>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Hailey: Mateo is gone more than he's here. And he's just got this edge.

Mateo: I get promoted and I don't even get a handshake? Guess the meeting's over, huh?

Erica: Is Bianca all right?

Frankie: She found me with another guy. Well, you have to find her!

Leo: You're going to make me the happiest man in the world? Will you marry me?

Ryan: Is Mateo working late again?

Hayley: Oh, what do you think? I don't think I recall a time when he's not working late anymore.

Ryan: Oh.

Hayley: But we're fine, I'm fine. The baby's fine. We're all fine.

Ryan: Hmm.

Hayley: Okay, so we're not fine.

Ryan: Talk to me.

Hayley: Oh, go, sit. Well -- whew -- Lorenzo is the greatest baby on earth, but he is a baby and it's a lot of work, man, you know?

Ryan: Yeah. I've heard that.

Hayley: Yeah. So I feel like, you know, look at me.

Ryan: And what am I supposed to see?

Hayley: Underneath all the makeup, a lot of new-mother angst.

Ryan: Yeah. Well, I think in your case it's even more than that.

Hayley: Thank you. I thought you were going to cheer me up.

Ryan: I am. I have exactly what you need.

Jake: Okay.

Roger: "Okay" what? Where's David?

Jake: Well, Dr. Hayward is handling an emergency right now.

Roger: What's that look on your face?

Jake: Empathy. I have to apologize for keeping you down here in the E.R. We've had a real crunch on the rooms here lately, so as soon as one is available, it's yours.

Roger: Don't worry about it. I'm -- I'm being discharged.

Jake: Hayward tell you that?

Roger: Well, no, he didn't have to. I feel fine.

Jake: Well, that's good news, that's good news. But unfortunately, your heart rate is elevated. And we're going to have to keep you in here until it goes down and stays down for a while. Then there's that pesky amnesia you seem to have picked up. We don't know the source of that yet, either. Tell you what -- why don't you sit here, hang tight. We're going to get you in a room as soon as one's available. I'm going to get some answers for you, okay?

Roger: Oh --

Roger: Mateo, what the hell?

Mateo: Why are you in the hospital, Rog?

Roger: Would it surprise you if I told you I'm here because of you?

Leo: Come on, Greens. Put me out of my misery here.

Greenlee: This is making you miserable?

Leo: You not telling me that you're going to marry me does, yeah.

Greenlee: Well, there's one little problem.

Leo: What's that?

Greenlee: You're already married.

Leo: I already told you, that's over. Okay? I'm not going to stay with Laura.

Greenlee: In your head.

Leo: No, not just in my head.

Greenlee: She is not going to make you forget this, Leo.

Leo: Yeah, well, she's not, but, you know, it's not going to be so unbearable because I know that I'm going to be able to be with you right after it's all over. Greenlee, I know that I put you through hell.

Greenlee: Yeah. Yeah, you have.

Leo: And I know that I have two marriages under my belt that had absolutely nothing to do with love.

Greenlee: True.

Leo: But this -- look at me. This is the real thing -- us. You're the only one that I ever really loved.

[Phone rings]

Greenlee: Bet that's your current wife wondering whether you picked up a loaf of bread.

Leo: I'm not answering it.

Greenlee: I think you should. The last time you ignored a phone call, Laura was passed out on the floor of Jake's apartment.

[Ring]

Leo: Yeah?

Erica: Leo, it's Erica.

Leo: Erica?

Erica: Leo? I have never asked you for anything, ever, but this is an emergency.

Leo: What kind of an emergency?

Erica: Bianca is -- she's hurt.

Leo: What? How?

Erica: I mean, she's destroyed. She saw something that she shouldn't have and she got upset and she ran off and I have no idea where she is, so I need you to find her. Please, Leo.

Leo: I'm going to need a little bit more information than this, Erica.

Erica: Leo, just do as I say. Just find her and keep her with you. Just no matter what she says, no matter what she asks you, please, just take her to my house and stay with her until I get home.

Leo: Erica, what the hell happened to her?

Erica: Leo, if you care for Bianca at all -- and I think that you do -- you will just do as I say. Please, Leo. Just find my daughter and take care of her. I have to go.

Erica: Chris. Thank God you're here.

Erica: She's dead.

Chris: Oh, my God. Erica, who killed her?

Greenlee: Come on. Come on, get up, go find your friend and we'll continue this later.

Leo: You're unbelievable.

Greenlee: So I've been told.

Leo: Hey, what is this?

Greenlee: It's just -- go! Find Bianca. Let's not race to get anything.

Leo: Come here.

Leo: I love --

Greenlee: Go. Please.

Leo: Greenlee, it's different this time. I swear to you.

Greenlee: Yes, hi. Is Jake Martin on duty? Great. Thanks.

Mateo: I wish I was the one who put you in here, Rog, but it wasn't me.

Roger: You made all this happen.

Mateo: What are you talking about?

Roger: Mucking up the works, insisting on meeting Proteus? Your demands cut into my time at Enchantment. Proteus was breathing down my neck. Now, you just sit still and do as you're told.

Mateo: Look, Rog --

Roger: No, you look. While I was baby-sitting you, Greenlee got fired at Enchantment. I lost access to their computers. The operation's entire program is hidden in those computers.

Mateo: Does Proteus know?

Roger: Of course he does. Meantime, my daughter thinks I'm having a heart attack and losing my mind at the same time, which I probably am, and I end up half dead in some Philadelphia hotel room with no idea how I got there.

Mateo: What kind of work are you doing over there at Enchantment, Rog? Hmm?

Roger: You know what? It doesn't matter.

Mateo: No, see, it does to me.

Roger: Let it go, Mateo. You hear me?

Mateo: No, I canít. I can't let it go. I can't let it go. Now, you got to tell me what Proteus was doing at Enchantment, all right?

Roger: Stop it.

Mateo: And I know it's more than just software.

Roger: Stop it.

[Heart rate increases]

Mateo: Oh, are we having a little heart attack here?

Roger: Stop it.

Mateo: Tell me what you're doing. Tell me what he's --

Jake: What --

Mateo: His thing's a little --

Jake: Your monitor just went postal here. I need some room here, Mateo.

Mateo: Yeah, sorry. His oxygen fell off there.

Jake: I need you to stay back out of the way. Hang on, hang on here. What were you doing in here that got you so worked up, huh? Roger, you're going to have to stay calm, all right? Your heart rate is out of control.

[Heart rate decreases]

Jake: You okay? Is it better?

Roger: Yeah. Yeah.

Jake: Mateo, what did you say to him that -- just breathe deep.

Erica: Well, isn't it obvious?

Chris: Isn't what obvious?

Erica: No one killed Frankie. Frankie killed herself. She was obviously very disturbed, and I'm sure that once she saw how upset she made Bianca, she -- it's awful. It's just awful.

Chris: Excuse me.

Erica: I didn't even realize that I still was holding that.

[Chris sighs]

Chris: This is Agent Stamp. Right. Look, I'm at 25 White Oaks Drive. I'm at the scene of a shooting. No. No. DOA. Yeah, I'll be here.

Erica: What are you doing?

Chris: Looking for an entry wound, possible exit if there is one.

Erica: What -- why are you looking at her hands like that?

Chris: I'm looking for traces of gunpowder, Erica. If she shot herself, then they'll be there.

Erica: I see. I knew right away, you know, that Bianca was going to be hurt by this girl. But in my wildest imagination, I never dreamed of anything like this. Oh, I'm so glad that it wasn't Bianca who walked in on her like this. I'm so glad that Bianca didn't see Frankie like this.

Chris: And you did? Why don't you tell me what happened, Erica?

Erica: I drove up.

Chris: Anyone in the house?

Erica: No.

Chris: Anyone at all?

Erica: No, no one.

Chris: Any cars in the driveway?

Erica: No, none whatsoever. It was very deserted, as a matter of fact. And I didn't see anyone on the road, either, not anybody at all. What are you doing?

Chris: Doing what I always do when I enter a room with a dead body, Erica -- checking for signs of foul play.

Erica: But I told you -- she killed herself.

Chris: How do you know that?

Erica: Why are you being like this? You're being odd, suspicious of me.

Chris: Oh, Erica. You walk into a room and you find your daughter's girlfriend dead of a gunshot wound and the first thing you do is you pick up the gun and the second thing you do is you call me and you don't call the police.

Erica: Well, of course -- because I was very shaken and because I knew that you would know what to do.

Chris: "To do"? "To do" what?

Erica: Why are you looking at me like that?

Chris: I think you need to make another call.

Erica: What are you talking about? To whom?

Chris: A lawyer.

Hayley: So you were saying that you -- you got, you got, you got what I need?

Ryan: Yeah, it just sort of came to me at work today.

Hayley: Huh. Where are you working?

Ryan: At RCW again.

Hayley: Since when?

Ryan: I just went back. Liza needed a little time off and asked if I could help her out, and I need the distraction, you know?

Hayley: I think that's great.

Ryan: Yeah.

Hayley: I really do. How is the old icebox?

Ryan: Thanks --

Hayley: Cold as ever?

Ryan: Yeah. Well, kind of. It's in need of something light and happy.

Hayley: Yeah, I'll bet.

Ryan: So, Hayley, the phone is ringing off the hook. Everybody wants to know when you're coming back to the show.

Hayley: Oh. That's nice, yeah. I heard about that, and I --

Ryan: No, I'm serious. Why don't you think about coming back, like now?

Hayley: Well, because I'm on maternity leave, Ryan.

Ryan: So? Come back part-time. Really. You could two weeks of shows on parenthood and then take two weeks off.

Hayley: What is this?

Ryan: This is a pitch. What do you say, you like it?

Hayley: No, I'm surprised. I don't know where this is coming from.

Ryan: Well, you mean -- you said to me that, you know, you weren't crazy about hanging around the house all the time. It was kind of getting to you.

Hayley: Yeah, I know, but do you think the answer to my problems is, like, you know, going back to work? Don't you think that would add to my stress level?

Ryan: Well, I thought maybe -- I don't know -- it would help. You could focus on things that you're going through right now. It would help you deal with it and you know, obviously, it would help the demographics.

Hayley: Ah. Ah, the crux of the issue -- the demographics.

Ryan: No, no, no. I couldn't care less about the ratings. You know that, Hayley. I'm just -- I just want you to be happy. You know? You said you -- you were afraid of being a bad parent, that -- ahem -- you were afraid that your alcoholism wouldn't stay where it is -- silent.

Hayley: Silent? Oh, honey, my alcoholism is never silent. She's always screaming at me, day and night.

Ryan: But isn't it hard to hear her when you're working?

Hayley: Yeah, that's true.

Ryan: Yeah? Am I pushing too hard?

Hayley: No. No, no. I'm -- I'm just -- I'm thinking.

Ryan: What are you thinking about?

Hayley: Hmm. The way it sounds, it sounds like a no-brainer certainly.

Ryan: Yeah, yeah?

Hayley: Yeah. No, are you sure that they would want me to come back there?

Ryan: Please.

Hayley: Raising all kinds of havoc?

Ryan: Of course they would want you to come back there. Come on.

Hayley: Oh, hey.

Ryan: Hey.

Hayley: Mateo, I've got some good news.

Mateo: What's going on?

Hayley: Well, Ryan just came here to pitch to me my early return to "Wave."

Mateo: What?

Hayley: Yeah, I would go back to work, do a whole series of shows on -- on pregnancy. You know, pregnancy and then after-pregnancy and finding a nanny and -- tell him, Ryan, what else.

Ryan: Oh, just, you know --

Mateo: She's not going back to work. You got it?

Jake: He's got dark brown hair and he's wearing a brown suede jacket.

Guard: Sorry, Dr. Martin. I haven't seen him.

Jake: Thanks, Marty.

Greenlee: Jake?

Jake: Hi, there. Your dad's holding up pretty well.

Greenlee: Good.

Jake: But he gets worked up pretty easily.

Greenlee: About what?

Jake: I was over here at the desk and his monitor started going nuts, so I ran to the cube. He's in there talking to Mateo. I ended up having to give him something to bring his heart rate back down.

Greenlee: Mateo Santos?

Jake: Yep.

Greenlee: I didn't even know my father knew who he was. Is Daddy okay now?

Jake: Yeah, yeah, he's stable. We put him in a private room, so if you want to go see him, you can.

Greenlee: I will. But, actually, I came here to talk to you.

Jake: Well, I'm busy. I'm making my rounds.

Greenlee: No, I know. Can you give me a few minutes, though?

Jake: Yeah. Yeah, sure. Have a seat. What's up?

Greenlee: I have to tell you something -- some news.

Jake: What kind of news?

Greenlee: About Leo and me.

Jake: Yeah, I would imagine that you've been talking with him a lot.

Greenlee: Yeah. Yeah, a lot.

Jake: That's good. I'm sure you've got a lot of unfinished business.

Greenlee: Leo proposed to me.

Chris: Erica, you got to calm down.

Erica: Well, I'm about as calm as I can be, you know, in a room with a teenage suicide.

Chris: Would you stop calling it that, please?

Erica: Well, that's what it is.

Chris: No, no, no, no. You don't know that any more than I do.

Erica: What were you whispering over there to the police officers?

Chris: They want to question you and I told them they're going to have to wait till your attorney gets here.

Erica: Well, my attorney is going to be here any minute, but I can't tell them anything more than -- than I've told you already. And why do I need a lawyer? I mean, I walked in on something terrible here. I haven't done anything wrong.

Chris: Erica, you made a couple of big-time mistakes.

Erica: What?

Chris: You called me instead of calling the police first.

Erica: I told you about --

Chris: And you picked up the gun.

Erica: I panicked. I was not thinking clearly.

Chris: Yeah, well, that much I'm already clear on. Now, you listen to me. You can't afford to make any more mistakes. I want you just to stand here and I want you to keep your big yap shut.

Erica: Do you think that I have a reason to be worried?

Chris: Yeah. And as soon as your attorney gets here, you listen to whatever he or she tells you to do. You got that? What? Oh, no. No, no, no. Please tell me you didnít.

Erica: Oh, well, he's my attorney.

Woman: He's at the end of the hall.

Jack: Thank you.

Chris: Oh, no. Tell me you didn't call Jackson Montgomery. For crying out loud, Erica, he's the D.A.!

Erica: Jackson. Oh, Jack. Thank God you're here. This is what I walked in on. This is just so terrible. And -- and I have to go now. But the police officers, they won't let me out of here, so please, will you stop them?

Jack: No, Erica, no --

Erica: Will you just take me home?

Jack: No. You are not going anywhere.

Leo: Bianca! Groundskeeper said you were out here, but isn't it a little bit too late to be riding? Hey!

Leo: Hey, hey, hey. Wake up.

Hayley: Okay, I know, I know that I said I wanted to take the full three-month maternity leave, but just hear me out for a second, okay?

Mateo: Well, what -- it's not what we talked about. You know that?

Hayley: I -- just listen to what I'm saying. We're going to do, like, a whole series of shows -- pregnancy, birth, and the first three months of your new life, right?

Mateo: My wife is not part of this deal. You got to stay away from my family.

Proteus: Your wife, your sons, and your sisters, your mother -- all weak spots, Mr. Santos. And my most trusted associates have no weak spots.

Hayley: And so we'd pick a topic and we'd do the, you know, a series on the one topic and then we have two weeks off and then another topic and two weeks off and they're going to set up a whole -- a whole nursery right there in the studio for the baby.

Ryan: I just thought that it would help Hayley a little bit if she could, you know, get back to work and, well, get out of here and --

Mateo: Are you deaf?

Hayley: Mateo!

Mateo: I said she's not going back to work.

Hayley: She can think for herself, Mateo.

Mateo: Listen, why don't we just let this go, please? You know, I really don't want to say things that I shouldn't say right now, so --

Hayley: You're going to say something that you don't want to say? Like what? Like what else could you possibly say?

Mateo: Like, you know, I'm sick of coming home -- and this is not the first time that I've come home from work -- and I've seen him here in my living room, hovering over you, telling you what he thinks you should do with your life.

Ryan: You know what?

Mateo: Like that.

Ryan: This is now between you two.

Mateo: Yeah, it is between us.

Hayley: I'm sorry.

Ryan: No, no, no! Don't worry about it. I'm out, I'm out. I'm gone.

Hayley: I just want to ask you one thing -- who are you?

Greenlee: I was hoping you'd feel this way.

Greenlee: What?

Jake: What do you mean "what"? You didn't think I'd be happy for you?

Greenlee: You're happy for me? You're happy Leo asked me to marry him?

Jake: Greenlee, this has been your dream for months, and it's finally happened. I mean, you're my friend and I'm happy that Ė that you have gotten something that you've wanted for so long.

Greenlee: That's it?

Jake: What, that's not enough?

Greenlee: Enough?

Jake: What did you expect me to say here?

Greenlee: Jake, I know how you feel about me.

Jake: Greenlee, I told you before that if you crashed that rehearsal dinner that all bets were off.

Greenlee: That's not what I'm talking about and you know it.

Jake: Greenlee, I said that if you went and crashed that party, that everything between us was going to change. And it has. But I think it's a good thing because now you can go off with Leo and you don't have to feel bad about us.

Greenlee: How do you know how I'm going to feel? Hell, how do you know what I'm going to do?

Jake: Greenlee, that's just it. I never know what you're going --

Leo: Jake! I think she hit her head.

Jake: Bianca. Let's get a gurney over here!

Leo: Hurry up, hurry up!

Jake: Get an exam room, stat. Easy, easy. Okay, watch her head, watch her head. What happened?

Leo: I found her on the grounds at the Wildwind. I don't know.

Jake: Was she riding?

Leo: I don't know how long she was out there in the cold, man.

Jake: All right, let's get her in a room right away. Just wait right here.

Leo: Go, go, go, go, go.

Jake: Okay, back this way, down the hall.

Erica: And then -- I called Chris. And that's it, that's really it.

Chris: Erica, I suggest you stop talking right now. Wait for your attorney to get here. I just called in a favor and he's going to get back to me as soon as he can.

Erica: Chris, Jack is a friend of mine and he was my attorney for years, so I can use him as counsel again now, can't I, Jack? I really hope that Opal doesn't just pull into her driveway and see them loading a body into the medical examiner's van. So you believe me, don't you, Jack? Of course you do. Jack? Frankie killed herself.

Jack: Erica, the woman that just escorted Frankie's body out of this room is Diana Minton. She's the medical examiner.

Erica: And?

Jack: And according to her preliminary examination, there's not a chance in hell that Frankie committed suicide.

Erica: What?

Chris: Just calm down.

Erica: I am not going to calm down! I know what I saw! I walked into this room, Frankie was dead on the floor with a gun in her hand! Nobody else was here but me! Jack?

Jack: I'm going to need you to come down for some questioning.

Erica: What?

Jack: I'm sorry, but that's the way it has to be.

Erica: You're sorry? What do you mean you're sorry? What are you sorry for?

Chris: Erica, please stop talking.

Erica: Am I under arrest?

Hayley: I swear on my life, Mateo, I don't know who you are. You are unrecognizable.

Mateo: Calm down.

Hayley: Do you understand that?

Mateo: Just calm down.

Hayley: I will not calm down!

Mateo: I was just being protective.

Hayley: You were just being a bully to Ryan and a sexist pig to me, and who the hell do you think you are trying to tell me what I can and cannot do?

Mateo: You said you didn't want to go back to work when Lorenzo was born.

Hayley: I said that I wanted to go back to work after my maternity leave part-time. Part-time, Mateo -- don't pretend like that conversation never happened. Now, Liza thinks that it's fine for me to work part-time at the studio. Why can't I? I can bring Lorenzo to the studio with me.

Mateo: I don't want you dragging my son down to that studio.

Hayley: Your son?

Mateo: Yes, I want you and him home where you belong, where you can be safe. Is that so awful?

Hayley: Do you think that I can't take care of Lorenzo outside of the condo? Is that it? Is that what you're saying?

Mateo: No, no.

Hayley: Well, when exactly did you lose such faith in me? When did that happen?

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

Hayley: You don't trust me with Lorenzo. You don't trust me with my son. You don't trust me with my son --

Mateo: I --

Hayley: You don't trust me with Ryan.

Mateo: Trust you. I --

Hayley: No. No, you don't trust me. And you have a hell of a way of showing it.

Erica's voice: This is Erica Kane and you've reached my cell phone voice mail. Please leave me a message after the beep.

[Machine beeps]

Leo: Erica, it's Leo. Listen -- well, I found Bianca and she's -- she's hurt, so I need you to come down to the E.R. as soon as you get this message, all right? Well, that's going to totally freak her out.

Greenlee: She needs to be here, Leo.

Leo: So did you go see your dad?

Greenlee: Yeah, I peeked in. He's still sleeping.

Leo: God, I wish that Jake would tell us what's wrong with Bianca, if she's going to be okay.

Greenlee: Listen, he is the best doctor in this hospital. She'll be fine. I didn't come here to see my father tonight -- just to be honest.

Leo: You didn't?

Greenlee: I wanted to tell Jake that you proposed to me.

Leo: Hmm. Well, that's funny.

Greenlee: Why?

Leo: Well, I mean, you ran over here to tell Jake that I asked you, but I don't remember you answering the question. Does Jake know that, too?

Greenlee: Leo, do you really want to talk about this in the emergency room?

Leo: Well, you obviously donít. Look -- okay, I get it. I do.

Greenlee: Besides, you're still really upset about Bianca.

Leo: Jake is going to tell us if she's okay, right?

Greenlee: Of course he will. Not only is he just a great doctor, he's also a really great --

Leo: Listen, Greenlee, if you're going to tell me that he's a great person, I'm going to have to be admitted here on one of those gurneys, too.

Greenlee: Okay.

Leo: I know. I know we've been apart for a long time.

Greenlee: Yeah.

Leo: And I've been pretty rotten to you pretty much that whole time.

Greenlee: Yeah, you have.

Leo: I just want you to know that I really regret the way I treated you.

Greenlee: Leo, honey, you don't have to do this.

Leo: No, I think I do. I never want to treat you badly.

Greenlee: People who are in love usually donít.

Leo: You know, I had this moment when I was driving Bianca over here. I mean, she was laying there unconscious, you know? She's just a kid. She's gone through so much in this last year. I mean, she lost her father, she's -- you know, all this other stuff came out, so to speak and -- I don't know, I just thought of you.

Greenlee: Why?

Leo: Well, because you've lost a lot, too, this year.

Greenlee: Looks like I might be getting some of that back.

Leo: You know, when I actually let my mind go to where I wanted it to go when I was still with Laura --

Greenlee: Me?

Leo: Yeah. I would say to myself, "No, I don't want what I used to have with Greenlee."

Greenlee: You didn't? Leo --

Leo: Not that I didn't want to be with you. Of course I wanted to be with you. It's just -- I don't know. Ultimately, what we had  didn't work. Right?

Greenlee: True. Remember when we used to think we had all the answers?

Leo: I think that we still do have them all, so -- well, the important ones, anyway.

Greenlee: You weren't sure if it was enough.

Leo: Now I'm sure.

[Leo growls]

Greenlee: Leo. Leo Du Pres, I've been seduced in a lot of places, but in a trauma center?

Leo: Hmm, you like it?

Greenlee: It's a little kinky.

Leo: You like it?

Greenlee: It's kind of working for me.

Leo: Good.

Greenlee: Good. You know, you were a big hero walking up here with Bianca.

Leo: Yeah, I was, wasn't I? I was like Boy Wonder.

Jake: Bianca? Thanks. Bianca? Hey, how you feeling? Yeah, I thought I saw you coming around a little bit. You're in the ER. Leo brought you in here. I don't think you have any broken bones or internal damage, but we're going to make sure, okay? You know you fell off your horse? And what were you doing out riding alone so late in the dark? Hmm?

Jack: No, Erica, I'm not arresting you. I'm the DA, not a police officer.

Erica: Well, then, why -- why is he looking at me?

Jack: I'm going to ask you to take a ride with Ofc. Hoffman here. As I say, I need to get you down to the station house for some questioning.

Erica: Jack, don't be ridiculous. I've already told you the whole story, the whole truth.

Jack: Okay, please. Just come quietly, please?

Erica: Why are you talking to me like I'm some sort of a criminal, Jack? What is this?

Chris: All right, I've had enough of this. I would like a word alone with my client now.

Jack: With your client?

Chris: My client. You know I'm a lawyer. Now, as of right now, I am officially Ms. Kane's counsel. We clear?

Ryan: I was -- you know, I just pulled over, looking at the moon, and I saw Mateo speed by, so I came back.

Hayley: Come on in.

Ryan: I'm guessing things didn't go so well after I left.

Hayley: You don't even want to know.

Ryan: You know what? I'm sorry. It was my bad. I shouldn't even have brought it up in the first place, and if I had, I should have given you some time so you could talk to your husband about it. I should have.

Hayley: No, Ryan, donít. It's not -- no, it's me. It's -- it's me.

Ryan: What do you mean it's you?

Hayley: I keep blaming myself.

Ryan: You didn't do anything wrong -- why?

Hayley: Because.

Ryan: You didn't do anything.

Hayley: Because I think that -- I think I bring this out in people.

Ryan: Bring what out?

Hayley: Do you remember how I told you that I didn't want to be the kind of parents like I had -- you know, secretive and controlling, manipulative?

Ryan: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hayley: Well, Mateo never was before. But he is now.

Ryan: Well, maybe he's just going through some stuff right now, about stuff at work that he doesn't want to talk to you about.

Hayley: No. No, he's not. It's me. I made him into this somehow. I don't know how, but the scary and sad part is, is like although I know it's Mateo, you know, and he's acting so differently, I still recognize the behavior, you know?

Ryan: How so?

Hayley: Mateo's acting like my father.

[Key turns in door]

Greenlee: Leo, I'll marry you.

Leo: Oh, my --

Leo: I'm never going to let you regret this.

Jake: Bianca, why were you out riding alone at night? Really?

Bianca: Frankie.

Chris: Jackson, I'm with the bureau and I know when somebody runs a security check on me -- like the one you did a few months back. So you know I have a degree in criminal law and you know that I've passed the bar. But my friend is taking a little bit too long to call back, so you're stuck with me.

Jack: Erica, like a friend, I am advising you, get somebody else to represent you. This man may be a lawyer, but he's not a practicing attorney.

Erica: Jackson, will you and your friend excuse us, please? My attorney and I need to have a private discussion -- alone. I mean it.

Jack: Do us all a favor and make sure she gets to the station house.

Chris: You have my word.

Erica: Why didn't you tell me you were a lawyer?

Chris: Because I didn't think it was important. At least not until now.

Erica: Well, this is outrageous because I don't -- I mean, I don't know what to do with this. I -- I don't know how to handle this.

Chris: Give me a dollar.

Erica: What did you say?

Chris: Do you want to retain me as your counsel, at least for now?

Erica: Yes.

Chris: Give me a dollar. Come on.

Erica: All right.

Chris: As of now, I'm officially your attorney. We share attorney/client privilege. So now you can tell me the truth.

Erica: I have told you the truth, Chris.

Chris: No, no, no. You haven't told me anything, Erica. The second I walked into this room, I knew Frankie didn't shoot herself, and the medical examiner thinks it's a homicide and she'll confirm that by morning after an autopsy. Please. Somebody shot that poor kid, left her in here to die. And you know who did it.

Erica: What?

Chris: Erica. Just tell me the truth. Tell me the truth and trust me. You have to.

Erica: How -- how can I do that? I mean -- I mean, what if --

Chris: You have to trust me. You can trust me with anything now because I love you. Okay?

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

Greenlee: I told Leo I'd marry him.

Jake: I'm really happy for you, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Liar.

Mateo: Here's to all the things that I can do with you and not my wife.

Liza: Adam, we need to talk about us.

Erica: I haven't told you everything.
