All My Children Transcript Wednesday 8/22/01

Provided by Amanda

Liza: Come on, Mia! It's your wake-up call. Drag yourself out of bed and answer the door!

Ryan: Liza? What time is it? What are you doing?

Liza: I'm here for your guest, the one who is milking me for $100,000. I've got the check, I'm calling her bluff. Come on! It's the bloodmobile! I want your DNA!

Ryan: You're serious.

Liza: Of course I'm serious. I'm going to prove that this chick is not my sister. Come on! Is -- is this locked? Do you have a key?

Ryan: I don't think it's locked.

Liza: Oh.

Ryan: Mia?

Liza: You know what? That's probably not even her name. Oh, she better be in the bathroom.

Ryan: Yeah. Ahem.

Liza: Well, she's not here.

Ryan: Did you check under the bed?

Liza: It is not funny. Are you hiding her?

Gillian: This is Erica Kane's house.

Jesse: Yeah, it's tight, right? Girl always did do good for herself.

Gillian: Yeah, but what are we doing here? And why do we keep running into that man? I don't trust him at all.

Jesse: Hmm. Why not?

Gillian: Because! Remember, we saw him in Erica's office? He was on the phone? He's spying on her.

Jesse: Well, trying to figure something out. So are you.

Gillian: So, this man has something in common with me? Or Ryan? Why am I even asking you? [As Jesse] "Girl, go figure it out for yourself!"

[Gillian sighs]

[Doorbell rings]

Jesse: You want to help Ryan, right?

Gillian: [Normal voice] Mm-hmm. That's all I want to do.

Jesse: Then pay attention -- to everything.

Bianca: Mr. Stamp.

Chris: Reporting for duty. Good morning to you.

Bianca: Good morning.

Bianca: Are you wearing a flak-jacket?

Chris: Nope. Left it at the cleaners. Why, is there a problem?

Bianca: Well, I don't know what you did to make my mom so mad, but if I were you, I would keep my head down.

Chris: Well, that would be kind of hard for me to do since I drive her car. But how mad are we talking -- stomping feet, throwing dishes?

Bianca: Way beyond that.

Chris: Really? Hmm. This is a good thing. My job was getting kind of boring. Woman of the house! Are you ready? Or do I have to come up there and slide you out from underneath your satin sheets? Huh.

Bianca: So, how long have you had a death wish?

Chris: Does that include roller coasters? All my life.

Erica: Mr. Stamp, did I hear you correctly?

Chris: I was yelling loud enough.

Erica: And how dare you!

Chris: I was getting ready to chew you out. And now that I look at you and I see that face, all I can say is "wow."

Edmund Derek, your men have been here all night. How long do you plan to keep searching?

Derek: As long as it takes to find the people we're looking for. Now, Wildwind's a big estate, but I got plenty of time.

Edmund: Listen, my kids see policemen everywhere. They're getting scared.

Derek: Then why don't you help me?

Anna: We told you -- there's no one hiding here.

Derek: Nobody but your brother and his sister-in-law.

Anna: They haven't done anything wrong.

Derek: Ok, then why are they running?

Anna: Oh, I don't know -- maybe because they've been falsely accused.

Derek: Well, you know, that would be for a court to decide, wouldn't it? But in the meantime, if you are harboring them, that's a serious crime in itself. Call the station, tell them we need five more uniformed officers -- and the K-9 unit.

Anna: No, no, no.

Derek: I told you I was serious.

Edmund: Wait! Call off your dogs. I'll tell you where Gabriel and Rosa are hiding.

Anna: What are you doing?

Edmund: Anna, I'm sorry.

Anna: You're sorry?

Edmund: Can't do this anymore.

Anna: You can't do what, protect two people that are in trouble? Family?

Edmund: You know how much I love Rosa. Anna: Oh, but you're willing to hand over my brother to the police?

Edmund: No! It's just look, just too many people can get hurt, all right?

Anna: I told them, I promised them that if they stay where they are, they won't get hurt --

Edmund: That's not your promise to keep, ok? Too many things could go wrong. Look, if my kids get caught in the crossfire --

Derek: Look, if Gabriel is innocent, whoever attacked Marcus is still out there. Now, do you want to keep on arguing, or would you like to clear this up?

Edmund: I should have come forward last night.

Derek: No doubt.

Edmund: Derek, they are not armed, ok?

Derek: I told you, Edmund, that I wanted to try to keep this peaceful anyway. So where are they?

Edmund: Well, I haven't seen them lately, but last night, they were in the tack room, the stables.

Derek: Ok. Let's go.

[Door closes]

Anna: Brilliant.

Edmund: Thank you. Thought you were going to kill me.

Anna: Yeah. I was.

Edmund: Ok. Let's hope we bought these kids enough time to get away.

Anna: Ok. I'll go tell them to take off.

Edmund: All right. Listen, here, give them this. They're going to need it. I'll send them more.

Anna: They can live off this for a while -- here.

Edmund: Ok.

Anna: Thank you.

Edmund: Go.

Anna: Derek can have us arrested, you know?

Edmund: I'll deal with Derek. You just make sure they take off.

Erica: Excuse me! Did you say I was late?

Chris: Have you taken a look at your clock? You hired me to be here at the crack of dawn, and here I am, ready to take you on your ladies' lunch or a day at the spa or --

Erica: Mr. Stamp, I work for a living.

Chris: Oh, so do I. I show up on time, so why can't you do the same?

Erica: You do realize that I needed you to drive me last night and you never showed up at all!

Chris: What are you talking about?

Erica: I left you a message! Oh, didn't you get it?

Chris: No, I didn't!

Erica: I had to go to a very important fundraising dinner last night.

Chris: Uh-huh.

Erica: And I needed you to drive me!

Chris: So, what did you do? Did you -- did you call a cab?

Erica: No, I waited for you, Mr. Stamp, until it was too late for me to even make an appearance.

Chris: Wait a minute. Are you paying me to work for you 24/7? Just tell me.

Erica: On call -- I expect you to be on call!

Chris: 24 Hours?

Erica: Whatever! Yes!

Chris: Oh. Is this where I'm supposed to go, "ok, fine. Because you're so good-looking, I'm supposed to give you my life"? Well, I'm sorry. It's not like that, ok? I mean, you are beautiful, but I have my own life, and what I do with it on my time is my business. Besides, you didn't miss a thing last night.

Erica: Oh -- you would know? You were there?

Chris: A benefit, Erica, is a benefit. 500 Bucks, steam-table food, lousy music. You've probably been to so many of those you have rubber chicken coming out of your ears. Oh, what kind of a benefit was last night?

Erica: The ballet.

Chris: [British accent] Oh. So they probably threw in some sweaty leotards for you?

[Normal voice] what a night to remember!

Erica: Oh, I suppose you would prefer chili dogs at a Phillies game.

Chris: Ah, now you're talking. That's heaven.

Erica: Oh.

Chris: I mean, you would like it, too, if you ever tried it. Besides, I'm not your social secretary.

Erica: No, thank God for that.

Chris: As a matter of fact, I don't even know if I'm your driver anymore, so why don't we clear this up. If you're going to fire me, do it now, ok, please? Because there's a doubleheader over at the Vet today and I still have time to make batting practice. Is that a yes?

Liza: Isn't here.

Ryan: Are you sure? Did you search the whole yacht?

Liza: Stem to stern.

Ryan: So you satisfied?

Liza: "Satisfied"? What's that supposed to mean?

Ryan: You asked me if I was hiding Mia. Why would I lie to you?

Liza: Well, she did sleep here.

Ryan: Yeah. Looks like it, but I said good night to her at the door and I haven't seen her since. Here, have coffee.

Liza: No. Where do you think she went?

Ryan: I don't know. She's got that job at the health club.

Liza: No. There's no way she went to her job today.

Ryan: Why not?

Liza: She lays down this really hideous story about being the love child of my father. And then she gets cold feet because I say, "I want a blood test. I'm going to check your DNA" So you know what I think? I think that she packed a bag. She's gone.

Ryan: I don't think so. She doesn't seem like the type of person that would just run away from a fight, especially not with money involved. And you what, you upped the ante to $100,000 calling her bluff?

Liza: Are you telling me I shouldn't have done that?

Ryan: I'm just saying it's, you know, a little risky. Hey, but that's your style. You're a player like her.

Liza: Meaning what? Are you saying that the two of us are so much alike that we've just got to be sisters? The two of us are just a couple of conniving bitches? Oh, and you know what? Maybe Adam doesn't feel guilty about cheating on me because I deserve it!

Ryan: Liza --

Liza: Oh, well, you know what? Maybe, maybe, just maybe Mia is telling the truth, and maybe my mother deserved it because my father was sleeping around on her, and, I mean, that's what Mia thinks. You seem to believe everything that Mia says to you. I mean, I don't know why you're taking her side, but you are.

Ryan: Liza, stop it! I swear I'm not taking the side of your sister.

Liza: She's not my sister.

Ryan: Well, if you're so sure of that, Liza, why are you letting her get to you? Why don't you just tell her to get out of here?

Liza: I don't need this.

Ryan: Then stop treating me like your enemy because I'm not.

Liza: Let go of me.

Ryan: Not until you open your eyes.

Liza: To what?

Ryan: Look around here. What do you see?

Liza: A stateroom on a boat.

Ryan: You're right. That's all this is now. But this room that you're stomping around, throwing doors open, ripping sheets off the bed -- this used to be my home, Liza. This used to be where I slept with Gillian and I would tell her that I will hold on to her and I will never, ever let her go. But I was lying to her. I didn't know it. But I was because I couldn't hold on to her. I couldn't keep her from being in the wrong place at the wrong time, keep her from being shot, from dying. And then I died, too.

Liza: I -- I know that's how you feel.

Ryan: No, that's how it is. When I was in the fire, you know what I thought? I thought, "Good. Thank God. I get to be with Gillian. I get to be with her forever."

Liza: Then why did you fight your way out?

Ryan: Because she was there and she told me it wasn't my time. And I know you think I'm losing my mind.

Liza: No, I don't. You know, I was in the woods and you were -- you were coming back from the fire. I should have taken you to the hospital, and I didn't. Instead, I fell into your arms and --

Ryan: You'd just found out that Adam had betrayed you.

Liza: Yeah, well, didn't take me too long to get even, now, did it?

Ryan: What's the matter, Liza? It wasn't good for you?

Liza: You have every reason to hate me, but please --

Ryan: Stop it! I don't hate you! Ok? And I'm sorry that all these things are happening to you all at once, that you found out that Adam broke your heart again and that this woman, Mia, is rewriting your memory, that your father may not be such a saint. It's a lot to handle, Liza, and you want revenge on the world and it didn't matter how you got it.

Liza: Do you feel I used you? Ryan: I was the perfect weapon.

Liza: You make me sound so ugly. Didn't you use me?

Ryan: Yes. The problem was it didn't work. All you did is remind me what it feels like to care about somebody, and I want to be numb, Liza, but you won't let me because you keep dumping your problems on me, and I hate it!

Derek: I don't understand you two. Do you want me to arrest you? Aiding and abetting, and now I can obstruction of justice?

Edmund: What for?

Derek: Look, don't get cute with me, Edmund. Don't get cute. You know what for. They weren't where you said they'd be -- as if you didn't know.

Edmund: Well, Derek, they were in the stable last night. Maybe they heard one of your men and they went somewhere else.

Derek: You know, Edmund, that is such bull.

Warren: Have you found that animal yet? Or that little tart who's been helping him?

Anna: Who let you in here? Derek, get him out!

Derek: Mr. Dunn, what are you doing here? This is private property.

Warren: What? Are you putting me on notice? I just talked to your commissioner. I raised hell with him, and he told me that you've been searching e grounds. Now, what have you come up with?

Derek: Nothing, but we'll let you know when we do.

Warren: That is totally unacceptable. I want those two delinquents found and locked up for what they did to my son.

Edmund: How is Marcus?

Warren: Still in a coma, thank you, where your brother put him!

Edmund: Well, then maybe you should be at the hospital. You'll be more useful there.

Warren: Doing what? Staring at my child? Wondering if he's ever going to wake up again? No. I am interested in justice being served.

Edmund: By railroading two innocent kids?

Warren: There was an eyewitness to the attack. Why are you people protecting them?

Edmund: Because they're my family and I love them. Do you understand that? Do you understand that you're on my property uninvited, Mr. Dunn? Now, I want you to leave, now, or you'll be escorted off.

Warren: Lieutenant, I hope the commissioner made it very clear to you that your job is on the line.

Derek: Is that an ultimatum, Mr. Dunn?

Warren: No. Let's just call it a challenge because while you people are stumbling around, I'm going to go hunt down these animals by myself.

Derek: Make sure he gets out of here. How do you like that guy? His kid is in a coma, and he has time to run around being a vigilante.

Edmund: Think he's covering up for something?

Derek: Don't you?

Edmund: Derek, how hard is the police commissioner leaning on you?

Derek: Not just me, Edmund. Everybody's a little jumpier than I'd like, which is why it would be better if Rosa and Gabriel just turned themselves in.

Anna: But then the commissioner's going to close the investigation, right?

Derek: It could go that way, yeah.

Anna: Then you understand what we did?

Derek: It doesn't make it right, Anna!

Anna: I know.

Derek: I mean, you're taking advantage of my friendship.

Edmund: Derek --

Derek: Don't, don't, just --

[Anna sighs]

Anna: Sorry. I'm so sorry.

Edmund: What are you sorry for?

Anna: Well, I put you in this position.

Edmund: The person who put us in this position is the one who tried to kill Marcus Dunn. He's the one responsible for this mess.

Anna: I'm beginning to feel like there's no way out of it.

Edmund: Unless --

Anna: What?

Edmund: Didn't Dunn say something about an eyewitness?

Anna: Yeah. He meant Shannon, though, right? Didn't you try to speak to her?

Edmund: Yes, I did. But I'm betting that you can get Shannon to tell the truth.

Chris: Ok. I got my CD's out of the car, the ones I listen to when you're not out holding court in the back there.

Erica: Oh, for example?

Chris: Stuff you wouldn't even go near. It's not ballet music, Darling.

Erica: Like what?

Chris: What? My man! Bozo Scaggs. Erica: "Dirty Lowdown" happens to be one of my all-time favorites.

Chris: Really? Well, here. Give it to your new driver, have him pop it in.

Erica: Oh, Mr. Stamp, I'm not firing you.

Chris: And I was doing my irritating best. Sheesh.

Erica: Yeah, you were very, very impressive with that irritating best.

Chris: Thank you.

Erica: But I also think that you seem to be honest and you seem to be direct, and I admire that.

Chris: Yeah. And look at all the little secrets that we have. Look at you -- Bozo Scaggs!

Erica: Well, I'm sure that you have some personality quirks we don't know about.

Chris: Well, only one that I would readily admit to -- I happen to be a terrific cook.

Erica: You mean you microwave buffalo wings?

Chris: Oh. You see, now, you wouldn't be saying that if you had eaten properly this morning, which you haven't, right? So why don't I whip up a omelet with fresh herbs?

Erica: I'm fresh out of fresh herbs.

Chris: Yeah? You may think that it's a weed, but out there in your flower garden, right there in the front, is a patch of wild thyme growing.

Erica: I doubt that.

Chris: Come on. I'll show you. It's right over there.

Bianca: Mom, are you going out today? Mom, is Mr. Stamp -- Mom? Mom!

Gabriel: I'm sorry. I didn't know if anyone else was around.

Bianca: No, I think we're alone, and don't worry -- I'm fine. How are you guys? I heard that you were arrested.

Rosa: We didn't do anything, but somebody almost killed Marcus.

Bianca: I know.

Rosa: Well, the cops think that it was Gabriel, and that's why we had to go on the run. We were actually hiding somewhere else --

Gabriel: Yeah, and then the cops showed up. Look, I would never do this to you, but I didn't know where else to go.

Bianca: No, I'm -- I'm glad you guys trust me. I'm sure that there's somewhere in the house that we can put you.

Gabriel: No, no, no, no, no. I would never ask you to do that. Look, we just need to catch our breath, that's all. Look, I've been on the run before, but this is a lot tougher on Rosa.

Bianca: It's ok. We're going to figure something out.

[Voices]

Bianca: Oh, my God. I thought she was gone. Quickly! Get in here!

Erica: I -- I'm just amazed. Bianca!

Bianca: Hi.

Erica: Hi, Honey. Come here and smell this.

Bianca: What is it?

Erica: This is wild thyme. It's growing right out there by the porch.

Chris: Makes a great omelet.

Bianca: Amazing.

Erica: Yes.

Chris: I'll make one for your mom. Would you like one?

Bianca: No. Thanks.

Erica: Bianca, are you all right?

Bianca: Yeah, sure.

Rosa: I can't breathe in here!

Gabriel: No, yes, you can!

Rosa: No, it's just -- there's no air.

Gabriel: Just breathe slowly.

Rosa: I can't!

Gabriel: Like me, just --

Chris: That's ok. My feelings aren't hurt.

Bianca: I'm just -- I'm not hungry, Mr. Stamp.

Erica: Bianca, I can tell that something's upsetting you. What is it, Honey? What's going on?

Shannon: Dr. Martin, how is he?

Joe: Your name is Shannon, isn't it?

Shannon: Yes.

Joe: You're a good friend, Shannon. I've seen you here almost every day.

Shannon: Marcus and I were close.

Joe: Uh-huh.

Shannon: I mean, we are.

Joe: Oh.

Shannon: Is he getting any better?

Joe: Well, I wish I could say that he was, but there's been no change.

Shannon: He's still in a coma?

Joe: Yes.

Shannon: Is he going to come out of it?

Joe: We don't know.

Shannon: Can I still go in and see him?

Joe: Yeah. You can go in.

Shannon: Thanks, Dr. Martin.

Anna: I've done this before, you know, pretended to be Alex. Edmund: And you got away

with it!

Anna: I'm not very good at it, though. It's all the medical lingo -- it hangs me up.

Edmund: Just be vague. I mean, you don't have to say much. The guy's in a coma, right?

Anna: It's not Marcus I'm worried about.

Edmund: You're going to be fine.

Anna: Ok.

Edmund: Ok.

Anna: Great. Well, I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be.

Edmund: Ok, Dr. Marick. You ready for your rounds?

Anna: Yeah. Wow.

Edmund: Good luck.

Anna: Ok.

Ryan: Does that help?

Liza: I really messed up. My life is a mess -- just a mess. I'm sorry I dragged you into it.

Ryan: Yeah, misery loves company.

Liza: Yeah, well, it should stay in a room by itself.

Ryan: You're doing it again.

Liza: What?

Ryan: Asking me to give a damn.

Liza: No, I'm not.

Ryan: Let me guess -- you feel alone.

Liza: I am alone. I'm married to Adam Chandler. I know what kind of man Adam is. I mean, I'm not stupid no matter what anybody might think. I know Adam from the ground up. I let him do this to me. You know, maybe my mother did teach me something after all -- what it's like to settle for half a life. You know, if Mia's telling the truth and she really is my sister -- my God, I'm so frustrated and angry and I'm dumping all this on you and I really shouldn't have come here in the first place, and I'm sorry.

Ryan: You still don't get it, do you, Liza?

Liza: I said I was sorry.

Ryan: I don't want you to apologize. I want you to wake up.

Liza: To what?

Ryan: To how lucky you are.

Liza: Oh, I have a husband that cheats on me and lies to my face. I'm a winner.

Ryan: You know, Gillian hurt me like that once. She slept with Hayward because she needed his help, and that was his only condition, but you know what? I did something worse. I couldn't forgive her because I was too proud.

Liza: You came around.

Ryan: Yeah, but after all that time that we could have been together, Liza, all that time I can't get back. She hurt me, so I hurt her back, right? I mean, why not? We have lots of time to make up. We have our whole lives together.

Liza: Ryan --

Ryan: Our whole lives together. If Gillian came to me right now and she said, "I lied to you and I cheated on you," I would say, "it doesn't matter as long as you never leave me again." But that conversation is not going to happen because I'm not going to have that chance. You are with Adam, and, Liza, you're throwing it away. You're mad at him, right, but you love him, so why don't you two just slug it out and get on with your lives, and while you're at it, do me a favor and stay the hell out of mine.

Jesse: Damn it. I knew I shouldn't have checked in yet. Now what's the problem?

Gillian: Ryan needs me.

Jesse: Yeah? Well, I don't see him around.

Gillian: Well, I can feel him, though, and he's in pain. So why'd you leave me here when he's in pain and he needs me?

Jesse: Have y been doing what I told you to do -- watching what's going on in there?

Gillian: Yes! And it has nothing to do with me or Ryan!

Jesse: Well, then, you need to keep watching, girl.

Erica: Honey, I hope you ate something this morning.

Bianca: I had a yogurt. Really, I'm fine.

Erica: Well, you're not, but I don't want to push you.

Chris: Famous last words.

Erica: Will you stay out of this?

Bianca: Look, I'll tell you guys what happened, ok? It's just it's lame. I -- I heard this song and it made me kind of sad because I used to play it a lot when I was in rehab. Ok? It just made me remember things.

Erica: Oh, Honey --

Bianca: Mom, it's not a big deal at all. Just go have your omelet.

Erica: All right.

Chris: Sure you don't want one?

Bianca: Maybe next time.

Chris: You got it.

Bianca: You guys ok?

Rosa: Yeah.

Gabriel: Yeah, look, we're ok, but that was way too close. We got to get out of here.

Rosa: Yeah, but where are we going to go? I mean, I bet you the police already have road blocks up.

Gabriel: We'll figure out something, all right? I promise. Look, I won't let anything happen to you.

Bianca: You guys, I just thought of a place that we can go. Come on. Follow me.

Shannon: What are you doing here?

Anna: I'm sorry. Have we met?

Shannon: Oh, I'm Shannon. I'm a friend of Marcus'. You're Dr. Marick, aren't you?

Anna: That's right.

Shannon: I read in the paper that you and your husband were in Europe, for a funeral or something.

Anna: Yes, we were. But I'm a neurologist, you see? And I've dealt a great deal with patients who've had brain injuries, traumatic ones, so they called me and asked me to fly home.

Shannon: Well, it must have been disappointing -- I mean, to come all this way and find the patient, you know, like this.

Anna: Actually, I'm very encouraged.

Shannon: You are?

Anna: Yes. I -- I think it's possible that Mr. Dunn will make a complete recovery.

Shannon: That would be amazing, but Dr. Martin said that that wouldn't happen.

Anna: He did?

Shannon: Yeah.

Anna: Oh, well, I don't think that he's read the latest scans.

Shannon: What about them?

Anna: They said that Mr. Dunn's brain wave activities are normalizing.

Shannon: You mean he's going to come out of the coma?

Anna: Well, I see no reason at all why he won't be sitting up and talking any moment now. Well, if you'd excuse me, I need to make another thorough exam.

Shannon: Oh, ok.

Anna: Ok. Who knows? Maybe we'll have more good news.

Shannon: Go away. I'm not talking to you.

Edmund: You think I was out of line yesterday?

Shannon: Yes, totally.

Edmund: I'm sorry. I just want to help you.

Shannon: How? By asking all those horrible questions? Making me --

Edmund: What's the matter? Shannon? Making you what? Is there somebody who doesn't want you to tell the truth?

Anna: Mr. Grey! Mr. Grey?

Edmund: Yes.

Anna: I was told that you wanted to be informed of the patient's condition.

Edmund: Yes.

Anna: Well, there's been a change. I think you should come, right now.

Bianca: I used a phony name when I checked in, and I paid in cash.

Rosa: The clerk didn't ask any questions?

Bianca: This isn't exactly a four-star hotel.

Gabriel: It looks ok.

Bianca: I think that you guys are going to be safe here, at least for tonight, and then we can figure something else out for tomorrow.

Rosa: What if somebody followed us?

Bianca: I was checking in my rearview mirror. I didn't see anyone.

Gabriel: Are you ok?

Rosa: Yeah. My stomach just feels kind of weird.

Bianca: Maybe you should lie down.

Rosa: No. You know, I'll just splash some water on my face. I'll feel better.

Gabriel: I shouldn't have dragged her into this.

Bianca: She wouldn't have come with you unless she believed in you, Gabriel.

Gabriel: I -- I know, but --

Bianca: What?

Gabriel: This is way too much for her, Bianca, way too much.

Man: Yeah, I found them. Do I deal with them now?

Warren: All in good time, my friend. All in good time.

Shannon: Mr. Grey, what's going on? Is Marcus -- is he worse?

Edmund: No. He came out of the coma. And, Shannon, he told us everything.

Liza: I know you're mad at me.

Ryan: I don't want to be mad. Liza, I don't -- I don't want to be anything. All right? Please, just -- just go.

Liza: All right. Is there anything I can do for you before I go?

Ryan: Yeah -- bring Gillian back.

Chris: Well? I'm dying over here. What did you think?

Erica: Oh. Well, I think that you should open a restaurant. I mean it. I think the omelet was amazing.

Chris: Thank you.

Erica: Bianca? Bianca, you missed a treat! Bianca? She must have gone out.

Chris: Is that a problem?

Erica: Well she was upset about something.

Chris: Probably just teenage stuff.

Erica: I hope that's all it was.

Chris: Well, if it's ever anything more than that, just know that I'm here.

Erica: Well, that's very kind of you, Mr. Stamp.

Chris: And if I may say so, I think your daughter is a terrific kid.

Erica: She is.

Chris: Meanwhile, your chariot awaits -- to go to the office.

Erica: You know something? I really -- I would rather be here when Bianca comes back, so actually, I think I'll work from home today. I'm sorry I'm sorry you came by for nothing.

Chris: Hey, you pay, I play.

Erica: Well, tomorrow, we'll get back on our regular schedule.

Chris: Whatever you say, lady boss.

Erica: You have spent the entire morning trying to charm me, Mr. Stamp. What is that about? You trying to put one over on me? Let me tell you something -- nobody messes with Erica Kane.

Chris: Stamp here. No, it's not working out. It's getting ready to blow up in our faces. Well, two reasons -- Tad Martin is a loose cannon and Erica Kane -- she's much too smart for this. She's going to figure out what I've been up to. No, no, listen to me. We have to move and we have to move fast.

Gillian: Who is that man and what does he want? And why is he lying to Erica and Tad? Is he trying to hurt them, or is he after somebody else? He's not trying to hurt Ryan, is he? Tell me!

Jesse: No can do. You're going to have to figure it out by yourself, so keep watching!

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

Greenlee: I'm not letting you off the hook. Am I making myself clear?

Adam: I'm on my way back, and I want a full report on your little homework assignment.
