>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Jack: Greenlee.

Greenlee: I want you to do something for me, Jackson. Call my mother and tell her I don't want you to be my father.

Simone: I'm Greenlee.

Bonnie: And that means you're --

Simone: Kendall. Yes.

Bianca: How do you get over being raped?

Erica: Keeping it all bottled up inside me? That was one of the worst things I ever could have done.

David: Forgive me.

Anna: There's nothing to forgive.

Kendall: Did I interrupt your lube job?

Mia: Oh, that's not what we were doing. Oh, you're kidding.

Kendall: Yeah. So are you if you think you can get away with this.

Mia: Were you looking for me?

Kendall: No, I was looking for Aidan; but since I found you here playing hide the grease gun, why don't you and I have a little chat.

Aidan: Um -- this is probably a good time for me to go and get those parts.

Mia: I was just helping Aidan. Wasn't I?

Aidan: Yeah. Mia knows a heck of a lot about cars. She's full of surprises.

Kendall: Hmm. Isn't she, though?

Aidan: I'll go and get those pins.

Kendall: I'd like to knock you off of yours.

Mia: Not exactly the way I dreamed of spending an evening with a handsome man, but it'll do.

Kendall: You are such a cheater. Such a cheater. You cannot glom onto Aidan as your personal sexiest man.

Jack: Well, you certainly know how to get a guy's attention. Now, come on in here. Could you repeat for me what you just said? You want me to call your mother and tell her that you don't want me to be your stepdad?

Greenlee: Exactly.

Jack: I'm sorry. Am I missing something here?

Greenlee: You're engaged to Erica.

Jack: Uh-huh.

Greenlee: A woman almost as famous in life as she is in her own mind, and yet my mother thinks she has a shot at you through me.

Jack: Well, that's just crazy --

Greenlee: I agree. I agree. But in my mother's neurosis-laden mind, it makes sense. And Erica -- Ericaís convinced that there's some big threat to her future happiness with you, and I'm here to announce that it's not me.

Erica: Bianca, sweetheart, what is it?

Bianca: I -- um -- I'm tired.

Erica: Bianca, please, I want you to tell me what's troubling you. I know that we've had some problems lately, but you know that nothing could ever change my love for you.

Bianca: Yeah, I know, Mom. God, you've put up with so much.

Erica: What do you mean, honey? What are you talking about?

Bianca: I mean my eating disorder, my sexuality --

Erica: Sweetheart, you are a brilliant, wonderful, beautiful girl. And you have overcome difficulties and some disappointments, and you have managed to find out who you are. I admire you.

Bianca: I don't know why you do.

Erica: Because you're a good and strong person. Honey, please. Whatever it is, please, I'm here, and I will understand. And, honey, maybe I can make you feel better.

Bianca: Don't --

Erica: Oh, honey, dear God. Sweetheart, what? Honey, please tell me. What happened?

Anna: I miss you.

[Door opens]

Anna: If you have any more, just stick them on the pile, Sean. I'll get to it sooner or later.

David: Hey.

Anna: Hi. Oh, I thought you were Officer Lyman. Sorry.

David: No. I stopped by the house after I finished at the clinic just to clean myself up, and I saw you were gone, so --

Anna: Yeah, I just had to catch up.

David: I knew where to find you. I also figured that you hadn't eaten anything, so I picked you up some steamed dumplings and some spicy shrimp.

Anna: Thank you. That was nice. I just had a sandwich.

David: Well, then just throw it in the fridge and nuke them tomorrow.

Anna: You're not hungry?

David: No, I don't really have much of an appetite. So, what time are you getting off? I mean, we could stop by S.O.S. and maybe have a drink or something.

Anna: You don't sound like you want to.

David: Do you?

Anna: Not really.

David: Is this going to work?

Anna: What, you and I?

David: I'm trying, Anna. I'm really trying.

Anna: Yeah, I am, too. I mean, David, I would eat if I hadn't already eaten, and I would talk if I didn't have all this work to do. A lot of things have fallen through the cracks, you know, since --

David: Yeah. It makes concentrating on anything almost impossible.

Anna: I'm looking for a lead on Michael Cambias. He disappeared.

David: Well, then you obviously have a lot on your hands right now.

Anna: You know, we could do something next weekend. We could go to the beach or take a couple of days.

David: Yeah, we could go to the mountains. Yeah, that sounds like a great idea.

Anna: So we'll see how the week goes workwise, right?

David: Right, right. And if we can swing it, we'll take off.

Anna: Something to look forward to.

David: Yeah. So, I'll see you back at the house?

Anna: Yeah. I don't know how long I'll be.

David: I know how it works.

Anna: Ok, I'll call you.

David: That's all right. You don't have to. Just get there when you get there. I'll see you later, ok?

Anna: You bet.

Erica: Bianca, sweetheart, I can't do anything unless you tell me what it is, honey, that's upsetting you.

Bianca: I'm sorry.

Erica: No. Just what is it?

Bianca: I don't want to worry you, Mom.

Erica: Oh, honey, you just tell me.

Bianca: I -- I just -- I don't know. I've been thinking a lot lately.

Erica: About what?

Bianca: I don't know. Life and everything.

Erica: So have I, honey. So have I, sweetheart. I've been thinking a lot lately, too. This is a very special time. Your Uncle Jack and I are about to get married. You and Lena -- you're starting a relationship, and I know that can be very, very exciting. And I know it could also be terrifying because you don't know what the future will bring. But whatever happens, you know that we are going to remain just as close as a mother and daughter can be.

Bianca: I know. Thank you.

Erica: Sweetheart, I am just about to have the kind of life Iíve always dreamed of, and you are such a big part of that, honey. You know that, don't you?

Bianca: Yeah, I know.

Erica: And you're still going to be my maid of honor. Oh, you and Lena aren't thinking about making some world tour or anything? Is that what this is about?

Bianca: No, no, no.

Erica: So you can't be at the wedding?

Bianca: It's not that. It's -- I'm just -- I'm in a rotten mood, and I just need to shake it somehow. You know, I'm just dwelling on the negatives. I'm just dwelling on everything that's been keeping us from being happy all this time.

Erica: Oh, honey, why do that now? Don't do that now, sweetheart. Not now, when all of our dreams are about to come true. I'll tell you what, Bianca, the truth is I just have never felt so light. I think that I may finally have completely shed all that baggage Iíve been carrying around of the shame from my rape and my pregnancy and having gone through that. Honey, I swear to you everything looks so bright.

Bianca: And I am so happy for you.

Erica: I'm so happy for both of us, sweetheart. For both of us. Look, I know that in the past, I have been sometimes critical of your life, of your choice of partners. I'm so sorry, honey. Please believe me, that is a thing of the past. I am 100% in your corner --

Bianca: Ok.

Erica: And I always will be.

Bianca: Ok, Mom, stop, please. I love you.

Erica: I want you to believe in me, honey.

Bianca: Oh, I do.

Erica: Enough to tell me what is tearing you apart?

Jack: Greenlee, whatever trouble it is that you're having with --

Greenlee: I don't need any more personal drama. The Fusion-Enchantment cosmetics war is enough.

Jack: Ok, but how am I supposed to fix something if I don't know what's going on?

Greenlee: You haven't noticed my mother sneaking up behind you, ready to toss a net over your head?

Jack: Come on in, sit down. I have noticed that when I was in the hospital, your mother was very kind.

Greenlee: And that didn't immediately arouse your suspicion?

Jack: Well, she was a little overly effusive, but nothing has changed between your mother and me, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Maybe you don't think so.

Jack: Look, I'm marrying Erica. Your mother and I -- we were over a long time ago.

Greenlee: Well, I'm telling you, she has already cast you as Stepdaddy Extraordinaire.

Jack: Well, there is a bit of a catch, you see, because Iím not going to be marrying your mom. And as nice a young lady as I think you are, I'm not looking for another daughter, either. Although, I am always looking for another friend.

Greenlee: Why?

Jack: Heck, why not? It seems to me that maybe -- maybe you could use a friend right now.

Mia: What, we get to invent new rules as we go along in our bet? I'm sorry, I didn't get the memo.

Kendall: Where do you get off?

Mia: Where do you get off, storming in here like a jealous bride that's been done wrong?

Kendall: Aidan and I have been seeing each other.

Mia: Oh, yeah, you danced around Aidan, but no more than you messed with Boyd.

Kendall: Now, that's not entirely accurate.

Mia: Oh, ok, ok, you didn't get him into bed. Oh, no, you hold it right there. This thing is loaded, and I don't know any cleaner that will be able to get that out of your pretty little outfit.

Kendall: Nice. Very nice. Cheating and threats. That's nice.

Mia: Where do you get this cheating thing from? You have had tons of time to land Aidan. Not that that's what Iím intending to do.

Kendall: Oh, I'm so sure.

Mia: Oh! Because you've been too busy chasing after a certain manipulator, which is why I'm here -- to alert Aidan that he's out on bail.

Kendall: Oh, really? Did he buy that?

Mia: No, not entirely. But then I won him over with my knowledge of drive shafts, valves, and distributors.

Kendall: Oh, you are so fighting dirty.

Mia: Sometimes it pays to be a tomboy, and 411 -- I didn't see a "reserved for Kendall" sign attached to his dolly.

Kendall: His -- yeah, well, that better be the only board the two of you are sliding around on.

Mia: Ok, would you just chill out? Aidan is way too messed up over Maureen to have any interest in either one of us. No. You were going to put the moves on him, weren't you? You were, weren't you?

Kendall: I have to go talk to Aidan now.

Mia: You came here to heal his psychic wounds.

Kendall: Oh, please, give me a break, Mia.

Mia: You were going to cozy up and comfort him, weren't you? "Oh, poor Aidan, let me give you everything that Maureen couldn't." That is so tacky.

Kendall: Oh, like that wasn't your master plan.

Mia: Oh, please, you are as guilty as I am.

Kendall: It just so happens that Iím here to ask Aidan to be my bodyguard.

Mia: Oh, yeah? "Oh, protect me, Aidan. Throw your body over mine, Aidan." That is classic. Your bodyguard?

Kendall: Yes, I was. I was. Look, I saw your cop in the parking lot. He looks like Dennis Quaid. Mine is like Quasimodo but with bad breath. I just thought Aidan would be a better fit, that's all.

Mia: Ha! I could take that line and beat you with it.

Kendall: Whoa, I better run. You're scaring me.

Mia: You better run.

Kendall: Ooh, you're scaring me with that little butterfly necklace. Scary.

Mia: Oh, hi. So, did you find those pins?

Aidan: We're all out, so I'm going to have to order some more. For right now, we're done. It's time to pack up.

Kendall: Oh, what a shame.

Aidan: I'm just going to grab a beer and turn in early.

Mia: I'm free.

Kendall: Want some company?

Aidan: I'm not really in the mood for company, but thanks anyway, ladies.

Mia: Well, I'm available to assist you tomorrow, if you need.

Aidan: Thanks, but I'll call you if I need you.

Mia: All right, yeah. Just call me if you need -- I don't have much of anything going on.

Aidan: Ok, then. The light switch is over there. The door will lock behind you. Night.

Kendall: Night.

Mia: I'll be seeing you tomorrow.

Kendall: You will not. You will not. You don't need to be sticking around and greasing him up for your own purposes.

Mia: What about your purposes? I didn't --

Kendall: Excuse me!

Mia: I didn't notice you asking him to guard your body.

Kendall: Oh, that is it. Hey, hey! This is not over. You're going to pay for this blouse.

Mia: You touch me, I'll set my guard on you.

Kendall: Your guard? Your wimpy, little guard? My guy can kick your guard's butt.

Mia: Yeah, if he breathes on him. I swear, if you touch me, I'm going to scream.

Kendall: Go for it. You know what, I'm going out there. You better run, girl, because I am coming after you!

Bianca: Mom, if there were anything to tell, you know that I would tell you.

Erica: All right, but call me if you think that I can help you out of this.

Bianca: Yeah, I will.

Erica: Promise.

Bianca: I promise.

Erica: Ok. We certainly have a lot to do together. First, we have to find you the perfect dress, and then Iím going to need your input, honey, on everything. I mean, from the candles to the flowers to the cake. You have such exquisite taste.

Bianca: Well, after all, Mom, it is all in the genes.

Erica: Honey, I promise you, this is a turning point. From now on, everything is going to be easier.

[Knock on door]

Lena: Bianca, is -- oh.

Erica: Oh. Well. Lena's back. Lena, come in. I was just leaving. Bianca, you just remember -- nothing's impossible. Ok. Lena, I hope to see you again soon.

Lena: She's in a good mood.

Bianca: Yeah, she's -- she's high about her wedding.

Lena: How about you? I hope you're feeling better because I have something to show you. Bianca, I've made an itinerary for our trip to Europe.

Bianca: Oh, Lena, I -- I can't go out of town with you.

Lena: What? But I've made such wonderful plans.

Bianca: I'm sorry. You -- you just have to cancel them.

Simone: Well, sure. I mean, that's absolutely incredible. Is this on the level? I mean, if this is one of those, you know, prank shows where you try to humiliate us in front of the world --

Kendall: You are totally paying for this.

Mia: I didn't do anything wrong.

Kendall: I don't --

Simone: Then, great. I'll be there.

Kendall: Thank God, a witness. Would you look at my shirt?

Mia: She tried to pull out a handful of my hair.

Kendall: It was three strands, and this blouse cost 90 bucks.

Mia: It's not my fault you don't know how to bargain shop.

Simone: You guys, will you stop this petty bickering?

Kendall: This is not petty, first of all. This was on sale.

Mia: Oh, shut up. I might need surgery or a wig.

Simone: Ok, ok, you guys are never going to guess who is on his way over here right now.

Kendall and Mia: Aidan?

Simone: Aidan?

Kendall: Yeah, I caught Mia trying to move in on him.

Mia: Oh, my God. Look, he is a free agent. He's an adult. So back off. If I want him, Iíll get him.

Kendall: Oh, yeah, right. Please. You must have been sucking too much carbon monoxide when you were under that car.

Simone: What? You were under a car?

Mia: Doing repairs with Aidan. We actually have something in common.

Kendall: Yeah, you do -- you're both wrong for each other.

Mia: No.

Kendall: Yes, yes, yes. You know what, you may as well give it up because you're never going to get him. Just give it up.

Mia: No, you give it up.

Aidan: Care to wager?

David: What do you say five bucks a ball?

Aidan: Shouldn't you be at home with Anna? Or does she have to grieve alone?

Anna: Come in. What can I do for you?

Brooke: I talked to David a couple of days ago. I just happened to mention to him that I had gone to these meetings -- they're grief counseling -- since my little girl had died, and I just told him that they had helped me a lot.

Anna: What did he say?

Brooke: I don't think he was ready to hear about it yet.

Anna: You're wondering if I am? Or if I can persuade him?

Brooke: Anna, I don't want to be pushy.

Anna: No, you're not. You're being very kind.

Brooke: It's just I thought maybe there was something that I could do to help, since I've been through it.

Anna: God. How do you handle it?

Brooke: I was a mess for a long time. In fact, I still go to these bereavement counsels. In fact, Iím on my way right now. If you want, I could pick you up some literature. I could pick you up a schedule.

Anna: No, what time does it start?

Brooke: In about 15 minutes. It --

Anna: Let's go.

Brooke: You're --

Anna: Yes, I want to go.

Jack: You know, Greenlee, I hardly think of you as a stranger. And if I can go out on a limb here, I must say that success in business is a wonderful thing, but there's a lot more to life. And maybe it's none of my business, but I'm going to ask anyway. How are things on the other fronts?

Greenlee: Well, I did finally open myself up to someone again.

Jack: Ah, but I take it that didn't go very well?

Greenlee: It's not going, period. But I don't want to think about that. It was one big, fat, horrible mistake.

Jack: You know, maybe we should forget about the wine. We'll get some ice cream out, we'll find a Meg Ryan movie. We can laugh, we can cry. It'll be better than "Cats."

Greenlee: You know what, my mother may be a wack job about everything else, but she's right about you. You'd make a great father.

Erica: Oh, my God.

Erica: Well --

Greenlee: I know that I am the last person you expected to find here. You've been wonderful. Thanks for the wine.

Jack: You're welcome.

Erica: Don't let me run you off, Greenlee.

Greenlee: I really have to go.

Jack: I'll walk you to the door. Listen, you -- you take care, ok?

Greenlee: Thank you.

Jack: Ok. And you, gorgeous, where have you been? I've been missing you in a very big way

Erica: So, what was Greenlee doing here? Did -- did Mary send her over here? What did she tell you?

Jack: What are you so worried about? Erica, is there something I'm not supposed to know?

Lena: I get it. Erica's managed to persuade you not to travel with me.

Bianca: No, that's -- Lena, that's not it. It's her wedding is coming up and she needs me to help her plan it.

Lena: Come on, Bianca. From what I've heard, Erica could plan a wedding gagged, blindfolded, and taped to a chair.

Bianca: Lena, this time is really special to her. She and Uncle Jack are finally going to get together. I mean, they really are each other's soul mates.

Lena: I know how that feels.

Bianca: She just -- you know, there's so much to plan. There's the reception. There's dresses to fit. I owe her this.

Lena: Bianca, of course you do. I'm so sorry. I shouldn't have made that joke about your mother before. There's nothing wrong with a mother wanting her daughter to be involved in such a huge event. She wants you to be part of it, and I understand that.

Bianca: It's just that I don't know how much time Iím going to have for us.

Lena: Ok. I can deal with that.

Bianca: Really? You don't mind?

Lena: Of course I mind. I'll miss you every second. But it's only temporary, right?

Bianca: Oh, you are so understanding, Lena.

Lena: Bianca, what did you expect? I'm in love with you. That's why I came straight back. It's not because of how we left things before. It's just that I needed to come back and to tell you how much I love you.

Bianca: You canít. Not now.

Mia: I could charge you with assault, Kendall!

Kendall: Go ahead! I dare you!

Simone: Oh, you guys, stop screaming.

Mia: Not while there's breath in my body.

Kendall: I can take care of that for you.

Mia: I'm sure you will.

Greenlee: Oh, Kendall?

Kendall: What?

Greenlee: Not you, the other Kendall.

Mia: Oh, there's two? I may kill myself.

Kendall: Oh, allow me.

Greenlee: Hey. "Us" magazine mean anything to you guys?

Simone: Oh. Actually, there is an explanation for that. Yeah.

Mia: We were -- we were doing you a favor.

Greenlee: Oh, identity theft is not a favor.

Mia: Oh, that is so over the top!

Simone: Yeah.

Kendall: Can I kill her first, please?

Greenlee: Oh, no, get in line. They impersonated us, Kendall. Simone and Mia did an interview with Bonnie Fuller of "us" magazine, and they pretended to be us.

Kendall: What?

Mia: Bonnie knew we weren't you before the interview was over, ok?

Simone: Yes.

Mia: She thought it was funny -- sort of.

Simone: Yeah. I mean, we did it for the good of Fusion.

Mia: To promote the sexy man contest.

Simone: Yes.

Mia: When Bonnie came here to do the interview, you two weren't even here.

Simone: Yeah, yeah. You were off doing God knows what.

Mia: With God knows who.

Simone: Yeah. So we stood in.

Mia: Right.

Simone: We got the coverage we needed --

Mia: Thank you.

Simone: And the Fusion Sexy Man Contest is front and center, thank you very much.

Kendall: I knew it. I knew it. I knew it was a mistake to hire you.

Greenlee: Hey, you're the one that saddled us with Simone.

Simone: Oh! How dare you.

Mia: That is so incredibly low.

Kendall: You know what, you're only here because of your sister, Mia.

Mia: Excuse me -- I am the face of Fusionlips.

Kendall: Oh, no, now you are the pain in Fusion's rear, thank you.

Simone: Oh, my gosh.

Greenlee: Guess you hit a nerve.

Kendall: Guess so.

Simone: Oh, no.

Montel: Hello, ladies. I'm Montel Williams, and Iím almost hoping I'm in the wrong office. I'm looking for the ladies of Fusion. You know, maybe this was a mistake.

Simone: No, no, no, no!

Greenlee: Not at all, not at all. This is an incredible surprise.

Kendall: Whoo, whoo, whoo!

Greenlee: Have a seat.

Simone: Water.

Montel: Ok. Thanks.

Simone: Oh, my gosh.

Greenlee: Hi.

Montel: Hi.

Simone: Oh. Yeah, hi. Oh, I was trying to tell them that you were coming, but then we got sidetracked.

Montel: You know, I haven't heard this much yelling since I did an episode on my show about kids who refuse to clean their rooms.

Mia: Oh, my gosh. That's my favorite segment. Well, actually, my favorite are the makeovers. I love those.

Montel: You watch my show?

Mia: Are you kidding me? Oh, we watch you --

Simone: Oh, God, religiously. And let me tell you, you are so much more attractive in person.

Greenlee: And that soap when you played the judge -- please, you stole the entire show.

Kendall: So good, so good. But now you're here to see us?

Montel: Well, I was considering, you know, featuring Fusion -- well, you -- on my show. Maybe building a segment around your Sexiest Man Contest. That is, if you're interested.

Greenlee: Yes, yes, of course we are. Of course we are.

Montel: Well, we'd have to shoot this before your Sexiest Man, you know, voting begins.

Greenlee: That would be July 28. Yes, definitely.

Simone: You know, when your assistant producer called, I didn't believe her. I thought she was kidding, and here you are.

Greenlee: We would have come to you.

Simone: Yeah.

Montel: Well, I just wanted to see what you were like in your natural habitat.

Simone: Oh!

[Mia growls]

Mia: Are you disappointed?

Montel: No. I mean, from what I heard when I walked in here, I think you would make good television guests -- a little loud, but --

Kendall: Oh, we will. I promise, we will be. Promise.

Greenlee: This is incredibly flattering.

Montel: Well, you know, Bonnie Fuller is an old friend of mine, and she told me that Iíd have a little trouble figuring out which one of you was which. So you are?

Kendall: Oh, I'm Kendall Hart.

Montel: You're Ericaís daughter, right?

Kendall: Yes, I am.

Greenlee: And I'm Greenlee du Pres.

Montel: Hi.

Greenlee: And this Simone de Boudoir.

Simone: Hey.

Kendall: And Mia Nepotism. They're our employees.

Mia: That is not funny.

Simone: That's not my name.

Kendall: It's not, but it's a sad fact.

Simone: You know what, it won't be after we win that private bet and we're stockholders.

Mia: Partners.

Greenlee: If it happens.

Kendall: Yeah, bite your tongue.

Greenlee: They'll be silent partners. Silent.

Montel: Wait, wait, wait. Stop, stop. If I was going to do a show about feuding co-workers, I'd have all four of you on, but I'm not going to be able to do that. I can only have two. So you think you can figure this out without any loss of life?

Aidan: Yeah, she's been spread pretty thin since Leora passed away.

Aidan: She really needs your support, David.

David: You're about to cross over a line that you should really back away from. You don't have a clue what Anna and I lost, so don't tell me how to treat her.

Aidan: Oh, you don't think it hurt when Maria left me for Edmund?

David: You see, you just saying that shows how clueless you really are. Maria is alive. She's able to laugh. She can enjoy sunrises. She loves and is loved. Our daughter is dead, Aidan. She's in the ground. You want to compare pain?

Anna: Thank you.

Brooke: Oh, you're welcome. You're welcome, really. Sometimes it just helps to be connected, you know?

Anna: I've really been going through this alone.

Brooke: Maybe David will go with you if you decide to go to another meeting.

Anna: No. He barely shows his feelings with me. He's not going to do it in public.

Brooke: You never know. All right, listen, I have to go. If you want to go to another meeting, pick up the phone and give me a call.

Anna: Ok.

Brooke: Ok.

Anna: Brooke, that thing you said at the meeting about getting through this -- what was it?

Brooke: That you never get over -- over it. And losing a child, you just -- you know, you have to learn to go on any way you can. That's -- that's how you go on.

Anna: Yeah. Thanks.

Brooke: Ok.

Jack: Seriously, sweetheart, I get the feeling there's some big secret I'm not supposed to know about. What is it?

Erica: Of course there's no secret. I find Mary Smythe to be completely insufferable. And Greenlee -- I just don't trust her. I just don't.

Jack: Whoa, wait, wait. You don't trust Greenlee with me?

Erica: Don't be ridiculous. No, I just -- I find that Greenlee has taken business rivalry to an all-time low, and so, naturally, I am concerned when I find her here. I think she's probably snooping around, trying to find out something about Enchantment.

Jack: And that's your only concern -- Enchantment?

Erica: Well, that would be plenty, wouldn't it? So? What did she tell you? I mean, it seems like when I walked in, you were in the middle of some, you know, magical bonding moment.

Jack: Well, now, I wouldn't go nearly that far, actually. We were talking. We were talking about -- about you and me and Mary and Greenlee.

Erica: Oh, really? Well, then, so what was the upshot?

Jack: The upshot was -- get this -- evidently, Mary has me picked out as some kind of a surrogate father for Greenlee. What do you think of them apples, huh? How does that strike you?

Lena: You don't want me to love you?

Bianca: No, I -- it -- look, it came out all wrong. I'm just -- I just can't go away with you right now, and I'm going to be very busy.

Lena: Because Erica needs you.

Bianca: Yeah, and there's only so much of me to go around.

Lena: And you're afraid that I need you so much, I will get in the way?

Bianca: Something like that.

Lena: Hey. My letter. You didn't open it last night?

Bianca: What, you sent me a letter?

Lena: No, I came here last night, I told you. But it was so late, I left it. Myrtle and Boyd -- we didn't want to wake you.

Bianca: Last night.

Bianca: I'm sorry. I -- you know, I didn't know about it. I'll read it tonight.

Lena: Bianca, you know, if there's anything you want to talk about -- anything at all -- or if you don't want to talk, either way, Iím here for you.

Bianca: Thank you.

Lena: So -- I guess it's getting late, and I think you need some time to yourself.

Bianca: Yeah.

Lena: Sweet dreams, huh? And remember, everything I wrote in there I mean.

Kendall: There's no discussion about it.

Mia: To be fair, we'll draw straws.

Greenlee: You're kidding.

Simone: Mia and I did the interview with Bonnie. That's how you and your people found out about the Sexy Man Contest, right?

Montel: I'm not in the middle of this.

Greenlee: Simone, you've already had your 15 minutes of stolen fame.

Kendall: Yeah, now it's our turn. Greenlee and I founded Fusion.

Mia: But you couldn't have kept it running without us.

Simone: Exactly.

Kendall: Look, Mia, when Montel does a show on disgruntled employees, we'll be sure to include you in that.

Mia: Hey, hey, I am an integral part of this business. My perspective is every bit as important as yours is. Right, Mr. Williams?

Simone: Yes, and the Sexy Man Contest is totally -- I repeat, totally -- mine, which means I have to be on the show, right? Right, Montel?

Greenlee: You work for me --

Kendall: For us.

Greenlee: Which means that any ideas you have for Fusion belong to us.

Simone: You can't --

Kendall: You came up with the idea. We were the ones who started the company, so we really own the idea.

Simone: Oh!

Mia: Oh, please.

Greenlee: Isn't that how it works, Montel? Tell them, Montel.

Kendall: Come on, tell them.

Greenlee: He's gone.

Kendall: What the hell? Great.

Mia: Well, with all of your carrying on, he probably wanted to preserve his hearing.

Greenlee: Oh, yes, insult us. That will make us decide to put you on "Montel."

Kendall: Boy, you got brains. You got brains.

Aidan: You're right. You're right, David. I've never known pain like what you and Anna are suffering right now.

David: Well, you should be happy for that fact.

Aidan: But I still would never trust you around my aunt again.

David: I don't need your trust, Aidan. I need Annaís.

Aidan: You're damn right.

Officer: Hey.

Second Officer: I got something you need to look at. This guy Murphy -- he's just horrible.

First Officer: Ok, I got you.

Erica: Well, I'd like to strike Mary Smythe. Several times. Imagine suggesting that you play Daddy to Greenlee.

Jack: Crazy.

Erica: It's crazy.

Jack: Yeah.

Erica: Oh, she needs a job.

Jack: You really think putting Mary to work would clear this up?

Erica: Well, the thing is she's in between tennis pros and cabana boys, so she's bored. She's got nothing to do. So it seems like she's just trying to cause trouble for us.

Jack: Well, I guess that might be a possibility, sure.

Erica: She's not going to cause trouble for us, is she?

Jack: Uh-uh, no.

Erica: Because we are going to get married, and we are going to live ecstatically ever after.

Jack: That is the plan.

Erica: And I'm not going to let Mary Smythe cause trouble for us.

Jack: Not going to let me go that easily, huh?

Erica: Never. Never. Under any circumstances.

Lena's voice: "Bianca, my sweet. I wanted so much to wake you and tell you how much I love you, to hold you close and promise that the joy you've given me will light every day of our future. But it's late, so I leave you to dream your sweet dreams and to sleep in peace, knowing that you'll always be safe in my heart. Good night, my angel. Rest well and know that you're loved."

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

Erica: What are you talking about? What do I have to prepare myself for?

Kendall: Battle.

Greenlee: Well, Dad, do you want to set Mom straight, or should I?

Michael: Bad dream?
