>> Previously on "One Life to Live" --

Marcie: All my life, Al, nobody has even been attracted to me.

Al: Well, listen, those days are over, Marcie.

Bo: We're talking about when is the best time to let Matthew know that I'm his dad.

Gabrielle: You're not going to wait on that.

Natalie: Jen doesn't love you. She just married you to stick it to Joe.

Jen: It's my wedding night, you know. Don't you want to kiss the bride?

[Captioning made possible by ABC, Inc.]

Natalie: What do you think?

Cristian: I think it's going to look weird no matter what you do with it.

Carlotta: Well, if it stops one traffic accident --

Natalie and Cristian: It's a good thing.

Starr: What time is it now?

Nora: Don't worry, your mom and Jack will be here.

Starr: But they can't be late. I'm the star of the fairy tale festival.

Matthew: I'm in it, too.

Starr: Yeah, but I'm the narrator. If I mess up, the whole show is ruined.

Nora: Ok, I'll tell you what, I will give her a call while I go order us ice cream sodas. Mmm.

Matthew: Is there really magic like there is in fairy tales?

Starr: No, silly. They're just made-up stories about made-up people, and they all start exactly the same way.

Matthew: How?

Starr: Duh! Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess. But she was very unhappy because blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Rex: There he is.

Rex: So where's your spy-cam? That's perfect for "Docs Gone Wild" video.

Jen: It's a documentary.

Rex: Yeah, on cable maybe.

Jen: I'm taking the day off.

Rex: Then what do you say we go back to our hotel and make some fourth of July fireworks?

Jen: I've got plans. We'll hook up later.

Matthew: There is too magic! My dad's watching over me in heaven!

Nora: That's right. You're right, he does.

Starr: Lucky you.

Nora: And you're right, too.

Starr: I am?

Nora: Yes, you are. I don't go in for witches, wicked witches and evil spells, but there is a lot of good magic around, all around us.

Al: Hey! There you are. I've been looking all over for you.

Marcie: Hmm. Hi.

Al: Listen, I need to find out what time you want me to pick you up.

Marcie: Pick me up?

Al: Summer formal? Don't tell me you forgot.

Marcie: Oh.

Roxy: Oh, good. Nat. I've been looking all over for you.

Natalie: Huh?

Roxy: I know you think it's your day off, but there are a zillion college chicks and they want me to do their dos, you know, blowout for the blowout? You know what I'm talking about.

Natalie: No way.

Roxy: Hey, honey, you know, you should see their dresses. They got, like, three threads and two inches of fabric.

Natalie: Roxanne, will you focus?

Roxy: You know, they'd be better off showing up in nothing but their tans.

Cristian: Look, Roxanne, today is Natalie's day off, ok? It's our day. She's not going anywhere.

Roxy: Hey, keep out of it, would you?

Natalie: Listen, I haven't had a day off in weeks and I've got to get ready for this dance tonight, too.

Roxy: Hey, hey, Nat -- hey, hey -- hey, wait a minute.

Marcie: I, um -- I can't make it.

Al: What do you mean, you can't make it? You were really looking forward to this, I thought.

Marcie: I am. You know, I'm not feeling well and I wouldn't be much fun.

Al: Marcie, you let me be the judge of that, ok? Now, listen, I got to stop by the radio station, take care of a couple things. I will be right back. Marcie? You're going, one way or another. If I have to carry you, you're going.

Rae: Hey. You ok?

Marcie: No. I'd be better if I was somebody else.

Rae: Like who?

Marcie: Like thin.

Rae: Oh, honey. Please don't go down that road.

Marcie: Just for one day I'd like to be thin and pretty and rich enough to buy the perfect dress for the ball so that Al will fall madly in love with me for lifetime.

Jen: I've been invited to the campus ball and I'm a shoo-in to be crowned for summer princess, and then the prince is going to fall madly in love with me. Hmm, princes are so predictable.

Marcie: One scoop or two?

Jen: Make it four. I want to keep up my strength. So which one of my 500 gowns should I wear?

Marcie: I don't know, Jen. I don't even have one. I'm not the dress expert.

Jen: Why would you need one? You're not going to the ball.

Marcie: Whipped cream?

Jen: Of course. And a maraschino cherry.

Rae: Do you really think that being thin and pretty is the key to happiness?

Marcie: Well, you know, it's the first thing people notice about you. First impressions.

Rae: That can be changed, and can be wrong, can even be deep.

Marcie: I don't live in a dream world.

Rae: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa. Looks can only go so far. It's what -- it's what's underneath that really counts.

Marcie: Yeah, and there's a great guy for every girl, and fairy tales, they really come true.

Rae: You're feeling sorry for yourself. Stop it. You know that it's inside that matters. You just have to start believing it.

Matthew: Why aren't there any fairy tales about boys?

Starr: Well, there's Aladdin.

Matthew: Who?

Starr: It's this guy, and he finds this, like, really weird-looking lamp, and he rubs it and this, like, genie pops out, and it's a guy and he grants him three wishes.

Matthew: Cool!

Starr: But it would never happen.

[Matthew sneezes]

Rae: Bless you.

Matthew: You're a girl.

Rae: So?

Matthew: Do I still get three wishes?

Rae: One, two, three. And don't even think about wishing for more wishes.

Matthew: Ok.

Rae: We'll fly over to my office. You can tell me all the things you want.

Matthew: Huh?

Nora: If a genie granted you three wishes, what would you wish for?

Starr: I hate those stupid fairy tale people. They always wish for the most stupidest things. They're such dorks. Except for little red riding hood. Wolves didn't even scare her. She did anything she wanted.

Nora: Yes, she did, and she got into a lot of trouble for it, too, you know, as a result, if you remember. 

Joey: How are you?

Jen: Fine.

Joey: You didn't seem too fine when I saw you at the palace the other night.

Jen: Yeah, I was a little drunk. Hey, it was my wedding night. I was celebrating.

Joey: Was -- was it worth it?

Jen: What is your problem?

Joey: Nothing. Just for a newlywed, you seem to be spending a lot of time by yourself.

Jen: Yeah, well, for somebody who doesn't want anything to do with me, you sure are spending a lot of time hassling me about my life.

Natalie: Joe.

Joey: Hey, Natalie.

Natalie: Hey.

Joey: Hi, Cristian.

Cristian: Hey, how are you?

Natalie: Mrs. Vega needs some help with the trays out at the picnic tables.

Joey: Yeah. That's what I'm doing here.

Matthew: Jen! Are you coming to the picnic?

Jen: Uh --

Nora: He's actually looking forward to teaming up with you for the wheelbarrow race.

Jen: Matthew, I would love to, but I'm sorry, I have to bring a picnic to my mom at St. Ann's.

Matthew: Can't you just stay for the games?

Nora: Sweetie, she wants to see her mom, you know? You wouldn't leave me alone on a special day like that, would you? No, I didn't think so. How is your mom?

Jen: Better.

Nora: Good.

Jen: She's practically back to her old self again.

Nora: Hmm.

Matthew: Whoa.

Rae: So?

Matthew: I want to wish something for my mom.

Rae: Jewels are always nice -- diamonds, sapphires, rubies.

Matthew: Something bigger.

Rae: How about a charge card that never sends a bill?

Matthew: I know what I want. I wish me and my mom could live in a palace.

[Alarm rings]

[Alarm stops]

[Phone rings]

Nora: Hello? Hello, I'm sorry, I'm having trouble hearing you. Hello? I need you to speak up, please! Hello? Just a minute. Table 34, could you just keep it down over there? I'm on the phone. Thank you. I'm sorry. Ok, what is this? Who is this? Oh, hi, Bo! Uh -- uh, sure, yeah. I mean, yeah, come on over. We're going to be home all day. Ok. Bye-bye.

Matthew: You messed up.

Rae: Excuse me?

Matthew: You didn't grant my wish.

Rae: Oh, I most certainly did. You said -- and I quote -- "I wish me and mommy could live in a palace."

Matthew: Yeah, I did, but this is a restaurant.

Rae: A palace. He didn't say The Palace?

Matthew: Fix it!

Rae: Oh. Oh, no, no, no can do. You asked for a palace, and that's exactly what you got.

[Matthew sighs]

Nora: Hey, hey, hey. Come on, buddy boy, back, back, back. Oh. Ooh, yeah.

Roxy: Natalie, Natalie, I'll give you highlights, huh, no charge -- low-lights, whatever.

Natalie: Ok, read my lips -- day off.

Roxy: You know, honey, if you can't take the heat, don't stay under the hair dryer.

Cristian: Trust me, you don't need any help with the knockout department.

Natalie: I just can't wait to show off my dress.

Cristian: And I can't wait to show off my fiancee. You are going to be the most beautiful woman in that place tonight.

Jen: Don't! You'll get food on it.

Marcie: You're going to the campus ball?

Carlotta: Of course. Anyone who's anyone will be there. Oh, Natalie, tu te ves maravillosa! Tu vas a hacer la reina de la fiesta!

Natalie: What did you say?

Marcie: She said, "te ves maravillosa. Tu vas a hacer la reina de la fiesta." Oh, whatever!

Jen: Showoff.

Nora: Ok, does this dress make me look fat?

Jen: Ask the expert.

Marcie: You look fine.

Nora: That's a four-letter word.

Marcie: You look thin. Very, very thin.

Nora: Oh, good! Ok. The limo's just waiting for us. It's two blocks long.

Carlotta: Oh, don't forget to scour the steam table, do the salt, inventory the glasswear and go through the walk-in.

Marcie: That's an awful lot of work.

Carlotta: Whistle.

Marcie: What?

Carlotta: Whistle while you work. But don't forget to have it all done by the morning.

Marcie: Oh, but I --

Carlotta: Oh, don't worry, nobody will be here.

Marcie: Well, I'm not nobody.

Rae: Are you sure you really need help from what's underneath that whipped cream?

Marcie: The only thing that'll help me is a magic wand. Ow!

Rae: You have only one life to live. Do you really want to go to the ball?

Marcie: Mm-hmm.

Rae: All right, girlfriend, you are going to the ball.

Carlotta: Your order's almost ready.

Jen: Thanks.

Natalie: So, now that you've married Rex, we're practically sisters-in-law.

Jen: I thought he wasn't your brother.

Natalie: Well, I'll always think of him that way.

Jen: Yeah, well, don't expect me to be all warm and fuzzy and make casseroles for family get-togethers.

Natalie: Hmm, please. I give your marriage two weeks.

Jen: For your information, I am very much in love with your brother.

Natalie: Oh, really? Which one? At least now that you're married, it'll keep you from chasing after Joe.

Jen: I am not the one doing the chasing.

Natalie: You know what -- Joe's a good guy. He reaches out to people.

Jen: What's your point?

Natalie: So when he reaches out to you, you'd better move, and fast, because I don't want my brother getting hurt -- either one of them.

[Jen sighs]

Joey: Where you going?

Jen: I'm going to see my mother.

Joey: That's a long walk. Why don't you let me give you a lift?

Jen: I thought you didn't want anything to do with me.

Joey: I'm worried.

Jen: And that's all? That's all you feel?

Joey: That's all I can allow myself to feel since you ran off and married Rex.

Jen: I was only trying to hurt you.

Joey: Well, you did.

Jen: Why, why can't you just understand how I really feel about you?

Joey: You always choose the wrong road. It's getting dangerous, Jen. Be careful.

Jen: Careful of what?

Joey: Every action has consequences. You go one way, you go another.

Rae: All right, everyone. Work your magic.

[All talking]

Marcie: Ow!

Roxy: Beauty hurts, honey.

Nigel: All right.

Marcie: Oh!

Nigel: Suck it in. Now, that's it. Make like a boa constrictor.

[Marcie grunts]

Nigel: Yes.

Starr: Get out of my way. Let me see these hands. What have you been doing with these hands?

Marcie: Dishes.

Starr: Tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk. We need the big guns.

Marcie: Big guns?

[Roxy whistles]

Starr: Yeah.

Marcie: Aren't you a little young?

Starr: I'm short. You got a problem with short people?

Marcie: Oh, I'm sorry, no.

Nigel: Excuse me. Pardonnez-moi. I need to see the big picture.

Marcie: Hey! Not so big!

Nigel: Do you want fabulous, magnifique, delicioso? Hush! Hush! Shh! Yes. Now, I can see it now. You are going to be absolutely, absolutely, absolutely stunning!

Roxy: Fabu, baby.

Starr: Listen up, that'll be 20 bucks, plus tip -- and don't be chintzy.

Marcie: But I --

Nigel: Oh, no, no, with that coloring, chintz would be ghastly.

Marcie: Chintzy? I want to see. Excuse me.

Starr, Roxy, and Nigel: To beauty!

Rae: What do you think?

Marcie: Oh, my I can't believe it's me.

Nigel: Mustn't forget the piece de resistance!

Marcie: Oh. Nothing like this ever happens to me.

Rae: Magic happens every day. Nobody notices.

Marcie: Oh, well, thank you. Thank you all so much. Now I can go to the campus ball!

[Marcie giggles]

Rae: Not so fast. There is a catch.

Carlotta: Oh, I clipped some articles out of "The Banner" about wedding planning. When you have some time, we can go over them.

Natalie: Sure.

Cristian: My parents never had a big wedding, so this is, like, you know, her chance to do it up.

Natalie: That's ok. I mean, it's just I can't have everyone wanting to help me every time they see me.

Cristian: Sure you don't want to elope?

Natalie: No! No way! This is -- this is my dream, you know? I just can't believe it's actually happening.

Cristian: Well, believe it.

Natalie: I do, thanks to you. I mean, Cris, it's a miracle. All my dreams are coming true.

Roxy: I'm going to give you the down-on-your-luck charity discount.

Marcie: You're charging me for this?

Starr: Plus gratuity.

Roxy: Well, we take plastic.

Marcie: Oh, that'll take forever to pay off. And then what about the clothes?

Nigel: Oh, don't worry, darling, I'm not as mercenary as the females. I wouldn't dream of asking you to pay for the dress.

Marcie: Oh, thank you so much.

Nigel: It's on loan. J. Lo's wearing it to meet Ben's parents next week.

Marcie: J. Lo wears the same size?

Nigel: Parts of her, if you get my meaning. Have everything back by midnight --

Marcie: Midnight?

Nigel: Or bring a cashier's check for $20,000.

Marcie: $20,000? Oh, my God.

Rae: Are you ready?

Marcie: How am I going to get there?

Rae: How do you think?

Marcie: Oh. A pumpkin coach.

Rae: Forget it, toots. If you hurry, you can catch the bus.

Rae: Oh, I must have read the weekend schedule. Oh, well. If you start running now, you can make it before they crown the prince and the princess. Go on, go on. Go on. Good luck!

Rae: Jen. Hi.

Jen: Hi.

Rae: You haven't been coming to therapy.

Jen: I've been kind of busy. I got married.

Rae: Yes, I know, I heard. That was rather sudden, wasn't it? You know, stressful a marriage really is, especially after everything you've just gone through.

Jen: I'm fine, ok? I'm better than fine. I'm happier than I've ever been in my whole life, ok? So why won't everyone just leave me alone?

[Wolf whistle]

Jen: Ok, how lame is this? I took intro to psych. I'm going to pull the blanket back and you're going to be Rex, the big, bad wolf who only wants me for my money, right? I don't need Rae Cummings to help me figure that out. Ok, fine. 

Gabrielle: Oh, hello.

Matthew: Is Bo coming to the fairy tale festival?

Gabrielle: Oh, sweetie. Matthew, I'm so sorry, Bo has to work today. I'm sorry. You see, he's trying to -- well, he's trying to catch up on all of his extra work so that we can go away on vacation together.

Nora: Oh, you're going away?

Gabrielle: Yes, our first vacation, just the two of us, no phones or crime or anything.

Nora: Oh, well, you deserve it. I know how consumed Bo has been with the Laurence case.

Gabrielle: Yeah. Well, certainly has been a long time since I've seen the real one. I've seen that cutout poster more than I've seen him. But all that's about to change, I think.

Max: Listen, I'm starving.

Gabrielle: Oh, sorry, yes. Listen, good luck today, ok? You, too, Starr.

Matthew: Thanks.

Max: Well, hey, you must be feeling good about things.

Gabrielle: Hmm?

Max: Well, I mean, Bo's taking you away for 10 days, all alone. I bet he hasn't given the number out to anyone.

Gabrielle: No. No, I'm really looking forward to it.

Max: You're not worried about Bo going back to Nora still, are you?

Gabrielle: No. No, I'm not worried about Nora.

[Phone rings]

Nora: Excuse me. Nora Buchanan. Oh, come on. Why can't Daniel Colson handle this himself? It's my day off. I just want a little peace and quiet. Is that too much to ask, one day for peace and quiet?

Rae: Are you sure this time?

Matthew: She said it's the only thing she wants. Didn't you hear her?

Rae: You're not my only client, you know. All right. What is your wish?

Matthew: I wish my mom could have peace and quiet.

[Organ plays]

Matthew: Excuse me, I'm looking for --mom? What's wrong with her?

Rae: She's taken a vow of silence. She's going to have all the peace and quiet she has ever wanted.

Matthew: That's not what I wished for! Can't you do anything right?

Rae: You said you wanted --

Matthew: Undo it right now.

Rae: Fine. Maybe next time you should wish for something that you want, not what you think somebody else wants.

Matthew: Huh?

Rae: You only have one wish left.

Starr: And when Cinderella got to the ball she saw a handsome prince.

Max: Good friends, now that the evening is over --

Marcie: It's over?

Gabrielle: The time has come that everyone has been waiting for -- to crown the princess of the ball.

Carlotta and Nora: Ooh!

Max: There's only one young lady worthy and deserving of the prince's love and devotion. The beautiful, the glamorous --

Gabrielle: The slender --

Max and Gabrielle: Jennifer Rappaport.

Carlotta and Nora: Oh!

All: Aw.

Max: And now you may have the final dance of the evening with the prince.

Al: There's something magic in the air tonight. Can you feel it?

Marcie: The voice of the night?

Al: Who is that magnificent creature?

Max: Yes, she is beautiful. Son, time to take your princess.

Jen: Hello? Our dance?

Al: She's the most --

[Clock bells toll]

Al: Perfect woman I have ever laid eyes on. She is definately the one. I have to meet her.

[Clock bells toll]

Marcie: How many pongs was that?

Carlotta: Nine.

Nora: Oh, I think it was 10.

Carlotta: It was nine, Nora.

Nora: You counted wrong.

[Clock bells toll]

Carlotta and Nora: 10.

Marcie: Oh, I have to go!

[Clock bells toll]

Marcie: Oh!

[Clock bells toll]

Starr: You're late.

Marcie: I'm sorry. There was so many pongs and I had to leave and I --

Starr: "Sorry" don't cut it, loser.

Roxy: Hey, you didn't marry the prince. You're going to have to pay up all by yourself.

Marcie: Oh! On, no.

Nigel: Sacrebleu! Now you've lost one of the sandals!

Marcie: Oh, I, you know --

Nigel: Those are blobniks! Have you any idea how much they cost?

Marcie: I'll pay you back!

Starr: With interest.

Marcie: Interest?

Roxy: Looks like you're going to be slinging hash for the rest of your life.

Marcie: Oh, the rest of my life? It's never going to change, is it? I am going to be slinging hash for the rest of my life, while everybody else gets to the ball!

Starr: Oh, boo-hoo.

Marcie: Oh, this isn't it. This isn't it! This can't be it! This is it, isn't it? I'm never going to find love? Happiness? Success? Oh, what kind of fairy godmother are you? Can't you do something?

Rae: I'm afraid not. But you can.

Nora: Ok, kids, time to get ready.

Starr: I'm ready. I'm always ready.

Nora: Ok. How about you, buddy?

Matthew: I'll be there in a second.

Nora: All right. I'm going to go pay.

Matthew: I know what I want for my last wish, and this time I'm absolutely, positively sure.

Rae: Wouldn't you rather have something fun? You know, something like your own fire truck or -- or never having to go to school again?

Matthew: I'm not wasting my last wish on baby stuff. I know what I want. I want Bo Buchanan to be my dad.

Rae: Well, I hate to break it to you, kid, but there are some wishes even a genie can't grant.

Matthew: You're right, fairy tales aren't real. They're just stupid, made-up stories.

[Phone rings]

Starr: Duh.

Nora: This better not be the office. Hello? Yes, what? Hi. Yeah, he's right here. Hey, buddy. For you.

Matthew: Hello? Hi, Bo! You are? Ok, but don't be late. I'm in the very beginning of the show. Bye. Bo's coming to the fairy tale festival after all!

Nora: Right on. Come on.

Troy: Are you ok?

Jen: You scared me.

Troy: I'm sorry. I just -- I just saw you from the window and I was just wondering how you were doing.

Jen: Great.

Troy: Good. I'm glad.

Troy: Happy fourth, Jennifer.

Jen: What are you doing in my mother's bed?

Troy: What do you think I'm doing in your mother's bed, Jennifer? What beautiful eyes you have.

Jen: The better to see what you're up to.

Troy: That's right. And you've gotten a great, big, beautiful eyeful with that video camera of yours, haven't you, Jennifer?

Jen: Just you flirting with a bunch of different women. You're single, right? You're allowed.

Troy: I wanted to be married. But your mother had to stick her big nose in where it doesn't belong!

Jen: Where's my mother? What have you done with her?

Troy: You'll have to ask her.

Jen: I will. I will when I find her.

[Jen gasps]

Troy: What beautiful lips you have, Jennifer.

[Troy chuckles]

Jen: No! Leave me alone! Oh, God, rex. Thank God you're here.

Rex: Whoa.

Jen: Help me.

Rex: Whoa. Hey. I just came by to get your wallet. Where's your purse?

Carlotta: All ready. I hope your mom enjoys it.

Jen: Yeah, I'm sure she will.

Starr: You call that a serving?

Marcie: Isn't there supposed to be a happy ending?

Starr: I'm happy. I love potatoes.

Rae: You have the happy-ending stick.

Marcie: What?

Rae: Go on. Make a wish.

Marcie: Oh, happy-ending stick? Well, how did it get there?

Al: Excuse me. I believe this is yours?

Nigel: Actually, it's mine. Our work here is done.

Starr: I'll send you her bill.

Al: I looked everywhere for you.

Marcie: Well, what about your summer princess?

Al: I don't care about that. You don't need a fancy dress or shoes or anything. I love you just the way you are, Marcie.

Al: I'm not going to that party, Marcie -- not without you.

Marcie: I want to go. I can't wait.

Al: Really? What changed your mind?

Matthew: It's show time, mom.

Nora: Ok. You know your lines?

Starr: Of course I do. Yada, yada, yada, and they lived happily ever after.

Natalie: Did you kill Mitch? Because if you did, I've got no problem with it.
