All My Children Transcript Monday 8/20/01

Edmund: No doubt about it -- ER nurse has the hardest job in the hospital.

Nurse: Yeah, sometimes it seems that way.

Edmund: Yeah. How do you stay positive with all the terrible things you see in a day?

Nurse: Huh. Oh, it's --

Edmund: Like this kid Marcus. You just -- you took care of him when he checked in, didn't you?

Nurse: Oh, yeah, the young man in a coma.

Edmund: Yeah.

Nurse: Very sad.

Edmund: Yeah. He's fighting for his life and you're helping him and you've still got to take care of all these mundane housekeeping type things?

Nurse: Oh, how do you mean?

Edmund: Well, like dealing with his personal effects.

Nurse: Oh, that's just, you know, second nature. You gather them, bag them, give them to a family member. It's really --

Edmund: Bag them and tag them, huh? Like his mom in this case?

Nurse: Right, mm-hmm.

Edmund: Yeah. Don't you have a list? Like, you know, you have to write it all down, bureaucracy?

Nurse: Sometimes that goes by the boards.

Edmund: Really?

Nurse: Like last night. We're really busy, it's understaffed. We didn't have time for an inventory. Why are you asking?

Edmund: I was just hoping that -- well, he had a watch that -- it meant a lot to him and I was hoping that -- do you remember if he had it with him?

Nurse: No, sorry. Like I said, we were really busy.

Edmund: Could you think, just for me? Just try to remember -- gold watch, very expensive.

Nurse: Well -- well, I remember -- I mean, I can't be sure, but I think there was a watch.

Edmund: Really? Thank you very much.

Nurse: Sure. Glad to help.

Derek: What do you think you're doing, Edmund?

Edmund: What am I doing? I'm trying to keep Gabriel and Rosa from being put away by the police commissioner and his rich friend.


Rosa: Gabriel, thank God. Are you ok? Did anybody see you?

Gabriel: No, but the guard guys are hanging out around here. Luckily I got what I was going for. Here, take some.

Rosa: Thanks. I can't eat.

Gabriel: No, you've got to eat. We both do.

Rosa: I'm too scared. I've never been this scared in my whole life.

Laura: Leo, I'm going to be what you want. I'm really going to try.

Leo: Laura, you don't have to try. You have to stop worrying all the time. I keep telling you this is what I want. I'm your husband. And -- and that's what I want to be.

Laura: Xiansheng. That's Chinese for "husband."

Leo: How does it go?

Laura: Xiansheng.

Leo: Xian-- Xiansheng? Xiansheng?

Laura: Baby, that's what I'm going to call you now. And "I love you" is wo ai ni. I love you, Leo, more than anything in the whole world.

[Knock on door]

Greenlee: Leo! Leo, open the door! Leo, I want to talk to you! Get your butt out here, Leo, now!


Liza: What did you say?

Marian: I said she's your sister.

Liza: Mother, don't get all philosophical on me. In what way is she my sister?

Marian: Liza, she's your half-sister.

Liza: Are you crazy?

Ryan: Wait a minute. This is why you've been blackmailing Marian.

Liza: Oh, wait a minute. This woman has been blackmailing you?

Marian: No, no, she hasn't been blackmailing me. She --

Liza: What, demanding money from you? Mother, come on, I think I would remember if you'd been pregnant or you suddenly became fat and went on vacation and returned skinny.

Marian: Liza, she's not my daughter. She's your father's child.

Liza: You're lying. Mother, this is crazy. This -- this can't be.

Marian: It's true, Liza. And now I hope you understand why I didn't tell you, because I know how much you worshipped your father.

Liza: Mother, you were the one who got drunk and partied and had affairs. Daddy was home every night! He sat on the edge of the bed with me and he read me stories and tucked me into bed.

Mia: Well, he skipped one night at least.

Liza: Shut up! You stay out of this.

Mia: You know, I don't really know what this is all about. It's not like I asked to be born your poor relation or something.

Liza: You know what? You -- Mother, what is going on here? Did Daddy even say anything about a girl before he died?

Marian: No, but --

Liza: Then how do you even know it's true? If she's blackmailing you, then the whole thing is probably a scam! Mom, she's nobody!

Mia: Yeah, well --

Liza: She wants your money!

Mia: I am not a blackmailer. I just want what's mine.

Liza: You know what? You are not getting a cent out of my mother. No one's buying this scam of yours. Consider yourself lucky you haven't been arrested and go back to where you came from.

[Derek slams phone down]

Derek: Sorry.

Edmund: Hmm?

Derek: Marcus' father is a player in this town. His son is in a coma. Now, it stands to reason that he would pull strings with the police commissioner.

Edmund: You're defending it?

Derek: No. But I am going to do my job no matter what! Come here.

Edmund: Well, that's good because I got some information.

Derek: Oh, you mean from that nurse that you were talking to?

Edmund: Yes, from that nurse. She thinks she saw Marcus' watch.

Derek: But she can't be sure, right?

Edmund: You already asked the nurse?

Derek: I am going to do my job no matter what.

Edmund: Derek, do you think Rosa and Gabriel are guilty?

Derek: You know what, Edmund? It's staring to look that way. The best thing that you can do is try to convince those kids to turn themselves in.

Edmund: Fine. Anna has the guards searching Wildwind, ok?

Derek: Uh-huh. Go home, help her.

Edmund: I'll help more by going here for the truth.

Derek: Oh, please, Edmund, do not for even a minute pretend that you're going to be the objective fact-finder here. Gabriel and Rosa are members of your family.

Edmund: Damn right they are. Now, who else do they have in their corner? Mateo's in jail right now for decking Marcus' father. I'm still trying to get him out. Everything's against these kids.

Derek: Let me tell you something -- if you influence witnesses, you're going to make matters worse.

Edmund: Derek, I'm sorry if I told you how to do your job. Don't make the same mistake.

Derek: Listen to me -- if Rosa and Gabriel are innocent, I am not going to let anything happen to them. That is why you have to convince them to turn themselves in.

Edmund: So the system has a chance to work?

Derek: So some eager cop doesn't find them first and shoot at them! Excuse me.

Edmund: You're a friend of Marcus', right? Must be pretty tough seeing him like that.

Mindy: It's unreal.

Edmund: Would you mind if I talked to you just for a couple minutes? My name is Edmund, I work for "Tempo" magazine and I'd like to hear your views on youth and how they're handling violence today.

Mindy: Oh.

Edmund: Would you mind, please?

Mindy: Ok.

Edmund: Thanks. Um, how do you spell your last name?

Mindy: You mean for the magazine?

[Knock on door]

Greenlee: I'm not going away, Leo. I can do this all night.


Leo: Uh, I'll get rid of her.

Laura: Well, what does she want?


Leo: I don't know.

Greenlee: I'm still here! Can you hear me, Leo? You want me to get louder?

Laura: She's going to bust the door down.


Leo: What the hell are you doing here?

Greenlee: Let me in.

Leo: Yeah, that's going to happen.

Greenlee: Let me in or your neighbors will get an earful.

Laura: Leo, stop this!

Greenlee: Ready for bed, are we? Well, I'm sorry. I'm going to need to borrow your husband for a while, but you'll get him back in one piece -- maybe.

Leo: Greenlee --

Greenlee: I won't let you ruin my life, Leo! If you want to play house with lady Laura --

Leo: Get out!

Greenlee: It's your call, but you don't have any control over me or my life.

Leo: Greenlee, she can't take this.

Greenlee: Oh, I'm not so sure about that. But I'm not here to best her. She can go or she can stay, but we're having this out now!

Leo: Uh, Laura, I -- I think maybe it's best if -- if you leave us alone.

Laura: You're right, Leo. Handle her. I'll go lie down.

Leo: If this wouldn't upset Laura, I would kick your butt out of here so fast, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Like I'm thrilled to be here? But I'm not going to sit and do nothing while you have me shipped out of town.

Leo: I don't know what you're talking about.

Greenlee: Can it, Leo! We both know you got Erica to transfer me to Paris. From Leo to Brooke to Erica? You're not even man enough to do it to my face.

Leo: Oh, beautiful. Erica sends you to Paris and it's my fault? Doesn't it even occur to you that if it were up to me,

Greenlee, that I would have you shipped off to -- I don't know -- Chechnya?

Greenlee: You did it and I know why. Not because I barge into your life, because you can't trust yourself around me because every time you see me, I remind you of what you lost and what you settled for.

Leo: Oh, would you get it through your head -- I'm married! I'm happy! And losing you is like losing botulism.

Greenlee: Huh. I always thought you were honest with yourself, but you really are trying to sell yourself on this "happily married man" bull.

Leo: All right, get out.

Greenlee: Only you can't carry it off and you get that --

Leo: Get out.

Greenlee: Funny way every time you see me.

Leo: Greenlee, shut up! You mean nothing to me anymore, all right -- nothing.

Greenlee: Then why do you need to get rid of me?

Leo: I had nothing to do with that!

Greenlee: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Brooke shows up at Enchantment, two minutes later I'm transferred, and you had nothing to do with it. Well, get this, du Pres -- you are going to fix it. I'm happy, too, for the first time in my life and I'll be damned if I'm going to lose everything that I've worked for because you can't stop wanting me.

Leo: Greenlee, I think that maybe you've got this whole thing backwards. That's what I think the truth is. This whole thing is backwards.

Greenlee: Ah. "The truth." You know, Pal, I think it is time you told me the real truth.

Leo: You want the truth, Greenlee? Ok, I'm going to tell you the truth.

Rosa: Gabriel?

Gabriel: Yeah?

Rosa: I'm really sorry.

Gabriel: About what?

Rosa: That I didn't trust you. I mean, you tried to warn me about Marcus and I just wouldn't listen.

Gabriel: Well, you liked him.

Rosa: But how could I have? I shouldn't have listened to anything that he said.

Gabriel: No --

Rosa: It's just he just lied so well.

Gabriel: No, look, you're a good person and you believed him because you don't lie.

Rosa: But then he turned so completely different. I mean, the things that he said to me -- they were so gross and crude and -- he tried to make me --

Gabriel: Look, no, no, I don't want to know!

Rosa: I'm sorry. You just -- you tried to be a good friend and I should've listened to you. That's all I meant to say.

Gabriel: That time when we were at the boathouse and I tried to kiss you -- I just didn't know. I'm sorry if it totally grossed you out or anything --

Rosa: Gabriel, it wasn't gross.

Gabriel: It wasn't?

Rosa: No. Your -- your kiss was nice. You're not like Marcus everybody is wrong about you, Gabriel. You're supposed to be violent, but you're not about anger, not at all.

Gabriel: I wonder who really attacked Marcus.

Rosa: I don't know. I haven't had time to think about it.

Gabriel: Yeah, me, neither. But who would want to hurt him bad enough to try to kill him?

Rosa: I don't know. I do know that there were five people there that night. There was Marcus, you, me, Shannon, and whoever wanted to hurt Marcus.

Edmund: So Marcus is a soccer star, huh?

Mindy: Oh, yes. He was all-state for the past two years, plus this year he made the nation's high school all-stars.

Edmund: Really? You know, I heard he ran kind of hot, had a bit of a temper.

Mindy: There's no one that he wouldn't go against if he had to.

Edmund: Really?

Mindy: Marcus had more yellow and red cards in his career than any other player in all of Pine Valley High history.

Edmund: A real intimidator, huh?

Mindy: The best. He wrestled varsity until -- until last year, undefeated.

Edmund: And then he quit?

Mindy: I don't know what happened. But he quit wrestling.

Shannon: Mindy, what are you doing?

Marian: Liza? I'm so sorry you had to learn about it like this. Your father had an affair with Mia's mother and they had a child.

Liza: Mother, how do you know? You're just taking her word for it?

Marian: No.

Liza: Mother, I am going to need a pile of evidence to swallow this one.

Ryan: Liza? This isn't the place for this conversation. Why don't the three of you go somewhere quiet and just talk about this?

Liza: You know, when I walked in here, the two of you were awfully cozy. Maybe she's snowed you, but she hasn't snowed me.

Ryan: Liza, I heard about this when you did, but don't you think Marian would've made sure that it was true before she gave Mia some money?

Liza: This is not my father's daughter. Look at her! She doesn't look like my sister! Maybe she looks like her mother. Who knows what kind of low-down, piece of trash she --

Mia: You just watch it. You can say whatever you want about me, but don't you talk about my mother.

Liza: I'm not going to get into a fistfight with you. I wasn't raised that way.

Ryan: This -- this -- this is wrong. All right? This is all wrong. It shouldn't be happening like this. The two of you should be able to talk somehow, find a way to talk. I mean, you've been lied to your whole lives.

Marian: I think this should be done on another day. I think this is just too much information for you to absorb right now. So why don't the three of us get together another time?

Liza: Well, I don't need to hear any more. Not now, not ever. I'm going home.

Marian: Well, is this what you wanted? To hurt my daughter as much as you've been hurt? Well, it looks like you've succeeded.

Ryan: Ahem. Well, you know, Liza's hurting now. She's just going to need a couple days to let her pride get out of the way.

Mia: Yeah, well, I don't really care about Liza's pride.

Edmund: Why shouldn't Mindy talk to me?

Mindy: I'm being interviewed for "Tempo" magazine.

Shannon: How stupid are you? Don't you realize this man is totally tight with the people who hurt Marcus? He's, like, their uncle or something.

Mindy: You didn't say that.

Shannon: He's been going around trying to get kids to diss Marcus so they can -- those criminals can get off.

Mindy: Is that what you were doing?

Edmund: Don't worry. Believe me, you didn't tell me anything that could hurt anybody.

Shannon: Well, what could you say, anyway? You don't know anything.

Mindy: Yes, I do!

Shannon: Why are you even here? Marcus can't stand you.

Mindy: Maybe it's a good thing Marcus doesn't like me.

Shannon: Why don't you just give it up. I mean, you're not going to find anyone to say a mean word about Marcus, and if you do it's because they're jealous. I mean, everybody loves him. Everyone wants to be close to him.

Edmund: As close as you were? I've been talking to your friends. They say you two were a couple.

Shannon: So?

Edmund: Marcus give you that bruise, the one I saw before? I've been asking around.

Shannon: Nobody told you that Marcus did that to me.

Edmund: No, they didn't. Said it was your dad who beat you.

Shannon: Ok, will you just leave me alone?

Edmund: I can't, Shannon. I have a little girl and the idea of a father beating his daughter makes me sick. Let me help you. I'll call the cops. I can get your father arrested. He will never hurt you again.

Shannon: No!

Greenlee: Yes, Leo, be a man. Tell the truth.

Leo: The truth, Greenlee? You're the one who can't leave it alone. You're the one who keeps banging on my door trying to -- trying to screw up my life.

Greenlee: No, I think you did that all on your own.

Leo: No, I think that it's none of your damn business what I do! And I think that this whole performance of yours is pretty pathetic. What -- what happened to Jake? Is he already getting sick of you?

Greenlee: Jake?

Leo: Yeah!

Greenlee: Now I get it. This is jealousy.

Leo: No, this is me trying to think of anything that I can to get you out of my apartment, Greenlee.

Greenlee: You call me pathetic. Do you know what pathetic is? You don't even know how much you need Brooke. You think you've been through this big life change. You just traded one check-writer for another. Say what you want about your marriage to Laura. You're -- you're just getting paid for services rendered.

Leo: Greenlee, you say whatever you want. The truth is that the best woman won and you can't take it.

Leo: Get out, Greenlee. Now.

Greenlee: I won't let you win, Leo. I'm staying in Pine Valley, living my life.

Laura: Leave, Greenlee! Now! You can't talk to my husband like that!

[Laura gasps]

Leo: Whoa, whoa, whoa, you ok, you ok?

Laura: Get out of here!

Leo: Get out, Greenlee, please.

Leo: Don't get excited. She's leaving, all right?

Greenlee: Are you going to fix this?

Leo: Yes. Get out.

Greenlee: You'd better. Or I'll be back.

Edmund: Come here, come here. Listen, it's ok. It's a big step turning your father in, ok? Forget it. Look, I can talk to him, ok? I could talk to him. I can make sure that he doesn't --

Shannon: Just shut up about my father, will you? He's not going to hit me anymore.

Edmund: How do you know that for sure?

Shannon: This is not a big deal. Stop trying to make it one. Go find Gabriel and Rosa. That's what you should be doing. I mean, make them pay for what they did to Marcus and leave innocent people alone!

Derek: I spoke again to the ER nurse.

Edmund: She remembers a watch, right?

Derek: She saw the watch. It might have been Marcus', might've been another patient's.

Edmund: Derek, were there ever any domestic violence reports coming out of Shannon's house?

Derek: Against whom?

Edmund: Her father.

Derek: Not that I know of. And what does that have to do with anything?

Edmund: Doesn't have anything to do with anything. Not her father, anyway. Marcus has been beating her.

Derek: Well, if that's true, she can rest easy for a little while.

Edmund: Derek, help me. You know he's got a record of priors. What is it? Is it violence? Come on.

Derek: Is your point that Marcus deserved what he got?

Edmund: No!

Derek: Because somebody fractured that kid's skull. Now, first we have to find out who did it and then we can worry about motive.

Edmund: Whoever did it, it wasn't Gabriel and Rosa.

Derek: Shannon in there? She is going to testify that she saw Gabriel standing over Marcus, holding a blood-soaked oar in his hand. Marcus's watch was found in rosa's purse. Now, if you care anything for these kids' chances, you will help find them and convince them to bring themselves in. Until then, Edmund, we have got nothing else to say to each other.

Liza: I can't stay. I have to get home to Colby.

Marian: Liza, she's with her nanny. And you'll be there when she wakes up in the morning, darling. Please stay with me.

Liza: Alright. Haven't really been sleeping very well. Might as well stay up and talk to you. But I don't want to talk about that woman.

Marian: We'll talk about whatever you want.

Liza: You know, I just have one question. I mean, do you have any proof other than this woman's word?

Marian: Yes, her mother contacted me about it a long time ago.

Liza: After Daddy died? You -- you just have her mother's word?

Marian: Liza, she was telling the truth. I could tell.

Liza: Mother, she could have gotten facts from newspapers. She could've talked to people about Daddy.

Marian: Darling, it wasn't the facts she knew about your father. She -- she really knew him. And I believe that she really loved him.

Liza: How can you sit here calmly and talk about another woman loving your husband?

Marian: He was already gone by then, Liza, and it -- it gave me comfort to know that somebody else had made him happy because your father was a wonderful man. And we both know that I hurt him terribly. He deserved a much better wife than me.

Liza: Mama, just all these years, you know, I -- I accused you of being wild and driving Daddy to his grave, and -- and you knew this and you didn't say anything to me?

Marian: Because you loved your father. Because I love you. Liza, your father is still the wonderful man you've always known that he was. Please just forgive him this one mistake. And just don't dwell one more second on this grief, all right, please?

Marian: My baby. I'm so sorry.

Mia: Yeah, when my mom died, I went to live with my uncle, but it's not like we really ever had a home or anything.

Ryan: Never felt like you belonged anywhere.

Mia: Yeah, it's like everybody else had a guidebook to life except for me.

Ryan: I felt like I was in a free-fall --

Mia and Ryan: Without a parachute.

Mia: Hmm.

Ryan: You don't really need to stay in that crummy motel tonight.

Mia: That the same offer you made my sister?

Ryan: It's an offer for a master stateroom on a beautiful yacht. You'll have the place to yourself. I moved.

Mia: Hmm. Too many memories, huh?

Ryan: You're welcome to stay there until you, I don't know, get a handle on things.

Mia: Oh! When's that going to be? Whoo!

Ryan: Whenever, whenever.

Mia: Hmm, maybe just tonight.

Liza: Where is the picture, Mother? I can't -- I can't find it.

Marian: Oh, just keep looking, Liza. Oh, I think it's in the bottom drawer.

Liza: I just can't take this. I -- I keep remembering h touching my forehead, kissing me, and telling me that I was his little girl. And he had a daughter across town or wherever? I mean, my God, that's -- he lied to me. He lied to you. I mean, he -- he's just like Adam!

Marian: Oh, Liza, please. Please don't do this to yourself. Your father was nothing like Adam. Maybe except in one way -- they both loved you. And I believe Adam still does love you.

Liza: Please don't.

Marian: Please, Darling, don't just dwell on the broken parts of your life right now.

Liza: How can I not? None of this makes any sense.

Marian: Look, just lean on the people who are around you, who can give you comfort -- me, Stuart, and Colby. Just lean on us, ok?

Liza: And not Ryan. That's what you mean.

Marian: Darling, you've got to be very careful with your feelings right now. I just don't want you to do anything you're going to regret.

Edmund: Ok. All right, Derek. I'll go home. I'll help Anna find Gabriel and Rosa.

Derek: Good. And when you find them, convince them to come in.

Edmund: Fine. Do me a favor -- don't give up trying to find whoever that was at the boathouse that night.

Derek: Edmund, you know I'll do whatever I can to find that person. All right.

Rosa: Gabriel, the police are going to realize that -- that they made a mistake and that we didn't hurt Marcus.

Gabriel: How? Marcus' blood was on me.

Rosa: Yeah, but -- but you didn't do it.

Gabriel: Yeah, we know that, but Shannon saw me with the oar and Mr. Dunn thinks we're guilty, and that's all the police need.

Rosa: The way that he looked at us -- it was like we were dirt.

Gabriel: Well, that's because that's how he feels.

Rosa: My mom always tried to keep me away from people like him.

Gabriel: Man, he's so sure that I'm guilty because of the way that I look, and the police are listening to him because he's so dang powerful.

Rosa: You're right.

Gabriel: Look, Rosa, we can't stay here. If the police come, they're going to find us and they're going to put us in jail and they'll never find out who's really guilty.

Rosa: No, Mateo won't let them. And Edmund? They're not going to stop until they find the truth.

Gabriel: Do you really think we can hide out here until then?

Rosa: Maybe we should just go now, just get as far away as possible.

Gabriel: If we leave now, they won't see us.

Rosa: Yeah. Can you wait a minute?

Rosa: Maria? Please take care of Mom, ok? She must be so scared right now. You -- you tell her to be strong and that I love her and I'm so, so sorry.

Leo: It's ok. Just breathe.

Laura: No, I'm ok, I'm ok. She just made me mad.

Leo: Yeah, well, she makes everyone mad with what she does and what she says.

Laura: You know, I just want to forget her. Could we just not talk about her?

Leo: Sure, right. So you must be tired.

Laura: Yeah. Yeah, I don't think I can move from here.

Leo: Then don't. Just sit here. Listen, I'm going to give you a little time to rest, ok? All right.

Laura: No, Leo, Leo, don't leave me. Please. Don't ever leave me.

>> On the next "All My Children" --

Mia: How fast are you? Ooh!

Ryan: Pretty fast.

Marian: What are you going to do?

Liza: I'm going to nail that lying tramp to the floorboards, Mother!

Edmund: You found them, didn't you? Where are they?

Tad: Hey, gorgeous.

J.R.: Tad, watch out!
