>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Simone: Oh -- Maggie!

Tad: I'll bet you that I can find myself a perfectly wonderful woman while you're out there scratching around the dirt for a halfway decent guy.

Man: Can't be pleasant.

Michael: It's you and me forever.

Bianca: Leave me alone, please.

Erica: Oh, please, God, take good care of my baby girl.

Liza: Where is he? Where's my mother?

Tad: Where's who, and why would I invite Marian?

Liza: Because when you called, it sounded like there was an emergency, like Stuart was, like, pinned under a marble pedestal or something.

Tad: Relax.

Liza: What are you doing?

Tad: I just wanted to know if you'd had any luck, you know, "bet-wise." I was wondering if you had the man of your dreams out there hanging on a meat hook someplace.

Liza: I haven't even started thinking about that. Why?

Tad: You don't have to. I'm forfeiting the bet. You win.

Liza: What is this?

Tad: This is me admitting that when it comes to you being with the man you deserve, the life you deserve to live is far more important than a childish little wager.

Liza: What are you trying to say?

Tad: I am saying the right man for you is right under your nose.

Liza: He is?

Tad: And you've known him for years.

Liza: I have?

Tad: Mm-hmm. Ever since we were in high school together, and no matter what's happened throughout all the years, he never stopped caring about you.

Liza: Are you sure about this? Really sure?

Tad: Absolutely. 100%. It's not too late for you to find out what life would have been like if you'd said yes to him, and if he had been courageous enough to sign on for a fantastic woman like you.

Man: Isn't it possible?

Kendall: What?

Man: That I might help you find what you're seeking.

Kendall: Oh, thank you, but no, I don't think so.

Man: But you're unhappy. It's dark and you're alone. Naturally, you are frightened. Forgive me.

Kendall: Bianca?

Man: What did you say?

Kendall: Bianca, my sister.

Man: You're searching for her?

Kendall: Yeah. Yeah, I am, and now I'm really scared.

Anna: Hello, Erica.

Erica: Hello. Yes, you did it, then? You put the APB out on Bianca?

Jack: Well, actually, Anna wants to ask you a few questions.

Erica: All right. I don't know what more I can tell you.

Anna: Jack said that Bianca left Myrtle's, and she was carrying a suitcase.

Erica: Yes. Apparently. I mean, that's what I was told, and she apparently didn't say a word to anyone, no goodbyes.

Anna: Do you think maybe she went to see some friends or vacationing for a couple of days?

Erica: No, no. When I saw Bianca, she was very upset.

Anna: Which was when?

Erica: Yesterday.

Anna: Ok, and you argued?

Erica: No, no, nothing like that. As a matter of fact, Bianca promised to help us with our wedding plans.

Anna: So you didn't fight, and she wasn't angry at you?

Erica: No. No, nothing -- please, Anna, something is really wrong. Please, please do everything you can to find Bianca before something really terrible happens.

[Bianca gasps]

Michael: You're a smart girl, Bianca. You should know by now that you can't run away from me.

Simone: Oh, I'm going to be here all night! Yes, and plotting my revenge on Maggie. So what if I locked her in the bathroom stall at SOS? You know, it bought me time with Carlos. Yes, and it also bought you 12 hours alone in this elevator. I need a -- I need a hero. Oh, God, I need a hero.

Carlos: Simone?

Simone: Carlos? Carlos, where are you?

Simone: Oh! Oh, oh, hallelujah.

Carlos: Simone, are you all right?

Simone: Oh, yeah, now I'm fantastic.

Carlos: Don't worry, I’ll get you out of here.

Simone: Oh, we could stay. I mean, we haven't been alone before. Stay with me, Carlos? Please? Stay with me forever.

Carlos: I'm so sorry, but I've got to patch up Maggie’s plumbing, raise Greenlee’s temperature in her bedroom, carve fresh notches in Kendall’s bedpost, and start Mia’s engine.

Simone: Now, hold it.

Carlos: No, no, no, you hold on -- when you're ready to come up, and beware of the rope burns.

Simone: I can't even land Carlos in my fantasy. You know what? Forget Carlos. Yeah. You know what? I need a whole new, brand-new fantasy man. Yeah.

Kendall: This was hers. Oh, I should have paid closer attention to her.

Man: There was trouble between you?

Kendall: Yeah, well, we've had our differences over the years.

Man: Of course, you're sisters.

Kendall: She disappeared. No one knows where Bianca is, and I found her here yesterday. She was -- she was standing right here. She was acting really weird, though.

Man: In what way?

Kendall: She was distracted, and I don't know, I can't really describe it.

Man: And now she's run away?

Kendall: Well, we don't know. We just found out that she left the boarding house where she lives.

Man: What does she look like?

Kendall: She's pretty. She's about my height, big, dark eyes, short, dark hair, kind of a heart-shaped face. Our mother's freaking out.

Man: Has she recently suffered disappointment? I mean, Bianca.

Kendall: I guess. I mean, she did, but I thought she was getting over it.

Man: So she has been unhappy because of love?

Kendall: Yeah.

Man: So perhaps she needs some time alone.

Kendall: Yeah, well, if that's the case, then why didn't she just tell us about it?

Man: I think I know where she is. Come. I forgot, we don't know each other. Follow me, then.

Kendall: Why put yourself out for me?

Man: You need assistance. If I can give it, why turn away?

Erica: I saw Bianca yesterday at Myrtle’s, and when I arrived, Lena was with her. Actually, when I arrived, then Bianca sent Lena away, and Bianca was very upset and very, very distracted.

Anna: So do you think that maybe she and Lena are having problems?

Erica: Well, Lena said that there was nothing new. She did say that Bianca canceled a trip that they were planning to take and that Bianca said -- actually, she insisted on staying here to help us plan the wedding, and then all of a sudden Lena announced that Bianca had left.

Jack: Listen, listen, listen. Relax. We're going to find her. Ok?

Erica: Jack, Myrtle said that Bianca is not eating.

Jack: Really? Bianca was anorexic.

Anna: Oh.

Erica: She almost died, and if I lose my baby to that disease --

Jack: You listen to me. You are not going to lose her to anything, I promise you.

Erica: Ok, look, I know that she hasn't been missing long enough --

Anna: It's all right. We're going to put out an APB. We'll do all we can.

Erica: You understand?

Anna: Yes.

Erica: Of course you do. Of course.

Anna: I do have to warn you that we're working with a reduced roster.

Erica: You're understaffed?

Jack: No, it's because of the special assignments.

Erica: Yeah, your guard and --

Jack: And Lena’s and Mia’s and --

Erica: I see. Well, I would like all those officers out there looking for Bianca.

Anna: But while Michael Cambias is out on bail --

Jack: And unaccounted for, we have to make sure that any women he might be targeting are protected.

Erica: All right, well, with the security here in the building, I’m perfectly safe. I would like my officer back out on my patrol.

Anna: All right. We can reassign Matosian, yeah.

Erica: Great, and actually, all the rest.

Jack: No, whoa, whoa. I need to talk to the other women before I can do a thing like that. You understand.

Erica: All right, of course. Please, but do that, then. Call them.

Anna: You know what? We can do this back in the office, and I’ll start it.

Jack: Ok.

Erica: Thank you.

Jack: I'll be right there, Anna. Listen, Bianca’s going to be home before you know it, ok? I promise you that. Don't you worry, sweetheart.

Michael: Get used to it. Don't make me keep saying it. Wherever you go, I will follow. I'll even get there first. You will never escape me. I will always, always find you.

Michael's voice: Always. Always. Always.

Liza: I -- I didn't know you felt like this. I mean, this is a complete 180 for you.

Tad: From what?

Liza: Well, I didn't think that you were interested.

Tad: I'm not. I'm not talking about me.

Liza: Well, what is this? What is -- what is this? The mood lighting and privacy and champagne?

Tad: I just thought that I would, you know, give romance a little shove, try to bring you out of it. After all, I’m not the only man from your past. You weren't exactly Sweet Polly Purebred, you know.

Liza: You know, honestly, I can attract my own men, thank you very much.

Tad: I'm not so sure. Maybe not this guy because, you know, you guys haven't really connected in the last few years. Maybe a couple of chance encounters, you know, you turn one way, he turns the other way. See each other --

Liza: You know what? All the guys I knew in high school were losers.

Tad: Thank you.

Liza: Except Greg. Oh, tell me you didn't call Greg Nelson.

Tad: Come on, lighten up. I am doing this for you.

Liza: You said somebody was here.

Tad: Somebody is here. Now let's just see if you can recognize his voice.

Liza: No, no.

Tad: Recognize his voice!

Man: Ahem. We were in Mrs. Andrell's class together, sophomore year, third period.

Liza: Who?

Tad: You got to guess.

Liza: No, no, who is Mrs. Andrell?

Man: She was our Geometry teacher. Liza, how could you forget her? Tad, maybe this wasn't such a good idea.

Tad: No, no, no. Prey go on, oh Chef of the Future.

Man: Ahem. Right. Ok, well, one day in class, Mrs. B. asked for the definition of a triangle, and she calls upon Liza. Liza replies, "a triangle is when a girl has two guys making moves on her."

Liza: You are so dead.

Man: That's not the case now, is it? Tad tells me you're unattached.

Tad: Been a while, huh, kids?

Man: Too long. Nice to see you, Liza.

Liza: Yes, we have Tad to thank. However did you manage this?

Tad: Well, it's a funny thing. I ran into Albert -- Alfred here a couple of days ago.

Alfred: Yes, at the bank. You see, I handle Stuart’s gallery's account.

Liza: At the bank?

Alfred: At the bank, yes.

Tad: Yeah, but you know what? Life is so much more than money or accounts, isn't it? And when I told him about how you were divorced from Adam --

Liza: Wait, I'm sorry. Did this come up in casual conversation?

Alfred: No, I asked, and when Tad confided that you've been so lonely and depressed, lost in a loveless existence --

Liza: Oh. Well, I can't thank you enough for being so charming.

Alfred: Well, my heart went out to you, Liza, and then, of course, when Tad told me --

[Glass breaks]

Alfred: Ooh --

Tad: I'm fine. Go ahead, please.

Alfred: Well, Tad told me what you said about me, and I was very --

Liza: Oh, really? What did he say? Please tell me exactly.

Alfred: I believe his exact words were that you regarded me as a ship that had sailed.

Liza: Oh. Not far enough. I mean, you've always been fairly close by.

Alfred: Well, fortunately, yes. Well, I'm the answer to your dreams. You have wished for me to reappear, and here I am -- ready, willing, and able to offer financial advice and wooing.

Tad: Woo-woo.

Simone: Ok, new face, new me, new hero. Now, only younger this time. What the --

Jamie: Simone. Thanks for thinking outside the box.

Simone: Jamie, what are you --

Jamie: It's about time you gave me a second chance. The elevator man helped me, and I let him off for the night.

Simone: So, here we are.

Jamie: Until about 8:00 in the morning.

Simone: Wow.

Jamie: I think that should be plenty of time.

Simone: Oh, I don't know about this.

Jamie: I do.

Simone: Oh. No, no, you know what? I -- I -- no, this is all wrong. I know I said young, but you're way too young.

Jamie: With my pedigree? Are you kidding? You know who my father is.

Simone: Yeah.

Tad: All right, break it up. That's enough, son. I'll take it from here.

Jamie: Dad, come on --

Tad: No, go on home, do your homework, brush your teeth, get ready for bed.

Jamie: Dad, this isn't fair.

Tad: Hey, life isn't fair. Get over it. Simone.

Simone: Tad.

Tad: I got to hand it to you, you know? You, me in a freight elevator?

Simone: Yeah.

Tad: Not the world's most original fantasy, but it's a surefire winner. That is, of course, until I start to get a little, you know, claustrophobic.

Simone: You're claustrophobic?

Tad: Only in your fantasy. See, it demonstrates my childish, vulnerable side, which appeals to you. So you comfort me, and I open up to you about all the pain in my life --

Simone: Oh --

Tad: And you look in my eyes, and all of a sudden it hits you. You realize I need a good woman. Somebody who can give me a first-rate spanking, you know? Make me realize my potential.

Simone: Yeah.

Tad: Then we look into each other's eyes, we talk back and forth, blah, blah, blah. Eventually, we get around to something like this.

[Music plays]

Tad: Oh, no, that's not right. Here, try this, come on. Ok.

Singer: Tad the Cad he's bad -- ooh, ooh, ooh Tad the Cad

Tad: Yeah, something like that.

Simone: Oh, that's good. You know, skipping to that part was good.

Tad: On the other hand, this isn't really your classic fantasy, is it?

Simone: Huh? Well, we're just getting off the ground.

Tad: No, no, no. I just don't get that, you know, classic vibe. I mean, you know, look around. What do you see?

Simone: We're in an elevator. It's a, you know, freight elevator.

Tad: Exactement, baby. By now we should be so far into each other, we don't care where the hell we are, you know?

Simone: After one kiss?

Tad: Oh, are you kidding? By now we should be in the bathtub with the rose petals and stuff. I'm sorry, you know, I just don't feel it, and you got to trust me, I know these things, and I tell you what -- it was a nice thought.

Simone: Oh, Tad --

Tad: That's good. That's really good. Now you just, you know, rehearse a little bit. We'll try it again.

Simone: Oh. Between now and whenever I get out of here, I am going to have one hot fantasy if it kills me.

Jack: Anna, have you talked to Manardi in Philadelphia yet?

Anna: What, me? No, sorry. Hi.

David: Hi. Is this a bad time?

Anna: Bianca's missing.

David: Bianca?

Anna: Yeah. Oh, gosh -- dinner. Can we make a rain check?

David: No, no, don't worry about that. Tell me more about Bianca.

Anna: Apparently, she was behaving oddly and took off, and no one knows why or where she's gone, so --

David: Oh, damn it! I knew I should have kept her with me.

Anna: Do you know something about this?

David: I brought Bianca to the clinic this morning. She wound up on the roof.

Anna: What?

Jack: How did she get up there?

David: That's not important, and what happened is I got up on the roof, and I saw her standing there at the edge. I pulled her back before she could fall.

Jack: Before she could fall, or before she jumped?

Michael: Bianca, what do you think you're doing?

Bianca: No, please. Just let me go. Leave me the hell alone!

Kendall: Well, this is the thanks I get for tracking you down?

Bianca: Kendall, I never asked you to, ok?

Kendall: Yeah, well, excuse me for caring, Bianca.

Man: This is your sister?

Kendall: Yeah, you wouldn't know it by the way she's acting.

Bianca: Ok, all right, stop freaking out, ok? You can leave me alone. I'm fine.

Kendall: Yeah, well, tell that to Erica. She's threatening to cancel her wedding because of you, Bianca.

Bianca: What? No -- why?

Kendall: She thought you were lying dead in some ditch. I'm telling you, if you do not want Mom to cancel her wedding to Jack, you have to talk to her right now. Find her right now, and tell her why you ran off.

[Doorbell rings]

Opal: Hey there, honey. Well, a hearty "howdy do" to you, too.

Erica: Oh, Opal. Bianca is missing.

Opal: Bi-- well, what do you mean? Missing how?

Erica: She's gone. She's vanished.

Opal: Well, now, you're sure you're not jumping to conclusions here? Maybe she's just, you know, gone off for a few days with her friend Lena.

Erica: No, she's not with Lena. She's run away.

Opal: Well, what makes you think that?

Erica: Oh, it's a long story. Oh, this is my punishment. I've known for so long that Greenlee is Jack's daughter, but I can't tell him.

Opal: Honey, you're not being punished.

Erica: Oh, yes, I am. I've lost my daughter because I am keeping Jack from his.

David: I ran into Bianca at the park yesterday, and she seemed a little off. So I stopped by Myrtle's this morning to see how she was doing.

Jack: And how did she seem then?

David: Well, she didn't seem well, frankly. She fainted, so I brought her to the clinic to have her checked out; and before we can get to her, she slipped away.

Jack: And she ended up on the roof?

David: Yeah, yeah, and that's when I pulled her away from the edge.

Jack: David, did she seem suicidal to you?

David: Of course I asked her about that.

Jack: And?

David: But she denied it, ok? And she was rather convincing, I might add.

Jack: So you find an obviously disturbed woman teetering on the edge of the roof, and all you do is walk away? You don't do anything about it? You don't call me? You don't call her mother? You're a doctor, for God's sake.

David: Where the hell were you and Erica when she started slipping into this strange behavior? I'm sure it didn't happen overnight. So don't you dare turn me into the villain here!

Anna: Jackson, do you want to check the area hospitals?

Jack: Yeah, obviously, I better.

Anna: All right, David, come with me.

David: I want to help find her.

Anna: Yeah, stay out of Jack's way, would you?

David: And yours?

Anna: I didn't say that.

David: Yeah, but if anything happens to Bianca, it's my fault, right?

Anna: I wish you wouldn't put words in my mouth.

David: What you really want to say is, stay from Bianca before she ends up like Leora.

Bianca: Ok, I will. I will. Just tell Mom I'll call her, ok?

Kendall: No, no, no, no. Wait a minute. Uh-uh, and give you a chance to run off? I don't think so. No, Bianca, listen to me. Erica needs to see you. She needs to see you now. She's terrified.

Bianca: Ok. Um -- fine.

Kendall: You are almost enough to make me believe in miracles.

Man: Because your sister is safe?

Kendall: I would have never come here, and if you hadn't come along, then who knows --

Man: I'm happy to help.

Kendall: You've never seen me before. You've never seen Bianca. You talk to me for five minutes, and you knew exactly where to find her. You're like some kind of guardian angel or something.

Man: No. I passed your sister before I found you. When you spoke of Bianca, I realized that you were looking for her.

Kendall: Well, lucky for me you have a good memory.

Man: I never forget a beautiful face. Now I always remember yours. Take care of your sister.

Michael: I'll be right behind you, Bianca. Always.

Opal: Just keep telling yourself that no news is good news.

Erica: Opal, I need to know that she's -- Bianca! Oh! Thank God you're all right! You're all right! Where have you been? Where did you find her?

Kendall: I found her at the boathouse in the park.

Erica: Oh, thank God you're all right. You are, aren't you?

Bianca: Yes, I’m fine.

Opal: Honey, your mama has been pacing trenches in the rugs over you.

Erica: Well, when I heard that you had packed your bags and left Myrtle's, and you didn't say goodbye or anything --

Bianca: I'm sorry. You know, I didn't -- I'm sorry that everybody got so freaked out. There was nothing to worry about. I'm fine. Really.

Erica: Oh, all right. Then -- then, why did you leave?

Opal: Oh, gosh, almighty, look at the time. I was supposed to be back to relieve Petey's babysitter an hour ago. She's scared to death of him.

Erica: Yeah. Thanks so much for keeping me company.

Opal: Oh, honey, anytime.

Erica: Ok. Will you call Jack? Will you tell him that Bianca’s back, she's safe.

Opal: Will do.

Erica: Ok. Thanks.

Opal: Y'all take care now, you hear?

Erica: Kendall -- Kendall, I can't seem to find my new faxes from Olaf.

Kendall: The ones for -- for your dress?

Erica: Yes. Exactly. Would you mind looking on my desk in the library? Because I'm going to need them tomorrow.

Kendall: Sure. Yeah, yeah, I'll find them.

Erica: Thank you, honey.

Bianca: Kendall said that you were going to cancel the wedding if I didn't come back?

Erica: The wedding can wait.

Bianca: No, Mom. Come on.

Erica: Bianca, tell me everything from the beginning. Why did you pack up your bags and leave?

Bianca: You know, I was only going to be gone for, like, a day or maybe two.

Erica: Myrtle says you're not eating, so I’m going to ask you again. Now, truth. I'm begging you. Please, honey, tell me. Tell me what's wrong.

Simone: I'm going to give myself the gift of a good fantasy. Some perfect hero. Yeah. A sex God among men, worshiped by women. Oh. Smoke. Yes, smoke is good. Yeah, a rescue fantasy always works.

[Sirens]

Simone: Of course, he better hurry up because I could die of smoke inhalation. Help! Help!

Sean: Simone?

Simone: Help!

Sean: Simone!

Simone: Yes! Help me! Oh, Seany? Wait, no, I don't need -- I don't need you. I need a fireman!

Sean: Simone de Boudoir, I've come to claim you as my own.

Simone: Are you going to cuff me?

Sean: Oh, yes. You see, ever since I first arrested you in that hooker lineup --

Simone: Yeah?

Sean: I've lusted for you.

Simone: Lusted? What is wrong with me?

Sean: Nothing. Not a thing. Simone, you are perfection. We're going to share a perfect love.

Simone: We are?

Sean: Live a perfect life.

Simone: Yeah?

Sean: And we're going to have perfect children.

Simone: Huh?

Sean: I want a huge family -- four girls and four strapping boys.

Simone: Oh, God!

Sean: And I want a large dog --

Simone: No! Officer Lyman? Oh, girl, you have gone mad. Seriously mad. Oh, oh.

Alfred: Liza, I've been of this opportunity to expose myself, to have you see the man that I am now, standing tall and proud of my lot in life. Oh. Oh.

Liza: Alfred?

Tad: God, this is touching. This is just -- you know what this is? It's a reunion of two high school sweethearts.

Liza: No, you know, Alfred and I were never that.

Alfred: No, no, no. She was always too distracted by your risqué shenanigans.

Tad: Yeah, well, those days are over.

Liza: Oh, they sure are.

[Liza screams]

Liza: No!

Alfred: I'm sorry, Liza. My contact -- my contact lens. It was right by your foot.

Tad: You know, Alfred, they got soft ones now. They don't pop out of your eye.

Alfred: They have soft ones?

Liza: Why didn't you just wear your glasses, Alfred?

Alfred: Liza, you know what they say about guys who wear glasses.

Tad: No, no, but, listen, why don't you tell her all about it over dinner.

Alfred: Right. Liza, I don't know about you, but I'm into a meaty rack with -- a nice, meaty rack dripping with barbecue sauce.

Liza: Excuse me?

Alfred: Tickle My Ribs -- it's the new restaurant on Sycamore Street. They have all you can eat and free salad and those curly cheese fries, and it's all -- well, you don't have to worry about the price. I will pick up the check.

Liza: Well, Alfred, that sounds tempting, but --

Alfred: And I brought you something.

Liza: Really, you shouldn't have.

Alfred: That's pleather, by the way, for easy cleaning. Just soap and water, no astringent.

Tad: Hmm? Hmm?

Liza: And checks.

Alfred: Mm-hmm. Well, as Vice President of Pine Valley Savings And Trust, I can offer you free checking. Fill out a form, start using one of those.

Liza: Teddies on them?

Alfred: Well, back at school, you always -- you were crazy about teddies.

Liza: Teddies, right.

Tad: Yeah, you used to look so good in them.

Liza: You really shouldn't have, Alfred. Really.

Alfred: That's just a preview, Liza. There are bigger and better things to come. All you have to do is give me a whirl.

Tad: A whirl? You. Don't be so bashful. You deserve the whole loop-de-loop. Know what I'm talking about, huh? Don't you think so, Liza? Whoo, I can sense the karma. There's vibes here. This is great.

Liza: Die! Die, you sucker!

[Liza screams]

Liza: You better play along, or you're going to die.

Alfred: Liza, no! Don't hurt him!

[Liza screams]

Alfred: Let me call for backup. I'll call 911 --

Liza: Oh, did I -- did -- oh, did this happen? Oh, you know, I thought I'd beaten this.

Tad: No, just me.

Liza: I'm so embarrassed that you saw one of my episodes.

Alfred: Just let me get my cell phone.

Liza: No, you know, I -- I have these episodes, and I have to be honest with you, Alfred, this isn't the first time that I've snapped and attacked Tad.

Alfred: You never mentioned violence.

Tad: Oh, I thought she was over it, you know, that she was starting fresh.

Liza: You know what? I think it might have just been unwise for me to have champagne with my meds.

Alfred: You're on medication?

Liza: Yes, they determined that I cannot control my aggressive impulses.

Alfred: Just toward Tad?

Liza: No, towards all men that play an important role in my life.

Tad: Oh, Adam was lucky he got out of that marriage with his life.

Liza: I sort of feel like maybe one of these impulses is coming to the surface again. Maybe I can control it. Maybe I should just up my meds.

Alfred: No, no, no, Liza, you can't do that by yourself. I mean, what are you, crazy?

Liza: Alfred, you know what? I'll just double the dose. We'll drop into an all-night drugstore before we hit Tickle My Ribs.

Alfred: I must withdraw my invitation. Forgive me, Liza. I forgot, I have some matters to attend to of a business nature.

Liza: Well, I'll see you tomorrow morning when I come to open my account.

Alfred: Oh, Liza, I'm sorry, it completely slipped my mind. We're not taking on any new accounts at the moment. I'm sorry.

Liza: Well, what about my teddies?

Alfred: Oh, well, look, it's just that we just have too many teddies -- business to handle at the moment. We have all the money we can deal with, and I'll tell you what -- you can have the case.

Liza: Oh.

Alfred: And please, enjoy it in good mental health.

Tad: And for that, this man got contacts.

Liza: You know, there's a special wing in hell with your name on it. You know that, don't you?

Tad: You just tore that man's romantic dreams into tatters, and you speak to me of hell? Oh, Liza Colby, you should be ashamed. You should be embarrassed.

Liza: Oh, you haven't begun to see the shame. You should see the lovelies I'm going to pull out of the gutter who have been victimized by Tad the Cad. They'd love to have a shot at you!

Simone: How pathetic are you? You're such a failure in love. Reality and fantasy. From Carlos to Officer Lyman? Oh, how sad can you be? You know what? There is -- there is no great guy out there for you, Simone. Just get it through your damn head! You know, there's no hero that's going to rescue you. There's no white knight in shining armor. They don't exist anymore. Oh, God.

Singers: Hallelujah

Anna: And check all the accident reports, would you?

[Knock on door]

Anna: Yeah, come in?

Jack: Anna, everything's ok. Bianca's home. She's with Erica.

Anna: Oh, ok. It's ok. She's been found. Cancel that. Thank you.

Jack: Yeah, Kendall actually found her -- at the boathouse, of all places.

Anna: Oh, wow. Ok, so, just, you know, go be with her. I'll take care of all this.

Jack: Well, actually, Erica wants to be alone with her for a while. I just wanted to come by and let you know, of course.

Anna: Sure. I'll cancel the APB.

Jack: Ok, great. Thank you. Thank you so much for everything, really.

Anna: Not at all. Yeah, hold on, Sean, hold on. Jack, I hope this is a happy ending for Bianca.

Jack: Oh, me, too. Thanks again.

Anna: Yeah. Sorry, Sean. Pull back the APB on Bianca. She's been found. Yeah. Great. Thanks. Did Jack tell you? Good, come in.

David: No. What?

Anna: Bianca's been found. It's ok. She's at Erica’s.

David: What a relief. That's great.

Anna: And listen, you were wrong. If anything -- if something had happened to her, I would never have held you responsible.

David: But I would have been. I let her walk away when I knew that she needed help.

Anna: Why did you do that?

David: Bianca accused me of wanting to save her, because I couldn't save Leora.

Anna: Is that the only reason?

David: I keep screwing up, Anna. With everyone. With Bianca, with you.

Anna: Yeah, well, you can't expect everything to heal instantly.

David: No, listen to me. It's not going to work out with us. Not anymore. Not without Leora.

Anna: Is that why you came back?

David: I just want to end the pain, Anna.

Anna: What are you saying?

David: I'm saying I want to end it -- you and I. I want to end it while we can still walk away.

Bianca: I'm sorry that I scared you.

Erica: Oh, honey, I don't care about that at all. It's just your -- your health, your happiness that I'm concerned about. You know what? Maybe you'll feel better after some tea. Orange or mint?

Bianca: You know what? Either one would be great.

Erica: Ok. Ok.

Michael: Well, we meet again. Well, what's wrong? You don't look so happy to see me.

Bianca: Stop this!

Michael: In fact, you look like you've seen a ghost. Are you all right?

Bianca: You are not real. I'm going to get rid of you.

Michael: Well, after all we've shared, that's not very kind.

Bianca: I mean it. I am sick of this. You can't control me. You can't control my thoughts.

Michael: Sweetheart, you're not making any sense. What --

Bianca: No, no, no. You can't take one more step.

Michael: Why are you being so distant?

Bianca: You're not real. You don't exist! You are not here!

Michael: Well, of course I'm here. Why would you say I'm not? Here --

[Bianca gasps]

Bianca: Oh, my God! It's you.

Michael: In the flesh.

>> On the next "All My Children" --

Greenlee: I finally found the man of my dreams, and he's going to belong to me.

Man: Ciao, bella. May I be of some assistance?

Erica: Get out right now!

Kendall: If my mother does not kill you, Michael, I swear to God I will!
