Antonio: Be careful.
Jessica: Thanks. Oh.
Antonio: Felt good, didn't it?
Jessica: Oh, it was amazing.
Jessica: No, no, no, no. We promised the babysitter that we'd be back.
Antonio: Well, she can wait a little while longer. It's been a long time since we've been together.
Jessica: Aah! Yeah, especially now that your cousin's been in the loft.
Antonio: Yeah. Yeah, Tico.
Jessica: I guess you still don't trust him, huh?
Antonio: Well, I just got to make sure that he's still not somehow involved in the Santi organization, that's all.
Jessica: Well, I mean, how could he be? He's never even met them. Listen, I think he's ok. It's actually that foster sister that --
Antonio: You still have a problem with Sonia?
Tico: I should, to say thanks for helping me find my family. The Vegaís have lived in Angel Square for a long time. They're a part of it.
Sonia: Yeah, and now you'll be part of them.
Tico: If they let me.
Sonia: I thought you said Carlotta seemed to like you. Your little sister, Adriana, was happy that you were here. And why wouldn't she be? You're the best brother in the world.
Tico: Yeah. It's Antonio I'm worried about. He's the key.
Sonia: Leave Antonio to me.
Tico: What about Jessica?
Sonia: Well, I'll leave Jessica to you.
Kelly: Oh, well, we'll talk to her later. I've got to go get ready.
Dorian: For what?
Kelly: For Kevin. He called. He's coming over.
Dorian: And you agreed to it?
Kelly: He sounded really nice on the phone. I think he might be having second thoughts about the divorce.
Dorian: Kelly, stop it. Don't make the same mistake --
Kelly: No, no, no. Dorian, Dorian, he called to ask about Ace. You know what that means? It means that he misses him.
Dorian: Honey, you told him that Todd was the father of your baby.
Kelly: I realize that. Maybe he's ready to forgive me.
Kevin: How you doing, kiddo?
Natalie: What do you want?
Kevin: What, I can't come and say hello to my kid sister in her new place?
Natalie: You never came to visit me at my old place. How did you even know I was moving?
Kevin: I heard about you and Paul.
Paul: What, no housewarming gift, hmm?
Kevin: Actually, I need to speak to Natalie. Alone.
Paul: Oh, here it comes -- another Buchanan giving you a hundred reasons why you should leave me.
Natalie: I'll handle it.
Paul: Ok. Uh -- I'll bring the rest of your stuff up. Don't even think about giving her a hard time, ok? She's been through enough.
Natalie: Is he right?
Kevin: I'm just asking you for a favor. I'm asking Joe and Jessica, too. It's for mom.
Natalie: Is she all right?
Kevin: Oh, yeah, she's fine. I just want to keep it that way. Look, as you know, the four of us have a large block of shares in "The Banner Sun," and there's some business coming up and I want your proxy for your votes -- just to take the pressure off of mom.
Natalie: Ok. I'll give you that. But I want something back.
Kevin: What'd you have in mind?
Todd: "Craze" has a new editor in chief -- Blair Manning.
Blair: I am not going to go back and work for Kevin. No way.
Todd: Who said you were?
Blair: He is the owner; he's the publisher.
Todd: He won't be when I steal it out from under him.
Blair: Are you serious?
[Captioning made possible by ABC, Inc.]
Dorian: When he found out the baby wasn't biologically his, he turned his back on him, the snake.
Kelly: He was upset, and I don't blame him after what I had to do to him.
Dorian: What you were forced to do! That baby, the baby you lost -- that baby was created out of your desperate love for Kevin, to keep your marriage together. And then when the baby died, you were so desperate that you went out and --
Kelly: All right, all right, all right. Dorian, you don't have to remind me. I was there, remember?
Dorian: I think you do need to be reminded. I think you're forgetting what's real here.
Kelly: You are the one who said I should let Kevin believe that Todd is Ace's father.
Dorian: But that was so that Kevin wouldn't take the baby away from you, not so that you and Kevin could get back together again.
Kelly: Well, the worst is over now. We should try to work things out for Ace.
Kelly: Oh, gosh. Um -- that might be Kevin. I'm not ready. Tell him I'll be down in a few minutes, ok? Just stall him.
Dorian: Right. Oh, Carlotta. Please come in. Thank you for coming over so quickly.
Carlotta: Tell me, has Adriana come out of her room yet?
Dorian: No, she hasnít. I -- maybe you can do better. Oh, Blair, it's Dorian. I -- I'm sorry to bother you, but I need you to come over right away. I think Kellyís going over the edge.
Blair: What's Kelly done now?
Dorian: Kevin called. He's coming over for some reason, and Kellyís convinced that he wants to reconcile.
Blair: Well, why would she ever think that?
Dorian: Because it's happening, Blair, what I've been afraid of -- she's losing her grip. Please, honey, we have to do something.
Blair: Dorian, I am not going to drop everything in my life to rush over there. She doesn't want to hear from me anyway.
Dorian: Do you want Kelly to end up like her mother, like yours?
Blair: Get her help, Dorian. Professional help.
Todd: What's going on?
Blair: Kelly has some kind of delusion that Kevin is coming over to make up with her, and Dorian wants me to go over and help her.
Todd: You've done enough.
Blair: Well, we've both done enough.
Todd: We need to stay out of it. We need to worry about each other.
Blair: Do I have anything to worry about? I mean, what's this I hear about you stealing "Craze" from Kevin?
Natalie: Ahem. First, I want to know what's really going on.
Kevin: I told you. It's for mom. Look, she's already taking on too much at the university. On top of that, she's worried about the paper, and I just want to lighten her load.
Natalie: Mm-hmm. And are Joey and Jessica all for this?
Kevin: Oh, they don't want her to overdo it any more than we do. Look, just sign right here, ok? Right here at the bottom.
Natalie: Uh-uh, not until I get what I want first.
Kevin: All right. What is it?
Natalie: Paul, come here a minute.
Paul: What, he finally talk you out of moving in with me?
Natalie: No. But he's going to have to get used to having you around. Paul needs a job.
Paul: Natalie, you know what they say about mixing family and business, right?
Kevin: I'll have to agree with him. I mean, what can you do besides break the law?
Paul: I'm a pilot. All I know how to do is fly, all right? I'm qualified for all small jets, and I've done enough chopper runs to last me a lifetime.
Kevin: Actually, I need a pilot for our corporate chopper and our jet, so we'll see how it goes and we'll take it from there.
Paul: Yeah, sure, that's -- that sounds good to me, all right.
Antonio: Oh, I talked you into it? Talked?
Jessica: And I have to go meet Kevin. I'm late.
Antonio: What does he want?
Jessica: I don't know, some sort of family business stuff, but I got to run. Don't forget to put Jamie down for her nap.
Antonio: I wonít.
Jessica: Ok? Bye, sweetie.
Antonio: Let's -- let's talk some more?
Jessica: Uh -- no.
Jessica: I have to go. Bye.
Antonio: All right, come on. Now it's just you and me, so -- hey. What do you want to do this afternoon?
[Knock on door]
Antonio: Ah. Guess who couldn't stay away. You want another kiss? Sonia.
Sonia: I was just waiting till you were alone.
Antonio: Come in. What do you mean you waited till I was alone? What are you doing here?
Sonia: Is that any way to talk to a relative?
Antonio: Oh, is that what we are?
Sonia: Hey, how about friends? What do you say?
Antonio: What are you up to, Sonia?
Adriana: I don't want to talk to anyone, ok? Nobody can help.
Dorian: Oh, dear, that's probably Kevin. Just what we need. River.
River: I need to talk to her.
Dorian: This is not a good time.
River: Dorian, please just let me in.
Adriana: I don't want to see you.
Carlotta: Look, you heard her. Now please just go.
River: No. Not until she hears me out. Please, Adriana, it's all I'm asking. Just let me explain.
Todd: He's not going to sell it to me. I've got Vickers fronting me.
Blair: And you're footing the bill?
Todd: Yeah, but Davidís saying Dorian is. Now, there's only one more thing that will make this deal perfect -- you, editor in chief. What do you say?
Blair: I love it. I say I love you.
Natalie: Well, you didn't think I was going to let you live off me, did you?
Paul: Hmm. You don't live off of you. How many jobs do you have these days, anyway?
Roxanne: You know, living off of love is ok when you're a kid, but as you get older and down the road, you need a lot more than love to keep those mighty morphins pumping. You know how much botox costs these days?
Paul: Oh, come on. You don't need botox. You look hot as it is.
Roxanne: You know, like I said before, this guy's a keeper.
Paul: Yeah, and I got a job, thanks to you.
Natalie: Yes, you've got a job. Kevin's got his proxy. I have you. I think we're all winners.
Jessica: Does mom know about this?
Kevin: Have you heard nothing I've said? I'm doing this so she has one less thing to worry about.
Jessica: So you're doing it behind her back.
Kevin: I'm not doing it -- I'm trying to help her, Jess.
Jessica: Or are you trying to get rid of Todd?
Kevin: Well, you have to admit "The Banner" has changed since he took over "The Banner Sun." I'm serious. The guy's running it like it's his old paper, and that's what he's going to turn it into. Now, are you willing to let Todd tear down what our family built? Just sign it, all right? Give me the right to vote your shares, and I'll make sure that doesn't happen.
Antonio: This is Jamie.
Sonia: Hello, you beautiful little lady. I'm just guessing here, but Jessica's not the mommy, right?
Antonio: Good guess.
Sonia: And here I thought you were leaving your fiancťe to have some fun with me. This cool, confident bachelor, just out for himself.
Antonio: Look, Sonia, you still haven't answered my question. What are you up to?
Sonia: Now, why do you assume that I'm up to anything?
Antonio: And did you really wait till Jessica left?
Sonia: Yes, I did. I didn't want to interrupt you. I figure you've got a lot of time to make up for.
Antonio: Yeah. We do.
Sonia: You know, I like Jessica.
Antonio: Do you?
Sonia: Mm-hmm. Tico has told me a lot about her. They seem to be getting along really, really well.
Antonio: Well, Jessica helped him out in Puerto Rico.
Sonia: It's a lot more than that. They both come from the same place. You know, private schools, the whole deal.
Antonio: Didn't you, too?
Sonia: No. I moved in with Tico's family only after my parents were killed. I was about 12. Before that, I was raised probably a lot like you. We were working people. We are very different than Jessica and Tico. They're used to having everything their own way, getting whatever they want.
Antonio: And you aren't?
Sonia: I don't know about Jessica, but Tico needs to know everything that's going to happen. I prefer surprises. Don't you?
Jessica: This isn't about mom at all. It's about you trying to get back at Todd and using the paper to do it.
Kevin: What, so now you're on Toddís side? Is that it?
Jessica: Well, mom appointed him.
Kevin: Yeah, well, he turned mom against me.
Jessica: Oh, come on!
Kevin: No, I'm serious. Is he going to turn you against me, too?
Jessica: Kevin, I'm never against you. Although I do have to admit that lately you haven't been yourself at all.
Kevin: That's right, I'm not myself. Todd's trying to ruin me. What am I supposed to do, just sit here and take it?
Jessica: I'll tell you what you're not supposed to do -- use your brother and sister to outsleaze Todd. Come on, I just -- I'm going to have to talk to Joey and Natalie before --
Kevin: Well, it's too late. They already handed over their votes to me.
Jessica: Yeah, because you didn't tell them what's going on, did you?
Kevin: No, I told them the truth, ok? I told them it was for mom. You don't want to believe it, that's fine. Just don't run to mom and upset her more.
Jessica: I'm not going to tell mom what you're really doing, but I am going to talk to Joey and Natalie first.
Kevin: Ok, you go ahead. You do what you have to. So will I.
Todd: You don't think I can pull it off?
Blair: No, it's not you. Come here. It's not you. It's David. I mean, he's slick, but Kevin is never going to sell it to him.
Todd: Yeah, just like Dorian would never take him back.
Blair: No, that's different. He loves Dorian.
Todd: He likes her bankroll, don't you mean?
Blair: No. I mean, he took that job because of Dorian. And you know what? He's good at it. What?
Todd: Not as good as when he's working with you.
Blair: Uh-oh, uh-oh. Ok, you know what? Maybe we -- hey, Todd, back up, back up, back up. We need to take this upstairs in case the kids -- the kids! Where are the kids?
Todd: Relax, relax.
Blair: Wait, wait wait, I haven't seen the since I walked in the door!
Todd: It's ok. Margaret is behind bars. You got nothing to worry about.
Blair: Where -- are they upstairs?
Todd: No. Jack is -- Jack is with the new nanny. What's her name?
Blair: It's Cynthia.
Todd: Cynthia, right. And listen to this --
Todd: Starr is upstairs, grounded.
Todd: Uh-huh. Do you remember that article trashing Kevin that almost made it into print?
Todd: Yeah, and Travis. They busted into "The Banner Sun's" mainframe, writing other articles.
Blair: I don't believe that. But I don't believe that you have punished "oh great one."
Todd: I am her father.
Blair: No, you're the president of dads who love too much. I mean, you have never punished her a day in her life.
Todd: I've changed.
Blair: Yes, you have. Ever since she was kidnapped, you are a changed man.
Todd: I don't know.
Todd: Maybe -- maybe I shouldn't get "Craze" to you.
Todd: Maybe that's too much like the old Todd. Maybe the new Todd -- he's kindler, gentler. He'd turn the other cheek. He'd tell Kevin, "I feel your pain, bro."
Blair: Oh, you are so full of it.
Todd: You don't want me to change that much, do you?
Blair: Not completely.
Todd: Well, don't you worry. There's plenty of that old Todd left for everybody.
Todd: Kevin's going to find out how much. So are you.
River: No, no --
Carlotta: No --
Dorian: River, don't touch her.
Adriana: What could you possibly have to say to me right now? I never want to see you again!
Dorian: You heard her, River.
River: Dorian, let me talk to her right now, please.
Dorian: She doesn't want to talk to you. River, what happened?
River: It's between her and me. It has nothing to do with --
Dorian: I am going to have to respect Adrianaís wishes. She does not want to see you.
River: You're kicking me out?
Dorian: I love you. You know that. Don't make me choose between you and Adriana.
River: Dorian, you got to believe that I never meant to hurt her.
Dorian: Well, you did hurt her. Deeply, from the look of things. Take responsibility. Stay away from her. Now, please go. He's gone.
Carlotta: Ay, gracias a dios.
Carlotta: Oh sweetheart --
Adriana: I can't talk about it.
Carlotta: Sweetheart, if you don't, we can't help you.
Adriana: I saw River and Shannon at the quarry together. They were making love.
Dorian: If he has the audacity to come back again, River will be so --
Tico: My name is Augustico Santi. You must be Dorian Lord Santi. Now I understand why Adriana is so beautiful. She obviously takes after you.
Dorian: Come in. Bienvenidos, Augustico.
Tico: Gracias. Is this a bad time right now?
Dorian: Yes, it is. Oh, I'm sorry. What I mean to say is that -- well, it's a bit hectic, but no problema. I just want to make something very clear, though. It was only for the briefest of moments that I was Dorian Santi, when I was married to your father.
Tico: Yes, I was told it was a very, very brief marriage. But still, you have Adriana.
Dorian: Did you mean it when you said she looks like me?
Tico: Of course I did.
Dorian: Well, she's a beautiful girl inside and out.
Tico: I am very proud to have her for a sister.
Kelly: Uh, is Kevin in the living room?
Dorian: No, dear, he isnít.
Tico: Please tell me we're not related.
Dorian: No, no. She is not a blood relation, though she is my niece, Kelly. Kelly, this is Augustico Santi --
Dorian: Adriana's half brother and Manuel Santiís son.
Kelly: Nice to meet you. So --
Adriana: Tico, I didn't know that you were coming.
Tico: They told me at the diner that Carlotta was here with you.
Tico: Are you ok?
Adriana: You don't want to know.
Tico: But you were so happy when you left Antonioís. You were on your way to see your boyfriend.
Adriana: He's not my boyfriend anymore.
Tico: Remember what I told you earlier? If anyone -- and I mean anyone -- hurts you, they have your big brother to answer to. And I mean that.
Natalie: They driving you crazy?
Roxanne: Yeah, because they're such spoiled brats. I run a very tight ship. They don't get away with anything, not on my watch.
[Piano plays darkly]
Roxanne: Boy, someone's having a real bad day.
Natalie: You want to take a break from moving in?
Paul: Yeah, I could use a drink. What do you say? Rodi's?
Natalie: I was thinking I had something else in mind.
Paul: Oh. Upstairs, huh? Well, I don't know. There are so many boxes, we might not be able to move around
Natalie: Shut up and come with me.
Paul: Yes, ma'am.
Roxanne: Oh, yeah, for how long?
Woman: Just one night. I'm teaching a master class at the university.
Roxanne: Yeah? You're a master? I'm a master of nothing. He's really good at tickling those ovaries, isn't he?
Antonio: It doesn't have to be boring.
Sonia: I think I'd kill myself if I had to do the same old thing day in, day out.
Antonio: Yeah, what, you want it to be like Puerto Rico, not knowing if you'll make it through the next minute alive?
Sonia: I kind of got off on that, didn't you? Isn't that why you're a cop?
Antonio: I'm a cop because I like to keep that from happening to other people.
Sonia: By going undercover as a stripper? That's got to be a first.
Antonio: Whatever it takes.
Sonia: You know, we've got something else in common.
Antonio: Yeah? What's that?
Sonia: Family honor.
Sonia: Yeah, really. No matter what you say, we're a lot alike, and you know it.
Adriana: Yeah, I think so.
Tico: Thank you.
Tico: I have something for you. Maybe it's going to make you feel better.
Tico: And I have these other pieces, which our grandfather designed. I wanted to return them where they belonged.
Tico: Don't you want it?
Carlotta: This jewelry has caused nothing but trouble for my family. They're a curse.
Tico: To me, they're a blessing. The numbers on the back of them -- they turned out to be the combination which helped Jessica open the Santi vault and find me.
Carlotta: No me digas.
Tico: If you won't wear it because of your brother, then wear it because of your father, who made it, and for me.
Carlotta: I always loved this bracelet. Gracias, mi sobrino.
Sonia: Just testing you.
Sonia: Why? You afraid you'll fail or afraid you'll pass?
Antonio: I told you before -- we were together; it was part of my cover.
Sonia: That's a shame. We made a really good team.
Antonio: All based on lies.
Sonia: Well, there's no lies now. Everything's out in the open. We could work together again. I'm reopening The Hookup. Why don't you come back and work for me? I'll make you a headliner.
Antonio: I like the job I have.
Sonia: Ok, how about I make you partner?
Antonio: You don't quit, do you?
Sonia: Not when it's worth it.
Antonio: I'm not interested.
Sonia: Really? You're a hell of an actor, then.
Blair: Let me just tell you, she says that she is going to be the sweetest little girl ever and that she's so sorry. She'll do anything along as she can see Travis again.
Todd: Ah --
Todd: The old divide-and-conquer ploy.
Blair: This time we have switched roles.
Todd: That's right. How does it feel to be the good cop?
Blair: You're the one that's got to parole her.
Todd: Well, maybe we can make her sentence a little shorter.
Todd: Here's how it's going to be -- no phone, no internet, no going out. Apologies to everybody.
Blair: Wow, look at Dudley Do-right here.
Todd: I learned from the best.
Blair: Oh, don't look at me. I've made many mistakes, my friend.
Todd: These kids don't come with instruction manuals.
Blair: No, they don't, unfortunately, but you know what? When I am at "Craze," I think I should set up this advice column -- parents for children, children for parents.
Todd: Well, you can now.
Blair: I don't know. It all depends if we get "Craze" from Kevin, and that's a big if.
Todd: Did I fail to tell you --
Todd: David spoke to Kevin already.
Todd: And Kevin is thinking about it.
Blair: You didn't tell me?
Todd: Did I forget to tell you --
Todd: That Kevin is going to bite? Did I tell you that he's talking to his lawyers right now?
Blair: Is it a done deal?
Todd: It's as good as a done deal.
Blair: Oh, that is so great! That is so great.
River: I took a couple lessons as a kid. I'm mostly self-taught.
Woman: Can you read music?
Woman: Where are you training now?
River: I donít.
Woman: You should. My name is Anita Vaccaro. I'm a professor of piano and music theory at Juilliard.
River: Yeah? New York?
Anita: We should talk.
Tico: Jessica, is everything all right?
Jessica: Yeah, fine. Just family stuff.
Tico: That can be the worst. Ask someone who knows. Why don't you tell me about it? Maybe I can help.
Kelly: Yeah. Yeah. It's always worked out for me. And, hey, things are looking up.
Adriana: Not the way I feel right now. I just -- I don't think things will ever be all right again.
Dorian: Honey --
Kevin: Kelly here?
Dorian: Yes, Kevin. Please come in.
Kevin: Hey. Thanks for seeing me.
Kelly: Of course I would. You want a drink?
Kevin: No, I'm all right.
Kelly: Oh, come on, it's not too early for martinis. I know just the way you like them.
Kevin: Look, I've been thinking a lot about what's going on with us and Ace.
Kelly: Yeah, you know, I think he's getting his first tooth. He's been crying a lot more than usual lately. I think he also misses his daddy.
Kevin: I miss him, too.
Kelly: I know you do. I know how much you love him.
Kevin: That's right, I do. Even though he is Toddís, he thinks of me as his father, and I want to be a father to him. So I've decided to sue for full custody.
Tico: It can happen.
Jessica: Well, it didn't happen to you, did it? Even though your father's enemies put you through that, you didn't go after them.
Tico: I didn't have to. Antonio did it for me.
Antonio: Hey! I didn't know you were going to be here.
Jessica: Hi, cutie pie.
Antonio: And Tico.
Jessica: Yeah. Well, I just -- we just ran into each other. You know, he was really great, and we were just -- I was just venting with him.
Antonio: Oh, why? Is something wrong?
Jessica: It's just Kevin.
Antonio: I see. Well, let's walk.
Jessica: Thanks for being a friend.
Tico: Any time.
Antonio: Shall we?
Sonia: He's trying so hard.
Sonia: To convince himself he still loves Jessica.
Tico: Well, he's doing a pretty good job.
Sonia: For now. But he wants me. He knows it. He's just not ready to admit it yet.
Dorian: Kelly, what's going on?
Kelly: He's suing for custody of Ace!
Dorian: How dare you! What kind of monster are you?
Kevin: Well, she's obviously an unfit mother. Look at everything she's done. Ace was just kidnapped when she was supposedly taking care of him.
Kelly: You'll never win.
Kevin: I could go on.
Kelly: You're not even Ace's real father. You'll never win!
Kevin: My name is on his birth certificate.
Kelly: It doesn't matter. I will never let you take him away from me. Never! I will never let this happen!
Dorian: Get out of this house. I mean it! I'll call the police if you're not --
Kelly: I will never let you have Ace! You are never going to see that boy again! Never! I will never let you within 10 miles of him! You bastard! Oh, God. Oh, God.
Todd: We got it all now, baby.
Blair: We have everything. What?
Todd: I'm getting that weird feeling again.
Todd: That "happy" thing.
Blair: I think you better get used to it. I think it's going to be a condition for the rest of your life.
Dorian: It's not going to happen, sweetheart. He won't take Ace away from you. I'll help you.
Kelly: What if we lose? What if Kevin wins? He doesn't do -- he's not doing this because he loves that child. He doesn't love that child. He's just -- he hates me! He hates me and he hates Todd! He's going to use it -- I won't let him -- I won't let him use Ace that way! Oh, God, what am I going to do? Oh, God. I am not going to lose that child! I am not going to lose my child! I don't care what will happen. I will do whatever it takes! I will not lose him! I will do whatever it takes!
Stay tuned for scenes from the next "One Life to Live."
Tico: I have no secrets.
Jessica: Everybody has at least one secret.
R.J.: Find out what McBain has going with Evangeline.
John: You want to join me for a drink?
Daniel: Why is it every time it's just supposed to be the two of us, it always ends up the three of us?
