One Life to Live Transcript Monday 10/24/05
Proofread by Brandi
Blair: Margaret's pregnant?
Blair: You liar.
Ginger: I am not lying. I swear, I saw her six weeks ago, and she was definitely -- it was obvious. Starr saw her. Ask her. She knows.
Layla: We have an emergency.
Viki: I am so sorry. I should have seen the signs. Of all people, I should have known.
Tess: No argument here.
Viki: Jessica --
Viki: Tess, I'm sorry. Please tell me what happened. Why does Jessica need an alter? What was it that she couldn't face?
Tess: You're the one that can't seem to face it.
Viki: Me? Do you mean that I was there, when you came to be? Are you saying that I caused this?
John: You know what? While you're down there, do me a favor and bring me everything we got on Carlo Hesser.
Officer: He's already doing life, John.
John: Just do it, Nick, all right? And dig through the archives.
Nick: I'll get right on it.
Man: You look like hell, son.
John: Comes with the job. You should know.
Man: When's the last time you got a decent night's sleep?
John: Well, now, if I knew that, I wouldn't be having a conversation with a dead man, would I?
Man: John, if you haven't noticed, you have trouble opening up to people who are alive. That's why I'm here.
John: Guilty as charged.
Man: What were you trying to tell me the last time I was here?
John: Oh -- something about a bomb about to go off between me and natalie.
Man: Yeah. And?
John: Fire in the hole.
Natalie: I know everything.
Cristian: You know?
Natalie: Even though everyone was trying to keep the big secret.
Cristian: Well, who told you?
Natalie: What difference does it make? I would have found out eventually anyway.
Cristian: I didn't want you thinking about me. You know, especially with --
Natalie: You think that I spend my time thinking about you? No. No, no, I do not think about you, because I don't want to lug around all the pain and agony that comes along with it. The only memories that I want to hang on to are of the real Cristian. You look just like him. But you are nothing like him. All you have done is cause pain to everyone that loved him -- his brother, Antonio, his mother, Carlotta, and me, and now you want to come back here and you want to start hurting us all over again? I don't think so. Ok? Now that I found happiness in my life, I'll be damned if I let some creep come in there and take it all away from me. So don't even try to come between me and John.
Man: Is this just about Natalie?
John: No. No. It's -- it's about everyone. It's about Cris and keeping the promise that I made to him.
John: And Evangeline and doing what's right for her.
Man: And Natalie.
John: Natalie. You know, I don't even know what she is doing with a guy like me, dad, after everything she's been through.
John's father: Are you going to let her down?
John: I let everybody down, don't I? Yeah, I'll break her heart one more time. But what to do? She thought Cris was dead, and he thought it was better to leave it that way.
John's father: Why am I here, John?
John: I don't know. Got any advice, old man? Does Natalie deserve to know it's really him, even if he's not released?
John's father: You mean you're going to hide it from her?
John: Honestly, dad, I don't know.
John's father: John, you're a cop that's always had good instincts. Those instincts have never failed you.
John: This has nothing to do with being a cop. This is about being a --
John's father: A man.
Duke: Your bet, grandpa.
Asa: I'll check.
Kevin: Five bucks.
David: Ok, let's make it 10.
Duke: I fold.
Matthew: Is the 10 to me?
Duke: Yep, $10 to you. And 10 to you, grandpa.
Asa: I know what it is to me. I'm considering a raise. Make it 50.
Kevin: Don't you think that's a little steep for Matthew, grandpa?
Asa: Kevin, if the kid wants to play with the big boys, he's just going to have to learn how to bet with the big boys.
Bo: Can't do it.
David: 40 to me?
Spencer: That's $40 to you, Davey. That's four blue ones, eight red ones, or 40 of the little white ones.
Kevin: All right.
Matthew: I'll see you and raise two? Five?
Asa: Duke, let the boy play his own hand.
Duke: Just scratching my arm, grandpa.
Matthew: Everything? I'll raise 33.
Asa: Matthew, are you trying to sandbag your grandpa?
Matthew: You did it, too, grandpa.
Asa: I'm in.
Kevin: Hmm. I know. All right. I call.
Asa: Three ladies.
Matthew: What am I supposed to say?
Duke: "Read 'em and weep."
Bo: There you go.
Matthew: Read 'em and weep, grandpa.
Asa: I'll be damned. It's a straight. Where'd you learn to play?
Matthew: On the computer.
Asa: Matthew, as much as I hate to lose, at least I'm proud that you are a real Buchanan.
Kevin: Well, here's to being a Buchanan.
Duke: Hear, hear.
Asa: To Matthew.
Spencer: What a beautiful moment this is, huh? That's what it's all about, having a chance to get together and bond with our families.
Ginger: Go on, Starr, tell them. Tell them aunt Margaret is having a baby.
Starr: I don't want to talk about Margaret, ok? I don't want to think about that night ever again.
Blair: You know what? It's all right, sweetie. You've already told us everything that you need to tell us, all right?
Ginger: No, she didn't.
Blair: You don't have to say anything, Starr, ok?
Ginger: I just want her to tell the truth, that's all.
Adriana: You wouldn't know the truth if it punched you in the face. After all the lies that you told Blair, you expect her to believe you now? You're just making this whole thing up to get back at her for firing you.
Ginger: You're just getting in my face because Duke kissed me. I admit I lied, but I am not lying right now.
Dorian: Ok. I am not going to let this ruin my party. Let's put it to rest. Starr, tell everyone. You saw Margaret, and she is most definitely not pregnant.
Starr: I already told you all the important things there is to know about Margaret.
Dorian: Right, and Margaret being pregnant would definitely be important. If it isn't, then I don't know what is, so case closed. The story is over. Goodbye, Ginger.
Ginger: I am so sorry I lied to your family. If nothing else, I hope you believe that I really cared about you all, especially you.
Blair: Hey, hey, hey. You all right?
Starr: I don't want to answer any more questions about Margaret, ok? I'm going to the bathroom.
Dorian: Oh, how could that filthy little tramp make up a lie like that? But she's good. I tell you, she had me going -- well, especially when you consider the fact that Margaret did rape Todd.
Blair: I told you that in confidence, Dorian.
Dorian: I didn't betray your confidence.
Blair: Yes, you did.
Dorian: Kelly knows all about the alleged incident.
Dorian: Ok, the important thing is --
Dorian: Margaret is not pregnant, ok? And thank heaven for that, because what a nightmare that would be for you.
Ginger: Why are you being so nice to me?
Rex: Because I believe you.
Ginger: No way.
Rex: Yes, way. And since the cops kind of want me to help them out, why don't you redeem yourself by telling me everything you can.
Officer: Can I help you?
Todd: Yes. My newspaper's willing to post a reward for information on the killer of the woman and her baby.
Todd: And I know we're going to get barraged with crackpot tips and -- so I was thinking if we could get some specific information, some things that the general public may not know, we could weed out the bogus calls. What have you got so far?
Officer: Sorry, I can only tell the press what the commissioner has released.
Todd: Hmm. Ok. Well, I'll just wait around till my other reporter gets here.
Antonio: Is it Jamie?
Antonio: Then whatever it is, it can wait till I find Jessica.
Layla: Not this time. The social worker called.
Antonio: What did she want?
Layla: To meet me now at The Palace. I don't think she's buying our arrangement.
Antonio: Ok, don't say anything until I get there.
Layla: Well, hurry up.
Antonio: I'm on my way.
Viki: Please, we have to talk about what happened to jessica, please.
Tess: Well, I don't want to talk about the past.
Viki: But we have to make you whole.
Tess: "Whole"? Don't you mean transform me into Jessica?
Viki: No. I mean integrate both of you.
Tess: You know, if you want Jessica back, you might as well kill me now and get it over with, because that's what's going to happen. I'll be dead anyway.
Viki: No, no, that's not true.
Tess: You know, you don't understand. I have a life with love, I have happiness, and I'm not going to throw that all away for her.
Viki: No, you don't understand. If you let me get you the help that you need, I promise you -- I swear to you, you will not disappear. You will become a part of Jessica, an integral part. You'll be -- you'll make her confident and strong and --
Tess: I don't want to be a part of anybody, especially some mealy-mouthed --
Viki: But don't you understand that you are Jessica and she is you? And I love you. I love both of you. I love every part of you.
Tess: Stop it. God, this is too hard --
Viki: Jessie -- Jessie, are you there?
Tess: I won't let you --
Jessica's voice: Mom.
Nash: Tess! I've been looking everywhere for you. I'm taking you home.
Viki: No! Jessica?
John: Well, my instincts came into any of this -- it sure as hell isn't any black or white, only gray. Many get hurt. There's no avoiding it. I just don't have the answers to who's going to get hurt or how much.
John's father: When you're trying to solve a case, what do you look for?
John's father: Ok ok
John: You mean why have I waited so long to tell Natalie everything?
John's father: Why have you worked so hard to protect Cristian?
John: Because at the end of the day I want to do the right thing.
Cristian: So that's it. You don't want me getting out of here because you think it'll mess up your relationship with that cop.
Natalie: Among other reasons.
Cristian: You must really love him.
Natalie: That is none of your business. But John -- he's everything you're not. You destroy people, things, relationships. You nearly destroyed me. Thank God John was there and he helped pick up all the pieces that you tore apart and put them back together. Oh, and, yes, I do love John.
Cristian: And I saw what I did to you. And I prayed every day that you found love again.
Natalie: Then god answered both our prayers.
Cristian: I'm sorry, but I have to ask. Do you love Mc Bain as much as you loved Cristian?
Nash: Tess, are you ok?
Nash: Ok, let's go home.
Viki: No, please! Please don't take her away! Believe me, you don't know what you're dealing with!
Nash: "What I'm dealing with"? When will you people stop telling me that?
Tess: Let's just go. Don't listen to her.
Viki: Ok, fine, you don't have to listen to me. You can just run away, because I certainly can't chase you. Please.
Nash: I'm listening.
Viki: I'd like to speak with you alone.
Tess: No, Nash, let's go. Don't listen to her.
Nash: All right, just calm down, just calm down. Listen to me. There is nothing that she can say that'll change the way I feel about you, nothing. All right? So I'm going to talk to her for a minute. You just wait over here for a minute, ok? Don't worry. Don't go disappearing on me again, ok?
Tess: I don't want to.
Nash: All right, good.
Viki: My daughter is very, very sick.
Nancy: I wasn't expecting to see you here, Antonio.
Layla: Well, where you'll find one of us, you'll usually find the other.
Antonio: Hello, Nancy.
Nancy: I wanted to spend a little time with Layla to talk about your relationship.
Layla: Well, here it is.
Nancy: I'm glad to see you're doing so well together. I was afraid you'd hit a little rough go there, considering Antonio's ex-girlfriend has been spending nights at his loft.
Dorian: All I wanted was a lovely, exciting, but tasteful little bachelorette party, and that -- that disgusting little slut comes in and muddies the waters and, of course, my matron of honor, Victoria, fails to show up at all and Adriana goes running off somewhere and -- for goodness sakes, where is Kelly and Starr?
Kelly: Hey, baby. Give me a call when you're done with your bachelor party. Bye. Hey. Are you all right?
Starr: Oh, that was awful.
Blair: Hey. What are you two whispering about out here?
Kelly: Nothing. I'm going to go freshen up.
Blair: Is there something that you want to tell me, honey?
Dorian: Hello, Viki, this is Dorian. How shall I put it? I think you've got a lot of gall ruining my bachelorette party.
Officer: Dorian Lord?
Dorian: Excuse me. I'm on the phone. Furthermore -- excuse -- pardon me. What is your problem?
Officer: My problem right now, ma'am, is you and your party.
Dorian: You call this a party?
Officer: No, ma'am. That's the problem. That's why I'm taking you downtown. I'm going to book you, as a prisoner of love.
Dorian: What --
Singer: Ok ok oh, oh, yeah, yeah
Singers: Over, over colder, colder
Singer: Yeah, yeah
Singers: Over, over colder, colder
Kelly: Oh, my goodness.
Singers: Over, over colder, colder
Asa: Three deuces.
David: That's just great. This has been a lot of fun. It's my bachelor party. I'm the first one out.
Spencer: Matthew's been out for a while.
David: Yeah, but he's just a little kid. No offense, little kid.
Matthew: It's ok.
Kevin: What do you got, Truman?
Spencer: Well, I can't beat trip deuces. You know, if it's any consolation, Davey, you can still deal.
David: Oh, ok. I like to deal.
Kevin: I don't think that's a good idea.
David: What, do you think I'm going to cheat? For who, my brother? Whom I love -- like a distant, unlikable cousin.
Asa: He's ok, Kevin. He couldn't do anything I wouldn't spot.
[Knock on door]
Bo: I got a feeling that's got to be for me.
Bo: Why, Balsom, come in.
Bo: What's going on?
Rex: I got something on the Cochran case.
Bo: Why don't we take a break, guys?
Kevin: Yeah, I could use one.
Bo: What do you got?
Rex: Uh -- oh.
David: I'm through, Spencer. From here on in, you're on your own.
Spencer: Fair enough.
David: No, I'm serious. I am tired of this.
Spencer: Davey, this is your element.
David: Not anymore.
Spencer: I beg to differ. Once in the game, always in the game. It's just a slightly different level, that's all.
David: What were your down cards?
David: That was a $5,000 pot, Spencer.
Spencer: No, it's more like 6,000, actually, but you know how it's done. Just give them enough rope --
David: Asa's the only one who's reading your tell.
Spencer: Asa's the only one I want.
Rex: All right, Ginger swears that Margaret is preggers. Now, Starr won't back it up, but I think she's hedging so that Blair won't be hurt.
Bo: So your friend in the alley came through?
Rex: My acquaintance -- it was definitely Margaret he saw.
Bo: All right, well, if this is true, this changes a lot. Plus, it re-enforces my theory.
Rex: You think she's the dead woman in the lake?
Rex: All right, well, look on the bright side, Bo. There'll be one less psycho criminal on the streets.
Bo: No, Balsom. What it means is now we have a murderer.
Kevin: So what are your thoughts on Spencer?
Asa: The guy's a snake. And the key to dealing with a snake -- just stay short of his striking distance. But when he strikes, cut his head off. And it's damn easy when you know what his tell is.
David: How do you want to work this deal?
Spencer: Just lay back and I'll find a place to work you in as dealer.
David: I'll deal Asa pocket rockets. It'll take him to the wheel. I'll deal you a low boat, 3s full of 2s. But I'm telling you, Spencer, this is the last time.
Bo: Duty calls. Matthew, listen, I know that you still blame me for your mom being in the hospital, all right? I want to talk to you about that, so maybe we'll go on a long walk tomorrow. In the meantime, I want you to promise me you're not going to run away again, ok?
Matthew: I promise.
Bo: All right. I'll hold you to that. Now, how would you like to go by the hospital and say good night to your mom?
Matthew: I'd like that.
Bo: Ok, come on, I'll drop you off at the hospital, then Marianne will take you home, ok? We're out of here.
Duke: See you later, buddy.
Bo: Good luck, guys.
Asa: Good night, Bo, Matthew. Oh! Ok, enough of all the lollygagging.
Asa: Let's get down to business. That is if you still want to take my money, Truman.
Officer: The commissioner wants a search of every location where Margaret Cochran might have been, including St. Ann's. Maybe she left a comb or a toothbrush behind when she was a patient there.
Second officer: What are we looking for?
First officer: Anything that might have her D.N.A. on it.
Todd: Sounds like you guys got a lead.
Todd: What's up, Blair?
Blair: Look, I need to see you now.
Todd: I'm in the middle of something. We'll talk when I get home.
Blair: No, now. It's something that Ginger said.
John: Bottom line, this Cris is Natalie's husband, and I'm not sure what'll happen if he goes free. But I have to know.
John's father: What do you need to know? If Natalie's love for you is as strong as it is for Cristian?
John: Well, I haven't really given it much thought, but that's probably a good question.
John's father: And you'll get your answer if Cristian goes free?
John: I guess so.
John's father: Well, I guess there's only one way to make sure that happens.
John: Help Cris.
John's father: But you may be destroying your own chance at happiness.
Natalie: How dare you ask me to compare my feelings for John and Cristian. You don't even have a right to speak their names. You are completely incapable of understanding the power of my love for Cristian and my love for John. My personal life is off-limits to you.
Cristian: Then why did you come here?
Natalie: Do you have any idea how many lives you will ruin if you're set free? You may never step foot in Llanview again, but we'll know that you're out there -- a killer who looks exactly like Cristian, and that is exactly what you are. You are a killer. You belong here in Statesville, locked up, never getting out, so I am asking you -- no, I'm begging you, please, please stop working on your appeal.
Asa: And the river.
Kevin: All right, check.
Duke: All right, I'm all in. I've got 200, 400, 600, 840. 840. So I understand you're not going to do that procedure on Kelly.
Spencer: Well, I won't perform the procedure without the proper instruments. Till I get my hands on a Hershine laser, I won't do it.
Asa: What are you two talking about?
Duke: Oh, Kelly wants a procedure that could help her keep a baby to term.
Asa: Well, Kevin, it'd be real nice for the Buchanan’s to have another foal in the stables.
Kevin: Well, there are risks, grandpa. I, for one, am glad that it was canceled.
Kevin: You know what? I call.
Spencer: No, I'm -- I'm out.
Asa: Three 7s.
Asa: And another one bites the dust. Sorry to see you go, Duke.
Duke: Oh, I guess I'll be joining David in the losers' lounge.
Kevin: Well, you're welcome to stick around and deal, if you want.
Duke: Yeah, nah. I'm a little too tired for that.
Spencer: Well, it is David's bachelor party. Hey, David, if you'd grace us with your presence, we'll let you deal.
Asa: Why don't you admit when you're beaten?
Spencer: Oh, I wouldn't dream of quitting, Asa. In fact, I'm in till the bitter end.
Dorian: Adriana? Hey.
Dorian: Ooh, that's it? So sudden. Oh, my god! Can we hear a hand for him?
Dorian: Oh, well done. Thank you, thank you so much for taking a party that -- ahem -- lacked a little sizzle. And thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Blair: Here is your belt.
Stripper: My pleasure.
Blair: And your handcuffs.
Dorian: And your boom box.
Dorian: Bye! Oh, what fun, fun, fun.
Blair: Oh, his shirt. Here's your shirt!
Dorian: He doesn't need it! He looks good like that!
Kelly: Oh, my gosh.
Kelly: So, did you hire, invite the -- whatever?
Blair: That was you.
Kelly: No, it wasn't me. Adriana?
Adriana: Yeah, right! Starr?
Starr: It was not me. Dorian?
Dorian: Well, come on. You know, I had to add a little excitement. I mean, this is supposed to be a bachelorette party, not a wake.
Nancy: You're surprised. Somehow I don't think Jessica Buchanan sleeping over is something Jamie ought to be subjected to.
Antonio: I tried to explain --
Nancy: You're not supposed to be here, Antonio.
Layla: Well, then I'll explain. I was surprised -- not that Jessica's staying at our place, because I knew that. I was surprised that you would insinuate there was something kinky going on.
Nancy: Please, go on.
Layla: Well, Jessica was a big part of Jamie's life, so we thought it would be great if they saw each other. She came over and started to feel ill, so we thought it would be better if she didn't drive, then she slept over -- on the couch. End of story.
Nancy: Is that what happened, Antonio?
Antonio: I couldn't have explained it better myself.
Nancy: So you have no romantic feelings toward Jessica?
Viki: There's something very wrong with Jessica.
Nash: What? What is so wrong with her?
Viki: Look, you don't know her.
Nash: That's what Antonio keeps telling me, yeah.
Viki: And he's right.
Nash: I may not know your Jessica, but with all due respect, ma'am, you don't know Tess. She wants a chance at a fresh start at life, and she's given me that same chance. I know what's important to her, and I know enough about her. She's having my baby, and I promise you, I'm going to take care of them both. Look, we have a future together. We're happy. That's something she doesn't share with that -- that Antonio.
Viki: Haven't you seen the signs? Hasn't she disappeared for hours and days at a time? Look, it's very complicated to explain, but she needs help, and it's help that I can get for her.
Nash: If she needs help, I can give it to her. I love her.
Viki: I believe that you do, and I believe that you would want what's best for her.
Nash: You got that right.
Viki: Then let her go. Please, let her stay here with her family and get the best of care. If you really love her, leave her here.
Nick: This is everything we've got on Hesser.
Nick: I hope you find what you're looking for.
John: So do I.
Natalie: When you were sleeping with me, pretending to be Cristian, you said that you cared about me and that you wanted me to be happy.
Cristian: I meant it. I do care about you.
Natalie: Then please, do as I ask and drop your appeal.
Cristian: I promise you, no phony Cristian Vega will be walking out those doors.
Natalie: Thank you.
Cristian: Guard? I need to see my lawyer.
Nancy: Well? Do you still have strong feelings for Jessica?
Layla: Listen, I can guarantee you that Jessica is in no way a hazard to our relationship.
Antonio: That's right.
Nancy: Well, then, I guess that's it. I'll be in touch.
Antonio: Bye-bye. Great.
Layla: Why didn't you tell me that she caught you --
Antonio: I wasn't -- I wasn't thinking.
Layla: Ok, well, we have to be more careful. This woman is going to keep dropping in on us day and night until she catches us at something. We have six months, Antonio. We have got to watch ourselves.
Antonio: Ok, all right.
Layla: How's Jessica?
Antonio: I have to find her. I have to bring her back home, make sure she stays for good this time.
Viki: Please. Please, I love her, too, and I beg of you, for her own well-being, please leave her here.
Tess: Are we going or not?
Nash: Yeah. We're going.
Starr: Look, it's --
Dorian: Everything you got me is so gorgeous, and a lot of it's awfully naughty. David's going to love it.
Blair: You even got the instructions.
Dorian: We don't need the instructions. Thank you. All right, you know what time it is! Well, it's time for the Cramer girl group hug! Come on, everybody!
Blair: Oh --
Dorian: Oh, I need some love. I need to feel it. Come on. Get up, Blair.
Dorian: Ooh, I love you! Oh, I love you all. Blair --
Adriana: Oh, this is bad.
Kelly: These are bad.
Starr: Dad, dad, I need to talk to you. It's really important. What --
Blair: Let's go home and talk.
Todd: You mentioned on the phone something about Ginger.
Bo: Todd, Blair, I'm glad you're still here. With your permission, I'd like to ask Starr a few questions.
>> On the next “One Life to Live" --
Bo: Nowhere in your statement do you mention that Margaret Cochran is pregnant.
Viki: If you go after Tess and Nash, we will never see Jessica again.
Nash: I am not getting on that plane till I get some real answers out of you.
