>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Henry: Well, it looks like we've just been christened lab partners.

Maggie: Oh! Cheers.

Henry: Cheers.

Trey: I have a new place for Reggie to live. I petitioned the court and got custody of you, Reggie.

Jake: Mia's going to be here any minute.

Tad: Are you trying to convince me or yourself?

Greenlee: We're having a marketing session in the conference room.

Mia: I have to call Jake.

Greenlee: Call him later!

Maggie: Oh, man. Henry. Henry, wake up.

Henry: Hmm -- what?

Maggie: Hi.

Henry: Hi. We fell asleep? What -- what time is it?

Maggie: Um -- 8:30?

Henry: A.M.?

Maggie: Yeah.

Henry: Maggie, look, I'm really, really sorry about this.

Maggie: For what? Falling asleep?

Henry: You know, I don't usually do this kind of thing.

Maggie: It's ok. Don't worry about it. Hey, at least we got a lot of work done, right?

Henry: I have to go.

Maggie: So, you want to meet up later so we can talk --

Woman: Wow. Cute guy.

[knock on door]

Reggie: Yo, T, door.


Reggie: Yeah?

Greenlee: Hi.

Reggie: Hey.

Greenlee: Who are you, and why are you answering Trey's door?

Reggie: I'm Reggie, and -- because I live here.

Greenlee: Oh. Ok, well, does Trey still live here?

Reggie: Who are you?

Greenlee: Trey!

Reggie: Yo, T, your girl's here.

Greenlee: His girl?

Trey: My what? Ahem. Greenlee.

Greenlee: What have you been telling this kid?

Mia: Fusion's line of credit needs to be accessible by the start of business today. What, you're a 24-hour banking service, aren't you? Ooh, you put me on hold and I will find another bank. Thank you. Half an hour -- perfect. Hi.

Liza: Hi. Good morning.

Mia: Good morning.

Liza: You're really taking to all this, aren't you?

Mia: Yes. This is such a rush. I love this.

Liza: Well, that's great. Well, you know what? You have to put it on hold because we have to go.

Mia: We do?

Liza: Yeah. Remember? You have that appointment?

Mia: Oh, God. Remind me?

Liza: Georgia Finley, the lady who's designing your wedding dress?

[Mia gasps]

Mia: Oh, God. That's today. I totally forgot.

Liza: Yeah, well, that's why you have me, so come on, let's go.

Mia: I -- actually, I think I need to postpone. I really do.

Liza: What? No, you canít.

Mia: It's just that I have the budget proposals to do, and this thing with the bank and the line of credit, I --

Liza: No, no, no, no, no. Wait a second. You have no idea how difficult it is to get an appointment with this woman. You cannot blow her off at the last minute.

Mia: Yes, but everybody here is depending on me. I've never had an opportunity like this before.

Liza: And you've never gotten married before, either. Mia, is all this more important than getting married to Jake?

Tad: Oh! You're here. Great. I -- oh, I got the proposition you asked me for. You know, for Dixieís endowment, the teaching position. You remember.

Jake: Oh, yeah.

Tad: You want to take a look at it?

Jake: Sure, sure.

Tad: You know, for a guy that had a candlelight-and-roses dinner lined up last night, you're here pretty early. What happened?

Jake: Well, actually, nothing happened. Mia never called. I put the food in the fridge, the candles in the trash, and I went to bed.

Tad: Alone?

Jake: Alone. Mia got in some time after midnight, and she was gone by the time I woke up this morning.

Tad: So she never had any idea of what you were planning, huh?

Jake: You know, it's weird. I -- I don't know what's happening. I don't know what's going on with her. I just -- I'm --

Tad: Disappointed? Ready to start screaming?

Jake: I'm starting to think that you're right, Tad. Mia doesn't want to get married -- at least not to me.

Joni: Ok, so, this is the student center. I want to check out the gym, the library, the English department, and -- oh, that freshman dorm, Tyler hall.

Laurie: There's a rumor that it's haunted.

Joni: The dorm?

Laurie: Yeah. Lighten up. It's college. The ghosts are probably too busy studying to cause any real trouble.

Joni: You're making fun of me?

Laurie: A little. I'm going to grab a course catalog. You want one?

Joni: Definitely.

Jamie: You know, everyone's been saying the freshman dorm's a portal to the underworld.

Joni: Jamie, what are you doing here?

Jamie: I'm skipping class, just like you.

Trey: Reggie, this is not my girl. This is my sister-in-law, Greenlee Dupres.

Greenlee: Hello, Reggie.

Reggie: Hi. Is that -- your name's really Greenlee?

Greenlee: Yeah, it's a family name.

Reggie: Oh, so -- well, whatever they call you, you're hot. But I'm sure you know that. So you're here to see T, right?

Greenlee: That's right.

Reggie: Ok, I'll be over there.

Trey: I wasn't expecting you so soon.

Greenlee: I can see that. So what's going on? What's with the new roommate?

Trey: Reggie needs to a place a crash and I'm his lawyer, so --

Greenlee: So, what? This is something the court sanctioned?

Trey: Absolutely.

Reggie: Why? Do you have a problem with me being here?

Greenlee: I don't, but you might. I mean, who thought you were qualified to be someone's guardian?

Trey: Excuse me?

Greenlee: Did they even bother to do a background check on you?

Trey: Green-- all right, Greenlee --

Greenlee: Obviously, they didnít. Otherwise, criminal past would have disqualified you.

Reggie: Criminal -- what criminal past?

Trey: She's exaggerating, Reggie.

Greenlee: Oh, I am? Well, let's see -- identity theft, arson, tampering with a lie detector --

Reggie: Whoa, whoa, whoa --

Trey: That's enough. Ok, social services knows what they're doing. Reggie needs a place to stay, and he's much better off with me than he is with a group home with a bunch of strangers.

Greenlee: You really believe that, don't you? Wow!

Reggie: Just what is so funny, lady?

Mia: No, of course, my work here at Fusion isn't more important than my wedding to Jake.

Liza: Well, I was just beginning to wonder.

Mia: Just, Liza, we're not even getting married for six months.

Liza: You know, a good wedding takes months to plan. Seeing a dress designer in January isn't tantamount to, I don't know, jumping the gun.

Mia: I know, I know, and I will, I'll see her, but I'm not going to run out of here right now to go look at a wedding dress. That's totally unprofessional.

Liza: Believe me, it's ok!

Mia: Oh, weren't you the one who walked in here all businesslike with those Shanghai products, wanting to see the marketing agenda?

Liza: Yeah.

Mia: And when was that? It was New Yearís Eve.

Liza: Yeah, so?

Mia: So Iím simply taking my cue from you, that's all.

Liza: You are?

Mia: How does it feel to be emulated?

Liza: Ahem. Is that what it really is, or are you using work to avoid your life?

Mia: This is my life. This is my life. It's a big part of it, anyway, and Jake understands that. He does. Now, I need to talk to you about this line of --

Liza: No, no, wait a minute, wait a minute. Just back up. Does Jake really understand? Have you talked about this?

Mia: What do you mean?

Liza: I don't know. I mean, this is a big change.

Mia: I know. I know. And it's great. And I'm Jakeís happy for me. Why wouldn't he be?

Tad: Look, maybe I was dead wrong last night, ok? There is no reason on earth that Mia should not want to marry a fine, upstanding, red-blooded, hard-working American doctor like yourself.

Jake: Look, don't play this on the surface, Tad.

Tad: No, really. I mean, you're a real catch. I'll marry you.

Jake: Just give it a rest.

Tad: Are you sure? Because mom and dad would be real proud if I brought home a doctor.

Jake: Forget it. Just forget it.

Tad: Just don't be too hard on yourself, all right? She does love you. Doesn't she?

Jake: She says she does.

Tad: Well, what kind of answer's that?

Jake: It's an honest answer, Tad. I love her with all my heart. She just -- she's suddenly finding this whole cosmetic company thing the end-all be-all in her life, and all the plans we made together have been pushed aside.

Tad: So, you're not her first priority anymore?

Jake: No, I'm not her first priority. You know, even with my job here at this hospital and all the stuff I got going on here, I put her first with everything. I think she's pulling away.

Tad: No, now, wait a minute. No, no, no, no. Wait, wait, wait. Look, I -- I was off base, ok? Just because the woman wants a career does not mean that she's trying to ditch you.

Jake: I support the whole career thing. I don't have a problem with that. She's the one who's suddenly cancels this wedding in February.

Tad: Yeah, well, what girl doesn't want to be a June bride? That makes sense --

Jake: She quit her job at the hospital, Tad.

Tad: Well, because she got a chance to be a high-powered business exec. That follows. It's logical. They make a lot more money, and you should be happy. They got a better dress code. Have you ever seen those suits with the short skirts, the see-through blouses, the lace-up things with high heels? That's hot! I need a shower, Iím sitting here thinking about it.

Jake: She's not returning the phone calls I'm making.

Tad: Well, maybe she's not returning your phone calls because there's other -- I mean, they're starting a comp-- oh, what the hell. I could be funny or I could be brutal. Which do you want?

Jake: Be brutal.

Tad: The phone-call thing isn't good. Maybe she is pushing you away.

Reggie: Is it funny to you because I got to stay in a group home? Or because I can't go home because my mom's strung out half the time?

Trey: Reggie --

Reggie: No. Or is it funny because I just don't look like the type of person who should be in a place like this?

Greenlee: Actually, it's none of the above.

Reggie: Well, why don't I believe you?

Trey: She speaks her mind. I would take her word that she's not laughing at you.

Greenlee: He's right. I wasn't laughing at you, Reggie. I was laughing at Trey.

Trey: Me?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

Trey: Why? You don't think I can do this, do you?

Greenlee: No, I donít.

Trey: And what makes you such an expert?

Greenlee: Well, for starters, shouldn't Reggie be in school right now?

Reggie: Well, Reggie doesn't have classes this morning.

Greenlee: Convenient.

Trey: Would you excuse us, please? Would you just lay off the third degree, please?

Greenlee: I can't question what you're doing with this kid? I own this apartment.

Trey: I've got it under control! Besides, I am serious about helping Reggie out.

Greenlee: So you're going to be his role model? Someone to look up to?

Trey: Yes! In fact, that's why I asked you to come over.

Greenlee: I thought you had papers for me.

Trey: Well, that, too. But I'm serious about this.

Greenlee: So this is really about you?

Trey: No. This is about Reggie.

Reggie: Excuse me. If it's about me, why don't I have any part of the plans you're making for me?

Joni: Neither one of us is cutting class. You know they gave juniors permission to check out P.V.U. today.

Jamie: That's why Iím here.

Joni: You want to go to college here?

Jamie: I wanted to see you.

Joni: Jamie, don't do this.

Jamie: Joni, I want a second chance. I know I screwed up, and I'm sorry.

Joni: Jamie, I know you're sorry. So am I. But I meant what I said. We're not going to work out, ok? We're just too different.

Jamie: No, we arenít. Look, we're both here. We both want to go to college.

Joni: So do a lot of people. Come on.

Jamie: You know you're good for me. You even said you loved the way I make you laugh.

Joni: I don't want to get into this, not the day I want to do this. I want to meet some teachers and just check out some classes.

Jamie: Well, if you think you can't do that with me, ok. I'll see you around.

Laurie: Joni, what is the matter with you?

Mia: Look, Jake understands my reasons for wanting to push the wedding back until June.

Liza: I know that you did a 180, I mean, but the man wanted to marry you while you were still in the hospital.

Mia: Look, he gets that Iím invested in making this career move.

Liza: If you say so.

Mia: Look, you know what? He didn't even get mad at me when I came home after midnight last night.

Liza: Wait a minute. You worked until after midnight?

Mia: Yeah. Sometimes that's what it takes to get the job done around here.

Liza: Yeah, you know, I know. I've spent a majority of my life that way.

Mia: So then you understand where I'm coming from.

Liza: Yeah, I do, but you're just starting a life with Jake. Don't lose sight of that in all this.

Mia: I wonít. I couldn't. Besides, he's busier than I am. He spends hours at the hospital, and he's always on call and he's being paged.

Liza: I just worry about you.

Mia: Well, donít. Jake and I are solid.

Jake: Tad, I mean, I -- things are just -- they're starting to fall apart. I can feel it.

Tad: Jake --

Jake: She's been through so much, and that's -- that's why I don't pressure her. I don't want her to feel defensive.

Tad: Well, there is that. I mean, she's got so much on her plate. Maybe the way she's acting hasn't got anything to do with you or the marriage. It's possible.

Jake: Well, you don't understand. Life has not been easy for this girl. She was forced to put her son up for adoption. She comes here to Pine Valley in search of her family, she gets all entangled with Adam and Liza's whole private war. We're not talking about stability here.

Tad: Huh. Come on, Adam and Liza? They don't do stability, you know. That shouldn't surprise you.

Jake: I'm just saying that she has had a lot to sort out, and I understood that. I mean, that's why I never pressured her. That's -- I never pressured her even when I saw her pulling away.

Tad: Ok, so she's dealing with a lot. What if she's trying to test your resolve? You know, women do that.

Jake: Mia's not a game-player, Tad. I'm telling you, when it finally started working with us, when we made that connection, it was intense and it was good. And I knew -- I knew in my heart we were meant to be together.

Tad: That's the way you're supposed to feel.

Jake: That's right, and the feeling was mutual. She had this accident. That's when I knew. I just knew. I knew I wanted to be with her. I wanted to be with her all the time, forever. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.

Tad: Is that what she wants?

Jake: Yes, it's what she wants, and it's she wants because she told me. She told me that she wanted to start a family with me. She told me that she wanted to grow old with me. She's not -- she's not lucky, like you and me. We're lucky. We come from a good family. I want to give her that.

Tad: Ok, let's go back to the "growing old together" part, shall we? What about passion? Ok, what about the "can't keep your hands off each other" mentality? Is that there?

Jake: It's there.

Tad: You sure?

Jake: It's there for me.

Tad: Is it there for Mia? Hey, Jake, if you blow off a hot romantic dinner with someone, you know, I -- you don't do it without a phone call.

Jake: It's not like that.

Tad: I'm not so sure. Whatever it is that Mia is looking for, it just doesn't seem like she's finding it with you.

Jake: Well, you are brutal.

Tad: I'm sorry, Jake, but it's just not supposed to be like this. For God's sake, man, you love somebody that much, you want to make them your wife? If the wining and dining isn't working, then maybe -- maybe there's only one thing left for you to do.

Jake: What's that?

Tad: Dump her. 

Jake: I'm not breaking up with Mia.

Tad: But you'd rather tie yourself in knots in order to hang on to her?

Jake: If that's what it takes, yes. And your advice about dumping her isn't going to fly, so go ahead and take off.

Tad: Jake, I'm just trying to help.

Jake: By telling me to break up with the woman I want to marry, Tad? I don't need that kind of help. See you later.

Tad: You need to hear this, ok? The way Mia's treating you stinks. You're not her doormat.

Jake: That's not what it's like.

Tad: You practically have tread marks up and down your spine.

Jake: That's bull, and you know it.

Tad: Jake, what if -- what if this is just like Greenlee and Gillian all over again?

Jake: Don't you even go there. You're way off base.

Tad: Look, you're my brother, you're family, I love you, you know that, but you've got to hear this, ok? This is your pattern. You do it over and over again, all right? You lay down your life. You give your all to some girl, and what do you get back? Nothing. If Mia is too stupid to know what you have to offer, then, kiddo, you got to move on.

Jake: You're the last one who should ever give advice about the patterns of women.

Tad: I -- I'm not saying Iím perfect. Everybody's got their pattern.

Jake: Then why are you picking on mine?

Tad: Because yours is tearing you apart.

Jake: Yeah, just like yours tears women apart, Tad. But I guess that's just what goes around when you get involved with someone as selfish as Tad the cad, right?

Tad: Tell me something. Why are you so fired up to get married in a hurry?

Jake: Because I love her.

Tad: No. Because you're in love with the idea of being someone's husband. Look, whether or not you want to admit it, you are rushing things. Do yourself a favor and slow down. Find a girl who's not going to make you question whether or not your feelings for her are returned.

Jake: Like you and Dixie?

Tad: Yeah, like me and Dixie.

Jake: Come on, Tad, let's be honest. I was there. I remember what it was like. You think you had the perfect marriage with Dixie? When? Was it the first time around, or was it the third time around? Was it before or after your relationship with Liza?

Tad: Hey --

Jake: Yeah, that's right. You're rewriting history, Tad. The truth is you love Dixie more now that she's dead than you ever did when she was alive.

Mia: You know, after my accident, I had a lot of time to think. And I made a promise to myself that I better start making better choices, you know, and stop settling for things just because they were right in front of me. I'm just -- I'm tired of making decisions that I regret.

Liza: We all have those.

Mia: Not me. Not anymore. And Fusion is proof of that.

Liza: You know, I have to tell you, Iíve never seen you so excited.

Mia: Well, having this job -- it's this chance -- it's just opened this whole new world for me.

Liza: And working for a cosmetics company? I mean, that's done this for you?

Mia: Yeah, it's made me a part of something. I feel feminine and glamorous. It's, like -- I don't know. For the first time in my life, I feel like a real woman and not some gawky kid who spends way too much time in her uncle's gym.

Liza: I had no idea you felt this way.

Mia: Well, you know what? I really never did either. But any time Iíve ever gone into a department store or tried to buy clothes, it just didn't fit, and now I want to look good. I mean, so do we all here. I'm starting to think about my hair and my makeup and my clothes and my nails, and -- oh, my God, I must sound so shallow to you right now.

Liza: No! No! I mean, you never thought about those things?

Mia: Not really, no.

Liza: Why?

Mia: I don't know. I guess -- I guess I didn't really feel very good about myself, especially after I gave William up for adoption. You know? But ever since I told Frank, it's like I've made a peace with myself.

Liza: Maybe you've decided to stop punishing yourself.

Mia: Yes. Whatever it is. But now life just seems so full of possibilities for me.

Liza: Being in love will do that to you.

Mia: No, it's not even love. It's work. I just -- I can't wait to get up in the morning and come to the office, and Iíve got all this energy. That's not me.

Liza: And being with Jake?

Mia: He's the best, Liza. He really is.

Liza: Well, apparently, you can have it all.

Mia: I can. I can have it all, and I'm turning my life around.

Liza: Well, when would you like for me to reschedule this fitting for a wedding dress?

Simone: Oh, Mia! Oh, my God! You just might have the face to launch and sell a million lipsticks.

Trey: Remember, we were talking about getting you a part-time job?

Reggie: What about it?

Trey: Well, I know a place that's looking for help.

Greenlee: Are you talking about Fusion? I made a detour from work to come down here to talk to you about hiring some high school kid?

Trey: Well, if Iíve wasted your precious time, I apologize.

Reggie: Ok, what about it? What's Fusion? I don't want to work in no nuclear power plant or something like that.

Greenlee: Please. Fusion is not a nuclear power plant.

Trey: Though with Mrs. Dupres and my sister Kendall running it, sometimes it's pretty close.

Reggie: Well, what is it?

Greenlee: A cosmetics company.

Reggie: No, no. I'm not working there, selling deodorant and perfume -- no,

Greenlee: Oh, well, you tried.

Trey: Reggie --

Reggie: No! I mean, I don't want to be wasting my time selling smelling stuff and -- no, nah.

Greenlee: My company's a little more complex than that, thank you.

Reggie: Whatever.

Trey: Greenlee -- look, Fusion needs all the help it can get, right? And Reggieís asking price is cheap.

Greenlee: It is?

Reggie: It is?

Trey: Look, a couple hours a week after school. That's all I ask.

Greenlee: Trey, you're really putting me on the spot here.

Reggie: Well, get off the spot, all right? Because I'm not into selling smelly stuff and -- no.

Trey: You're not going to be selling anything, Reggie. Odd jobs around the office, that's it.

Reggie: Boring.

Trey: Reggie, Reggie -- you're going to be working for really hot women. So you in or you out?

Joni: I don't want to talk about Jamie.

Laurie: Why not? What's wrong with him?

Joni: Laurie --

Laurie: No. I want to know because he seems like a really great guy to me. I mean, he's smart, funny, cute, and he really likes you a lot.

Joni: Who wouldn't want to date a guy that makes headlines in the tabloids, right?

Laurie: Joni, he's not responsible for what his family does. People make mistakes, even you and me.

Joni: Yeah? Was dumping J.R. a mistake?

Tad: You ever say that again, I will tear your head off. Do you understand?

Jake: Get your hands off me.

Tad: Don't you say that to me. Don't you ever say to me!

Jake: Oh, but you can say whatever you want to me, Tad? What makes you think you can come in my office and dump all over my relationship with Mia?

Tad: I'm dumping on Mia because she's dumping on you. And I'm on your side, remember?

Jake: All right.

Tad: Yeah.

Jake: I'm sorry. I don't know -- I don't know -- I'm sorry. I know -- I know how much you loved Dixie. I know how much you miss Dixie. I miss Dixie, too. I don't know what came over me. I'm sorry.

Tad: Apology accepted. Just do me a favor, ok? You make sure that Mia means that much to you, because if anybody's going to get hurt in this thing -- I like her, I like her a lot, but I'd just assume it wasn't you.

[phone rings]

Tad: Hang on. Yeah, hello. No, the report's on my desk. Because I left there. Well, check under the Chinese takeout menu, I don't know. All right, fine, it's ok. Just give me 10 minutes. I'll get to the office and find it myself. I got to go. I'll see you later?

Jake: Thanks.

Tad: Don't work too hard.

Mia: Jake, get up.

Jake: I've waited my entire life for this moment.

Mia: Jake --

Jake: Now, I know it seems kind of soon, but I love you, Mia, and nothing's ever felt so perfect, so right, than when I hold you in my arms. Forever. Mia, will you marry me?

Mia: Yes! Yes! Yes, Jake!

Nurse: Dr. Martin? Multiple victim M.V.A. en route. We need you in the E.R.

Jake: Ok, let's go.

Simone: Mia, your posters -- oh! They are absolutely fabulous!

Mia: Really?

Simone: Oh, gosh. Yes, you've got to see them. We're actually going to launch Fusion's first campaign.

Liza: Well, this is great news.

Simone: Uh-huh! Ok, so, we've hired high school students to start hanging posters. So by this time tomorrow, Mia, your beautiful face is going to be all over town.

Liza: Mm-hmm.

Mia: Ok, suddenly, I'm getting a little bit overwhelmed here.

Simone: No, no, we want to be overwhelmed -- with orders!

Liza: I cannot believe this. My sister, a pinup girl.

Mia: Oh, stop.

Simone: Oh, Liza, I don't know if there's any way that we could ever thank you for everything you've done for us.

Liza: No, no. I gave you suggestions, some advice --

Simone: Oh, no, you've done much more than that, and you know it. I mean, you gave us the confidence to believe in ourselves and our ideas.

Mia: Including your guerrilla marketing strategy, Simone.

Simone: Oh, gosh, let's hope it works.

Liza: How can it not with Mia plastered all over Pine Valley?

Simone: Mm-hmm.

Mia: Oh, God. I'm never going to hear the end of this, am I?

Liza: No. You've given me great material. But listen, if we're not going to go get a wedding dress for you, at least give me the figures and I'll review them.

Mia: Ok. Listen, I'm sorry about your wasted trip.

Liza: No, it's not a wasted trip. But we should talk about rescheduling for a fitting.

Simone: Oh, yeah.

Mia: Yeah?

Simone: Yeah.

Liza: Listen, congratulations again.

Mia: Oh, thanks.

Simone: Thank you, thank you.

Mia: I know.

Simone: Yeah. Oh, gosh. I cannot believe that you're getting married in six months.

Mia: Yep. Yep, yep, yep. That's the plan.

Simone: Mm-hmm. Well, if these posters are any indication about you and Jake, you two are going to be insanely happy.

Mia: I'm sure we will be.

Jake: All right, let's get him in cube three.

Woman: Doctor, will he be all right?

Doctor: Yes. He's going to be fine.

Jake: He's going to be just fine. Give me the bullet.

Doctor: 22-year-old woman, passenger side impact. There are multiple contusions and lacerations on her left side. Her respirations are strained. There's a laceration on her left shoulder --

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Doctor: With a bleeder, but I can't find it.

Nurse: Pressure's dropping, 80/50.

Doctor: Where is it? I can't find the bleeder.

Jake: Ok, ok, Alison, just take a deep breath. You can do this. All right? Good. Now, first, I want you to link the incisions so you can see what you're looking at. There you go. Now put the sponge in there and see if you can spot the bleeder. Got it?

Alison: Hmm.

Jake: Good. Take a hemostat and clamp it off. There you go.

Alison: It's working.

Jake: Yeah. There you are. Open her I.V.

Nurse: Got it.

Alison: Thank you, Jake.

Jake: All I did was watch. Keep up the good work, Dr. Waters. Ok, let's see if we can get you ready.

Laurie: You can't compare me and J.R. to you and Jamie.

Joni: Why not? I mean, isn't J.R. smart and cute, funny, and really into you, too?

Laurie: Yeah, but --

Joni: And doesn't he have a family with problems that have nothing to do with him?

Laurie: I guess.

Joni: So, why is it ok that you broke up with J.R., but not ok that I ended things with Jamie?

Laurie: Because it was my idea to break up with J.R. You broke up with Jamie because your parents told you to.

Joni: That is so not true.

Laurie: Jamie. Hey. Did you get a chance to check things out?

Jamie: Yeah. This place is awesome.

Laurie: Did you get a chance to look at that course catalog?

Jamie: Oh, yeah.

Laurie: Look at all these journalism courses.

Jamie: Oh, my gosh. I know this guy. He worked with my mom at "Tempo." Where'd you get this?

Laurie: Over there.

Jamie: All right, thanks. I'll be right back.

Laurie: He really is sweet, isn't he?

Joni: Just like J.R.

Henry: Maggie.

Maggie: Hey! Henry. I've been looking for you. I mean, I still don't have your phone number, so --

Henry: Well, I've been in class.

Maggie: You didn't leave this morning because of something I said, right?

Henry: No, it wasn't you. I just don't like to be late for things. Maybe we shouldn't study in your room.

Maggie: Yeah, that bed is way too tempting. Oh, wait, I didn't mean it like that.

Henry: No, I know what you meant.

Maggie: Ok, good. Well, how about we go to your dorm room?

Henry: I don't -- I don't live on -- in the dorms.

Maggie: What, you live off campus?

Henry: Yeah.

Maggie: Oh, that's cool.

Henry: Well, not really. It --

Maggie: Why? Do you live with eight roommates and have a keg in the living room or something?

Henry: I got to go.

Maggie: Oh, you have another class you don't want to be late for?

Henry: Yeah.

Maggie: Ok. Bye.

Simone: Well, you know what? Actually, I was thinking more of, like, a feature article on this new cosmetics company called --

Mia: That's Fusion -- F-U-S-I-O-N. I could messenger you a letter of credit first thing in the morning.

Simone: The evening edition? Well, how about, like, tomorrow's "What's Cooking" page? Yes.

Mia: Tomorrow -- tomorrow is perfect.

Simone: Ok! Thank you!

Mia: Ok, thanks a lot.

Simone: Thank you, good-bye.

Mia: Thanks a lot. Ok, bye.

Mia and Simone: Ah!

Mia: Oh, so where's Kendall and Greenlee? Shouldn't they be here, you know, running their company?

Simone: Oh, well, actually, I don't know about Greenlee, but Kendallís in Aspen.

Mia: What?

Simone: Hmm.

Mia: What is she doing there?

Simone: Well, actually, if I tell you, you got to promise you won't tell Greenlee?

Mia: Ok.

Simone: She went there on business. Yeah, there's this huge cosmetic convention, so she's there drumming up new business.

Mia: Oh, really?

Simone: Yeah.

Mia: And who's paying for this little trip?

Simone: Palmer Cortlandt.

Mia: Hmm.

Simone: Mm-hmm.

Mia: Oh, please tell me she had to take little Petey Cortlandt.

Simone: Yeah.

Mia: That's classic. I can't wait to tell Jake.

Simone: So -- are you sure your fiancť is going to be fine with this all-out campaign? Have the two of you --

Mia: Oh, it's not a problem. Jake is totally supportive.

Greenlee: Hey.

Simone: Oh, perfect timing. I wanted to clear it with you about setting up another photo shoot for Mia. You know, try to build our gallery for the campaign?

Greenlee: A good idea. Just don't blow the whole budget.

Mia: Who's your friend?

Trey: Ladies, this is Reggie Porter.

Greenlee: Reggie's going to be working here part-time after school.

Mia and Simone: Oh.

Mia: That sounds like fun.

Simone: Yeah, great.

Mia: I'm Mia.

Reggie: Hi.

Mia: Hi, and this is Simone.

Simone: Oh, yes, hello.

Reggie: This place is really kind of cool.

Greenlee: Thank you.

Reggie: You know, I could really dig hanging around here.

Trey: Yeah, well, you're not going to do a lot of hanging out. You're going to be working. Look, why don't you come back in a little bit and Greenlee will have something for you to do, ok?

Reggie: All right, well, see you later.

Women: Bye.

Trey: Did you have some papers for me to sign?

Greenlee: That can wait. Where's Kendall?

Mia: Don't know, but I'm sure she'll be in soon.

Greenlee: Well, she better be, or Iím going to pull her lacquered fingernails out one by one.

Trey: Ouch.

Simone: On that note, I'm going to Marishka about the photo shoot.

Mia: Just please don't make it for today. I want to get home in time for dinner with Jake.

Simone: Oh, of course.

Jake: His kidneys are overloaded. Switch his I.V. to a K.V.O. for the next four hours and give me a call when you have his next labs, ok?

Nurse: Right, doctor.

Alison: Dr. Martin.

Jake: Yeah.

Alison: I wanted to thank you again for walking me through that procedure.

Jake: Yeah, well, it's no problem. You did a fine job.

Alison: I promise in the future I'll be better about holding it together.

Jake: What do you mean? Don't beat yourself up over today. You know, my dad once told me when I got started that a good doctor is always walking a fine line between complete control and total chaos. It's how you handle it that counts.

Alison: Well, you set a good example.

Jake: Well, thank you.

Alison: Hey, listen, after the shift, some of the residents are headed over to B.J.'s. Would you like to join us?

Jake: Uh -- actually -- thank you for asking, but I --

Alison: I'd like to buy you a drink. If not tonight, sometime.

Jake: Yeah. Yeah, sure. Sure, sure, why not? What do I have to lose?

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

Bianca: What do you want me to say? That you have a shot with Kendall?

Boyd: Do I?

Man: Well, I was hoping we could have dinner together.

Kendall: I would love to have dinner with you.

Chris: I'll make this a night you never forget.
