>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Maggie: You think that because I'm not Asian I can't possibly understand where you're coming from. You know, you make it really darn hard to get to know you.
David: Nobody's going to find out that you fed your wife an untested drug.
Edmund: She already knows.
David: You told her? What, are you out of your mind?
Maria: Where are we headed to?
Aidan: We have got to get as far away from the hotel as possible.
Maria: Ok, ok, let's go.
Simone: Ok, so this is done. Don't correct, just proof.
Greenlee: I need the ingredients delivered right away.
Simone: What are you doing that for?
Kendall: We can't have the press release for our party going out on the wrong date. Hello?
Simone: It's not. February 15th. That's tomorrow.
Greenlee: Payment plan, like layaway?
Kendall: No, no, it can't be. That would make today February 14th, otherwise known as Valentine's Day, and there's no way that it is.
Greenlee: So much for civility on a day devoted to love.
Simone: Do you even own a calendar?
Greenlee: Happy Valentine's Day, you cretin! Ugh, that -- what's the Grinch equivalent for Cupid?
Kendall: It's -- it's Valentine's Day?
Simone: Duh, duh, duh, duh.
Greenlee: Has been all day.
Kendall: And we're stuck here party planning? We should be out having romantic dinners with dreamy guys.
Simone: Yeah, well, the only dreamy guys I have are in my dreams. And Greenlee -- she's a widow. And you -- you know, you have your two-faced, probably two-named -- well, we know that's for sure, and he's obviously gone.
Kendall: Ok, you know what, Michael had business to take care of.
Simone: Right. Well, maybe he did, so get your mind off of romance and proof.
Kendall: Ugh. This is -- you know what, this is really depressing. We should be being worshipped and wined and dined.
Greenlee: Could you please shut up? I used to love this day. Now it's so bleak.
Kendall: It should be abolished.
Simone: Well, you know, it's not even really a real holiday. You know, it's just like a hype to sell candy, flowers, sappy cards.
Kendall: You wouldn't be saying that if you had a date.
Simone: I don't need one. Ok, I don't need a pseudo holiday to make me feel less like a woman, especially when I have, like, a fabulous job because of you two. Thanks.
Kendall: It's perfect.
Simone: Oh, good. Look, we can buy our own candy and flowers.
Kendall: That's not what I miss.
Greenlee: Me, either.
Simone: Ok, all right, so we don't have love or intimacy or fabulous sex lives --
Carlos: You're hot. You need me?
Greenlee: Now, he's a --
Kendall: Mind reader.
Bianca: Oh, please tell me this isn't dinner.
Maggie: Hey, you know, Henry is just unreal because one minute I think that he is nice, super nice. I mean, he's considerate, he's helpful. What do you think? Oh --
Bianca: I think, darling, you need bigger crackers.
Maggie: And then I have this Asian chick. Bianca, if you could hear this girl. She's constantly reminding me about how Henry is something to be loathed or hated.
Bianca: Well, maybe he's got some kind of a beautiful, brilliant mind thing going.
Maggie: Or maybe he's just a jerk.
Bianca: But is he a cute jerk?
Bianca: Well, you told me everything about this kid except what he looks like.
Maggie: Because what does that have to do with anything?
Bianca: I don't know. You tell me.
Maggie: We shouldn't talk about this.
Bianca: Why not? I'm ok with it.
Maggie: He's good-looking. Yeah, he's a good-looking guy, but it doesn't even matter because he's more textbook than he is normal, more human.
Bianca: So all the chemistry is on the page?
[Knock on door]
Maggie: I'll get rid of whoever it is. Henry.
Henry: What do you think you're doing?
Henry: Look, I don't need this, ok? I'm not failing O-Chem because of you.
Maggie: What are you talking about?
Henry: Look, stop making me crazy!
Anna: Thank you.
David: For loving you?
Anna: That, and saving our little girl.
David: A lot of people worked hard to pull that off.
Anna: Yeah, but --
David: Yeah. You wait here, ok?
Anna: No, no, no, don't go. Please don't go. Please?
David: Well, I have to go if I'm going to get you a surprise.
Anna: A surprise?
Anna: Oh. Well, hurry up, then.
David: You're going to love it.
Anna: I'll just wait here.
David: Why are you here?
Edmund: To see Anna.
David: The hell with that.
Morgan: So, what, you're just going to leave Kingman's body in there for housekeeping?
Julian: I'll take care of the remains.
Morgan: And the cleanup?
Julian: It'll be handled! Stop nattering!
Morgan: It's going to be dark soon. It's going to be even harder to find Aidan once the sun goes down.
Julian: You're awfully anxious to see him dead.
Morgan: Aren't you?
Julian: Well, there's no need to rush it. I want him to go out slowly, with each breath a moment of agony. He'll drown in grief as he mourns for the love of his life.
Morgan: That would be justice.
Julian: There will never be justice for what Aidan did to me. The way he took my wife, the way he humiliated me in front of everyone I know, everyone who worked for me, everyone whose respect I need. The way I was laughed at --
Morgan: Honestly, no one was laughing at you, Julian.
Julian: You think I didn't know? I knew. And now I'm going to be the one who's laughing. I'm going to take his soul mate and kill her right in front of his eyes. Then I'll kill him, too. And I'm going to relish every second of it.
Singer: Like an angel of the sky you came clearing up all the clouds, the sadness, and the rain so pure and healing was the love you bring I knew inside it felt so right for me I've struggled all my life to find that thing that makes it right with you it seems I may have found some other kind of love a sacred part of me
Aidan: Well, that'll keep the sand out, at least.
Maria: It feels 100% better having that shackle off. Thank you.
Aidan: I'm going to need to get you someplace safe.
Aidan: Do you think you can walk?
Maria: Yeah, definitely. Definitely.
Aidan: Is it still bad?
Maria: Uh, yeah. Yeah, a little bit. A little bit. I'll just hang on.
Simone: We didn't call you.
Kendall: Ok, if he pulls truffles and roses out of that box, I'm going to pass out.
Carlos: Reggie told me of your heat.
Greenlee: Reggie as Cupid?
Kendall: Oh, there's a picture.
Carlos: I can fix it.
Kendall: Oh, of course. Simone, tell him where it hurts.
Simone: Don't we all have work to do?
Greenlee: It's awfully warm in here.
Kendall: Yes, it is.
Carlos: Um, I'll be out of your way as soon as I replace these several screws and I replace your box.
Kendall: Oh, so that's her problem.
Simone: Will you guys just settle down?
Greenlee: Take your own advice.
Kendall: You know, you've been quivering since Carlos walked in here. You're acting like a dog about to jump on a juicy steak.
Simone: Oh, I have not! I just think that it's a shame that he has to be here tonight, that's all.
Greenlee: I forget -- is drooling a sign of sympathy?
Simone: Oh, ok, ok. You know what, I'm just going to go find out how he's doing and what's going on.
Kendall: Oh, right, "What's going on," like if he deserves -- if he wants brunettes or should she be a blonde.
Simone: Carlos, this is really way beyond the call of duty.
Kendall: Ok, five bucks says he's teaching her to tango before the night's over.
Carlos: Um, this new box will fix you.
[Knock on door]
Kendall: Come in.
Greenlee: Kenny. Hmm, competition.
Kenny: Is Simone around?
Greenlee: Don't tell me she's in legal trouble again.
Kendall: Yeah, after that postering fiasco, she swore she'd go straight.
Kenny: Nah, I just wanted to see how she's doing.
Greenlee: Oh, Simone is getting better and better all the time. Simone?
Greenlee: Your lawyer's here.
Simone: Oh, hi.
Kenny: Uh, you're busy. I can --
Simone: No, no, Kenny, come on. Don't be silly. Come over. I want to introduce you to someone.
Kendall: Hmm, what do you know? Our public relations expert has a gift for private relations.
Anna: Oh, Edmund. You can't be my surprise.
David: No, definitely not.
Edmund: How you feeling?
David: Edmund, she's not having visitors right now.
Anna: Baby's going to be all right, thanks to David.
Edmund: That's great.
Edmund: Listen, your sister, Alex -- she tried to call, but --
David: We're holding her calls.
Edmund: So I promised her I'd stop by.
Anna: That's really sweet. Thank you.
Edmund: We've all been very worried about you.
David: Anna and the baby came through the surgery just fine. She'll be receiving calls tomorrow. You can tell Alex she can call then.
Anna: David, why don't you go and get my surprise? I'm going to talk to Edmund.
David: Anna, you really need to be resting right now.
Anna: I do need to talk to Edmund.
David: Don't stay long. Please get some rest.
Anna: I will. I'm right here. I'm lying right here. It's all right.
Edmund: Something you need me to tell Alex?
Anna: We should talk about Aidan and Maria.
Henry: Look, my class load's high-pressure, all right? It's supposed to make me crazy, not you. I mean, don't you have anything better to do?
Maggie: Bianca, Henry. Henry, Bianca.
Henry: Hi. Sorry. I didn't know.
Bianca: Hey, Henry. It's great to finally meet you.
Maggie: Nice of you to drop in.
Henry: Finally? What do you mean, "Finally"? She's been talking about me?
Bianca: Kind of.
Henry: What, kind of venting? Complaining?
Bianca: Uh, you know what? I was just leaving.
Henry and Maggie: No, you don't have to go.
Bianca: I'll see you around.
Maggie: Ok, you want to rage, rage.
Henry: Look, I've been thinking about what you said.
Maggie: Yeah, I get that much.
Henry: That I'm bigoted, I'm a racist.
Maggie: I didn't exactly say that, Henry.
Henry: Well, that's what you meant.
Henry: So I'm not. All right, but I'm not going to sit here and stick my head in the sand and pretend that others aren't. Racism exists.
Maggie: Uh-huh. So?
Henry: So you act like it's nothing!
Maggie: No, I don't. Henry, what's wrong?
Henry: Look, you, ok? Like, you're what's wrong.
Maggie: Ok, so then it's not just a Caucasian thing? It's just me?
Henry: No, no, no. Like you -- stop confusing me, ok? You're just -- look, I'm -- I'm just trying to say that -- that all the prejudice and all the bigotry in the world -- which is a hell of a lot -- can't stop me from feeling the way I feel about you.
Simone: Carlos is fixing our thermostat.
Kenny: You don't say.
Simone: He's actually showing me how it works. What brings you by?
Kenny: Debt collection.
Greenlee: She's on her own.
Kenny: Well, I was going to eat alone, but the Valley Inn is teeming with couples celebrating Valentine's Day, and since you said you owed me --
Simone: Yes. Would a single dinner settle my debt?
Kenny: It'd be a start.
Simone: Well, as long as you can take me as is.
Kendall: Just take me.
Simone: I'll just be a minute.
Simone: Ok. Could you guys maybe just excuse me for a few hours?
Kendall: Why? So you can dig into his legal briefs?
Simone: That's very funny.
Greenlee: I thought he was more the boxers type, myself.
Kendall: Yeah, would you let us know who's right, please?
Simone: You guys get your minds out of the --
Greenlee: Out of the gutter? Oh, all that hot air about Valentine's Day being a national abomination.
Kendall: Yeah, she probably believed that until Carlos got her sparks going.
Simone: Oh, yeah, like if Michael Kinsey Cambias just walked right in here, you wouldn't do backflips, right?
Greenlee: Oh, come on, come on, come on. Come on, we're just kidding. Go take the legal beagle on a run.
Kendall: Yeah, don't let him catch the fox too quickly.
Simone: Not until the fox wants to be caught, right? Anyway, you still have Carlos. Carlos? Oh.
Kendall: Guess Zorro has left the building.
Greenlee: Have fun, Simone.
Simone: Ok. Thanks, guys.
Simone: Happy Valentine's.
Kendall: Oh, well. At least we still have our work.
Greenlee: Don't pretend you're not depressed.
Kendall: Ok, so I'm jealous. What can I do?
Greenlee: Got me. Go to some Valentine loser's chat room?
Kendall: I'll check my e-mail.
Greenlee: See if Michael left you a message?
Kendall: Huh. What do you know? I have a bona fide Valentine -- a sweet, goopy Valentine.
Greenlee: Michael Cambias, goopy?
Kendall: No. Michael didn't send it.
Greenlee: How many guys are you seeing?
Kendall: It's not for me. Your e-mail is the one that's already logged in.
Greenlee: Somebody sent me a Valentine?
Maggie: So worldwide bigotry doesn't stop you from thinking I'm a lunatic?
Henry: No, that's not what I think.
Maggie: Ok, so I've just made you into a lunatic?
Henry: Yeah. I mean, no. I mean, but other times it's -- other times, you're ok.
Maggie: High praise. Want a cracker?
Henry: You can be pretty cool. Well, what I'm trying to say is that I don't hate you, ok?
Maggie: You can be a very confusing guy, Henry.
Henry: What, me? You're the one who's -- maybe we shouldn't start on that.
Maggie: Yeah. The Asian-Caucasian thing -- it really, really frustrates me. I don't understand. Is it some throwback to World War II or, I don't know, your grandparents' generation? I don't get it.
Henry: Well, I think it's just about differences, like distrust and suspicion and people needing to feel superior. Well, I mean, you ought to know better than most people.
Maggie: What, because I'm a woman?
Henry: Because you're gay.
Maggie: Oh. So that's what's been going on with you?
Henry: Hey, you know, whatever you and Bianca are into, it's no big deal.
Maggie: If I were Bianca's lover, I would not be ashamed. Bianca happens to be a great person. A great person. I have done a lot worse -- believe me, a lot worse -- and Bianca and I are just friends.
Henry: It's really ok.
Maggie: No, it is ok. But there's nothing going on. We're just friends. There's nothing -- believe what you want to believe. You know, I really don't care. But I'm not gay.
Henry: Ok. You're not?
Maggie: Not that it matters.
Maggie: You know, and I've seen how people have treated her. I mean, I've felt it spill over me, but I've learned that people in this world are really, really stupid, and we don't have to let that affect us.
Maggie: And you know, who really cares what people think about us and how we work with each other? I mean, all that matters is how we feel about us.
Henry: And acing O-Chem.
Maggie: Right. You know, we make a great team. A great study team.
Henry: Yeah. So, you want to go over some stuff?
Henry: Yeah? I was covering carbocation rearrangements.
Maggie: That's as good a place as any.
Anna: Aidan was framed for the murder. Now, the police know that now.
Edmund: They're sure he didn't kill anyone?
Anna: No. He was set up.
Edmund: Well, I'm happy for your nephew. But all that means to me is that Maria was right about him.
Maria: Will Julian be able to find us here?
Aidan: It's going to be a hell of a lot harder, I suppose. He's back at Atlantis. I think we bought some time.
Maria: Ok, now, I know you can't give me any guarantees here or anything, but can you give me an idea what might be next?
Aidan: Julian's not going to let this go. The only way this is going to be over is if he kills me or I kill him.
Maria: And all this because you fell in love with his wife? The things people will do in the name of love.
Aidan: You see, that's the thing. It's not because Julian even loved Fiona or that I loved her. It's that he just couldn't stand the thought of losing her to me. Especially me.
Maria: Why especially you?
Aidan: When I first moved to London, I was just a young kid. I was as green as the hills. I fell into Julian's gang and moved in with Morgan.
Maria: Oh, so now that she's with Julian, I can see that that didn't end very pretty, huh?
Aidan: No, it didn't. So I managed a few jobs that made me feel tough and made me feel like a match for Julian.
Maria: He didn't like the competition?
Aidan: Julian wanted to crush me, the same way he was crushing his wife -- constant criticism. Nothing I ever did measured up.
Maria: So you and Fiona bonded?
Aidan: That's about all we dared to do, Maureen. He was abusing her. I didn't want to make it worse.
Maria: But you fell in love with her?
Aidan: I thought it was love, yeah. But I never touched her. I knew that Julian would kill her if we gave in to what we felt. But I had to do something.
Maria: What did you do? I mean, besides leave Morgan.
Aidan: I went to Afghanistan to get myself killed.
Woman: Good night.
Kendall: Thank you.
Greenlee: "Subject -- Valentine's Day. Sender -- Admiring from a distance."
Kendall: Hmm. Sounds nice.
Greenlee: You know what, it's nothing. It's like some e-card company wanting me to spend money to send a Valentine to a friend.
Kendall: Well, that's low. "Admiring from a distance." That's not very nice. Just delete the sucker, and then I'll get to my mail. Hey, what are you doing?
Greenlee: I can't help it. I'm curious. "Happy Valentine's Day to someone who's worth more than diamonds, more precious than gold. Forgive me for not saying this in person, but I'm afraid I'm forced to admire you from a distance. May you have all the love you deserve today and always."
Kendall: That's weird.
Greenlee: No one I know would dare send this to me.
Kendall: So what do you think, it's someone's sicko's idea of a joke?
Kendall: Greenlee? Do you know who sent it?
Greenlee: Leo. It's from Leo.
Anna: So the real killer had the U.S. authorities doing his job for him -- tracking Aidan down.
Edmund: To my home. Thanks to Maria, they lost Aidan at Wildwind.
Anna: I just thought you should know.
David: You're still here.
Anna: Yeah, we've been talking about Aidan and Maria.
Anna: You know, I hope it's not going to interfere with any of this equipment, but can I use your phone?
Anna: Well, because you've had this phone switched off, and I really do need to call the W.S.B., because they'll be able to find Aidan and Maria.
David: Anna, not now. Look, you and the baby need rest, ok? This is not the time.
Edmund: Listen, I -- if you want to call your nephew, you know, for your own sake, that's your business. But as far as Maria and I are concerned, don't, because we're over, Anna.
Anna: Oh, I'm sorry.
Edmund: Yeah. Yeah, I'm sorry I pushed so hard to get back what Maria and I had. Would've saved us all a lot of trouble.
Anna: Well, I still need them found because with this Julian person after them, they're in even more danger than they were before.
Aidan: So when my tour was over, when I came back to London, I had no intention of meeting up with any of these guys ever again.
Maria: But you did.
Aidan: Yeah. Well, Julian found me and invited me to dinner with him and Fiona so all three of us could catch up. And when I went and saw Fiona, I could see that she was just lost and she just couldn't see her way out. I mean, she was -- she was nervous and tense and she was spilling water everywhere and dropping silverware. And then she said the wrong thing, and Julian just got up and just smacked her --
Maria: Oh, my God.
Aidan: So hard that she just fell off of her chair. And of course I couldn't take that, so I just grabbed him and just beat the living crap out of him right there. And of course the police were called, and they turned up and put both of us in jail, and we spent the night there. And the next day I got released and Julian was kept for further questioning.
Maria: What happened to Fiona?
Aidan: Well, I thought it was safe, so I went to see her, and I tried to convince her to leave Julian.
Maria: Was she ready?
Aidan: She was. And right there, we made love for the first and for the last time.
Maria: Julian found out, and he killed her?
Aidan: What I wanted to do was to show her love and to help her out.
Maria: How did you get away from him back then?
Aidan: Morgan. Morgan arranged for me to go to Pine Valley because she knew my aunt lived there and that she might be able to help me out and look out for me.
Maria: That's actually pretty loyal considering you dumped her.
Aidan: Yeah, you would've thought so, until she moved in with Julian to help him with his so-called grief. Look, Maureen, I've got a bad track record. But I will not let Julian get back at me and settle his score using you. There's no way.
Maria: No, you're not the one that's got the bad record. It's Julian that's got the bad record, not you.
Aidan: You're the one that's getting hurt.
Maria: I -- I've been hurt a lot worse, Aidan, in ways that don't show. Believe me.
Aidan: Believing in you is -- is not a problem.
Kendall: Greenlee --
Greenlee: Leo is reaching out to me. He couldn't let Valentine's Day go by. He couldn't let me be alone.
Kendall: Ok, I wish I didn't have to say this, but do you know how crazy this sounds?
Greenlee: He had to get in touch.
Kendall: Look, if you think Leo dropped by the Heavenly Cloud Internet Cafe and typed in this message to you, then I'm taking you to Lysistrata right now for some emergency shrinkage.
Greenlee: You don't know the connection that Leo and I had. It -- it made the impossible possible.
Kendall: Not this. Come on, this is just some crazy --
Greenlee: Hey, don't you delete that!
Kendall: Greenlee, come on, you were this close to moving on -- this close. And now you get some cockamamie e-mail that you claim is Leo's Valentine from the other side? That's ridiculous. You're using this as an excuse to hang on to Leo and to not live your life.
Greenlee: That's not true.
Kendall: No, it is true, and Leo would hate it.
Greenlee: How would you know?
Kendall: I've had glimpses of you and Leo together. He wanted his love to open up the world for you, but you're using it as a blanket to smother yourself. How do you think Leo would feel about that?
Greenlee: It's just hard sometimes. I think about what we would have done today, how we would have filled 24 perfect hours, only we never will ever again.
Kendall: I'm sorry.
Greenlee: Me, too. But we had it for a while.
Kendall: Yeah, you did. You were both very lucky.
Greenlee: We were.
Edmund: You listen to me. You take care of two things -- this and this.
David: I'll be right back. One second. Thanks for not saying anything to her.
Anna: You are holding out on me.
David: Why do you say that?
Anna: I think I'm owed a surprise.
David: Yeah, you are. Here it is.
Anna: I thought it was going to be chocolates.
Anna: Oh. Am I looking at what I think I'm looking at?
David: Well, I don't know what you think you're looking at, but that there is a sonogram of our beautiful little girl.
David: And right there -- you see that?
David: That is her nearly perfect heart. And all the numbers are telling us that her heart rate is exactly as it should be.
Anna: Oh, God. We owe you so much, that little girl and me.
David: Hey. You stick with me, all right? I need you both.
Henry: Yeah. Seems easy enough. Excited states are pretty easy to understand.
Maggie: Yeah, even as it applies to atoms.
Henry: Even atoms. Vibrations are vibrations.
Maggie: Yeah. I guess even when you get down to the basics, chemistry's not that hard.
Henry: No, it's not.
Maggie: Henry --
Maggie: Nothing. I forgot what I was going to say.
Maria: Did it work?
Aidan: Yeah. One shot.
Maria: Excellent. You know, I'm so glad that you told me all that before because I feel like I know you better.
Aidan: See, then I shouldn't regret spending the last hour in paradise talking about the past.
Maria: No. No, no, please. You know, it's funny, but not being able to remember my own past, I feel like it kind of helps me be more true to who I am, especially when I'm with you.
Aidan: Well, that's something.
Maria: It's everything. Happy Valentine's Day.
Aidan: Come with me.
Kendall: Oh, well.
Greenlee: Michael Cambias is a very busy man.
Kendall: I guess we're proof that there is no happily ever after.
Greenlee: Except in fairy tales.
Kendall: Yeah. And if you think that it's going to happen in real life, then you're setting yourself up --
Greenlee: For a broken heart?
Kendall: You know what? I think I'm going to go home to some hot chocolate for one. You?
Greenlee: Think I'll stick around.
Man: Ms. Hart?
Man: That's for you.
Kendall: Oh, thank you.
Man: Yeah. Sign here, please.
Greenlee: Guess Michael didn't forget Valentine's Day after all.
Kendall: Yeah, I guess not.
Greenlee: So, are you revising your opinion of happy endings?
Kendall: I guess we'll have to compare notes in a few years. Happy Valentine's Day, partner.
Edmund: Hey, sugar pie. Aren't you supposed to be getting ready for bed?
Maddie: But I haven't seen you all day.
Edmund: Come here. Hi. Is that for me?
Maddie: Don't be sad, Daddy.
Edmund: I'm not sad, sweetheart.
Maddie: I know. You wish Mommy could be here to be your Valentine.
Edmund: You're Daddy's favorite Valentine, you know that? You always will be.
Maddie: You're mine, too.
Singer: I am ready for love why are you hiding from me? I'd quickly give my freedom to be held in your captivity I am ready for love here with an offering of my voice, my eyes my soul, my mind tell me what is enough to prove I am ready for love I am ready
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Simone: Are you busy tonight?
Kendall: Maybe tonight's the night all of our dreams come true.
Maggie: Henry kissed me.
Bianca: And it was that bad?
Maggie: It was that good. That's what's so bad.
