All My Children Update Friday 9/6/02
Greenlee and Leo are discussing David's latest legal problems. Greenlee can't understand why he would not tell anyone that Maria was alive. Leo says he thinks David is actually sorry for what he's done, but he gave him permission to walk away from him and that is what he's doing. He says if someone had kept Greenlee away from him for all those years, he would never forgive him. Trey knocks on the door and Greenlee tells him he must prove that he's not playing them for suckers. Leo says he wants Trey to lead them to Vanessa's drug money. Greenlee explains that Leo needs the money so he won't be charged as an accessory in Vanessa's crimes. Trey says he has no idea where the money is but suggests that he and Leo work together to find it. Trey says if he finds it, maybe the district attorney would go easy on him once it is discovered he stole a man's identity. Leo and Greenlee agree, and they all shake on the deal. Leo and Trey decide to go talk to Vanessa.
As they open the door, Simone is there. Greenlee says she invited her. Leo can't understand why Greenlee would invite Simone over. After all, they hate her. Greenlee says she hopes to patch things up with Simone. After Leo and Trey leave, Greenlee says all she wants is for Simone to tell her everything she knows about Trey. Simone says she doesn't know much. But one thing stands out, she says. Trey seemed accident prone. She says he would return home limping with bruises. Once he had a bad burn on his hand and he wouldn't discuss it, she says. Greenlee thinks this is not very important information, and says thanks for nothing. She wants Simone to leave, but Simone is hoping they can go to lunch tomorrow. Greenlee tells her to forget it. The phone rings and Greenlee is called into work. She says a car is being sent for her. She escorts Simone out.

Anna says the board has already ruled against David, upon her recommendation. David asks Anna why she has turned on him. He wonders how she can dismiss everything that they mean to each other.

David tells Aidan to back off. Anna tells David that she will pursue a divorce and she walks away. Aidan follows and tells her that David will tear her life apart just as he has done to Maria.
