>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Adam: What I want is for you to see that, in spite of everything, we still have a chance.

Kendall: Looks like we're going to be neighbors again.

Leo: We had a deal, Vanessa -- I get the diamonds, you let Greenlee go.

[Vanessa gasps]

Greenlee: What do you know about Leo?

Woman: Your husband is alive.

Greenlee: Oh. I knew it. Leo's alive. I told you.

Trey: You lowlife --

Greenlee: Don't touch that!

David: How do you know anything about my brother?

Woman: I'm a clairvoyant. I came because I had a vision.

Aidan: There is no way, no way that you can move into this hotel.

Kendall: Oh, really? Well, who's going to stop me?

Aidan: Well, for one, you can't afford it.

Kendall: I can keep up with you.

Aidan: I'm going to bartend here just so I can pay my way.

Kendall: Well, you are really cool to be staying here at the Valley Inn.

Aidan: Anna lives here -- my aunt -- and she's pregnant, and I'm going to help her out.

Kendall: I don't believe it. I don't believe it. Your room is right across from mine.

Aidan: Really? Well, I can fix that. Hi. This is Aidan Devane. I'd like to change my room, please.

Kendall: Hmm. Soldier boy runs and hides.

Aidan: No, really, I don't care what size bed. Just see what you can do. Thanks.

Kendall: Oh, I get it. Maria -- Maureen -- booted you out of hero duty.

Aidan: Shut your trap.

Kendall: Oh, come on. You totally, totally admit it. You are so psyched to get rid of Ms. Forgetful.

Aidan: What?

Kendall: Because now you can go after what you really want -- me.

Stuart: Oh, oh -- wow. How beautiful!

Adam: Yeah, Stuart. Good night.

Liza: Thank you, Winifred. If you could send my dinner up to my room, I'd appreciate it.

Stuart: You're going to try to make it up with Liza tonight?

Adam: I said good night.

Stuart: I'm leaving, I'm leaving. Ok, I don't want to mess things up.

Liza: Hello, Stuart.

Stuart: Hi. Enjoy your evening, Liza.

Liza: Quite a setup.

Adam: Uh, yes. Everything seems just right.

Liza: Who are you expecting?

Adam: You.

Greenlee: Where's Leo?

Anna: Oh, sorry. I didn't realize that you had company. I'll go.

Greenlee: No, no, no! Stay, stay. You've got to get on this news about Leo.

Anna: What?

David: She says she's a psychic.

Woman: Clairvoyant. The name is Bridget St. Claire.

Trey: What exactly is your vision?

Bridget: Visions are seldom exact.

Greenlee: Let her work, can we? Here's a chair. Here's a chair.

Bridget: It's dark, cold.

Trey: Yeah, that's pretty vague.

Greenlee: It's a start.

Bridget: Leo is reaching out. He wants someone desperately.

Greenlee: Of course, of course. He needs me.

Bridget: But something is holding him back.

Greenlee: We've got to go -- we've got to go to him. Take me to my husband right now.

Adam: Tell me what tempts you.

Liza: Is Colby out with JAR. as we planned?

Adam: Uh, yes, yes.

Liza: Good, then that means I have the night off from playing nice with you.

Adam: I promise you the fois gras is 100% arsenic-free.

Liza: You know, I don't eat tortured caged bird.

Adam: We need to celebrate, Liza.

Liza: Celebrate? Celebrate what? That it's been, what, a month since we tried to kill each other?

Adam: No. Our unique ability to work together to produce instant, perfect results.

Liza: What are you talking about?

Adam: JAR.'s school advisor called. JAR. is back in class, back applying his excellent mind.

Liza: Well, good for JAR.

Adam: Yeah. And I realize that you have put aside a lot to help with JAR., and I am grateful. Truly.

Liza: And this is your way of showing your gratitude?

Adam: Yes.

Liza: And?

Adam: And hoping that this will inspire you to let me thank you even further.

Liza: How?

Adam: That yacht trip we've been talking about for such a long time. The Mediterranean is beautiful this time of year.

Liza: Champagne and flattery and a boat in deep water. That sounds dangerous.

Adam: I'd call it sumptuous and overdue.

Liza: What do you want?

Adam: I want to get you back again.

Aidan: Don't flatter yourself, Kendall. It'll take 10 of these beers to make you more attractive to me.

Kendall: Wow. Maria dumping you must really hurt. Makes you too scared to even look my way.

Aidan: Maria's been through a hard time, ok, and she needs a little bit of space to sort out her feelings, and I think that's understandable.

Aidan: Lonely as hell is being the town pariah, hated by your mum and dumped by the so-called love of your life.

Kendall: Ok, just shut up. I'm as good as anybody, and --

Aidan: Who? Who?

Kendall: You -- you said that you're here to help out your aunt, right?

Aidan: Yeah, right.

Kendall: Well, I'm going to help out my aunt, too.

Aidan: And -- and who is that, then?

Kendall: Maria.

Aidan: Excuse me?

Kendall: Yeah, I was married to Edmundís nephew Anton.

Aidan: Oh, wow. Must've been a real love match.

Kendall: Enough to make me and Maria family, enough to give me all I need to know that Maria is going to love Edmund all over again.

Aidan: What do you care what Maureen remembers? Huh? You're not in contest with Maria. In fact, you're not even in the same league.

Kendall: Hmm. apparently, neither are you.

Aidan: I was wrong, Kendall. 20 of these beers wouldn't even make you bearable. Now, Iím going to go and check to see if my new room is available.

Palmer: Ahem. Well, excuse me, miss. Are you saving this seat for someone?

Kendall: Oh, Palmer, no. Please, sit down. I'm dying for some human company.

Palmer: Oh? That boy's upsetting to you.

Kendall: No, no. Aidan's just a messy, old, mean blowhard.

Palmer: And you're sweet on him.

Greenlee: Please, Bridget, take me to Leo.

Bridget: Oh, I will the moment I can. I -- oh, I can't quite get a fix on him yet.

Greenlee: Don't give up. Please don't give up.

Bridget: Darkness.

Trey: You already said that.

Bridget: It's a strong image.

Trey: Yeah, for all of us. The sun just went down. Why don't you tell us what Leo is wearing?

Greenlee: What is wrong with you, Trey? Don't you want to find Leo?

David: Greenlee, we all want Leo to be alive.

Greenlee: Maybe we should go for a drive along the river.

Bridget: Open hearts are more important right now than location.

Trey: I'm leaving, ok?

Bridget: Oh.

Greenlee: Bridget, I'm so grateful that you came.

Bridget: Oh, I'm sorry. The process can be so frustrating.

Greenlee: Well, is there anything I can do to make it easier?

Trey: You don't buy Bridgetís act, do you?

Anna: Of course not.

Trey: I know a con when I see one.

Anna: I'm sure you do.

Trey: Just check Bridget out, ok?

Anna: I'm sorry; I don't take orders from anyone.

Trey: Well, that's not a great policy, Anna, because you never do know who's going to be useful.

Anna: Is that Bridgetís? Did you lift this?

Trey: You can run the name Bridget St. Claire.

Anna: I should arrest you for possession of stolen property.

Trey: Oh, come on, Anna. Have a heart.

Anna: Oh, I do, Trey. I'm very sorry for your loss. I'm so sorry for all of us, really.

Trey: Greenlee and David are out of their minds with grief --

Anna: I know.

Trey: And that fraud is making everything worse.

Anna: I know that, too, but Greenlee's not going to listen to us. And saying you're a clairvoyant isn't exactly a crime in itself.

Trey: Ok, so -- so you can't arrest her for -- but what you can do is you can run the I.D. as something a Good Samaritan turned in, you know, to find out whose wallet it is.

Anna: Yeah, I can do that. You've got this all planned out, don't you?

Trey: I've got to do something, and this wallet's all Iíve got.

Anna: That isn't true. You helped save Greenleeís life, didn't you?

Trey: I let Leo die. I let my mother kill him. So, please, give me the chance to spare them more pain.

Liza: What do you mean you want to get me back?

Adam: I mean I want to love you again more than anything else in the world.

Liza: What's your angle?

Adam: I don't have one.

Liza: You -- you always have a selfish motive. It's who you are.

Adam: All right. I miss you, and I don't like the life we're living. You know that.

Liza: Yes, I do know that because we stopped communicating and now we just perform.

Adam: Well, I've noticed something different in your performance lately.

Liza: Well, then, I will watch how I say, "pass the corn." Good night.

Adam: You've shown me warmth, Liza, every time you see me with Colby.

Liza: You know what? Because I care about preserving the peace, I will tell you that when I see you lately with your son or our daughter that I have felt moments of hope.

Adam: Yes, we have to seize that.

Liza: No, we don't. I have to kill it.

Adam: No, Liza. Why?

Liza: For Colby.

Adam: We can't keep up this charade forever.

Liza: Why not?

Adam: Because she's too smart. Already, she's asking why -- how come mommy and daddy talk nice and look mad.

Liza: Well, then we have to watch the way we express ourselves.

Adam: Oh, really? You think that's the solution to this?

Liza: Look, I will tell you that this house divided is demeaning and it's impossible to maintain.

Adam: My point exactly.

Liza: But we have to try to keep it up.

Adam: No, we have to try to re-ignite our passion and our love.

Liza: What, you think a roll in the hay is going to fix our problems?

Adam: I'm not asking for sex, Liza.

Liza: No?

Adam: I've given a lot, too.

Liza: Like what?

Adam: Like trying to keep you out of jail.

Liza: Oh, I see. But, see, the flip side of that is that you get to keep your company afloat.

Adam: Yes, because you embezzled from me.

Liza: Right, and then you also made me think that I was dying, and I made you think that your son was killed in an automobile -- do you understand? There is too much hate in this marriage to survive.

Adam: No, no. No, it's not too much. It is not too much. I know it isnít. I know we can get past this. I know we can.

Liza: Why?

Adam: We -- because when the doctors told me that you were really going to die, I said, "God, please take me with her because I love her. I cannot live without her."

Liza: That was in an extreme moment.

Adam: No, it was a crystal-clear moment. You are my wife and my -- my soul mate and the mother of my child, and I love you more than my life.

Liza: Well, you have a terrible way of showing it.

Adam: Well, I -- Iím not expecting instant marital bliss. I'm willing to work.

Liza: We fight, Adam.

Adam: Yes, we do. We fight, but we always fight back harder because our love is stronger than our hate.

Liza: This time I am not so sure.

Adam: Well, I am. Liza, I can prove it to you. Just let me be your husband again.

Kendall: Palmer, you -- you could not be more wrong. Aidan and I -- we hate each other. I mean, we despise each other.

Palmer: Passion is passion.

Kendall: What does that mean?

Palmer: It means I thought I hated Daisy.

Kendall: Who?

Palmer: A spitfire. Ugh. Daisy, Daisy -- well, Daisy is my beautiful daughter's mother.

Kendall: Well, how can you go from hate to a baby?

Palmer: You'll see.

Kendall: With Aidan? No, not in this lifetime.

Palmer: Well, there's no point in arguing. No, I -- I know what I -- what is this luggage?

Kendall: Oh, well, I'm moving in here.

Palmer: You are? Well, you can't do that. I don't pay you enough.

Kendall: Oh, I'll -- I'll manage for a while.

Palmer: What happened to that newfound brother of yours that you moved in with?

Kendall: Yeah --

Palmer: I thought a little family might do you some good.

Kendall: Well, I have had no luck in that category.

Palmer: Well, you have had a bad time of it, but you really don't do much to help yourself.

Kendall: Oh, Palmer, Trey lied to me again. And then I -- and then I caught him trying to run out on me.

Palmer: Well, it sounds like someone that you might try to understand.

Kendall: Oh, believe me -- believe me, even a forgiving soul like you would not put Trey in your asset column.

Palmer: My goodness. You really are bad at business, but you are even worse at family. Besides, you don't have an inkling of what Iíd do in your shoes.

Kendall: Well, maybe not, but I know I cannot go back to the Pine Cone.

Palmer: Oh, absolutely not, not with that despicable owner still there.

Kendall: Yeah, so, the Valley Inn it is.

Palmer: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: Besides, I have a few credit cards that I haven't maxed out yet.

Palmer: Heavens, don't you know that consumer debt can ruin you?

Kendall: What are you doing?

Palmer: I'm writing a check.

Kendall: No, Palmer, I can't take your help.

Palmer: Oh, of course you can. Anyway, having you in residence will make taking care of peter so much more convenient.

Kendall: I -- I can't accept this kind of money for babysitting.

Palmer: Well, you have before and you will again.

Kendall: Well, maybe I want to turn over a new leaf.

Palmer: Well, that's a wonderful idea. Why don't you just let me help you?

Kendall: Palmer, people don't practice random acts of kindness on me.

Palmer: Hey, this isn't random. No, that is a targeted investment in someone I consider an undervalued asset.

Kendall: Oh. You're amazing.

Palmer: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: Thank you, Palmer.

Palmer: And don't let your pride sabotage you, hmm? Uh --

Aidan: Oh, I see. So that's how you pay your rent -- bartering with the only thing you have to offer.

Trey: Hey, hey, hey, David -- you want to go pull that parasite out of there?

David: So you don't think she's seeing visions of Leo?

Trey: No, I think she's seeing visions of dollar signs.

Anna: Ok, Trey, you were right. Bridget's name on her license is an alias. It's one of several. She's been arrested for fraud five times.

David: Then she's definitely lying right now?

Anna: Well, yes, of course she is.

David: I got to tell Greenlee before this goes any further.

Anna: I can do that if you want.

David: No, no. She'll only believe me right now.

Trey: David, listen -- you still got some family left. There's Anna and me.

Anna: Why don't you take care of Greenlee and we'll handle Bridget?

David: Thank you.

Greenlee: This will help you zero in on Leo.

Bridget: Oh, yes. Jewels hold intense emotions.

David: I'll take that. My brother wouldn't want you touching anything of his wifeís.

Greenlee: David, don't. She needs that.

David: No, what she needs is a pair of handcuffs. She's here to torture you, Greenlee, and swindle you.

Bridget: I haven't asked for a dime.

Trey: Yet.

Greenlee: No. No. No, no, no, but Bridget has proof Leoís alive. She senses him.

Trey: What sense do you get from over here?

Bridget: Hostility.

Greenlee: Stop it!

Trey: Are you picking anything up from Pine Valley's Chief of Police? Hmm?

Bridget: Oh.

Greenlee: Don't listen to them. Just help me find my husband.

Bridget: Um --

Greenlee: Look, look, if this is about money, I have it.

Anna: I will arrest you if you take any money for this.

Trey: Let me guess -- your vision's getting fuzzy.

Greenlee: Come on, tell them. Tell them you sensed Leoís energy. Tell them.

Bridget: Sometimes my enthusiasm can blur my visions.

Greenlee: Just say -- just say you're not lying. Say you felt something. Say you feel Leo alive.

Bridget: I'm sorry.

Greenlee: Oh, God.

David: Greenlee -- I'll show you out.

Greenlee: Oh, God. Leo, you promised you wouldn't leave me.

David: Can you read this?

Bridget: I'll stay away from you.

David: Damn right you will! And you'll stay away from whatever is left of my family!

((Leo's voice: I'm going to miss you. You and David were the only two at our wedding, and we just -- want -- we both want you with us.

Anna: Donít.

Leo: Anna, don't look at David like he's some kind of an outsider. You got to know the real David just like Greenlee got to know the real me. ))

Greenlee: Why can't I get this?

Trey: Let me -- let me help you.

Greenlee: You know, even if Bridget is a fake, it doesn't mean that Leoís really gone.

Trey: Greenlee, I was at the waterfall that night. The memory --

Greenlee: But you don't love Leo, so you don't remember it right.

Trey: I've been pushed away my entire life by everybody. But when Leo found out about Vanessa, that she was my mother -- well, he offered me his hand and he welcomed me as his brother, so Iíll always love him for that.

Greenlee: But it's too stupid to die because of Vanessa.

Trey: Well, if there is a good reason to die, Leo had it.

Greenlee: How can you say that?

Trey: He died because he loved you. He gave his life to save yours.

Greenlee: He went over a waterfall because of his mother's hidden drug fortune.

Trey: Vanessa's stockpile was -- was buried. It was totally worthless.

Greenlee: A decoy.

Trey: What?

Greenlee: Vanessa had diamonds hidden behind the falls. She had diamonds in a little bag like this.

Greenlee: Leo was dropping Vanessaís diamonds into the water, one by one, telling her to let me go. But at the second I fell onto that ledge, he tossed the whole bag.

Trey: Yeah, that's what he'd do. You know, hiding the diamonds -- that's definitely Vanessaís MO.

Greenlee: I told him, I told him. I told him that her fortune wasn't in those worthless stocks. I mean, you can't just run a drug empire and then lose everything when the market crashed.

Trey: Of course not.

Greenlee: But Leo didn't care about money.

Trey: No, he didnít. Just you.

Greenlee: And we're finally free to go to Paris. I rented us the most adorable flat.

Trey: I'm -- Iím so sorry.

Greenlee: Don't say that.

Trey: You two were --

Greenlee: Don't talk about us in the past tense. Leo's the love of my life. I'd like to be alone now, please.

Trey: Are you sure?

Greenlee: Please go.

Trey: Well, I promise you something, Greenlee. Vanessa's not going to win.

Anna: What Iím saying is that you can't just keep everything bottled up inside you. You know, you're going to have to let it out at some point.

David: How is she?

Trey: She's -- she's asked to be alone. So if you don't need me, I'm going to go home.

David: Look, thanks for helping out with Greenlee. That clairvoyant really had her going.

Trey: I'm -- I'm just glad there was something I could do.

David: Well, you've done a lot. So go ahead, it's -- yeah, go get some rest. I'll be in touch with you, ok, just to see how you're doing.

Trey: Ok, thanks.

David: Sure.

Trey: Good night, Anna.

Anna: Good night.

Anna: Good night. David, I understand that you prefer to be concerned with other people. But delaying your grief like this, it's -- it can be worse.

David: Anna, I'm so crazed with grief right now; I almost bought into that psychic's spiel. The truth is, I would have given her everything I have just to have five more minutes of hope.

Adam: Let me love you, Liza.

Liza: You know, as much as I try and as hard as it is, when I feel so lonely I can't find my way back to you.

Adam: Why not?

Liza: Because the chemistry of a marriage is -- it's so complex. And ours is missing a key ingredient -- trust. I don't trust you at all.

Adam: I didn't do anything any worse than you did.

Liza: Can you trust me again?

Adam: Yes.

Liza: Then you're a better person than me.

Adam: Oh, that's absurd.

Liza: Maybe it is. But this is over.

Adam: No, no. Try, damn it.

Liza: I'm not going to risk the carnage of another one of our battles.

Adam: You're being a coward.

Liza: No, I'm being very brave.

Adam: By what? By giving up?

Liza: I'm -- Iím begging you -- on the life of our daughter, who we love and adore, don't start another war because of ignorance or selfish pride. Be strong like Iím trying to be.

Adam: I can do anything for Colby.

Liza: I'm glad. Then we'll keep our separate quarters?

Adam: You're making the biggest mistake of all our lives.

Liza: Well, I appreciate your respecting my decision. Adam, I'm -- Iím sorry. I really am sorry.

Kendall: Are you accusing me of selling myself?

Aidan: Let's just say Iím concerned about the traffic outside my room.

Kendall: Oh, so you ended up not moving after all?

Aidan: Well, the Valley Inn is full, so I guess I'm stuck with you, I guess.

Kendall: Oh. Don't worry, Aidan. Your lonely sleep will be peaceful. I would never sell myself for a hotel room.

Aidan: Why, do you go for a higher price, do you?

Kendall: Will you stop insulting me, ok? I have been desperate and I have been low, but in the darkest hour of my darkest day, I have never, ever even thought about prostituting myself.

Trey: What did you say to my sister?

Aidan: If you're smart, you won't mess with me.

Trey: You treat my sister with respect, and we won't have a problem.

Aidan: Respect? I'll treat this lady with as much respect as she deserves.

Kendall: Trey, stop! Stop, stop it, ok? Look, everything must be hitting you right now. Just -- come on; let's just get out of here. You're crazy sad. Let's go.

Trey: Who the hell is this guy, anyway, huh? Mate?

Kendall: This is no one worth getting banged up over again.

Trey: What are you doing with him? He looks like some kind of pathetic barfly.

Kendall: Aidan is Ericaís construction foreman. He's a personal hire on her part.

Trey: So this is the guy -- the guy Ryan caught you with? The reason that he left?

Kendall: You were the one who gave me the stupid bug.

Trey: I didn't make you use it.

Kendall: I wasn't twisted enough to think of it on my own.

Trey: But you were desperate enough to do anything.

Kendall: No, that was your fault. Thanks to you, my corrupt lawyer/depraved brother.

Aidan: Oh, my God, I have seen a lot, but I have never seen a family this sick.

Trey and Kendall: Shut up!

Trey: What are you still doing here?

Aidan: You're warped, but this guy -- he's worse. He's toxic, and he's going to spoil any chance, any pipe dream that you've got of being normal.

Liza: Mother, can I come in?

Marian: Liza. Oh, you're supposed to be having dinner with Adam.

Liza: Oh, I see. So it's a conspiracy.

Marian: Oh, sweetheart, let me fix your blouse.

Liza: No, mother, stop it. Really, are you in on all these plans?

Marian: Darling, I wasn't in on anything. Stuart told me that Adam was planning a very private, special dinner for you, and I was just very hopeful, that's all.

Liza: Well, don't hope, ok? Adam and I are not reconciling.

Marian: Oh, all right. What went wrong?

Liza: Our whole marriage. And you know that.

Marian: Oh, darling, you can't be that totally bleak. Try to be a little hopeful and practical, Liza.

Liza: You know, honestly, I -- I don't know why I came here. I might as well just leave.

Marian: Sweetheart, whatever you want from Adam, I know it can be arranged.

Liza: Mother, I need for you to face the fact that Adam and I destroyed our marriage.

Marian: Well, darling, there's progress right there, isn't it? You're taking personal responsibility.

Liza: What's wrong with you? Be a mother to me. Comfort me.

Marian: I am being a mother. And I am trying to help you, Liza.

Liza: How?

Marian: By forcing you to answer a very important question. Do you still love Adam?

[Door opens]

Stuart: Adam, I just saw Liza going down to the gatehouse. She looked sad. What happened?

Adam: You don't need a blow-by-blow, Stuart. Goodnight.

Stuart: Did you lose your temper?

Adam: I was very loving, actually. But that meant nothing to Liza.

Stuart: Sometimes you go so fast, Adam. It's hard for people to keep up.

Adam: Liza can if she wants to.

Stuart: Well, maybe she was just tired. If you'd just be a little more patient --

Adam: I could wait forever, Stuart. It wouldn't matter. Liza can never love me again.

Anna: You should be feeling insane with grief right now. That's what you should be feeling.

David: I can't give in to it, Anna, not when Greenleeís about to accept Leoís death. I canít.

David: Hey. Come on. Let's get you back into bed, ok?

Greenlee: Leo really loved this jacket.

David: You bought it for him, huh?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm. And since it's ruined, I should just replace it. I mean, I keep trying to think of a shop in Paris where I could order a new one. And that way when we get there we can just pick it up. It doesn't make any sense, does it?

David: I wish it did. Would you like me to give you some -- something to help you sleep?

Greenlee: No.

David: Something mild might help make the pain bearable.

Greenlee: Pain's my only company now.

David: All right, look, I'm going to get you some food, ok? You could use that right now.

[Phone rings] Anna: Anna Devane.

Officer: I'm calling from forensics, Chief. I've got the test results from your carpet in your office.

Anna: What? I'm sorry.

Officer: Where Hayward spilled his drug.

Anna: Oh, yeah, of course.

Officer: The labs all came back inconclusive. They don't have a read.

Anna: I see.

Officer: You want me to send the sample on to the feds or just close the case? Actually.

Liza: Yes, mother, I suppose there are some parts to Adam that I love.

Marian: Well, marvelous, darling. Try to grab on to that and pull your marriage back together again.

Liza: Well, you know, I wish I could.

Marian: Well, you've done it before.

Liza: That was before I had Colby. And as Iíve told you a million times, motherhood changes things.

Marian: Darling, a divorce is going to be devastating for Colby.

Liza: I haven't asked Adam for a divorce, mother.

Marian: You mean, you're going to stay in a loveless marriage?

Liza: I think --

Marian: Listen to me. Mia and Stuart and I only tried to divide your home temporarily to impose a peace.

Liza: Well, it worked.

Marian: No, that was just a beginning. No daughter of mine is going to stay in a marriage of convenience.

Liza: It's a marriage of desperation. We do what we do for Colby.

Marian: Without intimacy?

Liza: Without danger of explosives.

Marian: Liza, you're a young woman. How long do you think you're going to be able to handle that?

Liza: God willing, the rest of my life.

Stuart: Adam, you've told Liza a lot of times that you're going to try to be a better husband.

Adam: Wouldn't it be helpful if she believed me?

Stuart: Well, you haven't really given her a lot of reason to do that.

Adam: She's not willing to try.

Stuart: Well, Adam maybe you should -- well, just try to be the best husband you can be, and maybe she'll come back on her own.

Adam: I begged her, Stuart. I begged her. I shouldn't have to beg. I -- Iím willing to forgive her. She should be willing to --

Stuart: Worship you? Like -- like Dixie and Gloria?

Adam: That's ancient history.

Stuart: And Mia?

Adam: Just because you let Marian push you around --

Stuart: Mia had that look, Adam.

Adam: What look?

Stuart: That -- that wide-eyed awe, "Iím with Adam Chandler and he can hang the moon" look.

Adam: There's nothing wrong with a little respect.

Stuart: Unless you hurt your wife with it.

Adam: Liza doesn't get hurt, she gets even.

Stuart: Oh, yeah? Well, showing off with Mia hurt Liza's feelings.

Adam: Liza never noticed.

Stuart: Even when you gave her sister that beautiful, fancy dress and -- and one of Lizaís necklaces?

Adam: There's nothing going on between me and Mia.

Stuart: I know. You're just showing off because you're afraid that Liza can hang a few moons of her own.

Adam: That's nonsense.

Stuart: No, it's not nonsense. She's your equal, Adam, in every way.

Adam: What are you saying? That she doesn't need me?

Stuart: Yes, exactly. She's -- this is the one marriage that should work for you because it's not all lopsided. It's perfectly balanced like a -- like a great work of art.

Kendall: No, Trey. Listen, I can't, ok? I'm sorry about what you're going through, I really am. But Aidan is right. I'm just worse off having you around. And believe me, brother, you're not worth it.

Trey: Well, maybe a couple million in diamonds might change your mind.
