(missed beginning, may be up Thursday)
Erica: Bianca, leave that, honey. Coral's going to take care of it.
Kendall: And besides, it's no good stalling. Lena's waiting.
Bianca: I'm just not too eager to share air space with the biggest liar on this side of the Atlantic.
Erica: Oh, honey, and believe me, I wish that you didn't have to do this.
Kendall: But you do. You do. If that polish piranha figures out that we're on to her, that's it. She's going to go straight to Michael.
Erica: And we need some more time, honey. I need to buy some more time before we can bring him down.
Bianca: All right. So Iíll be the one sneaking around behind Lenaís back now. You know, I never really thought it would turn out this way.
Bianca: Ah. She's text-messaging me. She misses me.
Kendall: Are you going to call her back?
Bianca: No. I'm just going to go over there. I might as well not put this off any longer.
Erica: Bianca, you hang tough and you be strong, because this is going to be over very soon.
Bianca: I hope so.
Kendall: Well, this is the first time we've ever had dinner together.
Erica: Well, you didn't eat much. And I guess that plotting to bring Michael Cambias down didn't exactly give you a lot of appetite.
Kendall: No. I really enjoyed it.
Erica: Of course.
Kendall: That's not what I meant.
Erica: You know, Kendall, it's ok. I mean, obviously, this is an awkward situation, but we really need each other, you know, to bring down Michael Cambias and that woman.
Kendall: We'll get them. Trust me, we'll get them. When you go after somebody, you're unstoppable. I know. I've been up against you a few times.
Erica: Look, we are not going to bring Michael Cambias and Lena down by sheer will alone. We're going to have to have really concrete proof of their crimes if we're going to make them pay.
Michael: Who you calling?
Lena: None of your business.
Michael: Until our work together is finished, everything you do is my business.
Lena: Look, I'm prepared to do whatever you ask as long as you leave my mother alone. What I do in my spare time is of no consequence to you.
Michael: Well, it is if you spill to baby Kane that Iíve acquired the recipe for her mother's anti-aging cream. I want to be up and running before Erica finds out what she's missing.
Lena: Well, you'd better work fast, because Ericaís a very shrewd woman.
Michael: Well, that's why Iím off to Argentina to supervise the start of production.
Lena: Oh. Well, I hope it's a long trip.
Michael: No, but it should be a profitable one. I'll call you.
Lena: I'll be waiting by the phone.
Greenlee: Did you get ahold of Mia?
Edmund: No, no. She's not answering at the loft, and her cell's not on.
Greenlee: Maybe she's in her car. I'd stay and chat, but I have somewhere to go.
Edmund: Listen, Greenlee, just -- are you sure you don't know where Mia was headed? I mean, didn't she say anything?
Mia: Edmund? Maddie? Edmund? Stella? That's weird. Why would everybody go out and leave the door unlocked? Edmund? Maddie? Is anybody home? Where are you guys? Hello? Where are you?
Mia: Hello? Edmund? This is strange. Where are all the security guards at? Edmund?
Maria: See, I told you this is going to be fun. We're going to have a big slumber party tonight.
Maddie: Can we sleep in sleeping bags?
Maria: Well, we can if I can find some sleeping bags, and I will look all over, ok?
Maria: In the meantime, can you go put on your pajamas?
Maddie: But then can I call daddy? I want to say good night.
Maria: Well, daddy is in the middle of something important right now, sweetheart, so I don't know. I don't know if we should interrupt him.
Maddie: More important than me?
Maria: No. Nothing is more important than you.
Maria: Nothing in the world is more important than you. Ok, I'll talk to Aidan about it, we'll discuss it, and you put on your P.J.s.
Maddie: Ok --
Maria: See ya. What do you think?
Aidan: I don't see why she can't call Edmund. I think he'll be happy to hear from her before she goes to bed.
Maria: Yeah, but what if Edmundís right in the middle of -- you know, what if the shooter is there at Wildwind?
Aidan: Then he won't answer the phone.
Maria: Yeah, well, true. I don't know. I just want this to be over. I just want this to be over really soon.
Aidan: Well, you are really bonding with Maddie, aren't you?
Maria: Yeah, well, can you help it? She's so irresistible, isn't she?
Aidan: That's because she takes after her mum.
Maria: Baby, when is he going to call? Why doesn't he call? What's taking him so long?
Aidan: Look, there's no telling when or even if the shooter's going to turn up at Wildwind.
Maria: I don't know. What are we supposed to do? He's supposed to put himself in this kind of danger for what? Forever? I mean, we can't live like this indefinitely.
Aidan: Well, I know this is hard for you, Maureen.
Maria: Yeah, my little girl is a target.
Aidan: I know. You're scared for Maddie, aren't you? I know that.
Maria: No, because I know you're going to take good care of us. How are you doing?
Aidan: I'm doing fine.
Edmund: Did Mia tell anyone else where she was going tonight?
Greenlee: Maybe she talked to Simone. Let's try her cell.
Edmund: Great. Thanks.
Tad: Hey, Greenlee. Liza around?
Greenlee: Why doesn't anyone come here looking for me?
Greenlee: Never mind. Liza's gone, which is what Iíd like to be. Excuse me. I need to check my face.
Edmund: Great. No answer.
Tad: Are you all right? I heard that Maddie saw a shooting in the park?
Edmund: Yeah, she did, and the shooter saw her, so he actually came after her at the hospital.
Tad: Is she all right?
Edmund: She's fine, she's fine, Tad. She's in hiding right now with Maureen, and Derekís at Wildwind, trying to flush him out.
Tad: You must be losing your mind.
Edmund: I am, I am, and now I can't find Mia. Listen, just keep this between us.
Tad: Yeah. Let me know if there's anything else I can do.
Greenlee: Is everybody ready to clear out?
Edmund: Yeah. Just one more question -- do you have any idea where Simone might be tonight?
Greenlee: Unfortunately, I know exactly where she is -- at S.O.S. with Carlos.
Greenlee: Mm-hmm. Is he always so intense?
Tad: He's got a lot on his mind.
Greenlee: Yeah. So do I. I need to rescue Carlos from Simone.
Tad: I'd rethink that if I were you.
Greenlee: Why do you say that?
Tad: Because you don't share a jail cell with a guy without learning a couple of things about him.
Greenlee: You did? Like what?
Tad: Don't even. Namely, that he doesn't like being pushed.
Greenlee: Come with me.
Carlos: Excuse me. There you go. Double shot, just like you asked.
Simone: Oh. Funny. Thank you.
Carlos: All right. What are you writing there?
Simone: Oh, an idea for a new ad campaign. I'm inspired.
Carlos: What's it about?
Simone: You -- the sexy man that every Fusion woman wants.
Carlos: Ok, well, here you go. Here's a new cocktail napkin to find somebody else.
Simone: Obviously, you don't realize how difficult it is to find a hot, sexy guy.
Carlos: Simone, you're persistent. You'll manage just fine.
Simone: Carlos, I have been searching my entire life to snag the right man, and look where Iím sitting. I am not hitting on you, all right?
Simone: But I know -- Greenlee, Greenlee, Greenlee. This is business. Ok, focus.
Carlos: Are you sure?
Simone: Are you?
Carlos: A la amistad. To friends.
Simone: To friends.
Carlos: Here we go.
Bartender: Ok, what can I get for you?
Bianca: Oh, just a ginger ale. God!
Lena: Oh! It's just me. Who did you think it was?
Kendall: Are you going somewhere?
Michael: South America. A business trip.
Kendall: Oh, that's so far. Will you be gone long?
Michael: Well, that depends.
Kendall: Well, I'm going to miss you.
Michael: Mm-hmm. I'll bet.
Michael: Hmm. That was nice. Almost like you meant it.
Kendall: I did. And as soon as you get me Enchantment, there's a lot more where that came from.
Michael: Well, then, in that case, I'll hurry back.
Kendall: Hmm. Oh, no, I got it, I got it.
Michael: Oh, thanks.
Kendall: I'll walk you to your car.
Reggie: I was listening to that.
Erica: What on earth are you doing in my home, ruining the speakers on my stereo?
Reggie: I'm waiting for somebody to show me my room.
Erica: Show you your room? Jack?
Jack: I guess in all the excitement, I forgot to mention that Reggie was going to be staying with us.
Erica: "Forgot to mention"? Jack, we never discussed this.
Jack: Erica, you know Iím Reggieís legal guardian. I figured when you asked me to recuperate here, you knew that Reggie would be part of the package.
Erica: Well, I thought that Reggie was staying with Dr. Anderson.
Jack: Well, he was, but that was only temporary, and since you and I are getting married, this may be more permanent. You might as well get used to it.
Kendall: All right. Ok, all right, all right, come on, come on, come on. Ok, what secrets are you hiding from me, Michael? Ok. Come on. Let's go.
Lena: What's the matter? Why are you so jumpy?
Bianca: Oh, it's nothing. I'm not used to being kissed in public.
Lena: Oh, I'm sorry. I'll be more discreet. It's just I'm so happy to see you. You have no idea how much my day improves when I am with you.
Bianca: Well, well, I'm glad.
Lena: Bianca, you seem so stressed. Where were you when I spoke to you? At work?
Bianca: Yeah. I was having dinner with my mother.
Lena: Is she giving you a hard time about me?
Bianca: She understands that I need to make my own decisions, even if they are decisions that she doesn't agree with. What about your mother? Was she always trying to run your life, or did she pass away when you were too young? If this bothers you, if you're upset --
Lena: No, no. I want to tell you about my mother. I want to tell you everything.
Bianca: You do?
Lena: I wasn't going to do this. I've never trusted anyone enough to tell.
Bianca: Tell me what?
Carlos: Well, there's not much to tell about me.
Simone: Oh, come on. I was a reporter. There's always a story to tell.
Carlos: Hmm. Really? You were a reporter?
Carlos: Why'd you quit?
Simone: Oh, well, I didn't make it big, really. I did have this great book deal option at one time, but that turned out to be a disaster. I basically just never really did things the right way.
Carlos: Hmm. Well, it's not always easy to see what's right.
Simone: Could you tell that to my father, because he just sees me as a screw up, and actually, he's -- you know, he's right, because I screwed up on the man that I picked and I screwed up on my career that he paid for and I screwed up on Fusion, getting arrested over and over again.
Carlos: Maybe you're just trying too hard to meet your father's expectations.
Simone: Did your parents put expectations on you?
Carlos: Well, my mom -- she just -- she just wants me to be happy.
Simone: Oh, well, that's nice. And your father?
Carlos: He died a few months ago.
Simone: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to --
Carlos: No, it's not your -- I really don't like talking about it -- or him.
Simone: You didn't get along?
Carlos: Well, he wasn't much of a father. None of my brothers or sisters went to the funeral, and none of his mistresses went either.
Simone: But your mom did?
Carlos: She always stood by him. I promised myself I would never treat a woman the way my father treated my mother.
Simone: Hmm. Get you. You're even more gorgeous on the inside than you are on the out.
Edmund: Simone. Hi.
Simone: Oh, Edmund.
Edmund: Sorry to interrupt. How you doing?
Simone: What's up?
Edmund: Listen, I'm looking for Mia. Do you know where she went tonight?
Simone: No. No, I donít.
Carlos: I actually heard her on the phone with Liza.
Edmund: Oh, ok. But I called the house. They're not home. I got the machine. Thanks.
Simone: Well, you know, actually, I left a message for Liza to meet us here, so they're probably on their way.
Maria: I brought a whole book of bedtime stories. Do you want me to read you one?
Maddie: Ok, but, first, can I call up daddy? I want to say good night.
Maria: Yes, you can. Aidan and I talked about it. We say yes.
Maddie: I wish daddy were here.
Maria: I know you do, sweetheart. He wishes he could be here, too. You know, you do know that we both love you to pieces and pieces, right?
Maddie: I love you, too, Mommy.
Maria: Ok, good. That's a good thing.
Mia: Hello? Is anybody here? Damn it.
Mia: Who's there? Is somebody there? Maddie? Maddie, is that you? Oh, my God.
Evan: Stop struggling. Stop struggling or Iíll snap your neck. Stop struggling or Iíll snap your neck! All right, let go. Be a good girl.
Mia: Oh! Oh. Oh. Ow.
Jack: Son, why don't you do us both a favor and get your foot off the sofa. Go out in the kitchen and find something to eat, ok?
Reggie: Yeah, sure. I'll go tell the cook to whip me up a soufflť or something like that.
Erica: Well, we don't have a cook.
Reggie: No -- no, you don't? So that means you do all the cooking, because it can't be Jack. The man can't boil water.
Jack: Reggie, go into the kitchen now. I'm sure the refrigerator's full of food.
Reggie: Well, I hope so. I'm a growing boy. I need food.
Erica: Oh, Reggie, kitchen's that way.
Reggie: Oh. Yeah.
Erica: Oh, and don't touch the English bone china.
Reggie: Ok, English people eat off bones? Ok.
Erica: Well, I thought you told me that that bullet had absolutely no effect on your brain.
Jack: Erica, you marry me, you know I come with a foster son. You know that.
Erica: Well, I know about Reggie, but I --
Jack: And you like Reggie. Reggie's the one that turned Trey in for burning down your house.
Erica: Yes, I do like Reggie, and he did the right thing then, but I had no idea that he was going to be living with us.
Jack: Why don't you look at it this way, sweetheart -- haven't you always wanted a son?
Erica: That is so not funny.
Jack: It's a little funny. The funny thing is it only hurts when I laugh. That is a true thing. I didn't know that.
Reggie: Which one of these are made up of bone? This one?
Erica: No, don't -- don't touch those.
Reggie: Oh, ok.
Erica: Oh --
Kendall's voice: "Michael, I have just received your latest report card, and Iím deeply disappointed in you. Apparently, you've forgotten our talk at your brother's funeral."
Kendall: He had a brother?
Kendall's voice: "Since your older brother wanted to shoulder the responsibility of leading the next generation of our family, I never pressured you. I looked the other way when you engaged in less-than-stellar behavior. But now that your brother is so tragically lost to us, it is up to you to take his place. The future of this family takes precedence over your self-indulgent whims. I trust that this is the last time you will let us down."
Edmund: Simone, is Mia here yet?
Edmund: Has Liza called?
Simone: Let me check. Oh, you know what? I have this off. I'm sorry. You know what? I'm sure they're right on their way.
Greenlee: There they are.
Simone: It's really working.
Greenlee: Your cellmates -- Carlos and Simone.
Tad: Oh, yeah. Want to say hi?
Greenlee: No, no! No. This is a reconnaissance mission.
Greenlee: Look at them. Just look.
Tad: Why? It's nothing I didn't see when I was locked up in the clink.
Greenlee: I want you to tell me exactly what Carlos said about me when he was in jail.
Bianca: Lena, you can tell me anything.
Lena: I don't want to lie, but my mother's life depends on it.
Bianca: Your mother's life? I thought your mother was dead.
Lena: No. That's what I tell people when they ask, but it's not true. She's alive and she's in great danger. Many years ago, she collaborated with the oppressive regime in my country. She was a model, and they let her travel abroad to the west anywhere. But in return, they expected her to do certain favors for them.
Bianca: She was a spy?
Lena: Only because they threatened to destroy her career if she didn't collaborate. Like many people at the time, she thought she had to go along with it. Oh, she regrets it terribly now, but she can't undo the past.
Bianca: Well, no one can.
Lena: The new regime would hold her accountable for her activities. That's why she has to live in hiding. That's why I tell everyone she's dead -- to protect her. I couldn't lie to you, Bianca. I've never trusted anyone as much as I trust you.
Evan: Drop it, sweetheart. Drop it.
Mia: Who are you? What do you want? Oh!
Evan: Where's the kid?
Mia: You're the guy from the park. You want Maddie. You're not getting near her!
Evan: Shut up and do exactly what I tell you, or I'll kill the both of you!
Mia: I don't live here!
Evan: Now, answer the phone! Answer it and don't try anything stupid.
Maddie: Hello? Who's this? Where is my daddy?
Mia: I -- I -- ah!
Aidan: Hello, Edmund?
Evan: Who was that?
Aidan: Maddie, who was it that answered the phone? Did you recognize the voice?
Reggie: You'll see Iím good to have around. You know, I did save my man Jack's life.
Erica: Yes, you did, and I'm really grateful for that. Ju-- just be careful, all right?
Jack: Ok, tell you what -- why don't you let me get Reggie here settled and you go take yourself a nice hot bath.
Reggie: Oh, you guys got one of those whirlpool thingies with the whole -- never mind. Oh, man.
Erica: Oh, man!
Erica: What is that? Is that mustard on my carpet?
Jack: Yes, yes, yes, it is. We'll -- we'll get up. Why don't you just now go and soak. Go somewhere.
Erica: Let me tell you something. If you weren't almost dead a few days ago, I'd kill you right now.
Jack: I love you, too, sweetheart. Oh, boy. Let's get this cleaned up.
Reggie: Come on, no, I've got it, Jack. Don't go popping no stitches, ok?
Reggie: It's all right. Oh, boy.
Jack: You know, I really am glad you're here.
Reggie: Yeah, me, too. You know I got your back.
Jack: Yeah. I noticed.
Jack: A couple of times. You know, Reggie, what happened that night in the alley is starting to come back to me. It's just bits and pieces. I was hoping maybe you could fill in some of the blanks.
Reggie: What blanks, all right? I told you, I found you, Joni called 911. What else do you want from me?
Greenlee: Carlos never talked about me? Not once?
Tad: No. He was busy trying to take the blame for Simone.
Greenlee: Why? What does he see in her?
Tad: Is it a trick question? Well, I hate to break to you, she's not exactly a beagle and she's available. She's -- you know --
Tad: Nice to him.
Greenlee: And I'm not?
Tad: Come on. Forget it. It's none of my business. The fact is I've been where you are, you know? We both love people to the bottom of our hearts, and that leaves a hell of a hole.
Greenlee: Leo would want me to go on.
Tad: I know. And so would Dixie. But starting over can be a real kick in the teeth -- especially if you start from the wrong place.
Greenlee: Did I just blow this whole thing?
Lena: Bianca, I told you the truth.
Bianca: Of course it is. I -- I'm sorry. I just -- you know, I've dealt with so many lies in the past, and I swore to myself that that wouldn't be my life anymore.
Lena: Well, that's one of the things I adore the most about you, and I hope that some of your honesty might rub off on me. Look, I really hope that one day you'll get to meet my mother. It'd be so wonderful to have the two people I love the most be in the same room. I'm sorry.
Kendall: I thought my mother was bad.
Kendall: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. He's been stalking us all this time, even when I was with Ryan. Oh, my God, you sick bastard.
Maria: What do you think is going on? Why would Mia be at Wildwind right now?
Aidan: I don't know, but whoever it was hung up on me, Maureen --
Maria: I know.
Aidan: As soon as I picked up the phone.
Maria: I don't understand. Why would Edmund even invite anybody over right now when he's expecting a killer to maybe come by?
Aidan: Something's not right. Something's off. I'm going to go get ahold of Edmund. You take care of Maddie.
Maddie: I miss daddy.
Maria: I know you do, sweetheart. I know. We're going to see him really soon. Really soon.
Evan: I asked you a question! Who was on the phone?
Mia: I don't know!
Evan: I don't have time for this. Where's the kid?
Mia: I don't know. I just got here. Ok, maybe she's asleep.
Evan: Asleep through all this noise?
Mia: It's a big house. Her bedroom's in another wing, ok?
Evan: Really? Show me.
Mia: Stop it.
Evan: Show me.
Mia: I don't know if I can make it up the stairs. My ankle --
Evan: Well, you better make it up here or you die right here.
Mia: Oh! God --
Edmund: Call me the minute you get this message, all right?
Aidan: No. It's Aidan. Mia's not with you?
Edmund: No, no. What's wrong? Is Maddie all right?
Aidan: Yeah, Maddie's fine. Maureen's tucking her into bed right now. Where are you?
Edmund: I'm at S.O.S.
Aidan: Maddie tried calling you at home. Mia answered, and then she hung up on me.
Edmund: Mia's at Wildwind?
Aidan: Yeah. It looks that way.
Reggie: Jack, I just told you, ok? It was me, Joni, and you bleeding all over the place.
Jack: Yeah, there was somebody else in that alley. I heard them. I heard their voice. It was somebody. You're telling me there was nobody else in that alley when you found me?
Reggie: Jack, you must -- you must be hallucinating or something, because there was nobody else in the alley.
Jack: Oh, look at you. You know what? You're a really bad liar.
Reggie: You were really messed up.
Jack: Hey, you saw somebody in that alley, and you know who it is.
Reggie: I didn't say that.
Jack: Ooh, sit down here. Who are you protecting, Reggie, huh? Who is it? Is it the guy you broke into Trey's apartment with? Is it the guy that shot that store clerk?
Reggie: I just told you, there was nobody else there. What else do you want from me?
Jack: I want the truth. You're looking at me right in my face and you're lying to me. You're lying to cover somebody else's butt. Now, I want to know who it is. Who did you see there? Why are you protecting them? What do they have on you?
Reggie: I can't -- I --
Jack: Reggie --
Reggie: I can't -- I don't --
Jack: Please, please. For God's sake, if you know who shot me, please tell me.
Lena: I'm so sorry I got so emotional. I'm not used to all these feelings.
Bianca: Oh. Well, what are you used to?
Lena: I don't want to dwell on the past. Now is better. You're going?
Bianca: Yeah, I have to go. I have a lot of work to do. My mother put me on a new project.
Lena: Oh, I'll come with you. We'll do it together.
Bianca: No, I -- I need to do it alone to prove to her that I can handle this.
Lena: I understand. You'll call me when you're done?
Bianca: You know, it could be pretty late.
Lena: That doesn't matter. I need you tonight. I don't want to wake up alone again.
Greenlee: Would you look at that tramp? She's practically eating him alive.
Tad: So I guess we're going to file this conversation under "gee, Tad, thanks for the advice."
Greenlee: Hey, hey, Carlos came on to me, and now he's playing up to her? What do I have to do to get through to him? Get arrested?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Michael: You double-crossed me, didn't you?
Erica: Somebody tried to kill Jack, and if you know who that is, then you tell us that right now because otherwise, you can pack your bags and you can get out right now.
Maria: Mama's back.
