Previously on "One Life to Live" --

Jen: I stopped by her gallery, and Mitch Laurence was there and mom had a gun.

Mitch: I know you've seen this gun before.  You saw Todd Manning throw it away. Troy shouldn't be allowed to treat you like this with Blair. Why didn't you kill me when you had the chance?

Todd: I ought to kill you now.

Mitch: Too late.

Lindsay: Goodbye, Troy.

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

Nora: Sit.

Natalie: I did sleep with Mitch. I mean, why are you so upset?

Nora: Because possibly it couldn't be true.

Natalie: Okay, I know I said that I didn't sleep with him --

Nora: Because you didn't.

Natalie: But we did consummate the marriage.

Nora: Really? When?

Natalie: In Vegas that night, before we came back to Llanview.

Nora: Then why did you claim that never happened?

Natalie: Because I didn't want Cristian to look at me like that and think of me that way -- having sex. And then Mom -- and then when I found out Mitch Laurence was --

Nora: All right, Natalie, this is the problem with lying -- you have to keep pumping out the lies to cover the first one.

Natalie: I slept with Mitch, which means I cannot have an annulment, which means divorce.

Nora: Which means a healthy settlement, huh?

Natalie: Why not? I mean, I was thinking of half. Are we going to get some service around here?

Nora: Okay, now, let me explain to you what happens if you stick with this ridiculous story, okay?

Natalie: It's not a story.

Nora: If you go on the stand and swear under oath that you slept with Mitch Laurence, Mitch Laurence's attorney, a very smart woman by the name of Evangeline Williamson -- do you remember her?

Natalie: Mm-hmm.

Nora: She's going to put you on the stand, and she will cross-examine you and ask for every single detail. In front of Cristian, his mother, your mother, and everyone else in that courtroom. She's going to want to know everything. Every moan, every groan, every gasp of pleasure. Where your hands went, where his hands went, and everything that he whispered to you while he was consummating your marriage and then Mitch's attorney is going to slice your testimony like a razor blade, lie by lie. And after she has completely discredited you, perjury means prison. Is that what you want?

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

Cristian: Hey, Antonio.

Antonio: What, are you following me?

Cristian: Look, man, you can't just go to work and pretend that nothing's happened.

Antonio: Cris, I am on duty. I have a job. I'll talk to you later.

Cristian: I'm serious, man; you got to deal with this.

Antonio: Listen to me. Im fine. I do not need you baby-sitting me.

Cristian: I'm just worried about you. Look, whether you admit it or not, you're going through some stuff. I mean, you just lost Keri and the baby --

Antonio: Look, I have a job I'm supposed to do, and I am doing it.

Cristian: Yeah, but you can't deny that something's wrong.

Bo: Gentlemen? What's up?

Antonio: Nothing much, Commissioner. I'm on my way over to Angel Square, check on that possible O.D.

Cristian: Antonio, please.

Bo: Antonio, I don't have a problem with you taking this case.

Antonio: Thanks. I appreciate that, Sir.

Bo: But before you leave, I'm going to need your gun.

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

Lindsay: Oh, God

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

Mitch: What's the matter, Doctor? Didn't expect a house call from Lindsay? Hmm? Rappaport.

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

Jen: Come on, come on, be there.

[Phone rings]

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

Joey: Andrew has me here visiting some of the parishioners. It's so strange, sitting down to counsel people you hardly know. I don't know if I'll ever get used to it.

Troy: Oh, sure you will. I mean, you're new at this --

Man: We need help!

Troy: What happened?

Man: I don't know, man. He just lost it.

Troy: Is he on something?

Joey: I think I know --

Troy: Guys, your friend's life may depend on it. Now, was he on something?

Man: I think so. Listen; I don't want any trouble, okay, man?

Troy: Yes, just get him into this room. Come on! Careful. Start him on oxygen and open a line. We're going to need a tox screen. Set up to intubate.

Joey: Hey! Hey! Get back here!

Flash: Hey, you guys, where are you going? It's all right. It's all right. They wouldn't let me ride with them.

Troy: Is this your friend?

Flash: Yeah, but -- please, you got to help him, okay?

Joey: Talk to the doctor.

Flash: I tried everything. I tried everything --

Joey: Time is critical.

Troy: Do you know if your friend was using drugs?

Flash: No, no, I -- I mean, he said that he was doing a few hits of ecstasy.

Troy: Ecstasy.

Flash: Yeah. He got in the car with some guy, and they were there for a really, really long time, and I don't know what happened after that. You got to save him. Please save him.

Troy: Okay, okay, okay, okay. Joey, can you do me a favor? Can you take her outside? Stick around, all right? I may need some more information.

Joey: All right. His name's Riley.

Troy: Thank you.

Flash: God, I could kill that guy, man, you know?

Joey: Well, he's in the hospital now. His chances are much better. Now, what about you?

Flash: What do you mean, about me?

Joey: Are you using anything? Because if you are, it could be dangerous --

Flash: I'm not using drugs!

Joey: Got it.

Flash: Why the hell would you care, anyway?

Joey: Because somebody has to.

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

[Phone rings]

Jen: Oh. Dad, why do you even have a cell phone if you never leave it on? You never returned my last message. I need to know if you found Mom, okay? She's been acting so weird lately. I know she's going to do something. Call me, okay? Call me as soon as you get this.

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

[Phone rings]

Officer: Llanview police. Do you have an emergency? Llanview police. Is there anyone there? Hello? Can you hear me? Because I'm not hearing you.

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

Antonio: Look, Commissioner, I -- you have it all wrong. I mean, I have this whole situation under control. If you think that the same thing is going to happen that happened with Ben Davidson, you --

Bo: It's a regulation. See, I don't have a choice. And neither do you.

Cristian: I still think you should take some time off --

Antonio: Nobody asked you, little brother. Right now what I should be doing is working. It's something I'm good at. It's something I can do.

Cristian: Isn't there a way we can have him sit and make him deal with all this stuff or something?

Bo: He'll deal -- in his own way. Just have some faith in him. He's strong. Antonio will pull through this.

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

[Music plays]

Natalie: The jukebox has got the best selection. I --

Nora: Natalie, skip the small talk, please. You have to make a decision if you're going to stick with this story all the way through a court case. It will be a disaster.

Natalie: What choice do I have? I have to tell the truth, right?

Nora: Then perhaps you should do that.

Natalie: I am. And just think, you know, how much this is going to help out Mom. I mean, if I can get half of Mitch's net worth --

Nora: Natalie, for God's sake, what the hell do you think you're doing? Life is too precious for you to be throwing it away for money. I'm sorry. I just lost some friends in a plane accident, and I'm not handling it as well as I thought I was.

Natalie: Oh, I'm sorry, Nora.

Nora: No, I'm sorry. I just want you to understand, okay? If you go to court and you swear under oath that you slept with Mitch Laurence and the court finds out that you're lying --

Natalie: Listen, I'm going to say that I slept with Mitch because I did. And it's not like you've got to go up and give your version to the judge, right?

Nora: Oh, no, because I'm not even going to be there. I'm in the district attorney's office now, remember?

Natalie: Yeah, but, I mean, you're n going to finish handling any of your cases?

Nora: No, it's not allowed. I turned over my entire caseload to Sam Rappaport. Who, by the way, you better tell the truth to.

Natalie: He's Jen's dad. I mean, that could be a problem. I mean, he's got a great reputation.

Nora: Oh, he's brilliant. And he's not going to believe this schlock, either. And no good lawyer would ever put a witness on the stand when he knows she's going to lie.

Natalie: Okay. I'll keep that mind. I'd better call Mr. Rappaport.

Nora: Never mind, it's late. Best wait till morning.

Natalie: Yeah. Morning.

Nora: Natalie? One more time --

Natalie: Okay, come on, I heard you, okay?

Roxy: Oh! Thanks for the beer bath. Sorry.

Nora: Just what I needed.

Roxy: Boy, you really got her pantyhose in a knot.

Natalie: She's cranky. She's actually not going to be handling my divorce case anymore. She's with the D.A.'s office now.

Roxy: Who you divorcing?

Natalie: My husband?

Roxy: I thought you were going to get an "annihilment."

Natalie: You can't get an annulment when you've consummated the marriage.

Roxy: But I thought you never slept with the creep.

Natalie: Oh, I just said that so that Cristian wouldn't feel bad.

Roxy: Oh. Really?

Natalie: Yeah, it was just that one time -- in Vegas. But now that means -- I mean, it still counts, so that means I have to get a divorce.

Roxy: Well, at least you're getting paid for putting out.

Natalie: Definitely.

Roxy: You go, girl. You sock it to him for everything that he's worth.

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

Mitch: Looks like you won't be testifying against me after all.

Mitch: Great. Well, Blair, your ability to stay alive is really quite astounding.

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

Joey: Riley -- he means a lot to you, doesn't he?

Flash: Yeah. He's a good guy. I mean, I'm not a groupie or anything.

Joey: No, I get it.

Flash: Why are you here?

Joey: Well, Rev. Carpenter had me visiting some of the parishioners.

Flash: Guess ministers got really rotten working hours, huh?

Joey: Sometimes. But I'm not really a minister yet, remember? Just a curate.

Flash: I'm really glad that you were here because if you weren't, I'd go crazy with nobody to talk to. Even if you are just a curate.

Joey: Well, glad I could be of a little help. So, I did some more checking about C.J. Found some more information. Maybe something will turn up. His father's been looking for him, hasn't been able to find him, so I don't know how much luck we're going to have.

Flash: His dad's got big bucks, huh?

Joey: Very big.

Flash: What is taking so long?

Antonio: Hey, you. You the one who came in with the guy who O.D.'d?

Flash: Yeah. Why? Who the hell are you?

Antonio: Det. Vega, L.P.D. Now, listen closely because you're only going to get one chance, then I'm going to cuff you and show you what life's like behind bars. First, we're going to start out with your name, then I want the name of the guy who O.D.'d and the name of the dealer. You got it? You listening to me, little girl?

Joey: Antonio, hold on --

Antonio: This is police business, so stay the hell out of it, Buchanan.

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

Bo: Right now Antonio's drowning. And work is the only way he can get air. When he figures out another way, then he'll start to grieve.

Cristian: Yeah. Yeah, you're right.

Bo: How's Natalie?

Cristian: She's good. Oh, which reminds me, I probably should get home to her.

Bo: All right, well, I'll let you know how your brother's doing, okay?

Cristian: Thanks, Commissioner, for everything. Hey, Nora.

Nora: Just the man I was hoping to see.

Cristian: Oh, yeah? What's up?

Nora: I just came from having a conversation with Natalie over at Rodi's.

Cristian: Rodi's?

Nora: Mm-hmm. I suggest you get down there and talk to her before she does something foolish.

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

Natalie: Victor Lord gave his entire fortune over to Mitch.

Roxy: No way.

Natalie: Yeah. And now Mom and her entire family have to give up a lot.

Roxy: So if Mitch has all the bucks and you get a divorce, he's going to have to fork over a bundle.

Natalie: Let's hope so. Because Mom can use all the help she can get.

Roxy: Well, honey, you know, maybe I could help you testify in court or whatever.

Natalie: Roxy, what would you say? That you came in and stole the chocolates off our pillows while Mitch and I were going at it?

Roxy: Not exactly. No, what I could say is you called me right after and you filled me in on all the juicy details.

Natalie: Wait a minute. What's going on here? Are you looking for some sort of handout when I walk out of the courtroom?

Roxy: A handout? Me? No, I don't need a handout. It's just that I saw this abandoned beauty parlor in Angel Square, and, you know, everybody's telling me that I'm very handy with my hair. And, you know, I went to beauty school before I hooked up with Wally. And I was thinking, you know, maybe I could take over the joint. You know, I think that would be a gas.

Natalie: Right, and I could be your first customer and you could turn my hair back to its natural color?

Roxy: You got a problem being a blonde? You know, but I could style it so it's not laying there just like a lummox. You know, and I could train you, and, you know, you could work in the chair next to me. We could be a team.

Natalie: No, thanks.

Roxy: Okay. You could be a silent partner. And I promise you, if you back me, I'm going to bring in the bucks. Do you think in the meantime, though, maybe you could spot me a 20? I was going to buy a bottle of vodka after I pay for the beer.

Cristian: Hey. What are you doing at Rodi's? Oh, and I just spoke to Nora. She said that you were about to do something that you shouldn't?

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

Mitch: Lindsay?

Lindsay: I -- I murdered him. I murdered him.

Mitch: Okay, okay. I know what happened. I can help you.

Lindsay: I don't even know how I got there.

Mitch: What?

Lindsay: I opened my eyes, and I was just standing there and I had a gun in my hand.

Mitch: All right, never mind. I will take care of everything.

Lindsay: And I -- I had the gun and I pointed it at him --

Mitch: No, listen to me --

Lindsay: And then I killed Troy. I killed him, but he deserved to die, didn't he? Didn't he, Mitch?

Mitch: Troy?

Lindsay: Yes, yes, I shot him. I thought it was a bad dream. I thought it was a bad dream, and it was -- it was a really bad dream!

Mitch: Listen to me. Get yourself together here. From now on, it is about survival. Do you understand me? Now, give me these gloves. Help me here, will you, please? These are going to have powder residue on them, and we can't have that. Do you have any wine?

Lindsay: Yes, it's there.

Mitch: Good.

Lindsay: I don't want wine.

Mitch: When I was here earlier, we talked about art, before your daughter came here and interrupted us. Do you remember that?

Lindsay: Yes.

Mitch: Good. Now, here's what happened later. Drink. I came back. Drink, Lindsay. All right. We talked more about art. Then we went to Rodi's. Afterwards, we came back here. We had more wine. We spent the entire evening together. Do you understand that?

Lindsay: I -- I thought it was a dream, but it wasn't.

Mitch: Stop with the dreams, all right? Todd shot him, not you. Todd was in a jealous rage. He went into Blair's bedroom, and he fired his gun. He left the gun there, so no one will connect you with what happened. You're free. Do you understand me? You're not going to have to go to prison.

Lindsay: Todd did it. We were here all evening.

Mitch: Good. Now, there's one more thing that you need to know. After I've told you, I want you to go straight to bed. Do you understand me?

Lindsay: Yes.

Mitch: I'm afraid there was a -- a bit of a surprise in Blair's bedroom.

Lindsay: What kind of surprise?

Mitch: The man who was shot --

Lindsay: Troy?

Mitch: I want you to listen to me very carefully. It's very important. Do you hear me?

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

[Knock on door]

Jen: Mom, open up! It's me!

Lindsay: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Mitch: No. No, no, no, no, no. This is good. Actually, this is very, very good. I want you to act completely normal, if you can do that. Please.

Jen: Mom -- what's he doing back here? Mom, what's going on?

Jen: Mom, what's wrong?

Mitch: Wrong? Why, nothing at all. Aside from the considerable damage we've done to this very fine bottle of wine, we've been having a wonderful, marvelous time. Haven't we, Lindsay? We've been discussing postmodernism in the post Freudian --

Jen: Mother, are you insane? Why is he here? He's dangerous. Why aren't you saying anything?

Mitch: Lindsay, your daughter seems to be a bit nervous. Perhaps you could put her mind at ease.

Lindsay: I know that he's dangerous, Jen.

Jen: Then why is he here?

Lindsay: Because he is buying art -- a lot of art -- and that's what I do here. That's my business. I sell art. I want to sell it all -- the whole gallery!

Mitch: Yes! My goodness, wouldn't that be a coupe. Sell everything, huh?

Jen: I want you out of here. Now -- or I'll call the cops.

Mitch: Fine, fine, fine. Lindsay, I want to thank you again for a delightful evening. Pull yourself together, or they'll strap you to a table and shove a needle up in your arm.

Jen: What are you saying to her?

Mitch: Can you do this?

Lindsay: Yes, I'm fine. I'll be fine.

Jen: I said now, Mr. Laurence.

Mitch: All right, of course. Lindsay, once again, I'm sorry for keeping you up so late. You really should get some sleep. Jennifer, good night.

Jen: Where's Daddy?

Lindsay: I don't know.

Jen: I don't understand. I mean, I've called everywhere. I've called him at home, on his cell phone. It's like he disappeared. And he was supposed to talk to you.

Lindsay: I haven't seen your father.

Jen: What's wrong with you? I mean, you're acting so weird, and -- what is this about selling the gallery?

Lindsay: I'm supposed to go to bed now.

Jen: "Supposed to"?

Lindsay: It's late.

Jen: Well, yeah, but --

Lindsay: You should go. You go on now. I love you.

Jen: I love you, too. Make sure you talk to Dad, okay?

Lindsay: Okay.

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

[Music plays]

Roxy: Sounds like old lover boy isn't up on the latest.

Natalie: Goodbye, Roxy.

Roxy: All right, all right, I'm going. Don't forget about my little business. Hey, and listen, big guy, don't go getting macho on my little girl over here. It's not like she was a virgin before she got married --

Natalie: Okay, bye-bye, now. Go, go, go, go, go, go. Get. Bye.

Roxy: All right, all right, I'm going -- I'm out of here.

Cristian: So, what's going on? What was Nora talking about?

Natalie: Oh, she was just upset because I'm going to give Mitch the divorce he said he wanted.

Cristian: Wait, you mean the annulment.

Natalie: Divorce.

Cristian: Wait, I thought there was a whole legal point here -- that you can't get a divorce because you never slept with the guy, which means you were never married.

Natalie: Actually, we -- we did. I didn't want anyone, especially you, to know. Or Mom. But, yeah, the night that we got married, we went upstairs and -- you know.

Cristian: That's what you told Nora. Oh, no wonder she was acting all weird.

Natalie: It's true.

Cristian: Stop, okay? I was with your mom and the commissioner when they busted in on you at The Palace, remember? I know.

Natalie: Okay, nobody knows, Cristian. I mean, nobody knows but Mitch and myself. And frankly, I don't care if you believe me or not because really the only one who has to believe me is the divorce court judge.

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

Antonio: I really don't have time for this. If her friend dies, that's rough. But if someone else dies because someone here didn't help me get the pusher off the street, then it's on their head. You and I -- we are going to talk. I hope your friend makes it.

Flash: Man, cops are all the same.

Joey: Antonio's not usually like this.

Flash: Maybe not in front of you.

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

Jen: Is Dr. MacIver here? I need to talk to him. It's really important.

Nurse: Dr MacIver is in with a critical patient right now, but I will let him know that you're here. It might take a while.

Jen: I don't care. I'll wait.

Nurse: Okay.

Joey: Is it someone in your family?

Jen: What?

Joey: The reason you're here -- is it a family member or --

Jen: I've got my own reasons, okay?

Joey: I'm sorry. It's just hospitals can be a tough place, especially if you're alone.

Jen: What, is something wrong with Jessica or your mom?

Joey: No, no, a friend of a friend. So, I guess we're going to be working together.

Jen: Excuse me?

Joey: I read a report that you had some court-mandated community service? They're sending you to the community center? You're working for me.

Jen: Oh, you've got to be kidding me.

Joey: Relax; I'm not a slave driver.

Jen: Great. Another Buchanan telling me what to do.

Troy: Your friend Riley is conscious and stable. He's also a very lucky young man.

Flash: Great. Thank you. Can I please go see him now?

Troy: Sure, go on in.

Joey: Thanks.

Jen: Dr. MacIver, you've got to help me. I'm really worried about my mom.

Troy: Jen, look, Lindsay and I -- you know, we kind of had a --

Jen: I think she's going to kill herself. Please, you've got to help me. Just talk to her, please.

Troy: Well, what about your dad? Can't he talk to her?

Jen: I can't find him! It's like he dropped off the face of the earth. I need someone to help her now. Please. Please, she'll listen to you.

Troy: Jen, I'm sorry. You're going to have to find another doctor or call the police. I just -- I can't get involved with your mother again. I'm sorry.

Jen: If something happens to her, it'll be your fault.

Troy: Jen --

Joey: Hey, I can't thank you enough, Troy.

Troy: Yeah. Yeah, right. Like I said, he's a very lucky young man. But, you know, if he keeps using drugs, his luck's going to run out.

Joey: Yeah.

Troy: It's just a good thing that his friend was there and realized he was in trouble.

Joey: Yeah, she thought she saw something wrong, got a little worried.

Troy: Yeah.

Joey: Good thing she decided to do something about it, not just let someone else worry about it.

Troy's voice: You're sick.

Lindsay's voice: Don't --

Troy's voice: You need help, Lindsay.

Lindsay's voice: Don't --

Troy's voice: You need professional help.

Lindsay's voice: No --

Troy's voice: How many times do I have to tell you? I don't want to be with you at all.

Lindsay: Don't say that.

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

Mitch: If I were you, I wouldn't be able to help myself, either. I would just keep picturing Troy holding Blair in his arms, dancing with her, sharing their intimate little secrets.

Nora's voice: Bo, Clint, Sam, Troy -- they don't love you. They never did. That's all we talk about behind your back. That's all we laugh about you behind your back.

Lindsay: Goodbye, Troy.

[Phone rings]

Sam's voice: This is Sam Rappaport. Leave a message, and I'll get back to you.

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

[Answering machine beeps]

Todd's voice: I ought to kill you, you bastard!

Mitch: Ah, the wonders of technology.

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

Nurse: So, I'll bet you're glad to be taking her home today.

Woman: Oh, I was so scared. I don't know what I would have done if anything had happened to my little girl. I might well have died myself.

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

Cristian: Why would you want everyone to know that you slept with that sleaze bag, anyway?

Natalie: Well, you know what? I really don't care what other people think. In fact, everyone -- everyone hates me, anyway.

Cristian: No, they don't.

Natalie: Oh, really? Everyone at L.U., and -- let's see -- your mom, Jessica, my mom --

Cristian: I'm not going to let you do this.

Natalie: Why don't you try and stop me.

Bartender: Hey. Two coffees and a beer. That's $4.75.

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

[Lindsay gasps]

Lindsay: Troy? Troy? No. No, it can't be. No, you're -- no. No. No! No! No!

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

Blair: Troy, you're kind of heavy, man. You --

Blair: No!

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

Mitch: Hello, Mr. Manning. Welcome to the last day of your life.

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

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

On the next "One Life to Live" --

Natalie: I hate Mitch at least as much as the rest of you do. And after all, I am the one who slept with him.

Lindsay: You're alive?

Troy: Of course I'm alive. Why wouldn't I be?

Todd: Who is it I'm supposed to have murdered?

Blair: Oh, Sam.
