All My Children Transcript Monday 4/4/05
Proofread by Gisele
David's voice: Babe, all I have to do is tell Adam where Colby is and immediately you have more time with little Adam.
Babe's voice: A deal with a
David's voice: Not this time. Babe, don't look at me like that. I'm doing this for you and for your son.
Babe: Ugh, God!
Babe: Oh, my God, are you ok? Come here. Oh, come here.
Jamie: Oh. Yeah, I'm good. Luckily, my head's harder than the pipe. What's wrong?
Babe: My dad. I mean, how could he trick Lizaís number out of me?
Jamie: You know, Babe, I didn't discuss this much out of respect of your feelings, but let me tell you a little something about your father, about what he did to my family and what happened when he became obsessed with Dixie.
David: It's a simple question. Who are you?
Di: Why should I tell you? I don't know you from a hole in the wall.
David: The name's David Hayward. I'm a friend of Krystal's.
Di: Congratulations. Now, what do you want from me? Hey. God, what's wrong with you?
David: Look, I'm -- I'm sorry. It's just you really remind me of someone I used to know.
J.R.: You like something to drink, Ethan?
Ethan: Yeah, stronger the better.
J.R.: It's a little late for
a business meeting, but I could use the distraction. It must be pretty important
if you bagged a whole evening with
Jonathan: Give me the phone.
Jonathan: This is a real
Jonathan: Just shut up,
Jonathan: I think I'm about to shoot you.
Greenlee: Oh, Jonathan. Lily? We're going to have to figure out a way out of here.
Lily: I don't understand.
Greenlee: What part don't you understand?
Lily: Jonathan says that Braden is the bad guy. Where's Braden?
Ryan: All right, Braden, let's see what you have for us now.
Zach: It's all right, boys. Come on out. Don't shoot, it's only me.
Tad: Well, look who's free again. Guess they'd let anybody out.
Ryan: What are you doing here?
Zach: Rumor has it your
rapist brother has you guys running around in circles, so I thought Iíd come and
see if I could help. My men have been trailing you ever since you left
Ryan: And you get off on this, like this is fun for you? You admit to crimes that you didn't commit, and then you watch us try and undo all the damage that you caused?
Zach: And you don't think your big brother's to blame for any of this?
Tad: What do you want, Zach?
Zach: I told you -- Braden Lavery.
Ethan: My father's got
J.R.: Please, take a seat.
Ethan: Thank you.
J.R.: If you're asking me to recommend a hit man, then --
Ethan: No. No, no, no, not a hit man. I just need to make sure I can stay a couple of steps ahead of him.
J.R.: And how exactly am I supposed to help you?
Ethan: Well, this is your
area of expertise, J.R. Everybody in this town knows
nobody wields a velvet dagger quite so skillfully as the
J.R.: Well, when it comes to
getting what we want, the
Ethan: My father is going to do whatever it takes to get out of paying for what he did.
J.R.: You're talking about the murder, right?
Ethan: The question is, what would you do? Listen, I understand the situation with your father and my father are very different.
J.R.: Huh, you want to trade dads for a day?
Ethan: Put yourself in my position. Your integrity's called into question, your reputation is on the line. Wouldn't you want to see justice done?
J.R.: You're in luck, Ethan. I think I can help you out here. In fact, I owe you one. You helped me get my son back. But in the spirit of cooperation, I want something in return.
Ethan: Name it.
J.R.: Your father's not the only one that needs to be put in his place.
Jamie: When your father gets fixated on something, he's a bulldozer. He'll mow down anything in his path. Right now, it's all about your happiness. That's where his energy's focused.
Babe: Mama's protective, but David, he's just --
Jamie: It wouldn't be so bad if he were anybody else than David Hayward. Your father has a -- well, a unique way of getting what he wants.
Babe: But doesn't he understand that Liza and Colby, they're on our side? They're the ones that saved our hides when we were on the run.
Jamie: They're totally expendable in his eyes, especially if he can sacrifice them to save you.
Babe: No, no, I -- no, I cannot imagine Daddy being that cold-hearted.
Jamie: No, believe it. He plowed through my entire family the minute he got
the hots for my stepmother. He drugged a boatload of people and nearly killed
one. None of us were ever the same after that. My dad, J.R., me -- he left us
all eating his dust. He'd still be at it if
David: Krystal told me about you, Di. She said that you were the one person that's been kind to her in here.
Di: I hate what Krystal did
David: Yeah, well, she's a tough cookie.
David: But this place redefines "tough."
David: So thank you. I can't do anything for her while she's in here, so it's nice to know that she has someone on her side.
Di: You her boyfriend?
David: Uh, we have a daughter together.
Di: You could still be her boyfriend.
David: We're just friends, like you.
Di: Well, sorry. Krystal's going to be on her own soon. I get out of here anytime now, so -- all right, you cut that out right now. You understand me?
Di: Quit looking at me like that. You're -- you're creeping me out.
David: Look, I'm sorry. It's just --
Di: Yeah, I know, I know -- I remind you of someone.
David: Yeah, very much. Do I seem familiar to you at all?
Di: When you stare at me like that, you do -- a man I trusted once who cost me a ton. So knock it off.
David: Is that better?
Di: Not much, but less creepy, I guess.
David: Good. I'm definitely going for less creepy. Does the name Tad Martin mean anything to you?
Di: Matter of fact, it does.
Tad: So all of a sudden,
you're set on saving
Zach: I've had my people looking for him way before you two.
Ryan: Is that before or after you started confessing to things?
Zach: At the police station, when we sat and talked, that's when I heard that your brother was a suspect, and that's when I started my search for the elusive Lavery.
Tad: Hmm. Did you ever stop to think if you had said something back then, like mentioned the fact that you lied about committing all Braden's crimes, we would've found him by now?
Ryan: No, that's not the way he works. He wants me to suffer. She wants me to lose sleep at night.
Zach: Why do you think that everything's about you?
Ryan: This is about me. This is my family, and you know that. Why else would you keep quiet?
Zach: Ok. I didn't know how you were going to react. I didn't know if you were going to go after him, if you were going to warn him. And how would I? I mean, what do I know about having a brother and hating everything that he's done and still loving the man for who he was?
Tad: Ok, fair enough. So you confessed to all Braden's crimes, then you send your men out to find him. Where's the rationale in that? Hmm? You want to be the big shot that finds him or do you just want him killed?
Zach: I want to find him so he doesn't hurt anybody else.
Jonathan: I'm not going to
Jonathan: You're as stupid as you are annoying.
Jonathan: Technology. It's amazing. I'm checking your recent calls. That's what I thought. You didn't make any.
Greenlee: Listen to that pen scratching away. You're really going to town over here.
Lily: I'm logging in all the facts of the case.
Greenlee: Good thinking. Focus on that.
Lily: Once we have all the data collected and sorted, we can know what we're really dealing with here.
Greenlee: Took the words right out of my mouth. You just keep on writing, ok? I'm going to be right over here. Right over here, quietly panicking to myself. Ok, think, think, think, think. Oh. Oh, that smell. It's nauseating. How many days did I smell that in the mineshaft? No, don't go there, Greenlee, don't go there. You're not in that hole anymore. You're just in a bigger, danker, nastier, stinkier hole. I'm going to get out of it.
Lily: Stop! Stop it! Stop! Stop! Stop!
Greenlee: It's ok. Lily, I stopped, I stopped.
Greenlee: No, it's quiet again! Listen!
Lily: No! No!
Greenlee: Come on, let's count. Let's do square roots!
Lily: No, I don't want to!
Greenlee: Square root of 500?
Lily: No. No.
Greenlee: Ok, work with me. I suck at math. Square root of 500 is --
Lily: No, no.
Greenlee: Ok, ok, you're working on the case, the case.
Greenlee: The gate, the bars! How many bars are right there?
Greenlee: Ok, good. How many rivets are on that cart?
Greenlee: Excellent. You want to do some more?
Lily: No, I want to get out of here!
Greenlee: Me, too.
Lily: The noise stopped.
Greenlee: I'm sorry I startled you. It's just this isn't a good situation that we're in, ok, you know?
Lily: Yeah, I know.
Greenlee: So you know what's happened to us, what we have to do?
Lily: We take the bad guy to the police.
Greenlee: Right. Eventually, that is the plan, but right now we got to get out of here, and Jonathan, who doesn't have all of his corn flakes in one box, has left us in here and locked us in. Ok. Forget the corn flake analogy. Let's -- let's do it like we're solving a math problem. What do you call it? A proof?
Greenlee: Ok. You know our goal is to get to the police, right?
Greenlee: And we know some of the factors. One, we're in this stinky cave, and, two, this gate is locked and we can't get out. Therefore, we have to --
Lily: You said "therefore." You're supposed to say "QED" now. After you've presented all your proof, you say "QED."
Greenlee: All right, then, QED, we have to do whatever it takes to get out of this place, which includes banging on bars and making loud noises. You get me? Ok? So put your hands over your ears and sing "The Star-Spangled Banner," count Erica's ex-husbands by threes -- I don't care -- but you've got to let me bang on that gate without freaking out, ok?
Lily: Yeah, I'll try.
Lily: O say, can you see
Greenlee: Great. Great.
Lily: By the dawn's early light
Jonathan: You done?
Jonathan: I know, I know. Thank you for the heads-up.
Jonathan: You live to hurt my brother! And you're doing it -- you're doing it again right now by trying to ruin this plan.
Jonathan: Shut up! Shut up, Kend-- I've been working really hard on my anger issues. I have. I really don't want to have to hit you right now.
Jonathan: But I do have to figure out something to do with you.
Jonathan: No. But Braden would.
Ethan: I thought you and Adam were thick as thieves.
J.R.: My father's become a liability. He's proven on more than one occasion that he can't be trusted. It's only a matter of time before he feels threatened and chooses to sell me out completely.
Ethan: Maybe you'd rather have had a father who denied you.
J.R.: That's all right, I can handle him.
Ethan: When did you and Adam fall out?
J.R.: See, that's just it. He's still the same man who tried to destroy my mother.
Di: I don't know Tad Martin personally.
David: But you do know him?
Di: I know the name. He's a friend of Krystal's, right?
David: Yeah, some friend. He treated her like garbage. He fell for her, landed her, and then he turned on her. In fact, he's the main reason why she's even in here.
Di: Funny -- the way she talks, he seems sort of sweet.
David: Hmm, she's delusional when it comes to Martin.
Di: That a fact? So let me get this straight -- you came down here to thank me for being nice to your daughter's mom. You've set me straight on her boyfriend, or whatever he is. Is there anything else you need to get off your chest, or can we call it a night here? There you go again with the creepy. I'm out of here.
David: No, no, no, wait, wait, wait, please. That scar -- how did you get that?
Di: I was in a car accident.
David: A car accident?
Di: Nasty one.
David: Well, where? What -- what happened?
Di: I don't like to talk about it.
David: But it was serious?
Di: I nearly died. Ok?
David: Do you have any children?
Di: All right! That's it. You tell me what you want with all these personal questions or this visit is over.
Babe: I want to be close to my dad, Jamie. I mean, Mama, she -- she was my rock my entire life, and now with her locked away -- it's just things aren't the same. And my baby's as good as locked away. I need my father.
Jamie: And I get that. You can be close to him, but you can't trust him.
Babe: No. No, I'm not going to live like that. Think about it. That's how J.R. lives. He barely even trusts Adam, and my son is being raised the exact same way. He's not going to even trust anyone in his house. I'm not going to set that same example for little Adam.
Jamie: Whenever your son is with you, he'll know there's people he can trust, especially his mom and me.
Babe: Any chance 7,000 DNA tests later you could still turn out to be his father?
Jamie: Not likely.
Babe: I just hate that you can't see him, you can't be a part of his life.
Jamie: Hey, we're going to find a way, and it'll be the opposite of J.R. Our way won't hurt anyone else.
Ryan: So go out there, find your men, and you call them off.
Zach: What are you afraid
of, Ryan? That
Tad: Be smart -- leave.
Zach: Michael's dead. Braden ought to be.
Ryan: I'm sorry, was that a threat?
Zach: Threat? No. From me? No, I'm not a killer. But I would like to see you suffer for what you did to my son.
Ryan: Oh. Well, the father makes the son. So if you don't like the man that Ethan's become, you only have yourself to blame.
Zach: Mm-hmm. What about old man Lavery? Same?
Ryan: Yeah, it was the same. He made my brothers and me exactly what we are.
Tad: Enough of this. What is this about? What are you doing? What, you're riding to the rescue of the cavalry at the last minute? Who you trying to impress, Maria?
Zach: Leave her out of this.
Tad: Because if you are, you're wasting your time. She's lost to you. See, maybe you didn't take a shovel to Edmund's head, but you killed her marriage, destroyed her family. As far as I'm concerned, you're not a killer, but you're guilty.
J.R.: What it boils down to here, Ethan, is your word against Zachís.
Ethan: And Lily Montgomery's, apparently.
J.R.: You think Jack will put his daughter on the stand? The DA will eat her alive. Hell, you put a red tie on, you got a freak show in the courtroom. Now, if you want to tip things into your favor, you need corroboration. You need yourself a jailhouse snitch.
Ethan: You make it sound like they're lining up.
J.R.: They probably are. Zach spent a fair amount of time behind lockup. There has to be a parade of prisoners coming and going out of the other cells, and one, if not all of them, is looking to score quick cash.
Ethan: I'm supposed to trust some thug off the street to help me bring down my father?
J.R.: All you have to do is have them testify that Zach was bragging about the murder behind bars. You get him to corroborate and your father's fate is sealed.
Ethan: All right. I buy it. But it presents one more problem. I don't think my father's going to be going back on his word. He's going to try and overturn my grandfather's estate. That means that him and his lawyers are going to be going through every single Cambias account there is, offshore, onshore -- doesn't make a difference -- and if they see a payment to a snitch --
J.R.: See, that's where I come in. I'm an employee. Do you think they're really going to be suspicious about a substantial bonus payoff to me? Right? I take the money, I handle the payoff, problem solved.
Ethan: You have earned a bonus, J.R.
J.R.: Not completely. I don't think I'm going to be able to help you with
Lily: Are you finished?
Greenlee: Yeah, finished.
Lily: Didn't work. We're still locked in this cave.
Greenlee: Not for long. I'm
going to figure out a way to get out of this place.
Jonathan: Sit down. Sit.
Greenlee: Way to save the day.
Greenlee: Way to go,
Lily: We have to be prisoners in here so that Ryan doesn't get killed.
Greenlee: You see? Lily gets it! Isn't that so typical? I mean, you do everything you can to save Ryan, even taking a knife in the gut, and then Kendall shows up to ruin everything again.
Jonathan: You really get it now, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Yes. I could do without the gun and the coal mine, but if I have to call this place home for a few days just to keep Ryan safe, I'm in.
Jonathan: Yes. That's it. It's however Braden wants it. This is his plan.
Lily: We have a plan, too.
Greenlee: Lily --
Lily: We have to go to the police, but that gate is locked and in our way, QED, we have to open it somehow and escape. Isn't that right, Greenlee? Isn't that our plan? But now you're here, Jonathan, and you know the combination, so if you would please give it to us, we could unlock the gate and go call the police. We won't have to make any scary crashing noises or anything --
Jonathan: Shut up, Lily!
Greenlee: Back off, Jonathan.
Jonathan: You back off! You're as full of it as the rest of them. Greenlee, I thought you were on Ryan's side.
Greenlee: I am on his side, but you don't have to go all postal on Lily.
Jonathan: She blew your cover.
Greenlee: There is nothing to cover. She's obsessed with whodunits. She pulls them out of thin air. You read mysteries all the time, don't you, Lily?
Lily: Yeah, right now I'm reading "The Killing Club," by Marcie Walsh. It had a red cover on it, so Reggie had to make another one. It's about --
Jonathan: I don't care about --
Greenlee: Thank you, Lily.
Lily: You're welcome.
Greenlee: Come on, Jonathan. I know what we're dealing with here. Be realistic. You think I'm going to stop you from trying to help Ryan?
Jonathan: I hope not.
Greenlee: No way. I love him, too.
Greenlee: Open your eyes. Jonathan only has Ryan's best interests at heart.
Greenlee: You idiot, don't you see? He's got to follow Braden's orders to prove that he's on Braden's side, but then once the time is right, he's going to turn the tables on Braden to save Ryan, right?
Jonathan: Yes, yes, unless one of you messes everything up.
Greenlee: I, for one, really appreciate what you're doing, Jonathan. I know that we've had our differences, but I think Ryan would be proud of the way you're handling this.
Jonathan: I hope -- I hope so, because I'm tired of disappointing everyone, Ryan especially.
Greenlee: I think that you should let him know what you're doing for him. It would make him feel better.
Jonathan: You think so?
Greenlee: I know so. Why don't you call him, let him know what you're doing, fill him in?
Jonathan: The only person I need to be calling right now is Braden to let him know everything's cool.
Greenlee: Wait. Ryan --
Jonathan: It's the only way to protect Ryan, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Ryan is worried about you. He's worried about you, Jonathan, and so you should call him. He should be the person you call first.
Greenlee: You stupid twit, isn't it obvious? I'm trying to keep us alive.
J.R.: If you wanted to frame your father for murder, you would have more reason to do it now than ever. He really pulled a number on your girlfriend.
Ethan: What did he say to her?
J.R.: Well, his side of it.
He must have been pretty convincing, too, because
Ethan: I'm not going to lose her, J.R.
J.R.: Hey, I did my best to defend you.
Ethan: She's surrounded by people who hate me and want to prove that I'm a liar, her family and my family.
J.R.: You know, I hate to
say it, Ethan, but I think they're making headway. I think
Ethan: Damn it, I am going to marry that woman.
J.R.: Whoa. Whoa, wait a minute. You proposed to her?
Ethan: No, not yet. But I'm going to, and when I do, I'm going to make sure that nobody screws it up for me.
J.R.: It's a good thing, you've hit gold with that one. I really envy you. I've had a crush on that girl since high school. She's an amazing woman.
Ethan: I know. That's why I'm not going to let her go without a fight.
J.R.: Well, I'm really glad
that you want me in your corner, Ethan. We nail Slater, not only will he get
life behind bars, but you'll have proved to
Ethan: I appreciate all your help, J.R.
J.R.: You'll return the favor.
Ethan: You can count on it.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a lot of damage limitation to do with
J.R.: Good luck with that.
Zach: I know exactly what Edmund and Maria had, and I don't need a third party explaining it to me, thanks all the same.
Tad: You don't know a damn thing about them. You never will. That little desert fling you call a romance couldn't touch what Maria had with Edmund.
Zach: How would you know?
Tad: Because I know what they meant to each other. We all did. You could see it when they looked at one another. When she came back and she made it home, that was the answer to a prayer. It was like something out of a fairy tale.
Zach: A fairy tale, huh?
Tad: That's right.
Zach: Enter the big bad wolf.
Tad: Yeah. Yeah, something like that. You waltz into town chasing your hacienda fantasy, a woman that never existed, start causing trouble, taking advantage of problems they had with each other? Why? So you could get her to betray everything that ever mattered to her.
Zach: That is so weird to me that you would bring up betrayal after what you did to Miranda, to Bianca, your own son.
Tad: You don't have a clue as to what you're talking about. Your work here is done. A good man's dead, a good woman's destroyed. And the rest of us are just sick to death of looking at you.
Ryan: Yeah, we don't want your help, Slater. We just want you gone.
Greenlee: I was trying to get him to call Ryan first because if he calls Braden, you can bet his next instructions are not going to be "give them milk and cookies and send them home."
Lily: I'm hungry.
Greenlee: I know, honey.
Greenlee: But you did get the one about being caught by said psycho?
Greenlee: What were you doing out here?
Greenlee: You finally realized I was telling the truth -- Ethan's a big, fat liar.
Zach: Wow, that's -- that was enlightening. But we're still no closer to finding Braden. Ah, but I did get to hear a love story for the ages, thank you.
Tad: Go away.
Ryan: Call off your dogs. This is my fight.
Zach: Ok. Don't say I didn't offer, though. You know what, I just don't -- I'm sorry, excuse me. I don't want the irony of this to be lost on you, because you are in exactly the same position that I was in with my brother and you damned us both. I hope Braden gets to you. Because if I find him first, you're never going to see him again.
Babe: Those days that we had with little Adam -- weren't they just magical? It was kind of like we were our own little family. It all just seems like a dream now.
Jamie: Yeah, we made mistakes. But all we ever wanted was to do what's right for our little boy. From now on, we just need to keep our guard up, watch out for anyone who could ever hurt us -- even the people who mean well.
Babe: Thank God for you. One person I never have to doubt.
David: Honestly, I just stopped by to say thank you. I didn't mean to weird you out with the looks and with the questions.
Di: Too late.
David: Come on, you know what it's like. You run into a total stranger, they seem so familiar. It's kind of like seeing a ghost.
Di: Yeah, well, this isn't that movie with the kid that sees dead people. I'm 100% alive, and 100% certain that I don't know you from --
David: A hole in the wall. I remember.
Di: I have a date with a slab of coils they call a mattress.
David: No problem. It was
nice meeting you --
Di: The name's Di.
[Answering machine beeps]
Greenlee: Who's bashing? He lied, it's a fact.
Lily: I saw it right.
Greenlee: Forget her, Lily.
Lily: I thought she lived in
Greenlee: Fine! If you want
to live in denial,
Lily: So does
Greenlee: Forget her. How's the note-taking coming?
Lily: It's coming well. I've written down all the facts in the case.
Greenlee: Let's see.
Lily: Do you think I make a good detective?
Greenlee: Better than
Lily: Greenlee says he doesn't have all his corn flakes, either.
Greenlee: Either way, he's one bad guy. But there's someone out there that's worse than Jonathan.
Tad: He's gone. You going to open that thing or not?
Ryan: If I didn't crumple it into indecipherable when Slater was here.
Tad: Well, if Braden sent you another clue, then chances are he's not going to show up tonight.
Ryan: Unless it reads "look behind you." "One brother safe and blind, one brother left behind, one brother on the run. Three brothers equal none."
Tad: Mean anything?
Ryan: Not to me.
Tad: Well, just take it easy, think about it. I'm going to -- Slaterís got me all freaked out. I'm going to go out and see if I can locate any of his goons.
Ryan: If you find any of them, let me know. I'd like to personally drop them on Slaterís doorstep.
Tad: Yeah, me first.
Ryan: "Safe and blind."
Jonathan: Ryan? Hey, it's me -- Jonathan.
>> On the next "All My Children"...
Maria (to Aidan): Am I mourning a man who loved me or one who hated me?
Ethan (to Erica): Where's
Lily: Hey, I've found a way out.
Ryan: You spoke to Greenlee? What did she say? When did you speak to her?
Braden's voice (to Jonathan): Hang up the phone. Hang it up.
