Todd: Margaret didn't just fall off the face of the earth.  She sent me a post card from Mexico.  No, she's out there somewhere.  Find her.  Find her!  Damn it.

[Doorbell rings]

Kelly: Hey.  What's going on?  I heard you all the way down the hall.

Todd: If you're looking for Blair, she's at the hospital with her mother.

Kelly: Oh, yeah.  How is Addie?

Todd: She's fine.  Why don't you go see her there?  I got work --

Kelly: No, no, no, I don't think so.  I'm not going anywhere.  How are you?

Todd: I'm fine.  I'm terrific.  Never been better.

Kelly: Don't lie.  I know you're lying.

Todd: I really don't have time for this.

Kelly: Well, I guess you're just going to have to make time because I've go no place to be.  And you were really good to me last year, Todd, when I was going through a really rough patch.  You were a really good friend to me when I had no place else to turn.  So, I'm going to be a good friend to you. I'm going to return the favor.

Marcie: Michael, I got your message.  Wait a minute.  Please don't tell me that there's been another murder.

Michael: No, no.

Marcie: Oh, god, thank God.  I think I was about to hyperventilate.

Michael: Look, I'm sorry.  I didn't mean to freak you out.  It's just I knew you were in Jersey doing that book signing, and I was pretty sure you hadn't seen a copy of today's "Sun."

Marcie: No, why?  What about it?  "The Killing Club Killer"?  It says that Julie and Hudson's death -- they died because of my book.  "An inside source says the police are determined to catch the copycat serial killer before the rest of the author's friends from the love crew die"?

Riley: Jen --

Jen: Would you stop following me everywhere?

Riley: I'm not!

Jen: Everywhere I go, there you are.  At my mom's, at the palace.

Riley: Jen, come on.

Jen: What?  Your dad's coming home today.  He's going to try to put me away for Paul's murder.  Unless you can tell me something different, I don't want to talk to you. 

Nora: Oh.  Ok, well, put everything down, and then I'm going to go with you to the office because I got to get Matthew from Bo anyway.

Daniel: Fine, fine, fine.

Matthew: Surprise!

Daniel: Hey.

Nora: Oh!  Look who's here!  Come here, come here, come here, come here!

Matthew: Welcome home, mom.

Nora: Oh!  It's so good to see you.  I missed you.

Matthew: I missed you, too.

Daniel: Hey, kiddo.

Matthew: Hey, Mr. Daniel.  So, I surprised you, huh?

Nora: You sure did.  You sure did.  Where's your father?  Is he here?

Matthew: He has to go away, so he left me with Marianne.  She's in the kitchen.

Daniel: Ah.  Did he say where he was going, Matthew?

Matthew: I don't know.  Work stuff.  He said it had something to do with Jen.

Natalie: Going somewhere?

Bo: Yeah, I got a lead out of town, so I'm going to go check it out.

Natalie: Aren't Nora and Daniel coming back from their honeymoon today?

Bo: Yeah, yeah.  My trip timed out just right, didn't it?

Natalie: So what in the world is Llanview P.D. going to do without you and John?

Bo: Yeah, I got a note on that.  Where is he?

Natalie: He's with Evangeline, meeting her family.

[Organ plays]

Evangeline: Ok.

John: You know, we made good time.

Evangeline: Yeah, we did.

John: How you doing?

Evangeline: I'm ok.  Now, this is just a small family gathering, so I just want you to know, if you feel in any way uncomfortable, I'm ok if you prefer to sit it out.

John: You still trying to get rid of me?

Evangeline: No.  It's not you, it's -- it's just, you know --

John: What?

Evangeline: Nothing.  Nothing.  I'm glad you're here and I try to give you any more outs, ignore me, ok?

John: Done.  If you're ready, I'm ready.

Evangeline: I'm ready.

John: Yeah?

Evangeline: Yeah.

John: Let's go.

Woman: Oh, Cookie, I am so glad you could come.  Do you know you were always aunt Rita's favorite?  She was so proud of you.

Evangeline: Thank you.  Oh, I'm so glad to see you.  Mom, this is John and, John, this is my mom.

Woman: Hi.  Lisa.

John: Hi.

Lisa: Well, so this is John?  Evangeline has told me so much about you.

John: Not all bad, I hope.  I'm very sorry for your loss.

Lisa: Thank you.  So, this is the handsome detective that has fallen in love with my daughter?

Evangeline: Uh -- so everyone's here, I see.

Lisa: Oh, yes. Except you-know-who.

Evangeline: Hmm. I'll explain later.

John: Ok.

Man: Why, Evangeline.

Evangeline: Pastor Billings.  I'm so glad to see you.  I'd like you to meet my --

John: John Mc Bain.

Pastor Billings: Pleased to meet you, John.

John: You, too.

Pastor billings: I'm sorry it couldn't be under better circumstances.

Lisa: Would you mind if I steal you away a moment?

Pastor Billings: Of course.

Lisa: Thanks.  Excuse me.

Pastor Billings: Excuse me.

John: Are you ok?

Woman: Cookie.

Evangeline: Hi!

Woman: Hello, Evangeline.  How are you?

Evangeline: Toni and Brenda -- these are my cousins.

John: Oh.  It's very nice to meet you.

Brenda: Hello.

Toni: You must be the hot new boyfriend.

Evangeline: This is John.

Brenda: So, Cookie, running for office yet?

Evangeline: Brenda, please.

Brenda: It's all she talked about when we were kids -- how she was going to be the first black female president.

John: Oh.

Toni: We hope she hasn't given up on that.

Evangeline: Ok, we'll talk to you guys later.  It's so good to see you.  Come on.

John: Ok. Nice meeting you.

Brenda: Bye-bye.

John: "Cookie"?

Evangeline: Ok, don't even start because, you know, that door swings both ways, Johnny Mac.

Man: There's my girl.

Evangeline: Uncle Clay.  Oh, it's so good to see you.

Clay: Look at my hotshot lawyer.  You always made your dad so proud when he was alive.

Evangeline: Uncle Clay, this is John Mc Bain.

John: Pleasure to meet you.

Clay: How do you do, John?

Lisa: John is the police detective Evangeline's been seeing in Llanview.

Clay: Oh, local cop, huh?

John: That's right.

Clay: Thought you told your mother he was with the F.B.I.

Evangeline: Uh --

John: I was, till about a year ago.

Clay: Hmm.  An old friend of mine taught at Quantico.  Larry Stone.

John: Yeah, I knew Larry pretty well.  Actually, I used to teach one of his classes when he went on leave.

Clay: Hmm. Larry and I went to Princeton together.  Where'd you say you went to school?

John: I didn't.

Clay: Education has always been a pretty important part of our family, as I'm sure Cookie's told you.

John: I think it's pretty important, too.

Evangeline: Uh -- John's brother is a doctor.

Clay: Is that so?

Lisa: Oh, you must be very proud.

John: I am.  I wouldn't want him to operate on me, but --

Clay: If you don't mind me asking, John -- it seems rather curious that someone would go from F.B.I. agent to local policeman.  I mean, isn't it usually the other way around?

John: Well, it was the right move for me at the time.

Clay: What made you leave the F.B.I.?

Evangeline: Uncle Clay --

John: It's ok.  I left for personal reasons.

Clay: Personal reasons?  I see.

John: I think we have the time.  Is there anything else you'd like to know about me?

Bo: So, John's going to meet the parents, huh?

Natalie: Uh -- well, it's actually a funeral.  Her great-aunt died.  Everyone will be there, I guess.

Bo: Uh-huh.

Natalie: Well, it's a good thing that he's going, really.  I mean, who wouldn't?

Bo: So your long face today -- that would have nothing to do with the trip?

Natalie: Look, there's nothing going on between me and John, uncle Bo, ok?

Bo: Natalie, you're my niece, ok?  I care about you.  John is a good friend of mine.  I just -- I don't want either one of you to get hurt, that's all.

Rex: Are you still mad at me about yesterday?

Natalie: Is there anything else I can get for you?

Bo: No.

Natalie: Thanks.

Bo: Close the door.  That door.

Rex: You're not going out of town, are you?

Bo: Yeah, if I ever get out of here.

Rex: No, no, no, no, commissioner, you can't.  Colson's getting back today.  He's going to go after Jen.  We've got to protect her.

Jen: You're still here.

Riley: I'm not going to let you go through this alone.

Jen: Why would you think that?  I have my family, my friends.

Riley: Rex?

Jen: Among others.  They think I'm innocent, unlike you and your dad, who will just keep digging and digging until he finds proof that I murdered him.

Riley: How is he going to find proof if you're innocent?

Jen: Why don't you ask whoever's framing me?

Riley: I love you.

Jen: Will you stop saying that?

Riley: Jen, I do.

Jen: I can't do this.  You know, I can't see you anymore.  Just leave me alone.

[Phone rings]

Natalie: Llanview P.D.

Daniel: This is D.A. Colson.  Did commissioner Buchanan leave yet?

Natalie: No, but he's in a meeting.

Daniel: Interrupt him.  Now.

Todd: Kelly, have you -- have you seen Blair lately?  Have you talked to her?  She's -- she's so tortured that when Addie got sick, she thought Margaret had poisoned her.

Kelly: You don't really think Margaret's still around, do you?

Todd: Oh, she's around.  She's too smart to just show up anytime soon, but she's going to lay low, she's going to devise a plan, and then she'll come back.

Kelly: Well, I think you should let the police handle Margaret.  I think you should just forget about her.

Todd: Yeah, forget her.  I'll deal with Margaret my way.

Kelly: Well, what are you going to do when you find her?  I mean, let's face it, Todd, you and Blair have been through so much.  If you try to find Margaret and exact your own revenge, you're just looking for trouble.

Todd: Have you ever been tortured by a psychopath?  Or you ever been utterly, completely helpless?

Kelly: My brother victimized me for months.  He threatened and taunted me.  I got to tell you, if somebody hadn't already killed him, I'd be looking for a little revenge of my own.

Paul: It's about time.  I don't like to wait out in the weather.  It's damn cold out here.  So, you got something to say?  Say it.

Daniel: My God.  What did I do?

Daniel: He's dead.  I killed him.  Why'd you make me do it?  Why didn't you just go away?  What the hell am I going to do about it?  Just calm down, Colson.  Calm down, calm down.  You're smart.  You're the D.A.  You know how to handle this.  Everybody in town had a reason to want him dead.  All you got to do is make sure someone else goes down for it.  Anyone but you.

Nora: Daniel?  Daniel?  Honey, are you all right?

Daniel: Yeah.  Yeah, yeah, yeah.  I'm -- I'm fine.  I'm fine.

Nora: Well, you were a million miles away.  Are you sick?

Daniel: No, no, I --

Nora: You're as white as a sheet.

Daniel: Yeah, I'm fine, Nora.  It's just jet lag, I guess.

Nora: Then don't go into the office today.  Go upstairs.  Put your feet up.

Daniel: No, no, I said I'm fine.  I -- I got to get to the office and find out what Bo is up to.

Bo: Colson can threaten all he wants, but he can't do anything to Jen without more evidence.

Rex: Ok, so what if he finds some?  Look, somebody is trying to frame Jen.  You know it and I know it.  What if he plans more stuff while you're out of town?

Bo: If I didn't think that this tip was promising, I wouldn't be going.

Rex: Have you figured out who Ted is?

Bo: If this all works out, we may find a way to clear Jen's name.  Now, what I want you to do in the meantime is, you keep an eye on Jen, ok?  Don't let her do anything stupid.  And you.

Rex: Hey, you can count on me, commish.  I'll take care of her.

Lindsay: Oh. What are these for?

R.J.: For sticking by me with Evangeline. I know how you feel about my fighting for custody of Jamie, so it meant a lot having you in my corner.

Lindsay: How do you know I wasn't just saying that to annoy your ex-girlfriend?  I see how your eyes shine whenever you see that little girl.  And I also see how much she adores you.  This is a second chance for you, R.J., just like I had a second chance with Jen.

Jen: Mom.

Lindsay: What is it?

Jen: Your assistant said you'd be here.

Lindsay: What's wrong?

Jen: I have to go.

Lindsay: Go?  Go where?

Jen: Daniel Colson just got back from his honeymoon.  It's only a matter of time before he arrests me.  I have to leave town while I still have a chance.

Michael: Have you been alone all day?

Marcie: No.  I mean, Ron was already at work by the time I woke up.  And then the police guard and I went to my book signing.  And he's really not one for small talk, though.  Why are you asking me this?

Michael: Because I know how you are.  I know that you get all worked up over things and you're going to make yourself sick.

Marcie: I do not get all worked up, Michael!  I'm fine!

Michael: You're not.  Marcie, I want you to move in with me.

Nora: Hey.  Hi, Riley.

Riley: Hey, Nora.

Nora: You just missed your dad.  He left for the office a little while ago.

Riley: To go get more dirt on Jen?

Nora: Well, I wouldn't say that.

Riley: Oh, come on.  You know he can't wait to put her away.  Is there anything we can do to stop him?

Lindsay: Is this Rex's idea again?

Jen: No, this is mine.  I should have listened to him in the first place.

Lindsay: Oh, no -- no, wait a minute.  Whenever something that Rex says makes sense to you, you know you're making a mistake.

Jen: Well, I have to do something.

R.J.: Well, believe me, you don't want to do this.  Look, I know people who try to live life on the run.  It always ends badly.

Lindsay: It's just going to make you look guilty.

R.J.: And then you'll be giving Colson all the ammunition he needs to arrest you, and then he'll be able to deny you bail.

Lindsay: If you do this, there's a chance that I might not see you again.  No, I can't.  It's not an option.

Jen: I can't live like this anymore, with this hanging over my head.  Mom, what am I going to do?

Daniel: Why the hell isn't Bo answer his cell?  Natalie, your uncle didn't happen to say where he might be?

Natalie: No, he just said he was leaving town.

Daniel: Oh, come on.  You're his niece.  You wouldn't be covering for him by any chance, now, would you?

Natalie: Excuse me?

Rex: Lay off her, Colson!

Daniel: Why are you here?

Rex: You really want to know where the commissioner went?  He's out chasing a lead in the Cramer case.

Daniel: And how would you know?

Rex: You'd be surprised what I know.  He's got a new suspect in Paul's murder.  A good one.  One that's going to clear Jen and get you off her back.  That guy really needs to switch to decaf.

Natalie: Yeah, well, he's a jerk and so are you.

Rex: Oh, come on, Natty.  You know, you can't stay pissed at me forever.  I'm sorry, you were right.  I have a big mouth.

Natalie: Mm-hmm.

Rex: I promise, I will not dog on you about Mc Bain for at least the next 24 hours.

Natalie: Thanks a lot.

Rex: So where is he, anyway?

Natalie: He's with Evangeline.  Went to a funeral with her.  Her great-aunt died.

Rex: He's meeting her family?  Ugh.

Natalie: What?

Rex: I'm -- I'm sorry to break my promise, Natty, but it's going to be tougher than you thought to snag him away from her now.

Clay: Didn't mean to give you the third degree, detective.  No offense.

John: None taken and, please, call me John. I'm not on the job when I'm here.

Clay: Well, well, look who's here.

Lisa: What a surprise.  He must have come in from D.C.

Man: Lisa.

Lisa: How lovely of you to come.

Man: I'm so sorry for your loss.  Aunt Rita will be missed.  She was a great lady.  Uncle Clay.

Clay: How are you doing, Dennis?

Dennis: Very well, thanks.  Evangeline.

Evangeline: Dennis, how are you?

Dennis: You look so beautiful, as always.

Evangeline: Thank you.

Clay: I just read in "The Journal" that you just made partner at your law firm.

Lisa: Oh.  Congratulations.  That's quite an accomplishment.

Dennis: Thanks.

Clay: Your family must be proud as hell.

Evangeline: Dennis, I would like you to meet John Mc Bain.

Dennis: Nice to meet you, John.

John: You, too, Dennis.

Man: Dennis?

Dennis: Hey, Henry.  Long time, man.

Henry: Too long.  You were practically one of the family.  Right, Cookie?  We always wondered if Evangeline would ever find another guy as good as you.

Todd: Yeah, Paul was pure sleaze, but what he did to you doesn't scratch the surface of what Margaret did to me or Blair.

Kelly: Well, it's not really a race, and that's not really my point.

Todd: What is the point?

Kelly: My point is I know you, I think, pretty well.  And you like to be in control always. So if someone does render you completely helpless and you can't save yourself, you can't save Blair -- well, that's got to be just about the worst thing anybody could do to you.  But, you know what?  As horrible and as terrifying as that was for you, for Blair, for your family, it's over if you allow it to be.

Todd: And how I go about doing that?

Kelly: I let Paul control my life, and you're making the same mistake with Margaret.  Move on.  You got to let go.  It's the only way you and your family will ever survive this.

Marcie: Michael, I can't move in with you.

Michael: Why not?

Marcie: Because.  Because I'm staying with Ron, and, you know, I got him.  I mean, I realize that he's not as good as company -- company as you are.  But, at least I don't have to worry about him being the next victim of a serial killer, do I?

Michael: You think that I'm going to get killed.

Marcie: No --

Michael: That's what this is about?

Marcie: No, no.  All right, that -- that doesn't follow the pattern of "The Killing Club," so that's not it.

Michael: Well, I think it is.

Marcie: No, Michael, could you just stop?

Michael: Stop what?  All I'm doing here is trying to help you.

Marcie: That's it.  Michael, you can't help.  And you being caring and -- and concerned -- I just -- I can't handle that right now, ok?  I wish I could, Michael.  I wish I could handle that, but I can't.  I just -- I got to go.  I got to get out of here, ok?

Riley: I know dad just wants to do the right thing, but Paul Cramer was a criminal.  Can't he just let it go this one time?

Nora: Oh, well, come on, honey.  We both know your father better than that.

Riley: Yeah, I know.  She just keeps saying she's innocent, and I want to believe her.  I just -- I don't know.

Nora: Riley, I know how hard it is, when you love someone and you trust them, to think that they could possibly have committed a crime.  Believe me, I know.  God knows.  It took me a long time to understand what Troy Mac Iver was about, but I finally did.  And your father helped me with that.

Riley: I just thought we were going to spend the rest of our lives together.

Nora: Oh, honey, I'm sorry for what you guys are going through.  I hope that Jen is innocent and that she gets cleared of all this mess.  But, you know, in the meantime, your father is just doing his job.  And because you're involved, it just makes it that much more difficult, so try not to give him too hard a time.  Daniel Colson really is one of the good guys.

Daniel: Listen, Natalie, I'm sorry if I was rude to you before.  I -- I just got off a long flight and -- anyway, I'm sorry.

Natalie: It's ok.

Rex: What about me?

Daniel: Listen, Bo -- Bo didn't happen to say what this lead of his was, did he?  Because I could maybe help out with a suspect that I might know something about.

Natalie: Nope, Bo really didn't tell me much of anything.

Daniel: No -- no phone numbers?  No places where he can be reached?

Natalie: Sorry.

Rex: I told you, dude.  Uncle Bo is on his way to bagging a big fish, all without your help.

Natalie: Ok, is there anything else I can get for you?  Because my shift is over.

Daniel: No.  Thank you.

Natalie: Ok.  Let's get out of here.

Lindsay: What part don't you understand?  My daughter did not kill Paul Cramer.

Daniel: Look, I don't have time for this.

Lindsay: You leave her alone.  Stop harassing her, stop threatening her, or I swear to God --

Daniel: Or what?  Or what?  You'll shoot me to death like you did your ex-husband?  Or maybe the way Jen shot Paul Cramer?

Lindsay: You stay away from her.  You back off, or I will press charges.  I will ruin you, and you know I have the capabilities of doing that.  Stay away from my daughter.

Rex: Nice.  You ok?

Jen: I was going to leave town, but my mom convinced me to stay.

Rex: Good.  Bo's working on a lead.  He's getting close, Jen.  He's going to find Paul's real killer.

Natalie: I'm out of here.

Rex: Oh, you got to admit, this place is a lot more interesting than Rodi's.  Aren't you glad I talked you into switching jobs?

Natalie: Give it a rest, Rex.

Rex: Just trying to look out for you, Natty.

Natalie: I know you are.  But, I'm a big girl.  I can take care of myself.                           

Lisa: Behave yourself, Henry.  Evangeline and Dennis are ancient history.  You know what?  It is usually like this.  Some of these people haven't seen Cookie -- I mean, Evangeline -- for quite some time.

John: I understand.  You don't have to worry about me.

Henry: You know what they say about history repeating itself.

Lisa: Come on, Henry.  Your cousin Brenda is looking for you.

Dennis: So, Evangeline, when are you going to move out of Pennsylvania and move onto Pennsylvania avenue?  I've got an office view of the White House.  For the work you've been doing, my firm will take you on in a heartbeat.

Evangeline: Thank you, Dennis, but I'm happy.  I'm very happy in Llanview.

Dennis: If you ever change your mind, you know where to find me.

Evangeline: I do.

Dennis: Pleasure to meet you, John.

John: You, too, Dennis.

Lisa: Evangeline's been after me to come to Llanview for a visit.

John: Well, you should.  It's a good town.

Lisa: So, what do you two do for fun?  Do you enjoy the ballet as much as Evangeline does?

Evangeline: Oh --

John: Not exactly.

Evangeline: John's -- john's not really the ballet kind of guy, mom.

Lisa: Well, most men aren't.

Clay: What do you two do for fun?

Evangeline: We -- we just enjoy each other's company.  And we're rubbing off on each other a little bit. John has actually taught me how to pass a football.

Clay: Really?

Evangeline: Yeah, and throw a really mean punch.

John: At the gym, on the heavy bag.

Evangeline: Yeah.

Clay: You're into boxing now?

Evangeline: Yeah, so watch your jaw, uncle Clay.

Lisa: John, do you enjoy working at the local level for the police department?

John: I do.  Llanview's got a really good department.

Evangeline: Yeah, and he's been promoted to chief of detectives just last year.

Lisa: Well, good for you.

Clay: I can't imagine that it would compare working for the bureau.

John: I don't make comparisons.

Lisa: But you seem to really enjoy your job.

John: I do.  And it gave me an opportunity to meet Cookie here.

Clay: I'd say that makes you a lucky man.

John: I agree.

Evangeline: Well, that's because you're my uncle.  Listen, you know what?  You and mom -- you really should come visit us in Llanview.  John -- we could show you around, you know?  There's beautiful parks and great restaurants, and you could see where we work.

Henry: You two really seem like you're a couple -- you know, together.

John: And that surprises you?

Henry: Well, yeah.  I mean, under the circumstances, I'm surprised that you two are even dating.

Nora: Well, Bo must have gotten one solid lead if he went off in hot pursuit.

Daniel: Or he's trying to undermine me.

Nora: What?  Daniel.

Daniel: He probably knows I'm on a short list to replace his nephew as lieutenant governor now.  Whatever he's doing with Paul Cramer, he's probably doing it to undermine my case.

Nora: What?  Are you crazy?  Bo wouldn't do that.

Daniel: And how would you know?

Nora: Daniel, what is going on here?  I mean, I know you have strong suspicions about Jen, but, you know, she's not going anywhere.  So why can't you just relax and bide your time and wait and see what Bo brings back?

Daniel: No, somebody has to know where Bo is.

Rex: All I'm saying is I think a dollar is a little much to park my car.  I mean, it's only a set of -- come on.

Jen: I'll be right back.

Jen: I just thought you should know, Bo's looking for evidence on a new suspect.

Riley: He is?

Jen: He's going to prove you and your dad wrong, that I'm not a killer.

Riley: Jen --

Jen: No, Riley.  What we had -- it's gone.  You killed it the minute you stopped believing in me.

Rex: To commissioner Buchanan.

Jen: To commissioner Buchanan.

Kelly: I hate being by myself.  Have you listened to a word I've said?

Todd: Yes.  Revenge, bad.  Stopping to smell the roses, priceless.

Kelly: Where did you get that?

Marcie: How do you live with yourself, Mr. Manning?  Publishing trash like this about "The Killing Club" killer?  Don't you realize that you're only encouraging him, writing stuff like this?

Todd: You know, if you got a problem, why don't you write a letter to the editor?

Kelly: Come on.

Natalie: Hey.  Happy to see me?

Michael: Look, if you want to talk about John, I'll take a pass.

Natalie: Relax.  I'm unarmed.  I read that article.  Marcie must be pretty upset.

Michael: Yeah, yeah, about that and everything else.  You know, I offer to help her and all she does is turn me down.

Natalie: And then I show up and make a perfect end to your day.

Michael: Yeah.

Natalie: Well, if it makes you feel any better, you helped me.

Michael: Really?

Natalie: Mm-hmm.

Michael: How?

Natalie: Well, it was your nagging little voice that stopped me from making a complete fool out of myself with your brother.

Lisa: Henry, sometimes you say some of the most stupid things I've --

John: It's ok. It's one man's opinion.

Henry: I think a lot of people would question you two dating.

Evangeline: Why, Henry?

Henry: Well, besides whatever other problems you two face, John's a cop.  You're a defense attorney, mostly criminal cases.  Bad idea in a small town.

Evangeline: Well, not in Llanview, ok?  And as far as the other problems you're talking about -- didn't you have a white girlfriend in high school?

Henry: Yeah.  It didn't last long.

Evangeline: Wonder why.  I'm so sorry.  John, I'm so sorry.

John: It's ok.

Lisa: Ugh -- sometimes I could just strangle Henry.  Can I borrow her for just one minute?

John: By all means.

Evangeline: You sure you're ok?

John: Go.

Clay: Like I said, you're one lucky man.  My niece is a very special woman.

John: I couldn't agree more.

Lisa: Cookie, don't mind Henry or Clay.  I think John is a fine man.

Evangeline: Thank you.  Mom, he is.  John is wonderful.

Lisa: So he loves you the way you deserve to be loved?  Cookie?

Evangeline: Of course he does.

Lisa: Honey, what is it?

Evangeline: Nothing.  Nothing.  Things are really good between the two of us.  At least they were before tonight.

Lisa: Well, I think he handles himself quite well.

Evangeline: Yeah, that's because John is a really good guy, mom.

Lisa: Sweetheart, as long as my baby is in love with a man who loves her back, that is all I care about.  Baby, what aren't you telling me?

Evangeline: Can we just drop this, please?

Lisa: No, no.  I am not going to get off of this.

Evangeline: Ok.  John loves me.  He does.  I believe that he does.  He just hasn't been able to say the words yet.

Rex: Were you really going to take off?

Jen: Pretty stupid, huh?

Rex: Hey, it was my idea in the first place, remember?  But, yes, it would have been stupid, because this time it would have been without me.  Just don't worry, Jen.  I got your back.  Colson's going to have to go through me to get to you.

Daniel: I can't believe this.  While we were on our honeymoon, Bo didn't even try to gather more evidence against Jen.

Nora: Maybe because there's no more evidence to gather.  Daniel, riley came over to the house.  He was very upset.  He's convinced that you're obsessed with sending Jen to prison.  And frankly, I'm beginning to agree with him.  I think you want to arrest Jen whether she's guilty or not.

Daniel: I am sick and tired of you second-guessing my every move.  Now, I don't answer to you.  I don't answer to anyone.

Kelly: Oh, you shouldn't have blown off Marcie Walsh like that.

Todd: Why not?

Kelly: Because she's coming back.

Marcie: I have news for you, Mr. Manning, real news about "The Killing Club" murders.

Todd: Yeah?  What?

Marcie: "What"?  I'll tell you what!  If you keep writing about them in this sleazy little piece of garbage you call a newspaper, well, then if someone else dies, it's going to be on your head!

Natalie: So you must be pretty worried about Marcie, huh?  Well, I hope they find that maniac before he kills someone else.

Michael: Yeah, me, too.  You know, I'm going to feel a lot better when John puts this maniac away.  I'm sorry, that was my fault.  I brought him up this time.

Natalie: That's ok.  One point for your side.

Michael: You know, I want to thank you for not saying anything to John about, you know, what we talked about.

Natalie: Oh, right, about John being bothered about me seeing Ron Walsh?

Michael: Right.

Natalie: Well, the timing was bad.  Besides, I really didn't feel like hearing any more of your insults about my character.

Michael: You know, I'm sure that you are a wonderful person.

Natalie: Gee, thanks, Michael.

Michael: That was kind of rude.  I'm sorry.

Natalie: It's ok.  Actually, I'm more curious about how things are going with Evangeline's family.

Michael: Well, I got to tell you, I'm pretty sure they're nothing like our family.  Come to think of it, I don't think any family is like the Mc Bains.

Lisa: John can't say he loves you?

Evangeline: The words, mom.  The words.  He just can't say the words, but it's there.  It's there and it's good in every other way.  I don't need the words.

Lisa: I am not done with this, Cookie.

Clay: I know I was a little hard on your man.  But, Evangeline, I made your father a promise years ago that I would always look out for you, and that's all I'm doing.

Evangeline: Looking out for me?  Is that what you call this?

Clay: Of course.

Evangeline: Imagine the situation reversed, and someone in John's family treated me the way you guys have been treating him.  I wonder what you'd call it then.

Clay: I just want somebody that's worthy of you.  I mean, seeing Dennis today really drove that point home for me.

Evangeline: Dennis?  Uncle Clay, Dennis is -- is smug and he's boring.  I mean, how impressed with oneself can one be?  No, no, he's not for me.  John is it.  He makes me laugh, and he keeps me on my toes.

Clay: I'm sure he does.  He's just not who the family imagined you would end up with.

Evangeline: To be honest, John isn't really the kind of guy I ever thought I'd end up with either.

>> On the next "One Life to Live" --

Duke: If he is in trouble, the family could lose everything.

Antonio: There's something different about you.

Michael: What if you don't end up with John?  What then?

Clay: She told me about the kind of man she expected to marry someday.

John: That ain't exactly me.

Renee: I could kill him!

Todd: Why don't you tell me where Asa is, and I'll solve the problem for both of us? .
