Proofread by Brian
[Today the part of Paul Cramer is being played by Shane McRae.]
Paul: Rex, it's me. How soon is that job going to happen? Because I need the money, man, bad. Oh. Hey, babe. I didn't know you'd be here.
Natalie: So, did you get everything straightened out at the bank?
Paul: Yeah. Like I told you, it was just a mistake. The money's in the account, safe and sound. The bank's going to send a new statement out tomorrow.
Rex: I'm on top of it.
R.J.: And make sure you stay there to the last detail. No screw-ups.
Rex: It's cool.
R.J.: Look, more than just money is riding on this.
Rex: I wouldn't be there otherwise. Get off my back.
John: Yeah, we're sort of working this angle between Gannon and Sonia Toledo.
Evangeline: Does it have anything to do with the Santi organization? Maybe R.J. worked for them in the past or wants to in the future.
Evangeline: I have a way to find out what R.J.'s up to. The perfect listening device and R.J. wonít suspect a thing.
John: Dare I ask what it is?
Man: I'll be in and out. No one will see me or my buddy. But they'll sure hear him.
Todd: All right. Asa is the only one that should hear him. He takes a walk every day down at the south edge of the property, a mile or two from the main road.
Man: Yeah, he'll hear my buddy. No worries.
Todd: All right.
Blair: So who was that?
Todd: It's a guy doing a job for me -- for us.
Blair: What kind of job?
Todd: Phase two of Operation Eviction.
Asa: Oh, where the hell is my walking stick?
Kevin: Grandpa, this is Mr. Santi. Asa Buchanan.
Tico: It's an honor to meet you, Mr. Buchanan.
Kevin: Mr. Santi says that he has an interesting proposal to make.
Asa: Oh. Well, I don't do any proposals, especially with strangers. Now, where the hell is the damn stick?
Kevin: Grandpa, it's right here.
Kevin: Be careful. All right, you've got my attention. Let's get a drink, and you can tell me about this life-changing offer of yours.
[Captioning made possible by ABC, Inc.]
Kevin: Look, thanks for the vote of confidence, but my time is kind of tight. Besides, I burnt too many bridges to get back into state politics, so if you don't mind --
Tico: You mean as long as Governor Brooks is still in office.
Kevin: You have done your homework. He asked me to do some things that I wasn't comfortable with so I resigned. Plus, I wanted to clean up some personal issues and -- look, like I said, that was a long time ago. I was naive. I thought if I was noble and honest, I could still come out a winner.
Tico: And now?
Kevin: Now I'm a realist. I know you can't win by playing clean.
Tico: What would you say if Governor Brooks were still interested in you as his running mate in the November election?
Kevin: I'd say you had the wrong Harrison Brooks.
Tico: What if I promised you that within two years, you would be Governor of Pennsylvania, and within a decade, President of the United States?
Kevin: I'd say you lost your mind. What makes you think I want to get back into politics, anyway, hmm? I run a multibillion-dollar corporation. I have everything I want.
Tico: Do you? You're an ambitious man, Kevin. Oh, may I --
Tico: I can see it. I can feel it. You want power. Money buys power.
Kevin: Yeah, well, so do connections.
Tico: I have all the connections. Are you interested?
Natalie: You gambled away $1,000?
Natalie: No. No! No! I -- I lived with this for too long with Roxanne growing up. I'm not -- I won't do it again. You're on your own, Paul.
Paul: Natalie, please don't say that. Look, you got to give me another chance. I'll get the money back. I've already got this great opportunity.
Natalie: Opportunity. You mean, like a job?
Paul: Your brother Rex, he --
Natalie: Rex? Are you crazy? Any job opportunity that Rex may have is probably illegal. You need to stay as far away as possible.
Paul: Natalie, it's cool.
Natalie: I am serious. You get involved in anything illegal with my brother Rex, and I am out of here so fast I won't be around to hear how much you're going to miss me.
R.J.: Oh, no. We have customers here.
Rex: I'm going to take care of that thing, ok? You want me on top of it; I'm on top of it!
R.J.: Just hurry it up. Ahem. Well, hello. A little something on the house.
Sonia: Thank you.
Man: Thank you.
Sonia: Adam, R.J. R.J., Adam.
Adam: How's it going?
R.J.: All right. Well, now you two enjoy.
R.J.: Yeah. Let's keep it real simple.
Sonia: You're good. Now give it back.
R.J.: Where's Rico Suave?
Sonia: He delivered what he was supposed to. Now he's gone.
R.J.: Well, I'll have to admit, I have never seen a business exchange quite like that one.
Sonia: I believe in mixing business with pleasure.
R.J.: So, you found where Octavio was staying. You removed any trace. Smart.
R.J.: Did McBain run you in, too?
Sonia: Yeah. I heard he really gave you the third degree.
R.J.: Three hours of arrogant posturing and muttering, but I survived.
Sonia: You know, I think you and I are going to make a really good pair.
R.J.: I was just thinking the same thing.
Sonia: As long as we stay one step ahead of McBain.
Evangeline: I wasn't asking your permission.
John: Oh, really?
Evangeline: John, R.J.'s very smart. He's got to know you guys are checking up on him, which means he's being extra careful; watching everything he says and everything he does. That's why you need me.
John: How do you figure?
Evangeline: Ok, let's say, God forbid, you and I got in a huge fight, ok?
John: Mm-hmm. We're headed that way.
Evangeline: Ok. I'm very upset --
Evangeline: And I go to Capricorn, and I see R.J. and Sonia together, which makes me very jealous. So I tell him I can't deny how much I miss him, that I made a huge mistake ending things the way that I did. He smiles. I smile. And suddenly, I'm in a position to find out what is going on between the two of them.
John: Then what? I just come busting in, I get the bad guy, I save the girl?
Evangeline: That sounds like a plan. Although, I'm not the kind of girl that needs saving.
John: It's also not a movie, Evangeline. That sounds like a movie plot, you know? What makes you think Gannon won't see right through you?
Evangeline: I'll be very convincing.
John: Oh, I bet. And how you plan on doing that?
Evangeline: Let me worry about that.
John: I'm already worried about it.
Evangeline: John, this is important to me.
John: Why do you want to do this? Be honest with me.
Evangeline: I dated R.J. very seriously. Maybe even loved him. And now he's suspected of murder.
John: Who told you that?
Evangeline: You didnít, but I have my sources. And I don't want to believe that he killed someone in cold blood; that I made such a gross error in judgment. Please, I have to know one way or another. Do you understand?
John: McBain. Yeah. All right. Yeah, I'll be there. I -- I got someplace I got to be. So, what do you say to a drink? Rodi's, a little later?
Evangeline: An hour?
John: An hour. And we will discuss this a little more. In the meantime, don't be doing anything stupid.
Evangeline: I am incapable of doing anything stupid. This isn't -- this isn't stupid. This is -- this is the only idea. This is a good idea. R.J.? It's Evangeline. I need to see you -- to apologize.
Natalie: I don't believe you.
Paul: Look, I know that you're mad because I lost money at the track.
Natalie: Paul, this has absolutely nothing to do with money. It's about the lies. The lying, Paul -- I can't stand it. I've lived with it for too long, and I'm not going to put up with it. You got that?
[Knock on door]
Natalie: Rex. What a nice surprise.
Rex: Hey, Natty! Great to see you. What did you tell her?
Rex: Ok, well, then what's her problem?
Paul: She knows you, man. She's suspicious.
Rex: Well, you do whatever you have to do to make her not suspicious. If she blows this, you're taking the heat.
Paul: I've got it covered. Trust me.
Asa: Who's there? Show your damn face!
Asa: Some mangy dog. Get! Get!
Asa: Whoa. Feet, you better get moving.
Blair: It's so frightening!
Todd: Asa --
Todd: Is going to be howling at the moon if everything goes as planned.
Todd: That's exactly right.
Blair: That sounds good!
Todd: And nobody will be able to prove a thing. They'll think he's losing his mind.
Blair: Oh, when we team up like this, you know what? It really, really turns me on.
Todd: Hmm, is that a fact?
Todd: Well, maybe I can do something about that.
Blair: Oh, oh, yes! A-hoo-hoo-hoo! Oh, yeah!
Tico: Financially and otherwise.
Kevin: Yeah. Why me?
Tico: Because you're a natural. You said so yourself, Kevin. You said that you know how to play the game. Haven't you missed it? The power? There's nothing like it.
Kevin: Ahem. All right, let's just say that I decide to go back into politics -- for argument's sake -- why would I need you?
Tico: What would I bring to the table?
Kevin: Your family's name is synonymous with crime --
Kevin: Brutality, murder. It would be political suicide for me to accept an endorsement from you.
Tico: Well, I could never openly be connected to your campaign, of course, but that could work to both of our advantages.
Kevin: How so?
Tico: As I said, I want to remain behind the scenes. There I could do things that you couldn't possibly afford to do.
Kevin: Like what?
Tico: Whatever is necessary. Whatever it takes to get you where you belong. So think about my offer, ok?
Jessica: What offer?
John: Heads you're right, tails you're wrong.
Natalie: Tails. How much did you hear?
R.J.: It's personal.
Sonia: Is everything set for our little art transaction?
R.J.: Mm-hmm, as planned.
Sonia: You know, I got to say, I'm kind of surprised you're dealing with such low level stuff.
R.J.: Look, if you don't like the paintings, just say so.
Sonia: No, no, no, no, no, no, it's not that. It's just, like, this -- it seems like the kind of job you would've pulled for the Santis 10 years ago. I thought you'd have moved on to bigger and better by now.
R.J.: Well, no I've been keeping a low profile. You know, look, the company has been stimulating, but I am meeting someone, so excuse me.
Evangeline: Thanks for meeting me.
R.J.: I'm all ears.
Evangeline: First, get rid of your girlfriend.
R.J.: Right -- Ms. Williamson, jealousy? I didn't think you had that in you. This is going to be interesting.
Jessica: Jeremy was outside. He let me in.
Kevin: Well, it's good to see you. Mr. Santi, this is my sister -- wait a minute. You guys know each other, right?
Tico: Jessica saved my life.
Kevin: Yeah, I heard something about that.
Jessica: Yeah, please, it was -- I did what I could do. It was nothing. So, what are you guys doing?
Tico: Oh, I came to talk to Kevin about a business proposition I have in mind. Has -- has Antonio found his mother yet?
Jessica: No. And you haven't heard from Angelina?
Tico: No, no, not yet, but -- well, it hasn't been long, though.
Kevin: Well, what's this all about?
Jessica: Antonio's looking for Carlotta. She just took off to Puerto Rico and didn't tell him about it.
Kevin: Well, that's odd.
Tico: Yeah. You know, it's possible that Tia Carlotta -- you know, she probably took the woman who raised me, Angelina Paredes, you know, to visit some friends.
Jessica: She would've told Antonio.
Tico: Yeah. Yeah, you're right. You know, I'm sure Antonio will find them. Will you call me if he calls you?
Jessica: And call me if you hear from Antonio.
Tico: I will.
Tico: Ok. I'll see you soon, ok? Kevin, I must go, but I hope you will consider my offer. Yeah, ok. I can see myself out. Bye.
Kevin: Ahem. I thought I was on your do-not-see list.
Jessica: Well, I came to see grandpa.
Kevin: Renee said that mom went to a conference.
Jessica: Yeah, she left yesterday.
Kevin: How's she feeling?
Jessica: She's fine. Grandpa!
Kevin: Grandpa, what are you doing?
Asa: There's a wild animal loose on our property.
Todd: We're going to be in that mansion by the end of the month.
Blair: You know what? We're going to throw a huge party. 12 courses. We're going to invite my mama, Viki -- oh, and Jack and Starr. They're just going to love it.
Todd: It's just a house, baby. The important thing is that everything Kevin owns is now ours.
Blair: Oh, yeah? Sit that wine down. Put your arms up.
Blair: Yeah! I love it when you talk dirty.
Angelina: I was out shopping. I needed some things.
Tico: Well, I could've sent someone.
Angelina: You always want to do everything for me.
Tico: Because -- because I love you.
Angelina: And I love you, too, Tico.
Tico: Then I need you to trust me, Angelina.
Angelina: I always have.
R.J.: Can't say I'm surprised.
Evangeline: I know this must be confusing -- my wanting to meet with you, but I still don't know if there's a future for me and you, either.
R.J.: Neither do I.
Evangeline: But I do know that I made some really unfair assumptions about you, especially that accusation that you were behind that attack on John. That was just -- well, that was just plain wrong. I mean, I've always known you have a past, but I also know who you are now, and so I'm sorry.
R.J.: Well, I don't know what I'm supposed to say or feel. And your motives --
Evangeline: No motives. No motives. It's just -- um -- it's just an apology. No more, no less.
R.J.: Well, what if I don't accept or believe you?
Evangeline: Then I move on with a clear conscience.
R.J.: And if I do?
Evangeline: R.J., I've said from the beginning I've always hoped that we would stay friends.
R.J.: I'd like that, too. I have -- I have missed you. I was a nice guy when we were together.
Evangeline: I missed you, too.
Natalie: Never said that.
John: You're right, it's your business. Which means you two haven't been living together that long if you're having all these problems.
Natalie: Ok, look, I am just worried, ok? Now, Paul and Rex, they've become kind of friends or something, I don't know. You know, and I love Rex. I really -- I love Rex. He's -- he's more of a brother than even Kevin and Joey.
John: So what's the trouble?
Natalie: Rex is always looking for an angle, you know, a quick buck. He doesn't seem to care if it's against the law, and I just really don't want Paul to get sucked into it. You know, he's trying to go on a straight path, and I'm probably putting too much pressure on him.
John: Natalie, it's natural not to want to be living with a criminal.
Natalie: Ok, Paul has a job now. He's working for Kevin, you know, flying him around. I'm not trying to change him or anything. It's just --
John: Well, if he's smart, he'll do whatever it takes to prove that he deserves you.
Paul: How many paintings are in the truck?
Rex: Why do you need to know?
Paul: We need to know exactly how long it's going to take to transfer the art from the truck to our van.
Rex: Relax. I told you -- the armed guards are --
Paul: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, they're inside guys, but we still need to time it out!
Rex: Hey, hey, hey! My boss tells me what to do; I tell you what to do.
Paul: I'm just trying to help.
Rex: Well, don't, or you're out. Clear?
Paul: Mistake number one -- I've been doing this a lot longer than you, Rex -- working people, making scores since I was 17.
Rex: I'm unimpressed.
Paul: Better pay attention to someone with experience, or else you're going to come out the loser -- like you did with your little nightclub, remember?
Rex: That's it, deal's off.
Paul: I'm not out! I need the money too bad.
Rex: Don't care.
Paul: I'll spill my guts -- Natalie, John McBain, anyone who will listen.
Asa: I am telling you, there is something out there --
Kevin: Oh --
Asa: And it sounded like a wolf! Now, I have got thoroughbreds here. They're liable to spook and could get hurt!
Kevin: Grandpa, it's probably just a dog or something.
Asa: I know what a wolf sounds like!
Jessica: Kevin --
Kevin: All right, now, look, just don't do this now. Wait until morning. It's dark outside. You're liable to shoot somebody's pet or yourself, for crying out loud.
Asa: I've been handling guns since I was able to walk, and the only way to deal with a wolf is right here!
Asa: Asa Buchanan. What do you want?
Asa: Who the hell is this?
Kevin: Hold on. Hello. Who is this? Hello? There's no one there.
Asa: It was the wolf.
Jessica: The wolf was on the phone?
Asa: He must've hung up.
Kevin: Grandpa --
Asa: I know what I heard, Kevin! I know what I heard! Somebody's playing old Asa for a damned fool!
Blair: You're crazy!
Natalie: Guess so.
John: Oh. Want to play a quick game?
Natalie: Um --
Evangeline: I'm so sorry. How late am I? Hi, Natalie.
Natalie: I think I'm going to take a rain check. I'm kind of feeling tired. Have fun.
John: Hey -- don't forget about what I said about Cramer earlier.
Natalie: Don't sweat it.
John: Hmm. Hey.
Evangeline: Hey, I really am sorry I'm late.
John: No worries. You want to play?
Evangeline: Why not?
John: Good. And while we're playing, you can tell me about your talk with Gannon.
Evangeline: How did you know?
R.J.: Mm-hmm. Have another.
Sonia: Know you two were an item. I do my homework. Of course, she seems to be with John McBain now, doesn't she? It doesn't seem interesting to you that she comes sniffing around here as soon as he's sweating you about Octavio Vigil?
R.J.: You think I don't know what she's up to?
Sonia: So what are we going to do about it?
R.J.: Let's just wait and see what happens.
Sonia: You're still in love with her.
R.J.: What do you want from me? I mean, what -- what are you after? Because I'm beginning to get the feeling that you're the one that I should be careful of, not Evangeline.
Sonia: She's not even in my league.
R.J.: Oh, no, no, no, no. I'm not Vega. You start playing those games with me, and we're going to finish them.
Sonia: I'm going to like doing business with you.
Kevin: No, I sent Jeremy and Bill out to look for him. They'll find him. Look, I'm worried about him, too. Renee and I tried to get him to see a doctor. Of course, he refused.
Jessica: Well, what, do you think this is the onset of Alzheimerís or something?
Kevin: Well, I don't want to think that. No, you know what? He's just tired. He'll be fine. He will. He has to be.
Jessica: You really love grandpa, don't you?
Kevin: Of course I love him. I love my whole family.
Jessica: Well, be careful, Kevin. You're starting to sound like the old Kevin. You know, the one that we're all proud of? The one that we miss, mom and I.
Kevin: Jess, this is who I am.
Jessica: I'm going to call later, check on grandpa.
Paul: Fine. Whatever.
Natalie: Oh. Planning a trip?
Paul: I was just showing Rex where I'm always flying Kevin -- you know, resorts where he meets with the bigwigs.
Natalie: Mm-hmm. Didn't you discuss that job opportunity?
Rex: Yeah, it's -- it's not a -- a sure thing. I shouldn't have mentioned it, but I'll keep you posted. Well, I got to get up early tomorrow; meet the architect at the construction site, so I'll see you.
Natalie: Rex -- wait. I really hope you're not dragging Paul into something a little scandalous here.
Rex: Natty --
Natalie: Because he's got a job now, and he's not going to gamble anymore.
Rex: Good for him. I was just mentioning a possible side job that I knew of.
Natalie: I don't understand, because I thought you were so excited and proud of all the work that you were doing at the community center.
Rex: I am.
Natalie: Then stick to it! Forget about all these scams and trying to pull something over on people.
Rex: I'm not! God, Natalie, what -- what's with you?
Natalie: Especially don't try to pull one over on me, because I've known you way too long.
Rex: And you love me, right?
Natalie: Yeah, I do love you. But I don't trust you. So leave Paul alone.
Evangeline: Ok. Ok, I did go to see R.J., and I admitted that I was wrong, and I apologized for jumping to conclusions about him being behind your mugging.
Evangeline: And I told him that I missed him.
John: And was that part of the act?
Evangeline: John, I'm here. I'm right here with you. So, you going to help me with my game, or what?
John: Bend over. So, you think Gannon bought it?
Evangeline: I'm not quite sure. He's -- um -- he's almost as hard to read as you are. But even if he didn't buy it, he'll keep me close just to figure out what I'm up to, which could still work.
John: Keep this elbow straight. I don't like it because it's dangerous. But since you're hell-bent on doing it, I'm going to have to watch your back.
Evangeline: I feel safer already.
Natalie: Really, really dumb.
Paul: But I'm going to work hard to put the money back in the account, I promise.
Natalie: Don't promise anything. Just don't do any more stupid things and then lie to me about it!
Paul: Natalie, please, don't be down on me. My life's nothing if you turn back. We can get through this. Come on, you know we can. We've got too much going for us to quit. Please. Stay with me. Do you believe that I love you?
Natalie: Yes, Paul, but -- you know what I love about you? You accept me for who I am. So you're going to have to give me the chance to do the same for you. And to start, I need you to tell me what Rex is trying to get you involved in, and I promise not to get mad. I will just try and understand and accept it.
Paul: Natalie, I --
Natalie: Paul, you're going to have to tell me the truth. You have to be honest, or we have nothing.
Kevin: What happened?
Jeremy: Mr. Buchanan did something to his ankle. He said he was hunting a wolf in the South Woods.
Kevin: Thank you, Jeremy. Are you ok?
Asa: I'm fine. I'm healthy as a horse. And I'm not going loco if that's what you're thinking.
Kevin: Look, Renee and I just want you to see a doctor, get checked out. We can bring in Dr. Baker if you want. You trust him.
Asa: Yeah, but he's in Texas.
Kevin: So we go to Texas. Grandpa, I need you to be healthy and strong right now, in full capacity now more than ever.
Asa: Is this about that Santi fellow who was here earlier?
Kevin: We talked about the possibility of me going back into politics.
Asa: Huh. What's he after? Because you can bet that he's after something.
Tico: What interest could he have in Kevinís son? I hope this Todd Manning doesn't become a problem.
Blair: What are you doing?
Todd: It's a throw-away cell phone. We don't want anybody to trace this call here.
Blair: You are so smart.
Todd: I just got word that Kevinís on his way to Houston.
Todd: He's going to see Duke. He's going to bring him back here to Llanview so he can go to school -- Wharton.
Blair: And we care about this why?
>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "One Life to Live."
Dorian: There are ways, my dear, that you can beat Kevin.
Todd: I say we evict Mr. Buchanan immediately.
Sonia: Angelina's here.
Jessica: Oh my God! You have to let me talk to her, then! She might know something.
