Guard: Cheer up. Death row ain't the worst place in this joint.
Cristian: I didn't want to do this at Llanfair with everything that's going on with Tess.
Natalie: Cristian, you're freaking me out. Oh, my God, it's your hand. The doctor said you canít paint anymore.
Cristian: No, no, my hand's fine. I'm -- I'm not hurt. But I canít do this anymore.
Natalie: Canít do what?
Cristian: This -- you and me. It's over.
Michael: Hey, bro.
John: Is this me?
Michael: Yeah, I think it's still cold.
John: I'm sorry I'm late.
Michael: Oh. No worries. You working on dad's case?
John: Yeah, I lost track of time. I did track down the anesthesiologist and the scrub nurse who were in the O.R. the night that dad died.
Michael: That's great.
John: It is if they talk. Right now, it's just a couple of names.
Michael: It's better than nothing, John.
John: It's a step forward, anyway.
David: I have news.
Paige: About Spencer?
David: What day did you help Spencer deliver Margaret's baby?
Paige: It was February 6.
David: February 6 -- now, February 7, he flew to Thailand.
Paige: Thailand? That's halfway around the world.
Margaret: "Avian guilty party." Hmm.
Guard: You got company, Manning.
Evangeline: Are you all right? Uh -- I came as soon as you were cleared for visitors. The rules are more stringent when it comes to -- Todd, they set a date for your execution.
Evangeline: About six weeks.
Todd: What's the date?
Evangeline: May 26.
Hugh: Hey, Keith, the -- the goal is the other way, buddy. Big kick, though. Here. You all right?
Kelly: Yeah, I'm fine.
Hugh: You should have seen the look on your face.
Kelly: Oh, yeah, I'm sure it was a laugh riot. Too bad it didn't get me in the head.
Hugh: Ooh. You're in a mood.
Kelly: Well, I went for a run to try and clear my head, which didn't work. And I didn't expect to be pelted by soccer balls in the park and laughed at by a man acting like a 4-year-old.
Hugh: I'm not winning any points here, am I? Hey -- ah! No, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike --
Marcie: Lindsay, we've already been to 10 bridal shops. If I have to try on another wedding dress, I think I'm going to kill myself.
Lindsay: You know what they say? Beauty hurts.
Marcie: I thought this was supposed to be a happy moment.
Lindsay: Well, it is, when we find the perfect gown, and we're going to find it.
Marcie: Look, it's just -- you know, I've always had this picture in my head. You know, I've always imagined what I was going to look like walking down the aisle in my wedding dress, and I'm just starting to wonder -- you know, maybe we're looking in the wrong kind of place.
Lindsay: Marcie, this is the best bridal salon in Pennsylvania. The guy that owns this goes to the New York City fashion runways to -- to bring these dresses in.
Marcie: Yeah, but that's exactly it. It's couture. They donít make anything over a size six. And in case you haven't noticed, I'm not a supermodel.
Lindsay: And who'd want to be one of those? They donít even have a date on Saturday night.
Lindsay: You're a beautiful woman.
Marcie: I know, and I -- you know what? I feel like that most of the time, but in a place like this, I donít fit in.
Todd: I'm going to die on May 26.
Evangeline: I didn't want you to have to hear it from a stranger.
Todd: Well, now I can start counting down the seconds.
Evangeline: Stop it. Stop sounding so defeatist. It's not helping.
Todd: What would be an appropriate response?
Evangeline: I'm not going to let them kill you.
Todd: Oh. You weren't going to let them convict me, either.
Evangeline: You refused your right to an appeal, Todd. You did that. Now, I'm sorry. I'm sorry that it had to come to this. I'm sorry we didn't solve this before they caught you. You know, after everything I've do, I actually still feel like I -- I let you down. But it's not over. I'm going to fight day and night, and I'm going to see if I can win you a stay of execution.
Todd: Oh, please, you're wasting your time with the stay. The only way to get me out of here is to implicate the real killer.
Paige: We were just discussing the Tsunami relief efforts in Southeast Asia.
David: I had this dream that I was being swept away by this enormous --
David: How did you know?
Paige: Uh -- and the -- the world medical alliance called my office. They're looking for -- for doctors to help overseas.
Blair: Really? Well, I -- well, "Craze" has a discretionary fund. Maybe I could help out -- contribute somehow, sponsor somebody.
Paige: Oh, that -- that's really generous of you.
Spencer: And I have a friend with the W.M.A.
Paige: I -- I've got it covered. And besides, it looks like you have your hands full here.
Blair: Yeah. I'm going to go get us a table.
Spencer: You're awfully quiet, little brother.
David: Well, all this humanitarian talk is giving me goose bumps that I canít get rid of. Or hives. You're both doctors. Are these goose bumps or hives?
David: Think my bit about the dream and the wave was good, donít you? You think he bought it?
Paige: Who cares? So, what -- why do you think Spencer would go to Thailand the day after Margaret's baby was born?
David: To get that baby as far away from Llanview as possible.
Spencer: You all right?
Blair: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. I just hate living in a small town, you know? It feels like everybody's looking at you, making judgments.
Spencer: Listen, if you're not ready, then --
Blair: No, look, it's not you. I donít think I'll ever get that picture of Starr's face out of my mind when she saw us together. I mean, I broke her heart.
Spencer: Actually, Todd did that. Ahem.
Blair: Well, still, I donít think we're ever going to be able to look at each other the same.
Spencer: Yeah, it'll be all right. She'll be all right. Just -- she just needs a little time. You all do.
Michael: you know, I'm off this afternoon. I can go to the hospital with you, help you conduct your interviews.
John: Not this time, Mike.
Michael: John, I speak these people's language.
John: Snyder's not practicing anymore. These two still have jobs. If they think we're conducting some sort of vigilante mission --
Michael: It seems less like a personal vendetta then a police investigation if you go on your own. I got it. Do me a favor, though. Try and control your temper.
John: What do you think I'm going to do, throw them against the wall, start beating them?
Michael: No, I think that would never happen. Seriously. You tend to get a little frustrated, you come on a little strong. You know what I mean?
John: Just having a conversation here, Mike. Anything they can tell us about the surgery is something that we donít have now, all right? And if it gets too technical, I'll just write it down and I'll bring it to you. You can tell me about it.
Michael: Works for me. Natalie helping out on this thing?
John: Well, she said she's staying out of it, but it wouldn't be the first time she misled me.
Natalie: What do you mean, it's over? What "it?"
Cristian: I'm talking about us.
Natalie: Cris --
Cristian: Look, I know I've been down this road before a few times, but let me just get this out. Ever since the day I got out of Statesville, I've been trying to win you back. I mean, I really -- I really thought that we could pick up where we left off, but you keep telling me that that's -- that's impossible, that we've changed too much, that we canít go back.
Natalie: I wasn't trying to be cruel, ok? I -- I was just hurting so much. And I just canít seem to get over what you did, the lie. I mean, I donít know -- maybe if you had made some other choices --
Cristian: I know.
Natalie: All of a sudden, you're getting it. Why now?
Cristian: I canít keep beating my head against a brick wall. Look, I hear what you've been saying. It just -- it took me a while.
Natalie: I still care about you, Cristian.
Cristian: I know. But you donít love me anymore.
Natalie: I donít know what you want me to say.
Cristian: Nothing. You donít have to say anything. I'm just trying to tell you that now I see something I couldn't see before.
Cristian: A future. Without you in it. I need to live my life, Natalie. So I have to let you go.
Lindsay: Wow. Yeah, I know. Huh. Um -- so, are you telling me that -- that you think that you're too big for these dresses?
Marcie: Lindsay, I am too big for these dresses. I mean, they only make them in one size. If you're not a size six, then you're not worth the fabric.
Lindsay: Well, it's not really about that. It's just that if they carried every style in ever size, they'd need a warehouse to do it, and you canít charge $6,000 for a dress to people who shop in warehouses.
Marcie: 6,000 -- 6,000? $6,000? You're kidding me, right? Because I canít afford $6,000 for a dress that I'm going to wear once in my life, Lindsay. I donít have that kind of --
Lindsay: And P.S., this is my treat. For Jen.
Marcie: Jen looked so beautiful in everything. Especially her wedding dresses.
Lindsay: This is your special day.
Marcie: But you wish I was Jen, right? I mean, I -- that's -- that's the reason you're doing all this, isn't it?
Marcie: Uh-huh. And you know what? I get it, because I feel like Jen's here, you know, through you. But I'm not Jen and -- and, you know, I canít replace her.
Hugh: Hey, hey, hey, hey! Four on one. You guys going to let a senior citizen like me get you? Go ahead. Stop. All right, ready? Here we go. Passing drills. Go. Teamwork. Remember, teamwork? I try to teach them teamwork, but they just kick each other in the shins all the time.
Kelly: So I didn't know you had kids.
Hugh: Yeah. It gets me out of the office. They're all foster kids, so -- the rest of them are over in that -- that field, running laps.
Kelly: They seem to really like you.
Hugh: Yeah, well, it -- it goes both ways. They're -- most of them move from foster home to foster home and they donít have a lot of consistency in their lives, so I make sure they get me once a week. So it's just as good for me as it is for them. It reminds me of home.
Kelly: You played soccer?
Hugh: Yeah, we played all kinds of stuff. I had lots of brothers and sisters, all shapes and sizes, and -- so it was more like a club than a family. How about you?
Kelly: Oh, no, I -- I always wanted a big family, but it was really mostly just me. And then I had a brother, but he died.
Hugh: Oh. I'm sorry.
Kelly: Yeah -- we -- we really didn't know each other long before he died, but -- a lot happened in a short time. It was kind of a crazy year.
Hugh: Yeah, I imagine. Wow. Well, maybe you can have a big family of your own someday.
Kelly: Yeah. They seem like really good kids.
Hugh: Kelly, are you all right?
Paige: That baby is -- it -- it's dead. You and I cleaned the blood off the warehouse floor.
David: Spencer is capable of a lot of things, but he usually thinks the person on the other end is getting what they deserve. That little baby didn't have time to do anything to him yet.
Paige: Yeah, but Spencer has changed. I mean, the old Spencer -- the man that I married -- he was manipulative, he was arrogant, but -- but underneath it all, he was still a human being.
David: He doesn't have a soft, gooey center, Paige. You're giving him too much credit.
Paige: Look, neither of us knows what Spencer's capable of now.
David: Margaret's dead, Todd is as good as dead, and you and Bo are under Spencer's thumb permanently.
Paige: But you're saying that Todd's baby is still out there.
David: Alive and well and living in Thailand. I'd bet my life on it.
Margaret: Um -- I'll have the shrimp pad Thai, again. I just canít seem to get enough of it. Thanks.
Evangeline: Todd, I'm in this with you, remember? I won't let you push me away.
Todd: Donít talk to me about hope when I'm sitting in this cell! Donít talk to me about hope when I see my -- my wife having sex with another man! I'm sitting in here convicted of two murders I didn't commit! They're going to kill me for it! And they canít wait to kill me. I don't see any hope!
Evangeline: I'm following every lead that I have, and none of them lead back to Spencer.
Todd: Well, I donít know what to tell you, then, because he did it. He left something somewhere. I canít fight from in here. You're going to have to do it for me. You're going to have to fight for me. You're going to have to go and try harder. I'm going to be executed in six weeks.
Evangeline: Well, what would you suggest I do that I haven't done?
Todd: You know what you can do? You can talk to your boyfriend -- your ex-boyfriend.
Evangeline: What? What is John going to do?
Todd: He's supposed to be out there looking for the truth.
Evangeline: The case is closed.
Todd: I -- you know, I thought he cared about the truth. If he doesn't, neither do you.
Cristian: You canít live your life when you're hung up on something you canít have. And that becomes really clear when you see someone living because they canít let go.
Natalie: I've let go, Cristian.
Cristian: Yeah. Yeah, I know.
Natalie: We're not together anymore, so why does this feel like we're breaking up?
Cristian: Because I think this is it. I love you. But I need to feel that back.
Natalie: I loved you once.
Cristian: Canít wait around for you to love me again. Look, I'm going to -- I'm going to go for a walk. I'm sorry, can you close the door when you leave?
Natalie: Cristian --
Natalie: Hey, Rex, it's Natalie. Um -- I need to talk to you. I mean, it's nothing important. It's just that something happened with Cristian. It's not a -- actually, it is a big deal. I'm -- I'm kind of messed up right now. Could you just -- cod you just call me back?
Natalie: Mom -- she's messed up with Jess. Roxy -- I canít go there.
Paige: Listen, Spencer doesn't make mistakes. I mean, he got away with murder. Right? He set up Todd, Bo, me, you.
David: Yeah, but you're forgetting the x factor. Spencer planned on delivering Margaret's baby. He just didn't plan on needing your help. Margaret's always been a loose cannon. She probably mouthed off to him one too many times and he had to kill her. So all of a sudden, he's stuck with a real murder and a real baby.
Paige: Oh, my God -- the baby was Spencer's safety net. Look, if Todd could exonerate himself, he would go after Spencer, right?
David: Then Spencer uses the baby card. Oh, that's perfect blackmail. Oh, you got to hand it to Spencer. He's always got his bases covered, doesn't he?
Paige: So then Spencer didn't kill Margaret's baby. But I still donít get it. Why Thailand?
David: Well, if you were stuck with a supposedly dead by from a murdered mother and a convicted felon who couldn't die fast enough, and you wanted to stash that baby somewhere on the planet, Thailand's about the best place you could find to hide that thing.
Evangeline: I came all the way out here to comfort you. How dare you say that I donít care about the truth?
Todd: Have you hired a private investigator?
Evangeline: Yes! I have a man in Chicago looking for Denton.
Todd: Amen. Evangeline, you need an army. You need someone to find out what Paige miller is covering and why. You need someone to tail David Vickers. You need someone to tail Truman.
Evangeline: What if Spencer didn't do it?
Evangeline: I canít make it true just because we need it to be.
Todd: He practically admitted it to me. The son of a bitch couldn't stop gloating in front of me. And I would have nailed that son of a bitch if you hadn't insisted I stay at lion's heart.
Evangeline: What? I canít believe you! Todd, I am your one friend, and you're throwing accusations at me and doing nothing --
Todd: What can I do from here?
Evangeline: Nothing to help yourself. I donít know. Maybe it's time you confess.
Man: John Mc Bain?
John: Do I know you?
Man: My name is Ray Bateman Sr. You killed my son.
Woman: Hi, may I help you ladies?
Lindsay: Yes, we're looking for the perfect wedding gown.
Woman: Oh. For you?
Lindsay: Oh, no. No, no. For this glowing bride-to-be.
Marcie: Uh-huh. Hi.
Woman: Uh-huh. Do you know what you have in mind?
Marcie: Oh, yeah. I cut out this page from one of those wedding magazines, you know. And I was thinking that maybe something like this -- what do you think?
Woman: Uh -- maybe something that would elongate you just a little bit more.
Marcie: I know, because I'm short. I get that all the time. Carry stilts?
Woman: Well, we can recommend you to an excellent shoe store.
Lindsay: Why donít we start this over? This is Marcie.
Lindsay: She's the bride-to-be.
Lindsay: And I want her to have the best. And you are --
Marcie: You're kidding, right? I mean -- ok, she's not kidding. Ahem.
Lindsay: Why donít hope and I pick out a few dresses while you look around a little bit? How about that?
Lindsay: Can I just talk to you for a second over here?
Hope: Of course.
Lindsay: This is a bridal shop, isn't it?
Hope: Your point?
Lindsay: That beautiful young woman over there is getting married soon, and she's been to hell and back over the last two years. And I'm not going to let some stuck-up saleswoman make her feel bad about herself on what's supposed to be the happiest day of her life. Am I making myself clear?
Michael: What do you want?
John: It's ok, Mike. Your son was the man I shot in the church.
Ray: His name was Ray Bateman Jr.
Michael: I'm sorry, but your son was going to kill me. If my brother hadn't done what he did, we would both be dead.
Ray: You couldn't have shot him in the leg or the shoulder? Why'd you have to kill him?
John: I'm sorry for your loss, but your son threatened my brother's life. I had to do my job.
Ray: Your job made an orphan out of a 12-year-old boy. Did you know that? Did you even bother to ask?
Ray: Ray had problems, but he deserved a chance. And my grandson deserved the chance to know his father. He won't have that now, thanks to you. So donít bother telling me you're sorry. I donít want to hear it. No need to shoot. I'm not a criminal, just a working stiff trying to provide for his family, the same as ray. He was trying. It wasn't going great, but he had heart. He would've turned things around. See, I know how it must've looked to a guy like you, but my son wasn't a hopeless case.
Michael: Look, man --
Ray: You ruined three generations of a family with one shot! I just wanted you to know that.
Todd: Confess? Confess to what?
Evangeline: I donít know. I donít even know if it'll work.
Todd: You want me to confess to killing Margaret?
Evangeline: We need to get the court to reopen the case, at least get the state to postpone the execution for a few more weeks. We need time.
Todd: Won't that put me on the fast track to the execution?
Evangeline: No. No, not necessarily. It's a stall tactic and it could work, actually. We could petition for clemency.
Todd: I donít know. It worked so well the first time.
Evangeline: Well, you didn't even read the damn statement, Todd. You didn't address the judge, you didn't address the jury. You -- you looked at Blair and you said, "I didn't do it." She didn't even look convinced.
Todd: You were right. Is that what you want to hear, you were --
Evangeline: No. I want to keep you alive long enough to find out who actually did this. And six weeks may not be enough time.
Todd: I'm sorry, I canít. I canít. I canít confess, Evangeline. I think it would just destroy my kids. And I think I'd rather die. I'd rather be executed for the wrong crime than the right reason.
Evangeline: Todd. Man, I wish the jury could see you the way I see you. I wish they could hear you say things like that. It would be all the proof they need.
Todd: Six weeks. I have six weeks.
Evangeline: We have six weeks. We have six weeks.
Hugh: Wow, you are nothing if not sophisticated.
Kelly: Sorry, it's a little minor meltdown. I didn't have a tissue, so --
Hugh: You improvised, yeah. I got two more sleeves if you run out of space. Are you ok?
Hugh: All right. I'm not going to ask you what it was about. Donít worry.
Hugh: You know, I know -- I know a little bit about what happened with your son and I'm not going to try to say I understand, because I never had kids. But --
Kelly: Yeah, well -- the love you feel for your child is like nothing else. You can be so deeply in love with someone. When you hold your kid in your arms -- nothing like that. Um -- sorry. I -- I think it's really great what you're doing with those kids.
Hugh: Yeah. I wonder if you'd be saying that if that soccer ball had beaned you in the head.
Kelly: Yeah, I would.
Hope: And I can have your size by the end of the week.
Marcie: I mean, this might be -- it is so -- it's awful.
Lindsay: It's a wonderful dress, but --
Marcie: I look like a parade float!
Hope: It's a lot of dress for you, that's all.
Marcie: Yeah. You mean, it's a lot of me for the dress.
Lindsay: No, I -- you know what? It doesn't make you look big, it just doesn't -- accentuate the positive.
Marcie: You mean my pretty face?
Lindsay: No, I mean your beautiful face. And you have a great body. We just have to find a dress that's going to show that off. And there's a perfect dress out there for everybody. And if we donít find it here, we're going to find it somewhere.
Marcie: Yeah, well, we've looked 10 million places, Lindsay. I mean, I thought this was going to be the perfect dress, and --
Hope: Would you let me do my job? I put women together with dresses every day, all day. And your mother's right. There is a perfect dress for everyone. The trick is making the right match. And I'd like to help, if you're up for it.
Lindsay: What do you think? Should we have faith in Hope?
Michael: That was a nightmare, man. That happen to you a lot?
John: Facing off with the family of perps I took out in the line of duty? No, not often.
Michael: I'm sorry.
John: For me or him?
Michael: I donít know what you mean.
John: I left a 12-year-old boy without a father. Like the guy who killed our dad.
Michael: No, John, it was nothing like that, ok? Nothing like that, and you know it.
John: No, I donít.
Michael: John -- John, man, come on!
Spencer: I'm going to talk to Michael for a second. I'll be right back, all right?
Blair: All right, that's ok.
Spencer: Yeah, he's -- he's a good kid. He's going to be a topnotch surgeon one day.
David: I should go talk to Blair.
Paige: No, no, Spencer's right over there.
David: She still doesn't realize who she's falling for. Somebody's got to tell her.
[Knock on door]
Cristian: Hey. Bad day?
Evangeline: You, too?
Evangeline: Are you hungry?
Cristian: I'm always hungry. What happened?
Evangeline: Got in a fight with Todd. I just argued with the man I put on death row.
Cristian: He put himself there.
Evangeline: Yeah, well, he doesn't think so. He just accused me of not doing enough to help him. I donít know -- maybe he's right. What happened to you?
Cristian: I told Natalie it's over. That if she canít love me the way I love her, then I have to move on.
Evangeline: Maybe we should get drinks instead.
David: I've been waiting for my brother the barnacle to detach himself from you.
Blair: I have nothing to say to you, David.
David: Are you two getting serious?
Blair: Oh -- you are such a jerk!
David: You mean that as a compliment, right?
Blair: Why are you and Paige so determined to undermine Spencer, huh? Well, you know what? It's not going to work. He is a good man. He's a surgeon, he saves lives. He cares about me and my kids. And you know what? I care about him. I care about him a lot more than I thought I would. Especially after Todd. I just wish --
David: You wish what, Blair?
Blair: I just wish you and Paige would leave him alone and let him live his life, instead of trying ruin it.
Blair: He's such an idiot.
Spencer: What was that all about?
Blair: Oh -- just thought I'd better set your brother straight.
Paige: That looked like it went well.
David: I just wish she knew that her new boyfriend was trying to frame half the town for murder.
Lindsay: Ok, you're a genius.
Marcie: This -- that dress so perfect. I mean, I didn't even look like myself.
Lindsay: Yes, you do. And you look like it's the happiest day of your life.
Hope: Oh, and if you look like this here, just imagine how beautiful you're going to look on your wedding day. Now, I hope he deserves you.
Marcie: He does. He's perfect. I think I'm going to call him right now.
Lindsay: Ok. Let's do this, then.
Girl: You coming back here?
Hugh: Yes, I am coming back. How's your dribble, Kelly?
Kelly: Oh, it's good. I got it with my sleeve.
Hugh: I'm talking about soccer. Do you want to kick the ball around?
Girl: We can play girls against guys.
Hugh: That's right, we can.
Kelly: Um -- sure, yeah, that sounds good. Let's teach these guys something.
Hugh: Let's do it. Come on. Well, that smile -- your mood's better.
Kelly: What mood?
David: Did you enjoy that little performance?
David: The baby and Thailand are the keys to this entire thing. We find the kid, we trace the dots back to Spencer. We put Spencer away for Margaret's murder, we put him away for good.
Margaret: Eight letters. "Avian guilty party." Jailbird! "Jailbird."
Cristian: I'm not saying that I'm over her. I would have done anything to get back what we had, but that's not the way things work. So, I'm moving on.
Evangeline: Please -- tell me you didn't give her the "if you love something, set it free" speech.
Cristian: Thought about it.
Evangeline: But you didn't, right? I mean, not that it's not a wonderful and wise sentiment, but --
Cristian: Hey, hey, hey --
Cristian: Come on, come on. It was bad enough with the instant replay. Canít we just sit here and enjoy our beers?
John: You all right?
Natalie: What the hell's going on here?
On the next "One Life to Live" --
Cristian: I'm moving on, with or without Natalie. I have you to thank.
John: Maybe in a different time, in a different place.
Natalie: What? Live happily ever after?
Adriana: I donít know what to say.
Rex: Then stop talking.
