Bianca: We're running out of time, Ryan. We have to go and help Maggie now.

Ryan: Ok, I will, I'll talk to Jonathan, all right? I will find out what's --

Bianca: Ok, when, when, after they elope? After he's put a ring on her finger and a chain around her neck? If we wait that long, then Maggieís life or whatever is left of it is going to get a whole lot scarier.

Ryan: "Whatever's left of it"? What is that supposed to mean?

Bianca: It means abuse gets worse, not better. You know that. That's why I need you to come with me, because whenever I try to talk to her alone, I seem to make things worse.

Ryan: Jonathan loves Maggie. I know that for sure.

Bianca: Jonathan hurts Maggie. I know that, and I will do anything to make sure that it never happens again, anything from knocking him out to locking him up.

Jonathan: You think I hurt women? What women?

Lily: May I please see your medicine chest?

Jonathan: You think I drugged Greenlee? You can get the hell out of here.

Lily: Don't touch me!

Jonathan: You think I'm going to hurt you, too?

Lily: Touching hurts me.

Jonathan: Oh, yeah? Do you break? Not enough calcium as a baby.

Lily: I have Autism Spectrum Disorder and my nerves get overloaded when someone touches me.

Jonathan: Yeah? Wow, Iíve heard a lot of kiss-off stories in my time, but that one -- that one's the lamest.

Greenlee: Kendall? Are you ok? Did you just go from fun drunk to sick drunk? Because if I have to clean up after you, I won't be happy.

Kendall: I have to go.

Greenlee: Whoa, no, no, no! Hold on! We were making plans, how to nail Jonathan into a 9 x 11 cell for drugging me.

Kendall: Let go of my purse!

Greenlee: Don't revert to type and make me hate you all over again. What happened to make you go all quiet and weird on me?

Ethan: Counselor.

Livia: Nice digs.

Ethan: Thank you. I'm moving up in the world.

Livia: Hmm.

Ethan: But I'm guessing you didn't come here to critique the decor.

Livia: No, we have a trial date, and I wanted you to see the witness list.

Ethan: My witness list or --

Livia: Yes, it's your defense.

Ethan: Ok. I'd rather go to jail.

Lily: There's nowhere left for me to move. The wall's in the way.

Jonathan: Well, then I guess you'll have to tell me the truth, won't you? Who sent you? Hmm? Was it Reggie? No? No? Was it Kendall? Kendall send you? Greenlee? She must be back to psycho to send some kid with some BS story about not being touched.

Lily: I'm not a kid. I'm 16 years, 272 days, and 17 hours old. And I told you, no one sent me. No one even knows I'm here.

Jonathan: Yeah? Well, then no one's going to mind if I do this.

Lily: No! No! No! Stop! No! No! No! No!

Jonathan: Ok, hey, wait! Wait, I didn't do anything! What's wrong with you?

Lily: 99, 98, 97, 96, 95 --

Jonathan: What the hell is up with you?

Lily: 93, 92, 91, 90 --

Jonathan: Hey, hey, hey, I didn't do anything. I didn't hit you.

Lily: 86, 85 --

Jonathan: I didn't hit you. If you tell somebody I hit you, it's a lie! I didn't touch you!

Lily: 82 -- the drugs! I have to find the drugs now! I'm on the case. I'm on the case. 86 --

Jonathan: There are no drugs here.

Lily: I have to look for them. 83, 82 --

Jonathan: Ok, knock yourself out. Ok.

Lily: 81 Ė

Kendall: Just back off, Greenlee.

Greenlee: I'm not letting go.

Kendall: Let me go home!

Greenlee: Not until you tell me what went wrong!

Kendall: Ow! Come on.

Greenlee: Hold on. How long was the waiting list for this beauty, or is it a knockoff?

Kendall: I have connections, all right? Now, Iíd like to go home now.

Greenlee: We were all warm and fuzzy and nicely lit-up, and then suddenly you turned into a Popsicle that's been in the freezer too long. What'd I say?

Kendall: Like I would listen to anything you say.

Greenlee: We were back in the day. We were -- we were sisters in crime-solving, sitting by the campfire singing "Kumbayah," and then suddenly I told you that I had to stop drinking because Ryan and I are going to make a baby. Oh, that's so off the Kendall radar. That can't count for anything. Or can it?

Kendall: You can't -- no, you can't trick me into being your friend again. You plied me with liquor, you made me laugh, and I almost fell for it. Now, please give this back to me. Please, it is one of a kind!

Greenlee: Wow, your connections need a major tune-up.

Kendall: Come on, Greenlee, just -- I'm sick of this. Give it back to me.

Erica: Hey, what's going on? Greenlee, let go of her! What did she do to you?

Greenlee: Good question. Answer it, Kendall.

Kendall: I'm done here. I got to go. Bye.

Greenlee: Well, your timing sucks, as usual.

Erica: Well, at least you're not behind the wheel of a car this time.

Greenlee: Will you drop that? Kendall has.

Erica: Well, Kendall may have forgotten what kind of a person you are, but I certainly have not, and I swear to you, if you ever try to hurt my daughter again, I will make certain that every sign of your miserable, pointless existence is erased from all of our lives forever.

Ethan: I'm not having Zach Slater and Ryan Lavery go on the stand in my defense.

Livia: Ethan, my job, which you pay me very handsomely for, is to spread reasonable doubt all over the courtroom. Now, the way I do that is by convincing a jury that there were other possible perpetrators with a reasonable motive and opportunity. I put Ryan Lavery, Zach Slater on the stand, I get you acquitted of all charges.

Ethan: I said no.

Livia: Oh, Johnnie Cochran, please give me strength. I thought we were home-free once we proved you were a real Cambias.

Ethan: What does that have to do with anything?

Livia: You're not a fraud! You're exactly who you claim to be. Your father was lying.

Ethan: Don't call him my father!

Livia: That makes you a sympathetic victim. Ryan can testify to that. Ryan can also testify to the fact that he and Greenlee were shot at while you were in the custody of the Pine Valley PD. Ryan was the muscle behind the DNA test --

Ethan: You know, I think we're done here, counselor.

Livia: That proved that you were a Cambias. Why would you want to kill him? But your father, on the other hand --

Ethan: Don't call him my father!

Livia: Ok, we'll call him the Easter bunny for all I care! Just give me a chance to put him on the stand and make him look guilty as hell!

Ethan: If you put Zach on the stand, he'll tell you that I took him down to the dump and pointed a gun in his face.

Livia: He'd be lying, right? I mean, I can get him on perjury. Please tell me that he will be lying.

Ethan: No, I'm sorry, counselor, but no lying will be necessary.

Livia: Ok, well, it would be his word against your word. It would just be he-said/he-said.

Ethan: There was a witness.

Livia: No. Don't tell me.

Ethan: Ryan Lavery.

Livia: Well, I hope you like sharing a cell with your new roommate Bubba because you just slammed the cell door behind you.

Jonathan: You missed a spot there.

Lily: There are no drugs on the table. Just five white candles, a tray, two small boxes, and three bowls.

Jonathan: Why did you bust into my place, hmm? Why are you turning my life upside down? I want to know who sent you here!

Lily: Nobody sent me.

Jonathan: You're lying.

Lily: I never lie.

Jonathan: Hey, everybody lies.

Aidan: Hey, you keep away from her.

Jonathan: You get your hands off me, man! What the hell's going on? I wouldn't touch her if I were you.

Aidan: Are you all right, Lily?

Lily: He didn't hit me. See? I never lie.

Aidan: What did you do to her?

Jonathan: I didn't do anything to her. She's a whack job. She barges in here, she accuses me of drugging my sister-in-law, and then she tells me she's going to search for evidence!

Aidan: Lily, you didn't, did you?

Lily: I'm on the case, Aidan.

Jonathan: Yeah, Aidan, whatever case she's on, she's got no badge, she's got no warrant, she's got no permit, or any training that I can tell of -- you know, and not to mention that your gears are stuck in permanent reverse.

Aidan: Come on, Lily. Let's go, shall we?

Jonathan: No, no, no. You're not going anywhere. This is when it's fun for me. I'm calling the cops.

Lily: Can they arrest him? I didn't find the evidence.

Jonathan: I've got illegal entry, Iíve got assault, and I'm sure the cops are going to come up with a couple more charges.

Ryan: Whoa, whoa, hey, hey, hey, Hockett, what -- what is going on in here? I think we can handle this without the cops, all right, man?

Bianca: Lily, what are you doing here? Are you ok?

Jonathan: I was the one barged in on. Why isn't anybody asking me if Iím ok?

Lily: I'm on the case.

Aidan: She's not supposed to be here, all right? She misunderstood something. She was never supposed to get involved.

Jonathan: I knew it. This whole thing was a setup.

Ryan: Why is Lily here, Aidan?

Lily: Don't be mad at Aidan. He was hired, but I wasn't. It was all my idea. I just wanted to help him get the goods on Jonathan for drugging my sister, Greenlee. Isn't that right, Aidan?

Greenlee: I'd offer to buy you a club soda, but I don't plan to stay here and watch you drink it.

Erica: I haven't excused you for anything.

Greenlee: Oh. I know that look. You're ready to run to my father to rat me out for my sins, real or not.

Erica: And wouldn't you just love that. Isn't that what you want, so you can just go whining to Daddy about how cruel I was to you, how I bruised your very fragile little ego, how I erased your self-esteem from your hard drive?

Greenlee: I have a better idea. I won't tell if you don't tell.

Erica: You're saying that you think that we could actually agree to let the next few minutes be off the record?

Greenlee: Done. A Jackson-free zone. Self-righteous toad.

Erica: Hateful piece of cheap baggage. Ok. What did you do to make my daughter look so unhappy?

Greenlee: Nothing.

Erica: Liar.

Greenlee: Schemer.

Erica: Brat. Look, Kendall has turned a corner in her life. She is finally trying to make some sense of it. And if you have done anything to derail --

Greenlee: You want to know my sin? I was trying to rebuild the friendship that Kendall and I used to have.

Erica: What did you do, Greenlee?

Greenlee: We were talking, we were having a great time, and then suddenly the lights went out, like someone hit a switch and no one was home. I don't know why. I was totally wonderful.

Erica: Oh, why do I bother to ask? You always make yourself sound like Sister Mary Bernadette of the Holy Rosary.

Greenlee: As if you'd know.

Erica: Think, Greenlee. I mean, try to think really hard and maybe you will actually remember the little oops that sent Kendall spiraling out of here.

Greenlee: We fought over the bill. She said we should do this again. I said my drinking days are numbered once I get pregnant.

Erica: What?

Greenlee: Well, actually, what I said was Ryan and I were trying to make a baby.

Erica: Oh! Are you completely recovered? Is this a relapse?

Greenlee: As much as Iíd love to believe Iím hallucinating you, I know I'm not.

Erica: Ah. Then you are just a mean-spirited, nasty, unfeeling snot.

Greenlee: Over the line, Erica.

Erica: Well, how else would you explain this terribly hurtful thing you said to Kendall?

Greenlee: Oh, my God. That's what it was.

Jonathan: Did you know your wife and her new buddy Kendall sicced a private investigator on me?

Ryan: Of course I didn't know that, and I can guarantee you that Greenlee had nothing to do with this.

Jonathan: You sure about that?

Ryan: Yes, Iím sure. I know my wife. I told her you had nothing to do with her being drugged, and she believes me, ok?

Jonathan: Then how did James Bond and Junior G-girl end up in here?

Ryan: Aidan, who hired you?

Aidan: You know I can't tell you that.

Bianca: Who hired him isn't nearly as important as why.

Ryan: It's got to be Kendall. Am I right? It's Kendall. Man, she doesn't give up! She's convinced that my brother's guilty, so she, what, she just spreads her paranoia wherever she goes?

Bianca: Maybe she's not paranoid. Maybe she's right.

Jonathan: Stop trying to get between my brother and his family and his screwed-up friends, ok? It's not fair to him and it's not fair to me!

Ryan: Hey, hey, hey, take it easy, Hockett. Nobody's making me do anything, all right?

Bianca: Where's Maggie?

Jonathan: You know, I am tired of being attacked by people who don't even know me!

Aidan: Maybe you're the one attacking people.

Ryan: Hey, Aidan, back off.

Aidan: Hey, don't assume you know what's going on here, Ryan.

Ryan: That's what I'm doing! I'm trying to find out what's going on!

Bianca: Where is Maggie?

Jonathan: Butt out, Bianca! How about that, ok? Maggie's my business! She's not yours!

Ryan: Ok, Hockett, take it easy. Bianca's just concerned for her friend, all right?

Bianca: Don't make excuses for me, Ryan.

Jonathan: No, I want you all to get out of here right now!

Ryan: No, I'm not leaving here until you and I talk about this. You got to calm down!

Jonathan: There's nothing to talk about, Ryan!

Bianca: Where is Maggie?

Aidan: Answer her, Jonathan. Where is Maggie?

Maggie: I'm right here.

Bianca: Thank God you're all right.

Maggie: Of course I am. What is going on?

Bianca: Ryan is here to help. I can't let you do this, and I can't seem to get through to you on my own.

Maggie: Jonathan? Talk to me. What's going on?

Jonathan: I'm so sorry, ok? Bianca and her sister have been spreading stories again, this time to Ryan and Aidan. So please tell them what they want to hear. Did I or didn't I hit you? Just say what you need to say, ok, and we'll all live with it.

Maggie: Look at me. Do I look like Iíve been battered and beaten? I don't think so.

Jonathan: I think you look like a beautiful bride.

Maggie: I love Jonathan. We are getting married tonight. Do not try to ruin our happiness.

Bianca: Maggie, please --

Maggie: You are the worst of them, to come in here and trash him, and now you're going to come in here with a posse, including his own brother. What are you trying to do to me?

Bianca: I know what I saw and what I heard.

Jonathan: Bianca, just give up on this, ok?

Aidan: Let's go, shall we, Lily, right now?

Maggie: I told you I was fine and to leave me alone.

Jonathan: Whatever you think you heard you misunderstood.

Maggie: Stop putting your nose in where it doesn't belong.

Bianca: How can I leave you alone? How can I do that? I don't want you to get hurt again.

Jonathan: How much of this am I supposed to take?

Maggie: Ok, stop it.

Ryan: Ok, everybody stop. All right, this isn't getting anything settled. You got to come with me because we got to talk.

Jonathan: I am so sorry our special day got ruined.

Maggie: It's ok.

Jonathan: I'll make it up to you, I promise, ok?

Bianca: Please stop.

Maggie: Come here. I love you.

Jonathan: I love you, too.

Maggie: I love you. Everything's going to be ok.

Jonathan: Ok.

Maggie: Ok?

Jonathan: Bye.

Maggie: Bye.

[Door closes]

Maggie: I want you to leave now.

Bianca: If you want me to leave, you're going to have to throw me out or call the police.

Ethan: And then Ryan showed up and ruined what otherwise had been a very constructive afternoon.

Livia: Ethan, your father betrayed you. You're very angry and you're very hurt. You never meant to cause him any harm. I know Ryan and Zach realize that.

Ethan: Unfortunately, counselor, I went out and bought a brand-new, big, shiny rifle, put it right in Zachís face, put my finger on the trigger. I'm sorry to blow your defense to bits, but to be quite honest, I really would much rather Iíd had the chance to blow his head off.

Livia: Ethan, I have never heard you speak this way.

Ethan: Well, get used to it.

Livia: I've seen higher fliers than you crash and burn. What goes up always comes down.

Ethan: Ok, counselor, listen -- you worry about my case, Iíll worry about gravity. How about that?

Livia: Well, promise me that you won't go pointing any rifles in anybody's face in the meantime? I'm running out of options.

Ethan: You'll think of something. You're quite the brilliant counselor, you know. Listen, why don't you -- why don't you bill yourself at triple your rate.

Livia: Definitely.

Ethan: Ok. And I'll see you shortly, counselor.

Anita: Hey, Kendall.

Kendall: Hey.

Anita: Just watching the baby for Bianca. She had somewhere she had to go.

Kendall: Actually, I'm not here for Bianca. I just wanted a dose of Miranda.

Anita: Well, there she is, the little night owl. I was just about to try to put her back down.

Kendall: Oh, no, no, let her stay up for a while. God, she is so beautiful, isn't she?

Anita: Oh, she's gorgeous.

Kendall: Hey. Ooh! Ooh! Here, sweet thing. Hey, sweet thing. Yeah. You practicing staying up late to go clubbing with Auntie Kendall, are you? Are you? Oh, wow. You, my friend, you really are the answer. You're feeling crummy, you come in here and get a look at your sweet little face. Yes, your sweet little face! You're having a bad day, just pat your sweet little head and it all goes away. It does. My goodness. You are the good mood in a bad day. Hey, you spread the joy, baby girl.

Anita: Are you ok?

Kendall: I'm better by the second.

Miranda: Ah.

Kendall: Hmm. Listen, Anita, if you want to go, I can stay here and watch her until my sister gets home.

Anita: You're sure? Yeah, I have a ton of things I can get to.

Kendall: I'm sure Bianca wouldn't mind.

Anita: Ah, aunts take seniority over girlfriends any day. Now, you be good with Kendall like you were for me, ok? Good night, you two.

Kendall: Good night.

Anita: Bye!

Kendall: Hey, sweetness. Hey, sweetness. Oh, she went bye-bye. Hey. I love you.

[Miranda coos]

Kendall: Yeah, I love you, baby.

Aidan: You know, confidentiality means that when a client hires me that I have to keep it a secret. You got to understand that everything that you hear in this office is a secret, also. It's confidential.

Lily: But secrets are hard for me because sometimes I say things I shouldn't because I don't know I shouldn't say them. But my dad and my tutor are helping me. But there are always new things. Like tonight. I told Jonathan we were investigating him, which I shouldn't have done. But I'll work on it. I'll put in my schedule, and I'll take time. I'll be a good partner.

Aidan: Oh, Lily, I think you're missing my point. I'm not trying to teach you to become a better detective. I'm just trying to say that I don't think it's a good idea that we work together.

Lily: But I know a lot of teenagers that work. Dani works at Fusion, and I helped you solve the puzzle.

Aidan: You did, and you did a great job, and I really appreciate that. But my kind of work is very specialized and it can be very dangerous. More importantly, I don't want anything to ever happen to you. I mean, you can't just go up and confront someone. I'm sorry, Lily, but you can't be my partner anymore. It's just not going to work.

Lily: I know I let you down. I'm so sorry.

Aidan: Listen, it's not about letting me down. Please don't be upset.

Jonathan: You have no idea what it's like when your brother's the head honcho. I show up in Pine Valley out of nowhere and you set me up to be your number two. Now, half the people think the only reason I got that job is because you pulled the strings. The other half are using me as direct access to you. Man, I was flying with the eagles. I didn't know who to trust. I needed something big, something powerful to keep my feet on the ground, and that was Maggie, someone who loves me for me, someone to whom I don't have to prove anything. Now, I understand why people in this town want to beat me down, but to accuse me of hurting the best thing in my life?

Ryan: Ok, stop. You're all Irish right now, Jonathan, and I know where you get your way with words, but right now I need you to be 100% honest with me.

Jonathan: You want the truth? I love Maggie more than Iíve loved any woman in my entire life. I didn't know how to love until I met her.

Ryan: We didn't exactly have healthy, loving role models growing up, did we?

Jonathan: No, we didn't, did we? We learned one messy, screwed-up relationship at a time, right? "Is this how it works?" "No." "Ok, Iíll pick up the pieces and I'll try again." But this time, I figured it out, Ryan. Maggie taught me how to be vulnerable without being afraid, how to -- how to give without expecting, without demanding something in return. I've hit the jackpot this time, man, and Iíve earned it. I deserved it. And I'm not going to let some jealous lesbian take it away from me!

Bianca: Hypothetical situation. Remember how we used to play that game? Let's say I'm still with Lena and you see her slap me across the face hard. What do you do?

Maggie: Better hypothetical -- what if I don't see Lena hit you?

Bianca: Ok. How about I'm sporting a really mean bruise. You would go mental on Lena, and you know it. It's a beautiful color on you.

Bianca: Another hypothetical. Close your eyes and try to picture my mother and Uncle Jack.

Maggie: You know, I don't have time for games right now.

Bianca: This is important. Try to picture it. Jackson Montgomery hauls off and slugs Erica Kane, uses her as a punching bag.

Maggie: Never happen.

Bianca: Exactly. It would never happen because there is nothing on this earth that would make my Uncle Jack hit my mother or any woman, no matter -- ok, try this one. Reggie flies into a rage and throws Dani against the wall, maybe he breaks her arm. I mean, he didn't mean it. He just lost his temper. Or Ryan? He has one too many and slugs Greenlee in the jaw?

Maggie: Stop it!

Bianca: It would never happen. You can't picture it, can you? None of those women will ever have to hide bruises from their friends or their family. But your situation is different, isn't it, from all those other couples because you can actually imagine getting socked in the jaw by Jonathan, can't you? This has to be terrifying. You think that you found someone, the guy for you, but you're in way over your head. This is an impossible situation. You cannot fix it by pretending that it didn't happen or acting like it's never going to happen again. If you ignore it, you're only going to dig yourself in deeper. And I know you know it's true. Deep down, somewhere in your heart, I know you're hearing me.

Erica: You were celebrating Kendallís broken heart.

Greenlee: That is so off the mark. Kendall has Ethan.

Erica: That is a tragic headline waiting to happen. You stay far away from my daughter. Do not have a conversation with her about anything ever, and I will advise her to do the same thing. You two are like matter and anti-matter, and every time you meet it's like mass destruction, so don't do it anymore!

Greenlee: How did this turn into all my fault?

Erica: You listen to me -- I have done everything I know how to cut you some slack because I love your father so much. I am doing my very best not to make you a deal-breaker.

Greenlee: Hold on, hold on. You don't get props for standing up for Kendall. You thought she drugged me, too.

Erica: Only for a minute, and only because I understood all too well why she'd be tempted. God knows it's taking every fiber of my willpower just to let you breathe.

Greenlee: One more. Or two. Or three. Ethan! Could you sit so your eyes are in my universe?

Ethan: How could I resist an invitation like that?

Greenlee: So tell me, do you have plans to destroy Kendall?

Aidan: I'm sorry. Sorry. I didn't mean to touch you.

Lily: I don't know how to say what I want to say.

Aidan: You know, we've both had a hard day. We're both on overload. How about we talk about this another time?

Lily: Can you do it again?

Aidan: Do what?

Lily: What you did. Touch my arm.

Aidan: Are you sure?

Lily: It doesn't hurt.

Aidan: Really?

Lily: Not even a little. Do you know what this means?

Aidan: Uh, no, I really don't.

Lily: It means we were meant to be boyfriend and girlfriend! We couldn't touch each other, but now we can! Reggie and Dani touch each other in a lot of different places, but I don't think I'm ready for that. But after tonight, I think we can work on it. Don't you?

Aidan: You know, Lily, our kind of friendship, I think it's great --

Lily: That's what we'll do! I'll make time on my schedule! Bye, Aidan!

Aidan: Help!

Erica: Listen, I'm not going to waste any time. I know why you're upset, and I understand.

Kendall: Mother, I'm not upset.

Erica: It's Ryan and Greenlee, isn't it? Their marriage is bliss and they're planning a baby, and that has you spinning. Don't even try to deny it.

Kendall: Mother, I told you I'm over Ryan. I'm done with him. Ok, I don't care who he procreates with as long as it isn't me. I don't have a maternal bone in my body.

Erica: Then why are you here? And why did I know you'd be here? Because I'm right, that's why.

Kendall: Well, it's not like I sat and thought about it. I just -- I wanted to be with Miranda.

Erica: Exactly.

Kendall: No, but, Mother, I told you Iím done with Ryan. I've moved on. Ethan and I, we're doing great. So whatever Ryan or Greenlee say or do, it shouldn't have any effect on me at all.

Erica: But it does, sweetheart. It does, doesn't it?

Kendall: I turn to water on the inside and fire on the outside. But -- but Iím over him.

Erica: Yes. Juliet got over Romeo, too, in her extreme way. Oh, honey, great love -- I mean, that takes years to get over, if you ever do. Look at Jack and me. Great love just takes hold of your heart. And even though you break up, that love remains, even though you try to erase it, you try to deny it.

Kendall: Oh, God. No, don't -- don't tell me that Iím doomed to love Ryan forever.

Erica: No. No, no, no, of course not. But right now, right this minute, you have to be very careful of rebound romance, of ricochet heartbreak.

Kendall: Meaning?

Erica: Meaning, Kendall, I want you to use that brilliant mind of yours and not your vulnerable heart. Ethan is a complete mess over his father, and you are still emotionally entangled with Ryan. This is not a formula for grand romance. This is a formula for major disaster.

Ethan: Destroying Kendall is not on my to-do list, and why would you care if it were?

Greenlee: I don't want you to destroy Kendall.

Ethan: Is this part of some 12-step program? I mean, are you trying to make amends for all the people whose lives you screwed over? Is it Bitches Anonymous?

Greenlee: Fine. You want amends, you got them. I'm sorry I suspected Kendall of poisoning me. I'm sorry that I accused her at all. But Ryan and I have left some scars on Kendall, and some of them are still pretty raw. Someone could open them up very easily.

Ethan: Someone like me, you mean?

Greenlee: You have great heartache potential.

Ethan: So, what you're saying is that you would like me not to hurt Kendall quite as much or in the same way that you hurt Kendall?

Greenlee: It sounds crummy when you say it. It sounded better when I thought it. But however it sounds, I mean it. Don't hurt Kendall at all.

Ethan: You know, I think -- I think I'm having this chat with the wrong lady, so if you'll excuse me.

Maggie: Jonathan loves me, Bianca. He really, really loves me.

Bianca: Look at what he does, not what he says.

Maggie: You're not around us. You don't know how we are together.

Bianca: You changed your hair, you changed your clothes.

Maggie: I needed a new look.

Bianca: It's not love. Maggie, that's control. I heard him. He wants to hold on to you so tight that you can't even breathe, let alone be who you want to be.

Maggie: Maybe you're the one who wants to control me.

Bianca: I just want you to be happy, and I don't see it anymore. Even your smile is different.

Maggie: If Jonathan lost his temper, it was my fault.

Bianca: That's a sign of abuse. He gets you to feel like you're responsible for what he does.

Maggie: I'm not easy to live with. You've lived with me before. I -- I could drive a person --

Bianca: What, to hit you? Is that right? Ok. So you get mad. You tell Jonathan how ticked off you are. He wants to duck it. You want to talk about it. So, what? He gets to turn on you and whack you across the face? No. Uh-uh, no way. There is no justification for that ever, no matter what you did. How sorry was he, Maggie? How many times did he swear to you it was never going to happen again? Did he bring you flowers, or was it jewelry? Yeah. I read about this. It even has a name. It's called the honeymoon phase. And when the honeymoon is over, the abuse starts all over again, and again and again. Please, talk to me. Please open your heart to me. Let me be a friend to you, the way you were always a friend to me.

Maggie: Maybe Jonathan just doesn't love me. Maybe I'm just not lovable.

Jonathan: Maggie's been going nuts. Every time she turns around, there's Bianca saying, "You should break up with him. Jonathan's no good." Ok, it's been making me go pretty crazy, too, so if I wasn't politically correct just then, sorry.

Ryan: I know Bianca even better than I know you, Jonathan. I don't think she's out to get you. I don't think this is about jealousy.

Jonathan: Maybe you're too close to her, you know? Maybe I can see her more objectively than you can. She wants Maggie. She'll do anything to get her.

Ryan: No. No, Jonathan, you can say that about Kendall, you can say that about a lot of people, but not Bianca. She's just not wired that way. She's the most unselfish person that I have ever met. Jonathan, did you ever hit Maggie?

Jonathan: You're going to tell me that you've never gotten into a fight with Greenlee? We're passionate people. Sometimes you raise your voice! Sometimes you even throw things!

Ryan: I asked if you hit her!

Jonathan: Didn't you hear her at the house? She said --

Ryan: Shut! It's just you and me here. I need you to answer my question! Did you ever hit Maggie?

Jonathan: Yeah. Yeah, I did.

Erica: I want you to be happy. I want you to enjoy your life and I want you to let your head rule your heart for a change. I've never managed to do that, but maybe you'll have better luck.

Aidan: It was only supposed to be harmless hanging out, solving puzzles, and then she wants to go to play detective, and now this.

Anita: Oh, Aidan, it's my fault. I'm the one that got you into this. You know what, Iíll go talk to Lily and help her figure out what's what.

Aidan: Well, I'd rather you than me because I really don't know what to say and I don't want to hurt her feelings.

Anita: You know, I haven't met many men like you.

Aidan: Well, I haven't met many women like you.

Ethan: Hey.

Kendall: Hi.

Ethan: You know, if you hadn't called me, I was just about to call you. What's the big emergency?

Kendall: I still love Ryan.

Jonathan: Guess your next question's going to be did I drug Greenlee.

Ryan: You told me you didn't. Was I wrong to believe you? Do I need to ask you that question?

Bianca: Don't you ever say that again ever. You are lovable.

Maggie: But if -- if what you're saying is true and if Jonathan doesn't love me --

Bianca: Oh, would you listen to yourself? Look at what he's making you feel about yourself. You are smart and -- and beautiful and funny and strong. You were my rock. You remember that? There was a time I didn't know how to put one foot in front of the other, and you showed me how. I cherish every single part of you. You are extremely, beautifully lovable.

Maggie: You love me as a friend. You love me just as a friend.

Bianca: No. It's so much more than that.

[Bianca tenderly kisses Maggie]

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

Kendall: Iíve totally screwed us up, haven't I?

Ethan: Did you want to screw us up?

Anita: Stay away from me.

Ryan: You're not going to Vegas. You're not going to marry Maggie, not until you've dealt with this.

Bianca: I think Iím falling in love with you.
