All My Children Best Lines Tuesday 5/18/10


Provided By Gisele

David: You came down real hard on me for going after Ryan. You said that you would end our marriage if I did anything like that again. But for whatever reason, you're ok with me helping you ruin Erica.

Greenlee: Your plan was a secret. You did it behind my back, because you didn't trust my commitment to this marriage. This is completely different. I'm working with you, not against you.

David: Ok, so, it's all right to be devious as long as we're being devious together?

Greenlee: Yes.

Scott: Yeah. You see, my mom -- she knew how sick she was. And she knew that -- she knew I'd grow up without her, so she wanted me to be prepared. So she told me that she loved me, and that Stuart would always be there to take care of me, and to always be a good boy.

Annie: Hmm.

Scott: And those words -- they just chipped away at me. "Good boy" --

Annie: Well, that doesn't sound so bad.

Scott: It was. See, I didn't want to disappoint Mom. And I was under this constant pressure. But I was just a kid. You know, I couldn't be good all the time. You know, sometimes, I would sneak a candy bar before dinner, or I said I'd finish my homework when I actually hadn't. And the more bad things that I did, the more guilty that I felt. Until one day, I just couldn't take it anymore. I just -- I lost it, and I started bawling like a baby. I told my dad I couldn't do it, that I couldn't be good all the time.

Annie: And what did Stuart say?

Scott: He said that nobody could be good all the time. Not even him. And then he told me this story about -- hmm -- how, when my mother used to make brownies, and she would catch him sticking his finger in the batter, and then she would laugh and, you know -- she -- she said that she didn't expect perfection from anybody. That she knew that I would be tempted, that she knew that I would do things that I wasn't supposed to do, and it didn't make me bad. It just made me human.

Annie: So why the hat?

Scott: The hat my dad got for me. And he -- he said that I should put it on whenever I had those bad feelings. That it was my "secret weapon" against the guilty feelings. And the funny thing is, it actually worked. It actually made me feel better.

Annie: So? Put it on.

Scott: I can't. It doesn't fit anymore.
