One Life to Live Transcript Monday 5/2/05
Proofread by Brandi
Todd: Yeah, Jack just needed some water. He's back in bed and lights out.
Blair: Really? And what about Jack's daddy? Is he ready for lights out, too?
Todd: He was ready hours ago.
Blair: Really? Todd, I love the way you smell.
Todd: See, this feels good, just holding you like this.
Blair: Yeah. Just thinking about what you said before, about me not being ready to make love. But, I was thinking that maybe if we just, you know, start gently, with a little bit of this --
Rex: It's even sweeter than I remembered.
Jen: Rex --
Rex: And things are only going to get better. You'll see.
Jen: Thank you for everything you've done for me. But I just really --
Rex: Hey, listen, I know -- I know that you're confused and scared.
Jen: I just really don't think that I should get involved with anybody right now.
Rex: That's cool. No strings or expectations.
Rex: Except maybe one.
Jen: What's that?
Rex: I expect you to know that you can count on me, no matter what.
Marcie: You know, I mean, if it makes you feel any better, I mean, I know what you're going through. Michael and I -- we don't seem to be making much progress lately either.
Riley: Yeah, well, at least you don't have Rex around screwing things up for you.
Marcie: Yes, that is true. He's not any good for her, is he?
Riley: Yeah, tell her that.
Marcie: I have. Ok, and I will again and again and again if I have to. But, right now, Riley, I -- I'm a little bit more concerned about you. This isn't what you need right now. You know that, right? This is poison, the same as it was for al.
Riley: Well, you know what? Without Jen, it doesn't really matter anymore.
Marcie: That's not true, Riley. You have your friends, you have your family, you have your music. You have so much. You just -- look, you have to find a way, right, to start a new life for yourself without Jen. I'm still trying to make a life for myself without Al. So how can I possibly have one with Michael?
Michael: So, where do two lovesick souls who can't stand each other go from here?
Natalie: I vote the diner. Oh, I just felt a drop.
Michael: No, you didn't.
Natalie: Oh, yeah, I did. Oh, hey, there's another one. Let's -- let's go.
Michael: What, what?
Natalie: Before it starts pouring on us.
Michael: What, you don't like rain?
Natalie: Ok, I like rain, but, you know, in through a window? Roxy always said I'd catch my death of cold, and we couldn't afford the doctor bills.
Michael: Well, listen, let me as a doctor dispel that myth for you. The rain cannot cause a cold.
Natalie: I'm going in anyway.
Michael: What, are you afraid of a little rain?
Natalie: No --
Natalie: Because I'm not afraid of anything.
Michael: Well, prove it.
John: Hey, what's up?
Evangeline: What you just said. Do you remember what you just said?
John: Sorry. I guess I must've fallen asleep. What did I say?
Evangeline: You said, "I love you."
John: I -- I guess I must have been dreaming.
Evangeline: Must have been. Was it a good dream?
John: I don't know. It's not coming back to me.
John: Hey. I'm sorry.
Evangeline: Don't worry about it. It's no big deal, really. I -- I just didn't know if you were asleep or if you were resting your eyes or what, and then all of a sudden you blurt out, "I love you."
John: I wish I could tell you what I was dreaming about.
Evangeline: I wish you could say you were dreaming about me.
John: I'm sure I was. Hey, you want to talk?
Evangeline: Well, that's a first. Yeah. Well, whatever's been off between us, I guess we should make sure we dealt with that.
Evangeline: So, meeting my family -- is that what it is, or is there something else I should be worried about?
Natalie: Ugh. You realize we're getting soaked here?
Michael: Who cares?
Natalie: Obviously not you.
Michael: Who are you trying to impress, tough guy?
Natalie: Not you. I've already embarrassed myself in front of your brother.
Michael: Who cares about that? God, doesn't the rain feel great?
Natalie: Feels wet.
Michael: Yes, it does! It feels wet!
Michael: You know what my mom used to say about the rain? She used to say that this was God's way of giving Atlantic City a bath.
Natalie: Yeah, well, Roxy used to say that it was god's way of keeping all the tourists out of the good blackjack tables.
Natalie: Ok, thunder -- can't deal with.
Michael: Oh, good. Listen, you know, thunder happens because lightning, right -- it's hot. It cuts a hole through the air, and then when the air fills that gap back, it causes a shock wave. Nothing to be afraid of.
Natalie: God, you are such a geek.
Michael: I am a man of science, ok, and you know what? You -- you are looking at this -- this storm thing all wrong.
Natalie: Oh, really? How's that?
Michael: Hey, look. Right over there.
Michael: It's that fool you made of yourself a little while ago. The rain is washing it right away.
Natalie: Oh, really? Yeah?
Natalie: Well, look over there. That's your sanity running right down the drainpipe.
Michael: Yeah, well, good riddance!
Natalie: Oh, great -- oh, what are you doing? Michael!
Natalie: You're a geek!
Riley: I just thought that if I could talk to her, I could make her understand.
Marcie: Understand what, Riley?
Riley: Understand that I don't care if she killed Paul Cramer.
Marcie: You told Jen that you think she's guilty.
Riley: I don't care if she's guilty.
Marcie: Will you think about what you're saying here? Think about it for a second and tell me if you really think that she could kill anybody.
Riley: Look at the evidence. What -- how does that make Jen look?
Marcie: You know, maybe -- maybe you should just consider law school because you're starting to sound like your father.
Riley: Don't say that.
Marcie: Well, you know, because it must have been him who convinced you that Jen's guilty.
Paul: Hey, Teddy.
Paul: Your fly is open. I made you look, didn't I?
Daniel: You're not real.
Paul: Did you have a good time tonight? I bet it was a real blast, huh?
Nora: What -- oh, God.
Daniel: Sorry. Sorry I woke you.
Matthew: What time is it?
Nora: It's late. You're late. What are you -- where -- have you been with the governor this whole time? Daniel?
Nora: I haven't forgotten what time it is, buddy. You got to go upstairs to bed.
Matthew: All right. Good night.
Nora: I love you.
Matthew: I love you, too.
Nora: Daniel, what's going on? What is it? What happened with the governor? Did something happen?
Daniel: No. No, the meeting -- the meeting just ran late and -- I should have called you, Nora. I'm sorry. I -- on the way home, I was thinking -- this is wrong.
Daniel: Every time that governor Brooks calls, I leave when I should be home here with you. I don't want to lose you, Nora.
Nora: Ok, no, you're not going to lose me because of that.
Daniel: Well, you threatened a little while ago to end our marriage.
Nora: I know. I'm sorry about that. But, you know, you -- you start covering these little things, and I think that they're bigger things and -- we need to be really honest with each other, ok? Just honest.
Daniel: I love you, Nora.
Nora: I love you, too. You know, it wasn't -- it was just a little while ago that we took vows to spend the rest of our life together and if you want the job, you can be the lieutenant governor of the state, so I don't understand these doubts that you're having.
Daniel: Uh -- I don't know. I guess I'm just a -- a nervous newlywed. I --
Nora: Maybe. Or maybe it's because you can't seem to do the one thing that you really want to do, and that's close the Cramer case.
Daniel: Oh, I'll close the Cramer case and I'll prosecute whoever did it to the max.
Rex: What I said before, I meant it, you know? I'm going to be around, even though I know you still feel guilty about you-know-who.
Jen: You knew I was thinking about Riley?
Rex: What, is this a stupid face? You were living with the guy. You're not going to quit caring about him overnight, even though he would give you up in heartbeat to daddy the D.A.
Jen: I still felt bad seeing him in so much pain.
Rex: Aw. He's not feeling any by now, I guarantee it.
Jen: What does that mean?
Rex: He's probably in a bar right now, getting good and loaded.
Rex: Don't worry. He'll wake up with a headache, but he'll survive.
Jen: Riley wouldn't drink.
Rex: Sure, whatever. Now, what about our game? I was about to take all your hotels. Who you calling?
Jen: If Riley drinks because of me, I'll never be able to forgive myself.
Marcie: Riley, if I listened to everything my father told me, I never would've moved here to come to school. I would've turned my back on my brother Eric years ago, not to mention my writing. Dads don't always know what's best.
Riley: I know that and especially mine, all right, but what about all this evidence?
Marcie: Forget the evidence, Riley. I want you to think about who she is. I want you to think about the Jen that you know.
Riley: I am trying.
Marcie: Well, then try harder. I know that this is hard for you, ok, but I don't think it's helping that you're locking yourself in your apartment. Maybe you just need to stop blocking everyone out, shutting everyone down and out of your life.
Riley: You know what? You just gave me a great idea. Thank you.
Marcie: I did? Wait, wait, wait up. You think you're going to be able to come tonight, maybe?
Riley: Yeah, ok. Ok. Is Michael going to be there?
Marcie: I don't know.
Riley: I'll tell you what, I'll be there if Michael's there.
Marcie: Oh --
Todd: What's wrong?
Blair: I don't know. Why don't you tell me?
Blair: You know, Todd, these past few months we've fought our way through hell -- emotionally, physically.
Todd: Yeah, I know and we're going to get back to normal, aren't we? Which is amazing because we'd never been normal.
Blair: You know, when you first found me, I was a mess. I mean, I know that, and I -- I take full responsibility for that, but --
Todd: For what? What are you talking about?
Blair: You know what I'm talking about. We haven't had sex since I've been home.
Todd: I thought we decided that we were going to --
Blair: No, you decided, Todd. I'm fine and I'm ready, but for some reason you're pulling away from me. Why won't you tell me why?
Todd: Can we talk about this in the morning? Because I'm really beat.
Blair: No. Please, Todd, it can't wait. You know, with everything that we've been through, the odds were against us ever getting back together alive, but we did it.
Todd: Yeah. I couldn't let you go. I love you too much.
Blair: Why can't you make love to me?
Todd: It's not that.
Blair: Well, then what is it? I mean, you said you wanted us to get back to the way that we were before, before all this happened.
Todd: I do.
Blair: I can't marry you if you can't make love to me.
Todd: I can make love to you. Just not tonight, ok?
Blair: No, it's not ok, and you're not ok! Did something happen in that cabin? Something that you're not telling me?
Todd: You're not going to like it.
Blair: Oh, Todd, come on, I can handle it. What is it?
Todd: Ok. I'll tell you the truth.
Daniel: Well, I suppose if I'm going to be lieutenant governor, we better start looking for an apartment in Harrisburg.
Nora: Oh, so you're taking the job now, huh?
Daniel: Only if you're behind me.
Nora: You know I am. I just can't wait till it's a done deal. No more hush-hush, late-night meetings with the governor.
Daniel: Yeah, I hope not.
Nora: It'd be kind of fun to have our own little place out of town. You can slip away from the old fogies at capital buildings, come and have a little lunch with me. Maybe people will think we're having an affair, you're having an affair -- a mistress.
Daniel: That's not good.
Daniel: Damn. I'll get it. Hey, Riley, come on in.
Riley: Sorry to drop by without calling.
Nora: You never have to call.
Matthew: Riley, hey.
Matthew: I didn't know you were coming over.
Nora: You're supposed to be in bed.
Matthew: Can you stay for a game of the invasion etrangere?
Riley: Yeah, well, I might be able to stay a little bit longer than that if the offer to stay here is still open.
John: I don't want you to worry about us, worry about anything.
Evangeline: Then tell me what's on your mind.
John: At the funeral home, I overheard you talking to your uncle.
Evangeline: About what?
John: Me. You said I wasn't the type of man you thought you'd end up with.
Evangeline: John, you obviously didn't hear the whole conversation.
John: Didn't need to. I heard enough. I started thinking that, "hey, maybe she's right. Maybe I'm not the -- the right man for her to end up with."
Evangeline: I can't imagine how you could honestly believe that. Unless you've decided you don't want this and you're looking for an easy way out.
Michael: Cold. Cold. Cold.
Roxy: You two look like you've been through a monsoon or something.
Natalie: Oh, don't even ask.
Michael: Yeah, it was something like that. Listen, I got some dry scrubs up in my room. I'll be right back.
Natalie: Thank you very much, yeah.
Michael: No problem.
Natalie: Oh --
Roxy: Ok, baby. Spill.
Roxy: "What?" You playing dumb with me? You and the doc.
Natalie: He -- no, it's -- no, nothing like that! He's just -- he was making me feel better, that's all.
Roxy: How much better?
Natalie: You know, I thought you wanted me to be with John.
Roxy: Honey, you know, you got to keep your opticals open.
Natalie: Ahem. Oh, good. Thank you.
Michael: Here you go. Not a problem.
Michael: Oh, please don't remind me I'm on call at the hospital.
Michael: Yeah, it's the hospital. I got to go.
Natalie: Well, an occupational hazard.
Michael: Yeah, more like a way of life. But --
Natalie: Oh, what are you --
Michael: Look, here we go! Now she's gorgeous! Here, we put this on top of there -- hey, sweetie. What's going on?
Marcie: Oh, I don't know. I was actually about to ask you the same question.
Matthew: Riley can totally move in with us, right, mom?
Riley: I'm sorry to put you on the spot.
Daniel: What changed your mind, son?
Riley: A friend. A friend who told me I probably shouldn't be alone so much right now.
Nora: Sounds like a smart friend.
Riley: But it's just temporary. I promise I will not be here when you're celebrating your first-year anniversary.
Nora: Riley, you are more than welcome to stay here for as long as you like.
Riley: Thank you.
Daniel: It'll be good to have you here, son.
Riley: I appreciate this, dad. Thank you.
Daniel: Um -- that's governor Brooks. I got to take this, ok?
Paul: So, Teddy, looks like you're going to have plenty of father-and-son bonding time, not to mention another pair of prying eyes around here.
Daniel: Shut up.
Paul: Better get it together, man, or you're going to go down.
Daniel: Listen, I -- I got to get to the office. I'm sorry.
Nora: What? Now?
Daniel: Yeah, it was a motion that I forgot to file. I got to do it tonight.
Nora: Well, when are you going to be back?
Daniel: Soon. Soon, soon, I promise.
Nora: Well --
Riley: Dad? Thanks again.
Daniel: No problem, son.
Todd: My whole life I've just done whatever I wanted, never thought about the consequences. I did it with Marty at the frat house, and I -- I did it with you when I told you Jack was dead. And I've done it again, bringing Margaret into our lives.
Blair: Well, Margaret was a psychopath. You couldn't --
Todd: No, that's not the point. The point is that I've always been selfish. I kept being selfish, even -- even after I convinced you that I had changed. And I'm sitting up there in that -- in that cabin, you know, for weeks. And when I finally make it home, I think you're dead. And the only thing I can think of is that I wish it was me.
Blair: Don't say that, Todd.
Todd: Blair, I thought I'd lost you, and I didn't change. If that didn't change me, what will? You tell me. How can I have sex with you if I'm still the same person? How can I have sex with you if I'm my father? That's who I am. I am still a lying, selfish monster, and I always will be.
John: If I didn't want to be with you, I wouldn't be with you. I never took the easy way out of anything in my life. You should know that.
Evangeline: Yeah, I should.
John: Look, it's just seeing you with your family and all the plans they have for you, I -- I guess I'd never seen the big picture before.
Evangeline: And what is the big picture?
John: It got me wondering. What is someone like you doing in Llanview with someone like me? You should be in Washington. You should be working for the Attorney General, not small-timing it with some local cop going nowhere.
Evangeline: John, you got to be kidding me. All right, all right, let me ask you something.
Evangeline: When you imagined the ideal person, what was she like?
John: She was Caitlin.
Evangeline: Tell me about her.
John: I don't have the words to describe her. She was kind mostly. Quiet. Except when kids were around, then she sort of lit up. You know, she loved kids.
Evangeline: Well, you said she was a teacher, right?
John: Yeah, she was a teacher, a special-ed teacher.
Evangeline: Wow. You have to be incredibly patient to do that kind of work.
Evangeline: What else?
John: What else? She was just different from anyone I'd met.
Evangeline: And different from me.
John: Somewhat. You have some things in common -- strength, beauty.
Evangeline: But still different. John, the picture changed for both of us. But as long as we're happy, I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
John: I guess I never really thought of it that way.
Evangeline: Save my place.
Michael: Marcie, no. Listen, you got it all wrong, ok? Look, we were talking in Angel Square. We got caught in the rain. That's it.
Natalie: You think that I'm interested in him? Please. He was just giving me some dry clothes. No offense.
Roxy: Yo, Marcie, Natalie swore up and down the two of them are not hooking up.
Natalie: Thank you, Roxy.
Roxy: I'll be in the office.
Marcie: The reason I came by is because, well, we're having a meeting in the community center tonight. It's actually a memorial for Julie and Hudson, so --
Michael: Oh, sweetie, I'm sorry. Look, I can't go. I -- I'm on call at the hospital. That's why I was changing downstairs.
Marcie: Mm-hmm. Sure. Mm-hmm.
Natalie: Thank you for the scrubs again.
Michael: Yeah. Listen, anytime, all right? You -- I will talk to you later.
Natalie: So, a memorial service? That's -- that's really nice.
Marcie: You know, Natalie, I realize that I don't know you well, but I've seen what your friendship with John has done to his relationship with Evangeline, and I'll be damned if I let you come between Michael and me.
Natalie: What did I do to John and Evangeline?
Marcie: Oh, come on, Natalie. You're always trying to get closer to John, inch by inch.
Natalie: I am so out of here.
Marcie: I'm glad to see that you're feeling better.
Natalie: Excuse me?
Marcie: Didn't you cancel on my brother Ron tonight because you weren't feeling -- no, you were tired.
Natalie: I was tired.
Marcie: Oh, but somehow, miraculously, you managed to get a second wind to run right into Michael, though.
Natalie: Where is all this coming from?
Marcie: Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about, and don't act like you don't what you're doing. Maybe John and Evangeline -- maybe they're none of my business, but now you're messing with my brother.
Natalie: Ok, I think you need to back off.
Marcie: And on top of that -- on top of that, Natalie, now you're going after Michael. Ok, I may not be going out with Michael anymore, we may be broken up, but there's a damn good chance that we actually might make it back to each other.
Natalie: Ok, good, go for it.
Marcie: Oh, I will. So back off, leave him alone, and you better stay out of my way!
Jen: Riley's not home and he's not answering his cell. I wonder if I have Sheyne's number around here.
Rex: Come on! This is the guy who's calling you a killer. Is he really worth all this?
Jen: Shut up. You don't know what you're talking about.
Rex: That's me. Yeah, go.
Bo: It's Bo Buchanan.
Rex: Hey. Long time no see. Where you been anyway?
Bo: Been following up on our friend Ted.
Rex: Yeah? And?
Bo: How soon can you get down to the docks? I'm at pier 17.
Rex: On my way.
Jen: Nora, hi. It's Jen.
Nora: Oh, hey. How are you doing?
Jen: I'm ok, but I'm not so sure about Riley. He was here earlier and things got kind of intense, and he was upset when he left. I'm just kind of hoping that maybe you can call and check up on him.
Nora: Well, actually, he's here. He's upstairs playing a video game with Matthew.
Jen: Thank God.
Nora: Uh -- I think Riley's going to be staying with Daniel and me for a little while.
Jen: Good. Good, that's good. I'm glad he's not going to be alone.
Nora: Can I give him a message for you?
Jen: No, no. Just don't even tell him that I called, ok?
Nora: Whatever you say.
Jen: I just don't want to get back into it tonight. Marcie and I have this thing and I just want to be able to be up for it.
Nora: Ok. I'll see you.
Jen: Thanks, Nora. I'll talk to you later.
Rex: Kiss me.
Jen: Not now.
Rex: Well, you might really want to lay one on me when I get back.
Jen: Where are you going?
Rex: To find out who Ted is and get you cleared.
Jen: You are? How?
Rex: I'll fill you in when I'm done.
Jen: Wait a minute. You're not doing anything dangerous, are you?
Rex: Glad you care. Be back soon.
Jen: "Dear Riley --"
Nora: Matthew in bed?
Riley: With much protest, yes. Was that dad on the phone?
Nora: Uh -- no. Just a friend.
Riley: Ok, well, I'm going to head to the community center. I promised Marcie.
Nora: You're going to see Marcie?
Nora: Riley -- I should get you some keys.
Riley: Thanks. See you later.
Daniel: Hey, doc.
Medical examiner: Colson. What brings you down my way?
Daniel: I'm following up a lead on the Paul Cramer case. I need to look at everything you have on file. And, doc, if we could just keep this between us?
Medical examiner: Say no more.
Evangeline: You know, when Dennis walked into that funeral home, it all came back to me -- all the plans we made, all the dreams we shared.
John: How'd that feel?
Evangeline: Weird. Oddly familiar and then it all came rushing back.
John: What's that?
Evangeline: I wasn't happy when I was with Dennis, not the way I am with you. So neither one of us ended up with the person we imagined. So what? How many people do?
John: Not many, I guess.
Evangeline: Yeah. You know, and as for that dream you had, it doesn't even matter.
John: You sure?
Evangeline: I'd rather be a part of your reality.
John: I like that.
Natalie: Marcie, I am not in your way. I don't know why you're upset. You have no reason to be. You were right about one thing.
Marcie: See, I knew it.
Natalie: I'm talking about John. Michael warned me not to, but I -- I told John that I wanted more than friendship.
Marcie: What? You did what?
Marcie: I have to admit that took guts.
Natalie: Yeah, well, he turned me down flat.
Natalie: And Michael was kind enough not to say, "I told you so."
Marcie: Well, Michael's really not the kind of guy to kick you when you're down.
Natalie: No and he also said he understood why I did it. And he said that he knows how it feels when you love someone so much that you can't think about anything else. You know why?
Natalie: Because that's how he feels about you.
Marcie: Natalie, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. You must think I'm the biggest jerk. I'm sorry I blew up at you. I'm --
Natalie: Just a girl who's in love.
Marcie: I guess I am.
Blair: I know you believe that you haven't changed, but you have.
Todd: I wish it were true.
Blair: Even if you do go back to being the old Todd, the fact that you see it proves that you've changed. And all that stuff that you said to me before? It is in the past, Todd. You told me things that I already know, so there.
Todd: I just want to be worthy of you.
Blair: Oh, yeah, worthy of me? You are. But if you need some time to realize that, you take all the time that you need. As long as we're together.
Todd: I'm not going anywhere.
Blair: You listen to me. Look at me. Margaret may have thought that she could destroy us. But she can't, and she didn't.
Blair: You sure that's all that's bothering you?
Todd: Yeah, I'm sure.
Margaret's voice: This is our brand-new baby book, sweetheart.
Margaret's voice: And these are the bullets that mommy took out of daddy.
Rex: Why'd you want to meet down here?
Bo: Because I don't want to meet anywhere that Ted might hear us.
Rex: So, you found out something?
Bo: Yeah, quite a few things.
Rex: So who is he? Who really killed Paul Cramer?
Medical examiner: That's pretty much everything on Cramer.
Daniel: Great, great. Thanks, doc.
Paul: What are you up to, Ted?
Daniel: I -- I don't see the toxicology report in here.
Medical examiner: Oh, it's filed at the lab. It was negative.
Paul: Negative? Hmm, hmm. What do you need that for, Ted?
Daniel: I am afraid I'm going to have to look at everything.
Medical examiner: I'll get you a copy.
Paul: What are you looking for, Ted? Well, you better hurry up, Teddy, or your plan for Jen is going to be as dead as I am.
>> On the next "One Life to Live" --
Dorian: I had nothing to do with embezzling those funds.
Kevin: You have something to say, David?
Paul: You're going to take care of Jen. You're going to frame her.
Evangeline: He told me all about what happened, Natalie. How humiliating.
