Proofread by Brandi
Bo: Hey, John, what's up?
John: Yeah, I just thought I'd give you a quick update on the stakeout.
John: Yeah, nice and boring. I'll call you later.
Natalie: I thought you we working.
John: I'm just taking a little break. So, what are you reading?
Natalie: Just some -- how did you know I was reading a book?
John: I'm on a stakeout just up the hill from Llanfair. Supposedly, the suspects won't be back until tomorrow, so it's kind of boring. But as it turns out, I can see right into your bedroom window.
Natalie: Are you serious?
John: Very serious.
Natalie: I don't believe you.
John: You want proof?
Natalie: Yeah. What am I wearing?
John: Nothing but a smile.
Natalie: Ok, I'm hanging up.
John: Green pajamas with little kitties on them.
Natalie: Oh, my God, you really can see me.
John: It's almost as good as being there.
Cristian: I need a pen and paper.
Guard: What, no "please"? This is solitary. Writing materials are against the rules.
Cristian: Look, I need to write a letter to someone. It's important. Please.
Evangeline: Jerry. Hi, it's Evangeline Williamson. Good, thanks. Remember that favor you owe me? Well, I'm calling it in. I need you to get me in to see a prisoner at Statesville. Remember that john doe who tried to pass himself off as Cristian Vega? Yeah. What do you mean, he's not allowed visitors anymore? Has someone been in to see him recently? Ok, I know you can't tell me who it was, but how about I say a name, and if I'm wrong you stay on the phone. And if I'm right, just hang up, ok? Ok. John Mc Bain.
Todd: Phone lines are dead.
Dorian: Of course, there's a power outage at "Craze." Weren't you listening to David?
Todd: Blair and Starr are there. What if they're in trouble?
David: Todd, it's just a simple electrical outage.
Todd: You don't know that.
Dorian: Look, just a moment ago you were ranting about how you could guarantee that Blair and the children were safe. Now why all of a sudden are you worried?
Margaret: Time to die, Starr. Time to make room for daddy's new family.
Blair: where is-- My God. Billy? Billy. Where's Starr? My God, Starr! Starr, are you in there?
Margaret: Mommy's here.
Blair: Darling, come on, honey, open up!
Margaret: We'd better make this quick.
Asa: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. To the Buchananís.
Bo and Kevin: To the Buchananís.
Spencer: Hear, hear. Looks like we had the same idea.
Asa: And who the hell are you?
Kevin: His name's Spencer Truman, grandpa.
Asa: Truman? Any relation to old Harry?
Spencer: No, I'm afraid not.
Kevin: What's the occasion?
Spencer: Well, I heard about the Cano merger. Just thought I'd stop by and offer my congratulations.
Asa: Well, I tell you, this is a family celebration, pal, and the last time I looked, you were not a member. So, what the hell has our business got to do with you?
Duke: Excuse me, Ms. Williamson?
Evangeline: Duke. Hey.
Evangeline: Call me Evangeline, please.
Duke: Ok, Evangeline.
Evangeline: What can I do for you?
Duke: Actually, I was wondering if you had seen my girlfriend, Adriana Cramer. We were supposed to meet here, but I got held up.
Evangeline: Um, you know, actually, I did. She was on her way to the parking lot when I got here.
Duke: She left? Huh. We came here together. I have the car.
Evangeline: All I know is I saw her walk out with Rex Balsom. Maybe he drove her home. Excuse me.
Adriana: Well, thanks again for the ride home.
Rex: Well, I figured someone ought to show you a few manners after that jackass boyfriend of yours blew you off.
Adriana: Oh, and your idea of good manners is dissing my boyfriend?
Rex: Well, it's true, isn't it?
Adriana: No, it isn't. Duke has a lot of responsibilities, and I understand that. His family depends on him.
Rex: You understand that?
Rex: Even though he promised to be back in 15 minutes and that was, what, a couple hours ago, without even a phone call? Yeah, you must be just fine with that.
Adriana: Look, Rex, whatever issues Duke and I are having are really none of your business. It's late. I'm tired. Thanks again for the ride. What?
Rex: Aren't you going to kiss me good night?
Todd: I'm going to go to "Craze," make sure they're ok.
Dorian: Oh, I just detest that man.
David: But you cover your feelings so well.
Dorian: Honey, iea I really do what Blair toroct t them instead of that pitiful excuse for a man. He's done nothing but make their lives miserable and unhappy. He and Mrgaret Cochran deserve each other.
Blair: Come on, Starr! Honey, are you in there? Honey, answer me please! Starr! Come on, Starr, open up the door!
Margaret: Listen to your mother.
Blair: Come on, honey, open up!
Margaret: She's very worried about you.
Margaret: It's a mother's instinct. It's the only thing Blair and I will ever have in common.
Blair: Starr? Starr!
Margaret: But I'm nothing if not merciful. This will be short and quick. And then once you're gone, it's going to be your mother's turn.
Blair: Honey, open up the door! Are you all right? Starr!
Starr: Help! Help!
Margaret: Oh, hello, Blair! Long time no see!
Blair: Margaret? Open this door, you crazy bitch!
Margaret: Oh, like mother, like daughter. So vulgar.
Starr: Leave me alone!
Blair: Come on, Billy.
Margaret: Oh, no, no, no.
Starr: Stay away from me! Why do you have to do this?
Margaret: Stop whining, you brat!
Starr: Please help me!
Blair: Come on, Billy!
Starr: Leave me alone!
Margaret: Why couldn't you just lay there and let me kill you?
Starr: You're insane!
Margaret: Oh, am I now?
Starr: You will never get away with this.
Margaret: I already have.
Starr: Mom, she's going to kill me!
John: So tell me about the book.
Natalie: It's -- it's just some trashy romance novel that Roxy gave me. You know, all about happily ever after, true love, and shirtless men.
John: Sounds very Roxy.
Natalie: Yeah, in her dreams. They call them bodice-rippers. They're actually quite addicting. In fact, half the female population is looking for some pirate to sweep her off to some deserted island or buy her out of slavery or something.
John: You -- you want me to let you get back to it?
Natalie: I think I've had enough of that to last me 10 lifetimes. I have to say this is actually a lot more exciting, you know, you and me talking, like, about normal stuff, like a normal couple.
John: Yeah, very normal, like me looking at you through your window while I'm on a stakeout.
Natalie: Exactly. You know what I mean.
John: Yeah, I do.
Natalie: You know, I -- I never really thought that we'd ever finally get together. And now that we have, I'm really happy. It really feels good. Ok, your turn.
John: Uh, my turn?
Natalie: Yeah, well, I mean, I just poured my heart out to you. I'm sorry.
John: For what?
Natalie: You don't have to say anything to me. It's enough to know that you're thinking about me.
John: Well, you know, put it this way -- I'm not exactly the type to call his girlfriend from a stakeout. You ualleen
John: Did e u su
John well, look, I'm sorry if I don't always express myself good. But I've always been more of a quiet type, you know?
Natalie: It's all right. You don't have to change for me, John.
John: Ok. Look, just understand this. I'm trying to get better.
Natalie: Ok. I can work with that.
Natalie: Yeah. Um, do you still --
Natalie: Think about her? About Evangeline? I mean, because I still think about Cristian sometimes. I mean, I know the situations are different, but, I mean, you must think about her, too.
Phil: Penny for your thoughts.
Evangeline: Your rates are higher than that, Phil.
Phil: Well, I'll give you my friendly discount. So you here by yourself?
Evangeline: I am now. How about you?
Phil: Just came by to listen to some music, you know? So maybe we can be alone, together. Unless this is a bad time?
Evangeline: Actually, it's a perfect time. Please.
Phil: This is awfully generous of you, you know. The last time we were together, I made the bad date hall of fame.
Evangeline: Oh, no, no, no, that was all me. You were remarkably understanding. Yeah, as a matter of fact, maybe I could talk to you about something -- confidentially?
Phil: Sounds serious.
Evangeline: It is. But if I'm overstepping --
Phil: Hey, hey, hey, it's ok. Whatever you tell me stays between the two of us, no different than if you were in my office.
Evangeline: Thanks. Do you remember hearing on the news about this guy who came to town last year pretending to be somebody named Cristian Vega?
Cristian's voice: "Dear Natalie, I hate doing this in a letter, but I don't know how I can look at you in the eyes and tell you this after everything that's happened. There's something you need to know. Cristian Vega, the man you married, the man you promised to spend the rest of your life with -- he didn't die, Natalie. He's still alive."
Cristian: I'm still alive.
Margaret: No! No!
Starr: Mom! Mom!
Blair: Come here!
Starr: She tried to kill me! She's going to try to kill you, too! Come on, we have to run!
Blair: No, we're not going anywhere, Starr. No, we're going to settle this once and for all.
Adriana: That was to prove a point.
Rex: Yeah, and that point was that you wanted to kiss me.
Adriana: I'm not having this conversation with you.
Rex: Oh, come on, Adriana-- there was a kiss, we both got into it.
Adriana: Do not insinuate that there was passion involved. There wasn't.
Adriana: I am not into you, Rex. I'm in love with Duke Buchanan.
Rex: Ok, you know something -- if I were you, I'd be careful about tossing the word "love" around, because I know what it means, what it looks like, and to be honest with you, you and the Dukester don't fit that picture at all.
Adriana: You don't know the first thing about me and duke.
Rex: Well, I know this -- whenever old Duke has a choice, he chooses work over you. And then the minute his back is turned, you start kissing other guys.
Adriana: Get out.
Rex: Fine. Won't change what happened.
Adriana: That kiss didn't mean anything!
Duke: What kiss?
Dorian: All right. I've got to figure out what password Spencer used on this file. People usually pick passwords that are of personal significance, right? Ok, so --
David: What are you doing over here?
Dorian: Oh, well, just, um, nothing.
David: You look like a little bunny foraging, foraging for food.
David: What are you up to?
Dorian: Um -- oh, I wanted to check my cell phone, see if there was -- no, there isn't -- a message from Blair about the power outage at "Craze."
David: I thought we agreed that Todd was overreacting.
Dorian: We did, and he is, and -- oh, indeed. Why am I bothering? David?
Dorian: The wedding planner wanted me to give him more specifics about our guest list -- you know, people's names, exact spellings -- for the place cards.
David: Spellings and place cards right now?
Dorian: Yes. If not now, when? I think we should begin with Viki Davidson, my matron of honor.
David: Victoria Lord Riley Burke Riley Buchanan Buchanan Carpenter Davidson.
Dorian: That is awesome.
Dorian: You're brilliant.
David: You're the one who made me do all the homework on her.
Dorian: Oh. Now, then -- ok, why don't we just keep it simple. We'll make it "Victoria Davidson."
David: Brilliant idea. Save on paper.
Dorian: Next, your best man. Mm-hmm. So Spencer Truman. Does Spencer have a middle name?
David: The wedding planner wanted to know all of this?
Dorian: Yes, darling, it's very important.
David: Ok, Spencer Vito Truman.
David: Spencer Vito Truman.
Dorian: Spencer -- you know, if you're not going to take our wedding seriously, I ask you, why should I?
David: Don't get so mad.
Dorian: Oh, it's too late for that.
David: All right. Spencer's middle name is Bradley, same as mine. My parents were not very imaginative.
Dorian: "Bradley." You know mv middle name.
David: I never use it. It was my mother's maiden name. But Spencer was always her, you know, chosen one. I just got the hand-me-down.
Dorian: And what was your mother's first name?
David: My mom won't be coming to the wedding because she's dead.
Dorian: David, why must you make every question I ask you like pulling teeth? Now, I know, I know that, you know, you want to preserve the secrecy out your past life, but really, honey, I don't think your mother's first name is one of yours and Spencer's deep, dark secrets.
David: Emma. My mother's name was Emma Bradley.
Dorian: Emma. Oh, my. That is a beautiful name.
Spencer: Well, it certainly wasn't my intention to crash a Buchanan family party, but the truth is I am doing business with your company. I'm sure your grandson must have filled you in.
Asa: I can't say he has.
Kevin: Spencer and Kelly are working on a grant to fund his medical research, and he managed to take her out a few times while he was at it.
Bo: I'll bring you a little further up to speed, pa. This is Paige's ex-husband.
Asa: You have gotten around, haven't you, doc?
Spencer: Well --
Asa: And you seem to have a taste for Buchanan women.
Spencer: I married a Miller, dated a Cramer. Last time I checked, neither one of them were Buchanan property.
Bo: Excuse me. Buchanan. No. I hadn't heard. I'll be right there. Got to go, pa. It's police business.
Asa: Hmm. You see that, why women love Buchanan men? When they're not too busy trying to take over the world, they're busy saving it.
Starr: I don't like this, mom!
Blair: Starr, let me go and stay out here.
Starr: Mom, she's dangerous! She wants to kill both of us!
Blair: Starr, stop it, I don't care! I want this to be over. I'm tired of living in fear like this! Now, let me go.
Starr: But, mom, no!
Blair: Starr, stop it! Margaret, where are you? Come out if you want a piece of me! Come on out here! Come on out, you coward!
Starr: Mom, she left!
Blair: Damn it.
Starr: It's ok.
Blair: No, it's not ok, Starr! It's not going to be all right until that crazy woman is out of our lives, and I want to know what the hell you're doing here!
Starr: Because Ginger sent me a text message that said for me to meet her at "Craze," but it wasn't Ginger, it was Margaret!
Starr: Because she wanted to kill you and me so that she could be with dad, Jack, and the baby.
Evangeline: So John and I had a D.N.A. test run to see if this guy really was Cristian Vega, but before the results came back, he confessed that he wasn't.
Phil: What were the D.N.A. results?
Evangeline: That's just it -- I don't know. And I assumed that John threw away the report, but he didn't. He kept it in his room, hidden away in a closet. Why would he do that?
Phil: Could be any number of reasons. My question to you is, why do you care what John does? You still holding out hope for the two of you?
Evangeline: No. Just I'm really curious, you know? Is that a bad answer?
Phil: Not if it's the truth.
Evangeline: John moved on with Natalie. I accept that. I can't stop thinking "what if," you know? What if this Cristian hadn't turned out to be an impostor? He and Natalie would still be together right now.
Phil: And you and John would be where?
Evangeline: I don't know. In the exact same place we are now maybe. Or maybe if Natalie hadn't gotten involved, maybe we could've had a chance.
Phil: Yeah, yeah, but, you know, this "what if" game will drive you crazy, Evangeline. Don't play it anymore because, I mean, the fact is this man was an impostor.
Evangeline: But what if he isn't?
Cristian's voice: "Natalie, please understand. I wanted you to believe I was fake because I loved you enough to let you go, to let you find someone who could give you everything I couldn't. Someone you could be with without guards listening to your conversations. Someone to take you in his arms when you got scared or upset, without having bars or a wall of glass between you. Someone like -- someone like --"
John: I'm not sure why things didn't work out between me and Evangeline. But maybe let's not overanalyze this too much.
Natalie: Yeah, well, I guess I tend to do that sometimes. It's a girl thing.
John: You'll get over it.
Natalie: Yeah, well, maybe you're going to have to help me with that.
Natalie: So where were we?
John: Uh -- I don't know, I forgot.
Natalie: Oh, you know, I remember. I think you were telling me how gorgeous I was.
John: I was?
Natalie: Mm-hmm, yep.
John: You know, you should wear your hair like that more often.
Natalie: Oh, what, like I just got out of bed?
Natalie: Ok, buddy, that's it. Show's over.
Todd: What happened here?
Starr: Dad! Margaret tried to kill me!
Todd: Ok, ok, we'll find her, am I all right? I'm not all right! I'm the furthest thing from all right now, Todd!
Todd: Ok, I'm sorry, I shouldn't have let Starr come here. I should've known Margaret-
Blair: Margaret could've killed her! She could've killed our children, Todd! My God, Jack --
Todd: No, no, Jack's fine. I called the bodyguard. Relax.
Blair: What, are you sure?
Todd: Yes. Yes, he's fine.
Starr: Well, tell the bodyguards to hurry up and get over there before Margaret gets to him.
Todd: Starr, your brother is fine. Nobody's going to hurt him.
Blair: She was saying something about Margaret. She said something about you and Jack and the baby. What baby was she talking about?
Starr: Margaret --
Todd: No, no, no, listen -- listen!
Blair: What did she say?
Todd: Now, you know Margaret has been obsessed with having my child. She's been babbling about it from day one, but it is a crazy fantasy. There's not going to be a child. There is no child!
Blair: What --
Bo: What happened here?
Todd: Margaret Cochran happened. She tried to kill my daughter.
Bo: Secure the building. You'd better find Margaret Cochran before Manning does. All right, let's get Starr to the hospital, ok, have her checked out, make sure she's all right.
Blair: Come on, Starr. I'll grab your things.
Rex: Hey! Where you been? What happened to you, man?
Duke: I had some business to take care of.
Rex: Oh, you told Adriana you'd be back in 15 minutes. I guess you lost track of time, huh?
Duke: We closed the Cano deal. Listen, I tried to get out of there, but Asa wanted to celebrate and -- I'm sorry.
Rex: What, they don't have phones there?
Duke: Stay the hell out of this, Rex. Listen, I know I blew it, ok? I promise I'll make it up to you.
Adriana: You know, I think I've been pretty understanding about your work thing, Duke.
Adriana: But tonight was supposed to be special for us.
Duke: And it still can be.
Rex: Well, I did my duty, took the lady home. Later, guys.
Duke: Hang on, Rex. You never answered my question.
Rex: Did you ask a question?
Duke: About the kiss, you know, you and Adriana were talking about, you know, the one that didn't mean anything?
Rex: Oh, yeah. That. There -- there was this chick I used to know at the club. She saw me and planted a big one on me. I thought she was totally hot for me, but Adriana said she was just looking to score some free passes. She's probably right. I think she has a boyfriend, anyway, so my mistake.
Duke: Mm-hmm, that's too bad.
Rex: Yeah, it is. Any other questions?
Rex: Ok, I'm out of there, then . Have a good night.
Duke: Guess it was good Rex was around to take you home, huh?
Adriana: Yeah, it was. I didn't know when you were coming back, or even if you were coming back. You should've called.
Duke: I know, I know, I should've, you're right. I'm sorry. Think there's any way we can ill agtoght?
Duke: You're not mad?
Adriana: Just disappointed. Good night, Duke.
Duke: Good night.
Dorian: So the name of the street you grew up on was rryman?
David: Well, we didn't grow up on any one particular street. Dad wanted to move around a lot.
Dorian: Of course.
David: And my kindergarten teacher -- don't remember her name, but she was very foxy.
David: Old man Mongol lived on the corner. He used to threw quarters into the swimming pool and watch the kids jump in after them. Come to think of it, he was pretty creepy. And then Mrs. Walker drove the school bus. She had a cluster of melanomas on her face in the shape of the spice islands. Anything else you want to know about my childhood?
Dorian: At this point, no. Silly, I want to know everything. Like, for instance, oh, honey, did you and Spencer have any pets?
David: All right, I think that's it. I don't think it's important to know if Spencer and I had a dog named scooter or a cat named bloomers.
Dorian: How about a goldfish?
Dorian: Oh, honey, wait a minute, don't leave! I've got the valet parking ticket. David -- "bubbles"?
Kevin: If you're worried about the funding for your project, the Cano deal won't affect that.
Asa: No, hang on there, son. I, uh -- I don't feel very comfortable doing business with somebody I don't know. I think we should find out a little more about Mr. Spencer Truman.
Spencer: Well, I'll put my resume up against anyone's, Mr. Buchanan, including yours.
Asa: Is that so?
Spencer: You know, perhaps I should be checking into your background. From what I understand, you have quite the reputation.
Asa: And you strike me as a guy who already knows what he needs to know.
Spencer: You know, I read in the paper that the Cano deal was dead in the water. How'd you ever manage to pull it off?
Asa: We're Buchanans, doc. We can do anything.
Todd: Hey, hey. My daughter was attacked. She might have a concussion. Need your help here. She's right here.
Doctor: Let's get her into cubicle one.
Todd: Blair, Blair --
Blair: Come on, Starr. No, I'm going with my daughter.
Todd: We'll be right here.
Blair: No, I'm not leaving her side, Todd.
Starr: Guys, will you stop fighting?
Blair: Look, I'm sorry, Starr, but you gave us a scare, all right, honey?
Starr: Margaret did all the scaring.
Todd: Come on.
Blair: Starr --
Starr: I'm going to be ok.
Blair: Ok, well, I'll just -- we'll be out here waiting if you need us, all right?
Todd: It's going to be ok. Margaret's going to pay for this. I'm never going to let her do this to us again.
Dorian: Youíre not still upset with me, are you?
David: Well, that depends on how many more items you plan on adding to our wedding to-do list.
Dorian: Honey, no more, I promise.
David: Well, good. Iíve got a suggestion. Why don't we stop working on our wedding and start working on our wedding night? Practice makes perfect, you know.
Dorian: And you are so perfect already.
David: Shall we go upstairs?
Dorian: Yes, but first, how about a little sorbet? You know how I like something sweet before I go to bed.
David: Sorbet? We just ate. I'm full as a wood tick.
Dorian: Well, why don't you go upstairs, and I'll be up in a minute, ok? Promise, mm-hmm. Ooh, yummy, yummy, yummy. I think we have some peach sorbet.
Dorian: Ok. Um, let's try -- yes, the first password. A word. Mother's maiden name. "Bradley." Yes! No. Ok, um -- her first name. Emma. "E-m-m-a." All right, baby, go. Wow.
Spencer: You're awfully proud of your family, aren't you, Mr. Buchanan?
Asa: You're damn right, doc, and with good reason.
Spencer: It must be nice to have that to fall back on when things aren't going your way.
Asa: Well, money, power, all the rest it, it comes and goes. But family you can always count on.
Spencer: Well, some of us, anyway. It's been a real pleasure meeting you, Mr. Buchanan. You're everything I thought you'd be and then some, and congratulations on the Cano merger. It's been a real coup for the Buchanan family.
Asa: Ah, what the hell. Nice of you to say so.
Spencer: Yeah, I know it was.
Asa: Kevin? What the hell was that all about?
Kevin: Beats me. But from what little I know about Spencer Truman, he's up to something.
Asa: I do not like him.
Kevin: You and me both, grandpa. It's not just because he tried to take Kelly away from me. I don't trust the guy.
Asa: Well, we're going to have to keep an eye on him.
John: Hey, you still there?
Natalie: I'm back.
John: Was it something I said?
Natalie: No, I just thought I would get a couple of things so I could level the playing field. Are you?
John: Oh, I don't believe you're going to be able to see me, not with those little opera glasses of yours. They're not exactly as strong as police-issue.
Natalie: Guess I'm going to have to use my imaginioion, then.
John: Works for me.
Cristian's voice: "All my love, Cristian."
John: Take him. Go.
Natalie: I wish you were dead!
Phil: So you believe Natalie's husband is still alive and john's been keeping that secret?
Evangeline: Yes. No. I -- I don't know.
Phil: Why would he?
Evangeline: If Natalie knew the truth, she'd go running back to Cristian.
Phil: That doesn't sound like the man you described to me.
Evangeline: It's not. That's not John at all. That's why I -- that's why I have to know the truth.
Phil: Is that the only reason? Let's say you do find out he really is Cristian Vega. What happens then?
Evangeline: I don't know. I'll just have to figure that out when I get there.
Phil: Meaning you are going to have that D.N.A. information analyzed?
Evangeline: I have to.
Blair: I should be in there with her, Todd.
Todd: She's going to be ok. I know she is.
Blair: Bo. Did you find her? Did you find Margaret?
Bo: No, I'm sorry, Blair.
Blair: Well, you've got to do something. She's just going to wait around until we make another mistake.
Todd: How is she?
Doctor: Well, there's no concussion. Your daughter got a pretty nasty bump on her head, but she'll be all right physically. Emotionally, it may take a little more time.
Todd: Ok, I'd like a moment with her, please.
Todd: Hi, shorty. Are you going to be ok?
Starr: No. I'm not. Margaret said that she was pregnant and that it was your baby. Is that true?
>> On the next "One Life to Live" --
Antonio: I know why I wanted to do this. What's in it for you?
Tess: You have to love me more than Antonio loved Jessica.
Bo: If he takes out Margaret, then I'm going to have to charge him with murder.
Starr: Is Margaret having your baby?
