Duke: I don't understand, Kelly. What do you mean you're not Ace's mother?
Kelly: I love Ace more than anything else in this whole world. In every way that matters, I am his mother. Every way but one. I didn't actually give birth to him.
Duke: Well, then who did?
Kelly: I believe Babe Chandler did, the woman who kidnapped him.
Marcie: Michael, I知 fine! This is ridiculous!
Michael: You are not fine. You passed out.
Marcie: I fainted. It's not a big deal.
Michael: Well, it could be. We'll know once we get the results of your blood work back.
Marcie: Why are you overreacting?
Michael: Because I love you, Marcie! And if something is wrong with you, well, I need to know! And -- because I love you.
Daniel's voice: You're holding on to the hope somewhere deep down inside that you and Bo will get back together again. It's never going to happen.
Nora: Daniel, you are so full of it. I don't want to get back together again with Bo. I mean, sure, we had a great marriage and everything, but it's been over for years, and I'm ok with that. I'm ok with everything. We're doing great. We've got this whole parenting thing down and we got the working thing down. The parenting, working, no romantic-ing. Nothing romantic-ing. We're not romancing. We're -- we're not doing any of that. Ridiculous!
Paige: Am I -- am I early?
Bo: No, no, you're right on time. Come on in.
Paige: I didn't know what you were making, so I brought red, white wine, and --
Paige: Rose, just in case.
Bo: Oh, great. Then you got all the bases covered.
Paige: So you're really going to make us dinner?
Bo: Yeah, of course. What, did you think I was just another pretty face?
Paige: Well, what's your specialty?
Bo: Scrambled eggs, usually. But tonight it's steak.
Paige: Oh. This is good because I love -- love steak. Boy, did I get lucky.
Bo: Yeah, but I also made some backup dinner reservations, you know, just -- just in case.
Paige: Here you are making reservations and I知 bringing three bottles of wine.
Bo: Quite a pair, huh? Well, why don't I open one of these bottles of wine?
Paige: Uh, just a minute. I haven't given you a proper hello yet.
Starr: Dad. Dad? Dad? It's just you.
Dorian: Hello, dear. Any word from your father?
Dorian: He's probably in Paraguay by now. How's your mother?
Starr: I don't know. She hasn't come out of her room. She's just lying there like a blob.
Dorian: How long has that been going on?
Starr: Ever since I got home from school.
Dorian: Where's Jack?
Starr: Jeanette took him to the movies. I'm thirsty. I'll be right back.
Blair: Starr, I figured it out! I -- Dorian?
Dorian: What did you figure out, sweetheart?
Blair: This letter. Todd didn't write it.
Margaret: Look who's up. It's Mr. Sleepyhead! I didn't know that you were such a late riser. You have been sleeping all day. I hope that you're hungry. Well, you won't be able to eat with your hands tied to the bed, will you? I guess there's no harm in me untying them. You're certainly not going anywhere, are you? Oh, you can barely move, much less walk. Poor baby -- ah!

[Margaret and Todd scream]
Margaret: I really wish you hadn't done that, Todd!
Duke: Babe Chandler is Ace's biological mother? I mean, Kelly, you were pregnant, weren't you?
Kelly: I had a son. He died.
Duke: Kelly --
Kelly: There were complications, and I didn't want Kevin to know that there might be something wrong with the baby, so I left town and that's when I had him.
Duke: You were all alone?
Kelly: No, my brother Paul was with me.
Duke: And you didn't tell dad?
Kelly: I was terrified. I thought he would leave me.
Duke: You thought dad would leave you because your baby died?
Kelly: He was going to divorce me before I got pregnant. He was chasing Blair all over town. Me being pregnant and having his child was the only thing keeping us together. And it sounds so silly now, and insane, but he was my whole world back then. I loved him so much.
Duke: So, what did you tell dad?
Kelly: After my baby died, Paul got me another one.
Duke: He got you another baby?
Kelly: He told me that -- that there was this homeless woman and that she had given birth to a son and that she didn't want him.
Duke: Wait, Kelly, so you just took the baby and passed it off as dad's and yours?
Kelly: I knew -- I knew that Kevin and I could give that child a good home, and we did. And the moment I held Ace, the moment I looked into his eyes, I knew that he was mine, and I could not have loved him more than if he were my own.
Duke: But then you found out he wasn't some unwanted baby?
Kelly: Yeah. Paul lied to me, and that's when I started looking for Ace's biological mother. And that's right before he was kidnapped.
Duke: So you figured whoever Ace's biological mother was was probably the one who'd taken him.
Kelly: Well, things started making sense. David and I tracked her to North Carolina, and we've been trying to catch up with her ever since.
Duke: Well, I understand now why you didn't want to involve the police.
Kelly: I couldn't take that risk.
Duke: And dad knows all about this?
Kelly: He knows everything. I wanted him to let me do this my way. But, no, he has been having a private investigator follow me.
Duke: Kelly, if Babe Chandler is Ace's biological mother, then you have no claim to him. So what are you going to do when you find him?
Riley: You sure you're ready for this?
Jen: Yes, I am. Promise me that you don't think I killed Paul.
Riley: I'm sorry I even doubted you for a minute. It was just my -- it was just my dad was putting thoughts in my head --
Jen: Your dad? Oh, great, great. The D.A. thinks that I killed Paul.
Riley: No, no, no, he's just digging around. That's what he does. He doesn't trust anyone. Everyone's a suspect, ok? But I'm not going to let him hurt you, I promise. I love you too much.
Jen: I love you, too.
Riley: Come on.
Riley: No, no, no, no, let your voicemail pick it up, please, please.
Jen: Oh, it's Marcie. I saw her at the gym this morning. She wasn't doing so great. I'll get it. Hey. Are you ok?
Marcie: Yes, but I知 in the hospital.
Jen: At the hospital? What happened?
Marcie: I got dizzy and I fainted, but I知 fine. Michael's being really silly. He's making me take all these stupid tests, and he won't let me leave.
Marcie: No! No, no, Jen, it's not good because I'm fine. Could you come over here? You know, maybe you could try to help me convince Michael to let me go.
Jen: I'll be right there.
Riley: Marcie's in the hospital. Is she ok?
Jen: Yeah, but I just want to make sure for myself. You want to come with me?
Jen: I'm sorry. It looks like our plans kind of got ruined.
Riley: We got time.
Blair: No, he didn't write the letter.
Dorian: Oh, Blair!
Blair: I've been reading it over and over again, and somebody else must have written it.
Starr: Mom, you're exactly right.
Blair: I know I am.
Dorian: Then who? And why?
Blair: I don't know. He has a lot of enemies. Anybody could've written it.
Dorian: All right. Let's say they did. But then where is Todd?
Blair: I don't know that, Dorian, but I do know that he loves me and he loves his kids.
Dorian: Oh, you are in such denial!
Blair: I am not in denial, Dorian!
Dorian: Oh, yes, you are.
Blair: You tell me, why would he write this and leave without saying goodbye to us? Especially his kids?
Dorian: You told me that he said he was afraid of hurting you again --
Blair: I know what I told you.
Dorian: Of letting his family down!
Blair: Those were his demons calling him. We talked about it. I talked it over with him. He was fine. He wanted to marry me. I know that he did not write this letter.
Dorian: All right, he didn't write the letter. Now let's prove it.
Todd: Margaret -- Margaret, I'm sorry. Put the knife down.
Margaret: But you've made such a mess! Somebody has to clean it up! How are you feeling?
Todd: Like somebody who's been shot, Margaret.
Margaret: Look, you left me no other choice. You wouldn't come with me willingly. I said that I was sorry! Didn't I take the bullets out of your legs?
Todd: Margaret, I -- I need to go to the hospital. I may have an infection.
Margaret: Look, I took very good care of you. The wounds -- they're healing very beautifully. You just won't be able to get out of the bed. That's why I put on these nice, comfy pajamas.
Todd: When did you do that?
Margaret: Last night after you fell asleep. Oh, but don't worry. I didn't peek. Well, maybe just a little.
Todd: I'm sorry. I'm sorry that the food fell off. I shouldn't have done that.
Margaret: Yes, you are right. And if you do it again, I am going to tie you back up.
Todd: It's just that I -- I miss my children. Margaret, I miss -- I miss Starr. Maybe -- maybe I could call and let her know I知 ok.
Margaret: No. No, no, no, no, I don't think so.
Todd: Well, I promise Blair will never find out what's going on. I promise. It'll just be our secret. It's just that I miss my children. I -- I promise that Starr will never know where I am. Now, what do you say?
Bo: Whoa. I hope you like your steak well-done.
Paige: We, it just looks like we're having Cajun.
Bo: Hmm. God. You know, I could scramble up those eggs that we were talking about before. Or we have the backup dinner reservation, so --
Paige: I'm actually not that hungry.
David: Hello, Starr.
Starr: Hurry up and get in.
Starr: Hurry up.
Blair: So, David, can you help us? Please?
David: Yes. I spoke to a very dear friend of mine who's a forger -- a handwriting expert -- from Holland. She should be able to tell us if Todd wrote the letter or not, since you don't seem to want to take my word for it.
Starr: Give him the note.
Dorian: All right, fine. This is a note Todd left for the nanny.
Dorian: And this is the note that he left behind in the hotel room.
David: Ok. Ok. I will be back as soon as I can.
Blair: David? Thank you.
David: Don't mention it. After all, you're soon to be family.
Starr: Aunt Dorian?
Starr: I know that my dad did not write that letter. He couldn't have.
Todd: How about it, Margaret? Let me call my daughter; let her know I知 ok.
Margaret: No. I'm sorry, Todd, but I can't trust that you aren't going to give Starr some secret little message.
Todd: I won't, I promise.
Margaret: No! I said no! End of discussion! Why don't we talk about something else?
Todd: You look beautiful in that dress. It's still got blood over it. Why are you still wearing it?
Margaret: Well, I altered this dress with my own two hands just for you. Oh, and if you need to know, Blair is the one that picked it out.
Margaret: Yes, I found it in her closet just a couple days ago. I didn't think that she would mind if I borrowed it.
Todd: You really are crazy.
Margaret: Be nice, Todd.
Todd: You know, if you're trying to look like Blair, forget it. You don't stand a chance. And that dress is hideous. It's a joke. Blair hates it. I hate it.
Margaret: Ugh! How dare you talk to me that!
Kelly: What will I do when I find Ace? I have asked myself that question so many times.
Kelly: And if he's safe and Babe Chandler seems like a good mother, then I guess I will have to let her have him and say goodbye.
Duke: But, Kelly, what if you think Babe isn't a good mother? I mean, Ace still doesn't belong to you.
Kelly: That doesn't matter. Because I meant what I said. I will do whatever it takes to keep that boy safe. I will do what's right for him.
Marcie: Oh, hi.
Riley: Hi, Marcie.
Jen: How you doing?
Marcie: I'm fine. Hi.
Jen: Did the tests come back?
Marcie: Stupid tests -- I'm fine. Michael is just completely overreacting.
Jen: Well, maybe not.
Michael: Jen, Riley.
Riley: Hey man.
Jen: Hey. Is Marcie ok?
Michael: Well, your test results came back normal -- aside from the fact that you are severely dehydrated.
Jen: Yeah, probably because you're working out too hard and not eating well enough.
Michael: What's she talking about?
Marcie: You weren't supposed to say anything!
Jen: Well, this is serious, Marcie. I'm worried about you.
Michael: What does she mean, not eating right, working out too hard?
Marcie: It's nothing, Michael, really. It's absolutely --
Michael: No, it's not nothing. This is because of that Hayes guy, right? Because he told you that you needed to lose weight and start exercising?
Marcie: Well, that's not a bad thing.
Michael: It is a bad thing if you're pushing yourself that you're so -- this is all because of that stupid book!
Doorman: Hiya, Starr.
Doorman: Got a package for your mom.
Starr: Ok. Aunt Dorian, I need tip money.
Dorian: Yes. Here you go. Thank you.
Starr: What is it? Who's it from?
Dorian: Yes, who's it from?
Margaret: If I had known you hated this dress so much, I never would have worn it. I'm sorry that I slapped you. You just make me so mad sometimes. Honestly, if I didn't love you so much --
Todd: Where are we, Margaret?
Margaret: In the mountains.
Todd: Which mountains? The Alleghenies?
Margaret: Oh. I chose this cabin because it was so secluded and pretty. Don't you think it's pretty? And I thought that you would love to watch the snow falling outside this window. Soon it will snow and snow and we'll be all snuggled in tight. Snowed in all winter like two bunnies.
Todd: All winter?
Margaret: We're going to be here all alone in this cabin, just the two of us, for a long, long time.
Bo: That was --
Paige: It was so nice.
Bo: It was amazing.
[Knock on door]
Paige: Are you expecting someone?
Bo: No. No, just ignore them and they'll go away.
Paige: Maybe you should answer it.
Nora: Bo? Bo Buchanan? Are you in there? I saw your car outside, and it's -- I need to talk to you. It's really important. Please be in there. It's real -- hi.
Bo: What is it?
Nora: What'd you do, fall asleep on the couch watching "All My --"
Nora: I, um -- hi, Paige.
Bo: You said that it was important. What's up?
Nora: Uh --
Paige: You know, I'm -- I知 just going to go freshen up a little, all right?
Bo: What is it that's so important?
Nora: Uh, yes. Well, I just wanted you to know that what happened the other day with me going over Daniel痴 head and dropping the charges against Dorian and David will never happen again.
Bo: That's what you came over here to tell me?
Nora: Yes. Because, you see, Daniel and I -- well, Daniel痴 my -- he's -- we're friends -- good friends. We're -- we're together, and I知 on his side, so there.
Nora: Ok. Good. Good. Well, as long as that's clear.
Bo: It's clear, it's clear. Is there anything else you wanted to tell me?
Nora: Um --
Paige: I'm -- I知 going to take off, ok?
Bo: Whoa, wait. Nora was just leaving.
Paige: No, no, it's all right. I should check in at the hospital anyway. I had a really great time. Thank you.
Bo: Me, too.
Paige: I'll call you later.
Nora: Bye, Paige.
Bo: Well, there she goes. Thank you, Nora.
Nora: What? I didn't chase her -- I didn't even know Paige was -- what in the world are you doing answering the door anyway, when it's obvious the two of you were -- were in the middle of something?
Bo: I thought you were going to knock it off the hinges.
Nora: Oh, I was not.
Bo: And what's with the tone?
Nora: What tone?
Bo: Just now -- the tone when you said, "You two were right in the middle of something."
Nora: Oh, there was no tone. I didn't have any tone. I mean, we -- it's awkward. I mean, that's all. It's just awkward. I mean, it was very obvious that you and Paige had just --
Bo: Had sex. We had -- had sex. Do you have a problem with that?
Marcie: You think my book is stupid? Is that what you really think?
Michael: That -- that is not what I meant. I love "The Killing Club." You know that I do. But pushing yourself to the point of passing out because your jerk agent thinks that you need to look perfect to sell books? That's stupid!
Marcie: He never said that!
Jen: We're going to take off.
Marcie: No, Jen, I want you to stay, really.
Jen: Listen to Michael. He's a doctor and he loves you.
Riley: Hey, feel better, Marcie.
Marcie: I will.
Jen: Call me later, ok?
Marcie: I will, I will.
Michael: I do love you, Marcie. But you got to promise that you're going to stop all this nonsense; that you're going to stop pushing yourself so hard, and that you're going to start eating right!
Marcie: No, I'm not going to do it.
Starr: Wow. Dad bought you that?
Blair: Read what he wrote.
Dorian: "The fifth time's the charm. I promise it's going to be forever this time. Love, Todd."
Blair: It's five diamonds. We joked about it last week about it being our fifth -- our fifth wedding.
Blair: So, what'd you find out?
David: Well, I have some good news and --
David: I have some bad news. The bad news is Todd wrote the letter.
Dorian: What's the good news?
David: I wasn't wrong for a moment.
Blair: But why would he do it? Why would he send me this beautiful necklace and then -- and then just walk out? It just doesn't make any sense. It doesn't make any sense!
Todd: You're not going to be able to keep me up here all winter because people are going to come looking for me.
Margaret: Oh, I don't think so. Do you remember that letter that I made you write? Well, as far as Blair is concerned, you walked out on her and the children. You abandoned them.
Todd: She's going to come looking for me, letter or not.
Margaret: Oh. Are you sure about that? Really sure? Because I know about your history with Blair -- all the harm and the broken promises. I've done my research on you.
Todd: I've changed. I've changed because of Blair, and she knows that.
Margaret: Oh, does she? People never really change, do they? Blair is not going to be coming to look for you. No one is.
Todd: What do you want from me, Margaret?
Margaret: I want you to fall in love with me.
Todd: And you think shooting me is the way to go?
Margaret: Oh, stop being so negative! We are going to be staying here in this cabin locked up until you do.
Todd: Well, you just go ahead and shoot me. You can shoot me 20 more times if you want. I don't love you, and I never will love you, ever.
Margaret: Stop saying that. Listen, if you'd just give it a little time, maybe you will --
Todd: No. Never. And you'd better get that through your head.
Margaret: Well, I thought you might say that. I guess I'll have to move on to plan B.
Todd: What's plan B?
Kelly: I have loved this boy since the day he was born. How could I let someone take him if she wouldn't be able to provide for him in the same way that I can?
Duke: Kelly, it's not your call. You're not his mother.
Kelly: I'm the only mother he's ever known. And what kind of mother would I be if I abandoned him when he needs me most?
Duke: All right, Kelly, you know what? Let's assume Babe is a terrible mother, ok, that Ace is better off with you, and somehow you get Ace from her. What then? I mean, don't you think that she's going to come right back to Llanview and try to take him again? And maybe next time go to the police with D.N.A. evidence?
Kelly: It won't matter. Because if I have to take Ace, I will take him and disappear forever.
Michael: So you're going to keep this up, huh? Working out too hard, not eating right?
Marcie: That is not what I知 doing, Michael.
Michael: You're going to sacrifice your health for book sales? That's genius.
Marcie: Michael, I worked really hard on "The Killing Club," and I知 going to do whatever I need to do in order to make this book a success! If you don't like --
Michael: Yeah, even if it kills you!
Paige: Hey, is everything ok in here?
Michael: Everything is fine, Dr. Miller. Just having a little disagreement with my patient.
Marcie: Oh, well, now I'm your patient?
Paige: Your girlfriend is your patient? I don't think so. No way. I want you off this case right now.
Paige: You know what? That's not a request.
Marcie: Listen, I'm fine. Really, I'm fine. And anyway, Michael was about to release me.
Paige: Michael, if you value your job, you will leave this room now.
Michael: Take good care of her. We might not always see eye to eye, but she means the world to me.
Blair: Why would he do it, Dorian? Why would he send me this beautiful necklace and then just leave me?
Dorian: I don't know, honey. I mean, in a way, I -- I really did want to believe that Todd didn't write the letter.
Blair: I was so sure. But he did, and you know what? Now he's gone.
Starr: Wait -- no, mom, that's not true. There's a missing piece to the puzzle, and we haven't figured it out yet.
Blair: Dorian -- shh -- would you take Jack and Starr home with you tonight? Because I just need some alone time, all right?
Starr: Mom, no!
Dorian: Of course.
Blair: Starr, it's not open for discussion. I just need some to think, ok, honey?
Starr: But, mom --
Blair: It's ok.
Dorian: It's fine. Jack and Starr will be in good hands with us, and we'll --
Blair: You listen to me. I love you more than anything in the whole world, and I am never going to leave you. You got that? Just give me some time, all right?
Starr: I love you.
Blair: I love you.
David: Listen --
Blair: Go with Aunt Dorian.
Dorian: Come on, honey.
David: Blair, for what it's worth, I truly am sorry that this happened to you.
Todd: What's plan B, Margaret?
Margaret: I may be a little confused at times, but I am not stupid. I know that you can't force someone to love you, that they have to feel that on their own and give it to you. But I love you with all of my heart. I wish you would know that and accept that, and that you would return that love to me. But I accept that you don稚. That's why I came up with an alternate plan.
Todd: Which is what?
Margaret: Do you really want to know? Well, then I will tell you exactly what is going to happen. And I think you're going to say what an absolutely perfect little plan it is!
Nora: I don't have a problem with you and Paige sleeping together. I really don't. I mean, what you and Paige do is really none of my business.
Bo: Sounds like you do.
Nora: Well, I don't, ok? I don't! I mean, it may bother me a little bit, ok, but, you know, why wouldn't it? I mean, come on, can you blame me? We used to be married, Bo. That's all. It's just a little strange.
Bo: What is so strange about it? I mean, you're in relationship.
Bo: You and Daniel are sleeping together.
Nora: No, we're not.
Bo: I thought you were.
Nora: Yeah, I know you thought that. And I let you think that, but you thought wrong. We're not.
Bo: Well, you know something? It really doesn't matter because we are not married now. We can sleep or not sleep with whoever we want.
Nora: Oh, yes, I知 -- I'm very aware of that. Yes, you made that painfully clear when you started hooking up with Lindsay while we were still married, in fact.
Bo: Well, at that time, we had split. See, we were still married when you hopped in the sack with Sam.
Riley: I want the first time we make love to be when we're completely focused on each other.
Jen: So do I.
Riley: I'll be upstairs in a few.
Jen: Don't be too long.
Riley: Are you kidding? "P.C." Paul Cramer.
Duke: Hey, no -- thank you, man. I owe you one.
Kelly: Was that your friend, the state trooper?
Duke: We have an address for Kate Anderson, a.k.a. Babe Chandler.
Kelly: Oh, give it to me! Duke, come on!
Duke: Kelly, what you're planning -- I don't know. I just -- I don't think it's right.
Kelly: Please. Please give me the address. You've helped me so much that -- I have to find Ace.
Duke: She's here in New Orleans.
Kelly: Thank you so much.
Kelly: Thank you so much. I will never, never forget this.
Duke: You want me to come with you?
Kelly: No. I think I need to do this on my own.
Nora: I didn't "hop into the sack" with Sam. It wasn't sexual or romantic. It wasn't like that.
Bo: Well, then, what was it like? And don't give me that garbage about trying to save my life by giving me a child.
Bo: There were other ways to go about that, Nora. You didn't have to sleep with your old boyfriend.
Nora: Hey, I -- I thought you forgave me for Sam.
Bo: Well, I lied. The fact is I don't forgive you for cheating on me, and I never will.
Blair: You bastard. Damn it, damn it, damn it, damn it! How could you do this to me? No! No!
Margaret: The end. That's it. That's plan B.
Todd: There's no way in hell I値l ever do that.
>> On the next "One Life to Live" --
Kelly: My baby.
Bo: You don't want to move on. You won't let go of me.
Antonio: What is it?
Cristian: I've been lying to everybody.
Margaret: You deserve to die!
