Previously on "One Life to Live" --

Judge Grafton: I need to talk to you. It can't wait.

Viki: Is this about father's will?

Judge Grafton: I'm afraid so.

Jessica: Mitch's servant was murdered.

Natalie: Did you witness it?

Jessica: No. But I do think that Mitch did it.

Blair: You can't lie to Mitch. He's too smart.

Mitch: Now, who's that whore you sent to our bed?

[Captioning made possible by ABC, Inc.]

 

Natalie: He must be asleep.

Jessica: Mitch doesn't need lights, remember?

 

Mitch: This was suppose to be our wedding night, so why did you send that cheap call girl to our bed in your place?

Dorian: You're hurting me.

Mitch: You think I'm stupid? I am not stupid. I'm blind, but I am not stupid!

Dorian: That was me that you made love to. I swear it.

Mitch: All right, Dorian. You saw me kill a man with this blade. You want me to do the same thing to you? Now, you tell me exactly what you are up to.

 

Jessica: Careful. There could be guards outside.

Natalie: What about Lois?

Jessica: Lois is long gone.

Natalie: Yeah, well, like I said, if that guy Craig -- they found him dead on the highway. I mean, maybe Lois won't be coming back tomorrow, either. You all right?

Jessica: Let's just get this over with.

Natalie: Jess, are you sure? Look, ok, Mitch would love any excuse to cut my heart out again, ok, but you're his daughter, all right? He's not going to hurt you.

Jessica: You have no -- you have no idea. He made me swear on my life I'd never betray him. It doesn't matter who I am, Natalie. If he finds out that I'm here, then --

Natalie: He's a psycho. He's a psycho. That's no news flash. All right, let's -- let's just find what we're looking for and get the hell out of here, ok?

Jessica: Even if we could find the cane that had the blood on it --

Natalie: There's got to be a lot of incriminating stuff here.

Jessica: Let's go check Craig's room.

 

Viki: No, don't move, Cristian.

Cristian: What, I'm going to call 911.

Viki: No, no, no. You -- we can't touch anything becaus of fingerprints.

Cristian: Right.

Viki: I have my cell. I'll call.

Cristian: Good point.

Viki: My god.

Cristian: I wonder how Mitch knew that you were meeting the judge here.

[Phone rings]

Cristian: I mean, this had to be Mitch, right?

 

Officer: Llanview police department. Is this an emergency?

Viki: Yes, this is Victoria Davidson calling, and I'm calling to report t a crime, possibly a murder.

Officer: Possible homicide, line six.

Antonio: Detective. Vega.

Viki: Antonio -- oh, good. This is Victoria Davidson. Look, I'm -- I'm upstairs in Judge Grafton's chambers, right upstairs from you. Now, he's not here, but I think something probably happened to him because there's a lot of blood on the floor.

Antonio: I'm on my way. Judge?

Viki: Is the judge there?

Judge Grafton: Help me --

Antonio: Doyle, get emergency services over here now!

 

Mitch: I can just imagine how I look to you -- grotesque and deformed. Is that why you did it? Is that why you sent that whore in my bed?

Dorian: No. I don't --

Mitch: What, you think I wouldn't notice? Is that how stupid you think I am?

Dorian: My darling, I know you're not stupid. You're anything but.

Mitch: You know, Craig was stupid -- terrible memory. What about you, my dear? Do you remember what happens to people who betray me? Hmm? Yes. Now, tonight, darling, is our night.

Dorian: Mitch, please, you're going to cut me.

[Phone rings]

Dorian: Please.

Mitch: Ignore that.

Dorian: Um -- honey, I would really enjoy kissing you, but it's hard for me to ignore that knife.

Mitch: I mean the phone.

[Ring]

Dorian: The phone?

Mitch: Yes, the phone!

Dorian: I'm -- I'm sorry. I don't understand --

Mitch: What do you mean? You don't hear the phone?

Dorian: No. No, I don't.

Mitch: Answer the phone before it drives me crazy! And get rid of whoever it is!

Dorian: But I --

Mitch: Answer the phone!

Dorian: Ok. Hello? I'm sorry. Really, I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing here, ok --

[Breathing]

[Breathing]

 

Asa: Jack, I'm calling you to thank you so much for sending me your priceless art collection for our little show in Llanview. And as soon as it's over, I promise I'll ship it right back. Right. Give my love to Emma and I'll be in touch, buddy. And thanks again. Oh. What's the sour puss for?

Renee: It's Nigel, Asa.

Asa: Oh. I'll tell you, Renee -- I don't know whether to send him to boot camp or send him to a psychiatrist.

Renee: He may need electroshock. I don't know how to tell you this, but I caught him making out with Roxanne Balsom.

[Asa laughs]

Renee: You think it's funny?

Asa: Damn right. Look at them! Oh, my lord. Roxy and Nigel. No way, Jose.

 

[Breathing]

Mitch: Who is this? Who's there?

Dorian: Honey, there's nobody there.

Mitch: You're going to pay for this, whoever you are. Listen to this.

[Breathing]

Dorian: I -- I don't hear anything. No, nothing at all.

Mitch: What do you mean? It's him! It's his breathing!

Dorian: "Him"? Mitch, I don't understand. It's -- it's only a dial tone.

[Breathing]

[Dial tone]

Dorian: I don't understand what you're talking about. There isn't anybody there.

Mitch: Give it to me.

[Dial tone]

Dorian: Ooh, honey are you all right?

Mitch: They're going to pay for this.

Dorian: "They"?

Mitch: What game are you playing now, wife?

Dorian: You know, I think I'd better call your doctor. This could be your medication.

Mitch: I stopped taking it.

Dorian: Oh. Now, I want you to tell me more about this voice that you're hearing. You said "him" --

[Doorbell rings]

Dorian: What ---

Mitch: What now?

Dorian: I -- come on, really. Why do you think that they're -- this "him" or "people" are out to get you?

[Ring]

Mitch: Who's at the door?

Dorian: Why do you think there's anybody at the door?

[Knock on door]

Mitch: Look, if you think you can gaslight me, you are in for the biggest surprise of your life.

Dorian: I'm --

Mitch: Now, answer the damn door!

Dorian: Ok, ok. Let me just get my shoes, and --

[Knock]

Mitch: get down there and answer the door, damn it!

[Doorbell rings]

Dorian: All right! Stay calm.

[Ring]

 

Dorian: Who's there? Hello? Is there anybody there? Hello? Hmm. I guess there's nobody here.

Blair: Is it working?

Dorian: So far. But Marla didn't fool him for an instant.

Blair: Did he kill her?

Dorian: No. No, no, no. But when the phone rang, he was holding a knife to my throat.

Blair: Oh, my God, Dorian. Ok, ok, we have got to get out of here. Come on.

Dorian: No, no, no, no. Blair, really, it's working. It really is.

Blair: No.

Dorian: He's trying to act like he's in control, but you should've seen his face when there was all that knocking at the door. I mean, he almost lost it. Come on.

Mitch: Dorian!

Dorian: You know what to do next, right?

Dorian: I'll be right up, dear!

 

Antonio: Where the hell are the paramedics?

Judge Grafton: Lawrence --

Antonio: Was it Lawrence? It was Lawrence who shot you? He's blind, judge. Are you sure?

Judge Grafton: Sent someone --

Antonio: Have you ever seen the man? Can you describe him?

Judge Grafton: Hat low. Kept face hidden.

[Judge Grafton groans]

Antonio: Just hang in there. The paramedics are on their way. They should be here any minute.

Judge Grafton: Must tell --

Antonio: Are you sure -- how do you know it was Lawrence who sent him?

Judge Grafton: Sent -- sent him before. Taxes -- he threatened me and my daughter and my wife.

Antonio: Get someone over to the judge's house right away. The suspect might head over there. Make sure you keep his family inside!

Judge Grafton: Hurry! Hurry!

[Judge Grafton wheezes]

Viki: Oh, my god. Judge --

Judge Grafton: I'm sorry.

Viki: It's all right. What did you want to say to me?

Judge Grafton: Lord's estate --

Viki: You mean my father's will?

Judge Grafton: I'm -- I'm sorry. Lawrence threatened me. I'm so sorry. Please forgive me --

Viki: What -- what did he threaten you with, judge? What --

Antonio: Judge Grafton --

Viki: Judge --

 

Dorian: There was nobody at the door. Are you sure that you heard someone?

Mitch: Someone rang the bell.

Dorian: Well, who would do that at this hour of the night?

Mitch: What took you so long?

Dorian: Oh, I -- I searched the entire the first floor of the house just to make sure that there was nobody there. There isn't.

 

Jessica: How could I have lived here my entire life and never know that this place existed?

Natalie: Oh, don't even get me started on what you guys knew and didn't know. I mean -- oh, great, this place is just a dead end.

Jessica: Maybe. Maybe not.

Natalie: So, what's the deal, anyway? I thought that Blair and Dorian hated each other.

Jessica: I don't know. I mean, this whole thing is -- it's weird, you know? It's creepy. The doorbell, the breathing, the cell phone -- I -- come here and look at this. It's a door.

Natalie: Oh. See?

 

Dorian: Maybe you should get back in bed.

Mitch: Pour me some more champagne.

Dorian: Maybe you shouldn't have any more.

Mitch: Maybe I should.

Dorian: I only want what's best for you.

Mitch: Oh, is that why you hired that prostitute for me?

Dorian: I can't believe this. I very much regret that you feel somehow dissatisfied. Maybe if we would go to the palace -- you know, we could get the honeymoon suite --

Mitch: No, I'm not leaving here.

Dorian: If you're worried about leaving the Badhra diamond behind, we could take it with us. You could give me the code to the safe --

[Mitch laughs]

Mitch: Oh, I thought you were better than that, Dorian.

Dorian: All right, fine. We'll leave it where it is. But I think we should go out, really. A change of scene would do you good.

Mitch: No, we're going to finish what we started. Who's doing all that pacing?

Dorian: Pacing? I -- I don't hear anything.

Mitch: Who else is in here?

Dorian: Nobody is in here. Just you and me.

Mitch: Who's there?

Dorian: There's no one. Honestly.

[Dorian screams]

Mitch: Next time I won't miss! Is he gone?

Dorian: Who?

Mitch: Your little playmate.

Dorian: I'm telling you, Mitch, there is nobody here, nobody at all.

Mitch: Why did you scream?

Dorian: I screamed because I was scared. I mean, your knife is stuck in the door.

Mitch: Yeah, well --

Dorian: Oh!

[Mitch groans]

Dorian: Oh, darling.

Mitch: Who put that there?

Dorian: Nobody. Let me help you up. It's always there --

Mitch: Leave me alone.

Dorian: You probably just --

Mitch: Get out of here!

Dorian: I can't leave you alone --

Mitch: Get out!

Dorian: Let me help you! All right, fine. I'll be just outside the door. Mitch --

 

Blair: Ok. Ok, that was close. That was close. Oh, God. That was so close.

Dorian: I did everything I could do to stop him.

Blair: We have got to get out of here. He bout killed us both. Now, come on, Dorian, let's get out of here.

Dorian: No, no, no. Don't you see he's acting crazy? His paranoia's making him weaker.

Blair: Oh, you call that weak?

Dorian: No, honestly, we just need to let him stew, let his imagination run rampant.

Blair: His imagination is figuring out ways to kill you, Dorian.

Dorian: Are you with me or not?

Blair: I can't let you do this alone.

Dorian: Ok. Fine. So let's just give it a little more time and then we'll hit him with what comes next.

Blair: Well, I certainly hope you know what you're doing. I tell you what -- I feel very uncomfortable leaving you alone in this house with this man.

Dorian: It's just for a little while longer, honey. You know, the way he is -- so rattled -- a fatal accident is inevitable. So what's left for me to do is I've got to get the combination to the safe.

Blair: The combination? How?

Dorian: Yes, yes, yes, yes. I've already transferred most of the assets, and I want the Badhra diamond --

Blair: How are you going to get the combination from Mitch, huh? How?

Dorian: Well, he'll never give me the combination. So, with any luck, I'll just start to think like Mitch. Ok?

Blair: A diamond with a curse on it -- oh, lucky, lucky you.

Dorian: Just --

Blair: Be careful.

Dorian: I will. I love you.

Dorian: Think like Mitch. Think like Mitch. Messenger. M-e-s-s-e-n-g-e-R.

Dorian: Savior.

 

Antonio: The medical examiner's expecting you. Tell him I want the bullet sent straight to ballistics.

Paramedic: Right.

Antonio: I'm going to go wash up.

Cristian: So, Antonio, why aren't you sending someone over to arrest Lawrence?

Viki: Well, he can't, Cristian.

Cristian: Well, the judge said that Lawrence was behind it. We all heard him.

Viki: Yeah, but the judge couldn't identify the man who shot him.

Cristian: So he's just going to get away with it?

Antonio: We find the shooter, and forensics look for a link.

Cristian: That sucks.

Viki: Yeah, it really does.

Antonio: If I could've just kept him alive one minute longer --

Viki: Antonio, come on. You did your best.

[Antonio sighs]

Viki: Look, the fact that the judge made it in here alive means that Mitch is starting to make mistakes.

Antonio: Yeah, which makes him even more dangerous. I'm just glad we got Jessica out of that house. At least she's going to be safe with you.

Viki: Yeah.

 

Jessica: It's just sand.

Natalie: Huh. Something was in here, which means Dorian and Blair took whatever was packed in this sand.

Jessica: Did Victor Lord build this room just to hide what was ever in this box? I -- I mean, what was here?

Natalie: I don't know -- something twisted. I mean, this whole place is twisted. It's like some twisted shrine of him and mother. What'd you do down here, gramps? Count your money and stare at yourself while groping at your daughter? Bastard. Oh.

Jessica: Let's open it.

Natalie: All right.

Jessica: Can you see anything up there?

Natalie: No, it's too dark up there. You game?

Jessica: We came this far.

Natalie: Let's go.

 

[Asa laughs]

Renee: Asa, do you actually think that I would make up something like that? I saw them kissing -- Roxy and Nigel kissing.

Asa: Renee, please stop. I mean -- I mean stop or, I tell you, I'm going to bust a gut.

Renee: Do you -- you think this is funny?

Asa: Oh, please. Just think, honey. Roxy would eat Nigel alive.

Renee: Asa, I'm warning you. If you don't do something, you're going to lose Nigel.

[Asa laughs]

 

Dorian: Oh. Let's see --

[Noise]

Dorian: Jehovah. Let's see. J-e--

 

Natalie: This is as far as it goes.

Jessica: It makes no sense.

Natalie: I don't even know where we are.

Jessica: We're on the second floor. But why would Grandpa Victor need a secret passageway to get up here?

Natalie: Yeah, especially with the secret chamber underneath the stairs.

Jessica: Mitch.

Natalie: This is -- this is my old room. What -- Mitch is in here? Why?

[Noise]

 

Viki: Thank you very, very much for going with me this evening.

Cristian: I still can't believe Mitch Lawrence is running around, having people killed, and the police can't lay a hand on him.

Viki: I know. But maybe now Nora can get his bail revoked, you know? They didn't do the dishes. Oh, well, why don't you go on up? I expect Natalie's waiting for you.

Cristian: I'll give you a hand.

Viki: No, no, Cristian, I can manage.

Cristian: You sure?

Viki: No, I'm positive. Good night.

Cristian: Ok. Good night.

Viki: Detective. Vega, please.

[Phone rings]

Antonio: Detective Vega.

Viki: Antonio, hi. It's Viki Davidson again.

Cristian: Natalie --

Viki: Look, I had a thought about how to get Mitch's bail -

Cristian: Natalie's gone.

Viki: What did you say?

Cristian: Natalie's not here.

Viki: Oh, my god. Antonio, Cristian and I just got back to the house and Natalie's gone.

Antonio: What about Jessica?

Viki: I don't know. Hang on. Let me look.

[Dial tone]

 

Jessica: Oh, my God. Your old room -- this room used to be mom's room when she was a child.

Natalie: That's when --

Jessica: Grandpa Victor went up to her room at night. Let's get out of here.

Jessica: Natalie. Natalie?

 

Dorian: Oh -- Jessica, what are you doing home?

Jessica: I just got home.

Dorian: Oh. I thought you were spending the night with your mother.

Jessica: I changed my mind. Mitch sounded upset on the phone, so --

Dorian: I didn't hear the front door.

Jessica: I was trying to be quiet. Is my father ok?

[Natalie screams]

 

Blair: I know it's a lot to ask. And it's not without risk, but I assume that you hate Mitch as much as Dorian and I. Does that mean that you'll help us?

 

Dorian: No, let me.

Mitch: Come out, you bastard! I'll slit your bloody throat!

Dorian: Mitch?

[Mitch screams]

Dorian: Mitch? Mitch, what is it? Stop it! Mitch, what's the matter?

Mitch: The intruder!

Dorian: What intruder?

Mitch: Look! Look!

Dorian: Stop, stop, stop, please. I'll look. I'll check. Don't worry. I'm looking. I'm checking on --

Mitch: Look! What are you doing?

Dorian: I'm -- I'm just looking very, very carefully. It's a large closet. And -- yeah, all I see is that you have managed to do a hack job on your beautiful wardrobe -- Savile row --

Mitch: Don't tell me you didn't hear that scream.

Dorian: No. What scream were you talking about?

Mitch: Why did you come running up here then?

Dorian: Because your daughter came home.

Mitch: Jessica?

Jessica: I'm here.

Mitch: Jessica. You heard that scream, didn't you?

Jessica: No. Maybe it was me.

Mitch: What?

Jessica: I thought everyone was asleep. Dorian startled me.

Mitch: No, the scream came from in the closet!

Jessica: I -- I didn't hear anything.

Mitch: Jessica, you are my daughter. You are the only thing that matters to me. Swear to me on your mother's life that no one was in here.

Jessica: No one was in there.

Mitch: Swear.

[Knock on door]

Dorian: Now, that I hear.

Antonio: Lawrence?

[Doorbell rings]

Antonio: Lawrence, open up!

[Pounding]

[Ring]

Antonio: Lawrence!

Dorian: What in the world -- what's going on?

Viki: Jessica!

Dorian: Oh, Viki --

Viki: Oh, thank God you're safe.

Jessica: Why wouldn't I be?

Antonio: You were supposed to stay put.

Jessica: I was worried about Mitch.

Dorian: Do you have any idea what time of night it is?

Cristian: Where's Natalie?

Jessica: She was going to bed when I left. I figured she was out looking for you.

Mitch: What is going on here?

Antonio: I'm taking Jessica into custody as a material witness in the murder investigation of Craig Lombard.

Jessica: No --

Mitch: How dare you? My lawyer just took out an injunction to stop you people from dragging me in on bogus charges, and now you are harassing my daughter? I'm calling my lawyer.

Antonio: You do that, lawrence.

Mitch: This is an outrage. Jessica. Jessica!

Dorian: Jessica. J-e-s-s-o-c-a. Oh. No. Think like Mitch Lawrence. Spell it backwards.

Dorian: Aha!

[Dorian chuckles]

Dorian: Hello, beautiful.

 

Nigel: Foxy Roxy, I need you. It's like a hot, burning sensation in my --

Asa: What the hell are you whispering about?

Nigel: I told you, too much cayenne gives Mr. Buchanan heartburn. A hot, burning -- well, you get the point.

Renee: "Hot, burning" -- do you believe me now?

Nigel: I was just talking to your new chef. But I didn't want the local barflies to hear you have a sensitive stomach.

Asa: Lower your voice.

Nigel: Acid reflux -- it's very common.

Asa: You see? Oh, Renee, you read it all wrong. Come on, Nigel. I knew I could count on you. Let's go home.

Nigel: Oh, after you, sir.

Asa: Yes.

 

[Door squeaks]

Natalie: Mom. You scared me.

Viki: Well, that makes three of us.

Cristian: Where the hell have you been?

Viki: You took a terrible, terrible risk tonight. I'm very glad you're safe, though. And I'm really, frankly, too tired to get into it with you now, but I'm sure that Cristian will deal with it thoroughly. Good night.

Natalie: Good night.

Natalie: Cris, I had to, ok? Jessica was going to do it by herself --

Cristian: The two of you could have gotten yourselves killed, Natalie. Now, you know how Mitch feels about you. He would have killed you in a second if he saw you in his house. And nobody -- nobody knew where you were. You promised. You promised you'd stay here and lock the door. I mean, how difficult is that? What's so funny?

Natalie: Because if you're this mad at me, that must mean that you really, really love me.

Cristian: Well, don't push your luck.

Natalie: Where's Jessica?

Cristian: She's in a safe place.

 

Jessica: You can't do this to me! I know my rights, Antonio! You can't lock me up just because I didn't listen to you.

Antonio: Believe it or not, I'm doing this for your own good.

Jessica: Ugh!

 

Dorian: I don't understand. Why did you make me get dressed? Where are we going?

Mitch: To where you put the jewel.

Dorian: I -- I don't know anything about what you're talking about.

Mitch: Shut up.

Dorian: I didn't take it.

Mitch: It's gone.

Dorian: Well, I haven't --

Mitch: I said shut up. Now, don't make it any worse for yourself by lying to me. I'm going to give you 10 seconds. If you don't tell me where the diamond is by then, I am going to slit your throat. 10, nine, eight, seven, six --

[Loud breathing]

Stay tuned for scenes from the next "one life to live."

 

On the next "One Life to Live" --

Troy: Believe me, Flash, this is very serious.

Flash: I can just take a few pills, right?

Rex: So, how come you didn't sic them on me?

Jen: You're my friend.

Antonio: Jessica, I'll do what I have to to keep you safe.

Blair: You are cursed!
