>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Greenlee: Tell them you sense Leoís energy. Tell them!

Bridget: Sometimes my enthusiasm can blur my visions.

Greenlee: Say you feel Leo alive.

Bridget: I'm sorry.

Greenlee: Oh, God.

Adam: I could wait forever. Wouldn't matter. Liza can never love me.

Trey: You found the diamonds!

Kendall: Yes, I found the diamonds! Yes, I found them! You think anybody tailed us?

Trey: Uh-uh, the rearview mirror was clear. Lock the door.

Kendall: Ok, ok.

Trey: It's show time. Come on.

Kendall: Yes, yes, yes. Oh, come to mama.

[Kendall gasps]

Kendall: Wow.

Trey: How much do you think they're worth?

Kendall: I don't know. Millions?

Trey: Yeah. Yeah, millions at least.

Kendall: Look at us. We're a bunch of stinking, bank vault-busting millionaires. This one -- this one alone is worth a villa on the Riviera.

Trey: Oh, and this one is a yacht complete with captain and crew.

Kendall: This one is Ericaís parking spot at the Country Club.

Trey: A lifetime supply of Golden Beluga.

Kendall: Yes. Hell, you know what? I will buy the whole damn Country Club and kick Erica out. Oh, Trey, this is so worth it. This is so worth it. I'm not even mad at you for making me wear that stupid wet suit to dive into the freaking cold water.

Kendall: Hey, rich boy. What's wrong?

David: Don't, Greenlee!

[Greenlee screams]

David: Donít.

Adam: Mmm. You make a mean martini.

Sheri: I've had practice.

Adam: Practice makes most things perfect.

Sheri: So they say.

Adam: Mia -- ahem -- it's Adam. Sorry I missed you. I'm -- Iím at the Valley Inn. I thought maybe we could -- you could join me for a drink. We could play catch-up. It's just a little after 9:00. Probably be here for another hour. Yeah.

Adam: You look amused.

Brooke: Oh, I was just thinking -- the more things change, they more they stay the same.

Trey: Nothing's wrong.

Kendall: Don't give me that. You totally whited out just now.

Trey: The last few days I've been kind of running on empty, that's all.

Kendall: Well, it's nothing a good night's sleep and a fortune in diamonds won't fix.

Trey: Just forget about the diamonds, all right?

Kendall: Forget them? No, I busted my butt for these babies.

Trey: Leave it alone, Kendall.

Kendall: What -- Trey, what is wrong with you?

Trey: I told you.

Kendall: No, this is not about sleep deprivation.

Trey: Would you please just stop?

Kendall: A minute ago you were counting the ways to spend this pile. Now you've made a complete hairpin turn and you want to get rid of these babies?

Trey: Look, I'm going to bed.

Kendall: Look, if you're all bummed out because we didn't get the rest of the diamonds, we can go back and get the rest.

Trey: I don't want to go back.

Kendall: Why? Because you're afraid of the height or the water?

Trey: I don't want to go back because half of my family died there. Leo's blood is on every single one of those diamonds, so please forgive me if I'm not going blind with joy.

David: Greenlee, just -- just give me your hand.

Greenlee: What are you doing here, David?

David: I came here for the same reason you did. I wanted to be close to Leo.

Greenlee: Go away. I want to be alone.

David: All right. Look, I promise you, I won't bother you, ok? Just -- please, just stand away from the ledge.

Greenlee: One more step and I'll jump!

David: All right, ok. All right, I won't step closer, I promise.

Greenlee: I wasn't expecting an audience.

David: Greenlee, do you really think this is what Leo would want?

Greenlee: If I died, Iíd want him to go with me.

David: Why?

Greenlee: Because it wouldn't be heaven without him.

David: Doesn't that seem a little bit selfish?

Greenlee: That's what I am -- selfish, bitchy. But Leo loved me anyway, maybe because I was different with him. And he made me feel safe.

David: I know. I know he did, and I know that you must feel like it's light-years away before you'll feel safe again, but listen --

Greenlee: If you tell me it'll all go away and life goes on, I swear I'll jump right now!

David: Greenlee -- Greenlee, please. What -- what do you want me to say? What?

Greenlee: The truth. You were there when your father put a gun to his head and blew his brains out. How long did it take you to get over that?

David: I could have gone with him. There was a gun right there with bullets in it. I thought about it for the longest 30 seconds of my life.

Greenlee: What stopped you?

David: Because I didn't want it to end that way. Yes, it would have served Vanessa right, but --

Greenlee: But you loved your father.

David: Yes, I loved my father, but Greenlee, the man was a coward, all right? He had a son who loved him, a son who needed him.

Greenlee: No one needs me.

David: That's not true. You are so wrong, Greenlee. I need you.

Kendall: Trey, what is with you?

Trey: I don't know what the hell's wrong.

Kendall: Because this treasure hunt was your idea. I mean, you came to me.

Trey: That was before.

Kendall: Before what?

Trey: Before we went back to the falls.

Kendall: You did fine when we went there.

Trey: I'm kidding myself.

Kendall: It took guts to do what you did.

Trey: It took guts to do what Leo did.

Kendall: Ok, I don't know how you spell "hero," but you risked your life to save Greenlee's. And this -- this is your reward.

Trey: This is Leoís death sentence. You know what they say about diamonds that are cursed?

Kendall: I don't believe that. It's just a stone.

Trey: It's carbon and time compressed in darkness -- Vanessaís darkness, Vanessaís evil. And that is exactly what those are.

Kendall: Evil, shmevil, they're flawless, zillion-carat nest eggs. We can live like euro trash for the rest of our lives.

Trey: No. No way. I'm handing those over to the cops.

Adam: You have no objections?

Brooke: Not if you don't.

Adam: Why would I?

Brooke: Oh, being seen with me might tarnish your reputation.

Adam: I'll take my chances.

Sheri: Excuse me, another?

Brooke: Oh. What are you doing?

Adam: Martini.

Brooke: Hmm. Sounds good.

Sheri: Martini, very dry, two olives?

Brooke: Make it three. I need the veggies.

Adam: What?

Brooke: What?

Adam: What?

Brooke: Did I say something?

Adam: No. You're thinking it.

Brooke: I was thinking you have that lean-and-hungry look.

Adam: Oh, don't be ridiculous.

Brooke: Mm-hmm. Thinking of trying to dust it up with the Mistress of Mixology there?

Adam: For your information, she came on to me.

Brooke: Uh-huh. Well, there's going to be a catfight if Mia shows up -- if she does.

Adam: Mia?

Brooke: You'd like that, wouldn't you -- two attractive women clawing for your affection?

Adam: How many of those have you had?

Brooke: Listen, I heard you calling Liza's sister on the phone to ask her out for a casual drink. A prelude to what, I wonder.

Adam: Mia is family. We got to know each other very well when she was living with us.

Brooke: Hmm. As well as you got to know Dixie when she was living with us?

Adam: She enjoys my company, damn it. Is that so hard to understand?

Brooke: No, it's not. Why shouldn't Mia enjoy your company? You're smart, you're charming, you're intense.

Adam: Why are you drinking alone?

Brooke: Whoa. Could you signal the next time you change the subject?

Adam: You're not one that usually pub-crawls.

Brooke: Yes, well, to you, this is a singles' bar. To me, it's a quiet place I can have a drink. Totally respectable.

Adam: Like you.

Brooke: Damn straight. What do you think; Iím here drinking alone, drowning my sorrows in something 90-proof?

Adam: Would you admit it if you were?

Brooke: I believe the conversation was about you and your affection for -- attractive, impressionable, young women.

Adam: Mia may be young, but she's hardly impressionable.

Brooke: Aha. So is that why you are here drinking alone?

Adam: I'm not alone. I'm with you. Actually.

Sheri: Here you go.

Brooke: Mmm. Thank you so much.

Sheri: Can I get you anything else?

Adam: No, thank you. I'm fine. Very funny.

Brooke: I think I'm a laugh riot. So, where's Liza?

Adam: Home.

Brooke: How's her health holding up?

Adam: Fine. She's in the -- in the pink.

Brooke: Hmm. No sign of the brain tumor?

Adam: Uh-uh. All well. You want a note from her doctor?

Brooke: Well, you must be very grateful to have her back.

Adam: Well, it's not as if she lost her memory and zigzagged around the country for five years. She's -- she had an illness, the surgery was successful, she's recovered.

Brooke: So why aren't you home drinking your own booze and celebrating how lucky you are?

Adam: Lucky? Ooh, ooh. You know, that's a trick word, tricky word, like "success." She recovered from the brain tumor. The health of our marriage is quite a different matter.

Brooke: Well, surely, you're grateful.

Adam: I want my wife back the way she was before.

Brooke: What changed?

Adam: Why should I tell you? You'll just take her side.

Brooke: Fine. You don't want to discuss it, it's --

Adam: I know that I'm not a -- Iím not that easy a man to live with, I know that. But, I mean, Iím domineering and opinionated sometimes.

Brooke: And deceitful and egotistical.

Adam: But if a woman can see past those faults and bring out the best in me, I can be --

Brooke: Incredibly kind and caring and loving.

Adam: Now I know you've had too much to drink.

Brooke: In Martini Veritas.

Adam: You still see some good in me, huh?

Brooke: Always.

Adam: Despite the way I mistreated you when we were together?

Brooke: Oh, Adam. I've learned a big life lesson. I've learned that there's some monster in all of us, and we have needs that are so powerful that they drive us to do almost anything to get what we want.

Adam: My God. There's hope for you, after all.

Brooke: Oh, yes, my secret is out. I've always wanted to be you when I grew up.

Adam: To hell with the common herd. To live with passion and --

Brooke: No, Adam. What I did was wrong.

Adam: Yeah, well, to hell with right and wrong.

Brooke: Yeah, well, that's a fine philosophy if you're living on some distant planet or on some deserted island

Adam: Pine Valley will never catch up with us.

Brooke: Well, I will never catch up with you because I have walked in your calfskin loafers and I've done something that reeks of Adam Chandler, and it was disastrous.

Adam: Maybe you need more practice.

Brooke: Your shoes don't fit me, Adam. And I will hazard a guess that they don't fit you anymore, either.

Kendall: Trey, you are un-freaking-believable.

Trey: Look, I'm sorry, ok?

Kendall: This -- this was your mission, Trey. You wanted to -- to get the jewels and a last laugh on Vanessa. Well, mission accomplished. We've got the mother lode right here. We are made in the shade for the rest of our lives. And you want to -- you want to turn it in to the cops?

Trey: Fencing those diamonds would be the same thing as tap-dancing on Leoís grave.

Kendall: Oh, Leo would be loving this.

Trey: I can't do it!

Kendall: He would want this for you. Well, I can. I busted my butt for these babies, and I will be damned if the cops take my stuff. Now, you know what? Stop this holier-than-thou routine or Iím gone.

Trey: What, so either I trash my dead brother's memory or you cut me loose?

Kendall: Hello. Hello, Mr. One-way ticket to San Francisco. How ready were you to ditch me?

Trey: But I didn't.

Kendall: No, you didn't. You stuck around and used me to get what you wanted. And then when you grew a conscience, never mind what I wanted, I'm just your freaking sister. I guess Leo means more to you dead than I ever will alive.

[knock on door]

Officer: It's the police. Open up.

Jack: This is Jack Montgomery, kids. I know you're in there. Now, open the door, or we'll open it for you.

Greenlee: You need me?

David: Yes, yes. You're my family.

Greenlee: You've got a real family -- a wife, a baby on the way.

David: I have an ex-wife and a baby I may never be allowed to be a father to.

Greenlee: I can't be anything to you.

David: Come on, Greenlee. Come on, you know me. You know how hard it is for me to ask for help.

Greenlee: Shut up.

David: Listen --

Greenlee: Shut up!

David: Listen to me, ok? Listen, listen -- do you think you're the only one that loved Leo? He was my brother.

Greenlee: He was my whole life. I didn't exist until I met him. My parents paid people to take care of me to pretend that they gave a damn. I pretended it didn't matter, that I didn't need anyone.

David: Until Leo came along, right?

Greenlee: Leo knew me. We had the same empty childhood, the same fears. But when we were together, we weren't afraid of anything. Together we were going to make up for every lonely hotel room, every forgotten birthday, and all those goodnight kisses that never came.

David: Greenlee, I didn't even know that I had a brother until three years ago. I mean, three years -- that's not nearly long enough.

Greenlee: You can't be feeling what Iím feeling.

David: What, what, that you feel like your life will never be the same again? Greenlee, come on. You and I, we both loved Leo more than anybody on this entire planet. That is something that we will always share.

Greenlee: Without Leo? I can't picture my life without him. What am I going to do? What the hell am I supposed to do with my life?

David: Can we try to figure that out together? Greenlee, come on.

[Greenlee cries]

David: It's all right, it's all right. It's ok. It's all right.

[Greenlee cries]

David: Greenlee -- Greenlee, you don't have to do this alone, all right? I'm here. I will always be here.

Greenlee: You don't get it.

David: Of course I get it. I know. I'm not Leo, right? I'm his brother. Is that it?

Greenlee: You and I can't help each other.

David: But we can try, right? Can't we try?

Greenlee: Sooner or later I'm going to have to go home, and I'll put the key into the door and walk into an empty apartment and Leo will be everywhere I look. His socks will be on the couch and his candy wrappers will be on the bedside table. His pillow will smell like him, but it won't be him. It'll never be him again, and I hate that! I hate it!

David: I know. I understand that. But, Greenlee, come on. What's the alternative, huh? I mean, falling in love with Leo, letting him into your life, into your heart -- what, it never should have happened? Is that it?

Greenlee: I'd give anything to feel nothing right now.

David: You don't mean that. You don't mean --

Greenlee: Don't tell me what I mean, damn it! You think I should be grateful for those five seconds of happiness that we got? It's a total rip-off!

David: You're right, it is! It's a total rip-off! Then fight, ok? You've got to fight back.

Greenlee: Fight for what? My husband's dead! I'll never love anyone the way I loved Leo, and if you say I will, I swear to God I'll kill you!

Jack: Well, Mr. Kenyon, Kendall, how nice to see both of you again.

Trey: Mr. Montgomery. Who are your two friends?

Jack: These are detectives Yablonsky and Rosarian. They'll be searching your premises this evening.

Kendall: You have no right to harass us. You already questioned Trey.

Jack: Your roommate is a prime suspect in an arson investigation and he's considered a flight risk. But it's all spelled out in this warrant.

Trey: This is all bogus.

Jack: Yeah, well, you're a lawyer. Take a look at it. You tell me what you think. In the meantime, Yablonsky, I want you to check Mr. Kenyon's room. Rosarian, you look around in here.

Trey: Well, what the hell do you think you're going to find?

Jack: I have no idea. But, you see, it's that very element of surprise that makes my job so interesting.

Trey: Yeah, well, you're wasting your time.

Jack: It's my time to waste, son.

Kendall: Shouldn't you be out kissing babies and making phony campaign promises?

Det. Yablonsky: Sir, you might want to check this out.

Jack: What do you got there? A receipt for Mr. Speedy's copy center for $12.50 for scanning documents out of a CD-ROM.

Trey: Yeah. You see, Iím a lawyer. I scan documents onto CDs all the time.

Jack: I'll bet you do. Why don't you continue to look around in here? Rosarian, I want you to find the Superintendent of the building and I want you to have him unlock the storage cage in the cellar.

Det. Rosarian: Got a hunch?

Jack: Oh, yeah. I've got a hunch.

Adam: My shoes were handmade in Rome. They damn well better fit.

Brooke: Think metaphor.

Adam: I'm the same man Iíve always been.

Brooke: Really? I'm not the same woman. 10 years ago, I would have never hidden the fact that Maria was alive.

Adam: 10 years ago, you hadn't lost Edmund. Or Tad. Or -- what's his name? -- That hermit that lived in the woods.

Brooke: Pier. And we're talking about two different things.

Adam: I know what you're talking about. You're saying that my bag of tricks is outdated, that my way of doing things doesn't work for me anymore.

Brooke: You know what? I am the last person to tell anyone how to run their life.

Adam: When has that ever stopped you? Come on, Brooke. Come on. Hey, hey, it's me. Give me your best shot.

Brooke: You asked for it. Adam, your problem is that you want what you can't have.

Adam: And what might that be?

Brooke: This little flirtation with the barmaid, your phone call to Mia. You -- you want somebody besides Colby to look at you the way Dixie looked at you, the way Liza looked at you before it all fell apart. You want to be adored. You want Liza to be the woman that she was on any one of the three -- count them, three -- wedding days, when she pledged her love and her life with you no matter what. But she can't be the perennial blushing bride, Adam. She knows you too well. And to know you is not always to love you.

Adam: You're mean when you drink.

Brooke: You're mean when you're sober. But you know what? This comes straight from my heart and from our history.

Adam: We had some moments.

Brooke: Many. And where has it all gone?

Adam: What?

Brooke: "What"? I don't know -- the dreams, the potential. It seems that no matter how much we want things to work out, somehow happiness seems right -- just right there beyond reach.

Adam: Speak for yourself.

Brooke: Oh, really? Are you going to sit there and tell me that you are happy?

Adam: Well, I -- I thought that I would be by this stage in my life. I thought I would have gotten it right.

Brooke: We're not supposed to get it right. We're supposed to muck it up. We're supposed to make mistakes until we learn what we need to know, or else we're destined to repeat, you know?

Adam: Oh, yeah. Out with the bad karma, in with the good. We bust our humps all through this lifetime so we can come back as some enlightened hoo-hah in the next.

Brooke: Possibly.

Adam: That's a load and you know it. This life is a one-shot deal. Everything we can dream about, ever dream about, is right here, it is right now, and the trick is to grab it if you can and to hold on to it if you can. And for God's sake, whatever you do, don't apologize.

Brooke: Well, speaking of grabbing, why don't you grab the check and call me a cab. I have a very early day tomorrow.

Adam: My driver's right outside. I'll take you home?

David: Greenlee, you may never have another love like Leo.

Greenlee: Then what's the point of anything?

David: You just have to ask yourself -- what would Leo want for you?

Greenlee: I canít.

David: Come on, Greenlee, you knew him better than anyone, ok? You know. You dreamed the same dreams.

Greenlee: Those dreams are dead, too.

David: Are they really?

Greenlee: David, do you think Leoís watching me now, waiting for me in heaven?

David: It's a comforting thought, huh?

Greenlee: There's no time in heaven, you know. Years, decades go by in a flash. Leo won't have to wait very long. One day I'll be an old lady and I'll go lie down for my afternoon nap, and when I wake up, Iíll be on the clouds in the moonlight. And I'll hear someone calling my name. And then Leo will be there, smiling that smile. He'll reach out and take my hand, and we'll be young again, young and together forever and ever and ever.

Jack: And you found that where?

Det. Rosarian: Taped inside an air vent. Popped it into my laptop.

Jack: And what popped up?

Det. Rosarian: The missing Proteus files.

Jack: The missing Proteus files -- imagine that. You see why my job is so much fun? That's the disk that Agent Stamp stashed at Erica Kaneís house before it was burned. You're under arrest. I want you to read Mr. Kenyon his rights.

Kendall: No, wait, wait. Wait a minute, please. I just want a second to talk to my brother.

Jack: Yeah, you can talk to him after you post bail for him, if he makes bail.

Kendall: Jack, please, I just need two minutes.

Jack: Make it count.

Kendall: Trey, Jack is not messing around. You have to cut some sort of a deal with him.

Trey: Oh, what deal? There's nothing to bargain with.

Kendall: Hello, Einstein -- the diamonds.

Trey: Are you serious?

Kendall: Well, you wanted to turn them in anyway. Tell Jackson that you've got the Proteus stash and there's a zillion more at the falls.

Trey: Well, what about your cut? All your plans?

Kendall: The only plans I ever really cared about were the ones with Ryan. Now, hurry up and go cut a deal before Jackson puts you in jail.

Trey: I've got a proposition for you.

Brooke: So, you want regular or decaf?

Adam: I know I said I'd come in for some coffee, but I would love some brandy.

Brooke: I will join you.

Adam: Is Jamie upstairs?

Brooke: No. He's spending some time with Tad.

Adam: Brooke, why didn't you tell me?

Brooke: What, about Jamie? Oh. That.

Adam: Why didn't you say something?

Brooke: Well, you didn't ask.

Adam: I asked why you were drinking alone.

Brooke: Well, I wasn't drinking alone because of my annulment.

Adam: Why bring the Pope in this? What's wrong with a civil divorce?

Brooke: Maria's mother wanted to be sure that in the eyes of God my marriage to Edmund never happened.

Adam: Oh, I see. Well, I'm no theologian, but on which of the six days did God create denial?

Brooke: It was important to Isabella.

Adam: Well, if God can put your marriage behind him, so can you.

Brooke: You know, you are incorrigible. What are you looking for?

Adam: Inner peace.

Brooke: Oh, dear. Fresh out.

Adam: How about that record we wore out on our honeymoon?

Brooke: Uh -- you know, vinyl's out and plastic is in.

[Music plays]

Adam: May I have this dance?

Brooke: Oh, come on, now, you're being silly.

Adam: Well, why not? There's nobody to laugh at us but us.

Brooke: Ok. One dance, but I -- then I have to get to bed.

Adam: Yes, ma'am.

Kendall: Open your hand.

[Det. Yablonsky whistles]

Jack: I take it these are not cubic zirconia.

Trey: Uh-uh. Those things are as real as it gets.

Kendall: And there's a lot more where they came from.

Trey: We'll even tell you the exact location of the other ones.

Kendall: So is Trey off the hook?

Jack: Well, let's just say these may have tipped the scales of justice in his favor. I'll take these as a sign of good faith from you.

Trey: I want total immunity, all charges dropped.

Jack: You're not in that strong a position, son, but I'll tell you what I will do. If I can find some time away from kissing babies and making false campaign promises, I'll see if I can broker a deal with Anna. In the meantime --

Trey: I know, I know -- don't leave town.

Jack: Exactly. Gentlemen tag this and get it in the evidence room. Let's go.

Trey: Hold on, Jack.

Kendall: What?

Trey: Come on, Kendall. Give it up.

Kendall: Here. Now get the hell out.

Jack: Pretty thing, isn't it?

Kendall: Well, easy come, easy go.

Trey: I owe you.

Kendall: Hmm, yes, you do. And don't worry, I will find a way to make you pay.

David: Greenlee, I thought I would -- Iíd like to run something by you.

Greenlee: What?

David: I think it would be appropriate to have some kind of a memorial service for Leo.

Greenlee: I guess. When?

David: Tomorrow?

Greenlee: Tomorrow. What if -- what if he comes back?

David: Well, then he'll be the first one to laugh his head off. But in case he doesn't come back, I think it's important to get his friends and his family together, you know? Just to say good-bye.

Greenlee: "Good-bye." It sounds so final.

David: I want to stand up for my brother. I want -- I want him to know how much he was loved and how much he'll be missed.

Greenlee: David.

David: I'm sorry.

Greenlee: It's ok. It's ok.

[Music plays]

Adam: Our song's not over yet.

Brooke: It's not our song anymore, so -- Adam, really, I -- I have an early day tomorrow, so --

Adam: Yes. Yeah. Actually, so do I.

Brooke: Ok.

[Song ends]

Brooke: Adam?

Brooke: Hurry, before we both come to our senses. Come on.

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

Maria: I just came by to thank you for last night.

Tad: Brooke? It's Tad.

Brooke: Hide, or Iím going to stomp you flat and shove you under the rug.

Maggie: I can't go to the service without you.

Bianca: I'm not ready to say good-bye.

Greenlee: Good-bye, my love.
