Todd: Hey. Excuse me.
Vincent: I donít think so.
Todd: No, I'm going to see Evangeline.
Vincent: You canít.
Todd: Says who?
Vincent: Me. Now, beat it.
Natalie: All right, this is it -- your new pad. Not bad, huh?
Miles: Well, itís more than "not bad." But, are you sure your motherís ok with this, because she didnít seem happy about it.
Natalie: Look, she may not be happy about it, but she will be once she gets to know you.
Miles: Toddís her brother, Martyís her good friend.
Natalie: And I'm her daughter -- I hold a much higher rank.
Miles: I canít -- I canít thank you enough for all that you're doing for me, Natalie.
Natalie: Itís ok, I'm really glad to help. So, make yourself at home here. You can use it as long as you need it.
Miles: Well, wonít be very long if John McBain has his say. Heís on a mission to send me to prison for the rest of my life.
John: Donít stop talking on my account, now that I know the truth.
Rex: What truth?
John: Donít play games with me, I know whatís going on. Oh Mike. The last thing I want to do is stand in judgment. Mikey, you're my brother and I love you. Tommyís my nephew. But I'm also a cop and this is police business now. Mike, I know who Tommy really is. I know heís Todd Manningís lost son.
Sarah: Cristian, no!
Hunter: Son of a --
Sarah: Hunter. Hunter, say something.
Hunter: Oh --
Sarah: Heís dying! Is he dead?
Cristian: Heís got a pulse, but itís -- itís weak. If we donít stop the bleeding, heís going to die.
Sarah: What do we do?
Cristian: Call an ambulance. Sarah, call 911 now! Go!
Sarah: Hi. Um -- yeah. There -- thereís been a stabbing at the Capricorn club. Someoneís hurt really bad. Hurry up, please! What? What -- whatís going on?
Cristian: Heís gone.
Sarah: Oh. Oh, my God. This isnít happening. This canít be happening. Hunter? Hunter -- why did you do this? Why?
Cristian: Give me your phone. Your phone, Sarah!
Cristian: This is Cristian Vega. I need a cop at -- at Capricorn. I just killed someone.
Todd: I donít answer to you, or anyone else for that matter. I'm here to see Evangeline, so you can step aside.
Vincent: Look, I heard you the first time, ok? But unless your name is Williamson, you're not going anywhere near her.
Todd: Yeah, I know about the "family-only" crap, but I'm an exception.
Vincent: You have to get it cleared by the family and Evangelineís doctors first.
Todd: Did you?
Vincent: Why do you think I'm out here standing here with you?
Todd: You know, I have not seen her for months. So, thereís no way I'm not going to visit her.
Vincent: Do you want me to call security, or handle this myself?
Layla: Whatís going on?
Todd: I'm trying to see your sister.
Layla: Oh, I appreciate it, but we're keeping it to family only.
Todd: You -- you know, this is crazy. She and I are very close -- you know that.
Layla: Hmm. Yeah -- itís doctorís orders, too. Sorry, Todd. You canít go in there.
Vincent: You want me to show him the exit?
Todd: All right, what -- are you going to pick me up and throw me out?
Vincent: Nah. You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to have my man Shaun do it for your ass.
Layla: Wait -- no, wait, wait. Todd, just go, all right, and donít cause a scene because you know Evangeline would not like that.
Todd: Well, she wouldnít want her friends kept from her, either.
Layla: You know what? Babe, you better make that call.
Vincent: You know, I think I'll save Shaun the trouble. Why should he have all of the fun, right?
Layla: Thank Y. I'm going in to see Vange.
Vincent: So you still want to do this the hard way?
Todd: All right, how about this? There you go. Will that buy me in?
Natalie: So, this is all of it -- not a bad place to park, huh?
Miles: Yeah. I wish I knew for how long.
Natalie: Ok. Hereís how it goes, Miles. John can make as much noise as he wants about sending you to prison, but he cannot make that jury convict you.
Miles: Well, he wouldnít have to do much. Itís not looking good -- we both know that.
Natalie: Ok, well, I have seen much worse and I have seen them walk. Make yourself comfortable here. Might be here a lot longer than you think.
Miles: I still canít believe what a truly amazing friend you are, Natalie.
Natalie: Hey, I'm -- I'm really glad to help. What do I got to lose?
Miles: A lot. I mean, your motherís not comfortable with this, your uncle Todd may never forgive you, John is furious with you. When he finds out you're doing this --
Natalie: Ok, Johnís going to blow a gasket, I know, but heís mad at me 90% of the time. I am so used to it.
Miles: You sure thatís not part of the appeal?
Michael: Man, I -- I donít know what you're talking about. You donít know what --
John: Itís over, Mike! You know it and I know it.
Michael: No, I donít know what you're talking about.
John: Oh, you donít? With this guyís help, you've been carrying this around with you for almost a year now.
Rex: Wait --
John: Shut up. I knew it had to be something big for you to risk everything, and now that I know, I understand why.
Rex: John, listen to me. Thereís no secret, thereís -- thereís nothing going on --
John: Donít speak. I only want to hear what my brother has to say. Come on, Mike. Come on. This has been going on since the night Truman got killed. All right? And the way you two were covering for each other, I thought it had something to do with the murder. But thatís not it, is it? You were worried because you thought Truman would tell everybody that Tommy is Todd Manningís son.
Michael: Tommy is my son -- mine! I am the only father he has ever known. I am the only father he "will" ever know.
John: So itís true?
Michael: I'm your brother, John. If that means anything to you, this will never come up again. You'll take it to your grave.
John: I canít do that, Mike, and you know it.
John: Oh, Mike. I canít even begin to imagine what you're going through right now. But itís out there. Tommyís adoption is completely illegal.
Rex: Is it exactly? I mean, if Michael and Marcie didnít know who Tommyís father was when they adopted him, then it --
John: Mike, I know you donít want to lose him.
Michael: Do you really? Have you ever in your life loved somebody so much that you would break any law in the world for them, to care for them? Do you know whatís best for them?
John: What you thought was best.
Michael: Tommy is my son. Marcie and I have raised him since he was practically an infant. We're a family. And I have done what I had to do to keep my family together -- you, of all people, should understand that. You know what itís like to have a family ripped apart!
John: I donít think itís quite like our family, Mike. I donít think you can compare it to the old man being killed.
Michael: Really? Why the hell not? And whatís the difference if the end is the same -- a child losing his father? You know what kind of hell that is. You never come back from it, Johnny. You are damaged goods for the rest of your life.
John: I could've helped you, Mike. Why didnít you come to me with this?
Michael: Why the hell do you think? Itís always the same thing with you, John. The law comes first, everything else is secondary. I knew what you were going to do, John. I always know what you're going to do, so why the hell would I come to you with this? Why -- so you could take my son away from me a couple months early?
John: I donít want to do it!
Michael: Then donít! God, John, is that going to stop you? Heís your nephew. Doesnít that mean anything to you? To take him away from two parents that love him, that he loves so much?
John: If not now, then later! If not me, then somebody else! Think about it, Mike -- is that what you want? You want to spend the rest of your life waiting for some government agency to walk through the door, because thatís whatís going to happen. And what about Manning? Itís his boy. Not only is it illegal, itís morally wrong, as well, Mike.
Michael: You think that Marcie and I are doing wrong by Tommy by giving him more love than any parent ever could? Tell me the truth, John. Do you really believe that Todd Manning could do a better job? Yeah, right! Have you seen his kids? I wouldnít wish that on a rabid dog, let alone a child! But, hey, man, who cares so long as itís all legal!
John: Mike? You think this is easy for me? You think this is what I want?
Michael: Then donít do it!
John: What are you asking me to do? What do you want me to do -- just keep my mouth shut? Is that what you want?
Michael: Yeah, John. Itís what I'm asking you to do.
Natalie: Who exactly have you been talking to about me?
Miles: What do you mean?
Natalie: Well, I just find it funny because my mom and John both think that the only reason I'm helping you is to stick it and frankly, itís getting insulting.
Miles: I asked you about this before, you remember?
Natalie: Yeah, yeah, and I told you then that this has nothing to do with him, that this is everything about helping you.
Miles: I -- I guess I just donít understand why.
Natalie: Because you've never had a friend before, Miles, and I am not talking about Spencer. I mean, a real friend.
Miles: Look, I'm sorry that I'm even questioning it.
Natalie: Donít worry about it. Hmm. You know how long it took me to trust people?
Miles: How long?
Natalie: Well, I donít know. I canít give you an exact date, but I can tell you it was after months and months of me being a bitch.
Miles: Whew -- come on, I doubt that.
Natalie: Oh, you have no idea. I was manipulative and extremely insecure -- I mean, the whole ugly package. But, for whatever reason, there were these people who took me in and helped me out to be a good person, and I was definitely not easy, but I couldnít shake them. And you know what? I finally just realized that they just cared. Some people are like that.
Miles: Well, you're obviously one of them, but --
Miles: Well, arenít you worried about what those people are going to think about you for being friends with me?
Vincent: I'm going to let that one slide -- this time.
Todd: All right. What do I have to do, then?
Vincent: Nothing. It just ainít happening. Get over it.
Todd: If Evangeline knew you guys were shutting me out --
Vincent: Well, she doesnít know, ok? She doesnít know anything right now.
Todd: Actually, you're wrong about that. You know that I was in a coma? Yeah. Come to think of it, everyone I know has been in a coma, and I distinctly remember -- and everyone else does, too -- hearing voices from the people that came to visit me. It was -- it was quite a help.
Vincent: It is not your call.
Todd: Whew -- ok. If family doesnít want me there, I'll go. Uh -- may I send flowers?
Layla: Whatís all this money on the floor?
Vincent: This? Manning tried to buy his way in to see your sister.
Layla: Is he for real?
Vincent: Hmm -- I think he seemed to finally get the message.
Layla: Then heís gone?
Vincent: Yeah. I donít think you'll have to worry about him bothering you or your sister anymore.
Vincent: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Look at you. You're beat. How about if I take you home?
Layla: I'm not tired -- I'm just sad.
Vincent: Yeah, sure you are.
Layla: You know, I donít know what I would do without you here with me. You have been so perfect.
Vincent: Thatís probably the one thing that nobody has ever called me before.
Layla: No, you are, and thank you for being that right now.
Vincent: Any time, any place. , If you're ready to go, I can drop you off at your home.
Layla: Actually, no.
Officer: No, Cris. Sorry, buddy, but we canít let either of you go yet.
Second Officer: Not until we get a detective on the scene.
Cristian: Donít worry about it, guys. When your brotherís a cop, you know how it works. Excuse me. Can I get you anything? A glass of water, maybe something stronger?
Cristian: Look, I'm sorry you had to go through this. But you're going to be ok.
Sarah: Will you?
Vincent: We came here together. How do you plan on getting home unless I drop you off?
Layla: I donít want you to drop me off, Vincent. I want you to stay.
Vincent: Ok. I could do that. Hey, we could order some food in.
Layla: I'm not hungry.
Vincent: Cool. We could hang. We can watch a movie.
Layla: Vincent --
Vincent: You know --
Layla: Vincent? I donít want to watch a movie or eat or anything. I just want to be with you. Do you get what I'm saying here?
Vincent: Oh, I get what you're saying here. I hope so, but are you sure? You know I donít want to rush you, I donít want to push you, I donít want to do --
Layla: Vincent, I'm a big girl. Shh. Nobodyís pushing me or rushing me into anything. I know exactly what I want, and itís you. Come on.
Nurse: What are you doing here?
Cristian: I'm fine. I'll be all right.
Sarah: It could've been you, Cris. One random turn of the knife and you would be the one who was dead.
Cristian: Yeah, it -- it wasnít that close.
Sarah: It totally was. I even thought you were the one who got stabbed at first, for trying to save my life. Why -- why would you do that?
Cristian: Oh, come on. I wasnít going to let him kill you.
Sarah: Thereís this culture somewhere -- I donít really remember, but they say if -- if somebody tries to save your life, then you have to save theirs in return.
Cristian: Letís just hope it doesnít come to that.
Sarah: Thank you.
John: Donít make this about us, Mike.
Michael: How can I not? You're my brother. We're talking about my kid. This is all about family.
John: Thatís what makes this so hard. But as painful as itís going to be for you and Marcie --
Rex: And Tommy -- letís not forget Tommy.
John: You canít keep it secret.
Michael: Why the hell not?
John: Because heís not your kid.
Michael: Well, there you go again with the law. Guess what, Jack -- I donít give a damn about your laws!
John: But I do, Mike! I do -- itís what separates us from the animals! Put yourself in Manningís place for a minute, all right? Whether you like him or not, he thinks his kid is gone, that heís dead. No one deserves to go through that.
Michael: Todd Manning already has two kids. Marcie and I? This is our only shot.
John: Mike, I would do anything to protect you. But you got to give Tommy back, itís the right thing to do.
Michael: Not for Tommy.
John: Thatís not for you to decide.
Michael: I am as much Tommyís father -- he is as much my son any day of the week as Toddís!
John: No, you're not! You're not, Mike! All right? He didnít give him up. Truman "stole" him. He took his kid! Donít you get it? By keeping Tommy from his real family, you're doing that son of a bitchís dirty work for him! And I know -- I know you're too good of a man for that.
Michael: I was. But, Johnny, I love my son. I love him more than I love my own life. And Marcie? This is going to kill her. So, you tell me -- you tell me how I give him up. Huh? Tell me.
John: I donít --
John: I'm on call. This is an emergency. Yeah, McBain. Ok, give me the details.
Rex: What do we do now?
Michael: I canít lose my son. My life. And Marcie? This is going to kill her. So, you tell me -- you tell me how I give him up. Huh? Tell me.
John: I donít --
John: I'm on call. This is an emergency. Yeah, McBain. Ok, give me the details.
Rex: What do we do now?
Michael: I canít lose my son. I canít lose my wife.
John: Look, thereís a -- thereís been a stabbing at Capricorn. I got to go. I'm the only detective on duty.
Michael: Please, John. I am begging you -- as your brother, donít do this. If you do this, we lose everything. If we lose Tommy, we lose it all. Marcie and I -- we can never have children. And they are sure as hell never going to give me another adoption, not after what I did. This will kill my wife. It might kill me. So, please, John, if you love me at all -- let me live my life with my child and my wife. Can you do that for me?
John: You do what you got to do, Mike. I got to go.
Michael: Huh. John! John -- what -- what are you going to do?
John: I donít know, Mike.
[Door opens and closes]
Rex: Maybe you got through to him.
Michael: Oh, God. I hope so. Because if I didnít, I just lost my whole life.
Natalie: Do I look like I give a damn about what other people think about me?
Miles: Uh -- from what you've told me, no.
Natalie: Never have, never will. And if they donít like the fact that I'm helping you -- they're not a real friend.
Miles: Look, I just hope you have some when this is all over, because I'm not going to be around much longer.
Natalie: Ok, stop being so negative. I told you, thereís a way out, we'll find it.
Miles: Look, I want you to know that I never meant to hurt anyone. I just -- I messed up.
Natalie: I know. I know that.
Miles: And I keep doing it. I keep hurting the people I care about.
Natalie: God, she really got to you, didnít she?
Miles: Look, if -- if you're going to put Marty down again --
Natalie: I'm not -- I'm not putting her down, ok? You know how I feel about her, but a broken heart is a broken heart, no matter who gave it to you.
Miles: So, what was it like when you lost John?
Natalie: It killed me. Like getting hit by a truck. And I guess after time, the pain wasnít as excruciating. More like a chronic pain that you learn to live with. Like arthritis. Anyway, what are you going to do?
Miles: Oh, great. At least I have something to look forward to.
Miles: You know, I'd like living here. Itís just I -- I donít want to cause you any more trouble, Natalie.
Natalie: Will you chill?
Natalie: Look, I know that my momís not totally thrilled about it, but sheís not going to back out on the deal.
Miles: Maybe not, but when Todd finds out you're putting me up here, heís going to lose it.
Todd: I was just -- I was visiting my mom, Mary McDonald.
Nurse: Mrs. McDonald is 102.
Todd: Well, no -- did I say "Mom"? No, no, no, no. I meant -- I meant -- I meant -- I meant my grandmom.
Todd: Yeah. I -- I know itís past visiting hours, but -- but I was -- I was just leaving, I promise.
Nurse: Well, Mrs. McDonald doesnít get a lot of visitors. I'll let it go. But you need to leave now.
Todd: Ok, I -- I'm just very concerned about my -- my grandmother, Mary McDonald.
Nurse: Yeah. Donít push it.
Todd: Evangeline, itís me, Todd.
John: Fellas, give me a couple of minutes. I want to talk to Cris.
Cristian: What do you want to know?
John: First off, how are you?
Cristian: I'll be ok.
John: No easy thing, killing a man.
Cristian: Well, itís not like I havenít done it before.
John: Yeah, well, it messed you up pretty good last time, I recall.
Cristian: Yeah, I think this is different.
John: Same end result. It tears you up inside, even for a cop.
John: Look, go home. Get cleaned up, all right? We'll talk about this later. Better take her with you.
Cristian: Yeah. Thanks for being cool about this, huh?
John: Hey, look, just one -- one thing. While you were fighting, this guy happen to say anything to you?
Cristian: Like what?
John: I donít know. He happen to mention Miles Laurence? Anything like that?
Cristian: No. No, all he wanted was money.
John: Ok. Maybe this is just about the money, then. The way this dayís been going --
Vincent: You have never looked any more beautiful than you do right now. And I'm not just saying that because, you know --
Layla: I know. I know, Vincent.
Vincent: Layla --
Layla: You donít have to talk. Vincent, come to bed with me. Come on.
Sarah: So what was John McBain asking you about?
Cristian: He was hoping hunter knew something about Todd. It would have explained why he was holding him for all those weeks, and if someone was paying him to do it.
Officer: C.S.U. has the place sealed off. They have more to do here.
John: Looks like everythingís by the book. Thanks.
Officer: Is that the guy that held Manning hostage all that time?
John: Yeah, but he was too dumb to do it on his own. Now I got to nail the guy behind it.
Todd: I really hate that you were in Cristianís studio when that -- freak racist hit town. That was bad timing, wasnít it? And I -- I keep wondering, God, if I had just -- if I had just brought you with me to Chicago, I -- I wonder, would it have happened? Would you still have been there? Yeah, thatís a stretch, isnít it? You're always telling me, you know, "Todd, you're not God." And you're right. I'm just a control freak who has no control over anything. Even himself. Especially himself. God, this is -- if there was just something I could have done to keep you out of this room, out of this bed. You know -- when I got the death certificate -- hmm -- my son was -- you know, he was no longer alive -- I -- I really lost it that day. I really -- I really fell apart, and you put me back together. And if it hadnít been for you, I donít think I would have made it through that day. You know, you --
Todd: You gave me strength. You gave me strength. And I'm going to need it now, because I'm starting to -- I'm starting to accept the fact that my sonís really dead.
Rex: Johnís not going to tell anybody Tommy is Toddís son.
Michael: You donít know him like I do. He canít not say anything.
Rex: Ok, there is one thing that we're not considering here. Even if this does all shake out and Todd finds out that you have his son, all itís going to take is one look from him to -- to you and Marcie and Tommy and for him to know that heís better off where he is.
Michael: Come on, you donít believe that any more than I do.
Rex: Itís a long shot, I know.
Michael: Todd Manning almost died looking for his son. He wants his little boy back. And when he finds out that we've got him, heís going to come and take him. That is a done deal.
Rex: Not necessarily.
Michael: What are you talking about?
Rex: You remember what we were talking about before John got here? About how, if you took some time off work, and you went out of town with Marcie and Tommy, and never came back?
Singer: I love her eyes singer: And touch me tonight singer: This love feels so fine.
Singer: This love feels so nice
singer: Sweet love divine
Cristian: Look, I'm -- I'm going to let you be. Just try to get some rest, ok?
Sarah: Cris --
Sarah: Can you not go, for a little while, anyway?
Natalie: I will handle Todd.
Miles: You really think you can?
Natalie: Oh, I have before, even though I'm not his favorite niece.
Miles: Well, you will rise to the top of his hate list.
Natalie: Actually, no, thatís reserved for you.
Natalie: I will be fine.
Miles: I will, too, thanks to you.
Natalie: All right. Well, I am -- I'm going to get out of here, let you get some rest, get settled in. Oh -- how late do you sleep in?
Miles: I'm an early riser. All the years in the hospital.
Natalie: Oh. Right on. Well, I'll call you first thing in the morning. And just take it easy. I mean it.
Todd: And I know what you'd say if you could talk, though. You'd say, "Todd, you donít know what happened to your son. You may never find out what happened to your son. Just -- just deal with it. Donít -- donít fly off the handle. Donít go and try to exact revenge on Miles Laurence, or anybody, for that matter. Itís pointless." And you're right, sweetheart. Itís not going to change the fact that my son is gone. But you know me, and I just -- hmm. Somebody out there took my son from me. I just donít know how I'm going to go on living unless I can -- unless I can make that person pay.
Michael: Hey, Johnny, itís -- itís me. Listen -- um -- I'm sorry, but I really need to know -- you know, are you going to do anything about this tonight?
John: No, not tonight.
Michael: And tomorrow?
John: I donít know, Mike. I donít know anything right now.
On the next "One Life to Live" --
Todd: You think you're going to get away with what you did to me. You know I have another eyewitness -- Cole Thornhart.
Cole: If John believes you're innocent, so do I.
Rex: He knows that Tommy is Toddís son.
Michael: Tommy -- what are you going to do about Tommy?
