One Life to Live Transcript Thursday 7/22/04
Proofread by Brian
Man: You haven't seen the last of me, lady.
Daniel: Hey, you got a problem; you talk to me, man.
Bo: Get him out of here. Get him out.
Daniel: Hey, you ok?
Nora: Yeah. Yeah, that's the lab technician I prosecuted. He's the one that -- he contaminated Bo's and my food that infected us.
Daniel: Ok, what the hell is he doing here?
Bo: He just showed up; started making threats at the staff. You know, it's like he wanted to get caught.
Michael: I'm telling you, that guy was really off his nut.
Bo: Yeah, we've got C.S.U. in the lab right now. They're going to have enough to put him away for a long time. I'd say make it at least 10 years.
Daniel: You can count on it.
Nora: Are you kidding? He held me prisoner in my own home. Make it 20.
Bo: Yeah, 20. Well, that's cruel and unusual. All right, what's the occasion?
Nora: Oh, we're going to the opera in Philly.
Daniel: Yeah, we just stopped by to see a friend of mine who had surgery.
Bo: Hmm. Well, you're looking good.
Nora: Yeah thanks.
Daniel: Why is it every time it's just supposed to be the two of us, it always ends up to be the three of us?
Evangeline: I came to say goodbye to Mary Barnes. She moved here after I told her the threat from the Santi organization was over.
John: She moved here?
Evangeline: It's cheap. But now she wants to move again.
John: She scared?
Evangeline: It'll take some time, you know? Well, I got to go. I have, like, a ton of work to do, so see ya.
John: You, too. You -- uh -- you want to join me for a drink?
Sonia: What are you doing here? Thought you said our business was over, and that business was our only connection.
Sonia: Tico. I didn't hear you come in.
Tico: So this is the famous Hookup. Not exactly your style.
Sonia: Yeah, I know. It's a fixer-upper. The price was right. And with a little bit of work, I'll turn this dump into a class act.
Tico: So, this is where the guys take their clothes off?
Sonia: It's funny, Antonio was a natural. I swear, that guy being a cop is like a tiger in a playpen. It's going to break loose.
Tico: Are you sure you want to play with this tiger?
Sonia: I'm sure.
Antonio: What, they've never seen two people in love before?
Jessica: No. Ever since you've got back, we've been all over each other.
Antonio: I like that.
Jessica: Yeah, so do I. It's nice. Especially since what's been going on with my family, you know? Kevin and Todd are at each other's throats. Everyone's taking sides. It's just -- it's awful. So, why don't we talk about your family? You know I'm interviewing Tico later for the "Banner Sun." Thought maybe I'd get some of the Santi secrets for you.
Antonio: No. No way. Don't do it, Jess.
[Captioning made possible by ABC, Inc.]
Jessica: Why don't you want me to interview your cousin?
Antonio: Because we don't know enough about Tico yet. Hey, all of a sudden, he's part of the family; he's working the people that I care about.
Jessica: He's not working me.
Antonio: If you think you're going to be able to get a guy like that to open up to the press --
Jessica: A guy like what?
Antonio: Honey, he's from a different world.
Jessica: Exactly. That's exactly the angle that I'm going to take. He's a classy guy, mobster father --
Antonio: Yeah, unless the classy part's a lie.
Jessica: Just because he's Manuel Santi’s son does not inherently make him a criminal, ok? It's like saying the child of a terrorist is going to be a terrorist.
Antonio: No, Jess, it's not the same thing at all.
Jessica: Ok, well, then fine. Just like you always tell me, just doing my job.
Antonio: Ok. Then ask him a few questions for me.
Jessica: Like what?
Antonio: Like who raised him when his mother and brother were murdered; names, addresses. How did Sonia come into the picture? He claims that he didn't know who his father was until about a year or so ago. What happened when he found out the truth?
Jessica: Why don't you ask him that yourself?
Antonio: Because people get nervous when cops ask questions.
Jessica: Well, then you might want to consider the possibility that he is the nice guy that he seems to be.
Antonio: I hope so. I really hope so.
Sonia: That's where you come in. Give me a little help.
Tico: You haven't changed. Ever since you were a teenager, when you wanted something, nothing could stop you.
Sonia: It was always pretty useful, wasn't it? It will be here, too.
Tico: I'm glad we agreed on coming to Llanview. I'm looking forward to getting to know my family.
Sonia: Tico, you already have a family. Don't forget that. We're all the family we need.
Marcie: I know. I hate it.
Jen: Did they find out who did this?
Marcie: Not yet.
Jen: Need some help? How you feeling?
Marcie: You sick?
Julie: I'm fine.
Nick: Where's Riley, the big rock star?
Jen: How should I know?
Marcie: Riley went with Shannon and Hudson. They're looking over the neighborhood for contributions. They're going door to door.
Nick: All right, well, while why don't you go with them, because you're totally useless with the physical stuff.
Jen: Shut up, meathead.
Marcie: You know what, we're all working really hard here, ok?
Nick: Oh, really? Why don't you go pick up another piece of paper, fat girl?
Marcie: You know what --
Mark: Guys, will you both shut up! Look, we're all ticked off we have to start over, but whining and fighting isn't going to get it done.
Marcie: Thought you were supposed to go with Riley. You guys have a fight or something?
Jen: You mean a lover's quarrel? We're just friends, Marce.
Marcie: I know. I mean, I just thought, you know, you are rooming together now, that maybe --
Jen: Yeah, and now I'm more confused than I've ever been, if that's possible.
Marcie: About Riley?
Jen: I get the feeling that he wants more, but, I don't know, he gets gun-shy. I mean, I know he really loved Flash and she broke his heart. I don't have the kind of track record that really makes a guy feel safe.
Marcie: No, that's not true.
Jen: I just -- I really think that Riley and I could be good together. But then on the other hand, I really love his friendship, and I don't want to lose that.
Marcie: No, you're not, you don't have to lose it. I know that I don't have as much experience as you do, but I've learned that lovers can be friends, you know? And it's the greatest feeling in the world.
Evangeline: Do you? The Santi organization is shut down. It's an ideal opportunity to take some time off. I didn't think so.
John: You know, I -- I thought I was the one asking the questions, counselor.
Evangeline: Excuse me.
Evangeline: After what he did, you know, practically stalking me, I told him it's over, and he's not taking it very well.
John: You think I should talk to him?
Evangeline: Absolutely not. Not necessary. R.J. wouldn’t do anything. He's just hurt. But time heals everything, right?
Rex: So if I do what you want, you'll let me buy my way back into U.V., even though technically you foreclosed on my mortgage?
R.J.: Take it or leave it.
Rex: What's the plan, boss?
R.J.: Find out what McBain has going with Evangeline.
Rex: Wait, I thought you two were together.
R.J.: Not anymore.
Jen: The way I remembered it, you guys hated each other.
Marcie: Yeah, things change.
Nick: Hey, Jen, you want to work with me? We can get dirty together.
Marcie: Jerk. Do you remember what a jerk Michael was when I first met him, especially when I told him about my brother Eric?
Jen: Oh, yeah, a total homophobe.
Marcie: I can't believe I didn't walk away.
Jen: And you almost did.
Marcie: Yeah. But he came around, didn't he? Once he got it in his head that he was a narrow-minded, homophobic meathead.
Jen: Once he fell madly in love with you.
Marcie: We never see each other anymore, you know? I'm always here; he's always at the hospital pulling double shifts because he's trying to make up for all that time when he was laid up. And I can't even spend nights with him, you know, because I have to stay at the cottage, and there are tons of beautiful, skinny girls out there that don't have to work day and night and don't have to spend every waking hour with the same group of people that I don't even like or care about.
Jen: Marcie, you're doing what you have to do.
Marcie: I guess so. It's just that I don't care anymore, Jen. I don't care if I get an A. If I lose Michael, then nothing else really matters.
Bo: Well, you know what, he's in custody now and he's not going to come back.
Nora: What are you talking about? What -- we've been alone lots of times.
Daniel: A couple times. Great times, mind you, but -- I thought we were really connecting. I -- am I crazy? Am I being deluded?
Nora: No. No. No. Not at all. We are -- we are connecting. You know, we -- we're connected. We're -- can I find another word? That makes me feel like an electrical outlet.
Nora: It -- you know what? I think Bo’s probably not going to be done with this for a little bit, and we've already missed our opportunity to make curtain at the opera, so I have an idea. Why don't we go back to my place? Matthew's at a sleepover, and there's no need for anyone to disturb us there.
Tico: Ahem. I'm sorry. Am I early or late?
Jessica: Neither, actually. You're right on time. I told Tico that he could meet me here so I could interview him.
Tico: Join us.
Antonio: No, no. Actually, something just came up.
Tico: Well, we should make plans. I want to spend more time with you and Tia Carlotta, and Jamie, of course.
Antonio: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, I -- I'd like that, too, of course. Don't let this guy snow you.
Jessica: Hey, have a seat. Oh.
Tico: You want something to drink?
Jessica: No, I'm fine.
Tico: Kir royale, please.
Jessica: Wow. I don't think they have many orders for that here.
Tico: So, let's get started. I've never been interviewed before.
Jessica: Well, I just figured we'd talk and see what happens.
Jessica: Do you mind if I tape-record our conversation?
Tico: I have no secrets.
Jessica: Well, everybody has at least one secret.
John: You obviously play.
Evangeline: Oh, yeah. Yeah, 12 years, 12 years. 12 years I studied music. My teacher said I had a big career ahead of me.
Evangeline: Yes, and I studied ballet and tennis.
John: Like wonder woman. I bet you were good at them all.
Evangeline: Well, you know, my daddy never raised me to be second at anything.
John: Hmm. But the law came first.
Evangeline: Just between you and me, I -- I knew that I might be really good at some other things, but if I was going to spend my life doing something I wanted a shot at being the best. So I went to law school, and I graduated editor of the Law Review, clerk at the Supreme Court at age 26, and now I'm here, and, oh my God, if I have to keep listening to myself talk about myself, I think I'm going to be sick.
John: No. No, it's good. From what everybody says, you -- you really are, you're the best.
Evangeline: Tell me about you. Did you ever want to be anything but a copper?
Evangeline: Not even a cowboy?
John: No. When the other kids were playing cowboy, I was always the sheriff.
Jessica: Hi, R.J. Tico, this is R.J. R.J., this is Tico, Antonio’s cousin.
R.J.: Oh, just what we need -- another Vega.
Tico: My name is Augustico Santi. My father was Carlotta Vega’s brother.
Jessica: I'm sorry about that. Don't be insulted, please. There's just some bad blood between Antonio and R.J. It's just really complicated. So, you were talking about your mother's family.
Tico: Yeah, they were from Spain. They were very, very wealthy. They sent me to private boarding schools. I grew up thinking everybody spoke five or six languages and swung a polo stick. But you know what; I don't think your readers are interested in reading about that.
Jessica: Are you kidding me? European jet set, hot clubs on the Riviera? Of course.
Tico: My mother's family, they were more into chamber music at the Minister of Culture’s. But then after my father's death, you know, when I went into hiding, I left everything behind.
Jessica: Well, can you get it back?
Tico: I can try. Do you like art?
Jessica: Uh -- yes, actually. I used to work at a gallery, and -- oh. An old boyfriend of mine -- actually, Antonio’s brother -- he was a painter.
Jessica: It was a really long time ago, and actually, it was nice. He ended up marrying Natalie. You did it again. I'm the interviewer here.
Tico: You are much more interesting to me than I am. I want to know everything about you.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________Bo: So we showed this little jerk the witness statements and the physical evidence from the lab, and he just folded, you know? Started singing like a bird.
Nora: Well, good. Well, he should spend a lot of time in a cage for getting me trapped in a house with you.
Bo: Yeah, you know, I almost went a little bit insane myself, you know, watching you pace while you work.
Nora: I do not. This one can't talk on the phone without yelling.
Bo: Talk on the phone?
Nora: Yeah, talk --
Bo: Talk on the phone?
Bo: You wouldn't even let me use your phone. Don't you remember anything?
Nora: Oh, you have selective memory.
Daniel: Well, you know, it couldn't have been all bad. At least you two didn't kill one another.
Bo: No, no, actually, we worked out a little system, so the last few hours wasn't that bad.
Nora: I learned how to rise above it, so --
Bo: She's all yours, buddy.
Nora: So. So, should we go?
Daniel: You know, I should see my friend Steve. But I tell you what, why don't you give me an excuse to make it a short visit?
Nora: You're on. Hurry.
Daniel: I will.
Nora: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Thank you!
Bo: You could lose a limb that way.
Nora: Well, this elevator's so slow, it's worth the risk.
Sonia: Yeah, I was just sitting here thinking about what to do with this place, and -- and these guys just came bursting in.
Antonio: Ok. What guys?
Sonia: I don't know. I never saw them before. They didn't -- they didn't say anything. They just started breaking things and hitting me, and -- and they tried to go for my gun, but --
Antonio: Ok. Let me take you to a hospital.
Sonia: No. No, no, I hate hospitals. Doctors can't do anything for bruises. There's nothing broken, so --
Antonio: How many men?
Sonia: Two. Probably Jaime Padilla’s soldiers, come for a little payback.
Antonio: No. No, they wouldn't have left you alive. The Santis would never be this sloppy. These guys were amateurs. Why didn't you call the police?
Sonia: I don't know. I -- I thought they were coming for Tico. I wasn't thinking clearly. I was just so scared.
Antonio: It's ok. Yeah, it's Vega. There's been a break-in at The Hookup up at 27 North. Yeah, no injuries. Thanks. I'll -- I'll stay with you until they arrive.
Jessica: Who did you think your father was growing up?
Tico: At a very early age, I was told that my father had died, and my family didn't encourage questions.
Jessica: But there was -- there was a little over a year between the time that you found out that Manuel Santi was your father until when he was killed. Did you try to find him?
Tico: You can't know what it's like to wake up one day and discover that your father, the man that gave you life -- look, what I'm trying to say is that just the mention of his name and I've seen people freeze and back away. They say that he used to make people kiss the gun he shot them with.
Jessica: A few years ago, I found out that Clint Buchanan, the man who raised me, wasn't my biological father, and in actuality, it was a murderer, rapist, and monster who was really my father. And, well, thank God he's dead.
Tico: You know, the more we talk, the more I realize how much we have in common.
Jessica: You know, if I didn't know better, I would think that you were purposely trying to avoid my questions.
Mark: You know, you're doing an amazing job, Marcie. You're holding this whole project together.
Marcie: You don't have to do this, ok?
Marcie: Keeping me company. I'm sure you'd rather be with Jen or Shannon or Julie.
Mark: Actually, I wouldn’t.
Marcie: Can I ask you something?
Marcie: Well, you know, you're, like, the best-looking guy here. Why don't you have a girlfriend? I mean, why don't you have 10 girlfriends?
Mark: Why doesn't your brother Eric?
Bo: I'd be nice to it if I were you.
Nora: Well, call someone.
Bo: No service.
Nora: Oh -- help! Somebody!
Nora: Daniel! Daniel? The elevator's stuck! We're trapped! Get help!
Bo: See, you're not supposed to put an object in the closing elevator doors.
Nora: Are you saying this is my fault?
Bo: The shoe fits.
Nora: We're trapped in here! There's no way out! This is like the scene from "Speed 2," the elevator.
Bo: That's "Speed" one.
Bo: It was the original. It was the good one.
Nora: No, it was "Speed 2."
Bo: No, you're wrong. See, Dennis Hopper had the hostages.
Nora: Ok, you know what? That's it! You are the most argumentative man I have ever met in my entire life, and if I have to get trapped with you one more time, so help me, one of us isn't going to survive! Get us out of here now, please?
Marcie: Wow. I usually have better gaydar than that.
Mark: Well, I don't go around advertising it. I only told you because I heard you talking about your brother.
Marcie: Eric. Yeah, we're best friends. Hey, I'll introduce you next time he comes into town. He's way cuter than I am.
Mark: Stop doing that! You're beautiful, inside and out. That's why I wanted to tell you about me. But don't say anything to the others, ok?
Mark: Not everyone understands.
Marcie: I know.
Marcie: Oh. Hey, listen, if that's Michael, I have to get it, ok?
Marcie: Yeah, it's Michael.
Mark: I'll go help Nick dig out.
Michael: Marcie, it's Michael.
Marcie: So glad to hear your voice.
Michael: Yeah. I'm sorry that I didn't call you earlier. I was stuck in the O.R. observing. How are things going over there?
Marcie: Surprisingly, it's turning out to be a really good experience. Some of the people are really nice. But I miss you.
Michael: I miss you, too. You know, if I'd known before I broke my leg that I'd never see you, I would've tried a lot harder not to fall out of Dr. Long's window.
Marcie: Any chance you could sneak out later?
Michael: I'm sorry. It's really slamming over here.
Marcie: Ok. Well, I'll talk to you later, ok? Oh, hey -- don't forget about me, ok?
Michael: Not in a billion years. I love you, sweetie.
Nick: Hey, Walsh, you going to help us out over here or what?
Marcie: I have to go. Bye. I love you.
Nora: Just -- what's taking so long? What's going on? Why hasn't Daniel come back by now?
Nora: Daniel? Daniel, hi! I'm here! I'm here! "I'm here"? Of course I'm here. Where else am I going to be?
Daniel: How are you doing?
Nora: I'm in a 6'x6' box. How do you think I'm doing? Nifty!
Daniel: Are you ok? Are you alone?
Nora: No, Bo is here with me.
Daniel: Who else?
Man: Carl from building services here. The car snapped a cable. My guys are working on it, but it's going to take a while. Be patient.
Nora: Well -- "Be patient"? "Be patient"? We're dying of the heat, we're hanging by a thread, and he wants us to be patient.
Bo: Yeah, that's not one of your virtues.
Nora: No. No kidding.
Bo: Hey, empty your purse.
Nora: What, you going to rob me now?
Bo: No, you're a pack rat. There's got to be something in there that could help us get out of here.
Nora: Oh, Bo, Bo, Bo. This is an evening bag. It's for going to the opera in Philadelphia.
Bo: Look, if I know you, there's something in there that can help. Come on, empty it out. Come on!
Bo: What'd I tell you, huh? Do I know you or what?
R.J.: Got anything for me?
Rex: Uh -- soon, but you may not like it.
R.J.: They're together?
Rex: Yeah. But, well, so far it looks like a big zero.
John: Good luck. Colson's had budget on the brain lately.
Evangeline: If the Santi hit man hadn't killed himself, Mary would be a witness for the prosecution.
John: That's a good argument again, counselor.
Evangeline: Well, I -- gosh, it's probably late. I'm going to go.
John: Um -- thanks for the company.
Evangeline: You know, we survived the evening with our souls intact. Imagine that.
John: Imagine that.
Evangeline: See ya.
[Knock on door]
[Knock on door]
Evangeline: Hi. I -- um -- I accidentally picked up your paperwork.
Marcie: Michael! What are you doing here? I thought you were at work.
Michael: Oh, I am working, but I had a break. I wanted to spend it with you.
Marcie: I really needed to see you.
Michael: Yeah, me too. I know that it's kind of crazy right now, but it's not going to be like this forever, I promise.
Marcie: Feels like forever.
Michael: I know. What do you think of the plant?
Marcie: I love it.
Michael: I thought that we could plant it here in the community center and, you know, it would always remind people of how much Marcie and Michael loved each other, and, I mean, our kids could come and bring their kids and --
Marcie: It's a little corny.
Michael: Just a little.
Marcie: But I like it. It's beautiful.
Nick: Hey, hey, hey. You're slacking, Walsh. There's no time for boyfriends. You're on the clock, woman.
Marcie: Fine. I'll be there in a minute.
Nick: All right. It's your choice, little mama. This dirt isn't going to move itself.
Michael: "Little mama"?
Marcie: Don't ask. I hate him. Can't stand him. Michael?
Marcie: What are those? Are those bones?
Michael: Yeah. Those are human bones. Marcie, I think you guys dug up a body.
Bo: We can use all of this stuff to pry open the ceiling tiles up there, and then we can crawl out.
Nora: Are you serious? I'm -- I'm sorry. I just -- I don't see it. I don't see it.
Bo: Where's your sense of adventure? Come on!
Nora: It's in Philadelphia, at the opera.
Bo: Are you kidding me?
Bo: We've been in worse scrapes than this. We've always managed to get out of them. I mean, you know, we were a pretty good team.
Nora: Yes, we were.
Bo: So? You in?
Nora: What do we got to do first?
Jessica: Well, it has everything -- crime, death, mystery, and, to top everything off, a polo pony. The readers are going to love it. "The Son of Santi."
Tico: I would like to put all that behind me now.
Jessica: You will.
Tico: I'm going to go to the diner and stop by and see Tia Carlotta. Would you like a ride home?
Jessica: Oh, actually, I have my car. So I'll see you soon.
Tico: Yeah. Hopefully sooner than later.
Jessica: The unanswered question -- what has Tico been doing for the past year?
Officer: Will do, detective.
Antonio: All right.
Officer: Ma'am, you let us know if either of those thugs comes in here again.
Sonia: I will, thank you. Thanks.
Antonio: Well, as many people coming in and out of this place, it'll be a miracle if forensics finds anything.
Sonia: Yeah. Antonio, what if they come back? They will kill me.
Antonio: Let me get you home, ok? You'll feel better.
Sonia: No, no, no, please don't leave me. Just stay with me tonight.
Rex: Yeah, I'm at the Angel Square Hotel. McBain went upstairs and, a minute later, Evangeline followed him.
Rex: Things aren't as innocent as I thought they were.
Rex: Well, if she were my girlfriend, I'd want to kill them.
Evangeline: Whatever this is, it isn't exactly a relationship, right?
Todd: Let's make another baby.
Carl: The car's hanging by one cable. We may have a major accident on our hands.
