Nash: Whoo! Itís not much.

Man: So, this is it. Itís not much.

Banks: Well, if you consider where I was living before, this is actually a step up.

Man: Where were you -- prison? Never mind -- I donít want to know. I just need my money at the end of each week.

Banks: Oh, you'll have it. I intend to be rolling in it real soon.

Man: Asa Buchanan?

Banks: Yeah.

Man: I still canít believe heís gone.

Banks: What do you mean, "gone"?

Man: He died two days ago. Itís been all over the news -- you havenít heard?

Banks: No. No, I didnít.

Bo: All right, I'll call you back. What? Yes, come in. Nora, hi. Sorry. I donít mean to bark at you.

Nora: You're entitled.

Bo: Well, we got a full plate today, starting with Miles Laurence -- his preliminary hearing and everything. Do you -- do you need to go over things with me or something?

Nora: I'm not talking about work, Bo.

Bo: Ok. What?

Nora: You. Your father just died. Why donít you take some time?

Bo: Because I got too much to do.

Nora: You think burying yourself under work is going to make everything better?

Bo: No. No, you're right. I just canít believe heís gone.

Officer: Hey, Detective, you back for good?

Antonio: Thatís the plan.

Officer: Thatís great, I'm glad to hear it.

Natalie: Mom, what -- Miles.

Miles: Hi.

Natalie: Hi.

Miles: I havenít seen your mother all morning. But I -- I thought I'd make breakfast for everyone. Thatís ok, isnít it?

Natalie: Oh -- yeah -- it smells great.

Miles: Oh. Good, I hope so -- I'm new at this.

Natalie: Hmm.

Miles: I figured if I follow the directions in the cookbook, what could go wrong, right?

Natalie: Sure.

[Natalie chuckles]

Miles: Ooh, itís a little burned.

Natalie: Ok, I like my food well-done.

Miles: Oh, good. Oh, my preliminary hearingís this morning. I'll have to be leaving soon.

Natalie: Not alone, you're not.

Max: Blair?

Blair: Max. What are you doing here? I thought you'd be halfway to Argentina by now.

Max: My -- my plane doesnít leave for a while.

Blair: So you thought you'd stop by the courthouse for old times' sake?

Max: Yeah, well, we -- we clocked a few hours in here, you and me.

Blair: Good times?

Max: I miss them -- good and bad. Uh -- look. I knew you'd be here and I didnít want to leave without seeing you one more time.

Blair: You know, Max, I thought we went through all this yesterday at Asaís funeral.

Max: Yeah, we did, we did. I know, and donít worry -- I'm not going to kiss you again.

Todd: You kissed him?

Blair: Uh --

Marcie: Hide the knives!

Michael: What?

Marcie: Well, your brother thinks I'm a psycho stabber!

Michael: Come on, donít even joke about that.

Marcie: What? Come on! I'm sorry, but even in his worst nightmares, for your brother to think that I killed Spencer Truman -- donít get me wrong. I didnít love the guy, but murder him? What possible motive would I even have?

Marty: John.

John: Didnít wake you, did I?

Marty: No, I -- ooh. I just had trouble sleeping last night, so I -- oh, I must've dozed off.

John: Whatís wrong?

Marty: No, I just had a -- a bad dream. I donít remember it, though. What are you doing here?

John: I just wanted to stop by and -- and make sure you were all right.

Marty: You know, you can tell me, whatever it is.

John: Off the record?

Marty: Of course.

John: I think I figured out who killed Truman, and it wasnít you.

Marty: You have proof it was somebody else, hard evidence?

John: Canít say much at this point. I just want to let you know I'm still on the case and I havenít given up. Neither should you.

Marty: No, I just -- I wish I could remember what happened, why -- why the scissors were in my hand, what did I do once I raised them?

John: You may not have to.

Marty: Well, what if you're wrong?

John: I'm not.

Marty: Look, I had motive. He threatened Cole. Any mother would do the same to protect her son.

Michael: Listen, John does not think that we killed Spencer.

Marcie: Well, then why did he even bring it up?

Michael: Hmm? Heís being thorough, you know? The guyís got to look under every rock.

Marcie: Why didnít he look at Marty Saybrooke? She confessed.

Michael: He doesnít believe she did it.

Marcie: Thatís because he has a thing for her.

Michael: No. He doesnít let stuff like that get in his way --

Marcie: Oh.

Michael: Unfortunately.

Marcie: Uh-uh. She had means, she had motive. And, ok, you know, maybe I did tell him that I would kill anyone who hurt my son, but, you know, come on! What is he thinking? He knows I know better.

Lindsay: Hey, guys.

Michael: Hey.

Marcie: Hey.

Lindsay: Hi, doughnut. Oops -- I'm sorry to interrupt.

Marcie: Uh-uh.

Lindsay: I got your call.

Marcie: Yes. Thank you for coming.

Michael: Ok, well, I should let you ladies get to it.

Marcie: No. Why donít you stay? You know, this isnít private.

Michael: Um -- I got stuff to take care of. I'll see you later.

Marcie: Mm-hmm.

Lindsay: Huh.

[Marcie sighs]

Lindsay: Whatís wrong?

Marcie: Oh, my husbandís driving me crazy, but I digress. I have good news.

Lindsay: Wow. And who couldnít use that?

Marcie: You are going to love this. Do you know who I'm looking at?

Lindsay: Um -- me, I think.

Marcie: Well, not just you, but Llanviewís 2007 Woman of the Year.

Blair: The kiss didnít mean anything, Todd.

Todd: That doesnít say much for you, lover boy.

Blair: Max and I are just friends, ok?

Todd: What, do you get turned on by funerals?

Blair: Todd --

Max: No, itís ok, Blair. Donít go get in the mud with him.

Todd: Well, I'll bet you'd like that -- to see Blair in a -- in a mud-wrestling competition.

Max: Ok, thatís it.

Blair: No, you know what?

Max: But, no, no -- he can take pot shots at me all he wants, but once he starts on you --

Todd: You've got the hots for her, man. Why donít you just admit it and get over it? You lost.

Blair: Stop it! We're here to fight Miles Laurence today, not Max, all right?

Todd: It seems like he started it. So, what do you want anyway? A little -- a little quickie? You know, blow the dust off the --

Blair: Uh -- for your information, Max is on his way back to Argentina.

Todd: Oh. And he was going to give you a "companion flies free" ticket?

Max: Well, since you brought it up, yes. I asked Blair to come back with me.

Todd: He did?

Blair: Yeah.

Todd: So isnít that winter down there or something? Itís -- itís not conducive to vacation.

Max: Oh, no, actually, itís great in the winter. I'm sure that Jack and Starr are just going to love it, and I told Blair that if she and the kids like it, they could stay.

Todd: Oh --

Blair: Donít even think about it, Todd.

Max: No, why donít I just give you two a moment.

Blair: You know, when are you ever going to get over this?

Todd: When that son of a bitch stops jerking you around.

Blair: Maybe he wasnít doing that.

Todd: So you're -- you're really considering this?

Blair: Well, actually, I did.

Todd: Oh.

Miles: Donít you have enough to deal with? Your grandfather died, you have a new job. You donít need to be holding my hand at my hearing.

Natalie: Did it ever occur to you that maybe I need a distraction?

Miles: Todayís no big deal. The judge is going to decide whether my case goes to trial. Itís a foregone conclusion.

Natalie: And you would do it for me.

Miles: Well, yeah -- definitely. But what makes you so sure I'm not guilty?

Natalie: You have a good heart, Miles.

Miles: Hmm. You're an incredible friend. I have to get ready for court.

Natalie: Ok.

[Knock on door]

Natalie: Michael?

Michael: Hey.

Natalie: Uh -- who you looking for?

Michael: You.

Bo: Is Matthew doing any better today?

Nora: Yeah, a little bit, you know? Nigelís been helping him to feel better. Wow -- he loved his grandfather like crazy.

Bo: They both did.

Nora: Yeah.

Bo: I think those two were probably País best friends.

Nora: Well, look, donít cut yourself off that list.

Bo: No. No, we werenít friends. He was my father.

Nora: Canít be both?

Bo: Sure you can. I try with Matthew, I try to be his friend and his father because I donít want to make the same mistakes Pa made. But, you know, now, I -- I donít know. I have so many questions.

Nora: Well, that happens, you know, when -- when somebody dies. You start looking at life very differently. This is none of my business, but if you need the time, take it. Donít force things. I'll let you know whatís going on in court.

Bo: Hey.

Nora: Yeah?

Bo: Thanks a lot, Nora.

Nora: Yeah.

Talia: You're late. Itís already mid-morning.

Antonio: Itís good to be back.

Talia: Itís good having you back. The Commissioner really missed you.

Antonio: Yeah, he said as much at the funeral.

Talia: Well it was a really tough day for him yesterday, and for you.

Antonio: Yeah, well, I was there to support Bo.

Talia: I'm talking about you having to dodge Jessica and Nash.

Antonio: Well, I'm not going to pretend it doesnít suck having them in my face all the time.

Jessica: I just need to get away.

Nash: When did this come up?

Jessica: This morning. I -- I wasnít keeping anything from you, I promise.

Nash: Donít you ink this is something we should've talked about?

Jessica: Oh, well, you -- you'd want to come with us.

Nash: Yeah.

Jessica: Well, you canít right now, Nash, not with the vineyard and trying to buy out Antonio.

Nash: Jessica, you -- you shouldnít be traveling right now. You just got out of the hospital from a liver transplant, what --

Jessica: Well, I'll be going on the family jet, and thereís going to be a nurse waiting for me on the other end.

Nash: The other end? Where -- where is that, exactly?

Jessica: Well, I want to go and see Kelly and my brothers, and, you know, Bree is Zaneís cousin, or his aunt or something, and --

Nash: London. You're talking about London.

Jessica: Yes -- I know it sounds impulsive.

Nash: "Impulsive"? Yeah.

Jessica: Well, I talked to Kelly for a long time on the phone last night, and you know, Michael cleared me to go.

Nash: Jessica, what is all this about? I mean -- except for our night at Niagara Falls in your hospital room, we havenít even had a honeymoon yet.

Jessica: This has nothing to do with you. I promise.

Nash: Oh, ok, yeah, sure. I -- I know you'd never lie to me. I just donít understand.

Jessica: I just -- I need a little space. Can you give me that?

Lindsay: I am going to be the woman of the year?

Marcie: Yes.

Lindsay: I didnít even know I was nominated.

Marcie: Well, you se the thing is, you werenít exactly the committeeís first choice.

Lindsay: It was Nora, right? Nora got it again and she turned it down, right?

Marcie: No, itís not Nora. Do you know Martha Winston -- you know, the lady who runs the Llanview charities?

Lindsay: Well, of course, I know who Martha Winston is. Sheís -- sheís second only to Viki Davidson as patron saint of Llanview.

Marcie: Not anymore.

Lindsay: What?

Marcie: Apparently, she had a fling with her hottie assistant guy, you know?

Lindsay: What?

Marcie: Yes, and now sheís leaving her husband for him.

Lindsay: No way!

Marcie: Yes, so, they made you the Woman of the Year instead.

Lindsay: How did my name even come up?

Marcie: Guilty. I nominated you, but I didnít want to tell you because I wanted it to be a surprise.

Lindsay: Oh, I'm -- I'm -- I'm not surprised -- I'm shocked.

[Marcie chuckles]

Lindsay: I canít believe it.

Marcie: Believe it. Look at all the amazing things you've done this year, Lindsay, especially that advocacy group for moms and children? Believe me, it wasnít a tough sell, ok?

Lindsay: I -- I just donít know what to say.

Marcie: You deserve this. You've helped so many people. Itís a testament to the kind of woman that you are. Jen would've been really proud of her mom right now.

Lindsay: I'm not really so sure about that.

Natalie: Um -- ok, Michael. I mean, I just donít have too much time. I'm going to Miles' hearing.

Michael: No, I'll -- I'll be really quick. I just -- I didnít -- I didnít know who else to come to.

Natalie: About what?

Michael: Well, do you have any pull left with John -- I mean, like any at all? Because if you do, I -- I could really use your help.

John: Jury selection starts today -- did your lawyer talk to you about that?

Marty: Yeah, yeah. She said she was going to try to get a lot of women on the jury, said they might be more sympathetic towards my motive.

John: Well, you pled not guilty. There really isnít a motive.

Marty: Why are you so sure I'm innocent?

John: Well, for starters, your memories donít include the actual stabbing.

Marty: Thereís a lot of reasons for that.

John: Really? All right. Well, how about you explain how you woke up in the on-call room, passed out with a head injury we canít explain? And I just know.

Marty: Yeah, well, thatís not going to quite cut it in court.

John: Yeah, but reasonable doubt will, and thereís a lot of that.

Marty: It doesnít mean a jury is going to see it that way.

John: Look, you love your son. I think anyone can see that. A murder conviction takes you away from him. I think that alone means thereís no way you could've killed Truman.

Marty: Not necessarily.

John: What are you, opposing counsel today?

Marty: Look, I'm playing devilís advocate.

John: Yeah, ok, I'll play. So letís say you killed Truman because you're trying to defend Blair. Would you really have stabbed him nine times and then run away?

Marty: Look, I must have.

John: You donít know that for sure.

Marty: You know what -- and neither do you. The D.A. considers this case closed, so if you are using department time to try to find another suspect, you could get in a lot of trouble.

John: If the truth comes out, I donít care.

Marty: Yeah, well, I do.

John: All right. Well, then maybe you can understand where I'm coming from here, all right? You're already in a lot of trouble, and I'm going to get you out of it, no matter what I have to do.

(Music plays throughout )

Nash: Yeah, you can have anything you want -- even space. Just -- tell me why you need it.

Jessica: I'm -- I'm just feeling a little overcrowded here in Llanview -- not by you, not by you, at all.

Nash: You sure?

Jessica: Oh -- of course I'm sure. I've never been more sure of anything in my entire life.

Nash: Then who Antonio?

Jessica: I knew it would be bad, but I --

Nash: Oh.

Jessica: Itís like heís everywhere, you know? Our families are so connected, I canít get away from him. Losing Asa, my Grandfather -- I mean, I miss him so much. Itís not the same around here without him.

Nash: Yeah. You know, losing Asa -- I'm just not sure the traveling, thatís really going to help you with that.

Jessica: A little time and distance might help with things a little.

Nash: How about work?

Jessica: Todd said I could write from London.

Nash: Hmm. So thatís it? You're sure?

Jessica: Honey, nobody knows me there, you know? I can go shopping and I can take the kids to the museum and not worry about somebody around the corner whispering about me, about what I've done.

Nash: What you did -- marrying me?

Jessica: No. No! But letís face it, I -- I cheated on Antonio. And everybody knows it.

Banks: I canít believe Asa Buchanan is actually dead.

Man: You were an admirer?

Banks: Yeah, something like that.

Man: Well, he was a great man -- rich as hell. I'd like to be that rich.

Banks: And why canít you be?

Man: Yeah, right.

Banks: All it takes is a little determination and the right opportunity.

Man: Well, you let me know when you find that opportunity.

Banks: I already have.

Talia: Look, I'm sorry we didnít throw you a "welcome back" party, but you kind of sprang this on us.

Antonio: Might still be time.

Talia: Well, you're not rethinking coming back to work?

Antonio: Oh -- well, maybe I should wait a couple of days. You know, the commissioner just lost his father, and I just -- you know, I donít want to lay any more on him.

Talia: Putting one of his best detectives back in the field -- I'm pretty sure he can handle it. If he couldnít, he wouldnít be at work today.

Antonio: Good point.

Talia: Yeah, so what are you waiting for? Oh.

Antonio: Uh, warm up the coffee, get the case files ready. I'll be right back.

Talia: Yeah. I'll be here.

[Knock on door]

Bo: Yeah? Hey, Antonio. Come on in. Have a seat.

Antonio: I'm sorry about your father, Commissioner.

Bo: Thank you. I appreciate that. What can I do for you?

Antonio: Well, I -- I'm not sure the timing for this is -- is right.

Bo: The answerís yes.

Antonio: You didnít even know what I was going to ask you.

Bo: Well, you want to get back to work, donít you?

Antonio: Yeah. Yeah, I do. Actually, I -- I need to get back to work.

Bo: I'll be honest with you -- I need your help. So, welcome back, Detective.

Marcie: Lindsay, how could Jen not be proud of you? Look at everything you've done this year -- in her honor.

Lindsay: I'm not always the woman you think I am.

Marcie: I know that you've done things in your past that you're not proud of. But since Jenís passing, Lindsay, you have changed.

Lindsay: Well, losing a child -- you canít help but change. But you do things that you never thought were even possible.

Marcie: I know. Thatís why I nominated you for Woman of the Year, because thatís what you are to me. You know, I never knew my mom, except in pictures. And that is what you have been for me -- you have been right there for me when I needed you most. You're my family, as much as any of my blood relatives.

Natalie: I'm sorry to break it to you, but, huh, I pretty much have no pull with your brother these days. Heís not going to listen to me, because heís kind of mad at me, because I'm not part of the Miles lynch mob.

Michael: Yeah. I --I thought it was kind of a long shot.

Natalie: I mean, whatís up? What do you need an assist with your brother for?

Michael: Donít worry about it. Itís not your problem.

Natalie: Michael, I donít understand. I mean, the two of you have been getting so close the last couple of years.

Michael: Yeah. We were.

Natalie: Not anymore?

Michael: No.

Natalie: All right, look, um -- I'm sorry that I canít help you with John, but if you really want someone to help you with him, I would suggest you speak with Marty Saybrooke.

Ofc. Stokes: Excuse me. I got to bring the prisoner to court.

John: Are you ready?

Marty: Do I have a choice?

John: Hmm. Go ahead. I'll -- I'll walk you over to keep the press at bay.

Marty: Thank you.

John: Are those necessary?

Ofc. Stokes: Going to go by the book.

Marty: Itís all right, really.

Todd: That must've been a hell of a kiss. You're going to jet off to another hemisphere to be --

Max: Oh, just shut the hell up, Manning.

Todd: So you're just going to throw the kids on a plane, huh?

Blair: No, Todd. But the thought of starting over -- it did appeal to me.

Todd: So you're not going?

Blair: No, I donít want to take the kids away from you right now, and I didnít want to go, either.

Max: Ok! Is the tantrum over? Can I say good-bye now?

Todd: Sure -- what are you waiting for?

Max: Ahem.

Blair: Look, I'm -- I'm sorry we got derailed.

Max: Why should today be any different? It was really good to see you again. And I meant everything I said before, but -- I get where you're coming from.

Blair: I hope so.

Max: Know it. I get you, Blair. I always have. But if you should have a change of heart, the view from my veranda is not to be missed. And we've got some damn fine tango down there.

Blair: It'd be worth it just to come down there to see you do it. You have a safe trip, ok?

Max: Thatís the plan.

Blair: Ok.

Max: Oh, and Todd? Blair is not coming with me -- not because of the kids, but itís because of you. You see, if you werenít such a moron, I wouldnít have to tell you that you're the love of her life. Better luck next time, huh?

Blair: Well, I canít believe he said that.

Todd: Well, hell, heís always had a big mouth.

Blair: You know, Todd, we donít belong together no matter how we feel about each other.

Todd: You mean you and him or you and me?

Blair: You and me. We're good parents, we're good partners, but we're not together, and so neither one of us has a right to -- to weigh in on who the person is with, kisses, or anything. Is that clear? Is it clear?

Todd: Is it -- I donít Ė

Reporter: Mr. Laurence, how do you plan to beat the charges?

Second reporter: Is it true your wife is annulling your marriage?

Todd: Hi, Miles.

Blair: Letís watch that bastard fry.

Nash: Jessica, you have nothing to be ashamed of.

Jessica: I know. I'm not ashamed. I'm guilty. I feel guilty and I canít help it. You know, we are so happy, and Antonio --

Nash: Isnít.

Jessica: No.

Nash: I know. And I feel bad about that. I do. I actually do. But I donít give a damn about what other people think. And neither should you.

Jessica: I know, I just -- I need a break from everything, not -- not you.

Nash: But still --

Jessica: Not you --

Nash: I mean, with your condition, and I'm not going to be there.

Jessica: I'm going to have Hepatitis C for the rest of my life, so I'm going to have to learn to live with it.

Nash: The rest of your life, but you havenít been out of the hospital that long.

Jessica: I promise you, I wouldnít leave if I didnít feel fine. And I got an ok from the doctors.

Nash: Mindís made up?

Jessica: I'm sorry that I made this decision without you.

Nash: Yeah, well, hey -- you know, hey, I come up with stuff in the middle of the night all the time. I guess I'll give you this one.

Jessica: Thank you.

Nash: Sure. But you're going to owe me one.

Jessica: I promise I will make it up to you the minute I get back.

Nash: Oh, yeah?

Jessica: Mm-hmm.

Nash: I donít think you're going to have to wait that long.

Jessica: Really?

Bo: You can start with these cases right here, if thatís not too much.

Antonio: No, no. Thank you, Commissioner, and thank you for letting me back so soon.

Bo: Yeah, Antonio, I donít like to get into personal matters on the job. But --

Antonio: Jessicaís your niece.

Bo: And everything that you did for her -- you know, giving her part of your liver, and --

Antonio: It didnít take. Not much did with Jessica and me.

Bo: I know, and I'm sorry about that.

Antonio: Be happy for her. She is.

Bo: Yeah, but I've been in your shoes, and it doesnít feel good.

Antonio: Yeah, well, what are you going to do?

Bo: You're going to get through it, and you will get through it, trust me.

Antonio: Well, we'll find out.

Bo: No, you will. You're going to find somebody thatís going to make you happy and somebody thatís --

[Knock on door]

Bo: Really right for you. Yes, come in.

Talia: Sorry to interrupt, but I've got news.

Todd: Hi, Natalie. Where are you sitting? Thereís a place right behind me. Plenty of access to my back. Of course, you've already done your damage, havenít you?

Natalie: Can you just stuff it for once, and let the man have his day in court?

Todd: Like he gave me?

Natalie: I am not discussing this with you here.

Todd: Where would you like to do it? At Vikiís? Maybe during Christmas? Be nice. You can bet circus boy wonít be there, though. He should be rotting in prison by then.

Natalie: Excuse me. Miles. Hey.

Miles: Hi, Natalie. I told you not to come --

Natalie: No, I know, not to come, I know, but did you think I was going to let Todd and Blair have their feast on you without backup? How'd it go out there with the press?

Miles: No, Howard handled them.

Howard: Miles, I need to make a call. Be back in a few.

Natalie: You doing ok?

Miles: Well, I have to admit, I'm a little nervous.

Natalie: You're going to be fine.

Reporter: Ms. Saybrooke --

Second reporter: Ms. Saybrooke --

John: All right, thatís it, no questions, no que-- get back. Hey. He stokes, can you give us a minute, here?

Ofc. Stokes: Of course, Lieutenant.

John: Thank you. I would take those cuffs off if I could.

Marty: Itís ok, really, you know. Gives the press something to write about.

John: Yeah, well, they're pretty busy with that other case.

Marty: What case?

John: Never mind.

Marty: Miles?

John: Yeah, they --

Marty: Yeah.

John: See if they have enough evidence to go to trial.

Marty: Yeah, I wish I had never met Miles Laurence. Or Spencer Truman.

John: I wish you hadnít, either.

Talia: Laurenceís preliminary hearing is about to get started. I just got a call from the court. Apparently, thereís a lot of press there already.

Bo: Do you need more security?

Talia: No, I think we're good. I just wanted to keep you updated.

Bo: All right, thank you. You probably didnít know, but Antonioís back on the job.

Talia: I did hear that, actually. Itís good to have you back, Detective.

Bo: And I'm glad that you feel that way, because I'd like you two to be working together on some new cases, ok? I think you make a good team.

Antonio: Yeah, that is, if you can stand me.

Talia: I think I can struggle through it. So I will keep you updated on the hearing, commissioner. And again, I'm really sorry about your dad.

Bo: Thanks. I appreciate that, Talia, and thanks for being at his funeral.

Talia: Well, everybody here is behind you. If you need anything, you know, we got your back. And I'll be at my desk if you need anything.

Bo: You ok with Sahid as your go-to uniform?

Antonio: Oh, yeah. Yeah, sheís a great cop.

Talia: Ok.

Lindsay: Oh, God. Woman of the Year?

Marcie: Yes.

Lindsay: Woman of the Year?

Marcie: Yes, Woman of the Year.

Lindsay: I canít believe it.

Marcie: Oh.

Lindsay: I canít believe it and I donít know what to say, except thatís not the reason I do charity work. You know that, right?

Marcie: I do know that. Itís for Jen.

Lindsay: Uh-huh.

Marcie: You know, I'm a mom, too. I get it. I get it more now than ever, especially knowing this little guy over here might be my one and only.

Lindsay: Is Michael handling that any better?

Marcie: Ugh. Heís having a hard time, you know? I just -- I just wish thatís all it was.

Lindsay: Why, is there something else thatís wrong?

Marcie: John is so convinced that Marty Saybrooke did not kill Spencer Truman that heís trying to connect Michael to the murder again. And on top of that, me, too.

Tara: No comment.

Reporter: Just a quick --

Tara: Clothes look great, Marty. How are you holding up?

Marty: I'm handling it. Tara: You know I'll do everything I can to get you the best possible jury.

Marty: And I appreciate it. I appreciate everything you're doing for me.

Tara: Well, let me check in with the clerk.

John: You want me to stick around for this mess?

Marty: No. I know you have more important things to do than stay here with me.

John: Itís like I told you, I'm going to have another suspect before your case goes before a jury.

Marty: I hope you're not going through all of this for nothing.

John: Itís not nothing. Itís just the right thing to do. You hang tough.

Marty: I'll be fine.

Reporter: Laurenceís hearing is starting. Yeah, I just got a text message from inside.

Judge: I've made a determination in this case based on the charges filed previously. In the case of the commonwealth vs. Miles Laurence, the charge of attempted murder of Todd Manning is dismissed for lack of evidence.

Natalie: Oh --

Todd: That is totally ridiculous. I'll give it to you -- you are one first-class idiot!

Nora: Ok, Todd, sit down right now, not another word.

Blair: Come on, Todd.

Nora: Sit down.

Todd: Well, what are you looking at?

Jessica: I like your sendoff.

Nash: Yeah?

Jessica: Yeah.

Nash: How many hours until your flight?

Jessica: Enough for a proper goodbye.

Nash: Nothing proper about it.

Jessica: Hmm -- are you trying to make me miss my flight?

Nash: Works for me.

Jessica: Well, itís a family jet, so --

Nash: Mm-hmm. So? Then I guess I'll have to remind you to miss me.

Jessica: I donít need a reminder. But I'm very happy to accept.

Antonio: Ready to get to work?

Talia: Well, you're not wasting any time, are you?

Antonio: I already wasted too much.

Talia: All right, fine. Lay on me -- lay it on me.

[Antonio laughs]

Talia: I'm sorry.

Antonio: Ok.

Talia: Well --

Antonio: I -- you might want to be careful there, Sahid. You might make your boyfriend jealous. Your George guy? Your -- yeah.

Talia: George?

Antonio: Right.

Talia: Of course, yeah.

Antonio: You guys good?

Talia: Yeah. Great. Like, totally great.

Antonio: Good, because you deserve a good guy.

Talia: You think?

Antonio: He is, isnít he?

Talia: Yeah, heís, um, the most amazing man I've ever met.

Banks: Rest in peace, old man. I guess I wonít be getting to see you, after all.

Banks: Now you, on the other hand -- you and I are going to be seeing each other real soon.

Nora: Sit down now. Your honor, we have a witness that saw Mr. Manning drugged and incapacitated while being held by Mr. Laurence. He will testify that Mr. Laurence ordered him to administer a lethal dose of drugs to Mr. Manning.

Howard: I object, your honor. The witness is a 16-year-old boy who has had numerous run-ins with the law. And he resented Mr. Laurence for marrying his mother. He would say and do anything to interfere with this marriage.

Nora: A marriage that Marty Saybrooke was blackmailed into.

Howard: Thatís hearsay.

Nora: Hearsay?

Judge: My decision is final. Your witness, Madam D.A., isnít credible. It is my judgment that the only person responsible for the disappearance of Todd Manning is the deceased, Hunter Atwood. Without his testimony, there isnít enough evidence for a trial, let alone a conviction. Mr. Laurence, please stand.

Howard: Your honor, if I may -- I move that these other charges be dropped, as well.

Nora: Oh, now, see, I'm sorry, your honor, but this is becoming a travesty.

Howard: That my client was even brought in at all is the travesty.

Miles: May I speak, your honor?

Judge: I caution you, Mr. Laurence, anything you say without advice of counsel can --

Miles: I want to change my plea to guilty.

[Gallery murmurs]

Reporter: What happened?

Officer: The judge just threw out attempted murder. But everything else Laurence did to his wife -- he just plead guilty.

Lindsay: I canít believe that John would even suggest that you're capable of murdering anyone.

Marcie: He says heís just covering it from every angle.

Lindsay: Well, if thereís anything I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, itís that you could not, would not, and did not kill Spencer Truman.

Marcie: You know, I kind of did tell him that I would do anything to protect my son, including kill someone. But I was making a point, Lindsay. I wasnít making a confession. Itís what any mom would do, right?

Lindsay: Absolutely. Oh, nobody could love a child more than you love Tommy. And nothing should ever take him away from you.

On the next ďOne Life to Live" --

Rex: I might have a way for you to get the money you need, if you're willing to take a little risk.

Michael: The truth does not have to come out.

John: People already know.

Todd: One way or another, you're going to pay for what you did to me.
