okay, that works for me.

Troy: What? What, is that some kind of threat?

Todd: No, I'm just saying that if you and Sam get struck dead --

Troy: Yeah?

Todd: I'd be a happy guy.

Blair: I'm calling the police.

Todd: Don't bother. I'm out of here.

Troy: You okay?

Blair: Yeah. I'm actually glad that it happened. What was I thinking? He's totally lost it. And I was going to give him another chance?

Troy: I don't know. Look, you want me to give you a lift home or something --

Blair: No. And let him spoil all of my fun?

[Music plays]

Blair: No, I -- I want to dance. And I want you to dance with me.

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

Nora: You need to go see your brother.

Hank: How is he?

Nora: He -- he says he wants to be alone, but he needs you.

Hank: I know what he's going through. Keri was like a daughter to me.

Nora: I'm so sorry, Hank. I'm so sorry.

Hank: I need to go see my brother.

Nora: Okay.

Antonio: Hank, Nora, I'm glad you're here. Look, I -- I think Liz left town and took the baby.

Nora: Antonio --

Antonio: What, she -- she really has gone? What are we waiting for? We need to do something before she gets too far. Look, Keri probably knows something. Let's call her.

Nora: We canít.

Antonio: Why the hell not? Hank?

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

Joey: "For I am persuaded that neither death nor life shall be able to separate us from the love of God through our Lord Christ Jesus."

Joey: You know, I prayed for Grandpa victor's salvation. I prayed that in his final moments he accepted God into his heart and asked forgiveness for his sins. Now, I don't know if that happened, but I know this -- despite all of the evil that Victor Lord perpetrated in his life, he did one very good thing. He created this family. A family full of honor, devotion, and love. And in his death, we need to find strength in each other, strength to face the evil that will surely come in the days that follow. Let's pray. Dear God, please don't let the sins of the father be visited on the children, but instead let love prevail. Deep in this love, I pray that we find true joy and happiness because that's something that can never be taken from us. In his name we pray. Amen.

Viki: Amen.

Viki: That was really lovely. Thank you so much. And I certainly hope our prayers will be answered.

Jessica: Well, it's up to us to make sure that they do.

Viki: Natalie -- I'm very, very glad that you came. Thank you. It meant the world to me.

Natalie: Well, it was the least I could do.

Viki: We are actually having a family meeting right after this to discuss what the lawyers want us to do regarding fighting Mitch. It's important that we all be there.

Natalie: I'll let you know.

Joey: Come on. Let's go home.

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

[Music plays]

Mitch: Are you all right? Of course you're not. Here, let me help.

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

Nora: We need to talk to you, Antonio.

Antonio: About what? What? You want to tell me to leave Keri alone?

Hank: No.

Antonio: Look, I already know she wants nothing to do with me.

Nora: Okay, it has nothing to do with --

Antonio: Then why the hell are you acting so strange? I just told you that Liz violated the restraining order! What is going on?

Nora: Something's happened, Antonio. Something bad.

R.J.: Go on. Go on and tell him.

Nora: R.J. --

Antonio: Tell me what?

R.J.: They are all dead because of you.

Antonio: Dead? Who's dead? Who's dead? What is --

R.J.: Keri, Elizabeth, and the baby -- they're dead. And it's your fault.

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

Natalie: Hey.

Cristian: Hey. Glad to have you back.

Natalie: Me, too.

Cristian: So, how'd it go?

Natalie: Oh, okay, I guess.

Cristian: Did Laurence show?

Natalie: Yeah, before I got there.

Cristian: Well, I'm glad you didn't have to deal with him.

Natalie: No, he's lucky he didn't have to deal with me.

Cristian: Look, Natalie, I know you really want to give it to him, but, please, just keep away from the guy.

Natalie: Look, I can't stand the fact that he -- he just stands around thinking that he can get away with everything.

Cristian: Well, he won't always. Everybody has their day, even Victor Lord.

Natalie: And he's dead and buried. Good riddance.

Cristian: How was that?

Natalie: Weird.

Cristian: Yeah, but weird how?

Natalie: I don't know. They just -- they kept talking about family this and family that. And Viki, like, she called this family meeting. I mean, I -- Roxanne -- the only family meeting she ever called was to hit me up for some money so she could go blow it on the slots, you know?

Cristian: So, you going to go?

Natalie: I don't know. Maybe.

Cristian: If you don't want to go, then don't. But I think that maybe you should.

Natalie: Why?

Cristian: Because they're your family.

Natalie: I don't feel like it.

Cristian: Well, you were starting to.

Natalie: Yeah, but just like every time I see them together, I mean, all I see is this -- this family history. You know, they have their family vacations and their holidays and growing up at Llanfair. I mean, they try to make me a part of it, but I'm not. I'm like this -- this visitor thing.

Cristian: You're not a visitor, Natalie. That's your home.

Natalie: I don't have a home. I don't have a family.

Cristian: Oh, yeah, you do -- me.

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

[Music plays]

[Song ends]

[Music plays]

Mitch: Here we go. I understand how you feel, Lindsay, but I suggest you take it out on a more appropriate target than a wine glass.

Lindsay: You don't know how I feel.

Mitch: I know you don't deserve what you've been put through.

Lindsay: You shouldn't be here.

Mitch: In fact, you have been tormented in the worst possible way by the men you loved.

Lindsay: That's not how they see it.

Mitch: Then they're the ones who don't understand how deeply you loved them and how devoted you were.

Lindsay: Some people would call it obsession.

Mitch: Yes, but others -- others would see that as loyalty, the fiercest kind of loyalty. The kind that only a woman of your kind of passion would be capable of. And they're fools if they don't appreciate that, if they don't realize it, enjoy it, cherish it. You have every right to be angry, Lindsay. You have every right to hate them for what they've done to you. But your righteous feelings -- they can't stop the pain, can they? And they won't keep them from hurting you over and over and over again. You really do -- you have to do something about it.

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

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

On the next "One Life to Live" --

Todd: I will do whatever I have to do to get my kids back, whatever it takes. And I'm coming after you.

Mitch: I know you've seen this gun before. Why should you continue to suffer?

Antonio: No, she can't be dead!

Hank: Antonio --

Antonio: No! No!
