Aggie's IMDB Trivia: She became ABC's overall daytime consultant [October 2000]. It was her hand that opened the All My Children (1970) photo album on the shows opening montage sequence from 1970-1989. When she went into labor and had to go to the hospital to deliver one of her children she brought her Dictaphone along so that she could continue working. During the 1960s she simultaneously wrote both Guiding Light (1952) & Another World (1964). This led to a few minor problems such as in the 445th episode of Another World (1964) she wrote in the script that the scene takes place "in the coffee shop of Cedar's Hospital" - Cedar's Hospital is the fictional hospital on Guiding Light (1952). Her memoir, My Life to Live: How I Became the Queen of Soaps When Men Ruled the Airwaves, was released March 21, 2017. Once we were plotting an episode, and I looked down and saw that it was the 6,000th episode of 'All My Children.' So I said to the group, 'Hey, let's knock off and I'll take you to lunch.' When I had come back, for the first time in my life, I had forgotten that I was to have a telephone interview. So I called the reporter...and apologized profusely and explained that we discovered it was our 6,000th episode we were writing. She did some figuring and said: 'Do you realize that if you'd been writing nighttime, you would have been working for 240 years!' If this blog is depressing to you, by all means, do not read it. Personally, I think this is one way we pay tribute to the performers.
INT. MONA LISA - DAY Carter grabs a faint Lisa before she falls do the ground. Scott rushes over to a table nearby and pulls out a chair while Carter drags Lisa to the chair, seating her. Lisa: (faint) Scott? Is it really you? Scott: Yes, Mom. Carter comes back to them with a glass of water. He hands it to Scott, who is now kneeled next to his mother. He holds the glass while Lisa takes a sip. Scott: You all right? Lisa: I will be . . . (strokes his face gently) So glad to see you . . . Lisa then strikes her son across the face. Scott holds his face, which stings. Carter is stunned. Lisa jumps up and hovers over her son. Lisa: How dare you! How dare you do this to me! On Scott totally shocked, CUT TO INT. BARBARA & HENRY'S HOUSE (KITCHEN) Henry, with a chef hat and apron that reads "I rub my meat for two mins," dances around the kitchen while the pots of the stove create a slight fog from the steam. Henry: (singing) Pour it up! Pour it up! That's how we ball out! . . . Strips clubs and dollar bills-- He is abruptly interrupted by a knock at the door. Aggravated, Henry opens the door to reveal his younger sister, CLARK COLEMAN. Henry is speechless. Clark: (distraught) I need your help. On Henry worried CUT TO INT. TOM & MARGO'S COTTAGE - DAY Mo and Casey sit on the sofa making out. Tom then barges in slamming the door. The two break apart like two teens that have been caught in the act. As the rearrange their clothes: Tom: Where is your mother?! Casey: She's at the station. What's wrong? Tom: Emily! Casey: What now? Tom tosses the paper at Casey before he storms up stairs. Casey unballs the paper to see the headline (from last episode) featuring Tom, Carter, and Scott. On Casey cringing, FADE OUT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7m5isq5q04 FADE IN: INT. TOM & MARGO'S COTTAGE - DAY Casey kisses Mo (before she leaves) and closes the door behind her. Tom comes down the stairs, undoing his tie and tossing it to the side. Casey: You sure you're fine? Tom: Do I look fine? (off Casey holding his hands up for mercy) Sorry. Casey: No problem but does this story even has any truth to it? I mean we haven't seen or heard from Uncle Scott since I was child. You sure Emily isn't fabricating this to p*ss you off? Tom: No she isn't. For once she isn't lying in that rag she calls a paper. Casey: (confused) So then I don't get while you're mad at Emily . . . Tom: Because she's ruining my campaign! Don't you see it! Casey: Dad, I doubt anyone is taking Emily or her paper seriously. Her past isn't squeaky clean either . . . Tom: But when you're running up against someone with a stellar track record such as Carter Wallace-- Casey: Dad, you need to chill. Casey goes and sits on the sofa. He pats on it to indicate he wants Tom to join him, to relax. After fighting it, Tom gives in. Casey: Dad, you have a stellar track record too. Tom: I do but-- Casey: Not "buts." Who cares that you left mid office almost fifteen years ago? That was then. This is now. Margo rushes in breathing heavily. Margo: Oh honey! There you are. (rushes over and kisses Tom) I went by the campaign office and Bonnie told me everything. (calming down) You OK? Tom: Not really. Margo: Don't worry, honey. We'll figure this out--me, you, Bonnie, Lisa-- Tom jumps up from the sofa Tom: Mom! I gotta go see her. Margo: We're coming with you. On a shot of the Hughes rushing out, CUT TO INT. BARBARA & HENRY (KITCHEN) Henry and Clark are now seated at a table. We enter mid-convo. Henry is trying to pry some info out of her. Clark: Henry, can you stop! Henry: No! You just come beating down my door and you want me to stop? Clark: Yes. Henry: We haven't heard from you in years! Maddie, me, Bernadette-- Clark: I'm fine. (swiping hair out of face) Can't you tell? Henry: Not really but I'll drop it for now . . . Clark: I just need a place to stay for a few nights-- Henry: What? Hold on--you just come in here and expect to provide you a haven when you can't tell me where the heck you've been for the past five years?! Really, Clark? On Clark moaning, CUT TO INT. MONA LISA Picking up where we left off of Lisa slapping Scott, and both he and Carter stunned: Scott: What was that for! Lisa: For not picking up the phone and calling me! For not visiting me! Your brother-- Scott: Oh I've seen ole' Tom already. Lisa: What? So you've been in town for awhile now! (to Carter) And you knew?! Carter searches for the right words, but before he can get them out, Lisa pops him in the face. Carter now holds his face, shocked. Lisa: Now I see why you were using me--getting close to me. You wanted to stick it to me and Tom. (pointing to Scott) And he's the best way to do so? Scott: He didn't even know I was related you to until the night I arrived in Oakdale. Lisa: Oh really? So how do you two know each other? Scott: We met awhile back in Somerset. I had a small practice there, he was there visiting-- Lisa: So you two became buddies and decided to come here and run for district attorney? Carter: No! I didn't even ask him to join me until weeks after I decided to come to Oakdale. Scott: Exactly. Lisa: (stewing) Oh OK . . . So Tom knew you were here? Scott: Yes. I've been here since Christmas. Lisa: What! Tom, Margo, & Casey come rushing in and up to Lisa, Carter, & Scott. Tom: Mom-- Lisa pops him across the face. Lisa: How could you! (to both of her boys) How could both of you! . . . (enraged, flailing around) How could all of you! Casey and Margo step back, not wanting to feel the wrath of Lisa. On Tom holding his face, now stunned too.
