>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Man: Where's my money?

Trey: Look, my contact's running a little late.

Man: It's your problem, not mine.

Erica: Revlon is after a young dynamo. So once Kendall gives them trade secrets, they're going to hire her up on the spot.

Tad: My son's problems started the minute you started creating your instant-blended family.

Edmund: Whatever the problem that Jamie has, it's got nothing to do with Brooke and me.

Tad: Look at this. I look like I致e been in a mud fight, plate of spaghetti.

Brooke: Stop.

Tad: Well, 's true, and it's his fault. You saw that waitress coming with all those curly fries.

Brooke: Oh, would you stop? It's a little bit of ketchup.

[Talking to Jamie]

Tad: I guess it was too much for you to warn me, huh? You definitely have your mother's sense of humor.

Brooke: And we are proud of it. Honey, you want to go upstairs and pack for your overnight with your dad? I left your bag upstairs.

Tad: Hey, listen. I'm thinking about Lake Ramone this weekend. You want to go camping? Really?

Brooke: Do you know what? You almost got him to laugh a couple of times.

Tad: Now all I got to do is keep it up with the sight gags.

Brooke: Uh-huh. Not a problem for you.

Tad: Bah-dum-bum. How about camping? You want to come?

Brooke: Yeah?

Tad: Yeah.

Brooke: Listen, what if we took two tents and invited Edmund?

Tad: I was thinking about keeping it just family.

Edmund: I was under the impression that I was family.

Mia: So Adam gave me the money for the baby's medical expenses, but then Hayley had this better idea --

Trey: Yeah, whatever. Just give me the money.

Mia: No, Trey, listen. There's this world-class pediatrician, and Adam had him flown in when Hayley's baby was born, so I gave the money back --

Trey: You what? I told you I needed cash, Mia.

Mia: Yes, but this way we can be sure that William is getting the best medical --

Trey: Don't you listen? I don't need your damn doctor!

Jake: What the hell's going on here?

Leo: Hey.

Ryan: Hey. What's up?

Leo: Can I get a beer, please? What's up with the tie?

Ryan: Oh -- I知 going to dinner at the Valley Inn -- Erica, Chris, and Kendall.

Leo: Why?

Ryan: It's sort of a new development. We're kind of, like, I don't know, hanging out, like, sort of seeing each other, kind of.

Leo: Yeah, right. You got to be kidding me. You and Kendall "I want to stick it to my mommy" Hart? Well, she's hot. At least I値l give her that much.

Ryan: Hey -- easy, all right? She's changed. Give it a rest.

Kendall: You work here?

Greenlee: Talk about don't let me ever wake up. I mean, Revlon? Glamour, class, power all in one fabulous company.

Kendall: How did you even --

Greenlee: Did I land this once-in-a-lifetime gig? They recruited me.

Kendall: Yeah, right.

Greenlee: You saw all those outrageously expensive flowers floating around enchantment lately? Revlon sent them to me.

Kendall: You should probably stop sniffing perfume oils for a while. Your brain's going a little funny.

Greenlee: Check with the florist. Your mommy stole them from me. She didn't want me to know I was being courted.

Kendall: But you ditched her already. Does the word "loyalty" have any meaning to you?

Greenlee: How about for you? My assistant tells me you're here on a job search. You have something you think we might want?

Kendall: I need to talk to someone with a little bit of juice.

Greenlee: That would be me. Kendall, what's that you have there? Isn't it one of Erica's R&D files?

Erica: It's gone, it's gone, it's gone. Right now Kendall's probably at Revlon. She's filling out her W-2 form. Oh, thank God. Thank God I知 rid of her!

Chris: Rid of who?

Greenlee: Don't bother. I knew you came here with every formula you could get your paws on.

Kendall: Why would I do that?

Greenlee: Because "widdle" Kendall hates mommy? You've been trying to get close to Erica so you could decimate her.

Kendall: You don't know what I致e been doing.

Greenlee: And you were going to do it with that. Next best thing to making her bleed is bringing down her company -- you thought.

Kendall: Go to hell.

Greenlee: You know what's so disappointing? I'd heard you were a lying, manipulative, backstabbing bad seed, so I figured you were smart. Was I wrong.

Kendall: You want to see smart?

Greenlee: You've been played, girlfriend -- twice.

Erica: Oh. Maintenance hired this really obnoxious cleaning woman, and they got rid of her. They let her go.

Chris: Huh. You -- you never told me about that.

Erica: Well, no, it's already taken care of. Look at you. Where's your other cane?

Chris: Right here.

Erica: About the canes?

Chris: The cane -- ah, yeah. I've only got one now, so I kind of have, like, this Fred Astaire thing going on, huh?

[Erica laughs]

Chris: Want to see?

Erica: Are you sure you think you're up to it?

Chris: Well, my physical therapist says that I値l be going solo any day now.

Erica: Oh, Chris, that's fabulous, fantastic.

[Music plays]

Chris: Come on, Ginger. Dance with me.

Erica: Chris, look, I know that you're making fabulous progress, but --

Chris: Erica, didn't your mother ever tell you -- never argue with a guy when he asks you to dance?

Erica: Oh, I just --

Chris: Uh-uh.

Erica: I'd love to dance with you.

Chris: Thank you. Do something for me.

Erica: Anything.

Chris: I want you to close your eyes and imagine we're dancing just like this. The air is soft. There's a warm breeze coming off the water.

Erica: We're near the ocean?

Chris: We're on it. We're sailing on a ship. We're on the deck, and the sky -- the sky, my darling, is full of stars.

Erica: What's gotten into you?

Chris: You. I've got two first-class tickets here. I can change the date, if you want, or I can cancel if you don't want to go.

Erica: You bought two tickets for a Mediterranean cruise?

Chris: Uh-huh. We'll sail up and down the Italian coastline. I want to show you Sicily, Capri.

Erica: When?

Chris: Whenever you want.

Erica: Oh, Chris. Oh, this sounds heavenly. But --

Chris: But -- but you don't know if you can leave Bianca, because of her accident?

Erica: Exactly. And the DUI thing -- I mean, she may have to go to court.

Chris: Yeah, but we'll work around that.

Erica: Well, she may need me afterwards.

Chris: Erica, by the time we get ready to leave to go to Italy, she's going to be dying to have you out of her hair, and you know that. Come on.

Erica: Look, then I have to launch this new line here at Enchantment.

Chris: Well, you've already got that covered. Greenlee is here. She knows the ropes, and she could help Kendall run things.

Erica: Kendall -- yes, right.

Chris: Well, don't you think she'd like a chance to show you what she can do?

Erica: Oh, yes, I知 sure she would.

Chris: And if you give her that chance, that'll prove there are no hard feelings and that you still have faith in her. Hmm?

Erica: I suppose.

Chris: Then everybody wins.

[Chris speaks Italian]

Chris: What do you say about Italy, sweetheart? Huh?

Kendall: I get it. You're playing me.

Greenlee: No. No, not me.

Kendall: Yeah. This whole thing is a setup. You got someone to lend you this office. No, you paid someone.

Greenlee: You still don't get it. I'm the one being paid. Revlon didn't get be Revlon without recognizing talent. They've been tracking me for months.

Kendall: And what were they impressed with? The way that you make my coffee?

Greenlee: Unlike you, I do everything well. It's in the details, Kendall.

Kendall: But Erica gave me a press conference. She said she was going to make me --

Greenlee: That so-called press conference was part of Erica痴 plan.

Kendall: Erica never had a plan for me. She didn't even want to hire me. I forced her into it.

Greenlee: Pay attention, Kendall. That was my first assignment -- to con you into demanding a job.

Kendall: Your "assignment"?

Greenlee: Did I forget to mention that? I've been working with Erica on operation Kendall from the start.

Kendall: Operation Kendall?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm. She found out Revlon wanted to train me for their Paris division. There was no way she was going to let me go --

Kendall: What is the plan?

Greenlee: She put you out front to make the competition interested in you instead of me. That's why she gave you a press conference.

Kendall: That is the lamest thing I have ever heard in my entire life. Everyone knows I don't have any experience.

Greenlee: Yeah. What do you have to offer? Not talent, obviously.

Kendall: Ok, could you please just get to the point?

Greenlee: You have access to Erica痴 files, those confidential R&D reports she put in the cabinet where you could get to them.

Kendall: How could she have known that I would do that?

Greenlee: You're beyond predictable, honey.

Kendall: She wouldn't do that to herself.

Greenlee: She was counting on it! And here you are with the stolen files trying to worm your way into Revlon. Unfortunately for Erica, Revlon doesn't work that way.

Kendall: What way?

Greenlee: Well, most companies would jump on those pirated files. But Revlon doesn't even want to touch them. Or you, Kendall. Erica will be crushed.

Kendall: Why would she give a damn?

Greenlee: Why? Erica wanted to get rid of you. She never wants to see your face again.

Leo: Listen, man, I didn't mean to dis your girlfriend. But of all the chicks in town, you had to pick Kendall Hart? Come on.

Ryan: You don't know her, all right? You don't.

Leo: Ok, ok. Then pass me those chips.

Ryan: And the tough thing -- that, like, the tough -- it's a cover, it's not her.

Leo: Uh-huh, because underneath, there's a sweet, fragile girl who just wants to get out.

Ryan: Actually, yeah.

Leo: Ok.

Ryan: Sometimes.

Leo: Ok. Pass me those chips.

Ryan: All right.

Leo: Just let me tell you this -- watch your back. Ryan: You watch your back.

Leo: What do you mean, me watch my back?

Ryan: Watch your back.

Leo: Yeah, about that -- ahem -- I sort of asked Greenlee to marry me again last night.

Ryan: Seriously?

Leo: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: You asked Greenlee to marry you?

Leo: Yeah.

Ryan: What did she say?

Leo: Yes.

Ryan: She said yes?

Leo: Yes.

Ryan: You're getting married?

Leo: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: You are unbelievable.

Leo: Well, what can I say?

Ryan: You know what? Don't say anything. Don't, don't.

[Ryan toasts]

Ryan: To complicated women.

Leo: Ok, to hot, complicated women. Where would we be without them, right?

Ryan: Where would we be?

Mia: Jake, I知 fine. I'm just -- I知 really just relieved --

Jake: Yeah, yeah, so relieved that you're crying?

Trey: I don't mean to be rude, but we're in the middle of something.

Jake: Oh, I see you are.

Trey: Would you mind giving us a few minutes?

Jake: Yes, I would.

Trey: Ok, how about this -- get lost.

Jake: I think you're the one who's leaving.

[Phone rings]

Trey: I've got to take this. We're not done, Mia.

[Mia sighs]

Jake: All right. You want to tell me what's going on here?

Brooke: Edmund, hi.

Edmund: Hi.

Brooke: You're home. I thought you were out working on your story still.

Edmund: Well, I was, but I called Amy at the office. She said you were at the hospital family counseling session?

Brooke: Well, there was a last-minute cancellation, so --

Edmund: I see.

Brooke: Well, it was so last-minute, I didn't even try to, you know, call you, so --

Edmund: Well, that's too bad. I was just a couple of blocks away when I called. I probably could've joined you.

Tad: No, you can't -- can't interrupt. You sort of had to be there from the start.

Edmund: Your rules?

Tad: No, actually the doctor's rules. Edmund, you can't just blow in any time you feel like it. It sort of interrupts the flow.

Edmund: We're talking about therapy now, right? Jamie's therapy?

[Jamie comes into the room]

Brooke: Honey, you got everything?

Tad: Looks like it.

Brooke: Good. Tad: Come on, sport. I'll have you back by dinner tomorrow, ok?

Brooke: All right. Have fun.

Brooke: Edmund, I知 sorry. You know, I -- I should have called when I knew there was a cancellation.

Edmund: Did you want me there?

Brooke: Well, you know I --

Edmund: Be honest.

Brooke: What? Of course I wanted you there. I was the one who insisted that you be part of it.

Edmund: But it's better for Jamie, maybe, if I知 not?

Brooke: I didn't say that.

Edmund: Did the session go well?

Brooke: Yeah, it was a start.

Edmund: But if I had been there, Tad would have been uptight, you know. It would have interrupted his "flow."

Brooke: Oh, come on, you know? You know, Tad's -- he's had sort of a rough time of it right now.

Edmund: I thought it was Jamie's health we were concerned about.

Brooke: Edmund, you know, the poor guy's been running all over Europe looking for Dixie, because the way she left him -- it was very devastating for him.

Edmund: He's doing it again.

Brooke: What?

Edmund: He's pulling you in.

Brooke: No.

Edmund: You know, it doesn't surprise me that he would try. What surprises me is you're letting him do it.

Brooke: Are you serious?

Edmund: The last time it happened, Tad came back. You thought he was dead. And then he found out that you'd had Jamie.

Brooke: I was there. I remember.

Edmund: You don't see a parallel between then and now?

Brooke: Oh -- Edmund, come on. This is completely different.

Edmund: Tad was in love with Dixie, but he couldn't have her, so he turned to you.

Brooke: Oh, making me a perpetual afterthought? Thanks a bunch.

Edmund: No, he turned to you because you're incredibly warm and generous and you're very forgiving.

Brooke: Well, yeah, and according to you, I知 not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Edmund: I didn't say that.

Brooke: No, you know what you're saying? You're saying that Tad can't have Dixie, and he's coming after me again, and I知 falling for it, is what you're saying.

Edmund: Tad's miserable. You're happy. He can't stand it.

Brooke: Edmund, come on. You know, this is not Tad and me going back to the bad old days. This is Tad trying to reconnect with his son, who needs his father. You know, and right now Tad doesn't feel like he can -- he has enough to give to a goldfish.

Edmund: Ok, that's part of it, but he also feels threatened, ok? And you feel sorry for him.

Brooke: I'm just trying to do the best I can for my son and get him what he needs from his father, and I知 just trying to do that anyway I can!

Edmund: Brooke, do you remember the first time we fell in love?

Brooke: Like it was yesterday.

Edmund: Then Tad showed up. And he had been having a rough time. And he was all alone. And you married him.

Brooke: And you know why.

Edmund: I know that you stayed with him even after you found out he was cheating on you with Dixie. You couldn't leave him.

Brooke: Is this stroll down memory lane leading somewhere?

Edmund: I loved you, Brooke. I wanted to marry you. But you just still hung on.

Brooke: Do you think -- do you think that I知 doing that now? Still?

Edmund: Are you?

Brooke: No.

Edmund: And if you had to do it all over?

Brooke: Oh, my God -- Edmund, I can't think that way. I can't. My God, if I had to redo half the decisions I致e ever made in my life --

Edmund: Ok, ok, we can't do that, all right, but we can damn well learn from our mistakes.

Brooke: What, do you think I haven't? I -- do you really think that Tad is a threat to us?

Edmund: That's exactly what I think.

Ryan: So, when's the big day?

Leo: I don't know. Soon, I hope.

Ryan: You know what? I'm going to give you a little bit of advice.

Leo: Ok.

Ryan: You better do it soon, before the bride changes her mind again, you know?

Leo: All I know is that Greenlee knows me better than anybody -- or anybody ever will. And she loves me, so --

Ryan: That's sweet. That's, you know, seriously, that's really kind of touching. Is this where the violins come in and everything? Because I知, like --

Leo: Hey, make fun all you want, all right? I don't care.

[Ryan laughs]

Leo: I've spent my whole life looking for somebody like Greenlee, and we're together now. We're going to spend every day together looking forward. And we'll see the same things. And you got to admit, it doesn't get any better than that, right?

Ryan: That may be the most profound thing I致e ever heard you say.

Leo: What does that mean?

Ryan: You see, my point exactly.

Leo: All I know is that we're really happy.

Mia: Jake, it's my baby. I told you about him, you know?

Jake: Yeah, yeah, you told me that you put him up for adoption.

Mia: Yeah, well, he's sick. And -- the treatment that he needs, his adoptive parents can't afford, so I told Adam and Liza and Hayley.

Jake: So did they offer to help or --

Mia: Yeah, they're flying in this big-deal doctor from Switzerland, and they're paying for all of it.

Jake: Well, Mia, that's great. That's wonderful. But why does that surprise you?

Mia: It's just -- it's huge, Jake.

Jake: Well, they're family. And that's what family is supposed to do.

Mia: Yeah, but, you know, I知 just not used to this. I -- when I need something, I知 on my own. That's just the way that it's always been.

Jake: Well, it looks like from now on that's going to change.

Mia: But you don't understand. I mean, my dad, he was never around. And my mom, you know, she passed away when I was in high school. And then my uncle's there, and he just steps in, and, you know, I always kind of felt like I was in the way.

Jake: So you're afraid that's going to happen with Liza痴 family?

Mia: They've just -- they've been so kind to me, and I just -- my God, I don't know what to do with that.

Jake: All right, I知 going to tell you what you do. Maybe you should just start letting it happen.

Mia: I guess.

Jake: So, how does this Trey guy fit into all this?

Mia: I tell you, boy, when you get an idea in your head, you --

Jake: That's right, that's right. It's Rottweiler time. Now I want to know what this guy has to do with this. Hmm?

Mia: I --

Jake: Hey. How long have you known him? What is it you're not telling me, Mia? Come on.

Man: Where's the money?

Trey: There's been a glitch. I'm going to need --

Man: You're out of time, pal!

Erica: You're right. Greenlee can keep Enchantment running. She did it when I was on trial.

Chris: And Kendall could do just as well if -- if you give her a crash course in what to do. Hmm? You do want the kid to ace the job, don't you?

Erica: Oh, Chris, you know how I feel. I mean, I was just so brokenhearted when Bianca didn't want any part of Enchantment. I always dreamed that my daughter would join me.

Chris: And now you've got just that, sweetheart. It's funny how life works out.

Erica: Yeah, I never really thought that Kendall would be by my side, but that's what I致e got.

Chris: You know, I知 so proud of you I could bust.

Erica: What did I do?

Chris: What did you -- the whole 180 with Kendall.

Erica: Well, you know, you just do what you have to do.

Chris: And how you let her off the hook after she gave Bianca that champagne -- that tells me you have a heart, sweetheart -- I know that wasn't easy for you.

Erica: I just didn't have a choice.

Chris: Sure, you did.

Erica: Uh-uh. Because, y see, there's is -- this man in my life.

Chris: Really?

Erica: And he keeps on raising the bar for me.

Chris: Really?

Erica: Mm-hmm. And I think it brings out the best in me.

Chris: Mm-hmm.

Erica: So I go along with it.

Chris: Can you go as far as Italy? Take a little time off? Just so we can be alone?

Erica: Do you know any woman who could possibly turn down an offer like that?

Chris: Oh, there's only one I care about.

Erica: I'd love to. Chris: I -- I better get going, because if I want to keep this table that I have at the Valley Inn for dinner tonight, I -- how much longer are you going to be?

Erica: I just have a few more things to do here, that's all. I'll be right there.

Chris: Ok. I'm leaving.

Erica: Yeah, I can see that.

Chris: No, really, I am. Tell me to go.

Erica: Go.

Chris: No. Ok. Look at that, look at that, huh?

Erica: Look at that.

[Chris sighs]

Chris: I'm going.

Erica: All right.

[Erica laughs]

Erica: Hmm.

[Erica dials the phone]

Erica: Greenlee, it's me. It's working. So I need you to call me just as soon as you get this message.

Erica: Oh, please, Revlon. Please, take the bait.

Kendall: You're making this up.

Greenlee: Do you honestly think I got those fat-free lattes for you because Erica asked me to?

Kendall: Yeah.

Greenlee: What are you, queen of denial? Erica promised me my own product line if I壇 help her get rid of you.

Kendall: She hates me that much.

Greenlee: She wants you gone and far away from the daughter she really loves -- Bianca.

Kendall: You're just saying this.

Greenlee: Whatever you pulled in your last reign of terror, Erica learned her lesson about you. She's always going to have the upper hand.

Kendall: She can't touch me.

Greenlee: No? She tricked you into coming back here to save Bianca.

Kendall: Shut up.

Greenlee: She conned you into stealing those files.

Kendall: Shut up.

Greenlee: You showed up here to cash in on them exactly the way she knew you would.

Kendall: I told you to shut up.

Greenlee: You can go to the mat with her for the rest of your life, but you will always lose.

Kendall: No, I will not --

Greenlee: Because she's a winner and you're not. And the sooner you accept that, the better off you'll be

Kendall: Erica gave me your job.

Greenlee: Hello? It was a scam.

Kendall: She said I was fearless and ambitious.

Greenlee: All those times Erica pulled me aside and you thought she was talking me down? We were planning our next move against you.

Kendall: I'm not listening to any more of this.

Greenlee: Truth stinks, huh?

Kendall: She never wanted me to have a shot.

Greenlee: It's sinking in -- finally. Did you happen to take a look in that folder? Hmm? Aren't you even a little curious to find out what Erica was willing to give up to make you disappear?

Kendall: I really don't give a damn.

Greenlee: Oh, come on. Let's take a peek. Oh, my God.

Kendall: What?

Greenlee: This is the formula for her new perfume.

Kendall: Give me that.

Greenlee: Wow! Erica's been working on this formula for the last five years. It was destined to be a classic. I can't believe she would give this up to get you gone.

Kendall: Give me the file back.

Greenlee: Oh, no, no. You have to see what she named it because that is so key. Here. She was calling it Bianca. Do you get what a sacrifice this is? For the first time ever, Erica was willing to give up Bianca for you. Too bad it couldn't happen in real life, isn't it? Ok, you can go now. The job you want is filled, but feel free to leave a resume on your way out.

Leo: So -- thank you. So tell me, what -- what's the real deal with you and Kendall? I mean, why?

Ryan: I don't know. Maybe I root for, like, the underdog or something.

Leo: Really? Kendall the -- I would have said something more like a Sherman tank, only stronger.

Ryan: She's -- she doesn't fit in anywhere. She's trying to figure out where she belongs. She's, I don't know, just trying to figure all that kind of girl stuff, you know?

Leo: And you, what, identify?

Ryan: Nice. I'm just saying that, you know, when Gillian first came to town, I saw her and I thought to myself, "there's no way I could marry this woman." I mean, this user with attitude and then, you know, couldn't have been more wrong about that.

Leo: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. So you're comparing Kendall to Gillian? That's serious, Ryan.

Ryan: No, I知 not comparing Kendall and Gillian.

Leo: Well, you just said the two names in the same breath.

Ryan: No, I知 just saying that Kendall is a challenge, that's all I知 saying.

Leo: Unpredictable.

Ryan: Yeah, well, you should know.

Leo: Hmm.

Ryan: I got to go. I got to go. I'm going to be late.

Leo: Well, I would suggest that we double-date sometime, but I知 not sure we'd survive.

Ryan: We, Kendall's not as scary as she wants everyone to think, all right?

[Phone rings]

Ryan: Greenlee, on the other hand --

Leo: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Shh, shh, shh. That's her. That's her. Hey, Greenlee. What are you doing, sweetie?

Greenlee: Leo, can you do me a favor? Meet me at the Revlon offices?

Leo: What are you -- what are you doing at Revlon?

Greenlee: Ask for me at the front desk. They know where to find me.

Leo: Ok. Well, what are you doing at Revlon?

Greenlee: I'll explain to you when you get here. Hurry.

Brooke: Edmund, I -- I don't know what to say.

Edmund: I loved you. When you walked out on me --

Brooke: I didn't walk out on you. I did what I thought was best for Jamie. And I never stopped loving you, Edmund, ever.

Edmund: I know that.

Brooke: So, what is this all about?

Edmund: When you -- after you left, I met Maria and I fell in love, and we had a family and we were happy, but I never forgot you.

Brooke: But we're together now.

Edmund: I used to look at you and I壇 watch you and I壇 -- it would hurt me because I thought it was unfair that I had so much.

Brooke: And that my life was such a mess? But --

Edmund: It was --

Brooke: But that's over.

Edmund: It was Tad's fault then. He broke your heart.

Brooke: And I broke yours. But we survived, Edmund, and now we're ready to start over.

Edmund: No. Now we're at the part where Tad tore up your life the first time, and I知 not going to let him do it again.

Tad: I guess I should have knocked.

Tad: Forgive me. Jamie forgot his toothbrush.

Edmund: He said that? He spoke to you?

Tad: No. I asked him if he had it and he shook his head.

Brooke: Well, I would go upstairs and get it if I thought I could leave the two of you here alone together.

Tad: Yeah, well, whose fault is that? You think I知 to blame for her bad luck? You want to explain that?

Edmund: Tad, why don't you just go upstairs and get the toothbrush?

Tad: Why? So you can stab me in the back again?

Edmund: Look, I think you're using this situation --

Tad: Using the situation? Our son is in trouble. Don't you understand that?

Edmund: Yeah. Understand this -- you started your troubles long before Jamie stopped talking, ok?

Brooke: Edmund, please, just leave him alone.

Edmund: Dixie went away and all of a sudden you starting sinking.

Brooke: Tad, come on --

Edmund: All right? Now, I feel for you, I really do -- until you started acting like a jackass.

Tad: Look, the last thing my son needs right now --

Brooke: Stop it! I mean it.

Tad: Is some demented episode of "My Two Dads," all right?

Edmund: Well, I知 sorry, but whatever happens with me and Jamie will be better than what happened to you and JR.

Brooke: I want you -- oh -- what is -- no, no. Stop! Stop it!

Mia: Look, Trey -- like I told you -- is -- he's a friend.

Jake: All right, so was he a friend before -- before you moved here, or what? How long have you known this guy? What, a couple of years? A couple of days? What?

Mia: What does that matter?

Jake: Because when I walked in here, I saw him, and he looked like he was giving you a hard time.

Mia: Look, I explained that, ok, I explained it.

Jake: Not really. Now, unless I知 missing something -- maybe I知 seeing something that isn't there, I don't know, you tell me. Does it have anything to do with your son?

Mia: Trey is --

[Pager beeps]

Jake: Oh -- I知 sorry, excuse me. You know what? I want to finish this conversation, ok? But I do have to run to the ER. Ok?

Mia: Sure.

Jake: No, I知 going to call you. I'll call you.

Mia: All right.

Jake: Let me take care of this.

Trey: Exit Dr. Perfect. Your one-man rescue mission just left the building, Mama Mia. You're all out of white knights.

Ryan: Hi.

Chris: How you doing?

Ryan: Where's Erica? Chris: She had some last-minute stuff to do at Enchantment. Where's Kendall?

Ryan: Oh, like mother, like daughter. She said she'd meet us here.

Chris: Oh. You know, this is kind of --

Ryan: Weird.

Chris: Yeah, weird. Yeah, yeah, but in a good way.

Ryan: Yeah.

Chris: I mean, you know, me with Erica, you with Kendall -- who would have thunk it?

Ryan: Whoa, whoa. Back up, back up, back up for a second. This Kendall thing and I, we're -- you know, I知 taking this one day at a time.

Chris: Well, you should. You got time.

Ryan: Well, that's the way I figured.

Chris: Yeah, well, take a little advice from a guy who's missed a couple of boats. You find the right woman, you go for it.

Ryan: So, that's what you're doing?

Chris: Me?

Ryan: Yeah, you.

Chris: [Southern accent] I could be doing just that.

Ryan: So -- wait a minute. Does that mean you're going to propose to her?

Chris: [Normal voice] Well, if, you know, everything goes according plan, yeah.

Ryan: What plan?

Chris: I'm going to take Erica on a cruise to Italy.

Ryan: Whoa.

Chris: There's this little town outside Sorrento, it's called Castellammare di Stabia.

Ryan: Nice.

Chris: It's where my dad proposed to my mom.

Ryan: Wait a minute. I'm Italian?

Chris: Well, your grandmother was.

Ryan: Man! Sorry, wait, go back to the story, your father proposing to your mother. What --

Chris: Well, he wanted to do it right, the old-world way. He took her there so that he could ask her father for her hand in marriage first.

Ryan: That's cool, I like that.

Chris: Yeah, well, you know if you're going to do it --

Ryan: You got to do it right.

Chris: Mm-hmm. So, what do you think? I mean, if everything goes -- and I ask --

Ryan: I can't see any reason why she wouldn't say yes.

Chris: Good. There she is.

Erica: Nice to see you.

Chris: You ever notice what happens when she walks into a room? Hi, darling.

Erica: Hi. Sorry I知 late.

Chris: That's ok.

Erica: So, what were you talking about?

Chris: I was just telling Ryan about the cruise we're going to take.

Erica: Oh. Oh, doesn't it sound so romantic?

Ryan: Yes, it does. Erica: Well, maybe

you and Kendall would like to take a cruise sometime yourselves?

Brooke: Are you ok?

Edmund: Feeling better, Tad?

Tad: J.R.'S problems had nothing to do with me.

Edmund: Do you ever take responsibility for anything?

Brooke: Stop or I call the cops.

Tad: Do you know what the problem is? She picked me and it bruised your ego.

Brooke: Tad --

Tad: That's what's going on.

Brooke: You get out of my house, I mean it!

Tad: You simply weren't man enough for the situation, Edmund. That's it.

Brooke: Stop!

Edmund: That's it.

Brooke: Jamie?

Mia: Trey, stop! I was on my way home!

Trey: Shut up, you stupid bitch.

Mia: What?

Trey: I told you I didn't need your freaking doctor from Switzerland.

Mia: Stop it!

Trey: Look at me! I want money. Get me the money now.

Leo: Greenlee? What are you doing here?

Greenlee: I work here!

Leo: At Revlon? Since when?

Greenlee: Since now. You would not believe the sweet deal they gave me. Are you proud of me?

Leo: Yeah. "Enchantment research and development file." Greenlee, is this the reason they gave you the job?

Erica: So I said, "the heck with marketing, I知 going with my gut."

Ryan: Yes!

Chris: And?

Erica: One of my board members resigned.

Chris: And you sold millions?

Erica: Stock split!

Ryan: Whoo-hoo! All right!

Erica: It was great. Oh, there's Kendall.

Chris: Hey. Erica: Hi. Why don't you join us? Sit down.

Ryan: There you go. Erica: We were just having the most marvelous time. We were talking about something that happened -- oh, my God.

[Kendall pulls a gun on Erica]

Ryan: Whoa, Kendall.

Chris: Kendall, what the hell are you doing?

Kendall: Getting even. You ready, Erica?

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

Simone: You can't go in there.

Greenlee: You've got a man in there. Come on, Simone, introduce us.

Brooke: Jamie?

Tad: Not in the car.

Brooke: I knew it, he's run away.

Mia: Please don't make me do this.

Erica: I will never choose you over Bianca, and if you want to shoot me for that, just pull the trigger.
