All My Children Best Lines Wednesday 7/13/11


Provided By Eva

J.R.: A man's drink -- at least, according to my father. What did he say? "Never order anything other than scotch at a business meeting because scotch makes a statement. But, see, that's not what I'm interested in. I'm more interested in the proof: "How fast can you get me drunk?" If that's the proof, not fast enough.

Tad: You gonna drink it or not?

J.R.: I haven't decided.

Tad: What's holding you back?

J.R.: I need to know the reason. If I'm gonna do this, I need to know the reason why. You're a lucky man, Tad.

Tad: Yeah? Why is that?

J.R.: You know who you are. Me, on the other hand, I have no idea. Scott says I'll never be half the bastard that my father is.

Tad: That's a good thing.

J.R.: Is it?

Tad: Yeah. It means you're lucky enough to take after your mother.

J.R.: No. It means I'll never be bad enough to be my father's son, and I'll never be good enough to be hers. Dixie's voice: You may have the chandler eyes and the chandler drive, but, baby, you have my heart. And I'm so sorry for the pain that it causes you. But I am very proud of the man it's helping you become.

Tad: You say you're feeling trapped between the man you're afraid you are and the man you want to be? You know what's keeping you there? Decision. Either take the drink or you don't. Either take the drink to kill the pain -- and live down to the expectations of others like Scott and Hayward, or you don't. You decide that you can deal with the pain, you push the drink away, and you go to a meeting -- and you live up to your own expectations. This is life, kiddo. Nobody gets it right. We're all here to bump into the furniture. Sooner or later, we all have to take responsibility for the choices that we made while we were here, and it hurts. Decide. And just know that I'll be right here when you need me.
