One Life to Live Transcript Monday 8/15/05
Proofread by Brandi
Kevin: What do you mean, the deal fell through? What do you -- why? No one at B.E. knew about the merger. If it leaked, it happened on your end.
Kevin: What have you done to me now?
Nash: Honey, I'm home.
Nash: Tess, you were in such a hurry to leave, you forgot your cell phone.
Nash: Hi, yes, do you know where Tess is? Who are you? Where are you?
Antonio: So you're saying that --
Jessica: Tess slept around. I fought so hard, Antonio. But Tess was strong, and as soon as she got control, I couldn't get it back until you found me.
Antonio: So you're saying that when Tess had sex, it wasn't you?
Jessica: Yes. Tess is a completely different person.
Antonio: But it's -- it's still your body.
Jessica: Yes, but I'm not conscious of what's going on. It's -- it's worse than a blackout. It's like I completely disappear.
Antonio: But you're there. Somewhat. You. I mean, when -- when Tess chooses to have sex with someone, that guy -- that guy is touching you. You had sex with other men.
Jessica: I know. I'm so sorry, Antonio. What do we do?
Antonio: I don't know.
Antonio: How many?
Antonio: How many men?
Dorian: How many, Blair? Blair?
Dorian: How many Buchananís can I invite to the wedding without half the guests needing oxygen resuscitation?
Blair: Ok, why can't you just marry the man that you love without turning this into one long migraine, huh?
Dorian: Well, if you don't want to help, just say so.
Blair: No, I'm here, aren't I? I'm here, I'm helping you, but I just think this endless feuding with the Buchananís is getting boring.
Dorian: Would you explain to Blair why this is so important?
David: What, are you kidding? I wish we'd just elope and go to a Caribbean hideaway and spend all the money on ourselves instead of people we'd rather feed broken glass to. How is Todd, anyway?
Dorian: Hmm. What's gotten into you?
Dorian: And you. Why -- why are you so distracted?
Blair: Oh, I don't know, Dorian. Maybe it's the fact that there's a psychotic accountant out on the loose that has a fatal attraction to my fiancť. I don't know.
Dorian: Talk about boring.
Dorian: I mean it. Can we get through this evening without mentioning Margaret Cochran or Todd?
David: [As a parrot] Margaret Cochran, Margaret Cochran!
Blair: Todd, Todd, Todd. I happen to be worried about him.
Dorian: In my experience, things don't happen to Todd. Todd happens to things.
Spencer: Dr. Spencer Truman checking in.
Spencer: Todd? What the hell happened to you?
Jessica: Antonio, I don't know how many men Tess has slept with. I -- I met some of them.
Antonio: How did that happen?
Jessica: Well, they'd approach me and they talked to me about the time they spent with -- with Tess. But I didn't -- I had no idea who they were. I didn't know what they were talking about. I don't even know how I ended up in New York. I don't know where I've been living. It's like I've been possessed.
Antonio: So that's why you won't make love to me?
Jessica: I can't. I mean, what if I've been exposed to something?
Antonio: When did it start? So we might've been together since you had sex with --
Jessica: I may have already put you at risk. The truth is I -- I don't know, I might already have an S.T.D., have H.I.V. I can't even think about it. Oh, my God.
Antonio: It's not your fault. You have an illness. It made you do things.
Jessica: Yeah, D.I.D., it just sounds so --
Antonio: I know.
Jessica: Please, please don't.
Antonio: Look at me. I love you. I'm not willing to walk away from this, from us. Whatever's going on inside you, we can deal with it, together.
Nash: Water. Beer.
Nash: You wouldn't believe the day that I had. Well, you were there for some of it. The great sex. Great sex? How about the great talk here? We talked about the future, about the winery. The winery. It's all good stuff. It's good stuff. Man. Man. I aced my meeting. Aced it. I know that guy can't wait to give you all of his money. I know, it was great! All of it! Hell, it's like -- it's like all of our dreams that we talked about, they were actually going to come true. All of them. Huh. But you missed the best part. The best part was me standing on a street corner in the rain like a soggy, lovesick idiot. What has that woman done to me?
Kelly: Um -- I don't know what you're talking about. I just got here.
Kevin: The merger fell through. There was a leak. You were the only one with access to the information.
Kelly: Why on earth would I want to screw up your business deal?
Kevin: I don't know, revenge?
Kelly: For what?
Kevin: Who knows with our history.
Kelly: Ok, I don't know where this is coming from, but what happened to putting all that behind us?
Kevin: Huh, that's a good question.
Kelly: I can't believe you're turning on me like this.
Kevin: Now this is my fault?
Kelly: I'm going to go.
Kevin: Wait. Hold on, you're not even defending yourself.
Kelly: Defending myself against what? You obviously think I did something. If I deny it, you're just going to think I'm lying.
Kevin: The sad thing is I trusted you.
Kelly: Look, if news of the merger got out, it didn't come from me.
Kevin: You were the only one with the information.
Kelly: So what? I care about Buchanan Enterprises because I care about you. I know how important this deal was to you. Why would I want to screw it up? Kevin, I didn't do this. Why don't you believe me?
Dorian: Todd can take care of himself. Excuse me, but I am supposed to be the center of attention here. I am the bride, remember?
Blair: Yep, yep, how could we forget? Ok, let's look. Let me see.
Blair: Oh, you're going to put Andrew and Cassie together? That's just a real great idea, and then they're going to have bad wedding flashbacks. Yep, that's great.
Dorian: I did that?
Blair: Yes, you did.
Dorian: I did.
Dorian: Oh, my goodness. Well, you see how upset I am?
Blair: Well --
Dorian: Furthermore -- oh, no. David, you are supposed to be with Spencer right this minute having your tuxedo fitting.
Blair: Run along, David.
David: Don't worry, Dr. Dork-a-lot has plenty of custom suits and tuxedos in his closet. The fact that he's condescending to a rent-a-tux? That should tell you what he thinks about this.
Dorian: Maybe he's just trying to fit in.
David: Dorian, Spencer does not mix with riffraff like us.
David: Riffraff like me. This whole tuxedo thing is part of his master plan.
Blair: God, you know what, you're as bad as she is.
Dorian: Are you saying he's only agreed to be in our wedding because it's part of some "master plan"?
David: Have you not been listening? Spencer is cold and calculating. He has been since the day he was born, and nothing has changed since he got to Llanview.
Spencer: What happened to you? Somebody stab you, huh? Manning, hey. Who did this to you?
Todd: Margaret. Margaret.
Spencer: Margaret? Who's Margaret?
Todd: I couldn't -- I couldn't kill -- I couldn't kill her.
Spencer: Couldn't kill her? Why not?
Todd: She's -- she's -- she's pregnant with my baby.
Kevin: Let's just sit down.
Kelly: Why would I want to sit down?
Kevin: Because I want to believe you.
Kelly: Look, I know that you're the one who gave me the information and that I was the only one you trusted with it.
Kevin: Just sit down!
Kelly: All right, fine, I'll sit down!
Dorian: What do you suppose those two are fighting about? Well, who cares. As long as they're at each other's throats, then this whole idea of reconciliation doesn't have a prayer.
David: I think I'm going to cancel my appointment with Spencer.
David: I just don't feel like being around him right now. Excuse me.
Dorian: Do you know why David hates his brother so much?
Blair: Dorian, if you don't know, why would I know?
Dorian: Well, if he doesn't come clean with me, then --
Blair: Oh, what, you're going to get it out of Spencer? God, you are so desperate to find out what's going on with David that you're willing to ask Viki to be your matron of honor.
Dorian: That is more in the spirit of rapprochement.
Blair: Ha! It's a tactic to get David to ask Spencer to be his best man, and you know it!
Dorian: That is to bring the two of them closer together.
Blair: Oh, you just cannot stand the fact that you don't know everything there is to know about David, right?
Blair: Hmm. So how's your plan really going, Dorian?
Dorian: I'm stuck with Viki as my matron of honor on the most important day of my life.
Blair: Mm-hmm. And the Truman brothers?
Dorian: Oh, they just seem to be growing further and further apart.
Spencer: Start I.V. fluids, wide open. Get labs and x-rays down here stat. I'll be right in.
Doctor: Not to worry, Dr. Truman. I'll do the honors.
Spencer: No, I'm going to take care of this one.
Doctor: Uh -- I'm the attending in charge of the emergency department.
Spencer: Mr. Manning is my private patient. Get me an irrigation set and one gram Enceph I.V.
Doctor: Yeah, I'm perfectly capable of handling this case.
Spencer: I'm sure you are, dear, but Mr. Manning is my private patient. I will take care of it.
Jessica: Antonio, I want to make love to you. I just can't right now.
Antonio: There's no rush, ok, not until we figure out who this Tess person is.
Jessica: Well, I have been trying to track her for months. I just thought that if I could figure out what drives her, I could find out how to keep her inside, you know, and that's why I got Todd to lock me up in St. Ann's.
Antonio: Yeah, he told me you were someplace safe.
Jessica: Yeah, I just figured if I could lock her up, I -- she got out anyway.
Antonio: Why didn't you tell your mom? I mean, she's been through this. She could help you.
Jessica: I can't tell my mom I have D.I.D. It would break her heart. It could kill her.
Antonio: Ok, ok, but you've been there when she was sick, right, so how did she manage to get through it?
Jessica: Well, she had to figure out why she split in the first place, just like -- just like I do.
Antonio: Ok. Well, then from what I understand, multiple personalities are created as a response to trauma. Right?
Jessica: Yes, they protect the person -- me, my mother -- from something that they couldn't bear to face. When I was at St. Ann's, Tess was going to tell me why she exists.
Jessica: Well, the next thing I remember, I was with you on the street in New York, so obviously I couldn't handle it. That's why she came out. Don't you see, that's why I can't -- I can't tell my mom. I mean, Tess already tried to attack her once. I don't know what could happen.
Antonio: Ok, all right. But why Todd? I mean, of all people --
Jessica: Well, he figured it out for himself, and let me tell you, it was -- it was a relief to finally tell somebody. No, I -- I couldn't tell you, Antonio. I was ruining your life. I just thought that it wasn't --
Antonio: It doesn't matter. We're together now.
Jessica: That might not be the best thing. I can't -- I can't control Tess right now.
Antonio: Well, actually, you might. I mean, you say Tess is entirely a different person, right, but without you, she can't exist. Right, so wherever Tess comes from, whatever she feels or wants, she's stuck inside you. Right, so if Tess wants to hurt me, then a part of you must want to hurt me, too.
Kelly: So I guess this is the end of us trying to work out our problems.
Kevin: Don't overreact.
Kelly: So you believe me now?
Kevin: I don't know what I believe, Kelly. I'm mad, all right? B.E.'s facing cutbacks, divestiture. I mean, this -- this merger would've really brought us out of the woods.
Kelly: I know. I thought we were out of the woods, too.
Dorian: You know, I've been thinking about what you told me happened in the cabin between Margaret and --
Blair: Don't bring it up here. I told you not to --
Dorian: Stop it. Now that the initial shock has worn off, I've revised my opinion.
Blair: Of what?
Dorian: You said Todd told you.
Dorian: His version, right? Well, I think that was just a version. We have to hear Margaret's side.
Blair: Margaret's side?
Blair: Are you kidding me? Dorian, she's insane.
Dorian: And Todd is a maladjusted reprobate and you can't take anything he says at face value.
Blair: Of all the evil things that that woman did to me -- think about it. I mean, you're saying now that she's not capable of raping Todd?
Dorian: Todd has a lengthy criminal record of his own, and you would do well to remember that.
Spencer: For crying out loud. David, listen, I got to reschedule the tux fitting. Something's come up.
David: Aw, darn it. I was really looking forward to comparing inseams with you. Goodbye.
Spencer: All right, all right. Oh, wait, hang on, hang on.
Spencer: Do you happen to know where Blair is?
David: Yeah, she's here with me and Dorian.
Spencer: Listen, tell her to get down to the hospital right away. It's Todd.
Nurse: We need you, Dr. Truman.
Spencer: All right, just tell her to get down here.
David: Blair, I just got off the phone with Spencer.
David: He said that Todd's at the hospital.
David: You should get down there, I guess.
Doctor: His crit is low 20s. We're going to have to transfuse him.
Spencer: What's his blood type?
Nurse: O-neg, and the blood bank is out of it.
Doctor: They're getting it from the blood center right now.
Spencer: You know, he's not going to have time for that.
Doctor: But, Dr. Truman --
Spencer: Lucky for Mr. Manning, he and I have the same blood type. I'll be the donor.
Doctor: Wait, I don't understand the urgency --
Spencer: I don't think you're in a position to question my judgment. He's my private patient.
Doctor: I'll cancel the blood.
Spencer: Yeah, Todd. It's your lucky day. I can't wait to see the look on your face when you find out that you have my blood running through your veins and that very exciting news that you told me about being a father again. Congratulations.
Nash: To Tess. Goodbye. Whatever in the hell these things are -- goodbye.
[Answering machine beeps]
Fred's voice: Congratulations, buddy. Hey, are you there?
Nash: No, no one is here!
Fred's voice: Well, since you couldn't stop talking about this mysterious Tess of yours, I think we should all have dinner tonight at Ich Bin.
Nash: Yeah, Ich Bin.
Fred's voice: We'll celebrate your new investor, we'll toast to grapes and Napa, to giving Bruce almighty the royal kiss-off, and last but not least, to the woman who's responsible for that dopey smile on your face, dude. Wait, where's the real Nash Brennan and what have you done with him? I wish I had someone like that in my life. Don't let this one go. All right, see you soon, buddy boy.
[Answering machine beeps]
Nash: What if something has happened to her?
Jessica: I don't have any buried resentment towards you.
Antonio: I know, ok.
Jessica: If I did, I would've let Tess have her way.
Antonio: I know, but is that up to you?
Jessica: That's not how it works, Antonio. Yes, the personality does protect the host, but it's not like it's being a good person. The good part of me gets buried.
Antonio: Ok, so if this didn't happen because of what happened with Tico, then -- then what was it?
Jessica: I don't know. But it must have been triggered by something. Maybe it was when I lost my baby. I did do some really nasty things to Dorian Lord.
Antonio: You think that was Tess?
Jessica: Well, maybe. I mean, I did black out during that time.
Antonio: Ok, well, what about when you married Tico? Was that you?
Jessica: Unfortunately, I remember all of that. But I don't know, Tess could've been the reason why I jumped into it so quickly.
Antonio: Oh, ok. I thought it might have been because of Sonia and me, but maybe --
Jessica: I don't think so. It's not like Tess is going around avenging all -- all of the things that wronged me. It doesn't work that way. She just wants to go and cause trouble. She's like my mom's alter Niki Smith. She needs to assert her independence. And her favorite way to do that is through sex. I'm sorry. I understand if you would never want to touch me again.
Antonio: It's not that.
Jessica: It is that, Antonio. I mean, how do you think I feel? I -- I wake up every day and all I want to do is just take a shower, a really hot shower, and I just -- I just never feel clean. I see men on the street and I wonder, "have I slept with them? Am I going to sleep with them?" There's nothing that I can do to stop it.
Antonio: It's going to be ok.
Jessica: It's never going to be ok again.
Antonio: Look at me, Jess, look at me. I don't care what that other person did. You are still the woman I fell in love with, and nothing is going to change that. You're not alone in this. You are my life.
Jessica: Antonio, it's not safe. I can't.
Antonio: I'm not afraid. This is real and it's good. I want you to feel what it's like to be loved again. But you're going to have to open up your heart and allow yourself to trust me. Can you do that?
Jessica: Right now, this moment, I feel like everything's going to be ok.
Antonio: Well, that's good. Hold on to that. You know, that trauma that you said causes your personality to split -- are you sure you can't remember anything like that?
Jessica: No, I must have blocked it out. But I do think that it's the key, though. I -- I think that if we figure out when it started, then we could put Tess back inside forever.
Antonio: Ok. Then let's do it. I mean, we're both investigators, and Tess gave us our first lead.
Jessica: What lead?
Antonio: Her address in New York. Look, I know it's hard for you, ok, but I think we should go back and see what we can turn up and trace her backward from there.
Jessica: I just -- we don't even know what apartment's hers, I mean, and the building is so big.
Antonio: It's not like she led a low-key life. I mean, all we have to do is ask around. And if she's anything like you, then I'm sure she left quite an impression.
Jessica: Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of.
Antonio: I miss that smile.
Jessica: Antonio, I don't want to go back to New York. That's Tess' world. That's where she's the strongest. I -- I'm afraid I won't be able to resist her. But I know that you're right. I know it's something that we have to do. But would you go on your own?
Antonio: I would. But I'm afraid it'll compromise your ability to stay in control. So I'm staying here.
Jessica: Do you think that you're ever going to be able to forgive me -- really forgive me -- for all the things that I did when I was Tess?
Kelly: Don't try being nice to me.
David: Think they're going to hurt each other?
Dorian: Personally, I'm rooting for her stabbing him with a shrimp fork.
David: Creative, but a serrated steak knife would do more damage.
Dorian: No, I don't want her to go to jail. I just want him to suffer.
David: Looks like they're both suffering a great deal already.
Kelly: Look, I'm sorry that the merger didn't pan out.
Kevin: Yeah, well --
Kelly: Kevin, I'm not some kind of corporate spy. I mean, give me a break. I make mistakes when it comes to business. I make them in my personal life.
Kevin: Mistakes? Mistakes like what, like your affair in Texas?
Kelly: Oh, you want to take a little waltz down memory lane? I seem to remember that you got back at me for that by sleeping with Blair.
Blair: Where's Todd? What, are you hurt, too?
Spencer: No, I just donated a pint of blood for Todd. He's ok.
Blair: Please, God, don't tell me he's going to die.
Spencer: No, he's stable. He has a stab wound, he's lost a lot of blood, but it wasn't even serious enough to require surgery. He's very lucky, Blair.
Blair: Thank God. Thank God.
Spencer: Listen, he is going to be fine, I promise.
Blair: What happened to --
Spencer: I don't know, a stab wound to the midsection. I found him in the alley beside the hospital. I don't know how he got there.
Blair: It's Margaret.
Spencer: Who's Margaret?
Blair: The last thing he said, he was going to go confront Asa about Margaret.
Spencer: Asa Buchanan?
Blair: Look, I need to find Todd. Where is he? I need to see Todd right now.
Kelly: I was a fool to think that we could go back to the way it was. No matter how much we want to love each other, Kevin, the damage is done. We both know it. So I'm going to go, and you'll have my resignation on your desk in the morning.
Kevin: All right, hold on. Don't go.
Dorian: Do you suppose that Todd's condition is life-threatening?
David: Maybe we should go to the hospital and see if there's anything we can do to make him more uncomfortable.
Dorian: Why bother? Good news travels fast.
Blair: Why aren't you letting me see Todd?
Spencer: Blair, settle down.
Blair: He's dead, isn't he?
Spencer: No, he's not dead.
Blair: He's dead!
Spencer: Look at me, look into my eyes.
Blair: We just got back together! I can't lose him now!
Spencer: Look, he's ok, all right? I promise you he's fine. Take a breath and relax.
Blair: Ok, ok.
Doctor: He's back from CAT scan.
Spencer: I'll be right there.
Blair: Why are you treating him?
Spencer: Because I want it done right. Todd has enough scars. He doesn't need another reminder of what he's been through. Ok?
Nash: Yes, my girlfriend didn't come home tonight. I'm worried that she might be hurt. She's white, blond hair, blue eyes, about 5'7". Tess. Just no last name, just Tess, like Madonna or Cher. Yeah, I'll hold. Thank you. All right. Well, at least I know you're not lying in a coma somewhere.
Nash: Tess, what has happened to you?
Antonio: Jess, there's nothing to forgive. Tess is another person. I mean, she's responsible for all the damage.
Jessica: That's easy to say.
Antonio: No, I mean it. I mean it, look, there is nothing that Tess can say or do that's going to keep me away from you. I mean, all we have to do is stay true to ourselves and be honest and I think we'll come out of this ok.
Jessica: I promise.
Antonio: I love you, and I'm not going to give you up.
Nash: No, no, you're not going anywhere. I slugged him because he tried to steal this lady's purse.
Nash: Yes, I'd like to speak to the manager, please. Great, ok. My sister-in-law was in your restaurant a few days ago and somebody tried to run away with her purse. No, that's ok, I'm not calling to bust your chops or anything. The guy ruined our vacation, and I'd like to make sure that the cops -- that the cops stick it to him. Yeah. Yeah. Is there any chance you might have the arresting officer's name? Great, yes, I'll hold.
Nash: I am going to find you, Tess. I'll find you.
Jessica: Hey, Antonio, I'm starving.
Jessica: Do you want a sandwich? I'm going to make myself one.
Antonio: Yeah, please.
Jessica: Ok. Peanut butter ok?
Jessica: "Salsa playboy steps out"?
Antonio: Oh, hey, what's going on? You all right?
Jessica: Yeah. Who's this?
Layla: I'm not thrilled you left me high and dry in the middle of Manhattan after everything we've been through together. But I've decided to forgive you. Besides, I need my bra back.
Kevin: I don't want you to quit B.E.
Kelly: We can't work together. You've already accused me of corporate espionage. What if I trigger a sell off or get you investigated by the S.E.C.?
Kevin: Well, you were the only one with the information.
Kelly: Yeah. And to think I was going to pass up Spencer Truman for you. God, I really am an idiot.
Dorian: Things are certainly looking up.
David: Excuse me one second.
David: Kevin, what was that about?
Kevin: None of your business.
David: I care about Kelly.
Kevin: It was a business dispute. Put it on my tab.
David: Oh, boy. And I'm the idiot who supplied the information to my brother. What are you up to, Spencer? What's up your sleeve this time?
Spencer: He's going to be all right.
Blair: Did he say anything about what happened to him?
Todd: Margaret --
Spencer: Margaret? Who's Margaret?
Todd: I couldn't kill -- I couldn't kill her.
Spencer: Couldn't kill her? Why not?
Todd: She's -- she's pregnant with my baby.
Spencer: You know what, I think you ought to ask him that yourself. You can go in.
Todd: You ok?
Blair: What happened? Who did this to you? Was it -- was it Asa? I need to know the truth.
>> On the next "One Life to Live" --
Todd: It wasn't Asa. He's not the one who stabbed me.
Blair: Well, then who did it?
Jessica: You don't have to explain. I was gone, and you were involved with other people, too.
Rex: Because I'm not leaving until you tell me where you stashed my sister.
Bo: We're running out of time.
John: I know.
