Rex: Agh --

Adriana: No -- leave him alone! Please stop it! Stop, please! Please!

Evangeline: This is getting to be a habit.

Cristian: Yeah -- one I donít want to break.

Evangeline: Cris, I've never had good timing when it comes to relationships. It always seems like itís -- itís the wrong guy at the right time, or the other way around, you know?

Cristian: So which one am I?

Evangeline: Definitely the right guy.

Cristian: Ok, then stop talking.

Evangeline: If I stop talking, we're going to kiss again, and if we kiss again, we'll--

Cristian: We're going to make love?

Evangeline: That was direct.

Cristian: Well, if you ask me, I think we need to be a hell of a lot more direct a lot more often.

Natalie: John, stop! You canít do this!

Vincent: Hey. Yeah, this is all on you, lieutenant. See, the thing is you came after me first. You know, I should press charges on my employeeís behalf. But, you know, I'm not going to do that because I'm a nice guy, and I'm not really looking for any trouble.

Natalie: All right, come on, come on, come on. Letís get out of here. Donít take the bait, come on!

David: So thatís it, Spencer. I'm changing my plea to guilty.

Spencer: Just tell me you havenít made up your mind about this. This is not your final decision. I mean, you are going to actually put some very serious thought into this, arenít you? All right, thereís Blair. Donít say a word, all right?

David: You want me to keep my mouth shut.

Blair: So, what did I miss, guys?

John: What the hell did I just do?

Bo: Come in. Hey, Hugh. Could you close the door, please?

Hugh: Sure.

Bo: You know why I called you down here.

Hugh: Doesnít have to come to this, Bo. We're still investigating --

Bo: No, Hugh, I donít have a choice, all right? But I want to thank you for standing by me. I know that the mayorís all over you right now about me still being in the job while all these accusations are flying around. Anyway -- my -- my gun, and my badge.

Cristian: You look shocked.

Evangeline: Do you blame me? You kind of caught me off-guard a little bit there.

Cristian: Well, does it make you feel uncomfortable, you know, talking about sex?

Evangeline: No. No. But where did that come from all of a sudden?

Cristian: Well, I donít think it was sudden at all. I've actually been thinking about it for a while. Havenít you?

Evangeline: Yeah. I mean, sometimes. But, Cris --

Cristian: But you're all stressed out with, you know, trying to adjust to whatís happened to you, thinking you're not a good lawyer and all -- which is bull, by the way. But my point is I just think -- I mean, I know things have been tough for you, but maybe we should stop worrying about what we canít control and maybe start focusing on what we can.

Evangeline: Wait, wait, wait. So what you're saying is that if we make love, the whole blind, unemployable thing will just go away, you know, disappear from my overactive mind? You sure give yourself a lot of credit there, player. And you can stop smiling now.

Cristian: How do you know I'm smiling?

Evangeline: Because I just know.

Cristian: I'm sorry, I canít help it.

Evangeline: And what exactly do you find so amusing about me, senor Vega?

Cristian: Bueno, Senorita Williamson. Itís just that every time we talk about things, you kind of turn it into lawyer terms.

Evangeline: I do not.

Cristian: Yes, you do, all the time. You're very lawyerlike.

Evangeline: Well, I wonder why. And if you donít like it, why are you so hot to sleep with me?

Cristian: Oh. Well, thatís because you're brilliant and beautiful and kind and very funny, thatís why.

Evangeline: Is this what you do -- all this talking, you know -- during --

Hugh: We have to fight this, Bo, and I'll back you all the way.

Bo: Hugh, I'm not going to let you ruin your career. I'm going to step down to an inactive status. Thatís by the book, that the only thing I can do.

Hugh: There has to be another way.

Bo: Not unless I can prove that I was set up. Hugh, I do appreciate your faith in me, and I know the pressure you're under right now, but you got to treat me like you would any other suspect.

Hugh: I wish I knew how to stop this. I wish I knew how to prove that it all traces back to Spencer Truman.

Bo: Hugh. You're not alone.

Spencer: Well, it is getting late. I think we should take off. What do you say?

Blair: Ok.

Spencer: See you later, David.

Blair: David, you know what? If I were you, I really wouldnít hang out anywhere near John McBain, because you donít need a public scene.

David: Finally, some levelheaded advice. Thank you, Blair.

Blair: You're welcome.

Spencer: Wait 30 minutes, come to my room.

Natalie: Letís go somewhere we can talk.

Vincent: I tell you --

Layla: W did you do that?

Vincent: How did I do what?

Layla: You managed to make it look like that altercation with John wasnít your fault at all.

Adriana: Let him go! Rex! Hey! Rex, are you ok?

John: Look, just understand what you did, all right? This -- this guy, heís a known criminal in Atlantic City.

Natalie: I know, I know, ok? I should've have kept it from you. Look, what happened at Capricorn -- itís all my fault, totally on me.

John: No, I'm the e who lost it and popped the bodyguard. Thatís my responsibility. But getting mixed up with this Vince Jones -- thatís on you.

Natalie: So what happened? Why -- why did you go off on him?

John: I donít know. You know, guys like that, they just represent everything thatís wrong to me, you know? No one wants to make it honest anymore, you know. Everybody just wants to be a thug. You know, why work for it when you can steal it? Itís no excuse. I carry a badge and I should know -- I should know better, you know? Hell, Bo right now -- heís fighting for his job and his reputation, and then I go and risk everything, all for nothing.

Natalie: You know, I have a theory. I'll tell you, if you promise not to throw things around. Ok, my theory is you didnít go off on him because you hate him so much. You went off on him because of how much you like me.

Vincent: Ah. How out a toast? Hmm.

Layla: What are we celebrating, almost getting in a fistfight with a cop?

Vincent: We can celebrate whatever you like.

Layla: What a gentleman. Has anyone ever told you that you're full of yourself?

Vincent: Well, you have to forgive me for feeling a little vindicated. You know, this man attacked me and my employee. Itís not my fault he did it in front of a room full of witnesses, you know? Whatís wrong? Is my good mood bothering you?

Layla: No, not really. I've never been a big fan of John or Natalie.

Vincent: Really? Why?

Layla: John used to date my sister.

Vincent: Evangeline?

Layla: They were really hot and heavy until Natalie broke them up. Vange was devastated.

Evangeline: Wow! You can be really detail-oriented when you want to be.

Cristian: Whoa, whoa, whoa, donít -- donít misunderstand. Just because I'm explicit doesnít mean that this is a casual thing. Itís just that I want you.

Evangeline: Itís a lot of pressure.

Cristian: No, no, no, no. No pressure at all. Just you and me -- the way I think we should be -- and I really want you.

Evangeline: I love this. I love being wanted this much, Cris. I swear, I'm not trying to play any games with you. I really want you, too. But would it kill you -- I mean, would it make you crazy if we just -- if we just wait a little bit longer? I mean, after my last relationship, I think I just --

Cristian: Whoa, whoa, no relationships. We're not going to talk about the past. Thatís done, finished, finito.

Evangeline: I know.

Cristian: Good.

Evangeline: And I donít want to repeat the past, so I think we could just maybe take this a little bit slower, you know? Bask a while in the yearning, wait.

Cristian: Well, it has been a while for me.

Evangeline: Cris --

Cristian: For you, I can wait a lifetime.

Evangeline: Donít worry. I'm not going to make it nearly that long.

Hugh: Bo, you donít need to do this yet. Why donít -- why donít we wait another day or two?

Bo: You know, I usually play by the rules. Anything else, it just doesnít seem right. And I donít make a move without thinking about this office and about that badge over there. And to have that questioned, even if itís based on a lie --

Hugh: I'll do whatever I can to help you get your life back.

Bo: Thank you, Hugh.

Hugh: We just need to prove that Trumanís fingerprints are all over this.

Bo: Yeah.

Blair: You know, Spencer, I donít know if this is such a good idea.

Spencer: What? I thought you said the kids were at Dorianís.

Blair: Well, they are, but I'm -- I'm exhausted.

Spencer: Look, I'll tell you what -- you can rest here, all right? Just come on -- I'll tell you what. I'll give you a mild sedative, all right?

Blair: You know, Spencer, thatís really not necessary.

Spencer: Listen, whoís the doctor here, huh? You havenít been sleeping at all, you said.

Blair: Yeah, I'm -- I kind of had insomnia lately.

Spencer: Right. Taking a sedative one night, and your life is certainly not going to hurt you.

Blair: Huh.

Spencer: I promise. Here. This is guaranteed to help you sleep for a solid eight hours. Understand? When you wake up in the morning, you will feel so much better.

Blair: Ok.

Spencer: Trust me.

Blair: Thanks. 

Cristian: Ok. So I guess if we're going to wait, we better sit out of armís reach.

[Phone rings]

Cristian: Donít answer it.

Evangeline: I have to, itís -- itís the police station.

Cristian: How do you know that?

Evangeline: Well, my coach made me give a distinctive ring to every important caller.

Cristian: Right. So what rings when I call?

Evangeline: Uh -- yeah, yeah, maybe I'll tell you someday, you know, if you're as good as you say you are.

Cristian: Ooh, the pressure.

Evangeline: Evangeline Williamson.

Bo: Evangeline, itís Bo. I need to meet with you tonight. Itís urgent.

Evangeline: Whatís going on?

Bo: Well, I'll explain when you get down here. Hughes arranged a car to pick you up.

Evangeline: Hugh? Why?

Bo: Well, itís kind of complicated to go into on the phone. So is that ok? I know itís really late, but can you come?

Evangeline: Yeah. Sure. You know, if itís important, of course.

Bo: All right, where are you?

Evangeline: 1534 Fairhaven Street.

Bo: All right. Thank you very much. I -- I really do appreciate it.

Evangeline: Are you all right, Bo?

Bo: No, I'm not. I'll see you later, ok?

Evangeline: I'll be there. I have to go. God, I'm so sorry.

Cristian: Why? What -- whatís going on?

Evangeline: Bo sounded really upset, he wouldnít tell me why. They're -- they're sending a car here to pick me up. God, I donít want to go, Cristian. I havenít felt this good in a really, really long time.

Cristian: Yeah, neither have I. Neither have I.

Evangeline: I want to feel this way again soon.

Cristian: You will. Come on, I'll take you downstairs.

Evangeline: Ok. Thanks.

John: What are you babbling about now?

Natalie: I'm trying to get you to admit how you feel.

John: Well, I'm -- I'm here with you, right?

Natalie: You are the most bullheaded, annoying man on this planet. You know that, right?

John: Yes, I do.

Natalie: You know what else?

John: Hmm?

Natalie: Vincent was right.

John: Oh, was he? Vincent was right?

Natalie: Mm-hmm.

John: What was he right about?

Natalie: He said that you were protecting your woman. Letís face it, John, you were.

John: I'm not going to do this.

Natalie: Ok, ok. All right, I get it. I know. I never should've gotten involved with that guy. But, John, he is the reason I was able to help you find your fatherís killer. I'm sorry. Can I just take that back now?

John: Just forget about it, all right? Look -- you know, your theory about why I lost it tonight -- you're not even close.

Natalie: Oh. Then why?

John: I thought I'd feel better.

Natalie: "Better"?

John: Most of my life I've tried to find my -- my fatherís murderer, and now we have a suspect. Heís been arraigned and thereís a -- thereís a good bet we'll get a conviction. I donít feel any better, you know? I donít feel redemption. I still have this emptiness inside and I -- I donít know why.

Spencer: Blair? You asleep? Donít you worry. I'm going to take care of everything for us. Come on in.

David: Whereís Blair? Did she finally wise up and go home?

Spencer: Sheís asleep. Donít worry, we can talk freely. She wonít be waking up.

David: Why, did you kill her?

Spencer: No -- but I am going to kill you if you donít change your mind about pleading guilty.

Adriana: Rex! I canít believe he attacked you like that.

Rex: Heís gone?

Adriana: He ran off after I tried to choke him. Are you ok?

Rex: I'm fine. I swallowed about a gallon of water, but other than that -- I'm going to go find him.

Adriana: No! Please donít -- donít go, ok? Heís probably long gone by now.

Rex: We've got to check the property, make sure no oneís hanging around, and then we're calling the cops!

Adriana: No, please donít call them! Please donít call the cops, I'm begging you.

Rex: Look, it is time to get the cops involved in this, ok? It has gotten way too big for us.

Adriana: I thought you said Bo already knew.

Rex: I told him a little. But this guy is raising the stakes. It could be a lot worse next time. I am not taking the chance.

Adriana: What would my mom say if she found out about this --

Rex: Hey, we canít handle it on our own anymore, it has gotten way too big.

Adriana: I know. You're right.

Rex: Right now, we need to worry about stopping this guy, ok, before things get any worse. I'll talk to Bo. I'll see if he can help us out without setting up a full-blown investigation, ok, or putting a cop on you.

Adriana: Thank you.

Rex: I am so sorry.

Adriana: You're sorry? My God, Rex, you could've been killed!

Rex: Come here.

Adriana: Why is this happening?

Rex: I donít know. But itís not going away.

Bo: Evangeline, thanks for coming.

Hugh: Here, here, come and sit.

Evangeline: No, no, no, got it, I got it. Thanks. So, Bo, whatís going on?

Bo: I need a defense attorney, and I want the best I can get, so the only one I really want is you.

Natalie: John, I think I know why you feel this way. All those years you thought of your fatherís killer, and you've built him up in your mind as some sick monster. But instead, you find out itís someone you know. Someone who was very young, stupid, scared, whoís been running from it ever since.

John: I've been thinking a lot about it. Man, thereís something about it that still doesnít add up, you know? Itís just a little too neat, too simple.

Natalie: What are you saying?

John: We still donít have the whole story, thatís -- what I'm saying is itís not over. I donít know why

David: Spencer, the magnitude of your threats is diluted by the sheer volume that I receive. You should try a little good old-fashioned diplomacy.

Spencer: You donít leave me much of a choice, David. If you cop a guilty plea with this thing, you're going to blow the lid off of everything that I've covered up for the last 25 years. Are you really willing to risk everything over a Crisis of conscience? Itís a cold case, David, as cold as they come. And I donít care what McBain or the D.A. think they have against you. They donít have enough evidence to convict. So why donít you just have a little faith, and you will be a free man.

David: Thatís probably what Todd Manning was thinking, too.

Spencer: Just stick to the not-guilty plea, David. Let your high-priced attorney do the dirty work and you'll get out of this.

David: Are you aware that McBain has a witness? Thatís how he arrested me in the first place.

Spencer: Well, perhaps he had enough to arrest you, but certainly not enough to convict. Look, the witness only heard a gunshot. No one actually saw you pull the trigger.

David: But I did. Thatís the thing, Spencer. I'm aware that I pulled that trigger. And ever since that night, I think thatís why everything in my life has gone wrong, but no more. I'm not going to live with this secret any longer.

Spencer: Thatís the wrong decision, David.

David: Well, you can relax. When I finally confess, I'm not going to mention your name. I'm going to leave you out of it. So, get this...

John: Ah. This isnít a blanket out of the trunk of a car, is it? Oh.

Natalie: You want a beer?

John: No, you know what? I think I'm -- I think I'm good right now. This is good.

Natalie: Is there anything I can do?

John: No, thanks.

John: Did you see that?

Natalie: Itís a shooting star.

John: Yeah. You know, I think you're supposed to make a wish when you see one of those.

Natalie: Ok. Done.

John: What'd you wish for?

Natalie: I canít tell you that, or else it wonít come true.

John: No, I think thatís -- I think thatís when you're blowing out your birthday candles or something like that. Donít think thereís any rules about shooting stars.

Natalie: You sure?

John: I'm positive, I think.

Natalie: Fine. I wished that it could be like this -- happy and quiet -- forever.

John: Yeah, sometimes quiet is good.

Natalie: Yeah. Sometimes. So how about you? Going to make a wish?

John: Hmm. Well, I think itís a little late for me.

Natalie: Oh, itís never too late.

 Cristian: Hello?

Vincent: Hey, itís your boss.

Cristian: Hey, whatís up, man?

Vincent: Whatís up is good news. I got you a new fight.

Cristian: Yeah?

Vincent: Mm-hmm. Hey, I had three promoters call me tonight trying to put their boy versus mine.

Cristian: Cool. I could always use the money.

Vincent: Yeah. But the last two, I turned down.

Cristian: What? Why?

Vincent: Because for the first one was for a title fight.

Cristian: You're serious?

Vincent: Yeah, I'm serious. Lien, this is your big chance, so make the most of it.

Cristian: You got me a fight with Rick Abbott?

Vincent: Ho-ho-ho! Yeah, thatís right, the one and only. Listen, the first thing in the morning, I need you to start training, and I mean hard. You hear me? Hard.

Cristian: Wow. Yeah, yeah, definitely. Yeah, you -- listen, Vincent, thank you. I really appreciate this, man.

Vincent: All right, man. See you at the gym.

Cristian: Yeah.

Vincent: Huh. Hey.

Layla: Keep it up. Itís good.

Vincent: Keep what up?

Layla: The way you're working so hard for Cris, promoting his career.

Vincent: Hey, you know something? This guy got some loyal fans.

Layla: Yes, I am a fan. I'm just worried about my sister. If she keeps losing clients, Cristian just might have to give her some financial help.

Bo: So in light of the circumstances, I decided to turn in my badge and my gun to Hugh.

Evangeline: Well, that was a little premature, donít you think? And whatís he still doing here?

Bo: Well, no -- Evangeline, it was my idea to step down. Hughís on my side. As a matter of fact, he thought it'd be a good idea if I delayed this for a few days.

Hugh: I've got a call in to Judge Warnerís office. I'm trying to get a court order to put a wiretap on Spencerís hotel room and office.

Evangeline: What about that guy from Kentucky? The -- the morgue attendant? The one that said you picked up the bodies? I mean, obviously, he was paid off.

Hugh: No, we did a background check. There were no suspicious deposits to any of his known bank accounts.

Evangeline: I have a friend from law school who practices in Louisville. I'll give her a call and see what she can dig up.

Bo: We, thank you.

Evangeline: I just wish there was something more I could do.

Bo: Well, there . You could take my case.

Evangeline: I canít. Bo, I'm not the right attorney for you.

[Phone rings]

Hugh: Itís Judge Warnerís office. Hugh Hughes. All right. Thanks for getting back to me. The judge denied my request for a court order.

Bo: I'm not surprised. You know, I never thought that figuring out what Spencer is really up to was going to be easy.

Spencer: David, look, I realize our relationship has suffered over the years because of this whole thing. I mean, look at the magnitude of the secret we had to keep between us. How it could it not? We were bound to feel the -- the strain of it all.

David: The strain of it all? Thatís a bit of an understatement, wouldnít you say?

Spencer: I wasnít referring to anything that has happened recently, David. I was talking about what did to protect you 25 years ago, something thatís been buried up until now. Unfortunately, now we have to deal with it. I mean, you were just a kid. Man, do you realize if I hadnít done what I did 25 years ago, you would have had no life? You wouldnít even have had an opportunity at a life. David, what do you think, I'm going to turn my back on you now, after everything I've done for you? What, you think now that I'm not on your side? You canít trust me?

David: Yes, I really think that I canít trust you, Spencer. You've been holding this over my head for years. And now you want me to turn around and just blindly trust you? Because you helped me Ė or think that you helped me -- 25 years ago not to mention the fact you've been blackmailing me ever since.

Spencer: Come on, David, use your head, man. I'm all you've got, you understand? You donít have any place else to turn. David, I -- listen, without me, you're probably going to spend the rest of your life in prison. With me, and if you do what I say, you'll be a free man.

Rex: Ok, no oneís here. Letís try to reach Bo one more time. Maybe heís out of his meeting.

Adriana: Please, Rex, I thought about it a little more, and -- couldnít we just keep this between us just a little while longer?

Rex: Itís too dangerous. We have to call the cops!

Adriana: Please, just for another day or so, ok? I'm begging you. If the cops are brought in, then my motherís going to find out, and my life will be ruined. Seriously. Not only will she hover over me day and night, I wonít be able to leave my room. She wonít let me see you anymore. It'll be worse than this. I'd rather be scared than totally trapped.

Rex: Ok. We'll hold off on calling the cops. But I am not letting you out of my sight from now on. Tonight, I'm going to have to sleep on the couch.

Adriana: Oh. Couch, huh? Rex, my mom has, like, 500 rooms.

Rex: The couch thing is a figure of speech.

Adriana: Sheís going to want to know why you're here.

Rex: Maybe we can time it out so that Dorian never knows I'm around.

Adriana: Ok. What? What does it mean, Rex? What does he want?

Layla: If you hadnít come along, Cris would still be fighting for $50 purses and getting his face smashed in. I mean, if you're going to get beat up, you might as well make decent money at it, right?

Vincent: Thatís my sentiment exactly.

Layla: I'll be back.

Vincent: All right. Then we'll have that toast?

Layla: Yeah.

Vincent: Donít be long.

Shaun: So whatís up with this title fight? Whatís really going on?

Vincent: Whatís really going on?

Shaun: Yeah.

Vincent: Well, you know I bet against my guy. And I came this close, man, I'm telling you, to win big. But then he got divine inspiration from his girlfriend. Huh.

Shaun: So what? You going to bet against him again?

Vincent: Well, you're right. But this time, this fight is for insurance. So even if his angel of mercy comes down and tries to perform one of those miracles, this manís going down. And I mean down with the crap beat out of him. Because you and I both know Vega canít take on Abbott.

Shaun: How can you be so sure?

Vincent: Have I ever had a problem getting what I want before? And I ainít about to start now.

Hugh: Ok, we are all in agreement that Spencer is the bad guy. We need to try something else. I can try again. But once a court order has been denied, thereís not a lot you can do.

Evangeline: Well, I'm glad you finally agree that Spencerís the bad guy, Hugh. Welcome to the party.

Hugh: Thank you.

Evangeline: But you know what? You're never going to get a court order. No. Look at Spencer. Heís a prominent surgeon, heís well respected. Heís -- no previous record. I mean, thereís no way you're ever going to show cause to have his place bugged.

Bo: All right, but what about you? Are you willing to help me, Evangeline?

Evangeline: Bo, I'll do whatever I can, but I canít be the lead attorney on your case. Look, I still havenít figured out how to get around on my own. I mean, this is the first time I've ever used this thing in my life. And I havenít mastered Braille yet, so I canít read. I'd be happy to give you advice. I'll even be second chair, but I canít risk your freedom to take on this case by myself. You need the best possible attorney. Someone -- someone that can do a really good job for you right now.

Bo: I know. And I think that that someone is you

Evangeline: Well, thank you. But you're wrong. Look, believe me, I know you're going to beat this thing. So, promise to give me a call and let me know who you find to represent you.

Bo: Ok. If worst comes to worst, though, and this does go to trial --

Evangeline: Weíre going to pray that it never goes to trial. Ok.

Hugh: Let me help you.

Evangeline: No, no. I got it.

Hugh: Can I get the door?

Evangeline: You can get the door.

Bo: Thank you for coming, Evangeline.

Hugh: Now what?

Bo: I'm not sure. One thing I do know is I'm going to use everything I've got, and I'm going to fight this.

David: As usual, you're right, Spencer. I have no choice, so I guess I'll trust you.

Spencer: Good. Listen, I didnít bail you out of jail because I had an obligation to do so. I didnít do what I did 25 years ago because I had to. I did it because I care about you.

David: Spencer, I shot and killed a man. I'm guilty. No amount of help is going to change that. You know where to find me.

Spencer: I always have.

David: You looking for me? This is what you wanted, isnít it? Eye for an eye?

John: I canít hear you.

David: Shades of Todd Manning?

John: I canít hear you. What are you trying to say to me?

David: You've got the wrong guy, lieutenant. Do you hear me now? You've got the wrong guy!

On the next "One Life to Live" --

Vincent: I need to see you right away.

Dorian: I just want you to tell me whatís going on.

Rex: I really need your help.

David: Spencerís reign of terror is almost over.

Blair: I'm with Spencer now.

Todd: Get out.
