>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Carlos: You and I, what we could've had -- it's lost.

Bianca: You're not going to leave, are you?

Michael: Going to give me what I need?

Anna: We lost a child! That can either drive us apart or it can bring us closer together.

Tad: I am sorry. I never meant to imply that you ever thought of me as anything other than a dear friend who just happens to know you biblically.

Simone: Oh, this is so much harder than I expected.

Greenlee: Simone, I swear, your life is one endless bitch-fest.

Simone: What? Greenlee, come on. I mean, narrowing this playing field down to 25 finalists for the sexiest man contest?

Mia: Yeah, it's like when you go to a restaurant and the menu's as thick as a phone book and you can't decide between the Cajun shrimp and the avocado spring roll, but then you get a sudden urge for a veggie burger and the works, and don't even get me started on dessert.

Greenlee: Is this work or virtual dining?

Mia: I'm sorry. I didn't have breakfast, ok? Oh, hey, hey, this guy. We didn't even see him. He looks like he could make the cut. Yeah?

Simone: For the contest or for our bet?

Greenlee: Simone, finding the perfect guy for our personal use is totally separate from the sexiest man contest. Cross the line, you and Mia lose the bet.

Simone: Yeah, we will land our perfect man.

Mia: Yeah.

Simone: And we'll cash in on those shares of Fusion stock.

Mia: Whoo!

Greenlee: Not if Kendall and I win first. Then we bank three months' take-home pay, yours and Miaís.

Mia: Say what?

Simone: Where did you come up with that?

Greenlee: I figured Fusion's stock-to-salary ratio. Keeps the stakes high but even.

Mia: I'm living paycheck to paycheck as it is.

Greenlee: If it's too much for you, maybe we can call off the bet.

Simone: Are you calling our bluff, Greenlee?

Greenlee: Maybe.

Simone: Look at her smugness. She thinks she's already won. Right, Greenlee? Because whatever it was that happened last night, you think that you can just snap your little fingers and Carlos will be yours whether you want him or not.

Greenlee: I don't want him. Not in this lifetime or any other.

Lena: Boyd. Good morning.

Boyd: Hey.

Lena: Is Bianca up yet?

Boyd: Actually, I haven't seen her yet this morning, but you're welcome to wait for her down here. You, too, Officer, uh --

Officer: Morrison, sir.

Lena: I'm sorry. Officer Morrison has been assigned to watch my back.

Boyd: Oh, very nice. Where do I sign up for a job like that?

Lena: You heard Michael Cambias made bail?

Boyd: Yeah, it's all over the news.

Lena: Any sign of him around here?

Boyd: Are you kidding me? Believe me, this is the last place Cambias is going to want to show his face.

Michael: You mind if I share this bench?

Bianca: No. No.

Bianca: No, no, don't come near me. Just get out of here. Just stay away from me!

Man: Ok, ok. Jeez. Don't have an attack. You can have the whole bench to yourself.

Edmund: Maria, how did I ever sleep without you?

Maria: On your back, probably snoring.

Edmund: The bed was way too empty way too long.

Maria: I can't even tell where I end and you begin.

Edmund: Should be easy enough to figure out.

Maria: Is it?

Edmund: That is definitely you.

Maria: Hmm. Well, this is definitely you.

Edmund: What else you got down there?

Maria: Want the nickel tour?

Edmund: Yeah, sure.

Maria: Follow me.

Edmund: All right, where do we begin?

Maria: Well, you can begin by getting your elbow out of my eye.

Edmund: That's not my elbow.

Maria: That's not my eye.

[Maria laughs]

[Mia gasps]

Mia: Oh, God.

Simone: Hey, Greenlee. That copy's upside down.

Greenlee: Go away.

Simone: So Iím so glad to know that you are totally and completely over Carlos. Are you sure there's nothing left?

Greenlee: Not even a trace. Carlos and I have reached the point of no return and I'm not looking back.

Simone: Then Iíd better get my eyes checked because when Carlos came in here, I could have sworn I saw a hint of a spark, a speck, something.

Mia: Simone, why do you even care?

Greenlee: Because Simone still turns to mush whenever Carlos does a flyby, so she assumes that he turns all women to silly putty.

Simone: Look, I am just trying to guard my interests.

Greenlee: Which include getting Carlos into your bed?

Simone: Carlos is your perfect man, not mine.

Greenlee: Meaning?

Simone: Meaning that you just might get desperate enough to go after Carlos so that you won't lose the bet.

Greenlee: Please. Desperate is the last thing I am when it comes to men.

Simone: Really? So you're saying that you're just going to sit back like the queen bee and let the drones get in their formation, then buzz your hive?

Greenlee: No, but you assuming that I'd fall back on Carlos to score an easy win is insulting.

Simone: Ok, then I take it back.

Greenlee: Thank you.

Simone: If you swear on a stack of sexy men videos that Carlos is really history and that you're really ready to move on without any secret hope that Carlos will come crawling back to you with a ring as big as an S.U.V.

Greenlee: I don't stand still for any man, and as far as I'm concerned, any woman who lets her whole life shut down because it didn't work out with one guy is beyond pathetic.

Simone: Hi, Liza.

Liza: Hello. Hope you were taking notes.

Mia: Hope you were taking notes.

Liza: Me?

Mia: Yeah, you, big sis. What's your excuse for putting your life on hold?

David: You must be really hungry. I know you didn't eat dinner last night, so --

Anna: Oh, no, I'm -- you want me to fix you something?

David: No. No, I'm not really hungry right now.

Anna: I'd like some coffee. I'll go put the water on.

David: Ok.

Anna: Wouldn't you know it? We're out of beans.

David: Well, that's all right. I'll run out and get some.

Anna: No, I'll go. It's ok.

David: No, Anna, please. Let me go, ok?

Edmund: Proposition.

Maria: Ok. I like the way that sounds already.

Edmund: Being that Sammy's in summer camp, and Maddie's in a slumber party, I suppose we could stretch this out one more day just like this?

Maria: I don't know why not. We could just have Stella dust around us. Oh, my God. Edmund --

Edmund: What, baby?

Maria: Do you know this is the first time since I had my memory back that we've been alone that the kids haven't been around?

Edmund: Great, let's take full advantage of the opportunity.

Maria: Oh! Down, boy. Down, down, down.

Edmund: That's not what you said 10 minutes ago.

Maria: No, I just want to take this time to celebrate. I want to celebrate and be grateful for the zillion and one things that we have to be grateful for.

Edmund: We've been celebrating all night.

Maria: I just think that, you know, maybe we need a total change of scenery. Like the shower.

Edmund: You know, I'm sorry, Iím really tempted, but I've got that story I've got to file for "Tempo" and I've got a deadline, and if I miss that deadline, just -- gotcha.

Maria: Oh, man.

Edmund: You are such an easy mark.

Maria: I guess.

Edmund: Don't you know that there is nothing -- nothing -- that can compete with you? Nothing. No story. Down with the story. I get to take a shower with my wife you know how good it feels to say that?

Maria: What are we waiting for?

[Knock on door]

Anna: What are you doing here?

Tad: I could ask you the same question.

Man: Hey, Cindy, wait up.

Cindy: Eat my dust, loser.

Man: Who you calling loser?

Cindy: Let me go.

Man: Make me.

Bianca's voice: Let me go!

Michael: Whoa, whoa. It's ok.

Man: Last one home gets dinner.

Cindy: Uh-huh.

Bianca: Get your hands off of me!

David: Bianca, I --

Bianca: David. Oh, my God, I'm so sorry.

David: Are you all right?

Bianca: Yeah, I -- I thought you were somebody else.

David: Who?

Bianca: This guy -- um, this guy was hassling me before.

David: Well, who was it? I'll call the police.

Bianca: No. No, no, no. It's ok, it's ok. He's gone. Um, there's nothing that the police can do.

David: You look like you've been up all night.

Bianca: Oh. Um, yeah. I've had something on my mind, I guess.

David: Well, did you and Erica have a falling-out or something?

Bianca: No. No, no, no, no, it has nothing to do with Mom or anybody. It's -- it's just me.

David: Hmm. You remember when Erica and I were seeing each other? You and I became pretty good friends at that time.

Bianca: Yeah, I remember.

David: I'm still here, Bianca. If something's bothering you and you feel like you need to confide in someone --

Bianca: No. Um -- what does it matter, anyway? I mean, whatever happens, the sun still comes out in the morning, right? Life goes on, with or without you.

David: Yeah, I've been asking myself that same question lately -- how can my whole world have fallen apart and the world just continues on like it's just any other day?

Bianca: Oh, God, David. I'm sorry about Leora.

David: Yeah.

Bianca: How do you do it? When the unthinkable happens, how do you get out of bed in the morning?

David: You know, there are still those moments, those few precious seconds at the beginning of each day when you're lying there in bed and you're not fully conscious. You just take a deep breath. You hope that the whole thing is just one -- one terrible nightmare. That Leora is still lying in her cradle, dreaming those dreams that babies dream, and then I rub my eyes, and I look around, and I realize it's not a dream, that Iím all alone, and this is hell.

Bianca: And it hits you that it really happened, and you can't erase it and you can't undo it, no matter how tightly you shut your eyes.

David: Bianca, whatever this is, whatever's brought you to this place, you can tell me. It might feel better just to say it.

Bianca: No, David, it's -- it's fine. I'm -- I need to work this out on my own.

David: You don't have to.

Bianca: Yeah. Yeah, I do.

Lena: Thank you. This is our itinerary, pending Biancaís approval, of course.

Boyd: Hmm. Prague, Vienna, Stuttgart. Pretty ambitious.

Lena: That's just for starters. Then we're heading to Paris and then a wee little villa in the south of France.

Boyd: Well, it sounds perfect.

Lena: Well, it's going to be amazing. Bianca makes me feel so -- oh, I don't know. Really, I don't even know what my life was like before she was in it. Oh, what am I doing pouring my heart out to you? Bianca? Hey, lazy bones!

Myrtle: Lena? Oh, Lena, darling, Bianca is not upstairs.

Lena: Oh, Myrtle, hello. Do you know where she is?

Myrtle: Well, it's a mystery. I went up this morning to give her fresh towels, and the bed was made, and she was gone, and it was pretty early.

Lena: Hmm. Well, here I am, yapping on about Bianca to Boyd, and she's not even here. Where could she be? It's so early.

Boyd: Well, maybe while you were spending all this time yapping to me -- thank you very much -- she's off planning her own little trip to paradise.

Bianca: I should get back to Myrtle's before somebody misses me.

David: All right. But, I mean, you know my numbers. If you need anything, just contact me, all right?

Bianca: Oh, thank you, David. No, I'm fine. Bye.

Maria: Oh, my God, you're the biggest blanket hog!

Edmund: Well, you hog the blankets at home!

[Maria squeals]

Edmund: Here, I'll give you some space.

Maria: No, no!

Edmund: There. Now you got enough blanket?

Maria: No!

Edmund: Say "Uncle!"

Maria: All righty, all righty.

Edmund: Hayward, we don't want any trouble.

David: Neither do I. Enjoy your day.

Edmund: Well, was that Hayward acting almost human?

Maria: Yeah, I guess everybody's off to a fresh start today.

Edmund: Yeah.

Maria: Well, speaking of a fresh start, I say we take a little trip on the way-back machine to where it all began for us -- in a little paper bag.

Edmund: What is in this little paper bag?

Maria: Check it out.

Liza: The memo says that supplies are missing. I mean, what does that mean?

Greenlee: Simone?

Mia: She's not here.

Greenlee: Where the hell -- we've got tapes to screen, we've got finalists to pick.

Mia: Yeah, I know. Simone's on top of it.

Greenlee: Doing what?

Mia: Oh, she's down at Laceyís, checking on the display that we're setting up for the finalists of the sexy man contest.

Greenlee: Well, she could've said something. Damn it, why is it still so hot in here? Carlos was supposed to fix the air conditioning.

Mia: Oh, I think it's quite pleasant.

Greenlee: You know, that would just be so like him. Just because we didn't click romantically, he figures he doesn't have to impress me with his studly repairman prowess.

Mia: Oh, I don't think that Carlos --

Greenlee: Wonder how he'd like it if I had a little chat with the building manager.

Mia: Greenlee, you wouldn't try to get Carlos sacked just because he dumped you?

Greenlee: Mia, he didn't dump me. It was totally mutual.

Mia: Well, that's not what you said.

Greenlee: If he's too immature to handle the job that he's mean to do, then maybe it's best that he move on.

Liza: Ahem. So, where were we?

Mia: We were in our separate corners.

Liza: We were fighting?

Mia: Yeah, we were. But that depends how deeply embedded in denial you are.

Liza: Oh, right, right, we were talking about my so-called shutdown life.

Mia: Shutdown, on hold, nonexistent.

Liza: Nice. Is that how you really see me?

Mia: I don't know, Liza, let's examine your life since your divorce from Adam. You come home from work, you play with Colby, and you sit in front of the TV with a crossword puzzle and a bag of popcorn.

Liza: Well, when two people have -- when their marriage falls apart --

Mia: You and Adam were over way before you called it quits. You were, and I was expecting a huge comeback from you. I was expecting you to take life by the scruff and shake it up. And instead, it's like you're waiting for life to come along to you, and you've been such a low profile, it's just passing you by.

Liza: Mia, Iím not missing anything. I'm not waiting for anything.

Mia: Oh, your life is just so rich and full. You're just afraid to -- well, it's a lot easier than facing your fears.

Liza: Facing what fears?

Mia: Exposure. Commitment. Love.

Liza: Mia, if you even knew a little bit of my history --

Mia: Oh -- I've been watching you for the past year, and all Iíve seen is a woman who puts up a wall between herself and any kind of romance, even when it's staring you right in the face.

Liza: No, no, no. You know what, I am not going to have this conversation for the umpteenth time about Tad. He closes himself off worse than I do -- and excuse me, but who is on the couch with me? Who knows the answer to 47 across?

Mia: That would be me.

Liza: Yeah.

Mia: But not anymore, ok?

[Liza scoffs]

Mia: No. I'm going to be a risk-taker.

Liza: Mm-hmm.

Mia: Yeah. I know what I want, and I'm going to go after it.

Liza: Does "It" have a name?

Mia: Let's just say this is one bet I'm winning, hands down.

Tad: So why are you here? You come to arrest David?

Anna: You want me to?

Tad: Well, don't you think it's a good idea, considering the man assaulted me, that he held me hostage in my own home, that he threatened me and my son?

Anna: Tad, are you here to press charges against him?

Tad: No. I think it's a little late for that. I came here to tell him if he intends to go anywhere near my family, as far as Iím concerned, I don't care what you do, it's self-defense. I will kill him.

Anna: He's not going to.

Tad: Why? What'd you do, issue another stern warning? Tell him you were going to lock him up, throw away the key?

Anna: He is not a threat to your family anymore, trust me.

Tad: Why? How do you know? You going to swear to me that the minute you turn your back he's not going to jump or kidnap somebody I care about?

Anna: David and I have dealt with some issues about Leoraís death that we were avoiding.

Tad: Yeah, well, do some of those issues happen to do with the future safety of my family?

Anna: Mm-hmm. He realizes that revenge is pointless.

Tad: Well, it's too bad he didn't have this epiphany before, you know, he knocked me unconscious with a stun gun and handcuffed me to a chair.

Anna: From what I see this morning, he has totally retreated into himself.

Tad: What do you mean? What'd you see this morning? You didn't spend the night here, did you? Anna, don't tell me you're going to start spending time with this psychopath.

Anna: Don't talk about him like that.

Tad: Well, how am I supposed to talk about him after everything the man has done?

Anna: I know him better than anyone. I know exactly what he is capable of. He is struggling now to change. I see that. I saw it last night.

Tad: No, no, what you saw last night was an act, and probably a damn good one if you're going to stand here this morning after he's tortured you and give him the benefit of the doubt.

Anna: Don't you think it's time for some forgiveness and healing?

Tad: No, I think it's time for you to get the hell out of here, ok, like take off and don't look back.

Anna: Here's the line, and you are crossing it.

Tad: Anna, I'm serious. Obviously, it's too late to save him, but it's not too late to save you.

Anna: Stop it.

Tad: No, no, come on, get your things, all right?

Anna: Stop it!

Tad: It's time for you to leave. The sooner, the better.

David: To what do I owe this unexpected visit?

Anna: Tad was just leaving.

Tad: I guess you're not the only one that can use the element of surprise.

David: All right, so surprise me.

Tad: It's just as well she's here. You consider this fair warning -- if you go anywhere near my family, if you so much as look cross-eyed at my son --

David: Warning noted and accepted. Anything else?

Tad: That's it? About turn, forward march?

David: You have a problem with that?

Tad: No, you have the problem, continually blaming me and my father for what --

David: Not anymore. I'm willing to let it go if you are.

Tad: That's it?

David: Yeah.

Tad: What's the catch?

David: That's it. No catch, Tad. Accept it.

Tad: Well, you're going to have to forgive me if I don't fall down with relief. I mean it, Iíve got my eye on you. If you're doing this for her benefit --

David: What is it with you Martins? You get what you want and you're still not satisfied. What the hell do you want from me?

Anna: Ok, you've made your point. I think you should leave.

Tad: Maybe you should leave with me.

Anna: No, I belong here. I'm staying.

Tad: Yeah. Well, you know where to find me if you need me.

David: Thank you.

Edmund: Al fresco dining, Szechwan style.

Maria: Mmm. Remember our first encounter with Chinese takeout?

Edmund: Julia left the cartons out for a couple hours, sponsored an e. coli fest.

Maria: Mm-hmm.

Edmund: Mm-hmm.

Maria: And actually, it was that very night, on my bathroom floor, as I tossed my moo goo gai pan and you wiped my forehead with a damp washcloth that I realized what kind of man you really were.

Edmund: I guess I'll always be grateful to Julia for making you so sick.

Maria: Well, you know what, I will always grateful to you for sticking with me through the toughest times in my life and never giving up on me.

Edmund: I never will. Hey.

Maria: Hi.

Anna: Ahem. Here.

David: Thanks.

Anna: What do you say we go and do something? Somewhere.

David: All right.

Anna: Go down to the beach, take a walk, get some air. Maybe pick up some food and a bottle of wine?

David: That sounds -- sounds perfect.

Anna: It's not perfect. I'll go put some things in a bag.

David: Oh, Anna -- I'm sorry.

Anna: What?

David: The free clinic. Janelle has been pulling double shifts ever since -- you know, ever since Leora, and I promised her that I would stop by today to relieve her. Believe me, I'd much rather spend the day with you.

Anna: That's ok.

David: I'm really sorry.

Anna: No, it's ok. If you promised Janelle, then you should go.

David: Yeah. Well, then I guess Iíll be going, ok? I'll call you later.

Anna: You have a good day.

David: You, too.

Maria: Oh, my God. I am so stuffed.

Edmund: I hope you saved room for one more surprise.

Maria: What's that?

Edmund: Here you go. Open it up, find out.

Maria: Oh, my God! Thank you.

Maria: This is fabulous. Do you know I have been looking all over creation for this?

Edmund: "The Neurobiology of Disease."

Maria: Oh, my God, how --

Edmund: Nothing like a little light summer reading.

Maria: This is great. I desperately need this for my recertification exam. Oh, my God. How did you know? Well, you knew.

Edmund: Yeah, well, you know, you talk in your sleep.

Maria: Oh, this is awesome, I mean, really awesome because the university bookstore has been out of it. It's on backorder. Thank you. And what is this?

[Gift rattles]

Maria: Makes a little jiggly jiggle.

Maria: Oh, Edmund, that's beautiful.

Edmund: Open it up.

Maria: Our babies.

Edmund: See what it says?

Maria: "March 11, 1994, June 16, 2003."

Edmund: That's the first time and the last time we're ever getting married.

Maria: You know those were two of the most important days in our lives together? And this one makes three.

Maria: That's a great picture of them.

[Door rattles]

Michael: Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Bianca: Let me go!

Michael: It's ok.

Bianca's voice: Get out!

Michael: Like hell I will! There you are.

Mia: Hello? Oh, wow.

Aidan: Hello? Who's out there? Is there something I can help you with?

Tad: Liza, I'm here.

Liza: Oh, Tad. That was fast.

Tad: Well, your call said it was a matter of life or death. Who needs saving?

Liza: You do.

Tad: How's that?

Liza: Well, you know what -- by the time I'm done with you, you'll be down on your knees.

Tad: Doing what?

Liza: Thanking me.

Tad: For?

Liza: For giving you what you need -- a love like you have never known before in your life.

Simone: Oh, Carlos.

Carlos: Simone.

Simone: What's up? What -- what are you doing down here?

Carlos: Well, I came to talk to Sydney, my boss, about resigning from the maintenance group.

Simone: That's what I was afraid of. Oh, Carlos, please, rethink this. Don't make this about Greenlee.

Carlos: This is not about Greenlee, Simone.

Simone: Carlos, I mean, losing someone hurts even if you're the one that does the letting-go, but, you know, you have to admit it and deal with it. Otherwise, you're not going to be a whole person, someone that you can give yourself to to someone else.

Carlos: Ok, ok, thanks for caring, but this is not denial. I mean, breaking up with Greenlee was just a pure act of sanity.

Simone: Ok, but, Carlos --

Carlos: No, no, no, Simone. Cuidate, ok? Got to go.

Simone: Shoot. Oh! Oh! Oh, Carlos!

Carlos: Simone? What happened?

Simone: Oh, my heel! My ankle! Oh, God!

Carlos: Ok, ok, ok. Don't move. Ok, you're all right, you're all right. You're all right, you're all right.

Simone: Oh, God, thank God for you.

Carlos: You're all right. Shh, shh. It's all right, it's all right, it's all right. You'll be ok. You're alive, right?

Simone: I think I broke it. Oh. Oh. Yeah, right there.

Carlos: Does it hurt?

Simone: Yes. Oh, yes. Oh, you have -- oh, you have the most strong, soft, gentle hands. Oh. Oh.

Lena: Finally, you came back to me. I missed you so much. I wanted to spend the night last night. I left you a note. Did you find it? Bianca, look at these buttons. You must have been in some hurry this morning.

Bianca: No, don't touch me.

Eden Riegel: If you're sexually assaulted, reach out for help. Don't try to go it alone like Bianca. The national sexual assault hotline at 1-800-656-hope offers free and confidential counseling. They know what you're going through, and they can help.

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

Mia: I could use a little help, and you seem pretty good with your hands.

Liza: If there's anybody who knows what you need, it's me, and I want to be able to give it to you.

Greenlee: Grow up. Jackson doesn't want you.

Mary: You don't know all the facts.

Bianca: How do you get over being raped?
