All My Children Transcript Monday 9/30/02
Proofread by Kathy
>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Kendall: The person who burned down Erica’s house was Trey Kenyon.
Trey: I have a confession to make.
Greenlee: You promised me Paris. So do we go now or never?
Leo: It can't be now.
Greenlee: Then it's never.
David: You know you're not going to use that on me.
Anna: You really sure?
Simone: "Firm seeks experienced writer in in-house journal." Yes, yes. "References and employment history required." Oh, that's not good.
Frank: Boy, what a night. It's so clear, you can see every star.
Simone: Well, it's obviously still hot.
Frank: Yeah. But who cares? I love an Indian summer, particularly after 72 hours on duty.
Simone: You're on a runner's high.
Frank: Yeah. You look like you could use an endorphin lift yourself.
Frank: Hey, let's drive to the mountains.
Simone: Excuse me?
Frank: Come on. We'll trek through the leaves, get as close as we can to the harvest moon.
Simone: You go. I need a job, not a He-man adventure.
Greenlee: Leo, I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I've -- I've been such a spoiled brat.
Leo: Shh. Just let me talk.
Greenlee: But I'm going to be a good wife to you.
Leo: You are. You are the best wife, Greenlee.
Greenlee: I will be because I'm not going to come between you and your family ever again.
Leo: Well, that's right because you're not going to have the chance.
Greenlee: Leo -- Leo, I've been beyond selfish. David's in so much trouble.
Leo: David -- Greenlee, David is always going to be in trouble. He can manage it.
Greenlee: Yeah, but --
Leo: Shh, just -- Trey and I just turned over that Comronco stock to the D.A.
Greenlee: And? Are you okay?
Leo: Yeah, never better. Jackson just said I'm free. All the material witness warrants are gone.
Greenlee: Just like that?
Leo: Just like that.
Greenlee: Leo, thank God. Thank God you're really free.
Leo: No, we are. We're free. And I'm going to be the best husband. I'm going to keep the promise. We're going to Paris.
Greenlee: Leo, stop, stop. Stop!
Trey: My life is a bunch of lies.
Jack: Okay, well, I'll tell you what, why don't you just take your time, tell your story straight and slow.
Trey: If I do, can you cut me a deal?
Jack: Well, I'll tell you, son, you keep talking. We'll see what we can work out. How's that?
Trey: I'm sure Chris probably already told you that Vanessa Cortlandt's my birth mother?
Jack: Yes, Chris did.
Trey: Well, that's one part of the story. The other part is that I'm not really Trey Kenyon.
Trey: And my real name is Ben Sheppard.
Kendall: Go on.
Trey: With what?
Chris: Tell us something we don't know.
Trey: I thought I was.
David: Liza had no right to give you my research materials. I want them back.
Anna: Criminal evidence is police property.
David: Anna, I cannot let you walk out with those. It'll cost us everything.
Anna: David, make one thing in my life easy.
David: That's exactly what I'm trying to do. That's why I want you to give me my materials. Anna, don't make me do this.
Anna: Don't make me.
Frank: Whoa, sounds like I was just shot down.
Simone: It's nothing personal.
Frank: Right. Well, you know, as hard as you look, you're not going to find a job at this hour.
Simone: You know what? Good point. Thank you. I guess I'm just going to have to go drown my sorrows --
Frank: Hey, no.
Simone: In a double bacon cheeseburger and chocolate malt.
Frank: Well, yeah, okay. You know what the cholesterol in those things will do for you.
Simone: You know, it'll cheer me up. And you could use some of that, too, you know.
Simone: You -- you pretend that you're happy. If you really are, then you wouldn't need me to clap for all your little tricks.
Frank: Oh, bravo, Simone. Oh, bravo. Yeah, you really got me. I'm totally overwhelmed with human suffering.
Simone: Yeah, well, I thought doctors were numb to it.
Frank: Not all of us.
Simone: Hmm. Well, you need sleep, Frank.
Frank: What I need is a better set of images before I close these eyes. Like you hiking through the forest, the moon hanging low and full like a pumpkin --
Simone: Yeah, well, my idea of hiking is crossing a parking lot to my car.
Frank: Okay, we'll stay on well-lit paths, and I will nourish you with a soy burger.
Simone: You're blocking all of my escape routes.
Frank: I'm trying. Do we have a deal?
Simone: I'll go get my boots and bug spray.
Frank: Great. I'll take a shower. I'll meet you back here in five minutes.
Simone: You know, I really can't believe I'm doing this. I have this fear of nature.
Frank: Get over it, Simone. You are going to have the night of your life. I promise.
Greenlee: Leo, Leo, we're not moving to France tonight. We're not going there for a long time.
Leo: What -- what are you -- Greenlee, Paris is your dream.
Greenlee: But not yours.
Leo: The hell it isn't my dream. I dream of red wine and you in French lingerie.
Greenlee: We'll import it. I can't take you away from your family. Not now.
Leo: No, Greens, I'm not going to break my promise to you.
Greenlee: Well, neither am I. I promised to love you and stand by you no matter what, and I accept that your happiness has become a package deal.
Leo: That's just not true, Greenlee. We're loners.
Greenlee: No, we were. You have a family here now.
Leo: And you just lost your father.
Greenlee: I know. I know, and I cut my mom off. The sad truth is, you're enough for me, Leo, but I'm just not enough for you, not anymore.
Leo: That is just not true, Greenlee.
Greenlee: No, it is. Trust me. I've been thinking a lot since I slammed out of the penthouse.
Leo: This isn't fair.
Greenlee: What is? All that matters is that we're together.
Leo: What are you thinking?
Greenlee: You know how you didn't know if I was here, you just felt it?
Greenlee: Well, deep down, I've always felt that you're too great to keep all to myself.
Leo: You know, if I had a nickel for every time I heard that, I'd be --
Greenlee: No, I'm serious, Leo. I always knew that to keep you, I'd have to share you. I just didn't realize it would be while we're still newlyweds.
Trey: I'm sorry, what are you doing here, Kendall?
Kendall: What am I doing here? You saw. Stamp hates me.
Trey: And that's not news.
Chris: For your information, hotshot, real lawyers don't turn on their clients, especially in front of the D.A.
Trey: I am a real lawyer, just not the one I said I was.
Jack: You know, I've kind of gotten this story in bits and pieces. I would surely appreciate it if you could just kind of lay it out for me, son.
Chris: Yeah, why don't you start with your connection to Vanessa Cortlandt while you're at it?
Trey: You want to start at the beginning? I was rejected at birth. I hated my real mother, but I always dreamed that she would show up and rescue me from being some kind of case number instead of some kid who --
Chris: And your dad?
Trey: Just a blank on my birth certificate, which I was able to track down along with Vanessa Cortlandt's name.
Chris: And when you discovered that your mother was an alleged drug lord, your first reaction was, "Hey, let me defend her"?
Trey: It was a way for me to get close to her.
Chris: You couldn't come up with a more creative way to say, "Hi, Mom"?
Trey: She'd already thrown me away once, so no. I know I broke the law and every moral code that I believe in.
Chris: And so to do your penance, you want to walk, you want a free pass.
Trey: I'm a lawyer. I was trained to ask for a deal.
Jack: Good for you, son. Just sitting here, I can think of a slew of charges stemming from the identity theft alone, and I have a feeling that's just the tip of an iceberg. But you know what? I like your attitude, Trey -- or shall I call you Ben?
Trey: I'd like to stick to Trey for now. Do you really think we can work something out?
Jack: Oh, I'm certain we can come to a just solution here, sure.
Trey: Well, no matter what, I fully intend to cooperate with your office and any federal investigation, as well.
Chris: At this point, you don't have any choice, do you? Don't leave town.
Trey: I wouldn't dream of it.
Jack: I'll be in touch.
Chris: You can leave now.
Trey: Is my client through here, too?
Jack: Well, that's up to Stamp. He's the one who keeps hauling her in here time after time.
Chris: For now. But don't forget, Kendall, I'm on you all the time.
Trey: Great, because I need a ride home. Leo drove us here.
Trey: I appreciate you being so decent.
Jack: Don't mention it.
Kendall: I appreciate you guys not blowing my cover.
Chris: So, you believe Trey's confession?
Jack: Not a bloody word. Do you?
Jack: But I'm not so sure about Kendall.
Anna: Step back, put your arms up.
David: Please, please, do not bring this to a place of no return.
Anna: Oh, you already did that. You killed this relationship about a thousand lies ago.
David: That is not true.
Anna: It is.
David: Anna, I know that I push limits. And I know that I might not have been as forthcoming as I ought to have been.
Anna: I'll tell you one thing, you never fail to astonish me.
David: Anna, listen to me. You have to. I mean, look at you. Your face has stress all over it.
Anna: Stress is all over my life.
David: You're flushed. You're on the verge of hyperventilating, and you're hell-bent on making the most important decision of our lives.
Anna: I'm trying to stop you.
David: You're not thinking clearly.
Anna: Oh, you know, I feel frighteningly clear.
David: All right. For the sake of our child, that baby that we both already love, I'm going to do the hardest thing that I've ever had to do in my entire life, Anna. I'm going to defy you. Someday you're going to thank me for this. Now, this is what's going to happen. I'm going to walk over there, I'm going to take that bag with me, and you're going to forget that you ever saw it, and I'm going to walk out of here. Do you understand?
Anna: Don't take another step.
David: Anna --
Anna: Don’t. Don't say another word. I'm not going to be used or tricked anymore. I'd rather kill you first. This is what's going to happen, David. I'm leaving here with this evidence. I'm taking it to forensics. They'll compare your research to Maria’s test results. They'll discover that you unlawfully administered a class-one controlled substance and in the process committed aggravated assault. Them I'm going to get a warrant for your arrest. Next time you see me, I'll put you in handcuffs, take you down to booking, and slam you in jail.
Simone: You know, if I get bitten tonight, I'm going to hold you personally responsible. Oh, Simone, don't even think about it. Don't even go there in your mind, girl.
Frank: No. No. No, it's my fault. No, it's my fault.
Simone: Frank? Are you okay? Frank?
Frank: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Sorry.
Simone: No, you were just having that nightmare.
Frank: Yeah. Did I talk?
Simone: Well, you know. It was a bad one. Do you want to tell me about the story? The rest of it?
Frank: You know, my R.E.M. sleep is pretty active, but I don't remember my dreams.
Simone: Oh, you know, I don't mean to pry.
Frank: No --
Simone: I know -- I mean, I hate inquiring minds.
Frank: It was nothing, really.
Simone: Look, you need to rest, and I need to go find a job.
Frank: Yeah. As what, a night watchwoman?
Simone: Well, maybe. Or maybe a waitress at an all-night diner.
Frank: Hey, I thought I convinced you to go on a hike.
Simone: Yeah, you did. Adios.
Frank: Please, Simone, I didn't mean to scare you.
Simone: You didn't scare me, Frank. I'm letting you down easy.
Leo: Greenlee, listen to me. You're my one and only. Nobody in my life comes before you.
Greenlee: That may be true, but I also know that there's a family right behind me.
Leo: Way behind you. Trust me.
Greenlee: Picture this scenario -- you and me at the airport. Me in a fab 3/4-length dress, you in your aviator sunglasses.
Greenlee: Sure. Now they call our Concorde flight, and we wave adieu to David, Trey, and your mother, who, of course, all have matching electronic surveillance bracelets, since they're all out on bail awaiting their trials that could send them away for the rest of their natural lives.
Leo: Nice, nice.
Greenlee: The truth. But on a brighter note, also waving a tearful good-bye is your cousin Maggie, who you feel bad about ditching because she's still mourning the death of her twin. So you're trying to hold it together by looking at Anna, who is chowing on a pickle and cream cheese sandwich because she's pregnant with your new niece or nephew.
Leo: What do you want me to say?
Greenlee: What you need to admit to both of us -- that you can't leave your family now.
Leo: I can't ask you to stay here, though, either, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Yes, you can. You can ask me to accept you the way you've always accepted me.
Greenlee: When people in my life betray me like Simone, Mommy, Daddy, I just cut them off. But you've never tried to change that about me. You've never said, "Be like me." Even though I outright beg you to cope my way, beg you to run screaming in the opposite direction from your family.
Leo: Well, you're -- you're a lot nicer than you like to think. You are.
Greenlee: Don't tell anyone. So the outcome of our one and only marital fight is this -- I will stay here with you in Pine Valley even though --
Leo: Even though what?
Greenlee: Even though I have the same sick feeling I had before the wedding, before Daddy was killed.
Leo: Greenlee --
Greenlee: No, Leo, I'm going to be a good wife to you, and I know that means staying here, even though it scares me to death.
Kendall: Got to hand it to you, Sheppy. Your sob story is a world-class smokescreen. You must be hiding something big.
Trey: Go to hell, Kendall.
Kendall: You don't have to get all defensive. I was actually paying you a compliment.
Trey: Excuse me?
Kendall: Well, I've used my own messed-up childhood to excuse a lot of bad behavior, but you bring that to a whole new level.
Trey: Look, don't try to rewrite the past, Kendall. You had an excellent childhood. You were adopted as a baby by an adoring mother and a doting father.
Kendall: Yeah, dull and duller. I knew I was meant for better. You know, growing up, I used to have posters of Erica Kane plastered all over my room. I mean, I worshipped that woman. Finding out that she dumped me at birth really messed me up.
Trey: Boo-hoo. You want to have a monster mommy contest? I will win hands down.
Kendall: Okay, so Vanessa’s in a class all her own, but she was still pure protective mommy to you in one way.
Trey: Which way is that?
Kendall: Well, you saw how she flipped out when she thought you and I were an item. "Get your paws off my son, you piece of trash." What was that?
Trey: Yeah, that was weird, wasn't it? Just the idea of you and me together made her sick.
Kendall: Yeah. Thanks for making that extra clear.
Trey: Imagine what it must take to spook a homicidal drug queen. And you and I hooking up is her worst nightmare? I wonder why that is.
Anna: Get me Jackson, please. Ooh. Jackson, it's Anna. I think I have the goods to arrest David. Call me back.
Anna: We may have just made a child.
Anna: So this evidence is more important to you than me or your child?
David: Anna, give me the bag.
Anna: I can't do that.
David: I'm sorry to hear that.
Anna: Oh, David, what have you done to us?
Frank: Why don't you stow the cool chick act, Simone. You know you want me.
Simone: Oh, duck -- it's the attack of the killer ego.
Frank: Yeah, and the truth.
Simone: You know, you are absolutely unbelievable. You doctors -- have you ever even toyed with the idea that you're not God's gift to women?
Frank: No, I was never even tempted. See, when you graduate, they give you, like, 1,000 cc of ego growth serum with your diploma.
Simone: Oh, and clearly you've taken all of yours.
Frank: Nope. Never even touched it. I'm a natural. I never even peeked at the list of phone numbers they give you of all the hotties at your hospital.
Simone: Oh, well, maybe you should take a peek. I mean, that is if you want to find someone to hug a tree with. Here, you know, take my bug spray.
Frank: Hey --
Simone: It's about to expire anyway. Happy trails.
Frank: Oh, okay, so you'd rather stuff your face with a hamburger than spend the night with a man? Is that any man?
Simone: No, actually, I'd rather spend the night driving to Philly, scarfing a cheese steak, and taking in a show at the Art Institute.
Simone: So sorry, ego boy, the sad truth is I'm out of your league.
Frank: Which exhibit do you want to see, the Kandinsky paintings or the Weegee photographs?
Leo: Before our wedding day, I promised you that I was never going to let anyone or anything hurt you. And I feel like all I've done since then is let you down.
Greenlee: You've tried.
Leo: Greenlee, I got your father killed.
Greenlee: That wasn't your fault.
Leo: The bullet was meant for me.
Greenlee: And thank heaven it didn't get you.
Leo: Heaven has nothing to do with this, Greenlee. He was in the line of fire because of me and my mother hoarding her drug money.
Greenlee: You're not responsible for Vanessa’s crimes.
Leo: Well, least she's Nessa now.
Greenlee: No comment.
Leo: Oh, come on, you have to admit that it's an amazing upgrade.
Leo: Proven. Because of her, we found Vanessa’s hidden funds and, in turn, I got cleared from the law.
Greenlee: No, no, you did that. You ran halfway around the world searching for that money. You got your heart ripped out by the Count du Pres. Now you're falling for baby face.
Leo: Who? Trey?
Leo: Oh, you're not going to bring up Erica’s house again, are you?
Greenlee: Yes. He burned down Erika’s house.
Leo: You can't prove that.
Greenlee: You can't prove that he didn't. You don't know what this guy really wants and what he's capable of.
Leo: Would you relax? Please, just relax. When I first met the guy, I thought he was a foosball, too, Greenlee, but you're the one who convinced me that I should get closer to him, that I should get to know him.
Greenlee: Well, my mistake.
Leo: My brother.
Greenlee: I thought our marriage's one and only fight was over.
Leo: It is. It is. You're right. There is a part of me that doesn't want to leave my family behind right now. But -- and I know that they're not the most conventional group, Greenlee, but they're mine. And there would be a huge hole in my life if I let them --
Greenlee: Got it, Leo. Got it.
Leo: But -- but if you're having this feeling, this doomsday scenario in Pine Valley, then I'm going to believe that because you were right before. So let's just get the hell out of here. Let's go tonight.
Kendall: Don't read into vanessa's little hissy fit. She probably just thinks I have some agenda for you.
Trey: How do you figure?
Kendall: She's a user, and users think everyone has an angle, right?
Trey: Well, Leo seems to believe that Vanessa has joined the ranks of the pure-hearted.
Kendall: Maybe she's vamping. Maybe she's still hiding the Proteus millions. What do you think?
Trey: That Leo knows Vanessa better than I do.
Kendall: I got to get ready for work.
Trey: Wait. You never told me why the police dragged you in to the station for questioning. What does Stamp want to know?
[Knock on door]
Jack: Hey, Anna, have you seen -- Anna? Anna? My God. Come on, come on. I need an ambulance at the police station, chief's office, right away! Anna, can you hear me? Anna?
Frank: So I'll go get my museum duds on. The Art Institute's open late tonight.
Simone: Okay, okay, you win, you win. I -- you know, you called my bluff. I deserve it.
Frank: What bluff?
Simone: Oh, like you want to drag around a museum with me? I don't think so.
Frank: Well, actually, Kandinsky's colors have rocked me since I was a kid, and, gosh, to call Weegee a photojournalist instead of an artist, that's kind of sacrilegious, don't you think?
Simone: Okay, so you've been around the block before med school.
Simone: I'm sorry I dissed you. You are definitely a different kind of guy.
Frank: Is that different good or different bad?
Simone: Different very good.
Leo: Greenlee, where are you?
Leo: Greenlee, what's wrong?
Greenlee: I'll die if I lose you.
Leo: You're not going to lose me.
Greenlee: But I can't do it.
Leo: Do what?
Greenlee: I can't take you away from your family when you're not ready.
Leo: Honey, we just had this conversation. I won.
Greenlee: Oh, come on, Leo. We both know what caused my panic attack.
Leo: We do?
Greenlee: I got too close.
Leo: To what?
Greenlee: Paris. Paris. Living there with my husband. I mean, that's been my dream since I got my Bonjour Barbie. Suddenly, it seemed so real that I just freaked out.
Leo: No, you freaked out when you offered to stay in Pine Valley.
Greenlee: Anyway, anyway, Paris isn't going anywhere, and I really need to brush up on my tense verbs. You know, that indefinite tense kills me.
Leo: Okay, I -- I normally get you, but tonight I'm lost. So staying in Pine Valley gives you the shakes, and going to Paris makes you sob. So I'm just going to ask you straight out, and I need you to answer me straight out from the heart, okay?
Leo: Do you want us to go to Paris or not?
Kendall: I was at the police station --
Kendall: Because Chris Stamp hates me and he thinks I'm responsible for driving away Ryan.
Trey: You did drive Ryan away.
Kendall: It was probably just another chance for him to hassle me, that's all. I can't -- why are we even talking about Chris? I mean, we are all alone here and Greenlee can wait.
Trey: You can drop the sex kitten act and answer my question. What did Chris Stamp want to know?
Joe: Any sign of stroke or cardiac event?
Paramedic: No. She's weak but breathing on her own.
Jack: Joe, she's pregnant.
Joe: We'll take care of her. Let's get her transferred.
Maggie: Excuse me. That was Anna, right?
Jack: Yeah, that was Anna.
Maggie: What happened?
Jack: I found her on the floor of her office. I have no idea what happened. Excuse me. Sorry.
Maggie: Hi, I need to leave a message for Dr. Hayward. Yes, it's very important. His wife is in the hospital, and she's unconscious. Please tell him to get here fast.
Simone: I told you, my plans tonight were to find a job.
Frank: Yeah, well, plans change.
Simone: Mine can't. No, not ever.
Kendall: I told you, Chris gets his jollies harassing me.
Trey: Yeah, well, he seemed pretty serious to me.
Kendall: Fresh meat.
Kendall: You. All that identity theft B.S. I mean, what's the big deal?
Trey: I can be charged with multiple felonies, spend the rest of my life in jail.
Kendall: Well, you're obviously a great liar, so just keep it up.
Trey: I can’t. Not when even I don't know what the truth is.
Kendall: What do you mean?
Trey: Is my mother the evil Vanessa or the sweet Nessa or some personality that hasn't even stepped up yet? Not even to mention who my father is.
Kendall: Well, considering who my dad is, you're probably better off not knowing.
Trey: You know, if I were you, I would toss these.
Kendall: Oh, yeah, the hell you would. Your whole life is an obsession fest about your family.
Trey: When I want a shrink, I'll get one.
Kendall: You know what? Actually, you sound a lot like him.
Trey: Richard Fields?
Kendall: Yeah. You know what? I noticed that the last time I watched this flick.
Trey: I may be in the dark about a lot of the details in my life, but I do know that I'm not some 1960s B movie actor/rapist.
Kendall: Oh, yeah, your talents are definitely A-list.
Man: You must go immediately. Please get this message to your chief.
[Trey stops videotape]
Man: Please get this message to your chief.
Trey: Please leave a message at the beep.
Man: Please get this message to your chief.
[Answering machine beeps]
Trey: Please leave a message at the beep.
Greenlee: I want to stay in Pine Valley.
Greenlee: Better get that.
Leo: Hello? Whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down, Maggie. You did? When? Okay, okay, okay, I'll be there.
Greenlee: What happened now?
Leo: Anna collapsed. She's in the E.R., and Maggie can't find David.
Leo: Not when you need me, no.
Greenlee: Go. Leo, your sister-in-law is in the hospital, your cousin is flipping out, your niece or nephew might be in danger, and your big brother is going to be worrying. Just -- they need you. But more important to me, you need them.
Leo: I do love you more than anyone else.
Greenlee: Feel free to keep telling me that. Now go.
Leo: All right. I'll call you when I know anything.
Greenlee: I'll be at the office undoing my transfer to Paris. Right after I save you from yourself.
Greenlee: Didn't you get to the D.A.?
Kendall: Well, hello to you, too. Yes, I did, but they won't arrest Trey.
Greenlee: Well, didn't you tell Jackson that Trey stole your lighter and he burned down Erica’s house?
Kendall: Yeah, I told them everything, but the bottom line is my word's no good. They need hard evidence.
Greenlee: Because you're a convicted perjurer.
Kendall: Go ahead and insult me all you want, Greenlee. It's not going to do any good. The bottom line is you and I are the only ones who are on to Trey, and you have to keep helping me make sure he gets put away.
Greenlee: Only if Leo never finds out.
Kendall: He won't. Neither will Trey -- until it's too late.
Greenlee: Yeah. Until he gets us first.
Maggie: Well, they haven't brought in any machines for a while, so, I mean, that's a good sign, right?
Jack: I really hope so.
Jake: Hey, what's up?
Jack: Anna -- I went --
David: Where's my wife?
Jake: What the hell are you doing here?
David: Just answer me. Where is she?
Jake: You are not allowed in this hospital, Hayward. We have a restraining order against you.
David: Maggie, where's Anna?
Jake: David --
Jack: You go in there, and I will have you arrested for contempt of court.
David: I need to help my wife and child, all right?
Jack: Contempt of court means no bail. One step through that door, and you'll start your life sentence right now.
Anna: Joe, how's the baby?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Opal: You're kind of setting your man up to pass a test he doesn't even know he's taking.
Trey: Tell me who my father is.
David: I'm on my knees. Please save my child.
Anna: Oh, Joe.
