>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Wolfe: You were there when Leo drew his first breath. You shall be there to see him take his last.

Leo: If Roger hadn't been working Simone so hard, he'd probably be here right now rather than in the hospital.

Erica: You didn't burn my house down.

Chris: I can't believe what I’m hearing.

Erica: I don't believe that it was Kendall.

Kendall: You liar!

Kendall: Oh, she knew I was innocent! Why didn't Erica just wait 10 years before she came forward?

Kendall: Ryan. Ryan. Ryan.

Ryan's voice: A couple days until your trial, right? Which should only last, what, no more than a week?

Kendall's voice: You hope.

Ryan's voice: By then, we will be married, you'll be acquitted --

Kendall's voice: Again, you hope!

Ryan's voice: And we will be so far out of this town.

[Knock on door]

Kendall: Oh. Ryan. You. What are you doing? What are you doing? Get out of here!

Aidan: I knew you were a bag of tricks, but I didn't realize you were a liar, too.

Chris: Erica, I'm still waiting.

Erica: For what?

Chris: For an answer.

Erica: Look, it's done, so why rehash it?

Chris: No, no, no. How about if we just get clear on it? I mean, you've been having your doubts about Kendall's guilt for a while, haven't you? You never said anything to me.

Erica: Because I didn't know anything for sure.

Chris: Oh, but even when I asked you straight out, what did you say? Nothing.

Erica: I'm sorry. I'm sorry I didn't confide in you.

Chris: Oh, but you could go to Jackson. You could go to him. Was it his idea to keep it on the Q.T., or was that idea?

Erica: You know something? What difference does it make? Because nothing I can say can change anything. So why don't you just save us both a lot of trouble and just leave now.

Anna: Leo looks really frazzled -- I mean, that is to be expected.

David: Considering Greenlee doesn't know he decked out his future father-in-law.

Anna: I don't think that she knows that Roger's sleeping with her maid of honor either.

David: Let's hope it stays that way, at least until after the wedding.

Anna: Yeah.

Millicent: Look at Greenlee. She's radiant. Woodruff, where is her mother?

Woodruff: Oh, she's here somewhere.

Millicent: Oh, Greenlee reminds me of when I was a bride. Do you remember, Woody?

Woodruff: You were a vision, dear. Let's find the Count and talk to him.

David: Elk Green and our Justice of the Peace is looking better by the moment, don't you think?

Anna: I think our wedding was perfect.

Simone: Oh --

Mary: No, please, go ahead.

Simone: There's plenty to go around.

Mary: So it would seem. Thank you. So, it's too bad about Roger.

Simone: Yes.

Mary: It's all right. He'll recover. He always does.

Greenlee: What else can go wrong? Now Daddy's in the hospital. Who's going to walk me down the aisle?

Leo: I'm sure your grandfather would be honored. But, hey, don't count your dad out. You know, a good night's sleep and he might --

Greenlee: Hi.

Leo: Okay, this isn't happening.

Nurse: She's barely responsive. I've never seen the drug work this quickly. Should I stop the drip, Dr. Wagner?

Wolfe: No. But monitor her every 15 minutes.

Nurse: Yes, Doctor.

Vanessa: Nurse -- nurse, please -- these are so tight.

Nurse: Oh, the restraints? I'm sorry, but Dr. Wagner thinks it's best that they stay on.

Vanessa: Doctor -- you don't understand.

Nurse: He's come all the way from Vienna to help you, Mrs. Cortlandt.

Vanessa: Quack.

Nurse: I'm sure we can trust him to do what's best.

Vanessa: Please, please, this is too much. Will you just, a little bit?

Greenlee: Leo, what's wrong? Mm-hmm. Leo, if you're rehearsing for tomorrow, tone it down a bit.

Leo: Let's go upstairs.

Greenlee: But our guests --

Leo: They'll be here tomorrow. We have to rehearse the best part -- the wedding night. We want to get that right, don't we, Greenlee? Hmm?

Greenlee: Daddy, what are you doing here?

Roger: Well, I couldn't miss my only daughter's rehearsal dinner.

Greenlee: Leo told me everything. Are you sure that you should be here right now?

Roger: Uh -- yeah -- yes. Well, I'm sure that he couldn't wait to rush over here and share every sordid detail, but if you'll give me just --

Greenlee: Ah!

Leo: Oh -- oh, Greenlee, I'm so sorry.

Greenlee: Ugh! Leo!

Leo: Oh, I'm sorry. Here --

Greenlee: Do you know what this is? It's couture, and it doesn't mix with champagne.

Leo: I understand. I'm a clod, and I am so sorry --

Greenlee: Stop it, stop it! You're going to make it worse! No, give it to me. Give it to me.

Leo: You do it. You do it.

Greenlee: Ah!

Roger: Here, maybe I can help --

Greenlee: Oh! Daddy --

Leo: Anna, you think maybe there's -- that maybe you have something that could maybe get this stain out?

Anna: Oh, honey, I'm not -- stains aren't my thing.

Leo: What about upstairs?

Anna: What?

Leo: What about upstairs? You think there's something upstairs that could maybe get this stain out?

[Greenlee groans]

Anna: Oh, yeah. Let's have a look. Come on, let's go and see what we can find. Come on, come on.

Greenlee: Um -- ahem -- I'll be right back. Everyone, enjoy themselves.

Millicent: Well, I've seen enough for one night. Shall we?

Woodruff: Already?

Millicent: With this group, I need my strength for tomorrow.

Leo: What the hell are you doing here?

Roger: My daughter's getting married tomorrow. Where else would I be?

Leo: Oh, I don't -- the hospital, where I left you.

Roger: Why, so you could disillusion Greenlee about me?

Leo: Look, Greenlee is on the brink of a meltdown right now. If she finds out that you're having sex with the maid of honor, she would --

Roger: Shh. You didn't say anything?

Leo: No, I didn't say anything.

Roger: Naturally, you can understand my concern. After that haymaker, I assumed that --

Leo: Don't assume, Roger. Just zip it up and get out of my face.

Roger: Yeah. Well, I think I'll mingle.

Leo: Hey, if Greenlee finds out how you ended up in the hospital, I'm going to make sure you end up back there -- permanently.

Greenlee: This is supposed to be the highlight of my life, and it's the dregs.

Anna: Okay. So you've hit a few snags. That doesn't matter now.

Greenlee: What would you know? You eloped. You had a mcwedding.

Anna: Hmm. Complete with plastic flowers. I wouldn't change a thing.

Greenlee: Not even the groom?

Anna: Look, you know, when I said "I do" to David in front of the Justice of the Peace -- who was actually wearing a bathrobe, as a matter of fact -- I knew that of all the things that have gone so wrong, marrying this man that I loved, as I was beginning to realize, was instinctively right. You know, I was taking this leap into the unknown, and I was being led there by my heart, not my head, even though I have tried to persuade myself it was the other way around.

Greenlee: Hmm.

Anna: And holding on to that moment, you know, remembering that, can get you through anything.

Greenlee: Anything?

Anna: Yes -- criminal charges, public tantrums -- the works.

Greenlee: I'm afraid that Leo and I won't have our perfect moment.

Anna: Yes, you will.

Greenlee: And then I'm afraid that if we do it'll be taken away from us.

Anna: It's just jitters.

Greenlee: It's not. It's Vanessa.

Nurse: Let the medication be your friend, Mrs. Cortlandt. Think happy thoughts. You'll be asleep before you know it, and you won't even feel these restraints.

Vanessa: But -- please -- just please, have mercy. These things are cutting me. Please.

[Vanessa whimpers]

Nurse: Oh, what does it matter?

Vanessa: Thanks.

Nurse: The dosage will keep you under for hours.

Vanessa: Thank you. Thank you. Ah --

nurse: Is that better?

Vanessa: Thank you, thank you.

Vanessa: Focus, focus, focus, Vanessa. Please wake up. Wake up. Oh, God, Leo. Leo, please. Oh, sweet -- oh! Oh, God, I got to stop that stupid drip! Ha! Ah -- oh. Oh. Oh.

Chris: Who said anything about leaving?

Erica: I know what you're thinking.

Chris: Really?

Erica: Yes.

Chris: Oh. You're a mind reader now?

Erica: Yes, I am.

Chris: Uh-huh.

Erica: With you, I am.

Chris: Uh-huh.

Erica: I know that you're thinking I should have come forward sooner. You're thinking that I waited too long and that I was wrong. But after everything that Kendall has done --

Chris: Right, you were looking out for Bianca. I'm fine with that, but your problem is, Erica, you believe -- still believe you have to do this all alone. That's what bothers me.

Erica: Well, I would love to be able to go to my front door and open it and not find Kendall standing there spewing threats! I would love to be able to actually eat in public without having Kendall show up and spew more threats and insults! And, you know, it would have been very simple. I didn't have to say anything.

Chris: No, you didn't. But you came forward anyway. Why?

Erica: Well, I couldn't let her go to prison for something she didn't do. Then I would be as hateful as Kendall. I couldn't do that. I couldn't knowingly destroy anybody's life. I mean, I couldn't face myself. How could I face Bianca? Or you? I don't expect you to understand.

Chris: You're right. I don't understand, because if it had been me, I might not have come forward at all.

Kendall: So I lied -- I'm Erica Kane daughter. Big freaking deal. Do you mind?

Aidan: You took off so fast, you forgot your party favor.

Kendall: Give --

Aidan: I'm sure you got all kind of reasons why you want to get a scoop on your mom, but it's none of my business.

Kendall: So then go, already!

Aidan: You know what? You nearly cost me my job. I'm not going to let that happen again.

Kendall: Ooh, all I'm all sorts of scared.

Aidan: Hey, you don't confuse me with your ex -- you know, the young guy in the shower the other day. I'm nothing like him.

Kendall: No, you sure as hell aren't!

Aidan: Poor guy probably thought you hid a heart of gold underneath that silver chassis. It's a pity, because it's a pretty nice package.

Kendall: You get out. Get out. Now, get -- get out!

Aidan: You show your face on that site again, or any other part of your anatomy, for that reason, I'm going to call the police.

Kendall: You! I hate you! I hate you! I hate you! I hate you! I hate you! I hate you!

[Knock on door]

Kendall: Leave me the hell alone! You -- Mother?

Erica: I don't believe that, Chris. You would have done the right thing in a heartbeat.

Chris: Erica, sometimes doing the right thing, it depends on the situation.

Erica: You would have let Kendall go to prison, knowing that she was innocent?

Chris: I've learned that when you're dealing with someone who's poisoned, you have to protect your own at all costs. Look, Kendall -- Kendall turned your life and Bianca’s into a minefield, and she ended throwing a whole lot of hell my son's way.

Erica: Ryan loved her so much, and I was really hoping that he could change her.

Chris: Erica, Erica, look, Kendall and Ryan -- they were on a one-way street that led to nowhere but pain. And the bottom line is if you look at that, whether Kendall loves you or she hates you, it's just going to end up in a world full of hurt.

Erica: I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry that Ryan has left.

Chris: Another thing to thank Kendall for.

Erica: And me. Is that what you're thinking?

Kendall: I can't believe you came.

Alice: I wouldn't be anywhere else.

Kendall: But I -- I told you, the wedding was off. There's really no reason for you to waste your time.

Alice: Being with you is never a waste of time.

Kendall: Well, you're the only person in the world who feels that way.

Alice: I'm sorry it didn't work out with Ryan, Honey.

Kendall: Yeah, it's a good thing I didn't get a tattoo, huh?

Alice: I wanted to be here earlier for the start of the trial, to show everyone that I believe my daughter's innocent.

Kendall: Well, there's some good news. I was cleared.

Alice: Oh, thank God!

Kendall: Yeah, apparently, I'm supposed to thank Erica Kane. And I'm free to live my life. Or what's left of it. Alone.

Alice: Come here.

Kendall: Oh, Mom, Ryan -- Ryan was the only thing that mattered to me, and now he's gone! I have nothing left.

Alice: Oh -- oh, you have me, Kendall. I love you so very much. And I'm taking you home.

Anna: Vanessa called you?

Greenlee: She claimed she wanted to tell me some truth about the Count, and she asked me to come to Oak Haven.

Anna: Did she -- what did she say?

Greenlee: Well, the last thing I want to do is be in a room alone with Vanessa, but there was something in her voice. She sounded real.

Anna: You saw her, then?

Greenlee: Yeah. I mean, a lot of good it did me. After about two seconds, she started to babble about strangling me.

Anna: But that's it?

Greenlee: I didn't stick around for the second act.

Anna: It's so odd.

Greenlee: And more of the same. I mean, she probably wanted to terrify me into canceling my wedding.

Anna: Well, no chance of that.

Greenlee: You got that right. And just to make sure that my wedding is going to be Vanessa-free, I'm calling Oak Haven every half-hour.

Anna: Hmm, to make certain that she's still locked up in her cage.

Greenlee: Well, it's even better. They have her in isolation, and she's heavily sedated.

Anna: What?

Greenlee: Finally, there's a doctor who realizes what a menace she still is.

Anna: God. I wonder why they went to such extreme measures?

Greenlee: Who cares? It's Vanessa. As long as she's in shackles in la-la land until Leo and I say "I do."

Anna: Are you okay? I need to step out for a minute. I want to take care of something.

Greenlee: Go ahead. Go ahead.

Anna: Okay.

Greenlee: Go ahead. Anna?

Anna: Hmm?

Greenlee: Thank you. I want that moment with LEO more than anything in the world.

Anna: You're going to have it. I'll make sure of that.

Nurse: Mrs. Cortlandt, are you -- oh, no!

Vanessa: Hi.

Nurse: Oh!

Vanessa: Oh, God. Hand me the keys. Come on. It's okay. It's okay, Leo. Mama's coming. Oh!

Roger: Truce?

Leo: Should I tell you again where you can stick those fingers?

[Phone rings]

David: It's a former patient. I'm going to have to take this.

Guy: No, by all means.

Leo: Hey, you -- front and center.

Simone: Oh. You're all better. That was quick.

Roger: I know when I'm needed. Are you sure you won't change your mind about the book?

Leo: What?

Roger: Nothing. Nothing.

Leo: What was that? "Book"? Oh, you know, I should have known. No book, no money, right? So you slither your way out of the hospital so that you can worm your way back into Greenlee’s trust fund? Is that what this is?

Roger: No, no --

Simone: Exactly.

Mary: Parasite!

Leo: You! Leach! The only reason you're doing a bad imitation of Mother of the Year is so Woody doesn't chop you from his will.

Roger: Ha! I knew this doting-mother business of yours was an act!

Mary: If it hadn't been for me, this wedding would be in the comic strips instead of the society pages.

Roger: How much is this nurturing going to cost Woody, huh?

Mary: I've been at Greenlee’s side for every single crisis.

Roger: Oh, oh, I see. He's paying overtime this time, isn't he?

Mary: And, you? Where have you been? Sleeping with her slutty friend here.

Simone: I am not a slut!

Mary: You lied to Greenlee. You have lied to her. You've told her that we were going to be reconciling --

Roger: That's ridiculous!

Mary: And all the while, you've been playing patty-cake with this --

Simone: If you call me a slut one more time --

Mary: Excuse me -- excuse me -- tramp.

Roger: At least I'm not a rent-a-parent.

Mary: She couldn't have done this without me.

Roger: Maybe it's time that Greenlee knew the truth about her mother. What do you think about that?

Mary: Me? Me?

Roger: Yes!

Mary: You're the abysmal parent --

Leo: That's it! Stop! All of you!

Wolfe: Please do not loosen them again.

Nurse: Yes, Dr. Wagner. I'm sorry.

Wolfe: Your lapse in judgment could have caused irreparable damage. Mrs. Cortlandt is developing a tolerance for the drug. Increase the dosage.

Nurse: Yes, Doctor.

Wolfe: You may leave us. Very clever, Vanessa. Too clever.

Vanessa: No!

Wolfe: Pretending the sedative was taking effect so rapidly. You fooled the nurse, but I know better.

Vanessa: No more!

Wolfe: Such a performance. I had to see it in person, though it was difficult to get away from Leo and Greenlee’s rehearsal dinner.

Vanessa: Leo --

Wolfe: Such a loving couple. So excited about the future, hmm? A future they will never have, unless you cooperate.

Anna: I need to see Vanessa Cortlandt. It's police business.

Vanessa: An-- Anna!

Nurse: Mrs. Cortlandt is in isolation per Dr. Wagner's orders. She isn't allowed visitors.

Anna: Dr. Wagner -- is he new?

Nurse: He's a specialist from Vienna.

Anna: Really? What's his specialty?

Nurse: Criminal psychiatry.

Anna: Oh. Who brought him on to Mrs. Cortlandt's case?

Nurse: Well, I don't have that information.

Anna: Well, where is he? Because I really need to discuss his patient.

Nurse: He's with Mrs. Cortlandt now, but you'll have to wait. You can't go in during an examination. I'll show you to the waiting room.

Wolfe: Unfortunately for Chief Devane, the doctor is definitely out.

Vanessa: Oh, Leo. Leo!

Leo: Cheers. Have fun.

Simone: Yeah.

Leo: Okay, tonight isn't about your scummy agendas. It's about Greenlee. Remember her, your daughter? Your best friend?

Simone: I don't want to hurt Greenlee.

Leo: Yeah, that's coming through in big bright colors, Simone.

Mary: Spare us the lecture.

Leo: You know, the only reason you're here, the only reason that matters is Greenlee. She's put her heart and soul into this wedding, and I want --

Mary: I helped.

Leo: I wanted to elope. I asked her to do it a couple times, yeah, because the further I am away from you two, the happier I get. But she didn't do it because she wanted for the first time in, what, decades, her family's been on the same continent, the same town, even. She wanted this wedding to celebrate the family she's always dreamed of, but you two are too selfish to give it to her.

Mary: I gave Greenlee my complete attention.

Leo: Oh -- yeah, for a price, Mary. You know, I'm just curious. Do any of you at all feel any guilt about what you're doing behind Greenlee's back? I mean, she's obviously desperate to please you people. Would it kill you, you know, to show a little love, a little respect?

Roger: Well, I only want what's best -- uh -- for Greenlee.

Leo: Yeah, yeah, mm-hmm. You skid into every room tucking in your shirt because you can't get enough mattress mambo with the maid of honor.

Simone: Oh!

Leo: And, you -- this wedding's just another rung in your social climbing. Greenlee's done nothing but love and trust you people. And you don't give a damn. All you care about is what she can give you -- a job, a trust fund, an inheritance, right?

Mary: No, we do love Greenlee.

Leo: Yeah, and you're going to start showing it right now. The backstabbing, the schemes, the scams -- pack it in. I want to feel the love, okay? My bride will be blissed out for her big day tomorrow, and you will make sure that that happens. Greenlee's holding on to the one piece of this dream wedding that she's got left, and I will be -- if any of you shreds whatever's left of that dream, you will answer to me. Do you hear me?

Simone: Yes.

Leo: I'm sick and tired of this.

Greenlee: Hey.

Leo: Hey.

Greenlee: Is everything all right?

Leo: Yeah.

Simone: It's great.

Chris: Ryan left because Ryan wanted to. He didn't leave because of you.

Erica: Well, I know you think that if I hadn't come forward sooner --

Chris: Oh, and, please, enough with the guilt already, huh? Ryan was going to leave. He was.

Erica: But you were just -- you were just getting closer.

Chris: Sweetheart, I found out that close is not about miles. It's about the heart. And Ryan and I -- we sussed that out between us.

Erica: I just want you to be happy.

Chris: Happy? I am happy. Look at me. Look, Sweetheart, I didn't lose a son. I dodged a daughter-in-law I never wanted. If Kendall had been cleared and Ryan was still here, they'd be out burning rubber right now with Mrs. Hell-on-wheels. I mean, this way, without Kendall riding shotgun, at least my son may stop once in a while to send his old man a post card.

Erica: Of course he's going to stop and send you a post card. You're not mad at me?

Chris: Mad? No, Sweetheart. Come here. I'm proud of you. I'm proud of you. You went straight for the truth and you spared Kendall and you knew that the outcome was probably going to cost you. Let me show you how mad I am.

Kendall: You're not serious about taking me home?

Alice: I was afraid your coming here brought up a lot of old hurt.

Kendall: I'm really not in the mood for an "I told you so" right now.

Alice: Kendall, I'm not doing that. But can't you see there's only misery here?

Kendall: I can handle it.

Alice: Please, honey, come home where people care about you, where you can have a real chance to start over.

Kendall: No. The only way I'm coming home is in a coffin.

Guy: Greenlee, ma Cherie, Leo has such great love for you. He was telling me about his plans for your wedding and for your future.

Greenlee: Oh, well, marrying Leo is the only plan I need.

Guy: Alors, messieurs et mesdames, I would like to propose a toast to my son, Leo. A man who loves ferociously and who loves well and who has made me as proud as any father could possibly be. To Leo.

Simone: Yeah, Leo!

Roger: To Leo.

Leo: I'll definitely drink to that.

Guy: I'm sure you agree, Monsieur, n'est-ce pas?

Roger: Yes. To Leo, whose love for my daughter has knocked me out.

Greenlee: Cheers.

Leo: Mary?

Mary: Planning this wedding has brought Greenlee and me closer than ever. To you, my darling.

Greenlee: Aw.

Mary: Every moment with you has been worth much, much more than you can ever know.

Greenlee: Aw.

Roger: Cheers. Cheers.

Simone: To Greenlee. Oh. You have shared so much with me, so much more than I truly deserve. I love you.

Roger: Hear, hear.

Leo: To -- to -- to Roger, Mary, and Simone, who, despite the odds, have found a common bond in their love for Greenlee.

Simone: Yes.

Guy: Yes! Cheers.

Greenlee: I've got to stop this, right now.

Vanessa: Just -- stay -- stay awake. Oh, come on, just stay -- tell Leo --

Vanessa: Thank God.

Anna: I don't have long.

Vanessa: Oh. Leo --

Anna: Why did you want to speak to Greenlee?

Vanessa: No wedding -- he can't -- he can't --

Anna: I -- I don't understand.

Vanessa: They can't -- stay -- man and wife -- forever, no.

Anna: Are you afraid of something? Vanessa?

Nurse: What are you doing? You're not allowed in there.

Anna: Oh, I thought Dr. Wagner went in there, but --

Nurse: Well, I'm sorry. Dr. Wagner has left for the day.

Anna: I was waiting.

Nurse: Well, I'm sorry, he's gone.

Anna: You tell him it's crucial I speak with him, and I want to speak with Mrs. Cortlandt as well when she's not sedated.

Nurse: I'll give him the message.

Anna: Thank you. What are you afraid of?

Kendall: I was a breath away from the life I wanted. Ryan and I were -- but it's gone. Erica made sure of that.

Alice: With Ryan out of your life, there's no reason to stay.

Kendall: Oh, no, I cannot let Erica get away with what she's done.

Alice: Why torment yourself? You've have nothing to gain.

Kendall: No. Ryan and I would be married right now if she hadn't --

Alice: If you hadn't -- if you hadn't been so driven with vengeance against Erica.

Kendall: You don't understand.

Alice: You're right. How can something as destructive as revenge be more important than the man you loved or the mother who loves you?

Kendall: It's not.

Alice: I remember the first time I saw you. You were so tiny. Bald as an egg, but very beautiful. You took my breath away. Your first tooth. Your first step. Yeah, your first dance recital. Do you remember? I was so proud.

Kendall: Yeah. You drove me to all my lessons, made all my costumes. You were my biggest fan.

Alice: But that isn't enough, is it?

Alice: Why do you care more about the woman who gave you up than you do for what we've shared?

Kendall: No, Mom. No, listen, I love you. I love you. I do. It's just that I can't let Erica win. I lost Ryan because of her. She was ready to let me go to prison for something that I didn't do. I mean, what kind of a mother would --

Alice: Mother would do that? I wouldn't. But you don't think of me as your real mother, do you?

Kendall: No, that's not true.

Alice: Leave with me, Kendall, now, tonight. Let's walk out this door and never look back.

Chris: Maybe I should check my messages and see if Ryan called, huh?

Erica: Oh, he's going to call. Don't worry.

Chris: Well, I'm not worried. I'm just, you know --

Erica: You're just a dad.

Chris: Right.

Erica: I know.

Chris: Good. You know, let's look on the bright side. Maybe if Kendall is cleared of the charges, she'll take off. I mean, Ryan’s gone. There's no reason for her to stick around, right?

Erica: Oh, yes, there is. There's me. I mean, Kendall's entire reason for living has been hating me, and she hated me before, but now that Ryan’s gone, she blames me for that. She's going to sleep, eat, and drink revenge. I mean, heaven knows what she's going to do next. And why can't she just leave us alone?

Kendall: I would do anything for you, Mom. I would, but not this. I can't leave. Not yet.

Alice: My only dream has been that you find the peace that has always eluded you. If you stay here --

Kendall: Well, I have to do this!

Alice: I know once you've made up your mind -- well, I have a plane to catch. Good-bye, dear.

Kendall: Mom? There is something that you could do to help me.

Alice: What?

Kendall: I -- I've been out of work for a lot of -- for a little while, so my funds are low. Anything you can spare. I'll pay you back, I swear.

Alice: I'm sorry, Kendall. As long as you choose heartache in Pine Valley, I'm afraid you're on your own.

Kendall: I don't need you, Mom! I don't need you, Mom! I don't need Ryan, and I don't need -- I don't need -- any-- anybody in this town! I don't need any of you guys! Nobody! You -- I will leave this town as soon as you get what you deserve -- as soon as you pay for what you've done!

Greenlee: Well, I can't let you go on about me and Leo without giving me a chance to make a toast to you.

Roger: Well, Greenlee, we just want what --

Greenlee: No, be quiet, Daddy. Sorry. Thank you. I -- I've never felt so loved. I mean, with every crisis, you've given me so much support. Maybe late, but I know you meant well. I couldn't have gotten through that bridal fair ordeal without you, Mommy. And, Daddy, you're here with me when you should be in the hospital. And, Simone, my first true friend -- let lightning strike -- I have family and friends who love me.

[Guests laugh]

Greenlee: But most of all, to Leo, who never doubted that.

Man: Cheers.

Wolfe: Did you have a cozy visit with Chief Devane, hmm? She would get more information from a crumpet, wouldn't she? And when she learns the truth, I will be long gone -- and so will Leo, unless you tell me where you hid the money. Your choice, Vanessa.

Vanessa: Not my Leo -- please --

Wolfe: A mother's love -- there is nothing so powerful, is there, no? Such cunning, such perseverance. You know, if I did not despise you so much, I would admire you. Too bad the mighty Proteus never considered that an underling could play the game even better. You're all complications, aren't you, Vanessa? You see, I -- I am a simple man. All I want is the money. No negotiations, no haggling. Either you tell me where you hid the money or you'll watch Leo die. Get your beauty sleep. Tomorrow is the big day. We attend Leo’s wedding or his funeral.

>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "All My Children."

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

Alice: Hello, Ms. Kane. I'm here about our daughter.

Greenlee: Looks like you didn't need that wedding dress after all.

Guy: I'm very happy that you will be attending the wedding.

Wolfe: I wouldn't miss it.

Leo: The eyes don't lie, do they, Mother? Guy du Pres isn't my father, is he?
