>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Palmer: This ought to keep you until something comes along.

Kendall: No, I -- I couldn’t.

Palmer: Yes, you could.

Greenlee: My father is lying in a hospital bed fighting for his life, and you know who he's calling for?

Simone: No.

Greenlee: You! "Come back to bed, Simone. Come to Daddy."

Anna: What is this?

David: We'll start the wheels turning on our divorce.

Leo: Is it all set?

Greenlee: Jake made the arrangements for everything.

Leo: Good.

Greenlee: It's the right thing to do, isn't it?

Leo: Of course. Yes, of course.

Greenlee: Don't we owe anyone this much? Even Daddy deserves to be laid to rest in peace, doesn't he?

Joe: Ready to kick off the new intern program?

Jake: Oh, yeah. Any advice before my first batch of recruits get here?

Joe: Show them where the vending machines are. They're always hungry.

Jake: You're right about that.

Man: Dr. Martin?

Joe: Yes?

Jake: Yes?

Man: Dr. Joe, Dr. Jake?

Jake: This guy's done his research.

Joe: Hmm.

Man: Frank Hubbard.

Jake: No way.

Joe: Little Frankie. How are you?

Frank: No one but my mom calls me Frankie now.

Jake: Well, how is Angie?

Frank: Still saving the world one patient at a time.

Jake: All right, all right. You ready to do the same?

Frank: My mom loved this place. She's a tough act to follow.

Joe: Top of your class, just like Angie. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Frank: Hey, I don't want any special favors because of Mom. I intend to earn them on my own.

Jake: Don't worry. You're not going to get them.

Joe: Well, you sound just like Jesse. Your dad would be proud of you.

Frank: I hope so.

Jake: Well, great. Well, frank, listen, let's get you squared away. Oh, Dr. Zeke McMillan, this is one of our new interns, Frank Hubbard.

Joe: Son of old and dear friends.

Zeke: Welcome, and good luck.

Frank: Thanks. So, where are those vending machines?

Jake: You called it, Dad.

Simone: Hi, Dad.

Zeke: What are you doing here?

Simone: I -- I heard Roger's funeral was here, and I thought maybe that I, you know -- I thought maybe I --

Zeke: Why would you want to be anywhere near that man's funeral?

Anna: Is that the gorgeous man who made love to me all night, or my soon-to-be ex-husband who wants to divorce me?

Waiter: Everything all right, Mr. C?

Palmer: Yeah, good. Thanks.

Kendall: I went to the hospital. They said you'd checked out. I've been looking everywhere for you.

Waiter: Would you like more tea, Ms. Montgomery?

Bianca: Oh, yes, please. And actually, could you leave the pot? Thank you. Hey. Can I help you?

Aidan: Hey. I swore I'd marry the first American girl I saw who drank tea with breakfast. Will you have me?

Bianca: You know, Chris warned me about you, Aidan.

Aidan: Is that a yes?

Bianca: Why don't you have a seat and we'll discuss it over a "cuppa"?

Aidan: Ah, you speak my language.

Bianca: So, how's the penthouse going?

Aidan: That's why I'm here. I need to speak to you about your bedroom, to be specific. Paper or paint? Hardwood floors or carpet?

Bianca: Why don't you just go crazy?

Aidan: I beg your pardon?

Bianca: Well, just -- just do whatever works with the rest of the house.

Aidan: But I thought women always knew exactly what they wanted to do with their living spaces.

Bianca: I do, but I'm not going to be living at the penthouse.

Aidan: You're not?

Bianca: No, I'll stay there occasionally, but it won't be home. Besides, if Mom had her way, she would probably give me a canopy bed and flowered wallpaper and plaster pictures of horses everywhere.

Aidan: Is that not your taste?

Bianca: Not since I was about 11 years old.

Aidan: Do you want me to break it to your mum?

Bianca: What's that?

Aidan: That you're all grown up?

Bianca: You know, I don't think it would do any good at all.

Aidan: Well, since you're a whole lot older than 11 and, technically, I'm not working for you, will you have dinner with me?

Bianca: Are you asking me for a date?

Aidan: I suppose I am.

Palmer: You -- you need more money already?

Kendall: No.

Palmer: Well, why would you gallivant all over Pine Valley looking for me?

Kendall: I was concerned. I mean, your heart condition is --

Palmer: Oh, oh, oh, I see. I see. You're afraid I'd keel over before you could hit me up for some more.

Kendall: Well, I'm sure that's what Erica would have you believe, but that is so not true, Mr. Cortlandt.

Palmer: Well, you know, Erica has a very keen sense about people, and I rather trust her judgment.

Kendall: Last night you showed me more kindness than anyone in this town ever has, so I had to thank you.

Palmer: Well, you're very welcome. Now, you run along.

Kendall: No, I mean it. I don't know what I would've done if you hadn't helped me.

Palmer: If you want to butter up something, here. Work on that.

Kendall: You like to keep it a secret, don't you -- that you're a kind man?

Palmer: Young lady, all I want to do is eat my breakfast in peace.

Kendall: Well, I have a little something for you.

Palmer: I don't want anything from you.

Kendall: Here. It's a present.

Palmer: Good Lord. Where did you get that?

Leo: So where did Jake say we should go?

Greenlee: He arranged for Daddy's funeral to be in the hospital chapel.

Leo: Okay.

Greenlee: It was the only place available on such a short notice.

Leo: Oh, of course, of course. Uh -- come here -- do you want me to call anybody, let anybody know?

Greenlee: Mommy knows. So do my grandparents. And who else is there? It's not like Daddy had a lot of friends.

Leo: But he has the most compassionate daughter in the whole world.

Greenlee: Oh, poor Daddy. You know, he loved parties and this is the best I can do for him -- a quickie funeral that no one wants to go to.

[Doorbell rings]

Greenlee: Would you mind? I need to powder something.

Leo: Of course.

Mary: Hi.

Leo: Hi.

Mary: How's she holding up?

Leo: She's hanging in.

Mary: Anything I can do to help?

Leo: I don't know -- wave a magic wand and make Roger a popular guy? She's really bummed out that the only people who are coming the funeral are the ex-in-laws who despised him.

Mary: Well, we love her. And as inept as a human being as Roger was, Greenlee loved her father. She'll mourn him and grieve for the man he never was, and we'll be here to comfort her.

Leo: That's right, Mary. This service is for Greenlee, not for Roger.

Mary: Just like the wedding you wanted for her, she'll be surrounded by people that she loves.

Leo: Uh, yeah.

Simone: I'm not going to the funeral.

Zeke: Then why are you here?

Simone: I had to come. Maybe I -- I don't know. Maybe if I saw him again or if I, you know, be close to where he is --

Zeke: Simone, I wrote you that prescription for a reason.

Simone: I don't -- I don't need it.

Zeke: Simone, you're agitated. You can hardly complete a sentence --

Simone: No, I --

Zeke: You're on the verge of a panic attack, and you're crashing a man's funeral.

Simone: I'm not having an attack.

Zeke: Whatever. Whatever you say.

Simone: Daddy, why are you so angry?

Zeke: I'm not.

Simone: What have I done that's so unforgivable? What? It's not like Roger was married.

Zeke: Then why were you so ashamed of the relationship?

Simone: I wasn't.

Zeke: But you kept it a secret.

Simone: He -- he matters -- he mattered to me. I just want to say good-bye.

Zeke: Then that's why you're here.

Simone: Yes.

Zeke: Oh. Or is it just another desperate ploy for some more negative attention? Think about it.

Simone: No, that's not it.

Anna: I don't want a divorce, David. I love you.

David: And I love you.

Anna: You used to love me so much that you wanted a baby and a porch swing and, God help us, a willow tree. And now me so much that you want to divorce me?

David: Yes, that's right.

Anna: Oh, you're making my head hurt.

David: Here.

Anna: Thank you.

David: Anna, you're dodging Jackson’s political bullets and a possible prison term.

Anna: Mm-hmm.

David: You've lost the trust of your department and all of that is because you married me. A divorce will give you the freedom to be the woman that I fell in love with. Do you remember when you thought that I was Proteus?

Anna: Yeah. It made for a hell of a dating experience.

David: Yes, it did. I mean, you were incredible, all full of fury and passion.

Anna: Yeah. You were a bit of a challenge yourself.

David: And now what you're doing is wasting all your energy protecting me.

Anna: No, I still have some left.

David: Anna, marriage has changed us, and I'm not sure it's for the better.

Anna: Oh. So you want a divorce to save me and to put our romance back in gear? Is that it?

David: Yeah, something like that.

Anna: Well, then, your altruism is very remarkable, but I think it's a little bit twisted.

David: Will you at least consider it?

Anna: No. No, I won’t. I'm going to live a charade just because Jackson doesn't like who I'm married to.

David: A document is not going to change our feelings for one another. This is the perfect solution.

Anna: No, it's not. It'll be the end of our relationship.

Palmer: I tell you, Dixie -- Dixie was the prettiest child I've ever seen.

Kendall: Look at those curls. She looks like a little doll.

Palmer: Mm-hmm. Wherever did you come by this?

Kendall: It was Del's. When I was involved with him, I got to know Dixie, in a way. She could make anyone feel like an old friend.

Palmer: You know, this was taken at the Pigeon Hollow Labor Day pig roast. Would you look at that smile? Of course, a few minutes after this, she was in tears seeing that pig being roasted over the hot coals. I tell you, eating pork since then just absolutely appalled her. This must've been, oh, 25 years ago.

Kendall: Yeah. Del loved her so much. He said he wished that they were raised together like brother and sister.

Palmer: That's Del, hmm?

Kendall: Yeah.

Palmer: Why did you put the pictures together?

Kendall: Oh, Del did that.

Palmer: Oh -- why?

Kendall: I think he was trying to create the family that might've been. I understand that. Maybe that's why I held onto this until now.

Palmer: Well, whatever -- whatever you -- whatever your motives were, I -- I'll treasure it. Thank you.

Kendall: Well, you've just been so kind to me, it was the only way I could think to repay you.

Palmer: So -- ahem -- what do you want?

Kendall: Actually, I do have a favor.

Palmer: How much is it going to cost me?

Kendall: I would appreciate it if you don't tell anyone about this.

Palmer: Why?

Kendall: No one else would understand.

Opal: Well, you sure got that right, Missy.

Aidan: So, do we have a date?

Bianca: Do you always go out with your bosses' daughters?

Aidan: Only the ones that intrigue me.

Bianca: And who have their own places.

Aidan: You're avoiding the question.

Bianca: You're very persistent.

Aidan: I know what I like.

Bianca: Would you like some more tea?

Aidan: What is it, my haircut or my bold sense of style? You're letting me down gently, aren't you? You've got a boyfriend, is that it?

Bianca: No, there's no guy in the picture.

Aidan: So it's the clothes, then?

Bianca: I'm gay.

Aidan: Okay. So, will you have dinner with me?

Anna: I'm not going to give up on us.

David: I'm not giving up; I'm just shifting the playing field.

Anna: No -- well, you call it whatever you like, but if we divorce, then that means that Jackson wins, and I'm not going to have him bully me out of my marriage.

David: Married or divorced, who cares? Anna, we make our own rules, don't we? So we can make this work.

Anna: Okay, rule one -- no divorce. Rule two -- you keep making love to me the way you did last night. Whoo!

David: Anything else?

Anna: I'm just getting started.

[Phone rings]

Anna: Are you ringing?

David: Uh-uh. That's not me.


Anna: Wait. You should answer that.

David: Answer what?

Anna: You're on surgical rotation, aren't you?


Anna: I'm going to go get a shower.

David: Okay. Go.


Anna: I hate these phones.

David: Yeah, it's David Hayward.

Leo: Finally. You ever check your messages? I've been looking for you all day.

David: Why? What's going on?

Leo: Roger's funeral is today.

David: That was fast.

Leo: Yeah, they're having a quickie over at the hospital chapel. Greenlee and her mother just went over.

David: And how's Greenlee doing?

Leo: Well, besides being a complete wreck, I think she's in for another downer, man.

David: Why?

Leo: We could have his funeral in a phone booth and there'd still be room for walk-ins. How dismal is that?

David: So would you like us there?

Leo: Well, yeah. You and Anna aren't naked or anything, are you?

David: That's none of your business.

Leo: Thank you. Thank you, thank you. I owe you, man.

David: No, you don't owe us anything, Leo. We're family, remember? The four of us. Families have to stick together.

Leo: That's right. Thank you.

Jack: Excuse me. I need to see Dr. Jake Martin.

Nurse: He's up to his tonsils in newbies.

Jack: I'm sorry -- he's up to his tonsils in what?

Nurse: Interns. You'd have better luck tomorrow.

Jack: I see. Well, Nurse Fielder -- is that right? Well, it's very seldom to see a very attractive I.D. picture like that. I'm Jack Montgomery. I'm the D.A. in these parts. I know Jake's very busy, but I need to see him and it's official business. I promise I won't take much of his time.

Nurse Fielder: I'll see what I can do.

Jack: Thank you. You're very kind. I do appreciate it. Thanks.

Mary: It must be the dimples. All you have to do is smile and women do whatever you want them to do.

Jack: Oh, boy, if that were true -- how you doing?

Mary: I'm fine. Actually, I'm not fine at all.

Jack: So what's going on? Can I help?

Mary: I'm burying my ex-husband today, my daughter's father, and I feel nothing.

Simone: Roger.

Greenlee: Don't you dare touch him, you slut!

Greenlee: How can you even show your face here?

Simone: I didn't think anyone was here.

Greenlee: I should've known you'd sneak in for a last good-bye.

Simone: Greenlee, if I would've known that you'd be here, I wouldn't have come. I would not have tried to say -- I wouldn't have tried to see him.

Greenlee: That never stopped you when he was alive. How many times did you sneak behind my back to get a piece of action?

Simone: Roger and I --

Greenlee: You and Roger were a dirty little secret.

Simone: I wanted to tell you from the start.

Greenlee: I know, I know, but Roger didn't want you to. Did you do everything Roger wanted? Is that why he loved you?

Simone: He did not love me.

Greenlee: You know, I was so happy when Daddy started visiting me, but the joke was on me, wasn't it? He was there for you.

Simone: No, it's not like that.

Greenlee: How many times did you have him stashed in the bedroom while you played best friend? Did the idea of getting caught add to the thrill?

Simone: It's not what you think. I really cared for Roger.

Greenlee: Oh, so that makes it okay?

Simone: No, I --

Greenlee: All the lies? Do you even get the enormous creep factor? I can't even stand to think about it.

Simone: I didn't want to hurt you. I didn't want to upset you.

Greenlee: You're repeating yourself and it didn't play the first time. Do you puddle up every time that you get busted for trashing people's lives?

Simone: I just wanted to say goodbye.

Greenlee: Well, you said it. Now get out.

Simone: I am so sorry --

Greenlee: You ruined whatever good memories I had with my father. You are not going to ruin this.

Simone: I am so sorry --

Greenlee: I said get out!

Millicent: At least someone's upset about Roger's passing.

Woodruff: Wasn't that Greenlee’s maid of honor? Why is she distraught? Oh, don't tell me.

Mary: Daddy, just let it go.

Woodruff: That girl was his mistress?

Mary: Can we just not discuss it for today for Greenlee’s sake? Let her bury her father in peace? It's the least we can do for her.

Woodruff: You're an expert at doing the least, aren't you, Mary?

Jack: Well, Millicent, Woodruff. It's been quite a long time.

Woodruff: Jackson Montgomery. What are you doing here?

Mary: Jackson was kind enough to offer his support.

Woodruff: Oh.

Leo: What's going on? Where's Greenlee?

Greenlee: Who were you, Daddy?

Frank: I'm impressed. The neuro equipment is cutting-edge.

Jake: Well, is that what you want to specialize in?

Frank: I'm keeping my options open.

Jake: Yeah?

Joe: Well, whatever you decide, I wish you well.

Frank: Thanks, Dr. Martin.

Joe: Joe.

Jake: Oh, thanks, Pop.

Joe: Let me say I am so delighted that Angie's son is keeping up the family tradition.

Frank: Oh, I can't wait to tell her how much this place has grown since she was here. Electricity really makes a difference.

Jake: Ooh.

Joe: Give her my love.

Frank: I will.

Jake: So, last I heard, you were on your way to being one of Hollywood’s hottest young directors. What made the shift to medicine?

[Pager beeps]

Jake: You know what, I got to take this. So, listen, I'll catch up with you later, all right?

Frank: I'm going to hang here, meet some of the staff.

Jake: All right. Hey, go easy on those vending machines.

Zeke: I was in the middle of a session, Simone. You just can't see me on demand.

Simone: I'm sorry. I -- I didn't know what else to do.

Zeke: What was so important that you had to pull me away from a patient? Simone?

Simone: Do you think I'm a bad person?

Zeke: Why are you doing this?

Simone: Just tell me. Am I bad?

Zeke: You really need someone else to make this call for you?

Simone: That's what you think, isn't it? That's what everybody thinks.

Zeke: I'm busy, Simone.

Simone: I didn't mean to cause anyone any pain. I mean, that's why everything got so twisted. I mean, why can't anybody understand that?

Zeke: I understand that once again you have made a choice that you regret. Now, if you need help understanding why, I'll get you help. But what it seems to me is that what you want is pity. And frankly, I don't have the time.

Opal: Like a fly to honey, aren't you? I should've known.

Kendall: That's not why I'm here.

Opal: Did I not make myself clear last night? What don't you understand about keeping your money-grubbing talons to yourself?

Palmer: Opal, how did you find me here? Are you paying the staff more money to spy on me, hmm? Perhaps the maitre d'? Tommy?

Opal: I am not spying on you, Palmer. I came here to give you this. It's from your son. He hoped it would make you feel better.

Palmer: Well, you thank him for me, would you please? And tell him that I will be at his swim meet.

Opal: Thanks. He always swims better when you're there.

Palmer: This is a private conversation we're having.

Opal: So, go ahead. Talk. Don't mind me. What's the matter? Afraid I won't understand?

Kendall: Ahem.

Palmer: It's none of your concern.

Opal: And she shouldn't be any of your concern, Palmer. I mean, this chicklet here is trailing you for one reason and one reason only -- your money. She's playing you like a banjo. I should think you'd know this tune by now.

Palmer: I don't need you to explain anything to me, Opal.

Opal: Well, I say otherwise. I owe it to Petey and to Dixie’s memory to --

Palmer: Don't you invoke my niece's name.

Opal: Well, then open your eyes, Palmer, please. This bottom feeder has found your soft spot for Dixie, and she isn't going to stop until she has slithered her way into it.

Kendall: I just wanted to thank Mr. Cortlandt for helping me last night.

Opal: Oh, you did? Well, thank-you accepted. Now, why don't you just skedaddle back to your hidey-hole?

Palmer: Opal, that is enough. I want you to leave. Now.

Opal: You haven't heard the end of me.

Palmer: Yeah, well, truer words were never spoke.

Kendall: I'll try to be ready.

Palmer: Yeah. All right, look, I don't know what your motives are in giving me this, but I thank you and I will treasure it.

Tommy: Mr. C, there's a call from your office on line two.

Palmer: Thank you, Tommy. Wait for me. I'll just be a moment.

Kendall: Well, I should probably get going, too.

Palmer: No, please, please wait.

Kendall: Okay.

[Phone rings]

Kendall: Hello? Speaking. Why do you keep hounding me? I know the card's maxed out. I told you the check's in the mail.

Kendall: Or it will be soon.

Aidan: Okay, I confess. At first I was drawn to you because you're drinking tea, but now it's much, much more.

Bianca: Oh, really?

Aidan: You're smart, you're funny, and you're comfortable in your own skin, and that's -- that's kind of rare.

Bianca: I think that you need to get out more.

Aidan: Oh, I get out plenty, thanks. But I just -- I choose to hang with people who are who they are. People with -- who don't play any games and don't have any agendas.

Bianca: Let me guess -- you've been on the wrong side of somebody's agenda recently?

Aidan: Yeah, your half-sister, actually.

Bianca: You've met Kendall?

Aidan: You want to see the scars?

Bianca: I am surprised that you're still standing. Oh, don't look now, but --

Aidan: Does this place have a bomb shelter?

Opal: Oh, what you doing, plotting your next move?

Kendall: What do you want?

Opal: You know what I want. I want you to keep a distance from Palmer.

Kendall: You're the one he wants vaporized, not me.

Opal: Now, listen here, tootsie. If you think for one minute that I am going to stand quietly by and watch you use Dixie’s memory to worm your way into Palmer’s wallet, you got another think coming.

Kendall: Is this the part where I tremble in fear?

Opal: I'm warning you. You try to pick his pocket and I will see to it that you come up with nothing but lint, okay?

Kendall: Would you just step off, Opal, okay? If you think I'm afraid of a harpy like you, you've got it all wrong. And if you get in my face again --

Kendall: Just leave me alone.

Opal: I'll be watching where you sashay that little tushy of yours. Don't think I won’t.

Bianca: You know what? The dining room has gotten a little crowded. I think I'm going to take off.

Aidan: Bianca, are you busy right now?

Bianca: Um, no.

Aidan: How about we swing by the site? I can show you that bedroom that you won't be sleeping in.

Bianca: Sure. Why not?

Kendall: Tommy, hi. I was at the bar with Mr. Cortlandt. Yeah. Listen, when he hangs up, could you please tell him I went into the dining room? And don't mention this call. Thanks.

Tommy: What can I get you?

Simone: A double vodka, please.

Tommy: There's a strong breakfast.

Simone: No soda, no rocks, no fruit.

Simone: Thank you.

Palmer: You know what to do, so do it. I was with a young lady.

Tommy: Oh, I saw her head towards the dining room.

Palmer: Well, then, I'll settle up. Thanks.

Woodruff: You brought a date to your ex-husband's funeral?

Mary: Jackson is not a date, Daddy.

Leo: Time out, please!

Woodruff: It's so like you, Mary. Your own needs always come first.

Mary: I'm here for Greenlee!

Woodruff: Where were you for the first 25 years of her life? Floating around Europe, acting as if she didn't exist, as if you had no family at all.

Leo: Can we please not do this here?

Mary: Well, you were certainly relieved to have me out of your lives, now, weren't you?

Millicent: Oh, that's not true, Dear.

Woodruff: Be quiet, Millie.

Mary: And you, Mother -- you were just playing follow-the-leader. You don't have to pretend that you missed me, Daddy. It's okay.

Woodruff: Greenlee did.

Mary: And I'm paying for that. But I'm here right now, and I'm doing everything I can to help her.

Woodruff: I know exactly why you're here.

Minister: I'm Rev. Connolly. Dr. Martin suggested I speak to the daughter of the deceased about the service. Is she here?

Leo: Yeah, somewhere. I'm her husband, Leo du Pres. She should be back any second.

Rev. Connolly: Thank you.

Leo: All right.

Rev. Connolly: I'll wait inside.

Leo: All right.

Woodruff: All right. Let's show some respect for the dead.

Leo: Please.

Mary: Why start now? You erased him while he was alive.

Millicent: Please, try not to make a scene, both of you.

Leo: This is unbelievable. You guys, just -- for Greenlee’s sake, at least --

David: Hey.

Anna: Hi.

Leo: Oh, thank God, the home team. I almost sent up flares.

David: That bad, huh?

Leo: Yeah. Woody and Mary are throwing punches and Greenlee’s awol. I don't know where she went.

Anna: I didn't expect Jackson to be here.

Leo: Yeah, well, he's Mary’s date.

Anna: Oh, that's nice.

Leo: To the funeral?

Rev. Connolly: Mrs. du Pres is inside.

Leo: You know, I should've known. She's in here.

Anna: Should we go in?

Leo: Yeah.

David: Yeah. Yeah.

Mary: I knew it was --

Leo: Hey. He if you can't keep it down, take it out to the parking lot and beat some sense into each other.

David: Greenlee, I'm sorry.

Anna: Is there anything we can do?

Greenlee: You're here. I couldn't ask for more.

Rev. Connolly: I'd like to make the service as personal as I can. Why don't you tell me something about your father?

Greenlee: Uh -- he was a good dancer. He tried to be -- uh -- he liked flowers. Birds of paradise.

Rev. Connolly: The relationship between a father and daughter is very special. Do you have a cherished memory? A birthday? A special moment?

Mary: I cannot listen to any more insults, Daddy!

Greenlee: Would you excuse me for a minute? Who's Mommy yelling at?

Leo: Why don't you finish up with the Reverend? I'll check this out.

Woodruff: Nothing matters to you more than money, not even your own daughter.

Greenlee: Is that Grandfather?

Palmer: Kendall, are you all right?

Kendall: Mr. Cortlandt.

Palmer: I thought you were going to wait for me in the bar.

Kendall: I couldn't.

Palmer: Why not?

Kendall: Opal's right. I'm no good. I can't help doing the wrong thing.

Palmer: You didn't do anything wrong.

Kendall: How do you know? I'm a liar. Everyone knows that.

Palmer: Did you lie to me?

Kendall: You know me long enough, I probably will. Ask anyone. I'm a hard case.

Palmer: Well, it's very difficult to change if -- if nobody lets you.

Kendall: You have been so kind to me. I never should've approached you. I'm sorry.

Palmer: Now, Kendall, please.

Tommy: You’re knocking those back pretty quick.

Simone: Just pour, please. Thanks.

Woodruff: You are always a taker, Mary. You were a selfish child; you're a greedy adult.

Mary: All I ever wanted from you --

Woodruff: Was money. First, last, and always.

Jack: Okay, this is not the place for this, really.

Woodruff: This is a family matter. Would you tell your friend to leave?

Mary: Thank you, Jackson. I have to wage this battle by myself.

Jack: Okay, I need to make some phone calls. I'll be close by. Woodruff, always a pleasure, really.

Woodruff: When you abandoned Greenlee --

Mary: I did not abandon her!

Woodruff: I was ashamed that my own flesh and blood could be so heartless. But you have reached a new low.

Mary: I did what you asked me to do. I'm trying to be the mother Greenlee needs me to be.

Woodruff: Only because you're out of my will if you don’t.

Millicent: Please, Woodruff, not now!
