Proofread by Alicia
>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Trey: This is your first night back. You're right. I know that I haven't been sleeping so well since --
Trey: You want me to stay?
Aidan: What if you stop talking and you give this a chance?
David: I swear to you on the life of our child, it is not as bad as it seems.
Maria: It's a body! How much worse could it be?
Kendall: Yes, Casey. Yes, Iím on top of it. The quarterly reports? Yes, I have them right here. Not a problem. Nikki, get in here! "Not a problem." Yeah, like hell. Nikki -- Nikki, Casey wants the quarterly reports starting before immediately -- oh, thank God.
Nikki: "Legend" magazine on line two.
Kendall: "Legend"? Oh, God. Roberta. Hi. How are you? So, what did you think? I'm sure you're just as excited as we are. No? You didn't get them? Yes, yes, I do know you have a deadline. No. No, Greenlee's not here anymore. I've taken over for her temporarily. Problem solved, Roberta. The material will be on your desk within the hour, and that's a promise. The samples did not make it over to "legend" magazine. This is Greenleeís baby. She worked her butt off for this deal.
Nikki: I'll go downstairs and see what happened.
Kendall: No, don't even bother. Their deadline is 5:00 p.m. Just get a whole new bunch of samples over to them, no excuses. And one more thing -- just whatever you do, make sure Casey does not know that we're in trouble because if she finds out, she's going to throw us -- Casey.
Casey: The deal with "Legend" magazine is in trouble?
Kendall: No. No, no, no, it was just a small mix-up. I was just exaggerating to make a point.
[pounding on door]
Trey: Greenlee? Greenlee?
Trey: Greenlee, I know you're in there.
Greenlee: Go away.
Trey: Just open the door. I'll go on pounding all day. You know I will.
Trey: Look at you.
Greenlee: You don't have to.
Trey: Wait a minute.
Greenlee: Why are you here? I already kicked you out once today.
Trey: That was yesterday.
Greenlee: Yesterday? Hmm.
Trey: You've been here all this time? Doing what?
Greenlee: What does it look like?
Trey: So you've been in bed for two days?
Tad: Maureen? I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you. I just sort of -- I had to come.
Maria: Why? What are you looking for?
Tad: You know what's funny? I asked myself the same question when I was getting in the car. I'm neglecting my work, family's falling apart at the seams, and yet here I am.
David: What are you thinking?
Anna: Oh, just I wish they'd finish with you so we can get the hell out of here.
David: We will win in the end, Anna. I promise you.
Anna: We'll see.
David: It's so easy for them to accuse me of every ridiculous crime under the sun. We're going to show them, Anna. We're going to prove to them that this time I am completely innocent.
Trey: Why don't you go to work, hmm? You still have your job, don't you?
Greenlee: I don't have to work. I'm back to being a rich heiress. My grandfather is throwing money at me.
Trey: Yeah, well, there's still time to pull yourself together. Look at you. I mean, if Leo could see you right now --
Greenlee: Leo canít. You jerk. How dare you.
Trey: How long is this going to go on, Greenlee?
Greenlee: Maybe forever. I'll wallow in all the misery I want to.
Trey: Do you really think that this is what Leo would want?
Greenlee: There's nothing else I can do.
Trey: If Leo is in heaven, he's having way too good a time to be impressed with this. But if, as I suspect, that's all a crock, then the only place Leo exists right now is right here. And you have to go on. You have to carry on for him. You have to keep being the person that he loved.
Trey: Or maybe Iím all wrong and he's really getting off on your puffy eyes and ratty robe.
Kendall: I have the quarterly reports you wanted.
Casey: Thank you. Have you spoken to Greenlee?
Kendall: We speak almost every day. She's having a rough time.
Casey: I told her to take all the time she needs.
Kendall: Well, not a lot of executives would be so understanding.
Casey: Greenlee is a valuable asset here at Giovanna Cosmetics, more valuable than I realized.
Kendall: Yes, I absolutely agree.
Casey: Greenlee worked for months to get the New Year's issue of "Legend" magazine. Thanks to her, they went with us instead of Enchantment. Now, we don't want them to regret that.
Kendall: They won't. They won't, Casey. Don't worry.
Casey: Are you sure you have things under control?
Kendall: Yes, I swear. Everything is copasetic.
Nikki: The samples never got to the magazine. They were down in the lobby.
Kendall: Which is why I fired our courier service and hired this man's company. He has an excellent, excellent track record and a five-star rating with his previous employers. He will not let us down. Will you?
Casey: So you're the new courier service?
Aidan: Yeah, brand-new.
Casey: Where have you worked before?
Kendall: Enchantment. I stole him away from Enchantment.
Casey: Well, I like that. Welcome aboard.
Kendall: There's nothing to worry about, Casey. I will take care of this problem so you don't have to be worried.
Casey: Oh, I won't be because I want you to do all the worrying.
Kendall: Thank you, thank you so much. Thank you for not busting me.
Aidan: If Iíd told her, "she's lying," then mine and your lunch date wouldn't really go down very well.
Kendall: Oh, God, I so owe you. I will give you anything you want. Anything -- you name it.
Aidan: Ok. All right, then. How about you pay for lunch?
Kendall: Deal. But that'll have to be another time. I can't leave here now.
Aidan: Oh, of course. I guess not until you've got Greenleeís job firmly in your pocket, right?
Kendall: Why does everybody think I want Greenleeís job?
Aidan: Because you're Kendall?
Kendall: No, actually, Greenleeís job is the last thing I want. I can't even do my own, which is why I need you to help me. I -- this big box needs to be at this address in 45 minutes or less.
Aidan: So you really want me to be your delivery guy?
Kendall: Just for today. Aidan, please. Please, you have no idea how much is riding on this.
Aidan: Well, this lunch that you're going to pay for better be followed by one huge dessert.
Tad: He took five years of your life. He cost me what was most important in mine.
Maria: Ok, so that's why you're here -- revenge.
Tad: Not a good enough reason? I'm sorry. It's the only one I got. Why are you here? You look cold and tired.
Maria: I don't know. I just keep thinking that maybe this place will help me remember something, anything.
Tad: Has it?
Maria: No. But I can't give up because now it's more important than ever.
Tad: Why is that?
Maria: Just Iím more alone now. I relied on David to ground me in reality.
Tad: Bad choice.
Maria: Yeah. Yeah, well, I know that now, finally.
Tad: You know, I've been tracking every move he made around the time your plane went down. For instance, I know he found you here. Now they tell me he did it while he was burying some poor slob right there. I'd give a lot to know who he was trying to hide.
Maria: Well, the police took the remains. You're going to have to ask them.
Tad: No, no. Forensics, I.D. -- Cops won't have any answers for a while now. I was kind of hoping that, you know, you would.
Maria: I don't know who it was. I don't even know if I knew him.
Tad: I'm sorry.
Tad: I know how that is.
Maria: Well, I don't know how you would know how that is.
Tad: About 12 years ago, I got hurt pretty badly. Same thing happened to me. Only thing I remember is that I hated it.
Maria: Really? But you got your memory back?
Tad: Yeah. You may, too.
Maria: Well, I can't just wait around for that to happen anymore. I need to get some answers for myself.
Tad: Maybe I can help you.
Tad: I told you. Because wherever your answers are, whatever they are, they have a lot to do with David Hayward.
Maria: Oh, oh, ok. So this is -- you're going to help me to get David.
David: Anna, they're in there right now trying to cook up homicide charges against me without the slightest bit of evidence.
Anna: I know. All this for one little 5-year-old cadaver.
David: Which was a cadaver when I buried it.
Anna: See? There you go.
David: The tests are going to prove soon enough that I did not kill that man.
Anna: And you don't think that the police and the D.A. have every right to ask you what the hell you were doing burying a dead body on a public beach? Quite frankly, the thought has been crossing my mind a lot.
David: I'm happy to tell you anything you want to know, Anna.
Anna: No, donít. I'm not your wife anymore. I can be forced to testify.
David: And would you?
Anna: Well, would you rather me be thrown in jail for contempt if I don't?
David: No, of course not.
Anna: Ok, so don't tell me anything.
David: All right. But just know in your heart that I did not kill anyone.
Anna: I actually do believe that. I suppose, in your own way, you were trying to help Maria.
David: Yes, of course I was.
Tad: You know, I'm curious about something.
Tad: When he told you you'd killed somebody, why did you believe him?
Maria: Because he'd been good to me. I had no reason to think he was lying. You know, why would he?
Tad: Well, most normal people wouldn't. But then again, most normal people wouldn't hide a body on a public beach.
Tad: You think he was trying to set you up with this?
Maria: I was already convinced I was guilty of this. That's why when you and Brooke came down to Nevada, I just -- I was scared to death.
Tad: I kind of figured. By the way, that woman you set me up with, the one that looked like you -- very clever.
Maria: Thank you. Well, you know, when you're on the run, you have to learn to be kind of clever.
Tad: I only wish to God I had found you before --
Maria: Yeah, before Edmund and Brooke got married?
Tad: A lot of people would've been spared a lot of pain.
Maria: Including my kids.
Tad: So, you ready?
Maria: Ready for what?
Tad: Make sure that David doesn't get away with it this time.
Kendall: Ok, I -- I think this is everything.
Nikki: You sure?
Kendall: Yes. No. No. Wait, wait, wait, wait. I need you to fax this for me and stand by the machine and make sure every single one of them goes through. I don't want to have anything else go wrong today.
Kendall: You go. I'll get that.
Kendall: Kendall Hart. No, Greenleeís not here anymore. I'm in charge. Yes, I do have the authority to order that, and if you have a problem with it, you can speak to Miss Wexler. Greenlee.
Greenlee: Looks like you weren't expecting me.
Kendall: No, I wasn't, but I'm having a hell of a time. Thank God you're here.
Greenlee: Oh? I'm supposed to believe you're thrilled about that?
Kendall: Well, we've missed you.
Greenlee: I'm in mourning, Kendall. I'm not stupid. You've taken over.
Kendall: Greenlee, your job has a lot of duties attached to it. If you're not here, someone has to do them.
Greenlee: Yes, but not with so much relish.
Kendall: I had to assert myself. Everyone here keeps asking about you. Everyone can't wait for you to come back.
Greenlee: Which is why you have to act fast, isn't it? I mean, I've lost everything else. Why not my job, too.
Kendall: You got it all wrong.
Greenlee: No, I know you, Kendall. No morals, no scruples, and there you are behind my desk pretending to be me.
Kendall: You don't understand. That's not how it is.
Greenlee: Oh, but I do. I've been there. When I worked for Erica, I tried to undermine her. She saw through me, and I see through you.
Kendall: Greenlee, I'm telling you, Iím not trying to --
Casey: Greenlee. This is a surprise.
Greenlee: Yes. I sense that.
Casey: So, are you ready to come back to work?
Greenlee: What if I said yes? Would that upset your plans?
Casey: I'm sorry?
Kendall: Everything's ok, Casey. I was actually just bringing Greenlee up to speed.
Greenlee: Oh, I know all I need to know. She really is stepping up to the plate, isn't she?
Casey: Uh -- Kendallís working out very nicely, so you -- you take all the personal time you need.
Man: I'm here to see Chief Devane.
Officer: You mean ex-Chief Devane. Over there with Dr. Death.
Man: Good evening. I'm Kenny Adler.
Anna: Oh, Mr. Adler, yes. This is the attorney I hired to represent you, David. This is Dr. Hayward.
David: Huh. And how many weeks have you been out of law school, Kenny?
Kenny: Two whole years.
Anna: You should be grateful. Mr. Adler comes highly recommended.
David: Really? By whom, his kindergarten teacher?
Anna: That's funny.
Kenny: You know, we can stand around and talk about my baby face, or we can figure out a way to get you out of this mess. Either way, I'm on the clock.
David: All right. I could work with him.
Anna: See? I'll leave you two to talk. I'm not covered by privilege.
David: So, tell me, Junior, which strategy are you going to use to get me off?
Kenny: Let's start at the top. What do they have against you?
David: Oh, nothing much. Just a cadaver that's been rotting on a beach for the past five years. The guy happens to be a former patient.
Jack: So, are you here in an official capacity?
Anna: No. What can you tell me?
Kendall: Greenlee, you know we need you around here. I -- I can't wait for you to come back.
Casey: Greenlee, darling, are you all right? Do you need to sit down? Do you -- do you need a drink of water?
Greenlee: I'm fine. What I need is a little loyalty, but I guess that's too much to ask.
Casey: I'm sorry. I'm afraid I don't understand.
Kendall: Greenlee thinks I'm trying to steal her job, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Casey: Well, she couldn't even if she wanted to.
Kendall: In fact, I'm messing up. Casey -- Casey almost fired me this morning.
Casey: That's right, and the only reason I didn't is because I'm expecting you back as soon as you're up to it --
Greenlee: Stop it. Stop -- stop -- stop it! I'm so sick of everyone's phony kindness and sympathy.
Kendall: Greenlee, it's true. You know that deal -- you know that deal that you made with "Legend" magazine? Well, I almost tanked it.
Greenlee: My deal with "Legend" magazine?
Kendall: Yeah. I -- I trusted other people to do my job when I should have followed through the way that you always do. Luckily I pulled it off at the last minute --
Greenlee: I sweated over that project for six months. Those publishers made me jump through hoops, and I did it.
Kendall: That's right, you did.
Greenlee: I convinced them to go with us instead of Enchantment. And to get the better of Ericaís empire -- that's an achievement.
Kendall: Of course it is. I mean, anytime anyone beats Erica, that's good news in my book.
Casey: And it didn't go unnoticed at corporate headquarters. You were the darling of the boardroom.
Greenlee: What was it all for? What good did it do? All those long hours behind this desk, sitting up at laptops, stressing out over this when I should've been with Leo. How many times did I tell him "I have to work"? One night he wanted me to go to a triple feature at the drive-in and eat all the buttered popcorn that I could eat. But I was too busy. And now I'll never go to a drive-in with him again -- never. I can't be here. You know, you want this job? Take it. It's yours.
Kendall: No, Greenlee, stop. You -- Greenlee, you don't mean that.
Casey: Greenlee, darling, please don't leave here. You're a valuable member of this corporate family --
Greenlee: Yeah, I don't want to be a member of this family! I want my own family, and I can't have it now.
Kendall: Greenlee -- Greenlee -- Greenlee, wait. Please don't -- don't listen to her. She's -- she's very upset and emotional. She's not making any sense. That was her grief talking, not her.
Casey: It's heartbreaking. It really is. But I've got a business to run, and it doesn't seem like Greenleeís going to be back anytime soon. Can you really do this job, Kendall?
Casey: Well, I have my doubts, but we don't have much choice right now, so let's -- let's give it a try.
Kendall: Ok, but I wasn't trying to --
Casey: Yes, yes. Look, I know you're not angling for Greenleeís job. And, anyway, look, if you screw up the way you did this morning, you won't have the job for long.
Kendall: Aidan. You deliver the package?
Aidan: Yep, without a hitch.
Kendall: Oh, you work fast.
Tad: Jack? What is it? What's going on?
Jack: We got the results of the autopsy here.
Tad: Really? Is this the guy that David killed?
Anna: What does it say, Jack?
Jack: It says that the deceased died of cardiac failure and had been dead for at least six months before that body was buried on the beach.
Tad: Six months? Where'd you stash him, a meat locker?
Jack: Apparently he had donated his body for medical research, and his body, his remains, were frozen prior to dissection.
Tad: Wait a minute. Wait just a minute. If that's the case, then why the hell would you go to all the trouble of burying him in secret?
David: Yeah, Tad, Iím going to answer all your questions because, of course, this matter really concerns you, right?
Tad: Well, I'm sorry for being curious, doc. It's just I come from a big family of doctors --
Jack: Whoa, whoa --
Tad: And I can't remember one of them hiding a body underneath a sand castle.
David: No, no, no. He's no one.
Kenny: Fine. Then Iíll deal with the D.A. I'd like a copy of that.
Jack: Mr. Adler.
Kenny: I'm demanding that you release my client immediately.
Jack: Are you, indeed?
Kenny: My client is a world-renowned physician who just this week saved a prominent citizen's life. We both know you can't keep him here because he disposed of medical waste improperly.
Tad: Aren't you a sensitive type of guy.
Jack: We can keep him here, Mr. Adler. We choose not to.
Kenny: Thank you very much, Mr. Montgomery. Now, who's going to process Dr. Hayward's release?
Jack: Sergeant, if you please.
David: Take it easy.
Kenny: You are one shove away from a police brutality report.
Jack: Shh. You're too loud.
Greenlee: Bills, bills, bills. New York city.
Greenlee: Leo. I miss you so much.
Kendall: Look, I don't really care what you believe, but I did not try to steal Greenleeís job.
Aidan: I believe you. I believe you.
Kendall: In fact, I actually bent over backwards to help her save it.
Aidan: I know.
Kendall: You know?
Aidan: Yeah, I was out there a while ago just listening to your conversation.
Kendall: Well, then you heard how she broke down and how I tried to help --
Aidan: And how you smoothed things over with the boss, yeah.
Kendall: Greenlee belongs here.
Aidan: I guess it's a habit of yours, going around saving everybody else's job. But then I did thank you for saving mine.
Kendall: Yes, you did. God, I feel so bad for Greenlee.
Aidan: Yeah, she must be hurting bad.
Kendall: I don't even know what the hell she's doing here. I mean, she just lost the love of her life.
Aidan: Like you did.
Kendall: But I got over it. Is that what you meant?
Aidan: Well, I don't know how or whether you have got over Ryan, but I trust you will someday.
Kendall: You should know that what happened -- that has nothing to do with how I feel about Ryan.
Aidan: Yeah. I understand.
Kendall: Ok, I just -- I just don't want you to get the wrong idea about me.
Aidan: Well, it wouldn't be the first time if I didn't get you.
Kendall: Ok, I have to get back to work. I told Casey that I could handle Greenleeís job, and no one believes that, including me.
Trey: You're doing what? Was Greenlee here?
Kendall: Yes, and she went home.
Trey: Was that before or after you stole her job? My God, Kendall, how could you? You knew that she was falling apart, and you stole her job.
Aidan: Sorry. Are you going to go on all day, or are you going to let her explain?
Kendall: Oh. I don't have to explain myself to a deceitful criminal like him.
Trey: We're not through, Kendall.
Aidan: Why don't you tell him the truth -- that Greenlee gave up her job?
Kendall: Because I don't owe anyone an explanation, and that's the truth.
Aidan: And if anyone doesn't think so, I suppose they can go to hell?
Greenlee: How did you get in here?
Mary: Well, your door wasn't properly shut. There's something wrong with the lock, and I got concerned.
Greenlee: Yes, the break-in. Donald Steele jimmied the lock.
Mary: Donald Steele? That parasite broke in here?
Greenlee: Oh, it's ok. I handled it. I held him off at gunpoint. So, you see, it's not too wise to come in here uninvited.
Mary: Greenlee, darling, you don't look well at all. Please, just talk to me.
Greenlee: Well, I went into work today.
Greenlee: But I found out Kendall stole my job.
Mary: Kendall Hart stole your job? But she's no match for us, and you can get rid of her.
Greenlee: No, mommy, the thing is I don't care. It doesn't matter anymore. Nothing matters.
Mary: Oh, baby. Oh, baby. There.
Greenlee: I can't do this.
Mary: It's ok. It's ok.
Greenlee: Trey said that I have to live my life for Leo, that I have to be the person that Leo loved.
Mary: He's right. You do.
Greenlee: But I can't do it.
Mary: Yes, you can.
Greenlee: I canít.
Mary: Yes, you can! I'll help you.
Greenlee: How? I mean, all I do is ever think about Leo and what we had and what we could've had together, and I know I shouldnít. I shouldnít.
Mary: And you know what? When we lose somebody that we love, we have to find a way to distract our minds.
Greenlee: I can't go back to work.
Mary: We have to get busy with something.
Greenlee: I canít.
Mary: Well, then, let's travel. That's always fun. Have you ever been to Buenos Aires? It's a gorgeous city. It's springtime there at this time of year, and the shops are fabulous. We could bring the whole country back in our bags. We can get gloves and shoes and furs and diamonds and --
Tad: You can't just let Hayward go. You got to charge him with something.
Jack: Tad, I don't have anything on him that will stick.
Tad: It doesn't make any difference. It would get him off the street for a while.
Jack: There's no point in putting him in jail if he's going to be out in a day and a half.
Tad: Yes, there is. He would be behind bars for a day and a half.
Jack: Tad, it doesn't work that way. I have to consider the court's time, the use of the resources of my office.
Tad: Don't do that. Don't get all bureaucratic on me, ok? It's me, and we're talking about Hayward.
Jack: And I know it's personal for you, but I've got to keep it professional or Iím going to lose this guy. Now, he's got a young shark for a lawyer, and I don't want him swimming up and biting me in the rear end because I'm standing here nickel-and-diming.
Tad: Well, that's too damn bad because a day and a half would be just about all I need.
Jack: For what? I'm so sorry I asked.
Tad: To find out why he buried that guy on the beach.
Jack: And what do you think you could find out that I couldn't?
Tad: Jack, you're the D.A. you're not allowed to break the law.
Jack: Neither are you, Tad, but what do you have in mind?
Tad: You were at the hospital. It's the same deal. You knew Jake was going to go through Haywardís records. That's how we knew he was using the same drug on Maria he used on Dixie. Now, I can give you something else, but you got to give me half a chance.
Jack: Shh, shh, shh. I'll give you a day and a half.
Tad: 36 little hours.
Tad: We've got 36 hours.
Maria: To do what?
David: So I can go home?
Kenny: Absolutely. You're a free man.
David: Come on, darling, let's get out of here.
Anna: Yeah. Good. Thanks.
Jack: I'm afraid we have some unfinished business here.
Kenny: Your own A.D.A. just signed Dr. Hayward's release papers.
Jack: Well, that was before she saw this, Mr. Alder. These are the -- the current charges against Dr. David Hayward -- and some new ones.
David: Oh, come -- what is this?
Kenny: "Abuse of --" "criminal mischief"?
Anna: Can I see this, please? This is harassment, you know, pure and simple.
Jack: I work with what Iíve got.
Kenny: It's a waste of the court's time. You know he's going to be out this time tomorrow morning.
Jack: Maybe, maybe not. But for whatever length of time, he's going to be in a jail cell. Maybe he can use the time for personal reflection. Sergeant, please show Dr. Hayward to that cell he knows so well.
Maria: Ok, so how are we going to do this? How are we going to find what he's been hiding?
Tad: We're not exactly starting from scratch. We know he used the same drug on you that he used on Dixie.
Maria: On your wife?
Tad: Right. And it's all got to be linked somehow -- what he did to Dixie, what he did to you, and what he was doing on that beach. All we have to do is figure out how. We got 36 hours to do it.
Maria: So, where should we go? Where are we going to go?
Tad: Well, I'm going to Baltimore to Johns Hopkins.
Maria: And I am going, too. I used to be a doctor and, obviously, the answer to all of this is medical. I mean, I remember being a doctor, but --
David: I guess I'll see you tomorrow.
Anna: Jackson's fishing. Don't worry.
David: I'm not worried. Look, go home, all right? Get some rest. You've been up all night.
Anna: Yeah. I could come downstairs and talk for a while. I still got some pull around here.
David: No. I appreciate it. Thank you. But I'd feel much better if I know that you and the baby are home resting.
David: My accommodations await me.
Aidan: What did I do?
Kendall: Nothing this time. But you're just like everyone else. You're always ready to think the worst of me.
Aidan: Not always. I happen to think what you did here today was pretty damn good. And I think it cancels out, I'd say, about 40% of all the crummy things you've ever done.
Kendall: Huh. You're trying to soften me up so you can knock on my door at night.
Aidan: You know what? You're messing up now. I'm saying nice things to you for real because I like you. Why can't you just say thanks and accept that?
Kendall: Because the last person who was nice to me didn't stick around for very long.
Aidan: Well, I'm not Ryan.
Kendall: No, you're not. You're not better. You're not smarter.
[knock on door]
Trey: Is Greenlee here?
Mary: Well, she was, but she left.
Trey: Where'd she go?
Mary: I don't know. She just packed a bag and left.
Trey: What happened?
Mary: It was my fault. I know I shouldn't have --
Trey: You mean she packed a bag, like a suitcase?
Mary: Yes, and she walked right past me without a word. Do you have any idea where she may have gone?
Trey: I think I know.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Brooke: I am not going to take anything from you.
Aidan: Pine Valley is not exactly your home. What's keeping you here?
Maria: You think David conducted his medical experiments on the homeless?
Leo: So, was it worth the wait?
