All My Children Best Lines Monday 2/21/11

J.R.: I take full responsibility.

Colby: Is that supposed to be some sort of joke?

J.R.: No. It's an apology. What Annie put you through --

Colby: What she put me through? J.R., I honestly thought Annie was gonna kill me.

J.R.: But you're safe now.

Colby: Oh, I guess that's all that matters, right? Never mind that I was trapped alone with that lunatic wondering how long it was gonna be until she bashed my head in.

J.R.: You can't think like that.

Colby: Have you ever seen Annie like that? Have you ever looked her in the eyes when she's about to go over the edge? J.R., I tried to get away, but she freaked out. I was so scared for my life.

J.R.: All right. I'll make it up to you.

Colby: How? What are you gonna do, buy me a car? J.R., you honestly don't get it. I could be dead. Marissa almost was. Emma is gone, all because of your ego.

J.R.: I thought I had everything under control. Look. I made a mistake.

Colby: Mistakes, mistakes. You seem to make a lot of those because you think that you can handle anything, but you can't. You tried to run this family, but look at it. It's falling apart. J.R., you're divorced, ok? You're dating a psychopath. Chandler Enterprises is a mess, and Scott, well, he wants no part of this family.

J.R.: Colby, that's enough, all right?

Colby: You are in so far over your head, it's actually pathetic, because you think that you can be Dad, but you will never ever be Dad.

J.R.: I've listened to what you had to say. Now it's my turn.

J.R.: I understand your hesitation. Please just hear me out before you make a final decision.

Marissa: There is nothing that is going to change my mind.

J.R.: Well, I do know how much you love Lucretia's apple pie.

Marissa: That's the best you can do? I have work to do.

J.R.: Seriously, though. Marissa, this makes sense.

Marissa: Oh, for you.

J.R.: For A.J.

Marissa: I get it. So Annie is out of the picture. Now you want me back here.

J.R.: I lied about Annie, but I'm done lying. This is about A.J. This is about giving him the stability he needs, so he can wake up in the same bed every morning, so he can see his mom and his dad together, working together.

Marissa: Nothing is gonna make me move back here.

J.R.: You can have your own wing, ok, complete privacy. You're not even gonna see me, but A.J. will know that you're here.

Marissa: No. No. Did I say no? Because -- no.

J.R.: This is a chance for us to be in A.J.'s life all the time, not just when some custody agreement says it's ok. We won't get this time back, and I don't want to miss anything. Do you?

Marissa: How many times have I told you that this house is toxic to me? It's the place where I was lied to, betrayed, humiliated, almost asphyxiated. There is no way that I am moving back in here.

J.R.: Even for our son?

Marissa: I love A.J. I would do anything for him, but this doesn't help him. It helps you, makes you think that no matter what you do, you can get your way, but I'm sorry, J.R. That's not how life works.
