>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Bianca: You went behind my back to try to keep me away from the person that I love.

Luis: I got the pickup out back. Let's go load it up.

Reggie: It's not going to happen today. Jackson gave the job to Joni.

Luis: Then I suggest that you get your woman in line.

David: I was the one that tried to save our daughter's life. You are the one that let Tad stop me. You killed her.

Reggie: I think you're going to need something stronger than water.

Jack: No, no, water will do the trick, Reggie, thanks.

Reggie: You're the whitest white dude Iíve ever seen in my life. You want me to call 911 or something?

Jack: No, no, I'll be fine with the water. Thanks.

Reggie: You sure?

Jack: Yeah. Look, I just came from the funeral of a friend's baby. It's 110 degrees outside. The air conditioning in here needs servicing. And -- do you have any other questions?

Reggie: Well, shouldn't you be red instead of all pasty white if it's the heat?

Jack: I don't know -- maybe Iím just out of shape.

Reggie: Oh, yeah. Well, that's too bad. Your women are going to be very upset about that.

Jack: I appreciate your concern. I'll keep that in mind.

Reggie: No, seriously. You got Erica and Mary hanging around you? Not too bad for an old guy.

Jack: Wait a minute. Mary is an old friend of mine. That's all she is.

Reggie: Well, she might have a couple of miles -- well, a few miles on her, but, you know, she's not a friend. What, you did her or something?

Jack: What?

Reggie: Did you do her? I want the truth and nothing but the truth.

Jack: The truth, Reggie, is a gentleman never tells. That's the truth.

Reggie: Oh, so you did do her, and now she's back for more. Oh.

Jack: No, she is not back for more. Why am I having this conversation with you?

Reggie: I saw the look she was giving Erica. She wants you, man. She wants you bad.

Jack: Look, Reggie, even if she did, I am engaged to Erica.

Reggie: Well, does Erica know about you and Mary --

Jack: No, no, no, Reggie, she does not know. And I'd like it to stay that way. Do you understand me?

Reggie: Oh, you don't have to worry about me. It's Mary the one I think you need to worry about.

Erica: Are you sure she's on her way? Oh, Olga, thank you. I mean if this works, this could be just exactly what Iím looking for. It could really be a Godsend -- oh, Bianca just came in. Hi, Sweetheart. I am so glad that you decided to come.

Bianca: Well, Myrtle practically got on her knees and begged me to meet with you.

Erica: Well, Myrtle loves you very much.

Bianca: And you knew that I wouldn't be able to say no to her.

Erica: Please, won't you sit down? You're still angry at me.

Bianca: Well, can you give me a reason why I shouldn't be?

Erica: Honey, I just want what's best for you.

Bianca: And Lena doesn't qualify.

Erica: Bianca, please.

Bianca: All right. Myrtle said that you had something to discuss with me.

Erica: Yes -- Fusion's sexiest man in America contest.

Bianca: You're kidding, Mom. I can't believe you're worried about Fusion.

Erica: Well, those girls -- they think that they just came up with this brand-new idea, you know, brand-new and fresh. Well, please. I thought of man of Enchantment ages ago.

Bianca: So you think they stole your idea?

Erica: Yeah, well, of course they stole my idea. But what really bothers me is the buzz that they've created now in the youth market. So we need to think of a counterattack for this sexy male thing.

Bianca: Hmm. And sexy men are my expertise?

Erica: Bianca, please. Can't we just have a civilized dinner and discuss business?

Bianca: We can try.

Maggie: Do you want to sit down?

Aidan: Can I get you a cup of tea or a glass of whiskey from the cabinet?

Anna: No, I don't want anything. Thanks.

Aidan: What did I miss after the service? I mean, how come Davidís not with you?

David's voice: Don't you understand? I could have saved Leora's life. If you just trusted me, Anna, if you just backed me up with Joe, I would have done the right thing for all of us.

Anna: I can't stay here.

Aidan: Wait. We can stay around. We can stay with you.

Anna: No, I can't stay here with all this stuff, and I don't want to be here when David gets back. I thought I did, but I really donít.

Maggie: Ok, ok, we can go someplace else. Where would you like to be?

Anna: I'd like to be nowhere.

Maggie: No. No, you have to leave her alone. She has to just be by herself right now.

Aidan: What she needs is that creep David.

Maggie: Yeah, well, that creep also happens to be my cousin.

Aidan: I'm not going to hold that against you.

Maggie: You know, David is hurting, too.

Aidan: Yeah, well, she needs him right now, and where is he? Nowhere to be found.

Maggie: You know, when you lost Fiona or Maureen, did you do what everyone expected you to do? Didn't you go a little off the track?

Laurie: "Don't worry, I won't let you forget me."

David: Leora.

Jack: I tell you what, Reggie. Why don't you just be concerned with keeping your own lip buttoned, ok?

Reggie: Oh, I'm cool, all right? You and Miss Mary doing the deed, that's your own thing. That's none of my business.

Jack: Reggie, my relationship with Ms. Smythe was a great deal more than just doing the deed.

Reggie: Well, I'm pretty sure it was real complicated and meaningful and right and felt good, and the timing was right, and the mood and everything -- it was just perfect, huh? Ok, look, you float your boat your own way. It ain't got nothing to do with me. I'm cool.

[knock on door]

Reggie: Oh, you want to guess who that is? Mistress number --

Jack: No, I'd like you to answer the door.

Reggie: 27?

Jack: Just stop it.

Reggie: Ok, all right, all right, all right.

Anna: Hi, Reggie.

Reggie: Oh --

Jack: Hi, Anna.

Anna: Hi.

Reggie: I'm sorry to hear about your baby.

Anna: Oh, thank you. That's very sweet. I saw your lights were on.

Jack: Well, come in. Have a seat.

Anna: I'm -- really, Iím not going to stay long --

Jack: You can stay as long as you want.

Reggie: Well, I'm on my way to a graduation party, so --

Jack: Yeah, it's graduation ceremony at PVHS today.

Reggie: Yeah.

Anna: Congratulations.

Reggie: Oh, I didn't graduate. I'm just going to the party.

Jack: If you study.

Reggie: Well, I'm all right, you know? But a party ain't a party without good old Reggie, so --

Jack: Yeah, just remember, you've got an 11:00 curfew.

Reggie: It's graduation night.

Jack: Like I said, you got a midnight curfew.

Reggie: It's -- can you lighten up, please?

Jack: Midnight. Say it with me.

Jack and Reggie: Midnight.

Jack: Good. Go have a good time. Don't do anything stupid. Get out of here.

Anna: He's so beautiful, isn't he?

Jack: Yeah, he's a sweet kid. I tried to reach you, but my call went right to your voicemail.

Anna: Oh, yeah, I switched off my cell phone. Thanks.

Jack: So, how did it go?

Anna: The burial? Oh, it was horrible.

Jack: How was it at the chapel after I left you?

Anna: He blames me.

Jack: David? How could he possibly think you were responsible for this?

Anna: Well, because I insisted Leora get the pacemaker and that he stay out of the O.R.

Jack: Yes, out of concern for your daughter, because you were trying to help your daughter.

Anna: I didn't help, though, did I? My daughter is dead because of the choices I made.

Laurie: "Everywhere you look, I'll be there."

David: Yes.

Laurie: Dr. Hayward?

David: I'm -- Iím sorry. I -- my little girl --

Laurie: I -- I heard she passed away. I'm so sorry.

David: Laurie -- I thought -- well, you look like --

Laurie: Some lost choir member?

David: No, actually, you look like an angel.

Laurie: It's my graduation gown.

David: So, why did you wear it here?

Laurie: Oh -- my mom is buried right over there. I come here to talk to her sometimes. It must seem kind of silly.

David: No, not to me. I'm sorry about your mother.

Laurie: It's -- it's been a couple of years now. A drunk driver slammed into her car.

David: So, you -- so, you graduated today, huh?

Laurie: Yeah. It's kind of scary.

David: Mm-hmm. Well, your father must be very proud.

Laurie: I guess.

David: You guess? Of course he is.

Laurie: Yeah, well, I haven't seen him since breakfast.

David: He missed the ceremony?

Laurie: It's not that important.

David: Of course it's important. Every milestone is important. If you were my daughter -- I would have been there. I wanted to be there. And I wanted to be there for everything.

Joni: Oh, my God. Reggie. That's not funny.

Reggie: Yes, it is. This little -- whatever it was --

Joni: Shut up, shut up.

Reggie: What are you doing here so late?

Joni: I'm just waiting for a delivery. What's your excuse, huh?

Reggie: Maybe I just don't want you to be here by yourself at night.

Joni: Me?

Reggie: Mm-hmm.

Bianca: Mom, you've told me so many times that Fusion is nothing to worry about.

Erica: That's because Fusion never garnered national attention before.

Bianca: Well, maybe this sexiest man campaign will just do a fast fade.

Erica: Oh, Casey Wexler doesn't think so.

Bianca: Hmm. Ok, well, what do you want me to do?

Erica: I want you to help me come up with a plan, you know, a counterattack to this thing.

Bianca: Ok, do you see maybe a new ad campaign or fresh products or all of the above?

Erica: Well, I think all of the above would absolutely be ideal. I can't believe it!

Bianca: Who's this?

Erica: This is Kristi Walters. I haven't seen her in ages, not since Kristi did some modeling for us in New York.

Kirsti: Erica. I never dreamed I'd run into you.

Erica: Well, yes, Pine Valley is my home base. And what brings you here? Please don't tell me Fusion.

Kirsti: Olga booked me into some Giovanna layouts.

Erica: No. Oh, well, gee, we have to catch up. Can you join us?

Kirsti: Oh, I'd love to.

Erica: Great.

Kirsti: Are you a model, too?

Bianca: Oh, no, I'm on the business end of things.

Erica: Oh, well, where are my manners? Kirsti, this is my daughter Bianca. Bianca, Kristi.

Kirsti: You are so lovely. I should have guessed.

Erica: Kirsti, didn't I hear that you were living in Italy?

Kirsti: Until recently. I was trying to breathe life into a doomed romance, but it couldn't be revived.

Bianca: Oh, well, I'm sorry.

Kirsti: Oh, no, it's all for the best. I'm incurably American. Rome is a nice place to visit, but I missed home.

Erica: Oh. And what else? What else are you up to?

Kirsti: I finally bought my own horse.

Erica: You did? My goodness, Bianca loves riding.

Kirsti: She is exquisite and absolutely fearless. She'll take any fence I put her to.

Bianca: Wow. I haven't gone riding in such a long time.

Kirsti: Don't you miss it?

Bianca: Well, of course. But between classes and work, you know, I'm so busy.

Kirsti: Oh, well, I have to make time. It keeps me centered. Oh! Oh, I wanted to show you this.

Erica: "Kirsti's Kloset."

Kirsti: My new clothing line. The website is awesome.

Erica: Oh, well, my goodness. And what do you two not have in common? Bianca used to sketch fashion design before she even knew the alphabet.

Kirsti: Oh.

Bianca: Yes, when I wasn't making mud pies and scribbling outside the lines in my coloring book.

Erica: Oh, honey, some of your designs were really quite professional.

Bianca: Mom, they were doodles.

Erica: Bianca is so modest.

Bianca: Tell me again, Kirsti, where you're living.

Kirsti: On barrow in the village.

Bianca: Really? Greenwich Village, that is?

Kirsti: Is there any other?

Erica: And what about the summer? Do you stay in the city all summer?

Kirsti: No, no. During the summer, I escape every chance I get.

Bianca: Oh, do you have a country house?

Kirsti: A share on Fire Island. It's heavenly.

Bianca: Fire Island. That's lovely. Which community?

Kirsti: Cherry Grove.

Erica: Oh, that must be so lovely.

Bianca: And ever so gay. I cannot believe that you are trying to set me up.

Anna: Maybe if I had insisted that David were allowed in the operating room and he was allowed to treat Leora --

Jack: Well, that wasn't your call, though, Anna. That wasn't your call.

Anna: But you see, Jack, I don't know whether we could have saved her. Maybe he could.

Jack: Or maybe he couldn't. You're making yourself crazy with this.

Anna: See, he didn't want the surgery. I had to have it my way.

Jack: Wait, wait. Leora's doctors insisted that implanting the pacemaker was the right thing to do. Isn't that true?

Anna: And I listened to them. I didn't trust Davidís opinion or skill because I didn't trust him.

Jack: No, because you thought fear was clouding his judgment. And let's face it, this is not the first time that that would be the case with him.

Anna: But I loved him anyway. And I had a baby with him anyway. The odds were so against me ever getting pregnant again. So when it happened and we were handed Leora, that was a miracle. And I took that to be a sign that I had made the right choice, that David and I were supposed to be together. I felt that I was doing the right thing. But I wasn't doing the right thing at all.

Jack: You know what I think? I think you're looking for answers. I think you're trying to make sense out of a senseless tragedy.

Anna: Don't you think that everything happens for a reason? Every choice Iíve made my whole life has led me right to this moment, right now, right here.

Jack: No, I'll tell you what I think. I don't think you had any control over what happened to Leora whatsoever.

Anna: My daughter is dead. Why? Why? Is it to teach me a lesson?

Jack: Anna, I don't know. Anna, I just -- I wish there was something I could say or do to make this easier for you.

Anna: Ok, you have to answer me honestly.

Jack: Ok.

Anna: Forget that we're friends, forget everything that we've ever said to each to other.

Jack: All right.

Anna: Do you think that David could be right in any way? That there is something buried so deep inside me that I wouldn't allow him to save her? Did I make all of this happen?

Jack: God, no. No, Anna, you did not. And I never, ever want to hear you say that again. Do you understand me? Never.

Maggie: I don't feel right about this.

Aidan: Well, you heard Anna. She can't take seeing all these constant reminders.

Maggie: Well, shouldn't it be up to Anna and David what goes and what stays?

Aidan: I was going to take these over to my place. And when they're coping with it better, I'll -- I'll give them back.

Maggie: David starting reading to Leora before she was even born. Anna got such a kick out of it. He insisted that babies learn from listening and that it soothes them and makes them feel that they're really being loved. You know, he has taken such good care of me. I didn't know him before I came to Pine Valley. He's even taking care of my college tuition.

Aidan: Right. Well, I've seen sides of David that you haven't seen. So let's just agree to disagree, shall we?

Maggie: I know David has hurt people that you love --

Aidan: And he's still hurting them.

Maggie: Yeah, but even so, don't you think he is in as much pain as Anna?

Laurie: After my mom died, I came here every day. I --

David: Yeah, it's very peaceful here.

Laurie: I would have slept here if my dad hadn't dragged me home. I thought that this was as close to my mother as I could get. But she's everywhere -- in my heart, just like your daughter is in yours. You'll see.

David: Thank you.

Laurie: I hope I don't sound too new-agey.

David: No. You sound very kind. I'm sorry, Laurie. I didn't mean to interrupt you with your mother.

Laurie: Oh, you didn't.

Laurie: It's a full moon, isn't it? "I won't let you forget me. Everywhere you look, I'll be there, whispering my love through the trees, beaming my pride from the sun, softening the night with moonbeams, laughing in the twinkling of the stars."

David: I know that. What is that?

Laurie: Just a kids' book my mom used to read to me. Good night, Dr. Hayward.

David: Good night. Congratulations on your graduation.

Laurie: Thanks.

Erica: Bianca. What are you talking about?

Bianca: Kirsti has a summer getaway in Cherry Grove?

Erica: Yes. Isn't that lovely?

Bianca: No, Mother, it's code. It means that she's hanging with the gay crowd in Fire Island, and you know it.

Erica: Actually, I didn't know it.

Bianca: Well, Cherry Grove is where women go to enjoy fun in the sun with other women.

Erica: Well, then I really don't understand why you're upset.

Kirsti: Bianca, I didn't mean to upset --

Bianca: Oh, no, please. Kirsti, my mother's need to control everything is certainly not your fault.

Erica: Bianca. What have I done?

Kirsti: Will you excuse me? There's a call I need to make.

Erica: Yes. Bianca, you are really upset over nothing, honey.

Bianca: I cannot believe you, Mom. Really, how desperate can you get? Now you're trying to set me up with another woman?

Erica: Kirsti just happened to walk in.

Bianca: Let me ask you something. Why are you so threatened by Lena?

Erica: Threatened by Lena? Well, I'll tell you, I'm not threatened by Lena, but if Lena hadn't cut a deal with Jack Montgomery to testify against Michael Cambias, she'd be in jail where she belongs.

Bianca: Mom, you brought me here under false pretenses.

Erica: If I had told you that I wanted you to meet someone, would you have come?

Bianca: I would have fainted dead away.

Erica: I mean, Kirsti is lovely. She's beautiful. She's accomplished.

Bianca: Yes, and Iím sure that she's miss popularity of Cherry Grove. So?

Erica: So? You prefer the company of a liar and a thief? Bianca, honey, listen to me. I have chosen Mr. Wrong on far too many occasions, ok, and I'm just trying to spare you the same kind of disappointment.

Bianca: Mom, you and I are not the same person.

Erica: Of course not. But you are just as vulnerable as I am.

Bianca: No, I am not. I don't need from a woman what you need from a man.

Erica: Well, I guess it's clear that you have no respect for me at all.

Bianca: I do, of course. But I just need for you to accept the fact that you and I are very different people, that's all.

Erica: Look, I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I ruined both your evenings.

Kirsti: Oh, no, no, you didn't ruin my evening.

Erica: No, I did. Please, just accept my apology. Bad judgment.

Kirsti: Shouldn't you go after her?

Bianca: Probably. Aren't you going to stay for dinner?

Jack: What are you going to do? I mean, certainly you're not going to go back to the cabin.

Anna: Oh, God, no, I am not. I think I'm going to go to the Valley Inn.

Jack: No, that's ridiculous. I have a guest room right here. You can use that.

Anna: But Reggieís staying there.

Jack: Reggie can sack out on the couch. You'll be doing him a favor. He'll be closer to the kitchen, the TV, the entertainment system. He'll love you for it, ok?

Anna: I don't know.

Jack: Just say yes because you're not going to go.

Anna: I haven't got anything with me, you know.

Jack: What do you need? I've got shirts. I've got pajamas. I've got robes. What else do you need?

Anna: Do you have a toothbrush?

Jack: I'll have Reggie pick one up on his way home. Ah, you've run out of excuses now, haven't you?

Anna: You're one of the good guys, you know.

Jack: Yeah, I kind of like to. Come on, let's get you settled in.

Joni: You don't think I should be here alone at night, or is it just because you're so mad that Mr. Montgomery gave me the job of deliveries?

Reggie: Oh, no, you -- look, get off it, all right? You do your job well. You deserve it.

Joni: You think I deserve it?

Reggie: Yeah. Don't you?

Joni: Yeah, but I didn't think you thought I did.

Reggie: Uh-huh.

Joni: What are you -- how did you find me here, anyway?

Reggie: Oh, I was just around the neighborhood and I came by to see how the house was coming along, and I just so happened to go in there and you were doing your whatever you call that.

Joni: Yeah. It's pretty incredible what you can do when you have the time to do it.

Reggie: Yeah, I know. It's a rush, isn't it? But, look, I didn't mean to scare you earlier. I just said "what's up" a couple of times, but I guess you didn't hear me or something.

Joni: Yeah, you know, I had the music jacked up pretty loud, so --

Reggie: So, I didn't know gospel music could be so interesting.

Joni: It's not gospel music. Why are you always ridiculing my beliefs? You do it all the time.

Reggie: What are you talking about? I'm not mocking you. Gospel is all right. Me and my mom used to listen to it all the time. And what are you listening to, Miss Joni?

Joni: Give it -- give it back to me. Give it back!

Reggie: You're listening to hip-hop.

Joni: Yeah. So what? Can I please have it back?

Reggie: And that's yours?

Joni: Yeah.

Reggie: You're going straight to hell.

Aidan: I think that's everything.

Maggie: Ok. Yeah?

Aidan: Yep.

Maggie: All right, let's bring them to the car.

David: What's that? What do you think you're doing? You're not taking anything of my daughter's! Who gave you the right to touch anything of hers?

Maggie: David, we just brought Anna home from the funeral, and she couldn't stay --

Aidan: She couldn't stand all the constant reminders, David.

Maggie: We were just --

Aidan: We're just trying to help. We're just trying to make things easier.

David: You can't! Leora's dead! She's dead, all right? What, you think that stripping our home of everything she touched, everything that belonged to her is going to help us? Get out of here. Get out of here!

Maggie: David, we were just trying to --

David: How? How? By trying to get us to pretend that Leora never existed?

Maggie: Of course not.

Aidan: Look, I will do whatever it takes to make sure Anna gets through this, David. And maybe if you'd been where you belonged, maybe we wouldn't --

David: I was where I belong! I was with my daughter!

Aidan: You know what Annaís going through right now? What Annaís going through? You're not the only one that lost a baby, you know! She's crazed with grief, but you wouldn't realize that because you're too selfish --

Maggie: Aidan, let's go.

Aidan: And I'll be damned if I know why, but she needs you. She needs you, David, but you're always off playing the miraculous surgeon, aren't you?

Maggie: Aidan, please.

Aidan: How about playing a concerned husband for once in your sorry life?

David: Just go, Maggie. Go ahead.

[knock on door]

Jack: Hi, Erica --

Erica: Honestly, Jack. Are you trying to sabotage me?

Jack: Not that Iím aware of, no.

Erica: Well, you claim to want to build a life with me, and yet you don't seem to have any regard whatsoever for the effect of your behavior on Bianca.

Jack: Erica, why don't we just cut the drama and just tell me what it is Iím supposed to have done.

Erica: You have ignored Blancaís needs. You have abdicated your role as her uncle.

Jack: Since when?

Erica: She is impossible because of you.

Jack: This is about Lena, isn't it?

Erica: You should have slapped irons on that woman and sent her back on the first plane to Eastern Europe!

Jack: Yeah, well, that just wasn't possible, Erica.

Erica: Of course that was possible, but no, you wanted to cut a deal, you wanted to give her immunity.

Jack: No, you know what I wanted to do? I wanted to prosecute Michael Cambias. That's what I wanted to do. I wanted to do that to him because he tried to steal your company, because he tried to rape you. Now, would you rather he be out there running around free?

Erica: Well, he is running around out there free. He's striding around this town like he owns the place.

Jack: He is out on bail. He's not free. Those are two different things, and this is just temporary.

Erica: Well, I am not going to stand by, I can promise you that, and watch Bianca throw her life away. I will not let that happen.

Jack: All right, please, please, please, keep -- I think you should calm down.

Erica: Well, maybe I could do that after you call Bianca.

Jack: And talk to her about Lena?

Erica: Talk to her about making destructive choices, self-destructive choices. She looks up to you, Jack. She always has.

Jack: Look, if -- Erica, if Bianca wants my advice, she'll ask me for it.

Erica: Wow. Don't you care at all about your niece's happiness?

Jack: Oh, for Peteís sake. You know, I've had a really rough day. Could we maybe just talk about this tomorrow?

Erica: Are you asking me to leave?

Jack: If I did, would you go?

Reggie: So, Joni, does your parents know you listen to hip-hop? You can't find those C.D.s in the contemporary Christian section, you know.

Joni: They're not here, are they?

Reggie: Oh, Joni, I am impressed. You do have some things going on deep inside you, don't you?

Joni: You're not going to blast me for being a hypocrite?

Reggie: Joni, those are your secrets, not mine. It's your business.

Joni: Do you have any?

Reggie: Do I have any what, secrets? Yeah.

Joni: Like what? Fine, be that way.

Reggie: You know how you have a thing for hip-hop? Well, I kind of a thing for --

Joni: What?

Reggie: Country.

Joni: Which country?

Reggie: All of it, you know -- Nashville and --

Joni: You lie. That's such a lie.

Reggie: No, I'm dead serious. I started off with the classics, like Johnny and Willie, Hank Sr., all of them.

Joni: If you could recite each hit that they had, I still wouldn't believe you.

Reggie: I had you going, though, didn't I? I had you --

Joni: Never, Reggie, no.

Reggie: I seen the way your eyes lit up. You really thought you had something on me, didn't you?

Joni: In your dreams, yeah.

Reggie: Did you listen to all that C.D. yet?

Joni: No, actually, I got it on my way over here.

Reggie: Oh, well, you need to listen to track 12.

Joni: Track 12?

Reggie: Yeah, it's the banger.

Joni: You want to listen?

Reggie: Sure, why not?

Joni: Ok.

[music plays]

Erica: Why didn't you say that you were entertaining?

Jack: Oh, don't be ridiculous. Anna is here because --

Anna: Jack didn't want me to spend the night alone.

Jack: Leora's funeral was today.

Erica: Oh. Of course. I'm so sorry. Truly, I am so sorry.

Anna: Yes, I know, of course. Jackson's been very helpful.

Erica: Yes. Yes, Iím sure he has been.

Anna: I'll just -- I just wanted -- I'll leave you two.

Erica: Ok, I'll go so you can go back to comforting Anna.

Jack: I don't think I like the way you said the word "comforting." What do you mean, "comforting"?

Erica: Let me go so you can go back to your comfort sex.

Bianca: Lena claims that sex with Michael Cambias was meaningless. She says that she loved me, that she still loves me, and she keeps begging for another chance.

Kirsti: And are you going to give it to her?

Bianca: I haven't decided yet.

Kirsti: But you're leaning in that direction?

Bianca: I want to make sure that what I do is right.

Kirsti: Well, good luck.

Bianca: Thanks. I think I'm going to need it. So, what's your advice for me?

Kirsti: Hey, I moved to Rome for true love. That didn't last.

Bianca: See, I want the kind that lasts forever.

Kirsti: Oh, that is a beautiful dream. Some people live it.

Bianca: Well, maybe someday I will.

Kirsti: To someday.

Bianca: Someday.

Reggie: You know what, Joni? It's kind of late. Don't you think you should get home?

Joni: But I have to wait for the delivery.

Reggie: No, it's not going to come. Look, it's already late. They're probably going to call in the morning and say the truck broke down. Come on.

Joni: But they would have called if that happened, all right?

Reggie: Look, you're not going to stay here all night waiting for some big truck driver to come get you, no.

Joni: Are you trying to scare me or something?

Reggie: Joni, you're a brain, remember? Just go home to mommy and daddy.

Joni: You know, for a moment I thought -- forget it. You know what, Reggie? Just -- you're a jerk, Reggie.

Reggie: How long were you there?

Luis: Long enough. I was going to have a private talk with Joni, but then you came along.

Reggie: I said Iíll handle it, all right?

Luis: Yeah, well, your brand of handling is going to trip us up.

Reggie: You'll get what you want, Luis.

Luis: You're damn straight. There's a shipment of copper pipes coming in tomorrow, and that will bring us good money if you can get Joni to look the other way.

Reggie: It will be cool. Everything's going to work out, all right?

Luis: Good. Because I swear to you, if she tries blowing the whistle, I will take her out.

Reggie: Didn't I say I was going to handle it?

Luis: You warned me off Joni yesterday, came to me like you're the big man running this show. Well, understand something -- you run nothing! If you ever lay your hands on me again, I will mess Joni up good. Now, you got that?

David: "I won't let you forget me. Everywhere you look, I'll be there, whispering my love through trees, beaming my pride from the sun, softening your night with moonbeams, laughing in the twinkling of the stars." "He smiled back at the moon and heard the leaves whisper, 'I love you. Good night, little rabbit. Good night.'"

Jack: Oh, no. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You don't think you can just waltz in here, take a cheap shot like that, and walk out untouched?

Erica: Not untouched, believe me.

Jack: Oh, come on, comfort sex? Where do you get off saying a thing like that, anyway?

Erica: Well, that's what brought us back together, wasn't it? Lily was ill, you needed to feel that someone cared.

Jack: There's a difference here. I love you. There is nothing going on between Anna and me. You know that, for Peteís sake.

Erica: How would I know that?

Jack: Would you -- I can't believe what Iím hearing. Why do you do this? Why? Every time we get closer together, you drive a wedge and try to push us as far apart away as you can.

Erica: Anna wanders out here in your pajamas, and you tell me that Iím driving a wedge? I mean, what should I think?

Jack: What, maybe that I don't keep a nightgown here in her size? Why don't you just try trusting me for a change?

Erica: Well, you know something? As evolved as you think you are, Jack, you are just a man, and -- as you have proven time and time again.

Jack: No, you -- do you want to know what I am? I'm a human. I'm just a human being. A human being who is sick to death of you constantly trying to push us apart.

Erica: Ok, then you can't take it? Fine.

Jack: No. No, it's not fine, Erica. There's nothing fine about it.

Erica: Look, you just consider yourself spared and get back to comforting Anna.

Jack: I don't want to be spared. And I don't want --

Erica: Jack? Jack? Jack? Jack! Jack! What is it, Jack?

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

David: You killed my daughter, Joe. You think I'm going to let you walk away from that? You think Iím going to walk away from that?

Tad: Hey, get off!

Joe: Tad, don't --

Kendall: Since when do we keep secrets from each other?

Greenlee: Since you went to the competition.

Anna: If you don't work with me, we could lose him.
