One Life to Live Update Friday 6/22/01
Gabriella is in very skimpy clothing in the front room. She hears Max coming and rushes to throw water over herself, to make it look like she is really sweating up a storm. Then she drapes herself across the coffee table (of all places) and fans herself with a magazine. Max comes in, a little startled by what he finds. He stutters around a bit asking if she has seen Nigel. Gabby pours some lemonade for herself. Max complains that the house is 95 degrees. Gabby explains that she is trying to make up to Asa for spending so much on clothes by turning off the A/C during the day. Asa is gone for the day, and she let all the staff have the day off. She is trying to be a better wife. She is taking all kinds of sexy poses for Max's pleasure. She suggests they take the chance to get to get a little closer, as she drapes herself behind him on the back of the couch. Max quickly gets off the couch and says that he is turning on the A/C. He tells Gabby she has to learn to stand up to Asa. She pretends to be listening to his advice. She reminds Max of a time in the past when she stayed in his penthouse with him, and they didn't have A/C then either.
They both say they never forgot that neck. Gabby asks what if they hadn't broken up. Where would they be now. Has Max ever wondered about that?
Kelly is trying to get Roseanne out of the house. Andrew comes in and asks if there is a problem. Roseanne begs Andrew to help her out in convincing Kelly to hear her out. Roseanne continues pretending to just wanting to apologize, and that she is changing. Andrew does talk Kelly into hearing Roseanne out. Kelly and Andrew go to the other room, Roseanne kisses her little bottle of love potion and follows them. They sit down in the front room. Kelly is having nothing of all this 'repenting' Roseanne is doing. They talk of Sophia, her recovery is not going well. Roseanne stumbles thru an apology. They hear more rumblings from upstairs. Kelly tells her it is time for her to leave. She pretends to almost cry. It took a lot for her to come here today to apologize. Andrew is confused, he is not sure exactly what Roseanne has done. Kelly tells him very quickly. Roseanne still begs for Andrew to help her talk Kelly into talking to her. Roseanne asks for something to drink. Kelly says she has a fresh pot of coffee. Roseanne is not sure the potion will work in a hot drink, so while Andrew and Kelly are out getting the coffee, she calls Sonora and asks her about it. Starr is listening in the background. Starr over hears the whole conversation about how the love potion will work. Starr is getting ideas in her little head. Kelly, Andrew, and Roseanne are sitting around the coffee table sipping on the coffee. Kelly accepts her apology and tries again to call the meeting to an end. Roseanne looks around and comments on the beautiful surroundings. She asks them to look on the bottom of a vase to find out if it is Chinese. While they are looking, she tries to open the vial of love potion with Starr watching from the hall. She spills the potion all over her shirt, when Kelly asks what happened, she quickly grabs the cup of coffee and spills it on her, yells at Kelly for ruining things again and storms out. Andrew and Kelly are amused and confused. Kelly and Andrew leave the room. Starr enters and picks up the phone and pushes redial. She asks if this is the 'love potion lady', and tells her she wants to buy some of that love potion.
Cristian asks Jen who it is that killed Colin. Jen chickens out, and again claims to know nothing. Chris continues to try to convince her that she will feel so much better if she gets this off her chest. Jenn tells Chris that her mother will be back soon, she wants him to leave. He won't go, he wants to help her. They hear a key in the lock, Jenn panics and thinks it is her mom, she wants Chris to hide. It is part of the motel staff bringing in shopping bags that Lindsay had sent back to the motel. The staff person leaves, and Jen realizes she doesn't have on the necklace that she made out of the stone Chris gave her at the quarry. Chris suggests they look for it. Jenn, without looking anywhere but Cristians face, says she can't find it. Chris finds it by the door. It broke the rock into when it hit that hard carpet floor.
Jenn gets upset, she wears that for good luck. She thinks the stone represents them, they will break up because she won't tell Cristian who killed Colin. Chris reassures her. Cristian still tries to convince her to come back to Llanview with him, they will face it together.
In the courtroom, Will is being sworn in and hesitates a bit when they ask him if he swears to tell the whole truth. He sees RJ walk in to the courtroom, looks at Sam for a bit, and finally says I do. Hank ask Will if he recognizes the boots. Will says he does, that they were found in his closet by the police, but they are not his boots. When Hank asks him if they are his fathers boots, Will says he doesn't know. Then Hank pulls out a picture and asks Will if he knows the two people in the picture. Nora objects, she knew nothing about this photograph. Hank asks for the photo to be placed as evidence, the judge allows it and tells Will to answer. (Guess Llanview court system hasn't heard of 'discovery'). Will says it is a photo of him and Sam in a park with a dog. Hank then pulls out an enhanced portion of that photograph. It is of Sam's feet in the original photo, with the boots on. Will still tries to deny recognizing the boots. Finally he agrees that they look like the boots in the picture. Hank gives the photos to the jurors, and has no more questions. Nora starts to get up, Sam tells her he doesn't want her questioning Will. Nora gets up to question him anyway. She reminds will that they are very close, and almost related. She is going to be asking him some pretty tough questions and she wants the truth. Will says he will try. Al and Jess are watching in the courtroom Al asks if she is doing okay, she tells him that she feels like she is on trial with Will. Nora asks where he was between 10:00 and 10:30 on the night in question. He doesn't remember. A man walks into the courtroom and stands next to the guard in the back. Nora wants to know if Will recognizes him, Will says no. Nora says that the man is willing to testify that he remembers Will coming to the docks that night and trying to hire someone to hurt Colin. Murmurs erupt in the courtroom. Will finally does say that he was at the docks and did try to hire someone to 'rough up' Colin. He says they beat him up for asking. Nora suggests that it was Will that went to Colin's house and killed him. Sam is livid, he yells, Hank yells. The judge brings order to the courtroom. Nora is badgering Will. She wants him to admit that he was at Colin's house. Sam erupts yelling to leave his son alone, he is the one that killed Colin. The judge brings order again, and asks Sam if he wants to again change his plea to not guilty. Nora quickly asks for a few minutes to confer with her client. Al asks Jess why she isn't surprised, does she think Will did do it. RJ comes up to rib his brother about the case. Hank assures him he will get to the truth. Sam and Nora argue heatedly. Ben interrupts to ask where Nora got that information, Sam tells him not to worry about that now, to go find Lindsay and bring her here immediately. Ben leaves to find Lindsay. Sam then turns to Nora and tells her that if she wants him to leave his plea at not guilty, to leave
Will out of it. Nora informs the judge that the plea stands at not guilty. She starts to do as Sam asked her, but changes her mind, and asks Will where he got Colin's passport. Jess is shocked that she knows about the passport. Will looks accusingly at Jess. Jess shakes her head no at him. He says he did have Colin's passport. Nora wants to know how he got it. Cristian and Jen walk into the courtroom and Jen announces that Will got the passport from her. Murmurs erupt again, Sam turns and looks surprised at Jenn.
