[Knock on door]

Marcie: Who is it?

[Knock]

Marcie: Who is it?

Gabrielle: Marcie, it's Gabrielle. It's OK. It's just me. It's all right.

Marcie: OK, I知 sorry. I知 just a little jumpy.

[Phone rings]

Marcie: Oh, my God.

Gabrielle: It's OK. Here, I値l get it, OK?

Marcie: OK.

Gabrielle: Shh. Hello? I知 sorry, he's not here. I知 sorry, he won't be. Oh, God. Oh, God.

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

River: Here, listen to the repeat of it. Tell me if this is right.

Starr: OK.

River: OK, it's right?

Starr: Yeah.

River: Good.

Starr: Is that Adriana's number for Puerto Rico?

River: Yeah.

Starr: Well, yeah, that's it.

River: The first useful information I've gotten since she left. All right. It says it's disconnected. Did I get this right?

Starr: Yeah, I watched you dial it.

River: Great. First time I hated doing something right in my life.

Dorian: Hello! I知 back!

River: Where's Adriana?

Dorian: Hello to you, too. Welcome home. I mean, aren't you glad to see me back?

Starr: Welcome home.

Dorian: Why, thank you, Starr.

River: You and Ms. Vega sent her back to Puerto Rico to keep her away from me, right?

Dorian: Would you mind very much if I put my bags down first? Maybe take off my wrap?

River: You totally betrayed me. How could you do that? I just need to talk to her. Please.

Dorian: I知 sorry, River. I can't help you.

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

Viki: You know, since the day that this happened to you, and since the doctors told me that there was no hope, all kinds of people have been telling me that I have to let go, you know, I have to get on with my life and start living again. I thought I was living. You know, I had the children and my work at The Banner, and, of course, now at the university. That's my life. I enjoy it, and it was enough. But, Ben -- oh, God. Darling, I've been invited to go to the hospital gala with -- with a very nice man. His name is Harrison Brooks, he's actually governor, and he really is a nice man. I think you would like him. The thing is that I've been thinking if I were in the bed there and you were sitting here, what would I want for you, you know? I know that you would never stop loving me, and I know that you would never give up hope just as I haven't. I don't care what the doctors say. But, sweetheart, I think if you met somebody nice who -- who just made you laugh a little bit and not feel quite so alone -- I would want you to spend time with her. I would want you to -- to at least enjoy your life.

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

Harrison: Gus?

Gus: Yes, Governor Brooks?

Harrison: Lang just came out of post-op, so--

Gus: Oh, good.

Harrison: Yeah, very good. So I知 just going to spend a few minutes with him. I値l meet you back here.

Gus: Right here?

Harrison: Well, yeah.

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

John: You're the kid, kid -- the name everyone's talking about. By the time we hit Vegas, you're going to be the odds-on favorite.

Natalie: Stop. My head's going to be too big to go through this door. Hey!

Cristian: Hey. Welcome back. It's about time.

John: Be proud of her, Cris. She won again. But I知 sure you're not surprised.

Cristian: Yeah, she called me after the match.

John: She's going to be one of the upstarts in Vegas, an underdog against the vets. Should make her very popular with the oddsmakers.

Cristian: Come on.

Natalie: Are you going to come in?

John: No, you guys -- you should be alone. I値l see you tomorrow.

Natalie: Thanks, John.

John: All right. Hey, you did real good.

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

Todd: Dummy up some file on me and give it to Blair again, it'll be the last thing you ever do.

Kevin: Oh, every damn word in that dossier is true and you know it. Once Blair reads it, you'll never get across her doorstep again.

Renee: Gentlemen, I assume that you'll be settling this matter or you'll be taking it elsewhere. Blair called. She said that she was meeting you here. I think perhaps you want to meet her elsewhere.

Todd: OK. You're not worth it. I値l be a good boy.

Kevin: Renee, I知 sorry. That was --

Renee: Stupid?

Kevin: That's the word I was looking for. Look, I知 meeting Kelly for dinner, so I guess the restaurant would be a better place.

Renee: I think that is an excellent idea.

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

Gabrielle: It's good. You started putting things together. It's good.

Marcie: I知 sorry. I知 sorry, I just -- I --

Gabrielle: You're apologizing again.

Marcie: I知 sorry.

Gabrielle: I am so sorry that I was late.

Marcie: I had a hard time getting here myself. Every -- every night I go to sleep promising myself that it's all going to be OK, but then I wake up and it just feels worse.

Gabrielle: Yeah, I just told Bo the same thing.

Marcie: Why aren't you wearing your ring?

Gabrielle: I had to take it off.

Marcie: Why?

Gabrielle: Because I can't think of my future. My future is -- I can't live in the present, either, because it's too bloody painful, so I -- yeah, I stay where Al is.

Marcie: Yeah, but Commissioner Buchanan -- doesn't it help to have someone?

Gabrielle: But I have nothing to give, you see, so it's ve -- very selfish and unfair of me to put him through that.

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

Dorian: Believe me, River, I know how you feel.

River: I seriously doubt that!

Dorian: You better take me seriously, OK, because I知 telling the truth. She was not sent away because of anything you did. I couldn't possibly be so cruel. Can we just sit down and talk about this? I can't tell you where she is, but I can tell you that she's just fine.

River: Well, if she's just fine, then why can't you tell me where she is?

Dorian: Because it's not my place to tell you. I can't tell you her telephone number. I can't give you her address. Let me say this, though. I think she'd be better off if you left the girl alone.

River: I don't need your damn help. I値l find her on my own.

Dorian: Wow. River is very unhappy.

Starr: Wouldn't you be unhappy if you lost somebody that you loved? It doesn't help anything that everybody's just so happy around here, either.

Dorian: Everybody? Have you fallen in love, Starr?

Starr: Get real. It's Mom. She and Walker -- they're getting married.

Dorian: When?

Starr: Two weeks and counting.

Dorian: Oh, they have a lot of nerve.

Starr: Why? I thought you liked Walker.

Dorian: That's not the point. I知 supposed to be head of this family. I should have been consulted when such an important decision was made.

Starr: Well, I知 sorry, Dorian, but you're not the head of this family anymore. Walker doesn't take orders from anybody, including you.

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

Kevin: Did you at least read it?

Blair: Yes, I did. Then I gave it to Walker, and he burned it.

Kevin: Well, I was out of line investigating Walker. I only did it because I care about you --

Blair: Look, Kevin --

Kevin: More than I have any right to care, I know. I知 a married man who's committed to his marriage. You know, and I was unreasonable with you, asking you to live your life a certain way, and --

Blair: Well, thank you. Thank you for finally admitting that.

Kevin: The only reason is, is because we have something. You know, it's not just an attraction, it's -- it's a connection. You know, we think the same way. We feel the same way about so many things.

Blair: Why are you saying all this to me?

Kevin: Because I don't want to see you get your heart broken again. Because I want you to find a way to be happy.

Blair: I am happy.

Kevin: Well, I知 afraid if you marry Walker Laurence, you won't be.

Blair: Walker -- Walker makes me happy. Very happy.

Kevin: I hope I知 proven wrong.

[Answering machine beeps]

Kevin's voice: Honey, it's me again. I知 sorry. I知 running late, but I値l see you at the Palace for dinner, right?

[Answering machine beeps]

Dorian's voice: Did you know Blair is marrying Walker? And if you answered "yes," why on earth didn't you tell me? Why does nobody in this family share information? I mean, how can I possibly be the head of this family and not be considered in all decisions? I think it's --

[Answering machine beeps]

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

Gabrielle: Marcie? I owe you an apology.

Marcie: I知 sure you don't.

Gabrielle: Yes, I do. I need to apologize to you for all my unsolicited advice about style and clothes and diet and such.

Marcie: Oh. Well --

Gabrielle: I want you to know Al put me in my place.

Marcie: He did?

Gabrielle: Yes, he did. He said, "you, Mother -- you keep your opinions to yourself."

Marcie: Oh.

Gabrielle: But, hey, that's not what I -- that's not the important part. No, the important part is when he said to me, "you see, I think Marcie is the most beautiful woman on the face of this earth, just the way she is."

Marcie: Really?

Gabrielle: He loved you madly.

Marcie: I loved him madly. Thank you for telling me.

Gabrielle: Come here.

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

Viki: Nothing's going to change, darling. I promise you that. I知 going to come and see you every single day, just as I have been. Because you are in my heart every single minute. I love you so much. Bye, darling. I値l see you tomorrow.

Harrison: Viki.

Viki: Oh -- Governor. I知 sorry -- Harrison. Why are you here?

Harrison: Well, I was just visiting an old, old friend, and -- you know Trenton Casper Lang?

Viki: Yes, I do know him. Yeah.

Harrison: You know him, don't you? You all right?

Viki: Yeah, I知 fine, I知 fine. I was just -- I was visiting my husband, Ben.

Harrison: And how is he?

Viki: Oh, he's the same.

Harrison: I知 so very sorry.

Viki: Thank you, thank you. I知 going to go home now.

Harrison: Well, let me give you a ride home. My driver's just downstairs.

Viki: No, that's -- that's not necessary, thanks. I have my car.

Harrison: Are you sure?

Viki: Yeah, sure. Thank you.

Harrison: You know, Viki, I haven't eaten all day and -- would you like to join me for a while? I壇 love for you to join me, Viki.

Viki: Yes, I think that would be really nice.

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

Natalie: I really think I can win this tournament in Vegas. We're going to be in Vegas! How cool is that?

Cristian: Very cool.

Natalie: And just because it won't be on our honeymoon doesn't mean it won't be romantic, right?

Cristian: Yeah. Yeah, sure.

Natalie: You don't sound too convinced.

Cristian: I知 just wondering how romantic it can really be with this guy John McBain hanging around you all the time.

Natalie: You are jealous.

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

[Noise]

River: Hey, sorry, sorry. I didn't know anybody was here. It's just been kind of a rough day for me, and for you, too, obviously, so -- I was going to leave these for Al, but --

Marcie: Oh. That's really considerate.

River: Yeah.

Marcie: Well, what kind of music did you like best? I mean, that he played, I mean.

River: All of it. If the Voice played it, it was right. I mean, whether it was something sad or something that just happened, it was always perfect music.

Marcie: You want to come inside?

River: I have a lot of his shows on tape.

Marcie: Yeah, his -- his mom gave me his music.

River: That's good.

Marcie: Yeah. These were -- these were some of his favorites. You know what, you should have them.

River: Are you sure? I mean, these are all imports. They're all one of a kind.

Marcie: Yeah, that's right.

River: Thank you so much.

Marcie: Yeah. You know what? Take this, too.

River: Oh, my God. No, no, no, no, no.

Marcie: Yes. Yes, please take it. Please?

River: I知 going to go.

Marcie: OK.

River: Thanks.

Marcie: Bye.

Gabrielle: Who was that?

Marcie: A fan of Al痴.

Gabrielle: And he brought some flowers, too.

Marcie: Yeah. He said he didn't know where else to leave them.

Gabrielle: Ooh. Oh, Marcie, look. Oh, how pretty.

Marcie: Oh, my God.

Gabrielle: Are you OK? This been too sad for you?

Marcie: No.

Gabrielle: No?

Marcie: No, no, it's OK.

Gabrielle: OK.

Marcie: I was remembering that I was just telling Al that I got Jen a photo album just like this and how I wanted one for myself that would cover my whole life with the man I loved.

Gabrielle: Well, it looks very much like Al started one for the two of you.

Marcie: Yeah.

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

Kevin: Renee, has Kelly called?

Renee: No, darling. I would've come to the restaurant to get you if she had.

Kevin: She's supposed to meet me here.

[Phone rings]

Kevin: Kelly? You there? Where are you? Pick up if you're there.

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

Todd: What the hell are you doing in Llanview? No, never mind that. When are you leaving?

John: Well, let's see. Oh, yeah -- how about when I知 good and ready. Any more silly questions, Manning?

Todd: Ha-ha-ha. You know, things are going pretty damn good for me here. I really don't need one of Flynn's half-wits hanging around here screwing things up for me.

John: I知 thinking you don't need me to mess things up for you. You can screw things up l by yourself. Why else would you have to buy someone else's face? Our hair is straight.

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

[Music plays]

Starr: Hey.

River: Hey. What you doing?

Starr: Listening. Cool jacket. Where'd you get it?

River: You writing a book?

Todd: Now, you listen to -- no, no, no, no, I知 done now. I知 never going back there. Get out of here.

John: Ahh. Thanks for letting me put that on your tab. How you doing?

Blair: How are you doing?

John: Good.

Blair: OK. Who was that?

Todd: Uh -- I壇 rather be looking at you. That's who that is.

Blair: That's sweet. But you guys looked like you were having a pretty intense conversation.

Todd: OK. He was an associate of mine in Atlantic City. But I told him to get lost, that that life was over for me. I知 more concerned about seeing you, although I知 really having a tough time trying to figure out what your answer is going to be.

Blair: I was having a really hard time figuring all that out, too.

Todd: Does your coming here mean what I hope it means?

Blair: You're right, Walker. We really both should start new.

Todd: Amen to that. And about our future?

Blair: Well, after you order me an extra-large adult beverage, I think I値l be spending my future with you. Now, what are you planning?

Todd: All right, extra-large adult beverage, please! I値l be planning my future with you because without you I don't have a future.

Blair: So I guess we're going to have the preacher boy hitch us up in two weeks?

Todd: Two weeks?

Blair: Yeah.

Todd: That little devil.

Blair: Walker. What?

Todd: Why do we have to wait two weeks? I want you to move in with me tonight.

Blair: Oh, no. I知 going to have to check my calendar.

Dorian: Check it for what?

Blair: Hey! When did you get back?

Dorian: Did you even notice I was gone?

Todd: I pined for you every second, Dorian.

Blair: You are going to be the first to hear the good news.

Dorian: I doubt that.

Blair: I知 moving in -- what do you mean, you doubt that?

Dorian: Oh, I know that I知 not in the loop the way I used to be. Starr told me about your sudden wedding plans. I naturally assumed that you'd want to get a place of your own, and I frankly can't wait to get the house back to myself.

Blair: Well. I didn't know that you would take it so well.

Dorian: As opposed to what?

Blair: Only the hard time that you usually give me, that's what.

Todd: I知 so overwhelmed by your warmth.

Dorian: I wish you both the very best.

Blair: Well, good, because I think it's going to start tonight. I値l spend the night with Walker tonight, then I値l come over tomorrow and pick up the kids. I mean, if that is OK with you, really.

Dorian: You're consenting adults.

Blair: Good. I知 going to go call Hedy. I値l be right back.

Dorian: Hmm.

Todd: You really don't mind?

Dorian: And why should I?

Todd: Well, perhaps it's because when I first came to town, you had your pretty little eye on me yourself.

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

Gabrielle: You see? There you are. There's a picture at Al's graduation. See how beautiful you looked?

Marcie: I was so proud of him.

Gabrielle: Well, I don't think he ever would've seen that day without your help.

Marcie: Well, if you never asked me to tutor him, I never would've met him.

[Marcie laughs]

Gabrielle: What?

Marcie: Oh, Al always knew that I planned everything so far in the future.

Gabrielle: "Al's graduation from remedial obedience school." Right.

Marcie: "Al helps Marcie build bridges as she circumnavigates the globe on a unicycle." He's so silly.

Gabrielle: Oh, there's more. Oh, look at this -- picture of you here. "Marcie at mission control for Al's first solo flight to the moon."

Marcie: "Marcie and Al after the birth of their first child, named after her beautiful mother, Marcie." "18th wedding anniversary: Snowboarding down Everest." The rest of these pages will always be blank.

Gabrielle: Hang on. Maybe not. It says "for Marcie's photo album."

Marcie: Oh. Do you think the one-hour photo place is still open?

Gabrielle: I think it is. Here.

Marcie: I値l be back in 60 minutes.

Gabrielle: OK.

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

Kevin: Hey. What happened? You never showed up at the Palace. Honey? You awake? Well -- hey, don't want to wake up, huh? Sweetie? Hey.

Kelly: Ow! What are you doing?

Kevin: What? I知 -- I must be doing it wrong --

Kelly: Stop it!

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

Blair: Oh! Let me turn the lights on.

Todd: Oh --

Blair: What? I am going to trip and -- and fall! What are you doing? Turn some lights on!

Todd: What's it look like I知 doing?

Blair: I知 going to turn the lights on.

Todd: No.

Blair: What? This is the second time that you have wanted to make love with the lights off. You can't possibly be this shy. What is it?

Todd: Blair, I --

Blair: Walker. What is it that you are afraid that I知 going to see?

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

Renee: Right this way, Governor. Follow me.

Harrison: Oh, that's easy.

Renee: Oh, you make a girl blush. Is there anything that I can get you?

Harrison: Yes -- an invitation to your wedding. You and Asa.

Renee: I知 afraid they've been held up at the printers.

Harrison: Yeah.

Dorian: Why, Governor. Hello.

Harrison: Oh. Mrs. Lord. How nice to see you.

Dorian: I just returned from out of town. I was planning to call your office tomorrow morning.

Harrison: Oh?

Dorian: Yes. A pile of mail greeted me upon my return, and one of them was an invitation to Castles in the Air. It's a benefit for the children's wing of the hospital. I知 one of the sponsors.

Harrison: Congratulations. I知 happy that you've taken such a strong interest.

Dorian: I thought it would be a good idea if I asked you to attend with me.

Harrison: Mrs. Lord, I知 flattered.

Dorian: Excuse me, Governor. I've just asked you out. You can call me Dorian.

Harrison: Well, Dorian -- beautiful smile --

Dorian: Oh --

Harrison: But I have a date.

Dorian: Oh.

Viki: Hello, Dorian.

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

Natalie: You know, if there was a world championship in making love, you would definitely win it.

Cristian: Well, I guess we all have our talent.

Natalie: So, are you going to admit it now?

Cristian: Admit what?

Natalie: That you're jealous?

Cristian: Of who?

Natalie: Cristian.

Cristian: All right, all right, maybe just a little.

Natalie: I knew it.

Cristian: You could always read me.

Natalie: Honey, you got to know there is nothing to worry about.

Cristian: I know, I know.

Natalie: Of course, John is definitely very good-looking and very interesting, fun. OK, OK. Listen, he is. He's -- there's just something weird about him. You know, he's very calculating.

Cristian: Yeah. He's always watching you.

Natalie: That's probably because he searches for talent and he uses it for his job, you know? And besides, I知 sure if I do anything that he doesn't like, he's going to move on. I mean, I知 not real a person to him. I知 just some bet that he placed, you know?

Cristian: So you're saying you can handle him?

Natalie: Cris, I love going to these tournaments. And John McBain -- he's just a price you have to pay for the admission. If you don't want me hanging around him --

Cristian: No. No, don't -- don't you worry about me.

Natalie: But I do. You don't trust him, do you?

Cristian: No. Not really. Oh, great.

Natalie: What?

Cristian: I was supposed to check on some stuff on the Internet for Kevin.

Natalie: Tonight?

Cristian: Yeah. Well, before morning. So I知 going to be on the computer, OK? I知 sorry.

Natalie: Well, I might just have to come upstairs and distract you.

Cristian: Well, hey, I thought we just won our final.

[Phone rings]

John: McBain.

Natalie: Hi, John. It's Natalie. I知 sorry to bug you.

John: No. No worries. What's up?

Natalie: I need to talk to you, and I壇 like to do it in person. Where are you?

John: Uh -- Palace bar.

Natalie: OK. I値l be right there.

John: I値l be here.

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

Todd: Let it go. Come on.

Blair: Oh -- hey -- stop! What is it? Do you have tattoos? Do you have a Britney Spears tattoo? No -- the names of your eight children and wife in Utah?

Todd: No tattoo.

Blair: What is it? Walker, I am going to marry you.

Todd: It's scars.

Blair: Scars? So? No big deal.

Todd: They are to me.

Blair: You talking about the car accident last year?

Todd: Yes, and the burns. I have scars all over my lower back.

Blair: I saw those scars when we were in Hilton Head. I don't care.

Todd: I care.

Blair: Well, I知 glad you're telling me. I am. You are just so good-looking. Is that it?

Todd: Oh, no, no, no, no, it's not that. I've -- I've just had to live with them for so long.

Blair: I知 going to go upstairs, and I知 going to get ready to be with you. And it's really, really going to tick me off if you don't join me. OK?

Todd: OK.

Blair: Look at me. There is absolutely nothing about you that could be ugly to me.

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

Kelly: I went to the Palace, OK? I left.

Kevin: I was late. I知 sorry.

Kelly: No, wrong. You were there.

Kevin: What?

Kelly: Blair.

Kevin: What'd she do?

Kelly: She didn't do anything. You did. You were there with Walker. You were snarling at each other and he was talking about some file that you gave --

Kevin: He was just running off at the mouth.

Kelly: You told me that you were going to drop that investigation.

Kevin: And I did. It's over. I知 moving on.

Kelly: I don't think so. What did you do, anyway? Did you go see Blair and get all hot and bothered and decide to come home and make love to me?

Kevin: This is ridiculous.

Kelly: Is it? Good. Well, I知 actually glad to hear that because I don't feel like being some party doll for all your frustrations.

Kevin: Kelly, this is crazy. Are you -- are you serious? Look, if you don't want to make love to me, then just say so, all right? But don't make up some reasons. Don't pick stupid fights. You know what, don't put more distance between us, OK? I've got enough to deal with right now.

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

Viki: Well, I am very, very glad that you convinced me to join you this evening.

Harrison: I was a little afraid I was strong-arming you a bit.

Viki: Just a little bit, but it was good for me.

Harrison: Go, I知 glad to hear it.

Viki: And I知 looking forward to going to the gala with you next week.

Harrison: Well, this just keeps getting better and better.

Viki: But now I知 afraid --

Harrison: Oh, hold it, now. That sounds like a woman who's ready to go home.

Viki: It's been a very long day. Would you just excuse me for a few moments?

Harrison: Take as long as you like.

Viki: Thank you.

Dorian: Oh, Viki?

Viki: Yes, Dorian?

Dorian: I was just wondering -- how would your dear, comatose husband feel knowing that you were gallivanting around Llanview with the governor of the state?

Viki: Interesting you should bring that up because I just this evening had a conversation with Ben about that.

Dorian: Oh, really?

Viki: Mm-hmm.

Dorian: And what did he say?

Viki: He said, "good for you, Viki." Oh -- he had a message for you, as well.

Dorian: Ah.

Viki: "Get a life."

[Music plays]

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

[Phone rings]

Automated voice: The cellular customer you have dialed is unavailable or out of range. Please leave your message after the tone.

[Voicemail beeps]

Cristian: What kind of corporation has a cell phone for its main number?

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

Natalie: Hey.

John: Couldn't live without me, huh?

Natalie: John, listen, I知 not going to be able to go to the Vegas tournament.

John: Whoa. Back up. I知 not sure I heard you right. What was that?

Natalie: I know, I know I had an agreement with you, but, you know, with everything that's going on with Cristian and how torn up he is over his brother, I can't just drag him off to some tournament

John: Then you go alone.

Natalie: No. Look, I知 sorry if I知 disappointing you, but --

John: Did Cris put you up to this?

Natalie: No!

John: Look, I know he doesn't like me. He doesn't trust me. I get all that.

Natalie: Look, I just don't think that this is a good time for me to be leaving town, OK?

John: No, you're going. I got too much riding on this for you to back out now. Hey -- are you hearing me, Natalie?

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

Todd: No, no, no, there is a problem, Flynn. His name is John McBain. He's been loitering around Llanview, that's what. What do I want? I want you to tell him to keep his mouth shut! Better yet, I want you to get rid of him altogether. Son of a --

Todd: All right, that's it!

Blair: Whoo-hoo.

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

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

>> On the next "One Life to Live" --

Kelly: Is this Walker?

Rex: Listen, I知 glad that you felt you could come to me about this.

Jessica: You're completely innocent!

Antonio: No, I知 not.

Nora: Unless you come forward and plan on telling the truth about what really happened that night, I知 going to use it to put you in prison.
