All My Children Best Lines Tuesday 8/30/11

Angie: You're not making any sense. What do you mean, Lucy isn't our child?

Jesse: She isn't.

Angie: Jesse, what do you mean, she isn't?

Jesse: She doesn't belong to us.

Angie: That's enough. I don't want to hear any more.

Jesse: Angela, I need to do this. You need to hear this. Lucy is not our baby. Our baby died the night she was born. I did everything I could to try to save her, but she wasn't breathing. She wouldn't breathe.

Angie: But you put her in my arms. You handed her to me -- crying, screaming, breathing -- and Lucy was perfectly fine.

Jesse: Yes, Lucy was perfectly fine. Ellie wasn't. Ellie was not strong enough.

Angie: Oh, God, Jesse! Why are you doing this?!

Jesse: Angela, you gave up your sight to bring our daughter into this world! I could not let all of that be for nothing!

Angie: It wasn't for nothing! I stopped taking the medication, so that our baby would be born healthy, and she was.

Jesse: No, she wasn't. When I knew we lost Ellie, I -- I put another baby into your arms.

Angie: No, stop it! Stop it!

Jesse: Baby, listen to me!

Angie: Let me go.

Jesse: It's been killing me keeping this from you all this time, but I couldn't break your heart. I couldn't hurt you. I -- I'm so sorry.

Angie: No. No, no, no, no. I'm sorry. It's not true. None of this is -- it's not true. Just let us -- it's not true.

Jesse: I wish to God it wasn't, but it is. It is. Our baby -- our baby girl is gone.

Angie: Stop lying to me!

Angie: [Sobs] You -- you say that you love me, then you tell me our baby died? Why would you be so cruel?

Jesse: I'm not trying to be cruel, baby. It's just time for the truth.

Angie: All right. Fine. Go ahead. Tell me the damn truth!

Jesse: Come sit down.

Jesse: The truth is that I shouldn't have taken you to that damn house in the first place. And when you first had problems with that first contraction, I should've taken you straight to the hospital. I can't believe I didn't do that. I slipped that, and I will never forgive myself for that.

Angie: I wanted to stay. It was my choice, and everything turned out fine.

Jesse: No, it didn't. You were in labor, and when the baby started coming, you passed out.

Angie: And you delivered our daughter.

Jesse: I delivered our daughter, who wasn't breathing. She wasn't crying. She was just -- she was just still. I tried to do CPR. I -- I was pumping on her little chest, begging her to take a breath.

Angie: No. No. No, that didn't happen. That's not what happened.

Jesse: I did everything I could to save her, Angela, but she wouldn't breathe. She was gone.

Angie: No. Lies. All these lies, Jesse -- they're just lies!

Jesse: Baby, I held her. I held her in my arms, and I rocked her. I apologized to her. I apologized to you, because I promised I was gonna bring that baby into this world safe, and I let you down.

Angie: I don't --

Jesse: Ellie knows that we love her. She knew. She was at peace.

Angie: No.

Jesse: That's when I -- that's when I put Lucy into your arms. And soon after that -- baby, soon after that, I buried Ellie --

Angie: No! No! No! No, I don't believe you! I don't believe you! No!

Jesse: I wanted to tell you --

[Angie cries]

Jesse: I wanted to tell you. I couldn't hurt you. I couldn't. I couldn't do it. I -- Baby, I'm so sorry. Please --

Angie: Take me to her.

Jesse: She's under -- she's --

Angie: Take me to her. What did you do? What did you do with Ellie?

Jesse: Baby, I will take you to her. She's under a beautiful tree in a beautiful, quiet little spot. I promise.

Angie: I want you to show me.

Dixie: I'd like to explain what you walked in on. I --

Tad: All right? I don't want to know, ok? It's all good.

Dixie: Tad, listen. I thought if I put myself in the same position that I was in when I saw the other woman's hand on the gurney, that I would remember something! That maybe --

Tad: That you put yourself in the same position after everything he has done to you and me, everything he's cost us, all the pain, all the loss, what he did to Kathy?! I can't believe you would ever let that son of a bitch put his hands on you again!

Angie: No! [Cries] Oh, oh, Ellie. Oh, Ellie, Mommy's here, and I'm so sorry, baby girl. I'm so sorry I never got to hold you, never got to kiss you, never got to -- never got to say good-bye. [Sobs]
