Roxy: Hey, baby, whatís shaking?
Rex: A lot. Long story.
Roxy: Natalie around?
Rex: I think she went to that party at The Palace.
Roxy: Oh, shoot. You know, because I kind of -- I -- well, I think they kind of lost my invitation in the mail, and I was going to ask Natalie to sneak me in. I hear itís supposed to be a major blowout, open bar and all. So, what are you doing hanging out in the police station? I thought you were supposed to be off in the middle of nowhere-ville with Adriana.
Rex: Yeah. Sheís still out there somewhere. I got to find her.
Roxy: Hey. Hey, where is she? What happened? Well, you know, call her mama, because I'm sure Dorian knows where the hell she is.
Rex: I donít know about that. But one thingís for sure -- Dorian knows more about it than sheís saying.
Bruce: I want a bonus, or I tell Adriana all about how far mommy dearest is willing to go to keep her baby away from bad-boy Balsom.
Adriana: You -- you're the one that was working for Rex, the one thatís been stalking me?
Bruce: Yes, but -- I'm not working for your little boyfriend.
Bruce: You heard me. I always fly solo.
Adriana: I'm getting out of here.
Adriana: Who are you? What do you want from me?
Bruce: Patience, my lovely lady. You'll find out soon enough.
Claudia: Everything looks wonderful.
Renee: Oh --
Claudia: Thank you so much.
Renee: Oh, no, darling, it is I who should thank you. Your family made such a generous contribution to the new wing of the hospital. I canít tell you how much we appreciate it. I just want this evening to be perfect.
Claudia: I'm sure it will be.
Cristian: I'll go get us a drink. Martini, three olives. Very dirty.
Evangeline: You know it. Thanks. Looks like sheís not here yet.
Todd: "She" who?
Evangeline: Come on, Todd, you know you're looking for Blair. How much longer are you going to pretend you're not in love with her?
Natalie: Donít worry. Blair will be here soon. Just a little while longer and you'll have the key to Spencerís safe-deposit box.
John: If the gun that shot my father is there, we find a way to get a search warrant. As soon as Blair hands you off that key, sheís out of this. We canít risk tipping off Truman that sheís been setting him up.
Blair: Yes, thank you. Well, you have my cell number in case she wakes up, right? All right, well, I sure appreciate it.
Spencer: So howís Starr?
Blair: Sheís still sleeping.
Spencer: Good. Sleepís the best thing for her right now.
Blair: Yeah. Where are we going, Spencer? We could've walked right downstairs and been at the gala at the palace hotel.
Spencer: I just need to stop by the bank. I have to retrieve something from my safe-deposit box.
Clint: Dorian, itís Clint. Yeah, would you give me a call on my cell phone, let me know if thereís any news on Adriana?
Clint: Oh, hi.
Viki: Hi. Whatís up with Adriana?
Clint: Well, sheís been missing for the past couple of days.
Clint: Dorian thinks that she might be out somewhere nursing a broken heart, but sheís not sure.
Viki: Well, I hope thatís all it is. May I have a club soda, please? Thank you.
Clint: Despite what Dorian says, you know, sheís worried. Wish there was something I could do for her. What?
Viki: What? I didnít say anything.
Clint: You donít have to, I can read your mind. You donít like my relationship with Dorian.
Viki: Yeah, like itís a big secret how I feel about Dorian.
Clint: I'm not talking how you feel about Dorian. I'm talking about how you feel about me.
Roxy: So let me see if I've got this right. What are you saying pacifically? That Dorian did something to hurt Adriana?
Rex: I donít know about that. No. But she sure as hell meant to hurt me. Remember when she tried to make me look like a junkie, had me shot up with heroin?
Roxy: Oh, boy, do I ever. But you donít think Dorian really did that, do you?
Rex: She went a lot farther than that.
Roxy: How much further can you go?
Rex: Well, when Adriana was starting the modeling thing, she set her up with a stalker. Had her scared out of her wits.
Roxy: Wait a second. Dorian didnít cop to that, did she?
Rex: I figured it out. She somehow managed to put the stalkerís emails on my computer knowing that Adriana would find them, which of course she did. Then she sat back and waited for it all to blow up between us, which of course it did. And now Adriana is out there somewhere, God knows where. I mean, she could've been assaulted or abducted or God knows what. I mean, she could be in serious trouble.
Roxy: Hey, baby, like, calm down. So why arenít you out looking for her?
Rex: I've been driving around all day. She could be anywhere by now. Boís having someone take a look at my laptop to try to find out how those phony emails got on there.
Roxy: So you're just sitting here reading these papers, trying to pass the time?
Rex: These are hard copies of the emails. Itís just -- it feels to me like they're from a guy. I donít think Dorian wrote them.
Roxy: Whoís the guy?
Rex: Thatís what I got to find out.
Bruce: I have errands to run. You, young lady, need to sit tight.
Adriana: You're leaving me here?
Bruce: You're going to be safe. And donít get all dramatic and start screaming. The place is soundproof. And try not to worry so much. You'll be going home soon if things go according to plan.
Adriana: What are you talking about? What plan?
Bruce: Sorry I have to do this. If you werenít so feisty -- I know what you did to your boyfriend when you thought he crossed you. I'm not going to give you a chance to clock me over the head. There you go.
Adriana: Help! Can somebody hear me? Please, I need help! Oh. Where am I?
Blair: You know what? We've got to go back to The Palace right now.
Spencer: Why? Whatís wrong?
Blair: I am getting a blinding headache, and I tell you, if I donít take an aspirin right now, itís going to turn into a migraine, and then I know I'm not going to be able to go to the party.
Spencer: Itís all right. Itís no problem. Listen, I've got some in my medical bag in the trunk. I'll pull over, ok?
Spencer: All right.
Todd: I'm not in love with Blair anymore. Done. Her kiss didnít mean anything to me.
Todd: Yeah, I kissed her the other day, at the hospital, for Starrís sake. Starr woke up and sheís confused about our relationship. She thinks Blair and I are still together. So we pretended for her sake, didnít want to upset her.
Todd: Whatís that look for? Donít give me that. I'm not in love with her. I'm not. Besides, it doesnít matter how I feel. Sheís in love with Spencer now.
Evangeline: Yeah, maybe.
Todd: No, no "maybe." Sheís practically living with him.
Evangeline: I know. But, Todd, when I talked to her -- thank you -- she seemed more interested in knowing what your relationship is with me. If you ask me, sheís jealous.
Blair: Um, Spencer, would you mind leaving the keys, because I want to -- maybe the music will help my head.
Spencer: Yeah, sure.
Blair: Thanks. Come on.
Cristian: El martini para la princesa.
Evangeline: Oh, thank you. Itís perfect.
Evangeline: Todd -- yeah. Thanks for being such a good sport about tonight.
Cristian: Hey, I donít really care who he came here with, because I know I'm taking you home with me.
Layla: Hey, sis.
Evangeline: Hey. You look beautiful.
Layla: Thank you. So do you.
Vincent: Yes, you do.
Evangeline: Glad you two could make it.
Vincent: Hmm, thank you. I hope thatís straight O.J. that you're drinking. I donít want you drinking while you're training. You've got a big title fight coming up.
Cristian: Oh, itís O.J. No alcohol. And I plan to be in bed early tonight. As early as possible, I hope.
Paige: So who'd you bribe to get in here?
David: I didnít bribe anybody. Whatís the point of free food and drink if you have to pay someone to get in?
Paige: Oh, and you never pass up an opportunity for free anything, right?
David: Women find thriftiness an attractive quality.
Paige: Do they?
David: What are you doing here? If I lost my medical license, I'd feel a little awkward about coming to a hospital gala.
Paige: I still have friends there. I just interviewed for a research job there.
David: Oh, you did? Good for you. You know, thereís nothing embarrassing about being demoted.
Paige: It is what it is. I canít hide from what I did. Besides, I want Spencer to see me. I want him to know that even though he destroyed my job, he didnít destroy my life.
David: Bully for you. I'm serious. Even your victoryís a little pathetic, donít you think? Spencerís still got everything he wanted.
Paige: Thatís a temporary situation.
David: You know we're still going to have to listen to some sort of "hooray for me, I'm king of the world" speech tonight. You got any tomatoes in that purse?
Paige: I get the feeling people are going to be throwing a lot worse things than tomatoes at him very soon.
Renee: Spencer is not in his room.
Renee: You're welcome. I'm glad I can help. Now I'd better see whatís going on in the kitchen.
John: Of course.
Natalie: All right, so Blair and Spencer must be on their way down. Should be here any minute.
Spencer: There you go. Take this.
Blair: Thank you. Mmm.
Spencer: You sure thatís all thatís wrong with you, Blair, is just a headache?
Blair: Mm-hmm. Yeah, why are you asking?
Spencer: I donít know. You just really seem to be on edge this evening, all evening.
Blair: I told you. Probably would be with Starr in the hospital. I should've never agreed to do this. I mean, go to the gala.
Spencer: But you have to be there. I have something very special planned for you.
Viki: What does that mean -- how I feel about you?
Clint: I just meant that you feel the same way about me that I feel about you. When it comes to our children, we're partners -- partners who rely on each other in the bad times and the good. I mean, no matter whatís going on, we work well together.
Viki: Yes. Yes, in matters pertaining to our children, we work well together.
Clint: As far as Dorian goes -- ahem -- I know that she has never been a friend to our kids.
Clint: But I want you to know, whatever may happen between Dorian and me, my priority will always be our children.
Viki: They're adults. They can handle themselves.
Clint: That doesnít mean they still donít need us. What, did I say something funny?
Viki: No. I thought you were going to say something else.
Clint: What -- like what?
Viki: That I donít want you to be with Dorian because I want you for myself.
Clint: Thatís absurd!
Viki: Yes, thatís absurd.
Rex: Natalieís probably at the party by now. You'd better get going or you're going to miss the hors d'oeuvres.
Roxy: Oh, I donít think I'm going to be able to scare up a ticket. Might as well stay here and do what I can for you, baby.
Rex: Thereís nothing you can do. I'm just trying to get a read on whoever wrote this, maybe find a clue as to who he is. The more he wrote, the darker they got, and the more and more he talked about butterflies.
Roxy: Thatís creepy.
Rex: "You're elusive, but I'll catch you. You canít fly away from me, my butterfly." "You can spread your wings, but you wonít get far, my rare painted lady." See, he kept calling her that -- "painted lady." Weird thing is, that is so not Adriana.
Roxy: Whoís Vanessa?
Roxy: "You will be mine, Vanessa Atlanta." Is he stalking another chick named Vanessa?
Rex: Let me see that.
Roxy: Whoa, what does it mean?
Rex: Means we just got a clue.
Viki: Clint, I have never, ever questioned your priorities as a father.
Clint: Even with Dorian in the picture?
Viki: Even with Dorian in the picture. I know you. I know if the children needed you, you would be there. But it was very nice of you to say it.
Clint: Yeah. I donít ever want you to feel that you're alone. Viki, I worry about you sometimes.
Clint: Because you give so much of yourself to the family. Now, I know itís none of my business, but sometimes I think it would be a good idea for you to get out and enjoy yourself on occasion. You know, get away from the family and all the problems.
Viki: You are absolutely right -- none of your business.
Clint: I'm sorry. I donít mean to overstep, but this past year has been difficult --
Clint: For all of us. I think that you deserve some happiness of your own. Ben would want that for you. Do you want to go inside?
Viki: Oh, no, no, I'm going to stay and have a cheery conversation with Todd.
Clint: See you later.
Todd: Hey. Hey. Give me a shot of your house whiskey and a draft beer.
Viki: Howís Starr?
Todd: Sheís sleeping.
Viki: Oh, thatís good.
Viki: I'm so glad sheís going to be all right.
Todd: Yeah, me, too.
Viki: So, why are you not inside, huh?
Todd: Drinks are stronger here.
Viki: Oh, I get it. Blair must be there with Spencer.
Todd: Viki, I'm not going to forgive her after what she did to me.
Viki: You are still so angry, so vengeful. Dark.
Todd: Yeah, well, being framed for murder and put to death made me a little depressed.
Viki: Donít you see that you've been given an unbelievable gift? You got your life back, but you're not living it. You havenít found any peace.
Todd: Ah, peace is overrated.
Viki: Yeah, how would you know?
Todd: Thank you. Oh, what would you like me to do, Viki? Celebrate life while Spencer Truman is on top of the world?
Viki: Look, if you're right about him, the law is going to deal with Spencer Truman.
Todd: Oh, and thatís going to get me peace, huh?
Viki: No. You're not going to find any peace until you find a way to forgive Blair.
Spencer: Howís your head?
Blair: Oh, itís better, thanks.
Spencer: Yeah? Because you've been drifting away from me off and on all evening, you know? Are you sure thereís not something else wrong?
Blair: No, it -- this is a very important night for you, and I feel like, well, that I've ruined it.
Spencer: No, no, no. No, I know you're not feeling your best. I do. But this is going to be a very special night for both of us. All right. I wonít be long in the bank.
Spencer: All right. Sit tight.
Claudia: I didnít expect you to come. Huh.
Claudia: Not unless Jessica/Tess was here.
Nash: Well, I thought it would be a good place to network. I'm looking into opportunities for a new business venture here in Llanview now that I know I'm staying. Oh, would you excuse me? I see someone important I got to go talk to.
Ted: This must be Cristian Vega.
Vincent: Yeah, to the bone.
Ted: Pleasure to meet you. I've been following your fights ever since you first put on the gloves.
Cristian: And you are?
Vincent: This is Ted. He works for me.
Evangeline: In what capacity?
Ted: I like to think of myself as Vincentís right-hand man.
Vincent: Yeah. But you're not on the clock right now, so why donít you go and enjoy yourself. Relax, have a drink.
Ted: Thanks. I think I will.
Cristian: Can I talk to you for a minute? Itís about the fight.
Vincent: Of course.
Cristian: I'll be back.
Layla: You and Cristian can barely keep your hands off each other. Should I find somewhere else to spend the night?
Evangeline: Like where? Vincentís place?
Layla: All right, would you stop with the overprotective thing? Itís getting really old.
Evangeline: Layla, I just donít want you to make another mistake. I was there the last time you got your heart broken, and I gained, like, five pounds worrying about you.
Layla: I'm not going to make a mistake. So far I really like what I see.
Natalie: Donít worry, they'll be here.
John: Did I tell you, you look real pretty tonight?
Natalie: Yeah. Just now you did.
John: Itís Blair. Whatís going on? Did you get the key?
Blair: Yeah, I got the key, but I had to put it back suddenly because he wanted to stop and get something out of his safe-deposit box.
John: Damn it, the gun. You think heís on to you?
Man: Take all the time you need.
Spencer: Thank you. Just be a minute. And there it is.
Adriana: How could I have been so stupid? Rex would never do something so awful. I'm so sorry, Rex.
Rex: Like it?
Adriana: I love it. Too bad the waterís going to wash it away, though.
Adriana: I'm so sorry I doubted you, Rex. Please come find me. I love you so much.
Rex: I've been doing a bunch of research on butterflies. The painted lady is a genus or subgroup or something. There, thatís it. "The painted lady is also known as Vanessa Cardui," not Vanessa Atlanta. Anyone who is into butterflies would know that.
Roxy: Yeah? So?
Rex: So why didnít the stalker? And he kept calling Adriana his "rare" painted lady, but the painted lady is one of the most common butterflies in the world.
Roxy: So what are you getting at?
Rex: Well, I've also researched stalkers. Thereís a type called the collector. Heís meticulous about whatever it is that he collects. Knows everything there is to know about it. And that was this guyís profile, so I studied his M.O., and so is the so-called stalkerís. But this guy isnít an expert on butterflies at all. He didnít do his homework. Thereís something else going on here.
Dorian: I thought I told you not to call me again. You can go ahead and tell my daughter about our agreement, ok, because Adriana is going to take her motherís word over yours.
Bruce: Well, maybe so, but have you seen her lately? Because I have.
Dorian: Where is my daughter?
Bruce: Oh, I see I have finally got your attention.
David: You really think Spencerís time is up?
Paige: Yes, I do.
David: I wish I was that hopeful. Seems like heís getting away with everything heís done.
Paige: He didnít get away with framing Bo. I mean, they couldnít pin it on him, but he failed.
David: Hmm. Heís still walking around. In my book -- means he got away with it.
Paige: Yeah, but Spencerís a perfectionist. And for the first time ever, he didnít get what he wanted. Thatís got to be killing him.
Spencer: Mr. Sharp?
Mr. Sharp: Yes?
Spencer: Thank you very much. I have everything I need.
John: Blair? Can you hear me? Are you there?
Blair: I donít think Spencer knows anything. I was very careful. Oh, heís -- heís back. I'll take to you later.
Spencer: Who are you calling?
Blair: Oh, I was just checking in on Jack. Heís watching a movie, heís happy as a clam.
Spencer: Well, I got what I came for. Now our evening can begin.
Natalie: You think that Spencer could've found out that you're looking for the gun and took it out of the safe-deposit box?
John: I donít know. I'm going to have a unit follow him from the bank. If he did get the gun and he tries to ditch it, my guy will be on his tail. Blair is so determined to prove that Spencer set Todd up, sheís gotten herself in way over her head.
Todd: I'm sure you could forgive Blair. You're a saint. I'm no such thing.
Viki: Look, I know perfectly well what she did. She gave up on you, she believed you were guilty of murder, and, yes, those things are terrible, but they are not inexplicable. You have to know the reasons why she did it.
Todd: No, I donít.
Viki: Are you kidding? You lied. Todd, you lied to her. For months, you never told her Margaret was pregnant. She was the one person you were supposed to be honest with, and you betrayed her. So she did the same to you.
Todd: She doesnít seem to be slowing down, either, does she?
Viki: Look, I'm not suggesting you completely, entirely forget the past and rush back at each other, but you have to find a way to be together with her peacefully, for the children. Have you ever wondered why Starr was at the quarry in the middle of the night? Why she did something so reckless?
Todd: Are you saying that was my fault?
Viki: Not entirely. It was the tension between you and Blair. That is not good for children. Itís not good for you.
Todd: I'm fine.
Viki: No, you are not fine. You come back from the dead, and you're just angry and vengeful. You of all people should value what you have. Do you remember that I pushed Ben out the window --
Todd: You --
Viki: And I nearly killed him.
Todd: You didnít push Ben out the window. It wasnít you. It was Niki.
Viki: Right. So I wasnít myself, right? Blair was not herself when you were in prison. Blair was frightened. She was alone. She felt hurt and betrayed by you. And she was looking for a way to live her life by herself. You know, when I realized what I had done to Ben, I thought it was completely unforgivable, and it was. But he forgave me. And I will never, ever be able to forget how grateful I am for that gift because it allowed me to live again. My God, you came back from the dead, and what have you done since then? Nothing. Honey, you have to forgive Blair. Itís the only way you will start to live again.
Todd: You look beautiful, by the way.
Viki: Thank you.
David: Pretty weird about Dorian and Clint, huh? I never figured she was into cowboys.
Viki: Extremely weird.
David: You know what this means, donít you? You and I should give it a go. Your expression says "no," but your eyes -- say "no," too.
David: Can I buy you a free drink?
Viki: Oh. After you.
David: One for me and one for me.
Dorian: Where is Adriana?
Bruce: Oh, sheís safe for now. And she'll stay that way as long as you do what I want.
Dorian: What? What do you mean?
Bruce: You werenít enthusiastic enough about my request for a bonus, so now I'm talking about ransom.
Dorian: You -- you've kidnapped her?
Bruce: Oh, tell the lady what sheís won.
Dorian: Just tell me what you want.
Bruce: What do all kidnappers want? Money. And a bundle of it. I'll get back in touch with the details. In the meantime, donít call the cops, or you'll never see your daughter again.
Claudia: Fancy meeting you here.
Nash: Why arenít you inside? It is your party.
Claudia: I didnít donate money just to have a party. I want my money to do some good for people.
Claudia: Oh, and did you find any new investors for your business?
Nash: No, not yet, but I'm just putting out feelers. I still got to figure out exactly what kind of a business I want to get into. I mean, I know the wine business, but itís -- huh -- itís very loaded for me. The vineyard in Napa was my dream with Tess.
Claudia: Maybe itís time for a new dream.
Nash: Yeah. Well, I've been kicking around a few ideas, but I still got to work out the financing.
Claudia: I could help you.
Nash: The last time you invested in one of my businesses, I ended up with a restraining order against me, and your father ended up dead. Now, why would you want to do that again, and why would I want to let you?
Layla: I hope you change your mind about Vincent. I really like him, Vange.
Evangeline: In that case, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. But if he hurts you, he has to deal with me.
Layla: Thank you.
Cristian: You're welcome.
Layla: Well, I've got to get back to my date, so you two have fun.
Evangeline: You, too. But not too much fun.
Layla: Oh. Not possible. Believe me.
Cristian: So, when do I get to take you home?
Evangeline: Somebody has a one-track mind.
Cristian: The only thing on my mind right now is how much I love you.
Paige: We have been allowing ourselves to be manipulated by Spencer for years.
David: Wasnít a whole lot we could do about it.
Paige: Maybe, but -- I donít know. I've spent too much of my life believing in the power of the bad guys. I'm sticking with the good guys from now on.
John: I understand. My man followed Blair and Truman from the bank. If he did pick up the gun, he hasnít tried to get rid of it yet.
Natalie: There they are.
Renee: Oh. Thank God. I've been so worried.
Spencer: Sorry about that. We had to make a stop first. I had to take care of something very important.
Renee: Well, you're just in time because we're ready to start the dedication if you are.
Spencer: All right. Lead the way.
Blair: Good luck.
John: I got to talk to Blair. Maybe she knows what Truman took from the safety-deposit box.
Todd: Hey, I need to talk to you right away.
Renee: May I have your attention, please? Thank you all for coming this evening to celebrate this dedication of the new Reston wing of the hospital. And now please join me in giving a warm welcome to Dr. Spencer Truman.
Todd: Did you hear what I said? I need to talk to you right now.
Bruce: Well, it seems like our relationship will be brief but profitable.
Adriana: You're not going to get away with this, you know. People will start wondering where I am. Rex will come looking for me.
Bruce: Oh, after the blowup you two had, I donít think so. You told him you hated him, remember? Heís probably already forgotten about you.
Adriana: No. Rex knows in his heart that I still love him, and he'll come looking for me. I know he will.
Roxy: Baby, I got to find myself a drink and a good party, and I donít want to waste this damn fine outfit.
Rex: You were a big help, mom. Thanks.
Roxy: Oh. Come on. You know, I didnít really do anything. I think Adrianaís going to be ok. I have a sick sense about all that stuff.
Rex: I'll find her. But I think itís time to stop chasing butterflies and start going after the queen bee. I need to know everything Dorian knows.
Dorian: Commissioner Buchanan, please. Yes, of course I'll hold. Oh.
Bruceís voice: I'll get back in touch with the details. In the meantime, donít call the cops or you'll never see your daughter again.
Dorian: Oh, my God. What have I done?
Nash: Thank you.
Claudia: Um -- we're not together. You wouldnít be getting my money by leading me on.
Claudia: Hmm. It would be strictly business. We'd be partners.
Nash: Well, thanks, but no thanks. I'd always feel that there were strings attached.
Claudia: You know, um sometimes I do just give from the heart. I mean, thatís what -- thatís what this whole night is about, a gift from my family to the hospital. I really do try to be a good person, Nash.
Todd: Hey. Please come with me to the bar. We need to talk.
John: What does Manning want?
Natalie: Who knows?
Spencer: This is a very important evening for the hospital, but it also happens to be a very important evening for me as well, and if you could all bear with me for just a moment, I'd like to address something before we begin the dedication, something of a more personal nature, something thatís very, very important to me.
Todd: Hey, can we go, please?
Blair: What is it, Todd?
Spencer: Everything in my life has led to this moment. And --
Todd: Hey, I donít want to do this here. Come on.
Spencer: Blair Cramer, will you marry me?
On the next "One Life to Live" --
Nash: Nothing will ever make me give up on Tess.
Starr: If my parents are worried enough about me, maybe they'll realize how much in love they still are.
Natalie: What do you think sheís going to do?
Spencer: Itís very simple. You just say yes.
