Previously on "All My Children" --

Juan Pablo: Do you like it?

Greenlee: Yes.

Stuart: You are the proud owner of "the kiss." Your friend just bought it for you.

Greenlee: Where is he?

Stuart: Uh, he left.

Greenlee: I don't even know his name.

Jack: I want to see you caged like the animal you are for as long as the law allows.

Bianca: It's over between me and Lena. We can't ever go back to the way it was before.

Simone: Oh, well, well, well. Would you get a load of us.

Greenlee: I guess we all had the same idea.

Mia: What idea is that?

Greenlee: To look our best.

Simone: Not just our best. We all look hot.

Mia: Yeah, yeah. We do look hot, don't we?

Greenlee: Yeah, I figured since the voting for the contest starts on the 28th, reporters will be showing up for interviews.

Mia: Yeah, and Montel Williams walked in through those doors the other day and we weren't expecting all the airtime that he gave us.

Greenlee: Exactly. And someone else could come through those doors this week.

Simone: Ah. That's just a whole load of bull, and you know it. All three of us had the exact same idea. It's all about our private little bet. Yeah, we were all secretly hoping that maybe that guy of our dreams would walk through those elevator doors just like he did.

Mia: What?

Greenlee: Like who did?

Simone: Nobody, nobody. I am just saying that we all act tough, but we all have these romantic, mushy hearts. And so what? I mean, maybe, you know, those doors could open and the perfect man could walk right through them.

[Elevator doors open]

Mary: Hi. You all are looking lovely today.

Mia: Well, I've got some things to do. Excuse me.

Simone: Yeah, well, I don't, but I'll find something.

Mary: Hi. When you get a chance, tell that girl that I don't care if she had an affair with your -- Roger.

Greenlee: Mother, I'm busy.

Mary: I know. I'll be brief. This is beautiful. Where did you get this?

Greenlee: It was a gift.

Mary: Oh, from a secret admirer? You wish someone would give you something this lovely.

Greenlee: Can I walk you to the elevator?

Mary: Ok, I'll be brief. You realize tomorrow is Erica's wedding.

Greenlee: Mother, give it up. You're not going to get the best of Erica. I haven't, and neither will you.

Mary: Yes --

Greenlee: The only one who should be trying to stop this wedding is Jackson Montgomery.

Mary: That's exactly my point.

Greenlee: And he doesn't want to. And Jackson is none of your business.

Mary: Darling, he is. Now, I know you think I've lost my mind by insisting there's this bond between me and Jack after all these years --

Greenlee: But what?

Mary: I just hoped it wouldn't come to this. It's almost too embarrassing to have to share my most intimate thoughts with you.

Greenlee: Then please, don't.

Mary: But I don't have a choice. I want you to take this. This is a journal that I kept for the year before you were born. Read it.

Jack: Jack Montgomery here. Listen, I've got a job for you. Call me as soon as you get this.

Kendall: Well, he's very distinguished looking.

Maitre d': Yes, I understand. Miss, we have many distinguished-looking guests, but none fitting your description.

Kendall: Not with deep, dark eyes that seem to look right into your soul?

Maitre d': No, miss. No one like that.

Kendall: Well, I mean, how can you be so sure?

Maitre d': Because we have had inquiries already about this gentleman from several other women.

Kendall: Oh. Ok. Well, let me tell you -- I have a card for you. Here's my card. If you can please, please give me a call and let me know if this man shows up.

Maitre d': I'll do my best, miss.

Kendall: Thank you.

Michael: Did you ever look this hard for me? You know, I used to be your knight in shining armor. Remember the falling snow in aspen? Our first magical kiss?

Kendall: Get out of my face, Michael.

Michael: And now you threaten me with letter openers, break vases over my head, and invent charges to send me to prison.

Kendall: Yeah, well, maybe there you'll learn what it feels like to deal with perverts.

Michael: It's personal with you, isn't it? The fine line between love, hate.

Kendall: No, it's all hate. 100% hate.

Jack: Michael, Michael, Michael. We really do need to have a talk.

Erica: But, Val, I want them there long before that. All right, all right, Val, but just make sure, ok? Oh, the hors d'oeuvres.

Opal: Erica, please, just put down the phone so that I can finish your manicure.

Erica: No, just one more phone call.

Opal: That's what you said a half an hour ago.

Erica: But tomorrow's the wedding day.

Opal: Yes, thank the lord, and you are driving Val straight to the funny farm, not to mention yourself.

Erica: You're right. Ok.

Opal: Of course I am right. Now, come on, just sit down and relax.

Erica: Oh. What's wrong with me? I mean, everything's going to be fine, absolutely fine. I mean, it's going to be perfect. And anyhow, Bianca's going to be there.

Opal: That is right. That is right. Now, dare I mention that deadly viper Mary Smythe?

Erica: Oh. The viper has been de-clawed.

Opal: Well, that's wonderful news. Then you can just get married tomorrow without a care in the world, right?

Erica: Hi!

Bianca: Oh, hi.

Opal: Hey there, honey. How would you like a nice, relaxing manicure?

Bianca: Oh, opal, I'm already relaxed, despite all of the security.

Erica: I know, honey. Of course you are. But they're going to be gone, you know, very, very soon.

Opal: Jack is just being protective, that's all.

Erica: Oh, and I love Jack for being so protective. But, honey, Michael can't hurt me again, really. No need for you to worry. Very soon he's going to be a distant memory.

Bianca: Mom, I just want you to enjoy your wedding day.

Erica: And I'm going to, honey. I mean, as long as you are happy and well, then I can't ask for anything more.

Bianca: You know, I think I'm going to make myself a sandwich. Do you guys want something?

Erica: Oh, sure. What a good idea. Ok, we'll have an early lunch before the rehearsal.

Opal: Great idea. "I'm going to make myself a sandwich." Those have got to be some of the most beautiful words in the English language.

Erica: Oh, you're not kidding.

Opal: Now, just let me get this top coat on, all right?

[Intercom buzzes]

Erica: Oh, I'm sorry.

Opal: Oh, lord.

Erica: I'll be right back. Yes?

Man: Miss Kane, there's a woman on her way up.

Erica: What? Who?

Man: Um, she's not on the list. A Lena Kundera.

Erica: All right, just -- I'll handle her.

Erica: All right, Lena. What are you doing here?

Lena: I'd like to see Bianca.

Erica: Not possible.

Lena: Why not? Myrtle told me she's here.

Erica: Wrong.

Lena: Look, I'm not leaving. I want to see Bianca, and I know she wants to see me.

Erica: No, wrong again. Bianca never wants to see you again. She told me so herself.

Lena: I'm not going anywhere until I see Bianca.

Erica: You came up here without permission. You are trespassing.

Lena: What are you going to do, have me arrested? Fine. In the meantime, I'll go from room to room looking for her.

Erica: You have no business here. You do not belong here. Now, whatever relationship you think you have with Bianca, she does not want to have anything to do with you.

Lena: You're lying.

Opal: You know, maybe you ought to just hit the road. We're getting ready for a wedding here, and --

Lena: That's really of no concern to me.

Opal: Yeah, well, I guess good manners aren't, either. Now, do you want to retrace your steps or am I going to have to do it for you?

Lena: Look, I'm sorry, I know how I must sound. But to be honest with you, I'm worried sick. Last time I saw Bianca, we were making plans. We were happy. And then next thing I know, she's running away from Myrtle's and I can't get any answers.

Opal: And you haven't talked to her since then?

Lena: No, she won't return my phone calls. I don't know why. If what Erica says is true, I think I should hear it from Bianca.

Erica: Opal, would you please leave us alone for a moment? You could go into the kitchen. You could put the TV on.

Opal: Oh. Uh, yeah.

Erica: Well, you're very good. I could see you almost had Opal convinced that you were telling the truth.

Lena: I was telling her the truth.

Erica: You're not going away, are you?

Lena: Not until I speak to Bianca.

Erica: Listen to me. The only thing I care about in the world is Bianca's happiness. So I guess that I'm going to have to guarantee yours, too.

Lena: What's that mean?

Erica: If you stop seeing Bianca for good, I will pay you $3 million.

Lena: $3 million?

Erica: All right, not high enough. Ok, I can go a little higher but I'm warning you, don't get greedy.

Michael: There's no problem here, Mr. Montgomery. I was just making small talk with your stepdaughter-to-be. I'm sorry. This town can be so incestuous.

Jack: Why don't we go and have a seat. There's something I'd like to tell you, and if you're smart you'll listen.

Michael: Oh, well, if this is about that frivolous lawsuit that you're prosecuting, I think you should talk to my lawyer.

Jack: You don't really want this to go to trial, Michael. Now, the deal I've offered you is more than fair.

Michael: Uh-huh. 10 years, minimum security.

Jack: We started at 25 years.

Michael: Yeah, we did, which tells me that your case is falling apart. So you know what, I'd rather see this through and hand you a very humiliating and public defeat.

Jack: But you won't. I'll win, and I guarantee you'll see prison time. Now, you think about it because this deal won't stay on the table very long.

Michael: Mm-hmm. So why are you offering it to me, then?

Jack: Why?

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Jack: To get rid of you as quickly as I can, of course.

Michael: Oh, so you and your harem can live happily ever after? Well, you know what, there's an even quicker way to get rid of me, Jack. If you drop the charges, I promise you you will never see me again.

Kendall: No. No, Jack, you can't do that. Michael belongs in prison.

Greenlee: Your diary? Am I to be spared nothing?

Mary: You have to take it.

Greenlee: Forget it. Reading that thing will put me right back on Lysistrata's couch.

Mary: You don't have to read the whole thing, just the passages that apply to Jackson. It will explain why I've been feeling the way I have lately.

Greenlee: Come on, mother. This is scary. Are you having your first senior moment? You do know that you're not in high school, don't you? I mean, grown women do not carry around their diaries or talk about the boys they have crushes on.

Mary: Jack was hardly a crush. He was --

Greenlee: What, what, what, Mr. Right? The one who got away? So what, mother? I have news for you -- he got away.

Mary: Yes, he did. To my lifelong sorrow. That's why it's so important that I make you understand the depth of my feelings for him.

Greenlee: All right, mother. You want to talk about depth of feeling, fine. But first let's talk about mine. Why is it that every time I start to put my life in order, there you are with a new melodrama, starring you?

Mary: Because it involves you.

Greenlee: Only insomuch as to make you feel better or more important.

Mary: Is it so terrible for me to need my daughter?

Greenlee: It's always what you need. This past year, my father died. My husband died. And where were you when I needed my mother?

Mary: I was there.

Greenlee: You showed up at the funerals and that's about it. Then you were off on your cruises for months, which would've been longer if the money had lasted.

Mary: Ok, it's not news that I'm a selfish person. That's why I'm trying to make up for it now.

Greenlee: It's too late. I don't expect anything from you anymore, so don't even try.

Mary: But I have to. This is my chance to make everything right. Ok, maybe not everything. Maybe not 26 years of neglect and dishonesty. But maybe I can make up for the dishonesty.

Greenlee: You know what, I don't need you anymore. I've lived this long without a mother.

Mary: Ok. So -- so you don't need a mother. But what if I could give you something else?

Greenlee: What?

Mary: It's all right here. If you would just read this, I would be able to give you a wonderful and lasting gift.

Kendall: Thank you.

Michael: Well, here's how I see it, Jack. You could drop the charges and save the taxpayers a lot of money and yourself even more humiliation.

Jack: You think I'm afraid to prosecute a case because I might lose?

Michael: This case is different, isn't it?

Jack: How's that?

Michael: We'll you're about to become Mr. Erica Kane. Soon the whole country is going to realize that she's pulling the strings and that you're prosecuting a case that should've died long before it hit the docket.

Jack: Michael, you're so deluded. You know, it's hard to believe that you're related to Alex Cambias in any way. You know, I once saw your father get up and walk out on a congressional investigation, just get up and walk about like he was some kind of slighted saint. But you -- you can't even have an off-the-record conversation without sinking yourself further in the slime.

Michael: Be smart, Jack. Now, either I can be on the first plane home, or you can keep me here. And if I do stay in Pine Valley, I will take away everything that matters to you and everything that you claim to love.

Lena: Just tell me one thing. Has it ever worked for you, paying off Bianca's girlfriends? Has it ever actually bought her an ounce of happiness?

Erica: You are not her girlfriend. You have never been her girlfriend. You are a con artist. You jumped from Michael Cambias' bed to Bianca to seduce her, lie to her, to betray her. So, please, don't act like you are insulted over $3 million because you've been traded for considerably less.

Lena: I know she's here. What if I call out her name?

Erica: Ok, I'm withdrawing my offer, and you will leave under your own power. Now. Fine.

Lena: Erica --

Man: Security.

Erica: Yes, I want you up here now. I need you, please. I need you to escort someone from the premises.

Man: Yes, ma'am.

Lena: Erica, please. Look, I know you're just as scared about Bianca as I am. You don't know what happened to her and you're blaming me and I'm blaming you, but really we should find out why she ran away.

Erica: Yes, I am blaming you. I lived through Bianca's illness with her. She wouldn't eat. She almost died. And now those feelings, those exact feelings are coming back because of you.

Lena: No, that's not making any sense.

Erica: Of course it makes sense. Here's the good sense in that. You got her to fall in love with you and then you lied to her, you betrayed her, you cheated her, and you stole from her.

Lena: Erica, she forgave me, I swear to you.

Erica: You have made my daughter sick again and you will not get out of her life?

Lena: Erica, I love Bianca. I would never hurt her.

Erica: Please, get her out of here. Get her out of here now.

Lena: Bianca! Bianca!

Erica: Get her out!

Guard: Come on.

Erica: She's never to come back here again. She is not a friend, she is not a family member -- none of those.

Bianca: Oh, my god! Lena!

Erica: Bianca --

Bianca: Let go of her. Let go of her now!

Bianca: Get your hands off of her! Let go of her now!

Erica: Bianca --

Bianca: Mom, tell them to let her go.

Erica: All right, all right. Yes.

Bianca: All right, tell them to leave, please.

Erica: All right, you can go.

Erica: Bianca, I did not mean to upset you, honey.

Bianca: I know. I know you didn't.

Lena: Your mother seems to have the wrong impression. I told her we postponed our trip to Prague because of the wedding, but she seems to think we've broken up. I told her she was wrong, but -- Bianca?

Bianca: Mom, can we have some privacy, please?

Erica: Honey --

Opal: Yeah, come on. We got to get that manicure finished before the wedding rehearsal anyway. Let's go.

Bianca: Please, sit down.

Lena: No, look, I can't sit down. Your mother just said that you don't want to be with me? That's what you told her, that I'm not your girlfriend? Oh, come on. Tell me it's not true.

Bianca: I can't do that.

Jack: Threatening the district attorney's family -- boy, you can't be that stupid, now, can you?

Michael: Come on, Jack. I'm not threatening anybody. I'm merely playing the character that Erica and Kendall created for me. Jack, I wouldn't hurt any of your women. You can ask Bianca.

Jack: You know what, let's wrap this up. Am I to understand you rejected the offer that I've made?

Michael: Well, Jack, my only threats, my only designs were made against Fusion and Enchantment. That's all I was ever talking about. But I am willing to forget that. Jack, I don't want your deal. Drop the charges and I'm out of here. Besides, I'm sick of this town, its needy women and their lap-dog men. Let's just end this right now, shall we?

Jack: You just have. So you call Marvin Shaw and you tell him you rejected my deal and I'll see him in court, all right? You realize, Cambias, you just traded a cushy country club cell for some serious hard time.

Michael: Well, I wouldn't count on that. The Cambias family is pretty powerful.

Jack: Yeah, they are. But your father has washed his hands of you, now, hasn't he? You know what that means? You're going to have to find your way through this all by yourself, and it comes down to just you and me, so --

Michael: Uh-huh.

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Michael: This could've been so easy, Jack.

Jack: Oh, it will be. You're going to be behind bars before long. In the meantime, you keep your distance from my family. You understand me, son?

Michael: Well, you can't exactly watch them every minute, now, can you?

Jack: No, but I can watch you every second. Listen, it's very inappropriate for us to be speaking this way, so why don't you take it on the shoe leather. Just don't think about leaving town, huh?

Michael: Fine. I'll stay. Have a good one. Oh -- and, Jack, lock up your sisters and your wives, huh?

Kendall: Jack, he scares the living hell out of me. Michael -- he deserves -- he deserves to be behind bars.

Jack: Yes, he does, so why are you doing your best to make sure he gets acquitted, Kendall?

Mia: Greenlee, we need you. There's, like, a thousand entries from Chicago alone back there.

Greenlee: Sorry, mother.

Mary: Just one page. One page is all it would take, my sweetheart, and then you would for the first time in your life have a real father. And I would finally have a man I could love and respect.

Greenlee: Are you still here?

Mary: You don't have to be so cruel.

Simone: Yeah, she does.

Mary: Maybe your friends will understand. You know, Jackson Montgomery was once a very dear friend of mine -- actually, he was much more -- and you would think that my daughter would take me at my word when I say that his happiness is a great concern of mine now. But, no, she dismisses everything I say as the rantings and ravings of a rich, bored widow.

Greenlee: I do not.

Simone: Ugh, you know, how long are you going to use your, you know, poor, pitiful, widow bit? You know, everyone knows your marriage was over when Greenlee was teething.

Greenlee: Hey, back off about my father.

Simone: Ok, sorry.

[Phone rings]

Simone: I'll get it. Fusion cosmetics, sexiest man contest.

Man: Good morning. May I speak with Greenlee Du Pres, please?

Simone: Oh. It's for you. Pompous loser on line three.

Greenlee: Greenlee Du Pres.

Juan Pablo: Remember me?

Greenlee: Well, this is a surprise. I didn't think I'd hear from you again.

Juan Pablo: I'm not the kind of man who disappears.

Greenlee: I can't imagine better news. Ahem. So, you obviously know who I am. Will you please tell me your name?

Juan Pablo: Juan Pablo Renato Ruiz De Vasquez.

Greenlee: Sounds like royalty.

Juan Pablo: I have met some royals. I'm much nicer.

Greenlee: Where are you right now?

Juan Pablo: Right now, at the Valley Inn bar, but I am --

Greenlee: Don't move, I'll be right there. All right, mother, I got to go. Take your diary and go home.

Mary: Greenlee, wait. There's -- there's a letter here. I never intended for you to see this, but I was wrong about it. If you read this, your whole life will change.

Kendall: Excuse me, I have done more than anyone to make sure that Michael is put behind bars.

Jack: Kendall, please don't make another scene.

Kendall: What scene did I make?

Jack: The scene you made with Michael in the lobby.

Kendall: Yeah, well, he provoked me.

Jack: Yes, he provoked you and he's trying to discredit you and he's trying to make sure that the charges that you and your mother brought against him will never see the light of day, they'll be thrown out of court.

Kendall: I'm sorry, I can't help it. The man just makes me so angry.

Jack: Well, don't play into his hands, Kendall.

Kendall: I'm not going to let him get off, Jack. The man is a sexual predator. Ok, and it's gotten worse. I can see it in his eyes. It's like he knows that he can get away with it now.

Jack: Yes, he's overconfident. And that means very soon now he's going to stub his toe and he's going to fall, and I'm going to be there to catch him and put him behind bars where he can never hurt another woman again.

Kendall: Ok, good. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Did I -- did I mess up your case?

Jack: I don't know. Look, just realize when he gets into court, what he's going to try to prove is that there's some kind of a -- a vendetta against him.

Kendall: I hate him. I hate him so much. You know, Erica says that she doesn't blame me for bringing Michael back to town, but the fact is I did.

Jack: I know that Erica realizes that he played you. He used you.

Kendall: Well, so you realize that?

Jack: I tell you what I realize. You and your mother are trying to work things out. And very soon now, we're all going to be part of a strange, convoluted family and as far as I'm concerned, we should all be working together.

Kendall: Well, that's -- that's what I'm trying to do.

Jack: Good.

Kendall: But I'm just -- I'm not counting on anything changing.

Jack: Well, you can count on me just as long as you do the right thing, Kendall.

Kendall: I appreciate that. And I'm -- I'm trying to do right by Bianca. I just wish I knew what that was.

Jack: Don't you think she's just going through a tough time because of Lena?

Kendall: I don't know, I don't know. I feel like it's something more than Lena. I don't know who or what, but something has Binky pretty rattled.

Michael: Oh -- father. Hi. Is this -- is this a good time?

Alexander: As it happens, I'm a captive audience.

Michael: Yeah. Well, listen, I hate to complain, but Marvin is doing an abysmal job for me.

Alexander: I'd say Marvin more than earned his retainer by having them grant you bail.

Michael: Yeah, well, he hasn't made Jackson Montgomery drop the charges, and they're bogus. I'm being persecuted because they hate me.

Alexander: Stop whining. It grates on my ear.

Michael: Look, father, I really need you to take charge of this. If you could just come to town in person and make this all go away --

Alexander: I have no intention of getting mixed up in another one of your messes. As far as I'm concerned, you're damn lucky they're only going after you for white-collar crimes.

Michael: Well, what is that supposed to mean?

Alexander: I'm talking about the two women in Pine Valley who are alleging you tried to rape them.

Michael: Oh, my god, father! They are lying!

Alexander: Yeah, like that woman in Milan was lying?

Michael: Yes! Women lie. That's what they do. I would never force myself on any woman.

Alexander: Michael, I wish I could believe you, but I know better. Just how many women do you intend to abuse before you get caught?

Bianca: I can't see you anymore.

Lena: Why?

Bianca: Because that's what I want.

Lena: No, it's not. No, I don't believe that. I felt bad before about blaming your mother, but I was right, wasn't I? She got her way.

Bianca: No, this has nothing to do with my mother.

Lena: I don't believe that, Bianca. She's been working on this for months. And I didn't think you were listening to her, but what changed? I mean, come on, are you going to break up with me just to be a good daughter, or has Erica finally persuaded you that I am a common criminal and a cheat?

Bianca: No, Lena, I don't think that of you. I think that you're -- I don't think badly of you, ok? I -- I just don't want a relationship right now, not with anyone.

Lena: But why not? What -- what happened? What did I do?

Bianca: Nothing. You didn't do anything wrong, ok? It just -- it didn't work out. Lena, you don't need me to be happy. You can find someone --

Lena: Stop it! Don't tell me who I need to be happy. I need you, ok? We settled that. Bianca, why are you lying to me?

Bianca: I'm not.

Lena: Yes, you are. Look, something happened, something really big, and you're just not telling me.

Bianca: No, ok? God, please don't make this so hard on me.

Lena: It can only be your mother. I mean, she -- she's the one who's been working on you, who's been trying to make you feel guilty.

Bianca: It's not my mother. It's not.

Lena: She's the only one you've been speaking to. She's the only one who has that kind of power over you.

Bianca: You're wrong, Lena! You're very wrong.

Lena: Look, you love me. Now, you can tell me to go away a million times, but I don't believe that you don't love me. What is it, Bianca? I mean, if it's not your mother, is it me? Is it something I did? Just tell me. I won't do it again. Is it someone else? Let me know. We can fix that. Just -- god, tell me what it is. Bianca, don't make me leave. We can get through anything together. Anything.

Jack: Kendall, hang on just a second, please. Will you have a seat for just a moment?

Kendall: Sure.

Jack: Thanks. Now, do you really think that Bianca's heart can't be broken as easily as yours has been?

Kendall: Did I say anything like that?

Jack: No, but you have to realize that Bianca and Lena have had to overcome a lot of obstacles, obstacles that you and I will never have to deal with.

Kendall: Is this a fatherly lecture on alternative love?

Jack: Yeah. If you want to see it that way, that's exactly what it is.

Kendall: Fine, that's great, but I want to tell you -- I looked in Bianca's eyes, and I saw just how much she was hurting over Lena. So much that I went and I got Aidan and I took him to the Cayman Islands just to prove that Lena hadn't betrayed Bianca one more time.

Jack: I'm aware of that.

Kendall: So what I'm saying is, yes, I can see that Bianca would be hurt if Lena dumped her or double-crossed her. But that's not what I think is going on with Bianca.

Jack: In which case, I apologize. I misunderstood.

Kendall: Fine. But if you're trying to get closer to your two new stepdaughters, then maybe the one you should start with is Bianca.

Jack: Ok. Point taken.

Kendall: Good, and when you talk to her, you should start by asking her why she was burning her clothes in a park all alone one night.

Jack: Burning her clothes?

Kendall: Yes, in a garbage can, at a park, all alone. It completely freaked me out.

[Phone rings]

jack: Excuse me. Yeah, hang on just one second. I'm going to have to take this.

Kendall: Sure. Go ahead.

Jack: But, listen, I really do want to pick up where we left off later, ok?

Kendall: Of course. We are going to be family now, so --

Jack: That's right. Thank you.

Kendall: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, it's him.

Jack: Thanks for getting back to me. I need you to do something for me, and I need it done fast.

Alexander: Michael, are you there?

Michael: Yeah. Yeah, I'm here. I'm just -- I'm just sorry that you choose to believe the worst of me.

Alexander: Yes, yes. Michael, do something for me.

Michael: Yeah, what is it?

Alexander: I'm having trouble connecting with the Geneva office from this phone. Please call and tell them I'm stranded in the desert at the present, about 100 miles off Las Vegas.

Michael: What? What -- what happened? Are you all right? What happened?

Alexander: Well, the blasted tow truck couldn't handle the limo, so my driver is off with the trucker to find some part.

Michael: But you're all right?

Alexander: Yes, yes. Just call them and tell them I'll be in touch with them as soon as I --

[motorcycle approaches]

Alexander: Good god, what was that?

Michael: Father. Father.

Man: Can I help you?

Lena: Come on. Nothing you can tell me would be worse than never seeing you again.

Bianca: It's nothing that you did, Lena, and it's not my mother. Please don't make me say, "it's me, I'm just not good enough for you."

Lena: Oh, please. That's just ridiculous and you know it.

Bianca: Yeah, I know, but you want me to say something and I have nothing that I can say. You just have to accept that it's over.

Lena: I don't accept it. I'll never accept it. Do you really want to do this? You'd rather send me away than let me know what happened?

Bianca: Yeah, that's right. I want you to go away.

Lena: Ok. It won't do you any good. I'll find out why you're doing this. Whatever it is, I'll know.

Bianca: No, just -- look, you're going to be much better off if you just move on, find somebody else --

Lena: Oh, stop it. Bianca, I don't want anybody else. I love you. I've never loved anyone. When you loved me back, I -- I couldn't believe my luck. So i can't just let you go. If you think i can, then you're just beginning to know me.

Bianca: Goodbye, Lena.

Lena: No. This is far from goodbye.

Bianca: Hey! Are you all done? Can I see?

Erica: Sure.

Bianca: Oh, wow. Gosh. Beautiful. That's one of ours, isn't it?

Erica: It's one of yours.

Opal: Yeah, it's making us a mint of money.

Erica: Absolutely. You ok, honey?

Bianca: Oh, my goodness -- the sandwiches! We finished them. Do we still have time?

Erica: Do you want to have lunch?

Bianca: Of course. Yeah, I want to be good and strong for your big day tomorrow. I want it to be the most perfect day for you, mom.

Erica: Oh. Ok.

Bianca: Getting hungry.

Erica: Oh, good.

Bianca: What kind did they make?

Mary: Greenlee, please.

Greenlee: Sorry, mother. No diary, no letter.

Mary: Greenlee --

Greenlee: Someone's waiting for me right now and that's all I care about.

Mia: Ooh --

Mary: Greenlee?

Mia: Who is it? Your new guy?

Mary: New guy?

Simone: Considering that she's going to ignore a letter that's going to change her life, I would imagine it's a pretty special new guy.

Mia: Well, that leaves us all dressed up with no place to go.

Simone: Oh, hey, hey, hey. You're forgetting about our first semifinalist for the sexy man in America contest.

Mia: Oh. Let me at that play button.

Mary's voice: "Oh, Jack, if there were only a way for us to be together with our child, I'd be so happy. But I know it's impossible and my heart aches for what might have been. I'm going to marry Roger next week unless you stop me. All my love, Mary."

Mary: Now you'll know the truth, darling. Now everyone will know the truth.

On the next "All My Children" --

Bianca: Everything is fine.

David: Everything except you.

Reggie: Get out of here before I forget I'm the DA's kid and do something illegal.

Tad: Do you honestly expect me to believe you're not here to seduce me?

Man: Sorry, pal. Nobody could fix this. You're coming with me.
