>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Anna: I don't know what chance Leora has without this surgery.

David: Well, I hope you don't regret it, Anna.

Jack: Michael Cambias, you're under arrest.

Michael: This is your doing. You stole those records off my computer.

Kendall: Little airhead me?

Lena: I love you.

Bianca: Don't lie to me.

Maria: Oh, my God. Aidan!

Anna: Oh, you can tell she's feeling so much better now that infection's gone, because look at her eyes. They're so bright, and she's smiling. Here.

David: We shouldn't even be here.

Anna: Don't start.

David: This place is crawling with germs.

Anna: We're doing just fine. Leave that.

David: Anna, she just got over an infection. The last thing she needs is another one.

Anna: Well, what are you going to do, smother her with a blanket? Joe wants to take a look at her to see if she's --

David: You know how I feel about this surgery.

Anna: Oh, my Lord. We're not having this argument again. You know, you're either with me on this or you're not.

David: You know, I wish it were that simple.

Anna: If you're not, then you should go, now.

Bianca: What do you think you're doing?

[keys rattle]

[door opens]

Michael: If you're here to gloat, don't bother. So, what, you're just going to stand there all day?

Kendall: I came here because I want something, and I'm not leaving until I get it.

[sirens]

Derek: Talk to me. Was anybody still on the yacht? We know there were two people still onboard.

Maria: Aidan. Oh, my God.

Derek: Call Center City, see if we can some firefighters with additional equipment. I don't want the divers near the area until the fire's under control. Go.

Maria: Aidan. Oh, my God.

Edmund: No, no --

Maria: No, I've got to go do something! I can't just let him die, Edmund!

Maddie: Mommy!

Maria: Oh, baby.

Maddie: Don't go, please!

Bianca: What are you trying to steal now?

Lena: I'm just here because --

Jack: She's here because I invited her to come here.

Bianca: Uncle Jack?

Lena: Your uncle promised me immunity if I testify against Michael.

Bianca: Well, I'm not surprised. You'll do anything to get what you want -- anything. You used me, and now you're selling out Michael the first chance you get? Must be very difficult to keep all of your lies in order.

Lena: I never lied to you about how I feel.

Bianca: You know what uncle Jack, I'll see you later.

Lena: No, donít. I'll go.

Jack: I tell you what, why don't you both stay here. I have an appointment with Dr. Martin.

Bianca: Uncle Jack --

Jack: Please, talk to her. I think you need to. Ms. Kundera, we'll pick this up later.

Bianca: Uncle Jack, wait.

[Michael chuckles]

Michael: Give it up, Kendall. I won't be here long. And let your mother know she hasn't seen the last of me.

Kendall: Hmm. Your father might be interested to hear that since he and Erica bonded so strongly over taking you out.

Michael: You know I want nothing to do with him. As far as I'm concerned, my father's dead.

Kendall: Hmm. You only wish you could feel that way.

Michael: Oh, I see. So you think you have my relationship with my father all figured out, is that it?

Kendall: I know your whole quest for Enchantment was about gaining his acceptance, making him proud, proving to him that you're just as good as your brother was. Yep, that's right. I read that letter -- the one that your father sent you at boarding school, the one you kept all these years?

Michael: You miserable, little --

Kendall: Oh, you sweet-talker. You don't sweet-talk me. Look, I know the whole deal now. I know your father worshiped your brother, pitted him as the perfect son against you, the flawed son who could never quite measure up. So then when he died, Alexander expected you to step up to the plate and do the family name proud. But you didnít. You failed, you disappointed him, and you made him mourn your brother even more.

Michael: You're wrong.

Kendall: Uh-uh. I know how it is, ok? I've lived in my semi perfect sister's shadow since the day I found Erica. I'm the only person who understands why you did what you did. I know what a person will do to force a parent to acknowledge them.

Michael: Well, it's too bad this little revelation is hitting you now, after you sided with Erica against me, huh? Besides, I know this whole confrontational talk is just a cover for what you're really trying to say to me.

Kendall: Oh, really?

Michael: Mm-hmm, and it's ok, Kendall. I accept your apology.

Kendall: Apology?

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: Oh --

Michael: Yep. You've realized that you've made a mistake with me, betraying me with a mother who treats you like the help. I mean, she's already turned her back on you, hasn't she, and now you need me.

Kendall: Oh, my God, you're serious.

Michael: When I get out of here, you'll want me back.

Kendall: That's good. You have got to be kidding me!

David: Anna, I don't want to fight with you on this. But please, you need to consider all the risks.

Anna: Like I haven't? I lay awake half the night worrying about everything, wondering if it really is worth the risk.

David: That's because you love our little girl.

Anna: Yes.

David: And so do I. But please, Anna, don't let your need to be right make you do something that we're all going to regret.

Anna: Is that what you think this is? Oh, my -- you think that I'm going to risk my daughter's health just to win an argument with you?

David: Anna, you know that I would do anything for Leora. You know that.

Anna: Well, this operation is going to save her life.

David: No, no, that's where you're wrong. This surgery is a mistake, Anna. You have to hear that.

Anna: You swore you weren't going to go up against me on this.

David: You were threatening to throw me in jail. What do you want me to do? Look, she's -- she's already susceptible, ok? You have to understand that this is not the right thing to do here.

Anna: I don't know why I thought that you would support me. I don't know why.

David: I can't support insanity. What do you want from me?

Anna: Ok. When I come back, you're either with me on this or you're gone. I'm not joking.

David: Joe, listen, I got to talk to you for a minute.

Joe: You here for Leora's checkup?

David: No, I need to ask you something first. Now, what happened? I thought that -- I thought that we agreed that the pacemaker wasn't the right option for Leora right now.

Joe: Well, please. David, that was when she was a newborn. Now that she's a little stronger and her heart rate is still under 85, and the drugs to regulate it only can work so long -- you know that, David -- the bottom line is her condition's not improving. And I did say if that were the case, surgery would be the best -- indeed, David, it's the only option.

David: Joe, there's still a very real risk here.

Joe: But a pacemaker may be Leoraís only chance at a normal life.

David: Look, she's so fragile, Joe.

Joe: I know, I know. But she's strong enough for surgery, and the doctor performing it agrees.

David: Oh, Larry Tuttle?

Joe: Oh, he's the best there is.

David: Oh, come on, Joe, Tuttle is hardly the final word in pediatric cardiology.

Joe: David, David, we both know that that's not the case.

David: She's not your child, Joe.

Joe: I know that. I know that. But I would be saying the same thing if she were. She's in excellent hands, David.

David: All right, well, I'm going to be right there with him, right at his side, making sure that he does this right.

Joe: Wait a minute. If you think you're going to be in the operating room during Leoraís operation --

David: Oh, I'm going to be there, all right. You can count on that.

[sirens]

Maddie: I'm scared. Don't go back in the water, ok?

Maria: Ok, honey, I'm right here. Mama's right here.

Derek: This area secured?

Officer: Yeah, backup's on the way.

Derek: Look, I want somebody to stay with Maureen and her daughter at all times.

Officer: Yes, Sir.

Derek: All right, thanks.

Maria: Don't worry, I'm going to stay right here with you, ok, sweetheart? You don't have to be scared.

Edmund: She swallow a lot of water?

Maria: Yeah, I think she did. Hey, Tommy?

Tommy: Yes? How you guys doing?

Maria: Yeah, could you do me a favor, please? Could you take another listen and just focus on the left base this time?

Tommy: No problem. Maddie?

Maria: Thanks.

Maddie: Did Aidan get off the boat before it blew up?

Maria: Aidan's going -- Aidan's going to be fine. He's going to be -- he's going to be good.

Maddie: Aidan was very brave, Daddy.

Edmund: Yes, he is a very brave man.

Paramedic: Maddie, we're going to have another listen at your heart, ok?

Maddie: Ok, but I'm fine.

Derek: Hey, you guys --

Edmund: What?

Maria: What's going on?

Derek: The coast guard hasn't picked up any survivors yet.

Edmund: What about the yacht? Did they get to the yacht yet?

Derek: No, it's still burning out of control.

Maria: Thanks.

Edmund: Aidan's tough. If anybody can survive, he'll do it.

Maria: Yeah, I know, I know.

Paramedic: Both pupils are equal and reactive.

Tommy: Her mother's right. Heard some crackling at the left base.

Maria: She ok? How's she doing?

Paramedic: We're going to get her to the hospital and give her a chest x-ray.

Maria: Ok, I'm going to ride along with you guys, if that's all right with you.

Edmund: No, listen, I'll go, I'll go. You stay in case there's word of Aidan.

Maria: No, I really feel like she needs both of us right now. I feel like, you know, she's -- look, I just want to go, ok, please? I'm going to go.

Paramedic: We're going to go get the stretcher.

Edmund: Listen, if you want to stay, I can call you.

Maria: Derek just said that the divers can't get anywhere near the boat. It's going to be maybe hours before we even hear anything, so I'm going to --

Edmund: Are you sure?

Maria: Yes, I'm totally sure. I'm her mother. I want to be there. - Two of you, around back, move! - Where is he?

Kendall: You're a sicko. Is your mind that warped? You used me. You made me think that I had to prove myself to you by seducing Boyd. No, I let you manipulate me into that screwed-up mindset, but I'm not going to sit here and listen to you distort this whole thing now. No.

Michael: You really are quite desperate, aren't you?

Kendall: Look closely, Mike. Which side of the bars am I on? You're over there, I'm over here. Hmm, let's see now. You're the one who's lost it all.

Michael: I don't think so. I haven't lost a thing, Kendall. The business world has a short memory span.

Kendall: I'm not talking about business. You've lost the best thing that's ever happened to you.

Michael: Which would be what?

Kendall: Me.

Lena: Bianca, we can't go on like this. I just really wanted to --

Bianca: Get out. I mean it. I'm not going to let you stay here and do more damage.

Lena: Look, five minutes, that's all I ask.

Bianca: No, I've heard everything you had to say at the Valley Inn.

Lena: No, no, you didn't hear everything.

Bianca: Yes, I heard your whole sob story about how Michael threatened your mother, and that's why --

Lena: This isn't about Michael or my mother or the disk. This is about you and me and how much -- how we feel and -- I love you.

Bianca: I don't believe you when you say that.

Lena: Look, I know I ruined everything by lying, but I really want to fix that now.

Bianca: You can't just snap your fingers and make it all disappear.

Lena: Bianca, I'm working with your uncle to make sure that Michael Cambias goes to prison for a very long time.

Bianca: Right, so you pin it all on Michael, and you walk away with immunity and a gold star and, what, me? I don't think so.

Lena: I know I've hurt you and I know that you hate me. And that's difficult for me.

Bianca: Well, you should've thought of that before.

Lena: I did, Bianca. That's why I tried to leave Pine Valley. I didn't want you to find out. I didn't want us to get any further. But you're the one who stopped me; you're the one who convinced me that we're worth fighting for. And I'm testifying against Michael to prove to you that you're right.

Bianca: Well, don't do me any favors, Lena, because all you're proving to me is that you're willing to save your own skin.

Lena: I'm trying to save us.

Bianca: There is no "us." Not anymore. Not after what you did.

Lena: Look, I had no choice, Bianca. I didn't grow up the way you did, a stable and happy home.

Bianca: "Stable"? You know what my parents' divorce did to me.

Lena: At least they provided for you. I never even had that. All my life, no matter how much I tried, I was that close to the streets.

Bianca: And Michael saved you from all of that?

Lena: Yes, yes, he did. He saw how desperate I was, and he's a very clever man. He used that to his advantage.

Bianca: So you're just another one of Michaelís victims, is that it?

Lena: He made me do things I didn't want to do.

Bianca: Like sleep with him. And how many others?

Lena: Men mean nothing to me, Bianca. They're just a means to an end. They're just good for business.

Bianca: And what are women good for?

Lena: Love.

Joe: You are not going to be in the O.R. during your daughter's surgery.

David: I'm the one who was in there performing the in utero surgery that saved her life!

Joe: Yes, but that was an emergency. You were the only one there.

David: I have every right to be in there, Joe!

Joe: Yes, but Dr. Tuttle is here now.

David: Yes, and I'm here, too, and I want to make sure that he does this right.

Anna: David, David, this is different.

David: How?

Anna: Well, because you're too close to her now to watch her being operated on. Look, she's your daughter. You love her, you've held her. Oh come on, this is not a good idea.

Joe: David, in any case, you should be with Anna during the surgery. You're going to need each other.

David: Oh, come off it this is ridiculous. I'm wasting my time here.

Anna: David, please wait. I know it hurts that someone else is going to operate on your baby.

David: Anna, we're talking about opening up our little girl, all right?

Anna: I know what we're talking about.

David: You can't expect me to sit in the waiting room while that's happening in the O.R.

Anna: I know. I know. Look, here. Here she goes. There. See? You're too close, David.

[Leora fusses]

David: No, no, no, no.

Anna: It's not right. Here.

David: It has to be. It's ok. It's ok, it's ok.

Joe: You're her father, David. You'll only distract the doctor.

David: Oh, come on, Joe. If my being there is going to distract Dr. Tuttle, then he's the last person on earth I want touching my daughter.

[Leora cries]

Anna: Shh, shh, shh, shh.

Joe: David, David, there's still a restraining order against you in this hospital.

David: Shh, shh, shh.

Joe: And if you push it, I will have to enforce it.

[phone rings]

Anna: Yes? Hello?

Man: Anna?

Anna: Yeah.

Man: It's Sergeant Peters.

Anna: Oh, hi, Sergeant Peters. This really isn't a good time.

Sgt. Peters: Uh, it's not a social call. There was an explosion down by the docks. The yacht Fidelity blew up.

Anna: Oh. Oh, my God. Um, I -- I don't know anything about this. I'm still on leave.

Sgt. Peters: Uh, your -- your nephew was on it, Chief.

Anna: What?

Sgt. Peters: I'm sorry.

Anna: What?

Sgt. Peters: So far, there are no survivors.

Maria: Do you know that you are the best, bravest little girl in the whole world?

Maddie: Is Aidan a good swimmer?

Maria: Yeah, I think he is. I think he is, sweetheart. But you know what, if Aidan was here right now, he would be wanting you to go to sleep. He'd want you to sleep so that you'll get better faster, ok?

Maddie: I don't want to go to sleep. I want to wait for Aidan.

Maria: I know you do, sweet pea. I do, too.

Maddie: Promise he'll come see me later.

Maria: Well, you know what -- I would be willing to bet that if you go to sleep right now, he will be here by the time you wake up, ok? So you must sleep, sleep.

Maddie: Mm-hmm.

Maria: Good.

Edmund: Derek, what have you got?

Derek: We found something. It's not good.

Maria: There's my good girl.

Maria: Is she getting erythromycin in her I.V.?

Nurse: No, cephalosporin.

Maria: When will you be able to get an x-ray on her?

Nurse: We've been waiting for transport. I'll give them another call.

Maria: Ok. She going to be put on steroids?

Nurse: Not right away. We'll watch her for 24 hours.

Maria: You know, she's going to need serial A.B.G.s. Does the doctor know that?

Nurse: I'll check with him.

Maria: And what about pneumonitis or pulmonary edema?

Nurse: We're keeping a close eye on her oxygen saturation.

Maria: Ok. I'm -- I'm sorry, really. I don't mean to be overstepping or anything, but --

Nurse: Don't worry. We're taking good care of your daughter.

Maria: Thanks.

Brooke: Maureen.

Maria: Oh --

Brooke: Hi.

Maria: I didn't even know you were there.

Brooke: Are you ok? I heard about the explosion on the wire. I just wanted to make sure Maddie was ok.

Maria: Yeah. I don't know about emotionally how she's going to be, but I think she's going to be fine. She's got some water in her lungs, but that's about it.

Brooke: The shooter followed you and Maddie onto the boat?

Maria: Yeah. He had a gun. He threw --

Brooke: It's ok. It's ok. It's ok.

Maria: And if Aidan hadn't been there, I don't even know -- Lord only knows what would've happened to us.

Brooke: And Aidan, he's --

Maria: Well, he may not -- he may have been on the yacht when it crashed into the rocks. But you know what -- I know that he got off in time. I know he did. There's just no way that he --

Brooke: Listen, with his training, I'm sure he's ok.

Maria: Yeah. Yeah. My poor baby. Oh, she's been so worried about Aidan, too, because she's gotten really close to him.

Brooke: I tell you, this little girl has been through a lot in her very short life.

Maria: Yeah, she has. She and Sammy both. With Sammy when we almost lost him to Kelsey, and -- and then her when we thought that she almost drowned right after she was first born, and then, you know

Brooke: You remember that?

Maria: No, it was Edmund filled me in on all that.

Brooke: When I walked in here, you were giving very specific instructions to the nurse. You were just rattling them off.

Maria: Yeah, well, I've worked in hospitals for a while.

Brooke: No, you were very specific.

Maria: It's probably just the classes I've been auditing at P.V.U.

Brooke: You sounded like a doctor. You sounded like the doctor that Maria was.

Maria: Brooke, stop. Please donít.

Brooke: When you were standing here --

Maria: Donít.

Brooke: And you were caressing her forehead and calling her your baby. Oh, my God. You remember! It's true, isn't it? You remember everything?

Maria: Yeah.

Brooke: When --

Maria: Shh. Let's take it over here, just so that she can try to sleep.

Brooke: And when did it happen?

Maria: Well, she -- she went into the water and I dove in after her and I couldn't find her. And then all I did find was her sweater. And --

Brooke: Maria --

Maria: And I thought that she had drowned. And then all of a sudden, the world went very clear. And it was insanely fast. And then I found her.

Brooke: Does she know yet?

Maria: No, no, she doesn't, and neither does Edmund.

Brooke: What do I say?

Maria: Um -- "hello"?

Brooke: Hello. Hello!

Maria: Hi! Oh, my God, don't even -- I don't even know how to begin to tell you what it feels -- what it feels like inside!

Brooke: It's ok. I can't even begin to imagine it. I canít.

Maria: Oh, but please do me a favor and don't tell anybody, ok?

Brooke: It's not my place. I wouldn't say anything. But, I mean, you're going to tell everybody soon, right?

Maria: Well, I -- I don't know. I haven't even thought about it. I don't know.

Brooke: Is Edmund here?

Maria: Yeah, he is. He is.

Brooke: Well, have you had a chance, I mean, to be alone with him since this happened?

Maria: Uh -- yeah.

Brooke: Well, why are you keeping this from him? I mean, unless you remember and -- and you still don't love him.

Maria: Oh, my God, no. No, I love him with everything that I am. Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, Brooke.

Brooke: Oh, no, no. It's ok, it's ok, really. It would be so much worse if you remembered everything and your feelings had moved on.

Maria: Well, they had. But --

Brooke: But you love him.

Maria: Oh, yeah.

Edmund: I -- I didn't see you come in. Hi. How's Maddie?

Brooke: Um, Maureen said that Maddie seems fine.

Maria: Yeah. Yeah.

Edmund: Ok. Thank you for coming, ok?

Brooke: Yeah.

Kendall: I'll admit it, I loved you. I loved you more than I ever thought I could. Doesn't mean I feel good about it.

Michael: Aw. And you're telling me this why?

Kendall: Because you need to know the damage that you've caused me by lying to me, by cheating on me, by trying to rape me.

Michael: What are you talking about, rape you?

Kendall: The other night in your condo when you tried to force yourself on me. Come on.

Michael: Oh, is that what it's called now? See, because every other time --

Kendall: Every other time I wanted you. This time I didn't want you, and you knew it. You were smashing things around, you were threatening me.

Michael: Well, that's because you were rummaging around my room and I was angry. Besides, I didn't exactly hear you say no.

Kendall: You wouldn't have heard me even if I did say no.

Michael: You know, I was just coming on to you the way you always liked me to, Kendall.

Kendall: You are so disgusting. You are disgusting. You were totally on some wacked-out power trip. If Erica hadn't have interrupted you, God kno - --

Michael: Oh, I get it now, I get it now. This is all Ericaís doing. I see, I see. She put this in your head, did she? I mean, after all, she's the expert, right?

Kendall: You are totally, totally sick. Yes, she survived rape. I've also been assaulted before by another lowlife very similar to you.

Michael: Oh.

Kendall: You both had that same sick look in your eyes.

Michael: You're very popular.

Kendall: And you're very arrested. If Erica hadn't have stopped you, you would be in here right now for rape.

Michael: Did you ever consider the fact that maybe she didn't want you to have the one thing that she couldn't?

Kendall: Oh, and what would that be?

Michael: You're looking at him.

Bianca: "Love." You throw that word around an awful lot, Lena.

Lena: With you I mean it.

Bianca: You used me for business, to get Boydís formula, to go after my mother and her company and to make you and Michael very rich.

Lena: You are so wrong. Bianca, I was in love with you way before Michael ever ordered me to go after you. I just started working for Enchantment.

Bianca: So all the time that we ever spent together --

Lena: I was crazy about you. I couldn't stay away from you, and I never dreamed of doing what Michael eventually asked of me. Look, it was his job to get the formula. And when he failed --

Bianca: That's when he asked you to go after Ericaís other daughter.

Lena: Yes. Do you believe me?

Bianca: It doesn't matter now. You know, we had a chance for something, Lena, something very special, something that doesn't come around every day, and you threw it away.

Lena: Look, I know that deep down you still believe that you still want to be with me. I can tell. There must be a way for me to persuade you that we're meant to be togeth--

Bianca: You know what? There is.

Kendall: You are delusional, Michael. Why in God's name would Erica want you?

Michael: You know, if anybody's delusional, Kendall, it's you. I mean, did you really believe that your mother would finally love you because you helped her take down big, bad Michael Cambias? Tell me something, Kendall, what's she doing now?

Kendall: That's not why I helped her.

Michael: Like hell. You'll see. Just as soon as you don't do something that she doesn't like, something that reminds her why she hates you, she'll turn against you.

Kendall: Erica's not like your father.

Michael: She's not? Kendall, as soon as she gets kicked off the Cambias board of directors, she'll need somebody to blame.

Kendall: Your father appointed her to that board.

Michael: Hmm, and you think I'm just going to let her have a say in the company that I've worked my whole life to take over? Don't think so. As soon as I get out of here, I'm going to kick her off that throne she thinks she's on. And if I can't get you to help me, I'll do it alone.

Kendall: Is that all I ever was to you? A way to get Erica? Was there ever, like, one tiny, little second in all those moments that we spent together where you actually cared about me?

Michael: Yeah. I did care about you. Might actually say that I loved you -- for a little while.

Kendall: You don't know what love is.

Michael: Why? Because my definition of love is different than yours?

Kendall: No, your idea of love is twisted.

Michael: Yeah, and your idea of it is having your mother hold you in her arms and accepting you as her real daughter. No wonder you're so cold in the sack.

Kendall: Shut up, you pathetic, little man! You will never have your dream of running Cambias Industries because your father will never accept you, and you will never be half the man your brother would've been if he were still alive!

Michael: Don't you say another word about my brother! And as for you and your part-time mother, if I have my way -- and I usually do -- this whole little power play's going to blow up in her face. And then she'll blame you, her rapist's spawn, for ever bringing me into this whole thing.

Kendall: You really are a psycho, Michael.

Michael: Yeah, and you really are a pathetic little swamp girl, Kendall.

Kendall: Why don't you go to hell and rot there.

Michael: Yeah, don't count on it!

Bianca: Before I met you, Lena, I'd made a decision. I'd given up on trying to find love. Instead, I decided to concentrate on work. Enchantment is my mother's legacy, and I thought that if I couldn't find somebody to love, at least I could have work that I could take pride in, and maybe that would make the hurt go away. And then I met you. And I threw reason and logic right out the window for another liar.

Lena: Bianca, don't do this.

Bianca: Don't do what? Why? Does it hurt?

Lena: Yes.

Bianca: Good.

Lena: Don't you know -- can't you tell I'm not lying to you now?

Bianca: No, you're too good at it.

Lena: But you can tell. I -- I can see that you can tell. You're just so protective and so scared --

Bianca: Yes, I am scared, Lena. I'm scared of you.

Lena: I'm asking you not to be.

Bianca: How stupid do you think I am?

Lena: Please, Bianca, just help me find a way to put this right.

Bianca: Do you really want to do that for me?

Lena: Oh, yes.

Bianca: Then stay away. Pretend that you never met me.

Lena: I can't do that.

Bianca: Just leave me alone. I mean, it'll be the one decent thing you've ever done for me, maybe for anybody.

Lena: You really want that?

Bianca: Yes, I really want that.

Lena: All right, I will. I'll do anything for you.

Maria: Edmund, I really -- I want to be able to tell you this myself.

Edmund: What, about Maddie?

Maria: No, Maddie's going to be fine. They're going to take her for some more x-rays. No, but it's something that I've been wanting to tell you this whole time. I just haven't been able to tell you. And --

Joe: How's she's doing?

Maria: She's sleeping. She's sleeping.

Joe: Best thing for her.

Maria: Yeah. Yep.

Joe: Let me check her vitals.

Maria: Ok.

Edmund: I got to tell you something.

Maria: Ok, I've got to tell you something.

Edmund: No, I got to get this out.

Maria: No, I -- get out what?

Edmund: I just got off the phone with Derek.

Maria: And? Is Aidan ok?

Edmund: The coast guard found -- found a body in the water near the wreckage.

Maria: No, it's not -- it's not Aidan.

Edmund: They don't know. They haven't I.D.'d the body yet, ok? It could be the killer.

Maria: Ok, so Aidan could still be out there, then?

Edmund: Maureen, there were no survivors.

Maria: No. No

Jack: Hey, Bianca, you're still here. Good. Where's Lena?

Bianca: You just missed her.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Where do you think you're going? Honey, you've been crying.

Bianca: I'm ok.

Jack: No, I don't think you are ok. What happened? I mean, what happened after I left?

Bianca: You should've taken Lena with you is all.

Jack: Oh, come on, sweetheart, talk to me, please?

Bianca: She just tried to sell me her same old routine, how she didn't want to use me to get Boydís formula.

Jack: What else did she say?

Bianca: She said she really did love me, that she still loves me now. But, I mean, it's all lies.

Jack: Honey, if you're so sure it's all lies, then why are you so upset?

Bianca: I'm angry that she did this to me.

Jack: You know, I don't know Lena Kundera at all, but it does seem to me that she's trying very hard to make things right between the two of you.

Bianca: Well, I can't let her back into my life again.

Jack: So you mean you're done with Lena forever?

Bianca: Yeah. She's a user. People like that just don't change.

Jack: Then why did she even bother to tell you how she felt about you? I mean, why would she think you would even care, given that the truth's come out?

Bianca: I honestly don't know. But I wish that she would just leave me alone.

Jack: Well, I'll tell you what I wish. I wish that you would consider the possibility that Lena really does love you.

David: Did you get through to Derek?

Anna: Yeah. They, uh -- they found a body.

David: Did they say whether it was --

Anna: No, they don't know whether it's Aidan yet. But I might have to go down to the morgue to identify the body. Hi! Hi, sweetie! Yeah!

David: I'm sorry.

Anna: Oh, God, this is awful. You know, I didn't know Aidan very long, but I just -- I love the fact that he's part of our family and I love him, and now, you know, the thought that he's not going to be in our lives anymore, it's just -- it's sick.

David: I know.

Anna: Ok, sweetie?

David: I'm not going to fight you anymore, Anna. Leora should get the pacemaker. I give you my word that I'm not going to stand in the way or interfere with Dr. Tuttle.

Anna: Oh, you're just saying that because of Aidan.

David: No, no, I'm not. Look, we've both lost a lot of people in our lives. Maybe I just -- I just need to trust. Trust in myself, you know, trust you.

Anna: Thank you.

David: Oh, hey. We're a family now. And I'm going to make sure we stay that way. Ok?

Michael: What's going on?

Officer: It's called bail. Surprised?

Michael: Well, I guess my father decided I shouldn't sit here and fester.

Adam: Not quite. I paid your bail.

Michael: Adam Chandler.

Adam: Good evening, Michael.

Michael: Huh. Well, you never do anything without a motive.

Adam: That's right. Think of this as an advance for services yet to be rendered.

Edmund: Maureen, come on, let's get out of here. Come on. Listen, you've had a hell of an ordeal. Can I get you anything?

Maria: No, I just --

Edmund: Something?

Maria: I don't want to stop looking for him. I don't want -- I don't want to stop. I want Derek to do something. I want him to keep looking for him.

Edmund: I'll hire my own divers if I have to, ok? We'll find Aidan, I promise you.

Maria: Ok.

Edmund: I know what it's like to think you've lost someone you love.

Maria: I just feel like that he could still be out there right now, still in the water somewhere fighting for his life, and it would be because of me, because he really tried to -- he was trying to help. He was trying to help Maddie. He really loves her.

Edmund: He loves you, too. And I know --

Maria: No, no, Edmund, don't, donít.

Edmund: What?

Maria: I've been -- this is what I've been trying to tell you.

Edmund: Ok, ok, tell me.

Maria: This is what I've been trying to tell you all night, but just I haven't had a chance. Oh, my God, I was in the water earlier -- Aidan? Oh, my God, Aidan. Oh, thank God! Oh, thank God! Oh!

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

Greenlee: Where'd everyone go?

Carlos: Home.

Greenlee: So it's just --

Carlos: You and me.

Kendall: I went to see Michael. He swore to me he would make you pay for what you did to him.

Adam: You need me and I need you.

Maria: I've got something I have to tell you.
