All My Children Update Wednesday 7/31/02
is showing some girl around his place and they come to his jukebox.
She is curious about it. He
shows her that it works and some music plays. He really likes this girl and he
asks her to dance. She feels silly doing that there.
They hold each other and she is uncomfortable hoping that some of his
friends should be coming soon. He
tells her that they might show up or they might not.
He holds her very close to him and he is drinking beer so he is not
thinking totally straight. The
music is slow and romantic and he is getting into it a little, but she seems
scared. He isnít sure if his
friends are coming over or not but who cares, steal the moment. It is just the 2
of them now and that is the way that JR likes it.
She is very aware that he is coming on to herÖoutside; Timmy, Maggie
and Bianca are on their way in to JRís place. they hear someone scream inside,
ďGet off me!Ē They rush in to see JR with the young woman.
She has pushed him away from her and she is covered by the beer that he
was drinking. Bianca worries that
Lori isnít okay. JR feels that
everyone thinks that he is a mugger. Loriís
dad is going to kill her when he smells beer on her.
JR gets angry and tells them to back off. He goes running out with Bianca
shouting after him. Tim goes after
JR and the girls help Lori feel better about what has happened.
Bianca tells her that she should touch up her makeup as she looks a
little freaked out. She leaves the room and Bianca thinks that Tim was great
about coming in right away to help. Bianca
talks about him as if he were a hero. Maggie
tells Bianca that she will cut Tim some slack now.
Bianca wants her to admit that she is attracted to Tim.
is having a time with herself thinking that she canít handle what is happening
with she and Edmund. She nearly has had a breakdown since she realized that
Maria is still alive. She spoke to
the woman and she is sure that this Maureen person is the woman that Edmund
grieved for. She was the perfect
wife to him and she may still be alive. She
is ready for anything now she thinks. She
has a heart to heart with God, telling him just what she thinks of all of this.
She has been tested and tested and she is not giving up anyone else in her life
without a fight. She has lost her
daughter, and then she lost Laura and Tom and Tad and that is all that she is
going to give up. Since Laura has
been gone, she has been a saint thinking that something good is going to happen
for her if she just waits and does good to everyone else.
She was happy putting everyone else first before her, but not anymore.
She looks at herself in the mirror. She is hurting in vein in her body
from this ordeal. She should have left Maria alone and then she could have lived
the life that she wanted. Tad was right to warn her to stop this quest to find
the real Maria. She should just act
human and think of herself and lie. Yes
that is what she is going to do from now on.
She swears to God that if she gets another chance, she will do anything
to keep Edmund for herself. She will sell her soul to make Maria stay dead and
buried. She makes a hard promise,
but she is determined to keep it.
Tad is at the hospital in Nevada looking for Maureen. He is directed to her and finds the woman that says she is Maureen. This woman definitely isnít Maria. Tad looks her over carefully and there isnít a whole lot of resemblance, but there is some. Tad can see that. The real Maria is watching from behind a corner. She is hoping that the man talking to her friend will believe what he is hearing and leave her alone. She is listening to what is going to happen next as she peers at the two in the hallway. The woman insists that she is Maureen and that there is no other, but Tad says that she canít possibly be Maureen. The woman says that some woman was looking for her earlier named Brooke and she threatened to call the police over that discussion, and that the woman was having a hard time believing that she wasnít this Maria person. This woman says that she has been Maureen Gorman since the day she was born and that is that. The woman threatens to call the cops on Tad as he insists that she might be someone else. She says that she has never heard of this woman before and doesnít want to get involved in anything else that he has to say to her. Tad wants her to prove who she is. The woman reaches into her purse and brings out some ID that proves that she is who she says that she is. He looks at it unbelievingly, but he has to accept what he sees. Maureen thinks that Brooke is on the verge of a breakdown and should seek help for her problem. Tad is not sure that everything that the woman is saying is true, but he is convinced for now that she is telling the truth. She assures him that she is the only Maureen that he is going to find anywhere so he should stop looking. Tad leaves and the woman that was speaking to Tad calls Maria out from hiding. They think that they have fooled Tad into thinking that Brooke was mistaken. Maria tries to pay the woman for what she has done, but the woman wonít take money. They are friends and she will not treat this as a business deal. She thinks that this was fun and she will not tell anyone about this. She can see the fear in Mariaís eyes. Maria trusts her but she is afraid of the Pine Valley people coming into her life and she definitely doesnít want that.
has come to see Anna and he needs her help. He wants to know what is up with
Brooke lately. She has lied to him and now he needs to know the truth.
He wants to know what Tad and Brooke are chasing in Nevada.
David does everything to stop them from talking further.
He has been talking to Maria and he is trying to keep her hidden for some
reason only known to him. Anna
agrees to talk to him and so Edmund enters the room.
David doesnít appreciate this one bit.
Anna tells him that this has nothing to do with him but that doesnít
make him go away. Edmund tells what
has been happening with Brooke and Tad and how they have been taking off
together. Now Tad is missing too.
The last time that they were missing, they ended up in Nevada.
David feels that he knows enough about Tad to be able to give the answer
as to what has been going on. David
makes a mistake saying that Edmund should drop this as this is only going to end
up in misery. How does David know
that and why does he care? Anna
turns to her husband curious about the answer to this as well.
David says that he has a good thing with Brooke and that he should pursue
that in spite of what Martin might do to thwart that.
David feels that Tad may be trying to control Brooke somehow and tries to
convince Edmund of the same. Davidís
phone rings and it is Maria asking him to help her again.
She is freaking out now as Tad has just been there and it seems like the
walls are closing in on her. He
canít talk now so he covers the phone with his hand.
She demands that he help her now. Anna
comes over to him to see who is on the phone. He says that he has to talk to
some patient that has gotten his private number. He leaves the room to talk
further with Maria and give she and Edmund more privacy.
ďWhat has been happening?Ē he asks Maria.
He tells her that she has to leave town now. If she leaves without a
trace, everything will be fine and back to normal.
He has apparently been helping her out with things and she trusts him
with her life. He re-enters the
room where his wife and Edmund are talking and the talk is over.
Edmund seems much better now that Anna has given him new perspective and
he leaves. David tells her that she
has to forget about helping Edmund as her career is already in the dumps.
Jackson is after her job and she should really be playing ball with him to save
herself and this isnít the way to do it.
She is sacrificing her career and her life.
She points out that he needs some help. She is going to do anything that
she can to make things right again. David
should have known better than to think that he could change her mind. She wants
to help the wounded. She didnítí think that Edmund would ever get over his
wife and she feels that she has to help. She canít think what she would do if
something happened to David. They
get back to the subject of conception of a child.
David Junior. They hold each
finds JR at the boathouse throwing rocks into the water.
Tim is glad to be in town as he has friends there.
JR used to have friends when he used to get high.
Now he has no one. Half of his friends went to the hard stuff and the
others are clean now. JR thinks
that people treat him as if he has fangs now.
JR says that he isnít cynical and sarcastically says that he loves
being Adamís child. He thinks
that Lori feels that he is a freak. JR
feels that he doesnít measure up to Tim as Tim has donated his liver and is
the town hero. Tim has a plan for
him to get Lori. He thinks that JR
should try to get Lori back for himself. Tim
has two foolproof steps for JR to follow. He
tells JR the tips and JR tries to remember what to do.
Tim knows that JR messed up with the girl and he probably did that
because his mother just died and he has things on his mind.
They hear the girls coming and Tim hopes that JR uses the tips that Tim
has given him. JR apologizes to Lori about the way that he acted.
She only wanted him to ask before touching her.
He can do that. Now what are
they goig to do? Bianca says that
she is hungry and they need a munchie run.
They all start leaving but Bianca says that Maggie and Tim have to stay
as the car only has 4 seats. They know that they are being set up but they deal
with it. When they are alone, Tim
jokes that Maggie was the one that begged Bianca to clear everyone out because
she wants him. She can pick up a
man if she wants one. She doesnít need help from anyone.
Tim knows that she turns down every man that asks her out.
JR told him everything that he knows about her.
They discuss pickup techniques. She tells him that if she wants a guy she
looks him in the eyes and she shares heat by getting closer to him.
She does both of these things to Tim and then she kisses him.
He likes that. He technique
is very effective.
is in her room when she hears knocking. It
is Tad and she wants to hear the news. Tad
tries to calm her down. She will not listen.
He has news that she wants to hear.
He asks her to think back and remember.
He tells her that she has driven herself to distraction and that is
because she is afraid that Maria is coming back to take Edmund.
Tad makes her listen to him. He
found Maureen and he talked to her and looked at her square in the eye and she
is not Maria. Not al all.
Maureen Gorman is not Maria Santos Grey.
Brooke turns to him dumbfounded. Brooke
thinks back to the time that she first saw Maria and she is sure that she knows
that she saw the woman that she has been afraid to find.
How does Tad know that the woman isnít Maria?
Tad is sure that the woman that he saw wasnít Maria.
He even looked at her ID. She is a bloody mess. She is hot suddenly.
Her heart is playing tricks on her and he is sure of that.
She wants him to be sure about this.
He makes her sit with him as he talks.
She has to remember when Jamie was young and was worried about monsters
under the bed. She looked through
the whole room to prove to him that there was nothing to be afraid of.
She has to believe in Tad and not her fears. She has to put this behind
her and go home to Edmund. She is
getting an order to put this whole thing behind her and enjoy the happiness that
she deserves. Her prayers have been
answered finally. This has been
what she has been talking to God about. Tad
knows of no one else that would make a trip like this. She must really care for
Edmund. Brooke feels that she is
finally free now and she is looking forward to marrying Edmund.
Tad gives her the phone telling her to call Edmund.
She dials the number and Edmund answers. He is at SOS. She is sorry that
she has taken off again but she is coming home the next morning. She assures him
that she will never leave him again. He
hears something in her voice. She assures him that she is fine and will tell him
everything in the morning. She
loves him completely and he loves her. Tad
wants to know what she is going to say the next day to Edmund.
Brooke stops to think that over. She isnít going to tell Edmund why she
was there. There is nothing to tell
she thinks. She loves Edmund and if he knew why she was there, that would break
his heart. Brooke has caused Edmund
a lot of pain with these trips. God has given her happiness and she is going to
run with it. She will meet with Tad
the next day. They are going to leave for home at dawn.
Tad leaves and Brooke knows that Tad never met Maria and that she is
still out there.
is alone now after having spoken to David. She remembers Brooke telling her that
she was in an accident. Brooke
explained who she was and why she was there.
She was looking for someone. That
name Maria rings a bell in her head. It
echoes over and over in her mind.
is in SOS when JR, Lori and Bianca enter. Lori
leaves to call her dad. Bianca and
JR discuss what to order for food. JR
knows that she had a plan by getting them over there.
Guys are not pea brains. She
wanted to leave Maggie and Tim alone. Maggie
seems to JR to want some one on one time. That is not exactly what Bianca was
going to say, but Öokay.
and the kids return to the boathouse and can see that Tim and Maggie have been
getting on well while they have been alone.
gets another call while he is at SOS. Someone
calls with information on Brooke. He is told that Tad and Brooke are at a hotel
in Nevada. He wants to be told if
there is any more news on the both of them. What is Brooke doing and what is
drawing her to Nevada?
is sleeping and she is hearing the voice of Brooke. The voice says, ďÖand I
