All My Children Best Lines Friday 9/2/11


Provided By Eva

Cara: It's very sweet of you to ask me to stay, but the sooner I get out of here, the sooner you and Dixie can figure out where you two are and, well, the sooner I can move on from you.

Tad: I said it a million times, but I can't help it. I'm sorry. I had no idea that something like this was gonna happen.

Cara: Getting close?

Tad: Yeah, what do they say about the best laid plans? The plan was three years of playing house together, and then just on to whatever.

Cara: You shouldn't have been so wonderful.

Tad: And you could've done something about being so sweet, funny, caring, gorgeous.

Cara: Ok, not helping.

Tad: Sorry.

Cara: It's ok. Look, I totally got it. When Dixie came back, all bets were off. And obviously I didn't like it, but I got it. One soul mate per customer, right? So I think that you two need some time along together without having to worry about me. And thanks to Agnes Eckhart's friends in high places, you don't need to, because I won't be deported. It's ok.

Tad: Just for the record, I really like worrying about you. I mean, I enjoyed it, but -- I care about you. Dixie or no Dixie, nothing is gonna change that ever.

Cara: Well, I'd like us to be friends again -- like we were before, if that's possible? So I'm gonna -- I need to get this whole divorce thing started, so I think I will take the jet, all of the Picassos, and the Long Island compound.

Tad: As long as I can have the baseball cards, it's fine.

Cara: Hmm. Everything except the Mickey Mantle rookie card.

Tad: Ooh. You drive a hard bargain.

Cara: Yes, I do, don't I? Hmm. Ok, fine. How about this? How about I just take all of the beautiful memories instead?

Tad: Jackson's a really good friend and he's very trustworthy. I'm sure he could draw up the divorce papers for us.

Cara: Ok. Thank you.

Tad: You're welcome, I guess. And thank you.

Cara: I really didn't do anything.

Tad: Yeah, you did. You saved my life.

Cara: Actually, that's what you did for me.

Tad: No, I mean -- come on. Seriously, being married to you? Piece of cake. Heh heh! If the rest of my life was like that, I'd die of happiness. You have any idea what you did for my street cred? I mean, the truth is you saved my life. You taught me to live again.

Cara: I think you're a pro at living life.

Tad: Used to be. That's what people used to say, anyway. And then, you know, the last few years around this place before you came along, things were getting pretty small. And then boom. This wife I neither wanted or expected shows up -- and she picks me up and dusts me off and scares the hell out of me, teaches me how to get excited about life all over again. And for that, you have no idea how grateful I am.

Cara: Whoa.

Tad: I know.

Cara: Whoa. Wow! You just had to bust that word. You did. That's our bad word. Ha ha! I thought you wanted more from me than just gratitude.

Tad: Be careful what you ask for, because sometimes you get it.

Cara: Me, too.

Angie: So it was the placental abruption. There was no miracle. Jesse couldn't save her.

David: I'm very sorry.

Angie: Lucy had been abandoned, so to Jesse, it seemed like it was all part of God's plan: Raising this little girl as our own to replace the baby that we lost.

David: So when Jesse toys with human lives, it's misinterpreting God's plan. But me, I'm committing some great sin, daring to play God myself.

Angie: He was trying to spare me the pain.

David: I know what he was trying to do, but he ended up hurting you anyway -- much worse than if he'd just told you the truth.

Angie: Would you have done any different?

David: I know all about grief, anger, loss, only my little girl didn't die of natural causes. Leora was killed by medical incompetence.

Angie: She had a very serious heart defect, all kinds of complications.

David: Yes, thanks to Joe Martin.

Angie: He did everything he could to save her.

David: No, he didn't. He kept me out of that operating room. He wouldn't bend the rules, even for a moment, just to give me a chance to save my daughter's life. He didn't want to damage his God-almighty reputation. My daughter took her last breaths on that operating table. And as a parent, I needed to know that my child was gone. If somebody had placed a substitute baby in my arms, that would've been an insult to her memory. I'm sorry. I know you're -- this is still fresh, and I'm going on --

Angie: I understand, David.
