All My Children Best Lines Monday 8/22/11

Cara: Don't apologize for the kiss, ok? It was mutual. It felt good.

David: I like you very much. It's been a long time since I've spoken so openly with anyone.

Cara: Me, too.

David: And I would love to continue all of this, but I don't think it's a great idea. You're vulnerable right now.

Cara: I'm not a fragile flower.

David: I know that. Of course you're not.

Cara: Ok. I just see that we're having this conversation and it's real, and you're being honest and you're listening without judgment, and I feel like those are really great qualities in a man.

David: Ok. Then you're obviously not listening, because I don't have any great qualities. That's what everybody thinks around here, right? Ask anyone.

Cara: I think you're getting a bad rap. I don't see the horns and the tail and the pitchfork.

David: Ok. That's because I live in a hotel room, remember, and it doesn't go with the motif. The pitchfork is in storage.

Cara: It's in storage? Ok. Well, all kidding aside, I don't really feel like an outsider when I'm with you. You let me in, and I like it, and I want to stay.

Dixie: Please don't be like this.

J.R.: Like what? Who are you to tell me what to do? You don't know the first thing about my life.

Dixie: I'm your mother. I know you. I know inside you is a beautiful, good, caring heart. But when you act like this, all I see is Adam.

J.R.: Here we go.

Dixie: You know the story. He went to incredible extremes to keep you away from me, even locked me in a mental institution. What did that get him? Think about it. Did it get him the eternal admiration of his only son? No. You two have been locked at each other's throats ever since.

J.R.: At least he was here.

Tad: Suffocating you.

Dixie: All I'm saying is there is more to being a father, a good father, than possession of your child.

J.R.: Are you saying that I should give up, that I should just hand A.J. over to Marissa?

Tad: No. We're trying to convince you to be the kind of father that he needs, the kind of father we know you want to be.

Dixie: You can do it. You could break the chandler cycle once and for all.

J.R.: I just want my son back.

Tad: What if you had him? What if you'd won today, and he was back in this house tomorrow? What do you think he would see? He'd see you running around screaming at the top of your lungs acting like your father, ranting about Marissa trying to turn him against her. What do you think would happen? The minute he gets old enough, he's gonna be off like a shot just like you were. Don't make Adam's mistakes.

J.R.: My son loves me.

Dixie: Of course, he loves you, but he needs to know that he can trust you. He and his mom need to feel safe around you.

Tad: If they can, then we'll be behind you every step of the way, and what's more, I know Marissa will, too. She doesn't want to keep A.J. away from you, unless she feels she doesn't have a choice.
