All My Children Transcript Tuesday 7/2/02
>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Bianca: Don't let Kendall get to you. It is not your fault if she gets what's coming to her.
Kendall: So if somehow I can get access to Erica's place, I could plant a bug or tap into some incriminating e-mail.
Adam: I'm in need of some legal advice. Would a retainer of $100,000 interest you?
Ryan: Happy wedding day. A little coffee with some skim milk and a little bit of sugar.
Kendall: Are you planning on spoiling me like this every day?
Ryan: Well, just for the rest of your life.
Kendall: How did you -- how did you do all of this? How did you do all of this? I didn't even hear you get up.
Ryan: Well, you were zonked out. You were, you know, recovering, I guess.
Kendall: They're so pretty. What does that -- recovering from what?
Ryan: Well, from your nightmares. I mean, they were really bad. You were crying, you were screaming. You don't remember that?
Kendall: No, what -- what did I say?
Ryan: You were screaming for me not to leave you, and I held you, but, you know, you were --
Kendall: Oh. The prison -- the prison door. The guards -- they were pushing me through it. You were there. You were trying to -- you were grabbing for me. You were trying to stop them.
Ryan: Yeah, I will stop them. I'll stop everyone, from the D.A. right down to my father, because you did not set the fire at Erica's house and you will not go to prison.
Kendall: Ryan, Trey thinks that --
Ryan: I don't care what Trey thinks. I'm getting you a new lawyer whose first job is to fight for your innocence.
Kendall: Ok, but Trey knows that he --
Ryan: Forget Trey! He wants you to plead for insanity.
Kendall: Listen, all he wants to do is help me. He's just trying to do his job. He wants to help me.
Ryan: Is he really?
Trey: Rebecca, finally.
Rebecca: Sorry I'm late.
Trey: What do you got for me?
Rebecca: The time line they established for the night of the fire -- Montgomery wants it looked at done over, in fact.
Rebecca: Apparently, Erica Kane is unsure.
Trey: Unsure of what?
Rebecca: From what I've heard, Ms. Kane isn't sure your client had time to set that fire. A big win for your --
Trey: Damn it!
Rebecca: I don't understand.
Trey: No way. No freaking way.
Rebecca: Look, I have to meet the judge in 10 minutes. I've got to go.
Trey: Damn it. I'm not going down for this.
Bianca: So then two of the teachers get on the mike and start singing "Paradise by the Dashboard Light."
Bianca: And it's all on tape.
Chris: So, it was ok?
Bianca: Yeah. It was fun. I think Maggie had a good time, too.
Chris: Oh, good.
Bianca: But I have a feeling that you didn't ask me to breakfast this morning to get a recap of the prom.
Chris: No, no.
Bianca: It's about Mom, right?
Chris: Yeah. Bianca, I'm getting worried. She hasn't had a decent meal in days. Those headaches are getting worse. I ask her what's going on, she doesn't tell me, so I can't figure out what's --
Bianca: I can. It's Kendall.
Chris: Did she tell you that?
Bianca: She didn't have to. I dropped by late last night, and Uncle Jack had stopped by, too.
Chris: Was he filling her in on Kendall's defense strategy del giorno?
Bianca: He was.
Chris: Ok, so now I'm going to fill you in. Kendall says that she overheard you telling me that you plan on lying on the witness stand.
Trey's voice: Liza, this is Trey Kenyon. Thanks for your follow-up call. If you give me your power of attorney and your complete financial records, your husband will never know you took that money from Chandler Enterprises, and he'll never know what you did with it.
Kendall: Ryan, Trey's trying. He's trying. He --
Ryan: Oh, stop, stop, stop. Promise me one thing. Just do one favor for me. No more talk about Trey, no more thinking about Erica, the trial, any of that for -- hmm -- about 24 hours.
Kendall: I keep forgetting I'm going to be a bride today.
Ryan: Maybe this will help you remember.
Kendall: Our rings.
Ryan: Yeah, I picked them up this morning.
Kendall: Where's mine?
Ryan: Well, I was going to wait till tonight, but --
Kendall: Oh, you had it inscribed. Ryan, I didn't put anything on yours.
Ryan: Just read it.
Kendall: "Love always trusts."
Ryan: It's from the Bible.
Kendall: I know. Corinthians. It's perfect. I do trust you. I never thought I could ever trust anybody --
Ryan: I trust you.
Kendall: But I do.
Ryan: I trust you, and I love you always, and tonight, the whole world is going to know it.
Kendall: I wish we could get married in St. Patrick's Cathedral or Notre Dame --
Kendall: So everybody could be there -- everybody, even people we don't know.
Ryan: Well, you're psyched about your mom coming from Florida, right? Alice coming?
Kendall: Yeah. I wish I could say to her, "Hey, Mom, let me introduce you to my friends here in Pine Valley." But since the only person Erica hasn't turned against me is standing in front of me --
Ryan: Oh, oh, no talking about Erica. No talking about Erica. You promised, not today.
Kendall: You're right. You're right. You're all I need.
Ryan: Yeah, me.
Ryan: Now, I have a few loose ends I got to tie up. You going to be ok?
Ryan: Ok. Bye.
[Door opens and closes]
[Knock on door]
Kendall: Couldn't stay away.
Trey: Good morning, Kendall.
Hayley: The old familiar stare of Adam Chandler. So, tell me, who's on your hit list today?
Adam: Hayley, what are you doing here? There's not a problem with Enzo?
Hayley: No, no, no. He's fine. I just had to set up some appointments with his doctors. You were looking pretty intense there. Is Liza ok? Everything's ok?
Adam: Oh, yeah, she's here doing a follow-up with Dr. Greenberg.
Hayley: I know. Winifred told me.
Adam: Then you didn't just run into me?
Hayley: No, not exactly. I -- look, I just wanted to tell you that I am sorry that I kept you out of the loop with Enzo and everything that went on.
Adam: You don't have to apologize to me. I know I'm not at my best in these situations. Sometimes tend to get a little -- I don't know -- overbearing.
Hayley: Controlling, impossible to deal with, overbearing. Yes, yes, just to name a few.
Adam: Anything else?
Hayley: No, that's about it. I was -- I was going to blame it on Liza's illness. I was going to tell you that I didn't want to burden you and take you out of your own personal crisis.
Adam: You don't ever have to do that with me, Hayley.
Hayley: I know. Listen, I want you to know that I think that you are a wonderful grandfather for Enzo. I think you are the best.
Ryan: If I'm interrupting something, you know, I'll come back --
Hayley: No. No, no.
Ryan: The manager at SOS said I'd find you here.
Hayley: Yeah. What's up?
Ryan: Well -- how's the little trooper doing?
Hayley: He's great. He's all prepared for surgery and --
Ryan: Good. Good.
Adam: Well, I -- I have to make a call. If you'll excuse me?
Hayley: Sure, Dad. So, what's doing with you?
Ryan: Well, I wanted to come by and I wanted to tell you I'm -- I'm getting married tonight.
Hayley: You're getting married?
Hayley: Uh -- to whom?
Ryan: What are you talking about? To Kendall.
Hayley: I'm sorry, I -- I knew that you were seeing each other. I didn't know that you were to the marriage point of your relationship.
Ryan: All right, just be happy for me, all right?
Hayley: I am happy for you.
Hayley: Very happy for you. Yeah. I just -- I just -- you know, it wasn't so long ago that Gillian had passed away --
Ryan: I know, I know, and I was sort of giving up on life and all that, but Kendall changed that.
Hayley: Good. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't she about 30 seconds from going to jail?
Ryan: She's innocent. She's innocent, and we're going to prove that in court.
Hayley: Good. Uh -- is she worth all this effort, Ryan?
Ryan: Well, would you trade one minute with Mateo for an easier one with somebody else?
Hayley: Not a chance.
Ryan: No, I didn't think so. We're going to make it. We're going to make it, and then maybe one day we'll have a kid, like you and Mateo.
Hayley: Good. I take it that means that you will be moving to maybe a friendlier place than Pine Valley?
Ryan: Mm-hmm. After we get married and after Kendall clears her name, then we're out of here, and we're not looking back.
Bianca: Chris, you know I wouldn't do that. Lying under oath is Kendall's territory.
Chris: True, but she's convinced that this is a conspiracy, that this is a big frame-up.
Bianca: Why would we even do that? I mean, the evidence against her proves that she's guilty, and she's going to jail, end of story.
Chris: How do you feel about that?
Bianca: Look, I'm not happy that my sister is going to jail, but she set that fire and she almost killed me, and she needs to be put away.
Chris: What about your mom? How does she feel?
Bianca: You know, in spite of all the hideous things that Kendall has pulled, I think she's really getting to Mom.
Bianca: All Mom ever wanted for Kendall was a good life. You know, good parents, two of them -- adults -- who could raise her right. You know, summer camp and piano lessons and birthday parties. Mom was just a kid when Kendall was born. That's why she gave her up, but I think that she's still haunted by that decision.
Chris: Do you think that Kendall could ever understand that?
Kendall: All Kendall can think about is her sick revenge plots, and it's not going to end, and now she's got Mom convinced that she did something wrong.
Chris: Well, in my book, your mom did nothing wrong, Bianca.
Bianca: You know, last night, I could tell that Mom was really upset, and now Kendall's going to say that I'm going to perjure myself?
Chris: Look, if she starts in with that, the judge is going to kick her right out of the court, I'm telling you right --
Bianca: You know what? I can't give her the chance.
Chris: Wait, wait, where are you going?
Bianca: You know, I have to have a little chat with my big sister.
Trey: Are you nuts? What was that for?
Kendall: Yep, that's me -- nuts, crazy, a real whack job.
Trey: Oh, I guess Ryan couldn't convince you to go along with my idea.
Kendall: How dare you discuss my case with him behind my back.
Trey: I'm trying to keep you from spending the rest of your life in prison.
Kendall: That little brat is lying. I will tell them that I heard every word she said.
Trey: Oh, be real, Kendall. You're a convicted perjurer, a prosecutor's dream. I'm sorry, but I just don't see another choice.
Kendall: I do -- another lawyer.
Trey: The trial starts --
Kendall: One who will file a -- what was that thing?
Trey: A continuance.
Trey: The stench of desperation will be pretty ripe.
Kendall: Trey, I don't care.
Trey: I like you, Kendall. Ok? But, unfortunately, not that many people do. God, the jury pool --
Kendall: Yeah, I know, it's tainted. Blah, blah, blah. I
Trey: I am really, really trying to help you here.
Kendall: Trey, I'm getting married in a few hours -- me, married, to a guy like Ryan. Do you understand me? Trey, think. Think, please. Please, isn't there anything else we can do?
Trey: There is one thing. Consider it a wedding present. Go ahead, look.
Ryan: So, come on -- give me a hug for good luck.
Hayley: Absolutely. Oh, Kendall better treat you right.
Ryan: She will.
Ryan: Ooh -- she will.
Hayley: I felt that, my gosh.
Ryan: I'll be right back. Got a phone call.
Hayley: Hey, any word on Liza?
Adam: The nurse said she'll be out in just a moment.
Hayley: Do you mind if I wait with you?
Adam: No, I'd love it. Do you want some coffee or a soda?
Hayley: No, I'm an expert at this waiting thing. You know, I got my trusty pocketbook with all my magazines -- sorry. Gosh.
Mia: This is my friend, Trey. I'm sorry, where are my manners? Trey, Adam Chandler --
Adam: Let me get that for you.
Adam: Mia -- that's it. That's what Stuart was talking about.
Adam: Mia --
Mia: Did someone say my name?
Adam: I was just about to come looking for the two of you.
Liza: Oh, well, sorry it took so long. The doctors --
Ryan: Hi, Liza, Mia. Liza, what are you doing here? You're not here for --
Liza: No, no, everything's fine.
Hayley: Thank God.
Liza: What are you doing here?
Ryan: Well, I came to talk to Hayley, but I'm really glad I bumped into you. Do you have some time for me right now?
Adam: No, you go ahead. I'll wait here with Mia.
Adam: Well, what did the doctors say about Liza?
Mia: Liza is recovering right on schedule.
Nurse: Mrs. Santos, your husband's on the phone for you.
Hayley: Thank you.
Mia: Adam, it's ok. It's good news, right? I know, I know, you probably feel like you're holding your breath every time she comes out from the doctor, but she's --
Adam: No, no, it's not just that. It's -- I know physically she's doing very well, and I'm thrilled.
Adam: Mentally. Mia, Liza is not the woman I married.
Kendall: It's just what I always wanted. It wasn't even on my registry.
Trey: This is an electronic surveillance device.
Kendall: I need a pasta maker.
Trey: You take this, you plant it in Erica Kane's new penthouse, and maybe -- just maybe -- you'll be able to prove that Bianca is trying to set you up. It's easy. It's easy. Here, let me show you.
Kendall: No, I can't.
Kendall: What if I get caught?
Trey: You be careful. You slip in, you plant it, you slip out. No rolling around on the bed, imagining what it would be like to --
Kendall: Very funny, very funny. I have a better idea. Why don't you hire someone to do it for me.
Trey: Oh, no can do.
Kendall: Why not? I'm sure your other client Vanessa can refer you to some unsavory lowlife.
Trey: Because it's illegal. I could get disbarred. Then you really would have to find another lawyer.
Kendall: Will -- will it stand in court?
Trey: Leave the legal maneuvering to me.
Kendall: I don't know.
Trey: This was your idea in the first place.
Kendall: Yeah, but you said it was too risky.
Trey: And it is risky, but it's our only chance. Now, let me break this down for you, ok? They have your lighter, and you had this lovely little confrontation with Erica and Bianca in front of the courthouse just before the fire started, and the nail in the coffin, ladies and gentlemen -- Bianca going to say that she saw you set that fire.
Kendall: Does this really work?
Trey: Yeah, and it's a lot better than a one-way ticket to Oak Haven.
[Knock on door]
Bianca: Listen, Kendall, we have to get a few things straight here.
Liza: Oh. What are we celebrating?
Ryan: Well, who says we're celebrating?
Liza: Well, that grin on your face must hurt.
Ryan: A little obvious maybe? Yeah. Well, I'm getting married today -- tonight.
Liza: Well -- I'm working, but --
Ryan: Oh, oh, oh -- what -- it was just kind of like a spur-of-the-moment thing. It's like --
Ryan: It's not going to be a big -- you know, I would have invited you. You know that, but --
Liza: No, no --
Ryan: You know --
Liza: You can say it -- Adam.
Ryan: Adam --
Ryan: He's not exactly my biggest fan, so --
Liza: Yeah, well, I'm -- I'm happy for you. I'm excited for you.
Ryan: Thanks. I think before you get too happy, I should tell you who the bride is.
Liza: Well, Kendall. I mean, you don't go around getting that kind of bail money for a casual stranger.
Ryan: No, I guess you don't. So go ahead. I'm waiting.
Liza: For what?
Ryan: Come on -- the "she's trouble," "sleep with one eye open," the usual --
Liza: No, no. If she makes you happy, then that's good.
Ryan: I thought I'd get the usual, you know --
Liza: No. Ryan, I think you've forgotten who I'm married to.
Adam: Mia, I don't want to burden you with this now.
Mia: I just -- I can't believe -- I mean, I want to help.
Adam: It's not fair to put you in the middle of this.
Mia: Look, Liza has not changed. She still loves you and she loves Colby.
Adam: Oh, yes, I'm sure. I'm sure she does, but that -- that cufflink incident the other day --
Mia: She's just confused, ok? This whole brain tumor thing has her --
Adam: She was ready to throw both of us out of the house.
Mia: Adam, she never would do that.
Adam: Well, no, maybe she wouldn't. Still, she flat out accused us of having an affair. Mia, I want my wife back. Completely and totally. Maybe that's too much to ask. Maybe -- when she was dying, I asked God to please save her life, and he did. But now -- well, the doctors say privately that there may be problems, there may be confusion.
Mia: You mean like what happened the other night?
Adam: Yeah. Yeah. I -- we're lucky. We're so lucky. I just hope --
Adam: I hope that I can continue doing this -- talking to you, openly and honestly.
Mia: Of course.
Adam: I need you now more than ever, Mia.
Mia: Oh, Adam.
Hayley: Ahem. Hey. I just got off the phone with Mateo, and he's going to swing by with Enzo. You want to wait around and visit with your grandson for a little while?
Adam: Oh, yes. I would love to, but I need to check in to the office. Excuse me.
Hayley: Thank goodness for Mia. You're like Mary Poppins and Dear Abby all rolled into one.
Mia: I don't know exactly what you think you heard --
Hayley: What I heard and what I saw.
Mia: I know you don't like me. Why is that?
Hayley: I liked you fine until you started throwing yourself at my father.
Ryan: I don't think I'm ever going to forget who your husband is.
Liza: Well, you did, for a little while.
Ryan: I wanted your friendship. Especially after Gilly died.
Liza: Do you remember when you first came to work at WRCW?
Ryan: Oh, hey, don't remind me of all that.
Liza: Oh, smooth operator. You didn't do anything aboveboard.
Ryan: Yeah, well, maybe Kendall and I are, you know, made for each other.
Liza: Do you love her?
Ryan: Yeah, I do.
Liza: Well, that's good. You know, this whole brain tumor thing -- it's made me realize that that's the most important thing, and she's very lucky to have you.
Ryan: Thank you. After the trial, after we get married, we're leaving. We're leaving town -- fresh start.
Liza: That's good. That's probably good for both of you.
Ryan: I'll miss you. Do you ever -- do you ever think about, you know, what might have been?
Liza: Yeah, I do. You're going to make a wonderful father one day.
Ryan: Thank you. You know, Gillian always said that --
Liza: Ryan, don't do that to yourself because Gillian would want happiness for you.
Ryan: Yeah, she would.
Liza: So is this good-bye?
Ryan: This is good-bye.
Liza: Good luck.
Kendall: Get things straight? Oh, that's cute coming from you, Binks.
Bianca: Would you please excuse us?
Trey: No, I'll stay.
Bianca: No, I need to speak to my sister alone.
Kendall: Quit giving a recital and just say it.
Bianca: Ok, I hear that you think that there's some sort of plot against you devised by me and Chris.
Kendall: Don't even bother. I was there at the Valley Inn. I heard everything you said.
Bianca: You heard wrong. If you will give me 10 seconds, I will explain to you --
Kendall: You said you were going to lie about me on the stand and say that you saw me set the fire.
Bianca: I said that that's what you would do if the situation were reversed.
Kendall: Oh. You're good. You're Erica Kane's daughter, that's for sure.
Bianca: Ah, there it is. Didn't take long. We're right back to what this is really about. You're jealous, as usual.
Kendall: You see what I have to deal with?
Bianca: You couldn't be a part of our lives, so you thought you would destroy them by burning down our house. But it doesn't matter what our address is, Kendall, I will always have a home with Mom -- not a house, a home, and you won't. So, you know, poor Kendall. You were raised by great parents, by normal parents, by a mother who loved you, so why wasn't that enough?
Kendall: Shut up.
Bianca: Your whole life seems to be about getting Erica to recognize you. You don't even know her.
Kendall: Oh, and you have her all figured out?
Bianca: Myrtle said that you feel cheated out of the life that you were supposed to have, whatever that means.
Kendall: If you don't shut it --
Bianca: Could you please leave us alone?
Trey: Ok. Kendall, remember what we discussed.
Kendall: You were a little girl the last time I left town.
Kendall: So you want to know the real reason I want Erica to recognize me? Listen up.
Bianca: Come on, Kendall, I really want to know. Your whole world seems to be about getting Erica to recognize you, to treat you as her own. What didn't you get from the Harts?
Kendall: They treated me like I was a stay dog they found at the pound.
Bianca: No, they loved you.
Kendall: No, they pitied me, and I knew something was wrong. I knew it. I didn't look like Alice or Bill. I didn't belong.
Bianca: So what, you didn't look like them? What does that --
Kendall: No, I wasn't like them. Something was different. Something was different. Come on, Binks, you know what that feels like, and it was every day of my life. Alice thought I was weird. "Stop looking in the mirror so much." "Why do you put on so much makeup?" "Why do you need a new dress?" I couldn't help it. I couldn't help it. It was in my blood. I was Erica Kane's daughter. What you see is what you get.
Bianca: Do you really think that that's who Mom is? Kendall, you can't even begin to know her -- know her truly, who she really is.
Kendall: Whose fault is that?
Bianca: Don't start this, Kendall, or I'll just --
Kendall: What? You'll what, Binks? You'll lie about me on the witness stand and put me away for the rest of my life? You can't do it. You can't forget that I'm your sister, and Erica can't forget that I'm her daughter, and all the wishing and hoping and lying will not change a thing. I am a part of you, like it or not.
Bianca: I swear, I will do anything to get Kendall Hart away from here -- anything.
Mia: What did you just say to me?
Hayley: You heard me loud and clear.
Mia: You're crazy.
Hayley: Oh, crazy, yeah. I'll give you crazy. They found my father's cufflink in your bed.
Mia: Who told you that?
Hayley: I'm the ears, nose, and throat of this town. I know everything.
Mia: Look, if you knew what really happened, you wouldn't --
Hayley: Oh, I know plenty. I heard that Liza had a real conniption fit. Now, that can't be too good for her health.
Mia: I can take care of my sister.
Hayley: I bet you can. Wouldn't want to muscle in on your territory.
Mia: I am not sleeping with your father.
Hayley: Oh, no. Not yet. You're too smooth for that.
Mia: He's old enough to be my father.
Hayley: Exactly. Isn't that what you're looking for? Didn't your own daddy abandon you so he could shack up with Marian? And you know that my father's a rich old man, and he will cut you a check as soon as he sees your little crocodile tears for your adopted son.
Mia: You leave my son out of this.
Hayley: You know exactly how to play Adam.
Mia: I don't have to listen to this. I'm leaving.
Hayley: Maybe not. You should stop playing your little game, Mia, because I guarantee you will lose.
Ryan: Hey, Princess, I brought you something. I'm here because I want you to know that I'm getting married. Her name's Kendall. I told Liza that -- that she reminds me of you, but she's not you. I mean, that's a good thing. I love her, Gillian. She got hurt a lot in her life, and I guess I want to spend the rest of mine fixing that and maybe doing some of the things that we never got a chance to do together. I want to make her happy, Gillian. As happy as you made me.
Trey: Trey Kenyon.
Kendall: Hey, it's me. Bianca just left.
Trey: Are you ok?
Kendall: No -- yeah. Whatever. Just listen, I heard Bianca on her cell phone right outside my door. She swore that she would do anything to get rid of me.
Trey: Well, what now?
Kendall: Well, I'm going to go up to that construction site and plant the stupid bug and get the proof that I need.
Trey: Ok. Just watch your back.
Kendall: This is my one shot to save myself, and when I do, I'm leaving this place for good so that Erica and Bianca will never be able to set me up again.
Trey: Well, call me when you're all done.
Kendall: I will.
Trey: Pine Valley Police Department? I have good reason to believe that there's going to be a break-in at the Enchantment Headquarters tonight. The construction area on the top floor. I think Erica Kane's building a penthouse up there? That's right. Just a concerned citizen. Good day to you.
Adam: Piece of advice, Kenyon -- when Adam Chandler calls, answer the phone.
Mia: What you're accusing me of is really sick, you know? Liza is my sister. If you think that I can be bought and used, you're wrong. I'm sorry.
Hayley: This is Adam Chandler we're talking about. He will buy you, use you, and put you in the garbage whenever it suits him.
Mia: Your father --
Hayley: Oh, save it.
Mia: You know, you don't know him very well if you think that I could --
Hayley: That's fine. Maybe you're right, but I got news for you, Mia -- I'm going to be watching you, day and especially night.
Adam: Where the hell have you been?
Trey: Adam, been trying to reach you --
Adam: Never mind, never mind, never mind. I want to know everything that Liza is up to -- who she sees, where she goes, and what she does when she gets there.
Trey: But, Adam, I --
Adam: And you, Mr. Kenyon, are the perfect man for the job.
Ryan: We're leaving Pine Valley. I mean, I love it here, I really do, but I -- I think that Kendall deserves a new place, somewhere where we can start our own memories. But you'll always be with me, and I'll be back -- even if it's just to bring you a few gardenias. I love you, Gillian. Always. Good-bye, Princess.
Aidan: I knew you stole that passkey. Why don't you confess. What are you really doing here?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Mateo: Hello, this is Mateo Santos. Who is this?
Adam: Your cover's blown. I know who you really are.
Liza: What happened to the rest of the money?
Mia: I took it.
