>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Alma: My son is not a cheater.
Henry: Don't blame yourself for what happened.
Alma: I don't blame myself. I blame her.
Carlos: We're stuck here till the morning, till the store opens.
Erica: I really would like to thank whoever it is personally for saving Jack's life.
Eileen: Given his rare blood type, it's probably a family relation.

Maggie: Hi. What are you doing here?
Henry: I wanted to see if -- if you were ok. God, you're so beautiful.
Carlos: Maldita Sea.
Greenlee: Hey, which one do you like better?
Carlos: I would like to be out of here.
Greenlee: A wizard like you couldn't hot-wire something and unlock the doors?
Carlos: Even the phones are locked after hours.
Greenlee: Old lady Lacey keeps this place tighter than Fort Knox. Thank God you have your cell.
Carlos: Not with me. Where's yours?
Greenlee: Mine is in my other bag. So -- we're really stuck?
Carlos: Till the store opens at 9:00 in the morning.
Greenlee: That's a long time. What are we going to do?
Carlos: There are so many possibilities.
Greenlee: Yeah. Yeah, there are.
Carlos: You know what I want to do?
Greenlee: I think I do.
Carlos: Good. Put the Enchantment display back the way it was, and then Iíll feed you.
Greenlee: Forget it.
Reggie: What's taking them so long? They should be finished sewing up Jack by now.
Joni: I know you're scared.
Reggie: You don't know anything.
Joni: Reggie, if you want to talk about it --
Reggie: I don't want to talk!
Joni: Where are you going?
Erica: Joe? Joe, how is Jackson?
Joe: The surgery is going very well. They've located the bleeder. It'll take a little time to repair.
Erica: But Jack is going to be fine?
Joe: Everything indicates a full recovery. Excuse me, Iíve got to get back to the O.R.
Erica: Yes, of course, of course. Thank you, Joe.
Bianca: Mom, do you want to go to the cafeteria? We could wait and get some coffee or something like that.
Erica: Oh, no. No, honey, thank you.
Bianca: All right, well, do you want me to bring you something back?
Erica: No, no. I'm -- Iím just -- I'm so tired, and I just need a few minutes.
Eileen: That's odd. The paperwork on the Montgomery donor is missing.
Mary: Excuse me. Any word on Jackson Montgomery?
Erica: Well, Mary, I should have known you'd be back.
Mary: Yes, Erica. What is it?
Maggie: I canít. I canít.
Henry: I know you're still upset with me.
Maggie: You know, I appreciate you coming to the funeral. I really do. But it just doesn't make up for what you did.
Henry: I know it was --
Maggie: No, stop with the "I knows" because you don't know. I trusted you. And you left me hanging. And I can't just forget that.
Henry: You don't trust me.
Maggie: Well, you can't really be surprised.
Henry: I want to try to explain.
Maggie: Please, just don't --
Henry: Look, just hear me out, ok? Look, I always did what I was told -- by my mother, by my teachers. I mean, I know what my culture expects. I never questioned any of it until you gave me the courage to break out.
Maggie: And I'm really glad that you're thinking outside of the box, but, you know, it's just a little too hot to get all deep --
Henry: You're the first person who ever saw who I really was, not who I was trying to be or who I was expected to be. When I saw myself through your eyes, I liked the man that I saw -- until I blew it.
Maggie: Big time.
Henry: Maggie, everything I thought I knew was inside out. School was everything, and now that's messed up.
Maggie: Well, lucky for you, being expelled isn't fatal.
Henry: Yeah, for most people. For my mother, it's like death. She won't talk to me, and I don't know how to make it right. Or where to go or what to do next. But as messed up as everything is, I finally know what I want.
Maggie: Well, don't tell me you want me, you know, because I just don't want to hear it.
Henry: I do want you, Maggie. You're all I want.
Maggie: Well, not so long ago all you wanted was to save your own butt.
Henry: Ok, look, I panicked, but that's over. I'm ready to go after what's important and not give up until I get it. Tell me it's possible.
Reggie: Look, can you at least lay down if you're going to sleep here?
Joni: I didn't realize that --
Reggie: Why are you even still here?
Joni: I told you, I'm not leaving until we find out how Mr. Montgomery is.
Reggie: Do I look like I need you to hold my hand?
Joni: Like I would even try.
Reggie: I hate this place.
Joni: We could go to the chapel.
Reggie: Please do not come at me with that whole touchy-feely, praise-the-Lord stuff, ok? I deal my own way. You're the scariest thing in here.
Joni: I know what you need.
Reggie: Please. I do not need this. Please do not come at me with this whole power of prayer and all that other stuff. I don't need this right now, ok?
Mary: All right, Erica, what's this about?
Erica: This is about you manipulating a life-and-death situation to get a date.
Mary: That's ridiculous. Jack's just a friend. And he's engaged to you.
Erica: And I am not going to allow you to take advantage of Jack.
Mary: Allow me? You don't even know me.
Carlos: You're going to put these back and these and this. And don't forget this.
Greenlee: Give me this. This color shouldn't see the light of day.
Carlos: You're going to put these back exactly the way they were. Do you understand me?
Greenlee: What is with you? When did you become all about Enchantment?
Carlos: I'm about doing the right thing, Greenlee.
Greenlee: This is the right thing. This is where Fusion belongs, and it stays.
Carlos: This is Enchantment's space. You can't just --
Greenlee: If Fusion had this kind of exposure, we could beat the hell out of Enchantment. And now we've got a shot.
Carlos: I mean, you deserve a chance, yes, but not like this.
Greenlee: Well, how else is it supposed to happen? Am I supposed to sit around and wait like a good little girl until I get permission? I don't play that way.
Carlos: Well, you can play however you want, but I won't allow you to play your dirty tricks here.
Greenlee: I'm just taking matters into my own hands. You got a problem with that?
Carlos: On my turf? You're damn right I do. I mean, Ms. Lacey -- she depends on me. I'm not going to betray her trust for this.
Greenlee: Oh, but you'll betray me?
Carlos: Oh, because I won't give in to -- get over yourself. Clean it up now.
Greenlee: I won't be bossed around.
Carlos: And when you're done with the counters, you're going to clean the poster, make sure she has all her teeth, no glasses, and no mustache.
Greenlee: I'd rather eat linoleum.
Carlos: Don't tempt me. You better start because it's going to take a while.
Greenlee: I'm out of here.
Carlos: You're locked in.
Greenlee: I'll break out to get away from you.
Carlos: You're staying.
Greenlee: You going to make me?
Carlos: Come here.
Greenlee: What are you doing? Put me down! Put me down! Put me --
Carlos: Put everything back now.
Greenlee: Why are you being such a jerk?
Carlos: And why don't you just do what you're told?
Greenlee: Oh, my God, stop treating me like a child.
Carlos: Oh, is this the work of an adult?
Greenlee: It's an executive decision.
Carlos: It's a prank.
Greenlee: It's inspired.
Carlos: It's immature.
Greenlee: I can be immature if I want to. So just stop it with all that Neanderthal crap because Iím not going to take orders or threats or guerrilla tactics from you.
Carlos: Tired yet?
Carlos: Earlier you said you were tired, tired of fighting, of the pain. Your tears -- they made me realize that Fusion's mascara really is waterproof.
Greenlee: What? I opened up to you, and you're making fun of me? God, I hate you! Just stay away from me!
Carlos: Or what? You're going to let me have it? Bring it on, princess! Let's see what you got!
Greenlee: No, I wonít. I don't want to do this.
Henry: If I could hold you, if we could just --
Maggie: What? You thought you'd apologize again and then, what, you'd just get lucky?
Maggie: What is it with you? First you nearly ruin my future. Then you propose marriage as a consolation prize. And now you think that sex is some magic carpet ride to a happy ending.
Henry: No, I just -- I just want things to be back the way they were. And when we make love, I've never felt so close to anyone.
Maggie: You know, I used to feel the same way.
Henry: Look, I love you, Maggie.
Maggie: And I love the person who I thought you were.
Henry: Well, then give me another chance. I'll prove to you that Iím --
Maggie: You are always trying to prove something to everybody. Forget trying to prove something to me.
Henry: Look, I can't, ok?
Maggie: Well, why don't you try? Try, and then once you figure out who you want to be and what you really want, then maybe we can talk.
Henry: I want to solve this, Maggie.
Maggie: Well, we're not an o chem problem. You can't just plug in an answer and make us work out again.
Henry: Well, can't you at least let me try?
Maggie: How? How? Because I don't even know how to trust you again.
Henry: Look, you will because I'll do whatever it takes for you to look at me the way you used to.
Maggie: Henry --
Mary: Erica, Iím not after Jackson. But if I were, I certainly wouldn't have to use my daughter.
Erica: Oh, please. You knew all along that Greenlee had the same blood type, and you couldn't get her to donate fast enough.
Mary: She saved his life.
Erica: So you could help yourself.
Mary: Really, Erica, where is your gratitude?
Erica: Excuse me?
Mary: My daughter performed a selfless act by donating her blood to save a man's life, and you've reduced it to some ridiculous ploy that Iím trying to take your man away. This is absurd.
Erica: You know what's absurd? You, Mary. Your behavior is absurd. Your behavior as a woman, your behavior as a mother -- and, you know, I never thought this was possible, but the way you used your daughter, Greenlee -- I actually feel sorry for her.
Mary: You have no right to judge me or my daughter.
Erica: I have every right. Jackson is my fiancť, and he is in no condition to be assaulted by some lovesick country club acquaintance.
Mary: I don't have to assault him. All I have to do is wait. Your engagements never last very long.
Erica: Well, you're going to have to wait till you're on a walker because I hate to break it to you, Mary, but you're really not his type.
Mary: And you are?
Erica: Apparently, yes. Look, a word of advice -- just why don't you go back to doing what you do best. Cabana boys, right?
Mary: You think you know everything about me, don't you? Well, a word of advice -- you donít.
Erica: Joe -- Joe, how is Jackson? Is the surgery over?
Joe: It is. And it was a complete success.
Erica: Oh, Joe. Oh, thank you. Thank you so much for telling me that.
Bianca: Well, I can tell from mom's face that uncle Jack is doing better.
Joe: Yeah, you're right. The bleeding has been stopped, and we expect a complete recovery.
Reggie: That's my man Jack.
Joe: Although, if we hadn't found the right blood, you know, it might have been a different story.
Erica: Yeah. Can we see him?
Reggie: Yeah, I want to see Jack with my own eyes. Can I go?
Joe: Well, I'm sure he'd like to see you, too. But for the moment, only Erica can visit.
Erica: Oh. And not Bianca, either?
Joe: Well, I'm sorry. But soon, soon. Tomorrow, maybe.
Erica: Well, honey, look, it's late, you know? So why don't you go home, why don't you get some rest, all right?
Bianca: Ok, all right. And please give uncle Jack a kiss for me.
Erica: Of course.
Bianca: And call me if you need anything.
Erica: I will, honey.
Bianca: Ok. Good night.
Erica: Good night.
Joe: Come on. I'll take you to I.C.U.
Reggie: Well, Doc? Can you tell Jack I'll take care of all his things for him?
Joe: Yeah, I'll let him know.
Reggie: Thank you.
Mr. Stafford: Joni?
Greenlee: I don't want to fight with you.
Carlos: Really? Then what do you want from me?
Greenlee: I want you to be yourself, be Carlos.
Carlos: I am.
Greenlee: I mean, the Carlos that I know -- the one who puts sculptures on my desk, who tells me to close my eyes and feel the music. Or was that just an act?
Carlos: No, that's me.
Greenlee: Then be nice.
Carlos: Nice. Right. Meaning what? Let you do whatever you want? Do whatever you want, agree with everything you say, stand by and watch you hurt people?
Greenlee: This is not hurting anybody.
Carlos: It hurts you. You say you want credibility and success, and then you pull a stunt like this. You don't even care who gets hit in the crossfire.
Greenlee: Fine. Fine. You know what? You're so worried about your precious integrity, about being a lap dog to Mrs. Lacey? Then you fix it.
Carlos: Greenlee, I'm not following your lead. You're spoiled. You're immature. You're insulting.
Greenlee: What are you going to do about it?
Carlos: It's not what Iím going to do, it's what you're going to do.
Mr. Stafford: I waited for your phone call. You didn't answer your cell phone. I was about to get worried when I heard the news. Oh, Joni, what happened? Were you with Jack when he collapsed?
Joni: Actually --
Reggie: Well, you know, actually, she really didn't see Jack go down, you know. She hasn't left his side for a minute, though.
Mr. Stafford: So you were both with him?
Reggie: Oh, yeah, you know, as soon as Jack fell, you know, we called the ambulance --
Joni: Reggie, why don't you go check on Mr. Montgomery or get a soda or something? I can deal. Dad -- uh -- I lied about working late.
Mr. Stafford: So you're saying you didn't go to his loft? Well, if you weren't with him, then how did you end up here?
Joni: Well, we found out that Jackson needed blood, and we just -- we came over to get tested.
Mr. Stafford: We?
Joni: Reggie and I.
Mr. Stafford: So where exactly have you and Reggie been all this time?
Joni: We went to a graduation party at the beach.
Mr. Stafford: Unsupervised, I assume? Joni, was there drinking?
Joni: There was a keg, but --
Mr. Stafford: Oh, Joni.
Joni: Dad, I swear I wasn't drinking. I wasn't.
Mr. Stafford: When did you decide that it was all right to lie to me?
Joni: I just -- I don't know.
Mr. Stafford: Yeah, well, whatever reason you think you had, it is not acceptable. Your mother and I have always trusted you, Joni, and I don't want that to change.
Joni: I know. I'm sorry.
Mr. Stafford: You're grounded -- indefinitely. And I do not want you to have any contact with this -- Reggie.
Joni: We work together.
Mr. Stafford: Zero. Do you understand me?
Joni: Yes, Sir.
Erica: Can I stay for a while?
Joe: Yeah, long as you like.
Erica: Thank you, Joe. Thank you for everything.
Joe: You get some sleep yourself. Hmm?
Erica: Ok. Did you hear that, Jack? Did you hear it? You're going to be fine. You're going to be just fine. And I'm going to make sure that you stay fine. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry about that little scene earlier. It's just that I really love you, Jack. And when I thought that you and Anna -- well -- sometimes, I make mistakes, don't I? But you love me all the time anyway. Oh, Jack, I'm going to make it up to you. I'm going to make it all up to you, I promise. You just rest now. I'll be back.
Henry: Too hot to sleep, huh? Mom? Say something.
Alma: What is there to say? You cheated. You were expelled from school. You threw your life away, and you blame me.
Henry: No, I don't blame you, Mom. Can't you see it's more complicated than that?
Alma: Nothing was complicated until you got involved with that girl.
Henry: No, don't put this on Maggie.
Alma: Maggie is the one that gave you these ideas that you were --
Lee: I'll come back.
Henry: No, wait, I want you to hear this, too, Uncle Lee.
Henry: I want to apologize. I said some things that I shouldn't have, and I never meant to disrespect you.
Alma: Your apology changes nothing.
Henry: Look, maybe I won't be a doctor, but I'm still your son.
Alma: My son loved me.
Henry: No, I do love you, Mom. I just want to be who I am.
Alma: A musician? She gave you that idea.
Henry: No, it was always there. I just tried to hide it because I wanted to please you.
Alma: And turn your back on your medicine and your dream --
Henry: It was your dream.
Alma: To please her. There is nothing to discuss.
Lee: Alma -- Alma, please. Let Henry speak.
Alma: To tell me of his love for Maggie? Of his exciting life as a guitar player?
Henry: Why can't you accept me and love me no matter what I am?
Alma: You betrayed your uncle and I after all the work we did to bring you here and give you a better life. We raised you here in America so you would have an opportunity to --
Henry: That's right, Mother. An opportunity to be and to do anything I choose. Only you never let me make any choices for myself.
Alma: Then choose now, Henry. Respect my wishes or leave my house.
Lee: Alma, no.
Henry: Your wishes. You want me to give up Maggie.
Bianca: Hey. What's up? Trying to stay cool?
Maggie: I can't sleep. Why are you here?
Bianca: I was just on my way home from the hospital, and I needed to clear my head.
Maggie: Oh, I heard about your uncle Jack. How is he?
Bianca: He's out of surgery. He's doing much better. They think he's going to be ok.
Maggie: Well, good. I'm glad.
Bianca: Yeah. Oh God, Iím sorry about Leora. I know her funeral was today.
Maggie: Yeah. You know, death is bad enough, but when it happens to a baby -- I think she started to recognize me, too.
Bianca: Oh God, Maggie. I am so sorry. No wonder you can't sleep.
Maggie: It should be about that, right? No, but I should be ranting and raving to God about taking a baby away, but I can't sleep because of a guy.
Bianca: Because of Henry? Oh.
Maggie: He came to see me tonight.
Bianca: Wow. After he was so spineless? What, did he slither under the door?
Maggie: Oh, I haven't talked to you. Oh, no, he confessed. He admitted that he cheated.
Bianca: Whoa. So, what happened?
Maggie: Well, he got expelled. Well, even worse -- well, for him, anyway -- his mom's not speaking to him.
Bianca: Are you?
Bianca: Are you guys back together again?
Maggie: Well, that's what he wants.
Bianca: Well, what do you want?
Maggie: Well, I used to want him, but Iím not sure. Now I don't know, you know? But he gave one hell of a pitch.
Bianca: Ah, let me guess. He wants to prove to you that you can still trust him, that your love will be stronger than ever.
Maggie: Lena gave you the same speech.
Maggie: Henry's really determined to make it up to me. He even showed up at Leora's funeral today.
Bianca: Yeah, well, Lena showed up and gave blood, despite her needle phobia.
Maggie: So what do we do? I mean, they do a good deed, and we forget that they screwed us over?
Bianca: On the other hand, if we really do love them, what, are we supposed to just throw it all away because of one mistake?
Maggie: Well, this may sound crazy, but I thought the man that I love should come in, sweep me up off my feet, and slay the dragon, you know? Instead, my butt gets singed while he explores his options.
Bianca: Yeah, well, talk about crazy. I thought it was me and Lena against the world. And then it turned out that it's me and Lena and Michael Cambias and Boyd and anybody else that she can use to get what she wants.
Maggie: Well, do you still love her?
Bianca: Do you still love Henry?
Maggie: My question is, can you still love someone if you don't trust them?
Bianca: Greenlee figured it out.
Maggie: Ok, great. What's the secret?
Greenlee: You know what your problem is? You don't see the big picture. So what if I changed the display from Enchantment to Fusion? It's not about disrespecting you or Laceyís. It's about beating the competition.
Carlos: Oh, this isn't about beating the competition. You just want to slam Erica Kane. It's not about your product placement. It's a little tantrum you're having. You're not a businesswoman, you're a little brat. And -- but, no -- it ends now. Do you understand? What? What? What are you smiling at?
Greenlee: Well, you're kind of cute when you're angry.
Carlos: It's not going to work.
Greenlee: No, no, I mean it. Your nostrils kind of flare.
Carlos: And you've got work to do.
Greenlee: You got to admit -- I mean, it's pretty hilarious. You see? You love it. So get out of my face.
Carlos: Greenlee, I admit I love your passion.
Greenlee: You do?
Carlos: But your technique -- it's bad.
Greenlee: Hmm. Well, why don't you give it a chance?
Carlos: Hmm. Why don't you put this where it belongs?
Greenlee: I'm not saying that I will, but if I do your work, what do I get?
Carlos: Something you've wanted for a long time.
Greenlee: Really? What's that?
Greenlee: Oh. Right.
Carlos: You're still hungry, aren't you?
Greenlee: Yeah. Yeah, sure.
Carlos: Good. Because when I come back, I expect every Enchantment product to be exactly where it was. No food till then.
Greenlee: Food? It's definitely an improvement.
Greenlee: I thought I put it in my other bag.
Mary: I have a confession to make. Erica's right. I want you. I do. Look at you. You don't look any older than the boy I fell in love with all those years ago. Remember our summer, Jack? You were my big, handsome pool boy. Oh, God, I was such a fool. Why didn't you tell me that you were one of the Montgomerys? I only broke it off with you because I thought you were from a poor family and that it would never work between us. Served me right to end up in that miserable marriage with Roger. But I never stopped loving you. Not for a second. And Erica doesn't deserve you. She treats you like a possession, not like a man who deserves to be completely loved by his woman.
Reggie: Even out cold, Jack racks them up.
Erica: Reggie --
Reggie: Oh, how you doing? You shouldn't go in there.
Erica: Well, why not? Is something wrong?
Reggie: Oh, no, no. Everything's fine. You know, it's just that Jack's kind of out if, you know?
Erica: I know.
Reggie: It could be hours.
Erica: I know. I know that, too.
Reggie: Well, don't you want to go home? Get some rest? You know, get rid of those dark circles before you see Jack?
Erica: What dark circles? Reggie, what are you up to? What's going on?
Reggie: Well, why would you say that? I'm just trying to help you out.
Reggie: No, seriously.
Erica: How dare she. How dare -- did you know about this? That Mary Smythe is obsessed. She's completely delusional if she thinks she's going to get Jackson.
Maggie: Greenlee just knew? I don't think I can trust myself enough to make that call. You know, I thought I cut Henry loose until he showed up and planted that kiss on me, and that's all I could even care about.
Bianca: Look, there's nothing wrong with a kiss.
Maggie: Yeah, except Henry wanted to cover all the bases, like sex could fix everything.
Bianca: It can sure help.
Maggie: So if -- so if Lena just walked in right now and put the moves on, you would just forgive her?
Bianca: At this point, I'm not letting her close enough to try.
Maggie: Oh, because you're afraid you'd give in.
Bianca: Yeah. I don't know. I just keep telling myself that I should just walk away.
Maggie: Well, that would be easy if it wasn't for one thing.
Bianca: What? That we're incurable romantics? That we're just suckers for love?
Maggie: No, the sex is so awesome. Well, come on. It would be easy if it sucked, right?
Bianca: You are so busted, Maggie. You know that it's so much more than the sex. I mean, come on. Henry writing those love songs for you? Lena looking into my eyes like we have a secret from the rest of the world? I mean, I don't want to give that up. Neither do you.
Maggie: Ok, you're right. You're right. Ok, so Lenaís the perfect package, and so is Henry. What do we do?
Bianca: I don't know. Just keep our hearts open, wait for that moment.
Maggie: Right, when we just know. I don't see it. I just don't see it. God, does love just get easier with practice?
Alma: You have made your choice?
Lee: Henry -- Henry, don't do this, huh?
Henry: I have to.
Carlos: Did I hear a phone?
Greenlee: If there was a phone here, don't you think Iíd be on it, screaming for someone to come here and get me away from you?
Carlos: Get to work.
Erica: Reggie, what's there to know about Jackson and this woman?
Reggie: Oh, nothing. I didn't say anything, ok?
Erica: Reggie --
Reggie: They're friends. I mean, what's the big deal?
Erica: What do you mean, they're friends? Exactly how friendly are they? Is something going on between them?
Reggie: No, you know, there's nothing going on now, so you know --
Erica: What do you mean, "now"? Are you telling -- did something happen between them in the past?
Reggie: You know, a gentleman never tells, so --
Erica: Reggie --
Reggie: I got to go. Nice see you.
Erica: Reggie --
Mary: I know I should have- I know I should have told you, but for all these years, I felt that it would be such a huge mistake. But now Greenlee's our blessing, and because of her, maybe -- maybe we'll have another chance.
Nurse: Ma'am, you're not allowed to be in here.
Mary: Oh, I'm sorry. I was just leaving.
Reggie's voice: You know about Jackson and Mary?
Joe's voice: I'm surprised we were able to find someone not related to Jackson with the same rare blood type in such a short period of time.
Eileen's voice: Finding a stranger with a matching phenotype -- it truly is a miracle.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Adam: I think it's time you hit the pause button on your libido.
Kendall: Are you moving?
Aidan: No, I'm leaving.
Maria: So are you ready for Dr. Grey?
Simone: I'm Greenlee. Yeah.
Woman: And that means you're --
Simone: Kendall. Yes.
Carlos: How do you like it?
Greenlee: I like it a lot.
