Previously on "All My Children"

Jake: I really want to be a father, and I think that having a family with you would be fantastic.

Adam: Liza's sponsoring this ball to raise money for Brookeís charity. We'll just all pretend everything's normal.

Brooke: What could go wrong?

Kendall: Greenlee thinks I'm trying to steal her job.

Greenlee: You want this job? Take it. It's yours.

Kendall: No, Greenlee, stop.

Winifred: Please come in.

Winifred: They need you outside, all right? Okay.

Adam: Hmm. Yes, yes. Yes, yes. Much better. Makes all the difference.

Winifred: If you say so, Mr. Chandler.

Adam: I should think so. What are you doing? We're not setting up a bar in here.

Winifred: But, Sir --

Adam: No, no, no, no. No, no, no, this is not a frat party, Winifred. I want the bar set up in the foyer outside of the ballroom. Chop-chop. Winifred, I want you to check the caviar they're bringing in here. I don't want them foisting off something they harvested from their goldfish at home.

Winifred: But I don't have to taste it, do I, Sir?

Adam: No, just check the containers.

Winifred: Yes, Sir.

Marian: Oh, it's absolutely gorgeous. Winifred, are you responsible for this transformation?

Winifred: No, ma'am, I'm responsible for the fish eggs.

Adam: Well, Marian, what do you think?

Liza: Never mind that. I'm throwing this hoedown.

Marian: I think it's superb, Adam. Congratulations.

Adam: Yeah, thank you.

Liza: Thank you.

Adam: We're going to get a fortune for the Brooke English House tonight. A fortune.

Marian: Aren't we in a party mood.

Adam: Yes, we are! It's going to be a wonderful night for the shelter.

Marian: Hmm, come here, darling.

Adam: Huh?

Marian: Mmm. You're wearing a new after-shave. It's very sexy, Adam.

Adam: Yes. Excuse me. I have to check security.

Marian: Of course, darling. Nice work, Liza.

Liza: You don't think this Venice theme is going to sink like a stone?

Marian: I was referring to the magic that you worked on Adam.

Liza: Oh, well, the magic's not mine, Mother.

Marian: Honey, he's his old self again. He even has that tigerish spring back in his step.

Liza: It's alley cat, not tiger.

Marian: Well, I am right, aren't I? Your marriage has warmed up again, hasn't it?

Liza: Mother, you couldn't be more wrong.

Marian: You mean you and Adam aren't reconciled, darling?

Liza: We don't have the time since Adam is busy reconciling with my sister.

Mia: Thinking that I might be pregnant was kind of a revelation. I want to have more babies.

Jake: Oh, I can certainly live with a big family.

Mia: It also brought up these feelings about William that made me feel --

Jake: What? Wait a sec. You're not having regrets about this adoption?

Mia: No, no, not that.

Jake: All right.

Mia: But I did drop by to see Frank after I was done here.

Jake: Well, I thought you were going to talk to the adopted family first.

Mia: I didn't tell Frank about his son. I just wanted to reconnect with him so that when the time is right, it's not so brutal.

Jake: All right, I got that. So, how was the visit?

Mia: Well, don't be surprised if we end up on a double date with Frank and Simone.

Jake: You're kidding?

Mia: No. Simone had this whole romantic evening planned for Frank, and the only lame excuse I could come up with was, "Gee, maybe we could all double-date sometime."

Jake: Mia, this -- well, it looks like Frank and Simone are seeing a lot of each other, huh?

Mia: Yeah.

Jake: Hmm.

Mia: I wonder what my little bomb will do to that relationship.

Jake: I think if they're really tight, it shouldn't matter.

Mia: Yeah, maybe. I thought I only had to worry about William. This secret's going to affect a lot of people's lives.

Frank: Hey, Brice. Hey, I really need this information, brother. Yeah, well, maybe you misspelled it. It's Anthony McMillan -- M-c-m-I-l-l-a-N. Yeah, he would've been admitted in St. Vincent's in 1998 for a drug overdose. All right, okay, it's really important, okay? Get back to me as soon as you can, all right? Thanks.

Simone: Oh. Receipts -- why can't I ever keep track of them? You would think I would've remembered exactly where the costume shop one was because it's big and it's yellow. But, no, of course I've lost that one. Where could it be? What did I do?

[Phone rings]

Simone: Hello. Myrtle Fargate's.

Man: Hi, this is Brice Dickson. Is Frank Hubbard there?

Simone: You know what? I'll check. Frank! God, jeez. You know what? I think he's left. I can take a message for you, though.

Brice: I got some information on a patient for him.

Simone: Okay, let me make sure the pen works. Yeah. Okay. And your name, again? Was it Brice, you said?

Frank: Hey -- no, no, no, no. You can't -- you can't take that.

Kendall: Oh, these are incredible. We are golden. I love it.

Greenlee: I assume you're using the royal "we"?

Kendall: You're back.

Greenlee: Did you really think you could get rid of me?

Kendall: You quit. You -- you marched in here and pitched a fit. You did everything but spit in Caseyís face.

Greenlee: I was bereft. I felt cornered. Now I'm back.

Kendall: It's not that easy.

Greenlee: Say goodbye to the glamorous life, Kendall. I'm putting you back into the gutter where you belong.

Marian: Mia and Adam? They're not, darling. I mean, they couldn't be.

Liza: Mother, you know what? I should've really kept a diary of all the times I saw them together, same place, same time.

Marian: Probably a coincidence, Liza.

Liza: Mother, please. Every time I would see them, they were secretive and had their heads together whispering.

Marian: But that doesn't mean they're having an affair.

Liza: They were nervous and embarrassed when I caught them.

Marian: Liza, Mia is dating Jake.

Liza: Adam would never date my sister without an appropriate cover.

Marian: Well, I can't believe --

Liza: What, that he would cheat on me?

Marian: No, of course I believe that, but not with Mia. I -- I can't.

Liza: They were in New York together, both of them in Manhattan. Same hotel, different rooms -- as if that fooled anyone.

Adam: You're sure?

 ***********************************************

Winifred: Yes, Sir, I checked each tin of caviar. There's the ship with the little orange sails and the Russian lettering underneath?

Adam: Yeah, good. Good work. You can tell them to serve it.

Winifred: Yes.

Adam: Well. Amazing, isn't it? Everything is -- perfect.

Liza: Mother and I were just saying the same thing.

Adam: Yes. Well, I have one more meeting with the orchestra's rep, and then I'll be all yours. Excuse me.

Liza: Don't you dare let on anything to him because I have a plan. After this party, Adam is not going to know what hit him.

Marian: Liza, don't do anything we're all going to regret.

Liza: Mother, while Adam is playing benevolent philanthropist with Mia, I'm taking Colby to London and I'm filing for a divorce.

Marian: Oh, Liza --

Liza: Mother -- Colby has got to be removed from the fallout zone.

Marian: I was hoping it wouldn't come to this --

Liza: Mother, Adam is the one that packed the bomb and he lit the fuse. It's just that the explosion is going to be far bigger than he ever imagined.

Jake: Hmm. Well, you know what? The more I think about it, the more I like it.

Mia: What? The idea of double-dating with Frank and Simone?

Jake: Mm-hmm. Because I like doing everything with you. I can't even stop thinking about what an incredible family you and I could create.

Mia: You make me feel very capable.

Jake: You've always been that.

Mia: I'm different now. I'm different because of you.

Jake: Thanks. You know, I could say the same.

Mia: Oh, I wish we could stay like this all night.

Jake: Yeah, yeah. I think the cleaning crew would have a field day with that. We'd never hear the end of it.

Mia: Yeah, and Liza would never forgive me. I promised I'd help her gear up for the costume gala tonight.

Jake: What? What are you -- it's early yet.

Mia: Yeah, I know, but I have to get ready.

Jake: You know what? If you look any better than what you do right now, I can't be responsible for what I might do.

Mia: Well -- oh, hold that thought. You know what? I think I left my keys in my Jacket. I guess I won't be needing this.

Jake: I think you ought to hang on to that. You never know when it might come in handy. So -- ahem -- how will I recognize you tonight?

Mia: Well, if we're meant to be, you'll recognize me immediately.

Jake: Well, you're not even going to give me a hint? What color dress are you wearing?

Mia: Nope, no hints. I want to surprise you.

Jake: Ha. I think you're the one who's going to be in for the big surprise.

Simone: What is wrong with you?

Frank: I'm sorry. I didn't hurt you, did I?

Simone: I was taking a message.

Frank: About a patient?

Simone: Yeah.

Frank: Hold on, Brice. Look, he cannot tell you anything about a patient. That is completely unethical.

Simone: You know what? I'll be in the kitchen so you can have your so-ethical conversation.

Frank: You idiot. That's his sister.

Brice: What, Anthony McMillan?

Frank: Yes.

Brice: Whoa. You live with that chick?

Frank: No, man, we live in the same house. It's -- it's like a dormitory or --

Brice: Well, she sounds pretty. Sexy voice.

Frank: You got the information for me?

Brice: No Anthony McMillan was brought in as an O.D., not that whole year.

Frank: Are you sure?

Brice: Positivo. St. Vincent's hospital records don't list any Anthony McMillan.

Frank: Yes. Oh, my God. Then Anthonyís not the guy that I filmed O.D.'ing.

Brice: Frankie, you still there?

Frank: Yeah, yeah, man. I'm here, I'm here.

Brice: All right. You owe me sushi.

Frank: Oh! Oh, I'm good for it. I'm good for it. Thanks, brother. Simone?

Simone: You know, will you quit yelling at me? You know, I don't want any more --

Frank: I'm sorry. Really sorry.

Kendall: Would you just chill out? I'm glad you're here.

Greenlee: That is so unbelievably lame.

Kendall: You don't understand what's been going on.

Greenlee: Oh, sure, I do. You've been coasting on my talent. This is my campaign.

Kendall: I have been saving your job.

Greenlee: You've been saving your skin.

Kendall: I was just keeping the office warm until you were ready to come back.

Greenlee: You know, when did this palace coup occur to you? At Leoís memorial service?

Kendall: I'm not surprised you would think that --

Greenlee: Was your presence, your phony tears, supposed to throw me off?

Kendall: No. No -- Greenlee, listen. If I don't make it -- if I don't make it to this meeting, neither of us will have a job with Giovanna cosmetics ever again.

Greenlee: Run along, Kendall, and don't come back.

Kendall: I'll bring Casey in here, and she'll back me up.

Greenlee: Hmm.

Greenlee: They are not taking this from me, too.

Marian: Liza, you and Adam fighting over Colby is precisely what we were trying to avoid.

Liza: Well, Adam shouldn't have taken my sister into his bed.

Marian: Well, I can't believe that still. I mean, Mia desperately wanted you and Adam to get back together for Colbyís sake. We all discussed it.

Liza: And what was the solution that you and Mia and Stuart came up with -- Adam and I sleep in separate wings. Gee, Mother, whose idea was that?

Marian: I honestly can't recall.

Liza: Right, I bet you it was Mia, after Adam whispered into her ear.

Marian: How could she be so sweet to our faces while she's carrying on with Adam?

Liza: Come on, Mother. You've had to do that once or twice in your lifetime. Can't you remember?

Marian: Well, of course I have, but you don't have to rub my face in it.

Liza: No, mother, I pulled the two-face routine myself. You feel better?

Marian: No, I donít. I just hate thinking of Mia -- Liza, I am so sorry. Being betrayed by your -- your husband and your sister, it's just too horrible. I'm so sorry.

Mia: Oh. I'm sorry if I'm interrupting. I just -- I thought I could help you get ready for the party.

Liza: Oh, Adam has everything under control.

Marian: Yes. I'm sure you know all about that, don't you, Mia? I'll go up and check on Colby, okay?

Mia: Have I done something wrong?

Liza: What an odd thing to say.

Mia: It's just you've been so generous, you know? It doesn't stop. You even got me my costume for the party.

Liza: Well, you're my sister. How can I deny you anything?

Mia: You know, everything you've done -- you've done for me -- you took me in, you share everything with me. How can I ever repay you?

Liza: Honestly, really, do you have to continue? I mean, how can you keep going like this?

Simone: Wait, wait. You know what? Am I, like, a psych project for you? You know, I'm not into kinky head trips and I -- you know, your little -- your little schizo act -- you know, it was kind of scary.

Frank: I'm sorry about the phone call. I'm sorry about freaking out.

Simone: Okay, okay. So, what about last night? You know, I -- I went to all this trouble to have a romantic evening with you, take advantage of people not here, and then you -- you, what, you get all zombie on me and --

Frank: I'm just -- I'm freaked about this patient, you know, and I can't really get into details, Simone.

Simone: Right, because you're an ethical guy.

Frank: I thought that I did something -- or that I didn't do something -- that might've made him worse.

Simone: Did you?

Frank: No. So now I can relax and we can get back to normal.

Simone: Well, next time, why don't you just explain? You know, just in broad strokes. You don't have to compromise your professionalism. Okay?

Frank: I'll be more open, I promise.

Simone: Because I really -- I really let you in. I don't tell very many people about my life, and I really need it to be mutual.

Frank: It will.

Simone: You promise?

Frank: I promise. I just wish that we could get back to where we were -- or where we should've been.

Simone: Yeah, I bet you do.

[Simone giggles]

Simone: Are you going to try?

Frank: Yeah. But I don't like going anywhere alone.

Simone: Ah, ah, ah -- shoes.

Frank: Hi.

Simone: Hi.

Casey: Kendall, there is a full conference room waiting for us.

Kendall: Oh, well, first we'll grab Greenlee, and then we'll see what the VPs thought of our new campaign.

Greenlee: Whose campaign?

Kendall: What are you doing?

Greenlee: Putting the truth back in advertising.

Casey: No. No, you didn't.

Greenlee: You like it?

Casey: Olin Jousley and Kim Lanier are waiting for these.

Greenlee: For your information, this is stolen property.

Casey: This is company property, Greenlee, and you have ruined it.

Greenlee: Kendall stole this campaign from me. These were my ideas.

Kendall: You idiot. I gave you the credit for that.

Greenlee: Of course you did.

Casey: I don't need this today. Get out! Get out while I try to salvage this!

Greenlee: This is my office.

Casey: Not anymore.

Greenlee: That quitting thing -- that was just a reaction to Kendallís plot against me. I wasn't thinking.

Casey: Greenlee, I stood by you. Is this how you repay me?

Greenlee: These are just the basics of my ideas. I have better ones, and I can show you, starting now.

Casey: It is too late.

Greenlee: I want to work. I love Giovanna.

Casey: Well, you have a strange way of showing it.

Greenlee: I haven't been myself lately, but --

Casey: Greenlee, look. I sympathize with your loss. Really, I do. But your unstable behavior started when you turned the bridal expo into a wrestling match.

Greenlee: That wasn't my fault.

Kendall: Greenlee loves this company. She's -- she's devoted to Giovanna.

Casey: We cannot afford this kind of love.

Kendall: Have a heart, okay? All right, all right, so Greenlee's whacked out. Who wouldn't be? But if you toss her out now, she could slap you with wrongful termination.

Greenlee: Of course I could.

Casey: Ladies, let me clarify this for you. Greenlee, you quit. And you, Kendall, are fired. Quit. Fired.

Kendall: You can't fire me because Greenlee's whacked out.

Casey: You were responsible for these ad comps. You left them with an extremely angry and hostile ex-employee. And then when she -- when she wrecks them, you defend her?

Greenlee: Wasn't much of a defense.

Kendall: It was just a reflex. I thought Giovanna valued loyalty.

Casey: Not when it's so drastically misplaced. Thanks to you, my career is swirling down the drain.

Kendall: Look, Casey, please, I'm begging you. Please, just give me another chance. It took me forever to establish myself in this town.

Casey: Look, this is a disaster. Somebody has to take responsibility.

Greenlee: She means take the fall.

Kendall: It sure isn't going to be you.

Casey: Your lousy judgment is not going to cost me my job. I want you both out of this office and off company property within the hour. Get back to work!

Greenlee and Kendall: This is all your fault.

Mia: How can I keep what up?

Liza: This attitude of graciousness and all this, it's -- it's embarrassing. I've done nothing for you that you wouldn't do for me.

Mia: Okay. I -- I just hope that one day I can repay you, that's all.

Liza: Oh, I'm sure we'll balance out the book someday. The education that you give me is invaluable.

Mia: I'm teaching you something?

Liza: Yes. All that you balance -- it's inspiring.

Mia: Yeah. I -- I guess I do have a lot going on right now. I wish I could handle some of it better, but --

Liza: Anything I can help you with?

Mia: I -- I wish -- I can't really get into it with you right now.

Liza: Of course not.

Adam: Ah, Mia, finally. I need a woman's advice.

Mia: Adam --

Liza: Spoken like an old married man.

Adam: You know what I mean.

Liza: Very well.

Adam: Liza, you've been busy with all sorts of details. I didn't want to distract you.

Liza: My considerate husband.

Mia: You know, I can stay here. I can help you out if you need.

Liza: Oh, no, no. We all know Adam very well. He becomes insufferable when he doesn't get exactly what he wants.

Marian: I honestly don't know how you can stand this.

Liza: I canít. I want to strangle her.

Simone: I could stay like this forever.

Frank: Yeah, you think Myrtle will let us have trays?

Simone: I think even if she does, we still have an employment issue.

Frank: Right. Yeah. Well -- we could be mattress testers in a nudist colony.

Simone: Oh, I like it. Yeah, we could save a lot of money on clothes.

[Frank laughs]

Simone: Clothes -- our costumes. Oh, dagnabit. You know what? I was downstairs looking for a receipt when your friend called.

Frank: What do you need a receipt for?

Simone: Well, I was going to go pick them up.

Frank: Well -- all right. Well, why don't I -- why don't I call and I can see how late they're open to.

Simone: Oh, good. Good.

Frank: Or, on second thought, we can just stay here and let the rest of the town play dress up. That would be really good --

Simone: No, no, no, no, no. My dress is so beautiful, and the back -- oh --

Frank: Wear it for me here. Model it for me privately. How about that?

Simone: Will you put on your costume?

Frank: Hell, no.

Simone: Well, then, we're going. It's going to be fun. Great music. Food. Please?

Frank: Okay, okay, okay. I'll make the call. I'll make the call. We'll see what time they're open, and you just stay here and work on being loved and feeling secure.

Simone: Okay.

Frank: You can also try to work on laughing at me when you see me in Venetian drag tonight, okay?

[Simone laughs]

[Doorbell rings]

Frank: Yeah? Dr. McMillan. Come in.

Zeke: Thought I might catch my daughter.

Simone: Will you come back to bed?

Frank: Simone was just --

Simone: I found the receipt. It's on --

Zeke: I know what Simone was just.

Frank: I'm sorry. This is kind of awkward.

Simone: Daddy, I --

Zeke: I am not interested in his apologies or your excuses.

Simone: Dad, I am an adult and I make my own decisions. And I've made some really good ones lately, and I don't -- I don't need you to undermine them.

Zeke: I did not come here to undermine anything. I just felt that we should spend this evening together.

Simone: Oh -- oh -- oh, I'm sorry. I -- I forgot.

Zeke: I know you had more pressing things on your mind --

Simone: No, no --

Zeke: Listen, I'm sorry that I interrupted.

Simone: It's not like that, Dad. Oh --

Frank: What -- what was so important about tonight?

Simone: Today is Anthonyís birthday.

Frank: Oh, my God. You want to go after him?

Simone: Dressed like this? Even if I changed and went after him, it's pointless.

Frank: Hey -- Simone, he's your father. He loves you.

Simone: I have let him down on his expectations of me more than Anthony has. We've -- we've both embarrassed him.

Frank: Anthony had a drug problem. He needed treatment.

Simone: You know, when Anthony ODíd, my dad covered it up. That's how humiliated he was about it. No son of Zeke McMillan is going to have a drug problem.

Frank: He covered it up how?

Simone: He traded on his name and reputation so Anthonyís hospital records would be removed.

Mia: Well, you have saved my life.

Adam: With the retainer I pay them, my attorneys are your attorneys.

Mia: You know, since our trip to New York, I feel so much more secure about William and the adoption.

Adam: Well, if the baby's father challenges it, Barry and his boys will blow him right out of the water.

Mia: What can I do for you in return, hmm?

Adam: Nothing.

Mia: Oh, come on. There's got to be something.

Adam: You just take good care of your son.

Mia: Well, thanks to you, I can.

Adam: Being a good parent is the most important thing in this world. Unfortunately, it took me too long to finally discover that.

Mia: How are things between you and Liza?

Adam: Oh -- hopeless.

Mia: You know, I was thinking, maybe I could talk to her for you, you know?

Adam: You'd be wasting your breath, Mia.

Mia: All right. Well, then, what if I watched Colby for a couple days and you guys could just go and just get away from it all, you know?

Adam: We'd take it all with us. No, believe me, being alone with me is the last thing liza wants.

Mia: Oh. I wouldn't be so sure about that.

Adam: No, trust me. Our marriage is on its dying gasp. It's definitely D.N.R.

Mia: "Do not resuscitate."

Adam: Yeah. Afraid so. She's very lucky to have a sister like you. But I'm sure she knows that.

Mia: Well, I'm lucky to have Liza -- and you.

Adam: Yeah.

Adam: Yeah, Barry? Barry, get ready. Liza's ready to pull something at any minute now. What's changed is Tad Martin knows that -- that I've been dallying, and if he tells Liza -- when he tells Liza, she's going to go off like a rocket. Make sure we can strike back fast.

Jake: I am telling you, you and Mom should be there for this. This is going to be some event. Why is that? What do I sound like? Well, you're right about that. There might just be some good news coming about. All right, I'll tell you what -- I will fill you in and catch you up as soon as you get back, okay? Give Mom a kiss for me. Okay. All right, bye-bye.

Stuart: Hi.

Jake: Hey, Stuart. How you doing?

Stuart: Hi. That's a pretty little box.

Jake: Yeah. Yeah, it is, isn't it?

Stuart: Yeah. You know -- you know what that looks like to me?

Jake: What's that?

Stuart: A ring box.

Jake: Well, you're right about that, Stuart. You're right.

Stuart: Uh -- can I see it?

Jake: Sure.

Stuart: Oh. Oh, that -- that looks like the kind of a ring going to make some girl real happy.

Jake: Well, that's exactly what I'm counting on, Stuart.

***********************************************

Kendall: Let go.

Greenlee: This has been on my desk since I first reported to work.

Kendall: So what? It's not yours.

Greenlee: What, you left it here in some previous life?

Kendall: You're such a hypocrite.

Greenlee: This has sentimental value, okay? Instead of stealing silver objects, why don't you go down to one of your boy toys in shipping and have them forklift a crate of cosmetics into your trunk?

Kendall: I am not listening to this.

Greenlee: Hmm! Unless you can get spackle on credit at Dillardís hardware, you better stock up on Giovannaís miracle base.

Kendall: Whoever said that "no good deed goes unpunished" was right. Why the hell couldn't you just stay away?

Greenlee: Trey helped me get back into life.

Kendall: What, by wrecking mine? Trey?

Greenlee: Yeah. Your own brother is against you. Doesn't that tell you something?

Kendall: Yeah, that I have to kill him later. Oh, please.

Greenlee: This place is toxic. They should be someplace where they'll be admired.

Kendall: Well, at least there's one upside to this travesty. We'll never have to work together again.

Greenlee: Thank God -- not that you actually worked.

Kendall: You want to wear those flowers? Greenlee, wait. Would you -- wait for me -- Greenlee -- Greenlee, come on. Hey!

Simone: Anthony was always taking the heat for me.

Frank: Sounds like a great guy.

Simone: Yeah. Yeah, he was.

Frank: I never asked you -- you got a picture of him?

Simone: Yeah.

Frank: Yeah? All right.

Simone: With pleasure.

Simone: Anthony, Frank. Frank, Anthony. Isn't he awesome?

Woman's voice: Can't you do something? Breathe, breathe!

Man: Open your eyes. Open your eyes! Come on! Come on!

Frank: Oh, my God.

Simone: I know. Isn't it such a tragedy?

Stuart: Are you going to -- are you going to propose to Mia?

Jake: Why? Do you have someone else you want to fix me up with?

Stuart: Oh, no.

Jake: No, I'm kidding. I'm kidding, Stuart. You know that Mia and I are together, right?

Stuart: Well, yeah, I know, I know. She's really very private about that kind of thing, and, well, you were a little shaky there for a while.

Jake: Yeah, well, you're right about that, but now we're on solid ground.

Stuart: Oh, that's great. I love weddings! I love them! I love them. I can't wait to tell Marian. Maybe -- maybe Mia would -- who would she like to give her away --

Jake: No, shh, shh, shh.

Stuart: We'll have a small wedding --

Jake: Shh, shh, shh, shh.

Stuart: Something at the house --

Jake: No, no, no, no. Slow down, slow down.

Stuart: Did you -- did you set the date yet?

Jake: But -- well, she has to say yes first.

Stuart: Oh, of course she's going to say yes.

Jake: Well --

Stuart: And then -- then I can tell Marian and we can -- we can set the date. And then we'll decide -- and Adam -- Adam and I and Marian --

Jake: Stuart, Stuart, Stuart --

Stuart: What?

Jake: We have to just -- we're going to discuss all of that, all right? But in the meantime, you can't tell anyone.

Stuart: Not even Marian?

Jake: Not even.

Stuart: Oh, but Marianís my soul mate, and she can always tell if I'm hiding a wedding --

Jake: All right, all right. Right, yeah. I'll tell you what. I'm going to go to the party, and I'm going to propose to Mia, and then --

Stuart: And then -- and then you can set the date!

Jake: Then we're going to celebrate.

Stuart: Celebrate, yes, at the party -- propose at the party. That's great!

Jake: That's right.

Stuart: This isn't going to be just your everyday, old, run-of-the-mill --

Jake: Are you kidding?

Stuart: Venetian ball.

Jake: This is going to be the kind of party Mia and I are going to be telling our grandkids about.

Stuart: Oh!

Jake: Thank you, Stuart.

Stuart: Oh.

Mia: So I just almost got run over by two guys wielding a gondola.

Adam: Well, what's Venice without a gondola or two?

Mia: I'm surprised you didn't have them dig canals in the gardens.

Adam: Oh, we didn't have time.

Mia: Oh, but you have thought of everything.

Adam: Well, yeah.

Liza: Adam is nothing if not thorough.

Mia: Colby! Are you so excited?

Colby: I got the most beautiful costume.

Liza: Hmm.

Colby: Mommy said so.

Liza: Yes, I did.

Adam: And so does Daddy say so. I will see you lovely ladies later. That's an alliteration.

Colby: What?

Liza: Alliteration is a bunch of words that all start with the same letter. Sometimes I like to call them "daddies dumb diatribes."

Mia: I can't wait to see how everybody's dressed, you know? The last time I went to a costume party, we all dressed up like we were going to a disco. This is going to be much more glamorous than that.

Colby: Will you help me get ready?

Liza: Ooh.

Mia: Sure. You know what I did? I brought that pretty hair ribbon that you like. It's over in my purse. So, what's going on with you and Adam?

Liza: Nothing a little trust wouldn't fix.

Colby: What's this for, Aunt Mia?

Mia: Oh -- um -- this is something that only grownups have to worry about.

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

Man: Come on, baby, light my fire.

Greenlee: How about I put it out.

Tad: I shall be the envy of every gentleman in the room.

Brooke: No, you wonít. I'm not going.

Adam: Where are you going with Colbyís suitcase?
