>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Leo: Why the happy dance face?

Greenlee: I got written up in one of the trades. Happy now?

Mateo: You remember me now, don't you?

Vanessa: I don't think so.

Mateo: I'm the guy you set up. I'm going to make you pay. I'm here to punish you.

Ryan: To myrtle's bourbon before lunch.

Chris: I can drink to that.

Kendall: Welcome home, Honey.

Kendall: I'm so glad we're neighbors now. You'll find out just how neighborly I can be. All you have to do is call, and I'll come running. Just remember, I'll be right next door.

Opal: What the heck are you doing? Erica?

Erica: Oh, Opal. Come in.

Opal: Where were you just now?

Erica: Ugh. In hell.

Kendall: Here you go. Here, just lean forward like this. There you go. This way it'll support your lower back.

Chris: Oh.

Kendall: How's that?

Chris: It's all right.

Kendall: So did you have lunch at the hospital? I could fix something for you. Or maybe you just want bourbon.

Chris: Kendall, what kind of a medal are you bucking for?

Kendall: I'm just being neighborly. I do live next door, remember that. Don't worry -- when I play my music, I'll wear my headphones.

Chris: You know what you can do for me?

Kendall: Name it.

Chris: Keep your distance.

Kendall: But I was just trying to be --

Chris: Can it. Can it. The truth is I don't like you, and it's a safe bet I never will.

Opal: That's what my dream meant. Kendall the vampire -- she is a real, live bloodsucker.

Erica: You want an argument from me?

Opal: She's going after Chris just the way she went after Dimitri.

Erica: Well, Dimitri saw through her. Anyone with eyes can see what she's up to.

Opal: So she's just rooming with Bianca so she can get her fangs into Chris. But you're right. You don't have to worry. I mean, Chris is bound to get wise to her.

Erica: For heaven's sakes, Opal, you think that this is about Chris?

Opal: Well, it's okay if it is.

Erica: Opal, my concern is for Bianca.

Opal: Well, Biancaís no dummy, either.

Erica: Well, no, but she's still so vulnerable. And Kendallís whole reason for living is to get back at me. I mean, she won't hesitate a minute to sink her fangs into Bianca.

Opal: Well, Honey, according to my dream, you're going to have to step back or you're going to make things worse.

Erica: Uh-uh. What I'm going to have to do is stop Kendall before it gets any worse. That's what I'm going to have to do. And I'm just about to do it.

Opal: Know, what is the good of seeing the future if nobody listens? I'm telling you, your plan is going to backfire.

Erica: No, my plan is going to work. I'm going to make sure of it.

Opal: Well, I would feel a whole lot better about it if you didn't have to use Greenlee.

Greenlee: Use me? Use me to do what?

Brooke: Honey, I think you already have plenty of good stuff for your report, don't you?

Jamie: I guess.

Brooke: What's the matter? Watching your mom turn out a magazine getting a little old?

Jamie: No, we do the same thing every year.

Edmund: We weren't covering Proteus last year.

Brooke: Yeah.

Jamie: True.

Brooke: You know, I thought you liked in-depth reporting.

Jamie: Yeah, but Edmund covered that.

Brooke: Ed-- ahem, excuse me. Edmund covered that all by his little self?

Edmund: Ahem -- be fair to your mom. I mean, she was a big help. She corrected my spelling.

Brooke: Oh, great. Now you think he is the hero and I am the human spell checker.

Brooke: Thank you.

Jamie: Chill, Mom. We're yanking your chain.

Edmund: Jack, how are you?

Brooke: You know, I thought you were going to be a good influence.

Jack: Hi, Edmund. How you doing? And you --

Brooke: Hi, Sweetie. How are you?

Jack: Good, good.

Brooke: You want to join us for a minute?

Jack: Yeah, for a minute. How you doing, Jamie? Good to see you.

Brooke: Sweetie, could you go check on our takeout?

Jamie: You trying to get rid of me now?

Edmund: I'll fill you in later, okay?

Brooke: Um --

Edmund: The food?

Jack: Smart kid. Let's see if I'm as smart now. This would be the point at which you start pumping me for information on your Proteus followup, right?

Brooke: Uh-huh.

Edmund: Yep. What do you got?

Brooke: Is Vanessa competent to stand trial?

Jack: Well, that's what we're going to find out today. Psychiatrist, as a matter of fact, should be there about now.

Brooke: So what do you think? Is she insane?

Jack: I doubt it. Although she does maintain that Mateo got through security into her room and threatened her. And she also maintains that she got a threatening phone call.

Edmund: From whom?

Jack: Would you believe Proteus?

Woman: How long do you think Iíll need, Dr. Fishman? My client tires easily.

Dr. Fishman: That depends. Sometimes I can assess mental competency rather quickly.

David: Okay, great. Let me save you some time. My mother's faking.

Leo: David, you don't know that. You're not a shrink.

David: I'm not saying she's sane. I'm saying she knows what she's doing and she knows what she's done, believe me.

Dr. Fishman: Dr. Hayward, I've been evaluating patients for some time. If your mother's faking, I'll know it. She'll stand trial for all her crimes and spend 20 years to life paying for them behind bars.

Vanessa: Vanessa? What, Rosie? Vanessa, I -- Rosie! All right. All right, just calm down, ladies. You just prepare yourselves for the greatest performance of your lives.

Nurse: Excuse me -- Doctor? Phone call.

Leo: So if you find that she is mentally stable enough to stand trial, then what happens?

Dr. Fishman: She'll be taken into police custody.

Leo: And then they'll, what, formally arrest her?

Dr. Fishman: Yes.

Leo: And she'll be locked up until the trial?

Dr. Fishman: Perhaps that's something you might want to discuss with the D.A.

David: All right, thank you.

David: Aren't you going to say good-bye?

Maggie: I was only taking a walk.

David: In your street clothes?

Maggie: David, you can't keep me here indefinitely, okay?

David: You practically froze to death.

Maggie: Yeah, but I thawed out. No frostbite.

David: I thought you were going to let me help you.

Maggie: And I thought I did that.

David: You didn't even say good-bye to Leo.

Maggie: Come on, I barely know him. I barely know you.

David: That might be true, but we are family, right?

Maggie: Yeah, and I'm going to try to forget that because it seems whoever is related to Vanessa doesn't last very long. It killed my sister. It almost killed me.

David: I promise you, Maggie, that my mother is going to pay for what she did to Frankie and what she did to you.

Maggie: You can't promise me that. She may be crazy, but believe me, she's outsmarted the cops for years. She'll walk.

David: No, she wonít.

Maggie: Yes, she will. She'll walk, and then she'll come back and get those people who crossed her.

David: I understand that you're afraid. I do.

Maggie: Oh, you do, cousin Dave? Well, good, because she has no conscience and she will kill anyone who gets in her way.

David: I know.

Maggie: Your father. She made him hold a gun to his head. He blew his brains out right in front of you.

David: She told you that?

Maggie: And she was proud of it.

David: Yeah, well, I'm still here.

Maggie: Well, maybe I'm not as brave as you.

David: And maybe you are. Maybe you just need to stay and find out.

Leo: Dr. Fishman, believe me, I know her better than anyone. I should be in there with her.

Dr. Fishman: Mr. du Pres, please, wait out here.

Leo: Just --

Woman: Leo, you can't help her right now.

Woman: Hello. Do you remember me? I'm --

Vanessa: Of course I do, dear. You're the screenwriter. We don't need her here, do we?

Woman: I'm Barbara Dickson, your attorney appointed by the court.

Vanessa: Yes, yes --

Barbara: This is dr. --

Vanessa: Well, actually, we're just ready to film this entire scene, and Mr. Mayer wants this whole picture in the can ASAP.

[Part of transcript (2 lines) missing]

Barbara: So you're Rosie?

Vanessa: Rosie Wells, contract player. Future star, if I do say so.

Barbara: Rosie, Dr. Fishman is a psychiatrist.

Vanessa: Sure you are. So what are you doing? What are you trying to do to me right now?

Dr. Fishman: Now, there's no reason to be upset.

Vanessa: No!

Dr. Fishman: We're just going to have a little conversation --

Vanessa: No, you see, I have learned these lines backwards and forwards. I will recite my lines perfectly every single time, like I always do. Now, what is this? You're trying to give me rewrites right now?

Barbara: You see what she's like?

Vanessa: No, no, no. I want the director. I am going to stay right here in my dressing room.

Barbara: Do you need to hear any more?

Dr. Fishman: No, please, I'll handle it from here.

Vanessa: Writers. Really, really --

Dr. Fishman: So we're going to play a scene, are we?

Vanessa: Oh, please. Now, why else would I be dressed like this?

Dr. Fishman: Well, suppose you tell me what the scene is about.

Vanessa: All right. If you recall, I am an exhausted housewife, and I'm trying to convince you that I'm not crazy even though I've been admitted to this place.

Dr. Fishman: So you realize that you're in a hospital?

Vanessa: Of course I know I'm in a hospital set. Are you ready?

Dr. Fishman: Are you insane really, or are you just pretending to be?

Vanessa: Oh, dear God. A method actor. Look, darling, don't worry about your motivation because the camera is going to be on me all the time. Your only problem is to stay out of my key light and just, you know, follow my lead. Well, would somebody say action? Action!

Brooke: Uh-huh. So how did Vanessa get a phone call from Proteus? I don't believe there was a phone in the room, was there?

Jack: No, there wasn't. And, frankly, I don't think she did.

Brooke: So obviously she's lying.

Edmund: Or she's really ready for a padded cell.

Brooke: Or she's pulling a major scam so she doesn't have to go into a prison cell.

Jack: Well, let's not fight about it, kids. I'm on my way over to the hospital right now to meet with the psychiatrist, see what he's determined.

Brooke: So when can we find out from you what happened?

Jack: Right after I talk to Sam Donaldson.

Brooke: Sit! Going to have to hurt you.

[Phone rings]

[Line missing]

Edmund: Isn't it your turn to deal with them?

Brooke: Oh, fine. All right. I'm tougher on those guys than you are, anyway.

Edmund: She is.

Jack: I'm sure she is.

Brooke: All right. You want to see your mom in action?

Jamie: Can I hang with Edmund?

Brooke: Okay. Don't get into trouble.

Edmund: Us?

Brooke: Yes, you.

Edmund: Never.

Brooke: All right, all right.

Jack: Don't forget me. Thank you very much.

Brooke: All right, I'll see you later. Bye, Sweetie.

Edmund: So, Jackson, what can you tell us? You mind if we tag along to the hospital with you for the story?

Jack: No, not at all. What, are you guys a team now or what?

Edmund: Are we?

Jamie: Yeah, we're a team.

Jack: Then let's go.

Erica: I was just leaving you another note.

Greenlee: Another note?

Erica: Mm-hmm. I want you to go to New York for me in my place.

Greenlee: New York?

Erica: Yes.

Greenlee: In your place?

Erica: Yes. My European supplier is coming in. I want you to evaluate the line.

Greenlee: Me?

Erica: You will have my penthouse suite at the St. Pierre. Val's going to call and make sure you have first-class airline tickets and, of course, use of the limo.

Greenlee: Thanks.

Erica: Well, this time you can even pretend you're me, Greenlee, with my blessings.

Greenlee: Erica, what's going on?

Erica: I'm rewarding you.

Greenlee: I know. You extended my contract with a raise and now you're gushing over me, but --

Erica: But what? Am I making a mistake, Greenlee?

Greenlee: No.

Erica: Because if you are suddenly riddled with self-doubt, then I can't use you at all.

Greenlee: No, I'm not. I deserve everything I get.

Erica: Well, that is certainly true.

Greenlee: I'll love going to New York in your place, Erica. In fact, getting out of this town will suit me just fine. And believe me, I will do you proud. Oh -- I'm supposed to give a deposition tomorrow to Jackson Montgomery about the Proteus case.

Erica: And that would be my problem because?

Greenlee: It's not. I'll have Mr. Montgomery postpone. Thank you, Erica.

Erica: No, nothing at all. Thank you.

Opal: All right. Fill me in.

Erica: Okay. I need Greenlee gone right now where nobody can reach her because she can't know that Revlon is trying to lure her away for a training program in Paris, okay? So in the meanwhile, I will be here. I will intercept her phone calls, I will intercept her E-mail --

Opal: Yes, but what if Revlon shows up here?

Erica: Well, then I will have a much more suitable candidate.

Opal: Kendall?

Erica: My loss will be Revlonís gain. Or vice versa.

Opal: But Kendall doesn't work for Enchantment.

Erica: But she will. Just watch.

Opal: I will. One thing you got to say for that girl -- she thrives on living dangerously.

Kendall: There you go. That's the best I could do. Next time I promise I will not let anyone read it until you read it first.

Chris: Do you have a problem with your short-term memory?

Kendall: What? Oh, you don't like me. That's okay. Most people donít.

Chris: Yeah, well, I wouldn't be proud of that. What the hell are you grinning about?

Ryan: Huh? Oh. Well, you know, she lived next to me for months, and, well, now she's your problem.

Chris: You want to make yourself useful?

Kendall: Yes. Name it.

Chris: Up in my room on the desk, there's a box. Bring it down.

Kendall: Sure.

Ryan: I should probably get going.

Chris: Can -- can you wait two minutes?

Chris: It's the only box on the desk!

Ryan: You know she's going to be on your case.

Chris: She'll get tired and go away.

Ryan: Good luck. She's like gum stuck to the bottom --

Kendall: Is this it?

Chris: Was there another box on the desk?

Kendall: No.

Chris: Thank you. You're dismissed.

Chris: Come here. I want you to take a look at this.

Ryan: My grandparents.

Chris: Yeah. I thought you might like to know what they look like. You know, where you come from.

Chris: You look like my dad.

Ryan: They -- they seem like good people.

Chris: I told you, solid gold.

Ryan: Are they --

Chris: Dead?

Ryan: Both?

Chris: Yeah. Yeah, about a year apart. My dad went first. He had cancer. And my mom -- my mom, she was healthy, but one day she just -- she died.

Kendall: From a broken heart? I mean, you hear stories of people dying from a broken heart, but I didn't know you really could.

Chris: You can. They loved me very much, Ryan, but it was their love for each other that kept them going. So nobody can ever tell me that kind of love doesn't exist because I saw it.

Ryan: Well, you're very lucky.

Chris: I -- I wish you could've know them.

Ryan: Yeah.

[Knock on door]

Kendall: Erica.

Erica: Hello, Kendall.

Kendall: I was just thinking about you a few hours ago. Could almost smell your perfume. Come on in. Chris is here. But you know that already.

Erica: Actually, I'm here to see you.

Maggie: Okay, so I am a coward. Bianca's already accused me of walking out on my sister.

David: Was she right?

Maggie: Who cares? Frankie's dead. What good is it going to do her if I testify against Vanessa?

David: You just predicted that Vanessa was going to walk. Don't you want to make sure that that doesn't happen?

Maggie: Yes. No. David, it has nothing to do with me. Wow, you really hate her, don't you? You really want to put her away.

David: I just want her to get what she deserves.

Maggie: Yeah, but -- God, she's your mother.

David: That wasn't my choice.

Maggie: She said that everything she did she did for you.

David: Oh, that -- that's a lie, okay? Everything about my mother's life is a lie, Maggie. But I'm telling you right now, she's going to be punished whether you help us or not.

Maggie: How are you not afraid of her?

David: Because when my father died, a part of me died with him. The worst Vanessa could ever do to me, she's already done.

Vanessa: You see, I did everything for him. Everything. Everything I did was for him, for him.

Dr. Fishman: Go on.

Vanessa: Cut! Cut! I have carried entire motion pictures on my back before, but I'm going to need just a little bit more than just a simple "Go on" or a "What do you think?" I've never worked with anyone so untalented and infuriating as you. Really, really, really -- oh. Oh -- oh, God. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. Vanessa can be so crude. She's so controlling.

Dr. Fishman: Rosie, are you?

Vanessa: Thank God.

Dr. Fishman: Oh, good. I'm glad Vanessaís gone. You and I will get on much better, just the two of us.

Vanessa: Oh, dear. Yes, I -- I think I know what that means. Well, it's the casting couch, isn't it?

Leo: Is that because of her mental state, or is it because she can't afford -- I don't understand.

Barbara: I'm fully prepared to represent her.

Leo: You're sure? Well?

Dr. Fishman: We're taking a break.

Leo: Well -- so what do you think? Is she insane or isn't she?

Dr. Fishman: I haven't completed my work.

Leo: But you have to have some kind of an opinion, Doc. Come on. Depending on what you say, my mother could end up on Death Row. Give me --

Dr. Fishman: Perhaps that's something you should be prepared for.

Edmund: Stay here. I'm going to find a pay phone.

Vanessa: He's a fool. Well, they're all fools. I'm almost free. Free, free, free.

Distorted voice: Not so fast, Vanessa. You'll never be free, Vanessa. I'll see to that.

Vanessa: No.

Vanessa: All right, all right, all right, all right. Where are you? Where is this coming from? You tell me, you tell me -- all right. Okay. Have you stopped? You were never there, right? I never -- I never heard anything. Okay, it stopped. It stopped.

Distorted voice: I'll stop when you stop -- when you're stone cold dead.

Vanessa: Dear God, no.

Distorted voice: You don't really believe your charade is working, do you?

Vanessa: Oh, no! No! You have to help me! Help me!

Vanessa: Help me! Help me, please, somebody! Proteus -- Proteus is trying to kill me. Now, you've got to help me. Somebody's got to hide me.

David: What's going on?

Vanessa: You've got to hide me.

Leo: David, she's freaking out, man.

Vanessa: Ooh, ooh --

David: All right, all right, just take a deep breath, Mother. Just take a breath.

Vanessa: You leave me alone. Stop it!

Leo: She's been -- I was just with her and she wasn't anything like this. What the hell is going on?

David: Calm down --

Vanessa: No, no -- let go! I can't trust you. I can't trust any -- you are all on his side. Stay. I mean it. Stay, stay. Oh, my -- can it be? Oh, my, my, my. Oh, oh -- yes. Oh, my darling, my sweet. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. You're here. You can save Mommy, can't you? My lost child. I knew, I knew, I knew you would help. Oh, I knew -- I know, I know, I know, I know you would -- I know! Oh, oh, yes!

Edmund: Let him go!

Vanessa: Oh, no!

Ryan: So how long are you planning on staying mad at Erica?

Chris: What, have you got problems with your memory, too, Ryan? I just got through telling you about my parents and how they loved each other for over 50 years without lying, without using each other, without --

Ryan: I know you said that. I just -- I don't know why.

Chris: Yeah, you do.

Ryan: Well, whatever life lessons I could've learned from my grandparents are lost. I guess I just missed out.

Chris: Look, I'm sorry about that.

Ryan: Well, you know, everybody's got something wrong with them.

Chris: They would've been happy having a grandson. A grandson like you.

Kendall: Fine, Erica. I get it. You love Bianca. You're afraid I'll steal her soul. What?

Erica: You are so like me.

Kendall: What?

Erica: When I was your age, I was so full of myself that I couldn't tell an apology if I heard one.

Kendall: Apology?

Erica: It's because I'm worrying so much about Bianca that I came -- I came down too hard on you, and I'm sorry.

Kendall: Okay, that's fine. Anything else?

Erica: Kendall, this is really hard for me. Please don't make it any harder than it already is.

Kendall: What's hard? What are you doing?

Erica: I am worrying so much about Bianca that I forget that I have two daughters.

Kendall: And one of them is me. Who is this performance supposed to impress, me?

Erica: Kendall, it is long past time that you and I --

Kendall: Oh, God, I cannot believe this. You come here and make nice to me, humiliate yourself like this, just to keep an eye on Chris and me?

Erica: Oh. Well, I'm not surprised that that's what you think, but you're wrong.

Kendall: You saw me kiss him -- don't pretend you didn't -- and you can't stand it.

Erica: Would you listen to me?

Kendall: It was just a little kiss. No fireworks. But give me time. How long do you think it'll take me to get him into bed?

Erica: And then what?

Kendall: Then who knows?

Erica: You still won't have what you want.

Kendall: Which is what?

Erica: Me.

Kendall: Please.

Erica: You want to believe that I hate you.

Kendall: You've always hated me because of the unfortunate way that I came into this world.

Erica: I hated that, not you.

Kendall: But you got over it more or less. Being raped at 14 left no permanent damage on you.

Erica: Don't you dare. Don't you dare make light of that. I almost died that night, and I could have died. But my mother took care of -- my mother took care of both of us.

Kendall: This is the last thing that I want to talk about right now.

Erica: Well, you know what? You're going to talk about it right now. You were right. I got over what happened to me that night. With a lot of pain and a lot of effort and with a lot of love from my mother, I survived. With my mother's love, I survived. I'm whole, and that's what you can't stand. That's why you can't forgive me. You blame me for not being angry and empty like you.

Kendall: "Because of my mother's love, I survived." What are the chances of me ever saying that to my daughter, Mother? Do you remember your parting words last time I left town? You said I was a stranger and that you could never feel even remotely maternal towards me.

Erica: Because of what you did, because of your behavior, because of the really horrible things that you did to me.

Kendall: So what? Even if I did horrible things to you, I'm your daughter, your child. I'm your blood. You can't treat me like a stranger, no matter what.

Erica: You're right.

Kendall: You don't mean that.

Erica: Well, I'm here, aren't I? You're right. I can't turn my back on you, no matter how hard I have tried.

Kendall: You want to give me a second chance.

Erica: Truthfully, I don't think that this chance will turn out any better than any of the others. But I'm willing to risk it because being friends with both my daughters is worth it.

Kendall: And you really expect me to believe that this has nothing to do with Chris in there?

Erica: What I think is that you're an intelligent person and I will leave it up to you to decide exactly why I'm here and what I want. You know where I am.

Ryan: So what's up?

Kendall: Same old crapola. So what'd I miss? Have you gone through the family album by now? How'd you like Aunt Lulabelle and Cousin Snotnose?

Chris: Hey -- you watch that smart mouth of yours around me, you hear?

Ryan: Well, I guess I'm out of here.

Chris: Ryan, I want you to have this.

Ryan: What? No. No, no, no, you keep it. I --

Chris: I want you to take it.

Ryan: Thank you.

Chris: You're welcome.

Ryan: Hey, I'm going to grab a bite for lunch. You want to come along?

Kendall: Can't be alone with your thoughts?

Ryan: I'll take that as a no.

Kendall: Wait -- yes, yes, I'll come. Will you be okay?

Chris: Sure I will -- as soon as you leave.

Vanessa: Oh --

Edmund: Vanessa --

Vanessa: Don't you take him!

Edmund: Vanessa!

Vanessa: Don't take him!

Edmund: David, you got to do something now.

David: Mother, mother --

Vanessa: No! No!

Dr. Fishman: We'll have to sedate her.

David: Yeah, do it, do it. Go get it.

Vanessa: I will kill anyone who takes him from me!

Leo: Mother! Mother! Mother, it's Leo! It's Leo!

Vanessa: We've got to stay together --

Leo: Don't you want to kiss me, too? Don't you want to kiss me? It's Leo.

Vanessa: No. No, no, no, no!

David: Come on -- orderlies, get her, damn it!

Vanessa: Don't you realize this is torture? You can't do this. No, no, no, no. No, no, no. No, no, no, you let me go! Don't you understand? This is torture! I will die --

Edmund: Listen, it's going to be okay. It's over, okay? It's over, Jamie.

Ryan: Look, I have no idea what you're after, moving in next to Chris, but I don't really care because it's getting a rise out of him.

Kendall: That's because he hates me.

Ryan: Believe it or not, I think he's actually -- well, you're growing on him.

Kendall: Well, let's hope so.

Ryan: No, it's good that you're there.

Kendall: Finally. One person who's actually glad I came to town.

Ryan: I'm sorry -- did I say that?

Kendall: No. But you were thinking it.

Opal: Honey, I got to get going. Send my love to everybody down there, would you? Yeah, I love you, too. Bye-bye. Oh, just talking to Adrian on your dime.

Erica: Be my guest, Opal.

Opal: So? You look satisfied. How'd it go with Kendall?

Erica: Oh, Opal, I handled her beautifully.

Opal: Is that so?

Erica: Uh-huh. Everything's going to be better. In fact, in about six months, I will never have to look into her nasty little face again.

Edmund: Better?

Jamie: Yeah, I guess.

Edmund: Want to go?

Brooke: Hey, hi. I heard Vanessa had a breakdown?

Jack: Yeah.

Brooke: Jamie, what are you doing here, Honey? Honey, what's wrong?

Edmund: Vanessa had some kind of psychotic episode, and she grabbed Jamie and she just wouldn't let him go until --

Brooke: What? What was he doing anywhere near Vanessa? Why did you even bring him here in the first place?

Jack: So you're saying that absolutely no one had access to those in-room monitors?

Woman: No, security has done a thorough search. The idea that someone was transmitting to Mrs. Cortlandt is preposterous.

Jack: Thank you.

Woman: Sure.

David: So whatever Vanessa heard --

Leo: Was in her head.

Vanessa: I'm not crazy. No. I've never been crazy, you know. I was acting. This is -- this is pretend. I'm very good, you know, because -- besides that, I've never heard voices. I did not hear Proteus, and I never heard -- no, no, no. Anybody who thinks I'm crazy is, well, just plain crazy. Because they are -- those people -- they are the ones that need some help. They really need to be put away somewhere, you know. Because if anybody does know cerebrally because I realize I'm not -- but, I mean, that's it. That's it, you see. I'm not crazy, but everybody else around here is crazy. So that's it. So what's a girl to do? It's so funny. That's -- that's okay.

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

Jake: You are the first person to walk through that door who doesn't want something from me.

Mia: That's what you think.

Liza: You are the biggest mistake of my life.

David: Get your hands off me.

Tad: You tell me where Dixie really is and I just might.
