Previously on "All My Children" --
David: Did Michael hurt you? Did he try to do anything to you?
Bianca: No, David, he didn't do anything to me.
Erica: You discovered that you may have a daughter.
Jack: No, I do have a daughter, but you didn't think I needed to know that, did you?
Tad: Greenlee! Greenlee!
Greenlee: Take me away from here.
Maggie: Is Michael gone?
Anna: Yeah. I had an officer follow him just to make sure he left the property. And I really tried to put the fear of God into him, so I don't think he'll be bothering you, Maggie.
Anna: Yeah. He said you pulled a knife on him. Did you? Why?
Maggie: Because -- because he was acting crazy and he was frantic. Boyd and Aidan threw him in the dumpster, and he missed the wedding, so --
Anna: So he goes after you? He's such a coward. That doesn't make him any less dangerous.
Maggie: No. We know he's dangerous.
David: Well, he's gone now, so you girls can just relax.
Anna: I really wish I had something that I could hold him on, you know. Did he hurt you, Maggie?
Maggie: No, he didn't hurt me.
Anna: Are you ok, Bianca?
Bianca: The only thing that Iím not ok about is what happened to my mother today. My problems are nothing compared to hers.
Anna: No, of course.
David: Yeah, but still, Bianca, it would be great if you could help Anna in some way.
Anna: Yeah. Michael Cambias should be in jail after everything he's done.
Bianca: Yes, but Iím sorry, I can't help you.
Anna: You sure? Did he say something or threaten you? Did he touch you?
Maggie: Bianca, tell her what Michael did to you. It's not too late.
Simone: Ok, do you have the press releases?
Mia: Right here. "Fusion's Sexiest Man Contest hits high gear. Round one selects the first of the five semifinalists."
Simone: Ok, ok, so we're straight with the plan?
Mia: Right. We talk up the contest, how Americaís loving us, and how we're voting for a contestant every week.
Simone: Right, but then we really fish around and see if Greenlee is really that close to winning the bet.
Mia: Right. Unless she's already sacked Juan Pablo, in which case we won't have to fish because she'll tell us.
Simone: Yeah, but she's nowhere near that lucky already, ok?
Mia: You never know.
Simone: Let's go. Hey, Greenlee -- oh, dear Lord, what happened?
Tad: We just left you a message.
Simone: Where is she?
Liza: We don't know. That's why we called you.
Simone: Oh, my God. Ok, burnt photographs -- what, this is another sad moment out of her tragic life? She's really taking this whole, you know, drama queen thing to a new level.
Mia: She's probably just trying to impress Juan Pablo.
Liza: No, no, no, no, no. This is serious, guys. Greenlee found out that her real father is Jackson Montgomery.
Simone: Her real father?
Tad: Yeah. Mary's managed to keep it a secret until now.
Mia: Oh, my God. Poor Greenlee. She must be in shock.
Tad: Well, she's taken off. We think it's a good idea to find her before she does something she can't take back.
Juan Pablo: I'll pour us both a brandy.
Greenlee: I don't need a brandy. I need you.
Juan Pablo: We have all the time in the world, unless you're wanted in surgery.
Greenlee: Funny you should say that, because I did save a man's life recently.
Juan Pablo: You did?
Greenlee: Mm-hmm. A man respected and admired by the world. And yet, all it took was a prick in my finger to save his life.
Juan Pablo: Wow. I'm having a very difficult time understanding you tonight.
Greenlee: Then Iíll make it simple. What's Argentinean for "I want you"? Never mind. I'll show you myself.
Juan Pablo: I believe you want to prove something to someone. Am I correct?
Erica: You know that Mary Smythe is a liar. You know that.
Jack: I don't give a damn about Mary. I want to hear the truth from you.
Erica: Well, I just think this is way too horrible. To find that there is nothing you don't think that Iím capable of.
Jack: I love you, Erica. God knows I love you more than any other man has ever loved you, but I know that when you feel threatened you can become a world-class liar. And when Mary said she wanted me back, you felt threatened, bigtime.
Anna: What is it, Bianca? Did Michael Cambias do something to you tonight?
David: You know, perhaps it would be easier if you just speak with Anna.
Anna: We can do that.
David: Yeah. Well, we'll go outside, and we'll come back when you want.
Bianca: No, wait, stop. Where is everybody going? Look, Michael Cambias came in here tonight smelling like garbage, but he didn't do anything to me.
David: But if he had, Bianca, it's not going to serve anything to keep it to yourself.
Anna: We can help you, you know, if you --
Maggie: Yeah, that's true.
Bianca: I'm not the one who needs help, ok? My mother -- can you just imagine how she feels right now? I mean, this afternoon, she stood right here, and she was about to be married. And all of that was blasted away by horrible lies.
David: Bianca --
Bianca: She held it all right in her hand, and it was snatched away from her. She's the one who's suffering right now, not me.
Erica: Jack, isn't all that matters that we love each other?
Jack: It should be. I just find it odd, Erica, that before Mary came into the picture, you were having doubts.
Erica: I was? Never.
Jack: Oh, yeah, yeah. Sure, you were. You wanted to postpone our wedding, and then when Mary showed up, all of a sudden, you couldn't get me down that aisle to that altar fast enough.
Erica: Because you got ill, because I realized that we were just wasting time.
Jack: No. No, I was ill before. It's when I had my relapse and I needed that transfusion and that rare donor was found -- that's when things started to change.
Erica: Jack, I'm the one who went on TV to beg for a donor for you. The only thing that changed is that I just didn't want to lose you.
Jack: So you lied to me?
Erica: I mean because you almost died.
Jack: But I didn't die. Instead, I got stronger every day. That transfusion saved me. Greenlee's blood saved me.
Erica: And I am so happy for that. But how would I have known it was Greenlee? All the donors were anonymous.
Jack: Yeah. You know, I heard a lot of that. I heard it from everybody. I heard it from -- from Opal. She came to my hospital room to discourage me from finding out who my blood donor was. She was working with you on this, wasn't she?
Erica: Opal is my good friend, but Opal has a mind of her own, as you well know.
Jack: I do know that. I also know that Opal doesn't like to lie, so you must have had to work pretty hard to get her to go along with this.
Erica: Boy, I just can't believe that you think there are no limits to what I'm capable of doing.
Jack: Don't get me wrong. I know this was hard for you, too. You remember when we went to the police station to get Reggie, and you had that little meltdown about keeping me from my own child?
Erica: Yeah, I meant Reggie.
Jack: That's what you said. But you seemed pretty damned relieved when I said I was fine with the family I had. I couldn't be happier if I had my own flesh-and-blood children.
Erica: Well, isn't that true?
Jack: Aw, that's not the point, Erica. The point is you knew that Greenlee was mine. You knew it then.
Erica: I had no way to know that. The only thing I knew is that Mary Smythe said she was yours. Big deal, Mary Smythe said it. Look, we can go around and around and around all day if you want to. The only thing I can do is just deny the accusations.
Jack: Oh, stop, stop, stop right there. We're going around and around, but I don't actually hear you denying anything.
Erica: Well, I just --
Jack: Now, wait before you say another word. Just know this -- if you deny something that I know to be the God's honest truth, you will never see me again.
Kendall: Where's Greenlee? What's going on?
Mia: She burned and ran.
Kendall: Oh, my God. What happened? What happened?
Liza: Well, Kendall, you can see what kind of shape she's in. That's why we're worried about her.
Simone: Yeah. God, you must have just absolutely gone crazy when you found out.
Mia: Erica's been vicious before, but this is just --
Kendall: Wait, wait, hold on. Excuse me?
Simone: Well, I mean, Erica -- I mean, to keep this from Jackson and Greenlee -- I mean, that's violent.
Kendall: No, wait a minute. You think Ericaís the villain here? What about Mary Smythe? She's the one who kept her mouth shut all these years. So back off my mother, ok? She was trying to do the right thing for Jack and for Greenlee.
Greenlee: You know, you and I are going to have to get on the same wavelength soon, or it's adios, muchachos.
Greenlee: Look at the moon. Isn't it romantic?
Juan Pablo: I doubt many people come to Atlantic City for the moon.
Greenlee: You're probably right. Do you gamble?
Juan Pablo: I never gamble against the house.
Greenlee: That's smart.
Juan Pablo: Mm-hmm.
Greenlee: Did you learn that from experience?
Juan Pablo: No. My father taught me.
Greenlee: Well, what else -- what else did your father teach you?
Juan Pablo: Oh, a lot. The name of stars, how to play polo, how to negotiate with merchants, respect for a woman, loyalty, history, family --
Greenlee: My God, what a know-it-all. Did your father never shut up? Is he still alive?
Juan Pablo: Yes. He is. Why?
Greenlee: No reason. I'm being a brat.
Greenlee: Please dance with me.
Maggie: So these cheesy puffs are actually really good when they're cold.
Bianca: You don't have to make small talk. Just tell me what a coward you think I am.
Maggie: Hey, I do not think that you are a coward. I think that you're extremely brave. And that's why I will support you. I can't even imagine what you're going through right now.
Bianca: Thank you.
Maggie: And trust you to know what you need to do however long it takes.
Bianca: Can you just imagine how my mother would feel after everything that she's been through today if I told her what happened to me just to make myself feel better?
Maggie: Well, if you're going to put everyone else in the world first, then Iím just going to be here for you, always.
Bianca: It's not an excuse, I hope, to rat me out.
Maggie: No. Actually, it's so you'll help me finish these cheese puffs.
Bianca: Thanks. I'm not hungry.
Maggie: Come on, you need to eat.
Bianca: I'll eat later.
Maggie: You almost passed out before Michael came in here, ok? So now help me eat these before I feel like the oinker from Green Bay.
Bianca: All right. It's the least I can do.
Anna: What did Michael Cambias do to Bianca? There were other people here. He wasn't alone with her.
David: Anna, it didn't happen tonight.
Anna: Well, when?
David: I don't know. I don't know, I can't be certain when anything happened, but I believe that Michael got to her.
Anna: And did what?
David: The worst.
Anna: What makes you think that?
David: Bianca was in a state of panic when we walked in there earlier, and we caught Michael with his hands on Maggie, right? I mean, you didn't see -- you didn't see her. You were off to the side speaking with Michael, and I could see her face.
Anna: Are you sure about this, David?
David: No, I -- I can't be 100% sure about it, but I -- look, but I am sure that Biancaís been acting very peculiar lately, and -- and I do know that she confided something to Maggie, and I believe that Maggie really wants to tell me what's going on, but she can't.
Anna: No, she canít. Not if she promised Bianca, she canít.
David: No, no, she can't, and we can't force her to tell us.
Anna: That would just make it worse.
David: Look, I've decided Iím not going to the surgical conference in Santa Barbara.
Anna: No, you should go.
David: No, are you kidding? I can't just go tomorrow. Not if Biancaís pain is what I think it is.
Anna: I think that's precisely why you should go. I think that you need a couple of days of just being the great Dr. Hayward. You know, you'll give your speech, and you'll talk shop. You'll come back, you'll feel much better. A little better.
David: All right. You're right, you're right. And I know you'll take care of Bianca.
Anna: Oh, I will if I can.
David: And I know there's not much I can do at this point. I mean, not until she opens up to us, at least.
Anna: No, not yet. Not until she's ready.
Anna: Maybe when you come back.
David: When I come back?
David: Well, that is the one good thing about going to this conference. Knowing that Iíll have you to come back to, waiting for me.
Anna: I'll be here.
David: I'm not going to take this for granted, Anna. You're the one thing in my life that I really can be grateful for.
Anna: Whatever happens next, we'll face it together.
Michael: Father, where the hell are you?
Ryan: You don't look so good. When was the last time you saw a doctor?
Alexander: Michael, what have you done now?
Michael: Well, I haven't done anything, Father. Look, it's just that this Pine Valley is the cesspool of America. I need to get out of here.
Alexander: In other words, you're ready to jump bail? That's how you make me proud of you?
Michael: You know, Dad, I don't ask a lot from you, but everything's on the line right now. I can't even get a commercial flight out of here. But, Dad, I need your private jet to take me away from these people. Please.
Kendall: You guys are a bunch of hypocrites.
Simone: Uh --
Simone: Yeah, that's right. That's exactly what I am.
Kendall: Yeah, that is what you are. You guys would have done exactly the same thing that Erica did.
Simone: Oh, yeah, yeah, that's right, yeah.
Kendall: You know what? After decades of being too proud and maybe too blind, Erica finally realized that Jackson was the right man for her. She's not going to let some lying snake like Mary Smythe snatch it all away from her and neither would you.
Mia: But we might let Jackson decide for himself.
Simone: Look, Erica -- she just doesn't want to share.
Kendall: No, that's not it.
Simone: Oh, come on, we all know that she's selfish.
Kendall: No, that's not what it's about!
Tad: Hey, guys, if we start arguing about Erica, we're going to be here all night, ok?
Liza: Yeah, come on, we just got to find Greenlee.
Simone: That's right, we do.
Tad: I think we should start with that Argentinean cheek-kisser, Don Carlos de huevos rancheros, whatever his name is.
Mia: He's right.
Simone: Yeah, I don't know. She's probably, you know, crying on his shoulder right now.
Mia: Of course.
Kendall: Wait a minute. What? Don who? What Argentinean?
Liza: His name is Juan Pablo.
Simone: Yes, our mystery man.
Mia: Our Latin lover/savior. He's the same guy.
Simone: Yeah, one guy and four clueless Fusion girls.
Mia: He's this Argentinean gazillionaire who wants to invest in Fusion.
Simone: And Greenleeís already done the tango.
Mia: Yeah, but she said she's not interested in him --
Simone: Oh, please.
Mia: She's full of it.
Simone: She wants to win the bet and with him.
Mia: We can't let her win the bet.
Simone: No. We have money at stake.
Tad: You guys are all heart.
Mia: It's not that we're not concerned about her. It's just that we can't let her win the bet.
Tad: It's like working with a flock of chickens.
Tad: Come on, let's just canvass the places that we already know that she's been to, ok? If anything happens, just --
Tad: Call me on your cell phones. Come on, go. Here, this is for you.
Kendall: What --
Tad: Liza, do me a favor, ok? Just man the phone, all right?
Liza: Yeah. Listen, are you ok? I mean, don't feel like you have to rush out.
Kendall: I'm fine.
Liza: Because, you know, that was some speech, you standing with Erica.
Kendall: Well, she happens to be my mother. Remember?
Jack: So, please, just tell me the truth.
Erica: Yes, I lied to you, at first, because I thought that Maryís story was outrageous, completely outrageous, and I thought it was completely outrageous that she thought that she could just walk into our lives and take you away from me.
Jack: And then?
Erica: And then it was just as you said. She had a secret weapon and the blood transfusion that seemed to prove it. And, yes, I begged Opal to help me keep this from you. And, yes, it almost killed me to deceive you like this.
Jack: But you forced yourself.
Erica: Please don't do this, Jack. Please don't look at me like that. Don't you know that I only wanted what was best for us?
Jack: As defined by you.
Erica: Yes. I had to make that decision by myself. You were in a coma. You were fighting for your life. And I know you, Jack. I know what an honest and good man you are, and I know that you will always do the right thing no matter how much it hurts you, and I also know that Mary Smythe is a destructive woman, and she used her own child to bait you, to try to trap you.
Jack: Trap me?
Erica: Yes, trap you. So why would I ever, ever let a woman like that near the man that I love?
Jack: And it never occurred to you to ask me what I thought about all this?
Erica: Jack, I know you. I know that if you found out that your own child was raised by such hideous parents that would break your heart.
Jack: But, Erica, it's my heart. She's my child.
Erica: She's a grown woman, Jack, and she doesn't want to be your daughter. You heard what she said at the wedding in front of everybody. Jack, she -- she practically spit on you.
Jack: Well, how would you feel? She's been lied to her whole life.
Erica: But not by me. I just found out about this just a couple of weeks ago. It was her mother, her own mother, Mary Smythe, who lied to her her whole life.
Jack: I'm -- Iím well aware of that.
Erica: So be angry with her. Jack, she kept her own child from the best father she ever could have had. And she kept you from your own child just because she thought you didn't have any money. Jack, don't you understand? I -- I did this -- it was a situation that was too late to remedy. I wanted to save you any more suffering. Yes, I lied to you, but only because I love you.
Jack: I'm going to find Greenlee.
Erica: Wait, Jack. Please, we have to talk about this.
Jack: No. I'm all talked out.
Erica: But, Jack, you can't just go now. You can't just leave me here like this. I mean, I'm -- Iím still in my wedding dress. We're not married yet.
Jack: I have to find my daughter.
Erica: But -- but, Jack, I -- well, you can't just leave me like this.
Alexander: I'm in the middle of the desert, hitching a ride on the back of a motorcycle, and my brain feels hotter than the hinges of hell!
Michael: What are you doing on the back of a motorcycle?
Alexander: My limo broke down.
Michael: Right, right, listen, Dad, please, about what I was saying, I will do anything you want me to. Just get me out of here before the roof caves in on me, please.
Alexander: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Where the hell is my iced tea? Can't anyone here manage something as simple as that?
Ryan: You're done, old man! You're running on fumes.
Alexander: I'll tell you when Iím done. Now get me my iced tea, or Iíll buy this place and burn it down!
Juan Pablo: Wait, wait, wait, wait. It's not that I don't want to, Greenlee. I want you very much, but this is not right for you.
Greenlee: What do you care? You're a man.
Juan Pablo: Yeah, I'm a man, but I know this. Right now you aren't making love to me. You're trying to ignore something.
Greenlee: You don't know what you're talking about.
Juan Pablo: I don't feel you here.
Greenlee: Then Iíll try harder. You can't send me away. I want to make love to you.
Juan Pablo: It's not our time.
Greenlee: So what? I want to do it now.
Juan Pablo: I'm sorry. I won't help you hurt yourself.
Tad: Nobody's seen her at the pit or SOS.
Liza: Well, but that's good news.
[Elevator door opens]
Liza: Oh, maybe that's Kendall. Maybe she found something.
Jack: Did Greenlee do this?
Tad: It's not as bad as it looks, Jack.
Liza: Greenlee wasn't here. I mean, there's no reason to believe that she was hurt.
Mia: We're so sorry.
Simone: We've been out looking for her.
Tad: So far, we haven't come up with anything. We just started. We're also looking for a guy named Juan Pablo. We think she might be with him, but we don't know how to track him down.
[Elevator door opens]
Kendall: Jack, Jack, did you go to Erica?
Jack: No, please, donít. Please, please.
Kendall: Jack, you can't be mad at her. I understand she made a mistake, but you have to know that she loves you and --
Jack: Juan Pablo. Who the hell is Juan Pablo?
Tad: He's new in town. She's been out with him a couple of times.
Liza: He's a businessman. We've all met him. He's on the level.
Jack: My God, what a terrible day. It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life. Who would have thought it would turn out like this?
Greenlee: You think you know everything, don't you?
Juan Pablo: I only --
Greenlee: But why should you? I mean, your father taught you things. My father's a lie. My mother's a liar. My whole life's been nothing but a con job, with everyone in on it but me, and I was the punch line of a big fat joke.
Juan Pablo: It was your truth. That's all that matters.
Greenlee: I was a fool.
Juan Pablo: You are no one's fool.
Greenlee: I believed all the liars.
Juan Pablo: Then the shame is theirs, not yours.
Greenlee: But now I have nobody. I'm totally alone now, and I can't be. Juan Pablo, please. Don't let me be alone.
Erica: Oh. I'm sorry, David. I can't see you right now.
David: No, I know, I know this isn't the best time right now, but Iím leaving town tomorrow, and before I do, I need to ask you if you're aware of what's been going on with Bianca lately.
Erica: Well, what's going on? Well, I mean, I know that she broke up with Lena. Is that what you mean? That's why she's been fighting this deep depression.
David: Are you sure that's the reason?
Erica: Well, I -- well, she was -- she was gone all night, and she came home this morning, and it really frightened me how she looked.
David: Last night?
Erica: Yes, she -- she said that she had been out late with Maggie. My mind was somewhere else, so -- why are you asking me about Bianca? What are you trying to say, David?
David: What Iím trying to say, Erica, is that I believe that something more is going on with her, and Iím pretty convinced that it involves Michael Cambias.
Erica: Michael Cambias? Oh, my God.
Maggie: Hey, I found great shrimpy things.
Bianca: Oh, Maggie, I mean it, stop it.
Maggie: Come on, come on.
Bianca: It's enough.
Maggie: Come on. No, they're already paid for. You might as well.
Bianca: All right, Myrtle.
Maggie: Hey, it could be a lot worse, you know. Being like Myrtle -- big red hair, always being the smartest person in the room. Hey, let's make a pact to grow up like Myrtle.
Bianca: I can't even think about next week, let alone 50 years from now.
Maggie: So we'll take baby steps.
Bianca: What's the point in making any plans? Things never turn out the way you expect them to. Did you know that Lena offered me a ring?
Maggie: Like a proposal?
Bianca: Yeah, exactly like.
Maggie: You know, I really think you should consider telling her what happened. You need her right now.
Bianca: No, Maggie, I canít. It'll make her feel guilty about her connection to Michael Cambias, and --
Maggie: No, no, no. She loves you. And right now, you need everyone who loves you so much around you.
Bianca: Maggie, Lena is the last person that I can tell about this.
Bianca: Because if she knew, she wouldn't feel the same about me.
Maggie: Of course that's not true.
Bianca: Why do you say that? I mean, I don't feel the same about me.
Jack: My God, she looks so much like my sister Christine here.
Liza: You know, for what it's worth, Jack, the consensus was that she was a very lucky girl.
Jack: I have to find her.
Tad: I just spoke to Anna Devane. They're going to set up a police search without waiting for 24 hours.
Jack: Thank you. Thank you very much.
Tad: They're going to treat it as if she were a member of a cop's family. Apparently, they think of you as one of them.
Jack: Well, I doubt very much that that's the way Greenlee thinks of me tonight.
Juan Pablo: Greenlee, I won't let you be alone.
Greenlee: I need to have someone. I always have, but I didn't always know it.
Juan Pablo: I will be your someone, but we don't have to make love.
Juan Pablo: No. That will happen another time, when you feel better. And when it does, there will be no tears. Not before, and I guarantee you, not after.
Greenlee: You're such a wonderful man.
Juan Pablo: You're safe here, Greenlee. I won't let anyone hurt you, including me.
Ryan: Look at you. You look like death.
Alexander: I'm fine.
Ryan: You're not. You're all shaking. I think you got heat stroke or something. Let me call you an ambulance.
Alexander: Listen, just make sure that I get to Vegas, ok? I'll make it worth your while.
Ryan: Ok. Have it your way, old man.
Michael: Come on now, how long have we known each other? A little flight to Tijuana. Listen, I can pay you -- hello?
Maggie: You know, I'll always feel the same way about you.
Maggie: You will always be you, and I will always be me. Nothing will ever change that, no matter what.
Bianca: Maggie, if you hadn't been there for me to tell you, I think I would have gone crazy.
Maggie: You know you can always count on me, don't you? Always.
Bianca: Thank you.
Maggie: You know I love you.
Bianca: Yeah, I know.
Erica: So Maggie was protecting Bianca from Michael Cambias.
David: Yes. But if you had seen the look on her face --
David: Erica, I don't believe the state she's in has anything to do with a broken love affair.
Erica: All right, fine. But what, then? What are you actually saying, David?
Erica: You don't mean that Michael --
David: I can't be sure.
Erica: But --
Erica: Well, you certainly wouldn't have come over here unless you thought --
David: The worst. Yes.
Erica: Oh. Oh, my baby.
David: Erica, Iíve spoken with Anna. Now, she's going to keep a real close watch over Bianca, make sure nothing else happens to her.
David: And she'd be happy to speak with you if you just want to call her, all right? Now, Iím going to be gone for just a few short days, and you know that I would do anything I can for Bianca and for you.
Erica: Yes. Thank you, David. Could you just -- could you just go now?
David: I'm sorry I had to bring this to you.
Erica: I know. Thank you.
David: I'm sorry to hear that.
On the next "All My Children" --
Mary: Please, Jack, work with me, for Greenlee.
Kendall: You are going to be a lot less sympathetic to Greenlee when you hear this.
Greenlee: Unleash your inner hedonistic selfish playboy.
Michael: You know, I've had both of your daughters. And I'm going to have you.
