Previously on "One Life to Live" --

Nora: It's your mother. It's bad. We need a doctor now. 

Nora: Troy, do you have something in your bag that you could give to Mr. Cole to help his pain?

Mitch: I may be getting my sight back. For God's sake, who are you?

Jessica: Mitch left everything to me?

Bo: You got nothing.

[Captioning made possible by ABC, Inc.]


Troy: This woman's had a heart attack. We need to get her to a hospital soon.

Cole: Nobody leaves!


Mitch: No. no! they won't get away with it. I'll punish --

[Mitch coughs]

Mitch: No -- where -- where's Jessica?

Man: Just sit still. You've had a bad fall.

Mitch: Who are you?

Man: I was walking on the docks when I saw you fall from the second floor. I pulled you out of the river. You're ok -- just shaken up and having some nightmares.

Mitch: Not nightmares. It's the truth. They tried to kill me.

Man: Who are you talking about?

Mitch: Lindsay, Blair, Dorian -- my wife.


Dorian: Ah, Viki. I think this is a big improvement over the stodgy still life that was there, don't you?

Viki: Well, I'd say it's a question of taste -- or not.

Dorian: Oh, and I managed to save this for you. I'm sure an art restorer can do a great job on that. And won't it cozy up that sweet, little cottage you're living in?

Viki: You can take both portraits with you when you leave. As you very well know, Llanfair belongs to Jessica now. Once Mitch's will goes through probate, you're out.

Dorian: As you very well know, I am contesting that will.

Viki: Have you come up with a specific reason for that?

Dorian: Oh, yes, indeed. Mm-hmm. My husband could not have been in his right mind when he changed his will -- posttraumatic stress syndrome. Yes, he couldn't have been thinking very clearly, killing himself like that when we'd just gotten married.

Viki: Look, I have more than enough evidence to overturn my father's last will. once that happens, Dorian, the entire estate reverts to me, Todd, and the rest of Victor's family.

Dorian: We'll just see about that.

Viki: Indeed we will. So I guess it's just a matter of time now before you're out on the street again, so to speak?


Natalie: Mrs. Vega, listen -- Cristian and Antonio -- they're outside, and they're finding a way to get us out of here, ok?

Troy: I don't think you realize how serious this is.

Cole: You back off and shut up.

Marcie: It's all going to be all right.

Cole: All of you, shut up!

Flash: Why don't you just leave us alone!

Nora: Ok, Mr. Cole? You need to relax. You don't want to do this.

Cole: You stop your sniveling before I give you something to really cry about!

Al: We never know how much we can stand until we're right up against it. Sometimes the things that scare us look so big, we need somebody there to remind us how strong we really are.

[Music plays]

Natalie: Mrs. Vega, I'm going to take care of you, I promise.

Cole: Where the hell is that aspirin?

[Phone rings]

Nora: Why don't you just answer the phone already? It could be them saying they've got your car and your money, and then you can -- the faster you get that, the faster you can get out of here.

Cole: I'll answer it when I'm good and ready.


Troy: Cole, we got to get this woman to a hospital.

Nora: Is that what you want? Do you want a murder charge on you?

Cole: I don't give a damn if it's one of you or all six of you.


Natalie: It's going to be ok.


Andrew: Oh! oh, man. I've got to tell you something. It's so good to see you relaxed for once.

Joey: Well, I've been working hard, trying to impress my new boss.

Andrew: Yeah, you know, you've got nothing left to give if you don't keep a little something for yourself, Joe.

Joey: Let's just play.

Andrew: No, wait a second. Wait a second. You know, you've been going nonstop since you came to Llanview. I don't want to order you to get a life, but get a life. All right, you want to talk business? We'll talk business. How's it going with Jen Rappaport?

Joey: Fine. You were right. Jen had the wrong idea about our relationship. But I sat her down, straightened her out, told her I was her counselor, nothing more.


Rae: Hey.

Jen: This is a total waste of time.

Rae: Jen, professional counseling is part of your sentence. Now, Joey Buchanan as your supervisor wanted me to --

Jen: I'm not a thief. It was just a one-time thing.

Rae: Ok. Good. Let's sit down. Let's talk about that. Why would you suddenly feel that you had to break into a hotel room and steal from someone?

Jen: Maybe because my mom went nuts and killed my dad and I thought I was going to go nuts, too.

Rae: Is that it? Is that -- is that what you're afraid of?

Jen: No. Look -- when I was with Cristian, I just -- I made a mistake. When he rejected me, I wasn't expecting that. But I'm not like my mom. I learned from that. I'm not going to spend the rest of my life just jumping from one rejection to another.


Dorian: Until Mitch's will is probated, this house belongs to me. so I would like you to leave.

Viki: Fine. Please be aware that I do have an inventory of everything in this house, and I mean everything down to the last door hinge. If I find anything missing, if there is a light switch missing, I will have you arrested.

Dorian: Hmm. I wonder if I possibly could've overlooked something.

[Phone rings]

Viki: Hello.

Bo: Viki, it's Bo. We have a situation at The Diner at Angel Square. I'm afraid Natalie's involved.


[Music plays]

Al: Yo, slick, did Marcie Walsh call?

Man: Not yet.

Al: Listen, she was supposed to stop by. So if she does call, please let me know?

Man: Sure thing.

Al: Ok.

[Song ends]

Al: Wherever you are tonight, you're not alone.


[Music plays]

Al: There's somebody out there thinking about you. And, hey, maybe you're thinking about them, too. and maybe that thought will help you make it through the night.

Marcie: Is there anything I can do to help?

Troy: No, thank you. We can't put this off much longer, Cole.

Nora: This woman's never done anything to you. Do you really want her death on your conscience?

Cole: If it wasn't for the damn Vegas, I wouldn't be in this mess.

Natalie: Are you nuts?

Cole: You're Cristian's girl, aren't you?

Nora: Do you really want your mother to find out that you could've saved a woman's life and you refused?

Cole: You shut up about my mother!

Nora: If Mrs. Vega dies, you're looking at murder two. Help me out here! Let her leave! I'll testify that you -- you showed compassion.

Cole: Uh-uh. I ain't going back to prison. I'll die first.

Troy: I'm not just going to stand here and watch this woman suffer, Cole.

[Phone rings]

Cole: This is Avery. I'm sending out your suffering mom.

Antonio: Dr. MacIver's coming out with my mother.

Nora: Thank you.


Bo: This is the commissioner. Hold your fire. We got hostages coming out.

Cristian: Who's coming out? mom!

Hank: All right, get out of the way. Move, move. Let's get an ambulance right away. Come on.

Antonio: We're going to get you to a hospital, ok? Go with her. Go with her.

Cristian: Natalie's still --

Antonio: Look, don't worry about that, ok? I will get her out, I promise, all right? She needs you. Look, Cris, wait -- did mami ever get the air conditioning fixed?

Cristian: No. No, why?

Antonio: Just -- go, go. Tell her I love her, ok?

[Phone rings]

Bo: Buchanan.

Cole: Where's the money and the car?

Bo: We're working on it. I think it's time for you to show some good faith. Let me talk to one of the hostages. This is a deal breaker, Avery.


Cole: You. Tell him you're alive and nothing more.

Nora: Bo?

Bo: You ok?

Nora: We're fine.

Bo: All right, listen. Avery's mother -- she's his Achilles' heel. See if you can work on that.

Nora: Uh-huh.

Cole: That aspirin that quack gave me didn't do a damn thing. You tricked me, didn't you?

Nora: What?

Cole: You tricked me!

Nora: No!

Cole: That's why I'm feeling so spacey.

Flash: Hey, hey, hey, Cole -- couldn't possibly be because you're in the middle of a kidnapping, now, could it, huh? Huh?

Cole: Shut up. Shut up!

Cole: One of you is going to pay for this -- right now!


Rae: It's very important to you, isn't it, that you be loved?

Jen: Sure, it is.

Rae: Has anyone ever made you feel that way?

Jen: My dad. And Cristian at first. We would still be together if it weren't for Flash.

Rae: Flash?

Jen: I mean Natalie.

Rae: Honey, do you -- do you think it's possible for you to feel loved again?

Jen: Sure, if it's the right guy.

Rae: And what would be the kind of guy you want? What would he be like?

Jen: Caring, faithful, but not boring. Sexy -- that's important.

Rae: Yes, I agree with that. I do.

Jen: I just want somebody to be honest with me.

Rae: So, what do you think you would do if you found that kind of guy?


Joey: Nice shot. So I ran into River the other day.

Andrew: Yeah?

Joey: He'd probably wipe the floor with us these days.

Andrew: Yeah.

Joey: He'll be playing point for North Carolina soon.

Andrew: Yeah, I don't know. I don't know if basketball is his thing, you know? He's the kind of kid that wants to change the world tomorrow. Not even tomorrow. He'd like to change it today. You know what River is? He's a rebel with too many causes.

Joey: You and Cass are doing a good job with him.

Andrew: Thank you. I mean, he's got problems of his own, but we're very proud of him. How about you? You know, you're so good with the kids here. You want kids of your own someday?

Joey: Yeah, sure. Kelly and I tried to once, but --

Andrew: Wait a second. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Talk to me. What's it like for you, you know? I mean, you and Kelly and Kevin and Kelly and Kevin living together?

Joey: I don't know. I mean, Kelly and I didn't work out. So I guess as long as her and Kevin are happy, I'm happy.

Andrew: So where exactly does that leave you?

Joey: What about me?

Andrew: Well, I don't know. It always seemed to me that, in a way, you kind of allowed Kevin and Kelly to fall in love --

Joey: Ha! I don't think I allowed them to do anything.

Andrew: Fair enough. Even so -- Joey, maybe it's time you allowed yourself to fall in love again.


[Music plays]

Flash: So -- um -- so what are you going to do?

Cole: You're the one who tried to put me to sleep. So now you're going to keep me up. Tell me a story.

Natalie: You got to be kidding.

Cole: Come on, big mouth. Spill your guts.

Natalie: Ok, here's a good one -- how about this psychopath named Cole Avery walks into a diner one day?

Cole: No. Not you. her. I'm waiting.

Flash: You don't have to tell him anything.

Marcie: How about a -- a pot of coffee?

Cole: Now, make it.

Natalie: I'll help.

Cole: No, no, no. You do it. I'm waiting.

Nora: All right. um -- about a week after my divorce from my first husband became final, I found out I was pregnant.

Cole: Was it his?

Nora: Yes. Only I didn't know how to tell him, and I wasn't sure how I felt about it myself.

Cole: So you got rid of it? Some folks would say that makes you a murderer.

Nora: I had a miscarriage. I just kept wondering what it would've been like. I -- I thought it was a boy. I wonder what he would've been like, and I know I would've loved him because mothers do that, you know. They love their children, even when they do big, awful things.

Marcie: Ow.

Natalie: Marcie, are you ok?

Flash: Are you all right?

Marcie: Yeah, I'm ok. I'm ok.

Cole: All right, you. talk.

Marcie: Huh?

Natalie: Why don't you just lay off of her?

Cole: Why don't you just shut up and sit down.

Flash: So lame. This is just so --

Nora: It's ok. Go ahead. Tell us about your mother.

Cole: Yeah. The worst thing that ever happened.

Nora: Stories about your mother -- they can only make you feel better when you're afraid.

Cole: You had your turn.

Marcie: I was an accident.

Cole: Hmm.

Natalie: I'm sure somebody just told that to you, Marcie.

Marcie: No, I heard my aunt and my dad talking about it.

Flash: So what? That doesn't make you a bad person.

Marcie: Well, that's not the bad part. My mom died when I was a baby. They said that having me was too much for her. So thanks to the big mistake, she --

Cole: Sit.

Natalie: Marcie, you didn't make it happen.

Marcie: Um -- not on purpose. You know, it's weird, though. Nobody wanted me, but I'm still here. And my mom, the one everybody loved -- well --

Nora: No, that's not true. Your mother loved you, and she wanted you. Mothers love their children very, very much.


Hank: Nora talked with Bo.

Viki: Yeah?

Hank: She said everyone's ok.

Viki: Oh, thank God for that.

Hank: Yeah. Excuse me.

Viki: Sure.

Bo: Snipers, hold your positions. Nobody fires till you hear from me.

Antonio: All right, there's no way in through the roof, and the alley entrance has got an alarm. He'll know we're there before we close the door.

Bo: Well, it looks like we have to wait him out.

Antonio: Or maybe not. I think there might be another way.


[Music plays]

Cole: Ok, redhead. it's your turn.

Natalie: Skip me, ok?

Nora: No, go ahead, Natalie. Nothing you say is going to leave this room.

Natalie: Roxy used to leave me alone a lot when I was little.

Marcie: How little?

Natalie: Little. She was always at the bars, doing whatever she did, except for when she was hung-over.

Nora: Go on, Natalie.

Natalie: Well -- there's just this one night. I mean, there was this really, really bad storm, and the electricity went out, and it was pitch-black. And there was this tree outside that kept scraping on the house, and it -- it sounded like this monster was trying to scratch its way in, you know?

Cole: Aren't you a little old for monsters, honey?

Natalie: Do you want to hear this or not? Anyway -- it wouldn't have mattered, I mean, Roxy being there. She just would've threatened to feed me the monster if I didn't do the dishes.

Marcie: That's horrible.

Natalie: Yeah, well, I didn't know that mothers were supposed to protect you until I met Viki.

Cole: What about you, Madonna? I bet you got a lot to be ashamed of.

Flash: Funny. I broke up with a guy over an abortion.

Marcie: What did you do?

Natalie: Marcie --

Flash: I got pregnant, and I wanted my music to come first. So I got an abortion and I never talked to the guy about it. He found out afterwards, and he couldn't forgive me. I'm sorry that I did it the way that I did it. I tried calling him over and over again, and he kept hanging up. He said that -- that I was dead to him.

Nora: Funny, isn't it? Here I am talking about a child I wish I'd known, and some of you are talking about mothers you wish you'd known. I guess that's what it comes down to, doesn't it -- mothers and children.

Cole: Shut up. Story time is over.

[Song ends]


Man: Mrs. Laurence.

Dorian: And you would be?

Man: My name's walker.

Dorian: Mr. Walker, I do not appreciate --

Walker: My first name's Walker. My last name's Lawrence. I'm Mitch's brother.

Dorian: Please do come in. I had heard that Mitch had a brother, a younger brother who had died. Are you another brother?

Walker: No, there's just me. He thought I was dead. Our father told him that. We only got in touch a few months ago completely by accident, but we've been speaking by phone almost daily ever since.

Dorian: So you hadn't seen each other?

Walker: I was planning on coming here after I learned he lost his sight, but I had some personal business to attend to, and then suddenly he stopped calling. I haven't heard from him in days. Is he all right?

Dorian: Oh -- Mitch has had a terrible, horrible, horrible accident. and I hate to be the one to tell you this, but he's dead.

Walker: What happened?

Dorian: He was very distraught when he lost his sight, of course, and even though he tried very hard to spare me, I could see that he had lost the will to live.

Walker: Are you saying he committed suicide?

Dorian: They found a tape recording that he had made at the scene of the -- it was, essentially, a suicide note.

Walker: But he had everything to live for. He mentioned a daughter.

Dorian: And newly married.

Walker: And now he's left you a widow in this huge estate.

Dorian: Oh, the money's not important to me. I would give it all away if I could just have my husband back.


Jen: Got a minute?

[Joey sighs]

Jen: As my supervisor?

Joey: Yeah, sure. what's up?

Jen: Just got through talking with Rae.

Joey: How'd that go?

Jen: She kind of turned on a lot of things that I've been trying to turn off.

Joey: Sometimes the only way past things is to go right through them.

Jen: Well, it didn't make me feel better. I was fine when I went in there, and now I just -- just feel really alone.

Joey: Did you talk to Rae about it?

Jen: Yes. It didn't help. I just -- I just want to forget about everything. I already had therapy, ok? That's not what I need. what I mean is, you know, I -- I really could just use a friend.

Joey: Want to shoot?


[Music plays]

Flash: I think the pills are starting to work.

Cole: All right, you. Get some more damn coffee.

[Glass breaks]

Cole: You idiot!

Nora: Marcie --

Marcie: Please --

Nora: Are you all right?

Cole: I ought to just shoot you right here!

Marcie: Oh, no, please don't shoot me! I'm sorry! I'm so sorry! I didn't mean to do it!

Nora: Come here, come here. It's all right.

Flash: The hell it is. This guy has no idea what he's doing here!

Nora: Why don't you --

Cole: Shut up!

Nora: Let her go? Let her go. You have absolutely no use for a hysterical woman. Call commissioner Buchanan. It's not too late to make a deal.

Cole: I'm not giving up.

Nora: You don't have to give up. Make a trade, then. I know. Get -- have your mother sent in in exchange for Marcie.

Cole: You shut up about my mother.

Nora: No, really, Mr. Cole. You know you're going to have to disappear. if you ever want to say goodbye to your mother, this may be your last chance.


Antonio: Now, I can go in a hole near the air-conditioning duct. The vent comes out in the kitchen. If he's in the front, he'll never see me.

Bo: You don't move until you make sure all those women are safe.

[Phone rings]

Bo: Buchanan.

Cole: Where's my money?

Bo: It's on its way. All those people safe inside?

Cole: I'm sending one out. But I want to see my mother.

Bo: All right, hold on. Mrs. Avery, your son would like to see you. Do you feel up to that?

Mrs. Avery: Oh, yes.

Bo: Good. All right, she's coming in, but she's a little shaky. I'm sending someone with her.

Cole: No cops.

Bo: Well, I can't send a civilian in there.

Viki: Bo, let me go.

Bo: No. I'm not going to trade one hostage for another.

Viki: No, I'll just walk her to the door, and then I'll come right back. Come on, he's not going to hurt me if I'm with his mother.

[Bo sighs]

Bo: All right, I'm sending a civilian, a woman. she's only going to walk your mom up to the door, and that's all.

Cole: You -- out.

Marcie: I don't want to leave the rest of you.

Nora: Go.

Cole: Now.

Marcie: Good luck.

Viki: Baby --

Bo: Oh, damn it, Viki.


Viki: Are you ok?

Natalie: What are you doing here?

Viki: Someone had to bring his mother in.

Mrs. Avery: I'm afraid for you, honey.

Cole: You better get home, mom. Go home and forget about me.

Mrs. Avery: I can't, son. I love you and I know you love me, and I'm asking you to please, please stop this before something terrible happens. For me.

Cole: This is goodbye, ma, ok?

Mrs. Avery: No!

Cole: Get her out of here.

Mrs. Avery: No --

Viki: No, I'm staying. Let my daughter Natalie leave in my place.


Cristian: How's my mom?

Troy: Your mother did have a heart attack, but she's stable now. With a little rest, she should make a full recovery.

Cristian: Can I go in and see her?

Troy: Absolutely.

Carlotta: Mijo --

Cristian: Try not to talk.

Carlotta: What about Natalie?

Cristian: Everyone's fine. Just concentrate on getting better, ok?


[Music plays]

Natalie: I am not letting you take my place.

Cole: Vega's girl is worth a lot more to me than you are.

Nora: She'll be fine, Viki, really. We'll be fine.

Mrs. Avery: I'm not leaving you.

Cole: You got to go.

Natalie: Mom --

Viki: I love you, baby.

Natalie: I love you. Just do what he says.

Viki: Yeah.

Mrs. Avery: You're a good man, Cole. You're my boy, no matter what.

Nora: Why don't you let Flash and Natalie go. I'll stay.

Cole: Uh -- no. My odds are better with all of you. So until I get what I want, you're all staying.


Al: Oh, thank God you're here. When you called, I had no idea. You must be so terrified.

Marcie: I'm ok, but, you know, the others are still in there and I want to help, but I can't think of anything. I don't know what to do.

Al: Ok. I got an idea. Sit down.

[Song ends]

Al: You may be scared of what you're facing right now. You may even be wondering if you're going to make it through to tomorrow in one piece.

[Music plays]

Al: You can do it. Just take the hand of the person next to you, hold on tight, and remind each other you're not alone.


[Phone rings]

Cole: What?

Bo: The money's here and the car. All you have to do is release the hostages. You walk away.

Cole: Well, I changed my mind. I'm maintaining a little leverage. Ok, redhead and the lawyer lady, let's go.

Nora: We're not going without flash.

Cole: I said go or die!

Natalie: Come on. Ahem. Come on.

Cole: Come on.

Flash: Ow! Ow!

Cole: That's tough.

Flash: Ow! You're hurting me!

Cole: You're going to be my shield. I'm coming out!

Bo: Hold your positions. Stand by. Disregard this. Everyone stand down.

Cole: Anybody makes a move and the girl buys it!

Antonio: Avery -- run. Three sharpshooters have you in their sights. One way or another, you're going down.

Cole: Maybe. Maybe not.

Antonio: Why don't you put the gun down, Avery.

Cole: You want to do this with fists?

Antonio: Is that what this is about? Huh? Little fight in the yard at Statesville?

Cole: You would've been dead. If it wasn't for those hacks that pulled me off --

Antonio: Ok, fine. Fine. want to do it? let's do it.


Antonio: How about that cup of coffee, huh? You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Bo: Natalie told me that you were a real hero.

Nora: Oh -- what I did wouldn't have mattered if you and Antonio hadn't come when you did.


Al: That was the news room. The hostages have been freed, and they just picked up that guy, Cole Avery. He was arrested.

Marcie: Oh, my --


Bo: That was quite a night.

Nora: There was a time in there, I didn't think we were going to make it, and that whole time, all I could think about was Matthew. He doesn't know you're his dad, and if something went wrong and something happened to me, I just kept thinking, what would happen to him? Who would raise him?


Joey: Hey, friendly game, remember?

Jen: Yeah, I don't really have any friends anymore.

Joey: Well, what am I?

Jen: You're court-appointed, remember? My friends from school pretty much dropped me when I moved here and college has been a total disaster. Now my mom's gone completely nuts, and Will's gone, and then my dad -- he's never coming back.

[Phone rings]


Flash: Come on, rev, pick up. Come on.


Troy: We're going to move you to C.C.U. for monitoring, Mrs. Vega. But the good news is that the damage to your heart was minimal, and you're stable now, so you should be able to go home very soon.

Carlotta: Thank you, doctor, so much, for everything.

Troy: My pleasure.

Antonio: Mami, you had me scared half to death.

Carlotta: Well, if it wasn't for Natalie, I don't think I would've made it. I'm sorry. I was so wrapped up in myself, I didn't let myself see your heart. You are a beautiful, strong young woman. My son is very lucky to have you in his life. Y seria orgullo recibirte en nuestra familia.

Viki: What did she say?

Natalie: I think she said thank you.


Walker: Don't worry, brother. I'll find out what happened and I'll get the truth about Lindsay, Blair, and Dorian.


Dorian: Well, hello, Hank. Come on in.

Hank: Thank you. Dorian, I want to talk to you about your husband's death.

Dorian: Have they found his body?

Hank: No, but forensics recovered your fingerprints at the scene of the crime.

Dorian: Oh, no. Oh, dear. You know, after his death, I felt the need to connect with him, so I went to the scene of the -- I'm so sorry. In my grief, I must've touched things.

Hank: Yeah. I thought you would say something like that.

Dorian: You don't still think that Mitch met with foul play, do you?

Hank: We have his confession, his jacket, his cane, a shoe, and a death certificate. I assume you'll be needing this.

Dorian: Oh. I still can't believe he's dead.

hank: Frankly, Dorian, I'm not quite sure what to believe myself. Thanks for your cooperation. Have a good night.

[Phone rings]

Dorian: Hello?

Mitch: Hello, darling.

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


On the next "One Life to Live" --

Joey's voice: You've reached Joe Buchanan. I'm not available right now, but leave a message and I'll call you back.

Natalie: Did you and Dorian have something to do with Mitch's death?

Dorian: Who is this?

Mitch: It's me, Dorian -- Mitch, your loving husband.
