>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Kendall: I need you to leave.
Aidan: But we just made love.
Kendall: I know that, but Iím not ready for you to spend the night.
Maria: I'm going to be really careful not to mess this up.
Edmund: Then Iíll take you on the whole romantic adventure.
Anna: David, I don't know how to let you go. I can't fight this anymore. I do need you. I need you so much.
Maid: Are you looking for Ms. Hart?
Aidan: Yeah, is she -- is she in?
Maid: No, she's gone to work, but you can leave a note if you'd like.
Aidan: Well, actually, I've got something a little bit larger than a note.
Manager: Hey, pretty lady. You here to pick up another shift?
Kendall: No, actually, I was looking for your new bartender.
Manager: Devane? He hasn't clocked in yet, and if he doesn't show in the next 10 minutes, he is history, especially after what he pulled last night.
Kendall: Oh, no, that wasn't his fault. Some lady was hitting on him, and she gave him her room key.
Manager: So? Listen, he should count himself lucky. I'm not saying he needs to sleep with every rich woman that comes in here, but there are ways of handling that stuff without walking out. I noticed guys hitting on you last night, and you didn't throw a fit.
Kendall: Yeah, well, I know how to play the game. Aidan doesnít.
Manager: Yeah, well, he should learn fast if he wants to keep this job. Stick around. I may need you to fill in for your friend again.
Kendall: Oh, do you mind if I leave him a note?
Manager: That's what they make cocktail napkins for.
Edmund: I didn't expect to see you. Something wrong?
Maria: Well, I don't know. You tell me. You said that you go riding when you're angry and you need to blow off steam, so did I do something?
Edmund: Oh, no, no. Actually, I feel like celebrating. It's, you know -- just went for a ride, take in the fall air, smell the roses, that kind of thing.
Maria: Okay. You sure? Because I wasn't sure after last night and --
Edmund: Last night was a breakthrough for us.
Maria: Yeah, but we didn't --
Edmund: We didn't have to.
Maria: Okay. Because that's actually why I'm here, because I just wanted to come by and tell you how much I appreciate you taking things at my pace and letting me tell you what I need and you listening.
Edmund: That's the deal. You want something, you ask.
Maria: I'm asking.
Anna: Oh, God. Hi. Is it morning?
David: More like afternoon.
Anna: You're kidding. What? Did I sleep the day away?
David: Well, I guess you needed it.
Anna: Where are you going?
David: I was hoping to be out of here before you woke up. When I saw you there looking so beautiful, and I just couldn't help myself, so --
Anna: Oh, no, you were watching me sleep. What have we come to?
David: I'm sorry. Anna, I don't want to make this any harder for you. Take care.
Anna: David, wait.
Aidan: So, what do we have here, then?
Kendall: Give it to me. It's just trash. Come on, would you give it to me?
Aidan: Ah, ah -- I thought you said it was just trash.
Kendall: It is. Can I have it, please?
Aidan: What is this, then? This is a telephone number.
Ah. So who gave you this? Not one of those suits out there?
Kendall: No, no. No, nobody gave it to me.
Aidan: Don't tell me -- the manager here gave it to you.
Kendall: Ew, no. I'm telling you, no one gave it to me. Can I have it, please?
Aidan: So what is this, then? Is it -- is this your work number? Who were you going to give this to, huh? Hmm?
Kendall: You, you moron, not that I was expecting you to call, because I wasnít. I'm not one of those girls who sleeps with somebody and then freaks out if he doesn't call her the next day. That is -- that is not me.
Aidan: Well, that's good to know.
Kendall: In fact, I've never been the type to sit by the phone. I hate that type. So, really, I couldn't care less if you called me or not.
Aidan: Oh, really? I was kind of hoping that you would care.
Kendall: Well, sure, I care. I didn't say I didn't care.
Aidan: Yes, you did.
Kendall: I just meant that if I gave you my number and you don't feel like calling me back, it's no big deal.
Aidan: And what if I do feel like calling?
Kendall: Well, that's -- that's okay, too.
Aidan: And what if I feel like doing more than that -- say, asking you out on a date tonight?
Edmund: Do we pick up where we left off?
Maria: Oh, am I embarrassing you?
Edmund: Not at all.
Maria: I think I'm embarrassing myself.
Maria: Because I just -- I only came over here just to try to get you out of my system for the day so I can get on with my day, and it's --
Edmund: I don't want to get you out of my system.
Maria: Yeah, it's not working.
Edmund: No, it's not.
Maria: It's not.
Maddie: They're kissing.
Sam: I know.
Maddie: Does this mean you're going to live with us now, Mommy?
Edmund: Mommy is still -- it's going to take a little while, because Mommy and Daddy are still getting to know each other.
Sam: How come you can't get to know each other in the same house?
Maddie: But you were kissing. That means you already know each other pretty good, right?
Edmund: Yeah --
Maria: Yeah. Um, well, see, that's all part of trying to get my memories back, and that's getting to know your daddy and getting to know you guys.
Sam: Well, when you do, will you come home?
Edmund: Sammy, Mommy's trying real hard, okay? Hey, don't you have a birthday party to go to this afternoon?
Maddie: No, I do.
Maddie: It's at Molly's house.
Sam: Brian invited me over. They've got a new basketball hoop. Can I go?
Edmund: Oh, really? Oh, yeah, sure, okay.
Sam: I need a ride.
Maddie: I want Mommy to take me.
Edmund: No pressure.
Maria: Yeah. How about if we both take both of you?
Sam and Maddie: Yeah.
Edmund: You're sure?
Maria: Yeah. I want to get to know their little friends, anyway.
Edmund: Okay. Let's go.
Maria: Okay. Let's go. Ah -- subtle and sneaky.
Maddie: Whoo. Whoo!
Edmund: That's your daughter.
David: I already know what you're going to say.
Anna: Do you?
David: Yes. Yes. Last night never should have happened. It was a moment of weakness, right?
Anna: Oh, David.
David: No, it's all right. It's okay. I understand. You know, you were tired, and you had a relapse.
Anna: You make it sound like a disease.
David: Anna, I already know that I'm bad for you, okay? You don't have to keep telling me that. I came here -- you brought me up here because you wanted to give me a Band-Aid and then things just spiraled into a place that neither one of us was prepared for.
Anna: Could you just let me speak?
David: Of course. I'm sorry.
Anna: Stop saying you're sorry. I'm not. Nothing happened last night that I didn't want to happen. Nothing.
David: Are you sure?
Anna: Oh, yeah. I always say what I mean. You're going to stay for breakfast?
David: More like lunch.
Anna: Whatever. Are you staying?
David: You try and make me leave.
Anna: I did. I gave up.
David: You said last night that you didn't want to fight anymore.
Anna: I donít. I canít.
David: Well, I don't want to hurt you again.
Anna: Well, you better bloody not, I'm telling you. That's it.
David: I just want to take care of you. You and our child, that's it, if you let me.
Anna: All right, order me up a corned beef sandwich with mustard and pickles, and then we'll talk about it.
David: For breakfast?
Anna: Yeah, well, lunch, whatever, I don't know. Food.
David: All right, I'm going to call for room service, but then I want you to call the station and I want you to take a day off, okay?
Anna: I don't need to. I quit.
Anna: Yes. I handed in my resignation last night. I am no longer chief of police of Pine Valley. Done.
David: Well, then you call Jackson. Call the commissioner. Call whoever you have to, but you take it back -- now.
Kendall: You don't have to feel obligated to ask me on a date or anything.
Aidan: I don't feel obligated.
Kendall: Because I'm not asking for anything else.
Aidan: But I am. You know, last night when we -- well, I really enjoyed your company and I'd like to do it again. Well, not do it again, but -- um, ask you out to dinner or something.
Aidan: Yeah, I mean, if you're free.
Kendall: Well, I -- I have to get back to work. I have a conference call with the L.A. division, so I've got to go.
Aidan: Well, I'm going to be working here till late, anyway, so --
Kendall: Okay. Here. Call me and let me know when you'll pick me up.
Aidan: I'll do that.
Maria: You know, that Sam can really play ball. He can play basketball pretty well.
Edmund: Yeah, well, maybe we should put up a hoop at Wildwind.
Maria: For who, Sam or you?
Edmund: What do you mean?
Maria: Well, hey, you know, I don't want to say anything, but that air ball --
Edmund: I think that air ball said it all.
Maria: That you suck!
Edmund: I was going to say "stink," but --
Edmund: Hold on one second. I do not -- hello? Yeah. Now? All right, hold on. Listen, that's work.
Edmund: I'll take this out here. Can you get us a table?
Maria: I will.
Edmund: All right.
Maria: I will. Aidan. Hey, I didn't expect to see you here.
Aidan: I've got a part-time gig.
Maria: Good. You know, if this is uncomfortable with Edmund and --
Aidan: No, no way. I mean, this is a public place.
Maria: Yeah, but you work here. You can't leave. We can.
Aidan: Why would you want to do that?
Maria: Because this is weird and it's strange and I'm sorry.
Aidan: Maureen, there's nothing unpleasant about seeing you, ever.
Maria: Aidan, I don't want to hurt you. I just never want to hurt you.
Aidan: The only thing that would hurt me is if I lost you as a friend.
Maria: No chance of that. Really. Thank you so much for being understanding.
David: You can't just quit your job.
Anna: I already did.
David: Anna, we talked about this. You wanted this job. You earned it.
Anna: Well, some things are more important.
David: Like what? What? Not me? No. Anna, I'm not worth it, okay?
Anna: This child is, and you're his father --
David: You can't quit your job for me. You can't do that.
Anna: David, whether I am with you or not, I am ineffective as Chief of Police, because no matter how many laws you break -- and you always do -- I can't go after you because my heart isn't in it.
David: Yeah, well, it was until last night.
Anna: No, honestly, it wasn't, not enough. So if my objectivity is compromised, I really don't deserve the position. It's not right.
David: No, what's not right is you leaving. That's what's not right.
Anna: Oh -- sit down. Sit down, please. It's a job, David.
David: No, it's not just a job. This is important to you.
Anna: So is my life and my family. Greenlee was right. Leo's death really should have made me think about everything, because Leo lived his life so completely and fully, and I had to ask myself was I doing the same thing. And honestly, no, I wasn't.
David: Oh, what are you talking about? You're the most complete woman I've ever known.
Anna: But Leo put his family first. He really cared. I want to do that. I owe that to him, and I owe it to myself, quite frankly, I do.
David: Are you're saying you want to be a family? You, me, and this baby?
Anna: I don't -- I just -- we should just concentrate on you and me for now.
David: Anna, I don't know how I could even begin to say thank you to you.
Anna: I am so hungry. Could you please order up a sandwich?
David: Yeah, yeah, yeah, all right. Coming up. Go.
Anna: I'm going to get a shower.
Anna: What do you mean, good?
David: Yes, room service, please.
[Knock on door]
David: Ah, yeah, just hold on for a minute, okay? Just for a minute.
Aidan: No, it's just you and your husband are getting on really well. I saw you two in the park last night.
Maria: You did? Why didn't you come by and say something? What -- oh, man, Aidan -- we had plans last night and I totally forgot. I am so sorry. Oh, my God.
Aidan: It's okay. I figured that you were busy with Edmund.
Maria: No, it's not okay. I totally blew you off. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
Aidan: Look, Edmund was totally ticked off with David Hayward, and I can understand that. I mean, it's a good thing you went after him.
Maria: You saw everything? Wow, Aidan.
Aidan: And you want to get connected with Maria, and from what I could see, you were doing a really good job. I'm really happy for you.
Maria: I'm sorry. You know, you're a far better friend than I deserve. Got you. Thank you.
Aidan: You're back.
Kendall: You still have that napkin with my number on it?
Aidan: Yeah, sure. Somewhere.
Aidan: What? What are you doing?
Kendall: I am nobody's consolation prize.
Edmund: I'm sorry that took so long.
Maria: Oh, that's okay. I was talking to Aidan. I feel so bad. We had plans last night, and I totally stood him up. I blew him off.
Edmund: Oh. I feel sorry for him.
Maria: You. Edmund, you better sit down and be nice.
Edmund: No, I really -- I do. You know. No, I had a better time last night than he did.
Maria: Even though I put the brakes on?
Edmund: I'm glad you did. You were right. And nothing brought that point home more than Sam and Maddie today.
Maria: Oh, my gosh. You know, I never realized how much of an impact everything that we do has on them.
Edmund: And everything is open to misinterpretation. I mean, even something as simple as a kiss. Even though our kiss wasn't simple. I'm not, you know -- if you ever have the urge to do that again --
Maria: Yeah, I know where to come find you.
Maria: But you're right. We have to be very careful.
Edmund: You're right. I know.
Maria: It's just that, you know, it's a funny thing, because I'm not used to what I do having any impact on anyone, because for five years, I didn't have anybody who cared about what I did, whether I lived or died.
Edmund: People cared. You just didn't remember them.
Maria: I've just been very independent, you know? I'm not used to having anybody tell me how I should be or, you know, how I should think and -- you know, but I can't help wondering what I was like and what Maria was like. It's really -- it's weird. I always thought that memories were just something that you sort of trotted out like a photo album or something where you kind of go, "Oh, hey, look, that's that picnic where I tore my dress," or "Ooh, that was the best birthday party I ever had." Or -- you know, and then you'd put them away and you move on. But it's not. You --
Maria: I never realized how much memories define who you are, and I have got no reference points anymore, you know? I've -- I'm just living my intuition.
Edmund: You have to ask me why I think you're the strongest person I know? You're a beautiful woman and your life is going to be filled with beautiful memories. I promise you.
Edmund: Maria, what is it?
Maria: No, no --
Edmund: Do you remember something?
Aidan: Kendall, Kendal, wait. What was all that about?
Kendall: Leave me alone. I have to get back to work.
Aidan: I thought you said you'd already finished work.
Kendall: Oh, obviously you thought that.
Aidan: What is that, some kind of female talk? Because I don't get it.
Kendall: Well, then I'll make it extra clear -- I do not appreciate being used.
Aidan: Used? When did I -- when were you used?
Kendall: Last night. Your precious little damsel in distress, Maria, went running off to her husband, and you needed a stand-in.
Aidan: You're not a stand-in for anyone.
Kendall: Well, if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with, right?
Aidan: No. Wrong. Last night was about me and you, and if you want to ruin it, you've gone the right way about it.
David: What do you want?
Jack: I'd like to speak to Anna, if I may.
Anna: Who is it? Oh, hi, Jackson.
Jack: Hello, Chief. Maybe I should come back when you're dressed.
David: She slept late. I was stopping by to talk to her about our divorce, and I woke her up.
Anna: Don't bother lying.
Jack: Say, David, looks like somebody gave you a well deserved beating.
Anna: Why are you here, Jack?
Jack: I think you know why I'm here.
Anna: It's all right. David knows about my resignation.
Jack: Yes, I'm sure he does.
Anna: What is that supposed to mean?
Jack: You must be thrilled to death that your ex-wife isn't gunning for you anymore, probably the reason for your little nocturnal visit here.
David: Well, you know me so well, Jackson.
Anna: You think that David had something to do with my decision?
Jack: It wouldn't surprise me at all if he had everything to do with your decision.
David: Wrong again, Jack. If I knew that Anna wanted to quit her job, I would have stopped it.
Anna: No one coerced me into resigning. No one.
Jack: Well, maybe I can coerce you into taking back this resignation.
Anna: Jackson, come in. We already talked about this.
Jack: Yes, yes, we did, and as I recall, you told me that you would sleep on it.
Anna: Watch your mouth. I don't know why you would want me back, anyway. You've been gunning for my badge for months.
Jack: Because you had a conflict of interest. But if you could just stay away from David, you'd make a hell of a police chief. You're smart, you're tenacious. You're one of the best cops I've ever known.
Anna: Okay, so just back it up a little, because the operative phrase here is "as long as I can stay away from David." Well, clearly, I am unable to do that. Whether we are married or not, he's always going to be part of my life because of this baby.
Jack: So that's it? You're just going to throw away your career, your whole life's work for him? Think about it. Is it really worth it, Anna?
David: You might find this amusing, Jack, but for once in our lives, you and I are on the same page. I don't want her to quit, either.
Anna: Don't you start.
David: All right, I won't. I'll let the good D.A. here finish the talking. But I want you to think about what I said earlier, Anna. I meant it. You know, I don't want you to have any regrets about this. Good luck, Jack. I mean it. Look, I'll be downstairs in the bar waiting for you if you want to see me after he's had his say. I'll have that corned beef sandwich waiting for you.
Jack: Have you completely and utterly lost your mind?
Anna: Yeah, I have.
Edmund: Are you all right?
Edmund: Waiter, could I get a glass of water for my wife, please?
Waiter: Yes, Sir.
Edmund: What is it? Was it something from the plane crash site or --
Maria: No, it's nothing, really. No, it's nothing.
Edmund: But you remembered something.
Maria: No, it's -- really, what it is, is just a headache. Like, I get these headaches now that just -- they smack me right between the eye. I can't see.
Edmund: You never got them before. Why are you so afraid to tell me what you remember?
Maria: Edmund, why do you think that it's something that I'm remembering?
Edmund: Because this has happened before, like yesterday at the park.
Maria: No, it's -- I'm fine, really thank you. Thanks.
Edmund: I really want to help you. I wish you could believe that.
Maria: I do. I do believe that.
David: Maureen? What's wrong?
Kendall: Ruin what? There's nothing to ruin.
Aidan: Yes, there is. There's you and me. Last night, Kendall, we connected.
Kendall: We connected? No -- no, no, we didn't connect. That was just a one-night stand. That's it.
Aidan: Hey, it was a lot more than a one-night stand. Ten minutes ago, you gave me your number, and we were going to go out tonight on a date.
Kendall: Well, that was a mistake. That was before. I didn't know that --
Aidan: Didn't know what?
Kendall: Look, I saw you with her.
Aidan: With who?
Kendall: Maria, just now. I know that you had plans with her last night, and she stood you up, so you came looking for the nearest warm bed.
Aidan: That is not how it was.
Kendall: That is how it was. Hey, anything to get you through the night, right?
Aidan: That is not how I work, thank you.
Kendall: Oh, I know how you work. I've seen it before. You were just like every other guy who slept with me and then dumped me the morning after.
Aidan: But I didn't dump you.
Kendall: You made me think I can get past Ryan, but this whole time, you were using me to get over Maria.
Aidan: How can you say that? How do I not know that you didn't use me to get over Ryan?
Kendall: Just leave me alone, okay? Leave me alone.
Aidan: Kendall -- Kendall --
Waiter: I'm so sorry.
Aidan: Are you all right?
Kendall: No, just leave me alone. You've done enough. You've done enough.
Aidan: Kendall, wait.
Aidan: Kendall, come on.
Edmund: You've got a lot of nerve coming here, Hayward.
David: Well, I just stopped by because it looked like something was wrong with Maureen.
Maria: No, I just have a headache, that's it.
David: Is it a headache or is it a migraine?
Edmund: What does it matter? Why don't you get the hell out of here?
David: Well, it matters if I'm going to treat her.
Edmund: Oh, yeah. Like, I'm going to let you stick another needle full of experimental drugs into my wife. You're not going to do anything for her.
David: Look, she needed me five years ago, right? But what the hell do I know? I just saved her life, right?
Edmund: Kind of ruined it is more like it.
David: Does your wife look ruined to you, Edmund? She's here, she's alive, she's healthy, she's beautiful. If I were you, I'd be grateful.
Edmund: Look, if I were you, I would just stop talking before I finish what I started last night.
David: Oh, really? What is that supposed to mean? You're going to pounce on me again? Well, maybe you should hear this, tough guy. I let you get away with that last night, but I'm not going to be so generous next time.
Edmund: You want to talk about generous? You played God with my wife's life, all right? Now she may forgive you, but trust me, I'm going to find a way to make you pay.
David: Oh, yeah? For what?
David: What, for bringing you back the love of your life?
David: Maybe you should consider yourself lucky, Edmund.
Edmund: Why don't you just stay the hell away from my wife?
Maria: Stop it. Will you two just stop, please? I can't take this.
Aidan: Hey, where are you going? You stay away from her.
Anna: Come on. Tell me how idiotic I am for starting up with David again.
Jack: Oh, I don't think that's my place.
Anna: Really? We both know he's egotistical and thinks he's above the law, so --
Jack: Yeah, and that's exactly what will eventually bring him down. He's gotten away with every crime he's ever committed, so now he thinks he can get away with anything. I'm telling you, next time he crosses the line -- and there will be a next time -- I'm going to be right there to catch him.
Anna: Here's a concept -- maybe he won't cross the line.
Jack: Anna, just last night you told me that David has a dark side, he has a hard time hiding. I guarantee you, it'll raise its ugly head again. And when it does, I'll be there, and I don't care how long it takes. I'm a very patient man.
Anna: Yeah, you are.
Jack: I'll even wait for you to pick this badge back up and put it on.
Anna: I have to resign.
Jack: All right, look, how about a compromise? Why don't you take a leave of absence?
Anna: A leave of absence?
Jack: A short leave. And when it's over, if you still think you want to step down as police chief, then I won't stand in your way.
Anna: I don't know what would change my feelings. Really, I donít.
Jack: Will you please -- please just think about it? Get back to me with your decision in a few days.
Anna: I'll think about it.
Jack: Good. Anna, I know you'll do the right thing, because, you know, this isn't just about your life. This is about your baby's future, too.
David: Get your hands off me.
Aidan: Is it not enough to you that you kept Maureen away from her family for the last five years? You have to carry on torturing her, too?
David: I was trying to help her. You know something? I don't have to justify myself to you.
Aidan: You're probably right. You don't have to justify yourself to me, but you should do it to Anna. Does she know that you're down here chasing off the women?
David: What the hell are you talking about? Anna knows that I'm here, all right?
Aidan: Anna knows that you're a snake, and you're going to try and wiggle your way back into her good graces. And I'm just worried that you're not only going to ruin her life, but that little baby's, too.
David: Come on, Anna. What's taking you so long?
Jack's voice: Because, you know, this isn't just about your life. It's about your baby's future, too.
David: Yeah, thanks.
Kendall's voice: I've seen it before. You're just like every other guy who slept with me and then dumped me the morning after.
Aidan: You're wrong, Kendall. I'm not like every other guy.
Kendall: Stupid, snotty, sneaky brit! Thinks I'm going to be a port in his storm? I'll show him a storm. I can't stand him.
Aidan's voice: "Kendall, I am sorry it took so long for me to see what a special lady you are. And now that I know, I won't soon forget. Aidan."
Jack's voice: That's really sweet, but it's late for an 11th-hour --
David: Who the hell are you? I'm trying to talk to my wife!
Jack: Yeah, well, it's over now, son. Excuse us.
David: Anna, don't walk away from me, please, not like this, okay? She's not coming.
David: Hey. Just as I promised.
Anna: You didn't get anything for yourself?
David: No, I wasn't sure I was going to have an appetite. You took a while to come down here. I was starting to worry.
Anna: Good. It's good for you to worry.
David: You're right, it is, because you've given me a whole new chance at a new life here, Anna. Starting over, trying to make things right. And I am going to make things right, Anna. You'll see.
Anna: You know, before you start hanging that swing from the willow tree, there's something we need to get straight.
David: Sure. What?
Anna: Well, every time I feel like I know you or that I'm letting you get close to me, something horrible happens that ruins everything.
David: That's not going to happen, Anna. Everything that's going on here right now with Maria is all from my past, okay? It has nothing to do with the man that I've become.
Anna: Is there anything more?
Anna: From your past? You know, something that is going to pop up and hurt me and the baby?
David: Why do you think that?
Anna: Well, just tell me the truth, David. Is there anything else that I need to know? Tell me now, please.
David: No. Nothing. There is nothing else for you to know.
Maria: What were you doing on that beach, David? What are you trying to hide? I'm going to find out. I'm going to find out, if I've got to go there by myself and figure it out. What, Edmund? What are you doing?
Edmund: What are you doing?
Maria: Look, I just need some time alone, okay? I'm fine, I'm fine.
Edmund: That memory flash was about David, wasn't it? That's why you freaked out when he showed up.
Maria: I cannot get into this with you right now.
Edmund: Would you prefer to get into it with David?
Maria: No, I -- there's something that I need to do and I need to do it by myself, okay? Please just go.
Edmund: I'm not going anywhere. I left you alone on that plane. I'll be damned if I leave you alone here. Wherever you're going, I'm going with you.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Greenlee: Don't look now, but you and I are on the same side.
Chris: I want to talk about busting another lowlife.
Jack: And who might that be?
Chris: Eric Kane.
Maggie: You're out of my life and you can never come back.
Maria: What have I done? Edmund?
