Proofread by Kathy
Dorian: I'll get it. La Boulaie. No, I do not want to subscribe to "Today's Homemaker," and take me off your calling list! Thank you.
Adriana: You were hoping that was David, weren't you?
Dorian: No, I was not. Excuse m oh, grab the fruit bowl, will you, please?
Adriana: I don't believe you. Mom, I hate seeing you this way.
Dorian: Seeing me what way?
Adriana: Running to the phone every time it rings, staying at home waiting for someone to show up.
Dorian: That is ridiculous.
Adriana: Is it?
Dorian: Yes, it is. Now please note that I am making our salad with iceberg lettuce -- a big no-no with me, but you love it.
Adriana: Mom, why can't you admit that even running my life and Blair's and Kelly’s isn't going to fill the void that David left?
Dorian: That is so absurd. I'm completely over David.
Adriana: Okay. Prove it.
David: Wonder if this thing is pre- or post-cost club. Oh, this is the real deal. This thing is worth a fortune.
David: You know what? You really shouldn't sneak up on people like that. You're going to give them a heart attack!
Viki: What is with you and heart attacks?
David: I'm sorry. Poor choice of words.
Viki: David -- you know, it's kind of funny, but Dorian actually mentioned to me that I should keep an eye on my valuables when you are around.
David: Singing my praises, was she?
Viki: What is the matter, David? Is the carriage house not enough for you?
David: Au contraire, it's plenty.
Viki: Then what are you doing here? It's too early for popcorn and a movie, and I'm not in any mood for that.
David: We did have a few good laughs, though, didn't we?
Viki: David, you are terribly amusing, but you've overstayed your welcome.
David: You know, up until recently, I never felt welcomed by you.
Viki: I think you know that I have not been feeling well recently, right?
Viki: Okay, I have a virus.
David: Is it contagious?
Viki: And the doctors have prescribed absolute peace and quiet. And that is something you are not capable of granting me.
David: Oh, get it. I'm not dense. I know when I'm not wanted. This is one of those times, right?
Viki: Thank you.
David: Well, I'll be leaving now.
Viki: Oh, good.
David: But first, I need your help.
Marcie: Thanks for helping. I didn't want Lindsay or will to have to deal with this, you know?
Mark: Of course, I'm glad to help. Besides, I don't really want to be alone tonight.
Marcie: I understand.
Marcie: So it must have been tough, you know, seeing Daniel with Nora?
Mark: You have no idea.
Marcie: You know, you're going to have to deal with it sooner or later. They're married.
Mark: They're living a lie.
Marcie: Well, if you think your affair with Daniel is going to have a happy ending, so are you.
Matthew: I've got to find something upstairs.
Nora: I worry about him.
Daniel: Well, he seems all right, considering.
Nora: He's trying to be brave. He's devastated by Jen's death. I just want him to cry or be angry or something.
Daniel: And he will, he will - it'll take some time, that's all.
Nora: In time, I know. What am I supposed to tell him? How much is he supposed to know? Is he supposed to -- I mean, should he see something like this? Daniel? What's wrong? Daniel, what is it?
Daniel: It's my fault.
John: Is Bo in?
Natalie: No, he's not there, but he should be back soon.
John: I’ll wait.
Natalie: John’s waiting for you in your office.
Rex: Yeah, thanks.
John: Uh-uh. I need to talk to you, Bo.
Bo: Okay. You can talk in front of Balsom.
John: It's about Jen's autopsy.
Bo: Okay, go on.
John: Jen didn't commit suicide. She was murdered; probably by the same person that killed Cramer.
Rex: I knew it! And now we know who it was!
Bo: All right, let's not get ahead of ourselves.
John: You want to fill me in?
Bo: We think that we might have figured out who Ted is. It's not a cop like we thought, but the guy's [words missing] D.A., Daniel Colson.
Marcie: If you try to break up Daniel and Nora’s marriage, the likeliest person to get hurt is you. Just end it. It's for your own good.
Mark: I can't just turn of my feelings.
Marcie: I know. Believe me, I know.
Michael: Hey. How you doing? Listen, I really need to talk to you.
Marcie: I'm not sure that I want to talk to you.
Mark: I think I'll take this food out to the car.
Michael: It’s really important.
Marcie: Oh, yeah, more important than Jen's memorial service? How could you just get [words missing]?
Michael: Because what I had to do was for Jen. It was for her family. It was for you.
Ma: You know, I don't understand you, okay?
Michael: Look, Jen didn't kill herself. She was murdered
Marcie: How do you know that?
Michael: Because John had me do a second autopsy, [words missing] - died from suffocation.
Marcie: So she -- she didn’t commit suicide?
Michael: No. No. And John figures that whoever killed Jen also killed Paul Cramer.
Nora: Daniel, you have to stop saying that.
[Part of transcript missing]
Daniel: Starting with Paul Cramer.
Nora: I think people who commit murder -- it's a huge toll that's exacted on their lives, you know? They live forever fearful of being caught; they're consumed by guilt.
Nora: Excuse me. Hello? It's a reporter. They want to talk to the new Lieutenant Governor.
Daniel: It's not official until I'm sworn in.
Nora: Word's obviously gotten out. You want to talk to them or not?
Daniel: Yeah, yeah, I'll take it.
Nora: Daniel -- I just want you to know that tomorrow you're going to be made the Lieutenant Governor, and I am proud of you. I just wish it hadn't come with such a huge price tag.
Natalie: Llanview Police Department.
Evangeline: Hi, is John McBain in?
Evangeline: Look, I tried to reach him on his line and he didn't answer.
Natalie: Yes, he's in a meeting with Bo and they're not accepting calls right now. Would you like to leave a message?
Evangeline: No. I will just check in with him later.
Natalie: Okay, bye.
Bo: It was right there on his passport -- "Theodore Daniel Colson."
Rex: Paul was blackmailing him, so he killed Paul. Then he paid me to plant the gun in Dorian’s office. Jen must've found out who he was. That's why he killed her, too.
Bo: Do you mind stepping outside?
Rex: Yes, I'd mind!
Bo: I will fill you in as soon as I can. And in the meantime, there's not a word of this leaves this office. Is that understood? Man.
John: So what evidence do we have on Colson?
John: You know, busting the next Lieutenant Governor's not going to be pretty.
Bo: Yeah, I know, that occurred to me, but all the pieces are coming together right now and it all points to Colson.
John: Tell me about the pieces.
Bo: He claimed to have had some knowledge of some honchos at the Federal Reserve, but he couldn't make any connection between that bank account and Cramer. Now, I did it myself and it took me about 20 minutes. He's had access to every piece of evidence. He's the one that stumbled on to Jen's printer. He knew about Jen and Rex. He knew that it'd be very easy to manipulate Rex into hiding that gun. And, you know, framing Jen -- that'd be easy, too. Want more?
John: You got more?
Bo: It's circumstantial, but it's enough to finger Daniel Colson for murder.
Viki: David, what more do you want from me? Is it not enough that I got Dorian to come over here to my home, praying that she would take you back to La Boulaie with her? Oh, my God, there is nothing I want more on this earth than for you and Dorian to get back together!
David: I'm not getting back together with Dorian. I'm moving on. As a matter of fact, this is an arena in which you can help me. I would not be opposed to you introducing me to one of the rich, beautiful, not too smart, rich, powerful, and, did I mention, rich women that you might know.
Viki: Okay, I do not believe for an instant that you are really seriously moving on, okay, and secondly, I am not a matchmaker. You are perfectly capable of finding your own rich ladies.
David: Oh, I don't know. I've been with Dorian an awful long time. My suave, debonair hinges might be a little rusty.
Viki: Then I would recommend rust remover.
David: Say, how did you and that Ben hook up?
Viki: "Hook up"? I would prefer to say that we fell in love. And to answer your question, it was quite by chance.
David: So, how did it happen?
Viki: Initially, we met because of a terrible accident. But then we came together, oddly enough, through a series of personal ads.
David: Personal ads?
David: You mean like, "D.M. Seeks S.F. with M.B.A. for G.T. and P.F."?
Viki: I don't have a clue what that means, so, no, not exactly.
David: Wait a second. This is a brilliant idea. Dorian was wrong. You are a genius!
Adriana: If David is a thing of the past, why don't you go out on a date? Or do you think you couldn't find someone?
Dorian: Oh, of course I could. Why do you want me out of the house? So you can be here alone with Duke?
Adriana: You know, for once, I wish you would take your mind off of my life and focus on your own. I'm thinking about you, Mom, only you. Now, if you think you're ready to move on --
Dorian: Of course I am.
Adriana: Okay. Then why don't you go and meet someone nice? I mean, even if you decide that you're not ready to move on, it'll at least make David a little jealous.
Dorian: Oh, Adriana, do you really think I would sink that low?
Dorian: You're right. Sure. I mean, what's the harm in a date or two?
Adriana: There you go.
Dorian: Hmm. But finding the right man -- that's the problem.
Adriana: I got an idea about that, too.
Michael: Marcie? You got to promise me you're not going to say anything about the autopsy.
Marcie: No, no, of course not. I just -- I don't know how I'm supposed to react to any of this anymore, Michael.
Michael: Yeah. I don't know. Jen didn't kill herself. That should be -- that should be some consolation.
Marcie: Consolation? You know, I keep thinking about Jen and I keep thinking about what it must have been like for her. She must've been just terrified.
Michael: Yeah. John figures that she found out who it was that was framing her for Paul's murder.
Marcie: It's just terrible. It's sad.
Marcie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry I got mad at you. I -- you know, I just had no clue where you were going when you got up to leave, and I was just -- I was feeling alone and I -- no, no, no, no. No.
Michael: I -- I don't understand, Marcie. You know, you tell me that you're angry with me, you're upset because I'm not there for you, and then when I reach out for you, you pull away. I don't understand. I thought that we were friends.
Marcie: We can't be friends!
Michael: Why not?
Marcie: Because everyone who gets close to me dies!
Natalie: Do you want to talk about it?
Natalie: I don't mean what's going on in Bo’s office.
Natalie: Rex, I've been through it. I think I know how you feel.
Rex: Maybe. Yeah, I guess you do.
Natalie: I know how much you're hurting. And that hurt's not going to go away for a long time. But don't do what I did. Don't push away the people that love you.
Bo: I never liked Colson. Right from the start, I had him pegged as a fraud and an opportunist. But I never thought was a killer.
John: Pieces seem to fit. We got a motive?
Bo: Yeah, same motive -- blackmail.
John: What did Cramer have on Colson?
Bo: A secret affair.
John: Colson was cheating on Nora? Wait a minute. Colson and Nora -- they weren't even engaged when Cramer was killed. What kind of affair would be worth killing over?
Mark: Excuse me. Is the Commissioner in?
Dorian: Oh, hold it. I'm not sure I'm so sold on this.
Adriana: Mom, this is how people meet nowadays. You can't deny it's better than a singles bar.
Dorian: No, a singles bar would not be an option for me.
Adriana: Then trust me. Okay, look, this website is specifically made for upscale professionals.
Dorian: And how do you know about it?
Adriana: An article in last month's "Craze." Okay, now we need to come up with a profile and a personal I.D.
Dorian: I need a personal I.D.?
Dorian: Um -- why?
Adriana: Well, because you can't go by "Dorian Lord." You need something that's short and catchy, something that's you.
Dorian: Oh. "Elegant intellectual."
Adriana: Right idea, but maybe something a little more subtle.
Adriana: Like "Lady in waiting."
Dorian: Oh, no. Sounds too needy.
Adriana: "Love bunny"?
Dorian: Too sleazy.
Adriana: "Hard up."
Dorian: Hey, stop that!
Adriana: Okay, I'm kidding, I'm kidding. How about -- "One perfect rose"?
Dorian: It has elegance, grace. It's perfect. It's me.
Dorian: "One perfect rose," great.
Adriana: Okay, physical description, age?
Dorian: Hmm. Let's just say "Remarkable for my age, fit, 5'4"."
Adriana: Okay, okay. Ideal evening?
Dorian: Ah. "An evening spent in front of one of my fireplaces, drinking good champagne and eating fine caviar."
Adriana: Great. Ideal man?
Dorian: Ooh. "He should be clever, funny, strong, sometimes a challenge, tall -- definitely tall, over six feet -- dark hair, dark eyes, and a splendid physique."
David: Ah, "match-a-mate." Ding, ding, ding. That sounds good. Okay. Oh, I need a user I.D. "Irresistible Adonis." No, that's too on the nose. "Sex pilot." Nah, she'd probably just want to use me. "Sensitive Latin lover." Hmm, that's a good one. Unfortunately, I'm not sensitive. Let's see, what do I want in an ideal mate? "I'm looking for a woman who is funny and impulsive." So if that's what I'm looking for, then I need to be -- "Powerful, yet romantic." Oh, I've got it -- "King of hearts." Okay. Ideal date?
Viki: Shall I give Jessica a message from you?
Evangeline: I just wanted to go over a few things in Antonio’s custody hearing. She may get recalled.
Viki: How is it going?
Evangeline: So far so good, actually. There's still more testimony to be heard, but at this point, things look really positive for Antonio.
Viki: Well, he's got an excellent lawyer.
Evangeline: That's nice of you to say.
Viki: No, you did a marvelous job when you were defending Natalie on the Paul Cramer murder case.
Evangeline: Thank you. And speaking of Natalie, do you have any idea when she'll be back from work? I'd like to talk to her.
Natalie: The commissioner's in a meeting right now. I'm not sure when he's going to be finished. Is there something I can help you with?
Mark: Yeah, I was just taking some things by the community center and I passed by the garden. Made me think of Jen. You know, she helped plan it. She really loved that place.
Natalie: Yeah, it's going to be beautiful.
Mark: Yeah. Well, I was thinking I might ask Mr. Buchanan if we could officially name it after her? I know those things, you know, have to go through proper channels and --
Natalie: Yeah, you know, I'll look into it.
Rex: I remember Jen talking about how the flowers would be in full bloom at the beginning of the summer. She couldn't wait to see it.
Bo: Has anyone tracked down the medical examiner? I'll hold. Yeah, I went down there to check on the autopsy. Colson was in with the M.E.
John: You think he had him file a false report?
Bo: Yeah, or he forged it himself. Yeah? Oh, damn it. All right. Thank you. The medical examiner took an unexpected vacation. How curious is that?
John: Very curious. I think I'm going to track him down.
Bo: Good. You got to keep a low profile, though, John.
John: Colson won't have any idea that we're on to him.
Bo: I want this case kept airtight.
John: Finding the girlfriend would be helpful.
Bo: It sure wouldn't hurt. You know, I wish we could pull some prints off that bloody bandana that we found in Jen's car.
John: Well, Colson's not real smart, but he's smart enough not to leave prints.
Bo: How did he get some of Cramer’s blood?
John: They had a sample down in the morgue.
Bo: Check into that, all right?
John: You got it.
Bo: Yeah, one second.
John: What is it?
Bo: This is a note that Balsom got with the money and the murder weapon. You see that glitch --
Bo: Right there on the paper? It's from the printer. Check and see what kind of printer Colson uses, okay?
Matthew: I found my poem about Jen.
Nora: You wrote a poem about Jen?
Matthew: Yeah, a while ago. I meant to give it to her, but it printed out funny and I forgot.
Nora: I'm sure it's just fine.
Matthew: Want to read it?
Nora: I'd love to.
Marcie: I'm cursed. I mean, everyone who gets close to me, they die -- Al, Julie, Hudson, Jen.
Michael: Al died of liver failure.
Marcie: Al died from a Staph infection that he caught from me. Why couldn't it have been me instead of him?
Michael: Because it doesn't work that way.
Marcie: Well, then how does it work? Michael, how does it work? I mean, if I had just -- if I had just been there with Jen in the garage --
Michael: Yeah, then both of you would be dead. Marcie, this is not your fault. You have to believe that.
Marcie: So what am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to accept the fact that bad things happen and that there's nothing that I can do about it? That people who are close to me die and they die young? Am I supposed to accept that, Michael? I can't accept it! I can't do this! I can't go through this again! I can't lose someone else that I love!
Michael: So what are you going to do, Marce? You going to never love anybody again for the rest of your life? Is that how you're going to live your life?
Viki: Natalie, honey, you're home early.
Natalie: Well, Gail came back to work, and I wanted to check up and see how you were feeling. What are you doing here?
Viki: Well, thank you so much for asking. I'm feeling much better. But my stress meter just went up a tick, so excuse me.
Evangeline: We need to talk -- about John.
Rex: Am I right? Daniel Colson's the guy?
Bo: That's the consensus.
Rex: Yeah, I'm going to kill that son of a --
Bo: No, you're not going to do anything. We're trying to get more information right now. All you're going to do is I want you to stay here and chill out.
Rex: Are we going to arrest him?
Rex: Are you going to arrest him?
John: We're going to get him, all right, but we have to do it right.
Rex: Okay, I can do it right.
Bo: No, you can't, Balsom! Go over there and sit on the couch! I'm going to go see Nora, all right? Hey! Sit like you've been a guest in somebody's office! This whole thing -- this is going to be hell f her. You know, in my gut, I knew that Colson was not one of the good guys.
John: I know.
Bo: All right, but --
John: Look, maybe it's going to be different this time. You got evidence.
Bo: Yeah. Yeah, but I don't know that she's going to accept it. She's hardheaded.
John: Colson's dangerous, Bo.
Bo: All right, I'm going to get her and Matthew away from him. But it's going to be tough for her to deal with the fact that her new husband is a cold-blooded killer.
Matthew: "My sister Jen is really pretty. My sister Jen is really nice. She makes me smile when she takes pictures. I make her scared when I show her mice. We do not live in the same house. She even has a different mother. We're family because of how we feel. I'm proud to be her little brother. If I had to rate my sister on a scale of one to 10, I'd probably give her 100. The greatest sister in the world is Jen."
Nora: That's beautiful. That is beautiful.
Matthew: Thanks. Do you think Riley would like it?
Daniel: Yeah, I -- I think he'd like that very much.
Nora: I'm going to call Rachel.
Daniel: Yeah, I understand.
Nora: I'll guarantee you that it's for you. I'll go use the other phone.
Daniel: All right.
Daniel: Hello? Yes, yes, Governor, the -- the phone is ringing off the hook. Yeah.
Daniel: Yeah, I think a meeting before the swearing-in would be a great idea, uh-huh. Yeah, I will. Yeah. Hey, thank you, thank you.
Nora: What is that?
Dorian: Well, what do I do now? Just wait for my knight in shining armor to come ring down the driveway?
Adriana: Well, first let's maybe send this out to some of the possible candidates.
Dorian: Oh. Okay.
Adriana: Here's one. "Tall, dark, handsome. Loves sports."
Dorian: No. No, he'd be glued to the television set, watching Neanderthals knock each other down instead of giving me his undivided attention.
Adriana: Okay. Hmm. Here. "Likes quiet nights, walks on the beach, simple pleasures."
Dorian: Uh-uh. Cheapskate.
Adriana: Okay, let's flush him. Oh, here's one. "Looking for a smart, funny, independent, strong-willed lady."
Adriana: "Ideal evening is taking a private jet to Paris for dinner at Le Cinq, then to Rome for dessert in the Piazza Navona, then spending the night in a penthouse suite for the view, but never getting around to seeing the view."
Dorian: Oh! Well, he's got expensive tastes.
Adriana: And his physical description is exactly what you wanted. Okay, here we go.
Dorian: No, no, no, no! Wait, wait.
Adriana: Uh -- too late.
Dorian: Too late? Oh, my. "King of hearts." Okay, King of hearts, your queen awaits.
David: That was fast. Who do we have here? Hmm. "Sitting in front of one of my fireplaces"? Well, well, well. She must have a very large house, or several metal trash cans. "I enjoy fine dining, champagne, and caviar." Hmm, me like. "I am funny, strong-willed, intuitive." Uh-oh. She sounds like she's smart. Well, let's give it a shot. Okay, "One perfect rose," fasten your seat belt. You're about to take a ride with the King of hearts.
Natalie: Why do we need to talk about John?
Evangeline: When I was representing you, we were able to put our feelings about John aside and work together.
Natalie: Your point is?
Evangeline: Did I do a good job for you?
Natalie: Yes, you did a great job.
Evangeline: Thank you. Now I'm in the middle of a custody case, you're getting settled in a new job, a new chapter in your life, and John is up to his ears in motives and evidence, details about the cases he's working.
Natalie: Right, obsessed.
Evangeline: Exactly. And he doesn't need to be distracted by petty things.
Natalie: Are you calling me petty?
Evangeline: That's not what I said at all.
Natalie: Well, it sounded exactly like what you said to me. And if you knew John at all, you would know that when he's working on a case, he doesn't get distracted by anything, and especially not petty things like me.
Evangeline: For future reference, Natalie, I do know John. If you could see straight, you would notice that I know John very well.
Natalie: Maybe not as well as you thought.
John: Take it.
Rex: I want to see Daniel Colson swinging from the end of a rope.
John: Unfortunately, we don't do that too much anymore.
Rex: He picked the ideal person to blame. Jen wasn't perfect, but she the most trusting girl I've ever known. I shouldn't have fought so hard to prove she was innocent.
John: You did what you thought was right.
Rex: So what if she had gone to prison. She'd still be alive.
John: We'll get Colson. We'll bury him. But we got to do it before someone else becomes a threat to him.
Daniel: You are not supposed to see this.
Nora: Well, what is it?
Daniel: It's a C.D. I -- I was going to leave this on your pillow when I spent my first night in Harrisburg. It's for you.
Nora: "When we're apart." I didn't even know you liked songs like this. I guess I -- I have a lot to learn about my new husband.
Daniel: Yeah, I guess you do.
Daniel: That's probably my car. The governor sent a driver. Wish me luck.
Nora: Good luck.
Daniel: I'll call you as soon as I can, okay? I love you, Nora.
Daniel: See you soon.
Nora: You, too.
Michael: I know you. I know how big your heart is and I know how much you care about people.
Marcie: Maybe that's the problem.
Michael: No, that's not a problem. It's who you are. And close friends and relationships, they're -- they're a wonderful gift. They make us happy, they help us enjoy life, and, yes, sometimes they end sooner than we would like them to. But I wouldn't give back even one of my relationships. I don't think you would, either.
Evangeline: I should've known better than to come here and think I could have a reasonable conversation with you about this.
Natalie: "A reasonable conversation"? You come to my house, insult me, and expect me to have a reasonable conversation with you?
Evangeline: I didn't come here to insult you, Natalie.
Natalie: Of course not. How petty of me, yet again.
Evangeline: I shouldn't have bothered you.
Rex: All right, so I was right. Cramer was blackmailing him to keep his affair a secret.
John: Yeah, it would seem that way.
Rex: So, she must've been married, huh? He must've been trying to keep her life from being torn apart if anyone found out.
John: I don't know. Colson's ambitious. Hell, he's a damn politician. Maybe the next Lieutenant Governor thought he needed to protect himself.
Rex: All right, but just because he was having an affair doesn't mean his career was over. I mean, all sorts of people have affairs. What kind of affair would make somebody kill to keep it hidden?
Daniel: What the hell were you thinking, sending me that C.D.? Nora saw me with it. I had to tell her it was from me.
Mark: Do you know how hard it is to be in the same room with you, watch you go home with your wife? I'm sorry. I just wanted you to think of me when we're not together.
Daniel: Trust me, I always think about you. It'll -- it'll be okay, I promise, if you just let it.
Mark: By me standing in the shadows, watching you with your arms around her when it should be me?
Daniel: Look; I'm going to be sworn in as Lieutenant Governor tomorrow. I'll get you a job. We'll be together. I'll take care of you, I promise.
Mark: Okay. I'm sorry. Look, I know you've always taken care of me.
Daniel: I take care of everything.
Bo: Hi, Nora.
Nora: Did you make plans with Matthew?
Bo: Yeah. Yeah, I did.
Nora: Something's wrong. What is it?
Bo: I need to talk to you about Daniel.
>> On the next "One Life to Live" --
Lindsay: She's going to be in the care of a woman who would rather be picking up guys in a nightclub.
Antonio: That's a lie!
Rex: Daniel Colson killed Paul and Jen, and now we have the proof.
Bo: He is not who you think he is, Nora.
