[Laughter behind door]
[Knocking on door]
James: Oh--oh, my God. No! Ha ha!
James: [Indistinct] Ha ha ha ha!
Deanna: Ha ha!
Starr: Sorry. Am I interrupting something?
Echo: Get out of my way.
Dorian: I don't think so.
Echo: I swear, Dorian, I will run you over.
Dorian: [Giggles] You're still not gonna get to chuckles in time. You know, I would love to be a fly on the wall when Viki plays that recording for him.
Echo: What recording?
Dorian: You know the one I'm talking about. The one that Clint made of you getting him to swear to secrecy, the one that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that you've been lying to Charlie all along.
[Knocking on door]
Charlie: Viki. Um... you ok? I mean, I saw something on the news about what happened at the custody hearing and-- come on in.
Viki: Thank you. Well, fortunately, the hearing wasn't a total loss. The judge awarded temporary custody to Joey and to Aubrey.
Charlie: Well, good. That's something. They'll take good care of him and--but you're all right?
Charlie: Can I get you a water? Soda--
Viki: No. Thank you. Nothing. Nothing.
Charlie: They mentioned on the news that Niki Smith made an appearance.
Viki: I'm fine now.
Charlie: Good. Because it must've been Niki who came by earlier. She kind of attacked Echo.
Viki: Niki came to see Echo?
Charlie: Yeah. Yeah. Of course, Echo didn't know it was Niki.
Viki: Oh! I wouldn't be too sure about that.
Bo: How are you doing?
Clint: You really want to know?
Bo: I'm here. What do the doctors say?
Clint: They say I'm dying.
Bo: No. This is your first heart attack. They'll do a bypass.
Clint: Won't work. The attack lasted too long. There was too much damage. End stage heart failure. Bottom line--it's over.
Bo: How much time did they give you?
Matthew: Destiny, what's wrong? Are you all right?
Destiny: No, and I'm sorry. I am so, so sorry.
Matthew: About what?
Destiny: [Cries] Blanca Morales thinks you killed Eddie Ford.
Destiny: I never should've talked to her, but she was acting like she had this big scoop that your mom was the killer. So I had to defend her. And then Blanca got this idea that you were the killer, and I told her that was crazy, but I'm just scared that she's gonna say it on TV--that you killed Eddie Ford.
[Pounding on door]
Brody: I need you to open the door. Now. Maybe they already left.
Ford: Or maybe Tess was never even here. So much for that idea. I was sure she'd be here by now.
Tess: You looking for me?
Cutter: Make yourselves at home.
Tess: We've been expecting you.
Cutter: Can I interest you gentlemen in some coffee? That's right. I don't have any
Brody: Well, this isn't a social call. Ford was assaulted. Tess knocked him out. Let's go.
Tess: Oh! So I'm being arrested? I thought I was going to St. Ann's. Where are the guys in the white coats? Ford, wasn't that the deal? Aubrey and Joey would give you Ryder if you had me committed? What's the matter? Did they back out?
Ford: What if Joey and Aubrey back out?
Brody: Then you get Tess released. You've got nothing to lose. What are you waiting for?
Tess: You're having me committed?
Ford: You knocked me out. You could've killed me. Call St. Ann's.
Starr: So what are you doing here? I thought you were staying the night at La Boulaie.
Deanna: With you at the hospital all the time, it felt weird, like I was imposing. And James has been helping me make some calls about jobs.
Starr: So you'll find your own place soon.
Deanna: I've gotta make enough money to pay that lawyer first. I'll probably have to get two jobs if I'm gonna get the 20 grand he wants to tell me about my mom.
Starr: Actually, I have a better idea.
Echo: And how is any of this your business?
Dorian: Everything you do is my business. Bottom line, you're not gonna live happily ever after with Viki's husband.
Echo: Why? Because you struck out with him? Don't mess with me, Dorian--you're out of your league. You come at me and I will be forced to tell your good friend Viki how you blackmailed Clint to get that recording, how you were willing to let him die.
Dorian: He's alive, isn't he? No harm, no foul.
Clint: The doctors won't give me a date, but they say I'd be ill-advised to plan a Memorial Day picnic.
Bo: What about a transplant?
Clint: With my blood type, I wouldn't move up the list in time. Aren't you gonna say something?
Bo: Like what?
Clint: Like serves you right?
Viki: Charlie, I am fairly certain that Echo knew she was dealing with Niki Smith.
Charlie: Echo wouldn't lie about something like that.
Viki: Oh, yes, she would.
Viki: Because I think that Niki must have showed her something. Something she doesn't want you to know anything about.
Charlie: What are you talking about?
Destiny: Please don't hate me. I feel so bad.
Matthew: It's not your fault.
Destiny: Blanca kept asking me about it. But she can't lie about it on TV, right? I mean, you could sue her for libel or slander or whatever it's called. Ask your mom. She'll know.
Matthew: Either way, there is no lawsuit if it's true.
Destiny: What are you talking about? It's not true. You didn't shoot Eddie Ford. Matthew?
Matthew: I'm sorry.
Destiny: No, there's no-- you didn't shoot Eddie Ford. You couldn't have.
Matthew: I'm so sorry.
Matthew: I shot him. I killed Eddie Ford.
Echo: Get out of my way or I swear I will deck you, Dorian.
Dorian: Oh, please. Go to Chuckles. I have done my part. And I'm sure Viki's already delivered the coup de grace.
Charlie: And what is that?
Viki: I can't do this.
Charlie: You can't do what? Come on, Viki, what is going on?
Viki: All the way over here, I kept telling myself I was doing this for you--that you deserved to know the truth. But this is gonna hurt you, Charlie, and I don't want to do that. Everyone makes mistakes, but I don't wish you any more pain. I really don't.
Charlie: What's on that?
Viki: Ok, this reveals who Echo really is. I tried to warn you so many times and you chose not to listen, but you know what? It's not my job to protect you anymore, so... you can listen to that or burn it or throw it away. It's up to you.
Echo's voice: Charlie and I are having an affair.
Bo: You think I'm happy to hear my brother is dying?
Clint: Maybe you'd prefer to see him doing a life sentence at Statesville.
Bo: If he deserved it.
Clint: You're lucky I never got into a courtroom, because a jury would've sent me home in time for dinner. No, it took the man upstairs to lower the boom.
Bo: How's the family taking the news?
Clint: You're the only one I've told. Nora's gonna bust open the champagne, because now nobody will ever know what happened in Eddie Ford's motel room. Matthew's safe.
Destiny: Oh, my gosh. It was your mother. You're just covering for her.
Destiny: Just like Nate did for his mom.
Matthew: Yeah, and he could've gone to prison because of me. But I'm lucky the charges were dropped before that happened. What if he had been convicted or sentenced? Would I have come forward? I don't know. What kind of person am I? I shot somebody. I killed someone. And would I have come forward? Would I have let my parents put Nate away? I can't sleep. I can't eat.
Destiny: Gosh. You really shot him.
Brody: Can I speak to Dr. Levin?
Tess: You're wasting your time. I'm not going to St. Ann's.
Ford: I signed the commitment papers.
Tess: Isn't that nice for you? I have some papers of my own.
Brody: Yeah, I'll hold. Tess, pack up your stuff. You're gonna go to St. Ann's. We're gonna get Jessica back.
Tess: Is that what you want? You want Jessica back?
Ford: It's what needs to happen. I've made my decision.
Cutter: It's not really your decision to make.
Ford: I'm her husband.
Tess: Aaaa! Guess again.
Ford: What's that?
Brody: Just give me his voicemail, please.
Cutter: Your marriage has been annulled, Robert Ford.
Tess: I am now officially not Mrs. Robert Ford.
Starr: My dad is actually married to a lawyer, and not just a lawyer. A brilliant one.
James: Yeah. She's really good. She defended Nate when he was up on murder charges, and she got him off in no time.
Starr: Knowing Téa, when she finds out that you are looking for your mom, I'm sure she'd love to take the case pro bono.
Deanna: The thing is, this lawyer in Dayton is the only person who's got the information I need, and he won't give it to me until I pay him.
James: Yeah. Well, plus Téa's probably got her hands full with your dad still being in the hospital and her brother being questioned about the shooting.
Deanna: Mm. So I don't think it'll work. But thanks.
[Cell phone ringing]
Deanna: Hello? This is Deanna.
James: That Téa thing was a really good idea.
Starr: Then why'd you shoot it down?
Bo: You and I don't see the world the same way. Everything that you've done-- paying Eddie Ford to kidnap Nora--I don't know how you live with yourself.
Clint: Well, we won't have to worry about that much longer.
Bo: It's not funny. He almost raped her. He could've killed her. And you've ruined Matthew's life. Whether he comes forward or not, it's never gonna be the same. You used him to take out Eddie Ford.
Clint: If I had wanted Eddie dead, Matthew would've been the last person I would've called.
Bo: But you set it up. Filled his head with all kinds of doubts about his parents, taught him how to lie to us, take the easy way out. You told him that I cheated on his mother. Now, what was that, Clint? Was it revenge? I took Nora so you're gonna take Matthew?
Bo: Here. I'm gonna get a doctor.
Bo: We're not gonna talk about this again.
Clint: Why not? What difference does it make? Just get it off your chest.
Bo: What's the point? Eddie Ford is dead, and Matthew is guilty.
Clint: And that's all that's ever mattered to you.
Bo: It matters, Clint. Right and wrong. Yes. It matters to me. It matters to anyone in this whole town, anyone in the world that's decent.
Clint: I'm glad that you're gonna be here to put the world right when I'm gone.
Bo: You know what? When I found out you were in the hospital, I didn't even tell my family. Because what was I gonna say? The man that ruined our life had a heart attack? Do you even have a heart? I didn't want to come here. All I want to do now is just focus on Nora and Matthew.
Clint: Why did you come here?
Bo: Because Nora said that I should. Because you are my brother. And what that means, I don't even know anymore. Do you?
Echo's voice: Clint, I want your silence.
Echo's voice: Charlie believes that you tricked both of us into thinking Rex was his son, and I want it to stay that way.
Echo: How could you do this to me?
Charlie: What about me? What about what you did to me?
Echo: You can't listen to that, Charlie.
Charlie: This is your voice.
Echo: I was tricked. I didn't know he was recording me.
Charlie: But you said it. You admitted that you knew that Rex wasn't my son.
Echo: I can explain, Charlie. I can. Just please give me a chance.
Ford: No, no, no. This can't be legal.
Tess: Oh, it's very legal.
Cutter: I've got a great attorney.
Tess: And since our marriage was never consummated--thank God.
Cutter: And since you committed fraud. You married Jessica Brennan, but Jessica Brennan was AWOL.
Tess: All we had to do was dot a few I's, cross a few T's. Hey. You said the marriage was over. I just made it official.
Brody: Cutter, you just did us a huge favor. If Jessica isn't married, the power of attorney reverts back to Viki and Clint, and I know they want her in St. Ann's.
Tess: Oh, pop the brakes there, cowboy. I wouldn't call Viki or the Clintster right quite yet. They don't have any power over me.
Ford: Yeah, they do--you don't have a husband.
Cutter: Ah! Oh! Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. Cutter Wentworth.
Brody: What the hell?
Tess: Oh, it's ok. I'll explain it to you and I'll use really small words. I ended my marriage with Ford, and now I'm married to Cutter. No hard feelings, big guy, ok? I had to recycle the ring. I hope you don't mind.
Ford: So how is this marriage any less of a fraud than ours?
Cutter: Like I said, I've got a really good attorney.
Brody: I know why Ford married Tess. He wanted custody of Ryder. What are you getting out of this?
Cutter: Why did I marry her? I love her.
James: Look, I know how hard this is. If Cole were crashing with you, I would be going out of my mind.
Starr: You would?
James: Definitely. Come here.
Deanna: That was that Italian place around the corner? They're hiring, and they want to see me right away.
James: That's great. See, I told you they'd call you back.
Deanna: Wish me luck.
James: You'll do great.
[Door opens and closes]
James: Well, at least she's trying. Starr, come on. I promise-- she's not gonna be a problem, ok?
Starr: She already is.
Dorian: Oh, I'm going to have to get back to you. Bye-bye. Viki, please. Do tell me that you played the tape for Charlie before Echo got to him.
Viki: Yes. He heard it. Dorian, it gave me no pleasure to see him hurt.
Dorian: Oh, come on. After everything that man has done to you?
Viki: I did quite enjoy the look on Echo's face.
Dorian: Oh, good. There, you see? You are human.
Echo: Charlie-- [Sniffles] I swear to you on my life that I never meant to lie to you. When I first came to town, I was thrilled to see you. I'd never stopped loving you. You're the kindest, warmest man I have ever known, but you were with Viki and I wasn't gonna do that again. I just wasn't. And then I went to Clint, and I told Clint about how we conceived a son all those years ago. But he knew. He already knew that Rex was his son. He didn't want him. Can you believe that? He didn't want his own son. He didn't even put out a hand to help Rex. He watched Rex struggle and he wouldn't help him, because he didn't want him. Clint Buchanan is the most vile, cruel human being, manipulative man I have ever known, and I did not want him in our lives, Charlie. And then I went to Téa and Todd's wedding reception that night, and I was gonna go to Rex, and I was gonna tell him the truth, but Clint stopped me and he threatened me. He said that Rex would be arrested for breaking and entering, for corporate espionage, that Rex would go to prison if I breathed one word to him about Clint being his father. So what was I supposed to do? I didn't have a choice. I-- I had to say that you were his father. Oh, God, please believe me. God help me, I wanted it to be true because you were the father I wanted him to have. The most wonderful, kind man. So you have to understand, Charlie. You have to understand. He's my son, and I would do anything for him, just like you, because that's the kind of man you are. You'd do anything for your son, right?
Charlie: I don't have a son.
Echo: Charlie, I'm so sorry. I should've told you a long time ago the truth. I should've, but I was scared. And you were so happy, and Rex was so happy, and Shane was thrilled. I know that it's not an excuse. I know that it's not, but I'll do anything. Charlie, please. I will. I'll do anything. I'll go to counseling. I'll work the ninth step. Whatever you want. Just please, please, please, please forgive me. Please, Charlie.
Clint: The trouble with you is you see the world in black and white. You're good, you're bad. When the truth is, people are a little bit of both. But in your world, if you're not perfect, out you go.
Bo: Perfect? I'm not looking for perfect. Perfect is something you strive for if you're a good person. But you, you're always headed the other way.
Clint: Who protected Matthew?
Bo: Well, who set him up?
Clint: Like I said, not perfect.
Bo: Fine. You win.
Bo: No, you can't keep making the same mistakes, Clint, over and over, and then turn around and ask for forgiveness.
Clint: I'm not asking for your forgiveness.
Bo: That's good, because maybe you've learned something. This is not what I wanted, Clint. You in a hospital. Us going at each other's necks. I wanted a brother I could trust. One I could depend on.
Clint: I could say the same thing. Bo, you and I are different. Maybe we just ought to leave it at that.
Bo: Good-bye, Clint.
Clint: Bo...I need a favor.
Starr: We never have any privacy, and now with Deanna here, we can't even kiss without her walking in on us. And our relationship is so new. We haven't even had a real-- a real date yet. Think about it--our whole relationship has been about taking care of other people, and the only night that we ever spent alone together was at the cabin with Dani and Nate. Yes, we have gone to the Buenos Días for coffee. What about a movie? Or dinner? How are going to do any of those things with Deanna here?
James: She's not here now. Come here.
Starr: Ha ha!
Dorian: I tried to give you a head start, but you know the way Echo is when she's bound and determined.
Viki: Yes, I can imagine.
Dorian: So you were there when she arrived?
Viki: Yes. Just barely. I left before the fireworks started.
Dorian: He's going to want to come back. He's gonna realize what a fool he's been.
Viki: I'm sorry, what?
Dorian: Charlie. He's going to want to come back to you. Surely you realize that.
Echo: Please say you'll forgive me, Chuckles.
Charlie: Don't call me that.
Echo: I know. I know. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Charlie: You used me. Hmm? You used our past. What we ever meant to each other. You used me.
Charlie: The fact that I'd lost a son, that I'd lost my sanity to alcohol. Man, you were good. You just wormed your way right into my life.
Echo: It wasn't like that.
Charlie: It was exactly like that! I came to you when I found out the truth--the night of the wedding that didn't happen. When I found out that Rex was not my son, that Shane-- after I'd lost both of them, I came to you. I was broken and confused and as low as I have ever been, and I came to you. But it was your fault all along. You set me up. Jeez. How could I be so stupid? Viki warned me. Even Dorian. Everybody. But I trusted you. Why? Because you convinced me that what, you were a drunk just like me, that we understood each other.
Echo: We did...
Charlie: No, no, you read me up and down, but come on. I don't understand the first damn thing about you. How can you lie like that to me, to Rex, to Shane? Do you have any idea what you've done? Rex and I, we forged a real relationship, hmm? His son actually loved me. Now, I'm not claiming to be the world's best grandfather.
Echo: You were a wonderful grandfather.
Charlie: And you took it away from him! Is it any wonder that that poor boy was up on a roof? He's just a kid, Echo! He almost killed himself!
Echo: I'll make it up to him.
Charlie: You can't fix that! It's broken! My marriage is broken! I left my wife for you! I destroyed my marriage to a beautiful, kind, good, loving woman... for you. You're a lying, cheating, manipulative--
Echo: No, you don't mean that.
Charlie: I mean every word of it! You've destroyed me! You have taken everything away from me. My marriage. My son. My grandson. Oh, jeez. You've even taken away any reason I might've had for staying sober.
Echo: Oh, God, Charlie, don't say that.
Charlie: Don't even pretend like you give a damn about that. You used my illness, my addiction, to just rope me in. When I think of all the meetings that you went--oh, do you even have a drinking problem? I mean, sure, I know you have all kinds of ethical problems. You're morally bankrupt.
Echo: No. No, I was stuck...
Charlie: Well, I was stupid!
Echo: No, don't say that, Charlie. Don't say that. We love each other. I love you. You love me.
Charlie: That's-- that's not...love.
Echo: We're damaged. Charlie, we're damaged people, both of us. We're damaged, but we've made mistakes. We've made all kinds of mistakes in our lives, but--but you can't say that we don't love each other. I mean, I know things are bad right now, but if you just-- if you just forgive me--
Charlie: That's never gonna happen. Because this-- whatever this is, ok, whatever you want to call it, this is over, ok? I-- I never want to see you again.
Matthew: It's over for me.
Destiny: Don't say that. There's always another chance.
Matthew: Not when you kill someone and don't pay for it.
Destiny: It's not your fault. You had just seen your dad with Nate's mom, and Eddie was trashing your mother. It was too much, so you snapped.
Matthew: Yeah, but then I didn't have the courage to tell my own parents. Or anybody. I'm a coward.
Destiny: You're a kid. You were scared.
Matthew: Look, please don't make excuses for me, all right? I've already done that enough and it's starting to make me feel pathetic.
Destiny: Do your parents know?
Matthew: They just found out. I mean...just the way my mom looks at me now. It's like she's broken. And my dad, he's the police commissioner. My mom is the D.A. Their lives revolve around the law. And their son's a murderer.
Destiny: You're not a murderer. You didn't want to kill anyone. Look, maybe Eddie wasn't threatening you, but you were provoked.
Matthew: You should go to law school. You'd be a hell of a lawyer.
Destiny: Does anybody else know?
Matthew: Just my parents and you.
Destiny: So you had to live with this all by yourself? No wonder you were so shut down. Why didn't you tell me?
Matthew: I couldn't do that to you, Destiny.
Destiny: Matthew, we're friends. I'd do anything for you. Don't you trust me?
Matthew: You're the only person I trust.
Destiny: I won't tell anyone.
Matthew: I know.
Destiny: I'm just so sorry you had to go through this alone. But I'm here now, and I'll never leave you.
Bo: You're asking me for a favor?
Clint: It's not for me. It's for the family. They don't know that I'm dying, and I'd like to keep it that way.
Bo: They'll notice when you don't leave the hospital.
Clint: In time. But for right now, let's just keep it to ourselves. They got enough going on. They don't need to be coming over here and carrying on. Besides, there's nothing that they could do. And I've already caused them enough pain. So let's just keep this between ourselves.
Bo: That's the first time I've heard you worry about somebody else in a long, long time. It's too bad it's too late.
Brody: You have no idea what you're dealing with, Cutter. Tess--Jessica--has a very serious mental illness, and if she doesn't get treatment... I'm not giving up on you, Jessica. I will find a way to get you back.
Tess: Get over it, bonehead. She's not coming back.
Cutter: So if you guys will excuse us, my wife and I have some celebrating to do.
Brody: If I weren't a cop, I would lay you out.
Ford: Please. Allow me.
Echo: Oh, no. Charlie, no. No, don't. We can get past this!
Charlie: I don't want any part of you.
Echo: You love me. I love you. Please. I'm so sorry.
Charlie: Echo...you are the biggest mistake I ever made.
Echo: [Indistinct] Charlie! [Indistinct] Charlie!
Viki: Reconcile with Charlie? I haven't even thought about that.
Dorian: Oh, come on.
Viki: No, really. I haven't. Dorian, I heard that tape, and I got so angry. I really just wanted Charlie to know that Echo has been lying to him all along. And I don't know. I didn't think past that.
Dorian: It's obvious. He's going to want to come home with his tail between his legs. The question is, do you want him?
Viki: I don't know. I love him. I mean, I married him. But you know, if he's willing to turn to Echo and have an affair and lie to me about it, there was obviously something very wrong in that marriage.
Dorian: There's something wrong in every marriage. Even mine. David is in L.A., and I'm here, and oh, it's terrible.
Viki: But it is so easily fixed. Charlie and me, I don't-- I don't think it can be fixed.
Dorian: Viki? So that's it? It's over? He's out of your life?
Viki: Ha! If only it were that easy. You do realize that we have a very big problem.
Dorian: We do? Oh, Echo.
Viki: Yes. Echo. I'm afraid we have made a very dangerous enemy.
Dorian: Well, we've won the first round, and if I were a betting woman, and I am, I'd be putting money on the two of us.
Echo: This is your fault, Dorian. And yours, too, Victoria. And so help me, I'll make you pay.
Clint: So you'll keep this between us?
Bo: I'm not keeping secrets from my wife.
Clint: I understand that. But don't tell the kids and don't tell Viki.
Bo: They deserve to know, too. But I'll leave that to you. This is not what I wanted for you, Clint. To die all alone.
Clint: But it's what I deserve, right? Well. Bo, I guess you win after all.
Destiny: I'm sorry. This is just like the last time. One of us was upset, and I kissed you. I can't be doing that. I should go.
Matthew: I thought you said you weren't gonna leave me.
Destiny: I'm not. I'll always be your friend. You know that.
Matthew: Then stay.
Cutter: Arrest him. Oh, he just assaulted me.
Brody: I didn't see anything.
Tess: Boys. Boys! If we can't play nice, I'm gonna have to ask you to leave. But if you guys want to get us a gift, we're registered at Logan's. Cutter there wants a Z-box. I'd like an espresso machine. Ok? Scoot! Get out. Out!
Ford: Can you believe she married that guy?
Brody: We'll see about that.
Ford: Whatever you're planning, I'm in.
Brody: Yeah? Why is that, Ford? I love Jessica. I want her back. You never had anything real with Tess. You were just using her.
Cutter: Ahh. Could you get me some ice, Mrs. Wentworth?
Tess: But of course, Mr. Wentworth. We did it.
Cutter: Yeah, we did. You got your freedom.
Tess: And you're gonna get your half of the Buchanan fortune. So are you gonna break the news to your sister... or should I?
On the next "One Life to Live"...
Starr: Where are you going?
Jack: It's not my fault the kid's a psycho.
Shane: Because I'm never going back to school again.
Marty: You won't come between us.
John: Just wanted to know why the CIA's so interested in you.
Téa: Who are you?
