>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Bianca: I loved her. I loved her with all my heart, and you took her away from me.
Leo: I'm just having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that Erica, first of all, let you stay here and then hired me in, like, a second and a half.
Mateo: I am not giving up on my marriage.
Mateo: Look, Proteus, I don't like being spied on. I have proven my loyalty to you. I -- I've more than delivered on everything you've asked.
Proteus: Are you telling me I don't have a right to watch out for my interests?
Mateo: I'm telling you I don't like you tuning in to my personal life. One thing has nothing to do with the other.
Proteus: You are very naive, Mr. Santos. Do you want to move up in this organization or not?
Mateo: Of course I do.
Proteus: Then you must be invulnerable.
Mateo: I am. I have no weak spots. I told you I'm in this 110%.
Proteus: You just threw your marriage out the window.
Mateo: I'll fix it.
Proteus: Will you?
Mateo: Yeah, I will.
Proteus: And your mistress?
Mateo: I said I'll handle everything. Are we okay again?
Proteus: What about your son?
Mateo: What about him?
Proteus: You said you were invulnerable.
Mateo: I am.
Proteus: If you had to choose between keeping your cover with me and saving your son, who would win, Mr. Santos?
Leo: Edible massage oil.
Greenlee: Come again?
Leo: Yeah. I was having a really hard time wrapping my head around the idea of hand cream, so I was talking to some of the dudes down in research, and we came up with an idea for edible massage oil.
Leo: Grape, cherry, and rosemary for those without a sweet tooth.
Leo: You hate it.
Greenlee: No, I don't hate it. I just have to deal with the Lacey's proposal before I start thinking about flavors of edible oil. But you're cute for thinking outside the box, honey.
Leo: You know, I'm not even going to try to kiss you on the neck right now because ever since you took over here, Greenlee, you are completely un-turn-on-able.
Greenlee: I'm running this company, Leo. And until Erica comes back and says otherwise, the fate of this place is on my shoulders.
Greenlee: Do you know how to knock?
Val: Do you know how to listen? I told you Erica wants to shut down Ops until she's available, and yet here you still are.
Leo: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Erica said that she wants to stay open with Greenlee in charge while she's gone.
Val: When pigs fly.
Greenlee: Val, when I need you, I'll buzz you. Got it?
Val: I'm going home, like everyone else in this building. Are you?
Greenlee: Pleasure seeing you as always.
Leo: See you, Val.
Greenlee: Okay, then.
Leo: Okay, then! I'll call that inn. We can squeeze in maybe this weekend --
Greenlee: Leo, I can't go away with you now. Please.
Leo: Val just said that -- that everyone's leaving.
Greenlee: Let them.
Leo: What, and you're going to sit here and run the kingdom alone? Greenlee, what the hell?
Bailiff: Thank you, Your Honor. Will the defendant rise?
Judge: The charge against you, Ms. Kane, is murder in the first degree. How do you plead?
Erica: Not guilty, Your Honor. Bianca, are you here?
Erica: Oh, no.
Erica: Oh. Oh, she's dead.
Erica: Oh, my God. Bianca, what have you done?
Erica: It's Bianca’s locket.
Erica: Yes. I'm sorry.
Chris: The judge asked you a question.
Erica: She did?
Erica: Your Honor, you were saying?
Judge: You seem unusually distracted, Ms. Kane.
Erica: Well, I'm being charged with murder. Should I be otherwise?
Judge: Do you understand the charges against you, Ms. Kane?
Erica: Yes, I do. And I am innocent, Your Honor. I did not kill Mary Frances Stone.
Chris: Your Honor, Ms. Kane is a highly respected, upstanding member of the Pine Valley community.
Chris: Do I get opportunity to finish?
Jack: Your Honor, Ms. Kane was accused of the attempted murder of her former husband, Dimitri Marick, although I believe in that case she used a letter opener --
Chris: Your Honor, please.
Jack: Not a handgun.
Jack: Crime of passion, premeditated murder. Your Honor, if bail is set too low, what might we next expect from this woman?
Chris: Your Honor, my client was suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder at the time, prior to the charges. I'd also like to add that she was exonerated of said charges.
Jack: Your client seems to suffer a great deal, Mr. Stamp. She suffered the loss of a child in a custody battle, so she took it upon herself to kidnap another woman's child.
Judge: All right, Mr. Montgomery. That's enough for today. This is the arraignment, not the trial.
Jack: I'm aware of that, Your Honor. But the defense counsel's attempt to paint Ms. Kane as some paragon of virtue is slightly askew, to say the very least.
Jack: Your Honor, the state believes that Ms. Kane is a very serious flight risk.
Chris: That's ridiculous, Your Honor. Ms. Kane has a teenage daughter to look after, she has a business to run, and we're just two weeks away from Christmas. She's not going anywhere.
Jack: Your Honor, this is all hyperbole. But in an attempt to show the court why bail for Ms. Kane must be set as high as possible, I'd like to enter into evidence exhibit 1-A, a list of items taken from Ms. Kane's premises during the execution of a search warrant.
Chris: You know, I may be a little rusty on my courtroom ABCs, Your Honor, but isn't he just a little bit out of line?
Erica: Coral? Coral?
Erica: Coral, are you here?
Jack: Your Honor, a chemical residue was found in the fireplace in Ms. Kane's living room. Photographic negatives had recently been burned there.
Chris: And what relevance has that to do with bail being set?
Jack: What relevance, Mr. Stamp?
Chris: Yes. Yes.
Jack: Your client's obstructing justice, she's destroying evidence. How far away can a trip to Tahiti be, Your Honor?
Chris: Your Honor, Mr. Montgomery has absolutely no proof to support that last statement. Your Honor, I personally vouch for my client. Ms. Kane is not leaving Pine Valley. Her life and her livelihood is here. We have every intention of winning this case, proving her innocence. Therefore, she can get on with her life right here.
Jack: Your Honor, Adam Chandler, Jr., the last person to see Mary Frances Stone alive, gave a statement to detectives about a locket that she was holding in her hand.
Chris: And what does that have to do with anything?
Jack: Well, it just so happens that this locket was a highly identifiable family heirloom, given to Bianca Montgomery by her father.
Jack: Well, you see, it was never found at the crime scene. So my point is, maybe you can tell me why it was found at your client's living room this morning.
Chris: Your Honor, Mr. Montgomery is doing everything in his power to unfairly influence this court. He is denying my client --
Jack: Her what?
Chris: Her constitutional rights!
Jack: Her what, Mr. Stamp? Her freedom? All evidence points to the fact that she killed a young girl in cold blood!
Erica: Chris, it's Erica. No. But, Chris, something really terrible has happened.
Judge: Bail will be set at $10 million.
Leo: I think I've got it now.
Greenlee: Got what? That this matters to me, that I'm doing an amazing job?
Leo: No, that the queen bee who sits in that chair has absolutely no idea that you've staged a coup and taken over here, does she?
Greenlee: Yeah, right, like I could pull that off.
Leo: No, no. You faked that call from Erica for my benefit, Greenlee, didn't you?
Leo: Greenlee. She didn't okay that Lacey's proposal. And she didn't jump at the chance for you to take over here while she's in court. And she really, really didn't give you the okay to hire me as your personal idea guy, did she?
Greenlee: I saved the Lacey's account. You were here. You heard them. I saved Erica Kane and Enchantment millions of dollars.
Greenlee: Lacey's was going to stop carrying the Enchantment line. Do you get how huge that would have been? Do you get how huge it is that it's not happening because of me?
Leo: Okay, okay. But quit while you're ahead, why don't you? I mean, I know this kind of stuff from the old days in the casinos, Greenlee. You take a huge chance, you get lucky, and you win. And you walk with your pockets full. But if you keep pressing this, your inexperience is going to catch up with --
Greenlee: My what?
Leo: Your inexperience. You're amazing, you're awesome, you're brilliant, and you're gutsy, Greenlee, but you're not Erica Kane, so don't try to be. Okay? Everything that you've done so far up to here is for naught if she finds out you've done this, so just let it go.
Greenlee: Okay. I see. So I stop now in the middle of everything and go away to that country inn and eat porterhouse steaks with you and watch you smoke a cigar and have a brandy in the drawing room?
Leo: Yeah. And make love to me all night long in the beautiful four-poster bed. Yeah, what's so -- what's so awful about that?
Greenlee: It's safe.
Leo: It's what?
Greenlee: I am all about taking chances. It's who I am. I am keeping a multimillion-dollar company afloat and profitable. The stock prices did not flinch this morning, and the C.E.O. is being arraigned for murder. That's because of me.
Greenlee: This is my moment, and I'll be damned if I'm going to give it up now.
Leo: Oh, you are really fired up, aren't you, darling?
Greenlee: Not fired up -- I'm completely turned on.
Leo: Yeah? For what? Huh? For work?
Greenlee: For everything. I want it all, and I can finally have the chance to have it.
Greenlee: Come on, baby. The acting C.E.O. needs a coffee break.
Leo: Oh, yeah? What kind of a coffee break?
Greenlee: The good kind.
Greenlee: Not here. It's sacrilegious.
Leo: Where? Where?
Greenlee: The queen bee's private dressing room.
Leo: Erica Kane's got a private dressing room?
Greenlee: Oh, yeah, baby, with lots of mirrors.
Greenlee: Who is un-turn-on-able now?
Proteus: Mr. Santos?
Proteus: If your loyalty was tested and you were forced to choose between me and your sons, would I still be your first priority?
Mateo: Listen, I don't deal with hypotheticals, all right? And we both know that's not going to go down anyway.
Proteus: All right, all right. Stop getting so worked up, Mr. Santos. You're in my family now. And if you're in my family, your boys are, too.
Mateo: Listen to me. You stay the hell away from my --
[Proteus hangs up]
Hayley: No --
Mateo: Hayley, that's okay.
Hayley: No --
Mateo: He's just -- he's just pushing me over the edge.
Hayley: No, no, no, I can't --
Mateo: He's baiting me.
Hayley: He threatened your sons, Mateo. He threatened my boy. I can't do this.
Mateo: What are -- what are you going to do?
Hayley: I, um -- I'm going to go get my baby.
Mateo: No, no, no, listen --
Hayley: No, no, no, no --
Mateo: Listen, you can't --
Hayley: No --
Mateo: You can't do that because if he sees you go home and you get the baby, he's going to see how scared you are, he's going to know you're in on it, and then we're both dead.
Hayley: No, I -- I can't do this. I won’t. I won't.
Mateo: Hayley, please, just calm down, calm --
Hayley: No, I won't!
Mateo: Listen to me. You know I would never let anything happen to him. Nothing is going to happen to Lorenzo. All right?
Hayley: How can you protect us, Mateo? How, when you don't even know what we're up against?
Mateo: We know he's evil and he believes the worst in people. He believes I'm having this affair with Simone. So we just got to play along.
Hayley: What if he doesn't believe that? What if he -- what if he's just playing you? What if he doesn't believe it at all?
Mateo: If he doesn't -- if he doesn't believe me, then I'm dead. I'd be dead already.
Hayley: What are we going to do?
Mateo: Okay. We -- we got to pretend that we're over. We got to keep it going 24/7. We can't let up because -- unless we're here. Unless we're down here. You realize we're being watched, right?
Hayley: What about your mom and your sister?
Mateo: She's going to be fine. I promise, they're going to be fine.
Hayley: I hate this.
Mateo: I hate it, too.
Hayley: When will we see you? When will the baby and I see you? When are you coming back to us?
Mateo: Everything's going to be fine. I swear, it's just going to be just fine.
Chris: $10 million? Your Honor, that's outrageous!
Judge: Do you want me to hold you in contempt, Mr. Stamp?
Chris: No. But I would like the court to show a little more compassion for my client.
Judge: Mr. Stamp?
Chris: Yes, Your Honor?
Judge: Your client is a woman of means. Because of that --
Chris: And because of that, she's persecuted?
Judge: Excuse me?
Chris: Because she's a successful woman, you have to set her bail at an unrealistic amount? That's unconscionable!
Judge: I think you might want to temper your tone with me, Sir. Isn't it true that Ms. Kane has a private jet at her disposal?
Jack: Yes, Your Honor, it is true.
Chris: We'll ground it. Just lower the bail.
Erica: Chris, may I speak, please?
Erica: Your Honor, I will meet the bail requirements.
Judge: Good. There's one more thing. If you meet bail, you'll be fitted with an ankle cuff. Your movements are to be confined solely to your home and your office.
Chris: Your Honor, I feel that this court has been unduly biased against my client.
Erica: It's all right. I understand, Your Honor. And I thank the court for its kindness.
Judge: Mr. Stamp.
Judge: You're remanded to the custody of this court until and if you can meet the bail requirement. We're adjourned.
Bailiff: All rise.
Jack: I want to talk to you.
Chris: Are you for real?
Jack: This is not about the case. It's about Bianca.
Chris: Look, why don't you just back off, Jackson.
Erica: What about her?
Jack: She's my niece. What happens to her -- it matters very, very much to me.
Erica: Well, I will take very good care of my daughter, thank you.
Jack: I understand there was a scene between you and Bianca out in the hallway before the arraignment. What was all that about?
Chris: That's not your business, Jackson. Not anymore.
Jack: Really? Do you know, Chris, that my niece just about killed herself because she stopped eating? And she stopped eating because she was afraid of losing her mother.
Erica: Bianca will never lose her mother.
Jack: Who's taking care of her right now, Erica? Who's going to take care of her if you're convicted?
Erica: I am. And how dare you.
Jack: Erica -- where's your daughter right now? Why isn't she here, supporting you? Did you think for one minute what this would do to her?
Erica's voice: You have begged me to try to understand you. I am trying. Believe me, I am trying. And I have told you many times -- I don't understand how you could have the same feelings for a woman that I have for a man.
Bianca: Oh, God.
Bianca: You killed her, damn it! Damn you! Damn you! Oh! You -- you -- you killed her! You killed her! You killed her because she loved me, because she wasn't like you and I'm not like you! I -- God! I hate you so much! I hate -- I hate -- I hate you! I hate you! I -- I hate you! I hate you! I hate you!
Chris: Why don't you leave her alone? She's been through hell already.
Erica: It's all right, Chris.
Chris: Look, he's the prosecutor. You don't have to listen --
Erica: I need a moment alone with Jackson.
Erica: No, I mean it, Chris.
Jack: Thank you.
Erica: Go ahead. Just tell me what you want to say. It's just the two of us, no witnesses. Why don't you just tell me what it is you really want to say to me.
Jack: You know, Erica, I always thought I knew you. You've always been selfish and self-centered regarding everything and everybody except Bianca. When she stopped eating, when she literally tried to starve herself to death, you wouldn't let her. You sat with her day and night. You willed her to live with all the care and love that you have inside of you. And when she told you that she was gay, you thought you could make that go away. My point is, you would do anything for your daughter. My question is, would you even kill for her?
Erica: I will tell you, Jackson -- I swear on my life I did not kill Frankie Stone.
Jack: I wish I could believe that. I really do.
Greenlee: Man, Bianca --
Greenlee: What were you thinking?
Leo: Greenlee, shh.
Greenlee: I mean, look at this. Your mom is going to have a cow.
Greenlee: Okay. Should I call someone, like, at Oak Haven?
Bianca: No, not now. I'm fine, I'm fine. Don't call anybody. Just go away.
Leo: No. Just -- Greenlee, you were just leaving, right?
Leo: Yeah, you were.
Greenlee: Okay, fine. First it was Binky. Then it was Laura. Now it's Binky again. Fine! Fine.
Mateo: You're not taking my kid.
Hayley: Already got him.
Mateo: Is he at my mom's house?
Hayley: No, and I'll let you do the honors with Mamacita. I'm sure she'll be very proud of your affair!
Mateo: Where's Lorenzo, Hayley?
Hayley: Safe. He's away from you.
Mateo: I'm telling you -- I don't know what you're doing in there, but you're not taking my kid.
Hayley: You did this to us, Mateo! You!
Mateo: You know what? I can take care of him. You go on to your little TV show, your little life --
Hayley: Where are you going to take care of him, Mateo? Where, the back room of your bar with your barmaid girlfriend?
Mateo: I'll get help, and I'll do better by him than you ever did.
Hayley: I raise my child!
Mateo: Oh, yeah. Do you?
Hayley: Oh, what is this, Mateo?
Mateo: Do you raise him?
Hayley: What is this? You dump me and -- and you're going to --
[Knock on door]
Hayley: Take my child away so you can --
Hayley: Oh, are your ears ringing, Sweetheart?
Simone: Look, I know this isn't a good time --
Hayley: Get her the hell out of my home!
Simone: Look, you promised to take care of me, and I need that -- now.
Hayley: Oh, he's paying you? Oh, well, how does it feel to be my husband's whore? A word to those who like to be fashionably late to parties.
Simone: What did you call me?
Hayley: A whore. My husband's whore.
Simone: Oh, that's nice.
Hayley: That's okay. You can have him. He's all yours.
Simone: Are you going to let her talk to me this way? Huh? You are a snake, Mateo.
Mateo: All right, listen. Here. Check yourself into the Valley Inn.
Hayley: Ooh, big spender. Does that make you feel all warm and snuggly, Simone?
Simone: Call me.
Leo: You want to tell me what happened?
Bianca: You know, Leo, I wish that you had known my dad.
Leo: Yeah, I wish I'd known him, too.
Bianca: I don't know if he ever really knew who I was, but, God, he made me feel like he did. I had so many chances to come out to him. I had so many, Leo.
Leo: Yeah, but didn't you say that -- that you thought that he always knew?
Bianca: Yeah, but I never said it. Do you understand how much it would mean to me now if I had just told him and if his only response was "I love you"?
Leo: That's what you always wanted from your mother, right?
Bianca: She couldn't do it. You know, if he hadn't have died, I would have moved back to Seattle with him, and I would have never met Frankie, and none of this would have ever happened. Do you realize that?
Leo: Bianca, you can't blame yourself for Frankie dying.
Bianca: Leo, she didn't die. She was killed. She was murdered. I'm the one who did it.
Erica: You think I went to Frankie Stone's bedroom intending to kill her?
Jack: I don't think many people are born with the innate ability to kill people. I think it's acquired. But I think what happened is that all the care and fierce devotion you feel for Bianca welled up inside of you and spilled over and the only way you could figure to save your little girl was to kill Frankie Stone.
Erica: I did not kill her. But I will take this to my own grave -- Frankie Stone was a liar and a con artist. And had she lived, she would've destroyed Bianca’s soul. But I did not kill her.
Jack: You know, there's one thing you never really understood about Bianca.
Erica: Oh. What is that?
Jack: How difficult it was for her to tell you who she is.
Erica: I know who my daughter really is, Jack.
Jack: Do you really? It's been almost a year since she came out to you, Erica, and you're no closer to accepting that now than you were then. And you know why she told you, why she felt she had to? She told you so she could keep you. She wanted to live her life, to be herself. That was her dream. And she wanted to share that dream with the one person that she loved more than anybody else, and that's you. And that's why you fought it so hard, and that's why you went so far as to commit murder. Because, Frankly, I think you were a little bit afraid that you were going to lose her love to somebody else.
Erica: No. Jack -- you are so out of line.
Jack: Am I really? Then you tell me -- when you pointed that gun at Frankie Stone, what were you really trying to kill, Erica?
Erica: Oh, stop this!
Jack: Come on, I want you to tell me. What were you really trying to do?
Erica: It wasn't like that, Jack! Look, I have no idea what you are trying to say.
Jack: Oh, yes, you do. You know exactly what I'm trying to say.
Mateo: I got to know how I can reach you.
Hayley: No, actually, Mateo, you don't.
Mateo: I've got rights. I've got a right to see my son.
Hayley: Your rights expired when I caught you having sex with your whore on my sofa that I paid for.
Mateo: Oh, yeah? Well, that never would've happened if you hadn't been such a neurotic --
Hayley: You paid for your lap dance, Mateo. Go to the Valley Inn. Go collect.
Leo: Are you saying that -- that you --
Bianca: I'm saying that I fell in love with her, Leo, and that's why she's dead. I loved her. She loved me, too. I could tell she did. You know, I don't remember anything that happened after I walked in and I found her in bed with J.R. so I asked my mother because she was there. She found the body, remember?
Bianca: It was more than that.
Leo: What do you mean?
Bianca: She hated Frankie. She would've done anything to keep us apart, anything it took.
Leo: Whoa, whoa -- wait. Are you saying that your mother -- oh, my -- oh, my God.
Bianca: She killed her. She killed her, Leo. My mother killed Frankie.
Jack: Frankie Stone represented everything in Bianca that you don't like and couldn't change. Everything.
Erica: Is this a preview of your defense, Jack? All this impassioned advocacy for a girl who was out to get my daughter from the minute she came to this town? This is a joke.
Jack: Oh, I assure you, this is not a joke.
Erica: No, you're right. This is personal.
Jack: It's personal?
Erica: I can't believe the way you went on the attack after me today in this courtroom. You went for the jugular. And this is just an arraignment. This isn't even a trial. But we were lovers, and you are Bianca’s uncle. So you have no loyalty whatsoever left? Is that it?
Jack: No. An innocent girl is dead, Erica. That's it.
Erica: And I'm not in love with you anymore. And that's really it. Because you have never forgiven me for treating you like --
Jack: Like what?
Erica: Like my daughter's uncle.
Jack: Well, thank goodness. The Erica Kane I know and love is back. A girl is dead, your daughter is shattered, and all you can do is -- is rehash my unrequited love for you? Classic Erica Kane, ladies and gentlemen. Frankie Stone is dead. Now, you tell me that you're not responsible.
Erica: Not in the least.
Jack: You know, Erica, you haven't shown the least bit of remorse over the death of this girl. Not the least.
Chris: Time's up, Montgomery.
Jack: Well, Stamp, for once, you're absolutely right.
Chris: You okay?
Erica: Uh -- I have a headache.
Chris: It's no wonder. Let me see if I can find an aspirin for you, okay?
Erica: Okay. Thanks.
Erica: It's working. They all think I'm guilty. My baby is safe.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Greenlee: You're out.
Erica: No, Greenlee, you are out.
Bianca: There's this huge chunk of my memory that's missing, and I have to force it out.
Tad: Thank God you're on a date.
Adam: I'm not going to let J.R. down. That tough love thing was an act.
Mia: He's here. What do you want me to do?
