All My Children Update Friday 1/3/03
Laurie and Joanie are at BJ's Restaurant talking about their favorite topic - the men in their lives. Laurie tells her friend that even though her father has promised to give her space, she's not even mentioning JR around him. She says it was the worst night of her life when her father dragged her out of the Chandler Mansion when he found her with JR. Joanie says maybe this is for the best because JR is just making her life more difficult. Laurie gets defensive and turns the tables. What about her and Jamie, she asks? Jamie thinks Joanie really likes him, Laurie says. Is she just leading him on? Just then JR and Jamie walk into BJ's and spot the girls. JR asks if Laurie wants to go for a ride. She asks if Joanie can come, but he doesn't want to do that. Joanie assumes JR knows that she told Laurie's father they were at the Chandler Mansion together. She says she didn't mean to rat on them but she couldn't lie. Laurie is appalled. Does this mean her father would have left and not found them together had Joanie not tattled? Joanie repeats that she could not lie. Laurie notes, though, that she could lie to her by not telling her this. Laurie calls her friend a hypocrite and walks out. Jamie says he'll talk to Laurie, and goes after her. JR tells Joanie that she's not getting off this easy. JR asks her if her church thinks it's OK if she sells out her best friend? Joanie says she doesn't think it's right that she and JR are sneaking around together. JR tells her she needs to be a better friend to Laurie. Meanwhile, Jamie is trying to calm Laurie down. Laurie says she thinks Joanie was trying to get her in trouble. Jamie says Joanie didn't blab on purpose – her father put her on the spot. He says Joanie has strong beliefs and she shouldn't ask her to lie. Laurie agrees to go back to Joanie and apologize. Joanie also apologizes.

He can't remember his name. Dimitri, Erica reminds him. And they're not married anymore, she adds. Jordan says after learning she was married, he was a broken man.
