>> Previously on "All My Children" --
Boyd: If you're going to take Michael down, I want in.
Michael: So, what do you think Erica did with Boyd's formula?
Lena: I have no idea.
Michael: Well, what about her penthouse? Does she have a safe in there? I'm sure your little lover will let you in.
Edmund: I'm not giving this guy another chance to get at my daughter. When he shows up at Wildwind, all he's going to find is me.
Michael: 20% -- that's the target figure, and I want it by the end of the day. Look, my future with Cambias Industries is riding on this, so nothing can go wrong.
[Knock on door]
Michael: All right, listen, you have your orders. Follow them. Idiot.
Kendall: I got your phone call. You sounded panicked.
Michael: I warned you about crossing me. If you're deceiving me, Kendall, I'll make sure you wish you'd never left the swamps of Florida.
Kendall: All right, you know what? Take a deep breath, Michael. Take a deep breath. I've thought of nothing but our plan since I last saw you.
Michael: Mm-hmm. Yeah, even when you were kissing on Boyd Larraby? Yeah, I saw you.
Kendall: You were watching? Hmm. I wish I'd have known. I would have enjoyed it a lot more.
Michael: This is funny to you, is it?
Kendall: You know, actually, I find it quite erotic. The thought of you watching me kiss another man -- mmm, I love that.
Michael: Do you know what's at stake here? Do you?
Kendall: Yes, I do know what's at stake for you, and I could care less. I'm in this for myself. Everything I've ever wanted is very close to my grasp, and I'm going to see it through.
Michael: Yeah? Then why the hell did you go see Larraby?
Kendall: To see if I can get him to trust me again.
Michael: What for? We don't need him anymore. We're past that. I don't need you sucking up to him. Remember that. Erica's applied for the patent. The formula is legally hers. So why did you go to see him?
Kendall: What, we're not even going to try to steal it from him?
Michael: I'm approaching that from a different angle. See, by the end of the day, I'm going to own 20% of Enchantment. That will guarantee me a seat on the board of directors.
Kendall: Ok. Then what?
Michael: Well, then I convince them that Erica isn't fit to run Enchantment and they put me in charge.
Erica: And we'll have some oatmeal and some scrambled egg whites and some whole wheat toast.
Waiter: Fresh orange juice?
Erica: Yes, of course.
Jack: My, my, we brought an appetite to breakfast this morning, haven't we?
Erica: Well, this is all for you. Your doctor said that if they released you today, then I would have to take excellent care of you. Oh, you can bring me a half a grapefruit.
Waiter: Fresh coffee?
Erica: Yes, please, for me. But herbal tea for Mr. Montgomery.
Jack: Thank you. Half a grapefruit? And if I fall down, who's going to pick me up?
Erica: I will. Always. June.
June: You can't fool me, Erica.
June: This looks like a cozy tete-a-tete between two lovers who've discovered each other again. Nothing like getting shot to stoke the fires of passion, huh?
Erica: June, this is Jack's very first outing since being released to the -- please go away. I will give you an exclusive, just not today.
June: Of course. Jack, do get some rest.
Jack: Thank you, June.
June: I'll call you to set something up.
Erica: I am so sorry.
Jack: Don't apologize. I know how much the world loves you.
Erica: Well, I would settle for just you -- and Bianca.
Bianca: Ok. Just swing in. Shut off the alarm.
Lena: Oh, my goodness. This place belongs in a magazine.
Bianca: Yeah, it's beautiful, isn't it?
Lena: Oh, look at the view.
Bianca: But quite honestly, I liked our old place better.
Lena: Oh, yes, I heard about that -- how it got destroyed in the fire. Didn't it start in your room?
Bianca: Yeah, but I -- I didn't set it, I swear.
Lena: Oh, no, of course you didn't.
Bianca: Oh, no, no. I was kidding. When I was a little girl, I found out that my mother was betraying my father. She was having an affair with Uncle Jack. And I got very angry, and I set my Uncle Jack doll on fire. It burned down the house. Nothing's ever been the same since.
Lena: You're making me feel guilty because of what happened last night when you got back.
Bianca: You mean when I saw Michael leaving your room?
Lena: Bianca, I thought I explained.
Bianca: Yes -- that he wanted you to spy for him at Enchantment and that you said no.
Lena: You sound like you don't believe me.
Bianca: What, that you sent him away unsatisfied?
Lena: No. That I love you.
Derek: Thanks, Joe. Make sure every entrance to this hospital is secure. We got a little girl who witnessed a murder. The killer tried to take her out once already. He's not going to stop trying.
Maddie: Where's daddy?
Edmund: I'm right here, sweetheart.
Edmund: Hi, baby. Joe, could I use one of the cubicles?
Joe: Of course. Right here.
Maria: Is everything ready?
Edmund: You know what, sweetheart? This morning, you're going on a really neat adventure.
Maddie: What kind of adventure?
Edmund: Well, you're going to go on a trip with mommy and Aidan.
Maddie: Where are you going to be?
Edmund: Well, I'm going to be home at Wildwind. But when you get home --
Maddie: No! I don't want to leave. I don't want to leave you and Sammy. Please, daddy. Please, daddy, don't make me go.
Kendall: Now that's a bold plan. Just how do you plan to get between Erica and her board?
Michael: Oh, I intend to let my partner, the future Queen of Enchantment, do the honors.
Michael: Mm-hmm. See, there was that incident with the letter opener --
Kendall: Michael, you --
Michael: Where you accused her then-husband of raping you and she stabbed him.
Kendall: Yeah, but she was suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder. That was from her last --
Michael: Exactly, exactly. See, you can drive her to an act of insanity.
Kendall: That was a long time ago.
Michael: Oh, what's changed? You're still capable of pushing her buttons like no one else, right?
Kendall: So you want me to purposely provoke Erica in public so that she'll lose it in front of everybody?
Michael: You're just not a pretty face after all, are you? Let's see -- right now Erica's having breakfast with Jackson Montgomery at the Valley Inn. Now, I have a TV reporter showing up there. She thinks she's meeting a high-powered executive, but, actually, she's there to be a witness.
Kendall: A witness to what, exactly?
Michael: A witness to a scene that will convince the Board of Enchantment that Erica's become unhinged and that she should go.
Kendall: Wow. Give me five minutes to get dressed. This is going to be fun.
Michael: Oh, yeah.
Kendall: Very fun.
Bianca: I have a habit of falling for women who seem to care about me, but --
Lena: Bianca, I do care about you.
Bianca: And I care about you. But, I mean, honestly, Lena, we don't really know that much about one another.
Lena: How can you say that? Yesterday, we got so close. I mean, I thought we did.
Bianca: Well, so did I.
Lena: We do know each other, Bianca. We know what's important and -- but there will be plenty of time for us to find out our favorite colors and the best book we ever read.
Bianca: Or how you got that little scar.
Lena: Bianca, I think we're lucky that we've got beyond just facts.
Bianca: Yeah. Like the way that a person can move you and you don't even know why or how.
Lena: Exactly. I think that's just how people fall in love at first sight.
Bianca: Yeah. Even against their better judgment.
Lena: You know, I really believe in kindred spirits.
Bianca: You know, we should -- we should really get to work.
Lena: Oh. All we have to do is put this in the fridge.
Bianca: You know, it was really so sweet of you to think of this -- about having everything all set up for mom and Uncle Jack when they come home.
Lena: Well, your mother means a lot to me.
Bianca: Does she remind you of your mother when she was alive?
Lena: Well, you know, Erica made me feel very much at home at Enchantment.
Bianca: Well, I will be sure to tell her when she gets home just who's responsible for all these goodies.
Bianca: Oh, go ahead. Answer that.
Michael: Where are you?
Lena: Yes --
Michael: Are you at Erica's? Did you get it?
Lena: I'm working on that right now. I can probably overnight it to you.
Michael: Just remember your mother's future depends on you. I wonder how long she'll last when she's been convicted of spying for the communists.
Lena: Yes, I have that in my active file. There's no need to bring it up right now.
Michael: Results, Lena.
Lena: You'll have what you want.
Bianca: Everything ok?
Lena: Oh, yes. Just some dreary accountant. With them, it's life or death.
Bianca: Oh. Wow. You poor thing.
Lena: That's ok. Where's the kitchen?
Bianca: Oh, this way.
Lena: Um -- what happened to the flowers we got for your Uncle?
Bianca: Oh, are they -- are they still in the car?
Lena: Oh, would you mind getting them? I think they're probably in the back seat, or maybe they fell on the floor.
Bianca: You want me to get them?
Lena: If you don't mind.
Lena: Ok. The key's in my bag.
Bianca: I'll be right back!
Edmund: Honey, it's going to be great. You're going to go to a really awesome place with Aidan and mommy.
Maddie: If it's so great, how come you're not coming with us?
Edmund: Because I have to stay at home and help the police catch that bad guy that you saw in the park.
Edmund: Oh -- everything will be all right. I promise.
Maddie: I don't want the bad man to hurt you, too.
Edmund: Oh, sweetheart, he can't hurt your daddy. Besides, I'm going to be surrounded by a lot of policemen, so I'll be safe enough.
Maddie: I'm scared.
Maria: Oh, sweetie, it's ok.
Maddie: I'm sorry, mommy.
Maria: Why? What do you have to be sorry about?
Maddie: I shouldn't have ran off in the park. I'm old enough to know better, and --
Edmund: Hey -- hey, hey, hey. No. No, no, no. None of this is your fault. You didn't do anything wrong.
Maria: None of it. No, sweetheart. And you know what? This is going to be really great. I'm going to be with you every minute. I'm going to wake up with you in the morning. I'm going to go to bed with you at night. You're going to be bored of me. And Aidan's going to be there, too. It's going to be really fun.
Maddie: I don't want Aidan. I want you, daddy.
Edmund: I want you to be with Aidan, ok? All right, sweetheart, Aidan -- Aidan loves you, and he's going to take good care of you. I trust him. And if I trust him, then you should, too.
Maddie: Ok, daddy.
Maria: Good girl.
Edmund: That's a good girl. Now come here, sweetie. Come here. Come here, sweetie. And I promise you this -- you are coming home to me, ok? Because I am never, ever going to lose anyone I love again.
Maria: It's going to be so good. We're going to make it fun --
Derek: Edmund, it's time.
Edmund: Sweetheart, would you hold on to something for me?
Edmund: It's a St. Christopher's medal that -- my mother gave it to me.
Maddie: Why? Is it magic?
Edmund: You don't know the story? St. Christopher was a world traveler, and he used to help people across a stream that was very dangerous. But instead of just guiding them across the stream, he actually carried them on his shoulders.
Edmund: So they wouldn't hurt themselves. And then one day, there was a young boy that needed a ride home, and St. Christopher carried him across on his shoulders, but he got heavier and heavier as he started to cross. He thought the weight was going to crush him. And finally he got to the other side, and the boy told him who he was.
Maddie: Who was he?
Edmund: He was Jesus, and he was so heavy because he bore the whole weight of the world on his shoulders.
Edmund: Yeah, wow. So I want you to hold on to this, ok? And I want you to know that as long as you have this, nothing bad is going to happen to you because we're going to protect you.
Maddie: I love you, daddy.
Edmund: I love you, too, sweetheart.
Kendall's voice: Bianca, your girlfriend is sleeping with my boyfriend. The only reason Lena's with you is because Michael told her to seduce you. What was she doing sneaking into Michael's condo in the middle of the night? I saw her with my own eyes. Has Lena ever acted weird? Has she ever tried to gain access where she doesn't belong?
Man: I could get fired for this. The hidden cameras in the penthouse are to be used only in the event of an emergency.
Bianca: You know that I'm Erica Kane's daughter.
Man: I know that, but she didn't say anything about anybody coming in --
Bianca: Be quiet, be quiet.
Bianca: Don't do it, Lena. Please, if I mean anything to you, don't do it.
Jack: So, Erica, why don't you just give Bianca a call?
Erica: Because she'd hang up on me. Oh, Jack, her response is always the same. When Bianca falls for the wrong person, she blames me.
Jack: Well, maybe you should just let her get over it.
Erica: Well, Jack, I'm not mad at Bianca. I mean, that's not the point. Look, if Bianca were standing on the railroad tracks and a train were bearing down on her --
Jack: She would hear it and she would get off of those tracks.
Erica: Well, maybe. But I wouldn't just assume that. I would warn her.
Jack: Of course you would. But Bianca is an adult, and adults make mistakes, especially when it comes to affairs of the heart.
Erica: Well, there's nothing that Bianca could have done about this -- nothing whatsoever -- because Lena is really good. I mean, Lena fooled even me at first.
Jack: You're positive that you're right about this and Bianca's wrong?
Erica: About Lena?
Erica: Lena is heartless, she is without conscience, and she is exploiting Bianca.
Jack: Well, you warned Bianca and Kendall has warned Bianca, so maybe you should just leave it alone.
Erica: What do you mean?
Jack: Maybe Bianca realizes that she's on the road to heartbreak. Maybe she thinks it's worth it.
June: Well, where is the rep from global network? Are we being stood up?
Woman: No one at global network's ever heard of him.
June: What? I bet Liza did this. I bet she set me up so I'll sign my new contract.
Woman: This isn't Liza's style, and you know it.
June: Well, somebody set me up. Who?
Erica: That despicable man.
Jack: Who? What?
June: It's not a total loss. I just might have a story that'll make Liza sweeten her offer. Herman, where are you? Yes. Good. Well, meet me at the Valley Inn. Yes, breaking news.
Woman: Herman, your cameraman?
June: If I'm lucky, I'll open the 5:00 news tonight.
Woman: What do you think is going to happen?
June: All those daggers flying between Erica Kane and Michael Cambias -- he's trying a hostile takeover of Enchantment and his date happens to be Erica's discarded, Kendall Hart. I'm betting that Erica won't make a graceful exit. I just hope Herman gets here before first blood.
Michael: Well, we have the attention of Erica and ms. Landau. You're on.
June: Oh, not yet, not yet. Wait for Herman.
Kendall: Jackson, you've made an awfully quick recovery.
Jack: Thank you so much for your concern, Kendall.
Kendall: Thank God the bullet missed your heart. Was it by any chance posttraumatic stress syndrome?
Erica: Excuse me?
Kendall: Well, those nasty hallucinations of yours -- were you afraid that Jackson would hurt you? Is that why you shot him?
Herman: What's so --
June: Shh. There.
Herman: Erica Kane?
June: Start rolling. Things are about to get good.
Erica: Have you lost your mind?
Kendall: Oh, I'm not the one with the history of mental illnesses. That would be you. I just heard that you were back together with Jack and I heard he'd been shot, and I figured you were behind it.
Jack: That's absurd, Kendall.
Erica: And she knows that. She's just baiting me.
Kendall: Why would I do that?
Erica: To amuse your pimp, perhaps? Tell me, what services do you provide him when you're not trying to seduce one of my employees?
Kendall: Nothing that you wouldn't have provided if Michael had --
Jack: All right, Kendall, I want you to get out of here. I mean now, now, before I have you --
Erica: Jack? Jack? Jack?
Bianca: Everything that Kendall said was -- everything Kendall said was true.
Man: Are you all right?
Bianca: Just turn it off. Turn it off, ok? I've seen enough. Wait a minute. What are you doing?
Man: I'm calling the cops.
Bianca: No. Don't do that. Hang up.
Man: But that woman in there just stole the combination to Ms. Kane's safe and she's ransacking --
Bianca: I know what she did, ok? I saw it with my own eyes.
Man: What should I do? Anything?
Bianca: No. I'll take care of this.
Maria: It's beautiful, and it says "protect us" on the back. How apropriate.
Derek: Edmund, I don't want to rush you --
Edmund: Ok, I'm coming. I'll be right back.
Aidan: I'm going to go, too.
Derek: I'm sorry, but the longer we wait --
Edmund: Police escort waiting?
Derek: The squad car is outside.
Edmund: All right.
Derek: I have to tell you, though, this doesn't feel right to me.
Edmund: Derek, Maria and I agreed the safest thing to do is to get Maddie out of here and hide her somewhere.
Derek: All right, I know, while you pretend to take her to Wildwind.
Edmund: All right, well, she witnessed a murder, ok? The killer was here to finish off the job. All right, now, what do you think? You think --- you think he's going to stop before he finds her?
Derek: I understand.
Edmund: Don't tell me that the police are doing everything they can. That's not the point.
Derek: Look, we can get this guy without you having to risk your life.
Edmund: How? You have a better way to flush him out?
Derek: Just be careful. Don't make me regret this.
Aidan: You know, for what it's worth, Edmund, if Maddie was my daughter, I'd -- I'd do the same thing.
Edmund: I'm counting on the fact that you would die for her. For both of them.
Aidan: I'll do whatever it takes.
Edmund: Thank you for what you're doing for my family.
Aidan: I promise you, I will not let you down.
Edmund: Oh, look what I've got.
Maddie: A laundry cart?
Edmund: Well, not just any laundry cart. This is a super-duper highway laundry cart that's going to take you to a special place.
Maddie: What special place?
Edmund: It's a surprise, so I can't tell you.
Maria: But I think it's going to be pretty fun. I, actually, cannot wait to go to this special place. It's going to be exciting. There's Aidan, the laundry man.
Maddie: You're in costume?
Aidan: Ready to play a game?
Edmund: Yes, he is in costume.
Maria: Now what do you suppose is in that cart, Miss Maddie?
Edmund: It's just towels right now, but you and mommy are going to go inside and cover yourselves up.
Maddie: Me and mommy in the towels?
Edmund: Uh-huh. Well, of course, if you think it's, like, kind of boring, we could always take a taxi.
Maria: That's so not fun.
Maria: This is way better.
Edmund: You have to be very, very quiet.
Maria: Very quiet, sweetie.
Edmund: Ok. Cover you up. There you go. That's very --
Maria: Where'd she go?
Edmund: Shh. That's good. Your turn.
Maria: Try not to worry. I'll take care of her. Please take care of yourself. Our kids need you.
Maria: All right, you. You are hogging all the towels in there, so move over. Move over.
Maddie: Come on in.
Maria: I'm coming on in.
Edmund: You ready to go, sweetie? You ready?
Lena: Ooh. Erica's fridge is now fully stocked.
Bianca: Oh. Gosh, you work fast. Did I tell you how sweet I think this is of you to think of this?
Bianca: You have a good heart. Even though I don't know you very well, I should believe that. Right?
Lena: Bianca. Listen, I will make sure that from now on you get to know me -- I mean really know me. It's going to be my number one priority for as long as we're together.
Bianca: As long as all that, huh?
Lena: Listen -- I'll make sure that from now on you never doubt that everything that I tell you is the truth, ok? Do you remember when you came to the airport when I was about to leave the country? You told me that you felt we were worth fighting for. You just didn't want to do it alone.
Bianca: Yeah. Well, I get emotional at airports, and goodbyes are my specialty.
Lena: No, no, no. I know you meant it.
Bianca: You know, you never told me why you were going to leave.
Lena: Oh. Michael was pressuring me to spy for him, and my first instinct was to pack my bags and go. But then you came and you made me realize how much I was going to miss. Anyway, the question isn't why I was leaving but why I stayed. Bianca, I stayed for you.
Bianca: You know what? We should -- we should really get going because my Uncle Jack and my mom are going to be back really soon and they're definitely going to want their privacy. You ready?
Erica: Jack? Jack, should i call a doctor?
Jack: No. No, I just -- I just got a little winded.
Jack: I stood up too fast.
Erica: No, I should've taken you home straight from the hospital.
Kendall: Is there anything I can do?
Erica: You can get out of our sight.
Herman: So far, we got a guy who fainted.
June: Keep shooting. Believe me, this isn't over yet.
Michael: Come on, come on, come on. Don't blow it now, Kendall.
Kendall: You think this is my fault? This is not my fault. What the hell is he doing out of the hospital? What, you lose one man, now you have to bring your new man around, parade him around for all the world to see?
Erica: Oh, Kendall, every time I think that we're making progress, you just -- you just dash all my hopes. I mean, you live and breathe to wound me.
Jack: The two of you just lower your voices, please?
Kendall: I'm trying, Jackson. I'm sorry. I'm just trying to warn you. Obviously you haven't been around her long enough to know how she really is -- grasping and needy and utterly selfish.
Jack: That is enough, Kendall.
Kendall: No, you know what? She's going to hurt you. One way or another, she's going to hurt you. Trust me.
Erica: Stop it. Not another word.
Kendall: I mean, look at what she did to Chris Stamp. He was a healthy, sane man, and where is he now? Gone. I don't see him now.
Erica: I am not going to tell you again.
Kendall: Ah, yeah, you do a great little act, don't you, Erica? She does a great little act. But you know what? That poor, little, hurt child is underneath the surface, just waiting for any excuse -- any excuse to just pounce.
June: Oh, my God, my God, what did I tell you?
Kendall: I know it all too well, Erica, remember? I was living at Wildwind when you stabbed Dimitri. Remember that? Oh, poor, pitiful, little Erica, trying to deal with her wounded childhood trauma.
Erica: Shut up right now.
Kendall: No, I'm not going to shut up right now. Jackson, run. Run. Get the hell out while you can. You -- you cannot love anybody. No one will ever love you the way you need to be loved, which is why you ruin lives. Which is why when the going gets tough, you snap. You just strike out. You see? You see, folks? She is crazy. She is certifiably crazy, folks.
Michael: Ok, that's enough, that's enough. Come on, come on, come on.
Jack: You know what, Erica? Let's just put down the cutlery, shall we, and get out of here, please? Ok.
Kendall: Is --
Michael: That was --
Kendall: That what you -- is that what you wanted?
Michael: Yeah, you were magnificent. Ok. Well, no doubt about it, after the story runs on the evening news, Erica's downfall begins and I'll step in as savior.
Michael: And, of course, your reign of Enchantment is assured.
Kendall: I'm counting on it.
Edmund: Ok, we're home now, honey. You're safe. Everything is going to be ok.
Edmund: All right, you son of a bitch, come and get me.
Aidan: Girls, we're here.
Maria: Maddie. Where are you?
Maddie: We're where?
Aidan: Come here. We're on a yacht.
Maddie: You mean a big, big boat?
Maria: Thank you.
Maddie: I've never been on a yacht before. At least I don't remember.
Maria: Well, you know what? Like mother, like daughter.
Maddie: Can I go see the water?
Maria: Um -- I don't know. What do you think, honey?
Aidan: Maybe you should speak to your daddy first.
Maria: Yeah, you know what? Actually, that's a pretty good idea. But we're going to have a lot of fun while we're here.
Maddie: We are?
Maddie: How long are we going to be here?
Lena: Here. Now you can stop what you're doing to me.
Michael: The billion-dollar disk? You got it for me?
Lena: Yes. You've got Boyd's formula. Now leave me and my mother alone.
Michael: Ah, sure. So you can get your little seaside house with Bianca?
Lena: I mean it, Michael. Enough.
Erica: So, how do you feel now?
Jack: I still feel fine. I always felt fine.
Kendall: It's me.
Kendall: Weren't we convincing? For a minute there, I thought we'd have to call the paramedics.
Erica: Did Michael buy it?
Kendall: Completely. He totally bought it. What about June Landau's media coverage?
Erica: Oh, well, I can always keep that going with a promise of an even bigger exclusive.
Kendall: Well, what could be even bigger than you brandishing a sharp object in public?
Erica: The fall of the Cambias empire after his failed takeover attempt of Enchantment.
Kendall: Ok, I can't talk here. I have to go over to Fusion. So, what's our next move?
Erica: I'm planning that now. I'll be in touch. Bianca.
Bianca: You were right.
Erica: Honey --
Bianca: God, mom, I hope you're happy, because everything that you said about Lena is true.
Erica: Of course I'm not happy. Honey, she has hurt you, and I hate her for that. But believe me, she is going to pay -- both she and Michael Cambias.
Bianca: Good. Because that's all I want.
Erica: Well, don't you worry, baby. Don't you worry. They are going to be so sorry that they ever messed with us.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Greenlee: Just when I thought you couldn't be played for a fool again, you find another way to make it happen.
Bianca: You didn't invite Lena over here to ambush her, did you?
Lena: You and I are over.
Michael: I wouldn't be so sure about that.
