All My Children Transcript Monday 3/4/02
>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Erica: I am told that you don't want to see me?
Chris: You stay away from me.
Derek: You're under arrest for trafficking in narcotics.
Mateo: Vanessa or David -- I really don't care. I'm making Proteus pay for what he did.
Jake: If Leoís with Vanessa, there's no way Iím letting you anywhere near that nut case by yourself.
Vanessa: I love you. Please don't make me hurt you.
David: Why don't you make yourself useful, Mateo, and call a guard in here?
Mateo: Nope. This is a private interview.
David: From what I understand, that's not allowed.
Mateo: Well, I'm a highly motivated guy. You understand that, right? Anything's possible when you've been pushed to the limit.
David: Yeah, I know what it's like to be pushed to the limit. That's exactly where I'm at right now being dragged in here. Guard! I want to talk to my attorney!
Mateo: He hears you. He doesn't care.
David: Do they know you're in here with me right now?
Mateo: Mm-hmm, yep. Yep, they do. They tend to look the other way for certain people, Proteus.
David: "Proteus," huh? If that's supposed to be a threat, it's a pretty lame one.
Mateo: You feel safe behind here? You know, I got knifed when I was in prison. But then again, you do know that because you ordered the hit.
David: Yeah, you're right, Mateo. I have connections, but not the way you're talking about. I have friends in high places and I know my rights.
Mateo: Nobody gives a damn about your rights.
David: Well, they will when I sue.
Mateo: You think you'll be around for that long?
David: And what is that supposed to mean? What, are you packing heat?
Mateo: Make no mistake, you will pay for what you did to me and my family.
David: Try to get this through your thick skull, Mateo -- I am not Proteus, all right? I was set up. Those files on my computer were planted there.
Mateo: So how come you were trying to get rid of them when the cops were banging on your door, huh?
David: Look, I know we don't like each other, but I always gave you some credit for intelligence. You're smarter than this.
Mateo: I am what you made me, and you did a good enough job. I actually enjoyed the power that you gave me.
David: I didn't have any power to give you, Mateo, unless of course you wanted to be a candy striper at the hospital.
Mateo: So you're not Proteus?
David: Finally -- no, I'm not.
Mateo: So what you're saying is that the position is open, right? Cool. I'll take it. Yeah, I'll call the shots. You know what I'd do? I'd snatch you out of water and make you flop around like a fish fighting for its life. That's what I'd do. Yeah, lately I've been thinking about what it's like to do that to someone -- you know, torture a guy, make him feel the fear burn in his gut, the fear that I could take his life at any moment, make him afraid for his very soul.
Anna: Please just put the paperwork down and think for a minute.
Chris: Devane, I am never going to see Hayward through your eyes because I never shared a pillow with him.
Anna: David is not Proteus.
Chris: Is this putting you in a bad light, Devane? Tough.
Anna: This is not about my career. It's about the truth.
Anna: You've made a bad arrest. You know it.
Chris: Give it.
Anna: I'm sorry you got shot. I couldn't be sorrier. But don't you believe in justice?
Chris: Are you going to leave, or do I have to find someone to assist you?
Anna: I know you feel powerless.
Chris: You have no idea how I feel!
Anna: Yeah, if I was in this hospital, I'd want to tear it down brick by brick, but I hope to hell that I wouldn't abuse my position and use it for revenge.
Chris: Yeah, well, you keep this up. You keep it up and you're going to join him as an accomplice.
Anna: You know, I'm all for bending the rules, Chris, but this stinks. And your -- your self-pity party is nauseating.
Erica: Have you lost your mind? How dare you talk to Chris like that.
Greenlee: Aah! Leo!
Jake: Greenlee, hey -- Greenlee, no!
Leo: You guys shouldn't be here.
Greenlee: Who's shot?
Leo: It hit the ceiling.
Greenlee: I thought you -- you're all right.
Jake: All right. All right, listen. Leo, just put the gun down, please.
Leo: Back off, white knight.
Greenlee: Why'd you fire that thing?
Leo: It was a mistake after I wrestled it from my own mother.
Greenlee: Thank God you're okay.
Leo: So, what, are guys -- are the police waiting for a signal from you guys or something?
Jake: No, no, no. We came alone.
Greenlee: We wouldn't file charges without you. I had to find you.
Vanessa: Oh, how very touching.
Leo: Shut up.
Jake: All right, listen, the police are already looking for her. They've got the word out on her already.
Greenlee: It seems we're not the only ones on her victim list.
Leo: Yeah, well, on the brighter side, it turns out my mother's got a soft, fuzzy side.
Greenlee: Where? Under the scales?
Leo: No, seriously. She had this thing pointed right at me and didn't pull the trigger, so I guess you don't have it in you to kill your own flesh and blood. Right, Mother?
Greenlee: That's not entirely true, Leo.
Leo: What are you talking about?
Greenlee: Looks like Vanessa killed more than ex-lovers. She shot her own niece. Your mom murdered Frankie.
Anna: Ugh. Well, I guess the cavalry's been downsized.
Erica: Chris does not need you screaming at him like this. Please leave.
Anna: You know, Erica, I could snap you in two without breaking a sweat, so don't --
Erica: Oh, I'm so impressed. Why don't you just stop by the psychiatric ward on your way out?
Chris: Why don't you both stop by?
Erica: Don't worry. She's going to be gone in a minute. Look, your -- your venom is toxic. Chris does not need that.
Anna: He just had David arrested and charged with drug trafficking, okay?
Erica: David? David saved your life. Chris, you wouldn't have lived long enough to get to the hospital.
Chris: He also made sure I would never walk out of here.
Erica: Who are you calling?
Chris: Stamp here. I need an agent sent up to my room. I need a couple of things removed.
Anna: Please, please -- call the station; tell them that you made a mistake about David. We both know the evidence points to someone else.
Erica: So you are just as deeply involved with David as I had heard. Doesn't that make your judgment just a little bit suspect?
Anna: Go away.
Erica: Why don't you run down right now? You should run down right now to the police station and you really should have yourself recused.
Anna: You know, you are working my last nerve.
Erica: Well, fine. Then let's settle this outside. Let's -- please, let's spare Chris all of this.
Anna: I'm not done.
Chris: Great. And don't come back.
Anna: So much for loyalty, Erica. You don't seem to care that he is railroading your ex.
Chris: No, that is not --
Anna: But then, of course, Chris is sabotaging his own career as well as Davidís --
Erica: I don't want that.
Anna: Because when the truth comes out about Proteus, Chris is going down in flames because David is not the head of a drug ring.
Erica: Which is why I am trying to get through to you.
Anna: Why am I talking to you? You don't care. You just want oranges and mixed nuts or whatever.
Erica: Are you done?
Anna: No, I'm not. You know, I'm not.
Erica: Well, then, just shut up and listen.
Erica: Because I happen to agree with you, Anna, okay? How does that grab you?
David: If you or anybody you hire hurts me --
Mateo: "When." It's when I hurt you.
David: You will do jail time, Mateo. I promise you.
Mateo: Do you think anybody gives a damn about you? Huh?
David: You do know that I'm going to report this to --
Mateo: Oh, come on, the cops -- the cops would consider it a community service if someone offs you.
David: Mateo, I'm innocent.
Mateo: I better step back before the lightning strikes. Did you get some perverse pleasure out of torturing me?
David: I didn't torture you!
Mateo: Do you enjoy watching people's lives turn upside down? Does that amuse you?
David: Look, I know you think that I'm Proteus, but I'm not, okay?
Mateo: Uh-huh. I don't expect you to admit it. I donít. I don't expect you to admit it. I'll just let the evidence speak for itself.
David: I was set up.
Mateo: Right. By who? Your crazy old mother? She set you up? She planted that stuff in your computer? She did the syringe? She killed those people?
David: It had to be her.
Mateo: No, no. You just want it to look that way.
David: No, no! Actually, I didn't want to see it. I refused to see it. I mean, Vanessaís so needy --
Mateo: Right, uh-huh.
David: She's so clingy and --
Mateo: And you took advantage of that, didn't you?
David: No! Look -- look, do you honestly think that I'd want to work with her, that I trust her?
Mateo: What, I'm supposed to trust you, the man who dr. Do you know how many lives you ruined? Huh? You've been on a power trip since you landed in Pine Valley.
David: No, Anna has been warning me! She saw right through Vanessaís act!
Mateo: Yeah, and you didn't see it?
Hayley: Vanessa? Mateo, let go of him! Let go. He said Vanessaís Proteus!
Mateo: No, he's getting to that point.
Hayley: No, Mateo. Listen, think about me. That's his mother. When I look at Arlene, I see everything but the truth. Let go of him!
Mateo: It's different. It's different.
Hayley: Mateo, it's not different. It's exactly the same. Please let go of him.
David: It's been her all along, even when I was a kid, probably. Anna was right. It's Vanessa, Vanessa all along. Vanessa is Proteus!
Hayley: Mateo, please, I believe him.
Greenlee: Larry and Paolo I can understand, and she's jealous of our relationship. But Frankie? No. Frankie's just a kid.
Vanessa: Leo, this wench is just trying to make more trouble for me again.
Leo: Did you do to Frankie what you couldn't do to me? Did you pull the trigger?
Vanessa: I most certainly did not murder that poor girl.
Leo: Erica and Bianca suffered through that trauma. I'm not sure Biancaís ever going to get over that.
Vanessa: And that's very regrettable. But I am not at fault for any of that, I swear.
Jake: Where's Frankie's sister?
Greenlee: Maggie's missing. What did you do with her?
Vanessa: Well, nothing. That would be --
Greenlee: Did you inject your magic serum?
Jake: Did you give her a nice, tidy heart attack, Vanessa?
Vanessa: You know something? You are as ill-mannered as Mary Margaret was, so you just be careful, Doctor.
Leo: Whoa, "was"? Wait, wait, did you -- "was"? Did you kill Frankie and Maggie?
Vanessa: I did no such thing.
Greenlee: Sure, she didn't. She doesn't have to chip a nail when all it takes is a phone call to a henchman and, poof, somebody gets stuffed.
Vanessa: "Stuffed, stuffed, stuffed" -- you know, you really have to stop watching those stupid mob movies, dear.
Leo: Mother? Is Maggie dead?
Vanessa: Leo, let me tell you, this girl is so filled with venom --
Greenlee: Better than what you're filled with, Vanessa.
Vanessa: No, all she's ever done is lie to you and cheat on you with this boring dolt.
Leo: Shut up!
Vanessa: No --
Leo: Shut the hell up and answer me!
Vanessa: Believe me --
Leo: No, I'm not -- believe you? Believe -- I've believed you my whole life, but you are not going to talk your way out of this!
Vanessa: All right, Darling. All right, just let me -- I will explain everything to you, but not -- not in front of them. No, no, no, no, no. Let's go somewhere private, okay, where we can get some peace and quiet.
Greenlee: Peace and quiet just like Maggie?
Vanessa: Oh, my God. I can't think with you harping in the background. Can we please just get rid of them?
Jake: No, you already tried that, Vanessa, and you failed.
Vanessa: Darling, you know what it is? They do not understand us. They have no idea what we've been through, what we have overcome. And you know what? Like the song says, "I'm still here," and it's thanks to you, Leo. Oh, God, you and I were an unbeatable team. You know, we can beat this, too. We can.
Leo: There is no more "we" with us anymore, Mother.
Vanessa: Darling -- Darling, now, I love you.
Leo: No, no, no, I'm through. I'm through. Call the police. I can't even stand the sight of her anymore.
Vanessa: You --
Greenlee: Maybe that's the police.
Vanessa: Whew. Wrong again, dear. That's my ride.
Anna: You agree with me?
Erica: I simply agree that Chris cannot get past his fury, past his depression.
Anna: Well, go in there and tell him that.
Erica: Because the full frontal assault worked so well for you?
Anna: No. Not as well as I thought, no.
Erica: No, I do not intend to bully Chris. I frankly find his male pride rather charming.
Anna: Do you? Yeah, well, I donít. I find him stubborn and -- and destructive and maddening.
Erica: No, he is building a wall around himself, but I understand why.
Anna: Go in there and knock it down, Erica.
Erica: I can't do that. Chris would only build it higher. I -- look, I have to do this his way, which is where you come in.
Erica: You want to clear David, don't you? Anna, this was not a social call.
Anna: Oh. Fruit basket is cover, then, huh?
Erica: I have contacted a specialist to come in and examine Chris' spine and his legs.
Anna: Does he know?
Erica: No. He would never agree if he knew, which is why it's so very important that Chris believes that Dr. Stannart was sent by the F.B.I.
Anna: Well, you don't think that Chris would stand in the way of his own recovery, do you?
Erica: It's not a risk I'm willing to take. Are you?
Erica: Look, the sooner that Chris believes that he can really get well, the sooner he's going to stop blaming David.
Anna: Yeah, maybe.
Erica: Dr. Stannart can prove that David didn't cause Chris' temporary paralysis.
Anna: Oh, Erica, you're assuming an awful lot.
Erica: I'm assuming that you are sincerely -- well, you sincerely care for David.
Anna: Yeah. Yeah, I do. What would happen if this paralysis isn't temporary? What then?
Erica: I can deal with anything where Chris is concerned. But I will not give up on him. And I will make sure that he does not give up on himself.
Anna: That's nice. It's never just 50% with you, is it?
Erica: Look, compared to standing trial for murder, this little conspiracy with you is a piece of cake. Are you in?
Anna: Oh, I'm in.
Hayley: My God, Mateo. Don't you believe him?
Mateo: Yeah. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't an act.
David: Your faith in me is reassuring.
Hayley: You could've killed him!
Mateo: No, it's Proteus I want to kill. It was just a test.
Hayley: Oh, what good would that have done anybody?
Mateo: Listen, it was for myself, okay? I did it for me. The cops never would've let me shake him up like that. They'd have been all over me.
David: Oh, that's great. I'm glad I passed. Now can you get a cop in here so I can make a phone call?
Mateo: No, we don't want to alert Vanessa.
David: I'm not going to call Vanessa.
Hayley: Vanessa -- we don't know who her connections are. Please.
Mateo: Yeah. If someone calls her and tips her off, she's gone.
Hayley: Look, Stamp doesn't know what we know. He doesn't know that Vanessa is Proteus. Now, we've got to get to him and convince him this before she turns up in Venezuela or wherever it is she's headed.
Mateo: Yeah. And if she set up her son to take the fall --
Hayley: She's capable of doing anything to anybody. Do you understand that?
Mateo: We're wasting our time here. Let's go.
David: Oh, Vanessa. If you drove my father to suicide to keep your drug business going, you better pray that I don't get out of here.
Vanessa: Leo, you -- you seemed so upset on the phone, I decided I needed a little backup plan. Plan B, this is my son Leo, and the other two don't matter.
Man: Is he coming along?
Vanessa: I hoped so, but alas, no.
Leo: What, is he your hit man?
Man: If I have to be.
Vanessa: Well, let's hope that's not necessary.
Leo: Who are you? What are you?
Vanessa: Darling, I am your mother. I'm the woman that gave you birth. And I love you more than anything else in the whole wide world, and please don't forget that.
Leo: Jake, Greenlee, get out of here. Go. Go.
Jake: He's right, Greenlee. Let's go.
Vanessa: No, no, no. I really suggest you don't. You know, I wouldn't want any fatal accidents happening here, and my plan B here has quite an itchy trigger finger. However, I must really go.
Leo: Mother, stop.
Vanessa: Darling, you don't want your mummy rotting in prison, do you?
Leo: Actually, this time I think it might be for the best. Tell him to put it down. Put it down. My whole life I've helped you to get out of town, escape from what was coming to you. Not this time.
Vanessa: I never meant to cause you pain, darling. Don't hurt me now.
Leo: You are not walking out on this this time. Put the gun down. Put it down.
Vanessa: Poor baby, you are trembling. You can't shoot me any more than I could shoot you.
Greenlee: Give me the gun. I'll take her out.
Vanessa: Oh, you shut up. You're nothing but a human ping-pong ball bouncing between men.
Greenlee: Go on, Leo. You can do it.
Vanessa: Oh, I should have squashed you when I had the chance.
Leo: Shut up! Tell him to put the gun down.
Vanessa: Leo, you put the gun down. You've never fired a gun. Darling, put -- put it down. You could kill me.
Greenlee: Isn't that the idea?
Leo: No. No. You know this isn't what I want. This isn't what -- tell him to put it down.
Vanessa: Leo -- Leo, of course I know that. I understand that. I mean, we've shared so much, Darling. We've had only each other to depend on and to love. That's exactly why I know Greenlee is -- was wrong for you, Darling. She was trying to build wedges between us, control you --
Greenlee: That is such a crock.
Vanessa: Darling, come on. You can't kill me. We shared a life togeth-- Leo, I know you better than any person in the whole wide world.
Vanessa: You go to the car. Go.
Leo: No, no. Stop.
Leo: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. I told you, you're staying.
Vanessa: Oh, Leo. Please, come on. You know that free spirits like me just don't do well in prison. So if you want me to go in there, you're going to have to use that thing. Oh, Leo, Leo. Seems like my life is in your hands.
Jake: No! No!
Leo: Let go of me!
Jake: Lay down!
Leo: Let go!
Jake: Lay down, Leo!
Greenlee: They're getting away!
Leo: What the hell are you thinking?
Jake: I'm trying to save the rest of your life, Leo.
Zeke: Hey, am I that scary?
Zeke: So, what brings you to my salt mine?
Simone: I screwed up.
Zeke: Can't be that bad.
Simone: Oh, yes, it can.
Zeke: Want to tell me about it?
Simone: It's too late.
Zeke: No fair coming to me when it's too late. Now, tell me what's going on so we can see if we can get something positive out of this.
Simone: Are you shrinking me?
Zeke: You want me to?
Simone: I don't think so.
Mateo: Don't get too close, Doc. It might get you shot.
Greenlee: Did I tell you how much I'm starting to hate this place?
Leo: Well, you and me both.
Jake: Vanessa got away.
Greenlee: Should we get rid of that gun?
Jake: What, you going to use it against me?
Greenlee: Are the police on their way?
Leo: Yeah, and I hope they bring him in as an accomplice.
Jake: Look, Leo, they could be carting your mother's body off in a body bag right now.
Leo: I was only going to wound her.
Jake: Yeah, yeah, great theory. How many marksmanship trophies do you have again?
Leo: It wasn't your business, Jake.
Jake: It is my business. Vanessa tried to kill Greenlee and me. I want her locked up more than you do.
Leo: Really? You've sure got a weird way of showing it by letting her escape.
Jake: Listen, why don't you just leave the gunplay to the police. They're going to find her.
Leo: And what if they don't?
Jake: You know what? Don't even try to tell me that you were going to wound her. All right, I've seen what guns can do. Babies' bodies that are blown apart from a shot fired a block away, guns that just blew apart for no reason, taking kids' hands off. Don't even begin to tell me that you were going to wound her, Leo.
Leo: Yeah, well, this wasn't the day to play hero, okay?
Jake: What, you want to just let me -- want me just to go ahead and let you shoot your mother? Is that it? And your life would have been a whole big bowl of cherries, Leo, if your mother ended up in a morgue today. I didn't do it to save Vanessa.
Greenlee: He did it to save you.
Mateo: What, you don't want to hear it?
Simone: Quit following me.
Mateo: You get the guy shot and you show up at his hospital room? What, are you nuts?
Zeke: Let her go. And you might want to apologize for what you said.
Simone: It's okay, really. Everything that Mateoís saying is the truth.
Zeke: Somehow I doubt that.
Hayley: And who are you to doubt anything?
Simone: This is Dr. Zeke McMillan.
Zeke: I'm Simone's dad. I have a question for you -- what makes you feel entitled to make these allegations against my daughter?
Simone: Dad. This is Mateo Santos and his wife, Hayley. This is the couple that I was working with undercover on that story I couldn't tell you about. Look, if I would have dreamed that Chris was shot or --
Mateo: What, it'd have been better if Ryan was shot?
Simone: No, that's not what I'm saying. I didn't want anyone to get shot. Haven't you ever made a mistake?
Mateo: Yeah. When I worked with you. You coming?
Hayley: In a minute.
Simone: I could not be sorrier, Hayley.
Hayley: You know, I can handle you falling for Mateo and everything. He's irresistible. I get that. But nearly getting Chris killed? I can't forgive that.
Zeke: Simone and Mateoís romance was an act. Tell her.
Hayley: Yeah, we already discussed that, didn't we? Turns out your daughter's quite the method actress. I suggest you get another job.
Simone: Go ahead. Ask. I know you want to.
Zeke: I figure you'll tell me when you feel like it.
Simone: Okay, fine. I let things go too far with Mateo. I mean, I got emotionally attached --
Simone: But that's all. I mean, we didn't do anything else.
Zeke: All right.
Simone: I mean, it never even got that --
Zeke: Simone --
Simone: I hate that.
Zeke: What, that he wasn't interested?
Simone: No, I hate when I disappoint you so badly and you just stand there all shrink-like.
Zeke: Is that what I'm doing?
Simone: Yes! Stop it!
Zeke: I assume that this is why you have been avoiding me.
Simone: Well, getting involved with a married man is not something you want to go home to Daddy about.
Zeke: Putting a man's life in danger isn't a conversation starter, either. And what about losing your job?
Simone: Oh, you know about that, too?
Zeke: What are you doing for money, Simone?
Simone: Edmund's letting me freelance for "Tempo."
Zeke: But you have nothing steady?
Simone: My reputation kind of took a serious dive. I'm kind of in that position of starting over. Don't look at me like that. You know, this whole situation is really hard.
Zeke: Listen, I -- I wish that I could put a Band-Aid on it, buy you -- buy you a lemon ice, make everything better.
Simone: I wish you could, too.
Zeke: I think you can.
Zeke: Try to make amends when you find an opportunity, I guess.
Simone: Yeah, well, it doesn't look like I'm going to get that opportunity anytime soon.
Zeke: Simone, stay open.
Simone: Oh, isn't that how I got into this trouble? Being open?
Zeke: Okay, but you played it that way.
Simone: Can we please just drop the whole conversation about being balanced? I mean, I'm struggling just to get out of bed in the morning.
Zeke: You want to stay with me for a few weeks?
Simone: With you? So I can get analyzed on a daily basis?
Zeke: Simone --
Simone: Thanks, but no thanks.
Zeke: Simone, listen, you screwed up, okay?
Simone: Yeah, I know!
Zeke: You screwed up. Now you're going to take it out on the people who love you?
Simone: No, I think I'll just stick by myself for a while.
Zeke: I have some patients to see.
Simone: Yeah? You going to judge them, too?
Zeke: If they're being destructive, yes. Call me.
[Knock on door]
Chris: Go away.
Erica: Relax. That horrible Devane woman is long gone.
Chris: Why didn't you go with her?
Erica: Will you stop being so grumpy? I just spoke with Joe Martin, and we are arranging special visitation rules.
Chris: No visitors.
Erica: Hey -- you haven't touched any of this fruit.
Chris: That's because I'm not hungry.
Erica: Well, I got you something very special. Look what I have for you. I brought you a chocolate-covered --
Chris: Erica, Erica, please. I don't want you running interference for me with visitors or with the hospital, and I sure as hell don't need you feeding me right now, okay?
Erica: Okay. I mean, for heaven's sakes, if you're not hungry, just say so.
Chris: I just did. I just did, Erica. Now, why don't you take that fruit and go away?
Erica: Okay. I'll go, and I will -- I'll leave you alone. I'll leave you some time to think. But I'll be back tomorrow.
Chris: Don't. Look, I don't need you coming around here, hanging around, and feeling sorry for me.
Erica: Chris, that is not what I'm here for.
Chris: And I don't need your pity, please.
Man: Agent Stamp, I'm Bill Stannart.
Chris: Dr. Stannart. Anna Devane told me they were going to be sending you by. Erica?
Erica: Yes, excuse me, Dr. Stannart. I was just on my way out. Well, I hope you'll change your mind, Chris. I hope that you'll be in touch soon.
Chris: Okay, what's the drill, Doc?
Dr. Stannart: Well, the F.B.I. didn't have copies of your records, so I'll need to review those first.
Dr. Stannart: Then, in the morning, I'll do a thorough workup and run some tests if you're feeling up to it.
Chris: I'm feeling up to it right now. Look, I'll crawl across a mile of glass, whatever you want me to do. You just get me up so I can walk out of here.
Jake: Vanessa's accomplice held a gun on us. She left her car behind; they took off in a black town car. Did you get a plate number?
Leo: It wasn't hers. I mean, the car they took off in wasn't hers.
Derek: As far as you knew. But there was a lot about Vanessa Cortlandt that nobody knew.
Jake: So is that it?
Derek: Jake, I don't understand. How come you didn't stick around the station and report Vanessa drugging you? I mean, a double murder is not that big of a deal to you?
Jake: Well, we -- we just wanted to file this report together.
Greenlee: Jake, Leo, and I -- it involved all of us.
Derek: Excuse me. Yeah, this is Frye. Are you sure it was Mrs. Cortlandt's car?
Leo: Did they get the --
Derek: Well, how bad?
Leo: What -- what's going on? Is it my mother? Did they find her?
Derek: Leo --
Leo: It's okay. Yeah, what's going on with Vanessa Cortlandt? No, it's okay, it's okay. Officer Frye is right here. So what's going on? Oh.
Leo: Oh, my God.
Leo: Yeah -- uh, yeah, I'm still here.
Derek: Yeah, this is Frye. Have you secured the area?
Greenlee: Leo, what is it? What's going on? What happened?
Leo: Uh, she's gone.
Greenlee: She really got away? She got on a plane or something?
Leo: Uh, no, her car -- it went off the road and down -- down an embankment, and ex-- exploded.
Anna: Oh, hi. Well, if Stamp wasn't already in the hospital, I'd put him there myself, you know? He's not listening to reason. He doesn't seem to care about professional ethics or his future with the F.B.I. He doesn't care.
David: The man can't walk, Anna. That's his focus right now.
Anna: Yeah, I know. I know. But he should wake the hell up where you're concerned.
David: Yeah, well, I've had to do that myself over the last hour.
Anna: What do you mean?
David: My mother's guilty. I can't deny it any longer.
Anna: Oh, finally.
David: Mateo was here. He was mouthing off about Proteus. And it just -- it all came together, you know, everything that you've been saying.
Anna: I'm sorry, David. It's true.
David: I mean, who knows how many people she's killed? And when you factor in all the lives ruined by her drug trafficking --
Anna: Are you okay?
David: I just want to find Maggie. Have you heard anything?
Anna: No, nothing.
David: I'm telling you, Anna, if Vanessa killed Maggie, I swear --
Anna: Sorry. Hi. Anna. Yeah, okay. Yeah. It's your mother. There's been an accident.
Chris: Now, get back to me as soon as you have a complete report, okay?
Mateo: Stamp, listen, you got the wrong suspect in custody.
Hayley: Mateo did some private detecting.
Mateo: Hayward wasn't faking. He's not Proteus.
Hayley: It's Vanessa.
Mateo: It's definitely Vanessa.
Hayley: Even Haywardís accepted it.
Mateo: You've got to put an APB out on her.
Chris: No, I donít.
Hayley: Oh --
Mateo: Stamp, you don't understand. Hayward is not Proteus.
Hayley: She's out there on the loose.
Chris: They found Vanessa.
Chris: That was Frye. One of his patrol cars was in a high-pursuit chase with another vehicle. In that vehicle, Vanessa was a passenger. One of her guys was driving the car. It went off the road, went down the ravine, exploded on impact.
Hayley: Vanessa's dead?
Chris: One way or another, it's over.
Mateo: It -- it's over?
Hayley: It's over.
Greenlee: What can I say to him?
Jake: He's on emotional overload.
Greenlee: I can't exactly sympathize about Vanessa. I feel like the flying monkeys -- "Ding-dong, the witch is dead."
Derek: Leo --
Leo: Uh, I don't really have anything else I can tell you.
Derek: Yeah, I -- I just got off the phone with one of my officers, DiMartino. He's at the accident site now.
Leo: Tell me.
Derek: Well, the fire is still burning and the ravine's not an easy access, and -- well, none of my people have been able to get to the vehicle yet.
Leo: I want to go there.
Derek: I understand, Leo. I understand, but just listen to me. There was no movement in the vehicle or the surrounding areas. They don't -- they don't think that anybody could have survived.
Greenlee: Is there anything I can do?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Derek: We have to find anybody who had contact with your mother in the past few days.
Stuart: Maybe we can help.
Leo: I wish that I wasn't sorry that my mother was still alive.
Jake: I'm going to prove to you we belong together.
Kendall: I'm moving into this room with Mr. Lavery.
Ryan: I need answers from you.
