Dani: Sure I do. I'm going to kill you, just like you killed my father.

Todd: All right, just listen to me--

Dani: Just shut up! I don't want to hear anything you have to say, you bastard.

Todd: I know that you're scared.

Dani: Don't come near me.

Todd: How'd you get that gun, anyway?

Dani: It was easy. It'll be even easier to pull the trigger.

Elijah: So, since Danielle's out having fun with Matthew tonight, why don't you at least try to have a little fun yourself?

Téa: Oh ho ho ho. You're sweet to try to cheer me up, but fun? My guess is the mayor's ball's gonna be about as fun as watching paint dry. Let's go.

Dorian: I'm serious. Bo, you're fired.

Nora: Dorian, you can't do that.

Dorian: Oh, but I have to. Commissioner Buchanan, I insist you hand over your badge right now.

Destiny: I mean it, Matthew, I love you. I'm, like, really into you.

Matthew: But, I mean, I thought we were friends.

Destiny: We are. And I just figured after everything we've been through, we could kind of, you know, level up, be more like boyfriend and girlfriend.

Shaun: Where's your girl?

Markko: Uh, checking in with Dorian.

Langston: Ford, I thought you went back to L.A.

Ford: I did, but now I'm back in P.A.

Langston: I can't believe it. Your ears must have been burning. I was just talking about you.

Ford: Missed me that bad, huh?

Langston: Full of yourself much?

Ford: No, no, just hopeful. To be honest, I've been thinking a lot about you.

Stacy: Oliver, how long have you been here?

Oliver: Um, I just got here.

Stacy: Oh, so you didn't hear...

Oliver: Hear what?

Stacy: Yeah, I was sort of singing the words to the last song, and I can't carry a tune to save my life.

Oliver: Okay. Not worry, I didn't hear a thing.

Stacy: Whew. Boy, that was close. If Fish found out you were his baby instead of Rex's, we'd both be sunk.

Rex: Officer Fish, glad you called ahead. I set those seats up for you and your guy tonight.

Oliver: You know what, give them to someone else. Kyle made other plans.

Kyle: What are you doing?

Nick: What does it look like I'm doing?

Kyle: Dude, Nick! I'm with Oliver now.

Nick: And Oliver's not here.

Rex: The hospital dragged him in last minute?

Oliver: Ha! No. No, Kyle could have been here with me tonight, but he chose to be with someone else.

Rex: Buddy, I know how you feel.

Schuyler: You want me to stay the night?

Gigi: I'm pretty sure that's what I said.

Schuyler: Are you asking me because you know I have no place else to stay or...or...

Todd: Look, I know that you hate me, but you really don't want to do this.

Dani: Don't tell me what I want.

Blair: No, Dani, don't.

Dani: He killed my father. Why should he get to live?

Blair: Because, sweetie, your father isn't dead.

Dani: I saw him shoot my father! Saw my dad fall off the bridge into the water with a bullet in his chest, so how could he possibly be alive?

Todd: Blair... just because they didn't find a body, doesn't mean he survived. Please don't fill the child's head with hope.

Dani: You took any hope I ever had when you murdered my dad!

Todd: Danielle, I don't blame you for wanting me dead. Somebody took away someone I loved, I'd feel the same way you do. I would never forgive them.

Dani: What's this? Reverse psychology?

Todd: I have done this. I've tried to get back at people who have hurt me. But believe me, the only one you end up hurting is yourself.

Dani: Don't move!

Elijah: What was that you were saying about this party being dull?

Dorian: Bo, I still don't have that badge.

Nora: Oh, this is ridiculous, Dorian. He's not going to hand over his badge. Don't hand over your badge.

Dorian: Fine, he can hand it over tomorrow morning to Internal Affairs. Let this serve notice to all of those working under me-- I intend to run a squeaky clean administration. And if the police commissioner shows such appalling personal judgment that he has an affair with the district attorney, who happens to be married to his brother, then how can he be trusted with official police business?

Bo: This is not the time or place.

Reporter: Commissioner Buchanan, are these allegations true?

Second Reporter: Are you having an affair with your brother's wife?

Bo: I said no comment.

Reporter: Mr. Buchanan, do you think your brother should be fired because of his affair with your wife?

Clint: Well, all I can say is, actions have consequences.

Shaun: Langston, is everything okay over here?

Langston: Yeah, I'm fine. Ford's just a friend.

Shaun: A friend who knows and respects the fact that she has a boyfriend.

Langston: I'm fine, really, it's all good. We're just catching up. [Chuckles] Dorian just got elected mayor, and she's a little paranoid about the family's safety. She thinks we don't know.

Ford: That's a drag, huh?

Langston: Hmm, sort of. So what brings you back to Llanview?

Markko: Yeah, I'd like to know that myself.

Matthew: I don't know what to say.

Destiny: Neither did I. That's why I kept my mouth shut this whole time.

Matthew: Really?

Destiny: I wanted to tell you, but something always got in the way. This is the first time and it's probably not the right time. But I mean, you're here, you're walking. We danced. And I just didn't want to start the new year without telling you how I felt about you, without knowing how you felt about me.

Nick: We had something really good together, Kyle. We clicked.

Kyle: We've been over this, Nick. Okay? I'm in a relationship with Oliver. I love him.

Nick: You love him? Well, I'm saying that you can have me. Oliver doesn't have to know.

Kyle: Was he right about you all along? Were you lying to me so you could stay here?

Nick: No, no, look. Oliver's just jealous. I needed help, you stepped up, and he just can't handle it.

Kyle: So you didn't know anything about another room being available here?

Nick: Of course not!

Kyle: Do you swear, Nick?

Nick: I could never do something like that!

Kyle: Use what happened to you to get back with me? No, you couldn't.

Nick: Let's just forget this thing ever happened, okay? Just, things have gotten so stirred up for me. You've been so good to me ever since I was bashed, and... you were there for me when I needed somebody. And if you want me to move to that guy Joplin's old room, I'm more--

Kyle: No. You mean Schuyler's room?

Nick: Yes. The room that Roxy just--

Kyle: Roxy never told us whose room it was.

Nick: Sure she did.

Kyle: No, she didn't, Nick! You were the one she talked to when she called here, right? She thinks she talked to me because you lied.

Nick: No, no, Kyle--

Kyle: What else have you been lying to me about, Nick? That you had nowhere else to go, that you couldn't stay with Amelia?

Nick: No, that's true!

Kyle: Okay.

Nick: What are you doing? Kyle, what are you doing?

Kyle: Amelia?

Nick: Kyle, please. Please. Please.

Kyle: Oliver was right about you all along.

[Nick crying]

Rex: Tonight any guys who are not with the person they are supposed to be with drink on the house.

Oliver: Thank you, but I should probably take it easy. The last time I felt like crap and tied one on, I ended up doing something really stupid.

Stacy: Tonight, we're going to do what a man and woman are supposed to do.

Stacy: [Gasps] Are you kidding me?

Shaun: Not again! I was just standing here.

Stacy: You are so lucky that's just club soda.

Shaun: How far along are you?

Stacy: That's none of your business!

Shaun: I'm all for the miracle of life. But you bringing those hormones into a bar and you start acting up? You are fixin' to get slapped! I would hate to see you get into a catfight in your condition.

Stacy: Oh, yeah, I'm really worried. My baby's father is right over there.

[Soft music playing]

Schuyler: I need you to be sure about this.

Gigi: Why? You're not?

Schuyler: No, I am. I've waited for this for so long. But the stakes are higher for you, Gigi, and if you're not ready--

Gigi: Shut up. Shut up and make love to me.

Schuyler: You're nervous.

Gigi: No, I'm not. Okay, yes. But not because I don't want... it's just, I've never been with another--

Schuyler: Gigi, it's you and me tonight. Here alone. Whatever that means for you, it means, whatever it doesn't... doesn't matter.

Kyle: I trusted you! I defended you! I let you into my home!

Nick: Because I freaked out! Because one minute, I had this terrific guy. And the next minute I'm alone in the back alley of some bar, getting beaten by thugs for being gay. And I was so scared, Kyle. I was lying there, thinking I don't want to die alone. And then you showed up to the hospital, and you were so great. And all of a sudden, I don't want to die alone turned into I don't want to live alone. I don't want to go asleep alone. I don't want to wake up alone. I don't want to do all the things that... I convinced myself that I couldn't be alone. And you were there, this guy that I love and I trust. It was like I didn't have to be alone. And I--I just didn't count on how much you love Oliver. I'm so sorry, Kyle.

Kyle: I'm sorry, too. I should have made it more clear.

Nick: No, no, you were great.

Kyle: But not to Oliver.

Nick: Yeah. Go. I'll be gone when you get back.

Kyle: Nick, are you sure about that?

Nick: I'll be fine. I'll either take the room down the hall or I'll call Amelia. Go.

Oliver: Hey, man, I'm going to take off.

Rex: Come on, who's throwing a better party than mine, huh?

Oliver: No one, but I'm not really in the party mood. And, you know, staying here watching all these happy people celebrate is only going to make me feel worse.

[Music playing]

Woman: It seems so crazy, this life unwinding, and quiet moments, they seem rare, but when you call my name...

Ford: Hey, man, great to see you. You still trying to break into the biz?

Markko: I'm in the film department at L.U. Just turned in my editing project.

Ford: Yeah? How'd it go?

Markko: Professor was all over it.

Langston: Yeah, it's killer.

Markko: I got picked to be in a special seminar next term. Only eight people got in.

Ford: Yeah? What's the topic?

Markko: Pre to post production for an indie market.

Ford: Great. I guess we'll be seeing a lot of each other, then.

Markko: Why?

Ford: I'm teaching the class.

Matthew: Destiny, I really like you.

Destiny: Like, like? Or just as friends?

Matthew: Des, you're the best friend I've ever had.

Destiny: But you don't like me the way I like you.

Matthew: No.

Destiny: Not the way you like Danielle.

Todd: Do you even know how to use that thing?

Dani: How hard could it be? A moron like you figured it out. Didn't have trouble shooting my dad!

Blair: Dani...he was just trying to save your life.

Dani: My father and I could have made it!

Blair: You know that that's not true. You were scared to death. That water was freezing. And if Ross had made you jump, you would have died. And if you pull that trigger right now, sweetie, you'll be throwing your life away. Listen to me. I know what it's like to feel alone. I grew up without a mother and a father, and I had feelings that I thought nobody understood and that wouldn't go away. But I'm promising you right now... your life's going to get better, it is.

Dani: How can you promise me anything? You don't know anything about me!

Todd: Just give me the gun.

Blair: Come on, Dani.

Todd: It's okay.

Blair: You're not a killer. You're just really, really sad.

Dani: I really love my dad.

Blair: Oh... it's all right, it's okay. It's okay. It's okay.

Reporter: Mayor Lord, who do you have in mind to replace Commissioner Buchanan?

Dorian: I have just made the very difficult decision to replace Commissioner Buchanan, so I have not come up with a successor yet, but I can assure you that the vetting process will be thorough, and that's all I have to say on the matter. Uh, except to add have a very Happy and Healthy New Year, everyone, and enjoy what is left of the party.

[Indistinct chatter]

Nora: Dorian had no right to do this to you.

Bo: When did she ever care about right or wrong? Come on, let's get out of here. We can't do anything about it tonight.

Nora: Oh, I beg to differ. I really need to talk to the two of you.

Téa: Whatever you need, just name it. I owe you.

Elijah: Yeah, me, too.

Nora: Thank you. Okay. This is a clear cut case of wrongful termination, and obviously I can't do anything about it. Will the two of you look into this?

Téa: Yes, we will do what we can.

[Cell phone rings]

Téa: Oh, excuse me. Oh, one second, please.



Téa: Todd?

Todd: Hey, it's me. I need you. It's about Dani.

Matthew: I don't like Dani that way. I don't like anyone like that right now.

Destiny: Dani got to help you take your first steps in the sneakers I gave you.

Matthew: You've been amazing. All right, I don't know what I would have done without you these past few months. You really are the best friend I've ever had. I just don't want to lose that.

Destiny: You want everything! Just like your sister. You strung me along the same way Rachel did with Shaun, until someone prettier and skinnier came along.

Matthew: Hey, that's not true.

Destiny: Isn't it? Go be with Dani, run to her now that you can.

Matthew: Des...

Shaun: Des, Des, hold up!

Langston: You're going to be Markko's professor?

Ford: Sort of. I'm a T.A. I'm taking some classes, working on my master's. But I'll be running the seminar.

Markko: How--how did this happen?

Ford: Well, the opportunity came up and the timing was right. I'm really stoked. I like teaching kids what I know.

Markko: Kids?

Ford: Beer time. First run's on me? Oh, wait, I'm sorry, you're underage. See you on campus.

Langston: Ha! How great is this? That's so weird. I mean, Ford showing up when we were just talking about him?

Markko: Yeah, wild.

Langston: Oh, don't tell me.

Markko: What?!

Langston: You're threatened.

Kyle: Hey, have you seen Oliver?

Rex: I saw him earlier, but he left.

[Kyle sighs]

[Music playing]

Woman: Lost without you, in the midst of a stolen moment, the world goes on as we stand still together

Dorian: You'll get a complete statement at my next press conference.

Nora: I'm going to talk to Dorian.

Bo: Oh, come on, Nora...

Clint: Well, I guess you're unemployed again. Last time you got fired, you went back to work at B.E., but that door is now closed, too. I control the board, and we're just not doing any hiring at the moment.

Kimberly: But you could drop off your resume any time. I'll keep it on file.

Bo: All you need are spurs, Clint. Otherwise you're doing everything exactly the way Pa would do it, right down to your young lady friend. So what makes you happy now?

Clint: Not happy. Not fine. I'm great. Kimberly, would you care to dance?

Kimberly: I'd love to.

[Indistinct chatter]


Elijah: We got here as fast as we could.

Téa: Where is she?

Todd: She's in there.

Elijah: As Ross' brother, I just thought I could help.

Todd: Just keep your mouth shut. Get rid of this.

Dani: Mom, I...

Téa: I know everything. All I care about is that you're okay. Are you?

Dani: I miss Daddy. It hurts so bad.

Téa: I know you do, honey.

Dani: I hate that guy Todd. I'll hate him forever. Just don't touch me! How can you stand him? He killed Daddy!

Téa: Things are over between Todd and me. For good.

Dani: I don't believe you.

Téa: I'm not going to see Todd again. I am not going to see him again. Right?

Elijah: I think we should bring Dani home now.

[Door closes]

Langston: Did you see who's here?

Starr: Oh! Who's he?

Langston: Markko's boss from the reality show, Ford.

Starr: He's back?!

Langston: In the flesh. Well, not exactly the flesh. I've seen that, and that's kind of the problem.

Starr: Well, what's he doing here?

[Dance music playing]

Markko: Dude, can I talk to you?

Cole: Sure.

Langston: Ford's moved here. He's teaching at L.U.

Cole: And he's teaching your class?

Markko: Yeah, but not anymore. I'm dropping it.

Cole: Dude, are you nuts? Come on, you worked your butt off to get into that workshop.

Starr: Why is that a problem?

Langston: Markko's jealous. Especially since I was just talking about him.

Starr: And his hot body.

Langston: But I'm not interested in him.

Cole: But she's not interested in the guy. It's not like he's teaching her class.

Markko: What, are you saying I'd be in trouble if he were?

Langston: Okay, maybe Ford is to die for and all that. But Markko's got nothing to worry about.

Markko: How's this for a new year's resolution? I'm hitting the gym every day.

Nora: Why are you doing this, Dorian? Really, is it because Clint left you and started seeing me?

Dorian: Nora, dear, that high horse you're trying to mount just bucked you off.

Nora: No. If you want to hurt me, then fine, go ahead and do it, but don't do this to Bo. Or are you just so hell-bent on revenge, you don't care who you hurt?

Dorian: [Laughs] How can you talk about me hurting Bo? I mean, you cheated on the man when you were married to him. And you stole Clint away from me and then you cheated on him once you were married to him! For goodness sake, your behavior compared to Bo's makes his behavior look angelic. At least he was single. You are very, very lucky that you're an elected official, or else I would have fired you, too. And if you had any decency at all, you'd resign.

Bo: I'll say it again, no comment.

Reporter: DA Buchanan, when did the affair start?

Second Reporter: Was it really the night before you married the commissioner's brother?

Nora: Okay, I have no comment either, except to say this-- this is a democracy, not a monarchy. Dorian Lord is the mayor. She's not the queen. And before she beheads Commissioner Buchanan, she's going to have to answer to wrath of the people of Llanview.

[Dance music playing]

Kyle: Oliver! I thought that you'd already left.

Oliver: Yeah, I did. I forgot my phone. 14 missed calls?

Kyle: Yeah, yeah, those are all from me. You don't have bother checking. They pretty much say the same thing. [Sighs] I'm sorry. Okay, you were right. Nick was using what happened to him to try to get back with me.

Oliver: He admitted it?

Kyle: Not so much. I kind of figured it out. But I was really naive and I was a complete jerk. Okay, I should trust by now that you would never lie to me, and...[Sighs] Will you forgive me?

Oliver: Heh, yeah, you were. You were a total jerk. But if you've seen the light...

Kyle: Look, you're it for me. You're the one.

Oliver: You know, I really didn't want us to be apart when the clock struck midnight.

Kyle: Neither did I.

Oliver: So are you going to buy me a drink?

Kyle: I've got a better idea.

Stacy: I'm sorry to see you so sad. No one should spend New Year’s alone.

Rex: We both are.

Stacy: Speak for yourself, I've got company. I made a New Year's resolution. Want to hear it?

Rex: Why not?

Stacy: I'm going to be a better person. Go with it, don't laugh at me, okay? Up until now, I know I've screwed up big time. But, you know, everything's always been about me and to hell with everybody else. But now I've got somebody more important. Somebody to depend on me for everything. Somebody expecting me to do the right thing. So that's what I'm going to do.

Rex: Wish I could believe that.

Stacy: Yeah, I don't really expect you to. At least not right away. But you'll wait and see. People change. You did, right? It's possible to wake up one morning and just realize that everything you believed and thought was wrong. It's possible to start over.

Schuyler: You okay?

Gigi: I'm...amazing.

Schuyler: I love you. No, you don't have to say it back. I don't expect that. Not now. I just... I didn't want this year to end without you knowing this is the happiest night of my life.

[Gigi sighs]

Blair: You all right?

Todd: Oh, I'm great. The daughter I never knew I had wants me dead.

Blair: Well, that's why I thought it might be a good idea, you know, if she knew the truth about who you really were.

Todd: I don't think she's ready. And now that Téa wants nothing to do with me, she may never be ready.

Blair: Come on, Todd. Téa still loves you.

Todd: Maybe, but she was right. She needs to shut me out. Dani needs her mom right now.

Blair: Well, and someday she's going to need her father, too.

Nora: Well, what more could happen today?

Bo: Huh.

Nora: Elijah!

Elijah: Hey.

Nora: What are you doing here?

Elijah: I was actually just looking for the two of you, as a matter of fact. Are you available tomorrow, noonish? We meet up and discuss what we might do about your situation?

Nora: Yeah, see you then.

Elijah: Terrific. Good night.

Bo: Good night.

[Elijah exhales]

[Knock on door]

Téa: I'll be right back, sweetie, okay?


Elijah: It's done. The gun is back and Bo is safe. No one's ever going to need to find out about this.

Téa: Thanks, Eli.

Elijah: Well, is there anything else I can do for you?

Téa: Um, no. I need to spend some time with Dani.

Elijah: Oh. Sure, no, I understand.

Téa: Okay.

Elijah: Well, Happy New Year.

Téa: Thank you, Eli.


Bo: Thank you for sticking up for me tonight.

Nora: Dorian does not get the last word on who you are or what you have done for this community.

Bo: I just hated to hear all that garbage she was spewing about you.

Nora: I'm so sorry, Bo. I have cost you your brother and now your job.

Bo: Well, I love my brother. And I love my job. But the only two things that really matter to me are you and Matthew. And if I have you two, I can handle anything.

Nora: Back at ya.

Bo: Ah.

Nora: Um...

Bo: Hmm?

Nora: I should probably go back to my room now.

Bo: Why?

Nora: Hmm...

Bo: Hey, we don't have to be discrete anymore, and it's almost New Year’s. So...want to ring in the New Year together? Hmm?

Kimberly: How are you holding up?

Clint: Oh, I'm fine. I want to thank you for all your help.

Kimberly: That's what executive assistants are for.

Clint: Oh, you've gone above and beyond the definition of executive assistant.

Kimberly: I don't mind going above and beyond for something I really care about.

Dorian: Mitch, it's done. Bo's out.

[Both laugh]

Oliver: Wow, you sprang for the good stuff.

Kyle: Yeah, Roxy came through with a favor. Thought tonight should be extra special.

Oliver: It will be. I mean, it is.

Kyle: Yeah?

Oliver: It's the date that we never got to have. What, no candles this time?

Shaun: Des, what's going on?

Destiny: I finally told... I told Matthew how I felt about him.

Shaun: Didn't go too well?

Destiny: He just wants to be friends.

Cole: Friends thing? Ouch.

Matthew: Look, I meant it. Destiny is amazing. I just wish I could feel that way about her.

Starr: Matthew, don't be so hard on yourself. You were honest and you did the right thing.

Matthew: But I just lost the best friend I've ever had.

Destiny: It's like you and Rachel. You can't be Rachel's friend and I can't be Matthew's.

Shaun: It's different, Des. Rachel and I never shared the kinds of things that you and Matthew did.

Destiny: So what are you saying?

Shaun: What I'm saying is you're going to have to think long and hard about whether or not you want to throw away this friendship. The ball's in your court.

Rex: Well, it's almost midnight. Better hop to it. Can't disappoint all the happy couples.

Stacy: You're calling this the first night party, right? Don't think of it as an ending. Think of it as a beginning.

Man: Don't leave me here without you near, I need to feel you breathing, your eyelids shut, upon my heart, every moment without you is too long, don't leave me here without you near, I need to feel you breathing, your eyelids shut, upon my heart, every moment without you is too long, ooh, this is my confession, I tried to play it, but I'm making more time of you, ooh, more than a soul connection, I am caught under your spell, ooh, this is my confession, I am caught under your spell I never used to go out without makeup now I can

Rex: Grab your guy, your girl, your noisemaker, your glow stick. Grab a hold of something and hold on. Ten!

Starr: Ah, nine!

Langston: Are you ready?

Markko: Are you sure you wouldn't rather be with the incredible hulk?

Langston: Shut up! Two, one! Happy New Year!

[All cheering]

[Noisemakers and cheering in distance]

Oliver: Is it always going to be like this?

Kyle: [Chuckles] Always.

Dorian: I kept my end of the bargain. Now you keep yours. Stay away from my girls.

Elijah: Happy New Year, Mayor.

Dorian: It will be now.

Clint: Kimberly Andrews, Happy New Year.

Nora: We are starting this new year out with a whole lot of troubles.

Bo: And there's no one in the world that I would rather be starting it with.

[Music and fireworks in distance]


Woman: My trusty friend, give me a hand of mine, and we will take a hearty drink for all the times gone by, for all the times gone by, my dear, for auld lang syne, we'll take a cup of kindness yet for auld lang syne, we'll taka cup of kindness yet for all the times gone by
