All My Children Transcript Friday 6/7/02
>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Leo: Hey, what are you --
Greenlee: I couldn't let you leave without a real good-bye.
Leo: Oh, come here.
Trey: I need more cash, Mia. Large bills, today.
Mia: This isn't exactly the best time.
Anna: Who are you?
Maggie: Bianca and I will be going to prom together after all.
Bellman: Voila, Monsieur.
Leo: Oh. Thanks, buddy. Uh -- merci beaucoup. Oh, oh, oh, oh, right, right. There you go.
Bellman: Ah. Merci.
Leo: What, did you just come from a Jerry Lewis film festival or something?
Bellman: Merci, Monsieur. Have a good night.
Leo: I guess not all Frenchmen hate Americans. Okay, Count Dad.
Leo: Hopefully, you speak better English than I speak French.
Mia: So are you still speaking to me?
Jake: Well, now, why wouldn't I be?
Jake: Last night was incredible, at least for me.
Mia: For me, too. I just meant with Adam and sneaking you out of the house and everything like that.
Jake: Uh-uh. Come with me, girl.
Mia: It just felt like I was in some really bad teenage sitcom.
Jake: Hmm, come on. Come on, come on, come on. Come here. Come back here. Come here, come here, come here.
Mia: Is this any way for a chief of staff to be behaving in his own ER?
Jake: I don't know. Probably not, but it's definitely the right way for a guy to act with his girl.
Erica: Well, it looks like you're all celebrating something. What's going on, Bianca?
Maggie: I was just congratulating Bianca on her big day. You see, all of her graduation stuff came and the whole class got them. Exciting, right? Anyway, that's what's up.
Morgan: Not entirely. Come on; share the good news with Bianca's mom.
Maggie: You little --
Bianca: It's okay.
Morgan: Ms. Kane, Frankie's twin just told us she's Bianca's date for the prom. It's totally déjà vu all over again, don't you think?
Leo: [French accent] Hey, it's like riding a bike. It's something you never forget. Uh -- je voudrais -- to meet --
Leo: Avec le comte du Pres a demain. Hmm?
Leo: [Normal voice] Oh, God, can the bike analogy. This is as good as it gets.
Anna: Is this real? Oh, my God, you're really -- who are you?
Anna: What is it?
David: My hand. I hurt my hand.
Anna: How bad is it?
David: It feels the same way it did when I first hurt it. I think I did it again.
Anna: Um -- okay, let me get to you to the hospital. Quick, come on.
Greenlee: Bonsoir. Leo? Please say this wasn't a bad idea and you're happy to see me.
Greenlee: What are you doing? What are you doing?
Leo: Are you kidding me? Like I wouldn't be out-of-my-mind happy to see you?
Greenlee: Well, you know. You looked so --
Leo: So what? Like the one thing in the world that could've actually made this trip good just turned up in my bathtub?
Greenlee: Oh. I didn't want to crowd you.
Leo: This is crowding?
Greenlee: Could be.
Leo: Oh, Greenlee, I love it. I love it.
Greenlee: Well, you know, we talked about me coming with you.
Leo: That's a massive oversight.
Greenlee: You've got business to take care of -- you know, finding your father.
Leo: Yeah, later. Right now we're crowding each other. Don't spoil it.
Leo: So, I'm sorry about the room. It's not exactly, you know -- I was hoping to get something a little --
Greenlee: It's divine.
Leo: It's, well, you know, authentic.
Greenlee: Like I want some touristy joint that serves American cereal for breakfast. This is heaven.
Leo: I guess sometimes I do do right.
Greenlee: Very, very right.
Greenlee: Why don't you take your clothes off and get more comfortable?
Mia: I can't stop thinking about last night.
Jake: Me, too. Concentrating has been a challenge.
Mia: I'm sorry.
Jake: What? What? I'm not sorry. Did Adam give you a hard time?
Jake: Are you sure?
Mia: Yeah, he's the least of my problems.
Jake: Well, what's going on? What do you mean?
Mia: It's nothing, really. It's just --
Elizabeth: Dr. Martin, we need you. One of our doctors was just brought in.
Jake: All right, listen. Stay here; I'll be right back, all right?
Trey: I was at the park. Where were you?
Mia: You wanted me to bring the money, right?
Trey: And did you?
Jake: Listen; can you flex your wrist?
David: I already checked that. I just need an x-ray.
Jake: You know, being a surgeon, you would think that you would be a little more careful with your tools of the trade, David.
David: Can we talk about this later, please, and just give me the damn x-ray?
Jake: Follow me.
Anna: Okay, I'll wait here.
Trey: Mia, are you there?
Trey: Well, quit stalling. Meet me at our little park bench. You know the one.
Mia: You know I hate this.
Trey: Oh, I'm sorry. I think you have me confused with someone who cares.
Mia: This is it, Trey. It's over after this. This is the last time you're making me take money out of Liza’s account.
Trey: Well, that's the idea, babe. I won't need your pathetic, little stash once Leo leads me to Vanessa's millions.
Morgan: So what do you think, Ms. Kane?
Morgan: Bianca's plans for the prom?
Erica: Well, I don't think anything about them, really. I guess we'll have to go shopping for a dress, then.
Bianca: Um -- yeah.
Erica: I could actually take both of you, if you like. We would go strictly couture. Oh, you're going to be stunning.
Bianca: Both of us?
Erica: Of course. I mean, Maggie doesn't have anyone to take her. Do you, Maggie?
Maggie: No, I don’t. And I don't have money for designer wraps, either.
Erica: Oh, just don't even think about that. I'm going to call in a couple of favors, and we will just break a few fashion rules, and you will be standouts.
Maggie: Great, thanks.
Erica: I must confess, I didn't realize that you were -- are --
Bianca: Oh, Mom -- can I talk to you?
Erica: Yes, of course.
Bianca: Look, Maggie is -- is not -- gay.
Erica: Well, I -- I thought --
Bianca: Morgan and her posse of the terminally dim were ragging on me, and Maggie and I decided not to let it drop.
Erica: So you decided to show them.
Bianca: Well, I was telling Maggie that Frankie would've gone to the prom -- you know, just to get up in their faces. And Maggie volunteered to just fill in.
Erica: I see.
Bianca: So it's -- it's so not a date, Mom. It's so not about --
Erica: Bianca, I so got that. Would you come over here, honey? Sit down with me.
Erica: I would want you to miss your prom? Do you think that I wouldn't want you to stand up to that horrible girl?
Bianca: I -- I just --
Erica: What do I have to do to make you understand? My problem with Frankie is that it never had anything to do with the fact that she loved you.
Bianca: Well, you might've just done that, Mom.
Erica: All right, I have been intrusive. I know that, but I do have a learning curve, okay?
Erica: Which is not to say that if I think that you've chosen the wrong person --
Bianca: You won't nag me about it.
Erica: Well, I'm your mother.
Bianca: And nagging comes with the territory, right?
Erica: You're my baby. And you're all grown up. You're graduating, going to your prom. But you will always, always be my precious daughter, forever.
Bianca: Thank you.
Chris: Prom night, graduation -- only comes around once.
Chris: Yeah, I know must kids, they dust it off, and when you look back, this is --
Erica: Bianca and I have decided that the next best thing to a home-cooked meal --
Erica: Is room service at the Valley Inn.
Erica: Okay? Would you like to join us, Maggie?
Maggie: Oh. Thank you, but I -- actually, I can’t.
Bianca: Well, I already promised Mom that I would hang with her for dinner, so --
Erica: But I'm going to take off right now because I have to go to Enchantment. I have a few things to check on. So then I will meet you two at the room.
Chris: No, I'm going to take off with you because I have a couple of things I want to check on.
Erica: Oh, that's right, you do. Chris and I have some very exciting news to tell you about where we're going to live.
Erica: Yes. Oh -- and I really meant what I said, you know, about going shopping and finding the perfect look.
Maggie: Oh, and I meant taking you up on it.
Erica: Okay, well, then we'll -- we'll set a date.
Maggie: Great. Bye.
Bianca: I'm just going to walk them out.
Maggie: Well, can I help you?
Trey: I just wanted to say hi.
Maggie: You haven't said it yet.
Trey: Is this the way you're always going to be with me?
Maggie: Hmm, maybe.
Trey: Well, enjoy the prom.
Greenlee: Ah! There is nothing like a real Parisian baguette.
Leo: You got croissants and Brie, and you got wine -- Greenlee, you got all my favorites.
Greenlee: Just went into the shops and grabbed whatever I could find.
Leo: Well, then your instincts were right on. Having you here, Greenlee --
Greenlee: It doesn't get any better than this, does it?
Leo: No. But we can work on that.
Greenlee: I hope you brought a change of clothes in that duffle bag. Your shoes aren't waterproof.
Leo: Well, I'll get by.
Greenlee: But you want to look polished when you see him.
Leo: I know. This is it. The number, the nitty-gritty.
Greenlee: The info on your father?
Leo: Once I call this number, everything changes. Or doesn't.
Greenlee: Whatever happens, it's going to be fine.
Leo: Even if the Count is less than thrilled about sonny boy showing up on his doorstep?
Greenlee: We'll deal with it. Together.
Leo: What's that?
Greenlee: Ah. Only my favorite thing in Paris. Come on. Come on.
Greenlee: Don't you know about the Parisian street musicians?
Leo: Well, I mean, when -- when Vanessa and I were trolling for marks, we didn't really have time for quaint.
Greenlee: We'll change that.
Leo: If you say so.
Greenlee: No, there's no ifs about it. When we move here, we are going to live on a street just like this, in an apartment with geraniums on the windowsill and old world charm.
Leo: Oh, I can definitely get behind that.
Greenlee: Oh, we're going to have an excellent life, Leo.
Anna: Sorry, I walked off with this.
Man: Oh, bloody hell.
[Music box plays]
Anna: Where did you get that?
Man: It was my mother's.
Anna: I remember it.
Man: You do?
Anna: Yeah, very well. I used to -- I used to wind it up when I was a little girl. You look exactly like her.
Man: I've been told.
Anna: It's the eyes. Aidan -- Devane? Are you my sister's son?
Anna: I'm sorry. I'm having trouble getting my head around this. So you would've been a baby then, when Lindsay passed away? I had no idea that she'd even had a child. Well, who raised you -- your father?
Aidan: No, he died before he had the chance to marry my mum. His family took me in.
Anna: His parents?
Aidan: My aunt and her husband. They did right by me.
Anna: I knew none of this, none of this. Where -- where did you grow up? I'm sorry for all the questions.
Aidan: We lived in Harrogate -- couple of hours outside of London.
Anna: Yes, I know where it is. I used to go there frequently. I wish I'd known about you.
Aidan: Guess the Devanes aren't close.
Anna: That's an understatement.
Aidan: I know a bit about you and your life here in the states, in Port Charles, the accident.
Anna: You did a little research?
Aidan: It wasn't hard, you being WSB. I had access to files.
Anna: Are you in the service?
Aidan: I just wound up a tour in the army -- G.B., Special Services.
Anna: Oh. That's how come you took my husband down so expertly.
Aidan: One way to meet family.
Anna: Yeah, especially this family. But where were you stationed? I mean, I expect that you've hit some of the hot spots, haven't you?
Aidan: I was in the Middle East.
Anna: Oh. That's a hot spot.
Anna: God. It's a shame this music box is broken, but there's a jeweler in town. I'm sure we'll get it fixed.
Aidan: It doesn't matter much now, does it?
Anna: Huh? Do you have anything else of your mother's?
Aidan: What was she like? My mum?
Anna: I thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world. I wanted to be exactly like her. But then I was a little girl, Aidan. I mean, there was a lot of hero worship involved in that.
Anna: And there was always music. She loved music -- everything -- you know, Motown, the Beatles, jazz, movies. The thing I remember most about her was this laugh. She had a very deep laugh. I mean, it was really strange. She such a skinny girl. She was very slight. I think that she was more fragile, really, than the rest of us.
Aidan: Anything else?
Anna: She died so young. I had no idea she had a baby. Oh, God, this family -- it's a very unusual family.
Aidan: Yeah, you said.
Anna: Aidan, why are you here?
Aidan: I'm not sure why I'm here -- yet.
David: Yeah, okay, that's right. Just take your time.
Jake: Doesn't appear to be any permanent damage.
David: No fracture.
Jake: You got a serious sprain. You're going to be in a hell of a lot of pain for the next week or so.
David: Obviously. At least I don't need a cast.
Jake: Oh, you're going to need a splint on that, David.
David: Yeah, yeah. I'll just get one of the nurses to take care of it.
Jake: No, no, I'm going to take care of it for you. The problem I have is I have to take you off surgical rotation until the swelling goes down and you can hold a scalpel in that hand again.
David: I know, I know.
Jake: What were you thinking?
David: Look, spare me the lecture, okay? It wasn't like I was in a drunken brawl.
Jake: Well, you know, not that it really matters, David, but who was on the other end of the fist this time?
David: Some guy who was attacking Anna.
Greenlee: Want to do a quick run of what you're going to say?
Leo: Ah, no. I've been -- I've been rehearsing this for weeks. Hell, who am I kidding? I've been rehearsing this my whole life.
Greenlee: So, you're as ready as you'll ever be.
Leo: Yeah, that -- now that it's here, I don't know if I can actually go through with it.
Greenlee: You've got backup. Remember? Hmm?
Leo: Right. But what if -- what if --
Greenlee: Call your father, Leo. God knows he can't be any worse than the parents we've already got.
Leo: Yeah, that's a good point. Whew.
Greenlee: That's for good luck. Go ahead. Come on, dial.
Leo: Uh -- yeah -- uh, uh -- bonjour. Uh -- make that bon suis --
Greenlee: No, bonsoir.
Leo: Bonsoir. Je suis -- you do? He speaks -- thank God you speak English. You don't know how worried I was. Anyway, my -- I'm -- this is -- Leo du Pres. I'm -- I was hoping that I could make an appointment with Count du Pres. He's my father. Hello?
Greenlee: What -- what happened?
Greenlee: Who was it?
Leo: I don't know. I think it was an employee or something. I don't know.
Greenlee: Well, what'd she say?
Leo: Nothing. I said I wanted to speak with my father, and he hung up on me.
Trey: I don't give a damn about the rules at the customs department. I'm paying you! Yeah -- well, what about Leo du Pres? He took a flight to Paris this morning? He's not supposed to leave the country! What did you learn about Greenlee Smythe? The Concorde? Yeah, yeah, you'll get your money. Damn it! What is that idiot doing? Boy, you are right on --
Mia: Here's your damn money. Now stay out of my life!
Chris: Wait. Come here.
Erica: What was that for?
Chris: For what you did back there in the restaurant for Bianca.
Erica: Well, Bianca is finding her way, Chris. You know, she's doing her version of the prom and --
Erica: I'm just so proud of her for not shutting me out.
Chris: Well, maybe that's because you left the door open.
Erica: I hope so. You know, her face just lights up when she sees Maggie. I -- see this --
Erica: Well, Maggie isn't gay, Chris.
Chris: Bianca knows that.
Erica: Well, I hope she's not expecting something that she can't have.
Chris: You know, sweetheart, Bianca knows what she's doing, and this prom thing is just two good friends getting together.
Erica: I know, but when Maggie's all dressed up, she's going to look exactly like Frankie would have if she had all been dressed up --
Chris: Well, there's a connection because of Frankie, and they both know that it ends right there. Besides, if Bianca was interested in someone -- a girl -- that's who she'd be going with.
Erica: No, I know that and I accept that.
Chris: Good. They're just going to have fun together, that's all.
Erica: Yes, yes, they will.
Chris: You know, besides, these prom things don't work out for most of these kids. One of my pals took his mom's best friend's niece. Next day, kid went straight into the marines.
Erica: Thank you. I needed that.
Chris: Better get that.
Erica: Yep. Excuse me. Yes, Val? Yes, I'll tell Chris.
Erica: The architects are here to see you.
Chris: Contractors who keep an appointment? I love it!
Erica: You're meeting with contractors already?
Chris: No time like the present, right?
Erica: You've already started this?
Chris: Yeah, well -- yeah, we got a life to get going. We need a place to live. We need -- I got people to see, things to do, places to go.
[Knock on door]
Erica: Come in. Myrtle! Oh, hi!
Myrtle: Hi, Darling.
Erica: It's so good to see.
Myrtle: How are you?
Myrtle: And tell me, how was New York?
Myrtle: How was that wonderful getaway you had?
Erica: Oh, Myrtle, I'm telling you, it was spectacular.
Myrtle: Was it?
Erica: Chris is showing me a side of life I have missed.
Myrtle: Well, that's, I guess, a plus.
Erica: Absolutely it is. Okay, Myrtle, I know exactly what you're thinking.
Myrtle: Well, then, I don't have to say.
Erica: Myrtle, honestly, the fire, that whole horrible night is -- is already fading away.
Myrtle: Sweetheart, these things take quite a long time to settle in, you know.
Erica: Myrtle, honestly, I'm feeling peaceful. I'm feeling hopeful.
Myrtle: Well, just take it easy.
Erica: I'm fine.
Myrtle: Good. Oh, by the way, listen, this came to the house for Chris and I thought I'd better bring it over.
Erica: Oh, it's from the FBI.
Myrtle: Yeah, well, it's registered, and I signed for it, and this slip here tells you what's inside.
Erica: Well, I wonder what it could be.
Myrtle: And listen, Darling -- when you are out shopping, be sure that you bring Bianca by my shop.
Erica: I certainly will.
Myrtle: Okay? All right, Darling. I love you.
Erica: Love you. Bye.
Erica: What in the world? Who on earth –
Mia: Go ahead, Count it. It's all there -- $50,000.
Trey: Oh, I don't need to. If you're short, I know where you live.
Mia: Is this ever going to stop?
Trey: Hmm. Define "ever."
Mia: Don't be cute with me. I want this over with.
Trey: I think we have a basic problem in our relationship, Mia.
Mia: Yeah, you're my problem, Trey.
Trey: See, you just don't get it. I'm the one in charge here. I'm the one keeping your secret -- or not.
Mia: Yeah. And you keep making me pay and pay and pay --
Trey: As long as I want, that's right.
Mia: No, no. If you're going to keep bleeding me, I can't do this anymore.
Trey: Oh, you can and you will.
Mia: What if I go to Liza? What if I go to her and tell her everything?
Trey: Oh, what, that you ripped her off? She'll love that. She'll really love that.
Mia: Well, then, I'll have nothing and neither will you.
Trey: You wouldn't.
Mia: Is that what you want, Trey? Is that why you're doing this to me -- so that I'll crack and then we'll both wind up with nothing?
Leo: Ah! Pick it -- busy.
Greenlee: Leo, you knew this wasn't going to be easy.
Leo: Well, I thought that I'd at least get a look at the guy so he could tell me to go to hell to my face.
Greenlee: I know -- I know this isn't what you hoped for, but it isn't about you.
Leo: What if -- maybe it is about me.
Greenlee: How could it be? If this is what he does --
Leo: Well, maybe this isn't what he does, Greenlee. Maybe I'm the only one that he's trying to duck.
Greenlee: Leo, the Count doesn't even know you.
Leo: Well, he probably knows where Vanessa hid her money.
Greenlee: Well, then he'd have people trained to block any attempt to get in touch with her.
Leo: That's pretty much what he just did. Oh.
Greenlee: Leo, it's late. Maybe you got ahold of somebody who doesn't want to deal with some crazy American on the phone.
Leo: Did I sound crazy?
Greenlee: Any American. Okay, look -- we'll try again in the morning. Maybe someone else will be on duty and they can help.
Leo: So, what the hell do I do until then?
[Church bells ring]
Leo: Church bells?
Greenlee: Listen to them and think about our wedding, our future.
Leo: Greenlee, I just have to take care of this.
Greenlee: It's going to work out. It has to!
Leo: No, it doesn't have to.
Greenlee: Yes, it does because you and I are on track. And if we're on track, everything else is going to be fine.
Leo: Yeah, well, tell that to my sister-in-law, the enforcer.
Greenlee: Okay. Whether it's your father or Vanessa's drug money --
Leo: All right, that's the point, Greenlee. I need to get both of them.
Greenlee: You have to let this go -- for now. I'm telling you, I know in my bones everything's going to be fine. Beyond fine.
Jake: David, if your wife was really in danger, I could understand that you'd have to protect her.
David: I think I just told you she was.
Jake: Well, Anna isn't exactly helpless. She was a WSB agent, now she's Chief of Police.
David: Are you trying to tell me what I should do if some jerk attacks my wife?
Jake: I'm saying that your wife can handle herself.
David: You don't know what the hell you're talking about -- as usual.
Jake: Nevertheless, this is a repeat injury to the same hand.
David: There's no fracture.
Jake: Well, you were lucky this time.
David: My hand is fine.
Jake: Eventually, it will be. You know, I don't get you. Was it really worth it to screw up your work for weeks because some guy started talking to your wife?
David: He wasn't talking to her. He called her on the phone, at her office, he didn't leave a name, and then he lured her to the park! If I hadn't shown up when I did, there could have been trouble.
Jake: All right, David, I don't really care about this --
David: Good, because it's none of your damn business!
Jake: You know what? It is my damn business to make sure that this staff stays healthy. And I can't have my top cardiologist sidelined for fist fights, no matter what the reasons were. Do I make myself clear?
David: Go to hell.
Jake: I'll take that as a yes.
David: Thank you.
Jake: David's okay.
Anna: Is he?
Jake: Yeah, he had a bad sprain, but he's going to heal. He's going to be out in just a couple of minutes.
Anna: Great. Thank you. Thanks, Jake.
Jake: Now, I've told him to take it easy. Just keep an eye on him, all right?
Anna: Oh, yeah. Sure. You know, I hope you can start over again with my husband -- without the bloodshed.
Aidan: Some things are hard to come back from.
Bianca: Shopping with my mom is not that intimidating.
Maggie: Oh, whatever. I'll deal. But did you see the face on that Morgan girl when your mother didn't flip?
Bianca: Oh, it was definitely one of my finer moments. But you know, you're not stuck doing this.
Maggie: Are you uninviting me? I'm crushed.
Bianca: No, it's just -- I mean, going to somebody else's prom? How boring is that.
Maggie: Okay. I'll admit there is a potential boredom factor, but we are going to do our best to not let it kick in.
Bianca: Really? So what do you have planned?
Maggie: I'm working on it.
Bianca: Well, I like your attitude.
Maggie: Hey, one thing I've got is a lot of attitude.
Bianca: That's true.
Chris: We're on a roll, baby. Wait till you hear the ideas these guys came up with.
Erica: How dare you.
Mia: Trey, if you bring me down, you're going down, too.
Trey: Okay, meeting's over.
Mia: What you're doing to me right now is extortion.
Trey: It's your word against mine.
Mia: And what you did with my little boy was illegal.
Trey: Again, it's your word against mine. Do you really want to take me on?
Mia: No. No, I want you to leave me, and I want you to leave my little boy alone, too. He's never done anything to hurt you.
Trey: I have things to do.
Mia: Please -- Trey? Let William be happy with his new family. And let me have a chance with mine. Just stop this, please.
Trey: Yes, hello. I need a seat on your next flight to Paris.
Leo: And where are you going in that cute little number?
Greenlee: I'm dying of thirst. There's a courtesy table in the lobby. I'll be right back.
Leo: All right. Well, don't take long. Now that I got you here in Paris, I don't want to waste a single second.
Greenlee: Hmm. I'll set the record for getting a bottle of mineral water.
[Knock on door]
Leo: Greenlee, I was kidding. Oh!
Anna: Well, David is a little bit rough around the edges, you know, but once you get to know him, he's all right. Oh, hi. Jake said that your hand's okay, there's no damage.
David: Yeah. Officer? Come here, please.
David: I want you to arrest this man for stalking the chief of police.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Erica: Your dirty little secret is out, Chris.
David: You mind telling us why you're a wanted fugitive?
Kendall: Trey, I need to talk to you right now. This is super urgent.
Trey: Is the Count du Pres Leo's father?
Leo: What do you want from me?
