>> Previously on "All My Children" --
J.R.: Maggie, she seems pretty tight.
Tim: Yeah, there's nothing like a chick who knows everything.
Bianca: So, you and Tim getting along?
Maggie: Yeah, I guess.
Tad: Maureen Gorman can't be Maria. There's just got to be some other explanation.
David: You're going to have to leave Nevada before Brooke English comes back. Your life depends on it.
J.R.: So I forgot to show you the coolest gizmo.
Girl: Wow. Does it work?
J.R.: Of course it does. Pick a song, any song.
Girl: You do it.
J.R.: You want to dance?
J.R.: Why not?
Girl: Aren't your friends coming over?
J.R.: Maybe. Maybe not. Left it really casual.
Girl: So, it's just the two of us?
J.R.: Yep. It's just the two of us.
Bianca: I swear.
Maggie: No, no, I don't believe it. Bianca used to play with dolls?
Bianca: I'm telling you, I am totally normal.
Tim: Oh, yeah.
Bianca: I'm the normal one.
Girl: Get off me! What are you doing?
Brooke: I am so sick of crying. Oh. You keep giving me reasons. Why is that, you know? Do you want me to crack, you want me to give up? Well, I'm telling you, you can bring on your worst and I'm going to show you what I am really made of.
Tad: I wonder if you can help me. I'm looking for somebody that works here. She's about, I guess, so high, dark hair, goes by the name of Maureen Gorman.
Nurse: She's right there.
Tad: I don't believe it. Maria? Miss? Excuse me, I just want to talk --
Woman: What do you want from me?
Tad: Whoa, I'm sorry. I'm really sorry. I -- I didn't mean to chase you. It's just the woman at the desk -- oh, God, never mind. I've got to ask you a favor. It's no big deal. I'm just looking for somebody that's supposed to be working in this wing of the hospital. Her name is Maureen Gorman?
Woman: I'm Maureen Gorman.
David: I'm not about to leave you alone with my wife.
Anna: Why are you worried? Edmund is here to discuss a police matter, David.
David: Just a few moments ago, you swore to me that you trusted me. Do you or don't you?
Anna: Well, I do, yes, but this doesn't involve us.
David: Come on, Anna, secrets are secrets, right?
Anna: Is it okay if David hears this?
Edmund: David, I don't have time for your paranoia. Anna, I need your help, your W.S.B. contacts. I need to find out exactly what Tad and Brooke are chasing in Nevada.
Tad: You're Maureen Gorman?
Tad: I don't get it. When the nurse in admitting called after you, why did you run away from me?
Woman: Because I was already harassed once today by this woman. She was looking for somebody named Maria.
Tad: That's impossible. You can't be Maureen Gorman.
Bianca: Laurie, are you okay?
J.R.: She's fine, okay? I was just showing her some dance moves.
Laurie: I'm not as fast as you.
J.R.: My beer spilled.
Maggie: Yeah, we can see that.
J.R.: Why are you guys looking at me like I'm a mugger or something?
Bianca: Come on, let's get you cleaned up.
J.R.: Look, I'm sorry. I didn't mean anything.
Laurie: My dad's going to kill me when he smells this beer.
J.R.: Shut up!
Tim: You know what, J.R., why don't we just back off.
J.R.: Why don't you back off, all right? You don't have all the answers, okay? Nobody does.
Bianca: J.R.! J.R.!
Tim: You guys take care of Laurie. I'm going to go after him.
Woman: Look, I don't know who you are or where you get off, but I've been Maureen Gorman since the day I was born.
Tad: Wait, wait, wait. Look, I don't want to cause trouble. It's just that my friend Brooke English swore to me she talked to a Maureen Gorman today.
Woman: Yeah, she about assaulted me. And I'm going to tell you exactly what I told her -- leave me alone, I am calling the cops.
Tad: No, you don't need to do that. There's some kind of mistake. There's --
Woman: Yeah, you and your girlfriend made it. And I'm going to tell you something -- I've never heard of this person Maria person before.
Tad: Maria, Maria Santos grey. You look a little like her.
Woman: My name is Maureen Gorman.
Tad: Forgive me. Is there any way you can prove that? Please?
Woman: Fine. If it'll get the Pine Valley posse off my back.
Tad: I appreciate it.
Woman: Here. You know your friend Brooke --
Woman: She seems like she's on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I thought it might be the heat. You know, it can make you a little nuts.
Tad: So can being duped.
Woman: Why don't you just give up your magical mystery tour? I'm the only Maureen Gorman you're going to find.
Brooke: You test me and you test me and you test me, and what do I do? I just keep trying to pass. Well, no more. No more. You're not going to take Edmund away from me without a fight. You know, I planned to have a future with him before and you know why I let him go. Ever since you took my little girl away from me, I've been auditioning for sainthood, you know, anything, anything to get you to lighten up on me, and now you're going to take my last chance for happiness?
Brooke: This is your fault. You should've never come back here. You should've left Maria alone, and that way we could've just lived our lives. Oh! Damn you! Why can't you be human for a change? Just think of yourself and lie! I swear to God, if you give me another chance at all, I promise you I will do anything. I will lie, I will do anything to keep Edmund.
Edmund: Thank you. I asked Tad where Brooke went. I grilled him pretty hard on what she was up to.
Anna: And he said he didn't know?
Edmund: No, but then he blurted that Brooke was trying to protect me.
Anna: From what?
Edmund: I don't know. He clammed right up.
Anna: Now have you spoken to Brooke yourself?
Edmund: Well, she called me. She said she was following a story lead.
Anna: Oh, Tad doesn't know what this is?
Edmund: No, he doesn't.
Anna: And now he's M.I.A., also?
Edmund: Yeah, and the last time they were both missing, they turned up in Nevada.
David: I don't know. I'd drop this if I were you, Edmund.
Anna: I don't see what business this is of ours.
David: Well, this whole mess just seems like a one-way ticket to misery, that's all.
Edmund: How do you know? And why do you care?
Maggie: So you think you can cut J.R. some slack?
Laurie: If he backs off.
Bianca: Yeah, I don't think you have to worry about that. I don't believe that he's going to even try and hold your hand until the next millennium.
Maggie: And, you know, you don't even smell like beer anymore, so, you know, take it home, soak it overnight, you'll be good as new.
Laurie: Thanks. You know, you guys are the best.
Bianca: You know, you should probably touch up your makeup a little bit.
Maggie: Oh, yeah, you know what, here. I happen to have some makeup. You can find something in there.
Laurie: Thanks, again.
Maggie: No problem. We are the best, huh?
Bianca: Actually, it was -- you know, it was Tim that was so great. He came barrelling right in here as soon as he heard Laurie scream.
Maggie: Yeah. Yeah, I guess.
Bianca: I mean, he didn't even know what to expect. Anything could've been happening in here.
Maggie: Yeah, I guess he was kind of gutsy.
Bianca: Yeah. I mean, the guy just donated part of his liver to save his cousin's life, and then he barrels right in here to save the day again.
Maggie: Bianca, I get it, all right? I'll cut him some slack.
Bianca: Maggie, why don't you just admit it? You know you're attracted to Tim.
Tim: Whoa. Used to be able to hit that rock, man.
J.R.: Yeah, well, that was a long time ago.
Tim: Yeah, before we moved away, before a lot of stuff.
J.R.: Yeah, back when we were sharing the kids' table at the wedding circuit.
Tim: Hmm. Weird times, huh?
J.R.: Things got weirder.
J.R.: Is that why you're sticking around?
Tim: At least I got friends here.
J.R.: I used to have friends, back when I was getting high.
Tim: And now that you're off the weed?
J.R.: All by myself.
Tim: That's got to be a choice.
J.R.: Half the kids I used to hang with graduated to hard stuff, and the rest came clean, so --
Tim: So hang with the cleans, man.
J.R.: I'm off limits. Don't you see the "bad influence" tattoo? Parents practically ward me off like I have fangs or something.
Tim: Oh, come on, I thought the Adam Chandler pedigree would give you miles of slack.
J.R.: Oh, yeah, sure it does, you know, if their parents are unemployed or looking for stock quotes.
Tim: Well, watch out now, you're starting to sound cynical.
J.R.: Me? No, no way. Never. You know, I love being Adam Chandler Jr.
Tim: Laurie likes you, J.R.
J.R.: She thinks that I'm a frisky freak. If I was you --
Tim: Oh, man, you'd still be out here throwing rocks.
J.R.: Nah. She'd be all impressed by my heroic liver donation or I'd have her cracking up with stories of my wacky family or something. What's up?
Tim: Ah, the Dillon alternate universe sprung a cosmic rift.
Tim: But I have a plan.
J.R.: Man, you know, I'd give anything for one of those.
Tim: As I see it, Laurie is still extremely possible.
J.R.: Wait, weren't we just talking about you?
Tim: You're going to listen. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to get Laurie back.
J.R.: And you're going to tell me how?
Tim: Two foolproof steps.
Woman: Coast is clear, Maureen. He's gone.
Woman: He's gone.
Maria: Do you think that that Tad guy bought that you were me?
Woman: Oh, yeah. Completely.
Maria: Then you know what, Suzanne, I -- I completely owe you my life --
Suzanne: Oh --
Maria: Because you saved me from those stalkers.
Suzanne: No, anything for you, Maureen.
Suzanne: What are you doing?
Maria: Paying you back.
Suzanne: No, no, no, no. Please, please, stop. Let me repay some of the friendship you've given me.
Maria: Oh, are you kidding? You went above and beyond any friendship.
Suzanne: No, no, no, it was fun. It was fun. Don't look so scared. I won't breathe a word about this to anybody.
Maria: Thank you. Thank you. Believe me, I trust you. I'm just -- I don't think that those Pine Valley people are out of my life for good.
Edmund: Why do you care that I want to track down my fiancee?
David: You and Brooke make a good couple. I'd like to see you both make it.
Edmund: Thank you. We don't need your help.
David: Well, obviously, you do.
David: No, it's just I was in a triangle with Martin as well, okay? I know what he's like.
Edmund: Yeah, you were obsessed with his wife.
David: The guy craves drama, okay? If you just ignore him, he'll go away.
Edmund: Look; I know what this looks like, okay? Brooke in no way is going to have an affair with Tad. If she is, she's certainly not going to fly to Nevada twice to do it.
Anna: No, that sounds more exhausting than romantic.
Edmund: Exactly. Something else is going on.
David: Well, like I said, don't underestimate Martin's pathological need to control women, that's all.
Edmund: Look, Anna, can you help me, please?
Edmund: Some of the operatives at W.S.B, they must be at Nellis.
Anna: Mm-hmm, there are.
Anna: I can make a call if you want.
Edmund: Thank you.
Anna: I just need a little bit more details from you.
David: Dr. Hayward.
Maria: Help me.
David: This is really not a good time right now.
Maria: No, please, David, I need your help now.
Anna: David? Who's on the phone?
Brooke: I would sell my soul to let Maria stay dead and buried.
[Tap on door]
Brooke: I don't want you to break it to me easy.
Tad: Wait --
Brooke: Just tell me Maureen Gorman --
Tad: Just calm down, okay?
Brooke: Is Maria, isn't she?
Tad: I want you to listen to me.
Brooke: I know, you gently prodded her memory and she's winging her way to Edmund --
Tad: Listen to me!
Brooke: What does it matter? There's nothing you're going to say that matters, nothing!
Tad: Yes, there is. There is, okay? I want you to think back. I want you to remember. Now, you started reeling the moment you found out that Maureen Gorman was a tissue match for Enzo, right?
Brooke: And when that little girl --
Brooke: Sent the picture that Maureen drew of Wildwind.
Tad: Okay, so far, it has led you to take these weird little trips. You have driven yourself to distraction, to exhaustion. You fainted, you tore up a motel room, you lied to Edmund, and all because you think for some weird reason that Maria’s going to come back from the dead and rob you of happiness.
Brooke: It's my lot in life.
Tad: No, it's not. It's not. You've got to hear what I'm going to say and you have to believe me.
Brooke: Oh, just say it.
Tad: I found Maureen Gorman. I met her, I talked with her, looked her square in the eye. She's not Maria. No way, no how. Maureen Gorman is not Maria Santos Grey.
Tim: Just be honest, man -- you're not sorry you find her a mega turn-on, but you are very, totally, extremely sorry you showed it in such a messed-up way.
J.R.: Man, why -- why did I do that?
Tim: Your mom just died.
J.R.: Yeah, okay, I got that, but what does that have to do with the way that I hook up with girls?
Tim: Everything, man. It's going to wrench your life for at least a year.
J.R.: Oh, that's all?
Tim: Trust me, okay, the "skinned alive and screw the world" stuff passes. The missing your mom part --
J.R.: Yeah. You don't have to go there.
Bianca: It wasn't that big a deal.
Tim: Now, remember, "sorry" and then the jerk thing.
J.R.: Got it.
Maggie: And the lady brought over some of those little fruity drinks and, you know, we got to -- oh.
J.R.: Thanks for coming.
Laurie: Thanks for calling.
J.R.: I mean, I'm glad I took my cell phone with me before I left. Look, I was a jerk, and I know that. I was -- I was beyond a jerk. I was a jerk to the 4,000th power, and I know that and I'm really sorry. It's just that maybe next time I could --
Laurie: Just ask before touching.
J.R.: Ask? Okay. I can do that.
J.R.: Good. Okay, now what?
Laurie: Yeah, what are we going to do?
Bianca: Food. I -- I am starving. I think that we need a munchie run.
Bianca: Oh, no, you have to stay here.
Bianca: Well, with Maggie.
Maggie: Oh -- what?
Bianca: Well, the car only has four seat belts.
J.R.: Yeah, and we need a chaperon.
Maggie: Okay, so that still leaves one seat open and --
Bianca: Well, it wouldn't be very nice to leave somebody here alone -- by himself.
Maggie: All right, get good eats.
Bianca: Talk to you tomorrow!
Maggie: That was her weirdest exit ever.
Tim: Yeah, and we both know she's not starving.
Maggie: Then why did she just leave, hmm?
Tim: Her mission? Leaving us alone.
Maggie: What are you talking about?
Tim: Oh, come on, don't even try to cover.
Maggie: Cover what?
Tim: You begged her to clear everyone out.
(Missed the end, sorry)
