All My Children Quotes

Ryan Lavery: You want to tell me what the hell you were trying to pull out there?
Kendall Hart Cambias: Did you see Babe? Did you just see what she did? She has the nerve to offer a consolation prize, honorary mommy? What the hell is that? I mean, what could Bianca possibly do with that? Sit and watch Babe be the mother that Bianca will never get to be? It's stupid. It reeks.
Ryan Lavery: Babe was just trying to help.
Kendall Hart Cambias: No, Babe was trying to cover her own butt and make herself look good. She was trying to show what a big heart she has so no one will know what a liar she really is.
Ryan Lavery: What? Where do you get this stuff?
Kendall Hart Cambias: Oh, please don't tell me you can't see it, Ryan, come on. Babe is all about playing the bimbo matriarch of the Chandler clan. When really she a selfish, lying, stupid little bitch.

Erica Kane: You slept with Ryan's brother before you stole the company out from under him?
Kendall Hart Cambias: No, no, I didn't steal it, I didn't steal it. Adam and J.R. did. Ok, but here's the kicker - Ryan tried to convince me earlier today that he's completely over me for good, which, of course, that can't be. I mean, it's impossible, and we are going to prove that. And you know what's so great about you and I doing this together is that you hate Greenlee just as much as I do, so it's perfect! Plus, mother, you are the queen of creativity. You're so creative. I mean, the truth is i'm running out of ideas, but the two of us putting our heads together could be so amazing!
Erica Kane: Kendall, you have to stop. You're talking like a crazy person.
