Previously on "All My Children" --

Jack: I'm in your life, Erica, for better or worse. You might as well enjoy it.

Kendall: Good-bye, Donald.

Donald: Where were you planning on taking Erica Kane, huh?

Kendall: What?

Donald: You know, when you had that little rendezvous in your private jet with Kendall's mommy?

Edmund: I went too far. You're sick because of me.

Donald: Hey, hey, hey, hey. So -- so what's the scoop, huh, Cambias? Bouncing back and forth between Kendall and Erica. You have kind of a mother-daughter fantasy thing going on here.

Greenlee: Want to hear my fantasy, you little worm?

Donald: Whoa.

Greenlee: It involves a tabloid reporter tied to a chair with a pair of hot tongs.

Donald: Oh, hey, lose the tongs and I could really get into it.

Michael: Kendall, I '

Erica: How sweet, Jordan. Listen, Jordan, I do want to ask you one favor. Michael Cambias is in town. Yes, yes, I know that he's always been a thorn in your side, which is why I thought you wouldn't mind finding out exactly how long he plans to stay here in town and what his immediate plans are. Yes, yes, do that, ok? You just find out whatever you can and get back to me as soon as you can. Ciao. Bianca, sweetheart, I love your concept for tickled pink.

Bianca: Oh, great. Thank you. However, you might not be quite so tickled to learn that Fusion is hosting a party tonight to launch their new label.

Erica: Honey, that is lips, chips, and ego trips.

Bianca: I don't know, mom. They're poised to saturate the youth market, and if we don't counterattack, we might lose a big chunk of our target demo.

Erica: Honey, we're not going to lose anything. Our youth division is completely secure in large part thanks to your concept. Savvy you have obviously inherited from me.

Bianca: Oh, well, Kendall seems to have inherited her share of savvy as well, and she and Greenlee are raring to bury Enchantment.

Erica: Yes, so they keep saying. Well, let them try.

Bianca: What?

Erica: I have always encouraged others with talent and drive to follow their dreams.

Bianca: Oh, mom, you can't be serious. They're our rivals.

Erica: Honey, would I lie to you?

Jack: Well, well, well, my two favorite women. It must be my lucky day.

Bianca: Uncle Jack. How is lily?

Jack: I am happy to report that lily is back in school and doing fine. Thanks for asking.

Bianca: Great. So who are the flowers for?

Jack: The flowers are for your mother.

Bianca: Really? What's the occasion?

Reporter: Ms. Grey.

Second Reporter: Ms. Grey, how did your husband feel --

First Reporter: What's your husband's take on your trip to the Bahamas? Does he know you're with a wanted killer?

Aidan: You don't have to answer any of their questions.

Maria: No, no, he is not a wanted killer. His charges have been dropped.

Aidan: You don't have to answer their questions.

Reporter: Oh, so he got a pass. Doesn't mean he's innocent --

Maria: No, he is innocent.

Aidan: No comment. No comment. No comment.

Reporter: Your boyfriend likes to mess with married women --

Maria: Please, stop!

Aidan: Will you just back off? Back off. All right, that's it. Back off. We're coming through. I'm sorry.

Reporter: Mrs. Grey, you look surprised to see your husband.

Second reporter: Hey, Ed, if you and your wife split, who gets the kids?

Edmund: All right, guys, I can appreciate these questions, but do me a favor, a little professional courtesy, all right? Just a couple of minutes alone?

Reporter: All right, Mr. Grey.

Edmund: Thank you. Thank you.

Aidan: Let's go grab a cab.

Edmund: Are you hurt?

Maria: No. It's just a -- it's a scratch.

Edmund: Still, we should take you to Dr. Joe, get that checked out.

Aidan: Look, she's not going anywhere with you, Edmund.

Petey: Hi, Mom.

Opal: Oh, there you are, my little hunk of love. Where is your nanny, Kendall?

Petey: Beats me. Getting ready for the party, I guess.

Opal: Oh, well, isn't that a fine thing when she's being paid to watch you. Looks like they're really putting on the dog for this shindig tonight, huh?

Petey: Wall-to-wall babes, and I'm going to be there to help my superchicks kick Enchantment down to the bargain basement.

Opal: Oh, yeah? Beat Erica at the game she invented? Honey, you will be a long way out of short pants before that day comes around. Come on, let's get going.

Joni: Laurie, your dad letting you go to the party tonight?

Laurie: Why wouldn't he?

Joni: Well, he thought you were going with JR.

Laurie: JR and I are still broken up, which is the best thing for everyone.

Joni: Including Jamie?

Laurie: Jamie?

Joni: Come on, don't act so innocent. I saw you kiss Jamie at B.J.'s.

Laurie: That was no big deal.

Joni: Come on, Laurie. I'm not stupid.

Mia: Hey.

Jake: Hey.

Mia: Hi. Why aren't you wearing the sweater that I bought you?

Jake: Oh, by the way, thank you for that sweater. That was very nice. I just got off the phone with my folks.

Mia: Oh, yeah? Were they upset about us not making it to dinner?

Jake: I didn't tell them.

Mia: Why not?

Jake: Because, Mia, I want to blow off this party, all right? And I don't want you to go, either.

Simone: Ah, Greenlee, where were you just now?

Greenlee: Taking out the trash. We need to have a group huddle. Where's Kendall?

Simone: Oh, she's actually doing a little huddling of her own -- with Michael Cambias -- hmm, hmm, hmm '

Michael: Kendall, why did you run off?

Kendall: I told you once, I don't like being lied to.

Michael: I didn't lie to you.

Kendall: You never said that you met with Erica.

Michael: You didn't ask.

Kendall: And if I had?

Michael: It's no secret.

Kendall: Michael, you got together with my mother behind my back on your private plane. How could you do that to me?

Michael: Kendall, I didn't do anything. It was all Erica.

Bianca: It's not mom's birthday.

Jack: No.

Bianca: Valentine's Day was last week.

Jack: That's right.

Bianca: Did you guys have a fight?

Erica: Of course not. Thank you, Jack.

Bianca: Ok, then. I give up. Uncle Jack, why are you buying flowers for Mom?

Erica: Well, Uncle Jack doesn't need a reason, honey. Do you, Jack? Listen, honey, when you go down to the lab, check with Boyd and see exactly how far he's gotten on testing that new kiss-proof lip color?

Bianca: Mm-hmm. Shall I report back to you?

Erica: Absolutely. Send me an e-mail.

Bianca: Hmm. Ok. Sure thing. Uncle Jack, take care.

Jack: See you, kiddo.

Erica: What is wrong with you? Showing up here in the middle of the day with flowers, Jack?

Jack: Well, honey, I know you hate chocolates.

Erica: Have you lost your mind?

Jack: Probably, yes.

Erica: What do you want from me?

Jack: Why don't we discuss that over dinner and dessert? What do you say?

Erica: Oh, you are impossible.

Jack: So are you. We're made for each other.

Erica: Just how long do you plan to continue this -- this --

Jack: Until you get the idea that you're stuck with me for the next 30 or 40 years or so. Now, where shall we go?

Erica: I know where you should go.

Jack: That's a little hot for dinner there. What do you say we grab our coats and explore the possibilities?

Erica: You know something? I have work to do, and you have got to stop playing this silly game.

Jack: Erica, I guarantee you, this is no game.

Erica: Yes. Hold all calls. Do I need to remind you, Jack, that I am engaged to be married?

Jack: Do I need to remind you that we were otherwise engaged just a few days ago?

Erica: Why do you insist on bringing that up?

Jack: Why do you insist on acting like it never happened?

Erica: It was a mistake. It was a complete mistake. It was a burst of misspent passion that will never happen again.

Jack: Erica, you cannot undo what has been done, and you can't edit out the naughty bits just to ease your guilty conscience.

Erica: I don't feel guilty. I don't feel anything.

Jack: Really? That's not what you told me just before we made love, now, is it?

Erica: Why are you here? And how dare you come on to me like this after you accused me of using you to sabotage my relationship with another man.

Jack: Was I wrong?

Erica: Well, if that's true, if I am so fickle and so superficial, then why are you here? Do you want me to keep using you, Jack? Why don't you take me? Why don't you take me right now, right here on this desk?

Jack: Don't think that thought hasn't crossed my mind.

Erica: Oh, really? Then what's stopping you?

Jack: Greed. I'm greedy. I want it all. I want all of you, Erica, and I want you all to myself. I mean, Lord knows I have tried cutting you out of my life, and I fail miserably. So now I am ready to admit what I've known deep down all along.

Erica: What?

Jack: That there is an undeniable irresistible force that keeps pulling us together, and it's always there, no matter how we try to ignore it or starve it or pretend that it doesn't exist. And when the smoke clears and the dust settles, it always comes back to you and me, doesn't it? To us. So why don't we admit it? Why don't we admit that we're destined to be together?

[Phone rings]

Bianca: Boyd. Hey.

Boyd: Hey.

Bianca: I was looking for you.

Boyd: Yeah, well, they let me out about once a day to clean out my cage.

Bianca: Are you planning on going?

Boyd: I think I'll pass.

Bianca: You might want to rethink that decision and consider taking me as your date?

Mia: You know, I really thought that you got what this party was about, how much it means to me -- to all of us.

Jake: All of "us"? Who's "us"?

Mia: Jake, I have to be here for the launching of Fusion's first product line.

Jake: Mia, listen, we're talking about lip color here, not brain surgery.

Mia: Are you saying that what I do isn't important?

Jake: No. I'm just saying that the world's not going to come to a screeching halt if we don't go to this party tonight.

Mia: Oh, just because I'm not running around saving lives every day doesn't mean that I don't rank, ok?

Jake: That's not at all what I'm saying. What I'm trying to say is it just seems like we're getting lost in all the shuffle here.

Mia: I know. I'm sorry. I know, it's just really -- it's sweet that you miss me so much. It is.

Jake: I miss us. We're supposed to be engaged.

Mia: Come on, we are engaged.

Jake: Do you know my mom's been waiting for weeks to talk with us about making wedding plans?

Mia: Right, I know, I know. You know -- ok, well, I'll -- I'll call her. We'll do lunch on Friday. We'll do the tea room at Lacey's, and, I don't know -- then we can just paw through racks and racks of wedding dresses, ok? But tonight is very important to me and to Fusion, and I want you here with me.

Jake: As your fiancÚ or as your company's poster boy over there?

Mia: Both. I want every woman here to eat her heart out. So will you come?

Jake: Why is it so damn hard to say no to you?

Mia: Oh --

Jake: I will come.

Mia: Thank you. Thank you so much, and I promise you -- you have my word -- I will not leave your side for a single, single second.

Michael: Erica heard that I was in town and automatically assumed that I was setting the stage for some hostile takeover of Enchantment. And, of course, her suspicions are completely unfounded.

Kendall: Did you tell her that?

Michael: Well, I assured her that neither my father nor myself had any interest in acquiring Enchantment.

Kendall: And that was it? Did Erica ask you about anything else?

Michael: About?

Kendall: About the weather? What do you think? About me.

Michael: No, your name never came up.

Kendall: I don't believe that. I don't believe that for a minute. Erica never misses a chance to badmouth me. She issues a standard warning -- I'm a monster. Get to close to me, I'll ruin your life.

Michael: Why would your mother say such a thing about you?

Kendall: Because she hates me and because it's true.

Edmund: Look, I'm not here to force Maureen to do anything.

Maria: Aidan, it's ok. Really. Why are you here? Edmund, why are you here?

Edmund: I came here to apologize. I tried -- I tried to force you to be someone that you're not. Instead of bringing us closer, it drove us further apart.

Maria: Well, there was a lot to deal with for both of us.

Edmund: No, don't make excuses for me. I don't want to -- I'm not asking you to forgive me. What I did in the name of love had nothing to do with love. I mean, I wanted you to be the person that I needed you to be, the person that I knew from the past, and I thought if I -- if I tried -- if I tried real hard, I could get Maria to come back to me. And instead, I -- I put you through hell, and I'm ashamed, and I wasn't myself.

Maria: Well, maybe because I wasn't myself, I wasn't the woman that you needed me to be. But I tried, Edmund. I really did.

Edmund: I know you did.

Maria: I mean, I wanted to be that woman. I wanted to be a good mother and a good wife, a good person.

Edmund: You were always a good person.

Maria: Just not who you needed me to be.

Edmund: I loved Maria so much I never stopped believing that you could be her. And maybe deep down inside, you really are Maria. But not now. Maybe not ever. So I have to let Maria go. I have to let you go. So this is good-bye.

Maria: Good-bye?

Edmund: I'm cutting you loose. You have your freedom. That's what you wanted.

Maria: Yeah, but this is hardly the place to do this, Edmund.

Edmund: Well, taking you back to Wildwind's not really an option anymore. It's not your home. It was a prison. You escaped.

Maria: Ok, what about the kids?

Edmund: That reminds me. I have something for you. Maddie mad that for you for valentine's day.

Maria: Oh -- this is going to break her heart, Edmund. I can't just vanish from their lives. I mean, I did that once, and I really don't want to put them through that again. So, I mean, I'm their mother. Please, I love them.

Edmund: I know you do, and you're still going to be a part of their lives. I would never deny them or you that connection.

Maria: Ok, thank you. Thank you.

Edmund: But I think for now it's a good idea if we just give them some time to get used to the idea that you're not coming back home.

Maria: Do they know?

Edmund: We had a long talk. Listen -- you have to follow your heart. And Sam and Maddie may not understand that right now, but someday they will. None of this happened on purpose. Ok? We all just have to try to do what's best for everyone.

Aidan: That's awfully big of you, Edmund. But you have my word, I will take very good care of her.

Maria: No, no, wait. I can't -- I can't go.

Bianca: My mom doesn't see Kendall and Greenlee as a threat, but I do, and I want to get a feel for what we're up against.

Boyd: And what do I do while you're mixing cocktails with corporate espionage?

Bianca: Well, you could mingle with all the pretty girls, laugh, flirt, have a publicly outrageous good time.

Boyd: Yeah, that'll take about five minutes.

Bianca: Oh, come on, Boyd. You got to show Kendall what a prize she lost when she skipped your lunch date to be with another guy.

Boyd: When you put it that way -- ok, you got yourself a date.

Bianca: Great. I'll see you at Fusion at 8:00.

Boyd: Fine.

Erica: That's what you think we are? Destined to be together? How poetic. And how utterly egotistical.

Jack: Oh, come on, Erica. Look at it. I mean, we're together, we're apart, we're together, we're apart. You don't see a pattern here?

Erica: I have eyes for only one man, and that man is Chris.

Jack: So all that rolling around that we were doing in your living room the other night, that was what, an aberration?

Erica: That was --

Jack: It was inevitable, Erica, that's what it was.

Erica: It was my way of giving you comfort.

Jack: Oh --

Erica: Because of what you were going through with lily.

Jack: Comfort sex? Oh, well, that makes me feel so much better, and I'm sure that Chris will love to hear it was only comfort sex.

Erica: Don't you even think about telling Chris.

Jack: One candlelit dinner would buy my silence. So, what do you say I go confirm our reservations?

Erica: Oh, you are so sure of yourself.

Jack: Sweetheart, only when it comes to you. Opal. Look at you. Mmm, mmm. Love those earrings.

Opal: Well, thanks. What's got Jack so on top of the world?

Erica: No, he always thinks he's on top, trying to ruin my life, but he's not going to get away with it!

Mia: I promise no one will take you away from me.

Greenlee: Guess who that was.

Mia: Greenlee.

Jake: Hey.

Mia: When did you get back from New York?

Greenlee: Try to focus, Mia. That was Andrew Miller, the department store buyer that I schmoozed in Manhattan. And guess what.

Jake: Hi, Greenlee. It's so nice to see you, too.

Greenlee: Well, I hooked him. But it's going to be your job to reel him in. I want him glued to your side every single second tonight.

Mia: Me?

Jack: Wait, wait, wait. Why Mia? Why Mia? Why can't you have Simone be this guy's candy girl?

Mia: Well, Simone's not on the poster. See, my face is the face that's launching Fusionlips.

Greenlee: Oh, oh, oh, I showed Andrew your poster, and he completely flipped. He's already in lust with you.

Jack: What is this? Are you running a cosmetic company or an escort service?

Greenlee: Jake, Jake, we've been working really hard to get this company off the ground, ok? Power suits like Andy can give us a flying start.

Mia: Yes!

Jack: Well, I don't give a flying fig, Greenlee. You're not going to use Mia here to get your office your shelf space.

Mia: Oh --

Greenlee: Wait, time-out. Time-out. Jake, everyone knows that Mia's heart belongs to you, but her lips are on loan to Fusion just for tonight. Deal with it.

Jake: "Deal with it."

Mia: Oh, come on!

Jake: Gee.

Mia: Come on, it won't be that bad, all right? I promise you. And as soon as I can, I'll ditch the guy and I'll be yours for the rest of the night, ok?

Jake: Just ditch him. Just ditch the guy like that, huh?

Laurie: Joni, I swear to you, Jamie's kiss meant nothing to me.

Joni: If that were true, you would have told me about it.

Laurie: It's why I didn't tell you about it.

Joni: Or maybe you just didn't want me to know what kind of girl you are.

Laurie: What kind is that?

Joni: The kind that goes after other girls' boyfriends.

Michael: You'll ruin my life? Somehow I doubt that.

Kendall: Oh, stick around. I'll convert you.

Michael: You said Erica hates you.

Kendall: With a vengeance.

Michael: Why?

Kendall: She never wanted me. Not that she'd ever admit it to her adoring public, but if Erica had the power, she'd go back in time and make it so that I was never born.

Michael: Hey. Hey. No, she wouldn't. I wouldn't let her. No, no, the thought of never knowing you is just unthinkable.

Kendall: I'm not used to this.

Michael: What?

Kendall: This -- people being nice to me.

Michael: If they're not nice to you, it's because they don't know you. I highly doubt Erica does, and if she thinks she does, she's jealous of you.

Kendall: Ha! Erica, jealous of me? No, I don't think that's ever going to happen. No!

Michael: Hey, look at you. You're young, you're gorgeous, you're strong.

Kendall: I'm not so sure about the strong part.

Michael: Hmm, I am. In fact, you are one of the strongest women I have ever met. Kendall, do not for one second doubt your instincts or yourself. They've gotten you this far. Kendall, there is a voice that is sounding deep within you, that's been guiding you, urging you forward. Trust it.

Kendall: What about you?

Michael: Me? Oh. Everything's come really easily for me. Everything's been handed to me on a silver platter. Oh, when the best things of life get handed to you on a silver platter or they come too easily, it just -- no, then things start to lose their luster. You know, but you -- seeing how hard you've worked for everything you have is just giving me a new appreciation. It's made me realize how much I take for granted.

Kendall: Like what?

Michael: Like you.

Kendall: Me?

Michael: Mm-hmm. Well, I mean, I assume that even on our short acquaintance that somehow, some way you'll always be a major presence in my life.

Kendall: Well, that's extremely flattering.

Michael: Hmm. Well, it's presumptuous. I mean, after tonight, you're going to belong to the whole world. Hell, I'll be lucky to squeeze in a two-minute chat between your big business deals.

Kendall: Is that really how you see me, as this big powerhouse success, capable and resourceful and strong?

Michael: Kendall, Kendall, you, my dear, are anything you aspire to be. You are everything I admire. I really wish I could be with you tonight to watch you conquer the world.

Kendall: Well, I do have connections. I'm sure I could wrangle you a ring-side seat.

Michael: Hmm. Alas, business calls.

Kendall: For me, too.

Michael: Well --

Kendall: But no one -- no one has ever believed in me the way that you have. You should be there with me.

Michael: You listen to me, ok? You don't need me. You've come this far on your own. Enjoy the spotlight. You've more than earned it.

Kendall: Well, what if I want to share it with you?

Michael: Well, then, you shall when I whisk you away to my villa in Tuscany. You can tell me all about tonight's triumph, and any doubts you may have had about me will finally be put to bed.

Kendall: Mmm.

Jake: Well, we should go home and change.

Mia: Mm-hmm.

Jake: And whatever.

[Phone rings]

Jake: Hmm. Sorry. Jake Martin. Well, I'm not on call tonight. Well, you need to get who's ever next on rotation, ok? Well, nothing is more important than what I got going on tonight.

Jake: See you at 8:00, sharp.

Laurie: Joni, I wasn't going after Jamie. He kissed me.

Joni: And you kissed back.

Laurie: Like what, were you spying?

Joni: I was at B.J.'s getting takeout.

Laurie: And you're not even seeing Jamie anymore.

Joni: Like you're not seeing JR. So I guess he won't have a problem with you kissing his brother.

Laurie: You're not going to tell him.

Greenlee: Damn. Carlos. A last-minute snafu. We're going to need you to work security tonight, you know, check I.D.s, bounce crashers, things like that.

Simone: Greenlee, Greenlee, Carlos is already going to put be at the party tonight as my guest.

Greenlee: Simone, this party's about business, not about hooking up.

Simone: Would you shut it?

Greenlee: Look, do what you want. What did you do with the dresses?

Simone: Excuse me?

Greenlee: The dresses we're wearing tonight? You were supposed to pick them up at the boutique.

Simone: Oh, yeah, right, right, right. Yeah, I was just on my way out.

Greenlee: Simone, this is the biggest night of our lives. Don't make me kill you.

Simone: Don't mind Greenlee. Don't pay any attention to her. She's just jealous. I got to fly.

Greenlee: Who are these from?

Kendall: We were wondering the same thing. There's no name on the card.

Greenlee: "See you tonight."

Kendall: Looks like you got a mystery man. Well, check your e-mail. See if the mystery man left any more clues for you.

Computer Voice: You have mail.

Kendall: "You're the most beautiful flower in any bouquet, until tonight." Don't look now, but you got a date. Mm-hmm.

Opal: Well, honey, what do you mean? How is Jack ruining your life?

Erica: Opal, did we have an appointment or something? Because I am just swamped.

Opal: Oh, well, excusez-moi, Your Highness. I didn't know it was necessary to clear an audience with the queen.

Erica: I'm sorry.

Opal: You having a bad day?

Erica: Well, I wasn't until -- look, was there something you wanted?

Opal: Well, yeah. I was going to tell you there's a lot of talk around the Glamorama about this big wingding that Fusion cosmetics is throwing.

Erica: Yeah, that.

Opal: Yeah, so a gal gave me an invite, and I figured maybe I'd mosey on over there, you know, do my mata hari thing and kind of scope out some of their beauty secrets.

Erica: Their only secret is how they're going to stay in business.

Opal: Well --

Erica: And the truth is if I were going to send somebody over there to sneak around, I'd probably have to send somebody a little less conspicuous.

Opal: What? Are you implying that I'm not dressed for the part?

Erica: Well, the look for the evening will be urban chic, not urban blight.

Opal: Well, I'll have you know that this outfit is a designer original.

Erica: Oh, it's original, all right.

[Buzzer]

Erica: Yes. Oh, Opal, sorry. I have to take this.

Opal: Oh, rats. I was hoping to stick around for a few more insults.

Erica: I'll call you later.

Opal: Yeah, right.

Opal: Urban blight. Hmm. I'll show her a thing or three.

Erica: I will need those numbers on my desk no later than tomorrow. No excuses. Just do it! Kristi, I want you to hold all calls. I want you to hold everybody outside my office. No one is to get in here. Do you understand me? Because if anybody gets by you, Kristi, you're fired.

Maria: Aidan, can I -- can I just have a minute, please, with Edmund?

Aidan: Ok. I'll go get the bags.

Maria: Now, what's -- what's really going on here, Edmund? I mean, what's really happening?

Edmund: What do you mean?

Maria: Well, you just show up here at the airport and start apologizing and bowing out of my life and just surrendering me to Aidan. It just all seems a little too easy.

Edmund: "Easy"? Is that how you really see it? You think it's easy for me to say good-bye to you? Again? Knowing that this is final, knowing that there's no second chance, no hope, no going back to the way we were? You think it's easy to sit our children down and tell them that mommy's never coming home?

Maria: I don't want to say good-bye to them. I don't ever want to say good-bye to them, Edmund.

Edmund: Just to me. You see -- you see, I remember us. I remember what we had and what we lost. Nothing about this is easy. I love you. And I love you so -- so -- I love you so much I have to let you go.

Maria: I know how much you loved Maria. And I wish I could be her for you, but I can't. I wouldn't even know how to try. And -- I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, Edmund.

Edmund: So -- there's just one more thing. And then we're finished.

Joni: Well, you and JR aren't even together. Why would you care if I told him? And plus, you said the kiss meant nothing.

Laurie: It was nothing.

Joni: We'll let JR be the judge of that.

Greenlee: You know, the cyberstalking thing is one thing, but these flowers are for real. This guy is for real. Damn it, his e-mail address is still blocked. I know nothing about this whoever.

Kendall: Oh, you know he's going to be at the party tonight.

Greenlee: The party. Where's the guest list? Hey, you know, I know people by name, but not by face. He must be one of them.

Kendall: Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Kristi: Mr. Montgomery --

Jack: Sweetheart, you're not even dressed. We're going to be late for dinner.

Erica: Kristi!

Kristi: Miss Kane, I am so sorry. I told Mr. Montgomery you didn't want to be disturbed.

Jack: It's all right, Kristi. Ms. Kane knows I never take no for an answer.

Chris: What was the question? Someone want to tell me what I walked in on?

Maria: Is this what I think it is? What is it?

Edmund: It's a custody agreement, insuring that you'll always free access to our children. But as far as you and me are concerned -- ahem -- we're done. You're free.

On the next "All My Children" --

Kendall: You've been checking your e-mail every 30 seconds, hoping for your internet Romeo.

Aidan: I'm debating. Do I thank you, or do I put your head through a wall?

Simone: Please get me out of here.

Chris: You two share some special thing. So why don't you just go for it?
