All My Children Update Monday 7/29/02
and Mia have just bumped into each other. She is at the hospital to talk to
Jake more about her child and why she couldnít tell the father of her child
that she was pregnant at the time. Turns
out that Jake has left and is not at the hospital anymore.
She was on her way out when she bumped into Frank.
He seems happy to see her. She
canít believe it, that he is standing before her now.
It really is him. She didnít know that he was a doctor now.
He tells her that he has finally made it as a doctor.
If she needs medication of any sort, he is now a full-fledged doctor
and can help out, he jokes. She
is terribly surprised at him being there and not at all eased by his jokes. He
didnít think that he would make it either as a doctor, but alas, here he is.
He calls her a nickname that he used to use with her, and she shouts at
him not to call her that. He is
surprised at her reaction, but agrees not to upset her.
He knows her quite well but something happened in the past and she
became very angry with him. Apparently,
she is still angry with him. He
asks her to coffee and off they go to talk.
tells Liza that the tapes were erased. She
was trying to get evidence on Adam conniving to scam her by making her think
that she was going crazy. She got
a hold of surveillance tapes that would have proved him guilty but they had
nothing on them. Adam must have
been smart enough to make sure that the tapes wouldnít be seen.
He is very smart and they know it.
He has been playing Liza for a fool for a long time, but now the tables
are going to be turned. He is
trying to maker her think that she cut up his shirt, but that is not true at
all. She canít prove anything
in a court of law, as she has been ill in the past and he could make people
think that what he is saying is true. She feels that she really is crazy now.
Tad warns her not to think like that or she may buckle under the
pressure that Adam is applying. Now
he has to work to make her look like she has diminished capacity.
How easy is that going to be? He
has done this already to Dixie and people will remember that if all this comes
to light. He told Liza that they
are the same and he is going to find out just how right he is.
She has to prove that she is being gas lighted in order to win this
battle against him. She begs Tad
to play along with her for a while. She
will hope to get something on tape. Maybe
he will say something that will prove everything that she is saying.
That is a lot of ifs and what she is doing is very dangerous.
Tad warns her to be very careful as this could backfire in her face.
Liza will die before she gives up her daughter. Tad really doesnít
like her saying that. He would
die for his kids but with Adam as your spouse, things can get pretty hairy if
you let it. Colby is a part of
her and Adam is trying to take her away.
She just canít let that happen.
Colby is only his daughter because he changed the results of the
paternity test. Liza wants to
protect her daughter and has been planning to take her away for a very long
time. Liza is sorry for what she
was going to do but she was afraid that she was going to die and her tumour
was a huge factor in some of her decisions. This is Adamís style all the
way. Liza is going to make sure
that Adam loses this one. Tad
hugs Liza and Edmund comes in saying that Tad is never at a loss it seems when
someone needs a shoulder to cry on. He
has gotten everything wrong and Liza and Tad are embarrassed that they have
been caught hugging each other this way.
She quickly leaves and Edmund asks Tad where Brooke is right now.
Tad says nothing. Tad
doesnít find this amusing, but Edmund doesnít believe that. He is sure
that Tad has some plan up his sleeve and is trying to confuse Brooke into
being with him. Edmund thinks
that Tad was up to some funny stuff with Liza just now and he brings that up
again. Tad wants to overlook what
Edmund is implying. He is not
some guy on the move for anything that he can get.
Tad tells him that Brooke loves him, but Edmund knows that Tad loves
her too. Tad tells him again that
he is not in the picture here. Tad
tells him that she is off protecting her love for Edmund.
Edmund finds that to be a strange thing to say.
What is it that he needs protection from?
Why is there love in danger? Tad
assures him that he is not trying to take Brooke from him, but Edmund will
only believe that if Tad tells where Brooke is.
Tad tells him that Brooke has waited her whole life for Edmund, like
Dixie did for him, and he shouldnít screw it up by being jealous or
overbearing. Tad assures him
again that he is not involved. People are not interchangeable.
He couldnít stand in for Edmund at all, as Edmund couldnít stand in
for him if that were the case. Tad
promises to tell Edmund the second that Brooke tells him something more. He
leaves and Tad goes to the phone. He calls see if Brooke has checked in.
He learns that Brooke is in Nevada.
Brooke has used her credit card there and that is how he learns of her
whereabouts. She has to get home
soon or she will not have Edmund to get home to.
Tad is really worried now.
talks to Barry, his lawyer, and tells him that he realizes that Liza knows
that he is playing a game with her. She is too smart and sneaky for him to
jump in and try to take advantage of any opportunity.
Looks like Adam has met his match again.
Adam hates that Barry thinks that Liza is a match for him.
Barry is there to help in anyway he can, but he is not sure what he can
do at this point. Liza has Adam
off balance and he has no idea what her strategy is.
He has to act quickly and quietly. He is sure that a judge will find
her unfit to raise a child. He is
going to have Liza committed to Oakhaven and he will then get custody of
Colby. He is going to put her away permanently.
Barry reminds him that he has tried to do this before with Dixie.
He had her committed to the same facility.
The courts might find a similarity to what he did before.
This is not the 1800s and you canít just throw your wife away.
Adam has loved Liza and has been devoted to her for.
Liza was plotting to steal his child and Adam found out. She was
embezzling funds to prepare for her escape.
That might be a result of the tumour but the doctors canít be sure.
He trusted her and treasured her, but she has been lying to him day
after day. Her betrayal really
hurt him. Adam is angered and she
can go to hell but not with Colby. Barry
canít just check Liza into the hospital, as she isnít a danger to others.
She wasnít the one that cut up his shirts.
Adam says that she must be trying to kill him.
That is perfect as there will be no court that will give her the child.
Barry tells him that he is getting into dangerous territory. Barry
might not be able to get him out of this one.
Adam is going to leave her defenceless so that she will get herself in
trouble. Adam doesnít want to
tell him anything to keep him safe from criminal charges if there are any.
Liza walks in and the men quickly change the conversation.
Adam hugs Liza telling her that she is going to be fine, as he will
take care of everything. Barry
leaves and Liza tells him that she is taking Colby away. She wants to take
Colby with her to England or somewhere else.
Adam says that he will clear his calendar. She tells him that she will
meet up with him later. He hugs
her and tells her that he will make sure that she and he are together.
He doesn't want to be without her for one minute.
Both are pretending to be in love still and wanting to be together.
They remember the past and vacations that they took together. Money
canít by happiness, but when he saw her walk through the door the first
time, that was priceless to him. She cried and she looked just like an angel
and he fell for her all over again. It
was then that she realized that he was the most wonderful man in the world.
He gets an idea. Maybe
they should have spent more time away. That might have held the magic a little
longer. Colby comes in and she
grabs the remote and turns it on. It
is mommy and daddyís fairytale. It
is a tape of Liza and Adam getting married.
has come face to face with Maria. She
only says that she remembers Brooke as the woman that fainted in the motel the
other day. Maria knows that
Brooke is following her. Why is she following her?
Brooke realizes that Maria has no idea who she is.
ďDonít you know who I am?Ē Brooke asks.
Maria wants to know what is going on.
Brooke tells her that she knows who Maria is.
Maria tries to get away from Brooke but Brooke follows her.
She asks Maria is she remembers being in an accident.
Maria remembers that. It
was horribly painful for her. She
tells Brooke some stories and Brooke can see that things are not jiving.
Maria is upset that people are following her around.
Brooke tells her that she is a reporter and she is from Pine Valley.
Brooke says her name, ďMaria Santos GreyĒ.
Even the initials are the same. Maria
warns her to back off of she is going to call the police and have her
arrested. She doesnít like to be bullied or spied on by anyone.
Brooke needs to back off now. Brooke
promises that she will not come anywhere near her in the future.
Maria likes to hear that. She
hopes that Brooke finds this woman, but she has to look for that woman
and Mia go to a restaurant for coffee and he learns that she used to work at
the hospital too. She was a physical therapist in training and then she quit
to help her sister. He didnít
know that she had a sister. Liza
Colby is her sister and Frank starts putting things together.
She never told him she says because her relatives were sort of a
secret. She asks what he has been
up to. He used to make films but
after a while things got old. Nothing
really stays the same. His dream
changed as his life turned out differently than expected.
He notices that she has no wedding ring.
She tells him that she is living at the mansion with the Chandler.
He asks why she dumped him. She
skirts the issue. She didnít
tell him about Liza because she didnít know about Liza back then.
She says that she left him because things got too wild. She didnít
say anything and that was because she thought that he wouldnít listen to
her. She admires his dedication and work and then something changed. She just
took off and he wants to know what happened to them.
A child at another table with his mother calls out, ďLook Mommy!Ē
When Mia hears that, she knocks over her coffee cup.
This reminds him of the night that they had dinner at Marioís. She
remembers that. There were 15 of them at the table and right across from them
were kids having a French fry fight. She
remembers him not liking that at the time.
Frank only wished that the parents had controlled their children
better. He has mellowed since
then. He used to be the angry
young man with a camera. He is
different now. He was different
back then too. He did lots of
things that he was not proud of back then. He takes responsibility for them
breaking up. They both were
partying a lot. If anyone found out what happened with him in the past,
especially Jake Martin. She jumps when she hears his name. She thinks that no
one should hear about their past. She suggests that they pretend that they
donít know each other so that they can get along better.
This way they can start with a clean slate. That means a lot to Mia.
People will get involved and talk about them.
That seems to make sense to him. His
beeper goes off and he has to run. He
is glad that they ran into each other. She
pays the bill as a welcome back for him.
He is going to like living there after all.
He leaves and Edmund comes in and sits at a table.
He gets a call from Brooke. She
is sorry to run out on him but she got a call from a woman. She lies about
what she is doing and Edmund assures her that he will not ask her anything
else. She tells him that she
loves him and she quickly hangs up on him.
He knows that she is hiding something.
is in her hotel room and she looks out the window. She remembers Maureen
telling her that she is not the woman that Brooke is looking for. She said
that she was born in Southern California.
It is possible that this woman is just a dead ringer for Maria. That
doesnít prove anything. Why
should Brooke disrupt this womanís life anymore?
The initials are the same. Brooke
freaks out and grabs the lamp throwing it to the wall, and flinging herself on
calls David Hayworth and she tells him that the woman has come back and she
tried to talk to her. Maureen
asks him what she should do. David has to think.
