Starr: "Once upon a time, there was a very stubborn king. The king had thrown the queen into the castle dungeon to await execution. The stubborn king had already lined up a new bride, a beautiful princess, daughter of the rich and powerful king of a neighboring kingdom who was escorted to the castle by her bodyguard, a brave and valiant knight."
Jack: Have we read this before? Because it reminds me of something.
Starr: I was just thinking the same thing.
John: [John sighs] Hey.
John: I'm beat. I'm going to crash, ok?
Natalie: All right. I'm going to go in the living room and read for a while.
John: All right. No crunking.
John: Good night. Natalie's voice: "For thousands of years, the treasures of a lost civilization laid buried beneath the sands."
Jessica: Ah. "It was a dark and gloomy night. The Lord and lady of the man were spending a quiet evening reading by the fire when suddenly, there was an urgent knocking at the manor door." [Knocking on door]
Jack: Where are the dragons? Aren't there dragons in this book?
Starr: Well, I hope so, but we're never going to find out unless you shut up. Anyway -- "the stubborn king can't marry the beautiful princess."
Starr: "Until the queen's head is separated from her neck."
Jack: Why can't they just get a divorce?
Dorian: Oh. Oh, that son of a -- king. But I swear to you, milady, I will do whatever it takes to save your life. That horrible monarch will not cut off your beautiful head.
Blair: But I betrayed him. I committed adultery with a scoundrel.
Dorian: That's what royal people do. The point is you've suffered enough and -- oh -- as heaven is my witness, I will do whatever it takes to save your life!
Blair: Thank you.
Dorian: Oh, me! Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh! Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Todd: [English accent] Well, you're even more beautiful than your father said you were.
Evangeline: Thank you.
Todd: Rise. Hmm.
Todd: Ah. Not bad. Well, make yourselves at home. I have business to attend to.
Cristian: Is he a good kisser?
Evangeline: No. I hate him. I hate my father. Why do I have to be a princess?
Cristian: This is torture -- to be so close and not to be able to touch you.
Evangeline: No, stop. We promised not to talk about things that can never be.
Cristian: Can you feel my heart? It's breaking, princess. I can't live without you, I won't.
Evangeline: We don't have a choice.
Cristian: Well, you don't have to go through with this. I know I am poor and not worthy. And I have nothing but, well, musculos and courage and my love for you.
Evangeline: That's not nothing.
Cristian: This is true. Love does not care about rank or royalty.
Evangeline: Unfortunately, lots of people do, people with armies, people like my father.
Cristian: Who cares? I love you, deeply and completely, from the bottom of my soul, and I know you love me.
Blair: Oh, my love!
Todd: Hmm. Your replacement is here.
Blair: My what?
Todd: Yes, I'm getting married tomorrow -- beautiful woman. And she'll be loyal and faithful, and she'd never think of betraying her king with a -- oh, well, make your peace with your head. Tomorrow, it comes off.
Blair: I'm not afraid to die.
Todd: Hmm. You're not afraid it's going to hurt even a little bit?
Blair: What is an ax compared to a broken heart?
Blair: At least with my dying, the hurting ends.
Dorian: Sir Cole, you're back.
Cole: Where's the king?
Dorian: Trust me -- you don't want to know. And you, princess -- what's your name?
Evangeline: [English accent] Evangeline.
Dorian: Ha. Whatever. Now, then, let me take you to your chambers, and you, young man -- I'll show you to the servants' quarters. [Dorian chuckles]
Starr: Sir Cole, you're back! Huh. Oh! This is pretty good, right?
Jack: If you like kissing, which I don't.
Starr: Well, tough. I want to see how it ends. "The sun came up the next morning to the sound of trumpets. The queen had been up all night, her last night on earth if the king got his way."
Cole: There's plenty more on the camels.
Starr: Father, may I speak to you?
Todd: Hmm, when I'm finished.
Starr: No -- now. You cannot chop off mom's head.
Todd: Not in front of the help, Starr. Besides, it's all set.
Starr: Well, unset it, dad! You're the thing!
Todd: I have no choice.
Starr: Yes, you do. You can forgive her.
Todd: No. Case is closed.
Starr: No, no, no. I don't want to ruin your --
Todd: No, you, boy, unhand my daughter.
Todd: He's a commoner, Starr.
Starr: I don't care! I love him!
Cole: And I love her. I've asked princess Starr to be my wife.
Starr: And I said yes -- in a couple of years.
Todd: Starr, you've been engaged to prince -- uh -- well, whatever his name is -- since before you were born. Besides, your marriage makes an important -- an important --
Starr: Fie on alliances!
Todd: What did you say?
Todd: Don't use that sort of language with me.
Starr: Well, don't make me do it, daddy. Don't force me to marry somebody that I never even met!
Todd: Why not? I am. Guards.
Todd: Take the traitor down to the dungeon.
Guard: You mean, sir Cole?
Todd: Ugh. Must I do everything myself? Give me that.
Guard: March, my --
Starr: Oh. Oh, I hate being a princess!
Evangeline: So do I.
Starr: Who are you?
Evangeline: Princess Evangeline.
Starr: The new wife?
Evangeline: No offense, but I do not love your father. I love sir Cristian.
Starr: And I love Sir Cole, but knights and princesses --
Evangeline: I know -- they're not allowed to touch us. Hmm.
Starr: It's so old-fashioned.
Evangeline: It's medieval.
Starr: My father used to be a great man, the best -- controversial, but then my mother cheated on him.
Evangeline: No way.
Starr: Yes. She messed up bigtime, but she didn't mean it. My father has been a cruel and heartless bastard ever since.
Cristian: [English accent] You can't marry him.
Starr: Is that --
Cristian: I won't leave you alone in the hands of a -- a -- Starr and
Evangeline: A cruel, heartless bastard!
Cristian: Yes, something like that.
Dorian: Not to worry! Old king cruel won't be a problem much longer. Oh. [Dorian chuckles]
Guard: All right.
Cole: Oh, nice. Real nice.
Blair: Sir Cole? I thought you were on a crusade. What are you doing here?
Cole: I'm in love with your daughter.
Cole: I cannot live without her.
Blair: Does she love you?
Cole: More than anything, but the king won't let us be together. He's breaking our hearts.
Blair: That's what he does. Well, I wish that I could help you, but in 15 minutes, I'll be minus a head.
Dorian: No, you won't. I've poisoned the king's wine. One sip and he's a goner.
Cole: And then Starr will be queen!
Dorian: First things first, young man. We kill the king, and then all our lives will be better.
Blair: No! No, the king can't die. You got to save him.
Cole: Are you tripping? If the king survives, you are headless.
Blair: I don't care. Save him -- for the love of Starr.
Cole: Ok, ok, but you're going to have to help me.
Cole: Guards! Guards, the queen is sick.
Blair: Oh, oh!
Cole: Oh, the king is trouble, boy. The king's going to be mad if she dies before he can kill her. Oh.
Guard: Milady, are you ok?
Todd: Tell the cook to go easy on the salt next time.
Todd: Oh, would you please stop crying?
Starr: Daddy, please don't go through with this!
Todd: 'Tis too late. I've made up my mind. Hmm.
Evangeline: What is that? I'm sorry. I cannot marry you. I love Sir Cristian.
Todd: Oh, you're joking.
Evangeline: I love him.
Todd: Well, get over it. Guards?
Todd: Take him away.
Evangeline: Unhand him. Please, please! No!
Todd: To the dungeon with him!
Evangeline: Please! Unhand him! Unhand him! Unhand him!
Dorian: No, my liege.
Evangeline: No --
Dorian: Shh. I think you should propose a toast -- to yourself.
Dorian: Because you are the most powerful king in all the world and everyone must obey you.
Todd: Oh, yes. That's true, isn't it? It's a good idea.
Cole: Oh, no, don't drink that!
Dorian: What? This is getting ridiculous!
Todd: What is he doing out of his dungeon?
Cole: The queen has sent you a message.
Todd: Ah. I don't want to hear it.
Cole: That wine is poison.
Todd: Is this true?
Dorian: Why, of course not, my liege.
Todd: Then you drink it.
Dorian: Oh, no. I'm a beer girl myself.
Todd: Why did you do it?
Dorian: Because you're a tyrant, and once you're dead, then everyone can be happy.
Blair: Everyone but me.
Todd: You don't want me dead?
Blair: How could you ask such a thing, Todd?
Todd: Do you mean to say that you're willing to save my life? Even after I had given you the death penalty?
Todd: You are forgiven.
Todd: The beheading is officially canceled. Guards, you may step down. And I'd like to officially announce the engagement of my daughter Starr to sir --
Todd: Sir Cole.
Todd: And, you -- terribly sorry I can't marry you tonight. I'm involved with someone else, but if he'd like a job, I'll see what I can do.
Todd: Now, then, everybody kiss.
Starr: "And they lived happily ever after."
Jack: Oh, wow. That was the best story I've ever heard -- not.
Starr: Well, I liked it. If only real life worked out that way.
Natalie: We made it! We made it to the pharaoh's tomb! [Natalie laughs]
Rex: I'll say.
Roxy: Holy royal Ramses. Look at all the stash in this joint.
Natalie: No, no, no. Knock -- knock it off, Roxy. You know the rules.
Roxy: Ah, that's just an old wives' tale.
Natalie: Don't disturb the treasure.
Roxy: What does it say, Rexy?
Rex: "The treasure's not to be disturbed."
Roxy: Why didn't you say so?
Natalie: We're scientists, not grave robbers.
Rex: We sold our Edsel to get here. How are we supposed to get home, Natalie?
Natalie: We'll figure it out.
Rex: Come on -- finders, keepers.
Natalie: Who is the leader of this expedition? Rex and
Roxy: You are.
Natalie: That's right, so I get to make the rules. So anything we take from here goes straight to a museum for posterity.
Rex: Yeah, that's what I meant.
Roxy: Oh, posterior, my ass. I don't think there are any rules about trying stuff on. Wow! This is the bargain basement! Cha-ching, cha-ching.
Rex: "Buried here is king --" something or other -- "the most powerful pharaoh in history."
Rex: He's buried in this room. In the other sarcophagus is the woman he loved.
Roxy: Wow, she's a real looker.
Rex: "She was murdered" by this man.
Natalie: And it broke the pharaoh's heart.
Rex: That's right. "He died of a broken heart soon after. He left instructions for his heart to be removed and placed in his wife's sarcophagus."
Roxy: That is so radical.
Natalie: No, that's true love, Roxy.
Roxy: No, maybe the guy was just cuckoo. Maybe nobody told him you can't take it with you.
Rex: "The legend has it that if the heart is returned to the pharaoh, he will come back to life and be reunited with his true love." That's deep.
Roxy: Ooh -- I'll say.
Natalie: You think --
Rex: I don't know.
Roxy: It's a trap? We fall into a pit with poisonous pet snakes?
Natalie: Well, there's only one way to find out.
Roxy: Oh, I got a bad feeling about this, kids.
Natalie: Ah! Oh! [Screaming] Ooh!
John: What is it? You ok?
Natalie: Um -- yeah. Sorry. I -- my book, it just scared me.
John: Your -- your book? It must -- must have been good.
Natalie: Yeah, I guess so. I'm ok, I'm ok. Go back to bed.
John: Yeah? You sure?
John: All right.
Natalie: Good night. [ Whispering ] Morning, Kim. Morning, Bob. [Egyptian music plays] This is it. This must be the pharaoh's heart.
Rex: You sure you don't want to use gloves for that?
Natalie: Give me some light, will you?
Roxy: Like I told you, old wives' tale.
Rex: Uh -- Nat? [Rumbling]
Roxy: Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, if I should die before --
Roxy: Sorry, wrong god.
John: Which one of you woke me up?
Natalie: It was me. I gave you your heart back.
John: My wife.
Rex: No. Your wife's here in this moldy cocoon.
John: Then you look exactly like her.
Natalie: I -- I don't -- I don't know what to say. I'm -- I'm Natalie Balsom. I'm -- I'm -- um --
Rex: An archeologist.
John: When you died, you took my heart with you.
Natalie: Sorry, but I think you have me confused with someone else.
John: Are you saying you don't love me?
Natalie: No, I'm -- I'm not saying that at all.
Rex: I've heard of meeting cute, but this is ridiculous.
John: Did you just call me cute?
Rex: No, sir.
Roxy: Hey, Rexy, help me with the stash.
John: Let's get out of here.
Natalie: You know, things are a little different out there. Like -- well, you know --
John: There's only one thing that can separate us now.
Natalie: What's that?
John: Not one piece of treasure may leave this tomb. If even one tiny little piece is removed, we're all doomed.
Natalie: Nothing. I -- I promise.
Rex: Me, too.
Roxy: Me, three.
John: Then we'll all be happy.
Rex: Let's go, Roxy.
Roxy: Had it all. Ok.
Natalie: It's just a stupid book. In my opinion, happiness is having... the people you love around you.
Jessica: "The stable boy had come to the house to bring sad news."
Nash: I'm here about your horse, Heathcliff. He's dying.
Nash: Yes. I'm sorry, I've tried like hell to save him -- pardon my language, sir.
Jessica: I have to see him. I have to.
Antonio: There is nothing you can do, sweetheart. You know how animals get when they're sick. He could lash out.
Nash: No, sir, not Heathcliff. Heathcliff has known lady Jessica since the moment he was born.
Jessica: We were there that day. The day he was born, remember?
Antonio: As if it were yesterday.
Nash: I should see to him.
Jessica: Maybe Nash can save him.
Antonio: You need to say goodbye. I will get your cloak.
Jessica: Are we too late?
Nash: I think he's waiting for you.
Antonio: She will be heartbroken.
Antonio: I will buy her a new one tomorrow.
Nash: That won't be the same.
Antonio: I know. But she needs something to love and care for. I would move heaven and earth for my wife. What?
Nash: It's not my place to say.
Antonio: That's ridiculous. Have I not always treated you as a friend more than a servant?
Nash: Yes. I had no family, and you took me in and treated me like a brother. And I will always be grateful to you for that.
Antonio: You don't have to live here in the stable, you know. How many times have I offered you a room in the main house?
Nash: I prefer to sleep here.
Talia: Sire, you're needed in the main house. They said it was a matter of some importance.
Antonio: I have to go.
Nash: I'll see to it that lady Jessica gets home safe.
Antonio: Take good care of her.
Nash: I almost told him just now.
Jessica: Told him what?
Nash: That we are deeply in love.
Jessica: I -- I don't love you.
Nash: And I don't love you.
Jessica: Finally. Jessica's voice: "The two lovers were locked in a clandestine embrace." We can never tell Antonio the truth.
Nash: Well, we can't keep going like this. We can't keep hiding from him, and I won't keep lying to him. He's the only man who's been good to me. He thinks of me as a friend.
Jessica: You are.
Nash: I am in love with his wife.
Jessica: I don't like this either, but what choice do we have? Antonio's my husband and I love him. I love you both.
Nash: Do you love us both alike?
Nash: You have to choose, Jessica.
Jessica: I can't.
Nash: What is it?
Antonio: It's Jessica. She has a fever. She's very bad. We have to talk first. Things haven't been the same since the night her horse died. She's been dazed and confused. She cries when she thinks I'm not looking.
Nash: Do you know why?
Antonio: No, I've asked her many times. She tells me it's just my imagination.
Nash: Perhaps it is.
Antonio: No. I know my wife. At first, I thought it was just grief over the horse. But it's something else, something more close to her heart.
Nash: What are you trying to say?
Antonio: She's crying for you, Nash. She's delirious. But she's calling out your name. Is there something you want to tell me?
Jessica: Nash -- Nash -- Nash --
Nash: I'm here. I'm here, my love.
Jessica: You're here. I'm sorry. You asked me to choose, and I couldn't. It's tearing me up inside.
Nash: No, it's my fault. I should never have asked you to choose. You've made yourself sick.
Jessica: No, you were right.
Nash: I'll decide for you. I'll go and I won't come back.
Antonio: I will decide for all of us. You love each other. I can see that.
Jessica: Antonio --
Antonio: I'm not angry.
Nash: Why aren't you angry?
Antonio: Because you can't choose who you fall in love with
Jessica: I'm so sorry.
Antonio: Shh. I love you with all my heart. But your heart belongs to Nash. And I love you enough to let you go.
Antonio: When Jessica gets well, I will not stand in your way. You will always be the great love of my life. And you will always be my friend.
Jessica: Antonio -- what we did to him. He's all alone.
Nash: Antonio will find someone who will love him the way he deserves. I know he will.
Talia: MiLord. Antonio. I don' t mean to intrude, sire, but if you need anything, I'm here. You're not alone.
Jessica: This is really happening.
Nash: Yes, it is. We can finally stop hiding. We can start living our life together. I love you, Jessica.
Jessica: I love you, too, with all my heart and soul.
[Music swells] [Music ends] [Children singing softly]
On the next "One Life to Live" --
Jessica: Antonio's here.
Nash: I'll be good.
Jessica: Well, we weren't the other night.
John: Give me one good reason why I shouldn't have you locked up right now.
