All My Children Update Thursday 7/5/01
Tad apologizes for kissing Dixie and she tells him she
liked it. He’s afraid to get the
boys hopes up about their relationship. Dixie
tells him that she misses him and he says the same.
At the condo Leo and Laura are kissing when she pulls away
saying she is out of breath. He
tries to turn on the lights but hasn’t had the power turned on.
He says it’s the first time he’s had to do this.
The phone doesn’t work either --- it’s a cordless and needs power to
charge. Laura complains that she
needs to take her pills but can’t read the bottles.
Ryan turns toward Gillian.
She tells him she is home. He
walks right past her, he can’t hear her or see her. He yells to Steven that he needs more bags to pack up
Gillian's clothing. Gillian thinks
he is mad at her for leaving him she begs him to see her and hear. She tries to touch him so that he will know she is there but
gets a shock. She looks at her hand
while Ryan sits on the bedside. Gillian
keeps talking to Ryan and says she does not understand why he doesn’t hear her
and see her like before. She starts
telling him about the way station. She
tells him she isn’t dead and that together they can prove she isn’t.
Again she tries to touch him and gets zapped.
She vows to reach him and when she does she’ll never let him go.
Gabriel arrives at BJ’s and asks to see the Manager.
He asks for a job. The Manager says he could use some help but needs experienced
help. When Gabriel answers no to a
long list of questions the Manager wonders why a 19 year old has no education or
experience. He jokingly asks if
Gabriel grew up in a cave. The
Manager then tells Gabriel that they don’t like loiterers and that if he
can’t pay for a meal to get out. Suddenly
Bianca says “Hey sorry I’m late” and orders burgers and drinks for them
both. Then she says to the Manager
that if he’s afraid that she’s loitering too, she can pay for the meal
in advance. He apologizes and tells
them to take a table.
Dixie and J.R. talk about his community service. He
complains that he isn’t having any fun. Dixie
tells him that having fun isn’t the point.
She really wants him to learn something from this experience but her
words fall on deaf ears. He asks to
go home but Dixie says she has to clean up first.
J.R. goes to Sweeney who is also there and asks what he’s got for him.
At the condo Leo is lighting candles.
Laura tells him that it is wonderful.
He shows her the flowers he got and when he puts them near her face she
starts coughing uncontrollably.
When she stops he says that it’s good she is coughing since David says
she should cough to clear out her lungs. They
go through her medicine and find the one she needs to take.
As she is about to take the medicine there is a knock at the door. It’s Zora who is moving in to help Laura with her recovery.
Leo and Laura are taken aback by this information.
Zora quickly informs Leo to get rid of the flowers because standing water
is a breeding ground for bacteria. She
informs them that Brooke paid for her to stay with Laura and help her get back
on her feet. When Leo asks how long
that will be? She says about two months. Zora
goes off to her room and they joke about Madam Zora.
Laura asks for food and Leo magically brings a gourmet dinner for two.
Ribs and fries, which delights Laura since she is craving “real”
food. Zora smells the
food and comes back and takes the food away because Laura can’t have it.
Leo and Laura look at each other frustrated.
J.R. is amazed at the things Sweeney has.
Sweeney says this stuff will get you higher than where you’ve been.
When J.R. helps himself Sweeney says “No cash, no stash.”
Sweeney reminds J.R. to be careful with how much he takes and J.R.
sarcastically says he’ll eat it like candy (it looks like a candy necklace).
As he’s about to take a hit Dixie appears and asks what is going on.
Gabriel thanks Bianca for saving him and she tells him she
heard just about everything. Bianca
tells him to learn a new strategy to getting a job. She offers to give him a job…if she had a job to give.
She asks to know more about Gabriel’s story, especially since the joke
about growing up in a cave really seemed to strike a nerve.
Gabriel informs her that he was kept locked in a cage until he escaped.
She wants to know if he was hurt since she’s noticed the burn marks.
He angrily tells her that he doesn’t want to talk about it especially
since she doesn’t even know him. She says there is something about him that
makes her want to know him better. She
says she knows what its like to alone and lost.
Rosa comes in with Marcus.
Gillian begs Ryan to stop and listen to her with his heart.
She is shouting at him. Steven
appears with the bags for Gillian’s clothes.
He is putting her clothes in them while Gillian is shouting that she
needs her things. She angrily looks
toward Steven when he is knocked to the floor.
She is encouraged and is trying to do it again when Natalie and Harold
appear and Nat scolds her for doing what she is doing.
What do you want? Gillian asks. “You hurt someone” Nat says, “I’m here to help you.” Ryan yells at Steven and then apologizes. When he asks himself what he is doing he decides to get out there and stop putting off what he’s been putting off. Gillian goes to follow him and before Natalie can tell her that there is an easier way but Gillian is already gone. Natalie tells Harold to do his “tracking” duty and they both disappear.
Bianca notices Gabriel staring at Rosa.
She asks him what is wrong. He
tells her that he doesn’t trust Marcus and Bianca agrees with him.
Marcus sees Gabriel and tells Rosa that he thinks he is a disaster waiting
Leo gets a glass of water so that Laura can take her
medicine. They are now waiting for
organic take-out. Laura asks him if
he is willing to go through with all of this.
When he doesn’t understand, she says don’t you realize how much
trouble I am. We have no privacy
and you can’t even eat what you want she laments.
She tells him he has a fun heart and that he should be out in the world
not stuck in a sick house. Are you
kicking me out he asks? She says
no. He tells her that wherever she
is, is where he wants to be. He made a vow and he meant it. When
they hear another knock at the door they think that the food is finally here. Instead it’s Ryan. He
wants to make sure Laura is okay. Gillian
who has followed him is standing behind him as he talks to Laura and Leo.
Laura says she’s glad he is there because she really wanted to talk to
him. She says, “Thanks to you and Gillian I will make it.”
Gillian doesn’t understand. Ryan
says he wanted to come there to make sure he did the right thing and that he can
see he did. Seeing you better and
Leo happy he starts, but Laura interrupts and says that when she puts her hand
on her chest and feels Gillian’s heart strong and healthy that she wonders if
she deserves it. She loved you so
much Laura tells Ryan. Gillian
begins to cry as she realizes that Laura has her heart and that she truly is
dead. Nat and Harold appear again.
If they took my heart how can I be standing here? she asks Natalie.
Nat explains that it is her spirit she feels not a physical body.
Leo and Laura thank Ryan for coming by and that it was good
to see him. Ryan leaves telling Leo
to be good to Laura. He’ll try he
says and goes back to Laura. She
says she feels better, almost like Ryan was giving her his blessing. Outside he leaves as Natalie and Gillian watch him.
Nobody has my heart but you Gillian says.
At the boathouse Jamie and Petey distract Dixie while J.R.
puts his stash in a backpack sitting next to him. J.R. introduces Sweeney as a friend from school and she says
that he can’t possibly be in J.R.’s class.
He says no as J.R. interrupts and says that Sweeney was just telling him
about teachers he will have next fall. Opal
and Myrtle decide it’s time to leave. Opal tells Dixie that she should never have said yes that
Petey could stay over with Jamie since she know they’ll never get any sleep
and Petey will come home grumpy. Jamie
grabs his backpack and leaves with Opal.
Rosa excuses herself and Marcus goes to Bianca’s table
and asks if Gabriel is bothering her. She
defends Gabriel but Marcus threatens Gabriel.
Marcus starts in on Bianca being a lesbian and tells Gabriel that he’s
wasting his time if he thinks Bianca will “swing” his way.
Gabriel grabs Marcus and shoves him to the floor.
Marcus is bleeding and goes after Gabriel as the Manager steps in and
stops them. Gabriel apologizes to Bianca and she thanks him for defending
her honor. But she advises him to
walk away from Marcus next time since he holds grudges.
A cop shows up and asks what the problem is? Marcus says he was assaulted and has Gabriel arrested even
though Bianca tells the officer that it’s not what Marcus says it was.
Gillian is angry that she can’t help Ryan.
She yells at Nat for not telling her what the task is and that they are
keeping her and Ryan apart. She is
afraid that she can’t get back to Ryan. Gillian
suddenly disappears and Nat is frustrated.
Harold does his job and they disappear too.
J.R. is ransacking the remaining bags looking for his drugs
and realizes that one of the boys must have it. Meanwhile at Brooke’s Jamie and Petey find the necklace and
wonder where it came from. Petey
asks if he can have some. “Sure,”
