Queries first email of me:

$personID = MBS( "" )
$r = MBS( "Addressbook.record.valueForProperty"; $personID; "EmailProperty" )
$count = MBS( "Addressbook.multivalue.count")
$email = MBS( "Addressbook.multivalue.valueAtIndex"; 0)

Query all my URLs:

Set Variable [$personID; Value:MBS( "")]
Set Variable [$Urls; Value:MBS( "Addressbook.record.valueForProperty"; $personID; "URLsProperty")]
Set Variable [$count; Value:MBS( "Addressbook.multivalue.count")]
If [$count > 0]
    #for loop
    Set Variable [$index; Value:0]
        Set Variable [$value; Value:MBS( "Addressbook.multivalue.valueAtIndex"; $index)]
        Show Custom Dialog ["URL"; $value]
        Set Variable [$index; Value:$index + 1]
        Exit Loop If [$index = $count]
    End Loop
End If
