One Life to Live Transcript Tuesday 1/3/06
Proofread by Brandi
Tess: Nash? Nash? Nash? Nash?
Nash: I'm never going to let you go.
Tess: I'm never going to let you go.
Adriana: I want you so bad I can't stand it.
Kelly: Still no bars. Damn it, these things are useless! Duke! Are you crazy?
Spencer: Just a few more minutes, cowboy. And then the fun really begins.
Clint: I keep getting Viki's voicemail.
Dorian: Do you suppose that Niki knows Viki's access code?
Clint: If anything happens to Viki tonight, I am blaming you.
Dorian: Oh --
David: You want to spend New Year's Eve with me?
David: What did you have in mind?
Niki: Well, you are one fine-looking gentleman, and I think it's a tragedy that you're single tonight.
David: So you want to help me not be single?
Niki: Mm-hmm. Come on. Let's dance.
David: Uh -- Viki, this isn't that kind of bar.
Niki: So what?
David: You're not that kind of multimillionaire.
Niki: I am now. Oh, David, come on. Show me some moves, ok? I really -- I want to be free tonight. Come on. Come on, dance with me, David. Come on.
Todd: You look serious.
Blair: It's almost 2006 and I'm not bringing in the New Year without you.
Evangeline: Trying to decide how to spend New Year's Eve?
Natalie's voice: I think you should only marry someone if you love them. And I think love should be forever.
Cristian: I love you. And I believe in forever. You shouldn't be alone on New Year's Eve.
Kevin: What happened? Who did this to me?
Spencer: Wake up, Asa. Welcome to your nightmare.
Asa: Everything seems like it -- like it's moving.
Spencer: You're hallucinating. But don't you dare black out on me until I've finished with you.
Spencer: You know, I love being a doctor, making the world a better place one Buchanan at a time. And two of them in the same evening. Now, that's what I call a good night's work.
Dorian: It's not my fault Niki Smith is back out. I had nothing to do with it.
Clint: Aside from the fact that you opened the door.
Dorian: Hey, hold it right there. Viki tricked me into it. Now, how many times do I have to tell you that before it gets through that thick cowboy skull of yours?
Clint: Listen to this sentence. Viki gave you permission to date me. You didn't find that the least bit bizarre?
Dorian: No. It's not like we haven't done it before. You dated me before you dated Viki. And look at us. We're both still attractive, fun.
Clint: Dorian, this is not about our eligibility, all right? Now, what would Viki really say if you said you were interested in me?
Dorian: Time-out. Me interested in you? Oh, no, no, no. The vibe I got was that you are interested in me.
Clint: Damn it, woman, focus on what's being said. How could you not realize that you were dealing with Niki Smith?
Dorian: I guess I just wasn't paying attention.
Clint: Well, thank you. At least that's an honest answer.
Dorian: You're welcome.
Renee: Oh, Clint, thank God I finally tracked you down.
Clint: What's wrong? Is it pa?
Renee: Not Asa, Viki. She's -- darling, this is hard for me to say, but if I didn't know better -- she's here in the bar and I think that you should get over here very soon before she makes a terrible mistake.
Clint: Renee, what is going on?
Renee: She's dancing, and I think that you need to see it.
John: What drags you down here? I thought you'd be out celebrating with everyone else.
Evangeline: I wish I could say the same about you.
John: Not in a celebrating mood, so -- I got to catch up on some work.
Evangeline: It's New Year's Eve.
John: My second least favorite holiday.
Evangeline: Not glad to see the old year go?
John: I don't think it's going to be any better than the last one.
Evangeline: It has to be.
John: Well, for now I'm stuck trying to sort through all the drunks. I remember the old man used to call this amateur night.
Evangeline: Well, it may be for amateurs, but it's also really depressing to spend alone, so -- are these clean?
John: I think so. Why?
Evangeline: This is why.
Natalie: So, why are you wandering around Angel Square with a bottle of booze?
Cristian: Thinking positive, I guess.
Natalie: Looking for me?
Cristian: What, you came here to talk to the statue?
Natalie: I don't know. I just -- I ended up here, I guess.
Cristian: Well, then, me, too. Blame it on fate if you want. You know, this is supposed to be pretty good stuff. Set me back 12 bucks.
Natalie: Cold duck?
Cristian: Yep. Roxy's favorite.
Natalie: Oh, so you came here to see her. Well, she's on a cruise. You know, a bottle of cold duck on a cold night under a cold statue -- it calls for a mean hangover in the morning.
Cristian: Well, it beats spending New Year's in a cell at Statesville.
Natalie: Beats a lot of things, Cristian.
Natalie: So what do we toast to?
Man: Hey, what's the matter? Car broke down?
Kevin: Yeah. Something happened. I woke up in the snow. I passed out or something.
Man: Ok. You look kind of wasted.
Kevin: I haven't had anything to drink, I swear it. I just passed out in the snow, see?
Man: Ok. Well, come on. Let's go. Where do I have to take you?
Kevin: I have to see Kelly. Just get me to Kelly.
Kelly: You are insane. Take that shirt off. You're soaking wet. You're going to catch pneumonia, for God's sake. If all those rags you put under the wheels didn't give us traction, what made you think your jacket would?
Duke: Well, I had to try something. We're going to freeze out here if we don't get this thing moving.
Kelly: We still have heat.
Kelly: Someone's bound to come along soon. Here, let me help you.
Duke: In a blizzard on a holiday? I wouldn't count on it.
Kelly: Turn the heat up.
Duke: No, we can't. We're going to run out of gas. We got to turn it off. I should have filled up in Llanview.
Kelly: Well, we're not going anywhere now, so you better just sit back and get used to it, cowboy. Here. Take this.
Duke: No, hey. No, no, no, no, no, no. You're barely wearing anything as it is.
Kelly: Yeah, well, I meant to inspire Kevin with this dress.
Duke: Yeah, well, while that dress may inspire a dead guy, it's not too useful in this situation.
Kelly: Silk's warmer than you think. Take the coat.
Duke: No, hey -- we'll share it.
Kelly: All right. I can't believe this. Hmm.
Adriana: Aren't you going to say anything?
Rex: Um --
Adriana: I just told you I want you, a lot.
Rex: Yeah, and you have a boyfriend. I'm just the transportation, remember?
Adriana: Duke has never made me feel like this before.
Rex: How is that?
Adriana: I really want to touch you.
Rex: Look, we're stuck out here all alone. It's freezing cold. It's just your survival instincts kicking in. Continue the species at all costs.
Adriana: It's not that and you know it. I feel like you and I were --
Adriana: Yeah. Do you feel it, too?
Todd: You know, we really should be married, spending New Year's together that way.
Blair: We're together now. That's all that matters.
Todd: This really isn't together, though, is it? I'm wondering whether I'm going to get fried for something I didn't do.
Blair: I am not -- look at me. I'm not going to let that happen.
Todd: It's your will against everyone else's, though.
Blair: Oh, come on. Like they're a match for us?
Todd: Oh, God, I should be out there, helping you through this.
Blair: I love you, Todd. And I'm with you now. And that helps me.
Todd: I'm so sorry.
Tess: I can't let you go. I can't let Jessica come back out again.
Nash: Tess --
Tess: I don't care what you promised her, Nash. This is too hard. It's wrong.
Nash: I agree.
Tess: Ok. Ok, so what do we do? I know that -- that we got to get me away from -- as far away from her family as possible, because they're not going to quit till they get rid of me.
Nash: All right, you know what? Don't worry about that, not tonight. Tonight it's just the two of us. All right? I just want to be close to you. I want to make love to you. I want to forget about everybody and everything else. It's just the two of us, ok?
Tess: But --
Nash: No, shh. Tomorrow. We'll face whatever and whoever we have to tomorrow. Just -- tonight. Tess, I love you more than I've ever loved anybody. You're the only person I've ever really loved.
Tess: Take me away from this awful place now.
Spencer: Yeah, I can just see the headlines. "Commissioner Bo Buchanan gets life for conspiracy." "Businessman Clint Buchanan indicted on 20 counts of bank fraud." "The end of an empire. Ex-pol Kevin Buchanan declares bankruptcy for company and family." And the coup de grace -- "B.E. Scion Duke Buchanan found dead. Suicide suspected."
David: Vik, I got an idea. Why don't we stop hopping and have some coffee. Doesn't coffee sound like a great idea?
Niki: Coffee? What, are you nuts? You're starting to sound like Clint.
David: God forbid.
Niki: Well, what happened to you, David. You used to be a lot of fun.
David: Viki, you know what happened.
Niki: Yeah, Dorian, that harpy. Yeah, you can show her you still got the moves. Ah, you know what? Powder room, ok? Don't go away. I'll be right back. Hello, hi.
David: Uh -- wha--
Renee: I know. Something's wrong.
David: Do you think it's her heart or her liver?
Renee: The bartender said she had only the one drink. She shouldn't be drinking at all.
David: Well, what do you think? Should we call her girls or maybe Kevin?
Renee: I called Clint. He's on his way.
David: I don't know about that. It's kind of like telling tales out of school. Calling the ex? I don't think so.
Dorian: What's going on?
Renee: Oh, reinforcements.
Dorian: Renee called me with this ridiculous fabrication that you were dirty dancing with Viki?
Renee: Are you suggesting that I made this up?
Clint: Renee, where is Viki?
Niki: No, you -- wait --
Man: Ma'am, I -- I have got to get back to my friends.
Niki: Damn it.
Niki: Damn it.
Rex: Are you sure about this? You have to be really sure. We can't keep going down this road.
Adriana: We're not going anywhere right now. We're stuck in a snowstorm on New Year's Eve and no one knows we're here.
Rex: It's not a good enough reason to do this.
Adriana: Rex, it's not why. I have been fighting the way I feel about you for so long. Months. And every time we get close, I decide to go back to Duke, try to make it work. But then, every time Duke and I get close to -- this, something stops us. And I end up back with you. Even tonight.
Rex: This can't be about Duke. It has to be --
Adriana: I know. It has to be about you and me, no one else. Do you think this is fate?
Rex: Yeah, fate. Or more trouble than either of us bargained for.
Adriana: I thought you liked trouble.
Rex: Look, if you don't back away right now --
Adriana: I don't care.
Rex: Neither do I.
John: I got to tell you, I don't think I've ever had champagne this good. Or this expensive.
Evangeline: Well, you know I'd never bring anything less than the best.
John: Hmm. The glassware leaves a little bit to be desired. Kind of like me.
Evangeline: I don't think that.
John: Bo thinks I need to see a shrink.
Evangeline: What? Why?
John: You want the top 10 reasons in order or just randomly?
Evangeline: I'm actually more interested in why you agreed.
John: It's that or I turn over my badge.
Evangeline: You want an unsolicited opinion?
John: Well --
Evangeline: I think it's a really good idea.
John: How did I know you were going to say that?
Evangeline: And that has nothing to do with what happened between you and I. You've had a hell of a year, not to mention everything that happened before that -- the music box killer, Caitlin, your father. That's just a lot to process, John, and I think maybe this guy could help.
John: That's funny. Some people had the opposite reaction.
Evangeline: Really? Wow, Natalie and I see eye to eye on everything. Couldn't hurt to try. And you owe it to yourself.
John: Oh, what, I'm worth it?
Natalie: So you came looking for me on New Year's Eve with a bottle of champagne just to tell me that you're ready to sign the divorce papers?
Cristian: Well, you want to divorce me.
Natalie: And you don't. Maybe this isn't the right time.
Cristian: Let's just -- just let me say my piece.
Natalie: Ok. Go ahead.
Cristian: You know, I thought when I got out, when you knew it was me that we'd be able to pick up where we left off.
Natalie: Cris --
Cristian: Just let me finish. You know, in prison, time stopped for me, Natalie. I figured it stopped for you, too. I know it was wrong, but I never figured on you being with anyone else. No, I'm sorry, that's wrong. I never let myself think of you and anyone else. And even if I had, finding out it was Mc Bain you were with, that -- that was too much. It hit too close to home.
Natalie: I thought you were dead.
Cristian: I know. I know, and you had every right to be with him.
Natalie: So where are you going with all this?
Cristian: Well, I'm glad you're not with Mc Bain anymore. You know, Natalie, the only thing that kept me alive while I was in prison was the hope that I'd be with you again.
Natalie: I'm sorry.
Cristian: Don't be. I haven't lost hope. I actually found it. That's -- that's what I wanted to tell you. That's why I'm giving you the divorce.
Natalie: So what made you change your mind?
Cristian: Well, what we had is over. We're both very different people than we were when we got married. I'll sign those papers. Just not now.
Cristian: Just give me a little more time. I mean, I know you. You're impulsive. You know, sometimes you make decisions without thinking them through.
Natalie: No, not -- not on something like this. Cris, I've had two years to get over you. Ok? I know my own mind. Why can't you just accept this?
Cristian: It's just a technicality, a piece of paper.
Natalie: Are you kidding me? Our marriage was a hell of a lot more than a technicality to me. I mean, and ending it -- do you think this is something that's easy for me? I mean, are you telling me that you're not taking this seriously? Because I don't believe you.
Cristian: No, I take it very seriously. That's why those papers don't mean a thing to me. Look, I'm going to do everything in my power to win you back, whether we're married or not.
Natalie: I don't want that.
Cristian: Listen -- listen, I'm not talking about picking up where we left off. I'm talking about starting over. I love you, Natalie. I'm a different man, and I still love you. And you're going to realize you feel the same way.
Natalie: Is that what you mean by hope?
Cristian: That's what I mean.
John: Almost midnight.
Evangeline: Yeah. I guess I should be going home.
John: Don't you want to wait till the New Year?
Evangeline: I am not spending New Year's Eve in a police station. On principle. And to be completely honest, I'd rather skip the wondering what to do with you, my ex, when midnight strikes.
John: I understand.
Evangeline: Happy New Year, John. I do hope that we can be friends again someday.
John: I think we are friends. Come on, I'll walk you home.
Evangeline: Not necessary.
John: Yeah, I know. I know I don't have to, but I'm going to do it anyway. If it gets too close to midnight, well, then just -- you're on your own.
Evangeline: I already am.
John: Makes two of us.
Evangeline: What do you say we resume that topic someday in the future, when it's safe, ok?
John: I'm going to take you up on that. Let's go.
Blair: Well, Jack is great. Starr is going to take driver's ed this semester. She says she wants her license on her birthday and not a day later.
Todd: Yes, that's probably so she can stop taking cabs when she sneaks out.
Blair: Thank you. Thank you very much. That is a great comfort, Todd.
Todd: I don't know how you pulled this off, but I'm glad you're here.
Blair: Do you get any rest while you're in here?
Todd: No, not really. Bad dreams. But really, all I have to do is figure out how to pass the time, and I think you're the one that's doing most of the work.
Blair: Your kids have been great.
Todd: I'm not talking about the kids. I'm talking about you. I know everybody thinks I'm guilty, and they probably say you're a fool for sticking by me.
Blair: I know you, Todd. And I know the truth. And when have we ever given a damn what other people think about us, huh? Oh, it's almost midnight.
Todd: Well, let's hope this year's a hell of a lot better than the last one.
Clint: Would all of you give me a moment so I can talk to Viki?
Dorian: Watch me make a tasteful exit.
David: Watch me follow you.
Renee: Clint, I'm terribly sorry to leave you in the lurch, but I have to get up to the lodge. I haven't been able to reach Asa on the phone, and I'm really quite worried about him.
Clint: Yeah, you keep me posted on that.
Clint: And thank you for calling me about this.
Renee: Good luck.
Clint: Thanks. Now, we -- oh, no. No, no, no, no, no.
Clint: We shouldn't be drinking.
Niki: "We"? You know what? You ain't my husband, and you ain't even Viki's husband anymore. Why don't you just butt out. Let me live my own damn life.
Clint: Niki, it is time to go home.
Niki: Oh -- with you? Fat chance, sweetheart. When midnight rolls around, I want a kiss, and you ain't going to be on the other end of it.
David: So are you and flint connected at the elbow these days, huh?
Dorian: Hmm. And what are you doing here with Viki on New Year's Eve?
David: Nothing. I was having a drink by myself. She sidled up next to me. I have animal magnetism, you know. So she's a little lonely. She had a couple of drinks.
Dorian: Which is not a good thing for a woman who's had a heart transplant to do.
David: Now, I'm no doctor, but spending New Year's Eve with nothing to keep you company but your dead husband's heart -- that's a little grim. So she had a few. She got out of herself for a while.
Dorian: I'll say.
David: You missed the best part, though. You want to see some of Viki's new moves? Watch this.
Dorian: Stop it.
Dorian: Well, that isn't Viki.
David: What are you talking about? Oh. Oh. Oh.
Spencer: You remember her? Do you, Asa? Did you ever stop to think about what her life must have been like after you destroyed it? I hope to God that when you wake up and you see this photograph, you will look at her face, you will feel 1/10 of the pain that I feel every time I look at this picture. And may it eat you up from the inside out, you soulless bastard. Have a nice trip, Asa. Not that you'll remember any of it consciously. But somewhere in that blackened little heart of yours, you will be terrified. I'm in your head now, Asa. And you'll never know a moment's peace for the rest of your life.
Duke: This helping at all?
Kelly: Well, maybe we should turn on the heat for a little bit.
Duke: Well, I think we should save it until we're really desperate. Oh, I'm sorry about this, Kelly.
Kelly: Oh, you didn't cause the blizzard. Or the accident on the main road.
Duke: Yeah. Well, maybe we should have toughed it out. We would be stuck in traffic, but we wouldn't be stuck out here all alone.
Kelly: Well, we're not alone. We have each other. Maybe we should try and sleep or something.
Duke: No, no, bad idea, not when we're this cold.
Kelly: You think we're going to freeze to death out here?
Duke: We're a long way off from that, Kelly. Don't worry. I'll take care of you, I promise.
[Door opens and closes]
Renee: Asa? Oh, my God. What happened?
Asa: Renee --
Renee: What did you do?
Asa: Hey, I -- I don't know what happened.
Renee: You are going to have one hell of a hangover tomorrow. I'll go and get you some coffee. What is going on with you?
Asa: Where the hell did I get this from?
Tess: Ah. Oh.
Nash: Oh --
Nash: You're all I've ever wanted.
Tess: You, too. I never thought I could have this.
Singer: Something in your eyes makes me want to lose myself makes me want to lose myself in your arms there's something in your voice that makes my heart beat fast hope this feeling lasts the rest of my life if you knew how lonely my life has been and how long I've been so alone if you knew how I wanted someone to come along and change my life the way you've done it feels like home to me it feels like home to me it feels like I'm all the way back to where I belong it feels like I'm all the way back
Natalie: I should be getting home.
Blair: It's New Year's.
Todd: And I love you.
Blair: And I love you, Todd. Happy New Year.
Todd: Happy New Year.
All: One -- Happy New Year!
["Auld Lang Syne" plays]
Niki: That's just great! You ruined it. Are you happy?
Viki: Clint. Oh.
Clint: It's ok. Don't say anything. I'm taking you home.
Dorian: Happy New Year.
David: We could have been great.
Kelly: Did you hear that?
Duke: It sounded like dad.
Kevin: Is that you?
Kelly: Oh, my God!
Kelly: Kevin! Kevin!
Kevin: What the hell are you -- what --
Duke: Dad -- hey, hey.
Man: Is he ok?
Duke: No. We got to get him to a hospital. Help me get him up.
Kelly: Oh, my God.
Duke: Come on.
Kelly: Oh. Easy.
Nash: Happy New Year.
Tess: Happy New Year.
Evangeline: Happy New Year.
Evangeline: Happy New Year.
John: Happy New Year.
Natalie: Happy New Year.
On the next "One Life to Live" --
Tess: This person that did this to you -- are they going to try to do it again?
Kevin: I didn't just pass out. Someone did this to me. Am I right?
Dr. Crosby: Natalie Vega -- talk to me.
Cristian: I still think we belong together, and today I'm going to prove it to you.
