Default Hit-testing Multiple Clips

I'm using Flash 8, trying to make a game. The problem is that there is a lot of one movieclip, they happen to be boxes, and basically my issue is trying to figure out a way in which to have one set of collision code work for all the boxes. My original idea was to add a line for each side of the box (Top, Left, Right, Bottom), and which the way my code works i want to disable the ability to move in that direction once you collide with the box. The problem with this is I do not know how to refer to lines made in my movieclip to represent the boundries of the box and not let the moving character go past them.

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {

if (this.hitTest(_root["TopLine"]))
movespeedUp= 11

this is my code for stopping the character from going outside the frame. The movespeedUp is declared at the beggining of the code :

onClipEvent (load){

Basically, my question is how do I refer to the moveSpeedRight property when in another movieclip?
