>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Greenlee: See that bruise? That's where Vanessa stabbed me. What, did you think Jake and I were taking a cruise on the Love Boat?

Anna: What's this?

David: What is it?

Anna: A used syringe.

Dixie: Don't worry, little one. I'll guard you with my life.

Ryan: You're my father?

Chris: Ryan, wait.

Dixie: Oh. It's so weird drinking milk again. Warm -- ugh. But it's supposed to help us relax, and that's what we need, right? I just wish I knew where J.R. was. He's going to come home soon, though, and we'll talk and I'll explain it to him and he'll understand.

[Car approaches]

Dixie: Thank God.

Dixie: Hey, J.R. Hi. I was worried. Tad, hi. Thank you. Where did you find him?

J.R.: He didnít.

Tad: After I got your call, I jumped in the car; I tore all over town looking for him. It wasn't until I got home that I realized --

J.R.: I ambushed him.

Tad: He was at the house waiting for me.

Dixie: Why did you run off like that?

J.R.: Like you didn't need room to pack, Mom.

Tad: Pack?

J.R.: I didn't want to be in your way.

Tad: What's he talking about? Are you going somewhere?

Leo: This is us, Greenlee. This is me and you.

Greenlee: Leo, I'm so sorry.

Leo: I knew you were going to come back to me.

Greenlee: Finding out about your mother and what she did --

Leo: It's okay. It's okay.

Greenlee: Leo --

Leo: No, it's okay because I can deal with it, you know?

Greenlee: Maybe you're in shock.

Leo: I can because I love you.

Greenlee: You -- you can't expect --

Leo: No, Vanessa can't come between us, Greenlee --

Greenlee: Leo, stop it!

Leo: I need you in my life right now.

Greenlee: You've been hurting me.

Leo: I know, but I didn't have all the information.

Greenlee: You called me a pathetic, needy slut.

Leo: I never said "slut." I never said "slut," and I had just found you with him again.

Greenlee: And do you think that makes it okay?

Leo: I'm sorry, okay? I apologize.

Greenlee: Do you have any idea how much you've hurt me? Don't you get what I'm going through?

Leo: My mother tried to kill you, I know. Because you got in her way and -- Greenlee, you survived. And, of course, when I find you, I rip you apart. But Vanessaís just a gift that keeps on giving. She set us up.

Greenlee: Yes.

Leo: She made me think that you and Jake -- that you and Jake -- damn her.

Anna: Ah -- this goes right to Stamp.

David: I might be able to tell what's in it.

Anna: So will the lab. If you get your prints anywhere near this --

David: I'll be careful.

Anna: It would be almost impossible to prove that you weren't Proteus. You understand me?

David: Vanessa's prints is probably all over it.

Anna: Yeah. Probably.

David: I wonder who she had here and what the hell she did to them.

J.R.: I didn't tell him anything.

Dixie: Obviously not.

J.R.: I'm not your P.R. man.

Tad: Would somebody like to tell me what's going on?

J.R.: Oh, I'm sure Mom would love to fill you in. I'll be in my room, okay?

Dixie: J.R., no, stay with us.

J.R.: You're on your own now, Mom -- just like you wanted.

Tad: How shattering is this?

Dixie: It's not.

Tad: Good, I'm glad to hear it. So, fill me in.

Dixie: J.R. is upset because I told him that I'm going away for a while.

Tad: Yeah, hence the packing comment. Go on.

Dixie: Well, I just decided that my life needs an overhaul.

Tad: And the divorce wasn't enough for you?

Dixie: I'm going to take a six-month course in Europe. J.R. doesn't understand.

Tad: Well, I do. Six months in Europe? Probably has something to do with that -- you know, that -- his life, that girl that he likes so much in American studies class. He probably doesn't like the idea of leaving her for six months.

Dixie: I told J.R. that I'm -- I want to go alone.

Tad: Why?

Dixie: Well, because, you know, I'm going to be studying and settling in.

Tad: Well, okay. Well, then on the other hand, you know, I probably would have given a lot for six months in Europe at his age.

Dixie: You just said he wouldn't want to leave his girlfriend.

Tad: It doesn't matter. The point is you can't just shut people out. It's no wonder J.R.'s upset.

Dixie: Since when do teenage boys want to spend all their time with their mothers?

Tad: I'm not saying he does.

Dixie: He loves Pine Valley. He has friends here. Adam is here. You're here.

Tad: Is that the problem? Are you going to Europe to get away from me?

Dixie: No.

Tad: Good, I'm glad to hear it. So don't go. He's clearly upset. Just postpone your trip.

Dixie: This isn't some whim, okay? I've given this a lot of thought. I need to discover who I am again. I need to be alone.

Tad: Okay, okay, don't, you know, lose your temper.

Dixie: Well, I can't help it. This is just not going the way I planned.

Tad: Maybe because you're not being honest.

Dixie: You don't have to make it harder on me.

Tad: I don't see how I can. Do you honestly expect me to believe you're going to leave your son, your home, everything you love, just so you can go off and find yourself? Maybe we should, you know, take this from the top.

Dixie: If you're not going to believe me, what can I do?

Tad: You can tell me the truth. Why would you leave?

Leo: If I could pitch Vanessa into hell right now, I swear to God I would. What, do you think I'm going to hit her? Greenlee, I would never hit you.

Greenlee: I know you wouldn't.

Leo: Why am I even upset or -- or surprised? I mean, it's just Vanessa being Vanessa, right? So, tell me, Jake, what was it like having nice, normal parents growing up, huh?

Jake: I was lucky, Leo.

Leo: You had two parents who cared about you and encouraged you, not for what you could do for them but because they loved you, right? What a concept.

Greenlee: Leo, it's not your fault that Vanessaís a totally corrupt mess.

Leo: Yeah, but it's my fault that I didn't break away from her years ago.

Greenlee: She's insidious.

Leo: I was her accomplice from the day I was born, Greenlee. She used me as a pawn to play people for money, getting sympathy by dangling me in front of people before I could even talk.

Greenlee: But she can't do that anymore.

Leo: No, she's -- conning people is our special game. We actually invented stories, stealing from nice, caring people.

Greenlee: You got past that.

Leo: When I came to Pine Valley, I distanced myself from her. When she killed Paolo and tried to blame it on me, that -- that was it between us. It was over. But I guess I just didn't cut myself off enough from her as much as I should have.

Greenlee: Don't do this to yourself, Leo.

Leo: She cried and she trembled. I went running back for damage control. I mean, she -- I actually helped her get rid of her chauffeur's corpse after she killed him.

Greenlee: You didn't know.

Leo: Well, I didn't know that Larryís body was in the trunk after I tried to take it out to her car or whatever. But I knew she was toxic. So why did I keep getting suckered in?

Greenlee: Because she's your mother.

Leo: Well, she's Davidís mother, too, and he wanted to send her off into a padded cell, but not me. I was so convinced that she didn't do it that I convinced him not to do it. She denied killing Larry. The cops dropped the charges, and I believed her story.

Jake: Leo, do you know that your mother killed that guy now?

Leo: I'd imagine that she drugged Larry the same way she drugged Paolo and you and Greenlee. You know, if I just would have figured all this out earlier, Larry and Paolo might still be alive. And we might be at home, getting ready to go out for dinner or just staying in. The bitch did it to me again. She did it to me again. My whole --

[Leo yells]

Erica: Oh, my God! Chris! Chris!

Kendall: Ryan, were you hurt?

Ryan: No, no, just Chris.

Erica: Chris? Can you speak to me? Chris, stay with me. Chris, stay with me. Oh. Okay. Okay. You're going to be all right. You're going to be all right. Kendall, call 911! Get an ambulance!

Kendall: Okay.

Ryan: Is he going to be all right? Is he --

Erica: Yes, he's going to be all right. He's breathing. He's going to be fine. It's just the loss of blood. He lost some blood, that's all. Chris, you're going to be fine.

Ryan: The shot came from over here someplace.

Erica: No, Ryan, we don't need you to be hurt, too.

Ryan: We'd all be dead if the shooter was -- where is he?

Mateo: I went after him, he's gone. Oh, my God!

Ryan: Take it easy. It's all right. He's going to be okay. He's going to be all right.

Erica: Where is the ambulance?

Kendall: The ambulance is on its way.

Erica: I can't stop the bleeding. I can't stop it.

Ryan: You're going to make it. You're going to make it.

Dixie: I hate it when you do that.

Tad: Do what? See right through you?

Dixie: When you pull the old "I know you better than you know yourself" card. Nobody likes it a know-it-all.

Tad: So I'm right?

Dixie: No, you're wrong.

Tad: I'm wrong?

Dixie: Everything I just said before was true. You want me to fill in all the blanks? Fine.

Tad: Thank you. I would appreciate that. Am I going to need a drink for this?

Dixie: I don't know. Maybe you will.

Tad: So, what are you -- what the hell is this? Milk?

Dixie: Yep.

Tad: You hate milk.

Dixie: I was trying to relax.

Tad: You know, if I didn't know you better, I'd say you were having a breakdown. Well, I'm going to have some seltzer. You want any?

Dixie: No, thank you.

Tad: Okay. Go ahead. I'm ready.

Dixie: Okay. The last few years have been rather difficult, agreed?

Tad: Oh, yeah.

Dixie: I'm not trying to erase the past. I'm simply trying to rise above it.

Tad: Okay.

Dixie: I want to feel free to explore what I want to do with my life. What?

Tad: Why do I feel like I'm about to be attacked by Dr. Phil?

Dixie: Maybe you deserve it.

Tad: Yeah, I guess maybe I do. So, by all means, go on. You were saying that you're leaving to nurture your inner child.

Dixie: Oh, for God's sake, don't insult me.

Tad: I'm sorry. Move over. Come on. I'm just trying to make sense of this.

Dixie: Well, maybe you're not supposed to make sense of it. Maybe you're just supposed to accept it.

Tad: I am supposed to -- if I don't understand what's going on, you can't hold it against me. You know something? You've been all over the map lately. I mean, honestly, what was that little, you know, field trip down to the islands there, you know, for our guerrilla divorce? Wasn't that supposed to give you some sense of closure?

Dixie: Well, was that before or after I nearly died? Look, the last year, we both learned how precious and fleeting life can be.

Tad: Yes, absolutely. So, by all means, you know, turn your back on everything you know to hop across the pond.

Dixie: It's not your call. It's my life.

Tad: It's J.R.'s life.

Dixie: I'm thinking about J.R.

Tad: Yeah, I know, I know. This is the part where you tell me that he's your son, not mine, right?

Dixie: I was not going to say that.

Tad: For God's sake, Dixie, think about it. Do you really have to go halfway around the world to do a little soul-searching? Isn't that a bit strange?

Dixie: You know, I don't need you questioning every move I make, ridiculing my decisions. You don't have any right, and I have the divorce papers to prove it.

Tad: You're right.

Dixie: No --

Tad: No, no, you're absolutely right.

Dixie: I'm sorry. I don't want to fight.

Tad: I don't, either. You remember the last time we were alone together in this room? We didn't fight then.

Dixie: No, we didnít.

Tad: Kind of ironic, don't you think? I'd actually come over to tell you that we finally had a court date for our divorce hearing.

Dixie: Yeah, I remember.

Tad: One minute you were crying, I was holding you, and the next minute I'm kissing you. It was too bad. You know, for a moment there, one beautiful moment, I was convinced the divorce was never going to be a part of future, that we managed to make some kind of fresh, wonderful start. We always used to be able to handle whatever life handed to us, together.

Leo: You owe me, Jake.

Jake: I do?

Leo: Yeah. Well, look where you are, thanks to me. Who you've got in your arms, thanks to me and my mother. You know, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if -- just forget it.

Jake: Greenlee, just give him a chance to cool off.

Leo: What's that? Did you say something to me, Jake?

Jake: No, Leo, I didnít. But if I did, I'd make sure you heard it. Since I seem to have your attention, I'm going to let you know right now -- your mother's going to get what she deserves. When we get back to Pine Valley, I'm going straight to the police.

Ryan: Looks like there's a little less blood. I think the wound's slowed down a little bit.

Erica: Oh, God! Kendall, where's the ambulance?

Kendall: I'll call again.

[Car approaches]

Erica: Oh, thank God! They're here! Hang on, Darling. Help's here.

David: What's going on?

Erica: You're going to be okay. Chris Stamp was shot!

Mateo: You know what's going on! He gets shot, and you just happen on the scene?

David: Let me see what I can do for him. Somebody get my medical bag! It's in the back seat of my car!

Anna: David's not involved in this.

Mateo: He's not involved?

Anna: No.

Mateo: It's a little too convenient, don't you think?

Anna: No. I've been with him all night. We were on our way over here to tell Chris that we do have a solid lead on Proteus.

Mateo: He could have ordered the hit.

Anna: He didn't order the hit. What are you talking about? He's not Proteus. I can't prove it to you, but I will. Please, just trust me on this one. Did you see which direction the shots came from?

Mateo: Over by that alley. Come on.

Erica: Yes. Yes, Dr. David Hayward is with him now. And he needs a --

David: Thoracotomy set.

Erica: A thoracotomy set. He needs a thoracotomy set in the ambulance. Please, tell them to hurry. Please hurry.

Ryan: Wait a second, what's that for?

David: The bullet must have grazed his heart.

Erica: No!

David: It tore one of its vessels.

Ryan: Is that bad? Is he going to be all right?

David: The sac surrounding his heart is filling up with blood.

Erica: No! He's not going to die!

David: I'm going to have make an incision through the pericardium to release some of the blood there.

Erica: You can't do that! You can't make another hole in his chest!

David: I'll be doing it through the wound.

Ryan: Well, shouldn't we wait for the ambulance to show up?

David: We don't have time.

Erica: Well, can't we just take him to the hospital ourselves?

David: If we wait, he's not going to make it.

Ryan: All right, then what are we waiting for? Let's do it.

Erica: Do it, David. Do it.

[Sirens]

Erica: Please, save him, David. Please, save him.

David: All right, I feel the pericardium.

Ryan: You're going to be all right.

Erica: Did you fix it? Is he going to be all right?

David: He's got a chance now.

Erica: Oh, please, God. Please don't take him. Please. Let him live.

Greenlee: Jake -- Leo, what are you doing? Stay away from him.

Leo: I said I wouldn't hit you. I never mentioned him.

Jake: Leo, that's the only free shot you're ever going to get with me. If we try to kill each other, we're never going to get off this island.

Leo: Oh, you got it all figured out, don't you? What, are you going to save us all now, Jake?

Greenlee: Have you lost your mind?

Leo: No, worse -- I lost you. And you got what you've been looking for for months, didn't you?

Greenlee: First, you're violent, now -- go, Leo. Get off my island.

Leo: This is the answer to all your prayers, right, Jake? Vanessa targets you both, and not only am I the bad guy with the mother from hell, but now you get to play the hero again, right?

Jake: You've got one active imagination, Leo.

Leo: Oh, you know, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if you worked on Vanessa with this one, you know, staged it.

Greenlee: Jake cares about me.

Leo: Well, of course he says that, Greenlee.

Greenlee: It's the truth. I wasn't his mark, and I love him for that.

Leo: So, did you question it every time I said I loved you? You know, the way we started out? Is that why you ran to him every time we hit a rough patch? We never had a chance.

Greenlee: Leo --

Leo: No, just leave me alone, okay? I get the picture now. I get it.

Jake: Green -- let him go this time.

Greenlee: I guess I better.

Tad: It's always been my dream -- is to be with you. Finally, I thought we had a lock on it.

Dixie: Until I kicked you out.

Tad: Well, yeah, that was a bit of a kick in the teeth. Especially since I was expecting you to give me a second chance. Or third or fourth -- I forget. Which is it?

Dixie: You know, I don't know.

Tad: Did I really make it so easy to lose count? I mean, how can two people love each other so much and still lose one another?

Dixie: That's a tough one.

Tad: Yeah.

Dixie: Well, Leslie played a part. So did David.

Tad: Uh-uh. They couldn't have torn us apart if we felt strong about each other. The truth is I think what we had had started to fall apart before then.

Dixie: Maybe.

Tad: It happened when you were pregnant. Remember, you told me, I freaked out?

Dixie: Yeah, you were worried.

Tad: Worried? No, I was terrified. Dixie, come on. You know, honestly, the thought of you having a baby? Carrying a child? Giving birth? I mean, with your blood pressure, with your heart? That -- that could have easily killed you.

Dixie: Well, it turned out you didn't have to worry.

Tad: That's the problem, isn't it? Because, after you miscarried --

Dixie: Don't -- you don't have to say that.

Tad: Yeah, I do because it's the truth. It's the truth. Deep down inside, I was relieved because I knew you couldn't be hurt. No, I mean, that you wouldn't -- you wouldn't die, that you would be all right. You knew that, didn't you?

Dixie: Yeah, I did.

Tad: And it didn't matter. Because you still haven't forgiven me for it.

Dixie: I loved our baby. I just didn't understand why you didn't.

Tad: It's not a question of loving our baby; it is a question of loving you, of being terrified of losing you. I did anyway because, to you, I chose you over our baby. That's when -- that's when something snapped.

Dixie: Maybe things just change, you know? Maybe people just change.

Tad: Well, is there anything I can do about it? Anything at all? I mean, is this thing always going to be there between us?

Dixie: I don't think either one of us is ever going to forget it.

Tad: No. I guess not. Because you know something? Even if I could change it and go back, you know what I would do?

Dixie: You canít. You can't change it.

Tad: I would make the same decision. I'm sorry, but I would. Even knowing what it would do to us, the road it was going to put us on. I would always -- I will always choose your life first. I'm sorry, honey, but I guess I just love you too damn much.

David: We got a gunshot victim here! Penetrating chest wound. He was tamponading. I performed a pericardial window on-site.

Paramedic: Yeah, probably kept him alive.

David: We need to get him to the O.R. Prep him, stat.

Joe: All right, prep the patient. Get him to the O.R. Dr. Jacobson's on the way.

David: Stamp can't wait, Joe.

Joe: He will be here.

David: He's not here now, but I am.

Joe: Yes, you've been dismissed from the hospital.

Erica: For God's sake, Joe. David saved Chris! He can save him!

Joe: He's no longer on staff, Erica.

Erica: Whatever happened, whatever political gaffe he did, I mean, forget it. Let him do this now. He can save Chris! Or let us take whatever we need, let David operate in the parking garage because I don't give a damn where or how, let him do this now!

Joe: The O.R.'s ready for an emergency thoracotomy. Dr. Hayward will scrub in. All right, move!

David: All right, all right. Type and cross six units. Get it to the O.R., stat!

Erica: I love you, Chris.

Chris' voice: I'm your father, Ryan. I am.

Ryan: My father.

Officer: And how many shots were fired?

Ryan: One.

Kendall: That's the third time you've asked that. Maybe I should take notes for you.

Officer: I'll get to you in a minute.

Kendall: Gee, something to look forward to.

Officer: If Agent Stamp hadn't moved in, you'd be under the knife. So, why were you the target?

Ryan: I don't know.

Officer: You don't have any idea why someone would want you dead?

Ryan: No.

Officer: Do you have enemies?

Ryan: No.

Officer: Any disgruntled co-workers? Employees? A romance gone south?

Ryan: No, everybody just loves me.

Officer: Somebody squeezed the trigger at one of ours. I don't take that lightly.

Ryan: Neither do I.

Officer: Well, you better do some more thinking because if Agent Stamp dies, I'm coming after you.

Kendall: Ryan, no, no. This is not going to help Chris. Next time, I won't save you.

Officer: One of our men is --

Kendall: Listen, big man -- Chris Stamp means a lot to these people. Not just because they're members of the same club. That man and that woman love the guy, okay? So just back the hell off.

Officer: You want to be charged with obstruction of this investigation?

Kendall: If you'll drag me out of here to press the charges, bring it on.

Officer: Why are you so anxious to get rid of me?

Kendall: Because you're a jerk.

Anna: I'm sorry. Agent --

Officer: Foster, Ms. Devane.

Anna: Yes, it is. Yeah, I'm sorry. Agent Foster, this is Mateo Santos.

Mateo: Hi.

Anna: He's been working with Chris Stamp. We just came from the scene of the shooting.

Kendall: Excuse me.

Agent Foster: Is the shooter in custody?

Anna: No, no.

Agent Foster: I've been interviewing Mr. Lavery. He's not cooperating.

Anna: That's okay, I'll talk to him. I need a full workup on this from forensics. I need a print check, contents analysis, the works. But I need it quite soon.

Agent Foster: All right, I'll see if I can get a rush on it.

Anna: Okay. Thank you.

Mateo: Thanks.

Anna: Can I talk to you alone for a minute? Is that all right?

Kendall: I don't think it's a good time.

Ryan: No, no, it's fine. I'd like to them.

Kendall: Okay.

Anna: Mateo told me about the disc that Chris was trying to get from you when he got shot.

Mateo: Yeah, and since that sniper was after you, we're sure he was on Proteus' payroll.

Anna: And he's probably trying to get after you and the disc.

Mateo: So give up the disc before anybody --

Ryan: Take it. Take it. I want Proteus behind bars. I want him dead. I want anything. Just take it.

Kendall: How are you doing?

Erica: I'm fine. It's Chris.

Kendall: Can I get you anything?

Erica: Unless you can find somebody who can tell us how Chris' surgery is going.

Kendall: He's real tough. He'll pull through.

Erica: He just -- he lost a lot of blood.

Kendall: They'll transfuse him.

Erica: It's just not fair. He's such a good man. I mean, he can be very difficult and distant, and God knows he's secretive, but he's so brave. I swear, if he lives, I will love him with all my heart for the rest of my life.

Erica: Joe? Joe, is the surgery over? Is Chris all right?

Joe: We still have a way to go, Erica. Chris needs a lot of blood.

Ryan: I'll give blood.

Joe: You know your blood type?

Ryan: AB-positive, same as Chris. Am I right?

Joe: Yes. How did you know that?

Ryan: Lucky guess.

Dixie: I know I said I would call you as soon as J.R. got in, but Tad has been here and I haven't had a chance. You know what? J.R. doesnít want to speak to you right now, so I'll call you in the morning. No. No, Adam, I'll call you in the morning. Good night. Irritating.

Tad: So -- where were we before the phone rang and you insisted on picking it up? Ah, yes, something about my undying love.

Dixie: Tad, nobody has ever loved me the way you have, but you're not what I need right now.

Tad: Well, couldn't you at least lie a little, for my sake?

Dixie: You see through lies, remember?

Tad: Yeah. Me and my big mouth.

Dixie: Look, I don't need you making decisions for me. I need to take control and make my own decisions.

Tad: Okay, okay. Nobody's -- you know, I got that part. I'm not trying to make your decisions for you, not anymore. So, what decisions do you have to make?

Dixie: You know, my decision to go away for a while seems to have upset you and J.R. pretty good.

Tad: Yeah. You really think now is the time to do something like this?

Dixie: Tad, stop it. Don't try to talk me out of it.

Tad: I'm not trying to talk you out of it. I'm just saying, you know, it's so soon after -- you nearly died a month ago.

Dixie: And I'm fine now, okay?

Tad: You shouldn't be traveling to someplace like Europe alone.

Dixie: I'm not going to Europe alone. I'm going with Lanie. I'm going to stay with her.

Tad: Well, you never said anything about your sister.

Dixie: Well, I'm sorry. And I have a doctor over there, too, okay?

Tad: Yeah. A referral from Hayward, right?

Dixie: Yes, as a matter of fact. Look, I'm going to try to get J.R. to accept the fact that I'm leaving.

Tad: Good luck.

Dixie: But I would like you to look after him. If you don't mind.

Tad: You don't even have to ask.

Dixie: Well, he's going to need you a lot more when I'm gone.

Tad: There's nothing I wouldn't do for him or you.

Dixie: Tad, don't.

Tad: Don't what? I just said I'd look after J.R. for you.

Dixie: Look, I -- I would like you to go now.

Tad: Now?

Dixie: Yes.

Tad: It's so soon. Will I see you before you leave?

Dixie: I have things to do. I have to make arrangements for our trip.

Tad: "Our" trip? What are you talking about? You said you were traveling alone. You have company?

Tad: You just told J.R. that you're going solo. Now you got company?

Dixie: No, no, I donít.

Tad: Dixie, what is it? I mean, is Lanie coming over and then flying back with you? Is that what's going on?

Dixie: What did I just say, Tad? No.

Tad: You and Hayward aren't, like -- I mean, he's not going to take some kind of sabbatical --

Dixie: No, Tad, I'm tired, okay? J.R.'s mad at me. You're giving me a hard time. So, I used the wrong word. It's a miracle I can form a sentence.

Tad: Okay, I didn't mean to accuse you --

Dixie: Yeah, you did.

Tad: Well, I just don't like the idea of you and Hayward, you know --

Dixie: Yeah, I know. That's not secret.

Tad: I'm sorry I mentioned it.

Dixie: Me, too. Listen, I'm exhausted. Thank you for bringing J.R. home.

Tad: You should -- you know, if we spoke to him together, maybe he'd feel differently about you leaving.

Dixie: Who are you kidding? He's just as opposed to my going as you are.

Tad: I will present your side of the issue.

Dixie: Tad, no. Thank you. Really, I cannot discuss this any more tonight. Please go.

Tad: I can take a hint. Can I at least talk to you tomorrow after work?

Dixie: Yeah. Tomorrow, after work. Great.

Tad: I mean it. I'm going to call you from the office.

Dixie: Okay.

Tad: Okay.

Dixie: I wanted to tell him. I just couldnít. You heard him. You heard what he said -- he'd choose me over you. He'd do it again. I just couldn't take that. I can't stay here. I can't stay here.

Dixie: Hi. I need to book a seat on a flight to Zurich, Switzerland. Yeah, I need the earliest possible flight out tomorrow morning.

Jake: I wish I had something I could offer you to eat or drink.

Jake: You know, I never wanted any of this to happen, Greenlee.

Greenlee: You don't have to tell me that.

Anna: Oh, Foster, you are a miracle worker. Tell me, what did they find? Yeah? Oh. And the contents? Okay. No, I owe you. Really. Thank you, big-time. Bye.

Mateo: So, what's in the syringe?

Mateo: Anyone we know?

Anna: Vanessa Cortlandt.

Mateo: Oh.

Kendall: Stamp's got to have at least nine lives. And, hey, Erica Kane wants him to pull through. No way would he dare do anything else. Erica, maybe you should lie down. Can I get you anything?

Erica: Bianca. I need Bianca with me. Joe. Is it over? Is Chris out of surgery?

Joe: Things are not as simple as they originally expected.

Erica: What do you mean?

Joe: They've run into complications.

Erica: What? Joe, what? What's wrong?

Joe: I don't know the details, but Hayward and his team are doing everything they can. And I'll let you know as soon as I find out anything.

Ryan: I put him in there. I did this -- I did this to him.

Kendall: Ryan, no. No, you didn't.

Ryan: Yeah, he saw that the gun was pointed at me. He pushed me out of the way. He took the bullet that was meant for me.

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

Edmund: What's this?

Simone: It's my resignation.
