One Life to Live Transcript Friday 3/24/06
Proofread by Brandi
Billy: Missed him. Hmm. Good looking jab, though.
Cristian: Yeah, too slow. You know, when Joe Louis was in training, he could snatch flies out of the air, two or three at a time.
Billy: Hmm. Did Louis drink that goop, too?
Cristian: Protein shake. Got a big fight tomorrow.
Billy: Yeah, I got a c note on you.
Cristian: Really? Well, hey, in that case, I'd better hit the sack.
Cristian: See you, man.
Hugh: Hey, you're not going anywhere. Not until you tell me where I can find Evangeline Williamson.
Evangeline: I'm so sorry, Todd. I know what it feels like to --
Todd: Oh, you know what it feels like?
Todd: Do you know what it feels like to be on the run for your life and see the woman you love having sex with the man who set you up to die? Do you know what that feels like? I don't think so.
Spencer: Poor guy. He saw me and Blair making love.
Blair: Spencer, it's freezing out here. What are you doing?
Nash: Well, that's the way it goes. Thank you very much. Congratulations. You successfully killed the sale of the vineyard. Buyers found something else.
Tess: Too bad.
Nash: Hmm, you seem all broke up about it.
Tess: Well, why should I be? The only reason you were going to sell this place was to protect me from Claudia's father.
Nash: And that's a bad thing?
Tess: I'm not going to let you give up on your dream, Nash. And besides, if George Reston is going to come looking for us, he's going to find us no matter where we go.
Nash: Not in Llanview. We'll be safe there.
Tess: Yeah, maybe from Reston, but what about Viki and Clint? They're not going to stop till they find out my secret. And once they do, it's game over.
Tess: No more Tess.
Nash: No. No matter what happens, no matter what, I will not let there be an end to Tess.
Clint: Bo should be here by now.
Viki: Well, why do we have to wait for him?
Clint: Viki, we don't have a choice. Whatever's on this tape could be evidence of a crime.
Viki: Please don't keep saying that!
Clint: And we don't want to jeopardize any kind of investigation.
Viki: God, it's a crime.
Clint: Viki, we don't know.
Clint: But if the owner of this Box did something to Jessie -- if he hurt Jessie, it's a crime.
Viki: You know what? All I care about is helping Jessie right now. You know, whatever happened in the past --
Clint: Yeah. Well, we'll deal with it, the three of us.
Bo: I'm sorry I'm late. Is that it?
Viki: Yes. Clint found the Box. It was hidden under some floorboards in an old abandoned house.
Clint: Yeah, and the place wasn’t far from the bar where niki took Jessica when Jessie was a little girl.
Bo: Yeah. The tape?
Viki: It's right here.
Viki: What? Oh.
Bo: Have you watched this?
Clint: No, we haven't. We thought that you should check it out first, along with the others.
Bo: The others?
Bo: How many are there?
Clint: A lot.
Viki: Too many. Too many.
Bo: Are these all of Jess?
Clint: No, there are other girls. Names are on the tapes.
Viki: Including the name of the young woman who actually took us to the abandoned house.
Clint: Her name is rose.
Viki: Bo, there's something unspeakably awful on these tapes, I just know it.
Bo: All right, look, if there is, we're going to get the guy responsible, I promise you that.
Clint: Thank you.
Bo: You know, guys who commit crimes like this -- they don't have a real long shelf life in prison, because a lot of those hardcore criminals that are in there doing hard time -- a lot of them have daughters of their own. I'm going to get this to forensics.
Viki: No, no, no. Before you take that away, we need to watch that.
Cristian: What makes you think I know where Evangeline is?
Hugh: Come on, Vega, Vega, Vega. What was -- what was that little display this morning?
Hugh: Yeah, you know, that display with -- with you and John Mc Bain just mindlessly coming to Evangeline's defense?
Cristian: Evangeline saved my life. I'm in debt to her, and I always will be.
Hugh: That's touching, but just how far would you go to repay that debt?
Cristian: Conversation over.
Hugh: I mean, would you -- would you help her elude the police while she's helping Todd do the same thing? Because I can't understand how that would be a smart thing for an ex-con to do.
Natalie: An ex-con that was framed. You know, Cristian has worked very hard to put his life back together. And he wouldn't do anything to jeopardize that.
Hugh: Yeah, well, I certainly don't need your input, Natalie.
Natalie: That's not input, that's the truth. And you can ask him instead of accusing him first.
Hugh: Fine. Are you really not involved in this?
Cristian: I haven't seen or heard from Evangeline since she left the police station this morning.
Hugh: Well, I -- I seriously hope that's true.
Cristian: Well, I'd be stupid to lie to you, right?
Hugh: Yes, you would.
Cristian: There you go.
Hugh: See, I just can't get it. Maybe you can help me. I don't understand. Evangeline is a very smart woman. She's got a great career ahead of her. Why would she risk it all to save a man who killed his own baby?
Evangeline: You're right. I have no idea how you must feel. But I have tried to imagine what you're going through, and I know that I would be devastated --
Todd: You would be angrier than you've ever been in your life. Man, I'm ready to kill someone.
Evangeline: Don't say that, not even to me.
Todd: I mean, up till now, I -- I could handle anything. But for her to sleep with Spencer Truman --
Evangeline: I'm so sorry, Todd. I keep saying that, I know. I wish I could come up with something --
Todd: God, how could she?
Evangeline: To say that would help you. Spencer -- he can be charming.
Todd: Oh, that's -- but what difference does that make? She's not a child! She's a grown woman! She said she was committed to me! She was supposed to be committed to me!
Evangeline: Maybe losing you had her confused.
Todd: Yeah. And you know, this has been Spencer Truman's plan from day one.
Evangeline: What, to sleep with Blair?
Todd: Well, not from the beginning, but I'll tell you, I remember when he came to town and he laid eyes on her. And he said to himself, "I'll have one of those." And he waited and he waited till she was ripe for the picking. And he picked her. And apparently, she was happy to be picked.
Evangeline: No, Todd, Blair has been in a lot of pain.
Todd: And that -- that slick son of a bitch -- he's kissing it all better, isn't he?
Blair: Spencer, it's freezing. Why are you standing out here like this?
Spencer: Bo Buchanan stopped by a little while ago.
Blair: Bo, what did he -- they caught Todd?
Spencer: No, no, but they have reason to believe he's been in the vicinity this evening.
Blair: Well, why would they think that?
Spencer: There was a tow truck stolen down the road not too far from here and driven by a guy who matched Todd's description.
Blair: A tow -- that must be the tow truck that was going to help us last night.
Spencer: Yeah, probably.
Blair: Well, how would Todd even know that I was here? I -- well, he knows the cabin. Maybe he was planning on hiding out, you --
Spencer: Maybe so. I have no idea.
Blair: I just thank God he obviously didn't show up.
Spencer: Actually, he did. He was here.
Blair: What? You -- you saw him?
Spencer: No, but I found this.
Blair: That's Todd's wedding ring. He never took that off. He never took that off, even when we weren't together.
Spencer: I'm sorry, Blair.
Blair: Well, why would he -- I don't -- you know -- where did you say you found this?
Spencer: Right there. Right outside on the windowsill right there.
Blair: The window?
Blair: Oh, my God. He saw us. He saw us through the window. That's why -- that's why he took the ring off. He -- he wanted to let me know that he saw us.
Spencer: Possibly, yeah.
Blair: Oh, my God. We're lucky he didn't come in here and -- and try to kill us both. Oh, the kids -- taken the kids.
Blair: No, they're here. They're asleep. It's ok.
Spencer: Thank God. After all, their safety is what's most important, isn't it?
Blair: But -- but still, I --
Blair: The thought of Todd seeing us --
Spencer: Blair, you listen to me. I mean, look at me. Maybe it's for the best, right?
Blair: What, Spencer? How can -- how can you say that?
Spencer: Because maybe it'll help him accept what you've already accepted -- that you two are no longer going to be together and that you've moved on with someone else. Hey, am I wrong about that?
Viki: I need to see what's on that tape.
Bo: Viki --
Viki: You can have it back right after that, ok?
Bo: Look, this is potential evidence. I can't risk it getting contaminated.
Viki: Are you kidding? We've already touched the Box.
Clint: And the tape.
Viki: Yeah, my fingerprints and Clint's -- they're all over the place. Look, you can take the Box and the other tapes, but I really need to see that.
Bo: Ok, here's what we're talking about here. It's a chain of custody, ok? If -- if we go to trial and -- and it comes out that I've allowed evidence to be held --
Viki: Bo, listen to me. Something happened to Jessica when she was a child, something so awful that she had to create an alternate personality to deal with it. Whatever that was, it's on that tape! Come on, if it was Matthew's name, you'd have to see it, wouldn't you?
Clint: Bo --
Clint: I'll get the tape back to you as soon as we've watched it.
Bo: The Commissioner in me says I should take all of these tapes with me right now. But the father and the uncle say something completely different.
Bo: So I guess that would be two against one.
Viki: Thank you.
Clint: Bo, thank you.
Viki: Oh, there's one more thing. This is really -- it's too awful and too private for anyone to know about except us. Please?
Bo: Viki, I'm not going to say anything to anybody.
Viki: Although, I don't know how I can protect Jessica now, any more than I could back then.
Nash: Tess --
Tess: No talking.
Nash: Tess, just one thing.
Tess: Not now.
Tess: I said not now.
Nash: Clint -- one thing -- Clint and Viki -- they have your best interests in mind.
Tess: No, they have Jessica's best interests in mind, which is something totally different.
Nash: No. I will not let anything happen to you, no matter what happens. No matter how mad you sometimes make me, living without you is no longer an option.
Tess: Well, I'm pretty hooked on you, too, Brennan, no matter how mad you make me a lot of the time.
Nash: How could I possibly do that when I am such a charming --
Tess: You --
Nash: And agreeable person?
Tess: Do that when you tell me that I'm not tough enough to deal with a guy like Reston.
Nash: Reston is dangerous.
Tess: Well, I'm not the least bit afraid of him. Him or his druggie daughter. And, you know, while we're on the subject -- what is with you and high-maintenance women? First, it's Claudia, the druggie princess, then it's Tess, bad, Jess, good.
Nash: Hmm, you mean, "bad" like in a great --
Tess: No, seriously, don't try to change the subject. What is it about crazy girls that makes them so irresistible to you?
Clint: God, I really appreciate this.
Bo: No problem. There's something else, though. I don't think Viki wants to hear this, but Manning's been spotted. The police are closing in on him.
Clint: No, no. Viki can't take much more. Would you call me if you catch Todd, or --
Bo: No, hey, I'm going to keep you posted. How about you, big brother? How are you holding up?
Clint: I don't know, I -- I keep imagining what my daughter felt being so alone.
Clint: You want to do this?
Viki: We have to.
Hugh: Well, if you do hear from Evangeline, I'll be expecting a call.
Hugh: For the time being, I'll take your word for it. Hello? I'll be right there. Looks like we won't be needing your help after all.
Natalie: That must have been about Todd.
Cristian: Sounded like bad news for Todd and good news for the cops.
Natalie: Do you really think that Evangeline would be hiding Todd?
Cristian: I hope not. But I know she's the type of lawyer that goes to the mat for her clients. I respect that.
Natalie: You really care about her, don't you?
Cristian: She saved my life.
Natalie: You sure it's not more than that?
Cristian: Evangeline and I are friends. And as far as anything more than that goes -- my heart already belongs to somebody else.
Blair: Look, Spencer --
Spencer: No, that's all right. You don't have to answer. If you're not ready, it's ok. I understand. It's more than enough that you were with me, that we were together, and --
[Pounding on door]
Blair: Oh! Who is it?
Officer: Llanview police, ma'am. We need to ask a few questions.
Officer: I'm detective Carlone. This is Captain Hoffman.
Capt. Hoffman: Sorry to disturb you.
Blair: Blair Cramer, and this is Dr. Spencer Truman. Please come in.
Capt. Hoffman: Sir.
Spencer: Commissioner Buchanan -- he stopped by and filled us in about the tow truck and why you have reason to believe it was Todd Manning that stole it.
Det. Carlone: We're thinking he might be headed here.
Spencer: Actually, he was here. Can you get that ring?
Blair: Yeah. Um -- Spencer found this right outside. It's Todd's.
Capt. Hoffman: We're going to look around a little outside.
Blair: Ok. It was right on the windowsill. Please, I have two sleeping children upstairs --
Starr: Mom -- I heard voices. What's going on?
Blair: Your daddy was here earlier, ok?
Tess: I want to know. What is it about crazy girls that turns you on so much? Does it make you feel more together?
Nash: You're not crazy, you're just eccentric.
Tess: "Eccentric," yeah, that would be the word I would use for someone trapped in someone else's psyche.
Nash: Someone who was created just for me.
Tess: Ah. You're good.
Nash: Hey --
Tess: You're good.
Nash: But -- yeah, not to be defensive, but, you know, the whole "me being attracted to high-maintenance women" --
Tess: Oh, give me a break! Admit it, Brennan. I mean, Claudia was altogether weird and strange and completely unstable, wasn’t she?
Nash: No, Buchanan, I'm afraid she wasn’t.
Tess: Oh. And then there's me. You know, a girl that you need that has no place to live, steals your car, makes up this crazy story about her twin sister, is altogether acting strange and odd and unpredictable. And you think in your head, "oh, I've got to have this girl! She's great. She's going to be a barrel of laughs." And altogether nuts and out of her mind. Admit it.
Tess: You're in love with an altar, Nash.
Nash: I am in love with you, the most beautiful woman I've ever met, the mother of my child, the most bright and amazing person I have ever met.
Tess: I think you're the crazy one.
Nash: Crazy in love, ooh, yeah. I'll be right back.
Clint: Are you ready?
Todd: I can't get the image of them going at it out of my head. It just keeps replaying and replaying. I don't know how I'm going to fight.
Evangeline: You're going to fight because you have to.
Todd: I'm releasing you from all this.
Evangeline: What? What are you talking about?
Todd: The last thing I want for you, Evangeline, is to be dragged down with me. That's not fair. You've done so much for me. I think you should go home.
Evangeline: Did you kill Margaret? Did you kill Margaret?
Evangeline: Did you kill your unborn child?
Evangeline: Do you believe that Spencer set you up?
Todd: I know he set me up.
Evangeline: Then don't you tell me that you're going to sit in this house and rot while he takes from you everything that you ever cared about.
Todd: I don't care about Blair anymore.
Evangeline: What about your children, Todd? Do you care about them?
Starr: No, I didn't see my dad, and no, he didn't come to my room, but if he had, I certainly wouldn't tell you.
Blair: Starr? Please, ok.
Starr: No, I didn't see him, ok? I wish that I had.
Hugh: Hello, Blair. Dr. Truman. Did you find anything? Was Manning here?
Det. Carlone: Looks like he was, yeah.
Hugh: Do you have evidence?
Capt. Hoffman: Dr. Truman found a -- a ring.
Det. Carlone: Outside that window, right?
Spencer: Yeah, yeah. That -- that window.
Hugh: Show me.
Capt. Hoffman: Right.
Starr: I don't get it. Dad came here and then he left?
Blair: Yes, we think so.
Starr: What do you mean, you think so? Did you even see him?
Blair: Well, you heard the police officers. Dr. Truman found your daddy's wedding ring sitting on the windowsill right outside.
Starr: Why would dad come all the way here and then leave his wedding ring? Did something happen? Did something happen? Did he see something to make him upset?
Blair: Um -- no. I -- you know what? He probably just -- you know your father. He probably left the ring sitting out there just to let us know that he was ok -- you know, a secret message or something.
Tess: Whoa. Whoa, come here quick.
Nash: What? What, what, what?
Tess: I -- I don't know. It was a punch or a kick. I don't know what it was. It -- wait. Oh. You feel that?
Nash: Ooh. That's powerful! Feisty little fellow just like his mom.
Tess: Well, his dad's no wimp, either.
Nash: Hmm. I guess we all can hold our own when the odds are against us, huh?
Tess: Yeah. You and I have had to fight for every good thing in our lives.
Tess: Promise me it won't be like that for our baby.
Nash: Absolutely not. Our baby is going to feel loved and protected.
Tess: I don't know. It's a scary world out there. So many things can go wrong. What if --
Nash: Shh. Close your eyes. Relax. You with me in this moment? Hmm?
Nash: How do you feel?
Tess: I feel safe and happy.
Nash: Well, that is exactly how our baby is going to feel each and every day of his or her life. The past can't hurt us, Tess. We have love and happiness. Believe in that.
Tess: Well, I know about now, but I'm not so sure about tomorrow.
Nash: Oh, you got to believe in tomorrow.
Tess: Well, believing has never really been my strong suit. Till I met you.
Tess: And now I think that we can be happy.
Nash: We can. And we will. No more problems, no more sadness. You and I have had enough of that to deal with. Hey -- more candles.
Man: Tell everybody your name.
Young Jessica: Tess.
Man: But the last time, you said your name was Jessica.
Young Jessica: I'm Tess.
Man: Ok, Tess. This is going to be just like the last time. We're going to make another movie.
Natalie: So, big boxing match tomorrow, huh?
Cristian: Yeah, pretty big.
Natalie: Think you can take him?
Cristian: Well, this guy is a boxer, by the book, and I am -- I don't really know what I am, so it should be pretty interesting.
Cristian: You going to be there?
Natalie: Um -- actually, I don't think I'm going to be able to make it. I have to stay home and study.
Natalie: Ooh, actually, I got to be going.
Cristian: Wait a minute. Study for what?
Natalie: Um -- my Uncle accepted me into a training program for forensics. I want to be a technician.
Cristian: Well, hey.
Cristian: That's great.
Natalie: Thank you.
Cristian: Really great. I'm happy for you.
Natalie: I mean, it's not a sure thing that I'll get it. I mean, it's -- a lot of people don't even make it through the course and it's very intense, very exacting work.
Cristian: Oh, you'll make it.
Natalie: Well, you know, I just wanted something new for a change, you know?
Cristian: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Tough times.
Cristian: So --
Cristian: Have you heard from Jess?
Natalie: Actually, no, not in a while. The last time I talked to her, she was Tess.
Cristian: Weird, huh, how -- how different the two of them are?
Natalie: "Weird" is right. Do you know that the last time I talked to her, she actually got all up in my face giving me advice?
Cristian: Advice about what?
Natalie: About you.
Natalie: Yeah. She -- she thinks that I'm still in love with you.
Cristian: Wow, wow. Could be Tess is more on the ball than I thought.
Tess: You're the only good thing that's ever happened to me.
Nash: The only good thing?
Tess: You don't believe me?
Nash: No, there had to be other good things, other good people.
Tess: Before you came along, I was just a party girl. I lived for it. I was numb to everything else. Never felt a thing.
Tess: But then, I met you and everything changed. Some guys -- one guy -- saw me for who I really was. You made me see that not every guy wants to use me or hurt me or take something away. For that, I'll always love you.
Clint: Ah! Damn it!
Cristian: Sorry, I shouldn't have said that. I know we're just friends, or trying to be. I'm not wrong about that, am I?
Natalie: No, you're not wrong.
Cristian: All right. I got to go. I got to get some rest -- big fight tomorrow.
Natalie: Good luck, Cristian.
Cristian: Thanks -- you, too, on that job.
Natalie: Thank you.
Cristian: Look, you want me to walk you to your car?
Natalie: No, actually, I probably should wait for Roxy. I need to -- I need her help with something.
Cristian: Oh, Roxy -- right. Good luck with that, too.
Natalie: Yeah, thanks.
Cristian: See you.
Todd: My children are everything to me.
Evangeline: What if Spencer marries Blair? He'll be their stepfather.
Todd: I would never let that happen.
Evangeline: Hmm. Well, if you give up, you won't be able to stop it.
Todd: You got a point.
Evangeline: Yes, I do.
Todd: All right. For Starr and Jack's sake.
Evangeline: You're doing the right thing.
Evangeline: Ok, well, I'm going to -- I'm going to go back home before I'm missed. Are you sure you're going to be all right here alone?
Todd: I don't see it getting any worse.
Evangeline: I'll be back in the morning. In the meantime, don't do anything drastic.
Todd: I won't, I promise.
Starr: Promise me. I want you to promise that you will never hurt my dad.
Blair: Starr, it's ok.
Hugh: I'm going to leave a few officers posted outside your door for your protection, ok?
Starr: I don't need protection against my dad. He's my father. He wouldn't do anything to hurt us or anyone else.
Hugh: Thank you for your cooperation. Let me know if anything changes.
Spencer: We'll let you know.
Blair: Come here. You should go back to bed, sweetie. Got a big day tomorrow.
Starr: I'm worried about dad. It's really cold out.
Blair: I know you are. But daddy's a survivor and you know that. And he wouldn't want you to worry. He wants you to take care of yourself, ok? Why don't you go back to bed, ok?
Starr: Good night.
Spencer: Good night, Starr.
Spencer: I'm so sorry, Blair, about all this. I -- you know, really. All right, it really does tee me off that our time together was ruined and --
Blair: The thought of Todd standing out there watching us -- oh, God. We are so lucky that he didn't come in here and kill us both.
Spencer: Well, maybe he's finally giving up on you.
Nash: If anybody had told me a year ago I'd be here in Napa with a woman I love with all of my heart and a baby on the way --
Tess: If I hadn't have met you, I'd be dead by now.
Nash: Tess, Tess --
Tess: No, no, it's true. It's true, I know it is. But now I have a life, we have a life. And now we're going to bring another life into the world. I -- never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I'd see this day.
Nash: Well, tomorrow we will fly back to Llanview and we will wait for our baby to be born. And everything will be perfect. Trust me.
Tess: I do.
On the next "One Life to Live" --
Adriana: She ran a background check on you.
Rex: That doesn't surprise me.
Adriana: Do you know something I don't know?
Michael: I see what's happening here. You're trying to fix yourself so you can get Natalie back.
Tess: What are you two so uptight about?
