One Life to Live Transcript Tuesday 8/9/05
Proofread by Brandi
Todd: Big day.
Blair: Yes, it is exciting.
Todd: Yeah. Either Asa proves that he's taken care of Margaret or we go to Bo with everything that bastard did to you.
Blair: I was talking about our wedding day. Today is the day we finalize our plans with Reverend Reede, remember?
Todd: Yeah. Well, we can do that, too. But I think your wedding should be without bodyguards as attendants and the shadow of Margaret hanging over us. So, I gave Asa 48 hours to bring me that psychopath's head on a platter. He's got 52 minutes, 22 seconds left.
Asa: 51 minutes.
Asa: You, my friend, are taking one hell of a chance, waltzing in here whenever you feel like it.
Margaret: Are you addressing me?
Asa: Do you see anyone else around?
Margaret: Oh -- well, I like to be called Margaret.
Asa: If Renee catches you, you'll be addressed as a number in Statesville prison.
Margaret: Fine. Then I'll simply tell your son Bo that I was your invited houseguest. Besides, Renee won't say anything if you tell her not to. Everybody does what you tell them -- well, everybody but me, and you don't like that.
Asa: I don't like you, period.
Margaret: But you're stuck with me until we both get what we want. And what I want is to be reunited with my baby's father and to live happily ever after. And you? What is it that you want, Asa? Why did you rescue me from the border patrol?
Nash: I got to keep my promise.
Nash: 600 west 66th --
Tess: Oh --
Nash: I promised I'd get you there on time.
Tess: Oh, I'm already so late.
Nash: I know.
Tess: Can I just look for a job tomorrow?
Nash: I could snuggle you all day, but I got some stuff I got to do.
Nash: I know, I know, but, hey, I'll take you to your interview first. Ok? All right? Ugh -- ugh -- oh.
Tess: Aw, it's ok, you don't have to. I can get there on my own.
Nash: So you've really actually never had a real job?
Tess: Nope. I'm not scared or anything, though. I happen to be very good at first times.
Nash: Yeah --
Tess: Don't you think?
Nash: Well, I have heard that you are really, really, really good at a few things.
Tess: Oh, wow. Flattery will get you everywhere.
Nash: Then you better call, because you are going to be really late.
Tess: Oh, I'll tell them that I got mugged or something. They'll be really, really sympathetic.
Nash: Hmm. Hmm. You're not nervous at all?
Tess: Uh-uh. No, I'm totally psyched. I mean, I know that being an executive assistant for Kim Saito is just a fancy word of saying "secretary."
Tess: But I think that this job interview could lead to much more.
Layla: What do you want me to do?
Antonio: Go. I'll take it from here.
Layla: I want to help. Ok, I can admit it. I'd kind of like to see how this whole thing pans out.
Antonio: I'm doing this alone, Layla. Excuse me. I'm supposed to meet a friend of mine here. She's coming in for an interview.
Antonio: Jessica Buchanan.
Receptionist: Your friend's a half-hour late.
Antonio: Well, she must be stuck in traffic. Did she leave a number where she can be reached?
Receptionist: If she's your friend, shouldn't you have her number?
Antonio: I do, but -- not her cell. I have her home number. And since she's obviously on her way here, then --
Receptionist: I can't give you her number. It's against company policy.
Layla: Sorry I'm late.
Antonio: What --
Layla: Hi. I'm Jessica Buchanan.
Blair: What's that?
Todd: That is a timer. If we don't hear from Asa by the time it goes off --
Dorian: I'm so glad you could make time to see me. Todd, I'm sure that you've got lots of important things to occupy your time while I visit with my niece?
Todd: No, I think I'd like to hang out with you two birds. We could discuss our feelings.
Blair: Todd --
Todd: No, why don't I watch the ball game.
Dorian: As if he had any feelings.
Blair: Why don't you sit down and show me what you got.
Dorian: Ok. Ah. Well -- ahem -- even though David and I have had to postpone our wedding --
Blair: "Postpone"? Why?
Dorian: Yes, yes, problems with the caterer. Don't ask, it's -- this is not going to change. I've selected the bridesmaids' dresses. What do you think of that --
Blair: Oh, Dorian.
Dorian: In that fabric?
Blair: I love it, and I love the color.
Dorian: Yes, yes!
Dorian: I think all my girls are going to look absolutely fabulous.
Blair: This is beautiful.
Dorian: Unfortunately, in a moment of weakness, I agreed to let Viki pick out her own dress.
Blair: Oh, would you relax? No one's going to outshine you on your wedding day or any other day.
Dorian: Excuse me -- as if Viki could ever outshine me.
Blair: That's right.
Dorian: Ah, everything's falling into place. Viki is my matron of honor, and Spencer as David's best man. What? Come on, what?
Dorian: That's not "nothing." Your whole expression changed when I mentioned Spencer's name.
Blair: You know what? I promised myself I wouldn't talk to you about this because every time we talk about this, it gets bigger in your mind.
Dorian: Tell me.
Blair: I confronted Spencer about your suspicions about him being interested in me.
Blair: And he's not.
Dorian: Oh, please! Of course he's going to deny it to you.
Blair: Oh, Dorian, I don't care whether you believe him, I don't care whether you believe me, because it doesn't matter. I don't care whether he's head over heels in love with me or not. It's irrelevant because I am in love with Todd Manning. You got that?
Dorian: You may not be interested in a big, handsome, world-renown doctor, but thank goodness Kelly still is.
Kelly: Hey. I was just dropping some stuff off that needs your signature --
Kelly: I have to be careful. What if my boss finds out? He might not approve an office romance.
Kevin: Oh, he approves. He definitely approves.
Kelly: Are you sure?
Kevin: Are you serious? Of course, I'm sure.
Kelly: Yeah, I've just been a little worried, because since we've taken this step, I -- maybe I should resign.
Kevin: What? What -- you're the best P.R. person in the field. I mean, I'd be lost without you. I was lost without you. Come on. We've always been able to blend our professional and personal lives before. There's no reason why we can't do it again.
Kelly: Well, ok, if you're so confident.
Kevin: Yeah. Aren't you?
Kevin: Don't you feel good about us? Come on.
Kelly: Yes, I do.
Kevin: Better than ever?
Kelly: Better than ever.
Kevin: Ok. Then you need to tell Spencer Truman that it's over between you. Tell him that you can't see him anymore.
Spencer: "Buchanan enterprises continues to struggle." Hmm. Oh, Davey, how serendipitous. You know, I was just thinking how honored I was that my little brother stood up finally and in person to ask me to be his best man at his wedding.
David: Yeah, well, I was asked under duress, ok? It wasn't because I've got any special place in my heart for you. And if you do anything to interfere with my wedding --
Spencer: Why do you accuse me of always running some kind of game, Dave?
David: Because I know you. You're always running some sort of game, Spencer.
Spencer: Well, then you also know that I always win.
David: Yeah, and if you don't, you get ugly quick.
Layla: So, what are you doing here?
Antonio: What -- I came to meet you at your interview.
Receptionist: You're late, Ms. Buchanan.
Layla: It's a parking lot out there. I should have taken the subway. I am really sorry.
Antonio: I -- I bet you are. I know how much this interview meant to you.
Layla: Definitely. I've wanted to work here all my life, and I hope with all my heart that I didn't blow it.
Receptionist: I'll check with Ms. Saito.
Antonio: What the hell do you think you're doing?
Layla: Are you going to fill me in or what?
Antonio: Fine. Jessica never showed up for her job interview. All right, she had to have filled out an application, and she must have written down her address and her phone number somewhere. Do you think you can --
Layla: You need me to buy you some time and pretend I'm Jessica.
Antonio: Well, you're an actress.
Layla: Oh. So now you're recognizing my talents?
Woman: Hello. I'm Kim Saito.
Layla: And I'm Jessica Buchanan. I can't tell you how much I've looked forward to meeting you.
Receptionist: She is the last. Is it ok if I take my break now?
Kim: No problem. Miss Buchanan, come with me, please.
Tess: So -- how do I look?
Nash: Like you own the place. Great, great. You look great.
Tess: Fantastic, and one day I just might own this place.
Tess: So what do you got going on today? It sounded pretty big.
Nash: Oh, I'm just working a few prospects. But I am feeling lucky today.
Tess: Yeah, me, too.
Nash: Oh, yeah?
Nash: Mm-hmm. Well, knock 'em dead, kiddo.
Nash: Later, gator.
Nash: You take my breath away.
Tess: That's for luck -- for you and me.
Bruce: Hey, it's me, Bruce. I told you I'd get back to you.
Nash: Yeah, well, and I told you that I could take care of things myself.
Bruce: Have you? Didn't think so, which means you still have that problem. Oh, if I'm wrong, you can just hang up now and our paths will never cross again. Ok, then. So let's talk now about how to make your problem disappear.
Kevin: Ok. We can't do this. We're never getting any work done. It's terrible.
Kelly: Right. Work.
Kevin: Right. Ok, listen, I've got something that I'm working on that I want you to be a part of, too. These are the final papers that have been drawn up for a merger between B.E. and Cano International, which can double these assets.
Kelly: Ok. Well, that's great. That's very important, considering last quarter's losses.
Kevin: Yeah, well, listen, I'm giving this to you, ok? You're the only one that has it. It's top-secret, and if the word gets out, then the whole deal could go south. So be careful.
Kelly: Sure. I understand.
Kevin: Ok, just take it home, look it over.
Kelly: All right. I'll get back to you tomorrow with some ideas.
Kelly: Oh -- hang on. Oh, let me take this.
Spencer: Kelly, it's Spencer. How are you? I've missed you.
Kelly: What's going on?
Spencer: Oh, I'm just here at The Palace. Think you could get away for lunch?
Kelly: Yeah, I'd like to see you, too. I'll be right there. Well, that was Spencer. I'm going to go meet him and tell him that it's over between us.
Blair: Ok, why Spencer, then, hmm?
Dorian: He is a world-class catch, for goodness sakes. Though, I will confess I -- I do need to gain some insight into my future husband's brother.
Blair: Now, why do you need all this insight?
Dorian: Because David has been really different ever since Spencer came to town, and something happened in their past and I need to find out what it is.
Blair: Well, here comes the bride. I sure do like these pictures. I especially like this one.
Dorian: Oh, yes, change the subject, go ahead.
Blair: I changed the subject because it's tiresome.
Dorian: Oh, really?
Dorian: Thank you very much. I guess I'll just have to go and consult with Kelly. "Oh, really? Thank you." Did I say "thank you."
Blair: No, no, who, by the way -- and we're going to go back to the tiresome -- she's not as interested in Spencer Truman as you may think.
Dorian: Oh, really? Well, why don't I just check that out with Kelly herself?
Blair: Go right ahead, you go do -- meddling, meddle, meddle.
Dorian: Oh, by the way, whatever it is that you're timing is just about cooked.
Blair: Don't forget your purse.
Dorian: Oh. Thank you.
Blair: I might steal your money.
Dorian: You deserved that.
Blair: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Dorian: Have a good day!
Blair: You, too.
Todd: Is the coast clear?
Blair: Yeah -- she just left.
Todd: What'd she want?
Blair: Oh, she just wanted to talk about her wedding. You know, no big deal.
Todd: I thought more time had passed.
Blair: Wow. Me, too. It seems to be, like, dragging on. Hmm.
Todd: This is going to go off eventually.
Blair: And then what, Todd? What are you going to do if Asa hasn't taken care of Margaret?
Asa: What is this, 20 questions? I had my reasons for protecting you from the cops. And that, my friend, is all you need to know.
Margaret: Oh, fine. You don't have to tell me what your plan is. But I'm an accountant, remember? I can put two and two together. I know why you rescued me from the border patrol, and it wasn't to protect me and my little Toddy. No, it was to use me. Hmm. I know all about your marriage to Blair and how she ruined your life, the same way she's ruining Todd's. You want me and my baby to destroy her. That's it, isn't it?
Asa: That's part of it.
Margaret: So if you put me away, that would defeat your plan.
Asa: You leave this property and you're dead. The cops will throw the book at you, life in prison with no possibility of parole.
Margaret: I'm not the least bit worried about that. Todd would never let anything happen to the mother of his namesake. As far as Blair is concerned, getting rid of her is very simple. All you have to do is kill her (Whistling ).
Dorian: Kevin, I'm sorry to interrupt.
Kevin: No, you're not.
Dorian: I'm looking for Kelly.
Kevin: She went out.
Dorian: Oh, that's a shame. I have some details about my wedding I need to discuss with her.
Kevin: Yes, your wedding. I understand you asked my mother to be your maid of honor. I'd be touched on her behalf if I didn't find it so spine-chilling.
Dorian: That's because you are so cynical. You know, it's because you always fail to keep an open mind.
Kevin: I have to get back to work.
Dorian: Mm-hmm. Oh, goodness. Did I mention that -- yes, indeed -- Spencer Truman is going to be David's best man?
Kevin: I'm busy, Dorian.
Dorian: And he's going to be Kelly's escort.
Dorian: If you think that you and Kelly are going to be getting back together again, you are deluded, because she is not so masochistic that she would ever go back to a man who caused her so much pain in the past and now.
Kevin: Just for your information, Dorian, Kelly's not going anywhere with Spencer Truman because Kelly and I are back together -- in every way.
Spencer: White wine, please, Briana? So it's always nose to the grindstone over at B.E., is it?
Kelly: Yeah, you know, I mean, we've had some downtime, but lately it's just been really swamped.
Spencer: Really? Swamped in general or are you working on something specific?
Kelly: Something specific and very, very big.
Spencer: I must be really out of the loop. I haven't heard of anything big going down over at Buchanan.
Kelly: It's top-secret, and if I told you, I'd have to kill you.
Spencer: Oh, I see. So the top-secret security guys hooked you up with this briefcase to carry your secret documents around, right?
Kelly: Yeah, absolutely. In fact, could I leave this behind the bar, and if you'd keep an eye on it, I'd really appreciate it.
Briana: No problem. I'll look after it.
Bruce: No worries, Nash. As long as I get what I need in return, I can take care of the problem for you. Oh, by the way, no hard feelings about you horning in on my action with that blond. She's a pretty hot number, huh?
Nash: Wake up. Come on, come on, come on.
Bruce: So what are you going to do with her?
Nash: I don't know.
Nash: You know, let's just stick to business, shall we?
Bruce: So you hooked up with her, didn't you?
Nash: You know what? I never saw that blond again. So, what can you offer me, Bruce?
Tess: Bye, bye, Jessica. Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
Kim: So how long did you work at blithe design, Jessica?
Layla: Blithe design? Let's see -- a little less than a year. Great job. I learned so much, especially from Evangeline Williamson.
Layla: You don't know her? Ms. Saito, oh, my God, she is absolutely the next big thing -- cutting-edge, big-picture stuff.
Kim: Hmm. Well, I'll have to look her up.
Layla: Oh, I think I can arrange that. We're very close.
Antonio: Bingo. It's her social -- no phone, no address. Damn.
Receptionist: Hello? What are you doing?
Antonio: I was looking for my cell phone.
Receptionist: On my desk?
Antonio: Well, I must have put it down somewhere when I -- well, would you look at that. I --
Antonio: It's been in my pocket the entire time.
Layla: This is a dream come true, Ms. Saito, truly.
Kim: I've offered Miss Buchanan the job, Andrew. She'll come back in the morning and fill out the necessary forms.
Layla: Bright and early. Thank you so much.
Kim: Thank you. I look forward to working with you.
Layla: Great news, huh?
Antonio: I'm happy for you. We should go, huh?
Layla: Bye, now. I am so good! I --
Layla: I was on fire in there. I totally charmed that lady. Couldn't you tell?
Antonio: Doesn't matter, Layla.
Layla: Of course it does. I got the part.
Antonio: No, Layla, you didn't get the part, you got the job, and, actually, you didn't get anything because Jessica Buchanan got the job, and she's obviously not here to claim it. Nor did I get the address or the phone number.
Layla: Oh, no.
Antonio: Yeah, yeah, complete waste of time.
Layla: Well, at least you know she's in New York.
Antonio: Well, I know she was in New York. She could be anywhere now.
Nash: Oh, just some pretty tough terms you've laid down, Bruce.
Bruce: That's the offer, my friend. Take it or leave it. But it seems to me you're out of options. So, if you still want to be a player and hang around with society types and party girls like that hot blond -- what was her name, Tess?
Nash: You know, that's it. Forget it.
Bruce: No, I'll give you a little time to think about it. But think quick or you're out of luck.
Todd: So what's your solution? Should we let Asa just screw us over as usual? Let him string us along just to keep his butt out of prison?
Blair: My concerns are not whether Asa is going to come after Margaret. My concerns are what you are going to do if Asa doesn't take care of Margaret. Look, I cannot -- I can't lose you again, Todd. The kids can't lose you again.
Todd: I know. My family is my world to me.
Todd: I'm not going to let anything jeopardize my safety.
Blair: You know, you say that now to me, but then if someday --
Todd: I know, I know. Whatever I do to get rid of Margaret, you won't lose me. I promise.
Blair: How can you promise something like that?
Todd: You're my love, right? You know that?
Margaret: You agree with me, don't you? That killing Blair would be win-win for both of us?
Asa: I am calling the shots here. And killing Blair is not in my plan.
Margaret: Well, then you'd better revise your plan.
Asa: Well, if I don't?
Margaret: Well, if you don't, I'm going to have to start the ball rolling on a couple of my own plans.
Asa: What -- what in the hell are you talking about?
Asa: Don't shush me.
Margaret: Angry voices aren't good for Todd Jr.
Asa: You know, you seem to be a -- a real smart cookie, Margaret.
Margaret: I'm real smart.
Asa: Yeah, I -- I'll be damned if I can figure out why you want this manning after all the things he's done to you.
Margaret: Todd loves me!
Asa: Todd loves you?
Asa: Todd wants you stone-cold dead. Hell, he asked me to kill you for him.
Margaret: Everything is going to change -- when he finds out that I'm carrying his baby. I'd better get back to the guesthouse.
Asa: Now, that's the best idea you had all day.
Margaret: Todd and I are going to be together, Asa. You'll see. We'll be together till death do us part.
Asa: And that's exactly what I am hoping, girl.
Kelly: I just want you to know, Spencer, that I -- I really enjoyed this, and I respect you as a doctor and as a human being and --
Kelly: Oh, damn it. I'm so sorry.
Spencer: It's ok.
Spencer: Same person, huh?
Kelly: Yes -- third time.
Spencer: Might be important, better take it.
Dorian: Please tell me it isn't true. Kevin's got to be lying. You -- you aren't going back to him.
Kelly: I'm so sorry.
Spencer: No, it's all right. Go ahead, take your call.
Kelly: Ok. Excuse me.
Kelly: What do you want?
Spencer: Davey -- ahem -- I need you to do something for me.
David: Yeah, right.
Spencer: I need you to go back there behind the bar, under the bar by the register, and get Kelly's briefcase, open it up without being seen, and tell me what's inside.
David: You got to be out of your mind. If you want to know what's in there, go look yourself.
Spencer: Need I remind you, Davey, that I have the hands of a surgeon and I do not get them dirty? Plus, I have some rather interesting tidbits of information regarding your rather colorful past that I wouldn't mind airing out at your wedding, say, in the middle of my toast to the bride and groom?
David: How am I supposed to get back there with that sentinel? She never leaves her post.
Spencer: Oh, you leave her to me.
Spencer: So, Briana, you know, I usually don't mix medicine with pleasure, but I couldn't help but notice you turning your wrist a little while ago. You doing a lot of work on the computer, are you?
Briana: Oh, yes, I'm a bartender/student. I spend hours typing.
Spencer: Could be the beginning of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Spencer: Oh, there are things you can do, measures you can take, exercises I can show you. Why don't you come around here for a minute.
Briana: Well -- all right, it is kind of quiet, so, sure.
David: "Carpal tunnel" -- how pathetic.
Spencer: There, now. The form of manipulation that I just performed for you there was very necessary. And I think you'll find it to be very helpful, as well.
Spencer: So what'd you find out?
David: Just some files about Buchanan enterprises.
Spencer: Go on.
David: There was a confidential file about some proposed merger between B.E. and Cano or Cano International.
David: That's it, Spencer. That's all that was in there. There was absolutely nothing in that briefcase that would do anything for you, all right? Now, it was nice doing blackmail with you.
Kelly: Dorian, I cannot talk to you anymore. Listen, Kevin and I are going to give this another shot.
Dorian: You are making the most hideous mistake of your life.
Dorian: If you think I'm going to stand by -- oh. You are so smug. You're really pleased with yourself, aren't you?
Kevin: Kelly and I love each other. That's all that's important, not what's happened in the past.
Dorian: You mark my words. You and Kelly will never be able to regain the naive trust you once had in each other because trust, once broken, can never be regained.
Kevin: Yeah, just because you say it in such an imperious way does not make it true.
Dorian: It is true, no matter who says it or how. Oh! I just realized -- why am I so worried? You and Kelly are not going to stay together, because you're going to do something to screw it up. You always do.
Tess: What's the matter with me? I can so pull this off. So what if I've never worked a day in my life and my résumé’s totally bogus and -- who cares? I don't get the job, it's no big deal, right? Do I really want to answer phones and get coffee for some jerk for eight hours a day? Ugh, but I do need money if I want to stay in New York. Now I have a reason to stay in New York.
Layla: So, what do we do next?
Antonio: We aren't doing anything. I'm going to stay in New York and keep looking for Jessica.
Layla: That's the thanks I get for going out on a limb for you? I committed fraud. I could be arrested!
Antonio: Look, save the victim act for your next audition, all right? You loved every minute of it. But now it's time for you to go back to Llanview. I'll buy you a train ticket.
Layla: I'll buy my own, thanks.
Antonio: No, you won't. Look, you did me a favor, and I appreciate it. And for what it's worth, I'm sorry you didn't get the part you were up for, ok? You're good. You really are.
Layla: Thank you. Oh, no -- I forgot my bag upstairs with my pictures and resumes, so I got to go back. You'll wait for me here?
Tess: Hello. I'm here to interview for the executive assistant position.
Andrew: Oh. Sorry. The job's been filled. Ms. Saito isn't seeing anyone else.
Tess: What? How could the job have been filled? I was supposed to get this job, damn it! Who came in and stole it from me?
Spencer: I'll be right there. Well, apparently, you don't have the market cornered on "hectic.” That was the hospital.
Kelly: Oh, you have to go back?
Spencer: Emergency consult, yeah.
Kelly: Well, then I guess we'll do this another time.
Kelly: Thank you so much for watching it for me.
Dorian: Kelly, you are setting yourself up for a huge fall if you think this thing with Kevin is going to work out.
David: Wait a minute -- what's "this thing"? Is something going on between you and --
Kelly: I am not discussing this with either one of you!
Dorian: How can you expect us to have a joyous wedding if you and --
Kelly: Look, Kevin loves me and I love him. And I'm not going to let anyone step on my happiness.
Nash: Bruce, it's Nash. Yeah, I could use your help.
Antonio: Do you need me to spell it out for you? Look, Jessica did not show up for the interview. Yeah -- I don't care! I need you to work overtime until you find out where she is. You understand me?
Andrew: Ms. Saito has met with all the applicants, and she's made her decision.
Tess: No, she hasn't met with all the applicants. I have an appointment. I applied. I'm here. My name is Te-- Jessica Buchanan.
Andrew: You're not Jessica Buchanan. She is.
Margaret's voice: I would like nothing better than to shoot you. I should have had your life, Blair.
Blair: Oh, please, Asa. Take care of Margaret, so Todd doesn't have to.
Asa: Oh, right on time.
Todd: Yeah, and your time is up. Margaret out of the picture?
Asa: My men in Mexico --
Todd: No, no, I don't want to hear any crap about your men in Mexico. That dog's not going to hunt, as you like to say. All right, you've had your chance, Asa. I'm going to Bo.
Asa: Manning -- you want Margaret? You can have her.
>> On the next "One Life to Live" --
Man: Your wildest dreams -- they are about to come true.
Layla: Your boyfriend? He's a friend of mine.
Dorian: Margaret isn't pregnant, is she?
Margaret: You have come to carry me away.
Todd: No, Margaret. I'm going to kill you.
John: The man is a vigilante with no regard to the rule of law.
