>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Maggie: You're going to let my throat get cut just because you're afraid to disappoint your mother?

Tad: Come here often?

Erica: Go with the contraction. Come on, push! It's coming now!

Maddie: When will you come get me, Daddy.

Regina: Studying for finals?

Maggie: Trying to.

Regina: Yeah? What's the point?

Maggie: Excuse me?

Regina: It's out.

Maggie: "Out"?

Regina: Everybody knows Prof. Stevens busted you for cheating on the O. Chem midterm.

Maggie: And everyone thinks it's true, right?

Regina: Everyone except me.

Maggie: Since when have you been on my side?

Regina: Since I saw what happened. Henry cheated, not you.

Lee: Problems?

Henry: I blew it.

Lee: Everything is a big drama when you're young and in love, but it'll pass.

Henry: No, it won't.

Alma: Your favorite.

Henry: Oh, no, I'm not hungry.

Alma: Eat. It'll help you study better.

Lee: You want to tell me about it?

Henry: Uncle Lee, I have to choose between Mom and Maggie.

Tad: Hey, Liza. Is this ok?

Lee: Sure.

Tad: Thank you. Here, Mom.

Ruth: Thank you. Oh, I am so glad that you had time to have dinner with your mother.

Tad: Well, my mother wouldn't take no for an answer.

Ruth: Well, you do have to eat.

Tad: Mom, I still got 30 pounds of meat loaf and chili and lasagna in my refrigerator, thanks.

Ruth: All right, all right. Yes, I know we overdid the food, but, honey, we just didn't want you to be alone, not on the anniversary of Dixieís passing.

Tad: I know, and the truth is I love you for it. I doubt I would have made it through this last year if it weren't for all of you and your meat loaf. So you're forgiven.

Ruth: Well, listen, when the leftovers are gone, I do hope that you'll get out more.

Tad: Mom, would you stop? You're like -- you're like Dad. You're broken records. I get out all the time. I get out plenty. Hey, gorgeous.

Simone: Hey.

Tad: Hey.

Simone: Hi.

Tad: Oh, I'm sorry. Forgive me. This is my mother. This is Simone.

Simone: Oh, it's a pleasure to meet you. So, how's the outside treating you?

Tad: Obviously not as nice as it's treating you.

Simone: Oh.

Tad: Did you survive our adventure?

Simone: Actually, the handcuffs were a little tighter than normal --

Tad: Aw.

Simone: But, you know, I'm back in my game. Actually, Carlos is who I'm worried about.

Tad: Yeah, me, too. Are you going to go to the hearing?

Simone: Oh, I wouldn't miss it. Are you going to be there?

Tad: Definitely.

Simone: Ok, good. It was such a nice pleasure to meet you.

Ruth: Thank you.

Simone: Ciao, baby.

Tad: Ciao.

Ruth: Ahem.

Tad: Don't ask.

Ruth: I don't want to know.

Simone: I am absolutely psyched about this new ad campaign. My pitch is going to knock you dead. Unless you would rather have me wait.

Liza: Mia?

Mia: No, no.

Liza: Actually, you know, you can go home --

Mia: I'm fine. I'm good. I'm good. Really.

Simone: You know, it makes me feel like I'm the only one that's into this. Obviously, Greenlee and Kendall are late, and Mia might as well be.

Mia: Look, Simone, I'm really sorry, but Iím just not focused today.

Mia: Really? No kidding?

Liza: Simone, lay off. She was in a lot of danger last night. She could have been killed.

Simone: Oh, my God. What happened?

Mia: I surprised this maniac at Edmundís house.

Liza: Who had a gun.

Simone: Oh, my God! A gun?

Mia: Yeah. I'm only here right now because Edmund saved my life.

Simone: Oh, my -- are you sure that you're all right?

Mia: How can I be when the man who wants to kill Maddie and Edmund is still out there?

[Maddie hums]

Aidan: Every time Edmund speaks to Maddie, he's always asked to speak to one of us, but not this time. It doesn't make sense. It doesn't make any sense.

Maria: Maybe he just didn't have anything to report. I don't know. When was the last time you colored? Feel like coloring?

Aidan: Yeah. Wow. What a beautiful picture.

Maria: It's a work of art.

Maddie: Thanks.

Maria: It's gorgeous.

Aidan: Talented. So, when you spoke to your daddy, what did you speak to him about?

Maddie: His sore throat. That's why Iím making him this card.

Aidan: Did you speak to him about anything else, like -- like the boat?

Maddie: I told him boats are called shes, but "Fidelity" doesn't sound much like a girl's name, does it?

Maria: Did you tell him the name of the boat?

Maddie: I think so.

Aidan: Did you speak to your daddy about anything else?

Maddie: He promised he'd come get me soon.

Maria: Aidan, you don't -- you don't think --

[noise]

Maddie: What's happening?

Maria: Oh, just -- I thought that was your stomach growling. That was so loud. My goodness.

Aidan: The boat is moving. Someone's moving the boat.

Maggie: You saw Henry copy off my exam?

Regina: I was sitting right behind you. I saw everything.

Maggie: Are you going to tell Prof. Stevens?

Regina: That's not my call.

Maggie: You're going to protect him?

Regina: Isn't that what you're doing?

Maggie: No, I'm waiting for him to come forward.

Regina: Well, don't hold your breath.

Maggie: What is that supposed to mean?

Regina: I saw the whole thing. You slid your exam over so Henry could crib the answers. You're in this, too.

Maggie: Ok, what do you want, Regina?

Regina: Henry couldn't have cheated without your help.

Maggie: I wanted to help him, ok? He's under a lot of pressure, but I know that he will come through and do the right thing.

Regina: And if he doesn't?

Maggie: He will.

Regina: Ok, here's a thought. Why don't you do the right thing? If you love Henry so much, take the fall for him.

Lee: Enjoy.

Tad: Thank you, Lee.

Ruth: Thank you.

Lee: Why do you have to choose between your girlfriend and your mother? Did Alma stir things up between you and Maggie?

Henry: She doesn't even like Maggie, Uncle Lee.

Lee: Well, this isn't news.

Henry: Yeah, I know, but it's just -- I made my G.P.A. more important than Maggie.

Lee: Isn't that a little simplistic? You're crazy about each other. There has got to be a way for you to --

henry: No, there's not, ok? It's too late. Hey, at least Mom will be happy, right? I can go back to being robo-student.

Lee: But you'll be miserable. That's not what your mother wants.

Henry: No, she wants me to be a doctor, no matter what.

Lee: Alma wants what's best for you.

Henry: No, even if she doesn't approve of what I think is best for me?

Lee: You can't let her rule your life.

Henry: But she sacrificed everything for me.

Lee: She chose to make those sacrifices. You don't owe her for that.

Henry: Look, I can't let her down.

Lee: How much better will your life be if you're alone? It's a lot harder to be happy than it is to be a doctor.

Alma: Let him study, Lee.

Henry: This is nuts.

Henry: Excuse me.

Simone: I cannot believe that you tangled up with a killer -- on crutches.

Mia: If it wasn't for Edmund, I wouldn't --

Simone: He saved her life.

Greenlee: A killer?

Mia: The guy who attacked me is still after Maddie and anyone who gets in his way.

Kendall: Why are you even here?

Greenlee: Yeah, go be with Edmund, ok? We can handle things.

Mia: He told me to just wait for him to call, but I can't stay home. I'll go crazy.

Liza: Well, the police should know something soon.

Mia: Yeah.

Liza: They'll catch him.

Kendall: Well, I know one psycho who's rotting in jail right now.

Liza: Who?

Kendall: Michael Cambias.

Simone: Get out.

Mia: You got Michael arrested?

Greenlee: Yeah. And get this -- she did it with Bianca and Ericaís help.

Liza: I'm sorry, did I hear right? Did you say with Ericaís help?

Kendall: That's right. You heard right. We brought him down together at a press conference.

Simone: Wow.

Greenlee: With the cameras rolling. It was magic.

Kendall: Yes, you can catch Michaelís total humiliation on the 6:00 news.

Simone: Oh, I got to tape that.

Kendall: So a toast -- to bad guys going down.

Simone: Yes, and to the sexiest man on the planet.

Greenlee: Are we're toasting to your latest conquest?

Simone: No, it's our new ad campaign and the reason why I called this meeting. Does anyone remember?

Greenlee: I remember. I just live to hassle you.

Simone: Oh, I love that.

Liza: Well, I would like to hear it.

Simone: Good. But are you in the mood for this, Mia?

Mia: Yeah. Go ahead. Try me.

Simone: You sure?

Mia: Yes.

Simone: Ok. So, we all agree that sexy sells, right? And then we all saw what happened when Carlos pitched our product. Our phones went berserk, and we landed in the best department stores in New York.

Mia: Because of a stunt. Once the hype dies down, Fusion could go down with it.

Kendall: Mia's right, though. We have it going now, but how do we keep it?

Simone: We give them what they want. The hottest guy to sell the coolest product in the business.

Kendall: Ok, but we don't have Carlos.

Simone: Richie, get -- we actually have something better.

Liza: What?

Simone: Up high, please. Voila!

Flanders: It won't be long now, little girl. It won't be long now.

Edmund: Damn it! The boat's gone.

Derek: We don't know that for sure.

Edmund: The shooter has got them, Derek. I know it.

Derek: Look, maybe -- maybe Aidan and Maureen just went off for some kind of a --

Edmund: What, a pleasure cruise? Come on! They'd have answered the phone. The plan was to stay right here.

Derek: All right, look, until we reach them, we don't jump to any conclusions.

Edmund: The killer's got my phone, Derek, and the boat's gone. Maybe Maddie tried to call me, he answered --

Derek: All right, look, even if that is remotely true, even if -- maybe Aidan got wind of the danger, and he was able to cast off before the guy could --

Edmund: Would you call the Coast Guard or something?

Derek: All right, all right. But, look, Iím willing to put money on Aidan that he's going to keep Maureen and Maddie safe.

Edmund: I hope you're right.

Maria: Aidan? Aidan?

Maddie: What's happening?

Maria: You know what, honey? Why don't -- let's have you finish your card to Daddy. We'll have you sit right here, ok? Hop up in there.

Maddie: But I want to see.

Maria: No, I know, but I want you to sit here and finish the card, all right, for me, please?

Maddie: All right.

Maria: Good girl. You are such a good girl. Do you think that we can jump, swim?

Aidan: I don't know. Take a look. Take a look.

Maria: My God, how did we get this far away from land? What happened?

Aidan: Must have cut our dock lines. We've been drifting before he started the engines.

Maria: Ok, is there any chance that this is not him? Is there a chance that -- I don't know -- maybe it's Adamís captain, it's --

Aidan: This is definitely the shooter. I swear it. He must have got hold of Edmundís cell phone somehow and tricked Maddie into --

Maria: My God, what do we do? What do we do?

Aidan: You don't do anything. You stay here with Maddie. I'm going to go sort this out.

Maria: No, no, no, no, no. I don't want us to split up.

Aidan: We don't know what we're up against, ok? I'm not going to take a chance and put you two in danger.

Maria: Well, what about you? What if something happens to you?

Aidan: This is what I do, Maureen, ok? Let me do it.

Maria: If this guy comes to the door, I don't know what to do.

Aidan: I'm not going to leave you helpless. I want you to take this.

Maria: Oh, Aidan. I don't even know how to use that.

Aidan: Everything's fine. I'll tell you how to do it. This is the safety. You put it to off. That's on. That's to shoot. Pull the trigger. It's as simple as that. You understand?

Maria: Ok, yeah. Yeah, I understand. I'll -- I'll use it if I have to. I will.

Aidan: There are 12 bullets. That means you've got 12 shots.

Maria: Ok.

Aidan: Lock the door after me and barricade yourself in. The safety's on.

Maria: Please, please, please be careful, Aidan.

Aidan: I will.

Maria: My God, I love you.

Aidan: I love you, too. I'll be back before anyone else can walk up.

Maria: Ok. We'll be waiting for you.

Maria: Oh, my God. God, please give him strength. And please protect my daughter.

Maggie: You know, you really are a piece of work, Regina.

Regina: Why shouldn't you take the blame for cheating? You've already been busted. There's no reason you both should go down.

Maggie: Well, we can explain --

Regina: Oh, what, that you're in love?

Maggie: What I mean is Henry knew those answers, ok? He studied. He just froze.

Regina: Oh, and there you were, the little helpmate? And because your answers were the same, Prof. Stevens just assumed that you were the one who copied from him, right?

Maggie: Well, what do you expect? He is the smartest guy in class.

Regina: Yeah, he is, and he deserves to be a doctor.

Maggie: Yeah? Well, so do I.

Regina: Look, I've known Henry since we were in preschool, and --

Maggie: That doesn't mean you know him.

Regina: What Mrs. Chin wants Henry wants.

Maggie: Henry wants a lot more, Regina.

Regina: Ok, well, I hate to break this to you, but if you think thatHhenry is going to throw away his future for you, you're wrong.

Maggie: Henry's future is in Henry's hands, not his mother or mine, and that's why he will come forward with the truth -- for himself, if not for me.

Regina: How totally naive are you?

Maggie: Why? Because I believe in him?

Regina: Because you think that you're more important than something he's worked for his entire life.

Maggie: There is no way Henry would screw me over to get ahead. Ok? He's not that type of guy.

Regina: What if he is?

Maggie: Why are you all up in my business, anyway?

Regina: I don't want to see Henry get hurt.

Maggie: Henry or his career? If you think that's all he's about, then you're wrong.

Regina: If you're so sure Henry doesn't care about being a doctor, turn him in.

Simone: Oh, thank you, Rich. Don't you love it?

Mia: I don't get it.

Simone: Of course you donít. Fusion is going to launch a nationwide search for the sexiest man on the planet.

Kendall: So you can pick up guys from coast to coast and write it off?

Greenlee: A contest? Why not just hire a spokes-hunk?

Simone: Because a contest will get our customer base involved, and the more women that we get involved in the search --

Mia: The more products Fusion sells.

Simone: Oh, you're catching on.

Liza: Makes sense.

Kendall: Mm-hmm. So, how does it work?

Simone: Well, I still have a few kinks to work out, actually.

Liza: You know, you make me really nervous when you talk about kinks.

Simone: Ok, ok. But you have to admit, this is an attention grabber. And it's legal -- in all 50 states.

Greenlee: Hallelujah!

Simone: Ok, ok. So, any questions?

Mia: Yeah. Where did the money come from for the banner?

Simone: Uh -- petty cash.

Mia: Simone, that is our reserve. Please don't tell me you blew it all on a sign. Please.

Simone: No. I bought a tiki hut, too.

Greenlee: Can I strangle her?

Kendall: Oh, no.

Mia: Return it -- now.

Simone: I can't, ok? It's already set up at the festival that we're having right now at the beach. Besides, Kendall here hocked her swamp girl necklace for 15 grand and told us to fold it into the company, right?

Kendall: That's -- yeah, that's true. She's right.

Liza: Is this the local vendor festival that's going on at the beach boardwalk?

Simone: Yes, yes, yes.

Liza: Yes, I read about this. There's a lot of local companies that have rented space to market their products.

Simone: Yes, and we're going to be the only one with a sexy man contest.

Mia: And a tiki hut.

Simone: Yeah. We can't miss. Sun, surf, hunks, us. Oh, what better way to ride our buzz to the national recognition of the world? Huh? Huh? What do you say?

Greenlee: Well, rounding up hotties on the beach definitely kick-starts the campaign.

Liza: Wait, wait. Simone, are you really sure this isn't going to be some sort of cheesy himbos on parade?

Simone: Well, cheesy himbos aren't sexy. See, we're going for the real thing. That's what women want. That's what they're going to respond to.

Kendall: That's true. I mean, look at Carlos and what happened with that product.

Simone: Exactly.

Kendall: I say we go for it, you guys.

Mia: Ok. I'm in.

Simone: Good.

Mia: What do you think, Liza?

Liza: Well, hey, if Fusion's going to continue to survive, we have to do something radical, and this is definitely radical.

Kendall: Yeah.

Simone: And legal.

Maddie: Why are doing this?

Maria: Well, we're doing it because when I get bored, I like to rearrange furniture. That's why.

Maddie: You're not bored, Mommy, you're scared.

Maria: Yeah, well, I'm not as scared when I have you. And we've got St. Christopher, too, to keep us safe.

Maddie: But I'm scared, too.

Maria: I know, sweetie. You know what we're going to do, then? Let's think happy thoughts. Happy, happy thoughts.

Maddie: Like what?

Maria: Um -- like the most amazing day of my life.

Maddie: What was it?

Maria: It was when you were born.

Maddie: Really?

Maria: Yeah. Really. Did you know that you were born in a cabin? And you know what else?

Maddie: What?

Maria: When you were first born, we thought you were a boy.

Maddie: A boy? No way!

Maria: Yeah. We did, but then I saw you. Saw my beautiful baby girl. Then I knew what perfect happiness was.

Maddie: Mommy?

Maria: Hmm?

Maddie: Do you remember me being born? Do you really remember?

Maria: Yeah, I do.

Maddie: Yay!

[Footsteps]

Maria: Shh, shh, shh.

Mia: Sponsoring the sexiest guy contest is a radical marketing idea, but is it doable?

Simone: Oh, of course it is.

Kendall: How?

Simone: Trust me. Am I not the mistress of buzz? I mean, come on. Have I ever let any of you down? I mean, besides the bail thing.

Mia: Bail things -- plural.

Greenlee: I agree with Simone. I mean, her ideas are unorthodox, but they're effective. I mean, we've gotten this far on guerrilla marketing.

Liza: And you illegally hijacking the airwaves.

Mia: Well, if we're going to keep Fusion alive, then we have to go national and we have to do it in a big way.

Simone: And what's bigger than letting our customers choose their dream hunk?

Kendall: Mm-hmm, and buying our goodies in the process.

Simone: Exactly, exactly, exactly.

Liza: Simone, you know, "sexy" is a big word. What's your angle?

Simone: I'll show you. I'll be right back.

Greenlee: Oh, God.

Simone: Excuse me. Tad, would you mind --

Tad: Be interested in being Fusion's sexiest man alive? Sure. Take down this sign. Your prayers are answered.

Simone: Oh. Self-confidence is sexy, especially on you. Could I borrow your son for just a moment?

Ruth: Be my guest.

Simone: Oh, thanks. Exhibit A, ladies. Tad is the total package. Yes, he's intelligent, witty, dynamic --

Tad: With money.

Simone: Yeah.

Liza: And a big ego.

Tad: She calls it "self-confidence."

Liza: Uh-huh. I've known you for two decades. She hasn't.

Simone: Do you see what I'm talking about here? Do you see the breakout potential? Hmm?

Liza: Simone -- Simone, be careful, ok, because Tad still has to get his head through that door.

Maggie: Turn Henry in? Um -- no. That's not an option.

Regina: You're so concerned about being wrongly accused, why not save yourself?

Maggie: And to hell with Henry?

Regina: He'll survive, no matter what happens. He knows who his real friends are.

Maggie: Oh. Ok, I get it now. This is all about you wanting Henry. You figure if I turn him in, then he'll hate me forever and then you'll be his "real friend."

Regina: Ok, that's not true.

Maggie: Please save it. You have been against us since the first day, and I don't think it's about you wanting him. I think it's about, you know, me not being Chinese.

Regina: You're not right for Henry.

Maggie: Oh, and you are?

Regina: We were just talking about you.

Henry: Do you have some time?

Maggie: Yeah, sure.

Regina: I'm going. Call me if you need anything.

Henry: What was that about?

Maggie: It doesn't matter. What matters is that you're here. And I know why you're here -- to do the right thing and come forward and tell the truth. And I will be beside you. I am so proud of you, Henry.

Derek: The Coast Guard has put a chopper in the air.

Edmund: Ok, so now what do we do? Wait?

Derek: That's exactly what we're going to do. I want you out of the mix, Edmund.

Edmund: Derek, come on. My daughter's life is on the line. I got to do something.

Derek: You already tried that, and you nearly got yourself killed -- and me and your girlfriend. I am sorry, Edmund. I'm not letting you out of my sight.

Edmund: Come on, give me your cell phone. Let me hire a boat. We'll go after him.

Derek: Look, we don't even know that this thug is on the boat.

Edmund: Ok, ok, ok, ok. Ok, he has my cell phone, all right? So let me call him. Maybe he'll answer. Maybe I can buy him off. Maybe I can buy some time. I can't get killed doing that, can I? Come on, Derek.

Derek: All right. It's worth a try.

[Phone rings]

Derek: Damn!

Edmund: He's on the boat --

[Ring]

Edmund: And he's got Maddie.

Maria: Ok, honey, you know what we're going to do? We're going to hide, all right? I want you to hide. For me, ok?

Maddie: I don't want to!

Maria: I know you don't, sweetie, but we're just going to make sure it's like a game. We're going to pretend like we're playing a game, all right? I want you to hide in here. You're going to hide behind this door, all right, and no matter what happens, I don't want you to come out, no matter what happens and no matter what you hear. Do you understand me?

Maddie: But, Mommy --

Maria: I know, sweetie. You be my brave girl. You're such a brave girl.

[Banging]

Maria: I love you. Hide right back in here. Don't move. Be quiet, ok? Shh, shh. Who's there?

Maria: Go away! I mean it! Get out of here! Get out of here now! I mean it!

[Maria screams]

Flanders: Where is she? Where's the kid?

Henry: I want to make things right. I really do.

Maggie: Ok, let's go. We'll go -- we'll go find Prof. Stevens right now.

Henry: I can't let my mother down.

Maggie: Your mother? Your mother -- Henry, this doesn't have anything to do with your mother. This has to do with you coming forward and telling the truth.

Henry: But if I come clean about cheating, I wreck the future that my mom gave up everything for.

Maggie: But you can wreck my future?

Henry: No, you don't understand.

Maggie: Yeah, I do -- you are a coward.

Henry: Look, if Iím expelled, it'll kill my mom.

Maggie: But it's ok if Iím expelled?

Henry: Look, I wish it didn't have to be like this. I wish I could come --

Maggie: You could if you wanted to, if you loved me as much as you say you --

henry: Look, I do love you.

Maggie: Then tell the truth and be the man that I know you are.

Henry: I'm the man my mother wants me to be, and I'll be the doctor she dreams of. Maybe you'd understand if --

Maggie: Because -- if I were Chinese? What, you guys get some special dispensation? Think again.

Henry: No, it's different.

Maggie: No, you know what? I'm leaving.

Henry: Look, I don't want to lose you, Maggie.

Maggie: It's too late.

Henry: Look, there's a way we can get through this together.

Simone: Tad is the perfect example of what our sexiest man contest is all about.

Tad: Huh? Huh?

Simone: He is proof that we are not limited to hotties with six-pack abs.

Tad: Yeah, especially when you can get a guy with the whole keg, right?

Simone: What I mean is there are all kinds of sexy.

Mia: Like Edmund. He's sexy.

Simone: Right. And brains are sexy. You know, I don't know anyone that wouldn't want to be in Boydís lab.

Greenlee: Chemistry is really sexy.

Simone: Yes.

Liza: So is a guy who takes his mom to lunch.

Tad: Don't help me.

Kendall: And I'll tell you what isn't sexy -- an egomaniac on a power trip who thinks he can use women to get what he wants and then he just --

Greenlee: A guy who's behind bars. It's over, Kendall, ok? You trumped the loser. So what now?

Simone: Ok. We go to the beach. Yes!

Kendall: And do what?

Simone: Test our campaign. You know, we put our contest out there, see what kind of response we get. If it's a hit, we go national. If it's not, then we're out a little petty cash.

Mia: And we are stuck with a tiki hut.

Liza: Well, we have a lot riding on this. This could either put Fusion on the map, or it could bury us.

Greenlee: We'll make it work, Liza.

Kendall: Yeah, we've busted our butt on this company. There's no way we're letting it go down. You know what, Simone, honey? We're in.

Simone: Yes! That's great! Ok, so Iíve got beachwear for everyone and plenty of SPF, so all I need you to do is bring your lipsticks.

Greenlee: Why?

Simone: That's a surprise. So, are we set?

Liza: I think I'm going to stay here, and so will Mia.

Simone: Oh, yeah.

Mia: Oh, no, listen, I'm fine. I'm good.

Kendall: No, you stay. Stay put. We'll take care of this. We've got it covered.

Mia: Ok. Thank you, guys. Thank you. I would like to check on Edmund.

Liza: Good, then it's settled.

Simone: Ok, well, let's get a move on. We will meet back up at Fusion, and you will have a full report. Ok. Ooh, let's go.

Mia: Good luck.

Simone: Bye!

Liza: I don't know why do I get a queasy, uneasy feeling.

Tad: Here. You're probably going to need this.

Liza: What's that for?

Tad: Bail money.

Flanders: Where is the little girl?

Maria: Get out of here! Get the hell out of here! She's -- there's nobody here!

Flanders: Where's the kid?

Maria: It's just me here! There is no kid!

Flanders: Oh, really? You see this? You see this little pink hair thing? Well, that tells me different.

Maria: That's mine.

Flanders: Don't you lie to me.

Maria: I'm not lying to you! It is just me -- it's me and my fiancť here, and that is it! And he just went to go get help, all right, so that's --

Flanders: No, I'm afraid not. I'm afraid not. That little scrawny limey's not helping anybody.

Maria: What did you do to him? Is he ok?

Flanders: He got in the way, just like you. Now, stop screwing around and tell me where the girl is!

Maria: Look, you've got this wrong. I'm telling you --

Flanders: No, I think I got it all right. She told me she was on a big, fancy yacht.

Maria: There's, like, a thousand yachts in this marina.

Flanders: No, this is the yacht! All right, Maddie. Olly olly oxen free, Maddie! Come on out and play!

Maria: Look, I know -- I know we can make some sort of a deal. She doesn't even remember anything. She's just a little girl.

Flanders: No, I'm afraid not, Lady. You already saw me, too.

Maria: She's scared to death, and she doesn't remember anything. I can make sure that she doesn't say anything to the cops when she --

Flanders: Yeah, like I trust you.

Maria: She won't say anything to the cops. No one's going to say anything.

Flanders: Right. Maddie, I had enough. Maddie, come on out so you can watch your mommy turn into one of your little art projects -- splattered all over the floor.

Maria: No!

Maddie: Don't hurt my mommy!

Flanders: Ah! Whoa! You're a tough one, aren't you, little girl?

Maria: No, no, no! Don't -- Iím telling you, please, have mercy. She's a little girl.

Maddie: Go away!

Maria: I can swear to you that she's not going to say anything to anybody. Ok? No, no!

Maddie: You're bad! You shot a man!

Maria: Maddie, no, no, no!

Maddie: You shot a man!

Maria: Maddie, Maddie! No, no, no! I swear she's not going to say that to anybody else! I promise. Look, she's a little girl. She's doesn't deserve this --

Flanders: I have to do this. Now, if it makes you feel any better, I'll take the both of you out at the same time. Now move! Move! And stop moving around, you! Do you hear me?

Maddie: Yes!

Flanders: All right, then!

Henry: Look, I know we're in a mess, ok, but there is another way out if you still love me.

Maggie: I can't have this conversation with you.

Henry: Wait -- no, Maggie, listen to me. Stop. Listen. For the first time in my entire life, when I look into the future, I see what I want -- not want my mother expects, but what I want -- and that's to have you by my side.

Maggie: Henry, this --

henry: I want to take care of you.

Maggie: I can take care of myself.

Henry: Yeah, I know you can. But if you let me, I will devote the rest of my life to making this up to you, to making you as happy as you've made me.

Maggie: I can't do this. I --

Henry: Marry me, Maggie. Marry me.

Joe: Sorry I'm late. Did I miss anything?

Ruth: Well, did you know that your son --

Joe: Thank you.

Ruth: Our Tad, has been in jail again?

Tad: Ma.

Joe: Well, that's one way to get out of the house.

Tad: See? Again with getting out of the house.

Ruth: Egg roll, dear?

Joe: Ok, thank you. Thank you.

Tad: Did you see the way she looked at me?
