Natalie: Before, when you called Cristian my husband -- he's not anymore.

John: Yeah, I heard.

Natalie: Cristian told you?

John: He mentioned something about it while we were sparring.  He thinks you went through with it so you and I could get together.  Did you?

Natalie: You know the answer to that.

John: No, I don't, and I want to hear it from you, anyway.

Natalie: My divorce had nothing to do with you.  Everything we had was based on a lie. It's over.  Any more questions?

John: Yeah. You know, you once told me that you wanted to be with me even if Cris was around.  Was that a lie?

Todd: What the hell is Spencer doing here?  Why is he testifying?  What does he have to do with this?

Evangeline: Calm down, Todd.  We don't want the jury to see you agitated.

Bailiff: Raise your right hand.  Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?

Spencer: I do.

Bo: Pa, you ok?

Clint: Hey.

Asa: Knock!  Will you come in, please?  You scared the hell out of me.

Clint: Sorry . We wake you up?

Asa: Hell, no, I was -- I was just thinking.

Bo: You look pale.

Asa: I'm fine!  Raring to go.  I've got my energy back.

Clint: Well, we're not so sure about that.  We talked to Renee, and she is worried sick about you.

Asa: Oh, Renee.  She worries about anything and everything.

Bo: We think that she has a good reason this time.

Clint: Pa, Bo and I want to know what happened to you up at the lodge on New Year's Eve.

Hugh: Dr. Truman, in your opinion, was the person who murdered Margaret Cochran a man or a woman?

Spencer: In all likelihood, she was murdered by a man.

Evangeline: Your honor, the coroner testified to the same thing.  To have Dr. Truman repeat what's already been said in this court is -- pardon the expression -- overkill.

Judge: I agree, Ms. Williamson.  Do you have any other reason for calling this witness, Mr. Hughes?

Hugh: I do, your honor.  Dr. Truman has information about the defendant that goes straight to the heart of this case.

David: Hey, I got your message.  It sounded urgent.  What's up?

Paige: Why'd you do it, David, just for fun?  Is that how you get your kicks?

David: What are you talking about?

Paige: I told you something in confidence.

David: What confidence?  Oh, that you had a son and you gave him up for adoption?

Paige: A little louder, please?  I don't think everyone in the restaurant heard you.

David: I didn't tell anyone anything about that.

Paige: No?  Then why did Spencer show up at Bo's the other night claiming that you knew some big, dark secret about him?

David: I never said that.  You're the one who said that you had something on him. When he pressed me on it, I played dumb.

Paige: Unfortunately, he can see right through you.

David: Paige, I promise, I did not say anything to Spencer or anyone else about your secret.  I would never do that.

Paige: I hope not.  Because now, more than ever, it's important for him to never find out about this.

David: Why is that?

Paige: I've told Bo everything.  He's agreed to help me find my son.

Bo: So what happened, pa?  Why did you drink a whole bottle of bourbon?

Asa: Well, I'll tell you what happened, Bo. My whole family stood me up.  So I had a couple of drinks all by my lonesome.

Bo: Nobody stood you up.  There was a snowstorm.  Do you remember?

Clint: And a fifth of bourbon is a bit more than a couple of drinks.

Bo: And Renee said that you were acting confused and disoriented when she showed up.  She said you've been acting strange ever since.

Asa: Oh, Renee. I'm fine.  I told you that. I'm as sharp as a tack.  But maybe it was old Renee knocking a few back, huh? Whoa-ho.

Bo: You know Renee doesn't drink and you know that she's telling the truth.

Clint: You're hiding something, pa, and we want to know what it is.

Hugh: Dr. Truman, did you once treat the defendant for a stab wound?

Spencer: Yes, I did.

Hugh: And would you describe to the court how that came about?

Spencer: Well, it was by accident, really.  I virtually stumbled upon Mr. Manning outside the hospital.  He had been stabbed, he was severely wounded, and he was delirious.

Hugh: He was delirious?

Spencer: Fading in and out of consciousness.

Hugh: And did the defendant say anything?

Spencer: He said that Margaret Cochran had stabbed him.

Hugh: And you kept this very important piece of information to yourself?

Spencer: Well, yes, I did.  Todd asked me to keep quiet about it, and doctor-patient confidentiality required that I do so.

Hugh: While the defendant was fading in and out, did he say anything else that you recall?

Spencer: Yes, he did.

Todd: What's he talking about?

Hugh: And what did he say, doctor?

Spencer: He mumbled something about Margaret Cochran being pregnant with his child.

Todd: I didn't say that.

Evangeline: Are you sure?

Blair: How could Spencer have known that Margaret was pregnant all this time and not have told me?

Hugh: Did the defendant say anything else, doctor?

Spencer: Yes, he did.

Hugh: And what was that?  It's ok, doctor.  You are under oath.

Spencer: He said that the reason Margaret stabbed him was because he had tried to kill her.

Natalie: I never lied to you about that.  I loved you.  I wanted you more than any man in the world, and the thought of Cristian coming back from the dead -- that wouldn't even change it.

John: Then what did?

Natalie: What if I had known about Caitlin?  What if I had known that she was alive all this time and didn't tell you?  Would you be able to go on loving me?  I'm so glad we ordered.

Judge: Order!

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Mr. Hughes?

Hugh: Thank you. Dr. Truman, is there a reason why you didn't come forward with this information sooner?

Spencer: Well, as I said, doctor-patient confidentiality, but also because there's someone very close to this case, a good friend of mine, who happens to think that Mr. Manning is innocent.  And I trust this person.  Therefore, I also believe that Mr. Manning is innocent.

Hugh: Thank you.  No further questions.

Judge: Ms. Williamson, do you wish to cross-examine?

Evangeline: I do, your honor.

Todd: Bury this bastard.

Evangeline: Good afternoon, Dr. Truman.

Spencer: Good afternoon.

Evangeline: I agree with district attorney Hughes that your credentials as a physician are impeccable, and I would also like to use your expertise to clarify a few points for all of us.  You read the autopsy report carefully, did you not?

Spencer: Yes, I did.  It was pretty straightforward.  I would be very surprised if something had escaped me.

Evangeline: The strong probability that Margaret was strangled by a man -- that didn't escape you?

Spencer: No, I agree with the coroner.  I believe that Margaret was almost undoubtedly strangled by a man.

Evangeline: Did it escape you that this man was not identified?

Spencer: No.

Evangeline: Nowhere on the report does the name "Todd Manning" appear.

Spencer: That's right.

Evangeline: So as far as you and the coroner know, based upon all the evidence in the autopsy report, it could've been any man in the entire world?

Spencer: Yes.

Evangeline: Now I'd like to turn to what you heard or what you believe was said when you were treating Mr. Manning's stab wound.  You testified that my client was delirious. Is that correct?

Spencer: That's right.

Evangeline: Fading in and out, you said?

Spencer: Yes.

Evangeline: And yet you believed what he said to be true, the words of a delirious man?

Spencer: Well, frankly, I didn't give it that much thought.

Evangeline: Oh.  Because you were busy attending to what must have been a very serious wound if you, such an important physician, were treating him.  Is it true that your concern was the wound?

Spencer: Yes.

Evangeline: So it's not like you were taking notes.  You didn't write down the babblings of a delirious man?

Spencer: No.

Evangeline: No.

Spencer: No.

Evangeline: No. So since you were so involved in treating this severe injury, is it safe to say that you could've missed some of what was said or misconstrued the meaning?

Hugh: Dr. Truman has already testified as to what the defendant said.

Judge: Is that an objection, Mr. Hughes?

Evangeline: Your honor, I am simply trying to refresh Dr. Truman's memory, giving him an opportunity to clarify his previous testimony.

Judge: Move on, Ms. Williamson.

Evangeline: Seeing as how district attorney Hughes is so convinced that your previous testimony is the unshakable truth, I have one final question.  Is it not true that you testified, sitting on this stand under oath, that you believe Todd Manning is innocent?

Spencer: Yes.

Evangeline: Thank you.  No further questions.

Judge: Mr. Hughes, redirect?

Hugh: No, your honor.

Judge: You may step down, doctor.

Spencer: Thank you.

Judge: This court is now in recess.

Bailiff: All rise.

Blair: I'll be right back.

Dorian: Well, I would give that round to the defense.

Viki: Oh, come on, Dorian, it's not a boxing match.

Dorian: I find Evangeline to be very impressive, though.  Goodness knows she did do a number on you.

Viki: She was doing her job.

Dorian: I know, but to, you know, bring out in court your long history of mental illness, to inform the entire courtroom that your promiscuous alter ego Niki is once again out on the loose -- well, for a moment there, I just thanked my lucky stars I wasn't in your shoes.

Viki: Oh. Well, the feeling is entirely mutual, I can assure you.

Dorian: I think that was out of line. I'm trying to be supportive here.

Viki: Oh, Dorian, come on, you're getting your digs in.  I mean, friendship is all very well when it suits you, but you never miss an opportunity to kick me when I'm down.

Dorian: That's a terrible thing to say.

Viki: You tell me something -- why did you feel it was necessary to inform me that you want to date Clint?

Dorian: Maybe because I have a genuine interest in the man.

Viki: Oh, really?  Has it ever occurred to you he may not have a genuine interest in you? He may not have any interest in you, for that matter.

Dorian: We'll just see about that.

Blair: Spencer, wait, please.

Spencer: I don't have time, Blair.

Blair: I want to talk to you a minute.  I just want to talk to you about what happened up on the stand, please?

Spencer: I'm sorry.

Blair: Spencer --

Dorian: Blair, honey.

Blair: What?

Dorian: That is so rude.  Stop taking pictures!  Honey, are you all right?

Blair: How can you even ask that?

Dorian: Because something has come up and I might have to leave, but if you need me, I won't.

Blair: Go.  You know, go.

Dorian: Are you sure?

Blair: I'll be fine. Just go.

Dorian: All right, I love you, I love you.

Todd: You could practically see the sincerity dripping from this guy's mouth. And he never lets you forget he's a doctor.  This whole "I'm so humble," and all the while, he's throwing out his credentials like he's the surgeon general or something.

Evangeline: Listen, the bottom line is he didn't hurt our case.  In fact, I think I managed to twist his testimony so that it favored us.

Blair: Evangeline, may I have a word with Todd, please?

Evangeline: Of course.

Blair: Thank you.

Evangeline: Hey, Viki.  I was wondering if I could just have a word with you.

Viki: You know, Evangeline, I don't think so.  Not just now, ok?

Todd: So what'd your good friend Dr. Truman have to say?

Viki: Come on, Todd, he was trying to help you.  Can't you see that?

Todd: No.

Blair: You really don't remember ever telling him that Margaret was pregnant or that you tried to kill her?

Todd: No, I was out of it.  You heard him.  I barely remember seeing him at the hospital.

Blair: So he was telling the truth?

Todd: Let me tell you something -- if you continue to defend him -- just forget it. The son of a bitch tried to bury me.

David: So you and Bo are going to go out and look for your kid?

Paige: That's the plan.

David: He's probably a grown man by now.

Paige: Yeah.

David: Paige, what are you going to do if you find him?

Paige: Nothing. I just want to know whether or not he's ok.  And I do wish that I could explain it to him, why I had to give him up, you know, help him understand, but --

David: Yeah, well, what if he doesn't understand?  What if he's angry or resentful?

Paige: Well, David, I know this isn't going to be easy.  I know that no matter how much I've hoped and prayed that he's all right that he just might be having a rough life.  Or that he's like his father.

David: Are you sure you're going to be able to deal with that?

Paige: I don't know if I can deal with anything.  But the truth has to be better than not knowing.

David: Well, I hope you find what you're looking for.  I certainly hope Spencer doesn't find out that you kept his son from him.

Paige: He can't find out, David.  Oh, God only knows what he would do if he did.

Bo: We're not leaving until we know the truth, pa.  Now, you're not yourself.  Now, whatever it is that happened to you, it wasn't a bender.

Asa: All right.  All right.  I think that somebody must have gotten in here.

Bo: Was anything taken?

Asa: Not -- not actually.

Clint: What does that mean?  I mean, why do you think there was a break-in?  Did you see somebody?

Asa: No, no, it's -- I just had a feeling.

Clint: What kind of feeling?

Asa: What are you, a shrink?

Bo: Oh, pa.

Asa: And you with your interrogation.  I answer your questions, you don't like them, that's your problem.  I have my own worries, about you, both of you.

Clint: What?

Asa: You got to be careful.  God -- god only knows why.

Clint: Would you mind telling us what the hell you're talking about?

Asa: Uh, yeah, as I said, I just have this -- this feeling.

Clint: Another feeling?  What are you now, a psychic?

Bo: What's going on, pa?

Asa: I'm just asking my sons to be careful.  Now, is that too much of a father to ask of his sons?

Bo: I got to get back to the department.

Asa: You're going to watch your back, right, son?

Bo: Comes with the territory.

Clint: I'll walk you out, Bo.

Bo: Ok.

Bo: I'll see you later.

Clint: All right.

Dorian: Hello, Bo.

Bo: Hello, Dorian.  Now, what brings you here?

Dorian: Personal business -- with Clint.

Bo: Ok, then.

Clint: Dorian, what are you doing here?

Dorian: Nigel let me in.  I hope it's all right.

Clint: It's not Niki again, is it?

Dorian: No, it's not Niki.  Well, actually, it does have to do with Niki.  I'm going to take her advice.  I'm asking you out on a date.

Evangeline: Please, Viki, please just hear me out.  I want to apologize for what I had to do to you on that stand.  It killed me to have to use your D.I.D. to discredit you.  It -- it killed me to have to do that.

Viki: I -- why didn't you warn me, you know?  I mean, I know you did it to help Todd, and certainly I want to see him go free as much as you do, but you could've warned me.

Evangeline: Well, I guess I shouldn't expect you to forgive me.  But I do hope that you can understand.

Viki: I think that Todd is very lucky to have you for his lawyer.  And if your tactics helped my brother, well, then -- then it was worth it.

Evangeline: Thank you.

Viki: Mm-hmm.

Blair: Bury you?  Were you even listening?  He was trying to help you, Todd.

Todd: By telling the jury that I killed Margaret?  How does that help me?

Blair: He also said he thought you were innocent.

Todd: You got to be kidding me.  He would like nothing more than to be front and center at my execution.

Blair: Oh, well, excuse me. It's not his fault that you said all those things to him. He was telling the truth.

Todd: Oh, right, there's no possible way that the good Dr. Spencer Truman could ever tell a lie, is that right?

Evangeline: Please, can you both of you just lower your voices?

Viki: We can hear you all the way across the room, you know.

Officer: Time to get you back to your cell, Manning.

Viki: Todd, I'm so sorry I couldn't help you any more.

Todd: No, don't you worry about it.  At least you're on my side.

John: Caitlin has nothing to do with our situation.

Natalie: That's what I thought.  If the tables were turned, you would not be able to forgive me.

John: I know why you're angry.

Natalie: Angry?  John, I hate you.

John: Fair enough.  But this situation, any way it went, it was going to go wrong.  I wish there was a way I could make up for what I did, but --

Natalie: So do I.  But there isn't.

Clint: What?  You're asking me out on a date, Dorian?

Dorian: Yeah.

Clint: What's the catch?

Dorian: There is no catch.  We're both single now, we're both very attractive, and we've been there, we've done that. And I thought maybe --

Clint: You thought maybe that you'd just stick it to Viki by taking out her ex-husband.

Dorian: This has nothing to do with Viki.

Clint: Oh.

Dorian: No, this is a sincere invitation on my part.  What do you say?

Asa: Dorian!

Dorian: Asa!

Asa: Always a pleasure to see you.

Dorian: Back at you.

Asa: Clint, I'd like a word with you.

Clint: All right.

Asa: Don't you go away.

Dorian: I won't.

Clint: What now?

Asa: Do it, Clint.  Take her out.

Clint: You want me to go out with Dorian?

Asa: Don't you feel kind of bad for her, the way she was left at the altar, the poor thing?

Clint: Pa, why in god's name do you want me to go out with Dorian Lord?

Asa: To be honest, I want to find out if I can trust her.

Clint: Well, you don't have to waste money taking her out to lunch.  I can give you the answer -- no, you can't.

Asa: No, no, it's this Spencer Truman thing.  See, we're supposed to be allies and, see, I'm not sure.  And I want you to kind of feel her out to see if she's hiding anything.

Clint: Does this got anything to do with what happened to you up at the lodge?

Asa: Will you just do it and forget the damn lodge?

Clint: All right, all right. I'll do it because I'm worried about you.

Asa: Don't worry about me.  Go tell Dorian you're going to take her out on the town and show her the time of her life.

Clint: All right, all right.  I may phrase it a little differently, but I'll do that.  Ahem.

Clint: I'm sorry for the interruption.

Dorian: Oh.

Clint: Now, if your offer is still on the table, I'd like to accept it.

Dorian: Clint, you make it sound like you're consummating a business deal instead of something else.  A yes is a yes.  I'll take it.  Come on, cowboy.

Bo: Hey, Matthew.

Matthew: Hi. Hey, dad.  I know you're working.  I should've called first.

Bo: No, what, are you kidding me?  I love it when I see you.  You know, I just ran into Marianne out there and she told me that you asked her to bring you down here to see me, so what's on your mind?

Matthew: She didn't tell you?

Bo: No, no, she actually said that she thought it was a good idea if I heard this from you.

Matthew: All right. You're not going to believe this.

Bo: Ok.

Matthew: I think mom's going to wake up, like, definitely.

Bo: Really?  Uh, what makes you think that?

Matthew: Well, I was in the middle of telling her how we did that science project that you helped me with -- you know, the one on the map of Pennsylvania?  Remember?

Bo: Yeah, yeah, of course I remember that.

Matthew: Well, I was in the middle of explaining how we did the mountains, and all of a sudden her hand just moved -- like this.

Bo: Uh-huh.  Uh, did you tell a nurse or a doctor about it?

Matthew: Yeah, I told a nurse.  You know, Shirley, the one who's always there?

Bo: Mm-hmm?

Matthew: She told Dr. Mike.

Bo: Ok, and what did he say?

Matthew: He says another involuntary response.  But I think this is different than the other ones.  I really think she's trying to tell me that she's going to wake up.

Bo: Just because Dr. Mc Bain says don't put that much into it, that doesn't mean that your mom's not going to wake up, ok, because she is going to wake up when she's ready.

Matthew: But when is she going to be ready?  I mean, it's already been a really long time.

Bo: I know, son.  And I know this has been really tough for you, ok, but I'm going to be there for you night and day.  I'm not going anywhere, I promise.

Matthew: But you can't promise that.  You've got a really dangerous job.  You almost died in that prison riot.  What if next time you don't make it?

Bo: Hey.  Come on.  Look, I know it's -- it's risky, but that's why I'm especially careful now.  It's because I know that you need me, and I know that I need you.

Viki: Hey, darling.

Natalie: Hey, mom.

Viki: You look like you have the weight of the world on you.

Natalie: No more than the rest of the family.  Glad you could have lunch.

Viki: I'm glad you asked.  We haven't had any time together, you and I.

Natalie: I know.  How's Jess?

Viki: I don't know.  She's Tess right now.

Natalie: Still?

Viki: Yes, but at least she is home now.  We have a guard to look after her, but she doesn't seem to want to leave, not at the moment.

Natalie: So, I guess tonight I finally get to meet Tess.

Viki: Just remember that she's your sister.  I keep hoping that we're getting closer to finding out why Tess exists.

Natalie: I wish I could help.

Viki: Yeah. Just love her.  You know, darling, when I was dealing with my alters, there were times when things were so dark, everything felt so hopeless, I really just wanted to give up.  I wanted to let whoever was strongest take over and live my life.  But the love of my family gave me the strength to pull through it, and that's what we have to do now for Jessie.

Natalie: So tell me, what about Niki Smith?

Viki: Ah. Well, no sign of her since New Year's Eve, although I was afraid she might have shown up today in court when her name came up.

Natalie: Niki Smith's name came up in court today?  Why?

Viki: It's not important.

Natalie: Mom?

Viki: I was subpoenaed to testify for the prosecution.

Natalie: And they asked you about Niki Smith?

Viki: No. No, they didn't.  Evangeline did.  She had to do it in order to undermine my credibility.

Paige: Bo has some reservations about not telling Spencer that he has a son because of his experience with Matthew, but he would never betray my confidence.  I hope I can count on you to do the same.

David: Your secret is safe with me.

Spencer: I see you two have been putting your heads together again.  Should I be concerned?

David: Oh.  Spoken like a man with a guilty conscience.

Guard: Visitor, Manning.

Denton: Here you go, boss.

Todd: What's going on, Denton?

Denton: You look nice and cozy-comfy in your little jail cell here.

Todd: What is this?  What do you want?

Denton: Uh -- $100,000.

Todd: Why would I give you $100,000?

Denton: Because if you don't, I'm going to go to the D.A. and tell him that you confessed to me you murdered Margaret Cochran.

John: Hey, I'm sorry to interrupt.  Hey, Matthew.

Matthew: Hey, John.

John: Uh, you got a minute I could talk to you?

Bo: Yeah, sure, come on in.

John: Ok.

[Phone rings]

Bo: Excuse me.  Buchanan.  All right.  Yeah, I'll be right up.  Excuse me for a minute.  I got to run upstairs, ok?  I'll be right back.

John: May I?

Bo: Yeah, please.

John: Ok. You know, your dad, he's a good man.

Matthew: Yeah. He's the best dad in the world.

John: You know, you and I actually have something in common.  My old man was a cop, too.

Matthew: Cool.  Is he still alive?

John: He died a long time ago.

Matthew: I'm really sorry.  Do you miss him?

John: Yeah.  Matter of fact, I've been thinking a lot about him lately.

Matthew: Why is that?

John: I'm not sure why, Matthew.

Matthew: Well, maybe it's because -- because you need closure.

Natalie: How dare Evangeline bring up your D.I.D. in court.

Viki: Shh.

Natalie: That bitch!

Viki: Natalie.  Honey, she was doing what she had to do to defend Todd.

Natalie: I don't care, that's no excuse.  No, she's gone way too far this time.

Spencer: Mind if I join you?

David: Yes, we do mind.

[Pager beeps]

Paige: Oh.  That's the hospital.  I got to go.  Oh, shoot.

David: Well?

Spencer: "Well" what?

David: Aren't you going to give me the third degree about what Paige and I were chatting about?

Spencer: No, I trust you.

David: Uh-huh, since when?

Spencer: Seriously, Davey, I still have my hopes up that you and I will be able to be a team again someday just like we used to be.

David: Oh, yeah, the good old days, when we bilked people out of their money, among other things.

Spencer: You have to admit we were pretty good at it. Also, I need your help on something right now.

David: Oh, right, I know -- your big vendetta on bringing down the Buchananís.  You know what, you can save the explanation because I don't care.  I'm not interested.

Spencer: You don't want to know what it is that I have against them?

David: No, I don't.

Spencer: Ok, fine.

David: I said I don't.

Spencer: Look, just go to the mansion, all right, and find the photograph that I presented to Asa on New Year's Eve.

David: Spencer, why can't you just tell me what it is?

Spencer: Well, what would be the fun in that?  Besides, I need to know if you still have the touch.

David: You're either born with it or you're not.  You don't lose the touch.

Spencer: We'll see about that, little brother.  Prove it to me.  Break into the mansion without Asa seeing you.  And if he does see you, don't mention anything to him about the photograph because he really has no idea how it got there.

David: Wait a second, you just said that you gave it to him.

Spencer: I did.  He was just slightly incapacitated at the time.

David: "Incapacitated?"  Why would he lose his head over a photograph?  Besides, he must have hundreds of photographs lying around that old mansion.  How am I going to know which one's yours?

Spencer: You'll know. I have no doubt about that.

Viki: Evangeline is Todd's lawyer.  She has to defend him to the very best of her ability.

Natalie: That doesn't give her the right to humiliate you on the stand.  No. Mom, are you listening to me?

Blair: Look, I know that Todd is scared, but lashing out at the people who want to help him?  There's no way he's going to win that case.

Evangeline: Go to him, Blair, please, talk to him, try to patch things up?  Look, the last thing the jury needs to see or even sense is that you and Todd are at odds.  If they think you don't believe in him, they're not going to believe in him, either.

Blair: I believe in him.  He's just making it hard.

Evangeline: Go to him, please?  Talk to him, let him know that you're in his corner.

Blair: He knows that.  But they're not going to let me down there now anyway.

Evangeline: I'll make sure that they do.  Come on, I'll take you myself.  He's not going to make it through this without you.

Todd: I'm in here fighting for my life and you're here to extort money?

Denton: Whoa, whoa, whoa with the attitude!  There's nothing extortionary here.  I just simply want payment for services rendered.

Todd: What services?

Denton: Keeping my mouth shut.  You told me you offed that loopy broad.  You asked me to keep it under my hat, so I did.

Todd: I think you're the loopy broad.  I never told you I killed Margaret.

Denton: That's not how I remember it.  You told me you killed her, you asked me to keep it under wraps, and, like the good soldier that I am, I did, until my conscience started to bother me -- at least that's what I'm going to tell the D.A. and he's going to put me back on the stand and I'm going to tell it all to the jury.  They're just looking for a reason to ice you, pal, and I'm going to give them one.  So what's it going to be, boss, 100 grand or do I sing like a parakeet to Mr. District Attorney?

John: Where the hell did you learn a word like "closure?"

Matthew: I mean, I'm around all the time.  I hear everything.

John: Hey, you didn't hear it from me.  Probably didn't hear it from Asa. "Closure's" one of those funny words . I'm very uncomfortable with it -- although I probably do need it when I think about it.  Maybe you're right, Matthew.

Bo: Hey, I'm back.

John: Hey.

Bo: Matthew, could you do me a favor?  Could you just go out there with Marianne, just for a little while, because John and I, we've got some work to do.  But don't go anywhere because I want to continue our conversation.

Matthew: Sure, dad.

Bo: All right.

Matthew: See you, john.

John: Thanks for the talk, buddy.

Matthew: No problem.

John: Bright kid.  Hey, look, I -- I wanted to apologize for the way I've been acting lately.

Bo: No, don't apologize. J ust follow orders and get some therapy, ok?

John: I'll try.

Bo: No, don't try.  Do it.  I've got enough to worry about right now without having to worry about you, too -- I mean, Nora, little Matthew, my father.

John: Asa's sick?

Bo: No, no, he's not sick.  He's -- actually, I don't know what's wrong with him.  But he's got something on his mind.

David: My God.

Paige: Ok, what happened to David?

Spencer: Oh, you know Davey.  He's always on the move.

Paige: What are you up to now?

Spencer: What?  "Up to?"  What, what makes you think I'm up to something?

Paige: That look.  I know that look.

Hugh: Tell me about Todd and Blair.  Trouble in paradise?

Evangeline: Well, that depends on whether or not you consider being tried for capital murder trouble.

Hugh: From what I saw, it looks like she's losing faith in him.

Evangeline: Couldn't be further from the truth.  See, Todd is innocent and Blair knows it.

Hugh: Well, she's going to have to face a very cold and very hard fact, and so are you, Evangeline -- counselor.  Todd Manning is guilty as sin.

Todd: Why you doing this to me?

Denton: Why am I doing this?   Because I love you, I dote on you.  Do I get the cashola or do I go to the D.A.?

Todd: I'm just going to tell him what you're up to.

Denton: Ha, you think Hughes will believe you over me?  The whole jury will believe me, too.

Todd: Yeah, with your record, huh?

Denton: You willing to bet on it, pally?  You willing to bet your freedom on it, your life?  What's it going to be, big guy?

Todd: All right.  I'll give you what you want.  Don't you even think about telling anybody that I killed Margaret.

On the next "One Life to Live" --

Antonio: Has Nash told you who beat him up yet?

Nash: Tess is going to find out about me, and then it will be over.

David: How couldn't I recognize the photograph?  What does she have to do with why you're here in Llanview?

Blair: Why did you just tell Denton that you murdered Margaret Cochran?
