(missed first minute, sorry)
Fine. Fine. Leave me here alone. This place gives me the creeps.
Mary: Erica, have they found a donor for Jack?
Erica: Yes. Yes. I only just found out. But you seem to know already.
Mary: Oh, no, I just had faith that they would. Well, that's great. They'll be coming in to prep him for surgery.
Maria: Hey, did the kids seem weird tonight at dinner?
Edmund: Weird for our kids or just weird?
Maria: I don't know. Just Sammy was cracking up through dinner, and I swear Maddie was kicking him under the table.
Maria: So I don't know. You think they're up to something?
Edmund: Like what?
Maria: I don't know. Beats me. Just hope I don't find a frog in my bed or something.
Edmund: Well, if you do, I hope he brought his own tux because tonight is strictly black tie.
Maria: What's tonight?
Edmund: I didn't tell you? Oh, must have slipped my mind. You and I have a date to get married.
Maria: What? What do you mean, we're getting married? We're getting married?
Edmund: Married. We're getting married. We're getting remarried. We're going to renew our vows.
Maria: Edmund, tonight we're getting married?
Edmund: Unless you have other plans.
Maria: No, I was just -- I was just reading, like, a murder mystery tonight that I was going to finish.
Edmund: The butler did it, ok?
Edmund: So Iím going to put you down for a wedding in the chapel with all the trimmings in about an hour, ok?
Maria: Wait, wait, wait. I can't get ready in an hour. I can't do my hair and my makeup and all the -- I don't even have anything to wear. Oh, my God, I've got nothing to -- I can't just go in jeans to the wedding. I don't have a dress.
Edmund: I already thought of that.
Maria: What did you do? Edmund Grey? What did you --
Edmund: It wasn't me.
Maria: Oh, my God. Oh, my God, this is gorgeous. This is gorgeous.
Edmund: Read the card.
Maria: "Dearest Maria, only a killer taping schedule could keep me from your wedding. The dress is designer, but the love we feel for you and Edmund is straight from the heart. Be happy and hold on tight. Love, Hayley, Mateo, and Enzo." Oh, "P.S. -- Email photos or die." Ok. Oh, my God, this is unbelievable. It's amazing.
Sam, Maddie, and Isabella: Surprise!
Maria: What do you mean, surprise? Get over here, sneaky-sneaks. Did you think you could pull one over on your mom? Oh, my gosh, you guys are cute.
Maddie: Sammy almost gave it away.
Sam: Did not.
Edmund: Ok, phase one is complete, ok? Listen, I got to go over to the chapel and go over some last-minute details with father Claude.
Maria: Oh, you got father Claude?
Maria: Oh -- ok, you thought of everything.
Edmund: Yes, I do.
Edmund: See you in church.
Maddie: Mommy, you're going to be the most beautiful bride ever.
Maria: Thank you. Do you think?
Isabella: The children have some things for you.
Maria: More surprises? Ok, do I need to close my eyes or anything? Should I not look?
Maddie: You can see.
Maria: No? Ok. All right.
Maddie: Here. It's something borrowed from me.
Maria: Ok. Oh, Maddie. It's your St. Christopher medal that daddy gave you. Thank you. I will take very, very good care of this. Thank you.
Sam: And this is something new from me.
Maria: Ok, what's this?
Sam: I bought it with my own money.
Maria: Your own money? It is a --
Sam: He's a power lord.
Maria: Yes, he is a power lord. Thank you very much, my love. Thank you. He will power me right -- whoa -- right down the aisle. That's very cool.
Maddie: And here's something also from me. It's blue -- something blue.
Maria: This is your baby blanket -- what's left.
Isabella: It's all that's left, but it still has a lot of love in it.
Maria: I've got all the love in the world right here. This is incredible.
Maria: We're going to a wedding!
Mary: I'm sure that Jack can hear us, and I just thought that a little subliminal cheerleading would help to boost his spirits and to help him hold on.
Erica: Yes, of course, Mary. But exactly how did you know that help was on its way? How did you know that we had already found a donor?
Mary: I didn't actually know. As I just said to you, I believed that it would happen.
Erica: And that's all there is to it?
Mary: What more could there be?
Erica: Oh, Jack. Jack, I'm here, darling, and I love you. I love you so much. We are going to weather this crisis the way we always have, and our love is going to be stronger and we're going to be closer because we have each other. We always have and we always will because no force -- no force could ever come between us.
Tad: Ah - I've already taken one in the chops because of you, remember?
Mia: What are you doing here?
Tad: Strolling. What are you doing, trolling for bad boys?
Mia: Oh, please. Can it, charm boy.
Tad: Charm boy -- sounds like a third-rate superhero. Bad boys -- that's where we left it at the gym, wasn't it?
Mia: Look, this is my time, ok? Just for me.
Tad: Yeah, fine. By all means. You're welcome to it. But will you accept a piece of advice? Speaking as a former member of the club, I can tell you there's two types of bad boys out there, ok? There's your devil-may-care what-the-hell life of the party and then there's your garden-variety pond scum. You just make sure you don't go scratching around door number two, ok?
Mia: And which door are you hiding behind?
Tad: Me? I've been taken out of the rotation. What -- what exactly is your problem?
Mia: My problem?
Tad: Your problem.
Mia: Guys who think they're God's gift to women. Promise breakers, guys who cheat with their interns. Guys who cheat with their own freaking wives. Men. Heartless, self-absorbed, brains-in-their-pants men!
Tad: Well, I guess you got to love them.
Mia: No, I tried that.
Tad: No, not hard enough.
Mia: Oh, really? Really? What does that mean?
Tad: It means it's ironic that you're trying to beat me up for the second time when you're the one that deserves a kick in the head.
Mia: Oh. And where did you get that, huh?
Tad: I get that from the fact that Jake made a mistake. I'd be the first person to tell him that, you know? And I did. But so did you, didn't you? You snared yourself a real nice guy, and you promised him a great big happily-ever-after, and then you started doing the backstroke like a cat on a wet kitchen floor when it got a little too real for you. So don't come bitching to me about how all men are garbage or whining because Jake tried to make himself feel better by grabbing somebody who occasionally looked up from her palm pilot while they were doing it.
Mia: Oh, you -- ugh.
Tad: There you go. Whoa! Oh. Ow. Uh-uh-uh-uh.
Maddie: Mom, you look so beautiful.
Maria: Thank you. Thank you, sweetie. Sammy, what do you think?
Maria: I'll take "wow." That'll work. Thank you.
Stella: Excuse me. Ma'am?
Maria: Hey, Stella.
Stella: I've come to walk the children down to the chapel.
Maria: Oh, ok. You guys go ahead and go with Stella. I'm going to finish up my hair and stuff and get dressed, and I'll meet you in a second, ok?
Maddie: Don't forget your something borrowed and something blue.
Maria: How could I?
Sam: And your power lord.
Maria: And my power lord.
Sam: Am not!
Maria: Thank you.
Sam: Am not.
Maria: Thanks, you guys. Now I'm just missing my something old. I think that's it.
Isabella: Come. Sit.
Maria: Oh, Mama. You wore this comb at your wedding. This is beautiful.
Isabella: Now you can wear it at yours.
Maria: Thank you so much. I know that this is just answer to all your prayers.
Isabella: A mother prays so many things for her children -- to be strong, to be happy, to seek God, to find a purpose in life.
Maria: My life is very full. Very full and very blessed. And I -- te ador, Mama.
Isabella: Te ador, Maria.
Maria: Gracias. I love you.
Isabella: Ok, now. That's enough.
Maria: Ok. Ok, enough.
Isabella: Now, let's get you dressed.
Isabella: Edmund's waited long enough.
Greenlee: Let's see. Yeah, yeah, yeah. You know, I like black. I really do. I think I need some color. Ok, you know what? Need some color. Let's see. Perfect. Perfect. Yeah. I think I've found my medium. Enchantment eye color number three, graffiti a go-go. And you go-go, girl.
Greenlee: Carlos! And then there were lights!
Carlos: I have to check some other outlets. I won't be long.
Greenlee: Oh, no hurry. You were right, mi amigo. This is exactly what I needed. Hmm.
Erica: Mary, are you waiting for me?
Mary: Oh, no. Why?
Erica: I'm just surprised that you're still here.
Mary: Well, I'm here for Jack.
Erica: But I'm here.
Mary: I know that, but I thought he would need all of our prayers when he goes down to surgery.
Erica: Mary, I am, quite frankly, puzzled. Why are you hovering here when you are neither needed nor wanted?
Mary: I don't think that's for you to say.
Erica: Yes, it is. I'm Jack's fiancťe. And from what I gather, you are no more to Jack than a passing acquaintance at the country club. Mary, if your life is so empty or desperate that you have set your sights on someone that you perceive to be free and vulnerable, let me assure you that Jack is neither one of those things. Do we understand each other?
Mary: Erica, I wonder who donated that blood for Jack. Don't you?
Erica: No, it doesn't matter who donated the blood for Jack. All that matters is that he's getting what he needs.
[Pachelbel "Canon" plays]
Edmund: Father Claude.
Father Claude: Are you nervous?
Edmund: No. Not when it feels this right. This is it, father. I got my signal.
Isabella: Here we go. Here we go. Just stand right there. When the music starts, you know what to do. Ok? Stand a little further apart. There you go. Ok.
["Wedding March" plays]
Father Claude: Well -- you took your own sweet time getting here.
Maria: Yes, I did.
Father Claude: Dearly beloved, we are gathered here in the sight of God in the presence of this company to reunite Edmund and Maria in holy matrimony. It is fitting, therefore, that we should begin by asking God's blessing on the marriage service. Let us pray. Dear God, in your mercy, you have chosen to answer our prayers and bring Maria back to us. We now ask you to bring your grace to their union and to their family, in Christís name, amen.
Father Claude: Edmund, Maria, please join hands.
Father Claude: Edmund, will thou have this woman to be thy wedded wife, to live together in a holy state of matrimony? Will thou love her, comfort her, and honor her in sickness and in health, and, forsaking all others, keep only unto her as long as ye both shall live?
Edmund: I will.
Father Claude: Maria, will thou have this man to be thy wedded husband, to live together in the holiest state of matrimony? Will thou love him, comfort and honor him in sickness and in health, and, forsaking all others, keep only unto him so long as ye both shall live?
Maria: I will.
Father Claude: Now Isabella, Maddie, and Sam will read from first Corinthians.
Sam: "Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful."
Isabella: "It is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way. It is not irritable or resentful. It does not rejoice in wrong, but rejoices in right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things."
Maddie: "Love never ends. So faith, hope, love abide, but the greatest of these is love."
Father Claude: This is where the bride and groom sometimes break with tradition and speak from their hearts.
Maria: Ok, no pressure here. Last minute. Oh -- I stood before with you in front of God and our family and took your hand as my partner, and I stand again here today and I take you today and all the days as my husband. God has given us this incredible gift as a second chance. And I remember the first time that we dedicated our lives to each other. I just remember how excited I was, knowing that we had our entire future ahead of us, our entire lives ahead of us. But this time, I look around and I realize that it's all right here. Our entire lives are right here. I mean, everything that matters -- all our hopes and dreams and promises are here in this room. And as long as it took me to find my way back home, I mean, as -- as hard and as lonely as that journey was, I realize that every single step was leading me back to you. And I thank God for putting us back together where we belong, where we'll always belong. Think it's your turn.
Edmund: Ok. Ahem. I didn't think it was possible. You're more beautiful now than you were the first time that we got married.
Maria: Thank you.
Edmund: And we had a pretty good first run, didn't we?
Maria: We did.
Edmund: With Sam and Maddie and lots of blessings. Some rough spots, too, like when we were separated. And I remember feeling a panic because I was so far from home, and home is always where you were. And then one day, I looked up, and I couldn't believe it. There you were. It's like five seconds had passed, not five years. And I said, "oh, thank you, God. Ok, I'll take it from here. All right, Iíll just -- I'll just hold on tight and I won't blink and I won't -- I'll never let her go." But that's not what a marriage is. Marriage is the ultimate act of faith. It's knowing in your hearts that we're going to be together forever, even if we don't have all the time in the world. And it's asking yourself if you had to do it all over again and knowing the answer is yes in a heartbeat. It's why we're here. And it's why I thank God every day for the gift of you, my love, my wife.
Edmund: Thank you. This ring I give thee in token and pledge of our constant faith and abiding love.
Maria: It's beautiful. Thank you. And I give you this ring as token and pledge of my constant faith and abiding love.
Father Claude: For as much as Edmund and Maria have consented together in wedlock and witnessed the same before God and this company and have pledged their faith each to the other by the joining of hands and the giving and receiving of rings, I declare that they are husband and wife. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Those whom God has joined together, let no man put asunder.
Tad: You know, you're a whole lot of fun to look at, but I think I'm just going to have to pass.
Mia: Oh, God. You are such a hypocrite. Oh, my God. You walk around like the love doctor, doling out all kinds of advice. But when it comes down to you, you're just all talk, no action. The thought of going skin-to-skin with a woman and making love to a woman, it scares you. Admit it. Go ahead, go ahead! It scares you.
Tad: I may be afraid of a lot of things -- like spiders, snakes, and seniors behind the wheel of a car -- but getting busy with a beautiful woman isn't one of them.
Mia: Oh, really? Ok. So, what? So, what, it's just me you're afraid of? Hmm? Me?
Tad: Why? Because you supposedly have a great left hook?
Mia: Because I'm Liza's sister. I'm your brother's ex. I know what I want, and I'm not afraid to go and grab it.
Tad: Or maybe because you're just a big nut ball.
Mia: Oh, come on. Just admit it. Admit it. Jake's leftovers aren't good enough for you. Is that what it is?
Tad: You know something? If this is the real you, then Iím not surprised that you keep getting dumped on your butt, because this whole pity aria is a real turnoff.
Mia: Oh, go ahead. Pull a Jake. Walk away. Go back to your empty house with your memories of Dixie and your glory days when one look from Tad the cad made women shake and shiver.
Tad: Don't you talk to me about Dixie. Don't you dare talk to me about my wife. What, you honestly believe that making love to me would solve any of your problems?
Mia: My problems?
Tad: Your problems.
Woman: Excuse me, Ms. Kane? May I get your signature on Mr. Montgomery's surgical consent forms?
Woman: You're the closest thing to next of kin.
Erica: Oh, of course. Yes, of course.
Dr. Orlin: Ms. Kane?
Dr. Orlin: We're ready to prep Mr. Montgomery for surgery.
Woman: Don't you worry. Dr. Orlin's the best. Your fiancť couldn't be in better hands.
Erica: Thank you, thank you. That's very reassuring.
Woman: And what luck they found a blood match.
Woman: The talk of the floor. If you need anything, my name's Eileen.
Erica: Thank you, Eileen. Oh, actually, Eileen, yes, there is something that you can do for me.
Erica: I am so grateful to whoever it was who donated the blood to Jack. I just -- I would like to be able to find out who that donor is and thank them.
Eileen: You canít.
Erica: Excuse me?
Eileen: Donor info is strictly confidential.
Erica: But this is just such a special circumstance. I really would like to thank whoever it is personally just to express my gratitude for their saving Jack's life.
Eileen: Given his rare blood type, it's probably a family relation.
Erica: Well, actually, the only available family relation to Jack is my daughter, his niece, Bianca, and she tested negative.
Eileen: Then this really is a full-blown miracle.
Greenlee: Out with the old -- oh. Would you like to try the latest in Fusion color? Enchantment? Oh, no, they tanked ages ago. Fusion is the face of the future. Hmm. That's right. That's right.
Carlos: What -- what did you do?
Greenlee: I gave the cosmetics counter an extreme makeover.
Carlos: What --
Greenlee: It was way overdue.
Carlos: What happened to the Enchantment display?
Carlos: Yes, Enchantment. Where did all this come from?
Greenlee: Some store lackey had it behind the counter, and I am going to have to tell to Maxie Berlin about that.
Carlos: I don't believe this.
Greenlee: Me, neither. Enchantment was hogging the counter space. This way, we can share the spotlight.
Carlos: You call this sharing?
Greenlee: Enchantment doesn't need to sweat the competition. Erica -- she is like a classic. She's like a Model T or "Gone With the Wind."
Carlos: Five seconds --
Greenlee: Erica Kane, having it all -- or maybe she's just had it.
Carlos: You think this is funny? And this?
Greenlee: Oh! Are you kidding? It's freaking hysterical.
Carlos: Ha-ha, huh? You know what? Play time is over. You're going to clean up that poster and you'll put the display back the way it was.
Greenlee: Or what, you're going to ground me? Send me to bed without my supper?
Carlos: If you insist on acting like a child, I'll treat you like one.
Greenlee: Ooh, put me over your knee? Hey, hey -- don't you wreck my masterpiece.
Greenlee: This is a statement. Erica's reign as cosmetics queen is over.
Carlos: You're serious, aren't you?
Greenlee: This display is staying exactly the way it is.
Carlos: You spoiled little -- fine. Have it your way, but have it alone, my dear.
Greenlee: Fine, fine. Forget you! Forget Erica and my mother and every other cloud that's raining on my parade. I don't need any of you!
Carlos: Esto seria mi suerte! Claro que si. Claro que si.
Greenlee: Yeah? What?
Carlos: Yeah, well, when you turned the power back on -
Carlos: Well, it tripped on the automatic security system.
Woman: Eileen? We're ready to move Mr. Montgomery to the O.R.
Eileen: Let's roll.
Maria: You better put me down, or you're going to put your back out and this is going to be a very painful evening.
Edmund: Looks like we pulled it off.
Maria: Oh. Oh, my God, I feel like I walked into a fairy tale. This is beautiful.
Edmund: Don't you love how Isabella burned rubber taking the kids out of here so we could be alone?
Maria: Yeah, and Maddie, after the ceremony, she kept asking me what "asunder" was.
Edmund: She did great with the reading.
Maria: Yeah, and Sammy was so cute. He was holding those rings like they were nitroglycerine. So adorable.
Edmund: Hey, Mrs. Grey --
Edmund: Are we going to spend our entire second honeymoon night talking about our kids?
Maria: I don't know. What did we do on our first honeymoon night?
Edmund: Whatever it was, kids weren't part of the program.
Maria: Well, I seem to remember something about -- oh, a little something-something about champagne from the first time. Oh, well, look at there. God bless those little wedding helpers. And I also seem to remember something about a toast. I think you gave a toast. Am I right?
Edmund: To my beautiful wife. "Come, grow old with me. The best is yet to be."
Maria: And then what happened?
Edmund: I think we improvised the rest.
Maria: The whole night?
Edmund: At least. Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you Mr. And Mrs. Edmund Grey.
Maria: I love the sound of that.
Singer: The way you walked into my soul the day that we met you touched my heart you made me whole how could I forget? The way we felt it rung so true your hand in mine dancing eyes close to you is more than a sigh all the memories unwind
Singers: Baby I can remember every touch and kiss you're the only one who makes me feel like this like a perfect scene on a movie screen
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Mary: You think you know everything about me, don't you? Well, a word of advice -- you donít.
Henry: I'm ready to go after what's important and not give up until I get it.Carlos: You want to fight? Bring it on, Princess. Let's see what you got.
