All My Children Best Lines Wednesday 5/14/08


Provided By Gisele

Jake: Oh, Aidan, we've got to stop meeting like this. People are going to think we're dating.

Greenlee: What were you thinking?

Frankie: He wasn't.

Jake: I thought it was a good idea at the time.

Frankie: He's superhuman, remember? It comes with the diploma, the M.D. they put after our names. For some doctors it stands for mentally defective.

[Jake laughs]

Frankie: What's up, Jake? It's good to see you again.

Jack: Oh, no, another Hubbard. I've fallen into a nest of Hubbards.

Frankie: Oh, good, my mom already let you have it.

Jake: They actually gave you a license to practice? Did you bribe somebody?

Frankie: I told them you were my teacher. They felt sorry for me. They didn't even bother making me take the boards. I want a fresh CBC, please.

Jake: Hey, hey, now there's a man that knows real medicine. Do you know how long it's been since I had a cold brew? Hand it over here. Dr. Doolittle, you got any comments, take it up with the head of the hospital, all right?

Frankie: The man you call your daddy? Hey, beer is a liquid bread. You can use both the fluids and the carbs. But just one. I would join you, but it's not a good look.

Jake: You know what that means? He can't hold his liquor.

Aidan: We'll just have to continue this at a proper pub once you get out of here.

Jake: We're in America now, pal. It's called a bar. Get with the lingo. Got it, 007?

Frankie: I remember thinking back to when I was a kid. My mom lecturing me on gambling. The odds are always with the house. Play long enough and you're going to lose. So I started to -- that's how I started to feel, the longer I survived, the shorter my odds were getting.

Jake: Those are the people that I deal with -- the ones whose odds have run out. The thing is, they're not soldiers. They're just civilians -- just people. Take a mall, a mall in America. Anytown, USA and fill it up with people -- moms, kids, babies, and teenagers -- got it? Now picture them all being shot -- just mowed down. My job is to go find the ones that aren't dead yet and put them back together.

Frankie: How do you deal with that?

Jake: You mean, how do you stay sane? You depersonalize it. Don't get attached to anyone or anything. Go through the motions. Do your job. Don't think about yourself. Don't think about your feelings. You're a robot. Don't think about anyone -- anyone that you --

Jackson: So, Greenlee told me about Jake Martin's rescue. Pretty lucky guy.

Zach: Yeah, pretty lucky. Aidan did all the heavy lifting.

Jackson: Yeah, I heard that, too. I also heard that he won't be doing anything like that for you anymore. Is that right?

Zach: Greenlee made that pretty clear.

Kendall: Yeah, I think she's going to have him fit for one of those electronic bracelets that sends him running like a madman and weeping like a baby.
