>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Greenlee: With your help, I'm going to put Erica out of business.

Laurie: It's too much, J.R. I can't accept it.

J.R.: Why not?

Laurie: You can't buy your friends.

Marian: Liza didn't mean to push Mia. It was just a terrible, terrible accident.

Stuart: Why didn't Liza say so?

Jake: We're doing everything we can here. We're counting her life in hours.

J.R.: I need to ask you something.

Kendall: And you had to skip school to do it?

J.R.: This can't wait.

Kendall: Well, if you're looking for the answers to the math quiz, you've come to the wrong place.

J.R.: If a guy -- if a guy you liked gave you this, would you accept it?

Kendall: I would love it. Thank you. How did you know I wanted one of these?

J.R.: Uh -- no, I didn't -- I didn't --

Kendall: This is so cool. This is great. Did you already put music on it?

J.R.: Yeah, I did, but --

Kendall: Excellent. This is so cool.

J.R.: Um -- I guess you got to be sophisticated to appreciate a gift like that.

Kendall: Or poor. I'd have to baby-sit Petey Cortlandt a zillion times to afford one of these. I've got to try it out. What -- what's this?

J.R.: Oh, that's nothing. Let me -- let me fix that.

Kendall: No, no, no, what is this? "Laurie's playlist"?

[bell rings]

Girl: I don't understand tonight's homework.

Boy: Not at all.

Girl: I'm just glad it's finally over.

Second girl: We should not have stayed out so late last night. I'm way too tired.

Laurie: What do you want?

Man: I asked around. You never told me your hotshot boyfriend is Adam Chandler's little boy.

Laurie: You're spying on me?

Man: I'm looking out for you.

Laurie: Well, donít. How many times do I have to tell you to leave me alone?

Tad: Hey. Don't let me disturb you.

Jake: It's all right. I ran out of words a while ago.

Tad: I talked to Pop. He -- he mentioned something about Mia having a postoperative infection?

Jake: She's not responding to the antibiotics.

Tad: Yet. You just, you know, give her a little time. She's a fighter. She's going to beat this.

Jake: Tad --

Tad: No, I mean it. I know it's a horrible clichť, but doesn't mean it's not the truth. I mean, you told me yourself. She likes to box, right?

Jake: This isn't a joke, Tad. She's not fighting it.

Tad: What -- no -- that's not what I meant.

Jake: No. No, no, she's -- I'm losing her. I'm losing her, and -- and there's nothing that I can do about it.

Mia: It hurts.

Liza: I'm so sorry, Mia.

Stuart: Ahem.

Liza: Stuart.

Stuart: How's Mia doing?

Liza: She has a fever. It's really high.

Stuart: Oh. Could I ask you something?

Liza: Sure. What is it?

Stuart: Not in front of Mia. Um -- could -- no.

Liza: Stuart, she can't hear us. And even if she could, it wouldn't make any difference to her.

Stuart: Oh, no, you're wrong. It'd make a big difference.


Trey: You think you can put Erica Kane out of business?

[Greenlee laughs]

Greenlee: I am going to shut down Erica and her simpering, patronizing daughter.

Trey: How?

Greenlee: Simple -- I'm going to start my own cosmetics empire, one that'll make Enchantment seem like a dime store reject. And this is where I'm going to begin.

Trey: Greystone Pharmaceuticals?

Greenlee: Yeah, they closed two weeks ago. And now the building is up for sale with offices and factory space. It's the perfect place to launch my new line.

Trey: I've never seen someone so pumped up about a real estate ad.

Greenlee: This isn't just an ad. This is a sign pointing towards my future! It's like the universe has shifted and something is finally going my way. And I didn't even have to look for that. It just landed right in my lap.

Trey: What have I told you all along? You're irresistible. The universe has finally figured it out.

Greenlee: What do you think you're doing?

Trey: I'm -- Iím sorry --

Greenlee: You're not him.

Trey: I know.

Greenlee: No matter how hard you try, you'll never fill Leoís shoes.

Trey: I know. I'm -- Iím sorry. I just -- I just got caught up in your plan -- I'll leave if you want me to.

Greenlee: No. No. No, no, no. I need you to do this for me. I need you to go out and find out who owns the Greystone building and convince them to sell it to me -- today.

Trey: Today?

Greenlee: Yeah, I told you this was urgent.

Trey: Yeah, but what's the rush?

Greenlee: I want to own that building before anyone else realizes it's on the market. If you pull this off, I can swing a permanent position for you on my team.

Trey: What, so this is like an audition?

Greenlee: Call it what you like. Are you up for it or not?

Trey: Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. Of course. Yes.

J.R.: I didn't come here to -- I didn't come here to give it to you. I mean, it's great that you like it and all, and you can have it. But I just wanted to know --

Kendall: If a gift like this was out of line. Yeah, I get it. Here.

J.R.: No, you can keep it. I already have one.

Kendall: And Laurie doesn't want this one?

J.R.: Nope. She says I was trying to buy her, which is so not true.

Kendall: Wait a minute. Is this the girl that you were telling me about yesterday, the one who keeps smacking you down?

J.R.: Yeah.

Kendall: And you still blew 500 bucks for an mp3 player?

J.R.: I was trying to show her how I feel about her, and -- and she acts like spending money on her is some kind of crime.

Kendall: Man, you must have it really bad for this chick.

[J.R. sighs]

J.R.: I do, and I thought she was into me, too. But, like, she's the one who wanted me to call her all the time. And now if I even try to kiss her, she shoots me this death ray. I mean, what does she want from me?

Kendall: Beats me. I mean, if a guy was willing to shell out big bucks for me, I wouldn't be kicking him out of my -- I wouldn't be pushing him away.

J.R.: Unless he was the wrong guy.

Kendall: What do you mean?

J.R.: Maybe Laurieís into someone else.

Man: So you don't want Adam Chandler Jr. knowing about me?

Laurie: Why can't you just stay away from me?

Man: I don't see how that's possible.

Laurie: You're doing this on purpose.

Man: I want what's best for you, and that isn't some little tycoon in training.

Laurie: Forget about him.

Man: No, you forget about him. I saw the way he upset you yesterday. I won't let him bother you again.

Laurie: You're the only one who's allowed to do that, right?

Man: You better watch what you say to me, little lady, or you're going to regret it.

Laurie: I'm sorry. It's just this is hard enough.

Man: You used to think I could solve all your problems, remember?

Laurie: Yeah. Well, obviously, I was wrong.

Liza: Stuart, what is all this about?

Stuart: I wanted to ask you something about Mia. Marian told me that you --

Marian: I told him that he had to ask you first. He wants to take Colby to the children's museum.

Liza: Oh. Well, Stuart, that would be fine. I don't know why you would think that would bother Mia.

Marian: Well, Mia always used to take Colby, and he doesn't want to upset her, you know, because she couldn't go with them this time.

Liza: I'm not sure if Mia will ever be able to go with her again, Stuart.

Stuart: What do you mean?

Marian: She's not worse, is she, Liza?

Liza: The doctors say she has a really terrible infection and the antibiotics aren't working. The doctors said that she -- she could --

Stuart: You don't mean that Mia could die?

Marian: Oh, Stuart, don't even say that. Please.

Liza: Stuart, just pray. If God will listen to anyone, he'll listen to you.

Stuart: But you pray, too. God listens to everyone.

Liza: I don't know. I've spent the last 24 hours doing whatever I could and begging for something I don't deserve. If she doesn't make it, I don't think I'll ever be able to forgive myself.

Stuart: Why -- why did you keep interrupting me? I wanted to ask Liza about Mia's fall.

Marian: Stuart, I told you what happened in confidence. I thought I could trust you.

Stuart: Well, of course you can trust me.

Marian: Well, then, please. Please, I am begging you, don't hurt my daughter. Just please leave this alone.

Jake: The woman that I love, the woman I want to marry, spend the rest of my life with -- all I can do is just stand there and watch her --

Tad: Donít. Don't even say it.

Jake: You know, I really wanted to slow it down with her. I wanted to just not rush into things, you know, about this whole marriage. And now time is the one thing that we don't have.

Tad: Even if that's true, you have something that I would've killed for. You have another day, even another hour, and that's something I never got with Dixie. Mia's here, here and now. And if I were you, I wouldn't be wasting time sitting there. I'd go to her. I'd spend every minute you can possibly spend with her because every minute you have together is another chance to show her how you feel. And, trust me, that's something you'd kill for when there really is nothing more you can do.

Jake: You're right.

Tad: It happens every once in a while. Don't hug me. You go hug her.

Jake: Thanks.

Tad: Tell her you love her.

Kendall: I mean, look at you. Who can compare with you? I mean, you're smart, you're cute, you're rich, and you're into her. What more could a girl want?

J.R.: She doesn't want me to be rich. She says I don't live in the real world.

Kendall: Oh. Ok. All right. I get it now. Listen, listen, J.R. if a girl likes a guy, she wants him to show it, and not just by whipping out his daddy's credit card. Your girlfriend probably thinks it's too easy for you to buy her something. You need to make more of an effort. You know, you got to work for it a little.

J.R.: And I tried to do something like that. I -- I just didn't think it was enough for her.

Kendall: It'll be enough because you're enough. Believe that, will you?

J.R.: I don't know.

Kendall: Trust me, trust me. I bet Laurie feels the exact same way.

J.R.: You think?

Kendall: Yeah, I do. And, besides, you're making me late for my date.

J.R.: Your date?

Kendall: Yes, I do have a date for lunch with my brother.

J.R.: Oh. Ok, well -- Kendall, I -- you're --

Kendall: Yes, yes, I'm great. I know. I'm fabulous. Now, go. Go so I can get ready.

J.R.: Ok. Thank you.

Kendall: You're welcome. And slow down, take it slow.

[door closes]

[Kendall sighs]

Kendall: Ahem. I hope lunch is on Trey today.

Kendall: Oh. J.R. -- J.R., You left your thing! You -- well, he did say I could keep it. It's mine now.

Trey: Don't worry, Greenlee. Not only am I going to find the person that owns that building and convince them to sell, Iíll draw up the contracts myself for free.

Greenlee: I -- I don't want them for free. I'll pay you.

Trey: Wait until the company's in the black. This building's going to cost you.

[door closes]

Greenlee: Hi, Jim, it's Greenlee Smythe Dupres. Hi. I need to liquidate a few holdings. I'm about to make a big purchase. Well, yeah, of course I know the market is down, but this can't wait. That far? How much do I have left? What? You are supposed to be managing my money, not losing it!

Greenlee: Hi, it's me. I need your help right away.

Petey: Another Roy Rogers, my good man.

Kendall: Is everybody playing hooky today?

Petey: I'm on my lunch break.

Kendall: There's a cafeteria in your school.

Petey: The food's better here.

Kendall: Right. Hey, Petey, haven't you always wanted one of these?

Petey: You giving it to me?

Kendall: Dream on, little man. How much you give me for it?

Petey: Isn't my father paying you enough?

Kendall: Not nearly enough to put up with you. So, you want it or not?

Petey: I'll give you 50 bucks for it.

Kendall: 50 bucks? No. This is brand-new. This is brand-new. Somebody just gave this to me.

Petey: Someone with money, like J.R. Chandler.

Kendall: It's none of your business. So this thing is worth at least 300.

Petey: 300? Forget it. My dad already got me one.

Kendall: Why didn't you say so --

Man: Kendall?

Kendall: You little runt?

Man: Kendall Hart. I thought that was you. I thought you were working at Giovanna.

Kendall: No, that's old news, Boyd. I've moved on.

Boyd: Well, whatever you're doing agrees with you. Wow, you look fabulous.

Kendall: Thank you. I miss you, Boyd. How are things at Enchantment?

Boyd: Hectic. You know, Ms. Kane keeps us lab nerds pretty busy.

Kendall: Oh, you're not a nerd. You're a genius. Are you still working on that new formula?

Boyd: Almost done. And wait till you try it. It's going to be amazing.

Kendall: What does Erica think? Does she know it's revolutionary?

Boyd: I haven't shown it to Ms. Kane yet. I want to perfect it first.

Kendall: Well, I hope she appreciates you, Boyd. You're a visionary.

Boyd: Hey, I try. So how are you? I miss you hanging out with us lab rats.

Kendall: Well, I've got a few things going on here. I'm kind of swamped with other things.

Petey: Kendall, going to baby-sit me tonight?

Kendall: I'm not going to go near you ever again if you don't stop bugging me, you little runt.

Boyd: Tell me you're not babysitting for a living.

Kendall: Actually, I have a little nanny business on the side. It keeps me open to try other things.

Boyd: Uh-huh. I can't believe some other company hasn't snatched you up by now. I mean, with your sense of style, your eye for color -- hey, you should have your own product line.

Kendall: You're just saying that, Boyd, because I adore your work.

Boyd: What can I say? I think you have great taste, Kendall. And I hate to see it go to waste. Come on, you are way too talented to spend your life taking orders from rugrats.

Joni: How are things going with J.R.?

Laurie: I don't know what his deal is. He keeps thinking he can buy me or bribe me or something.

Joni: Buy you how?

Laurie: The night of the party, he offered me cash to ditch my shift. And this morning he tried to give one of those computer thingies for downloading music, and they cost a fortune.

Joni: You're kidding. Did you take it?

Laurie: No way! I don't want his money. I want a boyfriend who calls me when he's supposed to and walks me to class and picks me up in some beat-up second-hand car, not his daddy's limo. That's why I made him take the stupid thing back.

Joni: Wow, you have guts. Me, I'd be listening to music right now.

Laurie: No, you wouldn't. Your parents wouldn't let you.

Joni: Too true. Ew. There's that new janitor. Watch out for him. I think he has a thing for you.

Laurie: What do you want now?

Man: You didn't tell me Richie Rich gave you a computer.

Laurie: Not a computer. It's just -- forget it. I didn't take it, not that it's any of your business.

Man: But, listen, you did the right thing.

Laurie: I didn't give it back because of you, if that's what you think.

Man: Wait -- can we talk?

Laurie: Leave me alone!

Man: Honey, come on. Why do you have to be this way?

J.R.: You heard her! What's your problem, man? Just leave her alone!

Liza: Mia, Jake is here with you, and I'll come back in a little while.

Jake: My Mia. Can you hear me? I want to say something to you. I know Iíve said it before, but I love you. It's that simple. I love you and I need you. And I need you to come back to me. Please, Mia.

Mia: I love you, too.

Jake: Hey. You're awake.

Mia: Yeah. I was dreaming about you.

Jake: That's good. Because I'm going to ask you for a really, really big favor.

Mia: You do?

Jake: You can't say no -- not until you hear what it is, and not even then.

Mia: What is it?

Jake: Will you marry me tonight? 

J.R.: She said back off.

Man: You have any idea who you're talking to?

J.R.: Yeah, you're the new custodian. That gives you no right to hassle Laurie.

Man: No right, huh?

J.R.: Just lay off her, or Iíll report you. Man, that guy is creepy. We should report him anyway.

Laurie: No.

J.R.: Why not? He's some kind of friend of yours?

Laurie: J.R., think about it. You walk into the principal's office, he's just going to ask why you blew off school today.

J.R.: Oh, yeah, right.

Laurie: Where were you all day?

J.R.: I was thinking about what you said about the gift I gave you, and I wasn't trying -- I wasn't trying to buy you, I swear.

Laurie: Forget it.

J.R.: No, I can't forget it. I want to make things right between us. So I -- I made you this last weekend.

Laurie: A C.D.?

J.R.: It's got all your favorite songs. But I just -- I didn't -- I didn't think it was enough to show you how I felt about you, and that's when I went out and bought the mp3 player.

Laurie: This is way better.

J.R.: Yeah? You like it?

Laurie: Yeah. I do, a lot. But I can't accept it.

J.R.: Why not?

Laurie: It wouldn't be right.

J.R.: I -- um -- what -- what's wrong with a guy giving his girlfriend a C.D. Of her favorite music?

Laurie: I'm sorry, J.R. I can't be your girlfriend.

J.R.: What? What -- wait. Why? Because I -- because I bought you an expensive gift?

Laurie: No.

J.R.: Then -- there's something going on here, isn't there? Come on, Laurie, tell me why. Why don't you want to go out with me anymore?

Boyd: That's my lunch hour. I got to head back. It was really nice seeing you, Kendall.

Kendall: Oh, you, too, Boyd. You, too. Take care.

Boyd: I will.

Kendall: Keep up the good work.

Boyd: Ok. Bye.

Kendall: Bye. It's too bad it's wasted on Erica.

Trey: What's wasted on Erica?

Kendall: Where the hell have you been? I'm starving.

Trey: I'm sorry. Something came up. I'm not going to be able to join you for lunch.

Kendall: What, now you're bagging on me?

Trey: I'm sorry, but this is big. This is major.

Kendall: What's more important that your own sister?

Trey: Actually, something you could've been a part of if you weren't so stubborn.

Kendall: What are you talking about?

Trey: Greenlee. Though you did say you'd rather die than work with her, right?

Kendall: True. So?

Trey: So while you're stuck in neutral, she is moving full speed ahead. I tell you what -- she is going to set this world on fire.

Kendall: Yeah, with the tip of her broomstick, no doubt.

Trey: She's got ideas, Kendall. And Erica better watch out because Greenlee is out to own this town.

Mary: Greenlee, sweetheart, what's wrong? You ok?

Greenlee: Nothing, nothing. I --

Mary: Is it Leo? Did something happen to make you miss him?

Greenlee: I never stop missing him, mother, but, actually, this doesn't have anything to do with Leo. Come in. Come in. I've -- I've made a decision.

Mary: Yes?

Greenlee: I'm going to start my own business.

Mary: Oh, darling, that's wonderful! But this is so unexpected. But, you know, your message sounded so tense, I thought you were in some kind of trouble.

Greenlee: Well, no, not trouble, but I do need your help.

Mary: I'm here for you, whatever you need.

Greenlee: Good, because I need money, lots of it, today.

Marian: As long as we've been married, I have never asked you once to go against your conscience, have I?

Stuart: Well, I -- no, I guess not.

Marian: Well, I'm asking you to do it now. Please, just this once, for Liza and Colbyís sake.

Stuart: You're asking me to lie.

Marian: I'm asking you, please, to let this go. Let it go.

Stuart: I'm not sure I can.

Marian: Please, Stuart. If you love me as much as you say you do, you'll do this for me. Please.

Stuart: All right, all right, all right, all right, all right. I'll -- I won't say anything. But you shouldn't doubt my love for you. You know better.

Marian: I -- I know. I know you love me. And I know how hard this is for you to do, and I -- I thank you. And I love you so very much. Thank you, Stuart. Thank you.

Mia: Marry me tonight? Why?

Jake: Why do you think? Because I love you.

Mia: But why tonight? I mean, why?

Jake: No, just --

Mia: Do you think something's wrong with me?

Jake: It's ok. Just relax, lay down. It's -- you -- there's nothing wrong with you. You are perfect.

Mia: But you don't think that Iím going to make it, do you?

Jake: No, no, no, honey, that's not it. That's not it at all. I was talking to Tad earlier, and he made me realize something, and that's that every day counts. Every minute.

Mia: What's wrong?

Jake: Yeah, get Dr. Rodriguez in here, stat.

Greenlee: It's a safe investment. I -- I have all the experience, I've learned from the best in the business, and Iíve got something they don't -- I'm young, Iím hip, I'm way more plugged in to the look of tomorrow.

Mary: And you're a trendsetter. It runs in the family.

Greenlee: Right. Exactly. Which is why my company is going to wipe Enchantment right off the map.

Mary: Beating Erica Kane is quite an ambitious goal.

Greenlee: I can do it, right now, right here in Pine Valley. There's this building that came on the market today. It's a pharmaceutical plant, and it's the perfect place to launch my new line. But I have to act fast before Erica gets her hands on it.

Mary: Well, you should have enough capital to do that -- the trust fund that your grandfather set up for you.

Greenlee: Well, the market is in free-fall and my inheritance has shrunk from a fortune to a -- a nest egg. So I don't have enough to buy the building on my own.

Mary: Darling, I really don't want to disappoint you, and under other circumstances I would be happy to help you, but this is a huge financial risk.

Greenlee: It's not a risk. This is a win-win situation. I mean, you're going to make your money back quadrupled.

Mary: Greenlee, you've never started a company.

Greenlee: You don't think Iíll succeed.

Mary: No, I'm not saying that. I -- it's just that it -- you can't build an empire overnight and you will burn out before you ever see your first profits.

Greenlee: I won't fail, mother. I'm very, very good at this.

Mary: I know you are, and I think that you should talk to your grandparents. I know they'd be happy to help you.

Greenlee: They're out of the country and this can't wait.

Mary: Greenlee, I cannot invest in anything unless my attorneys check it over thoroughly, and that would take a while --

Greenlee: Forget it, mother. I don't want to bankrupt you.

Mary: I'm not saying that you would do that. I -- I just have to be cautious --

Greenlee: No, of course. Of course, and you should be. I'll find a way to do this on my own.

Mary: I have no doubt that you will. You've never backed down from a challenge. If anything, you thrive on them,

[door closes]

Greenlee: You don't want to invest in my company? I'll find someone who will.


Kendall: Greenlee Smythe is going to take on Erica? Mommy dearest will squash her like a bug.

Trey: Oh, I don't think so. When Greenlee wants something, she won't let anybody get in her way until she gets it.

Kendall: You sound like you're hot for her or something.

Trey: She's my brother's wife.

Kendall: Correction -- widow. Leo's gone. No competition.

Trey: Oh, for God's sakes, Kendall, I am not after Greenlee. I'm just trying to help her get through this pain that she's in.

Kendall: What, by encouraging her delusions of grandeur?

Trey: By helping her make a new start. That's why I can't join you for lunch. I have to find out who owns the Greystone building.

Kendall: Wait a minute. Wait -- hold on. What does Greenlee want with that dump?

Trey: Hmm. That's privileged info.

Kendall: What, she's your client now? Trey, you can't even practice law. You've been disbarred.

Trey: I've been suspended. Anyway, I'm not doing anything that requires a law degree.

Kendall: Ooh. You're walking on the wild side now?

Trey: It's just a business deal, ok? I'm not about to get my license back just to lose it again trying to break the rules.

Kendall: Oh, please, like you ever walk the straight and narrow.

Trey: I'm not going to let you steal Greenlee's idea.

Kendall: I have about $2 to my name. I'm hardly in any position to compete with little miss trust fund.

Trey: That's true -- you could never afford the Greystone building. Let's just hope Greenlee can.

Kendall: So is -- is that where she's going to start her new cosmetics company?

Trey: That's the plan. Look, Greenleeís business instinct is dead-on, and that place is in turnkey condition. She could use the offices and the labs practically as is.

Kendall: Ok. It sounds like a smart move, but where do you fit in?

Trey: I have to find out who owns the building and make them an offer, today if at all possible.

Petey: I know who owns the Greystone building.

Kendall and Trey: Who?

Petey: It's going to cost you.

Kendall: No, wait a minute. Hold on, hold on, hold on. If this little pip-squeak knows who owns the Greystone building, it's got to be his father.

Trey: Oh -- Palmer Cortlandt. I'll try to get him on the phone right now.

Kendall: Wait. I have a better idea.

J.R.: Come on, Laurie, don't break up with me.

Laurie: We're not right for each other.

J.R.: Why not? Give me one good reason.

Laurie: Your life is so different from mine.

J.R.: We're different. So what? I like that.

Laurie: I don't have time to go out. I've got a full course -- a full course load and five extracurriculars just so I can look good on my college applications, which I haven't done yet.

J.R.: You're just making excuses.

Laurie: No, I'm not.

J.R.: Just tell me the truth -- you're dumping me because of that guy.

Laurie: What guy?

J.R.: The new janitor. He's the reason you're breaking up with me.

Laurie: You don't know what you're talking about.

J.R.: Laurie, I'm not going to walk away from you without knowing why.

Laurie: I told you.

J.R.: No, you told me a bunch of lies. It's not because I have money and you donít. It's -- it's because of him. Come on, Laurie, tell me. Tell me!

Laurie: Yes! It's because of him!

Liza: Adam, no! Yes!

Jake: -- Oh Ė

Laurie: That's what you think? That Iím, like, with the school custodian?

J.R.: What am I supposed to think? He's always hanging around watching you.

Laurie: So?

J.R.: You got to admit, Laurie, it's a little possessive. Either -- either he's a stalker or your boyfriend.

Laurie: He's not my boyfriend. He's my father.

Kendall: Ok, you can go now. Bye. Bye-bye.

Trey: Ok, Kendall, what's your idea?

Kendall: Let me talk to Palmer for you. He likes me, and I think he could cut you a good deal.

Trey: Why would you want to help Greenlee?

Kendall: I'm helping you, moron.

Trey: All right. What's in it for you?

Kendall: Do you need me to connect the dots for you? Fine. Maybe you can put in a good word for me with Greenlee and ask her if she can give me a new job with her new company.

Trey: Yeah, but I thought you'd rather die than work with her.

Kendall: Well, I don't have to see her on a daily basis. I could be like a sales rep or something and travel all over the place. Anything to get out of playing nanny to little scrooge over there.

Petey: I heard that.

Kendall: Good.

Trey: All right. Now, I can't promise anything, but I will talk to Greenlee on your behalf.

Kendall: And I'll talk to Palmer for you. Come on, Petey. Let's go talk to your dad like I promised.

[phone rings]

Trey: Hello.

Greenlee: Trey, it's me. You find the owner yet?

Trey: I made some progress.

Greenlee: Well, how far along are you?

Trey: I might have this thing wrapped up by dinner.

Greenlee: I'm counting on you, Trey.

Trey: I'm not going to let you down. Bye.

Kendall: Bye.

Petey: You never promised to help me find my dad.

Kendall: I'm promising now.

Petey: You're up to something, aren't you?

Dr. Rodriguez: I think we're through the worst now. Jake.

Jake: Thanks, Tom.

Tom: I'll leave you two alone now, huh?

Jake: You're going to be all right.

Mia: So you were worried about me?

Jake: Well, actually, my brother said that you would kick it. He was right.

Mia: Yeah, big brothers -- they always think they're right.

Jake: You know what? He was right about something else.

Mia: Who are you calling? Tad?

Jake: Chaplain. I'm not going to waste another minute. I want you to marry me right now.

Tad: Liza? Hey.

Liza: Hi. What are you doing here?

Tad: I'm checking up on my future sister-in-law. How's she doing?

Liza: Not good. Jake's in with her now.

Tad: If anybody can pull her through this thing, he can. How are you?

Liza: Well, I'm not the one who went through a window.

Tad: Maybe not literally, but I guess it depends on how you look at it. I apologize for Jamieís behavior the night of the ball. I had no idea he was going to announce Adamís affair to the world.

Liza: I already knew Adam was cheating.

Tad: Yeah, well, at least the other woman turned out to be Brooke and not Mia.

Liza: Why would you say that?

Tad: Well, you told me yourself last summer about how, you know, Adam put the cufflink in Miaís bed to make you think that they were having an affair.

Liza: Yeah, he was trying to drive me crazy.

Tad: Yeah, well, you're over it, right? I mean, you didn't really think that -- that Adam and Mia had something going, did you? You told me yourself last week that, I mean, you knew Adam was sleeping with but you had no idea with who. You don't honestly think it was --

Liza: Tad --

Tad: Liza, what really happened to Mia the night of the party?

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

Tad: Did you push Mia out of that window?

Man: You're Adam Chandler Jr., and your father ruined my life.

Jake: Do you want to call this wedding off?

David: I've been expecting you.

Edmund: Why is that, Hayward?

David: I'm the only one who can give you your wife back.
