Asa: Read it and weep.

Bo: I already read today's paper.

Asa: That's an advance copy of tomorrow's paper. "The Banner" endorses the next District Attorney of Llanview.

Nora: Daniel Colson? He's running?

Asa: Yep. And it could be a landslide.

Nora: I thought Viki was supporting Hank.

Asa: Kevin's in charge now, and he and I think Colson's the right man for the job.

Nora: Since when did you become so interested in this race?

Asa: Well, why shouldn't I? I live here. I'm just doing what a citizen would do.

Bo: And that would be buying an election?

Asa: Don't you dare blame me for picking the right horse. You two could go to "The Sun" and ask them if they could say a nice word about old Hank. Now, where is the damn waiter? I need a drink before I go to my grandson's wedding. 

Kevin: Damn it.

Kelly: Here. Let me.

Kevin: Thank you, again.

Kelly: Well, you're welcome again.

Kevin: What would I do without you?

Kelly: Well, you'll never need to know.

Kevin: Did I ever tell you you were perfect?

Kelly: Well, not today.

[Kevin chuckels]

Kevin: And that you look perfect?

Kelly: Back at you.

Kevin: Well, the best man can't be late.

Kelly: Especially to his own brother's wedding.

Kevin: Yeah.

Kelly: I'm so happy for Joey.

Kevin: Yeah, me, too.

Kelly: You know, finding the right person to spend the rest of your life with. That's what it's all about.

Kevin: Yeah. Let's go.

Joey: Have you seen Kevin?

Viki: Joey, he'll be along soon.

Joey: He better be. He's got the rings.

Viki: Hey, it's all going to be fine, really.

Joey: I know, I know. I'm just -- I don't know.

Viki: Sweetheart, you're nervous, that's all, which is perfectly understandable. You're getting married today.

Joey: Yeah.

Viki: And it's going to be a lovely ceremony.

Joey: And thank you for letting me have it here. I know you have your doubts.

Viki: Well, all I ever wanted was for you to be happy, ok?

Joey: Jen makes me happy.

Viki: Good. Excuse me.

Andrew: Hi, Joe.

Joey: Hey.

Andrew: Can you gentlemen take care of our groom while I make a quick call?

Al: I'm pretty sure we can handle that.

Andrew: I'll see you later.

Cristian: Look, in case I don't get a chance later, congratulations.

Joey: Thanks.

Cristian: You know, I've never seen Jen so happy. You're good for her.

Joey: Well, I just wish Natalie and Jessica felt more the same. I mean, it's not like I expect them to be bridesmaids.

Al: Yeah, well, don't worry about that. Marcie's got the whole bridesmaid thing covered. She's back there with Jen right now.

Marcie: Well, maybe I can sneak back into Logan's and return this when we're done with the initiation.

Maddie: You stole it, you got away with it, move on.

Marcie: Yeah, but I've never stolen anything before in my life. You know, I can't believe I got past that security guard, especially -- I'm wearing -- ow! -- My maid of honor's dress.

Maddie: Quiet!

Marcie: We're in the garage.

Maddie: Recite the first five letters of the Greek alphabet -- backward.

Marcie: Backward? Epsilon, delta, gamma, beta, alpha. I'm sorry, I don't mean to complain, really. It's just that I don't know -- what's it been, 36 hours? I haven't had sleep in 36 hours!

Maddie: Fall semester we have something going on every night. No one ever sleeps.

Woman: Especially the pledges.

Maddie: If you can't handle a little sleep deprivation, maybe you're not Sigma Delta Delta material.

Marcie: No, no, no, I can. I can, really. It's just that, see, my best friend, it's her wedding. I promised her that I would get ready. You know, I'm the maid of honor.

Maddie: Quiet. There's only one more phase to the initiation. You can't pledge until you do it.

Marcie: Ok. Ok, what is it?

Maddie: Get down on the floor and oink like the pig you are.

Jen: Marcie's still not here?

Lindsay: Right -- I think maybe she got snagged up in some traffic.

Jen: But she's my maid of honor.

Lindsay: Look, I know, but, honey, there's still time. Don't worry. Is that a wedding present?

Jen: Yeah, from Will.

[Lindsay gasps]

Lindsay: Oh. He always had such beautiful taste.

Jen: Too bad he couldn't make it for the wedding.

Lindsay: You mind if I read the card, hon?

Jen: No.

Lindsay: "Jen, sorry I can't be there to celebrate your special day. I'll be wishing you and Joe love and happiness for the rest of your lives together. Love, Will."

[Doorbell rings]

Jen: Finally. That must be Marcie.

River: Hey. Where were you? I thought you were going to get off work a half-hour ago.

Adriana: Carlotta was late. She was late to her book club meeting. I couldn't leave until she left.

River: I don't really mind. Not to dis your godmother or anything, but is she going to give you a life anytime soon?

Adriana: I'm sorry I was late.

River: I'd have waited all night if I had to.

Nora: He just can't be serious. Daniel Colson running for District Attorney against Hank.

Bo: You ever seen Colson not serious?

Nora: My god, he's going to run for District Attorney against Hank.

Bo: You know, he could win, too. He could win if pa has his way.

Nora: No, no, no, see, he's not going to get his way this time. We have to do everything we can to make sure that this doesn't happen, because there is no way in hell I am going to work for Daniel Colson.

Riley: Dinner was good. Thanks again.

Daniel: Well, it's the least I could do after the way I treated your girlfriend.

Riley: You've already said you're sorry about 10 times. We're cool.

Daniel: Yeah, I just hope I get a chance to apologize to her, too.

Riley: You know, if you talk to Flash for about five minutes, you might actually like her.

Kevin's voice: I would like you to meet Asa Buchanan.

Daniel's voice: Yes, sir, it's good to see you again, sir.

Kevin's voice: And my niece, Sarah Roberts.

Flash's voice: And you can call me flash.

Daniel's voice: Hi. Nice to see you. 

Daniel: Of course I will. You know, as a matter of fact, why don't we have dinner next week, just the three of us?

Riley: I'll run it by her.

Daniel: Great. Just let me know when you're free, all right? You know, son, I've got a business meeting in --

Riley: You -- go.

Daniel: All right. See you later, ok?

Riley: Hey, dad? Thanks, again.

Daniel: You bet.

River: The sun's almost down. What do you want to do tonight?

Adriana: Well, we don't have very much time, because my madrina, she's going to be home early tonight. But there is something --

River: Really? What's that?

Adriana: I'll show you.

River: Now? Ok. Lead the way.

Cristian: Wow. Incredible.

Viki: How beautiful are you two. gorgeous, just gorgeous.

Jessica: Excuse me.

Viki: Sure, honey. Hey, thank you for being here.

Natalie: Only for you, mom.

Viki: Your brother really appreciates it. I know that.

Natalie: Yeah, well, I just can't stand seeing him marry that manipulative little --

Cristian: Natalie, now is probably not the right time.

Viki: Sweetheart, I understand your feelings about Jen.

Natalie: Yeah, well, they're not going to change.

Viki: I know. All I ask is you just put them aside for this evening, ok? Thank you.

Natalie: Does that mean we have to invite her to our wedding?

Cristian: Yep, that's right. You know, I can't wait to see you as the bride.

Natalie: You know, we have so much to do. We have a whole church full of people coming.

Cristian: And we're going to get it done. It's going to be exactly like you always wanted.

Joey: But I'm not supposed to see the bride before the wedding.

Jessica: Joey --

Joey: Please, Jess, can you and Natalie just go check on her?

Jessica: But she has Marcie and her mother. You know, Joey, we'll probably just be in the way.

Joey: I know you don't like Jen. I just want our wedding day to be perfect.

Jen: Rex, I swear to god, if you try to ruin my wedding --

Rex: Haul off the red alert! I just came by to say best wishes. Lindsay, you look beautiful.

Lindsay: Thanks.

Jen: Ok, you said it. Now you can go.

Rex: One more thing. My keys to your father's house.

Jen: How many copies of this did you keep?

Rex: It's the only one, really. I wouldn't do that to you and your Joe, not after what happened in the Dominican Republic. Jen and I finally got a chance to talk about things down there.

Jen: Yeah, ok, and now we're through.

Rex: You really exposed your true self, bared your inner feelings. It seems like all the bad stuff between us was just stripped away. I knew then I couldn't take your dad's house away from you.

Lindsay: I'm sure Jen's very grateful for that, Rex.

Rex: Yeah, who knew doing the right thing could feel so good?

Jen: Time to go.

Rex: Right, Jen? All right, well, you know, we'll always have the Dominican Republic, the good times.

Lindsay: I know he wasn't the one for you, Jen, but he does seem like a nice guy.

Jen: Yeah, seems like. Oh. It's so late. I wish Marcie would get here.

Maddie: Hey, piggy, are you deaf? I said get down and oink.

Marcie: Is that really necessary?

Maddie: Do you want to be a Sigma Delta Delta?

Marcie: Yes, but I just don't understand why I have to do something like that.

Maddie: Because it's part of initiation. Everybody does it.

Maddie: Come on, almost done.

Maddie: All fours.

Maddie: Now oink.

Woman: Oink, pig.

Second woman: Oink.

Marcie: Oink.

Maddie: Louder.

Marcie: Oink. Is that it? Can I get up now?

Maddie: Hold it.

Maddie: Close your eyes.

Marcie: What is this?

Maddie: What'd you think it would be? A peace rally?

Marcie: I don't understand. I don't understand what you want. What is this about?

Maddie: Payback for my boyfriend Deke Carter. You got him thrown in jail, remember?

Marcie: Deke?

Maddie: Slipped your mind?

Marcie: Deke deserved to be arrested.

Maddie: How pathetic are you? You really believe that we wanted you to join Sigma Delta Delta.

[Women laugh]

Maddie: You see any other fat losers here?

Marcie: What I see is a herd of scurrying sheep, scurrying after whatever is cool this week. At least pigs are smart.

Maddie: Where you going? The party's just getting started.

River: Oh, wow. You can see the whole city from up here.

Adriana: When my friend Cristian showed me this place, I knew you would like it.

River: Thank you. That's really beautiful.

Adriana: Romantic, right?

River: It's romantic, yes. I'm sorry. These things are killing my back.

Adriana: Are you hurt?

River: No. It's just really heavy with books and stuff.

Adriana: What are you reading?

River: Oh, you name it -- biology, history, Shakespeare.

Adriana: So you're going to school up here? I thought --

River: Yeah, most people don't. It's just -- the reading's something my dad's making me do.

Adriana: Oh, but you don't want to?

River: No, my reading's pretty lousy. I can do it right, but then when I look at the page, the words -- they get muddled.

Adriana: I can see how that would be hard for you.

River: Yeah. I never told anybody that before.

Adriana: Really?

River: Yeah. You probably think I'm stupid now, huh?

Adriana: Why would I think that?

River: Because it's true.

Nora: The election's in two months. We got to go to all the precincts where Hank's popular and get the voters out.

Renee: That's a lot of votes.

Bo: Hank just accepted a teaching position at the L.U. law school.

Renee: He's decided not to run?

Bo: He's been talking about it for months. He says he's burned out. You know, 10 years on his job, it's a long time.

Renee: Well, then, for him, that's a good decision, Nora.

Nora: No, that's easy for you to say. You're not going to be the one working for Colson.

Bo: Well, I got to go to my nephew's wedding.

Renee: Yeah.

Bo: I'll see you there, Renee?

Renee: Yeah, if Asa ever shows up.

Nora: Give them both my best, will you?

Bo: Yeah, I will.

Nora: Well, I'm going to have to resign.

Renee: Why?

Nora: Because Daniel Colson is a bulldozer. He'll be absolute poison to the staff. Witnesses won't talk to him. Gee, that'll be a great office.

Renee: Well, then, someone should run against him.

Nora: Yeah, someone should. But who?

Flash: Hey.

Riley: Hey.

Flash: Hey. Wow. Hello to you, too. Hi. Don't be so sad or anything. What's up?

Riley: More like in shock.

Flash: Why?

Riley: My dad came back by the garage last night again.

Flash: Really? What happened?

Riley: He just started apologizing for trashing you and me and everything. I think he was for real.

Flash: You do?

Riley: Yeah, I mean, he took me to dinner tonight, and all he kept doing was apologizing and saying, "I want to make it up to you" and -- I don't know. I think he's coming around.

Flash: What time did you see your dad?

Riley: About 10:00. Why?

Flash: Because I ran into him last night at the Palace.

Riley: He didn't mention it.

Flash: I'm not surprised.

Riley: Did he give you a hard time?

Flash: No, no. He was actually very surprised to see me, especially after my uncle introduced me as Sarah Roberts, Asa's great-granddaughter. I'm sorry.

Riley: I'm glad you told me.

Flash: I wish it were different. I wish I wasn't --

Riley: No, Asa Buchanan-- dad would do anything to suck up to that kind of -- so he was lying.

Flash: Maybe I misunderstood.

Riley: No, my father has some sort of angle for everything, and if there's nothing in it for him, he could care less about anybody.

Jen: I wish dad was here to give me away.

Lindsay: You don't know how bad I wish I could make that happen. I'm sorry.

Jen: No, that's not what I meant. I just meant that I miss him.

Lindsay: I know. I miss him, too.

Jen: But I know that he's watching over us. And you're going to watch me get married to Joe, and I'm really so happy about that. I've wanted this for so long.

Lindsay: Does he know how lucky he is to be marrying my little girl?

Jen: Mom --

Lindsay: Well --

Jen: Listen, I got to go get changed. Will you wait for Marcie?

Lindsay: Of course I will.

Jen: She was supposed to bring something borrowed, if she ever shows up.

Lindsay: Ok, let's cover that. Something borrowed. Something blue.

Jen: Mom, it's gorgeous. Thank you. And then Will's earrings -- there's something new, right?

Lindsay: Right, and now we just need something old.

Jen: Yeah, I wanted to wear grandma Davidson's pearls. Dad showed them to me once. We talked about me wearing them when I got married, but will and I went through his stuff and we never found them. You know, I got to go get ready.

Lindsay: Ok. I'll -- I'll call you -- I'll just send Marcie up when she gets here, ok?

[Phone rings]

Lindsay: Hello.

Joey: Lindsay, it's Joe. Just checking in. Is everything ok?

Lindsay: No, everything's fine. We're just a little concerned because Marcie's not here yet.

Joey: But I thought she was already there with Jen.

Lindsay: No, not yet.

Joey: All right, thanks. I'll check it out, see what I can find out.

Viki: What's wrong?

Joey: It's Marcie -- she never showed up.

Viki: Ooh, ok. Ladies, the maid of honor seems to be running a little late, and I know that Jen certainly needs somebody with her. So I think it would be a very good idea if the two of you went down there to help her out. I definitely know that your brother can count on you in a time like this.

Jessica: All right, mom. Come on.

Al: Hey. Joe.

Joey: Yeah.

Al:  You were talking about Marcie before?

Joey: Yeah, yeah. She never showed up at the carriage house. Do you know where she is?

Marcie: What do you want from me?

Maddie: A song. Like the rest of the freaks that hang out here.

Woman: A song about how you live with yourself.

Second woman: A song about how you hate war.

Maddie: How about a song written by one of your peace freak buddies?

Marcie: If you just let me go to my friend's wedding, please.

Maddie: No song, no wedding.

Woman: Sing.

Second woman: Sing.

Maddie: Sing.

All: Sing sing! Sing! Sing! Sing! Sing!

Marcie: O beautiful for spacious skies for amber waves of grain for purple mountains majesties above the fruited plains! America! America! God shed his grace on thee and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!

[Music plays]

Kelly: Let me help you out with that.

Joey: No, it's ok. I can manage.

Kelly: Please?

Joey: Ok. Thank you.

Kelly: You're welcome.

Al: Marcie, it's al. Where are you? Jen said you never showed up. I'm worried. Call me.

Maddie: The fun's just getting started.

Marcie: Oh, will you stop it?

Woman: Oh, yeah, let's see you dance now, huh?

Maddie: You're kind of clumsy, aren't you?

Marcie: Will you get away from me! Stop it! You kids just get away!

Maddie: Who's running, pig?

[Women laugh]

Marcie: Ow!

Flash: Hello, Marcie. Marcie, are you ok? Here, here, let me help you. Come on.

Marcie: No, no, no, I --

Flash: Oh, my god. Come on.

Marcie: Ah! Oh, you know what? I don't have time to explain what happened. Do you think you could just help me home?

Flash: Yeah, sure. Come on. No problem.

Marcie: Thank you.

Flash: Be careful.

River: Man!

Adriana: May I see your books?

River: They're just boring school stuff. You don't want to look at that.

River: Please? Let me see them.

River: If that's what you want to do -- go ahead.

Adriana: Wait. There's so many.

River: Yeah.

Adriana: Would you read one to me?

River: My reading sucks.

Adriana: No.

River: Take my word for it.

Adriana: Please? Your reading can't be as bad as my English. That must be true. Please?

River: Ok, just to prove you wrong.

Adriana: Ok.

River: Which one?

Adriana: Hmm -- this one.

Nora: Run for D.A.? No, Renee. I can't do that.

Renee: Uh-huh.

Nora: I can't. I'm serious. I'm not. No. Uh-uh.

Renee: All right, then, Nora. But consider the alternative.

Nora: Oh, no. Working for Colson is not an option, no.

Renee: Wouldn't it be fun if the tables were turned?

Nora: Sure.

Renee: You are a well-known defense attorney, and you're a hell of a lot more appealing as a candidate than Mr. Colson. Think about it.

Riley: You are such a liar.

Daniel: Riley, what the hell do you think you're doing?

Riley: So did you tell Asa Buchanan you that you called his great-granddaughter a piece of trash? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Daniel: I was wrong. Riley, I should never have said those things.

Riley: Oh, why is that? Because Flash is related to a billionaire?

Daniel: Son --

Riley: Then how come you forgot to mention that you saw her last night?

Daniel: Son, I know that's how it looks, but that's not really --

Riley: It's how it is. Your son is with Sarah Buchanan, and all of a sudden you can't do enough for him.

Daniel: Riley, keep your voice down!

Riley: No, you're going to hear this! I am not with Sarah Buchanan! I am with Flash! All right, can you stay the hell away from her!

Marcie: I really don't want to talk about it, ok?

Flash: I -- no, it's all right. I -- I completely understand. Do you want me to call Al?

Marcie: No. No. I'm late for a wedding.

Flash: Marcie, you really need to lie down. This looks serious, and you look really upset.

Marcie: No, no, I'm the maid of honor.

Flash: Oh, yeah. Jen and Joe's wedding?

Marcie: Yeah. I'm sorry.

Flash: It's all right. No, it's cool. I was invited, but I'm not going to go. I don't think that you should go, either. Jen has to understand that. You're really bad.

Marcie: No, no, no, no, listen, I can do this. I really can. You know, Jen's counting on me. You know, I can't let her down and I have to find something to wear and I have to put on makeup. Flash, do you think you could help me?

Flash: Jen, probably doesn't have any idea what a great friend you are.

Marcie: Please? Please?

Flash: All right, all right. Let me go see what you got. Let me go.

Marcie: Thanks, Flash.

Gabrielle: Oh, don't you look handsome.

Renee: And very distinguished, I'd say.

Joey: Thank you very much. Good to see you, Asa.

Asa: Good to see you, boy.

Al: Commissioner --

Bo: Yeah.

Al: Can I talk to you for a second?

Gabrielle: Is there something wrong, Al?

Bo: Sure.

Al: No, no, mom, everything is fine, ok? Just go in. I'll be right in.

Gabrielle: You sure?

Al: Yes. Marcie's missing.

Bo: Since when?

Al: I'm not sure. She's supposed to be Jen's maid of honor. She's supposed to be down at the carriage house right now helping get her ready, but she never showed up. I can't reach her on my cell phone. I was going to go and look for her, but -- I didn't want to worry her, but Carter, that Deke Carter kid --

Bo: Yeah.

Al: He made another threat.

Bo: What did he say?

Al: The police station, before I left, he said that Marcie was going to get hers.

Asa: Joey.

Joey: Hey.

Asa: Can I steal your best man for a minute?

Joey: Be my guest.

Joey: Please don't worry, mom. It's right, me and Jen. I know it is.

Viki: Sweetheart, you have such a good heart. I guess I just have to trust that it's leading you in the right direction, just as I have to trust Jen to cherish and to nourish the goodness that is in you.

Joey: She will, mom. You'll see.

Lindsay: Is she ready?

Jessica: Yeah. She's coming right now.

Lindsay: You are the most beautiful bride I have ever seen.

Jen: No, you're just biased, mom. Thank you.

Lindsay: Oh, I wish your father could see you.

Jen: I think he can.

Lindsay: Oh, my god, are those --

Jen: Grandmother Davidson's.

Lindsay: You found them!

Jen: In my jewelry box. I guess dad left them there before he died. It's the weirdest thing, because I look in that box every day and I've never seen them until now.

Jessica: They're perfect.

Jen: Thank you both for helping.

Jessica: You're welcome.

Natalie: Yeah, I wonder what happened to Marcie.

Jen: I know. I wish she would get here.

Lindsay: You know, I'm afraid we're out of time. Are you ready?

Jen: Let's do this.

Nora: Hmm. I don't know, Danny boy. Is it worth the fight?

Flash: The strangest thing just happened. I was in Angel Square, and I ran into Marcie Walsh. She was on the ground. Her knee was hurt. It was like deja vu, like when you and Sheyne found her.

Riley: Did she say what happened?

Flash: No. She totally shut down. Anyway, did you find your dad?

Riley: Yeah. Let's go in first.

Flash: Right.

Riley: What the hell?

Al: I'm going to go and check Marcie's dorm room first.

Bo: keep in touch with me. I'm going to send some cops over to the campus.

Al: Ok. Oh, Marcie! Thank god!

Marcie: Honey, I'm sorry. I'm -- I'm sorry. Well, has the wedding started yet?

Al: No. Are you ok?

Marcie: Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. I -- I got held up. You know, I'll tell you about it later.

Bo: Marcie, I'm glad to see you.

Marcie: You, too, commissioner.

Al: Marcie?

Marcie: Yeah?

Al: Something's wrong.

Marcie: No. No. I just -- I hate being late. Where's Jen?

Natalie: Marcie, Jen's going to be so glad to see you.

Jessica: Oh, it's time to get started.

Marcie: Ok, well, why don't you go in and I'll see you guys after.

Al: Ok.

Marcie: Ok.

Al: And then you'll tell me what's going on.

Marcie: Yeah.

Jen: Marcie!

Marcie: Jen! Hi. I'm sorry I'm so late.

Jen: What happened? I thought you were going to wear the dress and the necklace that I gave you.

Marcie: Yeah, I know. I was, I was. There was a family problem.

Jen: Oh, as long as you're here.

Marcie: Yes, I'm so glad I'm here, you know? How about you? How you are doing?

Jen: About like you'd expect.

Marcie: My, god. God, you look beautiful. You're like a fairy princess. Oh, god, Joe's not going to believe it when he sees you.

Jen: Thanks.

River: "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach, when feeling out of sight for the ends of being and ideal grace. I love thee to the level of every day's most quiet need, by sun and candlelight. I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I love thee with a passion put to use in my old griefs and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose with my lost saints."

["Wedding march" plays]

River: "I love thee with the breath and smiles and tears of all my life."

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

On the next "One Life To Live" --

Antonio: Keri just got a court order banning me from seeing my daughter.

R.J.: Well, where's that cute little wife of yours? Oh, I'm sorry. Ex-wife.

Jen: I love you.

Joey: I love you.

Dorian: I was kidnapped! And he is the one to blame.
