Antonio: I love you.
Nash: I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
Tess: You get the hell out of our lives!
Jessica: I'm not going anywhere. One, two, three -- push.
Doctor: Your babyís here.
Tess: This is my baby. I am not going to let you take her away.
Hugh: Todd Manning murdered Margaret Cochran and his unborn son.
Judge: It is the finding of this court that you be sentenced to death by lethal injection.
Todd: You canít do this to me. I'm innocent. Spencer Truman set me up. I canít go to death row.
John: Mayday, mayday. We're going down!
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?
Blair: I donít love you anymore.
David: Oh, my God. Margaret, you're alive?
John: Stop the Todd Manning execution. The woman he supposedly killed is still alive.
Warden: Open the curtain.
Reporter: This is Karen Maxwell reporting live from Lehigh prison, where Todd Manning is scheduled for execution tonight. Manningís sister, publisher Victoria Davidson, arrived here to be with him on what will be the last night of her brotherís life. And it goes without saying, everyoneís heart goes out to this brave woman.
Jessicaís voice: Momís going through a terrible time.
Tess: Shut up.
Jessicaís voice: She needs her family now. She needs me. You know she does.
Tess: I donít need to hear this right now.
Jessicaís voice: You're not strong enough to handle this, Tess. I need to take over. I need to be with my mother.
Tess: No. No! No!
Nash: Tess, whatís wrong?
Rex: Hey. Sorry it took so long to get here.
Adriana: This is a circus.
Rex: Are you sure you want to be here? I could take you home.
Adriana: I canít leave Starr. This has to be the worst night of her life. Sheís never going to see her father again.
Starr: You canít let him go in there. You canít let him go in there.
Officer: He has the proper credentials.
Starr: He just wants to watch my father die for something that he didnít do.
John: Hey. Hey, take it easy.
Security guard: Hey, hold it right there. You, drop the weapon.
John: All right, take it easy, all right? I'm a police officer.
Security guard: I donít care who --
John: My name is John Mc Bain, I'm with the Llanview -- I'm with the Llanview P.D., ok? Take it easy.
Security guard: I donít care who you say you are. Drop the weapon, now.
John: I am escorting these two to Lehigh prison.
Security guard: Look, you came in on an unauthorized flight that wasnít cleared for landing.
Natalie: We had to do that. Todd Manning is about to be executed at the state prison in just a few minutes, and we have proof that heís innocent. We have to stop it.
John: If you just let me use your phone or your radio, can clear all this up.
Security guard: Shut up and drop the gun now. You are under arrest.
Guard: I'm sorry, ma'am.
Blair: No --
Guard: You're going to have to take your seat.
Blair: I got to talk to him. I got to -- I got to --
Guard: Ma'am --
Blair: I got to tell him that I donít want him to die.
Guard: If you donít sit down, you're going to have to leave.
Blair: Todd -- No, Todd -- no, Todd. No. No, no.
Viki: Blair --
Blair: Viki -- oh, my God, I never wanted this to happen, Viki.
Viki: He knows that. Come on. Come on.
Warden: The microphone will now be turned on so that the prisoner can, if he chooses, make a statement to the victimís family. We will be able to hear him, but he wonít hear you unless I press this button. Even so, please stay quiet, and refrain from emotional outbursts. Mr. Manning, Ellen Foley is here, Margaret Cochranís sister. Is there anything you want to say to her?
Todd: Yes. Yes, yes, yes.
Nash: Tess, whatís wrong?
Tess: Uh -- nothing. I'm sorry. Sorry I freaked you out before. I was just sitting here watching the news, and the execution is freaking me out.
Nash: Thatís all it was?
Tess: Well, that and the results of the paternity test.
Nash: Ah. The paternity test. Itís going to be fine.
Tess: Well, not if Brennan turns out to be Antonioís.
Nash: Thatís not going to happen.
Tess: I know, I know. I just canít help it, you know? Every time I hold her, I just canít help thinking, how many more times am I going to get to do this?
Nash: Now, Tess, you listen to me --
Tess: I know, I know. "Stay positive. You got to believe."
Nash: Thatís right.
Tess: Yeah. How can I be upset holding her, really? Really? Yeah. Everythingís going to be fine. Your mamaís going to make sure of it.
Nash: Thatís right. You got to believe that. I believe that. : No, you donít. But you fake it really well, and I appreciate it.
George: I'm just calling to see how that baby girl is doing.
Nash: Hold on a sec. Business. What the hell do you want?
George: Now, donít go getting too attached before you find out if you're really the father.
Nash: You know what? I've met your daughter. I donít want any parenting advice from you.
George: Itís already too late, isnít it? I hear you barely let that child out of your sight.
Nash: Yeah, you donít know squat.
George: I know that having a daughter -- it changes a man.
Nash: I'm not talking about my daughter with you.
George: Well, fine, we'll talk about mine. I want you out of this town and away from Claudia.
Nash: Claudia followed me here. It wasnít exactly my idea to --
George: Yeah, but itís your problem. See, my daughter can decide to live anywhere she wants. And wherever she decides to live, believe me, you want to live somewhere else.
Nash: This is crazy.
George: I wouldnít use that word about my daughter, not after what you did to her.
Nash: As a matter of fact, mr. Reston, I was referring to you. Donít you think that this whole devoted father thing is going just a little bit over the top?
George: You leave town and get out of my daughterís life, or your daughterís going to have to pay the consequences.
Nash: Now, there you go threatening my daughter again.
George: Whoís threatening? I'm stating facts. And you'd better start facing them.
Dorian: You cannot let this man go in there. Itís not right.
Starr: Heís just trying to talk his way in to see my dad die.
Spencer: I did have to pull some strings --
Dorian: Oh, there, he admits it --
Spencer: So I could be there for Blair to support her.
Starr: She doesnít want you there. Nobody does.
Reporter: Hey, letís go. There appears to be some sort of altercation between the prisonerís daughter and an unidentified man.
Dorian: Hold it right there. Have you no decency? To point a camera and a microphone at this child?
Starr: People should know -- I want people to know.
Rex: Listen, Starr, you do not want to do this right now, ok? Dorianís right.
Reporter: You want to say something, Starr?
Starr: Yes. Spencer Truman is a creep, and he wants my father to die so that he can be with my mother.
Dorian: This is absolutely outrageous. Sheís just a little girl. Please, show some respect for her privacy.
Reporter: You want this story told, donít you, Starr?
Starr: Yes. Want people to know what heís like. He pretended to be our friend, but he was lying! He was lying the whole time, just because he wants my mother.
Dorian: Letís stop now, ok?
Starr: No! You hate my dad, too. But it doesnít matter, does it? My father is a good man. And no one understands that!
Man: Your father didnít want that baby to be born.
Second man: Thatís why he killed the mother.
Starr: No, it not true! He didnít do anything! Please, someone has to help me! Please! He didnít do anything! He didnít kill Margaret or that baby! Please!
Security guard: I said drop the gun.
John: I'm a police officer, all right? If you give me one second, I'll show you my badge.
Margaret: I'm not a prisoner. They're -- they're kidnapping me.
Natalie: Ok, donít listen to her. Do you know who she is? Sheís Margaret Cochran.
Security guard: Look, I donít care if sheís Madonna. My job is to get you to the cops and let them sort it all out. Now, hand over that piece.
John: All right, all right. Take it easy. I'm putting my stuff down. Got it? There go the gun. Now, if you just let me show you my badge, everything will be all right. You got it? Go ahead, have a look. Go ahead.
John: Drop the gun.
Security guard: You canít do this.
John: Drop it. Drop it. Vickers, you make one more move, I swear it'll be your last.
Todd: Uh -- I want to say -- that I'm -- I'm sorry about Margaret. But I want you to know that I didnít kill her. I would never hurt my own children. I want you -- I want you all to look at me now because you're seeing the death of an innocent man.
Nash: Claudia! Claudia, open the damn door. The desk clerk told me he just saw you go --
Claudia: What do you want?
Nash: What are you doing?
Claudia: I just got out of the shower. Keep your pants on. Or donít.
Nash: Cut it out. Let me in. I just came in to tell you to call your father off.
Claudia: I donít know what you're talking about.
Nash: You donít know what I'm talking about? You donít know anything about the phone call I just got?
Claudia: What phone call?
Nash: You and I both know that you play your dad like a poker hand and a stacked deck of cards. Come on, you put him up to it.
Claudia: What? What did he say? Did he threaten you?
Nash: No, heís tried that. He threatened my little girl.
Tess: And you know what? Your dad thinks I'm dumb. Yes, he does. He thinks that I donít know that that phone call upset him. And I do. We both do, right? Hmm? You're not going to be dumb. No, because i am going to teach you everything at you need to know, missy. Yes, I am. You are going to be happy that I'm your mom. Me, not her.
Antonio: Tess --
Tess: I thought you were still in the hospital.
Antonio: I was released.
Antonio: Hello, little one. I missed you. Howís she doing?
Tess: Brennan? Sheís fine.
Antonio: May I hold her?
Tess: Antonio, I was just about to put her down. Excuse me.
Antonio: Come on, Tess, you let me hold her in the hospital.
Tess: Thatís because we were glad that you werenít dead, ok? You shouldn't get used to it because this baby is mine. Sheís mine and Nashís.
Antonio: Ok, you donít know that for sure. And -- it might be good for her to get -- just in case, Tess. Do you want me to take her?
Tess: I know what to do, Antonio, thank you.
Antonio: Of course you do, Tess. All right? But you look tired. You just had a baby, and you've had a hell of a week with duke, and now Todd --
Tess: I can always get her to calm down.
Antonio: Nobody has the touch 100% of the time.
Tess: Oh, I thought that was just me.
Antonio: No. Itís babies. But then they smile, and you forget it all. Come on, Tess. Let me help.
Antonio: Oh, yeah. Hi there. Oh, you smell so nice.
Tess: Her daddy gave her a bath.
Antonio: Hereís you pacifier. How about we try to pacify you? There we go. Huh? I bet I know whatís wrong. You're trying to go to sleep and you donít know how yet. Tell you what -- why donít I try singing to you. Ok? But -- but you canít laugh, ok? Not to my face, anyway, all right? Hmm?
Antonio: Munequita linda de cabellos de oro dime si me quieres.
Warden: This is Warden Fisher. I see. Yes, I understand. That was the governorís office. He has declined to grant a stay. The execution will proceed on schedule. Mr. Manning, do you have anything else to say before yr sentence is carried out?
Security guard: Aah!
John: What kind of security guard doesnít carry a cell phone, huh?
Natalie: John, what do you want to do?
John: We canít afford to get hung up again, all right? Get them in the car. We're going to take his car. Move!
David: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You're a terrible security guard.
Security guard: What am I supposed to do?
John: I suggest you get walking.
Todd: Thereís -- thereís someone I want to talk to. Someone love very much. I want to talk to my sister. I -- I have done so many rotten things in my life. I hate myself for what I did. But I -- I found out you were my sister, and I -- and I saw you fighting victorís legacy. You know, I I tried. I tried to do it myself, but I couldnít. I failed you, I'm so sorry. Thatís why I'm here. I wish I would have learned more from you. I'm -- I'm not going to be able to -- I'm not going to be able to see my children, so I -- I hope that you'll look after them for me. And you teach them how important it is to be like you. You're so strong, and you love so many people. Donít -- donít let them forget how much I love them. Evangeline -- oh, God. Thank you so much for everything. Donít cry, donít cry. Donít cry, dear. I know I havenít made things easy for you. But I have to tell you -- You were more than my lawyer. You were the dearest friend I ever had. I want you get your sight back, ok? I'm glad you donít have to see this. Thatís it. I'm done.
Evangeline: I'll never forget you.
Warden Fisher: Mr. Manning, do you have anything else to say?
Starr: Why doesnít anyone believe me? My dad is innocent.
Reporter: Whatís that, bill? Got it. Starr, we've just gotten word that the governor has refused to grant a stay of execution.
Dorian: How dare you!
Reporter: What do you make of that?
Rex: Ok, ok, thatís it. Turn the camera around. You vulture. Go feed on someone else.
Reporter: She said she wanted to be heard.
Dorian: You heard him!
Reporter: Fine. Come on, Joe.
Dorian: And you, Dr. Truman -- how about you show some decency and get out of here!
Rex: You heard what the lady said. Keep moving.
Spencer: I'm sorry if me being here upset Starr. But I had to be here for Blair, didnít I?
Starr: No, you're not going anywhere. You canít let him in there! Let me in there to see my dad, please! You canít let him in there! What are you doing?
Adriana: This is the worst thing I've ever seen.
Rex: A public killing? Yeah, I'd say it qualifies.
Adriana: You know, people are always saying "such-and-such was the worst day of my life," and then they forget about it and move on. This will always be the worst day of Starrís life.
Rex: I just canít believe Truman just stood there and watched her go through it.
Adriana: My mother hates him.
Rex: Well, sheís not always wrong about people.
Adriana: Do you really think Dr. Truman had something to do with what happened to Todd?
Rex: I think he had everything to do with it. So does Evangeline. He set Todd up, which was easy for him, Todd being the jerk that he is a lot of the time.
Adriana: Thatís why you helped Todd escape?
Rex: Somebody had to be on Toddís side. Trumanís the great doctor -- you know, the miracle worker. Nobody can touch him.
Margaret: I have to go to the little girlís room.
John: I suggest you hold it.
David: Look, Margaretís the only person you need to save Todd. I'm just complicating things here.
Natalie: Well, John likes things complicated, donít you, John?
John: Once this is over, I'm going to deal with you. You still have to pay for what you did to my old man.
David: I'm telling you, you got the wrong guy.
John: Tell it to the judge. But after I get done with my case, I donít think heís going to be listening. You're going away for a long, long time.
David: Even if I was the kid in that picture, that sketch --
John: Itís over, Vickers. Donít you get it? You're out of options.
David: Yeah, well, it seems to me the only person out of options right now is Todd Manning. Thereís no way we're getting to that prison in time.
John: For the first time since I've known you, you may actually be telling the truth.
Warden Fisher: Ma'am, you have to get yourself under control.
Blair: No, I have to talk to him.
Warden Fisher: You canít.
Blair: I have to tell him how sorry I am.
Warden Fisher: Please, ma'am --
Blair: I'm sorry.
Warden Fisher: You have --
Blair: He wants to say something to me. I know he does.
Warden Fisher: He had his chance.
Blair: No. We have two children together.
Warden Fisher: He had the opportunity.
Blair: Please --
Todd: I have something to say to her.
Ellen: How long does he get to torture us?
Viki: Ms. Foley, please. He will be gone soon.
Todd: I'm going to haunt you. Just because I'm dead doesnít mean you can get rid of me. You're going to realize I'm innocent one of these days. And then you're never going to get a momentís peace. I still love you, but I canít forgive you. I canít forgive you. No, itís too late, I'm not going to forgive you. Thatís all I have to say.
Warden Fisher: Proceed, please.
Todd: Oh, my God. Oh, God. No. No. No. No, no. Oh. Oh.
Antonio: Well -- this familyís been going through a lot over the last few weeks -- um, more than any other family ought to --
Tess: You donít think that I know that, Antonio? Duke was just a kid, kevin looks like hell, and although I personally have absolutely no use for Todd, Viki is sure that he didnít kill that woman.
Antonio: And Vikiís had a hell of a year -- with her heart problems.
Tess: Oh, and me, yeah. That was tough.
Antonio: Tess, I didnít say that.
Tess: Oh, I'm psychic.
Antonio: And -- and I'm not here to give you a hard time, Tess. Itís just that Jessica was always the one everyone leaned on.
Tess: Are you kidding me?
Antonio: No. No, I'm not kidding you.
Antonio: Tess, Jessica had a strength that you just donít understand right now this family is in crisis and they need her.
Tess: You're incredible. Unbelievable. The only reason that you've been nice to me at all is so you could stick it to me. Unbelievable.
Antonio: No, that -- look, Tess, I know -- I know you think you're fighting for your life, but while you're doing that, you're destroying someone, someone beautiful. Do you hear me?
Tess: Shut up, Antonio.
Antonio: Jessica? Jessica, can you hear me?
John: You see any flashing red lights back there?
Natalie: Hey, look, thereís a gas station up ahead. Maybe we can stop and see if it has a pay phone.
Margaret: And a bathroom.
John: We're not stopping.
Natalie: John, you could call the warden again and see if -- you could tell them that Margaret Cochranís alive.
John: Even if we could get through at this point, they'll just think itís a crank.
Natalie: It might help op the execution.
John: Uh-uh. Letís see if we can find out whatís going on.
Radio announcer: The governor has refused the request by the attorney representing Todd Manning for a stay of execution. Manning is scheduled to die at 9:00, which is two minutes from now.
Natalie: Look -- look at that sign. It says "Lehigh State Prison, three miles."
Evangeline: What is he doing here?
Viki: Well, heís not a member of this family.
Spencer: I wanted to be here with you.
Evangeline: No. No, there must be some mistake. No, he has no right to be here.
Bo: Let me see your pass. Itís valid. Ahem.
Viki: Two devastating things have happened to my family in the last week, and somehow you've been involved in both of them. Now, why is that, Dr. Truman?
Spencer: You want me to leave?
Warden Fisher: It is 9:00. Please take your seats. Let it be known that on this day, the will of the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania --
Viki: "Will of the people?" This is a travesty.
Warden Fisher: Is to be carried out. I hereby order that Todd Manning be put to death by lethal injection for two counts of first-degree murder with special circumstances. May God have mercy on his soul. I feel these tingling sensations
Singer: Time catch my breath have my heart steal my soul alone all I know was a lie lie pray with me pray for me freedom stay with me my soul be with me free me faraway dreams days of light with you all my hopes spring from this donít leave pray with me pray for me be with me free me Floating I'm reaching for nothing hold me I'm bleeding falling falling donít speak donít talk help me falling down breathing fade out let me out
Natalie: Thereís the gate.
John: Ahem. Damn it.
John: Look at all those protesters -- we'll never get through in time. All right, letís go try. Letís try and go around the back entrance.
Nash: Capricorn is a bar, you're an alcoholic.
Nash: You just got out of therapy. Even Antonio wouldnít give someone like you a job in a place like that.
Claudia: Ask him.
Nash: Oh, I will. But in the meantime, call your father off.
Claudia: I donít know what I'm going to say to him.
Nash: Think of something! If anything happens to my little girl, your daddyís going to find out that he is not the only one who can make threats.
Antonio: We need you, Jessica. Your mom and dad, they need you. The baby needs you.
Tess: Shut up, Antonio. Leave me alone.
Antonio: I need you. I need the woman I love.
John: You keep your eye on Vickers, all right? We're going inside.
Natalie: Good luck.
John: Thanks. Letís go.
Margaret: You donít have to be so rough.
John: Hey, I'm one of the few people who remembers who started this whole thing. Now, letís go. Come on.
Blair: Heís not breathing.
Viki: Oh, my God.
John: I'm a police officer. Tell them to stop the execution.
Blair: What have they done to him?
Guard: You canít go in there. Thereís an execution in progress.
John: Then get in there and stop it because I got the victim right here!
Warden Fisher: Thatís it. Mr. Manning is gone.
On the next "One Life to Live" --
Nash: Oh, hey. Whatís going on here?
John: Stop! Stop the execution!
Viki: Oh, my God!
Blair: Todd! Todd!
Evangeline: Oh, my God.
