>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Woman: Aidan -- Aidan --

Aidan: You came back.

Woman: Of course I did.

Anna: I just received word from London that Aidan is wanted for murder.

Liza: Ladies, to the potential in this room that can and will change the world. To Fusion.

All: To Fusion!

Annaís voice: I just received word from London that Aidan is wanted for murder.

Kendall: This is the first time in my life I've actually enjoyed getting to work at the crack of dawn.

Simone: Kendall, it's 9:30.

Kendall: Your point being? Look. Look at this place. I love it! This all ours!

Simone: Oh, yeah. Yeah. We definitely did a lot last night.

Kendall: Yeah.

Simone: Very impressed.

Kendall: Yeah. The only thing that worries me is Greenlee. She's not getting into it, not like the rest of us.

Simone: Well, Kendall, we have to remember, Greenlee's trying to deal with Leo being gone.

Kendall: I know, and I feel terrible. But last night when we were coming with all these ideas, she was completely blocked.

Simone: Well, you know, she said that she doesn't have any fantasies left, you know, no dreams.

Kendall: Yeah, it's like she's living inside this glass box just cut off from life.

Simone: You know, I think that we just we have to give her some time.

Kendall: Maybe it's better that she doesn't show up to work today.

Simone: Huh?

Kendall: We'll get a lot more done without her, don't you think? I think so.

Greenlee: Hmm. What name should I write on these incorporation papers -- "Fusion Cosmetics" or "Smash and Trash, Inc."? Hmm? Because if that's what this is, I'm taking my glass box home.

Tad: Hey, kiddo.

J.R.: Hey.

Tad: I didn't expect to see you today.

J.R.: Yeah, I just wanted to check the machine.

Tad: You waiting on a call?

J.R.: Yeah, Laurie -- because I never know where Iím going to be.

Tad: Well, she hasn't called here.

J.R.: She hasn't called anywhere. I mean, she would if she was ok.

Tad: How do you know she's not ok?

J.R.: It's her dad. I mean, the guy's messed up. He gets drunk and takes all kinds of stuff out on her.

Tad: Well, then why don't you call and check up on her?

J.R.: Because he goes ballistic if he even hears her talking to me. I mean, the guy already ruined her Christmas. What kind of New Year's is she going to have? Somebody should stop him, like, now.

Tad: Good idea. I'll tell you what. You give me a minute, grab a jacket; we'll both go over. We'll stop him together. Be right with you.

Doug: Laurie, I didn't expect you back so soon.

Laurie: The store was closed.

Doug: Don't come in here. I got a surprise for you. Don't --

Laurie: I can't believe you. You're drinking already? And today of all days.

Doug: I was trying to make pancakes. Buttermilk, like your momís. Since she's not here, I was trying to keep our tradition, New Year's breakfast, but guess I should have known better.

Aidan: I knew you were in this wing. I knew you were sleeping here, away from everyone else.

Maria: Well, I'm not that far away. Edmund will hear me if I scream.

Aidan: Now, why would you scream? You're not afraid of me, are you?

Maria: Shouldn't I be? You killed someone.

Aidan: No, no. You're going to have to let me explain. What Anna told you --

Maria: What Anna told me was a lot more than you've told me, Aidan, and I want you out of here right now.

Aidan: You can't believe --

Maria: No, I am serious. I mean it -- now.

Aidan: You're not afraid of me --

Maria: I'm telling you, if I scream, Edmundís going to hear me and he'll be here in, like, two seconds, and he will kill you if he sees you in here. And even if not, if you're found out, you'll be arrested.

Aidan: Well, I'm not leaving, Maureen, so I guess you're going to have to scream.

Tad: Ok. Ready to go. Between the two of us, we should be more than a match for him. You'd never know looking at me now, but I have a decent amount of experience with girlfriends' fathers.

J.R.: I'm sorry, Tad, but I'm a little too old for reverse psychology.

Tad: Ok. Has Laurie asked you for your help?

J.R.: Well, no, but --

Tad: I'm sort of assuming she's not in any physical danger.

J.R.: No, her dad doesn't hit her. He just doesn't let her have a life. And he hates me.

Tad: Why?

J.R.: He thinks just because my name's Chandler that I get everything I want.

Tad: Huh. So, you're going to go running over there, barge in uninvited, tell him all about what's wrong with him, and then ask questions later? Who does that sound like? Maybe Adam Chandler?

Laurie: Daddy, Iím sorry.

Doug: Nah, you're right. You know what to expect of me, and it's not a home-cooked breakfast.

Laurie: No, no, this was so nice. I guess I was just still angry.

Doug: I know. I embarrassed you -- showing up at the Chandlers', dragging you away.

Laurie: Why don't you trust me, Dad? Look, I know I ran away from you at S.O.S., but you're mad no matter what I do.

Doug: Honey, I just want to keep you safe. Laurie, when I was your age and a guy gave a girl his class ring, it was something nice, it was innocent.

Laurie: It still is! J.R. is a nice guy. You don't know him, but you know me, so why do you keep thinking bad things?

Doug: I wish I didnít. You know, when I saw you coming down those stairs at the mansion with him, I --

Laurie: I didn't sleep with him.

Doug: I believe you. It's J.R. who I don't trust. What worries me is that you do.

Laurie: J.R. wouldn't do anything I don't want.

Doug: Look, Laurie, I mean, whatever you think of this boy, however he may act, he's a Chandler, which means he's not like us.

Laurie: J.R. wasnít the one who got out of control, who yanked me out like I was prisoner.

Doug: I know. I'm sorry. I'm going to do better.

Laurie: You keep saying that, but --

Doug: I know. And I know -- I know Iím the reason your brother and sister didn't come back for Christmas, but I just don't know how to do this, Laurie. I let your mom take care of you. And why not? She was the world's greatest mom.

Laurie: She was.

Doug: And wife. Well, if she was here --

Laurie: Daddy --

Doug: She'd know how to fix things up. You know, she always had the right words that made us forget all the bad feelings. But I -- I don't know those words, Laurie. I wish -- I wish I did, but I Ė

Simone: Greenlee, you're right. I'm sorry. It'll never happen again.

Greenlee: Thank you, Simone. I accept your apology.

Simone: Ok, so, now can we just get to work?

Greenlee: I've been working.

Simone: You did the incorporation papers already? Greens, you had to have been here all night.

Greenlee: Yeah, I was.

Kendall: Ok, I have a question. Before I can get to work, I need to know who will be in charge of the expense accounts.

Greenlee: The what?

Kendall: Well, I have to buy myself some new business outfits. I'm planning a trip to New York to get in touch with my Enchantment contacts, and I'll have to look like an executive.

Greenlee: And you expect us to foot the bill?

Simone: How can there be an expense account if there's no income?

Kendall: Well, what about Liza's money?

Simone: That's not for clothes.

Greenlee: In the business world, Kendall, you don't get anything you don't earn.

Kendall: Says the spoiled little heiress. I bet if you asked your granddaddy, he could get you some great outfits from Milan right now.

Greenlee: You know, and as for me having a fantasy, how about this one -- a partner that actually earns her keep.

Kendall: You know what? I do earn my keep --

Greenlee: Oh, really? And you want an expense account, right?

Liza: What is with you two? Hey! Every single time I walk in.

Kendall: Liza, it's nothing --

Greenlee: We were just talking about the company.

Liza: Ok, listen up. I'm only going to say this once. My role is not to play referee. If you two cannot start acting like professionals, you will be replaced.

Aidan: Please, Maureen. You can't believe that I would hurt you.

Maria: No. No. Are you all right? Are you still in pain?

Aidan: Don't worry about me.

Maria: You took a really big chance coming here. Why? Did you think that I was going to call the police after what Anna told me?

Aidan: No. Well, at least I hoped that you wouldn't.

Maria: Then why are you here?

Aidan: Because I want to tell you everything, Maureen -- everything that has happened and why I'm hiding.

Maria: How do I know that you're going to tell me the truth this time, Aidan?

Aidan: Oh, come on. I'm the same person that you've known all these months.

Maria: No, you're not. You've been lying to me.

Aidan: Look, when we first met, you could see that there were things that I was keeping to myself. But you said, you know, that even so, that you could see that I was a good person.

Maria: Yeah, well, you took advantage of that. Now, you don't have to worry because I'm not going to call the cops.

Aidan: Look, Maureen, I've already told you, that's not why I came --

Maria: But I am going to call Anna.

Aidan: No, you can't do that. Please don't do that.

Maria: It takes every ounce of my energy to try to put my life back together. Do you understand that?

Aidan: Yeah, I know, I know.

Maria: I brought you here, I hid you since Christmas, I had Edmund -- poor Edmund -- cancel the Crystal Ball, all because of you, and why? You're not even the person that Iíve known all these months.

Aidan: I am not a killer.

Maria: No, you're not a killer, but you're just like David. You're totally innocent. You just got bodies trailing you.

Aidan: Don't talk about her like that.

Maria: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I know you loved her.

Aidan: Yes.

Maria: Fiona?

Aidan: I loved Fiona. And I didn't kill her. I would have given my life for hers. And it's very important to me that you believe me.

Maria: Well, then you better tell me everything.

Aidan: I don't want to cause you any more problems.

Maria: No, Aidan, you came here to try to get me to believe you. I'm not just going take your word for it, ok? I canít. If you don't tell me everything, I'm going to call Anna. Just try me.

Aidan: To say I loved Fiona doesn't say anything. She became my reason to live.

Maria: She was married, right?

Aidan: She'd already decided to leave her husband.

Woman: Come back to bed.

Aidan: Fiona, Iím going to be late for work, honey.

Fiona: Work? You can really think of work?

Aidan: Look, if you're going to be moving in, Iím going to have to have some discipline. I'm going to have to force myself to go to work.

Fiona: Mm-hmm. I bet I could think of a way to tempt you.

Aidan: Oh, really?

Fiona: Mm-hmm.

Aidan: Only one way?

Fiona: Wait. Give us a good-bye kiss at least.

Aidan: Come here.

Fiona: And don't you dare come back without --

Aidan: I know, the chicken. Tandoori chicken. Extra spicy.

Fiona: You always know what I like.

Aidan: "You always know what I like." That's the last thing she ever said.

Maria: So, what happened?

Aidan: Well, who could go to work? Who could go to work when all I could think about was her waiting for me at home? So -- so I didn't go. I blew work off. And I came back with a surprise.

Aidan: Fiona, surprise!

Aidan: Oh, baby -- oh, baby -- Fiona? Oh, baby, no. No. No.

Aidan: "You're next." "You're next." That was written -- that was written on the wall. "You're next."

Doug: Thanks for giving me another chance.

Laurie: It's not too late, Dad.

Doug: That's right. It's New Year's -- time for new beginnings. Where you going?

Laurie: I'm going to start by cleaning up this mess.

Doug: No. Honey, I can't put you to work. We're going to go to Pancake Palace. They got, like, 20 different kinds, you know?

Laurie: Yeah, but they won't be like momís. Suppose I try?

Doug: Well, you know how to make it like mom's?

Laurie: No, but I can follow her recipe. She keeps it in her little recipe box.

Doug: Recipe box. Well, that should help.

Laurie: As long as we have enough ingredients. Buttermilk?

Doug: Yeah. We got another quart of milk in there. Oh, honey, it's New Year's. I mean, it's bad luck if you don't toast for New Year's, I mean, at least one drink.

Laurie: Yeah, one very long drink.

Doug: Oh, Laurie, come on. Don't be mad at me. I don't want to argue anymore.

Laurie: Neither do I. It'd be a huge waste of time.

Doug: Well, what about the pancakes?

Laurie: I'm not hungry.

Doug: Well, where you going?

Laurie: Why do you even care? You'll be drunk in a couple of hours anyway.

Tad: You said his wife died two years ago?

J.R.: Yeah, but that doesn't mean you should take his side, Tad. I mean, he's not like you.

Tad: Maybe, maybe not. I know that losing the person that's closest to you in the entire world can change a person. And it takes an awful lot to snap back from something like that.

J.R.: So, what are you saying? I should do nothing, just let him ruin her life? Forget that. That --

Tad: Do you honestly think he's going to change because you tell him to? Let me talk to him for you, on your behalf. I could tell him what I think of you.

J.R.: No. That's lame. I'll do it myself.

[Knock on door]

Maria: So what did you do?

Aidan: I got out of there.

Maria: Why? Why didn't you call the police? They would have been able to find out who wrote that on the wall.

Aidan: Because they wouldn't have or --

Maria: Why wouldn't they have? I don't understand. Why did they blame you?

Aidan: Because I was their natural choice.

Maria: No, you're not the natural choice. The husband is the natural choice, especially if she was really going to leave him for you.

Aidan: Maureen, can't you see? I'm telling you the truth.

Maria: Hey, wait a minute. Who -- who is Fionaís husband?

Aidan: Don't ask me any more questions.

Maria: Who is this? Who is he? Is that who killed her? Is that what you think?

Aidan: Maureen, it's no use, really.

Maria: Look, you've got to tell me everything, Aidan.

Aidan: I canít. I wish I could, but I canít.

Maria: Aidan, is -- this person who wrote this on the wall -- is that who shot you? He followed you here to America, didn't he?

Aidan: Maureen, I am begging you to drop this for your own good.

Maria: No, I will decide what's for my own good, ok? I don't even know if this is even the truth, what you're telling me.

Aidan: Maureen, you trusted me. Ok? You trusted me when you first came into town to take care of you. What Iím asking for you to do is trust me again.

[Knock on door]

Edmund: Maria? Are you awake? 

Edmund: Hey, sleepyhead, are you still in bed?

Maria: Come here. Uh, yeah, Edmund, I'll be there in one second. One sec, one sec. Hey. I'm sorry. I totally overslept. I'll just change really quick. I'll come right down.

Edmund: Ok.

Maria: Ok?

Edmund: Listen, actually, I just want to run something by you.

Maria: Oh, all right.

Edmund: Well, since we canceled the Crystal Ball this year, I don't have any plans for this evening. Do you?

Maria: Nope. I donít.

Edmund: Well, I thought after we, you know, put the kids to bed, I could, you know, set up a romantic dinner for two.

Maria: Oh, that would be wonderful.

Edmund: Ok. Here's what you have to do. You got to show up.

Maria: Ok.

Edmund: Ok.

Maria: Got it.

Edmund: All right.

Maria: I could do that. I can do that. All right.

Edmund: You know, every year at the Crystal Ball, I could feel you close. And so you can imagine -- maybe I'll tell you later.

Aidan: You know, I'm in your way. I'm going to leave soon.

Maria: I don't even know how you got up here to begin with.

Aidan: No, I don't mean here. I mean -- I mean Wildwind. I'll be ready. I'll be strong enough to leave soon.

Maria: No, no, no, no, no. That doesn't even make sense. You should stay here until you're fully recovered.

Aidan: I thought you wanted to wash your hands of me. So, what? So, you believe me, then?

Maria: I believe that you didn't kill her. And I believe that you are up against something that you cannot handle by yourself.

Aidan: I'm going to have to. And please, don't argue with me because I'm not strong enough.

Maria: Ok, ok, I know. You need to get some rest. Let me help you get back down to the stables, ok?

Aidan: I can do it. I'm going to go out that window down there, if you'll just watch out for me.

Maria: Ok. Got it. You know, now I understand.

Aidan: Understand what?

Maria: Why you came to my rescue when I was all alone. You couldn't save Fiona, so you saved me.

Greenlee: We can act professional.

Kendall: We are grownups and professionals.

Simone: This day didn't start out right, but we can pull it together. Greenlee stayed up all night to finish our incorporation papers.

Liza: Oh?

Kendall: Besides, you can't get rid of us. We have the lease to this building, and that's all this company is right now.

Mia: Not necessarily.

Liza: Actually, I've come across a gold mine, which I'm willing to share with you if you feel you're up to it.

Greenlee: Gold mine?

Simone: We're up to it.

Greenlee: What is it?

Liza: An entire warehouse of inventory. Incredible product, totally verified.

Mia: We have all of the paperwork, state-of-the-art cosmetics, certified, developed, and without animal testing.

Greenlee: But where does it come from?

Liza: It was a new company that went bankrupt. Poor marketing.

Mia: Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: And we can just take it over?

Liza: For a song.

Simone: Oh.

Kendall: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. We're going to buy our product sight unseen?

Liza: No, we're going to get a shipment overnighted from Shanghai, but the product is incredible -- vitamin-enriched, purest of the pure. We can take over their entire inventory.

Greenlee: So we're in business.

Mia: We have something to sell.

Simone: We can start making money.

Kendall: All right, Iím in.

Liza: So you really finished all those business papers already?

Greenlee: Yes. Yes. I spoke to your attorney this morning. We incorporated your notes.

Liza: I'm impressed.

Greenlee: Mia -- Mia, could you fax this to the lawyer and then go over everything with him when he gets them?

Mia: Will do.

Greenlee: You check on publishing deadlines. We actually might have something to advertise.

Simone: Yes. Yes.

Kendall: What should I do?

Greenlee: You put a fire under the guy doing our logo. But don't ok anything without checking with the rest of us.

Kendall: I wouldn't.

Greenlee: I'll do some detective work on the original company, figure out why they really went under.

Liza: You know, Greenlee, maybe you should take a break, like five minutes?

Greenlee: I don't need to.

Liza: Yeah, well, I know what it is, the impulse to make your life your work.

Greenlee: Well, I don't have much choice, now, do I? It's not like I have anyone at home, do I?

Liza: Well, no, but --

Greenlee: You know, everyone has a way for me to grieve better -- be more efficient, get over it.

Liza: I'm not.

Greenlee: Well, it's not going to happen. I love Leo as much as I ever did, and nothing and no one is ever going to change that. Am I clear?

Liza: That's not what I'm trying --

Greenlee: Well, just don't try, ok? I have work to do.

J.R.: Maybe you should cut your dad some slack.

Laurie: It seems like that's all I do.

J.R.: Come on, Laurie, I saw the grave, the dates. Your mom died two years ago today.

Laurie: Yeah. It's really hard. We lost her, too -- my brother and my sister and me. My dad acts like it was all his loss, like he let everything go.

J.R.: I was talking to Tad, and he's even worse off about my mom dying than I realized. You know, maybe having your wife die is a whole other thing than having your mom die. You know, not worse, just different.

Laurie: I don't know. It's just he's always hurting. And he keeps saying he doesn't have anyone but me. I should go back.

J.R.: So I guess it wouldn't be too cool if I stopped by tonight? Say, around midnight? I'll meet you outside your house?

Laurie: I don't think so. How about this? When we watch the ball drop at midnight, we can pretend we're giving each other a New Year's kiss.

J.R.: Let's not pretend.

Laurie: J.R., we can't.

["Auld Lang Syne" plays]

J.R.: It's got to be midnight -- close to midnight somewhere in the world, right?

Laurie: Like in Australia?

J.R.: And here, too. 10, nine, eight --

Laurie and J.R.: Seven, six, five, four, three, two --

Laurie: One.

J.R.: Happy New Year.

Laurie: Happy New Year.

Maria: Maddie wouldn't go to sleep until she saw me in my dress.

Edmund: I don't blame her. You ready to go?

Maria: I am. I find that it's very ritzy to have my own personal escort to the dining room.

Edmund: Oh, we're not going to the dining room. I got creative. Come on. I'll show you what I got.

Doug: Hi, honey. Thanks for coming back before midnight.

Laurie: What's up with that?

Doug: Oh, I emptied them into the sink, the whole case. I'm going to toast the New Year with decaf.

Laurie: Really?

Doug: Yeah. I'll walk a straight line for you if you want.

Laurie: No. No, I believe you.

Doug: I'm going to do it now. It's a brand-new year. Look, and I even circled a bunch of job prospects. And I think there's a couple of really good ones here, too.

Laurie: You can do it, Dad. And you're not going to be alone.

Doug: I know, honey. I know Iím not going to be alone because mom is looking down at us.

Tad: Hey, J.R., come here.

J.R.: What's up?

Tad: You should see this. I've been loading photographs into the computer. I was going to burn CDs with them.

J.R.: Uh-huh.

Tad: Don't give me that look. I'm fine. Actually, it kind of helped cheer me up. So, how did it go with you and Laurie?

J.R.: You weren't eavesdropping, were you?

Tad: No. Contrary to what you might think, I actually have a life. Seriously.

J.R.: Oh.

Tad: So, tell me.

J.R.: Well, it went ok. I mean, her dad's more trouble than he's worth, but she loves him.

Tad: Oh. So it's probably a good thing that we didn't go over and kick the hell out of him.

J.R.: Yeah. Yeah. But thank you, though. Can I ask you a favor?

Tad: Sure.

J.R.: Maybe it would be a good idea if you did go over and talk to him about me.

Tad: I can do that.

J.R.: I'll give you his number.

Tad: Actually, I kind of hope it works out between you and Laurie. I think she's good for you.

J.R.: All right, can we stop now?

Tad: Yeah. Come here.

J.R.: I had forgotten about that one. God, you guys were great together.

Tad: Yeah, we were.

Maria: Why the barn? Oh.

Edmund: You like it?

Maria: Oh, this is beautiful. It's beautiful. Uh -- but, um --

Edmund: "But, um"?

Maria: "But, um." Well, I just -- you didn't have to go to all this trouble. But I love it.

Edmund: You know, this --

Maria: Thank you.

Edmund: This part of the barn here has special meaning for us.

Maria: Well, it's where we first saw each other when I came back.

Edmund: It is. And before that.

Maria: Yes.

Edmund: Yeah. It's where we first made love.

Mia: Ok. The lawyer said that Greenleeís work is flawless, and he is filing the papers as we speak.

Simone: Oh. The publication deadlines for the summer issues begin in March.

Greenlee: No.

Simone: Yes. So we can make it.

Kendall: And the logo guy said we will have something by tomorrow morning.

Greenlee: The original company -- they targeted the wrong market, so that is why they really went under.

Liza: All right, the insurance policy is signed.

Greenlee: So, this is really happening.

Liza: I know.

Simone: We should celebrate.

Mia: Well, it is New Yearís Eve, after all.

Simone: Yes!

Greenlee: I forgot. Wow.

Liza: Well, Adamís out of town. What do you say we really do celebrate?

Simone: Yeah, yeah.

Kendall: I'd love to.

Mia: Yeah, you guys go ahead. I'm going to meet Jake.

Liza: All right. So, the rest of you in?

Kendall: Yes.

Simone: Always.

Liza: Ok. Oh, what about the Domino Club in Center City? We'll take Adamís limo. I'll pick you up.

Kendall: Change.

Simone: Change. That's good. Ok.

Greenlee: You know what? I'll meet you guys there. I've got some things to do, so --

Simone: Ok. Well, don't be late, all right? Oh, this is so exciting!

Kendall: I have a great dress to wear.

Simone: Oh, gosh --

Greenlee: I'm ok. I really am. I just need sleep. You know, I've been here all night -- that's all.

Liza: Yeah, I know. There's just no point in pushing yourself if you're not ready.

Greenlee: I'm ready. I'm ready. This is -- this is what I have right now, so --

Liza: No, I know. It just that there's -- there's no job in the world that's going to bring Leo back.

Greenlee: I just need something else to think about.

Liza: Well, maybe you -- have you thought about talking to somebody?

Greenlee: What, like a shrink? You think I'm losing it?

Liza: No, no. I don't think you're losing it. I think you lost him. Uh -- listen, this is my therapist. She's really, really smart, but, you know, above all, she kind of makes me laugh. If you don't like it, it's 50 minutes of your time.

Greenlee: Thanks. "Dr. Lysistrata Schwartz"?

[Phone rings]

J.R.: Hello?

Laurie: J.R.?

J.R.: Laurie? Is something wrong?

Laurie: No. I just wanted to tell you, you know, how things went.

J.R.: Oh, yeah, with your dad. How's he doing?

Laurie: Pretty good. Really good, at least for now.

J.R.: Huh. Well, that's great.

Laurie: He dumped out his beer and circled jobs in the paper.

J.R.: Well, wow. That's -- that's amazing. I'm glad you called.

Laurie: Well, it's almost midnight, and I was thinking about you.

J.R.: Yeah, me, too. I was just --

[Knock on door]

J.R.: Laurie, are you still there?

Laurie: Yeah. It's just my --

Doug: Laurie, it's time.

Laurie: I think it's my dad. I think he wants to watch the ball drop with me.

J.R.: Oh, ok. Well, listen, I was just -- I was --

Laurie: I got to go.

Maria: You know what? I really think we should go ahead and have the Crystal Ball next year for this foundation's sake.

Edmund: Oh, don't worry about it. Most of our big donors came through anyhow. And Dimitri and Alex, they promised to make up the difference.

Maria: Oh, good. Well, that makes me feel better.

Edmund: Speaking of which, I have something for you.

Maria: There's more?

Edmund: Always. This isn't exactly from me.

Maria: It's not?

Maria: It's beautiful.

Edmund: Well, each year, I have a keepsake made for the Crystal Ball. That one's yours.

Maria: Thank you. To think that every year you would have this -- this ball in my memory. And at the same time, in so many ways, I was just as lonely as you were.

Edmund: That's over now. That's part of the past. Here's to the future, starting -- starting right now.

Edmund: Happy New Year.

Maria: Happy New Year, Edmund.

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

Val: Are they from Chris?

Chris: No, they're not. Should I be worried?
