All My Children Transcript Monday 1/17/05
Proofread by Gisele
Asa: We are here to place our claim on Ace.
J.R.: First of all, his name is not Ace, and he's not here.
Kevin: Babe kidnapped him from my hotel room, and I intend to get him back. He's my son.
J.R.: Well, according to his DNA, he's mine.
Adam: There's no point in getting all worked up, gentlemen. Must be a shock to learn that you're raising my son's child, but -- although I'm sure you can understand.
Asa: How -- Chandler, how do you and this boy of yours have the guts to claim that he's yours?
J.R.: It's a fact.
Kevin: The only fact that matters is that I have legal custody. If you think that's going to change because of your pathetic fantasy --
J.R.: That's my son in New Orleans.
Kevin: Well, thanks for the tip, but when Ace is found, he's coming home to me.
J.R.: Really? What if you're not around to come home to?
TV Announcer: There's been a major breakthrough in the kidnapping case of the son of Pennsylvania’s Lieutenant Governor, Kevin Buchanan. Although details are being withheld, sources close to the investigation anticipate an arrest could come at any time.
[TV turns off]
Liza: Let's just hope the trail is cooling down.
[Knock on door]
Jamie: I'll handle it. Sorry, Father, I think you have the wrong place.
Tad: The hell I do.
Maggie: You love me? What am I supposed to do with that?
Bianca: I don't know. It just came out.
Maggie: Is it a trick or something to try to save me and keep me from Jonathan?
Bianca: No, that's not what this is. It's the truth. I love you.
Maggie: Stop it. No, we had this conversation months ago. Remember? Love me or love me like a friend.
Bianca: No. Maggie, things have changed.
Maggie: Because Lena -- because Lena dumped you?
Bianca: No, that's not what this is at all.
Maggie: Stop it. I am with Jonathan now. It's where I want to be.
Jonathan: How'd you get in here?
Greenlee: Well, it took you long enough.
Jonathan: Excuse me?
Greenlee: I couldn't wait any longer, let myself in. I hope you don't mind.
Jonathan: You don't have a key.
Greenlee: A lock pick. Your brother gave it to me, taught me how. Amazing little tool. I always carry it in my purse.
Jonathan: I know you're family, Greenlee, but this is my home.
Greenlee: I'm sorry. I didn't think you'd mind.
Jonathan: I'm really, really curious. Why did you break in here?
Kendall: It's me, it's Kendall. Kendall? The woman that you forgot to make breakfast for this morning, remember? Ethan, please.
Maggie: Just because your relationship with Lena didn't work out doesn't mean that you can go and trash mine, ok? I'm not going to let it happen. Jonathan makes me feel like no one ever has. He makes me feel wanted and needed and beautiful.
Bianca: Maggie, you're trying way too hard.
Maggie: Me? Me? What about you? The sermon, this stupid pamphlet? You know what? Butt out of my life!
Bianca: Maggie -- Maggie, no. Maggie, ok, stop, please. You can hate me, you can cuss me out -- I don't care -- but don't go back to him. Don't put yourself in danger.
Maggie: Danger? Please. Please, he loves me. He talks about his plans, our plans, our future together. And once -- once he just finds a job where he's appreciated and where he's needed, we are going to have that future together, and don't ever expect to be a part of it.
Greenlee: I came for the Roberts-Renfield file. It wasn't in the office, so I figured it was here in your computer. So, how about that file?
Jonathan: I didn't realize it was so important.
Greenlee: That broken bottle was there when I got here, I swear.
Jonathan: Accidents happen.
Greenlee: Actually, I'd like your opinion.
Greenlee: Well, I've been going crazy lately -- normal crazy, not psycho crazy -- about who drugged me. I mean, who would hate me so much that they'd want to medicate me into the loony bin?
Jonathan: You already know what I think about that. There's only one person that radical. Kendall.
Kendall: Ethan. My God, I was so worried about you.
Ethan: I -- I almost killed you.
Kendall: No. No, Ethan, you couldn't. You couldn't. You don't have it in you.
Ethan: Don't I? Until you looked in my eyes and you said my name, I didn't know who I was, what I was capable of doing.
Kendall: I know exactly who you are. You're Ethan. You're Ethan. You're lousy at strip poker, great at three-point baskets. You make a hell of an Eggs Benedict -- which, by the way, you whiffed on. Remember what you promised me this morning -- breakfast in bed? Instead, you were out the door.
Ethan: Seems like months ago.
Kendall: Yeah, I know.
Ethan: I picked up that gun like it was keys, gloves -- just autopilot. Maybe I just wanted to scare Zach, threaten him, see some fear in his eyes. Maybe I wanted to kill him.
Kendall: No, I don't believe that.
Ethan: I had this -- this craziness in my head. It took everything that I had not to pull that trigger. I just wanted -- I just wanted some payback, I wanted some revenge! I just wanted to see his blood. Kendall, what is happening to me?
Asa: You take that threat back, boy.
J.R.: Don't call me "boy."
Asa: I'd like to smack you right here and now.
Adam: Asa, Asa, Asa, relax. You haven't lost your taste for 18-year-old scotch, have you?
Kevin: This isn't a social call.
Adam: No, it isn't. It's a serious problem. It requires serious thought, not a brawl. So, why don't we try to settle this in a civilized manner?
Asa: Yes, yes, that'd be good -- like the McNally property.
Adam: Oh, Asa, that was over 20 years ago.
Asa: I got a long memory, Adam, especially when I'm screwed over. Kevin, Adam and I were competing for some land, 1984. I got the deed, he bought the property adjacent. And what do you think he did? He started to slant drill to steal my oil.
Adam: You scammed your way into that property, and my drilling was straight.
Asa: Like a damn pretzel.
Adam: Well, luckily, we're both old enough and wise enough to put that behind us.
Asa: I want to tell you something, Adam -- I don't give a damn how much oil you steal, but you or him are not going to steal my great-grandson.
Adam: You're entitled to any great-grandson that belongs to you. But that baby is a Chandler.
Liza: You, dressed as a priest? Aren't you afraid that lightning is going to strike you down?
Tad: Well, my chicken suit is in the cleaners --
Tad: And I didn't want to take any chances. Adam's already assigned a private investigator to follow me around Pine Valley, and I just spotted another one at the airport.
Babe: I'm sure they have their whole army out.
Tad: I'm afraid a private lynch mob is the least of your problems because J.R. has told the Llanview police and the feds that you two are the ones that kidnapped the baby. And because you were spotted in town, I'm sure they've got this whole area covered.
Babe: So pretty much we're cooked.
Tad: Not if I can help it.
Jamie: So what's the plan?
Tad: I'm going to get you out of here as soon as I can, and you and Colby. Where is she?
Liza: In her room.
Tad: Good. I'm sorry, Liza. I didn't think I was going to have to uproot you this fast.
Liza: No, look, you know, I'm not against a new zip code. I just want to keep Colby safe.
Babe: And James.
Tad: Which is why tomorrow you two are going to Argentina.
Babe: What, Argentina?
Tad: I've already talked to Juan Pablo. It's all arranged.
Babe: Uh --
Jamie: Thank you.
Tad: Don't thank me. I'm just a father taking care of his son. I think you know how that feels. You're going to be just fine, little munchkin.
Babe: I guess if we're leaving the country, I'm going to get James' stuff together.
Jamie: Ok, yeah.
Liza: I'll help you.
Jamie: You know, I'd walk through fire for that kid.
Tad: I'd say you already are.
Jamie: I can't help it. I remember the first time he looked at me and the way he looked at me -- like he knew. He reached out and grabbed my heart. Now he owns it.
Tad: I know the feeling. Listen, there's something about tomorrow you need to realize.
Jamie: That I should brush up on my Spanish.
Tad: No. After you get on that ship, it'll probably be the last time you ever see American soil.
Jamie: Or you and Mom.
Asa: Ace is a Buchanan -- my name, my great-grandson -- and none of your damn bull is going to change that.
J.R.: He's my son, old man.
Asa: Don't you ever call me "old man."
J.R.: Adam Chandler III is his name.
Adam: Gentlemen. We knew this wasn't going to be simple.
Kevin: Oh, it's simple. It's sad, but it's simple. Look, I sympathize with you, J.R. I do. To lose the baby that you thought was your daughter has to be devastating. On top of that, to learn that your son was killed in a horrific accident --
J.R.: He didn't.
Kevin: Well, that's what I call denial. Look, I understand it. It's a lot easier to believe that Cramer kidnapped him and that he's still alive and well than to face the truth.
J.R.: The only truth is he's been raised by strangers, but that's about to soon change.
Kevin: Well, that's your theory. There's no proof. Look, even if we wanted to check out your story out of courtesy, we can't, not with Cramer in the ground.
J.R.: Any idea who put him there?
Kevin: That's police business.
J.R.: Or maybe a family matter. Maybe Cramer got a little greedy, wanted to spill the truth. That's some serious motivation for murder, isn't it, Kev? You and your old buddy Cramer partners in crime because you knew your baby was stolen?
Babe: I guess if we're leaving the hemisphere, I'm going to go get myself packed. Ok. I -- I have a letter for Mama. It's just some snaps of the baby from Christmas and New Year's and stuff. Do you think maybe I could give it to you to give to her?
Babe: I didn't want to mail it with -- you know, with a postmark and all, so --
Tad: Smart. If I know your mother, she'll probably sleep with these pictures under her pillow.
Babe: Could I ask you a favor?
Tad: What is it?
Babe: I know that I've already asked you so much and you've -- you've already done so much for me, and I really will be forever grateful. Just this one more thing, I promise. Can you just talk to Jamie for me? Just convince him to let me go? Tad, please, just take Jamie back to Pine Valley with you.
Kevin: You think I kidnapped my own son and then killed Paul Cramer? That's ridiculous.
Asa: Whoa, whoa. Kevin did not kill anyone.
J.R.: That's just an opinion. Look, you know, I really don't care who offed Cramer. All I care about is getting my son back, and when I do, I will get proof that he's a Chandler.
Kevin: Well, you might want to cap that enthusiasm there, Junior. We did a little poking around, found out that you've been arrested for -- what was that? I believe drugging your poor wife?
Adam: Well, if you'd been a little more thorough, you'd know the case was dropped.
Asa: Adam, there's no reason the case can't be reopened. Isn't that right, Lieutenant Governor?
Kevin: Just a phone call away, really.
Adam: I thought we'd dispensed with threats.
Kevin: It's no threat. I feel sorry for Bella, or Babe -- whatever the hell her name is. I do. I mean, she loved that little girl very much. She obviously lost it when she had to return her to Bianca Montgomery. It makes sense that she became delusional and believed that Ace was her baby.
J.R.: Delusional? Babe is a lot of things, but she's definitely not that.
Kevin: Yeah, well, maybe she had a little help. Last time I saw her, she was confused and distraught. Now it makes sense. Her mental state was due to the drugs that you obviously slipped her.
Adam: Don't let him get to you, son. Don't let it.
Kevin: Look, all I'm saying is that Babe, when she's found, is going to need help -- medical, psychiatric.
J.R.: The only thing that Babe needs is to be locked up for the rest of her life.
Babe: I'll be all right.
Tad: Now, wait a minute -- after everything you two have been through together, you don't want him to go with you?
Babe: It's just that --
Tad: Where's this coming from?
Babe: It's not right. This is my mess.
Tad: If I remember correctly, it was Jamie's idea to snatch little James in the first place.
Babe: Only because he wanted to help me. Look, this isn't how I wanted it to turn out. It's totally spun out of control and become something I didn't want. And Jamie -- he's already in too deep. He's -- he's done too much already, but leaving the country and never seeing his family again -- that's going way too far.
Tad: It's Jamie's choice.
Babe: Tad, what kind of life is that for him? It's not like J.R. is ever going to stop hunting us down, and whatever happens to me, it's fine -- I deserve it and I'll deal with it. But if something happens to Jamie because of me, I'm never going to be able to forgive myself. So that's why you have to take him home with you. You got to just get him away from me and out of this mess.
Tad: Babe, how much does Jamie mean to you?
Liza: How did you ever hook up with Babe and her son?
Jamie: You have problems with Krystal, and I get that. But Babe's different.
Liza: Is she? I mean, don't get me wrong. She's -- she's sweet and kind, and she knows how to get what she wants.
Jamie: Babe didn't pull me into doing anything I didn't want to.
Liza: Well, she's made some mistakes.
Liza: You could get hurt. Bless you.
Jamie: We've all made mistakes. But that doesn't make us bad people.
Liza: Most people don't keep their best friend's baby.
Jamie: Babe did that for J.R., not herself. I know who she really is. I know her heart.
Liza: I'm sure you do. But, you know, maybe it's time to say good-bye and wish her luck. I mean, going to Argentina, you will be away from your friends and your family maybe forever.
Jamie: I'm doing it for the same reason you took Colby away from Pine Valley -- to save that little smile.
Liza: You know, something tells me that there is more here than just this baby's welfare. Am I right?
Jamie: I love Babe.
Babe: I love Jamie, and I love him with everything that's in me. But he doesn't know it and he's not going to.
Ethan: When I had Zach in my sights, it took everything in me not to pull that trigger. I've never felt that kind of rage before.
Kendall: Hey, you had every right to. Listen to me -- Zach lied to you over and over again. He betrayed you, he denied you. That would've put anyone over the edge. I mean, did he -- did he even explain why? Did he apologize?
Ethan: With my gun trained on his heart, he told me that he would deny me again if he had the chance.
Kendall: I'm sorry.
Ethan: I just wanted to make him feel a fraction of the pain that I have had to go through.
Kendall: Yeah, well, Zach doesn't feel. He doesn't feel. He's all about self-preservation. He's like a cockroach. He is way beyond contempt.
Ethan: In that moment, so was I. It's like I was taking my first steps towards being a Cambias, and it changed everything. If Ryan hadn't come along when he did -- I do not want to be the man I was today.
Kendall: You're not. You're not, ok, Ethan? That was one second out of your life. It's the past, it's gone. It means nothing.
Ethan: Then why do I still feel it inside me?
Anita: I hope I gave you enough time with Maggie.
Bianca: Oh, yeah, you gave me plenty of time to turn it into a total disaster.
Anita: Oh, what happened?
Bianca: I don't know, I'm still trying to figure it out. Do you ever look at somebody and all of a sudden, in a flash, just feel something that you didn't quite expect?
Anita: What are we talking about?
Bianca: This give you a clue about how well I got through to Maggie?
Anita: Bianca, so you keep trying.
Bianca: How? The Maggie that I know would never let a guy abuse her. So how is it that that same woman is running back to a man who could hurt her or even kill her?
Greenlee: Maybe you're right. Maybe Kendall did drug me. I just don't want to believe it.
Jonathan: If you'd get past your wishful thinking for a second, you'd see I'm right. Come on, who else is that desperate? Who else has been that twisted that they would hurt you to get to him?
Greenlee: Well, why not just go after Ryan himself? Not like she hasn't done it before.
Jonathan: That wouldn't solve the problem.
Greenlee: I'm the problem?
Jonathan: Absolutely. Whatever you say, whatever you do, whatever you think, that's all that matters to him. I mean, for him there is no one else. Everything he does, he does for you. So if somebody wants to get close to him, they'd probably have to get rid of you.
Greenlee: X-ing me to get to Ryan -- pretty extreme.
Jonathan: Kendall's whole game. Can't let your guard down, Greenlee, just because she's playing nice.
Greenlee: I'll keep that in mind.
Jonathan: What's the rush?
Greenlee: I've got to get this file back to the office.
Jonathan: It can wait. Why don't you kick back, have a beer. Why don't you teach me about lock-picking because who knows when that could come in handy.
[Knock on door]
Jonathan: Mags. There you are -- the love of my life.
Maggie: Oh, I didn't know we were having company. I forgot my key.
Jonathan: We were just about to have a beer, huh?
Greenlee: I really should get going.
Maggie: No, please don't go on account of me.
Greenlee: Really, I'm late already. Excuse me.
Bianca: Maggie is never intimidated by anyone, so how is it that she can't see through Jonathan?
Anita: Maybe a part of her doesn't want to. Maybe she was rejected by somebody that she really cared about and she feels unloved, lonely. And along comes Jonathan, you know, telling her that she's the greatest thing on the planet, and it makes her forget about whoever let her down.
Maggie: Why did you lock me out?
Jonathan: I was upset.
Maggie: So was I. You couldn't open the door and talk about things?
Jonathan: No. I couldn't chance it. I wanted to make sure I had control of my temper. It was just -- it was my messed-up way of protecting you.
Bianca: Maybe Jonathan won't hurt Maggie again.
Anita: Chances are. The worst thing is abusive guys are pretty unpredictable. Dinner gets burned, maybe not such a big deal. But buy the wrong soda and they go ballistic. It's like living with Jekyll and Hyde.
Maggie: So you're not mad?
Jonathan: Of course not, no. Baby, I locked you out of our apartment. I'm the jerk. I'm just -- I'm just glad you came back. I don't deserve someone as wonderful as you.
Maggie: What do you always say that? You know, why do you put yourself down?
Jonathan: It doesn't matter.
Maggie: Yes, it does.
Jonathan: Maggie, sometimes you -- you say things, you put me down. You probably don't even know you're doing it. It just -- it's hard on the old ego, you know?
Maggie: What do I say to hurt you? Jonathan? Please tell me.
Ethan: I am not going to be like my father. This -- this ends now.
Kendall: Ethan, listen to me. You are not your father, ok? His sins are not yours.
Ethan: I think it's a little early to lay odds on that one.
Kendall: No, listen to me. Listen, I had to deal with my father. Now you've got to do the same.
Ethan: You were lucky, Kendall. Your father was kind enough to die on you.
Kendall: Oh, ok, you think that makes it easier? No, dead or alive, you still have to deal. It was -- it was a biological mistake that Zach was your father. He was a sperm donor, not a dad.
Ethan: Kendall, he still shares my blood.
Kendall: Yes, and so does your mother. Hannah -- she must have been a hell of a woman, Ethan. I mean, to keep you away from the Cambias name, that takes guts, real guts. She sounded amazing. Now, that is someone for you to be proud of, Ethan. Be proud to be her son. Your mother has sacrificed everything for you.
Babe: Look, you know Jamie. He's so darned kind and noble. I tell him that I love him, we both know he's going to do the honorable thing even if that's not how he feels. He'll be stuck, he'll have no way out, but at least this way he'll have an escape hatch.
Tad: I don't think he's looking for an escape hatch. I think he thinks you two are happy together.
Babe: He is everything that I've ever wanted in a guy. But I've held on to him way too long and he has a life that he needs to get back to. That is why I have to let him go.
Tad: Maybe he wants a new life.
Babe: Tad, he deserves a life better than -- than being on the run a million miles away from his family. If he goes back with you, you could -- you could help him. You could convince everyone that he had nothing to do with the kidnapping, that he just followed me down to Florida to convince me to give the baby back. Then that way he'd be free.
Jamie: Babe needs to be free to do what she has to do. Now, if I blab that I'm crazy about her, it's just more pressure and -- like she isn't stressed enough already. She'd feel obligated to give us a shot like she owed me. So, as much as I do love Babe, being friends is the only thing to do.
Liza: Sounds logical. And I will tell you that logic will fly into the face of love any day of the week. Honestly, I encourage you to be honest and tell her how you feel.
Babe: I love him. I love him way too much to see him lose everything.
Tad: I appreciate the sentiment, but Jamie's not exactly a kid anymore. He hasn't listened to me for a long time, and he's certainly not going to start now.
Babe: But he respects you.
Tad: And I respect him and his decisions even if I don't agree with them. He's not a fool. He's not about to give you up, certainly not on my say-so. If you don't want him to go with you, he's going to have to hear it from you.
Jamie: Maybe I will tell Babe how I feel.
Liza: When? Someday? Because in the meantime, you're James' daddy and you're Babe's buddy? How long are you going to let that go on?
Jamie: All I know is that I was meant to do this, and as crazy as that sounds, nothing has ever felt so right. Every time I look at Babe, every time I look at James, nothing else matters. Just to keep them safe and happy and loved.
J.R.: That boy does not have your blood.
Kevin: The fact that Ace isn't my biological child doesn't change the fact that I'm his father. I walked the floors with him, I watched him sleep, I fed him. You love a baby because you do.
J.R.: That's a nice speech. Big problem -- you walked the floors with a baby that was stolen from the day he was born.
Kevin: According to you. According to the court, I have custody.
Adam: No, what you have is a piece of paper once those DNA test results are in.
Asa: There will be no DNA test taken on Ace.
Adam: We don't need your permission, Asa. I have plenty of judges who will order that test.
Kevin: You know what? You can bribe all the judges you want. I'll tell the state's attorney general's office to block any court order you manage to get.
Asa: People tend to listen when the Lieutenant Governor calls.
Adam: Well, my old fishing buddy, the Governor, listens when I call. So you're putting a stranglehold on the courts? Well, I guess we'll just have to try this case in the court of public opinion. When this story breaks -- and it will -- my son is going to have the people on his side. What he thought was his child was ripped out of his arms on Christmas Eve, and his own son was kidnapped by his slut of a wife who ran off with his brother. There's not going to be a dry eye in the commonwealth. You can't buy that kind of sympathy.
Kevin: We happen to have our own newspaper. It's called "The Banner."
Adam: Oh, "The Banner," yeah. Oh, spare me. No, you're going to be outside looking in. A public official is caught up in a baby-snatching? Is he innocent, is he guilty? It doesn't matter. The damage to your reputation would be irreparable.
Kevin: You can't prove any of this.
Adam: Don't have to. That's the beauty of it. Lies, whispers, innuendoes, that's -- that's all it takes.
J.R.: You know, we Chandlers fight to the death for our children.
Kevin: Well, then prepare to die because this is a fight you're going to lose. You don't stand a chance.
Asa: We're done here, Kevin.
Kevin: Thanks for the scotch.
Kendall: Ok, listen, think about this. Think about this. The woman who raised you was not lying on her deathbed, so all of those feelings that you had growing up, those feelings that you didn't belong -- Ethan, you were right.
Ethan: I expected being right to feel a lot better than this. I must have known. That must be why I put off the test, because I didn't want to get stuck to Zach.
Ethan: You should answer that.
Kendall: All right, don't -- don't go after your gun.
Greenlee: It's me.
Kendall: I can't talk right now.
Greenlee: I broke into Jonathan's apartment and tried to log onto his computer.
Greenlee: To get evidence that he drugged me. He came home.
Kendall: You got caught, you idiot. What is wrong with you?
Greenlee: I handled it. He didn't give anything up, but he really creeped me out.
Kendall: All right, you know what? I don't have time to deal with this right now. I'm in the middle of something.
Greenlee: Ethan? Ryan told you to stay away from him.
Kendall: Yeah, well, I don't roll over and play fetch either.
Greenlee: Who's the idiot here?
Kendall: Just tell Ryan about Jonathan.
Greenlee: You're a big help.
Anita: Men like Jonathan -- they use it. They twist a woman into so many knots, she starts to believe that she's actually responsible, that it's her fault, that she pushed him too far.
Bianca: Maggie’s a fighter. There's no way that she would put up with that.
Anita: It sounds like Maggie is too off-balance to fight. If she's like most victims, she's convinced herself that she has to do the right thing and say the right thing and the abuse will stop.
Maggie: Will you just tell me what I did wrong? What I said? I'm just trying to make sense of this.
Jonathan: I lost it when you said you were disappointed in me, and you called me stupid how many times? I -- I felt like I was under attack and I wanted it to stop, so I lashed out and I'm an idiot. I did it with my fists instead of words. Maggie, I love you so much. I just -- I want to be everything to you. And if I think you look down on me, if I think that you feel like I'm an idiot, I don't --
Maggie: Oh, no, no, no. I don't. I love you so much. I never meant to hurt you. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I promise, I’ll never do that again.
Bianca: That's how it was for me when I was raped. I thought for sure that it was my fault.
Anita: Then you have a beat on what's going on in Maggie’s head.
Bianca: I was so ashamed. I thought that I was the one who set Michael off. As crazy as it sounds, I thought that I was the one to blame.
Anita: Thank God that -- that you got through it.
Bianca: Yeah, with counseling and because of Maggie. I wish you'd known her then. She was fearless. She was the first person that I told and the only person that I knew that I could count on. Really, I knew that I could tell her anything and everything, and somehow I felt that it would make everything ok. God, why did I ever let go of that?
Jonathan: May I have this dance?
Maggie: I told Bianca to leave you alone and to stay out of our lives.
Jonathan: You're my champion. You know that? You're incredible. God, you'd go to the wall for me. Oh, you're so beautiful. You're incredible in bed, too.
Maggie: I am?
Jonathan: How could you not know that? You turn me on like no one ever has. How could you ever think you were gay?
Maggie: I was wrong. It was all a mistake.
Singer: Breathless in your arms
Singers: I'm breathless
Bianca: I just want to go in there to Maggie’s apartment and grab her and yank her out of there.
Anita: All she would do is fight to stay.
Bianca: So what are we supposed to do, just watch? Just give her more pamphlets to rip up?
Anita: You -- you be her friend, spend time with her, try to get back the relationship that you used to have. Because if you push her too far, she's going to run.
Bianca: Yeah, I did that and she's gone.
Kendall: What is it?
Ethan: Promise me that you'll make sure that I don't change, that this Cambias curse won't come true. I can't lose everything I love, Kendall. I can't lose you.
Kendall: I promise.
Tad: Guys, how's the packing going?
Babe: Oh, we're almost done.
Tad: Well, if it's all the same to you, little James is down for the count.
Liza: In my bedroom.
Tad: So we were thinking about taking this little whirling dervish out for some fresh air.
Colby: And some ice cream.
Tad: I know, three scoops. I remember. So, you'll be ready?
Jamie: Yeah, we will. We'll be ready.
Tad: All right.
Babe: One way or the other.
Jamie: I -- I can't do this.
Babe: What do you mean?
Jamie: There's -- there's something I have to tell you and I can't wait.
Babe: There's something that I need to tell you, too. I don't want you going with us to Argentina.
Jamie: Where the heck did that come from?
Babe: Look, I'm going to be forever grateful for everything that you've done. And you've been so good to James and to me. But it's not like we have a future. You have your life and I have mine. That's why I'm going to say good-bye right now.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
J.R. (to David and Krystal): It's time to make you pay.
Jamie: I love you, Babe. You love me, too.
Greenlee: Things haven't been so great between me and your baby brother. This is so hard.
Ryan: You can tell me anything.
