[phone rings]

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?

Jake: Mia, Iíd like for you to meet my fiancťe.

Maria: I don't care if I remember being with Edmund. It's not going to change the way I feel about you.

Adam: We can hurt Michael a lot worse than a prison sentence. Together, we're unstoppable.

Carlos: This ought to do until we get out of here. Greenlee? I thought you were hungry.

Carlos: Greenlee, what are you up to? Yes. Greenlee? Greenlee?

Michael: I think you'll be pleased with the report.

Adam: Pleased? How?

Michael: Well, by the time you get to the end of it, you'll know as much about the Tokyo branch of Cambias Industries as my father does.

Adam: Well, that was quick. How did you manage that?

Michael: Hmm. The easy way -- by getting into bed with a former colleague.

Adam: Was that wise?

Michael: It was fun and it worked.

Adam: Cambias, I think it's time you hit the pause button on your libido. Or have you forgotten all about your current legal troubles?

Michael: The attempted rape charge? Forget it. The D.A. has no case.

Adam: Really? Mr. Montgomery thinks otherwise.

Michael: Well, he has to. He's engaged to the victim. Who else is going to believe Erica Kane? Woman cries rape anytime a man tips his hat.

Adam: You sound very confident.

Michael: Hey listen, throw in the lady's history of bed-hopping, and the case will never even make it to court.

Adam: I hope you're right. But in the meantime, I suggest you keep your nose clean.

Michael: Well, you can suggest anything you like, Adam.

Woman: Excuse me, Mr. Chandler, but your ex-wife is here.

Adam: I'll be right out. I'll be back to go over those Hong Kong reports with you.

Michael: Another success story.

Colby: Daddy, are you in here?

Michael: Hi, honey. I'm sorry. Your daddy's out talking with your mommy, but Iím sure he'll be back in a minute. Do you want to come over here and sit, we'll wait for him together?

Simone: Hello, Greenlee? Ugh -- hello, Greenleeís answering machine. Would you please remind Greenlee that Bonnie Fuller is going to be here at Fusion at any second? That would be Bonnie Fuller of "US" weekly magazine, the Bonnie Fuller who's coming to interview Greenlee and Kendall especially because I pitched them to her as the two hottest entrepreneurs in the country. God, of all days not to be in jail. Finally, a face.

Mia: Something wrong?

Simone: Oh. Well, there's going to be if Greenlee and Kendall don't get here soon. I can't believe this! I mean, I have worked for weeks to get Bonnie Fuller here, and --

Mia: The woman who edits for "US" weekly magazine?

Simone: Yes! I talked her into doing a story about Fusion's founders. And now that she's on her way, the founders can't be found. Mia, what's the gift?

Mia: Oh, this?

Simone: Yeah.

Mia: This is just a little something for Jake and his new fiancť.

Simone: Mia, why are you torturing yourself like this?

Mia: Oh, no, this is no trouble at all. I think that every wedding should start off with a bang.

Simone: A bang? Ok, what's in the box, Mia?

Mia: Well, let's just say when Carolyn opens this, she's going to die. I think this ribbon needs a bit more curl, don't you?

Simone: Mia, what's in the box? Tell me right now.

Maria: Totally was, the way that Hayley says.

Maddie: That was the best wedding ever.

Maria: I thought so. It was the best surprise wedding ever, that's for sure. I'm still in shock.

Maddie: I wish I could've been at your first wedding.

Maria: Uh --

Edmund: That could've been a little bit difficult to arrange.

Maria: Definitely.

Maddie: I know that.

Maria: Well, you know what? We'll do it again in 10, 20 years.

Edmund: Can't wait that long.

[Maria laughs]

Mia: So there I was, waiting for Jake to open the door at his parents' house, expecting --

Simone: Expecting what?

Mia: I don't know. I don't know, exactly. An apology, at least.

Simone: Maybe a diamond and a second proposal?

Mia: Well, maybe. Somewhere in the back of my mind, maybe. But the last thing I expected to walk in and see was a diamond ring on another woman's finger.

Simone: Yeah. Yeah, that kind of sucks, huh?

Mia: Yeah, it sucks.

Simone: Don't waste your tears on a man like that. He cheated on you, he abandoned you, and then he dumped you.

Mia: Yeah.

Simone: Ok, so what happened when he introduced you to the future Mrs. Martin, God help her?

Mia: Oh, great. Then we just sort of thrashed things out.

Simone: Ok, so, how'd that go?

Mia: Not well.

Simone: Oh, please tell me you didn't wish he and his bride happiness?

Mia: Oh, no, no, not at all. But, anyway, Iíve decided to make up for it by giving the happy couple a gift that they'll never forget.

Simone: Mia, even talking like that in times like these -- it's not funny.

Mia: What do you mean?

Simone: Well, if there's something in there that's ticking and it's not a clock --

Mia: Oh, Simone, I'm not crazy. There's nothing explosive in here.

Simone: Ok, so, for the record and my unbearable curiosity, what's in the box?

Mia: This is the official Jake and Mia museum of ancient relationships. There's ticket stubs from past concerts that we went to, lots and lots of photos -- some of them nude -- and, of course, a couple of love letters to complete it.

Simone: Oh. Oh. I thought you said there was nothing explosive.

Mia: What is wrong with a few innocent mementos from the past, hmm?

Simone: I don't think this is a good idea.

Mia: Oh, Simone, it's practically a public service.

Simone: Don't do this, Mia. It's not going to make you feel any better. And why give Jake the satisfaction of knowing that he got to you?

Mia: How could he know? A man can only get to you if you love him, and as far as Jakeís concerned, I never loved him at all.

Simone: He said that?

Mia: And he convinced me of it, too. You know, it's not very hard to make me feel wrong about things right now. God. You know, there were times with Edmund when Jake wasn't even on my mind, and I thought, "maybe." But then I realized that Edmund was just a distraction --

Simone: Yeah.

Mia: From all of the pain -- the pain that I felt when I saw Jake again. Oh, God. Jake's wrong. God knows I tried, but -- I tried not to love him. But I did love him.

Simone: Yes, you did.

Mia: I did.

Simone: Mia, it's ok. It's ok.

Aidan: So, you and Edmund --

Maria: Yeah, yeah. Last night.

Aidan: Well, congratulations.

Edmund: Oh, oh, thank you. Sweetie, let's go find us a seat, ok?

Maddie: Ok.

Maria: I'm sorry. I would've called you to tell you --

Aidan: No. Why? There's no need. There's no need.

Maria: Well, there is a need, and I would've called you. It's just that the whole thing was a total surprise to me. Edmund arranged this whole renewal of our vows, and before I knew it --

Aidan: You were married. Yeah, well, good for you.

Maria: Yeah. Yeah. Good for me.

Aidan: You don't even owe me anything, not even an explanation.

Maria: Except my life and the life of my daughter.

Aidan: Well, I knew that if you went back to Edmund, it wouldn't take you long to be as close as what you were before. I just didn't think it would happen this quickly.

Maria: No, of course you didn't. No, Aidan, Iím really -- Iím sorry about that. I just -- I want you to know that just because I did go back to Edmund doesn't mean that I've forgotten about you or -- because I haven't and I couldn't. And I --

Kendall: And what makes you think Aidan hasn't gone back to someone, too?

Simone: Here.

Mia: I'm not sad, ok? I am furious. Maybe you're right. Maybe I shouldn't send Carolyn Jakeís memorabilia, but you know what? I ought to send her a bottle of whiskey because she's going to need it the night she finds that jerk with another girl.

Simone: You really think Jakeís going to make the same mistake with Carolyn that he did with you?

Mia: Why not? A man can do whatever he wants to a woman. If she doesn't put up with it, there's always somebody stupid enough to take her place.

Simone: My gosh, you really hate them.

Mia: Who?

Simone: Men.

[Mia sighs]

Mia: What is there to like?

Simone: Well, you better come up with something quick because we're in the middle of a major campaign to find the sexiest man in America.

Mia: Yeah, well, maybe we shouldn't be.

Simone: Mia!

Mia: What? What, name one problem that was ever solved in a relationship because a man was sexy.

Simone: Celibacy.

Mia: Oh, you're hopeless. Hopeless.

Simone: You are taking this way too seriously. Ok, who cares if sexiness solves anything? It's fun.

Mia: Oh, is it?

Simone: Yes.

Mia: Really?

Simone: Uh-huh.

Mia: Uh-huh, ok. So what is so sexy about this guy?

Simone: Definitely his smile.

Mia: Oh, yeah. And how many women has he fooled with this smile?

Simone: Hey, he happens to be one of our front-runners, and if you would've heard what he said on his tape --

Mia: Oh, what, what, that he loves his mother? How about the mother of his children?

Simone: He's not married. Thank God.

Mia: How about this guy, huh?

Simone: Dreamy eyes.

Mia: Yeah, but you wake up from the dream into a nightmare.

Simone: Then don't wake up.

Mia: And this one? Oh, don't tell me, a killer bod, right? Oh, yeah. And this one --

Simone: Ok, Mia --

Mia: Oh, boy, he's got -- sweet talker. Sweet-talk you right to death. You know what you can do --

Simone: Ok, would you just stop it? My God!

Mia: With all these sexy lips and chins and jaw lines and --

[elevator doors open]

Simone: What is wrong with you? Would you -- ugh!

Mia: Sexy!

Simone: Bonnie. Hi. Welcome to Fusion.

Bonnie: Hi. I take it the contest is going well?

Carlos: Greenlee, I know you can hear me.

[music plays]

Carlos: What are you up to? Hmm. Ok, what's going on?

Greenlee: Whatever we want, Carlos. Hmm. I thought we could use a little atmosphere.

Carlos: It's beautiful. You, too.

Greenlee: Well, it was easy with a whole department store to raid. I took only the best from linen, bridal, and the electronics department, and, of course, Laceyís wonderful collection of designer dresses.

Carlos: You know, someone's going to notice when the doors open.

Greenlee: Well, I'll put everything back the way I found it -- except maybe the dress. It's so me, I think I'll buy it.

Carlos: Wow. When you do something, you really -- you really go all out, huh?

Greenlee: Yeah. Mostly. But I really wanted everything to be special and perfect for you.

Carlos: Well, fixing the display was good enough.

Greenlee: Yeah, it's a start. I'll clean up the picture of Erica after we eat, ok? Something wrong?

Carlos: You really did all this for me?

Greenlee: That's right. Well, the dress was for me. Of course, if you want to reward me with something special for being so good, Iím sure I can think of something.

Michael: Wow, that is really good. And what are all these buildings here?

Colby: That's daddy's house, and that's Mia's and mommy's apartment.

Michael: Oh. Well, how come you didn't just draw one house for everybody?

Colby: Because that's how we used to live --

Michael: Oh.

Colby: When I was little.

Michael: Oh. So, what happened?

Colby: Mommy and daddy had fights.

Michael: What did they -- what did they fight about?

Colby: Mommy took daddy's money, and daddy lied a lot.

Michael: Oh.

Colby: Do you think I should put a big sun in this corner?

Michael: Yeah, you know, I think that would look -- look pretty good. So --

Adam: Well, how's my -- get your hands off my daughter.

Maria: So -- I didn't know. How long have you guys been together?

Aidan: We're not.

Kendall: We're not telling too many people about it. I mean, it kind of caught us by surprise. But then again, Aidan and I do have so much in common.

Aidan: Kendall --

Kendall: I mean, we both love the outdoors, we both love dining out. We've both been hurt by people we loved, people who we thought loved us.

Aidan: Right, that's enough, Kendall. Please?

Kendall: I mean, it's not like Iím saying anything that isn't true.

Aidan: Can I have a minute alone with Maria?

Kendall: Oh, well, ok. I guess I can give you up for a minute. One minute.

Aidan: Thank you. Well, you looked happy when you came in here this morning.

Maria: Yeah. Yeah, I am.

Aidan: Well, good. Then I got what I wanted.

Maria: That's what I want for you, too, Aidan. I do.

Maddie: Mommy -- oh, hi, Aidan. Mommy's breakfast is ready, so can you help me pour the syrup on my pancakes?

Maria: Yes, I can, sweet pea. Can you give me one sec?

Maddie: Ok.

Maria: Ok, honey.

Aidan: Duty calls, huh?

Maria: Yeah, yeah.

Aidan: Well, good luck, Maria.

Maria: And to you, too, Aidan.

Kendall: You ok?

Aidan: Yep. As good as I can be on two cups of coffee. Now if you'll excuse me.

Kendall: Wait, Aidan -- wait a minute. Where are you going?

Aidan: Why?

Kendall: Because wherever you're going, I'm going with you.

Aidan: Yeah, like hell you are. Let go of me, will you?

Kendall: No, Aidan, you need me.

Aidan: I need you? I need you to pretend to be my girlfriend? No thanks.

Kendall: What am I supposed to do, just let you stand here and let Maria see the scars on your heart?

Aidan: You know what it's called? It's called being honest, Kendall. Maybe you should try it sometime.

[phone rings]

Kendall: I'm being honest with you right now.

Aidan: Do you want to get your phone and leave me alone, please?

Kendall: No, no, no. What I have to say to you is much more important.

Aidan: Yeah, well, not to me, it isn't.

[ring]

Kendall: Hey, hey, Aidan --

Aidan: Don't you even think about following me.

[ringing stops]

Edmund: Sweetheart -- ahem -- do me a favor. You want to play a song on the jukebox for daddy?

Maddie: Yeah.

Edmund: Thank you.

Maddie: Thanks Daddy.

Edmund: Everything ok?

Maria: Yeah. Yeah, I just -- you know, I wish Iíd had a chance to tell Aidan about the wedding before he found out about it like this.

Edmund: Don't blame yourself. I kind of sprang the whole thing on you.

Maria: And believe me, I would not have changed one second of last night.

[music plays]

Maria: You know, I just -- I should've tried to call him or something before I left the house --

Edmund: It wasn't going to be easy on him either way, honey.

Maria: I know, I know. But I just didn't want him to be so caught off-guard like that. I just felt so bad for him. I -- I was so caught up in us, I didn't even think about anything else.

Edmund: Well, now that you've had a chance to think -- part of you still miss it?

Adam: Here, sweetheart, let me -- let me give my girl a hug.

Michael: What is the problem, Adam? She was perfectly safe with me.

Colby: Yeah, he was helping me with my drawing.

Michael: Exactly. A couple of pointers. I used to be a pretty good artist when I was Colbyís age.

Adam: Well, put your crayons down, Michelangelo, and get that Hong Kong report together we talked about, if you wouldn't mind?

Michael: Of course. Well, it was nice meeting you, Colby. Maybe next time we can go to the park and fly that kite like we talked about, huh?

Liza: Colby, would you go sit in daddy's chair, and why don't you work on your picture for a little bit? I'm just going to talk to daddy for a couple of minutes. You want to tell me why you have a snake like Michael Cambias here, acting like he's your business partner?

Adam: He isn't.

Liza: Well, thank God.

Adam: He's my employee.

Bonnie: Apparently, the other Fusioneers are caught in traffic, I guess?

Mia: Yes. Well, but we are ready for you, of course.

Simone: Yes, so we might as well go ahead and go on without them.

[Mia laughs]

Bonnie: All right. Well, then, let's start with the introductions.

Simone: Ok.

Bonnie: I'm Bonnie Fuller, editor --

Simone: Oh, God, you don't -- please, you do not need to introduce yourself to us. We are just so grateful to you that you'd want to come here and actually meet us.

Mia: Yes.

Simone: Thank you.

Bonnie: Well listen, stories like Fusion are what Iím supposed to be spending my time on.

Simone: Oh, thank God.

Bonnie: "Small-town girls hit big"?

Mia: Oh --

Simone: Here we are.

Bonnie: Yes, "US" readers are going to love it. And, you know, they're really going to like it if we could throw in some of those photos of the sexiest man contest.

Mia: Oh!

Simone: Great idea. Oh, you know they will. Oh, you know, we will answer any question that you have.

Mia: Right.

Simone: Yeah.

Bonnie: Ok, good. Well, the first one will not be hard.

Simone: Oh, good.

Mia: Good!

[laughter]

Bonnie: So, which of you is Greenlee Dupres and which is Kendall Hart?

Mia: Um, actually --

Simone: I'm Greenlee. Yeah.

Bonnie: And that means you're --

Simone: Kendall, yes. My junior partner.

Bonnie: Good. Ok, so just how did you come up with the idea for the contest, the sexiest man contest, anyway?

Simone: That was a brilliant inspiration by our second-most favorite employee, Simone Torres. That's with a T as in Tom -- T, O, R, R, E, S. Did I say second-most favorite? She's our number one important employee.

Bonnie: Simone?

Simone: Yes, Simone.

[knock on door]

Kendall: Aidan? Aidan, it's me.

Aidan: Well, it shouldn't be. I told you at B.J.'s not to follow me. Now, I need to be left alone, Kendall.

Kendall: I don't think you know what you need right now.

Aidan: Oh, and you do?

Kendall: Yes, I do, and Iím not leaving, so let me in.

Aidan: I'm sorry. No can do, Iím afraid.

[knock]

Kendall: Aidan, come on! Aidan, will you please just let me in? Aidan? Come on, already.

Aidan: What do you want?

Kendall: I just wanted to make sure you were ok.

Aidan: How many times have I told you? I'm fine. Now, leave.

Kendall: No, excuse me, hello, I was there. I saw how you looked when Maria and Edmund and Maddie walked in. And if you weren't such a proud, stubborn little -- what are you doing?

Aidan: I'm cleaning house. Out with the old, including me.

Kendall: What, you're moving?

Aidan: No, I'm leaving, because there's no reasons for me to stick around here.

Kendall: Yes, there are. You've got plenty of reasons.

Aidan: Name one.

Kendall: Me.

Liza: That's what you're doing? You're playing father figure to Michael Cambias?

Adam: His own father won't do it.

Liza: You know, I really hope you know what you're dealing with here.

Adam: Liza, I make a point of knowing my employees better than they know themselves.

Liza: So you know what he's capable of, you know what he's done?

Adam: You're talking about the attempted rape?

Liza: It's a felony, Adam. And for Michael, it seems like it's something of a hobby.

Adam: According to whom? Erica Kane? Kendall? With those two testifying against him in court, Cambias seems to think that he has a real good shot, and I can't say I blame him.

Liza: You are going to side against Erica with this creep?

Adam: I know what I'm doing, Liza. I know what I'm doing. Just drop it, ok.

Liza: You know, I would if I understood it. But Michael Cambias? This is not the kind of guy you get into business with. This is the kind of guy you devour. Oh, oh, unless -- ok, of course. Is that what you're doing? Is that it?

Adam: I told you why I hired him, Liza. Let's drop it, all right?

Liza: You're not backing him up. You're setting him up, right?

Adam: I'm pleased that you think I could do something so Machiavellian.

Liza: Oh, please. You know, you would make Machiavelli look like Forrest Gump when it came to your daughter. I saw you when you came in here and you saw him with your daughter, and your feelings -- I saw them. So, you want to think about that. How much are you willing to risk for this little scheme of yours?

Carlos: What do you have behind your back?

Greenlee: My reward for being a good girl.

Carlos: Don't I decide what that is?

Greenlee: Just play along, Carlos.

Carlos: Ok, fine. Play. What do I do next?

Greenlee: Take off your shirt.

Carlos: My shirt?

Greenlee: Yeah. You know, that piece of fabric stretched over your -- the shirt, please. Now.

Greenlee: Ahem. That's good. Now I just hope I've got your size right.

Carlos: Greenlee, where is this going?

Greenlee: Who knows? I thought with my dress, we'd be a matched set.

Carlos: There's no white shirt.

Greenlee: I know. That's right. That's a part of my reward.

Carlos: Ok. How do you like it?

Greenlee: I like it. I like it a lot.

Carlos: Yeah?

Greenlee: Actually, a little change will make it perfect.

Bonnie: Well, I'm very happy with what I've gotten from you two today.

Simone: Oh, great.

Mia: Great.

Bonnie: And that Simone, she really sounds memorable.

Mia: Oh, yes, she is.

Simone: Sometimes I don't even know what she's going to do next.

Bonnie: Just -- you know, she really does, though, have this terrific gift for P.R. I mean, that pirate TV ad -- it's got the buzz going on Fusion.

Simone: Oh, thank you.

Bonnie: And now, with your sexiest man contest, it's really building.

Mia: Yes, yeah.

Simone: Yeah, yeah. You know what? We don't know what we would do without Simone.

Mia: But sometimes we'd like to find out.

Bonnie: Does it take a lot of guidance to channel her ideas in the right direction?

Simone: Oh, no.

Mia: Oh, yes. Without Greenlee and I, Simone would definitely get into more legal trouble.

Bonnie: I see.

Brad: I'm all set, Bonnie. We can start the shoot whenever you're ready.

Bonnie: Oh. Ok, ladies -- are you ready for your photo shoot?

Simone: Oh!

Mia: Actually, we're not really ourselves today.

Bonnie: What do you mean? I think you look terrific.

Simone: Oh, thank you. Yeah, I think I look great.

Bonnie: Come on.

Simone: Yeah, come on, Kendall, let's not keep Brad waiting.

Mia: Right.

Simone: Ok? So, how about this?

Brad: Great.

Simone: Yeah?

Brad: Oh, perfect. Move your head a little bit to the left.

Simone: Oh, ok, that's -- yeah.

Brad: Oh, great. Great.

Reggie: Hi, Mia. Hey, Simone. How you doing? Is Kendall here?

Maria: I'll never forget my life as Maureen, but it's over now and Iíve got my memory back, and that answered so many questions for me that -- not just about my past but also about my future, where my life is headed. It's good. Oh, hey, can you wait one sec for me? I'll be right back.

Edmund: Mm-hmm.

Maria: Joe? Hi.

Joe: Maureen.

Maria: How are you?

Joe: Thanks. How are you doing?

Maria: I am great. I'm great, and I know this is going to sound nuts, but I am myself again, so Iím going to stop my classes at P.V.U.

Joe: Whoa, hold on, hold on. You mean you're Maria again?

Maria: I am.

Joe: When did this happen?

Maria: It was when Maddie was in a lot of danger, and all these feelings started coming up from me, and I started remembering everything from before the accident. And I remembered my family, Edmund, everything. Everything.

Joe: That's just wonderful.

Maria: Oh, thank you.

Joe: My goodness. Well, are you sure you're ok?

Maria: Oh, yeah. No, I'm perfect. Positive. As a matter of fact, I think that Iím ready to take my recertification exam. So, are you ready for Dr. Grey?

Kendall: Stay for me. I need you after everything I've been through with my mother. I mean, she practically disowned me all over again.

Aidan: Well, you've got -- you've got Boyd. You got Greenlee, Simone, Mia --

Kendall: Yeah, they're good friends, but they haven't seen me through all the things like you have, starting with losing Ryan.

Aidan: You would have survived without me, and you still will.

Kendall: Yeah, but I don't want to take that chance. That's why Iím here, blowing off a major interview with "US" weekly magazine for Fusion.

Aidan: If you still hurry, you might still make it.

Kendall: Ok, well, if you unpack, then I'll go.

Aidan: No. I'm not going to do it.

Kendall: Ok, Aidan, you know what? Listen. If not for me, then stay for Anna. I mean, you're the only family that she's got after losing her baby. Do you really think it's right to just leave her like this?

Aidan: The way I am right now, Iíll be doing Anna a favor.

Kendall: You know what? You are trashing your life, Aidan, for a woman who's moved on.

Aidan: Well, she wasn't supposed to move on. She promised me. She swore to me that if she got her memory back that she would never leave me.

Kendall: No, Maureen made that promise, not Maria.

Aidan: Yeah. And the part of her that is Maureen is still there -- the memories, her feelings. I thought if I let her go, she went back to Edmund, well, then, she'd realize that her life was with me now.

Kendall: Aidan, she married him. He's her life now.

Aidan: Yeah, I know. She's gone. She's not coming back. That's why Iím leaving, Kendall -- because every time I go out in Pine Valley, I'm going to be reminded of the love I lost every day, and I'm not going to do that.

Kendall: You're a coward.

Aidan: Get out. Go on, get out.

Kendall: No. No. You know what? You -- you're leaving because you're afraid of getting hurt. Now, if that's not acting cowardly, I don't know what is.

Aidan: Leave.

Kendall: No.

Aidan: Ok. Then Iíll leave. You stay as long as you like. The door will lock behind you.

Kendall: All right, all right. Listen -- obviously, I can't make you stay. I would if I could, but I canít. So Iíll go. You know, you can shut the door on me, but you can't shut the door on the truth.

Aidan: I'll just have to settle for you.

Adam: Liza, I'm no longer obliged to share the details of my business with you.

Liza: Even though they affect the safety of our daughter?

Adam: They won't. But along those lines, I am up to my knees in business right now, and I would like for you to keep Colby away from the office for the time being.

Liza: Well, gee. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane.

Adam: What does that mean?

Liza: You, untrusting and emotionally unavailable. It's a little like being married all over again. Come on, sweetie, let's go.

Colby: Daddy, can you give this to my new friend?

Adam: Who would that be?

Colby: The man who was just here. He helped me with it.

Adam: Yes. Yes, Iíll take care of it. Don't you worry.

Colby: Thanks Daddy. Bye-bye.

Adam: Bye-bye. I love you, sweetheart.

Adam: Kensington, I want you to put your best man on my daughter, ASAP. And if Michael Cambias comes anywhere near her, alert me immediately.

Reggie: What's up with the evil look? What'd I do? All I said was that -

Simone: Yeah, we know what you said, and you might have cost us an article in "US" weekly magazine about our sexy male contest.

Reggie: Oh, sexy -- why didn't you just ask for the sexiest male?

Simone: Oh, oh, oh --

Reggie: You know, if you want to take some pictures, you know, right there.

Simone: Reginald, Reggie, Mr. Porter --

Reggie: What?

Mia: Leave.

Reggie: Tell Kendall I came by --

Simone: Yeah, I will. Goodbye.

Reggie: Thank you.

Mia: Um -- about what just happened --

Simone: Yeah --

Mia: Us --

Bonnie: May I guess -- Simone?

Simone: Yeah.

Bonnie: And --

Mia: Mia, hi. Greenlee and Kendall were going to be here --

Simone: Yeah, but something came up. And I swear to you, if it's anything less than an earthquake, I will personally strangle them --

Mia: And we didn't want to blow our chance to have an article about us --

Mia and Simone: In "US."

Mia: So --

Simone: Yeah --

Mia: How would you put it?

Simone: I don't know.

Mia: We --

Bonnie: Try lied?

Mia and Simone: Yeah.

Simone: So, I guess the interview's over.

Bonnie: That's it. We'll try and get this out next week into the issue so that it's still on the stands while the contest is on.

Mia: You're running the article?

Simone: Oh, Bonnie.

Bonnie: Absolutely. After that crazy stunt -- it's going to make fantastic copy.

Simone: Oh, thank God.

Bonnie: Of course, if I'd found out about it after the profile was done -

Simone: Right.

Mia: Make a note to thank Reggie.

Simone: Yes, understood.

Bonnie: Well, nice meeting you.

Simone: You, too.

Mia: You, too.

Brad: Likewise.

Mia: Yeah, thank you.

Simone: Oh, you guys are wonderful.

Mia: Great.

Simone: Ok, so, we'll be in touch, yeah?

Bonnie: We'll see you.

Mia: Bye.

Bonnie: Bye-bye.

Simone: Bye. Have a great day.

Mia: All right! Yes!

Simone: Oh, my God, we did it. Oh, Kendall, you were fabulous.

Mia: Greenlee, loved you.

Simone: Oh, thank you. Oh, my God. We should go have lunch, like a victory celebration.

Mia: Yeah. It's a little early for lunch, though.

Simone: Ok, then we'll have a long lunch.

Mia: Where?

Simone: Um, I know -- the Backstreet Brewery.

Mia: Oh, God, that place is always crowded with guys from the firehouse.

Simone: Oh, I think I can put up with it, I mean, if I really try.

Mia: Simone, when are you ever, ever going to learn?

Simone: Oh, come on, Mia. They're not all bad.

Mia: Oh, really? Name one man, just one, who has never disappointed a woman.

Simone: Oh, one name -- the pressure of a name. Oh, let me see. Santa Claus.

Mia: Oh, my God. Ok. You got me there, although there was that year I asked for the pogo stick --

Simone: All right, you know what? You're hopeless. You're really hopeless.

Edmund: Wow. What did Dr. Joe do to turn that smile on?

Maria: Well, he is going to look into my recertification exam for me.

Edmund: Wow.

Maria: Yeah.

Edmund: So, you feel like you're really ready?

Maria: Oh, yeah. Yeah, definitely. I just -- I feel like I did before I took my organic chemistry exam, and Aidan had given me this good luck pencil and --

Edmund: Wouldn't you feel better if you saw him?

Maria: No. No, because there's nothing that I can say to make him feel better. And I think that seeing my face right now is the last thing that Aidan needs.

Carlos: We can't do this here.

Greenlee: What? What? What could be better? I'm here, you're here, bedroom furnishings are on the second floor.

Carlos: The store's about to open.

Greenlee: No, it's not. No, it's not. I saw a sign, and the employees are on a picnic today. So we can have our own picnic, Carlos. No rain, no ants. We even have time for seconds.

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

Woman: Carlos, is that you?

Erica: There's something that you need to know, and it can't wait.

Jamie: Tad the cad is going to preach me abstinence?

David: I want Tad to be penniless and disgraced.
