Roxy: You know, I'm here, I'm drinking, and I'm thinking this is a perfect place for Cristian's memorial. Big, juicy burgers, curly fries, and Crisí face on a cocktail napkin. What do you think?

Carlotta: The memorial will be held at St. Judeís. I've already spoken to Father Gregory about the service.

Roxy: Oh, man, that's such a downer. You know, Cris would want a party. Right, Nat? Don't you think so?

Carlotta: Natalie, please.

Natalie: You know what we'll do? We'll wait. We'll wait and we will let Cristian decide what we're going to do.

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

Jen: I don't want to get wasted tonight.

Rex: It's just O.J., Straight up.

Jen: What's with you lately? You're acting kind of different -- sweet, actually. You gave me that picture of me and my dad, and you drove me home and you didn't even try to get me into bed.

Rex: I told you it wasn't about sex.

Jen: It's always about sex with you. Or else what else is there in it for you?

Rex: You don't think people can change?

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

Daniel: The jury will see exactly what you wanted them to see -- Todd Manning, rapist. You presented one hell of a strong case.

Nora: Well, if that's the case, then what's taking them so long? They've been deliberating for over a day, now.

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

R.J.: Ok, don't tell me. Let me guess -- you are thinking about that trial, which is no longer any of your business because Manning fired you. And if you ask me, he did you a favor.

Evangeline: I've just never been dismissed like that by a client.

R.J.: Well, no, but then you've never represented an insane serial rapist before. Look, he's an idiot. Forget about Manning.

Evangeline: I canít.

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

[Knock on door]

Viki: Yeah?

Jessica: Mom, do you got a minute?

Viki: Jessie. Hi, babe. Yes, of course. Come in.

Jessica: Hi. Thanks. You're here late.

Viki: Yeah, well, I'm just trying to keep busy.

Jessica: And to keep from thinking about Todd.

Viki: Yeah.

Jessica: Yeah.

Viki: Oh, Jessie, if Todd is convicted -- well, what did you want to talk to me about?

Jessica: Um -- mom, you like Dr. Haver, right?

Viki: I really don't know him very well, but I know that you think very highly of him, and certainly he's extremely well respected.

Jessica: John McBain thinks that he's the music box murderer.

Viki: What?

Jessica: Yeah. And it's not true, Mom. It's just not true.

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

John: So what do you think -- music box killer, love child killer, white rose killer -- all the same guy.

Bo: John, all we've really got right now is a theory that links Haver to all these murders.

John: He's our guy. He's just hiding because he knows we're closing in.

Bo: We need to find him. And we've got to find Rae Cummings.

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

Stephen: Congratulations, Rae. You made it through another day among the living. Ups-a-daisy.

Rae: I can't do this much longer, Stephen.

Stephen: Oh, nonsense, Rae. Nonsense. You're going marvelously. Your profile of the serial killer was -- was -- was amusing -- if not exactly original.

Rae: My profile of you was accurate, and you know it. You're not going to kill me. In fact, you're right now trying to figure out how to avoid it.

Stephen: You're a laudable colleague, Rae. Laudable. And for that reason, I'd like you to help me with another profile.

Rae: Whose?

Stephen: A certain federal agent -- Agent John McBain. I want you to tell me about his strengths and his weaknesses so I'll better know how to exploit them.

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

Evangeline: You see, the thing is --

R.J.: What?

Evangeline: Never mind. You don't want to hear about Todd Manning, so I --

R.J.: No, I don't, but your work is important to you. And if you need to talk about it, I want to be the one you talk to. So, talk.

Evangeline: I could have won that case, R.J. Despite all of Toddís restrictions, I know that I could have won that case, and I can't believe I'm saying this, but it's not even about winning. I mean, Todd is crazy, but he is innocent. I honestly believe that and it doesn't matter. You know, he made his bed, so -- and like you've been saying for, what, three or four times now, let's -- let's forget about Todd Manning. Let's forget about Todd Manning, ok? Can you please help me to do that?

R.J.: Oh, yes. Yeah, I'm sure I can do that. Why don't we just talk about these open-ended tickets that we have to the Bahamas.

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

Daniel: Ok, look, we both know this long deliberation means the jury's conflicted. Maybe on the sentencing they'll recommend to Judge Lowell.

Nora: Oh, Daniel, I really -- I'm very happy with your vote of confidence. I really appreciate it. But we both know that there's at least one person on this jury who's not convinced of Toddís guilt.

Daniel: Nora, you did an amazing job be proud. I am. And I'm glad to have you in the D.A.'S office. There's my date. Listen, call me if you hear anything, ok? Hey.

Lindsay: Hey. I'm glad you could make it.

Daniel: No, I said I would. Thanks for coming.

Lindsay: I'm glad you're here.

Daniel: Me, too.

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

Rex: You going to answer my question?

Jen: I don't know. I don't know if people can change, Rex. I canít. I keep making the same stupid mistakes over and over again. You even called me on it.

Rex: What?

Jen: When I married Joe, you told me I wasn't going to be happy.

Rex: Ok, yeah, forget all that. He wasn't the right guy for you.

Jen: I canít. Won't you just listen to me? My life is a mess right now. I keep trying to just look for anything that's going to make me happy, try and get excited about something or someone. Now, Marcie just walked out on me, I'm flunking out of L.U. --

Rex: Ok, then let me help!

Jen: How? By feeding me O.J.? Tomorrow you're going to lace it with vodka, or I will.

Rex: Come on, Jen.

Jen: And then I'll wind up in the sack with you, and I'll be right where I always am.

Rex: Then just say the word. I will do whatever you need me to do.

Jen: I got to go.

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

[Knock on door]

Bo: Come in.

Morgan: Bagged and tagged, from the search of Haverís house and grounds.

Bo: Hey, thanks a lot, Morgan.

Morgan: Sure.

[Videotape plays]

John: He's not man enough to have any kind of meaningful human relationship. He's a coward. It makes him angry to feel so frightened all the time, so he makes himself feel strong by viciously attacking innocent women, at least five that we know of so far.

[John stops videotape]

John: The insults -- that's what did it.

Bo: Says here, according to Madison Kensington, victim number six, his classmate -- she mouthed off to Haver in class. Last semester she made some crack about his sexuality.

John: And he paid her back, just like he paid me back for the news conference.

Bo: We need harder evidence to nail Haver or anyone else for that matter.

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

Rae: John McBain is a loner. He admired his father very much, who was also a cop, a street cop. His father never received the promotions that John did. John harbors deep resentment towards his father.

Stephen: Vague. Generic. You can do better.

Rae: Why would I give you ammunition against him?

Stephen: Because you want to live longer.

Rae: I'm not going to. You're going to kill -- it doesn't matter.

Stephen: Is it better to die sooner -- or later?

Rae: Fine. Fine. Ok. You want to know about John McBain? He's strong, driven, brilliant, but he's tortured. He has a dark side, not unlike the psychopaths that he hunts down, not unlike you, Stephen. He's not afraid to go into your mind, to get in there and see the sadistic sickness that's there. And that's why it's just a matter of time before he catches you.

Stephen: "A matter of time." Such a simple phrase. Conveys so much. The time it takes John McBain to figure out who I am, prove it, hopefully, and to catch me, as you so eloquently put it, well, relatively, that could be all the time in the world for me.

Stephen: As for you.

Rae: No. Stephen -- Stephen, listen to me. You said that -- that you would keep me alive if I could name your next victim. Well, I can. I know who your next victim is.

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

Viki: Well, yes. I mean, everything that you say could be explained by the fact that Dr. Haver's been consulting on the murders, but Honey, if he is the killer --

Jessica: Mom, he's not. He's not.

Viki: If John McBain feels that he is a suspect, he must have a reason, right?

Jessica: And the reason is he's obsessed. He's crazy, Mom. Talk to Bo. Bo is unconvinced that he's the killer.

Viki: When did you find all this out? From Antonio?

Jessica: No. I -- well, I was writing this article for "The Banner" and I stumbled across a couple of things, and -- well, John came to Llanfair and specifically told me to stay away from Haver and --

Viki: Well --

Jessica: But he's on a witch-hunt, Mom. He's trying to point the finger at anybody.

Viki: Be that as it may, Jessica, I do not want you caught in the crossfire. You have to stay away from Stephen Haver.

Jessica: But I told you, he has nothing to do with the music box murders.

Viki: Darling -- ok, all right, that's how you feel. But if the police are suspicious of him, it may be because he's involved with somebody who's connected to -- we don't know the facts, ok, and until it's all straightened out, you absolutely have to stay away from him. Jessie, do it for me, please?

Jessica: Ok. Ok.

[Knock on door]

Viki: Um -- I have an appointment. Let me just reschedule.

Jessica: No, Mom, it's fine. I have to go anyway. I promise I won't do anything stupid. Thank you. Hey, Riley.

Riley: Hey, Jess. Your Mom's secretary told me to knock. I got a message --

Viki: Riley. Come on in, please. And close the door. Thank you.

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

Daniel: Lindsay, riley says he's not using, but I know the signs.

Lindsay: Is that what you two were arguing about when I saw you at Rodi's?

Daniel: Yeah. I'm a D.A., for god sakes. I mean, how embarrassing it is to have a kid who's arrested for trying to smuggle drugs on to -- look, no, this isn't about me. Lindsay, he's my only kid, and his whole life is at stake.

Lindsay: I know. I went through this with Jen. I did everything I thought I could to help her, and then I realized the best thing I could do is to try and set a good example.

Daniel: How?

Lindsay: By trying to bring stable and positive people into my life.

Daniel: Stable and positive. Well, I guess that leaves me out. I'm going to A.A. twice a day.

Lindsay: I think that what you're doing is great. Look, you're pulling your life together. That's the best thing you could do for your son.

Daniel: Thanks.

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

Natalie: Here's Cristianís sketchpad, so maybe we can get an idea for the memorial service, you know?

Roxy: Boy, he had a way with a pencil.

Natalie: Yeah.

Natalie: Oh, my god.

Carlotta: It's a sketch of you and a baby.

Natalie: Oh. Wow. We had so many plans for the future. You know what? We don't need a fancy memorial service. His art -- now, that's who Cristian was, right, you know? We should just -- we should get a group of his closest friends, his family, and we'll all gather around and we'll have all of his sketchings and drawings and paintings all around us, and I will remember him the way he wants to be.

Roxy: Right.

John: Hey, I hope I'm not interrupting --

Natalie: The takeout?

John: Food, yes, please. Thank you.

Natalie: A few minutes.

John: All right.

John: You seen Haver?

Jessica: No, John, I havenít. Just leave me alone.

Roxy: It's too bad Johnny ain't staying.

Natalie: Roxy, could you please just give it a rest?

Roxy: Hey, I thought you were ready to say goodbye to Cris.

Natalie: I'm ready to have a memorial service for Cristian. I will never be ready to say goodbye.

Roxy: Well, speaking of goodbyes, I got a client. I think I left hair straightener on her. Bye, Honey.

John: Why are you giving me attitude on this? Huh? You know, Haverís missing, and you are partly responsible for that.

Jessica: Really? Is there a warrant out for his arrest? Yeah, dot worry, I'll find out on my own.

John: Do yourself a favor -- stay out of this.

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

Stephen: Better work on your poker face, Rae. I can see that you're bluffing.

Rae: No. No, no, I do know who your next victim is, Stephen. I do.

Stephen: Ok. I'll play along. I'm thinking of a name. It rhymes with --

Rae: Marlena Haver. Your mother.

Stephen: Who I've been killing over and over and over for years now, right?

Rae: Because you won't forgive her. Isn't that it? You won't forgive her for abandoning you.

Stephen: That's enough, Rae.

Rae: No, no.

Stephen: That's enough.

Rae: You can't punish her, can you? That's why you -- that's why you look for her in all those other women. Women who -- who laugh and dance and -- and love life. And then you punish them. It doesn't help, though, does it, Stephen? Because the pain and the anger, it grows with each murder. Let me help you, Stephen, please. I can. You know I can. But you have to let me go. Please.

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

Jen: Hi.

Riley: Good luck.

Viki: Jen?

Jen: Hi.

Viki: Come in, please.

Jen: Is this about Joe?

Viki: No, Honey. Sit down. No, this is about your academics.

Jen: Oh, you mean my grades.

Viki: Yes. Jen, I had a little chat with your Dean, and I told him I wanted to speak to you because we have a relationship. You know, you are -- were -- my daughter-in-law. You're mired in a bit of a mess here, I know. At this point, you don't have nearly enough credits to graduate in the spring. You failed two courses last fall, and the semester before that --

Jen: This has been a really rough year, with my dad dying and my mom and --

Viki: I know, and your marriage.

Jen: Marriages. Look, I know you think I'm a total waste, and I know you probably didn't even want me to marry Joe.

Viki: Well -- no, I actually didnít. But, once you two were married, I really hoped that you would be happy. Anyway, let's get back to your place here at the university.

[Jen sighs]

Jen: If I even have one. Do I?

Viki: You could have, yes, if you start applying yourself. But if you don't --

Jen: I'm out of here.

Viki: Yes, exactly. Jen, I don't want to pry. I don't know what's going on in your personal life, but it seems to me you might want to consider making some changes there.

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

Natalie: You're awfully quiet.

Rex: Just thinking.

Natalie: About jen?

Rex: She just -- she won't give me a chance, you know? Every time I try to get close to her, she just pushes me away.

Natalie: Well, whatever you're doing, keep doing it. You're better off without her. Hmm.

Rex: I love her, Natalie.

Natalie: Oh -- Rex, why? She's a liar, she's selfish --

Rex: Yes, yes, and believe it or not, people probably said the same thing about you to Cristian when you two started dating.

Natalie: You're right.

Rex: Hmm. Come on, Natty. Help me think of something to do for Jen that'll, like, just totally blow her away.

Natalie: I'm sorry Rex, but you're on your own.

Rex: Yeah.

Jessica: Yeah, I must have missed Antonioís call again. Yeah, well, if he checks in, can you tell him that I'm trying to reach him? Thanks.

Natalie: Can't get a hold of Antonio?

Jessica: No, he's tied up for the next few hours.

Natalie: Jess, what was going on between you and John earlier? I mean, it looked really intense. It's about that Haver thing again?

Jessica: Yeah, it's about that Haver thing. He's accusing him of being a serial murderer, Natalie, and he didn't do it, ok? I mean, I know that you have this thing for John and everything, but he's crazy.

Natalie: We're friends. We're friends.

Jessica: Come on. Come on, Natalie, it's me. I see what's going on.

Natalie: Jess, the last thing I want right now is to fall in love again. Ok? I know what it feels like to open yourself up to someone. It hurts so much.

Jessica: Hey, I'm sorry. I mean, you know, I'm the last person to tell you to go be with John. Trust me. But if you guys have something, some kind of thing going --

Natalie: Forget it, forget it. He's -- he doesn't want to be with anybody, either. He knows what it feels like, too.

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

John: Hey. Anything new?

Bo: Yeah. Forensics sent blowups of the footprint that was found outside of Haverís house. That's hard evidence.

John: They match. They match the prints taken at flash's crime scene. That's good. I got something, too. Check this out. A local orthopedist called me. I picked this up on the way back.

Bo: Prescription for Stephen Haver for a heel device to correct uneven leg length.

John: That's the kind of thing that could cause an impression like that, Bo. You know, there was this other theory I wanted to run by you. I've been thinking about it for a while. You see that second shot? Man of average height. That might have hit him in the leg.

Bo: Then, further injury to the leg that Haver hurt jumping from the fire that killed his grandparents.

John: May have caused permanent damage. Maybe he's wanted revenge ever since.

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

Rae: I can help you, Stephen. Please. I can.

Stephen: Ok. Why not? How about a little role-playing? You, of course, will play my mother.

Rae: No, no, I --

Stephen: No, no, no, no. No more talking.  No more talking, Rae. No more talking. Only singing. Singing. My mother loved to sing. She sang all the time. Songs of love, songs of peace, songs of protest. There's one that she loved -- here, down on the floor. Assume the position. Here we go. Cross your legs just like this. Just like this. Very good. Put your hands up like this. Take my hand and sing.  We shall overcome we come on, Rae, sing. I don't hear you.

Both: Shall overcome now I do believe

Stephen: We shall overcome this day keep singing, Rae.

Rae: We

Stephen: Yes, that's it. Keep going.

Both: We shall overcome we shall

Rae: O--

Stephen: Sorry, Rae. Didn't work. Still hate the bitch.

Stephen: Good night, mother.

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

Lindsay: I had a good time.

Daniel: You know, I did, too. Let's do it again? Soon?

Lindsay: Ok.

Daniel: Ok. Bye.

Rex: You two looked pretty cozy.

Lindsay: Hmm. Rex --

Rex: Hmm?

Lindsay: Ok, I think it's time for me to tell you something. Whatever was going on between us, whatever that was, it's over. I mean, Danielís interested in me, and he is more my --

Rex: Age?

Lindsay: Yes. But I like him. And I don't want to ruin it.

Rex: Ok, we're still friends, aren't we?

Lindsay: You know, I don't even know if that's --

Rex: Hey, listen, there's a Pollock exhibit in Philly, and I was thinking maybe we could check it out together.

Lindsay: I'm impressed.

Rex: Well, you taught me everything I know about art and wine. I was hoping you could teach me more.

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

Evangeline: I enjoyed being on the other side of the courtroom from you.

Nora: Me, too! I really did. And if your fool for a client hadn't fired you, we might have been able to see this thing right through to the end. Would have been fun.

Evangeline: Well, you really tore him apart on the stand.

Nora: Oh, please.

Evangeline: And if I was representing him, that wouldn't have happened.

Nora: Oh --

Evangeline: And I would be urging him to take a plea now, while you are worried.

Nora: I'm not worried.

Evangeline: Well, I would be if I were in your shoes. The jury's been out for quite some time now, and obviously, somebody is questioning his guilt.

R.J.: Hello, Nora. It's good to see you.

Nora: Hello, R.J.

R.J.: But I'm afraid I need to take my date back now.

Nora: Oh, me? Her? Ok, she's all yours.

R.J.: I'll see you.

Nora: See you.

Evangeline: See you and good luck.

Nora: Thank you.

[Evangeline sighs]

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

Bo: Haver's had it in for you ever since you shot him in the bad leg, huh?

John: He could have known I was back in New Jersey.

Bo: So then he starts killing in that area. New jersey, Delaware.

John: However he did it, the trail of evidence leads to MacIver.

Bo: But, you know, after MacIver confessed, Haver could have gotten away with it. But instead, he decides to just start taunting us.

John: To prove his point. He can get away with anything he wants. I was -- something I've been thinking about. I know it sounds ridiculously repetitive, but I still think we can get something out of MacIver. There was something I wanted to run by you, something in one of these files about how Haver had written some articles on the use of hypnosis, some special technique, you know. He used it in criminal psychology, exploration, something like that. You know, it's not out of the question that he could have hypnotized MacIver to confess right here in this office.

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

John: Hey, Troy.

Troy: What? What? What?

John: You remember Dr. Haver, don't you?

Troy: Yeah, I remember Dr. Haver. Rae Cummings asked me that already. She asked me about --

John: Sit down. Rae asked you, huh?

Troy: Yes. Yes, she asked me.

Bo: Did Dr. Haver ever give you anything, like somebody else's I.D. or keys?

Dr. Paulsen: I don't understand. This morning, Troy was relaxed, quite calm. He's been making progress.

Bo: Guard, guard!

John: Hey, give me that.

Troy: I need my medicine. I need my medicine! I need my medicine! Give me my medicine!

Dr. Paulsen: Troy --

Troy: Give me my medicine!

Dr. Paulsen: Troy --

Troy: Give me my medicine! I got to have my medicine! Give me my medicine.

Dr. Paulsen: Troy Ė

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

Jessica: Have you worked all day?

Natalie: Oh, and a double shift yesterday.

Jessica: You must be exhausted.

Natalie: If you're looking for Rex, he's gone.

Jessica: I'm going to go try Antonio again.

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

Riley: Hey.

Jen: Hey.

Riley: So, Ms. Davidson pull you in to tell you what a loser you were?

Jen: You too, huh?

Riley: You know, the funny thing about it is she was right about me. I dropped out of school so long ago I forgot how to pace myself. And they've got me taking so many courses that I don't really care about --

Jen: Tell me about it. I don't know, you know, some things she said really did kind of make sense, like the fact that I need to get a new life.

Riley: I think you're right.

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

Jessica: Natalie? Natalie? Natalie? I can't get a hold of Antonio at all, so I'm going to go home and try him there. You ok?

Natalie: Yeah. Fine.

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

Dr. Paulsen: Troy is behaving as if he's been programmed to take those drugs.

John: You said they were heavy hallucinogens?

Dr. Paulsen: Clearly, they've interfered with his recovery. I've administered some sodium pentothal to him.

Bo: Truth serum.

Dr. Paulsen: Troy will be in a trancelike state. That should enable him to confront anything he may be repressing.

Bo: All right, you know what? I'm going to hang out here. I don't want to put any more pressure on him than we have to. Ok.

[John sighs]

John: Troy, let's talk about Dr. Haver.

Troy: Hello, Troy. I'm Dr. Stephen Haver. I'm here to help you. We're going to become good friends, you and I.

John: Troy, let's talk about Dr. Haver. What did he do to you?

Troy: John McBain may be all that you say he is, but is he invincible? I'm feeling invincible. So invincible that I've killed you and no one can touch me.  No one will ever know.

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

Nora: Hi, Rae, it's Nora. I was hoping that you were back by now. Well, when you get home, could you give me a call? I miss you and I've got things to tell you. Ok, bye-bye.

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

Rex: Pinot Grigio, right?

Lindsay: Right.

Rex: Ha!

Lindsay: Italian.

Rex: See?

Lindsay: Mm-hmm.

Rex: Told you I'm a fast learner. I don't want to lose your friendship, Lindsay.

Lindsay: You're not going to.

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

Roxy: That's what I think we should do. I think we should double-team her. She should know that there is life after death. Well, you know, life after Cristianís death, that is.

Natalie: Mom!

Viki: Hi, Babe.

Natalie: What are you doing here?

Viki: How are you, huh? Roxanne actually came by the university and filled me in on the plans for Cristianís memorial, and I just wanted to help in any way I can.

Natalie: Hey, just long as you're there, that's enough.

Viki: I know that this is a very hard thing for you to do. I'm proud of you.

Roxy: Yeah, and I'm proud that you finally put Cristian to bed.

Natalie: Roxanne --

Viki: Um, I think what Roxanne actually means, Roxanne, is Cristian would be very happy that she's moving on with her life.

Natalie: Yeah. Who knows, maybe I'm finally starting to believe that's possible.

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

John: Tell me about the passes to leave Statesville. Who gave them to you?

Troy: Mavis.

John: The head nurse?

Troy: I told Dr. Haver that I saw Gabrielle. He told me to go back to the bar and keep meeting with her.  He told me that our friendship was a secret.

John: What else did he tell you?

Troy: He's inside you, making you do things. Colin is a part of you. You can't escape him.  Colin's inside me.

John: Why did you confess to killing Gabrielle? Who told you to do that?

Troy: Dr. Haver. He's my friend.

John: Do you know where he is now?

Troy: He doesn't come to visit anymore.

Bo: That son of a bitch Haver killed Gabrielle. He killed all of them.

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

Stephen: So careless of you, Jessica, to misplace your keys. Someone could have made a copy.

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

Bo: There's no doubt Haverís our man.

John: We just have to find him.

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

Jessica: Professor Haver?

Stephen: Jessica.

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

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

On the next "One Life To Live" --

Marcie: For the first time, I don't feel weird about being happy that we're getting closer.

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

Evangeline: The jury's reached a verdict.

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

Natalie: I'm having this really bad feeling that Jessicaís in trouble.

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

Jessica: How did you get Rae Cummings' I.D.?
